Pastor and Sister Lip Yee, I really want to encourage you in what I believe God is stirring up in you and in the midst of the New Life churches. One of the words that came to me this morning and I’ll share a bit around that, i.e. out of Isaiah 54. There are many barren that are out there but the barren, they’re going to be healed and they are going to be the family of God. I believe there is a family anointing over your churches to see families coming to the knowledge of God. They might come in ones and twos but they come as families. So I see an increase of new life in families if I may use that term. I believe in Isaiah 54, the Lord encourages us to extend our tent pegs, to enlarge our territory. Might be that territory that God called you to is not only your city but to the nations of the world. You know, when the Father spoke to Jesus, He said: “I’ve given the nations as your inheritance, the ends of the earth as your possession”. That’s a powerful thing that is happening for you. I believe you’re going to raise up leaders, they’re going to be very significant in your movement. You’re going to see them rise up into nations and take back the promises that God has given to the church. So, I want to say to you Pr Lawrence, I really see the apostolic call on you to plant and to establish.
You see when God spoke to Jeremiah, He said see this day I have set you in place, he said there is a setting that is taking place, there is extension and growth taking place in the church and beyond. I want to speak to that because God is working within your heart to give you favor in the city. I think KL is real key city to the nation and because you are planted here by strategic and divine purposes of God, He will use you to speak to the leadership of the city and I believe the churches’ role is to influence cities. We’ve been happy with the community in the past. That’s good but I believe there is a bigger picture coming into the place of our vision and our mission in God and that is cities. God has positioned you here to speak to the leadership in the city. I want to encourage you to look for that opportunity because I really believe God will open the door to change your city because the Christ in you the hope of glory. My message this morning about the idols of a city that God turns around and we shared a bit about that this morning through your scriptures that all the “…ites” come under the authority of God because we stood up. I want to encourage you the strategic abilities upon you to bring these things into place. God will use your voice, He will use your church to be a trumpeter for the city and the nation. When these things come you will know that the Lord is with you. You read something earlier on that God with us, He has given us the land. I really want to encourage you that that is part of your mission statement. God has given you the land, God has given you the city. When Joshua went out to take the first city, God didn’t give him more weapons, more people. God gave him strategic ability to understand the spiritual plan that God had and he followed those plans and he blew the trumpet and the city came to the Lord and the people shouted together. There is something about the unity of the spirit that is upon you, upon your church and upon your people. When there is unity there is agreement. When there is agreement there is power in agreement. I believe God has called your leadership into agreement for the purposes that He has for this end-time church revival. So I want you to encourage you that what you are pursuing is God given and God’s timing on your life and on your church for you both and for your leaders. There is going to be some mighty leaders that are going to join you. There were men that joined with David they were unusual men but mighty men of valor, so raise them up pastor. They’re going to walk with you and they’re going to take the land. So I bless your ministry, I bless what God is doing here. I will be praying in New Zealand for the performance of God’s promise upon you and upon your churches. In the nations of the world that God will multiply through you quickly in the things that He is doing in the end time harvest. Bless you in God and it is an honour to be with you.
Amen thank you.
