3/4/17 Lambs silent. No More!
Beloved, many of you have remained silent in the face of adversity. You have kept quiet when all you wanted to do was yell and shout at those who perpetrated the injustices on you, your families and those you love. I have watched and supported you through it all.
Remember that I too, stayed quiet in the face of injustice, knowing that by doing so I would overcome death and hell, and bring about restoration of relationship between you and My Father.
But know, that I am no longer in that place of silence, for I have overcome once and for all, and now, I am roaring over you. I am breaking you out of those places of silence and I am releasing your voice to arise and to proclaim justice for the captives, to set the oppressed free and to bring sight to the blind. Watch and see the chains fall.
Set your face as flint, for now is the time to roar!
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy that was set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
(NIV) Luke 4: 18-19
‘The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’
(NIV) Joel 3: 16
The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.
4/4/17 “YOU” are “REVIVAL”
Do you feel the earth begin to tremble? Do you hear MY ROAR begin to rise, as the silent voices are set free from the bondage of man? Do you sense the vibration in the very air you breathe, as the trumpets are being blown and the bells are ringing?
Revival begins in your heart. You are the first to be revived, stop looking to your neighbour. I have called you, my friend, to be the first. You carry MY supernatural authority as my revivalist in this nation.
Step forward with your heart of fire. Begin to release my love and hope to everyone you meet, and watch as the Holy Spirit fire that you carry, will spark the ember of their heart, and as the Holy Spirit is released to blow upon that ember, they too will explode into revival fire.
One by One, each heart will be transformed, as MY river of Fire will wash through this Nation.
(NIV) Isaiah 57: 15
For this is what the high and exalted One says—
he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place,
but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
and to revive the heart of the contrite.
(NIV) Luke 12: 12
For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”
(NIV) Acts 20: 27-28
For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.
Know that today is the day where you will feel the fire of My Holy Spirit course through your very being. He will “Jumpstart” your heart!
You have been crying out to me, saying “Lord, my heart feels dead, I no longer have the passion I once had”. Know that I have heard your prayers, and that I have already attached the cords of love and life to your heart. Even this moment sense and feel the surge of My Holy Spirit as He brings life to all that was dead and jumpstarts your heart. His fire burns away all the dross and debris that has been holding you back and holding you down. Feel the warmth of My love flow through your veins and know My comfort in the midst of your pain.
Rise up and come renewed and reinvigorated with My love and life. Let’s take time to walk and talk together, to discuss the plans I have for your future. It is not too late for I can and do redeem time.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
(NIV) Ephesians 4: 22-24
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
(NIV) Malachi 3: 3a
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver.
(NIV) Titus 2: 11-14
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
6/4/17 Kingdom Character
Many of you my family have walked through the dark night of the soul in the last few seasons. At times your heart has grown weary and troubled, the depth of pain, and being misunderstood by those you love and respect, has been a heavy burden to carry. You even thought about giving up and walking away. You may even have asked that death take you as this seemed a better road than life.
And yet here you are! Still pushing through, still standing. You, my beloved, have picked yourself up and dusted yourself down. You rise from the ashes of the fire of tribulation, renewed and restored, filled with hope and strength, because all you had left was ME.
You came and fell facedown before my throne of grace, and cried out in your despair, until there was none of you left. I reached down and took your hand and lifted you up. I placed a crown upon your head that had been cast to fit only you. I filled you with supernatural life.
The Holy Spirit lives within you, and he releases your Kingdom Character, that was born out of your journey to become my servant leaders upon this earth.
(NIV) Galatians 6: 8-10
Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
(NIV) Philippians 1: 19=21
For I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body,whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 4: 1
This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed.
7/4/17 Yesterday, Today and Forever
My Kingdom has not changed. The whim of man has no power here.
Because you hunger after the flesh and the pleasures of the same, your eyes are dimed to my light, and your sin blinds you to my truth.
There are NO grey area`s or doubts about MY Will. They are the same Yesterday, Today and Forever.
My family know my voice, they listen intently for my small still voice, and as I whisper to their hearts, they will rise up and this earth will be swamped by a wave of supernatural revival. It will be so potent you will hide in fear of meeting one of my burning ones. You will watch, as your friends and families are touched and changed.
There will be no place to hide, for my fire rises upon this earth. My revival fire will not be quenched. It is thirsty for the lives of the many. Those who come to me will be saved and restored. They will become Kingdom Citizens and will be mine forever.
(NIV) 1 John 2: 15-17
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
(NIV) Hebrews 13: 8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
(NIV) Ephesians 2: 18-20
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
(NIV) Ecclesiastes 3: 11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
10/4/17 “By My Hand”
When you, my beloved, came to me, you were broken and filled with pain. You cried out and asked me to heal your heart. I saw your tear stained face, each tear a prayer of salvation, of hope and of a better day, today.
I took your hand, my beautiful one, and I stood you up. I washed you clean from your head to the bottom of your feet and every part of your internal being is healed and set free. I placed the living flame within the depth of your heart, and Holy Spirit fills you with power and kingdom authority. You carry my divine light to shine out over the nations.
By My Hand, I placed upon your shoulders my cloak of Righteousness that you my bride will know that the higher calling upon you is attainable for you and all who move in unison with you.
I placed my cloak upon you so that you would never forget that My Hand is upon your life and that you can do all things through Me.
(NIV) Ephesians 2: 7-8
in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
(NIV) Isaiah 61: 10-11
I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.
(NLT) Philippians 4: 13
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
11/4/17 Welcome Home
My heart is so proud of you. I know it has been a real uphill struggle for you, but you have made it and you are finally home.
My eyes have been searching the horizon every moment of every day, waiting, watching and longing for your return. Hoping with every beat of My heart for your return to Me.
Know that I am not ashamed of you, you need to make no excuses or, justify why and what you have done. You are not My servant, nor will I treat you like one. You are My child, and I clothe you in finery that covers all your nakedness and dirt. I restore you to your position within My family. You are not an outcast. In fact, I am throwing the biggest party, for you have come home. As I celebrate so all of heaven celebrates. No longer will others point their fingers, for My grace completely covers you.
Know that you belong. You are accepted. You are loved. You are chosen. You are Mine!
(NIV) Luke 11: 24
Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.
“Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.
“When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ So he got up and went to his father.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
12/4/17 Nation planting
Know that I am putting this nation back on its feet. I am planting righteousness at its core. No matter the level of darkness that shows itself around you, know that I am in charge. Even as the nations rise and people plot in vain, to throw off all restraints, yet I simply laugh, for surely I have installed My Son, Jesus, as King over all the earth.
The nations will come and bow. Righteous judgements will follow. But what is that to you? It is your place to intercede and pray for those who lead your nation. Get your eyes fixed on Me, worship and adore Me and allow Me to work out My plans and purposes in your land. Hold your nation lightly for I am moulding and shaping, even in the midst of all that is happening.
Trust, believe and rely on Me. I am bringing all things to fulfilment.
(NIV) Psalm 2: 1-6
Why do the nations conspire
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”
(NIV) 2 Timothy 2: 1-6
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.
(NIV) Romans 13: 1-5
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.
13/4/17 The Language of War
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 14: 8-10
Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle? So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air. Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning.
You are called my Warrior Army, to make ready the rank and file for battle. I have set you apart to be my voice to the nations. Holy Spirit fills every part of you, he gives you the ability to speak in every language that is known to mankind. You are called to go into all the earth and preach the good news.
Be aware of what you release from your mouths, as they have also been sanctified by the washing of my blood. When you speak and release what is in your heart, you are representing me.
When you release negative words and gossip, when you speak about others you release the same curse words against yourself, and you wonder why your life is the way it is? Come quickly to repentance and turn away from speaking unintelligible words that are whipped away by the passing wind.
Focus your eyes upon me, for you are a reflection of me. Allow my words to flow freely from your heart, prepare my soldiers, for the battle is upon us.
(NIV) Proverbs 1: 22-23
“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
Repent at my rebuke!
Then I will pour out my thoughts to you,
I will make known to you my teachings.
(NIV) John 15: 7-8
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
(NIV) Isaiah 8: 9-10
Raise the war cry, you nations, and be shattered!
Listen, all you distant lands.
Prepare for battle, and be shattered!
Prepare for battle, and be shattered!
Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted;
propose your plan, but it will not stand,
for God is with us.
14/4/17 My Standard
My standard over you is love, it flies high above your life and is blown by the wind of my Spirit so that all may see, and know that you are mine.
Many have become tired at the steady onslaught of the world and its ways. They have begun to let their own standards drop, as the world around them edges its way into their lives and thoughts. The ways of dysfunction creep in like the pestilence it is. Your standard begins to lose the full power of the wind of my spirit until there is no wind at all, and your standard lies limp and lifeless.
Do you feel it? My wind of change is blowing around you. Take a look at your standard; it is ruffling in the breeze. I Am hungry for all of you, I don’t want just part of you. Come run into my arms again and allow me to embrace the whole of you. Remove the trappings of the world and run free with me, let us play together in the fields and smell the aroma of the wild flowers. Dip your feet and splash in the mountain streams as we climb higher and higher. Soar with me in the clouds as we see over the horizon together.
My beloved, raise your standard and watch as Holy Spirit fills it with the wind of power and again, all will see that you are fully mine.
(NIV) Song of Songs 2: 4
Let him lead me to the banquet hall,
and let his banner over me be love.
(NIV) Song of Songs 4:16
Awake, north wind,
and come, south wind!
Blow on my garden,
that its fragrance may spread everywhere.
Let my beloved come into his garden
and taste its choice fruits.
(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 4-10
As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”
“A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
17/4/17 The Bleating of the Lambs
I have called and released each of you my family, to be servant leaders who can guide the new lambs, through the growing pains, of kingdom life. You are aware of their constant need to be fed, and they will let you know by bleating at you day and night. Prepare yourself by being in my presence continually.
Do not let yourself grow weary, and begin to look at the hardships around your own life, for the enemy waits in hiding to pounce, and he will hungrily eat up your resolve, and he will leave behind a burned-out husk. Fix your heart and spiritual eyes upon what is ahead, especially in the midst of your trials.
Each day rise with me. Let us talk and sing together, and eat the manna of my word, as it will sustain your body, mind and spirit, and you will be healthy and whole. Watch as Holy Spirit leads you deeper and deeper into the secret places, and the mysteries are supernaturally revealed in the depth of your being.
Feed My Lambs.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4: 1-18
Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
(NIV) John 21: 14-16
This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
18/4/17 Hearts of Fire
I stood and looked up, and as I lifted my head to the sky, I watched living beating hearts begin to rise from the houses, towns and cities. Each heart had wings and was covered with flames. They flew higher and higher into the night sky. Young hearts, middle aged and old hearts met in the air and began to fly together, the old hearts took the lead and the others followed. The hearts began to come into formation, and the flaming hearts that were in the leading positions began to drop back and the young hearts began to fly free. The night sky was filled by fire and the darkness became light.
My family, your hearts burn for your nation and your home towns and cities, I call for your hearts to rise up on wings and to release your fire to bring unity to my bride, from the oldest to the youngest. I command you to teach and release my burning ones into their true calling.
I release supernatural authority for the young to lead the old, for the fire they carry will transform this nation, and bring revival to their peers. The young people will fly higher and higher, and go further and further, as they spread my fire over this earth.
Do not hinder them.
(NIV) Ephesians 5: 8-20
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(NIV) Ephesians 4: 1-7
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
19/4/17 Open the Wells of Salvation and Revival
Have I not come to you in your dreams, and revealed where the secret wells of your Nation are?
Open again the wells of Salvation and Revival, remove from them the demonic caps of hopelessness and fear. The enemy has tried to hide these wells from your Nation for too long. Rise up as one, and take back what is your birthright.
As you open the local wells, the towns and villages will taste freedom first. But, as you come together in unity, the National wells will be revealed, and your whole nation will begin to taste the waters from the wells of Salvation and Revival.
Hundreds and Thousands will come to salvation, as Revival spreads across the land, as the waters are released and sent out across the nation. Nowhere will be left arid and dry, for I will send out my workers into the harvest fields, carrying buckets filled from the wells, and they will pour them out and quench the thirst of a Nation.
(NIV) Isaiah 45: 2-3
I will go before you
and will level the mountains;
I will break down gates of bronze
and cut through bars of iron.
I will give you hidden treasures,
riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
(NIV) Isaiah 12: 2-3
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.
(NIV) Galatians 6: 9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
20/4/19 Complete Joy
I have watched my family as you have gone into the harvest fields and sowed the seeds of revival. Patiently you have tilled the land and removed all the obstacles. You have watered and weeded, and your reward was to watch the young seedlings begin to push their heads above ground level. Your Job is done.
It is now the time of the harvesters to come into my fields and harvest what was planted by the generations of the past. They will reap what was sown by the intercessors. The fields are ripe for the picking and my harvesters are strong and will work day and night until the crop comes in.
My threshers are waiting patiently to thresh what the harvest fields’ yield.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 9: 9-11
As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
(NIV) John 4: 35-37
Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true.
(NIV) Matthew 9: 37-38
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
21/4/17 Excruciating Pain
Do you think that I am unaware of the depth of pain that you carry? You hide it daily from everyone that you meet. You push it down as far as you can, so that the tears don’t flow freely. The wound that you received went into the depth of your soul, and you know that no-one understands how you feel, because they are not living in your broken heart.
I see your excruciating pain and my heart cries out to yours, allow me to touch and hold your heart in my hands. Allow me to heal your emotions and also take the dagger from your heart. Release the dam of your tears and I will collect every one, as they are your prayers of healing, and releasing forgiveness to the one, or many who wounded you.
Let me hold you close, and take as long as you need to heal, this will take time. Every day you rise meet me in the early light of dawn and lay at my feet the sacrifice of your pain and the forgiveness of others. You will have to do this continually, for the enemy will seek to remind you of how weak you are and try to keep you in Excruciating pain, but he is a liar.
Yes, you my beautiful one, will begin to heal as you and I become closer and closer. You will recognise my heartbeat in your life and my rhythms will become yours, as you lose yourself in me, and the pain will begin to diminish and then it will be gone. I will fill you completely and there will be no space for anything else, for my love for you is eternal.
(NIV) Revelation 21: 3-5
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
(NIV) Colossians 3: 12-14
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
(NIV) Matthew 11: 28-29
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
24/4/17 Come Deeper
I call to your heart, hear my whisper of love over you. Come into my embrace and allow me to take you my beloved, deeper into my all encompassing heart. Watch as everything of yesterday begins to drift away from you. Know my fragrance, breathe deeply as I invade your senses with my closeness, as you repose in my arms.
Allow me to just be with you, with no plans or purposes, no needs or wants, just you and me. I hold you in my gaze of love, I look at you and I know that I never want to let you go. There is nothing in this world that can separate me from you.
Come let us dance together in the sundrenched glades, let us jump over the wild flowers of the field, and then my bride, let us laugh together and sing the songs of love as we listen to the music of our hearts.
Come deeper and deeper, for deep cries out to deep.
(NIV) Song of Songs 2: 3-6
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest
is my beloved among the young men.
I delight to sit in his shade,
and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
Let him lead me to the banquet hall,
and let his banner over me be love.
Strengthen me with raisins,
refresh me with apples,
for I am faint with love.
His left arm is under my head,
and his right arm embraces me.
(NIV) Romans 8: 38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(NIV) Jeremiah 31: 12-13
They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;
they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord—
the grain, the new wine and the olive oil,
the young of the flocks and herds.
They will be like a well-watered garden,
and they will sorrow no more.
Then young women will dance and be glad,
young men and old as well.
I will turn their mourning into gladness;
I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
(NIV) Psalm 42: 7-8
Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.
By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
26/4/17 Direct Dial
You, my family, will never get an engaged tone when you dial up my number in prayer. I will never be too busy to answer you, for I am waiting expectantly for your call. When you speak to me in prayer, I know your voice and I am excited to hear from you.
Ask, and whatever you need, will be dispatched to you. But may I suggest that rather than go through the storm and all that pain and tears, that you would be better to contact me sooner. I have the answers to every question that you have, and I also have the wisdom for every situation that you find yourself embroiled in, whether that be friends or family.
Have you sickness? I paid the price for healing upon the cross. By My Wounds you are healed, even death has been defeated.
All you have to do is ask.
(NIV) 1Peter 3: 12a
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
(NIV) John 15: 15-17
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.
(NIV) James 1: 4-6
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
(NIV) Isaiah 53: 5
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
27/4/17 Battle Lines
The Battle plans have been drawn up and no quarter will be given. The enemy will come after you with everything in his arsenal. He will use every technique and dirty trick that he knows to bring you into confusion and doubt. He will use those who are closest to you, yes even family and friends. He needs to destroy you.
For he knows that, as a leader in My Army, you are going to defeat him in every battle and skirmish for you, my friend, have been trained to standshoulder to shoulder with every soldier in my army. When you lift your shield and all around you do the same, the enemy has no way through your defence because you become a wall of armour.
When you raise your sword, the enemy begins to flee, for you are Holy Spirit trained in supernatural combat, with power and authority over anything that the enemy tries to send against you.
So stand and when you, my friend, have done everything you can. Stand!
(NIV) Joel 2: 10-11
Before them the earth shakes,
the heavens tremble,
the sun and moon are darkened,
and the stars no longer shine.
The Lord thunders
at the head of his army;
his forces are beyond number,
and mighty is the army that obeys his command.
The day of the Lord is great;
it is dreadful.
Who can endure it?
(NIV) Ephesians 6: 10-18
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
28/4/17 The Mountain Leveller
The mountains in your life are mere mole hills to me.
When will you understand that “I AM” not restricted to your understanding and frailties? I created all things by my word. I spoke and everything trembled and shook. The seas roared into being, the land rose from beneath the oceans, the wind blows at my command. I set the stars in the sky and named every one of them. I know the number of every grain of sand upon the earth and you my friend think I am unable to sort out your problems because they are so big, like a huge mountain.
As we walk together my friend every obstacle in your path will be removed or levelled for your enemy is below your foot, it will have no power over you or your family. Learn to stamp upon the mountainous molehills and flatten them in my Name for you carry my authority.
Release your words over every situation and call in what your heart desires, then stand back and watch as that wall of distraction crumbles before you, revealing the clear path before you with no hindrances.
(NIV) Genesis 1: 1-5
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
(NIV) Mark 11: 22-24
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
(NIV) Philippians 3: 14-21
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
