Lithuania is the nation of worshipers, and even today we not see that powerful move of the Holy Spirt, but we believe that those days are coming soon.
This year for me started so special – from 1st of January I spend 3 weeks on the Sea of Galilee in prayer seeking for will of God and His leading. That time God start showing to me house in second large Lithuanian city Kaunas, and inside of me I had knowing, that He is willing to start new things. He said: “Behold, I make all things new”, and I believe, that new things need to start from worship and prayer. Truly is possible to do many things for God, but dismiss Himself. So what we can do? I believe, that when everyday burns fire of prayer and worship and we regularly study Bible – this is like fuel from Heaven starts the spiritual engines inside of us, and we can go in that direction where Lord leading us. From the very beginning I saw, that this house is full of heavenly life, and every morning and evening we have worship and prayer meetings. I believe this is the new acceleration when we moving into worship 24/7 ministry in Lithuania.
When I was on the Sea of Galilee very powerful stream of information start flowing into me. That was Christian organization (or even few organizations) strategy, and till that time when I not started writing – those thoughts was attacking me. In the beginning I tried to cast out those thoughts, but later few people confirmed to me, that in this way God speaking to me. In 3-4 days strategy was written down on the page, and when we start seeing big picture of dream house, I and precious brother Jonas called this place “Revival Hub” – connecting place for many Christian initiatives.
House on the hill
When I continue my prayers on this direction, I understood, that this house is on the hill, and through the window we can see city with many houses, and pray for those people. I had understanding that we can’t have worship 24/7 from the very beginning, and Holy Spirit was whispering words in my heart: “Be faithful in small, and I will give you bigger things”. Because of that I believe that everything will start from 3-5 hours daily worship, and God will lead us, teach us, and grow us. This ministry will move from glory to glory, from power to power, and from faith to faith, as in spiritual realm, the same in natural realm. When ministry will grow – one day we need to move to bigger place, but beginning anyway will be small, not seen from outside, and maybe not understood by many people.
I don’t had understanding when everything starts, but I know that I need to do homework – just to search in the internet for house and watch in prayer. Few weeks ago in one of real estate agencies I found beautiful house with amazing wooden ceiling. I thought that this is perfect option, because wood is very good for acoustics, and price of rent was quite good. This Friday with a group of enthusiasts who also willing to see worship 24/7 in Lithuania we came to see this house. Before we was coming I pray simple prayer, that God will testify in our spirits, this house is from Him or not. Even house looks so pretty, but inside of us was very clear answer: NO. When we look all rooms, we came out and shared with each other what we felt. All of us had inner feeling that this place is not for us. That moment I remember, that I saw on internet one more house in “Greenhill” district of Kaunas. Right away I call to Landlord, and he was able to show that house immediately.
When we came to cozy street of private houses, we was welcomed by very nice an honorable age man. House what he was going to show for us, belong to his emigrated son and granddaughter, and near to that place he living with his wife. When we going through garage, such amazing view was open and we can see beautiful picture of the city. We was standing near the house on the hill, and my heart was rejoicing when I saw panorama of Vilijampole and Shilainiai districts. Actually in this districts is a lot of crime, and they need intersession.
When we was walking inside of the house and in near based garden, Holy Spirit was testifying to us and revelations start flowing. Near house is 10 Ares of land where beautiful apple trees growing. Landlord told to us, that if we rent house from him, we will be responsible for all garden, and when we go into basement of the building, he was showing one of the rooms and told, that in this place we can do storage for wine. I told him, that we not drinking alcohol, but later I understood that those words was prophetic.
When we look all rooms, worshiper leader and painter Rasa shared her spiritual experience. Day before when we came to the house on the hill, one sister in Christ called to her, and shared the dream. She said, that in the dream she was together with Rasa in big garden picked up apples, and Rasa was teaching her how to cut little bit rotten apples.
When we left that place, Rasa was calling to me and shared, about the things what Lord start speaking into her heart, when she was driving with the car. She get revelation that our worship songs like apples, sometimes rotting in a big pile, and we need to care about that, to cut those apples and to do wine of the Holy Spirit. Lithuanians really like to sing, but very often they are doing that in not sober condition. But heavenly wine is much better vs earthly - it’s giving much more joy, and from heavenly wine you not feel bad in the morning. Can we together open more crane of the Heavenly wine today, that Lithuanians can chose not temporary things, but eternal?
When Rasa came back home she sent to me picture of few days ago finished art on canvas. That was blooming apple tree. So, first Lord gave picture of blooming tree, next day dream about apples to one sister, and on the 3rd day we was standing surrounded by the apple trees near the house on the hill. I don’t how about you, but I believe, that it can be Gods chosen place for the next season.
Till 1st of October in that house living international students, and when we visited they was in the house and it not was possible to make photos. Thanks God that we was able to see rooms. That not was so beautiful like place where we was before, but in our spirits we had such a joy and peace. Upper room, where this year we planning to start daily worship is 32 sq. meters and in that room is 2 small triangle windows through where you can see beautiful panorama of Kaunas. Landlord told to us that it’s very beautiful in the night, when all lights start shining in districts on another side of the river. That’s is really perfect place for worship and prayer, because walls of the house is thick, and nearest neighbors is quite far.
Because house is on the hill, so from one side is 2 floors, and from another is 3 floors. 1st floor is basement, where is heating room and storage. In 2nd floor – 23 sq. meters room, 9 sq. meters kitchen and quite big bathroom. In the 3rd floor 10 sq. meters room, and 32 sq. meters room, where we planning to start daily worship. I don’t know yet how we manage other rooms, but probably in the day it would be office rooms, and in the night I and maybe one more or 2 ministers will sleep. It’s not most comfortable idea, but I believe we can manage that in the beginning.
Moving into the house on the hill – it’s a step of faith, because we need to invest money and time into the things what we can’t touch with our hands, but if we believe – we can touch it with our hearts. Even before when I published this information, already 5 people said, that they can bring responsibility and for 1 year start support this project. They hearts are burning with desire to worship God and they willing to see worship 24/7 in Lithuania. Amount that all of them can give is 350 euros per month. Total rent of this house is 450 euros per month, and taxes for water, electricity and heating can be 200-300 euros every month, maybe if it’s very cold it can be 400 euros. (Landlord don’t exact numbers, because only this year they fixed new heating system.) So we have nearly half of amount what we need for monthly rent and taxes. In the end of August r I need to sign contract and to pay 900 euros deposit for 2 months, plus 500 euros extra guarantee advance. I believe that if its Gods will all money till 30th of August is coming.
Finances, what all of us have from the Lord, can be classified in 2 categories – bread and seed. We can’t sow our bread, because anything can sprout from bread, and we can’t eat seed, because this is our investment, that in the future we can have harvest again. We asking you to pray for fulfillment of this initiative. Just ask God: “Father, where is my part in this ministry? It is that soil where You willing that I can sow? How I can help?”
1st month we need help to move, decorate rooms and prepare place for the ministry. Also we need more hands for work in the garden – to bring apples, to make juice, and boil apple jam. These goods we will share with all helpers, and also with those who are in need. If you have not usable music instruments or sound system, I believe that this can be used for the glory of God.
I sincerely give thanks to you for your prayers. Today we need faithful intercessors and dedicated sowers, who can commit for 1 year financially and every month donate some amount to this ministry. If you feel that God is calling you to support this initiative, just write me email, and tell me what kind of amount you are able to donate every month. And it’s not important that amount is big or small, God sees your heart, and if He is encouraging you to support, please do that according your possibilities. We giving thanks to you in advance.
If you can’t commit today to be our financial partner for all year, but you feel that you willing to support any amount – we really appreciate that. As I told before we need 1400 euros for deposit, and today we have only 250 euros.
I believe that house on the hill is something new and fresh in Lithuania, and I’m so happy, that I have a grace to be part in this work of God. I give thanks to you for your prayers and support. I believe that now is the time when God is restoring destroyed tabernacle of David in Lithuania, and He is doing that through us, because we are His hands and His feet’s on this planet. So, let’s stay in fellowship with Him and with each other, let’s live in simplicity and share love of Christ with all, because those things glorifies our Lord Jesus Christ the most.
With love of Christ,
