Verse 1 Sound the trumpet in Jerusalem[a]! Raise the alarm on my holy mountain! Let everyone tremble in fear because the day of the Lord is upon us. 2 It is a day of darkness and gloom, a day of thick clouds and deep blackness. Suddenly, like dawn spreading across the mountains, a great and mighty army appears. Nothing like it has been seen before or will ever be seen again. 3 Fire burns in front of them, and flames follow after them. Ahead of them the land lies as beautiful as the Garden of Eden. Behind them is nothing but desolation; not one thing escapes. 4 They look like horses; they charge forward like warhorses
This scripture, I believe, represents a powerful image of what is happening with our Young Adult community here at The Tabernacle. The scripture references the army that has not been seen before, powerfully moving as one with the spirit of God all around them. All summer we have been pressing into leading a generation to follow Christ, and praying and contending for revival to take place in our young adult community. It has been so encouraging to see a group come together who is willing to lay all else aside to take a stand and live their lives for the Lord. As we begin this new season, we are emphasizing 3 new core values for our community. 1. Pursuit - This means we are on a constant pursuit for the presence of God in all we do. 2. Connect - We believe we are here to be a part of what God is doing in the earth, so we form relationships and make commitments to advance his Kingdom. 3. Tribe - We believe we are called to walk out Acts 2 biblical community with each other. We walk in unity and are on a mission to see Heaven brought to earth.
Would you join me in praying for this incredible group of Young Adults that have come together here at The Tabernacle? I am believing revival for this generation is coming and we will see the promises of God come to life.
