Spiritual Songs & declarations

In June this year (3/6/19) as I was praying the Lord gave me 4 songs which were each in a different tongue and which were not my usual tongue.   The Holy Spirit gave me the interpretation to each tongue.    I recorded the songs and interpretations and then each day during June I played them as prayers and declarations as the Holy Spirit led me in various locations and at different times during the day.

This Sunday (17/11) as I was walking in the park, the Lord suddenly brought one of the tongues to my remembrance and I started speaking it out again.    I felt led by the Lord to share the interpretations here at this time.    The last interpretation contains references and speaks of cutting off the enemies head -this is in the spiritual sense of course of cutting off the influence/authority of the enemy which is being manifested in various ways e.g. through witchcraft, the leviathan/jezebellic spirit and many other ways in opposition to God and believers.

The first song was a declaration towards the North.

“For I speak to the North and I say to you; You will come no further.  The boundary is set; the line is drawn.   The Lord has said no further.  He has set a boundary and you may not cross it until He calls you forth but at this time you can come no further.  The boundary of the nation is set and we say to you North – you will come no further.   The boundary is set.  You will stay, you will stay, you will stay, until you are called forth but until that time the Lord says no further.    The boundary is drawn, the boundary is drawn, the boundary is drawn.  No further, No further, No further, No further, No further.   The voice of the Lord has spoken.  It is set.  It is set.  It is set. ”

The second song was much faster – it was partly sung and partly spoken and it’s rhythm reminded me of horses’ hooves.    It is a song of a time of an offensive strike against the enemy and enforcing the victory of the Cross of Christ.

“For the Lord God has sent forth His warriors against you and see the horses run and see the hounds run and see the eagles fly.  For they come after you, you enemies of the Cross of Christ.  They come after you and they say – you are going from this land.  We break down your strongholds now in the name of Jesus and we set forth the lion upon you now.  We release the lion and we say – Go forth and plunder the kingdom of darkness.   Plunder the kingdom of darkness and bring out the captives and set the captives free.  We crush you satan under our feet in the name of Jesus,  by the power and the authority of Christ and from the Cross of Christ, –  we lift it up and we say victory, victory, victory is ours in the name of Jesus and we lift up the Cross, we lift up the Cross, we lift up the banner and we sing a Hallelujah, we sing a Hallelujah, we sing a Hallelujah.  For the light has broken into the darkness and we push the darkness back and we have set forth light and we say – Let there be light in the name of Jesus and we call forth the captives and we say – Hear the word of the Lord -Be set free now in Jesus’ name.  You are no longer under bondage, you are no longer under a yoke of slavery but you are set free and we say – Rise up in the name of Jesus and be free; for whom the Son sets free is free indeed – in Jesus’ precious name”. Amen.

The third song was slower and reminded me of a lament – it was sorrowful.

“My church, My church what are you doing?  Why are you there in darkness? Why do you hide?   Why do you strive?  The Lord says – Rise and come up high.   Stop standing there – in the shadows.    Let your light shine.   The Lord has put you on a hill to shine for Him but you are dark and He wants light.  Let the candlestick come or the Lord will remove you, if you do not shine bright, if you do not shine bright.   The Lord says – Shine, Shine for Him, Shine for Him, Shine for Him for He has created you to Shine for Him, to Shine for Him.

Matthew 5:14 “you are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle and put under a bushel but on a candlestick and it gives light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The fourth and last song was a declaration to the enemy who is working unseen – It speaks of a time of exposure and cutting off the hidden influence and strategies of the enemy.

“The Lord says you can hide no longer.  He is calling you out of the shadows.  You have to come forth, you have to come forth for the Lord has His eye on you and the Lord says – He is calling you out now.  He is calling you to be exposed, for the Lord says  -you can no longer hide in the darkness, for He is sending forth His sword against you and He is cutting off your head.  He is cutting off your head, He is cutting off your head and you’ll no longer be able to do the things you have done for the Lord is going to cut off your head and He is sending out His Word,  He is sending out his Word, He is sending forth His Word and He’s cutting off your head.   The Lord says – your time is at an end, your time is at an end, your time is at an end.  You will lurk in the shadows no more, you will lurk in the shadows no more, you will lurk in the shadows no more for the Lord has put His hand around you and He is calling you out, He is calling you out, He is calling you out into the light and He is cutting off your head, He is cutting off your head.”

Ezekiel 6;3 Behold I even I will bring a sword against you and I will destroy your high places.

Time for Great & Mighty Things

Those who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits – Daniel 11:32

A tongue & interpretation given at our fellowship on Sunday 20th October 2019.    The Lord said it is a time to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.   Those who know their God will do great and mighty things.     A great shaking is taking place and we must know our God.    We must know the Father, Jesus the Son & the Holy Spirit.  Not just about them but to know them.   We must know God’s character so that we are not deceived by the spirit of deception which is at work in this age.   God is a good, good God.  He is a God of love, grace & mercy.   We must know His Son Jesus – the authority which is His and His righteous judgment.    There is a time for His righteous judgement.    We are to know the power of the Holy Spirit working in and through us and to discern between good and evil, truth & lies.    We are to come to the table of the Lord for He is our daily bread and our provision.   God asks us a question – who do you serve?  who do you serve?

God is Good – His invitation

“Oh taste and see that the Lord is Good;  Blessed is the man that trusts in Him”  Psalm 34:8 

God’s invitation is open to all to come and taste and see that He is good.    He invites us to come to His banqueting table just as we are and to feast.    The Lord says that it is free to come and to partake of all His goodness.   Jesus has paid the price for us.     Other things in this life will not satisfy us but His love, grace, mercy and goodness are more than enough to satisfy our very souls.     His banner over us is love. 

The truth is that God is good.   Jesus is good.   The Holy Spirit is good.    All good things come from God above and He is good.     We declare that truth today.    Anything which teaches or tells us otherwise is a lie.   The gifts of the Holy Spirit are good.    The fruit of the Holy Spirit is good.    Anything which is not good is not of God.     The fruit which is not good is not of Him.    

I believe that the Lord is saying in this season, Come and see that I am good.   I am a good, good, God.   I give good gifts to my children.   Come and ask of me so that I might pour My gifts into you for the benefit of others.    My Spirit living and breathing through you by the power of My resurrected son, Jesus – the very breath of God.   I bring life and truth.    I am speaking in the season to bring the dry bones to life.   As the prophet spoke to the dry bones so I am sending out My Word amongst My children to proclaim that this is the day of the Lord.  Rejoice and be glad in it.  Speak to the dry places and tell them to become fruitful in the name of the Lord – that there may be rivers of living water that will flow in the deserts.   Speak to the barren places and command them to bring forth fruit.     Whatever fruit has already withered on the vine then let it die,  but I am bringing a refreshing wind says the Lord which will revive those of My children who need refreshing.    Come and taste and see that the Lord is good.   If you will seek Him with all your heart then He will not disappoint you.   Come says the Lord.  Come.   The invitation is there.      If you choose to ignore it then you will not reap the benefits of My presence or My goodness says the Lord.    Oh taste and see that the Lord is Good.   Trust in Him and be blessed as you come in and as you go out.

Isaiah 55 New King James Version (NKJV)

An Invitation to Abundant Life

55 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
Why do you [a]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.
Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David.
Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people,
A leader and commander for the people.
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”

Seek the Lord while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the [b]wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me [c]void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

12 “For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

 

Amen.

God’s Perfect Plan

God reminded me today that even though at times my life seems chaotic and overwhelming to me when I am trying to balance work, family, home and many other things which distract me, the truth is that He is always right there with me and I am made right with Him through Jesus.   I am living out His perfect plan for my life because He is in it.     I don’t have to earn it or work at it – I just have to accept the greatest gift which Jesus has given to me – the gift of relationship with God.

I wrote down the following words which came to me as I spent some time with God today:

“My children,  From the very foundation of the world I had a plan and My plan has not altered.    It is a plan set in the heavenly realm and My son Jesus achieved and accomplished in perfect obedience and perfect sacrifice and in perfect timing that plan.   Every person on earth who has ever lived and was created with life has a place in My perfect plan.    There is no-one who has ever lived who is not able to partake.  None has been left out.   I long that all would come into My perfect plan for their lives.   My plan is simple.  It consists of relationship between Father, Son, Holy Spirit and you in perfect harmony of relationship.  There is nothing which can stop you being part of My plan.   All that is necessary is humble acceptance of My son’s sacrifice and offering of Himself for you.  He has obtained by His death and resurrection the keys of death and hell so that the door is open to walk into the perfect plan for your life.   No other plan will bring you the desires of your heart for no other plan can bring you into perfect harmony with Me.  It is simple and it is true.  There is only one plan which is perfect and so why accept anything less for yourselves.”

The Inspection Gate

The Miphkad Gate or The inspection Gate

The bible teach us that Jesus is coming back and we should live today with that in mind.     Whatever we are doing -let us do it with an eye to the future and make it count.

 

This gate reminds me of the judgement seat of Christ.  The bible teaches us that one day we, as Christians, will give an account of ourselves to Christ. We will appear before His throne and Christ will judge our works.   Our sins are paid for by His blood but we will give an account for our works or in other words how have we have lived out our lives for him.

Paul teaches on this in 2 Corinthians Ch 5 – v 9  “Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad”.

What is Christ looking for?  I believe it is His character and how it has manifested in our lives through the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 7 – v 17 – “Every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit”.

This takes us right back to the Sheep Gate where we started our journey around the gates – We have to be rooted in Christ to bear good fruit.

John 15 talks of the true vine and Jesus says:

“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, and you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, bears much fruit, for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, so you will be My disciples.”

The fruit of the Holy Spirit working in our lives is:  Galatians 5: 22 – ” love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, – Against such there is no law: And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires”.

If we are rooted in Him then the good fruit will be produced naturally by the Holy Spirit working in our lives and what we do will be good and pleasing to Jesus.

 

The Fountain & Water Gates

The Fountain Gate –   Nehemiah repaired the Fountain Gate.   This gate reminds me of Jesus – who is the fountain of living water- and also the daily power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives.    There is a living well of spiritual water for us to draw from daily.    It is an inexhaustible supply that will never run dry.      Jesus said we never need to thirst again when we come to Him because He is the living water.   He can satisfy our thirst in all areas and bring refreshing to us.    When we are tired, weary or discouraged then we can come to the Fountain Gate and be refreshed.    We can drink deeply of Jesus and be restored.      If we forsake the living water then we will be dry and empty with nothing to give.  Our source of spiritual life is Jesus.

The Water Gate –    This gate speaks to me of the power of the word of God which is at work in our lives.    The bible teaches us that we are washed by the word of God.      The word of God is powerful and true – a test of our thoughts and intentions.   When we read, meditate and act on the Word of God then we see the fruit if its out-working in our lives and it keeps us on the right path.

The Water Gate was the only gate which didn’t need repair.    The word of God endures for ever.     God’s word doesn’t need to be improved,  added to or altered – it is complete just as it is.   It is the best manual for a successful and fulfilling life.

The Valley Gate

Nehemiah re-built The Valley Gate.       This is a difficult gate and one that we don’t generally want to go through- the valley experiences which no-one likes.    We would all (myself included) much rather stay on the mountain top and enjoy those experiences with God but I don’t believe that we can stay there forever if we are to grow, mature and move on.

The valley gate can be a necessary part of following our path to achieve what God is preparing us for.   It develops our faith and trust in God and we learn from the experience that God is faithful.    I believe that Jesus had to go through the valley gate when he went from Mt Olives through the Kidron Gate into Garden of Gethsemane and then to the Cross.   He was in agony in the garden but He yielded to God’s will to be done.   Generally, in life we will all go through valley experiences but the encouragement is that we are never alone at those times and we can get through them.   Jesus promised that He will never leave us or forsake us. He will lead us through the valley – even the valley of death.   The words of Psalm 23 encourages that God is with us and will not forsake us and will comfort us in time of difficulty and pain. 

If you are in a valley situation right now – keep going, don’t give up and ask for God’s help.  Sometimes the valley situations teach us far more than the mountain top experiences and our faith in God grows. God will show you the way through to the other side.  Humility and the valley gate in my experience can sometimes go together hand in hand.   I have had to humble myself under God’s mighty hand before I realise that I can’t handle situations on my own or with my own wisdom or little understanding.    If I submit and surrender to God and acknowledge my dependence on Him then I have felt His peace even in the most difficult of situations.
