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

The Cross of Jesus and Me

So here we are, Good Friday. A day when I can pause and reflect on Jesus’ death and what it means to me.

We all have an opportunity today to ask ourselves…What does the Cross mean to me?

The Cross is a personal experience.

I have to come to the Cross for myself.

I have to accept that Jesus died for me and understand why He chose to die.

I am so grateful that others have helped point me towards the Cross of Jesus.

I am so grateful that there were witnesses to His death and Resurrection who told the story in the gospels.

I am so grateful for the ones who through the years have faithfully told and shared the the Good News.

The ones who faithfully declared the truth that Jesus the Son of God came to this world and had to die so that I could live. Jesus became my sin offering before God and paid the price to set me free. He who had no sin took my sin on Himself.

The price of sin, the wages of sin, which is death had to be paid. I was born into sin. Jesus was the one who by His death ransomed me and set me free. He took my punishment on Himself. He chose to die that I might live.

There was no other way for God’s righteous judgement to be met. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He is the door through which we come to God.

I understood this truth and came to the Cross. I knelt before it and said sorry to God for my sins and accepted Jesus as My Saviour and Lord. I have been born again into a new life in Jesus and have restored relationship with God in heaven and received the promise of His Holy Spirit who lives in me.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me. Thank you Jesus that you were raised from the dead by God’s mighty hand. Thank you Jesus for sending us your Holy Spirit. Thank you Jesus that you love me with an everlasting love. That you are always with me and never leave me.

I pray that you also encounter Jesus at the Cross today.

“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation — if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant. For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
Colossians 1:21-23,2:9-15

God will not be mocked

I heard these words in my spirit so clearly this morning and the Lord reminded me of the word I received last year about watching the nations to see who they would align themselves with. I have copied that word below again for prayer consideration. At the time the Lord reminded me that the decisions made by nations would have eternal consequences and I believe the warning to the nations is that God will not be mocked. God knows the truth and He will not be mocked by charades and pretence. God requires justice and righteousness in the nations. He will call the nations to account for their deeds.

“I sense that God is encouraging us to watch & pray and see which nations are aligning themselves with each other in the times ahead.

Nations which at one time were bitter enemies may start to align themselves – taking sides against other nations. 

Nations which at one time would have relied on support from another nation will instead be betrayed when that nation unexpectedly sides against them. 

I felt God say that this is a time when nations need to be careful who they align themselves with in the days ahead and what they do. Those decisions will have eternal consequences.

Nations are in danger of allowing pride to deceive them into making the wrong alliances.

Obadiah is one of the shortest books in the Old Testament but it warns about the consequences of such actions for the nation of Edom. In verse 3 we read about the nation of Edom “the pride of your heart has deceived you”.

Edom picked the wrong side to support. They chose to align themselves with an enemy against Israel & the people of God who were their brothers. 

Edom was part of the winning side or so it seemed at the time. Israel was defeated. Edom celebrated the victory and rejoiced over Israel’s destruction & captivity.

However, God was against their behavior – v 10 – For violence against your brother Jacob, shame shall cover you” v11 – in the day that you stood on the other side”

Edom aligned themselves wrongly.

The consequences of that decision & their subsequent actions were that they were going to be shamed & brought low. God would take vengeance on their actions and against those who harmed His people. God was going to restore His people.

In verse 15 it says “For the day of the Lord upon all nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you – your reprisal shall return upon your own head“.

How the nations act & what they do – God will measure it back to them.

There is a day of divine justice coming to all the nations of the earth. 

Jesus said that in the last days “Nations will rise against Nations” – Matthew 24:7

Let us watch & pray over the nations as the Lord leads us in these days.”

Watch the Nations – whose side will they take?

A Season of Alignment

Morning, I hope you are well. I believe that God is calling us into a season of alignment with Him. God wants us to be aligned with His plans, His purposes, His teachings, His leading and His Spirit. I am reminded of a similar word to this in October 2020 on a course correction which I will try and link to this post or will re-post. (Hopefully worked below) 🙂

God is calling us to align ourselves ready for the days ahead. We are being encouraged to check our alignment. Where are our hearts, thoughts, plans, actions aligned.

Choosing who and what we are aligned with is going to be key for the season and days ahead. Divine alignment will lead to Divine Appointments and Divine Experiences.

Let us align ourselves with all that is true, all that is Godly, all that is righteous and all that is just. Let us not align ourselves with the things of the flesh, the world, false doctrine, false teachings or false prophecy. God is warning us not to yoke ourselves to the ungodly things of this world. Let us take on the yoke of Christ and then we will be aligned correctly.

Align ourselves with the word of God, the living word and saviour of the world, Jesus. Let us walk where He walks, talk as He talks. Aligned in every aspect of our lives. Let there be nothing that affects our alignment or which causes us to stumble.

Let us align ourselves with the divine power of God. Let the God of the whole world who is worthy of all praise, honour and glory be the centre of our very being. The power of God in dwelling us as our divine compass aligning us with the very mind of Christ. Let us keep in true alignment with God at this time and in the coming days whatever they may bring to us.

May you be blessed in Jesus x I am reminded of the following words of the Apostle Paul in Hebrews 12:5-17

And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.”

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.

Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.

A course correction – the right direction

His Righteousness alone


Colossians 2 v 6 “As you have received Christ Jesus, so walk in Him”

My friend Caroline sent me these encouraging words to share with you today. She said;

This verse of scripture stood out to me the other day, as I began meditating on it and studying it some thoughts began to crystallise.


I thought back to when I first believed on Jesus, not as a child, but later when I rededicated my life to God, the realisation that I couldn’t ‘do it’ without Him, that I desperately wanted and needed Him, that I had nothing to bring to the table, but that He was calling me anyway. He loved me and wanted me, the joy and faith of experiencing His love and acceptance. I remembered how I just accepted Him and loved Him for accepting me.


I also realised how easy it is to slip into legalism, and how this ploy of the enemy robs our joy. It may begin rather subtly as we desire to please God and ‘live right’ but instead of relying on Jesus, begin substituting this by our own effort, and trying to law keep.


I would gently like to remind us, that Christ is our righteousness and He alone by the power of His spirit can enable us to live out this righteousness that has been given as a gift.


Why do we find it so difficult to accept this truth? I would like to share a few thoughts, maybe it’s just my failing? Maybe I am only just ‘seeing’ this truth?


Maybe we are ignorant of the matchless righteousness of God and the standard of holiness He demands. We think that by keeping certain standards and duties, we are doing OK, when actually if we sin in one small thing, under the law we are condemned, this shouldn’t dishearten us, it brings us to a knowledge of the truth that we are dead to the law ( we cannot keep it, and are therefore condemned to death by it), Praise God that we can be married to another! Christ Jesus – Romans 7v4.


We do not see the glory of His righteousness, or the fullness of it, or the value of it to obtain the favour of God. It is the ONLY righteousness of which God is pleased. Help us never to try to establish a righteousness of our own, this is a proud ignorance and ignorant pride.


We can also tell if we have a legal soul, if we are wearied in the way. “He is wearied in his ways, but did not say it is hopeless, but found new life for his strength.” Just redoubling our efforts is not the way forward, but a total trust and reliance on God.


God wants His glory to be seen in the magnitude of His free mercy and grace, legal obedience leaves us deluded and disappointed thinking we can cover ourselves with the tatters of a robe of prayers and duties that we have performed for many years, and that this may cover us.


As long as we are under the command of the law, we remain under the curse of the law, if we pay any attention to the law as a covenant we are a debtor to the whole law. If we are alive in any form to the law, and it can be so subtle, we are not receiving Christ’s righteousness, but leaning on our works of righteousness.


If we would live unto God we must strive to enter the rest of Christ’s righteousness, in this way mercy and grace take all the credit, and Christ will have all the honour, and we will have the peace of God and be enabled to walk in His righteousness, by leaning totally upon Him.


The word is clear, we are the righteousness of God in Christ, not in ourselves, may we never be deceived by the enemy. I pray a greater revelation of these truths for myself and brothers and sisters. There is NO condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus!! AMEN.


Caroline
