It seems there is more to this hashtag of Together 2016 than meets the eye. Look at all the others who want to come together or have done in recent days. It looks like people having been thinking about coming together a lot this year. And it’s no surprise that a generation ago they were talking about it then.
Our generation is the most cause-driven in history. But our causes are pulling us apart. Even religion doesn’t unite. We believe only Jesus can bring us together. July 16, 2016, is the day our generation will meet on the National Mall to come together around Jesus in unified prayer, worship, and a call for catalytic change.
WE’RE BUILDING TOWARD SOMETHING UNPRECEDENTED. (See Gen 11:1 -9)
We believe there’s power in coming together.
Jesus promised whenever two or more come together in His name, He is present (wrong).
The key is the gathering in his name – i.e. Under His will, command and authority.
The modern idea is just to come together.
- For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – (KJV)
- “because where two or three have come together in my name, I am there among them.” – (ISV)
- When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. — The Message
Quoting further from the vision statement:
IT’S TIME TO COME TOGETHER AROUND JESUS.
Now our generation is rising up to lead toward a historic event that will define our time and shift our culture. The statistics of this generation are sobering; young people struggle with depression, self-harm, suicide, and addiction at unprecedented rates. But a call for hope is rising—the hope that only Jesus brings—to change our generation forever.
