Prophetic Word: God Is Radically Changing What Christian Conferences Look Like

by | Feb 28, 2018 | SpiritLed Living

I see Christian conferences becoming convergence points for the ekklesia to assemble and do business in the heavenly realm. Convergence zones.

I heard the Lord saying that conferences will become council room appointments for the ekklesia—for the body of Christ to come together to: 1) Hear from heaven, 2) declare what heaven is saying through prophetic intercession and 3) become doers and implementers of what heaven is revealing.

It’s easy to get negative towards Christian conferences—but I sense the Lord calling us to prophesy solutions, not just call out problems. It takes a critic to call out problems; it takes a prophetic voice to hear or see into heaven, receive a supernatural solution, and then declare it, calling the church up, not just calling the church out.

Out without up is poor stewardship of the New Testament prophetic operation. Calling people out without calling them into something can quickly become critics abusing the church, which Jesus is staunchly against.

I see us entering a new era for Christian conferences—and I believe a prophetic invitation is going out to pastors, leaders, apostolic networkers, and anyone who has any role in putting on a conference.

The invitation is outstanding. God wants to bring His ekklesia together, not to be fed and entertained through the most popular preachers or hit worship leaders. It’s not about what we get in this season; it’s about what we accomplish as one voice. I sense the Lord urging the church to unify, hear from heaven and get something done!

The blessing of the Christian conference is that it gathers. It converges multiple streams and various denominations.

Joyce Meyer gathers.
Passion conferences gather.
Propel women’s conferences gather.

I prophesy that conferences shift and become apostolic gathering points for the ekklesia to collectively hear what God is saying, and then take their place as the friends of God, that the entire body of Christ would be ushered into the counsel of the Lord, hear what’s on His heart, give voice to the purposes of God in the place of intercession and then go forth mobilized to implement “Will of God, be done!” in their respective spheres of influences.

We cannot continue the way we have been going. If we really want to see cities, regions, and nations shift.

A conference will not change a city; a unified ekklesia will.
A conference will not transform a country; an interceding ekklesia will.
A conference will not impact history; an activated ekklesia will.

And I sense an urgency from heaven on this. It can start now! Today! God is not at all saying “Stop having conferences!” Rather, He is desiring to radically change the purpose and end-results of our conferences, and bring them into new kingdom dimensions of impact and transformation.
