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 many a nation.

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)

THE RITE OF WRITING & MORE, HOMAGE TO MY SOURCE & FIXER.

 

“You can fix anything but a blank page just start writing.”
I received an email with this quote.

In a Christian context and with a Christian mindset I would say I cannot fix anything including a blank page to be honest.

I used to think I could fix things myself, and it was not because I was trained in DIY techniques nor think that I had a natural creative flair in relation to physically putting things together. Also it was not because I thought I was gifted with an abundance of wisdom to transform things, people or life in general.

Such a mindset developed not consciously but subconsciously rooted I believe in the carnal fallen nature of self dependence and a tendency to control and manipulate situations for a self satisfied outcome.

But when I came to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, I gradually realised that everything I personally tried to fix or concoct without Christ being at the centre, although it may have looked perfect on the outside would in no time result in pain and heartache or not bear godly fruit.

Likewise in my writing life, I have noticed a blank page will stay blank or sprawled with my own facts, details and stories if I have not spent quality time with my heavenly Father consistently. I give glory to God that my call to write remained private for a good number of years before it became very public after which there was no holding me back!!

Privately, I learnt to write daily devotionals, words of encouragement from God to me personally and prophecies I did not feel compelled to show anyone but to pray about so that they would come to fruition. I learnt to discern increasingly God’s voice and to distinguish it from other voices including my own. I also enjoyed preparing for my cell group meetings. While I wrote out my thoughts, reflections and questions for the group, I always did so only after a time of prayer and worship surrendering the whole cell meeting to God and yielding to Him to direct me to His choice of scriptures to use. God is my source of inspiration and wisdom in ministry as in every area of my life.

In my writing ministry, I perceive God as the writer, the poet or the “Word-Smith”, and I am His “Pen”. As His “Pen”, I am His vessel of inspiration to me first and then through me to others. I am still learning to yield more and more daily in every area of ministry to God’s prompting and voice.

Through Christ, God is reconciling the world back to himself and as believers in Christ we are commissioned to do likewise in the power of the Holy Spirit. This is how powerful we are in whatever ministry we engage in for Christ and that includes writing.

May we give ourselves wholeheartedly to every ministry stream we are called to whether it is writing, evangelism, preaching or feeding the hungry for our Almighty God is ever present and working through His people in all these areas.

It is my personal belief and I state that from experience that believers in Christ need to stay constantly tuned in to God for inspiration and not only through bible study, prayer and singing praises but also by being attentive to events around them and in the world at large.

Why? This is because God speaks through everything or situations around us and this includes people’s actions, nature and the world as a whole. Praying for spiritual gifts is very important because a writer needs to sharpen their sensitivity to God which includes their ability to hear from Him as to what He wants them to write about among other things.

After all Jesus said that He only did what he saw the Father doing and that the works he did were not his own for the Father who sent Him was doing the works. As a born again Christian writer my confession is the same as that of Christ; I set my gaze on God daily so that He takes absolute control and works through me which includes fixing things and the blank page.
