Keep the home fires burning 🔥

Today we were encouraged to guard against apathy and allowing our love for Jesus to grow cold. As believers, we can be vulnerable to this at the moment because of not being able to meet together as easily (or at all for some people) because of the COVID restrictions. We can become discouraged by the lawlessness and wickedness we see around us, by false prophecies and words.

Let us watch out for each other and not become isolated and allow our fire to diminish but let us keep the bonds of love, encouraging each other with Palms, hymns, spiritual songs, teachings, words etc, and above all keep the fire burning within each one of us for Christ Jesus. Lord, I ask that you please breathe on the embers today and fan the flames into fire again.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:23-25

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:10-12

Believers are trying to come together in different ways at the present time whether it is over zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime, teams, this platform or other ways to stay connected with each other. It is not easy and some may find it difficult but let’s not give up. We can reach out to each other in different ways. Where two or three are gathered together Christ is in the midst of us. Praise God. We are Christ’s body and connected to each other in and through Christ who is the head of us all.

I pray for those who may be feeling isolated or disconnected at the moment that you will know that you are still connected and to draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. If the Holy Spirit is convicting hearts of apathy or a lack of fire and zeal then I pray that repentance will come to our hearts and we will stir ourselves up and put our hands to the plough at this time. It is not wise for us to sit back and do nothing in these days.

The Lord is all sufficient for us in these present days. His grace is more than sufficient for us. The Lord is encouraging us to come to His table and eat and drink of His provision and not to leave the table until we are satisfied. When we eat our meals we know when we are full and the Lord wants us to know that same feeling of fullness in and through His Holy Spirit. He is a God of abundance. Let us fill ourselves up in Him. The Lord does not want us to be satisfied with crumbs but to come and feast at His table. We can also help feed each other out of the abundance that God gives to us.

When restrictions start lifting let us not to get distracted by the things which do not truly satisfy us. The Lord says “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.” Isaiah 55:2

May we use this time of confinement wisely and redeem the days God has blessed us with. May God refine us in His Holy Fire so that we are ready to do His will.

Let us keep the home fires burning 🔥

Today..God is speaking

In the night, I was wakened with theses words “Today, if you will hear His voice DO NOT HARDEN your heart.” I felt a great stirring from the Lord to share these words with us all today so that we can ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the true condition of our hearts.

The Lord is speaking in these days to us through His Holy Scriptures and through His Holy Spirit. He wants us to hear His voice above all others. Especially each day. What is God saying Today. Let us have ears to hear as the Spirit says, what the Lord is speaking to us, individually and corporately as His body of believers. His church.

I have posted below the scriptures which speak of our hearts being hardened. We are warned to guard our hearts against unbelief, sin, unfaithfulness and disobedience as these will hinder and stop us entering into what God has for us.

My dear friends, I pray that we will seek the Lord for His guidance today and repent of anything the Holy Spirit reveals to us through Holy Scripture which is causing our hearts to be hard. Sometimes we don’t realise that there can be a hardening of our hearts. It can be very subtle.

Many years ago, my husband was extremely ill and thought he was having a heart attack. His symptoms were of a heart attack and in the ambulance and at the hospital, the tests were showing a heart attack. He was very young at the time and you would not think he could be suffering a heart attack. He was very healthy and fit. Even when the ambulance crew came, they laughed with us at the very thought but all soon changed when the ECG machine tested his heart.

However, the Consultant at the hospital said that they would not diagnose a heart attack until the blood tests came back. It was the blood which would tell them the condition of the heart. When the blood test came back there had been no evidence of a heart attack.

The consultant informed us that it was a virus that was attacking my husbands heart. The virus worked by hardening the tissue around the heart and squeezing it and if the virus was left untreated it would continue eventually causing the heart itself to become hardened. Sin, unbelief, disobedience in our lives are like that virus. Left unchecked they will work to cause great harm to our hearts.

The good news was that the treatment of this condition which was affecting my husbands’s heart was so simple. It was a little tablet which you could buy cheaply and easily from any pharmacy, an anti-inflammatory tablet. It would quickly break down the effects caused by the virus. Praise God it soon did and my husband quickly recovered.

The same is true for us. The hardening of our hearts can be healed through humbling ourselves, confessing our sins before God, repentance and the cleansing of our hearts by the washing of the Word and the blood of Jesus. We become restored and healed. Our hearts are cleansed and softened.

I pray that you will be encouraged and challenged today. That you hear His voice and respond to God. Have a blessed day. Scriptures posted below for ease.

“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness, Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years.

Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’ So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”

Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice: “Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, As in the day of trial in the wilderness, When your fathers tested Me; They tried Me, though they saw My work. “Psalm 95:6-9

“For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. “Hebrews 3:7-19

“But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened? Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?
Mark 8:17-18 –

Christ in our hearts. The King of Glory

Approaching Midnight

Hello all, I do hope you are well and continue to keep well and healthy especially in these challenging times and as we enter into a new phase of lockdown. I pray God has mercy on us in these days and thank Him for his continued faithfulness, provision and grace. God is good. Praise His holy name.

For a number of months, the Lord has been encouraging me to redeem the time and use the days allotted to me wisely. I have written down the following as the Lord laid it on my heart and hope it encourages you in these days. May God’s face shine upon you and bless you.

The days are here for the glory of God’s sons and daughters to be revealed. Arise and shine for the days are dark but the glory of the Lord covers the seas. The eagles will mount up with wings of fire. They will see in the spirit with eyes of flames. Their breath will destroy the enemy. My Hand is never too short to save. Many are called but few are chosen. Rise up and seize the day. It belongs to you to do with it what you will, but I have already accounted for all the days for you, so be prepared for the day of accountability draws near. Fulfil your purpose in Me. Be bold. You are my sons and daughters of the Most High God. When I issue a decree then it is a thing already accomplished even Satan knows that. Be wise stewards of the days ahead. Redeem the times for they are evil, show grace, mercy & love to your enemies for they will be many. To him who holds faithful to the end there is a crown of life waiting. See the clock – it is about to strike midnight. The midnight hour approaches so be ready and do not be caught sleeping.

Approaching midnight

My friend Heather encouraged me with these verses from Hebrews “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:23-25

We may be finding it difficult to meet in these days as we once did but let us strive to keep the bonds of love and stay connected.

Blessings to you in Jesus x

Let us shine like stars..

Jesus has a lot to say about service through His teachings, His parables and also His exhortations to the 7 churches in Revelation. We know the foundation of our faith in Christ that we are saved by grace not works, but we must not neglect our service to the King of Kings and are called to let our light, His light in us, shine before the world. These are the days that the Lord is exhorting His church to rise and shine.

Jesus said that we are the light of the world and as a light on a lamp stand gives light to the whole house so should our light be visible to all so that men will see our good works and give glory to God. Matthew 5:14-16. I am also reminded of John’s vision of Jesus in Revelation as He walked amongst the 7 churches who were shown as 7 lamp stands, the reminder that each church is a lamp stand for His light to shine. Representatives of Jesus. To each church, Jesus said “I know your works”. He is saying the same to us today. I know your works.

As Jesus encouraged and called those churches to account so we too can learn lessons from His words. His exhortation to the church of Ephesus is not to forget our first love, Jesus. We can so easily get caught up with works of themselves and become so busy that we can neglect our relationship with Jesus. If it is not our love for Him and His love in us that motivates us then Jesus says we are to repent and return to our first love. To remember the fervent love we had for Jesus when we first encountered Him and His love for us. To be zealous for Him and not lukewarm and indifferent as the church in Laodicea.

The church at Sardis had a reputation for being alive but Jesus said this was not actually the case. Jesus had tested their works and found them not perfect before God. This was a wake up call. To recognise things as they really were so that the church could repent and then take what was still alive and nurture it so that it could grow. As Jesus said to the church at Thyatira, who had corrupted themselves by allowing false prophecy, false teaching and sexual immorality, that He is the one who searches each mind and heart and will give to each one according to their works. Jesus warns against following false teachings and false doctrines. They will distort the light and corrupt our works. Jesus wants us to wake up and recognise false and corrupt things which influence us. To anoint our eyes with His eye salve so we can see clearly.

Jesus is calling us to examine ourselves, prepare ourselves so that we can shine. As disciples of Christ we have much to offer the world, not just in being good citizens and doing good things but also in terms of Godly wisdom and knowledge, insight and understanding. In the bible we are told that the sons of Issachar had the ability to understand the times and seasons that they lived in which enabled them to give the right advice to the people of Israel so that they knew what to do. 1 Chroncles 12:32. We so need that Godly ability in the body of Christ today for the days we live in. Understanding the times and seasons and recognising what God is calling us to do and hearing His voice so that we can advise others whether in our families, work lives, businesses or other positions of influence.

I believe that the Lord is reminding us in this season, where such great needs and injustices are evident in every part of society and in the midst of this global pandemic, to take every opportunity to trust God, obey God and do good because when Jesus comes again, which He will, then He will test our works in this life and reward us accordingly. The question is what we have done in obedience to His calling and according to the measure of gifting and opportunity that have been given to us. What has motivated us in our minds and hearts.

Many years ago, I had a vision of Jesus which impacted me greatly. I saw him stood in front of me and as He held His hands out to me I heard him say very clearly “well done my good and faithful servant”. He then gestured for me to look behind him and I saw this incredible amount of amazing things. I couldn’t describe them in detail to you but I knew they were items of incredible value and beauty and I couldn’t believe how much there was. I remember being completely overwhelmed and asked the Lord what they were for as I couldn’t imagine they were for me. I had done nothing exceptional with my life to deserve such a rich reward. Jesus simply said “ For you, for your faithfulness”. Then He gestured again, and I saw another amazing amount of things and He said “but all this could have been yours as well”. I knew that Jesus wasn’t disappointed in me but He was saddened that He could not give me all that was mine to obtain. I had missed opportunities for service either through disobedience, fear or countless other things which had stopped me. The little foxes which I had allowed to ruin my vineyard.

It would be a trap for me to use that vision to do lots of works for works sake. It wasn’t the message that the Lord had for me. He was encouraging me to remain faithful to Him and His call on my life. To persevere and not give up until My race is run. Jesus reminds me that He is My first love and My heart belongs to Him. I pray that when He calls I will answer and be bold to do all that He calls me to do in service of Him. One day when I do stand before Him I trust I will hear those words “well done good and faithful servant”.

I just want to finish with the following words of encouragement to us.

I heard the Lord say the following in the Spirit. It is time for My church to examine itself. To look carefully at what it is doing. The example it is setting. I am coming and I come first to My church. May they be found ready when I come to test their works with fire. Let him who is doing good continue to do so but examine the heart. For out of the heart comes every selfish thing and motivation. Let My Spirit guide and lead you. Let My Spirit be the one that breathes life into everything you do for Me as then you will reap a harvest, not just in this life but in the life to come. Let your good works be seen by others so they may glorify your father in heaven. It is time to rise and shine like the stars in the sky. This is the day for the church of My people to be the source of nutrition and goodness for others. To give freely out of an abundant storehouse, for I am the bread of life and the pure living water. I will never run dry and I will never run out of provision for My people. To those who are called and chosen by Me and whose name is written in My book of life and My name is written on their foreheads for all to see. Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of God my Father has risen upon you.

Blessings to you in Jesus name. Amen 🙏

Shine like stars

How beautiful on..

The mountains are the feet of Him who brings good news 😀

I have some good news to give you today which some of you already know (but it’s encouraging to be reminded) and to some it may be the first time you heard.

Jesus is alive.

Hallelujah Praise God 👏👏👏👏

He has conquered sin and death.

Jesus is seated at the right hand of God with all things under His feet …..that is all demonic principalities and powers which are beneath His feet. Colossians 2:15

I read something the other day that concerned me regarding the power of demonic forces. Reference was made to the outcome of a battle which the prophet Elisha had said would be won by the Israelites but instead they were defeated when the King who was losing sacrificed his own son at the walls. The battle was turned. This story in 2 Kings 3 in the Old Testament shows us the power of blood sacrifice.

However, the posting seemed to suggest that the unleashing of demonic forces against the body of Christ and prophetic words which had been given could overcome God’s will and stop it being fulfilled.

I did not have peace about this. The Lord reminded me that this story is in the Old Testament and was before Jesus came and His sacrifice which changed everything. We are living in the power of a NEW COVENANT OF HIS BLOOD.

The Lord wants to remind us of the truth that there has never been a sacrifice more powerful than the one made by Jesus when He gave up His position with His Father in heaven and came to this earth He created and died for us.

The sacrifice of Jesus and the shedding of His blood 🩸 was more than sufficient to deliver us from the power of sin and darkness and to break all curses and the effects of sin off our lives.

There is no blood sacrifice that can be made now that is more powerful than the blood of Jesus. One precious drop of Jesus blood 🩸 which fell to this earth and was shed for each one of us is more powerful than any demonic sacrifice which is or has ever been made to the enemy or occult powers.

That King we read of in 2 Kings 3 1-27 certainly knew the power of the blood sacrifice especially of a son. Jesus was the son of God who became our sacrifice. That is the most powerful sacrifice there has ever been made. No one took Jesus life from Him. He freely laid down His life for us.

When you pray remember the position that you know pray from. Remember that you are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus who is in authority over all principalities and powers and rulers of darkness.

You have the mind of Christ. You are part of the body of Christ and the body is connected to the Head.

Is Jesus worried about Satan’s strategies and attempts to manipulate? No because Jesus knows all things and Satan has been defeated by Jesus.

Connect your mind and thoughts with the mind of Christ and pray with authority against the wicked strategies of the enemy and pull down His strongholds.

Is there a war going on? Yes there certainly is but we are soldiers of Christ and we come from and fight from a place of victory to push back the enemy and to enforce the victory of the Cross.

We should never forget the finished work of the Cross and the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The bible tells us in 1 John not to believe every spirit but to test it to see if it is of God because many false prophets have gone out into the world. The test is this “Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God”.

Any word that denies Christ and the power of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and resurrection must be tested against the word of God.

I want to encourage you to remain rooted and firm in your trust and faith in Jesus Christ who is all powerful and victorious and is seated now in the highest place and at the right hand of God who has put all things under His feet.

Be encouraged by these words in Colossians.

Colossians 1. 13 “ He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the son of His love in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. V 20. And by Him to reconcile all things to Himself by Him whether things in earth or things in heaven having made peace through the blood of His cross”

Colossians 2 v 8. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit according to tradition of men, according to the principles of the world and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily and you are complete in Him who is Head of all principality and power.

V15. Having disarmed principalities and powers He made a public spectacle of them TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT.

Lift up your heads oh you gates and be lifted up you everlasting doors and the King of Glory shall come in. Who is this King of Glory ..The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads oh you gates Lift up you everlasting doors and the King of Glory shall come in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord of hosts is the King of glory. Psalm 24 7 -10.

Jesus said that He will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Why not? Because He is the King of glory spoken of by David in the Psalm and the gates of hell could not stand against him. He descended into hell and took the keys of death and hell and He has them now. Amen

Bless you this day in Jesus precious name.

The Holy Spirit

My friend Karen shared these encouraging words about the Holy Spirit with me and I hope they bless you too;

I am the still small voice;

I am the strong wind;

I am the sound of many waters;

I am the fire from above;

I am the One that lives in you;

I am the One that walks by your side;

I am the One that guides your paths;

I am the One that wakens your spirit;

If you want to get closer;

If you want to walk in righteousness;

If you want me to set you alight;

Just ask and seek;

I am there;

you just need to find me;

I say seek me and you will find me. Amen

‘I baptise you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Matthew 3:11

“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’
Luke 11:13

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’
Acts 1:8

‘When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father – the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father – he will testify about me. And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.”
John 15:26-27

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
Matthew 28:19-20

Thank you Jesus for sending us the Holy Spirit which is freely available for all of us believers in you today 🙏

If you have not received the baptism of the Holy Spirit then I encourage you to ask and believe in faith that you will receive the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit will help you to live out your life in Christ. You will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit which are there for you and the fruit of the Holy Spirit, the character of Christ will develop in your life.

Blessings to you this day in Jesus

The alarm goes again…

In late October I shared about my heavenly awakening in the night by the sound of a loud alarm clock.

I was awoken again this morning at 4.00 a.m by the same sound.

I believe the Lord is calling His people to pray in these days and to call out to Him with an urgency.

God wants to give us His heavenly perspective on what is happening and reveal the enemies strategies in this hour so that we can pray with wisdom and understanding as the Holy Spirit leads us.

We have been warned many times about deception in these days. The enemy has a great strategy of deception at work. His lies must be exposed.

We are living in unprecedented times but God has called us ..that’s you and me ….and appointed us for these days. We are the Esthers, the Daniels, the Josephs for these days.

We may feel weak and insignificant but in God we are mighty and powerful. When we humble ourselves before God and call on our Heavenly Father then we become more than conquerors in His name.

All of heaven is cheering us on and encouraging us not to give up but to remain faithful to Him that has called us.

All nations have been impacted by COVID 19. The scale of international debt is incredible and that will come with a heavy price to pay. There are economies of the world which have been decimated by this disease and the full impact is yet to be felt. The UK as a nation is now in so much debt.

America, Britain and Europe are all in the midst of turmoil with the presidential election and Brexit happening. We need Gods’ help in these days. Who is there to turn to except Him for He alone has the words of eternal life.

In October the Lord said that many are confused about what is happening. We have seen this following the U.S. election result but God is still sovereign. His word does not return void but accomplishes what it was sent forth to do. Gods word is powerful.

There is fertile ground for deception and much deception, lies and false news is being spread. Many are searching for truth and the Lord says if you Seek Him you will Find Him as He is the Truth, the Way and the Life.

Let us pray and encourage each other to pray. Blessings to you this day in Jesus precious name.

Faith for the race

Our pastor at church encouraged us a year ago to run the race of faith set before us with these words:

You can run a lap of faith;

One Step at a time – Mark 1

Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people.’ At once they left their nets and followed him. Mark 1:17-18

One Command at a time – Deuteronomy 11

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always. Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. Deuteronomy 11:1,8

One Day at a time- Colossians 1

In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world – just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. Colossians 1:6

One Seed at a time – Matthew 13

But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.’ Matthew 13:18-23

One Test at a time -James 1

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

Whatever lap of your race you are on. Keep going..you will cross the finishing line and win the prize.

Have a blessed day 😀🙏

Fresh Oil

“Fresh Oil…You need fresh oil ….a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit”. These were the words I heard in my spirit this morning from the Lord as I was preparing for a time of fellowship.

I knew the Lord was right and felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to act on this word. It was a now word. I did need a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit. I did need His fresh outpouring.

I need more of the Lord and less of me. My flesh is weak but I am reminded that the same God that raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives in me by the power of the Holy Spirit. Praise God. Glory to His name. Our awesome God.

I felt prompted to go and find my anointing bottle. It had some oil in it but it has been some time since I had used it. I emptied it out and filled the bottle with fresh oil.

This is a picture of that little bottle. I’m not very good yet at posting photos so it may look giant sized!😀

I received this bottle from my Dad, William who received it from his Dad, David.

When prompted by the Holy Spirit I use it to pray and anoint people with oil as the Lord leads. Today was a day to put it to use again. Hallelujah 🙏

After a time of praise and prayer with friends the Lord reminded me of a picture I had seen at least a year ago. Whilst praying, I saw golden oil being poured out from heaven onto believers. I was stood with arms held high and this golden oil was being poured out on us. Not in small amounts but a mighty outpouring. We were drenched in this golden oil from head to foot. It was an incredible picture.

There is a scripture in Zechariah 4 which says “Not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit says the Lord”. Zechariah saw in the spirit olive branches beside two gold pipes that pours out golden oil. I have pasted the verses below at the end of this post. I was reminded of this scripture again today.

I believe that as Christians we need the Word and Spirit in our lives. These are the days that God has given to us to declare His glory and bring glory to His name. God wants to use us….we are Christ’s body on this earth. We are His hands, His feet, His voice. There are people that we all come into contact with. People in our sphere of influence. We have the Holy Spirit to empower us to be witnesses of Christ’s resurrection power. The good news of salvation. Jesus wants to reach them and speak into their lives. We are co-workers with Christ. I cannot do it in my own strength or my way…I need to be led by the Holy Spirit. His guidance, His wisdom, His timing, His power. Praise God. I just need to be ready and willing to act when God calls me.

I pray that if like me you need fresh oil in your life today that you will ask Jesus to fill you afresh. May you receive a fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit today.

“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”
Ephesians 1:17-23 – https://www.biblegateway.com

“Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. He asked me, ‘What do you see?’ I answered, ‘I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.’ I asked the angel who talked with me, ‘What are these, my lord?’ He answered, ‘Do you not know what these are?’ ‘No, my lord,’ I replied. So he said to me, ‘This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty. ‘What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of “God bless it! God bless it!”’ Then the word of the Lord came to me: ‘The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you. ‘Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?’ Then I asked the angel, ‘What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?’ Again I asked him, ‘What are these two olive branches beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?’ He replied, ‘Do you not know what these are?’ ‘No, my lord,’ I said.
Zechariah 4:1-13 – https://www.biblegateway.com

Blessings to you in Jesus’ precious name. Amen
