“Hāere mai, hāere mai, hāere mai rā. Maranga mai Aotearoa. Ka hāere mai nga Iwi katoa i hanga e Koe, a ka koropiko ki tau aroaro, e Te Ariki, ka whakakororia hoki i tou ingoa”.
All nations whom thou has made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord and shall glorify Thy Name (Ps 86:9) Karanga mai, karanga mai, karanga mai o nga hau e wha, karanga mai, karanga mai, karanga mai rā”
The Holy Spirit breathed life and ignited those words “HIKOI of the LORD”.
The Holy Spirit is calling His Bride “Maranga mai (arise), Rise up my Beloved” It’s Time!
Yes It’s Time! The Footprint of faith is deep and wide in this land. God’s Hikoi is a collective unification of ministries/churches hosted by 40 Marae around NZ. We are heeding the call of the Holy Spirit to “Arise and Awake the Nation” to invite, to unite, and move through our nation, from City to City, from Marae to Marae.
We invite You into the Marae of Aotearoa, to stand shoulder to shoulder, brother to brother, sister to sister, stretching His tent pegs over the very foundations of our nation. This is a karanga to the frontline, a nationwide movement of the saints under ONE NAME – Ihu Karaiti – Jesus Christ. His NAME unites us beyond church denominations, beyond ministries, beyond cultures, gender, hapu, and Iwi. a prophetic assignment moving as “One Waka, One Nation, One People”.
Its time! The footprint of faith is deep and wide in this land, and God’s fingerprint is on our nation for such a time as this. From Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga) and moving down from the North. That’s 40 Marae over 12 weeks, and every 3rd day we rise and move to the next Marae and so on.
You are welcome to join God’s Hikoi at any location near you.
On Waitangi Day 6th Feb at 12pm, we will travel to Oihi Bay where the first Gospel sermon was preached to pray, worship and Dedicate the Hikoi to the Lord. On Thurs the 7th Feb at 10am, we will leave Waitangi, drive to Cape Reinga for the official 2pm launch to Dedicate God’s Hikoi to the Nation, to sound the trumpets “to assemble the people” to release the Nations’ sound from the North, and to Powhiri the King of Glory and begin the God’s Hikoi.
From there we will move from Marae to Marae, sweeping down from the North, to the East Coast, to the West Coast, to the South Island and finishing at the Chatham Islands around the 3rd week of April 2019. Remember: “40 Marae, over 12 weeks, every 3rd day we rise”
Together we all have a piece to the puzzle and together we complete the God’s picture for our nation!
