WHAT WILL BE
Upgrade is a kingdom principle and we, as the Body of Christ, need to have a serious value for progression. Religion has no value for progression because it always fights for the way things use to be – history. In the Kingdom, we fight for the way that things can be – destiny. Every time redemption shows up, upgrade shows up.
Redeemed people need to be able to show, “I’m not living according to how things use to be, but how things are now, and this is how things are going to be.”
You need to be able to say, “I’m not going to wait until I make a million dollars to make a million-dollar difference, because I know that’s where I’m headed. I’m not going to wait until my family has its act together before I learn how to be an awesome dad or mom, because my family is headed toward unity in Christ. Amen.”
I’m talking about having a kingdom anticipation of better, more and greater.
Religion will never do that. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Christian religion or a non-Christian religion, religion is from hell. Because it fights for the past, it fights for what no longer matters. In these last days, there’s no time to fight for the irrelevant.
The opposite of upgrade is damage, harm, impair, injure, spoil, tarnish, blemish, deface, disfigure, flawed, diminished, lessen, lower, reduce. There’s no redemption or Kingdom in any of that.
Synonyms for upgrade are improvement, advancement, enhancing, increasing, promotion, better, elevate, progress. This is not only what’s happening to redeemed people, this is what redeemed people should be doing. Redeemed people say, “Not on our watch. King Jesus rules and reigns in my life so we’re going to move the Kingdom into this situation right here.”
This is what redemption does. Are you progressing as a redeemed believer in Jesus? Are you living for and from your destiny? Put your history behind you and move forward to what can be – what will be. That’s what’s real.
