History Maker International was started by Dr. Richard William in 2003. Hence, our History Maker Global Conference is into its twelfth year this 2014. It is a significant year because the number twelve speaks of a new government. The clock face doesn’t have the number thirteen. It goes from “twelve” to “one” which means change is coming and we are going to move into a new season. We believe this is Asia’s hour and a revival like never before is coming to Asia!
The conference revolved around one theme, “Outpouring.” Our delegates from Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, China, Malaysia and USA came together to seek a greater outpouring of the Lord. From the beginning till the end, the Lord moved in ways that most have never experienced before.
Our main speakers for the conference were Dr. Larry Hill (USA), Dr. Roberts Liardon (USA) and Dr. Richard William (USA/ Singapore). Together they brought about a tremendous measure of God’s presence.
Day One of the conference started with prayer at 5:30am. A crowd had gathered in the wee hours of the morning. Dr. Richard William spoke on the spirit of prayer. When the people of God pray, they go from breakthrough to breakthrough. Churches or people who don’t pray are those in survival mode. Prayer brings revival!
For our first session, Dr. Larry Hill charged the people to redeem the time. It’s important for us to understand the arena of time from God’s perspective. We need to understand the times so that we can cooperate with God and redeem the time. One of the saddest things of life is lost opportunity. We got to be part of what God is doing. We need to be moving where God is moving. Our life is not an accident. God specifically designed us for this moment in history!
At the afternoon workshop, Pastor David Park (South Korea) brought an encouraging word to the crowd that had gathered. He challenged the people to grow deeper and go further in the Lord.
At the leader’s workshop, Dr. Roberts Liardon shared about the early church. A lot of people think the early church was perfect and want to go back to the days of the early church. The truth is the early church was plagued with similar problems as we do today. Today, we are blessed with knowledge. We can change the world by all forms of media such as Internet, TV, newspaper and radio.
That evening, Dr. Richard William urged all believers to have a visitation of the Holy Ghost. We and the Holy Spirit are a lethal combination. God is looking for those who are willing to pay the price. God is waiting for us to step up to the place. Many responded to the call that night, renewing their desire to move in the things of the Holy Spirit.
Day Two of the conference began with early morning prayer. Pastor Amos Tsang (Hong Kong) exhorted the people to keep their fire for the Lord. Jesus prayed for His disciples so that they can receive revelation. Paul prayed for the Ephesus church and revival came to them. In the same way, we can pray for the Holy Spirit’s revelation to come upon us!
Dr. Roberts Liardon preached the Word at the morning session. He spoke on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The great missionaries took the gospel to the world, but their wives and children died in that process. If they knew all the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, they would be saved from all that trouble. We all need the nine gifts to grow stronger and deeper in our lives. All nine gifts can bring victory to anybody!
That afternoon, the overseas delegates went sightseeing at Danshui, a town to the north of Taipei. It is a favorite destination for city dwellers to take a stroll and enjoy a coffee along the riverside. Everyone enjoyed themselves as they went around the streets, taking in all the beautiful sights and sounds.
In the evening we had an ordination/ licensing service for Mark Pang (Hong Kong), Sian Loh (Hong Kong) and Junyoung Park (South Korea) for the work of the ministry. We are so thankful to the Lord for these faithful men who will go on to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2).
Dr. Larry Hill ministered the Word to us that evening. He started off by saying a Kingdom perspective is needed regarding our nations. God chose a little town of Bethlehem to bring the Savior into this world. If we feel insignificant, then we are a candidate for God to use. We are to see God behind all that is happening. God had decreed a human king to give a decree in a particular place at a particular time for His Son to be born. The same decree has gone out. We are to go into the world and preach the gospel. We are to charge the gates of hell. And God is with us!
Day Three began with believers seeking the Lord in prayer. Despite it being the third day of the conference, the numbers at the prayer meeting did not go down. Dr. Aaron Wong (Taiwan) spoke about the prayer of Habakkuk. When we pray, our heart knows the future. Habakkuk saw the future. Prayer is the key here. As we pray, the Spirit of God will come into our lives. We will be able to see a bigger picture. We will see clearly, precisely into our future!
Dr. Richard William brought to us a powerful Word that morning. He exhorted all believers to experience the various dimensions and impartations of the Holy Spirit. The revelation of the Holy Spirit has to be caught. For us to experience that we have to surrender our lives daily. We must yield daily. We must die to self daily. Pleasing our Master must be the top priority of our lives. That is authentic Christianity!
At the afternoon workshop, Pastor David Hwang (South Korea) encouraged the believers to stay passionate for the Lord.
Dr. Larry Hill spoke to the pastors and leaders at the leader’s workshop. Many people are damaged emotionally in their souls. When they become leaders, this can become very dangerous. It can cause them to fall. We have the responsibility to deal with all issues in our lives so that we can minister effectively to the people.
There was such an excitement in air as believers gathered that evening, our last session for the conference. While the world celebrates Halloween that day, the people of God were there to celebrate King Jesus. We had an incredible time praising the Lord that almost brought down the roof. Hearts were lifted before Him in worship and adoration.
That evening Dr. Roberts Liardon preached on the birth of Reformation. On this day years ago, Martin Luther stood up in Germany and nailed his papers to the door. Luther helped give freedom with just this scripture, “The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17). By scripture we can defeat the enemy. By scripture we can have reformation. A man and the scripture will always overcome!
Later on Dr. Larry Hill went on the pulpit to say that we owe it so much to the men and women of history. What we celebrated that night did not begin with us. True Christianity liberates. It liberates structures. It sets an atmosphere for people to dream. We live in an unprecedented time in history. We must seize every opportunity that we have to spread the gospel!
