Regenerative prophecy and radical prayer

      No Comments on Regenerative prophecy and radical prayer

Christ unveils the heart of regenerative prophecy to the desert by giving glory to God in the midst of death, opening the seal of prophetic witness to glorification, which is radical, doxological prayer in the heart.  Radix means root, hence, the prayer of the Spirit in the heart is radical because it uproots what is not of God, to root us… Read more »

Single Eye: Body of Light

      No Comments on Single Eye: Body of Light

Jesus said: The light of the body is the eye.  If your eye is single, your whole body will be full of light (Mt 6: 22).  Desert elders interpreted this saying in the light of Jesus’ teaching on turning, metanoia, and the practice of seeing, the praxis of theoria.  The single eye is the eye of wisdom, of wholeness and sound… Read more »

Prophecy and Prayer

      No Comments on Prophecy and Prayer

Prophecy is generated in the Word that names the Name, whilst prayer proceeds in the Spirit to abide in the Word, revealing a place of grace in the midst which unveils the Face.  This place of grace has no shadow, being the place where grace unveils uncreated light, revealing the unveiled Face of glory.  In this place of grace, Great… Read more »

Realm of Oneness

      No Comments on Realm of Oneness

The Holy Name of the Father reveals a realm of oneness which is shared with the Son by generation and with the Spirit by procession from the Father, oneness which is the Father’s uncreated presence always and everywhere.  The Father is the source of oneness, being the origin of generation and of procession, but the Son and the Spirit share in this… Read more »

Prayer of the Spirit in the heart

      No Comments on Prayer of the Spirit in the heart

The prayer of the Spirit in the heart is unceasing but unnoticed until wisdom discerns glory in enlightened vision (theoria).  The Jesus prayer contains two divine Names, Lord (YHWH) and Jesus (YAH shuah), but the third revelatory Name, ‘I AM,’ (EHYEH), is implicit, because when it is God who speaks, the two third person Names, YHWH and YAH, are both revelations… Read more »

Prophecy of Prayer

      No Comments on Prophecy of Prayer

The prophecy of prayer springs from God’s prophetic God-centred glorification of God, but it is the Spirit that prays with God’s God-centred glorification of God, so it is in the Spirit that the hidden mystery of the Holy Trinity abides eternally in the Holy of Holies.  Prophecy of prayer awakens wisdom to the glory of Holy Trinity, grounded in the… Read more »

Prayer of the Name of Jesus

The Prayer of the Name of Jesus is the life and joy of Holy Orthodoxy, because it plants Christ’s Name of Truth in the heart, awakens wisdom to renew all things in the Spirit of Truth and unveils uncreated light, restoring glory through glory to the Father.  Holy Orthodoxy has always centred in right-glorification of the saving Name of hallowing Truth,… Read more »

Wisdom’s Eternal Gospel

      No Comments on Wisdom’s Eternal Gospel

The wisdom of the desert is the revelation of the Name, which is an Eternal Gospel proclaimed to all the inhabitants of the earth, all nations, tribes, languages and peoples (Rev 14:6).  The Name is an Eternal Gospel because it declares the good news of God’s eternal Kingdom in our midst, revealing God’s timeless, sovereign ‘I’ awareness and ‘AM’ presence here… Read more »

Desert prophecy and prayer

      No Comments on Desert prophecy and prayer

Prophecy in the desert speaks words (logoi) of Logos to communicate the Name, whilst prayer prays ineffable words of awe, joy and wonder that God reveals God through God here, unveiling his Name in the midst.  Prophecy says, ‘God is ‘I AM’ unveiling God in the midst.  Turn and see!’  Prayer humbly turns and sees who sees here in the… Read more »

Ineffable utterance

      No Comments on Ineffable utterance

The mystical theology of Eastern Orthodox Hesychasm speaks words of wisdom as prophecy which elders impart to awaken prayer, but elders know it is the Spirit that utters ineffable words in the heart that open the eye of the heart.  The Apostle Paul says he cannot express what was communicated to him as ineffable utterance in the third heaven (2… Read more »
