REVIVAL IN AMERICA, ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS
"If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
INTERCESSION - WORSHIP - LOVE - KINGDOM UNITY
In the United States of America we have a rich spiritual heritage, as do other nations in the world. In America's beginning, "We come for the advancement of the Gospel and the Kingdom of Jesus Christ" the London Company declared as they landed in Jamestown, Virginia on May 14, 1607. Their first act upon arrival was to commemorate the Lord's Supper together. In 1620, one hundred three pilgrim settlers landed at Plymouth "having undertaken for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith voyage." In 1701 came William Penn to Pennsylvania with his Charter of Privileges to govern "a holy experiment." In 1777, George Washington knelt in the snow near Valley Forge, interceding for his army and beloved country. Yet present-day historians are systematically removing historic evidence of our Christian foundations from national parks, monuments, memorials, landmarks, and historic churches. WHAT ARE WE CHRISTIANS DOING ABOUT THIS IN PRAYER? For example, in 1986 two stained-glass windows were removed from historic Christ Church in Philadelphia - one depicting our founding fathers worshipping God in their family pews and one portraying all 56 Congressmen at the first convening of Congress on September 7, 1774, prostrating themselves before the Lord in prayer!
Our Declaration of Independence is a charter which acknowledges God as Sovereign over these United States. Our Constitution is a "federal" or covenantal constitution. In the Bible, covenants were used as a means of showing mercy and giving protection to someone who did not deserve it. James Madison understood this. Yet over and over, throughout our history we have been self-destructing. LET US REPENT OF THE IDOLATRIES and all breaking of covenants in our land, reaffirm our covenantal foundations, and worship the true Sovereign of these United States. REPENT!
Today, spiritual fathers in America see God desiring to continue using America to open other nations to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to keep these nations open. This is possible because we have experienced cycles of awakening in our own history. In the first "Great Awakening," God used John Wesley, George Whitefield, and Jonathan Edwards to bring conviction of sin throughout the United States. Then God's power through Charles Finney, the "holy radical", in the second Great Awakening broke the back of a religious fatalism which had settled over the land. In 1857 suddenly came a revival where people were hungering for the "second blessing" which Dwight L. Moody preached in the power of holiness and compassion. During the 20th century, God has blessed us with the Azusa Street revival (contemporary with the Welsh Revival), healing revivals with many miracles, Jesus movements, charismatic renewal, and much renewal in the churches open to Holy Spirit, such as Brownsville Assembly of God, the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship, The River at Tampa Bay, and other places, too.
In all the reviving works of God, fear of the Lord has fallen like a blanket over whole communities. God has a KAIROS time for every outpouring of His Spirit. The essential prerequisites for revival are LOVE and OBEDIENCE TO GOD WITH KINGDOM UNITY as we intercede and worship to our God. The spirit of revival is the consciousness of God in both His power and His holiness. There is fresh emphasis on the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. Supernatural manifestations are seen everywhere as God answers the apostolic and the prophetic Christ-centered teaching by His fire. Superabundant blessing follows as believers assemble for such a time as this. Let us today yield our hearts totally to God, to our Heavenly Bridegroom Jesus, and Blessed Holy Spirit so that we in our turn may be changed into more anointing and holiness to be end-time light carriers for His Glory, then from glory to glory to intercede and worship as we come into Kingdom Unity for such a time as this.
Please contact me by email if you will be interceding any of the time during each week. God is waiting on us for such a time as this. This is a vision the Lord gave me, and I would love to know how many of you will join me and Joan Ann Warnell Ministries. This is a commitment you are making to Him by your e-mail you send to me to be counted for your time with Joan Ann Warnell Ministries Kingdom Unity of Intercession - until we see revival in America, Israel and THE NATIONS for such a time as this.
Article I. What Is an Intercession Group?
What is a Joan Ann Warnell Ministries Missions Intercession Group? It is a group that gathers together to INTERCEDE for REVIVAL in America, Israel and THE NATIONS, just as Esther interceded for her people and Deborah went to the battlefield. Just as God's prophets warned the people of the things God planned to do. Just as Moses led the Jews out of Egypt, for we have come to God's Kingdom for such a TIME as this.
JAW Missions' vision is to raise up Intercession Groups of people who, among themselves, contribute 168 hours of prayer per week, effectively covering every hour of every day of the week in prayer. Joan Ann Warnell Ministries Missions welcomes you to begin an intercession group in love and unity in your area for such a time as this.
The prayer emphasis is to break the strongholds which exist and to specifically intercede for God's people to repent so souls will be saved as they see the Love of God through the Church's vessels who carry the Glory of God. When this occurs, there will be GREATER CHURCH UNITY for His Kingdom on earth to be as it is in Heaven. Our vision is to build as many Intercession Groups as we need to usher in REVIVAL AWAKENING with repentance and refreshing till holiness fills the world as love and obedience to God begins.
Article II. More Prayer Awareness
Most of the Church will agree that the battle for the nations is never won without love and unity with a combined effort of intercession to God.
JAW MISSIONS has several prayer initiatives. Some cover a small town or large city, county, state, or nation, as we go to the nations to see souls brought into God's Kingdom. Some have a vision to bring churches together in prayer concerts. Others have opened up prayer towers for surrounding churches to meet together and pray. Some have met to have church together, and more. Joan Ann Warnell Ministries' vision is to have groups of intercession doing these things in America, Israel and the nations.
One thing Joan Ann Warnell Ministries knows for certain is that intercession in any nation is not a club, but a combined effort by Christians to draw near to God and seek His face through REPENTANCE AND WALKING IN LOVE WHILE AWAKENING, REFRESHING, RENEWAL and REVIVAL see God's Glory cover the earth.
The "Contact Us" bar at the end of this page will be your contact with us as to how you can respond to Joan Ann Warnell Ministries President Joan Ann's vision for such a time as this.
Article III. Why We Need Your Help
If there is no one interceding, whom will God hear?
The advantages of an Intercession Group are:
1. A multitude of individuals and groups interceding in unity reap the benefit and power of agreement in prayer, and God loves our worship. Matthew 18:19: "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven."
2. Those who work odd hours or are housebound with young families, etc., are enabled to intercede in agreement with others interceding during that same day or night.
3. The Church involvement encourages unity and brings about strong relationships that will nurture revival in America, Israel and the nations.
4. Every move of God is ushered in by the faithful prayers of God's people. Church history proves this, and we must make history again for such a time as this. America, Israel and the nations need to be awakened with renewal, repentance, refreshing, and holiness to see God's Glory cover this earth.
REVIVAL IN AMERICA, ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS
When men, women and the youths cry out to God by interceding in unity with love and obedience to God in their lives as all wait on God even into the early morning hours, WE WILL HAVE REVIVAL in our lands.
AMERICA, ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS WILL HAVE REVIVAL. God is our covenant-keeping God Who fulfills His Word. Many times in past Church history, when people got hold of the HORNS OF THE ALTAR OF GOD to intercede and did not let go, then THEY HAD A MIGHTY OUTPOURING of God moving on behalf of men, women and youths who had cried out to Him.
We are headed into one of the greatest moves of God the world has ever known in its history.
As a body, TODAY WE NEED TO GET HOLD OF HIS PROMISE - AND THE TRUTH THAT HE IS A COVENANT-KEEPING GOD WHO WILL FULFILL HIS WORD.
Please be a part of His remnant church. Live in HOLINESS with prayer as you walk in love among the unlovely. Meet often and wait on Him. Get free of religion. Get into relationship with God.
GOD LONG AGO GAVE US A COVENANT PROMISE FOR REVIVAL. You can go to His Book of promises, THE BIBLE, and read about it in 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." (NKJV)
Make your covenant right now with God to repent and to be holy, and seek Him to change you. DO NOT STOP TILL YOU SEE REVIVAL as souls by the millions turn to Jesus Christ as their one and only Savior.
