You are at a Threshold – in transition to a New Era
The world you emerge into – will not be in the place you left.
I am not speaking about the shift from social isolation.
This is not a time to be distracted, to get stuck or to rush ahead of God. This is a critical time to wait on alert, optimising our remaining time in isolation to go deeper with God, focusing on Him, resting with child-like trust, peace and joy and watching in prayer for our Lord to lead us all forth. Isaiah 28:16 TPT “Behold, I set in place in Zion a Foundation Stone, fully tested and proven to be faithful and secure. And written upon this precious cornerstone is this: ‘Those who trust in him will not act in haste.’”

You are in the Threshold between Passover & Pentecost
Right now we, as Jesus’ disciples, are literally in the momentous pause in the days between the anniversary of Jesus’ crucifixion at Passover and the date of Pentecost, 28 May 2020. It is a time to devote ourselves in prayer in the upper room, as we wait together on the power of the Holy Spirit to come upon us and release us as Jesus’ witnesses to the ends of the earth.
Acts 1:6-8 “So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Pentecost 2020 is very significant.
Join us in expectant prayer -believing the Holy Spirit will move powerfully, reviving and consolidating the many streams of the Church and releasing the people of God in unprecedented evangelism.

You are on the Threshold of Massive Revival and Harvest
Are you ready?
You need to be free of all that encumbers you so you can fulfill Jesus’ call to release captives from darkness, bondage, literal famine and spiritual famine with His tender love and miracle power.
To be ready you need to REST with your eyes on Jesus to get His perspective, His conviction, His alignment and His timing. So you have God’s strategy for your part in His battle. So you are ready to reap our Lord’s Harvest!

You will enter this New Era through Worship
We are under attack. Our health and financial security are at risk. But please understand – the greatest battle right now is for your attention. Do not be distracted by Coronavirus or any other scheme of the enemy.
Who has captivated you?
Worshipping God is the single most powerful thing you can do to win this battle.
Worship answers the questions: Who do you look to? Who do you fear? Who is the Lord of your life?
As you praise, you step from darkness and despair into light and hope.
As you worship, you see Heaven is fighting your battles for you!
Declare the Lamb who is Worthy of all your worship!
As you proclaim Jesus welcome, your Lord reigns in you and your region.
As you turn your heart to Jesus, He finds faith in the earth.
As you fix your eyes on your Beloved, you are transformed.
His presence fills you and the knowledge of His glory fills the earth!
Will you welcome your Lord and King to reign?
Take your stand at the gates of your God-given spheres of influence in your natural family, your Spiritual family, your community, your region. Watch what God is doing and do what He says to do. Together we will see heaven touch earth with hope and blessing!
Will you open the door and your eyes to see the Lord God Almighty?
Revelation 3:20-21-4: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” 2 At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne… 4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clothed in white garments, with golden crowns on their heads.8 And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” 9 And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
Will you devote yourself to join with the night and day worship in heaven?
We invite you to spend sustained times in worship – resting, trusting and listening.
- Breakthrough We offer you an anthem for breakthrough by Chris McClarney. “This one desire Stirring here in me Deep is calling out to deep Take me from where I’ve been Into something new. I’m giving up control I need a breakthrough All of my dreams and fears Are crashing into You You’re waking up my hope You are my breakthrough.”
- Is He Worthy? Check out this invitation offered to our world from one congregation. They ask and answer very relevant questions… “Do you feel the world is broken? Do you feel the shadows deepen? But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through? Do you wish that you could see it all made new?Is all creation groaning? Is a new creation coming? Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? Is it good that we remind ourselves of this? Lyrics
