Prayer Storm Firestarters,
What an honor to launch this next phase of Prayer Storm with you from Jerusalem, Israel. Jolene and I are so looking forward to the call tonight. James Goll, who started this all-encompassing blaze nine years ago, will be joining us.
Thank you all for praying for the recent storms of terrorism to be abated! Please keep vigilant. In the midst of many challenges, Zion is again in travail for breakthrough. Together by the Spirit we are countering the enemy’s storms with a global storm of God’s glory!
The Glory Storm
Last week we shared how we are being synchronized again with ancient prophetic promises from Amos 9:11. The global Tabernacle of David is being restored. Its breaches are becoming healed. The mountains of Israel are dripping with sweet wine, and the tribes of the earth are beginning to shine with fire from Christ’s own eyes and heart!
The storm of God’s glory is being restored. And today I’m encompassed by its lightning and thunder. Our friends Steve and Taffi Carpenter are leading an “Isaiah 19 watch” for the Mideast at Succat Hallel, a 24-7 prayer center in Jerusalem founded by Rick and Patti Ridings. The prayer center literally overlooks Mount Zion, the Mount of Olives, and the Temple Mount. It is the geographic epicenter where David’s Tabernacle redefined the world. It is the spiritual epicenter of a global “Conflict of Thrones.”
And biblically, it is the eternal throne of God, the very ground upon which Jesus Himself returns. Talk about a view…
And here a room packed with worshippers are crying out not only for Israel, but for Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran etc. For all the sons and daughters of Abraham to see God’s glory!
Let me correct myself. It’s actually for these nations to see His glory again. A glory storm actually swept through the entire Mideast and Mediterranean region after Christ’s resurrection. Pentecost. A mighty, rushing wind burst into an upper chamber where the disciples of Jesus were praying. Lightning bolts fell. A new Spirit language ignited their innermost beings. And they bore witness to the nations of this Jew named Jesus, crucified yet alive, Messiah of the world.
Holy Spirit, come again! May Your glory storms invade all of our vacated spaces. Turn the lights back on. And let the earth be filled with your glory, in Jesus’ Name!
Covenant Consecration on Zion
Tonight we enter into covenant with God for His work through Prayer Storm. A prophetic intercessor from our Lamplighter family recently told me a dream. She had no idea we were headed to Jerusalem. But she saw terrible storm clouds over the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives. Three rabbis came to her weeping, asking her if there remained any hope. She turned and pointed back to the mountains. Rainbows had formed where the storms had just been!
Rainbows. Signs of God’s covenant. Here’s a key for you in this season. Look for the rainbows in the storm! We must see how God’s covenant trumps the storms of the enemy, the storms even of nations.
David is famous for establishing the 24-7 Tabernacle that bears his name. But have you noticed his first priority? He first gave himself to repairing his nation’s covenant with the Lord after it had been violated. The Ark of God’s national covenant with Israel was restored. From this realignment, a throne of glory was established that provoked His people to worship 24-7!
Follow David’s example. Make every effort to realign with the covenant of God! Then your worship will truly host God’s glory. He will bless you and deliver you from the enemy’s storms. “This covenant I have made with you, you shall not forget, nor shall you fear other gods. But the Lord your God you shall fear, and He shall deliver you from the hand of every adversary!” (II Kings 17:38-39).
It’s for this reason our Prayer Storm relaunch is being consecrated to the Lord from Zion, where the Ark of the Covenant rested and David’s Tabernacle was originally established. We too want to be rightly aligned as we “call 911!” Then together we will see God’s governmental authority in action. Amidst this global conflict of thrones, nations will be delivered unto glory!
Relighting the Flame
Lets remember how covenant with the Lord first defined this movement. Nine years ago James Goll awoke to a vision of the words “Prayer Storm” hovering in front of him in blazing amber. He had just experienced a prophetic dream. The audible voice of the Lord commissioned him to “restore and release the global Moravian lampstand!”
From the time James shared this with us I was wrecked. Remember we are “Lamplighter Ministries.” Jolene and I were married on the first day of Hanukkah—and without going into detail, during worship God supernaturally lit our unity candle, held by our menorah or lampstand. In front of everyone!
Further, I had received a “commissioning word” myself—which launched us into full-time ministry. The Lord had spoken to us that from region to region, He is resetting His lampstands and relighting the flame. And He called us to run with Him to see this lamps lit!
Suddenly we found ourselves being swept into this unanticipated convergence of storms. You probably know the feeling!
Prayer Storm Lampstand—Seven Priorities
Most of you are familiar with the Moravians—thanks largely to James’ work. Back in the early 1990s, the prophet shined a light on this extraordinary legacy all but forgotten by the Protestant world. Rediscovering a 24-7 prayer vigil kept by the Moravians for more than a hundred years.
Inspired by the Tabernacle of David, the vigil kept by these forerunners essentially launched two great awakenings and the modern missions movement. From their lampstand came a sacred fire that defines the prayer movement today. The watch of the Lord. Prayer and missions. Apostolic community. Fire on the altar. Even 24-7 prayer for the harvest of nations! Across the globe, we are being summoned to a similar watch right now.
James was also shown violent storms over nations, similar to the warning dream we just shared. Some storms could be stopped entirely through intercession. Some could be abated. And some storms would even be empowered through the united intercession of this move.
With this at heart, key priorities were highlighted by Holy Spirit to James. I have taken the liberty of expanding on a few of these priorities simply to give further clarity and focus to what he articulated. They are the seven branches of the Prayer Storm lampstand!
James saw a Global Prayer Storm focused on:
- Revival in the Church
- Prayer for Israel
- Prayer for all the offspring of Abraham
- Youth awakening
- Crisis intercession
- Governmental intercession
- Real-time prophetic revelation
Whoa! And tonight we together are receiving this burning lampstand of covenant. For Zion and for the nations! As we walk out this journey together we’re going to see the storm of God’s glory released like never before. Truly global Prayer Storm!
Let there be light,
Jon & Jolene
