The Burn 24/7

Introduction

One of our worship leaders at Immanuel, Sean Gooch, has become involved with a worship and prayer initiative, The Burn 24/7, which is rapidly spreading across the world.  He has inspired us to catch the vision and join in.  Some of us already have.

What is Burn 24/7?

The mission is to plant a sustainable furnace of 24-7-365 worship, prayer and supernatural explosive outreach releasing a sound of indigenous, vertical, creative worship in every community, people group, city and nation in the world.

The Burn 24/7 web site says this:

We are a global community and tribe on a journey pursuing his presence and his face.  We are burning and believing for our families, communities, cities and nations to be reformed and transformed by his lasting and sustaining glory in our midst.  Burn 24/7 carries the Amos 9:11 and Acts 15;16 Davidic calling to ’rebuild the tabernacle of David’ so that the ‘rest of humanity can seek the Lord.’  Our vision is simply to answer the cry of God throughout the history of humanity for a resting place (Isaiah 66) to be established so his spirit can collide with a broken humanity.

This is a beautiful place where his body gathers in a spirit of unit to release an indigenous 24-7-365 expression of vertical worship and adoration.  From these furnaces of intimate love, fiery intercession can be released to rule, govern and establish righteousness in the nations of the earth.

Our primary reason to release and create an expression of night and day worship is because he alone is worthy to receive it.  We gather from across denominational lines and ethnic boundaries to build an altar where the fire of our burning love will not go out until the return of Jesus to the earth.  We join with the song and sound of heaven and those ministering around the throne to cry out: ‘Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty!’

We believe that as we model this activity and expression of heaven, we will see the reality of the Kingdom of heaven collide with earth in our communities, regions and nations in a real and supernatural way.  Only in a posture of beholding him can we hope to become like him to the rest of the world.  As we obey and respond to the first commandment of Jesus to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart’ we are compelled by his love and goodness to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ and walk in supernatural signs and wonders carrying his presence into every sphere of society and culture.

This inspiring vision strikes a chord with us here at Immanuel, and we’re keen to participate.  Whilst it’s primarily a youth movement, there’s no age limit and some of us who are ‘young at heart’ intend to play our part.

What happens at a ‘Burn’

‘Burns’ usually last between 24 and 100 hours, depending on the venue, but the vision is to increase their length until eventually they are 24/7 every day of the year.  The time is split into 2 hour sessions, each led by a local worship leader.  This may range from one person leading worship and prayer with a musical instrument on their own, or a full band playing with a team of prayer leaders.  The desire is to concentrate on each worshippers’ vertical relationship with God, and to create an environment through worship and intercession where God opens the heavens and his presence is strongly felt in the midst.  Spontaneous prophetic songs and singing in the Spirit are as common as well-known worship songs. 

Sean Feucht, the founder of the ‘Burn 24/7’ movement, says:

It is a consecrated place to minister to God first . . . Burns are accompanied by an extraordinary freedom in the Spirit, yet there is a divine order to it all . . . As the father’s heart is revealed, waves of deep intercession for the region and the nations will wash through the room, as well as waves of deep rest and joy.  One person might experience all of these in one two-hour shift.  In short, there is a lot of variety and diversity of expression in the Burn.

We have been learning a lot about perseverance this year!!  In all that is going on around us, to keep focused on Jesus and allow Him to be our strength and our peace.  It has been a journey that has been very humbling and leaning more into God and trusting Him.

It was a sad day.... Mark was welding on the roof of a YWAM bus and a spark caught alight the interior and the bus went up in flames in seconds!

Taking Every Thought Captive

Monday 13th October 2014

Recently I've been having waves of fear and anxiety attacks that have been lasting for days on end.

I find myself thinking "I don't want to feel like this but I can't seem to shake these thoughts and feelings."
I mean seriously who wants to live a life full of crippling fear and anxiety? Not me!

You can listen to Matthew's testimony here too...
