Six ministers in each service addressed the issue of "what lawful and scriptural basis guarantees our freedom to worship God at all times?" The seventh minister led prayer during the benediction and our State Representative wound the whole event up leading us in a song, a corporate prayer of intercession with, "God Bless America."
At the end of the 2nd service I followed Troy Green of Northwest Life Center who served as the closer of this event with a powerful call for the restoration of David's tabernacle. I did the benediction. Click here for a 2 minute Youtube video where I began to pray for the real Church to arise. I prayed for courage to return to the Church and for the body of Christ to get a spine.
But, I want to focus on "arise." Why? Because on our drive back across the mountains we saw an unusual sight which I believe is a sign of the real Church arising. It's an encouragement from our Lord that He has heard and is answering our prayer. 1 Kings 18 provides context for it as does Joel 2. What God is saying through the sign?
There is a Church Arising!
