Thank You Jesus

the word for today is
– thank You Jesus for the cross –

Never doubt what we hear. I lost my sync as I had misplaced some things and I just doubted what I was hearing. Yet, in the stillness of who God is, I heard the same thing. 

Thank You Jesus for the cross. I suppose LORD it is this time of the year where many are thanking You for Your great and mighty work of the cross. It is with a humble heart and a grateful heart that I approach You and please forgive me for doubting what You have said to me. 

Peace And Calm

Sometimes, just sometimes, we just have to be in this place of calm and peace. I don’t know if anyone can understand but I just need to be in this place. It’s peaceful and it’s calm and it’s really really nice. 

I was just thinking with the LORD and with all this LIGHT around me it’s awesome. It seems to take away from this world though. I used to think the world and most things were beautiful but after being so long in the spiritual realm in Jesus’ Presence and in His LIGHT nothing seems to compare to His Presence. His LIGHT. His blazing pure white bright LIGHT. It has taken away from even creation and its once thought of beauty. Now the only beauty is the LORD. Nothing compares to You LORD Jesus. 

Faithful And True

Rev 3:14  And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: 

Rev 19:11  And I saw the heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon called Faithful and True; and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 

Rev 21:5  And he that sitteth on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he saith, Write: for these words are faithful and true. 

Rev 22:6  And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angels to show unto his servants the things which must shortly come to pass. 

Jer 42:5  Then they said to Jeremiah, Jehovah be a true and faithful witness amongst us, if we do not according to all the word wherewith Jehovah thy God shall send thee to us.

The white horse represents the purity of the gospel. Christ is called Faithful and True. 

Let’s run this race together with Christ Jesus for all the years to come until we finally see Him Face to face. We are blessed. 

The Spirit

It has been one of these nights where the unexpected happens when you do not expect anything. The LORD does His own thing at His own time all the time. He is in control. We are just taking a free ride on a roller-coaster. It’s bumpy. 

The LORD showed up in His big big way.

I always turn up early so that I can get some dancing in before anyone arrives and our worship pastor plays songs and sings so that I can dance all over the place. It’s different. The Spirit of the Living God is moving around and if I just flow with the Spirit, He leads me into moving around and twirling my banner and it’s effortless you see. It’s gentle and soft and the flow is like the wind. Tonight, I had such an experience though my grandsons were with me and the Spirit moved. You see when the Spirit moves and you go with Him, it’s like you’re here and there and everywhere, to the right and to the left and up and down. Not forgetting the banner that has to go in the direction of the breeze. So, if you do not know Him well, it’s quite a feat. I’ve been dancing since the year 2000 and it has been twelve years long so I can feel the Spirit move. And I like to get the place ready before we start worshiping together as a congregation. Anyways, I was here and there and the banner was like so light and flying in the Spirit as well as my body and legs were moving in the direction of the Spirit and my grandson was twirling away and the band was playing away and well, it was altogether lovely. 

So then the prayer meeting starts and low and behold fire appears on the horizontal from west to east. Then this huge huge eagle appears. Like so huge looking to the east as well from the west. When the fire appears I hear, for our God is a consuming fire.

Heb 12:28 Wherefore, receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us have grace, whereby we may offer service well-pleasing to God with reverence and awe:
Heb 12:29 for our God is a consuming fire.

And when I see the eagle, I start to hear the song about Israel. Now remember that I am dancing with the worship team in full swing at full blast and I hear all this as well. Something is happening in the Spirit realm. 

So then the LORD gives me a picture of 

and I realize I’m in the sea of glass like this

and this is holy ground. And of course through the course of the night my Saviour is her with me Himself and I touch His face with my fingers. He’s altogether lovely. He sure is. Jesus is His Name in case you need to know Whom He is. Noting that the word for today is – faithful and true – but I haven’t had to the time to get to this yet as I needed to jot all this down before I miss something. 

And the Holy Spirit was moving again and I very nearly fell over in the movement of the wrong direction. He is so strong. Much stronger than me and when I lift up my banner it’s like it’s flying though I’m using no strength at all. Not at all. It’s flying and moving all by itself. What a night of prayer it was. And then I hear this song of more power and more love.

Complete In Christ Jesus

the verse for this morning is
– 6 having confidence of this very thing, that he who has begun in you a good work will complete it unto Jesus Christ’s day: –

the word for this morning is
– completion –

We are on the path of holiness and purity in Christ Jesus. This is the best path to take. It is the highway unto the LORD. With Him. In Him. For Him. Only Him. All of Him. Forevermore. Into His everlasting kingdom. This is us. Do no be faint-hearted. The joy of the LORD is our strength. Messiah is returning. Soon. He is coming. Be of good cheer. Hosanna in the highest. Praise the LORD God Almighty. 

Things don’t always make sense but all my life I’ve found that with God everything will be alright. Or is it that I was disciplined so when I was so very young to know that it’s all God and never ever to blame Him for anything. It’s a hard and tough way to walk. To praise Him all the way. In the good times and the bad times. In the good feelings and in the pain. No one wants to see anyone suffer. My heart is soft soft soft you see. I was blessed enough to have my heart broken for the LORD on the cross as I am crucified with Christ in His sufferings. Everyone thinks it’s all about me. What no one really realizes that it’s all about who Jesus is and who He is and even when I was alone bowling up there, Jesus was with me and we had great conversations. Well, there was no one to talk to really. If you want to be up there, it’s tough. No one. You learn fast to enjoy your own company. I enjoyed God’s. We have to take up our cross and run the race. Even with tears in our eyes. No one promised it would be easy. I am so blessed that I’ve known God all my life and walked with Him in the good times and the bad times no matter what. He comes out strong. Why isn’t everyone like this. Grace. I’ve had a big break from birth. Is it about me. Absolutely not. It’s about those who are or will be walking in a manner worthy of the King of kings and the LORD of lords. I’ve had stick. Lots of it. All the time. When you bowl. You get stick all the time. If you can’t take it, you never ever get up there. You never ever get close. So, how important it is to be able to stand on your own. Alone. Standing tall. The LORD teaches us in different ways. All different. No one the same as the other. I have so many times in my life asked, why, and got stick for that too. But, by His grace, He has always answered my questions. He has always told me why. I am blessed. I’ve made a few mistakes but a lot of very good choices in my life. LORD Jesus, You are the LIGHT of the world.

Above The Storm

The LORD has countless times brought me above the storm and this time it is no different. He has taken me up up up up up as I had gone deep deep deep deep deep and we are both standing above the storm looking down. It’s swirling and twirling and thick. But in this place with Christ Jesus, there is peace. A peace that surpasses all understanding. The LORD has been able to bless me with His grace to keep a very soft and gentle and timid at heart. He has preserved the heart with which He has so paid for on the cross. For this I feel so grateful as I know that place of which is a heart of stone of unfeeling, without compassion, no love for anyone, only thinking of number one, my good self and no on else, hurting others as they hurt me by ignoring them totally and absolutely, just not a particularly friendly person at all. Not at all. High high high high high high high above the raging storm of life in this world. Sometimes I wonder though – why are there so very many storms in this world. Regeneration in Spirit and in Truth. The Spirit and His bride. 

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

the LORD speaks all the time, we just have to listen to Him when He speaks, He speaks all the time, He wants to lead us into His righteousness if we would but listen, lend our ear to Him and listen to what HE has to say, this is the deal, all the time, He is not in some far off distant place, away from us, He is here, right here, if we would but listen, still our hearts and listen, so, you see, He has been speaking all my life, the difference is, I took the time to listen to what He has to say and what He has to show me and who He is, He just really wants us to know His story, as silly as it may seem, He loves to share His life with us, in the stillness and quietness of our hearts, His voice is so clear, absolutely so clear, as clear as clear as can be, it’s Easter and it’s not my favourite time of the year, I know this, I know about the crucifixion, been there so many times, done it so many times, it is where it is all about Jesus and what He has done for us, the spirit of the man is broken in this place like Jesus’ heart, His heart was broken for us, it was so much to take for a Man in flesh, Jesus was in flesh, so, it hurt Him, He hurt just like we hurt, what is Spirit is forevermore, my heart and mind and soul and being was crushed totally the first time I saw this, to the extent it is not a place I would choose to go to by choice, now, I’m blessed, I stand beside my Saviour, He is covering me with His robe of righteousness, He is hiding me into Himself, in His heart, there is nothing more precious than to be a child of God, hidden in Him, for Him and with Him, to be all for Him and Him alone, with this everything fits into place, as He sets the sun and the moon and the stars and our earth and all that there is into place, He sets these into place but He also sets us into place, if we would but surrender and submit our hearts to Him and Him alone, it’s a walk of submission and surrender, each and every day, each and every moment, man is evil continuously, never looking to God, but by His grace and mercy He brings us into Himself, He takes us into Himself, and in doing so, we change, each and every day, each and every morning, each and every night, we need to learn to submit to the LORD and surrender our lives to Him and Him alone, Christ Jesus this is, Messiah, the great I AM, He has no beginning and no end, we are but a speck of dust in the wind compared to a God that spans no beginning and no end to time, that can do anything that we could ever dream of, we are but limited in what we can think of or even imagine, we serve a God who is awesome, in Spirit and in Truth,
