Heaven’s invasion has to do with more than redemption. It has to do with God’s redemptive rule. We are not merely attempting to get some people to heaven, we are part of a great plan to bring the rule of God into present circumstances. People don’t just need a ticket to heaven, they need the rule of God now in their bodies, families, finances and workplace. (Acts17:6; 28:31)
“Make disciples” (Mt.28:91-20) does not mean: teach others to be dependent upon receiving blessings. Rather, it means to teach others to BE a blessing (like Jesus). The teaching, experiences and writings of the apostles matured, developed and equipped believers to be agency through which the Kingdom would be evidenced in this earth (Acts8:12;14:22; 19:8; 28:23,31;1Co4:20).
As the people of God assemble today may they praise from their hearts, give from their obedience and hear from true Biblical understanding so that they might arise with God’s power to meet the needs of the hurting and oppressed. “I’m sending you off to open the eyes of the outsiders so they can see the difference between dark and light, and choose light, see the difference between Satan and God, and choose God. I’m sending you off to present my offer of sins forgiven, and a place in the family, inviting them into the company of those who begin real living by believing in me.” (Acts 28:17-18, Msg)
