Important Update About the Speakers in light of the crucial situation in Israel
Dear Esteemed Delegates of the Asia Messianic Conference, Goa 2023,
We hope this message finds you well and excited about the upcoming AMF conference in Goa as much as we are to welcoming you at this significant and crucial messianic conference. We want to update you on the situation regarding our Israeli speakers at the conference.
Despite the ongoing challenges in Israel, we are delighted to announce that Pastor Joseph Shulam from Jerusalem will attend the conference in person, and all the other speakers will be speaking virtually (online).
We are honored to have an array of distinguished speakers from Israel and the Nations. We have taken steps to ensure that you receive valuable insights and teachings from the land of Israel. We are privileged to announce that four prominent pastors from Israel, Eitan Shishkoff from Tents of Mercy, Peter Tsukahira from Kehilat Or HaCarmel, Ron Cantor from God TV, and Evan Thomas from Beit Asaph, will be joining us virtually to share what the Lord has laid on their hearts for the Church in India at this time. Their virtual presence will allow us to learn the importance of Israel and our calling as God’s servants towards our Jewish brothers and sisters.
We are also excited to have seasoned pastor and teacher Gilbert Carthigasu from One New Man Asia, Singapore, and Andrew Yelchuri from Chosen People Ministries, India, a minister to the Jewish people in the US and India, who will share about the One New Man and Priority 1:16 insights in person.
The Lord has given us this privilege and opportunity during this crucial time to understand His heart for Israel and to stand in support of the Jewish people to pray for peace in Jerusalem and the Middle East. Let us unite in faith, hope, and love as we gather at the conference, knowing that our support for Israel, prayers, and fellowship will turn out to be a blessing to the Church in India.
We look forward to a spiritually enriching and uplifting conference, and we appreciate your unwavering support and understanding.
In His service,
The Executive Committee
Asia Messianic Forum, Goa 2023
Asia Messianic Forum 2023
Asia Messianic Forum is a unique international conference of Asian Christians and Israeli Messianic Jews. Since 12 years ago, it has been going around Asian countries and AMF GOA in India will be the seventh conference.
Words From Organizer
We have been part of AMF network since 2011, and witnessed the power and blessings of this Forum. That's why we were happy to receive the flag in Bangkok in 2019. Since then, we have been preparing for the conference, then the pandemic broke out. So, we were forced to switch it to online and hosted the AMF webinar in 2021 from Goa. This was a preparation for the actual AMF in 2023 in India.
Our vision and purpose of this conference is as follows:
Vision For Asia Messianic Forum India
To impart the revelation and the importance of Israel and the Jewish people to the Church.
To bring sound theological and Bible-based teachings on this subject.
To fellowship with the Lord and with each other.
Please find the details on this web site and get connected. We welcome all of you!
Vision of The Organizer
WOW International is a ministry with a commitment to praying for Israel, sharing the revelation of God's love for Israel with the Church, and spreading the message of Yeshua to the Jewish community and then to the Gentiles.
It is our honor to carry out the important task of sharing Israel's message with the Christian community in India and beyond. We are humbled to have been led by God to raise watchmen, as mentioned in Isaiah 62:6,7, and inspire the church to align with Israel. We are confident that this alignment will play a significant role in fulfilling the Great Commission.
As we eagerly await the arrival of Christ, we feel the Spirit guiding us toward a deeper understanding of the messianic movement that is emerging worldwide. Our goal is to connect the body of Christ with this movement.
We have been inspired by our vision to hold the AMF event in India this year. We believe this is a strategic move to unlock the end-time harvest that many in the body of Christ are anticipating in India. Our conviction is that keeping Israel in its God-ordained place is the missing key to unlocking the destiny and purposes of the Lord for the nations. The prophetic destiny of India depends on our choice to stand with Israel and align ourselves with the roots of faith in Yeshua.
The Asia Messianic Forum is a movement that originated in Japan and is now expanding to other regions in the east. Our goal is to unite believers who love Israel and connect them with the messianic community in Israel. This community is made up of Jewish and Gentile followers of Yeshua (Ephesians 2:15) who come together to bless Israel.
Our partnership with AMF has been longstanding, and the opportunity to host the AMF Conference in India had presented itself. We patiently waited for divine guidance and timing. In 2019, we received direction from the Lord to take on the challenge of hosting the Messianic Conference in India in August 2021. However, due to the Covid pandemic, we were compelled to switch to an online webinar. We are grateful that over 600 attendees joined us from across Asia daily, and it was reported that 2000 individuals watched the live webinar through other media platforms. This year, we seek the Lord's guidance and direction, trusting that His glory will be revealed in the fulfillment of His vision.
The theme the Lord gave us for this year's AMF Conference is “Watchmen on the Walls of Jerusalem” taken from Isaiah 62:6.
History and Vision of AMF
Beginning of AMF
In 2009, the Israeli Messianic Leaders proposed the idea of the first Asia Messianic Forum, which was held in Japan. Prior to this conference, they did not have any connections with fellow Christian believers in Asia. However, this gathering facilitated their connection with like-minded individuals from other Asian countries.
Vision of One New Man (Eph 2:15)
We are overjoyed to announce that our Jewish brothers and sisters, who have been separated from us for over two thousand years, are now being restored into the Body of the Messiah (the church). We have gathered here to share this message with as many Christians as possible. It is important to remember that our Jewish brethren once welcomed the Gentile brethren (Acts 15), and now it is our time to show our gratitude and embrace them back into our community (Romans 11).
Development of AMF
Due to its success, we chose to hold the forum biennially. The inaugural forum was attended by Christian representatives from Korea, Singapore, Thailand, and Japan. The second forum, hosted jointly by Korean and Japanese believers, took place in 2011. A flag for the Asia Messianic Forum was created and a flag handing-over ceremony was performed at every subsequent forum.
The third Forum took place in Singapore in 2013, followed by the fourth in Manila, the Philippines in 2015, and the fifth in Hsinchu, Taiwan in 2017. The sixth Forum was held in Bangkok, Thailand in 2019, after which representatives from Goa, India received the flag.
