Rev John Blacket of Khesed Ministries reports of signs of an incredible renewal among indigenous Australians and clear expectations that this move of God’s Spirit will impact non-indigenous Australians and migrants as well in this land. Upon returning from a recent trip to Central Australia Mr Blacket said “Many young Aborigines in Central Australia and Arnhem Land have turned to Jesus Christ from drugs and petrol sniffing, worshipping the Lord in new songs in their own languages.
There is deep repentance that we haven’t seen for over 25 years.” Mr Blacket went on “There is also a lot of prayer and symbolic acts for healing the land, and a move to work through deep cultural issues like we have never seen. So many of our dreams and heart cries of 20 years are beginning to happen! But there is a need for a Holy Spirit inspired revelation of God’s word – both the Word and the Spirit together. There still tends to be too much of a divide between those clinging to the historical roots of missionary evangelical teaching and literal understanding of the Bible in rather legalistic ways – and those moving in a renewed understanding of the power of the Spirit that is often lacking in Scriptural foundation.”
The recent release of scriptures translated into Aboriginal languages is helping people to know and understand the Word of God. Mr Blacket has requested prayer for continued revelation to flow through the Word of God of the power of His love to tear down the walls of division that continues to hinder the progress of healing that needs to occur in a number of communities.
