"Restoring Ancient Pathways" by Joyce Geiler
On October 7-19, Dr. Patti is hosting a conference entitled “Restoring Ancient Pathways.” This series of meetings is being held in conjunction with the Hebrew Feast of Tabernacles. The Double Tree Inn on highway 159 in Collinsville, IL has been rented and speakers are coming from Wichita, Kansas and locally from Granite City to minister a now word about reclaiming the power and presence of past moves of God. Times of worship, personal ministry, and meals have been set. You are invited to join Dr. Patti and her guest to celebrate the feast and to tabernacle together in God’s presence. Please note the information attached below to this email or go on the website to obtain more information and to register for the conference at:
Chuck Pierce gave Dutch Sheets a prophetic word on Passover 2019. The following is a partial transcript of that word:
"The Lord says, 'I commission you to start wakjubg tge kabdm searching for the ancient paths. They will lead to the coming of the covenant plan.' The Lord says, 'I'm rallying the troops. I'm filling the quivers and I will have them ready when the time to advance in this land occurs. The months ahead are key. Watch, listen, get ready, for the unlocking in this land is coming. There will be a transfer of authority to My kingdom people. The land will reform! The key belongs to you to bring the kingdom down. Get ready! 'There is coming a new path,' says the Lord. 'It is ancient, but has never been unlocked before. Watch. Have the key ready. I have ordained the time. It will be in the journey that is going on.' This Passover began the unlocking of an ancient path that shakes the entire land called America.’”—Chuck Pierce.
The Alliance in Madison and St. Clair Counties has grabbed hold of this prophecy. One of our ancient paths is the Goshen road leading to the Goshen settlement. The Goshen Settlement was located in what became Madison County. In 1799, David Bagley, a Virginia Baptist minister passed through the area and determined that it was a land of such expanse and luxuriant vegetation that he compared it to the Biblical Land of Goshen.
In the early 1800’s, the path called Goshen Road became the main east/west route in Illinois allowing passage from the Cumberland Gap to the St. Louis area. As settlers crossed the Ohio River into the town now known as Old Shawneetown, they traveled in a northwest direction establishing settlements along the way. The pathway continued for 150 to 200 miles, avoiding large streams by following much of the Ohio and Mississippi River watershed divide and ending at a settlement in what is now Madison County called Goshen. From Goshen settlement, settlers could then travel by boat down the Mississippi River to St. Louis if they desired.
For twenty years Pastor Roy Boyer has carried a dream for restoring the revival in the area that coincided with the great Cane Ridge, Kentucky revivals. He has researched and compiled a vast amount of detailed information of events and happenings in the area. The Alliance of Madison-St. Clair Counties joined with Pastor Boyer as he led them to significant locations. The first journey was to “firsts:” the first church, a log cabin representing the first settlers who established a first business – blacksmithing, and the place where the first camp meetings were likely held. While the participants were at the log cabin, God impressed on them that they were on holy ground. One man saw angels when the worship began, floating over the place in brilliant, pure white robes – very angel-looking. As prayer was made, the angels all settled down in a line, one at a time and in angel “work clothes.” It was understood that a portal had existed there but over the years because it was not tended; therefore it became sealed up with dirt, stones and refuse. While the worshippers were there, the angels cleaned out and dug out that portal, completely clearing it out.
At that first journey, Pastor Boyer kept envisioning plats of land with portions for the next generation to take their assignments. That theme became more clear at the next meeting/ journey. At that second journey the group met in Granite City, one of the cities designated by Chuck Pierce as a Freedom Outpost that has been held back by a throne of iniquity. Pastor Boyer shared information about the early settlers, particularly about the Gillham family. They owned a very large parcel of land encompassing much of Madison County. Most of the businesses in Granite City and the surrounding area, both good and bad, are built on what was Gillham land.
Before traveling to our second location, we had stopped briefly at McDonald’s, and a woman was there who has harassed and attempted to release cursed upon two of the pastors who were present at the alliance’s meeting that day. Dr. Patti explained that the first to contest with Moses were the witches and warlocks that could do the things Moses could do. That was the first level of contest. Later there were levels of contest where God could do what the occult could not. We felt that the “accidental” meeting with the woman at McDonalds was the Lord’s testimony that the Metro East Apostolic Alliance was being given the mantle to spiritually govern the territory at many levels. A witch or other members of the occult may try to steal; but that day we released healing and restoration.
After the initial time at the City Part, we went to the place that was Gillham property where Mrs. Gillham and her children were kidnapped by Kickapoo Indians. We arrive at the place and felt another confirmation that the alliance was there because one job of the righteous is to take back territory and souls. Mr. Gillham had been able to track down his family after 5 years and pay $8000 to ransom them. His lost and stolen family had been restored. The second stop was the property that Mrs. Gillham had purchased with the money she was awarded for her suffering. That testimony of a ransom payment reminded us that Jesus paid the ransom for His family. The ransom makes it possible for prodigals to be restored. There was agreement that we are in a Kingdom season and we are were (an continue to be) in agreement with Kingdom advancement. In this first leg of “walking the land and searching for the ancient paths,” we are seeing and calling things forward that were released but abandoned in former days. We are restoring ancient paths. Then, we are believing that God will give us spiritual revelation to help us build on the moves of God and give us patterns to build the current move of God for the current season.
In closing, Dr. Patti noted that the day was National Voter Registration Day. We registered and functioned as the Ekklesia. We proclaim this official territorial Ekklesia established. We link together yesterday’s and today’s prayers for the release of the captives.
