The Door Is Open!
August 22-24, 2013

Edmonton, Alberta


After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven.
And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said,

“Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1

Every generation has a mandate – a divine purpose that is hidden in the heart of God until the appointed time comes for it to be revealed and established in the earth. 

Generation X (born c. 1965-1979) was created by God with a passion for the pursuit of His glory and a longing to see the hearts of the fathers and sons turned toward one another.  Wired for reality and relationship, they carry a mandate to see the Church restored to God’s original dream:  a Presence-filled family whose intimacy with the Father and unconditional love for one another transforms the Church into a homing beacon for a lost and dying world. 

Until now, Gen Xers have been scattered and mostly voiceless in the Church because they have struggled to connect with Church systems that seem to value  program or accomplishing a vision above relationships with God and within the Body.   Discouraged and disillusioned, many have simply “checked out” – either physically, by leaving churches and ministries or the faith, or emotionally, by attending but without really engaging their hearts.

But God has not forgotten Gen X.   At the beginning of 2013, He began to speak to us that the destiny of Gen X is coming into collision with God's timing and this year marks a turning point to see the restoration, repositioning and release of Gen X into our mandate. In a gathering in February, the Lord released a vision to us of a door that was firmly closed and electrified, like an electric fence.  A Gen Xer came to the door and tried to open it, but instead received a shock.  Surprised, he pulled back. A few moments later he tried again – and got another shock.  This scene kept repeating until, dejected, he withdrew and stood away from the door, uncertain what to do.  Then the scene changed and now the same door was slightly ajar and no longer electrified.  Then the Lord said, “This is My word to the Gen X in this season – the door is open! The door is open! The door is open!”  Then the scene changed again to a group of Gen Xers who we knew were gathered in Western Canada.  As they stood together suddenly a door opened over their heads towards Eastern Canada.

We believe a door is now open in heaven and that if remnant of Gen Xers  will answer His call to come together and wait on Him, He will take us through that open door begin to reveal “the things which are to come.” (Revelation 4:1)

In obedience to the Lord, we are releasing a call to Gen Xers, and any one from the older and younger generations who carry the same heart, to gather in Edmonton, August 22-24.  Together, as one family, we will worship and venture with God through the open door as He reveals to us the secrets of His heart.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edmonton this August!

With love,

The Awaken Team
