What a joy it is to fulfill the plan of God for our lives! I am amazed at the goodness of the Lord and the wisdom He has given to us. I thank you for your prayers and the significant seeds you have sown towards the first phase of our mandate from the Lord. I want you to know that your prayers of agreement and generosity are making a difference, both in what He has called us to do in this new territory and for what you are asking from the Lord. We are so grateful for your faithfulness and generosity.
I want to report that so far we have received $12,500 towards the first phase of our $100,000 goal. Also, there are $67,000 pledges that have been made and we are standing in faith and expectation with those who have made them! We believe that the Lord will honor their faith and that they will receive the significant seed they desire to sow towards amplifying freedom in the Farsi-speaking nations.
Since my last letter (If you didn’t get an opportunity to review the last update, click here to review), the Lord has been amazing us with surprises. As I shared with you previously, we are planning to quickly establish our offices and studio in a temporary location, until we are able to locate the right facility for our ministry. I want you to know, this ministry is not about buildings, it is about a people that God loves and have yet to hear the Gospel. This is about extending freedom to those who don’t know what freedom is, or as it is better said, “who” freedom is.
Since we arrived in Irvine, California June 2014, the Lord has been confirming our mandate over and over through both His written Word and prophetic words and dreams. Thank God His Word is a firm foundation to stand on!
Recently, my real estate agent called me and wanted to show me several buildings. Most of them were practically empty shells that we would have to completely build out. I expressed to him that we are more interested in something that wouldn’t require much work. He said, “You know there is a building available that I wasn’t sure you would be interested in it or not, because it is a ISLAMIC CENTER! It’s owner has fallen behind in payment and the bank is planning to take away the building from him.” The moment I heard Islamic Center, something just leaped in my heart and I told him, lets go to look at it! When we arrived to look at it, we could only peak through the windows. However, I notice on the glass doors the name Mahdiyeh. Mahdiyeh is like a mosque but more specifically like an Islamic training center for those who are expecting the coming of Mahdi (The false messiah of Islam).
It took us over a month to be able to get inside to see if it would work for us. When we finally got in, the building was exactly what we are looking for to start this TV network. It is 6,400 s.f. with a 3,200 s.f. auditorium, which will serve as our broadcasting studio and the remainder as our offices. We would be taking over the temple of a false god! The Lord has given me this Word, in conjunction with the dreams and visions, Isaiah 41:15-16, “Behold, I have made you into a new threshing sledge with many sharp teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and beat them small,and make the hills like chaff. You shall winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them; you shall rejoice in the Lord, and glory in the Holy One of Israel.” I encourage you to read the remaining 13 verses and you’ll notice that the context of the entire prophetic word is talking about false religion and false gods.
To date, the Lord has given me three significant dreams confirming the importance of our ministry for such a time as this, the Farsi speaking Muslims we are to reach and significance of this building. I have been pondering on these events and asking the Lord to guide me with His wisdom. On September 4, 2014, while I was praying, my phone rang, it was my real estate agent. He was calling to tell me that something is happening with the building. The bank was going to auction off the building on September 10. He said we could stop the auction by making an offer to the bank that would cover what is owed on the building ($1.4 Million). The building is being marketed and worth $2 Million. There has been a total of $2.6 million invested in this building since they purchased it.
I have shared this information with our board, our Pastor and some of our trusted advisors. They are praying with us for wisdom and favor. The Lord has given us an offer price and has confirmed it through more than one source. The day of the auction, I was talking to the Lord and entrusting this whole thing to Him. A couple of hours later, I heard from my agent, who had gone to the auction on our behalf to observe the situation. My agent said to me that the owners had filed bankruptcy and that the bank had to postpone the auction to October 22, 2014.
I believe the Lord is working on our behalf and giving us time to seize this amazing opportunity. So what more shall I say about this, “If God is for us who can be against us! (Rom. 8:31)
I am expecting to have the remaining $87.5k by the end of this September. Would you please stand with us in prayer and ask the Lord what your part is in this amazing opportunity? I have asked everyone to ask God for something beyond their natural ability or means, something that the Lord Himself would have to provide for you to sow. Something that would touch God’s heart and move Him on your behalf for what you are expecting Him in your life.
Look at 2 Corinthians 8:1, “Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: 2 that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality. 3 For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and BEYOND their ability, they were freely willing, 4 imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. 5 And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.”
I am calling this a supernatural seed for a supernatural harvest! All you have to do is ask Him to show you the seed that is above your natural means and ability and He will provide it for you. Thank you for your kindness and partnership. As you sow your supernatural seed, please let us know what you are expecting God to do for you. May be it is healing of your body, or a financial situation, or restoration of a relationship, whatever it is, please be specific and we will agree with you for your supernatural harvest. We love you and praise God for your involvement in fulfilling Biblical prophecy with us.
