Invitation for 7 Week Prayer Connection (10/2-11/19)

7週禱告連結邀請 (10/2-11/19)

The beginning of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) this year is October 3rd, which is also the Feast of Trumpets. Since Jewish day starts at sunset, thus, at the dusk of October 2nd, the Jewish year of 5777 will begin.

今年猶太新年(Rosh Hashanah)「年頭」是10月3日,也就是吹角日,而猶太人的日子是從日落開始起算,因此從2016年10月2日的黃昏,猶太曆就進入了5777年。

Jewish year of 5776 is the 70th Jubilee since Joshua led the Israelites into the Promise Land, while 2015 is the 70th year since the end of WWII in human history. Indeed, the Jewish year of 5776 which spanned from 2015 to 2016 also marked the turning point in our history. 5777, subsequently, is like a watershed that leads the world into the end times. Like a trumpet blowing a warning sound, 5777 calls for people to return to God as we encounter many challenges and disasters during these troubling times. At the same time, God is also calling His Church to be “clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him” (Rev. 19: 14), to completely submit herself to Him, and to fight along with Him, in order to face the greater end time battle ahead. The Church will receive a greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit, “for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe” (Rev.14: 15). As we enter into 5777, let’s receive the Holy Spirit, manifest His Kingship and prepare for His second coming! (From 2016 Quarterly Bread of Life, 3rd issue, author: Chiao Mei-lun)

猶太曆5776年是自約書亞帶領以色列百姓進入應許之地的第七十個禧年! 2015年在人類歷史上正是二戰終戰七十年,因此跨越2015年到2016年的5776的確是將歷史翻向另一頁的時刻。5777年好像是一個分水嶺,將人類世界導入末世。好像一把號角,吹響對世人的警戒,呼召世人面對末世的種種災難與挑戰,要快快向神回轉。同時,神也呼召祂的教會,面對末世更大的爭戰,要「穿著細麻衣,又白又潔,跟隨他」(啟十九14),全然委身順服祂,與祂一同爭戰;並領受更大的聖靈澆灌,「因為收割的時候已經到了,地上的莊稼已經熟透了。」(啟十四15)當我們進入5777,讓我們領受神的聖靈、彰顯祂的王權,預備迎見祂的再來!(以上摘自2016靈糧季刊第三季,作者:喬美倫 )

October 2 is also the first day of the 7th week from MTC. Therefore, we will start a 7-week prayer connect on that day (10/2 – 11/19) and would like to invite all MTC family members to join us in prayer. Let us be the wise virgins (Mt 25:1-13) to prepare enough oil. Be on guard, alert and prepared (Mk 13: 32-37) as we enter into the new season. During the 7 weeks, we will go deeper into the Word of God and revelation (Rhema) from the Holy Spirit, to restore, nurture and renew our spiritual DNA. We pray that Sons and Daughters of God will be prepared and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ (Eph 4:11-13). As the Joshua generation, we will inherit the land – the various spheres in the society that we are called into.

10月2日,也剛好是我們進入MTC前的第七週的开始。在此,我們邀請MTC家人們一起加入此7週的禱告連結(10/2 – 11/19)。讓我們一同謹慎、儆醒、預備(可十三32-37),做聰明的童女,預備足夠的燈油(太二十五1-13),進入神新的季節。7週中,我們將用神的話,藉著聖靈的啟示,修復、滋養和更新我們屬靈的DNA,使神眾子的生命被成全,得以長大成人,滿有基督的身量(弗四11-13); 並且如同約書亞的世代,在祂呼召我們進入的社會各个領域中為神得地為業!
