Urgent Prayer Dispatch for the ‘Lost Sheep Community Vision’ – February 2020

Dear friends of AoE,

We are witnessing a phenomenal escalation of events around the world. Britain is still staggering after the political tsunami of Brexit. Floods, fires and extreme weather conditions prevail, war is looming once again between Israel and Gaza and Coronavirus and Influenza are affecting and killing hundreds of thousands of people, affecting the stock markets and global economies. Unprecedented quarantine conditions are being forced on citizens where whole cities are being sealed off. Paranoia and hysteria, are being fuelled, we believe, by the media and in addition the real numbers of infection are not being revealed. Medical sources believe that the vaccine will not be available till the end of the year.

This message is not intended to focus your attention upon these events and neither is it declaring that the end of the world is nigh and that the Messiah is about to return.

It is to draw your attention to the message Father YHVH has given us and one that we have been called to emphasise and teach the body of Messiah. Our message has always been one that seeks to sound the alarm and help facilitate the preparation of the YHVH’s people in readiness for the times ahead.

YHVH’s message and plan for us is to come out from the system of the world.

2 Corinthians 6:
14 Do not yoke yourselves together in a team with unbelievers. For how can righteousness and lawlessness be partners? What fellowship does light have with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between the Messiah and B’liya‘al? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement can there be between the temple of YHVH and idols? For we are the temple of the living YHVH — as YHVH said,
“I will house myself in them, . . .
and I will walk among you.
I will be their YHVH,
and they will be my people.”
17 Therefore Adonai says,
“‘Go out from their midst;
separate yourselves;
don’t even touch what is unclean.
Then I myself will receive you.
18 In fact, I will be your Father,
and you will be my sons and daughters.’
says Adonai-Tzva’ot.”

The system of Babylon is embedded in the cultures of nations and powers in this world and in the supernatural realm seeks to re-establish that system on a global level. The goals are disguised and the language used is engaging because it uses the rhetoric of faith.

The establishment of community, of which many in the body are seeking now, is a move of the Holy Spirit. It reflects the aspects of YHVH’s Heavenly Kingdom. It calls upon every believer to emulate a life of holiness, distinct from the culture of the world. Our passage in 2 Corinthians tells us that when we make a decision to live such a life, YHVH will welcome and receive us. We must also understand that YHVH actually seals this command with His war name, ‘Adonai Tzva’ot.’

Many of YHVH’s people today are hearing the call to come and do something about attaining a way of life that reflects this paradigm. In the life of this ministry, AoE has heard the desires of many to answer this call.

Father YHVH, has given us the opportunity to purchase a property here in the UK. The property is perfect for the goals He has given us. It will be a place of worship reflected in the life and projects on the homestead. The land will be self sustaining, providing Eco systems, live stock and energy. It will be a sanctuary for care, respite and a place of teaching and discipleship.

What has been offered to us can only come from the hand of YHVH. We had visited the homestead estate before and remarked how wonderful it would be if we could hold the feast celebrations on the land. It cannot be a coincidence that this property came up for sale and was drawn to our attention.

Friends, now to the serious point of this letter. YHVH wants us to purchase this homestead outright. We are not to owe anyone anything, so that means we cannot have a mortgage. The finances we need to raise must purchase the land and buildings. It must also provide the working capital to make initial developments and install the systems required, and we need to get planting if we are to receive a return in the next year.

Father YHVH has said that His people must purchase this property for His purposes. It is to be an investment into the generations that will visit it, learn, live and leave there to the destinations He has prepared for them. The Homestead is to be a preparation and training ground.

Significantly, the Lost Sheep Foundation is to be established in order to serve and resource the greater purposes of the Lost Sheep mission.

Friends, we now need your help. We showed our interest in the property seven months ago in early August 2019. The owners were delighted to hear about the project and understood that time was needed to develop the goals. We have been praying earnestly that the Lord will hold this property for us. The sale of the property has now changed hands to another real estate agent. The owners now have another interested party.

Our recent conversation with the owners was positive and they remained excited that we were still interested. Pease pray that this property will not be given over to a secular project.
We need and we must answer YHVH’s request to buy this farm and to see the owners housed in their retirement homes.

We have already been given a large donation to help in the mission work, but need to buy this property outright.

Your prayers and responses are important. This Homestead is not a ministry building exercise. It is for YHVH’s people to come and live in community. YHVH will provide for us. We believe this and we know that He will burden others to become part of this amazing project.

The Lord is calling us to build His House. Let us reflect on this passage from
Haggai 1:…
2 “Here is what Adonai-Tzva’ot says: ‘This people is saying that now isn’t the time — the time hasn’t yet arrived for Adonai’s house to be rebuilt.’”
3 Then this word of Adonai came through Hagai the prophet: 4 “So is now the time for you to be living in your own paneled houses, while this house lies in ruins? 5 Therefore here is what Adonai-Tzva’ot says:
‘Think about your life!
6 You sow much but bring in little;
you eat but aren’t satisfied;
you drink but never have enough;
you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;
and he who works for a living earns wages
that are put in a bag full of holes.’”
7 “Here is what Adonai-Tzva’ot says: ‘Think about your life! 8 Go up into the hills, get wood, and rebuild the house. I will be pleased with that, and then I will be glorified,’ says Adonai. 9 ‘You looked for much, but it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?’ asks Adonai-Tzva’ot. ‘Because my house lies in ruins, while every one of you runs to take care of his own house. 10 This is why the sky above you has withheld the dew, so that there is none, and the land withholds its yield. 11 In fact, I called for a drought on the land and on the hills, on the grain, the wine and the olive oil, on what the ground brings up, on men, animals and on all that hands produce.’”

What the LORD has shown us in prayer is that the farm is a vessel to establish community, as His people need to have a paradigm shift – one that changes its gaze from focusing on the multifaceted world system, Babylon, to one that is transfixed upon and embraces the Kingdom of YHVH. For it is the latter that will stand when the first is uprooted and do y YHVH during the time of trouble.

The LORD at this time, we believe, is seeking His people to prepare for a change and embrace the Kingdom community paradigm. However, while this is the Father’s desire, many will not, for whatever reason, move forward. However, what the LORD is presenting through the community vision, is an opportunity for His people to bring, from what He has blessed them with, and give to the building of the community – a chance for people to transfer what they have from the present world system, through giving, towards the establishment of a community of called out people. This community once established will be a blessing to this nation and the body of Messiah.

Friends, we urge and ask that you seek YHVH regarding your involvement.
