Simple the Mission of Trinity Fellowship International and OhanaChurch.Life is to help restore the Aloha of the Church of Hawaii, est. 1823, as confirmed by the 1840 Constitution of the Kingdom of Hawaii. And to confirm the Love, Holiness and Power needed to set the captives free as per the Mission Statement of Jesus Christ.
“The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity], To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day [a]when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound]. Then He rolled up the book and gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing [attentively] at Him. And He began to speak to them: Today this Scripture has been fulfilled while you are present and hearing. (Isa.61:1-2)
That the True Church of Jesus Christ will look, smell, taste and have the power of Jesus, John 17:20-24, 1 John 5:17, 2 Tim.3:5 and this is the continual heart beat of the whole New Testament. So having a part of Jesus is better than nothing, but having all of Jesus in love, holiness and power is where the joy of the LORD is found. Our mission is to help spread the Ho’oponoopono of the LORD throughout the Kingdom of Hawai’i, God willing and the lava does not flow.
It has been said, ” it is not right for “haoles” to seek to impose our Hellenist western ideals or traditions on a sovereign indigenous people.” and this is exactly what I am concerned about. “High Church Ethos” “Low Church HRCC/CoH” have all prevented the freedom in Power of the Holy Spirit from moving in Hawai’i. There is but ONE Church of Christ Jesus as LORD with Elders sensitive and obedient to the Holy Spirit so that the Holy Spirit is the Authority of the church for Christ Jesus and not the divisions and their confusion. Elders need to be found as confirmed by the Holy Spirit that they follow God’s Truth. As Elders are found for an 1823, 1840 Church of Hawaii’, what I have to help Hawai’i will belong to them. I am 89 now and have no interest in authority. The Holy Spirit’s special mission was/is to create the Church of Christ Jesus at Pentecost that is just like Jesus and HE will depart with that Church in the Rapture when completed. Hawai’i may be a special part of that world vision if the Kingdom of Christ Jesus is restored here. The Holy Spirit was active with Henry Obookiah in writing his memoirs, which all should read. https://evols.library.manoa.hawaii.edu/bitstream/10524/579/JL38041.pdf
The Church of Christ Jesus was started in Hawai’i by the Holy Spirit in 1823 with the 1st Queen and her son and confirmed by the Kingdom of Hawai’i Constitution in 1840 and needs to simple be based upon the New Testament as per the Constitution. There are no Archbishops nor Canons needed. Just a good knowledge of the New Testament in context by the people of Hawai’i. It would be a nice flow if HRCC/CoH could flow into this concept. Both the Anglican and Congregational systems were helpful but were/are powerless as being incomplete and in fact, somewhat obstructive in their respective positions of authority, doctrine and pride. Seems to me that this Mission must begin as a new beginning in going directly to the Holy Scriptures for directions for each turn in the road. Not in contention but in a loving holy desire to hear the Holy Spirit and be directed by HIM alone into God’s Holy Truth that HE can be confirmed with “Great and Mighty signs.” John 17:20-24, Acts 2:43, Acts 6:8, Acts 8:13, 2 Corinthians 12:12
Ho’oponopono “cause things to move back in balance or to make things right.” is a much closer way to gather for a New Testament “house Church” as per scripture rather than the theater now in use in Hawaiian Churches. The Early Church would gather for evangelism on Sabbath mornings and meet in private home at sunset for a shared Agape Meal and Teaching and Prayer with signs following as the Word of God was taught and confirmed by the Holy Spirit. What we have mostly today is man’s tradition with little or no conformation of GOD’S Power.
So what are our directions in this mission?
- First always is humility and obedience out of loving faith to learn the Word of God in context and in truth.
- Second, Jesus taught a bunch of fishermen how to become messengers for HIS Kingdom for many years.
- Upon HIS resurrection Jesus wove a basket of believers in which to catch the fruit to be harvested.
- Jesus sent HIS messengers into the world to help folks lean how to become the Children of God with power.
