Living In The Favour Of God #2
Living In The Favour Of God
The goal isn't to live forever, but to leave something that does!.
The prodigal son took from his father and squandered his inheritance, which led him to appreciate what riches he once had at his disposal. We too, can live within the confides of the favour of God and yet never fully appreciate it.
When God builds, He builds specifically and with an inheritance in mind. Living in the favour of God, begins with the revelation of how God perceives us and how we perceive ourselves. Son or Servant? The difference is motive!
All we have is found in the finished work of Calvary. One cannot "take authority" for authority is given. We either have it or we don't. As we saw last week Peters revelation of who Jesus is, was the foundation stone one which we (the church) stands.
Hebrews 4:1 assures us the promise to our forefathers still stands for us today. It hasn't been "updated or modified like some software package." The promise still stands for those living in obedience to it.
Entering the rest which many fail (and have failed) to enter, requires not only obedience but a revelation of who we are in Christ - Sons and heirs of promise!
Monthly Prayer And Fasting
What a POWERFUL month we have had with amazing breakthroughs, salvation's healing's, vision ownership with a week of prayer and fasting which concluded with some powerful testimonies of personal revelation of Gods love. His miraculous provision and an emphatic presence of unity and one-ness and such heartfelt worship, which brought a tangible presence of God. Many people just wanted the fast to continue. Our desire to be a church OF prayer rather than a church which HAS prayer, makes it a priority for our church.
UPCOMING events IN 2019:
Club 180 - Foundations Group

PRE-SERVICE PRAYER 9:20 Am
Each Sunday morning, (prior to our morning service which commences at 10 am), a team of people meet in the green room to pray. (9:20-9:45 am) If you have a passion to pray for our vision to reach others with the gospel; uphold our team and see God's favour in our meetings, feel free to join us.
Our monthly prayer and fasting meeting continues on the first Thursday evening of the month at the end of each lesson of Rock Solid. 8:45 pm.
As many of us are studying on Thursdays, it's a great opportunity to take advantage of the evening and combine our monthly prayer with the teaching and training group. If you want to join us just for prayer, then join us at: 9:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Prayer must accompany our actions. There are many benefits in prayer, however; it is a spiritual discipline essential for personal growth.
ROCK SOLID Term FOUR Began 24th OCTOBER 2019
and concludes Thursday 5th December.
Registration are now open for semester FOUR. Last semester we had over 25 people registered and we welcomed overseas and distance learners too. Each semester has its own manual, and they will be available for pickup one week prior to commencement. Distance students will have them mailed out prior to course start date..
We are looking into live streaming the lessons in the future and presently, the audio for each class is available to registered students only.
This 32 week course is covered over 4 eight week semesters, which commenced in February 2019 and concludes in December 2019. Each study requires weekly homework and a term assessment. Students of the course will learn how living by kingdom principles develops character and a faith filled life. A minimum of 80% attendance is required to participate in the presbytery.
The course is a continuance of our Kingdom Life course and forms part of our personal development plan to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference.
Discovering your "personal fit" is essential to personal growth and our "Living Essentials" course is a great place to start. Pick up our brochures, or visit our courses page and sign up now for 2019.

SUNDAYS TEACHING IN DECEMBER IS:
"THE PURSUIT OF FREEDOM"
"You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free" JOHN 8:32.
Our pursuit is not merely to experience freedom as a one off, but to pursue it. Daily. Join us as we look at four keys to live free. To KNOW GOD - TO FIND FREEDOM. TO DISCOVER PURPOSE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Our miracle offering is taken each year to raise finances and invest into people; not pay bills. Many people use this time to see personal growth and Gods miraculous provision into their life on behalf of others.
We believe in a kingdom perspective towards life, and that means our focus is beyond our own needs. Would you prayerfully consider how you can support or invest into our miracle fund which will be used to train faithful servants?
A good way to invest, is to faithfully pray to see an increase in resources that can form part of the plan to miraculously give.
other events coming up:
This twelve week course forms part of our ongoing training for the Eden family, which will conclude with a prophetic presbytery with invited prophets who will speak into candidates and church life.
