31/3/15 Be You
My sons and daughters, when others speak negative things to you and about you, do not allow these things to land and take root. You are not the sum of what others say you are. Everyone has an opinion about everything you say and do, but when you begin to accept their words, you my beloved will begin to transform into the curses released over you, for the tongue carries life and death to all. Let not the words of the natural steal from you who are supernatural, for the words over you are, yes and Amen.
I have created you to be you.
Open the book of life and read my words spoken over my family, you are filled with power and authority. You are unique. You are set free from every chain of bondage. Every curse sent against you will be turned into a blessing. You are loved and cared for, I walk beside you.
You, my beautiful one, are being made ready for the marriage feast.
(NIV) Acts 22: 14-15
“Then he said: ‘The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth. You will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard.
(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.
30/3/15 Create Room
Listen to the whispers in the wind, as my spirit quietly speaks into the very core of your being. Sense the quickening of this hour. My family do not hold back, allow the running forward to become an ease within your daily life.
Create room in all that you do for my plans and purposes, for each of you are being supernaturally awakened to see clearly the lies of the enemy, in and around you and your family’s lives.
I am releasing to you a mantle of joy and peace. There will be times when my peace beyond understanding will hold you up when all around you are falling, you will be the one who holds out your hand to lift many out of the pit.
(NIV) Romans 13: 11-14
And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.
27/3/15 Spiritual Shackles
When you hear me call your name, and I invite you into your spiritual place of freedom, through the Holy Spirit, I release you into abundant freedom, with nothing to hinder you, or stop you from moving into the fullness of the gifts released over you, and through you in my name.
I bring you to a deep pool of clear blue spiritual water, where you wash yourself. And as my living water is pouring over you, everything is washed away. You are anointed, called, spiritually alive and flowing in the electricity and power of Holy Spirit. As you walk away from the pool there are people waiting for you who have said, “Wow awesome you are changed but, you can now only do this one thing to fit in with our needs”. Then they place spiritual shackles upon your wrists, these are as real to you as the shackles that this world entrapped you in.
Break the spiritual shackles off yourselves and step into complete spiritual freedom, for you carry my authority through Holy Spirit to move in all the gifts.
(NIV) Galatians 5: 1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
(NIV) Titus 3: 4-6
But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Saviour,
What will it cost you to walk in my steps? Everything!
I want all of you, all your problems, all your issues, no matter how small even from the day to day running of your life. Every thought I want you to take captive, what you speak, how you speak, and when you speak. I want your confidence even your lack of confidence, for you will speak for me. I want your body, your hands, your feet, and your legs, for you will walk for me and you will open my word and read my scriptures to a lost generation.
I want your present, your past and all your future. I want your dreams, your family, and your hopes. I want every breath you take, every song you sing, and every song you write. I want your love, your compassion and even your laughter. I want your sadness, your grief and especially your pain.
I want all of you. I want everything.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
25/3/15 Lay it Down for a Season
There are many among you my friends, who are growing weary and tired, you have come through a long season of trial and tribulation. For a few this has taken several years, but character can take deep sifting, to expose to my light and even to yourself, the full ability that each of you carry. You use many gifts in your day to day ministry times, either in church, at home, with family and even in the grocery line.
Come sit at my feet and listen to what I have for you. Allow the exhaustion and weariness to flow away from you. Take the time to slow down and watch the wall of confusion and busyness crumble before your eyes. Eat my word, for the bread of life will fill you and sustain your body, soul and spirit.
Take a season and put away your gifts, they will still be there when you are whole and healthy. The needs that are around you will be met by those I have called to step in for you, allow them to lift your arms.
My friends step into your season of sabbatical rest.
(NIV) Luke 10: 38-42
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
(NIV) Hebrews 4: 8-10
For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.
24/3/15 Unshackle the Spirit
My sons and daughters, it is time to allow the shackles of doubt and fear to be shaken loose from your spiritual walk. Bring Holy Spirit into every part of your daily life. When you rise in the morning welcome him into the new day with you, invite him to join you for breakfast. As you leave for work he will ride or walk with you. In work, he will see and hear all that you do, he will help you in your daily tasks and conversations. He will bring wisdom and authority to the boardroom; he will make you look good. When you return home after a hard day’s work, he will bring a deep sense of peace as all frustration flows away. Invite him to enjoy your family time together, and watch as your family grows together in love, joy and peace.
Now release Holy Spirit to move freely through all that you are. Watch as he brings refreshing to you and those around you. As you step out and begin to trust him more and more, you will begin to move more freely in the spiritual gifts that you have received. It is only through faith and trust, will you understand the full potential of my calling on your life.
(NIV) Jude 1: 19-21
These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
(NIV) 2 Timothy 1: 13-14
What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
23/3/15 My Beautiful Bride
There are many who say that my church is tarnished and filled with shadow, even darkness. My beloved is covered with a mourning shroud, her face hidden behind a covering of shame that mankind has placed over my church.
This is a lie of satan himself, he has tried to hide the bride from the eyes of those seeking freedom and light. I lift this shroud of deceit from the face of my beautiful bride, and all her glory is revealed. There is nothing on, in or above this earth, that can steal, the beauty and love of my bride. Would I allow such a thing to happen? “No”.
My family hear me clearly, you my bride, are being made ready, prepared for my coming. Yes there are going to be challenges ahead but you carry all my authority into all that comes against you. The keys of the kingdom are in your hands. Allow the fragrance of heaven to wash over you as you walk the path set before you.
My beautiful bride, you are exquisite, a pearl among rocks. You cover the whole earth with your robes. You hold those who need to be comforted, you feed the hungry. You are my light to this dark world. You are the voice, of peace and reason to the angry and hateful. You are the path to my salvation. You are the voice for such a time as this.
You are my Bride.
(NIV) Song of Songs 4: 7-11
You are altogether beautiful, my darling;
there is no flaw in you.
Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,
come with me from Lebanon.
Descend from the crest of Amana,
from the top of Senir, the summit of Hermon,
from the lions’ dens
and the mountain haunts of leopards.
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.
20/3/15 Like a Child
Kick off your shoes and run barefoot upon the freshly mown lawn. Run through the grass pile, throw it in the air, and watch as it is picked up by the gentle flowing wind and blown all over you. As it settles back to earth, hear the giggles of laughter that erupt from your belly.
Come hold my hand as we jump in the puddles together. Let me see your smile as we make mud pies, and get covered with mud and grime. Let down your hair, and take off the gloomy expression. It is time to live again, stay out late, chase firebugs and watch as they light up the dark around you and make daisy chains while giggling with your friends.
Tell jokes, stories of great adventures, snuggle down and sleep the sleep of a child.
(NIV) Luke 18: 15-17
People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
(NIV) Philippians 4: 7-8
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
19/3/15 Climb Off
You have been created to run wild and free, with no hindrance to muzzle you or control you. I have removed the reins that pulled you to the left or to the right. I gave you free will to go and find the adventure that I have revealed before you. Open your eyes and see that it is good.
Many are trapped on the carousel of life. They climb up onto the beautiful painted horses that go round and round to the tune of the organ, up and down, round and round. Hear the laughter of those trapped on this hamster wheel, blinded to the never ending ride. It is fun for a while and then you get used to it and it becomes the norm in your life, around and around, up and down, never ending.
It takes effort to lift your leg and dismount. Climb off this wooden painted horse and step off this carousel of lies. Pull away the bit between your teeth that controls your direction. Watch as the reins fall away and the saddle of religion slips. Feel the wind of freedom once again, as the power in your muscles ripple with the anticipation of galloping, in the vast open plains with me, and the rest of the wild horses.
(NIV) James 3: 3
When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal.
(NIV) Isaiah 63: 12-14
who sent his glorious arm of power
to be at Moses’ right hand,
who divided the waters before them,
to gain for himself everlasting renown,
who led them through the depths?
Like a horse in open country,
they did not stumble;
like cattle that go down to the plain,
they were given rest by the Spirit of the Lord.
This is how you guided your people
to make for yourself a glorious name.
18/3/15 Dig Deeper
I give to you my sons and daughters a spade, this is for digging deeper. It is a new spade, unused and ready for the work it has been made for. Take your spade and start to dig, and keep on digging until you reach the deep root of unforgiveness. Dig it up until none of it remains. Pull it out of your life and build a large fire and burn it there. Never again will it be allowed to take hold in your heart and give you so much deep pain.
The place where it has been will be filled by my spirit and love. I will pour in peace and hope, no anger or strife will remain. I will even release to you new seeds to be planted in your life, that will bear good fruit, and you will become one of my choicest trees in the orchard of my heart.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 14-16
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son.
(NIV) Song of Songs 4: 13-16
Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates
with choice fruits,
with henna and nard,
nard and saffron,
calamus and cinnamon,
with every kind of incense tree,
with myrrh and aloes
and all the finest spices.
You are a garden fountain,
a well of flowing water
streaming down from Lebanon.
Awake, north wind,
and come, south wind!
Blow on my garden,
that its fragrance may spread everywhere.
Let my beloved come into his garden
and taste its choice fruits.
17/3/15 Living in Truth
Fix your eyes upon my truth in your life. I say “you, my family are awesome and wonderfully made” the enemy says you are weak, fearful and alone. I say “you are never alone, I walk beside you, I carry you through the storms”. The enemy says there is no way for you to beat this disease or that curse. I say “By my Stripes you are healed, for I paid the price for all your diseases and illnesses”. I also say “you will know my servants for they will lay hands on the sick and they will be healed and they will cast out demons in my name”.
The enemy will always try to tell you the opposite of what and who you are. In every situation in your life, he will try to bring dullness and hopelessness into every aspect of you and your family, your church, friends and especially your work places. He seeks to bring division and strife in every relationship. He is a thief and a liar. Do not listen to his subtle and persuasive lies.
Open your spiritual ears and hear the truth, you have eaten from the bread of life.
(NIV) John 6: 27-40
Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”
Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
So they asked him, “What sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
“Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”
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. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”
16/3/15 Flowing in Peace and Love
Your day can be very much like the might flowing river as the tide turns, and the sea floods into your tributaries. The speed of the incoming flow washes powerfully up and into your daily walk. As the water rises and the undercurrents take hold, it becomes harder and harder to stand your ground, as you are pushed to and fro by unseen forces. When it is at its full height, the power and speed of this flowing river takes control of all around it.
Then the tide turns, my beloved, and all that flows against you is slowly released back into the sea. The water levels drop and the ground that was lost, becomes evident as the peace returns to the flow of a meandering stream.
As you walk through this day my friends, when the rushing waters become too much for you, and you sense that you are unable to stand against the flow, take courage and wait upon me, for I will turn the tide and bring my perfect peace flowing into, and around your lives.
(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.
13/3/15 Washed in Prayer
Come with me into your prayer closet, lets us talk about everything, for I want to hear all that you do and say and where have you been? How many times did you laugh today? How many tears rolled down? Did you see your children? Did you run in the rain? Was your coffee time fun? Did your son pass his exams? Did you sleep in late? Is your boss nice? Where are you going for your holidays? Are your mum and dad feeling better? Is your sister still not talking to you? How is that ingrown toenail? Did you manage to clear that dandruff? What colour are you wearing to your friend’s wedding?
While you my family are talking to me, allow me to wash your feet with my living water. Allow me to cleanse away the grime and dirt of this day. As I hold your feet and dry them, allow me to pour my oil of joy over them.
What you may see as small and trivial in your life, I see as the most important conversation, for I want to sit with you and hear all about my friend.
(NIV) Ephesians 6: 18
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.
Let us celebrate together all that you have done, all that you are doing and are going to do in my name. You my beloved bride, my church, my family, each individual member of my body are my eyes and my ears, you carry my voice of authority, you speak out my truths, you carry my word to far and distant lands.
You my beloved are the exact representation of my love, when they look at you they see me looking back. You walk this world in my name and every stronghold will fall as you decree and declare over it.
Celebrate for you will know me for eternity and we will dance on the streets that are golden.
(NIV) 2 Chronicles 15: 14-15
They took an oath to the Lord with loud acclamation, with shouting and with trumpets and horns. All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn it wholeheartedly. They sought God eagerly, and he was found by them. So the Lord gave them rest on every side.
(NIV) Revelation 21: 21-27
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.
I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.
The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.
On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there.
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.
11/3/15 Hidden Light
Are you one, who has been kept back in the shadows? You carry a hunger in your heart for all things in my Kingdom. You are the one who makes the tea and gives out cake. Your knowledge of my Word is exemplary. You stand as a doorperson at the front of my church. You are the face they see as they come into my dwelling place. You are the one who cleans the sanctuary and polishes the silver. You are the one who lifts and places all the chairs. You are the Sunday school teachers, who hear the Sunday message through a speaker on the wall.
YOU are my Church, my beloved, my bride. I call you forward, step out of the shadow and show yourself in all your beauty, wrapped in a cloak of my light, for all to see.
(NIV) Isaiah 45: 3
I will give you hidden treasures,
riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
(NIV) Revelation 2: 17
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.
10/3/15 New Songs
Come wordsmiths, come singers, come musicians and begin to write the new songs that I have released to you. Open the blue-prints of your dreams, pour over the notes, the new sounds are being released from the very throne of the living king.
Pick up your instruments and play in faith, for my spirit will reveal to you the new cords. As the singers sing they will hear the angelic choir lift their voices, as each one moves to the beat of heaven itself.
Dancers, dance, move to the sound of fresh mountain rain. Sense the breath of my spirit as you glide in and out of the fields of mountain flowers of every colour, their fragrance filling all around you as you dance the dance of love.
Only true love will set my people apart, for “I AM LOVE”.
(NIV) Psalm 33: 1-5
Sing joyfully to the lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
For the word of the lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
The lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
(NIV) 1John 3: 23-24
And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
9/3/15 Church Time, Family Time.
The time is upon us my family, where the enemy has my church in his sights. He is coming to try and put division between brother and brother, sister and sister, brother and sister, sons and daughters against family. He brings confusion and the spirit of the world that will try to bring its shadow of death into the very heart of my church. They will bring a world view into the holy of holies and demand that you conform to the values of this sick and dying world. If not, you will be labelled as bigots and trouble makers, you will be called anti this and anti that, you will be branded as phobic to the world view of what is now the norm for a world in turmoil.
You my friends are called to come out from the mist of them, for each of you are called, anointed and filled by My Spirit. You carry my voice of authority. You are my lights in a darkening world, my beacons that will attract the moths of despair to the light of truth and freedom. You are the chain breakers, who carry the Sword of My word to destroy every stronghold of the enemy.
My intercessors, lift your voices and call in the answered prayers of generations past who called out for the awesome harvest of this time. It is time to move into the fields that are ripe for harvest, come my friends let us go down together, lift up your tools, we have a harvest to bring in.
(NIV) Psalm 23: 4
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
(NIV) Romans 11: 5-6
So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
(NIV) Revelation 14: 14-16
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.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
6/3/15 A beacon in the dark
As you are becoming more and more aware my friends, we are moving into a time of darkening over this world. The shadows are drawing closer together in many nations, and yet, where the night is dark, there are beacons rising. You can see them on the tops of the mountains, in the valleys, in every city, town and country. They shine stronger, their light penetrates even the deepest darkness that the enemy tries to engulf, this sick and struggling world in.
My beacons! My people are my light. They stand strong, pouring out the spiritual light of my heart. Their light cuts a path through the plans of the enemy, for what they try to do in hiddenness will be revealed. You my beloved will draw unto yourself the hungry and the lost, as moths to a flame. For you are created to burn with the desire of my heart, to pour out unquenchable love on all mankind.
(NIV) Galatians 5: 16-26So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
5/3/15 The well worn path
There have been seasons when your heart has ruled your head. My Spirit has come to you and said “Go this way, and yet you have walked the other”. Now your spiritual ears have opened and once again you are now hearing Me fully. The path before you is a well worn path, for I have walked it before you. As you continue to hear My still small voice your heart swells with delight, for you know that you know, that you know, it is now My voice that you follow. The days of the past, when you wandered aimlessly and followed every whim of your heart are at an end. You are called, anointed and set forth by My word, My voice, My command, My love and everywhere you place your feet, I will give you.
(NIV) Joshua 1:3a
Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you
(NIV) Isaiah 30:21
Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,
“This is the way, walk in it,”
Whenever you turn to the right hand
Or whenever you turn to the left.
Beloved, it is time to open your hand and allow me to remove from your life the things that are stopping you from moving forward. There are many things that are good that are present in your life but not all of them are the best that I have for you.
Are you willing to lay all your agendas down, all your plans and ideas and entrust yourself fully to me? As you are willing to surrender all, I will take you on a journey of such fulfilment and fascination, that it will be as a rollercoaster in my Spirit. There will be moments of expectation, excitement, anticipation and yes fear as you take risks, trusting me all the way. There will be such a sense of awe that you will simply step out in faith, knowing that I will fulfil my promises to you.
There is so much more ahead than behind. Will you surrender all to me?
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 1:18-22
But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not “Yes” and “No.” For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas and Timothy—was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
(NIV) Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
3/3/15 Time to remove the shackles
Beloved, it is time to fully release forgiveness to those who have hurt and offended you. Life is too short to live under that cloud. I am calling you to release them to me, no matter what anyone has done to you. It is not about freeing the perpetrators, but it is about your freedom in me. Don’t let a root of bitterness grow up and overflow into your life. Take the weapons I have given you and lay the axe to the very root of the issue and watch and see how I will transform those places of woundedness and pain in your life into places of fruitfulness. Your garden of weeds will turn into a pasture of summertime flowers, blowing in the wind of my Spirit.
(NIV) Matthew 6:14-15
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
(NIV) Matthew 18:35
“This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”
(NIV) Mark 11:25
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
2/3/15 Eyes to see, Ears to hear
Even now, says the Lord, I am opening your eyes to see clearly. I am applying My salve to your eyes that they may be healed and the veil that has been in place is being removed. From this moment forth, you will look at situations and circumstances from My viewpoint and no longer your own. I am rending the heavens that there would be a greater measure of My glory released upon the earth. Use your awakened sight to see what I am doing and to align yourself with My purposes.
In the same manner I am also opening your ears to hear clearly the message that I am proclaiming at this time. A call to holiness and purity for I am coming back for a pure and spotless bride. No longer will you listen to the world calling you to come and enjoy its’ pleasures and delights. Instead you will hear My pure and clear clarion call, even as the time of the last day draws close.
Arise now My Beloved and see and hear clearly!
(NIV) Revelation 19:6-9
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.”
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
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.”
(NIV) Isaiah 60:1-3
“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
