“Thurrock will become another Eden.”

This is just one of the things to come out of the feedback from the 2014 Transformation Thurrock Tour. Do you belive it? Can you see it? Do you percieve it?

The 2014 TT Tour has now reached the summer. A part from a one stop at RCCG House of Praise on 9 August, there are no further presentations booked.

Since February, the TT Tour has been presented at 16 services acoss the borough. 13 of those visits produced a feedback sheet. The feedback consisted of thoughts and ideas arising from two principle questions:

  • what is God saying?
  • what are we going to to about it?

The TT Team have begn to scrutinise all of these sheets in an attempt to find the common factors that people across all of God’s church in Thurrock are hearing from heaven.

Our early findings can be summed up in these two ‘Wordles’. These diagrams were made of words and themes that appeared on the sheers. The bigger the word, the more often it appears on the sheets. What are the key words?

What is God saying?

What are we going to do about it?

The bigger the word, maybe the louder God is speaking to his people in Thurrock?

Here are some of the prophetic highlights for activation that stand out in the feedback:

  • TTTour sheets 21614 JPEGBe the opposite to dirty water – a refreshing fountain
  • Get out of the boat
  • Thurrock is his Promised Land
  • Break out of the comfort zone
  • Come out of the four walls of the church
  • Stand up – time is getting short
  • God’s light will shine on Thurrock
  • God is lifting the darkness over Thurrock
  • This place is going to develop
  • Thurrock will become another Eden
  • Make decisions for the spiritual life of the borough
  • We’re going in the right direction
  • Wake up!!
  • Go!

Our next task is to break down what was said by whom and where, and work out a Phase 2 Strategy, if you like, for intercession and equipping. So watch out in the autumn for the TT Prayer Tour and the TT Training Tour! Watch out for more on this.

Later this week, a number of people from Thurrock will be attending the two Glory to Glory Conferences with Bill Johnson at the North Kent Community Church in Ebbsfleet. ‘Stuff’ is happening just across the river from Thurrock… we want it here. But how do we know God wants it here? Because we want it here! … and we have the mind of Christ. It is the very Father heart of God that every man, woman, boy and girl in this borough have the opportunity to accept that love, shown through Jesus. Those of us who are going are prayerfully endeavouring to return with the supernatural power of a transformed mind, that heaven may invade the earth of our borough – so Thurrock may indeed become ‘another Eden’.

Where has the TT Tour gone?

I would like to thank every fellowship who have welcomed me and Vera into their midst and allowed us to bring challenging thoughts and ask challenging questions. It is not too late to have the TT Tour visit you – book us for the autumn.
