REDEFINING THE CHURCH

 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." - 1 Peter 1:3


The Lord is redefining His Church and calling them out of a place of stagnancy and redundancy into a place of passion.
Have you ever felt as if you were running around in circles, going through churchy motions but getting nowhere? When we lose sight of His Kingdom, our lives can be easily reduced to "playing church" which is no fun after awhile. Jesus only spoke of His Church – or Ekklesia roughly 3 times and mainly in the book of Matthew (Matthew 16:18, 18:17).


The Lord's original idea for His called-out assembly (Church) -- a supernatural army of sons and daughters pulsing with a passionate expression of His Kingdom on the earth. In order to see the fruit of Jesus on the earth, we must remember to live from the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Church is not meant to be a box in which we contain and theorize Heaven.

 

WE ARE GOD'S AMBASSADORS HERE ON EARTH

 

Every believer has the potential to wake up and smell the glory -- that recognizes who they are in Christ as sons and daughters. 
The Church of Jesus Christ should be a place of equipping the saints in:


who they are in Christ, 
their right standing with God, 
and walking in the Spirit.


Now they are ready to understand their CALLING in Christ and be propelled into their Kingdom destinies.
The Church is not meant to be a place where we get trained to go through the motions, it's meant to be a gathering and equipping of the representatives of the Kingdom of Heaven. 
As we ascend into passionate, Kingdom-living which results in an effective, powerful Church as well as personal life, we practice the operation of the gifts that in us such as faith, miracles, exhortation, etc.

 

CAMP AROUND THE CLOUD

 

"So it was continuously; the cloud would cover it by day, and the appearance of fire by night. Whenever the cloud was lifted from over the tent, afterward the sons of Israel would then set out; and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the sons of Israel would camp. At the command of the LORD the sons of Israel would set out, and at the command of the LORD they would camp; as long as the cloud settled over the tabernacle, they remained camped out." - Numbers 9:16-17


Kingdom people are led by the Spirit. We can experience an incredible stagnancy and/or burn out if we do not camp around the cloud of His glory.


If you find yourself feeling stagnant or unproductive, challenge yourself to step out in faith by praying for someone or discipling a new believer in their spiritual growth.
