Ploughing a straight furrow

 Luke 10:62

Jesus said to him, 'Anyone who starts to plough and then keeps looking back is of no use to the Kingdom of God'. 


Keep looking forward as you journey through your life with God.

Keep your focus ahead of you, toward Jesus whom you are following 

A divided heart is of no use to the Kingdom of God 

Make the choice to follow Him with everything you have.    

He walked with man in the Garden of Eden in the cool of the day.

He walks with you now in all seasons 

For some of you, it's cold and harsh, your circumstances like a winter day  

For others, the heat is stifling, and life is closing in all around you like a storm about to hit

Can you smell it?

Do you sense what God is about to do for you?

Regardless of what season you are in

God is about to bring a change, which, you could not know or foresee.

He gave the order long ago, but now is the appointed time for change, as the last season had to do its work within you.  

He shall bring about a monumental shift in your circumstances 

The winter will soon end and the storm will dissipate before your eyes

Do not be dismayed for He has ordained change 

He shall bring order into chaos and stability into what seems random.

Amen

Yes! The Lord sees your troubles

Isaiah 40 26 - 31

26 Look up into the heavens.
Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army, one after another,
calling each by its name.
Because of his great power and incomparable strength,
not a single one is missing.

27 O, Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?
O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?

28 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.

30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.

31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.


Whomever you are. Whatever you have done.  

God cares for your troubles 

He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things.

Nothing has been made by mistake or left out 

All things are complete,  Not one hair of your head is missing. 

He completed the stars in their vast array and gave each one a name.

Everything He created has significance.

I tell you, you who feel like an empty vessel.

I tell you,  your cup is full to overflowing

Look deep within for you are the embodiment of God's Holy Spirit.

He lives within you

Do you need help understanding?

Have you yet to be told?

Surely His Word is his bond.

' I shall never leave you, nor forsake you...' says the Lord.

Be amazed at the depths of His outpouring!

Surely His very life's blood was poured out and that whilst we were sinners.

How can anyone understand the depths of His eternal love?

Yet He chose both you and I whilst we were still sinners.

Come to Him all who labour and are burdened by many troubles.

Surely He Has carried our weighty burdens.

And made an oasis in the desert and wilderness. 

The dry barren land shall become fertile once more.

For I have seen fit to supply all your needs.
 
I am the great and almighty God none is equal to me.

Who can compare to the Creator of all, both seen and unseen?

Did the behemoth create the stars?

Or Did the great leviathan cause the planets to journey along their paths

No!

For as great as these creatures are, they are made by the awesome power of the Creator   

I the Lord shall renew the strength of the weary and lift up the downcast and down-trodden,
for I am both Creator and sustainer of all things.

I shall put a spring in the step of the lame and cause the blind to see and the deaf to hear.

I shall make the dry barren land fertile again and cause rivers to flow.

I shall turn the world around.

The jungle shall become like the desert and the desert like the jungle.

Those who have become rich by corruption shall be exposed.

Worship the Almighty God and turn to Him alone for he is worthy to be praised and honoured 

Amen.

The Lord's goodness

I the Lord delight in doing good to my children 

Even my wrath is poured out for your benefit 

I am creator

I am sustainer 

It is my desire to create in you my likeness 

For you were created in my image 

And designed to do my will 

You are destined for greatness 

For I provide for all your needs

Look at the sparrow. 

It builds its nest out of my supply and feeds its young in season 

Do I only offer an abundance in some seasons?

No. 

I supply in all seasons   

For I am more than able

Seasons come and seasons go but my Word stands for all time

You are my most treasured possession 

I love you beyond measure 

you can not understand the depths of my love for you 

it's height 

it's length 

it's width  

Tell me who can fathom the depths to which I go to prove my love for you.

Surely I shall display my love for you in ways you can not fathom

My creative power is plain for all to see surely my name is embedded within creation itself 

Look to the heavens and see my glory 

Amen

Surely He will meet all your needs


27 “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 28 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?



A promise fulfilled

 



He is the Rainbow !

Wednesday 1 May 2024

And I saw....

 





And behold I saw ten thousand upon ten thousand legions of angels riding in the clouds.

All were dressed for war. And Micheal and his host, fought with the dragon and his host, and cast them out of heaven.

Jesus won the final victory over the dragon, and bought back with his own blood, the keys to death and hades. 

There is power wonder working power in the blood of the lamb, slain before the foundation of the earth 

If you havent chosen a side yet, I tell you. Your already batting for the wrong team. 

Choose a side today for tomorrow may never arrive 

I tell you.

Now is the day of salvation 

There is a chasm between you and God which can only be bridged by faith in the sacrifice of Christ 

He is the bridge across the valley of death to eternal life.

Choose Now 

Choose Well

Choose Right

Amen

A Man crippled since birth


 

A Lame Man Healed

Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to [a]ask alms from those who entered the temple; who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God. 10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

Be amazed at my power and authority over all things 

Both invisible and visible 

For I am the Creator and Sustainer of all things 

I have granted my children the authority to use the power of my name 

For my name is above every other name.

Whenever you use my name power shall flow 

As from the hem of my garment 

Faith shall move mountains

I have given the power 

I have granted my children the right to use my name 

Look for every opportunity and do not look away or delay till tomorrow 

For power is given in the moment called now 

Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never arrive

Declare my name today this very moment

I provide the day 

I provide the means 

I provide the power 

I provide the faith 

I provide the opportunity 

So take advantage of everything I have provided 

Do not not be so wrapped up in things that have little value 

But store up your treasure in heaven 

The blind man given sight 

The lame give mobility 

The deaf given hearing

The pauper fed and clothed 

The dirty made clean 

Do these things and build up heavenly treasure 

I am not lacking in my provisions to you 

For I am the God of Abundance and Blessing 

Be amazed at the outpouring from my hand this very hour 

I am within arms reach 

Lift up your hands to take hold of mine 

And I shall guide you into your best outcome  

These days shall be amazing for those that know me 

For I shall be in their midst guiding, blessing, providing, healing and saving.

Amen

He protects his loyal ones

 ‭Psalms 31:23-24 NLT‬[23] Love the Lord, all you godly ones! For the Lord protects those who are loyal to him, but he harshly punishes the arrogant. [24] So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.31.23-24.NLT

I am the Lord thy God

I have always loved my creation

My wrath is never for long even then it is for your good

For I am rich in love and abounding in joy 

Become aware of my abiding presence and know that my peace is abundant and plentiful.

I shall protect those who are loyal to me

Be amazed at my outpouring in the days to come the arrogant shall feel me like never before

I shall make myself known

Every knee shall bow before me

Come you who are called by my name let us declare peace and joy and protection in the Holy Ghost.

Be amazed at what I shall accomplish through my faithful ones.

They shall be a force in the world of darkness for they shall declare my light to a dying world.

Amen


Monday 1 April 2024

Mind and spirit 

 

Surely I can do this for you 

Tomorrow is the day when all thing shall be resolved

Psalm 103 He will grant favor to His People

Psalm 103

 

 

Of David.

 

1 Praise the Lord, my soul;

    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

 

2 Praise the Lord, my soul,

    and forget not all his benefits—

 

3 who forgives all your sins

    and heals all your diseases,

 

4 who redeems your life from the pit

    and crowns you with love and compassion,

 

5 Who satisfies your desires with good things

    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 

6 The Lord works righteousness

    and justice for all the oppressed.

 

7 He made known his ways to Moses,

    his deeds to the people of Israel:

 

8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,

    slow to anger, abounding in love.

 

9 He will not always accuse,

    nor will he harbor his anger forever;

 

10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve

    or repay us according to our iniquities.

 

11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

    so great is his love for those who fear him;

 

12 as far as the east is from the west,

    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

 

13 As a father has compassion on his children,

    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;

 

14 for he knows how we are formed,

    he remembers that we are dust.

 

15 The life of mortals is like grass,

    they flourish like a flower of the field;

 

16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,

    and its place remembers it no more.

 

17 But from everlasting to everlasting

    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,

    and his righteousness with their children’s children—

 

18 with those who keep his covenant

    and remember to obey his precepts.

 

19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,

    and his kingdom rules over all.

 

20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,

    you mighty ones who do his bidding,

    who obey his word.

 

21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,

    you his servants who do his will.

 

22 Praise the Lord, all his works

    everywhere in his dominion.

 

Praise the Lord, my soul.

 

 

Let my inmost being praise his name for He is the forgiver of sins and the healer of diseases

 

He is the redeemer and lifter of my soul

 

He crowns with love and compassion 

 

He gives hope and satisfies my desires so my strength is renewed 

 

He speaks His Word into my heart and I am blessed because of it 


 

Listen to me. 

 

I am the God of all comfort 

 

It is I who loves you beyond measure.

 

I supply all things for am Creator and sustainer of all 

 

By my breath, all things have their being

 

I spoke and light was made 

 

I spoke and darkness was cast down

 

It has always been my desire to bless all creation.

 

Yet do not despair at your hardships and trials

 

For my best soldiers have come through many battles    

 

I am the God who grants peace and favor to the faithful and resilient 

 

Those who persist and persevere through hardship shall not be forgotten 

 

For I am the God who delights to grant good things to those who belong to me

 

Come to me and see if I do not bless you with an abundance you can not contain.


 

He is the God who sustains His people: those who believe in Him.

 

He is majestic and righteous 

 

He is abounding in compassion 

 

He is slow to anger

 

He is the God who grants abundantly to those who revere His name 


Amen

Psalm 132 Faith

Psalm 132

A song of ascents.

Lord, remember David
    and all his self-denial.

He swore an oath to the Lord,
    he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter my house
    or go to my bed,
I will allow no sleep to my eyes
    or slumber to my eyelids,
till I find a place for the Lord,
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

We heard it in Ephrathah,
    we came upon it in the fields of Jaar.
“Let us go to his dwelling place,
    let us worship at his footstool, saying,
‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,
    you and the ark of your might.
May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;
    may your faithful people sing for joy.’”

10 For the sake of your servant David,
    do not reject your anointed one.

11 The Lord swore an oath to David,
    a sure oath he will not revoke:
“One of your own descendants
    I will place on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
    and the statutes I teach them,
then their sons will sit
    on your throne for ever and ever.”

13 For the Lord has chosen Zion,
    he has desired it for his dwelling, saying,
14 “This is my resting place for ever and ever;
    here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it.
15 I will bless her with abundant provisions;
    her poor I will satisfy with food.
16 I will clothe her priests with salvation,
    and her faithful people will ever sing for joy.

17 “Here I will make a horn grow for David
    and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
    but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.”

 

Tell me 

Where is fervent prayer found? 

I tell you 

The most fervent prayer that men utter unto God is found in the trenches during warfare

So why don't we visit the trenches during war to seek a meaningful encounter with God 

I tell you if only you knew  how desperate and urgent the salvation of souls was to God

Move your heart O Christian and become a seeing soul who feels as God feels

Never before in history have souls been more important to God than Now 

Only Father God  knows the day and the hour of completion.

When the final trumpet sounds.

 

Tell me 

Where do you go if you want to meet those with supernatural experiences

I tell you 

It is in the mental wards 

They themselves will tell you of their visions and dreams

They have entered the supernatural realm through an unguarded demonic backdoor 

We however, do not seek supernatural experiences outside the framework of the Word of God.

I tell you 

We need to be open to the things of God

So I tell you 

Develop a healthy sanity and stability around your faith.

 

O for a heart moved with compassion and a sound mind founded on the love of His Christ  

AMEN

 

  

 

 

Jesus is Lord of earth and heaven

Col 2:15

15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

 

think Matilda Wormwood and the Trunch bull

think eggs, rotten tomatoes, cabbage

and being paraded through the streets for all to see  

 

 


 

 

 

 The comparision is a valid one but has some theological issues

Whenever the roman armies defeated a foe. Their Kings and Notable people where paraded through the streets 

The whole nation would have known the enemy had been defeated once and for all.

Defunct of any power or authority

No longer able to mount any form of attack 

The only future they had was of one in chains and bondage with no hope of rescue  

Psalm 130 God is working out your Redemption

 Psalm 130

A song of ascents.

Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
    Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
    to my cry for mercy.

If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
    Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    so that we can, with reverence, serve you.

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
    and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the Lord
    more than watchmen wait for the morning,
    more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    for with the Lord is unfailing love
    and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel
    from all their sins.

 

 

 

Be sure I am working out your redemption

Be as a night watchman waiting for the morning 

The light will dawn and will arise on you and you shall be redeemed.

Put your Hope in me says the Lord 

For I am able to do more than you ask or imagine 

Be still and  know that I am God Almighty 

Put your hope in me says the Lord 

For I am more than able 

Indeed, It is I that am the enabler of men

Be sure I shall deliver you from bondage 

You shall be redeemed.

I shall cause you to rise 

You shall be the head and not the tail 

I shall carve out the road ahead 

I shall remove obstacles and make rough roads smooth 

Be confident says the Lord of lords and King of kings 

Put your hope in Him 

For He is the beginning and the ending  

Your sins will not have mastery over you

For I have given you my Holy Spirit

 AMEN

Psalm 129: Perseverance staying the course

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,”
    let Israel say;
“they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
    but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back
    and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous;
    he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”

May all who hate Zion
    be turned back in shame.
May they be like grass on the roof,
    which withers before it can grow;
a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
    nor one who gathers fill his arms.
May those who pass by not say to them,
    “The blessing of the Lord be on you;
    we bless you in the name of the Lord.”

 

I am the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob 

May you come to know me as Friend and the author of your Salvation 

See you have stayed the course 

You enemy has not prevailed 

O God, thwart the bread basket of those who hate you

Let their crops fail, in shallow ground let them sow their seed

where none can reap or harvest.

Let those that despise the living God be cursed with failure upon failure

Let none grant them a good report 

Let none speak comfort or blessing but let them be cast down to shame

 

I am the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob 

See, I have made a new covenant with my people 

No longer shall you curse your enemy 

But see, now I tell you

Seek the best of your fellow man whether he is good or bad.

For I have bought back man's dominion with a heavy price 

Now, Friend of God most high

Seek the best for your enemy and do good to those who hate you 

Amen 

 

 

 

Psalm 126 Those who sow in sorrow shall reap in joy

Psalm 126

A song of ascents.

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
    we were like those who dreamed,
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
    our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us,
    and we are filled with joy.

Restore our fortunes, Lord,
    like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them.

 



It's time to reflect on your journey.

Ask yourself some serious questions 

Have you grown in faith?

Are you more forgiving? 

Are you a kinder person?

Are you more resilient?

What overall lesson can be learned through your struggle?

It's time to take stock 

What do you need to change to change the way its headed?

 

 

Listen to me says the Lord 

I am the God of surprises!

Surely my best future, planned for you since the dawn of time shall come to pass

Come near and let me speak with you

You are my beloved and I have seen fit to bestow great things upon you  

I shall reveal my plans to you says the Lord.

Submit to me and my judgements says the Lord 

For I am Holy and Righteous 

I am the Judge who seeks the best for you and your household.
