God Was Pleased To Reveal His Son In Me

 

 

 

 

 

Mystery, faith, salvation and awaking to Christ’s likeness within us, adoption and sonship, being in the family, discovering the Word in scripture, and living from union, we discuss this and more with Matthew Hester in a passionate conversation around the love of God. Matthew is an author, pastor of Dominion Church (Greer SC), and founder of Hester Ministries and Present Truth Academy.

QUOTES

“The stress most of us carry is we try to be something we already are.”

“…But a Huiothesia baptism was not backward baptism it was forward baptism.  Why? Because this is not about what you have done this is about where you’re headed.”

“Adoption doesn’t make us sons (we already are sons) it speaks to our placement, to our sonship.”

“When I awake, I will awake in His likeness.”

“In the evangelical church, in particular, but a large portion of the church by extension, so much of what we preach and so much of what we offer is about trying to get God into us. What if we shift the focus to awakening to the fact that He’s already there.”

Regarding conversion, “Paul’s own account of his conversion (in Galatians 1:15-16) he says, “the day it pleased God to reveal Himself in me.”

“Could it be that when we’re leading someone into salvation it’s about, “Hey listen, it’s time to wake up. It’s time to understand that this is who you are. You don’t have to pray a secret (or specific) prayer to get Jesus in you.”

“I preach Christ to awakened hearts.”

“The Father wants the John genesis to take over the Genesis genesis.”

“Our ability to repent is proof we have the mind of Christ. If you didn’t have the mind of Christ, you wouldn’t feel the need to repent.”

“Who’s the lover of your soul, is it the bible or is it Jesus?”

“When you pray, who do you pray to, do you pray to the bible, no, you pray to Jesus. You pray in His name. Yours not praying in the name of scripture”

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord
