1/8/17 Lets Us Talk! You and I
When things in your life become difficult and hard, the first thing that becomes distant is your relationship with me. We do not talk anymore. I AM always talking to you and I will never stop, because you are my child and I love you with a deep love that will never die.
Your enemy the devil seeks to block your conversations with me and stop our hearts connecting. For out of my heart comes the answers to every prayer you release to My Throne of Grace. Your voice begins to waver and eventually you will stop all prayer as the devil lowers his veil of deceit over your eyes. Blinded you will stumble around feeling that I do not care about you and do not hear you anymore.
The devil is a liar!
Open your mouth and call to me, and I will come running, for My Heart is tuned to yours and when I hear your voice my delight is complete. Lift your voice in song and dance with complete abandonment, take out your easel and paints, and as you put brush to canvas I will fill you with fresh vision.
(NIV) Isaiah 58: 8-10
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
(NIV) John 10: 9-11
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
(NIV) Acts 18: 9-10
One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.”
(NIV) Acts 2: 17-18
“‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
2/8/17 Death is not the End for the Living
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.
I will satisfy the priests with abundance,
and my people will be filled with my bounty,”
declares the Lord.
When a loved one comes home to glory, those who are left behind go into the time of mourning. They weep over the loss of their loved one and great sadness fills their heart. This mourning must come to an end, as the days grow longer and the sun fills the sky with heat and light. Allow the summer to bring refreshing to your weary bones and as I have collected every tear, watch, as I begin to renew your vim and vigour.
Your loss has been hard. The one who died was the other half of your heart and that person was the one you walked through life with. But I have called you as an individual and my calling over your life did not end there. You carry the beat of my heart within you and as I release fresh joy and comfort through the Holy Spirit, I whisper to you rise and step forth for your mourning has finished and My New Day is upon you.
Stretch your arms and draw in a fresh breath, fill your lungs and begin to sing a new song. Those who have gone before you will always be in your heart as they are now in mine.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15: 50-58
I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
(NIV) 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-17
According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
I watched as a tornado of fire was released, it brought a sense of fear and imminent doom. As I watched the people of God were being caught up into it, completely unharmed. I saw a purification come over each of them, they were shining bright. Up and up they went, to the very top of the funnel. As each of them crested the top, I watched as they descended on surfboards right down into the very core of the tornado. There was such a sense of joy and abandonment on their faces. Down and down they went. As they reached the very bottom, I saw each one plunge into a deep, deep pool of water. Each began to swim to the surface, climb out and then I watched as they all started off in different directions, changed, renewed, revitalised and ready to follow wherever the Spirit led them.
Beloved, everything is shaking and changing around you, but know that I am in the midst and I am purifying My Bride, My beautiful Bride. I am changing you from likeness to likeness, to reflect more of Me. Come with abandonment and allow the process to mature you. I will have a Bride who is pure, strong, resolute and who will do exploits in My name. My Bride will be led by My Spirit, no hesitation in her heart or mind. She will shout aloud My gospel and will not turn back.
(NIV) Malachi 3: 1-4
“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty.
But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord, as in days gone by, as in former years.
(NIV) John 12: 12-14
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
(NIV) Revelation 19: 7-8
Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.’
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
My people I have much to say to you on the subject of maturity. I want you all to grow and to mature, so that you will no longer be those who are tossed around by every whim of doctrine.
I have set My Holy Spirit in you to guide you into all truth, yet you ignore His nudges and what He is saying because it does not tickle your ears. He will challenge you with My word, but always to produce a yield of righteousness. I discipline those I love and remind them of who they are in Me. I call them up to the Higher places. You are Mine, My Sons and Daughters, whom I love. I will have a mature people, those who walk in righteousness before Me.
I call you all to maturity, read and learn My Word, listen to My Holy Spirit so that you may train yourselves to know good from evil. Be mature in your understanding of Me. My people will be Holy even as I am Holy.
(NIV) Hebrews 5: 11-14
We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
(NIV) James 2: 2-4
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
(NIV) Ephesians 4: 11-13
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 7-11
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined – and everyone undergoes discipline – then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
7/8/17 Direct download
Why do you run here and there seeking My wisdom and revelation from different men and women? Yes they carry it, but where do you think they got it from? It came from Me. I want to be the first place where you come for direct download. I hold all knowledge, wisdom and revelation and I long to impart it to you, My people.
I understand you better than you understand yourself. I long to release the wisdom that you need in the difficult situations and broken relationships that you find yourself in.
That wisdom is only a start, for surely, “no eye has seen, nor ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.” I have set My seal on your heart and I am jealous for you.
Let your eyes and ears be attentive to Me.
(NKJV) 1 Corinthians 2: 9-10
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
(NIV) James 1: 5
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
(NIV) Luke 11: 31
The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon is here.
(NIV) Galatians 1: 12
For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
8/8/17 Blank page
I watched as a book was opened up and the blank page it opened at, was pure liquid gold. I saw the Father take the most exquisite and expensive feather quill and begin to write upon the page. I watched as He wrote the most incredible things about you on the page. As He wrote the page became solid and the words were sealed for all eternity.
Beloved, know that He has sealed your future into place and nothing can change what He has already decreed and declared over you. You are loved, accepted and forgiven. Nothing and no one can separate you from My love.
See He has written His vision over your life!
(NIV) Psalm 139: 16-18
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
(NIV) Habbakuk 2: 3-4
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
(NIV) Ephesians 1: 13-14
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
9/8/17 POSITION or position?
Many of you are seeking for position within My body. Know that I have already positioned those who have hearts after Me, those who are willing to take the lowly servant positions. These are men and women who serve others without needing POSITION. They give of themselves to Me and are obedient to My voice. They don’t have titles, they have laid down their lives as a sacrifice for Me. Oftentimes even giving their physical lives over to death that I might be glorified. Out of the places where these have given their lives, much fruit has grown.
Why then do you worry and take on titles? Does it puff up or build up? Titles do not make you any more or any less. Do what I have called you to do. Do not seek after the glory of men, but after My glory and I will raise you up in due course.
(MSG) John 5: 41-44
“I’m not interested in crowd approval. And do you know why? Because I know you and your crowds. I know that love, especially God’s love, is not on your working agenda. I came with the authority of my Father, and you either dismiss me or avoid me. If another came, acting self-important, you would welcome him with open arms. How do you expect to get anywhere with God when you spend all your time jockeying for position with each other, ranking your rivals and ignoring God?
(NIV) John 12: 24-26
Very truly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honour the one who serves me.
(NIV) John 13: 12-17
When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. ‘Do you understand what I have done for you?’ he asked them. ‘You call me “Teacher” and “Lord”, and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
Beloved do not hesitate to follow Me. I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and to give you hope and a future. Do not waiver in your desire to follow Me.
I know the season has been difficult and many times, just like Elijah, you have reached the end of yourself and have asked for Me to take you home. That is not My will for your life. In fact, I have a bright future for you. I see beyond where you are at just now and I say to you, “Hold on a little longer and you will see the fulfilment of My plan over your life”. My promises still stand. Allow hope to rise in your heart.
I speak to the fear and intimidation that has held you and I command them to cease and desist over your life today. I did not give you a spirit of fear or timidity, but one of power, love and a sound mind. Be strong and courageous and arise with faith and trust in Me and My plans for you.
(NIV) Jeremiah 29: 11-14
For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and will bring you back from captivity.
(NIV) 2 Timothy 1: 6-7
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
(AMPC) Mark 4: 40
He said to them, Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust)?
(AMPC) 1 John 3: 23
And this is His order (His command, His injunction): that we should believe in (put our faith and trust in and adhere to and rely on) the name of His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and that we should love one another, just as He has commanded us.
11/8/17 My Glory, My presence
Come and saturate yourself in My presence. Let Me fill to overflowing, every part of your heart, your mind and your will. I am so delighted when you come. I watch and enjoy you with sheer pleasure, as you enter My presence and sit with Me, sometimes in quietness, at times as we talk together. But those moments when you worship in absolute abandonment, not withholding anything from Me. These are the moments I treasure the most. In those moments, I encompass you with My glory. My heart overflows with such elation, knowing that it is only You and I in that place of intimacy. In that place, I can withhold nothing from you. You can ask and I will give, seek and you will find and knock and I will open. My heart is fully captivated by you.
Abandon yourself in My presence and let Me encompass you with My glory.
(NIV) 2 Chronicles 5: 13-14
….indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying:
“For He is good,
For His mercy endures forever,”
that the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.
(NIV) Revelation 4: 9-11
Whenever the living creatures give glory and honour and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
“You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honour and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.”
The spirit of desolation is having a free range all over your nation. It seeks to devour the hearts and minds of my people with fear and desolation. You hear of wars and rumours of war and yet you do not look to my throne for your answers. The enemy is upon the streets of your cities and towns, he tries to hoodwink you into believing that he can do as he please but his time is in my hands and his end is already written.
You, my family, carry such authority. As you release your prayers, the very earth that you walk upon, will feel the rumbling as the earth trembles with anticipation, of the answered prayers of my faithful ones.
Speak out with fervent words, be jubilant as the battle has already been won and you, my beloved, carry every victory for every street, town, city and nation with each word you release to my throne of grace.
My burning ones are releasing Holy Spirit fire upon every spiritual stronghold and they will be demolished into dust and you will walk upon the paths that are even and straight.
(NIV) Matthew 24: 5-7
For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
(NIV) Mark 13: 12-23
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
“When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down or enter the house to take anything out. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that this will not take place in winter, because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now—and never to be equaled again.
“If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
(NIV) James 5: 16-17
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
15/8/17 Prophetic Espionage
My family, be aware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing, yes they are in the midst of you and even look like you, talk like you, worship beside you and charm you with the warm words that ooze with dripping honey to gain entry to your deepest thoughts. They will seek to become your closest ally while manoeuvring around all your friends and church family, they will become closer to you and then they will begin to take your attention away from Me and My Throne of Grace.
There is an insatiable hunger within them to become your saviour and only through them will you be able to be healed and set free. Their heart is to take over your life and to come into a leadership position within your church. Yes, this is Powers and Principalities in which the person has whole heartedly partnered with.
This is a Jezebel Spirit in action it seeks your demise and the destruction of the church, brick by living brick.
Take everything that you hear prophetically spoken over your life back to the Living Word and weigh it up and seek other confirmations. Come to me in prayer for all that I desire for you is uplifting and filled with Joy. I seek the treasure within you and I will use that treasure in the fields that are golden.
(NIV) Matthew 7: 15-20
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
(NIV) 1 Kings 18: 3-4
and Ahab had summoned Obadiah, his palace administrator. (Obadiah was a devout believer in the Lord. While Jezebel was killing off the Lord’s prophets, Obadiah had taken a hundred prophets and hidden them in two caves, fifty in each, and had supplied them with food and water.)
(NIV) Ephesians 6: 12
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.
(NIV) Matthew 13: 51-53
“Have you understood all these things?” Jesus asked.
“Yes,” they replied.
He said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”
16/8/17 Fresh Letters of Revival
My beloved, there has been an uncovering of old wounds, many scars of the past have been coming to the surface and bringing fresh pain to these areas of contention. These are being revisited as full healing was not completed as many of these painful times in your lives were merely buried and glossed over. We are moving into a season, where complete healing is required to fulfil, the next step on your journey.
I release upon you and through you, the healing Fire of The Holy Spirit, as he washes through every part of you, from the top of your head to the base of your feet. All these old wounds and scars, even the ones deep within your heart are being burned away, leaving refreshing and perfectly healed bodies, minds and spirit.
There is a place of family healing, where the wounds of yesteryear are being smoothed away, even the place where people who have not spoken for many years. I am removing the curse of silence from you and your family.
Today is the day to make that phone call or write the letter that you have desired to do for such a long time.
(NIV) Isaiah 58: 7-9a
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
(NIV) Hebrews 10: 21-23
And since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
(NIV) John 8 34-38
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
17/8/17 Full On!
I watched as a thick rope was on fire and I heard the strands breaking one at a time as they burned through. There was an expectation that the weight at the other end of the rope would soon fall. Fear was wrapped around the anticipated outcome. Suddenly the rope broke and the weight at the other end fell.
I heard the words, “Finally, now I have you where I want you. I can lead you now that you are free. Free from the bondages that have held you tied to all your places of comfort. Be still and know that I am God.”
Beloved, you have clung so tightly to the things that you have known. I have made you to fly free, to enjoy, to explore, to be those with adventurous hearts and minds. You were created to push boundaries, to become world changers and atmosphere changers. You were never designed to accept the status quo. Turn your eyes forward and face the future full on!
(NIV) Romans 8: 14-16
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
(NIV) Philippians 3: 12-14
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
(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.
18/8/17 Strong Foundations
The time of building has come. Do not throw away the old in your desperation to build the new, but incorporate it into this new season. Take the stones of the past and let them become the foundations for the new. Look at how they were fashioned and formed and learn from both the good and the bad. Let the mistakes of yesterday, be your jump start to your freedom today, and the good, let it lead you to better.
The mortar between the old and the new needs to be replaced, so that there will be no more cracked or broken foundations and the separations between the two, will no longer exist. Without the old you would not be all you are today, so look again and make sure your foundations are strong.
(NIV) Joshua 4: 4-7
So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the Israelites, one from each tribe, and said to them, “Go over before the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.”
(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 4-6
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.”
(NIV) Song of Songs 7: 12-13
Let us go early to the vineyards
to see if the vines have budded,
if their blossoms have opened,
and if the pomegranates are in bloom—
there I will give you my love.
The mandrakes send out their fragrance,
and at our door is every delicacy,
both new and old,
that I have stored up for you, my beloved.
21/8/17 Your Crown
The crown upon your head was placed there by my hands, a Spiritual crown that carries the nobility of royalty.
My family, your crown is the visible display of my trust in you. Everything in my kingdom is yours. You have been positioned where you are, in the areas of influence that surround your life, to be my witnesses to all whom you meet.
Wear your crown with dignity and honour, for many will seek your council, as you will have supernatural wisdom as Holy Spirit reveals it to you in all situations within your own family and the community. You will bring fresh revelation to my church
Your crown is not heavy upon your head for it was created especially for you. It was designed from the beginning of all time to sit perfectly.
Trust in the words that I have spoken through you and over your own life. I do not speak idly, the prophetic words that I have released to you are coming into their season, and it is now time to sit upon the throne of your life, with boldness and Kingdom courage.
(NIV) Hebrews 2: 6-8
But there is a place where someone has testified:
“What is mankind that you are mindful of them,
a son of man that you care for him?
You made them a little lower than the angels;
you crowned them with glory and honour
and put everything under their feet.”
In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.
(NIV) James 3: 17-18
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
(NIV) Acts 28: 31
He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!
(NIV) Daniel 2: 20-22
“Praise be to the name of God forever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.
I looked and beheld a wall of shelves and upon those shelves were the most exquisite and beautifully designed perfume bottles, no two were alike. They had been skilfully and wonderfully created by the hand of the Master Craftsman.
The amount in each one was different, some were full, others half full and still others had just a little perfume in the bottom. I watched as a bottle was removed from the shelf that had just a small amount of perfume in it. Then I saw Jesus take an eyedropper and I watched as He collected a tear as it ran down His own cheek. He then added His tear to the perfume that was already there and swirled the two together. He resealed the bottle and placed it on the shelf with such a loving tender look.
Then I heard Him say, “These are the tears of My people, of all those who have wept before Me out of hurt, pain, loss and love. What wounds you, wounds Me. I understand your heart and what breaks it. I also know how to bring healing and restoration. When you cry, I cry with you and My tears mingle with yours to create a sweet perfume to present before our Father. I am always making intercession for you. You are Mine”.
(NLT) Psalm 56: 8
You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.
(NIV) Hebrews 7: 25
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
(NIV) Isaiah 53: 3-5
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
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.
23/8/17 Rejection and YOU!
Rejection can be as terrifying as death and has the ability to destroy even the most confident person. Rejection tears at your heart and rips away the people who love you because the spirit of rejection is a liar. It will envelop every thought you have, until you believe, that no one can or could ever love you, especially ME.
The greatest enemy in your life, my friend, is You, especially when you partner with this demonic manifestation of rejection. This liar will spread gossip through your own mind, and you will eventually come into agreement with its whispers of hate for yourself, and you will live in the truth of the lie, broken and unlovable.
Today is a New Day! It is time to tell the Spirit of Rejection that you will not listen to its lies anymore. I AM releasing to you the complete authority to tell this demonic liar to sling his hook. Your house is being swept clean, and there is no place within you for any visitors that would not be welcomed in MY Kingdom.
Take in a deep breath of fresh cleansing air. Taste your freedom, as the chains fall off and clatter to the ground. Live again, and sense the wind beneath your wings, as you begin to lift from the ground and rise in the thermals of my Spirit. Higher and higher you will climb until the revelation of all my plans and purposes are spread out before you.
(NIV) Romans 11: 1-6
I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me” ? And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
(NIV) Mark 5: 1-20
They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”
Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.
Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened. When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid. Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man—and told about the pigs as well. Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.
(NIV) Isaiah 40: 30-31
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
24/8/17 One moment
One moment in time is all that is required to change your circumstances. It is My delight to bring about sudden changes to your situation, especially when the circumstances seem to be at their darkest. Even when there is but one little seed of faith, it is enough to allow Me to work on your behalf.
Lift your voice and heart to me in worship and watch as I take just one moment, to change everything. To bring light to dark, sorrow to joy, death to life, ashes to beauty, defeat to victory.
Look and see what is already recorded in My word. Did I not bring life where there was death, health where there was sickness, deliverance when there was oppression? Beloved it is part of My character, I cannot be separated from it, I move with compassion. Do you think that I will not move on your behalf? Do not fear, for I am there in that one moment with you and for you.
(NIV) Matthew 11:26
Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’
(NIV) Matthew 8:13
Then Jesus said to the centurion, ‘Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.’ And his servant was healed at that moment.
(NIV) Matthew 9:22
Jesus turned and saw her. ‘Take heart, daughter,’ he said, ‘your faith has healed you.’ And the woman was healed at that moment.
(NIV) Matthew 15:28
Then Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.’ And her daughter was healed at that moment.
My beloved, I count you trustworthy for the service I have called you to. Do not believe the lies of the enemy or even the words that issue forth from those you trust. I called you and appointed you, not man. I chose you, you did not choose Me. I have put no barriers before you, they are not of My making, and I will tear down what is not of Me. I open the doors I want to open and no man will shut them. Trust My will for your life.
Stand steadfast and sure for I will complete the good work that I started in and through you. I know you better than you know yourself and I know that you will persevere for I have set My seal upon you. I have developed your character even through the trials and testings so that what is in you will bring honour and glory.
(AMPC) 1 Timothy 1:12
I give thanks to Him Who has granted me [the needed] strength and made me able [for this], Christ Jesus our Lord, because He has judged and counted me faithful and trustworthy, appointing me to [this stewardship of] the ministry.
(AMPC) Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you….
(AMPC) John 15:16
You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I Am], He may give it to you.
(NIV) 1 Peter 1:6-7
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed.
28/8/17 Slain Servant Hearts
(NIV) Revelation 6: 9-17
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.
I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”
My family, all of your names have been written in the book of life, and each of you, will receive a white stone with a new name upon it.
You have faced the enemy in full armour and waged a supernatural battlefront. Each of you have stood shoulder to shoulder against the hordes of demonic attack on a daily basis. You have stood strong, a mighty kingdom army who know that each battle has already been won, paid for upon the cross and by the covering of my blood and resurrection.
The peoples of this world who blindly seek their own pleasure in the flesh, and demonic interaction through speaking to the dead, will find demons ruling their lives.
The day of shaking is coming and there will be no place to hide, for I come for my family and they will come home with me and we will be together for eternity.
While there is still time, seek me, salvation only comes through me, and I am, waiting for you to call my name.
(NIV) Revelations 3: 4-6
Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
(NIV) Acts 4: 11-12
“‘the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
29/8/17 Daughters Arising
I have been preparing many of you, My daughters, in My secret place and training you to be obedient to My voice and to the leading of My Holy Spirit. I am bringing a release and unveiling to those of you who have been trained in those places.
No more will you be hidden from view or overlooked. You will arise as My Deborahs, Esthers, and Ruths taking your rightful place shoulder to shoulder with My sons. You will bring revelation and wisdom into difficult situations with humility. You will operate out of your position of royalty, with dignity and certainty, of who you are in Me. You are arising into your rightful positions within My Body, but also within the economic and political realms. You will not push your way in, but will carry such mantles of wisdom and leadership skills that others will automatically look to you and make way for you. Remember to keep your focus fully on Me.
(NIV) Judges 4:4-5
Now Deborah, a prophet, the wife of Lappidoth, was leading Israel at that time. She held court under the Palm of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went up to her to have their disputes decided.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 6:18
‘I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.’
(NIV) Hebrews 2:10-11
In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters
I watched as The Artist began to put the mosaic of your life together. His plan was laid out and He began to shape each piece to fit in perfectly, each colour was readied to go into its’ proper place.
I then watched as He laid all the pieces out, making sure that each coloured tile was in the correct place, all the time His eye was on the plan that He had lovingly made. After each piece was laid out, He climbed to a vantage point where He could see the whole mosaic and He carefully scanned the entire layout. He came back down and readjusted a few pieces and again took up the vantage point. He kept doing this until He was totally satisfied with how it looked. Then He came and started to lay the cement that all the parts would be set into. He worked tirelessly, making sure everything was precise. He kept checking all the time to make certain that each little detail was correct. He laboured in love with such attention to detail.
Father God is the one who knows the ultimate plan for your life. He takes care of every little detail. Nothing escapes His eye. His plans are good and He is faithful to finish the work in your life, to bring you to full maturity in His Son. Give Him permission and surrender your life into His loving hands. For you are beautifully crafted and created.
(NIV) Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
(NIV) Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
(NIV) Jude 24
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy
(NIV) Matthew 10:29-31
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
31/8/17 Confounding the wise
My Kingdom is not of this world. I do not judge with human eyes, nor do I judge with human wisdom. My wisdom is far beyond yours and My thinking so different from yours. I am not limited in My ways and My ways are just.
I take all who seem foolish to the world, who are unlearned, who are weak and I place My Spirit in them and fill them with My wisdom. Just as in the past, when men asked about My disciples, they became astonished and realised that they had been with Me. So others will realise that you are Mine and that your wisdom comes from Me. I so love to confound the wise and use the weak and lowly to show forth My glory and radiance. Trust Me.
(NIV) Acts 4:13
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realised that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 1:18-31
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate. ’Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling-block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things – and the things that are not – to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God – that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.’
