Divine Perspectives from the Asian Tsunami Disaster 
01/2005

On the 26th of December 2004, a horrific natural catastrophe took place at the Indian Ocean just off the Coast of Sumatra Island of Indonesia. The world was left overwhelmed and appalled by the unexpected incident which has caused the death of over 150,000 people, with many still reported missing. The devastating phenomenon, the Tsunami, is a Japanese word that can be represented by two (Japanese) characters “tsu”, which means port or harbour; and “nami”, which means wave. Literally, the word tsunami means “harbour wave”. Tsunami is a very large ocean wave caused by an underwater earthquake or a volcanic eruption. The recent calamity, affecting large regions of South and South East Asia, is caused by an underwater earthquake. This underwater seismic activity, which results in a catastrophic tsunami, has profound significance to the Christian community globally.

On the morning of 27th December 2004, the Lord impressed these thoughts strongly upon my consciousness: “Tsunami waves of glory and revival fires are coming to Asia in a big way.” I firmly believed that the season of revival is coming to Asia and the world. In fact, in July last year (2004) as well as in late 1999, the Lord said that the springs of revival will occur in the year 2005.

Prompted by the Holy Spirit, we started organising a series of glory and revival meetings in Singapore, Indonesia and Taiwan since December last year. Our honourable guest speaker, Prophet Charlie Robinson, a Canadian revivalist of the Golden Lion Ministries cum Fresh Fire Ministries, discerned back in 1st December 2004 that a major principality of this Asiatic region has been bounded. The Lord highlighted this to Charlie through a prophetic sign: the crashed of Air Boeing MD-82 in Solo City, Indonesia on the 30th November 2004. The name of the airline involved is called “Lion Air”. God judged the Lion Spirit and it was defeated and bounded! Indeed, the Lion of the tribe of Judah has prevailed over His enemies. (Ps. 108:13; Ps 68:1, 2, 21; Rev 5:5) We could sense that revival is on its way to Indonesia! In this new year, the church of Jesus Christ will undergo a season of heart-circumcision. This process will further deepened the work of purification in the church so as to bring forth true consecration, whereby qualifying her for the end-times kingdom mandates. In the year 2005, the world shall experience tremendous lamentations over many waves of calamities and crises that will leave many in despairs and great agonies. Earthquakes shall arise in diverse places causing much causalities and damages.

In the eventful morning of 3rd December 2004, while in a midst of a worship service at a meeting in Indonesia, I saw an angel of glory, dressed in golden shining garment and wearing a “sultan” headdress. He came, took out a golden sword, and pierced deeply into the middle part of the hall where the worship was conducted. A spring then gushed forth and the angelic being, who is the angel of Indonesia, looked intently at me saying, “Revival has started in the spirit realm today.” After this encounter, I declared boldly in the afternoon that “revival has started today in Indonesia.” The next day, while going to the hall where the meeting was held, Charlie saw a large billboard outside a cinema which says “Revival December 3.” It was indeed a remarkable sign from God that revival has actually taken place. In the midst of all these, I also saw another angel named Revival on its way to Canada to ignite revival fires all over that region.

On the 29th December 2004, the Lord impressed these thoughts to me: “Our destiny is far greater than our disaster.” Our futures are bright and glorious in the light of the coming prospect of revivals in Asia. Indeed, beyond the natural tragedies, God is about to pour forth a new measure of fresh anointing upon His chosen vessels in order to fulfil the end-times mandates and commissions of heaven. It is time to raise our expectations and blow the trumpets declaring that the tidal waves of glory and revival fires are coming to the camp of God’s people!

This earthquake in Indonesia was measured 9.0 on the Richter scale. The Lord then whispered “Psalm 90” to me. “Thou shalt swept them away like a flood. They fall asleep …” (Ps 90: 5). This is parallel to the huge tsunami that swept the regions of South and South East Asia. Yet twice in the scriptures it says (in verses 5 and 6) that “in the morning they are like grass [humanity] which sprouts anew. In the morning it flourishes, and sprout anew…” The Bright and Morning Star shall shine brightly in Asia and the great outpourings of glory that sprouts resurrection life shall fall globally! Unprecedented waves of lost souls-harvest are sweeping across the seas of humanity!

Also, in verses 14 and 17 of Psalm 90 it says: “O satisfy us in the morning with thy lovingkindness (chesed, favour) that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days; and let the favour (noam, pleasantness or favour) of the Lord our God be upon us; and do confirm for us the work of our hands; yes, confirm the works of our hands.” A new season of divine activities, releasing great favour of God is descending upon planet earth. Let us not dwell over the losses and setbacks but rejoice prophetically over the favour of the Lord that is coming into the lives of God’s people!

In the Year 2005, we shall witness the overflowing measures of the river of favour over Christendom.

This earthquake was the largest in past 40 years. The number 40 has great prophetic significance. Firstly, it signifies a generation. (see Num 32:13; Josh 5:6). Forty years ago in 1964, the spirit of prophecy was sounding a new decree that a new move of God shall flourished on the earth. This was later known as the “Charismatic Movement”. On the 27th March 1964, at around 5.36pm (Alaskan time), the largest recorded earthquake in America measuring 9.2 on the Richter scale hit the Alaskan coast of North Prince William Sound (epicentre). This great quake lasted about 4 to 5 minutes and was felt over 500,000 miles. It generated a series of tidal waves with some measuring 34.5 feet in height which crashed into the Alaskan coastlines, destroying countless boats and homes. It took 115 lives and caused US$84 million worth of property damages (in Alaska alone).

Soon afterward, numerous small rural churches throughout the region experienced a fresh outpouring of revival fires. This sudden outpouring of the Holy Spirit spread swiftly throughout Oregon and down into California. The holy Spirit did a deep work in an Episcopal St. Luke church in Seattle, igniting a holy fire upon an Episcopal rector named Dennis Bennett, the former pastor of St. Mark’s Episcopal church in Van Nuys. Contemporary Church history now indicated that Bennett was instrumental in the birthing of the Charismatic Renewal.

The year 2005 signifies the end of the 40 years of wandering in the wildness. By the might of His great grace, we shall cross over to the Promised Land to fulfil end-times destiny and the fullness of God’s purposes. For in the beginning of the year 2002, the Lord whispered to my inner man that 2005 is the year of the crossing – the crossing over from barrenness to bountifulness in the graces of God!
