RE-DIGGING THE ANCIENT WELLS OF ATLANTA

Walking on Auburn
Hi Everyone,

Since inheriting THE HUB ATLANTA CHURCH this past summer, the Lord has been breaking any idea of “normal church” that we may have had and teaching us “normal Christianity”. With that, I wanted to share a powerful update on our adventures/journey in downtown Atlanta that may involve a part of YOUR destiny. Please share this with anyone as you feel led.

Since relocating The HUB Atlanta downtown, we have taken on a very “different” style of “church”. With instructions from Papa to simply “be the church” in this season, we have been meeting weekly in downtown Atlanta to release the sound of Heaven over our city through worship, prayer & prophesy. We believe the intention of this is to prepare the atmosphere for revival. We have been given an assignment to re-dig the ancient wells of days gone by to bring Atlanta into her God-designed destiny. 

Through the process, He told us to study the history of Atlanta to find specific points of needed prayer. In addition, some prophetic words we have received regarding the resurgence of MLK Jr’s nonviolent movement of love have begun to be confirmed in many ways. We believe the sound of Heaven that Papa is using us to release will have the power to penetrate hearts and dissolve the hatred and division that still exists racially and economically in our city, metro area and southern United States.Note also that while I often speak of bringing “Atlanta” into her destiny, we have seen visions of a whirlwind starting in downtown, moving west, then south, then east, then north, and even healing the land from the Trail of Tears in North Georgia. So for those of you receiving this who are not directly a part of what we’re doing downtown (maybe you even live out of state), you can still be a part of the process for these freedoms to cover our metro area. We believe this will eventually have a regional effect on the whole southeastern US.

In recent weeks, we have taken much time to research and pray over:

  • Underground Atlanta
  • Five Points Train Station (the HUB of the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority)
  • the Zero Mile Post (the original center point of the city of Atlanta)
  • The GULCH (the original Undergound Atlanta and original railway HUB of transportation)
  • Auburn Ave (home & launch pad for MLK Jr.).

At each place, we are sensing the power of God in amazing ways. And each place we have gone was supernaturally revealed to us, as if we are getting one piece of the puzzle at a time. And our directive of where to pray continues to be Spirit-led.

As we were prayerfully walking through Auburn Ave yesterday, one of our HUB / MOW family who was unable to attend was at home being led by Holy Spirit to pray and research more about our great city’s history. She send me a link to an event that happened in 1906, and it will now be our point of convergence this coming Saturday, Feb 14th.

We meet weekly at 1pm in the “G-DECK” which is a Georgia State parking Deck at the corner of Central Ave and Wall St in Downtown Atlanta. Parking is Free. If you plan to attend, please RSVP so we know you are coming and don’t leave the parking garage without you. The areas we will walk and pray this week are within 6 blocks of this parking garage:

Here are some things we ask you to keep in mind:

  • We invite you to join us in person, or at least in prayer as we continue to cleanse our city/metro area and bring “inner-healing” (so to speak) and see the strong holds of the past removed, so that an atmosphere of UNITY and REVIVAL can come forth.
  • Our CALENDAR will always have the latest dates/times we are meetingbut specific location information will be released through these email updates, facebook and our blog. We encourage you to follow along with our updates to pray.
  • YOU may be given a piece of the puzzle to bring freedom to Atlanta and surrounding areasWe know that we are not an exclusive group, and that this mandate of freedom will come through the obedience and unity of many.
  • Please share any revelation you receive regarding the healing/restoration of Atlanta and surrounding areas at info@thehubatlanta.org

Thank you for joining us in prayer for the freedom of our great city, our metro area, and the southeastern United States.Many Blessings~

Here is more about the event in 1906 for those who are interested:
On the afternoon of Saturday, September 22, 1906 Atlanta newspapers reported four alleged assaults, none of which were ever substantiated, upon local white women. Extra editions of these accounts, sensationalized with lurid details and inflammatory language intended to inspire fear if not revenge, circulated, and soon thousands of white men and boys gathered in downtown Atlanta. City leaders, including Mayor James G. Woodward, sought to calm the increasingly indignant crowds but failed to do so. By early evening, the crowd had become a mob; from then until after midnight, they surged down Decatur Street, Pryor Street, Central Avenue, and throughout the central business district, assaulting hundreds of blacks. The mob attacked black-owned businesses, smashing the windows of black leader Alonzo Herndon‘s barbershop. Although Herndon had closed down early and was already at home when his shop was damaged, another barbershop across the street was raided by the rioters—and the barbers were killed. The crowd also attacked streetcars, entering trolley cars and beating black men and women; at least three men were beaten to death.
On Sunday, September 23, the Atlanta newspapers reported that the state militia had been mustered to control the mob; they also reported that blacks were no longer a problem for whites because Saturdaynight’s violence had driven them off public streets. While the police, armed with rifles, and militia patrolled the streets and key landmarks and guarded white property, blacks secretly obtained weapons to arm themselves against the mob, fearing its return. Despite the presence of law enforcement, white vigilante groups invaded some black neighborhoods. W.E.B. Du Bois, an African-American educator, writer and social activist. The riot’s aftermath helped move black activists away from an accommodationist stance and toward the more aggressive push for racial equality advocated by Du Bois. In the wake of the 1906 riot, Du Bois wrote a moving poem called “The Litany of Atlanta.”:  http://www.npr.org/programs/atc/features/2006/sep/raceriot/poem.pdf
