BREAKTHROUGH @ CHRISTMAS TIME

countdown                      

Christmas time again!!!!

For many, a time of looking at advertising brochures (especially the children looking at the gifts they want), a time of spending more money than we intended, a time of eating more than we should (the main culprits usually been the Christmas mince pies, Christmas cake, Christmas puddings and the ever guilty Christmas lunch), and for some a time of rushing and working long and tiring hours.

But for us as Christians, our spiritual association of Christmas is with the Birth of Jesus

(forget about if it is the right or wrong date, that is not the debate here) (refer to my blog post: It is Christmas Time).

As Christians, during this season, we take time out to reflect on the Birth of Jesus as the Miracle of the Christmas.

Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus

See Luke 1:26-35

But as is true with the entire Bible, there are multiple revelations of one event, everyone revealing a new truth in God and His Word.

God recently showed me a revelational side of Christmas I had never in the 22 years of being saved, ever discovered.

This key can be found in Luke 1 v 34:

“Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”

We have read this line so many times over the years of Christmas and never connected Christmas with the key to breakthrough in our lives.

We know Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit, and in our minds, we immediately jump to v 35:

Luke 1 v 35

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

And we miss the importance of “how shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”

Having had a year where God told us we needed to “break every chain” in the Spirit, we’ve had to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us during every meeting, on every camp, for every conference, in every situation we found ourselves in to be able to find the Godly key to breaking that particular stronghold we found ourselves in at that time.

God told me many people are trusting God for a Breakthrough in certain areas of their lives. But they are looking in the natural as to where the door is going to open. Or more accurately, they are looking for the “right” person, or the “right” connection or the “right” network to open doors for them. And that their breakthrough is not going to come through the “right”. Jer 17 v 5 tells us if we are not looking to God to bring about our breakthrough, but we are looking to the “right” to bring about our breakthrough, we actually open ourselves to a curse.

Jer 17 v 5

5 Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man, and makes flesh his strength and whose heart departs from the LORD (NKJV)

Your breakthrough is only going to come through the “Godly solution” of “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee”

God is saying:

“Your breakthrough is only coming through My Spirit. I will open the doors for you in ways you have not been able to reason out. Be faithful and trust Me. I will bring the breakthrough you need by My Spirit”.

Encouraging Scriptures

James 4 v 10

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Zec  4 v 6

6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.

Ps 75 v 6+7

6  For exaltation comes neither from the east Nor from the west nor from the south.

7  But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another.

Is 43 v 19

19  Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.

We wish all of you a Wonderful Blessed Christmas and may your time with your Family and Friends be blessed!

Remember: It is the Goodness of God that leads people to repentance. So let’s share the goodness of God in this season that is focussed on the Birth of His Son.

BREAKTHROUGH – BY CHANGING THE SEED YOU SOW!

Hi Guys!!!

This is a 20 minute message I shared at a recent Breakthrough Fire Conference we hosted!

Many of us are repeatedly reaping cycles in our lives that we do not enjoy, such as anger, bitterness, resentments, judgments, strife and division. If you do not like what you are reaping, change your seed. If you do not like what you are reaping, change your seed.

I look forward to hearing some positive testimonies from the change of fruit in your life!

God Abides to His own Word in 1 Corinthians 13

Whilst on vacation, we recently spent an evening on a jetty fishing with our kids.

While we witnessed a beautiful blue sunset,

we were having much fun taking photographs and making family videos.

The result: My 1st Video blog!

I recorded this post on a small handheld 8px camera held in my right hand in the dark with my son providing the lighting by torch on a moving jetty…what fun!!!


My video posts will be short, 1 minute nuggets, so I look forward to doing more!

GOD REJECTED JESUS TO LOVE ME!

Well, what a week it has been! From glory to glory and all I can say is ” Thank you Jesus that you love me enough to die for me and make available to me all the benefits of your resurrection power”

I’ve been sitting under the anointing in the “Days of Glory” conference in East London.

On Saturday night, Apostle Maldonaldo taught on “Fathers“. I had a blessing as a Father, but knowing God can do anything if you open your heart, I said to God, deal with whatever you want to. I just want your presence!

I fell to my knees and started sobbing the presence of God was so strong!

I’ve been battling with a relationship in my life where I have been blatantly rejected repeatedly over and over. Every couple of months I have an outburst and then I bring it back to the cross and ask God to take care of it. This time He did.

After writing the post “It is Finished”, I’ve been bringing a lot of areas to closure in my life and this was one of the areas I’d asked God to deal with because it was just to big for me to deal with.

That Saturday night, He gave me “revelational” knowledge about what happened on the cross. He told me He rejected Jesus when He turned away from looking at him. And my heart cried “Why?” And He said because Jesus was covered in sins, and sin cannot stand in God’s presence! I mentally knew all this, but it was still a reality that I was rejected, and now, so was Jesus, and at that point, in my perspective, we were both STILL rejected! I still missed Gods point!

But the picture changed as fast as the thoughts were going through my mind and I saw God turning His face away from Jesus on the cross, and in slow motion, the space that He was looking towards started been illuminated and I saw God looking at me.

It took a couple of minutes and God said to me, “I rejected my Son because I chose to accept you” and once again the reality that I got chosen above Jesus in that day, just broke me, and healed me in the same instant.

I got up off the floor and I knew the Spirit of Rejection was broken over me forever. Never to ever raise its head again because God rejected His Son to accept ME!

Now I’m not just healed, I am made whole!

Thank you Jesus!

OUR INHERITANCE

Jesus says “In my Father’s House are many mansions…” John 14v2

Have you ever considered your Inheritance in heaven before? Many times because of our natural world we loose sight of the fact that our Spiritual Inheritance is different to our natural inheritance. When we are left an inheritance in the natural, it is divided according to the wishes of the Deceased, so all mentioned in the (dreaded) WILL have the portion allocated to them as the Deceased indicated.

Jesus say in His Father’s House are many mansions…yeah, how does that affect me?

With God, our inheritance is MULTIPLIED, not DIVIDED! Everyone gets a mansion. No selling this mansion to split the money to avoid one getting more than another!
With this inheritance, we each get our God inheritance. No dividing, no fighting for “more incase I loose out here” concept…

Is this not enough reason to share Jesus with more people as it does not limit God’s inheritance to me! They get exactly the same as me!

Love, is it worth walking through

Love is a verb. It is very easy to love someone who is good to you, but it is very difficult to love someone who has hurt you or continually hurts you. Having had my nose in these few verses over and over for the last 7 years, it is starting to make a little more practical sense, but a lot of the work first had to be sorted in my own heart. I have not perfected the art of loving those who don’t love me, but I am doing better at identifying when I am not acting in love, and it suprises me how easy it is to act “not according to the love guidelines” even towards those closest to me. Meditate on these one phrase at a time and I will discuss how I got through them as the blog grows.

1 Cor 13:4-7Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
(from THE MESSAGE: The Bible)
