Prayer Fortress Details
When I heard of the Prayer Fortress concept several years ago from my friend, Frank Blalock, I knew God would use me to help move this project to the next level. I have thirty-one years of construction experience and could see that this project would be a designer and contractor marvel. The intricate detail received by my friend through the Spirit proved to me that this project is something God could use in these days. I am a firm believer in detail. From many references in the Bible you will find that God answered in detail. Not only in construction of the Tabernacle for example, but He will answer in detail as He did to Cornelius in Acts chapter ten.
Let's review a passage of scripture to understand what I mean about detail. Acts 10:3-6 (KJV), 3He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 4And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. 5And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: 6He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
Let's start our short study from Acts chapter ten with verse three which states that Cornelius had a vision at a specific time. Then in verse four he is told why he is receiving this vision containing a message from God. In verse five more specific details come by the message and lead into verse six. Cornelius was told to send men to Joppa (the place) and call for a particular man by the name of Simon. Not just any Simon, but whose surname is Peter. He is living with another Simon who is a tanner and lives by the seaside. This man Simon Peter is the one that will tell you what you must do. There was no confusion on which Simon would bring the message and which Simon in Joppa owned a specific house. The details were better than most directions you get from leadership in churches and in the corporate arena. The directions told which man to call, which man he lived with and his occupation, location of the house, and which man would speak to Cornelius. Interestingly enough, there were two Simons, but God's message included very specific details to assure that the correct Simon was summoned. This is only one example of many details scripturally and of individuals that have received personal messages from God through the Holy Spirit. When God gives this much detail as He did in Acts chapter ten He desires to do something on a grand or God scale. In this particular chapter the details led to the Gospel being spread to Gentiles, which informed the Jews of God's intent to offer salvation through Jesus Christ to Gentiles as well as the Jew. Thank God for the details that led to this event because I am a Gentile!
I received in my spirit concerning the details of the Prayer Fortress that God desires to do an amazing thing not just through prayer, but through the power of corporate prayer. There are so many examples in the Word of God about the People of God coming together in corporate prayer that resulted in great things happening. For some examples read 2 Chronicles 20:1-25, Acts 13:2-4, 1 Kings 8:11-61, 1 Chronicles 29:10-20. My point is that God has a desire for His people to come together in corporate prayer as they did in the upper room and to see the great things that He desires to do in the Church. The Revelation of Jesus Christ given to John was full of detail concerning a seven year period before Jesus returns to the earth. The Bible is full of details from construction plans to civil laws and in many messages from the throne room of Heaven.
With all the details in the pictures, the virtual tour, and the written descriptions of the Prayer Fortress a team of designers has enough information to design this project with complete specifications and stamped drawings ready for construction. There has already been a tremendous amount of accumulated hours in research on sources around the world to locate construction materials needed to construct a project of this nature. I understand the importance of each piece of building material in this project for what it represents in the prophetic. The details included, which were received through the Holy Spirit, reflect the prophetic significance of this project in its entirety. All the main components of the Prayer Fortress point to God's promises for His people that are fulfilled and to those that will be fulfilled when we obey. With Old Testament and New Testament prophecies represented in the construction itself, the significance of the Prayer Fortress and Prophetic Center can be recognized.
You can be a valuable asset in making the Prayer Fortress a reality. We are developing contributor incentives to offer to those that would like to contribute toward the construction of this project. You will be updated on any new developments with this project. We are in the process of starting to raise funds to acquire the land and to start the design process. The location of the Global Prayer Fortress and Prophetic Center will be in the Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina in the United States. Just as there is no spiritual power within a prayer cloth or anointing oil, there will be no spiritual power in this facility. They are only symbolisms, which activate the faith of people. As faith is activated because of the prophetic representations and the corporate prayer emanating from the Prayer Fortress, changes will be produced in ourselves, families, churches and nations.
