Pursuing Intimacy With God: My Heart Meditates

 

  • Psalm 77:6 “…My heart meditated and my spirit asked.”
  • 2 Timothy 2:19, 21 ““Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” Those who cleanse themselves from the latter (common vessels) will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.”

Dear Abba Father, We thank You and praise You for this moment. Sustain us with Your strength as we spend time with You in the secret place. The psalmist in Psalm 77: 6 meditated with his heart and found You grace; Father, we also want to search our hearts carefully and diligently while basking in the presence of Your light. Father, shed Your light on me so that any sin in the depth of my heart may be revealed. Reveal to me when I have refused to repent, have been self-justifying or even been oblivious to my sins. Father, I am willing to humble myself and bow my head in the dust and ask You to help me see all the hidden faults in my thoughts, motivations, emotions, responses and desires. In the light of Your revelation, let all my hidden sins be exposed, such as pride, rebellion, unbelief, jealousy, selfishness, ambition and greed. Abba Father, I long to be close to You, closer and closer, to hear Your heartbeat. We don’t want to stay in our current state for You love us and desire us to be vessels of honor. Help us repent often and die to self; remove impurities from inside of us and let no barriers come between us so that we can have deeper fellowship with You. May the light on Your face release forgiveness and mercy, giving us new life. Your grace is like the spring rain, making us truly feel the joy of the Father

奉主耶穌基督的名,阿們!

In the name of Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen!

Revival Testimony:The Three Great Revivals in America 

In the history of the church in the eighteenth century, it can be regarded as a turbulent wind; first, German godliness movement aroused, followed by the British Methodist movement, which in turn produced the American Great Awakening Movement. The Great Awakening is regarded as the religious revival of the United States. It had a great influence on American ideology, concepts, and all levels of social life and has also established the American religious culture. Different scholars have different orientations for the definition of this historical period, but they can be roughly divided into three major awakenings. It evoked the people’s deeper experience of the Christian faith, the rapid development of the church, the increasing number of people, and the movement of many sermons and universal missions. … detailed reading

Nation / Global Critical Event: Pray for Colombia – Light in the Darkness

  • Colossians 1:19-20 ‘It was the Father’s good pleasure for all fullness to dwell in Jesus, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the Blood of His Cross.’

Background :Colombia is the fourth largest nation in South America, and the only one with coastlines on both the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean, is also one of the largest exporters of illegal drugs and cartels.

Since 1964, Guerilla groups (rebels, Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) FARC had been terrorizing the country, government was out of control. The Colombian armed conflict began in 1964, in 50 years over 173,000 murders, and over 77,000 cases of forced displacement. U.N. declared FARC had committed human right violations against civilians, including extrajudicial executions, kidnappings, forced displacement and land thefts. One of the leaders, Jesus Santrich was awaiting extradition to the U.S. over alleged drug trafficking. 

Finally, in November 2016, after 5-year long peace negotiation between Colombia government and FARC, an agreement was eventually reached, ending the 50 years of internal violence. (Col. 1:19-20)

The Light Shines

Many indigenous Christians and missionaries are spreading the Gospel through radio evangelism and discipleship. Through various venues, it’s believed over 100,000 guerilla members have turned to follow Jesus. Still other tribes hiding in dark ages, and others living in the conflict zones. May the Light spread quickly over the land.】

Pray For USA: Red Flag Gun Law –  Anything Is Possible !

  • 1 Peter 5:6-7 ‘Humble yourselves, then, under God’s mighty hand, so that He will lift you up in His own good time. Leave all your worries with Him, because He case for you.
  • Isaiah 35:4 ‘Tell everyone who is discouraged, be strong and don’t be afaid! God is coming to your rescue.’
  • Matthew 10:28 ‘Do not fear those kill the body but are unable to kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.’
  • James 4:8 ‘Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded.’
  • Hosea 4:6 ‘My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge because you have neglected Knowledge. I also will reject you for being my priest since you have forgotten he law of your God. I also will forget you.’

【Current Event :‘Red Flag Gun Law’ is coming for Senate’s voting.

Emotional-based policy/laws designed with unwanted consequences, fear-based manipulators conceal stealthily real objectives. (Isa. 35:4)

In an emotion state, citizens are easily hoodwinked into giving away freedom and giving the government expanded powers. We implemented ‘Homeland Security Act’ and ‘Intelligence Reform’ after 9/11 (2001). We are still paying the cost for civil captivity today, we handed the government more power to spy and control, not solely on suspected terrorists, as well as on American citizens without a warrant. (1 Pe. 5:6-7)

In 1920 to 1980 (span of 60 years), there were 205 people died in public shootings in America where owning guns was common. From 1980 to this date (in 30+ years), more than 1,400 people have died, a 700% escalation. President Trump condemned the latest shootings as ‘the act of evil.’ (Mt. 10:28)

Another emotional-fear-based policy/law is waiting at the Senate floor after the El Paso and Dayton shootings (James 4:8). Voting soon begins on ‘Red Flag Gun Law’,  that will apply to ‘Complaints’ initially made by someone thought ‘something a person might do’, this is a lower standard than the ‘reasonable suspicion standard’ we allowed police to use. Simply put, ‘Red Flag Gun Law’ will be a ‘anything is possible’ charge based on vague complaints filed by any citizens. This extends beyond gun confiscations.

Taking away guns or increasing ‘gun control’ cannot solve mass shootings because anyone can find ways to get guns and sophisticated weapons illegally. Its cause is man’s flaws and the lack of God’s virtue (Hosea 4:6). America has a virtue problem since God was removed politically from the law, government, education, businesses, courtrooms, families, economy and culture, whereas mentioning God, the Bible and praying are offensive and violate (falsely accused) the first Commandment. Evil is unceasingly advancing government fear-based policies.

Pray for Israel: Clashes Broke Out on Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av (the Day of Mourning for the Destruction of Temples)

Current event: Clashes broke out between Muslim protesters and Israeli police forces on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount holy site on Sunday (8/11), during a period of peak religious tensions over the confluence of Jewish and Muslim holy days. At least 61 Muslim worshipers were injured in the clashes and at least four officers were also wounded. Sunday marks both the start of Eid al-Adha, an Islamic holiday and the Jewish fast day of Tisha B’Av, when Jews mourn the destruction of the temples that once stood on the Temple Mount and other disasters in Jewish history.

Muslims Began Rioting: Following a security assessment, police said non-Muslims would be barred from entering the Temple Mount, where tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers had arrived during the morning. Hundreds of Jews had gathered at the gates leading to the holy site on Sunday morning. After another security assessment, some Jewish visitors were allowed to enter the site. Several dozen visited under close police escort and Muslim worshipers began throwing chairs and other objects at the group. In response, police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and other less-lethal riot control weapons at the protesters. The Jewish visitors left the compound shortly thereafter.

Criticism from Within: Concerning the closure of the Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av, right-wing politicians blamed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the move, condemning it as “disgraceful” and calling on him to reverse the ban. A source in the Prime Minister’s Office denied Netanyahu ordered the closure, saying whether to allow entry to the Temple Mount is determined in accordance with police assessments of the situation.

Tradition and Rules of Entry: Israeli authorities traditionally close the Temple Mount to non-Muslims during Islamic holidays, to keep religious tensions from boiling over, but exceptions have been made when Jewish holidays coincide. In June, police allowed Jewish visitors onto the site on Jerusalem Day, which fell this year during the final days of Ramadan, sparking clashes between Muslims and police.

Under an arrangement in place since Israel’s victory in the 1967 Six Day war, non-Muslims are allowed to visit the Temple Mount but not to pray there. Jews in religious garb are allowed to enter in small groups during limited hours, but are taken through a predetermined route, are closely watched and are prohibited from praying or displaying any religious or national symbols. 】(SourceTimes of Israel, 8/11/2019

Pray for The First Nation: Native Americans – Don’t Lose The Diamonds

【Background: On July 22 this year, we prayed for the Aboriginal gathering in Manitoba, Canada (click here for more details ) . There were two Canadian Chinese intercessors attending the party. 

The following letter is from one of the intercessors, describing in the tone of a 4-year-old First Nation girl, Kingsley, about the real interactions on their way back to Winnipeg.  

A letter from Kingsley

Hello, everyone! My name is Kingsley. My grandmother lives in The Pas, a reservation in Manitoba province. She is a Cree Tribe; my mother is a half Cree, she will graduate as a professional lawyer in  one year, and she is determined to become a lawyer, especially as a voice for the First Nation people.Therefore, we often travel to and from The Pas and Winnipeg.

That day, I met two lovely Chinese aunts who wanted to ride back with us to Winnipeg. Because my mother needs to drive, my sister and I are very happy, because we have companies now, on the way home. I like to paint a lot, and I like them very much. So, I  wanted to give them a painting from the beginning. So, I asked one of the aunts to tear off a piece of paper from my mother’s notebook, and paint a picture for them, while they were resting. Along the way, we played games, ate popcorn; and also listened to the aunts, introduced their families to me, laughter and enjoyable conversation accompanied us…

Time really flew, and the joyful journey finally came to the time to say goodbye. I took out the picture I had already prepared and asked the aunt to open it. I don’t know if she likes my work, but I hope she can keep it well, so I said to her, please don’t throw away the painting, I hope you can keep it. In this painting, it is full of my love for them! I drew a heart in the upper left corner, and I said to her: I love you! I also want to know if she loves me? So I asked her: Do you love me? She replied, yes, I love you. I am so happy! I also want to know if her daughter Zoe loves me? So, I asked again: Does Zoe love me too? Auntie, said Zoe still doesn’t know me, and still don’t understand me. I hope that ZOE can love me too, so I asked Auntie to take a picture of me and introduce me to ZOE. I also hope to be a good friend with ZOE. I also wrote a lot of love languages, expressing how I like to dance with aunts, to watch TV and play; because I still can’t write, so I can only express using waves. in the lower part of the painting, there is a room with two photos hanging inside, which is me and aunty. There are two people, also me and aunty. The little one that has the braids on who was about to go out to play was me, and aunty was in the room. I hope that when I go out, she can wait for me at home, watch TV, play games, dance and wait until I come back.

I saw Auntie put the painting carefully into the carry-on bag. I hope she can keep it all the time. Finally, it is time to say goodbye, I look forward to seeing them again next time.

What I Received in the spirit:

After I came home, when I was quiet before the Lord, God revealed to me the scenes of the painting and the car ride. This is not just an Aboriginal little girl’s love for the two Chinese who ride in her car, but it is the love of the entire aboriginal group for the Chinese, the aboriginal has the desire to love, and a longing for the response to love.

The aborigines sent an invitation to the Chinese, “Do you love us?”, Do you really love us? Or do you love us because it is a ministry that God has given you? If you really love me? What about your family? Do they love us? I long to be known, accepted, and eager to receive their love.

The little girl who is about to go out in the painting, is like an aboriginal warrior, holding a  weapon of warfare. When they go out to fight, how they need us to watch for them at home and wait for their return. She used wavy lines to express their love. She said not throw away the painting, as the IHOP Pastor Mike Bickle said to a church in Winnipeg a few decades ago , “Don’t lose the diamond.” To this day, this church has minister to the aborigines for 30 years.

Yes, the aborigines are the most precious diamonds in the Kingdom of God. May the Chinese and the body of Christ around the world stand with them. 】

Revival Testimony:The Three Great Revivals in America

In the history of the church in the eighteenth century, it can be regarded as a turbulent wind; first, German godliness movement aroused, followed by the British Methodist movement, which in turn produced the American Great Awakening Movement. The Great Awakening is regarded as the religious revival of the United States. It had a great influence on American ideology, concepts, and all levels of social life and has also established the American religious culture. Different scholars have different orientations for the definition of this historical period, but they can be roughly divided into three major awakenings. It evoked the people’s deeper experience of the Christian faith, the rapid development of the church, the increasing number of people, and the movement of many sermons and universal missions.

The Great Awakening originated in the 17th century and the Puritans continued to flood into the American continent. Many new immigrants gradually settled here and established their homes. However, the descendants of some immigrants lost their ancestors’ ideals and under the influence of rationalism, they gradually became secularized by the influence of the current trend, which made the beliefs chaotic. Under such circumstances, the prelude to the Great Awakening Movement was unveiled. Here are our attempt to briefly describe some important people and the three movements:

The core person in the first great awakening (1726-1760) is Edwards . He greatly promoted and ignited the awakening movement to various places and different denominations. He was later helped by Wheat field and others to revitalize the East Coast of the United States and the fire of revival was later spread to the southern United States. This campaign is mainly to awaken the people the pursuit of faith and emphasized godly living. Later, it was suspended due to the American War of Independence.
The core person in “The Second Great Awakening” (1784-1830) is Charlie Finley. He renovated the way of evangelism and greatly promoted the training and equipping of believers. During this period, the entire East coast of the United States greatly promoted the revival of the campus, so that the number of churches continued to grow and organized many different camps, gatherings, etc., so that the fire of revival continued to burn, bringing the church to a great prosperity. Later, the tide was reduced because of the civil war between the North and the South of America
The core person of “The Third Great Awakening” (1875-1900) is Moody. He presided over many large-scale evangelistic conferences throughout the United States, leading many people to return to the Lord and established a number of seminaries. In addition, there have been many evangelists during this period, including: Tolle, Chapman, Sin End, etc…
The flame of this revival has made many people willing to commit themselves to the mission and started the universal missionary movement. Later on, The Great Awakening Movement not only affected the development of the church, but also brought about comprehensive innovation in the organization of the society and the people’s minds. Such as the abolition of slavery, the rise of the feminist movement, the reform of the city, the promotion of education, the construction of many social services, etc. In terms of thinking, many people should pay attention to the concept of equality and anti-authority. In faith, people were more awakened to pay attention to emotions and in the evangelistic message to emphasize the experience of the soul and to be saved. For the church, the promotion of the establishment of various denominations has added new content to the cultivation of Christianity and the Sunday school movement had also arisen at this time.

The special awakening of the United States is to transcend sectarianism and region, focusing on life change, godliness, advocating commitment, and devotion to mission. A series of exciting meetings have been unfolding throughout the Americas and many revivals and repentant evangelistic gatherings have encouraged more people to devote themselves to the mission, speeding up the universal missionary movement and spreading the gospel to Africa and Asia.

This awakening movement evokes many secularized believers’ lives, rekindles the fire of revival, and is willing to commit to evangelism and devote to missions to save the souls of thousands. Through ancient history, this history may give a great revelation to the believers in Hong Kong today. It is necessary to teach the greater promotion of the mission, the revival of the believer’s life, and dedication is the first consideration.
