Mike Bickle: We Believe Part of This Bob Jones Prophecy Will Come to Pass This Week

Join us by webstream for an historic gathering this week at IHOPKC at ihopkc.org. Around 1,000 Chinese leaders and friends are coming to IHOPKC for four days this week (Sept.19–22, Wednesday–Saturday). The majority of these leaders and emerging leaders are from Asia and North America. I believe that this will be one of the most significant gatherings in IHOPKC's 19-year history.

I was overjoyed in receiving news that one of the purposes of Chinese guests in determining to come to Kansas City was to connect hearts with IHOPKC leadership team and community. They are calling this four-day gathering, "Convergence"—the idea is in seeing the convergence of the preaching the gospel in Asia to night-and-day prayer, and even to see the convergence of hundreds of Chinese ministry teams to a deep relationship with the IHOPKC community. What a joy, privilege and honor for us and for you—our extended IHOPKC family that often joins us by the webstream.

On the day that I met Bob Jones 35 years ago (March 7, 1983), he told me that when the Lord raised up 24/7 prayer with worship in our midst, He would then connect us to millions of Asians and their leadership in a powerful way. He said this would happen when we received the property that President Harry Truman once owned in Grandview (we received 125 acres of his land as a gift in 2008).

Next, on that same day in 1983, Bob prophesied a most perplexing thing—that millions of Asians would connect with us on what Bob called "unplugged TV sets" (he was speaking of what is now known as smartphones). All of this did not seem possible in 1983. Today, many Asians are connecting with us by the webstream on a regular basis. Bob told me that the Lord would do this because He would orchestrate a relationship with a future 24/7 prayer ministry in Kansas City with Asian leaders that would have an end-time global purpose.

We believe that this next week will be another big step toward seeing this prophetic word come to pass.

In our gathering together with 1,000 Asian guests this week, we will also celebrate IHOPKC's 19th anniversary of 24/7 prayer with worship—our anniversary is this Wednesday, Sept. 19.

We see this as a "kairos moment," thus it demands extra attention in the Spirit as we will likely be unpacking the ramifications of our deepened relationship with them during these four days—the impact of this will affect many for years to come. While we celebrate these events, we also feel a sober sense of stewardship.

Join us live in any of the eight sessions of the Chinese Convergence Gathering that will be shown live on the webstream. All the meetings are at Forerunner Church. The schedule is as follows:

Wednesday: 6 – 9 p.m. (celebrating IHOPKC's 19th anniversary)

Thursday and Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., 2:30 – 5 p.m. and 7:30 – 10 p.m.

Saturday: 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Mike Bickle is the director of the International House of Prayer Missions Base of Kansas City, Missouri, and author of several books. For more information, visit mikebickle.org or ihopkc.org.
