Learn to discern prophecy – its crucial!

Dear Friends~

I have received a couple of prophesy’s in my life. One of the best prophecies I received was from a stranger. When he spoke to me it was as if God Himself spoke to me and I felt the words that he spoke fall into my spirit, it was exhorting and encouraging me so much!!! I had been going through a terrible trial in my life. I sat in my car and without a word cried out to God for help. There was no way that you could see what is going on inside of my spirit by only looking at my face. I was just asking silently, helplessly… Suddenly somebody knocked on my window and the miracle happened – I got a very specific and timely Word… Somebody received an unction from the Holy Spirit to minister to me. He was obedient!!! No, it was not a pastor… It was one of His Prophets. It has been many years since then and each time I think back on it, I am still amazed and thankful for what Father God did for me. This Divine Appointment encouraged or inspired me to do my utmost for other people when they need it most.

What happened to me is out of the ordinary. The church teaches us that we should only accept prophesies from well known and accredited prophets in the church. This is the safe route to follow, but I think the main focus of any church should be that we should LEARN TO DISCERN, not judge the people bringing the Word.

1) Judge the prophecy by the Word, don’t judge the messenger!

There is different levels in the prophetic and scripture is some of the safest means. I said ONE OF THE SAFER means, because ironically you get fellow christians that like to bible punch other christians with scripture. They normally have critical spirits (they are not even aware of this), and they then send people scripture to get them to “repent” – many times all this comes down to is psychic attacks. While scripture is the Word of God, it can be pulled out of context and hurt people so much that they draw into themselves or run to other places of acceptance that is less painful but damaging to their souls. Scripture is meant to edify, teach, give direction and correct people, BUT ALWAYS WITH SINCERE LOVE. Yes, very key – be SINCERE and without personal agenda’s.

2) An uneasy feeling in your spirit – no peace.

You stand before the Lord with an expectant clean heart and you have no fear, or any other negative emotion involved when receiving a prophecy. You experience a “knowing” that this person is missing it. You experience it where your spirit man is, just below your rib cage. It feels like a shock there. It is the same place where you experience butterflies when you are in love, but in this case it will feel sad or heavy. Many people or prophets don’t mean to prophecy incorrectly – bear in mind that they might have interpreted a vision incorrectly. They might have heard things about you and “added” on what their thoughts about you are, meaning good many times or trying speaking life over you when God has not told them specifically too. Another possibility is that they are giving you the word out of season, not the correct time. There are so many reasons for this!! Bottomline, people make mistakes, and it is better to leave prophetic words like these on the shelf until some other seasoned person speak them over your again, or until you feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit.

3) You experience an absolute Peace and Joy!

You will feel the Joy at the same place but it will be positive and you will feel excited, because there is a supernatural knowing that this is exactly what God has in store for you – confirmed through another person! This is also the time when most callings are established because God speaks your potential over you! He tells you why He created you, He encourages you and showers His Superior Unconditional Love over you!

3) Take your prophetic word to a seasoned christian that also hears the voice of God.

Do NOT take your prophecy to somebody that might have jealousy towards you! Make sure that you can trust this person 100% – you don’t want ungodly words spoken over something meant to be so special. Pray about the prophesy. Do warfare with it! Ask Father God to commission His Angels to help you fulfill His Will and His purpose for you!!

4) What to do if you suspect that your Word was incorrect.

It might NOT be incorrect, but it may be a different season! Pray through this. You might also experience a heavy feeling if the time is not right for the fulfilment of your prophecy, because you have only received the seed of the Word and it has not grown into fruitation yet. Put it on the shelf and wait for a second word of confirmation. Stay with with the first Word of God that you DID witness with.

5) Does the person prophecy have Love in their eyes? (possible guideline)

What did you feel when they spoke to you? It is helps to discern a Word if you are able to look into a person’s eyes. This is the place where you will be able to see the best if they resemble Love. This is very important. The intention that the person has when they prophecy over you, because words are powerful tools. Prophets specifically needs to be specifically mindful what they say about people. We are there to build up and exhort and not to break down. We are all made in God’s image!

Stay blessed – till next time! Remember to display Love at every occasion possible!

Power in prophetic declarations – move your mountain~

Hi Friends~

Have you ever felt a Godly unction (or anointing) rising up inside of your spirit and you instinctively knew you have been given the authority to change things in the spirit? Enough was enough! It is almost as if you spontaneously knew that you carried more authority in the spirit than at other times? Prophetic utterances are words that carry a lot more substance and manifestation power than any other normal words. The reason for this is because it is inspired by the Holy Spirit.

I just love the inspiring story of the young David fighting the seemingly invincible Goliath. He made a proclamation and the Lord helped him! For your convenience and easy reading, I pasted the scripture below:

1 Samuel 17:45-47
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord ‘s, and he will give you into our hand.”

Wow – it is powerful! “This day”…. Immediately after David spoke something started taking form in the spirit!

Very Important – Something to think about before we continue:

There is always witnesses in the spiritual realm. We must be very careful with our words and especially our prophetic declarations. There is not one word that gets wasted in the spiritual realm. Angels are ready and waiting for you to utter a prophetic declaration. Angels are agents and messengers of God, there are different ranks and different function angels. They can bring your blessings, protect you, minister to you and do a lot more things (depends on which angel has been commissioned). Unfortunately the contrary is also true: Demons are also waiting to hear any negative words that you declare so that they can bring destruction.

The Bible also speaks of a cloud of witnesses that sees our deeds on earth.

Prophetic declarations normally go hand in hand with a greater faith level at the time.

1) Prophetic declarations can be scripture.

God’s Word never returns to Him void! Father God is bound by His own Word, the Bible. He will not promise anything that He will not do. It is us that can quote God’s Word out of context, then it will not work. You can not use this to pray soulish prayers over somebody, this may bring a curse over you – BE WARNED. God is not mocked. Whatever a person sowes he will reap. This is a serious form of witchcraft.

If you use God’s Word to speak blessings over yourself, another person or situation out of uncontaminated Love, then it is a good indication that it is Father’s divine will. Expect a miracle or a powerful testimony! It will surely happen! There is no stronger emotion that will facilitate breakthroughs than Love. God is Love!!! He WANTS to bless and help you!

2) Prophetic declarations can include prophetic actions.

A good example of this is blowing a shofar! What is your intention at the time? To declare a new season? To declare warfare in the heavenlies and release warfare angels? Did you blow the shofar to wake other intercessors up? What is your purpose with the prophetic action.

3) Corporate prophetic declarations

Where a group of people agree/unite on the same goal.

4) Prophetic declarations establishes, it bring forth things that do not exist yet.

It makes a way in the desert for you!

Mark 11:23
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Romans 4:17
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

5) Prophetic declarations for protection.

This is especially good when you or your loved ones are under severe spiritual attack.

6) Prophetic declarations over received prophecies.

It is always a good idea to “seal” the prophecies that you have received over your life. You can declare that you place everything under the Blood of Jesus. You can then make declarations that it WILL happen – you declare that you intend to do all you can from your side as well to make sure that the prophecies come into fulfillment

7) Prophetic declarations for healing and miracles.

Declare and fight in the Spirit and declare yourself and loved ones healed. Declare their financial breakthroughs! Declare your business a success!

8) Prophetic declarations start with the words:

I command…
I declare…
I proclaim…
I decree…

May I do prophetic declarations over you? If not, leave the page now… I will continue below:

Father thank you that I can declare each person on this site ABUNDANTLY BLESSED! I command their circumstances come in line with the purposes that You have for them! I proclaim that they will reach their highest calling in you, no matter what they are seeing in the natural today! I command their personal storms to be still. I decree that they will receive everything that they need to fulfil their calling – ABUNDANT finances, good health, good jobs, business opportunities, revelation, divine connections, open doors, miracles and wonders according to their faith levels, trustworthy and loving friends and family, and a lot more. I declare they will move in Your perfect divine timing! I proclaim the enemy fled (spiritual enemy), I proclaim the demonic attacks in their lives defeated, I declare that the demons must stop their attacks and go to the feet of the Lord Jesus Christ to receive judgement. I proclaim that the Blood of the Lamb is over them and that they are released to a new level of spiritual growth! I decree that they will be able to see, hear, feel and experience the Holy Spirit, the Lord Jesus and Father God clearly!! I proclaim that you will sharpen their spiritual gifts to Your Glory only! I proclaim and decree that they will have nightly dreams and visions that will supernaturally point them in the right direction where You want them to go! I command and call the previously impossible for them to become possible for them! I declare they will be a testimony for you and a beacon of hope for other people. THANK YOU – in the Mighty Name of our Lord Jesus Christ! All Glory and All honour to You alone!

Hearing the Voice of God clearly – it is POSSIBLE and natural!

Dear Friends,

It is very natural to hear Father God’s Voice! You hear His Voice already, but might unsure if it is really Him speaking to you. How can a Holy God, (that created the whole universe) be interested in you, a small human being with so much “sin” in your life? By the way – we ALL sin, even if we try our best.

He is smitten with you – He loves you so much that He is using many forms of communication to be able to speak to you. I pray right now, that each of you reading this blog will be come more spiritually hungry by the day! I pray that you will have the special relationship of hearing His Voice on a daily/hourly/second basis!

Before we get to the “steps” of hearing Gods voice! God speaks to each individual differently and their level. He speaks in ways that we understand. This blog is only a guideline to assist you. How many times do you recall that God spoke to you? Did somebody else approach you and said that God wants to speak to you? Or that God is calling you into ministry or to work for him where you are?

1) Scripture

Scripture IS THE VOICE OF GOD – the whole Bible was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. This is why you read the Bible and you feel convicted by a certain verse. It is NOT when you ask God for an answer and randomly open the Bible on a verse that will “speak” to you. If you do this you will open yourself up to deception. It is necessary to fill yourself with scripture so that you can find out what pleases the Lord! You learn to build a relationship with Father God by reading scriptures and renewing your mind with His thoughts.

“The secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He will make them know His covenant” (Psalm 25:14)

2) Peace OR NOT HAVING PEACE

If you do not have peace – DO NOT do it! This is one of the strongest ways that the Holy Spirit will lead you. If you have peace about a certain thing, it minimizes your chances of making the wrong decision. One of the problems I had in my life was that I convinced myself that I had peace. In other words, I keep talking myself out of the will of God. This is why I have such dear and loyal christian friends around me – we protect each other and wish for one another’s higher good. They love me enough to make sure that I do not make a mistake. If they also do not have peace about a decision I am making, I wait or pray it through with them! I do the same for them.

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. (Proverbs 11:14-KJV)

3) Word of Prophecy

Many people only take prophecy’s from well known people. I had some of my best prophesy’s from unknown people.
The reason why a person should not accept just any word that is spoken over you, is that words carry power. What you say is what you get. It is considered safer to receive words from a reputable prophet(ess) and a person that you can see the character and spiritual life of.

The key is to TEST the prophecy – is it scriptural? Do you feel exhorted, refreshed and full of new vision after receiving a prophecy? What does your pastor and friends say about the prophecy? Do they agree about what has been said to you? Do not act hastily on a prophecy – a word of prophecy will normally be confirmed.

Important: Prophecies with the same thread, more regularly, can be an indication that the time of the fulfillment of your prophecy is drawing near.

I can write a blog just on how to test prophecy, and will do that at a later stage to help some of you.

4) Dreams

This is another subject on its own. Sometimes the Holy Spirit reaches into our subconscious and speak to us with symbols. You get different types of dreams. The dreams where you literally dream of something and it happens exactly like that is a prophetic dream and is a lot more scare’s than the other dreams.

5) Confirmation of your thoughts through friends

You intend to discuss a certain subject with one of your friends, and before you have a chance to express what you are thinking they might be bringing it up. Example: They might start conversation about a article that you have been reading, without any knowledge about you even reading anything OR you have been thinking of buying a house, and they just mention: “Don’t you think it is time for you to buy a house?” They express your thoughts. Father God might have promised you a house and may show you that it is time that He will provide for you. This true especially in ministry. A person can not generalize this as God speaking, but this MIGHT be a pointer that Father wants to speak to you concerning a certain direction you should take with your life or that you should learn OR DO something. A person must be very sensitive to the spirit not to miss anything out. Serving God is a huge privilege and an adventure!

6) Visions

You or somebody else might receive a specific vision for your life and it might be the answer to something that you are struggling with in life. Again – Father can speak very clear and specifically or He can speak in symbols.

7) Writing down ideas and prayers

Many a spiritual vision has started with a seed (idea) and was watered with prayer and seeking Father for strategy!

Hope this blessed you all, because this is only a few examples of hearing God’s Voice – He is so awesome and Big and has such great plans for you – BELIEVE IT!!!

The divine purpose of your life – you CAN reach it!

Destiny – the divine purpose for your life! How do you reach it? Is there a specific recipe to follow? Here is a few guidelines that you consider…. But the bottomline is that you have to listen to the Voice of the Holy Spirit, that inner unction and try to add value to other peoples lives by doing what you do best!!!

1) PROPHETIC WORDS OVER YOUR LIFE

Have you ever received a prophetic word over your life? If not, it will be a good opportunity now to start thinking of getting one. By suggesting this, I am not asking you to request one from me (it will be great if you do!!!). The best way to do this is to react to the unction of the Holy Spirit. To explain it like this: listen to your feelings and what “feels right”, then choose the person that you feel led to approach. Alternative, go to a church where the gifts operate on a regular basis and trust Father God to give you a Word of Direction for your life.

There is always a thread or a clue in each of the prophecies that you have received over your life.

a) Very important Prayerfully submit these prophesies to people you trust . DO NOT read your prophecies to people that are jealous of you or do not have the same faith level as you. Always read/show this to somebody that is seeking your higher good. Jealous people can put stumbling blocks in your way and delay your breakthroughs, even if they don’t intend to do so!

b) Test these prophetic words against the Bible! A prophecy will not tell you to do anything that is against any spiritual law.

c) You will normally feel encouraged after a prophecy, even if there was a rebuke. Prophets only rebuke people after God has warned these people themselves several times and can act as a last warning from God to stop doing things that are hurting others (AND YOURSELF). Father God is extremely loving and will always forgive you if you ask forgiveness with a sincere heart. Please dont see Father God in the wrong way. He loves you more and and a thousand times more intense than any human being is able to do. He wants you to excel and be the wonderful person he created you to be.

d) A prophetic word will normally confirm what you already know, but can uluminate this for you so that you recognize the value of your spiritual and natural gifts.

e) A prophetic word can bring healing over your life so that you can be restored to the perfect human being you have been, before all the hurts and cares of life started wounding you! An example of this: You might have an inferiority complex and receive a Word from God that you are called to be a leader. The prophetic word in this instance will set you free and you will know your true calling as a leader and not somebody that must sit in somebody else’s shadow!

I will write a new blog specifically on prophecy at a later stage.

2) TALENTS

Look at what talents you have – can you play piano? What spiritual gifts do you have? Do you have discernment? Example: Somebody is very friendly to you but you mistrust them for no specific reason. You later find out that they have been molesting children. This is your discernment at work.

What did you excel in when you where around 14 or 15? This is a very good indication of what potential is locked up inside you.

You have a responsibility to use your spiritual gifts and talents. Do not shy away from your purpose!!! You will be the happiest being your OWN SELF – doing what YOU do best. You are anointed in your OWN destiny – now, build yourself up with enough faith!!! Nothing will be impossible for you! It is NEVER to late to return to who you really are and what God has called you for.

3) WHO ARE THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU

Are you around people in the ministry and desire to do the same things as what they are? Who do you look up to? Who do you identify yourself with? Who do you NOT want to be? Al these are clues!

Are you attracted to people that do healing, ie doctors or counselors? It might be that you see yourself in them.

Try and surround yourself with people that are not threatened by your successes. Don’t surround yourself with people looking down on you – that is the other tip of the scale. Associate yourself with people that really care for you and love you. Mix with people with integrity and people that you can respect. Mix with people that make you excited about life!!!

Listen what these people say about you. In a safe relationship you will have the liberty to ask somebody where they see you in society. You will be surprised what you will hear. You’ll never know what you mean to somebody unless they tell you. Be open to loving criticism AND praise! Try to learn about your “outer self”…

4) LOVE YOURSELF

Love yourself AND others. There is many events that has gone down in history where people chose to lay down their lives for their fellow man and then became legends! Jesus Christ loved us so much that He chose to lay down His life for us! We should follow His example. Be selfless when it comes to our Higher Purpose but also love ourselves enough that we will not miss our divine purpose that we have been lovingly created with.

5) PRAY AND BELIEVE~

Have unwavering, miracle-producing faith! Inspire other people with your faith! Move the mountains! It IS possible! God wants you to be prosperous and in abundance of everything! Abundance of Love, Friends, Money, EVERYTHING!!! Pray without ceasing!

Hope this blessed you – Lots of Love!

Psychic Attacks

WHAT ARE PSYCHIC ATTACKS

The term “Psychic Attack” is very difficult to describe, thus for a lack of better words: it can be described as a curse in the form of a thought. It is when people harbor ill feelings toward you and project it towards you either consciously or unconsciously. The thoughts can be so strong that it can affect you, your family and even your animals in a negative way. It will become more intense when people add words to their thoughts and agree with each other against you. (Think about this before you gossip about somebody again.)

WHAT HAPPENS

Everything starts as a seed in the spiritual realm before it will manifest as something real here on earth. That’s the reason why the Bible says we must guard our thoughts AND WORDS.

Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

It is possible to be a Christian and to experience psychic attacks. It is also possible to be on the receiving end of “friendly fire” – this means that it could be other Christians that are targeting you. Just because people are Christians it does not mean that they are perfect, they are still human. It can come from any religion or even people that do not believe that these things exist.

Most attacks happen unconsciously or because people are ignorant about it. Conscious attacks are evil and will not only harm the receiver of the evil intent, but also the person sending it. This is based on the spiritual law of sowing and reaping.

Gal 6:7-9 KJV
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

WHY DO PEOPLE ATTACK YOU

They may do this for a number of reasons of which I will only name a few:

1) They are plainly jealous of you for whatever reason:

a) They want the same spiritual gifts as you – gift of prophecy is a perfect example of this, but it can be any spiritual gift.
b) They want YOUR position in the church (Professional jealousy)
c) They want a successful business. (If yours is successful and theirs not).
d) You might be living out your calling being in God. You have Godly favor.
e) You accept and love other people and therefore have a lot of friends, which they do not have.
f) They are your “friends” but want to be superior to you (it makes them feel better from an inferiority complex). They harbor wishes of failure towards you in their hearts.
g) It is a “black sheep” person in a family that feels left out. They feel that somebody else in the family is stealing their love/favor/respect away. It can be competition for a parents love.

2) They have different values or view points and would like to force you into alignment with how they think – Example: They would like you to judge other religions harshly, ignore or behave in a disrespectful way (Are we not supposed to love ALL people – no matter what race or religion, whether we agree or not?)

3) Opposite spirits – When people are evil and they see others do good, they tend to despise this as weakness and throw hate towards them. Some people just hate others for no specific reason!

4) VERY IMPORTANT – some people suffer from rejection without you offending them in any way. They are open to misunderstandings. It is important to identify this and to have compassion on them and to act in the opposite spirit (shower them with love)

The above examples are very incomplete (this blog is about getting OUT of a psychic attack) and I would appreciate it if you could send in any questions that you might have in this regard. It is important to me to be able to do a more thorough discussion at a later stage.

CONSIDER WHY YOU ARE UNDER ATTACK – HAVE YOU WRONGED ANYONE?

Look at yourself FIRST – do introspection. Carefully consider if you also had a part to play. In the case of jealousy: did you brag about something? Look what happened to Joseph in the Bible. Did you do this to try and earn their respect/approval/validation? Did you make them feel inferior in the process? Did you by ANY means hurt anybody. That alone will open you up to being attacked yourself.

SYMTOMS

1) Feeling tired and depleted of energy constantly and for no reason.
2) Lack of concentration and no ability to complete easy tasks.
3) You get thoughts that is not your own – examples: “you will fail”, “you are a terrible person – you do not deserve this blessing on your life”, “people do not really love you – they are false”. There are many more examples like these!
4) Physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea, stomach cramps.
5) Confusion and forgetfulness.
6) Depressed for no reason!
7) Thinking of the person constantly and “knowing” that they are harboring ugly thoughts towards you.
8) You feel watched.
9) You can get sexually aroused (depending what type of attack and where it comes from – you will need to ask discernment from the Holy Spirit on this, or ask a spiritual mature person to assist you with this).

PROTECTION FROM PSYCHIC ATTACKS.

1) Prayer, praise and prayer!
2) Always walk in forgiveness – be first!
3) Do NOT retaliate and pray soulish prayers back to “punish” the person or to ask Father God to do them harm. It is called charismatic witchcraft and is VERY wrong. Rather pray that the Lord Jesus draws them to Him with cords of Love. Pray for revelation of who Christ is and pray 1 Cor 13 into their lives. Love is more likely to make any person repent.
4) Do not gossip about the guilty parties, show yourself as a better person and speak life and blessings over them. Speak over them what you would like for yourself.
5) Act in the opposite spirit, always be polite and loving, even if you have to bite on your teeth in the process. It becomes easier the more you practice this.
6) Pray that THEY will be protected from this sin, because they will always receive more back of what they sow.
7) Remain Joyful – the Joy of the Lord is your strength!
8) Don’t LOOK for psychic attacks and focus all your attention on such negativity. Do “spring cleaning” when you feel necessary, but your focus should be on God and your divine purpose not others.
9) Hide behind the Cross and the Blood of Jesus, pray aloud and bind any demons that might have been sent to you.
Hope this blessed you! Lots of Love and Joy to you!!
