The Glory of God on Cape Cod: February 20, 2008 update
 

 Today again pastors and leaders from across the Cape and from diverse
denominational backgrounds met to continue to pray for the vision that the
Lord deposited in our hearts, a vision of His Glory in our midst and the
subsequent outbreak of revival.
**
*" And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, He who was with you beyond
the Jordan, to whom you have testified-behold, He is baptizing, and all are
coming to Him!" John answered and said....."He who has the bride is the
bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him,
rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of
mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease." *
John 3:26,27,29,30

*It is the revelation of God's glory in our hearts that drives us to seek to
make His Glory known to all*. Because John the Baptist had a revelation of
who Jesus is, he wasn't interested in building his own kingdom and having
people follow him. It seemed far more fitting to him that people would
follow Jesus. That Jesus *must* increase and he decrease. Similarly when we
have a revelation of God's glory in our hearts, we feel *the same compulsion
*, that He *must* increase and we *must* decrease. It doesn't seem fitting
or right for any of us to build our own kingdoms, only to be co-workers with
Him and *build His!*
**
The leadership team/steering committee of the Glory of God on Cape Cod
vision is calling for a *three day fast *prior to the Mid-Cape Gathering, to
seek the Face of the Lord together. We are going to fast from Thursday
morning 2/21 and break our fast after the gathering.

Please encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ on the Cape to join us
at the upcoming *Mid-Cape gathering, Sat, Feb 23, at the Cape Cod Community
College, from 3-6 pm*. *The meeting will be at the Tilden Art Center.*
*Registration
is still open on our website: **www.thegloryofgodoncaoecod.com** .*

The gathering will be primarily worship and prayer, interspersed with
brief sharing/impartation of key principles for the Glory of God in our
midst:

a. Intimacy with God, which is the foundation of it all :It is
the realization/revelation of God's love for us that compels us to respond
to Him, that 'we love Him because He loved us first'
b. Holiness in the context of (a.) above :Our obedience is motivated
by, and is an expression of, our love for God

c. Our role as 'watchmen' in Prayer and Intercession: ' *I have set
watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem (equivalent to Cape Cod for us), They
shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord,
do not keep silent, and give Him no rest, till He establishes Jerusalem a
praise in the earth (equivalent to till He manifests His Glory in our midst
on the Cape)'. *Isaiah 62:67

Blessings,

The Glory of God on Cape Cod team.
