This is PART 2 of the Firehouse and the Purple Pig. If you haven’t read Part 1, or you just want to refresh your memory, CLICK HERE. This is probably a good idea since it will give you context for what follows. There is something very sovereign around this Fire House revelation and God seems to be giving very specific clues. That is the only way I can read what I am about to tell you:


THE FIREHOUSE AND THE PURPLE PIG - PART 2


LOU ENGLE, DICK EASTMAN AND THE 16-CHILDREN

In February of this year, at Mott Auditorium in California, Lou Engle spoke and gave an historical account of the prayer movement he started named The Call. The Call is a massive Solemn/Sacred Assembly that has been held at various stadiums and venues around the world. Here is what Lou said in that meeting at Mott:

“In 2004, I was in Colorado doing the 50-days and 50-nights of prayer and fasting and I had a profound dream. In this dream, I am sitting in the living room of Dick Eastman, a major prayer leader in the 60s, 70’s, and today. He launched a 24/7 House of Prayer in Sacramento [The Fire House]. I am in his living room with Willie Walsh, the woman who has supported me and who has been my benefactor and helped me to launch The Calls. In the dream, Dick Eastman is radiating the glory of God and I think it is God, but it is Dick Eastman. We are in the presence of God. Dick says, “Take a walk with me.” Brian Kim is walking with us. Dick says, “My wife was a strong woman. She gave birth to 16-children (Roundtable of 16?).” Then I left them all and went a little further and he began weeping and groaning in intercession.”

“Then I woke up under the Spirit and I felt like the Lord say to me: “The prayer movement of the Call sprung out of Dick Eastman’s living room. It came out of the prayer movement that birthed the Jesus Movement. In fact, they had a house in Sacramento where kids would come and give a year of their life to prayer [and evangelism]. I want to believe for a House of Prayer movement in California. I am believing for a prayer movement to come out of Dick Eastman’s living room that is going to birth the greatest soul winning that we have ever seen!”


CONNECTING THE PIECES AND SOME CLUES

I don’t believe this dream is random. It makes a direct connection with Dick Eastman’s Open Vision in 1971 about the Firehouses and ties together the Sacred Assemblies, the 24/7 House of Prayer, The Church, Evangelism and Revival/Reformation. It connects directly to the Jesus Movement (CLICK HERE to read the Dick Eastman open vision contained in Part 1 of this series).

I believe it is these three cogs turning together - The Church, the 24/7 Houses of Prayer and the Sacred Assemblies - that will give us the break through we seek. I believe the Sacred Assembly is the feeder to make the 24/7 prayer model a reality in our state and others and can help identify voices of both evangelism and revival/reformation for the Church and for the culture. The Church and the Houses of Prayer are the stewards of the Assemblies!

As your read in Part 1, these Fire Houses were in ‘every town’ and they “started rather than put out fires.” Also in this open vision, the Lord told Dick Eastman that these Fire Houses were “a missing link for world revival” and “would involve a movement of intercessors.”

That gets my attention! As I mentioned previously, I don’t think the fulfillment of these words was realized in the 70’s and I believe we might be on the precipice of the beginning of their fulfillment as a large and diverse community of believers each supplying what is lacking! God is reemphasizing this Fire House word, that is clear to me.



THE PRESENT DAY 24/7 HOUSE OF PRAYER AND THE JOSEPH COMPANY

I believe Brian Kim in the dream above is relevant since it ties in with the fact that he is one of the directors of the present day 24/7 International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City. This community has been praying 24/7 these past 10-years and they are currently experiencing a powerful move of God. I believe there is a direct connection between these two 24/7 prayer houses in two different locations and generations: one in Sacramento, one in Kansas City, one in the 70’s, one today.

Willie Walsh is another key since she is the financier for The Call, which speaks to me of the Joseph Company, which is necessary to help finance and give wisdom and ‘know how’ to pull all of the pieces together to help make 24/7 a reality in our state and help establish the Quarterly Regional Sacred Assemblies (RSAs) in California, and perhaps beyond. This is a massive undertaking and the administrative and financing anointing will be needed to get to our destination. The Joseph company also stands in a role of ‘sitting before kings’ in the political realm.



THE ‘ROUNDTABLE OF 16’ AND THE ”16 CHILDREN’

Another striking element of the dream is the reference to the ‘16-Children.’ Now, you never know when it comes to numbers, and who knows if it has anything to do with what I am about to tell you, yet it struck me when I heard it. I have been trying to figure out why God took me to Sacramento for these past 6-months, especially since I live in Southern California. I believe part of the reason was for this Fire House revelation and being in the land where it was birthed.

The Regional Sacred Assemblies are powered by ‘Roundtables of 16’ called the ‘Roundtable of Friendship.’ Sixteen is a very unusual number and when the Lord began speaking to me about this Roundtable of 16 about two or so years ago people used to poke at me and say, “Why not 12? There were 12 disciples. Yada, yada, yada!” My response was, “I dunno.”

I felt the Lord tell me the Roundtable of 16 was to be multi-generational, multi-ethnic, multi-gender, multi-stream that would power and maintain the quarterly Assemblies in each of the eight city/regions. This Roundtable concept would be later confirmed in a very powerful way through a word given by Chuck Pierce in 1998 called the 8-Hub word, which I will discuss in the next e-mail. This is a pinnacle word for these Assemblies and I believe ties in directly with this Fire House word

The friendship part was given to me in a dream. Here is that dream:

God can’t help but come when the brethren dwell together in true unity and friendship! Honestly, if we don’t have the true bonds of love and friendship, we will be undone when the enemy comes in as the accuser, and he will come.



MIKE BICKLE ON STAGE AT THE CALL SAN DIEGO ON 11-1-08

About three-quarter of the way through The Call in San Diego, Mike Bickle of IHOP said the following from the stage:

“A young lady came up to me in a Sacred Assembly with a big smile on her face and handed me an ancient wooden box. I opened it up and inside of it was a very old cologne set. On each of the cologne bottles was written the word ‘FRIENDSHIP.’ The Lord said, “The Fragrance of Friendship will power the Assemblies!”

To me, the fragrance of friendship is the key to unlocking the fullness of the anointing God has promised.

“Solemn Assemblies touch the Heart of God. These prayer events are catalytic. What we are doing today is effective in some measure, just the 12-hours in and of themselves. But more is going on today than just this. Events like this stir up the holy imagination of God’s people. The reports we receive is that many people receive courage, their holy imagination is stirred up and they begin to have Solemn Assemblies in their colleges and in their high schools, and in the marketplace. Events like this beget more and more events like this—although smaller ones—throughout states and regions.”

“The benefit of this event in and of itself for 12-hours is wonderful and powerful. But what is going to happen in the lives of many here who will go from here and host local ones, we can’t even begin to measure the impact of that over decades. When a nation is in crisis and there is no remedy, God says, “Call a Solemn Assembly.” Out of these events, people get courage to start their own prayer ministries, whether an hour, a day, a week long, or 24/7 or whatever. They are spawned out of events like this.”


It would be the day after The Call in San Diego that Lou would approach me at a Post-Call reception and personally bless and endorse the Quarterly Regional Sacred Assemblies (RSAs) I had been talking to him about them for about the past 3-months by that point (please note that I am not under The Call umbrella).

Lou would tell me during our conversation that it was when he was on stage with Mike Bickle in San Diego and when Mike began talking about the Assemblies from the stage was when the Lord quickened to him about these quarterly Assemblies. I honor and respect the spiritual heritage of The Call and Lou and have said it many times that I would not know what the Sacred Assembly is part from The Call.

This word from Mike Bickle spoke to me for several other reasons as well. It was at The Call in 2003 in Pasadena, CA where I would see the Solemn/Sacred Assembly in action for the first time and where I would be totally wrecked. This would be where my journey for these Quarterly Regional Sacred Assemblies (RSAs) would begin. As a direct result of this Call, we eventually began holding Sacred Assemblies at Cal State Long Beach, the second largest campus in California next to UCLA. It was really from these Assemblies that the concepts and the working out of the vision for the Quarterly Regional Sacred Assemblies was fomented.

These Assemblies we are doing embody ‘Pray, Fast, Go, Speak’ due in large part to the influence of the campus work I have done and the power I have seen the Assemblies have to break things open. Ultimately, the mandate of the Assemblies is to help break open the heavens with prayer and fasting over regions and to raise up voices in order to reach souls and begin to break the matrix of secular humanism over our society holding a generation in bondage (think of the fasting/praying Apologist of the 1st - 3rd Century). It is my belief that in time these Assemblies will be held on the multiple university campuses in California and will be directly connected with the regional Assemblies in a symbiotic manner.



IN CLOSING

There are specific elements of Dick Eastman’s vision that directly and keenly relate to the Quarterly Regional Sacred Assemblies and I don’t think it is a coincidence that God dropped this in our laps at this juncture in time. I want to highlight again some of the parallels that stuck out to me:

  • True 24/7 Houses of Prayer / Fire Houses springing up all over California with the Assemblies acting as a feeder for them.
  • There will be an emphasis—not just on prayer and fasting—but there will also be a sovereign move of evangelism and powerful voices of Reformation being released into our culture - ‘Pray, Fast, Go and Speak!’
  • There will be a merging of the generations, as well as a merging of 3 specific cogs: The Church, the Houses of Prayer and the Regional Sacred Assemblies
  • Holiness will be our joy again
  • This stirring will break out in multiple communities within California simultaneously - i.e. the 8-City/Regions of the RSAs and perhaps beyond
  • As Dick Eastman was told, and maybe, just maybe, ‘Hundreds will join the ranks as the marching begins. A Revival/Reformation will follow in the wake of our marching!’



I believe God is laying out clues for a real revival/reformation in California (and perhaps beyond) and they are becoming hard to ignore. It seems that for so long it has been like the movie National Treasure where we have been searching for clues and we think we finally have found the master clue that will lead to the world’s greatest treasure and then it just leads to another clue, then another, then another and we never quite make it to the treasure. For the first time in my 22-years of walking with the Lord, I really think we are almost there to lay hold of the treasure, which is Jesus in His true Glory and the Revival/Reformation we seek for the sake of souls!

Anyone game? We need your help!

If you know of a place that can seat at least 500, can you please let us know. We would be very grateful!

Also, we will need lots of help in EVERY way imaginable (Prayer, Logistics, technology, worshippers, monetary, etc) to pull off these Assemblies. If God puts it on your heart to put your hand to this, please contact us. This will be the year the cogs begin to turn in our state.

Please RSVP on our Facebook Event page for the quarterly, Regional Sacred Assemblies (RSAs) so we can get an accurate head count and keep you abreast of any changes since there will be some.
