Ground Zero Worship – Olney
Over the last several weeks (especially during the Global Spheres and Head of the Year meetings in Corinth), the Lord began to very strongly impress on us the need to begin to carry out the prophetic word that Chuck Pierce had given TXAPN leadership at our 2011 council retreat. We were instructed, at the Lord’s timing, to hold ten worship services throughout the state which will cause the dismantling of the thrones of iniquity.
On April 21, 2007, over one hundred leaders and intercessors (including Apostles John Benefiel and Jay Swallow of Oklahoma and Apostle Sandy Newman of Kansas) gathered at Olney, Texas to render the initial divorcement of Baal decree in Texas. The Lord had prophetically decreed that “all knees shall bow at Olney.” We did, and a horrific drought that was hovering over all of North Texas was devoured within the next month.
The Lord has been impressing on me that we need to begin our ten worships at Olney as we begin the eighth year (new beginnings) of TXAPN. And once again the area around Olney is strangled by an exceptional drought that didn’t even blink at the great rainfalls we have had in the area the last two weeks.
I was amazed, when looking at this week’s drought monitor (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx?TX) that the area around Olney, at first glance, looked similar to the logo used for hurricanes (whirlwind) on a weather map. Olney is two hours Northwest of Arlington on Highway 199/114 and about an hour south of Wichita Falls on Highway 79. In talking with TXAPN Rolling Plains Coordinator Merrie Cardin, we tried to determine a date to revisit Olney. We tried to invite some of the original attendees and the dates were hard to come by. We were surrendering to the fact that it might not happen until January. BUT as I awoke on the morning of October 17, and after looking at the drought map, the Lord brought an urgency back to my spirit. I shared with Merrie that the Lord brought to mind the word He gave to David in 2 Samuel 5:22-25.
Now the Philistines came up once again and spread themselves out in the valley of Rephaim. When David inquired of the Lord , He said, “You shall not go directly up; circle around behind them and come at them in front of the balsam trees. It shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then you shall act promptly, for then the Lord will have gone out before you to strike the army of the Philistines.” Then David did so, just as the Lord had commanded him, and struck down the Philistines from Geba as far as Gezer. It was important to listen for the Lord’s strategy and to move when He said: “move.” We revisited the calendar and came up with Sunday, October 26 at 3 PM. Glory of Zion in Corinth will help provide worship.

The Lord has been decreeing His life and light. He is exposing all things. He is "lifting the skirts" of the enemy. He is bringing everything under the examination of His piercing light. There is no shadow in Him.
"For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He sees all his steps. There is no darkness or deep shadow where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves” (Job 34:21-22).
“The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in Your presence as with the gladness of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil” (Isaiah 9:2-3).
“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow” (James 1:16-17).
"The Lord is whistling. On the anniversary of Kennedy's death the Lord decreed life, jubilee, and freedom. He is shaking the heavens and earth. The hornets will be sent out before Him to expose and uproot the enemy. He will loose the shackles that death has held over Dallas, the State of Texas and the Nation. Decree life. Blow the whistle of The Lord. We are in Jubilee!" (Tom Schlueter, November 23, 2013
