We are destined to transform the world. Our Father God intends to fill this world with “the knowledge of the glory of the Lord just as the waters cover the sea.” And we are the ones He has commissioned to carry out this heavenly mandate.
God is inviting us to co-labor with Him in bringing heaven’s reality to earth through His Love and Power. This is our Kingdom assignment. We are God’s chosen agents of transformation. He has called us to pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” And He intends to answer that prayer with “more than we could ever ask or imagine.”
His Kingdom comes first in us and then through us. He transforms us deep within so we can transform the world without. We are transformed to bring transformation.
Co-missioned with Christ
Before Jesus ascended to heaven He declared to His disciples, “As the Father sent Me, I send You.” This commission (co-mission) is for all believers. The Father sent Jesus as His Representative Son to show the world His Glory, His Purposes, His Love and Power. Jesus came to reveal the Nature of the King and His Kingdom. In the process He destroyed the works of darkness, eliminate the curse of sin and death, reconciled mankind to the Father through His death and resurrection. He brought heaven to earth.
We are co-missioned with Christ to reveal the Father as His representative sons and daughters. Like Jesus, we are to expand His Kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven.” From our perspective, this is a colossal task. Certainly, one individual or one church, or one movement can’t do the job. It will take a Family—the family of God, to finish it. And we all have a unique part to play.
Living in a New Reality
The greatest demonstration of the Father’s Love is the sending of His Beloved Son Jesus to die on our behalf. Through Christ we are now in His Kingdom and His Family. We are secure in Him and eternally inseparable from the Father’s Love. We have a new identity—sons and daughters of God. We live in a new reality—we are in Christ and He is in us. And by the Holy Spirit all of these become a present-day reality that we have the freedom to live in.
We have access to all of heavens because we are His beloved sons and daughters. Wrapped with our Kingdom identity is our inheritance, authority and destiny. How much of these do we want to access? By the Holy Spirit it is possible to access the more of God. It is the nature of the Kingdom of God to increase from glory to glory—in us, through us and amongst us.
The Cry of all Creation
There is a cry in the heart of creation. Paul writes, “For (even the whole) creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known (waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship).” Romans 8:19 AMP
This is the cry of the nations. They are aching to see God’s sons and daughters arise and shine. They want to see the glory of the Father through us—His children. We are commissioned to change the world that is hungry for the revealing of our glory as sons and daughters of the King!
The Father’s Dream
Transforming nations begins with the revelation of Who He is—Abba Father, and who we are in Him—beloved sons and daughters. To see the glory of God invade the earth, we are called to embrace our identity and to fully take ownership of our inheritance—the nations, all creation and all of heaven. This is the Father’s dream for all of His children. This is what I live for. This is my reality—transform the nations with His love and power and bring heaven’s reality to earth.
“I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” Psalm 2:7&8
