Waking up to the sound of His voice

waking-up-to-the-sound-of-his-voice

‘I’m fully satisfied as with a rich dinner, my mouth speaks praise with joy on my lips – whenever I ponder you on my bed, whenever I meditate on you in the middle of the night’ Psalm 63. 4-6

I had an interesting dream the other night – it was about Lonnie Frisbie of the Jesus People Movement. Although he died in 1993, in the dream he was still alive today, but had been totally forgotten about. God showed me the legacy he had left in terms of the impact he had on John Wimber and the Vineyard movement, yet he is largely unknown and not really honoured. He was holding very small gatherings with 5/6 people and I had this intense desire to go and hang out with him in these meetings with the remnant of revival that he was carrying. I woke up thinking that the revivals of old are not dead, they’re just forgotten and dormant, hidden by a spiritual amnesia and blanket of slumber.

There’s something about remembering what God once did, holding it within your heart and allowing that fire to awaken something new today. The day after I had that dream I was on the train passing through Bradford, the city where Smith Wigglesworth lived. As the train pulled in, sitting on the platform was the spitting image of Smith Wigglesworth; an old Yorkshire gent, moustache and all just looking at me. For a split second as I looked at him Smith Wigglesworth stared right back at me and God said to me “Smith Wigglesworth isn’t dead either.” The anointing that Smith carried is alive today. It isn’t dead, although so many churches act like it, it is just forgotten and dormant. We might remember the person but the church has forgotten the anointing he carried, the Presence, the Fire on his life.

Wakey wakey

Several years ago while we were youth workers in Antioch Church in Llanelli, we were holding our usual Wednesday night youth meeting. We had just had a conference where the youth had been particularly impacted about revival and God had started to really stir something on their hearts. I asked the youth group whether God had spoken to them anything that week. I had given them a word the previous week that they were going to be given new shields of faith and I was interested if anything had happened. Most shrugged “no…” but a young 15 year old girl looked and said “Yes… actually… In the middle of the night God woke me up and I heard him say “Go to Moriah Chapel, (the place where the 1904 Welsh revival started) and say ‘Wakey wakey’ to the angel there…”

Louise told me and the rest of the youth group what had happened that week; that she had gone to the chapel the next day after she had been woken up in the middle of the night by God. The chapel happened to be next to her sixth form college. When she got there she stood looking at Moriah Chapel deliberating about what to do. There was a bus stop filled with people next to it. She looked at the bus stop and back at Moriah Chapel and whispered “wakey wakey”. God spoke to her in that moment and said “Is that how much you want revival??” so challenged and even while people in the bus stop watched, she yelled “WAKEY WAKEY!!”

The story of what happened next has spread like a wild fire around the world. Louise watched as a  15 /20 foot angel yawned and stepped out of the chapel. It then spoke to her. It said “I am the angel of the 1904 revival and you’ve just woken me up” Louise stood there thinking ‘what on earth…!!!’ and the angel said “I fell asleep because people stopped calling out for revival”. The angel then wandered away up the road while Louise stood there gob smacked.

Several prophets have met the angel since. One prophet bumped into the angel unaware of what had happened, and asked the angel what it was doing. The angel replied “a 15 year old girl just woke me up.”

God woke Louise up with the sound of His voice in the middle of the night and brought her into a supernatural encounter which awoke something that had been dormant since 1904.

I don’t believe we have seen the full manifestation of what that angel is about today but in the months that followed the angelic experience our youth group went through an amazing time of encounter with the Holy Spirit. We experienced physical healings for the first time, we were opened up to the supernatural; gold and silver dust became common and other angelic encounters happened quite frequently. Some kids from the local community came along and were saved. It got to the point where teenagers who had never been to the prayer room before, came in and were falling out under the Presence of God as soon as they were prayed for. One kid screamed and ran out the room we met in as his eyes opened to the angels there. He physically saw them. Amazing events that opened up my life to a whole new world. It has marked the last 10 years of my life.

I believe that the angel from Moriah Chapel was commissioned for Awakening in 1904 and it still is today. It hasn’t abandoned its position (Jude 1.6). A well known minister in the US encountered the angel recently and it said to him “Wakey Wakey is my name, that is what I was commissioned for – awakening”. In the lead up to the 1904 revival Evan Roberts had a season of intense visitation in the night. Such a heavy presence of God would rest in his room and would wake him up night after night. God would wake him up with an intensity of His Presence, enough that could shake the nation and would speak with this General of the future.

Remember

It is funny how quickly we forget what God did for a nation. Spiritual amnesia causes us to forget what He did. In the dream about Lonnie, spiritual amnesia caused people to forget the anointing Lonnie walked in. Spiritual amnesia is like a toxic fog of hopelessness, confusion and doubt which comes to put out the fire and abort the promises of God over our lives. Spiritual amnesia ultimately leads to deception. It happened in the Garden “Did God really say…?” 

The Israelites were constantly reminded in the Old Testament- ‘Do not forget the Lord, remember what I have done for you…’ King David would lie awake in the night hours and remember the stories of old. It would stir his heart and awaken something new within him. 

Why am I talking about this now? Because I believe that God wants to bring us into fulfilment and awakening. There is a significant connection between remembering and Awakening – One of the jobs of the Holy Spirit is to help us remember what Jesus said (John 14.6). Why? because we have been given every Spiritual Blessing in the Heavenly places, we have been given Fullness in Christ. We are New Creation beings but have forgotten where we came from. This truth can get shrouded in an amnesia which chains up our inheritance and stops us from being able to walk out fulfilment… “Did God really say…?” But when we begin to remember, when we begin to honour what God once said, God can ignite this with a fire that burns away amnesia’s toxic fog of doubt, confusion and deception. Remembering the sound of His voice awakens us to a new reality of Heaven today.

In the remembering God’s voice wakens us to a door of the supernatural where we begin to understand things which Heaven has never forgotten. Heaven can’t forget because they are in the present reality of it now. It is not a dead memory, it is a present reality, a fire that constantly burns.

The angels remember the day when the Presence of awe and wonder began to fall on the meetings Evan Roberts lead. But more than that they rest in the present reality of it at the feet of Jesus today. They know what Evan Roberts tapped into. Heaven remembers, it has a record of what it was like when Wesley began to stir himself with the fire and watch as the people began to gather around him in a realm of Heaven. But it is more than a story it is a living fire, accessible through an open door today which Jesus opened through his life and death. God remembers the Might which Smith Wigglesworth operated in and the desire that exploded out of him to see people free from infirmity, that Gift of Faith is freely available today.

Visit encounters of old, remember what God once did and let him awaken you with His voice to fire today, fresh fire, fire we have never experienced before, fire that the revivalists and saints of old walked in; Apostolic Fire, that has been dormant since the days of Cuthbert’s wild fire revival. But its not just an old fire, it’s alive today, birthing something new, something for our day, something not been seen before on the earth; something unique. This anointing is not dead. His voice is whispering “wake up to reality”.

Northern Glory with Stuart Watkins

Northern Glory with Stuart Watkins | Cielo, Garforth | 7.30pm

We are excited to have Stuart Watkins with us for Northern Glory this month. Stuart has been on the leadership team of Antioch Church (a Pioneer Church) in Llanelli for many years and has a proven track record as a Prophet. He has ministered in Eastern Europe extensively, working with local churches and speaking at leader’s conferences where he has seen God work amazingly. Stuart has written a book on the prophetic which has been translated in Bulgarian.

He has incredible stories of God’s supernatural power working in his life and those around him – if you have heard story of the teenager who met the ‘Wakey wakey’ angel from the 1904 Welsh Revival – that was his daughter. This will definitely be a significant time that you don’t want to miss!

Here is a cool testimony from a conference Stuart spoke at:

‘I was taking a week of meetings in a church in Bucharest. First night while speaking I noticed a few guys in the front row looking at their hands. I stopped speaking and asked them what was going on. At first they did not really want to say but as I looked I could see oil on their hands. They looked a little surprised as this had never happened to them before. As these guys put their hands near to others the same thing began to happen – oil and also gold dust started appearing on their hands. The meetings were being streamed live over the internet around Europe, mainly to Romanian people. During a meeting a young girl called in to say as they were watching the meeting oil was running down the walls of the room they were in. “What should we do?!!” they were asking. I felt to tell them to take some of the oil put it on their hands and go outside and pray for people. This they did and reported back that people were getting healed as they prayed for them.’


northern-glory-healing-tentWe had a great time at David’s Tent over the summer!

Such a privilege to part of something so special which God is doing in the UK. We took a team down made up with some crazy radicals from Sheffield, Leeds and South Wales and ran a ministry tent during the festival. We had some amazing encounters and some remarkable miracles took place. The main thing was the tangible presence of God that people said they walked into when they came into the tent. God brought lots of people to tears and touched many people’s hearts.

Here are some testimonies from our ministry tent:

‘Dear Northern Team, my husband and I went to David’s Tent and although your prayer schedule was totally booked you still managed to fit me in. God’s presence was so mighty and real I felt so light- may I say light as a feather. I almost felt I could fly. Prior to going my right foot was swollen and the big toe was in considerable pain. I have been suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis for the last 27 years but whilst Fiona and Heather were praying my foot felt free of all pain and swelling- the reason I say free of swelling is because sandals I was wearing, actually had room for my foot to move without pressure and rubbing. I believe I am healed! Big thank you Northern Glory team for your dedication and commitment.’

Other healings included:  – a woman with swollen lymphs in her neck had them visibly shrink within a couple of minutes prayer, A woman’s abdominal pain was healed, someone with ligament damage had all the pain instantly go, a person with neck strain was instantly healed, back pain was healed, a person with a damaged wrist instantly healed. One woman had a locked shoulder, she couldn’t raise her arm above her head before she came in the tent and was in pain – after 5 mins of prayer there was no pain and she could put her arm fully in the air.

Many people also came for prophetic words and different people commented that there was a Spirit of Prophecy that was resting in the atmosphere over the tent. The accuracy of the words given by the team was very high. A couple came in and I instantly got the word ‘Lily of the Valley’, turned out that Lily was the girl’s name. The team were getting people’s  places of work, their actual house numbers, business ideas that people were actually involved in doing, even naming the different over seas countries that people’s children lived in.

It was pretty amazing to see God work so powerfully and touch people’s hearts.

 

 

Lucy Grimble | 21st Nov | Leeds

11061353_10153688001085883_1700900503711105600_o

Hello! It has been a while since I posted anything! Here is a quick catch up; it has been a busy 6 or 7 months! We have been over to Copenhagen to minister to a Partners in Harvest church before the Summer. One of the things we went there to do was minister in healing and I ended up getting healed myself! One of the members of the church prayed for my arm which had been in pain since I had pulled a muscle moving house and I felt something lift off of it and the pain left! It hasn’t come back since. That was nice and unexpected!

We have seen quite a number of healings at Northern Glory over the last year or so and here is a testimony of one in particular: We were sharing about the Fire of the Holy Spirit at Northern Glory one evening before the Summer. I was talking about the Celtic Saints that lived in the North of England, in particular St Cuthbert, who was nicknamed ‘Fire of the North’. I was sharing how he carried such a strong Presence of God and Fire on him that he was known for this. As I was speaking it felt like that fire came in the room like pillars standing next to people.

One particular women needed healing from a trapped nerve and earlier in the night several people had prayed for her but she had not felt any improvement. Suddenly as we started talking about God’s Presence being like a pillar of Fire, she described feeling intense heat move down her body and instantly all the pain left her body! She was shocked as she had been in agony, it was amazing to see God move so powerfully, without anyone even praying for her!

We also took part in a healing and prophecy stall in Leeds, organised by our friends Jon and Lydia at a New Age Fair. We were perched in between a couple of tarot card readers and a masseuse.  We had a great time! The first lady I spoke to I did a dream interpretation for. Turns out she runs an event management company and asked if we would go and do training on dream interpretation at one of her events! We then met a guy who said he walks around events like this looking to see who has ‘the gift’ and who are frauds! He could see we were genuine and so he talked to us about his spirit guide and we were able to talk about ours! Then a lady came to find us because last year myself and someone else in the team had prayed for her for healing from recurring migraines. She said that since we had prayed she had not had another migraine since! Glory!

During the Summer we went to David’s Tent, a 3 day worship gathering on the South coast of England. It was so good, the worship popped each night in to another realm of freedom. Really excited about what God is doing through this worship movement; we believe that a new Move of the Spirit is starting to happen through it.

At the end of the Summer we hosted Crowder and Godfrey in Leeds for 2 nights. Was a great time, many people were impacted by the freedom and joy they experienced over these couple of days. We are having Godfrey back on the 18th Dec for a Northern Glory Christmas party! It may be fancy dress. We will tell Godfrey that anyway.

It has been interesting to watch some stuff unfold in the media over the course of the year which I felt God speak to me at various times. The rise in focus on women’s rights, in particular coverage of women’s sport has increased like the Women’s World Cup and it was also interesting to see the release of the film Suffragette which I felt a few years ago would be released as a sign of renewed interest in women’s rights. It has also been interesting to see various issues of corruption and abuse uncovered in the Police, something which I felt God show me at the start of the year and put out there. First issues were uncovered in South Yorkshire Police and then in the Metropolitan Police. I also said it would reach in to other places of authority and this has been the case as the corruption that has been uncovered has seemed to implicate West Minister. Read an article on the BBC about that HERE.

Think I may have also mentioned Messi moving to Chelsea… well looks like they need him more than ever now, who knows maybe a bit of delay on that word…?! 🙂


Lucy Grimble | Sat 21st Nov | 7,30pm at St Matts 

We have Lucy Grimble at Northern Glory on the 21st Nov. We first saw Lucy at David’s Tent last year, she carries the Presence of God and a real Spirit of Worship so we are excited about this! Tickets will be £5 and you can buy them on the door.

We feel worship is a key to opening up new experiences with God for the city and region. There are doors of opportunity open and waiting for the bold to take hold of them! Great days ahead.

Being a history maker?

11058444_10153154914035883_4023061946275637699_oOver the last few blogs I’ve talked about Union, the pattern of the Kingdom of God hidden within creation and the supernatural energy of God found in rest. There is a general theme that I’m getting at- that God is already here and around us and His Presence is found in rest. This is the Gospel!

In the following blog I am going to look at the idea of being a History Maker, which was a common prophecy give to a lot of people in the 90’s and whether it actually caused more harm than good.

First of all a quick catch up…

We had a great time with Godfrey Birtill at the at Northern Glory. We prayed for a women with shooting pains in her legs and as we prayed the pain left. She will be able to see if she is permanently healed over the next few weeks. I heard another cool healing testimony from our time ministering in Germany with our friends Florian and Clare Berndt in the Summer. We prayed for a guy who had had a stroke leaving the left hand side of him paralysed. After we prayed strength and movement returned to his leg and he was able to fully rest weight on it for the first time since the stroke, and so was also able to walk around. We found out from Florian recently that the healing has lasted and become permanent! Amazing! Some people dismiss the whack and yet in it there is supernatural power to see paralyzed people walk and broken bones healed.

Our next Northern Glory will be on 27th March, join the Facebook group, sign up to receive our regular emails or keep checking our events page to keep up to date.

I prophesied at the start of the year that there would be the uncovering of corruption in the Police ‘where those who should be defending the weak are doing the opposite’. This is beginning to happen already and various articles on the BBC yesterday were talking about how South Yorkshire Police ‘ignored hundreds of claims by young girls of sexual abuse in Sheffield’ and how an MP is calling for a full investigation to find out why these girls who needed defending were ignored.

Future History Makers?

In the 90s the idea of being a History maker was very popular. It is still around today in one form or another – One day i’m going to change the world! One day I’m going to be somebody! We are the generation to change nations and stand before kings… But this kind of idea can cause you to wait around longing for some future ‘revival/ big event/ destiny’ etc etc that will make you feel significant instead of enjoying normal life now. It can make us have a disdain for normal life today because we are wanting the thrill of this future destiny that will one day happen, far off when everything is sorted and perfect and yet this future History making destiny always eludes us like some shiny perfect looking carrot on a stick.

Is this history making destiny even the part of the Gospel? 

Sometimes we want to get everything sorted and organised and together before we can be a History Maker. We plan out the meetings and church services, we have all our programs together. And then we are ready. You can Move now God. We press pause until it all seems ready. I’m glad this isn’t the plan found within the Gospel! Man God would never have come if he’d been waiting for us to get it all together. In fact Colossians says the opposite – While we were dead in our sin He made us alive!

The kind of ‘waiting until everything is perfect’ sort of thinking invades our lives with delay and can produce a mindset which idealises our destiny and puts off the things God wants to do for a later time. We can do the same with prophecy – you get an amazing prophecy about your destiny and you immediately stick it on the horizon for a time when you’re successful/ in revival/ got a Christian ministry/ best mates with Bill Johnson and fail to look at the Now and discover God’s Presence in the Present.

It avoids dealing with reality for some future fantasy.

I think that this highlights a misunderstanding of Prophecy and the identity of Christ as the fulfillment of the prophetic word. Real Prophecy should be ‘active’ causing a real shift or reaction in the ‘Now’.

Rather than providing a bit of escapism to a life we don’t like true prophecy should give us power to face reality and overcome difficult circumstances.

This is because Jesus is the Prophetic Word made Flesh. He is the physical answer to the Old Testament Prophetic Words but also every other prophetic word ever given. The incarnation brought fulfillment to the prophetic word through bringing it to life and giving it flesh and bones.  This was a permanent thing for all prophecy. Galatians 4.4 says that Christ came at the fullness of time so there is no delay or waiting around for fulfillment, he already came bringing fulfillment to prophecy within the fullness of time.

So when you prophecy with Christ in you,  the words should release substance, they should be a catalyst to the Now.

Distance and Delay causes us to have spiritual blindness to what God is doing in front of us, we get long sightedness meaning we miss whats literally right in front of us because we’re too concerned with what we think is coming in the future, rather than what we have already been given in the now!

History makers?

If we misunderstand real Prophecy and the identity of Christ as the fulfillment of Prophecy we can think it is down to our efforts to try to be a History Maker and bring about the fulfillment of those prophecies.

Our destiny is found in the journey rather than the destination. The journey takes unusual twists and turns and we can end up in random places which seem contrary to where we thought our ‘destiny’ was going to take us. Man imagine the responsibility of God’s ‘Plan A’ from before the foundation of the world resting on Mary and Joseph as they roll in to Bethlehem. Joseph, confronted by 50 different Inns has no idea which one is the ‘right one’. Beads of sweat dripping down his forehead as he feels the pressure of being a history maker slipping away as each Inn reject them… which one is the right one for the Messiah to be born in??!

Its probably best they didn’t have a clue!

The destination of the stable seemed totally random and it was the person with them that gave it significance. The real purpose, the real thing that mattered, the destiny of humanity was with them the whole time, probably asleep in Mary’s womb – Emmanuel! God was with them bringing significance to the randomness and the stuff which seemed  insignificant. History was made out of the twists and turns of their unpredictable journey through the very presence of God in their midst. History is made in the present!

Is it possible that sometimes ‘prophecy’ works against us actually fulfilling it? Maybe it has been prophesied that I will be a history maker today, but what if I leave the house at the wrong time and walk too quickly to the bus stop and miss the divine connection that would have made me a history maker? What if I was supposed to evangelise the guy who just walked passed me and because I didn’t stop him God will hold me accountable for the fact he just walked into a lamp post?

The anxiety of making a mistake which will cause you to miss your destiny can paralyse you into not actually doing anything!

Hebrews says ‘Today if you hear my voice’. There’s something about enjoying God’s presence in the now and letting history write itself.

Learning from the Best

I love Jesus, He seemed to just stumble into situations filled with Glory and the Holy Spirit and let stuff unfold around him. Consider the crowd around him mobbing him, he bumps into a women who grabs his garments and gets physically healed. I love Luke 7 where Jesus, followed by  a massive entourage of people, descend on a random insignificant town called Nain (never heard of it). Having seen some incredible things and in the middle of a chaotic move of God filled with the supernatural they run into a funeral procession. History stumbles into greatness as the man is raised from the dead, the miracle grips the town in awe and wonder and the story is spread all over the entire region even reaching John the Baptist who was blown away by what he heard.

How much better is it to discover the Presence of God in the Now and let history be made around you.

How do you fulfill prophecies in your life?

Jesus is the fulfillment of the Prophetic Word. Within His very nature was fulfillment of all the Old Testament prophecies. So as He walked around 1st C Judea he didn’t need to stress about making the ‘right’ decision. Fulfillment was found within His identity. And the same is true for us. You are seated in Christ, in fulfillment, in the fullness of time! You are seated in your destiny – Jesus. Fulfillment of prophetic words is found in the discovery of where we are seated. But not just that, who we’ve been United to – you have been united to the Word made Flesh, the fulfillment of Prophecy Himself.

We have also been given the fullness of the Godhead. Jesus knew this and so as he wandered around, this fullness simply leaked out of Him.  It invaded the region and caused carnage, turning curses into blessings. Whenever he met people His Presence intoxicated them. It shone out of Him and enveloped them within His Glory. It made them significant.This is what the the true Tabernacle of David looks like. It is People, intoxicating the world with the fragrance of Christ. Saturated with His Presence, people who effortlessly are the fulfillment to prophetic words by carrying the fullness of God into random situations. They make the insignificant moments into History. 

Jesus is History. He is the beginning and the end, the author and perfecter of our salvation. He fills All in All and makes everything complete, filling everything everywhere with Himself! Ephesians 1.23

So don’t try and be a history maker. Enjoy the surprises of an unpredictable journey with God and discover Him in the most random situations to let history unfold around you.

Look out for the next blog where I will be sharing some personal stories of the supernatural where God has invaded random situations causing amazing things to happen!

 

 

The Pattern within Creation

the pattern within creation

Seeing the Pattern of Heaven within Creation

I love the Celtic Christians. They didn’t have the view that ‘the spiritual world is good and the natural world is bad’. This view is Gnosticism and can creep into prophetic circles so easily. Even in terms of people’s priorities – valuing weird prophetic experiences above normal relationships. It can produce a disdain towards normal life! Urrr! Can’t believe I have to drop my kids off at school when I should be engaging with Heaven… It’s actually quite weird when you think about it but yet there are lots of prophetic people out there modelling something, possibly not quite as bad as that, but similar. The early Celtic Christians valued the natural as much as the spiritual. They discovered the mystical in the mundane.

The Kingdom of God is not some airy fairy Never Never Land, which takes us away from a life we don’t like, but is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the midst of our everyday life. (Romans 14.17) Paul had encounters with the Third Heaven and yet realised that the Kingdom of God was entirely relevant to his normal life.

The Kingdom of God is the True Pattern of Creation

St. Augustine is an early church Father and is regarded as influencing much of western Christianity. Some of his teaching I don’t particularly like and would side with other Fathers of the Faith instead, with guys like Athanasius who have influenced the Eastern Church. But I do like Augustine’s view of evil- he believed that it is the ‘privation’ of good – the lack or absence of Good.

The Celtic Christians saw the Image of God embedded within the whole of creation; that the Kingdom and Glory of God is threaded through it. But there are situations in the world right now where although the Glory and Kingdom of God covers the whole earth, like in Samuel’s day, there is no widespread revelation of the Kingdom, or of the Glory. There is a lack of revelation of the Gospel, and in that lack or privation, there is darkness- war, sickness, poverty, isolation etc. The world needs the reality of the Kingdom of God, the illumination of the true pattern to life. This will uncover Peace in situations of war and hatred.

The earth is waiting in eager anticipation, in groans like labour for it to come about. The world actually wants it (Romans 8). And there are no excuses. The Christ has already come bringing with Him the pattern of the Kingdom of Heaven, this pattern is the true make up of creation. Creation has the imprint of Glory in it, the fingerprint of God carrying the pattern of His original design. This pattern is His image.

Why does Creation long for the Sons of God?

Jesus said in Matt 5 that ‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called Sons of God’. The Sons of God will be peacemakers on the earth. They will have authority to reveal the things hidden within the universe’s true design  – things like this Peace. Jesus understood this (it was the Word of God, that formed creation into this pattern in the first place) and so He operated in it.

Isaiah 9 prophesies about the Son of God and says that –

…He will be called… Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His Government and of PEACE there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom…

The Celtic Saints believed that this image- the image of the Prince of Peace, is threaded through the whole cosmos.

The Sons of God are of the same pattern as the Son of God

Jesus moved in Peace while walking around 1st C. Judea. In Matt 8 the Son of God stands in the middle of a storm, surrounded by chaos, waves crashing in, the boat about to break in two, ship wreck staring them in the face. He says “Peace! Be still!”  His voice releases the pattern of the Kingdom of God and brings creation into peace and stillness.

Having authority over creation is a real area for the Sons of God to tap into and I like many others have been fascinated by this and have seen creation respond in different ways – stopping rain, causing rainbows in the sky, snow to fall or whipping up the wind. (It is fun and has genuinely happened in real life…)

Jesus walked according to the dimension of the Kingdom of Heaven, to the pattern and revelation of Glory. Within creation was the memory of Eden, and as Jesus walked around, creation could tangibly feel the resonance of that Kingdom. Through the life and death of Jesus a new chapter was opened for creation – to be set free from the bondage of decay into a new pattern of liberty and fruit. Creation was being reconfigured from Adam’s corruption to Christ’s perfection. Creation responded to Christ and where it didn’t there was trouble! When Jesus met a fig tree, it seemed to refuse His pattern and refused to produce fruit. So Jesus cursed it! Crazy!

Peace in conflict

There is another element to this pattern of Peace, it’s not just about playing with the weather but in stopping conflict in the world. There is Peace available from the Kingdom of God right now for situations within humanity – conflicts, wars, violent situations. Situations where  the pattern of the Kingdom of Heaven needs to be revealed. Creation is waiting for people with an understanding of the Supernatural power of Peace to impact regions that are ravaged by war. People with this authority can stop terrorism and civil wars.

No nation on earth has fully discovered peace. In the West we place so much emphasis on learning and education, teaching and understanding and yet there is violence, chaos, murder, etc etc going on. No country is free from it. This is true in the church too – there is the lack or privation of peace. So many teachers, so many sermons and yet churches riddled with conflict, gossip, marriages on the verge of break up, fall outs etc etc. You would think that if knowledge was the answer then we would have cracked it? Or is there something else?

Peace is better than knowledge

In Philippians 4 it talks about a peace which goes beyond, is greater than, exceeds, or transcends understanding. In the past we have seen this as ‘there is peace in the middle of chaos’ and yes that is true but at the same time it is telling us that peace has more value than understanding.

Where there is war, we don’t need more teaching and understanding, we need Peacemakers. We need those who have a revelation of their identity, that they are made in the image and pattern of the Prince of Peace, who know the authority in them, who can speak words that carry the resonance of Heaven and bring the reality of peace into situations. They will see it bubble up before them.

We don’t need more Prophets of Judgement pronouncing that in 2015 there will be doom and gloom but the Sons of God who can decree Peace and see it established in the middle of war zones; Prophets who can reveal the pattern of Heaven within creation.

Northern Glory

We had an amazing time at Northern Glory in Sheffield last Friday. The Presence of God was really strong with more physical healings happening. We ended with a fire tunnel, renamed ‘rapture tunnel’ and holy chaos ensued. The Glory was strong!

The next Northern Glory will be on the 27th Feb, in Leeds, venue tbc, with  Godfrey Birtill.

 

Year of the Pioneer!!

ImageSo much of the prophetic can come across as too general, lacking accuracy and sometimes just weird. Naturally this just makes people cynical and disillusioned with it! One of the things that needs reforming relates to the accountability of the word given.

So I am going to try and offer a bit of a reflection on the words I gave for last year and give a bit of context for where we are heading. (I’d encourage you to read our ‘What we Believe about Prophecy’ page also, if you’ve not done so already.)

Women’s Movement: Excited about the honouring of women in 2013! (Read the full prophecy here).

There was so much in the media about this in 2013. Here are some interesting articles related to a re-emergence of a women’s movement:
‘In 2013 the women’s movement has come back with a vengeance…’ – Fourth Wave Feminism.

There was also reform to areas which had previously gone under the radar: Modern Slavery Bill.

Also some other areas which were highlighted: ‘As several media outlets have already pointed out, this has undoubtedly been a huge year for women…’ – Minority voices.

In relation to the film I said would be made about the Suffragette movement- I was sort of beginning to wonder but as I woke up one morning God said ‘Carey Mulligan’ – the next day I discovered she is going to be in a new film called ‘Suffragette’ all about the key people in the suffragette movement.

However there are some reflections that need to be made in all this. The things that God is dealing with are controlling, domineering and oppressive mindsets in order to bring Freedom to ALL – both men and women!

I found an amazing quote from Brad Pitt about honouring his wife back to health, was really powerful and lots of people were impacted by what he said. For me this is the key issue relating to this whole are of women’s rights.

When the identity and image of women is reformed, there has been in history an aggressive over compensation, or a dishonouring of men in the midst of it. This happened in the Suffragette movement and in the 70s. But God is bringing Freedom to ALL!! Not women at the expense of men! 

This is what I said about Brad – as he honoured Angelina and loved her into freedom he opened up new freedom and blessing for himself to live in! And I said that in 2014 because of this he would enter new realms of blessing and win an Oscar. (You can read the full article here.) I had no idea that the film he acted in and produced …about someone going from Oppression to Freedom… (’12 years a Slave’) would be up for so many Oscar nominations and be called ‘the best film ever made!’ Crazy how God speaks!

Jo Gravell (The New Ecstatics) wrote some very interesting thoughts on the whole idea of the feminine side to God in 2013- that both men & women were made in the image of God… as in God has a feminine side… (Gen 1.27).

This is something which has been explored within Christianity by many feminist theologians and writers for years. If we look at the story from Genesis we see God making Adam (which means humanity) fully in the image of God. In order to make woman, God has to remove ‘a rib’, in Hebrew ‘tsela’, which means ‘side’ and separate Adam into two…

The Spirit moved within Humanity and brought reform to the heart of Government in 2013. Freedom and humility are here for women to see themselves as being equally made in the Image of God. But equally means exactly that – its not at the expense of men!

Where are we headed?

2013 was filled with signs for those who believe. The whole revelation of ‘No more Distance or Delay’ was fully displayed when Andy Murray won Wimbledon last year. The Gospel is all about bringing a longing fulfilled: Bliss! No more Hope deferred, Delay or Lack and so I said Murray would win the event which had so represented delay, disappointment etc. etc. and the ‘we’ve seen it all before’ mentality. I remember reading an article a few years back writing off Murray, saying he had already reached his peak and that like Tim Henman he would never really succeed. There was an obvious mindset of disappointment transferred to Murray. But Murray isn’t like Henman. There is something unorthodox and wild about him, unpredictable even. Murray is a Celt…

I remember at school there was an assembly about the Celts vs Romans. We were shown the superiority of the Roman soldiers, their fighting skills, weapons, training etc. when compared to the Wild Celts of Britian. But something was rising up on the inside of me. At the end of the assembly my friends and I were chatting and they were saying “man the Romans were such organised and efficient soldiers” but all I could say was “Romans?? I’m a Celt!!! I’d have been there with the wild ones, with the war paint on my face, staring the Romans in the face saying “Gimme Britain or I’ll Die!!!”

Thinking about it now I’m reminded of a gathering I attended with my friends a few years ago called ‘Closer to the Flame’, where the Wild Goose catapulted people round the room, as others danced around totally liberated in the Glory with war paint on their faces, Angels literally pulling people round the room, while some took actual photographs of the angels present! Crazy. Martin Scott said at that event that the Baby or Revival had been born…

All I know is that this is the year for the Wild Fire, Organic, celtic underdogs; those who have been written off, discredited or forgotten. It’s for dreams that have been tossed away and laughed at. It is for the accomplishment of things which seemed impossible for many and rediscovering the NEW. People discovering new ‘favourite’ things- music, food, friends; people who wrote off any chance of getting married suddenly meeting the love of their lives, people discovering new hidden talents, even at a late stage in life, which they realise is the very thing they were made to do! It is for people who have ‘seen it all before’ to experience new wonder, new awe, new LIFE and to see the very things which they’ll leave as a legacy! It is a year for the Pioneer!

Wild Fire

We are beginning to see, even in the last few days and weeks an explosion of the Wild Fire move of the Holy Ghost outside of the box. An uncontrollable Move of the Spirit which will increase and build in momentum and intensity. Talking to a friend who works in Tescos yesterday, he told me that he was seeing some customers fall out under the power of the Spirit. I have seen an upgrade and outbreak in healing over the last few weeks where people have been healed by me simply saying to them “the pain will be gone in 5 minutes”. I have known information about people just by looking at them and then spoken to them to have them say to me “Are you psychic????” Something is happening!

Something is going to break this year which will be incredible. I spent a weekend with Dave Vaughan and we were talking about this, sharing some stories of the things we have seen. He has done 2 videos off the back of our conversations in order to paint a bit of a picture for where this is headed. Have a look- it’s powerful…

Organic Glory Breakouts pt 1

Organic Glory Breakouts pt 2

I’m going to be sharing some stories of some organic Wild Fire things which I have encountered over the next few weeks – watch out for the stories!!

Fathers of the Whack pt. 1

Here’s a short interview I did with Dave Vaughan where he talks about the influence that Darrel Stott has had on his life. Darrel is a guy who got radically changed and impacted by Toronto in 1994 and went to Indonesia afterwards where he saw some incredible outbreaks of the Glory.
Enjoy the video!

Freedom Rising

freedom risingOne of the things the Lord has been speaking to us over the last few years has been about the importance of seeing the Glory manifest in the world- in the workplace, on the street, in the market place. We have seen some cool miracles and healings happen in McDonalds and Starbucks over the last couple of weeks. My wife prayed for a girl in McDonalds and God healed her nose right there and then.  We were with our great friend Brian Jourden from Iris Ministries – as he shared some stories of the healings he has seen the atmosphere of the place changed and we felt the fire of God released in the middle of McDonalds. God wants to meet people in real life. In the middle of the ordinary, He wants to bring significance. He is changing the focus of a meeting saturated, conference heavy culture to a family centred, ordinary life which is filled with a Supernatural God. And in this way He is showing His relevance to a generation who can’t connect with church programs and models.

I was with my great friend Dave Vaughan from The New Ecstatics in Starbucks a couple of weeks ago and we were drunk in the Holy Ghost. I commented in the last blog that we had been messing around with commanding objects to stick to the walls supernaturally – we tried it this time in Starbucks with our phones and money- we commanded them to supernaturally stick to the wall and before our very eyes (and anyone else who was watching) they did – right in the middle of the coffee shop!! It was crazy and a lot of fun! God is breaking out all over the place and it is a lot of fun!

Oppression Challenged 

bird cage1 (1)I’m really excited that the media has highlighted issues like trafficking and the damage that pornography does to families a lot recently. Pornography has started to be seen in a negative light for the first time by the media. There has been countless debates on Radio 4 and documentaries on these subjects this year and I think that a mindset shift is beginning to happen where these areas are beginning to be seen as unacceptable in our society. In May equality lawyers wrote a letter to the Guardian suggesting that ‘Lads Mags’ breached equality legislation and businesses were in danger of being sued by staff and customers who were being exposed to indecent images. That is unheard of!

An area that has needed reforming is how victims of abuse are treated in court.  This year there has been legislation passed to change the way victims of trafficking are treated in court when they are giving evidence. The new legislation stops the victim from being torn apart by the defense team in front of their abuser.

I recently heard a story on Radio 4 that upset me- an 11 year old girl, the victim of trafficking in the UK, found the experience of being cross examined in court so humiliating she ran out of the court room, crying and asking for her mum while her attackers gloated. This is just plain wrong. The courts are changing the procedures so victims can give evidence on video before the trial to avoid these kind of situations. There have been high profile arrests of people involved in trafficking , which has increased the spot light on this area too. Jesus does not tolerate the oppression of women and He is bringing transformation. He is renewing minds and bringing a revelation of honour towards women.

The Presence of God is moving IN the world! This whole issue has even hit TV – I heard a debate suggesting that the next Dr Who would be a woman for the first time ever!

One thing I see happening is that as freedom is released to women to stand in their identity there will be re-balancing within relationships and marriages. As women are released from the fear and control that has held them, men will in turn find freedom released in their own mindsets and identity; freedom to be themselves. This new found freedom will catapult them into greater things as they begin to express who they were made to be more fully. I saw a quote from Brad Pitt this week that I thought was amazing. I’m telling you – there is a mindset shift happening towards women in society:

“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her.

I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute. I gave her a lot of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much. And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.”

And so I think that there will be greater success coming to Brad Pitt as he publicly blesses and honours his wife; not because of some yin and yan karma crap but because he has let love and freedom overtake his marriage and change mindsets of manipulation and control. This will result in greater freedom for him to be himself and the great actor he is! I’m just going to stick this out there – I prophesy he will get an academy award in 2014!

New Arts Movement 

Another thing the Lord spoke to me about at the start of the year was that there would be the start of a new arts movement in 2013. Damian Hirst was the figurehead of something new in the 90s- this has come to an end and something new will start rise in Europe this year, with a new level of creativity attached to it. It will reflect a sense of radical freedom and will also sometimes be described as chaotic; seeing beauty in the midst of chaos; beauty emerging from chaos. All I know is it will be Free!

I noticed Martin Scott prophesy about this recently. He said:
Imminently there is coming an Arts movement. There will be newspaper headlines that a new art wave has hit Europe. It will explain that this does not have one source, it did not begin in one specific place. This movement will begin in these summer months. On the back of the arts movement will come a new economic movement. It is the arts that will rebalance the economic books. Martin Scott

Be blessed!

Mystical Miracles

flyting saint

When we think about the supernatural we usually think of a miracle breaking the laws of physics. But when we consider that the laws of physics are based on the human observation of the world and are actually continually changing, as our understanding of areas like Quantum Physics expands we begin to see a God who works within the world without breaking any laws but does things we have no grid or understanding for at the moment.

I said in a previous post that when we get the mystical obsession of the Cross we will be able to handle some of the craziest miracles ever because our focus is right. As we understand Grace we begin to tap into what Jesus actually accomplished in re-creating us from the corrupt nature to restoring His image, the God Image within us- ‘For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable’ 1 Peter 1.23.

Is it possible that having been born from above as New Creations we are able to interact with the world from God’s perspective, rather than our limited human understanding of nature?

A few years ago my good friend Dave Vaughan from The New Ecstatics prophesied that the mystic realm was coming- a realm of the supernatural, which the Christian Mystics of old walked in that would carry with it extraordinary miracles, signs and wonders. The Christian Mystics walked in some crazy stuff- they tapped into a realm of the supernatural that was unprecedented – there is lots of documented evidence throughout church history describing saints whose bodies’ physically lit up and glowed in the Glory like St. Columba; many saints defied gravity, St John of the Cross and St. Theresa of Avila were known for this. On one occasion it is well documented that St.Theresa was lifted off the ground in front of 30 people! We actually found the church where this miracle happened in Avila in Spain and there is a lot of Glory there! Other saints caused objects to levitate and even others still changed weather patterns, raised the dead, or defied death themselves.

Recently prophets like William Branham have moved in this realm- he was praying for a girl who was close to death and she was struggling with faith to be healed. He commanded the cord for the light to spin around in a circle without touching it and the girl screamed out “I believe! I believe!” and was healed!

I love the Catholic Church. They have preserved the stories and documentation of countless unbelievable miracles for many hundreds of years. They don’t actually take miracle claims lightly. They are very thorough in their research and do not claim a miracle has happened until there has been an in depth investigation with medical reports if need be. To be called a Saint in the Catholic Church you have to do at least 3 miracles- 2 alive and 1 when your dead. The most recent person to be recognised as a Saint is Padre Pio who lived the most extraordinary life of the supernatural. He was alive during WW2 and was known to have levitated, bi-located, gone invisible and he was the priest who made famous the stigmata. When he had been dead for 30 or more years, priests dug his body up to find that it had not decomposed – he has now become known as an incorruptible. There is a documentary about it on Youtube, where it was filmed happening and you can even see his body. There are many incorruptibles in the Church and you can find a list of the top 10 incorruptible bodies with pictures here.

I recently watched an interview with Bobby Conner and Paul Keith Davis talking about some of the crazy supernatural things they have experienced- things like the cloud of witnesses showing up at their meetings and commanding the snow to fall in the middle of summer. I love that stuff.

For a few years we pursued the Supernatural but it’s amazing that as we have focused more on the Gospel and Christ’s Finished Work over the last few years, this ‘realm’ has become more and more a part of our normal lives. It has become accessible and has invaded the every day with a sense of wonder. Many years ago the Supernatural would have been too much to handle, because it would have taken our focus of the Cross, but now having got the Cross centralised in everything and gazing upon Him there is an effortless explosions of this Mystic Realm all around as the natural overflow of LIFE! The more we focus on the cross, the more it happens!

So here are some of the crazy miracles we have seen lately!

Objects defying gravity

pennies on wall 1When Karen and Mark Lowe stayed with us a few weeks ago they told us about some guys in Bethel commanding objects to defy gravity and stick to the wall. They had been doing it in Antioch and so we gave it a go. There is a lot of anointing on doing this and it is very fun. I commanded three pennies to stick to the wall, and my friend Dave Vaughan walked in and commanded a £1 coin to stick to the wall first time. They stayed up there for a long time and there was nothing in the natural which could have held them in place on their own. It’s a crazy thing to do in the natural but a lot of fun!

Glowing

Countless saints have glowed when the Glory has shone out of them. Isaiah 60.2 says ‘See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.’ Isn’t it amazing that this has literally happened? There have been times where the Glory has become visible on me and glowed, so much so people have seen it! It has freaked me out but been really cool. All that is happening is that the darkness of our ignorance about the Gospel is being dispelled by the light of Truth about Christ.

Supernatural winds

My wife and I have felt the winds of God physically when praying for healing many times. Hebrews 1.7 says he makes ‘Angels like the winds’. When they show up often we can feel a wind on our hands or arms. The people we have prayed for can usually feel the cold wind too and then heat on their body and then are healed! Glory!

Oil and Gold dust

A couple of weeks ago I was with a friend of mine called Kris Goudie, listening to Darrell Stott speak. Darrell is a guy who has seen genuine revival in Indonesia – and moves in the supernatural like no other.  In the worship time the tips of Kris’ fingers were covered in oil! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Kris has seen some of the craziest healings in shops as he goes about his daily business.

We’ve had the Gold dust appearing on our hands, and over people we have been talking to about it for a number of years. On one occasion I was talking to a group of teenagers who were non-believers. I told them the story of when we had had Gold dust appear on my hands in our youth group in Wales. Instantly about 4 or 5 of the girls’ hands were covered in Gold and one girl had gold dust completely cover her jacket to the point she had to dust it off! They got blinged up and were freaked out!

Wheelchair Healing

Physical healing is the most common supernatural things my wife and I see. My friend Dave Vaughan and I were reminiscing about some of the crazy supernatural things we have seen together over the years. In Sheffield city centre a number of years ago, A man in a wheel chair  went passed us who couldn’t walk. Compassion hit me and I grabbed Dave to pray for this guy. His friends and family that were with him said they had not seen him walk properly for 15 years, some of them had never seen him walk. We layed hands on him and commanded strength to enter his body. We stood him up and he was very weak, his legs could not hold his weight properly. As we prayed we could feel strength and virtue enter his body and suddenly from nowhere he started pacing up and down the street, striding back and forth. His friends and family could literally not believe it!! The man selling cigarette lighters next to us said “I have never seen anything like that before!!”

Knowing information and conversations

William Branham said when he got words of knowledge it was like peering over the top of a wall. I have certainly striven to see this happen to me but recently it has just happened naturally. I’ve looked at people and supernaturally known information about them. A couple of weeks ago I looked at a woman in a worship time in our house and instantly knew she had a foot infection on her right foot! She later came and embarrassingly asked for prayer for it and I told her I already knew!

It’s interesting that Jesus knew the intention of people’s hearts and the conversations people had about Him. Sometimes when I have talked to people who have issues with gossip and slander a horrible smell has manifested and I’ve known what they’ve been up to!

A number of years ago I was with James Mayers, and we asked God to speak to us the same thing at the same time. Instantly we both looked at each other and knew before we even said anything that God had spoken the same thing to the both of us. It was really strange we both just knew it. Then at the same time we both shouted out the exact same thing. We were totally amazed and were laughing for ages about it!

Rainbow comes out of hand and appears in the sky!

I was meditating on Hope and the promises of God and how the rainbow is the sign of promise; that Jesus walked in the fulfillment of God’s promises and prophecies, under the 7 fold Spirit of God (Isaiah 11) and that the Throne of God that is within us is surrounded by a rainbow (Rev 4.3 + Ezek 1.28). I was thinking that Jesus is the fulfillment of our Hope, and thinking about this being restored over the UK. As I was looking up at the sky I went into a trance, was lifted up in the sky and in a vision saw a rainbow come out of my hand like a river. As I saw it in the vision it instantly physically appeared in the sky next to the sun! Jesus is sat at the right hand side of the Father and we are seated in Christ – where did the rainbow physically appear? On the right hand side of the sun!

Translation

A leader in our church in S. Wales was in Bulgaria on a mission trip. For a few nights in a row he was woken up at the exact same time in the night. One night he was taken into a vision where suddenly he was back in the church building in Llanelli. He was walking around, and saw that there was a gathering happening, saw what people were wearing and even saw some visitors from a church in North Wales there. When he phoned his wife back in Wales and described the scene she was freaked out! They had all had a meal in the building that night wearing those clothes with the visitors from North Wales!

Crazy Dreams

God speaks through dreams. At the top of our street in our old house in Sheffield there was a derelict building. My wife had a dream one night that she was inside the building and it had become a cafe. She saw the unusual shape of the rooms, and was inside a particular room upstairs, saw the furniture, and strange multi-coloured stair case. A few weeks later we could see that work was being done on the building and low and behold it had become a cafe! When we went for a coffee she could not believe what she was seeing- it was exactly like her dream – furniture, room layout and even the multi-coloured stairs. She had never even been in that building before! When we went to pay, on the counter was a book entitled “Customer dreams- write your dreams in this book”!! I wrote in the book and talked to the owner about mystical Christianity – he was Very interested!

The Father of Creation

babyubOrigins

Isn’t it incredible that Salvation awakens us to where we came from? Francois du Toit wrote an amazing thing the other day- “The father of lies is not the Father of the human race.” Isn’t it amazing that when we look at humanity we see people who share a common origin- God the Father, not the father of lies but the Father of Lights! It is mind blowing that He “knew us before he formed us within our mother’s womb!” In eternity’s womb you were known by the Father of all. His eyes have seen your unformed substance and He knitted you together for a purpose. You were made for intimacy. (Jeremiah 1.5 + Psalm 139)

The human race cries out for answers to the mystery “Where did we come from?” “Why are we here?” “What is my purpose?” because God didn’t just make Christians. He made the whole of the human race for intimacy with Himself. Before you had any choice in the matter God made you and knew you. Humanity’s destiny is not determined by its choices or actions, but by its origin.

There is an awakening that happens, a visitation of love that reconnects us with our Maker to hear the Father cry out “I’m here!” “I made you! You are mine!” “Your ears were made to hear My rhythms of love”. The cross brought answers.

Hebrews says something which is truly incredible “Since the One who saves and those who are saved have a common origin, Jesus doesn’t hesitate to treat them as family” Hebrews 2. 10-13 (Message) You have the same origin as Jesus, and are part of His family. You have God DNA running through your veins.

Your royal origin goes way back to before the foundations of the world. The Godhead conceived of a plan which would permanently unite humanity within Trinity.  They spoke and birthed creation.

Original Plan

So what was the Father’s plan? A few years ago I was in a worship time led by my friend Phil Moore. Totally spontaneously I was taken by the Spirit in to a different room in Heaven. I actually felt lifted out of my body. Now I don’t believe that one minute I wasn’t in Heaven and the next minute, I went to Heaven, No, we are always seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus, sometimes the reality of where we are manifests more fully however.

I’ve heard some describe a place called the ‘The Classroom of Heaven’ and its possible that’s where I was. I could see desks and a blackboard at the front. There was a man at the front with a mustache and he was teaching. He said “Ah, you need an increased understanding of the Fathers’s plan for humanity from the start of creation right through to the cross” and instantly I got a download of various scriptures and the Lord opened my eyes to stuff I’d never seen before.

I saw that It was always God’s plan to send Christ. It wasn’t a plan B or a reaction to His plan A going out of control or even a reaction to the fall. God had a plan A and that was for humanity to live in intimacy and Union with their Father within the Trinity. When God created the Universe He made Humanity in His image, and was pleased, He even called it ‘Good’. But Sin brought corruption and death to His image. This wasn’t a deviation from His plan, because He was about to bring what was ‘good’ into ‘perfection’. And it was the suffering of Christ at the hands of our sinful nature that did it!! 

Plan A brought Greater Glory! 2 Corin 3 talks about the Greater Glory of the New Covenant. God brought His Glory which was His Goodness, through Christ’s suffering into a whole greater realm!

In the classroom God also highlighted these verses from Hebrews 2:

10 For it was an act worthy [of God] and fitting [to the divine nature] that He, for Whose sake and by Whom all things have their existence, in bringing many sons into glory, should make the Pioneer of their salvation perfect [should bring to maturity the human experience necessary to be perfectly equipped for His office as High Priest] through suffering.

Christ brought the human nature ‘into maturity so we could handle His high office’- His Greater Glory within the Trinity. He wanted us High and Lifted up within the Godhead. He dragged the human nature to its ultimate conclusion – death because of sin.

“and then, through the experience of death, (He was) crowned so much higher than any angel, with a glory “bright with Eden’s dawn light.” In that death, by God’s grace, he fully experienced death in every person’s place.” Hebrews 2. 5-9 (Message)

Humanity couldn’t handle it in Eden, but Christ the second Adam and Perfect One, destroyed the corrupted seed of Adam and restored the God seed, by uniting us in His death and resurrection.

light-through-cloudsI believe in Awakening – Awakening caused by Eden’s dawn light, breaking through the dark ignorance about our origin; of the  common origin we share with Christ. Blazing forth from the Throne of Glory is revelation saying “I Knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.” The Father’s family, sharing in His DNA can walk in Eden again, in a GREATER GLORY, the Glory won through Christ’s sacrifice.

Man the encounter in the classroom was powerful. After the worship I even remained in it while I was talking to people and going for dinner!

Word of knowledge:

The God DNA Brings the Power of family’s namesake and again we’ve seen physical healing in the last few weeks. I believe that there is someone reading this, who is hard of hearing and has a certain amount of deafness, you may even wear a hearing aid. God says: You are made in my image and your ears are made to hear my voice- so I decree hearing to those ears and 100% restoration in Jesus’ name!
