Yesterday was April 1st. That marked the 8th year since I spoke for Dutch Sheets at, "Awakening in our Day Reformation in our Lifetime Conference." I've taken a few short clips (4 min) from the 50 minute sermon to share here. Click here for the short video clip.
This day was a miraculous day that God marked with a sign and a wonder that all witnessed (thundersnow). This was the 1st conference that I'd ever shared my new book "Operation Rolling Thunder." When I published it at the end of 2008 we'd only recorded 12 major signs and wonders God gave to mark the message.
In the audience was Dr. Peter Wagner. In 1994 someone passed my manuscript outlining the principles as well as the basic prayer strategy that formed the basis of CONECT (Christian Outreach Network Establishing Church-wide Teamwork), then Operation Rolling Thunder and now 1Church1Day. At the time Dr. Wagner was teaching at Fuller Seminary and headed up their missions department. I was so surprised when I he sent me my manuscript back. He'd actually read it and there was so much red ink all through it. But on the front cover he wrote "nice theory, no proof."
NICE THEORY.... NO PROOF! God knew that was the perfect challenge for me for I set about to take action and prove God's word. Now, 15 years later, the man that issued that challenge is in the audience. I wanted to thank him and I began to rehearse, like Daniel, all the things I had seen God do for me.
I'd just returned from Alaska one week before where I saw God mark the message I carried with three amazing signs and wonders (included two volcanic eruptions, an international date line and an earthquake). Note, the word delivered or the actions performed set the context for these events.
One hour after I had ministered the word, the strategy now encapsulated in 1Church1Day, God performed another sign and wonder. Thunder-snow occurred in the four cities surrounding us. Which, that means nothing, unless you were there and heard me share how thunder-snow had marked a couple of our Kick Off events for ORT. The delivery of a specific word from the Lord provides context for the signs that followed.
In the video clip I mention 12 signs and wonders. Today, I can conservatively report there has been over 90. One of the things I discovered is that God would give signs and wonders to encourage us to continue until we saw measurable results. He continues to do that today.
In fact, if you simply look at the last two articles in this blog you will see what God has done in Lane County Oregon.
The Back Story
Now, let me provide you some of the back story. A few months before this conference I'd been invited by Dr. Wagner to come to his office with a handful of leaders (Lance Wallnau, Peter and Doris Wagner, Dutch Sheets, Tim Sheets, Johnny Enlow, Mike and Cindy Jacobs, Rick Joyner, John Benefil, Peter Roselle, Tim Hammond, Che Ahn, Chris VAllaton, Robert Henderson, Dale and Barbara Wentroble, and me). Lance facilitated the meeting and the topic was the 7 Mountain Mandate.
Lance said that one of the primary issues was how to get intercessors praying for the 7 mountains. Rick added it was important to get them dialoging with the leaders.
I have not forgotten that meeting and those questions played a factor in the building of the 1Church1Day Community Prayer Transformation System whose app is now being offered through Google Play Store and Apple Itunes.
The 1Church1Day Community Prayer Transformation System
This system was finally launched last month. That's eight years since the conference and my meeting with the leaders in Dr. Wagner's office. This system answers the questions the leaders posed at Dr. Wagner's office in 2009. We are still in a trial phase and making some changes and upgrades but.... it is OPERATIONAL! I am so excited because it is merely a system built upon God's word and the ancient pattern King David modeled in Zion.
God has marked this message, this strategy, the people who apply God's word time and again with signs just like you see when God showed up for the Psalmist (King David) in Psalm 18. The biblical foundation is covered in my book Operation Rolling Thunder the Revised Edition. As Lane county discovered in May 2015 (225 lighting strikes & 5 earthquakes marked the launch of 1Church1Day when 500 gathered together) God gives signs to encourage His people to continue with His plan until they see measurable results.
Therefore, I thought it good to share with you some of the signs and wonders I've seen God work for me. The video below... shares the results that follow these signs and wonders.
