Are You Listening?

What loving Father never speaks to his children? God is speaking to us all the time, yet so many of His children don’t hear Him because they do not expect to hear Him speaking to them.

In my own case it was more than five years after I was born again before I heard the Lord speaking to me personally for the first time. Five long years of total silence!!! Some of you will be shocked by so long a delay. Others may not yet realise that Jesus is simply longing to share His heart with each one of us. We are all equally special to Jesus, so why did I have to wait so long? It was simply because no one had ever told me that Jesus wanted to speak to me, so I was not expecting Him to speak. As soon as a friend told me the truth, I asked Jesus to speak to me and He did so straightaway, and He has been speaking to me every day since then.

As we grow in the Lord it becomes a beautiful, ongoing conversation, what some call ‘direct connection’ — Jesus says something… you reply… Jesus adds something else… you respond, maybe with a question this time… back and forth, back and forth like a normal conversation between two best friends enjoying spending time together.

As Jesus fellowships with us in this way, He opens up the Scriptures and our hearts are set on fire by His love. Things that were previously misunderstood may instantly become crystal clear. It’s like moving from Black and White to HD at the flick of a switch! This reminds me of the two disciples whom Jesus met on the Emmaus Road on the morning of His Resurrection.  They failed to recognise Jesus – after all, few of His disciples probably believed that He would rise from the dead and these two were grieving inconsolably. “Their eyes were opened and they knew him” when Jesus had taken the bread, blessed it, broken it and given it to them. At that point He vanished out of their sight. It is recorded that “they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the Scriptures?” Luke 24:13-32.

How do we hear the voice of Jesus?

It is not an audible voice that we hear, but rather it comes as a series of loving, connected thoughts inspired by the Holy Spirit. There’s nothing to fear: it will always be 100% in agreement with Scripture. Sometimes Jesus may remind us to spend more time worshipping Him… or perhaps He needs to correct us… or maybe He has a new assignment for us to work on for Him… or a reminder to pray for some needy person we know, and to phone them to show that we care.

At the Last Supper, Jesus taught much on the Holy Spirit. He said in John 14:21 “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself [= reveal, show, appear] to him.”

As we press on into Jesus’ heart of love for us in simple childlike faith, the Holy Spirit opens our spiritual eyes to see Jesus. This is most likely to happen during a period of prolonged worship, basking in His presence, pouring out our love to our Saviour. We may see Him in the spirit every day, or perhaps it will be from time to time. This is a genuine and truly life-changing experience. Once we have seen the love in the eyes of Jesus we can never forget them — never.

We must not allow ourselves to be put off by unscriptural and unspiritual naysayers! Satan wants to steal all that he can from us. He does not want us to be blessed. The Spirit of Truth will always lead us into the truth. Any experience that brings us closer to Jesus, and helps us to become more like Him, is from God, and not from the enemy!

Does God still speak audibly nowadays?

Yes, on occasion God does speak in an audible voice today. However, in our day, this is the exception rather than the rule. Throughout the Old Testament we read that God spoke audibly to His chosen leaders and prophets. And in the New Testament, Saul of Tarsus was stopped in his tracks by seeing “a light from heaven” and hearing the audible voice of the Lord saying to him, “Saul, Saul, Why persecutest thou me?” as he travelled to Damascus to persecute the Christians there. The Lord then spoke to Ananias (who did not seem in the least fazed by hearing the voice of the Lord) and told him to help Saul because he was a chosen vessel, and His hand was upon him (Acts chapter 9).

In the following chapter, the Apostle Peter was granted a vision of “all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air” and he heard the Lord audibly say, “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” The Lord spoke audibly to Peter three times to convince him that it was His will for non-Jews (Gentiles) to be welcomed into the church. We can learn from these examples that an audible voice was heard at a time of a significant change of direction.

I know a missionary who received her call to the mission field during a conference. The subject was ‘Missions’ on that particular evening. She heard the voice of God audibly say “Will you go?” This was immediately before the meeting started, and the nine hundred delegates had been asked to be in an attitude of prayer until the speaker came to the platform. All heads were duly bowed. She describes the voice she heard as majestic, awesome in power and volume, and unlike any voice she had ever heard. She looked up to see where the voice was coming from, fully expecting to see everyone else looking around them in astonishment too, but they had evidently heard nothing as they were still praying with their heads bowed. That was her personal missionary call.

Note from So Greatly Loved

The Lord has no favourites. All those who are His are equally precious to Him and He wants to draw each one of us deeper into His loving heart. If you are longing to hear Jesus speaking to you, it is helpful to begin by listening to some praise and worship music for a while… wait on Him, and tell Jesus how much you love Him. It is a good idea to have pen and paper to hand so that you can make a note of the beautiful thoughts that will come to you. Allow yourself plenty of time – don’t be in a rush. Pour out your heart to Jesus. Tell Him you would love to know Him better, to enjoy a deeper walk with Him and to hear Him speak to you. Think about Jesus and how very much He loves you, then start to write down the thoughts that come to you during this prayer time. Many Christians do this every day in their quiet time. There are beautiful prayer journals available in which we can write down the encouraging, uplifting thoughts that will come to us from the Lord. Don’t expect to write pages and pages when you first start out. Just one short sentence can be so very precious.

Wrap The Lost In The Blanket Of My Love

“I’m right here by your side, My Love, and I do want to draw you far away from the world and way high up into My Heart.”

Clare was enjoying a beautiful time worshipping the Lord. She pondered, “It’s funny, every time I would worship I would feel like I was tucked up under His arm and I was just kind of disappearing into His heart. I kept having this feeling all night long, and all day long too, that that was my place, right there beside His heart, and that every time I was worshipping, somehow I entered into that heart and just about disappeared in His Love.”

Jesus continued, “In My Heart is that place of fullness where I exchange your weakness for My Strength, your ignorance for My Wisdom, your laziness for My Commitment, your fears for My Faith. Up, up and away high into the habitation of My Heart, out of harm’s way, in that place where none can disturb or disrupt.

“When you worship in this way I have given to you, your soul is drawn along as if on a conveyor belt. I draw you with cords of love into the secret high place where all eventualities are realities. You exchange your limited human time for My eternal, endless time, in which I see the completed majesty of My creation.

“This supernatural exchange of energies from the Divine Wellsprings of Life are what I wish to fill all My Brides with, that they may walk in victory until I take them up and away with Me. The challenges of your corrupted world overpower ordinary humanity. Nothing that is grounded in the world can stand, all must have its foundations in solid rock. That is My will, My empowerment, My Love. And tucked away, securely, hidden in the Vine, putting forth the sweet fruit of Divine Love.

“In this world all turns bitter. In Heaven all turns sweet. As you walk in this life grounded in Me, this sweetness is exuded into your grapes from deep within Me. These choice clusters are readily identified by those who know the voice of their Shepherd and another they will not follow.

“In these times, I am calling, calling, calling out in Love to those who have departed from the way, to those who have never known the way. Amidst a sea of bitterness I am offering the sweetness of My Love, something never before experienced. My focus is not on punishment but Love, for Love is the last call to the rebellious and uninformed. The sweet melody of love is unmistakably different than the harsh crassness of the world. This Divine Fragrance touches that tender place within a soul that has yet to be filled. Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. [Matthew 18:3]

“The simplicity of the Gospel can never be improved upon by the intellect of man. It only sows confusion and pride. That is why I prefer simple things best, things that bypass the intellect and lodge in the heart like a dart tipped with a drop of My sacrificial love. Once that finds its way into a man’s heart, he knows right from wrong, good from evil and that is when the poison of self-will can do the most damage.”

At this point, Jesus answered Clare’s unspoken question: “What am I getting at? Your channel is about that simple love. It reveals how very simple, tender and approachable I am. This is by My design, for I wish to reach inside souls and bypass all the religious traps and mazes that have so hindered conversions. I want to provide a straight line to love. I want to nourish and suckle the little ones directly from My own Divine Breast, without the posturing and learning of men. Charity edifies, Knowledge puffs up and Pride precedes a fall.

“The way to My heart is straight and narrow. These other things are there only to direct the soul into My arms and a Divine Union of wills. But men have made them an end in themselves and have devised a million ways to detour humanity from My simple and direct love. As a result, so many do not make it into My arms but are turned away in confusion.

“I want to go back to the simplicity of the gospels, the witness of My Miracles, and the kind of love that does not exist in the world. I am calling to the Lost with My Love. You are all ambassadors of love, a rare quality, one that only thrives in the Garden of My Love where you daily come to bask in My transforming presence.

“I am calling you all to simple Brotherly Love. Please put aside rhetoric and squabbling over doctrines. It is so easy to be caught in the trap of Pride and Learning, but so very challenging to skip on past needless disputes and answer with love and graciousness, dwelling together in one accord on Earth even as it is in Heaven. I am not asking you to compromise, not in the least. But, I am asking you to use the superior tools for conversion: Love…not endless doctrinal arguments and disputes that only reveal the hypocrisy in My Church.

“Love one another as I have loved you. Yes, this I will bless, this will reap the bumper crop and My storehouse will be full. Go forth now in humility and wrap each soul in the tender blanket of My Love. There they will find shelter from the relentless storms of confusion. There they will find rest. Bring them to Me, I long to embrace the lost. Tenderly bring them to Me.”

God’s Judgment To Fall On Pro-abortion Adherents: Sequel to ‘Free To Be Born?’

The Lord is so broken over these murderous laws the states are passing. He said, “My people, laws you are signing into existence are tragedy beyond your reckoning. This is forcing the Father’s hand… Sodom and Gomorrah. For those of you who care, please come to My side and hold Me, stroke My hair and comfort Me. Weep with Me, My people. Weep also for yourselves, for great is the calamity My Father will allow for this heinous crime.

“Everyone involved in this practice, from the doctors, to the hospital, to those who make arrangements for disposal of these children —everyone who touches this is guilty of first-degree murder. If you work in a hospital where this is going on, leave and find other work. The judgment of the Father is hanging heavily over those who permit this in their hospitals.

“You are turning this nation into a nation of vampires, where soon anyone will be able to purchase blood—the blood of newborns. It is already a fact on the black market. It started out with the Elites but has spread throughout your government as Satan harvests the blood of innocents in retaliation for shutting down child-trafficking rings and building a wall to prevent smuggling victims across the borders.

“I cannot even begin to tell you the consequences of these crimes. Pray that your President acts immediately to stop this butchery. Pray that he exhausts every possible course of action to shut this down, or these places will be no more.

“You lawmakers who have signed this into existence, wail and mourn — for your time is coming and there is no escape from it. Your place in Hell is secure unless you repent of this evil and work to overturn these laws.

“The life you look forward to for your children is in jeopardy for your criminal slaughter of My children, whom I brought into this world to bless. You will find the Asian, the Arab, the African, and Native and Hispanic population will change the face of this nation as their families increase and mature. They will come to maturity and govern with Godly values. And those of you who care nothing for life will be in the minority and under their rule in America.

“I will bless those who honor the sanctity of life. I will cover them and their families with extraordinary protection, and they will multiply and flourish.

“But for you who murder My children from the womb, God’s judgment is upon you and your future generations. Those who honor the sanctity of life, I shall bless and protect. I am warning you, that unless you repent and change these laws, judgment will indeed fall upon your house and beyond to your future generations.

“My People, pray for your President. Pray for your lawmakers. Pray for a complete reversal of this crime against humanity. Pray the whole world outlaw abortion. And as you stand for them, I will stand for you, and your children I will save.” – Jesus

Note from So Greatly Loved

This is the full text of the serious prophetic word of warning given by Jesus to Clare du Bois on February 14, 2019. Millions of prayer warriors worldwide are in intercession for the safety and protection of President Donald Trump as he takes a bold, unwavering stand against the heinous crimes of abortion, child-trafficking rings and the other outrageous crimes against humanity in the United States. Donald Trump is hated by many in his own nation for carrying out his election campaign PROMISE to “Drain the Swamp.”

The Fragrance That Draws Me To Your Heart

Jesus said, “Nothing displeases My Father more than ingratitude. Taking your lives for granted, taking your gifts for granted by not investing them wisely, taking your health, sustenance and relatives for granted—as well as all I have provided you with. And it is a fact: the richer you get, the more you take for granted. That is another reason why poverty is so very dear to Me.

“When I tell you it is a rough time ahead, I’m letting you in on a secret, so that you will be prepared to generously offer to Me every inconvenience, every pain, every lack. Those who live this way are approaching sainthood. It is not prosperity that makes a soul great, but how he handles adversity. This is the great danger for a society that becomes prosperous and decadent. Even as history confirms, this society is nearing its end.

“The poor you will have with you always, and I chose a poor existence to manifest to you. This elevates poverty and distinguishes the lowly and humble. ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.’ I did not say this lightly. And you will note that every Beatitude runs contrary to popular opinion and culture. This was a deliberate play on words to draw your attention to the most valued state of a soul.

“The choice is yours to make. I chose a feeding trough for My bed, and never rested in the beautiful one Joseph had crafted for Me. I chose to live on the run and bear the persecution criminals endure for their misdeeds. From the manger to the Cross, I made Myself the lowliest among men, to teach you the safest route to holiness.

“But My children, if you want to find favour with God, you must learn to rejoice in all adversity. Rather than running from it, run to kiss it, and embrace it—recognising it as a precious cross I have tailor-made for you. When you embrace this cross with kisses, you are declaring your love for Me and for My children. And nothing brings Me more joy than to see you completely formed in My image, with a heart full of love and compassion, and a healthy disregard for those things the world runs after.

“Those who choose to blame God, and others, for all their misfortunes are creating a massive bondage in their hearts. When you receive a bitter seed, which Satan scatters abroad, hoping you will receive… it goes down into the chambers of your heart and slowly puts out paralysing tentacles that wrap the heart and entangle it, cutting off the circulation of your life’s blood to the rest of the body. The longer you persist in this behaviour, the further down and more paralysed you become, until your emotions are without hope and life.

“Every little inconvenience you react to with resentment, anger, and bitterness carries with it seeds that take root in your heart. These choke off life in the spirit, and hamper your union with Me, until you cannot see Me or hear Me clearly anymore.

“Dear ones, to the degree you react in resentment to trials and contradictions, to that degree you distance yourself from Me. Whereas a docile, meek, soul receives these things with love, trusting in the judgments of My Father unequivocally, and receiving them from His Holy Hand as a precious gift. This is what I am praying for you, Heart-dwellers. That you receive these things with great love and gratitude, giving thanks continually for your state in life and all it entails. For your obstacles, for your short-comings, for your failures as well as for your victories.

“If you are feeling distant from Me, begin with gratitude. Make sure you have not developed an attitude of grumbling, because this will lead you down the path of darkness, further and further away from Me. Begin by looking at your attitude about your circumstances—what you have and what you do not have. Thank Me profusely for each and every thing I have given you to fulfil your mission in life. Thank Me for your children—even the ones with problems. Be ever so grateful they are still alive and there is still hope for them.

“Thank Me for the plans I have for you, which you know nothing of at this point in your life. Thank Me for suffering on that Cross for you and your family. Thank Me for allowing you to be born and to grow to maturity. Thank Me for the amazing days you live in, and the promise of the Rapture.

“Make it a point all through the day to recognize something wonderful in front of you, and soon your whole attitude towards life will go from discouragement and fatigue to hope and a fresh start. Truly, My mercies are new every morning! But if you keep your head tucked under the covers and never get out of bed, you won’t see the sunshine sparkling through the window, the flowers blooming, fresh ideas and opportunities arising.

“So, I beg of you, My children. Awake in the morning and thank Me for every convenience you have. Thank Me, also, if there is an inconvenience. Offer it to Me with Joy and resolution to never complain again, and you will have Me in abundance. The sweetness of My presence will be drawn to you by the fragrance of gratitude, and I will touch your heart and make you to know that I love and approve you and am with you today to do mighty things. And persevere against all opposition.”

Jesus gave this beautiful message to Clare du Bois, who had been going through a period of severe, practical trials and testing in her life at the very time when prayer warriors had been called to two weeks of intense intercession and fasting. Since you will be encouraged, and not a little comforted, by the way she poured out her heart to Jesus, and will realise the full significance of what Jesus teaches here, I include the link to the entire message.

How privileged we are in our day to have access to teaching like this from Jesus. I find all the videos on the Still Small Voice channel on Vimeo life-transforming.

Free To Be Born?

The Seed Was Called Back

“As I was praying for New York. I saw a vision of Jesus hugging a doctor. Then I saw this chain of people running from, or out of, the dead baby. It almost looked like everything was being played in reverse. Jesus sent a seed, and that seed became a foetus. But that foetus never made it out of the womb alive. The baby was called back, the teen was called back the young adult was called back and the doctor was called back to the arms of Jesus. They were actually not running back, the time was being reversed.

“The face of Jesus was that of a very stern and disappointed look. That foetus could have been the answer to many prayers. That foetus could have the cure for cancer or other terminal illnesses that have plagued our lives for the longest. The doctor you see with Jesus is the doctor who had the cure for cancer, but was called back because we didn’t want him. Whatever that cure was, now has been stopped.

“My God, My God what have we done?! Will He send another? Will His mercy prevail one last time? Where are the midwives? Where are the intercessors? This nation must fall on its face and repent and ask for mercy.

“Blessings on those who have eyes that see and ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying.”

My Abortion Goes Before The Court Of Heaven

This testimony of an appearance in the Court of Heaven about an abortion was shared on Facebook. The woman was asked if she would allow it to be shared publicly and she agreed if she could remain anonymous. This event happened on August 16, 2017:

“After I read the book by Praying Medic ‘Defeating Your Adversary in the Court of Heaven’ I decided to go to the Court of Heaven. It was my first time. I followed the instructions that were outlined in the book. As I asked for the Court to be convened, I could vaguely see God the Judge in front of me. To my right stood Jesus. To my left in front of me was the accuser. When I asked for the accusation to be heard, I saw several little beings by the accuser. I knew/sensed the accusation was about an abortion I had when I was 17 years old (I’m presently 52).

“To give a brief background, I have wholeheartedly repented for this sin. I broke covenants with death and murder. Broke curses, etc. Forgave every person involved. As far as I knew, I dealt with this in a spiritual sense 100%.

“I sat there and waited for the Holy Spirit to guide and help me. I thought to myself, I only aborted 1 baby, not all of those. My recollection was about 6 little beings there. And then I sensed/heard from the Lord, I don’t remember how He communicated to me, but He revealed to me that I had not just killed that baby, I killed the offspring: the other lives that would’ve come through my baby’s life.

“I wept so hard! I saw this! I saw them! It was so horrible to realize the gravity of aborting my baby. I cried in deep repentance and asked for forgiveness. I stated my only defense was the blood of Jesus!

“Then, the most amazing thing happened. I could feel the mercy of Jesus. Right there in the midst of discovering the gravity of my sin (not one life but many) I was forgiven. It was a profound moment of experiencing the mercy and forgiveness of God. I was declared not guilty and Court ended.

“I’ve never heard anyone teach on this in what I call “Freedom” ministry. It was a revelation to me. It is imperative for anyone that has had an abortion to not only repent for the life they ended, but also for the offspring that would have come through that life. Thank You, Jesus for Your revelation and amazing grace!”

Please Note:

It is not our intent to cause shame or humiliation to anyone who has had an abortion. Our only intent is to let you know that God is compassionate toward you and He would like you to be free of any accusations that the enemy has brought against you.

Who Should Also Have Lived?God is strongly Pro Life and every soul deserves to live

Human Life Begins At Conception With a Flash of Light

Abortion advocates often claim as a defense of abortion that no one can really, truly define the moment life begins. Without knowing that, they say, there’s no real argument against abortion.

A new scientific breakthrough might go a long way towards changing hearts and minds: scientists have been able to capture the moment life begins, with a bright flash of light as a new life is conceived…

Human life begins in a bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film. An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception. Scientists had seen the phenomenon occur in…animals but it is the first time is has been also shown to happen in humans.

Science confirms the Bible

Every soul is infinitely precious to God, and is a person from the moment of his or her conception. Science has only relatively recently proved that there is a flash of light in the womb at that precise moment. The New Testament was written nearly 2,000 years ago. Every soul that is conceived in the womb comes from our Heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit inspired James to write:

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the FATHER OF LIGHTS, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17 KJV [capitals mine]

A Disturbing Statistic: Abortion was the Leading Cause of Death Worldwide in 2018, Killing 42 Million People, according to a Recent Report:

Abortion: The Harrowing Truth

Two Screenshots from a Video on Facebook:

This is shocking, but true.

Babies bigger than the one above are aborted every day – ripped apart, limb from limb, their tiny skulls crushed. Can THIS baby feel? Ask the nurse. Surely she will tell you that she has seen evidence that this baby has a nervous system and is able to feel pain. Are we supposed to believe that this same baby would be unable to feel pain if still in his or her mother’s womb, having arms and legs ripped off during an abortion?

Does Rape Justify Abortion?

Read these powerful testimonies!

How Unbelievably Stupid Is This!

These Policies are Mengelian

Josef Mengele, Nazi SS physician, was notorious for his work at the camp at Auschwitz. He was an ardent believer in Nazi Racial Theory and Eugenics. He was interested in twins, identical or fraternal, and did experiments on Jewish and Roma children in the camps. He was especially interested in eye color and many children were maimed or killed in order for him to complete his experiments on them. Was he the only doctor at these death camps doing this kind of work? No, he was just the most infamous and was known as the “Angel of Death” at Auschwitz.

When we think of the Nazi SS and their death camps, we are outraged. We just had Holocaust Remembrance Day and we mourn the six million Jews who were murdered at the camps. But they were not the only ones that were scheduled for extermination. Fourteen million people were murdered by the SS: Jews, Romas, the old, infirm, disabled, mentally ill, and those physically or mentally handicapped were also scheduled for death in order to help establish a pure race.

Outrage and sadness, that is what these kinds of policies evoke in most people. That happened in WWII. It is over, we will never have to face that kind of inhumanity again, or will we?

The policy just signed into law in New York makes abortions legal up to the time of birth. Any child deemed unwanted, unnecessary, mentally or physically unfit will be killed at the moment of birth if that is what the mother wants. Is this law an aberration? No, it is the latest in a series of laws that some states are trying to adopt.

These policies are Mengelian, plain and simple. Americans are divided on their stance for abortion, but seventy-one percent of us are against late-term abortion. If we don’t want these laws to stand, just like those in Nazi Germany who stood against the SS and their inhumane practices, we must use our voice to stand up against these laws.

New York Legalized Abortion Until Birth

Jesus gave this serious warning:

“My people, it was bad enough that your Governor and the New York legislature passed an abortion law to ensure abortions will not be stopped. Now to glorify this legislation’s passing, your Governor has put a pink light on top of your Freedom Tower. I have told you before how this tower will come tumbling down because you are defying Me in rebuilding the previous towers. Now with this latest act of glorifying abortion with this pink light, your whole state will suffer from My justice. I will spare My faithful, but those people who support abortion will pay dearly for their actions that mock Me.”

– John Leary, 1/24/19

All who advocate Abortion would do well to meditate on Psalm 139. Every soul is infinitely precious to God and is irrefutably a person from the moment of his or her conception:

1 O LORD, you have searched me and known me!

2  You know when I sit down and when I rise up;

you discern my thoughts from afar.

3  You search out my path and my lying down

and are acquainted with all my ways.

4  Even before a word is on my tongue,

behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.

5  You hem me in, behind and before,

and lay your hand upon me.

6  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;

it is high; I cannot attain it.

7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?

Or where shall I flee from your presence?

8  If I ascend to heaven, you are there!

and if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!

9  If I take the wings of the morning

and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

10  even there your hand shall lead me,

and your right hand shall hold me.

11  If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,

and the light about me be night,”

12  even the darkness is not dark to you;

the night is bright as the day,

for darkness is as light with you.

13  For you formed my inward parts;

you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

14  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;

my soul knows it very well.

15  My frame was not hidden from you,

when I was being made in secret,

intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

16  Your eyes saw my unformed substance;

in your book they were written, every one of them,

the days that were formed for me,

when as yet there was none of them.

Psalm 139:1-16, ESV

Note from So Greatly Loved

The first person to recognise Jesus was an unborn child. John the Baptist reacted in the womb of his mother, Elizabeth, when he heard the voice of Mary, who visited her when she was pregnant with Jesus. Luke records, “When Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb.” Luke 1:41, KJV

Further points to ponder

Glorious News!

Lord, I thank You for the Joy of helping You help others. Thank You for stripping away all the sin that covers a soul, when we truly look through Your eyes. And by looking through the lens of Your Mercy, always show us that precious Soul that You so desperately want to bring back Home again, no matter how many layers of darkness surround it. May we never look at any person through any other lens than Yours. Amen.

An Astounding Praise Report

It is with great joy, and in deep awe of the immeasurable Mercy of God, that I share this praise report. It is glorious news indeed for all who love our Lord Jesus Christ and whose hearts beat as one with His own tender, loving and merciful heart. Truly, the Mercy of God is unfathomable! How gracious our God is, and how He yearns over every single soul that He has created! It is written, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 KJV

The international group of prayer warriors to which I belong was recently called to a two-week period of travailing prayer and fasting. This was a highly critical time; in our group we had all been given by the Lord many sufferings to bear as we gave ourselves to intense intercession. For a few, their physical pain became excruciating as they prayed. Intercessory Suffering bears much fruit for the Kingdom of God, and the few whose suffering becomes almost impossible to bear are granted by the Lord to see what is going on in the spirit as a result of our intercession. Half-way into this period we were encouraged when we received this update from one of our leaders.

Through a phone call with Ezekiel du Bois, a sacrifice soul who is called to undergo from time to time extremely intense suffering in intercession, she learned that Ezekiel was seeing that we were praying over the souls of people who were being tortured and executed. He knew that there were not just one or two being executed now – but many. At Gitmo they were trying to get information out of people, using strong means to get them to talk. However, we were not only praying for those in Gitmo. Ezekiel began to understand that some of these people were not actually in Gitmo but on a Russian prison ship. Many of these were from a Russian Orthodox background but, through the course of their lives, they had become layered over with sins of self and pride and the world until they were barely recognisable. It was these souls, in particular, that we would be praying over. Ezekiel realised then that President Trump is not the only one trying to ‘drain a swamp’. President Putin is doing his own ‘draining’.

The Unfathomable Mercy of God

The Lord had appeared to the indicted people in the spirit and was telling them, “Come. I will forgive you, just come. Receive Me. They were realising what they had done, the wickedness of their lives, their deeds… who they had been serving in it all [Satan] and how evil it all was – how evil he, the Enemy, was.

Ezekiel revealed what the Lord was allowing him to see: “They were falling to their knees before the Lord in amazement that He was willing to still show them Mercy. In deep sorrow and repentance, they were crying out, ‘But Lord, how can You forgive me?But He was; Jesus was touching them all, receiving them, receiving their cries of repentance. These were relatively big, strong men – and they were sobbing, on their knees, just weeping at His feet. The Justice of God was there, hovering over them. It seemed to have a mass of its own, encircling them. I heard some of them saying, ‘Lord, I will accept any punishment from You for what I have done. Anything! I deserve it all! They were saying, one after the other, ‘But it’s my fault! I’m guilty! I deserve Hell for all of these things!!

“And the Lord simply picked up His hands, like He always does, and showed them the wounds. And that Circle of Justice backed right away from them. Daddy-God came in then, and they were all just regenerated, swept up in His arms. Holy. Pure. Changed back to what they were in the beginning of their lives, like pure, innocent babies.

“Never before have I seen His mercy in that clear a light, that great a way. His Mercy over them was in direct response to the Heart Dwellers: their prayers… their offerings… their sacrifices for the sake of His souls that were still lost and wandering, buried under sin and darkness.

“When the prisoners were repenting, at first it was if the gates of Heaven had been shrouded somehow. They couldn’t be seen through the 2nd Heaven atmosphere. But it was just the filth, the smog of all the sins of the Earth had risen and clouded my view.

“But once Jesus showed them His hands, and Justice was pushed back away, it seemed as though all of Heaven was watching. And all of Heaven came down, spearheaded by His Mercy, right at the point, just like a spear. Our prayers, offerings and sufferings were ascending up through our atmosphere into the 2nd heavens, while His Mercy was coming down. They collided head-on; it was almost like a nuclear blast. This was like a major breakthrough turning-point, because these people were receiving now the Grace of True Contrition, True Remorse. So much so that even the angels, and certainly the demons, backed way back and just stood there in awe of what was happening!

“When His Mercy and Grace met our little offerings—a huge gaping hole was opened, and this indescribably beautiful Light came pouring through. God’s Justice gave way to His Mercy – bigger and grander, and on a larger scale than I have ever seen in my life. That’s what our prayers are doing. That’s what God is doing with all these things we are offering. The Power of even the smallest offering is just phenomenal…

“There is now a major, huge hole in the darkness that was blocking the way between Heaven and Earth. It is allowing the Light of Jesus and His Mercy to come through. It needs our prayers, sufferings and offerings to keep that hole open and wide.

“Next, Ezekiel was shown that even for many of the guilty souls listed in these indictments, who were not yet in prison… they, too, were receiving this same breakthrough, and they were starting to understand and repent. The Grace of True Repentance was reaching them, too. Jesus was visiting them personally, because we have been asking Him to do just that!… to tear through the Darkness… to visit these soon-to-die ones and reveal Himself to them one last time. To them yet one more chance to see and find Him – and receive Him in Truth. To these souls, this Light is such a contrast to the Darkness that they had been living in… such a contrast to the lies and deception they had lived under—some of them for most of their lives.

“By now (it was around 11:00 or so) and this particular Battle was nearing its end. Ezekiel’s pain was growing far less. And he remembered that all the Scripture readings he had received throughout the night before had been about the Harvest and Fruitfulness. As we talked together, we realised something I’d never thought of before:

“Not only is the Lord draining the Swamp – He is turning the filth of the Swamp into Glorious Victory for the Kingdom of God. Yes, these people were dying – the ultimate punishment for their crimes that man metes out. But Jesus was, at the same time, snatching them out of the hands of the one they had been serving all that time – and bringing them Home, even at that last moment, to Glory. How great is our God!

“Ezekiel said that the only song he had been able get to ‘work’ on his computer was a song by Freddie Haler called ‘Songs of the Angels’ – a song about how the angels rejoice at the repentance of a single sinner. These people, wicked as their deeds had been, were a beautiful part of the Great Harvest the Lord speaks of. Now they would be with Him eternally.”

[The above report is from Carol Jennings, one of our leaders, who spoke on the phone to Ezekiel du Bois (our overall leader together with his wife, Clare). Carol subsequently shared this encouraging news with our prayer warrior team].

“Let us press on in intercession for the sake of the souls He is so dearly longing to bring Home, no matter who they are, or what they have done in their lives. Because always He would remind us: If not for His Grace we, too, could be on a prison ship awaiting execution.” – Carol Jennings

Sadly, to some Christians – those who don’t recognise in themselves a pharisaical spirit – these last-minute conversions may not be ‘Glorious News’ at all. Maybe you are feeling like my fellow prayer warriors and I were feeling last year, that they must be brought to Justice as soon as the Military Tribunals could begin. However, that was before Jesus shared His heart more fully with us, telling us how He feels about so many tens of thousands of indicted persons falling into Hell.

Maybe some of you have been crying out for Justice to be meted out – Extreme Justice for the Satanic Deep State traitors… Extreme Justice for those who have stolen billions of dollars from their nation… Extreme Justice for those who have caused untold numbers of deaths of the innocent and defenceless… Extreme Justice for those who have been running large sex-trafficking rings, causing untold suffering and premature death to huge numbers of very young children… Extreme Justice for those who have relished brutally torturing their victims before offering them as human sacrifices – even babies – to their god Satan who had promised them such rich rewards for serving him.

The Mercy of God is beyond the understanding of us all. Let us never forget the words of Jesus to the Pharisees when they gleefully brought to Him the woman who had been caught in adultery. They all slunk away one by one, hanging their heads in shame, when Jesus said to them, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.” John 8:7-9

Note from So Greatly Loved

John Wesley (1703-1791) was an English cleric, theologian and evangelist who was the leader and founder of a revival movement within the Church of England, known as Methodism. His brother Charles (1707-1788) wrote 6,500 hymns, which would be writing at least two hymns a week, every week for 50 years, from his conversion in 1738 to his death in 1788. My favourite of Charles Wesley’s hymns, And Can It Be that I Should Gain, was written in 1738, on his conversion:

And can it be, that I should gain

An interest in the Saviour’s blood?

Died He for me, who caused His pain

For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be

That Thou, my God, shoulds’t die for me?

~~~

‘Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies:

Who can explore His strange design?

In vain the first-born seraph tries

To sound the depths of love divine.

‘Tis mercy all! let earth adore,

Let angel minds inquire no more.

~~~

He left His Father’s throne above,

So free, so infinite His grace,

Emptied Himself of all but love,

And bled for Adam’s helpless race:

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free;

For, O my God, it found out me!

~~~

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;

Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;

My chains fell off, my heart was free,

I rose, went forth and followed Thee.

~~~

No condemnation now I dread;

Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!

Alive in Him, my living Head,

And clothed in righteousness divine,

Bold I approach the eternal throne,

And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

My prayer is that not one of us will fail to be saved, and that we will avail ourselves of the Mercy of God. Truly, His Mercy is unfathomable and freely given to all who call upon Him.

“Donald! This Is Jesus Christ Calling.”

Prayer writes history! The Lord is graciously allowing prayer warriors to see how our prayers are affecting the world. As usual, much is happening that is being kept from the knowledge of the general public. There is so much encouragement here, but also a serious warning from the Lord to the President, which he ignores at his own peril.

Recent developments

Clare du Bois shared with prayer warriors worldwide that “the United States has had to order prison ships to handle the great round up of so many tens of thousands of indicted persons. It would seem that the shutdown has given our President the opportunity to clean some things out in the Senior Executive branch of the government, Congress and the Senate. I have also heard that Soros is no more. All I can say is that these various sources are highly regarded. But only the Lord has total truth… I feel like He allowed me to hear these things to encourage us. Because I’ve been asking Him for days, “Please, Lord, let us know how our prayers are affecting the world?”

One of the prison ships recently bought by America

What could happen if we remain faithful in travailing prayer with tears and fasting!

“Now, here is some potentially good news, from the same source. This is what COULD happen if we continue praying. It seems that different well-informed sources are saying that the Federal Reserve will be shut down; the Gold Standard will become our new currency. A Jubilee will happen where all debts are forgiven. If you own a house and are paying on it, it will be yours without any further payments. If you have a car you are paying on, it will be yours. If you are in debt, all debts will be forgiven.

“Also, the IRS will be dismantled, and we will no longer pay income tax. However, we will pay tax on purchased items and that will fund the government. All of this can happen, because the ‘Clay Feet’ have been stealing money from our government – more money than you can even imagine. All our income tax… for decades. And that is going to end, if Trump stays in office.

“Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to have all debts forgiven, and evil corrupt men and women cleaned out of the government? No more child trafficking! No more drugs, illegal drug traffic! That, probably, is never going to happen, but it could be lessened by maybe 70% or 80%.”

Prayer writes History

Clare continued, “All of this good can be accomplished if only we will continue to pray for the President’s safety, and also for his humility. Being a new Christian, it is easy to get self-confident, and Donald needs a heart for the poor of our nation. The Lord has given us the poor so that we could prove our love for Him through them. Yes, the poor are God’s gift to us to cherish and nurture. They are our opportunity to show our great love for Jesus, because Jesus lives in them.

“President Trump is so very much in need of this kind of continuing favour with God. Please pray for humility and tenderness towards those who cannot be shining examples of health, wealth and success. I don’t think he realises that God’s choice for him was prosperity. But God’s choice for others may be poverty. This is an agreed upon thing before you are sent into the world.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…” Jeremiah 1:5, KJV

“I’ve been told by the Lord that the soul is given a choice about the circumstances of their birth. Which begs the question, “Why would anyone choose to be poor?” I believe that in those moments, understanding is imparted to the soul to understand ALL the HIDDEN dangers of being rich. And because the soul is in Heaven, it doesn’t choose according to the values of the world, but the values of Heaven. The Lord promises to deliver him who cares for the poor. He promises to not surrender him to the will of his foes. Please pray that Donald will receive this correction from Christians around him.

“If his attitude does not change, I fear for the President because God is the One who is protecting him, and I don’t want to see him like King Nebuchadnezzar, or turned over to the will of his enemies. You can see the stakes are high. The Lord has given us a choice, to live or to die. Let’s persevere until the Lord releases us from prayer. Timing is critical.”

Clare reminded us that Sunday, 3 February 2019 will be the last day of the second week of intense travailing prayer with tears and fasting which the Lord has called His prayer warriors to undertake. We do not know if this time may be prolonged.

Jesus addresses the President

Clare asked, “Lord, have you anything to add?”

At this point Jesus had a personal message for the President, “Donald, do not force Me to take My Hand off you. Study My life. Imitate My meekness. Make the Beatitudes your daily creed. Observe how I stood before rulers. You are accustomed to applaud and honour the great ones for their accomplishments. That is in direct contrast to Me, who applauded the simplicity of life and littleness of the poor and sickly. They had time for Me, and they had a heart for Me, which the rich did not.

“I experienced their suffering and entered into their hearts, living there with them. I saw their upbringing and the constant wounding of spirit they suffered from circumstances totally out of their control. I lived with the lepers and dried their tears. I knew the desolation of the prostitute and her longing for love and respect. I made Myself in the form of human weakness, so that I could experience firsthand the trials they suffered. I am not making excuses for the lazy. I am opening hearts to you so you can understand.

“The poor you shall always have with you. And they do serve a very important function in your lives. Life is hard, and you have it within your means to remove some of the most pressing burdens of the poor, Donald. Whatever you do to them, you have done to Me.

Jesus speaks on the danger of presumption

Jesus continued addressing President Trump, “You are perilously close to losing all you have gained, through presumption. All that you have, and have accomplished, has been permitted by Me. Nothing you have —not your intellect, your drive or wisdom; not even your health, is yours. All is a gift from Me that you have done well with. But pride precedes a fall, and in your moment of greatest victory, you are the most vulnerable. Allow Me to open your Bible randomly, and read what I put before you—between the lines. It will apply to you in some way. Be alert and expecting Me to speak to you personally. The life of Moses and his ending are very good material for you. And My word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. Study it:

“ Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O Lord, according to thy word. Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me thy judgments. My soul is continually in my hand: yet I do not forget thy law. The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts. Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.” Psalm 119:105-112, KJV

“Through this you will discover Me, how I feel and think. You will learn compassion and meekness. You will take appropriate care of the poor and down-trodden. And I will in turn sustain and protect you.

“And finally, do not take the credit for your victories. It belongs with Me—and Me alone. There are millions around the world praying for you, Donald. That is why you have had supernatural victories. It is not your skill alone that has accomplished so much. You have been an outstanding manager of what I have endowed you with, accounting for thirty percent of your success. The other seventy percent belongs to the army of believers, some of them disabled and poor, inspired by Me to pray for you.

“You and I are doing this together. I want you to acknowledge that in your heart, knowing that you would not have survived to be inaugurated without My supernatural protection. I am with you. Walk with Me in humility… the humility of Moses… and do contemplate his end.”

Moses surveyed from afar the Promised Land that God could not allow him to enter

Pray for the President

“God is calling for President Trump’s heart so that He can truly order his steps. He has spoken through His prophets, so let’s lift up the President before the Throne of Grace that he will be stripped of all ego, self-assurance and self-will, and anything in him that stands in the way of God. Let us surround him as God breaks him and moulds him into the likeness of our Christ, for the President’s good and for the glory of God. Let us ask Jesus to melt his heart with His Love, and soften his heart with His Word.”

[Written by a fellow prayer warrior].

Note from So Greatly Loved

President Trump is doing amazing exploits which the mainstream media do not want you to know. I quote below from David Zublick: his channel ‘Truth Unsealed.’ I have no means of verifying the information given in this video, and some may find it offensive, as I do in part. He states that “Since Trump took office there have been over 71,000 indictments… Many well known political and global elites have been filed in criminal courts across the nation. Charges have been brought to include treason, election fraud, political elite roles in 9/11, mass murder in Haiti and elsewhere…

“The entire border crisis for which President Trump is trying to get a wall built and bring it under control, is part of an overall plan of his not only to protect the borders of the United States and stop people from coming into the country who are rapists, murderers trying to harm our children, but to end the child trafficking network that is multi-national and is being controlled by powerful figures within the US Government, including many within the House of Representatives, some even within the Senate…”

The President Needs Our Prayers

God will not share His Glory with another; all Glory is His and His alone. Intercessors honour and greatly respect President Trump. We are heavily committed in prayer for him as he endeavours to restore righteousness to his nation. My personal prayer for the President, is one that I pray daily over myself: Micah 6:8, “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, [being merciful to others] and to walk humbly with thy God?”

The future is promising indeed for America and the world, provided that the President acknowledges to the Lord that he can do nothing without His help; all Christians need to humbly acknowledge this.
