Our individual destinies in the perfect will of God as part of the Body of Christ are undoubtedly intertwined with His perfect will for the nations of the world. “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it” (1 Corinthians 12:27). Just as each of us makes up the Body of Christ with a different and unique role to play, so too do the nations of the world. “The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it”(Revelation 21:24). In the Word of God we see that each city and nation was used in different ways for the bringing about of the will of the Father. Since being in Singapore, we have seen that even the smallest of nations can and will be used in a very mighty way to pave the way for the second coming of The King of Glory. It’s role in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world cannot be underplayed. Even though when we see with our natural eyes that Singapore is barely visible on the world map, the destiny of Singapore rivals that of King David, who, though being the youngest of his brothers and least liked in His family, He was anointed by God to be the mightiest King that Israel ever knew. “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Before arriving to Singapore, the Holy Spirit was very clear to us, saying that Singapore is the Spiritual Gate of South East Asia, and that it was essential to enter through Singapore before going to any other country in this region. When we arrived we were led by the Holy Spirit to do some prayer walks, and began to understand what the Lord is doing here for such a time as this, and what He is about to do. We first began the prophetic mapping at the heartbeat of the city, in the bay area and the Gardens by the Bay.
As we worshiped Yeshua in Spirit and Truth, the following points were the most prominent:
As we walked around the waters of the bay, surrounded by the skyline of the city, we kept seeing statues of the mascot of the city which is a merlion, a lion head with a mermaid body. the Holy Spirit began to show and tell us that Singapore is a lion in the Spirit, not a merlion, and that the time to cut off the tail has come. It is time for the Body of Christ to re-attach itself to the head of the Lion of Judah, and to properly represent Yeshua. This nation is the head, not the tail, and the enemy has been trying to blind the people with an abomination, steering them away from their true calling, when in fact its true destiny as a nation is to be the Lion of Southeast Asia. “The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath” (Deuteronomy 28:13). As the head and not the tail, it is time for Singapore to roar with the authority of the Lion of Judah.
The Lord was also showing us that He was stirring the waters in Singapore, bringing the dead waters to life, which is the activation of the Holy Spirit and the manifestation of the calling for Singapore to operate in the Apostolic anointing to the nations and back to Jerusalem, in all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit for the Glory of God (Genesis 1:2, 1 Corinthians 12:7-12). When the waters of a nation are activated, the hand of God guides the lost fish into His nets of salvation that are obediently cast into the waters by His faithful servants and friends. (John 21:6, Luke 5:1-11).
He continued to show that He was connecting the spiritual door of Singapore to the Golden Gate in Jerusalem, the gate by which Yeshua will return in His Glory (Ezekiel 43:2). Not just Spiritually, but also geographically a bridge connects the gates of both cities. Singapore and most of Southeast Asia is in the exact direction of the Golden gate in Jerusalem. What a time we live in to experience the alignment of the nations back to the prophetic clock of God which is Israel! From Jerusalem the Gospel of Peace was sent, and to Jerusalem it is returning (Mark 6:7).
For many years, Singapore has been dubbed the “Antioch of Southeast Asia”, and how true it is. People from this region and all corners of the earth will come to Singapore to both give and receive training and instruction to be sent forth to the nations. They will have the revelation of the heart of the Father, the key of David, be worshippers in Spirit and in Truth, have the inheritance of the nations, and the nine gifts of the Spirit used not to boast, but to give glory to God. “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord” (2 Corinthians 10:17). Not only will men and women of God be trained and sent forth from Singapore, but it will also be a place of financial blessing and provision to the Body of Christ and to Jerusalem just like the ships of Tarshish were. “Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, bringing your children from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor” (Isaiah 60:9). We can also see the role that the brethren in Antioch played in Acts 11:19-15:35 where Antioch was the place Paul and Barnabas stayed and taught the people the word of God for over a year, and that in a time of great need for the Believers in Jerusalem that Antioch sent provision for all of them.
One of the key verses for Singapore for these prophetic times is Isaiah 60:1 which says, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you”. Join us with prayers of encouragement to the Sons of Light in Singapore as they enter into this time of acceleration in the Spirit toward the fulfillment of God’s perfect purpose and will for their nation. The beginning of this new era has been firmly set in motion and the clock will not be wound backwards. Roar Singapore! We run with you in the victory that is ours through our Lord and Savior! “For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it hasteth toward the end, and shall not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not delay” (Habakkuk 2:3). The time is now.
