The Landlord III

By Pastor Linda J

The landlord is no longer communicating with me directly but going through the agent – the agent as many know  in housing matters is an intermediary who has the landlord’s interest at heart and as the main priority .
It started well, but as a 1st time landlord, I think he was warned by the agents that is not how to do things. Agents naturally become worried that if tenant and landlord speak, they are cut out and will loose their monthly fee. So I do understand.

I am however sad and feel let down, as I see it as a breach of trust. He had shook hands with me and given me his word to come back and do the lawn and garden in October. He hasn’t showed nor has answered my calls. There are a few things that now need doing.

I still love the house , see it as a blessing from God and will cherish it like my own, but I sense I am being stonewalled. 

I will write another word on ‘stonewalling’ as it is deep and I am picking up something three dimensional in the spirit. For now (and this morning),  I am led to compare the earthly landlord to the landlord of the whole earth, Our Father. I hear rhythms and begin to flow and start with:

Our Father’s promises are Yes and Amen. He is no respecter of persons. He is faithful and true. What he says He will do. Our Father sent Jesus to break the curse and remove the wall of partition, so we can go straight to him in prayer. We have an intermediary, (Blessed Holy Spirit) given freely without money or price and acting on our behalf and  at all times.

There are times we feel stonewalled, but it is often as a result of our own sins, or inability or unwillingness to hear the last instruction from our Lord.

What we can be sure about is that Father’s love never fails even at these times. He has given us his Word and through his Son, Jesus Christ. Through the agent of the Holy Spirit, (the manifest presence of the Godhead, now here on earth )His hands of protection is ever with us, on us and around us.

The landlord of the whole earth, will meet every need. He has made provision and will continue to make provision for us. He has given us everything pertaining to godliness and instructions with regards to laying a foundation, building and keeping house.

Prayer

Father I thank you because in each situation, area of disappointment you are teaching me and showing me your heart.

I know I can cleave to you , to call on you at anytime and you will give me an answer of peace. Your word to me is to fear not as it is your will to give not just a house or a patch of land , but the kingdom.

You will honour your contract , visit my garden, nurture and water the good seeds that I have sown. You will continue to show me the paths of life, with you is wisdom and knowledge and treasures forevermore.

‘STOP THE TRAFFIC’ by Pastor Linda J Clifford-Hayes

I wrote this  Prayer on the 22/1/16 almost a year ago… the issue is still alive and relevant and was dramatised in Silent Witness in BBC1 on the TV on Monday and Tuesday night.
Father , in the name of Jesus , we come

Lord we join our hearts and minds against the atrocities of trafficking and the merchandising of your people.

Lord our world has become commercial and harsh, rather than caring and feeling.

All run to excess.
Lord, we have lost sight of who we are and what we should mean to each other.

We are a people purchased by your blood

How could we then barter with life in such a cruel calculated way.

Lord, you said that the heart of man is desperately wicked who can know it?

Sadly, We have come to know it –

We see this ‘wickedness’ in the crime of trafficking,

We see this wickedness ,when children, women and men are duped and hoodwinked

When they are blindfolded and moved many miles from who and what they know.

We see lives being gambled and lost through storms and seas and atrocities.

Jarring journey’s Destined for death – spiritual , physical psychological death.

Moved, manoeuvred and manipulated towards an ‘n’ point called Nowhere.

No status, no recognition, no papers ….nothing, nobody….no one cares.

Stolen id, ego, hid, lost identity.

Piled like cargo, locked in , windowless vehicles, blacked out chambers, houses, factories, cellars

plied with substances to soften resistance and increase dependency

plied with work that never ends

Pressed and pressure into acts for the sadistic & God forbidden pleasure of others –

left to cry ,to lie, to bleed , to die on flea infested floors

to cushion and line the pockets of masters and mistresses

Dear Lord have mercy.
Open the hearts and minds of kings and governors to enact rules and regulations that safeguard and protect against this evil. Stamp it out.

Raise up counsellors, shepherds after your own heart to heal the wounds and restore all that is taken.

holy father, bring light out of this forced darkness.

Let the pain and seeds of trafficking bring forth seeds of compassion , new life , love and understanding in foreign lands.

I almost forgot who I Am

Pastor Linda Hayes
January 2017
Written under the unction of Scribe & Prophet

I let you define me by your prejudice and assumptions, your lies.

I almost forgot, I was born with a mandate, to make a difference, to stand with my head (sometimes natty), but high.

I came from a dynasty of prophets, priests and kings – with the rule and sceptre already in hand.

I let your cruel jibing, your dissing and disrespect, crush and dismember me,
I gave you too much space to try and define me,
You turned me this way and that
Trying to analyse me
until….. I remembered why I came!

I came to set a standard
To make a difference
To speak on behalf of the oppressed
I came to say ‘do you know what it/that feels like?’
Do you know who you are?Whose I am? 

Step in my/their shoes before you jump on that hobby horse and pontificate about the things YOU hold dear
The things you hang onto that choke me, silence me,
The things that brought me to tears.

I came to stand in the gap, to turn my back, my cheek to everything that you do and say against me

If my words, my prose, my poise disturb you,
If they touch deep down and hurt,
Ask yourself why, and Here is an answer: The spirit searches the deep things yea, the deep things of the heart .

“When? you say…. when have I.?

By your silent rejection, your scorning and scoffing
By your stiff-necked, head held high,
Pretending not to see me or greet me
But googling me, watching me, monitoring my each and every move

Hugging me with your cold hearted, hard hearted, self
touching, but not feeling, nothing there real
A religious, impersonal, Facebook, texting, parody.
A peeper, a watcher, operating in a spiritual deviant void.

Devoid  of flesh and blood  God-purposed connections. 

Eyes that don’t see, hearts that cant feel, mouths that don’t speak truth.

Tittilated by anything otherworldly. Passing it on, passing it on, but burying the Truth. 

Did you know, I am somebody’s mother, somebody’s daughter? The child of a king?
I came (nay was sent)bearing seeds and bringing good gifts, but these you rejected.

Your house shall remain desolate. You are without excuse.

You  quelled the spirit of joy and the spirit of laughter.
You gave  grey days, heartache and much sadness.

Be careful when you turn tail,
turn coat, against me….
There are others with me – an army fighting for and on, my behalf

Do you know? I almost forgot who I am…!
Then I remembered
I came to forgive …..

Just a little fish in a big pond by Pastor Linda J     Jan 2017 

I just had a prophetic word sent me, all the way from the other side of the world and from Father’s throne. It is good as I am seeking his face for guidance.   It is a personal word, the prophet told me , Father explicitly mentioned me by name .!! but I feel led to share the bits where there may also be ‘meat’ for you. 

The essence of the word and warning is as follows, there is wisdom in being a little fish in a big pond and moving in and out, in Father’s timing. 

The Lord would have a safe place for his own. It may not be with the crowd or the majority, but it will be a place where the temperature, environment is right, where his own , will swim and not sink. 

Stay in the environment he has designed for you.  Don’t  strive to be a ‘big fish’ or come to surface prematurely or the ‘fat cats’ might get hold of you.

Big fish can easily be caught by those who sit on thrones i.e.  principalities and powers of the air, gigantan monstrosities on the left and on the right. 

Small fish who remain hidden and under the rock, can make timely   manoeuvres that make it impossible to be predicted, bashed on the head, manipulated or brought down by dark forces. 

Things may not seem totally clear right now , but that is of Father’s  choosing and for your protection.  The word says: Give respect to the dark places of the earth and that there is a purpose for everything under the sun

Our Father sees the whole picture of what is unfolding and the attempts to crush and sabotage. He is covering you.  His divine protection remains; his timing has (and will continue) to outsmart the enemy. 

He said it before and He says it again ‘He (will) disappoint the devices of the crafty , so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise. He shows that they continue to ‘ meet with darkness in the day time and grope in the noon day and at night, but He saves the poor (His daughter Linda and you) from the sword, from the mouth and from the hand of the Mighty‘.  

We can continue to swim/operate and in safety.   How wonderful is that  …! 
 

HAPPY NEW YEAR

The significance of 2017 – a reminder from the Lord
Ten is the number of law and order, government and restoration

Seven is the number of perfection

Seventeen is the number of spiritual order 

The Lord says to write “everything is falling into place – divine order is being established despite what we see with our eyes – the government is on His shoulder. He is making the rough places plain, and the crooked places straight”
