God has a system in place where He expects us to mature and work that system.

Many today are finding that asking their heavenly Father to do things isn’t working like it used to do

  • They’re taking it as defeat
  • They’re taking it as rejection
  • They’re forming personal doctrines causing doubt and unbelief

Many question the machine when they need to question the operator of the machine

The 3 stages of Christian life:

  1. Baby stage that will consist of two dynamics
  2. The learning years
  3. The adult or mature years

We can look at it like different planets:

  1. Planet Baby
    1. I cry and get what I want
    2. Someone else takes care of me
      1. The Children of Israel wanted to stay in this life in Egypt
  2. Planet Growth
    1. I’m learning repercussions
    2. I’m challenging the authority rules
      1. Still, everything I need is provided
  3. Planet Adult
    1. The laws here are hard
      1. If I don’t work, I don’t eat
      2. Throwing a fit gets me thrown out of places
    2. When I break the laws I lose freedom
    3. When I use good actions I get good things

1 Corinthians 13:11 AMP When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and (I) have put them aside

When a child comes up against something that’s heavy that needs to be moved he calls his parents to move it

  • What would happen if that child is grown to an adult and needed that same something moved and he called his parents to move it?

Here are some auto scriptures:

God has given us authority on this earth

  • Matthew 18:18-19 NAS 18 "Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. 19 "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 7:21-23 NAS 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. (Many use their spiritual gifts to enter and they don’t work) 22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'  23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS (they had a lawless area that needed to be fixed to enter in).

  • Matthew 7:23 AMP you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]

Matthew 8:2-3 NAS 2 And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean." 3 Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

  • Two questions: 1. Was Jesus willing to heal? 2. Did He like this guy more than you?


Much of the purpose of the church in the last days is to re-take dominion

This won’t happen until we realize this third stage and continue to press into what isn’t working at first

Many are expected to be adults but still think as a child

  • Because of this they misinterpret how God does things

Hebrews 5:11-14 AMP 11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight]. 12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God's Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. 13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]! 14 But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law. 






God’s ways are foolish to the immature. 

1 Corinthians 2:9-3:3 NKJV 9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." 

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For "who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ. 

3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?


God has put a system into place

We need to use the laws of that system

When God sets a law is it movable?

Different kinds of upbringing 




Do the laws of God move like our parents lack of consequences system?


Whatever planet you were raised on we must acclimate to our new Heavenly Father's planet's laws

Laws don't change


Gifts will be active

Callings and anointings will operate

But nothing will sustain except operating in the laws. 

Many in prison are gifted and called but inoperative because they didn't operate inside of the law


If you open to darkness you will need ruled by darkness.

God has no legal authority to override your will. 

Don't look at family patterns, past failure, the appearance that you got by with something.
