The Glory of God on Cape Cod: May 7, 2008 update
 

 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea."*

Habakkuk 2:14

*"And there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple
towards the east....the water came up to my ankles.......Again.....the water
came up to my knees.....Again....the water came up to my
waist.....Again...and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water
was too deep....and it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever
the rivers go, will live...." *Ezekiel 47: 1,3,4,5,9

Today again pastors and leaders from across the Cape and across
denominational lines met again to pray for the vision that the Lord
deposited in our hearts, a vision for His Glory in our midst and the
subsequent outbreak of revival.

Today we discussed that there are levels of experiencing God's Glory. The
scripture teaches us that God's glory is manifested in His creation. Also,
God is glorified when He intervenes in a situation in a way that only He
can. Another level of experiencing His Glory is His resting, manifest
Presence among us, that His Presence is self-evident, where even unbelievers
testify that God is in our midst. That Presence brings a harvest of
unbelievers to the kingdom, brings healing to the broken hearted, to broken
marriages, broken friendships....etc. This is the cry of our hearts as we
cry out for the Glory of God on Cape Cod.

We received two encouraging testimonies today by two different pastors. In a
prayer meeting in Dennisport, a woman who was deaf in one ear for 10 years,
was healed of her deafness in front of all in attendance. She publicly gave
her testimony last Sunday at church. Her name is Fabi and her e-mail is
romerof...@hotmail.com .

In a different church in Mashpee, at another prayer meeting, a woman who had
severe arthritis in both knees that she couldn't get up and down the stairs,
testified that God healed her knees. Her name is Karen and her e-mail is
klc1...@aol.com.

*Cape Cod Prayer Furnace:*

Let us all resolve to:

*I. Make every Christian home in your church a house of prayer*. Let every
Christian home on Cape Cod commit to praying half an hour a day specifically
that :

a. The Lord would pour His Spirit on us and our families, that His Presence
would fill our lives (The disciples in the book of Acts were filled many
times, not just once), and that the Presence and Glory of God would fill our
homes.

b. The Lord would pour out His Spirit on your church, that the Presence and
the Glory of God would fill your church where you attend and all the
churches of Cape Cod.

c. The Lord would pour out His Spirit on your town where you live, that He
would bring multitudes to His Kingdom in your town and all over the Cape.

*II. Make every Christian church on the Cape a house a prayer.* If your
church has a vibrant, well-attended prayer meeting, praise God. If not, we
encourage you to start one. Jesus said that the church is a house of prayer,
not only a house of fellowship and preaching/teaching (though of course
these are biblical mandates as well).

We want fervent prayers ascending to the throne of God from every Christian
home and every Christian church on Cape Cod unceasingly; like the widow of
Luke 18:3, until we experience His Glory/manifest Presence in our midst and
the subsequent outbreak of revival.

*III. We further sense that every church would focus its corporate prayer
meeting on praying for the town it is in*; that the Lord would pour out His
Spirit on that particular town and bring multitudes to His Kingdom. This way
we would be building the broken walls of the Cape in a Nehemiah-like
fashion, side by side, town by town. Let us together disseminate this vision
of a Cape Cod Prayer Furnace that asks, seeks, and knocks on heaven's door
for His Glory in our midst and the subsequent outbreak of revival.

Blessings,

The Glory of God on Cape Cod team.
