Where there is an atmosphere charged with preaching, prophesying and prayer that is the fruit of the prophetic word there can come a quantum leap from the mundane to the miraculous, and from ritual to revival….
The prophetic word creates the atmosphere for glory….
Lost In Translation
Romans 8: 15
15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” (NKJV)
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! Father! (AMP)
Galatians 4: 6
6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” (NKJV)
6 And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba! Father! (AMP)
6 And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” (NLT)
“Lost in translation” literally means a word or phrase which, when translated from one language to another, loses so much of its nuance and/or connotation that its meaning, or the full sense of its meaning, is no longer discernible in the translated form. Figuratively, “lost in translation” refers to a word or phrase, or sometimes even a noun or an action, which, when removed from its original context, can no longer be (fully) understood. This figurative sense is often applied to cultural or sub-cultural artefacts, such as colloquialisms, gestures, fashions and the like.
If the meaning of a word can be lost in translation then a word left untranslated and introduced into another language can cause even more confusion. For whatever reason the translators chose to leave the Aramaic word for “Daddy” untranslated, and thereby left us with a seriously diminished understanding of the level of intimacy we can now have with Almighty God (who is our heavenly Father).

Deliverance from the penalty for sin is grace, deliverance from the power of sin is glory….
The LORD God gives grace and glory….
Sometimes the hardest thing for a Christian to accept is that there is nothing left for them to do but to simply believe that everything necessary for them to live holy, blameless, and completely without fault in God’s presence has already been done….
Christ in us is the hope of glory….
Led by the Holy Spirit
23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
Isaiah 9: 6 – 7
6 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. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end
We have seen previously that if we are going to experience REAL LIFE as God intends – where the government of Jesus Christ exposes and displaces the powers of darkness – then we must be born of the Holy Spirit, filled with the Holy Spirit, and baptised in the Holy Spirit!
When we are born from above God breathes the spirit of life into us and we are recreated as he originally intended. God sowed his Son into the world in order to reap a harvest of many sons.
No worries….Psalm 91 has everything covered….
All ministry should arise out of identity….doing out of who we be….
