2010 has been a unique, powerful and volatile year. A year of purification, transformation and preparation for many. A year where the Lord has been taking His people (the Church) to higher levels of relationship and intimacy with Him. A year where He has been removing obstacles, barriers and opposition that prevents us from going forward with Him. A year where the earth saw natural disasters more volatile than we have ever seen before such as the Haitian and Chilean earthquakes. This was confirmed in last year’s newsletter when the Lord revealed, 2010 will be a significant year for the body of Christ! It will be the year when the Lord will ‘catapult’ us to higher and deeper realms of intimacy in and with Him.
The number ten is a significant number here! As we move from 2009 into 2010, the Lord will take us into a new season, a new realm unlike any we have gone to before! As we cross from the old decade into the new, we will cross over into this new realm! The two are parallel! As we cross over in the natural, we will also cross over in the Spirit and will literally feel the change in our spirit! October, which is the tenth month, will be a significant month for us where the Lord will propel us to a realm in the Spirit with Him that we have never been to before and will be an intensifying of the new realm we will be going into as we enter the New Year! The number ten also speaks of God’s covenant with us (Exo 20:1-26, The Ten Commandments). The Lord will give us a greater revelation of His covenant with us in the person and blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. As a result of this revelation, our relationship with God will deepen and intensify This new realm will involve a deeper experience of God’s presence in intimacy, new manifestations of His presence in our lives, a deeper love for the Lord and awesome breakthrough - miraculous answers to prayer! The transition will become more evident as we draw closer to the end of December 2009 and the beginning of January 2010! The same can be said for the year, 2010 – this transition will become even more evident as we draw closer to the end of December 2010 and the beginning of January 2011! We will see the same shift but in a greater, more intense way! we will literally begin to feel the manifest presence of God on our bodies at certain times and it will not only be in church services but also as we are walking on the street, through a shopping centre, sitting in a train, on a bus or in a car! When we are eating with friends in a restaurant or simply sitting on our couch at home thinking of the Lord! There will be some difficult times! But as we thank, praise and worship the Lord in these situations, His manifest love and presence will embrace us! We will literally feel His presence and we will be filled with His joy! (Richard Pace – Pastor’s Letter, Dec 2010)
This is exactly what has occurred.
“And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Mt 24:4-14, NKJV) In August this year, the Lord gave me a prophetic message which set the scene for the New Year and the years to follow. The Lord said, Between the 14th of August and the 14th of September 2010, a major shift will take place in the spirit realm. This will be a time of purification, transformation and cleansing – a time of preparation for what I am going to do in the coming months from the 14th of August and the following years. I will cause a shift to occur in your attitudes, thought processes, belief systems and behavioral patterns as well as in your lives, families, circumstances, the Church and the world. During this time I will remove obstacles, barriers, chains and everything in your lives that are not of Me, that are preventing you from going deeper with Me and receiving what I have for you. This time of preparation will continue for one month where I will establish new foundations upon which I will do new and greater things. This time of preparation will be different from others. Although there may be some pain involved, it will not be as painful as in the past. On the 14th of September, there will be an explosion in the spirit. You may hear it, you may not. You may feel it, you may not but there will be a change that will occur on that day which will continue to have a significant effect for the months to come. You may hear of a significant explosion that will occur in the natural somewhere in the world to coincide with the explosion that will occur in the spirit. There will be a greater release of My presence, power and grace as well as an increase of My anointing, greater miracles, signs, wonders, manifestations of My Spirit and fulfillment of prophetic promises at this time. These next thirty days are very significant for what I will do in the next twelve months. This will coincide with signs that will occur in the heavens (the sky and space). You will hear of an aligning of two or three planets, the discovery of new planets and anomalies. You will hear of a comet that will pass over a country at this time and you may hear of a solar or lunar eclipse. There will be new, more severe natural disasters that will occur at this time, floods, fires and earthquakes (A shift in the earth’s crust in
certain places). My anointing, power and blessings have been accumulating and at the appointed time, I will release a flood of miracles, blessings, breakthroughs and many of the things I have promised you will come to pass now. Amen and amen. Shortly after this prophecy was given, it was fulfilled. The following day my family heard of a comet that was going to pass over the island of Malta. On the week of Sunday the 22nd of August, a “super volcano” exploded from within a giant black hole in a galaxy about 50 million light years away from earth – an extremely rare occurrence. On the week of the 28th of August, the Pakistan flood disaster reached critical point. On September the 3rd, a powerful, 7.1 magnitude earthquake rocked Christchurch, New Zealand. On the night of Thursday, the 9th of September, there was a thunderous gas explosion and fire that ripped through a San Bruno neighborhood. On September 30th, an article confirmed that astronomers had discovered a habitable planet almost identical to earth. On October the 7th, Australian scientists discovered a type of galaxy thought to be long past in the universe, shaking up existing theories on the way stars are formed and on the 13th of October, an article stated that an asteroid, that nearly collided with the earth, passed over Asia and was spotted by a telescope from the Catalina sky Survey in the United States. All these are signs – which God indicated in the prophetic message – that He is truly speaking and that what He said is coming to pass. As for 2011, the number 11, in the Word of God, is the number that represents confusion, trouble and turmoil. However, it also represents the prophetic and the miraculous. The Lord spoke to me and said that 2011 will be a year filled with spiritual activity that will manifest with an intensifying of activity in the natural. A year where we will see the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy especially for Israel - Israel will dominate headlines especially towards the end of the year. A year where we will see the fulfillment of many prophetic promises for us and for the nations. A year when we will see the intensifying of what was mentioned in last year’s prophetic message especially concerning an increase of confusion, trouble and turmoil in the world and the intensifying of God’s presence in our lives, being propelled to new realms in the Spirit, signs, wonders and miracles we have never experienced before, purification and transformation, answers to prayers and the fulfillment of God’s promises to us. As for Australia, the Lord has turned His attention to this land. The great revival that God has promised for many years will continue to intensify and will begin to break through in the natural to such a degree that the secular world will have no choice but to stand to attention and accept it. Many of these same people will be swept into it. This revival has already begun but it has slowly and steadily been growing and intensifying. In 2011/2012, this revival will be catapulted to new heights, intensity and power. We will see the church break fourth from the four walls of the building into the earth with the Gospel, signs wonders and miracles. We will see miracles of salvation, deliverance, healing, transformation and nature unlike any we have seen before and we will take the Gospel to the ends of Australia (the outback farm regions) and the world.
There is a desperate cry proceeding from the heart of God for repentance. The world, as well as the body of Christ, have become complacent, spiritually lazy and careless unlike any generation in history. Many are being tossed to and fro on the waves of false teaching and deception. Many are doing what they feel, when the feel and how they feel without considering the consequences. Many are going after whatever is in their hearts regardless of whether they are Godly or ungodly desires and pursuing ungodly desires without seeking God and taking the time to discern the difference. Many have become caught up in their own cares and the cares of this life to the point where they are neglecting God. Many have weakened in their commitment to God, His kingdom and the work of the ministry and are placing other, less important things above Him. As we move closer towards 2011, the Lord is giving us a loving warning because the enemy has greater attacks planned for us but God has greater things planned for us. For the most part of this year, the Lord has been telling me that 2011 will be the year when we will see an increase of the gift of discernment and wisdom in the Church. He said, “My people (the Church) are slumbering (they have fallen into a spiritual slumber) and have become complacent because of it. False teachings (doctrines) have infected many Churches because of the lazy, complacent, careless “easy going” lifestyles and attitudes that have come from the world. But you are not of the world, you are of the WORD! My people are no longer following true teaching but are following whatever desire is in their heart regardless of whether it is a Godly or an ungodly desire. They do whatever they feel, whenever they feel, the way they feel and whatever takes their pleasure without considering the consequences, then they say in their hearts, ‘We walk with the living God. He will work out all our mistakes for us and all will be well so we can do whatever we want, live however we want, sin and He will clean up our mess because He loves us.’ And I do love you, says the Lord, which is why I give you this warning. My people no longer have the discernment and wisdom to tell the difference. It is time for the Church to wake up! That is why I will restore this anointing (gift) to the Church. An anointing (gift) that you desperately lack but that is so desperately needed. An anointing (gift) that you need now and that you will need for the deception, confusion and turmoil that is coming. Pray for this anointing to come.” Not long after the Lord gave me this message, a well known man of God had a prophet named Dr. Cerullo as a guest on his show and he said, “God wants to pour out the incredible gift of discernment upon believers today. We are living in the end times. We are moving into a season of both crisis and opportunity, unlike anything we have ever seen before!” There is no reason to fear. We have the victory in Christ! Cling to, walk with and obey Him and all will be well. Get ready! We will see greater things with the Lord in 2011! My prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless you and your family throughout the New Year and the years to follow. Blessings.

BY RICHARD PACE The Lord has been moving in greater ways than He ever has before and is preparing the Church for a greater move of the Spirit than we have seen so far. If you are feeling discouraged or overwhelmed by difficulties, hardships and challenges or are waiting for a breakthrough, do not give up. Now is the time to dig your heels in, persevere, move forward and breakthrough. The answer to your prayer, the manifestation of God’s promises to you and the solution to whatever problems or challenges you are facing are on their way. The Lord gave me a very powerful and encouraging prophetic word about this from Hab 2:1-3, “I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” 3
The Lord has given each and every one of us an internal, personal, vision, dream or desire for something specific whether it is for a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him, victory over sin and weakness, ministry, a partner (a husband or wife), family, healing, health, business, finances or overall well-being. Whatever your vision may be, do not be discouraged if it does not seem to be coming to pass at the moment. The following are keys from Hab 2:1-3 which will help you receive the manifestation of the vision, desire or promises God has given to you. First of all, we must understand that not every vision or desire we have is from God. There are Godly desires (Phil 2:13, AMP) and ungodly desires (Rom 7:5, AMP. Gal 5:24, AMP. Jas 1:13-15, AMP). Godly desires are desires God puts in your heart through different means and ungodly desires are desires that are developed by the sinful nature or that are projected onto your soul by Satan, demons or the world. We need to discern between Godly and ungodly desires and be certain of the visions and desires God has put in our hearts as
opposed to the visions and desires that are produced by the sinful nature or the enemy. We need to seek the Lord in prayer and search the word of God about this. “I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected.” This statement refers to seeking the Lord in prayer and waiting on Him to speak about the situation you are facing. Notice, correction is involved. This speaks of God correcting, teaching, guiding and directing us in our situation and waiting to receive His direction. “Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets...” Notice, the word of God states, “Then the Lord answered me and said,” when you seek the Lord in prayer and wait patiently for Him to answer, He WILL answer. It may not be exactly how you expected or when you would have liked but He WILL answer. Then it says, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets...” If we were to translate this into our modern day vernacular, it would say “Write the vision down on paper” or “type it out on a computer”. Once you are certain that a vision or desire has been placed in your heart by God, write the vision down and keep it before you. There is something about writing a vision down that helps bring it into your reality as you continue to read it and speak it out. This in itself will keep your focus on the Lord and the vision He has given you especially when tests, trials, difficulties, hardships and opposition comes. It will keep you on track and will actually help bring (accelerate) the manifestation of the vision to you. “That he may run who reads it.” Run with the vision or go with it. Do not ignore or resist it if it has been placed in your heart by God. The Scripture tells us to run with it not to run against it. The vision is there to give you direction, to help you move forward, to help you run. Notice it says “run” not “walk”. “Run” suggests speed or acceleration. It is given to help you reach your destination and to reach it quickly or to accelerate the process. It will help you “run” in the spirit and will help take you from point A, your present circumstances, to point B, the desired outcome. “For the vision is yet for an appointed time;” The vision is yet for an appointed time, God’s appointed time. Ecclesiastes 3:1 states, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven”. And in vs.11 it states, “He (God) has made everything beautiful in its time” (Parenthesis added). Do not be discouraged if it does not seem to be coming to pass when, how and exactly the way you would like it to. It will come to pass in His (God’s) timing.
God’s appointed time, the vision, desire, answer to your prayer, solution to your problem or promise the Lord has given you will speak, it will not lie. In other words, it will be proven to be true – it WILL come to pass. “Though it tarries, wait for it;” There are times when the breakthrough, miracle or answer to your prayer may not come immediately. Although it seems to be taking some time to come to pass, WAIT FOR IT. Patience, perseverance and determination in the Spirit are required here. The Lord is encouraging us not to give up but to wait and to keep waiting until it comes to pass. If you have done everything you are required to do and have obeyed God’s instructions, by His grace, in the situation and the breakthrough still has not yet come then WAIT FOR IT. Gal 6:9 states, “for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart”. This tells us that if we do not lose heart or give up, we WILL reap – we WILL see our breakthrough. This is an absolute statement, we WILL reap – we WILL see our breakthrough, not maybe, possibly or could be but WILL! The word “if” here suggests a condition which is that we must not give up. However, the converse is true. If we lose heart or give up, we won’t reap – we won’t see our breakthrough. At times the enemy tempts us to give up because he knows that if we do, we can lose our breakthrough. So if he does, do the opposite of what he is telling you to do and wait for it. “Because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” The Lord here re-assures us that when we wait, it will SURELY come, it will not tarry. When God says SURELY, He means SURELY, not maybe, could be or possibly but SURELY. This is an absolute statement. He is not a man that can lie nor the son of man that He should relent (1 Sam 15:29). He will SURELY bring it to pass and you can totally rely on Him to. The Lord is saying that there is no doubt, it will surely come. It will not take longer than it’s supposed to and God won’t keep you waiting a second longer than necessary. I pray that this has encouraged you to persevere in whatever you are facing. Do not give up for your breakthrough is about to manifest. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith (Gal 6:9&10). Blessings.

by RICHARD PACE The Holy Spirit is the most neglected person of the Holy Trinity but by no means the weakest of the three. In fact, He is the person, nature, character and power of the Godhead – God the Father and God the Son (Jesus Christ). One very important thing we must acknowledge and understand is that the Holy Spirit is a person. He is not just a wind, breeze, force or power but a person – the very person of God the Father and Jesus Christ. Many Church denominations, ministries and ministers have neglected this fact. Those who do not acknowledge the Holy Spirit as a person do not have anywhere near as powerful an impact and influence for the kingdom of God as those who do. The key to knowing God the Father and Jesus Christ intimately and success in ministry is the Holy Spirit. Without Him we cannot know God the Father and Jesus Christ intimately nor will we see success in ministry. God is a trinity – the Holy Trinity, three persons –
one God (Mt 28:19, Mk 1:10 & 11, Jn 14:16, 2 Cor 13:14, 1 Jn 5:7, NKJV). If you want to have a better understanding of the Holy Trinity, look at yourself in a mirror. Many analogies have been used by many preachers to explain the mystery of the Holy Trinity but the best analogy of them all is God’s greatest creation - the human being. The Bible tells us in Gen 1:26, “Then God said, “Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” God created us in His image and according to His likeness. One of the ways we have been created in God’s image and according to His likeness is that because He is a trinity, the Holy Trinity – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, we too are a trinity, a human trinity – we are a spirit, who has a soul that lives in a body (1 Thess 5:23, NKJV). Most people have the wrong impression that the Holy Spirit is the weaker member of the Holy Trinity because He is known as the third person of the Trinity. This does not make
Him the least of the three. They are called the first, second and third persons not in order of importance or significance but in order of revelation – firstly, God the Father is revealed in the Old Covenant. Secondly, Jesus Christ is revealed in the New Covenant Gospels and thirdly, the Holy Spirit is revealed in the book of Acts and Epistles. Although each member of the Holy Trinity is seen throughout the Bible, They are each specifically revealed in that order. If you take one of the elements out of the human trinity, the human being will cease to function. So too, if you take one of the persons out of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Trinity will cease to function. Each member of the Holy Trinity is vital to it and without them, will cease to function and exist. God the Father and Jesus Christ cannot exist nor do anything without the Holy Spirit. We see in Genesis 1 that God created and restored the Earth by the Holy Spirit, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.” (Gen 1:1-2, NKJV). Here, the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) was hovering over the face of the waters, so He was there, with God the Father, at creation. Then God said “Let there be light” and there was light. Who do you think created the light? Yes, God, but more specifically, the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit). Who do you think created everything that was created through the commandments of God’s mouth? The Holy Spirit. God created everything by His Spirit. Jesus Christ, as a man, did nothing without the Holy Spirit (Jn 5:19, 20 & 30). Who do you think transformed Him into a seed and planted Him in the womb of a 14 year old virgin? The Holy Spirit. Who was the one that descended upon Him at His baptism then drove Him into the wilderness? The Holy Spirit. Who was the one who performed the mighty signs, wonders and miracles through Him? The Holy Spirit. Who was the one Jesus promised to send after His passion, death and resurrection? The Holy Spirit.
Who helped Him through the horror of the passion and crucifixion? The Holy Spirit and who raised Jesus from the dead? The Holy Spirit. If God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son of God cannot and choose not to do anything without Him, how much more do we need Him? We are foolish to think that we don’t. The Holy Spirit is a person. He is the person, nature and character of God the Father and Jesus Christ. He is the manifestation of the person, nature and character of God the Father and Jesus Christ in and through the life of the believer. “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”(Jn 14:15-21, NKJV) “Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (Jn 14:23, NKJV) In verse 23, Jesus is referring to the Father and Himself living within a person who loves and obeys Him – a born again believer. How do they do so? By their Holy Spirit. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” (Gal 5:22-23, NKJV)
Here in Galatians 5:22-23, we see the nine fruit of the Holy Spirit which is the manifestation of the person, nature and character of God the Father and Jesus Christ in and through the life of a believer. These nine fruit of the Holy Spirit are nine key aspects of God’s nature and character. This same nature and character is being developed and brought to maturity within the believer.
The person of the Holy Spirit What makes the Holy Spirit a person? There are 25 key things that make the Holy Spirit a person. 1. The Holy Spirit is a person. He has a personality and the fact that He has a personality means that He is not just a puff of smoke, a wind, a breeze or just the power of God like many Christian cults believe. He has a soul. The soul contains the mind, will and emotions. This is what makes Him a person. Besides this, Jesus always called the Holy Spirit “He” not “it”. You don’t call a thing “He”, you call a thing “it”. You call a person he or she (Jn 14:16, 17, 25 & 26) 2. The Holy Spirit has a nature and character of His own. In Galatians 5:22-23 we see the nine fruit of the Holy Spirit. The nine fruit of the Holy Spirit are the nine key aspects of the nature and character of God the Father and Jesus Christ which manifests in and through the life of a believer (Exo 33:13-14, 18-23 & Exo 34:5-9) 3. He has a will of His own. He can make decisions (1 Cor 12:11, Heb 2:4) 4. He has a memory. He can remember things. 5. He can be grieved – He has feelings (Isa 63:10, Eph 4:30) 6. He can hear, see and speak (Zech 4:10, Heb 3:7, 15 & 4:7) 7. He is our comforter (counselor, advocate, helper and paraclete) (Jn 14:26, Jn 15:26, Jn 16:7)
15. He made God’s will known to and through the Patriarchs and Prophets of Old (2 Pet 1:20-21) 16. He caused Mary to become pregnant with the Messiah without contact with a man (Lk 1:35) 17. He rested upon Jesus at His baptizm (Mt 3:13-17), led Him into and through the wilderness (Mt 4:1-11), gave Him strength to overcome the temptations of the devil and performed mighty signs and wonders through Him (Mt 4:14-44) 18. He led Jesus through the passion and crucifixion then raised Him from the dead (Rom 8:11) 19. He rose up the mighty Apostles - speaking and performing awesome signs and wonders through them (Acts 2) 20. He is the Spirit of Grace (Heb 10:29) 21. He convicts us of sin (Jn 16:8) 22. He sanctifies and purifies us (2 Thess 2:13, 1 Pet 1:2) 23. He distributes the gifts, ministries and offices of the Holy Spirit as He wills (1 Cor 2:11) 24. He lives within and is upon every born again believer – we can commune and fellowship wit Him and He with us (2 Tim 1:14, 1 Cor 6:19) 25. He is the person, presence and power of God and He is ours.
8. He is, has and imparts joy (Neh 8:10, Rom 14:17 & Gal 5:22)
We need to depend upon the Holy Spirit in every situation and we need the Holy Spirit’s witness more than we ever have before, especially for the times to come.
9. He is, has and can love - He desires to be loved by us (Gal 5:22, 1Jn 4:7, 8 & 16)
If you desire to be closer to the Holy Spirit, then say this prayer today,
10. We can commune and fellowship with Him (2 Cor 13:14, Phil 2:1)
Dear precious Holy Spirit, I want to be closer to you and I want you to be involved in every area of my life. I am sorry for neglecting you and I repent of the times I had not depended on you but trusted in my own power. Holy Spirit come, be near to me. Correct, comfort and encourage me. Lead and guide me in your ways and give me the grace to follow. Draw me closer to The Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and help me to love, obey and serve you all the days of my life, In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
11. The Godhead would be incomplete without Him (1Jn 5:7) 12. The Father and Jesus Christ can do nothing without Him (Gen 1:1-5, Jn 5:19 & 30, Jn 14:24) 13. He was there at creation. (He is also the creative power of God) (Gen 1:1-5 esp. vs.2)
14. He appeared to Moses in the form of the Lord (Exo 34:5-8, Num 12:8)

Have a truly
Wonderful Christmas and a
Blessed New Year
or unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice, from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
nd behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.
