This video of the Moravians is a “must watch.” We must know our history! I was trained as a young man in missions under the tutelage of Youth With A Mission (YWAM). From a missions perspective I was gripped at the Moravian Model of 24/7 prayer leading to the birthing of the modern day missions movement. The story of the Moravians caused me to dream of a fresh wave of prayer and missions in my generation!
We are all grieved at the continuing deadly violence in our country. A nation is crying out! The other morning this Headline showed up on CNN, and very much grabbed my heart.
ONLY JESUS can heal America!
It won’t be the next President or even the hot evangelist. Nor the amazing mega church or innovative new inventions. Nor will it be the most popular worship band or strategy to reach our city. Though God does use and work through people, it will only be Jesus.
Jesus is the only One.
America, please please please turn to Him and be saved.
“If my people will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways and seek my face, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
There must be more prayer meetings than protests. If we as a nation are going to cry out, may we cry out to the One who is Mighty to save. He alone can save us.
This week our core team in DC has launched a new hashtag: #iamDavidsTent. Currently we are gathering the volunteer army to make David’s Tent DC a reality. We are inviting the ones that are filled with passion for Jesus and valor enough to lay their lives down for 14 months, in order to set the table for this lavish 10,000 hour offering and to see America changed.
This past week, we released a video of Karl Hammonds. Karl has already responded to the call and is here in DC with us helping build the structures that will make this all work. The video ends with Karl declaring, “I am David’s Tent.”
This declaration is one that we want to see blasted across our generation. We know from scripture that the main purpose of King David’s tent in Jerusalem was to host the Presence of God (The ark of the covenant – 1 Chronicles 16:1).
In the new covenant that Jesus gave us, we know that our individual lives are to have the same purpose— to be a temple – a dwelling for the Holy Spirit, the Presence of God. (1 Corinthians 6:19). We also know together as the body of Christ we corporately have the same purpose, being built together as a spiritual house as priests to Him. (1 Peter 2:5)
