Global Presence recently hosted a Great Lakes Gathering called "FORWARD" with Dr. Dutch Sheets and Dr. Chuck Pierce.
5 states from the Great Lakes Region and 119 cities were represented by those in attendance. From the unified sound of worship, to the prophetic words and teachings, the Word of the Lord went forth in power, and it has not stopped.
This is a marking movement for the Ekklesia in this region. We are rising up, with one voice, and we will see the Kingdom of God be established here as is in heaven.
So many calls, texts, and emails have come in from those who were at the FORWARD Gathering, saying what a powerful time it was. We asked people to submit what revelation they had received regarding the region. Here are some excerpts:
"The Forward Gathering highlights for me:
"The teaching by Dutch on how to be aware of the religious spirit, and how the prophetic counteracts that was powerful."
- Mike B.
"I had the sense that the meeting space on March 9-10 was full of those ready to cast their nets out and CONNECT in a new way for Kingdom advancement. There is so much to share about the wonderful meetings, but here is one thing that stood out: Chuck decreed that the DAM HAS BROKEN!"
- Joan T.
(Regarding the number of cities represented)
"119 means spiritual perfection and victory."
"The light was so bright as we worshiped, and God was saying, 'Keep going. I will open the doors of heaven. I have made room for everyone.'"
- Terri R.
"Vision at the closing of the FORWARD GREAT LAKES GATHERING
Steven and Rene Springer called to the platform all participants age 29 and younger, and they came. As they stretched across the platform…
I saw this generation at the the crest of a wide wave, shoulder to shoulder, arms extended - ready for battle, united and 'at the ready' - mounted on what appeared as metal shields (where one might expect a surfboard) on one large wave which stretched the whole length of the platform and vision. These boards were 'not made by the hand of man,' says the LORD. 'These have been forged in the FIRES OF THE TRIALS OF THE GENERATIONS THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE, AND THEY WILL NOT FAIL - YOU MAY FALL, BUT GET BACK ON - FOR THESE WILL NOT FAIL YOU - AS YOU RIDE ON THE WAVES OF MY GLORY AND MY RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THIS HOUR.'"
