In 2003, God revealed to me to re-dig the old wells. “And Isaac dug again the wells of water which they had dug in the days of Abraham.” (Genesis 26:18-22). He made it plain and simple that this will be a New Work, Quick Work and an Anointed Work.
What is this New, Quick and Anointed Work?
In 2007, FGB Gatekeepers Singapore leadership fasted and prayed and met to see the Vision a second time. (Jeremiah 1:10-13). In 1992, Demos Shakarian, Founder of FGBMFI had also written a booklet entitled ‘The Vision Intensifies: A New Wave of Revival.’ I believe he was also seeing the Vision a second time…original vision 1952; original plus Vision Intensifies 1992.
We were thrilled to see the alignment of our FGB Gatekeepers Vision and Mission Statements and that of the combined 1952 and 1992 Demos’ vision.
Below are FGB Gatekeepers Vision Statements, followed by Demos’ Vision (in italics) aligned to our Mission Statements:
FGB Gatekeepers Singapore is a body of believers
- Evangelise: Reach Men and Women in all nations for Jesus Christ (Mass Conversion)
- Empowered by the Holy Spirit (Unprecedented outpouring of the Holy Spirit)
- Baptize believers with the Holy Spirit and Fire
- To transform the culture of nations
- Through discipling men and women
- Equip: Train and disciple believers to fulfill the Great Commission (People Prepared to Participate in His Plan)
- Enlarge: Multiply disciples and enlarge our reach and spheres of influence For the work of the Kingdom of God
- Extend: Establish and advance the Kingdom of God in the marketplace, cities and nations (World of Peoples and Nations)
According to Demos, the Original 1952 Vision is not over and yet not complete. The Vision Intensifies complements and completes the Original Vision Demos declared: “The Vision God revealed to me in 1952 is being fulfilled, BUT IT IS NOT OVER! The Lord God Jehovah is ready to explode a New Wave of Revival in this world. He wants you PREPARED TO PARTICIPATE IN HIS PLAN (VI, Page 11)
It is time to get your eyes off the past! It is time to stop talking about how much we had accomplished and start prayerfully seeking God on WHAT HE WANTS TO DO NOW and WHAT HE WANTS FOR THE FUTURE (VI, Page 13)
A fresh move of His anointing is upon us! But there is greater anointing of power and of the Holy Spirit still to come (VI, Page 22)
God has shown me a World Set Free— a World where men and women are not alone, but are united in the love of Jesus Christ, arms raised to heaven, praising and adoring Him. (VI, Page 23)
But you might say “But Demos, how can this be? FGBMFI was a good idea, and God has blessed it. BUT THE WORLD, Yes, the World (VI, Page 23)
Right now, in closing, I ask you to start your preparation for the FUTURE by saying this prayer, out loud, to our Almighty God, today…
Heavenly Father, we thank you for all you have done through our lives and through our ministry of the fellowship. But whatever has been accomplished to date …we know it is only a glimmer, a glimpse of the future, of what is still to be done through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father, forgive us if sometimes our eyes have focused on men, on chapter, or on buildings. We ask that you will help us FOCUS ONLY ON YOU and Your MANDATES FOR OUR LIVES. (VI, Page 25)
Focusing on Jesus and His mandate are keys to advancing His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
Jesus only mandate, His Great Commission is to “Go and Make Disciples of All Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all this that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen (Matthew 28:19-20)
