I had a vision three years ago. I saw seasoned leaders with large reputations and big anointing standing in a circle holding hands. Each leader had someone of the millennial age sitting on their shoulders and they were also holding hands. There was a commitment to the future being made by the younger generations to partner with each other against all odds while honoring and working with the elders.
My young family is preparing to go back to Israel after 7 years of living. I was 30 when we first moved to Israel, my husband younger than that and my daughter was eighteen months old. We were so excited at the end of 2010 to take on such an adventure. I was naive. I had no idea that conflict with enemy territory and rumors of war would become part of our life. I didn’t know that I would react in some of the ways that I did. I had no idea that rockets launched from Gaza would cause my windows to rattle and that I would began to loose my mind and become completely emotionally unwound to the point that I would eventually have no bottom. I didn’t know that other nations would help terrorist in Gaza smuggle rockets the size of telephone polls over the border and fire them at all the major cities in Israel. I had no Idea that two of these rockets would one day blow up directly over our home in Jerusalem!
I had no Idea that someone could live in such a state of war but at the same time be so committed to it. I didn’t know that even after everything that we’ve been through in Israel that even after 7 years we would still wants to be there. I didn’t know that I would one day call Jerusalem home. I never thought that I would say that it’s the most romantic city on earth. I’m still surprised that even with all of the comforts that I can choose to have in Texas that I keep choosing Jerusalem. For all of us this means that we must submit to our individual callings regardless of what our obstacles and discomforts might be!
Over the past several months we thought we were done. We weren’t sure that we would go back to Israel again. Then, one morning all of the sudden the desire began to grow in our family to go back. Our home church, Glory of Zion Ministries agreed, prayed for us and prepared to send us back. Justin Rana who has grown up in the church, leads media and worship felt impressed by the Lord to call our generation to rally around us, send us out. They prophesied over us and committed to pray for us. The vision that I shared above is coming to pass. The millennial generation has come to maturity and will now produce a fruitful harvest!
God is releasing a new call over our generation that we are excited to be a part of and we look forward to seeing it mature in this season. I believe that key relationships are strengthening in a way to define covenant as God has ordained it in our time.
At the Passover conference at Glory of Zion in April, I saw very clearly that circumstances would not become easy strait away after Passover. I saw that God would be cutting many things out of the body over the fifty-day period as we pressed toward Pentecost. We are almost there. In just two weeks you will have stepped into to a whole new glory!
