|English||East Coast Homecoming Gathering at Egg Harbor, New Jersey|
This East Coast Egg Harbor Gathering (12/7-8) in NJ is happening at the right time, right place and with the right people specially arranged by God.
1. Right time:
This Gathering falls on Hanukkah, the Jewish feast (12/2-9), this year. We didn’t realize that at the beginning until much later. Hanukkah celebrates God’s intervention, supernatual provision and the turning of defeat into victory.
2. Right place:
The meeting place will be in Egg Harbor, NJ. Right after the Montreal Gathering 6/29-7/4,2017, God asked us to host an East Coast Gathering in Egg Harbor, NJ. We said, Montreal was like the womb, the Gathering In Egg Harbor on 7/15 would be like the “Egg” that was birthed, it was also like a “Harbor” where the boat was set to sail.
When we chose this place to gather, we were not aware of (1) The wonderful revival God had done in this place. In fact nearby Vineland is the original place of the holiness revival 150 years ago (1867) which later moved westward and eventually ignited the famous Asuza revival of the west coast. (2) That this is the place where William Penn, the first governor of Pennsylvania, had signed a treaty with the First Nation people in America. (3) God used a group of Chinese from China who couldn’t make it to Montreal and ended up coming to the United States to open the first page for the Chinese on the East Coast to care about the First Nation of USA. (4) In addition, next year, 2019, will be the 400th year of African slavery in this land. In 1860 along the underground railroad routs from NY to Delaware, Egg Harbor happened to be one of the areas where these escaping slavery had a direct path to go into Pennsylvania, in which slavery had been outlawed.
What is so touching for us is that many First Nation people have already said that they wish to attend this Gathering. The revival in America must start with the First Nation, otherwise the curses of the land cannot be removed. The family on the East Coast is facing a huge challenge, but we believe that in this Hanukkah season God has a plan. As long as the family walk in faith and obedience, and participate, we believe God will bring about a great breakthrough just like He did in the West Coast and IHOPKC which were beyond what we could imagine.
Thinking back to April of this year, when a few Chinese families in North America went to Papa Gideon Chiu’s home in Vancouver in spite of the winter storm, we came together to discern what God has for North America. By God’s grace we responded believing God will use us to have a part in changing this beautiful land of America. We decided, like in the chamber of prophet Elisha, to strike the ground with the arrows many times. It is also like having three fingers, the west, the south and the east, to hold this land of America. We had the gatherings in the West and In the middle and now what we need is the East. Do pray about it, ask if God wants you to participate to accomplish the vision we received in the beginning of the year. We need God, we also need the family!
God is on the move, it is the right time, right place and we have the right people. May the Lord personally touch your heart and speak to you. We are looking forward to seeing you there !
PS, because we have quite a number of First Nation coming from all over USA, they desperately need our financial support, it is not a small amount, if God led you to help, please send the check address to Kingdom Alive, and send to 12 Lilac Lane, Someret, NJ 08873. Thank you
這次聚會的地點稱為Egg Harbor, 其實2017年在Montreal舉行的One合一回家聚集之後，神就要美国東岸華人有聚集。Montreal 如同子宮，多倫多如同產道，那年7月15號在Egg Harbor所舉行的聚會，就好像是生出來的蛋(Egg)，也好像是航行出去的船(Harbor)。
我們憑信心選擇這個地方的時候 根本不知道 (1) 神曾經在這個地方做了非常奇妙的復興。我們壓根不知道Egg Harbor這個地區不遠处Vineland， 竟然是150年前(1867)東岸聖潔聚會的起源地。之後復興輾轉向西傳，结果成為100年前(1906)五旬節運動，阿蘇撒街大復興的火種。 (2) 那时我们也不清楚這個地區是賓州第一任州長William Penn 和美國原住民接觸並簽約地方。(3) 我們更不能想像，因為無法前往加拿大，卻能來美國的中國家人，竟然在這個聚會中，翻開了美東華人關心美國原住民的首頁。(4) 此外，明年2019年，將是美國將奴隸從非洲帶來的400週年，1860年Egg Harbor地區，正是當時黑奴從紐約到Delaware的秘密鐵路通道逃亡出來的藏身之地，然後再逃往宾州，因那时宾州的奴隶制度已经废除。
又及，因為有好幾位原住民要從各地前來，他們極需要我們在財務上幫助，這筆數字不小，若有感動，請寫支票給: Kingdom Alive，地址寄: 12 Lilac Lane，Somerset，NJ 08873。謝謝!
