First Peoples

Saskatchewan is a province that is both rich in it’s natural resources and it’s people. One of these people groups is the aboriginal population which add to the unique diversity in this province. This diversity is to be celebrated for the contribution that it brings to the whole, without which Saskatchewan would be lacking. Due to the oppressive problems that have plagued the aboriginal community, this has presented many challenges. Regardless, God has revealed the plans of His heart for the First Peoples both in the nation and this province through numerous prophecies over the years. For those who believe the promises of God, we can boldly declare, “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”.
Our vision is to see all peoples in this province healed and set free and walking together, shoulder to shoulder – all cultures, peoples and languages, (actually not even aware of our differences), to see the Kingdom of God released . To focus on the problems, except to gain understanding, would be non productive. With a heart of understanding and co-operation, we can learn from the mistakes of the past and move toward building a brighter future for the generations to come. First Peoples are not lesser than or weaker than other people groups. In fact, they hold a very important key for Christ’s church to take her place to see the destruction of the enemy’s strongholds and the advancement of the Kingdom of God. That key, we believe, is innocence restored in Jesus Christ – the freedom to walk with and hear the Father’s voice as the original First People, Adam and Eve in the Garden, which enables the power of God to be released without hindrance.
In the midst of death and destruction which has spawned great hopelessness, there is a sense that winds of change are beginning to blow. Hope is rising! With renewed faith, an army of God’s children are emerging with a desire to pray for the First Peoples. These prayers are not going unnoticed. Breakthrough into freedom and deliverance from bondage is on the horizon. This is not the time to despair at the immensity of the problem. Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…. It is time to remain steadfast as victory is near; the time when God will say, “Enough!” and go to war against His enemies.

And they shall say, This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are fortified and inhabited. Then the nations that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord have rebuilt the ruined places and replanted that which was desolate. I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it. Ezekiel 36:35,36 (also Jer. 32:36-42).
