"Standing Together as One

Congress returns from its two-week April district work period to a very full plate with very little time.

The two big items on the agenda are (1) how to handle the Affordable Care Act, and (2) funding the federal government for the rest of the fiscal year. The latter has a hard deadline of Friday, April 28. The former does not. While Congress tends to work better under pressure, sometimes manufactured pressure can backfire.

Ideally Congress would repeal ACA first so it would not put any more money into it.
It's nearly impossible for us to know the status of this legislation at this time as nearly all negotiations are behind closed doors and on private calls. (Some reporters hear things, but there are few specifics.) The House GOP is holding an unusual Saturday conference call to discuss negotiations related to this coming week.
Our God knows, though, all that is being said, all the motivations behind various policy maneuvers, and how to find a path toward God-honoring freedom and public policy in America. Sometimes He moves at lightning speed.
This week we seek and trust God, in Jesus' name, to make a way for legislation to move for his glory. Nothing is stalled when God decides its time to move. Please join us in seeking Him today and this coming week.

Inviting all Saints of God to join us in A DAY OF WORSHIP!

The Birth of a Vision

The Birth of a Vision


Dear Saints,

In this turbulent time, can you feel the Spirit stirring?? It's as if He is just "ready" to unleash something upon our land . . . a "something" that will have His signature of blessing, mercy, and LOVE over our people!

As we have convened in a prayer conference call this week, our Lord began quickening to us that there is a PROPHETIC MEANING to the fact that our new president is nearing the completion of his FIRST 100 DAYS in office . . . something is UP! This is truly a SET TIME to praise Him!!!

God is the potter and we are the clay . . . He is busy molding us into His image . . . His finished work . . . in preparation for His soon return!

And, much as we honor and esteem our president, this is a KINGDOM WORK - a KINGDOM TIMING - for that "new thing" to come forth!

"Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:19)


Looking Back . . .


As a nation, in days past we have been called to:

- A National Day of Prayer

- A National Day of Fasting

- A National Day of Repentance


BUT WE HAVE NEVER BEEN CALLED TO A NATIONAL DAY OF WORSHIP!!!!!!!!!!

How to Respond

How to Respond . . .

> > > How, then, shall we accomplish this amazing task?? To call a NATION to WORSHIP?

You can open your mouth and praise him in your home . . . praise Him in your car . . . praise Him in your church . . . praise Him with your friends . . . praise Him in the city . . . praise Him in the country . . . praise Him under the sun . . . and praise Him under the stars!
JUST PRAISE OUR LORD IN WORSHIP . . . ANYTIME DURING THE DAY ON SATURDAY, APRIL 29TH . . . AS TOGETHER WE WITNESS THE ENDING OF THE FIRST HUNDRED DAYS OF THIS "NEW THING" . . . AND UNLEASH THE BLESSINGS OF A DOUBLE JUBILEE IN OUR LAND!

Here's a clue!

And then . . . simply stand back . . . and see what He does!

Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, who is and who was and who is to come! Amen!


"Oh, bless our God, you peoples! And make the voice of His praise to be heard!" (Isaiah 66:8)

PSALM 100

PSALM 100

Please note PSALM 100 for the FIRST 100 DAYS:
A Song of Praise for the LORD's Faithfulness to His People

A Psalm of Thanksgiving.

1 Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
2 Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
3 Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

What more can we say??? Except: IT IS FINISHED!!

A Biblical Foundation

A Strategy Built Upon a Biblical Foundation!

When we enter into any strategy to advance the Kingdom of God, we need to be certain that our work is grounded and founded in the TRUTH of His Word. Tonight's strategy is based upon the teachings found in 2 Chronicles 20:21.
In the time of Jehoshaphat, Israel was surrounded by enemies. When our Lord sent Jehoshaphat and the army of Judah out to battle, He instructed them to leave all their weapons at home, and to simply show up with TRUMPETS in hand. [What kind of strategy was THAT??]

IT IS WRITTEN: And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: "Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever."

Can you imagine how those enemies LAUGHED at the men of Israel, as they showed up for the battle carrying only a TRUMPET in their hand??

But when the battle began, all of Israel's soldiers simply PRAISED OUR LORD - AT THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET!

The sound of the praises of God's people TOTALLY CONFUSED their enemies, who then turned upon each other, destroying them.
Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people . . . and they were defeated: Just as God promised, the battle belonged to Him and He won the victory on behalf of Judah. We might say that it was not their praise that won the battle, rather it was their faith; yet their praise was sure evidence of their faith. When one really believes the words and promises of God, they cannot but help to praise Him.
Through their faithfulness in WORSHIPING and in SOUNDING THE TRUMPET in PRAISE unto our Almighty King, the children of Judah released a FREQUENCY that resounded through the heavenlies, causing all things to be placed under His Authority!
HALLELUJAH!!

THE BATTLE WAS THE LORD'S!


. . . AND THE MEN OF ISRAEL WERE LEFT TO PICK UP THE SPOIL . . . WHICH THEN TOOK THREE DAYS!

Our Enemies

Our Enemies

> > > Today, too, America is threatened by enemies, both foreign and domestic. And our Lord is calling upon us, too, to confront those enemies with the weapons of OUR warfare - our worship and our praise -- and He will win the battle for us!

Our Victory!

Our Victory!

LET US JOIN FORCES TO NOT ONLY RETAIN THE GROUND WE HAVE CAPTURED, BUT TO GO DEEPER AND HIGHER IN THE BUILIDNG OF HIS KINGDOM, FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS . . . AS THOSE SOLDIERS ACCOMPLISHED IN ANCIENT ISRAEL.

HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please help us!

Please help us!

Please help us to spread this call to WORSHIP ACROSS THE NATION on
SATURDAY, APRIL 29TH . . . ANY TIME DURING THE DAY!

Keep it simple! No need to join with others in this time of NATIONAL PRAISE . . . unless our Lord directs you to do so.
