The Truth In The Spirit
The Tidewater Region of America

Tidewater, VA is the birthplace of the United States.  From the first landing in
Virginia Beach in 1607 to the first permanent English settlement in this land at
Jamestown, the US was founded on the Bible and faith in God, right here in
Tidewater, VA.  As each city and county in Tidewater returns to its God-ordained
purpose (for which it was named), the region of Tidewater, VA will once again be
a physical sign to the nation and the world of God's dominion on earth!
Transformation in Tidewater, VA for Healing our Nation

The Books of Acts and Revelations make it clear that God wants His people to
live and serve in unity, and He looks at us not just individually, but also
collectively.  The letters in Revelations were not written to individual
congregations, but to cities, for all of the congregations in those cities.  As we
seek God to reclaim our nation, we must start first with our cities and counties,
then our whole region of Tidewater, to lead the nation back to Him.  Leadership
of the nation is the prophetic destiny of Tidewater, VA, that has been revealed
throughout the history of this nation and confirmed by national and international
prophetic voices coming to this area.

However, we have not arisen into our prophetic destiny to fulfill the will of God.  
We are called to unity and power in the Spirit.  Yet, we have used only a small
portion of the anointing that God has poured out upon us in Tidewater.  When I,
Apostle Markita Brooks, inquired of God about which of the letters in Revelations
most directly applied to the Tidewater area, He revealed the letter to Sardis.  

The Letter … to Sardis
“To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who
holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have
a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.  Wake up! Strengthen what
remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight
of my God.  Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it
fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will
not know at what time I will come to you.  Yet you have a few people in Sardis
who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for
they are worthy.  The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I
will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will
acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.  Whoever has ears,
let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”—Revelation 3:1-6

Ecclesia Arise
As the Bride is awakened from her slumber, she can arise to be the Ecclesia
(assembly of the called out ones) and join God in His work to make all things on
earth as they are in heaven.  The Truth In The Spirit has worked in uniting the
Ecclesia for years, and now God has charged us with helping the Ecclesia to
arise.  Will you join us!

Ecclesia 2013: Enter the Millennial Reign was the catalyst for Ecclesia Arise
Worship Experiences held throughout Tidewater, VA.  These gatherings
continue throughout the region, as well as Tidewater Ecclesia Network meetings
with pastors and believers in cities and counties in Tidewater, VA.

God calls this region “The Waters”*
because it represents the God-given
dominion that mankind holds in the
earthly realm.  As Tidewater, VA comes
into its purpose and destiny, the world will
see a living model of how the dominion of
man—when guided by God—can move
heaven and change the earth! There are
* in the heavenly realm as well.  
God desires that “The Waters”
* here on
earth (Tidewater, VA) would connect with
heaven to receive a wave of His glory into
this land!  It is not just for Tidewater; it will
mean the empowerment of God’s people
throughout the earth!

*Note:  To read about the separation
between the "waters" in the heavenly
realm from the waters here on earth,
read Genesis 1:6-10.
