NOTE: If you haven't watched the Prophetic Mandate videos we put out a few months ago, it would really help if you did that now. This blog is based on that series.
After watching The Mandate, you may be saying to yourself, "OK, I'm fired up now, but where do I go from here?" Well that's the question I intend on answering. If nothing else, I want to give you practical ideas that you can shape and use for your own, but please notice the word PRACTICAL.
If all we do is say "amen" and "I agree," we will go nowhere—again! When God speaks, that is sovereign. It's a breakthrough. But after that, whatever grace and inspiration we need will come ONLY as we are busy carrying out what the Lord has spoken.
Raw and stand-alone optimism is no friend here, neither is the kindly but evasive "God bless you." Action is the great and blessed response! And action from all. Action in prayer, action in evangelism, action in being the change God provides to the world.
Take a good look at the men of the Bible. They were men of action, men who with God worked the fields of blessing, men who sweat and cried and bled for God. That's the type of person I am writing to and that's the type who Christ will flow through in our times.
