30/6/15 A Product
I am not a product of man, that he can use me to sell his books and merchandise. I am Jesus the living word, I am eternal, I am triumphant, I am every breath you take, I am all things, I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
Man has tried to make me into a product that he can manipulate and sell, religion has taken my name and created abomination after abomination, are you no better than the money lenders that I chased out of my father’s house.
My father’s house is a place of prayer, where my bride is being made ready for my arrival, she carries the very aroma of heaven, her beauty is such that none can compare. Her tenderness for the broken is known all over this earth, for she holds them up and pours my love over all their wounds.
My perfect, spotless, bride, “I come for you”.
(NIV) John 2: 14-16
In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”
(NIV) Revelation 22: 12-14
“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.
(NIV) Song of Songs 4: 9-11
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.
Awake! Awake! Rise up! Do not settle for conformity or comfortability! Kick them off. Do not settle for the mediocre. Church arise! Everyone who names My name, Awake, Arise!
I would have you ready to respond to My battle cry. To move with spontaneity and vitality, to fully enter the battle. I am looking for men and women, who in spite of the enemy tactics, will say, “we will go up against them, for surely God, has given them into our hands”. Those who know the exploits of their God. Who trust and know that I have already won the battle and the enemy is a defeated foe. Death and hell have been overcome, no longer do they hold any claim on those who belong to Me.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15:54b-58
‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’
‘Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?’
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.
(NIV) Revelation 17:14
They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings – and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.
Sons and daughters light up the sky with your praise, sing it aloud, never let it cease. Let all the heavens know how great is your God, how marvellous are My deeds, how wonderful are the works of My hands. For surely if you do not praise Me, I will raise up the rocks and stones to sing aloud. Even the trees will clap their hands in worship of Me and the mountains and the hills will burst into song.
Come dance, come shout, come paint, come and bring all that you are and all that you have, in worship to me. Come abandon yourself before me. Release your songs, release all your creativity to Me. I am worthy of all praise.
The heavens declare My glory, and the skies proclaim the work of My hands. Watch as the skies are filled with fire as the sun sets. Look and see, and know that I AM God. Bring honour and glory to My name. May your praises never cease.
(NIV) Luke 19:37-40
When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
(NIV) Isaiah 55:12
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.
25/6/15 Climb Down
Climb down off your pedestal and see the world as I see it. I am on my knees, washing the feet of my family. My eyes look up from this position and I see their need to be loved, and set free. It is difficult to see these things when you are looking down from a high and lofty place.
You my church are my eyes and my ears, my feet and hands. You carry the basin of water, and the cloth for cleaning away the dirt of a hard journey. The towel to dry the aching feet of many nations, sits upon your legs, and yes, you can feel the weight of this calling.
(NIV) John 13: 3-17
Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
“Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
24/6/15 Servant Leaders
You have been in a season of hiddenness, a place where you have had the time to grow in relationship with me and the Holy Spirit. You have received deep revelation and healing during this season of rest and recovery.
I call you my leaders to rise as servants, to lead my people from a heart of integrity and honour. You will be my light that many will follow, fully trained and anointed, wear your leadership mantels with humility.
Each of you carries a deep love, which has been birthed from the relationship of our two hearts coming together as one. You are a reflection of me.
(NIV) Colossians 1: 25-27
I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness— the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. 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.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 13: 11-13
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
23/6/15 Come to Me
Beloved, I would call you out, out of those comfortable places where you have stopped and said, “This far and no further”. Many of you have been battle weary, trying so hard, to follow what you believed I had asked of you. I have watched your uphill struggles, your striving and your endless driving forward and yet, everything felt outside of your reach.
O My Dear One, I never called you to take on the world in that way. I called you to come to Me, to find My peace and My rest. Out of that place, I would have you go forward and to lay claim to all that is there. Come to Me. Get away with Me, let me show you how to do what I have asked of you. I desire you to know what it is to live light and free.
(MSG) Matthew 11:28-30
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
(NIV) Psalm 34:8-11
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
22/6/15 I AM coming soon
My beloved and beautiful bride, the wedding guests are arriving. They are taking up their seats as the feast is being laid out in front of them, the table groans with the weight. There are many guests from every tribe and nation.
Hear the sound of the musicians, as they prepare the music for the dance of the bridegroom and his bride. We wait with expectancy, for time is in my hands.
The signs are in the heavens, the wonders are a daily happening. Miracles are reported openly in the news of many nations, these will increase daily.
Are you hungry? Come join me at my wedding feast, there is still room.
(NIV) Revelation 19: 6-10
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.”
Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”
At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
19/6/15 Break Out
There are many who are allowing their lights to dim. Their focus is upon the news around this world, and all the fear and hate being released upon nation after nation. If you view only negative you will become negative.
Break out from the mindset that you are weak and can do nothing, for you can do all things through me as I strengthen you.
Lift up your eyes and seek my face, for I am the answer to every problem. I bring light into all darkness. Ask Holy Spirit to fill you with the oil of Joy. Face every situation in the full knowledge that it has already been defeated, and you have the higher ground.
Let your light shine before men, for each of you are a beacon. You will draw the lonely, the rejected, the fearful, the unloved, and the hopeless. You will, in my name, bring them to the throne of grace, where their light will be set free. The darkness will recede from the nations as our lights join together as one family under God.
(NIV) Philippians 4: 12-13
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
(NIV) Hebrews 1: 8-10
But about the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.”
He also says,
“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4: 5-7
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
18/6/15 Shaken but not broken
My Beloved, many shakings have been going on in your life.It has seemed that at times you have almost lost your faith in me, wondering where I am in the midst of all your pain and grief. You have tried to cling to all the things that have brought you comfort, and to all the familiar places. However,you have found that those things have not brought you what you wanted, and indeed, have left you feeling more and more unsatisfied and empty.
Now is the time to turn your attention fully to Me. I am awakening on the inside of you, such a level of faith, desire and passion as you chase after Me. You will find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart. I am coming with such grace and mercy to cover your life. Everything else will fade into the background. I will restore your first love, your heart will awaken to My voice and to My heart. You will turn and you will lead others to that place of knowing Me fully. Your adventure has just started, no matter what age you are, there is so much more in Me!
(NIV) Psalm 51:10-13
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you.
(NIV) Hosea 14:4a
I will heal their waywardness
and love them freely,
17/6/15 Wisdom Speaks
Hear my voice in the night hours. Open your spiritual ears to hear the wisdom for “such a time as this”. I call out to my intercessors, to my prayer warriors and to those hungry for my kingdom culture to be fully released upon this earth.
Know that wisdom for each and every situation that comes around my family has been released to you, for as you ask in prayer in my name, it is immediately sent. Now receive your answers and walk in them, fully assured that each of you carry my authority to build and complete, the very blueprints that were released to you from the throne room of the living God.
Be bold in your walk, do not hold back, reach out a hand of friendship to the lost, and watch as the harvest comes home, for each of these have their names written in the book of life.
(NIV) Proverbs 2: 1-8
My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
(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.
16/6/15 Just You!
Beloved, I have created you to be so different and unique from everyone around you. There are no two alike. I love diversity. I love to bring colour to places that you haven’t even seen. Just take a look into the heavens, hear the sounds that are even now coming forth from the stars that are millions of miles away. Look at the bottom of the oceans, even to the darkest recesses and you will find my diversity and my colour. Why then would I not choose to make you exceptional? I saw you and formed you, even before you were created in your mother’s womb. All your days were written in my book.
Beloved, you look at yourself and see something marred and defective, but I look and see my most beautiful one, perfectly crafted and prepared, a vessel fit for purpose. Even the scars you bear, the ones that go deep allow my light and my glory to shine out of you. Those battle scars have become places of life and refuge for those around you. Look and see with my eyes and know that you are loved and highly valuable.
(NIV) Genesis 1:31a
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
(NIV) Psalm 139:13-18
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.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
Beloved, every time you encounter the enemy, do not merely rush ahead to meet him head on. Stop, draw back into Me, quiet yourself and ask what I would have you do. There are many ways to defeat the enemy but, if you keep doing the “same old, same old”, very soon the enemy will change his tactics. He will know exactly what and how you are going to react and he will be ready to catch you off guard. That is why it is important to enquire of Me, so that I might show you how to trip him up and how to catch him in the traps that he has laid down for you.
I take great delight when you come and ask me, for I love to converse with you on this subject, for I know what he is planning, and My plans and My ways are higher than his.
(NIV) 1 Chronicles 14:8-16
When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, they went up in full force to search for him, but David heard about it and went out to meet them. Now the Philistines had come and raided the Valley of Rephaim; so David inquired of God: “Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hands?”
The Lord answered him, “Go, I will deliver them into your hands.”
So David and his men went up to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, “As waters break out, God has broken out against my enemies by my hand.” So that place was called Baal Perazim. The Philistines had abandoned their gods there, and David gave orders to burn them in the fire.
Once more the Philistines raided the valley; so David inquired of God again, and God answered him, “Do not go directly after them, but circle around them and attack them in front of the poplar trees. As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move out to battle, because that will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.” So David did as God commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army, all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
12/6/15 The Elect
You are the elect, called from the very beginning of time, trained and filled with the power of Holy Spirit, anointed and released. You my beautiful one carry my kingdom in your heart, it is birthed in love and hope. Each day as you rise up and meet me in your worship and prayer, my living waters are poured into every part of you, inside and out, so that you are always overflowing, and hungry to release my promises into every life around you.
I am coming for my elect, you will see at the appointed time my sign in the heavens, and I will send my angels to gather the elect and call them home, know that I am always with you, for we are one.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 28-29
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”
(NIV) Matthew 24: 30-31
“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
This is a time when the caps are coming off. Those ancient wells are being re-opened in ways that will bring refreshing and revival. First to you, then to those around you. You have a part to play in pressing into all I want you to have. Do not hold back, PUSH with all your strength as one giving birth. Have I not called you and will I not fulfil that which I have promised? Watch as the generational blessings chase you down and you see this nation rising to the full extent of My purpose and calling. I have not finished with you yet, nor have I finished with this nation. I am calling forth all those who hear My voice to arise and press in like never before. Do not set your heart to see the structures of the past arising, this is a new wine skin and cannot look the same. So allow Me to show you the new and teach you to flow in tune with My Spirit and see the wellsprings gush forth with fresh clean water.
(NIV) Isaiah 43:16-21
This is what the Lord says—
he who made a way through the sea,
a path through the mighty waters,
who drew out the chariots and horses,
the army and reinforcements together,
and they lay there, never to rise again,
extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
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.
The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
(NIV) Luke 2:22
And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”
10/6/15 God’s generals
I speak to you today. You are My generals. I am sending you into battle to direct and co-ordinate My warfare. First, come and spend time hearing and getting to know My plans. Do not run ahead but also don’t be slow in carrying out the commands I am giving you. Watch how I place My troops and remember that I have battalions of angels who are also fighting alongside you. Remember too that a general does not fight alone, he must work with all those around him, knowing the strengths and weaknesses of those closest. Learn to rely and trust others to carry out their orders. Stay true to the orders that I have given you and trust in The Supreme Commander, My Son Jesus.
(NIV) Joshua 5:13-15
Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”
“Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”
The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.
(Msg) Matthew 23:10
There is only one Life-Leader for you and them—Christ.
Beloved, I’ve watched you many times as you have taken a bite of my word, but it contains no real meat. You’ve tried to fill up with all the frills and spills around you, but have missed the very best that I want you to have. You have learned to drink My milk but have been slow in learning how to chew the meat of the word.
Stop now and take time to meditate, to chew over all I have given you and then you will have food to feed yourself and others, even in times of extreme famine. It will also stop you from being pulled away by every whim of doctrine, being tossed to and fro and led into deceit by others.
(NIV) Hebrews 5:11-14
We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
(NIV) Joshua 1:8
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
(NIV) Matthew 24:24-25
For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you in advance.
(NIV) Ephesians 4:14
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.
8/6/15 Many Voices
There are many voices shouting aloud in this world, trying to capture the ear of anyone who will listen. Protect your ears my family for the ancient enemy is on the prowl and hungry to devour whoever he can find.
He now talks about aliens and tricks in the heavens, space dust and comets, atmospheric happenings. These are his ways to detract the world from seeing the true reason for what is being released in the heavens above the whole earth and in the earth, for the very pillars will be shaken and the signs in the heavens, declares the very word I left with you.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
(NIV) (Acts 2:18-20)
These many voices will increase in number. Even some of the elect will be caught up by the intelligent arguments of the world religions, governments, kings, queens and especially church leaders.
Be bold my family and be the voice in the wilderness and cry out, “prepare ye the way of the Lord” for I AM the salvation for all.
(NIV) Revelation 7: 9-11
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.”
All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
5/6/15 Sheep with Teeth
I am the Lamb of the living God. I came to bring peace and love to all mankind. My death and resurrection opened the door, for a new way forward as sons and daughters, co-heirs with all that my Father has released into my hands. You my friends, my family are the sheep of my pasture and I AM your shepherd.
I have called you my sheep, but each one of you are lions, called to release your roar of authority, to stand up for those who are being abused, used, lied to and robbed of their right to believe in my Fathers’ Kingdom.
A lion knows every inch of his territory and will defend it. I say to you through prayer and outreach, bring in the lost sheep to my pen.
Bring them home.
(NIV) John 10: 15-17
Just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again.
4/6/15 Dream Whispers
Yes, you have been hearing the whispers of the Holy Spirit in your dreams. He is teaching you and leading you, to look deeper into the revelation and visions that are being released to you nightly. Open your spiritual ears to hear, for you are a fore runner, called and anointed to reveal the battle strategies for a world at war with itself.
The enemy comes as a thief in the night, to destroy and steal all that is good and fruitful in the lives of my church. He tries to bring darkness and shadow around you, so that you will be hoodwinked, and then you will follow his false light. For there are many among even the elect, that will be fooled by those, who look like them, but are in fact, the servants of perdition.
Keep my light of salvation in your heart fully stoked and burning bright, so that there is no place for the shadows of deceit to hide. Light up this world with your worship, from early morn to end of day. Sing, dance and laugh for you my beloved are not of this world.
(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 12: 49-51
“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.
3/6/15 Awake, awake!
Awake, rise up and clothe yourself with My strength. Shake off all that has been holding you in bondage. Cut off the shackles of yesterday and realise that these things no longer hold you in bondage. This is a day to free yourself from those words of judgement that others have spoken over your life, even those to whom you looked as mentors and friends. You have only one Lord and master and his name is Jesus. It is Him who directs and guides your path, look to Him and Him only, let no other become an idol or saviour in your life. Arise from your place of mourning and grief shake off the regrets and fix your eyes fully on Jesus and watch as He brings life into all you do.
(NIV) Isaiah 52:1-3
Awake, awake, Zion,
clothe yourself with strength!
Put on your garments of splendor,
Jerusalem, the holy city.
The uncircumcised and defiled
will not enter you again.
Shake off your dust;
rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem.
Free yourself from the chains on your neck,
Daughter Zion, now a captive.
For this is what the Lord says:
“You were sold for nothing,
and without money you will be redeemed.”
(NIV) Ephesians 4:4-6
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.
2/6/15 Even though
Beloved, I have taken hold of your hand and it is I who bestow a title of honour upon you. Do not run after those things that will build your ego and leave you puffed up with pride. Realise and acknowledge that it is My hand that is on you. It is My good will and pleasure to see you raised up into those places. You have done nothing of and by yourself to achieve success. It is I, who has prepared the way before you and opened the doors that you have walked through. Turn now and give glory where glory is appropriate, do not hold back your worship, be grateful and give the honour where the honour is due. As you do this you will see even greater doors of favour open up to you!
I summon you by name
and bestow on you a title of honor,
though you do not acknowledge me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.
1/6/15 Kingdom Work
There is no unemployment in the kingdom of Heaven. Each one of my brothers and sisters have been anointed, trained and released to move into every nation in this world, to pour out all the gifts and talents that each of them carry.
When you come into the full knowledge of salvation and the Holy Spirit comes and lives within you, begin to reach out and use the new anointing’s that have come upon your life. You are fully employed into Kingdom purposes from the day of your salvation.
Today, start to use all that you have authority in, from the youngest to the oldest. As we move into this season of quickening, you will see a greater harvest in all the works that you put your hands to.
(NIV) Acts 2: 17-21
“‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
