Thanks and praise God, who enable us to pray together on the global firewalls for the city. Since March, we have seen that the Scepter of God being extended from Zion to the nations, especially the United States. The following are the events of victory and turnaround that occurred this month;
- 3/19: Trump’s historic victory – the Supreme Court overturned the 9th Circuit’s ruling, allowing the US government to detain or deport illegal immigrants more easily: the California Liberal Ninth District Circuit Court does its best to protect repeat offenders of illegal border crossings. They deliberately protect these people from the immigration laws of the country and even openly resist the executive orders of President Trump. However, the Supreme Court ended all of this on March 19, giving Trump a long-awaited victory. The Supreme Court has just overturned the decision of the 9th Circuit Court, making it easier to detain illegal immigrants on the border, especially when they re-enter the border again.
- 3/22: Purim Miracles: The White House announced on 3/22 :
- The ISIS Evil Regime was Annihilated : the ISIS evil regime was completely wiped out, and Iraq was liberated and regained its freedom. (The Harman regime was annihilated.)
- The Golan Heights is under the sovereignty of Israel: the United States fully recognizes Israel’s right to control the Golan Heights, and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said that God performed a Purim miracle by President Trump! (The regime returns to Mordecai)
- At the end of the Muller investigation, President Trump was completely acquitted : Special Adviser Robert Muller presented the long-awaited report to the Attorney General Bill Barr, who investigated the collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign. The two-year Muller investigation ended! President Trump is completely innocent.
God is gathering the wave of the Holy Spirit in acceleration to start a mighty movement. Now is the time when all the Lord’s army enters the advanced quick march. God is assembling different military services from various fields to encircle the enemy. The battle is fierce, but the waves are bigger. Glory will continue to sweep across the land, God is calling God’s children to respond quickly, jumping on the glory train, watch and take part in this glory power and transforming wave. Let’s stand up, be connect, run, soar, and shout for victory in unity! The Lord reigns forever and ever! Amen!

Censorship and Control
【Updates: Event: Recent publications and Internets fueled debate about the secrecy of government information and the people’s right to know.
- Proverbs 12:13-14 ‘The wicked are trapped by their own words, but the Godly escape such trouble. Wise words bring many benefits, and hard work brings rewards.’
- Psalm 5:9 ‘My enemies cannot speak a truthful word. Their deepest desire is to destroy others. Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled with flattery.’
- Romans 1:18 ‘But God shows His anger from Heaven against all sinful, wicked prople who suppress the truth byt heir wickedness.’
- Luke 19:39-40 ‘But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!” He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”’
In US, publishers have a fundamental right to print truthful political information. Equally important, Internet users have a fundamental right to read, and distribute that information and voice their opinions about it. Throughout the world, these values are codified into the laws of many countries under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
‘Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information ideas through any media and regardless of their platforms.’
However, we’re already seeing Governments around the world proposing laws that would severely limit the right to free expression. In US, lawmakers have rashly proposed a law that would threaten many News Agencies. Sadly, we will soon see similar efforts in more countries in the coming weeks and months.
In US, the strong protections for freedom of speech and expression against federal, state and local government Censorship are rooted in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. These protections and censorship extended to the Internet. Currently, the Internet is highly regulated, supported by legally binding and private sources (websites). National security have spurred efforts to expand surveillance of digital communications and fueled proposals for making internet communication more traceable.(Psa 5:9)
With a few exceptions, the free speech provisions of the First Amendment bars federal, state, and local governments from directly censoring the Internet, except for obscenity, and related to child pornography.
Individual Websites Censorship
Some websites (i.e. Tweeters, YouTube, Facebook, Goodle, etc.,) allow user-contributed content, are practicing self-censorship by adopting policies (aligned with government) on how their web sites may be used, and by banning and/or requiring pre-approval of editorial contributions from users that do not follow the site policies. For example, social media websites may restrict hate speech to a larger degree than is required under US harassment and verbal abuse Law. It’s believed these websites are monitoring for the government. They will exercise their self-censorship policy to shut down (political sensitive) users.
Religious and Conservatives Censorship (Luke 19:39-40)
NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) an organization that represents America Christian TV and Radio broadcasters, and ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice), a conservative Christian pro-life group, concluded that active censoring is on religious content with Christian perspectives, i.e. anti-homosexual, biblical truth and viewpoints are censored as ‘Hate Speech’.
Censorship and Protocol
Censorships expand rapidly through the bias political and security control, yet newest mode of censorship is making way to the next level of Internet Governance infrastructure. Only optimistic vigilance and continuing efforts can terminate the oppression.
Many outstanding websites Users have been forced out of their true journalistic reporting, from making a career of free-media service benefiting the general public with important truth that general citizens needed to be informed and discerned. (Prov. 12:13-14)】
Russian Collusion Fantasy Ended – What’s Next?
【Event: Russian Collusion fantasy initially ended on 3/22/2019 for Democrats Party. It is after 22 months, spending a hefty $25 million, of no collusion with President Trump and Russia. A delusional dream built on shifty sand finally ended.
- Jeremiah 9:3’My people bend their tongues like bows to shoot out lies. They refuse to stand up for the truth. They only go from bad to worse. They do not know Me.’
- Isaiah 54:17a ‘But in the coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you.’
- 2 Peter 3:10 ‘But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.’
- Psalm 34:’Calamity will surely destroy the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be punished. But the Lord will redeem those who serve Him. No one who take refuge in Him will be condemned.’
Moreover, the Democrats and mainstream media are willing to endure existential chaos if that’s the price for President Trump’s removal. It was an absolute disaster for the Democrats, non-Trump supporters, Media and Hollywood who had wished for long-expected impeachment. Nevertheless, under the darkest, most reckless, bias falsehood, MSM’s (mainstream media) where bias will likely continue packaged as journalism (Jere. 9:30)
Patriots are celebrating the President’s vindication after witnessing countless personal and political hostilities for a sitting president. (Psa 34:21-22)
While the collusion investigation is now ending, Democrats and Media are moving on yet another relentless crusade to ruin the presidency: running alongside with the Federal Prosecutors of Southern District, Attorney General (Dem.) of New York, in hope for full investigation on all of Trump’s past real estates businesses. (Isa. 54:17)
Presidential 2020 Election Campaign is heading the trails. Democrats are ramping up all resources trying to bring down President Trump. From redesigning and increasing Democratic voting districts, voting ages, illegal immigrant votes, non-citizen votes, Electoral College deletion, cancelling Trump’s Polls, and more. (2 Pe. 3:10)】
Keep the Land of Israel Safe Before and After the Election
【Current events: PRAYER ALERT: There was a rocket attack on 3/25 from the Gaza Strip that landed in a village north of Tel Aviv. That means the missile FLEW OVER Tel Aviv, as well as the surrounding cities of Herzliya, Raanana, and Kfar Saba. Shelters in Tel Aviv and the surrounding cities have been opened.
Less than two weeks before the Israeli election, it is unclear how much Israel will respond. But it is clear that Hamas is working hard to escalate the situation.
On the same day, the US President Trump officially recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in Washington on Sunday (3/24) and was expected to conduct a four-day visit. But because of this attack, he flew back to Israel immediately after meeting with President Trump at the White House on 3/25. When meeting with Netanyahu, Trump signed a proclamation officially recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Before and after the Israeli election on April 9, the international and Israeli political situation is sensitive. Please pray for God’s protection over the land and people of Israel.】 (Source: ICEJ Chinese Affairs Department 2019.3.25 / Kehila News)
Israel Made Prostitution Illegal: Righteous Government / God’s Holy People
【Current event: A Prohibition of Consumption of Prostitution Services Bill was passed earlier this year in the Israeli Knesset making prostitution illegal by a vote of 34-0. This sweet fruit was the result of 10 years’ effort, making Israel the tenth country in the world to make prostitution illegal.
MK (member of the Knesset) Shuli Mualen for the Jewish Home said. “The State of Israel made today a moral and historic decision in which we condemn prostitution and act to rehabilitate women, men and teenagers who have found themselves in the cycle of this industry of cruel exploitation.” MK Aliza Lavie said the law will lead to a “dramatic change” and called its passage an “exciting, moral and defining moment which defines the State of Israel as a society – who we are and what our values are.”
The law punishes the client who purchases sex, and not the prostitute. Under the terms of the bill, the offending prostitution client will be fined. Courts will be empowered to raise the fines on repeat offenders up to a maximum of NIS 75,300 (approx. $20,600).
The new law will go into effect a year-and-a-half after it was passed in order to give law enforcement agencies ample time to prepare for its implementation. 】(Source: Israel Today 2/13/2019; Kingdom Revival Times 2/18/2019 )
Pray for the three African countries, including Mozambique flooded by Cyclone Idai
【Current events : Tropical cyclone Idai attacked southern Africa in mid-March, bringing heavy rains, floods and landslides, causing more than 2.5 million people in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe to be affected, until March 21 More than 1,100 people are known to be killed, most of whom are in Mozambique. 】
【Background: People in Africa have suffered from poverty, backwardness, drought, disease, and war for many years. Hunger and AIDS have become the biggest killers of Africans, and the latter has long been more harmful than the former. The three African countries affected by the disaster, Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe, have the following commonalities. We need to urgently call for God’s mercy and intervention.
- Poverty, Hunger: On February 13, 2019, according to a joint report by UN agencies, the number of people in the African region who continued to be undernourished was higher than in any other region. Evidence shows that in 2017, 20% of the African population was undernourished. The reasons are global economic hardship and deteriorating environmental conditions, and in many countries are also attributed to conflicts and climate variability and extreme weather. In southern and eastern Africa, many countries suffer from drought. The result is child hunger and malnutrition.
- War, Slaughter, Rape: In some countries, there are tribal conflicts, anti-government armed forces and government military civil war conflicts, people are slaughtered, and women are raped. In the civil war conflict, women are often the victims and even became the subjects for the opponents to vent their frustrations, which also leads to the expansion of AIDS.
- AIDS is raging:
- In the Republic of Malawi, although the proportion of Christians in the Malawi is as high as 60% and in some areas even exceeds 80%, the Malawi people still maintain traditional culture – polygamy, and even in the church, the proportion of premarital sex is also very high, which causes AIDS to devastating the people of Malaysia. The AIDS infection rate: 14.2%, per capita GDP is only 250 US dollars, the economy has not increased for more than 20 years, but the prevalence rate has soared, and 500,000 people have died of AIDS. Most people infected with Malawi are children. In 2014, there were as many as 130,000 children under the age of 14, but only half of them were treated.
- Mozambique (Republic of Mozambique), HIV infection rates: 12.2%, they do not understand nor pay attention to AIDS, many people think that magic can heal this disease. There is a lack of national safety awareness, and many people continue to have sexual relationship with those they know that are infected with AIDS.
- Zimbabwe (Republic of Zimbabwe), the AIDS infection rate: 24.6%. The country’s AIDS population was the highest a few decades ago and is now down to 25 percent. This country is also one of the poorer countries in Africa. 】
Revive Europe for 40 weeks of Prayers – Pray for the Revival of France
【Background : Population: 65.7M, freedom, equality, friendliness, are values cherished by the French, but no longer reflected in new laws and society. Muslims are growing rapidly, and France is a hedonistic, spiritual desert. The marriage system of young people collapses, advocates cohabitation,not consider giving birth as important, but Islam multiply greatly in their child birth, The rate of Islam is growing at an unprecedented rate.
In Paris, France, many places suffered terrorist attacks associated with ISIS. The surge in anti-Semitism in France is in great need of attention. Although France is located in the geographical, political and social center of Western Europe, but according to the WIN/Gallup International Poll, the French Christian population accounts for only 1% of European Christians and is the fourth most global atheist population, only Less than China, Japan and the Czech Republic. After the formal adoption of the same-sex marriage law in France in 2013, the people held two large-scale demonstrations of anti-homosexual marriage and anti-surrogate in February and October 2014 with between 50,000 and 80,000 people. We pray that France can restore back to a place that magnify the value of Christian family, constitution, and working environment.
The French yellow vest movement was a French protest movement that began on November 17, 2018. The protest movement spread to Europe and even to many countries and regions around the world. At first it was a peaceful demonstration by the people because they were dissatisfied with the government’s policies. Later, violent right-wing and ultra-left groups infiltrated into the riots, causing serious conflict with the riot police. They attacked security forces and challenged national authorities. Although French President Emmanuel Macron has stopped the oil fuel tax of the people, it is unable to stop the dissatisfaction of the people. Since the 12/1 last year, there have been yellow vest demonstrations every week. The French government has mobilized more than 80,000 police officers throughout the country to protect against riots. The 9th event (1/12th) has recently spread from the big cities of Paris to central France. French President Emmanuel Macron is preparing a series of three-month debates to try to appease the public’s anger and dissatisfaction. 】

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 .
In November last year, the Taiwan government conducted a referendum on the legalization of same-sex marriage. As a result, 7.65 million referendums opposed the legalization of same-sex marriage and agreed to set up a special law to protect the rights of homosexual couples. At present, the draft of the Executive Branch is released. Although the name of same sex marriage is removed from the bill, but the content is subject to civil law marriage provisions, which violates the referendum. After the referendum, the Executive Branch did not propose a draft amendment to the marriage is of one man and one 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 referendum. The Happiness Alliance will continue to oppose the actions of the Executive Branch bill. Before the end of May, it will be the period of revision of the law. On February 28th, there will also be a 40 days national fasting and prayer.
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 the continued interaction between Native Americans and First Nation in Taiwan

Pastor Anli of the Shanguang Church shared his experience of making covenant with the Han Chinese pastor in Jerusalem in 2004. He pointed out that when their churches became one, God gave them great authority. First Nation and Han’s Walking together is the key that brought about the great impact of the kingdom of God and many spiritual breakthroughs.
It is a miracle for the Caucasian, the Chinese and First Nations from North America to be connected, to fulfill His heart for the nations, and to turn the nation around. As Pastor David Demain once said, the connection and unity among the Chinese will prepare the platform for the world, and what God wants to do exceeds what we wish or ask. Before Jesus coming back, this unity will bring about a global revival of the church. Not only will the church be connected, so will the nations and the next generations be connected.
When the tribes of First Nation stand in their positions, the restoration of all things will come
Pastor David Peng of North America quoted Acts 3:20-21 when “everything is restored”, the Lord Jesus Christ will come again. This is the mystery of God’s intention for “the revival of all things”. Through the prophet Elijah, He come to “turn the heart of the father to the children, and the heart of the children to the father” ( Mal. 4: 5-6 ). Therefore, God will first bring Israel, the eldest son, home and all nations must help Israel to restore their status as the eldest son.
In addition, the key to the restoration of all things lies in the First Nations. God established the First Nation in all parts of the world as the gatekeepers of the land. When the global First Nation around the world stand in their positions, they will bring about the restoration of all things. In particular, First Nation and Han’s walking together in Taiwan, brothers confessed and repented and love each other, The First Nation in Taiwan must become the tipping point for the restoration of all things. When the North American Homecoming team went to the All People Church in Taipei on the 23rd, God revealed to them, “Taiwan will hold The Global First Nation Homecoming Gathering and become the “tipping point” for the church revival.
Sharing from Pastor Peng from North American on the visit to Taiwan and Kyoto, Japan:
Let’s start from the “9th Street”. People in Taipei all knows that when you mention 9th Street, it is a place for the Japanese to drink and having fun during the time of Japanese occupation. Unfortunately, many oppressed vulnerable groups including first nations, sold their daughters to this red light district, lived in a dark and horrible life. Pastor Yan Jinlong was the “Hotel” pastor called by God to minister to this group of First Nation peoples in this area. Most of his congregation are First Nation people who came down from the mountain to work in this district.
Two years ago, when Joe Donnell, the first nation people from South Dakota, and I visited Taiwan for the first time, God reminded me of the story of this pastor that I heard from some Christian channel, we went to meet this legendary “Hotel Pastor” and his ministry without introduction. At that time, Pastor Yan shared with me the struggles and breakthroughs of caring for First Nation workers in the past 20 years. In the tiny area of the 9th street I saw the lonely first nation people who found a safe home to renew their strength and restart their lives.
Interestingly, about two years later, the very place we meet for “the First Nation and Han walking together” is the worship center of Pastor Yan, but this time, it is not only me and Joe Donnell that came, but there were five other First Nations, a white , a black pastor and more than a dozen Chinese. What is so remarkable is the church they have pastored for 20 years have just been remodeled recently. The moment I walked in, God pointed out to me: today is a milestone. Indeed, God’s work is really beyond what we can ask and think of. In just three hours, God revealed His deep heart to us at this gathering.
Now, in retrospect, it was like a dream. Just as described in Psalm 126, God has done great things among us! There were a lot of pastoral family attending the meeting that day;to make the long story short, here are some of the turning points that I was greatly impressed:
- Ed Watts, a white pastor from Michigan, shared after worship and praise. He had once visited Azusa Street in Los Angeles, the birthplace of the Pentecostal movement. Today, he seems to once again feel the strong pouring of the Holy Spirit. He could even taste of revival filling the place, suddenly Ed Watts was filled with the Holy Spirit, and declared that “Taiwan will become the womb of the nations, and the global gathering of First Nation will be held in Taiwan.” The black pastor Delzora Terrell from Pennsylvania responded by releasing the sound and travailing from the depths of the spirit, with the excitement of the mother giving birth to the baby, our spirits were all stirred up, at that time, the pastor Yuan of New York and the shimo Wu of the Rona Church both were under great shaking in the spirit, and it was the scene of a pregnant woman giving birth; Pastor John Li sensed Isaiah 66, “Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.” Isaiah 66:7-8 It all came so fast and so intense but yet so beautiful. Everyone in the room felt the urgency of God’s heart, because he is anxious to fulfill this beautiful thing, thank the Lord, because the Lord has truly done a great and wonderful thing among us.
- In fact, at that time, all of us were very satisfied with the marvelous work of God, not knowing God had two other big surprises! One of them was that day was exactly the 66th birthday Shimo Wu of Ronah’s church, and I believe God is confirming to us through the years of faithfulness of Rona Church in Nantou County in the middle of Taiwan. That this is really from the Lord, and the Lord has also confirmed to us that “the country can really be born in a day, and without labor pain.” We have heard and seen it with our own eyes, so the Lord really wants to use Taiwan to gather the First Nation of the world, and to fulfill what God wants to accomplish before He return.
- Secondly, it is God’s special and wonderful grace. The five Native Americans, walked together for two weeks. We can all see that God really has given them special revelations. They are also very keen on the leading of the Holy Spirit. As we are discerning, God has use them to give us clear confirmation, Even when we were not sure what the focus was, God revealed to them personally, which gave us more confident that everything was from God. The most obvious example is when Joe Donnell came to the Homecoming in Kyoto, God told us the key point through him, that Japan had established a covenant with their local first nation for nearly a hundred years to worship the sun god. It made us realize that Asia has such a deep connection with Native Americans. Thanks to the Lord, This is the first time the Native Americans, blacks and whites from the United States to come to Taiwan. From the first day, they were very surprised and appreciate for the atmosphere and many things in Taiwan. I told them at that time: “This is just day one!” This is indeed the case, This is only the first one, I deeply believe that God will use the First Nation of Taiwan, from the All People Worship Center from the 9 lanes by the First Nation, to gather all people here, and to draw all nations to respond to the call of the Lord in the last days. Amen!
