By Apostle Skhumbuzo Sangweni
A revolution is coming to Christianity that will eclipse the Reformation in the sweeping changes that it brings to the church. When it comes, the present structure and organization of the church will cease to exist, and the way that the world defines Christianity will be radically changed.
What is coming will not be a change of doctrine, but a change in basic church life. The changes that are coming will be so profound that it will be hard to relate the present form of church structure and government to what is coming. The new dynamic of church life will overshadow the Great Awakenings in their social impact, transforming cities and even whole nations. It will bring a sweeping sense of righteousness and justice to the whole earth. However, we must not be fooled into thinking that this is an end of the night, or the end of man’s battle with darkness.
What is coming to the church is a metamorphosis from the cocoon stage to the emergence of the beautiful, soaring, beauty that the church is called to be. For a time this transformation will release a life force that will be so great that it will dominate the news around the world. The church will truly be the light of the world and the salt of the earth. The light of the gospel will shine through the church to the degree that the whole world will see it, and the gospel will be clearly, and powerfully presented to every nation on earth.
We are not quite to the flashpoint when this revolution will break out. As we get closer it is becoming more clear what it will look like, and what it will accomplish. The future leaders of the church are now being given a vision of radical New Testament Christianity being restored to the earth. It is time to heed the call and allow the Lord to lead His people to the new wineskins that will be able to hold what is about break out upon the earth. Whenever there is a choice to make between the new and the old, choose the new. To be a part of what is coming, we must have the faith of Abraham who was willing to leave the security of the known to seek God in unknown places. The future leaders of the church will be willing to risk all to seek the city that God is building, not man.
