THE “HASTA QUE”
   MESSAGE
      “UNTIL”
    Isaiah 62:7
       “TIL’

                  2
  WHAT IS THE PRIMARY TASK
    OF THE WATCHEMN?
• Isaiah 62:6-7 I have posted watchmen on
  your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be
  silent day or night. You who call on the
  LORD, give yourselves no rest,
• 7 and give him no rest till he establishes
  Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the
  earth.


                                            3
          HE IS LOOKING
      AT THIS VERY MOMENT
• Ezekiel 22:30
• I sought for a man among them who would
  make a wall, and stand in the gap before
  Me on behalf of the land, that I should not
  destroy it; but I found no one.




                                            4
  JEOL’S MESSSAGE IS FOR
    EVERY GENERATION
• Joel 1
• 3 Tell it to your children, and let your
  children tell it to their children, and their
  children to the next generation.




                                                  5
  GETTING KNOWLEDGE OVER
         THE YEARS
• George Stoneystreet
• After putting together and fixing a 747 for
  30 years he decides to retire.
• “No Way” his bosses say. You know too
  much for us to let you retire!




                                                6
       DO WE WANT THIS?
• First we must desire it.
• Desiring and earnestly seeking to learn
  how to pray.
• Luke 11:1 One day Jesus was praying in a
  certain place.
• When he finished, one of his disciples said
  to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as
  John taught his disciples.”
                                            7
        TESTIMONY OF JULIUS
           FROM UGANDA
• This is the testimony that I would like to give to you
  about my country of Uganda. My name is Julius Suubi
  and I was born in Uganda in 1973. I had 28 brothers and
  sisters from my polygamous father who had five wives
  and many concubines. I grew up in a family that
  worshipped idols. Between 1988 and 1993, twelve of my
  brothers and sisters and many of my cousins died of
  Aids. This is my testimony of the revival in Uganda.




                                                        8
          THE WARNINGS
• Immediately after president Museveni took
  over from Lutwa on the 25th of January of
  1986 there were some prophets that came
  from Kenya telling the Ugandan’s to
  repent. If they did not repent there was a
  severe judgment that was going to come
  upon the nation and almost every
  household would be affected by it. But we
  did not listen to them.
                                           9
     A STRANGE SICKNESS
• A new democratic government had just
  taken over and people were filled with
  hope and expectation for the future. We
  were not ready to receive a message
  about judgment. But even before the end
  of 1986 there was a strange sickness that
  many people began suffering from.


                                              10
         ONE OUT OF FOUR
               HIT
• The symptoms were totally new. At first we
  thought that it was witchcraft and many
  people rushed to witch doctors for help.
  These men would get rich by telling them
  that they would be cured by eating the
  liver of a dog or sleeping with a virgin. The
  situation worsened and by 1989 out of
  every four Ugandans one was HIV
  positive.
                                             11
              SOME TOWNS
             WERE WIPED OUT
• In some districts it was catastrophic. In some homes,
  people died and there was no one to bury them. They
  rotted in their homes. In the district of Rakai almost
  everyone above 20 years of age died of Aids. Young
  children were left without parents. In fact to this day
  Uganda has a great number of orphans and street
  children.




                                                            12
          GOD CALLS A MAN
• In 1992, Deo Balabyekubo, one of Uganda’s pastors
  who was in Canada visiting the Toronto Blessing, saw a
  vision of a big snake over the nation of Uganda. Every
  time the snake opened its mouth it swallowed many
  people. God spoke to him, “That was the spirit behind
  HIV.” If HIV was to be eradicated from Uganda then the
  church had to pay a price in prayer. So he encouraged
  many people in Toronto to pray for Uganda.




                                                       13
        “THE CRAZY MAN”
• Towards the end of 1992 the Lord told him
  to come back to Uganda. The church
  needed to repent and pray for their land.
  Before he arrived he sent messages to all
  the media houses that God had given the
  church an answer for HIV. Most of them
  thought that he was crazy and they turned
  up at the airport to meet “The Crazy Man”.


                                           14
A GREAT INITIAL RESPONSE
• When he arrived he called the pastors,
  churches and intercessors for prayer.
  They began a period of fasting and prayer
  for 40 days with the promise that at the
  end of the 40 days people would get
  healed of HIV. The response was huge
  due to the fact that almost everyone in the
  nation had a brother, a sister or friend who
  was sick of Aids or who had already died.
                                             15
 GREAT DISCOURAGEMENT
• Every day from morning to evening people
  would come to Kibuye Prayer Palace to
  pray. But after 40 days nobody was
  healed. People were very discouraged.
  But Pastor Deo said God had told him that
  the church should continue for another 40
  days of fasting and prayer. Because of
  their discouragement this next round of
  prayer saw a much reduced number of
  people fasting and praying.
                                          16
          RUTH BIRABWA
• Many said that Pastor Deo was lying. They
  finished the second period of 40 days and
  once again, nobody was healed. Everyone
  was incensed. But this did not discourage
  Pastor Deo. He announced another round
  of 40 days of fasting and prayer. This time
  he had to go it alone. By then he had lost
  a lot of weight! At the end of this time, on
  the very last day Ruth Birabwa was in the
  meeting.
                                            17
           THE BEGINNING
• She was lying on a bed in the very last stages of
  HIV. If she drank even water it would just pass
  through her. She was prayed for and the Lord
  healed her. Immediately she received the
  strength to get up and walk. Pastor Deo
  encouraged her to go and get a blood test. She
  came back and the test was negative,- she was
  truly healed. Today she is one of Uganda’s
  leading women pastors and God is using her
  mightily in healing others. This was the genesis
  of mass healings in many churches throughout
  the county.

                                                  18
                   HARVEST
• Pastor Deo announced healing meetings for the next 90
  days. These meetings drew the biggest crowds in the
  history of the church in Uganda. Every day almost
  30,000 people showed up. Many people were healed
  and saved from all walks of life. Many Muslims came to
  the Lord during this time. One of them, Sheik Umaru,
  was one of the teachers in the Mosque in Kampala City.
  He had a head ache for about twenty years.




                                                       19
  KEY INDIVIDUALS ARE SAVED
• So on one of the days he came to the meetings
  to observe what was taking place. When Pastor
  Deo told the people to touch where the pain was
  he did so and was totally healed. When the
  following day he had no more head aches he
  knew that the God that Deo was talking about
  was real and so he gave his life to Jesus. Today
  he moves around all over Uganda having
  meetings to reach out to the Muslims and many
  have been converted. He runs the most popular
  noon time radio program in the nation.
                                                 20
      IT BECOMES A NATIONAL
           PHENOMENON
• Both Christians and non Christians love to listen to it
  because of the incredible miracles that God is
  performing though him. When Pastor Deo began
  ministering, the Islamic Faith was a great force because
  Idi Amin had converted Uganda into a nation of Islam.
  But after the revival over 80 per cent of the country
  became Christian. In fact some of the leading spiritual
  leaders of Kampala City were former Muslims.




                                                         21
    IT DOES NOT DEPEND ON
           ONE MAN
• One sad note about the revival is this.
  People began to idolize pastor Deo in a
  way that is not good. In 1995 as he was
  going to organize some healing meetings
  in Jinja Town a Lori rammed into his car
  and he was instantly killed. But the revival
  continued and many were ignited to enter
  into their ministries during these years.

                                             22
 UNDENIABLE MIRACLES THAT
   INFLUENCE THE NATION
• Today in the Prayer Palace there is a choir
  of over 80 people called “The Lazarus
  Choir”. Every one of them have been
  healed of AIDS. According to CNN
  Uganda has the least number of HIV
  people in the whole of Africa. It is hailed as
  one of the success stories in a continent
  ravished by AIDS. Many other African
  nations have sent people to our country to
  learn how we did it.
                                              23
HEED THE WARNINGS CHURCH
• Amos 3:7 says “ Surely the Sovereign
  LORD does nothing without revealing his
  plan to his servants the prophets.” We
  Ugandans went through all that because
  we did not heed the warnings from the
  prophets of God.



                                            24
             THE TERRIBLE
           “COMFORT ZONE”
• God’s judgments have never been his
  preferred method of awakening people to
  seek Him. But many times He has been
  forced to use that because when people
  get into their comfort zone it is difficult for
  them to hear His warnings and repent.
• Julius Suubi

     A VISION CONCERNING
      MALAYSIA (22-03-07)
• I saw a powerful river rumbling and
  breaking up everything in its path.
• There were many people crying. The Lord
  said there are two paths for Malaysia.
  There was a map of Malaysia with some
  chains and locks on it.



                                        26
                     VISION
                   CONTINUED
• If the church would call on the Lord fervently the locks
  would fall off and a beautiful river would flow and
  fountains would spring up to other nations.
• If the church does not pray more locks were placed on
  the map and there was much wailing and a loss of
  freedom for the churches.
• The cousin spirit became violent.
