It’s time for a praise party! Rise up in praise people of God #24/7 praise

Morning everyone 😁 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord hallelujah! hallelujah! hallelujah! It’s time to rise up in praise to our God. Psalm 150 what incredible words of praise. Let all things praise God.

We are at a time I believe when giving praise to our God is key to seeing His kingdom come and overcoming the darkness and evil which is seeking to rise up in these times in opposition to God. There is power in praise. Power to see victory and freedom in our lives. Power to overcome.

Satan hates our praises of God and will do what he can to stop us praising our mighty, wonderful and awesome God. He wants to silence God’s people and rob our praises. He wants to silence us so much. We under estimate how much he wants to rob our praises. He wants to discourage us. He wants to distract us from praising. He wants to try and quash any revival amongst Gods people.

We see around us disease, civil unrest, injustice, violence and lots more evil at work at this time but God is on the throne. Light is more powerful than darkness. Good is more powerful than evil. Truth is more powerful than lies. Hope is more powerful than despair. Death is defeated in Christ Jesus. Satan is defeated.

I refuse to be silenced at this time. I will speak, shout out, sing, write and declare my praises to God and Jesus. I am waking up with praises running around my head at the moment so can’t ignore this prompting from God’s Holy Spirit.

My actions, what I do, my very existence and my life will be my praise to Him. My very breath every day is testimony and praise to Him and the power and grace He works in my life. So it is in yours too!

Take hold of that. Who you are, your very life in Christ, your faith and service of Him is a powerful testimony of Gods amazing work of grace and redemption. We may fall and mess up but His grace is more than sufficient for us. His mercies are new every morning. His forgiveness is overwhelming.

Our Father in heaven and our saviour Jesus are worthy of all praise, honour and glory. All glory and honour belong to them. Whatever is happening at the moment, whatever season we are in, let us praise. In the good times and in the bad. He is worthy. Not because of what He does or has done or will do but simply because of who He is.

At the moment many of us cannot meet together as Gods people for corporate praise. Let’s get creative. Let’s share ideas and our praises. Let there be 24/7 praise to our God.

Can I encourage you to praise. To keep praising or to start again if you have stopped. Let’s get the praises to our God and King flooding the airwaves and the spiritual realm with truth, hope, life and light.

Praise Him in your homes, in your car, on your phones. Share praises with your social network, organising online praise parties or meeting in smaller numbers outside to praise. There is great praise music and resources out there on line to help. There are bible readings on line. Play or read aloud the word of God.

Let’s get praising Hallelujah 🙏🙏🙏 please share and encourage everyone you know to praise our awesome God. Let’s get a praise party going 24/7 down here on earth just as it is in heaven to Him who sits on the throne.

Revelation 4 v 8 “ and they do not rest day or night saying “ holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come.

V11 you are worthy, O Lord to receive glory, and honour and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created”

24/7 praises Amen 🙏

Created for a life with God

Morning all – what another beautiful day it has been.

Creation – In the beginning God spoke.   There is always as starting point for creativity.  Your Father in Heaven is a Creator but satan is a counterfeit.

A counterfeit is a copy of the original & the unique creation.  It is merely a copy.  It looks appealing.  It looks as though it will do the job, but it can never bring that true sense of satisfaction because it will never be as good as the original.

The original has a purpose unique to it.   You are unique.  You are a created being – You were made to give glory to your Father in Heaven.  You are truly unique.   There has and never will be a good enough copy of you.   You are the original – God looked at you and said – It is GOOD.   If God can say that about you – then  please don’t say anything else about the beautiful human being that He has created you to be.

Stop living a counterfeit fake life, full of sin & deceit and start living the life which God created you to live.   A life of freedom, holiness, joy, love – A life of grace, mercy & kindness.  It is possible to throw off that old life & embrace a new life in Jesus Christ.  He was the son who knew no sin – human yet divine.   He is unique and there is none like Him.  There is only one Jesus Christ the true son of God.   Any other Jesus is just a counterfeit & a fake.

Don’t be fooled.  There is no-one else who can make a way back to Father God in Heaven – Only the true son of God – Jesus Christ.   He alone is the one true God.  He alone is the one true path of righteousness & salvation.  Believe in Him.  The true King of Kings & Lord of Lords & do not be deceived by the counterfeits.   They lead to death but Jesus leads to life and life in all its fullness.

God created you for a purpose.  He loves you and cherishes you and longs to be reunited to you.

For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son so that whoever believes in Him will be saved.

John 3 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

May your faith be genuine.  My your love be true and may your heart not deceive you.

Believe in Jesus and be saved.   Believe & be saved.

Alleluia to the Lamb of God – forever & ever.  For He was slain but now He lives.

Amen, Amen & Amen.

The good news of JESUS to run swiftly throughout the nations

2 Thessalonians 3 v 1 “Finally, brethren pray for us that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified just as it is with you”.

These are the words that the Lord has spoken to my heart today.    This is the day for the release of an acceleration of the powerful message of the good news of Jesus Christ.  That it will run swiftly now as the apostle Paul said through our cities, our communities and through our families.

The word of God to run swiftly as horses through the nation – Let it run swiftly and be glorified.

Let it be shouted from the rooftops – There is Good News.  There is hope – His name is JESUS.

He died for your sins.  He rose again & conquered death so that you may live with Him and be with Him in his kingdom.   He is the only saviour who can restore you to relationship with your loving Father in Heaven.

Believe in Him.  Turn from your wicked ways.  Believe in Him and in the power of His death & resurrection and be saved.   Today is the day of salvation.  Today is the day to believe.  Cast away all doubt & fear and put your faith in Him.

He will never let you down.  Turn from darkness to the light.  Turn from death to live in Him.  May you hear His word today.

Let the message of salvation run swiftly through the whole earth.  Amen.

2 Thessalonians 3 v 1 “Finally, brethren pray for us that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified just as it is with you”.

Let us pray that that the word of God and the message of salvation in Jesus Christ will run swiftly through the nations of the earth today.  That we will be bold to speak it out.  That we will be bearers of that message and will speak it and testify of it. 

There is hope and His name is Jesus Christ.   He alone is the hope for our nations.  That people’s hearts will be softened to receive the message of salvation, that their minds will be set free to hear His word & that the Holy Spirit will bring conviction of sins to men’s hearts and lead them to the truth that is Jesus Christ.

The Risen Son Jesus -In service of the King

The Lord spoke this word to my spirit this morning.   It is a long word so please read & pray and I hope that it blesses, encourages and challenges you as it does me:

“Thus says the Son – For I came into the world and you did not recognise me because you chose to be wilfully blind, but when I come again in all My glory with My heavenly army with me then all eyes will see and all will know that I am Jesus – He that was crucified and rose again.

None will be able to deny it.  Some may choose to rebel against Me and choose the wicked deceiver but the choice will be theirs to make.   There will be no excuses.  There will be no deniers on that day for all will see My glory & My power.

Trust in Me.   All you who have put your trust and faith in My death & resurrection for I will not disappoint you.  I will raise each one to life who has believed in Me.  They will be honoured and they will share in My glory for it pleases Me to share My glory and My life with those who love me.

I will give gifts to all those who have served Me with a true heart.   Not the hypocrites and not the fame seekers.   For I will test all men’s works.   Those works that remain after the fire will receive a reward but for everything burned up they will suffer loss.   For I am a righteous and true judge.  I am fair in all I do.   Justice goes forth from My throne for nothing is hidden from My eyes.

All will be laid bare before My sight & before the sight of everyone from the kings of the earth to the lowest – All will stand before My throne & receive from Me.  Some will pretend and make excuses for the things that they have done, but I will tell them to depart from Me because they are wicked, serving only themselves and not the one true King.

Repent My people of your selfish ambitions & serve Me with humility, kindness & love for as much as I gave for you out of My heart, then so much I ask from you to be poured out for Me.  I give you life in all its fullness so that you can give to others.   Each one of My followers has something to give.  No-one is empty handed in My kingdom for if you ask of Me then you will receive.

Ask of Me and I will open up the treasures of heaven to pour into your hands.  A good measure pressed down & overflowing.   Give as it is given to you and hold nothing back, especially in these days when you have the opportunity to do much good and show much love to those in need.

Bless you My children.   One day I will look into your eyes and you will look into mine and you will truly understand the sacrifice which I made for each one of you.  It was worth it and I saw what My Father had in mind from the foundation of the earth so I was pleased to offer Myself as a sacrifice for you because it is worth it to My father and it is worth it to Me.

All honour & glory belongs to the One who sits on the throne forever and ever, Amen.

 

 

Our God has risen up.. Victory is His

Last night (Good Friday 10th April) I had a dream in which I was in a large upper room in a church building with lots of people – some I knew and some I didn’t.   During the course of the meeting my friend and I (we were not next to each other as we usually would be when seated in church) at exactly the same time spoke out a powerful tongue in unison.

As we spoke it out the words were so powerful and strong – the declaration in them went forth like a loud cry & a roar and we marched forward as we said the tongue.      This was a completely new thing to us – my friend has the gift of tongues and I often have the gift of interpretation to her tongue and we will bring a word in church meetings but never at the same time.      I remember being overawed in the dream because this was a new thing and the power of the Holy Spirit was tangible.     The Lord was doing something new amongst us.

The interpretation of the tongue was:

“Our God is a man of war.   See He goes forth.   He has arisen!  A mighty man of war.  He rises against His enemies and they will be scattered.    He has sent forth His arrows & pierced the darkness.  He has defeated death.  He has conquered.   He has risen on our behalf and the glory is all His.  All the glory belongs to Him and to no other.  He is a man of war and He strides out on our behalf across the nations.  He has conquered and has won the victory over death & disease. He is the victor.  All honour & glory belong to Him and no other.  He is the one true God & all the praise & honour is His.  Let no-one try & take the honour for themselves.  Woe to them who will claim the victory for themselves.  God has arisen and His enemies are scattered.  The victory is His.  Amen.”

This morning I looked for these words in scripture and it says:

Exodus 15 -The Song of Moses

1Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord, saying,

“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his ridera he has thrown into the sea.
2The Lord is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3The Lord is a man of war;
the Lord is his name.

and

Psalm 68

1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

Our Great High Priest Jesus Christ

Yesterday God reminded me from readings in Hebrews that we have a great High Priest Jesus who is seated in heaven continually making intercession for us to God the Father.

Hebrews 10 “ But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God” Hebrews 4:14 “ seeing then we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathise with our weaknesses but was in all points tempted as we are yet without sin, let us come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.Hebrews 7:24- “ but He (Jesus) because He continues forever, he has an unchangeable priesthood, therefore He (Jesus) is also able to save to the uttermost (everyone) who comes to God through Him since He always lives to make intercession for them”.

Daniel prayed to God 3 times a day. I feel stirred at this time that God is seeking intercessors in this season to pray morning, noon and night with the mind of Christ that we have been given. To stand in the gap on behalf of our nations and pray as the Holy Spirit leads us. To join our prayers to Jesus’.

Today I read another word posted on Kingdom Prophecy which really encouraged me and confirmed this sense of what God is stirring in my heart. They also posted these bible verses:

“For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered,” Romans 8:26.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all The LORD’s people,” Ephesians 6:18.

“From the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard,” Daniel 10:1

I encourage you to draw near to God in worship and prayer at this time and pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.

There is so much going on & news that we can actually become quite distracted in this season from all that is happening and this could lead to confusion and exhaustion just trying to keep up. I sense God is saying take time in the secret place with Him first and foremost. Turn your eyes on Jesus and seek Him. Keep yourself rooted and grounded in Him and His word and guard your hearts and minds against deception.

Share from the well of living water and let’s encourage each other with our prayers and what we hear God saying at this time. Blessings to you in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Valley of Decision – Don’t leave it too late to choose Jesus

This is the fifth word that God has specifically spoken to me during this month and follows on from the last word about fixing our eyes on Jesus.

I heard the Lord say  -Multitudes, Multitudes in the valley of decision.  Choose you this day who you will serve.   Who will you bow the knee to and honour as your God?  Who will you serve?  Will you choose to serve the God of self or will you crucify the flesh and it’s wicked desires and submit yourself to the Holy One (Jesus).   Will you choose to pick up your cross and surrender your life to the Holy One.  Will you sacrifice your life & humble yourself under His Mighty Hand.

This is the time of decision.  This is the time to choose.   Choose you this day who you will serve.  As for me and my house we will choose to serve the Lord.   We will serve him wholeheartedly.  We will serve him joyfully.   Though the fig tree may wither and there be no fruit on the vine yet we will praise Him.  We will go out with joy & be led forth with peace and the mountains and hills will surrender before us.   We will be overcomers & mighty ones in the Kingdom of our King Jesus, for He will equip us with every good thing to accomplish His purposes & plans.

For His plans are to bless us & use us to be a blessing to many nations and that through us all the nations of the earth will rejoice.   They will see the light of goodness & grace manifested before them.   The children of light will rise up and prepare the way for the King.  Rise up my people and proclaim the King is coming.   Prepare you the way of the Lord for the King of the whole earth is coming.  He is coming.   The King of the whole world is coming to judge the world with righteousness & truth.  He is King of Kings & Lord of Lords.  He has trodden the wine press of God’s fury alone and He has purged & cleansed His own from all sin & unrighteousness.  He has purchased them & set them free.  He has raised them to new life in Him.

All hail the Lamb.  All hail the Lamb.   Choose you this day who you will serve.  Who will you serve.  The choice is yours.  Choose wisely before it is too late & the choice is taken from you.   Choose wisely & choose now before it is too late.  Amen

 

Fix your eyes on Jesus in this season – Follows His example – Endurance, Sacrifice & Humility

Today whilst praying, the Lord spoke this word to me for this season:   I heard the Lord say in my spirit:

I have sent forth a proclamation from My throne.   The angels take My proclamation throughout the earth.   They act on My command.  The trumpet is to their lips as they blow My Royal Standard over the nations.   They announce My will – This is My word which goes forth:

Arise & see the beauty of your King.  Arise & fix your gaze on Him.  Fix your eyes upon the Saviour of the world at this time.  For He has the words of everlasting life.  He is the bread of Life.

Everything you need is found in Him.  Do not take your gaze from Him in these days ahead.  Fix your eyes upon Jesus for He is the lover of your soul.   All of you who have sworn allegiance to My Son, have made Him King of your life – Submit yourself in obedience to Him.

Look at Him as an example of endurance; Look at Him as an example of sacrifice; Look at Him as an example of humility.   Be like Him.  In this day you need to be clothed with humility.  Do not puff yourselves up with pride & arrogance that you think you know best.  Submit yourselves to My Holy Word and be obedient to those in authority over you.

For I have raised up My people for such a day as this.  Be people of grace, mercy & Love.  Be an example of My Son.  Let Him live through each one of you.  This is your opportunity to shine as stars for the Kingdom.   This is your opportunity to show My goodness for I am a good, good, God.   I have mercy & I have love in abundance but the judgment day is set and woe to those who have despised the work of My Hand & have puffed themselves up arrogantly against the knowledge of the Most High God for they will be brought down & brought to shame.  For they are as dust & to dust they will return.

I, the Lord have spoken and say – Do not despise the day of the Lord or mock and scorn with the scoffers for there will be a place reserved for you in the fiery pit if you do so.  Take up the Cross and follow My son & leave your flesh behind & live for Him.  Follow Him for He has the words of eternal life.

Amen.

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 invitation- pass it on.

The words of Isaiah 55 remind us of God’s invitation to abundant life.  Jesus issues this invitation to all – regardless of race, gender, creed or colour – everyone is welcome.  Jesus calls people to come to Him – everyone who is weary, thirsty or hungry – only He can satisfy and give us true life in all its fullness and the promise of eternal life.    I attended Encounter at my friend’s church last night.   Their mission statement is simple -to help people find Jesus and follow Him.     An invitation to church or a special service can be one way to help someone you know discover Jesus as Saviour for themselves.    It is providing an opportunity for someone to meet and see Jesus – perhaps for the first ever time.    Christmas is just around the corner and we have the opportunity to invite people to a variety of events.   Jesus told a parable about people who were invited to a wedding feast but refused to come – they made lots of different excuses.  People will always have the choice whether to accept the invitation or not – that is up to them, but we should not give up or be discouraged from issuing the invite because it gets refused – Jesus isn’t.    He told the disciples to shake the dust from their feet and move on when their message was not welcomed at places.   Perhaps we need to shake off some past disappointments and defeatist mind sets and start sending out those invitations.  I know I do.    There will come a time when it will be too late to issue the invites but we can encourage others to “seek Him while He can be found”.  Isaiah 55 v 6.   Who can you invite today to find Jesus?
