April 2013, Oudtshoorn, Cango Caves, South Africa. The Lord told David: ‘My GLORY is coming, get ready!’
June 2015, The Hague, The Netherlands, separation time for 90 days. In that period David had two encounters with the Lord Jesus and many encounters with the Holy Spirit. During the first encounter, the Lord Jesus showed David while walking in the inner city of The Hague, how His Church is in ruïn [Nehemiah 2:17] and how He wept for the lost souls. The second encounter with the Lord Jesus was during David’s prayer walk at night telling him that it will only take a short time to meet Him at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb [Revelation 19:6-9].
The encounters with the Holy Spirit caused David to weep most of the time during this 3 months period. Asking the Lord why he wept so much the Lord replied: “You mainly weep for 2 groups, the lost souls and the apostate (lukewarm) church. On a certain day while weeping before the Lord, David cried out: ‘Father, they do not see.’ This indicates the apostate church is blind and is not yet ready for the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Two moments occurred in this period (2015) the Lord asked David to give up everything. The first time David replied: ‘Yes Lord, I will go!’ The second time heI replied: ‘Yes Lord, I go!’
The Mandate the Lord gave in this period: ‘Bring and Establish Apostolic Reformation into the Nations.’ The Preparation of the Bride.
Mission India & Thailand 2015 – 2017
After these 90 days in 2015 David was directed to India, he sold his house, his car and sowed all his belongings. With 2 suitcases left he went to India, Andhra Pradesh. He ministered for 3 weeks and trained outreach teams and taught on Praise and Intercession. He directed the pastors to appoint elders and initiated a baptismservice for members. In December 2015 David travelled from India to Thailand to do the same as in India for 8 months. In addition I studied the Book of Revelation thoroughly for 240 hours. Both mission trips were followed by many miracles, signs and wonders. As the Lord instructed me to go back to The Netherlands, he bought a ticket without knowing were to go. Two days before his departure (the day of the coupe in Turkey) a person that had not contacted him for 10 years phoned him and asked how he was doing. god provided a wonderful solution again.
