New Beginning Conference
The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.
The genealogy of Christ was activated by those who walked on the faith lane. Matt 1:17 illustrates the pattern of God in activating the pedigree of Christ. The first person to establish the faith lane consistently was David. Faith is the lifestyle that establishes Christ in every sector / nation of the earth.
David did not just walk by faith but he also reigned. On the faith lane, things can either happen by faith (instantaneously) or through faith (process). God trained David and this took a process in time. Understand therefore that the delay you may be experiencing is an opportunity in God to go through your process of training. David was anointed for the throne but he did not get appointed immediately, it took time and seasons before he was enthroned.
In the midst of the process in training, do not doubt the anointing, rather embrace it and stay focused, maintaining the momentum of your faith. David never focused on Saul as his problem or opposition to the throne.
Challenges come to test and proof your faith. Let praise not depart from your heart, stay alive and energised in His presence.
Abraham is the Father of faith. Everything you do must be established on the faith lane. The faith lane is what gets you out of your father’s house / Nation i.e. familiar territory into God’s promise land (purpose).
The heart of David
Unless you are schooled in the mindset of David, your spiritual warfare would remain selfish and tainted in evil. The faith walk is a love-walk. Christ is multidimensional; you cannot arrive at Christ without having passed through similar life patterns of Abraham and David.
With the responsibility of the promised land comes responsible-grace. The grace message is not an opportunity for misbehaving in the promised land. This behaviour leads to “Babylon”. Babylon produces confusion / a carrying away / trap; in our modern times this could be the trap of social media.
Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God to fulfil the Abrahamic covenant and develop a heart like David. Then God can trust you enough to empower you and fill you with wisdom.
The Making of Christ
Luke 1:36-37 When God wants to do something significant, in one’s life, HE starts with the ministry of the Spirit at the level of obscurity (the unknown / least obvious one – the virgin Mary). 2 important things to note:
- The ministry of the Spirit – the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and she received power to conceive.
- Covenant relationships – she received wisdom to visit Elizabeth and fellowship with her in that season. In Christ, whenever there is a mention, pay close attention. Mary received the news and took action immediately, to visit her cousin Elizabeth.
At the level of Christ, nothing is impossible! Christ is the solid rock, once you stand on this rock, all things respond to you. Desire to be as Christ, walk on the faith lane.
