Heaven Full, Hell Empty in Taiwan - Part 2

Feb 6 “A Trip to Hell”

The first day of the “Taiwan for Jesus” gathering we held training for student leaders in the morning and evening Gospel crusades in the evening. Over 2,500 student leaders were trained during the morning powerfully by Pastor Philip to go deeper in fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit, returning to a radical love for God’s Word and in the afternoon I trained the students in “prophetic evangelism” in the power of the Holy Spirit.

I trained the students to listen to the Holy Spirit in teams of 2 and 3, to write down any words of knowledge the Holy Spirit would give them (clues: such as people, places, things, etc) they saw in the spirit, and then be sent out to go look for them in the streets, believing the Holy Spirit would lead them to specific people to prophesy over, bless and share the Gospel with. Yes, 2,500 did it and the reports that came back were CRAZY GOD!

I will share one prophetic evangelism story that happened that day…

“Lottery ticket, Old Women, Gold Ring, Subway, Blue Jacket, Dessert shop”

One team of students waited on God, and while waiting on God different students received words of knowledge, prophetic clues from the Holy Spirit. One person saw an old women being prayed for and a dessert shop, another saw a subway and a blue jacket, another saw a gold ring and a ticket.” They all thought it would be impossible to see how all these different things could come together, but they went out into the streets to find the prophetic word.

As they walked out of the stadium, they decided to head towards the MRT station (subway) to see if they would find a clue. As they got there they saw the “dessert shop” that the one student saw while waiting on God. Surprised, they went into the dessert shop to see if the Holy Spirit would reveal something else. When they were walking up to the dessert shop they turned to the right and saw some old women on the side of the subway, busily, selling something. They were selling “lottery tickets!” for some Chinese New Year celebration. The students could not believe it. When they looked at the group of old women, they saw one in particular wearing a “blue jacket” and when they looked closer she was wearing a “gold ring” just as they had seen in their vision. Mustering up courage, one of the students decided to step out in faith to ask her if he could pray for her.

She looked so busy, and so non-interested in anything else. So the student had an idea, he prayed “God let me buy a lottery ticket to get her attention and let me win and give the money I win to her as a blessing and make her smile for God!” He went up to the lady, asked her if he could buy a lottery ticket, she was very happy he did so. Then he asked her how she was doing, she said, “not so well, I have not sold many lottery tickets and am personally not doing well financially.” He then told her, I want you to know that God loves you very much and by faith I’m going to buy this lottery ticket and win as a sign to you that God loves you. Also, if I win please let me pray for you!” He bought the lottery ticket and won $500 NT!!!! The chances of that were slim it was completely God’s divine providence. He then gave it to the women and asked her if he could pray for her. She said, “I don’t deserve prayer, I’m poor, I don’t deserve a blessing.” But as he gave her the lottery money, he heart was moved, and as he and his friends prayed for her they released prophetic words of destiny over her life, she began to cry and gave her life to Jesus. They invited her to the night crusades and followed up afterward. This is the beauty of moving in the prophetic; it speaks God’s heart to individuals, letting them know how much God honors and values them. Yes, even that poor old women who thought nothing of herself, realized that God thought the whole world of her. To think this God would send a few youngsters to act on faith, listen to His voice and move out in the power of the prophetic.

This is just one story of literally hundreds, just like the one above that day. We do the ridiculous and God will do the miraculous. Our God is a good God!

Heaven Full, Hell Empty in Taiwan
That night, as we prepared for the first night of the Gospel Crusade, the spiritual atmosphere was tense. We knew Satan and his cohorts were not ignorant of what was happening, we were ready to meet the enemy head on in Taipei in the grace of God.

7 years ago, Pastor Philip was taken up in an outer body experience into hell. It wasn’t a dream, or a vision, it was literally an outer body experience. He did not want to go, the Lord took him there to show him the reality of damnation, the fate of those who would not repent from falling short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23). Pastor Phil told us, he never ever wants to preach this message, in fact each time he shares this experience at a crusade, he wants to throw up because it is like he is experiencing the torture of what he saw once again in his physical body. But, he shares this experience for the sake of the lost. He has seen somewhere in the range of 100,000 souls come to Christ through sharing this “Trip to Hell” message in the most persecuted Muslim islands in Indonesia.

As we prayed, the air was electric you knew Satan was about to have his head smashed that evening. That night the stadium was filled with non-believers, what Pastor Philip shared from the book of Hebrews, “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of God” was probably the most sin convicting message I had ever heard in my life. He had no fear of man, only the fear of God. He spoke with authority and released a message of repentance for the lost to take heed. What he described, in the little that he could about what he saw in hell, God knows, but I tremble even as I type. He explained how people were utterly tormented, women who had abortions had their wombs ripped open again and again by demons, others who were unfaithful in their marriages were mutilated, words can’t suffice for the reality of what was shared. I could not be more thankful for Jesus saving a sinner like me, for giving my mother grace to not go through with aborting me, oh Lord have mercy on those who don’t know you, save them from the lake of burning fire…save them Lord!

Pastor Philip could not speak any further about his experience, he wanted to puke, he gave a call for those in the crowd to run to the altar and repent of their sins and cry out for God to save them, he only gave them a window of a few minutes to get down to the altar. When he gave the call to repentance, over a thousand ran to the altar screaming for dear life all over the indoor stadium. The heavens were opened, souls were soundly saved, hell was emptied of at least 1,500 Taiwanese souls. I had never seen an altar call like that in my life, the word delivered was true apostolic preaching, something is shaking in the foundations of Taiwan…Jesus is coming!
