The Story of Your Bright Future

The sequel to this blog is A Story For Your Heart.

Victor Frankel’s lesson learned from the holocaust is that people with hope survive and those without it give up. There is great hope in God’s plan for Reformation. We can even look at the chaos of current events and see Kingdom progress unfolding before our eyes “if” we see through the lens of Father’s plans for His Kingdom. The key is to understand the definition of hope. It’s our kingdom purpose, the specific calling and election on our lives as sons. When we unwrap purpose, the tapestry woven into our past, present and future aligns around that theme. Suddenly our lives and all the crazy, chaotic events that disillusioned us in the past, now make perfect sense. We ask from a mindset of loving God and willingness to co-labor with Him. Sons are Seers and Doers.

Rom 8:28And we know that God causes all things to work together for good
1) to those who love God, 2) to those who are called according to His purpose.

Father’s Reformation starts with repossessing His inheritance, both sons and nations. The Romans 8 sons for which all creation has been waiting, are repopulating the Divine Council vacated by the Genesis 6 fall of the original sons (Watchers). Jesus redeemed access to Father for believers to inherit their promised sonship on a relational, conversational level in the Council. Sons are the fulfillment of the Ezekiel 37 Army prototype. God is miraculously intervening in world affairs, but He is doing it through sons. Our religious tradition is to expect sovereign, sweeping revivals while we watch and applaud. Now, in this Kingdom age, we feel the same wind, but it’s inspiring a call for sons to pick up their mantles and engage in Father’s purpose “and” the desires already written in their hearts.

Sons are stepping into their identity and purpose, so that they can do the work of Reformation to bless cultures on multiple levels: personal, business, community, and nations. It will happen in every Mountain of culture. Here is a glimpse of what it will look like; compliments of one conversation in the Council. There will be many more conversations and many more points as this Reformation unfolds into a very bright future. What do you see?

Table from Reformer’s Handbook by Johnnie Enlow

Sonship – Father’s heart for sons

Sons are ascending to the Courts and Council so that they can navigate the tools that enable Reformation:

Courts of Heaven – to legally remove accusations that hinder people and Reformation. Sons gain the legal mandate to bind and loose (Mt 16:19), and open and shut (Isa 22:22) via decrees originating in the Courts.

Council – to gain clarity on Father’s purpose, the why and how of Reformation of Nations,

Just as the original sons were called “watchers,” sons can watch over their metron in the same sense of elders overseeing their flock. Ecclesia around shared purpose now happens in every mountain. The development of sons in their unique purpose is the goal of discipleship in every mountain. Feeling chosen for Father’s purpose feels like love. It’s the same purpose Father has written in the desires of our heart, even more satisfying!

It’s the spiritual responsibility of Sons to shape the future.

  • Be the watchers, the Seers (oversee from your position in the Council).
  • Release prophetic decrees from the courts; to Bind and Loose, to Open and Shut
  • Sons Co-labor, keep in step.

Media – the Spirit of Truth

The cooperation between prophetic revelation and journalism will point to Father’s purpose.

    • They carry a unique authority, courage to just do it.

  • New ideas will be downloaded in many places at once, trends in the same direction.
    • Breakthroughs in blessing people will be contagious.
    • New legislative approaches, constitutions will be copied.

The authority for leadership is “the inspiration to follow.”

  • Leaders will be celebrated,
