London-Longing for Revival: “OCCUPY Till I Come”

The GPH3 TEAM—during the final training and preparation meeting

“There is a great cry for revival.—for the voice of God to be heard. . . For the church to rise” Much of Europe has witnessed a church on Her knees. It has Fallen from the glory days of the reformation but not to Prayer. People are hungry for truth and for those who are willing to take a stand for holiness and righteousness. What do we do when the nation’s leaders are no longer defender of the faith but defender of faiths? Likewise in the USA we have stopped being a nation under one God who proclaim “in God we trust” but we look to create a safe space for all beliefs. In order to right the wrongs and clear the path of righteousness not just (rightness in the eyes of man) we will need a radical Christianity. Futurist have proclaimed that Christianity will take a back seat as other religions and faiths take a stand and demand their voices be heard.

Historic Westminster Abbey

The twenty-first century will be a period of challenge and change for Christianity in Western Europe and North Amer- Pastor Esenam at House of Commons ica. Theological, political, demographic, and economic developments will force the church in these countries to make unprecedented compromise to be accepted by the masses. It is predicted that we will become those who tickle the ears. We say not so. At Global Projects we plan to take a radical stand for the glory of God. In the face of adversity we plan to rise from the ashes as a sweet smelling aroma unto the Lord, proclaiming His name and for His Kingdom to come.

Pastors Brooks and Carr covering the team and it’s leader Dr. Sabrina Black in prayer for the mission to Europe. The Global Projects team assigned to preach, teach, and reach the masses in Europe were: Elder Paula Ratchford Minister Jennifer Worthy, Minister Monika Miko and Dr. Sabrina Black. These women know what it means to “Occupy until I come . . “ They have been laboring to advance the Kingdom of God by warring in prayer and being equipped to serve on the front line.

We will occupy until he comes. God has charged us to take the Gospel to those who are lost, to confront in love those who have gone astray, to build up and counsel those who have fallen and to develop the next generation of leaders. We must be defenders of the faith. Where there has become a separation between church and state we need to remind the state of our need for the church in order to change the dismal prediction for the future of the state. Believers need to infiltrate every phase of life from education and industry to commerce and politics. We need to be the voice of God among the people. We need to pray (I Chronicles7:14), seek the face of God, open our mouths and proclaim His name. Join us as we respond to the cry for revival. Your gifts, talents and abilities can make a difference. We are all called to be missionaries. Join us on the field and on your knees.

Big Ben (Letting us know -It is time) The USA is filled with many store-front churches on every other corner. Europe is filled with beautiful cathedrals and historical architecture. No matter the size or the magnitude it is important to remember that we are HIS building. Our bodies are the temple of the living God. Pastor Esenam in partnership with Global Projects is actively involved in rebuilding the temple, restoring lives and reclaiming the sanctuary.

Over the years we have been to the prime meridian (above left) which separates the west and east; as well as to a point of. the equator (while in Uganda) that separates the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere.

GREAT Things to do While You Occupy We have been instructed by Jesus to "Occupy till I come" (Luke 19:13). But how are we to be occupied? People are occupied doing many things; even good things. But are we doing the GREAT things of God. As we wait on the Saviors glorious return we can follow the Great Commandment to Love and the Great Commission to Go and make disciples. When we go in love we lead others to Christ through the plan of salvation. We are clear that evangelism is our supreme task. When we go in love and encounter those who know Him we help to build them up in the faith. Jesus gave this instruction to His disciples in Acts 1:8, "You shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Let the Church rise and occupy til He comes. We are the church, the people of God. We need to rise up and let the Lord use us as His witnesses in the Earth. Our director, Pamela Hudson declares that we should rise and proclaim the testimonies of God’s goodness, mercy, grace, power and favor! We are walking in the manifestation and fulfillment of God’s promises in our lives. God is allowing us to have a greater impact in the earth as we rise and occupy til He comes. The Word declares that we will be blessed in the city and the field, when we come and when we go. We expect GREAT things from a GREAT God.
