Why do we then feel rejected by Him and often blame Him for that?
If GOD IS TRUE to His word.. WHICH HE IS… He says in His WORD that:
He loved us with an unconditional love. Nothing can separate us from His love
Jer 31:3 …Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you.
Rom 8:38-39 38 … neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The FATHER loves us JUST THE SAME as He loves CHRIST.
Joh 17:23 I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.
Joh 15:9-11 9 I have loved you, [just] as the Father has loved Me; abide in My love [continue in His love with Me]. 10 If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father’s commandments and live on in His love. 11 I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.
HE loved us before we could love Him
There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror!
For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].
1Jn 4:19 We love Him, because He first loved us.
While we were still sinners… Christ died for us
Rom 5:8But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us
Isa 59:1-2 1 BEHOLD, THE Lord’s hand is not shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. Isa 59:12-13 12 For our transgressions are multiplied before You [O Lord], and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us, and as for our iniquities, we know and recognize them [as]: 13 Rebelling against and denying the Lord, turning away from following our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving in and muttering and moaning from the heart words of falsehood.
He wants us to experience HIS ETERNAL LOVE & INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE
1Jn 4:16 16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.
Joh 6:37 (37) All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me].
WHAT HAPPENS THEN , WHEN we SIN?
If we look at the scriptures above… we can come to a clear conclusion that our SINS are NOT a problem to God. HE has sent His SON to the WORLD to SET SINNERS free.
In other words GOD DOES NOT LEAVE US & DEPART FROM US when we sin.
HE HAS MADE a plan that we can be RE-UNITED with HIM
Our sins / iniquities SEPARATE us FROM HIM!
WE WITHDRAW from HIM … when we sin , because the sin CONVICTS us. We feel guilty for God has written His law, His new COVENANT on our hearts & we know VERY clearly when we sin and this conviction of sin pushes us away from God IF WE DO NOT HAVE the WORD’s TRUTH in our hearts that tells us clearly WHAT our position is before God after we have sinned
Rom 7:9 Once I was alive, but quite apart from and unconscious of the Law. But when the commandment came, sin lived again and I died (was sentenced by the Law to death).
GOD PROMISED NEVER to leave or forsake US
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU.” (NKJV)
Heb 13:5 (Ampl) 5 Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support.
[I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree
leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)!
[Assuredly not!] [Josh. 1:5.]
WE SHOULD EMBRACE HIS COMPLETE forgiveness, FORGIVE OURSELVES and start living with Him in JOY, CHRIST’s RIGHTEOUSNESS & PEACE
Rom 3:21-26 21 But now the righteousness of God has been revealed independently and altogether apart from the Law, … 22 Namely, the righteousness of God which comes by believing with personal trust and confident reliance on Jesus Christ… 23 Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory which God bestows and receives. 24 [All] are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus, 25 Whom God put forward [before the eyes of all] as a mercy seat and propitiation by His blood [the cleansing and life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation, to be received] through faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over and ignored former sins without punishment. 26 … He Himself is righteous and that He justifies and accepts as righteous him who has [true] faith in Jesus.
WE should not withdraw FROM God when we sin, BUT WALK TOWARDS Him & REPENT. ACCEPTING His COMPLETE gift of DECLARING us SAVED, FREE & RIGHTEOUS by the perfect offering of His Son.
Rom 10:13 (13) For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved. [Joe_2:32]
Do NOT crucify Christ again & again by not accepting His offering… and then falling into bitterness & resentment; in due time falling away from our PREVIOUS STAND OF CONFIDENT FAITH
Heb 6:6 If they then deviate from the faith and turn away from their allegiance–[it is impossible] to bring them back to repentance,
for (because, while, as long as) they nail upon the cross the Son of God afresh [as far as they are concerned] and are holding [Him] up to contempt and shame and public disgrace.
Joh 1:12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name–[Isa_56:5]
Isa 56:5 (5) To them I will give in My house and within My walls a memorial and a name better [and more enduring] than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that will not be cut off.
GOD’s AIM is for us to HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. It is TO KNOW GOD
Joh 17:3 And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent.
Follow link to more INFO & REVELATION on SALVATION
Isa 17:13 The nations will rush and roar like the rushing and roaring of many waters–but [God] will rebuke them, and they will flee far off and will be chased like chaff on the mountains before the wind, and like rolling thistledown or whirling dust of the stubble before the storm.
1 WOE TO [Samaria] the crown of pride of the drunkards of Ephraim [the ten tribes], and to the fading flower of its glorious beauty, which is on the head of the rich valley of those overcome and smitten down with wine!
2 Behold, the Lord has a strong and mighty one [the Assyrian]; like a tempest of hail, a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty overflowing waters, he will cast it down to the earth with violent hand.
Rev_11:15 The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)! [Ps. 22:28; Dan. 7:13, 14, 27.]
SALVATION : HAVE YOU ANSWERED THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF ALL QUESTIONS? THE QUESTION on THE SALVATION of your soul.
(Afrikaans onderaan bladsy)
A very warm welcome to you !!!
I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE VISITING THIS PARTICULAR PAGE on this site; FOR THIS IS SURELY THE 1ST & THE MOST IMPORTANT PAGE of all.
This Blog will deals with the subject of SALVATION:
SALVATION and ASSURANCE OF SALVATION
A quote from M. Henry: Serious REFLECTION is the first step… towards TRUE CONVERSION.
DO YOU HAVE AN ANSWER…
…TO THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION YOU WILL EVER HAVE TO ANSWER ?
HAVE YOU ever CONSIDERED ANSWERING the following QUESTIONS?
ARE YOU SAVED?
ARE YOU A CHILD OF GOD?
HAVE YOU COMMITTED YOUR LIFE TO THE ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD ?
Do you understand WHAT IT MEANS TO BE SAVED ?
DO YOU understand what Christ did for you on the cross ?
Important Note: DIAGRAMS, accompanied with the MOST FUNDAMENTAL scriptures on SALVATION & the QUESTION of ASSURANCE of SALVATION follows below. This will give a basic but clear understanding of what SALVATION as well as ASSURANCE of SALVATION is all about.
There are about 500 scriptures in the BIBLE about SALVATION… Here is one that stands out :
CONSIDERING THE FOLLOWING…
What does JOHN 3 verse 16 says about SALVATION?
THE QUESTION -/S THAT EVERY HUMAN BEING MUST ANSWER
DID YOU receive the GIFT of LIFE, that was given to you through the PERFECT LOVE of your SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST – God’s only SON ?
DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE SAVED and therefore been set free from the penalty of sin; ETERNAL DEATH?
DO YOU HAVE ASSURANCE OF SALVATION ?
ARE you sure that YOUR NAME will be written in the Book of life in heaven ?
DO YOU HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING of what is at stake?
DO you know IF you will inherit ETERNAL LIFE ?
IF you can answer “YES” to the above here are some more questions:
Do you understand the PROSESSES of God in your relationship with Him?
WHERE are you now on your walk on the ” WAY of the CROSS ” or your road of SALVATION ?
I trust that as you go through the DIAGRAM, by following the number sequence, it will be self explanatory;
you are hereby also invited and are therefore very welcome to contact me if you have any interest in having any of the above questions explained.
BUT FIRST of ALL – THE MOST IMPORTANT moment in your life
IF you have not yet cameto a point in time when you have committed your life into the hands of your Creator God; I hereby invite you to email me; sending me your contact details.
It would be a great privilege to lead you in a short prayer towards the SALVATION of your soul and introduce you to your new SONSHIP/DAUGHTER- position IN CHRIST. Or if you are UNSURE on any of the above questions, I would gladly be of help in this regard.
PLEASE CONSIDER THAT THIS CAN JUST AS WELL BE, THE LAST CHANGE YOU WILL HAVE…TO ANSWER TO THIS MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION & INVITATION FROM YOUR CREATOR to become His child
THE FATHER WANTS US TO LIVE CONTINUOUSLY IN HIS PEACE, PRESENCE & JOY: Phil 4:4-7 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the PEACE of GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
IS THIS HOW YOU CAN DESCRIBE YOUR CURRENT STATE OF MIND ?
This PEACE of God in life is only attainable when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord & Saviour.
As we do this and repent of our sins, we are being pardoned of our sins, by being washed by the PERFECT BLOOD of the LAMB and therefore are able to stand guilt free before GOD, the RIGHTEOUS judge… IN JESUS CHRIST.
I BESEECH YOU ….. PLEASE MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION TODAY – Do Invite JESUS Christ into your life.
AS by invitation above… please contact me if you have made this ultimate decision; in order to make sure that you will also receive ASSURANCE of SALVATION.
Your decision is NOT BASED on an EMOTION, BUT on what the Word of God says about your NEW LIFE, IDENTITY & POSITION in CHRIST ( See DIAGRAM).
Therefore, no person and no voice in your head can ever tell you that there was not a specific day that you GAVE your life to God.
Your ASSURANCE of SALVATION is based on the fact that there WAS a DAY; documented in heaven … that YOUR NAME was written in the Book of LIFE!
Because of this decision, you are now the benefactor of an eternal inheritance. You are now named a CHILD of GOD with the FULL inheritance to all the benefits here & hereafter.
You are now being called a SON/DAUGHTER of the MOST HIGH GOD and you stand hidden in Christ; LOVED by the Father with the same amount of Loved that He had for Christ, His Son…
AND you will spend ETERNITY in HIS PRESENCE, TRUTH, PEACE & LOVE
WILL THE DAY of your SALVATION HAVE TODAY’s DATE ???
TWO DIAGRAMS :
JOHN 3 verse 16 – CHRIST is the BRIDGE; redeeming us from ETERNAL DEATH back to ETERNAL LIFE with GOD
Further FOOD for THOUGHT – Explanation to Proverbs 8 v 36 ( Scripture above)
(36) But he who misses Me or sins against Me wrongs and injures himself; ALL WHO HATE ME, love and court death.
According to this scripture…
‘ All who hate God ‘…actually embraces eternal deathbecause of choosing, with their free will, to ignore God AND rather take advise from their own, human, carnal understanding.
We are all mortal men…. Do we really want to get into a competition about WHO is the wisest between us & God?
Do we really want to be at risk of having to spent ETERNITY in the lake of Fire with Satan & all His demonic cohorts just because of pride; not wanting to except that I need God. To belief the lie that I can do this life without God and that I don’t have to care or don’t have a say in where I will end up after my physical death… will cost me an ETERNITY without HIM – a NEVERENDING thirst, pain & separation from God.
We all have been given a GIFT of LIFE.
WHAT we make of it, IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY & will determine our ETERNAL DESTINY!
THE ONE who created you wants to have an UNENDING, LOVE relationship with you… FOR ETERNITY LONG!
IF we BELIEVE it or not…. IT WILL HAVE AN EFFECT on ALL of us. It is like the law of GRAVITY: A child does not necessarily belief in it… YET IT IS THERE and IT DETERMINES their EVERY MOVE!!!
Α – Ω
GOD BLESS & KEEP YOU IN HIS PEACE

Somehow, so often… only in distance observed
Powerless without, yet still to be desired
Many a man to rise & fall
At the cost of kneeling – to a King or a fool
An idol brings low,
At the end of its rope
A king stretches forth His hand,
To the one serving his command
So are the hours spent in prayer
or in this World’s disarray…
TO serve the purpose & the plan
Of the one…
OR THE ONE;
Who received his plea.

WE ARE INVITED TO TAKE PART IN COMMUNION AS OFTEN AS WE CAN
The Father invites us to His table for COMMUNION; to commune with Him and spend time in His Presence. His Divine presence entails perfect unison with our Trinity God, undeserved grace, unconditional love, surpassing peace, unmerited forgiveness, strengthening joy & blood-bought healing… He invites us to bring every ailment and worry, disease and quest and lay it before Him, as often as we need.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO RECEIVE & SO MUCH WE CAN GIVE
WE HAVE SO MUCH TO BRING OF OURSELVES IN THIS TIME OF INTIMACY WITH OUR GOD and THERE IS ALL OF GOD TO EMBRACE and RECEIVE
My husband & I have felt led to start having COMMUNION regularly in the evening, as we have received the revelation of His Table being laid for us to partake from, every moment of our existence. Understanding that God so LOVES US & that He gave us this prophetic symbol to ENTER INTO HIS PRESENCE through the RIGHT DOOR and to COME AND ENJOY the FATHER’S LOVE in order to find REVELATION on how to live our lives that will guide us to stay INSIDE HIS CIRCLE OF BLESSING and NOT open ourselves up … or wander outside the “boundary” of His Blessing.
ARE WE GOING TO KEEP THE FATHER WAITING AT THE TABLE?
KEY Scripture: 1Co 11:24-25 (Ampl) (24) This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance. (25) Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.
WHY WOULD WE USE COMMUNION EVER SO OFTEN?
Well just the mere thought of Jesus Christ, WANTING us TO REMEMBER HIM… make me think…. WOW … what a privilege to be able to have such a special connection with my God, that a symbolic action like communion can put us in such a SPECIAL intimate moment; where both parties share in the blessing and where all life, peace and joy can germinate from.
A VISION OF CHRIST’S ASCENSION
I saw in my spirit a vision of Christ… with Peter, John & Paul on the mountain of configuration. As the cloud ascended, Christ holds His hand out in a very affectionate way, in the same way that you and I probably would have done, if it were us going away FOR EVER… I saw Him doing this while He was voicing a last request down to His creation:
I saw a tear… and then a desperate urgency in His Spirit… BECAUSE He knew IF WE WILL FORGET HIM…. OUR SOULS WILL END IN HELL and our lives WILL BE hell ON EARTH
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO DRINK & EAT FROM HIS COMMUNION TABLE?
1Co 10:16 The cup of blessing [of wine at the Lord’s Supper] upon which we ask [God’s] blessing, does it not mean [that in drinking it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the BLOOD of Christ (the Messiah)?
The bread which we break, does it not mean [that in eating it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the BODY of Christ?
EMBRACE THE GIFT THROUGH COMMUNION
We are encouraged to EMBRACE the WORK of the CROSS; ALL THAT CHRIST DID FOR US, on a REGULAR BASIS.
Communion, symbolizing His PERFECT REDEMPTIVE WORK to reunite us with the Father.
TO PARTAKE IN COMMUNION IS OUR ULTIMATE SOLUTION and should be our CONSTANT RESOLUTION in these days.
At the end, all we truly need and can depend on IS His PERFECT SACRIFICE (God requires NONE MORE); His BODY that was broken for us and His Blood shed IS that perfect sacrifice justifying us FOR ETERNAL SALVATION and ETERNAL REDEMPTION. We are therefore FOREVER IN RIGHT STANDING with God because of the FORGIVENESS, LIFE and POWER of the BLOOD.
THIS will work for us ONLY if we UNDERSTAND & EMBRACE the GIFT
CHRIST DID EVERYTHING necessary for us to be able to live in GOD’S GRACE, PEACE and PRESENCE.
ALL that we need to do is to EMBRACE it and BRING IT INTO OUR HEART OF HEART’S FAITH, by DISCERNING HIM, HIS SACRIFICE AND ETERNAL VICTORY; by TAKING COMMUNION.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “DISCERN HIS BODY and HIS BLOOD”?
IT MEANS to take time at the feet of the Cross while giving the Holy Spirit an opportunity TO IMPRESS on our hearts the COMPLETE VICTORY OF THE CROSS, OVER the GRAVE and HELL and to make it your own.
Here we are to COMPREHEND & APPRECIATE the FULL IMPACT of HIS RESURRECTION and the MAGNIFICENCE of HIS ASCENSION where HE IS NOW SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER; INTERCEDING FOR US CONTINUALLY.
Discerning His Body and Blood…
should lead to a cognizant state; of being in UTMOST FAITH, UNWAVERING TRUST, UTMOST RELIANCE and UNYIELDING HOPE IN OUR GOD…. WHO WOULD NEVER forsake or leave us at the mercy of HIS adversary. (Read Ps. 91, 23, 121… aloud)
TO DISCERN HIS BODY & BLOOD IS TO KNOW:
He is fighting for us He is NOT against us BUT FOR US! HE is the Eternal GOD of Glory, Creator of the Universe…!! also living IN US… ! He is VERY, VERY NEARBY… AS FAR AS YOUR WORDS OF FAITH PROCEEDING FROM YOU OWN MOUTH
A CHILD’S PRAYER
Be humble enough to listen to a child’s prayer. A child’s Innocent Prayer, praying by the revelation of the Holy Spirit – without even knowing it – make you realize how much there is… HOW CLOSE GOD IS:
Liandri’s prayer at age 5:
“Thank You, Lord, for my family. Thank YOU for ALL the LOVE. Thank You for ALL the CHURCHES and THANK YOU FOR THE COMMUNION”
Are there, fear, worries and stress in your life? Then TAKE COMMUNION!
Is there thankfulness, joy, abundance and peace in your life?
Then TAKE COMMUNION!
Does uncertainty, heart-ache and feelings of rejection taring you apart?
IMPORTANT Note on COMMUNION:
What does it mean to drink in an ” UNWORTHY MANNER “
– This when you take communion without knowing why you do it,
– or when you take it in a ritualistic way… NOT DISCERNING Christ / Not understanding what Christ did for us on th Cross
– Also as in Bible times, they indulged on the wine… and ate the bread out of hunger.
We TAKE COMMUNION out of REMEMBRANCE of Christ’s Perfect Work on the Cross:
– setting us completely free from th kingdom of darkness… He brought us into His marvellous Kingdom of Light through complete forgiveness of our sins and redeeming us back to the Father into a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP FOR ALL ETERNITY AS WE RECEIVE CHRIST AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR….
KEY NOTE on Communion:
WHATEVER YOU are in NEED off TO BE DONE…. REQUEST IT, just ask!
– UTTER YOUR FAITH’S TESTIMONY, ON GROUNDS OF HIS BLOOD SHED for YOU & SEAL IT – IN THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB …
As you look down on that marked peace of BREAD in your hand & taste the sweet WINE in your mouth… REMEMBER HIM!
REMEMBER that IT ALL revolves around His LIFE, RESURRECTION & ASCENSION…. it all boils down to WHO HE IS. HE IS the beginning & HE IS the end of all things.
And that our prayer should keep Him in the center and our Focus to stay on the VICTORY on the Cross.
Speak to the problem about God & not the other way round
I COR 11:24-27, 29, 31 NKJV ” and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes. Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
JER 31 V 2-3 …. Found GRACE in the WILDERNESS — Israel, when I went to GIVE him REST.” The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I HAVE LOVED YOU with an EVERLASTING LOVE; Therefore with LOVING-KINDNESS I HAVE DRAWN YOU. Jeremiah 31:2-3 NKJV http://bible.com/114/jer.31.2-3.NKJV
…is to RECEIVE a WORD, a PHRASE, a VISION, a DREAM or a SCRIPTURE from the Holy Spirit for a specific situation and to be used as your SPIRITUAL WEAPON.
By having a sword in your mouth that comes from Him, WHO KNOWS ALL THINGS, is to have the very WORD of the LIVING GOD, WORKING ON YOUR BEHALF.
THIS IS A DIVINE INTERVENTIONof heaven into the issue at hand. AMEN!!
It introduces THE POWER of THE SWORD into any given situation. THIS is the DIVINE WRITTEN WORD of GOD, taken as your weapon of warfare & authority, to be DECLARED INTO a situation, at a given KAIROS moment in time; RELEASED & ENDORCED BY the POWER of His Name.(1)
— SCRIPTURE as a SWORD in your mouth WILL BE USED as a very POWERFUL CREATIVE FORCE(2).
It will either be driven into the root & sting of the matter; to disperse it into nothingness: – being annulled, being cancelled and declared null & void of any power or effect.
This SWORD in your mouth, will be empowered by HEAVEN’S MANDATE of the LIVING WORD of GOD; Who is JESUS Christ – our CREATOR GOD, to create & bring about something new:-
“On earth, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN”
BACKGROUND TO the TESTIMONY at hand:
A couple of years ago… I woke up one morning with an urgency in my spirit to read the WORD out loud. The Holy Spirit led me to Ps68 and I felt prompted to read it over & over as if Holy Spirit encouraged me to memorize it.
It come into my spirit that this was a very specific WORD for OUR Business.
Getting to my office, I was immediately prompted to open my Emails. Previously, this has not been my priority on arrival .
This email encouraged Business People to seek God’s face for specific Scripture to pray for their business’ protection.
Well, needless to say, I was so enthralled by the experience of having my Father already leading me to this very powerful Scripture – to use for this identical situation. I immediately realized that this is not just another moment, but God intervening somewhere in our lives and business without us even realizing exactly where, when, how & why.
God has taken the “time” to engage with us re. our business… a very earthly matter! His omniscient existence looked into our personal KAIROS MOMENT; to intervene through His written word.
As it was released on earth through the power of the tongue – becoming the SPOKEN WORD into a KAIROS MOMENT in OUR TIME DIMENTION – to engage with heaven in releasing His Divine protection, foreknown.
This was one of the most awesome moments in my life… realizing HOW CLOSE these dimensions are and HOW NEAR MY FATHER IS to me…
HAVING A SWORD IN YOUR MOUTH & TO USE IT
A few weeks later while I was preparing to go to the office… I again felt a very strong prompting in my spirit to PRAY PS68 OUT LOUD. This had to be done while preparing for work & running the last chores before running to the office… BUT the conviction was so strong that I just kept on reading… even in between the mirror & the kitchen, the stove & the wardrobe…
THE ‘SWORD OF THE WORD’ HAD TO BE RELEASED
I read through Ps68 about 2-4 times… again not having a clue what this was all about… JUST STAIGHT FORWARD OBEDIENCE to the PROMPTING of the Holy Spirit.
That same morning at about 11h, my husband phoned me with the news that one of our timber trucks has had problems with its breaks. This incident happened while the truck came down the mountain with a full load of timber when the vehicle’s breaks failed.
By His grace …
It happened at a spot where the truck was not in danger & the driver kept his head. The incident took place literally in the cradle of the valley, where the vehicle could role to and fro until it got to a stand still. With only the load of timber that came loose off the truck on the side of the road and very neatly positioned it also did not cause any harm to oncoming traffic. All the timber could be salvaged very easily. There was no significant damage & nobody got hurt.
We were so thankful and in awe of His gracious hand of protection over all involved.
PRAISE to our God!
WHAT would have happened if GOD did NOT give me that SWORD in my mouth the previous time AS well as this specific morning?
WHAT would have happened if I did not obey?
DO we understand what happens when we PRAY the WORD out loud? (3)
The SPOKEN WORD releases the HEAVENLY MANNA; the “WORD” that CAME to BECOME FLESH.
CHRIST is THE ULTIMATE TRUTH versus EARTHLY REALITIES.
He is the REAL MANIFESTED WORD, the Son of the Living God… FOR EVER SPEAKING!
CHRIST HIMSELF ARE “INVOKED” in ALL the FULLNESS with which HE FILLS all things(4), into our lives to perform HIS POWER and GRACE on our behalf(5)… AS WE DECLARE HIS ” I am”… BACK TO HIM
THIS IS GOD HIMSELF STANDING IN THE GAP & DOING WHAT HE SAID IN HIS WORD THAT HE WILL DO FOR US. MY GOD AT WORK FOR HIS CHILDREN. THIS IS TO ME OUR GOD BEING WHO HE SAID HE IS.
I will lift up my eyes to the hills. Where shall my help come from? My help comes from Jehovah, who made Heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. Jehovah is your keeper; Jehovah is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. Jehovah shall keep you from all evil; He shall keep your soul. Jehovah shall keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore. Psa 121:1-8
(1) Rev 2:12
These are the words of Him Who has and wields the sharp two-edged sword…
(2) Heb 4:12
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 analysing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
(3) Isa 59:21
As for Me, this is My covenant or league with them, says the Lord: My Spirit, Who is upon you [and Who writes the law of God inwardly on the heart], and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart ( withdraw from) out of your mouth…
Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].
So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
THROUGH THIS VISION WE ARE COMFORTED & CHALLENGED:
All of us have been given a chance to JUMP into that River of LIFE…
Giving us a new start DAILY… transporting us to A PLACE OF FINDING HIS GRACE ( Hebr.4)… being washed by the Blood of the LAMB daily…
To see our Father’s love & to dance before His throne… to feast at His Table because of the Blood of the Lamb… being washed in the three baths in Heaven
Is your PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE BEEN WASHED in the three baths in Heaven?
“Every time somebody comes to draw near to Me; to draw near to my Father, I come closer.”
As you approach the three baths in Heaven,
these baths are filled up with My Robe dipped in My blood, and we wash you.”
” I come with the POWER of the Blood and I wash you and cover you with MY TESTIMONY. I cover you with My Life, I cover you with everything that I Am.
And as you go to the Father, I present you to the Father as Holy, Righteous and Pure because of the washing in the Power of My blood.”
” He met me the minute that I drew near and He covered me with His blood;
We are again reminded here that… the blood that speaks from the Mercy Seat on the one side and the Blood that is dripping from His Robe – the Robe that is dipped, dipped… in Blood.”
HE IS WAITING TO EMBRACE US – EVERY TIME, EVERY MOMENT WE DRAW NEAR…
“Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].”

Joh 2:18 Then the Jews retorted, What sign can You show us, seeing You do these things? [What sign, miracle, token, indication can You give us as evidence that You have authority and are commissioned to act in this way?] Joh 2:19 Jesus answered them, Destroy (undo) this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.
His sacrifice for you on the cross & His resurrection – the ORIGINAL reason for your mission, the ORIGINAL source of your authority & power received, to go…
KEEP YOUR FOCUS
Luk 1:50 And His mercy (His compassion and kindness toward the miserable and afflicted) is on those who fear Him with godly reverence, from generation to generation and age to age.
The miserable & afflicted you will serve … being yourselves aware… of your own… In awe & gratitude, full of His praises! Blessed & highly favoured!
THIS PAGE IS MEANT TO ASSIST YOU in YOUR PURSUIT of GOD.
IT CAN BE USED as a SCRIPT IN HAND; WHEREBY YOU CAN BOLDLY MAKE ADORATION DECLARATIONS by MENTIONING & DECLARING the NAMES and ATTRIBUTES of GOD.
WE ALSO want to come into a time of DEVOTION through the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT in order that we can BE IN HIS KAIROS TIMING, KAIROS LIFE ans KAIROS PURPOSES
‘KAIROS’ MEANING here; – BEING LED BY THE SPIRIT & DISCERNING HIS VOICE that will lead us EVERY SECOND of the day and show us FORTH TO the FATHER and the SON
Joh 16:13-14 13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future]. 14 He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.
The NAMES and ATTRIBUTES of GOD explain ALL THAT HE IS
During this time of DEVOTION, we will pray and declare the NAMES and ATTRIBUTES of GOD, and build up our FAITH in Him BY declaring His Name out loud & use this as a powerful Bible based “TEXT ” in prayer, to position ourselves IN HIM; as we draw near to Him through our ADORATION DECLARATIONS.
THEREFORE as I am POSITIONED IN the Holy Spirit’s DEVOTION unto The Father & Son:-
I now HUMBLY COME in PROPHETIC STANCE before God Almighty, BOWING before His throne to DECLARE my ADORATION.
I HUMBLY COME in PRAYER to PROCLAIM HIM; His NAMES and the ATTRIBUTES of GOD, by FAITH, INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALM;
as I draw near… my heart closer… closer to my FATHER’s heart
with the guidance of Holy Spirit, and by HIS SPIRIT-PASSION & POWER
THE HOLY SPIRIT TEACHES MY LIPS what to pray and to bring HONOR to HIM ALONE
He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God]
in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will. [Ps. 139:1, 2.] Rom 8:27
This is He Who came by (with) water and blood [His baptism and His death], Jesus Christ (the Messiah)–not by (in) the water only, but by (in) the water and the blood. And it is the [Holy] Spirit Who bears witness, because the [Holy] Spirit is the Truth.1Jn 5:6
ADORATION DECLARATIONS – EMPOWERED BY HIS NAME
– We are EMPOWERED by the ETERNAL VICTORIOUS NAME of JESUS; the ONLY LORD & ONLY SAVIOR of this world –
13 And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son. [Exod. 3:14.] 14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. Joh 14:13-14
ADORATION DECLARATIONS – CHANGING THE ATMOSPHERE
My expectation – through THESE PROCLAMATIONS of the VICTORIOUS NAME of our Lord JESUS, the Christ and of the FATHER & Holy SPIRIT – is that the spiritual ATMOSPHERE, around my life’s circumstances & influence sphere, will be changed.
I therefore confidently believe that the spiritual CLIMATE will also be transformed by His creative power & presence. This will result in a CULTURE change because of the POWER released through CHRIST’S redemptive WORDS of FAITH – spoken into EACH SITUATION.
My unconditional hope is that these declarations will amend my BEHAVIOR to change into that of a BIBLE BELIEVING, GOD FEARING, FOLLOWER of CHRIST JESUS fulfilling the Great commission, ‘TO GO’ into this broken world; and therefore being influential towards an “ENVIRONMENTAL ADJUSTMENT” both in the physical as well in the spiritual spheres in & around us.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven. Mat16:19
ADORATION DECLARATIONS – A PRAYER
WE COME WITH OUR WORDS OF ADORATION
“Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name”
– HALLOWED BE THE NAME OF GOD ALMIGHTY –
