This morning my wife Brenda and I were praying and she had an epiphany.
Epiphany = a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.
Brenda has watched me struggle this past year as we've worked to build this communication system that supports the 1Church1Day (ORT) strategy. From the time the foundation approached me with the grant application (Feast of Tabernacles at the start of an actual Jubilee year .... what are the odds? They are God odds!), only to discover the seed monies were far short of what it would take a company in the US to build, to finding another company in India to build it, working to raise the extra monies necessary.... she has been working with me through this whole process day in and day out.
She has seen how uncomfortable and painful the process has grown over the last year too. These last few weeks have been really tough and we are not done.
I am stretched far beyond my natural abilities (technology, legal issues. language issues, financial responsibility and did I mention TECHNOLOGY issues?). Lately I've been laboring far into the night and waking long before the sun rises. I'm just uncomfortable, tired and truly relying upon God's grace to help. I know I can and will accomplish certian things but I'm just not always exactly sure as to how. I feel a tremendous weight of responsiblity for this vision I've (we've) carried so long as it is really not our vision as much as it belongs to our heavenly Father and He entrusted this to us.
It all began with a prophetic word God gave me in 1988 before we even knew there was an internet. In 1992 God gave me the plans for the communication system that would serve the time when the body would mobilize as an army to pray and recieve a harvest of souls. It's a day when the body would be connected as one. In 2008 our Lord visited me in my office and gave me the plans for teams of councils inspired by the 7 spheres/mountains.
Then Brenda had the ephiphany. She said I sounded like and was acting in some respects like a woman begining to give birth. She described how uncomfortable it got as the baby grew. Then as the last few weeks came the baby began to drop and wow... the pain, the labor, the work.
She said, where we are at right now in this project, with the testing, is like when the baby begins to crown.
Wow! I'd have never thought of that but then I remembered a prophetic word Barbara Wentroble gave us in the 90s.
Now those of you who know me know that I am all about the fight. I carry a revelation of God as Lord of the Armies. I am called to help leaders mobilize the body of Christ as an army. I mean I'm the author of a book about the eight principles of war.
Then I remembered Barbara's word and the context. Her word for us began in Isaiah 42:9 which says "Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them."
A few verses later is one of my favorite. This scripture is special to me and I've used it many times when I preach.
Yeah, I am a fighter! I love those scriptures that say we are supposed to act like men!
Then I remembered the next verse, the context.
The spiritual war and the birthing process in the spirit through intercession are linked. It's a fight for life.
My friends we are in a spiritual war (Revelation 12) and the issue at hand are the souls of men and women and eternal life. This system empowers churches to be much more effective in projecting power to enforce the will of King Jesus.
The prophetic word God gave me in 1988 provided the fertile ground. The word, vision and plans He gave me by the spirit in 1992 (CONECT) was the seed. Gestation led us to Operation Rolling Thunder. In the third trimester we entered into 1Church1Day and now... the 1Church1Day Community Prayer Transformation System along with its corresponding communcation hub for leaders is crowning.
So know this, it is painful, it is expensive, its hard, it is difficult, it has completely affected our lives for years and it has been very costly in so many ways. But it is worth it and it is almost here.
Why just yesterday we got our first look at some new videos that will accompany this. Want to see one?
This is the video that will introduce a free tool we'll be giving away (note: still doing final edits so this is not done). In one page you'll get the revelation I've spent three decades getting. It is the "Key to Transformation. Below the video is the link to the free one page template & the video!
