LOVE restores what HATE destroyed.
Friend, 12 years ago unfathomable violence swept over Ambon, NOW is God’s time for a MIGHTY HARVEST!
Every picture in this letter has a story that grips our hearts.
Some of the pictures I have are so gruesome I could not include them; Young men wielding a machete, holding heads that had been severed from the body in front of hundreds of onlookers with cold, hate-filled eyes. When the devil has his way evil prevails, but when Jesus is lifted up He draws all people to Himself, and that’s what is about to happen.
The heartbreaking violence that rocked the Indonesian island of Ambon 12 years ago caused incredible suffering. Hundreds died and thousands were left homeless. One newspaper wrote “Clashes spread rapidly… as rival gangs armed with machetes and knives roamed the streets, established road blocks, stopped and searched vehicles and set fire to vehicles and buildings.”
The journalist continues, “Christian churches and mosques were burned down along with hundreds of houses, banks, shop stalls, vehicles and buildings. Around 20,000 people were forced to flee their homes.” Since this terrible situation, fear has prevailed and believers have prayed for the right time.
Friend, that time is now!
The governor, the police and the military have all come on board. The door is wide open. The stadium has already been rented and advertising is about to start in a few days.
Only God can open a door like this. I’m reminded of the scripture “For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries” (1 Cor 16:9). The truth is that when God opens a door it doesn’t matter how many adversaries stand in the way, because no man can shut it.
Who but the Holy Spirit could orchestrate something like this? Can you imagine? It seemed that there would never again be the opportunity for a large Gospel campaign, but now the door is open. It is thrilling but we must also understand the responsibility of this unique historical opportunity.
Much is at stake! Great preachers of past centuries only dreamed of the day when opportunities would come to reach entire regions. And now we are privileged to have these open doors. The enemy of our souls is not pleased and he does what he can to deceive people. I need your prayers.
Great things are ahead in 2012 and beyond. God is moving in an unprecedented way on my heart concerning the doors He’s opening around the world. In a couple of months I hope to share with you in more details the plan the Lord has put in my heart to reach the world’s largest unreached megacities.
Will you pray for the upcoming Ambon Campaign and the great plans God is birthing in our spirit?
Jesus said, “I say unto you that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repents” (Luke 15:7). In my spirit I can imagine the joyful shouts of praise that fill the throne room of God as multitudes of souls are reached in Ambon, Indonesia.
