Pastors Mark & Nancy Hosted NDP in Renton
May 2nd was the National Day of Prayer. It was hosted by two KLI pastors; Mark and Nancy Moore. They also serve as the CONECTers for Operation Rolling Thunder in Renton/Kent south King County. This is also the first day of Phase 1 of the Operation Rolling Thunder Strategy.
Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT) is a strategy that gets one church to take one day of 24/7 prayer each month. Once we get 31 churches in a city working together we have our city covered with 24/7 prayer all year long. The effect of God's abiding presence in a city is incredible (click here). KLI has committed to taking the 1st day of every month and we've been joined by 4 other churches so far (click here).
Today, Pastors Gary and Tandi are leading the prayer this day as Celebration

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.
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.
Light of the World Prayer Center - Bellingham WA
I started to write an email to all those leaders who have worked with me using Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT) to mobilize and connect the Church in their city, region, state or nation. The event that prompted this communication was an invitation from Jason Hubbard. He is the founder of Light of the World Prayer Center which was the first of 5 city prayer centers launched during the first three months of ORT in 2008. Jason asked me to come and join them today (12-12-12) at a dedication service at LOWPC. It caused me to take a moment, step back and consider where ORT began and how far it has come.
It began as a word God gave me which I spoke to three leaders in December 2004. It is recorded in my book (click here for the ORT book). I remembered the first time I met Jason. He was serving as an associate pastor of a local church. As he began using the strategy to mobilize and connect the churches in his area God began to speak, move and birth. It led to the launch of five city prayer centers on three continents in the first three months of ORT. Light of the World Prayer Center was the first of the five.
Today LOWPC has become a vibrant ministry affecting powerful change in their community and is one of the flagships illustrating the beauty of God's wisdom displayed through ORT as it establishes 24/7 prayer while gathering the elders at the gates of the city. They have 9 strategic (apostolic) councils combined with 32 churches working together monthly to raise up a canopy of 24/7 prayer over their city. What began as a city prayer center is turning into one of many Apostolic Resource Centers (ARC).
I just returned from Kansas where I shared the revelation the Lord gave about "how to chart your course in this new era." There were two key revelations the Lord shared within that message.
First, the results of this last election make it clear that the moral compass of the Church has deviated away from the truth (click here for the report from Life News) so far that a large segment of the Church chose to vote for candidates that advocated the murder of unborn children. They obviously don't realize the consequences for the nation that sheds innocent blood (Lev. 18) or introduces legislation that destroys the family while promoting sexually deviate behavior that ultimately hurts people. The Bible teaches us about eternal laws that are in place that work like the law of gravity. Gravity works whether in believe in it or not. Just go jump off a cliff and you'll see what I mean. There are eternal laws that work the same way. Our nation is reaping the consequences of the choices we are making as a people. Compassion dictates that we desperately need our moral compass adjusted so that we can speak the truth in love.
Second, the Lord is raising the Papa Flag. A Papa Flag is raised when a ship in port is recalling all sailors to the ship. The Lord has raised the Papa Flag because He is recalling all saints to His "apostle ship."
There is a principle in God's word: first the natural and then the spiritual (1 Cor. 15:26). Here is the revelation that Lord revealed to me about how the natural compass relates to our moral compass.
A compass is used with a map to indicate direction. It is a critical piece of equipment in navigation. If the compass is in error then you will end up in a different place that you originally planned. The key is, does the compass point to magnetic north or does it point to true north?
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. NKJV
On November 14th I sent out a newsletter titled "Charting the Course for Your Destiny in this New Era." On the same day Charisma posted an article from Chuck Pierce titled "The Election Has Brought a New Era." Needless to say "era" caught my attention.
Era means a period of time marked by a distinctive character or a period of time to which anything belongs or is assigned.
Think about Psalm 139:16! These days were made for us. We were made for these days. Out of all eternity God could have chosen you and I to live at anytime but He chose now! Great trials present great opportunity.
Joel 2 describes a people who come forth upon this earth whom the world has never seen and it occurs during "the day of the Lord." It is a day of darkness and gloominess but in that context or horrible times a people come "great and strong like of whom has never been." A fire devours before them and behind them a flame burns. They are encompassed by God's presence as scripture declares God is a consuming fire. This is the army of the Lord. Verse five says they are a "strong people set in battle array." It says "The Lord gives voice before His army for His camp is very great; for strong is the one who executes His word."
I have to confess, while I was disappointed by these elections, I am very excited about what Christ is doing. These days were made for you and I. As I read Chuck's article I got even more excited because so much of what he said is so similar to what the Lord showed me. I'll highlight a few things Chuck said and summarize it with what the Lord showed me was the key for an overcomer in these times.
The goal of my article is to encourage the church, leaders, ministers, and CONECTers who serve with me. I want them to see how we are playing a part in bringing these prophetic declarations into reality.
This will be the most important election in history to date. At stake is the institution of marriage defined by God and NOT civil government is trying to be overturned by a small minority (homosexual, bisexual, etc) who seek to justify perverted sexual behavior by changing the definition of marriage. My friends the family is at the core of society. If the family breaks down society will break down. When laws are passed that violate God's word these laws and policies invite eternal laws to go to work. Laws which will end up causing the land to ultimately cause a people to lose their nation (see Leviticus 18).
There are also issues of life, truth, debt, and more laws which violate God's word. All of these things invite judgment which harm a people and their land.
Sadly Many Called Christians Act Like They Don't Have a Conscience
We all espouse vote according to your conscience. Sadly it is clear that many in Christendom act like they don't have a conscience or they are ignorant. That should not surprise us as 1 Timothy 4:1-3 says "Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron," NKJV
How do I vote and use the privilege afforded to me in my nation? How do I use my influence? How do I make decisions? Well I can tell you this I don't care about a candidate's color, race, party or any other external issue as much as I care about what the Bible says. I vote the Bible.

Here are some of the core issues and what the Bible teaches.
September 4th was a historic day for us. We presented the KLI charter to a small team of people we've invited to help us establish an ARC (apostolic resource center). On September the 9th we'll host our first Sunday meeting. This day was 20 years in the making. Here is a glimpse into this history that we see unfolding.
May 28, 1995 - Bill Johnson (prophet from Christian International) prophesies "you are training for kingdom ministry and God has got you in a process of development sort of like the space shuttle." He went on to describe in detail how its prepared and then once all is fitted together it is moved "very slowly to the launch pad." He went on to say "your overall destiny is leadership, vision holder, touching others, part of a ministry staff that will be a covering and a support to you... it is a place to launch from... I mean it is the two of you. You two are truly a team ministry..."
February 26, 1996 - Unknown prophet - This was the vision "stage 1 hot air balloon carried by the wind of the spirit. Stage 2 - blast off Space Shuttle Challenger!!! Stage 3 - Communications satellite - worldwide vision fulfilled. Prayer general.... you will be a prayer strategist.
October 10, 1996 - Bill Johnson - "You guys are going to be senior leaders in the house of the Lord.... God has got a people and a church planting that you are going to do. You are going to have the responsibility for the whole ship.... watch for the people you are destined to be with."
On February 24, 2011 I called a summit where I presented what the Lord showed me about an ARC. This led to the launch of KLI. This history is documented in detail elsewhere. On the first day of this summit the Space Shuttle Discovery launched for its last trip to space. On the last day of the summit at 11:15am the leaders that gathered together in this summit set Brenda and I in the middle of the room and began to prophesy that it was time to launch this "apostle-ship." At the exact time our prayer began the Space Shuttle Discovery docked with the "International Space Station."
These prophetic words led to the establishment of KLI in 2011. This led to a local church plant on September 4, 2012 which is the Genesis of the base of operations we need to build in order to demonstrate all the Lord showed me to do. It is an Apostolic Resource Center; an ARC. It is based upon an ancient pattern (wineskin) that is just new to us. It is a local church plant that will connect with the Church in a city and a region.
The Ark in Solomon's Temple & Tabernacle of David
As a king, David had responsibility for how all of the spheres of society connected and interacted. I believe the seven mountain concept is like a modern day parable. It helps us to understand an aspect or a certain view of the kingdom God wants His people to establish.
The first decision King David made to begin to expand the kingdom was to set up a tent on Mount Zion and he established an administration of teams to ensure that God’s abiding presence was always welcome in his city. After this was established we see all through 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles that David’s armies saw victory after victory. They acquired spoil from these victories.
It is important to understand that King David was also a skillful general. He had learned the art of war. This skill is also an aspect of the apostolic gift. Here are a couple of excerpts from Developing Apostolic Strategy that will shed some light on this aspect of the apostolic gift.
