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.
