31/7/15 Dance and Celebrate
Pick up your instruments and play with gusto. Singers lift up your voices and listen as the heavenly choirs join in. Dancers glide and twirl, jump and shout. Painters open your colours and mix, bring forth the images to be created upon your canvas. Flag wavers run with your flags of flame and power as the Holy Spirit blows through and over all.
Celebrate for you are mine. When the people of this earth look at you and watch as you are lost in celebration, filled with laughter and joy, they will not understand! They will ask “Is this not the Christians, the ones we persecute and make life hard for?” “Yes” will be the reply, “How can this be?”
As you dance and celebrate, all the barriers will come tumbling down, for you my brothers and sisters, know that each of you, are passing through this earth, as my kingdom is your home for eternity.
(NIV) Psalm 150: 1-6
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 4-10
As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”
“A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
My beautiful church, I want you to understand what honour means between the family of God.
Honour is the point where each of you holds the needs of those around you more highly than your own needs. There is no place for punishment when honouring each other, for your love for one another should outweigh your fleshly need, to punish those who do not look like you, speak like you and walk like you.
My family, each of you walk as I walk; you are a reflection of me. I do not hold any sin against you for all was paid in full at the cross. Honour one another, there is no abuse in honour, there is only love.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 12: 25-27
So that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
(NIV) Romans 12: 9-11
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
As the prophetic words over your life come to fruition, I am releasing to each of you, fresh prophetic callings. I am moving many of you into new places and new time zones; you will learn new cultures and new languages. You will be far from the places of your birth, and yet you will be nation changers.
My beloved Bride, as we move into this season, with more hunger for kingdom values on this earth as never before, we stand together, shoulder to shoulder a mighty army of faith. Each called out by name, prepared and anointed, carrying the weapons of spiritual warfare.
In the armour of God, we move forward as one, there is no room for those with their own agendas, their own empires to build. This army has one goal to see Gods people set free, and the Kingdom of God to be established on earth as it is in heaven.
(NIV) Acts 28: 30-31
For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!
(NIV) Colossians 1:15-17
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
28/7/15 Time and tide waits for no-one
Beloved, do not hold back, take those steps forward, for time is short and will not wait for you to catch up. Do not be among those, who as time passes, look back with regret and wished you had done more, taken more risks and loved more deeply.
Even as you take that first step into all I have called you to, I am waiting to take you on a whirlwind ride, full of adventures and joy. Do you not know that you are My bride and I delight to reveal myself to you? I have so much to show you and a great many things for you to enjoy. Do you want to walk on water? Then beloved you have to get out of the boat and take risks. Let your faith in Me soar today, and remember that I am the rewarder of those who believe.
(NIV) Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
(NIV) Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
27/7/15 No Storm Clouds
My family, this day I have made for you. It will be a day of sunshine, filled with love and warmth. There will be no storm cloud over you or your families, for I have called out to the storms and told them to “stop”. No more rain, no more wind and no more tempest in your life, it is finished. I have spoken and I command all things on earth as it is in Heaven.
Step out my beautiful bride in all your grace and splendour, for this day is a day of miracles, take hold of what you need in your body, and be healed. Walk into your complete healing with boldness and authority.
I embrace you my beloved in my strong arms and I will walk with you and dance with you, in my garden surrounded by the flowers of summer.
(NIV) Galatians 3: 4-6
Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
(NIV) Luke 12: 22-32
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
(NIV) Song of Songs 6: 2-3
My beloved has gone down to his garden,
to the beds of spices,
to browse in the gardens
and to gather lilies.
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine;
he browses among the lilies.
Lift up your hearts in praise, come worship like never before!
Beloved I have set My heart on you. You are the apple of My eye. You are My song. You are the picture that I look at every morning. You are the one My heart desires. I sent My Son just for you. You are My treasured possession. I sing songs of deliverance over you. I collect your tears. I have counted the hairs on your head. I am your banner. I am your deliverer and fierce protector. I am your healer. I am your provider. I am your peace. I am the one who delights in you. You are my beloved. Remember who I am for you.
For surely I am the one who was, who is and who is to come. Let your heart soar in worship today!
(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) Revelation 15:4
Who will not fear you, Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.
23/7/15 New Wardrobe
As I open the wardrobe door to your life, I see the array of clothing hung up in there and I say to you my beloved, it is time for a new set of clothes.
The first thing I remove is the coat of rejection. It is now old and grubby, has no style to it and is outdated in your life. A new coat I give to you, the coat of righteousness, wear it, for you have been made righteous through me.
I take out the cloak of shame and regret and throw it away. And you shall wear a new cloak, called freedom and love. You have been set free to live a life of love, sharing my freedom in you, to all that come in contact with you.
I remove the shoes of past journeys, where grief and sadness were their destination. I place upon your feet new shoes that will carry you into my plan and purpose for your life.
I remove everything that remains in your wardrobe, and cast it into the fire. These things will never again be seen in the light of day, for now your wardrobe contains all that I have for you, every blessing and good thing. Wear it, knowing that you my friend were created to stand out, and not fit in.
(NIV) Ephesians 6: 10-18
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
As you place me into the compartments of your life, I become boxed in with your fears, your worries and especially your plan and purpose. The lids of the boxes are then slowly closed, and all freedom is shut down in your life. Everything in you becomes hidden away.
Let us break out of these boxes together, let us force open the doors that have held you, and allow my light to invade all those hidden places in your life. I want to walk through the forest of your thoughts, and bring fresh alignment with Kingdom thinking. I want to watch as the breath of my Spirit begins to blow through the trees of indecision and release you into a life of clarity and vision.
I want to watch you stretch, and lift your hands to the heavens, and know that all tiredness is gone.
I want to see you laugh and shout, to sing and cry and to dance and paint. I want to see you free.
(NIV) Isaiah 44: 21-23
“Remember these things, Jacob,
for you, Israel, are my servant.
I have made you, you are my servant;
Israel, I will not forget you.
I have swept away your offenses like a cloud,
your sins like the morning mist.
Return to me,
for I have redeemed you.”
Sing for joy, you heavens, for the Lord has done this;
shout aloud, you earth beneath.
Burst into song, you mountains,
you forests and all your trees,
for the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
he displays his glory in Israel.
21/7/15 Listen with Wisdom
There are many among you, who enjoy the sound of their own voice, and the power and authority that comes from their demands, upon you and your life. They come and say they speak for me and my kingdom. They are not of me.
Listen with Wisdom in your spiritual ears, ask the Holy Spirit to bring revelation. Those that I send to you will bring love, joy, hope and especially peace. They carry my heart to my family. Their words will caress your spirit and hold you close. They will be my servant leaders, sent to each of you, to bring comfort and to release to you all the treasures of heaven.
My leaders come, to teach and to set you free, into the full calling I have for your life.
(NIV) 2 Peter 2: 1-3
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
(NIV) 2 Timothy 2: 14-16
Keep reminding God’s people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.
20/7/15 Release My Kingdom
Beloved, soak in My Spirit daily. Allow Me to infuse you, to soften your heart and to permeate every pore of your being. Be filled with Me, let Me ooze from the very core of your spirit. I would have you as those who would spread abroad the fragrance of My presence everywhere you go. You are My Kingdom people. As you move and pray, so the atmospheres will change in the very center of your villages, towns, cities and nations. Do not look and see doom and gloom, instead see the opportunities for My Spirit to bring change. See the impossibilities become possibilities. See death become life. See confusion give way to clarity. See hopelessness become hopefulness. See the eyes once dead become alive. Live and breathe me, and see the release of My Kingdom throughout the earth.
(NIV) Matthew 19:26
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 2:14
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.
17/7/15 Needs Met
I am releasing to you a deeper understanding of the needs of those around you, as you look to their wounds, and bring the balm of healing, into their lives. Your own life will come into alignment with kingdom culture.
Your courage will be a beacon to many, and will bring others to the full knowledge of salvation. You, my friend will see such a move of Holy Spirit, in your life and those around you.
Ask and you shall receive.
(NIV) John 15: 15-17
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.
16/7/15 In My Arms
I brush away the tears of yesterday as I hold you close, my beautiful one. I look deeply into your eyes and I watch as the pools of living water, rise and overflow into every part of your life, where there has been grief and sadness, it is being washed away.
Feel my arms around you and know that I protect you, from the plans and attacks of the enemy.
There is a fresh wind blowing through your life, a wind of change that carries a hunger for more of me and less of the adornments of this world.
Seek me and you will find all that you require, to live a life filled with every good thing.
(NIV) Luke 8: 24-25
The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”
He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.
In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
(NIV) Matthew 6: 32-34
For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Many of you have been walking through times where, you have found everything swirling around you.
During this season it has been difficult to see clearly which path you should take. The swirling has caused many past issues, that you thought had been settled, to come to the surface once again. Take your hands off the past problems and issues and allow Me to deal with them once and for all. You shall not see them raise their heads again. Even now you will find a grace and mercy to see broken relationships restored and healed. Trust Me and keep your eyes, heart and mind focused ahead to the new and the fresh. I will wipe away every trace of the past things once and for all.
(NIV) Isaiah 43:19
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
(NIV) Luke 9:62
Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”
14/7/15 Free Speech
Are you silenced by the sin in this world? Are you overawed by the abject poverty of some, and yet the rich live in luxury beyond compare. Do you have a voice? Are you allowed to speak in a world that says sin is good and righteousness is evil?
Who is your master this day? Is it the world or is it the King of Kings? DO you hide in fear of the judgements of man, who demand you accept their ruling whether it is right or wrong in accordance to the living word of God?
Do you shrink back into the shadows, so that your light is not seen?
You are my light in this world. You are my voice to speak out the truth of my living word. Signs and Wonders will follow you. Fear not the face of man, for I will fill your mouth with words of wisdom.
There is no prison that can contain those who are free in me.
(NIV) Isaiah 41: 9-11
I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you.I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
“All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced;those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.
(NIV) Revelation 2: 9-11
I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know about the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death.
Beloved, don’t you know that I have engraved you on the palm of My hand, even as you use pictures to remind yourself of those you love, so I constantly remind Myself of the love I have for you.
There are so many times I long for you to come and talk with Me. I long to see you come to Me, not out of a sense of duty but out of the depth of love you have for Me. So many things grasp your attention and distract you from Me, and yet I know that the longing of your heart, is to come to me without walls and without barriers.
The way stands open, there is no longer a veil to separate you from Me, Jesus died to remove that barrier forever, the price has been paid. I long for that place, that first place in your heart. Come to Me.
(NIV) Matthew 27:50-52a
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open.
(NIV) Psalm 34:11
Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
10/7/15 Spiritual Seekers
There are many seeking spiritual maturity and for these to attain to all that I have for them, the spiritual teachers need to stand up and be counted. I have poured out my spirit on you and yet many of you are still trying to fit into a worldly identity, when you have been created to stand out and be the voice in the wilderness, saying “prepare ye the way of the lord”.
People are searching in the all the wrong places and many find their first spiritual contact with familiars (demons), that have been sent to entrap the seekers and shackle them.
The harvest is ripe, yet the workers are few. Put down your fears and pick up my anointing as Spiritual teachers. Guide those that I send to you into a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit, and with my living word, Jesus, and watch as fire and power fills them as they mature into, spiritual leaders.
(NIV) Colossians 2: 7-8
rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
(NIV) Ephesians 4: 1-16
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:
“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”
(What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) 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.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
9/7/15 Water of Life
Hear my voice and do as I say. Write for the time is coming when the lame will leap as the deer, and those who have been chained, will throw off their shackles and run free.
The deeds of darkness will be exposed, and My Sceptre will come out of Zion, and many will rally to my side.
And Scotland, cry out for Scotland! She shall be released from her garment of heaviness, the grey and the dark, and she will array herself with Gold, in freshness and newness, and colour will come back to her glens and the Water of Life will again flow through them.
Hear the cries of the faithful in every nation of this world as you hunger after the water of life.
(NIV) Psalm 107: 13-15a
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
and broke away their chains.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
(NIV) Revelation 21: 5-7
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
8/7/15 Breathe Out Revival
My sons and daughters, frustration is your enemy, if you allow it access to your life, your ministry and especially your church. Each day will be filled with stress. It will seem to you that everything you do will never be good enough. There will be desperation within you for time to speed up, to bring in the fulfilment of your calling.
Let out your breath, exhale, and draw in a fresh breath. Allow all frustration to flow away from yourself and your ministry. Let the Holy Spirit roam freely through your church and church family. Know that my timing is perfect for you and those around you and everything is coming to fruition.
Move forward in alignment with each other, fully aware that each of you is called and carry exactly the right anointings, that when used together in unity, will bring about revival in your towns and cities.
Live in my peace and Love.
(NIV) Ecclesiastes 3: 1
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens.
(NIV) Galatians 6: 9-10
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
(NIV) 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.
7/7/15 Pain Free
My sons and daughters, do not let pain and hurt have a freedom in your bodies. For when you allow them to remain in you, they will go anywhere they want to in your life.
Pain and hurt, when given freedom to live in you, will go inwards, and wrap themselves around every emotion and thought that you have every day. Their sole desire is to ruin every relationship that you have with your family and friends. They hunger after every good thought you have of yourself, and when you begin to soar in me, they will come and tell you that you are nobody and are not worth anything.
Pain and hurt are liars. They can only consume what is laid down for them to eat.
I cast out pain and hurt from your lives. From this day they will have no hold over you. Give them no permission to be in and around your life. Take back the ground that they have robbed from you. Take back the relationships, the friends, the family and even your own walk in the kingdom.
Let us stand together in victory, as you rise into the full anointing and calling that I have released into your life, for you carry my mantle of authority.
(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) Joel 2: 24-26
The threshing floors will be filled with grain;
the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.
“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—
my great army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
6/7/15 Just like dad
(NIV) John 14: 8-10
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
Who do you look like? Are you known for your kindness and generosity? Maybe it is your sense of fun and laughter or are you a dancer with the voice of an angel? Are you the one who helps those who have no help? Do you open your life and your home to the destitute? Do you write songs that bring joy and tears? Possibly you are a musician that releases music from your heart that brings gasps from the hearer.
When you move in the gifts and anointings that have been released to each of you, and show true compassionate love to your neighbours, each of you reflects me, as I reflect the Father through me.
(NIV) John 17: 23-25
I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.
When you push a plug into a socket and flip the switch, that plug then sends the power of electricity down the wire and empowers the lights and gadgets in your home to come to life.
The Kingdom is like this plug. When you my sons and daughters, connect to me through the Holy Spirit, your full power and potential are released to flow through you, and into all around you. If the need that surrounds you is healing, then healing is released.
Only through relationship can a continued connection be established between us, through worship and dance, in prayer and the reading of my word, and through art and poetry. All these things keep us connected, so that a two way flow of infinite power flows from me to you.
(NIV) John 15: 4-5
Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
2/7/15 My Voice
Wake up beloved, arise and come forth from your chamber of slumber. Hear my voice calling to you, hear the whispers and know that I am drawing you to myself at this time. Many are the voices calling for your attention. Many are good, but not all are the best.
Learn from Me, learn My ways, learn My thoughts. I am so willing to sit with you and commune with you. I am not distant and aloof. I am not unkind or uncaring. I see in you such beauty, My gaze is fixed on you. Come, My arms are open wide. Open your heart, your mind and your will to Me. Watch as I feed you the very manna of heaven. I will pour out upon you the oil of joy and give you garments of praise. My heart is ever for you, My beloved.
(NIV) John 10:27-28
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.
(NIV) Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip –
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you –
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm –
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and for evermore.

Are you a king or a Queen, a bishop or a priest? Are you rich or poor? Do you live in a palace or a slum? Do you eat well or have very little to eat? Do you wear splendour or rags? What is upon your feet, shoes or dirt? Do you know me as your Lord and Saviour? Is my name upon your lips?
My family are known to me, I watched them being knit together in their mothers’ womb. Each of their names are written in the book of life.
My beloved knows where they fit in. They belong to eternity in the kingdom of the one true God. Their names are etched into the palms of my hands, and their sins are washed clean in my blood.
They wear robes of righteousness, pure and clean and they have no fear of death, for those who put their faith in me, will not feel the sting of death, for each of you are eternal beings.
(NIV) Isaiah 49: 15-16a
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15: 55-57
“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.
