CHAMPAIGN — Lee Marks’ return to the court looked modest in the box score. The Mount Carmel senior finished with eight points and five rebounds Friday against Mt. Zion.

But his defense against Mt. Zion sophomore JC Anderson was game-changing. Marks, a versatile 6-5 wing, helped the Caravan hold Anderson to one point in the second half of their 65-49 victory against the Braves in the IHSA Class 3A state semifinals at the State Farm Center.

Marks had been out since early February with an elbow injury.

‘‘[When I was first injured], I wasn’t sure I was going to come back,’’ Marks said. ‘‘But as the weeks went on, I kept feeling better. I gave practice a shot, and it felt pretty good. My teammates gave me great support, and it really boosted our morale.’’

Anderson, a 6-7 sophomore, scored 10 points in the first six minutes. Then Marks checked in, and everything changed.

‘‘[Marks] posed some different problems with [Anderson] in the paint,’’ Mount Carmel coach Phil Segroves said. ‘‘And it was really our help-side defense that helped.’’

Caravan star Angelo Ciaravino sat with foul trouble for some of the first half and finished with 13 points. Mount Carmel was in rhythm from the start offensively, however, and was more than capable of scoring without Ciaravino.

Sophomore point guard Noah Mister ran the show, finishing with six assists and only one turnover. The Caravan’s starters had only four turnovers combined.

Cameron Thomas and Grant Best each scored 14 points. Mister added 10 and 6-7 senior Christian Uremovich five while also helping on Anderson.

Ciaravino, a Northwestern recruit, has been the focus of opposing student sections throughout the playoffs. He had a few interactions with the Mt. Zion faithful Friday.

‘‘I don’t really care about them at all,’’ Ciaravino said. ‘‘They can say whatever they want. It gets on my nerves a little bit, but I just stay focused on the main goal, and I know they are out there watching us beat their team.’’

Mount Carmel (32-5) took control midway through the third quarter.

Thomas made a three-pointer, and Mister followed with two free throws and a three-pointer to give the Caravan a 46-35 lead.

Anderson led Mt. Zion (35-2) with 17 points and eight rebounds, and Lyncoln Koester added 13 points and five assists.

‘‘They started keying on me more and switched the defensive matchup [after the start of the game],’’ Anderson said. ‘‘I still think I could have done more.’’

The Braves started only one senior, Grant McAtee, and should be a major contender in Class 3A next season, as well.

‘‘It’s just a good experience for us to have,’’ Koester said. ‘‘We’ve grown a lot over the last few years, and this is another steppingstone in the process.’’

Mount Carmel, which won the Class AA state title in 1985, will face DePaul Prep in the Class 3A title game Saturday. The Rams won the conference matchup 41-38 on Feb. 12, but Marks didn’t play in that game.

CHAMPAIGN — When he fractured his right elbow in a Feb. 6 game against Leo, Mount Carmel’s Lee Marks was certain his high school career was done.

But just over a month later, the 6-foot-5 senior guard was back on the court for the Caravan’s first boys basketball state appearance in 39 years.

“As soon as I hit it, I was like, ‘Man, my season is over with,’” Marks said of the injury. “In the moment, I was really sad about it, but I said, ‘It is what it is.’

“But God gave me another chance to play with my teammates.”

Marks scored eight points off the bench in his comeback Friday as Mount Carmel pulled away in the second half to beat Mount Zion 65-49 in a Class 3A semifinal at the State Farm Center.

Cameron Thomas and Grant Best scored 14 points apiece to lead the Caravan (32-5), with Thomas grabbing six rebounds. Northwestern recruit Angelo Ciaravino finished with 13 points and Noah Mister added 10.

Mount Carmel will play at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the state championship game against Catholic League Blue rival DePaul Prep (34-2), a 52-41 winner over Peoria Richwoods.

DePaul beat the Caravan 41-38 on Feb. 12.

Marks, though, worked his way through physical therapy and slowly felt his elbow getting better. He returned to practice Tuesday.

“The excitement kind of built up over the week,” Marks said. “Doing the physical therapy, I started to know that I might have a really good chance of coming back.

“I was able to practice, and then to end up playing and be able to support my teammates and do what I can do for the team, it was really exciting.”

JC Anderson scored 17 points for Mount Zion (35-2) but just one in the second half.

Marks, meanwhile, entered the game late in the first quarter after Ciaravino picked up his second foul and showed no signs of rust, quickly scoring four points.

“It was a great boost,” Thomas said of Marks’ return. “I was super excited he came back. He came in and (scored), and I was really excited for him. I’m glad he’s back.”

So is Mount Carmel coach Phil Segroves .

“Lee’s been a big part of our success for two years now,” Segroves said. “What we didn’t want to do was put any pressure on him. Did we need him? Of course. But his safety has to come first.

“But when he practiced, it was an unbelievable practice. He was flying all over the place. It was great to have him back.”

Friday’s semifinal game was tied 30-30 at halftime, but Mount Carmel seized control by outscoring the Braves 20-10 in the third quarter.

Much of that came with Ciaravino on the bench after picking up his third foul.

Anderson, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, was unstoppable in the first half for Mount Zion, scoring 16 points. But he was held to just one free throw in the second half.

Segroves gave Marks some credit for that.

“We switched up Christian (Uremovich) and Lee, two different types of players,” Segroves said. “I think Lee posed some different problems for him — got a couple tip-outs when they tried to throw the ball inside and got him a little frustrated.”

Mount Carmel is shooting for the program’s second state championship, having won the Class AA title in its only other state appearance in 1985. The Caravan area also looking to follow the school’s football and wrestling teams, which have won state titles this school year.

Having Marks back certainly helps. Despite the long layoff, he was ready to go.

“I was definitely confident,” Marks said. “I knew my teammates were going to support me. They were going to help me out, I was going to help them out, and we were going to do what we do.”

What Is the Biblical Significance of Mount Zion?

Mount Zion is the City outside of Jerusalem, or Israel or Temple of the Mount or the Western Hill, the City of David, the descendant of Christ, the City of our God and the location of Christ’s rule on earth, and it is a spiritual location and an eternal Jerusalem.

What Is the Biblical Significance of Mount Zion?

Zion is one of the most important places that the Bible describes. But is it merely just a place or does it have more significance in the life of our Savior?

We first encounter the word Zion in 2 Samuel 5:7 , as it is written, “David took the stronghold of Zion, that is, the city of David.”

And then we also further read it in 1 Kings 8:1 , “Then King Solomon summoned into his presence at Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the Lord’s covenant from Zion, the City of David.”

And also, in 1 Chronicles 11:4-5 , “The Jebusites who lived there said to David, ‘You will not get in here.’ Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion — which is the City of David.”

And in 2 Chronicles 5:2 , “Then Solomon summoned to Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the Lord’s covenant from Zion, the City of David.”

Based on these verses, Zion plays an important and significant part in the Bible and the history and life of our Lord Jesus Christ, even prior to his coming here one earth. Let us read the Bible further and discuss how significant Zion is to our lives.

The Physical Significance of Zion

The first and obvious significance of Zion is that it is a city, which is physically located on top of a hill outside Jerusalem’s wall. It is also associated with the Temple of the Mount and also the Western Hill. Moreover, Israel is also referred to as Mount Zion.

With this understanding, we can say that Zion is tangible. It can be seen, and it can even be lived in.

But as we further analyze Zion, we will come to realize that it is not merely a tangible city. It is, in fact, a spiritual city that has been part of a long prophecy of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Zion Is the City of David and the “City of our God”

Another importance of Zion is that it is the same as the City of David, which means it is significant because David himself is very significant — so very significant, in fact, because his lineage was the prophesized lineage of our Lord Jesus Christ. We can read this prophecy mentioned in 2 Samuel 7:12-16 saying that the Eternal Kingdom will come from David’s lineage.

“When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.”

We can further read this in the Psalms of the Sons of Korah, as it is written in Psalm 48 ,

A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah. Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain. Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth, like the heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King. God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress.

When the kings joined forces, when they advanced together, they saw her and were astounded; they fled in terror. Trembling seized them there, pain like that of a woman in labor. You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish shattered by an east wind.

As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of the Lord Almighty, in the city of our God: God makes her secure forever. Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness. Mount Zion rejoices, the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments.

Walk about Zion, go around her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation. For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

In this verse, we also see the description of Zion as being the City of our God.

How Can We Learn to Remain Steadfast in Hardship?

It Is the Location of Christ’s Rule on Earth

Zion is also significant because it can be regarded as the location of the rule of Christ during the millennial kingdom. In Revelation 12:5 , it is written, “She gave birth to a son, a male child, who ‘will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.’ And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.”

Also, in Revelation 20:4-6 ,

I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

For God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then people will settle there and possess it; ( Psalm 69:35 ).

For the Lord will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory ( Psalm 102:16 ).

Great is the Lord in Zion;   he is exalted over all the nations ( Psalm 99:2 ).

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed ( Psalm 126:1 ).

It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore ( Psalm 133:3 ).

We can read through these verses that Zion is the place where God bestows His blessing and one of this is our Saviour, Jesus.

Zion Is the Spiritual and Future Eternal Jerusalem

Another significance of Zion is that it is regarded as the future eternal Jerusalem and that it is a spiritual place.

In Isaiah 35:10 , it is written, “And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”

And in Psalm 128:5 , “May the Lord bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.”

In these verses, we can read that God gives prosperity over Jerusalem as He blesses Zion. This is part of His promise to His creations, that the day shall rise, and lives shall prosper.

Zion’s significance can be enumerated into four statements:

1. It has physical significance whereby it is the City outside of Jerusalem or Israel or Temple of the Mount or the Western Hill.

2. It is the City of David, the descendant of Christ.

3. It is also the City of our God and the location of Christ’s rule on earth.

4. Lastly, it is a spiritual location and an eternal Jerusalem.

Mount Zion in the Bible - Scriptures and Meaning

Mount Zion in the Bible

Biblical references of Zion are found throughout the Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments. Learn more about the meaning of this popular biblical term and find Bible verses about Mount Zion in the collection of scriptures below. 

The classical Hebrew term Tsiyon (Zion) is “a Canaanite hill fortress in Jerusalem captured by David and called in the Bible ‘City of David.’" Mount Zion represents “the Kingdom of God” in Revelation 21 and “looks ahead to the New Jerusalem that will descend out of heaven.” Zion can indicate one of three places: the hill where the earliest location of Jerusalem stood; the city of Jerusalem itself; or the dwelling place of God.

Mount Zion is a hill in Jerusalem, located just outside the walls of the Old City. The term Mount Zion is found in the Old Testament first for the City of David ( 2 Samuel 5:7 , 1 Chronicle 11:5; 1 Kings 8:1 ) and later for the Temple Mount, but its meaning has shifted and it is now used as the name of ancient Jerusalem's Western Hill. In a broader sense, the term is also utilized for the entire Land of Israel.

2 Samuel 5:7 ~ Nevertheless, David took the stronghold of Zion, that is, the city of David.

1 Chronicles 11:5 ~ The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, "You will not come in here." Nevertheless, David took the stronghold of Zion, that is, the city of David.

The authors of the New Testament, Matthew, John, and Paul, reference what had already been mentioned in the Old Testament when they speak of Zion. Discover New Testament Bible verses about Zion in the collection of scriptures below:

For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire and darkness and gloom and a tempest and the sound of a trumpet and a voice whose words made the hearers beg that no further messages be spoken to them. For they could not endure the order that was given, "If even a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned." Indeed, so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, "I tremble with fear." But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant , and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. ~ Hebrews 12:18-24

What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, as it is written, "Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame." ~ Romans 9:30-33

So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation-- if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it stands in Scripture : "Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame." So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, "The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone," and "A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense. "They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. ~ 1 Peter 2:1-12

Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps, and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb, and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless. ~ Revelations 14:1-5

Great messages for such a time as this!

I love the anointing and power granted to Lance from God as he addresses generational curses and strongholds. I am thankful for the power that these truths have granted me as I step out in His anointing. Thank you Lance for powerfully proclaiming the way to a free Spirit filled life.

1. I appreciate a copy DVD & CD. 2. Address congregation direction and resulting impact. I shared the set with my pastor. 3. How to view other believers, everyone must choose. When event minded person discovers relationship required. 4. Lance discuss sell-out point. Another way to evaluate a situation: Risk taking.

Lance Wallnau pierces the darkness and brings fresh insights in all he releases. I love the combination of his thundering calls to action as much as his sometimes humour tangents!

This was a new teaching for me and a timely one. I'll need to listen to it several times to digest everything. Great revelation.

Again more Holy Wisdom input. I am buying Lance's teachings for my sons and to give to other young people to assist them in fulfilling their Creative destinies that are innately with them by God's Design - Psalm 139. Betsy Fritcha spiritofgodvoice.com

Lance has a unique training material. Entertaining, yet resourceful and biblically powerful with his unique annointing, impart me a lot. Personally, it change how i view myself, GOD , and the world. Definetly will buy other resources from him.

Haven't had time to listen to all but what I have heard doubles down on Lance's theme of the seven mountains teaching which I need to hear again and again to get it a part of me. It is so practical, I do not know why we have missed it for so long. Thank you for the encouragement.

Very fascinating that some of the Characteristics you brought out was already what I was thinking. I had a dream where I saw a building descend behind the area I was working in. In the dream I asked what is that I was told it was the , Resource and Supply Center. When I woke up God gave me Psalm 132, 48 and 2. So an individual or group can be a Citadel of Mount Zion where God will funnel His Power and Glory like High Priest Joshua in Zechariah 3 verse 6 to 10. Your tapes Confirmed what God was already showing me.

This was stunnjing and so helpful. been studying Zion for a while and so this has so blessed me and gave me answers to some questions I had. thanks again couldnt have come at a better time.. patricia

Excellent material

I had purchased The Mount Zion Mantle for my Pastor. He has viewed this entire series and has said, "it is a very profound revelation for those who desire to accomplish God's assignments." My Pastor then loaned this series to me and said that I must view it. I, personally, have just viewed the first DVD. All I can say is that I'm very excited and anticipating great, fresh revelation and experiences in the Holy Ghost to accomplish my purpose and assignments. In the midst of the chaos and confusion of our day, I know that I can have peace that surpasses all understanding and am endued with Power from on high. I already know that your series is the Lord's answer to my prayers. Thank You, Brother Lance, for this kingdom revelation to help the body of Christ have victory over the enemy's principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places. We have HOPE and we have the POWER! Your series has blessed my Pastor of Rehoboth Christian Church, Logansport, IN and me (Rochester, IN). Thank You and may God richly bless You, in the Name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Hamaschiach!

Love digging deeper in God's incredible Word. So much to learn and find. Enjoy this teaching so much that in only a couple of weeks I have listened to it at least 6-7 times while in my car. Previous review I miss marked the stars!! so sorry.

It was a very good series. A timely word. Praise God.

The Mt Zion Mantle

life is nuts right now no time to view DVDs but am trying to keep up with new videos you release. I always smile and get a pick me up watching you.

Excellent. I love the teaching with diagrams. So many churches don’t realise this truth. It’s clearly for the world today the way it is going.

Excellent! The Church needs to hear this content. It is a new paradigm that will shift the direction we are to go to fulfill the Great Commission. How come this isn't playing on TBN and Daystar?

Love this series. I keep it in my car as my go-to commute companion. Good medicine delivered with humility and humor. I find new treasures every time I listen. Will never lose relevance because it is Spirit-authored. Thanks, Lance.

I got this teaching out of Curiosity initially. Having become familiar with Dr.Lance's teachings on the 7 Mountains, Doing Business supernaturally and Convergence, I really did not know how Mount Zion would fit in to Dr. Lance's unique message. Having listened, I have been thoroughly blessed, inspired and envisioned afresh to go to the summit of what God has called me to. To be the best by reaching the top of the mountain God has for me. God bless you Dr. Lance

This teaching has really blessed me. It has opened my mind to a new level of revelation. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Outstanding. Confirmed what I believe and was enjoyable to watch and listen too!

Interesting & inspiring!

Loved it! So much info packed in. The "Sons of Issachar" / Remnant connection really hit me. As always speckled with a little humor to keep it fun.

Been taking Pete Vargas program at Christmas.

Very good stuff to chew on and take in

I've only had the time to watch the first D.V.D. but I loved it. I've watched it twice and really need to watch it again. Will be back to watching after the holidays. Bobbie Trunk

Mount Tsion/Zion is not the highest point in Yerushalayim/Jerusalem. Jerusalem is plural in Hebrew, and has 3 high points. The walled Temple mount. Looking from the mount of Olives, a higher point is the "City of the Great King," originally Melchizedek, then later occupied by David, Solomon, and Rehaboam. The "City of the great king is at the top of mount Tsion to the north and was a walled city which is why David caught Bathsheba bathing. The actual highest point in Jerusalem is Mt Moriah, Gen 22 where Abram to his son Yitzak/Isaac to offer him. But it is there scripture God would offer "Himself," as a Ram in place of Isaac. Mt Moriah is Where Jesus was crucified right on top of Goliath's head which David buried there. Jesus cross was lowered into a hole directly above Goliath's head hence the name Gol Gatha for Goliath of Gath. Sincerely Rev. Dr Richard Stewart ThD & PhD

Excellent, thank you so much for the truth in this world

I have not listened to them yet

I was surprised with the speed at which the cds arrived. Usually when I buy products from ministries based in America they take 4-5 weeks to arrive but yours took just under 2 weeks! Amazing! And the message in the cds is very educative and inspiring. However both cds have the same message yet I expected the 2nd CD to be a continuation of the 1st one. Overall your messages are so timely and needed!

Liked it..but was expecting there to be a description of the mantle or prayer time at the end...was no mention of a mantle

The spiritual meat that Lance serves in this video will help to motivate you to seek a deeper understanding of God's calling in your life. Lance revealed a personal source of wisdom and revelation that was a pleasant surprise to me yet revealed a profound truth of how God often works through chosen vessels that may not obtain broad recognition yet are willing to remain faithful in the small things that does not go unnoticed by God Almighty. These faithful ones shall someday become the "firstborn" of God and enjoy a closer relationship with the Firstborn Son and King of a new world. Powerful lessons that are also very relevant to our current world and challenges that we face every day.

Great service, great content! Thank you

Amazing insights!

Fascinating how Lance describes where I want to be. I’m heading in that direction!

I purchased this set as a gift but listened to it myself before giving I away. Now I wish I could hear it again as there was more than I could integrate in one session. Nevertheless, I believe it opened up something I can't identify.

excellent thanks so much...mal

Helped me very much.

HI Beloved I found the above packed with relevant information. It was an update for sure. Many thanks.

I thought The Mount Zion Mantle was extremely instrumental since I am soon going to see the shaking of my Church. Now my perspective is open so wide by learning about the seven mountains. Thank you so much.

Not a product I would recommend to an international audience if you are not familiar with American culture and language. There are a number of references and comments made which can leave you confused. I was able to make the links because of prior knowledge and experience. It helps to watch it with the video because he illustrates what he says with his drawings.

This teaching will help you to understand your purpose and mission and why you are placed in the sphere that you're in.

The Dvd's Are Fantastic! I'm going over them again!

Your insight is incredible!

Audible was a little hard to follow, so I used written version. Good information!

A MPE was included with 17 messages instead of 4 and each played only a few minutes.

Finally was able to listen to it. Enjoyed it very much. Fixing to pass it on to a friend.

Lance's teaching are eye open and challenge you to consider how you think about life. This teaching is no different.

Best teaching I have heard on this subject! Heretofore, I have only heard financial definitions and they did not resonate with my. Spirit. Thank you.

I am sorry I haven't gotten back to you.>I enjoyed The Mont Zion Mantle very much>> I was happy with the CD <too, it gave me more time to soak in it and take notes >> It really talked to me>>

Good stuff. Deeper than his Facebook messages.

I own a company and decided to take a vacation and stay home... I ordered The Mount Zion and Mantle and it arrived the day my "Staycation" began! I watched it and LOVED it so much! I asked the Lord who my Eclasses was in my business. He showed me and I have ordered this for all them! We are going to raise up Zion in our part of the marketplace and bring forth the 100 Fold for his Kingdom in this place! Thank you Lance and thank you to your Mother for prophesying your ministry! Blessings! Traci Nicodemus

Was so blessed by this teaching. Gave me better understanding of relating to my brothers and sisters, whether 30, 60, or 100-fold! Loved his story about one-hump and two-hump camels! Lance, you are truly a gift to the Body of Christ during this season, and very practical regarding market-place evangelism. Blessings!!

I have never thought of the accelerating mantle. How amazing is the revelation!

Delivered almost instantly. Content was and is amazing.

It really opening up my mind about where I am now and what I need to do to move forward... totally recommend this material.

Wonderful study! Everyone in the group has learned a lot! We have all learned where we fit in the 30,60,100 ! Thank you so much!

Love your messages. Thank you the man of God.

I love it. I've watched it a couple of times so far and realize I have a LOT to learn. VALUABLE information and inspiration!

Absolutely amazing! Excellent insight. Definitely inspired by YHWH! I highly recommend it!

Wonderful product! Read it once and watched it once. I'm not done with it! Thank you!

I love all of Wallnau, so much in depth training and deep teaching. Amazing training.

I found this teaching not only encouraging-- TO STAY THE COURSE-- but very informative regarding different places on the "Kingdom Walk" and finding one's place and on your mountain of assignment in order to bring God's righteous in!!!

Such clear teaching! I am so grateful to have this understandable tool. Thank you!!

Have watched it personally 3x and studied it in small group. New insights that gave me several a-ha moments! Seeking convergence and am starting to see major real life shifts as I say yes to God's script. Pressing in to Zion.....and taking the mountains!

It was so good! I kept saying "Yes!" out loud as I listened. Lance is so right on!!!

I'm so GRATEFUL for the revelation of information! So much clarity of what has happened and happening in my life. Thank you Lance Wallnau for this information! Moving forward in confidence! Annette Balaba

What a great and timely word!

I love the tapes I received on The Mount Zion Mantles. Very informative and I can't wait to share them with my friends

This resource is a must-have for anyone with a desire to make a positive impact in the area of their God-given calling.

This has opened my eyes to some deep truth. Very informative and inspirational.

  • Goofs Ramirez's training appears to take place on Mount Royal, particularly around the Belvedere (during the remote snowmobile scene). This whole area is a well-known city park as well as a popular tourist area, which offers a great view of Montreal's skyline that has been captured in many photographs. This makes it a very unlikely area to hold a covert training operation.

Annibal Ramirez : What do you think is out there, Maura? A safe little world with your shopping malls, you little league and ballet lessons? Hey! People are killing, Maura. And I'm one of them. Not neat and surgical like firing a missle from some sub but close enough so his brains splattered on me. And they weren't even the enemy Maura. It was to keep from blowing a cover. I've killed men, I let a friend die, I betrayed everything I've ever believed in. And yes, I've fucked other women. And you know what's worse? I've made you and the children a target because someone out there is going to kill you unless I kill him first. That's my job, Mona. And if you don't mind, I'm late for work.

Mt. Zion takes home fourth place at State

C HAMPAIGN (WCIA) — Mt. Zion boys basketball looked like they belonged in the first half of the Class 3A State Semifinal, heading into the locker room tied with Mount Carmel at 30. But in the second half, sophomore JC Anderson and the Braves couldn’t get to the net falling 65-49.

“I wanted to come out and punch them in the mouth,” Anderson said. “I got going, my shots were falling, and in the second half they obviously were a lot more aggressive with me.”

Anderson dropped 16 points in the first half to lead all scorers.. but one free throw was all he was able to find in the second. The Caravan doubled up the Braves in the third and kept it up in the final frame, stepping up the defense for a double-digit win.

“They turned their aggressiveness up,” MTZ head coach Dale Schuring said. “Kind of got us a little bit out of what we wanna do and we didn’t execute great and the biggest thing is we just didn’t make shots.”

Mt. Zion fell to Peoria Richwoods 62-50 in the Third Place Game on Friday night.

Mt. Zion takes home fourth place at State

"The Church is Moving On!"

African Methodist Episcopal Church of New Brunswick, New Jersey

Plaque.jpg

Our History -

“The African Methodist Episcopal Church grew out of the Free African Society (FAS) which Richard Allen, Absalom Jones, and others established in Philadelphia in 1787 when officials at St. George’s Methodist Episcopal Church pulled blacks off their knees while praying at the altar which they had helped to build.”**

It is important to note that slavery began in the State of New Jersey in the early 17th century. New Jersey passed a law abolishing slavery in 1804 and instituted a process of gradual emancipation. The law made African Americans free at birth, but required children born to slave mothers to serve lengthy apprenticeships as a type of indentured servant until early adulthood. New Jersey was the last northern state to abolish slavery completely. 

Thirty eight years before the last slaves in New Jersey were freed in 1865, Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church was organized. In 1827 records show that Joseph and Jane Hoagland along with other Blacks in the New Brunswick, New Jersey, area were founders of the Church. It is not known whether the founders were free or slaves or a combination of the two. 

The property for the first building is reported as “a lot sized 30 x 13.5 sq.ft.” purchased for $417.73 from Abraham S. Clark and his wife. The membership of the congregation at that time was thirty persons. By December 12, 1829, the congregation held the title to property bought and paid for, and located on Division Street, in New Brunswick, New Jersey, upon which the first Church was erected. The first Mount Zion was a small, frame structure that looked like “the little red school house” so dear to the hearts of our forefathers. There was a burying ground around it. The men sat on one side of the Church, and the women on the other. The Officers sat in what is known to us as “The Amen Corner.” 

During the early days, Mount Zion did not have a regular Pastor. Circuit riders came and preached, and then rode off on horseback to the next preaching assignment. To date, there have been 70 Pastors assigned to Mt. Zion. The first registered Pastor was Rev. Richard Robinson who served for two years from 1832-1834. It was not until the assignment of Rev. Solomon Hill (1938-1949) that a Pastor served for more than three years. Rev. Hill served as Pastor for eleven years. Rev. Hill was a very active member of the greater New Brunswick Area. He was a community-oriented Pastor and was loved throughout the area. He installed a new system of bookkeeping and business administration which improved the financial standing of the church. During his Pastorate the Church was stabilized for the first time. 

Following Rev. Hill, Rev. W. C. Cook served from 1949 -1959. Under his leadership, Mt. Zion was renovated both inside and out. He served on the Boards of The Neighborhood House, and the New Brunswick Chapter of the American Red Cross. 

Rev. James W. Waters followed Rev. Cook as our Pastor from 1959-1964. He, too, assumed a very prominent role in community affairs. He was an officer of the Ministerial Alliance of New Brunswick, the New Brunswick Council of Churches and served on the Board of the New Brunswick Mount Zion AME Church - “186 Years of Reflecting God’s Glory” 2 Corinthians 3:18 

Urban League. When he ran for Mayor, Rev. Waters was the first of our race to run for public office in the history of New Brunswick. One of the most significant events of the years of Rev. Waters’ administration was the organization of the North Stelton A.M.E. Church during the conference year 1963-1964. Pastor Waters with the able assistance of Rev. Anna Howard conducted a survey and thereby determined the need for a church in the rapidly growing North Stelton Community of Piscataway Township. 

The longest serving Pastor to date was Rev. Henry A. Hildebrand who served for 37 years. Shortly before Rev. Hildebrand’s assignment to Mt. Zion, a Building and Expansion Fund was established at Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church on Division Street. On June 29, 1964, a $238.80 deposit was the first made to this account. One of the most notable events during Rev. Hildebrand’s Pastoral term was our move into this edifice on October 10 and 11, 1987, after a seven-year struggle from the ground breaking ceremony to the occupying of this building. The list of accomplishments that Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church made while he was pastor is too lengthy to list in this brief narrative. However, we have on file in the Alice Archibald History Room a book written in 1994 to celebrate his thirty-year assignment to Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church - The Thirty Year-Pastoral Pilgrimage of The Reverend Henry A. Hildebrand. He continued to serve for seven more years. 

Rev. Dr. Joseph Antoine Hooper served from 2001 through 2009. Rev. Dr. Hooper earned his doctoral degree while pastoring Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church. Under his leadership, the Praising Healthy Team and the Mt. Zion Pre School were established under the auspices of the CDC (Community Development Corporation). In addition, the Mt. Zion CDC partnered with The Leewood Real Estate Group to build the Mt. Zion Leewood Homes in New Brunswick. Under Rev. Hooper’s leadership, our membership grew exponentially, Mt. Zion’s Praise Dancers were formed, and the parsonage was renovated. 

After Pastor Hooper was reassigned to another congregation, Bishop Richard Franklin Norris assigned Rev. Daylan K. Greer, Sr. He served three and a half years from June 2009 through January 2013. Under his leadership, the Mt. Zion Acolytes were installed. 

In January 2013 The Rt. Rev. Gregory G. M. Ingram appointed Rev. Eric Ray Billips and Rev. Myra Turner Billips (known to us as “The Billips Team”) as Co-Pastors. They are the first Pastoral husband and wife team to be assigned in the First Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Pastor Myra Billips represents the first female Pastor of Mt. Zion, New Brunswick. Under their leadership the spirituality of Mt. Zion and community has been positively impacted by these two Pastors who are committed to glorifying God and the growth of HIS Kingdom. 

On June 16, 2018, at the First District's Annual Planning Meeting in Philadelphia-PA, the Rt. Rev. Gregory G.M. Ingram assigned the Reverends Drs. W. Golden and Mattie Ard Carmon as the 70th Pastors of Mt. Zion AME Church of New Brunswick. Both Senior Pastor W. Golden, and Assistant Pastor Mattie, came with strong ministry and business credentials, as well as many years of successful pastoral experience. Under their leadership, Mt. Zion has returned to growth and authentic Christian ministry. The Church has also become debt free for the first time in 43-years; and, the Church's CDC Pre-K School has been revitalized. The officers and members are grateful that in "The Year of Restoration" (Bishop Ingram's 2018-19 First District Theme), God blessed Mt. Zion with new Pastors who are well equipped to provide the leadership needed to restore, revive, and rebuild Mt. Zion as Christ's Great Commission AME Church serving the Greater New Brunswick and Middlesex County area!

Patriot’s Tey Barbour takes over; Md. private girls’ programs get postseason event

High school basketball notes.

the assignment by mount zion

Patriot boys’ basketball coach Sherman Rivers tells his No. 8 Pioneers they will remember the journey, not the wins. A bit cliché, sure. And yes, maybe it resonates less for the players who have been to three straight state semifinals and are headed to their second straight Virginia Class 6 title game Saturday in Richmond.

But for senior Tey Barbour, you can tell this feels a bit different. At this point in years past, the Harvard commit was preparing for the AAU season, having never played on a team with a winning record before transferring from Osbourn before the season. He’s giddy.

Boys’ basketball Top 20: Sidwell Friends is back on top of D.C.

“You see a different level of bounce in his step,” Rivers said. “It’s funny. I say he’s enjoying the ride; really, you could say that he’s possibly driving the bus.”

What Rivers is referencing: Barbour has been one of the two best players in Northern Virginia this year, alongside Jordan Scott of No. 7 South Lakes, which Patriot will play Saturday. Both teams are eying their first state championship.

Early in the season, Barbour had to find his way as a leader on a new team. In spurts, that meant he deferred too often. The staff quickly course-corrected, telling Barbour he had to “be who he is” rather than try to placate others. He would find a way to fit into the up-tempo, ball-sharing, defensive-minded culture while still getting shots off.

Since the new year, he hasn’t missed a beat, often asking for the top defensive assignment while shooting over 80 percent from the free throw line, over 60 percent from inside the arc and nearly 40 percent from three. And he has had a big smile throughout.

“I’m not saying that the other guys don’t enjoy it; it’s kind of like a ‘been there, done that’ sort of vibe compared to ‘Man, this is exciting,’ ” Rivers said. “You usually see that in your young guys. It’s really refreshing to see from an older kid that is finally getting an opportunity to show his outstanding basketball ability from the biggest stage in the state.”

Md. private girls’ programs get postseason event

Last winter, four local media members put together a new postseason tournament for private schools in Maryland. In its first year, the Maryland Private School State Basketball Tournament was a success, crowning Mount Zion Prep as its champion.

As part of the setup process for that tournament, one of the founders, Marc Stern, had several discussions with Bullis Athletic Director Justin Leith about using the Potomac school as a venue. During one of those conversations, Leith — also the school’s girls’ basketball coach — raised the idea of a girls’ event. Stern liked it right away.

“I had already been thinking about the girls’ side of things,” Stern said. “But that conversation really made it a priority.”

Girls’ basketball Top 20: St. John’s vaults to the top spot

Stern knew the first thing he needed to do was familiarize himself with the local girls’ landscape. As the founder of Capitol Hoops, he had mostly covered boys’ games over the years. So he connected with several coaches and organizers around the area, including Meredith Davis, coordinator of the She Got Game Classic series. Together, they built an eight-team tournament.

It’s the first time in a while there will be an event to crown a Maryland state private school champion.

“Most coaches we talked to seemed pretty eager for an opportunity like this,” Stern said.

The top two seeds in the tournament are Bishop McNamara and Bullis. The semifinal games will be played Wednesday at Elizabeth Seton, and the championship will be Friday night at Eleanor Roosevelt.

“We want to give these teams something else to play for at the end of the year,” Stern said.

Jalen Rougier-Roane, Sidwell Friends: The junior scored 15 points and earned game MVP honors as the Quakers completed a D.C. State Athletic Association three-peat .

Clarksburg rebounds from disappointment

The Clarksburg girls entered the Maryland state playoffs in perhaps the worst way possible.

On Feb. 23, the Coyotes looked as if they would coast to a Montgomery County championship, holding a commanding halftime lead over Bethesda-Chevy Chase. It all fell apart: The Barons marched back , and the would-be victors trudged home.

Champions across the D.C. area: Here’s who’s winning titles this winter

Clarksburg’s players said little after the game, Coach Sissy Natoli recalled, but they showed their desire to improve with a spirited week of practice. Exactly a week later, the Coyotes were the ones who came back, taking down local rival Seneca Valley, 50-46, in front of a packed home crowd.

“It was pretty loud in the gym. Sometimes it was so loud you’re just trying to call a couple offensive sets and you have to rely on your fingers more so than your voice,” Natoli said. “. . . It was just like Friday night lights: great basketball at the right time.”

The three Turner sisters scored 92 percent of the team’s points. Senior Trinity, junior London and freshman Destiny had 13, 18 and 15 points, respectively.

The county championship loss made Clarksburg hungry for victory, Natoli said, but the Coyotes still fell behind early. The Eagles’ fast-paced attack left them just trying to catch their breath. A few timeouts slowed the pace.

Seneca Valley took a four-point lead into the final quarter, when Clarksburg outscored it by eight to advance to Wednesday’s region final — where the Coyotes’ postseason journey ended last year — at Frederick.

Flowers learns from county title loss

The day after his girls’ team lost, 52-51, to Gwynn Park in the Prince George’s County championship game Feb. 23, C.H. Flowers Coach Roderick Hairston sat down the Jaguars to reflect.

“In that conversation, they revealed that they underestimated Gwynn Park, and they don’t want to do that again,” Hairston said.

No loss is a good loss, Hairston said, especially to a Yellow Jackets team that Flowers beat by 18 points early in the season. But if there’s any consolation, the county championship defeat served as a learning experience for a young unit with little postseason familiarity.

“It made us better,” Hairston said. “I told them it’s like a mulligan in golf, where you get another crack at it without penalty.”

The Jaguars, who earned a first-round bye in the Maryland Class 4A playoffs after an 18-2 regular season, seemed to have learned their lesson.

At home Friday, Flowers dominated Wise, 67-38, to advance to the region final against Eleanor Roosevelt on Wednesday. The Jaguars beat the Raiders by at least 30 points in both of their regular season meetings.
