Transforming Culture

Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” (Mt. 28:18-19)

Have you understood your mission… as a quest to disciple nations!

RevivalHut Ministry is connecting Christian leaders, who will plug into a 3 year training program… to an unfathomable adventure in Kingdom Pursuits. We call these spiritual incubators – Apostolic Training Centers. They are not just Bible Studies, but a life course… like a journey that molds raw humanity into true disciples of Christ. There are so many important transitions that must be made within our mindsets and our personal convictions in order to fulfill the mandate of Jesus, who said “pick up your cross and follow Me”.

I would like for you to consider your fellow Christian brothers as leaders and part of your team… a Kingdom Team! You will not be in competition for anything, but looking to advance the Kingdom for the benefit of all the churches in the region, as well as all the people within reach of those congregations. We are aiming at transforming the culture… beliefs, activities and governing structures must be looked at through a new and fresh perspective – through the Biblical Truth revealed in Jesus.

7 Mountains of Influence:

“Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.” (Isaiah 2:2)

We promote the idea that all societies emerge and define themselves by 7 platforms or spheres of influence…

1) family, 2) education, 3) government, 4) business, 5) the arts & entertainment 6) media & communication and 7) religion.

If our goal is to transform culture, then we as God’s Kingdom People must be disciplined and authentic; as well as being lead by the Holy Spirit. We need to see ministry as part of every sphere of society and we need to make an impact. We need Kingdom minded Business People, Entertainers, Scientists, Government Officials, etc. – and we need to gain ground in the arenas of the spirit by ruling well in the midst of the opportunities God offers us.

So the key is to know God and understand that He created these models of influence and understands how they should function properly from His perspective. We must be trained in spiritual truth so that we can obey the prayer of Jesus (Mt. 6:10) praying, believing and demonstrating Kingdom Impact – “that His Kingdom would come and His Will would be done on earth as it is in heaven”. We believe the Bible speaks directly to us and unlocks the truth of how God’s People can become His disciples and walk in His Glory, ruling well and releasing cultural transformation.

And we are watching it happen in regions all over the world.

The Strategies: Psalm 133

Some of the steps that are important are 1) developing networks of visionary Christian leaders, 2) gathering these leaders for prayer and training sessions, 3) encouraging one another and celebrating achievements as a team and 4) honoring one another as fruitful laborers in the vineyard within our reach. As Psalm 133 proclaims to us… that is where God commands the blessing! In the midst of anointed Kingdom minded Leaders – united for the purpose of advancing God’s agendas in the Earth.

This is the basis for the RevivalHut Network. This is the priority that sustains revival fire and a passion for cultural change. Our hope is to empower leaders to see themselves differently, yet consider that God sees ministry in all arenas of life not just pulpit ministry, like those who preach as pastor or teacher. We invite ladies and men, we encourage business people and educators and develop passion for the community we serve, because we believe the Church must become the unified force for change in the Earth. Its not about how many people come to our churches, but how many leaders are influencing the culture for the Kingdom of God. Yes we see wonderful Church growth, but even more we see practical changes being made in society.

“…teaching them to observe all the things I have committed to you; and lo I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Mt. 28:20)

Say Yes!

“For all the Promises of God are Yes in Him. And in Him Amen, unto the glory of God - through us.” (2 Cor. 1:20)

Authority & Power:

Did you know that regardless of what others say and do, you have the spiritual authority to rise above their actions and words! (Job 22:28) In fact, not even the devil himself can resist or thwart the plans of a Child of God when he or she uses the authority that God has placed in their hands! (Lk. 10:19)(Mt. 16:19)

Releasing Faith:

Your faith can change your world! No matter how difficult things might seem at this moment or how small your faith may feel. Even a little faith can do great things when its released. But you must get it engaged toward your situation if you expect to breakthrough into the place God is calling you. When your voice agrees with God’s purposes it is going to change that which is affecting you negatively.

God has given you dominion over your life. Dominion is the power and the authority to govern and control that which concerns you. He has put you in a position to grow in faith and every time you speak, you are setting the limits upon the enemy’s approach. God has commissioned you to set the spiritual boundaries and utterly defeat those things that are not in sync with God’s will for your life (2 Cor 10:3-6). Its a battle over your affections, but when God has captured your heart, the devil can’t move you.

Say ‘Yes’ to His Promises:

You’re a Believer! Your confession of faith is your “yes”. Set the decree ever before you and praise Him with the shout! Remember: “Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Mt. 18:18). You have been given authority on earth to decree God’s will and He will back it up in heaven! God gave dominion for a holy purpose and you have the privilege to be used by God to speak His will and declare His desires on Earth (Mt. 6:10).

“Will of God – Be Done… On Earth as it is in Heaven!”

The Kingdom Lifestyle

The Be-attitudes are the Kingdom Lifestyle… the Kingdom Attitudes! (Mt. 5:1-12)

These are the things I’m aiming at… not because I need approval, but because they reflect a transformed reality within! I live from a position of approval!

  1. to be poor in spirit,
  2. sensitive about what touches the heart of God,
  3. embracing a spirit of meekness,
  4. hungering and thirsting for righteousness,
  5. offering mercy,
  6. walking in purity of heart,
  7. being a peacemaker,
  8. and having the courage to stand honorably in the midst of persecution!

Whether people revile me for my convictions or my testimony – I will choose to rejoice and be exceedingly glad. For My Great Reward is in Heaven awaiting me… with arms wide open!

The 8 Beatitudes:

These character traits are the evidence that a person’s life has truly been revived by God. They represent the “blessed” posture… the posture that hits the mark. Some versions translate the blessed posture as the attitude that is “happy” and carries a vibrancy of spirit. Its perhaps the most effective visible sign of the empowerment of the Holy Spirit! Being a “blessed person” – means that I’ve been empowered to succeed and prosper in the Kingdom. Its the key character traits of a disciple of Jesus.

  • It is the Kingdom Lifestyle – because it displays the transformation of the heart… defining love (Jn. 15:9) and spiritual maturity (Eph. 4:11-16).
  • It is the Kingdom Lifestyle – because it characterizes the anointing placed within an ambassador of Christ carrying out their mission… co-laboring with God in the Earth (Mt. 6:10)(Mt. 11:1-19).
  • It is the Kingdom Lifestyle – because it aligns the believing heart with Kingdom purposes… cooperating with God’s Grace (Mt. 5:19 & 48)(Rom. 5:1-5) and power (Acts 1:8).

Jesus said, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”  …and then it was within reach! (Mt. 4:17 & 4:23-25)

Supply Line

“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19).

The goal of the Christian faith is all about connecting to a “supply line”!

God offers all of His people a supernatural flow of grace from Heaven to Earth. I think it is interesting that we so often see the above verse as a promise to eliminate our need, when in fact it is an invitation to God’s Divine flow of grace. If you eliminate the need you also eliminate the flow! As a follower of Christ, I am no less “needy” than any person alive on planet Earth. Yet I have something of significance that is sufficient to calm the storms, heal the wounds and satisfy the thirst of my heart… I have found a Divine flow of grace!

Three points of clarification are made by the Apostle Paul about this supply of grace to meets my need.

  1. First it is a flow from God, not hard work or personal achievement, I cannot get grace by my skill… it comes as a response to my faith in God. He is My Heavenly Father; Jehovah Jireh, “My Provider”! I have chosen to place my trust in Him and the wisdom and power of His guidance in my life has opened up doors that continually meet my need.
  2. Secondly the place of rich grace is in glory. Glory really is a place, different than a natural place, but it is a place that I must go often to get the flow moving on my behalf. Glory is a spiritual realm of rich fellowship where by the faith I spoke of takes me for relationship and worship. I connect to the source of grace… God – Himself.
  3. Third and perhaps most important is that all grace is supplied in and by Christ Jesus. It is Jesus who maintains my covenant privileges before God in Heaven. He is the One who stepped into my place and took my sin at the cross. It was by His blood I was made righteous and became qualified to inherit His promise of grace instead of condemnation.

I have been given power to become a Son of God (Jn 1:12) and power to be His witness (Acts 1:8). By Jesus all things are made new (2 Cor 5:17) and a supply line of grace has been made available in the “glory realm” for me to go get… any time I have need.

Have you ever thought about Jesus’ own words… when He was asked by His disciples to teach them how they should pray? Its important, because it sets the standard pretty high on what we should expect our provision to look like. He said pray like this… “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” (Mt 6:10). Also, He said …keep asking, keep seeking and keep knocking for the Father in Heaven delights in giving good things to His children (Mt 7:11). Grace will flow, if you simply spend time in the glory…  with Your Heavenly Father.

Recognizing your need is the first step to opening up the supply line!

Hold Nothing Back

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Rom. 12:1-2)

Worship is the logical response of the created… toward the Creator! Scripture invites us, as the lovers of God to worship Him with all we are… expressive and without reservation (Mt. 22:37)(Jn. 4:23-24). We find ourselves accepting His invitation to “come up…” and see the worship taking place in Heaven (Rev. 4:1-2). Holding nothing back is the atmosphere around God’s Throne.

The worshiper exists for a purpose… to be a demonstration of “on earth as it is in Heaven…” (Mt. 6:10).

  • Worship is for us a longing and release of the beauty of Heaven through creative flow.
  • Worship is the sounds of Heaven through music and the movement of Heaven through dance.
  • Worship is the harp and the bowl… the tears and the joy of connecting to the Father’s Heart.

It has often been said that the “signature experience” at heavenly gates is the joy of God’s Manifest Presence.

When you come to any spiritual gate, you may notice that worship is different. The Holy Spirit ushers us into new and intimate place under an open Heaven. This is where we are learning to express deep passion to God that He is worthy to receive.

We seek the heavenly experience: to be lead by the Holy Spirit and flow as One with Him in spontaneous motion and sounds.

Our focus in worship is to prefer the Lord, rather than personal needs, desires or musical preferences. Holy Spirit is teaching all of us how to minister to the Lord, as we choose within our hearts to look into the face of Jesus, gazing on the beauty of who He is to each of us. We believe that as we learn to do this, the Lord will release more and more of His Glory on us corporately. As each one of us becomes radically extravagant in our worship, He will become more extravagant in our living. We want to worship as ones who could never give back to God the Glory He deserves.

Exhaust yourself on Him, holding nothing back… reserving no reputation for yourself.

We must choose the worshiper’s identity… becoming known as people who are desperate for God.
