Two 40 days Prayer and Fasting Taking Place Simultaneously From March 1st to April 9th
We are introducing two 40-day fasting prayer calls from March 1st to April 9th:
- 40 days prayer watch for Taiwan : We are convinced that Taiwan plays a key role in Asia in the Kingdom of God. In 2013, Chuck Pierce prophesied that the enemy wants to destroy Taiwan, but the God will take a hold of Taiwan and deliver Taiwan from the bondage of the power of darkness with His mighty hand. Taiwan is now facing the challenge of another wave of homosexuality. The body of Christ in Taiwan is calling the churches for a 40-day prayer and fasting. We also call on the global intercessors to stand with Taiwan. We will continue to post prayers for Taiwan’s “Sexual Life Law.” May God’s will be done in Taiwan as it is in heaven!
- Lou Engle’s “The Send” prayer ministry calls for 40 days of Jesus fasting and praying [ click here for details ] Lou is one of the key leaders of the American prayer movement. 20 years ago God called him to the United States and even overseas to gather children of God and pray. God started the “call” prayer movement through him, and paved the way for the revival of American, including repentance for the “Trail of Tears” first nation’s forced migration, repentance to awaken the public for the sins of murdering baby, to stop abortion, and overturn the “Roe v. Wade” and so on. This year, God led him to stop the “call” prayer meeting that has been going on for more than 20 years, and instructed him to start The “send” prayer meeting in this new era. Recently, more than 59,000 young people were gathered in Florida on February 23, and countless young people responded to God’s call and were willing to be sent to universities, high schools, home communities and countries. During the meeting, Lou called for 40 days Jesus fast and pray starting from March 1. We believe, the revival of the United States will lead to a global revival. May God mobilized a new “Jesus Movement” to lead millions of young people around the world back to God!
God is shaking the earth in acceleration, He wants us to align with Him. Although we just ended a 40-day global fasting prayer, we encourage everyone to seek the Lord for these two 40-day fasting prayer calls and watch God do great things for us in 2019!
Praise Report: Last week, the Waters of the Sea of Galilee Rose Nearly 1 Meter!
Israel’s water situation has improved – yet the Sea of Galilee is still around 4 meters below the full line. It has risen about 2.5 meters this rainy season with almost one meter of that just this past week! So we are still trusting and asking God to fill the whole lake up and to allow all the aquifers in this nation to also be full. Please continue to pray along with us and be encouraged as our God has sent a plentiful rain, by which You upheld Your inheritance when it was weary. (Psa. 68:9)

【Event: Freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota recently tweeted an anti-Semitic comment deemed divisively unacceptable by Washington. Her anti-Israel view backfired immediately.
Democrats and Republican Party leaders, colleagues, President Trump and Vice President Pence, and arrays of ranking leaders across the political and social arena, have since demanding adequate apologies from her. Immediately, a petition filed for ‘the Million Signatures March’ by PJTN requesting her resignation. V.P. Pence cited her apology was inadequate and insisting that she should ‘face consequences’:
‘Rep. Ilhan’s tweet was a disgrace and her apology was inadequate. Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress, much less the ‘Foreign Affairs Committee’ (where Omar is currently assigned to). Those who engage in anti-Semitic tropes should not just be denounced, they should face consequences for their words.’
Cardoze-Moore, president of PJTN (Proclaiming Justice to the Nations) revealed: ‘Ilhan Omar tricked her electorate into voting for her by lying about her support for Israel.’ (including her fraudulent marriage and immigration status). (Jere 17:9)
‘Omar supports the destruction of the State of Israel and is a virulent anti-Semitic with close connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. We cannot afford to stand by as she continues to sow religious hatred.’ (Psa. 10:7)
After the mid-term election, Omar told ‘Muslim Girls’ that she believes in and supports the BDS Movement (works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians), and will fight to make sure people’s right to support BDS isn’t criminalized.’ (Num. 24:9)
Ilhan Omar was glad her tweet sparked attention and debate. From her perspective, it’s important for her to present a different view about allies’ peace for the region (US is ally for Israel). Omar along with Muslim Democrat Rep. Tlaib of Michigan are indeed provoking the conversation on Capitol Hill over the US’ long standing relationship with Israel by speaking critically against the Israeli government over its treatment of Palestinians.
As they challenged the political status quo over Israel in Washington, Omar and Tlaib are facing intense criticism from both parties. Polling does show shifting sentiment among Democrats in their views of Israel and Palestinians. A Pew Poll last year found that support of Israel among Democrats and Independents have fallen, and support has risen among Republicans and that Democrats are divided over whose side of conflict they sympathize more with. Rep. Tlaib, however, has faced public push back within the ranks of House Democrats for planning to lead a congressional delegation to the West Bank, where her grandmother still lives, under different initiative and agenda?
When Rep. Lee Zeldin, Republican of New York, noted Omar supports the BDS Movement, she quote Omar 2012 statement, ‘Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.’ Rep. Zeldin argued that rather than supporting Israel and countering anti-Semitism, Democrats ‘are now empowering it.’ (Gen. 27:29)
Born-Alive Survivors’ Protection Bill
- Psalm 22:9-10 ‘Yet You are He who brought me forth from the womb; You made me trust when upon my mother’s breast. Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother’s womb.’
- Amos 1:13 ‘Thus says the Lord, “For three transgressions of the sons of Ammon and for four I will not revoke its punishment, because they ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead in order to enlarge their borders.’
- Luke 1:43-44 ‘And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord would come to me? For Behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy.’
【Event: Democrats Senators blocked the Born-Alive Protection Act on 2/25/2019 with 53-44 senate votes, Republican Senators are short of 7 votes to make 60 votes to pass. The bill was sponsored by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) and cosponsored by 49 GOP senators. Two Republicans were not present at the vote due to flight delays, one with schedule issue. Three Democrats voted to support(Psa 22:9-10)
The ‘Born-Alive Abortion Survivors’ Protection Act’ would have required that ‘any health care practitioner present’ at the time of a birth, ”to exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other children born alive at the same gestational age.”
President Trump tweeted Democrats after the result: Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrats’ position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies after birth. This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.’ (Amos 1:13)
Senator Sesse concluded, reminded senate vote shouldn’t have been about politics but is about having a heart. A baby has dignity and worth. Today is a sad day in the United States Senate.
Politics without Conscience is Inhumanism
Democrats criticized Republicans are extremists, this is a anti-science bill attempted to inflict medically unnecessary restrictions (to save the newborn after botched abortions) on clinics, spread dangerous anti-choice lies, and threaten healthcare.
- Democrats Pro-Choice: This Act (from Republicans) is to keep women from having access to abortion. It meant to intimidate doctors and restrict patients’ access to (abortions) care and has nothing, nothing to do with protecting children, (D-NY Chuck Schumer)
- Republicans Pro-Life: It isn’t about new restrictions on abortion. It isn’t about changing the options available to women. It’s just about recognizing that a newborn baby is a newborn baby. Evidently, the far left (Democrats Party) is no longer convinced that all babies are created equal. (R-KY Senator Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell) (Luke 1:43-44)
Apparently, all six Democrats running for presidential 2020 voted against the bill. The list includes: Sen. Cory Booker (NJ), Sherrod Brown (OH), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Kamala Harris (CA), Amy Klobuchar (MN), and Elizabeth Warren (MA), And Independent Bernie Sanders (VT).
This is the demonic demonstration of Democrats tipping immorality. Their goal arrives to abort all babies, including those escaped botched abortions. President Trump is evaluating options to block this Act. (Job 31:15)
Prayer Alert: Iran Is Plotting A “New Holocaust” Against Israel
More than a million tourists visit the Sea of Galilee each year but the biblical lake is shrinking after several years of drought. Israel is having a rainy winter and there’s snow on Mount Hermon but the country is still suffering from a water shortage after five years of drought. Israel’s rainy season begins in late October and continues until mid-March. After that, it usually doesn’t rain.
- Iran On A Path of Expansion of Islamist Terror Its Post Islamic Revolution: In 1979, the world was introduced to the menacing glare of the Ayatollah Khomeini. His Iranian revolution ousted the Shah of Iran, a US ally. Its leaders began to purge the country of western influence and set Iran on a path of expansion of Islamist terror. During the revolution, the US was dubbed “The Great Satan.” Still, most of their hatred is reserved for the country they call “the Little Satan”: Israel. For four decades they have vowed to wipe it off the map.
- The Clash Between Israel and Iran: Middle East expert Michael Widlanski tells CBN News, “I think a clash is inevitable. Lebanon is so well armed with Hezbollah missiles and rockets that Iran can bombard all of Israel for weeks; Israel could face not ten rockets, not 100 rockets, but 2,500 rockets every day.” He continued, “Iranians want Shia Islam to be the face of Islam. That means they want to go after Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait. They want to go after all their neighbors and project their force all the way to the Mediterranean and to the Atlantic. They have a real, real expansionist process, which is similar to what the Communists and the Nazis had. This is not just a religious calling. This is very serious, power politics, strategy-playing.” (Source: CBN NEWS/Kingdom Revival Times 2019.02.26）
The US Vice President warned that Iran is plotting a new Holocaust against Israel:
US Vice President Mike Pence held a press conference on the 2/13 to remind European and Middle Eastern leaders that Iran is plotting a “new Holocaust” against Israel. He urged leaders to condemn Iran together, “Anti-Semitism is not just a mistake, but evil; it must be confronted. No matter when and where it rises, the world must condemn it.”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced on the 2/11 during the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution that if the US military attacked Iran, he would “level Israel’s Tel Aviv and Haifa.”
On 2/14, Pence condemned France, Germany and Britain for allowing their entrepreneurs to conduct business in Iran. He called for “the European Union’s allies to abandon the Iranian nuclear agreement and work with US to exert necessary economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran.” He said it is time for the Iranian people, the regime and the world to have peace, security and freedom.

Pray For Israeli Election
【Current events: Israel will hold a general election on April 9. Over the past two months the Israeli government has undergone unusually dramatic turbulence. Institutional shaking in politics and national security has steadily increased. Through the shakings, God is graciously calling Israel to turn back to Him. We know that most Christians abroad are especially fond of PM Netanyahu. Mr. Netanyahu has done a superb job as ambassador to the nations. We want him to stay in office—as long as God wants him there. We do not know how long that is.
It appears likely the prime minister will be indicted this month on charges of criminal corruption. However, he may not be entirely innocent of wrongdoing. Whatever the situation, we pray he will humbly cry out to God for any needed forgiveness, deliverance and direction. (If Netanyahu is indicted before the election, that will probably not in itself disqualify him from serving another term in office—if his party gains sufficient votes and if he is able to form a coalition.)】(Source：Light of Zion 2/9/2019）】
Pray for the Crisis in Venezuela
【Current events: President Nicolas Maduro’s forces fire tear gas and buckshot on activists trying to deliver humanitarian aid in violent clashes that left two people dead and some 300 injured. For weeks, the U.S. and regional allies had been amassing emergency food and medical kits on Venezuela’s borders in anticipation of carrying out a “humanitarian avalanche” by land and sea to undermine Maduro’s rule. Juan Guaido has called on the international community to consider “all options” to resolve Venezuela’s crisis.
The attitude of the military determines the development of the situation. According to reliable sources, Diosdado Cabello, who is considered to be Maduro’s right hand, has recently transferred his children to Shanghai, China. Other confidants of Maduro also reported that the immediate family members were sent out from Venezuela, and the number of Venezuelan soldiers who fled to Colombia had exceeded 320. At present, hundreds of senior officers are being held in prison, and their hungry families are marching in the streets. The military has become the focus of the two sides. Guaido has formed about 500,000 militiamen armed with firearms, which has a restrictive effect of foreign invasions or military coups.
【International Strategic Concern】
On the Venezuelan issue, on the 25th, the Lima Group held a meeting in Colombia. US Vice President Burns said at the meeting that he would not rule out the option of military intervention in Venezuela. Russia warned the United States not to use force. China warned the United States not to intervene in the crisis, and Maduro also decided to import the most advanced weapons from Russia to prepare for war. The domestic government and the opposition do not compromise each other. The US intervention and the attitude of China and Russia may turn Venezuela into the next Ukrainian or Syrian. In the event of a civil war, Central America will go into chaos.
【 Deep rooted reasons 】
The oil resources brought prosperity to Venezuela, but also sent her into turmoil. As early as in the era of Spain, Venezuela already developed and produced oil. Since then, this country has focused solely on this resources and has neglected the development of other industries. The fluctuations in oil prices are pulling string on the country of Venezuela, and the wealth from the oil are controlled in the hands of only a few. In addition, the former President Chavez was influenced by Che Guevara’s socialist Utopian idealism and continued to be drawn to the socialist state camp. The economic concept was to use the typical “nationalized oil distribution system”, which is greatly detrimental. The investment and interests of the international free market in Venezuela have disrupted the country’s industrialization, the manufacturing industry has been sluggish, and the number of unemployed has soared. A wide range of public distribution is destined to lose its vitality, corruption set in, no morality nor harsh punishment can put an end to it., confirmed the saying “ an idealist that has power is the most dangerous person in the world.” During his administration, he replaced assets by importing large number of daily necessities. The country’s operation relied on the relatively stable oil prices at that time. When the oil price plundered, it crashed the already weakened national strength, unable to escape the destruction.
Pray for Taiwan: Facing Another Waves of Homosexuality
【Event: The Coalition for the Happiness recently invited many legislators to support the The Coalition for the Happiness ‘s version of the bill, and asked the legislators to oppose the law of marriage; The Coalition for the Happiness will continue to oppose the action of the Executive Branch’s bill; calling for a 40 days national fasting prayers starting from March 1 .
The Taiwan government conducted a referendum on the legalization of same-sex marriage in November last year . As a result, 7.65 million voted for referendums against the legalization of same-sex marriage, and agreed for the government to establish a special law to protect the rights of homosexual couples. Currently, the draft of the Executive Yuan is released. Although the term “same sex marriage” is avoided in the bill, the content is for the same sex marriage, which violates the referendums. The Executive Branch did not propose a draft amendment to the marriage of a man and a woman, nor did it abolish the relevant laws and regulations on the education of primary and secondary schools, but introduced a same-sex marriage bill that violated the referendums. The Coalition for the Happiness of our Next Generation (Abbr. The Coalition for the Happiness) will continue to oppose the this Executive bill. Before the end of May, within the time period for the revision of the law, there will also be another 40 days of national fasting and prayer, starting February 28th.
The draft of “ Interpretation and Implementation of the law number 748” that was sent to the Legislative Yuan to be reviewed on February 21, is not the “same-sex living law” that the Coalition of Happiness expected. Rather than the next generation of happiness alliance Pastor Shaoen Kuo(Pastor of the House of Christ in Taipei) published the article “ a day of distress, rebuke and disgrace.” on the 21st, calling for the Taiwanese churches, which support the movement of “Love and Protect Family and Children” to pray together and to participate in the convocation of 228 and Forty days of Praying and Fasting that begins on March 1, calling on God to reign and rule the kingdom of men until we see the glory of God .
Approaching May 24, 2 years anniversary of the No. 748 “Sunrise Clause“. due to the referendum on the election in November last year (2018), the 3 referendums proposed by the Coalition of Happiness were passed. A group of citizens who care about the issue of family and children launched a thousand people march around the Executive Yuan prayer vigil at 7:00 pm of February 19, calling on the Executive Director Jenchang Su to honor the referendum results. The original 30-minute prayer vigil drew waves and waves of caring citizen participating. it couldn’t be stopped even after 9:30pm, there were still people swarming in to participate.
However, the Executive Yuan’s version is still not in line with the expectations of the Coalition of Happiness. Pastor Shaoen Kuo believes that the “common marriage law” cannot be contrary to the will of God. Facing such difficulties, the churches in Taiwan should come together and pray until the glory of the Lord is manifested. Pastor Kuo prayed to God and said, “What we can’t do with our hands, we can do with our prayers, nothing is too difficult for God. God, may You call Your churches, to fulfill Your will in 2019, show Your glory in Taiwan, May Your blessing stay in Taiwan”. We declare: “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord (Prov . 16:33), ” In the Lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him. (Prov 21:1)
The following is the full text of “A day of Distress, rebuke, and disgrace…”
How should we respond?
The version of the “Special Law” of the Executive Yuan has been released! The definition of marriage and family is ambiguous, and the implementation of regulations is dodging the point! Many brothers and sisters are confused, disappointed, angry, and bewildered… At this moment, how should we respond?
When I got up in the morning, the Father put the experience of Hezekiah in my heart! “ This is a day of distress, and of rebuke, disgrace ……” (I king 19:1-4) , when the country encountered great difficulties, the enemy attacked, humiliated, people fell into deep distress! Isn’t Judah undergoing a spiritual revival? Isn’t God with them, and blessed them? How did it end up this way? (2 Chronicles 29-32 / II King 18-19)
How could this be? What are we to do ?
In King Hezekiah, the Bible reveals a “way out” at this moment! Before people: silent! (2 Kings 18:36); before God: Cry out! (2 Kings 19:1 ) When the Assyrian army coming toward the city with arrogance and fierce, it is easy to imagine that the whole country was in chaos… a lot of hustle and bustle. Hezekiah told everyone: be silent, go to the Lord and tell Him! Let the voice of the people quiet down, so the work of God can be revealed! Although we can do nothing, our Lord is full of power! So, we saw: never in the history of mankind, God personally intervened and took over – overnight, the angesl of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousands in the Assyrian camp! ( 2 Chronicles 21 / II King 19: 35 ) At the greatest danger, we can experience the greatest glory of God!
Difficulties, cause our souls to wake up!
Isn’t the experience Taiwan went through, along the way similar? – difficulties, has awaken our souls !
- In December 2016, 130,000 people march onto the street Kaida and stood for the truth! However,
- In May 2017, the Chief Justice’s interpretation of the Constitution made people extremely disappointed! At a critical moment, silent, not be discouraged, continue to cry out to God! Suddenly,
- In December 2017, the amendment to the “referendum law” was passed, and there was a break of dawn! Then,
- In the 2018 referendum process, a task that was so impossible that almost no one was optimistic, facing many doubts, ridicules, attacks, distortion… We chose to be silent, not discouraged! Continue to put our hands to work- going all out, do our parts, with weapons in one hand – earnestly appealing to heaven, crying out for God to show His power!
- On November 24, 2018, we saw God’s mighty glory: He reign and make the impossible, possible. He gathered and made the Taiwanese church body shifted, to become the Lord’s army, and possessed the land for the Lord, Hallelujah!
2019 is the year of war, and the year of victory!
The work of God is always: at first, it seems impossible, then, it is too hard, and finally: God did it! From “Impossible, too difficult, to God did it”, is all the work of God, God’s glory, and all we could do is: at each time of hardships, silent, and look to God, not affected by the environment, not discouraged! Continue to do our part and do what needs to be done! Continue to cry out to God and for Him to manifest His might! Then, we continue to experience God! 2019 is the year of glory, we will experience His greater glory! However, without battle, there is no victory, no victory, no glory? Therefore, 2019 is the year of war, the year of victory! At this moment, there are still many brothers and sisters, applying the wisdom, resources, and influence that God has given them! May they not be discouraged and continue: lobbying, mobilizing, fighting, doing what needed to be done! For the rest of us, be silent, keep them in our prayers! Let Joshua know that when they are out fighting hard in the valley, many families are praying fervently on the mountain, co-laboring with them in the battle! They are not alone! Now is only the beginning of 2019. Persist in the war! We believe Taiwan is chosen by God . We will live out the glory of God in the end time generation–so the world can see that the Lord is truly reigning in the kingdom of men! 2019 is the year of glory, God is moving!
Pray for Australian First Peoples (II)
Concerned about the poverty of Australian aborigines
There are currently about 700,000 Aboriginal people in Australia, accounting for 3% of the local population, and there are more people in Queensland than in other provinces. As early as 1976, the Aboriginal people, through the assistance of lawyers, received the government’s recognition of the ownership of their tribal territories and the recovery of part of the land. Most of the Aboriginal people currently live in urban areas and towns. With the education and assistance provided by the government, some people have successfully integrated. However, there are still a large number of Aboriginal people isolated from the outside world to maintain poverty and backward life. Some of them still have to set up stalls in tourist attractions, painted colorful patterns and spots on their bodies, playing their own musical instruments for tips. There are still many people living in wild areas far from the city and white people who are not willing to come close. A recent report shows that Aboriginal people must face the risk of losing their national culture if they want to be as successful as whites in Australia.
Wes Morris is the head of the local organization concerned about the life of the aborigines. He believes that the root of the problem is not only from the mental health of the aborigines. The primary factor is culture. “We cannot change the Australian society for 200 years. But may be in the next 50 years, we can make a change.”
Although the Australian government has amended the unfair policy, the racism in the hearts of the Australian people still need to be removed.
In the past few decades, the Australian government has been revising its many unfair policies against Aboriginal people due to the tenacious resistance of Aboriginal people and various pressures at home and abroad. In 1972, the “White Australia Policy” was abolished. “Aboriginal Embassy Also included in the National Heritage Registry in 1995 as a relic of the aboriginal political struggle. However, all of these are difficult to change the living conditions of the aborigines that have been forced to form for a long time . All kinds of misunderstandings and prejudices have brought distance between the aborigines and the Australians. They still have not been able to integrate into the modern society. Some people even describe Australia as “Nation of two people.” Recently, the “Australian newspaper” ridiculed the aboriginal with comic pictures of son committing crime, the father is drunken, this triggered the anger of the local aborigines. According to a survey, some aboriginal juvenile offenders were stripped of their clothes and beaten, and with tear gas. The alleged abuse of prisoners by prison guards and various public events have ignited the racist fire and have once again brought attention to the aboriginal issue that has existed in Australia for many years.
Unable to face discrimination and estrangement, suicide tendency is serous among aboriginal
Although some Aboriginal people continue to stay in their own land, many younger generations choose to escape by suicide. In recent years, suicides have occurred in various Aboriginal communities. Investigators attempt to prevent suicide have described the situation as “catastrophic.” According to official figures, nearly 5.2% of Aboriginal people are suicide deaths. However, the estimated number may reach 10%, that is, one out of every 10 people died of suicide, many of them young people . In March of this year, a young girl of only 10-year-old committed suicide, reflecting the seriousness of these incidents.
Unemployment among Aboriginal younger generation, economic collapses
The unemployment rate of young aborigines continues to rise, as high as 23% of young people aged 20 to 24, more than double the number of non-indigenous people. Many Australians will label the aborigines as troublesome and not motivated for anything, and most people try to avoid them. Young people simply can’t see hope for the future, with no identity in the community. They are abandoned by the mainstream and feel that they will not amount to anything. Many of them choose to numb themselves with alcohol and drugs. The probability of young people imprisoned is much higher than that of other ethnic groups, accounts for one third of the country’s crime population. In the past 10 years, the crime rate of Aboriginal people has increased by 52%.
Some Australians are concerned with the life of the Aboriginal. They believe the government did not give them enough support. They launched a joint operation this month, with more than 20,000 signatures, to set up an independent committee to deal with related issues.
Missionary “discipleship training” ministry is not effective
The missionary considered their 40 years of missionary work as failure. However, Aboriginal people seem to have a much higher understanding and belief in the gospel than non-indigenous Australians. Although the church attendance rate in both groups was less than 6%. The gospel message of Jesus’ salvation of grace is generally better than that of the “white” British-Australian. However the discipleship training is not effective.
Aboriginal communities are managed by the government
In Australia, the church always relies on the government to pay for its ministry to indigenous peoples. In 1977, an atheist socialist prime minister, Gough Whitlam, announced that the Aboriginal community would no longer be managed by Christian missionaries and would be replaced by a suitable government. The statistical gap between the living standards/social and health indicators of indigenous and non-indigenous populations has generally deteriorated. In fact, the missionaries were kicked out from the main indigenous areas of Australia. Just as the Communists expelled Chinese missionaries. God can work everything together ( Romans 8:28a) , enabled Aboriginal Christians to take care of themselves and become leaders. But responsibility also comes to many people who do not have enough Bible foundations. They inherit the ineffective and unbiblical mode of ministry in aboriginal environment. As a result, many indigenous ministers led the small church without supervision, until they died, and finally shut down. Many have received various ceremonies and rituals from their “parental” sects, but they have not been able to effectively “make disciples” because they have not received proper training.
Believers lack a sense of responsibility for the church
Aboriginal communities have barely established churches since the withdrawal of government-funded missionaries. In fact, there are more pastors died of old ages than pastors being trained, more church closed than open new ones. Since the government provided funds to the church in the past, believers never felt that they were responsible to the church. Also, Australian Aboriginal countries have the lowest socio-economic education system in the country, and half of Australian Aboriginal people live in remote communities and towns with little or no full-time employment. Only a few successful businesses and professionals, the average income average very low, very relied on “welfare” Therefore, the church often wants to find financial support from mainstream churches or wealthy businessmen, and even government subsidies.
The prospect of “House Church” is good
In the remote northern community, a new “house church” is developing naturally. Because they are not bound by the European tradition, to forbid them to truly express their love for God, so it is developed well. These groups are growing and duplicating and effectively raise fund themselves, and willing to walk with each other. Please pray for the Aboriginal Church of Australia. To train missionaries and Aboriginal apostolic ministers and get the resources they need to get the job done…Build a healthy Aboriginal church that can take part in the “Great Commission” (Matthew 28:19, 20) and along with the Brothers and sisters in Christ, to go to the land God send them to.
