How did this event evolve?
THE BACKGROUND: July 4th, 1981 Dr. Horvath heard the audible voice of God saying to him, “I am calling you to be an Assemblies of God minister, to be a light in a dark place, and to be a bridge builder.” Simultaneously, he had an open vision of a ball bouncing on the map of the U.S.A. and before his eyes the map morphed into a series of 7000 Islands and the ball bounced from the north to the south over every major city of the Philippines and from the bottom south all the way back up to the top, around the top and back down, 3 times the ball bounced over every major city of the nation.
For the past 17 years, Dr. Horvath and the JHM teams have been traveling to the Philippines doing Greater Miracle Crusades from the North to the South in 28 cities of the nation, leading more then 350,000 Filipinos to Christ, and have trained over 35,000 leaders in their Schools of Ministry.
When the teams got to the ball bouncing near Manila, the Holy Spirit said, “Do not go into Manila, You are not ready for Manila and Manila is not ready for you.” The ball bounced over Manila, and the ministry moved down through the rest of the cities to the south, and came to the bottom in 2011.
A SECOND VISION: Dr. Horvath was in prayer with one of the JHM board members praying about the plan as the “Ball Bounced Back Up” through the nation. As they were praying, Dr. Horvath had a second vision of the map of Manila and before his eyes the map grew into a volcano and then exploded into the 35 cites of the nation that the JHM team had held crusades. Then the Holy Spirit said to Dr. Horvath, “Now You are Ready for Manila and Manila is Ready for You! I have given you these relationships with many different ministries for such a time as this. I want you to bring these ministries to Manila and hold Crusades across the city in different locations and move the speakers around - and I want you to challenge each ministry to then fly out with their team and take one of the 35 cites for Jesus.”
