“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.” Psalm 24:7
The past two weeks after the 24th National Prayer Gathering (NPG) was a super busy week for me and the Board Members of the Intercessors for the Philippines! The Lord has impressed to Prophets Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj and Vincent Selvakumar that they need to visit and pray in these Seven Gateway Cities of Revival (SGCR) of the Philippines that the Lord supernaturally spoke through Prophet Vincent last 21st NPG. They were instructed by the Lord to proclaim the word of the Lord to these SGCRs and impart to the churches of these cities the prophetic and watchman anointing so that the Lord’s prophetic purposes shall come to pass. Right after the 24th NPG and the subsequent 1st National Youth Prophetic Training held at CCT Campsite in Tagaytay City, we have to embark on a number of rigorous, intense and highly strategic prayer assignments to these gateway cities led by the two Indian prophets that the Lord sent to speak our nation’s destiny before God’s people.
These Gateway Cities that were prophetically revealed are Legazpi, Cagayan de Oro, Lipa, Pampanga (province), Pateros, Baguio and Manila. The prophets, together with the IFP Board and some IFP Key leaders, went to each one of these gateway cities, did prayer walks, intercessions, prophetic proclamations and released Aaronic blessings to them. After these prayer walks and intercessions, Prophets Sadhu and Vincent spoke in prophetic prayer gatherings hastily but effectively organized by IFP Coordinators of those places. These prophetic prayer assignments were met with tremendous and overwhelming response of the churches of these chosen revival places! Except for Manila who was not able to have a prophetic prayer gathering, all the rest of the places were able to organize half day prophetic conferences to give a chance for the pastors and intercessors of their cities to hear the prophets release the specific prophetic word of the Lord. Outstanding among them in terms of attendance were Cagayan de Oro (3,500 pastors and intercessors in attendance at Limketkai Mall Atrium); Pampanga (1,500 in attendance at Heroes Hall of San Fernando); Legazpi (1,200 at International School Gymnasium) and Baguio (550 at Albergo de Ferroca Hotel). It was indeed a strategic prophetic season for those cities who received the word of the Lord with wide open hearts! They also commit themselves to do everything that is needed to make sure that God’s great and wonderful plan to make their cities as the passageways of the mighty revival that shall sweep upon the land!
Indeed, 2013 is our Passover Year where we are entering the threshold of our prophetic fulfillment! The month of April, in this third year of our Jubilee Season, coincided with the Passover month of Israel where they were set free from 400 years of slavery in Egypt! For the Philippines, this is our 490th Year, our Jubilee of Jubilees! The gateways have been opened! It is now for us, the end time prophetic church, to make the final push and vigorously and valiantly contend for our destiny! Let us usher in through our prayers, fasting, proclamations and actions the coming of the Lord Jesus, the King of Glory upon our beloved land!
