Does it seem to anyone else that the heat is being turned up???Is there an intensifying of the spiritual warfare? Are we in a period of purification??? I believe we are. That God is moving in a mighty way, and we are growing in purity, in unity (because never have we needed one another so much) and in surrender. Things hidden are being exposed to the Light and healed-halleluiah.
Alot is happening in 2008. There is a youth event in the center of America coming up in June called Paradise '08. It began in the city of Paradise in Kansas. They have moved it to a new location near there with more room for this coming event. I love it because it is centered around a throne to symbolize Jesus as our center. There will be no promos, no sales, no big names to draw crowds. Just a simple call to repentance and revival and centering life on our Savior.
The other event is Rain Down USA taking place in Washington DC. You can google these things, or Prayer Transformation Ministries, which is where I found out about them. It is a year of repentance and turning back to God. I believe He is purging His bride right now. He is training us in endurance. May we rise to the occasion, may His Spirit move and heal us, heal our land. May we become intercessors for our country. May our faith increase and may we shine for His glory.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Isaiah 61:3b,4
