The Priesthood Carrying the Glory of God

Tonight’s worship and prayer time was so intense! We started out with just worship led by our awesome worship leader, Harold Huang, at 7:30pm and then we started to engage into a time of deep intercession by 9pm. As we were pressing into the heart of God, I received a vision of four people holding the ark of the covenant in heaven. Afterward, the ark of the covenant turned into the throne of God where God was sitting upon it. I asked the Lord for revelation of the vision, and I felt that God was speaking to me that this move of the Glory of God would be ushered in by His saints who are in holy surrender that stand in the gap as a priesthood who will not take in any of the glory due to God for themselves (Isa. 42:8). They will always point back to Jesus Christ as the creator of all good things (Rev. 4:11), instead of flirting in the glory of God for themselves. They know that once they touch the glory of God for themselves, they would no longer be able to walk in the glory of their calling or their ministry before God would die off (1 Chron 13:10-11Ezek 44:10-28). These are the people that He will entrust to carry the strong presence of God. They walk in all lowliness and meekness before God. Before I prayed that God would raise up a pure people who knows how to walk in the power of God, Juan Arias received a vision confirming mine. He saw in a vision that we were cupping our hands out before God, and He was pouring out the water of His Spirit to refresh us with purity/holiness to help us walk in the power of His Spirit.

At some time during the prayer tonight, we were praying for the manifested presence of the glory of God and Juan Arias told us that he saw such a thick mist in the room. He thought he was going blind but after he rubbed his eyes several times, he saw the thick mist in reality. He believe that it was the weighty glory presence of God. Harold and I believe that Juan actually saw the manifested glory of God even though we had our eyes closed during that time because we felt such a strong move of God in the room. It was definitely so overwhelming and sweet! And yes, tonight’s prayer was just Harold, Juan, and I as there was prayer with The StudentCall in Los Angeles that went on from 2pm-10pm. I was praying earlier the day before whether or not I should go to the StudentCall the whole time or return back in time for our prayer that night, and I felt in my heart so much anticipation and excitement of how God would show up. I love going to really small prayer meetings with people who are filled with the zeal of the Lord because God always show up in such powerful ways.

Tonight was definitely a turning point in my life because some of us made a sober decision to surrender all of our lives to dedicate to see the Love of God impact Greater Long Beach Area, even if it means death/martyrdom or living to love the hell out of people. After the prayer, which ended around 11pm, we shared with each other what God is doing in our cities and in our hearts. I asked the other two if they made a decision to surrender all of themselves to God. Juan asked, “Don’t all of us do that?” I said that not everyone understand what it means or have the same definition. I told him that it means to surrender ourselves before God, dedicating ourselves to see the glory of God revealed in our cities even if it means martyrdom or living and loving God and others. We need to come to this place where we say, “I’m willing to die see these people step into their destinies of knowing God because I want them as my inheritance.” It’s this kind of vow that is compelled from Love that will shake our cities/nations. Before I shared all of that to Juan, he had already made the decision because God spoke to his heart that the only way that the glory of God was going to revealed was if we desire it more than Satan. It was definitely a sobering moment as we entered into that surrender that night. As God revealed to Harold, the only way to surrender (fear/doubt) and to live with fervent fire in our lives is to believe and know that God is more than enough. I love how God gave the confirmation to us through Juan, and he was receiving the same message from God even as the Lord has been speaking to us about this same matter last week.

Last week, as we were praying, God gave me a vision of Jesus praying in the heart of the Father. He was praying with great fervency, and He kept crying out that He wanted them (Greater Long Beach Area) as His inheritance. He would repeat this over and over again. I felt His heart for a moment as though He wanted to say, “I would lay it all down for them” even though He did on the cross already. He turned back to me and asked, “Are you willing to lay it down for them?” I realize that if we wanted to see the promises of God fulfilled, like the house to be 24/7 night and day prayer, this next step would be the acceptance of this great dying-to-yourself invitation. I heard from Lou Engle at TheCall 2010 that if you wanted the people to bleed, the leaders need to hemorrhage.

Lets pray and consider this invitation to surrender all before God with all soberness, counting the cost of it all and not being haste to do this in emotional excitement.

I pray that the zeal of the Lord for His house would consume you as it consumed the worshipper of God, David:

Psalm 69:”8 I have become a stranger to my brothers,

And an alien to my mother’s children;

 9 Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up….”

The Importance of Priorities & Values

So today, I just recently put together a list of things that I find are important priorities and values in my life. Yesterday, I shared at LoveHOP Church from Ephesians 5:15-21 and the phrase “redeeming the time” stuck out to me. I think it’s important to figure out what our priorities are in our lives and also our values that govern the priorities so we can live a meaningful life that will bring glory to God. This list actually comes from a book that God told me to read in 2008 called “God’s Generals” by Roberts Liardon, and I got reminded of it when I recently read “Moral Revolution” by Kris Vallotton. I’m placing this list on my wall to help me remember what’s important in life. I think everyone should have something like this where it’s easily seen every day that are from the Scriptures.

Personally, I really like Kris Vallotton’s list in his book that I got from the Jesus Culture’s conference called “Encounter” in Janurary 7&8 this year for free! I think it’s so worth it to buy the book (Moral Revolution)!  It’s a great book on how to live in purity in life as a youth.

Here are his virtues that govern his life:

  • I will serve God first and honor Him always, both in life and in death.
  • I will be honest, loyal, trustworthy, and a man of my word, no matter what the price.
  • I will keep my values, regardless of how much they cost me, and if I fail, I will be quick to repent.
  • I will treat all people with respect, whether they are friend or foe, because they were created in God’s image.
  • I will strive to love everyone, despite their opinions, attitudes, or persuasions and in spite of how they treat me.
  • I will be loyal to my wife, both in through and deed into eternity.
  • I will live to bless and empower the generations to come and leave an inheritance both in the Spirit and in the natural for three generations.
  • I will never work for money or sell myself and any price. I will only be motivated to do what I believe to be the right thing and receive my sustenance from God. I vow to be generous no matter what my circumstances may be.
  • I will live my life to bring out the best in people and to bring them into an encounter with the real and living God.

This is what Kris says about his list of virtues, that I think are also worthwile to note:

“Virtues help us to live from the inside out instead of from the outside in. No longer do I live by other people’s rules. Instead, I live by values that guide my attitudes, which, in turn, determine my choices. Choices dictate my behavior. My behavior becomes manifestations of my personhood, and my personhood leads me into my destiny.”

Also, here is a great list from Jonathan Edwards, a reformer from the First Great Awakening in the Church. Check it out here:


  • Love God with all of my heart, soul, mind, strength & love others as myself.
  • Carry the Kingdom of God as a princess and a bride of Christ with supernatural demonstration.
  • Be filled with the Holy Spirit continuously to carry out the calling of preparing the way of the Lord’s return (Isaiah 40)

How to walk in it personally:

  • Numbers 4:29-49
    • Speak forth identity by calling God’s children into their function in the Body of Christ for the work of ministry in His house of prayer.
  • Job 4:12-21
    • Remember that I can never be better than my God/Maker.
  • Proverbs 4:14-27
    • Do not enter the path of the wicked/evil
    • Give attention to Gods words and incline my ear to His sayings
      • Do not let them depart from my eyes.
      • Keep them in my heart.
      • Keeping this brings life & health to my flesh.
    • Keep my heart with all diligence
    • Put away deceitful mouth and perverse lips
    • Let my eyes look straight ahead (toward God)
      • Ponder the path (direction) of my feet and let all my ways be established (keep my words & be intentional with all that I do and wherever that I go in life)
      • Do not turn to the right or the left; remove foot from evil.
  • Hebrews 4:8-16
    • Enter the rest of the Lord always to receive the Word of God.
    • Come boldly to the throne of grace that I may find grace to help in time of need.

Personally, I got this list from a dream in 2009 when God spoke to me that He would give me a dream about the things that I should keep as a foundation in my life when I would go to Egypt. I think it’s good to get your personal list from the scriptures as well! Let me know what your list is if you started one after reading this or your values that you have been keeping.

Praying with Faith

On Saturday, 12/11/10, we had such an intense and yet also fun time of prayer! It was definitely very hard praying in the beginning on Saturday. It felt like it was dry and flat, which was very different from our previous Saturday where we had such a huge spiritual breakthrough for our house and for those who came! In times when the prayers feel dry like that, we need to hold onto the promise of God that if we seek Him wholeheartedly, we will find Him or encounter Him. My vision whenever I come in prayer is to encounter God personally and believing in this promise for my community that I am praying for as well. A lot of times, I ask God how He wants to encounter us individually/corporately and God’s vision becomes the fuel for which I engage in prayer. Knowing God’s vision or His way leads us to knowing Him (Exodus 33:13). 

When I looked at the spiritual state of that Saturday night, I believe that it was an opportunity for us to strengthen our faithfulness and perseverance in the spirit. I knew that God is with us even when it feels dry or when it feels like the whole room is shaking where we fall prostrate on the floor because of the manifest presence of God. As we continued to press in the spirit with expectation, we can feel the whole spiritual atmosphere of the room changing. It was dry for the past one and a half hour and then all of a sudden, there was shift in our hearts because the Holy Spirit was there to help us pray. I always get excited when the Holy Spirit manifest Himself, because we began to pray with convictions and also great fervency. Praying with the Holy Spirit is key to seeing personal and corporate revival, reformation, and transformation.

When we pray, we don’t pray with the mindset thinking that God won’t show up. This kind of faithlessness produce very little fruit and without faith, we cannot please God. We also don’t pray thinking that if we cry out louder, that God will finally listen. We know that God listens to His own elect, and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Luke 18:7).

Painful & Personal- Jacob Transition

Lately, I’ve been talking to some of my friends in the ministry and I’ve found that the majority of us are feeling extremely stretched. I believe the reason why we’re going through this is because God is taking many of us through a time of a “Jacob transition.”

In Gen.32:24, Jacob finally struggled with God to receive a new thing rather than with men (ex: Jacob stealing birthright from Esau- Gen 25). We need to realize that this is not a struggle that we are having with the enemy/people but this struggle is between us and God. God wants to lead us BACK to that breakthrough place at Bethel with the altar (Genesis 35:1; “Bethel” means house of God and gate of heaven in Gen 28:17) of pure worship (altar represents pure worship from acts of RADICAL obedience, ex: gen 22:9 with sacrificing Isaac, gen 8:20 where Noah sacrificed his reputation to build the ark…etc.) where He can take more possession of or INHABIT our hearts that it would also bless others as well. To get to that Bethel with the altar, there WILL be sacrifice and pain. But our breakthrough means others’ breakthrough.

To get to Bethel where the altar is established in our lives for God’s glory (Gen 35:1 has an altar; Gen 28:17-18 does not have altar but a pillar built with oil), it gets very personal and painful where God is even willing to move the socket of our hip out of place! He really doesn’t care about our reputation, money, ministry or whatever above our relationship with Him and our hearts’ posture. He is a jealous God (Ex 34:14), and He will consume/burn all things that gets in the way of love. If there is anything that He sees that is hindering love, He will destroy it and castrate that part to set us apart for a pure and spotless Bride.

Jacob was a proud man and self-sufficient until he felt he was cornered all around. He would use his old ways to get what he wanted but God had to remove the pride from his heart so he can receive the new name, Israel (which means God prevails/contended), and become a blessing to multitudes.

God is taking us to a new season where He wants to give us a new wineskin and in order to do that, He needs to remove the pride in our hearts. Jacob prevailed because he persevered through the “wrestling” which actually means to make small or bedust in Hebrew (‘abaq- Gen 32:28). We need to come before Him in humility and persevere or struggle with God through this season (the word “struggle” in Gen 32:27 in NKJV is “sarah” which means to persevere or to contend). We need to get smaller than the dust so God can bring glory through our lives.

The way we can go through this season is to contend with God through prayer to remove the pride from our hearts and come before Him in meekness to show us the new way.

I just want to encourage everyone out there who feel they’re going through this to completely trust in God even if it seems you’re about to be dead tight and cornered. Do not move from your place when you have not received the new instructions where to go (looking for a job, going to a new church, taking a jump in/out of the ministry…etc). When we move without God’s timing or His instructions, we become disobedient.Continue to stay the course where you know God has called you and continue to be faithful to the tasks even if you’re confused. If we move without Him, we end up not taking the best that He has for us. Trust in Him that He will make ALL THINGS work out for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28) and obey Him (John 14:15).

How To Study Song of Songs and the Book of Revelation

There are two ways in how to study these two books:

  • As is…
  • Allegorically or symbolically

The book of Revelation and Song of Songs need to be studied as they are written, and they are also meant to be understood allegorically for the purpose of knowing who God is. The reason this is done is that we may engage with the Holy Spirit, and it would be revealed to those who love the Lord. (We need to study it in its fullness by also understanding the allegorical view, especially in our culture where that type of thinking pattern is not as popular as the Hebraic mindset, more common for the Jews. It is impossible for those who are not saved to understand the Scriptures and interpret it correctly without a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. Those who are saved and do not engage with the Holy Spirit also will have a difficult time interpreting things correctly.) Good thing the Scriptures has a huge database of its own definitions of different allegories and symbols defined by different authors in the whole Bible. Because of that, the majority of visions, dreams, and symbols can be understood if we are well versed in the Bible or if we know how to research it up with a software that does word-search as we engage with the Holy Spirit. As we go through these studies, our main focus is to retain God that it would produce a lifestyle of worship, rather than just knowledge.

The Holy Spirit showed me how to study these books before and how to study other Scriptures, and the focus is on using one Scripture to compare it with another one. When we do this, we are comparing light with light or the spiritual with spiritual (1 Cor. 2:13) because the Scriptures was written by people who were inspired by His leading (2 Tim. 3:16). Before I share some practical in how to interpret these Scriptures, you have to be careful to not rely on your own understanding or to become presumptuous. Even the most educated in the Scriptures missed God in their studies because of their pride (Matthew 22:23-29; 2 Peter 3:16) or ignorance (Luke 24:45). We need to ask the Holy Spirit to teach us and to guide us throughout the readings and the study of these amazing books. The purpose of the reading of these books and other books is to learn about who God is in our efforts of seeking Him wholeheartedly.

As we are going through these books, we need to ask, “How is God revealing Himself in these Scriptures?” When you see how God is revealing Himself in the Scriptures through the Holy Spirit, just begin diving into worship of God and go crazy after Him. Take an intended time to worship Him and be in awe of God. Take time to go, “Woa,” “Wow,” “You’re amazing,” and “Glory” or “Holy.” Those are the common words I like to use when I am in awe, and I’m sure you can be creative with certain explosions of worship from dancing to joyful noises. As we are going through these Scriptures and any other book, there should be an explosion of worship.

If we are offended or feel angry at God, stop and take time to ask the Holy Spirit to teach us and expose any areas of lies that we believe that hinders the knowledge of God. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring down the stronghold of any ideologies or arguments in our minds that go against the knowledge of God. 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 states, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,  casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,  and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” As we engage with the Holy Spirit in reading these Scriptures through the weapon of prayer, we will begin to understand His great love for us and to fall in Love with God authentically, producing an awesome time of worship.

It is so crucial to engage with the Holy Spirit as we are reading the Scriptures because the Holy Spirit will begin transforming our lives by revealing the Truth, Jesus Christ, to us rather than just getting knowledge or retaining information. Romans 1:28 states, “And even as they did not like to retain God n their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting…” If we are reading the Scriptures for the sake of knowledge, we will fall into sin and compromise or continue in it because faith will not be produced. If we are reading the Scripture for the sake of seeking God or retaining God, the Lord will give us the minds of Christ and our faith will be encouraged (1 Cor. 2:16). The Scripture also states, “Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God” (1 Cor. 2:11-12; NKJV).

The type of thinking pattern that we need to actually understand the Scriptures more fully is similar to the way the Hebrews think, especially books before Matthew and things that have parables, visions, and dreams. Allegorical interpretation is not weird or “reading into it too much” when done correctly because it is also revealed to us in the Scriptures that several authors of the books of the Bible think this way as well.

For example, Paul stated in 1 Corinthian 10:4, “For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” Paul was referencing to that time when the Israelites drank from the water that actually proceeded from a rock that Moses struck twice, instead of speaking to the rock (Numbers 20:8-11). The way to interpret this passage if we lived in Paul’s time when Paul did not write the Corinthians book yet, or to be in Paul’s mindset, is to see it from the perspective that Paul actually had a revelation that God is the Rock. Because of that revelation, Paul was also able to connect to the passages from Numbers 20:8-11. Since many allegories in the Bible have already been defined for us already like in 1 Corinthians 10:4, we can simply just do research or do parallel verses with one another. It is helpful to understand that Paul thinks that way, and it is more helpful for us personally when we go back to Numbers 20 and study it from the perspective that God is the Rock. We are able to receive more understanding of the ways of God. Therefore, you can read this and ask, “If God is the Rock, then why did Moses strike the rock?” What does it mean to strike the rock, since Paul referenced that passage to an allegory of Jesus Christ? If we read it allegorically, we may be able to understand the depth of why God did not allow Moses to take the people into the promise land.

“Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.’So Moses took the rod from before theLordas He commanded him. 

And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?”Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.” (Numbers 20:8-11; NKJV)

When we study that same passage from an allegorical perspective, we begin understanding that Moses got offended and angry at God, not just people. He struck God, not just a rock. He took it personally, and their responses to God caused him to ultimately be offended at God. He struck the rock or He hurt God when Moses responded poorly toward the people of God by making this process to be about him and the people, without the perspective that it was God who saved them. In one way, Moses took the glory of God away from Him when he made it to be about his work and gifting rather than something, like salvation, belonging to the Lord (Numbers 20:12). When we read it that way in the same consistent manner, we begin to be shocked that God actually was wounded because of Moses’ response and the way that he badly portrayed God. To verify that this ideology is true, we can see that God has been wounded in other times as well in other Scriptures because of our sins (Isa. 53:5). (This is an example of comparing light with light or the spiritual with spiritual.) As a leader, Moses was suppose to raise His hands up with the rod speaking to the rock as a symbol of intercession or speaking on behalf of the people to the Lord as he has seen before in impossible times rather than having a prideful perspective that he was the one who saves. He lost sight of God, and instead of looking at God, he looked at the people’s behavior and that produced great anger and pride in his heart. (Moses was a person of righteousness, and God gave the Law to him. When we live according to the Law without gazing upon God, it will produce violence, anger, and many more things.) Because of that prideful perspective in Moses’ heart, he would not be able to go to the promise land, leading people to the ultimate purpose of worshipping God in the promise land. As a leader, Moses was responsible to the measure of the revelation of God that was given to him, and he responded in doubt or sin even when he knew God intimately as a friend. “So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle” (Exodus 33:11; NKJV). This lifestyle in Joshua was already engrained in him before he was set before the people as a leader after Moses. The Lord afterward raised up Joshua to lead the people because Joshua was a man after God’s heart learning of the heart of the priestly way before he was even known, which was through intercession and the lifting up the hands by never departing from the tabernacle, which was the part that Moses failed to exemplify of God (Exodus 33:11; Psalm 141:2).

By the way, did you just notice what I did with that same passage with Exodus 33:11?

“So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.(Exodus 33:11; NKJV)

(I don’t know what he actually did in the tabernacle but we can certainly know that he learned of the ways of the priest, and somewhere in that process, he received the Spirit of God in him as stated in Numbers 27:18.)

When we research up the word “tabernacle” or understand the purpose of the tabernacle and what it represents after Christ’s ascension, we begin to understand that the priestly ministry was never removed even after Christ’s ascension among the people. Psalm 141:2 compared the evening sacrifice and the incense done in the tabernacle as the lifting up of the hands and the prayers of the saints. Therefore, whenever we read about the lifting up of the hands, we can equate that symbolically, most of the time, as our sacrifice of worship before God through our physical posture. There are times that symbolism would not be true, and because of that, we need to read the context.

When you begin reading the Bible like this, it will begin to be very rewarding. It is generally difficult for someone to read the Bible like this if they don’t know a lot of Scriptures well or willing to go through the time to find all of the definitions of the different symbols used in the Bible. This is especially true if we are not saved and not skilled in the word of righteousness (Hebrews 5:13-14). The writer of Hebrews rebuked the people for not being able to understand the Scriptures and draw the connection of Christ to the things written in the past because they were unskilled in the word of righteousness when it was normal for their thinking pattern. (This thinking pattern will take time to develop especially in our Greek culture in US and that is okay.) When we live in darkness, we will not be able to understand the Scriptures as stated by Jesus, To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, so that ‘Seeing they may see and not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand; lest they should turn, andtheirsins be forgiven them.” We have been forgiven by God as believers, and it is possible to understand parables, visions, poetic language like Song of Songs, and dreams which are more popular among the Hebrew thinkers. Thank God for the ministry of the Holy Spirit that does this amazing transformation in our lives as He reveals Christ to us, that we may know Him. So, remember to engage with the Holy Spirit when you read this even in the context when I show you how to do it practically, and worship God when He reveals who He is to you to retain God, not just knowledge.

Building the Ark

As God is directing us at LoveHOP to build up a 24hours/7days-a-week house of prayer in Signal Hill, we are of course also facing challenges and discouragements. We sometimes get fixed upon the numbers that we have or the ill-spoken words that people say but God has reminded me a story that all of us are familiar with.

It is the story of Noah. In his time, God wanted to destroy man because of the wickedness and every intent of the thoughts of his heart was ALWAYS evil (Gen 6:5). God said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth and beast…for I am sorry that I have made them.” BUT, there was one man who found grace in the eyes of the Lord in his time and that was Noah (Gen 6:8).The thing that set him apart was, “Noah walked with God,” and “Noah was a just man, perfect in his generation” (verse 9). Even in God’s judgment, He had a plan of mercy for man, and it was going to be done through this one man who had set himself in righteousness before the Lord in his generation (Gen 7:1).

Noah had, from what we know, only seven people with him: the three sons, the sons’ wives, and his wife (Gen 6:18). At LoveHOP, we sometimes forget and look at the numbers, but the numbers really did not stop Noah from building the ark. It was simply his radical obedience to God’s directions, and I believe Noah envisioned the generations of descendants that would be saved after him. He was not focused on the now but the future glory or else, if I was him, I would just build an ark for myself and my family. That would really have saved A LOT of work but Noah did not slack off and obeyed God in every details. It was Noah’s obedience that gave way for our Deliverer as God was going to use Noah as a vessel for deliverance for his people.

At LoveHOP, though our numbers may be small right now, we will bring forth GENERATIONS of radical lovers, equipped and living in Love, Word, and Power.  We will prepare the way for our Deliverer and King as a people who call God as our inheritance and our possession. We do not despise the “small beginning.”

Noah worked day in and day out to build this HUGE ark of God’s covenant that would be used to save him and his family (Gen 6:18 “But I will establish my covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark.”) I can imagine people scoffing and mocking, “Why are you building this ark? You’re wasting your time, your money, your life for a rain that is not coming. This is not God’s plan.” But he did waste it all. Noah built the ark, and “then Noah built an altar to the Lord… and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma.”).

People right now can say, “Why are you building this house of prayer? You are wasting your time/money/life. I do not even see anyone else praying, so much for a prayer movement.” But it is not a waste because we are setting all of them out –our time, our money, our life, our prayers, our lives – as burnt sacrifices before the Lord. They will be unto the Lord a soothing aroma, just like when God smelled Noah’s burnt offerings. We will be faithful, day in and day out, to the call of God for the spiritual generations that we will not see. We will see our Deliverer and our “Ark of Covenant” come to establish His Kingship and government as we enter our “promised land” (New Jerusalem) after His second coming.



Several of us did a mission trip in Egypt last year in 2009, and God was giving us a word that the youth group that we were ministering to would have a house of prayer. Afterward, Seyi & Ronke Olagunju and Tammy Dao did a training for a house of prayer because one of their leaders, not knowing the prophecy, wanted to basically have it established that same day the prophecy was released. We continued to keep in contact with the leaders and our friends said that they have a house of prayer that have been established for at least four months now in Alexandria, Egypt. Their name is “Monument for the Lord,” based upon Isaiah 19:19. The leaders got a word that their house of prayer was like an ark the day this note was written and thanked God that it totally confirmed what God is doing in their midst. Check out for their pictures at LoveHOP and lets continue to pray for them!
