Bill Johnson, the senior leader of Bethel Church in Redding, Washington D.C, speaks at the "Kingdom Culture Leadership Summit " held from Jan. 23 to 25, 2017. The theme of the summit was "Cornerstone of a Glorious Church - Built on the Foundation of Kingdom Core Values."
Bill Johnson mentions that the paramount kingdom value lies in the presence of God. The mere hope of the second coming of Jesus Christ brings about that some Christians do nothing but wait. He claims that the church waits for the Lord's second coming while the hope of the world is the power of the gospel. We desire the presence of God who influences all the aspects of our life. God is not only with us in our ministries, but also anytime.
Christians should represent God in the world, understand his ideas and wills so that their lives can be transformed by God. God reigns and has his complete plan.
The pastor states that Christians are given a mission to pray for the rulers and authorities and let the kingdom culture invade the world.It's Christians' responsibility to be priests. When we do such intercessory prayers, the heaven above them will be open.
Bill concludes the message with the story of Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector, whom Jesus honored yet disrespected by others, leading to his repentance.
