THESE ARE THE UNDERGIRDING PRINCIPLES OF THE HEART
1. Deep Heart Connection & Relationship with God:
God is a relational being who values our hearts and deeply desires to establish a relational connection with us. He is looking for open hearts to pour His love into.
2. The Great Value of Hearts:
Jesus is the ultimate apostolic heart prophet who calls us to a full-scale heart revolution by adopting His core value of becoming a people who truly value hearts.
3. Open Hearted Lifestyle:
The Father loves us and values our hearts so much that He sent Jesus to reach deep into our hearts with His healing and transformational love. He is teaching us how to live with a truly open heart.
4. Heaven Invades Earth Through Hearts:
To receive Jesus’ ministry of heaven invading earth we must learn how to open our hearts wide to the Father and become a people who truly live from the heart.
5. New Creation Miracle:
Jesus gives us a brand new heart and a brand new spirit and this new creation miracle is the foundation and cornerstone of the heart revolution.
6. The Call to Become Heart Prophets:
Jesus calls all of His followers to become heart prophets who embody the heart revolution message and who call others to embrace this glorious revolution.
The heart revolution is focused upon healing the brokenhearted and the transformation of the heart from the heart of an orphan to the heart of a son.
8. Healthy Self-love:
Heart prophets value their own hearts enough to invest into the healing of their own heart. Jesus said we are to love others as we love ourselves. Healthy self-love that results in the healing of our own heart becomes the foundation for truly loving and valuing others.
9. Loving & Valuing the Hearts of Others:
Heart prophets value other people’s hearts just as Jesus values our hearts. Authentic love places the ultimate value on our own heart and the hearts of others. This is what love looks like.
10. Building & Fighting for Heart Connection:
If we really value people’s hearts we will join the fight for other people’s hearts and fight to build strong heart connections of love, honour and trust.
11. Healing & Deliverance Ministry:
If we value people’s hearts we will embrace Jesus’ ministry of healing the brokenhearted and fight for people’s deliverance and the healing of their hearts.
12. The Priority of Connection:
Heart connections of genuine love for God and our brethren are the most important priorities in our lives. Without these love connections we are nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:2)
13. Trust & Love
A heart connection is a deep bond of relational trust and love that we have to fight to establish and to then fight to maintain in all of our relationships.
14. Family & Community:
Heart connections are established in the context of family, therefore heart prophets must fight to build communities that value a culture of love and trust.
15. Spirit of Adoption:
The family/community paradigm is the cultural context in which we receive the Spirit of adoption ministered by the Holy Spirit but mediated through family.
16. Worshipping Communities:
Building worshipping communities that powerfully express adoptive love and care for every heart ought to be our highest priority here on earth.
17. Growing into Mature Sons:
Communities that can faithfully express the adoptive love of the Father become the matrix of mature sonship. Mature sons become missional by nature because they are energized by the Spirit of adoption.
18. Many Sons to Glory:
The Father is bringing many sons to glory but we only come to the glory of full maturity in the context of a spiritual family where love and trust is fostered.
19. God Sends Sons:
God’s answer to every human problem is to send a son. Sending an orphan will not do. God’s agenda is always to send beloved sons into the crisis.
20. The Supernatural
The family of God becomes the matrix of the supernatural as beloved sons arise, empowered by the Father’s love to heal hearts, bodies and minds.
21. World Transformation Through the Father’s Love:
The radical apostolic Christianity of Paul and John expresses the fullness of Jesus’ mission to bring many sons to glory and to send forth these beloved sons of the kingdom into the world to transform the world through the Father’s love.
22. God’s Glory Rests on Hearts:
God’s glory rests on hearts that are pressing into deeper heart connection. This is the essence of Jesus’ prayer in John 17. He is pouring out His glory upon our hearts and drawing us into supernatural oneness with the Father so that the world may believe and know that the Father has sent His Son into the world.
These 22 sub-values undergird the fundamental call to truly love God and one another with all our heart
Jesus commissions His church to value hearts as much as He does. We are urged to “walk in love as Christ also has loved us.”
