Biblical Calendar Reset
For the first time in 3,500 years since the Exodus from Egypt, the majority of the world’s population is being forced to stay indoors to celebrate Pesach with our families just as the Israelites did that fateful night in Egypt (Exodus 12:3). It is a not so subtle invitation from the Almighty for us to open our eyes to what is happening according to His Word, like a worldwide trumpet blast for all who have ears to hear. As for us, consider our attention gotten. As we take a closer look at the ten judgments upon Egypt, we see that each one was specifically targeting an Egyptian god just to show that the God of Israel is the One True God. This COVID-19 has brought the idols and systems of traditional society to a screeching halt, just as it did the society of Egypt when the judgments of the Most High came down. The system that had nearly stripped the divine identity away from the Israelites, that shackled and enslaved a people destined to be the light of the world, and give birth to Yeshua the Messiah, they were given the opportunity to shake off the oppressive and idolatrous paradigm and have hope once again for the nearly forgotten covenant of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
It is an invitation in big bold neon letters from the Father to get back on track of the Biblical calendar that was begotten this very month of Abib, now called Nissan, when Adonai said to the Israelites “This month shall be the beginning of months to you; it is to be the first month of the year to you” (Exodus 12:2). For the first time, the entire world is being brought to a screeching halt at the same Moed (appointed time) as the Exodus nearly 3,500 years ago! Have you ever wondered why we stopped following the calendar of the Bible even though it is clearly, methodically and purposefully laid out for us in Scripture by the Creator of the Universe? Has it ever given you pause knowing that the Word of Adonai tells us very plainly that the anti-messiah is keen to change the times and laws (Daniel 7:25)? For three hundred years after the death and resurrection of Yeshua the Body of Mashiah continued to run according to the Biblical calendar, celebrating Shabbat from sundown Friday until sundown on Saturday, they celebrated the appointed biblical feasts, celebrating Pesach (Passover) according to its fulfillment by the death and resurrection on the cross that the feast itself prophesied, the feast of unleavened bread that now represents the sinless Body of Yeshua that was broken for, and Shavuot (Pentecost) that was the very day when the Holy Spirit was poured out, etc. Notice a pattern? Everything happens according to the Biblical calendar. So what happened? Why did it all fade away, and what calendar, or whose are we living according to now? If you haven’t guessed it, the hint is, not Elohim’s.
WHO CHANGED THE TIMES AND LAWS?
So let’s go back to the shift of the times and laws that most historians and theologians describe as the beginning of the renaissance of Christendom when persecution and martyrdom of believers in the Roman Empire ceased, and Emperor Constantine the Great was converted miraculously. That’s the official story, but the facts tell us something different altogether.
Roman Emperor Constantine was famously and outspokenly known as a person who hated Jews and everything Jewish, was a Sun worshipper, and even changed the historic sites of Yeshua’s tomb and site of His crucifixion. Skeptical? Research it for 5 minutes and you can see for yourself. He is the same guy that changed the day of rest (Shabbat) from Saturday to Sunday to honor the sun god (Sol), because he thought he was the son of the sun-god, and also implemented Easter as an official holiday, a popular pagan holiday as an official church holiday instead of the Biblical holiday of Pesach (Passover). Instead of persecuting the Believers (Christians), which the Romans had done for 300 years which accelerated the spread of the Gospel to the ends of the earth in the power of the Kingdom, he made it the official religion of the Roman Empire, thereby controlling the doctrine and theology. From this the Catholic Church was born, not from Peter, and its false theology then became the standard of the state while all other “Judaising Believers” who dared follow the Word of God, continued to be persecuted and martyred for the next 1,000 plus years as the Pope declared He was the mouthpiece of Yeshua on earth. The Holy Spirit, miracles, signs and wonders became a thing of the past, and Yeshua became a distant figure hard to reach through the red tape of Priests, “Saints”, Mary, the Pope, etc. Sound Biblical? The answer would be yes if we are talking about the antichrist spirit. Anyone shocked yet? That is just the beginning, but now how does that bring us to today, and what is the major shift Abba Father is bringing to the Body of Messiah? What are some of the signs of the times?
HIS TIMES AND PARADIGMS REVEALED
Now more than ever before since the times of the first Ekklesia after the death and resurrection of Yeshua believers are delving into the Word of Adonai like never before, and rediscovering the redemptive purposes of the feasts of Scripture, not in a legalistic way, but being led and taught by the Holy Spirit giving glory to the Great I Am. The Word, Yeshua, is alive and active and full of power (Hebrews 4:12). People in every denomination and every nation are experiencing the power of the Word and the Ruach Ha’Kodesh (Spirit of God) and we are beginning to glimpse what the 12 Apostles and so many countless others witnessed, the power of the Gospel of the Kingdom (Matthew 24:14). A resetting of the times and seasons according to YHWH instead of the times of man is taking place. His Moedim (times and seasons) have never ceased, but the veil of the times and paradigms of the world are being lifted for us to see clearly what we could not see before. This year, 5780 the year of the Hebrew letter PEI, the Mouth of Elyon (The Most High God) speaking, has officially begun with this first biblical month of Nissan. Rabbinical tradition tells us to celebrate the beginning of the year at the start of the 7th Biblical month during the Biblical feast of Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), but scripture clearly tells us the year starts during Abib (Nissan) (Exodus 12). The Biblical Calendar is designed by El Elyon, not man or tradition, and it’s important we keep it that way. The first Biblical feast of 5780, (Pesach) sets the stage for the rest of the year, and looking at how it has begun so far, Abba is truly speaking loud and clear that this is the year where we will not just celebrate, but also experience and encounter His times and seasons as if they were happening all over again for the first time. If Pesach is any measure, then we had better start preparing for Shavuot (Pentecost)!
HERE’S YOUR SIGN(s)
Besides this being the first Pesach since the first one in Exodus where nearly the whole world is being forced to observe it, even unintentionally, there are more signs that also make it crystal clear this is not just another feast.
During key times in the Biblical calendar like right now for example during Pesach, what is transpiring in the earth, events both natural, political, economic, etc. are a manifestation of what is happening in the spirit. To put it simply, major events happen during the times of the feasts of Adonai, because these days specifically have been marked by Elohim as special and pivotal in the time and season we are living in. For example, right now in Israel, during Pesach we have received an unusual amount of rain and even hail for the first time in nearly two decades during this time of year, causing the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) which was at its lowest point in 2018 to overflowing its banks, causing the authorities to have to release water soon from the reservoir. This has only happened twice before, once 28 years ago in 1992 and in 1969. From years of desperate drought to the Gallilee suddenly overflowing its banks all during Pesach is a miracle.
In Jerusalem on Friday April 9, the day of Yeshua’s Crucifixion, we watched in awe as a very unusual site in Jerusalem graced our eyes as double rainbows and multiple rainbows popped up throughout the city, from our view stretching from the Mount of Olives, over Mount Zion and the hills surrounding Zion during the entire day. From the place where Yeshua was crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended and will return, for there to be a manifestation like that on such a day was a very clear sign of the times, a reminder of Abba’s promise that He will rule and reign in Zion, and that Yeshua is returning soon to the Mount of Olives.
Meanwhile in the United States, the closest Allie of Israel and the worlds democratic superpower, President Donald Trump addressed the nation on Friday, the day of the crucifixion and death of Yeshua, acknowledging his relationship with Yeshua and inviting the whole country to have a personal relationship with God. He quoted Isaiah 60:2 that speaks specifically to Zion, saying, “For in fact, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness will cover the peoples, but Adonai will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you.” A word of hope to the United States and a blessing to Israel and Jerusalem in accordance with what Psalm 122:6 tells us to do, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you [holy city].”
On the same night of Friday April 9th, the Anak Krakatao volcano in Indonesia erupted, the strongest eruption since 2018 activating the Pacific Ring of Fire, simultaneously triggering the activation of 15 other volcanoes around the world as far as Mexico and Japan. On the day of Yeshua’s death on the cross, an earthquake shook Jerusalem splitting the veil that separates YHWH from man in two (Matthew 27:51), and on that same day more than 2,000 years later from the ends of the earth a great shaking happened as hell remembered the first day of Yeshua’s visit to preach the message of salvation to those who who were already dead (1 Peter4:6), and took the keys of hell and death (Revelation 1:18).
Meanwhile in the Knesset (Israel’s Parliament), The deadline to form a unity government has been set, still during the Pesach celebration, to break a one-year political deadlock with one of the greatest developments in Israel’s history on the line, the annexation of Judea and Samaria (The Jordan Valley). It is a sign of the restoration of the inheritance of Israel, but also a huge milestone in the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy as we know the Gospel went from Jerusalem, through Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. With the annexation of these lands it signals the return of the Gospel of Peace from the ends of the earth to Jerusalem, and the times that Paul spoke of when the fullness of the gentiles has come in, and the partial hardening of the hearts of Israel to the Gospel would be over (Romans 11:25). This signals nothing less than the coming salvation of Israel!
RESURRECTION, ASCENSION, PENTECOST: THE JOURNEY
The end of Pesach has arrived, meaning there is more still to come, but we must also be aware of what is coming next according to Scripture. After Yeshua rose again on the third day April 12th (Nissan 18) He appeared to the disciples and others over a period of 40 days (Acts 1:3) then told them to wait for the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4), which came on Shavuot (Pentecost) 10 days later. We know this because the celebration of Shavuot, also known as the Feast of weeks takes place after the 49 days (7 Weeks) of the counting of the Omer which starts on the second night of Pesach (Leviticus 23:15-16). That’s right, they were celebrating an “Old Testament” Feast commemorating Moses receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai, but its redemptive purpose was revealed to them on that day when the Holy Spirit came. The counting of the Omer is important because it was the daily offering of the first fruits of the barley harvest, then after Shavuot (Pentecost) the first fruit of the wheat harvest. There is no longer a temple for offerings nor is it needed, but according to the Biblical calendar, this is the time to give our first fruit offering, our tithe, unto the Most High as we feel led by the Holy Spirit, giving thanks for the successful harvest and harvest to come.
It was during the counting of the Omer that Yeshua appeared to the disciples several times talking to them about the Kingdom of Adonai (Acts 1:3). This time period lasts from the sunset of April 9th to nightfall on May 28th. For all of us, this period of time should be a special time with Yeshua, a time to ask about the Kingdom of YHWH and how we are to live and teach the Kingdom. This time of intimacy and revelation is a key in the lock of the door of Shavuot. Would you like to know the mysteries of the Kingdom?
CONCLUSION: CALL TO WORSHIP THE FATHER FROM EXODUS TO REVELATION
Let My people go to worship Me in the wilderness (Exodus 7:16-18). That was the purpose of the judgments and the blood of the lamb on the doorposts. That was the purpose of the blood of Yeshua, so that neither death nor sin would separate us any longer from the Father, as Yeshua is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). The time when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers (John 23), is at hand and it is our great privilege to do so. We remember the reason for the blood. With our bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit, our homes as a safe place for our families, we worship like the worshippers the Father has been looking for, like King David before the Ark of the Covenant, not aware of the eyes of others, but only the eyes of the Father in his joy and exaltation of the King of glory. Our worship is like the blood of the Lamb constantly upon the doorposts of our hearts. The fulfillment of the rebuilding of the Tabernacle of David is at hand (Amos 9:11), and the time will come when every nation, tribe and tongue will gather before the throne of the Most High and worship Him forever (Revelation 7:9). We have been brought away from the stage of the Church so that we can remember that our worship is not for people, but for Adonai. Our homes have become the Tabernacles of David, and our audience is the Great I Am. Have you made your home an altar of worship in Spirit and Truth? Have you been walking with Yeshua and asking Him about the mysteries of the Kingdom? Now is the (Moed) appointed time in which we are being called between the two Cherubim on the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant as Elohim called Moses (Exodus 25:22).
Society has come to a screeching halt once again as it did 3,500 years ago in Egypt, and we are being called to take up the banner of victory, to prepare just as the Israelites were commanded to be ready to answer the call of “Let My people go and worship Me”. No more tradition and religion that has kept us from the will of the Father, that has bound us and enslaved us from Him that has set us free by His blood. The Biblical calendar and clock are being reset, the veil is being lifted and the choice is being given for us to behold and see Him in the fulness of time, or continue in our old ways that glorify things instead of the Great I Am. Let us see clearly the purpose for which these things are being allowed to happen in the season in which it is happening that we might heed the call of the King of glory to break away from legalism and tradition, and enter into the power of the Kingdom rooted in the Word of God, His perfect love and through the Holy Spirit. The time of the harvest has arrived, the latter rain is coming, and we are being called to prepare for it in this momentous and spectacular time. Are we ready? Are we willing? Are we capable of leaving behind the paradigm of slavery and bondage to things that are not of Adonai. The answer is yes as the Blood of the Lamb, Yeshua has set us free, but whether we are willing is a matter of choice. Freedom and victory are in the air contrary to the world’s view, and the Kingdom is still at hand! We are arrows in the Father’s quiver, not ashamed and ready to meet the enemy at the gate (Psalm 127:3-5)! Hag Pesach Sameach Kingdom family!
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!
Today May 1, 2019 marks the beginning of a new era in Japan as the 126th Emperor begins his reign. His ascendence to the throne is historic in many ways, but one above all is very important in the times we are living. The new Emperor, Naruhito, is a Christian. Yes, the Emperor, once considered the highest authority in Japan’s Shinto religion, and worshipped as a god by the Japanese people, now worships the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In a country where the Christian population has maintained less than 1% of Believers for over a century and a half, a move of Adonai is making ripples in the nation that evangelists around the world have referred to as hard dry ground for the Gospel of Peace. Make no mistake however, the plans of the Almighty for Japan are beyond our wildest dreams and understanding. Isaiah 45:6 says, “So that all may know, from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting, that there is none but Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other.” Japan, known as the “Land of the Rising Sun” who’s flag bears the risen sun now has an Emperor who worships the risen Son, Yeshua. Our eyes will see and our ears will hear in these end times Japan called the “Land of the Risen Son” as the glory of God fills the nation to overflow.
The Lord has called Japan to be the Catalyst of a move of the Holy Spirit that will engulf and unify the countries of Northeast and Southeast Asia. As Emperor Naruhito takes the throne of Japan, it is officially the beginning of the so called Reiwa era in the country, which according to the Japanese government means “Harmony and Beauty”. According to this Biblical season, the declaration of a new era in Japan aligns perfectly with the clock of God. The current Biblical month of Nissan ushers in the new year 5779 according to the Word of God. It marks the beginning of a year of the justice of the Ancient of Days that will see an acceleration of things done in the darkness brought to light, and a subsequent alignment of the nations to His perfect plan in the short time before the return of the King of Glory.
Japan, once the warmongering imperial power in the region, despised still by many after over 70 years of peace, with the smallest percentage of Believers in Northeast Asia will be used by Elohim to unite the Body of Christ in China, Korea, and Japan. If it seems impossible to you, ask the Father how impossible it seems to Him. Having had the joy to worship with our brothers and sisters in Japan, we can tell you first hand that they worship as the Bride of Yeshua, pure and set apart for the Lord, embraced by His presence in a double portion. The Remnant of the nation are more united than ever before. Gatherings to worship the Great I Am with no motive other than to praise Him and give Him all glory is leading to the replacement of man’s plans with the plans of the Eternal. The Bride of Christ in Japan is coming into agreement with the heart of the Father, and as the Emperor worships the King of kings, it marks the beginning of an unprecedented time in a nation with the oldest Monarchy in the world. Join us in welcoming the Lord of Hosts, the Lion of the tribe of Judah to come roaring in power to Japan so that all will know that He is the Lord, and there is no other. Abba! We welcome your wave of glory to wash over Japan, to heal the land, awaken the sleepers, and unite the region in the name of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach.
Four months ago, at the beginning of the Asian Worship Tour, the Holy Spirit gave us a vision of a ring of fire in the Spirit that goes through Korea Japan and China, including Hong Kong and Macau with Korea being the beginning and ending point of the ring.
We kept asking the Lord about Taiwan, wondering why it was not included in the Circle of Fire. During the gathering in Kwangju, He showed us another vision that gave us the answer. Instead of one Ring of fire there were now two rings, the first ring of fire mentioned above and the second ring of fire consisting of Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
The circles were exactly the same size. within the two circles were two pools of water with the nations floating in the water trying to come together.
The six nations mentioned were in the same place of the world map as usual, but the other nations were floating in the water, not in the same place as a regular map.
On top of both of the rings were waves of fire. The two rings represent a marriage of Northeast and Southeast Asia, and they spin together like the gears of a clock. The connecting point of the two rings is Taiwan, and it is the destiny of Taiwan to be the mediator or the one to marry Northeast and the Southeast Asia. Floating represents the nations currently finding their identity and receiving there desire to work together in unity as well as the learning process the are going through. The fire on top of the rings can either increase or decrease as the Brethren of the Kingdom come together to worship in Spirit and in Truth, and also acts as a wall against the fallen kingdom of darkness. This is all the beginning of the Northeast and Southeast Asia coming together to go back to Jerusalem.
As soon as we entered into the worship room we joined the other worshippers seamlessly. The atmosphere was already prepared and the presence of the Lord was there. Without missing a beat we worshipped in Spirit and in Truth right along with our brethren who were worshipping in Japanese, English and in Tongues. In a matter of 40 minutes the Lord revealed an incredible amount of information through visions and through hearing His voice.
The Lord showed Emmanuel a Cherubim that entered into the worship room who knelt down and started to play a flute. As he played the flute a soft wind in the Spirit started to blow within the room in a circular motion, a new melody and sound in the Spirit. As people hear the flute playing in the future in the Spirit they will begin seeing visions in the Spirit as John saw open visions of the heavens. Then the Holy Spirit said that this all represented a new time for open visions of Heaven and other visions to begin happening in that place. People will also begin to hear that heavenly melody from the flute of the Cherubim.
“All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God” (Revelation 7:11).
Then He took Emmanuel in the Spirit and showed him from above the East region of Tokyo. The east was covered with darkness and the Lord was saying that he wanted to transform that area as the people of Tokyo worship there. This is the first time we have been to Tokyo with no prior knowledge of any areas of the city.
During the same time of worship, the Lord took Ryan to the Ocean floor. The Lord took His Sword and thrust it all the way to the hilt into the ocean floor. As He did so, a shockwave erupted from the ocean floor. As soon as he saw the shockwave, he was immediately taken in the spirit to the shoreline on a beach somewhere in Japan. The waves were lapping up onto the shore lazily when suddenly a colossal wave hundreds of feet high rose up out of the Ocean and swept across Japan toward Korea. The wave was not a physical wave, but a wave in the Spirit representing a move of the Holy Spirit sweeping across the nation as never before. “For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea and its waves roar (the LORD of hosts is His name)” (Isaiah 51:15). After the vision of the wave the Lord showed Ryan an old gold and brown key in his hand. After seeing the key in his hand he saw the same key in the talons of an eagle flying over the length of a vast valley at the same height as the tops of the mountains on either side of the valley. As he asked the Holy Spirit what the key was for, the eagle became a dove and in an instant turned back into an eagle. Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy and has poured out His spirit upon us and we shall prophesy by His Spirit. “Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10)
As we worshipped and blew the shofar, in the Spirit Ryan also saw an angel of the Lord blowing a shofar on the top of mount Fuji. As he blew the Shofar, an army of angels on horseback came down from heaven and ran down the mountain on all sides, destroying the dark forces of the enemy as they went.
At the same time there were hundreds of eagles in the Spirit flying around the top of the mountain and as the Angel of the Lord blew the shofar the eagles set out in all directions from Mount Fuji.
The eagles represent the prophets of Japan that are being mobilized in the Spirit revealing God’s original plan for the nation and the strategy to take Japan back for the Lord. “You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself” (Exodus 19:4).
