Every nation has a calling and purpose in God. It is the Father’s heart that each nation know and understand what that calling and purpose is for the Body of Messiah to align with, live it out, and pray for that destiny to be fulfilled. Individually, we as believers upon knowing what our calling in Adonai is, and choosing to actively pursue that call, begin to be anointed, empowered and lifted up by Elohim for the fulfillment of it. We must never be afraid of our calling as it is the Almighty Himself who is equipping us and our nation for such a time as this. Indonesia has been chosen and anointed, now it is time to see it through to the victorious end when Yeshua returns.
MANTLE OF JOSEPH
In a vision just before the beginning of the New Year 2020, we saw Indonesia as a young man receiving the mantle of Joseph. What does it mean to be a Joseph nation? This mantle is a mantle of authority, fullness and creativity. It carries an anointing for business, finance, multiplication, excellence, and being a good steward of the wealth of the land and the sea. It also means that Indonesia will no longer be a nation stolen from or an asking nation, but rather a giving nation, a nation that gives to the needy as well as a being a blessing to Israel. One of the keys for Indonesia to go to another level is to keep blessing Israel, but also very importantly to have diplomatic relations with Israel. One very crucial thing both individually and as a country that we must abide by is a 4,000 year old promise that God made with Abraham which is just as true today as it was then. Bless Israel and you will be blessed. Curse Israel and you will be cursed (Genesis 12:3). Is such thing as diplomatic relations with Israel Impossible? By whose standards can it not be done? Certainly not by the standard of the Creator of heaven and earth. Adonai will do it.
The youth is and will play a tremendous role in releasing the anointing of this Joseph mantle with the help of the older generation for us to stand on the shoulders of our elders and learn from the past instead of having to learn the hard way all over again. This is the time of the manifestation of the Malachi 4:5-6 generation, many generations working together as one, not just in the Church, but outside as well. 2020 is a year of opportunity for Indonesia, and the time is now when we are seeing and will see an unprecedented penetration of the Gospel of Peace in creative ways into every sphere of society.
PROPHETIC ENTREPRENEURIAL SPHERE
One of the effects of the Kingdom of God pervading society is what we have been seeing and receiving from the Holy Spirit in the past weeks. Elohim has been speaking to us that He is opening Indonesia to be one of the largest entrepreneurial and startup ecosystems in the world. He has also been showing us two elephants fighting, Indonesia against other nations like the EU, and other world powers in areas of global business, finance, etc. and winning. It is time for Indonesia to begin to win again, and win big in every aspect. The time of Indonesia’s rise has begun, but only because El Shadai is doing it, and we must remember to give all glory to Him.
This is the time for Indonesia just as in the time of Joseph ruling Egypt, when both the prophetic and the entrepreneurial will work together. Had Joseph not interpreted the dream of the Pharaoh, been appointed to the position of the prime minister of his day, and then acted according to the prophetic interpretation, both Egypt and Israel would have starved (Genesis 41:1-7,17-24). Even in times of lack and economic depression, as the prophetic and the entrepreneurial work together for the glory of YHWH, there will be no lack, but rather abundance, as strategic wisdom is implemented.
When we entered Indonesia at the turn of the New Year we received the words “revitalization” and “upgrade” for the whole of Indonesia, and saw the Father releasing a blanket of His supernatural hope over Indonesia. The hope of the Father combined with great expectation, a strong will, perseverance, and a relentless attitude will see Indonesia flourish in Yeshua as the Ecclesia abides in His word and relies on His promises. We recently had a vision that encapsulated this never quit attitude. In the vision we saw President Jokowi with a hammer tirelessly hitting a locked door until it fell down. This was a vision both for the government and all of Indonesia. The interpretation was that no matter what gets in the way, we must be relentless in knocking on the door of God’s promises until it opens. There will be some difficulties for the government to advance the way it needs to due to both internal (politics) and external (natural disasters) factors, but Yeshua says just keep moving. Don’t stop knocking on the door, Never quit!
HEALING THE LAND
From now to Pesaj (Passover) Adonai is going to be cleansing both Sumatra and the island of Borneo (East Kalimantan) where the new Capital will be built. The recent solar eclipse that travelled directly through Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia was not just a sign of the whole region working together as one Body in Yeshua, but also of the cleansing of the land the Father is bringing to both Sumatra and Borneo. The foundations are being redeemed and renewed by the blood of Yeshua, and it is for us, His remnant to align with this time of cleansing. If “My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). The promises of God are mostly conditional, especially the healing of the land. We must be willing to travail for the will of the Most High God to be done here and repent of our sins and the sins of our forefathers.
As well as we as the Body of Messiah repenting on behalf of past generations and being released of iniquity, King Emmanuel will also give signs in the natural of the cleansing that is taking place in the spirit. We are continuously having dreams of earthquakes, waking up thinking one was happening only to find out there was not. We know Indonesia is well known for earthquakes, but our understanding is that there will be a major earthquake this year, not for the purpose of destruction, but as a sign that there is a cleansing and a shift in Indonesia and the region.
WALL OF FIRE
It is well known that Indonesia makes up a large part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, but the wall of fire we have been seeing in our dreams for Indonesia is the protective kind not destructive. In these dreams we have been seeing a wall of protecting fire surrounding us, the same wall of fire spoken of in Zechariah 2:5, that says, “For I, declares the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her [protecting her from enemies], and I will be the glory in her midst.’” This applies both to the nation as a whole, but also for you, your families, cities, on so on. He Himself is a wall of fire around us, and as we are temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19-20), the glory of El Elyon is also within us. Now more than ever is the time to sit with Yeshua at the table He has set before us in the midst of our enemies (Psalm 23:5), to throw out every distraction and preoccupation in our lives, set it outside the wall of fire, and dine with Yeshua Himself in absolute shalom. As we are inundated with His agape presence, our worries, fears, anxiety, confusion, etc. no longer holds sway over our minds, and instead we take on more and more the identity of Christ and His true love. Walking in purpose and destiny is what King Emmanuel is calling His Indonesia ecclesia to this year. Are you ready to walk with the mantle of Joseph in Zechariah 2:5 fire this year Indonesia?
