Santiago de Chile/Talca City – August 2016 – Day 6 and 7

Santiago de Chile/Talca City

August 8th, 2016

Day 6

Today is a most needed resting day for us. Some of the saints are brave and go up into the snow-covered mountains, some decide to explore the city, and the rest of us are really resting to get some extra energy for the next 8 days. Photos from the mountain excursion can be found on thirdexodus.org

I just want to take the opportunity to acknowledge the precious believers here in Santiago, who are so very kind and hospital to us;  in the flesh we are strangers to them, but we feel the same Spirit. The brothers and sisters are labouring joyfully and they are thankful for the opportunity to meet with believers from the other side of the world. They certainly have recognized the gift, that God has bestowed to his servant. We in return feel very privileged to be able to come to this part of the globe. Although a conversation in Spanish is only possible by google translator, we have a real blessed time, knowing that we will spend eternity together, where we will speak all one language.

This day concludes with a nice dinner, where we also meet Pastor Patricio Meneses, who just arrived from Arica and who is accompanying us for the next meetings in different cities.

before we get ready to travel for about 3 hours by bus, 300 km to the South to reach Talca City.

Talca means “Thunder” and that’s exactly what is happening; God is thundering His Voice to prepare His people for dimensional travel. Pastor Brother Bernardino Munoz invited Brother Vin to minister to his little congregation here at the backside of the desert.DSC_1145

I never can stop thinking about where God has planted His children, where men would least expect it; be it in big cities, country sides, on the sea or way up on the mountains. Wherever they might be, the  Holy Spirit is wooing each one of His attributes back home, because He is not complete without them.

The landscape in this part of the country here is very beautiful; the Andes mountains border the left side of the highway all the way to Talca City. This area seems to be the fruit basket of Chile with plenty orchards and vineyards which are known for some of the best grapes of the world. The winter is passing slowly and we can see already DSC_1115some trees putting forth their tender buds to announce the long awaited spring time.

The precious sisters serve us a very delicious lunch, which took them no doubt many hours to prepare. Ever since we arrived they are working tirelessly in the kitchen.

Close to Pastor Bernardino Munoz’ house is the venue for the next two meetings and tonight at 6:30 we are gathering here for a praise- and worship service with Brother Isaac Villarroel leading the songs.

Many ministers, Brother Pedro Peralta, Brother Patricio Meneses, Brothers Carlos and Jose Canete, Brother Elias Gonzalez, who had the inspiration for these meetings, and Brother Ezequiel all the way from Argentina are present.

Psalm 51:5-12 [5] Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. [6] Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. [7] Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. [8] Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. [9] Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. [10] Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. [11] Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. [12] Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

The saints from Talca City have beautiful voices and start singing several of their specialsDSC_1241DSC_1234 followed by our singers.DSC_1277DSC_1211It’s creating such a wonderful atmosphere, so when Brother Vin comes to the pulpit for a greeting, he certainly cannot refrain himself for ministering more than a greeting. We learn now, that Brother Elias Gonzalez was sitting as a 14 year old boy in the congregation, when Brother Vin was the first time in Santiago in 1992. I just summarize a few things, that Brother Vin speaks about:

 

“Great things always happen when you have a people whose thinking is filtered; people who know that they are elected and called, and in this hour God is placing each one in the Body of Christ, where we honour Him with what He has given to us in our lives. When our licks of fire come together there is enough power to heal every sick, to deliver every captive. It’s a great thing to be sensitive and know the potentials that lay in a son and a daughter of God.DSC_1343

The highest form of worship in the Old Testament was when Solomon dedicated the temple and the glory of God came down, so that the priests couldn’t minister. The highest form of worship in the New Testament is when the Lamb took the Book.

Revelation 5:7-9

[7] And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. [8] And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. [9] And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

What a place we have come to. When the Book was open, John saw his name, and saw that he was considered in redemption. John is a type of the Bride and when the Book is open they began to sing a new song. Every time a song was written, there are experiences behind it; every revival produces its own hymnology.

We are in the final Feast, the fullness of what the Feast of Passover and Pentecost was all about. We are beneficiaries of something that has been made available in this hour, to be made partakers of it, to enter into it.DSC_1334

When we can be perceptive and recognize that what was promised us from the Scripture is happening in this hour… and in a time like this, think of what God can do, because we live in the time and season!

Under this Feast we should have faith to be changed, because this is the message of redemption and grace, and in singing the songs it’s really rehearsing the promises.”

Every day of this journey is special by the grace of God and much appreciated.
