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 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 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 hope
21 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.
Romans 8:14-21 AMPC
3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being,
the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and
very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and
propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering
Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down
at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,
4 [Taking a place and rank by which] He Himself became as much superior to
angels as the glorious Name (title) which He has inherited is different from
and more excellent than theirs.
Hebrews 1:3-4 AMPC
Christ is the lens through which we
can see and project who God is.
God sees us the way he made us and
we have an obligation to see ourselves the way that God made us. God believes
in you because you have potential despite your struggles.
When Adam was created he was a
spirit being. Adam functioned as a human on the efficacy of his
spiritual being. This is the same for as sons of manifestation. Our
native element is in the spirit. This is what enables us to function as
living beings and gives us the capacity to govern.
When Adam sinned he became a human
being and lost his status as a living being. His life in the spirit
ceased as sin separated him from the source of Life who is God.
They experienced death which means
that they lost their capacity to function.
Jesus came in human form but he had
the nature of God. He was conceived by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit.
We have the opportunity in Christ to become living beings.
Those who fulfill purpose are living
beings. We have the opportunity to become Spirit beings in Christ and grow to
maturity to the fullness and stature of Christ. Ephesians 4:13
God dwells in the realm of our
spirit being to reveal to us the scroll of our destiny which in turn ignites
purpose in us. Intimacy with God leads us to the place of manifestation
via transfiguration. This transfiguration process transforms us to be living beings.
Our souls and bodies becomes the
temple of the Holy Spirit serving as an interface between God and the world
around us. God wants us to manifest his works through us. Galatians 5:25
Transformation is not behavioural
change but change to manifest as sons of light. This enables us to tap
into our spiritual DNA that God set in us that gives us identity.
20 Asked by the Pharisees when the
kingdom of God would come, He replied to them by saying, The kingdom of God
does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display,
21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold,
the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding
Luke 17:20-21 AMPC
The above scripture shows us that
God wants to come and make his home in us.
7 Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground
and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a
8 And the Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden [delight]; and
there He put the man whom He had formed (framed, constituted).
9 And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant
to the sight or to be desired—good (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of
life also in the center of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of [the
difference between] good and evil and blessing and calamity.
10 Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided
and became four [river] heads.
Genesis 2:7-10 AMPC
You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering,
the carnelian, topaz, jasper, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and
emerald; and your settings and your sockets and engravings were wrought in
gold. On the day that you were created they were prepared.
Ezekiel 28:13 AMPC
There was intercourse between heaven
and earth. Heaven was not separated from earth like it is now.
There were two gardens, the garden
of God and the garden on earth. The garden on earth was connected to the garden
The garden of God preceded the
garden of Eden. The garden of heaven was where God had fellowship with man.
These two gardens were connected by
the River of God.
10 Mercy and loving-kindness and
truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Psalm 85:10 AMPC
The tree of life existed in the
garden of God. The Garden of Eden was made for man so that man may dwell in it;
it was a projection of what was in the spirit.
Tree of knowledge of good and evil was on the garden of man.
The tree of life existed in the Garden of God.
When the eyes of Adam and Eve were opened after eating of the fruit they were
cut off from heavenly access. They heard God but could not meet with him.
When you lose your position in the
heavens you lose it on earth. We fail to manifest because we are not correctly
But whoever takes a drink of the
water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the
water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing,
bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.
John 4:14 AMPC
We become God's garden that is
connected to the garden of God when we become saved. The rivers from your belly go to water your jurisdiction and
domain in order to bring revelation and restoration of
It shall come to pass in the latter
days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be [firmly] established as the
highest of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations
shall flow to it.
Isaiah 2:2 AMPC
A mountain is a place of Kingdom
authority. Many waters also denote many people - nations.
We are to live in creative light not
We will never attain sonship if we
are linked to our fathers and mothers because these are earthly distinctions.
We need to touch base with Kingdom distinctions devoid of human traditions that
limit our priestly considerations as sons of manifestation.
49 And stretching out His hand
toward [not only the twelve disciples but all] His adherents, He said, Here are
My mother and My brothers.
50 For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister
Matthew 12:49-50 AMPC
Nothing in Christ's sonship was
automatic. He had to earn it through obedience. Christ did not use his divinity
to get things the easy way.
Although He was a Son, He learned
[active, special] obedience through what He suffered
Hebrews 5:8 AMPC
Manifestation of sonship is through
suffering by obedience.
A true son will reveal His Father;
they live to serve and do the will of the Father; His Glory and
Praise. They are dead to self.
God chastises sons not children. A
true son allows God to chastise them.
For the Lord corrects and
disciplines everyone whom He loves, and He punishes, even scourges, every son
whom He accepts and welcomes to His heart and cherishes.
Hebrews 12:6 AMPC
It is through faith that we
relinquish things that make us a man. David had the power to kill Saul;
but because Saul was anointed he opted not to kill him and risked relinquishing
his title as kin
Sons let go of certain ways of doing
things because it would not glorify God.
