Last night, Friday September 18, 2015 a retreat of generals in the Army of the Lord gathered at the Chapel of the Whole Word Fellowship. The purpose of a retreat is to withdraw and back away for a time from war. The men and women who have been assembled in this two day gathering have been on the frontline of war. It is the warfare necessary for the dominion of spheres and territories. Israel could only have rest because David successfully warred to gain all the land that God promised them.
I have had the privilege of traveling and meeting some of the greatest men and women in the kingdom of God. Many of them are not known in the nations but they are known in heaven and hell. They are a remnant of power and they are being positioned to gather the greatest harvest in the history of mankind.
Whenever God manifest His presence in a place it is because they are a people opening the door for his entrance. Last night we were led to prepare the house for the entrance of the Lord with an incredible psalmist, worshipper and lover of God. Shantae Charles was the worship leader last night. She is skilled and anointed in several creative fields. You can find more about Shantae at her website www.outrageouschurch.blogspot.com
The visionary and lead Apostle for this gathering is Apostle Oliver Reid. Apostle Reid, www.otrministries.com, has created a place for leaders to gather and share their struggles, pains and journey without condemnation, judgment and exposure. There was a moment last night when the veil was lifted and the hearts of these men and women were free to show the scars and challenges of the war they have fought for the ground that has been assigned to them.
There was also a moment, during an exercise led by Apostle Oliver Reid where faith was encouraged and dreams were revealed. From that one exercise an incubator was created for dreams to be stored and the impossible spoken.
The opening message was given by Pastor Bennett Aboagye of Renew Life Worship Center in Woodbridge Va. This pastor told one of the most incredible stories of faith that I’ve ever heard. I don’t have permission to share it but I’m hopeful that I will in my next blog. Pastor Aboagye is not only a forceful preacher but an incredible intercessor who rattles the gates of hell and summons the angelic host. There was a level of decrees spoken last night that established a shift in the earth.
Today we continue. I’m teaching today on the four test that leaders experience and the rewards given to Overcomers. I’m excited about the exchange as we engage for transformation.
