Our first Celebration as Pisgah HOP in newly restored Pisgah Chapel
We were given the go ahead to meet as Pisgah House of Prayer in the newly renovated Pisgah Chapel on this evening on 25th June 2016.
50 people showed up met who had attended Pisgah HOP meetings and had prayed for revival over the last 5 years.
On Friday the 26th of May 2017 at 6:30 for 7pm we will be meeting at Pisgah Chapel in Loughor for a time of Prayer, thanksgiving, praise and worship. (SUBJECT TO CONFIRMATION)
This will be our first meeting in 2017 in the newly restored Pisgah Chapel. The meeting will finish at 9pm then there will be half an hour for tea and chat.
When we pray according to God's will He hears us and will grant our requests. We want to see a great awakening in Wales and the UK. We want to see that all men will come into the knowledge and relationship of Jesus Christ our Saviour and King.
March 12th 2016 Woodstock Chapel, Pembrokeshire
What a brilliant day we had in Abergavenny on the day before Pentecost when Emyr, Diane and friends from West Wales and further afield came to Abergavenny, the so called ‘Gateway to Wales’, with the Cross.
We had planned to take the Cross to the edge of the Blorenge (the purple headed mountain in All Things Bright and Beautiful!) and worship there, then have a family picnic in the castle grounds. This would be followed by a procession through town to end with a thanksgiving service and refreshments at the Baptist church.
At 9am there was only a handful of folks parked on the Blorenge in low cloud and drizzle but as we got underway we had 21 walkers, including a blind lady with her guide dog and several folk from West Wales who had made the journey to join us. Many of these people helped to carry the Cross and found the experience deeply moving. The Cross was clearly visible from the town and we worshipped and declared Scripture, proclaiming the presence of the great I Am and Jesus as King of kings. We blessed the town to have its gates wide open that the King of Glory may come in and that the town would reflect the Kingdom of love, peace and joy.
The shofar a were sounded over the town and over the Usk Valley – thank you to shofar blowers Keith Williams and Andy Morris for coming so far to join us. What we did on the mountain was spiritually very significant.
As we came down from the mountain the sun came out and the weather was glorious, thank you Lord! The castle grounds were the perfect spot for the youngsters to play and picnic and, again, a significant place for us to witness – a dark place where there has been much prayer in the past for the spilling of blood and the breaking of covenants.
After lunch Emyr, with the Cross, was accompanied by a good number of people, quite a few waving banners, from the different churches in town and from further afield. There was a brief stop in Red Square in the centre of town when Bryn Yemm took over the busker’s microphone to announce the lordship of Jesus and then the procession continued through the crowds to Abergavenny Baptist Church where we praised the Lord outside before going into the church ahead of schedule.
With time to fill we heard three awesome testimonies of what God was doing in peoples’ lives before ending the afternoon with worship together and testimony from Emyr. There was a great buzz of unity in Christ over the refreshments and there have been very many positive comments both from the church folk and the unchurched. We were truly blessed in so many ways and we look forward to supporting the progress of the Cross as Emyr walks from St David’s to Snowdon in September.
Thanks to all who supported the day and above all to our mighty God who went ahead of us to prepare the way. The word we had for the day was that the the Lord was about to do a mighty thing in the land (a thing to make the ears tingle AMP) 1 Samuel 3:11, so we are waiting with great expectancy to see how His purposes are fulfilled.
We celebrated the manifestation of the following verses of scripture given to us in 2009:-
Isaiah 59:12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings and
Isaiah 49:8,9 'In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘be free!’
Of the 50 present 30 were under 30 years old. There was a Korean group of worshipping Christians 10 or so, called the Celebration mobile team, Greg from Milford Haven of 'Declare His Glory' and a few of us locals leading worship together.
After a period of exhuberant worship and praise about what God had done, we brought out to the front the two young ladies who are assigned to running Pisgah Chapel on behalf of the Bible College of Wales. We asked the young people of Wales and the young people of Korea and any of the young people present to pray for them and each other.
There was such an IGNITION by the Holy Spirit resulting in weeping, praying, crying out, expressions of joy, shouting, and spontaneous singing and praise which ignited all those present.
Greg from Milford sang a song he had written called 'You are Revival', this added to the fuel poured out on the meeting. We continued for some hours that evening.
Gail from Nations spoke on Psalm 110:3 3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.
This was evidenced by what happened as we met together that God was confirming His promises to us as Pisgah HOP that the youth would come like the dew. Many many youth would come ready for battle in the 'Day of His Power'!
This completion of the 'restoration in the natural' Pisgah Chapel Celebration meeting gave us such encouragement to press on to see the 'restoration of the streets with dwellings!' in the spiritual realm and the natural realm as in Isaiah 58:12
We witnessed a demonstration of His power in the Supernatural realm confirming the sign of the natural restoration of this temple/chapel/place of His habitation.
Meeting with David and Josie Silver of OUT OF ZION MINISTRIES.
We were priveledged to lead worship in Carmarthen at Bethel Church where 500 gathered to worship the King. There was an amazing presence of God in the room and the worship just kept risinf to the Lord in waves from His people.
Truly worshipping like that just invited the presence of God and many wept and were met by the Lord.
Josie gave some teaching on worship which epitomised the worship time we had just participated in. It all fit together as led by the Holy Spirit. If we were to continue to worship like that then revival would definately come.
Prayer arose as incense to the Lord's nostrils and we heard that He was 'Well Pleased and happy with the fragrance from this place'.
David shared on the end times as related to the Jewish people and Israel and what we should be doing and should be mindful of as Christian Spirit filled believers.
We were greatly encouraged.
