A Special Doulos Assembly and Bangon Strategy Meeting will be held on March 7, 2013, 7:00PM at CLSF Main Sanctuary Goshen Building, Mandaluyong City. See you all there!
Once more, the CLSF Central Sanctuary in Mandaluyong City became the venue of a historical re-launch of Bangon Pilipinas Party last Thursday, January 24 from 2:00pm to 6:00PM. The re-launching was held in connection with the candidacy of Bro. Eddie C. Villanueva for the coming May 2013 Senatorial Elections. Bishop “Kuya” Dan A. Balais, the CLSF Senior Pastor and Spiritual Director hosted the gathering attended by the Ministerial Chairmen of the seventeen cities of Metro Manila and more than 150 key pastors and spiritual leaders in the Metropolis. The gathering was initiated by the National Board of the Philippines for Jesus Movement (PJM) led by its National Chairman, Bishop Leo Alconga and Kuya Dan himself as the PJM National Director. The purpose of the re-launch was to announce the candidacy of Bro. Eddie and craft a campaign strategy that will involve the whole Body of Christ nationwide. This was all in response to the prophetic directive to contend for the destiny of the nation and not give up the fight to see righteous governance arise in the nation in this “kairos” time of our Jubilee season.
Kuya Dan gave a prophetic update of the Philippines with the 490th Year Jubilee of Jubilees as foundation for the positive and intentional action of the people of God in pursuing our glorious prophetic destiny. Kuya Dan shared to the Metro Manila pastors the crucial time that we are in the light of the New Season and Final Dispensation that the Lord has set for the whole earth in our generation. Kuya Dan said that is there is any other time that we have to passionately pursue our destiny, it is now. “The nation is at the threshold of prophetic fulfillment”, Kuya Dan emphasized. “This is the time to seize our prophetic destiny!” Kuya Dan challenged the pastors and leaders.
Bishop Leo Alconga further exhorted the pastors to respond in faith and take decisive action to support the candidacy of Bro. Eddie. He said that we must properly understand the mandate of the Lord given to Bro. Eddie and the entire Body of Christ so that we will fight well in this quest for righteous leadership to arise in the nation. Bishop Leo also shared about the strategy that the Body of Christ would adopt in raising the much needed funds and campaigning in the grassroots in every barangay throughout the nation.
The meeting was highlighted by the arrival of Bro. Eddie where he shared the whole difficult journey as he seeks to please the Lord obeying His calling for His life. Relating the experiences of the past two elections, Bro. Eddie spoke from his heart and shared with the pastors how he was tempted to retreat and just take his comfort zone being the Spiritual Director of the Jesus Is Lord (JIL) Church, the largest Bible based church in the nation and one of the largest in the world. Bro. Eddie said that what he cannot endure is to suffer eternal regret of not obeying the Lord when he is given the grace and the opportunity to offer himself as God’s instrument in fulfilling His purpose on the earth. It was a very touching sharing of the heart which was welcomed by the pastors and strengthened their resolve to fight with Bro. Eddie for the establishment of righteousness in the land in the area of the government.
The meeting was ended with Kuya Dan leading the pastors in praying for Bro. Eddie. Kuya Dan released a prophecy for Bro. Eddie which brought great confirmation to the fight that Bro. Eddie is about to take. The meeting was adjourned with a prayer and benediction. The pastors were enlightened and are ready to receive the directions that will be issued by the Bangon Pilipinas leadership within the next few weeks.
As a token of CLSF’s commitment and active participation in contending for the nation’s destiny, Kuya Dan volunteered to commit the extra conference room of the CLSF to be the office headquarters of Bangon Pilipinas for the whole three month duration of the campaign. It is now being prepared and spruced up in time for the start of the campaign period. With the strong gains and momentum in the nationwide mobilization in the 24 Hour Houses of Prayers (24HHP) spearheaded by the Intercessors for the Philippines (IFP) and the recent breakthrough in the unity of the bishops of the PJM and the Philippines Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), the Body of Christ in the Philippines indeed is in a strong position to bring the nation to its prophetic destiny!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The 4th Open Heavens Prophetic Conference
Once again, the CLSF came out well represented in the on- going 4th Open Heavens Prophetic Conference being held from Nov 30- Dec 9, 2011 in St. Catherine Park, Mount Sinai, Egypt and continuing on in Jerusalem, Israel. The annual prophetic conference is hosted by Jesus Ministries and Angel TV of prophet Bro. Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj. A total of 22 delegates represented the Philippines with nine leaders coming from CLSF.
Bishop “Kuya” Dan Balais and his wife, Ate Tanette were joined by three CLSF National Elders namely Kuya Andrew and Ate Nenet Sombilla and Ate Nona Londonio. Four KE Satellite leaders, all coming from CLSF Pasay KE Satellite completed the church delegation, namely Kuya Joey and Ate Shirley Caburnida and Kuya Dennis and Ate Maria Bobier. Other delegates from IFP are Pastor Ed de Guzman and his wife Nonet; Pastor Joel Bataclan, Juan and Helen Coromina, Mariah Lagman, Susan Hervacio and Hermie de Leon. Bro. Wyden and Antonia King and their children namely, Jerobi, Cheney, Ginger and her husband Ronnie Villavicencio complete the Philippine delegation. Since it is winter time in Egypt at the time of the conference with freezing temperatures dropping to as low as 5 degrees centigrade at Mount Sinai, Kuya Dan and the team have to wear thick winter clothes to battle the extreme cold, more so that the conference was held in a huge, un-insulated tent, a tabernacle especially constructed on the open grounds of Saint Catherine’s Park with insufficient and close to nil heating system.
This Open Heavens Prophetic Conference held at Mount Sinai in Egypt and continuing on in Jerusalem, Israel is a very crucial event as prophets Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj of India and Robert Misst of New Zealand unveiled the mysteries regarding the end time events and what the Lord is about to do in the church worldwide in these Last Days. Bro. Sadhu was led by the Lord to bring the whole delegation to Mount Sinai to be consecrated to the Lord and receive the end time anointing to set the nations free from the bondages of the Kingdom of darkness. As Moses was commissioned and sent by the God to bring Israel out of Egypt and put upon his hand the rod of the Lord by which he would do powerful signs and wonders (Exodus 3: 1-22; 4: 1-9), the Lord is commissioning God’s people to engage Satan and his dark angels who have imprisoned and destroyed nations for thousands of years since the fall of Adam and Eve in the fiercest end time war as the “ezer” warrior Bride of Christ and reap the greatest harvest of souls in the history of mankind. To be able to do this, a company of prophetic warriors representing the church worldwide has to come up Mount Sinai, the mountain of the Lord to receive such anointing power to set their respective nations free in this new season and final dispensation for God’s people.
The whole delegation of more than 500 prophetic intercessors from more than 30 countries were in fasted for three days from the start of the conference last Nov. 30 up to Dec. 2 as they prepared and consecrate their hearts to receive the anointing on the final day of the conference. Bro. Sadhu and the company of prophets with him saw pillars of fire in the midst of the people throughout the conference held in a huge tent, a tabernacle specially constructed at the foot of Mount Sinai in St. Catherine’s Park. Multitudes of angels were all the time present during the conference and in all the rooms of the inns and hotels where the delegation is staying. Kuya Dan and the whole CLSF and IFP team received with open hearts everything that the Lord is pouring out with the singular focus of bringing the anointing back to the Philippines enforcing the mandate to set our nation free through the new and an unprecedented level of prophetic anointing.
On December 3, the final day of the conference, an anointing service was held where Bro. Sadhu personally anointed each one and released the end-time anointing to set nations free. The early morning of the following day, December 4, the whole delegation had a chance to go up to Mount Sinai and set their feet to the very place where Moses met the “Great I Am, that I Am” in the Burning Bush (Exodus 3:1-14). It was a glorious, fantastic sight to see the sunrise over the horizon of the Egyptian wilderness at the top of Mount Sinai where the children of Israel journeyed for 40 years towards their promised land. The CLSF and IFP team led by Bishop “Kuya” Dan received the anointing that will end our 490 years of wilderness wanderings and enter our own “Promised Land” at the sunrise of our Jubilee season for the Philippines!

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with his own blood” Acts 20:28
Another milestone has taken place in the CLSF when a total of 120 KE Satellites Elders coming from 17 KE satellite installed yesterday, February 26 in a simple installation ceremony at the CLSF Central church at 453 Calbayog St., Mandaluyong City during the second Doulos Assembly for the year 2011. CLSF Bishop and Spiritual Director, Kuya Dan Balais led the CLSF National Elders in the installation service exhorting the incumbent KE Satellite Elders and the new incoming ones to shepherd and nurture the flock of God which the Lord Jesus bought by His blood and which the Holy Spirit has made them overseers or elders. Kuya Dan laid down to the Satellite Elders the qualifications of elders in Titus 1: 5-8; II Tim 2: 1-13 and I Pet 5:2).
The installation of the KE Satellite Elders was in line with the ministry direction of the CLSF for the ministry year 2011, the first of the Jubilee decade for the nation, of establishing strong apostolic leadership to be able to establish strong and mature believers and churches to be able to meet the challenges of these Last Days that we are living in. Kuya Dan declares that we need to enter this new season in God’s redemptive time table with renewed commitment to walk with God in purity and holiness, always be filled with the Holy Spirit and strong commitment to fulfill the Great Commission through fervent prayers, evangelization and discipleship of believers. It is the CLSF vision to establish strong churches and work together with the rest of the Body of Chrost to raise up a nation of Davids, the Jubilee battle cry and mandate.
Kuya Peter, the head of the CLSF Pastoral Department said that we need to intensify the evangelization of our communities to effectuate a transformation of our cities establishing righteousness in the different facets of our society for the glory of God. Ate Tanette shared the prophetic words of Bro. Sadhu released during the Jubilee Prophetic Conference in Surigao City reminding the Doulos and the Satellite Elders that this is the time that we need to be serious in our walk with the Lord. “We need to seek the Lord in fasting and prayers to hear from God and be directed by His Spirit in this very crucial and treacherous times that we are living in our Jubilee season”, Ate Tanette added. As we increase our commitment to walk with God and seek His face, the Lord’s favor will be released to us giving us victory in this great battle for the nation’s destiny.
With the fresh move of God in CLSF, the establishment of strong spiritual discipline in prayers and fasting, intimate worship and the fear of the Lord coming upon the CLSF congregations, the goal to reach out to thousands of souls in every city in Metro Manila will not be impossible at all. Kuya Dan encouraged the KE Satellite leadership to pursue our vision with such zeal and commitment to God’s agenda in these Last Days. The opportunity to establish and expand the kingdom of God in the nation is great. The Lord is looking for loyal hearts to whom He will sow Himself strong and that shall do mighty exploits for His Kingdom (II Chron 16:9; Dan 11: 32).
The KE Pastors, KE Satellite Elders and the Doulos came out of the gathering much encouraged and edified to pursue the vision for the Jubilee decade with much commitment and zeal. The CLSF has entered a new season in God’s prophetic season. We need to pursue seeking the face of God and receive the greater anointing that He will pour out in these Last Days!
