Is this the beginning?…

Camping at Rod’s was great, we had such an awesome time. Sat up half the night (some of the guys ended up just falling asleep around the camp fire), spent some time just worshipping, praising God in the bottom of the field, in the still of the night. There were so many stars in the sky, it was beautiful! Seriously, i’ve never noticed it so much before.

As we sat around the fire, I was reminded of the day the Holy Spirit came, and descended like tongues of flames. On a Friday night I would normally be at Pulse after our team meeting, but i missed it to go camping with these guys- it was the last night. As i’ve since found out, God did a big thing at Pulse on Friday. Many people recommitted themselves to Christ, or made that desicion for the first time. As I look back, I cant help but think, but wonder- dream, even- that this is the start of a new revival. I spent a long time while camping just staring at the moon, and reminding myself of the prophecy of Joel:

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my Spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Jehovah cometh. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Jehovah shall be delivered; for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as Jehovah hath said, and among the remnant those whom Jehovah doth call.

[Joel 2: 28-32]

Thats the vision the started the 24/7 Prayer movement rolling – a red moon rising, a generation learning to pray as never before. Is this the begining?

The big thing our Exodus team has been captivated by is the vision of ‘Generation 24’:

Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who does not lift up his soul to another or swear by what is false.
He will receive blessing from the Lord
And vindication from God his Saviour.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
Who seek your face O God of Jacob.

[Psalm 24:3-6]

Thats our passion, our dream. To be a generation who seek His face.

Is this the beginning?

    Well friends it just continually amazes me when God moves like how He did on Friday night in Pulse! And just think, there are nations around the world undergoing similar transformations and God-moments that we never even hear about. What awesome thoughts! As we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us keep running this race with perseverance. What we are seeing is only a taste…if we get back to basics and discover what TRUE Faith and Love mean then we will change a nation!

    God said it. I believed it. That settled it!!
