Come one come all to the PA Statewide 24!
I am currently securing a 2nd mortgage to finance a Cheesesteak Challenge for 2 very special intercessory families – that’s 9 cheesesteaks. Hopefully we have a bunch of pictures and stuff of this joyful occasion.
So I’ve been hearing all sorts of stuff about some tattooed biker ex-con from Canada named Todd Bentley for several years now. Everyone I know who have attended any of his meetings tends to come back raving about it. As for me, I have never seen any of the meetings and never felt the need to. Part of the reason that I had been reluctant to jump on the bandwagon is that Todd is a year younger than me and it sort of messes with my security for some reason. About as stupid a reason as any other, and we all have our various offenses and hangups.
When the buzz started generating about a month ago about a new renewal coming out of Florida, I maintained my wait & see attitude. I’m certainly happy to hear about any credible activity, even any not-so credible activity. The difference with this new outburst of activity is that you can see it live on http://www.god.tv for free as it is happening. It is also spreading to other regions, you can go to the Morningstar website to see another distinct expression of this. Please do NOT do this unless you are open to having your paradigm shifted, and open to God using a heavily tattooed biker ex-con with a non-religious attitude. When he prays for people he says “BAM!” as if he were hosting some sort of show on the cooking channel. I just know this will offend you, so DON’T tune in!
They just brought up an 11 year old kid who “didn’t want to fall over”, and it was funny. When Todd prayed for him you could see he was a bit happy from it but the little trooper stayed on his feet.
So I’m a bit overwhelmed at my options on the webstream. I can watch yesterday’s healing service, watch worship for today’s healing service, the Jerusalem Prayer Meeting, and The Call Jerusalem is happening soon. I’m watching them ALL simultaneously on my computer… a bit overstimulating I suppose.
It’s 4pm on the east coast, 9 more hours left to login to http://www.god.tv and watch The Call. It is really intense – I went to Nashville for that event, this is very intense.
Everyone is crying out “LIFE” for the past 30 minutes. I’m thinking we need to start crying out for people’s hearts to be convicted as this legislation is passed. That will be a greater battle than just getting a law passed. I can’t imagine how people will respond if God doesn’t convict them once righteous laws are passed.
Now they’ve got the little kids praying… it’s just like Jesus Camp, minus the skewed filmmaker bias. What group is better to pray for LIFE than the generation that could have been terminated 4, 5, 6 years ago? Perhaps these kids understand the dynamic better than us adults.
I’m packing up for the Joseph Company’s “Cities of Refuge” conference at the IHOP.
Will be in town for a shorter trip than last time – from Thursday the 18th to Sunday the 21st. I’m happy to sit down & buy CBB commenters a coffee or juice drink but have less availability for dinner… with at least one exception:
The soul who can give me a lift from the airport circa 5pm Thursday the 18th will win dinner at the fabled Jack Stack’s for him/herself and a friend/spouse/significant other. It’s the least I can do. Leave a comment to be eligible. The runner-up comments at least get a free drink in the coffeehouse.
Ironically I am also packing up for a move to the Princeton area for the new job I start immediately afterward. Been in the Philadelphia city limits for just over 1 year at this point and it looks like God’s moving me exactly halfway between Philly and New York City.
The challenge is on! Comment to win!
A homeless guy came in, with his three friends. They were golden retrievers.
Fortunately they didn’t urinate on the equipment, nothing short-circuited, the music and prayer continued, and hopefully the guy felt the love of God.
I’m glad that didn’t happen during my slot or I may not have been as civil as the worship leader was. We don’t really have a policy for handling pets at the 12, so I’m sure there will be some sort of protocol established before next month’s event!
Anyone who missed it or wants to hear it all over again can go here and get a good chunk of it back. Thanks Firekeep podcast people for the bootleg!
Anybody who took part in The Call Nashville via attendance or active webcast participation is welcome to join a handful of us this Friday night, 7-10pm – location TBD soon. Informal worship, prayer, impartation, and fasting is what’s on the menu.
We have got to bring the “seal of Love” to the “City of Love” and build each other up. We have got to stick together from now on! I can feel the impact of Saturday getting more elusive already, but we can cultivate this thing locally. Struggles that I have had for decades have been winnable this week. Something happened on Saturday and I am not gonna let this wear off!
