A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – June 2022 (Dose of Prophecy)

HERE COMES THE BRIDE (Continued)

The Church is called to be the radiant bride of Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:2. The members of Christ’s Church are “promised,” engaged now to Him, for eventual presentation to Him as a perfect bride, to be married to Him in a profound spiritual union.

Revelation 19:7. “The wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready.” – How important it is that the Bride of Christ makes herself ready for Him. But how does she do that?

By the Anointing of the Holy Spirit.

Oil in scriptures frequently symbolizes the Holy Spirit anointing Matthew 25. 1 Samuel 10, 16. The virgins with the abundant oil of the Holy Spirit went into the wedding banquet.

By being Baptized-in-the-Holy Spirit.

Jesus did mighty miracles when He was anointed with the Holy Spirit Acts 10:38. 

Jesus’ Bride the Church needs to cry out to God for a double portion of His Spirit like prophet Elisha did in 2 Kings 2:9. “Lord give us more oil!”  The Bride of Christ needs the mighty Baptism-in-the-Holy Spirit.

By being cleansed and washed daily with God’s Word Galatians 5:25-27.

Jesus longs for His bride to be holy and blameless. Like Adam, Jesus will marry a bride “suitable for him” (Genesis 2:18).

By walking in holiness and righteousness

Revelation 19:7-8. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints).

The ready – Bride of Christ is characterized by “righteous acts, she puts her faith in action – spirit-filled, word-filled, holy, righteous, devoted to Jesus, the heavenly Bridegroom.

It is time each of us takes a character inventory and addresses the sinful issues.  Pray, reflect, and examine our hearts.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – May 2022 (Dose of Prophecy)

HERE COMES THE BRIDE (Continued)

Before any wedding, the Bride spends a lot of time preparing herself for her husband. The parable of the ten virgins tells of people who are and are not ready for the appearance of the groom. Our king is coming! And we are all being called to get ready to meet him. Are we ready?

Since Jesus is returning as the Bridegroom, shouldn’t we His Bride, the Church, focus more on deepening our commitment to Him than on browsing over global last day catastrophic events at great length? We ought to be a burning shining lamp to our generation.

What does it mean that Jesus is the Bridegroom? – God did not give up on His unfaithful people. He himself came near as Immanuel who dwelt among us. John the Baptist calls himself a friend of Jesus the Bridegroom.

He said: “The one who has the Bride is the Bridegroom. The friend of the Bridegroom, who stands and hears Him, rejoices greatly at the Bridegroom’s voice. Therefore, this joy of mine is now complete” John 3:29

Jesus calls himself the Bridegroom when criticized for not enforcing the kind of fasting among His disciples, that the Pharisees practised.

He said: “The attendants of the Bridegroom cannot mourn as long as the Bridegroom is with them, can they? But the days will come when the Bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast” Matthew 9:15.

The Bridegroom is coming! Are we ready for the wedding day?

Matthew 25: 1-4,10 At that time the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the Bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps…But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet.

The Church is called to be the radiant Bride of Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:2.

The members of Christ’s Church are “promised,” engaged now to Him, for eventual presentation to Him as a perfect Bride, to be married to Him in a profound spiritual union.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – April 2022 (Dose of Prophecy)

It is the last hour” 1 John 2:18 – Everyone should know it is the last hour.

There is chaos worldwide. We need to recognize the spirit of the Antichrist who has more intensely made his debut.

We need to be aware of spiritual deception reigning paramount in our days – “…false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and will perform signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, the elect” – abandoning steadfast discipleship; absence of sound doctrine. (Mark 13:22-23)

The Bible is full of allusions to God’s people being his bride. In the Old Testament, the prophets often portray God’s people as the beloved but often unfaithful bride.

God is seen as a faithful husband whose steadfast love is strong and lasting, pursuing and winning back his bride repeatedly. Hosea 3; Jeremiah 2

We need to get prepared as the Bride of Christ for the return of our glorious bridegroom King Jesus. While we are doing this we ought to be aware of our enemy, his tactics and his strategy. There shall be widespread deception in our days that if it were possible even to deceive the elect. Matthew 24:24

How shall we present ourselves to our Lord as we await His appearing?

Let us focus on the characteristics of the Bride 0f Christ as we ready ourselves for our beloved Bridegroom Jesus Christ.

The Bride of Christ should be wise like her Bridegroom (Proverbs 9:1).

Be an overcomer like her husband (Revelation 3:21); She builds her house on seven pillars (James 3:17) –

1. Purity
2. Peaceful / Righteous – not quarrelsome
3. Considerate
4. Willing to Yield – willing to receive correction
5. Fullness of Mercy
6. Faithful and loyal
7. Devoid of hypocrisy.

Although she is still far from perfect, she is pressing on and growing towards perfection.

The Church is the ‘Beloved of God.’ – Just like a bridegroom loves his bride so does God Almighty, who professes His love not merely in words, but in sacrificial actions Romans 5:8.

He leaves his palace, his throne, everything, to rescue the one He loves. His actions towards the Church are always full of love. Ephesians 5:25-32.

The Church should be radiantly beautiful. When God sees His Church, His family, He sees her made whole and holy, gloriously and graciously freed from the stains of sin and shining in the light of His love.

And just as He demonstrated in the Old Testament through the prophets who portrayed God’s people as a straying wife with an ever-faithful husband, we can rejoice that God delights to cleanse his bride in an ongoing way when she stumbles: Though the Church is made up of sinful people, they are redeemed by the Blood of Jesus. And redemption is a powerful restorative force that also looks forward to glory when everything wrong will be made right.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” 1 John 1:9.

As with so many sides of the Christian life, there is a lot already done here on earth but a heavenly reality or element not yet done, is the Church’s identity as the Bride of Christ. This is wedding supper celebrating the eternal union of God with His people yet to come. We as believers, are told to prepare ourselves as we await this feast with anticipation and great joy – the glorious future yet to come.

Revelation 19:7 “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.”

Revelation 21:2 is suggestive of the glorious moment in a wedding ceremony when the bride appears. “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband”.

This is what we are preparing for: The Church as the bride of Christ. We will enjoy a blissful celebration as the bride of Christ in God’s eternal kingdom.”

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – March 2022 (Dose of Prophecy)

HERE COMES THE BRIDE

The Bible is the only true prophetic road map that has accurately predicted and fulfilled prophecy after prophecy, including the end times before the rapture of the Church.

King Jesus the Cornerstone is coming back to earth.

And when He does, His kingdom will never end. Though no one knows the day or hour of His arrival, yet each of us ought to be prepared.

The sequence of events to take place: Rapture, Tribulation, Second Coming, Millennium, New Heaven and New Earth.

Matthew 24:24; John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18;
1 Corinthians 15:50-53; Matthew 24:26-27; 1 Peter 4:7;
Revelation 3: 11; Revelation 7:14; Revelation 20:4;
Revelation 21:1-5

Yes, Jesus is coming back again. His first return will be to rapture the Church and bring the Church to heaven for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. 

Seven years later He will come again to the Mount of Olives, splitting it in half. 

The rapture and the second coming are imminent. 

Subsequently, the war begins.

Everyone is looking for good news. There is so much bad news replayed on television and media. The best news the world ever received came out of a cemetery. Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He is alive. He lives. He is seated at the Heavenly Father’s right hand.

He’s coming soon, there’s no doubt,
I’m going to leave this old world with a shout.
Soon I’ll be gone and things will be right.

Keep looking up, He may come tonight.

The trumpet will sound and those in the ground.
Who have kept the faith will be Heaven bound.
We who remain are going too.

I’m going to be there, now how about you?

Nations will tremble, folks run to and fro.
Then we’ll all assemble on this old world below.
Knees will start to bow in’ and tongues shall proclaim.

That Jesus, my Saviour, is the King of Kings.

My heart is overflowing’ with joy and peace.
I know I’ll soon be resting at my Saviour’s feet.
It may be in the morning, it may be at noon.

I don’t know when He’s coming but I know He’s coming soon.

If Jesus were to come today, would you be ready?

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, today is the day to turn your life over to Him!

And if you are not looking for the Lord’s second coming, He is not coming for you.

For all of us looking for His coming, we need to get ready!

We are going up in the twinkling of an eye and not left behind.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – February 2022 (Dose of Prophecy)

A message to all prophetic eagles in a growing prophetic culture setting, in the local churches worldwide – sharing the heart and mind of God

Many of the genuine prophet – seers of our time are passing away, in transit to their celestial home. Like Elijah, their mantles of prophetic authority have been dropping for their successors to pick them up and continue the work they had initiated. The passing on of the mantle of Elijah symbolized the passing on of his ministry (work) to Elisha who ripped off his own clothes, tore them into pieces and placed Elijah’s mantle on his back, with the commencement of the young prophet’s own remarkable ministry.

Elisha’s tearing of his clothes also could have been symbolic of getting rid of his own mantle and putting on Elijah’s. This shows that Elisha must carry on the responsibilities of leadership as Elijah had done. Similarly, God wants to do greater things with each succeeding generation. And each new generation must seek Him for His purpose in their involvement.

For many of those in the shepherding ministry, there has been a hesitancy of ripping off the old mantle, of work that has culminated and engaging in the new expanding horizon of possibilities – so their progress has plateaued

(The Tide 0f The Spirit, Watchman Nee)

“If you in your day and generation fully respond to God’s requirements, you will find yourself borne onward in the stream of His purpose. If, however, you hold on to the past, wanting God to do as He has formerly done; wanting Him to repeat something that in your estimation ranks high in spiritual value, you will find yourself out of the mainstream of His goings.

“To be a Luther in the sixteenth century was a good thing, but to be a Luther in the twentieth century would not meet the need. To be a Wesley was of great value to the Lord in the eighteenth century, but it would be inadequate in the twentieth century. Every instrumentality raised up of God has a specific function, and the contribution made to the Church by each one is exactly suited to the need of the hour, but it would not serve to build up the Church at a later stage in the Church’s development.

“Unfortunately, many people fail to recognize the onward flow of the living stream all through the Church’s history. We who are on the earth today have inherited vast wealth through the saints who have already made their contribution to the Church. We cannot overestimate the greatness of our heritage, nor can we be sufficiently thankful to God for it; but if today you try to be a Luther or a Wesley, you will be a complete failure. You will fall short of the purpose of God for this generation, for you will be moving backward while the tide of the Spirit is flowing steadily onward. The whole trend of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is an onward trend. The record from beginning to end is progressive unfolding of God’s goings.”

In this Old Testament scene, Elijah is a type of Christ ascending to the father. And Jesus promises us, “You’re going to do greater works than even I have done, because I go to my father” (John 14:12). In essence, He’s saying “You’re going to need more of my anointing, power and authority than any past generation has had. And my Spirit is going to endue you with all you need to be overcomers.”

Eagles, you have to go where eagles dare. This is the time you have to move on as messenger- prophet- seer, to your generation worldwide of the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Be ready to soar high over all the storms of impending doom and gloom, with a fire in your heart and a word in your mouth as ambassadors of the soon coming King Jesus – preaching repentance and holiness unto the Lord. And expect the Lord to turn around the situation for the good of His children.

Yes, there are some who are walking in the fear of the Lord. Yet others in their lack a daisy approach are unconcerned A biblical view of sin necessitates a judgment beyond the grave. Yet they should still know that Jesus is the friend of sinners knocking on the door of their hearts seeking entry. We should pray for them.   

Sin in the believer’s life is no less offensive to God. In one sense, it is a greater offence, for the Christian has the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome it. The doctrine of eternal judgment should motivate the Christian to take evangelism seriously. If men and women are going to spend eternity in torment, apart from the living God, it is imperative that we warn them of the danger they are in. Prophetic evangelism is on the rise, do enrol, for the very last of the days are at hand.

It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God and yet some ridicule the prophet and the prophetic. God have mercy!

The prophet Samuel’s mantle was torn by King Saul resulting in his kingdom being torn away from him. “Touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm” – a clarion call from the Almighty!

These are the days of Elijah – Declaring the word of the Lord
And these are the days of Your servant Moses – Righteousness being restored

And though these are days of great trial- Of famine and darkness and sword
Still, we are the voice in the desert crying “Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”

Behold, He comes riding on the clouds- Shining like the sun at the trumpet call
Lift your voice, the year of jubilee – And out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel – The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of Your servant David – Rebuilding a temple of praise

Oh, these are the days of the harvest- For the fields are as white in Your world
And we are the labourers in Your vineyard – Declaring the word of the Lord!

Oh, we give glory to You, Lord.

You’re the Lion of Judah. The Lamb who was slain

You’re the God of Jacob

You’re the God of Elijah

You’re the Lord God of Israel

You’re the Lord God of the universe

You’re God of Heaven and earth
Oh, Lord our King and our Redeemer

Jesus is Lord now and forever!

2022 Prophecy — Prophet Tony Mathias

The following is the Prophet’s interpretation and sensing in the spirit – open to the Guild of Prophets for confirmation or contradiction.

Happy New Year 2022!

This is what I sense in my spirit.

There have been a number of ‘Rise and Fall’ episodes in the former years – rise and fall of nations: – the collapse of great empires; Roman Empire, Nazi Germany culminating in world War 2. The cycle of rise and decline appears to be accelerating.  History has been repeating itself. And there is a foreboding of World War 3 being hatched.

Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 

The world of today is now racked by mounting unrest – a global collapse of society, downfall of the government, and rise of violence and it is happening in prophetic timeline.

Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin – an Aramaic phrase found in the Book 0f Daniel – Chapter 5, handwriting on the wall and Daniel’s interpretation.

I sense that in the spiritual and secular world, many dignitaries are going to be ousted, fall from power and grace.

God has numbered their days of rule and brought it to an end – they have been tried and found to be ineffective, unacceptable. They have been weighed in the scales and found lacking Their kingdom on an individual and corporate level is divided

To whom does this apply to? – Governmental and Church Authorities.

I see people around a large community – well, exiting and entering homes with house–wells. I sense there will be a decline of institutional mega-churches and mushrooming of house– churches, and pockets of revival.

‘Veni, Vidi, Vici’ – a Latin phrase popularly attributed to Julius Caesar – ‘I came, I saw, I conquered.’ The time for ‘Playing Church’ for those who are playing church is over. They will not survive or be successful for much longer. The pandemic achieved this in part. Let it not be said to the lukewarm churches – “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth” – For judgment has begun with the house of God.

The ‘Fall Away’ has begun – Fall away from the Church; Fall away from the Bible and Biblical practices; Fall away from the truth of God’s Word – a Church in apostasy. Many Christians run to sources other than the Bible. A new fad of just gleaning on short ‘scriptural forwards’ or ‘ear tickling’ quotes would not get the job done. Especially since backsliding has been promoted by the prevailing pandemic

Right now, we are witnessing a steady defection from the basic principles of the Bible. The scripture says – “…in the latter times some shall depart from the faith.” We need to learn from the Berean Christians who held scripture with high regard which became their daily pursuit, source of truth, reference book, or material to read in search of what is true. We need to make the word of God our sole basis for truth and error, diligently search Scriptures daily, be ready to receive God’s truth when we soak in His word. There’s no better, more accurate, and infallible source of Godly instruction other than the Bible itself.

Many false prophets have arisen and have deceived many. And many more will arrive. There will be betrayals – watch out for this.

This is the time to discern the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

There will be a John the Baptist kind of ministry coming forth with a call to repentance and walking in the fear of the Lord.

The Beginning of the End – the year of Reckoning and Repentance.

The Great Apostasy has begun. The coming of the Lord is very near. Repentance and confession of sin is God’s provision for us to deal with sin. Let us forsake our sins and lean on Jesus and take His righteousness which He freely offers and lives in Him by the power of His endless life. If you know a professing believer in sin, pray for that person to repent of his sin. You could gently confront him. But do not judge him as to his state in Christ. The Lord will hear your prayer.

But thanks be to God who is able to keep us from falling and present us faultless before the presence of His glory. Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

There seems to be similar incidents that occurred during the days of Jesus from His birth and are occurring in our lifetime today as we await His coming such as – Infanticide – abortion; Special taxes – Increased Taxes GST; Interstellar Phenomenon; Religious Apostasy; An Older Generation awaiting His coming like Anna and Simeon.

God has vested in us His believing people – authority to determine the destinies of nations and governments for His glory and our good. If we fail to do so we are answerable for the consequences.

Do Not Be Discouraged!

Your expected breakthrough is at hand – make a claim on it and expect to receive. Your prayers have been answered, believe it, though it has taken time to manifest. God’s delays are not denials. Suddenly, unexpected doors will fly open, unexpected channels will be set free for your supply. Do not limit the Holy One 0f Israel. He is restoring to you the years the locusts have eaten – your glorious good is now coming to pass. This is your appointed time. Believe and expect that. The wealth of the gentiles is laid up for the righteous.

Everything is about to change further. In the days ahead as the world grows darker, God’s Anointing will show up in His people. He is raising a Remnant ablaze with His Glory who will walk in His Authority. His Glory will fall once again, and people will be saved, healed, and transformed.  His Presence will rest on their homes.  His Glory will descend on gatherings and people will be saved, healed, delivered, and transformed.

Lives will be transformed through prayers, and spiritual attacks quelled through intercession. He says His people will proclaim His Word with boldness and authority, understanding the creative power of His Word in their mouths. His Word spoken, will come to pass. They will decree and it will be established.

“Creation is about to see the manifestation of the sons of God on the earth.”God is raising prophets like Elisha in our days.  The Bride of Christ is making herself ready for her Bridegroom. The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.”.

To God be the Glory!

The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of u.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – DECEMBER 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

Do you believe you have a God-given destiny? That the Lord has great plans and purposes for your life? At times, you feel discouraged and lose hope of arriving at your God-given destiny and acquiring all that God has for you, being hampered in your moving forward due to the adversary’s harassment. It is true that the process of coming into our destiny in God does not happen without a struggle. Sometimes we have to fight our way into the victories God promises for our lives and the lives of our loved ones. It is a ‘good fight’ because, with His help, He assures us of a good win.

You were born to be a winner and do great things for God! You are the one who shapes your future despite your past that cannot derail your future because the amazing potential of God abides in you.

God plucked you out of the fiery circumstances because He has a purpose for you, a destiny to be fulfilled. You may fail or falter at times (James 3:2) but His eye is upon you and His desire is: “You will succeed in whatever you do and light will shine on the road ahead of you.” Job 22:28.

God is so good – He chooses our inheritance for us (the promised land – the land of fulfilled promises) Psalms 47:4.

We need to call forth those things that are not as though they already were for they are a heavenly reality. God’s eyes are upon you to prosper you, while the enemy’s eyes are on you to accuse you when you fail (Revelation 12:10) and hinder you from fulfilling your destiny.

God has a special plan and a purpose for every one of us and it started in eternity. (Jeremiah 29:11).

He foreknew, chose, and predestined us working out the course our lives would take (Romans 8). 

God knows us better than we know ourselves. He calls us to do what He knows He can enable us to do, provided we depend on His grace, not on our own ability. Every time we begin to depend on our own ability, we get into trouble.

They say the greatest tragedy in life is not death but life without a purpose. Everybody has a destiny and that includes you. God himself takes a personal interest in it. He chose your inheritance for you, providentially tailoring it just for you with a beautiful future for you who entrusts your life to him. Whether you realize it or not, you are also shaping your future by the words of your mouth and meditation of your heart and your faith acts– planting the right seeds be it in thought, word, deed, attitude, or resource.  You need to release the greatness of the ‘Greater One’ inside of you to obtain your destiny. You need His help and the Word of His mouth to heal your past and unlock your destiny archenemy

Pray against the archenemy of your soul in whatever ways he has attempted to block the fulfillment of your God-given destiny and purpose for your life

Make this declaration:

I renounce every legal right Satan has to deter my destiny! I pull down every stronghold that binds up my destiny! And I set myself fee in Jesus’ Name!

Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – March 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

It is written that life and death are in the power of the tongue.

It is also written that pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones.

Therefore choose life giving words that come from Him and proclaim them.

The words of the Lord are spirit and life to those who find them and medicine to all flesh

So He says: ‘Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.’ Psalms 81:10

Ask God to fill your mouth with prophetic words that cater to the needs of people including yourself and usher in the Kingdom of God.

As you praise Him, He will inhabit your praises (Psalms 22:3).
And as you release prophetic words to encourage, exhort, comfort and build others, it will bless others and yourself as well.

Let gratitude that is vocal be your attitude. Has He not said, that in everything give thanks to Him including good and bad occurrences? This will release further blessings to you.

Even in the temporal sense appreciating someone for a past favour paves the way for more. Therefore we need to comfort and edify each other (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

The Lord waits for us to release that miracle from our mouth.

Be blessed and highly favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – February 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

He who dwells in the Shelter of the Most-High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty
Psalms 91:1

The God who sheltered His people in biblical days will not stop now.

He sheltered Noah, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Naomi, Elijah, Daniel, Apostle Paul and so on will He not shelter you?

When you face times and you chase your seemingly impossible dream, remember tough times do not last but tough people do, even your worries can be temporary if you do not pay attention to them, for has it not been written – ‘In nothing be anxious…’

At such moments remind yourself of God did for you in the past – Recall, Replay, O victorious one and give God the glory, for better times are ahead.

Didn’t Moses tell the people of Israel when they were prone to get discouraged – “… remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt”
Deuteronomy 7:17-18, so must we.

When faced with obstacles on your way to reach your highest potential, recall, replay your past major victories

‘The things we see are temporal, but the things we can’t see are eternal.’

Be not discouraged at what you see, it is not permanent. God is working in all things for your good. The best is yet to come.

Be blessed and highly favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – January 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

I hear the Lord saying:

Get ready, I am all of a sudden changing things in your life.

Get ready for new locations at the right time. Your present place is not permanent and too small for you.

Expansion, with explosive blessings approaching inclusive of financial gains.

You have not seen my explosive blessings yet

unlimited immeasurable surpassing greatness of God’s favour. (Ephesians 2:7)

Unexpected inheritance to you from a family member…

Be blessed and highly favoured to you who fear the Lord and walk in His ways.

2021 Prophecy — Prophet Tony Mathias

The following is the Prophet’s interpretation and sensing in the spirit – open to the Guild of Prophets for confirmation or contradiction.

Happy New Year 2021!

Year of the Turnaround New Beginnings!

The Lord says: ‘Can I not?’
‘I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is anything too difficult for Me?’ Jeremiah 32:27

The Spirit says: I am turning things around quickly.

The last year went spinning with global impact during the pandemic causing social, economic, political disruption, adversely affecting livelihoods and health, some even turning away from the faith.

But this new year is the year of the ‘reverse spin,’ where things begin to normalize.

It may seem like things are going to worsen, the storm too dark and strong, and on your own you are done.

Fear not God is with you – the storm-stiller, the fire-quencher, the giant-slayer, who shuts the mouth of lions.

Fear not you who serve the El Shaddai, you will have more than enough. Divine order is being established.

Spinning finally stops, clarity resumes and God’s plan and purpose comes to pass. Hold fast to your faith without wavering.

The Lord is breathing life into dreams He gave you which seem dead, while you picture yourself in them as alive calling them forth as though they already existed and they will be fulfilled.

There is going to be an increase of divine revelations.

The supernatural is going to become more and more a natural occurrence.

The God of suddenly’s is going to manifest Himself to restore to you what you have lost.

The Lord has not forgotten you. He is the God who sees.

He has set you apart for a time like this to show the world that He can take care of you, for are you not more important than the birds He takes care of?

At the time of recession for you who fear the Lord, you will have surplus so you can praise the Lord and give Him glory – for He is your provider.

Miracle provision is on the way.

There is going to be a wave of supernatural healing and deliverance miracles from this year onwards, quite a number of them even without the immediate instrumentality of humans, as the people call upon the name of the Lord – He will save, heal, deliver

The Master saysthe works I do you shall do and greater works than these…

There is going to be a great significance in the usage of the word ‘Call.’
As He is so are we in this world.
So call as He called forth miracles!

He who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved healed delivered.

Call unto Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not.

Call forth things that are not as though they already existed.

There is going to come supernatural signs in the atmosphere and sky above and hideous creatures surfacing from within the earth.

Increase in global temperature; cracks in the mountains.

While the revival of God is taking place, there will be a revival of filth and sin.

Sinning will grow worse, but where sin abounds, grace does much more abound

Some noted criminals and underworld gangsters are going to come into repentance and turn to the Lord

There is coming a change in church formation and structure.

Mega Churches will receive opposition to their routine functioning.

Mushrooms of house churches will be formed.

All the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord gradually in this revival season.

There will be continual spiritual warfare – God’s warfare angels will make the scene and especially those of the higher-order to battle and rout out the cohorts of the evil one.

The Lord builds His Church where the gates of hell shall not prevail against.

There will be many visitations of the Lord and His angels, commissioning, mantles, anointings to serve the Lord.

Some of God’s Generals will pass away.

Two Presidents shall pass away and there will be a time of instability at their demise.

God’s faithful ones need to keep ready, walking in the fear of the Lord, serving the Lord with gladness with the ornament of worship.

Jesus is Lord now and forever!

Walk in the fear of the Lord and be blessed and highly favoured!

A blessing extended to all the nations of the earth
God Almighty may Your Kingdom Come and Will be Done!
Jesus Christ Is Lord Now And Forever!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – October 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

Miracles of Provision

In the spirit, I see people facing the sea, dipping their feet in the water along with empty baskets.

Little wavelets from the incoming waves come forth to bathe their feet bringing fish along. Some brought single baskets others brought multiple. The people begin to gather and fill their baskets with fish to an over-flowing. Some felt sorry they had not brought more carry – baskets. I sense the fish convey not only salvation but opulence (great wealth).

I am reminded of the widow whose husband died and her sons were to be sold into slavery – she couldn’t pay her bills.

Prophet Elisha asked her what she had. She replied that she had only a small jar of olive oil. So he sent her out to gather vessels to make provision for the increase she was about to miraculously receive.

The oil multiplied, the jars were filled, then the oil stopped flowing because there were no empty vessels left, to contain the oil. Then Elisha told her to sell the oil, pay her bills, and she and her sons could live off the rest.

Her miracle was in her own house. And there is a miracle for you in your house as well.

God will work a miracle with what you have, not with what you don’t have. Give Him what you have. He will multiply it and keep pouring it out to you, as long as you have a place for Him to fill, for these are the days of Elijah – Elisha, mantle – throwing time for the turn-around.

I perceive the Lord saying that for you who fear Him, who are good givers, and who walk in His ways – there is a turn-around coming for you. Do not fear adverse situations confronting you, for there is coming a new beginning, a resuscitation of God-initiated dying or dead dreams.

I hear the Lord saying:

“For you who love me, obey me, fear me, you will experience miraculous acts of provision from Me in the coming days, for I have heard your prayers and seen your tears. I have not forsaken you. You will find your provision coming to you from even least sought for or unlooked places, even from empty purses, cupboards, roadside and so on – Do you know where Peter got the money? –  from the fish’s mouth – for I am the Lord your Provider.

“As you fix your eyes on me you will find your income largely increase even though your pay-cheque or known sources of income are limited, for I have ways that are higher than your ways, and I know how to prosper you, seek My Kingdom first and walk in righteousness

“You shall be sought for by others whom you hardly even know who will bless you. I am the Holy One of Israel and I am unlimited, so do not limit Me. Do not lean unto your own understanding but acknowledge Me in all your ways and I will direct your paths.

“And you see the water touching your feet – be shod with the gospel of peace on a mission to preach the gospel while you continue with your earthly profession, for the gospel must be preached and souls saved and money will be miraculously provided as well for the mission. You will prosper and be blessed.

“I will send some of you to other nations and nationalities inland, overseas with the good news of not only salvation but also how to bring glory to God in the good works you do.

“Let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Be blessed and highly favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – September 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

The Battle for the Crown

This year is the beginning of transition for many, the year of the shift – shift into what? – a Crown Shift!

From, Kingdom of this world and its allegiance to the god of this world who is dethroned – to welcoming the soon coming return of Jesus the King of Glory and His Kingdom.

Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, enthroned in worlds above,
Crown Him the King to Whom is given the wondrous name of Love.
Crown Him with many crowns, as thrones before Him fall;
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns, for He is King of all.

From self-destruct to revival; Though there be an apostasy or a great fall away, the backslidden afflicted, storm-tossed, helpless, and lost will return largely due to interceding ones breaking the tempter’s power, for God is greatly concerned about His children and many sinners will be saved as well. Even barren churches will have labour pains and many children. There is coming, an expansion!

We shall overcome! Walk in holiness dear overcomers! Pray! Pray! Pray!

I recall someone prophesying over me a couple of years ago – “There’s a wind coming against you with full force, pushing you backwards, preventing your onward journey. It suddenly turns around you and propels you forward to your assigned destination.” – Yes that’s true it is currently happening in my life, as I am moving on by the tide of the Spirit “…all things work together for good to them that love God, to them, who are -the called, according to his purpose.” Romans 8: 28.

In a similar context, the recent pandemic, a global occurrence crossing international borders, is like a gigantic force, impeding progress, causing first of all a pandemic of fear with questions arising in the minds of public health officials – ‘How deadly is it?’ ‘Can it be contained? ‘When will it be exterminated?’ – followed by panic, pandemonium, fear of the unknown, uncertainty, devastation, collapse of economic activity in its wake of death, destruction, threatening to wreck the fabric of society and more.

Be comforted to know that God has not abandoned us nor His good plans for us. When we are fearful of what is going on and what the future might hold, we need to remember that our ultimate comfort can be found in God’s love and protection.

“Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.” Psalms 57: 1

“Our help is in the Name of the Lord who made the heavens and the earth…”

Our survival instinct even begins to threaten our compassion. So God is calling us to continue in love and compassion, the world needs it and especially those around us.

While keeping to the norms of social distancing and taking care and precautionary measures, we should not forget we are one in the Spirit and should pray for each other – a great opportunity, to change things for the better routing out demons of fear and pursuing our God-given destiny.

Finally, the force or wind of trouble or tempest arrayed against us will be turned in our favour as we rest peacefully in Him the Rock of Ages, propelling us into our God-given destiny. He has the ability to provide rock-solid security for all ages. This current pandemic is reaching some alarming proportions. It’s easy to get caught in fear. But if we are walking with the Lord, many Scriptures promise us that He is with us and will take care of us. We are repeatedly told not to be afraid.

‘Rock of Ages cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee.’

It has been said – “When you run alone, you run a race. When you run with God, you run by grace.” His grace is sufficient for you.

One Year Recap of the Prophet’s Pen (Synopsis August 2019 – July 2020)

AUGUST 2019
Disciples of Jesus, there’s a storm coming – get in the boat. God the Storm-Stiller says fear not, He will handle the storm, keep us afloat, get us safely to the other side and chase the enemy (evil one) away who is in the storm. He says, He is making us overcomers through His Word, while we are in the midst of the storm, to thrive beyond the storm not just survive, with a promise of its cessation.

(Current Pandemic, sensed in August 2019?)

SEPTEMBER 2019
God is leading you through the open door – new beginnings to avail of His secrets and plans in line with His destiny for you, to a world of opportunities, unexpected doors, new revelations, new seasons of change, doors of hope, doors of ministry, secrets galore. The door He shuts, quit banging on, enter the one He opened for you with an angel on assignment to help create what you were designed for –  to serve people in love He sends across your path and be a blessing to them.

OCTOBER 2019
A right time for everything on earth, an opportune time to do things – a right time to reap or plant –discern! Discern the times for you and the seasons. Though the sorrows may last for a night, joy comes in the morning! God keeps watch over your weeping. Your due time has arrived – the hour of turnaround.


NOVEMBER 2019
Jesus is coming soon are you ready? God is calling His people to fulfil the Greatest Commandment to love and Great Commission to make disciples. He’s calling for a reckoning and a rewarding! He is calling His Generals as back-up, to the Joshua Generation that is being led from revelation to righteous revolution endowed with divine authority, anointing and strategic battle plans ahead.

DECEMBER 2019
God is calling the Joshua Generation to intimacy with Him. He is releasing supernatural anointing over them for the task ahead as forerunners going beyond the veil into the realms of heaven and coming back with a good report drawing others in. There’s going to be a multitasking and acceleration. The Spirit of God is giving new direction and fresh vision blowing their spiritual enemy away as they worship.


JANUARY 2020

Dead dreams are being resurrected, this is the time of ‘latter end increase.’ He will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten – joyful returns; seemingly impossible coming to pass. You will receive more than you have asked for with abiding peace to enable you to glorify the Lord.

 

FEBRUARY 2020
God says He will fill us with wisdom the principal thing in all affairs of life if we but ask. He will cause us to prophesy His Word with wisdom; declare His goodness in the land of the living. He has given us authority over all the power of the evil one; to pull down strongholds; bring down territorial spirits and so on but that will not do until we use our authority. That as we walk in His ways, we will walk in His favour and reach our destination.

 

MARCH 2020
He says – He has given us a spirit of wisdom and revelation, insight into mysteries and secrets by knowing Him through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, that includes sudden understanding and perception of situations, or mysteries. And the power to decree what He has declared and see it come to pass through intimacy.


APRIL 2020

While we are in the ‘Eye of the Storm,’ during this stressful period of time (pandemic), the Lord says: He will ‘guard and guide’ us to manoeuvre peacefully; we have nothing to fear, He is in our boat. All we need to do is acknowledge Him in all our ways, commune with Him in the Secret Place. Then He will write letters to us in the Spirit which will be despatched by His faithful angels into our letter-boxes (spirit man) to read, ponder and respond – keeping us safe from destiny–Killers.

 

MAY 2020
The Lord says: This is the appropriate season, appointed time for permitting His judgment of the global-pandemic since wickedness is reigning paramount having replaced justice. But there will be a quick exit of this virus for the sake of His very own who cry out to Him. After the storm will come the calm – and a worldwide much-awaited global great awakening revival which the prophets have foretold. There is going to be a great hunger for hearing the voice of God, and the prophetic. He says, He will manifest His presence with visitations inside locked doors.

 

JUNE 2020
Waiting always seems a trial of patience. But God works in all circumstances, situations for the good of those who love, trust and acknowledge Him not leaning on to their own understanding or self-reliance. Though sorrow may last for the night, joy comes in the morning. And this shall be followed by the greatest revival of all – dancing in His glory.

 

JULY 2020
There are people in our days as have been in the past who have despised ‘Prophecy and the Prophet.’ And now there is a turn-around a ‘growing interest’ in Bible prophecy amid the pandemic from different strata of life including sceptics. The time of reckoning and God’s judgment has arrived in the Church as well as the world. God says – Repent and Love not the world nor the things of this world. Social distancing is necessary, relational distancing is not. Though the Christian, has the assurance of salvation and hope of eternity because of the Blood of Christ shed on the cross for us. It is time to prepare to meet our God and end play – Church.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – August 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

I recall a vision I had of an ‘Angel in Armour’ dragging a round-headed tentacled creature from the sea, cutting off its head and parading it in triumph.

This could represent the present Virus engulfing the world coming from a literal sea or through a sea of people.

The permission for its existence and eradication through Godly interference could be a part of God’s move and end time plan.

After the storm comes the calm.

We pray for better days ahead soon.

I sense, God is turning the arms of the clock so that we complete what we started in His Will but abandoned.

Dead dreams are being resurrected.

During this time of pandemic seclusion God is realigning partially jumbled, partially obscured blue prints to His original intent.

Time spent with the Lord is never a waste especially during this time of seclusion.

It is an eye-opener for a ‘Mary-Martha’ episode, from busy-ness to focusing on His business.

 

Fear not at what’s happening.
It’s all under control

Orchestrated by Me in ways that escape understanding
Cease after having taken its toll

Numbers may seem astronomical
Most assuredly shall fall

With hope in Me unshaken
Cause an unwinding downward spiral after all

The clouds are shifting darkness dispelled.
The Sun is shifting and all is well

Look back and you can tell.
Lessons learned have worked out well

Curtains are parting, a new panorama makes its debut

For you My choice ones entrusting.
That will gladden your hearts and make it all pleasing

Cease from worry and fear and be at peace.
Trust in Me and all this uproar will cease.

Be Blessed And Highly Favoured!
