As I began to unravel the layers of rhythm, echoes and effects this record really started to speak to me as something special. Proceeding to infinity is chaotic, syncopated, spacious, and almost stressful to listen to until a soft melodic pad comes in and washes away any anxiety and replaces it with wonder.

Three months earlier, several churches in Mombasa began fervently praying for these concentrated days of evangelism. During the two weeks of the crusade, a different church prayed all night each night.
John Franklin joined one of the all night prayer meetings, praying until 7am when he went to bed. He woke up four hours later and felt the presence of God in his hotel room so strongly that he did not rise; he simply slid out of the sheets to his knees in prayer. That day following that prayer meeting, John said every single adult they witnessed to trusted Christ.
No one rejected the Gospel. Franklin and the others in the crusade made a big discovery in that crusade: The revival that came to this city happened because of the prayer meetings of God's people. If you think I am exaggerating the issue, then you were not with us two weeks ago when we cracked open this neglected subject of prayer together.
I made some conclusive statements that God has sovereignly ordained the corporate praying of His people, such that His mighty workings increase exponentially and His purposes are accelerated when we pray together. We surveyed the NT and found a pattern of high priority when it came to praying together. One writer, after studying the NT pattern of prayer wrote, "The Early Church didn't have a prayer meeting. The Early Church was the prayer meeting.
In fact, in the Early Church, every Christian was a prayer-meeting Christian. We took a brief glance at history and found the same priority. Edwin Orr, whose research on revivals forms an authoritative study, concluded this, "No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer. I am calling all who are believers in this place to hear from the Spirit of the Lord in this matter.
We need a renewal of prayer in our church, among those who lead and serve in the various ministry areas in the church, as well as those who presently aren't involved beyond simple attendance.
To fire you up for this, I take you to Revelation 8, an utterly astonishing passage of Scripture that hurls us to the closing days of history.
John, the writer of Revelation, tells us of the things that must take place. And in the midst of earth-shattering events, there is this amazing pause in heaven, and a lesson about prayer that is so staggering that if it weren't in Scripture, I wouldn't believe it. Look at what John describes:. He was given a large amount of incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the gold altar in front of the throne. There is an amazing connection here between the prayers of the saints and the end of the time.
The gathered prayers of God's people are portrayed here as the instrument God uses to bring this world to its appointed consummation. Let's break this down carefully so we can fully grasp the enormous importance of praying together, of corporate prayer. Verse 1 opens with a reference to the opening of the seventh seal of a scroll: When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. To understand what the seventh seal is all about, we need to go way back to the beginning of Chapter 5.
That Chapter opens with these words: 1 Then I saw in the right hand of the One seated on the throne a scroll with writing on the inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. The enormous significance of the contents of this scroll is such that no one in heaven-not the six-winged cherubim that continually declare God's glory; not the resplendent Gabriel, God's special messenger; not even the mighty archangel Michael, God's heavenly warlord--was strong enough or rightly qualified to open the scroll.
What was this thing in the right hand of God that caused the high and holy in heaven to shrink back when it came time to serve? John knew the contents of that scroll.
We're told in Chapter 4 that John had been brought up into heaven "in the Spirit" and promised that he would see "what must take place after this"-that is, after the Church Age is over. John had the unparalleled opportunity to see how it will all end, how the final years of world history will play out, when all that God had promised will come to be.
Which means that the scroll, sealed seven times to insure its secrecy, was the unfolding of human history. It's opening would enact the final chapter for this world and those who live in it. It was like a living map for THE finale, when all things would be brought to their consummation under the purposes of God. That scroll must be opened, and God had purposed that someone other than Himself administrate the end of time.
But when the call went out-Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals? God has ordained that someone other than Himself administrate the end of days.
Verse 3 suggests that this invitation extended to every known realm of existence, seeking anyone who would take up the great scroll. And the search produced no one. John begins to weep loudly, thinking that his hope of seeing the end of history would be denied.
What John doesn't understand is that this delay is intentional. The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has been victorious so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals.
In fact, as our Lord walks to the throne to take the scroll from His Father's hand, the Bible says the 24 elders that surround the throne, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints, fall down before him. Jesus alone has the royal right to open the seals of history and oversee its final unfolding, because Jesus died, and in dying He ransomed a great multitude of saints from all the nations, and He has made them priests and established them as rulers of the earth.Mar 14, · The first chapter of this trilogy 'Devotion - Part 1' represents the start of the journey, entering a dimension that is abstract yet solid and physical, full of vividly distinguishable details.
