David Newby wants to see God burst your bubble. The purpose of The Bubble Will Burst is to expose the “wood, hay and stubble” that has been built on the foundation of Jesus Christ, so believers can return to the kind of Spirit-led body ministry that God intends. Along the way, Newby slaughters “sacred cows” right and left.
Although God is directing other authors to identify pagan practices that have infiltrated the church, He’s using this Australian writer to warn about Old Covenant practices that have crept back in. Newby contends that the very clergy/laity distinction is largely to blame for pastor burn-out and for why revival dies.
The author believes that God wanted all of Israel to be a nation of priests, but that 11 of the 12 tribes forfeited their rights to the Levites, who performed most, if not all the work of ministry. Newby reminds us from I Peter 2:9 that under the New Covenant believers are “… a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation …” He goes on to say, “But like Israel we can disqualify ourselves from our calling through laziness, pleasure seeking, disobedience or the snares of ecclesiastical traditional thinking. This robs not only ourselves but others in the Church as we are prevented from fulfilling our priestly roles in our family, church and community.
