Prophetic, Apostolic Voices Declare Revival Among First People
As tribes from across the United States and Canada assemble today in Washington, D.C. for the second, annual National Day of Prayer by First Nations, Native Christians will hear from leaders within government, education and the church.
On the eve of the day-long event at Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall, First Nations people with ties to Asia, Israel and America heard from prophetic voices within the church at a pre-gathering Thursday night.
Pastor Ed Watts from Gateway Church in Flint, Michigan prophesied revival is coming to Indian reservations. "We say the reservations are on reserve for an end-time visitation," said Watts, who also directs the House of Prayer and Equipping (Hope Center) in Flint as an apostolic leader.
He delivered a powerful prophetic word about God's desire to heal the nation—referred to as Turtle Island by natives—and to unite first people. "There is a divine alignment coming with first people: the First Nations with the First Nation, Israel," said Watts, who cited Zechariah 8:11-12 and other Scriptures.
Watts also presented gifts to leaders of the National Day of Prayer by First Nations and its founder, Dr. Negiel Bigpond, a Yuchi Indian from Oklahoma. Each received a silver plumb line, a symbol Watts used to describe God's purposes for First Nations people.
