“MAKE IT PLAIN!”
“And the LORD answered me: Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2 ESV
Apostles should not strive to make things so deep that people ooh and aah, but then by the end of the message still can’t figure out what the preacher is preaching about in order to see how the message can change their lives.
Revelation + application = manifestation and transformation.
The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 3:8-9 (NIV) that he was given grace to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ – BUT to also MAKE PLAIN to everyone the administration (their fellowship or partnership) of this mystery which had been hidden for ages.
That’s a pretty big bill to fill – to make the revelation of the unsearchable riches of Christ PLAIN to everyone. But those with apostolic grace should be able to do just that.
It’s not about trying to impress people how “deep” you are, but about making the revelation of these mysteries PLAIN, in order that you may be established (Romans 16:25-27).
Perhaps we should go back to the “old school church” practice of shouting at the preacher during the sermon – MAKE IT PLAIN!!
