Time does fly so fast when one is busy. This one month has passed so fast as we were busy with all the various renovations for the church and childcare in Sydney, organizing various ministry areas in Singapore, a quick trip to and fro between Singapore and Sydney, guest speakers coming to and fro, some online students coming by to visit in Singapore and Sydney.
Many have asked me as to what is happening in world events recently and, as shared in Sydney last week, it is all tied to Isaiah 19. We see the first part of the chapter coming to pass before the other parts of the chapter take place. Note that the region of Assyria in the Bible and Egypt includes a larger area than modern Syria or Egypt. Things will get worse there first before it gets better and the prophecy of a highway going through Assyria, Egypt and Israel will grow closer to its fulfilment. As shared in Sydney, the fulfilment of this can take place in the Jewish dispensation or towards the close of the Gentile dispensation.
Our prayers and comfort in the Holy Spirit on all who are in Christchurch and New Zealand as a whole. We thank God that our friends and partners there are alright and we pray for those who have lost loved ones there. In God’s plan, the last wave of revival (as per Smith Wigglesworth prophecy) is in Australia-New Zealand. Now is the time for Asia, which is why we are building the work of the ministry here in Asia.
The destiny of God prepared before the foundation of the earth will be fulfilled through His church and through each life. We have entered into a period of prosperity despite the major events happening this year (2011 – a year of conflict, read earlier blog). What God has determined will surely come to pass. Although free choice of humans seem to be helter-skelter against the Will of God at times, God will still fulfill His plans and destinies on all those who love Him. All things indeed work together for good to those who love God and who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). It requires us to understand two things: that we need to exercise a deep and undivided love for God through all situations and circumstances and secondly, we need to understand and know what God has called us to do and stick with it steadfastly against all odds. In this coming revival, God will manifest His grace and power in ways that ear has not heard, nor eye seen, nor entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2). The Lord bless and keep each of you in His grace and love, Ps Peter
