Revelation & Revolution in the 21st Century

Christianity is a revelatory faith. What has God revealed to you today?
(“Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in Heaven.” –Jesus Christ in Matthew 16:17)

Speaking from humility, love, and brokenness releases God’s revelation.
Speaking from position, title, or expertise replaces God’s revelation with human authority.

When the body of Christ meets and one part does everything, while the other parts are inactive and immobile, the diagnostic analysis is paralysis.
–Lord, heal Your body so that every part may freely, faithfully, and fearlessly function as prompted by revelation from the Head — the living, resurrected Jesus Christ!

The church is built by direct inward revelation from the living, resurrected Jesus to your heart.

The church is built by direct inward revelation from the living, resurrected Jesus to your heart.

1st Century Christians practiced seeker-disturbing church. (See how their spiritual revelations created a revolution & shook things up in the Book of Acts).
–21st Century Christians practice seeker-friendly church.
Which do you prefer?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
