Tent of Meeting III

Your arms are big enough for me.

Psalm 94

Reliance on His Spirit is key. Our main issue is that we don’t allow the Holy Spirit to move. The Holy Spirit has to be the midst of all we do. After all it is His Spirit in us.

‘Mighty is Your name, Strong is Your right arm, You are the victorious one, Rider on the white horse, His name is faithful and true.

We are nothing without His Spirit. Everything is through Him and to Him. He honours obedience and faith, but ultimately everything is by His strong arm

Road Less Travelled: What God reveals in the times of the tent of meeting, are paving stones on the road less travelled. Some revelations are big paving stones, some are edging stones. God will use this to speak to people.

A moment in God. We pray for a Holy moment, in God, a moment where He completely overwhelms us with His truth and the Truth of who He is and who we are in Him. It’s a lights on moment in our life. We see through His Eyes, think with His mind and love with His heart. It changes us forever. It’s a changed forever moment.

John 21. – They were counted worthy to lead Peter around.

What God calls us to He has declared worthy. Not because of us, but because of Himself. We operate in His strength and with His Spirit.

He has done everything. Come in faith and obedience.

Tent of Meeting II

Vision:

There is a man who is sweeping a beautiful banqueting hall. The master says do not rush this sweeping process. As you worship God sweeps. There are many things that God needs to sweep out. He does this as you worship. He does this to prepare for the banquet.

 

Psalm 89v5-19

ll heaven will praise your great wonders, Lord;

myriads of angels will praise you for your faithfulness.

6 For who in all of heaven can compare with the Lord?

What mightiest angel is anything like the Lord?

7 The highest angelic powers stand in awe of God.

He is far more awesome than all who surround his throne.

8 O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies!

Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O Lord?

You are entirely faithful.

9 You rule the oceans.

You subdue their storm-tossed waves.

10 You crushed the great sea monster.[b]

You scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are yours, and the earth is yours;

everything in the world is yours—you created it all.

12 You created north and south.

Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon praise your name.

13 Powerful is your arm!

Strong is your hand!

Your right hand is lifted high in glorious strength.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne.

Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.

15 Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship,

for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.

16 They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation.

They exult in your righteousness.

17 You are their glorious strength.

It pleases you to make us strong.

18 Yes, our protection comes from the Lord,

and he, the Holy One of Israel, has given us our king.

19 Long ago you spoke in a vision to your faithful people.

You said, “I have raised up a warrior.

I have selected him from the common people to be king.

 

Church arise, become His pure and spotless bride.

Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen on you.

(Isaiah 60v1)

 

The musicians need to see God for who He is, experience God for who He is so that they may declare Him in Spirit and in Truth

(who is God? His names declare His attributes)

EL, ELOAH: God “mighty, strong, prominent” (Nehemiah 9:17; Psalm 139:19) – etymologically, El appears to mean “power,” as in “I have the power to harm you” (Genesis 31:29). El is associated with other qualities, such as integrity (Numbers 23:19), jealousy (Deuteronomy 5:9), and compassion (Nehemiah 9:31), but the root idea of “might” remains.

 

ELOHIM: God “Creator, Mighty and Strong” (Genesis 17:7; Jeremiah 31:33) – the plural form of Eloah, which accommodates the doctrine of the Trinity. From the Bible’s first sentence, the superlative nature of God’s power is evident as God (Elohim) speaks the world into existence (Genesis 1:1).

 

EL SHADDAI: “God Almighty,” “The Mighty One of Jacob” (Genesis 49:24; Psalm 132:2,5) – speaks to God’s ultimate power over all.

 

ADONAI: “Lord” (Genesis 15:2; Judges 6:15) – used in place of YHWH, which was thought by the Jews to be too sacred to be uttered by sinful men. In the Old Testament, YHWH is more often used in God’s dealings with His people, while Adonai is used more when He deals with the Gentiles.

 

YHWH / YAHWEH / JEHOVAH: “LORD” (Deuteronomy 6:4; Daniel 9:14) – strictly speaking, the only proper name for God. Translated in English Bibles “LORD” (all capitals) to distinguish it from Adonai, “Lord.” The revelation of the name is first given to Moses “I Am who I Am” (Exodus 3:14). This name specifies an immediacy, a presence. Yahweh is present, accessible, near to those who call on Him for deliverance (Psalm 107:13), forgiveness (Psalm 25:11) and guidance (Psalm 31:3).

 

YAHWEH-JIREH: “The Lord Will Provide” (Genesis 22:14) – the name memorialized by Abraham when God provided the ram to be sacrificed in place of Isaac.

 

YAHWEH-RAPHA: “The Lord Who Heals” (Exodus 15:26) – “I am Jehovah who heals you” both in body and soul. In body, by preserving from and curing diseases, and in soul, by pardoning iniquities.

 

YAHWEH-NISSI: “The Lord Our Banner” (Exodus 17:15), where banner is understood to be a rallying place. This name commemorates the desert victory over the Amalekites in Exodus 17.

 

YAHWEH-M’KADDESH: “The Lord Who Sanctifies, Makes Holy” (Leviticus 20:8; Ezekiel 37:28) – God makes it clear that He alone, not the law, can cleanse His people and make them holy.

 

YAHWEH-SHALOM: “The Lord Our Peace” (Judges 6:24) – the name given by Gideon to the altar he built after the Angel of the Lord assured him he would not die as he thought he would after seeing Him.

 

YAHWEH-ELOHIM: “LORD God” (Genesis 2:4; Psalm 59:5) – a combination of God’s unique name YHWH and the generic “Lord,” signifying that He is the Lord of Lords.

 

YAHWEH-TSIDKENU: “The Lord Our Righteousness” (Jeremiah 33:16) – As with YHWH-M’Kaddesh, it is God alone who provides righteousness to man, ultimately in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who became sin for us “that we might become the Righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

 

YAHWEH-ROHI: “The Lord Our Shepherd” (Psalm 23:1) – After David pondered his relationship as a shepherd to his sheep, he realized that was exactly the relationship God had with him, and so he declares, “Yahweh-Rohi is my Shepherd. I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1).

 

YAHWEH-SHAMMAH: “The Lord Is There” (Ezekiel 48:35) – the name ascribed to Jerusalem and the Temple there, indicating that the once-departed glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 8—11) had returned (Ezekiel 44:1-4).

 

YAHWEH-SABAOTH: “The Lord of Hosts” (Isaiah 1:24; Psalm 46:7) – Hosts means “hordes,” both of angels and of men. He is Lord of the host of heaven and of the inhabitants of the earth, of Jews and Gentiles, of rich and poor, master and slave. The name is expressive of the majesty, power, and authority of God and shows that He is able to accomplish what He determines to do.

 

EL ELYON: “Most High” (Deuteronomy 26:19) – derived from the Hebrew root for “go up” or “ascend,” so the implication is of that which is the very highest. El Elyon denotes exaltation and speaks of absolute right to lordship.

 

EL ROI: “God of Seeing” (Genesis 16:13) – the name ascribed to God by Hagar, alone and desperate in the wilderness after being driven out by Sarah (Genesis 16:1-14). When Hagar met the Angel of the Lord, she realized she had seen God Himself in a theophany. She also realized that El Roi saw her in her distress and testified that He is a God who lives and sees all.

 

EL-OLAM: “Everlasting God” (Psalm 90:1-3) – God’s nature is without beginning or end, free from all constraints of time, and He contains within Himself the very cause of time itself. “From everlasting to everlasting, You are God.”

 

EL-GIBHOR: “Mighty God” (Isaiah 9:6) – the name describing the Messiah, Christ Jesus, in this prophetic portion of Isaiah. As a powerful and mighty warrior, the Messiah, the Mighty God, will accomplish the destruction of God’s enemies and rule with a rod of iron (Revelation 19:15).

The key is intimacy with Jesus. This is the key to everything in Him

 

Do not procrastinate in serving God!, rev 10v6, luke 14v16-21. If the bible says do it, don’t procrastinate by saying that you need to go ‘pray about it’ don’t use that as an excuse not to obey God.

Habbukak 2v3

This vision is for a future time.

It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled.

If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently,

for it will surely take place.

It will not be delayed.

 

Joshua 24v15

15 But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”

Revelation 10v6

6 He swore an oath in the name of the one who lives forever and ever, who created the heavens and everything in them, the earth and everything in it, and the sea and everything in it. He said, “There will be no more delay

Luke 14v16-21

16 Jesus replied with this story: “A man prepared a great feast and sent out many invitations. 17 When the banquet was ready, he sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come, the banquet is ready.’ 18 But they all began making excuses. One said, ‘I have just bought a field and must inspect it. Please excuse me.’ 19 Another said, ‘I have just bought five pairs of oxen, and I want to try them out. Please excuse me.’ 20 Another said, ‘I now have a wife, so I can’t come.’

21 “The servant returned and told his master what they had said. His master was furious and said, ‘Go quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and invite the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’

 

Lights in the darkness vision. That time is now. God will let Gold and Water flow from this 24 hour worship well. (John 5v4)

Gold – sanctification and holiness

Water – His Life

Faithful musicians in the well. God sends angels to stir the water. Gold and water flow.

Are the 12 wells places of declaration, are the 70 palm trees musicians?

Tent of Meeting I

To ascend the Hill of the Lord, we must have pure hearts and clean hands, our hearts must not be after idols and we must not lie.

Psalm 24

A pure heart is a heart like Gods heart. The only man who was said to have a heart after God was King David. (Acts 13v22) Even though he sinned greatly, his life had the fruit of a heart after God.

His fruit was Humilty, reverence, respect, trust, love devotion, recognition of the Lord, faithfulness, obedience and repentance

David had absolute faith in God

David loved the law of God (the Word was a delight to Him)

David was truly thankful to God

David was truly repentant when He sinned.

Love God is love. It is who He is

Clean hands. Avoidance of sin

Fearless obedience to follow His promise

El Roi. The God who see’s me. Hagar.

Tent of meeting Zero: Part II – Psalm 24

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
 The world and all its people belong to him.

There is nothing and no-one outside of Gods control. Everything is His, everybody is His. He created everybody and everything. He is in total control, with total ownership of EVERYTHING. Not everyone accepts His Lordship but it is the truth none the less.

For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas
    and built it on the ocean depths.

The work of establishing the Earth was Gods alone. No Big Bang, no other mediators. Through Gods sovereign hand He made the earth, and everything on it. it is a display of His mighty power. That’s why it’s His.

Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?

The psalmist has taken care to establish Gods power, might, all sufficiency and worthiness. So the psalmist asks who of us is even worthy to approach such an awesome, powerful God? A God who is Holy and powerful?

Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
    who do not worship idols
    and never tell lies.

The answer is a person with clean hands, a pure heart, doesn’t follow idols, or lie. Clean hands are whose fruit of their obedience to Gods word is evident, Pure hearts are hearts filled with love, faith, joy and repentance. Those who don’t follow idols make God their prize, their focus, and those who don’t lie always tell the truth.

They will receive the Lord’s blessing
    and have a right relationship with God their savior.

Living like this gains a promise, we will receive His blessing, and can come into His presence. Our relationship with God is then made right as we are in His presence.

Such people may seek you
    and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob.[a] Interlude

These are the people God desires as worshippers. Humble, loving, faith filled, God exalting worshippers.

Open up, ancient gates!
    Open up, ancient doors,
    and let the King of glory enter.

The psalmist asks that praise gate in heaven be open and God the King of Glory may enter. The worshippers worship, and the God the Father, the King of Glory comes.

Who is the King of glory?
    The Lord, strong and mighty;
    the Lord, invincible in battle.

The the psalmist asks a rhetorical question. Who is this King of Glory?
Again we declare the Lord strong and mighty. The God who made everything. Mighty in battle. He is invincible, unconquerable.

Open up, ancient gates!
    Open up, ancient doors,
    and let the King of glory enter.

Again the psalmist emplores the gates of a Heaven to open so God, the king of Glory may enter the midst of our worship.

Who is the King of glory?
    The Lord of Heaven’s Armies—
    he is the King of glory. Interlude

We state Gods power as the king of glory, lord of heavens Angel armies. Amazing glorious, perfect He is the King of Hlory worthy of worship and praise. It is Him we desire, it is Him we want in our lives.

Tent Of Meeting Zero: Part I

John 14v15-29

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 “If you love me, obey[d] my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[e] who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.[f]18 No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. 19 Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. 20 When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”

22 Judas (not Judas Iscariot, but the other disciple with that name) said to him, “Lord, why are you going to reveal yourself only to us and not to the world at large?”

23 Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them. 24 Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me. And remember, my words are not my own. What I am telling you is from the Father who sent me. 25 I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. 26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.

27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. 28 Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am. 29 I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you will believe.

This is how Jesus Himself defines how we show love to Him. OBEDIENCE. He then promises us a helper, THE HOLY SPIRIT. When we obey Jesus, we become more like Him. Every commandment that Jesus gives is good, righteous and there to make us more like Him, so that we may shine His light into the world.

The first and most ridiculous response from us is as follows: But it’s Grace, not works Yes. The Word says that our salvation is not based on works. Works does allow us to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Christs’ atoning sacrifice on Calvary is the only work of salvation. Works will not get you into heaven, but they are fruit of a life that loves God..ie. you cannot claim to love God if you do not obey Him

You see, obedience to God is a response to seeing His goodness. It is fruit that the Spirit of God is in us. God gave me a phrase a while ago. Fearless Obedience. I think it is a phrase that pleases God, I’ll tell you why if you will allow me to explain.

FEARLESS: When we are fearless, we have no regard for the consequences. I believe that when we are fearless, we have filled with faith that God is in control. Hebrews states that with out faith it is impossible to please God.

OBEDIENCE:  Doing what God commands because we love Him.

My belief is that fearless obedience may look reckless to the casual onlooker, but it is faith filled fear less, obedience. So to paraphrase God Pleasing Love.. Think about that for a moment.

Matthew 28:16-20New Living Translation (NLT)

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!

18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[a] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Jesus command to His disciples to teach those who they shared the Gospel with to obey His commandments. Not feel loved, or invite Jesus into their heart, but to OBEY all His commandments!

 

Why is obedience such an issue to us? Especially the western church? When FEARLESS OBEDIENCE is walking in God Pleasing Love towards the one who saved us.

Ok lets take a step back you may say. This sounds no different to other extreme religions. This isn’t healthy thinking. As we go through these posts moving forward I will explain why FEARLESS OBEDIENCE to Jesus is the most loving, kind and good thing we could do on this planet.

I emplore you to love the Lord,and live in FEARLESS OBEDIENCE to Him

Masters of your universe

Matthew 6v24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. (NLT)

Our hearts are being pulled at in many different directions, and often the fight for our soul boils down to selfishness and not some cosmic battle between good and evil. You see Jesus defeated sin and death on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:57), that battle is won.

The issue that is a huge stumbling stone to us today is the fact that we dont put God first, ie we serve another master except God.  In our fear that God is not all powerful and does not care for us, we give into the lie that that we need to

Matthew 6v33 Seek the Kingdom of God[d] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (NLT)

The problem with un-importance

The Message to the Church in Laodicea

14“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Laodicea. This is the message from the one who is the Amen—the faithful and true witness, the beginninge of God’s new creation:

15“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. 18So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. 19I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.

20“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. 21Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.

22“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

 

It is becoming more evident to me day, by day, week by week, and month by month that God is not important enough to us. The actions and thoughts that dominate our lives and our thoughts are not the ones of a people who are completely enamoured and awed by an awesome amazing majestic God.

To us the God who is everything, is not enough. Our sin and our rebellion look more pleasurable than the holiness and Glory of God. Our short sightedness and the fact that we don’t live with eternity on our minds makes us live in such a way that we don’t have any fear of God, and that the things of this world take precedent in all of our speech, actions and thoughts and deeds. God is not our all in all, and this leads to spiritual lukewarmness.

God says 15“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!’

God is not into our halfhearted response to His wholehearted sacrifice and plan for our redemption. It is time that we responded correctly. Nuclear holocaust, lack of money or things are not important. Our souls are at stake, peoples souls are at stake. The issues aren’t Palastine vs Israel, but sin, lust, greed and thinking about self more than Him.

 

I love the beauty and the simplicity of the solution that God offers us ‘Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends’

As God speaks and knocks on our heart we respond, we allow Him to be more important than the things society and sin tell us are important. We stop trying to be relevant and we start being people who shine the light and the truth of the Gospel into all areas of life. Until we allow God to be all important in our life, we’re wasting everybodies time.

Alternatives

How much longer is it going to take for us to believe God is who He says He is?

We’re like a poor starving family, who know where there is food to eat. Good nutrious, amazing free food, yet we don’t believe that it is actually there. We would rather starve, allow our family to starve, friends to starve, than believe that God is who He said He is, that His word is true and that He is for us.

Why are we constantly looking for alternatives to the perfection that is our God? The root of this is pride that we know better, fear that He is not for us, fear that we have got it wrong. I want to repent of this, Lord. I truly want to follow you with all my heart.

Lord I believe! Help my unbelief!

 

That when we ask in His name, in faith, he will give every good thing in Christ Jesus? (Phillipians 4v19 paraphrase)

And He answered them and said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me!” – Mark 9v19 NASB

And Jesus answered and said, “You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me.” = Matthew 17v17 NASB

And Jesus answered and said, “You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here.” – Luke 9v41 NASB

Here are some of His promises to us

2 Peter 1:4

And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

 

John 14New Living Translation (NLT)

Jesus, the Way to the Father

14 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.[a] If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[b] When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”

“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is.[c]From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”

Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”

Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me.11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.

12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 “If you love me, obey[d] my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[e] who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.[f]18 No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. 19 Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. 20 When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”

22 Judas (not Judas Iscariot, but the other disciple with that name) said to him, “Lord, why are you going to reveal yourself only to us and not to the world at large?”

23 Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them. 24 Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me. And remember, my words are not my own. What I am telling you is from the Father who sent me. 25 I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. 26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.

27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. 28 Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am. 29 I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you will believe.

30 “I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, 31 but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going.

The Chariots in the Heavenlies

The chariots in the heavenlies – 16 December 2012

I saw a great and brilliant light in Heaven, but couldn’t see past that into Heaven; something was going on there above the city. I heard a trumpet sound, two chariots came down and stopped in the sky above the city, another trumpet sounded and another two chariots came down, this continued for a while until there were a number of chariots in the sky above the city. Then angels were moving up and down the line of chariots, placing what looked like large white snowflakes in the backs of the chariots. The church has been too concerned or focused on the snowflakes: the manna/blessings of God, instead of focusing on the Lord Himself. God said the chariots are His guard of honour announcing His imminent and triumphal return to the city; we need to be desiring Him, desiring to see Him and not just looking for the manna from Heaven (the snowflakes).

The positioning of the chariots in the heavenly realms is the positioning of the authority and gate of praise in the wall of the city (that God is establishing) – the chariots being set into place represent God’s time and judgement for the gates and city wells. The spokes inside the wheels are spinning until they’re set into position to hold the gates at the city wells (then they stop spinning), this represents the work of the Spirit in the details of people’s lives and hearts. This next worship well is the setting of the praise gate in the city. In the vision Kenn and Marli kneel down and put their hands in between the wheel spokes and pick up coals and put them to their lips, so now their hands and lips are burning with the songs anointed to bring justice and holiness to the body of Christ in the city. I saw people in the city with hearts, mouths, hands and minds on fire… and then their feet caught fire – and that’s the shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace. This is authorised in heaven, born of the Spirit, there’s nothing we can do in our own strength to make it happen.

Songs of Glory

Songs of glory – 3 March 2015

There are new songs of glory that the church needs to sing. The Lord wants to impart new songs, new ways to express His glory in song that flows from worship. This is a new thing that God wants to do and as the musicians/worshippers ascend the hill of the Lord with clean hands and pure hearts, worshipping in spirit and in truth, the Father seeks them out and gives them songs of His glory to sing over the church in the city. May the church embrace these songs and sing a new song of glory to God!
