During the recent transition between June and July, Malaysia was blessed with a supernatural encounter healing rally with Guillermo Maldonado. Thousands of people, even non-believers, were healed from ailments that they had to previously carry for years. But the Bible also teaches us to seek the Healer and not just the healing. It also teaches us to love the Church as the local Body of Christ.
Beyond the outward signs and wonders, what were the truly important legacies that the Malaysian church had gained through this remarkable event? In a sharing by one of the organisers of the event with Christianity Malaysia, he shared a few of his hopes.
He shared that he believed that this is a watershed moment for the Malaysian Church, not just because of the miracles but because it taught the Church and reminded it of some important truths. Among these is that of the lesson of unity:
‘The build-up of events – putting the teams together, casting the vision, local churches/pastors/leaders coming together, getting permits, raising funds, getting volunteers & participants, the training of ushers & counsellors, etc.. I cannot help but think of Psalms 133 and that we have experienced a measure of its power and manifestation and another level of anointing.’
A total of 250 churches participated in the event, an unprecedented number that went beyond the usual paradigm of local congregations. 60,000 people in total attended, salvations and rededication of lives back to God numbering in the thousands. Most importantly, the Church putting aside differences, programmes, and offences, and going beyond church walls and Sunday meetings. The lesson of unity in diversity.
It also taught us to carry the responsibility as Christ’s ambassadors for our nation, to feel and carry the burden of the Lord for our nation; to love this country and its people. Beyond believing for physical and emotional healings, also believing and praying for the healing of this land.
Thousands of people prayed for the blessing of God to fall on this nation, its citizens and government, desiring a greater country that is prospering in every facet imaginable. Along with this came an acceleration to build national prayer altars, a call to intercede for the nation.
‘This event has also showed us that when we engage people in authority positively, they can hear and respond favourably. It challenged us to think bigger, pray larger prayers and to be more determined to ask God to open up the heavens over the Klang Valley and beyond, even unto Sabah and Sarawak. It stirred us to see the harvest fields and the Church’s prophetic destiny manifest.
‘The Church, as One, can come together as His bride, His redemptive people, manifesting Psalms 133, to embrace a new anointing for a new day, to break the yoke of every bondage by the spiritual enemies upon our land.’
A song of ascents. Of David.
1 How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity!
2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
down on the collar of his robe.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
even life forevermore.
