Taiwan Day 58 – Kings of the East
Revelation 16:12 – “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and is water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.”
After diving into several teachings and studies on this portion of Revelation earlier this year, it all the more not only confirmed my decision to leave my life in Hawaii but also stirred me all the more about the necessity of being able to be with and minister with my people of Taiwan in preparation for the end times. My knowledge is to limited to determine exactly where and what in terms of all the details, but from what I’m understanding from scripture and in reverence that our all powerful, all knowing, all loving God is in control from the heavens. It’s more of a matter of whether we are able to understanding the implications and really access what is happening amongst the nations as we can determine from all of the signs, wonders, and miracles that we are in fact in the end times. Right now there is no other block of nations or people groups such as Asia that are coming not only to get to know the Lord in the masses, but be entirely sold out to the point of martyrdom in preparation for this final battle in the great tribulation. Taiwan has a very huge role to play in this – and though a lot of people might not see it in this sort of context especially in a nation where less than 6% of the 23 million inhabitants even claim any ties to the Christian faith, it’s obvious that first thing is first. That in my giving of my life to the Taiwanese, I need to start and minister to the fullest through what’s been given, who’s been given, and charge every opportunity that I get to minister to someone through building relationships, serving the church, and preaching the Gospel in faith, hope, and love.
Father, there are so many things that are so great beyond my own wisdom and knowledge.. but just as you relayed to Job that some things just aren’t for us to fully fathom.. but from what I can gather is that through my insignificance that you are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.. and the author and finisher of our faith.. the Alpha and Omega, who was and is to come. Lord Jesus, I pray for the people of Taiwan, that not only will they come to get to know you, but that their lives will be radically changed to the point where they are completely sold out to making disciples of all nations.. baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.. teaching others to obey all the things that You have commanded us.. so that you would be with us always, to the very end of the age.
