Apostolic Admonition

October 31, 2010

The apostolic role is to set-up an order to affect culture so that heaven feels at home.   In 1 Timothy 2, Paul gives Timothy an apostolic admonition, he provides cultural transformation instruction.  We have been given a mandate to invade a system as servants to affect cultural transformation.
When the Lord brings a word, it must be opposed.  The Word of God over your life will attract conflict.  The conflict is the only way we can see the strength of heaven over the word. 
As we embark to transform a city, we must have the giving of thanks for all men.  Giving thanks is one of the most revolutionary traits possible, it is a posture of humility. Everything you immerse in thankfulness has increase.  He has put a capacity in us to expand the work of redemption in the earth with a spirit of thankfulness.  Your ability to have thankfulness for whomever is a leader is the most transforming ability to affect a culture.
