This Thursday, 5 May at 8:30 PM we will hold a special prayer meeting for the Great Commission/Ascension Thursday. The meeting will take place upstairs in the sanctuary right after the Thursday evening class that meets in the basement. Please planning on joining us for this special prayer meeting at 8:30 PM.
Below is a letter from Tom Hess that explains in detail why we are coming together to pray on this special day. Please read it over and come ready to pray. I hope to see you this Thursday evening at 8:30 PM.
God bless and Shalom!
Dear Way of the Lord,
Join All Nations Great Commission/Ascension day by convening a meeting in your nation on May 5th 2016 (Acts 1:8) to pray for the fullness of Great Commission to be fulfilled in your nation back to Jerusalem and also consider bringing a group to All Nations Convocation Jerusalem October 2nd to 16th and join with all nations on October 10th to light the torches an pray for the fullness of the Gentiles to come in and for Jerusalem's salvation to be like a blazing torch.
We are believing God that before Jesus comes back, another one billion souls could be saved from every tribe, tongue, people and nation (Rev. 5:9-10) that all unreached people groups will be adequately reached preparing the way for the coming of the King of Glory.
This year again on May 5th, the Kings' Great Commission/Ascension day (the day the Acts 1:8 Great Commission was given just before the ascension, in the area where Jerusalem House of Prayer is located on the Mount of Olives), we encourage all nations to call the pastors, worshippers, intercessors, Watchmen, evangelists and church planters together and light torches on Great Commission/Ascension day to rejoice as all heaven rejoices over one soul being saved, for all those that came into the Kingdom in the past year and light a torch believing for the fullness of breakthrough for salvation over the next year.
Praying for more Labourers for the Harvest. In Matthew 9:37-38, Jesus says "The Harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few". Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into the harvest field to reap the fullness of the harvest in every nation. We also want to dedicate ourselves in a fresh way this year and for God to anoint all that are gathering, so that a great harvest, the fullness of the harvest will be reaped in the coming year.
Praying for the fullness of the Gentiles in your nation to receive the Lord and for the Salvation of Israel. We know that God wants the fullness of the gentiles into the Kingdom of God. It says this in Romans 11:25-26, but it also says the fullness of Israel will be saved in Romans 11:11-12.
So we encourage you to join together on this day, praying for the fullness of the salvation of the Gentiles and that God has purposed to bring into the Kingdom in your nation and also for the fullness of salvation of Israel. 120 Leaders, both Jewish and Arab, will be gathering on Mount Olives to pray, joining with you in your nation.
Reaching every nation, tribe, people and language. It says in Revelation 11:9 "After this, I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the One and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands".
We are believing God will bring everyone from every tribe, tongue, people and nation into the Kingdom of God. Stand together for the unreached people groups in your nation, places in your nations that have no established local churches. Believe God in the coming year that there will be churches established in every region and language. God is the God of the Breakthrough!
Multiplication of Disciples and Congregations. It says in Matthew 28:19 "Therefore, go and make disciples (not converts) of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit".
We believe God for a great multiplication of disciplines and church planting movements throughout your nation and that the fullness of the gentiles will come in.
We believe when these five mandates are fulfilled, connected with the Great Commission in Acts 1:8, we will see Jesus coming back. He will put His feet on the Mount of Olives. It says He must remain in Heaven until the restoration of the all things.
We live in the days of All Things. May we fulfil His mandates, preparing the way for the coming of the King of Glory. Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King.
We ask leaders from every nation to join us for the All Nations Convocation and Watchmen's tour of Israel October 2nd and 16th, with their delegates including growing numbers from the Joshua generation. On October 10th, during the All Nations Convocation and Watchmen's tour, all nations will pray at the Southern Steps of the Temple Mount for the fullness of the Gentiles from all nations to come into the Kingdom (Olive tree, Romans 11:25) and for Jerusalem's Salvation to be like a blazing torch (Isaiah 62:1). We will again light the 12 torches from each gateway at the place of His throne and the Soles of the Messiah's feet forever (Eze 43:7) from Israel as a prophetic act, symbolic of the glory of God coming to your nation and from the ends of the earth back to Jerusalem.
We hope you can confirm joining us and calling your nations to join us on May 5th, and if possible bring a delegation of All Nations Convocation and Watchmen's tour of Israel October 2nd to 16th, and to join us to light the torches on 10th October at the Southern Steps of the Temple Mount.
Shalom in the Messiah's Love and Joy.
