Wisdom Speaks at Summer’s Berthing (Poem)

Whether the sky’s face is grey and its tear drops fall daily on the earth as though in remorse, Summer is on her berth and is here to stay her course.

It’s a season we judge not by her countenance whether bleak or gay. Her worth is vast and more precious than meets the eye so mortal man is not fast to judge.
Listen to Wisdom speak.

Wisdom proclaims her breaking forth is as the dawning of a new day; An era to arise and shine as the sun does beam it’s rays on a Summer’s day.

 A time to wear a smile of contentment and be clad in the cloak of gladness sown in Spring from a tapestry of God’s victories in the Autumn of oppression and the Winter of discord.

Wisdom speaks of her as the season to reflect on God’s truths so as to deflect from falsehood, discard the unproductive and disregard the immotive.

By her, productive and active shall you be. Able to invest and harvest not in haste, but in God’s heartfelt rest.

Listen to Wisdom speak: “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.”(1)

His speech of renewal at Summer’s berthing until she departs, is what Wisdom hears from Father in every season and sees Him doing for whatever reason.

“Wisdom is the Principle Thing” (2)

Listen to Wisdom Speak.

A poem in Book: Our God Reigns: Inspirational Prophetic Christian Poetry

(Pictures of Grenfelll Tower (burning) London, terrorist attacks in Manchester, Westminster,London Bridge and Borough Market)

With tears streaming down our faces we say “how much more tragedy can we bare?”

“How many more shall come our way?”

We have seen human carnage in succession, our trauma deepens day by day as a sore that cannot heal. 

Walking the streets, fulfilling our mission, we are targets for a terrorist’s ambition in what he calls his religious tradition. 

Who can we trust?

Our burnt tower stands as a stark monument to inequality and a mark of injustice.

Burnt ’cause authority heads deemed trustworthy ignored poor residents complaints of safety hazards in their stead. 

Their voices treated as mere clanging cymbals until now when there are injured and some are dead. 

Where can we turn!

Even homes we call safe go up in flames faster than lightening strikes.

When? we cannot even tell. It is what the vulnerable calls frightening.

Beyond our British Isles our wails can be heard, but can escape come from yonder if not from within ? 
Our hearts are broken daily, the shattering sound and scattered pieces spell tragedy.

Across the seas our tears are seen, but even if they turn to blood what can the foreigner do, if no help is found in our land ? 
There is only one we can trust, who hears and sees. He is “our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (1). Futile is life without Him. 

One who saves and raises His voice saying “enough is enough”. One who can melt hearts of steel and open blind eyes to fight for our cause. 

It is to Adonai we yield, to God we kneel and by His Spirit, we raise our voice and wail.He is our only hope and salvation.

Quote (1) Psalm 46:1

Psalm 85:7-9

7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

8I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.

9surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land;

Father, let it no longer be said…

Father, let it no longer be said “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.(1)”
Let them of every race and nation be gathered in for your set time is now!
Heaven rejoices when lives put to the test, pass and invest time to labour for the ingathering of many a neighbour.  
Father, let it no longer be said “The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people…Behold, I [am] a dry tree.”(2)
Let them of every race and nation hear your voice and break forth into rhapsodies of praise!
For the Jew and Gentile together are one in Christ and never “a dry tree” but a “well watered garden” drinking from the well of salvation. Out of their bellies flow rivers of living waters for the healing of nations.

Precious One of El Shaddai! (Exhortation)

 Let us be reminded that every word or phrase written in the bible has either a redemptive or blessed (or both) relevance to our lives. God’s Word has prophetic significance and never returns void. 

The breastplate worn by the High Priests of Israel had the names of the twelve tribes of Israel written on each of the twelve precious stones. This is how precious each of the twelve tribes are to Elohim God.
Similarly this is a revelation that the name of every child of God who is heir to the promises of the house of Israel through Christ Yeshua (the once and for all sacrificial Lamb and High Priest) is known and precious to Elohim God. 
Scripture says we are treasures in earthen vessels (2 Corinth 4:7). Elohim God’s people are a crown of glory and a royal diadem in His hand (Isaiah 62). 
El Shaddai, one of the names of God means that He is our sufficiency but is also expressed as “the many breasted God”. As a mother He nurtures those who are close to his heart because they are His children. 
As precious ones to God, we are as it were grafted onto His chest or heart. He cares about that which concerns us and works to perfect it (Psalm 138:8).
Being precious to God is being fabulous in God’s sight! What more can I say?

Have expectations? Using the right “Ignition keys” guarantees God is at the Steering Wheel 

💒Word of encouragement:

Are you expecting something to happen or a change to take place in your life, your circumstances or a situation ?
The first thing to wait for or to listen out for is the Word of God

In creation when there was a void, God said “Let there be” and there was.
The word of the LORD came to Elijah: 1And it came to pass [after] many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.
2And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab…” (1 Kings 18:1). 

The Word of God is the Word of truth, that affirms His will, it stirs up faith and creates an atmosphere of expectation to believe and wait on God for what He has promised.
The Word of the LORD came to Elijah as it is written in 1 Kings 18:1. In order for a change in our circumstances from “famine” to abundant “rain”‘of blessings or from chaos to order, let us use the following “ignition keys” that allow the Word of God to come to us daily:
– Bible reading and meditation, for He is faithful to give us personal (Rhema) words through the written word.

– prayer and praise while waiting to hear from God in our hearts for He delights to speak to us. 

This way, we can guarantee that God is at work with and through us victoriously for He desires to be at the “Steering Wheel” of our Destiny path.

Happiness is knowing … 

The 25th May 2017 was Ascension day and I am reminded with comfort and joy of these words of assurance of Jesus to his disciples 
“1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:1-2 KJV)

It is also comforting to know that Christ is still working for us in his position as one seated at the Right Hand of Father God; He is making intercession in regards to that which concerns you and I. 
He never stops being interested in us or caring about our concerns this is because Yeshua is God and that is God’s nature. He is El Shaddai, our sufficiency or “a more than enough God” as some of us like to say and He is also omniscient.

David who became king of Israel was so amazed and touched by God’s absolute interest in him and humanity in general that He formulated psalms about it, such as Psalm 8 and 139. David said  
“4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? (Psalm 8:4 KJV).

David also said to God “8If I ascend up into heaven, thou [art] there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou [art there].” (Psalm 139:8 KJV).

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians “4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman…” (Gal.4:4 KJV)
Likewise in God’s perfect timing Christ died was buried and rose again. All of this was so that we would be saved, die to self and rise in newness of life and be reconciled to God (Gal 3:13-14/John 11:25). 
Then a time came for Christ’s ascension but not before he promise his disciples that they should wait in Jerusalem for the time when they will be baptised with the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-5)
Brethren, we praise God that there is a blessed timing for every thing !! As with Christ so with us! Does that not give you joy, knowing that everything is determined and has a set time by He who is in control and concerned about every aspect of your life and mine? 
Most of us can remember when we were in the kingdom of darkness abounding in sin and how when “the fullness of the time was come” we were saved! Glory be to God that He sovereignly brought us into the sheepfold under the tender care and guidance of the Good Shepherd our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 
There is another set time that true believers in Christ await with excitement and anticipation; Christ’s Second Coming in the clouds as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. May we be ready for that time! 
This poem celebrates this great event and what it’s sound would be like:

Maranatha! (Come Lord Jesus)

The sound from Heaven is as the roar of rushing waters. The voice of God as the noise of the harp. In reverence, people listen.
The sound of thunder is as a harsh voice a rebuke, beckoning lightening and floods of rain, fearful people shut their ears and take cover.
The sound of rain awaited in a tropical terrain, whether harsh or soft is as sweet melodies. Joyful people lend their ears, for they longed for it’s coming.
The sound of the Messiah when he comes in the clouds, will be heard, a longing fulfilled.
The sound, whether as rushing waters, thunder or awaited rain, harsh or soft is a triviality of no avail, for the gravity of his Coming is in the most blessed detail.

The sound of the Bride in her choral chants and intercession, is heard day and night. And with the Spirit says “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life…”…Amen Even so, comes, Lord Jesus! 1”

Cycles of the Beloved’s Life (Romans 8:28)

Beloved of God, the cycle of abuse, cycle of offence are cycles to refuse. 

The cycle of restraint, cycle of defeat are cycles to resist.

For he who saved you, Yeshua your Lord has planned for you peaks and troughs for victorious outcomes to the glory of God.

Up times are times to praise God with hands raised and doing His bidding, with hearts grateful and testifying.
Down times are not times to rot but to access what you’ve got,and to thank God, He has saved and blessed you who was once lost.

The cycle of peace, cycle of hope, are cycles of God to embrace.

The cycle of sanctification, cycle of breakthrough, are cycles of God’s restoration.

Beloved of God, in the cycles of life  “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”(Romans 8:28)
