The Truth of Kingdom Culture VS The “truths” of Modern Culture


The modern culture tells us the following:


  • If you made one mistake in the past, you are now unusable and unworthy of use or contribution in the future
  • That your mistake defines you and condemns you forever
  • That you are a fixed being, denying the transformational power of Jesus
  • That the essence of who you are is immutable, unchangeable
  • It denies that any of our unhealthy personality traits and character traits are able to be transformed and redeemed
  • It denies that our past traumas can be healed and redeemed
  • It believes that what was done to us will always adversely affect us.



Modern psychology, without the involvement of Jesus Christ, solidifies this thought that you are who you are, destined to always suffer what you’ve suffered.


This is not the truth of the Kingdom culture. Kingdom culture has this amazing message: Jesus came to redeem! He came to restore. He came to transform.


We are not stuck and immutable if we place ourselves in the hand of the Almighty. 


The power of Christ in us restores us.

The power of Christ in us transforms us.

The power of Christ in us SHOULD transform us!

The redemption of Christ, the power of God, and the sacrifice of Jesus pays for the sins of our past, sets us free from the burden of carrying that as our identity, or of labelling us with that ‘thing’.


It liberates us from the pain of the past. It uses what was sent to destroy us, to instead, strengthen us. Then in God’s strength and healing, He can than use us heralds and healers to help others experiencing similar issues, struggles and trauma.


It transports us from our victim-status, and propels us into victory living.


This transformational work of God is the same which took the persecutor, Saul, and made him, preacher, Paul;

that took the shepherd and worshipper, David, after becoming the adulterer-murderer, King, and restored him to God’s friend once again;

it’s the One who took the prostitute, Rahab, to a woman of renown, noted in the lineage of David - and ultimately, Jesus.


We are not our past, our unredeemed personalities, our wounds, what others have said about us, or what they have done to us.


We are who God says we are.

We are who God has sent Jesus to deliver.

We are those who are invited to be committed to, and sold out to the transforming work of God.

We are the ones who have been, and are being, forgiven, and set free.

We are the ones who are being called to the identity and power of Christ.

We are the ones who shall be proclaiming: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20


Step into His light. Deliver yourself into the hands of Redemption, of Restoration, of Transformation.

Do it today. Don’t let the lies of culture suck your life away. 

The life-giving God is there ready to welcome you.


“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” Ephesians 1:18-19


“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 3:17-18
