which, according to the Webster’s New
American Dictionary, means “to unite
or merge into one body.”

But since I am not a woman of a few
words, or just one, I have to explain to
my fellow brothers and sisters in
Yeshua Jesus that Ecclesia 2008 was
icing on a spiritual cake for me! On the
Friday night before, my husband and I
went to the movies to see “10,000 B.C”
and for those who haven’t seen the
movie and desire to, I will try my best
not to give it all away.

The Lord blessed us by showing us
the idea of Ecclesia in this movie as
peoples of different tribes, colors,
races, and languages all came
together to “free their people from the
one who had set himself up in a
temple as the “Almighty One.” Just as
Satan thru sin keeps people in
bondage, this Almighty One had done
the same; sending warriors from place
to place to steal, kill, destroy, and
plunder and return slaves to build the
temple for him. But there had been a
prophecy that there would be one who
would be able to speak to the ‘spirit’ of
the animals and unite the people
together to defeat this “Almighty One”
who seemed to have all the power.

The coming together of these different
people groups in this movie was
replayed before my eyes as I watched
the praise dance teams, and Rabbi
Carlson speak, and the other pastors
from different churches; even those of
leadership rose to speak that night. I
confess, I am grateful that the Lord had
my husband with me on this night,
because I probably could not have
contained the jubilance I felt. It is a
difference when the Lord blesses you
with an understanding of His vision,
but to see it manifest in the physical
realm, knowing it was spoken by Him
to His prophet in His spiritual realm
causes such an increase in faith that
even the faith becomes unexplainable.
I believe if we, that attended and
believe that the Lord is moving us to a
place of “amalgamation,” tell it to
others, then Ecclesia will spark a flame
that will burn thru the divisions and
walls that keep us from completely
uniting as One New Man.

ECCLESIA 2008- What a marvelous time had by all to
truly come together as one community, one body in
Christ and experience REVELATION 5:9-
And they sang a new song:
"You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased men for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation.

It was indeed an honor to be in the midst of what our
Father is doing for our community.  We are excited
about taking our promised inheritance back!

It was truly a blessing to worship with so many other
believers from various backgrounds, ethnicities and
denominations at Ecclesia 2008.  I recall the Lord’s
instructions to me about preparing the sanctuary for the
worship event.  I was specifically commanded to push
all of the chairs up against the wall so that we could
worship in the center of the floor together.  Additionally,
I was commanded to place a table at the altar.  On this
table, I was to light 7 candles on a golden candela-
brum, place loaves of bread on a golden plate and
burn incense on the table as well.  At the foot of the
table, the Spirit led me to lay my sword and shield.  
song about Jews and Gentiles being one in the
Messiah, the dancers grabbed the hands of almost
everyone else there, and we all danced together.  Had I
not moved the chairs, there wouldn’t have been
enough space.  Next, the pantomime dance ministry of
Iglesia Cristiana Oasis de Vida (Oasis of Life Church)
ministered a song about returning to God and coming
to His golden altar.  When the words about the golden
altar were sung, they all turned and pointed to the table
God had commanded me to put at the altar.  Then, the
song continued to sing about us being built for war
(hence the sword and shield at the foot of the table).  
It was so clear to me that the preparation of the
sanctuary for this event had been essential.  The last
song ministered in dance that day sang of the
anointing of God being present in the sanctuary.  It truly
was and everyone felt it.  The worship led by the two
ministries ushered in the Spirit of God in a mighty way,
and we all ministered to each other, prayed together,
danced together and ate together as ONE IN HIM.  
Thanks to everyone who was involved!
