Father’s heart – the cutting edge

Just had a word in my spirit :

“If we continue to make the church like the world (with smoke, bells, whistles) and the adulation of superstars, we lose the ‘cutting edge’ necessary to respond in crises and disasters”

My addition : We need to go back to the basics – heart ministries. Off the platform on your knees ministries, wailing ministries. Sons snd daughters of God who don’t just flannel, speak rhetoric or ‘professionalees’ (sic).

It’s not about training , certificates, academic qualifications or courses you have attended , but it is about heart. Father’s heart.

We need sons and daughters of the King who are not afraid to weep from porch to altar, to seek the face of God, to alert the people and the nations of the time it really is, to take stock ourselves and to show the people the errors of their ways, before the doors of mercy closes.

Father’s heart is soft and entreatable. He patiently waits for ‘the whosoever’ to come in, but …there will come a day when there is deadlock, the cut off point – the point of no return.

Get in.
Get right.
Get ready ….

…..before it’s too late.

I couldn’t sleep last night and was praying for the Afghan people and the Taliban. I don’t know how or what to pray right now, but the spirit within me is moved and my heart aches for those caught up in the distress .

I woke up and continue to contemplate how I might align with the Holy Spirit and others to pray and with power. I see on the news that the deadline has been set
and time is running out. It is clear that ‘man’ has his limitations can be blindside and wrong footed , but Father , Jehovah God, remains in control .

I get two significant thoughts/words from my reading as I sit and wait ‘tongues of fire’ and ‘flight path’. I will ponder some more and write again later . For now, praying (and in the spirit) for peace and for a peace maker to stand up in that chaos on both sides.

The bible says “Blessed, are the peacemakers because they shall be called the children of God Matthew 18: May the children of God rise up in Afghanistan .

We need to respect and love others and do (or not do) as the case might be, unto them as we would like done (or not done), unto us.

Someone wrote elsewhere today , about love and yes If only we could love like our Father. He was love personified . We thank him for he first loved us. Giving us ‘gentiles’ access. Without this love and free choice & access to eternal life we could not escape eternal damnation even if we wanted to. Instead we would be left to run the gauntlet , beaten mercilessly like we see in the current openly, televised pictures of one group’s attempt to maim, demoralise and prevent the free choice and way of escape , of another. This ought not to be so.

Let God be true and every dictator a liar.

Father has always taught me ‘as in the physical , so in the spiritual ‘ ie what we see happening around us and on the world’s stage , is a message and a warning . The clock is ticking.

May what is seen and heard, prick and convict both the victim and the victimiser in every circumstance .

May it also keep those watching on the fences, open. Open in heart mind, spirit soul and body to do of his good pleasure.

I declare today (as the scripture lauds) that saviours will come from mount Zion. That despite the oppression and turmoil we see, there will be a remnant and from every nation and people group.

I declare that the crooked places will be made straight and the rough places smooth. Every tyrant, abuser, usurper over Father’s flock and heritage, will come down in the name of Jesus. ❤️

Evangelist Linda J Clifford-Hayes


Lord, your word says that you will keep them in perfect peace whose minds are stayed on you. Help my focus today to remain on you and in whatever the circumstance.

Help me not to be moved by the chitter chatter, disdain or dictates of fickle men or women, who come and go as they please and have no abiding city. It is you , Lord that have been ever constant and faithful in my life, seeking out the best for me and at my every turn. You have been my kinsman redeemer, my Belharoi , my intimate friend and I praise you.

I know you and you know my name. You have called me daughter. You have called me beautiful. You have caused me to shine.

Thank you for your promises which have been yes and amen in my life. Thank you for the multiplicity of blessings that you have bestowed on me over the years , the open doors and the access. Thank you for your abiding presence , for the times when I don’t (and didn’t know) how to pray , it is you who has taught me.

Lord, you have been a constant guide; you have been my shield and buckler. At times my only friend.

Thank you, for you have given me wisdom to know what to do and when. You have revealed to me the secrets of night and what can happen and is happening, under the cover of darkness.

Continue to shine your light so that I can walk circumspectly, not as a fool but as wise redeeming the time because the days are so evil. It is you who who has taught my hands to war and my fingers to fight. My enemies have only been able to go so far and because of you – many you have silenced and removed.

I have always known in the difficult times Lord, that all things were working out for my good and I live to ever testify.

I praise you this morning, from the bottom of my heart for seeing me through the horrible pit and of sickness and disease. For bringing me up and out as pure gold. For healing and restoring me. I have seen how you give back stolen years. So many beautiful things you do and have done, that my heart is so full , I just cannot explain, or tell it all.

Lord, I praise you.

At times of distress I have quieted myself like a weaned child, but my faith has remained strong. I have not gone to bed hungry. Those who know your name have been an encouragement to me and have blessed me far more than I could have ever thought or could ask. You know each and every one of them and their kindness towards me.

Lord, I love you and am jealous for you. I love to see and hear when you are lifted up. I love when you are given 1st place in the life of another. The true worship of you is oh so wonderful to behold and I love to worship to dance and to praise you. You move in us so deep that the dross is removed, the chains break and we are changed in an instance . We overflow with holy passion. Only those who really know you, understand my heart for worship and for peace. There is no drug or drink on earth that can compete with the joy and satisfaction and peace that you bring. 

If only men would seek your face . If only men would praise you.

Lord, I know you are not done with me yet and I will spend my last breath praising you. My fingers will continue to war and to fight. You have brought me with a price . I declare that the work you have started in me, that you are able to complete and finish it and up to the day of the return of your son, (my brother, my Lord and Father ) Jesus Christ.

In the meantime, every day you have afforded me is for your glory. Whatever my hands finds to do (as this morning ) let it be done to the honor and glory of your name.

You have told me that in quietness and in rest shall be my strength. I thank you for this pregnant pause.

You have guided me thus over the years and will continue to guide and order my steps. You have upheld me. I have seen and felt your power and glory and know you as the living, interpersonal God – I want to know you more.

I am not ashamed to own you.

I will worship you with every fiber of my being.

I am not afraid of the faces, actions or opinions of men.

I have faced death many times , seen its face, but I am not afraid of it nor of dying.

In the meantime (and whilst you have given me breath and my faculties are in tact) I will continue to hold onto your word which remains a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Let me never let go of your right hand of righteousness which continues to give me the victory.

As I come down and close, take again hold of

my ears, my eyes, my mouth , my heart , indeed my pen…. let them be used for you, your kingdom and for your glory.

Your daughter

Thought that would get your attention ….🙃

The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork , day unto day uttereth speech (saying something) and night unto night showeth knowledge (dreams and visions) . There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard, their line is gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world (anointed scribes and intercessors). In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun which is like a ‘joyous’ bridegroom (I’m getting married in the morning …) coming out of his chamber and rejoiced as a strong man to run a race (our turn…!!!) Scipture taken from Psalms 19 verses 1-6 but emphasis mine.

Sometimes I just get the scripture in my spirit and then when I start to write., the rest comes. I hadnt planned this and I dont intend to write much on this piece as the above , I feel, is enough and I hope it blesses you this morning – Psalms 19 is one of my favorites and it has a beautiful rhythm . You can actually see what the psalmist saw.

Don’t forget this season is the year of the breath the mouth and the sound ‘pey’. You have to say something…. !!!! King David & the Apostle Paul would say you have to do something ie ‘run your race’.

Let it be said of us, (our generation) that ‘ so mightily grew the word of God and prevailed’ . Acts 19:20

Have a great day and God bless you .

(working title may change)

Last week my steps were ordered to the point I spent time with two people who were not Christians, but men and women of the world. We were similar age group as we shared over lunch, but one was involved in reading tarot cards and the other had new age ideas. Each shared their own lifestory of exploitation and oppression and how they had made choices and changes. It became apparent in discussion that I used to frequent the same nightclubs as one of them….It is often fun reminiscing of ones youth and I always have to be careful that I do not endorse that earlier way of ‘being’ as the thing I would now encourage. What was marvelous, was that I saw the open door… an opportunity. Letting them go first…without any judgment on their current activity , I shared, contrasted and punctuated the discussion with my own testimony of the saving power of Jesus salvation and how my life had changed from the early days.

Today, I am reading and reading the edited account of Charles

Spurgeon ‘ The power of Christ’s miracles’. I must have brought this book a couple of years ago, but to my shame, it is yet unread . Today I open its pages as I wait on the Lord to speak and I am extremely blessed as it also brings me back to the events of last week and the issue of judgement, mercy and saving grace.

I have just read a wonderful piece about the justification of the man in the New Testament picking up his bed and walking albeit against the judgement of the Pharisees and the social mores of the day. (See John 5:7 and onwards) . Here the Pharisees wilfully ignored what Christ had done for the lame man in healing him, but rather swooped down and majored on the fact that the Sabbath had been broken.

I spent many years go to nightclubs and there may be many who might question whether i am saved enough or changed enough or fit their own depiction of a Christian ….. It happens… !!! I have much more to say about the many years spent in 7th day church as a Christian (some 20 years) . Pious and sincere with my long skirts….. but not knowing the God of the Bible, not knowing Jesus, nor having a relationship with the Blessed Holy Spirit.

This had been the real reason I had started to reflect this morning as I wanted to write something this weekend that would encourage others. I know many are still trapped and going round in religious circles… so to speak. I wanted to say that in this new era, we take the opportunity to find out/ know why the Lord has mandated such a pause and interrupted our plans . To not slot into the same, old same old routine, but to question what he may be saying to us individually and collectively . I will write a fuller piece and article about this , but significantly my reading brought back the conversations I had last week with the unsaved two (shared above ) ie the reflection of past times where as Spurgeon so puts it so pointedly ‘ we wrought to the will of the gentiles’ , but where there was no lasting eternal value from the fruit.

The fruit we did have in the days of the Pink Coconut… (the name of the nightclub) ……would be ‘sour grapes that set our teeth on edge’ and where (as a result) we suffered weariness , loss and much damage and where we may have said and did things where we now are very much ashamed.

But thanks be to God for Jesus and Father’s salvation, his miracle working power and that he made provision on the cross having his eye on us throughout eternity. We don’t have to stay stuck in the attractions of pink coconuts…. man made illuminations and sin, but know that he has made a way where we walk out of past difficulties and made provision where we can be saved.

It is simple (and as I said to my listeners last week) Jesus does not force himself on anyone , salvation is a free gift . I speak to both the saved and the unsaved here when I say, we. don’t have to continue to eat the sour grapes or to stay stuck in sin, sickness , sorrow, manipulation or exploitation. He that makes men whole has commanded us to take up our bed and walk. Now whatever your personal situation or angst, Come out…!!!! and my God bless you.


Lord, help me to pray . I want to first give you thanks for your saving grace and power, your witness and testimony working through us. Lord I thank you because your desire is that all who seek you find you and that as a people or a generation, our teeth do not have to be set on edge, that we don’t have to eat the sour grapes , but to know that you have given us liberty through your word to receive your saving power and your eternal salvation.

Lord we ask that you remove all man made structures that prevent people hearing, getting up and out and towards you. Thank you for you first are the author and finisher of our faith . We also thank you for those who write and have left us a legacy such as the Apostles, Spurgeon and others and so that we can learn and be stirred and to do your works in this hour.

Speak to our individual hearts right now . Let nothing be wasted or done through strife or vain glory. As we seek to explain when we minister , You Lord do not force yourself on anyone, but you are gracious , long suffering and great.

Help us to number our days so that we can apply our hearts to wisdom. Three score years and 10 you have given us and by reason of strength you have extended that. Thank you for my years.

Your desire is that all who seek you find you and that no one dies without having the opportunity to hear you.

Lord look upon our lives, our work past times and practices . Help us to be the light that shine in even nightclub darkness . Help us to help others to see that there is light and to consider their ways.

These and other mercies I ask in your precious Name.

I was having a good natter with my blood sister last evening. We were sharing about the saga of Covid and isolation. Her daughter is over from Italy and has to isolate for the whole week she is here as she is from a red country… !!!! I closed the conversation by saying ‘what a nightmare, but Jesus soon come.. !!!! ‘

This morning , I am thinking what a blessed hope – Jesus soon come… !!!! Many years ago I dreamt about the rapture . I saw the sky open . Jesus had come. Some people were ready , some were not – some of the not ready people were prominent church people. I had been shocked in the dream about this.

This morning I am also thinking in the time of Noah, they were going about their normal lives , it was raining but many people didn’t see the urgency of the situation that the door of the ark was about to close.

We can be in the same mode and attitude as the people of Noah’s day. We get used so much bad news and reports that nothing seems to stir us again. We become what I am calling ‘Covid competent’ and in our arrogance we say ‘next – bring it on’ . We can also be saying quietly under our breaths when reminded of the hour , ‘there she goes again , scare mongering, pronouncing gloom and doom … and we close down. We continue to go about our business – devoid of the urgency and reality of the time. Devoid of feeling, living recklessly and gambling the hope and salvation, that was given us at the cross . But Jesus soon come..!!

In the book of Genesis 7:17 we read these things : The flood was forty days upon the earth and the waters increased … and the waters prevailed and were increased greatly ……

In dreams, revelation and interpretation of similes and symbols, water can be symbolic for troubles and oppression. But this was an actual historic event and is also there for our learning.

It was the Apostle Paul writing to his ‘son’ Timothy in the book of 2 Timothy 3, who warned about the perils that would be coming in the last days . The chapter is worthy of review if we are in any doubt that what we are seeing in our time is not the fore telling of what was predicted long ago.

I don’t want to say much more than that today, but just feel led to just say (and using my Jamaican dialect ) “Jesus soon come”.

May the Lord help us to remain vigilant and watchful.

With Fathers richest blessings

Most of you know by now that I am a dreamer…… It is an aspect of my ministry and I cover the unfolding of the gift to me in 2004 in my first book ‘a blessing happening in our time; One of the most exciting experiences in my dreams and visions, is when I see myself preaching the gospel. It is how I have come to know that this is an aspect of my call and I need no man or woman to confirm. I say this with no intent on arrogance, rather to shame the devil who often tries to silence us press, us down or push us away from calling.

These dreams are particularly enthralling because I feel the unction and the enabling power of the Holy Spirit and the word of God flows. I have experienced (both in real and in dreams) the power the Bible talks about in preaching the gospel – it is the most beautiful experience on this earth. Divine changes occur when the gospel of the kingdom is preached.

Last night I dreamt I was at an event. I was in the middle of the room and preaching about salvation and how to obtain. I saw and heard myself choosing choice scriptures and skillfully to get the point across. I hadn’t completely finished, when an old lady touched me on the arm and said I should pray for the young people and before they left . A large number had gathered by the door , some were sitting on a fence/bench and some were passing by head down in their books or looking at their phones – many on their way to other things but very much at ease. Interestingly I noticed that many had the same lower luminous jade colored garment on – a piece of cloth tied round their lower half similar to how the man Ghandi (now deceased) would tie his lower white garment. I am deducing from this that the dream spoke of their uniformity and that they were students of a particular school and learning, but not necessarily of God.

As I moved towards them in the dream they began to disperse – like young people would of course …. !!! But a few came forward for prayer.

Whether in the dream or outside ( I cant remember) but a song came which I held onto all through the night intending to write it down and to share like I am doing now. It is a song from my childhood church days and one of the songs that had moved me towards repentance.

Thank God for the internet I found the song in its entirety this morning and it is copyrighted by Arthur J Hodge in 1923 which I have no rights to . The song goes like this:

Verse 1

There’s a line that is drawn by rejecting the Lord,

Where the call of His Spirit is lost,

And you hurry along with the pleasure-mad throng—

Have you counted, have you counted the cost?


Have you counted the cost if your soul should be lost,

Though you gain the whole world for your own?

Even now it may be that the line you have crossed—Have you counted, have you counted the cost?

Verse 2

You may barter your hope of eternity’s morn

For a moment of joy at the most,

For the glitter of sin and the things it will win—

Have you counted, have you counted the cost?

Verse 3

While the door of His mercy is open to you,

Ere the depth of His love you exhaust,

Won’t you come and be healed, won’t you whisper, “I yield—

I have counted, I have counted the cost.”

I am asking this morning that we take note of the words for ourselves and also seek to share it with at least one young person and before the door of mercy closes. The Bible warns that ‘woe to them that are at ease in Zion and trust in the mountain of Samaria. Amos 6:1 . I saw aspects of this in my dream.

The time is very late. Each one of us has been given an instruction and a responsibility of sharing the good news and the gospel. Our young people have become engrossed in other ideologies and nonchalantly gambling with their eternal destiny.

Father is depending on us. I believe , He will continue to use us and to bless us and when we use what he has placed in our hands.

Very early in the morning


“He suffered no man to do them wrong, he reproved kings for their sakes.

Psalms 105:13-16

I had this dream upon my bed . It was a strange dream. I saw a group of people in a game/gathering on a court. The dream looked like it was happening in a prison yard – it was dark. The objective appeared to be to score with the ball given you. There were lots of individuals. I had seen at the onset that there was a sound ball, one that had air for an individual to play successfully. There was a person who was doling out the balls, but I could see that this person was handing out inferior balls. There didn’t appear to be any intent or malice on her part, but it was clear she was missing it and kept handing out balls that had no air and that wouldn’t score or do the job it was meant to.

In the dream, I could see what was going on and the disadvantage for the individual . I took the initiative to seek to find the right ball ie the ball i had seen which was the correct ball for the person who was standing in turn. This was a ball with air and that could bounce and score.

I could also see on a large tray to be handed out to all something that looked like drugs and that the floor of the yard was covered with what looked like acid. I saw myself setting to with a long handed steel brush successfully removing the residue.

Interpretations belong to God, but if there is a word for us let us as individuals or the collective Body, let us seek to explore what that might be.

It was not a straight forward dream but I feel it speaks of short changing and deception. The Bible says that Father has given us everything pertaining to godliness but somewhere along the line and because of the first fruits of the fall, we can fall into bad company, into deception and can be deceived. We all are aware of the hold that drugs and narcotics have had on our generation and i need not spend too much time on this as it speaks for itself.

In the dream there were different roles and positions and so in the natural God has many individuals who are in positions of leadership or responsible for doling out resources or judgments. The Bible says we as believers we are kings and priests unto God – what a role and a blessing…!!! In the time of King David this was his role as king and he was known as a man after Gods own heart. Apart from his acknowledged sin with Bathsheba , he was known for his love of righteousness, equality, fairness and justice. 1 Chronicles 16:2-5 records it as follows

‘ ..and he dealt to everyone of Israel both man and woman to every one of loaf of bread and a good piece of flesh and flagon of wine. And appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of the Lord and to record and to thank and praise the Lord God Of Israel’ .

Here we see there was appointment and assignments for individuals as ordained – this was good provision /blessings and no one was sent away empty.

Today, in sharing this dream I seek to do a number of things . I want to give God thanks for Jesus who came to right all wrongs and to bring justice to the earth. I also want to encourage those who may have suffered sleights over the years because of birth origin, sex, race, culture physical ability or because of the spirit of jealousy covetousness and hatred in the heart of man , short changed them somehow along the way. Yes, for some there has been a set up or the handing out a dud ball to play the game – (so to speak) and indeed substances that we know does no one any good.

I want to say to that person who feels they cant seem to break the pattern or make headway or who may have been embroiled in this spirit of deception and deceit, that there is still hope if we can listen to Him and his word. Whether in the prison or palace, it is not how you start but how you end which is what is important and i speak about spiritual matters here. You fight with a victor if you join the kingdom and army of God, for He has already done it two thousand years ago. The scripture says many are our afflictions as servants of God but that He will reprove kings for your sake. All things work together for good to those who are the called according to his purposes. Romans 8:28 . There is a justice and judgement coming for the things that go on behind walls and under the shadow of darkness. But I know and am fully persuaded, that the man or woman of God and the one who remains steadfast in Him, will never be disappointed.

Just as depicted in the dream and throughout biblical history , God has his man or woman in post and position to act on his behalf and for others and to bring about just weights and balances in certain matters. Hold on. There are things that will be rectified in this life, but also an appointed time in eternity for others when all wrongs concerning you/us will be righted.

I speak to the leadership of the Body in particular when I say that the Lord admonishes us that we should behave fairly towards the household of faith and execute judgement and righteousness towards the stranger whenever we can , delivering them out of the hand of the oppressor. We should keep our eyes open to systems that perpetuate unfairness. We should do no violence to another (not with tongue or sword) no, not to the fatherless or the widow or the divorced woman… We should have a proper understanding of the games that can and are being played by the deceiver, through those who have given him access and through his tools. There should be no favoritism nor cliques,neither should we shed innocent blood. On the contrary, it is okay to challenge unfairness and injustice (and we do it when the occasion presents). We are at liberty to speak the truth in love and remember mercy should always triumph over judgement.


Lord, we want to acknowledge that all have sinned and come short of your glory and that your word tells us our hearts (in its fleshy state) is desperately wicked. We thank you that you speak to us in a myriad of ways including dreams and visions . We thank you that you have put us all in the body for a reason and a season and that none of us are above your word.

Lord, you have made us all in your own image and given us a choice of whom we will serve regardless of our personal circumstance. You have asked us to be fair and to love one another even as you have loved us.

We ask you for your continued light to be shed on our ways so that we can right any wrongs. Lord if we are responsible for anyone’s imposition, pain or suffering we ask for forgiveness. If we have short changed another (intentionally or unintentionally) Lord give us opportunity to love again and remedy situations. Help us to be just and fair in all we say or do.

Lord your all seeing eye searches through the whole earth looking for those whose hearts are perfect towards you. We can only be perfect through a relationship with you. We strive for perfection but we know we are only made perfect through the marks which were made on your body for us and our acceptance of washing of water and by your word. Lord, I know that your desire is not to leave us disadvantaged, but to bring light to us where there is darkness. Let your mercy triumph over judgement.

In this hour, may you find us, watching and waiting, with our cups clean and our houses swept. Indeed, remove anything from our houses, homes, foundations that may be acrid or bitter and let there be truth and a clean sweep in our lives and in all our affairs.
