It is so wonderful for us to be gathered on Sakhalin island! There was a time when being commissioned by the brethren I traveled over the island by “narrow gauge” railway to serve communion to small churches in its cities.
Sakhalin remains in my heart. Once, due to weather conditions, my plane was delayed in Sakhalin, and the aviation company put me up in a hotel to wait for good weather. I stayed, and the Lord gave me a dream in which a little boy grabbed me with his hands and cried, saying: “Don’t leave me, stay here!” I accepted it as it was with Apostle Paul – when a man of Macedonia appeared to him and asked the man of God to come and declare the way of salvation. It was the same with Patrick when people came to him in dreams and asked him to come to them. Patrick was forced by God to return to Ireland, because, as a human being, he would not want to return to the country where he experienced slavery.
Today I see this boy, a lad. I accept this message.
It came to my heart to give you a Word so that you can receive the calling of the islanders. Because you are on an island.
God has a Word for the islanders. And He has many Words about the islands.
I would inspire you to write out the promises to the islanders, to cloth yourselves in promises, as in chain mail and armor, so that they stay in your mind and prayer, so that you remind God of His promises. It was a prophetic tradition when they reminded God that He had promised. Jeremiah, Abraham, other prophets reminded God of the promises.
You islanders should know your legal rights! Don’t put up with what you can’t do. But you can speak to God what He promised to the islanders, and I think God likes that. Write posters for yourself – what God promised for the islands. We must pray and stand in the promises. God is not man, it is impossible for Him to lie. It’s done by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God.
“This is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood. The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, [Elisa,] Tubal, Meshech and Tiras. Sons of Gomer: Askenaz, Riphath and Togarmah. The sons of Javan were Elisha, Tarshish, Kittim and Dodanim. From these the islands of the nations were settled in their lands, each according to his own language, according to their familis, into their nations” (Genesis 10:1-5). This is the origin of the islanders! Today we are adopted! Now walk firmly in that spirit!
Once I was in Malta. There is a serious Order of Malta. In the Bible, this island is listed as Melit. Great Britain is an island, it has influenced the world and influences today. The whole world speaks English precisely because of the British.
That’s what islanders are like. And you should not be weak, but strong people. Let’s praise the Lord with our lives. In general, the origin of the islanders is from Noah. God didn’t want these beautiful points of the earth to stay uninhabited. Noah’s great-grandchildren inhabited them.
Oceania was one of the first missionary points – the natives accepted the Gospel and spread the Good News themselves. Today we can see that the whole of some islands have been saved. For me it is very interesting that the islanders conquered new lands.
You must be strong! You have a whole range of islands here. Go and take the nations with the Gospel! Today you received the metrics. Let’s share the prey together.
“Sing to the Lord a new song, praise to Him from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea and all that is in it, the islands and inhabitants of them” (Isaiah 42:10). So you must sing a new Song! It is the islands that must sing a new Song! This is for the islanders! Praise! In the Spirit, in the prophetic Spirit – prophesy and sing in worship!
“They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing; for the majesty of the Lord they shall cry aloud from the sea. Therefore, glorify the Lord in the east, the name of the Lord, the God of Israel in the islands of the sea” (Isaiah 24:14-15). God expects an exalted voice from the islands today! They will raise their voice! Celebration! They will triumph in greatness. In no way it means a dull spirit. Therefore, keep a high triumphant spirit!
He is waiting for your voice from the sea! Hallelujah! Stand on the shore and shout loudly for the Lord to reveal His glory! On the islands – the Name of the Lord! Jesus! Holy is His Name.
What a beauty that this Word is written to you today! This is the Lord speaking!
“Listen, O islands, to Me, and take heed, you peoples from afar! The Lord has called me from the womb, from the matrix of my mother He has made mention of my name. And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has hidden me, and made me a polished shaft; in His quiver He has hidden Me. And He said to me, You are my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified” (Isaiah 49:1-3).
The islands must listen to the Messiah. Read what Jesus said. Because His Voice is here. Read exactly the words of the Messiah, what exactly Jesus said in the New Testament. If you do all this, everything will change. Read aloud! Listen to Him! Release His Words. This will produce an effect in the spiritual world.
The next thing. “Behold, I will bring them forth from the north country and gather them from the ends of the earth; among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and the one who labors with child, together, a great throng shall return there. They shall come with weeping, ands with suuplication I will lead them; I will cause them to walk by the rivers of water, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the isles far off and say: “He who scattered Israel, will gather them and keep them, like a shepherd does his flock. For the Lord has redeemed Jacob and ransomed him from the hand of the one stronger than he” (Jeremiah 31:8-11). You must pray for Israel! Remember Israel! You must bless her from the islands. God is gathering Israel today. Pray for her!
This is a prophetic word. Do what the Lord has commanded you personally! You live on an island – and this Word is for you! Teach the other islands to bless Israel. You will receive the grace of the God of Israel.
“Now when they have escaped they then found out that the island was called Malta. And the natives showed us unusual kindness, for they kindled a fire and made us all welcome, because of the rain that was falling and because of the cold. But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, viper came out because of the heat and fastened on his hand. So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to each other: “no doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he had escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live”. But he shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm. However they were expecting him to swell up, or suddenly fall down dead; but after they had looked for a long time and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god. In that region there was an estate of the leading citizen of the island, whose name was Publius, who received us and entertained us courteously for three days. And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him. So when this was done the rest of those on the island who had deseases also came and were healed.nThey also honored us in many ways, and when we departed they provided such things as were necessary.” (Acts28: 1-10). Look how generous the islanders were in serving the Holy Spirit. The superstition of the islanders was defeated.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are to be manifested on the island here. It was the gifts of the Spirit – healing, demonstration of miracles – that made a splash on the island: so that they treated and provided everything they needed with honors!
Release the gifts in your churches, islanders! They will produce generosity among the people! You, as evangelists, reveal the Holy Spirit, release the anointing, unveil your anointing! In this way, God will perform signs, and the island people will open up to you because they will see miracles!
These things are the keys. Secret Keys! Six secrets is a human number. And the seventh – find it yourself!
