The day of reckoning

Mercy….the Lord our God is truly a God of Mercy and Justice. The Lord has been speaking to me recently about the day that everyone will have to appear before His throne.

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15

For all God’s children, all of His children, whether good or evil, there is a day of reckoning. Each will appear before His throne, whether great or small, famous or of no account. God is just and He grants mercy, favour and grace to those He chooses as He alone can judge correctly as He sees the intents of a man’s heart.

One day all will be laid bare for all to see. There are those who have been the great deceivers, deceived the whole world by their displays of pretence of goodness, who have loved the praises of men but not to God. Their works will be burnt up like dross. The true heroes of faith will be made known. Those who have been faithful to God. He will reward them according to the thoughts and intents of their hearts.

God will open His books on that day of reckoning. All heaven and earth will know the truth. The truth will be revealed for all to see. That is why the Lord urges His people not to judge each other without cause because they do not know the truth unless the Spirit of truth has revealed it to them. There are not many who can judge correctly with Godly wisdom and knowledge but Solomon was one of those that God gave such wisdom.

Make no mistake, each person from all time from the greatest to the least will appear before the throne of glory to give account of themselves. The reasons for their actions and the reason for their hope. God will be merciful to those He will be merciful to and show grace beyond the understanding of man because He sees the heart. His grace and mercy is the book of life. If your name is written in the book of life then grace and mercy triumphs over judgement.

James 2:13 judgement is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgement.

If you do not have confidence today that your name is written in the lamb’s book of life and that you will receive God’s mercy on that day of reckoning then you have an opportunity to say sorry for your sins, accept God’s forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ His son as your saviour. By repentance and saying sorry and by faith in Jesus you will be saved and your name written in the book of life. You will experience the grace of God. This is the start of your new life as a believer in Christ. Find a local church or a believer who can help disciple and teach you how to be a follower of Jesus and live out your new life.

The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. Revelation 21:23- 27

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 🔥

Look up and come up..

My friend Heather, sent our fellowship group these encouraging words and I wanted to share them with you today. I hope you are blessed x

Morning all, as I was awake in the night I believe the Lord said to me “LOOK UP” and then “COME UP”.

Where I thought? Psalm 121 says “ I look to the hills it’s where my help comes from. The Lord maker of heaven and earth”.


As I looked up I saw the eagles up there soaring way above the storm.


Isaiah 41 verse 30 says “those who Hope in the Lord will soar on eagles wings. They will run and not get weary, they will walk and not faint”. I encourage you to read all of Isaiah 40.


Did you know the eagle puts her chicks in a hole in the rocks and then she faces in and spreads her wings across the hole to cover them and stays there till the storm has passed.

Psalm 91 says “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, in the shadow of The Almighty will say He is my refuge, my God in whom I trust. Verse 4 says “He will cover us with His wings”. I encourage you to read the rest of psalm 91.

We have meditated on Psalm 46 recently which says “God is our refuge and strength an ever present help in time of need”.


These scriptures tell us that God is in charge. Let us look up, stay strong and know we are under His wings. God bless xx

God our refuge

The Lord drew me to Psalm 46 yesterday and so we read it aloud last night in our fellowship group over WhatsApp. We prayed through the words to declare and affirm our faith in God and call upon Him in our times of trouble because He truly is our ever present help. He does not abandon us at these times but is right there with us in the middle of times of pain, sorrow, suffering and grief.

I hope you also take comfort and strength from these words today:

God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.

The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has made desolations in the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Psalm 46:1-11

Emmanuel, God with us. He is our ever present help. Call on Him today.

Blessings to you this day. 🙏

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
