Antioch Forerunner Foundation


This summer, we will be launching a long awaited student missionary training school for the "Student Back to Jerusalem Movement." Many of you who frequent my personal blog have answered the call to give at least 2 years of your life in the next 10 years to reaching the next generation in East Asia and from there bringing the Gospel back to Jerusalem to finish the Great Commission. We have seen the Holy Spirit galvanize and recruit over 3,500 student missionaries committed to the B2J movement in the last 3 years. This AFF training school is the culmination of years of prayer and prophetic words that God would birth an equipping center that would train the 10,000 young apostolic and prophetic student missionaries who have committed to the call in this hour. The training will be highly intensive and strategic, you will be required to take what you have learned and start s campus house of prayer & a simple church planting movement on your college campus in order to prepare you for church planting, missions & nations transformation in East Asia B2J. Apply for AFF as soon as possible, we are only taking a maximum of 70 student leaders this summer in KC!

June 25 - August 5 (arriving June 24, leaving August 6)

Antioch Forerunner Foundation is an intensive program designed to equip young adults 18-25 who have answered the call to bring the Gospel to East Asia and back to Jerusalem.

Students will be equipped in the context of a night and day prayer furnace at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. Within the framework of cultivating a lifestyle of prayer (100+ hours in the prayer room), students will receive equipping and teaching from the Word from Campus Church Networks' staff, IHOP intercessory missionaries and other strategic speakers. This cultivation of their missiology and theology will also be worked out as they seek to reach out to the surrounding community and engage with one another in small groups.

Ultimately, this missionary school's aim will be to equip student leaders to go back and make disciples that will become a simple church planting movement on their campuses. This will be in preparation to do so in the unreached cities and nations in East Asia.

Tuition (Option 1): $350
Tuition + Meals (Option 2): $650
Tuition + Meals + Housing (Option 3): $1050

A Nation Can Be Changed!

Much love and appreciation to all of you around the world who have been praying for God's movement here in Taiwan. All I can say is that God is faithful, He is good, and a nation can be changed!

The two nights of Festival of God's Power, literally, hundreds were healed of diseases and were saved. Too many to count. People popping out of wheel chairs one by one, deaf people regaining their hearing, blind eyes receiving sight, diseases disappearing, one by one they came up to the stage to testify, people were in awe of God's power as Pastor Philip led by the spirit, pointing every miracle to Jesus. 6 national TV news stations documented and broadcast the meetings and the stories of people being miraculously saved all over the nation. There is hope for Taiwan :)

I am so in awe of God's love and power, I am without words for what just took place the last four days. Cindy Jacobs prophesied to over 3,000 pastors and leaders from around the nation that Taiwan would soon go from 3% to 10% Christian, then to 25% and one day over 50% and that Taiwan would become a Christian nation. But she also gave stern prophetic warnings for the church leaders to unite, settle differences, and repent on behalf of the land for the corrupt government that has infected this nation. The Church must pray, repent and pursue righteousness and justice, so that the evil in the government of this nation would be exposed. For such a time as this, let this nation rise up to its calling and enter into it's destiny to be a nation completely transformed by God.

Also, on the second night, the Holy Spirit spoke to me that there would be a 50 year old woman, with a disrupted spinal cord and one leg shorter than the other who I was to call out to the front stage to be prayed for the next day. I told God, "What if I call her out tomorrow and we pray for her with the TV cameras watching and she doesn't get healed?" I was in a bit of a low faith mode cause I had prayed for two people that evening to receive healing, but there were not healed. But, then I heard the Lord say, "So when is it about you? Will you obey?" So I told the Lord whether or not she would be healed, I would obey in praying for her healing.

The next day, I did a workshop to 3,000+ leaders on our supernatural call to heal the sick. After I did the practical training I knew God wanted to show His people that the kingdom of God is not of talk, but of power. I began to give out many words of knowledge of specific people with specific diseases and infirmities. Many people were healed, including two who were completely deaf received back their hearing instantly, it was verified and checked by doctors. Yet, as I stood there releasing words of knowledge, I saw clearly a woman with a leg shorter than the other, 50 years old, and with a disrupted spine walk up to the front stage. So in obedience, I called this woman to come to the front and she did.

We asked her how she ended up in her condition, she said she was like this from an early age. So by faith, I asked her to sit down on the stage steps and we stretched out her legs. Sure enough, one leg was a good 1 inch shorter than the other. By faith, we welcomed the presence of the Holy Spirit to come upon her to heal. I then held up her two legs, and commanded her left leg to grow out 1 inch. For the first two minutes, literally, nothing happened. In my mind I'm thinking "Oh God don't tell me You are not going to come through in front of 3,000 people!" The two minutes felt like 2 hours. But, we just kept praying in faith, commanding her leg in Jesus name to grow out. All of a sudden, the entire stadium starts screaming and praising God, because on the jumbo screen they could see her foot literally growing out in front of their eyes. She was instantly healed and started walking and skipping around the stage! It was a creative miracle. The glory of God was being revealed. Miracles still happen today!

This miracle stirred up the faith of the people to believe that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Everyone in the stadium then began to pray for all the sick in the stadium near them with great faith. I was so encouraged by this experience, because I saw God's people being inspired and equipped to believe that "we can" do the Great Commission. During the afternoon thousands were sent out into the streets of Taipei, released to do prophetic evangelism, to heal the sick and deliver the oppressed. Testimonies came in, one after the another of God's power being released on the streets.

How does God save a nation? Through prayer, miracles and teaching nations to obey Jesus commands. This is the simple Biblical prescription.

§“Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. . . .. Then he said to them,… ‘Whatever city you enter. . . . heal the sick there, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you. . . .’” Luke 9:1-2; 10:8-9

§“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey (Matt 28:18-19)

A.“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe; In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18, Emphasis added

As we equip God's Church in Asia to do the works of Christ, I am excited. The conference has ended, but the acts of the Holy Spirit are just beginning. Tomorrow, they will go back to their campuses, their workplaces, their communities and release the supernatural advancing God's kingdom wherever believers go, the lost will be encountered by the presence of God, and they will be taught to obey Christ commands till an entire nation is discipled.

Continue to pray for us, in the morning our team flies to Hong Kong for 3 days of apostolic and prophetic meetings to pray and release God's destiny for East Asia back to Jerusalem.

Go to:

Please keep East Asia in your dedicated intercessions, 2008 will be a year the entire nation block shifts into God's timetable for radical revival and reformation.

Urgent Prayer - Spiritual War in Taiwan

We need your prayers urgently between Feb 12-15 in Taipei, Taiwan. Today we engage in spiritual warfare as thousands of believers will be fasting for the "Festival of God's Power" crusades we are holding at National Taiwan University. This nationwide conference will bring in pastors/leaders from all over the nation to contend for the destiny of this land. Prophet Cindy Jacobs, Pst. Philip Mantofa and myself will be holding 4 days of meetings equpping thousands of believers in the supernatural, releasing God's prophetic word for the nation, and holding miracle crusades in the evening. We know in our spirit that God's light is going to break out over this nation in these next days to usher in the greatest outpouring of the Spirit in this nations history. But this battle will not be won without prayer, fasting, and full reliance upon God as we found out recently we are up against some serious demonic opposition. Read below...

Massive Prayer Needed:

  1. During our Festival of God's Power it so happens that Tibetan Bhuddist high priests from all over Asia will be holding a occult festival summoning their war gods only two levels under our meeting place in the same stadium for the whole week! This is a 1 Kings 18 showdown and we need your prayers, fastings and faith to join with us in victory! We know God has the victory already, but this does not mean we do not do our part in prayer. May God display His power to these Tibetan high priests and convert them all!
  2. Taiwan's presidential elections is next month and we will be praying as a nation for God to bring about righteousness, justice and a shift in the government to repent and be restored in God's order
  3. Pray that Cindy Jacobs will be used mightily to release a national prophetic word and shift to the nations spiritual leaders
  4. Pray that Philip Mantofa will be used mightily as a catalyst and evangelist in mighty signs, wonders and miracles to display God's power and authority to a nation of unbelievers more than 97% who worship idols in this land
  5. Pray that God gives me, my team members Anita Lee and Helena Hwang grace, and the Asia for Jesus team strength to minister in His love and power of the Holy Spirit as we train leaders in prophetic evangelism, demonic deliverance and divine healing power
  6. Pray that the nation of Taiwan can be born in a day, that history would be made for God, and the name of Jesus would be made famous in this land as multitudes are swept into the kingdom!

I also want to thank you for your prayers in Sth Taiwan. We trained 600 student leaders and are expecting for 300 new campus church starts through the training. May God continue to pour out grace and favor among the student mission movement here in Taiwan.

For His namesake,

Men of Integrity

“Men don't follow titles, they follow courage.” William Wallace, Braveheart

The other day my friend called me up with some challenging news. Recently, he had given his life back to the Lord and wanted to start his life over again. Yet, some of his past actions caught up. He told me he just found out he got a young woman pregnant and wasn't sure what to do. This pregnancy came out of a one night stand. He told me if he was his old self, he would have just aborted the child. Instead, after prayer and some godly counsel, he knew he had to do the right thing. He called back the young woman, told her she should keep the baby and give it up for adoption, if not, he would take responsibility for the child. I'm proud of my bro, cause he did what was right. He took responsibility for his wrong actions. For most they would see the situation as an incovenience, but integrity is about thinking of others before yourself. Irresponsibility is doing what is good for yourself at the expense of others having to suffer, for your wrongdoing. Integrity is doing what is right, even when it hurts to do so. Even when it is inconvient for you. When my boy told her he wanted her to have the child, she was shocked. She told him her father didn't want her when she was born, nor did the current father of her other child. Neither of them paid child support. I knew God was using this situation to redeem what was done wrong and make it right.

Integrity is everything. Without integrity you have nothing. When you lose your integrity, you lose your honor. When you lose your honor, you lose yourself. I've been really burdended lately with this challenge to live a life of integrity. It's not easy, I must admit. The temptation is in front of your face everyday. Society praises wrong doing and unrighteous living. It's so easy to compromise. Yet, where are the men of real courage? It takes a real man, with real courage, to swear to his hurt and not change from the path of righteousness. I pray that I can be that man, I pray that all of us would. Why? Everywhere I look it seems that integrity has been lost from our society.

When I found out about the Edison Chen Hong Kong sex scandal, my heart was broken. Here is a young pop icon, who has lived a reckless life, much like the prodigal son and now his sins have found him out. Thousands of pictures of him engaging in sexual immorality with over a dozen HK female superstars have been leaked on the internet. I pray that each of them would find grace, mercy and God's forgiveness. At the same time, I can't point the finger. I recognize that it is easy for anyone to fall from grace in this day and age. It doesn't matter if you are a celebrity, a pastor like myself or anybody, we are all just one step away from falling into temptation. Look at Pastor Ted Haggard, the mega-church pastor who fell from Christian superstardom into homosexuality, to God knows where now. The temptation in these last days will only escalate. Darkness will increase, as will light. The question is, what kind of man will you be? What kind of men will you surround yourself with? I heard once "You hang with pigs, you'll act like a pig. You hang with eagles and you will soar with the eagles." People are like elevators, they either take you up or they take you down. It's our choice who we ultimately grow to become. May we each choose to make the hard decisions, which are the right decisions. For wide is the path to the road of destruction. Narrow is the path that leads to life.

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Robert Frost

I am praying that God would make me a man of integrity. One who does what is right no matter the cost. If there is anything I can ask for, I ask for integrity, that I may walk in the fear of the Lord all the days of my life. I pray that I would finish well. This would be my greatest prayer, knowing that I will need God's help in times of temptation, when it counts the most. I also pray earnestly that God would raise up young men who walk in purity, honesty and integrity as did the heroes from the days of old. We need them badly in this hour, it's too easy to compromise. Lord raise up a standard when the enemy comes in like a flood. We need new role models, we need leaders who don't lead by position or power, but ones who lead by integrity of the heart.

Psalm 15
Description of a Citizen of Zion.
A Psalm of David.

1 O LORD, who may abide in Your tent?

Who may dwell on Your holy hill?

2 He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,

And speaks truth in his heart.

3 He does not slander with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his neighbor,

Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;

4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,

But who honors those who fear the LORD;

He swears to his own hurt and does not change;

5 He does not put out his money at interest,

Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent

He who does these things will never be shaken.

Vote and Pray for Primary Elections!

Please pray and vote today if you are in California and other states. It is our duty as citizens of this country to do our part. Continue to pray and mobilize for this election after Super Tuesday's primaries. Read below...

I also want to exhort and challenge each of you to vote for candidates who are "pro-life" as I have made a covenant never to vote for a potential president who is pro choice and does not hold to Biblical values of righteousness and justice for unborn, the poor, widow and orphan.

As of now, Mike Huckabee is the only candidate who holds clearly to Biblical values and principles consistently. May God raise up and put into place His chosen candidate for this country. Please read the two emails below from my friends...

For His namesake,
Jaeson Ma

Dear friends,

Today is the big day :) of the Primary Presidential elections!

What: Vote for Presidential candidates
When: tomorrow, Feb 5th
Where: Polling places:
Time: 7 AM - 8:00 PM


*What is the primary election?
- States narrow which Democrat and Republican candidates remain
- voting => top candidates get most delegates => party nomination

* Why vote and pray?

God really cares about justice and the kind of leaders we have in government!

2 Samuel 23:3-4, Exodus 18:24, 1 Tim 2:1-3, Psalm 33:8-19
- Issues: Abortion, Marriage, Immigration, Economy, Healthcare, War, Education, Environment

* Who should I vote for?

* Does my vote make a difference?

Only 31 % of California eligible voters voted in 2004 primary!
Dear friend,

I write with an urgent plea: to vote in your primary for Mike Huckabee. Their may be gray areas that scripture does not clearly define, but there are those that are clearly black and white. LIFE is the biggest issue our nation is facing because the trampling of it results in bloodshed. Every day 4,500 American children are killed in the womb- and that isn't even touching RU-486. Of all the presidential candidates, Huckabee is the only one with a voting record that lines up with scripture. Huckabee also supports the marriage amendment. (Link to Christian Voters Guide )

God would have to break his Word to let the destruction of human life in it's most vulnerable stages go on unaccounted for without His intervention. Either you and I must work with God to do everything Christianly possible to make it stop, or, we fight against God through our silence or our misplaced voting. In the days of slavery the church was experiencing a massive, spiritual awakening, yet half the church refused to call slavery sin and end it. War was the result. John Adams saw it coming 30 years ahead of time and fought for change, but wrote in his journal that if it took a war amongst the states to eradicate slavery, so great would be the outcome that he could not say it should not come. And the church had all those years... but God did end it. It must have been heartbreaking for Him to end it through war when he sent so many preachers of righteousness and touched so many lives with His Spirit and revival- yet too many remained hardened and did not end slavery. Abortion has been legalized in our nation for 35 long years as of January 22nd. God has given us so much time. Let's not waste another moment!

Let's repent of our ungodly thinking and align oursleves with God's desire for JUSTICE in our nation. Many of us (75,000) went to The Call Nashville on 7.7.07 to divorce the spirit of Baal (which in ancient times involved child sacrifice for the purpose of economic gain). Let's not remarry that spirit by sacrificing the most pro-life candidate for the sake of our opinion on another candidate's economic plan. Truly, as scripture says, a nation suffers when the wicked are in power but righteous leaders results in the nation being blessed. Let's lean on God, trusting His ways which are higher than ours, for all things- including the economy and all the other issues we care about. I humbly submit to you that to not vote when you are of voting age, or, to put money (the economy) or any other lesser issue above the ending of the spilling of innocent blood is sin. Psalms 2:10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. In a democracy the way we warn our "kings" and present day rulers is through our vote. Have you been warning them to end the bloodshed? Please do it today.

What an amazing opportunity God has given us that our voices and votes will write the future! I know what mine is writing in regard to the unborn in the light of both this present time and eternity. What will you write, and what will heaven say? Make it matter in eternity. Make it matter for 50 million children who are already gone- our sisters, brothers, sons and daughters. Yes, there are many issues of injustice facing our nation- but only one, abortion, is resulting in daily bloodshed through legal protection Remember the children tomorrow as you decide whether or not to vote- and who to vote for. We must end this.

Proverbs 31:8

8 Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
9 Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.

In Love,

April Brown

Christian votes made the difference in 2002 and 2004 with an increase in Christian voters of 93% over 2000 (28.9 million in 2004 vs, 15 million in 2000). Over those two elections, 15 of the 19 freshman senators have been pro-life, two conservative Supreme Court Justices have been appointed who have already had an impact on the number of Biblical and pro-family issues.

In 2006 Christian voter turnout plummeted by 30% and the result was clearly visible. Of 54 freshmen elected to the House only 17 were pro-life. Of the 10 freshmen elected to the Senate only 1 was pro-life. The 2006 Congress has been active in promoting the homosexual agenda through the onerous hate-crime bill.

The Christian voice has effectively been silenced but we can't let this continue. We can't take God out of politics. Our freedom is at stake. Let's not let discouragement keep us from voting our conscience. Let's not play defense by voting for a candidate who we believe may be better able to defeat the other party in the general election.

As Christians we are the moral conscience of this country and lawlessness is rampant. Please join me in voting for Mike Huckabee for President on Tuesday. Having a righteous President is a start in taking back our land.
