I can only praise God for His love and mercy that is new each morning! But I also realize more than ever we have to stay in His cloud of grace by day and under the blazing Holy fire at night.
Most of the time, our biggest problem is in our old mindset. We want to live in a new Kingdom as a new creation but think and make decisions with an old mind. God knew we wouldn’t be able to change our mindset on our own, and that is why He gave us the Holy Spirit. HE WILL ENLIGHTEN YOUR MIND SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. He will not only enlighten your mind but will awaken your spirit. This was the new covenant we inherited through Jesus; “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their minds, even upon their innermost thoughts and understanding and engrave them upon their hearts and I will be their God and they will be My people.” (Hebrews 8:10)
I spoke at the Aula at University of Pretoria on Frigday night and I could see how many broken hearts cried out to God, and then Holy Spirit did more than I could dream for. Thank you Jesus for the 1000 people that bent their knees in worship just to bow down and adore you. I could hear how the Spirit and the bride say “Come Lord Jesus, come!”
Blessed are those who long for God and follow hard after Him. To these He will no longer hide Himself but their eyes will behold His countenance. Behold my Jesus, gaze upon Him. The closer you come to Him the more you become like Him – you will become a mirror through which many will come to see Jesus reflected in you. You will just need to lift your hand, and His power will follow.
I have learnt to watch and wait expectantly for the Lord.
Jesus spoke to me about the impurity of His Bride. Guard your heart and let nothing impure enter into it! “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23 (Amplified) My Bride does not persist in prayer and therefore never trains herself to overcome the tactics of the enemy.
Jesus wants His Bride to mature and grow into the fullness of what she was destined to be. I believe many prayers have been granted in heaven but never received on earth because of the impatience of our hearts and the weakness of our faith and perseverance. We become weary and are intimidated by the enemy and just before the victory we give up to fight. The Word declares we shall attain the promises of God by faith and patience! Just like Daniel we have to keep on pressing in – if you don’t press in you will lose out on the first hand revelations and heavenly treasures.
Luke 11 vs 9: Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given to you. Seek and keep on seeking and you shall find. Knock and keep on knocking, and the door shall be opened to you.
There is a spiritual battlefield constantly going on here on earth and you need to fight to get your ground back what the enemy has stolen from you. Nobody is going to do it for you – this is your battle – get up and fight!
“Therefore put on God’s complete armour, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day of danger and having done all the crisis demands, to stand firmly in your place.” Ephesians 6:13
Fight for each part of the ground you inherited as a son of God. You need to pray! Prayer and worship and the Word of God is your weapons, use them! If you could only realize the power of prayer. People don’t pray effectively because of a lack of faith in God’s abilities and doubting the integrity of the Word of God. A pure heart combined with the God kind of faith is unbeatable. Examine yourself today...your motives, your prayer closet, your faith, your words, your perseverance. Have you given up, or are you still fighting the good fight of faith? Are you patient in your perseverance? Is your faith fully in God?
Just trust God, because He says who He says He!
This week was a busy week, constantly writing our new book because we are working against a deadline.
At night while writing I have the most wonderful encounters with God. Holy Spirit will just take me away for a while and show me things and bringing me back refreshed afterwards. Then I can sit down and work for another two hours.
He showed me how His bride is faking purity and that it will not be able to stand in His presence because it is not solid. Purity my child comes by being obedient in the smallest little thing I ask you to do, or to surrender. The more you lay down, the more obedient and dependant you become and the deeper you can go into my presence.
After many prayers, we are in the process of upgrading our website. We realize that the website is a tool to get the message out to the world and want our light to shine brightly on cyber space which is one of the best and easiest ways of communication these days. It was a very expensive exercise, but we trusted God all the way and He faithfully provided. Thank you to everyone that listened to God’s voice and sowed into the ministry to make this dream possible!
We are also branching out in many new directions, one of them being our new book that we are currently working very hard on. We have decided to keep all aspects of the writing, translation and designing as “in-house” as possible and those donations made will also be going to the funding of the computer programmes we need to facilitate the writing and designing process.
I know the hour we are in – and know the amount of work that needs to be done.
If there is anyone who has access to spare Bibles of any African language or English, we would appreciate it very much if you could send them to us. Thank you that we can have the liberty to express our needs to you.
Aldo is going to start ministering on Friday afternoons in very poor areas with great needs. He believes the only need a person has is for Jesus. I told him I was going to get Bibles for these outreaches and he said “Yes Mom, but first they need Jesus. I have to go and serve them. Jesus served Mom. He asked me to go and serve.”
All he wants to do is pray for the kids and play with them.
This is the beginning of his ministry – praise God – and praise God for you who are part of this ministry in Jesus.
In Him we have our being.
