The purpose of this book is to ignite the potential inside of you! Together we will discover the untapped genius inside your person-hood. I am charged by God to lead you down the road of discovering the brilliance of His Glory deposited in you from the foundation of the world. Before you showed up on the map of human time, and while you were in the mind of God He made a plan for your life, a plan to reveal through you the unsearchable richness of His own Glory. Imagine that God Himself has placed inside of you a hidden treasure and that the whole of the universe is waiting with baited breath for the revelation of the mystery of your purpose. On my 25th birthday a good friend wrote in a card this quote, “You are more than what you have become;” this one phrase launched a quest in me to discover the more. It is my prayer that this book will birth the same drive in you to discover the more. The place of maximum potential is yet untapped and all of nature is groaning for you to be revealed. Being the righteousness of God in the earth is not just a charismatic platitude, it is the reality and right of kingdom citizenship.

One snowy night two years ago this book began and stopped. The story of writing this book is one that could make a book by itself. The journey of writing this book has been the process of articulating my heart for a generation. A brilliant author in his own right and my personal travel assistant, J.E. Keels, was with me the snowy night this book began and embodies why I do what I do, so I dedicate this book to him and his generation. We are cruising now!

What you will mentally ingest in this present treatise is nothing short of literary genius; a very accurate example of the content of the context. Reading through the rough draft of the manuscript, I was mesmerized by the skill of a knowledgeable and inspired writer. Apostle Donalson displays garnered facts and gracious finesse as he meanders through the discourse of Unlocking the Genius Within.

Having been acquainted with the Apostle for some time now, I am impressed not only with his tremendous growth in ministry and person; but also inundated by his passionate desire to empower others toward greatness. He doesn’t merely flaunt, but rather shares his learning. It is obvious that it is not just book learning, but heart yearning, which drives his impartation.

As you open yourself, not only to the information, but the conviction infused into these words, you will find yourself incited as well as enlightened. You won’t just have knowledge, but motivation to be better. You will have gained another key to the Kingdom of God, which unlocks a treasure trove of blessing and favor far beyond human imagination. There is no way to adequately conceive or predict the enormous benefit that awaits you once you unlock the genius within.

Just to offer you a glimpse through a glass darkly, as it is herein presented; the genius within you is not your own. It is the genius of God. Humanity is but a kaleidoscope of the genius and glory of God, manifesting in myriad forms and expressions. We are entrusted with a great and priceless treasure, which we are obligated to discover and responsibly manage.

Your personal plight might be fraught with hindrances and hurdles, precluding the discovery of the genius within. Nevertheless, Apostle Donalson’s discourse will competently navigate you to your hidden treasure. Then provide you with the necessary tools to successfully employ your find. It will ultimately result in the advancement of mankind, personal gain, praise toward God and the further establishing of the Kingdom in the earth.

Get ready. I hear the jingling of keys. You will soon be Unlocking the Genius Within…



Genius is described as a single strongly marked capacity or aptitude, extraordinary intellectual power especially as manifested in creative activity, a person endowed with transcendent mental superiority; especially: a person with a very high intelligence quotient.¹ An individual who successfully applies a previously unknown technique or who masters or personalizes a particular technique is said to be a genius. I believe that every member of the Body of Christ has within them the ability to become this description. Not only does each of us have the potential to become the manifestation of this description, but also it is our design and destiny to be genius so that humanity will see the Glory of our God. I will admit right out the gate that I believe true genius is connected to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If you are reading this book and have not come to an understanding of His Lordship, please don’t tune out yet I believe this book is for you and will connect the dots to unlocking your true genius.

Relationship with Christ is not an external one that happens to you, rather receiving Christ as Lord means that He is actually dwelling in you occupying your leb (Greek) which is your inner man, mind, will, heart, or understanding.² I teach at my home church that it is the responsibility of every believer to infiltrate the marketplace with the counterculture of the Kingdom. It means that the job of the Christian to bring the mind of God into the earth realm for the purpose of pointing those who do not know God to a knowledge of His Lordship.

When God separated light from darkness in creation He was actually establishing two kingdoms that rule over all kingdoms in the earth realm. When we receive Christ as our personal Savior, He transfers us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light; therefore our assignment is to expose the darkness by accurately reflecting the light. So the Scripture rightly declares: In the same manner let your light shine before men in order that they may see your good works and in order that they may glorify your Father who is in heaven.³

Our genius is the ability to answer the problems of the kingdom of darkness with the wisdom of the kingdom of light. Daniel and his three friends where absolutely brilliant at navigating the marketplace of their time and influencing the world by their connection to the most influential people in the world; they left for us a blueprint of genius. When they found themselves in Babylonian captivity, these mighty men of God showed great genius in displaying the wisdom, power and might of God in the earth. They understood through prayer and adherence to the mores of the kingdom of God, how to provide the answers to the problems of the system they found themselves having to function in. As the king began to recognize that they were ten times better than all their peers, they were elevated in the government of an unholy nation.

What genius to bring the strategy of Israel inside the government of Babylon. By refusing to become indoctrinated with the thought process and the spirit of Babylon, they were able to approach the problem of Babylon with the mindset of the heavens. It was some thread of genius in Israel and particularly in Daniel and his friends that was both useful and attractive to the Babylonians and there king; something that marked the difference from greatness to genius. Daniel 1:3 says, "Then the king instructed Ashpenaz, the master of his eunuchs, to bring some of the children of Israel and some of the king’s descendants and some of the nobles, four young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans."⁴ While Babylon was truly great in their own right the genius of Israel was attractive
