Kingdom MinuteMen: Rapid Mobilization Forces (Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network)

HAPN Minute Men: Rapid Mobilization Forces

Recently through divine leading of the Lord, I found myself standing in a Confederate Cemetery as a part of a state and nationwide prayer initiative. One of the intercessors that was with our team called me over see a monument that was set to honor the genealogy of the Gaines family. What she did not know was that that monument turned out to be to a part of my family lineage from my maternal grandfather's family. The genealogy listing went back to the mid-1600's, and right in the middle was this inscription: "Richard Gaines, Revolutionary War Minute Man.". I cannot accurately describe what Holy Spirit began to drop into my spirit in those few moments.

Needless to say, this encounter began a season of seeking the Lord to discover what He was trying to speak to me regarding being a part of a company of "Kingdom Minute Men." This journey is just beginning, but I felt it was time to begin sharing what I am discovering, and invite you to begin a dialogue with you in hope that the Lord will birth a greater clarity of God's call for us to raise up a company of Kingdom Minute Men across this nation from state to state.

The following information was taken from a Wikipedia site and it provides an amazing picture for us to consider for this hour of revolution for the heart of this nation.

"They (revolutionary leadership) recommended to the militia to form themselves into companies of minute-men, who should be equipped and prepared to march at the shortest notice. These minute-men were to comprise one-quarter of the whole militia, to be enlisted under the direction of the field-officers, and divide into companies, consisting of at least 50 men each. The privates were to choose their captains and subalterns, and these officers were to form the companies into battalions, and chose the field-officers to command the same. Hence the minute-men became a body distinct from the rest of the militia, and, by being more devoted to military exercises, they acquired skill in the use of arms. More attention than formerly was likewise bestowed on the training and drilling of militia." [Source: Sparks, Jared: The Life of George Washington, page 134-135. F. Andrews, 1853]

As a specialized force within the Body of Christ that need to be mobilized quickly and kept informed and prepared for special initiatives, and kept employed in ongoing activity to stay sharp and prepared for speedy deployment to action, we are faced with a need to recruit, train, position/assign to "battalions", fortify the troops, and develop means of clear communication that alerts, rallies, and mobilizes the troops into their positions at a moments notice.

As modern day expressions of the King of King's messengers or couriers releasing the decrees of the Lord to mobilize the people of the King's domain to be prepared for what is coming and to mobilize the social militia for quick response and rally the troops for concerted efforts across the land....Will we answer the call and determine to pay the price to be the Kingdom Revolution MinuteMen in this crucial hour in our nation?

Expanding Our Horizons of Faith

L'Shanah Tovah!

At this beginning of the Biblical New Year, I pray for each of you the richest blessings of the Lord that draw you closer into communion with His majesty and into a place of knowing the wonders of His glory as He finds a place of welcome in your heart to tabernacle with you.  And, I pray that this year, as we surrender to His Lordship together as One New Man, that His dwelling among us will increase in manifestations of His grace, love, glory and power.  He is looking for a people among whom He might tabernacle in fullness, and I pray that among us He might find such a place prepared for His majesty.

As I sat down to write this email the phrase "Expanding our Horizons of Faith" exploded within my spirit as a word I sense from the Lord as a call for us to lift our gaze up and look again.  This is a call to not just look again the same way we've looked before but to look again in a new ways.
Consider these possibilities as you "look again":
  • Look Higher
  • Look Further
  • Look Deeper
  • Look Broader 
  • Look Around 
  • Look Above
  • Look Beneath 
  • Look In
  • Look Out 
  • Look Beyond
These all point to looking in a new way and even to looking beyond what we may have seen in the past.  Perhaps, our view has been blocked by difficulties and challenges, or by fears, doubts and even unbelief.  Or maybe the view has been limited by past failures or disappointments, by circumstances that seem insurmountable or by perceived dangers that trigger paralyzing fear.  Or perhaps, the Lord is simply've looked in faith and you have seen amazing glimpses of what I have in store for the days ahead, but look again there's still more . . .

Whatever the case, the Lord is asking us to look again and allow Him to expand the horizons of faith for this new year.

Expanded horizons to see our cities, our states, and our nations fully awakened by the Spirit of the Lord and moving in power toward reformation of every arena of culture.  Can you see it?  

Expanded horizons to see family members, friends and associates come to saving faith and to live as radically sold-out disciples of the Lord Jesus. Can you see it? 

Expanded horizons to see relationships restored and broken-hearts healed.  Can you see it? 

Expanded horizons to see the Victorious Church arise to the place Christ intended to rule and reign with Him through worship and intercession, and to bring His Kingdom to bear on earth as it is in heaven. Can you see it? 

Expanded horizons to see believers walking in the fear of the Lord in all holiness, joy, reverence, and love, and demonstrating His grace in power with signs, wonders, and miracles confirming the testimonies and preaching of the Word of God.  Can you see it? 

Expanded horizons to see Christ's high priestly prayer of John 17 answered with genuine unity among those who believe - oneness with the Lord and with one another, with each joint supplying what is needed causing growth of the whole in love (Eph 4).  Can you see it? 

Expanded horizons to see masses of people coming to faith -- the harvest fields that are white unto harvest being brought in for the glory of the Lord.  Can you see it? 

Expanded horizons to see financial provision for you & your family, for businesses and ministries to provide for the fulfillment of the dreams, visions, and purposes of the Lord to advance His Kingdom and establish His covenant on the earth.  Can you see it? 

I encourage you to meditate on Isaiah 60 and invite the Lord to Expand Your Horizons of Faith!
We have several upcoming opportunities planned for us to join together to have our vision expanded for what the Lord wants to do in this season and to join our hearts together in worship and intercession for His Kingdom to come and His will to be on earth as it is in heaven!  I hope you will make an effort to join us.  And, if you would like us to come to your community to help facilitate a gathering for worship, prayer, teaching, or encouragement, please let us know.

For His Glory,
