A STRONG WORD TO LEADERS AND UPCOMING LEADERS

" IT'S EVE !! "
"The power of God will take you out of your own plans and put you into the plan of God." - Smith Wigglesworth
The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate (it is her fault, she became the stumbling block for me to disobey You!). " - Gen 3:12
"If you want to be My disciple, you must hate everyone else by comparison (You must love Me to such a degree in yielding yourself to Me, that the natural love you would have for others (and even for yourself), would seem to be as hatred, when compared to your love for Me, this includes those who are closest to you and most precious to you in the natural realm of this world (I must be more to you than) your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters - yes, even as your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be My disciple." - Luke 14:26
There will be no one behind whom we will be able to hide ourselves one day, if we have chosen to withdra…

The Process of Change is a Messy Business!

A surgeon's operating table may be sterile, but it is certainly never clean! At best it is "messy"! A place where he performs open surgery to save and rescue his patients. 

A potter's wheel is never clean either, it is covered in clay and so is the potter's hands in pressing against the item he is fashioning.

When it comes to our lives - being changed and  formed, corrected and even rescued, is also never a pretty sight either.

We sometimes find ourselves on God's operating table from time to time also, where He performs the much needed changes in us that will cause us to grow into greater dimensions of His Glory.

The tools - circumstances, people and conditions He uses are many times "messy" and cause us to look and feel "messy" also. The end result in allowing Him to complete His surgery in us however, always produces something beautiful at the end.

If things seem a little messy in your life rig…

A short thought -
LOOKING BEYOND THE OBVIOUS 

Sometimes God uses ways to free us from the present and to direct us into the next season of our lives that are the least preferable to us.

I am sure that Joseph did not enjoy waking up in the pit, having been rejected and cast out by his own brothers. The experience certainly must have hurt, and he would have preferred to have left in a much more dignified and meaningful way.

Yet if it had not been for the pit, he would have never seen Egypt.

Many times we tend to question our present experiences, and it may be that they are hurtful and cause us to wonder why they are happening and where God is in terms of rescuing and protecting us, without recognizing His very hand in the things we wish to run from! All the while guiding and leading us on to the new seasons He has prepared for us to know and to experience.

Always remember that circumstances are temporal and many times used as temporary instruments guiding our eternal future in playing ou…

AS TOUCHING HIS PRESENCE!
Try reading the Book of John in this way ...
John waited close to 80 years after Jesus had ascended to Heaven before he wrote the Book of John. One might wonder why? Why would he not write it as soon as Jesus left? In that way, one would assume that he would have more clarity to recall what Jesus had said and done. But here's the thing - John wrote from a life of having lived in experience of that which Jesus taught! He wrote about what he had "handled with his own hands, seen with his own eyes, and heard with the ears of his heart." John was not going to tell about things he had learned second hand. But about things which had been born in him, and had come Alive in him! He was going to share from the depths of having walked with Christ in the Spirit, and having become the living embodiment of His Life - Every Word and teaching having found root in his own heart, and having sprung up to grow into the full harvest of revelation, by becoming the …

Walking in the Light - Entering into New Realms of Glory.

Once again, Jesus spoke to the people and said, "I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of Life.” John 8:12
“And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the Glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its Light.” – Rev 21:23
Light. One of the most important, and most significant words used in the dispensation of Holy Spirit.
Without light we have darkness. Without Spiritual Light, we have spiritual darkness. The whole New Testament revolves around this one word and what is captured in it by its very definition – Light! Jesus came to be the Light. We have heard it said and preached, but do we come close to capturing what it truly means?
For most, the phrase speaks of salvation, of being “blind but now I see”, very few, however, see or understand that Jesus had within Him the very Radiance of the Light of the Father’s Life! He was a vessel, fully filled…

The Sweet Fragrance of Fruit
A number of years ago the Lord drew me out of the ministry that He had called me into. I had been functioning in this ministry for the better part of twenty-five years and it had developed into a very unique, very dynamic and very Powerful ministry in the Holy Spirit, that resulted in the lives of thousands in South Africa and also in South America to be touched and forever changed. The ministry was earmarked by the tangible and overwhelming Presence of the Lord, in Living manifestation in our midst, the baptism of Fire, supernatural healing, miracles and deliverance, and a strong Word ministry as the Spirit would speak the Word in living utterance.




It took the better part of twenty years for the Lord to develop our ministry to the point where His Presence was so real that it could many times be seen with the naked eye in the form of a cloud or a mist that would cover the entire place where we were gathered. It also took many, many long hours, days, nights,…

The Inner-Vision of the Spirit

In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.” – John 1:9
2 Corinthians 5:7 certainly is one of the most often quoted and loved portions of Scriptures by believers around the world.
It reads – “ For we walk by faith and not by sight”
One of the things most however do not know or immediately recognize, is the fact that what the Holy Spirit is saying through Paul, is not what most people assume it to be. Most reading this understand from the text that it is implied that, as opposed to being able to see in the natural, faith is blind, and walks by trusting itself to an unknown future in the hope of the goodness of a known God.
Have you heard the phrase – “Never be scared to commit an unknown future into the hands of a known God”?
Although this may have a noble and pleasing sound to the ear and a soothing effect upon the soul, and although well intended, and possibly applicable in some insistences of our lives, it is however also as wrong, a…
