29/1/1/6 Territorial Eagles
There are so many of you who are like powerful eagles, so territorial in all you do. It is time to realise that I have made all in my church to be powerful. Powerful and free. It is time to honour each other and to show the world a better way. You do not need to operate under the world’s structure, that tries to claw and own everything it sees. It is time to lead the way in love. Come lay down your weapons, the cruel and demeaning words, the lies and false accusations against each other, the slander, the gossip, and all else that stems from wanting your own way and own will.
I call you to the higher way, to that of giving and receiving unconditional love, mercy and grace. I have extended it to you, will you not extend it to others? You are powerful and free in me. Love as I have loved you!
(NIV) John 13:34-35
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
(NIV) Romans 13:8-10
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbour. Therefore love is the fulfilment of the law.
(NIV) Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
28/1/16 Childish or Great?
You look at what you have done, and what you have achieved, and say it is rubbish. But I look at your heart first and foremost. Often, it is not what is done well that I celebrate over, but rather what has been done, firstly, from that place of love for me.
Do you not rejoice over the children’s drawings, even though to you they seem childish? You stick them up on your fridges and walls and celebrate, knowing that they came from a heart of love. I think what you do from that heart of love for me is great, no matter what anyone else says. I am proud of you, you are mine and I cherish you every day.
Do not think that the first faltering steps towards freedom that you take are of no avail, but realise I have called you to walk out into the fullness of who you are created to be. You carry my authority and life to all around you. Keep your heart pure for out of that springs life, I see it and I rejoice over you.
(NIV) Proverbs 4:23
Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
(NIV) Matthew 5:8
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
(NIV) 2 Timothy 2:22
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
27/1/16 Come away with me
Know that I am singing over you. I am raising my voice gently and speaking peace to your inner man. I am sweeping away those things that have stood before you and am making your path straight. I am lifting you gently into my arms and carrying you. Lean against me and allow me to shoulder those burdens that have become a weight of regret. Tiredness surrounds you and steals your strength. Come rest in me.
Rise up my beloved, and run with me through the wild flowers of the field. As your strength returns and your laughter explodes, we will dance together. Know the depth of my love, for it is deeper than any sea, higher than any mountain, for you are my bride.
(NIV) Matthew 11: 28-30
“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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
(NIV) Revelation 22: 17
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
26/1/16 Unglue your Feet
Do not allow yourself to be glued into a position that will not give you the opportunity to grow and move forward. I want you to develop and to be zealous for the more. You are not confined to just what you know in this moment. You have been created for the supernatural mysteries of my Kingdom. I have implanted into you my eternal seed, which is ever growing and ever shifting. Realise that I long for you to flow with my spirit and release the dreams that I have given you.
What is it that motivates your heart and drives you forward? Unglue your feet and move towards it. It is not out with your grasp. I encourage you to increase your momentum. Each step you take will become easier as you move toward the call that I have placed on your life.
(NIV) Philippians 3:10-14
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
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) Colossians 1:27-28
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
My sons and daughters, be aware of the depth of your feelings in every area of your walk. Feelings which are God given, are healthy and edifying, to your thought process. When you use them as a weapon against yourself, and allow them to run riot, through every part of your life, they then become, like quicksand and drag you down into a pit of despair that is not easy to climb out of, without assistance.
Bring your emotions into control and your mind becomes a fertile field, where dreams and sound direction will be its harvest. Fill yourself with all good things, read my word and hungrily eat fresh manna every day.
I am bringing around you people, who you can trust, to take on these places of pain, they will be those who will lift you out of the miry clay and again place your feet upon my rock.
(NIV) Proverbs 29: 11
Fools give full vent to their rage,
but the wise bring calm in the end.
(NIV) Psalm 40: 2-3
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
22/1/16 Breaking down the fences
My family, you have sensed in the past season the plans of the enemy to try and coral you, even to the point that you have watched the fences, being built around you, by those who do not understand your giftings and anointing. Some of this fencing has been constructed by those whom you respect and honour. This has opened the door to mistrust and especially misunderstanding. Which in turn has brought in the corralling of you, and your God given supernatural lifestyle.
I am breaking away the fences from around you, and the judgements of those keeping you trapped behind their offence. I am releasing you into the wide open space, so that you my friend, can once again run with the wild horses. This is your natural habitat, to be free, and to release my supernatural plans and purposes for your homes, towns, cities and nations.
Lift your head and run free, no tethers, no reins, no bit and bridal to control you. My love will sustain you and the Holy Spirit will teach you.
(NIV) Joel 2: 25a
I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm.
(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.
(NIV) John 14: 26-27
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
21/1/16 Growth Spurt
There is a supernatural quickening to your training and outreach, especially in the streets and market places. You will begin to see a steady stream of people who are asking questions about why you seem so different. You, my beloved will be reflecting me and my heart to everyone you meet, as you walk the walk, rather than just talking the talk.
When people see you on the highways and byways they will be excited for you carry the authority to bring my healing to every area of their lives, spirit, soul and body. When you lay hands on the sick, they will be healed in my name. You will enter places that others will never go, as you are filled with my peace, even in the face of danger or even death.
As you grow in my confidence, you will watch as the signs and wonders, will follow wherever you lay your foot.
(NIV) Isaiah 61: 6-8
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
and in their riches you will boast.
Instead of your shame
you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
and everlasting joy will be yours.
“For I, the Lord, love justice;
I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
and make an everlasting covenant with them.
(NIV) Acts 4: 29-31
Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
20/1/16 Step Out
Come walk with me, step out of the shadows, and come into the fullness of my light, for you my friend, are free to be you.
There have been many struggles in your walk, things, people, hardships, rejection, fear and hopelessness. Each one became the daily pattern of your existence, as the enemy reinforced all the negative lies around you, to keep you in the shadows, for he fears you becoming aware of your true potential as a citizen of heaven.
The enclosing shadows, have tried to keep you hidden in the darkness, but my light will always chase away the dark, there is no shadow deep enough to hold back my light of salvation. You, my friend are being transformed, as my light shines through you, all shadow retreats. You are my beacon, and you are drawing the lost and the hungry, like moths to a flame.
(NIV) Matthew 4: 16-17
the people living in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.”
From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
(NIV) Isaiah 43: 10-11
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me.
I, even I, am the Lord,
and apart from me there is no saviour.
19/1/16 Let Go
It is time for you to let go of the reigns. For several seasons you have been in the seat of power. You have had the authority to tell others to go here and go there. This season in your life has come to an end.
Take your hands off the tiller, and allow those you have taught, and embraced in all your love, to be free, to put on the mantles of authority, that I have released to them. Allow them to be the men and woman they are called to be in me. They have walked through the wilderness and desert places and have sat at my banquet as invited guests.
I sent them to you. As a teacher and leader you have fulfilled my call upon your life, but hear me now, it is time for you to come into a season of rest, come sit at my feet and relax.
(NIV) John 10: 1-3
After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
(NIV) Hebrews 4: 9-10
There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.
18/1/16 My Breath
When Adam and Eve were created, they were lifeless until I released my breath into them and they lived.
When the valley of dry bones came together and all body parts came into place, this great army were still lifeless until I released my breath into them, they then stood a mighty army, alive!
When each of you was released from your mother’s womb, the first thing you did was receive my breath, it filled your lungs and you let out a yell for you were alive.
I know you eternally. As you grow into adults, this world tries to dim your eyes and ears to the truth that you are set apart by me. My plans and purposes are on fire within your heart. You wonder why you are so attacked, and why others do not accept you. You know loneliness and tears are your close friends, but I catch every tear and bottle them up for you are mine, and my breath sustains you, as each new trial comes to you. Know that you carry my heart, my authority, my healing to the dead and dying of this dark world.
Release my breath and watch as a great and mighty army will arise, ready and prepared for the battle ahead.
(NIV) Genesis 2: 7-8
Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.
(NIV) Ezekiel 37: 4-6
Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”
(NIV) Psalm 139: 13-16
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
15/1/16 Support Needed and Given
At times my family, I have sent you helpers and sustainers, sometimes you have not recognised them and have pushed them away. You saw them as interfering and controlling, trying to push you into places you did not want to go.
You my beloved have entertained angels. They have sat with you in your home, on park benches, in your church. They are the ones who do not look like anything, they flow into your life for seconds, minutes, sometime hours and days, they bring kingdom wisdom to your situation, they leave behind answers that you never had, and you will probably never see them again in your earthly lifetime.
These are the lifters of your arms, they hold you up in your times of weakness, next time some toothless, unkempt wanderer sits beside you, and speaks wisdom into the very core of your being, know that I sent him.
(NIV) Hebrews 1: 13-14
To which of the angels did God ever say,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet”?
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
(NIV) Hebrews 13: 1-3
Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
14/1/16 A Fresh Diet
What enters you defines you.
Those thoughts and fears that have been attacking you over the past season, have been given permission to do so by you. My friends, what you allow in your life will become the guide for the direction of your steps, and thoughts in every part of your journey.
When you watch films and soaps, filled with death, demonic, lust, depression and oppression, and then wonder why you are getting bad dreams and visitations from the spiritual realms. You opened your eye gates and the door to your thoughts and mind. These snares will happily enter and find a home. They will settle down and bring confusion, doubt, fear and desolation to you and your walk in me.
Break the chains of slavery to this world.
A fresh Diet is called for to bring you to a better place of healthy kingdom living. Speak to me as you get up in the morning, open the living word and eat your fill, pray and worship for these are the natural sugars for your diet. The Holy Spirit fills you, allow his prompting to become the nudge you need as to what is good for you or not. Close down the portals of sin and again dance on the streets that are golden.
(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) 2 Corinthians 6: 14-18
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”
(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.
13/1/16 Furious Love
There are many who will come around each other in this new season. They will not talk the same or even look like each other. They will have different names and they may even worship differently. But each will love with my furious love. They will leave their differences behind them, and take up the new mantle of togetherness.
Where these differences would have caused spirits of strife and separation before, they will have no battle ground to cause such conflict, as the hunger that my brothers and sisters have for a fresh spirit of togetherness outweighs all conflict and misunderstandings.
Come let us stand together, no barriers, no religion, only furious Love.
(NIV) John 15: 12-14
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command.
(NIV) Romans 12: 1-21
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
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.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
12/1/16 Season of Completion
There are many with unfulfilled Prophetic words hanging over your lives. You have put them on the shelf and then waited for your transition of time, and space, to catch up with the timing of the kingdom of God.
It’s Time! Open your treasure chests as my word over you now, and for the rest of your lives, is yes and amen.
Stretch up and lift down these dusty jars of promises, open them, and pour out the contents of those prophetic calls, and watch as you and your community are transformed by the power and authority of my word.
There are many pastors and leaders among you, Prophets and seers too. There are world changers and church builders, worship leaders and tea makers, doormen and women, greeters and meeters. There are those who care with a coffee and a chat, and some who open their homes for hospitality.
Each one carries the heart of a servant leader.
This is the season of completion.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 12: 1-11
Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 12: 27-31
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.
11/1/16 Fragrant Voices
From the very core of the hearts of my family I command the prophetic worshipers to arise.
These are not just the worship leaders, but everyone who lifts my name, and kingdom, in worship and praise. I call forth the prophetic words and songs, especially the new songs being birthed supernaturally, in your dreams, in the quiet of the night hours. You will begin to hear new power and fresh revelation in your songs and music, as you come into my presence.
I am releasing fresh mantles of praise and worship to the singers and musicians.
My fragrance will rise with your voices, and my perfume of salvation, will wash the feet of those who hear your prophetic song.
(NIV) John 4:23-24
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 2: 14-15
But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. We are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
8/1/16 Alone! With a great multitude
There are many who sense they are alone in their walk. Those who are around them, family and friends, do not understand who or what they are. Confusion is an enemy, as all you want in your heart, is to be understood, and free to be who you are. You become isolated as you pull into yourself, and your identity becomes all the thoughts in your own head.
You my beloved are never alone. Wherever you are I AM with you. The armies of heaven are surrounding you, and you have the council of the Holy Spirit, 24hours a day, every day of your life.
I say to you look up and see.
(NIV) 2 Kings 6; 15-17
When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
As this new season moves forward, it will bring a fresh momentum to your spiritual awareness and well-being. You will quickly become aware of new strength and stamina in your daily health levels.
I am releasing a wave of supernatural healing to your body and your mind. Where the enemy has tried to stop you, with ill health, and even tried to steal the very thoughts from your head, I am bringing clarity of thought and understanding. No more days of confusion.
Stretch out your arms and lift your hands to heaven, sense the release of all tension from the top of your head, to the base of your feet. Breathe in the fresh breath of freedom.
(NIV) Romans 12: 1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
(NIV) Galatians 5: 1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
6/1/16 No Half Measures
I call my people who stand by my name, to come into the fullness of their kingdom identity. No more measuring their worldly lives against their kingdom citizenship.
I bought you out of the life that only brought death and destruction to you by the shedding of my blood. I took your stripes so that you would not have to. I died for you to have life, and I took back what was lost for you to have the keys of the kingdom. My resurrection bought you life and life abundantly.
There were never any half measures poured out by me for you. I gave it all for you my beloved.
What will you give?
(NIV) Isaiah 53: 3-6
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.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
(NIV) 1 Peter 1: 2-4
who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood:
Grace and peace be yours in abundance.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you.
As this new season opens before you, delve into the deep, and move even deeper into my word, for there is fresh revelation being released to you. Open your spiritual eyes as I pour over you streams of living water, for you are one who will flow in my revelatory gifts. I am going to fill your life with kingdom knowledge. Many will come to you and ask for the blue prints for the seasons ahead.
I will come to you in your dreams and in the waking hours. You will know, that you know, my plans and purposes. You will be called prophet and you will become known all over the world.
Put aside the cares and trappings of this world and walk beside me, know me as I know you.
(NIV) Jeremiah 29: 11-13
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.
(NIV) 2 Peter 1: 19-21
We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 14: 37-40
If anyone thinks they are a prophet or otherwise gifted by the Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord’s command. But if anyone ignores this, they will themselves be ignored.
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.
4/1/16 My Story
My beloved you are my story, everything within me hungers after you. I delight in your attention when you lift your voice in prayer. It is like the dripping sweetness of the honey comb. Your words are like musical notes rising upon the wind. As you dance for me, the ribbons in your hands are like the waves of the sea, powerful and majestic and yet there is so much more depth for you.
Come deeper into me; listen for my whisper among the trees. I will pursue you my beloved with laughter and joy, we will dance among the wild flowers and walk in the garden, for you are my story.
(NIV) Song of Songs 4: 9-16
You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride;
you have stolen my heart
with one glance of your eyes,
with one jewel of your necklace.
How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride!
How much more pleasing is your love than wine,
and the fragrance of your perfume
more than any spice!
Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride;
milk and honey are under your tongue.
The fragrance of your garments
is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride;
you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.
Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates
with choice fruits,
with henna and nard,
nard and saffron,
calamus and cinnamon,
with every kind of incense tree,
with myrrh and aloes
and all the finest spices.
You are a garden fountain,
a well of flowing water
streaming down from Lebanon.
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.
2/1/16 A word in Season
Unity, Integrity and Purity
I looked out and saw a vast plain, covered in darkness and shadow. In the middle of the plain there was a valley. The valley was wide at its entrance and narrowed as it went. It was filled with people who carried His light. At the widest part the light was diffuse but the narrower the valley got, the greater the intensity of the light coming from the people, so much so that it appeared as a corridor of light stretching off into the distance.
From the valley, roads ran from both the wide and narrow places up into the darkness and shadow of the plain. Those carrying His light would go into the darkness, and the light would chase away the dark. They would then return with one or two or even thousands who had seen the light in the darkness and were drawn to His light. All would return by the pathway to the wide open place and those who had come from the narrow place would return to it.
The wide valley is where we all as Christians began our walk, entering in through the wide gate. As we become more humble and begin to walk in His truth, revelation and maturity become our close friends. As we become more aware through the living word and direction of the Holy Spirit, we mature in light and truth. Our actions and deeds are transformed and we become more aware of what true Unity and Integrity in Christ Jesus looks like.
We, my brothers and sisters are called to walk on the narrow road, the place of intense light, for you are called to be His light to this dark world.
(NIV) Matthew 7: 13-14
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Wisdom is a friend we should embrace more and more. Unity, Integrity and Purity is the Kingdom call on all our lives. The days of half measures are behind us, as the world gets darker we become more intense. The light within each of us must be given the right to complete freedom over every part of our lives, so that as we enter the darkness, our light will shine and draw the thousands into the light of salvation.
(NIV) James 3: 13-18
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
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.
Purity in all aspects of our daily walk will keep our feet firmly upon the narrow road. Are you willing to allow the humbling of your heart?
(NIV) James 4: 1-12
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
“God opposes the proud
but shows favour to the humble.”
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Brothers and sisters do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbour?
1/1/16 Walk Right In
The door is open wide for you today for a whole new adventure, a season where every blockage is broken down. There is nothing to block your view of my kingdom, no words of rejection, no hate, and no problem too big or small.
Just an open doorway, will you walk right in? You can carry nothing from the last season past this door it must be left behind you, at the entrance. As you put it down you will sense the shift, and the weight of the past will fall away from you.
My friend you are now free to step into your adventure in me.
Come let us walk together.
(NIV) Revelation 3: 7b-8
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
1/1/16 Happy New Year
There is a real sense of the shift in the heavenlies that has taken place as the clocks moved from 2015 to 2016.
In the Jewish calendar, we have already entered a year of Jubilee and there is going to be greater freedom to preach and to see an increase in harvest.
This year holds amazing promises from the Father as we move into all that He has for us.
This is a year when we will see increased unity within the body of Christ and old hurts and wounds will see amazing grace poured out over them.
Personal relationships will come into alignment, some that have been separated for years, will suddenly allow old wounds to drop on each side, and there will be a sense of “what were we fighting about? Life is far too short for this”.
Corporate relationships will begin to be healed within many groups within the body of Christ. There will be greater acceptance for those with differing views and those who have been concerned with the new things that are coming in the body of Christ. Walls will begin to come down and there will be those individuals who will arise within each of the bodies who will be known as the repairers of the breaches.
The call for holiness is increasing even at this moment, as those who love the Lord are putting away more and more of the things that have held them from moving forward. Their hearts are rising with a burning passion to be known as those who have been set apart for such a time as this.
Particularly within the young, there is arising a group of those who are choosing to stay pure, in spite of the pressures of the world. As these ones stay pure, the increase of the anointing is going to flow through them to see a greater increase of the supernatural. Many of them will arise with strong voices and will lead many into the kingdom of God. They too will proclaim with Paul that I did not come with wise and persuasive words but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power. Many have been hidden and are now being called into the realms of the seen. Many young women will arise as those who teach and preach, the gags are being removed.
This will be a year of increased harvest, as many who have been afraid of going into the highways and byways, will suddenly find themselves, filled with a boldness and courage that springs from the Spirit of God.
Even now a large net is being cast and where there have been holes the Lord has already had His intercessors do the repair work, so that this time, large numbers of people will come into the Kingdom. This will require a greater working together and it will be Kingdom based rather than denominational based. The outcome will be those who will walk on, and grow in the grace and knowledge of having Jesus as Lord and Saviour. There will not be a falling away as there has been in the past but a continued and healthy growth.
All these things will be marked by an increase of God’s love, that is God’s love in and for us. Once again we will be a people known by all for our love one for another.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (AMP)
If I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophetic powers (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).
Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not love (God’s love in me), I gain nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:4-6 (NIV rewritten with God’s love in us, not our own love)
God’s love in us is patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud. God’s love in us does not dishonour others, is not self seeking, is not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs. God’s love in us does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God’s love in us always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
