King of Glory

Australian Indigenous Leaders Sign Historic Covenant to Stand with Israel at King of Glory Convocation 2023

12 March 2024

11.2 MINS

On 11–13 October 2023, “Welcome the King of Glory” was held in Jerusalem. This historic event joined Jew and Gentile together in covenant allegiance to Jesus.

It is with deep gratitude that I was able to be a part of the historic “Welcome the King of Glory” (WTKOG) gathering from 11–13 October 2023. WTKOG was appropriately held in Jerusalem – the “city of the great King” (Matt 5:35). At this historic event, messianic Jewish and Arab Christian leaders joined together with leaders from the Pacific Islands and four other nations.

For the past several years, leaders of WTKOG from across Israel have been walking together in unity. Since the first WTKOG gathering in 2017 (and reaffirmed at the second gathering in 2019), they have been meeting monthly to pray for the fulfilment of this event. For some history and recordings of the 2023 gathering, please see the sessions of WTKOG below.

But how did this gathering in Jerusalem come about?

God’s Amazing Providential Timing

It was in God’s sovereign timing that WTKOG was scheduled. As it turned out, it took place during the first week of the Hamas war with Israel after the Hamas terrorist attacks on 7 October.

God ordains His times and seasons and has a plan for all nations. He is the King of Glory, who chose Jerusalem and calls all the nations to come up to it (Isa 2:3). He is our faithful covenant-keeping Father who made His covenant with Abraham (Gen 15:7–21).

Our Indigenous elders came to covenant our nation of Australia to God. They had come into agreement to sign the WTKOG new covenant on behalf of our nation. The war had already started when they commenced their journeys to Israel. They could have turned around and gone home. But they didn’t.

We honour our Indigenous team’s courage and commitment to come to Israel during the sudden war that had started. These leaders joined with other Australian believers who were already praying in the land [see Appendix 1]. They were resolute to stay until their assignment was completed.

Background to Welcome the King of Glory

Approximately 30 years ago, Rev Michael Maeliau – a prophet from the Solomon Islands – received a vision from the Lord of ‘Deep Sea Canoes’. In this vision, people from the Pacific islands were going up to Jerusalem at a time of trouble. They stood with Israel to give honour to the Holy God of Israel.

I was blessed to meet Rev Maeliau the first time I visited Jerusalem. This was at the All Nations Convocation Jerusalem (ANCJ) on 29 September 2000. (On this same day Israeli PM Ariel Sharon walked onto the Temple Mount and the Intifada started.)

I remember being so grateful as this dear man asked me if I was from Australia. He wondered whether I would pray with him for the South Pacific Islands to come together to respond to God’s call to stand with Israel.

I was delighted to pray and learn from Rev Michael, and he taught me so much from the Bible for many years when we met at the ANCJ. I would like to honour Rev Michael as a spiritual father in the faith to me and to so many.

It was a great privilege to participate this year at the WTKOG gathering to see his vision [see Appendix 3] come to fulfilment. Rev Michael went home to be with the Lord on 14 October 2021. But under Milo Siilata – the present leader of the Pacific nations – Michael’s vision has become a reality.

Preparing the Way: Australia’s Breaking Off False Allegiance

The covenant signed at WTKOG was a pledge of allegiance to the one true God (Deut 4:35). This covenant of allegiance would be impossible unless all other binding agreements to foreign gods were broken off first. Then, and only then, would representatives of the South Pacific nations be given an invitation to come up to Jerusalem.

Before coming up to Jerusalem, Australian Indigenous leaders led by elder Richard Evans had gone out to Uluru for a time of repentance. Those at the Uluru Solemn Assembly, held from September 22–25, repented of wrong allegiances, spiritual ties and sin (see 2 Chron 7:14). The Lord’s forgiveness prepared the way for these Indigenous leaders and our nation to be covenanted to Jesus Christ.

Preparing the Way: Israel’s Breaking Off False Allegiance

The first day of WTKOG on 11 October was indeed a solemn assembly in the Lord. It was also the fifth day of the Gaza–Israel war.

On this day, Israeli leaders stood in unity together as the “one new man in Christ” (Eph 2:15) [See Appendix 4]. They stood in humility, in a time of deep repentance for Israel’s breaking of God’s covenants through idolatry, immorality and the shedding of innocent blood.

Signing the Covenant

On the same day that the Israeli leaders repented before the Lord, they then signed and witnessed together a new covenant with God [see Appendix 2].

By signing this covenant, they surrendered themselves to full allegiance to welcome Jesus, as the King of Glory, to His holy capital city of Jerusalem. From His throne, He will rule and reign over the land of Israel and ultimately all nations (Zech 14:9, 16–17).

(At the same time that the messianic leaders signed their covenant, God orchestrated the Agreement for the Unity Government to be signed in the Knesset.)

Australian Indigenous Elders Sign the Covenant

Australia was the second nation to sign the WTKOG covenant. The signing, led by elder Richard Evans, took place on the first day of the gathering on 11 October.

As I saw them signing the covenant document, it took me back to the gathering God had orchestrated on 8 August 2008 called “Your Kingdom Come, A New Day for Australia”.

This took place in the Great Hall of our Federal Parliament. At that place, all the participants present at the Celebration Betrothal Banquet of the Bride of Christ to Jesus Messiah our Bridegroom, signed and thanked Jesus Christ for sealing the New Covenant in His precious blood. As a result of His blood, all of us are one in Him, both Jew and Gentile. We then celebrated communion led by Warwick Marsh and Ps Peter Walker.

It was as if that gathering back in 2008 was a forerunner of what I was witnessing in Jerusalem at the WTKOG gathering in October 2023. How I praised and thanked God for how He has led us as a prayer movement to be walking together! How beautiful it is to have all nations worshipping the Lord together before His throne, for His will to be done on earth as in heaven!

Concluding the Convention

On the third day (13 October) Indigenous elder Richard Evans, on behalf of the Indigenous peoples of Australia, graciously stood in the gap to forgive the white people of Australia.

Caption: One New Man Aussie Team joyfully celebrating and praying after elder Richard Evens had forgiven the ‘white fella’. God’s presence fell after we had been blessed by the messianic and Arab leaders.

After this, the Australian representatives received many powerful blessings from the messianic and Arab Christian leaders. These included that a one-world government would not take control of Australia.

The closing ceremony ended with sealing all prayers and covenant commitments in communion through the shed blood of Christ.

This is the hour when God says He is judging the nations to see whether they will stand with or against Israel. I believe Australia’s signing was of great significance for our nation in the spiritual realm.

This was immediately shown in the natural realm the day after – 14 October – with the overturning of the Voice proposal to change our Constitution.

I believe we will continue to see God’s blessing flow to this nation as a result of the faithful response of our Indigenous leaders in particular, to this WTKOG call to go up to Jerusalem.

Together we say, we welcome You! Come, Lord Jesus come!

Appendix 2: The New Covenant for this Israel Declaration by Reuven Berger

  1. The birthing of the One New Man at the national level for the first time in the history of the Church since the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the past 2,000 years of the Gospel, the One New Man was seen through individual Jewish and Gentile believers coming together in Christ. But from now on, the One New Man will operate at the national level as nations, where the Israel of God and the Gentile covenanted nations will be united through the Yeshua the Messiah.
  2. The Launching of the Olive Tree of Israel, where the messianic Jews were regrafted back into their own Olive Tree, followed by a handful of nations (mainly from the Pacific) being grafted into the Olive Tree of Israel – through making a covenant with God.
  3. The Restoration of Israel and the nations according to Acts 3:19–21. This restoration includes the separation of God’s people from the unbelievers as well. This is just the beginning of the restoration of God’s people in Israel and the nations, through the Messiah.
  4. Specific restoration of the boundaries for Israel and the nations who were covenanted to God, according to the seasons, appointed times and boundaries predetermined by God (Deut 32:8; Acts 17:26). The current war in Israel is just the beginning of the full restoration of all the land given by God to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants forever.

Papa Emmanuel Fave had a vision during the night after Reuven Berger read their Covenant restoration with God. In the vision, he saw an old navigating pen drawing maps with boundaries. The next morning, the Lord explained that after Israel and the few nations made a covenant with God, God would readjust the boundaries of these nations according to His will and not according to man.

  1. Israel to receive their full angelic army from God. Once a nation divorces its ancient false gods and re-covenants itself to God, God will then release their own angelic prince and angelic army.
  2. God will also start to reveal the godly name for each covenanted nation according to the destiny of God for that nation. Most nations in the Pacific and the world have the wrong names. Some of our nations were named by our fallen angels. Some were renamed by the colonial powers.
  3. God will also start to reveal His destiny for each covenanted nation. This destiny will include God’s gifts and calling for each covenanted nation.

Appendix 3: Prophetic Word of Cocoon Breakout from Caterpillars to Butterflies

During our first WTKOG gathering in Israel in 2017, the Prophet Rev Michael Maeliau received the word that “The Lord will take us through a period in the cocoon to transform us from caterpillars into butterflies.”

During our second WTKOG in Nazareth in December 2019, I thought we would break out as butterflies from our cocoon by then. But I was wrong.

Instead of coming out of our cocoons, we got pushed further into them through the next three years of COVID-19 from 2020 to 2022.

On 2 January 2023, our sister Janet Maki from the Cook Islands received a vision of a butterfly breaking out of a cocoon. She believes the Lord will call the nations as butterflies to Jerusalem to adorn the Lord and to form a crown for the Lord as He prepares to go to war. Janet Maki also believes that 2023 is the year for our breakthrough as butterflies/nations for the Lord. (October 11–13, nine months later, was the birthing of this vision into the natural realm.)

Appendix 4: Scriptures Relating to the Relationship Between Jews and Gentiles

God’s heart for His Jewish people and the Gentile nations being grafted into Yeshua, the root of the True Olive Tree is expounded by the Apostle Paul in Romans chapter 11: 1, 11–15, 25–27, 28–35.

1 I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew.

11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles.  12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! 13 For I speak to you Gentiles; in as much as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.  15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?.

25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; 27 For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins.”.

28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.  30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy.  32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.

33 Oh, the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! 34 “For who has known the mind of the LORD? Or who has become His counsellor?”
35 “Or who has first given to Him And it shall be repaid to him?”.

From Rom 11:25–27, it is very clear that the fullness of the Gentiles will lead to the salvation of all Israel, through their New Covenant with God, where God promised to forgive their sins. Jeremiah 31:33–34 states:

33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

No Gentile nation can reach its fullness unless they are in alignment with the God of Israel. Throughout the Bible, God calls His people Israel to come back into covenant with Himself (e.g. Hosea 14). He promises them restoration back to Himself when they repent – which they did on 11 October 2023. As the messianic leaders signed and witnessed that new covenant, at the same time in the Knesset (Government of Israel), the Agreement for a Unity Government was also signed. This was so strategic for an undivided Israel to be able to fight and be victorious in this war. By God’s grace, as the war intensifies, more and more IDF personnel are seeking God and yielding to Yeshua as their Lord and Saviour. The messianic leaders signing the covenant and surrendering to the Lordship of Yeshua was like laying a foundation stone in Zion. It’s initiating the Lord’s preparation for His return and establishment of His kingdom, as the Lamb’s Bride makes herself ready (Rev 19:7).

    Thank you so much Hilary. WTKOG was of great spiritual significant and this article records the event, both physically and spiritually, beautifully. Thank you for standing in the gap. May the Lord continue to lead and guide the leaders of Oceania with wisdom and discernment as we prepare for the King’s soon return.

    Thank you so much, Hilary, for sharing your knowledge – drawn from personal experience in Israel at this most challenging time, for putting it into Biblical context, and shining the Light of Christ onto unfolding events to encourage us and inspire deep intercession.

    Thank you Hilary for your role in spiritual leadership and intercession and for writing this article. I was longing for news of the event and praying for all there, as were many others. It was such a significant in the prophetic calendar – sine this agreement was made between the Pacific nations and Australia at ‘such a time as this’- just after Israel was attacked by the Hamas. It was wonderful that that Australia and the Pacific nations could stand with Israel in solidarity, prayer and friendship at a time when every Jewish person was in trauma.
    Thanking God for each one who attended and the blessing it represents for Israel to have Indigenous leaders and people stand with them, acknowledging Gods chosen people

    I just stumbled on this article and was so excited. I ‘m American and nobody special but I had a two dreams and revelations regarding your country.
    In the first I was over the Australia as it was being created, expanding into the ocean on every side. It was immediately completely green and lush .
    Then I saw a huge dark cloud arise over the center of the continent covering about 2/3 of the land mass.
    I knew the cloud was demonic.
    Then I witnessed God very easily blow this huge cloud away. It was immediately dispersed.
    I knew it was time for His rescue.(153).
    I awoke and thought Australia was anything but the lush garden I had seen. It’s all dried up and always on fire.
    This is indicative of the curse it has been under. It’s time for rescue and His move always follows repentance and turning from our sins. Our sin of not loving Him and our brothers as ourselves. The two greatest commandments.
    Only the blood of Christ can atone for our breach of covenant.
    Subsequent to this dream He showed me that His move will begin in Brisbane as His Gateway City and move across the nation from east to west, just as the sun rises and spreads across the land.
    I believe He’s even shown me the gateway church in Brisbane that He would like to use but I know that it’s predicated on purity in leadership and the congregation.
    In another dream I was a butterfly emerging from the cocoon.
    This all resonates with me. We’re on the starting line.
    Subsequent to my dreams for Australia I was serving at an evangelical outreach in Los Angeles and He introduced me to a brother named Byron Hamilton, author of the book “The Reformation of Church Leadership.” I met him standing next to my car. I noticed his accent and he told me he was from Australia. I said hmm I had a dream and God showed me He’s going to rescue Australia and it’s going to begin in Brisbane.
    He said I’m from Brisbane!😉
    Praise Jesus!
    Please pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send more workers.

    It’s Jeff Woods from America again.
    This may be old news to you all but was a wonderful discovery for me.
    A new Indigenous Peoples Embassy was opened in Jerusalem earlier this year!
    I believe it ties in with the event in Israel last October and appears to me a clear sign that the Father has accepted your prayers of repentance and covenant. As in my earlier relayed dream, He will heal your lands. Because of His promise we see demonic opposition arising in the islands. So we’re called to pray but His promise is assured. Praise Him!
    Check out this article.
    My friend was just at the messianic Shabbat gathering at Gateway church in Grapevine, Texas and brother Mike Evans, Friends of Zion spoke there. As you can see, this new Indigenous peoples Jerusalem embassy is located on their campus in Jerusalem.
