Getting serious

I have had a flood of confirmation regarding the things I shared with you about Kenya and the preceding few weeks - the main part of this confirmation is that this is for the body of Christ and not just my own walk/journey - in summary:

12 November: "Sound the battle cry"; Vision of trumpeters - heralding in the new season

18 November: (Pslm 24): The gates are open, Look up and prepare the way of the Lord.

23 November: (Joshua 3): Time to posses the land, The waters are parted, The season of the first fruits is here.

26 November: New Era - real time picture of flying horses that replicated a prayer vision from about 4 weeks ago.

29 November: The KEY to unlock the gate is handed down (A), Unlock the gates (Bev), buried seed (Brenda), Stir the birth waters (Bev)

A number of the above also confirm a few dreams that I've had over the last few years.
WITHOUT A DOUBT ....... it is now time to prepare to take possession of the land (Joshua 3).  The 40 year period is over and in the spiritual realm the NEW ERA has begun.  I have also noticed a "speeding up" of things .... best we get ready to pack and go.  In relation to a dream (evacuation dream about 4 years ago) - the two key elements to carry are the Word of God and the water of Holy Spirit.

The message that's been laid on my heart is that going into the new year "we have got to get serious" and make a conscious commitment to seeking God's face in our collective worship activities.  If we pack the meetings with activity - there is not much space for God.

The Lord bless thee and keep thee;
The Lord make his face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee and give thee peace- Numbers 6:24-26

Advance and sound the battle cry

3 October 2009: In the early hours of Saturday morning felt compelled to get before the Lord and whilst praying had a vision of a heavenly warrior.  He placed before me a huge shield - so big that it completely covered me.  I looked to my right and I saw a long line of similar warriors - each with their own huge shields - they were shuffling into position - shoulder to shoulder and as they came alongside each other their shields locked onto the shield next to them - in effect forming a solid wall of defense.

Small things that count

My dream, on Saturday night, was about my "grow bag" in the garden - in the spring I'd planted two sweet pepper plants and one chillie plant - they both look the same and I'd been in the garden on Saturday looking at them - cause I could not figure out which one was which.  In the dream I was looking at this grow bag and all three plants were full of fruit and I could easily see which was sweet pepper and which was the chillie - I started to laugh as I could sense God's sense of humour in this - and He asked me to look carefully at them and asked me what I saw: 
  •  When He plants something HE knows what the outcome will be.
  • All three plants are pepper based and are used for flavour - to add to what is already there, they have the same function - however;
  • The smaller chillie fruit has more power in it - greater impact than that of the larger sweet pepper.  Even the tiny seeds inside the chillie carry the fire/flavour
  • It's the small things that count - only one small chillie is needed to flavour an entire meal. 

  • Joy

Paradigm shift

13 September 2009: Sunday night near the end of the time of worship and prayer I had a "picture" of stacks/bundles of wheat all standing upright in a harvested field - they were in a straight line and I felt prompted to count them - 11 in number.  

Initially I dismissed it thinking tha change from one way of thinking to another. It's a revolution, a transformation, a sort of metamorphosis. It just does not happen, but rather it is driven by agents of change" or " The term paradigm shift, as a change in a fundamental model of events"
at perhaps I'd watched & read too much about Joseph.  However, the Holy Spirit kept prompting me to think about it and eventually I investigated the meaning of 11 and …….. 11 means paradigm shift  "

Wheat represents the souls of mankind.

Living on the edge and getting our house in order

8 September 2009: We have to get our house in order for the season that is nearly upon us. (Various visions/dreams below)  We have to ensure that all aspects of finance, church governance, plans, pastoral care etc are in place - in such a manner that it can expand and grow - to prepare for the future in faith. Wealth, talents, gifting & knowledge must be "indexed" and available for use for the Kingdom. The impact of what will happen at FHCC will influence and impact believers (churches) across London and beyond.  If we agree and work in co-operation with Holy Spirit, this work will be swift with a smooth transition.  The work of the Holy Spirit will be deep and powerful.

The caveat!  W
e will be expected to live on the edge - totally out of our comfort zone.  This is not a comfortable place for many and will feel strange.  BUT - God has promised to be with us always and if we move to that cliff edge we will know the fullness of God's plan for us.

On the edge

last night as I closed my eyes I nearly jumped out of my skin as a horse eye was in my face - he moved away and with his head indicated that I was to follow him.  I knew in my spirit that he was a war-horse - he was very large and a deep chestnut colour (reddish black).  I felt no fear - but had sense of peace.

He moved from the lush green area to a desert type place and I realised we had moved to the edge of a prescipice - the ridge of which went on for as far as the eye could see but I had no sense of danger or fear.

The vision ended at this point.
