Praise Report: Victory and Turnaround in March
Just as we sensed: God is shaking the United States and the nations in 2019, although He allows the liberals to have victory but it will be short-lived, to expose the force of darkness and remove the roots of evil completely. 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!

Pray For Church
Restore us to our first love, and honor God
【 Current situation : The advancement of science and technology and the Internet in the recent century has not enriched our lives and made our workload lighter or easier It has brought more pressures on life and more difficulties to family. We neglected to manage the family and we underestimated the influence of social changes on the surrounding environment, the enemy sneaked in when no-one is watching, changed the social culture, damaged our children, destroyed the family, caused so many divorces among couples; the family is weakened, the church becomes weaker, lethargic and indifferent, each generation becomes weaker than former generation. 】

Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
- Repentance for the secularization of the church : Lord, we departed from You and went on our own way we did not obey Your command. We not only follow our personal desires, but also adopted the values of the world, we do not have a positive impact on the society, do not care about the community, and are indifferent to the injustice and unrighteous things. Our behavior is no different from those who do not believe in the Lord. The church is becoming secular. We fear men,more than fearing God, compromise with evil forces. Lord, we bow before You, on behalf of the church, asking the Lord to forgive us, give us broken and contrite heart and the tears of repentance, and truly repent.
- Restore the church to her first love and honor the Lord : Please wash and cleanse us of all our sins and unrighteousness, with the precious blood of Jesus Christ restore our first love for You, and honor the Lord in all things, let us begin again at this critical moment, By the power of the Holy Spirit, cut off all chains, bind, dictate, and tear down the walls of the church.

【Updates: In the summer of 2018, President Trump stated: ‘Outside of war and peace, of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of Supreme Court Judge, if you get it (the chance)’ (Dan. 2:21)
In October 2018, Conservative Justice Kavanaugh, after a close and intense Senate debates, was finally sworn in to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy (known as swing-vote), a justice who increasingly sided with his more liberal colleagues on certain issues.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG)
In November 2018, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, a liberal Judge who has served for 25 years, declared serious health issues. Immediately underwent surgical procedures removing two cancerous growths from her lungs.
The nine-members high Court is currently divided 5-4 between its conservative (5) and liberal (4) wings. Ginsburg’s departure would allow President Trump to create the Court’s strongest conservative majority in decades. However, it will not without facing a more intense opposition from Democrats and liberal activists exceeding Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s. (Rom 12:12)
Justice Ginsburg is not seen returned to her duty since December. The functions of all 9 Justice are critical for cases brought to the US Supreme Court, each case will take precedence of the nation’s predicative direction. Chief Justice John Roberts, though a conservative but lately has joined the liberal political fray as ‘swing-vote’. He rejected to review the two abortion cases involved Planned Parenthood (from the lower court in Louisiana). US Supreme Court refused to do ‘its job’ to give a fair review against the ‘ideological reasons’. Planned Parenthood gained its ground because the Supreme Court would not review the case. This case is pivotal keeping Planned Parenthood from being funded by Medicaid.
Current Conservative Supreme Court Justices includes Justice Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito and Brett Kavangugh. Today, Justice John Roberts (formerly conservative) has demonstrated the Court is ‘neither conservation nor liberal, and that it’s the Political Branch of Government.’ Other observers see Robert is the bridge between divided ideologues (Democrats and Republicans) on the bench. US Supreme Court Justice should not rule at the political hinges. (Num. 15:23)
Supreme Court Appointments (with influence impacts the nation for 30- 50 years) are ‘Indefinite, a seat is considered vacant only if a Justice dies or retires from the Court. In the event a judge is unable to perform his or her duties, their only clear recourse is Congressional Impeachment.’
Democrats are very tight lipped about Justice Ginsburg’s health condition, Justice Robert’s has turned Court of Law to Bench of Politics, aim to protect the liberal political advantages.
A radical plan suggested by former Democrats Attorney General, Eric Holder, to increase two more seats for the Supreme Court, thus to silence conservative voices which has provoked like-minded members. (Amos 9:3)
US Supreme Court decisions cannot be coined with politics, or liberal politics, but should abide with the principle of foundational rules and wisdom. The foreseeable critical decisions will be needed for: ‘No Open Border Policy’, ‘Immigration Policy’, ‘Abolishing Electoral College’, ‘Two more seats for the Bench’, ‘creating new States for more Senate Seats’, ‘Voting Frauds’, ‘Anti-Semitism’, ‘Abortions issues’ (Roe v. Wade) and more. (Isa. 49:1)】

【Updates: Presidential Election 2020 – ‘New Democratic Socialism’ made entry. Every Election brings good or bad changes to the nation because candidates promised to give what the people wanted. Both Democrats and Republicans Parties fought to make promises. In 2016, President Trump (Republican) promised a ‘Returned’ government. He was elected on November 20, 2016. 2020 Democrats Campaign is filled with growing new breed of socialistic candidates. The Left-leaning campaign set towards Generation Z to Millennials.
The Future (Psa. 127:1)
A recent study showed the Generation X (born 1968-1986) & Z (born between 1997-2012), along with millennials (1986-1996) are more likely to choose socialistic policies and principles than past generations – resulted from America higher education system allowing the breeding of socialism. This has become a direct threat to the future of the country because Generation Z will surpass millennials in 2019 as the most populous generation, comprising roughly 32% of the population. The newest survey showed 50% of young people would support socialistic policies (Green New Deal).
For people who did not live through the Cold War (1941-1997) and the horrors of socialism, the notion that they can get free stuffs from the government is addictive (2 Thes. 3:10). Excluding military members, those having little sacrifice for their country, bought into the ‘idea’ that rich people and big corporations (capitalists) are evil because they have ‘stolen’ money from others, especially the poor.
In fact, socialism can never balance ‘HOW’ to support great ‘ideas’. ‘Ideas’ can become reality only with justifiable facts. The great idea of ‘Healthcare for all’ (a hefty $40 trillion price tag) is important to young people. But, their support of ‘paying more taxes; delays in treatments and medical tests, etc. are a turnoff. Meeting the ideas and their emotional needs seems far more important than observable results when the bubble will eventually burst.
Recent socialism downfall in Venezuela has little impact on younger Americans who think the US government is a large ATM and all they need to do is insert a card and money (services) will slide out. How ignorant people are about the effects socialism without educated in true economic. Our education today indoctrinates young people with socialistic principles, dependency and belief, subjectively, emerging with the global system. Ultimately, we have a system to belong to, not a nation.
Why Socialism failed? (Heb. 11:10)
New Democrats ‘left-leaning radicals’ party is misleading the nation. Socialism is a flawed system based on completely faulty principles that aren’t consistent with real economics. They are recycling history with false freedom, failed concepts to enslaving the new. Theirs are non-answer answers, their ideas need to be challenged and confronted. How $2 trillion can never offset a $40 trillions promise. (Prov. 13:4)】
Violence Flared On Jerusalem’s Temple Mount
【Current event: Following a gasoline bomb attack against an Israeli police station on the Mount Tuesday (3/12) afternoon, the Temple Mount was operating under heavy security Wednesday. Police closed access to the Old City through two gates adjacent to predominantly Arab neighborhoods, prompting demands by the Islamist terror militia Hamas and other extremist groups for Palestinians and their supporters to storm the gates and force their way through in a show of defiance.
United Nations Special Coordinator to the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov tweeted that “Places of worship are for prayer, not for provocations and violence. Restraint must be shown to avoid inflaming an already tense situation. The status quo must be fully respected by all.”
Additionally, recent days have seen a surge in violence along the border between Israel and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. 】（ICEJ News 3/13/2019）
【Background: The Temple Mount has been the center of the Arab-Israel conflict from the very beginning. Historically, Jerusalem is a holy city of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The old city is full of important buildings and believers of the three religions, making the sovereignty dispute in Jerusalem not only a religious issue, but also a political hot potato. Nowadays, events in Jerusalem have always been the focus of international news. Through these conflicts, God is revealing to us more about His heart and His ways, but even more, He is calling us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. 】
Pray for Aliyah: Ukrainian Jews
【Current Events: 243 new immigrants (olim) from Ukraine landed in Israel on 2/25, organized by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) and in the memory of its founder Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. For 20 years, the Fellowship has been helping Jews to make Aliya and has invested more than $200 million in bringing 75,000 olim to Israel. 】
【Background: Urgent appeal for endangered Jews in the Ukraine:
Refugee Camp: The ongoing civil war in Ukraine has caused great concern for the Jewish people living there. Over recent months, this conflict has turned into brutal urban warfare between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian forces, reducing the population of many cities. There are thousands of Jews now living in refugee camps in Ukraine who have decided there is no reason to go back to their homes and some will now make the move to Israel.
Eastern Ukraine: Yet many elderly Jews remain shut up in their homes in eastern Ukraine. There is no power or running water in many towns, the trains have stopped operating, shooting and mortar fire can be heard all around, and competing militias have set up roadblocks everywhere and demand bribes for safe passage.
Rescue Efforts: Efforts are underway to send in rescue teams to bring many isolated and internally displaced Jews out to safety. The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) has already handed over enough funds to assist almost 1,000 Jews awaiting flights to Israel.】(Source: Help Ukrainian Jews Come Home | ICEJ International https://int.icej.org/ukraine)
Revival Europe: Pray for the revival and transformation of Italy
God is the one reigning over Italy
【Current event: Italy was once the cradle of European nation and culture, dating from the time of the ancient Roman culture, Constantine the great, the first Roman emperor who believed in Christianity, through the culmination of the Renaissance, to the 7th largest economy in the world. But today Italy strives to move to make a change.
The population of Italy is approximately 60 million people, and the evangelicals are only 1.2%. The evangelical church is small and divided. Many Italians worship idols, and the society in Italy is becoming more secular.
Catholic culture is widespread in society
Italy is the nation with the most Catholic church buildings in the world, and having a rich and impressive architecture. There are 225 parishes, including the two sovereign states of San Marino and the Vatican. Many Catholic saints, martyrs and popes are also Italian. Catholic art flourished during the medieval Renaissance and the Baroque period, with many Italian artists such as Michelangelo. Italy has 87.8% Catholics and they worship idols and Santa Maria, and the Pope often asks the believers to pray for the New World order.
Italian political and economic issues
The problem of the Italian economy has a long history. The economic development gap between the North and the South is large. The government is corrupt, the bureaucratic efficiency is extremely low, and the number of the poor has soared in recent years. According to the Italian National Bureau Statistics in 2016, the extreme poverty population of Italy reached 4.7 million, accounting for 7.9% of the national population, more than double the number in 2007. The gross domestic product of Italy has not even returned to the level before the 2008 financial tsunami, and the unemployment rate is as high as 11.6%. Infrastructure, market reform and research funding are in a great need in the Italian economy, along with other issues such as political sluggishness, high debt, and reforming difficulty.
The new Italy Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said that he will sign a “One Belt and Road” agreement with Chinese President Xi Jinping on 22-24, March, to promote infrastructure. Garrett Marquis, spokesperson for the US White House National Security Conference, the main ally of the West, said that the Italian government’s support for China’s “One Belt, One Road” infrastructure plan is useless. The Italian government does not have to provide legitimacy for China’s infrastructure, which will jeopardize the entire alliance system between Rome and its Western allies. The United States was the first country to express public concern about the agreement between Italy and China.
The future and prospective of Italy need the prayers of intercessors to draw Italy into the sheep nations.]
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 Homecoming Gathering in Kyoto, Japan
【Current Event: The global homecoming gathering will host Kyoto Gathering in the Kyoto Industrial Promotion Center Corp. from March 27th to 30th, 2019. This will be a crucial time for Japan as the Lord said that He will act forcefully and swiftly to bring Japan a major breakthrough by the end of 2019.
Isaiah 59:19 “So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory the rising of the sun; When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him”
At the acceptable time God hears Japan. The event will coincide with the season of cherry blossoms in Kyoto, a week after the celebration of the Purim Festival. It will take place before the abdication of Emperor Hirohito of Japan on April 30 and the enthronement of the Crown Prince Naruhito on May 1 and the new era of Japan. This is not an accidental occasion. It is a key monument for such a right time, a right place and a right connection to host Kyoto Gathering.
Prelude to Kyoto gathering
The Kyoto gathering results from the last Korean Jeju gathering in March 2018. On Jeju Island, as Japanese families asked whether other nations would walk together with Japan, they answered “Yes!”. Then the Lord said that the Japanese gathering must come after the Aswan Strategic Journey in September 2018 and the Egyptian gathering in October 2018. The Lord promised that in these two gatherings He would make idols tremble, prostrate and shatter before Him fully. They believe and declare that it is the time for the Japan’s idol power to be demolished, and Japan shall rise up as a God’s new bride nation.
Okinawa gathering (July 1-3, 2014)
With less than a month of preparation, God gathered more than 2,000 Christian families to participate in the Okinawa gathering, with 16 nations, 35 Japanese-American families, many families from mainland China, more than 200 pastors and leaders from other areas of Japan.
The Okinawa gathering underwent confession of sins, repentance and forgiveness led by the Holy Spirit, bringing Japanese church and Christians out of the shame of World War II. Repentance is no longer a shame to them, but a reminder of obedience to the Holy Spirit. Repentance is no longer a memory of a past wound, but a broken heart healed and restored to a healthy heart. The enemy of the past – China, South Korea and Japan now has become family in the Lord.
In this gathering God released the anointing of prayer and power in the land of Japan, a new level of spiritual covering over Japan. God’s will was to open the gate of the Kingdom of Heaven above Japan, so they could enter God’s destiny and bring forth a domino effect to Asian neighboring nations.
Kobe gathering (May 3-6, 2015)
More than 3,000 Christians from 30 nations around the world were holding hands to pray for the revival of Japan and other nations, and declare Psalms 24:7: “Lift up your head, all you gates! Lift them up, everlasting doors, so that the glorious king can come in.” The host leader asked God to manifest the power of His glory and mighty works in Japan, then the Japanese children blew the shofar to praise the Lord. Chinese, Japanese and Korean families also forsook their prejudice for the unity, and nation connect with nation in Lord Jesus.
The Eiko Church Pastor said Kobe was hit by a magnitude 7.3 earthquake in January 1995, and now 20 years later, the Lord with great compassion called on His families from nations to come to the gathering to comfort Japan. When the church leaders chose the location for the gathering, they were attracted by the name “Kobe”, which means “the Gate of God”.】
Pray for the Indonesia First Nation Javanese
【Current event: The Javanese are the largest First Nation People in Indonesia and they are politically predominant. The Javanese ancestors are thought to have originated in South Taiwan, and migrated through the Philippines to reach Java between 1,500 BC and 1,000 BC, one of the significant cultural heritages in Southeast Asia.
Indonesia consists of 17,508 islands, also known as the State of the Thousand Islands, the largest archipelago in the world, crossing over Asia and Oceania. Javanese people live in most of Indonesia’s provinces, and Malaysia, Singapore and Suriname in South America. Javanese has 40.6% of the total Indonesian population, and Indonesian Chinese merely 1.2%.
Since Islam was brought to Indonesia by Indian merchants in the 15th century, the Javanese who originally believed in Hinduism and Buddhism were converted to Islam. Today though they identify themselves as Muslims, in fact they believe in the pan-ethnic belief, a mix of Hinduism and Muslim. The Javanese heritage appears to emphasis on a life of courtesy, respect and harmony. During their annual Muslim holiday, regardless of race or religion, Javanese will say “Mohon Maaf Lahir dan Batin” to ask from people whomever they meet for forgiveness of their past wrongdoings.
With the invasion of European countries, Christianity was introduced to Indonesia, and the colonial government granted Christianity many privileges, such as providing Christians 100 times more supplements than muslims. The gap between these two groups has become larger since then, as interactions reduced, and the gospel cannot reach out to muslims. The numbers of Muslims in Indonesia ranks the highest in the world, with 86% of Islam, 8.8% of Christianity, and 1.8 in Hinduism.
A brief history of Indonesia
The trade between Chinese and Javanese business appeared in the 2nd century. In the 7th century Middle Java flourished in buddhist kingdoms; in the 13th century, Arabs established Islamic kingdoms in Java and Sumatra. The Dutch had ruled Indonesia for more than 340 years since the 17th century. Indonesia was once occupied by Japan during the Second World W. After the war, Indonesia declared independence on August 17, 1945. However, due to the difficulty for commuters among the islands and the conflict in the interests of the political parties, the country fell in divisions. Meanwhile, the Dutch government tempted to re-establish the colonization in the land and refused to recognize Indonesia’s independence. The Dutch-Indonesia war broke out and lasted for four years. After the mediation from the United Nations, the Netherlands began to admit Indonesia’s independence on December 27, 1949. The United Nations accepted Indonesia as a member state on September 28, 1950. .
It was not until 1949 that the Dutch East India Company abandoned its administration of Indonesia. Indonesia became independent. Sukarno, born in East Java, was the national father of Indonesia and appointed as the first president. But he was prone to the leftists, social communism, Sukarno’s rulership was overthrown in 1969 by the commander of the army Suharto. Suharto became president and stepped down after nearly 3 decades of dictatorship by large-scale political demonstrations in 1998.
Rich in natural resources
Indonesia is a developing nation based on the agriculture, with the richness of natural resources such as oil and natural gas; wood, rubber and raw vines in the timber industry, and as well as minerals such as coal, marble, tin, nickel, copper and iron bauxite. Food crops mainly produce rice, corn, cassava, sweet potato and soybeans. Indonesia is one of the world’s largest tropical-crop producers, including rubber, coffee, palm oil, coconut, sugar cane, pepper and tea. Although the country’s natural resources are abundant, the gap between the rich and the poor is large because of cheap labor, as a result that a large number of local laborers work in other countries.
Disputes between Indonesian Chinese and the First People
The local media has shaped Indonesian Chinese in an image of wealthy group and a partner for the government in corruptions. In addition to a large gap between the haves and the have-nots, many Javanese people think that the Chinese have privileges so that racial disputes and jealousy occur. It is essential for Indonesia to make progress in overall environments, eliminate extremism, enhance the quality of education and reduce the gap between the haves and the have-nots.
The First People do not consider savings or investment, according to their tradition, but the Chinese are good at business, but pay a low wage to the local First People. The gap between the rich and the poor increases.
Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (nicknamed Ahok), the first governor of Jakarta from Chinese ancestry, was highly regarded as a Chinese Christian to renew the governance. In 2017, he was alleged for blasphemy against the Koran, failed in the election as Jakarta’s governor, and was controversially jailed for 2 years.】
