不經不覺,還有一年我便到30歲了...

記得在我信主四年後(當時大約是21歲),心裡有個長久不消的感動──23歲,我會進入信仰的另一個階段。從那時起,我就很期待23歲的來臨,憧憬著前面的平步青雲。

然而,到了23歲,事情卻完全不如我想像。從那一年開始,我像落入了人生的幽谷裡...

6年後的今天回看──是在山谷的數年中,我的價值觀從短暫變為永恆;我的注意力,從外在轉為內在;我的倚靠與寄望,也從人身上,轉到神身上。

2004年初,心裡出現了另一個長久不散的感動──30歲。

我知道在聖經裡,大衛約在17歲被神呼召,23歲流落曠野亞杜蘭洞,30歲進入希伯崙。

神是想告訴我,在30歲的時候,我會進入人生的另一個階段嗎?

我不知道。但我會憑著信心去預備、迎接──很明顯,如果我真是希望按時進入希伯崙,在這一年間,我需要學習成為一個喜歡負責任的領袖,學習團隊精神。

有異象,有力量!

今早寫好上面這篇文章後,我埋首開始review file。但心裡有個感動,要上Elijah List。
(其實我好少睇「二奶揸lift匙」的預言...對我黎講d主題太散喇,又好長呢 ^^"。咁耐以黎睇得完的文章,我估十隻手指都數得唒。)

EL的首頁上每天都會刊登一篇最新預言,今天的預言是由Matt Sorger所寫的。

Matt Sorger是誰呢?一個很陌生的名字,老實說,我也不知道他是誰。

但看到他的時候,心裡立即升起很久以前看過的一篇預言,是與30歲約瑟高昇有關的。

我立即用search engine翻查。真是呢,原來是在2004年初的時候,我曾經看過這個Matt Sorger的一篇預言(他在Elijah List發表的預言並不多,那是他第一次在EL發表的預言):

http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=1932

At the age of 17, Joseph received a dream of greatness (Gen 37). He prophetically saw a time of increase and promotion coming in his life. But we know the story of how he was first hated by his brothers, thrown into a pit, sold as a slave, falsely accused and then thrown in to a dungeon. It wasn't until he was 30 years old that the vision came to pass. That was 13 years of hard testing waiting for the promise to be fulfilled (Psa. 105:17-19).

I believe 30 is a significant year. It was at the age of 30 that the priests in the Old Testament began their priestly duties. It was also at the age of 30 that Jesus began His earthly ministry.

There are Joseph's who have been prepared in the secret place of testing for the last 10 or so years and are now being released and commissioned by the hand of God into their God-given calls and destinies.

It was exactly 13 years ago that I received a prophetic word from the Lord about the call and plan of God for my life. He told me that He was raising up a new breed of leaders. There would be no model for us to carbon copy or follow. We would need to be so sensitive and in tune with His voice in order to know the way to go and to walk in the new thing that He would do.

But he also told me that the top of His priority list for me was the refinement of my character that my roots would go down so deep in Him, that when success came, I would be firmly rooted in Him.

This year I turned 30, and with that I was released fulltime into the ministry He had called me to walk in, a healing revival ministry of signs, wonders and miracles. I had been active in ministry for many years serving as an associate pastor, walking through seasons of great testing and refinement. But when God's timing came, I was released to travel the nations in mass miracle crusades and in a ministry of healing revival. It was the moment of release.

But I believe even the events in my own life are a picture of what God is doing in the corporate Body of Christ. There are many Josephs who have had to walk through many tests and have passed with flying colors bringing them into a season of divine promotion and increase in the purposes of God.

是否出於巧合?
都有可能架。

哈哈,兩年後咪知囉...
唔理喇,而家最緊要係:

有異象,有力量!

努力呀!我確信,到2006年底,當詩篇卷四結束的時候,你和我,甚至整個教會歷史、人類歷史都會完全不一樣了。
