Spontaneous Expression Of Creative Arts, Gifts And Talents

History has proven that culture is defined and influenced by the music, art, and literature of the era. The arts and entertainment of the historical period shape the atmosphere of a nation. Liberal arts college students study themes, context and stylistic ideas of the influential voices for each of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20th century historical periods. Transitioning from the 20th century into the 21st century, media would be added to the list of these culturally defining influences.

We are currently living in an historical period in which the sexual revolution of the 1960’s has contributed much to a culture of declining morality. We are now immersed in a culture of self-centeredness, self-gratification, and destruction. Therefore, it is imperative for us to begin nurturing a Kingdom generation to paint and sculpt life-producing masterpieces and works of art with the eyes of their spirits, revealing to the world the glory of God, the beauty of His Kingdom, and the eternal life He pours outs to all who seek Him. It’s time to encourage this generation to dance unabandonly before the Lover of their souls (2 Samuel 6:14). This is the generation who is to write life-giving songs, poems and stories, and create movies, films, plays, etc., filled with the compassion, love, mercy and justice of the Father. This is the hour to bind, break off and remove the strongholds of death over cities, states and nations through ways that are higher than our ways. We need the revelation of Heaven on behalf of the unborn, the children, the youth, the fatherless, the poor, the needy, the lost, the family, and the Kingdom of Heaven. Art and entertainment forms expressing love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and life-giving beauty need to reach the masses.

We must focus on Jesus and receive His Kingdom strategies to raise up a generation who seeks to live the life they’ve been given with Kingdom love, Kingdom purpose, Kingdom identity, and Kingdom creativity. We must begin to invade the major sectors of our society with Kingdom life (government, media, education, business, religion, arts and entertainment, and the family). These sectors have been given over to a culture of death for far too long. We must turn our focus toward training up a generation of politicians, journalists, businessmen and women, and educators who possess integrity and moral character flowing from within the Kingdom life of their inner being. The people who know their God can be strong and do mighty exploits (Daniel 11:32). We can transform our society through Kingdom ways and thoughts that are higher than the world’s ways and thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). We don’t have to understand how or why. It is our call to believe, trust and put action to persevering faith (Hebrews 11:1-6).

Transformation to abundant life-producing culture can be done through instruction and impartation of an understanding of God as a loving Father and Creator, and through a revelation of ourselves as His gifts and gift carriers. We are creative spiritual beings who contain the capacity to hear, see, and release the frequencies of Heaven here on Earth because of all that Christ accomplished on our behalf. God sings over us (Zephaniah 3:17), Jesus sings over us (Hebrews 2:12), and Holy Spirit sings over us (Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16). He’s looking for a generation to sing through.

As the Body of Christ positions itself (purposes frequent times of humble worship, adoration, thanksgiving, praise, and listening individually and corporately), the Father will sing and speak revelation over and through His children in all of the varying creative art forms, as we focus on seeking and listening. The fruit of a personal and on-going relationship with the Lord will become the expression of what Heaven is revealing through individual gifts within.

Hearing And Seeing The Frequencies Of Heaven On Earth

Through the frequencies of His voice, the Lord spoke creation into existence (Genesis 1-2 and John 1:1-5). Man’s ability to hear and see sound and light frequencies in the natural realm is limited. Because we are created eternal spiritual beings who carry creative giftings, we need to apprehend the power of the shed blood of Christ, the power of Holy Spirit, and the practice of hearing and seeing with our spiritual eyes and ears in our spiritual minds and hearts. This ability continues to increase as we align ourselves in Christ. The anointing of Christ in us empowers us to more fully and creatively express His Kingdom come and His will be done (Isaiah 11:2, Revelations 3: 1, and 4:5) on the Earth as it is in Heaven.

The power of sound, color, and words in the spiritual realm encompasses far more than we can comprehend with our natural minds, yet it is important to understand spiritually. The treasure in Jesus contains the supernatural power of Heaven to change the spiritual atmosphere in our environments, which then manifests and transforms our natural environments. Jesus Himself, in Revelations 4:1, invites us to “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” We are invited to enter the throne room to see and hear the things Jesus Himself desires to show us. In that place we can be His vessel to bring the glorious things He reveals to us in sight and in sound to the natural realm; to manifest on Earth.

Spontaneous worship and psalming (prophetic worship. soaking and intercessory music), as an example, involves becoming a vessel the Lord can minister through musically (technical skill level), artistically (musicianship), and spiritually (ability to hear, discern and obey) to accomplish manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven in the Earth. Through Jesus Christ we are to carry the fruit of joy, healing, freedom, deliverance, restoration, and all of the abundance of Heaven available to us here and now.

Meditate on the following truths. Our Heavenly Father doesn’t ask us to understand it all, but rather to believe and receive all that the life, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ, accomplished on our behalf. He then asks us to seek Him, His righteousness, and His Kingdom as we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit within us to accomplish the very things He has called, purposed, gifted, and equipped each of us to do as citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven on the Earth.

Luke 4:17-21 (NLT)
17 The scroll of Isaiah the prophet was handed to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where this was written: 18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, 19 and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.” 20 He rolled up the scroll, handed it back to the attendant, and sat down. All eyes in the synagogue looked at him intently. 21Then he began to speak to them. “The Scripture you’ve just heard has been fulfilled this very day!”

John 14:12 (NLT)
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.”

Isaiah 55:9 (NLT)
“For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
