It is astounding how many things can happen in one day when it is led by the Holy Spirit. It’s as if time itself slows down to allow for so many things to happen in such a short time. Thank you Holy Spirit for being the best administrator, teacher, comforter, guide and friend. You truly make everything better, and make our eyes see things more beautifully. Even though our time in the United States was short, every minute was so perfectly put together to meet the right people at the right time in the right place, and with such joy in our hearts. Our time in Miami, Florida was a magnificent couple of days of spending quality time with true friends and Kingdom Family, with people that we really cherish and who cherish us. It is so important to spend time with the people that God has put in our lives, and to nurture those relationships. We all have something to offer as a part of the Body of Christ, and we see clearly the importance of fellowship during the ministry of Jesus, as well as when we look at the early church following the death and resurrection of Yeshua. “With one accord they continued to meet daily in the temple courts and to break bread from house to house, sharing their meals with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people” (Acts 2:46). How many times did something miraculous, extraordinary or profound happen over a meal in the life of Christ, just enjoying the company of one another?
Our experience in Florida was packed, from the minute we landed to the minute we left. Just as San Fransisco is the Spiritual gate of the west of the U.S., Miami, Florida is the Spiritual gate of the east. So, from Atlanta the Holy Spirit led us to enter to the gate of the east, continuing to connect the highway of gold from California to Georgia, and now to Florida, bringing with us the millennial treasures of East Asia, and the mantle of marriage, connecting the west coast with the east coast, from one gate to another, paving the way for what is coming in the natural and in the Spirit. So, from the Golden State (California), we made it to the Gold Coast of Florida, a stretch of coastline where two Spanish treasure fleets sunk in 1715 and 1733 with an estimated 400 million dollars worth of unfound treasure still waiting to be uncovered.
As soon as we arrived to Miami, we met with Apostle Celmali, who represents our spiritual affiliation. She is a woman of God who at the age of 72 is still going strong in full time ministry that began when she was 39 years old. She has set herself apart for the Lord, and is full of the Holy Spirit of God. We honor her commitment to Adonai and thank her for following His calling and plan for her life for these past 33 years. We are grateful to have the ability to stand on her shoulders, and the shoulders of countless men and women of God that have come before this generation. We also had the pleasure of meeting with the rest of the counsel of Primicias (First Fruit) Ministries, who we had a great time fellowshipping with during our short time together. It was in 2015 that Emmanuel was ordained as a reverend by Apostle Celmali, and while we were there the HolySpirit opened the doors for both of us to be officially ordained as prophets, a moment we will never soon forget.
Two more precious friends we met up with were Fifi, a true warrior of the Most High God from Indonesia. She was originally flying to Orlando, but upon hearing we would be in Miami, she felt from the Holy Spirit to spend a couple of days with us before continuing on to Orlando. Such obedience to the Spirit of the Lord to take a series of planes over 24 hours for just three days in Florida is inspiring to behold, and we were privileged beyond words to meet with her once more after such an unforgettable time with the Lord in Indonesia. She was with another mighty woman of God, Susi, who we met for the first time. During our time together, Elohim used them to confirm many things regarding our next mission to the United states after the Asian Worship Tour. As we spoke, the Holy Spirit made it clear and confirmed through Susi that Colorado would be a very key state during the upcoming mission. Fifi was also confirmation of what the Spirit of God was telling us at the airport in Charlotte regarding Billy Graham as she had also had a layover there and had the same impression as we did upon seeing the sign of Billy Graham, that his mantle was being released over this new generation. After our prophetic encounter together, the Holy Spirit led us to a key water channel in Miami where we prayed for one another and the city.
Before leaving Florida we had one more divine appointment lined up by our good good Father. We had the amazing opportunity to be with Emilse who is hugely important to Emmanuel as during his time doing his masters in Boca Raton she really adopted him as a son. She is a formidable woman of God, and the Lord speaks to her very clearly through prophetic dreams. She is a powerful intercessor that is always praying for Israel and the nations. During our time fellowshipping together in Boca Raton we had a chance to meet Emmanuel’s ex-boss. She was a huge confirmation about the book we are writing, and without knowing that we were in the midst of writing our first book, she told us that we absolutely should write about what we had been a witness to in these past months. It was hard to leave after such an unforgettable time together, but we were grateful for the time we were able to spend with one another, no matter how brief.
Our brothers and sisters in Christ are essential to our growth in Yeshua, a fact made clear throughout the Word of God. We must be there for one another to build each other up, move one another forward and to push each other to greater heights for the Glory of God. A friend that you can trust and is desperate for more of The Almighty in their lives is invaluable to the process of growing in love with the Prince of Peace. “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). We are not meant to go it alone, but rather to come alongside one another in unity, leaving behind all pride, jealousy and manipulation. The Body of Christ is not me and my congregation, or me and my ministry, it is every Believer in every nation. “There is one body, but it has many parts. But all its many parts make up one body” (1 Corinthians 12:12). Now is the time to escape the confines of the walls of the church building and connect with one another in true unity of the Holy Spirit, based on the Word of God, welcoming as one, the return of the King of Glory. As we are one body working in unison, we can move forward at speed, but if the body is missing a foot, a leg, an arm, or a hand, His Kingdom come will be much delayed simply because we were to proud to work together, as we ourselves were glorified instead of The Great I Am. Only with the perfect Love of God can this become a reality, and thankfully, that perfect Love dwells within us. “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18). May the perfect Love of the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob consume you from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet and catapult you into the fulfillment of your destiny in Christ.
