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...
Revelation 12 describes how a war with Satan spilled from heaven on to earth. Satan in his fury and anger desiring to hurt who defeated him then went to deceive, destroy and to make war against people whom God loves. My friends, whether you like it or not, we are at war.
Today is July 4th, the day we celebrate our nation's independence from tyranny. The Declaration of Independence was signed today in 1776. It was the result of the work performed in the Second Congress. This Congress also authorized and sent George Washington to mobilize and organize an army to represent the newly formed government who represented the will of its people. It took a war to deliver a people from oppression. There were three types of people
We owe what our nation has enjoyed today, not to a majority but rather to a small group of patriots who risked their lives and fortunes for the sake of all. Many of these patriots were inspired by the greatest example of love ever set when Jesus choose to die upon the cross for the sake of all mankind. Jesus did this to give us the keys to victory in this heavenly conflict that spilled on to earth. The Bible says in,
I say that there are those who,
There is a tyranny facing our nation today that looms as large as Goliath did when he defied the armies of Israel. The answer is the same now as it was then; a David; actually a company of David's who will rise with courage and run to meet the giants of our day.
Our nation was founded by a people who sought freedom from a government who encroached first on their religious liberties and then spilled over into other areas. When the early colonist no longer found they could redress their issues with the king, they appealed to God and heaven. This cry was formalized in an ensign when George Washington commissioned the formation of a navy to assist his army in their cause.
The attacks levied today against the family, life, and now religious freedom are clear. The situation is no less dire than in the founding of our nation and the need to appeal to heaven is urgent. God looks for a people who will respond like David did when he cried "is there not a cause?" (1 Sam 17:29)
The "Appeal to Heaven" was accompanied by the formation of a congress. A congress by its very definition is a formal meeting or assembly of representatives who gather for the discussion, arrangement, or promotion of some matter of common interest. It is a meeting; an encounter. The First Continental Congress launched a process which led to the founding of these United States.
Calling Christian Leaders from all Seven Spheres of Society
With this in mind we are calling forth the First Kingdom Conference of Washington State. We seek Christian representatives from all seven spheres of society (church, business, government, media/entertainment, healthcare, and the family) who like David, will have the courage to appeal to heaven and then act upon heavens direction.
What do we expect from this First Kingdom Congress? Recognizing that the Church is the Lord's primary purveyor of His kingdom, we expect to start a process modeled after a pattern that King David established that will lead to the:
Dr. Dan Hammer and Tim Taylor would like to invite you to join us on August 22nd to launch a long term strategic process at:
History is in the hands of the intercessors. Throughout the ages fasting has been a powerful tool to intensify prayer. Prayer and fasting empowers a person to change their personal history and a people to change their national history. For example:
Jesus taught us to fast and pray too. He just admonished us not to do it as the hypocrites did. (Matt. 6:16-18).
The early Church also practiced regular fasting and prayer. The Apostle Paul when describing his ministry in 1 Corinthians 6:3-10 said in verse that he was involved in "watchings" and "fastings." Watching refers to abstaining from sleep and fasting refers to abstaining from food.
On January 2-8 our Church is entering into a 7 day fast to kick off the new year. We expect to change history by being one of those lights that shines in darkness in 2014. Click here for God's word about a light shined in darkness in 2014. Here are some practical guidelines and lessons learned about how to fast.
(CNN) -- Hold the obituary. Experts now think Comet ISON -- or at least part of it -- survived its close encounter with the sun.... Earlier Thursday, NASA scientists had pretty much declared ISON dead at the end of a Google Hangout to watch the comet swing by the sun. But professional and amateur astronomers were undeterred by the reports and kept analyzing NASA satellites. They found images that clearly show something emerging from the sun."
Two days ago I published "Thanksgiving - Hannakah & the ISON Comet on Nov 28." It noted that the occurence of Thanksgiving and Hannakah occuring on the same day will not happen again for another 70,000+ thousand years. Combine that with the ISON Comet passing near the sun on that same day and we find God speaking through a remarkable interalationship of signs in the heavens and on the earth. Two days ago I shared part of what I think God is saying.
What's God saying through all of this?
I submit, we have much to be thankful for IF we keep our focus on heaven. It's time to re-dedicate ourselves back to the Lord just like the Jews dedicated the temple back to the Lord a second time after the Maccabean revolt. It's time to let our lights so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Jesus taught us to pray kingdom come and will be done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN. I invite you to join me in dedicating ourselves to manifesting heaven on earth in a new and glorious way during this season of thanksgiving. - See more at: http://www.kingdomleague.org/3/post/2013/11/thanksgiving-hannakah-the-ison-comet-on-nov-28.html#sthash.mZOuwppN.dpuf
At first it was reported that the comet did not survive its brush with the sun. But now we find that it did.
What does this mean? I submit to you....
We Need to Buy a Clue!
America is embroiled in many public scandals today! The expose is growing. The Washington Post has consolidated some of these in "Mr. Obama and his scandals." It lists among other things how that the "Justice Department" leaks documents to attack a whistle blower who expose the "Fast and Furious" debacle, the IRS targeting conservative political and religious groups, the Justice Department violating the First Amendment snooping into Associated Press and Fox News reporters seeking to intimidate, the Benghazi atrocity which is worse than Watergate, and.... the list goes on.
I submit that this is the fruit of more than 50 years of a growing rejection of the Lord and His moral commands. In 1963 prayer was banned by our Supreme Court and one year later the court banned bible reading which was followed as school after school removed the 10 commandments.
President Harry S Truman popularized the saying "the buck stops here." This administration acts like the "buck stops there, and there and there..." anywhere but here. Blame shifting and avoiding responsibility seem to be the protocol of the day.
Here is a dollar for those who need to buy a clue! The rejection and erosion of our relationship with The Lord has undermined our moral fabric. No system, I repeat, NO SYSTEM can survive and function without character. The family unit can not survive. Capitalism will not work. A Justice Department run by people with no morals will not uphold laws. The IRS will not stay within the confines of the law when it is run by people with no internal moral boundaries. Here is another secret for those who believe socialism or communism is a better system. They won't work without moral boundaries either. What do you think led to the downfall of the Soviets?
Judgment began in the household of God as scandal after scandal has been revealed and I have not doubt it will continue as our Lord cleans house. But now this trend has spilled over into other spheres of society.
