From Halloween to ALL SAINTS DAY!

20 10 2008
EVE OF SAINTS

On October 31st, 2005, a couple of brothers and I prayed fervently that God would remove the Halloween celebration from the gay district of San Francisco (Castro). At the end of our time of prayer, I sensed that the Lord would grant our request and He prompted me to prophetically declare this breakthrough, which I immediately did.
The following year, on October 31st, 2006, I was discouraged to find out that the Halloween celebration was continuing in the Castro as usual and I asked the Lord, “Why is this happening Lord? Didn’t I hear from you?” That morning, a brother in the Lord wanted me to watch a movie with him about Martin Luther and the Reformation. The movie ends with Martin Luther nailing his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the All Saints’ Catholic church on October 31st. We had no idea that this date was so significant in the history of the church, but I immediately sensed that the Lord was trying to communicate with me. I said, “Lord, what’s going on?”
The Lord then prompted me to look up the origin of Portola, which is the name of the district in San Francisco where I live. Through an online search, I found out that Gaspar de Portola discovered the San Francisco Bay Area on October 31st, 1769. Then I knew the Lord was speaking! Later that week, I had a dream where I distinctly heard “10/31” and “1906.” As I prayed into this stream of revelation, the Lord gave me a word about an apostolic reformation for the church, which I sent to some key leaders in the San Francisco prayer movement:

“God is going to shake the halloween spirit (10/31) off of this region and bring us into a holy reformation where He’s going to reveal His glory in the saints (All Saints Day/November 1st) from the Golden Gate of San Francisco to the Golden Gate of Jerusalem (uttermost parts of the earth, fullness of the gentiles, one new man- Isaiah 62, Ephesians 2:15-22). It’s about the fullness. 1906 is significant as well in this stream of revelation; as you know, it’s when the Asuza Street revival broke out in LA and the great earthquake and fire hit San Francisco. This time revival is coming to San Francisco, but not without shaking. It will go around the globe from this place and continue until the Lord’s return. God chose the foolish things of the world to confound the wise… San Francisco is destined to be a city of glory!”

The next year, in 2007, God removed the Halloween celebration from the Castro District through an official decree from Mayor Gavin Newsom. I knew this was the first stage of this word coming to pass. And to top it off, on the evening before Halloween, there was a 5.6 earthquake in San Francisco! The following night (October 31st), I was celebrating the effective removal of the Halloween spirit in the Castro with the Justice House of Prayer team as we worshipped and praised the King of glory!

God shook the Halloween spirit off of the Castro District of San Francisco in 2007, exactly 490 years (70×7) from the day of Martin Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses. Now He’s bringing us into an apostolic reformationan “All Saints Day” now! Ephesians 4:11- “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”

We are on the precipice of the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit and it’s at hand NOW. We are in a Psalm 133 moment where the Lord commands the blessing of salvation in our unity. Where unity has been impossible for man, it is possible with God. There is great grace available for the unity of the Holy Spirit to manifest now. The most necessary ingredient for the consummation of this promise is FAITH! We must believe that there is grace for what God requires of us right now and it truly is the unity of the Holy Spirit, together with all the saints.

THE GIANTS ARE OUR BREAD!

One of our greatest sins is when we make the giants big and our God small. This sin provoked God to judge the children of Israel so that those that gave the evil report and those that believed it would not enter into the Promised Land. Psalm 95:8-11 “Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, as in the day of trial in the wilderness, when your fathers tested me; they tried me, though they saw my work. For forty years I was grieved with that generation and said it is a people who go astray in their hearts and they do not know my ways. So I swore in my wrath, they shall not enter my rest.” We mustn’t doubt our God with a wicked heart of unbelief nor should we fear the intimidation of our enemy in our day of visitation. We are not the ones backed into a corner, as it may seem. We must remember, God waits until the Egyptians with all their forces are at our backs and the Red Sea is obstructing our path to reveal His mighty right arm. IT’S TIME!!!

God has poised us for a glorious breakthrough! This is a David and Goliath moment- although, unlike David of old, now it is the Corporate David (The beloved of God) that takes Goliath! It’s time for us to rise up with one voice and say, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” Yet a house divided cannot stand and our enemy knows this spiritual principle. For too long, we have been duped by and content with divisions in the church. It’s time to believe God for the establishing of His house, a united house of prayer for all nations that He may take pleasure in it! It’s our corporate faith that will bring the lasting breakthrough. Revelations 12:11 says, “And THEY overcame him by the blood of the Lamb…” It does not say, “I overcame him by the blood of the Lamb.” 1John 5:4 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world- even our faith.”

THE DWELLING PLACE

David had a heart after God’s own heart and he established a dwelling place for the Lord where praise and worship never ceased. This was a type and shadow- an example for those who have a heart after God’s own heart to follow today. The Lord has blessed me with the leadership of a 9-bedroom community home called the Morningstar House in San Francisco and He recently has prompted me to dedicate and consecrate a room for the purpose of night and day worship and prayer- a place for Him to dwell. This will be a place for all the watchmen in our region to partner together and co-labor with Christ, our Chief Intercessor “from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” (Ephesians 4:16) We are taking the rest of this month to renovate and prepare the room and will be officially available for all believers starting November 1st (ALL SAINTS DAY) to come and participate in establishing a dwelling place for the Lord in the heart of San Francisco! IT’S TIME!

One in JESUS,
Adam
