The Family Table - A Means of Dominion

The Pat Martin Family

The family table, the activities surrounding it, and the way in which we order it are certainly tools and means of dominion.

This CD is an excellent guide especially this time of year when others gather around our tables who don't usually.

The Family Table - Doug Phillips' concluding review:

Our country is in disrepair and [the state of] our [family] table is a manifestation. People do not eat together anymore.

The Church is in disrepair and the table is a manifestation.

Father's do not lead together anymore.

Communion table in the meeting of the church is in disrepair because people no longer understand the meaning of Christ giving us food being our provider and rejoicing around the table of God.

Children are in disrepair because they are not taught the manners which are necessary to conduct themselves as men and women of God.

Women are in disrepair because they do not have the opportunities, or are not availing themselves of it, to demonstrate some of the most important giftings and responsibilities of being keepers at home that the Word of God be not blasphemed and are thus in disrepair.

Our world is in disrepair and the way that we approach family life is a manifestation of that.

But this day we can change that.
We can change that by saying we will begin to have meaningful meals! We will look at the significance of the meals in the scripture. We will disciple our children at the table. We will truly give thanks to God and when we come to the table, we will act like people of thanks by the way we comport ourselves. We will be building our families with structures that give honor to god that will be reinforced as Jesus did it, as Abraham did it, as others did it.,and we will recognize that this has, and always will be as long as there is an earth, one of the most important aspects of family life and a critical element of any multi-generational vision. And some day, some day, those who know Christ, will be able to realize the ulitmate fullfillment of this little microscopic picture of joy, they will do so in eternity when the sit at the very table of God and they rule over the twelve tribes.

Hear the entirety of The Family Table and it's learn of it's critical significance for building the body of Christ and it's effectiveness for reformation by visiting Vision Forum.

Interesting, but I disagree with some parts. My family sits down for a meal every night together and my mom works. Either she, my dad, or I cook.

But I'm not a vision forum worshiper.
