Er is geen ander woord dat ik kan gebruiken voor de afgelopen 2 maanden. Mijn denken is veranderd over de meest uiteenlopende zaken. De afgelopen 2 maanden waren werkelijk fenomenaal! Ik heb al heel veel nieuwe dingen meegemaakt en ontdekt, nieuwe kanten gezien van God. Ik heb zelfs het gevoel dat ik in die 2 maanden dat ik hier nu in Redding woon en naar BSSM ga al zoveel meer heb geleerd dan in alle voorgaande jaren. Er is zoveel veranderd in mijn denken en daarnaast is er ook al veel veranderd aan mijn karakter.
Ik kwam zelf wel tegen iets grappigs aan namelijk; dat je hier aankomt in het 1e jaar en denkt dat het bij jou allemaal wel goed zit met je identiteit (want het eerste jaar gaat vooral in op identiteit) vervolgens kom je erachter dat veel van wat je alle jaren als normaal had aangenomen nog wel verandert kan worden om meer te gaan leven als de persoon en potentie die in je is; Een kind van de Allerhoogste.
Hier beschrijven ze het als volgt; we zijn een kind van de Koning en we hebben een paleis, maar omdat we zo gewend zijn aan rommel om ons heen leven we als een zwerver in een paleis, we maken het er zelf naar, omdat we denken dat dat is wie we nog steeds zijn; een zwerver, maar we zijn kinderen van de Koning! En als we ons dat gaan realiseren gaan er dingen veranderen, we beginnen ook daadwerkelijk als een prins te leven. En omdat we ook de autoriteit hebben van de Koning mogen we met Hem samenwerken en alle andere mensen die nog niet weten wie ze zijn helpen om te zien wat ze in Zijn ogen zijn. Ook gaan we dan met zijn allen zo’n diepe impact hebben op de wereld buiten ons, want in plaats van alle rijkdom voor onzelf te houden hebben wij de opdracht gekregen Zijn licht overal te verspreiden. Vanuit die mindset van Zijn kinderen en cultuur van eer gaan we de wereld veranderen! Als je weet dat je een prins bent ga je je heel anders gedragen en ook de mensen om je heen gaan anders met je om.
Dit zijn mijn aantekeningen van een bijzondere preek over doorzetten die Kris Vallotton gaf, het was de eerste keer dat hij deze boodschap deelde;
Farmers mentality; we don’t have the mind set of planting something now and harvesting in 5 years from now. You are always eating last years harvest.
In Weaverville they were in business and giving 35% away of their money. When you are in ministry it is not about making money, it is about helping a lot of people. Out of all the years of tearful sowing, you will get a joyful harvest.
A generous life eventually builds treasure on earth and in Heaven.
Every generation has something amazing that they’re good at. You have strength if you link the generations. What you go through helps you to see a part of God that other generations or people not see. Learn through what your parents or grandparents have gone through. You learn things that you didn’t experience through others experiences. Working hard is Kingdom. This generation has a can do motivation. Right now and right here, why not? 2 corinthians 4:7-12 People give up so easy. 2 Peter 1:3-9
Don’t quit! Especially: Don’t quit on your character! You haven’t shed blood in your fight against sin. You haven’t strived so hard against sin that you died on a cross. The only ones that are not disciplined are not legitimate sons. Homosexuals; even though I have a penis I am not sure if I should have a woman with a vagina. Children need a father and a mother; not 2 fathers or mothers. When you are young you are always attracted to the same sex, in puberty it only changes. The passion for a brother and father is normal, passion to have man in your life. Pieces that you need that your wife can’t give you; you need fathers or brothers for that. Homosexuality not same sex attraction; same sexually attraction. The way character is build is; I resist wrong and I grow in Holy Ghost character muscles. The temptation to do wrong is humanity; temptation is not sin, the only way I will build character is resisting the sin. On earth the idea that you strive against sin or temptation. One woman man, not by appetite, by choice. My appetite wants many women, my virtues want one. It is not what I want to have, it is about what I will. The idea that we have to resist something comfortable is not normal in our culture anymore. As soon as I stop fighting that thing that is against me I take away the ability to grow my character.
When you stop moving you stop making muscle. When you stop moving you stop resisting gravity. When you are laying in bed you don’t build muscle anymore. As soon as you say yes to a no, the day you stop resisting that you become like a jellyfish laying in your bed. Resist things that are not good for you; gravity, the reason why you build muscle it causes good things in life, if you jump of a building it will kill you. Those things that are against you are actually for you; not only you build muscle, you also get a reward in heaven. In other days they had more perseverance and hard work; does sound like anti grace,, but grace is the ability to resist. Take the grace that I gave you and with it fight sin. You know the worst temptation in your life? The one you have. “See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”
Hebrews 12:15 NIV
We all understand because we all have the same things going on. Friction and gravity is part of life. When you change your virtuous instead of your actions you become a virtuous man. There is a giant in every promised land. If you don’t have any you are a jellyfish; be careful to not spiritualize your disfunction! Jesus resisted it all the way to the cross. When you get to heaven this will be round 2. Angels have the same thing. God loves free will. The land that I fought for, I will not give giants room to give them space against them. This new generation has got rid of judgement and hell; you know why? Because we got rid of character. Hebrews 10:19-39 Talking about confidence and resisting sin. If you receive the grace of God and don’t use it to fight sin you have a hard judgement coming. Having faith to resist sin. The idea of everybody going to heaven is not biblical. You received grace to be righteous, you don’t need to sin because you have grace to resist it. Not your nature to sin, our nature is to resist it. Deeply concerned about not telling people the truth, but learning them the jellyfish way of coping with their lives. We live in great and glorious; there is a day coming of judgement. God doesn’t send people to hell, He did everything for you. It is not about wanting to, it is about will to. My will is what determines my outcome, my will comes from my spirit, want is from my soul.
The teachers are going to be hold accountable for what they did. You can’t over teach grace, however you can change the message of grace. The reason why people think like that is because they don’t want to resist them. People that are in sin alway feel condemned when you convict them and they look for someone to blame because they feel bad inside. How do I silence that inside voice? I change my virtuous.
If you don’t encounter a demon every once in a while you have to check if you are not going the same way. You have to stay alert in the promised land because there will be giants inside of your promised land. The muscle you gain by fighting the giant will result in gain in a lot different parts of your life. Use the muscle you gained by resisting that land to invade that land. What you learn from being a single person you want to have sex but you will not, what you did to resist sin makes your marriage strong. What we built against our enemy strengthens your marriage. It is the character that you build through resisting sin. You would’ve never had that by not resisting sin. Sustain yourself in letting them do something they like doing (like eating). How are we going to get them to multiply? God made sex fun! God is into pleasure, he created it. He is the God of pleasure; when He says do all of this good stuff, but don’t touch that. When God designed good, he created it for His own pleasure, when He did that but he says don’t do that, and you say that is fun, don’t do it. God is not saying No, he is Yes and amen.
God didn’t create hell for people, He did it for demons. My understanding of truth doesn’t allow that, God has been around for a while. He said to Peter; be right back. Relative to eternity it is a short time, relative to our understanding of time it is pretty long. We should not be like; “I have to figure it out until I understand everything for me to believe.” Many people don’t even know how their car works. Compared to God you don’t even have a brain. If all baby’s go to heaven should we all take abortions because that would have a heaven rate of 100%, if the child is born this is only 40%? God taught us justice. He has it figured out, we don’t exactly know how it works, He does. When we make up doctrines for things we don’t understand, we stop getting revelation because we accepted a false truth. Sometimes you don’t have an idea how it works. You think you understand God? He is far bigger wider than we could ever imagine and we can not understand or know everything about Him.
