Good afternoon India. Hope your day in His presence was a blessing.
This is chapter 4 of the Holy Nation.
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Matthew 16:16 KJV
We have spoken in the previous session about the revelation which was put on Apostle Peter which causes Jesus Christ to respond by building His Church.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Matthew 16:17-18 KJV
Jesus is revealing to all the Apostles and Prophets how He is going to build His Church. He is saying the Mind of God is going to bring Revelation to them and this Revelation shall become foundation or rock upon which He will build His Church.
This foundation has to carry the blueprint of two tracks as seen by Peter.
All the revelations we carry as Apostles; Prophets and Scribes have to be tested and be made to run on the rail of these two tracks:
1. The Christ of the Living God.
2. The Son of the Living God.
1. The Christ is His Economy or His Grace; and the source of this economy has to be the Living God.
2. The Son is His relationship and how He connects to the Father.
It is on the Revelation of His Grace and His Sonship where He will build His Church.
Now i have shown the first group that builds on the grace or gifting which is not from the Living God.
I promised that today i will deal on the second group which builds only on His Grace and which is the correct Grace.
They build on the Christ-hood of the True Living God and there are signs that follow to prove that it is indeed the correct grace.
The problem with these is that as much as it is the correct revelation of The Christ of the Living God; they do not carry the other half of this revelation WHICH IS THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
They carry Gifting (the Christ) without Relationship (the Son). This is the crux of BUILDING THE HOLY NATION.
This is the stage where Apostle Ricci Hausley met me. It took me a long time to understand this missing link.
He always said: Son that is a good gifting/performance but it is not relational.
Which means It is the correct Grace (Christ Economy) but there is no Son (Relationship) it it.
Today in Africa we are left with the competition of how much Grace is in which church and many will flock in that church.
It is not Relational therefore it must have Competition.
The colonial master came to Africa and made sure that no Nation will rise again. Through their Social Engineering Programs they designed Competition and Hatred or Discrimination among Tribes.
They rewrote our own Tribal History which left us as permanent enemies in one nation.
When Tribes are at war The Nation will never be built. We want to prove which tribe is stronger than the other. They wrote a history that tells of one tribe stronger than others and we spend time trying to disapprove that history.
These Tribal wars which are in Africa are a reflection of Tribal wars in our church congregations
For as long as we see one church more graced than the other; we shall not see the Holy Nation. We are Transactional and not Relational.
We chase Power at the expense of Relationship. We therefore miss the identity of the Holy Nation and we are stuck in the Identity of The Christian Nation.
When we only embrace the Christ of the Living God but reject The Son of the Living God we are not a Holy Nation but just a mere Christian Nation.
Is this Accidental or is it a Perfect Trap in our Revelation? We shall see in the next installment.
