We had the great opportunity to visit the section of the Great Wall of China that overlooks the border with North Korea. At the ending point of the Great Wall we raised an altar of worship in Spirit and in Truth and proclaimed the mighty Word of God as the Holy Spirit led us. As we worshiped our Father in Heaven, the Lord gave us a vision of angels coming down from heaven like balls of fire and smashing the wall into pieces, but the bricks remained intact. After the destruction of the walls, the angels began building bridges, using the stones from the wall, across the border to Korea, and to build whatever the Body of Messiah in China needed. The wall represents the government of China which will be used to prosper those it had once persecuted and oppressed, namely believers of Yeshua. Then the Lord clearly said that the underground church will soon become the above ground church in China. It is not by chance of happenstance that we were also able to visit the largest underground church in Beijing, where we worshipped and prayed with our Kingdom Family. They are strong and courageous, and Fear the Lord above all else. We know that their strength is truly in the joy of the Lord, and are excited to see what He will do through them.The Nehemias and the Ezras are raising up in the nation of China!
The true Believers have been persecuted for so long in China and in North Korea, that in many places their morale now resembles the city of Jerusalem during the times of her Desolation as described in the book of Nehemiah, where one of Nehemia’s brothers brings him news of the Jews who had escaped captivity and the state that the city was in. “The remnant there in the province who survived the captivity are in great distress and reproach, and the wall of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates are burned with fire” (Nehemiah 1:3). However, That is just the beginning of the book. It is now that the Nehemiahs and Ezras are standing tall and rallying the people of God to their victorious destiny. In the time of Jerusalem’s greatest distress and ruin, the Lord of Hosts gave favor to Nehemiah in the site of King Cyrus of Persia, and when Nehemiah asked for the provisions needed to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, everything he needed was granted him by the King (Nehemiah 2:5-6). Many enemies are scheming against the believers in China in these times, just as they had done when Nehemiah had rallied the people of Jerusalem who were tired and hopeless, to rebuild the wall. “But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then were very wroth, and conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it” (Nehemiah 4:7-8). The response to this renewed persecution is the key to the remnant of China and Korea rising from the dust and ashes. The response from Nehemiah to the threat of their enemies was not to back down, but rather to raise up, and he told the people, “Do not be afraid of them; [confidently] remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and [with courage from Him] fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and for your homes.” (Nehemiah 4:14).
It is for such a time as this that it was prophesied, “In that day I shall raise up and restore the fallen tabernacle (booth) of David, and wall up its breaches [in the city walls]; I will also raise up and restore its ruins and rebuild it as it was in the days of old” (Amos 9:11). Just as the rebuilders of the wall of Jerusalem, we must be both builders and soldiers, with one hand free to work and the other to wield our swords and fight (Nehemiah 4:17). The very empire that destroyed the city of Jerusalem and took the Jews into captivity was used by God not only to restore Jerusalem with its own resources, but also to rebuild the Temple of the Lord with the money from the treasuries of King Cyrus, and to give back everything that was taken from the Temple (Ezra 6:3-5). Your time of restoration is coming swiftly, paid for by those who were once your destroyers and enemies.
To the believers in China and North Korea, the remnant in the nations are with you. We are interceding on your behalf as watchmen on the walls (Isaiah 62:6). We as the living stones (1 Peter 2:4-6) will not stand idly by as the enemy taunts and encircles you. Stand strong in the victory that is already ours through the Blood of Yeshua. Do not worry, “For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” (Deuteronomy 20:4). Join with us as we intercede for our brothers and sisters in China and North Korea and prophesy victory in the name of Jesus, and the complete restoration in the fullness of God’s perfect will for these nations. China and Korea are nations for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His name will be lifted up on high all the way back to Jerusalem, and all of the nations will glorify God knowing He has done a great thing in China and North Korea. Amen!
