About

This blog is dedicated to the sharing of experiences of life for those that have, or are daring to take their thinking, and hence their experience beyond defined institutional boundaries. The word ‘beyond’ is intentionally used to ensure this is not to exclude the experiences within the boundaries of institutions, but recognizing institutions do not define the whole experience of life, but just a portion. Life doesn’t just happen inside the walls, but much more so outside. The institutions considered here are primarily, but not limited to religious ones that shape our belief system and ultimately determines who we become. , “..as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he ” (prv 23:7). Apart from religious systems, man has a way of creating other institutional systems to maintain order in various aspects of life in the society. while the motive in almost all the cases is initially to serve the needs of the people, as the institutions grow , they get a corporate life of their own and become masters of the people.

The institutions of Jesus’ days on earth attempted to confine him within their boundaries, but they could not hold Him. This shall also be the case for those that  seek to be His true followers for, “…the servant is not greater than his lord…” (Jn 15:20)

    I’m praying for you dear brother! Praying that the Lord will give you a fresh revelation of himself and his purpose for you coupled with every grace necessary to pursue his preferred future.
    The personal broadening and deepening brought about by this challenging season is a tool your Father is using for a fuller expansion and a clearer expression of himself. Keep your ear on his heart with expectation. He will be unpacking some things you have never seen before and that his body very much needs.

    Rest in his arms. Reflect on his faithfulness. Expect new revelation.

    I’m excited to hear what you will be sharing going forward.

    Richest blessings dear brother!

  4. Hi Patrick, we here in S.A. have been shocked by the Al Shabaab killings in your country. I have been following events in our local press and BBC reports, etc. If you have a moment to write me about your feelings regarding this tragedy, I would very much appreciate it. Kenya is in my prayers. With love in Jesus.

    • Hi Erroll,
      Thank you very much for writing and your concern for what is happening in our country. We need the prayers of saints both as a country and as the church here that we’d keep the faith amidst the happenings and that the hand of evil would be stayed. Concerning my feelings, the predominant ones are that of sadness, and helplessness. Beyond what I am feeling right now, I’d not want to preempt the answers to the many unanswered questions in my conversations with the Lord. You could write to me on email.

      Thanks again and keep praying.

      Love,
      Patrick

  5. Patrick, this is an excellent description of what has happened to the church over and over again in the last 1900 years. It was well on its way to having a life of its own without Christ as we read Jesus’ words and warnings to the seven churches of Asia at the end of the first century through John. In fact one of them which portrays the end times churches of today, was smugly secure in its own wealth and blind nakedness with Jesus left outside its locked doors asking to be let in.

    It is interesting to me that Jesus repeats the same warning seven time, “Let he who has ears hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.” The church had already started to turn a deaf ear to His Spirit whom He sent to guide and lead us into all truth. Is it any wonder that institutionalized Christianity is so far off track today? How many churches do you know of that listen to the Spirit for their direction and then obey? I know of none here in America, rather they follow the leading of paid professionals who they treat like gods.

    “Has a nation changed its gods, even though they are no gods? But my people have changed their glory for that which does not profit. Be appalled, O heavens, at this, be shocked, be utterly desolate, says the LORD, for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:11-13 RSVA)

    God bless you, my brother.

    • Thank you Michael for the very encouraging comments. Is it not unfortunate that the rest of the world seem to take after the trends of the west in every area including Christianity, and therefore one will see a lot of the same things you mention about the church in America here in Africa also?
      There is hope however as I believe the Lord has preserved for Himself a remnant who will not bow to the pressure to compromise with the world. How I pray that the Lord will count us worthy to be in that company.
      I have really been blessed by the ministry to the body you are doing at the wilderness voice and with sister Suzanne of entering the promised land.

      Blessings to you brother.
