Straight Talk, God’s Glory Is Limitless… Rodna Epley

Rodna LightEverything in the imagination becomes possible in Christ as our minds are being transformed into His glorious image. It means learning to access the new nature as we put to death the old nature in Christ. This activates the glory of the Father on us and makes us the light of the world where we can turn all darkness into light by simply walking into a room.

As an apprentice of glory, He will teach us all kinds of really cool science experiments to do on earth. Jesus walked on water, turned water to wine and raised the dead. He defied the physical created laws of the universe because He operated out of the Father’s glory which has no boundaries or limitations. You could say God operates in the realm of imaginary numbers. If you can imagine it and believe it, then you can do it.

Jesus brought the Kingdom of Heaven to earth, which brought the glory of the Father to earth, and that was the difference between Jesus and us. The really cool thing is (and the part that everyone misses) is that Jesus gave us very same glory the Father gave Him before the world was (John 17:5,22,23).

The glory of the Father is the key ingredient to us doing all the works Jesus did…and greater works. This is eating at the Father’s table (John 4:31-34). The reason we don’t see many, if any, doing these works is because through man’s watered-down protein shakes and meal replacements the glory of the Father went to sleep. We became blind to the knowledge of His glory (2 Corinthians 4:4). But in Christ, the Father’s glory wakes up and gives sight to the blind, and raises the dead.

So, time to wake up His glory (Psalm 57:8) since it is the very image we are being transformed into (2 Corinthians 3:18). God is awakening our imaginations as a child’s, just as we awaken His glory which permeates Scripture from the first page to the last.

“This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)

If you read this to the end…to you it has been given (Matthew 13:11, Mark 4:11, Luke 8:10)

Straight Talk, Directions and Instructions to the Father’s Glory Kitchen… Rodna Epley

Posted in Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , on November 1, 2018 by paulthepoke

Directions and Instructions to the Father’s Glory Kitchen:

Rodna Light

  1. Download the GPS app which is Jesus – the Way.
  2. Put on the proper clothing on, the wedding garment, which is Christ in you and you in Christ, a covenant relationship and a two-way street. This is a commitment to Him forever and is the activated state of God’s glory where you are the light of the world and all things literally become possible to you.
  3. Come through the Door, which is also Christ, but avoid the temptation of propping up against the beautiful Door (or the Gate called Beautiful) as a lame man begging for change, or just being satisfied with being “saved”, because you can’t taste the food from the Door. You can only smell it wafting your way from the Kitchen. Walk inside and take a seat at the Table!
  4. The Usher, the Holy Spirit, will navigate you to the Glory Dining Room and show you what to do. In fact, He will be with you through the whole process. He’s your access to the entire operating system of the Father’s glory which can only be obtained in Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:14). You will find your name already on the Table with your plate waiting to be filled by you.
  5. It’s also an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet. The food is already hot n ready and on the table so be sure to pile your plate up high and ask for a doggie bag to take home for others! Father is really generous! The Buffet is so delectable that this world cannot imagine the deliciousness of it all. Papa is a meat and potatoes kind of Man. He also likes to fish and grill out sometimes. He is also the true Master Chef (Gordon Ramsey can’t compare) of whatever your taste palate becomes set for, but if you like only Veggies – He has those too. Ever heard of the Tree of Life? (Proverbs 3:13-18). You could also live on the Bread and Wine alone (John 6:53-58) so try to remember…there is much more on the menu. But you won’t find protein powder in the Glory Kitchen.
  6. If you need help deciding, there’s a menu in the form of Word tablet floating in the air in front of you so just scroll down or up through the promises of God and tap on the ones you want then the food miraculously appears in front of you. Anything He’s ever promised anyone in the Bible is available to you off the menu. If you don’t see something on table you want then scroll to one of these menu items and tap it. It’s a blank check for kingdom children who are learning to operate in the Father’s glory. (Matthew 18:19; 21:22; Mark 11:24; John 14:13; 15:7; 15:16; 16:23–24; James 1:5-6, 1:17; 1 John 3:22, 5:14)
  7. After dinner, Father will teach you how to cook and serve from His own kitchen so you can be a master chef too. This is anything you want to do in life, Him working with you, tag-teaming with the Holy Spirit.

Rodna LightNow imagine for a minute if any of us in the church could only do the first part of what Jesus said in John 14:12 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.

Just think of anything Jesus ever did. And that’s what He said we would do. After grasping that, we could move onto better understanding the greater works which should sufficiently blow your imagination wide open if you consider the menu list of the former. While I could have made a separate menu for the greater works, for this example I simply added it as the last item on the menu. I wanted to focus on the easier stuff first, like raising the dead and walking on water.

Remember, items on this Menu are all things that you will be able to do. Doing is eating in the Father’s House at the Father’s table. Pick out your favorite choices so the servers in heaven can have them on the table for you when you sit. Doggie bags are available so you can take food home for others who have nothing prepared.

Nehemiah 8:10 Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Straight Talk, A Diet of Works… Rodna Epley

Posted in Rodna Epley with tags , , , , on October 17, 2018 by paulthepoke

Rodna LightJohn 4:32-34 But He said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work…”

Now let me tell ya about the food! You will forget protein shakes ever existed once you taste the food! Food in the kingdom of heaven is a full course meal where the kitchen is always open 24/7 for anyone who is hungry and knows how to GPS the location. FYI: the GPS location is very similar to the wedding garment because once you put it on…you’re there.

The Father’s kitchen has a name too. Well it does now that I named it. It’s called the “Glory Kitchen”. The food in the Glory Kitchen has already been paid for by the King (Jesus) and it’s anything you want.

Food in the Glory Kitchen is doing the Father’s works. Don’t slap the menu away just yet. That may not sound tasty to you until you hear what those “works” are. Jesus showed us what they are when He was on earth.

John 14:12-13 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 

 

 

Straight Talk, Tag You’re It!!! Featuring Rodna Epley

Posted in Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , on October 10, 2018 by paulthepoke

Rodna LightThe Kingdom of Heaven is a Family first, and then a Family Glory Business with an open-door policy allowing anyone in who agrees to put on proper shoes (Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive you your sins.) and shirt (Matthew 22:11-12 But when the king came in to see the wedding guests, he saw a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. And he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ But he had nothing to say.) to come and dine at the Father’s table where there is much laughter, joy, peace, healing, and life.

The world might call it: No Shoes, No Shirt – No Service

But our Father in heaven calls it: Here’s some clothes kids. Come on in. Dinner’s ready and I love you!

As we enter, we are assigned a private Tutor (the Holy Spirit again) who will show us the ropes. We get to pick what we want to do in the Family Glory Business. The Holy Spirit works with us in a type of tag-team intimate relationship where He assigns us a realm or a sandbox to play in. He gives us the Father’s tools that Jesus used. The Spirit teaches us how to use them in the world to help others, flipping all darkness into light, just like Jesus.

tag

Either one of us can tag first. We can start or we can let Him start, depending upon our level of confidence. We build what we can. When we don’t know what to do, we say, “Tag, you’re it Holy Spirit.” So, He takes a turn building. When He’s done, He says, “Tag, you’re it _______”.

We go back and forth with Him until our individual assignment in the Family is revealed and we know how to do things. If we make a mistake it is okay. We can just tear down that side of the sand castle and build it up stronger. Or crash the whole thing and start over.

Ephesians 1:13-14 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

 

 

Straight Talk… Kingdom Dining Hall, Featuring Rodna Epley

Posted in Rodna Epley, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 2, 2018 by paulthepoke

Rodna LightThis morning I had a vision from the Lord: I saw a measuring scoop of protein powder. All of this came from that…

God doesn’t give out meal replacements, so there are no protein shakes in heaven. While the shaker cup, wire whisk, and protein powder may sound like a good idea on earth, in truth it only measures up to a watered-down version of a real meal in Heaven. Now I’m a fan of protein shakes so I can say this. Even when milk is used instead of water, the meal replacement will never taste like Filet Mignon. Neither will man’s religion ever come anywhere near tasting like real Food on the Father’s Table. white powder of whey protein

First, let me tell you a little about His Kingdom where The Father’s Presence (His glory) saturates and lights up the atmosphere through Christ with eternal power where all things are truly possible to anyone entering in… and then I want to tell you about the food!

Heaven Banquet

Most of us who are believers are just sitting barely inside the door to the kingdom. We are saved. We didn’t realize that we stopped just inside the door. No one told us that our Father has prepared an amazing never-ending meal that we can enjoy now. They did tell us we can enjoy it after we die. But Scripture tells us we can enjoy it now. We have an Usher (the Holy Spirit) who can show us the way to the table. He is much more than an Usher, but we don’t know how to receive Him, or work with Him, or hear His voice. God isn’t condemning us. He’s just saying we need to start learning. After 2,000 years it’s time to come up higher, for all of us. Our Father wants us to go “in and out”, to find our room in the mansion, be with Jesus where He is and learn to see through His eyes of glory.

John 17:24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

 

He wants us to come in and dine with Him at His table.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

John 14:23 Jesus answered him, if anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.

Come to Jesus. It will result in answered prayer, fulfilled dreams, and flipping all darkness into light… now on earth.

Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 9:35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.

Acts 10:38 …how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

 

Straight Talk… The Trinity, Baptism and Resurrection, Featuring Rodna Epley

Posted in Gospel, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2018 by paulthepoke

Rodna LightIn Matthew’s telling of Jesus’ baptism something amazing happened when Jesus was submerged into the water. Scripture tells that He “came up immediately from the water” as if what they saw was miraculous. It should have taken the normal time to come up after being dunked with the baptizer helping, but in Jesus’ case something supernatural raised Him up, making people take note of it and make record of it. It wasn’t normal. In fact, the heavens opened at the same time, the Spirit of God descended in the form of a dove and the voice of the Father spoke. Have you ever been curious as to what raised Jesus up out of the water so quickly that people wanted to record it? Scripture tells us. Here’s the story as recorded in Matthew 3:13-17

JesusBaptism

Matthew 3:13-14 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?”

Matthew 3:15 But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him.

Matthew 3:16-17 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

The baptism was more than symbolic of His death because everything Jesus did was prophetic. In fact, the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit the Prophecy.

Revelation 19:10 Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

His baptism was not only a “fulfillment of all righteousness” but it set the prophetic timer on His own death and resurrection. His own words were to later set the alarm clock to be raised from the dead 3 days after He was crucified when He declared…

John 2:19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

resurrection-2

But, at His baptism in the Jordan River, 3 years prior to His death, the One’s who were present at His baptism were the same One’s present at Jesus’ death and resurrection. 

Scripture tells us who and what that was…

  1. The glory of the Father raised Jesus from the dead. “Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)
  2. The Spirit of God raised Jesus from the dead. “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. (Romans 8:11)
  3. The Power of God raised Jesus from the dead. “I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 1:19-20)
  4. Jesus’ own prophetic words raised Jesus from the dead. “Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19) and “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.” (John 10:17-18)

So that which raised Christ from the dead is that which raised Him up out of the water: The glory of the Father, the Spirit of God, the Power of God, and Jesus’ own prophetic words. In the case of His baptism, those words were most likely “Let it be so for now, for it is proper for us to fulfill all righteousness.”

But don’t miss the fact that the baptism and death and resurrection were all initiated by the Father of glory. Through Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, we as Sons of the Kingdom are restored to our Father and restored to His glory.

I just think it’s so interesting how all of the Trinity was present and participated at both events, and that the Father bestowed all glory and honor upon His Son. It’s also extremely important to understand and know that Jesus gave us the same glory the Father gave Him before the world was so that we could all become one as the Bride of Christ (John 17:5,22,23) following in His pattern. Just wow! Consider the implications of all that…

God is a Genius isn’t He?! Have a blessed day saints! ❤
