GOD IS SAYING, “RESTORE!”

Last time I spoke to you about perseverance of faith, knowing that God works behind the scenes.

I was in worship recently when the Word “Restore” came so strongly in my spirit.

Restore synonyms: reinstate, bring back, reinstitute, reimpose, reinstall, reestablish.

RESTORE!  From the inside out!

God wants to restore Kingdom in you: righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!

Test yourself on this: Am I walking in the fulness of each aspect of the Kingdom?

How does restoration happen? When our faith connects to the Rhema Word of the Lord in worship. Then we hand over everything into His mighty Hand of power, putting our trust completely in Him to restore everything in our lives that was stolen and destroyed, calling it forth and rejoicing in it!

I started looking up the Word in Scriptures and it became a victory shout!

Joel 2: 25-26   And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

This scripture talks about the destruction of the enemy, but also of the abundant provision of the Lord (John 10:10):

Restoration of hearts, of brokenness, of disappointments and woundedness.

Restoration to God as your loving Father, Jesus as your high priest, Holy Spirit as your guide, Teacher, Comforter.

Restoration of Vision and purpose and destiny.

God will restore injustices as the righteous Judge.  His throne is built on righteousness and justice.

WHATSOEVER has been lost or stolen from you by the enemy – be it your possessions, opportunities, relationships, or anything else, God is the One who restores when we put our trust in Him!

Be restored in your true identity and authority in Christ.

Maybe you have missed it somewhere, made the wrong decision and things didn’t work out. Stop blaming yourself or others!  Ask God to forgive you, forgive others and most of all, forgive yourself! Be restored in your true identity.

I have ministered to three people in two days on the topic of being mad at themselves for having made wrong choices, feeling guilty and breaking themselves down in self-accusation.   Rejecting yourself, makes you your own worst enemy!  This will also affect your health! In two of these instances there were skin issues.

Come back to the Lord and receive His forgiveness through repentance.  Then forgive yourself and be restored in the liberty of the Spirit.

God is restoring your soul (wounds) of abandanment and your health.

Jeremiah 30:17 – For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, [saying], This [is] Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

Restoration of the joy of your salvation.

After having committed adultery and murder, King David prayed:

Psalms 51:12 – Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.

Shame and confusion will be restored with double recompense:

Isaiah 61:7 – For your shame [ye shall have] double; and [for] confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

Zech.9:11-12: DOUBLE RESTORATION!

As for you, because of the blood of My covenant, I will release your prisoners from the waterless pit. Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; even today I declare that I will restore to you double.

Lean into the provision of Calvary!

Grace upon grace and strength upon strength in the double!

OPEN THE DOUBLE DOORS, LORD – IN JESUS’ NAME!

1 Cor.2:9: What the eye has not seen, the ear has not heard and has not come up in the mind of men, God has prepared for those who love Him.

The good news is that God not only wants to restore what was stolen from us but bless us with double as in the case of Job.

God told David at Ziklag:  Go and recover all!

Get strengthened in your faith by praying in tongues and access this promise of restoration!

Healing, recompense, restoration is yours as you believe the Word of the Lord!

God want to restore your soul:   beauty for ashes, oil of joy for morning, garments of praise for a spirit of heaviness.

God wants to restore your waste places as you come into His Presence – being transformed through light and truth

He will restore your mind – to know your true identity and authority in Christ!

Grab hold of this Word, Restore, and speak it into every area of your life for God’s glory as you worship the Lord in His glory!

“Will you ROAR with Me?”

During worship I received this vision-Word on February 15th (Elsabe Briers-Bakkes)

As I was worshiping, I saw a blinding light coming to me from the right, but I couldn’t distinguish any form until it stopped before me and the Lord emerged as the roaring Lion, asking me, “Will you roar with Me?”
It was a compelling invitation to me, but I sensed that it was also for His bride. I realized that this was a very weighty invitation, not to be taken lightly, with the fear of the Lord all over me. I broke up, weeping, saying, “Yes, Lord!” and started worshiping Him in the glory as the One who Reigns and rules – my Lord and King – undone in His Presence. It was a stepping-in to a higher release of authority with the ruling Sword on the King’s orders.
Then I saw myself in bridal attire, but it was as if I was representing the company of the bride of Christ, hand-in hand with Him, taking her up to higher places in Zion and Him conveying to her that out of this deeper intimacy He wants the heart of His bride to be so joined to His that she can express His heart, His thoughts, receiving His glorious shifting Word in the spirit to ROAR His prophetic decrees into the areas He shows her where the enemy has invaded and wants to invade. It was not only for her own needs, but especially for the nations. (Ps.2).
I knew He was summoning the warrior bride to use His flaming sword to destroy the frequencies of the enemy over circumstances and over the nations (Ps.2) through prophetic decrees empowered by His roar in ruling authority, setting things in order and shifting that which is out of sync with His will into alignment. (Ps.149)

While sharing this with someone over the phone, the anointing came upon me and I heard the Word, “Let the roar of the Lion of Judah arise in Africa”. Let us declare this in unity as His warrior-bride!

FREELY GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT

FREELY GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT

image

It is of uptmost importance to keep our hearts free, guarding it with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.(Prov.4:23).  

I heard the word, “Pile-ups” in the spirit and knew that the Lord was giving me a warning not to allow issues and difficulties to “pile up” in my consciousness and sub-consciousness, becoming burdens, stresses and pre-occupations.

As I was fellowshiping with a close friend, we realized again how subtle the enemy is, creeping in with all kinds of things that cause stress, stealing your joy.  If we do not deal with these things by bringing it before the Lord, it will pile up  and before you know it, you will be stressed and oppressed, bearing “burdens” which are not from the Lord.  In the process you get distracted and side-tracked from doing what God has called you to do and you lose momentum.

Therefore I want to encourage you to take some special time out with the Lord, waiting on Him and rising up to get heavenly perspective. (Is.40:29-31)

Ask the Holy Spirit to put His spotlight on the things that you subconsciously stress about in the deepest layers of your heart, allowing pile-ups which will deplete you of energy and focus.  Now bring it into the light and intentionally deal with it!

RELEASE AND BREATHE!

Release these issues one by one to the Lord (MATT.11:28-30/PHIL.4:6) breathing deep into the Spirit – into the provision of His grace, His wisdom, His provision, His blessing and whatever else you need, which are all supplied in Christ Jesus.

You will be replenished, receiving His perfect peace in the midst of any storm and your joy will be full in Him.

RE-FOCUS

Remember, where the eye goes, the mind follows.  Take every thought captive in obedience to the Lord and turn your eyes upon Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith (Heb.12:1-3), taking every thought captive in obedience to the Lord.  Thank Him for working out all the details of your life and choose to rejoice in His goodness and grace.

RENEW YOUR VISION & PURPOSE

Simply get your vision before your eyes again and keep viewing your life form above, from His viewpoint and counsel, deliberately speaking His Word into your situations with prophetic declarations, knowing that your mouth determines the outcome! (Prov.18:21)

ENJOYING THE FREE GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT

Now you will be on a free glide on the wind streams of the Spirit (not flapping your wings in anxiousness), but living from above the static, releasing God’s will and His Word into the earth for His glory!   Enjoy the glide in His Presence!

The Lion of Judah is Roaring

images

Recently in a worship meeting I had a vision of a man who was sitting at a desk, writing. Suddenly I was seeing through his eyes what he was recording and found myself in a place with many many archways. As I looked up I saw the Lion of Judah coming towards me in all His majesty. As He reached me, I stepped right into His mouth. I was now on the inside of Him (as one with Him) as He was prowling through these archways on the lookout for sounds that our adversary, the devil has released – the one who seems as a roaring lion. The Lion of Judah was Continue reading “The Lion of Judah is Roaring”

Prayer Directives for 21 day Consecration

Praying man

Hi Everyone,

The fact that you are reading this, is because the Holy Spirit has drawn you to set yourself apart for 21 days for a fresh consecration in order to be empowered in the glory with a double portion. Why 21 days? Because it is proven to bring breakthrough (as with Daniel).

You can choose to start at any time, with as much fasting as possible – even if it is for 10 days, 7 days, 3 days or even for one day at a time in the middle of this period of 21 days. Continue reading “Prayer Directives for 21 day Consecration”

“Seer” Anointing

The “Seer” Anointing – 1

 

Photo: The “Seer” Anointing – 1</p>
<p>Currently there is much emphasis on the eye and the visionary aspects in the prophetic stream and I have been led to discuss various kinds of visions and dreams in the following weeks.</p>
<p>The year 2014 is numerically the year 5774 in the Hebrew calendar, known as Ayin Dalet. Ayin refers to vision and Dalet to an open door.<br />
(see previous post on April 10). Since the beginning of this Hebraic Year there is a definite increase in visionary experiences, because we are in a time frame in which God wants to take us into higher realms of revelation and visitation.</p>
<p>We have both physical eyes and the eyes of our heart by which we “see” into the spiritual realm and understand spiritual truth.</p>
<p>To increase your ability to “see” into the spirit realm, I would recommend that you pray the prayer in Eph.1:17-20 on a regular basis. Be expectant to “see” what God is saying, because visions could also be called visible Word. God “speaks” to us through what He shows us.</p>
<p>As we are positioning ourselves to see more in the spirit, it is important to keep our natural eyes guarded from images of the world that are fleshly, violent and unclean. The heart is like a photographic plate, recording the images we see and as we want to behold the glory of the Lord, we need to fix our eyes on things above, not on the earth. (Col.3:3) </p>
<p>Most of us have had a moment where we said, “Oh now I see what you are saying”. It is like the light that comes on in a dark room, so the light of revelation will lit up your candle on the inside and understanding will come on a spiritual truth and you will receive insight on something that you couldn’t understand before. That is an apokalupsis-type experience.<br />
When you pray in the Spirit while you read your Bible, this will happen regularly.</p>
<p>Get yourself a new journal and start writing down what God is showing you and mark it as a dream, vision or revelation. You will stand surprised at how He “talks” to you.</p>
<p>Before you go to bed, ask the Lord to speak to you in your dreams. It is for everyone who asks and believes that he will receive.</p>
<p>King James 2000 Bible<br />
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.” Acts 2:17</p>
<p>Look at what is going on before the prophecies, dreams and visions: There is an outpouring of the Spirit. If we look at the instances in the Bible when prophets had visions and visitations, it is coupled with “being in the spirit” (like the Apostle John on Patmos) or in solitude (Moses and the burning bush) or in prayer (Daniel). </p>
<p>Therefore, if you desire increase in this area, do likewise, praying much in the Spirit, setting yourself apart in devotion and worship.</p>
<p>Prayer: Father of glory, I pray that You would give me the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ. Open the eyes of my heart, so that I can see into the spirit realm what You want to show me. Dreams, visions, revelations and visitations are part of my inheritance in Christ and I trust You to enlarge my ability to see in the seer realm and to give me the wisdom and understanding to apply it rightly for Your glory – in Jesus’ Name. Amen. </p>
