On October 21st, Jonathan and Bill travelled to Washington DC to join First Nations from all over North America for a special ceremony on the Mall to forgive the U.S. Government for its broken treaties.
Rick Joyner wrote: “In Scripture, breaking a vow or treaty brought a curse on the land, and the U.S. Government broken every treaty it made with the Native American tribes. Chief Negiel Bigpond, the primary co-ordinator for this event, told me that they were going to forgive the U.S. whether we asked for it or not, simply because they do not want our country to suffer the consequences of this any longer. This is one of the most noble acts of true Christian charity that I have ever heard of by any people group.”
Jonathan shares: “Bill and I are now in Washington at the All One Tribe DC Gathering. What an honour and privilege to open on the Big Drum! I remember not so many years ago that the drum was not welcome in such gatherings. So, for us to be able to release its sound here is powerful! I believe the drum is not just an instrument but representation of the Restoration of our people. It is something that our Creator is using to call the host people of this land back to the place of His original intention for us. Pray for the healing of our First Nations People. Pray that forgiveness and love will flow freely.”
Bill shares: “Leaders from around the Nation releasing forgiveness over our Nation. Lou Engle, Willie Jock and Negiel Big Pond releasing a shout of praise as God is breaking the bonds of past injustice.”
Willie Jock, pastor of New Life Christian Church, Hogansburg, NY made a public declaration entitled “The Power to Forgive.” It starts out by saying: “We the people, the Host People of this Great Nation and the original lovers of this land, stand united with one heart and one mind, to bring the power of forgiveness to bear. ……….” It ends by releasing blessing on those who have hurt them. What a powerful declaration!
Jonathan shares: “What a day at the All Tribes Gathering in Washington DC. Just before our time to play, the rain came and washed the stage. It seemed like it could have been over but then the sun came out. Everyone pushed through the storm and released the love and medicine of Jesus. Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this event possible. It was great being with you all and seeing your heart to release the hope and love.”
Jonathan stayed and spoke at a gathering at The Mission Church in Virginia. It was a great night! He shared the evening with evangelist Fred from Uganda, a special speaker who gave a great message on the power of prayer. On Sunday morning, Jonathan played and spoke at The Messiah Church in Virginia. It was an amazing time of freedom in the spirit!
Special thanks to Ty for his great work on the bass, and to Troy and Kelly and their dance team who were a beautiful example of true honour to our Creator. Leadership at Messiah gave Jonathan freedom to share from his heart. Jonathan and Broken Walls have an open invitation to return.
