  • Now I will pray with greater understanding and desire continually — Restoration, Revival among the First Nations! An eye-opener for me; it has started!!!

  • Multicultural: we experienced a stronger connectivity among the Hispanics, Asians, Jewish people, African, First Nations Indians, Caucasians, all in the same room. Unusual! We had a great fellowship together. Like heaven on earth. Let's do this more often

  • Declaring the opening of the senses- "5 Gates" that the soul (mind, will, emotions) may receive the spiritual impartation released at Joy Night 2018

  • Gatekeeper 2 - Pastor Dale Wafer
    We decree the opening of both eye gates - to see clearly the vision presented.
  • Gatekeeper 3 - Rev. Carl Tavares
    We decree opening the mouth gate and with it we will chew and digest the word of God released.
  • Gatekeeper 4 - Ps Hernando Caicedo
    We decree the opening of the nose gate - to detect the sweet aroma of God's presence in the midst
  • Gatekeeper 5 - Bishop Williams
    We decree the opening of the feel gate - that we remain aware, sensitive to the touch of the Holy Spirit.

All the Assembly Shout: ......"Change our world with love and kindness."

Visual Presentation: Good News!

  • God's son Jesus gave His life that He may have a family out of every nation, tribe, people and language. Revelation 7:9

  • One Holy Spirit from The Father making us "One" John 7:21. Our mission -

Ambassadors of Christ (2 Cor 5:20). His Voice on earth - Instruments of Peace!!

All the Assembly Shout ..... AMEN!!!

Ps. Josh Robinson

II. Overcomers response: Instruments of Peace!

1. I am Jewish — Rabbi Eric Teitelman

Photo 0167
Photo 0167

"Where there is injury, I release pardon"

Injury/Pardon

I am an Instrument of Peace declaring the "One New Man" through the Messiah (Jesus)

When we permit the Messiah (Jesus) to minister to our personal pain, we forgive others error. We release them with forgiveness and the Love of the Messiah, Jesus.

Let "all return to the Lord and He will have mercy on him, for He will abundantly pardon."

All the Assembly Shout.....From injury and pain to pardon and forgiveness = Peace!

2. I am African American — Bishop Holmes / Rev. Randall

Photo 0172
Photo 0172

"Where there is doubt, I release Faith"

Doubt/Faith

I am an Instrument of Peace declaring Faith. Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. We except finite disappointment but never doubt and lose our infinite hope.

All African Americans Shout Amen!!!

1 Peter 5:10 "and The God of all grace who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."

All the Assembly Shout....Calm replace stress!!! I am an overcomer!

3. I am First Nation "Crow Tribe" Intelligence and Adaptability —Verily Eubanks

Photo 0197
Photo 0197

"Where there is covetousness, greed, comes generosity, unselfishness and kindness"

I too am an Instrument of Peace, just as the Jewish people and the African-Americans declared forgiveness for their injury and pain; the First Nations likewise offer forgiveness for the pain they are suffering because of - "The Trail of Tears". - I am an Instrument of Peace declaring the rising of the First Nations recognizing and reclaiming their birthright as Eagles, warriors, and leaders. The redemptive power of God is being poured out and received by the First Nations. There is a strong remnant of First Nations who have awakened and now are moving in the power of the Holy Spirit as Instruments of Peace to bring healing to the brokenhearted among the tribes and have received an anointing to move forward in the body of Christ. Shout Amen!!!

All the Assembly Shout — Restoration, Revival among the First Nations.

4. I am Hispanic — Ps. Caicedo / Ps. Gavera

Photo 0198
Photo 0198

"When there is despair, I release hope"

Despair/Hope

I am an Instrument of Peace declaring: we refuse to allow despair the threats of life to choke hope; drawing our site down to an earthly level; (Col 3:1, 2). We use the Word of God; our weapon to fight back. We have Hope, Peace in II Chron 20, the divine intervention of our Lord. Therefore Romans 12:12, we are "joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.".....All Hispanics shout Amen!!!

Romans 12:12 declared in Spanish - Hispanics in unison!

All the Assembly Shout: Hope replaces despair!!

5. I am African — Ps. Dada

Photo 0203
Photo 0203

"Where there is darkness, I release light"

Darkness/Light

I am an Instrument of Peace declaring: affirmation to God"s Word: all eyes opened and turn from darkness and apathy to the sinful path detested by the Lord so prevalent: arrogance, pride, and all God hates in Proverbs 6:16-19; the manifestation of darkness released from the hearts; be replaced with John 8:12, "I am the light of the world, he who follows "Me" will not walk in darkness, but have the "Light of Life".... All Africans Shout Amen!!!

All the Assembly Shout. — Let the Freedom of Light Replace the Bondage of Darkness!!!

6. I am Asian — Ps. John Lee / Joshua Choi

Photo 0208
Photo 0208

"Sadness endures for a moment, but Joy comes in the morning" Sadness/Joy

I am an Instrument of Peace declaring: there is joy sharing the sadness of your heart with God in prayer and listening as His loving kindness speaks to your inner spirit Life, Comfort and Healing. Lifting the sorrowful spirit with reasons to feel joyful and hopeful. All Asians Shout Amen!!!

Ps 145:21 (Msg) "My mouth is filled with God?s praise. Let everything living bless Him, bless His holy name from now to eternity!"

All the Assembly Shout ..... Joy Replace Sorrow!!

7. I am Caucasian — Jeff Wright

Photo 0213
Photo 0213

"I choose to love as I have been loved"

Loved by God/Loves others

I am an instrument of peace declaring: when you belong to Jesus, you belong to love, and you forfeit your right to choose whom you will love.

Joy when God"s Family (Rev 7:9) walk in love, harmony, oneness, and unity - Believers unified, showing the way into a divided nation. Believers not to be known by their differences; Jesus said "you are only known by His love, His love through you!!!! All Caucasians Shout Amen!

Photo 0210

All theAssembly Shout....."Love one another just as I have loved you "John 13:34
