Regrann from @pastornuel - #arisewithpastornuel (excerpts)
Kingdom Focus Week, Day 4: Are You A Son Of Peace 2
I often feel like you can group every one in God's kingdom or in a local assembly into about five categories based on their mindset and approach to the work of ministry.
SONS: Sons are differentiated by faithfulness and by a sense of ownership of the assignment. Sons see the kingdom and the local assembly as theirs and function from that perspective. Jesus said that it is the Father's good pleasure to give us the kingdom not just to have us work in the kingdom. He wants sons and not just servants.
SERVANTS: Like sons, servants are faithful, but unlike sons, there is no sense of ownership. They do not OWN the assignment or work.
The bible talks about Moses as a servant and Jesus as the Son. Hebrews 3:5,6.
SETTLERS: Settlers as the name implies, simply ARE THERE! There is no sense of responsibility or assignment. They are either oblivious to, or unconcerned about the kingdom work or the mandate of the local assembly they belong to. This is sadly where most Christians are.
SIGHTSEERS: These ones go from one happening church to the other, from one miracle crusade to the other. Their interest is simply to go see where it is happening but never to make something happen! .
SCHEMERS: The schemers are looking for what they can get. Every message is a SCHEME for something - Grace is a how-to-get-by-with-sin-in-your-life scheme, giving is a how-to-get-rich-quick scheme. The schemers will rather hear a message on how to increase your income than on how to expand the kingdom! .
If you are born again, YOU ARE A SON! Think like one and act like one! .
2 Timothy 2:20 (CWSB)
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.

incase you missed it, here’s a little bit of my sydney/byron aftermovie 🌙✨💫
“there are too many moments in life, where we just get so caught up in a false sense of reality of what we should be doing with our time here on earth, because it’s the way everybody is spending their time.. and during this unconscious, autopilot lifestyle that we’re all so hypnotised by.. we’re simply forgetting the real meaning, of how to actually live.” - me hehe
The day has started with grey colors... today is not a good day...I’m feeling sadness and disappointment... let me tell you my friend, you’re not alone in this battle. If some one is asking you if you’re ok, please, please!!! Be honest!!! Tell them how do you really feel, what’s going on! Don’t be embarrassed, don’t feel inferior, please, don’t block those emotions inside of you! I know, I know... you being tell to not talk about sadness, to show how amazing is your life all the time, because that is how to be a successful person... but, that is a lie! We, you are, completely allowed to not be happy today, and that’s natural and ok!!! Tomorrow....is gonna be a different day! I’m you and you’re me. ❣️
What is happening right now to dogs in Yulin is HORRENDOUS... but abuse is abuse and it is happening everywhere else (including the U.K.) to thousands of innocent animals that are seen by society as ‘food’. A dog is a pig is a chicken is a cow. They all think, feel, love and all have the ability to feel pain and suffer.
. . .
Please use your anger at Yulin to ignite a compassion for ALL animals and go vegan 🌱
Little Wanderers rescued nine kittens and one mom yesterday. We get slammed with requests and are really trying our best to meet an enormous need. Here’s how our weekend started. Fondly named Devin, this baby boy was scooped from a yard in Flushing Queens. He’s weak, thin, has a horrible upper respiratory infection and baldly infected eyes. This morning he’s going to the Vetrinarian. But while we were in the process of rescuing Devin’s brother (who was in worse condition and cannot even open his eyes at all) the property owners started yelling to not “take their kittens” as did several other neighbors. We calmly explained how rescue works, what TNR is, but they were having none of it. This is a good example of a family who believes they are helping the cats by feeding them but doing nothing else. The lack of education about TNR and rescue leaves young kittens defenseless and breeding out of control so endless litters die in shameful conditions because of ignorance, and even sometimes, willful neglect. On just this block we counted 13 cats needing TNR. Many neighbors explained that this family keeps feeding but refuses to practice TNR or let a group like ours provide critical services and education. (They placed lawn chairs on their property to watch our every move and threatened to call the police for harassment. Really guys?). Humane education is key. Rest assured we will go back for Devin’s brother and bring literature and information about TNR and rescue. The only way that this kitten will not die, or lose his eye sight, is if these people allow access and rescue. Community cats make their homes near food and a shelter source. And that’s about all these poor cats found. Support our work. Make your brunch omelette at home and toast your mimosas to effective education and communication. Community building and humane education is the only way to combat this epidemic and end the cycles of suffering. Thank you @lovelyash5. You have become a rescuer and are making a difference on the front lines of the rescue battle.

👨🏽🏫 mashed bananoes : a how-to guide to mashed bananoes
• get u a couple of the spottiest yellow plantains eyes have ever shunned. the spottier, the sweeter. « blessed freckles are the best speckles » as i always say !
• rinse, cut off ends, longitudinally slice the peel but leave the peel on! Place in microwave to nuke the frick out of em for 3-4 minutes per plantain. ( if u do not believe in microwaves cut into 2” slices and boil them till innards are soft all the way through. Drain them quickly family. )
• mash them and season however your heart desires.
for the gram we went went with pink salt,black pepper, red chili flakes, smoked paprika, everything but the bagel, 21 season salute, nooch, hemp seeds, and hot sauce.
Awwww! We're protecting the world's richest reefs so that Nemo can always find his way home.
👀 I see you #findingnemo#rajaampat#indonesianoceanpride
I’m reposting this image with gratitude to a true hero in our world, @shawnheinrichs, who I’m thrilled to tell you, is being profiled in my upcoming book, Rescuing Ladybugs: Inspirational Encounters with Animals that Changed the World (release: September 6).
We all strive for happiness. Studies have shown that the macaron, also known as the French monster, is especially therapeutic to observe. Whenever you are facing difficulties in life, the view of a macaron puts everything in perspective and makes you instantly #happy . Indeed, owning a macaron will drastically increase levels of happiness and change your life. Plant this golden macaron at eyesight in your fridge and you will always be overwhelmed with joy, pride love and something else when opening the fridge (always make sure you keep the gate to your fridge closed or animals will have a feast).
Only for the rich. Price on request.
#awakening - It’s an act or moment of becoming suddenly aware of something.
Was I asleep all of my life? Was I conditioned to believe BS? Well thankfully I am a rebel and I’m curious. I question everything and that pisses people off. You will shed what is no longer supporting you or serving your purpose. And that’s fine either you are loyal or do yourself a favor and walk out of my life
Make no bones about it, awakening is not a walk in the park. It’s a destructive process.
Awakening provides us with a sense of all round peace- peace for the past, present and future. Through this peace, we begin to align ourselves with our greater purpose.
You have to break through all the layers and unlearn what you were taught. Ever wonder why small kids don’t have a care in the world? Or fear? They have not been conditioned
As I write I’m full of goosebumps. I see my friends getting here and I just want to let you know that it’s ok. It’s overwhelming but there is quite a bit of people on the #conscious side💛
