Post # 33 – HEALING of the NATIONS – AN INTERNATIONAL FORUM
Isaiah 61:1-4 makes it clear that the mission of the Messiah would include the inner healing of the nations. This Messianic prophecy written in 600 B.C. foretold that part of Jesus’ Gospel would be to bind up the brokenhearted and set captives free. Isaiah also foretold that this healing, beginning in His homeland, would multiply outward to the nations through His wounded healers. Look at Isaiah 61:4: And they (the one’s He has set free) shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.
Google Blogs makes it possible for me to see the primary countries that are viewing the Listening to God Forum. It’s extremely exciting to be part of a movement, isn’t it! According to Google, there have been nearly 12,000 visits by people from every continent to the Blog (except Antarctica) since its’ inception in mid September of 2011.
The top ten visiting counties to the Blog are:
4. United Kingdom
Other countries that have visited the Blog: Argentina, Cameroon, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, India, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and Zimbabwe. It’s possible that you’ve visited the Blog and your country was mistakenly not listed. Sorry to have left you out. Let me know and I’ll make the correction.
I’d like to ask you to help convert the Listening to God Forum into a place of international dialogue where individuals from every nation, language, race, culture and ethnicity can share stories with one another regarding what we are seeing, learning, experiencing, and yearning for in the area of listening and inner-healing prayer. For those who have read and studied A Guide for Listening and Inner-Healing Prayer, the forum could also be a place for sharing where God met us most profoundly, things we really like about the book, areas we’d like more input on, and suggestions for the second edition.
I have a dream / vision that people from Moldova could share what God is doing in the listening and healing realm with the people of Chile, that individuals in Russia could encourage people in Saudi Arabia. Wouldn’t it be helpful to somehow connect with others in your country or city that are seeking to engage in this important area of spiritual growth and development? My desire is that this Blog would become an international community for people around the globe who listen to the voice of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as a foundation to life … and who experience the inner healing of the broken places of the heart that are a result of growing up in a fallen and dysfunctional world.
I urge you to click on the comment button at the end of this post to share where you live. I'd love to know how you came across the Blog and any details you'd like to share about your journey. You can do this anonymously, give us a “user name,” or if you feel free to do so, your real name. If you do comment, what you write will not appear immediately. It will be sent to me to prevent scams of any kind. I will “publish” it within 24 hours and follow any instructions you give me. If you can’t figure out how to make a post, email me directly at L2G.Forum@gmail.com. Let’s see if together we can’t connect hundreds of listeners from every continent and most nations into an international healing network.
