A Holy Nation to the Lord
This is the hour that God wants to use His children as never before! This invitation is for everyone - you and me.
“I have taken of the Spirit which is in My Son and I have put it upon you my child - the same Holy Spirit that rested on Him rests on you now. Purify yourselves. I will put Holy words in the mouths of my children and you will prophesy. I gave the Law to Moses and the generations of the past, but the fullness to My Son. Walk in that fullness.
Today you all stand as ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven, crying out to mankind on My behalf. You will receive the same great measure of love and power that My Son Yeshua walked in if you seek it. Yes, not only do I give you words of life, but I entrust all things into your hands...even to understand My Kingdom.
Go out and live in My Kingdom, go out and do My will. Please do not judge people that walk in Kingdom liberty. As you do My will and walk in my ways you will be sustained. Anything else will slowly kill you day by day.
My child stay close to Me, stay close!
Are you willing to surrender more?
Are you willing to repent more?
You have to hate sin the way I hate sin. You have to hate it because of your love for Me. Even though you are tempted, choose to stay holy. Sin brought to fullness leads to death. Keep yourself unspotted – believe Me my child, it is for your ultimate good. I hate sin because I know what it does to My children. It destroys lives – and I want you to have a life of abundance!”
Father, I have such a regard for Your ways and love for You.
Please give me a greater hatred for sin and teach me wisdom, which is to reverently and worshipfully fear the Lord.
It is your love for ME my child , and your understanding of who I am, and My nature, My character, My holiness that will keep you away from the world and it’s traps. Seek My light! If you seek – you will find, and you will become the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
God is looking for a holy nation that He can call His own. Yes, holy! The first message prior to the first coming of Jesus was REPENTANCE. And the message to the church of today is to prepare the way for the Lord. (Luke 3:4 & Isaiah 40:3-4)
The word of God is so clear on this matter - without holiness we will not see God. (Heb 12:14)
Without faith it is impossible to please God – but without holiness, it is impossible even to see God.
I just returned from a week ministering in Paarl and Cape Town in South Africa. I saw how the church was truly hungry for more of God and to know Him. Do you know God? I mean know Him…His character, His power, His love?
THIS IS MY DESIRE – TO KNOW YOU MORE!
As His spirit entered the house (church) people fell down and experienced the fullness of God every night. There was a flowing river from heaven running through the church and the people that stepped into the river were down for a long time - their life’s changed as God operated deep in their hearts. Who is this God? He is the great I AM. He is the only living God. He is Almighty. He is Sovereign. He is the same yesterday, today and forever!
There is a mantle from heaven hanging over our country South-Africa! It is time we cloak our self with holiness, purity and love and start living in God’s Kingdom!
I received the most beautiful letter written by a young girl from the school in Paarl we visited. As the anointing flowed at the event the entire school was down on their faces, praying out-loud for their town…and God open the heavens. (2 Chron. 7:14) She later came to church too to experience more of what she tasted. Full of joy she told her friends and parents of what she experienced at the events but to her great shock they asked her how much the lady paid the people in church to fall down?
Lord, please have mercy on them. God’s Kingdom is not words – but power. We are just not used to His power, because for too long we have neither been hot nor cold – just like the church of Laodicea. (Rev. 3:14-16)
My family flew in to spend the weekend with me in Cape Town and when they arrived I immediately picked up that something was wrong with Aldo. As I monitored his movements I could see that his balance was off and he was emotionally tired and irritated. Eventually I told him to write to me and explain what is going on. “Mommy, Jesus says I have an infection in my head - I need antibiotics.”
When I took a look at the scar on his head under his hair, I could see a huge infection brewing. We took him to the same hospital he stayed in during December and he was taken up for the night to treat the infection. His wonderful dad stayed with him during the night. On Sunday (the following day) I spoke at a church in Rowsenville. On my way to the church God spoke to me and said; “Retha, in the same way you monitored Aldo and kept an eye on his movements and actions to detect when something is wrong – so I do so with My children. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose hearts are blameless toward Him. (2 Chron. 16:9) I want you my child to rest in this revelation for everything in your life. My Holy Spirit ín you will show you everything you need to know. Just be alert, rest in Me, focus and receive what I show you”
My other son Josh had been having some problems with his tummy during the weekend and also came to the front for healing prayer during the service. Under the anointing and by the hand of God he was healed and so all of us in our own unique way learn to trust God for everything about our lives.
Once again my family and I tasted and saw that God is good. After Aldo’s treatment the infection cleared up and the fluid could once again be drained by his shunt and little Josh was back to his old self after the service.
God, His Holy Spirit will show you the detail of the problem and how to overcome it. If He can do it for Aldo – He will do it for you and me! After the service on Sunday my family and I had a lovely meal at Stellenbosch and flew home that night.
As I was lying in my bed after a very long and hard week – praising God for His faithfulness – I prayed, Lord I want to hear you like Aldo hears you! “Retha, you don’t need great ears, but rather understanding of who I am”
Monday morning Aldo was back in school.
God is looking for clean vessels; He is looking for a clean church without spot or blemish. I counsel you – go and buy from the Lord gold refined by fire that you may be truly wealthy, white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes that you may see. (Rev. 3: 18)
Repent and go in, deeper into His Fullness.
Keep your faith. Retha
