Supernatural Architecture

As we approach the 21st Century, it behooves us as ministers of Christ to gaze again on the ministry of Jesus. In recent reflection, there are many things in Christ’s ministry to hurting humanity which are noteworthy, too many to discuss here. However, in all His greatness, one dimension is often overlooked, especially by the evangelical and the charismatic ministers.

Scripture reveals that Jesus only did what His Father told him to do, and that He be about doing good (God things), healing all oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him (Immanuel). In recognizing that Jesus acted on the Father’s desire, doing the work He was called to do, we see an influential intent of immense importance.

Supernatural Architecture! As we approach the 21st Century, it behooves us as ministers of Christ to gaze again on the ministry of Jesus. In recent reflection, there are many things in Christ's ministry to hurting humanity which are noteworthy, too many to discuss here. However, in all His greatness, one dimension is often overlooked, especially by the evangelical and the charismatic ministers.

Scripture reveals that Jesus only did what His Father told him to do and that He be about doing good (God things), healing all oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him (Immanuel). In recognizing that Jesus acted on the Father's desire, doing the work He was called to do, we see an influential intent of immense importance.

For thirty years I have been a professor of church growth.  One of my tasks has been to undertake the necessary research to answer the following four questions:

Why does the blessing of God rest where it does?

More on Supernatural Architecture

As we enter this study on Supernatural Architecture we see that Scripture reveals that Jesus only did what His Father told him to do...  and that He be about doing good (God things), healing all oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him (Immanuel). In recognizing that Jesus acted on the Father's desire, doing the work He was called to do, we see an influential intent of immense importance.

For thirty years I have been a professor of church growth.  One of my tasks has been to undertake the necessary research to answer the following four questions:

  1. Why does the blessing of God rest where it does?
  2. Since it is obvious that not all churches are equal, why is it that at certain times and in certain places some churches seem to be more blessed than others?
  3. Can any pattern of divine blessing on churches be discerned?
  4. If so, what are the salient characteristics of unusually blessed churches?

It has now become clear that at this particular point of history, the unusual blessing of God is resting on what I like to call churches of “The New Apostolic Reformation.”  This does not mean that God is not blessing some other churches as well.  But it does derive from the fact that in virtually every part of the world the fastest growing group of churches are New Apostolic Churches.

Not everybody is aware that these churches even exist.  Many who do realize it has discovered no way to infiltrate and understand the New Apostolic Churches.  But my friend, Stan DeKoven is one who does.  As the President of Vision International University, he has been deeply involved in training cutting-edge leadership for New Apostolic Churches.

Stan's fingerprints are all over these churches!

Supernatural Architecture is a book that has addressed the questions relating to the pattern of today's divine blessing, and the salient characteristics of the blessed churches.  Stan accurately sees that the Church of the 21st Century will be the Church that exhibits these characteristics.

But he goes beyond that assessment.

Dr. DeKoven probes the reasons why New Apostolic Churches are such a driving force for the Kingdom, showing through careful research that they are, from their roots up, biblical churches.  They adhere to the fundamental patterns established by God in the Old Testament and in the intertestamental period, and they also have been moulded by the governmental pattern taught by Jesus and practised by the apostles.

All this is to say that the book you have in your hands can be regarded as a biblical theology of the New Apostolic Reformation.  It goes hand in hand with other books describing this dynamic movement from empirical, sociological or methodological perspectives.  I will be recommending Stan DeKoven's book to my students because I know it will build their confidence that the ways that they have come to understand as the Church are ways near to the heart of God.

As you read Supernatural Architecture you will grow in your gratitude to God for the privilege of living in a generation to which God has given so much exciting revelation about the ways and means of advancing His Kingdom.

And He is the Head of the body, the church, who is the Beginning, the First-born from the dead, that He may be pre-eminent in all things. For it pleased the Father that in Him all fullness should dwell. And through Him having made peace through the blood of His cross, it pleased the Father to reconcile all things to Himself through Him, whether the things on earth or the things in Heaven.  (Col 1:18-20)
