NEW WAY FORWARD—MOVING BEYOND PREJUDICE, TOTALITARIANISM! Jon’s keynote message at Revolution 2018, at the Trump International Hotel, is no more relevant than now. Please watch! CLICK BELOW:
DEAR FREEDOM WATCHMEN,
FIRST—I look forward to FINALLY being with you tonight on our weekly conference call. We have much to share, and much to pray over. Please keep praying for the victims and families of the the senseless shootings in El Paso and Dayton Saturday and early Sunday. And please join us tonight at this vital time of prayer for the nation.
A New Way Forward—Crossing the Threshold in Gettysburg
As America reeled from this weekend’s horrific bloodshed, it was no coincidence the Glory Train journey brought us to station in Gettysburg PA. On the way to the battlefield I was horrified to discover a cousin of a precious friend was among the Dayton victims. Please join me in prayer for Pastor Chris Mitchell Jr and his family.
While traversing again the grounds of this hallowed battlefield, I remembered how Gettysburg became the threshold of turnaround and victory for the entire Civil War. On July 1-3, 2011, Gettysburg once again became the catalytic threshold for turnaround as we joined north and south together and sought the Lord together for what Abraham Lincoln termed “a new birth of freedom” for our nation.
And through our 2019 Glory Train journey, Gettysburg once again became a threshold for national turnaround. The Lord directed us to Little Roundtop, site of Gettysburg’s fiercest engagement which turned the tide for the battle and the entire Civil War. We wept. We repented of hatred, prejudice, and the divisive war of this hour which has once again set brother against brother, even in the body of Christ. We prayed together. We received communion. We joined arms. And the day following the weekend of horrific shootings, saturated by the tangible presence of God, we together crossed the thresholds of our captivity into this freedom movement. A new way forward has broken through. Special thanks to Abby Abildness, Dr. Joseph Green and team.
Just in time. I don’t believe America can long endure the continued hatred, accusation and divisiveness that has flooded our nation from both sides of the aisle and from our citizens. I am grateful for President Trump’s determined, wholehearted call for America to repudiate white supremacy, anti-semitism, far-left hatred including Antifa, etc. Conversations with James Goll and other prophetic leaders confirmed a sense I have often shared, that he now has an opportunity to LEAD as a primary catalyst for profound reconciliation in our land. This can—and really must—happen.
New Way Forward—Word of the Lord for our Land
During our Revolution gathering at the Trump International Hotel, I gave a keynote message on “The New Way Forward” for our nation. Please take a moment to take to heart this word from the Lord. Not coincidentally this commissioning word for the Glory Train movement was given on December 7, 2018, marking the 77th anniversary of our entry into World War II. A freedom movement is arising to again confront totalitarianism and prejudice. You and I are called to perpetuate the breakthrough of this new way for our nation. NOW IS THE TIME.
Vision—A New Way Forward
On August 25, 2017, not long after the Charlottesville tragedy, I received a vision. In the vision I was at a train station, above and behind the engine of a large train. As with my original vision of the Glory Train, the train’s engine looked like it was made of pure gold. But unlike my previous vision, this engine was not a locomotive. Instead it looked very modern and new. I knew in the vision the train represented the body of Christ.
There was a platform on either side of the train. I looked to the right of the train engine, and saw a group of people literally with white sheets and pointed hats. I looked to the left of the train engine, and saw people dressed in black. All of the sudden smoke or steam shot out from under the wheels of this gold engine. AND THE TRAIN BEGAN TO MOVE FORWARD AND LEAVE THE STATION.
I believe the vision represents the Glory Train. And in a larger sense, the vision conveys how this movement is now moving beyond both the radical left and the radical right. The passengers on this train were all aboard. No room for those who remain with either group! And we, the body of Christ, made up of people from every tribe and tongue and nation, are now moving beyond their sabotage to set a new course for our nation.
We are in a new season. This restoration train is leaving the station! We are advancing beyond the confines the enemy established to both confine us and define us.
Instead, honor is prevailing. Dignity is prevailing. Love, strength, justice and freedom are prevailing. And that’s what this movement is all about.
