This is the day of our departure. If I could, I would summarize this whole visit with:
The Violent Take It By Force
Some years ago Brother Pavel realized that there were more heights to climb in the Word, and he wanted himself and his church to come up higher. He took a group of 6 men from his church in 2013 and journeyed all the way to Trinidad, because just like the Queen of Sheba he had heard about the great things happening there.
1 Kings 10
1. And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions. 2. And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart. 3. And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not. 4. And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built, 5. And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her. 6. And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. 7. Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard. 8. Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom. 9. Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.
After his first visit Brother Pavel went back home with his report to many more servants of God in his church and region, and in the beginning of 2014 they travelled a second time to Trinidad; this time they were a group of 15 men.
Coming back home to Vilnius after being the second time in the Chambers of the South, a total transformation took place in their lives, in the lives of the families, and the entire church started to mature so quick by the opening of the Word, the second fold of the Seventh Seal. Being here now for these 14 days we were able to partake of the fruits of the trees. We listened to the songs that were written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and we are amazed about the maturity, the sincerity and the joy in this little church in Vilnius.
We recognize the identification with the Word in our brothers and sisters here, and we can see the results in their lives to fulfill the promise of the hour. Men that rally together to bring forth such a praise and exhibition of the life of Christ. We see where the seeds have fallen and the crop that is coming forth.
The bond of friendship has grown stronger, as we see the prophecy is coming to pass.
