The Door is Open - East
November 22-24, 2013
Montreal, Quebec

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, 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 with a passion for the pursuit of God’s glory and 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 programs or accomplishing a vision above relationships with God and within the Body. Discouraged and disillusioned, many have simply “checked out” – either physically (by leaving church 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 our generation 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 God-given mandate. The Lord released a vision to us of a door that was firmly closed and electrified. A Gen Xer came to the door and trying to open it, 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 Gen X– the door is now open!  And if a remnant of Gen Xers in Western Canada will answer My call to gather before the end of the summer, the door will open for the Gen Xers in Eastern Canada too."

In obedience to the Lord, a remnant of Xers, joined by believers from every generation, gathered in Edmonton August 22-24.  As we journeyed with the Holy Spirit He led us in worship, prayer, declaration and prophetic acts.  In the last session of the gathering, we entered into a time of intercession and sowing for Gen Xers in Eastern Canada during which we shared about a possible small meeting of Gen Xers in Montreal in the fall.  After the meeting, so many people began witnessing that the Lord was calling them to Montreal that we realized this was more than just a small meeting.   We believe the Lord is releasing a call to Gen Xers from Eastern Canada, joined by Xers from the West and believers from every generation to gather in Montreal , November 22-24.  Together, as one family we will worship and venture with God through the open door as He reveals His heart to us.  

With love,
