Shall the real Bride stand up please...? 11 March – 14 April 2002 Part 17

The Impostor Bride On the 7th of April 2002 I had a dream. I was on my way towards some place. I walked and turned towards my righthand, suddenly entering unexpected path or destination. As I looked I saw a woman. Then another woman came and told this woman that there was no danger and that she could go on her way. The one who assured this woman that there was no danger was in disguise. I could not see who she was. After this, in my dream, I looked and saw people who were performing and acting in a building or a church or a congregation. While I looked another women came in. In my dream I knew she was the actual and real one who came in, she was not an impostor, neither was she only acting the part, only playing a role. Then again as I looked I saw this woman had a blood red dress, with flowers embroided on her dress. She looked beautiful from my point of view. As I looked in my dream, standing infront of this women was a wedding cake, having two dolls of a bride and a bridegroom mounted upon this wedding cake. The cake seemed cheap and very traditional. The two dolls were an imitation of the real bridegroom and his bride. As I looked, I saw that the woman who was in disguise was being unveiled. She was sitting, watching as the people performed their acts. It was made known to me that they had performed their acts to this woman in red, thinking that she was the real bride. They were performing their acts, trying to please the bride and thus also pleasing the bridegroom. When I paid close attention to this bride, who was in disguise, I saw that she was not the bride whom all was waiting for, but was in fact a witch, who was sitting among the people, who expected her to be the real bride. When I saw this woman in my dream I was in utter horror, because of the perversion, realizing how all the people were misled, how she without anyone’s knowledge had deceived and chased away the actual bride, putting herself in her position. The apostle John told us by the mouth of the angel, that all mankind will be deceived by the devil, saying: “And the huge dragon was cast down and out that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. [Gen. 3:1, 14, 15; Zech. 3:1.] (Rev 12:9) Ampl We have all thought that some one else will be deceived, when ourselves have already been deceived in one or the other way by Satan’s cunning lies. The prophet Jeremiah prophesied why we have been deceived, saying: “Surely our fathers have inherited nothing The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

but lies, emptiness, and futility, worthless things in which there is no profit!� (Jer 16:19) Ampl We have just like the Pharisees, who, without knowing it, held on to so many traditions and lies, which we only inherited from our unknowing forefathers, just as Jesus said: 6 So for the sake of your tradition, the rules handed down by your forefathers, you have set aside the Word of God, depriving it of force and authority and making it of no effect. 7 You pretenders (hypocrites)! Admirably and truly did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said: 8 These people draw near Me with their mouths and honour Me with their lips, but their hearts hold off and are far away from Me. 9 Uselessly do they worship Me, for they teach as doctrines the commands of men. [Isa. 29:13.] (Matt 15:6-9) Ampl Do we really know whether what you have learnt about the word of God through the generations are actually what is written in God’s word, according to the context of the scriptures? But even more than this do we only pretend in church or do we really live this way when no one sees us, Paul taught both the churches of the Ephesians and the Colossians, as is written: 5 Servants or slaves, be obedient to those who are your physical masters, having respect for them and eager concern to please them, in singleness of motive and with all your heart, as service to Christ Himself 6 Not in the way of eye-service, as if they were watching you, and only to please men, but as servants or slaves of Christ, doing the will of God heartily and with your whole soul; 7 Rendering service readily with goodwill, as to the Lord and not to men (Eph 6:5-7) Ampl What is an impostor? It is some who try to be something which they actually are not. They are plastic and pretend, because it is not really their heart. A woman always refers to a church or a congregation of people. This woman does not refer to a specific church, but to the church of Jesus Christ. In this dream the one woman caused the people to believe a lie. She then replaced the real with the fake. She had all the outward signs of the bride. She also had the appearance of the bride, she was wearing a beautiful red dress, but she was not who she said she was. She was not the chaste and spotless bride, but rather wore a vial of selfrighteousness, preventing those who are looking for the truth to be able to find the real artefact, the true bride of Christ. This impostor bride, on the inside was the opposite of the bride. She was unclean, perverse in heart and motives. She was deceitful and unfaithful to her, soon to be revealed, bridegroom. Her faithfulness lasted only as long as she was in His Presence. She was actually full of manipulation and unsubmissiveness to her soon to be husband. She is in every sense of the word a prostitute. She actually loved herself and her pleasure and comforts more than he loved her promised husband. She was easily distracted from her love and devotion to her loved one. Many things would draw her away from her beloved. In this dream, she was not only portrayed as a prostitute, but as a witch. She made use of her charismatic charm to get her victims to fall into her web, which has been carefully spun, by her predecessors. The apostle Paul warned that in these last days those who do not love the truth will be deceived, as was prophesied: 9 The coming of the lawless one, the antichrist, is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of pretended miracles and signs and delusive marvels, all of them lying wonders. 10 The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, going to perdition, because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. 11 Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false, 12 In order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in [who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely on] the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thess 2:9-12) Ampl How can we then escape this terrible delusion, which will delude all who do not know the Truth? The question is what is the Truth? Jesus revealed His purpose to the governor of Yehudah, saying: “This is why I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who is of the Truth, who is a friend of the Truth, who belongs to the Truth, hears and listens to My voice.” (John 18:37) Ampl Jesus once told those Jews, who believed in Him: 31 So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word, hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them, you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. (Joh 8:31-32) Ampl To know the truth we must practice the words of Jesus. If we only believe His words we do not yet know as we should know. For only when we abide and live in His words and teachings, will we truly be able to speak and teach from experience, not from knowledge. The trap and deception of only increasing in our knowledge is that we will grow proud, as Paul said: “We know that all of us possess knowledge [concerning these matters. Yet mere] knowledge causes people to be puffed up, to bear themselves loftily and be proud, but love, affection and goodwill and benevolence, edifies and builds up and encourages one to grow to his full stature. 2 If anyone imagines that he has come to know and understand much of divine things, without love, he does not yet perceive and recognize and understand as strongly and clearly, nor has he become as intimately acquainted with anything as he ought or as is necessary. 3 But if one loves God truly with affectionate reverence, prompt obedience, and grateful recognition of His blessing, he is known by God, recognized as worthy of His intimacy and love, and he is owned by Him. (1 Cor 8:1-3) Ampl Those who claim to know, but does not have the love of God in them are also impostors, as John, through the Anointing, taught us, saying: 8 If we say we have no sin, refusing to admit that we are sinners, we delude and lead ourselves astray, and the Truth, which the Gospel presents is not in us does not dwell in our hearts. 9 If we freely admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just, true to His own nature and promises and will forgive our sins, dismiss our lawlessness and continuously cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action]. 10 If we say or claim we have not sinned, we contradict His Word and make Him out to be false and a liar, and His Word is not in us [the divine message of the Gospel is not in our hearts]. (1 John 1:8-10) Ampl We are not being led astray by other people, but we lead ourselves astray. We do not recognize the sin in our own hearts anymore. We are unwilling to see the beam in our own eye, but only see the splinter in our brother’s eye. Pride blinds us to our own condition. Unfortunately those who should be the leaders and examples to other always first grab to the pride in our brother’s eye. We are unwilling to humble ourselves and learn from those who are less significant and of less repute then ourselves. But men will not be our judges one day, they will only be the vehicles which God used to shape and test our hearts, especially those who irritated us and whom we love The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

the least. The final test will be the Truth lived and built into our hearts, as John taught, saying: 5 But he who keeps and treasures His Word, who bears in mind His precepts, who observes His message in its entirety, truly in him has the love of and for God been perfected (completed, reached maturity). By this we may perceive and know, recognize, and can be sure that we are in Him: 6 Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself. 9 Whoever says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother, Christian, born-again child of God his Father, is in darkness even until now. 10 Whoever loves his brother abides, lives, in the Light, and in It or in him there is no occasion for stumbling or cause for error or sin. 11 But he who hates, detests, or despises his brother in Christ is in darkness and walking or living in the dark; he is straying and does not perceive or know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. (1 John 2:5-6) Ampl Do you think you are any better than your neighbouring Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal or Reformed church? Do you think there is nothing you can learn from your brother? Do you as a leader think that your knowledge is maturity? Do you love your sheep or do you only use them. Do you think that you are better than your lambs? Yet you were appointed to take care of the sheep, not muddy the water so that no one else can drink the water, as was sternly warned by Holy Spirit, through the prophet Ezekiel, saying: 2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them, even to the [spiritual] shepherds, Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the [spiritual] shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the sheep? 3 You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you kill the fatlings, but you do not feed the sheep. 4 The diseased and weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the hurt and crippled you have not bandaged, those gone astray you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought to find, but with force and hardhearted harshness you have ruled them. 5 And they were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered they became food for all the wild beasts of the field. 6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains and upon every high hill; yes, My sheep were scattered upon all the face of the earth and no one searched or sought for them. [Matt. 9:36.] (Ezek 34:2-6) Ampl This is without a doubt the scripture that I have heard the Holy Spirit has given, as Rhema, to more Christians, then any other word, accept of the word that the Holy Spirit always speaks, saying: “I love you!” God’s love for us will not override His word, because He is Holy. In conclusion, I want to end of not with my word, but with the prophetic word of the Lord to the church who has fornicated with the world, lowering her standard to that of the world, so low that she her self was sucked in and deceived, because of her pride: 3 And [the angel] bore me away [rapt] in the Spirit into a desert (wilderness), and I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast that was all covered with blasphemous titles (names), and he had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was robed in purple and scarlet (Red) and bedecked with gold, precious stones, and pearls, [and she was] holding in her hand a golden cup full of the accursed offences and the filth of her lewdness and vice. [Jer. 51:7.] 5 And on her forehead there was inscribed a name of mystery [with a secret symbolic meaning]: Babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes (idolatresses) The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

and of the filth and atrocities and abominations of the earth. (Rev17:3-5) Ampl This woman was called the mother of many daughters, or prostitutes. We must rethink where our roots come from? We all still have on the inside of us many things which came from our mother church in Rome. Those who are offended when I say this have not considered the word of the Lord to the apostle John, saying: 9 This calls for a mind [to consider that is packed] with wisdom and intelligence [it is something for a particular mode of thinking and judging of thoughts, feelings, and purposes]. The seven heads are seven hills upon, which the woman is sitting; 10 And they are also… (Rev 17:9-10a) Ampl The historical site of Rome on its seven hills was occupied as early as the Bronze Age (c. 1500 BC), and the city was politically unified by the early 6th century BC. It became the capital of the Roman Empire (see Roman Republic and Empire). The Romans gradually conquered the Italian peninsula (see Etruscan), extended their dominion over the entire Mediterranean basin (see Punic Wars), and expanded their empire into continental Europe. See Britannica Concise Encyclopaedia Rome is in the Lazio region of central Italy on the Tiber river (Italian: Tevere). The original settlement developed on hills that faced onto a ford beside the Tiber Island, the only natural ford of the river. The historic centre of Rome was built on seven hills: the Aventine Hill, the Caelian Hill, the Capitoline Hill, the Esquiline Hill, the Palatine Hill, the Quirinal Hill, and the Viminal Hill. The city is also crossed by another river the Aniene which joins the Tiber north of the historic centre. See Wikipedia: Rome Many have being subtly deceived from their sincere goal to serve Jesus Christ. We have built great congregations, but have not achieved the same results as Jesus promised us. Some have achieved the same results, but have not got the love and character or lived like Jesus. The Apostle John told us to test whether we are still in the faith, saying: “Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself.” (1Jn 2:6) Ampl We ought to live the live that Jesus lived. He is the way the Truth and the Life! We will not be judged one day on whether we obeyed what our leaders or churches told us to do, but on what is written in the scriptures. Many, in their zeal, have put themselves under strict judgment, but have not really known the Father’ heart or love. We have even judged one another in criticalness, thinking that we will escape the judgment seat of God. God knows our hearts. It does not matter how much religions activity we have done, but rather whether we have loved and served the Lord Jesus Christ out of a sincere and heartfelt love. We have judged our brother, for not serving the lord as we do, forgetting that we ourselves were in their position of ignorance once. Are you now more righteous than they, just because you have grown in your knowledge, but not in your maturity of heart? We must stop judging one another, and start respecting one another’s point of view, for you will not stand or fall before another, but before your Master and the true Judge of the hearts of all men, whether they have accepted Jesus Christ as the Messiah or not!

Many who claim to know Christ will get a shocking surprise on the last day as Jesus warned us, saying: 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits. 21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name? 23 And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]. [Ps. 6:8.] (Matt 7:19-23) Ampl This is a great warning for all who are so selfassured of their salvation! We have lost our fear of God, because we have thought that we are free from all judgment. We forgot that we will be judged by our rewards, even as Paul said to the unspiritual church of the Corinthians, saying: “But if any person's work is burned up under the test, he will suffer the loss of it all, losing his reward, though he himself will be saved, but only as one who has passed through fire. (1Co 3:15) Ampl If we are not ready the fire will reveal the work of each man’s heart and actions. Will you really stand the test of faith? Will you, when the day of testing comes, not fear and deny your Lord and Saviour? You say: “I will never!”, but even now you can not stand up for what you know is right. You compromise with all the others around you just so that you can be accepted in the social statue quo! We must not be deceived, among us and even in our own heart is a witch instead of a bride! Have you pretended to be what you are not? Do you struggle with lust in your heart and think no one knows it? Do you think evil and malicious thoughts and do not realize that you are murdering your brother. Are you so religious that you have become a spiritual snob? This is the final judgment, which all of us will have to go through on the last day, as the writer of the book of Hebrews have written: “For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. 13 And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenceless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.” (Heb 4:12) Ampl The Apple of His Eye On the 4th of July 2008, I was taken into heaven and saw the most unspeakable things, just like Paul said. I have seen that many things, which we were not taught in our churches, because the fullness of their greatness and revelation are still hidden. After seeing the spiritual realm, being an engineer, I understood many things, which we as the human race have only start to understand. Much of what are taught in churches today we have only come to know by studying the scriptures, but our understanding must also come from personal experience of that which the Lord Jesus had revealed and shown to us Himself. Even Jesus said: “I tell the things, which I have seen and learned at My Father's side, and your actions also reflect what you have heard and learned from your father. (Joh 8:38) Ampl Even the apostle Paul said this about His teaching: “For indeed I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through a direct revelation given by Jesus Christ, the Messiah.” (Gal 1:12) Ampl When we have seen what we so confidently affirm, we can teach with true The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

authority. A question we should all ask ourselves? Where does my conviction come from and on what do I base my faith? Jesus once spoke to a very well trained scholar of the Torah, Nicodemus and said to him: “Are you the teacher of Israel, and yet do not know nor understand these things? Are they strange to you? 11 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, We speak only of what we know. We know absolutely what we are talking about; we have actually seen what we are testifying to. We were eyewitnesses of it. And still you do not receive our testimony. You reject and refuse our evidence, that of Myself and of all those who are born of the Spirit. 12 If I have told you of things that happen right here on the earth and yet none of you believes Me, how can you believe (trust Me, adhere to Me, rely on Me) if I tell you of heavenly things? (John 3:10-12) Ampl How will be able to understand those who are truly receiving revelation which enhances the scriptures and give a deep understanding into the things of God? I will, like Paul, go onto speak of these unspeakable things, which I also was allowed to see, so that you also may understand what God had shown me and how we will be judged on the day of Judgment day. I was taken too many places during a period of 10 days. I was taken to a place called Hades, which were like an Abyss. It was a fearful place, yet it was not yet the second death, the lake of fire or hell as we know it. I was taken here, not because God only wanted to show me something, but because I had to see the effect of unrepented sin, which was still in my own heart. When you hear of my sin and you judge me, remember you will not be my judge, but Jesus Christ will be. Only before Him do I stand or fall. We some times hope certain problems will just go away. And if they don’t, we just give over to them, over a period of time. Here in this place I was judged, by an all revealing knowing of my sin. The Word of God, the Spirit judged my heart. I was not even able to defend myself in this place. I was judged and exposed to the core of my hearts attitudes. The slightest fear and pride here was open and in the most extreme open. Here I also understood that Jesus on the day that He died came and preached as the Righteous Judge and Saviour of all mankind, whether they lived before the time of the flood or just before His coming, according to the word of Peter, saying: 18 For Christ, the Messiah Himself, died for sins once for all, the Righteous for the unrighteous (the Just for the unjust, the Innocent for the guilty), that He might bring us to God. In His human body He was put to death, but He was made alive in the spirit, 19 In which He went and preached to the spirits in prison. (1 Pet 3:18-19) Ampl This was the same prison in which the angels who disobeyed were cast, awaiting their judgment, as was written: 4 For God did not [even] spare angels that sinned, but cast them into hell, delivering them to be kept there in pits of gloom till the judgment and their doom. (2 Pet 2:4-5) Ampl The Greek meaning of the word ‘hell’ in this context, according to the Strongs dictionary is: tar-tar-o'-o, which came from the Greek word - Î¤ÎŹĎ Ď„ÎąĎ ÎżĎ‚ or Tartaros, which is the deepest abyss of Hades; to incarcerate in eternal torment: - cast down to hell. No man will escape the judgment God. It is from this place came those who were asleep in Christ be delivered, to be with Jesus for ever and ever.

Great opportunity brings also great opposition After this dream I had another dream. In my dream I dreamt that some had to come up and preach a sermon to a great crowd of people, but they were not able to do the sermon. Then I was asked to come up and speak in the place of the one who was not available, giving me the opportunity to speak all that God had placed upon my heart. I knew that the church had great need of hearing all which God had lead upon my heart by His Spirit. I also knew that God was the one who opened a way to bring His message, which He had given me to His people. I wanted to speak upfront and strait, not putting any sugar coating on to the real issues that needed to be addressed, preparing the way before the Lord as He had called me to do. I took of my shoes as a sign of humility and walked up to speak to the crowd. I had black socks on. I started speaking with great conviction and power, explaining the scriptures. Suddenly some came up to me and called me away, interrupting me, stopping me from finishing that which I had to preach, missing this powerful moment to speak to thousands of people. The enemy do not want us to fulfil the plans of God for our lives. From the time that God called us the first time, he will do everything to make us give up, not believing the words of promise and prophecy, which God had given us. He will try to cut us off from completing the good plans God has for our lives. There are many ways that the enemy can use to deter us from loosing focus and sidetracking us. Although the original plans of God for us never changes, we will by our faith and obedience determine the outcome of that which God has for us. The apostle Paul reminds us that God will not give up on us if we do not give up on Him. God has never given up on the promises, which He had made with His people, saying: “For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.] (Rom 11:29) Ampl Satan tried the same with Jesus just before He begun His ministry. Satan wants to sow seeds of doubt and fear in our hearts, trying to discourage us from believing that God do want to use us. If his doubts do not deter us he will send another test to make us fall into a trap. Ever wondered why the devil made Jesus stand on the pinnacle of the temple, telling him to jump off from there, as was written: 5 Then the devil took Him into the holy city and placed Him on a turret (pinnacle, gable) of the temple sanctuary. 6 And he said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written: “He will give His angels charge over you, and they will bear you up on their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone.” [Ps. 91:11, 12.] (Matt 4:5-6) Ampl The pinnacle is one of the highest points on the temple, which are directly above all the worshippers on the inside of the temple. Satan suggests that Jesus jump down from the temple so that all may see that He is the Messiah. Satan knows that God’s plan for you life will hurt him and drive him back, making him loose his power over people. He also knows when you do it God’s way you will be very effective and Jesus will be glorified. Therefore he tries to get us to put the attention on ourselves. He tries to help us fulfil our callings, by giving us another option of fulfilling God’s plans for our lives. Many of the most righteous patriarchs in the Word stepped into this trap. Abraham and Sarah, having the promise of becoming a father to many nations, after not seeing the prophecy fulfil, took Hagar his wife’s concubine and had a child with her. This was not the plan of God.

was granting them deliverance by his hand [taking it for granted that they would accept him]; but they did not understand. (Act 7:24-25) Ampl Both Abraham and Moses had to wait many years before they had perfected their hearts in God righteousness, before God’s promise to them could be fulfilled. The parable of the sower is a perfect example of how the enemy tries to choke the word out of us, as Jesus said: 4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and ate them up. 5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil; and at once they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. 6 But when the sun rose, they were scorched, and because they had no root, they dried up and withered away. 7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them out. (Matt 13:4-7) Ampl Only the last seed actually accomplish its purpose. All the rest of the seed did not bear the fruit of the Kingdom. I have said it before, but in all humility will acknowledge that I have already missed God’s plan for my life 3 times. But thank be to God who did not give up on me, therefore He will not give up on you also, as long as you do not give up on Him. Therefore: 5 “Clothe (apron) yourselves, all of you, with humility as the garb of a servant, so that its covering cannot possibly be stripped from you, with freedom from pride and arrogance toward one another. For God resists the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)--[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favour, blessing) to the humble. [Prov. 3:34.] 6 Therefore humble yourselves, demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation, under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, (1Pe 5:5b-6) Ampl Another ingredient, to seeing the prophecy, which God had given you, fulfil in your life, is absolute obedience to the Voice and guidance of the Spirit of God. God wants you to be in the right place at the right time. Once God spoke to me and said to me: “Give me one man who will do will all that I tell him to do and I will turn the country upside down.” I do praise God who in the year 2007, through a dream came and confirmed that He had not withdrawn His calls for my life. I was on track of still fulfilling His hearts desire for my life. Therefore I want to encourage all who have been waiting on the Lord for the fulfilment of their call and purpose. It is however important that not all are apostle or prophets or evangelists, but are all called to help our colleague or next door neighbours. God has a specific plan and purpose, which will bring us fulfilment and will make an impact on this world, bring His Kingdom in some way closer us and the world.
