1/3/18 Value

If you do not value yourself my friend, how can you value all that I have placed within you?

Go out and sell everything you own and give the proceeds to the destitute and poor and then come follow me. What price is too high for you?

I have given everything for you, including my life. Why? I see the full potential in you, physically and supernaturally. I know the path you will walk, and all who will be reconciled with me, through the words and miracles that will be so normal to you.

When you know the value of whom you carry in the core of your heart, there will be nothing that will stand in your way. Mammon will have no hold over you as you stretch out your hands and release what you carry freely, for as you received it, so will you give it.

(NIV) Hebrews 11: 25-27

He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible.

(NIV) Mark 10: 20-22

“Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

(NIV) Matthew 6: 24-34

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 5: 17-19

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

 

2/3/18 Time Out

Beloved, I am calling a time out on the busyness of your life. Just as a coach calls a time out in the middle of a game, to give instructions and redirection, so I am calling a time out on you.

My desire is to redirect you, in the forward motion of this season. The past has gone and can never be changed, so it is time to stop revisiting it. Let all the hurts, wounds, regrets and disappointments drop away.

Realise that you have learned much from this season. Understand that even what you consider to be mistakes are only “good learns”. Do not allow your past to dictate your future. You are far more than the sum of all your experiences, whether good or bad.

I am calling you to come and take fresh direction from Me. Your future will look different to what you expected or thought, for My hand is guiding you every step of the way. Trust My direction and guidance for your life and make the plays in the game just as I show you. You are Mine and I will lead you through.

(NIV) Hebrews 10: 19-25

Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

(NIV) James 4: 8a

Come near to God and he will come near to you.

(NIV) John 8: 12

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

(NIV) 2 Corinthians 5: 7

For we live by faith, not by sight.

(NIV) Psalm 119: 35

Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.

 

5/3/18 Fresh Eyes

For many of you, your eyes have become tired of what you see around you professing to be part of My Kingdom. For others, your eyes have seen too much, that you cannot measure it against the commandment to love one another as I have loved you.

Look again my beloved, as I am doing a new thing. Fresh vision is being released, as what was, is now coming into alignment, with this new day. What has been and is now tired, and of the old guard, is being washed clean. Fresh anointing is awakening in the hearts of the young.

Their vigour will bring a move that will be so fast flowing. Revival will be unleashed upon this nation. The waves of Holy Spirit refreshing will drive into the heartlands. And every city, town and village will see with fresh eyes as I restore their youth.

Whether you are mature in age or not, you will be like a young sapling as I open your eyes fully to my calling. As my revivalists you will go into the four corners of this nation, and nothing will stand in your way

Lift your eyes my beloved and look again at the beauty of My Masterpiece.

(NIV) John 13: 34-35

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

(NIV) Isaiah 40: 29-31

He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

(NIV) Isaiah 43: 18-20

“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 honour 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.

 

6/3/18 Friendship

You, my friends, hold my beating heart within your grasp. You are the carriers of grace and mercy to a world wrapped in its own sin. They take pride and honour in one another, as they give accolade after accolade for their own divisive schemes, of how to build their church, in their own image.

As your hearts beat with mine, there is a supernatural relationship that entwines you and I together. Love is the core of all that we do and say. I have known you from the beginning of all time, and will know you for eternity.

Let us not forget that we will continue to reach out and grasp, as many from the fires of hell as we can. We will not become engorged with the fat of the world’s sin, but will be as one calling in the desolate streets “The day of the Lord is near, Repent and be Saved”.

(NIV) 1 Peter 1: 21-23

Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

(NIV) John 15: 12-17

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.

(NIV) Acts 2: 37-39

When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

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. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

 

7/3/18 Water of Life

Come to My living water, let Me pour out upon you, that which satisfies the deepest longing of your heart. Do not be afraid to come, for I will never turn you away. You will drink deeply and go out satisfied and bathed in My glory. Just as Moses had to cover his face when he came down from Mount Sinai, because he shone with the glory of My presence, and the people knew that he had been with Me. So shall you shine with My glory, as you come and drink deep of My presence, and the people will know that you have been with Me.

Your faces will shine with such radiance, and light will exude from your very pores. Your eyes will be bright and full of hope and joy. You will encompass the very essence of who I AM to a dying and hopeless world. Love and kindness will flow. Dreams and hopes will be awakened, not only in your life, but in the lives of those you touch.

So come, come and drink deeply from My water of life!

(NIV) John 7: 37-39

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.”By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

(NIV) Exodus 34: 29-35

When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord. When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him, and he spoke to them. Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai.

When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil over his face. But whenever he entered the Lord’s presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, they saw that his face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the Lord.

(NIV) John 4: 7-15

When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

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.”

 

8/3/18 Tree of Life

Beloved, watch and see that I am fulfilling My word in your life. Know that I see every choice you make and I know the motives of your heart, when you choose. I know and see that you choose to delight yourself in, and to honour Me. I watch as you meditate on My word and do your best to be obedient and to carry it out. Do not beat yourself up nor allow the enemy to play his mind games with you. Realise that even as a child stumbles and falls while learning to walk, you simply pick them up and keep encouraging them to try and try again. I pick you up even in the midst of those things that you see as failures, and encourage you to try again. I know your motives even when others don’t and I will always encourage you to move forward.

Let go of your regrets, let go of your yesterdays, let go of your offences, let go of all that would hold you to the past. Yesterday has gone, you only have this moment to live in. Meditate on My word so that you may become a tree of life to many and bring My healing touch to chaotic lives.

(NIV) Psalm 1: 1-3

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers. …

(NIV) Revelation 22: 14

“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) Isaiah 43: 18-19

“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. …

(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. …

 

9/3/18 Tender Touch

I watched as the Lord reached down His hand into your broken and wounded heart. I watched as He called you to forgive, and not only release, but bless those who had hurt and persecuted you. As you did I watched as the tears flowed and the pain changed to peace. No more hurting, no more pain. You relaxed and allowed His presence to just flow over you and embrace you deeply.

Do you sense My breath, as I whisper close to your ear? Hear Me as My gentle words sink slowly and deeply into your heart. You are My beloved. I will never leave you or forsake you. My arms are encompassing all of you, as I tenderly touch and revive those places that have been closed off.

Come live again in Me.

(NIV) Psalm 34: 17-18

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the broken hearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

(NIV) Psalm 3: 3-4

But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.

(NIV) John 10: 10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

 

12/3/18 Hated and Despised

Everyone wants to be loved and highly thought of.

But if you come and follow me you will become hated and despised, for what you carry is a life changing anointing to every life you come into contact with.

You will watch as supernatural transformation, rises from within the hearts of those who meet me at the cross of salvation. As they repent and receive the fullness of forgiveness that I purchased with my blood and life, they will change before your eyes as death falls away from them. Eternal beings have no knowledge of death.

You are called to stand fully in the gap for my sheep, especially those who have wandered deep into the enemies’ territory. Do not be dismayed by the treatment you will receive at the hands of the establishment, or even what they will say and call you. They did the same to me.

Rise above the emotional response, and bring forgiveness, to their banqueting table, as I have laid out for them a feast of life giving opportunities, as you snatch them from the fires of hell.

(NIV) John 15: 18-25

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. But this is to fulfil what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’

(NIV) 2 Timothy 1: 9-10

He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Saviour, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

(NIV) Luke 15: 4-7

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

(NIV) 2 Timothy 2: 9-11

for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with him,
we will also live with him;

 

13/3/18 Toleration rather than Revelation

(NIV) Revelation 2: 19-21

I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.

Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling.

What do you now allow and tolerate, that you would never have allowed into your Christian walk, before?

I AM eternal and I have not changed and never will. My Living Word is the same today as it has always been, and My People will follow after Me.

They will wear a robe of righteousness. Truth and honour will be their watchwords. They will stand guard on the ramparts, and repel the invading hordes that are coming against My Bride. She will not be abused or manipulated by every whim, and desire of this world.

My Bride is the picture of virtue and innocence, and all who seek shelter within, will know My peace and protection, as we move ever forward to the last day.

Where all will stand, before My judgement seat.

(NIV) 1 John 4: 16-18

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the Day of Judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

(NIV) 1 Peter 4: 16-17

However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

(NIV) Isaiah 61: 10-11

I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.

 

14/3/18 Rejoice, Rejoice and again I say “Rejoice”

Worship is the river that will start as a trickle, but will become a raging torrent of supernatural power, as the Holy Spirit brings revelation and transformation to your songs, and your dance. Bring out your pens that have lain in the dark cupboards, and begin to write the new songs, supernatural songs that will turn a nation around.

Open your spiritual ears, and write the words spoken in a whisper into your hearts in the dead of night. Rise up and allow the poems of heaven, to take shape, upon the pages of the journal that lies beside your bed.

Open that guitar case and also bring out those dusty drums. Wash away the fear with my love and allow the rhythms of my heart beat, to once again flow through your fingers, as the melodies of heaven are released.

Teach those who have little skill, and they will become supernatural worship leaders, because the love and confidence that you honour them with, will become their benchmark for the generation to come.

Lift your voices and sense the deep reverberation upon and through the land. The new sound being released will test the structures of man, as the raging torrent of supernatural freedom in worship will bring fresh revelation, as to who has built upon ME and who has built upon the sand.

(NIV) Philippians 4: 4-5

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

(NIV) 1 Corinthians 12: 22-26

On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honourable we treat with special honour. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honour to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it.

(NIV) Matthew 7: 24-29

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

 

15/3/18 Emotion the Life Line to Healing

My family, I have placed within your being, emotions. These can be revealed through laughter, joy, love, anger, frustration, loss, abuse and especially through betrayal of a loved one or friend.

Emotions are your friends, they were created to form an avenue for you to walk through the different stages of healing, until you come to the place of completion, and I hear you ask “what is that?” Complete Forgiveness for the person or persons who wounded you so deeply.

Forgiveness sets you free.

Pain can transform into a spiritual attack on every part of your life, for some, pain will go inwards and will reveal in your body as sickness. It will affect your family and especially, your relationship with me. The enemy seeks to find any way to bring his lies into your mind, and the open doorway of unforgiveness invites him in, and he will set up a battle front in every thought you have, and he will play with your emotions as one playing a harp.

Kingdom emotions are God given and are righteous. They allow the healing of mind and spirit to come together, after you have worked through the emotions to bring transformation from wounding to complete healing.

Continue to speak to me daily in prayer and let us dance together in worship. Watch as we work through each emotion together, and begin to sense your spirit jump within you, as the pain and hurt falls away from you.

Forgive and be set Free.

(NIV) Ephesians 4: 20-32

That, however, is not the way of life you learned when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body. “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

(NIV) Colossians 3: 12-14

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

 

16/3/18 Global Restructuring

The church created by the hands of man, is in the throes of restructuring, as it commands and demands its place within the business and market place around the globe. The one thing that they have removed in their restructuring is ME, and all Kingdom Authority has been usurped into their own headship and blueprints of a one world order.

Heads-up, my family, for you are on their shopping list for global dominion. When they come to you with their knowledge and understanding, they will sell to you a corrupted kingdom, based upon their whims and desires, and will wrap it in false love and humility. You my family will see right through these smoke screens even to the very heart of their plans.

I will give you a deeper spiritual discernment and fresh revelation as my Bride.

Some of you will even begin to meet in homes across the globe, and dine together with the breaking of bread at every meal, and you will share parables with all who sit at your banquet. You will make the market places your pulpits and my Living Word will not be diluted to fit the needs of a sinful world.

(NIV) 2 Timothy 4: 1-5

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

(NIV) 1 Corinthians 2: 1-16

And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—

these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgements about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgements, for,

“Who has known the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”

But we have the mind of Christ.

 

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body. “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

(NIV) Colossians 3: 12-14

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

 

19/3/18 Tears of Injustice

Do you find yourself able to cry easily my friend? Have the hot salty tears become ever present, day and night. Your heart rendering sobbing, shaking you to the very core of your being, as there seems no way to find peace or consolation.

The wound has been so open for so long that is it tender to the touch. The river of tears has become a friend, and yet, you do find release, but never the answer.

Come lean into me and allow me to put my arm around your shoulders, let me pull you closer, as you sense the heat of my love for you. I will wipe away every tear and injustice that has been perpetrated in your life.

Your tears will slow and then stop, as I release fresh vision before your eyes. See I will do a New Thing that will bring the rumble of thunder across this Nation, as you rise up from the place of injustice and embrace the Fire of Revival. Heads will turn and say “Who is this that “Roars” across the land? Is this not the one we left broken at the side of the road”?

I AM sending out the foolish, the weak and the despised, for they will lead MY Family Home.

(NIV) Isaiah 25: 7-9

On this mountain he will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove his people’s disgrace
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
In that day they will say,
“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”

(NIV) Job 34: 1-4

“At this my heart pounds
and leaps from its place.
Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice,
to the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven
and sends it to the ends of the earth.
After that comes the sound of his roar;
he thunders with his majestic voice.
When his voice resounds,
he holds nothing back.

(NIV) 1 Corinthians 1: 26-31

Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

 

20/3/18 River rapids

I watched as a raft was being manoeuvred down the rapids.

At first the crew got in while the water was calm, each was dressed in a life jacket, hat and of course each carried a paddle. Some were new to the sport while others were seasoned. They started from the calm waters and soon encountered the faster flowing aspects of the river. Those who were seasoned instructed those who were new. They were told when to paddle and when to stop. As they moved down the water they moved into the fast flowing rapids, amidst the rocks. Those who were new, listened intently to the instructions. I watched as their expressions went from fear to exhilaration as they tackled rapid after rapid. The raft eventually came down to a slower moving part of the river, where they landed and rested. The whole flow of their journey was of a forward motion, not once did they try to turn back, and only looked back to celebrate overcoming the obstacles.

Beloved, many of you have just started the journey, others of you are experienced and know what to do. Help those who are newer to this journey, help them to realise that it is as a team, united together in pursuit of the same goals. The expansion of My Kingdom on earth. You need and require each other, as you move together fully relying on Me, you will all come safely to that place of rest. Your emotions will have roller-coasted from fear, doubt and uncertainty to exhilaration, relief and joy at overcoming the obstacles.

I would remind you that for the joy set before Him, Jesus endured the cross so that He might become the first born among many, which now you are. Set your faces like flint. Keep moving forward, do not turn back.

(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.

(NIV) Romans 8: 28-30

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

(NIV) Acts 20: 22-24

“And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

 

21/3/18 Forsaken?

I have not forsaken you, you have said “The Lord has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.” I have NOT, norever will. When you come to Me I will never drive you away. My arms are always open wide. Even when you are in need of correction, I will bring it without condemnation.

I sing over you and I delight in you. I see your heart when others do not. I understand your motives. Even now I am drawing you closer to Me. Even though it feels like your mother and father have forsaken you, I receive you as My own, set apart and part of My family. Do not look to others for your fulfilment, look only to Me and know that I have a plan and purpose for you. Your times are in My hands and I am the master potter, moulding, shaping and creating the very best you in the middle of every circumstance. I see you and I love you. I know who you are. You are mine for all eternity.

Psalm 27: 7-12

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Saviour.
Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.

Isaiah 49: 14-16

But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
the Lord has forgotten me.”
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.

John 6: 35-40

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.”

 

22/3/18 “Once more into the breach”

Beloved, I know that you are weary from the battle. Your hands are tired, they hang limp. Your legs do not want to move one more step.

Come aside and let Me revive you, let Me deal gently and tenderly with you. Let Me heal your wounded heart. You will forgive as I forgive. You will release those who have hurt you. Not only the ability to forgive, but you will release blessing to those who have cursed you.

As you arise from that place, you will “once more enter the breach”. You will try again, and where you have failed in the past, you will find that the new strategies that I am giving you will lead you through to victory. So do not allow the enemy of your soul to discourage you and do not give up. You are mine and I have already won the war.

Galatians 6: 9

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Isaiah 35: 3-4

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.”

Isaiah 43: 1-3a

But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour;

 

23/3/18 Your move

I watched as a chess game unfolded, it was already well under way. It seemed like each opponent knew exactly what move would come up next. They clicked the time clock beside them on each move. Then, all of a sudden, I watched as one of the players started to hesitate about the next move. It seemed they had lost their way. Uncertainty crossed their face and consternation was clearly seen in their expression. All I heard was “it’s your move”.

The Father would say to you today, “it’s your move”. You have the ability to choose to take the next step. Do not waiver between two opinions. Step out and do what He is asking of you. You will be surprised at the results as you make that move. Step out with boldness, He has you in the palm of His hands. His light will show the way. Only do not dither, but go!

(NIV) Joshua 24: 14-18

“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshipped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

Then the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods! It was the Lord our God himself who brought us and our parents up out of Egypt, from that land of slavery, and performed those great signs before our eyes. He protected us on our entire journey and among all the nations through which we travelled. And the Lord drove out before us all the nations, including the Amorites, who lived in the land. We too will serve the Lord, because he is our God.”

(NIV) Psalm 25: 12

Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.

(NIV) Psalm 56: 13

For you have delivered me from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.
