Blessed are you if you believe God’s Word

imagesI read the account of Mary the mother of Jesus visiting Elizabeth her cousin. Elizabeth, on hearing Mary’s testimony of what the Angel Gabriel told her which is that she will give birth to Jesus Christ, replied as follows

“…blessed [is] she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” (Luke 1:45 KJV)

Elizabeth’s reply brought to memory incidents in my own life when God had spoken to me and I believed what He said. I acted and looking back, I can see how He has confirmed each Word.

One such testimony is when I relocated to England fifteen years ago purely based on a personal word spoken to me by God the Father as I sat in a prophetic conference in the UK listening to a prophet speak.

On my return to Geneva where I lived at the time, by faith I stopped the process of buying a flat and handed in my notice at work and I also wrote a letter ending my tenancy agreement. I therefore started preparing myself to relocate to the UK. Family and friends thought I was either mad or my faith in God was being taken to unreasonable proportions and they were very worried about me. When I told them I was going to bible school (this gateway came to me a few days later) and well after that I did not know what God had planned for me, but I trusted Him, they were even more convinced there was something wrong with me!

I had a good and stable job, great friends and was planted in a local church in this affluent European city of Geneva where many, even in the UK would give up everything to relocate to – wasn’t that enough, surely I was already abundantly blessed, many thought.

My father also tried to talk me out of relocating, he asked “can’t you do a bible correspondence course? you don’t have to go all the way to the UK!”. But as much as I love my father, my heavenly Father’s command was what I felt compelled to obey.

Friends and family did not understand. I had to be obedient and trust God because I was certain He had spoken to me. His voice was like thunder, loud and audible within me and repetitive as He told me He wanted me in “this nation” (the UK).
“The voice of the LORD [is] upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD [is] upon many waters….The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.” (Ps. 29:3,7 KJV)

I had a Suisse lawyer who I discerned by her rhetoric with a raised voice at times, was offended that I should leave the “best” city in the world to live in London. I thought “Well, how ever highly she thought of Geneva in comparison to London was not going to change my mind. I am not interested in documented proof of what she is saying if there is any at all. One thing I will focus on is what God is telling me, which is to relocate to England, London to be precise and that is what I am going to do!”

I literally set my face like flint refusing to budge even when people were trying to discourage me.

I trusted God completely, knowing that He was in absolute control of my life and if He was sending me to England then it was within His predestined plan for my life. My Heavenly Father has a hope and a future for all His children and I was excited and in anticipation of my life ahead.
Abba Father was saying to me as He was to the Israelites:
“I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV)

THE LORD CONFIRMS THE WORDS HE SPEAKS

Sooner or later, if God has truly spoken to you, mark my word, He will confirm it !

“God [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do [it]? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”(Num. 23:19 KJV)

In June of the same year, four months after I was told by the LORD to relocate to the UK, I returned to the UK for another prophetic conference hosted by the same European branch of Christian International ministries that hosted the February conference. By this time I had applied for bible school in the UK to start in the autumn and was awaiting confirmation.

At the end of the conference, during the prophetic ministry time in which each individual receives prophecies from a team of prophets, one of them said to me “within six months you will be relocating geographically to a place where you will be more fruitful… You are a birther, a spiritual midwife, you will birth many things in the body of Christ”.

I praised God that at least someone apart from me had heard from Him that I was to relocate geographically! I would have still relocated even if I had not had this confirmation from an external source but God has a principle which is to confirm and establish His word as follows:

“… In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.” (2 Corinthians 13:1)

Looking back however I must say this prophecy received in June really strengthened my faith to the point that I even arrived in the UK on 31st August, before I received a letter acknowledging receipt of my application or even confirmation of acceptance from the only bible school I applied to that June. I only applied to that one because the LORD had highlighted it to me in March. It is the bible school of a well known church and following my call to move to England in February, I had started getting the name of the church repetitively in mind! I did not know that the church had a bible school, so I just pondered why I was thinking so much about it.
One morning I felt led to call a relative who is a committed Christian in London to tell her of God’s word that I move to England. She listened and then said that she saw me at the bible school of the same church I had been consistently thinking about! This relative is a woman in ministry who had attended another bible school. The fact that she did not even recommend the one she attended but chose the one connected to the church I had in mind confirmed to me without reasonable doubt that the LORD had chosen the gateway to England, which was that specific bible school. Wow what an awesome God we serve !

4The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty. (Psalm 29:4 KJV)

Having settled in a flat outside London, certain I was going to be accepted at the bible school for God is not a man that He should lie, I contacted the Administration office of the bible school during the first week of September. The administrator apologized for the delay which affected all potential students due to a reason beyond her control. She said that my letter of acceptance had been sent to my Geneva address that same week. I asked for a copy to be sent to me at my address in England. I started at the bible school in October full of joy knowing that it was the beginning of a new era in my life.

To God be the glory great things He has done!!

Brothers and sisters I hope you are encouraged by my testimony, indeed over the years in the UK I have seen the faithfulness of God even though there have been some challenges and afflictions. I have not always heard clearly from the LORD and made certain decisions which I later regretted and have had to repent.

God has always been with me and fulfilled several words he spoke to me personally and major prophecies from renowned prophets. As concerns being more fruitful in this land of geographical relocation, I list some of the ways God has made me fruitful here not to boast but to glorify Him who over a fifteen years period has shown Himself to be a God who is absolutely true to His word! I have been involved in
-street evangelism, sharing the gospel and leading people to the Lord or to rededicate their lives.
-discipling and teaching many; some members of my cell group at the time have started their own respectable international ministries and always point to their being birthed into their calling from the time they were in my cell group.
-pioneering and leading intercessory prayer ministry in a local church.
-partaking of local church and conference prophecy and healing ministry teams.

The Lord in 2013 led me to start Bearwitness-Forerunner Ministries Int. from which the Ready Writer Prophetic Scribe Ministry has been birthed. “Daily Manna from on High” is under the Prophetic Scribe Ministry.

In all my experiences I have learnt many things, but one thing that stands out is that as we stay focused on the “one thing” (Ps. 27:4) as David to seek the LORD, dwell in His house and to behold His beauty and enquire from Him, our steps are inevitably ordered by Him. If we believe this we will always be compelled to take steps of faith in the direction in which we feel He is leading us. Even if we make mistakes, He is faithful to painstakingly work things out for our good (Romans 8:28/Isaiah 62) and so steer us back on course.

I therefore encourage you to trust and obey God, when you do you will never be disappointed.

God says “…they Shall not be disappointed that wait for me” (Isaiah 49:23)

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed.

“Rise of A “Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies” Revolution”

I wrote this “Rise of A “Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies” Revolution” below in November 2016. There is truly cause for concern, America is a revelatory window as to why.This is not a time to be complacent or blasé! As it is a time of intensified rise of evil of the kind that promotes hatred & division “wickedness” as according to end time prophecy so it should be a time for God’s generals to call a spade a spade and pray accordingly and with fervency. Prophecy must come to pass, but let’s pray for protection, God’s strength, boldness and supernatural joy in the midst of fear inducing circumstances. 
 Rise of A “Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies” Revolution

Introduction 
While there is a revolution in the land, with people strongly pointing out injustices and being a voice for social equality and justice as never before, so too this is happening in the church. The violence attached to protests in the land is because of anger due to certain events and the fear of the unknown, uncertainty and mistrust. 
In the church there is also a revolution underway by those I feel compelled to call the remnants, the no nonsense pursuers of God, overcomers from their personal tribulations (of the Rev 7:9 type), and as written towards the end of this poem the “triumphant warriors”. These God ordained warriors/remnants are not physically violent unto destruction, but as end time John the Baptist, they are spiritually violent in terms of their building of the Kingdom of God that suffers violence (persecution, affront of the enemy etc…) by way of intercessory prayer, spiritual warfare, vocal expression and strong stand against social inequality and injustices.

Rise of A “Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies” Revolution :

Liars sing to the tune of a shrieking lyre, a deceptive song, claiming to be in the light as leaders, peacemakers, church workers and members of notable fraternities.
They abide in darkness ’cause of hate for their brother of a different mother and father, from a different land altogether, a place much further. 
Delusional and encaged in hollow rage they live in twilight and are sick in their minds ’cause of the deceiver’s dynamite.
They dwell in ancient chambers with hellish ideas of who is who, delighting in the master and slave relational status quo.
The window blinds to their hearts are down. Blind, they think they can see, a walking dead living on dead end street. 
Embossed on their hearts as a badge of honour is hate for another race, one of a foreign land or religion and are chocked with unforgiveness towards their neighbours.
They drown in the sea of hate, spouting venom in divisive hood, beating the drum of falsehood, scheming a race and social war in many a neighbourhood.
Triumphant Warriors are on the rise; some on bended knees, others in action so the world can see, as they fight for God’s love and unity to be man’s keen priority.
Forever destroyers of satanic agendas and judgements, the heavenly regiment sound the Most High’s gong with this redemptive truth in their song:
“Forgive and you shall be forgiven by the Father. Love God and one another, regardless of skin colour, race, social status and one’s gender”.

The power of the prophetic word of God to re-affirm, bring a turn around, give and restore hope.

I preached and ministered prophetically on 29th July 2017 at a women’s conference called “Time to Blossom” hosted by Pastor Henrietta Azah, The Christian Woman Ministry.
My message was “You have what it takes to fulfil your destiny/to blossom. To the glory of God, I highlight some of the feedback I had about the Prophetic words God used me to give mainly to highlight the power of the prophetic word to re-affirm, bring a turn around, give and restore hope. This is in effect an aspect of the healing & transformation of the Body of Christ that we should not under estimate.  

One spoke of her personal call of God in Ministry to children (a prophetic dream someone had about her in children’s ministry prompted her into it many years ago) and she was wanting to give it up for some reasons however I was led to pick her. 

(I did not have time as they were running late so I cut my message short and just picked a few people at random to minister to. It appeared “at random” but God directed me.)

When I did, the Lord spoke into the Ministry with children powerfully to this lady, even words of expansion in this area.

She broke into tears and I sensed she had truly received this word and it completely touched her to the core. This Prophetic Word had affirmed her Ministry and she was encouraged and so will not stop.

The other lady said “you know all the people you picked to prophecy over from this church go to the same home group. I was thinking of leaving that group because of all the negativity! But I think after today there will be a change.

 In fact one of them, an elderly lady (in the same home group) sitting next to me who you called out, prior to you calling her out she said words to the effect that there was no hope to her blossoming at her age (I had also just included in my teaching that blossoming or fulfilling one’s destiny does not have an age limit). But I think there will be change now so I will stay”. I said “praise that you are encouraged enough to stay in your home group now.”

God knew what He was doing when I went around choosing people to prophecy over…God knew the urgency of certain situations and in the limited time, He dealt with them by the might of the prophetic word. 

I am encouraged and blessed to serve the Body in this way!  

You are blessed & highly favoured determine to remain so!

The Word of the LORD:Arise & Shine! 

Introduction: On Saturday 29th July 2017 morning as I was getting ready to teach/minister prophetically at a Women’s conference (theme: Time to Blossom, hosted by Pastor Henrietta Azah of The Christian Woman Ministry) God gave me a prophetic word for the women straight after I read/meditated on Isaiah 60:1-3. While I read it out at the conference, I sense the LORD saying that this prophetic word is for anyone who desires to receive it. So I am sharing it here:


“1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.” (Isaiah 60:1-3 KJV)

It is time to take off the shackles that bind you, to resist the works of the powers of darkness. 

To arise in the realms of God.

To seek Him for His divine purposes in your life.

It is time to blossom says the LORD. 

You have what it takes!

It is time!

Arise and Shine today not tomorrow!

Enter into my purposes.

Seek me for what is yours.

The keys of your destiny await.

The words I have given you as is written in my Book, as is planted in your heart await you.

Listen, know and receive says the LORD!

There are plans to fulfil,

Destinies to take a hold of.

What holds you back? 

Arise in my strength

Arise in my power and receive today.

You have my light, you are the light of the world, a displacer of darkness, a dispenser of my glory, so Arise!!

Listen, know, receive and activate what is yours! Says the LORD your God.

Minister Deborah E. Nyamekye 29th July 2017

The Word of the LORD to the Prayer Warrior


The Word of the LORD to prayer warriors posted (on Facebook) a year ago today is still applicable: 

“Sound the trumpet and proclaim not holding back. I have armed you for strength in the battle. I am with you always and know your heart, ready to do my bidding.
I have projects to unfold, to excite your soul and those you engage with on my behalf. Rest assured faithful one, those with you are more than those who are not. You will never be alone, I have plans for you and plans to impart through you. Sound the trumpet in the land, use the axe at the root, uproot, pull down and rebuild says the Lord who has called you and raised you”

May God bless you as you receive it as a Word for you Amen!

A Prophetic Vision: Salt Shaker…types of salt and saltiness…

saltshakerspic-640x400

In the early hours of the morning of 3rd July 2017, I had a vision of a salt shaker and it had some substance that did not belong within it come up and out of it and remain at the top. This substance looked like salt but it is not. I had a sense that the salt left in the shaker was real salt.

The Church (assembly of believers in Christ) is depicted here as a salt shaker whose contents are called the “Salt of the earth” (Matt.5:13) by Christ.  However there is a shaking going on constantly within this salt shaker by its master or head, Christ. He is doing this shaking constantly for two reasons:

1) Shaking the “salt of the earth” onto the earth for the glory of God. So that the “salt of the earth” are his vessels to impart his Word or teachings in all the earth in the power of the in-dwelling Holy Spirit.  As they fulfill their mission (Matt.28:19-21), their lives bear witness to the Messiah and so are God’s vessels to “flavour” or “season” the evil world’s atmosphere and the lives of individuals with his blessed will and truth.

2) Shaking out all those that have the appearance of the God kind of salt, but are not. These are either those who
a) are counterfeits; non believers in Christ posing as believers for the purpose of attaining elevation and praise from men as well as to create havoc and confusion through sowing seeds of discord and also to teach false doctrine.

b) refuse to repent and turn from their evil ways but assume the title “Christian” because consciously they would like to be, but are unwilling to completely separate themselves from the evil world system. In other words they refuse to live a sacrificial life unto God.

As a result, they finally become exposed by God for who they truly are lest they continue to succeed in contaminating the true salts of the earth. God protects those who are His.  At the end of the age there will be as Christ says (Matthew 25), a final separation of those (Sheep) who have lived according to the will of God even in the way they treat the poor and needy from those who have not (Goat) but before that God is at work exposing the works of the enemy in the midst of the “Salt Shaker” Church as He is at the same time exposing sin within the hearts of “the salt of the earth” who are His (by way of conviction by His Spirit) so that they would respond and be cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

I am reminded of a Word God gave me on 1st July 2016 that starts as follows  “These are times when there shall be a clear distinction between those who are mine and those who are of the Father of lies, even among the congregation”.

Another quote from this same prophetic discourse: “In this final hour before the second coming of our Lord Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords it is a time of exposure of the hidden and masks coming off by the anointing of God, a shaking “shape up or get out” – for our God is a consuming fire. Woe to those who take Him continuously for granted. His House or Kingdom is not a circus for games and tricks…”

May we as believers in Christ not lose our “saltiness” or purpose and zeal.

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men”. (Matthew 5:13 KJV).
