RECAP, RECALL, REVIEW, REPENT

I am writing this during a period of recuperation. I was very poorly last night, but the fire of God is in me today and he has been instructing me to write and he has been giving me titles for books. I actually heard the contents being read of one and it is far beyond my ken….

I wont cover all today as this is my first day of feeling better. I have one day and then I am back to square one. No its not Covid but sometimes the Lord slows me down to take me away from the masses and to speak to me quietly.

None of us know how long we have on this earth. We have been given by reason of service 3 score and 10. I am a little way off that … but these are perilous days.

What I want to share here are a few things the Lord gave me pertaining to present time and also Covid. I have shared them where I was instructed and here I will simply summarize. This has been my life works and the call for the hour.

Let those who have ears hear what the Spirit has said and is saying to the churches.

2007-2008

1. Dream of Rapture – i had a dream of rapture in about 2009 . I know because i was pastoring in Reading and i had a dream one night that the Lord broke through the clouds. What was interesting was that some of the church people were hiding ie those who appeared staunch were crying under the window ledge of the house . I thought why? Then it was a no brainer. They simply weren’t right or ready.

2. In a second dream just before this time, i saw the Lord on his white horse faithful and true. The reins were made out of diamonds and the horse looked like he was conquering and still to conquer. The Lord was at the front and someone else I recognize. That person is still alive.

2017 – i saw a picture of Donald Trump ostracized and under guard and the work peach in the dream – i know now it relates to impeachment but i also saw that teh Lord sent his servant to Donald Trump and Donald acquiesced.

The Lord did not show me whether Biden or Trump were to win and i dont go to the Lord with any questions. He just brings things in the night.

2018/2019 The Lord showed me about the misalignment in the church – there is a disconnect . As i am writing , my own view is that the reason why the statistics are so against the UK is that neither the churches are pulling together – its all a facade. The church and the state are not working together. Instead of having masses in the House allowing people to pray and have time for personal grief , prayer and comfort we see the masses going down into the abyss and we are doing and saying nothing but playin church – doing business as usual. You cant pray or push. No one stirs themselves. We will be accountable.

March/April 2020

The Lord showed me what had happened in the Covid crisis . He said ‘it is out of the bag’ and that it was manmade. He showed me the Michelin man which depicted the prestige and force that was being levied. Small head and large body is what is significant.

He showed me the two variants at the school door- they were depicted as bees. I. Understood it to mean a new strain. It wasn’t time for the children to return to school.

2021

There are two more critical visions the Lord has brought me but i am not at liberty to share here, because the individuals would easily be identified. Mine is not to shame but to warn.

All have sinned and come short of the mercies of God. Let us all examine ourselves how we stand – We know not all Israel is Israel but that it is time for the gossip, games and the back slapping and frivolity to end. It is a stench to Fathers nose. There are people dying around us.

JUST A BOX OF MATCHES


By Evangelist Linda J UK

Written in the Year 2012

You know I love to write……. I woke up this morning about 3.00am and wanted to light some candles on my new candelabra. I have a box of matches that I must have had for years and which has moved house with me so many times. Don’t ask me why but I have a little habit of putting the used matches back in the box when i have used them, which is so frustrating when you are looking for an unused one. I tutt ever time but still do it.

This morning there seems to be millions of used ones. I lost that special moment and the stillness of the early morning hour by having to search for just that one I could use…..
As this was happening, Father spoke to my spirit. I felt him showing me , this is what it is like when he is looking for that man , or that woman whom he can use and can’t find one. He says as much in his word. He said:-

“And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
Isaiah 63:5

He calls me by name and reminded me, this is what it is like when none of his children are ready, when none have been dipped or when many have lost the essence (the red bit of the match)- the anointing and the incendiary of the Holy Ghost.

A box of cold burnt out match sticks , is not a pretty sight. It is a shell of a former glory. This spoke to me of the condition of the church, the body of Christ. Much worse, is that some of the new matches (the ones intact) are hidden under the ones that are used up and burnt out.

I feel the spirit urge me to express to ‘come out from among them and be ye separate’. There is need for a clean sweep . A need to get rid of the brick brac and the things that have no use and doesn’t bring Father glory. We must stop stifling the little ones that Father wants to and can use.

It is not just about making up the numbers, having a full box (church) but which is a damp squib and of no use…. Its about seeking out the things God has put in and placed amongst us that can be and is ready, for use.

It is the hour of power, the time to awake. It is the time to stand tall, to be ready to strike. We need substance in ourselves, substance, which will enable the lighting of a fire, a fire which will set the world ablaze with the undiluted passion and power of the saving message of the kingdom.

I hear a noise and crackling in my spirit. I know it is the ignition of God!! Draw near and be open to his word.

He says he is not a respecter of persons. He is willing to use you and waiting to set the whole box ablaze…. He wants to see his glory in His house. He wants His Name and His power known among the nations.

BINDING UP THE BROKEN HEARTED

I had not intended to write this particular word but this fine morning 13/12/2020 I am sitting with Father at our table and he is touching my heart and helping me to review the events of the past week.

On Wednesday this week, I had need to visit the X-ray department to have an X-ray on a condition that has been giving me some jip since about 2010. My daughter came with me and what a blessing to be leaning on your offspring at a time like this. I don’t take this lightly.

My name was duly called and a male nurse ushered me into a room. I wasn’t aware that he would be doing what needed to be done, but he set about doing his task.

What was so touching ( and the reason why I write and record) is the gentle care he gave as he was doing his task. He asked me questions and helped me position my body on the examining table. Thank God I didnt need to undress… He held my two feet as you would hold a baby’s and then found a solution for me to keep my toes together, as he took the photos. He gently wrapped/swaddled…. an apron round my ankles and then went to take the shots.

When he returned he spoke softly to me and repositioned me from lying down, to sitting back up. I didnt need the help, but he helped place my winter scarf around my shoulders. When I asked what the pictures had shown, he said they are not permitted to say, but if it was an emergency, I would have been booked in, but as it is routine, I will hear from my GP.

That was the event.

Next day I was able to get out of bed with a spring in my step , so much so that I laughed. I don’t know if this was a result of prayers or the care that had been given, but my pains were gone …..Glory to God!!! I began speaking in my mother tongue!! No one was going to silence that praise.

The Lord has been drawing reference to me about this event from his Holy word and what is happening in the Body.

Here was an unnamed carer/nurse who ministered and cared for me with such compassion and empathy and behind the scenes. He didn’t push me down or push his own ideas or position on me, but just respected me and accepted me as I am (sic). He also listened. Too often in the Body, we see pontification and bullish and controlling behaviors from those purported to represent our Father. They do him a disservice. Some now are soooh busy counting the number of ‘likes’, they don’t know what is happening on the ground to the flock – whether any one injured, they don’t really care. As for strategic issues, the blind is leading the blind.

The Bible says as much as you do unto my little ones (that is acts of kindness compassion and care) we do it unto, I am.

None of us knows what another person carries or is dealing with and we should walk carefully and humbly before our God. We know that some have entertained angels unnawares.

The Lord is ever present to heal and takes sickness away from us but the laborers are few. He knows our name. He doesn’t judge as men judge. He is touched with the feelings of our infirmities . He took upon him the form of servant – a lowly estate and he did it for us. He was not about making a name for himself, or bashing and demeaning others. He was always about lifting the beggar from the dung hill and our God (his Father), was satisfied with the travail of his soul which led to him being given a Name above every other Name and the praises and glory due to same through those that acknowledge and reverence same.

Let us Pray

Pray for genuine compassion to return to the Church of Jesus Christ.

Pray that we wont just profess the word, but the word be manifest in all we say and do ie stop playing church.

Pray that we wont keep straining at gnats and swallowing the camel down the road or in another nation, when there is much to do right under our noses, even now within our many zooms.

Pray that we will see whom God has sent and set amongst us ie his hurting little ones and get off our high horses like the Good Samaritan was wont to do.

Pray for a spirit of genuine humility to return to the Body and the praise of Jesus not the adulation of men. Stop bigging men up. Big up Jesus.

Pray that we don’t hide behind screens judging and pointing fingers at what we don’t understand in terms of pains that people carry. Ask God for the spirit of truth and wisdom, to help us to adjudicate and to judge righteously.

The world is waiting and are sick to the back teeth of performances and empty words and sounds of the so called church. The sound is dull and manufactured. Praying against brutish and bullish behavior both in the Body, the family and our institutions and where we clearly see that no one has the backbone to stand up against this, but continue to turn a blind eye – to be liked.

Praying against critical spirit that seek to push and pull where Father has not given permission, nor has directed.

Praying that Father shines his light on all our ways (even my own )and for a straightening out of the Body. The the Body find its proper position and place , let the body parts work in sync and harmony – let each joint and member carry out the role it was created to do and refrain from crushing other parts. Let the eye be the eye. Let the mouth be the mouth, stop vying for things you were never created to do and will never do. Let go and Let God.

Praying for soundness, protection of the mind, soul and spirit. Break the spirit of divination, control, chaos, disobedience and sorcery. Let God’s people go.

Finally,

Thanking God for the many unnamed, untitled, good Samaritans amongst us who continue to show the Father heart of God.

Thanking God for those ministries and individuals that are not afraid to challenge the destructive spirits and dictates that are not of God.

Thanking God for the ministry of healing and the many ways he continues to demonstrate its working power in our lives.

The Year of Our Lord

AN IMPOSITION

I have been trying to share this word for two days.. and old hairy legs and his cohorts have not been happy. The amount of attack and onslaught I have received within a hour of yesterday morning is very interesting indeed. Part of what I wrote at 4:00 am yesterday morning has also disappeared… which is unusual. But I will not be defeated. Here goes:

For those of you who watched Fuel the Fire a ministry platform put on by All Nations Church, Wolverhampton ,UK on Friday last week (4/12/2020) would have been blessed. Pastor Steven and team had invited Bob Sorge to share a word and what a word.

My own word is entirely separate and came to me on the 3/12/2020 but it sets the context of why I was moved to share and to write at this juncture.

One of the things Bob asked is what is your love language with God- essentially how does God speak to you ? Or indeed  how do you speak to God? 

Our own Pastor in his own messages over the past few months has been urging us to carve out some quiet time to speak to and hear from God – it is a must…. we must hear from God ourselves. 

As a minister since 2004, Father has been using me to encourage those who will receive, about some of these necessities and disciplines including ensuring you write down your vision and dreams. I heard him audibly give that instruction : ‘tell them Linda, it is as they write they will run… ‘ . So my mandate is to speak and to write. I pray you too will run.

One of my own love language is that I dream and I see and hear. I see the word become flesh as people speak or minister. By his blessed Holy Spirit, He speaks to my heart and in pictures.

Whilst I was in the wilderness in 2007, I saw the word of God ( a bible ) in a three dimensional tangible way – it was like bread.

This (as shared history) sets some of the context of what I want and wanted..to share.

It was last week …before Bob’s preach, I think it was 3/12/2002 after one of the members of our early morning prayers gave a devotion. As he shared or prayed , ( I didn’t have time to share what I was seeing, but I saw… ). I saw an individual in front of the throne room, covered in splashes of blood. I saw and heard the meaning of the word SUPERIMPOSE : I saw it happening. I saw if you like a picture of what happens when someone approaches the throne that a blood stained Jesus is superimposed over that person.

I am not sure whether I will do justice to what has been revealed in this one write up, but I pray you will get something out of it to lift your faith and give you increase confidence and wisdom as you pray. May it fan your flames. May you see.

The dictionary defines the word SUPERIMPOSED or su·per·im·pos·ing as follows : to impose, place, or set over, above, or on something else. It means to put or join as an addition.

Father began to take me to the key scriptures. One being 2 Corinthians 5:21

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him

He took our place and what an imposition!!

I think Hebrews says it well when Paul preached.  He preached 

But we see Jesus , who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

He took the blows. When he died we died. When he arose , we arose. If it wasn’t for Jesus and what he suffered on the cross in our place, we could not approach the throne of grace. God is a holy God and we (born in sin and shapened in iniquity) would be consumed by his holiness. God, superimposes Jesus on us when we approach ie He sees Jesus when we come to him – he looks beyond our faults and sees – the spotless Lamb, His son.

Listen to this beautiful nugget from the scriptures :

Both he that sanctifieth (JESUS) and they who are sanctified (US) are one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call us brethren.

He (Jesus), did not take on him the nature of angels, BUT he took on him, the seed of Abraham (our likeness- man – us ). Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren that he might be amerciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God. Hebrews 2:16. A high priest stands in the gap and speaks on behalf of the people and the nations.

What are the things pertaining to God? WE ARE……!!!! Including issues of righteousness, justice, fairness – atonement and sacrifice, restoration, health and well-being. The substitution and exchange happened, so that we could be saved and in turn (as priest and kings of the most High God) save Adam’s fallen race from all manner of sins and diseases.

It is this knowledge that brings quickening and enabling power. How can you not become alive and shout it from the roof tops.

Can I also say that the enemy of soul also superimposes to enlarge, distort and smoke screen and I have seen that many years ago in a dream. Have you seen the picture that is often circulated by Walt Disney or people that make cartoons. You know the picture of a lion projected and roaring but when you look behind the screen it is a little frightened mouse…. This (God has shown me ) is the picture of the adversary. He is like a puff of smoke, he has no substance . He tries to superimpose, smother and cover us with his death stroke, to silence or in an attempt to fool us, or to scare us.

But we see Him and are not afraid.

Let him bring on his greatest arsenals or continue to sling mud, we are covered by the blood Jesus. He stands in our place and no weapon formed against us shall prosper. It is also okay to cry.

Thanks be to God, Jesus, is our all sufficiency, our substance and covering . Oh if we could only grasp that vision when we pray, I believe it would help us get over our doubts, fears and the many mealy mouth issues and obstacles we sometimes allow to get in front of the necessary work which we must do.

The Bible says, as he is, so are we in this world. Let him (Jesus ) be your shield and guide.

When we pray and pray for others and all kinds of things – we cannot, not be moved…. Praying is not, nor should be a tick box, mechanical rote exercise – the piercing and desire for change, causes pangs , things to move as it did/does our Lord.

Let us Pray ….!!! Let us see ourselves cloaked and covered as Jesus and by Jesus, through his shed blood which speaks louder than the blood of Abel.

There is so much more to ponder on this word but for now let me leave you with this and to guide prayers:


• Pray under his covering and the delegated responsibility given to us by the exchange at the cross.

• Pray because we have been accepted in the beloved

*Pray because we are heirs and joint heirs with Jesus and he has given us dunamis ,(not Walt Disney or smoke , bells and whistles) but real power.

• Pray knowing that he is our mediator , he is standing in the gap. His life has been superimposed on us and he remains our faithful high priest.


Finally (and thank God for this ) God doesn’t see us or our many failings, but as we approach him faithfully, confessing our sins , he sees Jesus and then all manner of things concerning us are always : YES AND AMEN .

A prayer for missions

A prayer for missions – December 2020 – Linda J UK

Father , great is your faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies we see, thou changes not, thy compassion they fail not, has thou hast been though forever will be. (Extract from a song)

Yes, Lord you are the same God of Abram, Isaac and Jacob and your seed remains on the earth. Your desire has always been to have a people for yourself- a people who love you unconditionally, nations who bow to ‘you’ in reverence – not seeking a Saul, but having a heart like David and Paul, in relation to righteousness and missions.

Lord you set the boundaries of the territories where men should live; You designed and devised the color and nature of our skin and our languages. Lord I believe each nation has an assignment and destiny in you, but many are still asleep to righteousness.

We cry AWAKE.

Lord, you will have a remnant through every tongue and tribe. This I have seen. In this hour we pray that your word touches the far reaches of the earth, even the hidden tribes.

Lord, Your word says that this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to the ends of the earth and then the end shall come – help us to get up and Go. Lord your word says that at your name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess you as Lord. You promise that if men call on you , repent from their sins and wicked ways, you will hear from heaven and heal the land. This is the message we must preach.

Today Lord, we come for healing and restoration for the many parts of our world. Parts where seeds have been planted and going down deep taking root. We pray for just the right balance of irrigation from your servants. We pray that nothing will be disturbed or forced into being before its time. We pray that all will be done to the honor and glory of your name.

Lord, we acknowledge that we can do nothing of our selves but through your power and spirit and might we can do all things. Use us.

We can do all things through our prayers and through our brothers and sisters who go to plough the field and scatter the good seed on the land. We are all part of one body – you have taught us through your son David that both he that goes and he that stays behind, are part of the joy when souls are won. We rejoice in all you have done and are doing through the seed.

Lord your word says , Paul planted , Apollos watered but you (and only you) give the increase. Help us not to merchandise the flock , count or seek aggrandisement for our numbers or fish caught . We know this can bring pride and takes focus from you . You are the accountant and keeper of the books and ledgers …Multiply all our efforts as we tryst with your blessed Holy Spirit in prayers and sacrifice. Let us see your goodness always in the land of the living.

We pray for strength for all the fledging ministries just starting out. We pray also for those that have put their trust in you these many years crying on their knees and hidden in closets. We pray for those who have seen your provision but who may also have suffered loss. Strengthen and encourage Lord. Remind them that you do all things well.

In a time of shaking , let men and women and children who wait for your law, not lose hope. You are the light in the darkness and it remains. , Continue to dispel all our doubts and fears.

Lord we pray for individual ministers called out and going out in your name. Let them/us always remember who sent us and that you will always provide for and qualify the call.

Lord, you feed the sparrow . Make provision for these loved ones both spiritual and physical. Give them true manna from heaven – manna that if a man eats will never be hungry . Give them the true water of life that if a man drinks , he will never thirst.

Let there be cups full of blessings forever running over and touching lives.

Lord when some trust in chariots and horses or football stars or teams… let our total dependency be on you. Help us to be good stewards of the manifold blessings you have given us. Not for lip service or to please men, but in singleness of heart, let us do of your good pleasure.

Lord your eyes run to and fro the whole earth on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect before you . You will fight the many battles , the physical, spiritual , financial and societal battles. We have and will sign on the dotted line with you. We are part of the eternal covenant. We know some have not yet resisted to blood, that greater battles are coming and we need to be wise. We know that we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood, but principalities and powers, rulers of darkness , spiritual wickedness in high places.

Help us to stand.

Bring down these demonic cohorts in your mighty name. We place Satan under our feet and we crush and bruise his head today as you have given us authority to do so.

Lord, see the fields are white ready for harvest . You first showed us. You have said : It is time. We see your church reforming , resetting , a warrior bride ; We are ready to fight . We have our army boots on ready to stand shoulder to shoulder and for the sake of your name.

We declare today and every day that ‘so mightily grows your word, and prevails .

We wont be cowed, nor silenced in spreading and sharing your heart or your word. Your word is prevailing in market places, school rooms, ivory towers, palace and parliaments. Your word prevails when planted rightly in the hearts of men. Wake us up Blessed Holy Spirit with the word of God in our hearts in our minds and on our lips and for the saving of souls.

We have no other argument , we have no other plea, it is enough that you died and that you died to set all men free.

NOT SCHUMACHER, HAMILTON OR MARADONNA, BUT JESUS CHRIST SUPER STAR !!!

‘Who being the brightness of his glory and the express image of his person and upholding all things by the word of his power’ Hebrews 1:3

I have been studying and reflecting on the Names and attributes of God. As I have done so Father has spoken to me.

On Sunday the 15th November, I saw a picture of Lewis Hamilton on top of one of his cars. He was getting applaud for his achievement in the sport. I understand it was his 7th world title and was indeed his fourth title in a row. As I looked at him with his arms lifted up, I saw the figure and meaning of ‘a victor’ – most importantly I saw our victor, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus was our prophet, priest and king standing on the hill of Calvary – the hand of God …with arms stretched and hands raised, albeit in pain, for us.

I saw the shadow of his wings and which we can now rest safe and secure knowing that He measured up, so we too can wear a crown.

The Bible says some some trust in chariots and horses ( ) even putting their trust in men and women or denominations, but we (as called out burning ones) we trust in the Name of the Lord. Some trust in sport cars, idolizing men of stature like 007 and the now late, Maradona, but we trust in and worship Jesus – the son of the living God.

Of course we grieve with those that grieve and know the pain of losing loved ones, but there is one greater than they and we are told not to idolize or worship men. We worship only Jesus.

Jesus, the brightness and brilliance of our father glory. Father has shown me that when we as Christians or individuals idolize men, humans or things made with hands, by default we devalue and demote ourselves. I say this because each and everyone of us is ‘a first’ to our Father. There isn’t another copy like you or me as our DNA attests. The Bible tells us the very hairs of our individual heads are numbered.

Men and women revere these sports men for their game or prowess during their time on earth or their time on the silver screen. But our adulation is and has to be to our God and his Christ. The eternal son of God – soon to return.

Let me tell you – there is none like him. He is the first, the last , he is the first born of the dead. The grave did not hold him . He was not subject to disease or decay. He was the perfect lamb. The perfect sacrifice without spot or blemish.

Know this also and in a time of peril and storm :

Jesus is ahead of the game.

He has already won the race

When he died, we died

When he rose, we rose,

When he won , we won.

We have been made victors in his name.

Right now, this Jesus, the son of God, is standing in the gap ever making intercession for us in the throne room of God. Right now, this Jesus is squaring things up, to take us to our eternal home.

He is our victor, the only one we should worship. He and only He , will help us cross the finish line.

Jesus: the brightness and brilliance of our fathers glory

Let him shine through us and be our guide and our light.

Trust fully in the effectiveness of our prophet priest king

He is the sympathizing jesus

He has more than 7 titles (go look them up ) and we are all complete in him

Let him infuse and he enthuse us with the power of his Holy Spirit so that death won’t sting and we can have an overcoming life.

In the Year of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Just Like Our Father

I saw two pictures this week and received a confirming word which I believe is a word from the Lord in its entirety. May you receive it with grace.

My daughter and I was relaxing on the sofa just after the evening news. Nowadays we don’t watch much TV, but I was led to say just see what is on on the other side.

There was a real life documentary of a shepherding family – a mother and father with 9 (yes 9….) beautiful children. The producers had been followed for a series of months – this being the second sequel. The youngest child was about 4 and the eldest looked about 16. There was a mixture of gender.

It was a beautiful program to watch as the mother of the family had allowed the children to grow in competence in doing things on the farm and even dealing with the births and deaths of the lambs. One sheep had died possibly because she had wandered off alone and had drunk polluted water but she was still numbered and being accounted for.

The innocency of the children and the dexterity of how they went about their tasks was mesmerizing. Most importantly was a section where the whole family sat down together to eat outside . As the children sat and listen mum and dad recounted all their birth stories ie how they came into the world, the time of day and the events that happened during delivery. Each child listened pleased and proud as punch. It was clear they had heard the story before but they reveled in mum and dad telling them again. There was a point when one little girl (the middle child) shouted out ‘you’ve missed me’. Sure enough they had, but there was an affective story also to tell on her behalf and to confirm her identity.

The most beautiful thing for me was the tender heart of the father of the family – how he had gathered his brood around him and how he spoke tenderly and affectionately to his wife and to his children. This is what God intended both for the physical family of God and the spiritual family of God.

I came to bed that night and I cried my heart out for the memory of what I had seen and for the heart of our Father. The image has not left me.

As I prepared my prayer ministry for the next day Father brought Ezekiel 34 which was a rebuke of the shepherds who had not looked after the sheep. He continued to bring me word this very week about the sheepfold (two days later). He highlights that the flock includes lambs that are frail, weak and unsteady and some barely able to walk. Others are deep in pain. A few pregnant and others nursing young. Each and every one of us who call on his name can identify within this fold.

I am led to write this today for several reasons :

He has asked the to write

He wants you to know that the very hairs of your head is numbered and he sees you as special

He wants you to know you have an identity with him if you are part of his family

He is the good Shepherd and he will provide ointment for your souls and remove all he ticks and brambles that have kept you bound.

His desires his to protect you from the wolf and the roaring and raving lion

In terms of those called to minister and to be shepherds, mothers and fathers of the flock there is an additional word too :

We see in a number of the prophetic books how God condemns Israel’s ministers because they didn’t meet the needs of the sheep under their care. He spoke his displeasure through both Ezekiel, Isaiah and Jeremiah. (See Ezekiel 34:4, 6) See Isaiah 53:6).

Thus saith the Lord , i even I will search my sheep and seek them out. I will deliver them out of all the places where they have been scattered in teh cloudy and dark day. I will feed them in good pasture and upon the high mountains and they shall lie down in a good fold and be fat. I will judge between cattle and cattle and my people shall no. more be a prey .

I pray today that we can be like little children and receive the word wherever it may apply to us and so that we don’t lose out.

I believe I share his heart when i say ,our Father’s desire is for each one of us to lie down beside still waters and to be led in the paths of righteousness for his name sake.

You climbed onto the cross, soaked in our shame.

Your joy was Isaac’s strength a foreshadowing of trust and obedience

Yours was the promise and confidence in our Father to never leave or forsake, but to bring dead things back to life.

Willing and obedient you were ,

Just to save me

Knowing that without you I would be lost

Knowing that without you I could do nothing

Praying now for continued protection against the King of the Amalekites

Those spiritual hosts of wickedness that continue to seek to gag and silence your seed and to lay claim to your throne as it did from the foundations. Our fight is not against flesh and blood but we pray may the lineage of King Agag and his cohorts be annihilated in the power of your Holy Name.

We declare that : A king , (the stem and root of Jesse , the Branch who is you Jesus), shall rule in righteousness.

We are your witnesses.

We honor and adore you as we see the spirit of lordship upon you and your people, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might , the spirit of knowledge and the reverential fear and righteous indignation.

We thank you because you are a just God and a savior. Willing that none who call on your name should perish.

We thank you because you have not judged after the sight of your eyes, neither did you reprove us after the hearing of your ears, but with righteousness you judge us and with fairness and equity you brought and will bring, justice for the meek of the earth.

We know you are our King supreme, heavens victor and darling.

We live because you live and was victorious.

You shall smite the earth with the rod of your mouth and with the breath of your lips you will slay the wicked.

LIGHT OUT OF DARKNESS

It is the same God, who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of his glory in the face of Jesus Christ – 2 Corinthians 4:7

Father we thank you . Thank you that you purposed to bring us back to yourself at at a time when we were teetering on a precipice. Thank you for the light that you sent and beamed down on us awakening us from the dark places of the earth.

Lord you desired to have a people called by your Name and you have accepted even me into that Beloved company. Your word said that now we are teh children of God and whilst it does not yet appear what we shall be , we know that we shall be like you as we shall see you as your are. We long for that day. The day that Isaiah saw. The day when your train filled the temple showing your majestic glory and forcing iniquity to stop her mouth.

Lord because of you and us (your purchased possession) , No weapon that has been formed against us shall prosper. Every back biting or evil tongue that has risen up against us we condemn as your servants. Our righteousness is of you. We did not come in our own strength but you called, you saved, you sanctified and you made us your own.

You are the God who rules and reign and determines the borders of our territory . You are the God that open and no man shuts or closes and no man dare open. You are the God that sets one up and another down and you use us for your purposes here on earth with our permission.

Father, you know the heart of every man. Nothing is hid from you. You do not judge outward appearances but you judge righteously. You are a fair God. You mete out just weights and just balances and you remember the poor and the beggar from the dung hill.

Lord i trust you and know that you will bring everything concerning those who call on your name to pass. We called. You answered . You have given us a resting place and your plans for us are Yes and Amen to bring us to an expected end.

Nothing takes you by surprise. You are the fairest and the fairest of ten thousand to our souls.

And so as i close this time of prayer , i thank you for your grace and your wonder working power in the children of men . May your word reach hearts that are open. May change comes from a greater realization of your ever presence, your omnipotent and omniscience – all seeing , all knowing and with all power to do the impossible.

Your daughter Linda J

PEDDLERS OF PERFUME

‘…..we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life’ 2 Corinthians 2:14

It has been a week of birthday celebrations as i mark the 21st year of my second daughter and in Christ and for that I give God praise. My daughter received a host of presents including an expensive bottle of Chanel perfume. When we unwrapped this particular gift we laughed and shared how one particular teacher of hers, a perfume connesieur from Paris would be particularly impressed . This teacher would often comment on the perfume my daughter sometimes wore (not intentionally i am sure but a trite disparaging when she would comment on that not being real perfume – or one she knew…! Notwithstanding, we love her to bits. As a piano teacher there is no one better. My daughter has excelled under the tutelage and this teacher doesn’t miss a bad note – be that in the olfactory or auditory sense.

As I sat in my quiet time this morning (oh how I need them right now) and waiting for the word of the Lord; this word came to me.

Paul wrote ‘…..we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life’ 2 Corinthians 2:14

It is a word for the occupation of everyone as the Apostle Paul again puts it : called to be saints. We are all told to go…

As evangelists, heralding and heckling our craft in the market place, on street corners or even in our writings , we give off a certain scent; we are either the scent of life to those who would chose life, or the scent of death, to those who are perishing and desire to stay that way.

The children of God should have a different smell and scent about them in the things they say and do. It should ooze from our very pores. We are not talking peddling perfume per se, but there is a deeper revelation that Father brings from his word. We are not contrasting perfumes houses or those scents brought from the local Wilko , Asda or a Sainsburys … which (on a continuum) would be a metaphor for cheap grace peddled by a mans name, ministry label, packaging, branding for pecuniary reasons leading many to the pit of hell.

No..!!!

Called to be saints, should know the difference between the pure and profane. We should peddle purity in all we say and do. We are talking the scent, SME all, manifestation of the genuine spirit of grace , truth and holiness oozing from our very pores – made possible…. by our spending time and rubbing shoulders with the one and only living God. The God who has broken down the wall of partition allowing us to see to know the difference and says Come. The God who breaks down all the opposing auras and aromas through our obedience and sacrifice, through our daily and thorough washing and cleansing in the blood of Jesus Christ , his son.

PRAYER

Father, we thank you for your word and that you continue to want to speak to us in ways we can easily understand. Forgive us when we have been wanton and gone away from you doing things and saying things that brings a stench, a displeasing aroma to your nose. Lord , we want all our glorying to be of you – you purchased us with a great price – the shed blood of your son, Jesus Christ . Lord your word tells us that he made himself of no reputation, but took the form of a servant and went the way of the cross for us. Lord, As we walk about proclaiming to be your representatives in this late and dark hour, let the scent and savor that comes from us brings life to those who desire life. Take away our designer labels, wrappings and labels and the things that have no eternal value. Let nothing of us get in the way of anyone coming through to the true and living God. Lord help us to go and to peddle but to peddle your way, your truth and your life.
