I wanted to share with you some of the comments that were given concerning this last Youth Conference that was held at Gold Springs Academy in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. For me personally it was an exciting as well as a refreshing time of spiritual renewal. I was very much aware of the presence of The Lord, and His desire that He has for us as a Father, who wants to see His children walking in righteousness; that we as His children might achieve the goal of sonship by virtue of the way that He has provided it to us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
If I were to summarize the experience of the meeting spiritually, the scripture reference that provoked this thought for me personally, is found in Isaiah 30; for it gives us a view of how He, The Father, views the activity of the church of the First Born, the Holy Place people in this critical space of time and eternity.
Isaiah 30:1-2-The chapter starts by identifying the problem;
(KJV Strong’s) 1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
2 That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
As the Word of The Lord continues it deals with the consequences that come because of the position and the lack of relationship; for His children desire to find some other source of strength, peace and security, then that which He, the Father can provide and give to them. He, the prophet, says the problem is not in the environment for it is in the hearts of His children.
(KJV Strong’s) 9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: 10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
Isaiah 30:12-14-Clearly defines the response of The Father to such a rebellion and sedition concerning the plans and purpose that He had put into place concerning our position of salvation and the predestinated, fore ordinated goal that He had set for us
Even as it is so, The Father’s attitude toward the situation, even in judgement; it is always redemptive if the hearts of His children repent and ask for His forgiveness.
Isaiah 30:15 (KJV Strong’s) 15 For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:
If you would really want to understand the perspective that The Lord has concerning your position of commitment to THIS WORD, I suggest that you read the entirety of this chapter, keeping in mind what is being spoken and as you read the various testimonies, ask the Lord to examine your own heart and we each should assess our own personal relationship to The Father in light of this particular word of Sonship.
TESTIMONIES FROM THE YOUTH CONFERENCE
The Youth Camp of 2018 was from Wednesday the 8th of August to Monday the 13th of August. We experienced the visitation of GOD in a different and more powerful dimension that we’ve never experienced before. You could say that the theme for this camp was Lifestyle Change. Read more…
As the days went by, the fire in the camp only grew brighter and brighter. The message in the camp was wholly about a LIFESTYLE CHANGE and CONSECRATION TO GOD. The word came in various forms from various vessels, but it was apparent that God wanted to deal with this issue in our lives. Read more…
