ANHOP開始於2001年9月9日,兩天之後911事件就發生了,當時我們曾問神為什麼?而教會又叫萬國禱告的殿(以賽亞書Isa56:7)。所以,我們進入到禱告,2003年開始長時間的禁食,之後聖靈將敬拜的恩膏賜下,所有的人在聖靈中自行學會各種樂器並且進到琴與爐的敬拜。2003年5月神親自給我們話,並且不同的屬靈長輩在不知情下也一一的告訴我們神要設立大衛的帳幕在ANHOP。

這幾年ANHOP在無人教導下,由聖靈親自帶領,從認真持守讀神的話語,到聖靈工作運動的運行,經歷了聖靈權能,敬拜讚美,禱告,禁食禱告,先知性的話語,內在醫治,琴與爐,24小時敬拜。從馬丁路德改革宗教開始到如今,歷史上發生了很多復興運動,而這一連串的運動也不知不覺發生在我們當中。到底神要告訴我們甚麼呢?神要向祂的子民說甚麼呢 ?

直到2010年秋天,當我們在歐洲教導TOD時,神突然讓我們明白,911事件與阿摩司书Amos9:11“到那日,我必建立大衛倒塌的帳幕,堵住其中的破口,把那破壞的建立起來,重新修造,像古時一樣。”之間的關連。因為在出埃及記25:8中,耶和華對摩西說:“又當為我造聖所,使我可以住在他們中間。”於是,摩西為耶和華建造帳幕。後來直到大衛王時,大衛將約櫃重新迎回,並依照摩西帳幕的模式設立帳幕。摩西帳幕注重的是律法的儀式,但大衛帳幕所注重的是敬拜,藉著敬拜來與神同在,因為神的寶座是設立在敬拜中.

歷次的復興都持續一段時間之後就銷聲匿跡,神只能來造訪,並不是來與我們同住。但現在神是要與我們同住,並不要只是造訪。以賽亞書Isa66:1“耶和華如此說:“天是我的座位,地是我的腳凳。你們要為我造何等的殿宇?哪里是我安息的地方?”神要的是祂的子民,為祂重建大衛的帳幕,是要我們為祂預備居所。

如今大衛的帳幕所應俱備的不是器具,而是人與神之間的親密關係,觸摸神的心意,從神的寶座能力就流出來。將神的心意宣告,觸摸人的心,使人生命改變,不是藉著人手。醫治,釋放,先知性話語,神蹟奇事因著神的同在就發生在當中。所以,我們願意將我們所做的大衛帳幕的設立過程與大家分享。

All Nations House of Prayer (ANHOP) was founded on September 9, 2001; two days before the 9/11 attacks that shook the world. At that time, we sought God why it happened. As we were called to be the “All Nations House of Prayer” (Isaiah 56:7), we began this church with prayers and starting in 2003 with long periods of fasting. After this, the Holy Spirit poured out a worship anointing and many received the gift of playing musical instruments through the teaching of the Holy Spirit which led to the harp & bowl worship. In May 2003, God first spoke to us about the Tabernacle of David and confirmed His word through various spiritual leaders and coverings of this church, that God wants to establish the Tabernacle of David in ANHOP.

Having been led and guided by no one other than the Holy Spirit, in the past few years, ANHOP went through a journal that began with consistent studying of the Word of God. We experienced the Holy Spirit at work, from praise and worship to prayer and intercession, from the release of prophetic words to inner healing, from harp and bowl to 24-hour praise and worship, a series of movements that coincided with the revival movements in the history of Christianity beginning with the Martin Luther Reform, beyond all our understanding and expectation, was taking place in our midst. What is God trying to tell us? What is He trying to say to His People?

Until 2010 fall, when we were traveling in Europe teaching about the Tabernacle of David, God suddenly revealed to us the connections between 911 and 9:11 of the Book of Amos “In that day I will restore David’s fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be (NIV)” God spoke to Moses in Exodus 25:8 “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them” and so Moses built a tabernacle for God. Then came the time of King David when he welcomed the ark of God back and built a new tabernacle according to the design of Moses’ tabernacle. What distinguishes the Tabernacle of David from the former one is that the former tabernacle focused on rituals of the laws, while the Tabernacle of David stresses on worship and encountering God through worship, as God Himself is enthroned in worship.

Many revival movements in the history of Christianity lasted only a limited period of time during which God made visits with His people. Nevertheless, God desires not only a visitation, but habitation among us. Isaiah 66:1 “This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be?” What He desires is that His people, to restore the Tabernacle of David, a place where he can dwell.

Nowadays, the existence of the Tabernacle of David is not just about the articles in the physical tabernacle itself but rather an intimate personal relationship with God that touches the very heart of God and unleashes His power from His throne. It is not by the work of man but through the word of God to touch the hearts of people and to bring transformation in their lives. The manifestation of His presence will ultimately bring forth healing, deliverance, prophetic messages and signs and wonders. This is why we are compelled to share with you our own experience in building the Tabernacle of David.
