Sonship

Apostolic Summit 2019 – Session 2

Apostolic Summit 2019 – Session 2
Session 2 of the 2019 Australian Apostolic Summit, in Rockhampton Australia. What does it mean to be a real son? David Alley talks about being not a biological son, but a real son from the heart. What are some aspects of this real sonship, and why it is available to anyone.

The Truth about Ruth

There is so much good that God is wanting to do for us, and it is just waiting for us to be in the right place. To be more specific, God is waiting for our heart to be in the right place. The story of Ruth is a great illustration of this, and this message by David Alley will open your eyes to see just how much will start to move when we follow the example of Ruth. Sadly many Christians are focused on "what is in it for me" - and they often tend to have the wrong focus…

Pursue. It’s Up to You

Pursue. It’s Up to You
Jonathan Maxwell delivers a great message, challenging the natural tendency of the human race to focus on self as opposed to the values of sonship that we need to embrace. Jonathan begins with his testimony of moving to Rockhampton to work with his uncle John Alley and the changes and challenges that this wrought in his life. We must listen, says Jonathan, to the right Father – to the Father of light, and not the father of lies.

The Need For Change

The Need For Change
David Alley provides an introductory message with an emphasis on paying attention to detail. In grammar we speak of a sentence having a subject, an object and a verb.

One Father, Two Sons, Three Choices

One Father, Two Sons, Three Choices
In Luke 15, says Philip Alley, there are three parables. All along a similar theme of something (or someone) being lost and then the great joy when found. God is very happy when that which was lost is found – he seeks the restoration of sinners constantly. Philip goes on to examine in more detail the parable of the lost, or prodigal, son. He draws the comparison between the characteristics of the lost son and of the older son, before going on to describe the orphan heart and the steps that lead to this condition. In closing, Philip states that…

A Heart for Your Father

A Heart for Your Father
John Alley shares about coming to a place in your relationship with your spiritual father that involves the heart. Elisha commenced serving Elijah out of commitment to an idea, and then commitment to the person, but finally his heart belonged to Elijah. As Elijah was taken, his cry of "my father" showed there was a longing and desire. This longing and desire makes all the difference in spiritual relationships.
