We are excited to announce details for the Second Kingdom Congress(register below)! Please join us on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at Renton Technical College, where we will continue the historic work we began last month to unite the body of Christ for the glory of King Jesus and the work of transformation in Washington State.
At the First Kingdom Congress, held on August 22nd at Sonrise Christian Center, more than 150 leaders from government, business, education, ministry, and other spheres gathered to exalt the name of Jesus over our state and issue a response to the Goliath-sized challenges of our day. Is there not a cause?!
Together, we made significant strides in the effort to:

From Inspiration to Activation
At the founding of our nation, the First Continental Congress served to inspire the colonists to action, but it wasn't until the Second Continental Congress that the Patriots began operating in a united, coordinated effort. Key delegates such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson who were not present at the first congress also joined the cause at that time.
On October 4, 2014 at the Second Kingdom Congress, we will...
Thank you to those of you who were able to join us at the First Kingdom Congress last Friday evening in Everett. What a time we had! More than 150 leaders from government, business, education, ministry, and other spheres gathered to exalt King Jesus over our state and issue a response to the Goliath-sized challenges of our day. Is there not a cause?!
The vision presented at the First Kingdom Congress was one of corporate unity and projected power in the body of Christ. The consensus of those that gathered was, "Why not us, and why not now?" We are on the cusp of a historic new work of cooperation and unity in the Church of Washington State, one that will see the elders return to the gates of our cities, and the watch of the Lord establish a wall of prayer around the state.
For those of you who were not able to come, we invite you to join us on October 3, 2014 for the Second Kingdom Congress, where we will continue to unfold the plan for 1Church1Day (www.1church1day.org), the strategy for linking the body in a continual prayer watch for our state and gathering leaders from each of the seven spheres of society into strategic councils. These two efforts, combined with the communication plan that will link them, will provide valuable spiritual and natural intelligence for how to position the Church for
transformation in our state.
Between now and the Second Kingdom Congress, we also invite you to learn more about the vision at http://www.1church1day.org/and sign up there for the 1Church1Day mailing list to receive updates, articles, and information about upcoming training for the work we'll be doing together.
Ten years ago, I was working in the office of Apostle John Kelly in Texas. It was September of 2004, and I traveled with Apostle Kelly to Spain to assist as a translator and administrative assistant for meetings with Spain’s top apostolic leaders. The purpose was to assist them in determining and
mobilizing the Lord’s strategy for advancing the Kingdom of God in their nation.
The timing of this gathering was strategically planned on the heels of a major worship and prayer event occurring in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, a top pilgrimage site for Catholics all over Europe. This location had been identified as a stronghold of the Queen of Heaven over Spain, affecting much of Europe. Doris and Peter Wagner, as well as Chuck Pierce, called upon prayer leaders and worshippers of Jesus from around the world to gather at Santiago de Compostela to exalt the name of the Lord, war against the stronghold of the Queen of Heaven there, and see Spain step into her kingdom destiny—a destiny that would have far reaching effects on all of Europe (see more
God had given John Kelly a mandate to follow on the heels of this event with an activation of Spain’s apostolic leaders in order to capitalize on the gains in the Spirit achieved through prayer efforts. Once in Spain, I was privileged to sit in on meetings both public and private meetings with these servant leaders who God had called to influence the destiny of a nation. I witnessed as they took counsel together about the Lord’s plans for Spain and what He would have them to do to join Him in His work.
The connecting of the body is not overly complicated, but there are certain things it requires. It requires prayer. It requires participation from key leaders. It requires finances to fund key administrative components. It requires a commitment to communicate.
As the meetings went on, however, I became a little discouraged. Although these apostles had no doubt been called and commissioned by the Lord to impact their nation, although they possessed a desire to work together, and although they were full of vision and carried an anointing to bring change, there was no infrastructure for administrating their corporate goals. Questions emerged about whose office would oversee communications. How would planning and logistics for joint efforts be approached? How would the budget for their
corporate vision be handled? Here was a people who knew they should work together, who were receiving prophetic direction for working together, who wanted to work together—but the critical components of communication and administration were lacking.
Rep Matt Shea
I met Representative Matt Shea in Spokane WA in 2010 while I was mobilizing the Church in that region through Operation Rolling Thunder. I liked Matt right away. He is an army officer, a combat veteran, an attorney and a Christian. I like all that, but what I truly like is that Matt entered the political arena to serve. He did not check his morals and convictions at the door of political expediency. From my observation, truth is something that is important to him and he is not afraid to stand up with boldness and courage to fight for the truth.
I remember the oath I took to defend the constitution of these United States and from watching him over the last three years, I'd say he remembered that oath too. It also appears like he has actually read it and is defending it rather than undermining it and violating it for political expediency. I appreciate the moral conviction and courage he has been demonstrating. Now, I'd like to share with you some sage advice he just offered in his recent blog
Heist Turns Self In
Carl and Brenda Krames have been overseeing the ORT strategy in Gainesville since 2009. Last year they began to form the government council in their Transformation Task Force by reaching out to law enforcement in their city and county. One of the prayer targets was cold cases.
In March I reported in the following article "Gainesville FL - ORT Strategy the Police Chief & Decreasing Crime!" the long term effects of concentrated prayer on crime. One month later I reported in "Strategic Prayer Breaks Cold Case Wide-open - Serial Murderer Apprehended" how they played a role in the case of a serial killer.
On May 3, 2013 a fugitive who had been on the run for 11 years happened to turn herself into authorities here in their county. Click here for Long-missing Pennsylvania mom surrenders in Gainesville.
Why did this fugitive just happen to turn herself in here? Well, we really don't know. But, I can't help but think their targeted prayers requested by law enforcement officials on cold cases had something to do with it.
This is the fruit of continual prayer inviting God's abiding presence.
Attention Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle
Two days ago I received a call from a prophet (seer) I know. I discovered Tim McClellan 7 years ago through Operation Rolling Thunder. He has a well developed gift and he has submitted words for over the last 7 years and I (we) have found them to be accurate. He is also a man of character and submitted to one of my sons in the Lord (Jason Hubbard).
Tim reported that he had two dreams on April 17, 2013
He saw jet trails (contrails) flying from South America (southern portion of the continent) over the Pacific Ocean then it turned right, split in two and one went to Los Angeles and the other to San Francisco. He went back to sleep and saw the same thing going into Seattle.
The word he got was that judgment was coming to these cities and he was to sound the alarm and mobilize the Church to pray. We are to pray like Jeremiah and Amos prayed asking the Lord to relent.
1 Corinthians 14:29 says let the prophets speak two or three and let the others judge. In keeping with the mandate we've received from the Lord I have begun to form a prophets council made up of proven prophets we work with across the nation. In collaboration with other apostles and teachers we will use the Word of God and our discernment to decide if it is from the Lord and if so, what action is required.
Carl & Brenda Krames - Gainesville FL
Carl and Brenda Krames began working with us using the Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT) strategy (click here) in Gainesville FL and on the University of Florida campus. They've been focusing on the 24/7 prayer portion of the strategy.
About a year ago they asked us to begin to pray for them about forming the strategic councils which are part of the ORT strategy. They started a government council by facilitating a meeting with pastors and local law enforcement (police chief & sheriff).
I remember them asking us to join with them to pray. One of the first requests for prayer was regarding cold cases. Yesterday they reported how that law enforcement in their county was credited with solving a 30 year old case which led to the capture of a serial murder. Click here for Local records chief hailed for helping crack a nationwide cold case. Thank you Lord!
That my friends is a testimony that illustrates what Christ can do when God's people step out in love with God's wisdom to serve their community.
Carl and Brenda Krames (click here for Prepare for Transformation ) are a kingdom minded couple; business owners, active in their local church (Victory Church), help oversee a University of FL campus ministry and active serving churches in the greater Gainesville FL area. They have used the Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT) strategy effectively to unite the church to pray strategically throughout the year.
Following the ORT strategy Carl and Brenda initiated contact with the police chief and facilitated a meeting with local pastors to discover how the Church in Gainesville could serve their community last June. As I recall one of the first requests had to do with praying for unsolved cases. Within two weeks Carl called me to tell me how they just got a lead in a 20 year old cold case.
Prayer when combined with faith in action is powerful.
Yesterday Carl called to report about their last meeting with the police chief (represents the kind of people we look to sit on a government council in ORT. He is like one of the elders in a city). In the last 6 months of 2012 crime was down 5%. He (they) were happy with those results. However, they were cautiously ecstatic about the first 2.5 months of 2013. Crime was down 24.5% compared to this time last year. THAT'S AWESOME!
This illustrates the beauty of the ORT strategy. It is a LONG TERM STRATEGY MADE UP OF A SERIES OF EVENTS that empower the Church to occupy the mountain of the Lord's house of prayer for all nations. It provides a way for the church in a city made up of many local congregations to invite God's abiding presence 24/7/365. God's presence combined with an invitation from the appropriate authorities changes everything as it brings God's power to bear on the challenges of society.
Everyone is blessed and served when crime decreases! What is crime (murder, theft, rape, etc.) but a measure of sin. I pray God would inspire you to serve your community like the Krames are. Operation Rolling Thunder can serve you just like it is serving them! Click here for more information.
The bishop for KLI in Pakistan, our dear Brother Shahbaz, requested that I share a word with their leaders (860+ have been trained since 2008) and those who have served as CONECTers through Operation Rolling Thunder (5 city prayer centers, 22 churches and 3 church plants underway). These minister in the midst of terrible persecution and yet they press on setting a marvelous example of courage anchored in love exercising faith.
As I prayed about his request I've received revelation about what is on our Father's heart I began to write as I sensed the anointing of the Lord. This is what the Lord showed me and it goes far beyond Kingdom League International in Pakistan. This is for every one who is part of KLI or who is passionate about seeing our Lord Jesus Christs' kingdom come and will be done on earth as it is in heaven. The Lord says;
We are in a time of deep darkness
Isaiah 60:2 - For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
