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.
