Part 2 Church Mindset vs Kingdom Mindset - Spiritual Awakening SWC

in jerrybanfield •  last year

I remember the first time I felt the Holy Spirit. For many years I didn't even understand what the Holy Spirit was. I knew it was a form of God ​but didn't realize you can host the Holy Spirit, and feel the presence of God. I was in Redding, California​ and I just attended a service at Bethel Church. I heard a song called Spirit Move, and I felt something shift.

There was something about this song that brought me peace ​and gave me a feeling of something more. After I left the service, I went to the movies to see NowYou​u See Me 2.

I have been a magician for over 20 years and I really enjoyed this film on many levels. However, I felt the holy spirit come over me during this movie while I was watching it in the theatre. It was almost like pins and needles, and it started on the top of my head then took over my whole body. It would tingle and get stronger and then totally disapear. I never felt this sensation before and It was almost as if I was being spoke to or somehow was connecting and communicating on a physical level. It was totally surreal and I dont think I ever felt it as strong since that day. Every now and then, i feel that same sensation and it comforts me and allows me to notice in a little more details what's going on around me at that moment.

Here is something I thought about after experiencing being awakened​. I have always related to life via computers. And what makes computers function is the operating system. And when you are running different operating​ systems, sometimes you are not compatible​ with other computers on the network.

So this was just something I created based on some of the teachings I​ discovered in the bible. What if the first people were operating under the Moses OS?

What if they can only do functions that the firmware was able to do. And when the upgrade came to​ Operating System Jesus, all the people who didn't​ upgrade their firmware were not able to function under the operating system Jesus.

And I believe Jesus had a message and the disciples got stuck on who Jesus was and didnt follow what he was teaching. Jesus spoke about the Kingdom. So what if this is the lastest Operating System?

Ok, I think after learning about the kingdom, it made alot of sense to me, why I didn't really like going to church. From a very young age, I always questioned why people had to go to a building and go through man to reach God. I also thought about what it must have been like to be the first people to come over from England to the united states, and how much of a struggle that was. It would make perfect sense that they would want to create something for people to believe in together to get through the challenging​ times. I also realize how the human mind works, and how they want power and control. So over time, ​I feel like church became more of a business than​ a way to reach God. So these were some things that I didn't agree with growing up, but here are some of the new things I discovered after learning about the Kingdom.

A kingdom mindset releases all saints as ministers in the marketplace. A church mindset merely trains people to serve in a church building on Sundays.

A kingdom mindset is a holistic approach that integrates the gospel with politics, economics, and public policy. A church mindset insulates the gospel from politics and public policy.

A kingdom mindset views the Bible as a blueprint to structure every aspect of society. A church mindset views the Bible merely as a pietistic book that enables us to escape the world, enter heaven, and be spiritual.

A kingdom mindset nurtures leaders who are world changers and “cultural creatives” who articulate truth to society. A church mindset nurtures leaders who speak religious language relevant only to church people.

A kingdom mindset speaks of the rule of God over the entire created order. A church mindset speaks of the rule of God through deacons and elders over those in a church congregation.

Churches with a kingdom mindset equip 100% of the saints to fill up all things in every realm of life (Ephesians 4:10-12). Those with a church mindset have as their primary goal to equip the 2-3% of the congregation called to be full-time church pastors, ministers, and missionaries.

When I read these Church Mindset vs Kingdom Mindset, something inside of me just exploded. It was something that really resonated with me. It made to much sense. And I always remember asking priests, Why do we have to die to go to heaven? Why can't we live it on earth right now? So when I learned more about the Kingdom mindset, it was all about bringing Heaven to Earth and living it now.

We as a culture also have tools to track our finances, but why don't we have anything to track our spirituality?

Also a place to connect with others who are on the same awaken state.
