31/3/16 The Lie of the spirit of Rejection
There is an enemy who has a hunger to keep you trapped in the centre of his lies over your life, family, workplace and especially your Christian walk. He seeks to corner you in the place of rejection, where he will bombard you with every lie depicting what you cannot do, and how worthless your input is to your family and church life. His greatest weapon against you and every other believer is allowing his lies to penetrate the battlefield of your mind.
I did not say that your walk would be easy. People will despise you because you are my reflection upon this earth. What you carry in the core of your being, is a reminder to all who walk a path of darkness, for the light you emanate brings them to the full knowledge of their need of salvation.
The greatest lie of the spirit of rejection is that the world rejects you, and yet you are accepted and loved for eternity by Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The world rejects everything it does not understand, they cannot change me to look like them, so they create their own Idols from plaster and wood. Some even come in the form of flesh.
If you my family are rejected then rejoice, for they rejected me first. Let us stand together and cast out the spirit of rejection, as our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers.
(NIV) Romans 8: 1-8
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
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. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
(NIV) 1 Peter 4: 12-14
Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 6: 15-17
What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”
30/3/16 Water, water everywhere?
My people look for water everywhere, they run here, they run there and yet they are left thirsty and dry. You have dug for yourselves cisterns that cannot hold water. You have tried in vain to do, what only I can do for you.
Come to me today and let me pour my living water into you. Then you will no longer thirst, but will be filled with all the fullness, that I will cause to flow into you. Have I not promised and will I not do? I do not hold back anything good from you. Come and ask, seek and find, knock and the door will be opened. I long to pour over you my goodness, to reveal all that I have in my heart towards you. I have plans for good for your life. Do not look towards others or let them pull you away from me.
Know that I AM your Living Water!
(NIV) Jeremiah 2:13
My people have committed two sins:
They have forsaken me,
the spring of living water,
and have dug their own cisterns,
broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
(NIV) John 4:9-15
The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”
(NIV) John 7:37-38
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
29/3/16 Car Crash
There are many of my family who see themselves, trapped in the mangled wreckage, of a head on collision with another vehicle. Your own vehicle has become embedded into the other and your need is to have your vehicle removed from this entanglement and set free. Your vehicle can then be repaired and restored, this will involve the dents being hammered out and maybe even a respray but you will eventually be road worthy again and in charge of your own destination.
You know that, what you are involved in, has taken over all of you and your time. You have become so enmeshed in the control manipulation cycle that you have no thoughts of your own, every decision is made by someone else and you follow on like a robot.
Take heed and awaken from your slumber my precious one, it is time to be removed from this place of oppression. Yes it will be painful and demanding but you are safe in my arms. I will hold you in my embrace as we work together to heal your wounds and bring you again into the perfect light of my freedom. As we take back the ground of your mind, every thought will again be brought into captivity of my love. You will again stand tall and know your rightful place as a Son in the Kingdom of God.
(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) Galatians 5: 13-26
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
So 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.
28/3/16 Unsheath Your Sword
My warriors, unsheath your swords for the Great War is upon us. Every breath and every life will become a battle field. The enemy will fight us hand to hand for every soul and for every member of your families. He will be relentless in his pursuit to capture their eyes and thoughts and enslave all in his realm of darkness.
Lift your Swords high, let the enemy see the power and the light of your weapon of warfare and let him know that you, my family, have been trained in every aspect of supernatural warfare. Watch him and his generals step back in awe at the Living Army of the risen King.
Shout out with your voice for you my beloved carry the authority to command the armies to move forward into battle, in the full knowledge that this and every ensuing skirmish has already been won and my Kingdom will prevail for eternity.
(NIV) Isaiah 13: 3-4
I have commanded those I prepared for battle;
I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath—
those who rejoice in my triumph.
Listen, a noise on the mountains,
like that of a great multitude!
Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms,
like nations massing together!
The Lord Almighty is mustering
an army for war.
(NIV) 1Corinthians 15: 23-25
But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
Turn your ear to me. Listen and obey as my command over you and my church says, “GO”!
Move out of your concrete coffins and into the highways and byways, the market places and drugs dens. Do not continue to hide in your religious conclaves, as the few step out in my name.
You are ALL called by MY NAME. And as such, those who stand for justice and integrity will carry my Name of authority into the darkest of alleyways, where the very gutters will run with my living water and it will bring refreshing to these places where only death and pestilence was known before.
My light will shine in the midst of the condemned, as my church rises amongst those who know what they have been redeemed from and understand the gospel of reconciliation. My grace is sufficient for them.
(NIV) Revelation 7: 16-17
‘Never again will they hunger;
never again will they thirst.
The sun will not beat down on them,
nor any scorching heat.
For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
24/3/16 Governmental Changes
Watch as I am changing the guard in the governmental offices. There is a shaking and shifting that is happening in this land as I raise up my men and women of righteousness. I will expose those who would hide their wrong deeds and lies and will again establish my truth upon this nation.
As these things happen in the natural, watch as they are echoed in the spiritual. Many, even in my church, will be exposed for wrong motives and lies. Remember however, to pour out mercy and not judgement, reminding yourselves that you too can slip.
Watch as these changes will bring transformations in the spiritual atmospheres, opening portals into the heavenlies and bringing the lost home, especially those who have been wounded by friendly fire. Now is the time for change.
(NIV) Isaiah 9:6-7
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.
(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.
(NIV) Galatians 6:1
Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.
23/3/16 Strategic Warfare
Now is the time to stop focusing on the demonic. Too many of my people have become so obsessed with spiritual warfare where the negative has become the center of attention. It is time to shift your focus from pulling down the negative and to begin to call into place the positive.
Start to proclaim and decree my love, joy and peace into those difficult situations. Use my written and spoken word and watch what happens to the dark. Remember that even a little candle in the midst of a dark room will bring light. Now watch as my light which is brighter than the sun itself, dispels the darkness and the demonic. Where there has been death, speak life. Where there has been sorrow, speak joy. Where there has been illness, speak health. Where there is weakness, speak strength.
You carry my authority to bring life wherever you go. Use it to chase the darkness and bring life.
(NIV) Ephesians 6:12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
(NIV) Proverbs 18:21
The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.
(NIV) Isaiah 35:1-8
The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
the splendour of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the Lord,
the splendour of our God.
Strengthen the feeble hands,
steady the knees that give way;
say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
he will come to save you.”
Then will the eyes of the blind be opened
and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
Then will the lame leap like a deer,
and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness
and streams in the desert.
The burning sand will become a pool,
the thirsty ground bubbling springs.
In the haunts where jackals once lay,
grass and reeds and papyrus will grow.
And a highway will be there;
it will be called the Way of Holiness;
it will be for those who walk on that Way.
22/3/16 Fresh Vision
Have I not brought you through a time and season of intense training and warfare? You have seen all things being stripped back, especially in the eyes of everyone else. Even your reputation has been brought low. Yet now you find yourself at the cliff edge of new beginnings, not even sure as to what the future holds.
There are many right now who find themselves at this point, ready to jump, but uncertain and unsure if I am there waiting to catch them. Trust me and take that leap of faith. As you , watch as the mist parts and see that I am indeed there. Have I promised, and will I not fulfil? My promises are “Yes and Amen”. There is no shadow of turning in me. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. I am giving you fresh vision. Prepare yourself to see afresh and know that I AM!
(NIV) Habakkuk 2:2-3
Then the Lord replied:
“Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.
For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay.
(NIV) Isaiah 6:8
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
21/3/16 Mixing it up
Many of you have been waiting a long time for things to start in your life. You have put many things on hold saying when I get married, when I get a new job, when the children leave home then I will do what the Lord has said to me. But I say to you today is the day to start those many journeys. Do not hold back saying I’ll wait, for I am the one who will guide you and lead you.
The enemy would have you stay in those comfortable places, in apathy and lethargy, while I would call you out upon the waters. Many have been the questions that have held you. What will my husband/wife think, how will our children react, how will we get finances?
I know your hearts, you want to walk into the calling that I have placed over you. Now is the time for your faith and courage to be established in me. I am mixing things up in your life so that everything is feeling unsettled. Sense the growing pains and set out boldly in me.
(NIV) Isaiah 54:2-4
“Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide,
do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
strengthen your stakes.
For you will spread out to the right and to the left;
your descendants will dispossess nations
and settle in their desolate cities.
“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
(NIV) Philippians 3:12-14
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
18/3/16 Supernatural Pruning
My Father is the Gardener, when you prune the roses in the garden of life; you cut them back, at times severely, so that they will grow stronger and healthier. They will also produce a crop of flowers that will stand the attacks of the harsh and windy elements.
The pruning that you my family go through is very similar. By cutting away the things that surround your Christian walk that can cause disturbance and even stunt your growth, as a supernatural being is a work in progress. This is the job of the gardener in your spiritual walk, he wants to see you grow and develop the strength to withstand the attacks of the enemy.
As you slowly begin to reveal your beauty to the rising sun and your flower opens to the early morning dew. You will bring refreshing not only to yourself but to all who look upon your beauty that was created by the gardener and his pruning shears.
(NIV) John 15: 1-3
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
17/3/16 The Hurting! Hurt!
There are times when the depth of wounding in my family, is caused more by those around them than from those outside the church.
Be aware of the pain in the men and women, who stand in your pulpits every week. These little ones need prayer and affection. Each of them have a hard task to complete, they have to keep you and everyone else happy at the same time. This can be a thankless task, as the leaders can become the attention of all who dislike what they say or do. Every biblical quotation is earmarked for dissection and discussion. If it does not match up to expectations, then the leader or leaders are also dissected by the congregation.
Hear me those who have ears to hear. “Test every Spirit” and walk in love with one another. Pray for those in servant leadership around you, uphold them before the throne of grace. There are powers and principalities who would love to tear them down and bring deep wounding to them. My beloved bride, keep gossip away from your tongue, and challenge those who speak ill of others to prove what they are saying.
Keep good council.
(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.
(NIV) 1 Peter 3: 9-11
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. For,
“Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.
They must turn from evil and do good;
they must seek peace and pursue it.
(NIV) Psalm 111: 1-3
Praise the Lord.
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
16/3/16 Speak the truth in love
My church it is time to speak the truth in love to each other. But what does that look like?
It is reminding each other daily who I have created you to be. You are my sons and daughters, created perfectly in me. When I look at you, all I see is My Son, Jesus. No sin, no condemnation, only perfection because My Son is perfect.
You look at yourself and others and only see faults, failings and short comings. I see the finished work of the cross that makes you glorious. I see what you have already become, you do not. I call you higher. Believe in Me and know that your future is already certain.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.
(NIV) Ephesians 4:15
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
(NIV) 1 John 4:4
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
(NIV) 1 John 4:7-8
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
15/3/16 The Rising
My bride is being hidden behind a curtain of religious practises that bring chaos and misinterpretation of my living word. The Holy Spirit is pushed into the shadows, and only allowed to reveal his fire and power at special events. This gives rise to the eyes of the congregation being firmly directed to the abilities of those, who seek to build their own empires, rather than the Kingdom of the Living God.
I am bringing a revelation to my sons and daughters that the time is at hand, for the true church of my calling to rise out of the religious wasteland of the nations.
You know who you are, for you are already questioning and seeking my face through prayer and weeping. Day and night you come before the throne of grace, hungry to move into a deeper and deeper relationship with me, because you can only find a surface and superficial relationship based upon the religious presets of churches created in the image of man.
My face is always turned towards my family, seek me and you will find me, ask and it will be given, knock and the door will be opened.
(NIV) Jeremiah 7: 4-11
Do not trust in deceptive words and say, “This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord!” If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, if you do not oppress the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your ancestors for ever and ever. But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless.
“‘Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe”—safe to do all these detestable things? Has this house, which bears my Name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! declares the Lord.
(NIV) Matthew 7: 6-8
“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
14/3/16 Delete the Back Ups
Beloved, many of you are carrying old wounds from the past. Just like a computer you have made backups that can be easily accessed whenever you want to. You have allowed the enemy full access to these backups and he constantly replays them in your mind. Not only the memories, but the pain of these memories so that it is as real today as when you were first hurt.
I want to reformat your minds and hearts today, so that I can rewrite my message of love, hope and joy for your future moving forward. I do not want you to access these things any longer and so I am calling you out of these places where the wounds and scars have been. I wipe your minds clean of these things and declare new things to you today. I will cause you to stand in those places that caused wounding and release healing to others.
NOW is a new day! Arise to your fullness in me.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
11/3/16 Good Morning
You, my family, carry my unquenchable flame. Each of you is filled by the Holy Spirit and he pours a never ending stream of supernatural fuel, into the flame of fire buried within the core of your heart.
As you come before my throne in worship and praise, we dance together. I hold you in my embrace of love. Sense my closeness; feel my heart beat as our hearts beat as one. Know me as I know you.
Allow the pain of yesterday to flow away from you. Open again the door for my love to flow over every wound physical and spiritual. Be strengthened in my arms, for my joy is new every morning.
Good morning my beloved.
(NIV) Lamentations 3: 22-24
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
10/3/16 Mentoring servants
Be aware in your training and handling of my servant leaders. You have been called to be my representatives, in teaching the biblical truths of the life and character of New Testament Prophets and leaders. They need to be loved and cared for just like babies in arms, protected, encouraged and every one of their needs met by those who are called to guide them in their education of all things Spiritual, Supernatural and biblical.
Love as I love, and teach them the mysteries of my kingdom, you will watch these children grow, into the world changers, that each of them are called to be. Do not take from them the enthusiasm of salvation, allow them to grow into their supernatural calling and anointing.
Release them to run free without the shackles of religion tying them down. And then stand back and watch, as those you mentored and loved, bring a tidal wave of my outpouring upon this world. There will be times you will not know what to do with the abundance of salvations that will be flowing through your doors as my servant leader’s move through your towns and cities.
Now you will know what a church without walls truly looks like.
(NIV) Titus 2: 7-8
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
(NIV) 1Peter 4: 7-11
The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 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.
(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 2-3
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
9/3/16 Customer satisfaction
When you stand before my empty cross, and realise I have been resurrected, and that you can lead a resurrected lifestyle too. Just ask me to come in and build my throne upon your heart. The forgiveness of all sin known and unknown is completely wiped out of existence. You, my friend will walk away with a cloak of righteousness. Your life will be like a snow covered field, with no footprints in it.
You will receive the Holy Spirit and He will fill you with fire and power. He will also become your teacher in my living word and the gifts of the Spirit. You will become aware by supernatural revelation as to the anointing that you carry. You will be transformed, and daily, you will take on more and more likeness of my Kingdom heart.
As you step into complete freedom you will begin to make your spiritual footprint known to all who are around you. For the path you walk is the path of salvation, honour and courage. You will become my witness and lead many to the foot of the cross, where each of these can begin their journey.
(NIV) Acts 2: 38
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
(NIV) Matthew 3: 10-12
The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
8/3/16 Unprofitable Words
Why do you use so many unprofitable words? Words that promise a lot, but don’t actually mean what is said.
Beloved, it is time to let the words of your mouth match the intent of your heart. Let your “yes be yes” and your “no be no”. Do not promise by anything else, whether on the earth, sky or under the earth.
My people, I call you to set an example to all around you, that the words that you speak, carry only truth and vitality to all. Disrepute is brought to My name when my people lie and do not follow through on their words. Remember the tongue has the power of life and death.
Let the words you use show forth My grace and My mercy. Build up and do not tear down. Let your words bring refreshing and restoration to all around you.
(NIV) Proverbs 18:21
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
(NIV) Matthew 5:33 – 37
“Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfil to the Lord the vows you have made.’ But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
(NIV) Ephesians 4:25
Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body.
7/3/16 Party Time! Every Time
As you lay hands on the sick in my name, and they are miraculously healed. Have you been aware of the lack of celebration of my family for each and every healing? Has my healing grace become so normal in your midst that your kingdom awe has evaporated? Where are the Holy Spirit parties of celebration, for each and every miracle that is being released through my name and your hands?
A headache is not less than a cancer. A foot growing is not less than a constant pain. Raising the dead is not less than a brain tumour. Celebration after every healing is a reminder to those who are watching you. Each of you carry my name and my Kingdom Authority.
Do not let the world attitudes of, “you should not think so highly of yourselves” to creep into my church. I went to the cross for you so that you could think highly of yourself, for it is I am that is enthroned upon your heart. My family, you live a resurrected life, let us party together for every life that is touched, healed and changed.
(NIV) Luke 7: 15-17
The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said. “God has come to help his people.” This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.
(NIV) Psalm 150: 1-6
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
(NIV) Philippians 4: 4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 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. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
4/3/16 Don’t Give Up
No weapon formed against you will prosper.
When every muscle is in pain and you are weary to the bone, you can hear your tortured mind screaming at you from morn to night, just give up, everything will be easier if you just give in. Let the shadow and darkness flow around every negative thought. Lean back into the embrace of oblivion and care no more about anything. You have now embraced lucifer and you should be able to hear his manic laughter over you, another saint for the fires of hell.
My beloved, don’t give up! The devil is like a roaring lion seeking whomever he can devour. Do not allow him access to your thoughts, for he will twist them and bend them. He will reshape them from possibility into negativity, from hope to hopelessness. Build yourself up through my word and know that my hedge of protection surrounds you. The angels will carry you so that you will not stub your toe upon the rocks, which the enemy has tried to litter the path ahead of you with.
Depression and Oppression are his weapons of choice, each one a demonic spirit and each easily dispatched and cast out in my name. I release you and set you free my friend, from all darkness and creeping pestilence, from financial worry and lack of self-esteem. I lift you up, and I carry you in my arms, until you are again strong enough to stand.
(NIV) 1 Peter 5: 7-9
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
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.
(NIV) Ephesians 6: 10-13
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
3/3/16 Words of wisdom
On earth as it is in Heaven.
The standard of my leaders and church should reflect the standards of me and my Kingdom and yet, you accept a standard on earth that is not acceptable in heaven or in the Father’s presence.
There are many churches and faiths that want everyone to look like them. If you do not fit into their category of resemblance, then you are not acceptable or welcomed into their midst. So stand up and walk out into salvation in my name.
Seek out men and women of faith, who have humble hearts and who want to lift you up into your calling and anointing. They will hunger to see you go further than they ever will, and the name upon their lips will be mine and the Kingdom, of the one true living God `Yahweh`. Only here will you find your completeness and a home where you can belong. In my presence, you will find love and you will begin to reflect me.
Become my witnesses upon this earth, and when people from your past meet you, they will see my reflection emanating from your heart, and they too will come to know my saving grace.
(NIV) Matthew 6: 9-15
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
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) Isaiah 43: 11-13
I, even I, am the Lord,
and apart from me there is no saviour.
I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.
Yes, and from ancient days I am he.
No one can deliver out of my hand.
When I act, who can reverse it?”
(NIV) 1 Peter 5: 4-5
And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,
“God opposes the proud
but shows favor to the humble.”
2/3/16 Pretty Words
My word is powerful. It can change the direction of a nation.
As my leaders, speak with courage and honour, my word will release the people of my flock to move into their full calling. Allow my word to surround you and fill you completely, for as you speak in my name, the words that you release will have the power to change whatever situation you find yourself in.
There are many who stand in positions of authority that are happy to use pretty words that continually tickle the ears of the hearers, and yet there is no fruit present, or to be found in these places. Wake up and hear the truth!
My word is the living word, eat it, digest it and write it upon your heart.
(NIV) John 15: 4-6
Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.
(NIV) Jeremiah 1: 8-10
Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
1/3/16 Representatives of the Light of Christ
My friend, as one who represents my light in your journey and calling, how do you shine out to those in your circle of influence?
You are called to be my servants, who release my divine light into all darkness. You reflect the very core of my heart to a hurting world. Are you the one who brings peace into all arguments and finds the places for reconciliation? Do you speak loudly for those who have no power to defend themselves? Do you bring the voice of reason and kingdom understanding? When the enemy sees you does he turn and run away? For he knows there is no way he can defend himself against the purity of your heart, and the badge of honour, that is your kingdom calling.
I chose you from the very beginning of time, for I already knew you. I know every step you will take, as you walk closely with me. Your footsteps will walk in mine, as I walk out your journey before you. Have you looked and seen, that your foot fits perfectly, into my footprint as we journey together?
You are my voice calling in the wilderness, “prepare the way of the Lord”, this is amongst the lost and among the family of believers.
(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.
(NIV) Hebrews 1: 2-3
But in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
