29/5/15 I AM the Artist
My beautiful bride, you are a masterpiece created by my hand, each stroke of the brush coming directly from my heart and my undying love for you fills the colours of your canvas.
Many have come to study you, to try and find flaws within your makeup, but there is none to be found, for you my bride are perfect. Others want to gaze upon your magnificence and rule you for their own ends, shame on them for you have eyes only for the bridegroom.
You stand as an eternal reminder to all in darkness, that my light has come.
(NIV) Genesis 1: 26-28
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
(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.
28/5/15 Little by little
Beloved, do not be put off by the size of your circumstances and the situations you face today. Realise that it is as you put one foot in front of the other, that things will become manageable and easy.
How do you eat an elephant?
Answer – one bite at a time!
Remember what I did as I drove out the inhabitants of Canaan before my people Israel, I did it little by little allowing the Israelites to grow in stature and in number.
Beloved, even now you are growing into your full identity in me, and I am driving out the giants in your life and circumstances. Watch as I enlarge the place of your tent and stretch your curtains wide and you will see such growth and expansion, not only personally but in your surrounds.
(NIV) Exodus 23:29-30
But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals too numerous for you. Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land.
(NIV) Isaiah 54:1-2
“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.
27/5/15 My People My Kingdom
The enemy wants to silence your voice to keep you in a place of fear. Where he, and his servants can try to rule over all of mankind, with their perverted ideas becoming normal, in a society that has no hope for a better future. They pass their rules and demand conformity by all. They say my word should be rewritten to encompass their sins as righteousness.
There is no light in darkness and you may present yourself in any form, but you cannot become the light of salvation, for I AM Salvation.
Shout aloud my sons and Daughters and do not accept this hoodwink being pulled down over your eyes. You can only be blinded by your own choice, push on ahead for what is before you, the Glory of my Kingdom.
(NIV) Revelation 3: 7-13
“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
I send refreshing into your whole being, from the very core of your inmost parts to the outer ramparts. I call you to come to me in your prayers. As you lift your hands and worship, I will meet you in the air, and we will dance together my bride.
Wash yourself under my waterfalls of love. Feel the cleansing water filled with the power of healing washing away the pain and hurt of yesterday. Stay a while do not rush away, for I want your company. I want to talk with you, I want to dance with you, I want to be close to you, and I want to laugh with you. I want to sing songs of love and victory over your life.
I want to spend quality time with you, lets us walk together in the garden I have prepared for us.
(NIV) Psalm 42: 7-8
Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.
By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
(NIV) Song of Songs 5: 1-2a
I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride;
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice.
I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey;
I have drunk my wine and my milk.
Eat, friends, and drink;
drink your fill of love.
I slept but my heart was awake.
Listen! My beloved is knocking:
25/5/15 Fresh Eyes
We are moving into a time of deeper training, for the battle lines are drawn, and the blue prints have been released to the intercessors. Awake you sleepers from your deep slumber, for a shout has been heard in the desert places where the sun scorched earth is hungry for fresh water. The shout is being blown on the wind of the Spirit, and is getting louder and louder, until it becomes the mighty roar of the lion of God.
This earth will shake under the power being released, to my people. Miracles, signs and wonders will be a daily occurrence. Thousands will come to the throne of grace and be set free. Each new day will herald a new wonder in the heavens, as the earth tries to understand with their science, and not their faith in the one true God.
No one comes to the father except through me.
(NIV) Amos 3: 7-8
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets.
The lion has roared—
who will not fear?
The Sovereign Lord has spoken—
who can but prophesy?
(NIV) John 14: 6-7
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
Beloved, this is a day of restoration. See even now, I am wiping every tear from your eye. I am bringing healing into all those places of hurt and wounding. Many are the lies that have been spoken over your life, both by yourself and others. You have thought that I have forgotten you and overlooked all the pain, but I have kept each tear in my bottle and I have wept as injustices have been perpetrated on my own.
Look up and see my salvation, see that my arm is not too short to rescue you and restore you. Even now I am working to bring reconciliation between mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, sisters, brothers and every one who names the name of Jesus. I will have a pure and spotless bride.
This is a time to forgive and release all who have hurt you and pray blessing into their lives. This will release you from your prison and bring you peace.
(NIV) Ephesians 4:32
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
21/5/15 Lilies of the field
Oh how i love you, my love for you endures forever so do not worry about
tomorrow, do not fear that I am not there, seek me and you will find me,
ask me and I will hear. I love you my bride with an unfailing love, you
are my precious one. I hold you in the palm of my hand and I will
provide because that is who I am. Do not waste another minute in worry
as worry steals you away from my presence instead trust me.
Know that I am for you always.
(NIV) Matthew 6 : 25-33
“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 splendor 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.
20/5/15 Called to Walk
The narrow path is your calling. It has been set before you, for you have shown your heart as a reflection of mine. My friend, you hunger after heaven on earth. You are my witness to the multitudes; your voice carries authority and influence beyond even the boundaries that you have set yourself.
Know that my “yes and amen” is for you. Where you have been patient in the small things, I now release into your hands the areas of growth that you have hungered after. You will begin to see the answers to those prayers open before you. Take this new ground in my name, and build upon the rock of your salvation.
(NIV) Ephesians 5:8-10
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.
(NIV) Matthew 7:13-14
‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
19/5/15 I will never let you go
My beautiful bride, do you sense the deepening darkness around you? Are you watching the desolation of families, as their loved ones spiral into a hurricane of sin? Sex, drugs and alcohol, fed by a hunger created in the very pit of hell itself. This darkness is sweeping the world, seeking to infest whomever it can find. Endless nights playing vile, violent computer games, birthed in the heart and minds of those controlled by the demonic principalities. This darkness wants to swallow up every generation, it hungers for every soul.
You my bride are my light in this darkness, you shine brighter and brighter every day, it cannot quench your light for you carry the eternal light. I will never stop and I will always be in the thick of this battle, to bring peace into the lives of families and generations of families. Do not let the enemy distract your eyes to the problems surrounding you. Fix your eyes upon me, and see clearly the day of salvation, for those that are being trapped in the lies of the enemy.
(NIV) Hebrews 13: 2-6
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?”
18/5/15 Look for Me
When you look around you and see only deprivation and destruction, a world heading full tilt towards the gates of Hades, look for me, for I will be in the middle reaching out and touching as many lives as I can. I will be at the end chasing after all who do not know me yet. I will be at the front embracing all who run into my arms.
I call all my warriors to arms, gird yourselves and be prepared, for each of you stand in the gap for a life that does not see me yet. Help them to open their eyes and ears to the calling of my still small voice. We, my friends will pull and pull until the grip of the enemy is broken over our friends and families, our towns and cities.
Look for me and you will find me.
(NIV) John 10: 9-10
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
15/5/15 Spiritual Hunger
Do you sense the hunger rising within you? Can you taste the sweet morsels being released like manna from heaven? Move forward with anticipation, for the sounds of heaven are already being heard in the nations.
My church knows the seasons, and you my beloved, are aware of my Spirit being poured out over all flesh. This is a time of feasting, are you hungry for a greater depth of relationship with me? Then reach out and be transformed as the remnant that you are.
Holy Spirit will meet with you in your worship. Your new songs will melt the hearts of a stubborn world. When you preach my word it will cut through the barriers of sin and shame. Boldly lay hands on the sick, and watch the dead being raised from the grave.
(NIV) Luke 6: 20-22
Looking at his disciples, he said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
(NIV) Luke 7: 21-22
At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.
My family stand strong, as the world tries to label my church as bigoted and unyielding to the acceptance of their deviant plans and purposes. The enemy has his spies in every avenue of society, they are watching for every word you speak and every song you sing and unless it matches up to their labels of comformity, you my beloved, will be attacked in every way they can, to bring you and My kingdom into disrepute.
My word is set deep within your hearts, you are the temple of the Holy Spirit and you my friend carry the discernment to be able to see and know the truth in all situations. Teach those who are less able to see that the label stuck to them is a lie, for you carry all truth, through love.
(NIV) John 15: 18-23
“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.
(NIV) James 3: 13-18
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
As the chains of the past fall to your feet, know that I have brought complete deliverance to every part of your life. The clouds of darkness and shadow begin to dissipate from around your mind and your spirit.
The places where every unsound doctrine had power over what you thought have been destroyed. Even those, who had false authority to get you to do their bidding, have been washed clean, and you are set free to hear my voice, and carry my full authority into all that surrounds your life.
Allow yourself, my family to step forward into complete deliverance, and walk out a life of victory surrounded by all that is Kingdom.
(NIV) Psalm 3: 8
From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
(NIV) Psalm 138: 7
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
with your right hand you save me.
12/5/15 The Lie of Silence
Open your ears and hear what I am releasing to the very core of your being, living in silence when you are being manipulated and abused by others is not holy, good or acceptable. When the bruises are ripe and sore, yet hidden by the lairs of your clothes, know that I still see them.
I know that you love them deeply and you want to see them change. You cry out prayer after prayer for their salvation and your deliverance. Silence is a lie to their shame.
You my beautiful one, are the apple of my eye and perfectly made, created to be free, to laugh and shout, to run and dance in the rain.
Forgive them, but do not let silence rob you of your freedom.
(NIV) Galatians 5: 13-14
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 neighbour as yourself.”
11/5/15 Tear Catcher
Every tear that you release in your time of pain and suffering, is caught and sealed lovingly in my heart, for every tear is a prayer. Every prayer is heard and answered, no tear is wasted, and every one of them is counted. Each day of your life and every hair upon your head are known to me.
Every breath you take and every place you put your foot, have been ordained from the very beginning of time. Where you live, and even the people who seem to bring strife and hardship, are to you as iron sharpens iron. You my beloved, created for my purpose upon this earth are being made ready, your character shines brightly as a beacon, you will draw many to the flame you carry for each of you burn with power and authority in my Name.
(NIV) Psalm 126: 4-6
Restore our fortunes, Lord,
like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.
(NIV) Isaiah 25: 8-9
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.”
Beloved, I have watched as you have set yourself in a position of humility. You have bowed low before me surrendering everything that you have and are into My hands. I have heard as you have simply acknowledged that I am the potter and you are the clay. You have allowed me to mould every part of you, and where I have found marring, I have reshaped and reworked those areas in your heart.
Now is the time to arise, knowing that I have commissioned and called you. Even now, you are being knighted, and with that, comes My empowering and My envisioning. Rise with courage and valour, knowing that you are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, cheering you on. Run now the race marked out for you, only straining for what is ahead and not looking back. Rise and run!
(NIV) Psalm 149:4
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
(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.
My beloved bride, are you ready for my return? Have you purified and made yourself ready? Are your wicks trimmed and your lamps full of oil? Does your heart scan the very air for My coming? Beloved are you awake? Do you see, do you hear the fast approaching steps? For in the twinkling of an eye, I will step from behind the veil and all mankind will see, and know, that I am, God. They will bow their knees in the weight of My presence and glory.
Do not be deceived by the words of man, and do not listen to the many voices that say I have already come. No one will miss the day of My return. My glory will be seen throughout the earth. Get yourself ready! Do not be unprepared for My return. Set your heart on the things above, store up for yourself treasures in heaven. Ready yourself!
(NIV) Luke 17:22-24
Then he said to his disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. People will tell you, ‘There he is!’ or ‘Here he is!’ Do not go running off after them. For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.
(NIV) Matthew 6:19-21
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
6/5/15 Double Portion
My sons and daughters, I call for each of you to release a double portion to all around you. I release to you the strength and fortitude to push through all that tries to stop and hinder you. Reach out in love and compassion to a world engrossed in its own destructive journey.
Pour out more love, more hope, pour out more of me. Double portions of all good things will bring a transition of change, a fresh breath blowing through the lives of your loved ones and friends.
As your towns and cities breathe in my fullness, watch as refreshing wind fills the lives and churches of a hungry nation.
(NIV) Isaiah 61: 6-8
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
and in their riches you will boast.
Instead of your shame
you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
and everlasting joy will be yours.
“For I, the Lord, love justice;
I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
and make an everlasting covenant with them.
(NIV) Acts 3: 19
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
5/5/15 Harvest! Harvest!
Beloved, draw the lost into My Kingdom through any means possible, become all things to all men. Be wise as serpents and gentle as doves. Even now I place My nets into your hands, all are different sizes. Become the fishers of men that you are called to be, some for the ones and twos, some for the hundreds and thousands and some for the tens of thousands. Each one has an anointing to reach the lost. The great I AM is sending you! Do not hide behind the walls of the church thinking it is only for those in charge. NO! It is for you, you are the one that I have given the net to. YES! That’s right it is yours. Get alongside those who know how to bring in the harvest and learn. Now, is the time for the harvest!
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 9:19-23
Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
4/5/15 Which side?
I am coming to sweep through the nations and unleash My holiness upon all those who name My name. No longer will there be found those who stand with a foot in two camps, instead they will choose. I love you with an eternal love, but I am a Holy God, and I will have men and women whose hearts and lives are sold out for me, in every arena of life. They will no longer sway between two opinions, but will stand strong and courageous, and declare change into the nations.
(NIV) Joshua 24:15
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.”
(NIV) Deuteronomy 30:19-20
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Look and see, open your eyes and watch what I am doing at this time. I call you forth as My watchmen. Raise a call to the nations, cry out aloud and do not be silenced.
Prepare the way! Prepare the way!
See the time is drawing near. Do not hesitate, do not hold back! Let the clarion call go out into all the nations. I AM causing my banner to be raised, and the nations will rally to My call, as you release your voices and shout aloud. Watch as I send My warrior watchmen throughout the nations! Arise, awaken from your sleep and from your slumber.
Prepare the way of the Lord!
(NIV) Mark 1:2b-3
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way”—
“a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’”
(NIV) Psalm 85:9
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
that his glory may dwell in our land.
