Boston, Massachusetts here I come for June family wedding. The word God gave me for Boston back in May is bell. Many confirmations of this word came. Through prayer I felt led to look up Paul Revere. Turns out he was a famous bell maker!
Paul Revere’s famous ride began in Boston.
He warned patriots along his route, many of whom set out on horseback to deliver warnings of their own. By the end of the night there were probably as many as 40 riders carrying the news of the army’s advance. Revere did not shout the phrase “The British are coming!”. His mission depended on secrecy, the countryside was filled with British army patrols, and most of the Massachusetts colonists were predominantly English in ethnic origin. Instead Revere’s own description was “The Regulars are coming out.” He also had two lanterns placed in the steeple of the Old North Church. The famous phrase “one by land, two by sea” so a light similar to a Lighthouse warned the towns of impending danger!
Finally Revere and two riders met together moving onwards to Lexington to warn the town, John Hancock and Samuel Adams. On the way, Revere and the two were detained by a British Army patrol at a roadblock.
The British took the captives and were moving toward Lexington, but as the group drew closer the town bell began to clang rapidly, upon which one of the captives proclaimed to the British soldiers “The bell’s a’ringing! The town’s alarmed, and you’re all dead men!” The British soldiers decided not to press further but instead freed the prisoners, taking Revere’s horse. So Revere walked to Rev. Jonas Clarke’s house, where John Hancock and Samuel Adams were staying. As the battle on Lexington Green unfolded, Revere assisted Hancock and his family in their escape from Lexington.
The ride of the three men triggered a flexible system of “alarm and muster” that had been carefully developed months before… Riders delivered messages, bells, drums, alarm guns, bonfires, and a trumpet were used for rapid communication from town to town… This system was so effective that people in towns 25 miles from Boston were aware of the army’s movements. The alarm raised by the three riders successfully allowed the militia to confront the British troops in Concord, and then harry them all the way back to Boston.
Revere identified a growing market for church bells in the religious revival known as the Second Great Awakening that followed the war. Beginning in 1792 he became one of America’s best-known bell casters, working with sons Paul Jr. and Joseph Warren Revere in the firm Paul Revere & Sons. This firm cast the first bell made in Boston and ultimately produced hundreds of bells, in operation to this day.
Summary for prayer: we need to be a Light as Lighthouse Intercessors to our friends to be ready for Jesus is coming soon!! Just like Paul Revere let’s go at this midnight hour to warn them of our enemy’s schemes to stop the “Gos-bell” and ring out loud and clear beginning in our churches to the highways and byways!! Many are ready and the harvest is ripe! Please pray for our nation as we know the Third Great Awakening is upon us!! Are you ready to tell others about the saving power of Jesus to deliver, restore, and heal?
Our Boston family wedding also reminded me of wedding bells–and our own Bridegroom King who will soon be coming to gather His Bride!! Lets be ready my friends!!
I’ve never been to a more worshipful and romantic wedding as my nephews. We were given various types of BELLS to ring as the couple raced to the getaway car!! God amazes me!! I’ve never seen or heard of this but my heart soared as I thought about His word to me for this special family & prayer time. Latest news of Supreme Court decision for pro-life in Massachusetts!
See and hear Make Way for the King by Newsboys!! This morning The Lord said You are the ‘bell’. Ring Me to others loud and clear!

The Call is for God’s people to pray for each of the first seven days in the seventh month: July 1-7. Then on the 7th day, July 7, we are to pray and fast for 7 hours.
Blow the trumpet…sound the alarm…for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand-Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God. -Joel 2:1, 13
Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, is calling Americans to corporate national prayer as she warns end-times are near.
“One of the things He has impressed on me is that we are living at the end of human history as we know it,” said Lotz in a June 20th letter to Pat Robertson. (Photo courtesy: CBN News)
In the letter, Lotz spoke about having more time for prayer and reflection as her husband’s health is declining and that, as a result, God revealed things to her “in the stillness that I’m not sure I would have heard in my former busyness.”
“Just recently,” she added, “He has given me another assignment, which is to call His people in our nation to prayer. This assignment came indirectly from a Syrian pastor through a National Day of Prayer attendee. In obedience, I am blowing the trumpet…sounding the alarm…issuing a national prayer initiative entitled 777: An Urgent Call to Prayer. The Call is for God’s people to pray for each of the first seven days in the seventh month: July 1-7. Then on the 7th day, July 7, we are to pray and fast for 7 hours.
The purpose is:?• For God the Father to restrain, protect, and deliver His people from the evil that has come into our world.?• For God the Son to be exalted, magnified, and glorified in His Church, in our nation, and in our lives.?• For God the Holy Spirit to fall on us in a fresh way, compelling the Church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, resulting in a great national spiritual awakening.
“This is all about calling God’s people to pray before it’s too late and judgment falls on our nation,” concluded Lotz.
