A Gathering of Light and Waters
On the flight from Singapore to Hong Kong, the Holy Spirit was revealing to us that the enemy had been releasing his darkness over Hong Kong, and that He was sending us, along with thousands more of His remnant to be the light to come and dissipate the darkness of the enemy, and reminded us of Genesis 1:1-4. As we landed in Hong Kong we were declaring over and over, “let there be light”. We landed amidst the turmoil of the ongoing protests in Hong Kong that had engulfed the city for more than a month previously, and had just recently having been re-ignited. The date of the gathering had been announced far before the protests had begun, and it was the perfect timing of God for so many of his sons and daughters of light to come at such a critical time. As we arrived to the gathering, we walked into the stadium packed full of more than ten thousand people from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Israel, etc., culminating in more than 30 nations overall.
We entered the second day of the gathering in the afternoon that began with beautiful worship unto the Great I Am. As soon as the stadium erupted in worship in Spirit and Truth, the Spirit of the Lord began to speak to us more deeply about His purpose for bringing us all together. That afternoon was the beginning of a cascade of revelation from the Spirit of Adonai. The seats we sat in were directly beneath a spotlight, making it hard to see the crowds around us as we stood up. Ironically, the section we were led to sit in was 16, which is related to the letter Ayin in the Hebrew alphabet, meaning “to see”. With eyes closed in worship, our spiritual eyes were opened to see Yeshua and His angels bringing light to each person until the entire stadium was full of light, reminding us once again of Genesis 1:4 when on the first day of creation, “God said “let there be light” and there was light. Then we began to see that this was not only a gathering of the Light, but also a gathering of the waters of God, each of us being carriers of the living water of Yeshua, and the Holy Spirit gave us Genesis 1:6. “And God said, “Let there be an expanse [of the sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters [below the expanse] from the waters [above the expanse]”. Suddenly, Emmanuel could hear the sound and the song of the angels singing. The angels that came were moving the gathering of waters like the angel at the pool of Bethesda (John 5:4). All of the Remnant gathers together, and as we worship Him with heavenly melodies the atmosphere was stirred, activated and aligned with Heaven.
Revelation of Ehud
As we all continued to worship, Emmanuel had a vision in which he saw Hong Kong moving like there was an earthquake, but when he looked closer, he saw the body of a serpent moving beneath the land, and the Spirit of Adonai was saying to us and the Chinese Family to keep the serpent beneath our feet, and not to let it raise up. Emmanuel saw that we all had armored boots and swords we were using to cut the snake to keep it beneath our feet. Then he heard, Ehud, Judges 3. He immediately went to the word of God to read Judges 3, and read in verse 16, “Now Ehud had made a double-edged sword about a cubit long, which he strapped to his right thigh under his clothing.” After reading this, he looked up and the worship began to change and the atmosphere shifted to one of warfare. The drummer began to play the snare drum as if we were an army on the march, keeping us in step, and the worship leader was struck by the Holy Spirit and began to worship with an intermittent war cry, like the swift strike of a sword that hits its mark, brief, and sharp with everyone joining in. Swordsman walked out onto stage in formation poised and ready to strike.
In the time before Ehud, Israel had worshipped false idols and strayed far from God, and other nations attacked and subdued them. Then the people of Israel cried out and turned their hearts to Abba, then God rose up Ehud and the Israelites, giving them strategy to defeat their enemies, delivering Israel and securing peace for eighty years afterward. An army is raising up who declare the Word of God, like a double edged sword (Hebrews 4:12), with the authority of the most High God who raises up kings and deposes them (Daniel 2:21). Just as in the times leading up to Israel being saved through Ehud, idolatry is raising its ugly head, and we must never forget that it was idolatry that always preceded the fall of Israel to its enemies. What are you worshipping this season? What has your undivided devotion and attention? The Bible tells us, “Where you treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). Where is your treasure? This generation will not fall, but rise and cry out like Ehud who was used to deliver Israel and bring eighty years of peace.
Now more than ever, the serpent/dragon is trying to steal the kingship anointing that is over Hong Kong, but the King of Kings is saying to Hong Kong will you give it to the serpent or give it back to Me? Hong Kong has been blessed for a long time, and it is crucial to remember where that blessing comes from, the Great I Am. This is all happening as part of God’s perfect plan, and the people of Hong Kong are turning more than ever to Yeshua, who is glorified above all, and is coming in a powerful way. After an amazing time of worship in the presence of Elohim, we began to pray for the leaders and authorities in Hong Kong and in mainland China.
To Bless or Curse? To Forgive or Retaliate?
The atmosphere shifted from a time of warfare worship to one of intercession. Even amidst the mass protests outside against the government and authorities, the whole stadium began to forgive and to bless the authorities of Hong Kong and mainland China. Many would say that such a thing is counterintuitive, but what does the Bible tell us? Do you want to know? The Bible tells us to pray for the kings and all who are in positions of high authority (1 Timothy 2:2). We are not saying don’t hold governments and authorities accountable, far from it, but to remember that God never goes so far as to tell us to curse our governments or those in authority. The command is to bless, not curse. When we forgive and bless, we immediately take away all power and legality of the enemy over a situation, and a nation in this case. The accuser of the brethren cannot accuse when one forgives. Remember, “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places (Ephesians 6:12). It is for us to bless and not curse, because “Vengeance is Mine” says Elohim (Deuteronomy 32:35), not ours.
Deep in that moment of intercession Lion had a vision of the parliament building in Beijing with full attendance of all of China’s main leaders, but looking down from a bird’s eye view there was no roof on the building, and the Spirit of the Lord said, that every time the Body of Messiah prays like this, there is an open heaven over the places of government, creating an atmosphere of salvation, transformation and divine revelation. 1 Timothy 2:3-5 goes on to say, “This [kind of praying] is good and acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who wishes all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge and recognition of the [divine] truth. For there is [only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and mankind, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom [a substitutionary sacrifice to atone] for all, the testimony given at the right and proper time.” Are you blessing or are you cursing? Are you forgiving, or are you concocting your revenge? Are you fighting fleshly enemies or the enemies of God? Let’s be sure our strategy is from the Father, and not simply a fleshly reaction to that of the fallen kingdom of darkness.
Back to Jerusalem!
The next and final night was the crescendo of revelation and understanding of why the Holy Spirit had gathered us all together in Hong Kong. As we worshipped, leading up to the final moments of that night Emmanuel had yet another vision, this time of the whole map of Northeast Asia, and it was pure gold, but looking closer saw that it was the remnant at who were the gold of the land covering the map, gold purified by the fire of great testing in the physical, and the gift of salvation and the Holy Spirit. Then he saw in the vision a golden highway in the middle of the sea connecting first the Northeast Asian nations and then the Southeast Asian nations with one another, and converging as a maritime highway back to Jerusalem. This is the time of the activation of the maritime road back to Jerusalem! Adonai sees the persecution of so many Chinese people and hears the cries of His people and the blood of the Martyrs. The testing has not been for nothing, but has created a generation of sold out pure gold set apart unto Elohim who hear the call in the Spirit to gather the brethren, raise the banner of the Prince of Peace and return to city of God. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10) is being manifested amongst the Body of Messiah in China and greater Asia, and the Kingdom of God in the power of the Holy Spirit in the perfect love of the Father through Jesus Christ is advancing at a frightening pace. Are you part of the army or just a bystander?
A Sign in the Heavens
The Light of Yeshua in us is being released into the world, bringing entire nations into alignment with the heart of the Father and His eternal times. After separating the darkness from the light and the waters, Genesis 1:14-19 tells us that on the 4th day God created the sun, the moon and the stars in the sky so that we would know the times the days and the seasons. Now Yeshua is bringing His powerful light like never before so that we can run according to His perfect times and not the times of the fallen kingdom of darkness. That night was Friday night in Hong Kong, and as the sun went down that evening, it signaled that shabbat had officially begun. “And by the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done (Genesis 2:2). In one final prayer during the final night of the conference, a key leader of the Messianic Body in Israel, hearing from the Spirit of the Lord, reminded us that the wise men from the east were the ones who followed the star to Bethlehem near Jerusalem where Yeshua was born, and brought gifts (Matthew 2:1-11). The leader on stage then said, today we come from Jerusalem to the far east to say, that you, the Chinese Believers for us are a sign like the star that led the wise men to Yeshua. Then they brought up three rings, and gave one each to the three different young representatives of China, Korea and Japan, representing their shared destiny in bringing the glory of God from the rising of the sun (Psalm 113:3) back to Jerusalem to welcome the return of Yeshua to Zion. As shabbat began, all ten thousand of us took communion together remembering the Broken Body of Yeshua and the blood of the lamb, the source of our joy and shalom.
One Body in One Accord! There is Victory in the Camp of Elohim!
Even as the dragon awaits to devour the new born child, Adonai is giving His remnant eagle’s wings like the woman of revelation 12 to hide her and give her nourishment in the most unlikely of places, hidden from the dragon. This biblical year of 5779 is a year of giving birth, and the birthing of the Chinese brethren and the unity of greater Northeast Asia is at its final stages in this season. As the Biblical month of 5780 begins, we will see the child (Sold out Remnant) born. Now is the time to pray as never before for the Body of Messiah in China, Korea and Japan as this year quickly comes to a close. Join us and millions of others as we pray for the light of Yeshua to invade these nations, for the waters of the Remnant to be released, and for us all to align to the heavenly melodies and mandates of heaven. Pray with us for the Ehud’s to raise up to wield the sword, the Word of God and speak the light and the truth with the authority by which we have been given as co-heirs with Christ at the right hand of the Father. Let us together confound the darkness as we bless our leaders and governments, and forgive completely the atrocities and wrongs of the past, giving it all in to the hand of the Ancient of Days. Now more than ever Is the time to tell people to go back to Jerusalem, the place that God Almighty has chosen and desired for His dwelling place! Encourage our brothers and sisters in China, Korea, Japan and greater Asia that we stand with them! Our pain is your pain and our joy is your joy! Let us take heed of this sign coming from the East to Jerusalem with great zealousness just as the wise men of the East did to Jerusalem to see Yeshua the Messiah. It is a great sign indeed, so let us pray and declare the victory of the Lord with a shout, a blow of the shofar and a great roar with the Lion of the tribe of Judah leading the way. God bless you mighty people of God! Let us run together and pave the way for the return of the King of glory!.
