Revelation’s Ultimate Purpose: Presenting Jesus to the World

The ultimate purpose of discerning revelation is presenting Jesus to the world. In other words, we let God’s Word become flesh in us so that others can experience Him.

One of joys in my life is the people I have the honor of working with. One of them is Jeffrey Thompson, the project manager for my ministry, God Encounters Ministries. Here, he tells about a revelatory experience he had with the Lord that expresses revelation’s ultimate purpose:

One day not long ago, I was given the opportunity to preach at the church where I serve part-time on the pastoral staff. After I brought the message at the worship service, I felt really good about it. It seemed to have been inspired both in content and delivery. So, I asked the Lord, “Lord, have You called me to preach?”

The Lord responded to me immediately in my spirit, saying, “No, I’ve called you to incarnate.”

He was realigning my priorities, reminding me that the endgame isn’t just the preaching or teaching or whatever—the endgame is the relationship with Jesus Christ, and the more completely I walk with Him, the more I incarnate Him. By “incarnate,” I mean He takes on flesh in me. I am called to bring His love and wisdom and peace and hope into the room with me so that people can see Him.

That says it well. Discerning—hearing, confirming and acting on prophetic revelation—is really about incarnation.

Not only is it about the historical incarnation of God the Son as a Jewish man named Jesus over 2,000 years ago, but also about Jesus’ incarnation in each of His followers, in you and in me.

Each one of us has been called to incarnate Him.
