Divine Revolution

Divine Revolution

Divine Revolution is the personal, regional, and global expansion of God’s Kingdom through His manifest presence. Divine Revolution is created in the love of God and dedicated to worldwide transformation of Charismatic Renewal, Revival and Reformation.

We believe and live the prayer, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Therefore, we partner with the King in natural and supernatural ways to establish mercy, justice, and righteousness until He comes. Matthew 6:9-10; Matthew 10:7-8; Isaiah 9:7; Isaiah 33:5-6; Micah 6:8; Matthew 10:42; Matthew 25:40; John 14:12; James 1:27; Matthew 12:22-29.

Our first ministry is to God. As we behold Him, we are moved to worship with joyous passion. Psalm 27:4; Luke 10:39–42; James 4:8; Psalm 1:1–3; Psalm 23:6; Psalm 26:8; John 4:23; Psalm 22:3.

As believers, we are all in full-time ministry as God advances His Kingdom into every area of society. Our work and efforts both inside and outside the church are sacred and valuable acts of worship to God. 1 Peter 2:9; Romans 12:1; Matthew 5:13-16; Colossians 3:23-24; Daniel 6:3; Proverbs 22:29; Ephesians 6:5-9; Matthew 25:31-46.

Although we will experience resistance and conflict as the Kingdom advances, we expect the culture to be changed as people come to salvation and take their places in God’s purpose for the world. John 15:19-21; John 16:33; Colossians 1:13-14; 2 Corinthians 4:8-11; 2 Corinthians 12:10; Nehemiah 2:1-10; Matthew 5:13-16; Acts 19:11-41.

We owe the world an opportunity to experience the power of God and an invitation to salvation because Jesus sent us into the world, just as the Father sent Him, in the power of the Holy Spirit. John 20:21-23; 1 Corinthians 2:4-5; John 17:18; 1 Thessalonians 1:5; Matthew 28:18-19; Matthew 5:14-16; Luke 10:1-9.

Nothing is impossible with God. Therefore, no person or situation is beyond His ability to bring complete restoration. Matthew 17:20; Mark 10:25-27; John 15:7; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Psalms 103:1-7; Luke 1:34-37.

We believe all can be healed because Jesus demonstrated the Father’s will in healing all the sick and demonized He encountered. Matthew 4:23; Matthew 12:15; Matthew 14:14; Luke 9:11; Acts 10:38; Psalm 103:3-4; Matthew 14:24-33; Acts 3:1-10; James 2:14-18; Mark 10:46-52; Matthew 9:27-38.

Jesus has won absolute victory! We are forgiven and freed from the enemy’s power of sin, sickness, lies, and torment. Now we live in the power of righteousness, healing, truth, and joy! Romans 8:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:4; Galatians 2:20; Hebrews 2:14-15; Galatians 5:22-24; 1 Corinthians 15:56-57; Revelation 1:12-18.

We are adopted as royalty into God’s family and commanded to help others be reconciled with Father and come home.” Romans 8:14-17; John 1:12; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21; 1 Peter 2:9; 1 John 3:1; Luke 15:11-32.

As a lifestyle, we practice recognizing God’s presence while we minister to others, attempting to say what He is saying and do what He is doing. John 5:19–20; John 5:30, John 12:49–50; John 14:10; 1 John 4:16–17.

God wants to communicate with His family. It is important for us to actively listen for His voice and experience the variety of ways that He communicates. John 10:26-28; John 16:13; Matthew 4:4; Isaiah 50:4-5; 1 John 2:27; Acts 2:17; Numbers 11:29; 1 Kings 19: 9-13.

Scripture calls us to earnestly desire the gift of prophecy, which is to speak on God’s behalf to strengthen, encourage, and comfort people. We desire to say what the Father is saying to help people grow in their identity and discover their God-given purpose and value. 1 Corinthians 14:1-4; John 12:49; 1 Timothy 4:14-16; Acts 2:17; 1 Corinthians 14:24-25; Acts 13:1-3.

Prophecy is not one-way communication. It involves two people hearing from God: the one who gives the prophetic word and the one who receives it. With the Holy Spirit, Scripture, and our community, we judge the spirit and accuracy of the words we give and receive. Holding on to what is good, we let go of what is not. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22; 1 Corinthians 14:29; Luke 9:55; Acts 21:10-22:24; Acts 27: 10, 22-24.

The Bible is the ultimate, authoritative revelation unlike any other; nothing will be added to it. Therefore, prophecy should never contradict properly interpreted Scripture. Galatians 1:6-9; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15; Matthew 7:15-20; John 8:31-32; 2 Peter 1:16-21.

We recognize and affirms that every person is valuable and powerful. We are made in God’s image; He died to restore us to relationship with Him, therefore we are significant. Genesis 1:26-28; Ephesians 4:23-24; Psalm 139:13-16; Romans 12:10; 1 Corinthians 12:14-26; 1 Peter 2:17; Matthew 26:6-13.

We search for and celebrate the best in people, in spite of our differences. We respond to people based on their God-given identity and the honor in our hearts, not their behavior or self-definition. 1 Corinthians 12:14-26; 2 Corinthians 5:16-17; James 2:1-5; Philippians 2:3; 1 Samuel 24:1-10.
