5/12/18 

There are old doors that are to be revisited and walked through with Kingdom boldness. What stopped you in the past will not stop you today. Revisit your past Prophetic Words, lift them down from those dusty shelves and pray over them. “YOU” are Free and filled with Holy Spirit Fire. 

 

10/12/18 Watchmen on the Rampart of Faith 

I am calling you to arise to your positions on the walls of this land. Take your place among the many that I am raising up at this time. These are the ones who will hear and obey, who will elevate My voice in this land. There is no age limit, the young and the old are coming to stand together. 

Yes, the times are tumultuous and many things are trying to shape and change you to look like them. There are many voices calling you to conform, and just accept the status quo. Many are saying be quiet, be passive, don’t make a fuss, but that is not My voice. 

I am shouting and crying out all the more, “prepare the way of the Lord”. Go out into the highways and byways and lift your voices. Stand against the corruption, stand against the enemies’ tactics wherever you find them. 

Intercessors and watchmen arise! 

(NIV) Jeremiah 51: 27a 

Lift up a banner in the land!
Blow the trumpet among the nations!
Prepare the nations for battle…….. 

(NIV) Hebrews 12: 25-28 

See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. 

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” 

(NIV) Isaiah 62: 6-7 

I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem;
they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord,
give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth. 

 

11/12/18 “Roaring Fire” 

See, I am coming as a “Roaring Fire” to sweep away all that is dross. It will purify those whose hearts are set on Me. Those things that have been hindering your walk with Me, will be swept away by the love of My fire. 

I am bringing a time of cleansing and change to My body. There will be a great shaking within the establishment, not only physically but also spiritually. Many will rise with fresh voices declaring, “This is the way of the Lord”. Even as in the days of John the Baptist men will congregate to hear the words spoken, many will laugh, heckle, and try to silence those speaking. However, for every voice taken another ten will arise to take their place. They will only get louder and more persistent, declaring My love and justice in a desolate land. 

Ready yourself for “My Roaring Fire”! 

(NIV) 1 Peter 1: 6-9 

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. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 

(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) Acts 2:1-4 

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. 

 

12/12/18 The Teddy Bears Mantle 

Do you hear my gentle voice within your spiritual ear? 

Listen intently my family, for I am calling to you in the night hours, to rise up and take hold of the mantle that I have laid across your shoulders. You have been taught and trained to carry this weighty mission, and I release you now, to fulfil My Will. 

The children are crying out for Servant leaders, to teach them how to interact with Holy Spirit and to know My undiluted Living Word. Each little one is as different as the grains of sand on the beach but they enjoy being together. 

Teach them to Worship like David did, with full abandonment and give them encouragement to speak, to preach, to shout, to dance and even to cry, from the youngest to the oldest. 

My Church, will be a place that even the quietest voice will be like the roaring thunder and all will take notice, for out of the mouths of children and infants, I will call forth My Praise. 

(NIV) Psalm 40: 5-7 

Many, Lord my God,
are the wonders you have done,
the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you;
were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
they would be too many to declare.
Sacrifice and offering you did not desire—
but my ears you have opened—
burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.
Then I said, “Here I am, I have come—
it is written about me in the scroll. 

(NIV) Mark 10: 13-14 

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 

(NIV) Matthew 21: 15-16 

But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple courts, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant. 

“Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. 

“Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, 

“‘From the lips of children and infants
you, Lord, have called forth your praise?” 

 

13/12/18 Merciful 

I am the Lord of mercy. Do I not hear and respond when you cry out for mercy? 

Just look at Bartimaeus, a man who had known nothing but rejection from birth because of his blindness, attributed to family sin, according to society. Even when he realised I was near and called out, others tried to silence Him. However, he shouted even louder until he had My full attention. Once He had My attention, he threw off his old cloak which marked him as a beggar and came to Me asking for his sight. I extended mercy to him and healed his sight. 

Surely, I will not do less for you. I am the God of mercy and love, and I will not pass you by. I hear your cry and know what your heart is longing for. Open your mouth and shout, be persistent in your asking. 

(NIV) Mark 10: 46-52 

Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.”Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. 

(NIV) Luke 18: 1-8 

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ 

“For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’” 

And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” 

(NIV) James 1: 5 

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. 

 

14/12/18 Permissible not Beneficial 

Beloved, everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial. There are consequences for choosing your own will, rather than Mine. Certainly, you are free to do as you wish, for I gave you freewill and I will never take that away from you. However, there are choices that lead to life and others that lead to death, so I encourage you to choose what is right. 

Do not make light of the sacrifice that My Son paid for you. I am the God of love and can be nothing else. Nevertheless, I would be a very poor Father if I did not discipline you as My child. My desire for us is to grow deeper in intimacy and understanding. Are you willing to lay down your life and say with Paul, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me?” Let others see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

(NIV) 1 Corinthians 10: 23-24 

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. 

(NIV) Hebrews 12: 4-13 

In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, 

“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
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. 

Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. 

(NIV) Galatians 2: 19-21 

“For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” 

(NIV) Matthew 5: 16 

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

 

17/12/18 Scabby Knees 

My family, when you pick up your cross and follow Me, your path before you has been planned and made straight since the beginning of all time. 

I know at times you can be filled with fear as the world around you tries to bring you into conformity of its lusts and desires, but you are made stronger by relationship and intimacy with Holy Spirit. As you reach out in Prayer and Intercession, the powers and principalities shudder and shake for they have no authority here. Your voice is like the thunder as it rolls across the heavens, for the prayers of one of My righteous Ones avails much. 

You will know hardship and you will not be liked by the world, and in some cases even by the church, but I will know you, for your carry My Heart and the Truth of Salvation that can only be found through Me. 

(NIV) 1 Samuel 2: 9-10 

He will guard the feet of his faithful servants,
but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness.
“It is not by strength that one prevails;
those who oppose the Lord will be broken.
The Most High will thunder from heaven;
the Lord will judge the ends of the earth.
“He will give strength to his king
and exalt the horn of his anointed.” 

(NIV) Ephesians 6: 10-20 

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. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. 

(NIV) Luke 9: 23-26 

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. 

(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. 

 

18/12/18 Light and momentary troubles 

I see and understand the difficulties that you walk through. I am with you in those moments. Remember that I have never left you nor forsaken you. I weep with those who weep and I mourn with those who mourn. Also remember that I also rejoice with those who rejoice. Each of you are on your own journey and so do not despise another’s journey. 

There will always be difficulties and challenges but remember that My Son, for the joy set before Him endured the cross and scorned its shame so that many sons would be brought to glory. 

Re-examine your past, look and see the incredible ways that I have brought you through. Begin to be thankful for what I have done and realise that if I did it then, I can do it again and again! My arm is not too short, nor My ear to dull to hear your cry and deliver. These are but light and momentary troubles. 

Lift your head and fix your gaze on eternity! 

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4: 7-10 

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. 

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4: 16-17 

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) Romans 12: 15-16 

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 

 

19/12/18 You, (YES YOU!) are anointed 

You have forgotten that you are My anointed. As I am in you, so you are in Me. You cannot separate us. You did not choose Me, I chose you to go and bear fruit, fruit that would last. My delight to glorify My Father, is your delight. The love in My heart, is reflected in yours. We are one, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as you are one with us. The calling upon My life, is the calling upon your life. I came to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour. 

I chose you, appointed and anointed you in Me, even before the foundation of the world. Therefore, 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 you from the love of God in Me. 

So look up and remember who you are. You are My Anointed One. 

(NIV) Isaiah 61: 1-2 

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour 

(NIV) Romans 8: 14-17 

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. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 

(NIV) Romans 8: 28-39 

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. 

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: 

“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 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. 

 

20/12/18 Surprise, Surprise! 

Everything appears the same, the world keeps on turning and all your tomorrows look like they are going to be identical. One day flits into another. You look back wondering where have all the dreams gone, all the desires you once had. How did my life take these turns? You try to work it out. 

Surprise, surprise! 

At the most inopportune time, I AM is invading your life! Not when you expect or when you feel its time. Watch as the excuses come, “Wait until I’m married, divorced, retired, have a house, a car or the children are older.” When you said “yes” to Me, I took you at your word. When you said “I’ll serve you forever”, I heard. 

I watched as you tried to serve Me, to do what I asked, then you got side-tracked, things went awry. But, I would say to you today that I have not forgotten the plans and purposes that I have over your life. I interrupted Moses’ life when he was eighty and he thought everything was over. Look at Elisha, when I sent Elijah, he burned his oxen and left his old life to follow. What about Matthew, the tax collector, Peter, James and John, they were fishermen, Saul who became Paul? Zacchaeus hiding in the tree? Too many to name. 

So surprise, surprise! 

Are you ready to journey afresh with Me? 

(NIV) Jeremiah 29: 11-14a 

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) Exodus 3: 1-4 

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.” 

When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” 

And Moses said, “Here I am.” 

(NIV) Acts 9: 1-3 

Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 

 

21/12/18 Belt of Truth 

My family, there is a demonic storm about to be released upon the world. My Sons and Daughters will become the field hospitals and surgeons, for the wounded and even the dead. 

That which has been done in secret vaults and surrounded in deep darkness, will be brought to the surface and will flow freely down our streets, villages, towns and cities. The Ocultic will abound more and more and we will see it becoming increasingly acceptable in the market place. 

Radio, Television Programs and especially Films, will be bombarded with continuous and unacceptable levels of sinful practices that will devour your ability to stand, as righteous Men and woman of God. 

This storm seeks to blow away from you, your Moral values and diminish them, so that you will accept that which was once unacceptable to you. 

I remind you my family, that as you put on the full armour and stand for the morality of My Kingdom Principals, that No Storm can stand against you. Raise your voice in the corridors of government and release through My Name, the full Authority that you carry. 

I hear the echo of the words “YOU” spoke to “ME”. “AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE LORD”. 

I ACCEPT! 

(NIV) Luke 10: 19-20 

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” 

(NIV) Joshua 24: 14-16 

“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” 

Then the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods! 

(NIV) Ephesians 6: 11-17 

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. 

 

24/12/18 Let “ME” Shine through “YOU” 

A man and a woman stood face to face with one another. They held each other and gazed into each other’s eyes. At the back of them stood a line of people, they stood to the right of the woman and the man. 

They began to move forward, as they passed behind the couple they would reach out their hands and touch them. Many stopped and prayed for either the man or the woman, others just squeezed a shoulder. As the stream of people continued to move by them, open wounds began to appear on their bodies. Blood began to drip from the wounds that had been left by some of those who had touched these lives. As more and more wounds were being revealed deep pain and anger, hurt and loss, fear and punishment were brought to the surface. 

I will not leave them in this state. I will put “My” loving arms around them and hold them tight. As I hold them and draw them close to my heart the wounds will change as “my” light of Love will shine all around them and will pour out of their wounds. 

Their wounds will be closed and they will be completely healed. 

MY BELOVED, when you are wounded, let “ME” be poured out and allow “ME” to Shine through “YOU”. 

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4: 6-7 

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. 

(NIV) Isaiah 53: 4-5 

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. 

(NIV) John 8: 12 

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 

 

27/12/18 Restoring the Foundations of Family 

I call you my family, to reach across the chasm of the past and to carry the stones of restoration, there has to come a place where those in conflict come to the bridges that have been destroyed and left to rack and ruin by the hands of man. 

I release to you my beloved the answer to those past places of separation and I declare over you justice, restoration and restitution. 

The bridges need two sides to meet in the middle and place before them the stone that was rejected, for I will bring together that which was broken and again open the bridges of peace between all of our family. 

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 13: 11-12 

Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 

Greet one another with a holy kiss. 

(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 1-6 

Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. 

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) Acts 15: 16-17 

“‘After this I will return
and rebuild David’s fallen tent.
Its ruins I will rebuild,
and I will restore it,
that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord,
even all the Gentiles who bear my name,
says the Lord, who does these things’ 

 

28/12/18 What`s in a Name 

The blind eyes see. The deaf hear, the lost are found, the hungry are fed, the poor are made rich, the lame walk, the sick are healed, the dead are raised to life, the future is secured, the kingdom reigns. 

What`s in a name. 

“EVERYTHING” 

“JESUS” 

(NIV) Ephesians 1: 20-22 

He exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church. 

 

31/12/18 Open Book 

Before you is an open book, containing many pages, made of pure liquid gold. 

As you look at it, you ask, “What shall I write?” 

“Anything you like”, He replied. 

“Anything, are you sure?” 

“Yes, why do you hesitate? Within you is the power to dream, to declare, to call into being, both good and bad”, He replied. 

“Ah, now there’s the challenge. I want to call into being what is your will, what is good and upright and not the selfish desires in me.” 

“Then you need to come and sit with Me, stop rushing after other things, I have so much to reveal to you. Are you willing?” He replied. 

“Yes”, I replied. 

From the depth of my heart, I felt the desire to draw close, to hide myself away with Him and Him alone. When I emerged, my mind was filled with wonder at the greatness of Him. The fullness of understanding filled my mind. I understood what was important and why! 

Then I took the open book and began to recount, the great mysteries that had been woven in the very palms of His hands. I could see and understand that not all was as it seemed. His plan, so much bigger than I imagined or realised. 

As I wrote on the liquid gold pages of the open book, I was suddenly aware of multitudes to the right and to the left, each had an open book in front of them and each was writing the things that He had shown them. 

All seemed to finish at the same time and then, as if with one voice, they began to declare His plan and His purpose. I watched as things began to shift, not only in the heavens, but upon the earth. The volume rose as many became one with Him. These were the ones who had said, YES! 

Will you say “YES” to Him today? 

(NIV) Habakkuk 2: 1-3 

I will stand at my watch
and station myself on the ramparts;
I will look to see what he will say to me,
and what answer I am to give to this complaint. 

The Lord’s Answer 

Then the Lord replied: 

“Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.
For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay. 

(NIV) Revelation 1: 1-3 

The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. 

(NIV) Revelation 1: 19 

“Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 

(NIV) Malachi 1: 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.
