Thailand – means "Land of the Free"
Some may wonder, "Why pay attention to a country that has nothing to do with me?" For one, Thailand holds the record of being the number one child-sex trafficking country, meaning – more children are sold and exploited in human trafficking than any other country on the planet. Children are a heritage from the Lord (Psalm 127:3). If you want to get to my heart quickly, talk about children, Thailand and Asia. God's given me a passion for the people of these nations and especially Thailand, where I was born.
God has spoken to me in-depth of some major shifts coming to the nation of Thailand and I want to highlight a few major revelations and visions He has shown me. Thailand is on the verge of drastic change that will affect other nations for the good. The billion-dollar sex-trade industry has corrupted a nation and dishonored its people who have a God-given birthright of honor. A foundation of righteousness will come out of the ground revealing sustainable wealth for this country that's lived with corruption and oppression for too long. A culture of honor will be planted and deeply rooted in the ground where dishonor has held the Thai people captive in poverty and deception. God told me I would see the sex-trade industry in Thailand brought down in my lifetime and honor would be established throughout the land.
I see God setting up camp and planting roots in overlooked, underdeveloped, remote places in Thailand. I see a revival breaking out in North Thailand that will spread down south where the red light district of Bangkok and the city of Pattaya are located – the major cities of sex-trade and corruption. North Thailand is a rural region with tropical landscapes and higher elevations, and is populated with remote villages and people groups who haven't been influenced by big city life. God told me that North Thailand has unscathed people groups who have a purity inside of them that the enemy has not been able to touch.
Just these highlights alone may seem like a tall order and an unrealistic dream, given the nature of the current culture and climate steeped in thousands of years of Buddhism and billions of dollars of corrupt currency in the sex-trade industry. When I went to Thailand in 2008 God highlighted the Thai word "amnat" to me, which I did not know the meaning of. When I asked someone they told me amnat means "power". God then showed me that His power would hit Thailand like lightning strikes the ground with great force and great power.
One of the greatest powers that will strike Thailand is its very own children. Bill Yount writes an incredible word about the children of Thailand and what they will do. I concur with everything Bill has written here; I've seen visions of the children in Thailand move in great power as they take a stand against the enemy and say, "No more!" to being abused and violated. The children of Thailand have been crying out for help and their true Deliverer hears their cries. God is going to fill them with great power from on high and their very voices will shake the ground. Even one little cry of "help" from them will move the heart of God. As I write this I'm reminded of what Jesus speaks in Matthew 18:10: "See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in Heaven always see the face of My Father in Heaven." The children of Thailand will set a path for revival in the land and hearts will turn as in Malachi 4:5-6.
What happens with the children in Thailand will lay a foundation for children's rights in other nations to follow. Thailand will become a training nation for children to be raised up in God-given gifts and power. So yes, what happens in Thailand is very important for other nations and lands to pay attention to. In fact, I'd like to make a new declaration over Thailand's name and meaning: Thailand – Land of the Free, who frees many others.
Psalm 127:3-5, The Message:
Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
the fruit of the womb His generous legacy?
Like a warrior's fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children!
Your enemies don't stand a chance against you; you'll sweep them right off your doorstep.

A Word For Thailand That Will Impact The Nations In 2013 – "I'll Be Home With Bells On!"
Throughout Biblical and recorded history, whenever God was about to do something big in a nation to rescue His people, the enemy would target the babies from being born and attack young children from fulfilling their destiny. Somehow the enemy had an inkling that from these young ones "deliverers" of nations would come. He, the enemy, tried to thwart the delivery of deliverers – BUT GOD!
Thailand's Quiver Is Full and Shaking With Power
The word of the Lord came like a knife penetrating the belly of Hell concerning Thailand: "I'll be home with bells on!"
"With bells on" means: eager, ready to participate. Angels were placing bells into the trembling hands of children tormented by darkness. Bells started ringing; an irrevocable sound bombarding Thailand had come, shaking that nation with the vengeance of the Lord. Midwives, like angels unaware, were being called from the nations and began arriving to deliver these young children, full term, into their destinies. Bells of freedom were ringing throughout the land.
Thailand heard them and her face began to change. Mountains broke forth with singing and the trees of the field clapped their hands as a monumental treasure chest was opened revealing the riches of her inheritance in the earth. Natural, as well as spiritual riches, hidden in secret places, were unearthed. Children once in bondage rose from the gutters, singing and dancing on the heels of injustice. These children began invading whole cities. Approaching their city gates, their bold, arrow-like proclamations struck the very heart of their enemies:
"The gates of Hell shall not prevail against us. We are still here and now increasing. Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world!"
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Psalm 127:4 KJV
Blessed is the man [or nation] whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they [the children] contend with their enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:5 NIV
2013 – Here Come the Children
Their divine, innate gifting was reason enough for the devil's attack, but the greater the enemy's assault, the greater the revelation of God's glory. I sensed the Lord saying, "I will use the abused! Here come cures for certain terminal diseases. Here come world renowned-doctors, great leaders in governments, davidic musicians and worshipers, songwriters, singers with angelic bands accompanying them. Here come the children!"
The bells in Thailand were heard worldwide. The enemy's war against children had boomeranged. I sensed the Lord saying to children in the nations:
"In 2013, I am unleashing young children with the call and anointing of Daniel, Elijah, Deborah and Esther with their angels into their nations. Unusual anointings will take place also in America, especially from kindergarten age to twelve years old from the twenty young seeds that fell into the ground mercilessly in Newtown, Connecticut. A New Town shall emerge with an army of children who will be dispatched to the nations. From Sandy Hook Elementary School, I am putting a 'hook' in the jaw of this nation. And little child shall lead them."
I sense the enemy trembling with questions, "Where are these children, so young yet dangerous, coming from? Have they come to turn the world upside down? And why at this time?"
A song was being born again in the hearts of children worldwide: "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine! Won't let satan blow it out. I'm gonna let it shine. Won't let satan blow it out. I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!"
I sense strongly, "The time to favor Thailand has come." The word "Thai" means "free," and therefore "Thailand" means "Land of the Free."
Blowing the Shofar Ministries
Bill Yount has been a member of Bridge of Life in Hagerstown, Maryland, for the past 33 years where he is now an elder and a home missionary. He is currently an advisor at large for Aglow International. Bill faithfully served in prison ministry at Mount Hope for 23 years and now travels full-time, both in the U.S. and internationally, ministering in churches and Aglow circles. "Humility and Humor" characterize his ministry as he brings forth a fresh word that is "in season," proclaiming the word of the Lord! The shofar (or ram's horn) is often used in his meetings, breaking the powers of darkness over regions, churches and households. The shofar represents God's breath blowing into the nostrils of His people, reviving them and awakening the lost. Many of God's messages, which Bill ministers prophetically, come out of his everyday life with his family and friends.
