20th Anniversary of Norman Grubb’s Homegoing

By Friends of Norman

It was twenty years ago today that Norman Percy Grubb heard God’s ‘Home Call’. Norman’s last words…”Abba Father.” This is the letter we sent out announcing his death and memorial service held at Linda and John Bunting’s the following September.

NORMAN P. GRUBB

Born August 2, 1895

Glorified December 15, 1993

Great men need not that we praise them; the need is ours that we know them.

They are our common heritage. Whether we be of their faith or of another, whether we stand where they stand or tread another path, we are the richer that they lived.

He was very human, this hero of ours, fiery-tempered, passionate, imperious, loving withal, warm-hearted and generous, with quickness of perception and subtle English humor.

Full of contradictions, he had the frankness and carelessness of genius, and what he was he fully revealed without concealment or diplomacy. He was unsurpassed in his human sympathies, simplicity of character and transparent honesty.

Norman leaves a legacy to the church of Jesus Christ that he boldly called “Total Truth”:

“Paul’s mystery, now made manifest, which is Christ In You, the hope of Glory.” (Colossians 1:27)

and Galatians 2:20:

“I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live: yet not I,

but Christ liveth in me; and the life I now live in the flesh

I live by the faith of the Son of God.”

For this cause Norman’s life became a living sacrifice.

Now is the time for the church to hear Paul’s great self-discovery of Romans 6-8. The Holy Spirit will condition hearts to understand what, up until this time, has been a partial gospel.

Norman’s passing brings the closing of an era that opens the door to a new dimension for the body of Christ — a body that knows no separated self, no independent nature; the total unity spoken of by Jesus in John 17 and pressed through to by Paul in Romans 8:1

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.”

Norman gave us a total Christ in our total humanity, no longer having a divided consciousness fighting two natures. Through his love and acceptance, we became a body of faith people seeing with the single eye of faith and calling clean and whole that,which by the blood sacrifice and body death of Christ, God calls a new creation.

We have caught the commission, counted the cost, and now await the completion of the prophecy of Isaiah 60″

“Arise and Shine; for your light has come and the glory of the Lord

has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,

and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you, and

His Glory will appear on you. And nations will come to your light,

and Kings to the brightness of your rising.”

AND THE SHOUT OF A KING IS AMONG US !!!!

“By faith, you will find the answers that the Lord has for you ……..

May you always walk in faith until we meet in the Glory of God.”

Sunday Baptisms in Raytown MO

Thank you Jesus you healed and we baptized 5 people at Bradley & Cassandra’s place in Raytown, MO on Sunday afternoon.

We only met them on Thursday last week on the phone when we prayed for their mother’s thyroid to go down and it did. Praise Jesus!

Body, Soul, and Spirit Understanding

Over the years, Sue and I have tripped up time and time again in our marriage and relationships because our understanding of the body, soul, and spirit remained unclear. Often our soul life ruled the roost. We had read Norman Grubb and Jesse Penn Lewis before, but it didn’t seem clear to me/us.

Last night the Lord wanted us to get this settled once and for all, so today in our home church, the Holy Spirit led us to get this teaching again through John Paul Jackson’s short video on Soul and Spirit:

The Rest of the Gospel by Dan Stoneand Dan Stone’s book, The Rest of The gospel: When the Partial Gospel Has Worn Out.

Just a few minutes into the video teaching, Sue remembered in Dan Stones book, Chapter 6 about the Swing. The recording below is Sue reading and our discussion and prayer.

We did go on to watch the remainder of the recording and gleaned two scripture verses that support this lesson:

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrew 4:12)

and

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. (1 Thess 5:23-24)

Lord we pray that you grind this into us so we no longer trip up by our lack of understanding and we trust your anointing in us to teach us all things.
