Yeah yeah, I know I said I wasn’t blogging any more. But then things changed – again. No that person still hasn’t emailed me – yet. But other things have changed. I had a vivid dream about 3 weeks ago – which I then tried quite hard to avoid happening – came true two nights ago. The first part happened that night and then when I was up in the morning, I remembered the dream, realised it had happened… and then remembered the second part… which then happened within a few hours. So God is saying I’m on the right track and things are going as He planned. I guess?! 🙂
So… onto last night’s dream. It was again one of those vivid dreams in which I know I was in bed, but also somewhere else, surrounded by God, not surrounded but He was everywhere and even through me… just everywhere. Was He talking? Yes and no. Was I thinking? Yes and no. It’s hard to tell, because it all just feels so good that you don’t really analyze, you just feel quiet and you enjoy.
So. To the content. I had the clearest sense that it’s time for my prayers – and yours – to change. My sense was SO clear that while I was still “there” I had already begun to pray. So I was in God’s Presence… praying. And then I was in bed praying. What was the essence of the message to me?
To no longer focus on the “sin” aspect, that is already received by faith, but to focus receiving His new life for this world.
So between these *** is the exact essence from God. It may seem small, but in fact it is a HUGE shift in focus. While dealing with sin we experienced an increase in storms, hail, lightning, earthquakes, financial storms, hurricanes around the world starting in 2007. You can see the spike in 2007/2008 and the trend seems to have started around 2005…
This increase in earth activity is also described by Isaiah. As I keep saying, Isaiah describe the times we are living in.
So what does this mean for those of you who have been walking with me through this for the last few months? Well, assuming you read “Intercession that works! – The peelback method” the change is to no longer focus on the “sin” aspect, but to focus on the new life that Jesus Christ brought to the world – which needs to be received by faith.
For example, focus on this verse…
Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life]. – 1 Cor 15:45
You can claim that we all are no longer under the law of sin and death, but are under the law of LIFE and the Holy Spirit. You can also claim that His LIFE has spread to everyone
Is it prayer? Is it intercession? Is it prophecy? Is it receiving by faith? Yes, I think it’s all three. 🙂
One of the most difficult things in prophecy is sticking to what you know to be true. For example I know God is FOR Australia and He is blessing Australia (Australia records biggest trade surplus – Dec5, 2008 – 1:05PM). Did you see that the time on that story was about 30 minutes ago? I noticed the record surplus in October, but this one is even bigger.
Come on, give the Lord Jesus a big hand everyone! 🙂
And so He says He will send rains and make the rivers and lakes run. And He makes them run. But then I hear shrieks and wailing and gnashing of teeth as the rains interrupt the harvest. I look at the rain maps and I wonder if I got it wrong, should I interfere with prayer to Him, should I just trust that He is as capable as He says?
So I decided to trust. Day and after day the wailing continued. I kept trusting. Now, just a short time later this comes up…
In Australia, recent heavy rain, while delaying the harvest, created near-ideal conditions for a big summer crop in northern NSW and Queensland. – Nufarm heading for a record
Muhahaha! What was I fretting about? The same thing happened earlier this year when hail pummeled the wheat harvest belt in Western Australia. Gnashing of teeth ensued. I stressed and I wondered what God was doing.
Had He got it wrong? No, of course not. The harvest was smaller in size, but the yield of each bushel was abnormally high!! So what LOOKED like a disaster was in fact a bumper crop. The lesson? Trust God, even when things look like they are going wrong.
So let’s go back to this change over night. What’s coming? I think it’s the end of one season and the start of another.
This kind of thing ‘Never-ending’ storms head to reeling SE Qld (Friday November 21, 2008 – 17:38 EDT) is all but over. The lightning, the hail, the earthquakes – which has been seen and felt all around the world – will all but stop.
Do you remember how the hurricanes stopped?
- The HURRICANE miracle continues… Jesus CAN do it for this financial storm
- 1 week on the HURRICANE miracle continues – have faith!
- Prophecy – Catastrophe ahead (HURRICANE Ike and financial storms)
I also believe that the financial crisis will simply begin to evaporate. Just as it arrived out of nowhere and people have been trying to figure out what is causing these ripples, I believe it will pass away, astounding the financial brains even more.
The question on my mind all day today is not whether this will happen – but will the leaders acknolwedge it and learn from it and about it.Will people receive the blessing without changing? Or will they be brave and adjust to reality as it really is – not just living in a microcosm, a subset of life, excluding the obvious Presence of God as revealed in Isaiah and as personified through Jesus Christ. No other ancient book promised these things that are happening. Denial is not an option. 🙂
I have been utterly cautious for more than 18 months, testing and retesting… but God has been consistent in doing what He says. So I am now full of confidence. Previously I would receive a dream and journal it and wait to see if it happens… but this one I am blogging right away so that you can join in the excitement of seeing it happen.
I believe that instead of hailstones and lightining cleansing the land, we will now see gentle, soft rain feeding the land. Righteousness will rain down. Lives are already changing, but this what we have seen so far (Cancer cases, deaths drop in both men and women) is NOTHING by comparison to what is to come! The earth will open up and sprout salvation. I have been watching local churches begin to fill up. Conferences report massive first time salvations. Local meetings in Africa of business people expect 80+ people and 150+ show up. It’s everywhere.
And it’s not just about salvation, I’m saying that the rain falls on the righteous AND the “un”righteous – everyone will benefit. And may I HASTEN to add that I am one of the UNrighteous, given my past and my inner tendancies.
He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. – Matt 5:44-45
You see… some people NEED to see the goodness of God BEFORE their heart will soften and they can hear His message of love and then retain that message in their heart. To believe God is kind and loving, when all you have experienced is pain and devastation… that is a tall order. But when your life turns around, when the things that happen are so good and so CLEARLY God… then you may choose to listen… you may choose to strike up a conversation with the weird Christian guy you’ve known for a while. Maybe, just maybe you’ll ask him what up.
Cynisism, hurt, rejection, abandonment… these things harden our heart against believing God is a loving God. But that is not what is going to happen now. I am already seeing it in the people around me. My friend’s marriage has just been restored. Another friend has resolved conflict and wants to make peace with his ex. More and more I hear the same thing… hearts are softening. And when our hearts are softened, the seed of God’s message can enter the heart.
These two verses speak right to this situation… the earthquakes we have recently heard about in the news were simply the earth opening up.
“You heavens above, rain down righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
let salvation spring up,
let righteousness grow with it;
I, the LORD, have created it. – Is 45:8
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise
spring up before all nations. – Is 61:11
Did you know it snowed in Baghdad at Christmas last year?
- First snow for 100 years falls on Baghdad – Jan 11, 2008
- Snow falls on Baghdad for first time in memory
- Iraqis declare Baghdad snow a sign of hope – “It’s a sign of hope. We hope Iraqis will purify their hearts and politicians will work for the prosperity of all Iraqis,” he said.
- A First! Snow Falls in Baghdad – “This is so unusual, and I don’t know whether or not it’s a lesson from God,” Karim said.
And then in 2008 the level of violence dropped so suddenly that it was SURELY a miracle. The rain and snow we have seen are the heavens opening up. This process is now complete, or it is changing to something new. Now it will no longer be violent change, but it will pour out life and healing – and this also is because of the cross of Jesus Christ.
So what should YOU do?
Firstly, read my post about intercession that works. Then put it into action. Cleanse the people around you, have faith for them! Jesus said so!!!
If I then, your Lord and Teacher (Master), have washed your feet, you ought [it is your duty, you are under obligation, you owe it] to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you this as an example, so that you should do [in your turn] what I have done to you. – John 13:14-15
And let me say it again
This is a great time to be alive! 🙂
