Here is a short comment on the prayer day that we were privileged to be part of on the 28 of February 2009.
It is clear that when a nation’s values become corrupted God has to “uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow,” before he can “build-up and plant” (Jeremiah 1.10). That is what is happening in Britain and the whole of western society today.
It was a significant prophetic event that now desperately needs an apostolic implementation. The various prophetic words that were given there now need a place for gestation.
As usual and unavoidable the direct competitors of this emerging apostolic age are the cry for more old-fashioned religious and evangelistic activism, more and even more prayer activity to serve the ‘church-as-we-know-it’ based vision of revivalism. Who needs, however, revival, if we can have the Kingdom? God’s plans are far, far greater than a return to revivalistic patterns; it is the modeling of the Kingdom in the area of a kingdom shaped church, and from there towards revolutionizing family, education, culture, business and politics to reestablish a model nation, a city on the hill. Only that will be able to build an authentic platform to re-engage and thus re-evangelize Britain with the Gospel of the Kingdom.
A kingdom revolution is at hand. Who willingly will shoulder this?
Who of those within existing structures are ready to realign towards Kingdom accuracy?
We need both revolutionists and reformers who will readily put aside their own self-agendas to see “your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven“.
