A NEW SEASON
Last week our HRock Church family shared a significant moment together as we said a bittersweet farewell to my close friends Karl & Deborah Malouff, who served as pastors alongside me and Sue during HRock’s 21 years of ministry!
A new wind is blowing, and the Malouffs are following the Lord into a new season in Austin, Tex., where both of their kids currently live and minister. It was a pleasure to bless and send off Karl and Deborah as they are about to begin another chapter in their prophetic journey with God.
discover your prophetic destiny
Earlier this year I gave several messages at HRock Church about prophetic destiny, and I spoke more on the subject when I was recently in Hong Kong. It’s my desire to empower believers—especially the next generation—to walk in their prophetic destinies!
Here are a few keys to a fruitful life of understanding your God-given identity and walking in His prophetic plan for your life!
empowered by Identity
God is a Master Planner and in His infinite wisdom He has mapped out a unique destiny for every person He has created. Just like when He first called the prophet Jeremiah, He also knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb (Jer. 1:5).
The Bible declares that “the steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord” (Psalm 37:23). So, if you are right with God and seeking His Kingdom, your destiny will be aligned with His purpose for your life!
EMPOWERED BY Purpose
Since the beginning of creation, God made two of His purposes for us very clear: You were created to have a fruitful life, and you are called to take dominion and subdue the enemy. He gives this mandate to both man and woman (Gen. 1:27-28).
With all the authority of heaven and earth, Jesus echoes that commission to expand His Kingdom all over the globe as you go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:18-20).
Whether you know it or not, you are either a witness for Jesus or against Him, simply by living your life. Make the resolution to be His witness and let your light shine to others!
EMPOWERED TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD
All of us are called to action by the Great Commission, and how we respond to that depends on each individual and his or her divine assignment. Why is that?
More than simply bringing in souls, we are called to spread the culture of God’s Kingdom, which is powerful enough to transform entire nations.
Your divine assignment will typically fit into one (or more) of the seven mountains of culture or spheres of influence: religion, education, business, family, government, media and arts & entertainment.
Today only 1% of the global Church is on the religion mountain in vocational full-time ministry. The reality is that God is calling His children to spread His love and occupy the top of all the other areas in society! (See Deut. 28:13.)
You are called to be the light of the world in every single “mountain” of the world!
This is the most exciting time in Church history. God is raising up leaders—like you!—to bring the light of His face to the whole world!
The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.” ~ Revelation 11:15
See you next week!
