What is Man?

What is
Enosh"Enosh" means mortal man
that you are mindful of him, and the son of Adam that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than Elohim and crowned him with glory and honor. Psalm 8:4-5

Who Are the Sons of Light?

Here is an excerpt from my new book Gentle which is now available for pre-order on Amazon as an eBook : Order of glory is imperative to understanding the masculine and feminine dynamic. A tree is upheld by its roots that dig deep and spread out in the soil. The seed and roots are its “masculine” initiation hard at work while its boughs and fruit are its “feminine” glory. The woman is the glory of the man in the same way. They are one like the tree, each serving their respective roles. Both are necessary. Paul illuminates us to the ...

What is the Doctrine of Sonship?

This is the doctrine of sonship, as it so far stands. It is part of our soon-to-be-released 170-page confession of faith which will be the spearhead of an entirely new initiative within the Church. Stay tuned. Men and women are regenerated as sons and daughters of God by the same faith of Abraham and Sarah[1] and become part of Christ’s Family as a child receives a gift, without claim of merit or paying any price.[2] II. Through the Spirit of huiothesia, meaning sonship, men are received and glorified to take after Christ’s own image as Son of God,[3] who is ...

Are Husbands Lords?

Being able to study scripture so deeply and efficiently as we now can is one of the fantastic things of our period of time for the Church. The tools which have become freely available in the last fifteen years via the internet have enabled virtually everyone in the Church to study the scripture like never before. Those who were able to study the scripture exegetically, hermeneutically, linguistically, expositorily, etc. were only those with ready access to a library that contained the commentaries, lexicons, and concordances, or were able to afford to own their own collection. Now anyone can search, cross-reference, ...

I know, O LORD, that the way of Adam is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.

Jeremiah 10:23

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8-9

“A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”

Deuteronomy 22:5

“the word of the Lord is to them an object of scorn; they take no pleasure in it.”

Jeremiah 6:10b

Weekly Devotionals. Here’s the truth, uncut. It is not in man or woman to direct their own way. Neither you nor I get to to decide what the way of a man or woman should or should not be. Rebelling against His way is abominable. God is that serious about men being masculine and women being feminine. There is one ministry and one Word disseminated to both men and women. His sons are responsible for guarding it and his daughters owe it to themselves to understand and be embellished by it. Digests are sent no more than once a week and may be unsubscribed from easily. God created them male and female, and he blessed them. They fell short of the glory God bestowed upon each of them. He then redeemed them and called them sons and daughters.
