You are meant to be connected

You are meant to be connected:  Benches and Ecclesias

by Bill Brady   Edited 11/28/2018

An ecclesia is a group of believers

  • gathered together
  • to function together
  • to do a specific work

Ecclesias come in many sizes.  Some are listed below from largest to smallest:

  • The Universal Ecclesia.
  • Apostolic Resource Centers (ARCs).  Worldwide there are many ARCs.  Ecclesia Framework (EF) was one of them.  We are now a family called One United Body.  This page was written when we were still EF.
  • Benches of 12.
  • Benches of 7.
  • Benches of 3.

Each ecclesia is a family.

  • A family is made up of members of the family.
  • Members of a family are in relationship with one another.

Each person who is part of an ecclesia is a member of that ecclesia.

  • Members of an ecclesia have relationships with one another.
  • Members of an ecclesia experience relationships as a connection.

Those connections are: 

  • to one another – to the members of the family
  • to the ecclesia – to the family as a whole

Each member of an ecclesia experiences: 

  • being gathered into the ecclesia
  • being connected to one another
  • being connected to the ecclesia

Each connection is a divine connection.

  • willed by Father
  • mandated by Jesus
  • experienced as a flowing together in Holy Spirit

These things are the common experience of all members of ecclesias.

  • These experiences are a little difficult to put into words.
  • They are experienced as a knowing by members of ecclesias.

Your spirit knows the reality of these experiences.

  • You know when you have been connected to another believer.
  • You know when you have been connected to a bench. 
  • You know when you have been connected to an ARC.
  • You know when a relationship is a connection.

You experience a connection as a flow of Holy Spirit

  • between you and another member of the ecclesia 
  • between you and the ecclesia

I believe that you know when there is a connection

  • between you and another member of the Universal Ecclesia.
  • between you and other members of an ARC.
  • between you and any ecclesia of any size.
  • between you and other members of a bench.

I see various types and levels of connection to an ARC:

  • As a member of one of the ARC’s benches of 3 or 12.
  • As an individual connected to one of the ARC’s bench of 3 as an advisor.
  • As a bench member of another ARC or ecclesia connected to the bench of 12.
  • This is the case when the ARC is functioning in unity with another ARC or ecclesia.
  • EF has this kind of connection with Company of Heaven Dwellers.
  • As a member of an ARC connected to receive from that ARC, but not functioning as a member of any bench.
  • These ARC members are connected by relationship, but not by responsibility.

As a member of a Tree of Life Dialog or Scroll Group you are experiencing being a member of an ecclesia.

  • Each Tree of Life Group is an ecclesia.
  • Each Tree of Life Group is a family.
  • Each Tree of Life Group has a bench of 3 made up of facilitators and co-facilitators.
  • Each Tree of Life Group functions as a bench of 12.

Benches of 12:

  • experience being a family
  • experience connection
  • function governmentally
  • experience growing up together into Manifest Sonship
  • build together according to their blueprint

As long as there are 12 or more members functioning as a bench then the ecclesia will function as a bench of 12.

Here are some of the functions of a bench of 12: 

  • We ascend into heavenly places together.
  • We explore and discover heavenly places together.
  • We do governmental actions for the ecclesia as we explore and discover.
  • We pioneer. Our mere presence in these heavenly places as pioneers opens them up for others to follow us.
  • Our most basic and foundational function as a bench is that we are a family.

Here are some elements of Exploration and Discovery:

  • We bring our light with us as we explore new areas in heavenly places.
  • Wherever we go our light reveals mysteries that were hidden.
  • We discover the reality of these places and the nature of how we are to function there.
  • This is revealed to us as we explore.
  • I believe that Exploration and Discovery is a mandate of every bench.
  • This is because we seek a revelation of the will of God for our bench.  In doing so we are seeking further revelation of the nature of the bench blueprint.

Here are some of the elements of doing governmental actions:

  • They are initiated by a corporate mandate.
  • By engaging the mandate the nature of the governmental action is revealed.
  • What is to be done is revealed.
  • How it is to be done is revealed.
  • Usually one member of the bench is mandated to lead the bench in the governmental action.
  • Each bench has a sphere of authority.
  • That sphere of authority can be for that ecclesia alone or as large as extending to the Universal Ecclesia.

It is not good that a man should be alone.  We are designed and destined to be connected to ecclesias and benches.

 

Moving Towards One United Body

Moving Towards One United Body

by Bill Brady

WHAT IS  JESUS DOING?  WHAT IS THE ECCLESIA TO DO?

  • JESUS IS BRINGING ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH BACK INTO ONENESS WITH HIM ON THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY. 
  • THE ECCLESIA IS CO-WORKING WITH HIM IN THIS WORK.  

THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY IS A FULFILLMENT OF EPHESIANS 1:19 -20,            “ in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.”

THE BENCH OF ONE IN ETERNITY IS A FULFILLMENT OF COLOSSIANS 1:16 – 20        He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.                                  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.                                  All things were created through Him and for Him.                                                                 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.                                                           And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.                                                           For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,  and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”

JESUS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE OVER ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH.

  • Jesus created all thing in heaven and on earth.
  • Everything is in Him.
  • Jesus is the head of the Ecclesia that Jesus may be head over all things.
  • Jesus died to reconcile all things back to Himself.
  • Jesus is gathering everything back to Himself.
  • All that has been gathered will be one in Him on the bench of One.
  • The Ecclesia is to co-work with Jesus to do this gathering back.

THE ECCLESIA IS TO BUILD ACCORDING TO ITS BLUEPRINT WHICH IS CHRIST.

THE ECCLESIA’S BLUEPRINT HAS THREE MANDATES:

  • To gather all men into Christ and His Ecclesia.
  • This is the work of harvesting the harvest.
  • To facilitate each man’s journey of developing into fully functioning Manifest Sonship.
  • This is the work of building the Ecclesia according to its Blueprint.
  • To gather everything in heaven and on earth back into Oneness with Jesus.
  • This is the work of answering creation’s groan.

WHAT IS OUR WORK?

  • We are co-gathers bringing everything in heaven and on earth back into oneness with Jesus.
  • In doing this we fully populate the bench of one in eternity.
  • This is the manifest son’s work of answering creation’s groan.

CREATION IS GROANING.

  • Groaning because creation is not functioning according to its blueprint.
  • Groaning because creation is outside of Christ because of the Fall.
  • Groaning because creation is not at its originally created frequency.
  • Men groan until they are fully one with Jesus.
  • All of creation groans until it is one with Jesus.

The Bride is Also the Body!

The Bride is Also the Body!

by Bill Brady

  • This revelation changes our understanding of the Ecclesia.
  • Jesus died for His Bride which is the Ecclesia.
  • We were never meant to be alone:  “It is not good that man should be alone.”
  • This is why God created Eve.  So that neither Adam or Eve would be alone.
  • This is why Jesus has a Bride.
  • We are designed to function as a part of the whole.
  • Jesus’ Bride is the New Jerusalem.

THERE IS A BLUEPRINT FOR ALL OF CREATION.

  • This is the scroll of the book that Jesus referred to in Psalm 40:6-8,

    “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
    My ears You have opened.
    Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
    Then I said, “Behold, I come;
    In the scroll of the book it is written of me.
    I delight to do Your will, O my God.”

    Everyone born into the earth has a destiny scroll that is part of the overall blueprint for creation.

JESUS HAS HIS OWN DESTINY SCROLL.

  • A destiny scroll is a personal blueprint.
  • Growing up as a young man.
  • A carpenter until He was thirty years old.
  • A traveling rabbi until His death.
  • Sitting on the throne with His Father until all of Creation is gathered back into oneness with Him.

THE UNIVERSAL ECCLESIA HAS A BLUEPRINT TO CORPORATELY BECOME JESUS’ BRIDE.

  • We corporately are the Bride.
  • We corporately develop into fully functioning Manifest Sonship.

WE EACH HAVE OUR OWN DESTINY SCROLL.

  • Developing into fully functioning Sonship.
  • Entering into fully functioning Manifest Sonship sitting on the throne with Jesus.

ARCS AND OTHER ECCLESIAS HAVE BLUEPRINTS TO BRING THE ECCLESIA INTO FULLY MANIFEST SONSHIP. 

  • Ecclesias have a blueprint to bring the ecclesia into fully functioning Sonship.
  • Worldwide there are many ARCs.
  • Ecclesia Framework is one of them.
  • Each ARC will build according to the Blueprint for the Ecclesia.
  • Each ARC has a Blueprint of its own.
  • Each ARC will bring its members into fully functioning Manifest Sonship according to that ARC’s specific blueprint.
  • The analogy that I see is that of the Tribes of Israel. Each tribe is part of Israel, but each tribe also has its own unique destiny for a unique function within Israel. It’s the same with ARCs.
  • I would suggest that each of us is destined to be connected to ARCs.
  • One primary connection for growth up into Jesus as the head.
  • Other connections for cross-pollination.

I SEE THAT THE TIME WILL COME WHEN ALL ARCS WILL HAVE COMPLETED THEIR BLUEPRINTS.

  • This time will come when Jesus’ corporate Bride / Wife is a corporate fully manifested son manifesting the fullness of His glory.
  • At that time the work of all ARCs will be finished.
  • Take a moment and behold us as this finished work.

 

  • You are seeing the reason for ARCs.
  • In addition to connections for developing into full manifest sonship, some will connect to a specific ARC to take their destined place in facilitating the development of others into fully manifesting sonship.

YOUR DESTINY SCROLL INCLUDES CONNECTION TO OTHERS TO FORM BENCHES.

  • Your connection to others on benches is part of your destiny.
  • None of us is meant to rule alone.
  • We rule together on benches.
  • I would suggest that apart from connecting to our destined benches we will not develop into fully manifesting sonship.
  • Much of that development occurs as we journey together as part of benches.

OUR DESTINY SCROLLS ARE INTERCONNECTED AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL.

  • We were never meant to walk alone with God.
  • Our destiny scrolls are interconnected at the highest level.
  • They are interconnected at the level of our oneness with Jesus.
  • Apart from our connection with one another we will not develop into a fully functioning Manifest Son.
  • Apart from this we will not build according to our scrolls.
  • Apart from this the Universal Ecclesia will not reach the tipping point that will accelerate her into becoming a corporate fully functioning Manifest Son.

WE ARE ALL CONNECTED TO ECCLESIAS

  • I see an Ecclesia as a group of believers working together to build according to a specific blueprint.
  • An ecclesia is a family.

OUR CONNECTION TO ANY ECCLESIA IS A CONNECTION TO INDIVIDUALS WITHIN THAT ECCLESIA. 

  • We experience connection to an ecclesia as a connection to people.
  • Those connections occur one by one.
  • We all know when we have been connected.
  • We also know when we have become one and are an ecclesia.

WE MUST NOT RESIST BECOMING ONE WITH ONE ANOTHER.  CHOSE TO CONNECT.

  • Unwillingness to commit to our destined connections holds us back from fulfilling our destinies.  Decide to be willing.
  • A sense of unworthiness holds us back.  Jesus has made us worthy.
  • Inability to work with less than perfect people holds us back.  We are able if we are willing.  Chose to see people as perfect in Jesus.
  • Not seeing the need to find our destined connections holds us back.  Your eyes have been opened to see that need by reading this page.
  • You will see your destined connections to others as a part of ARCs and on benches.
  • Take the step to honor others in the Ecclesia by connecting.
  • Through honor unity is easy.

WE CANNOT ENGAGE OUR PERSONAL DESTINY WITHOUT ENGAGING OUR CORPORATE DESTINY.

  • Our personal destiny scroll includes connection to others in an ARC and on benches.
  • It is impossible to separate our personal destiny from our corporate destiny.
  • Oneness with Jesus includes oneness with His Ecclesia.
  • This is because we are not individually the Bride of Christ.
  • We corporately are the Bride of Christ.
  • Jesus only has one Bride.

 WE ARE A CORPORATE BRIDE WITH A CORPORATE DESTINY.  NONE OF US CAN FULFILL OUR DESTINY ALONE! 

 

Being A House Not Being a House Church Group

Submitted to the body for dialog and further clarity.  Those things that have been revealed belong to us all.  We all can receive further revelation to  further “connect the dots”.

by Bill Brady

Being A House Not Being a House Church Group

We are not meant to repeat the New Testament pattern of house churches.

  • We have a glorious future understanding new heaven and new earth and how this is accessible now
  • That way no one camps before reaching the goal of manifest sonship.

There is a pattern in the time just before and after Pentecost.

  • Jesus told the 12 to wait in Jerusalem until they received the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • They had already received the Holy Spirit when Jesus breathed on them.
  • Now they were to receive the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • The 12 had had 3.5 years of being discipled personally by Jesus.
  • They still weren’t ready to be sent out.

Jesus kept them together in one place until then for a reason.

  • The Holy Spirit would finish the work that Jesus had begun.
  • Then Jesus would send the 12 out.
  • In Acts 1:8 Jesus sent them out to Jerusalem, then to Judea and Samaria, and then to the uttermost parts of the earth.
  • Even then, that sending is only a sending of the 12.
  • The 12 obeyed and taught the rest of the 120 and the new believers house by house beginning in Jerusalem.

Recently, the Lord told me, “I am building you a house”. 

  • This is what He said to David.
  • “A house” in this context is a father’s house, as in “in My Father’s house there are many dwelling places”.
  • A father’s house is the family that Father builds for a manifest son.
  • Every ecclesia, of whatever size, is a family.
  • Every family has a father.

Manifest sons function as a father.

  • A spiritual father is a servant leader.
  • A spiritual father is a facilitator.
  • A spiritual father gives themselves to their sons.
  • A spiritual father imparts sonship to their sons.
  • Spiritual fathers receive the ability to father from their own spiritual fathers.
  • Spiritual fathers father a spiritual generation of spiritual sons.
  • The size of that generation will reflect the sphere of authority of the spiritual father.

Abraham is the father of us all. 

  • Abraham became a father because God made him a father.
  • Everyone since Abraham is meant to receive fathering from Abraham.
  • There is meant to an unbroken chain of generations from Abraham.
  • That chain has been broken.
  • God has restored the chain of generations.
  • Once again every spiritual son is meant to grow up in his father’s house.

Every father’s house has many dwelling places.

  • Dwelling places are benches that sons of the house function on until they mature as a manifest son.
  • Until they have a house of their own they help build their father’s house.
  • Then they leave their father’s house to build a house of their own.
  • A son is not meant to leave his father’s house until he is sent by Father.
  • All of these elements involve co-working, co-building, co-creating, co-begetting and co-fathering.
  • They all involve benches of 3 and 12 for the Ecclesia not meeting locally to discuss topics

This explains why meeting in house churches is not the pattern for the heavenly ecclesia.

  • We are not designed to meet in a house.
  • We are a house.
  • We are fathers who begat and father houses.

You are destined to become an Everlasting Father!

You are destined to become an Everlasting Father!

Bill Brady  Updated 11/27/2018

Jesus is a Father.  

 

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;                                       And the government will be upon His shoulder.                                             And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor,                                      Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.                                            Of the increase of His government and peace                                                     There will be no end,                                                                                                   Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,                                              To order it and establish it with judgment and justice                                     From that time forward, even forever.                                                               The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

Jesus is a Father.  You will become a father too.

  • A child was born.
  • A Son was given.
  • That Son was called new names.

These new names are new functions.

  • Wonderful,
  • Counselor,
  • Mighty God,
  • Everlasting Father
  • and Prince of Peace.

Jesus became a father.

  • This happened when He was called Everlasting Father.
  • Father put an Everlasting Father on the throne of David.
  • You will sit there too as an Everlasting Father.

As a father you will raise up sons.

  • You will receive an impartation to become a spiritual father.
  • You will receive the spirit of Elijah.
  • Then you will help father the next spiritual generation.

God is making all things new.

  • This includes the family.
  • We are destined to be the beginning of a new spiritual family.
  • We are spiritual fathers of that spiritual family.
  • This is our destiny.

Fatherlessness is being removed from the ecclesia.

  • The Ecclesia is being made new.
  • We are a new first family.
  • As fathers you will each father a new spiritual generation.

Fathers beget sons who grow up to be fathers.

  • Your spiritual sons will be fathers.
  • The day will come when the Ecclesia is full of fathers and sons.

Apostolic Resource Centers (ARCs) still have a place to show the narrow path.

  • We do not see paid teaching or paying a monthly tithe to a church.
  • Fathering is the heavenly blueprint.
  • Since first writing this page this family became a House.
  • And is no longer an ARC.

The mystery of fathering and fatherlessness has been revealed.

  • The human family’s groan is the cry of hearts broken by fatherlessness.
  • This is the mystery of fatherlessness revealed.
  • Spiritual fathers answer that cry.
  • This is the mystery of fathering revealed.

Adam is spoken of as a son of God. 

  • He was created in the image of God.
  • This included sonship which includes fathering.
  • Adam fell and begat sons in his own fallen image.

“For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.”

All of creation began groaning from the moment of Adam’s fall.

  • Death began spreading through creation.
  • And fatherlessness began spreading through the human family.
  • Since then creation has been laboring in birth pains.

What is creation waiting for?

  • Creation is waiting for the Sons of God to be revealed.
  • Sons of God were first revealed in September of 2017.
  • The mystery of Sonship has been revealed.
  • The mystery of Sonship includes the mystery of Fathering.

Fathers are essential to the development of Sons.

  • Fathers beget sons.
  • There is more to fathering then begetting.

When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened.  And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”’  Luke 3:21-22

  • Father spoke Jesus into Sonship
  • This was a revelation of Jesus’ Sonship to those who had ears to hear.

“You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”

  • Father will speak you into sonship.
  • This will give you a revelation of your Sonship.
  • Father may do this personally.
  • Or He may speak to you through a spiritual father,
“I will declare the decree: The Lord has  said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.'”  Psalm 2:7
 
  • Father begat Jesus into Sonship.
  • Fathers beget Sons into Sonship.
  • This initiates a season of death, burial followed by resurrection into full Sonship.
  • Father will beget you into Sonship.
  • Your spiritual father may beget you.
  • Or father may beget you personally.
  • Either way you have been begotten by father.
‘And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!”’  Mark 9:7
 
  • This happened on the Mount of Transfiguration.
  • The Father revealed His Son.
  • When the time comes Father will reveal you as His Son.
  • Father may do this persoanlly or through a spiritual father.

Fathers beget sons.

  • The scriptures are full of genealogies of who begot who.

There is much more to fathering then begetting.

  • There is much time spent together so that the son can see what his father does.
  • And do the same.
  • At some time a Father sends his son by shooting him as an arrow.

“Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them…”  Psalm 127:4-5

  • These are just some of the aspects of fathering.

 

 

Revelation of the Mystery of Fathering and Fatherlessness

Revelation of the Mystery of Fathering and Fatherlessness

Bill Brady   Edited 11/28/2018

Fatherlessness is a qualification for becoming a spiritual father.

  • This is not just for men.
  • This is for women too.
  • Sisters, you can be spiritual fathers too.
  • Fatherlessness qualifies you just as much as it qualifies men.

The mystery of fathering is part of the mystery of sonship.

  • Sonship is one of the laws of Zion.
  • Understanding the mystery of fathering includes understanding the mystery of fatherlessness.

I first began to understand the mystery of fatherlessness when I saw it at work.

  • I saw it at work in the three generations of my family that came before me.
  • And I saw it at work in my own life.
  • I saw how Father redeemed me from fatherlessness.
  • And made me into a spiritual father.

There is fatherlessness throughout my family.

  • It is on both my father’ and mother’s sides.
  • I can trace it back four generations.
  • Many mothers raised their children without the presence of a father in the home.
  • Mothers coped with a husband who was unable to fully function as a father.
  • Fatherlessness was passed down to both my father and my mother.
  • Then it was passed down to me.

My parents did the best that they could to raise their two children.

  • There was lots of love.
  • There was always food and good family activities.
  • One day my father apologized to me in tears.
  • He said that he had not been the father to me that he had wanted to be.
  • I was embarrassed.
  • I was a young adolescent and had never seen my father cry before.
  • I didn’t know what to think or feel.

Years later one ministering emotional healing to me asked, 

  • “Have you ever seen your father cry?”
  • Holy Spirit knows us and can heal us.
  • He heals us from the ache of fatherlessness.

There was lots of love in my family.

  • However, no one ever said, “I love you”.
  • Until I moved back home as an adult.
  • I had been baptized in the Holy Spirit.
  • I began saying “I love you” to Mom and Dad.
  • Over the years we said, “I love you” to each other many times.

 I come from a family of men and women effected by fatherlessness.

  • I come from a family full of love.
  • We are a family of men who did the best that they could to be fathers.
  • Who loved their families as much as they knew how.
  • I come from a family of strong women.
  • Many were forced to function as both mothers and fathers.
  • Who loved their families and did the best that they could.

Now in my 60’s, Abba Father has finally put the whole picture together for me.

  • I have seen the mystery of fatherlessness at work in my family.
  • I now see both the fatherlessness and the love.
  • I see that my parents both did the best that they could.
  • I was and am loved.

After being born again I was gathered into a local church. 

  • There an elder took me under his wing and became a father to me.
  • He reparented me, filling in many gaps.
  • He gave me self-confidence.
  • He worked himself out of every job that he held in the church.
  • He gave them to me one by one until I too was an elder.

Later, I moved on and was baptized in the Holy Spirit.

  • I was hired as an assistant pastor by a pastor who also fathered me.
  • I came to him still broken.
  • He told me later that he almost let me go.
  • When I visited my parents I came back under the influence of the family familiar spirits.
  • When I returned from time off I was useless for ministry for several weeks.

Soon after I was baptized in the Holy Spirit I had a dream.

  • In the dream, I was walking up a creek bed filled with stones.
  • I was finding gold amongst the stones.
  • Next scene I was speaking words.
  • Next scene I discovered that the same words were spoken by Elijah.

I have carried the spirit of Elijah for many years in preparation for this day.

  • John the Baptist, who also carried that same spirit, is one of my men in white linen.
  • Father Abraham is another of my men in white linen.

The spirit of Elijah: 

“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” 

What is the spirit of Elijah? 

  • Elijah the Prophet fathered Elisha into the office of the prophet as his replacement.
  • Elisha saw Elijah taken up to heaven in a fiery chariot.
  • He cried out, “My Father, My Father!  The chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof!”
  • Elijah was Elisha’s spiritual father.

I carry the spirit of Elijah.

  • It turns the hearts of the fathers to the children.
  • It has turned my heart to be inclined to my spiritual children.
  • In doing so, it has made me into a spiritual father.
  • Father imparts fathering to us by imparting the spirit of Elijah to us.

What is a mother’s role? 

  • She loves and nurtures her children.
  • She teaches them right from wrong.
  • This is the simplified version as all moms well know.

What is a father’s role?

  • He models for his sons how to be a man and father.
  • He models for his daughters what to look for in a husband.
  • And what to look for in a man who will be ther father of her children.
  • This is also the simplified version.

Young men and women who have been fathered are different.

  •  A young man who has been fathered properly will respect women.
  • A young woman who has been fathered properly will respect herself.
  • And wait to find a fully fathered young man to marry.
  • No condemnation to any of us.
  • Few in these days have been fully fathered.

Along the way, a father imparts destiny to both his sons and daughters. 

  • Joseph did this for his step son, Jesus.
  • As a result, Jesus went into His step father’s family business.
  • He was a fine carpenter in his step-father’s business.
  • When it was time He then went into His Heavenly Father’s business.

This is the way that it is designed to be.

  • Our fathers impart destiny into us.
  • Without this we will not mature fully as a man or woman.
  • We will not fully move into our destiny.
  • We will not be able to be all that we are meant to be as fathers and mothers.
  • A young man or woman who has not been fully fathered will pass along their incompleteness to their children.
  • Fatherlessness is passed on from generation to generation.

The big picture of fathering and fatherlessness.

  • So, now you have the answer to what’s wrong with the world.
  • What we see is many broken and incomplete men and women.
  • All are doing the best that they can.
  • Few are fully linked to the next generation.
  • Fatherlessness is passed down from generation to generation.
  • None of us are whole.
  • This has been happening since the fall.

It will continue to happen in each family until the broken chain is restored.

  • By a spiritual father.
  • Empowered with the spirit of Elijah.

The broken chain is being put back together in our time. 

  • The first whole links have been made by the spirit of Elijah.
  • Those links that have been made whole are spiritual fathers.
  • There are many such men and women in this day.
  • They are being raised up to be spiritual fathers.
  • The next spiritual generation will be healed and whole.

Each of us is called to be a spiritual father at some level.

  • Each of us will come from a family generational back ground of fatherlessness.
  • Each will have been restored by Abba, their loving heavenly father.

Your family is not that different from mine.

  • Familiar spirits that brought affliction to your generations were meant by the accuser for evil.
  • But all was meant by God for a positive blueprint of family destiny.

Look carefully at Abraham’s family.

  • In a sense, they are the First Family for all of us.
  • This is because Abraham is our father.
  • They are the first family, the first dysfunctional family and the first soap opera.

The result is God’s grace on display.

  • From this background God raised Joseph up to rule over Egypt.
  • And save Egypt and his family from famine.

We are Josephs. 

  • We are the ones destined to rule.
  • We are manifest sons.
  • Manifest sons will be sent out to father their own sons into manifest sonship.
  • We are the generation that has been awaited since Adam’s fall.

The generations just before yours were devastated.

  • This was Pharaoh trying to kill Moses.
  • This was Herod trying to kill Jesus.
  • You arrived at this time in brokenness.
  • As part of a broken family.
  • The one who came to steal, kill and destroy did his best and failed.

You and I are here. 

  • The One who came to give you abundant life took over from there.
  • He is the one who calls you to spiritual fathering.

We are those least likely to be a good parent.

  • But we are those most likely to be a spiritual father.
  • Our human inability qualifies us.
  • His ability empowers us.
  • The greater the devastation; the greater the empowerment.

This was true of Abraham. 

  • God called him a father of many nations when he was not a father of anyone.
  • From there things got worse.
  • Year after year went by until Abraham’s wife was way too old to have a baby.
  • And Abraham himself was too old.
  • In this place of inability God gave a child through resurrection.
  • Then God called Abraham to sacrifice that child, his only child, now grown to be a man.
  • Again, resurrection!
  • Abraham received Isaac back from the brink of death.

Resurrection will do the same in your life.

  • If God has called you to be a spiritual father, then believe for it.
  • And it will happen.

God’s mysteries are hidden in plain sight in the scriptures.

  • You have now seen the mystery of fatherlessness.
  • And the mystery of fathering.

How to determine what ages you are in.

How to determine what ages you are in.

Bill Brady   Updated 11/29/2018

You likely operate out of more than one age. 

  • Entering a city to explore or as discovery is not the same a Triumphal Entry of a City.
  • A Triumphal Entry into a city attracts a crowd that cheers you on and is followed by a crowning and seating on a throne.

Go to the bottom and read up the list.

 

Triumphal Entry into City Everlasting (?)

Age of Zion (Ruling From Zion)

Triumphal Entry into Zion, crowning ceremony and beginning of  Manifest Sonship which is third and final stage of Sonship.)

Separation from self.

Enter Into Eternity past the flaming sword.  Followed by creation of cities in Infinity and ruling in eternity on descending bench of 2 with Jesus.  Second Stage of Sonship.

Separation from self-government.

Triumphal Entry into New Jerusalem followed by becoming descending Jerusalem.  Beginning of Sonship.

Age of New Beginnings

Welcomed by Father to sit down on throne on top of Mount Zion.

Age of Rest (Come to Rest from Dead Works – Separation from self-works.)

Age of Peace (Working the time line.  Begin to experience Metatron’s Cube.)

Age of Melchizedek (Operating in Four Faces of God)

Ecclesia Age (First participation on benches)

Seated as a king on king thrones.

Kingdom Age (Seated as lord on lord thrones)

Church Age (Born Again)

Age of Enlightenment (Aware of God.  Not yet born again.)

Where Do You Experience Ruling From?

Where Do You Experience Ruling From?

Bill Brady   Updated 11/29/2018

Where Do You Experience Ruling From?

  • What does that place look like?
  • Where is it?
  • Is it in a heavenly city?
  • Is it on a mountain?
  • Is it in a throne room?
  • Did you experience Father inviting you to sit down on that throne?

How do you experience ruling?

  • Is Father beside you?
  • Are you experiencing descending to rule?
  • Are you pouring forth onto the earth?

Have you experienced other places to rule from besides this one?

  • Where were those places of ruling?
  • What was that experience of ruling like?

Questions help you to know where you are in the progression to Manifest Sonship.  The Blueprint For Manifest Sonship

Here are the thrones in their order of progression.

  1. Lord thrones from which you rule for areas of your personal life.
  2. King thrones from which you rule for areas of broader responsibility.
  3. The throne on top of and in Mount Zion.
  4. The throne in New Jerusalem.
  5. The seats on the benches in Eternity.  (Bench of 3 with Godhead making a window.  Bench of 1 with all of Heaven.)
  6. The throne in the City of Zion.  ( We currently see that this is in the is to come. )
  7. Ruling in City Everlasting in eternity

If Father invited you to sit on this throne, then you are either

  • On the throne on top of Mount Zion in age of peace/rest.
  • Here you first learn to rule with things like a scepter, breathing etc.

If you are experiencing descending to rule, then you are either

  • in New Jerusalem or
  • in eternity on the bench of one governing

If you are creating cities then you are in New Jerusalem or higher.

If you are creating cities in infinity then rule as a bench of 2 in City of Zion. 

In eternity

In infinity

  • We experience descending to rule with Jesus on the bench of two over cities.

Here are some resources that to help you see what ruling is like on various thrones.

What does it take for me to be a manifest son?

What does it take for me to be a manifest son?

Bill Brady   Updated 11/29/2018

A dear sister asked this question of me today.

  • I told her that she had asked a really good question.
  • When you ask Jesus a question He will answer you.
  • When you ask a really good question then you get a really good answer.

“Ask, and it will be given to you;  seek, and you will find;  knock, and it will be opened to you.” 

Jesus is still making disciples.

  • He is still answering questions.
  • He may answer you directly.
  • Or He may answer you through another member of His Ecclesia.
  • He will answer.

Here is the short answer to her question:

Continue to ask questions.

 

How can we be Awakening Our DNA and be Perfect in Eternity?

Written by Ella Harrison

TWO NOWS (IS).

We know from scripture and personal encounters there is eternity (the was), current now and the is to come.

We are seeing we have two nows so this could this explain why we are perfect in one eternity now and DNA awakening in old earth now? Two parallel truths running side by side.

Awakening may feel like transforming but we have always had the ability if we choose to reside in the eternity now. Our DNA is the same, (as a small tree has the same DNA as a large tree – it is just receiving a new input).

WE ARE NOT WAITING ON GOD TO DO SOMETHING.

Any blockage is our own and evidence of personal government.

The now we have in God (ETERNITY NOW) corresponds to our design and therefore to truth, the other now (TODAY’S REALITY ) is ‘outside’ or beyond boundaries of design and only exists because of the image deposited in the realm of truth, but is a fact and not a truth.

The realm of truth is superior to the one of experience based on facts….where the second is a deception based on man’s personal perception and observation of law of cause and effect.

We basically translate from the realm of deception to the one of truth that changes us from incoherence/desegregation/dust, to coherence/cohesiveness/solid substance.

I see only the mind shifts while the dna in terms of heritage stays the same and what changes is the way to use it that unlocks the full potential.

OUR CHOICE

WE CAN CHOOSE TO LIVE OUT OF THE NOW IN ETERNITY BREATHING IN FROM THE RIVER AND DRAWING ON THE SUPPLY WHICH IN TURN TRANSFORMS THE EARTH NOW WITHOUT LIVING IN THE EARTH NOW.

I would say Our body and soul and spirit are aligned in Eternity now but our memory may not feel that.
