The covenant made was from the oath Ruth made with Naomi. But Ruth said: “Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The LORD do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me.” (‭Ruth‬ ‭1‬:‭16-17‬ NKJV)

Even though the Messianic leaders thought it might be dry for the repentance, you can hear the power of the Holy Spirit working in the people's heart to bring them back to the Lord - the descents of Issac and Ishmael.
The leaders of Messianic Jews stood on stage to pray for the Body of Christ. The Servant team stood in the back to support. 1. The leaders confessed for their giving of impression of better than others. They felt this is one of the main poisons poisons the root of the Olive tree that the Gentile Church is crafted in. 2. Their identity and customs have become their idol that hindered them and others from knowing Christ. 3. They felt others need to learn about Israel before they can connect. They asked for forgiveness from God.
David Demian called upon the Chinese to release their burden for the return of the Lord for the land of Israel!
There is a longing for the return of the Lord in the worship this morning. The Spirit and His Bride are uniting together to seek the will of the Bridegroom.

God shared His heart of Canada bring the healing to the nations to David and challenged him for his heart toward the nation. It would be in vain if God didn't work. God wants His heart and will to be done in the nations. He cried out to the Lord to WATCH for the nation so that the judgement of God will not come to Canada. The Lord showed to David with the situation of his son that "it is not an issue of delay but life and death."

耶路撒冷市區 Streets of Jerusalem
The first Chinese, then German, than Japanese, then Asian to stand up to respond to the call of God to be the bonds servant for whatever the Lord wanted to do in this day and time.
The Lord have a prophetic vision in April, 2013. There were 2 armies. One is the army of the Lord and was ready. The other is the Enemy's army and was ready as well. The Lord and the Devil were the leaders of their armies. It was about the battle that is about to come, but the result is determined. The Lord draw a sword and hit the bull's eye for the armies to clash. The Lord said that when He took Japan back, it would be the sign to signify the end was here. 2015 will be the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and it will be the 400th anniversary of killing the missionary. The head will have no power without a body. We are here for the Lord. We don't look at ourselves, but look to the Lord.
The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!" It is not who initiated the cry, but a divine alignment between the Bride and the Spirit. When it is the fullness of time, it will take place. We actually stayed in the place where John the Baptist was born. Jesus is the only God/prophet that is alive today among all the religions in the world today. In faith, we saw the promises before time. The preparation of Japan didn't have enough time, but it was just right before ISIS declared their Celipha. It was declared in Babylon, but the Lord said that he would do it from Jerusalem. The meeting is to declare God's will in this time. The Lord talked about yeast for the whole dough. The yeast is the Asian Church. 1111 is the time to declare God's purpose. Jesus wanted us to pray that "Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on the earth as it is in heaven." We need to be able to release heaven from the earth. We would be baptized in a new love that came from the Lord during this gathering.
It is the first time in the past 25 years to see people from the nations God so fervently without an agenda. More than our passion for Him is His passion to be with us.
Call upon the Lord, "come Lord Jesus," to settle the disputes and to end the war.
The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the LORD’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, And rebuke many people; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore. O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the LORD. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭2‬:‭1-5‬ NKJV)
The shout of 11:11 It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭11‬:‭11‬ NKJV) He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭11‬:‭12‬ NKJV) The government of God is a government of peace which Everyone will be blessed in it. 1111 is the time of divine alignment for God's people to declare their alignment with Him.
Kadosh Atah (Holy are You)~
Baruch Haba B'shem Adonai (blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; ㄧ切歌頌讚美) became the theme for what the Lord desired to do this morning.

Rick Ridings shared about his vision of coming together.
A Jewish brother, Masala shared the promised from Isaiah 19:23-24. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭19‬:‭23-24‬ NIV) The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.” (‭Isaiah‬ ‭19‬:‭25‬ NIV) When the tribes walked together, God will release His blessings.
The Arab brother repented on stage how they were hurt and would not forgive the Jews.
David Demian shared about the purpose of nations gathered together to see the Jews and Arabs embracing each other.
During the pre-gathering, Jewish leaders stood on the stage to reconcile with the Arabic leaders. He shared from the story of Jacob apologizing to his older brother Esau when he returned from Param so that they can have peace among them.
