Moving to a new location!

3 months ago

I get the feeling that the relocating of my website is a prophetic sign in itself – a sign of the end of a season in which we have grown comfortable with the way things work and confident in the familiarity of our surroundings both naturally and spiritually. Now suddenly a new season begins and everything feels different! No longer can we go through the motions on autopilot. Every step must be considered, measured and then plunged into, with an accompanying feeling of trepidation as the outcome in this new place is not assured…. This is a good thing, I think because it makes us less cocky and more dependent on the leading of the Spirit; more aware of our smallness and the need for our Father’s guidance and presence in this strange new place! Yes! I know I am only setting up a new website. It’s not like I am climbing into a space shuttle… but considering that I have never been this way before, it feels just about as daunting. Yet, at the same time I know there is a moment to be seized, both in this small practicality and in a larger sense in the spiritual realm. Enlarge the place of your tent…stretch out…lengthen and strengthen your stakes. Why? Because you are going to get visitors that you didn’t expect and you need room to accommodate them! The barren woman needs only one bedroom in her house but when God announces a new season, there are things to be done and leaps of faith to be taken and after He has spoken this instruction, nothing is ever the same again. Is anyone identifying with me? Being conformed to His death is a long process. The flesh dies very slowly and reluctantly but finally the tomb comes… and it is quiet in there. No visitors to plan for. Just you and God. But did you know the Hebrew word for ‘tomb’ means ‘a stack of sheaves’? So the grain of wheat that has fallen to the ground brings forth fruit. Out of quiet intimacy in the hidden place of the closed tomb comes an explosive new chapter. The tomb becomes a womb which brings forth more children than the married wife. God says you are going to break out on the right hand and on the left. Something bigger than you have known or experienced is about to come forth. From the place of small known parameters, He is bringing you forth into a large place – because He delights in you! And yes, that sounds good but as anyone who has done tomb time knows, it is also very scary. It is like being thrust onto the dance floor to take part in a dance which you don’t know the steps for and the music is something your ears have never heard. The only familiar thing is your Dance Partner! He will get you through this. You have danced with Him before, face to face, in the secret place. This isn’t going to be that different, as long as you hold on tight and keep your eyes on Him. Feel His hand at your back leading you gently each step of the way. Do not fear. You will not be ashamed (Is 54:4) I woke last night at 4:20am with a verse; Romans 1:4 and a flooding awareness that God is about to declare His sons in power by bringing them out of the tomb. Rom 1:4 who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord… The time 4:20 refers to the 42nd generation from Adam; the many sons Jesus is bringing to glory, but what struck me is that the above verse stresses the involvement of the Spirit of holiness. That says to me that only those who are not their own, who are set apart as bond-slaves for the King of Glory will follow in His footsteps… not those who declare that the outpouring is coming; not those who stand behind pulpits necessarily…but those who have done tomb-time, become conformed! And outside the tomb is very different to inside. The wide open space can be disconcerting after such a confined season. You may even wonder why you longed for the season to change… Fruitfulness brings activity and interaction and responsibility. Prepare you heart for change. In ways you haven’t even imagined yet..

This article continues to add revelation concerning the Spirit coming from the four winds.

The Spirit Wind Quartet

4 months ago

The 31st May is the anniversary in the Hebrew Calendar of the day when the Spirit came like a mighty rushing wind upon the disciples, the Lord has been speaking to me much about the wind of the Spirit and focussing on the scene in Ezekiel, where the bones have all come together, bone to its bone. Muscle and sinew is added, but the bones are still lying inert and lifeless. They are going to rise up as a mighty army when the whole process is complete but even when structure and connection and order is in place, life is still absent. In some ways, this is a picture of those who are waiting to be catapulted into the mighty move of Heaven spoken of for so many years....

On the Lip of Outpouring

4 months ago

Today, the 24th May 2017 is the 43rd day of the omer. It is the day when Jesus ascended to the Father, leaving the disciples to complete His instructions by spending the last week of the count in the upper room. This is the week of the upper room! Over the years, I have written a number of times about this time period and its spiritual implications. I was led to read through those articles and felt strongly to take portions of them and send a ‘patchwork’ of those bits that are relevant today, before I send out the message the Lord gave me for this year. My comments are in bold italics. May you be blessed and receive confirmation of where you are in His process

Podcast of the Introduction to 'Give Me Back My Wife'

4 months ago

Many things have competed for the attention of the Beloved of the Lord. Religion is ever waving its tentacles, trying to detain her. The Spirit of this age assaults her defenses with ever increasing ferocity. At times, it has seemed like her attention has been completely captured by inferior suitors. Now, God’s patience is exhausted. And many can hear His Roar reverberating in the heavenlies. And it is not the sound of an approaching storm front… although it may be accompanied by one, both in the natural and spiritual realm! It’s a demand, a shout of ownership that cannot be silenced... Listen to the Introduction to this book!

At last, the newest member of my family of books has arrived!

Many things have competed for the attention of the Beloved of the Lord. Religion is ever waving its tentacles, trying to detain her. The Spirit of this age assaults her defenses with ever increasing ferocity. At times, it has seemed like her attention has been completely captured by inferior suitors. But now, God's patience is exhausted. And now there is a Roar reverberating in the heavenlies. And it is not the sound of an approaching storm front... although it may be accompanied by one, both in the natural and spiritual realm! Its a demand, a shout of ownership that cannot be silenced. The Lion of Judah wants His wife back! You can access the e-book at Lulu.com by clicking on the photograph. ( it will soon be available on I-books and Amazon). Please pray with me for a way to be opened for printing of hard copies. I will also be making an audio version available in the near future. My prayer has been that the breath of God would ignite every word as you read and impart the roar of the Lion of Judah within your own spirit, so that every place still surrendered to His ownership would be swept up into Him; that every set of prison bars challenging the fullness of His purpose in you would be shaken and fall. May He receive all that He has paid for in Blood and may your life become part of that mighty roar in the earth!

It's Time

5 months ago

On April 22nd of 2017, I attended a prayer meeting called ‘It’s Time’, where almost 2 million people left the places where they lived and came together in a field on a farm outside Bloemfontein (flowering fountain) in South Africa. I believe this gathering is a prophetic sign, a clock marker to the rest of the world about the time we are entering – the gathering of the woman in the wilderness in the place that has been prepared for her.

Passover 2017 ~ a time for total consecration

5 months ago

Beloved, this Passover season is like no other in our lifetime. The hour is very late and the urgency to fully consecrate tot he Lord has never been higher. Its time to leave and cleave; to fully lay hold of that for which Christ laid hold of you when He paid that Bridal Price in His precious Blood all those years ago. You have been brought to the kingdom for such a time as this! However, one cannot enter fully into what He has prepared for you unless you separate fully from all that defiles. It is not acceptable to have one foot on both sides of the dividing line of the Blood. Listen to this podcast as I share connections to unfolding world events.

The Parable of the Ring ~ video format

6 months ago

Some years ago, I wrote a short parable about a ring. In essence, it portrayed the journey each of us makes as a living stone, searching for our perfect setting and place in the purposes of God. Recently, I was prompted to put it together in a visual form, as the Lord had been emphasising so much to me of the importance of sound and light. As I revisited the story line, I was once again made aware of how much we as the Church have complicated something which God intended to be profoundly simple. Jesus came to pave the way for an intimate relationship with the Godhead for whom we were created. He did not come to give us a ministry so much as to introduce us to the delight of walking again in the garden in the cool of the day and hearing the voice of the One Who would reveal Himself within us as the light of the world. We have made so many hoops for ourselves to jump through, when all He desires is for us to come to Him and drink deeply and often, and to live out of that place. When He engraves upon our hearts, no-one can steal it from us. Nothing can separate us from His love. Absolutely nothing. May you be blessed as you revisit this simple story. If it is the first time you have heard it, may the truths hidden in its folds be deeply impressed upon your memory, to keep you from looking for His face in the wrong places.

Perfect in One ~ re-release

I am posting this message from 2016 again as it is so pivotal to the message of perfect alignment with the sound of Heaven that we are hearing now.

Examining the Touchstone

7 months ago

. In my podcast message after the election of the new president of the United States, I mentioned that I did not think the election of this man had anything to do with making America great again and likened him to a touchstone. This week, the first address to the joint session of Congress took place, during which the President outlined his intended ways to make the nation great again. This article contains insights given from that address.

Invitation to a Feast

7 months ago

I first received this song of the Spirit in October 2007 and a friend in the States put beautiful images to it for me. Recently, the Spirit has again been singing the words deep within my spirit as if wooing another wave of guests to respond to the invitation. May the Spirit penetrate your hearts with the urgency of the invitation, in spite of my untrained voice. The important thing is that a sound has been released into the atmosphere that calls us upward and there is a feast prepared for us right in the presence of our enemies. Be seated in heavenly places and experience a lavish outpouring of His goodness!
