Reveal 19:以實瑪利後裔和以撒後裔的命定

 

多年以前,我與主有一次非常特別的相遇。那是凌晨一點,即使在與妻子和七個孩子的活動中累了一天,我的靈卻被攪動,被催逼要禱告。我立刻被捲入了一場與神的相遇,一種難以言喻渴望新容量的啟示被釋放到教會的負擔淹沒我,使我開始淚流滿面。當這個經驗持續,我聽到靈裡的一個聲音引導我去讀但以理書10~12章。這段經文說到但以理尋求主,要領受關乎他們百姓命運的更大啟示。最終,在21天的地上禁食和屬天爭戰之後,一位天使顯現,與他分享一個詳細但還未發生、關乎未來的異象。但以理說:

 

我聽見這話,卻不明白,就說:「我主啊,這些事的結局是怎樣呢?」

他說:「但以理啊,你只管去;因為這話已經隱藏封閉,直到末時。

當我讀這些經文的時候,我忽然回神過來。我看著時鐘,很震驚地發現雖然感覺才過了不久,但事實上已經早上六點鐘了。

接下的兩個晚上,我有完全相同的經歷—整個晚上我都被捲入,且迷失在對啟示的渴望裡,主引導我到但以理書裡。第三個晚上之後,我開始懷疑自己是不是瘋了,所以我呼求神:「到底發生了什麼事?」

主清楚地對我的心說:「大衛,末時已經到了。不久我要開始揭開那隱藏封閉的。」

這次造訪過了幾週之後,我到以色列的一個特會當中分享訊息。當我到達時,我的一位朋友(我曾經與他分享過那次的造訪)充滿興奮地來找我。

她指著手中的報紙說:「大衛,你絕不會相信這篇文章,」「幾週以前,有史以來第一次,考古學從聖殿山發現一個可追溯到第一聖殿時期的文字手工藝品。你知道他們發現了什麼嗎?」

 

我問:「什麼?」

 

「一個2600年的封印。」

當我盯著這篇文章的時候,我的心呼求:「主,這一切到底是怎麼一回事!」

主回答我說:「大衛,你懷疑這一切的經歷是否只是一場夢,但我要你知道—它不是,它是真實的,而且那天會很快來到,我要開始攪動我的肢體,將那隱藏封閉的向那些需要知道的人揭開。」

Reveal 19

 

自那次經歷之後,已過了將近五年。但幾個月以前,主突然提醒我那次的造訪,然後祂說:「這就是那時刻。」我問主:「是什麼時刻?」祂回答:「教會開始解開但以理書奧祕的時刻已經來到,那關乎我對中東末時的旨意。」

以賽亞書第19章給我們一個美好關於末時的圖片:

 

當那日,必有從埃及通亞述去的大道。 亞述人要進入埃及,埃及人也進入亞述;埃及人要與亞述人一同敬拜耶和華。當那日,以色列必與埃及、亞述三國一律,使地上的人得福;因為萬軍之耶和華賜福給他們,說:「埃及─我的百姓,亞述─我手的工作,以色列─我的產業,都有福了!」(以賽亞書19:23-25)

你能想像中東不再是一個紛亂的地方,卻是一個祝福之地,阿拉伯人和猶太人一起敬拜主嗎?我知道這看似不可能,卻是神心裡的夢想。而且有一件事我們必須知道,不管需要多久時間,神的夢想總是會實現。

我相信我們已經進入一個列國歷史的關鍵時刻(kairos),神渴望對教會揭開祂關乎以實瑪利後裔(阿拉伯人)和以撒後裔(猶太人)的心意。今年夏天,我相信主正在呼召全球教會的餘民一起聚集,開始看見這啟示被釋放的過程。

【Reveal 19】聚集將於8月12-14日在加拿大BC省蘭里校區的三一西部大學舉行 (Trinity Western University in Langley, BC)。它會依照我們過去聚集時同樣的國度原則。我們會長時間的敬拜、等候主、進入祂的同在,和獻上我們的心來領受從祂而來的啟示。一個屬靈父母的團隊將遮蓋、幫助和保護這一切主要做的事,此團隊將由有經驗的猶太人、阿拉伯人和列國中值得信賴的領袖組成。

未來的幾週,我們將會公佈更多關於報名和食宿的細節。對那些計畫搭乘飛機的人,阿伯玆福德(Abbotsford,離三一西部大學約20分鐘—WestJet航線)或溫哥華(離三一西部大學約1小時)是最近的機場。

我期待能與所有八月份被呼召來蘭里的人在主前聚集。

致上我所有的愛

大衛‧戴冕恩(David Demian)

Reveal 19: The Destiny of the Sons of Ishmael and the Sons of Isaac

A number of years ago, I had a very unusual encounter with the Lord. It was 1:00 am and even though I was tired from a full day of activities with my wife and 7 kids, my spirit was stirring and I felt compelled to pray. Immediately I was caught up in an encounter with God and I began weeping profusely as I was overcome with an inexpressible yearning for a new capacity of revelation to be released to the Church. As the experience continued, I heard a voice in my spirit direct me to read Daniel 10-12. This is the passage where Daniel was seeking the Lord for greater revelation concerning the fate of his people. Finally, after 21 days of earthly fasting and heavenly warfare, an angel appeared and shared with him a detailed but unsettling vision of the future. Then Daniel said:

 

I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, "My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?"

He replied, "Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.

 

As I read these verses I suddenly “came to”. When I looked at the clock I was shocked to find that even though I felt like only a few moments had passed, it was in fact already 6:00 am.

 

The next two nights, I had the exact same experience – I was caught up all night, lost in yearning for revelation, with the Lord directing me to Daniel. After the third night, I was really starting to wonder if I was losing my mind, so I cried out to the Lord, “What is going on?”

 

And the Lord spoke clearly to my heart saying, “David, the time of the end has come. Soon I will begin to reveal that which has been sealed.”

 

A few weeks after this visitation, I traveled to Israel to speak at a conference. When I arrived a friend of mine, with whom I had shared about this visitation, came to me brimming with excitement.

 

“David, you will never believe this article,” she said, gesturing with the newspaper she was holding in her hand. “A few weeks ago, for the first time ever, archeologists found a written artifact from the Temple Mount dating to the time of the First Temple. Do you know what they found?

 

“What?” I asked.

 

“A 2600-year-old seal.”

 

As I stared at the article, my heart cried out, “Lord what is this all about!”

And the Lord answered me, “David, you wondered if that whole experience was just a dream. But I wanted you to know – it wasn’t – it was real. And so is what I told you. The time of the end has come and the day will come soon when I will stir My body to press in for the unsealing of all that is to be revealed.”

 

Reveal 19

Almost 5 years have passed since that experience. But a few months ago, the Lord suddenly reminded me of this visitation and then said, “It’s time”. When I asked him, “Time for what?” He answered, that the time has come for the Church to begin to unlock the mysteries of Daniel, concerning His end-time purposes for the Middle East.

 

Isaiah 19 gives us a fascinating picture of the “time of the end”.

 

In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, "Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance." Isaiah 19:23-25

 

Can you imagine the Middle East not as a place of conflict, but as a place of blessing, where the Arabs and Jews worship the Lord together? I know it seems impossible but this is the dream of God’s heart. And one thing we must know; no matter how long it takes, God’s dreams always come true.

 

I believe that we have entered a kairos timing in the history of nations, when God longs to reveal to the Church His heart concerning the destiny of the sons of Ishmael (the Arabs) and the sons of Isaac (the Jews). This summer, I believe the Lord is calling a remnant of believers from the Church worldwide to gather to begin the process of seeing this revelation released.

 

Reveal 19 will take place August 12-14 on the campus of Trinity Western University in Langley, BC. The event will follow the same kingdom principles we have practiced during the gatherings. We will spend extended times in worship and waiting on the Lord, entering into His presence and posturing our hearts to receive revelation from Him. A team of spiritual fathers and mothers, composed of seasoned Jewish and Arab leaders, along with other trusted leaders from the nations, will oversee, facilitate and protect all that the Lord wants to do.

 

More details concerning registration, food and accommodations will be released in the next few weeks. For those wanting to make flight plans, Abbotsford (20 minutes from TWU – served by WestJet) or Vancouver (1 hour from TWU) are the closest airports.

 

I look forward to gathering before the Lord with all those called to be in Langley this August.

 

All my love

 

David
