Guess what Guys?
DAY TWO WAS JUST AS INSANE AS DAY ONE!
So this was where we started off our day was at Bethel Church / Bethel Christian School which was amazing I had no idea and I dont think we had any idea what to expect! When you go to a different church or universities worship you have no idea what you are going to expect. It was amazing though was this, Dave said it the best there is freedom in their worship within structure. Maybe it was just me but I felt completely free to worship. It was one of the longest services (so I thought) that I had ever been too it was approximately two hours long and I did not even believe how fast time went past! Before we knew it the service was over, we were a little over exhausted and missed a little bit about what he was saying but there were a few things that still sat into us. Which was this all roads lead to Zion and that water should be a spring out of us. Zion was the biggest thing that sat with me... Zion is not something from the matrix or a made up place but it was the place of tabernacle where David had 24/7 worship for many many years. He asked us this what happened to Zion?
Reference to Mid-day Break this is what went on during this break. Then the PARTY started we got back to Bethel and we went to this picture below which was the house of prayer. Now this room was pretty great I believe every Christian Campus should have one which is a prayer room where you can go and just relax. I went there and read one chapter in the bible and then went to sleep and took a nap before getting up for Church again. The Chapter I read was this Ezekiel 37:
The Valley of Dry Bones1 The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”
4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.
11 Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you, my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. 14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD."
I did not understand the significance of this until later. Actually until writing this blog now I did not see how important this passage was. Quick spoiler this entire night was a night of prophesy upon me, us and our group together.
So you know how I mentioned that the first church service was the longest I had ever been through? Well that was the truth until this service we enter the church at 6pm and left somewhere around midnight. Yes you are reading that correctly we were at church for nearly 6 hours :). Well worship was great again, there was so many different forms or worship in the church, there was a dancer, flag dancer and also people painting. It was great to see and then the night became interesting in a GREAT way. BOB JONES came back up to speak and was the main speaker for the night and absolutely laid a ton of things out that impacted our group and I will summarize what happened. First is this was the calling of David and living as a Champion. Now this significance was this FOREST GIBS 48 HOURS EARLIER told Dan Lowen
After the Church service had its first 'ending' there was a FIRE TUNNEL that was opened up which was basically the ministry teams set up like a gauntlet and you walked through well they spoke words into your life. I do not think I have seen so many people drunk without having a sip of alcohol before. It was insane they were bless with the holy spirit and were just passing things through. Bethel has a really crazy push for having the holy spirit coming down. We did not experience it like others that were attending that night but that is alright. It was something foreign to us and something that was difficult to understand. It was amazing so see though going there and seeing this worship makes God feel a lot more real and that you can see him moving!
Then started the prophetic speeches the first one was laid over Dan Lowen, they encouraged him to continue what was on his heart and told him that whole cities would move through him (cool huh?). Next we were in line to get some words for us and Fooda came up to me and told me he had a word. Said I had the spirit of healing maybe not physical healing as much as the healing of souls, through caring, compassion and understanding. Then next Chris came up to our group and talked to us about what he saw and where we were going. He mentioned that Robyn was an artist (she paints and only Rebecca knew that) and that I was a spiritual dancer. That has so much significance because at this point in the trip that has been the third time I have heard that after Forest said I dance in the spiritual realm. He encouraged our group to not only continue to go down the path we are going but to also bring back the gifts we have been given to Canada. That when we cross the border it will not just be a physical but also a spiritual, that we will have to pass through the fog/cloud and use these gifts to spread the kingdom. It was interesting he said it that way because Forest Gibs mentioned just 48 hours before that he saw a cloud over the Canada and that God was ready to come pass through. I know I have not shared all this but we as a group are still working through out tapes from Forest and now our next tapes from tonight. The next update I will get each member to share what has been going on in their lives on this trip so far. Unfortunately they are all sleeping :)
After we received prophetic words we were talking with Daniel who gave us some more encouragement/blessings. Just that our group would again use our gifts to bring them back to Langley. He also mentioned some gifts and things he saw in the spirit that was interesting as we will share tomorrow because they reinforced exactly what had been told to us earlier. Kinda of crazy eh? Then a guy named TJ came up and gave us some more encouragement about our crew which was this... What a mole? It was shown this way that as a group we can accomplish greater things that if one member misses one thing, the next member will pick it up. TJ left us with some blessings which were these:
Manuel: He words are like Lava, hot burning slow moving be paintent
Christian: Sports, striking out 15 times before hitting a home run, that there would be a learning of Resistance
Rebecca: Arts that she is a writer she would write down her thoughts
Dan: That if you were on a road trip this is who you want? Is not the center attention but when he speaks his insight, wisdom and humor are a blessing
Robyn: He pictured her as a comfort person that when people are going through hard times she was be a support for them.
Andrea: That she is elegant that she is a princess of the Lord
This is what our WHOLE night was like one blessing/prophetic speech after another there will be alot more to share but that will be at the digression of each person.
Sure enough though at the end of the night we got some In-n-Out because you know what a night of emotional growth, spiritual understanding and singing is taxing on the body. We end the night just talking to Dave about digression and understanding through everything.
That is the prayer I leave you with guys is this and please pray for us on a the trip and remember these things. We pray for digression that we might understand what God has in store for us, that we would be able to grow the spiritual gifts he has given us this trip, and that we may in return pour out the blessing to the people around us. Please pray for us for safe travel and freedom from sickness!
Thank you for all the blessings and support so far we are cannot wait to see what is to come!
