In military and police work the term “Staging Area” is used to describe a location designated where intelligence, personnel and materials are assembled in preparation for a coming campaign or assault. Personally, I have stood in actual staging areas where my SWAT unit received scouting reports and assembled the equipment and personnel needed to initiate a response. The same thing is taking place around the nation, not in a police or military sense, but with like-minded spiritual warriors who realize the tactics of the past will not help us breech the door of deception that holds our nation captive. We are in a moment of our history when we need to hear a fresh word of revelation for the coming mission.
This summer, a number of us have been invited to meet in different locations in unadvertised private gatherings with other leaders from across the United States. These meetings will become spiritual staging areas. Each gathering has a full spectrum representation of the five equipping gifts Paul mentioned in Ephesians 4. We are coming together to hear from God in the areas of reformation, theology and leadership. These gatherings will receive revelation from God that will equip the Church for the next season of ministry. Along with an equipping will be the creation of a tactical response that God will use to rescue people and nations held captive to the delusion and lies so many have wrongly assumed will be their new and a painful lot in life. These gatherings are not advertised online, in the media or in magazines. They are under the radar in preparation for a surprise attack that will take the enemy off-guard.
As I write these words, I see points of fire breaking out across the nations of the Earth. These fires will be ignited by what takes place in these staging areas. Do not pass up a invitation to gather with other like-minded believers to pray and believe for more. These gatherings have the potential of becoming a supernatural staging area of the Spirit.
Get ready to experience the power of an Acts 13 gathering where the expanded destiny of the Church was revealed as people waited in worship before the Lord. In the historic meeting that took place in Acts 13, and in meetings that will take place in the coming months, fresh revelation will be released that will become a pre-operation briefing of the Spirit. The assignments birthed from the precise revelation revealed in these meetings will expand the focus of the Church revealing new frontiers of ministry as it did 2,000 years ago in the city of Antioch.
