There has never been a time like this

And this vision will be. It will come to pass; it will come easily; it will come soon. How do I know? Because this is the longing of creation itself, the groaning of the Spirit, the very dream of God. My tomorrow is his today. My distant hope is his 3D. And my feeble, whispered, faithless prayer invokes a thunderous, resounding, bone-shaking great 'Amen!' from countless angels, from hero's of the faith, from Christ himself. And he is the original dreamer, the ultimate winner
Pete Greig's "The Vision"

These are unique days. These days... we stand at the threshold of a revolution. We do. Christians around the world are sensing it. Humans have been praying since we've had breath but something violent and fresh is blowing the long awaited wind into our today 's again.

I went to a meeting last night with a group of glorious nobodies who are passionate about prayer. Prayer 24/7.
Non-stop. Without ceasing. Partnering prayer with the "longing of creation". Here's what it's about...

What God is stirring and releasing these days is so far beyond denominational lines that it seems utterly foolish to even consider them in the discussion. It's free for all to experience.

Pete Greig wrote a wonderful piece about "Lakeland, Florida, Barrack Obama, and Burma: A call to respond to the signs of the time"

Is it coincidence that, slap-bang in the middle of such political, economic and environmental turmoil, we are also witnessing a fresh hunger for God’s presence in thousands of churches? Are the events in Lakeland, Florida disconnected from this season of global transition and turmoil? Surely it must mean something that such a time of travail hosted the world’s biggest prayer meeting as millions of Christians across 211 nations cried out to God together for the earth to be filled with the knowledge of His glory’ (Hab. 2:13)?

I'm going to warn you. This is the age of everyone.

This is the age where YOU are the faith healer in Walmart.
This is the age where YOU are the defender of the weak.
This is the age where YOU are the block Pastor.
This is the age where YOU have access to every good God gift.

This is an age where all bets are off and God is on the move. And it requires a change in our mindset. Chris Jones the leader of the 24/7 National team last night talked about how we need to reset our rhythms so we're eating, drinking, living in, walking beside and sleeping together with the Spirit of God.

This is my desktop right now...

God is up to something BIG. Don't say I didn't warn you.
