31/5/16 My Perfect Timing for You
When you look at the face of a clock, there are three hands, the hour, the minutes and the seconds. As you watch and listen, the second hand moves slowly and all you hear is “tick, tick, tick”, for many of my family, believe time moves very slowly for them, as they are hungry to get on with their heavenly calling.
When you turn the clock around and look inside the back of it, you will find a compartment filled with moving wheels, some speeding around, others moving more slowly but all are interconnected and doing their job to create the one tick and the next.
You my beloved church, must become aware of all that needs to be in place for you to step into your calling and all that needs to be prepared behind the scene of your life and walk needs to come into supernatural alignment for you to even take your first step into my perfect timing for your life.
Be patient and as time moves by, tick, tick, tick, know that everything is working together for your good.
(NIV) Galatians 6: 9-10
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
(NIV) Psalm 23: 5-6
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
(NIV) Jeremiah 29: 11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
30/5/16 No More Whispers
My church has become a whisper in the nations, when it should be the loudest voice, speaking into the lives and communities that surround it. Each of my family has been given authority and power to be my voice upon this earth. Would I be timid and quiet when my brothers and sisters are being maimed and killed for their faith? Would I stand by as they try to wipe out my name in all schools and universities?
The time of whispering my name in the corridors of power has ended. It is time to shout it out and not be silenced by the looks and glares of those around you, who want to keep you in the shadows of complacency. Rise up my family and again step into the light of the battlefield for you are the Kingdom Warriors, trained in supernatural warfare.
The roar of the Lion of Judah will be heard, and all mankind will sense the shaking in every nation, as my authority is released into the very wind itself. Listen and know my friends that the time is close for your hearts are yearning for My Kingdom come.
(NIV) Jeremiah 25: 30-31a
“‘The Lord will roar from on high;
he will thunder from his holy dwelling
and roar mightily against his land.
He will shout like those who tread the grapes,
shout against all who live on the earth.
The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth,
for the Lord will bring charges against the nations;
he will bring judgment on all mankind
(NIV) Zechariah 10: 4-5
From Judah will come the cornerstone,
from him the tent peg,
from him the battle bow,
from him every ruler.
Together they will be like warriors in battle
trampling their enemy into the mud of the streets.
They will fight because the Lord is with them,
and they will put the enemy horsemen to shame.
(NIV) Luke 21: 25-27
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
27/5/16 Angel Armies
My friends, have I not put at your disposal all the armies of heaven. My angels stand ready waiting on your prayers to Me, to release them. Watch as I increase the angelic in these last days. You will encounter more and more, the angels of My presence, as I blow My breath especially, where My people come together in unity.
Pray release of the end time harvester angels. Have I not promised and will I not do? Many people stand at the cusp of salvation, longing to know that they are loved and cared for by Me. As you work hand in hand with the angelic army, you will see many step off the fence of indecision and into the Kingdom.
My friends, do not hold back, but pray and ask me, to release the angelic host, to work with you, to bring in the harvest. Even now their anticipation is rising, as the angelic forces prepare for the harvest.
(NIV) Hebrews 1: 7 and 14
In speaking of the angels he says,
“He makes his angels spirits,
and his servants flames of fire.
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
(NIV) Joshua 5: 13-15
Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”
“Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”
The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.
(NIV) Matthew 4: 21
And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
26/5/16 Dull? Tired? Jaded? Read On!
Are you aware of how tired you are, and how hard it is to do what you found easy to do before? Do you sense the shadow of despair rolling across your vision, trying to come between you and my light? Everything has become a slog, and boredom has become a close friend. You know there is better but you don’t know how to get there, and how to pull yourself up, and out of this hole of oppression.
You are my beloved bride and I will never leave you in this situation, but you have some things you need to put into place to open the door for supernatural healing to come in. Turn on your music players all over your home, and allow the healing music of love and power to evade every corner of your home and your heart. Listen to the words of the songs as they drift in and out of you mind and heart. This, my beloved, will lift you up and my light will again be free to shine into your heart of hearts, never stop singing.
Open my living word and read about the truth of who you are to me. You are awesomely and wonderfully made, you carry my heart and I hunger after my bride. Your beauty has no equal, and I hold you in my loving embrace and I will not let you go. My light will chase away every shadow for I want to look at you in the perfect light of salvation. Keep your eyes fixed upon me and I will fill your vision with my love and hope. Hold onto my hand, and I will lead you into your supernatural destiny that has been planned, for you from the beginning of time.
Open your heart to prayer, talk to me each second of everyday, for I AM enthroned upon your heart. I am not in a faraway place, I live within you and The Holy Spirit pours out power into every part of your life, to empower you to stand against the attacks of the enemy. There is nothing that can harm or touch you when you and I stand together in unity.
I love you with an everlasting Love.
(NIV) Ephesians 5: 18-20
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(NIV) 1 Peter 1: 19-25
But with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 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. For,
“All people are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord endures forever.”
(NIV) 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-24
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
(NIV) Jeremiah 31: 3-4
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
I will build you up again,
and you, Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt.
Again you will take up your timbrels
and go out to dance with the joyful.
25/5/16 Comfortable Fit
When you put your feet into a pair of new shoes, it can take a bit of time before the shoes become a comfortable fit. At times they will pinch your heel and some blistering may appear also, but eventually you will wear them in, and the shoes will become part of your everyday fashion.
After a few months or years they will begin to get scruffy and maybe even hurt your feet as you outgrow them and now is the time to again buy a new pair of shoes.
My church can be very similar to new shoes, when you arrive at the front door for the first time, it can take a while for you to fit in, and can seem to be quite uncomfortable for you. Beginning to understand all the different styles and shapes and sizes, you can easily become confused as you know you are never going to fit into every category of servant hood that’s available in church structure. As time goes by you will become comfortable and will find that you fit and belong there, for now.
My friends, there is a time when you begin to become aware in church life that you are sensing an uncomfortable pull and it is getting stronger and stronger. You are hungry for more but that more is not readily available or even acceptable where you are. This is called growth and maturity, embrace it with joy and laughter for you are beginning to outgrow the structure that you are with, and I am calling you to seek out a new place that will feed you the meat that you require.
Take off the old shoes and go shopping, try on a few different pairs until you find the one that encompasses your feet and makes you comfortable.
Enjoy your new shoes.
(NIV) Luke 5: 36-37
He told them this parable: “No one tears a piece out of a new garment to patch an old one. Otherwise, they will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.
(NIV) Hebrews 5: 12-15
In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
(NIV) Luke 4: 24
“Truly I tell you,” he continued, “no prophet is accepted in his hometown.
24/5/17 The Storm of Creativity
I AM releasing a supernatural storm, filled with power and colour, even the rain drops will be filled with every colour that is known. The winds will carry fresh revelation to my artists and sculptors. You my beloved will paint with new vigour and strength, your eyes and hands will be directed by the Holy Spirit as you dance across the canvas.
My dancers will dance to the heavenly beat of my heart, and they will know the new dance. The chorographers will bring what they see and hear into the dance of the rainbow, as all colours are released into the heavenly movements, of my called and anointed ones.
Sense the intensity of my heart for the dream interpreters. As you become more aware of the open revelations that are being revealed to you in your revelatory gifts, seek deeper than you have before.
My Intercessors, you are at times overlooked by the many, and yet you are the ones who plough the earth for the harvest to be planted. You then tend the youthful shoots of growth with your loving prayers. You call into being the harvest and the harvesters. Your prayers of power are ever flowing before the throne of grace. Each prayer a cry for the heart of a different nation of this world.
It is time to move outside and dance in my rain and allow the colours to be released from My Heart to yours, and to soak through every part of you and your life.
(NIV) Luke 12: 27-28
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, 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, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!
(NIV) 1 Timothy 2: 1-2
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
(NIV) Job 36: 32-33a
He fills his hands with lightning
and commands it to strike its mark.
His thunder announces the coming storm;
23/5/16 The Finished Jewel
When a diamond is dug out of the ground it is rough and cloudy, and yet highly prized. It is carried with great care and security, for its worth is sought after by many. It will become beautiful as it goes through the process of cleansing and reshaping. When the cleaning is finished it will be bright and clear. When you hold it up to the light and scrutinise it, its entire colour will be revealed to the eye of the beholder. The rainbow of colour will flow around every surface. When the master craftsman begins to hone it, the diamond will be changed as rough edge after rough edge is gently removed, and over time it will become the shape of a perfectly honed diamond, it is now ready to be set into its calling.
You, my beloved family, were like rough diamonds, when you first called my name. I dug you out of the miry clay and The Holy Spirit began to hone you with my living word and worship. I watched as the rough edges and hard times began to fall away, and you became more and more revealed, your beauty and colour rising, brighter and fresher every day. You, my friend, have gone through the hands of the master, and He has revealed the true beauty that you carry, and created in you a clean heart.
You now stand ready to be released into your Kingdom Calling, for you are My finished Jewel.
(NIV) Zechariah 9: 16-17a
The Lord their God will save his people on that day
as a shepherd saves his flock.
They will sparkle in his land
like jewels in a crown.
How attractive and beautiful they will be!
(NIV) Hebrews 10: 21-23
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.
(NIV) Hebrews 3: 1
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.
20/5/16 Arise of God’s Marksmen
I am raising up the generations to take their God given stance. Every man, woman and child will stand in the place of battle, everyone prepared and ready for war. I have trained your hands for battle and your fingers for war, your arms can bend bows of bronze.
Do not be afraid of their faces, stand up and say to them everything I have said to you. Your boldness and confidence in me, will be rewarded.
Watch as your children speak words of life and bring people to places of reconciliation. They will be fierce and overcome and will lead those who are older into places that they have been afraid to go. You will defeat the enemy where he has stood against you for many years, as a new level of warrior arises. Towns and cities will be brought into new encounters with my love.
Watch as every word and every deed will hit the mark, no more to go amiss. The bulls eye of every heart will be hit, as words of knowledge are released from your lips, under the leading of My Holy Spirit.
I call My Marksmen to arise!
(NIV) Psalm 18:28-36
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.
As for God, his way is perfect:
the Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.
He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You make your saving help my shield,
and your right hand sustains me;
your help has made me great.
You provide a broad path for my feet,
so that my ankles do not give way.
(NIV) Psalm 144:1
Praise be to the Lord my Rock,
who trains my hands for war,
my fingers for battle.
(NIV) Jeremiah 1:7-10
But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, “I am too young.” You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 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.’
(NIV) Jeremiah 1:17-19
‘Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land – against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,’ declares the Lord.
19/5/16 Ankle Biters
There are many who chase after your attention, they come in every form, shape and size. They are made of plaster, wood or even metal. They are voiceless and powerless and yet they want to rule your life and every second of every day. They nip at your heels from conversations with friends. They have a new home, where they can try to catch your eye and mind, through every type of media. They will remind you that if you do not encompass them into your life, that you will be scorned, for you will not look like those around you. I was scorned and spat on. I was hated for my love of you. I will never leave you or forsake you.
Is karma your new word? Why do you need it when you carry my perfect peace? Is there a place where the world is creeping into your everyday life and you are not even noticing the changes that it is having within the core of your being? Open my living word each day and fill your well to overflowing, let the waters of life flow out from you and everyone will be touched.
When did my name become a curse word? And all the handmade, powerless effigies, become something to listen to, and make a part of your daily lives? Take your eyes off the lies and deceit that is being played out on your media and computers, and know that salvation is only through the son of the living God.
(NIV) Habakkuk 2: 18-19
“Of what value is an idol carved by a craftsman?
Or an image that teaches lies?
For the one who makes it trusts in his own creation;
he makes idols that cannot speak.
Woe to him who says to wood, ‘Come to life!’
Or to lifeless stone, ‘Wake up!’
Can it give guidance?
It is covered with gold and silver;
there is no breath in it.”
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15: 57-58
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
(NIV) Acts 4: 11-12
“‘the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
18/5/16 Don’t Get Too Comfy!
My friends, it is easy at times to get your feet under the table of ministry, and think, yes, I have made it. Do not get too comfortable in this position, as I have called you to be my arms and legs.
You are being shaken, and as you move forward all that is not needed or wanted in the coming kingdom adventure is falling away from you. Yes, this is an uncomfortable time for you, and at times you do not know which way is up. Keep your eyes fixed upon me and allow The Holy Spirit free range in every part of your life and ministry.
I am transitioning you from glory to glory. You will become one who walks this earth bringing teaching and training in the spiritual gifts, and bringing the revelation into the hearts of those you meet, as to the anointing they carry. You carry a deep hunger for my living word and a heart to see cities, towns and villages, completely set free by My Spirit.
Rest in me and know my peace, do not be troubled as you move through this process, for my arms encircle you and I hold you close, My Beloved.
(NIV) Hebrews 12: 27
The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
(NIV) James 3: 1-2
Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 12: 8-10
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 2:14
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
Beloved, recognise that I have made you victorious through My Son, Jesus. Realise that every place that you put the sole of your foot, that you have already gained the victory. The enemy has no authority over you. You do not need to accept any pretence or any lie that he throws your way. Remember that your enemy merely prowls around seeking whom he may devour, he has no power other than that which you give him.
Choose this day not to give him a foothold in your life!
Do not open the doors of fear for I have not given you a spirit of fear or timidity, but of power, love and self control (sound mind). You lack no good thing for I am your shepherd. I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Christ. You are accepted and loved.
Today, remind yourself that you are already in that triumphal procession in Christ!
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(NIV) Psalm 20:6
Now this I know: the LORD gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand.
16/5/16 Self Righteousness = No righteousness!
My family we are moving into a season of blindness for many, even the elect will become confused as though walking about wearing a blindfold. The world and the master of this world are birthing new ways to bring their warped and repugnant ideologies into the natural. The form in which they are being released has become easy to the eye and the mind, we accept far more as we bow to public discord against my living word.
I AM the same today as yesterday and I will be the same for Eternity. Nothing of My Kingdom has changed. I love you my friend with an everlasting love, it will never be watered down.
When you allow yourself to become entangled with the acts of the enemy, and you partner with them, they will become a truth in your life. You will make a place for them within your heart, and accept them as the truth, even when they do not match up to my Living Word. You will surround yourself with self righteousness and the blindfold will be lowered. Many things will then become acceptable to you that you would have never allowed before.
I call you deeper and deeper into the river of love. I want you my beloved to know me so fully that there is no place left for the enemy to try to lure you away to his new Sodom and Gomorrah.
Focus all of your heart, mind, spirit and body towards the Kingdom of Heaven. Open your spiritual ears to hear the voice of The Holy Spirit and do as He says. This world is not your world for you are aliens here.
I AM your Home
(NIV) Hebrews 13: 4-8
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?”
Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 11: 2-4
I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 5: 17-21
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. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
13/5/16 An Oasis in the Desert or Is It?
There are many churches that look like a castle built around an oasis; the water encircles the castle walls. The vegetation is lush and green in close proximity to the castle, and the people within the castle have plenty. There is much music and laughter from within the walls, where it is safe. Outside, in the blazing sun of the arid desert, stand those who do not know how to gain entry to the place filled with food, music and laughter. They watch the high walls of the castle, hungry for the littlest morsel and yet no one comes out to meet their need. No one stirs from their privileged place of honour at the head table filled with the banquet of religion.
Have you my church become deaf to the cries of the starving, the hopeless and the dispossessed? Are you having so much fun, safely wrapped around by your mighty walls of the castles, built by your own hands? These people are dry and need to be given the living water. Will you empty your cup of privilege, and fill it with my water of salvation and take it beyond your walls of safety, and allow one who is dying to drink from your cup?
Who hears my call? Rise and leave your bastions of hiddenness and walk out into the heat of the day and take my banqueting table to the people in the arid places.
Then you will be known as My Church.
(NIV) Luke 6: 46-49
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
(NIV) Mark 9: 41
Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.
(NIV) Matthew 22: 8-14
“Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
“But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.
“Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
“For many are invited, but few are chosen.”
12/5/16 When Your Own Thoughts Attack? FIGHT BACK!
The battle lines are drawn, and the advance begins. Your mind wants to engage you in conflict, it wants to let you know that you are not worthy of the calling on your life. It then shouts out that you are not liked, not wanted, and you stand with no power or future. Every shortcoming belongs to you and only you, because everyone else has it all made up, and they are all super spiritual heroes. They hear the still small voice and have such a grasp of all kingdom authority. The battlefield of the mind takes more casualties than the enemy, for you allow your mind to control every aspect of who you are. You become what your mind says you are. You own thoughts lie and rob you of your Kingdom Identity.
My beloved fight back, raise your thoughts to what is above, and not upon earthly things. Do not measure yourself against others for you were created to be one who stands out from the crowd. You are unique. Your thoughts are not my thoughts; your ways are not my ways. Wash each thought in my blood and disarm them of their weaponry against you. Walk out in freedom with your mind fixed upon Me and receive my peace.
(NIV) Colossians 3: 1-3
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
(NIV) Isaiah 55: 8-9
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
(NIV) Philippians 4: 4-8
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.
11/5/16 The Key of Your Door
I have placed into your hand the key that fits every door, of every problem, that is in and around your life. This key carries authority to open, and set free everything behind these closed and locked doors. All you have to do is place the key into the lock and turn. When you open the door of memory, be prepared to allow everything that hinders and keeps you trapped to fly out of the open door and be gone forever.
The door of fear will try to bring condemnation against you, and it will try to tell you, that you can’t allow yourself the freedom of opening this door wide, and kicking all fear out of your life, do so anyway and be free of fear.
The door of complacency will whisper that you should take time to think this over, and ponder on every aspect of what the outcome might be, when you open all doors. Of course this will keep you in the same cycle that you will again do nothing, and allow all the doors to remain firmly closed. Open this door anyway and free your mind.
The key within your hand is called faith, it is infused by the power of The Holy Spirit, and no door can remain shut with this key in the hands of my family.
(NIV) Revelation 3: 7
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.
(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) 1 John 4: 17-18
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.
10/5/16 Broken Toys
Do you remember your favourite toy? Do you remember how it went everywhere with you? You wouldn’t even let it go when you were having a bath! Then came the day when it broke. When the stuffing fell out; when the legs fell off; when the wheels wouldn’t turn and you cried and cried. Your parents knew you loved that toy so much, that they repaired it, re-stuffed it, did whatever they needed to, but, that toy was never the same. It didn’t look the same, feel the same or smell the same.
Now you find yourself like that toy, broken yet repaired but somehow just not the same. The newness and freshness gone.
Come and watch me work, come to my workshop and carefully observe, as I take you afresh and bring justice, where injustice has been done. I bring restoration, repairing and bringing healing. Not only restoration but restitution! Above and beyond all that you can imagine or think! See my hands at work, as I loving bring you, into your full identity.
(NIV) Isaiah 55:8-9
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
(NIV) Exodus 15:26
He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”
9/5/16 Forgiveness Complete
My family, it seems easy to speak the words “I forgive you” but not as easy to live in that completed forgiveness.
How many times have you said I forgive, only to recall the pain and wounding again and again? Why do you let the devil play with your emotions, and control your every waking moments by manipulating you, to live in a past wound that I have already healed? Unforgiveness is like picking at a scab and constantly revealing the old wound to bleed and get sore again.
Take every thought captive and do not allow your thoughts, to give rent free space in your head to the voice of another, who does not have your best interests at heart. That voice will be yours, because you have not completed forgiveness.
I forgive you completely, my blood covers every sin, I hold no grudge and I hold no mistakes against you. You are free to live.
Now you have to do the same for all around you, and let all that they have inflicted known and unknown upon you go. You don’t bring it back. You don’t worry at it in the dark night hours. Now it is your turn forgive, and SET YOURSELF FREE.
(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.
(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.
(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.
Many are the thoughts that run around inside your head, sometimes the noise becomes unbearable. Learn to realise that the thoughts that bring stress, worry and anxiety belong to the old man, they do not belong to the new man. As you offer your bodies as living sacrifices, realise that it is all of you that you are sacrificing, mentally, physically and spiritually. As you offer your thoughts to me, I will bring about the changes that you are seeking. Begin to think about yourself as I think about you. You are accepted completely in me. You are loved perfectly by me. You lack no good thing as you seek me. You are blessed with every spiritual blessing. As you begin to think as a world changer, so you will become. Allow me and work with me to bring transformation to your thoughts, so that they bring life, health and peace.
You are designed for peace, My peace which passes all understanding!
(NIV) Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
(NIV) Psalm 34:8-10
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
(NIV) Ephesians 1:3[ Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ ] Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
5/5/16 Why do you Doubt?
Why do you doubt, what I have spoken over you and your life? I have called you and anointed you to preach the good news. I have healed all your wounds, and together, we have captured every thought and covered them in my blood. You are now a true reflection of my heart, and when others look at you, they see my eyes through yours. Love, peace, joy, hope and honour, pour out from every pore of you. For you are like a spring of living water bubbling up, and you have to release it, so others can come and drink from all that you carry.
The Holy Spirit lives within you, and all authority and power, has been given to you in my name. You are the mighty warrior that I have chosen for the battle field. You are the one who will give your life for another. You will give your shirt when they come and steal your coat. You will walk the extra mile. Your feet will bleed, as you carry the wounded to the door of Salvation.
Why? Because you love me with all that you are, now and forever.
(NIV) Romans 10: 15
And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 13: 11-13
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
(NIV) Matthew 5: 40-42
And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
(NIV) 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
4/5/16 Stand Up and Lead!
Bring out your sword and start to polish and sharpen it again. You have laid it down for a season, to allow recuperation and rest. You have also said to yourself, “I’ve done my bit; it’s now time for those who are younger and stronger to take up their weapons and fight”. But what you have failed to see is that those who are younger, need wise and courageous leaders, those who have learned how to fight and to overcome with me.
It is now time to pass on those skills that you have fought so bravely to accumulate. You know the enemy, but, you are even more intimately acquainted with me. There are generations to come who need to know and carry the wisdom with which I have endowed you.
So get your weapons ready, stand up and lead!
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
(NIV) Jeremiah 1:9-10, 17
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.”
Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them.
3/5/16 Encourage one another
This is a day to encourage and to build each other up, for your enemy would come to steal, to kill and to destroy.
I know the many things that you have walked through. Some have tested your faith in me, bringing you to a place of discouragement and despair. Some have wanted to throw in the towel, especially those in leadership. Your hearts have grown dull and although you still love me, you have found it difficult to understand and press into me, even doubting my love towards you.
I would have you look back at the victories that you have won, the good things that you have tasted and see just how far you have actually come. Watch as I begin to re-infuse your heart and mind with my truth. You will sense the drawing of my Spirit over the next season. I will bring those around you who will help to blow gently on the embers of your heart, causing my life to come again. As they encourage you, you will start to encourage others.
(NIV) 1 Thessalonians 5:10-12
He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you.
(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.
2/5/16 Be revealed, My Generals
The season of hiddenness is over, you have healed and rested at my command, and I now remove the covering from you. Be revealed, and move once again to the front of my army. You are my generals and my strategists. Yes, the battle has been hard fought, and tiredness, and wounding have been inflicted, but you are healed and prepared for the battle ahead.
Arise and take command of the battle field of life and defeat the army of darkness. Free the prisoners and slaves, smash their chains, and crush the padlocks under your feet. Lead the captives into the light of my freedom. Sing as you go out into battle and raise high my standard for all to see.
The battle is won, shout out and roar, for the lion of the tribe of Judah, has brought his enemy to their knees.
(NIV) Psalm 27: 4-6
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
(NIV) Revelation 5: 5
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
(NIV) Philippians 2: 9-11
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
