29/7/16 Hold Your Tongue
My beloved, when those around you begin to speak about you or even into your life, step back before you answer, take a breath and allow me to fill your mouth, with words of wisdom.
Do not speak out of your emotions, for they can and will lie to you, as the enemy tries to manipulate what your ears have heard, to bring division, between brothers and sisters, leaders, pastors and churches.
I call you to be the peace makers, to stand before the storm and command it to be still.
(NIV) Psalm 81: 10
I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
(NIV) James 5: 8-10
You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!
Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
(NIV) James 3: 17-18
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
28/7/16 Empty Cups, Filled with Glory
There is an enemy who hungers after every one of you. He seeks to bring doubt and confusion. He whispers to you lies and deceit. He says that your cup is empty and that you are starving and there is no refreshing for you, that you are unprotected. As his words sink deeper into you, his oppression begins to take hold of your mind. Your fears, your hurts and offence of others begin to fill you, your eyes grow dim, shadows fill your view, cold seeps into every joint and he laughs and laughs.
I will never leave your cup empty. I will always fill it to overflowing. My beloved rivers of living waters will flow out of you. I am the bread of life. I will always have fresh bread for you every second of every day. You will never go hungry. I will hold you through all the days of your life. I shower you with my undying love. My hope is yours, fear has no home here.
Rise, My sons and daughters in the early morning light, put on the full armour. Eat of the fresh bread that has been prepared for you from My living word. Drink from cups filled with My living waters, and rise, refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
You are mine and My light fills the temple, you are My living temple upon this earth.
(NIV) Isaiah 55: 10-12
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
(NIV) John 6: 35
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
(NIV) Psalm 27: 1
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
27/7/16 Be Ready
I am coming as a twinkling in the eye, be ready for my arrival, be prepared, for only those who carry my heart, my love, my joy and especially my salvation, will rise with me and be carried into the air.
Don’t hold back, this is not a time to be complacent and tarry with your decision making, run forward into my arms of salvation and be transformed. Wait not for understanding in the flesh for it may be too late. Call out my name, and I will run to you and wrap my arms around you and you will be with me for eternity.
(NIV) Hebrews 2: 2-4
For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15: 51-53
Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.
26/7/16 Carried to Safety
My beloved, when you call out my name in your times of distress I will come running to you.
As the Lion of Judah I stand tall and magnificent, rippling muscles, ready to run to the call of the faithful. I am coming to lift you and carry you to the place of safety were the enemy has no reach.
I stand on the tall mountains looking down over all the earth. Nowhere can the enemy touch where I do not see.
Be bold my sons, my daughters and call out My name and know that I will run to My Beloved to lift you up.
(NIV) Psalm 4:8
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety.
(NIV) Psalm 27:5-6
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
(NIV) Ezekiel 43: 4-5
The glory of the Lord entered the temple through the gate facing east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.
25/7/16 How to speak THE WORD
My sons and daughters, you carry a heart of love and caring for others, you will go out of your way and pour out everything you carry to those in need of comfort. You put others before your own, even when it hurts you and your family. You look outwards and not inwards for you each carry my heart to the world.
Weariness is the enemy to your bodies and even into your bones. Exhaustion will come and steal your strength. You will not want to rise from your bed. Your family will be neglected and you will be open to every snare of the enemy.
You are mine and I Love you with an unquenchable love. I want you to hear and use this word at times for I am calling you into a season of rest. The word is “NO”.
(NIV) Isaiah 54: 17
no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.
(NIV) 1 Peter 5: 8-10
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
(NIV) John 16: 15
All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
22/7/16 Your Mustard Seed
Why do you doubt, the words that I have released over you and your life? I have spoken audibly through my prophets and through my word. I have come to you in your dreams. I have whispered in your ears through the night hours. I have opened the very heart of heaven and my glory to you.
We have stood in the halls of heaven together, family, co-equal in all inheritance.
I have given you all that you require to fulfil what has been asked of you, pick up your mustard seed.
(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) Romans 8: 16-17
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) Matthew 17: 20
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
The transition that each of you are going through, seems slow and sluggish and some of you believe that I have taken my hand off of you. This is not true. I will never leave you or forsake you. My family seek first my Kingdom and know that your citizenship is already recorded in the book of Life and as you seek all things will be added to you.
The gifts that I have placed within your hands are to bring about a revival, never before seen in the world. This takes time and, for some, more than one season. Do not rush forward, but wait upon my guiding through the Holy Spirit. You beloved will know in the depths of your being when it is time to release all that you carry in my name.
(NIV) Galatians 6: 9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
(NIV) Romans 11: 29
God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.
(NIV) Revelation 21: 26-27
The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
20/7/16 New Wells
I am releasing to you my sons and daughters, new wells of refreshing water. They can only be found in the dry and arid places.
Those who wander in the deserts of pain and confusion will find drinking fountains where they were never found before. New pools, of fresh clean water, surrounded by fruit trees will be their portion.
Come drink and eat, be filled and know that I will turn the deserts into gardens of beauty and the arid places into lakes of peace, where the birds will sing and the land will be healed.
(NIV) Isaiah 58: 10-12
And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
(NIV) 2 Chronicles 7: 14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
19/7/16 You are Beautiful
Beloved, I look at and see you so differently to the way you see yourself. My eyes do not see you as you now are, but I see you as you were created to be.
I know the end from the beginning. I see the beauty that is contained within. I know everything about you. All your days were written in my book before one of them came to be.
You have been set apart from the foundation of the world. See even now I am calling you higher in me. I am calling you forth into the fullness of my promise. Beloved, lay aside every care, every weight and know that I am on your case. Turn and look at me and know that you are being transformed into my likeness.
You are beautiful to me.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
(NIV) Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
(NIV) Song of Songs 2: 10-11
My beloved spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
18/7/16 Healed and Sealed
My beautiful, beautiful Bride, there is an awareness of an increased enemy attack upon your health, your emotions and your mind. It is wearing you out emotionally and physically. This is to place you into a hopeless despair, where all you can see is emptiness, where all you feel is loneliness, where all you sense, is that no one is standing beside you. The enemy has cause to be concerned, for he knows his time is short, he will release, and continue to release, everything he has against the Bride.
My beautiful, beautiful Bride, the enemy is the father of all lies, you are mine and I will never ever let you go. I hold you in my loving arms, I AM my beloveds and she is mine. Healed and Sealed in my heart for eternity.
(NIV) John 3: 29a
The bride belongs to the bridegroom.
(NIV) 2 Timothy 2: 19
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
(NIV) Ecclesiastes 3: 11-12
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.
15/7/16 Trim your sails
My beautiful family, you are the apple of my eye. My love for you fills every part of me; there is nothing I will not do for you.
I have poured out my Spirit upon you. The wind that blows through your sails, that takes you to new places and lands, filled with wonders are my gift to you. That you may go further than you could ever imagine, for you are my Sons and Daughters.
You are the mighty ships that sail upon the ocean of time, sent forth to bring home the Harvest.
(NIV) Psalm 17: 7-8
Show me the wonders of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
(NIV) Matthew 9: 37-38
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
(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.
14/7/16 Seeds of Revival
My beloved, in every apple there is an orchard and in every believer there is a revival.
Take an apple cut it in two, remove the seeds, seek fertile ground, dig holes and place one seed in each hole, cover, take care of and you will be blessed with an apple orchard with each apple containing another orchard in everyone of them.
Take one of my sons or daughters, fill with my Spirit, release what they carry over fertile ground, take care of what has been freed through prayer and tending of that ground and you will see others come to harvest.
As each one carry’s the seeds of fresh revival, inside of them.
(NIV) Psalm 17: 7-8
Show me the wonders of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 9: 9-11
As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
(NIV) Revelation 14: 14-15
I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”
My Beloved, keep your eyes fixed on me, unwaveringly. Look straight ahead for I have made the road before you, do not look back for there is nothing there that belongs to you. Walk where I have left my footprints, for I have walked the path ahead of you and prepared the way, do not look to the left or the right for only distraction lies in that direction.
Be aware my Sons and Daughters, that there will be those sent around you who are there to be distractions to you, to come between you and the vision of what I have released over your life through the Holy Spirit. Test the Spirit of what they carry, seek and you will find.
(NIV) Proverbs 4: 24-26
Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead;
fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet
and be steadfast in all your ways.
(NIV) 1 John 4: 1-3
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
12/7/16 Permission Granted
Beloved, many of you have felt overlooked and forgotten. You have asked time and time again why not me? Why can’t I do that? I have all the qualifications that are necessary. I’m able to do this or that. You have looked and waited for the permission to go do what you know I’ve spoken into your heart.
Rise up and move forward knowing that I have already spoken. I have already given you permission to go into the entire world, to preach the good news, to make disciples of all nations and to teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.
I have also given you permission to heal the sick, to raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and to drive out demons. It was never meant to stay within four walls but was meant for the whole world.
You are not overlooked. Permission is granted!
(NIV) Matthew 10:8
Heal those who are ill, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
(NIV) Matthew 28:18-20
‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
(NIV) 1 Peter 4: 10-11
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.
11/7/16 Victory Is Yours
Do not be led around by every whim of this world. You are like one being led by another who holds you with a chain and metal collar around your throat, where they decide to go you must follow. This world demands your attention in all its ways; it catches your eyes, then your interest and finally your will. This world drags you, kicking and screaming into the very pit of hell, for that is the plan of its master.
My sons and daughters, you are to be set apart from them, this world does not fill your view, for your eyes are fixed upon my kingdom. I broke the chains of your oppression by the finished work of the Cross. No man or woman has charge over your life, every chain and collar, broken and removed by my Spirit.
My beloved church we have already conquered and won every battle, we stand victorious over every plan of the enemy.
(NIV) Isaiah 58: 6
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15: 53-54
For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15: 56-58
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
8/7/16 Mind Bombs
My beloved family, there is an enemy that seeks to destroy you and all that you put your hand to, they will come to you with whispers in your mind, they will hint of discressions held against you by others, they will remind you of past defeats and arguments. They will even remind you of your childhood when you were bullied at school, when you felt unsafe and vulnerable and how some of your teachers even spoke harshly to you.
They will come and lie to you, for the enemy fears who you are in Christ Jesus, You are a highly trained warrior, you carry the weapons to defend the weak against the onslaught of satan and his hordes. They are weak and have No power against what you carry.
You my beloved are Called and Anointed with Kingdom Authority.
(NIV) Romans 8: 5-6
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
(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) Luke 4: 18
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
Beloved, I have watched you as you have grown and matured, as you have made decisions to forsake all others, to lay aside the things you care about, to lay aside your own desires, wants and even your own needs. I have stood as a proud Father knowing that you have made decisions that were right, but knowing too that they have been very costly to you. Not only in terms of your own comfort, but also the cost you have paid in laying down relationships with those that you have loved dearly.
My dear one, know that I am proud of you, that I love you and that I care. I lift your face to my face and I kiss away your tears and I hold you close to me. I surround you with my love and I spread my cloak around you. I am jealous for you, I am jealous for your heart, I am jealous for all of you. You are mine!
(NIV) Song of Songs 8:6-7
Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
Choose this day whom you will follow!
Beloved, this is a time to stop wavering between two opinions. Too long you have sat on the fence, trying to decide if serving Me wholeheartedly will bring you loss. I only have the best in mind for you. I am not hard or harsh, even though some have made Me out to be. I love you with all I have. I gave My Son for you. Do not come out of fear of judgement and punishment, but rather knowing that of a love sick Father longing for His children to come home. My arms are open wide, waiting to run to you and embrace you.
Choose Me above all others!
(NIV) Mark 12:30
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
(NIV) Luke 15:20b
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
(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!
5/7/16 House Building
I have anointed you to carry supernatural strength and ability in all that you do and say. Do not hold back when there is a need in your family, community and even church. You are all in the construction business. Come let us build the Kingdom together.
What does the house look like that you are building? That I may come and dwell in with you. Is it large and roomy, comfy and clean or small but beautifully put together? Does it have a white picket fence and a garden filled with flowers of every shape and size, with the air infused with perfume?
I live in you and you my family construct where we will dwell together. Are you a good builder? Do you take time over the construction and even the blue prints of our home? The detail is in the small things, prayer, love, hope, the living word, faith, joy, peace, and repentance. These things are what cements brick to brick and slowly but steadily a home will begin to be revealed in all its glory, fit for a family birthed in Fire.
(NIV) Ephesians 2: 20-22
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
(NIV) Luke 6: 47-49
As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 3: 12-14
If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.
4/7/16 My Vessels
I am awakening in you my sons and daughters, a hunger for dreams of past plans and hearts desires that did not come to pass. Now is the time for what seemed to pass by, to come to fruition and for ministries to rise, into the perfect plan and timing of Kingdom Glory.
Step out in confidence, as I have brought you through this season of transition, where you have learned how to flow in my spirit, and speak freely what is being released through you as my vessels.
Watch as the world begins to take notice, as each of you move freely by my Spirit, as signs and wonders make them stand in awe of your heavenly Father.
(NIV) Hebrews 11: 39-40
These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
(NIV) Luke 12: 11-12
“When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”
(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.
A row of people stood and with their palms out and facing upwards towards the heavens, waiting to receive. Upon each palm a clear bowl appeared, not very big, not very heavy; it contained a small amount of earth. Upon the other outstretched palm a small seed stood. They took the seed, place it within the bowl and pressed it down beneath the earth.
My friends “I will fill this seed with My Glory “
Each took their bowls away; they looked after them, attended to their needs, prayed over them, cried over them, until one day they were ready to be shown to the entire world.
The first bowl that was seen had a fully grown English Oak tree, full of branches, strong, tall but that’s not possible in a small bowl?
The second bowl had a forest grown out of it fully grown; you could hear the wind whisper through the tree tops, but that’s not possible in a small bowl?
Each bowl carried something different from each other but all had something that was, not possible in a small bowl.
“I AM going to make what is not possible, NORMAL “.
(NIV) Luke 8: 15
But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
(NIV) Mark 4: 19-21
but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”
(NIV) Mark 10: 27
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
