DNA contains genetic information or instructions. In a healthy organism, the DNA gets “turned on” and expressed. The design of the DNA will manifest unless there is a mutation or disease which suppresses the accurate expression of the DNA. In the history of Christianity, error and negative dynamics have been introduced which have worked against “Apostolic Christianity.” But many believe that the Holy Spirit is restoring what Jesus envisions throughout the world today.
- Thank God that you’ve been born again by the word or seed of God. DNA.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to fully turn on and express the DNA of the Kingdom … Apostolic Christianity.

Resource — Spirit-Empowered Christianity in the 21st Century
(via Amazon) What does a re-vision of the Charismatic/Pentecostal Spirit-empowered movement look like in the coming years of this millennium? The first century of this revival seems to attest that the Lord raised up the holiness and Pentecostal movements not only to be custodians of these distinctive truths, but the perpetuators of them as well. If any generation ceases to accentuate this emphasis, the movement likely will forfeit the right to be recognized as such.
When the Pentecostal message is preached, published, and proclaimed through triumphant song, an atmosphere is sustained for people to experience anew and again the reality of salvation, holiness, charismata, wholeness, and hope. Such a revival will be biblically based, rationally sound, traditionally accurate, and experientially real.
Spirit-Empowered Christianity in the 21st Century is an authoritative compilation of the presentations from thirty leaders in the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement given at the Empowered 21 Conference in Tulsa, OK, in April 2010. These chapters share emerging insights on how the next generation will handle the profound issues facing Christians within the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement in the 21st century. For example, one portion covers the topic of the 21st century renewal while another discusses how we can protect our Charismatic distinctive. Another portion will highlight Charismatic adaptations for reaching this present age, discussing issues of social and economic justice, prosperity and suffering, challenges to urban ministry, the future of the next generation, Oneness Pentecostalism, and missiological aims in North America.
