This is a great annual event! It is simply reading God's Word from Genesis to Revelation, out-loud, publicly, around the clock at The Old Court House downtown Lapeer! Volunteers come and read from whatever version of Scripture they are comfortable with or from a large print Bible on-site. There is a small sound system so as not to strain our voices. We are asking area churches, men's & women's groups, youth groups, home fellowships and Bible study groups to sign up! Take a block of time and fill it with your members!
Lapeer County has one of the oldest continuously active courthouses in Michigan. We do the Ezra Project from the Old Court House Downtown Lapeer. We declare that the law of Lapeer County is the Bible...The Word / law library of Yaweh. It supercedes all of man’s laws and all the laws of the prince of the power of the air. God’s law is victorious and mighty to heal, save, deliver, cleanse and raise from the dead. The government of Lapeer County is upon the shoulders of Yeshua and shall manifest through His saints, even before He comes again.
On 2-2-1835 Lapeer became a separate county from Oakland. 1837 was the first time to vote for elected officials (by 520 people). Lord we declare that this county, although a man made Democracy, is submitted to Your theocracy and rule and reign!
The south branch of the Flint River gives rise in Lapeer where the rocks show - and the Indians used that area to cross over. The word "flint" is French for the word “stone." This spot was called LaPierre, but the French Canadian pronunciation is Lapeer. We proclaim that Lapeer is built upon the one and only Rock, Yeshua Ha Mashiach and the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church of Lapeer County. It is strong and flourishing because Your people love You and desire to see Your Kingdom manifesting here!
The first settler was Alvin Hart in 1831 and platted the Village of Lapeer on November 8, 1833.
2 Cities; 18 Townships and 7 Villages - approximately 666 square miles. We proclaim your sovereignty over every part of Lapeer County and its people and government at all levels.
" Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching." 1 Timothy 4:13 NIV
Hi Randy: I enjoyed reading God’s Word in our Lapeer County Courthouse! I would suggest give more notice about the event and times needed. Many seemed to be scrambling last minute and many were wore out (I know you had themidnight shift)! If we give more of a heads up about it, maybe this will eliminate last minute decisions people have made. God Bless you for doing this! What a blessing in our county! Pastor Tim
I would love to give you feedback about my experience with the EZRA project!
I am honored to say the least that you invite me to participate in such a glorious event and I want to say a BIG thank you, I’m overwhelmed with JOY! I brought my boys with me at one of the sittings and allowed them to read a part of scripture, I honestly think that we are making history here with this and I want them to get involved with this so they can see how important Gods word really is. I plan on reserving an 8 hour slot for the next time and really get the people of hillside discipleship church involved as well. The members that did participate absolutely LOVED it and can’t wait to do it again.
Here’s my testimony; I feel God with me quite often as I talk to him BUT, I have never sat and read ANYTHING from Psalms. While I was there I read psalms 5 all the way to psalm 59 I think…and I had to fight back the tears as I’m reading because GOD was sitting there with me the whole time! I felt it Randy.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for what you and Nancy do for the community!
I am glad to have participated. However, I had no idea what to expect. Also, my local Pastor did not receive any info to promote this project. Dan Burger of Lapeer Assembly said he would have pushed it and that he had inquired about it to no avail. I will sign up again.
Thank you, Karen Wynn
I noticed, that while reading out loud, several of Paul's greetings, their complex sentence structure makes them unintelligible. (Using NKJV) I wonder if a paraphrase version might be better for public reading. You know - it's hard enough to understand his writing when taking time for contemplative study. If we are reading for the Holy Spirit it is okay if we groan and stumble over words, so long as we are diligent. If we are reading to the public the material should be intelligible.
