Spiritual Gateway - Media Part 2, The Definition of Media
Apostle Doctor Alan Pateman
October, 20, 2017
         Hello again and welcome to part 2 of our series on spiritual gateways, specifically media. ​Hittites were mentioned first in the line up of seven major gateways. I’m chiefly going to refer to media in the context of being a news outlet, simply because other angles of media will be addressed when we deal with entertainment, later on in this series.

       As we saw in part 1, the Hebrew definition of Hittite was all about FEAR. Mentioned first out of seven, for good reason, as no other spiritual gateway holds as much power as the media.

         Hello and welcome to another Truth for the Journey. This is part one of an exciting subject, in regards to the implications of media and the influence that it has in society today. The scriptures are clear that this particular giant needs to be conquered, reversing the negatives that program us.

      Today we are putting the spotlight on the Hittites, which is the first of seven nations mentioned above that represent seven major areas of influence that we must conquer. “He that overcometh shall inherit all things” (Revelation 21:7 KJV).

     Now let’s look at what it means to be Born-Again. We ask Jesus Christ to come into our lives as our Lord and Saviour – (John 3:3,5-8,15-21 KJVS).

     "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God… Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

 New Age is in the Church
Apostle Doctor Alan Pateman
September, 8, 2017
     Let’s come back to Jesus and be Delivered of a New Age spirit and know what it really means to be Born Again. It’s true to say, in today’s world, life is very hectic. Yet as believers we have a phenomenal array of technology, media and rich teachings at our disposal. There’s no lack seemingly.

     Different revelations can be emphasized on such as grace or prosperity for example and we unintentionally make superstars out of our favourite preachers and teachers. This is fine to a degree. The concern arises when we start listening to them rather than God.

 Self-Exaltation Denies Grace
Apostle Doctor Alan Pateman
August, 25, 2017
     It is important to acknowledge that grace "empowers" not "pacifies!" Grace enables us to do what we are called to do and not just to sit on our morals thinking that we are exhausting the true purpose of grace!

     Grace means change; moving on towards holiness and righteous living as the scripture states, "How different is it now as you live in God's freedom, healed... and expansive in holiness..." (vs. 19) When God really touches our lives with His grace - there is change - everything is "...different, healed and holy!"

Seven Pillars or Spiritual Gateways
Apostle Doctor Alan Pateman

    Why are the NATIONS so significant to God? Clearly the Great Commission is not just about building churches but “discipling all nations.” How then do we do this and is the Church succeeding in this mandate?

   Different vying forces are influencing society today, in an endless power struggle. Whether bombastic or subtle, the stimuli are real. In recent times this battle is often referred to as “culture wars,” which basically involves, “conflict between distinctive groups that hold different ideals, beliefs and philosophies.”
