Establishing Kingdom Series: Part 1


1 Corinthians 3:10-11

10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise master builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one must be careful how he builds. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.

We need to value the Apostolic gift more. With this, we also need to understand the Apostolic still functions today. As I’ve worked in various communities, I find this has become more and more obvious. I used to think it was obvious. “Continue in the teachings of the Apostles,” the word says and, “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets”. We need the Apostolic, but we never hear who these people are? Today we only hear about Pastors, Teachers, Elders, Evangelists, and if your lucky true Prophets. One of the things Satan has carefully worked as is washing away the foundations.

In Closing. I hope this has encouraged you and brings an awareness of this area into your life. It is a desperate prayer need for this country of Australia, and globally. Australia, in particular, is close to my heart as I’ve been sent to slave here, and there are some very clear reasons it struggles in this area, and most of it boils down to pride and irritation with authority figures. Please keep Australia in your prayers.

Many Blessings, QSP.

Relational Difficulties

#Focusing On The Road Set Before You#

There are many things which can distract and draw your attention from the things that you are to be doing. Many times relationships can surprise you and take a turn for the worst, and become perhaps quiet damaging. It is time to step away from such things after trying to reconcile and adjust to new rhythms and styles. This is one distracting things which can consume a lot of our daily lives, but we need to be ready to go the extra mile time and again. It seems like a huge ask when things aren’t that pleasant and there is constant strife in the relationship. Strife means, “a differing on fundamental principles”. It is the thing Jesus was speaking of when he said, “and the enemies of a mans life will be the members of his own household”. And again when he speaks about “dividing two against three”, and “mother against son, and daughter against her father”. These speak about a change in direction. See when Christ comes into our lives, his truth permeates ALL of our existence. Everything becomes different, and the way we think changes. This is also known as the renewing of your mind. We cannot exercise friendship with the things that are evil and be a trusted companion of God’s. It is impossible. You will be in both camps and God says he will spit out the lukewarm on the day of judgement. Our loyalties now rest with the King. Even though our families might revile us or reject us it is important to not loose heart, and remember Jesus Christ went through all these same things, and this is the reason he spoke of them. Praise God for that! I love Jesus for leading us on the straight and narrow road. The bible actually calls that way, “narrow and hard is the way which leads to life”. It is tough man, and it sometimes gets immensely hard, but there is always hope in the Father. Hallelujah. Amen.

God bless you in the Love of Christ,
