“Just get it out!”
And out and out it keeps going. In fact, when Henson first received the word to write Say To Archippus, he wondered if a book was really God’s plan for Archippus Awakening.
Back in January 2015, a pastor had spoken these words over Henson, “I see a book coming out of your spirit man!” Along with that, the Lord had said not to worry about how to distribute or how many copies would be sold – just get it out!
On 27 May 2015, Say to Archippus was commissioned. Today, it has entered its fifth print sporting a fresh cover, with more than 6000 copies sold. Today, as we celebrate four years of Say To Archippus, we also celebrate God’s grace and faithfulness!
One of the readers of Say To Archippus, Andrew Ong, is not the only one who testified that the book was a Godsend; he could not put the book down when he started reading it. He was feeling alone and discouraged, often questioning himself if he was a heretic or a rebel in his search for God’s kingdom. God used the material in Say To Archippus to minister deeply to him, comforting him through Henson’s journey. Reading the book has helped Andrew to crystallise his own experiences and make sense of his journey. (Read “I encourage every Christian to read Say To Archippus” – Andrew Ong)
Janicel, a young Filipino who attended the AAA Seminar in Butuan (Philippines), read Say To Archippus and said that the book set her heart on fire! Isn’t it amazing that when Say To Archippus was first commissioned, someone saw the books aglow, another saw the books on fire, and yet another saw angels distributing the books all over the earth? We can only marvel at the awesomeness of our living God.
There is more…
On 27 May 2015, the room that Say To Archippus was commissioned in was one named Mount Carmel. That night, with the books all neatly stacked up, like an altar built to the Lord, He graciously answered by fire (cf 1 Kings 18:24 & 38)! Team Archippus’ commissioning prayer that night, and for many days now, has been that hearts will be set on fire for the Lord as the book is read!
Janicel’s heart is so set on fire for the Lord that she has moved on to share what she has read from Say To Archippus to the young people in her fellowship, that they will also be serious about their faith in God. In her own words, Say To Archippus “pulled slumber out of a bed of roses” for her. She suggested that Say To Archippus should be available in her own language, besides the current Chinese and Bahasa Indonesia versions.
So, what is the message to Archippus? What does the Lord want to say to Archippus?
Paul writes in Colossians 4:17, “And say to Archippus, ‘Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfil it.'” Since Henson received his assignment to sound the clarion call that many will be awakened and raised up as Archippuses who will know and fulfil their God-given kingdom assignments, God has truly been faithful to open many doors for him. Whenever the message is declared, the book Say To Archippus goes out to bless many.
Should you read Say To Archippus? Absolutely. Be prepared to be stirred and awakened to catch the heartbeat of Archippus Awakening that you may participate in what the Lord is doing in these final hours.
To God be the glory!
