Firstly I want to say thanks to all of you, who was praying and sending donations for the rent of the house of prayer and worship. God is really amazing and even though the rent of this house was a big challenge of faith for me, but all finances that we needed to pay a deposit came at the right time, and the last day of summer the contract was signed. 1st of October we have moved into the house, and then it was a week of handling and preparation to start daily worship ministry.
Rivers of the Living Water
I‘m so happy, that Lord gave grace and opened doors to the house on the hill, through which windows you can see the beautiful Kaunas view. For the few weeks I live relying on this Bible verse and it makes me stronger: “I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water”. (Isaiah 41:18 NKJV). Today spiritually Lithuania surely looks like the dry land, and our nation is desperate for refreshment of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said: “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38 NKJV). So, when we look to the scripture of Isaiah 41:18, we see that rivers will not flow “from the high places”, but will be “opened in high places”. This is the rivers of the living water, which do not flow from the depths of the earth, but from Spirit of Living God through those, who’s been born again. And even now in many places in Lithuania the bigger or smaller fountains spray – and that’s how it looks the fellowship of God’s children. In those meetings there’s no religious debates, but people are seeking for His face. That’s the prayer and worship meetings where Spirit of God is flowing and refreshing His people and doing invisible work in that city.
I believe that the birth of worship room in Kaunas is making more intensive that, what’s already been active in Lithuania. This is one more river, that God opened in one of the high places of Lithuania, and how intensive the river of living water will flow in that place – that is according to us. And this is not the only one place, where God is willing to flow the rivers, because He is talking not in singular, but in plural. And today He is gathering His children in high places, and in valleys, and when we worship God in spirit and in truth - through us are flowing rivers of the living water. The insensitivity of Holy Spirit flow is growing and God little by little is refreshing the dry land of Lithuania. I believe, that we will see a big changes in our country and how spiritual wilderness is becoming the prosperous land!
I believe, that God today restoring Tabernacle of David – that’s worship 24/7. But that is not connected with any kind of special place, because we are called to worship not in geographic dimension, but in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). The birth of worship home in Kaunas – it’s just one of many places where Spirit of God would be poured out through the hearts of believers, so I invite all of you to pray, that Lithuania would have such a will of God as in heaven. The worship in heaven never ends, so let the sound of praise go forth day and night in Lithuania too.
I mentioned in my previous letter, that we don’t start the 24/7 worship right from the beginning. We will start from 3-5 hours a day – I hope, that we will have few hours of worship in the morning and few in the evening. I believe, that little by little all day will be covered by worship. When God will gather enough dedicated worshippers and we will see, that we are able to minister at night too, I believe that He will open new doors and give the place, where we could worship day and night.
When I was ministering in Succat Hallel – the house of prayer in Jerusalem, I learned some practical things, and I understand that ministry of continuously worship and prayer technically is not difficult, but we need dedication and intersession. We can start with 10-12 dedicated worship leaders, who would have a commitment to come every week on fixed time and lead the worship. Maybe someone could come 1 hour a week, another – 2 times for 2 hours a week, another one – 3 times for 1 hour and etc. It’s not so important the quantity or professionalism, but the position of the heart and desire to see Lord Jesus exalted in Lithuania. I believe, that the worship thrilling from our hearts every day will be like nice aroma rising to the Throne of God. And angels of Lord will clean spiritual realm in our nation, and little by little we will see the real changes in Lithuania.
The way to the hearts of the people
Lithuania is a singing nation, but people are most likely to sing, when they feel relaxed. It‘s a bit sad that in our nation is still popular to relax by drinking alcohol. I have a desire to see, that all Lithuanians would find the tap of the Holy Spirit, from which is possible to drink the Heavenly wine. And that’s for free! Many children of God were addicted to alcohol, but today are enjoying the Heavenly wine as they’ve been set free from earthly alcohol. It is really amazing to be drunk from the Holy Spirit! But in the past, we used to drink “the drops of devil”, so we could feel “good”. No wonder that most of the times this short pleasure ended up sadly and hangover was killing most of us in the mornings… But when you drink the wine of the Holy Spirit you’ll never ever have a hangover!
I think that one of the main roots of alcoholism problem in Lithuania is depression. People are desperately running from the reality by drinking alcohol. I saw many people touched by Worship music and I’m sure, that this is the best antidepressant. So today the Healer of healers Jesus wants to prescribe it freely for all our nation. Remember the young man David – when he was playing harp, the evil spirit was leaving the King Saul and one of those evil spirits is depression. How wonderful it would be if a sound of pure praise would be in our homes today. How amazing it would be if those, chained by unvisible chains of devil, would feel the presence of God and would be set free from depression. Most of them don‘t want to get in touch with others, they lock themselves in a small rooms and suffer in silence. I even know some people, who never gets out of their home for years and they keep the curtains closed all the time. How to reach those people? I believe that we could reach them through the Worship music. All we need to do – just send a link on internet or give gift – a CD of worship music.
The dreams from heaven
I have travelled to Denmark and England in September and served in worship with brothers and sisters in Christ. In the time of worship I was covered up by Holy Spirit and I felt something supernatural. In the Spirit I went to the house on the hill, in which pretty soon we will be able to worship together. And I saw that it was incomparably more than just a worship songs rising to the throne of God. This is more than God‘s being in that room, that quarter or even in the whole city. I felt it really strongly that God wants this daily worship to be recorded in multi-tracks and songs would be professionally recorded to CD‘s. I believe that from this upper room the songs of worship will reach the internet and one after another will born CD‘s of the worship music. It will be published in huge numbers of editions and will spread out for free to everyone, who is in need of God‘s mercy and compassion. Yes, you get it right – in huge numbers of editions and for free! The scripture says: „Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.“ (Isaiah 55:1 NKJV). The wine in the Bible – a symbol of Holy Spirit and milk – God‘s Word for those, who newly born again. There‘s no need to commercialize the Gospel. We don‘t have to sell worship music as there‘s more blessing in giving than in receiving. But if the receiver wants to donate – he becomes a part of this iniciative by supporting it and both parts will be blessed.
Today I already see through the eyes of faith how worship songs as a powerful river flows from district to district, from town to town, from home to home. I see how Spirit of God is touching the hearts of people through these worship songs and how Jesus is changing their lives. If you see it in your heart, even a tiny bit of that, what I‘m sharing with you, I invite you to join us and worship our Lord Jesus together. We await all, who have a desire to worship in spirit and in truth. We also encourage you don‘t miss out your fellowship in church and have a personal time with God in your secret place as this is the most important thing in every believer‘s life.
I am really glad that after posting my last letter I‘ve got loads of feedbacks and support. There are loads of people with different talents wishing to serve as well - worshippers, people of prayer, musicians and all other believers, who are willing to help. It just confirms that Lithuania is in need of more worship. People seeing the purpose of it really wants to join this service and to help in one way or another.
There was a lovely surprise to me, when I met with brother in Christ, who is a professional sound engineer and works in events. We spoke about the future plans, about desire to organise the worship conferences and worship events in the open air places and etc. Of course, I shared with him on what desires I‘m living in the mean time and the dreams from heaven to record the professional sound tracks in an upper room. Without a big consideration he offered to lend his equipment when it‘s available. This is simply amazing, because he mainly organise events on weekends, so we will have the opportunity to use the equipment on the working days. We will record the worship through the multi-channel digital sound mixer. He uses the microphones for the concerts and for the records in studio we suppose to be using different microphones, but I trust that God in His time will provide with all the needs. So I‘d like to invite you to pray for this matter and if there‘s somebody, touched by God, having a desire to make a donation for this purpose – please get in touch with me.
I‘d like to make it clear one thing, which I‘ve got right from the beginning. Even though when we will make the recordings in the upper room, every worshipper and every man and women of prayer need to have such an attitude, that first of all we are coming to meet with our Lord Jesus, to bring Him glory and praise for what He‘s done for us. The records aren‘t the main purpose. We are the bride of Christ, so our purpose is to meet with groom. The records will be done just to capture those wonderful moments of our fellowship, but it will never be equal to the real sense of meeting Lord at the worship time.
Reading this letter most of you could have a sense that all the works of preparation are going smoothly and there wasn‘t coming any opposition or trials. It would be strange if there wasn‘t an opposition. I had to go through a really hard spiritual pressure, but then I casted all my care upon Jesus (for He careth for you), when I felt His peace. I screemed to Him: „If this house is from You, may it come all the money for deposit untill the agreement signing day.“ All finances came in one week. Some of those, who transferred donations, I don‘t even know, but it doesn‘t matter, because they know Jesus personally and Jesus knows them – that‘s what really matters. The relationship with Jesus encourages people to support one or another project for God‘s glory.
I had even more trials during this month, but today I wouldn‘t want to focus onto the problems, but I have a desire to keep my focus on the Lord. I am sure, that He who started a good work in us, He will finish it untill the day of Lord Jesus. I know that for Him over all those projects much more important is the personal time spent with me. That‘s why I take my guitar on a daily basis and praise Him with my worship. I don‘t know how many worshippers will join us in Kaunas, but one thing I know for sure – I will worship my Lord and Saviour for at least an hour every day.
I am really grateful for all your prayers and support for this initiative. Today I‘d like to share the particular prayer needs, so we could see the clear vision and we together could move in Spirit towards that direction:
- Pray for God to gather together those, who He called for this service: the worship leaders, musicians, man and women of praeyr and all other helpers;
- Pray for the grace of God in the neighbourhood of our house, so God would touch their hearts and would do His work in them;
- Pray for finances, that God would provide with all the needs to pay the rent and other fees.
- Pray for God to provide us with all the professional equipment, which is necessary to record the worship songs.
- Pray for the grace of God, that all these songs would reach as much Lithuanian people in all nations that there would be the flood of worship music not just on the internet, but in the radio stations and TV channels all over the world too.
- Pray for the heavenly finances to record this worship and publish it in huge editions and spread them out freely, so it could reach those, who are in need of spiritual recovery.
I want to thank you once again for your support and prayers. I am willing to praise God together with you in the upper room very soon.
With love in Christ,
