The 24 Hour Bride… It’s time!

10 09 2008

Dear Saints,

This is Adam Hood, a local watchman for the San Francisco Bay Area and I have an urgent prophetic charge for the hour. Since 2005, The Lord has used me to activate and mobilize united regional prayer and has repeatedly spoken to me the past 3 years that it’s time to build a house that pleases HIM. (Haggai 2:2-8) During the 10-day ‘Until’ prayer event in 2007 (where approximately 40 congregations and ministries of varying ethnos and denominations united in prayer for 240 hours of continual prayer), the Lord brought me to Luke 19:42-46. God was warning me that we are in a day of visitation and that He is requiring and gracing the Church in the San Francisco Bay Area to establish His 24-hour house of prayer for all nations, as a priority NOW. Since that time, Isaiah 62 has been a directive word from the Lord for the San Francisco Bay Area to come into the fullness of its redemption and glory. Yet there have been many distractions and great resistance, which have temporarily hindered this vision from coming to pass.

Recently, there have been prophetic words about destruction spoken over San Francisco. Yet in the Scripture, God sent Jonah to Ninevah to preach judgment, but then relented as the Ninevites humbled themselves. God knows how to get our attention in a way that brings forth repentance and alignment with Him. We are in a season where we have literally been termed ‘forsaken.’ But the Lord says, in Isaiah 62,’You shall no longer be termed ‘forsaken,’ nor shall your land anymore be termed desolate, but you shall be called Hephzibah and your land Beulah, for the Lord delights in you and your land shall be married.‘ This promise is in the context of, and hinged upon, the watchman watching day and night, until he establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the Earth (Isaiah 62:6-7). This is about the global Bride of Christ, arising here in San Francisco (the end of the Earth from Jerusalem), the fullness of the Gentiles, and the One New Man, both Jew and Gentile united in the Spirit, as spoken of in Scripture(Isaiah 62:11-12). This is about the glory of God being revealed from the Golden Gate of San Francisco to the Golden Gate of Jerusalem, where the Lord will enter the temple and bring the ultimate consummation to this ultimate revival.This is about God’s fullness and it’s time!

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they did not love their lives to the death.’ – Revelation 12:11
This Scripture brings revelation of our corporate victory over all of the power of the devil. We now have bold access with freedom to the Father to hear His voice in sweet communion, and to co-labor with Jesus in the Spirit, that He may receive the full reward of His suffering. It’s true priestly intercession, where the blood was applied to the ear, the thumb and big toe of the priests, as a picture to us declaring our ability to hear the voice of God, to work His works and walk in His ways! It’s about the finished work of the cross. It’s about denying ourselves daily, carrying our cross and following Him. He knows exactly how to save His church, our nation, and the nations of the world. He doesn’t need our methods, models or help, but rather delights in our intimate communion and radical obedience. His blood is enough! Rejoice!

It’s the responsibility of the church in this hour to stand in our kingly and priestly role and to watch and pray like never before to prepare the way of the Lord! Verse 10 of Isaiah 62 says, ‘Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way of the people; Buildup, build up the highway! Take out the stones, lift up a banner for the peoples.‘ More than ever before, there are floods of distractions throughout the body of Christ. It’s time to no longer be children tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting (Eph4:14).
The greatest Goliath of the hour is the religious rebellion and spiritual pride in the church. The devil comes as an angel of light to deceive, even within our current Christian culture.
So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.‘ – Isaiah 59:19
God has been graciously waiting for His church to align in obedience to Him in this day of visitation. 2Corinthians 10:6 states, ‘…and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.‘ It’s His Kingdom come and His will be done or it will be shaken to the ground, and that right quick! (Heb 12:27-29) This move of God is not primarily about healings, signs and wonders, although there will be many. This move of God will be primarily identified by abiding in communion with the Father and radical obedience. In other words, ONLY DOING WHAT THE FATHER IS DOING (John 5:19). This accurate emphasis will birth authentic apostolic reformation with a sustained revival in its wake,like no other. It’s about hastening the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer in John 17, ‘that we may be one as He is one in the Father, so the world will know and believe…‘ This move of God is not like revivals of old, but will reveal and establish the church in glory with Christ as the head of the body, and will bring forth the greatest harvest of souls ever imagined!
‘This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek your face. Selah! – Psalm 24:6
King David was prophesying about this harvest of souls- that young and old, from every tribe, tongue and nation, that everyone together in this prophetic generation would seek His face. IT’S TIME!

It’s time to accurately discern the spiritual seasons that we are in and align accordingly. Isaiah 2:2 says, ‘Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills and all nations shall flow to it.’ Jesus named His house a house of prayer, and this is the place where He and His church will rule and reign from over all other mountains of influence. This is the spiritual season that we are in now and God is here brooding over us, ready to release it as we prioritize united 24/7 prayer, praise and worship. It’s time to make His praise glorious, and give God the glory due His name, for God inhabits the praises of His people! He is great and greatly to be praised and we should settle for nothing less than ‘on Earth as it is in Heaven,’ where He is ever praised! San Francisco will become a holy habitation for the Lord- a city on a hill for all the world to see.

There is an urgency- a ‘now’ grace for 24/7 united and corporate prayer, praise and worship to be established in our region. With this promise: ‘For thus says the Lord of Hosts: Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and the dry land; ‘and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of Hosts. ‘The silver is Mine, the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’says the Lord of hosts.’ Haggai 2:6-9

The pattern in Scripture shows that if the people of God corporately return and seek the Lord’s face in prayer, forsaking their own ways, that God is so willing to redeem and bless abundantly (2 Chronicles 7:14). Yet it’s not enough for us to just have prayer meetings- it’s time to build a house that pleases the Lord! It’s time for a holy reformation, starting with the altar of worship being established and the temple being rebuilt where all the tribes of God’s remnant join in the work.
‘You also as living stones are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.’ 1 Peter 2:5
Let those who have ears hear!

The Lord recently showed me in a dream that there are 3200 consecrated men and women ready right now for this great work. For God’s priority to be realized on our watch, we will need the glorious inheritance in the saints being released- this means you! This will require your prayers, your time and your heart, as the Holy Spirit convicts and leads you…
‘…to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places…” – Ephesians 3:10

The Lord has made it very clear to me that we are in the final countdown in the eleventh hour in this, our day of visitation… please do not take this word lightly! Please forward this clarion call to the saints in your sphere.
