In Ecclesiastes, the Good Book talks about the importance for all of us to "recognize" there is a season for everything. A time to be born, a time to die... What season do we believe we are in and how can God's living Word help us? This is answered in the book of John, which begins by saying, "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God until the Word became flesh and came to this earth and dwelt among men.
It is not just another story, but the book of the month, but the book of the ages. In this spirit, we sense the presence of God, are putting on the "whole armor" and fueling engines for our next spiritual assault.
OUR WHOLE ARMOR
We as filmmakers are reminded each day in Ephesians 6 the most important part of life is to put on the "whole armor" of God. Are you preparing for battle for every day? Do you stand expectantly waiting for the return of God when His Son returns to this earth? Do you have.a personal relationship with the Jesus Christ?
Here is why this is important to our team. First things are always first and our priorities should be surrounded by a holy anointing in each of our lives, and this includes you. the Bible is specific in that it's words call all of us to be a minister. Are you ready to be a minister of the gospel? are you daily seeking Him, by reading His word, or is this another religious habit?
IMPORTANT CALL - JUNE 2, 2020 4 PM EST
In the coming days, important events are in the balance. Today is one of those examples because at 4 pm EST, I will be on a conference via Zoom with a private equity film for our film slate. This is the first meeting of it's kind with a large multi-billion dollar organization established by a prominent NFL legend. The source of this event, was birthed from Facebook in our V300 prayer team. You will not believe this, but the catalyst was born in Johnstown. It is no surprise when God uses our prayer warriors to push down walls for us, with petitions to a Holy God.
We are prepared daily for the spiritual war we are going to face. For two years, we have consistently been "sharpening our armor", faithful in the pursuit and been patient in the journey. This is not the way we like to operate, and the time is coming soon we will need our financial team to open doors. Every time there is a sacrifice, God moves. We are not standing, but charging toward the goal, but the film team needs the complete arsenal fueled.
With an entire film fund now prepared, the "group" of filmmakers in each story are inside the starting gates of the most amazing race of a.lifetime. Leading this charge is our newly transformed film team from GR Productions into our name name, OCEANIA OMNIMEDIA. As the pandemic slowly lifts and the world begins to operate in the new "normal", we will need an arsenal of resources, prayer, finances and more.
The minute we have these resources, here are the next steps. The team needs to visit Johnstown within the next two weeks. We will need to travel to Los Angeles and possibly New York City. Face to face meetings are being scheduled with this "group" in Los Angeles and Park City, Utah. At the end of the day, if this group gives the "green light" to continue our meetings, we will need "fuel for the engine" and we know He will provide, but we need every single prayer soldier, to consider how you can help us engage with these areas.
We truly believe we need $25,000, which would be another "unit" and could divide this into 5 areas. This would represent 1 percentage point in our STORY RIGHTS LLC already established. Our team at GRP FILMS have been funding all of our trips since the writing of the screenplay. We have already received great responses from the franchise's cinematic property, so the investments here will pay for the team of Dr. Kevin McAfee & Jennifer Willingham to go to Pennsylvania, Utah, New York City, Los Angeles and whatever future designated cities over the next forty five days.
TIMING IS NOW
It has taken months to establish these relationships and during the pandemic, everything has been trying to stop this project. We all know these are the attacks of the enemy. Whenever you know you have something special, like our story, we expect the spiritual warfare. We must now stop our preparations and begin to forge with precision and focus.
WHO TO CALL
Gary Lambert and our team have meticulously gone over the details of potential Pennsylvania investors with our Vice President, Stephanie Musser. Everyone has their contact information, so please call today. Even if you can only be a fifth partner a point for this entire movie, invest now as the urgency is high.
May the Lord bless each one of you. We imagine the battles are raging in every part of this team's mere presence and our job is to bond in community. If we can pray for you in any way, never hesitate to contact us, because iron sharpens iron. For those of you who have lost jobs, lost loved ones and even are going through unspeakable heartbreak, I want to remind you of a dear man we know.
A STORY WORTH REMEMBERING
He was going to Rome and thought he would have a huge platform to speak. His words were hitting home with everyone who listened to him and he imagined a pulpit for his future. However, God did not provide the pulpit, but instead allowed the enemy to bring him into a prison, where he would eventually have his life ended. This man's name was Paul and he is buried in St. Paul's cathedral in the church "Outside the Walls".
A few years ago, we visited the church where Paul's grave has been traced through oral tradition by the Catholic Church. What an amazing supernatural experience we had standing at one of the greatest martyrs in Christianity of our day. Seeing the chains where his hands were buried brought such deep emotion to our hearts. Battles can happen from every place and we are interceding for your personal battles even now.
Thank you for being with us in this journey with JP KNIGHTS. It's time to begin the next chapter and now you know how you can be a part of the solution. Hopefully next month we will be that much closer to the reality of pre-production in our movie.
