Tony & Irene Fournier ordained as elders.
Yesterday was an exciting day for many! It marked the last day of the Sukkot. Sukkot is called the Feast of Tabernacles or Ingathering. It was the 7th day of Sukkot which is called Hoshana Rabah. It is a celebration of the "great salvation" and marks the day that the judgments for the coming year are sealed. The truths presented through each of the elements pointed to the prophetic significance and direction KLI has embarked upon.
It was also "Pulpit Freedom Sunday." Over 1500 courageous ministers stood up to challenge part of the IRS Code (501c3) that was established in 1954 that restricts pastors freedom of speech in the pulpit when it comes to political issues. It violates the First Amendment. The goal is to force a trial so the unconstitutional portion of the code as it pertains to Church can be challenged. We support and even participated in this day as one of the 1500+ ministers. In fact, we've even gone beyond the strategy advocated by the ADF and dissolved our 501c3. We are functioning under the First Amendment as a Church and an association of churches and ministries like the Church did for the first 160 years before the Johnson Amendment introduced in 1954.
Yesterday was also the day that Tony & Irene Fournier were set in as elders in the local church in Renton/Kent WA. This was a very exciting day for us. At the start of the service yesterday I realized the significance of the date 10/7/12. The very meaning of each of these numbers combined pointed to and reinforced the purpose of that day.
In Biblical numerology numbers have significant meaning. The numbers mean:
10 - The number of law, order, government and restoration. It is also the number of trial and testing.
7 - The number of perfection and completeness.
12 - The number of divine government and apostolic fullness.
This means: It was the perfect day for us to apostolically set Church government in order and to prepare for the days of testing that are coming.
Over the last 20 years our (Tim & Brenda) destinies have been intertwined with a number others and while yesterday marked the culmination of a number of prophetic words given years ago, it also marked the beginning of another phase of the vision God gave. I was greatly encouraged yesterday when at the beginning of the service I recognized the date was merely one more sign post on this road called destiny.
Yesterday was a milestone in KLI's Church history as Church government was established based upon our charter which is established through acting upon God's written word and Jesus Christ as the Chief Cornerstone. It marked the culmination of the process begun on February 24, 2011 when the Lord launched KLI. Church government was apostolicly set in order.
To God be the glory!
