Ending 2018 in a Divine Moment
ONETHING 2018: “RESET”
December 28-31, 2018— Kansas City, USA
At the close of 2018, we were invited to partake in a divine moment of the Father encountering His Global Family. As believers from around the world gathered at the "Onething" conference in Kansas City, in response to God's call for a reset at IHOP-KC (International House of Prayer), we were welcomed into our Father’s living room where He met us face to face and heart to heart. We quickly realized we were standing in a kairos time and it had become a global reset for the whole Body of Christ. We were all deeply moved to see such beautiful surrender and humility before the Lord, as the IHOP-KC family opened their hearts and invited us into their journey of returning to the heart of devotion to the Lord and devotion to one another as one family.
We encourage you to visit the IHOP-KC Onething archives to join in with what the Lord did during this powerful time. You can also browse through our Instagram and Facebook accounts for photos, quotes, and highlights.
IT’S TIME FOR THE GREATER LOVE
This kairos moment in time at Onething ushered us into 2019, which we believe is the year of the manifestation of "The Greater Love", a love the world has never known, between the Bridegroom and Bride, between the fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, the one true Family of God. We are forever grateful to the Lord for IHOP-KC who has opened up the way for the Global Body to enter into this appointed year, setting the tone for this new measure of love the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are wooing us into.
THE TABLE OF COMMUNION
Psalms 23:5 — “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.”
Song of Solomon 2:4 — “He brought me to the banqueting house, and His banner over me was love.”
This year, the Lord has prepared a table of communion for His Global Bride, and He is inviting us to come meet Him at the table. It’s a table of perfect union with our King and Lord. It is time for extravagant love, the kind displayed by Mary of Bethany as she sat with Jesus, taking in every word from His mouth, every ounce of His Presence, and pouring out all her love at His feet. It’s time to come back to the first and greatest commandment, to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind (Matthew 22:37). The Lord is marking us again for pure, whole-hearted devotion to Him.
The Lord has also prepared a table of communion for His Family to come to one another in love and devotion. He is giving us His glory and covering us with His banner of divine love, birthing in us and through us a new measure of oneness the world has never seen. This will remove the veil over the eyes of the world as they see the manifestation of His One Family, His One Body.
John 17:22-23 — “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
It is time to welcome our Lord as He comes as a good and righteous judge to remove all the things that hinder divine love from binding us together as one. Mantles, ministries and anointings will marry one another for the sake of His glory and His kingdom. And this manifestation of the one Global Body and the one Global Bride, starting this year, will usher in the next decade and prepare us for what is to come.
