BEFORE WE CAN GO, WE MUST BE SENT

John 15:5 says “He who abides in me and I in him bears much fruit, for without me, you can do nothing.” God has great plans for this generation, there are great exploits to perform, injustices to be righted, but this adventure has to begin in the secret place with God, in the place of communion with Him. Before we go on mission with Him, we must first learn to abide in Christ, to hear His voice. We need the Holy Spirit to teach us and remove entangling sin from our lives. We need Him to tell us who we are, and to send us out on mission.

The Northfield Student Conference is an opportunity for students to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ and to discover and grow in their callings.

We want to get away for five days with like-minded believers to be with Jesus together, as His family, in a beautiful place where we can commune with God and with one another. This gathering is sponsored by many different ministries in New England who are working in unity. There will be amazing men and women of God there from the New England region, fathers and mothers who want to come along side you in your journey with the Lord.

DL Moody and the Student Volunteer Movement

In 1886, 251 young men gathered for the first Northfield Student Conference. At the end of the conference, God had supernaturally broken in. 100 of the students committed themselves to world missions and what became known as the Student Volunteer Missions Movement was born. In a generation, this movement sent 20,000 missionaries overseas. Their watchword, “the evangelization of the world in this generation”, was a cry to fulfill the Great Commission in their lifetimes.

In 1886, a movement was born with a dream that every person on earth would hear the gospel. They died without seeing the promise—this is an invitation to join in and, Lord wiling, be part of completing their story. It’s simple: We need to know Him, sit with Him, learn His ways and His heart. Everything else will flow out of that. Join us this July 23-28 for the Northfield Student Conference.

Make Disciples

Before He ascended, Jesus left His disciples with this mandate: “Go into all the world and make disciples of all peoples…” Nearly 2,000 years later, that mandate remains unfulfilled, with an estimated 3.1 billion people in 4,500 people groups on earth who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. As followers of Jesus Christ, we all have a role to play in seeing Jesus’ Commission fulfilled.

We believe it is time to finish what the Volunteers began, to raise up a new movement of college-students who will give up their lives to see the Lamb of God receive the reward of His suffering. Building on the legacy of the past, we see on the horizon a new Student Mission Movement to bring to completion what our forebearers began.

By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation.

Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People?

We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity.

We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God.

We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer.

And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

William H. Seward, Secretary of State.

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend 2018 – March 16-17

During Restore and Revive on the DL Moody Campus last October, God visited us in a powerful way on the night Chuck Pierce ministered. Chuck returned to Boston for “The Turnaround” 22 city tour with Dutch Sheets in December. At that time, we sensed God leading us to invite Chuck once again for mini-conference in Boston to declare into what God has already begun to do in the New England region. This event marks a half-way point between the 2017 and 2018 Restore and Revive gatherings in Northfield. There is no registration required for this gathering. Hotel discounts are available.

Here is an excerpt by Chuck Pierce from the December 17th Boston gathering (22 city tour Chuck and Dutch Sheets) :

“Here we are in Boston, the 21st city of this tour and God is saying: ‘I’m ready to start bringing down the principalities that’s been holding back the next move of God.’

And most importantly, in Massachusetts, where He is saying: ‘I’m ready to remove the constricting band that’s been on my covenant plan of this Nation.’ I believe that’s why we’re here.

Now with this, I see a whole NEW BREED rising up. A breed that’s ready to go through this gate. I see three generations aligning and this call to see change occur.

We’re moving from a church mentality – which is a mentality of building – into a Kingdom mentality, which is a mentality of unlocking. And so we want to see an unlocking occur like we’ve never seen before.

So let me summarize the year for us: This year is linked with: gates, doors, angels and war. It’s also linked in with a wealth dimension we have not known. That’s another reason we’re here in Boston. When you know the history of this city, you know that it was one of the cities that determined the wealth factor of all of America. I believe we are here to say: Lord we want to see the generous power that You’ve put within Your people. Through Holy Spirit. Get unlocked so that the enemy flees. The enemy will flee through our generosity this year. So this becomes a very important time for us.

This year is about the power of the first.”

Chuck Pierce – October 1st, 2017 – The Moody Auditorium

“For Many have prayed, others have travailed, others have decreed and I say to you you have gathered to restore and bring into fulfillment that which has been sent into heaven and now I am beginning to pour out.

I say this night fulfills and this night begins saith the Lord. I say: this will be the beginning of that which causes a nation to awaken again.”

“Lord, we say right now: we know You have come down!

Lord, we say right now in New England: You have a remnant people realigning this nation back with Your Nation. Lord, you have a remnant people that are worshiping and causing the reproach that has been on a nation to roll off.

God is using you to roll off the reproach of this land.

This is like a dream. It’s like when the people came out of captivity. They said it was like a dream that had occurred. You have no idea. This is like a dream like all of the sudden God is coming down and restoring the covenant of this land for this movement.

And I say to you this is now being deemed a movement not just of restoration, but a movement of awakening that will sweep through this land.

And I say: If you will worship from month to month in New England, the root will be restored, and the fruit of this nation will once again come alive.

I say: The things that never would bud, the seeds I would blow on again, saith the Lord.

I say to you: you have gathered my people in this region under a portal I ordained and from this gathering you will see harvest. A harvest will be seen like never before. I say to you: I will send the sounds of harvest from David’s tabernacle that I am holding before me. And I will send them down to the earth realm. And from New England, it will be said: the tabernacle of David is being restored.

I say to you tonight: You have aligned. You have opened up. And now, I say, there is an interaction from heaven that will empower you, give you strength. And what I tell you to accomplish, you will bring it forth, saith the Lord.

Let’s give a shout and thank God for what He’s doing.”

10 Days CT - 960x540Fire Falling – Year 5!

The 10 Days initiative has been birthed in a visionary call from the Lord to his church. Every year until the Lord returns, on the ten days from Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur, the Lord is calling his people to unite in worship and in repentance and prayer to see His kingdom come to our needy communities and to speed the Lord’s return to our troubled world.

God is wooing his Bride to set aside the 10 Days of Awe (Sep 20th Feast of Trumpets to Sep 30th Day of Atonement) and come dwell with him.

Have you ever wondered what time God calls his Church to act on 2 Chronicles 7:14? You wouldn’t be wrong to say “all the time”! But, the time of the 10 Days of Awe biblically was a “set-aside” time for God’s people (Israel) to stop their normal routines and:

1. Seek God’s Face
2. Humble themselves
3. Repent from there wicked ways; and
4. PRAY!

And the promise of God? He will:

1. Hear from heaven
2. Forgive our sins, and
3. Heal our land

If we can understand it, there are special times during the year where we sense God’s presence or His anointing a bit more strongly. The feasts of the Lord are such times. There is a time to plant and a time to reap. Passover and Pentecost (spring feasts) focus on the Lord’s first coming and the fall feasts (Trumpets through Tabernacles) point to His return and the Harvest.

This year, the 10 Days gatherings will be held at various locations around the state from September 20th-30th. Visit impactconnecticut.com for the full schedule and promotional resources. The final nights, September 29th & 30th, we will be joining believers from across New England for Restore and Revive in Northfield, MA. You won’t want to miss these significant gatherings.

It’s not too late to find out “What is 10 Days all about anyway?” and get involved, even host an event!

10 Days Summit CT September 18th Facebook event page

We have watched this National movement grow the past few years as more and more cities and states have “signed on” to the vision, including Uganda, Africa. Last year we saw the Holy Spirit’s fire fall across Connecticut in unprecedented ways including: Bridgeport, Hartford, Bristol, Waterbury, Greenwich and more. We also joined our brothers and sisters throughout New England culminating 10 Days at the DL Moody Campus. This type of unity gathering hasn’t happened for nearly 100 years! It was awesome.

“Babylon refuses to mourn, but My people will mourn before My return”

  • Are you eager to see the Lord’s hand move mightily in the state of Connecticut, and indeed our Nation?
  • Do you believe the Spirit of Revival is already here?
  • Is John 17 unity “Let them be one as we are one” part of your DNA?
  • When you see tragedy strike or unrighteous rule, do you long for the Lord to intervene?
  • Do you think the whole state needs to know: “God so loved Connecticut that He gave His only Son. Believe in Him and you shall not perish!”?
  • This year, from September 20-30th, let’s seek the face of God together for the great state of Connecticut!

Impact Connecticut is excited to trumpet this vision and support this initiative. Gatherings for worship, prayer, and repentance are planned all across our state during these 10 Days.
