We were again blessed at the recent Melbourne FGBA Summit from the teaching and testimonies of brothers, Khoo Oon Theme and Georgie Lee from Singapore as they have continued to sow into the FGB Australia. What I believe is important now is what we do with the knowledge , revelation, understanding and commissioning we received at the Summit.
During the last 25 years I have attended many FGB conferences and have been encouraged and have grown spiritually from each one and have returned home to put into practice what we had learned. Invariably there were few victories but there was also lack of support, many defeats, wrong paths, false starts and disappointments, and I suspect that this may have been the same for many of us.
I came away from this latest conference with an expectation and belief that our vision for the transformation of this nation is indeed possible and that the vision we have been given personally or through Demos has not died. I came home with a belief that there will be revival in this nation and that the many "son's (and daughters) of Issachar" throughout Australia who understand the times in which we live and are being positioned by God for revival. I came home with an understanding that the Kingdom and revival is multi-generational. I came home with a belief that the Light of Christ will overcome the creeping confusion and darkness.
Although the FGBA are now a remnant compared to 30 years ago I am convinced that God will have His victory through one or a through a thousand. We have each been called and instructed to know our specific roles and do our part. We are to encourage the body of Christ, we are to make disciples, we are to father the next generation, and we are to preach the good news to the poor.
We have been mandated to heal the broken hearted, to heal the sick, to proclaim liberty to the captives and an opening of the prison to those who are bound. We are to understand who we are in God and the power of Christ who lives and dwells with us and within us.
We have been blessed with great knowledge and great teaching. We are now called to walk out what God has revealed to us over many years, not wavering in our faith. I believe it is now time for our hope to become expectation, our expectation to become faith, and our faith to become action. As a brother prophesied at the Summit: "The fields are white unto harvest - Now!" We were also told: "Maybe we were born for such a time as this."
We have been reminded that this is not about us. It is about the big picture. It is about the Kingdom. God's Kingdom coming to earth as in Heaven. God's Kingdom coming into our families, our cities, our states, our Nation, and the whole World.
Go boldly brothers and sisters. Pray for revival, pray for discernment, pray for courage, pray for opportunities, pray for an open doors, pray. Matt 10: 7-8, Luke 10: 8-9, Mark 16: 15-18
