14 For all who are led by the Spirit
of God are sons of God.
15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to
put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of
adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba
16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring
us] that we are children of God.
17 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and
fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share
His suffering if we are to share His glory.
18 [But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
(this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about
to be revealed to us and in us and for us and [b]conferred on us!
19 For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs
earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the
disclosing of their sonship].
20 For the creation (nature) was subjected to [c]frailty (to futility,
condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part,
but by the will of Him Who so subjected it—[yet] with the hope21 That nature
(creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption
[and gain an entrance] into the glorious freedom of God’s children.
22 We know that the whole creation [of irrational creatures] has been moaning
together in the pains of labor until now.
23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the
firstfruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come]
groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and
the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God’s sons).
24 For in [this] hope we were saved. But hope [the object of] which is seen is
not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees?
Romans 8:14-24 AMPC
God is spirit and reality is in the
spirit before it manifests in the physical. Creation is a manifestation of what
was always in the heart and mind of God.
Churches built around the presence
of God; they are full of Him on the contrary, those churches that are built by
people are full of people. Church planting should not be about churches being
full of people but full of God.
Sons of manifestation want to see
things they have never seen before. To be where you have never been and see
what you have not seen you must do what you have never done before.
Divine revelation unveils what is
locked up in the spirit.
The purpose of hearing truth is not
to inform you to puff up in pride but to transform you to humility as a son of
It reconstructs our genetic code fashioning you according to your divine DNA.
We have to disconnect from where we
are and reconnect to where God is. This calls for a disconnection from the past
in to the present truth.
God is not known through education
but by experiencing him. It takes an encounter with the Divine and His truth to
transform us through experience in levels and dimensions.
It is the goodness of God that
brings transformation as opposed to the greatness of men.
There are three levels of Sonship:
- Identity. This denotes stature, position and rank. God
desires us to know our position.
- Maturity. We are to grow in maturity in experiential
stature, identity and position in God.
- Authority. Sons move in authority and the ability to
function based on their identity.
Everyone in the human race has a
name given to them by God. It is not the name your parents have given you. It
is a heavenly name. Your divine name propels you in the realm of the spirit.
This name encompasses all that you are; your destiny, assignment, conscription
It is a name that propels you into
the realms of the supernatural and gives you power to confront principalities
and powers of darkness.
We are to partner with God on the
strength our names.
This name is written on your
spiritual throne and the divine scroll concerning your life. Christ spoke of
the volumes of books written about him. Luke 4: 17-21
Spirit beings are comprised of life
and energy. The more spiritual you are the more spiritual energy you have. The
more energy you have the more capacity you have. This energy activates divine
thoughts, knowledge and positive memories
Throne is an installation,
disposition and the place of deployment into an assignment. It is the place
where you are initiated into the realm of authority, power, influence and
And He raised us up together with
Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because
we are] in Christ Jesus,
Ephesians 2:6 AMP
We are seated with Christ on the
context of your throne. This verse denotes the position that we have in Christ.
When we occupy our position on our
throne that is when God causes you to manifest as a son on the earth.
The throne is where you are
transfigured and you have the impartation of God to demonstrate and manifest
the presence of God on earth.
The throne is a garrison of influence power and authority that precedes
manifestation on the face of the Earth.
Our scrolls mandate each one of us
responsibilities for administration in the realms of heaven. Manifestation of
the sons of God is about the administration of the dispensation of the kingdom
And he said to him, Well done,
excellent bond servant! Because you have been faithful and trustworthy in a
very little [thing], you shall have authority over ten cities.
Luke 19:17 AMPC
The reward of stewardship is ruling
cities. It is about governing galaxies. Every galaxy is waiting for the
manifestation of the light of the sons of God.
6 Who, although being essentially
one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes
which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be
eagerly grasped or retained,
7 But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to
assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born
a human being.
Phillipians 2:6-7 AMPC
Jesus did not do anything out of his
divinity but laid aside every thing for the sake of the mission and assignment
he had on earth.
When we willingly forsake our words
for the words of God that is when we become true sons. This is faith at work
that qualifies us to be sons.
Sons speak less and hear more. They
speak what they hear from the Father fulfilling their obedience to the Father
without mincing words.
Christ rebuke of the pharisees was
about giving petulant responses to those rebelling against him but he was
speaking what the Father was telling him.
We should resist the temptation to succeed on our own wit.
Only those that are dead to self can
be entrusted to kingdom realities; holiness and power. Death is painful and
humiliating but it is the only way to glorify God.
A son will remain dead until the
resurrecting phenomenon takes full course. The spirit of God raises
the son to glory.
Our faith is void without the death
and resurrection of Christ. All things pertaining to sonship is connected to
Christ could not rule unless he was
declared king through death. It is through this that we also rule.
Coming into resurrection is
exaltation and adoption into sonship.
3 For we who have believed (adhered
to and trusted in and relied on God) do enter that rest, in accordance with His
declaration that those [who did not believe] should not enter when He said, As
I swore in My wrath, They shall not enter My rest; and this He said although
[His] works had been completed and prepared [and waiting for all who would
believe] from the foundation of the world.
4 For in a certain place He has said this about the seventh day: And God rested
on the seventh day from all His works.
Hebrews 4:3-4 AMPC
The most excellent name is the name of a son. And Christ got this name as a
reward after the resurrection.
The Son is the radiance and only
expression of the glory of [our awesome] God [reflecting God’s Shekinah glory,
the Light-being, the brilliant light of the divine], and the exact
representation and perfect imprint of His [Father’s] essence, and upholding and
maintaining and propelling all things [the entire physical and spiritual
universe] by His powerful word [carrying the universe along to its
predetermined goal]. When He [Himself and no other] had [by offering Himself on
the cross as a sacrifice for sin] accomplished purification from sins and
established our freedom from guilt, He sat down [revealing His completed work]
at the right hand of the Majesty on high [revealing His Divine authority],
Hebrews 1:3 AMPC
When man fell, the life giving
spirit left the earth and then corruption entered the Earth. Life in the spirit
was lost and the life of man was then restricted to corruptible blood.
And Jesus replied to him, It is
written, Man shall not live and be sustained by (on) bread alone but by every
word and expression of God.
Luke 4:4 AMPC
Man shall not live by bread alone
but by the word of God. This denotes fellowship with the Divine where there
impartation of life.
We are to live not only by the
physical blood in the body but by the divine energy from God's holy presence.
The identity of a Hebrew son does
not come from birth but by adoption after a condition of maturity being
attained. There is a quality the father was looking for in the heart of his son
over a period of time. Once this was complete, he would present his son in
front of other men as his son.
It takes the process of obedience to
grow into a son. Jesus completed and fulfilled this when the Father said;
"This day you have become my son." Matthew 3:17
Purpose causes us to be qualified to be called sons of God. When we mature as
sons we have accepted the responsibility of carrying out the mandate of the
Sons are called to be kings and
priests to rule in heavenly places with Christ.
Our perception of government and
rule is perverted by earthly example tainted by self-ambition, bureaucracy,
self-advancement. The Government of God is the communication of how, when and
why (wisdom and mercy of God) a people should live.
The authority given to sons is the
ability to minister in God's power and blessings as priests and prophets.
The word blessing has been corrupted
in meaning today. Only priests can invoke blessings with authority.
