Child of God, your God given image is who you are and it is not negotiable – unalterable internally or externally in order to please or fit into the status quo – quite frankly say to those who want to redesign or re-define you “accept me as a unique masterpiece of the creator or let’s wave each other goodbye; “accept me as I am & respect me as I do you or dump me, your choice”!
This morning, I was reading Job 29 and after reading verse 15 I felt led to pause and received this prophetic word from the LORD:
Job 29:15 Job said “I was eyes to the blind,and feet was I to the lame”
I heard the LORD say “Oh that my people would be eyes to the blind and feet to the lame, the helping hand to those who cannot hold a compass nor a lamp to find their way.
Where shall I find such as put away their agenda and seek to fulfill my call on their lives – the mission I have entrusted to them from the beginning of time.
The day is as night and men grope fearfully, distrusting one another, race wars, gender wars have spilled forth into the earth to overflowing. The gun and knife are as play things, toys in the carnival of life!
Awake! Rise up, do not sleep says the LORD. Those on the mission field, prepared for this time beware of the blinding and maiming powers, the forces of distraction that put my people to sleep, that stump on their compassion and zeal to serve.
Awake! Intercessors, voices of justice and peace Awake!

Father I pray for myself and stand in the gap for the church and anyone who has grieved your spirit in these areas you mention in the prophecy.
Forgive us your people who have fallen short. We acknowledge where we have erred; more self focused rather than seeking you first so as to fulfil what you prioritise – care and help towards the needy and vulnerable. We ask that you change our hearts and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Help us in our weakness LORD for we can do nothing nor change our ways without your help. We cry out for the world and seek to be agents of change, world transformers by the enabling might of the Holy Spirit.
Father, use us as your vessels, give us ideas and strategies where we can make a difference in relation to issues that grieve your heart (e.g. the poor/needy, race and gender conflicts). Teach us LORD to be a voice, your voice in the midst of a world flooded with injustice and contention.
We acknowledge that you have been working in our personal lives and in the nations and give you praise and thanks, however Father we pray for the mantel of intercession for issues on your agenda to increase upon your church and revive as anew with the compassion of Christ for the sake of our predestined mission and calling.
In Jesus name we pray Amen.
This month of October until December begins the winding down of 2017 as it were the shutting of the door to 2017 and an entry into the door of 2018.
Be reminded that It is The Lord God who closes doors and sets an open door before you that no man can shut, so this entry in 2018 is His open door or new season through which if only you will seek & trust Him will lead you into His divine purposes.
These next three months are therefore a time to take stock of this year and be sensitive to what He is saying you must do in these final months which if heeded to will affect events positively in 2018, for while The Lord can do it without you, He chooses for you to partner with Him as a God of relationship. God is always calling us higher, to places of greater intimacy and depth in Him (Rev 4:1) and has told us to call on Him (Jer 33:3). Our being called by Him and being asked to call on Him is so that God, a God of communication and love will show us mysteries/things we do not know for He wants us to know the signs of the times and things that He plans to do.
God called Abraham His friend and so decided to tell Him in advance when He was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. It is just as well because Abraham could intercede for Lot. This shows the importance of those who are friends of God hearing from him for someone’s life including their own could be saved because He trusts them enough to share what is on His heart with them.
Christ Yeshua said to his disciples then and is saying to those who are now:
“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15:15 KJV). Thus those who qualify to be friends of The Lord are the obedient ones as Abraham was and are rewarded with the gift of revelation or knowing his secrets/mysteries.
It is therefore not too early for you, a “friend” of The Lord to start thanking Him for what He has done and is about to do nor seek The Lord in prayer for revelation and His wisdom concerning 2018 in relation to your plans whether they are in alignment with His for you or what He wants to share with you I.e world, family or individual issues ahead as well as insight into the enemies strategies.
Those who delight in The Lord will have the desires of their heart. May He grant you all your desires according to His perfect will. Have a blessed week ahead
Ask God for “eye salve”(supernatural means to overcome spiritual blindness) so you can “see” (discern) the wolves in sheeps’ clothing or the beast’s prime agents in the high places…unless of course you can see, but prefer to pretend all is well, or you prefer to stay in the “land of oblivion”.
Choose to see things as they truly are and indeed as a disciple of Christ, you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
God will open your spiritual eyes, give you revelation; (wisdom, knowledge and understanding) so as to pray according to God’s will and be always alert and attentive to His warning.
May the LORD gift us with greater insight and the gift of discerning of spirits in this generation of escalating wickedness and evil.
