A day of Removal and Replacement

I had this word a few weeks ago from the Lord but felt that the Lord wanted me to keep it and release it today.

I believe this is what I heard the Lord say to me: “I have been watching from My throne. I have been testing and weighing to see who is putting their faith in Me. To see those who are acting justly and choosing to do what is right.

I seek for those who will carry My light. I am now going to carry out a removal. Those who are in positions of authority, starting at the very top in nations and governments will now start to be removed. You will see kingdoms and nations being shaken and leaders will start to be toppled like dominoes.

There will be others now who will be ready to take their place who I have been preparing for such a time as this. In Esther’s day I removed Queen Vashti and Esther was ready to take her place. I had prepared her to be chosen. So it will be with My people who I have prepared. Some in the hidden places, the secret places to be revealed at the right time.

The people I have prepared are for all levels of government and influence within the nations-in places of business, innovation and media. People who will rise up and speak My words and act righteously and with mercy.

They will be full of Godly wisdom as my son Solomon, they will be bold and courageous as my son, David and they will be gentle and humble like My Son Jesus.

I am at work in the darkness. I am at work in the secret place and even now I start to draw back the curtain so that My plan for removal and replacement will start to take place. Look and see and watch what will now start to be revealed.

Pray for those who have been called for such a time as this. That they will boldly seize the opportunity which opens to them. That they will walk through the open door and take their place. That fear and anxiety will not stop them. That doubt will not be a snare to them but that they will go forward boldly and occupy the positions that I have for them.

The time is coming for the doors of opportunity to be opened. Be bold and seize the day and move into the inheritance that the Lord has for His Saints.

“I will depose you from your office, and you will be ousted from your position. In that day I will summon my servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah. I will clothe him with your robe and fasten your sash around him and hand your authority over to him. He will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem and to the people of Judah. I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.
Isaiah 22:19-22

God will lift you up at the proper time

Joy in the hard times

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,

YET

I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Saviour. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. Habakkuk 3:17-19

I want to encourage you today if you are going through hardship and difficulties to take comfort and hope from these verses.

Habakkuk speaks of a time when there was on the face of it nothing to be joyful about. There was no fruit, no food, no oil and it was a time of barrenness and famine. It was the worst of times.

This was the truth of the situation. Sometimes we also need to acknowledge the truth about our situations rather than pretend everything is ok.

There are two very important words in these verses which will help us. THOUGH and YET.

We don’t deny our circumstances (that is the though) but (the yet) we acknowledge that true joy is not in our circumstances but our joy is found in God and His salvation. We praise Him because of who He is and His great mercy and grace towards us. We trust in His goodness to us.

We choose to rejoice and praise regardless of how we feel and regardless of our circumstances. That is the tough choice. It is difficult to choose to praise when you are in the middle of really tough times. To choose to say -Despite what is happening in my life, despite how I feel – “I will rejoice” I choose to rejoice and praise you God.

The promise in these verses is that when we look up from our circumstances to our Father in Heaven, He strengthens us and causes us to rise up. We rise up above our circumstances and we have the strength to overcome our circumstances. We discover that true joy is found only in God.

The joy that these verses speak of is a really exuberant joy. The type of joy that you can’t contain. It makes you dance for joy, it is full of zest and life.

Everything may be wrong in Habakkuk’s world but he is dancing with joy. What a picture. It’s a work of God to enable this to happen in us because it makes no sense. It flies in the face of common sense to be dancing with joy in these circumstances.

A few more encouraging verses about joy:

“Your presence is fullness of joy” Psalm 16:11

“Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning” Psalm 30:5

“To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them the oil of joy for mourning” Isaiah 61:3.

This is the divine exchange. God takes our sadness and grief and gives us His joy instead.

Jesus points the way to joy in John 15:11. “These things I have spoken to you that My joy may remain in you and that your joy may be full”. That is the joy that I want to have. Jesus’ joy in me because I am abiding in Him. To experience Christ’s own joy within us.

Jesus endured the cross because of the joy set before Him. He looked ahead to the promise. “Who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame; and has sat down at the right hand of God”. Hebrews 12:2

If Joy is in material things…we will be disappointed eventually.

If Joy is in results..we will be disappointed eventually.

If Joy is in experiences…we will be disappointed eventually.

If our Joy is found in Christ Jesus the rock of our salvation we will never be disappointed.

Blessings to you today in Jesus x

Let us choose true joy which is found in Jesus

Waiting Patiently…

I have been reminded of this word which the Lord gave me in August 2020 which I posted on False Manifestations…Watchmen Arise. I also posted recently on The trap of deceit and there is a warning theme in these posts against deception which the Lord is bringing back to my attention.

Satan is a counterfeiter of the things of God. It’s such a wicked thing to deceive people in this way by pretending to be of God or a move of God. It is one of Satan’s craftiest weapons.

If as believers we just hunger and seek after signs and wonders as “evidence” that the Holy Spirit is at work or present then we are in danger of being deceived by false spirits and false manifestations. This will be especially true if we are not rooted and grounded in sound biblical doctrine and the true gospel of Jesus.

This is why discipleship and having a correct understanding of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit are so important. The Word without the Spirit in our lives is not in balance nor is the Spirit without the Word. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. He leads and guides us into truth.

The bible teaches us that satan can appear as an angel of light as do false apostle and false teachers. Paul says this in his letter to the church at Corinth:

“For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15

Have you ever been blinded by a bright light? If someone has ever shone a light directly into your eyes then you will know what I mean. You become dazzled and blinded by that light and you cannot then see anything else around you. This is like the blinding light of Satan. It takes your attention from everything else and blinds you to the truth. God is light and this is why satan also pretends to be light.

Satan still acts in this way today and he will until the end. Counterfeits and deception are still part of his schemes but as Christians we do not have to fear deception but place our confidence in Jesus the rock of our salvation and allow Him to lead and guide us.

If we are ever in doubt then we should not blindly accept what is being said or done but test it. Test it against biblical teaching, test it with fellow believers and test it in prayer with God.

This is part of the word that I posted previously on this theme;

You will hear a rumour or a word that “The Lord is there ” – Jehovah Shammah” but the Lord says do not be fooled.

The Lord says that in the past many have run after the manifestations of the Holy Spirit because of a deep hunger to meet the Lord and encounter His presence but these have often been false manifestations and have led people into the wrong things and opened up a door in their lives to the enemy by accepting a false anointing or a false spirit to oppress them.

The Lord says that you don’t have to run after manifestations of His glory. The glory of the Lord is coming to you.

Wait patiently for the Lord he says – He will come. He will not disappoint you.

The Lord says that He has already warned us in His word not to run after such manifestations or people that claim to be Him. He says not to do it -for if you do then you will be deceived.

As the lightning streaked across the sky as it did in the storms that roared across this nation in the night and which all could see clearly in the sky, then so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.

Do not be deceived. Do not go running after false manifestations of the Spirit and the glory.

You will know the awesome presence of the Lord for He is Holy and where He is – is Holy. You will not be able to stand in His presence. Every knee will bow & every tongue confess that He is Lord. He is Lord & there is no other.

The Lord does things according to His Word. He does not act outside of His Word.

Keep the Word of God close to your heart. Feed on the Word of God. Be guided by the Word and do not be deceived for many false prophecies & false words are circulating at the moment. Many false prophets and leaders are rising up in this hour to lead His people astray.

Do not be deceived says the Lord. Say true to His Word – Put your trust in God & do not be deceived. God is faithful and He is true. He will sustain you and protect you at these times.

Watchmen – Take your place on the city walls. Arise & look out at the horizons.

What do you see?

Warn the body of Christ. Sound the alarm. You need to watch in these days ahead says the Lord. There is an acceleration now occurring and things will happen fast. There is a suddenly approaching – Look & Wait. Sound the alarm when the time comes and warn the body of Christ.

Blessings to you this day in Jesus name.

GOD IN THE RECYCLING

Morning all, I hope you are well. Today’s post is a story from my friend Heather.

The Roasting Pan”

One day as I took my roasting pan out of the oven, I looked at it in dismay -what a mess. It was originally quite an expensive one but it needed a lot of scrubbing to restore it. My thoughts were- bin it !! I can always get a new one and start afresh.

But what did I hear the Lord say to me “good job I didn’t do that with you

Yes I thought. God has taken great pains over me – to clean me up and make me fit for purpose, so that I can help others see that God loves and cares for all He has made.

God loves us and He loves us too much to leave us in our messy state and he definitely doesn’t think we are not worthy of being cleaned. He would never bin us.

Sometimes, it takes quite a few times to clean us up because we still mess up. In fact God never stops working on us. He knows we are human and will mess up, but He is always ready and willing to give us a clean start.

So let’s think more of ourselves because of what Jesus has done for us and each day set out with a clean start to be used by God.

We have been redeemed and cleansed by the precious blood of Christ.

We are new creations in Jesus.

In the Potter’s hands we can be reshaped and made as new.

Jeremiah 29 v11 says “ I know the plans I have for you to prosper you and not to harm you . Plans to give you a hope and a future.”

Have a blessed day x

All cleaned up 😊

Overcoming the Giants

This is an encouraging word which I received from the Lord last week during a prayer vigil. I hope it is an encouragement for you as well. I heard the Lord say to me:

I have brought My people to such a time and such a place as this. In the Spirit you are in a very wide place – can you see? As far as the eye can see is the territory that I am giving to you My children, it is yours. It is your glorious inheritance in Me. You will stretch far and wide – even beyond the horizon will your influence be felt. Your territory will be magnificent.

All that has stood in your way – the strongholds of the enemy will be demolished, pulled down and rooted out by My anointed ones. You will face your giants and you will overthrow them. The giants in your land are being overthrown. Giants of false religion, giants of wickedness, giants of rebellion, giants of depravity and filth, giants who take captives and feed on My people.

Enough is enough. My remnant, My faithful ones, My anointed ones – they will rise up with wings as Eagles and they will drive out the enemy from this territory.


I am bringing a fresh anointing of My Holy Spirit upon you. The wind of My Spirit is going to blow and propel you into places you have never been before in the physical and in the spiritual realm.

This is the day of the Lord. Rejoice and be glad for your King has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

My blessed and beloved ones. My angels are encamped all around you. I have sent them to help you and to carry out My commands. They will war with you and they are for you in the battle to evict the enemy from your territory.


All honour and glory and power belongs to the Lamb who sits upon the throne forever and ever. Amen and Amen. Let all who know the King say Amen.


Later as we prayed I saw a vision of an angel in the Spirit. He had a scroll tied with red ribbon in his right hand and in his left hand he had a trumpet. He was blowing the trumpet to awaken the people of God. I believe that this angel was sent to carryout God’s commands which were written in the scroll and which were in response to the prayers of the Saints. As the angel blew the trumpet, I saw the land of the nation being ploughed up and down its breadth and its length. I believe it was God’s Word and the prayers of the Saints which were breaking up the soil.

These verses which Peter spoke when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of Pentecost from the Prophet Joel were brought to my remembrance. I pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon us.

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.”
Acts 2:16-18
