Unofficial “The Call” in Philly this Friday

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.

good ole philadelphiaWe 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!

Evan Almighty: A Wacked Out Movie

Evan AlmightyUh… who thought this one up?

If you have a grid that tolerates or embraces the idea that God is able to speak to the culture through art, specifically movies, this one can really mess you up.

I’m not going to go into it, but I remember how “Pearl Harbor” came out before 911 attacks. It could have been God speaking to the country about sneak attacks and being prepared.

This movie was just audacious in terms of how God really does this prophetic thing, with all the awkwardness and ambiguity on the part of the poor unintended prophet.

To make things much more eerie, I stepped out of the theatre into the most massive Tstorm in years. This thing continued for about 2 hours, and I watched a small street sign blow over in the middle of it.

Prayer at Independence Hall

This was last month during the National Day of Prayer. My friends were rocking out in front of Independence Hall before the event started. Notice the giant mound of dirt. Several cool details to come in a future post. For now, here is a video of it. Great song by Don Potter to boot.

What Do I Do?

How do I do? Just fine, thank you.

What do I do? Basically I help people learn how to “brain dump” more efficiently. I do this by teaching them the principles of Instructional Design. These principles are heavily used in the field of eLearning.

I decided to give you a sample of what I do.

Prophecy TrafficLight

Keep in mind that this ppt. file contains ZERO interactivity, making it a rather poor example of eLearning. But for a quick overview of Instructional Design, it works quite well.

The rules are similar to public speaking – tell people what you Will tell them, Tell them, and tell them what you Told them.

This example is for a brief teaching for the prophetic team at my church north of Philly.

The only other instructional technique used here is the familiar symbol of a traffic light and the color codings, which correspond to the 3 stages of a prophetic word.

Interpret My Dream!

OK, so I had a dream a couple days ago. Who wants to take a shot at it?

a modern house I was in a modern style wood home with a vertical skylight window – a duplex. This home was worth $350K, and I thought it was a good deal for the money. I may have been back in Cleveland or it may have been here in Philadelphia. [property values are much more expensive in Philly obviously!]

Anyhow I was walking around in there and the owner comes in and I get weird feelings [because I realize I am basically intruding] and try to get out of there before there’s trouble. The owner sees me but lets me go without a problem although I felt that it was an awkward situation.

On the way out I realize there is not much living space in the house after all, because it is all open air except for a few rooms.

In other news…

1. Today CBB will flip over the 5000 mark. Thank you, faithful readers and subscribers, for this milestone!

2. Dino. I actually watched a bit of the “Dino” show on TBN as I was doing laundry in the basement last night. He had a 9 foot Yamaha piano with giant letters surrounding the piano. There was a “D”, an “I”, then an “N” and finally an “O”. Ack.

Alliances… & new blogs

Those of you who are longtime CBB readers have been subjected to untold angst at my attempts to find like-minded prayer worshipers out here among about 6 million people.

Just wanted to commend my “Bodybuilder” friends and their fledgling blog to you for another perspective on prayer here in Philly. After being back in PA for 3 years I have finally connected with them and their longtime ministry. Also for an update on the 24/7 week at Temple go to the 24 philly blog. Any other Philly prayer bloggers out there? Let’s all grab a cheesesteak!

Dying Penniless

From Rick Joyner’s “Word for the Week” – Morningstar Ministries

I read up on his thoughts each week and find much of what he says to be profound. Currently this man is fulfilling God’s purpose in leading a team that is restoring Jim Bakker’s former PTL property that fell into disrepair in the 80’s.

For those of you reading this who don’t particularly care for Rick or his thoughts, please go on to another blog if you don’t mind!

This guy thinks big… and small!

Penniless

“I have a personal vision for being entrusted with billions of dollars and even being able to pay off the debt of some nations in order to see the biblical prophecies fulfilled, and as a testimony of how the Lord paid the debt of the entire world.

However, I also have a personal goal of dying penniless.”

I did a double-take on that! That’s great. I think Bill Gates has a similar dream of giving almost all of his money away, or at least not to his kids!
