When Friends Betray…God Delivers


Psalm 55 NIV
1 Listen to my prayer, O God,
do not ignore my plea;
2     hear me and answer me.
My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught
3     because of what my enemy is saying,
because of the threats of the wicked;
for they bring down suffering on me
and assail me in their anger.

4 My heart is in anguish within me;
the terrors of death have fallen on me.
Fear and trembling have beset me;
horror has overwhelmed me.
6 I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.
7 I would flee far away
and stay in the desert;[c]
8 I would hurry to my place of shelter,
far from the tempest and storm.”

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words,
for I see violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they prowl about on its walls;
malice and abuse are within it.
11 Destructive forces are at work in the city;
threats and lies never leave its streets.

12 If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
I could hide.
13 But it is you, a man like myself,
    my companion, my close friend,
14 with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
    at the house of God,
as we walked about
    among the worshipers.

15 Let death take my enemies by surprise;
let them go down alive to the realm of the dead,
for evil finds lodging among them.

16 As for me, I call to God,
and the Lord saves me.
17 Evening, morning and noon
I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.
18 He rescues me unharmed
from the battle waged against me,
even though many oppose me.
19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
because they have no fear of God.

20 My companion attacks his friends;
    he violates his covenant.
21 His talk is smooth as butter,
    yet war is in his heart;
his words are more soothing than oil,
    yet they are drawn swords.

22 Cast your cares on the Lord
    and he will sustain you;
he will never let
    the righteous be shaken.
23 But you, God, will bring down the wicked
    into the pit of decay;
the bloodthirsty and deceitful
    will not live out half their days.

But as for me, I trust in you.

 

More of you oh Lord 2


Spiritual Maturity Test

Lets see how teachable we are. Lets test to see how well we follow instructions.

Write down what you see in yourself and how readily you are to walk in obedience?

At the end share what you have seen in yourself and what through the Holy Spirit you will look to change about being obedient or humble?

More of you oh Lord 2

Sharing from the prayer conference this morning on the assignment above was deep.

As we begin to look inward and search and listen we begin to see the real us.

The Holy Spirit also begins to work and show us how we need to change for the kingdom of God.

Through this exercise, we learnt that we should come before God naked ready for worship. Nakedness before God is simply stripping ourselves of our sinful nature.  Jealousy, envy, malice, pride, lying, pretentiousness, favoritism, disobedience, murmuring, ungratefulness, stubborn, stiff-nakedness, just to name a few ungodly behaviors that hinder us from living a blessed life and get between us getting intimate with God. “Too much clothes”. Let us lay these things aside as we connect with God.

What is our new life showing?

Can someone see Christ within us in our smile, in our general attitude?

More than what we say it is what we do and we have to remember that our daily lives should reflect Christ.

Have a wonderful day as we grow together and mature in the kingdom of God.

Jesus Touch me by Dione Watt


1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

I love it when I’m in the company of people that can uplift you, motivate you, and challenge you to become a much better YOU and not them or someone else.

I therefore have the honor of meeting one such person yesterday, and spent a life-changing evening with her and my best friend Trudy Ross.

Mrs Debbie Miller-Curtis, thank you so much for your passion, diligence, and obedience to our Lord, for I am a life that is changed as a result.

You are the perfect example of what a Christian should be.

Like the prophet Elisha who served under the prophet Elijah, I will never leave your side until I can inherit your mantle, so I imagine I will be making way too many trips to Jersey.

Are You in the Perfect Will of God by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


The Lord is sending a WARNING to us as to why it is so important that we make sure that every day we are SMACK BANG in the centre of his perfect WILL for our lives. Unless you are asleep, you should clearly be able to see the BLATENT warfare that we are up against which is hitting us from all angles and every direction in society right now.

Living in God's Will

This moment and it is not just us (the children of God) but also everyone who is being AFFECTED or INFECTED by the continual onslaught of the enemy’s new strategies and attacks.  Remember the word of God says (Eph 6:12) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”!

There is a careful and strategic plan of attack against anyone who does not comply with the agenda of Satan in his long-term goal of taking as many people to HELL as possible and the destruction of the children of God at all costs. (John 10:10)
There are daily news reports surfacing on the CONTAMUNATION of various popular FOOD ITEMS & DRINKS and it should be old news to you that certain drinking water has been compromised for a long time. We are being attacked from the air with “CHEM-TRAILS.

I just yesterday read an article that exposed the FACT that high volumes of led were found in popular MAKE UP lines which can cause CANCER & DISEASE yet the Lord is saying many are OBLIVIOUS and continue to be led by their FLESH and not by the Holy Spirit.
Have you noticed that there is now a record number of women shaving or cutting their hair in the pursuit of going natura! Let me ask you a question, do you think that it’s just for fashion or a trend or is there a deeper SPIRITUAL MEANING behind what we are seeing being manifest before our very eyes?

The chemicals that we use on our bodies are being used against us at a greater level than ever before. The rate of disease is growing and there are now many new diseases being found that are IMMUNE to ANTIBIOTICS, so what will happen when there are no longer any suitable medications left?
Satan has every angle covered. The Air, various FOODS, certain WATERS and various MAKE UP lines have all been COMPROMISED to some extent. I have even read that they have put hormones in certain urban clothing lines that can cause men to be more EFFEMINATE and women to be more MASCULINE and the things I have listed above are just to name but a few of the things that are happening RIGHT NOW.

God is saying to us today that the only way that we will escape the plans of Satan to try and DESTROY us in these last days is to CONTINUALLY make sure that we are in the PERFECT WILL OF GOD for our lives and also make sure we are quick to REPENT!
The word of God says (Mark 16:18) “They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. When the apostle Paul was bitten by the snake and wasn’t harmed it was because he was in the perfect center of the WILL OF GOD.

There is no more time to be unsure or wishy washy.  Satan’s attacks are relentless and they will not stop until Christ returns. The Holy Spirit is leading us in many new directions because of what the enemy is doing. Make sure you ask daily about food and the things listed, pray for direction and even bless the clothes you buy because it is EVERYWHERE. “Those that are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.” It is time to make sure you are a SON, because RIGHT NOW it is surely means the difference between LIFE & DEATH.

Transformation by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


God wants you to know on this day that when He is building his glory inside us it is not necessarily, what we would expect with our natural minds! We start to think about how He works to develop that power within and we may immediately picture ourselves laid out prostrate.  Laboring long hours in prayer and intercession or going on 40 day fasts or to spiritual retreats and all that stuff that certainly does help with the process, but actually the reality I am learning is a lot less deep, because it is already done.

Transformed, Finished WorkGod’s Finished Work

Being human we tend to want to justify our works by looking at what we do as a way to judge what God is doing deep on the inside of us! Now, please do not misunderstand me.  God does lead us to do things for his glory and the things mentioned above like prayer, intercession and fasting do edify us and are very advantageous to our walk with the Lord but there is still a work going on deep down within our spirit man that has nothing to do with anything that we could contribute. This is the work of our savior Jesus Christ on the cross and our now divine exchange! (2 Pet 1:3)

It often feels like nothing is happening when we are going about our lives, doing the standard normal stuff that needs to be done, daily. We are perusing the will of God, going to work and to church as usual, somehow we fit in everything else that needs to be done and we could be forgiven for thinking that because we are not feeding the 5000, raising the dead or parting the red sea that nothing major is really happening! (Rom 2:10) But God wants you to know that YOU ARE WRONG!

The real exchange of God’s glory being given to us happened when (Jesus) willingly gave his life on our behalf on the cross! However, over time our Father is able to build up that same glory inside us.  With every conversation, every vexation, every situation or problem at work, every family dilemma, every financial problem or issue, every test of integrity at church or at home, every monthly pay check, every prayer, every choice and every divine exchange, every test and trial, situation and circumstance to name but a few. He uses everything in our lives to help cultivate and develop the process of steadily building the glory of Christ deep down within our spirit. (Rom 11:36)

There is nothing that God does not and cannot use to help build us, even our dreams and visions and the inner revelations we receive serve as an expression or an outlet for what God is up to when all we are doing is perusing his will and going about our normal day to day routines. The word of God say’s “Don’t judge anything before the APPOINTED time” (1 Cor 4:5) because while you are in PROCESS you will not be able to see what is really going on because it looks like nothing is changing. (Rom 8:28)

When a butterfly is in the cocoon you cannot see what is taking place but when it is RELEASED, you cannot miss the TRANSFORMATION, it is clear for all to see what was happening in the hidden season and it’s a vision of BEAUTY.

Be encouraged that God is at work behind the scenes in our spirits as we speak regardless of what you perceive because of what Christ has already done! When you can’t see it praise him anyway because when your time comes you will be a sight to behold and truly UNRECOGNISABLE, Shalom!

 

You are Qualified through Trails and testing…Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Everyone wants to receive the BREAKTHROUGH, FAVOUR, SUPERNATURAL PROVISION and MIRACLES SIGNS & WONDERS but start talking about the SUFFERING in proportion to the blessings of God in your walk with the Lord and suddenly we have all developed SELECTIVE HEARING!

Rigorous Training

Jesus wants you to go back to the WORD today and really look at the lives of any of his servants that did great works on the earth. Where there are abundant blessings there is also suffering of some kind to go with it. Suffering QUALIFIES YOU, it conditions your heart and firmly fixes the agenda of God into your spirit so you are deemed worthy to walk in the greatness of your calling.

There is something unique about the hardships and trials and the tests that suffering will bring that can teach you more about yourself than any other situation you will ever experience. When we are not saved and we suffer needlessly for Satan’s agenda we look at it from the perspective of life being unfair or we resign our plight to Karma or fate!

When we come to Christ and we suffer just as much if not more we start to complain and get dismayed by the REAL WALK WITH GOD, thinking that God doesn’t love us or start doubting our whole walk altogether. James the apostle said “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Suffering is the NORM!

If Jesus suffered so shall we but instead of complaining REJOICE (Rom 5:3-5) because you have become worthy to take on the sufferings of Christ! It is an honor to be the furnace of affliction (Isa 48:10) because it is there that God’s glory can truly be revealed and you are being tested as GOLD! (1Pet 1:7)

Walk as a Child of God by Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Isaiah 57:1-2 (KJV)

The righteous perishes,
And no man takes it to heart;
Merciful men are taken away,
While no one considers
That the righteous is taken away from evil.
He shall enter into peace;
They shall rest in their beds,
Each one walking in his uprightness.

Walk as a Child of God

You may have noticed that the father is being a lot stricter with you and that is because He wants you to understand that in this hour it is very important that your WORDS match up with your ACTIONS in validation of your FAITH!

We are in the END -TIMES where people are in flat out rebellion and willfully do not want to serve the Lord! Music, T.V. Films and the media in general are all working in opposition to the word of God and his commands, which has shaped a generation that is inevitably, being groomed to serve in the ANTICHRIST system.

We all have family members and friends who are resistant to hearing the word or being saved and though we pray and try to drop a word here and there, they just like us will have to make a choice whether or not to follow the Lord sooner or later. I say all of that to say this, our lives and the words we speak and our actions in many cases may be the closest thing that some people will ever get to the BIBLE.

We are a walking epistle!

People who cannot receive Christ for whatever reason are watching the things we do and they are weighing up their options to see if they could walk the walk and believe like us. We must more than anything start to practice what we PREACH and if we are not be honest about it by being transparent rather than unintentionally leading anyone astray or into discouragement!

The word of God say is that troubles and tests will surely come but we must not let them become an obstacle for ourselves or anyone else around us. Your consistency in following the word of God over the doctrines of the world is like a banner over your life for all to see.

The REMNANT of God is the ones who preach from the gospel and apply it to their lives, living the word, breathing the word, dreaming the word! No one is perfect and trust me we all fall short but we have to constantly be aware of how we live and what we do.

Sometimes, you not partaking in certain things speak more than just telling people what is right and wrong.  We need to be men and women of the WORD of God everyday so our whole lives becomes a tool to evangelize our unsaved family members, friends, work colleagues and brothers and sisters in the ministry who need to see a good example.

God is separating the wheat from the chaff; you are now being able to see, who the REMNANT is as opposed to the ones who follow the worldly church system. The Lord says my sons are the ones who are led by my spirit and my friends are the ones who do as I say!
