Date

Saturday, 8 August to Saturday, 15 August 2015

Venue

Seelisberg school hall in Dorfstrasse

Theme – The Worshipping Bride living from the presence of the Father

The Hebrew word for bride is “Kallah” and comes from the root word “kallal”. The word “kallal” means, “to complete”.  If we want to be bride of the Messiah, this concept of completeness must find expression in us.  We must become “complete” as a bride by growing into the image of the Father and also complete the mission of the Messiah and walk into the original creation intention of the Father for us.

We are invited to live from His presence and not just trying to enter His presence. We have been created to make decisions from the image of the Father that will result in manifesting His presence in our everyday life. However, there is also another facet.  The ultimate expression of the love relationship between Yeshua and the bride is found in Songs of Solomon 7:10, “I am my Beloved’s and His desire is towards me”.  The implication of this verse is that we as the bride, has to complete Yeshua as the Bridegroom in our relationship by sharing His ministry.

Yeshua is the High Priest and we are a royal priesthood.  We have to live that prophetically by faith.  When we grow into completion by pursuing the perfect will for God for our lives, we will imitate Him as worshippers.  It is this that will defeat the enemy in his attack on us as saints.

During our week together at the Summer Camp we will explore how we can live such a life of worship from the presence of the Father that will form part of a prophetic expression as the worshipping bride living from the presence of the Father.  Moreover, we will look at how we can grow into to the perfect will of God, which will not only complete us, but also complete Him.
