Witness the Past. Be a Part of the Future.
We invite you to participate and be a part of what God is doing
November 20-22, 2015
I had the express honor and pleasure of attending the recent Glory Explosion conference in Seminole, Oklahoma with Apostles Ron and Tyda Harvey of Harvest Time Network Ministry and the leadership of United Tribes for Christ Fellowship.
This year the summit was held in historic Seminole, Oklahoma as an act of prophetic release of the Spirit of God for the Native American people both in this city, and in Oklahoma. Margalee Hylton, its founder, said this was the most difficult of all summits for which she prepared. She holds them worldwide in differing countries, but this time the mandate was for Seminole, Oklahoma. God is again speaking on behalf of the Native American people through His apostles and prophets, taking back territory from the enemy and bringing a great release of His anointing and His Spirit.
All of us were blessed by the worship of New Creations of Seminole, Oklahoma, and the powerful release of God’s vision for His people!
Below Apostles Ron & Tyda Harvey of Harvest Time Network Ministry, Founders of Gathering of Tribal Nations, speaks succinctly to the vision, mandate and mission God has given to fulfill a prophetic move of God among the Native American people.

FIRST NATIONS OF NORTH AMERICA
MEETING ON PRAYER MOUNTAIN
November 4 – 7th, 2014
In early November 2014 thirty-nine tribes from the United States and Canada gathered on Prayer Mountain in Branson, Missouri to covenant with Israel in an event hosted by Dr. Billye Brim.
More than two hundred people gathered for four days of worship, anointed speaking, and to declare covenant with Israel. Israel’s Consul General came to receive this sacred declaration of covenant as well as many gifts the Native leaders bestowed. He also participated in playing the sacred drum in worship. This show of friendship, love, unity, and support left him overwhelmed with gratitude. With tears in his eyes, he proclaimed he couldn’t wait to return to Israel to tell his people about the love the Native nations had for Israel. He reported he had never before witnessed such an open display of affection, unity and support.
In a solemn ceremony the land was dedicated back to God and the LORD immediately responded with a sun dog in the sky, which Billye reported was a confirmation which God had spoken to her twenty years prior. It finally came to pass. We all stood in awe as we witnessed this miraculous sign in the heavens the very moment we closed in prayer.

A sun dog suddenly appears in the sky immediately following the closing prayer. We all rejoice in awe of God’s glorious prophetic response.
HEALING OF THE NATIONS
HASKELL INDIAN NATIONS UNIVERSITY CELEBRATES 130 YEARS
October 10-12th, 2014
When Patricia Main of Haskell LIGHT campus ministry spoke to me about Haskell’s 130th Anniversary intersecting with Sukkot, and wanting to bring in Jewish dancers, I was at a total loss. However, as I prayed I knew that God was up to something much bigger than just an anniversary celebration. And so did she. We trusted God. With Sukkot being the most joyous of all God’s holy feasts, we knew God wanted to do something special for the Native people. No doubt this was a sign. God wanted to fully restore HOPE and bring an anointing oil of joy to His people. God again spoke Isaiah 61 to Patricia, and this was the promise we held to.
Plans were confirmed with Broken Walls who would perform each day bringing the release of God’s Holy Spirit through Indigenous worship, song and dance. Speakers were confirmed and flights were booked. Patricia and I collaborated to put up flyers and spread the word. As preparations continued I developed a webpage and email list, believing God to bring the people He wanted there.
God delivered! A group from New Zealand even came to perform their ancient warrior dance to bless the Native people. More than this, many attended to worship God and support the Native people as they celebrated Sukkot unto the Lord. As it turned out, those who loved Israel came, and once again the unity among Native people and Israel was personified in the One New Man spoken of in Ephesians.
It was an amazing weekend full of God’s glory!
A TIME OF HEALING AND RESTORATION
NATIVE AMERICAN AWARENESS MONTH
Haskell Indian Nations University | Lawrence, Kansas
November 14th, 2013
During the Time of Healing and Restoration, headed by Haskell LIGHT campus ministry, in which the film, We Were Children, was shown, Haskell Indian Nations University had the honor and pleasure of Kansas Governor, Sam Brownback’s, presence as he spoke to the multiple issues the Native American people faced in their long history within Kansas and the government institution in which so many of their atrocities were realized.
Governor Brownback made a public proclamation that had never before been done, acknowledging the abuses that had occurred with notable public apologies and an official statement decreeing the mutual support of Haskell in its endeavors to move forward in a constructive relationship toward all Native American peoples.
The night was one to remember, being politically, morally, and spiritually significant.

East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
September 18 – 25th, 2013
Again, less than two weeks later, God raised up the standard among His Native American people, the host people of this land.
APPA (All Peoples Prayer Assembly, a.k.a. The Deep Sea Canoe Vision) which is based in the Solomon Islands under Michael Maeliau, hosted this event which was held in East Stroudsburg, PA. People from all over the world came, including many in attendance at Eagle Rock, MO. Although the two events were entirely unrelated, many of the same individuals were present.
Lura Olander, head of Soaring Eagles Ministries in Arizona, was in charge of organizing the assembly which numbered more than 100 souls. Members of local tribes and nations were in attendance as well, including the Mohawks, who came to welcome, bless and honor us that the will of God may be established according to His Word.
This area of the US (the Eastern Gate) represents where the very first introduction of the European nations to the host people of this land took place. It also represents where many of the atrocities were initiated and carried out by the American government. During this Feast spiritual business with God was officially conducted. Many hours and days were spent in repentance, intercession, and prayer. We also celebrated the work of God among His Native people with worship and dance.
Nations represented by those in attendance included: The United States, Canada, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, England, Israel, Malaysia, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Fiji, The Solomon Islands, and more. Every nation had an opportunity to introduce their own worship and dance, which was an enormous blessing to participate in!
APPA (the Deep Sea Canoe Vision) has been holding gatherings around the world since 1987. According to founder, Michael Maeliau, this particular gathering was reported to be the largest and most powerful APPA gathering to date. APPA’s goal is to prepare the way for the return of Christ by uniting believers with Israel worldwide in bringing the tidal wave of God’s glory back to Israel where the Gospel of Christ originated. APPA will celebrate its final gathering in 2017 in Jerusalem upon the 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth as a nation. You can read more about APPA in Michael Maeliau’s book, The Deep Sea Canoe Vision. If you are interested in participating in APPA, please contact us.

A CALL TO AWAKEN THE NORTH AMERICAN BRIDE
Eagle Rock, Missouri
September 3 – 7th, 2013
After a time of fasting and prayer Robert Misst and his wife received instruction from the Lord to hold a solemn assembly during Rosh Hashanah for this strategic purpose: To call forth the North American bride, specifically the Native American and First Nations people, whom God wanted to fully restore to their rightful place as the host people of this land. God wanted to sound a trumpet over the Native American/First Nations people giving a clarion call to awaken this sleeping giant with a mandate to arise and fulfill their destiny within the Body of Christ. In response, and under God’s careful guidance, this holy feast was hosted in a collaborative effort by Robert Misst of Australia and Jill Shannon of Israel. As they sought God for a location, God pointed them to Eagle Rock, Missouri.
Those in attendance, numbering just over a one hundred souls, were hand-picked by God from all over the world. I had the immense honor and privilege of attending with others from Australia, England, China, Taiwan, Israel, and the Pacific Islands to name a just a few. Not only were national and racial lines dissolved, but denominational barriers were broken as well. People from many diverse denominations were represented, including the Amish. The Spirit of God visited us with an incredible grace and unity I had never witnessed before that was far unsurpassed. As a result the anointing, blessing and presence of God were palpable. The fire came.
Rosh Hashanah (also known as the Head of the Year or the Feast of Trumpets) is the beginning of Israel’s new year which is marked by seven trumpets. This year God singled out His Native American people with the release of a tremendous blessing! Their time of restoration is here, and He wanted to make their appointed time clear to His global Church. People from all over the world celebrated this mandate with a unified voice of agreement, love and support that left the Native people overwhelmed and shocked. God has a specific calling to the Native American people within His Body that no other nation can fulfill. Their appointed time is NOW. This was one of the most powerful gatherings I have ever attended! Here the covenant the thirty-nine tribes initiated was read and declared again before this solemn assembly. It was here that I and many others had the enormous honor and privilege of signing the covenant declaration the thirty-nine tribes made with Israel in 2012, which was presented to Israel’s Knesset.
A new day for the Native American people is here! Their time has come!
Worship around the chuppah.
ONE NEW MAN
THE NAVAJO NATION DECLARES A COVENANT WITH ISRAEL
Farmington, New Mexico
December 12th, 2011
Although I did not participate in this event, I feel it is necessary to share it with you, precisely because it is a first-fruit of what God is doing today among the Native people and Israel.
In December 2011 the Navajo Nation declared a covenant with Israel that has initiated a move of God among the Native American people all over North America. This was the first official covenant a Native nation ever made with Israel, which was present to Israel’s Knesset. Since that time thirty-nine tribes have gathered to covenant with Israel on more than one occasion. In like manner, these were also presented to Israel’s Knesset. This has opened the windows of heaven for restoration among the Native/First Nations people like never before. This effects of this “first fruit” between the Native nations and Israel is continuing to spread today.
This covenant declaration the Navajo people made with Israel was presented to Israel’s Knesset and was received with great joy. You may view the covenant document HERE.
Israel and the Native people have much in common. Not only are they a tribal people, but each has survived their own holocaust. There are also linguistic similarities and cultural practices that each have come to identify as nothing less than ancient Hebrew. How has this happened? No one really knows. But in the early 1990’s when Linda Prince took a team of Native dancers to worship and bless Israel, they began to sing songs at the Western Wall that left the Orthodox Rabbi’s astonished, which brought all ceremonies to a screeching halt. The Native people had been singing ancient Hebrew songs and chants that only the most devout Jews could have known. After discussion, it was finally concluded there has somehow been an ancient tie that today remains a mystery. Are Native people of Jewish ancestry? It is quite possible. Both Israel and many Native people feel and see a deep connection that is very real.
Rabbi Robert Wolff of Majestic Glory Ministries has worked among the Navajo for several years. Watch these videos (courtesy of Majestic Glory Ministries) to witness this ONE NEW MAN event in which the Navajo have covenanted with Israel, and get a glimpse of what the future holds!
