The Glory of God on Cape Cod: January 30, 2008 update
 

  At the recent January 30th prayer meeting, pastors and leaders from
across the Cape, and from diverse denominational and theological backrounds
met to continue to pray for the vision that the Lord deposited in our
hearts, the vision for the Glory of God in our midst and the subsequent
outbreak of revival.

*" Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of
the Living God ?" *1 Samuel 17 :26
* *
* "This day, the Lord will deliver you into my hand........that all the
earth may know that there is a God in Israel......then all this assembly
shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle
is the Lord's..." *1 Samuel 17:46, 47

This scriptural account of David's encounter with Goliath is more than a
Sunday school story. Like David, we, the body of Christ, at times face
giants. The Lord is encouraging us that He is going before us, and that in
His name and power, He will accomplish His purposes for the Cape. He has
stirred us and called us for such a time like this. We just need to submit
to His will, flow with the Holy Spirit's leading and the battle is His.

Please encourage your congregation to join us at the upcoming *Mid-Cape
gathering, Sat, Feb 2, at the Cape Cod Community College, from 3-6 pm*.*The
meeting will be at the Tilden Art Center.* *Registration is now open on this
website, under "Special Events". **Please put this info on your Sunday
church bulletins and on your church website.*
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
