Digging the Wells of Revival
The first prophetic visions Nov to Jan 2009 about Wales - AM
A VISION of the Fire of God! Jan 19th 2009
A few days later I received a vision "I AM SENDING FIRE ON SASKATCHEWAN" AND "EVERYWHERE YOU SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS I AM SENDING FIRE FROM THE NORTH".
This short vision triggered off a great journey.
Various other words and visions came during this week and I wrote them down and only released them on 23/05/2010 see below:-
As a result of these visions received early January 2009 I ended up going to a conference in Saskatoon Saskatchewan in May 2009.
Match and Coal
A lady flew in from across Canada on the last night of the conference and God had told her to deliver 2 items to someone in this conference. She realised they were for me as I was the only one from Wales in the room. She presented them to me.
One of the items was a piece of shiney black anthracite COAL (WELSH COAL) and the other was a LARGE MATCH. In years gone by Welsh coal has been taken to other lands and it has taken revival with it! Welsh anthracite is the purest hottest burning coal in the world.
The story is that when Welsh coal was taken to other nations from this revival land revival broke out in the those nations.
Over the next 16 months the Lord began to speak to me about the timing of a great awakening and revival. Here is the word given over the 16 months period from Jan 2009 to May 2010 and released on 23/05/2010.
A Different Spirit! (23/05/2010)Prophetic word.
‘Let us be of a different spirit like Caleb and Joshua who inherited their promised land because they trusted God ‘wholeheartedly’ to deliver that which was promised through Moses’.
God began to speak to me very clearly in January 2009 about what He would do by 2014 in our land if we sought Him and His purposes wholeheartedly.
During one service in Elim City Temple Swansea I heard the Lord say
“This place has a Caleb Spirit, a different Spirit.”
I remembered that at 85 years old Caleb said ‘Give me this mountain’, he took hold of his promised land, his inheritance. Then some time later I found out that the church had been birthed 80 years ago and had an inheritance of healings, salvations and manifestations of the love of God.
I felt the Lord was saying to us that if we pressed in to the Lord with the attitude of Caleb and Joshua we could re-open these old wells, the foundations of the church within 5 years (2014-15), by the time the church was 85 years old. (This began in November 2010 and carries on until Nov 2015)
Just bear in mind this timeline (5 years from 2010) and I will show you later how the Lord communicated this timescale in other ways, saying that we could receive our inheritance.
Please read and look closely at Joshua 14: 6-15.
6 Now the men of Judah approached Joshua at Gilgal, and Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him “You know what the Lord said to Moses the man of God at Kadesh Barnea about you and me. 7 I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh Barnea to explore the land, and I brought him back a report according to my convictions, 8 but my brothers who went up with me made the hearts of the people sink.
I suggest that the attitude of the brothers was that of seeing the difficulties, pressures, past history, weariness or just looking at man and speaking these bad reports all the time. This made the peoples heart sink.
But Caleb who had ‘a different Spirit’ brought back a report according to his convictions. I am sure that his convictions were based on the promises of God and how the Lord would see this situation. He had an attitude like Abraham ‘who did not waver at the promise’ and this was credited to him as righteousness. God wanted them to posses the land, enlarge expand increase and prosper in the land for their good and the good of generations to come.
Do you hear the Lord saying that we can take our inheritance of his glorious outpouring of His Spirit 80 years ago for us and our children if we have this attitude of spirit? We can have it if we pray for 5 years 2014-15, when the church is in its 85th year.
Verse 8b I however followed the Lord my God WHOLEHEARTEDLY.
9 So that day Moses swore to me “The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children for ever because you have followed the Lord my God wholeheartedly.
10 Now then just as the Lord promised he has kept me alive for 45 years since the time he said this to Moses. So here I am at 85 years old.
Many have prayed for years and years. Don’t lose heart.
11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out. I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. 12 Now give me this hill country that the lord promised me that day. 13 Joshua blessed Caleb and gave him Hebron as his inheritance.
In verse 15 “then the land had a rest from war”
I felt that the Lord tied psalm 85 to this word. The same number as Caleb’s age and it speaks of favour which is already inherent in the land. Wales has had many revivals. Lord do it again! Please read psalm 85.
1 You showed favour to your land O Lord, you restored the fortunes O Jacob
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered their sins
3Yyou set aside your wrath and turned from your fierce anger!
4 Restore us again O God our Saviour & put away your displeasure towards us.
5 Will you be angry with us for ever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Will you not revive us again that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your unfailing love O Lord and grant us your salvation!
8 I will listen to what the Lord will say, he promises peace to his people his saints, but let them not return to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him that His Glory may dwell in our land.
10 Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth and righteousness looks down from heaven
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good and our land will yield its harvest
13 Righteousness goes before him and prepares a way for his steps.
Now let me enlarge on the other things that the Lord had said in 2009 about revival if we prayed for 5 years.
On the second week in Jan 2009 (about the same time is receiving the Caleb word) I was worshipping the Lord and I saw a flame of fire and the Northern Lights in the Spirit, and heard God say to me "I am going to send my fire on Saskatchewan and from that place I will light many fires up the Northwest into Alaska and everywhere you see the Northern Lights I will send revival.".
I knew this was in Canada somewhere and found the province of Saskatchewan on the world map in the room I was in at the time. I was drawn to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. When I typed in ‘Saskatoon revival’ I was amazed to see that the Canadian revival happened there in 1971.
Click on the following link to watch part 1 (you can also watch the other parts of the story which are alongside part 1) of Bill Mcloed giving the history of events leading up to the Saskatoon Revival
The city and province were transformed and many people wept in repentance and lasting change happened.
This revival was started by Bill McLeod, a pastor whom God told to pray for revival.
He started a prayer meeting and this prayer meeting grew and grew exploding into revival within a 5 year period. Through this divine revelation God has given us a blueprint to pray revival and is saying that we too can have this if we pray for 5 years if we want (by 2015).
On a downloaded message from Bill McLeod about the revival he opened with the words from psalm 85.
In 2007 'Celebration for the Nations’ event was birthed in the summer in Llanelli. Hundreds from South Korea and hundreds of other nationalities joined in 'singing to the wells' in Wales all day for 8 days believing for God to open revival wells in Wales once again. God responded by giving us deep seated repentance followed by exuberant joy.
The 'Revival Korea' worship team leaders felt that God was telling them to carry on gathering the people in Wales for a total of 7 celebrations spanning 6 years which takes them up to the last one will be in the summer 2013 (the latter part of 2013).
Finally the Saskatchewan vision above took me out to Canada in May 2009. I bought some Northern Lights pictures and when I arrived back in Wales I took them to Crosshands to be framed. The framer said that he had seen the Northern lights in Crosshands when he was a boy.
Suddenly I felt that the Lord was saying that when you we the Northern lights in Wales it will be a sign coinciding with revival in the land.
I searched for pictures of the Northern Lights in Wales and found some taken over Anglesey in 2003. The photographer informed me that although a rare event in Wales they are likely to be seen every 10-12 years due to the high activity of the sun.
This puts the time again at 2014-2015.
So in summing up I feel that we should take this timeline seriously!
Heb 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Isaiah 49: 8-9
In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you;
I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘be free!’
Joshua 1: 3 and 9
“I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Gal 6: 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up!
Prophecy Saskatoon/Saskatchewan and Welsh body of believers 31/03/2009
In the early hours of this morning 31st March, I could not go back to sleep and I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit intensely (Not a regular occurrence for me to wake up in the middle of the night). I got up and began to pray for allsorts of things for 40 minutes then I asked Him about Saskatoon.
I immediately saw a vision of a temple fully constructed. I had the sense that the Lord was saying that He has built his temple there in Saskatoon and it is ready! My mind was directed to 2Chronicles 7 14. If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen this temple so that my Name may be there for ever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
Now this has been quoted many times all over the place but I felt the Lord nudging me to read the previous verses!!!
Verse 11 When Solomon had finished the temple of the Lord and the Royal palace, and had succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do and in his own palace ( I feel that the Lord is saying to you that he can direct the Kings thoughts wherever He pleases, just as water flows into irrigation ditches, and as you have carried out and continue to carry out what He puts in your mind to do) verse 12 the Lord appeared to him at night and said (HE VISITED HIM AND SPOKE TO HIM (this is 3:45 in the night/morning)). He is coming to visit in a new way.
“I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices”!!!!! WOW
I’ve pondered ‘on what kind of sacrifices does He want?’
Ps 51 17 ‘the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart. O God you will not despise.’
The Lord then led me to Malachi 3: 1-6
1 “See I will send my messenger before me who will prepare the way for me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to His temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come” says the Lord Almighty. 2 But who can endure the day of His coming? Who can stand when He appears? For He will be like a refiners fire and purifier of silver; He will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then he Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, 4 and offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord, as in days gone by, as in former years. 5 So I will come near to you for judgement. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud labourers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the Fatherless, and deprive aliens of justice, but do not fear me” says the Lord Almighty.
The Lord suddenly came to visit the temple!! The worshippers (Levites) were refined first. Are the worship leaders undergoing God’s fire at the moment? - may this be an encouragement to them that the Lord is about to breakthrough using them as they lead the assembly in the coming days.
Heb 10: 35 – 39.
Great thought this week. THE LORD ALWAYS COMES IN FIRE TO CONSUME THE LIVING SACRIFICES. IF WE WANT FIRE ALL WE HAVE TO BE IS A LIVING SACRIFICE!
2 CHRONICLES 7 1-10
1 Peter 2: 4 -5 AS you come to Him the Living Stone-rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to Him-you also, like living stones are being built into a spiritual house to be a Holy Priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God, through Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2 11, 12 Dear friends I urge you as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among pagans that though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and GLORIFY GOD ON THE DAY HE VISITS US.
Luke 19 1-10 verse 5 The great thoughts I got from this passage were that Zacchaeus went undignified in pursuit of Jesus who was passing by. Jesus knew His heart and was drawn by his sacrifice and abandoned heart and as a result Jesus went to His house that day. Zacchaeus had a life changing encounter!
In summary I feel the Lord wants to visit but not only to visit but to DWELL with you who are pressing in, and forming His temple and offering yourselves as living sacrifices to him, not just to visit but to abide and the flame of fire I saw settling on Saskatoon will be a precursor to many other fires up into the Northwest.
Psalm 29 verses 10, 11 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever 11 The Lord gives strength to His people the Lord blesses His people with peace.
Prophetic Words 2011 by A M
In the month of February 2011 the Lord gave me a vision in the meeting. It was a foggy still morning at Pisgah Chapel followed by the sunrise, the dew was sparkling on the grass. Later in the prayer time the Lord reminded me of Psalm 110: vs 1- 3.
"1 The Lord says to my Lord 'Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet ".
2 The Lord will extend your mighty sceptre from Zion, you will rule in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle, arrayed in Holy Majesty
From the womb of the dawn you will receive the dew of your youth (Your youth like the dew).
The Lord was re-iterating His promise that He was going to send a mighty army that He has dressed ready for battle, to pray and press forward to take the Promised Land that was promised to Evan Roberts in Wales 1904, and to Caleb and Joshua and the young Israelites in the book of Joshua and numbers 13.
The next Saturday morning was foggy and the dew was thick and as the sun came up millions of pure glistening droplets of dew were seen all over the grass around Pisgah.
That evening young people came and a 'Spirit of grace and supplication fell upon the House of David' Zech 12: 10 and we wept for revival in the land once more. God is faithful!!
In October we met early morning (first time for 5 months) on the festival fields in Llanelli, a place where the South Koreans and many others came to celebrate and 'Sing to the wells of revival in Wales', the sun came up, it was golden and all the droplets of dew were glistening golden, Praise God!! He is faithful to His promise.
Young people have come recently from the local area and enjoyed praying for other youth around Loughor and surrounding areas. 8 young people received salvation at a recent youth concert in Penyreol (November) Praise the Lord, which was organised by a local church.
Vision of fire coming down on earth cleansing the Body of Christ pre-revival.
Between July and August 2011 the Lord began to speak about fire. During the Celebration for the Nations www.celebrationforthenations.org gathering in Llanelli I felt the Lord was asking us "What is the result, and will be the result of all this praise worship and Singing to the Wells Num 21:17 during these events?"
He led me to Rev 8, 1-5. There had been silence in heaven for about half an hour after the 7th seal had been opened. There were 7 angels with 7 trumpets. Another angel, who had a golden censer, stood at the altar. He had been given much incense to offer along with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense along with the prayers of the saints went up before God from the angel’s hand, then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth, and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
The result would be that fire would be hurled on the earth!
Jesus said in Luke 12:49 "I have come to bring fire on the earth and how I wish it was already kindled". 50 "But I have a baptism to undergo and how distressed I am until it is completed". His baptism was death on the cross. In preparation for a coming revival the Lord is asking us to identify with the Lord's suffering and death at the cross, the persecution associated with the cross, dying to self and following Him wholeheartedly.
1 Corinthians 1:18 (The power of the cross). Hebrews 12 1-13 describes this process well and the end result will be that we share in His holiness. Without holiness it is impossible to see the Lord. With Him we will see Him. We will endure all for the joy set before us (for the many souls saved in the land)
Malachi 3 1-5 describes what happens when suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple. He comes as a refiner's fire and a launderer’s soap. He with sit as a refiner and purifier of silver purifying the Levites (the worshipping priests) making them like gold and silver. Acceptable sacrifices will then be given to the Lord.
Will we as the body of Christ in Wales allow the Lord to purify us enough to be willing to endure all to go out to preach the gospel in words and deeds to all those around? Will we be willing to say the things that the Lord wants us to say enduring the persecution that may follow? Will we allow Christ to shine in us so that all men will see Him Jesus lifted up once more? Will we pray without ceasing for the great awakening promised?
Isaiah 6 describes the glory of the Lord and the fiery Seraphim touching Isaiah's lips and his entire DNA with the burning coal from the altar purifying him ready for service. The more we see him the more we realise we need this fiery encounter to become pure, spotless in this generation in which we shine like stars in the universe correctly holding out the word of life to others in need.
Will we as 2 Chronicles 7:14-16 states 'If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be opened and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there for ever.
My eyes and my heart will always be there!!!
1 Peter 4 12-19 talks about participating in the sufferings of Christ but rejoicing that the Spirit of glory and of God rest upon us. Let us not be ashamed of the cross of Christ. The Lord says "for it is time for judgement to begin with the family of God (Verse 17). This is so we can radiate Christ to others and give them the hope of glory that is in our hearts.
Run with the Fire! Prophetic Word for 2012 Received Dec 2011 by A M
Firstly I want to take a look at Malachi 4: 1- 5. 1 “Surely the day is coming it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and the evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire” says the Lord Almighty, “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. 2 But for you who revere my Name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and you will go out and leap like calves released from the
stall. 3 Then you will trample down the wicked, they will be ashes under the soles of
your feet on the day when I do these things, “says the Lord Almighty. 4 “Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.
5 “See I will send you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. 6 He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.”
This word seems to follow on from the word received towards the end of last year about the fire that is coming to Wales (see prophetic words 2011 tab above) on the body of believers and unbelievers alike.
We can see that the day is coming (verse 1) it will burn like a furnace. We have a choice whether to accept it and revere the Lord’s name or reject it and not heed the warning. If we accept the refining then the great anointing will increase on our lives, we will be healed of allsorts of maladies and our youth will be renewed. We will have energy, supernatural strength to run with His fiery anointing.
In Colossians 1: 28-29 Paul says 28 “We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.
29 To this end I labour, struggling with all his energy that so powerfully works in me!” The Lord will give us victory over His enemies and He will send us a mighty youth awakening and revival to build His kingdom.
Psalm 110: vs 1-3.
"1 The Lord says to my Lord 'Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.
2 The Lord will extend your mighty sceptre from Zion, you will rule in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle, arrayed in Holy Majesty from the womb of the dawn you will receive the dew of your youth (Your youth like the dew).
In this coming year I believe the increased anointing of the Spirit will meet the word in our lives and as we speak the word from our mouths, it will accomplish the purpose it was sent for. (Isaiah 55:11)
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, Jesus Himself. At His baptism the Spirit rested upon Him, heaven opened and the Father from His heart voiced His ultimate approval “This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased”. This is a picture of an open heaven, hearing and seeing what the Father sees and hears and the Holy Spirit resting powerfully on the Word of God, Jesus.
We can walk with such anointing and authority in the coming days, speaking the word and acting out what we see and hear the Father doing just as Jesus did what He saw or heard the Father doing. All His promises are YES and AMEN.
In Malachi 4 verse 4 we see the Word of God in the laws and decrees of Moses, but the Spirit of Elijah is needed for full restoration of the Father heart of God (and earthly fathers) to His children and the hearts of the children to the Father (and earthly fathers). 5 “See I will send you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. 6 He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.”
This coming year we will be empowered by the Spirit (in Isaiah 61) to move in this restoration of hearts, proclaiming Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith. As you can see if this is accomplished then the land will be blessed and not cursed.
James 1: 27 says “Religion that our God and Father accepts as pure and faultless is this ‘to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.’”
Proverbs 31 8-9 says “Speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Isaiah 49:8-9 In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; 9 I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘be free!’
So keep praying: - 2 Chronicles 7: 14-16 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears be attentive to the prayers offered in this place.16 I have chosen and consecrated this Temple so that my Name may be there for ever. My eyes and My Heart will always be there.
So I exhort you to run the race this coming year with perseverance with the fiery anointing of His love, with His energy that so powerfully works within us to transmit His heart to the lost!
Tears of Intercession Prophetic Word received Feb 2012 by AM
At the beginning of February we received a vivid picture of the tears of Jesus as He was weeping in intercession for humanity. Every tear that we shed with Him, by His Spirit with His heart for the lost, for Jerusalem, for His plans and purposes would become like rivers of life into people's lives and rivers of life into whole regions, changing the atmosphere and releasing the captives.
During the following week we met a man whose life had been dominated by this verse - John 11:35, Jesus wept. As we prayed for Him we all wept and He was mightily touched by His grace and love. God was confirming His word in the natural to us, that He was about to stir us to greater intercession in our land. He was pouring on us a Spirit of Grace and supplication upon us the House of David. Hos 12:10.
The words of Luke 19:41 say that Jesus beheld the city and wept over it. We are to weep over Jerusalem and stand as watchmen on the walls, day and night not being silent until He establishes Jerusalem and makes Her the praise of the earth. Is 62:6,7
Joel 2 says " 17 Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the temple porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, LORD". Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’” We are to pray for Israel, for the lost the treasures hidden in darkness for the young people in the land.
At the same time the Lord spoke these words of encouragement from the psalms moving us to continual prayer this year so that we would receive all that He has promised, which is the joy of seeing the lost come to Christ, young and old. Ps 30:5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Ps 126:4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev. 5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. 6 Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
So we are expectant that the Lord will increase our intercession supernaturally which is exciting as it will bring revival to our land. Galatians 6: 9 'Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up'.
Restoration of the apostolic foundation June 2012
On June 2nd we had an amazing time with 17 Canadians in Moriah Chapel and in Loughor as we prayed and worshipped together. Pastor Janet had left Wales with her parents when she was twelve years old , and now was coming back for their legacy. This meeting during the day had released a greater anointing at night into Pisgah House of Prayer. A word about God building His church upon the foundations of the Apostles and Prophets with Christ at the Head was received from God.
Pisgah Chapel, the well we are digging was the source of the Apostolic Church movement which began in Penygroes when D.P.Williams was prayed for by the people in Pisgah in approximately 1929. God moved in power on us and filled us with fire on the site of the old coal mine in Loughor. Jane and her husband John did not know that Pisgah was the source of the apostolic church on Penygroes and neither did we. God led them straight to their legacy to impart them afresh to go back to Canada with the fire.
All this led me to believe that God was saying that out of this next revival He would build church once again on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets with Christ at he head. He would restore the 5 fold ministry to bring the Body into fullness in Christ.
Eph 2:19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Eph 3 Mystery of Christ revealed.
Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets. 6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
7 I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. 8 Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ, 9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. 10 His intent was that now, through the CHURCH, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11 according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
Unity in the Faith and Maturity bringing Fullness of Christ
7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. Gifts to His people.
11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
We are encourage to press on to continually pray for the body of Christ even after revival has broken out that the fullness of God's intention is realised, the establishment of His body on earth ready for Him.
On the 2nd of August this word was confirmed in Cardiff by Ian Clayton from New Zealand in Cardiff on the first night of the Courts and Government of Heaven conference held by the Company of Burning Hearts where he spoke on the above.
Let us hold on to the hope we profess - a word of encouragement Sept 2012
During this last week (First week September 2012) the Lord spoke a very distinct word to me. "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful."
Heb 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” 38 And,” But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”
39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.
When people train for Olympics they have 4 years for a couple of races lasting a few minutes or hours, that’s 1461 days of discipline and hardship. We need to have this mentality in praying for revival in the church and an awakening in the land.
2 Tim 2:3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
Heb 12:12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Phil 2:14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labour in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.
A Call to Persevere
Jude 1: 17- 23 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. 18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” 19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— 25 to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
Finally Heb 10: 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
WE WERE ENCOURAGED THAT GOD WILL COME AS HE HAS PROMISED AND HE WILL DO WHAT HE HAS SAID HE WOULD.
God is the builder. Word given by Anon Dec 2012
God is the builder. I declare for He himself is our peace, who has made the two one. And has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, Eph 2:14 - and in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which god lives by His spirit. Eph 2:22 (Jews and gentiles).
Zech 2: 3- 6
3 While the angel who was speaking to me was leaving, another angel came to meet him 4 and said to him: “Run, tell that young man, ‘Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of people and animals in it. 5 And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’
This is a spiritual place in His presence and the Lord in Isaiah 49:16 said See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me, ie the walls of Jerusalem. So Lord 'Do we need to meet in our old meeting place where the walls have fallen down?' because the Christians have already left there and gone where you want them to be - because Jesus is for the whole world - and we can't contain you Lord. So if You want us to have the first chapel back, fine, but if not - let us fly like eagles for Your Glory
STAND, STAND, STAND. Prophetic Word 9/03/2013 AM
If we could go forward in time to see how things worked out, we would probably see that the answer came just round the corner, in the next few minutes or next few days. That's why it is important to stand until the answer comes because it surely will, so hold on unswervingly to the hope you profess.
Even if you are the only one left. STAND, STAND STAND.
LET US TAKE A LOOK AT SHAMMAH, ONE OF DAVID'S MIGHTY MEN
2 Sam 23 11 Next to him was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel’s troops fled from them. 12 But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the LORD brought about a great victory. HE TURNED THE TIDE WHEN ALL HAD ABANDONED HOPE AND HAD RUN AWAY.
Ezekiel 22:30 “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. Ezekiel 33: 7 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.
WEAR YOUR ARMOUR WHEN STANDING
Eph 6: 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 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 the entire Lord’s people.
To pray in this way it must look like a force field around us to the enemy which helps us to stand against temptations being clothed in righteousness.
Mark 14 37 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Simon,” he said to Peter, “are you asleep? Couldn’t you keep watch for one hour? 38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
HAVING THE CORRECT ATTITUDE ENABLES US TO STAND
1 peter 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.
This is how we stand Firm; This is how to do it
13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as first fruits[b] to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings[c] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.
16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
TO STAND WE MUST ARISE
Is 52; 2 Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem.
Free yourself from the chains on your neck,
Daughter Zion, now a captive
Song of Songs 2: 8-10 My beloved spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.
11 See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.
12 Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
When confident of God’s love you can arise and look the world in the eye.
ARISE, SHINE LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE
When you receive a knighthood afterwards you arise with a different name (Sir) and are endued with power and authority from on high.
Is 60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
YOU WILL SHINE
Daniel 12: 3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
Phil 2 :14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[c] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labour in vain.
2 Sam 23: 3-4 “The Spirit of the LORD spoke through me; his word was on my tongue.
3 The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me:
When one rules over people in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God,
4 he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.
STAND IN THE TRUTH LIKE THE PROPHETS OF OLD.
Jeremiah 1 17 “Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. 18 Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. 19 They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
I URGE YOU TO TAKE ACTION BY STANDING TO MOVE FROM THE OLD PLACE TO THE NEW PLACE.
Knighthood endued with healing power and authority of his name.
Psalm 145 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations.
The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.
14 The LORD upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. Miracle in scripture of bowed down person in Elim city temple
Psalm 146 7-9 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets prisoners free, 8 the LORD gives sight to the blind,
the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.
ELIM SWANSEA WAS FOUNDED IN 1929 WHEN A MAN WITH CURVATURE OF THE SPINE WAS HEALED. This began healings and salvations in Swansea and all around.
Luke 13: 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
SHE AROSE AND TOOK HOLD OF IT.
Paralytic. 5 One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
7 “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”
8 Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” 9 At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked
Just imagine wallowing for 38 years, thinking everyone was healed and not you.
HE AROSE INTO HIS HEALING, PICKED UP HIS MAT AND WALKED.
GIDEON AROSE OUT OF INFERIORITY
Gideon Judges 6:12 12 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, The Lord is with you, you mighty man of [fearless] courage. This would cause you to rise up wouldn’t it???
13 And Gideon said to him, O sir, if the Lord is with us, why is all this befallen us? And where are all His wondrous works of which our fathers told us, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? But now the Lord has forsaken us and given us into the hand of Midian.14 The Lord turned to him and said, Go in this your might, and you shall save Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you? 15 Gideon said to Him, Oh Lord, how can I deliver Israel? Behold, my clan is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.
