Well, these past few days have been some of the best of my life. I literally feel sorry for those who live near Green Bay who missed out on this free Kingdom Culture conference – there is always next year… unless there isn’t.
I walked through the doors on Thursday night and had an instant connection. This was my tribe. Real believers in Adonai Yehoshua Meshiach (the Lord Jesus Christ) who are enjoying the freedom that the Good News taught properly brings us. By the way, did you know that you are legally bound to be free? Yes, that’s right. According to Romans 8:2 You are under the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus that has set you free from the law of sin and death. So, If you aren’t living free from the demonic spirit of sin or religion (my blood boils whenever I remember that bully), than you are breaking the law of freedom of the Sprit of life in Christ.
I was reminded of that by the speaker Bill Vanderbush.
I walked in and Bill was one of the first to greet me and hug me. He said, “I know you, right?” And by the Spirit I’m sure he did.
I was like, “What was your name again?” and proved how awkward I can sometimes be. I didn’t know he was the speaker, just a friendly brother named Bill I just met from this church that I instantly felt at home at. “Oh are you local? You should come to our Cup Of Joy concert.” I told him.
“No I’m from Orlando”, he said.
It started to dawn on me that he was the speaker and apparently he worked with Ted Dekker on his new book, The Forgotten Way, which was on the table behind him.
“Oh… You want to hear something crazy” I said, “I was just reading Ted Dekker at the breakfast table to my family this morning.”
Another man joined the conversation and informed Bill that last year he had prophesied that he would have a child and now his little one is nine months old. Bill said, “Yea I never do that but felt impressed to speak that word over you. That’s wonderful.”
I mentioned something about how we are in the creamy center of God’s goodness. The way Bill looked at me told me that he knew I had pulled that from John Crowder. He asked me if I went to his Mystical school when he came to the area. “How could I not? After all, he came all this way just for me”, I replied.
I also mentioned I had been listening to Graham Cooke in the car that day and Bill responded, “Yea, if you are listening to John Crowder and Graham Cooke, you are getting a very complimentary and sound grounding in the true Gospel.”
It was such a powerful and anointed time together.
Here’s Bill Vanderbush:
