Making History Together
October 23, 2017
“God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It’s up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation.”
Deuteronomy 29:29 MSG
This is a season of revelation—not just information, but unprecedented revelation and impartation.
We are moving from the Information Age to the Revelation Age.
Revelation is defined as “the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to human existence or the world.”
It is rooted in the Latin revelare, which means “to lay bare.”
God wants to reveal the hidden things.
He wants to lay bare principles hidden in His Word for this particular juncture in history.
He wants to supernaturally disclose something the world needs now to His people—to those willing to seek Him and His Kingdom above all else.

God wants to reveal His plan and purposes to you and I. Why?
Because in the process, God will reveal each of us to ourselves so together we can boldly step out and make history.
We have yet so much potential resident within us hidden in the obscurity of ignorance.
But I say, “Let there be light!”
Ignorance is the presence of darkness in the absence of light.
But whenever you have light, you have insight and foresight and clarity and wisdom—you have vision.
God is able to supernaturally reveal things that otherwise you could not see or perceive. And more often than not, He will use the people He positions around you to call those things out.
However, you must be present and available to His promptings. You must be willing to listen.
You must be willing to see what He is showing you.
I decree and declare that the eyes of your understanding are being enlightened right now.
God is going to enlarge your territory and give you capacity to receive the revelation He is making available in this season.
Surround yourself with people of faith and submit yourself to those He puts in authority over you.
Listen now ON DEMAND to the 4 Points Broadcast where I walk you through each stage of the maturation process.
Now is the time to grow up into all that God is calling you to become.
It is so important to receive the revelation God is imparting when it comes to the keys and principles of growing up spirtually.
Don’t remain ignorant and immature.
The effective working of the entire Body of Christ depends on each of its members taking their part in leading change.
We each need the other to complete the good work God is doing within and among us.
The Church has a critical role to play in shaping history. It is the institutional arm of the Kingdom of Heaven that God put in the earth to transform and shape culture.
“The whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
Ephesians 4:16 NIV
We are Christ’s Body called to demonstrate His love and His will for humanity.
You and I are the shapers of culture and the makers of history…not you and me independent of one another, but working interdependently together joining forces and locking arms in the service of God’s greatest good.
We are the light bearers. God calls us “a city on a hill that cannot be hidden” (Matthew 5:14) and with that declaration comes the directive to “so let your light shine” (Matthew 5:16).
You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world…If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16 MSG)
The world is looking to the Church for hope and direction.
God’s people are looking to the Church for equipping and empowerment.
Where there are leadership voids and strife and divisions, it is the people of God who should be bringing light and wisdom into those dark situations.
“You are the light of the world.”
Matthew 5:14 NLT
But we must come together in the spirit of unity with one heart and mind seeking God for the answers we need.
There is so much focus in the New Testament on the importance of believers working together “in one accord” in order to demonstrate God’s love and glorify His name in the earth.
Growing up spiritually requires each of us to take our place in serving and submitting to one another in reverence for Christ (see Ephesians 5:21)—and then demonstrating that reverence for each other and God to the wider world.
Make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. (Philippians 2:2-4 NLT)
Let’s make history together.
Let’s press in together to receive the answers from Heaven our God wants to show us when we seek Him “endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3).
Join me in Atlanta Nov. 10-12 where together we will shift the atmosphere and shape the future.
“Until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.”
Ephesians 4:13 NLT
