Chinese Homecoming 2016
The three parables told by Jesus in Luke 15- the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son- are truly the best expression of the core messages in the Gospel.
Luke 15:20 KJV
“And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.”
"When he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.” Four actions of a longing father for his lost son was described in this short verse which fully depicts Heavenly Father's love for us.
Over a hundred years ago, by the will of God, Chinese were led to live in different regions of the world. From human perspectives, it could just be by chance or a history development. However, it is by the hands of God for His eternal plan.
It won’t be an easy journey for Christians from different people groups of Greater China and overseas to go back to the Father’s heart and to become one. They have to overcome obstacles coming from different cultures, political views, geography, languages, theologies, denominations and church traditions. Nevertheless, such differences can not stop the will of our Father. When the fullness of His time comes, our Heavenly Father will activate His End Time plan among the people groups of Greater China and overseas Chinese. Over 10 years ago, He began to call the Chinese home from all over the world, so they would return to the warm embrace of our Father, enjoy His presence, and receive His heart.
In the last few years, more than ten thousands of people from Greater China and overseas gathered together in Hong Kong to worship, pray, listen to the Word of the Lord, and follow the Spirit. No one limited the work of the Spirit and all honored the Father as our Lord and our King. All of a sudden, all the obstacles that came from our differences in politics, geography, language, culture, theology, denomination and church tradition collapsed. Hearts were melted because of the love of our Heavenly Father.
In early January 2016, a group of Great China and overseas leaders gathered at the Noah's Ark in Hong Kong. We sought the Lord in one accord for the destiny of the Chinese. After 2 days of worship, prayers, sharing, and seeking together, we came to realize that our Father is calling for another gathering. On 13-16 July 2016, Hong Kong will once again become the womb for His will, so that all Chinese, regardless from overseas, Mainland China, Taiwan, Macau or from different people groups, shall “come home” again with the family of nations. We long to return to His presence and His heart, and let Him speak to us.
Please pray about it. If the Holy Spirit prompts you to come, we welcome you with all our hearts. Together, we will "come home"!
