Apostle Ellis Smith
Speaking at New Song Community Church
October 9, 2011

"On  11/11/11 something that is unprecedented is going to happen. I don't mean just in Detroit, I don't mean just in America - for the world.

Lou Engle has something on him that's crazy.  It's an igniting contagious  anointing that eclipses cultural barriers, religious barriers, racial barriers, denominational barriers, gender barriers, generational barriers.  There is something on him that eclipses all of that and engages God's people to one thing. [unclear] that one thing has to do with an intimate relationship with our King as it relates to our prayer life, a life of sacrifice and fasting, a lifestyle of worship. So when he has called this solemn assembly referred to as TheCall at Ford Field, Detroit is the most unique one he's ever done.  

I've talked extensively with him about with this. Couple weeks ago, last week actually, we sat in my truck. I was talking to him [Lou Engle] and Francis Frangipane about Detroit and how pivotal this upcoming meeting is and why I believe it is by divine appointment. Let me tell you why I believe that.

Detroit is the most religious city in America. Because it's the most religious city there are reasons for that but I want get into that, because I don't have time, but believe me on that. There is no other city in America that's even close. Because of that religious spirit, okay, that's here, it was more akin to allowing Islam to have a root here. That's why there are more people of the Islamic religion in the Metro Detroit area than anyplace else in the world except for the Middle East.    Because it found a kindred spirit - a religion.

Islam is a false religion.  It doesn't move people in the things of God.  Islam is lame.  People are decrepit, cripple, they can't move forward. It's a perverse religion.  It's kind of what he's talking about in Acts 2.  What I'm saying to you is Detroit had to happen, what we're talking about right now, because we have to break these barriers that have hindered us in so many ways.  

When Lou first came here and I began to reach out to the black leaders in this city, somehow, I don't know how this happened to me. Some kind of Mr. Magoo experience, I don't know. But I just ended up being the point person for this.  I'm like I didn't ask for this. I wasn't praying this to God, "I want to do this." No, I will let someone else do it and I will follow them.  But somehow God sought this to fall in my lap.  So, I've been the key person talking to these leaders - black leaders, bishops, apostle, elders, pastors, what have you, and none of them, not one had ever heard of Lou Engle or The Call - not one. I was hoping I would find one - none of them!  I went to the largest churches in the city. Most of them are friends of mine. I know them personally. One of them, megachurch - thousands. He said,  "Ellis, I have never heard of Lou Engle." Then I gave him the website information, had him go and look at the video. And he said, "My God, I don't know how this guy has done things this huge, this large. I've never heard of him."

I told him why.  Because what God is doing now isn't based on personality.  The only face to this is the Lord Jesus Christ.  This is not about self-promotion, my ministry, my anointing, my entourage. None of that stuff. It's all about Him. So that's why you've never heard of this guy before.  Different ones, every who has actually heard Lou, not one of them have heard Lou and said, you know what, I don't think I can be a part of this.  Everyone whose ever heard him says where do I sign up."

I have visited Detroit on the purpose of my easy essay writing projects then i came to know it's the most beautiful and religious place. So far nice things are explained here in your article which was amazing.
