JANUARY 2012

Often I am asked how I receive the visions and dreams that I do, and how I perceive them? Prophetic experiences are numerous and diverse, and involve all the primary ways that God spoke to His people in the scriptures. We must understand that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). God still speaks today the same way that He did in times of old. These supernatural experiences found in scripture can be seen throughout church history. God has never stopped speaking to His people. The Apostle Peter made it clear that dreams,visions, and prophectic, are major signs of the outpouring of the

Holy Spirit (Acts 2:14-22). I began to receive visions and dreams in the early 1970s and they have continued on through the years. There have been times of drought where it seemed like the heavens were closed; at other times there were periods of continuous revelations and visions from God. Over the past ten years I have experienced a continuous flow of this kind of revelation. Often these visions occur in a trance-like state which is like dreaming when you are awake. At other times it is like seeing a screen on which a scenario is being played out. There is also the experience which I call “an interactve vision”. This is a vision with which you can interact and ask questions, interacting in a way as if you are part of the vision. During many of these experiences you can be interupted by something or by a phone ringing, but you can return back to the vision later, where it picks up from where it left off. There are times when

I deliberately opt out of the experience because it is just too much for me, but Iam able to come back to it a few days later and again continue from where I left it. Of course these experiences are not on the level of the scriptures, which are infallible, but they can be very accurate, conveying clear messages from the Lord. Through church history there have been many accounts where people were taken to heaven and experienced different things happening there. Some may ask: “Are these experiences real? And if so, what is really happening to them?” In my experience with this, I believe that my spirit was taken to heaven and on return had the ability to remember what I experienced. The ability to remember is temporary and is lost within a few days if I do not record it in writing.

Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. Romans 11:22 For a number of months the Lord has been speaking to me about the year 2012. During this time I have had several visions and encounters with the Lord concerning the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012. The recurring theme of the goodness and severity of the Lord permeated nearly all of these experiences. While the Lord does not always accommodate our earthly times and seasons, such as our calendar, I believe that the end of 2011 marked a very important and significant end to an era and beginning of a new era in the purposes of God. On the 12th of December I saw in a very clear  vision the construction of a large retaining wall. It was made of concrete and reinforced steel. It  was dug in very deep, but when I looked closer,  it was built on sand and to make it worse, the sand was quicksand. Then I heard the Lord say, “The European efforts to prop up the declining Euro Currency will not hold. I will allow this to happen in order to open the way for a new world monetary system commencing in Europe, however Germany, the USA, Canada, the UK will resist these reforms” I was aware that there would be other nations that would resist these reforms but these nations were not inedntified.The Lord went on to say, “I am separating the Goat and Sheep Nations” When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me 0in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:31-40

ISRAEL THE CHURCH AND THE NATIONS

Replacement Theology is one of the most serious deceptions of this age. The bible makes it very clear that the church and Israel will be grafted into one vine (Romans chapter 11). The bible also makes it clear that Israel and the church will be restored together (Joel 2:22). The fig tree, Israel, and the vine, the church, will be restored together in these last days. As Christians we need to align ourselves with God’s plan and purposes for Israel. However, it is also of great importance that the government of the Nation in which you live is also aligned with and is a friend to Israel. The sorting out of the Sheep and the Goat Nations has begun. Jesus made it very clear that those who bless and support His brethren the Jews will qualify as a Sheep Nation. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done t unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. hen shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Matthew 25:40, 32- 34 If your Nation is to survive the winding up of this age, it has to qualify as a Sheep Nation. Not all nations will make it into the Millennium reign of Christ, only the sheep Nations. The Goodness and Severity of the Lord will starT to be played out this year. This will involve the church, the nations and you as an individual. We are now in the birth pangs of the formation of a new world wide monetory system which eventually will make way for the rise of the antichrist. The Sheep Nations will resist this system.

ISRAEL WILL FACE SEVERE CHASTENING

Much of the population of Israel is very godless. Immorality and other grievous sins are rife in Israel. Most of this generation of Israelis are godless and sinful. There is a pride over the ability of their armed forces that will put them in great jeopardy. Many Israelis are atheists. This is not to say that there are no God-fearing Israelis but they are not in the majority. God s about to change this. God is about to place the Nation of Israel in the most difficult, the most hazardous situation that they have ever known. God left Hezekiah to see what was in his heart Howbeit in the business of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to Inquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart. 2 Chronicles 32:31 God is about to do the same with Israel. He will put them in a position where their only chance of survival is God and Jesus the Messiah. The Christ of God will be their only hope. The severity of the Lord is about to be released n Israel. Pray for Israel. They are going to need your prayers. Pray that they will humble themselves and turn back to the Lord. God’s dealings with Israel are also a picture how God will deal with the church. FOR SOME THE CURTAIN FALLS, FOR OTHERS THE DOOR OF MY GOODNESS WILL BE OPENED

I heard the Lord speak these words and as He did I saw an earthquake which caused a dam to burst. The water that flowed from the breached dam was in the form of two separate streams. To some nations and individuals it became a flow of the Goodness of God; the other stream became a flow of the severity and the judgments of God. Chaos will increase In many nations, lawlessness will reach new heights. However, the other side of the coin is that the goodness and blessing of the Lord will flow like never before.

THE LORD WILL STAND

Thursday the 8th of December 2011 was just another day. At 5 a.m. the humidity was already very high and it was very still. Normally the air at this time is filled with various sounds of birds but it was so still, it seemed somewhat surreal. I made a cup of tea, sat down and suddenly I was in another realm. I was standing on the Sea of Glass in heaven, and to my surprise it was very quiet. Usually there is a lot of activity on the Sea of Glass. I walked up to one of the redeemed there and asked him why there was such low activity. This man said, “The Lord is making a very important announcement today in another place”. I said to this man, “I must go there”. With that he took hold of my arm and when he did, I was in another place. I was in a huge auditorium; it was so large I could not see the end of it. It was filled with myriads people, some of which I recognised who had died many years ago. The auditorium was curved and elevated so that everyone could see and hear. The furnishings of the auditorium were exquisite and cannot be described in earthly language. I found myself a few rows from the front and I quickly sat down. The Lord was speaking and was talking about change that was coming, starting 2012. He said things are about to happen that have never happened before. Then He said this: “The Father will stand and will not be seated until all is accomplished”. He then quoted... “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of is world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, nd of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and Ever Revelation 11:15

Then the Lord went on to say “righteousness exalts anation, fire must come to the USA”. As He said this instenly fire came up through the floor in many parts of this great auditorium and curved over, falling into the earth. At this point I could see the earth and this fire falling nto many nations including Israel. Then He said; “Babylon is beginning to fall, come out of her my people”. The Lord said this with such force it shook the building. Then he said “Change Change Change”. As He said this I understood that there would be three changes that were to occur affecting the world and the church, but I was not given to understand what they were. He then went on to say: “The spirit of Elijah is now in the earth, when Elijah was in the earth there were earthquakes, winds roaring, devastation, spiritual confrontations, but I will turn the hearts of the children back to their Heavenly Father.” The Lord then began to preach but I could not understand what He was saying and suddenly I was back in my lounge room. I have meditated on this at length, especially the part where the Father will stand and won’t be seated until it is finished. I was given to understand that this was referenced in Isaiah chapter thirty three. Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself. Isaiah 33:10 I continued to muse on this when the Lord spoke to me saying “read The Final Quest again”. The Final Quest is a classic book written by Rick Joyner. I had read it many years ago and knew it to be a genuine revelation of the heart of God. As I randomly opened the book I read this: “The Lord then stood up and all those who were seated upon the thrones as far as I could see stood up. His eyes burned with a fire I had not seen before. Further in this chapter I read, “Now that He has stood, He will not sit again until the last battle is over. FROM THE CHAPTER ‘THE WHITE THRONE’.

I stared at the words I had just read with the realization that this has now begun. I was struggling with the implications of this and the fact that we are now living in the hour when these things are unfolding. The Goodness and Severity of the Lord has begun to be released in a way that it never has before. God’s judgements are right, and are always motivated by pure love. With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Isaiah 26:9 This shift that occurred at the end of 2011 will be accompanied by more earthquakes and volcanoes. There are shifts in the cosmos that will affect this earth in many ways, starting this year. Jesus said... “when you see these things look up for your redemption draweth nigh” Luke 21:28.

THE WAR OF WORDS In another encounter I was made aware of a coming War of Words. This war was in the form of a Civil War that arose between Christians. This war was relatively short lived and very intense, its primary weapon was slander. The accuser of the brethren was coming forth in an intense onslaught. The issues were over the realm of the Spirit, and the ability of Christians to walk in this realm. Those who had encounters with the Lord, visits to heaven and visions, etc., were considered deceived and practising occult practices. This war of words and slander reached new levels as one group began to accuse the other of many things which were completely untrue. Some Pentecostal denominations wrote many articles denouncing individual Pastors and Christian leaders. God allowed this division to take its course and eventually run out of steam as it were. The use of Twitter and Facebook became prime weapons in this war. I heard the Lord say “I will disrupt their communications”

There is great power in our words and Satan was using words and the power of electronic communications to fill the air with slander. When the Lord said, “I will disrupt their communications”, I saw power outages across wide areas of the world. I also saw that satellites were greatly affected, some burning up as they fell out of orbit. I became aware that the sun was causing a lot of these disruptions. The recent earthquake in Japan with the resulting tsunami caused a small shift in the earth’s axis and the whole physical nation moved over one metre. Major corrections were needed to their GPS systems. I saw this as the earth bowing towards the Son, Jesus. This play on words is very insightful to the spiritually astute, the Son with His Goodness and Severity is causing the earth to bow to the Son. Solar flares will begin to increase greatly; these solar winds will play havoc with communications on the earth. The internet and cell phones will be down for considerable periods of time as God intervenes in this war of words. Those with their brother’s blood on their hands will be judged unless they repent. It is important to remember that we do not fight evil with evil. We must not take sides and respond in a wrong spirit. Those who try to defend themselves God will not defend. God is not taking sides; He is taking over. We are told to love those who slander us; to sincerely bless them and pray for them and let God take over this war. We do not respond to evil and untrue words with the same spirit; we respond with words that bless. Ever since the Tower of Babel pure communication has been hindered. However, God is about to restore a pure language back to the church, a Language of Love. This war of words will be won with a pure language of love that blesses those who slander them. Love never fails. We have a new language to learn – a language of love. This is not an English, German, or French language. Its our own language that comes forth saturated with love. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Matthew 5:11-12 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:44-45

In God’s Kingdom there is a pure language of love that is the source of all power and glory

The Lord is coming forth as a Lamb and a Lion; the Lamb speaks of His nature and the Lion speaks of Kingship and rulership. Our battle is not with flesh and blood, our enemy is not people; it is with spirits of darkness that control many people. This war will give us a great opportunity to come to a place where we can truly love all people as we love ourselves, thus qualifying us to take part in the final battle for this planet. The war over who will control this planet is heating up, but love never fails. The central attribute of the Kingdom of God is  love, and that Kingdom is within you.

TRUE AND FALSE JOSEPHS

The Lord also spoke to me about the rise of false Josephs. Much has been preached and written about the Joseph ministries. The problem is much of the teaching on this subject is selfcentred. Many are claiming to have a Joseph ministry; however it must be remembered what Joseph went through to come to a place where he could be trusted with the wealth of Egypt. Motive is everything in God’s Kingdom. Jesus had a scathing rebuke to those who prophesied, and those who healed the sick and did miracles but did not really know the heart of God.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:22-23 True Josephs have a heart to see Jesus receive His inheritance, not our inheritance. Our inheritance is the Lord, not things. Only those completely surrendered to His will can function as a Joseph. It is the Bond-Servant relationship that is central to this ministry. It is not about what God wants to give us; it is about us giving to Him our lives in absolute surrender. The line between building His Kingdom and our kingdom so often becomes blurred. Everything Joseph did was for Pharaoh the king, and likewise the same applies to us and the Kingdom of God. The Godly and famous preacher Andrew Murray was once asked, “What is the greatest need for Christians today?” He replied, “Absolute Surrender”. We cannot have all that God has for us until He has all of us. Joseph ministry is not about making you wealthy, it’s about making sure that Jesus receives His inheritance in this earth.

TO KNOW THE LORD MUST BECOME YOUR PRIMARY GOAL

So much today is about ministry: What is my ministry? How do you get into it? etc. So many do not realize that the success of their ministry depends on how well they know the Lord, and how much of His nature has been perfected within them. The cry of the Apostle Paul was “that I might know Him”. And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11:32 The world has changed, a new era has begun, and the Lord is standing and will not sit until the saints possess the Kingdom.
