Report on Flow 60 and Halloween in Salem from Jonathan Friz

2009-12-15T20:14:07.539-05:00

On October 29-31st, prayer groups from around New England gathered together in downtown Salem, MA at Eastgate Christian Fellowship, to make a stand for Jesus Christ in the midst of the Halloween festivities. The gathering, called "Flow six-oh (60)" was forged out of a hunger for unity and designed to bring many ministries together from around New England for united prayer and outreach. In a happy stroke of Providence, the 60 hour event included the October "5th Friday". At Eastgate and around New England, we were flowing together in the Spirit. Most participants were younger, and included Jamie Dickson and a group from Maine, a YWAM team from Kona Hawaii, Ryan Weatherhead and a team from Connecticut, as well as many others. Although the 3 day prayer and outreach gathering began on Thursday night, we began 24 hour prayer with our 5th Friday gathering on October 30th. The sweet presence of the Lord was thick in the room as about 50 participants meditated on His love for us during the 5th Friday. I remember thinking how peaceful everything felt that night-God was stirring love for Him in our hearts-wooing us, bringing us to repentance, that was all. Even as we began to pray about Halloween, asking God for healings, deliverance, and salvation for the lost, there was a real sense of peace and rest. Love, peace, rest, faith, agreement with His word-these are the weapons of our warfare and I knew that we were warring in agreement with Heaven. What amazed me was that I did not really sense very much spiritual opposition. I was wondering, "Where's the spiritual opposition?" In hindsight, I see that God was establishing us in a place of confident trust, where our eyes were only on Him and we were completely confident of our victory with Him. We would need to be confident in love in order to take our stand for light in Salem on Halloween... Prayer went on through the night and into the next day. After checking out the Halloween crowds and another Halloween outreach sponsored by a church called The Gathering, I headed back to Eastgate. The prayer had been going on since I left last night, but when I arrived everyone seemed to be taking a break, getting ready for the night. Tonight, rather than concentrating our force in the prayer room, half of the participants were in the prayer room, half the team was ministering on the streets. In the prayer room, the difference in the atmosphere was tangible. First of all, in contrast to the previous night, I found it very difficult to enter into worship. At one point, I found someone sharing Scripture, the same Scripture I had shared the night before but in my mind I was saying, "yeah right, that's not true." How could I be denying the very thing I was preaching the night before? When this happened, I quickly came to my senses, realized I was under spiritual attack, and buckled in for a wild night of prayer. The opposition was fierce. It seemed I had to keep praying continually in order to keep pushing against the resistance we were facing. It was not scary or laborious, there was just an awareness that if I stopped praying and releasing the Holy Spirit, the enemy would begin to move in and overcome. I could also tell that others in the room were under the influence of the same heavy, lying spirit that had come on me at the beginning of the night. In response to these lies, we prayed out of Colossians 1 and 2, declaring the reality that Jesus is Lord over every principality and power in the universe, and that we were His representatives in this place. As we declared this truth, the air in the room seemed to clear, as if all of a sudden we realized that in Christ we could not lose. Meanwhile, on the streets packed with 100,000 revelers, we were beginning to reap the fruit of our united prayer and simple confidence in Jesus. Teams were inviting passers-by to receive prayer for healing and also to receive prophetic words. The teams reported close to 100% success in healing prayer. When I first heard what they were saying, I did not believe it. I had never seen that[...]

I pray everyone out there is really enjoying the holidays. It’s been interesting going into different stores and meeting friends, wondering what holiday greeting they will give me. The other day in a store they had a display that said “Wishing is the reason for the season.” Like, “right in your face Jesus”. I wish I had a marker to cross it out, but that store has more franchises that I could attack with a marker in a lifetime, crossing out wishing and tagging Jesus. They should stick to making caramel mochachinos and hiring ex bums. But then there are other times you meet someone, who with a firm handshake says; Merry Christmas with a twinkle in their eye and you know that they know exactly what they are talking about. This year I will be vigilant in only saying Merry Christmas because Christ was merry and so am I. So I have been very late in compiling a year end report of The Uprising and also FLOW 60. Don’t let you eyes deceive you, here it is, finally. The year opened up with 21 days of prayer and fasting. During this time we really felt a renewed call from the Lord to continue and expand the call that God has placed on the Uprising, as a monthly gathering of worship and prayer. Our mission defined to stand in the Gap for the young adults of the North Shore, praying for revival and unity. During this time the Lord also released a strategy of street evangelism on the Saturday afternoons right before the Uprising service that has been very fruitful not only for those hearing the message, but for the brave ones who step out into that call. As the year progressed, we’ve seen the Lord transition our meetings into some very intense times in the Lords presence, where different ones have found a greater release in their gift of speaking, worship and corporate prayer. We have seen the Lord release many prophetic acts and words of the Lord through a diverse range of individuals that have given themselves fully to His cause. Some highlights of the year would be in March when we had roughly 80 people come to our Uprising service crying out to God for a renewing of His Spirit in our time with preaching out of Hab 3:2 “Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy”. That we would know His greatness in our day. I am so proud of the band and different ones who have really helped take the services to a new level. This year the Lord has really expanded our borders. We have been praying for a greater network to be created between different churches and young ministers. We were blessed to have Crave ministries join us a couple of times this year. What an encouragement from our brothers in Maine. Youth Storm also played a part in leading an Uprising service. We want to thank Harvard Awakening for their friendship and support as well as Gateways of Peace and Adonai Christian fellowship among others. Our fall conference with Holyfire was incredible. Justin and crew really blew the lid right off. They really demonstrated what a heart they had for the church and His move. One of the most memorable parts of that weekend was a preaching calling the church to sabotage the kingdom of darkness from within. Knowing that Christ calls everyone to lead subversive lives, spreading light in the kingdom of present darkness. Our heart has always been for unity. This was especially showcased in FLOW 60, our 3 night 36 hour time of prayer in worship over Halloween. We were blessed to have 8 different churches join us during this time. On the day before Halloween, we held a watch night service with continuous 1 hour worship sets from 7pm till 7 am. What a powerful experience. During this time, God released several words concerning his plans for this city. As we spent the night in worship, prayer and making prophetic declarations, it was clear that God was raising up his army to take a stand in the mid[...]

We are so excited for what God is going to do this coming weekend. Everywhere we turned, more and more groups and churches expressed such a desire and confirmation that the Lord was leading them to have a part in what God wants to do in Salem. I truly believe that these will be historic times as we attend to a blazing altar unto God in the midst of such debauchery that is Salem during Halloween. Below is the scheduling for the services. We are calling for extended prayer with fasting on this Tuesday and Wednesday in preparation for these services. We eagerly await seeing you this weekend.

The Lord has been laying on our hearts an unquenchable desire for prayer, worship and unity. Throught the body of Christ, there have been many localized movements of prayer and worship. Today, the call is to increase this scale and power by calling a 36 hour, 3 night event called Flow 60 (six oh) for the 3 last days of October, ending on Halloween night.

Below is the scheduling:

Thursday, October 29th, Meeting #1 at 7-10pm at the Kingdom Life Center at 127 North St. in Salem. This meeting will consist of interactive worship and prayer for our city, and will be broken into 3 one hour sets, led by different area ministries.

Friday, Oct 30th will consist of street evangelism, prayer walking and prayer sets from 11am to 5pm meeting at East Gate Christian Fellowship, in downtown Salem at 9 Church St.

Friday, Oct 30th Service #2 will begin later that evening at 7pm at East Gate Christian Fellowship. This meeting marks the beginning of 27 hours of non stop prayer and worship. This service will be broken into 1hour worship and prayer sets led by different area ministries.

Our vision is to partner and line up as many worship sets as possible to carry worship and prayer all through the night and into the following day. We recognize that at some point we might run our of bands, resulting in switching to playing Cd’s with our corporate time turning into a more personal time of prayer and waiting on the Lord.

Saturday Oct 31st Prayer and worship will be scheduled in 1 hour slots through the day as we continue the 27 hours of prayer and worship. At the same time we will also be joining East Gate Christian Fellowship from 11am-5pm in outreach in the Cave Café with the serving of free Hot Chocolate, Coffee and snacks. The Cave Café will also be hosting different musical performances, skits, testimonies and preaching. We would like to open up this ministry opportunity to all those participating in FLOW 60.

Saturday Oct 31st Flow 60 will end with a celebration service on Saturday at 7-10 pm with worship and prayer once again broken into 1 hour slots being filled by different area ministries.

The purpose of this email is to invite you to join us in these times listed above. My prayer is that this vision stirs your heart to bring your passion, wisdom and zeal , believing God to make this the most impact full Halloween yet. Our prayer is that we would allow the Lord to join our hearts as we come together, standing in the gap for our city and seeing strengthened bonds of friendship and unity being forged during and thru these meetings.

Each hour slot will take on its own flavor, incorporating different aspects of music, interactive media, prayer points, open mic prayers and whatever else the Lord leads us to do. We are also looking for anyone that would like to minister in the Cave Cafe Outreach. These performances and times of sharing can be schedule in 10-30 minute intervals. Please respond to this email if you would like to have an opportunity to minister in the Cave Cafe.


We are in the process of creating a facebook page for this event, with up to date scheduling of participating ministries.

One Standard to Uplift: JESUS

2009-08-13T07:23:27.491-04:00

The Uprising is gearing up for an incredible fall. Our schedule will includes some great concerts, conference, prayer, campus outreach, street evangelism and of course abandoned nights of Uprising worship, exhortation and prayer. The finalized schedule will be posted around the 20th of this month. The Lord has been laying on our hearts an unquenchable desire for prayer, worship and unity. I believe a key verse for this fall is Isaiah 60:5 “Thy shalt see, and flow together” The following exhortation has been based on the book by Derek Prince “Shaping History through Prayer and Fasting”. The Word of God reveals to us that we, His church are his main rep and agent on the earth today. This main agent is being restored to God’s own standards of purity, power and order. The church restored will be enabled to fulfill its destiny and bring a triumphant climax to God’s purposes in this age. God’s heart is for order and restoration. His bride walking in unity. We see in Ephesians 4:13 “Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” This vision is for a growing and developing church, moving towards a predetermined end. The way that leads into this unity is indicated by “the (acknowledging) of the Son of God”. All doctrines in the New Testament center in the person and work of Christ.When Christians are willing to acknowledge Christ in His Fullness, and to give Christ His rightful position in their lives and in the church, all the various doctrines in Christianity all fit together in Him, just like the spokes of a wheel fitting into its hub. The Glorious church, growing into full stature will be able to represent Christ in all His fullness. We will be, in the truest sense, the embodiment of Christ. We will constitute the consummation of God’s purposes for the church: that is, the perfect revelation of Christ endowed with every grace, gift and ministry. In Ephesians 5:25-26, Paul presents Christ first as Redeemer, then as Sanctifier. The Blood of Jesus is the Redemption; the Word of God is the Sanctifier. The Sanctifying operation of God’s word is compared to the washing of pure water. It is the Holy Spirit who bears witness to both these aspects of Christ. In Ephesians 5:27 this double ministry presents a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. The glory of God will permeate the church. God’s personal presence will be made manifest to human senses. Just like the cloud in the desert, the completed church will be overshadowed, filled and illuminated by the manifest glory of God. Isaiah 59:19-60:5 portrays the end purposes of God. There will be a worldwide demonstration of God’s glory that will cause awe and wonder among the nation. The enemy will rise up like a flood, but that opposition will be overcome by the Holy Spirit.With the full knowledge that God is coming to our help, people of God from every direction will gather around the uplifted standard and regroup for a fresh offensive. What is the standard that the Holy Spirit uplifts? John 16:13-14 Jesus said “He shall glorify me”. The Holy Spirit has only one standard to uplift. It is the person of JesusFor every true believer, loyalty to this standard, Jesus Christ, is primary. Every other commitment, whether to institution, denomination or doctrine, is secondary. Wherever such believers see Christ truly uplifted by the Holy Spirit, they will gather.The effects of this regathering are listed in Isaiah 59:19-20 God’s people are turning back to Him in repentance. Christ is working again in His church, bringing redemption and deliverance. He is renewing His covenant and restoring the fullness of His Holy Spiri[...]



thanks burnwagon!

2009-06-29T08:20:05.172-04:00

What an awesome week we’ve had. Last weekend with the Burn Wagon was incredible. After a tasty bbq, we hit the streets of Salem for prayer and evangelism. The Lord led some of the team members to the old city hall on Essex St. It was kind of funny because as they kept walking they always ended up back at the same building.

At first they did not know what building it was. The Lord started showing them that decrees had been made from this building that let the city down paths of unrighteousness. As they received this, the Lord started giving them prophetic declarations to speak about the future of the building and the future of Salem. This along with several salvations made for a great afternoon.

Later that evening, the Burn team led worship and ministered at the Uprising service. We had a turnout of roughly 60 people and the presence of the Lord just fell. The worship team never even played a standard song, rather moving through chord progressions with prophetic songs and intensity that was truly amazing.

As the service progressed, several words of encouragement were given, including words about the coming move of God in our city and a generation of young people finding their portion before God. As the service turned into a time of prayer it was clear that God has set up the entire night as many received prayer and an impartation of greater faith and expectancy.

Then after the service was over we stopped by a Walgreen’s to buy some frozen pizza and some team members started talking to an 18year old guy right in the parking lot. He got saved, his girlfriend got saved and two other friends came over and also received prayer. Truly an amazing night.
We just want to thank the Burn Wagon for all they did and even though the time was short, we believe that God has more in store for us as we press onto our full calling in Christ.



Welcome

2009-06-19T15:54:52.181-04:00

We are so excited about the Burn Wagon joining us this saturday. For all of those interested, we will be doing street evangelism on saturday, June 20th at 1pm at the Kingdom Life Center, 127 North St. Salem, MA. The uprising service will be held at the same location starting at 7pm. This is a cross denominational spirit led night of worship and prayer. We hope to see you there.

So i was praying the other day and was just thinking back on the last service and the services at Gordon (reveal and respond) and i felt like God was saying that the movement of the youth in this day will be a movement not like any other movement seen before. It will be a group that rises up and decides to be real with one another with no fear of condemnation. If we really want to see the youth transformed and set free we have to be real with ourselves and realize our generation is labeled the lost generation. We have sinned and yes we have fallen short of his glory but no sin is greater than the love of Christ! The youth of this area feel dirtier than other generations and they may even look dirtier but God does not count the greatness of your sin but just that we have sinned in general and now that sin requires repentance. In Romans where is talks about not being condemned for our sins for those who WALK in the spirit and not in the flesh..yeah you know that one. Well i was absolutely confused by the word WALK in the KJV. So i prayed, God I've heard so many times we are supposed to run hard after you why when we get real does it require us to walk???? I felt real strong that God said running most often than not refers to a quick action like if you run to the store you intend to do so quickly or if you have to run and talk to your teacher because you might fail the class. Running always refers to a quick work and God said that really getting real with him is a process where you walk with him and he will reveal whats not right in your life and slowly that dirt becomes something that is used to glorify him and slowly you can start to run again. So now the question is we know we have sinned its been shown to us but how will we respond, will we run or will we walk with God and let him work on us?



PRAYER!

2008-11-12T13:00:50.204-05:00

We were so blessed and encouraged by our 24 hour prayer last month! We filled every spot and prayed for 24 consecutive hours! There were so many testimonies of all that God spoke to people.

We know that prayer is so key. It is the heart of God! He desires us to come and spend time with Him. It is in His presence that we become more like Him. The way to bring true change and transformation to a generation is through prayer!

We believe that God is going to build on what He has already done. We are so excited to lift up continuous prayer to the throne room again this weekend.

Please join us!

We will be at the Kingdom Life Center (127 North Street, Salem, MA 01970) Friday, November 14 from 7-8 pm for corporate worship. Prayer slots begin at 8:00 pm on Friday (November 14) night and continue until 7:00 pm Saturday (November 15). Prayer will conclude with our Uprising Service from 7-9 pm.



day 4

2008-10-11T07:37:19.819-04:00

We are radical regardless of time of day, week, month or year
We don’t need recognition, our recognition is upwards
We are not served, we do the serving.



day 3

2008-10-10T07:51:51.461-04:00

This is an army that will lay down its life for the cause
We are not only about the end result, but the journey
Our eyes are fixed on the “Well done” my child.



day 2

2008-10-09T10:07:10.536-04:00

We belong to the nations but aren’t bound to any.
We are a generation whose holiness hurts the eyes.
We have exchanged minimum integrity for reaching for the stars
We embrace the call to be Nazarites and Levite Priests.
We scorn only the good and reach for the best.
Our love is dangerously pure and simple



day 1

2008-10-08T11:21:22.062-04:00

As we open our prayer room and begin the 24 hour prayer, we thought we would prepare ourselves by meditating on the vision and letting God write it on our hearts. The Bible says,

Hab 2:2
Then the LORD answered me and said:
"Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
Hab 2:3
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.

We are going to post parts of the vision daily for everyone to read and pray about. We want to get what God is saying and doing in our hearts. We don't want to just be familiar with the words, but we want it to become who we are. Let God birth the vision in your own heart.

We are so blessed to be part of a church that is unwavering and pursuing God. The call of our church (East Gate Christian Fellowship) is to lay down our lives that God can truly be Lord of all! I thank God for leaders who are focused on the vision that God has written on their hearts.

Please respond in the comment section and share what God shows you concerning the vision.

Day 1:

The vision is Jesus, obsessively, dangerously, undeniably Jesus
The vision is an army of young people.
You see bones, I see an army
We are free from materialism and the constraints of career
obsession



the vision and the reality

2008-10-07T08:27:44.257-04:00

(The following was taken from My Utmost For His Highest)

"...to those who are...called to be saints..." (1 Corinthians 1:2)

Thank God for being able to see all that you have not yet been. You have have had the vision, but you are not yet the reality of it by any means. It is when we are in the valley, where we prove whether we will be the choice ones, that most of us turn back. We are not quite prepared for the bumps and bruises that must come if we are going to be turned into the shape of the vision. We have seen what we are not, what God wants us to be, but are we willing to be battered into the shape of the vision to be used by God? The beatings will always come in the most common everyday ways ans through common, everyday people.

There are times when we do know what God's purpose it; whether we will let the vision be turned into actual character depends on us, not God. If we prefer to relax on the mountain top and live in the memory of the vision, then we will be of no real use in the ordinary things of which human life is made. We have to learn to live in the reliance upon what we saw in the vision, not simply live in the ecstatic delight and conscious reflection upon God. This means living the realities of our lives in the light of the vision until the truth of the vision is actually realized in us. Every bit of our training is in that direction. Learn to thank God for making His demands known.

Our little "I am" always sulks and pouts when God says do. Let your little "I am" be shriveled up in God's wrath and indignation-I AM WHO I AM...has sent me to you (Exodus 3:14). He must dominate. Isn't it piercing to realize that God not only knows where we live, but also knows the gutters into which we crawl! He will haunt us down as fast as a flash of lightning. No human being knowa human beings as God does.



challenge

2008-09-25T09:03:50.619-04:00

2008-09-25T08:59:41.290-04:00

Here is a charge based on the vision from the 24/7 prayer movement.


The vision is Jesus, obsessively, dangerously, undeniably Jesus
The vision is an army of young people.
Your see bones, I see an army
We are free from materialism and the constraints of Career obsession
We belong to the nations but aren’t bound to any.
We are a generation whose holiness hurts the eyes.
We have exchanged minimum integrity for reaching for the stars
We embrace the call to be Nazarites and Levite Priests.
We scorn only the good and reach for the best.
Our love is dangerously pure and simple
This is an army that will lay down its life for the cause
We are not only about the end result, but the journey
Our eyes are fixed on the “Well done” my child.
We are radical regardless of time of day, week, month or year
We don’t need recognition, our recognition is upwards
We are not served, we do the serving.
We are the shaping of history in the making,
We are revolutionaries dreaming as the foundations are being shaken
The harder the winds are blowing, the tighter our grasp onto the cross
In humility we knee at the foot of the cross
An army on its knees, one hand to god and one to man
We are a discipled and intense army, our bodies are in submission.
For me to live is Christ and to die is gain
Sacrifice fuels the fire of victory
Winners, Martyrs, Who can stop us?
Hormones will not hold us back, Fear cannot scare us, or death kill us
We are a generation who will pray like a dying man, with groan beyond talking
Watching, waiting, 24 7 365
Whatever it takes we will give.
Our strategy is foolish, but mountains and walls cannot stop us advertisers cannot mold us, or hollywood hold us
Peer pressure is powerless
We pray as if it all depends on God and live as if it all depended on us
Our DNA has a blood transfusion with Jesus
We are the children of another dimension
We are like the wind, children of the spirit
This vision is us, this vision is now
This is the longing of creation itself, the revelation of the children of God
The groaning of the spirit and the very dream of God
My tomorrow is his today, my distant hope is his reality
Our prayers evoke the thunderous Amen from the cloud of witnesses and christ himself.
He is the original and ultimate winner.
Guaranteed.
Our sacrifice is a small fraction of the prize.
It will be worth it all.



Uprising Who?

2008-07-18T17:00:39.647-04:00

Dear Revolutionaries;

So there have been some questions as to our where-abouts and I am here to answer them. For those of you who missed it Salem has been in the midst of revival and as The Uprising we wanted to be a strengthening to the local church's considering our movement takes place in Salem. So we decided to jump fully on board with the revival and it has been AMAZING!

If you have not checked it out it has been streaming on www.praytv.org and there are archives of the monumental services so watch and be encouraged. The Salem Outpouring Revival Meetings are currently regrouping at The Kingdom Life Center on July 25th (directions).

So that is why we have not been meeting on Saturdays. Depending on where this goes we may continue in august but we will keep you posted.

Always remember that love is the uprising; you are love so get out there and show some LOVE and be an UPRISING!

IN THE MEANTIME DONT FORGET TO ADD US ON MYSPACE!



...and we're BACK!

2008-05-26T19:23:00.961-04:00

Just a reminder that we WILL be having our regular uprising service on the first saturday of June (june 7th) at 7 p.m at the Kingdom Life Center.
God has spoken and done so much in these past few weeks, and we greatly anticipate what lies ahead, but we also need to prepare. Come ready to prepare the way for Him in this region, and to experience Him.


June 7th
7 p.m
Kingdom Life Center



Lynch Park

2008-05-26T19:23:00.962-04:00

activate

2008-05-01T16:04:27.125-04:00

Activate that impartation!
For those of us who had hands laid on us for the impartation that was brought back from Florida, we now need to do our part. We activate that anointing/impartation by FAITH. We need to believe with every fiber of our being. Not only do we need to believe but we need to step out and do something beyond what we normally do.
Let's stop asking God for the things He has already provided and promised, but let's declare them and walk in them. When we gather at church let's expect, not hope, that God is coming to do something new and fresh. Let's just do something different and/or out of the ordinary that shows God our passion, zeal, and desire for Him.
Let's approach everyday..."revival is here! god is going to use me to heal the sick and save the lost today".



don't miss this SATURDAY!

2008-04-30T00:40:49.927-04:00

The Uprising will be meeting this saturday at 7 at the kingdom life center, but we will not be having our usual service. Instead, we will be joining college students from the northshore area in a time of prayer and seeking the Lord. We want to be a part of what God's doing through the youth of the northshore, and that means supporting and being involved with our brothers and sisters in Christ with like vision.

Hope to see you all there!
