Bonnie Jones: Japan, Slovania, Russia - Get Ready
Bonnie Jones, widow of minister Bob Jones who went to be with the Lord on Valentine's Day of 2014, released an encouragement this week on Elijah List for believers to trust God to do a work of the Spirit in three strategic locations.
Bob Jones was well known in some circles of Christianity for his precise and accurate skill in hearing the voice of the Spirit of God. Bonnie is following in his footsteps this year saying that she believes the Lord is about to open a door of the Gospel into the "land of the Rising Sun."
"The Lord is about to open wide the Gospel in the land of the Rising Sun. No longer shall she walk in darkness. The awakening in this great nation will begin in Sapporo. The Lord says, 'See what I do in the next six months to change and increase Christianity there. Many have been closet Christians but soon they shall surface and walk in truth and power. Amen.'"
Bonnie called for "Christian warriors" to spark the fire of revival again in the land of Japan.
"Tremors in the earth shall result from Christians tearing down strongholds and stripping the enemy of his authority. The power flowing from these mighty Christian warriors will spark a fire of revival. And you shall see a new flag raised over this nation, as the Son of Righteousness shall arise in His glory over Japan."
Perhaps timely, Silence, the film, just was released by director Martin Scorsese covering the Gospel's first penetration into Japan when it was, at that time, illegal to preach there.
Next Bonnie discussed the opportunity for evangelists to go into Slovakia, saying the nation is prime for a spiritual awakening,
"Watch as the hand of God sweeps across Slovakia and brings forth wisdom, truth and love. He's sending evangelists into Slovakia to awaken her from spiritual apathy so she'll become a beacon of light to the nations. It's time for the wealth of the wicked to be turned over to the righteous as the government of God arises."
Bonnie's last encouragement was for what God wants to release into Russia this year, discerning that 2017 is a season that God is going to use this nation and send people into Russia for his glory.
"Russia is a backdrop to future events. I've held them in reserve for such a time as this. It's time for My army to arise and move forward. You see many years ago, I spoke this prophesy through Bob and he made it famous worldwide yet many did not believe him. Why would I choose Russia? And I said why would I not choose them? They've been under persecution long enough yet their heart has always been toward Me. I'm sending ones into Russia and the Ukraine to awaken their spirit to Love. That's all they need to spark the fire of revival there. Love, love, love! My love abounds to them and the rest is history."
