Remember, O Lord, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell.
"Tear it down," they cried.
"tear it down to its foundations!"
Psalm 137: 7
What I received from Jesus today is: AMiAs survives tsunami revealed!!!
The psalmist wanted to express how painful the Israelites were when they lost their nation and being captured and then tortured by the Babylonians. How could this happen? God's people being abandoned by God! Why the Devil had a chance to tear down everything? Well, it was because they abandoned God first and God already gave them enough warning!
Well, the good news I received from the Lord is the title today: AMiAs survives tsunami revealed!
Michelle and I arrived in Houston, Texas for the annual AMiAs Winter Conference. During the Network Leaders lunch I asked Archbishop Moses Tay a question of what he thought should be the best way to face with what he called "spiritual tsunami" of the present AMiA crisis. He said, "More closer to Jesus!" Yes, whenever a major attack comes to a nation the key of whether to break or to strengthen the nation is always a major learning point for historians. And to "spiritual attack or even spiritual tsunami" , the answer is to be more closer to Jesus. At the end of the meeting, Archbishop Kolini told me, "Silas, this will lead AMiAs to a new level!" Indeed, we have been raised by the Lord to a new level through this crisis!
Tonight's opening service of this year's Winter Conference demonstrated the best of AMiAs - the same spirit of Christlikeness in everybody's eyes. It's not difficult to discern this spirit of unity especially in the midst of a spiritual tsunami. I am so joyful to learn from the Lord that we survive this spiritual tsunami which try to pull down AMiAs in one strike! The key word I received so clearly today is just one word - REVEAL.
More truth will be revealed by the Lord in the coming few weeks or months of what really happened and is happening. The blindness of people will be no more and characters will be revealed. This spiritual tsunami reveals to me three words - Integrity, Brotherhood, Leadership. Integrity, Brotherhood and Leadership need to be tested. We are tested severely indeed and we passed the test! I applauded to my seven brother bishops superb integrity and leadership in the midst of this big spiritual warfare. This challenge pulls all of us together to taste the true spirit of Brotherhood as never before. Praise the Lord for giving us this opportunity to be tested!
AMiAs survives tsunami revealed, indeed!!!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be more closer to you so that we not only survive in this spiritual tsunami but to thrive through this rarely seen crisis in the making of church history. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
