     There are times when you find someone so refreshingly wonderful that you have to go back five hundred years in history to spot a comparison, and this is a case proven I find in my friend, David Andrade.  The event that I am referring to in David Andrade’s life occurred just a few years ago and the comparable event in Martin Luther’s life was nearly five hundred years ago; I still feel the comparison applies.

 Martin Luther was a simple priest who published “Ninety-Five Theses” that ended up shaking the entire structure of the Catholic Church.  It caused the most dramatic reformation and launched the renaissance that brought the entire European continent into mind-boggling advances in science, art, and other areas of human endeavor.  The event that initiated Martin Luther’s dramatic change is even debated as to whether it actually occurred.  It is said that he nailed the “Ninety-Five Theses” on his Wittenberg church door. Whether that event occurred or didn’t is not as important as understanding that the newly invented printing press published the “Ninety-Five Theses” which were then sent all across the nation of Germany.  Obviously, God chose this man named Martin Luther, because there was more to him than just the 95 questions he introduced about the existing religious dogmas of the church in those days.  In him was a treasure trove of revelations that God wanted the entire European community to explore and have revealed openly to them.  He also wrote many original hymns such as “How Great Thou Art”. His hymns inspired great German composers. He reorganized church structure and reestablished the foundational teaching of salvation itself, declaring that it is not based upon works but upon faith in God alone.  Out of this spiritual movement of reformation came the renaissance movement that gave us great men such as Leonardo DaVinci, Michelangelo, and the list goes on and on.  As you can see, Martin Luther was at the epicenter of a whirlwind of change that God was bringing upon the earth five hundred years ago, and so it is with my friend David Andrade.

 At the end of 2010, I met with David Andrade and numerous other ministries and prophets and discussed the vision that David Andrade had concerning an event to be held at the Rose Bowl on 11/11/11.  The location of the first planning meeting was to be held at a nondescript Los Angeles suburban family restaurant.  As my family got out of the car I looked about the restaurant parking lot and noticed that every car parked there was a little rough around the edges. (As an aside, I knew that types and conditions of cars were of significance to the Los Angeles mindset. One time when I was at a meeting with a president of division of a large L.A. movie studio, this president was so concerned about what car my wife and I were driving that he took us all the way down to the parking lot in his private elevator to observe our car.  As we talked near the car, he rested his hand on it almost as if assuring us that we had driven the appropriate vehicle.) So here I was now in this parking lot and like that president using cars to conclude that nobody significant was going to be at this meeting, when I was interrupted by my daughter, Rocki, as she said, “Daddy, I see a vision of a large sword spinning like a buzz- saw and cutting a line through this parking lot.”  I instantly repented of the previous fleshly thoughts I’d had and realized in the spirit that this meeting that David Andrade had called at this restaurant was significant in the spiritual realm.  After the light lunch served by David, he asked people at the meeting to share what they thought the Lord was saying. The thoughts began with a dear prophetess of the Lord who said she saw “A line drawn in the sand”.   This was from an event at the Texas Alamo where a famous leader drew a line with his sword in the sand and said, “If you are going to stay with us and fight, cross this line.”  A few other people confirmed that they had seen the same type of symbol from God.  Then the prophet Timothy Snodgrass shared that he saw thousands of people entering a large stadium and walking around literally performing  “A line in the sand”.  At that point David Andrade placed a large manila envelope on the table in front of him and pulled out a contract from the City of Pasadena offering the use of the Rose Bowl for a special meeting to be held on 11/11/11.  To our amazement the name that a clerk had randomly given the event was, “A Line In The Sand”.

David knew that this was a confirmation from God that this event truly should be held at the Rose Bowl, and that this was something God was orchestrating way beyond David’s natural human ability to do.  Over the next year David went through a series of meetings, discussions, and even conflicts pulling together all the necessary groups needed for this event to occur.  When “The Line in the Sand” finally occurred, there were so many activities and tornadoes of spirits flowing around the stadium that I was personally stunned and could not even comment on the event for two months.  The one person that I noticed who was cool, calm, and collected and seemed to be aware of everything was David Andrade.

   The number 11 in the Bible means the end of something.  The official attendance count at the Rose Bowl was 11,000 people.  A pastor physically died that day at the Rose Bowl and was brought back to life by the number of people praying around him and the attending paramedics.  Homeland Security was put in charge of the meeting by the United States government because representatives of the countries of Egypt and Israel were both going to be on the stage at the same time, and there was fear of some terrorist attack.  During this and the flurry of activity David was there on the stage praying for unity among the Body of Christ and at the same time deflecting a myriad of attacks from well-meaning ministries desiring to get their moment in the spotlight.  It seemed that everyone knew that Heaven was shining a spotlight on the stadium that day.  As almost two years have gone by, I now realize that there was something even deeper occurring at the event.  The key to properly view it is to understand the treasure chest of beautiful things that God has placed inside the heart of David Andrade.  Just like Martin Luther who moved the walls of religion that stood between the believer and God, David has also identified the walls that stand between all believers in Christ.  I have watched as he skillfully removes these barriers that stand between us, one stone at a time.
I am well aware that something this significant must be revealed over time, and we will gradually realize its impact upon the social network of the church of Christ.  In the last two years I have had private interaction with David Andrade and have noticed the Martin Luther-like skills in his communication along with his sensitivity and desire to see the Body of Christ unite.  Just a few days ago the Lord spoke to me and told me that it is time to declare the power and might of God’s anointing upon this man of God, David Andrade.
