Day 11: Until the Day Breaks

JAMES GOLL will be with us TOMORROW NIGHT for this week’s David’s Tent Prayer Call! Not only is James a prophetic statesman, he is a primary forerunner of the entire 24/7 prayer movement. Join us Wednesday night at 9pm EST. Conference call number: 530-881-1400 access code 903-586. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! Tonight–Sept. 11–Davids Tent Rally–securing the secret place–ministering with Jason Hershey and the W-HOP Team! 7pm, Faith Tabernacle, 300 A Street (behind Supreme Court), Washington DC 20003. For eight months, Jolene and I have lived in an apartment overlooking the Pentagon. And for eight months, I have tried to imagine what it must have been like that bright Tuesday morning when our nation and world forever changed. Ground was broken for the Pentagon’s construction on September 11, 1941. For sixty years–through World War II, the Cold War with the Soviets, Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq–America’s fortress remained the impenetrable symbol of our Nation’s military power. Then came September 11, 2001. In comparison with the destruction of the twin towers, the Pentagon crash only made a dent. The few remaining battle scars convey an even greater symbol of strength. America’s Fortress I had no idea our time at 1111 Army Navy Drive would come to a close on September 11, exactly eleven years after this attack. We’re hosting a prophetic roundtable–to seek God for mercy...

Day 10: Towards Yom Kippur–Hour of Decision

TOMORROW–Sept. 11–Davids Tent Rally–Securing the Secret Place–ministering with Jason Hershey and the W-HOP Team! 7pm, Faith Tabernacle, 300 A Street (behind Supreme Court), Washington DC 20003. Parking @ Supreme Court parking lot after 6pm.  WELL! We’ve had quite a month these past few days. My apologies for not posting. Last Tuesday-Thursday, we moved from two different locations into our new apartment on Capitol Hill. U-haul rocks! We then flew to Albany on Friday for the “Securing the Secret Place” gathering. Moving and ministering was exhausting… but exhilarating! I want to thank the YWAM team for helping us move from Arlington into DC. Especially with the exertion from moving the day before, there’s no way we could have done this without you. You guys made it not only tolerable, but fun! We are also totally grateful to Pastor Jay Francis, Pastor Sharon Carlson, and the amazing team at Rock Road Chapel for hosting us this weekend. For years, we have drawn away around September 11 to seek God for revelation that sets the course for the coming season. This is the fifth year we have held a public prophetic summit. Great to visit with so many old friends, and meet so many new friends! NY and DC–Securing the Secret Place! This year marks the first time we are ministering in New York and Washington DC. What an honor to declare...

Day 5: Divorcing Baal, Restoring the Tabernacle of David

David’s Tent Prayer Call tonight at 9pm. Great news to share! Conference call number: 530-881-1400 access code 903-586. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Some things just have to be said. And today, we’re going to declare the word of the Lord. We wrote yesterday on “securing the Secret Place.” How God has been progressively restoring the Tabernacle of David worldwide, and how September 11, 2001 became a global signpost for this restoration process. Today we’re going to share a primary key to securing the Secret Place–divorcing our idolatry. Tabernacle of David–Progressive Restoration I was an intercessory missionary at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City when I embarked on the Kettle Tour in August 2001. It was an honor to stand for various facets of God’s restoration and repair during my tenure there. There is no doubt that IHOP-KC has been a primary catalyst for the global restoration of the Tabernacle of David. “Harp and bowl” worship and intercession is at the core of this restoration, with a focus on Jesus as Bridegroom, King and Judge. We should be so grateful for this work! There are several other components of this restoration that are still in the maturing process nationally and globally. Major facets we are dedicated to seeing birthed include: Covenantal Authority–The Tabernacle of David was an expression of God’s covenant with Israel, in the capital city. This...

Day 4: Securing the Secret Place

Securing the Secret Place! Sept 7-9, 11 “You shall hide me in the secret of Your Presence from the strife of tongues and the conspiracies of man”–Psalm 31:20 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” –Psalm 91:1. Each year around September 11, Jolene and I retreat to a “secret place” to hear and share what we feel the Lord is saying for the coming season. He always meets us with fresh revelation that brings amazing clarity to what’s ahead. I was on a van crossing the Hudson River when God set me on this course. In late August 2011, I joined a group of intercessors for the Kettle Tour, a forerunning prayer journey for the Call Boston led by Dutch Sheets with Lou Engle and Will Ford. It was the last time I saw the twin towers. Call 911 We were discussing a dream Dutch’s wife Ceci shared from their home in Colorado Springs. In the dream, Ceci had just become pregnant. She looked down again and realized she had suddenly come to full term. “Call 911! Call 911!” She began to shout, realizing there was nobody around to help her deliver this child. “The experts are needed at this time!” After Dutch shared the dream, a debate began among the budding forerunners in the group. Dutch had...

Day 3: Crossing the River–A Personal Note

Today, I want to share more on a personal note. A few weeks ago, friends who opened the Arlington apartment we have lived in these eight months let us know that the apartment complex did not renew their lease for another year. This prophets chamber, which overlooks the Pentagon and all of DC, has been an amazing prayer base. We are having a final prayer gathering here September 11. Needless to say, with David’s Tent just a month away, this news was really challenging for us! We made tentative plans to move back to our home in Maryland. And we prayed–hard–along with a number of our friends. Cross the (Potomac) River! To a person, our friends all sensed God was extending a “Joshua call.” It’s not time to retreat, but to cross the river, advance and take the land! By this, of course, they meant DC. Crossing the Potomac… where even a parking space can cost more than many mortgages! I almost dismissed their idea. Except that I had just written how God is calling His people to be like Joshua and Caleb–to advance and take the land. That was a primary theme of our last prayer project. Moving to Capitol Hill! The way seemed impossible–especially financially. But what we didn’t know is that dear friends had already heard from the Lord to sow a significant gift into our...
