It has now been 10 days since TheCall in Sacramento, California. I was blessed to be able to attend it with friends and family, what an impactful day! We were blessed the night before with a sweet compilation of worship and prophecy that released a peace into our hearts that prepared us for a full day of prayer and fasting. I don’t know if any of you have been to a Call before or if you made it to this one, but they can be physically draining. I really think that the night of worship before prepared my heart for the day to come.
This years Call was filled with hungry hearts of young and old, it was really cool to see full family’s there with there babies and young children, just as Joel 2:16 says, “Gather the people, sanctify the congregation,Assemble the elders, Gather the children and the nursing infants.”
There is something that happens when you gather the Body of Christ together! The rest of Joel 2:16 says, “Let the bridegroom come out of his room And the bride out of her bridal chamber.” TheCall brought us all out of our comfort zones, our prayer closets, our churches, and into the public arena to declare our love and devotion to our Bridegroom King, Jesus Christ! And guess what? He came and met us where we were and He responded to the cry of our hearts.
The day started with personal reflection and repentance of anything in our own hearts that may be hindering us and those around us from getting closer to the Lord. It was a time of searching, seeking, and asking what it is that we need to repent of and let go of to move forward. This Call had a huge Cross in the back that we would draw our attention to so that we could lay it all down before Him, the One who took all our sins and washed it away with His blood as He was nailed to the cross.
After this personal call to repentance we were lead by different leaders in the Body of Christ to pray against some of the devastating immorality and idolatry that plagues our nation, government, social fabric, educational systems, churches, family’s, homes, babies, and personal lives. Some of these issues included sex trafficking, abortion, homosexuality, immoral governmental leaders, personal compromise, and more. I must say I was heavily impacted when a documentary film producer of sex trafficking held up a little child’s blood stained clothes that were found at the scene of a sex trafficking bust. How can this be happening in our nation, a nation with a deep conviction against slavery? Yet this is happening in most major U.S. cities! The good news is God is revealing this darkness and answering our prayers by catching the sex traffickers, healing and setting victims free, as well as having Craig’s List ban “Adult Services” on it’s page. May I remind you, as well as myself, to continue to pray for this issues as we know the Lord is listening and responding.
Another thing that really convicted me was the call sent out for HOLINESS and PURITY! My generation is so filled with excess and over stimulation that we don’t even know what true holiness and purity even is. We are surrounded by constant entertainment, technology, fashion, noise, celebrity’s, gossip, slander, drunkenness, compromise, darkness, deception, depression, immorality, etc… that we don’t even have a mindset for what the Lord has called us to. Corey Russel shared from the stage that,
“Christianity isn’t boring, you are!”
WOW! How can we know if God is truly fun, exciting, and adventurous if we are giving all of our time to the counterfeit with self seeking pleasures and gratifications? O’ Lord, set my generation free from the bondage and raise up an army of young reckless abandoned lovers of YOU! Set us free Lord. Take our generation from holy-less to HOLINESS!
I know this little blip can’t give you the fullness of what was poured out at the solemn assembly of prayer and fasting but I pray that it will stir you enough to seek out what God is saying to you individually and what He is pouring out to His Body corporately. Join TheCall by responding and joining a world wide movement of lovesick believers that will not back down or compromise until the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
