SID:  We were talking earlier about the kingdom culture and how it affects family. But this is amazing. You had some foster kids that many have dubbed the four-week miracle. Tell me about that.

BILL:  Yeah. We had two boys come to us. Their mother killed herself, I don’t remember how long before we got them. And then the father had him by himself for a season, and then he killed himself. There was a lot of abuse. You can imagine the condition that they were in emotionally and mentally. There was five brothers. We got two of them. And so we brought them into our home. The first meal, they grabbed all the food on the table, pulled it to themselves, because they had had to fight for everything. And so we assured them that, “Listen, there’ll be food here tomorrow. There will always be enough.” And over the next 24 hours or so they just began to sort that out and get healed up. Well, just a simple love and affirmation, care for them, within four weeks, it may have been three, but within four weeks, their counselor, their psychiatrist, whoever was working with them, said they didn’t need to come in anymore. So they had to come in to such a place of unusual peace in a middle of trauma that they didn’t need professional help anymore.

SID:  I have to believe when a family operates in this love and kingdom culture, it permeates the whole home or anyone that comes into the home.

BILL:  Absolutely. Absolutely right.

SID:  I promised you that he had a second life-changing revelation we’ve never shared on this show. And it actually has to do with a revelation from a scripture. Tell me about that.

BILL:  The one encounter was a power encounter. This one was revelatory. And that seems to be the ways that God moves on us often. And some people want the physical touch when God is actually speaking to their heart and mind about perception. I was reading Isaiah 60, verse 1, “Arise, shine. For your light has come. The glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold darkness will cover the earth, deep darkness the people, but his light will appear upon you. His glory will be seen upon you. Kings will come to your light and nations to the brightness of your rising.” I was reading. That’s the first three verses. But I was reading through Isaiah. And you know what it’s like. It’s like when you read something and God just breathes on it, it just seems to leap off the page. Even though I couldn’t have explained it to anyone, I didn’t have the insight to explain, yet I knew that this was life to me. I could feel the breath of God on those verses, “Arise, shine.” So I took that verse. I shared it to our church on Sunday. I said, “I feel like this is a word for us right now,” and the same thing happened to the entire room. I shared it another meeting. Other leaders were there. They said, “God has been saying the same word for us, ‘Arise, shine. For your light has come.'” There’s a posture of responsibility in radiating the presence and glory of God that every believer is supposed to take. And in many ways it is by choice. We stand on purpose. We rise, and we shine. But what he said is we arise and shine because his light has come. Jesus is the light that came into the world, John chapter 1, enlightened every person. There’s not another light coming. So we know that by that context that this is a present day word that the people of God are to rise because the glory of God will be seen upon us. Many people wait to rise, if I can use that place of faith or place of confidence, many people wait to rise until that glory is manifested. He is saying, “You rise, and the glory will be seen.

Audience: [applause, cheers]

BILL:  I will answer your posture with heaven’s invasion. I’ll put my sign of presence upon you if you’ll take your right place.” And then he describes it as being at a time when deep darkness covers the earth. So there’s contrast. There’s difficulty, there’s challenges. But it’s in the midst of the difficulty that the people of God say, “Wait a minute, not on my shift. We’re not going to cower at the face of challenges. Instead we’re going to take our place.” The end result of that is nations come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising. There has to be something happening with us that would make us the group that people in the world would want to come to. It’s the come of the Gospel, the contrast with the go of the Gospel. I go to a garden to pick fruit. I go a stream to drink water. In the same way, the reality of people reigning in Christ, living victoriously in life, knowing how to manage their relationships or conflicts, their finances, all these things, position us into a place where the glory of God’s purposes, the beauty of his kingdom becomes visible. And that becomes the very thing that draws people into the kingdom.

SID:  But you know, the very first thing that is essential? This is what God’s word says in the original Greek, “This is eternal life, that you might have experiential knowledge of God.” I want you to make sure your sins are washed away and make sure that Jesus is living inside of you and make sure that you rise up to make him Lord. I want you to repeat this prayer after me, out loud. Studio audience, you at home, I want you to repeat this prayer and mean it to the best of your ability out loud. Dear God-
