In this series, we will tackle the concept of our submission to our Creator. Are we totally surrendered to Him, or do we hold back certain areas of our life from Him? Is the reality that we're only partially surrendered to Him, yet claim to serve Him? In the first part of this series, we look at how the hand is used thematically in Hebraic thought. What does it mean to give one's hand unto someone or something? What does the ceremony of putting one's hand under the thigh truly signify and mean? What does it mean to sin with a high hand, and how is this linked to being stiff-necked and hard-hearted? How does this relate to pride and being haughty? What Hebrew word plays are occurring in the Hebrew language in linking a high hand with being deceitful? How does this relate to what we put our hand to do? And how does all of this relate to authority and our (quite often partial) submission to our King?
In this follow-on teaching from "The Spirit Man" teaching, we look at some of the more practical aspects regarding the dynamics of the written Word being written on our hearts and thus becoming living, that we may walk in the Spirit. What does Scripture say regarding the Word becoming living in our lives? What are the dangers of staying in a gnostic/knowledge space and remaining in the flesh, and how does "religion" keep us in the flesh? What is the process of the written Word becoming living in our lives and what is the resulting fruit? What are the fruits of remaining in the flesh and preventing the Word from becoming living in our lives, and how does idolatry factor into this? And how does all of this relate to the righteousness of Messiah and its growth in our lives?
We tend to think of Joab as one of king David's mighty and brave loyal men, but is there more to Joab's that we have missed? What and who is Joab a type and shadow of? What are the consequences and fallout of being a schemer, a usurper and one who take smatters into their own hands? What are the drivers for our good deeds towards those close to us, and even servant leadership? What are the consequences of wanting the favour of men over that of Elohim's?
What is the make-up of man? What is the difference between the soul and the spirit of man? Why is understanding the make-up of man important regarding our faith and walking out our lives while still in the fallen state? How does this subject relate to our sanctification? Where does the war between flesh and spirit occur? What does it mean to walk in the spirit? What does it mean to pray in the spirit? Has our lack of understanding this topic been detrimental to our walk and prayers, and has it even robbed us of intimacy with our King?
What did Yeshua truly mean when He asked if He would find the belief on the earth upon His return? How are belief and sovereignty intertwined with miracles? Why did Yeshua go out of His way to give faith in the resurrection? Why is religion detrimental to the faith? What are the dangers and results of unbelief? And how does this all relate to us today and the great falling away?
