Our Name 13 Thieves

What does our name mean? Well you can imagine most people have a puzzled look or are a bit perplexed by our name. In fact it scares most when they hear it associated with a church at all! 13 Thieves is our name. Well our name has everything to do with the Heart of God. God desires for are lives to awaken and come back to him to know who He really is. Revelations 3:3 (AMP) says this "So call to mind the lessons you received and heard; continually lay them to heart and obey them, and repent. In case you will not rouse yourselves and keep awake and watch, I will come upon you like a thief, and you will not know or suspect at what hour I will come". What lessons you may ask? Well He sent the ultimate gift to show us the Heart of God. And that gift is Jesus Christ (the Son of God). Jesus being one man gathered to him a specific 12 men. Jesus and the 12 men form 13. These men, starting with the one true man (Jesus), began to take back the hearts of men towards the Heart of God. You see when you truly have an experience with God, it captivates you, and it steals your heart from all the wrong things and brings you to the Truth. Jesus told these 12 men "I will make you fishers of men". Jesus was expressing to them what God wanted with each and every one of us. He wants to take us back. And the encounter with the God is so awesome it will feel like you've been taken by surprise. His Love is that overwhelming.

God describes his coming like a "thief in the night" in 1 Thess. 5:2 in the Bible. And so our name 13 Thieves is born. We are letting God use us to cry out to this young generation, who is in such desperate need of Gods loving power, to come know the Heart of God. We are taking it back! Like a thief in the night! Your about to be taken! Come know Gods heart for you, you've been waiting your whole life to find out!
