People love individual legacy, but God loves generational legacy. People want everything to happen in their lifetime, but God looks down through many lifetimes when He makes something happen. Once we are able to see generationally, then we will comprehend things biblically. Generational legacy is biblical theology. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, generational legacy.
The church has preached individual legacy, so we think everything is about us, going to happen to us, for us and in us. Our imagery is a motorcycle theology, but God has a train theology. We may see things differently, based on the car we are in on the train, but we need the voice of those who are older than us and younger than us, because they see things differently than us. If we cut off the older generation as though they have no value to add because we are so “advanced”, we miss what they see from their car on the train. God is restoring generational legacy to the church and with this restoration will come a renovation of our theology.
There is always a why behind the what that God is doing. We are living in a day in which a major renovation is taking place in the nations. If we hang onto our opinions, our theology, our thoughts, as though we have nothing else to learn, we are going to miss what God is doing in our generation. This goes for every age group.
We are living in an appointed time moment with God, this is His doing, HIs timing, His plan. Psalm 102:13 says it best, “You will arise and have compassion on Zion; For it is time to be gracious to her, For the appointed time has come.” Why is God doing this now? “So the nations will fear the name of the LORD And all the kings of the earth Your glory.” (Psalm 102:15). And the the result will be, generational legacy. “This will be written for the generation to come, That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.” (Psalm 102:18). God is doing something generationally not just individually.
