GENERATIONS: PART 1

This year we feel like the Holy Spirit is giving us language that helps to define what is in His heart for this season. It's not new words or new doctrine, but we are using these words in a way that we feel expresses what He is saying in a better way. We have started using the term "Generations" because of some revelation that Holy Spirit has spoken to us about the specific purpose and assignment of Nextgen Worship as a movement in the earth.

We are looking at a new generation that is going to redefine the shape and sound of kingdom in culture.

We are looking at a new generation that is going to redefine the shape and sound of kingdom in culture. What they will carry has not been released before, but they will carry it like a familiar old satchel slung over their back. They will naturally step into things supernatural with divine answers to problems like never before.

They are a part of the generations before them, and the generations to come after. They are a corner in the road, a beautiful seam sewn into the tapestry that God has been weaving since the beginning. They bring the new without denouncing the old, and they bring it with the strength of a thousand horses and the sound of a thousand lions. God is painting a picture of Himself through all of the generations, and the closer that picture gets to completion, the more the world is going to be transformed a with a release of heaven on earth.

I believe that God want's to see an entire generation mobilized to carry heaven and shift culture.

I believe that God want's to see an entire generation mobilized to carry heaven and shift culture. They are not going to accomplish this by simply starting more churches or ministries, but by uniting as the Body of Christ under His voice. When it comes to unity, I feel like we have been racing to false finish lines, merely scratching the surface of it's power in the earth. Unity has, in my experience, been kind of a shallow idea accompanied by a "we're supposed to have unity" attitude, when in reality, we are scared to death of it.

There is a lot of pain, sickeness, fear, and disaster going on in the world right now, but I feel like God is crafting a response to terror, a response to sickness, and a response to fear. He is going to do this through a generation of worshippers with a newly discovered identity and a new found permission to advance the kingdom by shifting culture outside of the church walls.

I believe that this generation is going to carry answers to world problems on a seriously epic scale.

I believe that this generation is going to carry answers to world problems on a seriously epic scale. I feel like the generations on the earth are going to demand justice and that Jesus is going to execute justice through them like never before. I believe that this generation is also going to be the best lovers the world has ever seen.

The world seems to be in chaos right now. Political parties are arguing over the best way to fix it, but the people of God, I believe, are going to carry the answers to chaos. In Genesis, the bible describes what took place in the beginning. The Spirit of God hovered over the waters, it took chaos and put it into order. The same Spirit that put chaos into order in the beginning is the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, and, it is the same Spirit that lives in the followers of Jesus. You see, when we learn to carry the presence of God, we are carrying the limitless resources of another world, another kingdom, a higher kingdom. In the presence of God is the potential answer to every problem that will ever exist. I believe that these answers are going to start being revealed, but they will have to come through a generation that carries heaven, a generation of worshippers that know Jesus and are actively and intentionaly responding to what He is saying right now.

You don't need anyone's permission to change the world.

Hear this, you don't need anyone's permission to change the world! When Jesus died, redemption was finished. As ambassadors of heaven, we are carriers of redemption. When we walk into a room, we change the options for everyone in it. Get into community and start taking world changing risks together! It's time to change the option's for the people and kingdoms of this world. It's time to start releasing redemption like light dispelling darkness. It's time to release heaven on earth. It's time to change culture for the generations.
