Unicorns

What we can learn from the unicorn?

Some people claim unicorns existed and some people don’t. I thought that I would go back to the bible to see what it says if anything about them. The Bible refers to the unicorn in the context of well-known animals, such as, dogs, lambs, and calves (Job 39:9–12).

Job 39:9–12 says that the unicorn had great strength, “whose strength is great”. The Bible also describes unicorns skipping like calves (Psalm 29:6), traveling like bullocks, and bleeding when they die (Isaiah 34:7).

Whether you believe unicorns existed or not, whether they are a natural animal or have only ever been a spiritual animal that exists in heaven and in heavenly realms we can still learn something from them.

The unicorn is a symbol of strength. As Christians we are called to be full of strength in our spirits (by feeding on God’s word and listening to His voice). We are also called to be full of strength in our minds by taking in good things, by speaking life. We are also called to look after our physical bodies, feeding them with healthy food and good water.

I also like the reference to ‘unicorns skipping like calves’. It shows that not only do they have strength but they are not afraid to act young and full of life. Skipping is associated with joy and youthfulness. I know I want to be like that until the day I die. I want to have that joy and youthfulness because I am secure in my destiny and future in Christ and I want it to be contagious.

The bullock, signifies the good of innocence and of charity in the external or natural man. They travel with stamina and work in ploughing or hard labour. They are steady and continue with endurance which is why farmers used them for these jobs. We need to be like that and stop giving up all the time, we need to hold our heads steady and walk slowly towards the horizon.

Finally it says that ‘unicorns bleed’. This means that as humans we will bleed, we will feel pain, our bodies are not invincible and one day we will die. We need to remember this every day. This doesn’t mean that we fear death but rather that we are conscious of it and thus know that we need to make use of every moment that God gives us before this time.  In our culture we deny death, we ignore it, we put it aside and I feel that this could be reflected in the many pensioners left to die in old people’s homes merely because we don’t want to deal with death. Death is painful but it can also be beautiful because it means we are stepping out of this stunted and rather poor reality and moving into the greater and true fulfilling reality of heaven.

I believe that whether you believe unicorns existed I am sure you will agree that they are beautiful. They are often associated with rainbows, flying, heavenly places and mystical realms. They are beautiful because they are different and out of this world. We need to be the same. We need to stand out and be unique reflecting the light and glory of heaven itself. So next time you see a unicorn think about what they represent and believe that you are also beautiful, mystical,  full of life and ready to explode with the glory of God.

God bless

No More Grey

I recently saw an article titled “Breaking News the church of satan has finally been opened in America” dated beginning of 2016. The article says that they hope “that it will motivate other satanists to come out from the shadows…”. I thought it was curious to say the least so I read a little further into it. They have, and with much careful consideration I will add, painted a very rosy picture and to anyone lacking discernment they may very well be persuaded to join.

In the article it states that, “We worship the Complete Self and we exalt in forbidden knowledge and the paths to power,”. This is a stark contrast to what the Jesus said we should do “deny yourselves and follow me” (Matthew 16:24 NIV). I found that it was thought provoking to have been opened in 2016 right at the time when we are experiencing a spiritual shift in the atmosphere it makes sense that the devil would cough up something counterfeit. It also made me wonder today as I was looking around and seeing how much subtle darkness there is around us.

It was world book day today and a very large percentage of children decided to dress up as Harry Potter characters. You might say this is harmless fun just like Halloween but I beg to differ. I do think that witchcraft and in general anything supernatural is becoming more mainstream after being hidden away for years and perhaps this is no coincidence. (I am not talking just about religion here). As a mother my initial reaction would be to hide my son away, to try and protect him from the darkness and to shut my doors and close my windows. I don’t believe that this will do anything but allow the darkness to breed. You see darkness can only spread if it’s allowed to and if it has no light to stop it then it will continue knocking down everything in its path and cloaking it with a suffocating blanket of false comfort and belonging. If we are hidden inside our houses eventually the darkness will find a way in and even if it doesn’t you have not spread the light any further than your door frame and that is a very small flame indeed.

Nevertheless, while it is indeed important to protect our children the bible actually tells us that God is our ultimate protector and the bible instructs us “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Psalm 22:6 NIV). This actually doesn’t mean shutting them away but rather pointing out the dangers, explaining the truth to them and showing them their purpose in all of this. Yes we need to be careful and there are sometimes people who you know are not best to have around your children. However, my son does know about angels, he knows that God is bigger than the power of any witch but he also knows God loves them and wants a relationship with them. I’ve heard him telling his friends casually about heaven and sometimes he prays with all his heart about things that completely amaze me. He is only 5 and I hope and pray his faith continues to grow.

This brings me back to the article I saw. I believe it’s significant because in the future if we do not declare and pray we will see a great many people and among them children joining this ‘church of satan’. Just like Harry Potter has become very hip and cool among kids it may even become popular to make real spells in the future. Evil will not be made to look bad. The devil is not that stupid.

However, I have seen it prophesied that another generation will rise up from the dusty dry ground and speak life like never before, they will  do miracles unheard of and they will walk in great power and authority bringing light and truth wherever you go. They will literally blind the darkness.

Our children are part of this next generation. In their generation unlike ours there will be no middle ground, no grey areas. There will either be black or white. Make sure your son or daughter knows the truth. They are never too young for the truth. It’s time for us to wake up as a generation of purpose driven parents to guide the next generation so they in turn can guide those that follow.

Now it’s not the end of the world it’s only the start of something bigger, there will be spiritual forces battling one another and we may even see them with our natural eyes but God is ultimately going to have the last word. A new era has been birthed on God’s timeline so arise ye who were created for this time of “The Kingdom Age”.

What is a Heavenian?

                                                       What is a Heavenian?

The term is so new in fact it’s not even in a dictionary yet! It’s very simple: A Heavenian is someone who lives out heaven culture.

                                                         What is Heaven culture?

Heaven culture is living out the culture of Heaven here on earth. Let’s take a look at the age old prayer named ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ which was first prayed by Jesus when he walked on the earth. He prayed “Our Father who art in Heaven hallowed be thy name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.

So Heaven is a place where God’s will and only God’s will is done, it’s a holy place. Perhaps in your head you see clouds with little angels with harps, of God sitting on a throne with a long white beard while people just spend all of eternity bowed down before him. While I am certain that we will spend time bowing down before Him our worship won’t just consist of bowing and singing praises. Here are some different aspects of heaven culture:

  • In Heaven people don’t pray. They declare. They declare over those who live with them and over those coming after them. You in the same way have the power to declare over your children, over your future generations, over those not born.
  • In Heaven people use their gifts all the time. The church spends too long and hard trying to work out what people’s spiritual gifts might be. They try and overcomplicate things and miss the mark. The world has no problem using their gifts. Why do you think people flock around great singers, great sports players and great actors? It’s because they have something, something planted in them before the beginning of time and they’re using it. Heaven is waiting for us to use our gifts*.
  • In Heaven people walk in divine health. One of the main reasons for this is that their soul is in health “… I pray that in all respectsyou may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers” 3 John 1:2 (KJV). This means that they have loosened any unholy and unhelpful soul ties. It also means that they are careful about what they put into their soul and only fill it with positive and heavenly things, For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks”  Luke 6:45 (KJV).
  • In Heaven everyone loves one another. It’s impossible not too. They are so thankful and blessed to be there and there is not an ounce of hatred or resentment. However, this doesn’t mean that people are all the same but rather they love each other and celebrate their differences and are all bound together in their love for God.

God bless you all!

 

*You might say, “I don’t know my gift”. What is that thing that you love? What is that that thing that you would do all day if you could. That’s your gift.” You might have more than one and God will hold us accountable if we don’t use our gifts. We need to use them because he has given them to us and they are irrevocable, regardless of salvation. However, what happens if someone who is saved and has the Holy Spirit living in them starts to use their gifts? Let’s take a look at the past. Florence Nightingale had a gift. She used it to change the world. Jesus himself had the gift of carpentry. King David loved to sing and William Wilberforce stopped the slave trade. Let’s all use our gifts freely and compassionately doing what we were made to do but for Him.

Kingdom Age Church

The church of the Kingdom Age won’t look much like church today. Here are some ways that it will be different.

  • It will be messy. I often think of my son and how dirty and messy he gets when playing outside or with paints yet at the same time I remember his look of pure joy when he’s realised he can get as messy as he wants and he enjoys himself even more. Church will be a little bit like that. It’s going to be a place where people are going to be able to ‘be’ who God created them to be.
  • It will be filled with messy people or people who are labelled as ‘bad people’. For this reason there will be a big split in the church because many people with a religious mind-set won’t be able to accept this. This comes from the same spirit that the Pharisees were under. It is a spirit that says ‘I am better than you. Salvation is for me but not for them. They’re not the right kind of person’. I am afraid we cannot pick and choose. Yes we do need to repent but true repentance is never not messy.
  • Church may not be in a church. John Wesley was a great preacher from the 18th He preached in the fields, on the highlands and was persecuted greatly for his faith. He reached thousands of messy people. He wasn’t accepted by the church.
  • It will be creative and fun. I don’t know about you but I don’t always think of the word ‘fun’ when I think of ‘church’. Heaven is really fun so guess what something is going to change.
  • Jesus will be there in the midst of this new church. For many churches who decide to continue with blind religion Jesus may never appear there but for those who are following the Father’s heart He will be very much in the midst. God’s presence will be tangible and He will touch all who enter in.

“Jesus at the center of it all
Jesus at the center of it all
From beginning to the end
It will always be, it’s always been You
Jesus, Jesus”

Heaven Culture

Did you know in heaven they have roller coasters?

Yes you heard me. Its time to get out of our box, our comfortable little box full of all the comfortable and cosy little things we are used to. I am not talking about a literal box but rather the box that  is the limited space that we think in. I rather like the quote from a prophetess who says “it’s time to take your natural mind out and replace it with your spiritual mind”. This is important because before we are to understand the supernatural and the spiritual things of this realm and the next we need to say “goodbye” or “adios” to our fixed ideas and open our eyes to the fact that the most real and exciting things cannot be placed inside a box.

In heaven there is a roller coaster called The Rush. It is higher than any roller coaster we can imagine on earth. In fact it goes miles up and the capsules leap off the roller coaster before landing back on it and whizzing down and then up to the next loop. I know I want to live my life like that here. I don’t want to wait until I die.

In heaven people see music. Well I know that there is a condition called Lexical-gustatory synesthesia which is where certain colours, emotions and more commonly sounds cause these people to experience taste and smell. In heaven be prepared to have your senses crossed over, mixed up and being entirely topsy turvy as we know it. In this busy world sometimes I close my eyes and try and imagine what this would be like.

In heaven everything is full of light including the food. I can’t imagine weight gain is an issue here or greed for that matter. God is our light, in fact it was one of the first things he created.  One day soon people are going to use light to paint and do many other things here on the earth. I just can’t wait.

But why wait. Let’s all start by taking out our natural minds and taking a leap into the unknown. I bet you never knew that heaven was a lot more fun than a few angels sitting on a cloud and perhaps very soon people will dare to live the unknown here on earth bringing to life the very words Jesus spoke, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”.

Join me in this prayer and let’s live in expectation.

Shaking

As I was praying the other day and spending time with God I saw a picture:

I saw the island (the UK) being shaken in an earthquake from side to side. It was being rocked with force. This forced people who were otherwise stationary to have no other option but to move. They resisted until they could not resist for any longer and then they fell down.

At the same moment I saw ancient wells. The water inside was shaking with ripples. The wells were made of stone and did not shake themselves but the water did as a result of the earthquake.

Then finally I saw seeds being planted over the land. I heard “Now its the time to sow seeds”.

What this means for us:

Firstly we should be encouraged, encouraged that God is moving (he is not about to move. He is already moving) 2016 saw a great change in the spiritual atmosphere here and in other places too. The earthquake represents a spiritual quake that is going to shake us from the inside out. It is something that will change us as individuals and then spread across the nation to affect communities, towns and even whole cities (just like in the 19th century for example in certain cities). This won’t be every city, nor every community but it will be hard to escape God’s love and power as it comes in greater waves. However, he will always give us the choice.

Secondly, I believe the wells represent the spiritual foundation of long ago, places and people of great wonder who lived under the same spirit which is now being revived. The ancient spirit that was here before the world began. Worship is the key. Worship changes the atmosphere. Instead of playing the radio play worship music that points to Him. Keep it playing at all times in the background. See how this will change the atmosphere of your house, of your neighbourhood, of your town and city.

Finally we need to start changing ourselves first but then as a result we can also impact our communities and cities just as people like John Wesley, William Wilberforce and Florence Nightingale did. Believe me when I say they are watching us because when perhaps you really wanted to meet someone like them they’ve been waiting for years to meet you and can’t wait to meet you one day in heaven.

 

 

 

This Christmas is different

I wanted to write a short post about my feelings about Christmas this year. This year has been a significant year for many reasons. I feel that without a doubt something has changed in the atmosphere. I believe that Christmas is different this year.

  1. There seems to be more lights around from every street corner, every house. I am not talking about giant flashing santas or blow up snowmen but about lights, beautiful, extravagant lights on every street corner and every town square. My view of the valley shows the most beautiful lights shining the joy of Christmas, whether the people in those houses believe the story of Christmas doesn’t matter as they are a part of it.
  2. There are prophetic signs appearing left right and centre. For example, a street in London put up the most beautiful flashing peacock lights. The peacock was chosen by God to reflect the living creatures who live in the throne room of heaven and now it’s all over London. Unicorns and stars are everywhere in fact you cannot escape them. Where before there were many fairies on trees they have now been replaced with stars. Angels are appearing in people’s windows and in the clouds and I believe in the streets even if we can’t see them.
  3. There is a real sense of community. People are smiling at strangers like never before. People are being truly generous in their giving and kindness. There seems to be a real extent of grace this Christmas. People seem to have made the church and church services a real centre part of their Christmas preparations like I’ve never seen. Where carol services had only a few people this year the churches are full up with ordinary people who maybe want that little bit of hope and joy to add to their busy life.
  4. Finally, there is a sense that Christmas is not only about ‘the baby Jesus’ but about the Father, the Holy Spirit and the Son as one. Christmas happened because Jesus needed to show us the way to the Father and when we arrive in heaven the first thing he will do is to lead up to the throne room to meet Him. Christmas is not just about ‘baby Jesus’ but about so much more than that. St Nicholas knew this and his joy and generosity exploded out as a result. I have also seen more people interested in the true story behind St Nicholas this year like never before.

God is moving here in the UK. Perhaps it’s not as obvious yet as it was in the Great Awakenings but it WILL be. I believe though that 2017 WILL be an even greater year on a national, international, local and personal level. God is about to do great things in your life so don’t miss it!:)

Kingdom Come

In order to gain revelation and wisdom on the future of God’s kingdom in the UK and in the world we need to do a number of things.

  • We first and fore mostly need to spend time with God. God reveals what he wants to especially to those who are found on their knees in the secret place, to those who sacrifice their lives daily for Him and for those who are living holy lives. This could be on your knees in your room in the silence, whilst you are listening to anointed worship music or maybe even when you are just washing the dishes. Let’s be alert and keep our Father in our every thought. We need to seek Him for His purpose for England and for the world.
  • We need to be connecting with people of light. After Brexit I have really been awakened in the spirit and have been connected to different people, people I never imagined I would be, new people, old acquaintances, and even those in other countries. These are not friendships I pushed for but rather supernatural occurrences which I believe were ordained by God. For example, God has given me some beautiful and blessed friendships from America. They have taught me so much, have exposed me to the truth and left me hungry for more. These people can often be the jigsaw pieces in the puzzle.
  • We need to take a look at the past. This does not mean that the future will be the same as the past but rather that it can give us some great insights into God’s heart. It can open our eyes to see the true failures of man and how to avoid them. For example looking at the Great Awakening and what triggered it. Looking at these “Great men and women of God” and seeing what it was exactly that made them “Great” and what we can take from that. Try reading: God’s Heart For A Dying Land by Michael Marce
  • This point ties into my third point but we need to also look at the geography of the land. We need to look for where the ancient wells are, which areas were saturated with revival and the spirit of the Living God. I believe that there are areas that are portals into the heavenly realms. Sadly, many have for decades been taken by the enemy but it’s time for us to take them back for God and to release the Host into them to battle the darkness. Try looking at www.ukwells.org this is a good website which shows all the different geographical regions of the UK.

I will post more on my next two blogs about point 3 and 4.

God bless you and thank you for sharing my post on Richard’s Watch. www.richards-watch.org which is a great website to get insight and revelation. Let’s connect and build one another up!!

God bless you all and may the Host be with you! 🙂

The Kingdom Age

How to Live in the Kingdom Age

There is much more to life! I’ve been listening to things and reading things recently. I have been very encouraged because there is one thing that seems to be coming up and that is that we are stepping into a NEW ERA. We are on a new timeline. We need to be ready for the changes that are coming in the near future on this earth. We have been living too long in a world where all we live by is what we see. We are now in a new spiritual age! I am excited! This age is called the kingdom age!!! Here are some common themes to help you step into this era…because it will happen whether or not we want it to because God has a plan.

  1. Let go of your life and give it to God

God has a plan. He has a wonderful purpose, an assignment for you. You cannot do it unless you let go of your life and give it to him. Give up your ideas. Give up your opinions. Pour out your life and lay it at Jesus’ feet.

2. Live your life through love

We have been fighting against the flesh. We need to fight against powers and principalities (aka spiritual things). We do NOT fight people. We do NOT hate people. We do NOT gossip or hurt people. If someone is causing a problem pray for them and LOVE them.

3.  Live holy.

Live a holy life (oh that’s so boring though right!?) No not at all. Being holy is wonderful and fun because you know that evil has no power in you. You know that evil cannot touch you. You know that you are part of something bigger than what you can see. Stay away from sin! If you could see everything in the supernatural that happens when you sin then you really wouldn’t.

Listen to these clips from people who have had encounters with God and share them with the world. I hope you are encouraged.
