Awesome Visits to Heaven During Communion

These are recent testimonies from some of the Heart Dwellers Prayer Warriors team during their own personal Lord’s Suppers.

The Lord has been teaching us clearly that it is His express desire that we ALL celebrate Communion with Him, every day. Here is an excerpt from one of our videos:

Jesus began, “You, My Bride, must be nourished on My Body and My Blood as well. This is our point of physical union: the bread becomes a part of you physically, and because of that, you and I become One. You are fruitful and bear spiritual children, as well as being strengthened for the journey.

“I want each of you to design your own communion service using, the Last Supper as your guide. To the degree that you believe, to that degree I will be present to you [emphasis mine].

“As things become darker and darker, I want to strengthen you completely in every possible way. The reception of My Body and Blood is one of many ways, but profoundly important to Me.”

Jesus then quoted from John 6:47-51, “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

“I long to be received into the heart of My Bride. I long to share this communion with you. I long that we should be One in every possible way. Do not deny Me access to your bodies through communion. Do not abstain from receiving Me because you have fallen. It is the sick that need communion the most. First, confess to Me what you have done, sincerely from the heart repenting, and then you may receive.”

Just after that message from Jesus, Clare wrote ‘Communion Service, Very Simple.’ In this, she laid out a very easy-to-follow pattern for people to use, for those who would like to celebrate with the Lord in an honouring way. This teaching can be found, along with all the other teachings we have about Communion, in an Album on Vimeo called ‘Communion.’

Experiences during Communion

Recently Clare shared an email with the Prayer Warriors. One of our men had written to her to share his experience with the Lord during communion. This was his account:

“I have to say, the instructions you sent for the Lord’s Suppers are a great blessing! I have made a new devotion to the Lord with it. I have, with His TREMENDOUS grace, devoted my mornings to Him. It has been SUCH a blessing to me, you will only know in Heaven. I have met many of the great Saints during the ‘hug’ section. It is truly true that the Saints in Heaven attend our Celebrations. But the most precious thing of all has been the closeness I now feel with Jesus.

“Did I say thank you already? THANK you for obeying our Lord Jesus in helping us see Him as He truly is, the tender Bridegroom, the purest Lover ever, the most amazing, kind, gentle, strong, loving Husband and God and Lover ever and ever.”

He went on to talk about his visit to Heaven then:

Children in Heaven

“I had a beautiful experience today. Jesus took me to Heaven, and I was flooded with little children. I would say they were as tall as my leg, barely over my knees. They all thanked me for praying for them… I soon got to see a LOT more, each running to other persons as I was there… I think they liked us so much that they took our names for themselves. I had been praying for aborted children to be baptized in the water and blood of Jesus that gushed from His side. Could there be a correlation there?”

Clare circulated Sam’s email and wrote, “Heart Dwellers, the Lord’s Suppers are not meant to rival mass on the Internet or in churches. They are given primarily as a powerful tool to get closer to the Lord and make your prayers more powerful. Sam has truly connected and I’m thrilled. So much wonderful fruit will come from this. It has become SO simple, simple enough for all.”

Soon there were even more replies from the Prayer Warriors, with more precious experiences with the Lord. One of the women wrote:

Dear Sam,

“I could HUG you… I really could! Thanks to your awesome testimonial, I’ve moved on a bit.

“Yesterday, although I didn’t see anything during my Lord’s Supper, I was aware of Saint Padre Pio walking up to me and saying that he is praying for me…

“But today, I was really THERE! I saw Jesus sitting down and there were lots and lots of very young children rushing around, excited to be with Jesus. Some came up to me, but I didn’t hear any of them speak. Standing near Jesus was Saint Padre Pio holding a little child in his arms and smiling. It was very clear, as though I was really THERE — not at all hazy, like visions can be for me.

“I pondered on what made it different today. One thing that may have helped is that I was so relaxed — chatting to the Saints during my Lord’s Supper and telling them how I appreciate their prayers for those I’m praying for, and adding how much I would love to see them.

“I’m sharing this because your beautiful testimony made such a difference to me, and hopefully mine will help someone, too. I was RELAXED… EXPECTING something to happen… and EXCITED. Anyway, it worked for me.”

And then one of the other men wrote:

A truly awesome experience

“This morning while I was in Dwelling prayer, I saw the Lord hanging on His Cross. I was at His feet, kissing and washing them. The song ‘Let Your Pain Touch My Pain,’ was playing in the background.

“I floated up to Him and embraced all His bloody torso, warmly. His Blood flowing copiously over me. Soon, I was up next to Him, nailed on my own cross to His left. Holy Spirit was upon me very strongly during all of this. I have been carrying a cross of sadness for lost souls the Lord is grieving over, that we have been interceding for.

“Later on, while celebrating the Lord’s Supper, many Saints were present. Saints Francis, Faustina, and Lawrence of the Resurrection (He is a French Carmelite Lay brother from the 7th century)… they were all among them. Our Lady was with us, as well. Jesus and I were in the center. He was still a bloody pulp in my arms.

“As we (Mary, the Saints, and I) prayed for the lost, and for His Church, and for the Heart Dwellers, I saw myself taking a balm with two fingers of my right hand and applying it to each of His wounds—which stopped bleeding and closed it up. And then I would wash them with water. When I got to the Crown of Thorns, I was given a bottle of fragrant ointment, which I poured over His head, and the thorny Crown dissolved.

“After washing His head, hair, and face, I received Him (in Communion) and we all joined our hands in worship and thanksgiving. And He was raised up, Glorious and Shining, with a great smile on His face. (Which is I usually how see Him.) And we held each other, turning slowly in Heaven, among the clouds.

“He takes such comfort from us, Family. Our love for Him and for others through prayer and charity is a balm, and the washing of His wounds.”

Next, one of the women wrote. This one goes a little off the subject of the Lord’s Supper, but it’s a powerful testimony to how we can re-enter ANY time in His life here on Earth and be with Him. Especially the hours of His Passion.

She began, “It was a while ago, but I told Him I would keep Him company in the prison before His crucifixion. And I could see Him clearly. He was sitting on a kind of cold slab. The soldiers didn’t see me, and they were taunting Him. I sat so close to Him and put my arms around Him, and His head was bent some. I could sense He was suffering so much, in a lot of pain; they must have beaten Him all the more.

“He just had me stay there with Him with my arms around Him holding Him close to me, trying to comfort Him as best I could. It wasn’t a long vision. Just enough that I was glad that I could afford Him some consolation. I don’t even think we spoke any words, because we really didn’t need to. We just had to be close to each other, and I just had to hold Him.”

The email continued, “Jesus said once to Gabrielle Bossis, in the book ‘He and I‘, “Visit Me in My day...” Since He sees Time all in one glance, you can be with Him in Gethsemane, which He really, really loves. I’ve been there, too, with Him—holding Him as I know others have. And this is for just everyone to do!

“So, don’t hesitate to just go back in His time in your imagination, this gift that He gave us, (our imaginations) that we can be with Him in any way that we can imagine. And He just feels everything for real. For instance, He said (again, this is from the book ‘He and I’) “Take My hand, Gabrielle. Come be with Me in the Garden as if it’s that very night. Even though I am God, I am very distressed, and your presence is comforting to Me. Oh, how I need the presence of My loved ones around Me!’”

“How wonderful it is that He allows us to touch Him this way! It is so sweet to let us know that WE are a balm and comfort to Him—just as He is to us. How precious is this Love He gives us— to cherish and hold in return! There are just are no words…”

If we love Jesus with all our heart He will not allow the enemy to deceive us

Maybe you are sceptical about the visits to Heaven that some are experiencing nowadays during their personal, daily Lord’s Supper? This is of God! The enemy would never have anything to do with something that brings us so very much closer to Jesus and strengthens our faith.

First of all, in our individual Lord’s Suppers we spend time in worship, then we search our hearts in depth, and repent of all known sin before we begin our Communion. We know that imagination is a gift we have all been given. We think prayerfully about Jesus, longing to see Him, and the Holy Spirit does the rest. Our hearts are His, our will is His, and there is nothing coming between us and our Lord. He will never allow us to make a mistake.

In June 2017, I was rushed to hospital by ambulance in the middle of the night. I had to have an emergency operation; they told me later that I could have died. My fellow prayer warriors were in prayer for me. As I thought about Jesus, loving Him in my heart, I saw Him come and sit on my hospital bed day after day, looking lovingly at me. Oh, those eyes of love and compassion… I’m lost for words.

Jesus is still suffering today

Abortion is breaking His heart. He feels the excruciating pain of babies who are literally torn limb from limb in their mothers’ womb. Those who survive an attempted abortion are given no medical attention whatsoever and are left to die in agony in a bucket. Their cries must be heartbreaking to hear. Jesus knows what those babies were destined to be. Furthermore, He sees the sons and daughters who would have been born to them, and that their destinies had been denied them too. His tender heart is utterly broken.

The barbaric trafficking of young children, who die very soon from their horrendous internal injuries, is also breaking the heart of our Lord.

Jesus also weeps over the terror and excruciating pain of the many victims of satanic sacrifice, kept in the dark for days on end and given no food. Then they are tortured prior to being murdered and offered in sacrifice to Satan.

Likewise, Jesus grieves over the victims of domestic violence… over the murderers… over the suffering of the homeless and starving… over the extortioners and the drug addicts… the list is endless. Yes, without a shadow of a doubt Jesus is still suffering today; He longs for us to console Him and has told us so.

Notes from So Greatly Loved

‘Let Your Pain Touch My Pain’

This beautiful song, referred to in one of the testimonies, was written by Ezekiel du Bois:

Echoes in my mind, mirrors back in Time. Spirits yet entwined, softly speaking. Embers in my soul, layers yet unfold, Hearts are open wide calling Your name.

Let your pain touch My pain.

Let your wounds touch My wounded heart. Let your dying touch My dying.

Let your pain touch My pain.

Let your wounds touch My wounded heart. Let your dying touch My dying.

And be healed.

Passions fall away, living for today.

Garden filled with grace quietly waiting. Banquet of your love, flowing from your side. Marriage bed of suffering for Your Bride.

Let your pain touch My pain.

Let your wounds touch My wounded heart. Let your dying touch My dying.

Let your pain touch My pain.

Let your wounds touch My wounded heart. Let your dying touch My dying.

And be healed.

Let Your pain touch My pain.

Let your wounds touch My wounded heart. Let your dying touch My dying.

Let your pain touch My pain.

Let your wounds touch My wounded heart.

Let your dying touch My dying.

And be healed. And be healed. And be healed.

He and I’

This book, which is referred to above and is one of my own favourite books, is the Journal written by Gabrielle Bossis (1874-1950) in which she shared her own personal experiences with Jesus. She was a French Catholic, and a successful career woman, who had an exceptionally close walk with Jesus. Her frequent encounters with Him are beautifully recorded in this inspiring book; it frequently sells out at Amazon. French speakers may be interested to know that ‘He and I’ is available in the original French, ‘Lui et Moi.’

Going Deeper in the Heart of Jesus

Testimony: My life transformed.

Worship has been a large, very precious, part of my everyday life since Jesus brought me into a much deeper, more intimate relationship with Him. I owe a great debt of gratitude to the Still Small Voice channel where the anointed teachings began totally transforming my Christian life some two and a half years ago. I have known Jesus for 56 years, and heard Him speaking frequently in my heart for 51 of those years. However, I had no idea how much more Jesus has for His children to be enjoying until I ‘happened’ to click on Still Small Voice one day out of curiosity.

Jesus Himself shares His heart on this channel. Through it thousands of Christians worldwide are entering into greater depth in their walk with the Lord, as I am. Many of us are now moving under fresh anointings, discovering new talents and abilities granted to use in previously undreamed of ministries for the Lord. The fruit borne by the Still Small Voice channel in new ministries birthed, can only be described as remarkable. This teaching is too good to keep to myself, so I am sharing some excerpts from messages on the channel that have greatly blessed me. It is no wonder that the enemy hates this anointed channel and does his utmost to discredit it. The devil trembles indeed to see countless numbers of Christians becoming so liberated now, through this input from above, and moving into their own God-appointed destinies, far beyond their wildest dreams.

On the Still Small Voice channel, Jesus addresses us as His Brides: those who are making sure they are ready for the return of their heavenly Bridegroom to catch them away to Heaven in the Rapture. The word ‘Rapture’ means ‘to snatch away out of danger.’ Many people around the world understand that we recently very narrowly missed the outbreak of WW3, the so-called ‘war to end all wars.’ The world situation is calmer now, but could easily change with little warning. It is very important indeed for Christians to be ready for Jesus’ return.

Jesus’ parable in Matthew 25 in which ten young women are waiting for the coming of the Bridegroom, describes the day in which we live. Jesus said that five of them were wise and five were foolish. The wise had oil in their lamps, plus plenty of oil to spare: they were filled with Holy Spirit and ready for their Lord’s return to take them to Heaven, where they would enjoy the Wedding Supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:9). The five foolish ones, on the other hand, ran out of oil and therefore missed the Bridegroom’s coming; the door was shut and they were left behind. This looks as though Jesus is saying that many in the church will not be ready for His coming. What a warning! How many are heeding it, I wonder?

Are we forgetful Brides?

Jesus talks about many issues on the Still Small Voice channel. In the following excerpt He is speaking on Worship: “Some of you, My Brides, are forgetting to spend substantial time in worship with Me. I have so many new anointings and gifts for you, My Brides, but you must enter into praise and thanksgiving. There is nothing I will deny a praising, thankful soul. Eventually, every desire of her heart will be fulfilled. But as you throw off the fetters of the day like old rags, and reach your hearts up into the Heavenly courts to worship, My very arms and heart swing open to receive you and together we enter into worship and your soul is restored. As you sing about My Beauty, I cannot help but reciprocate, My Lovely Brides. Yes, I sing over you! In worship, while you are driving, in the store, and in the mornings, especially. Yes, I love to sing over you in the mornings and establish your day on the solid foundation of My Love and Trust in you.

“I love to remind you of your beauty before Me. It is not a beauty of this world, it is Heavenly, and a masterpiece to be appreciated by all of Heaven. For not only are you the redeemed, but you are as well My Very Spouse for Eternity. And how lovely you are in the garments of praise. When you sing to Me, when you enter into the lyrics even without singing, but your heart is expressed through them, there is a certain honey that is released. Spiritual Honey, both in fragrance ascending to the Throne, and a calming blanket of adoration that ascends to enfold Me as well.

“You do not yet realise what your worship means to Me. If you could see the pockets of darkness around this Earth, you would realise that truly Earth has many dungeons… places where joy and worship are not practised, places where I am not known, places ridden with crime and sin. Then you would see the twinkling lights that spring up in the darkness and shine, twinkle and pulsate with praise. Yes, what you are beholding are praising souls who are glorifying me from the heart – either in song, in supplication or in appreciation of all that I have made.”

All Creation is Praising God

“It is true that nothing should be a mystery to you, nothing. All things revert back to Me. But you have not yet heard the symphony of the stars, the crickets, the many waters, the fragrant winds. In each of these elements Creation praises Me and therefore I am now calling you all to a higher form of praise.”

Clare added, “you know, that’s interesting, because I felt that when I was sitting under the gigantic tree in our yard. I just felt the presence of the Lord so strong in the rustling of the leaves.” Jesus continued, “Worship Me in spirit and in truth like never before, but begin with a heart of thanksgiving, noticing all I have placed around you for your enjoyment. And the rustling of leaves as you walk by. Do you know they are clapping their hands? Marvel of marvels, they are praising Me who lives inside of you! Yes, they have intelligence and knowledge enough to worship. Have you not read, “The trees of the field will clap their hands?”

Isaiah 55:12You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”

Psalm 98:8The rivers will clap hands together and the mountains will sing … and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”

“Yes” Jesus said, “over and over again, all of Creation worships Me.”

Romans 8:19For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 20. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 21. the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.”

Jesus continued, “How could Creation suffer if it did not have any consciousness? It couldn’t. So you see, everything in union with man is expecting, anticipating liberation along with you. So, when you walk in the park or the forest and hear the rustling of leaves, you are hearing My Creation worshipping Me. Will you not join in and acknowledge them? Do you see? Your thanksgiving and worship are a part of everything I’ve made. There is nothing that does not sing out My praises.”

Psalm 19 “The Heavens proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

Clare added, “It’s interesting here, as an aside, it says ‘they have no speech and they use no words.’ Well, we know now that there are vibrations that can be turned into sound. And you can actually hear the music of the spheres, the music of the stars and the planets. We have the technology now to hear that, which we’ve never had before. And no doubt they are communicating the Glory of God to one another!

“And another Scripture that came to mind was: Revelation 14 “And I heard music from Heaven which resembled the sound of many waters and the roar of loud thunder; and the music which I heard was like that of harpists.”

Jesus continued, “So, My Brides, what I am telling you is happy is the soul who worships Me; great are the gifts to be showered on such a one as this. Come into My courts with praise and watch the doors of Heaven swing open and reveal My Presence in your midst… Allow the ebullient honey of My Love to pour over your weary souls, and bask in the fire of My presence. Allow Me to restore and equip you anew for the battles ahead, the challenges you face, things unheard of that I have already equipped you for.

“Yes, enter My Heart singing praises and allow Me to endow you with a spark from the eternal fires of My Love. And as you go out into the world, the fire of that love burns. It burns everything it comes in contact with. That is why Satan hates praise, hates musicians, and preeminently hates the intimacy we share in the chambers of My Heart. Protect this priceless gift and dwell with Me, for truly your God inhabits the praises of His People. “You are holy, O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel.” Psalm 22

“Keep your heart purely for Me. Tend to Me, Clare, meet My needs.” Jesus is talking about keeping Him company, just being there for the Lord above all other things. You know, there are conquests that we can go on, there are all kinds of things we can do for the Lord. But the one thing that He values so much, aside from setting the captives free, because that’s part of our job as Christians, is our company. Our loving company and being there, being present to Him.

“Your time in worship, listening to worship music, praising Me through the sunsets and the crickets and the snowflakes – worship and praise will elevate your minds even higher beyond the death that is everywhere in this world. Worship is simply recognising Who I am and thanking Me for My care and benefits. You can do that anywhere, anytime and I will respond by drawing you up into Myself.

“The music is very helpful when it is anointed to worship Me, but you don’t have to have music to worship. You don’t have to open your mouth – many times that will be inappropriate. Worship in spirit and in truth. Magnifying Me in your heart and mind – that, indeed, is worshipping in spirit and in truth. Sometimes opening your mouth makes you self-conscious and takes away from our deep communion.

“Worship as you are led, not as you think others say you should worship. You are not impressing anyone here. We are alone together in the sanctuary of your heart. No one is expecting a performance. I just want your gratitude and worship.

You Have Abandoned Your First Love

Clare shared on another occasion that she had missed her close fellowship with Jesus terribly. She said, “Losing God and losing His Presence is everything. Just everything.” Jesus took her to Revelation, chapter 2, in which He had addressed the church in Ephesus: “These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lamp stands. I know your deeds, your labour and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate those who are evil, and you have tested and exposed as liars those who falsely claim to be apostles. Without growing weary, you have persevered and endured many things for my name, But this I have against you: You have abandoned your first Love. Therefore, keep in mind how far you have fallen! Repent and perform the deeds you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.” Revelation 2

Jesus began to speak, “Clare, there is never a moment I am away from your side. You are the one who drifts from Me, not I from you. There is too much busy work in your home. You need to run it like a cloister or you will never go where I want to take you. Less involvement with the world, My Precious. Less and less and less.”

“Well, My love, you know I am no discriminator of persons. I have a great depth for each one of My Brides, but most never even approach it, let alone rest in it. You have been there many, many times – but your involvement with the house is distracting you… Enough is enough, and at this point it’s way too much. You will find great joy in My arms, Clare. Alone with Me is all you’ll ever need. How surprised I am that you do not avail yourself of that every moment of the day. If you would begin to practice that, seeing yourself held securely in My arms, you will see a change in your attitude from moment to moment. And you will go deeper with Me, much deeper.

“You will find more time to savour My presence and in that be transformed, going deeper into My love and heavenly provision for your spirit. The secret is to break-away. Most, including yourself, look forward to our times together as a sort of dessert after the main course of your duties everyday. May I say, you have it backwards? Your time with Me is the main course and the duties are on the periphery.

“This is the only way you will attain to that depth you are hungering for, My Love. Break away, break away… Continually throughout the day. Come to rest in My arms even when things are getting more and more hectic.”

Clare replied, “But Lord, how do I do that? When things get like that I begin to stress and push it to get it done and out of the way!”

“That’s what I am addressing right now.” Jesus replied. “I am the main meal. Those other things are simply appetisers, unappetising as they are to you. They are like the condiments on the table. But in My arms is where you will find your life and nourishment. Lose your life in the world to find Mine in Heaven.” “Lord,” Clare replied, “I often think I would be happier in a much simpler environment.” But He answered me, “Practice simplicity in this environment, that’s the challenge. Oh, My Beloved, I ache for you as you ache for Me. There is not a moment of the day that I don’t long to see one sweet glance of your eyes. My heart soars when you look at Me with such longing. I hate to see confusion and stress tearing you away from Me. And this is the case with all of you, My Brides. How I long to see your searching eyes as they come in contact with Me, as you are looking for My presence.”

He continues, “This is the beauty of the eternal relationship we have. It exists outside the boundaries of space and time. It truly is eternal. Though your days are filled with time-consuming work, your relationship with Me is not subject to these same laws. This is why you can find Me at any moment by your side, drinking in the vision of the longing expression in your eyes and on your heart and mind. And My response is ever the same, ‘So…what’s keeping you from Me in this moment? Is it that important?’

“Today you got to the point where nothing was as important as seeking and finding Me. And I was there for you.” I answered Him, ‘Yes, I certainly did. When I got the Church at Ephesus, “Return to your first love.” That cut me so deeply I told everyone, ‘I’m going into prayer, and I’m not going to come out any time soon.’ And I came out a couple of hours later when everyone was gone.

Jesus continued, “I sent you that Rhema (anointed word that strikes you forcibly) because I missed you, Clare. I knew how you would take it. I knew you would immediately repent and seek My face. And you did not disappoint Me. I did not mean the harsh threat for you, dearest – I just wanted to call your attention to the fact that you were lapsing into more and more involvement with the world… again. And we both know what that eventually leads to…

“Yes, My delightful Brides, become so entwined and wrapped up in Me… Yes! Yes! I want to be your one and only distraction. You know what it feels like to fall in love and long for your Beloved. This is indeed how I long for you. But so few long for Me with that same intensity.

“Long for Me. Be distracted by Me. Be pulled away by Me – become forgetful of all around you by Me. This is the kind of love I ache to have from My Brides. As the saying goes, ‘Be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good.’

“Yes, yes, I know… Your jobs, your duties – yes, they must be done. But remember back to a time when you had first fallen in love; your very first love. All you could do was long for that hour to come where the two of you would be together. This is the kind of love I long for from you.

“Oh, how beautiful the soul is that has cast aside the world to have this with Me. How perfectly their longing shall be rewarded, for there is not enough Heaven on Earth to give to such a one as this. Pray for this grace, My Blessed ones, pray much for this grace. And practise searching Me out with your spiritual eyes. Every moment of the day. And when our hearts touch, do your best to go away into a place of quietness and prayer, where we can dwell together and you can be regenerated. And I can be consoled by your love.”

There is a Price to Pay

“My people, if you want to draw closer to Heaven, you must learn to deny yourself and walk in self-denial. You cannot continue to feed the flesh and expect eternal rewards, for the flesh is in opposition to the Spirit and one cancels out the power of the other. So, if you want closer encounters with Me and with Heaven, deny yourselves some choice morsel and come into My presence stronger in resolve than ever. You must reach up and out of yourselves as you seek My fellowship and the sweetness of My presence.

“What price are you willing to pay, My beloved ones? What are you willing to deny yourself? The rich young ruler had done all the law commanded, but his heart was still with his possessions and future inheritance. The idea of disappointing his father was also something he could not even fathom… a slap in the face for his father’s years of planning and toil. Yes, relatives and security will keep you from your highest calling if you allow them to.

“I am calling you to press into My Heart. Dwell in My Heart. Do good wherever you find an opportunity, grow in virtue and fight against the temptations that assail you, even by calling your love for Me to mind. A demon cannot gain control of a heart that is full and running over with Love for Me.

“As you grow in virtue, I will begin to release to you the secret dreams of your heart. I will lead you with My Love and you will have a peace that is beyond what the world gives you, even in the lowliest of positions, even in the most difficult circumstances. You will have My peace. I will lead you step-by-step if you live in the present time according to My precious will. I know where I am leading you. In many cases, I have put a spark of love in your life for the very thing you will one day be doing. I will confirm it to you. I love to see the hopeless come to life when I breathe My promises into their hearts and minds So, My children, let me encourage you now, You have a very special destiny, each and every one of you. One that only you can fulfil – no one else can fulfil it. Seek Me until you find Me and I will reveal it to you. I bless you now with a hunger for Me and My calling.”

Clare added, “That’s built on intimacy with Him in prayer. It is a deep and abiding heart-relationship with your Creator and best friend. To worship and adore Him in spirit and in truth brings you into the throne room of His heart where all life and joy is manifested. Living for Jesus is the most wonderful adventure anyone on this Earth can have. It is supremely rewarding. And the sweetest thing you will ever experience in your life is His Love for you. As well as the deepest challenges and pain as you carry your cross the way He has asked you to. “Deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Me.” He will empower you every step along the way. He will protect, strengthen and complete the good work He has begun in you. Don’t be afraid to lay your life down at His feet and say, “Lord, whatever Your will is for my life, I give You my life to live.” And remember, He said: “He who would save his life will lose it, but he who will lose his life for My sake will find it.” Matt 16:25

Choosing Worship Songs, and Avoiding Distractions

Clare’s advice is to allow Holy Spirit to choose our worship songs. She says, “I discovered a wonderful way to help me in worship: to allow Holy Spirit to pick the songs. If you make a playlist with all your favourite songs on it, and put them in any order, it doesn’t matter. And then click on “shuffle”, the shuffle option in iTunes, Holy Spirit can pick the songs He wants. It’s very edifying, because I know when a song comes up, it’s what’s on His heart and mind. And He has surprised me with a few things – really sweet things that I just wasn’t expecting. So that’s a head’s up for all of us who use iTunes and have that shuffle option. Terry MacAlmon is a very anointed worship leader. Terry’s music, to me, is more like what heavenly worship service would be like – or is like.

Clare added, “For those of you who have a zillion distractions during worship and prayer, I have a couple of suggestions that work for me and really help. One is to keep a pencil and pad nearby and write down any “to do” things when you think of them and then go right back to prayer. A lot of times our mind is spinning, spinning, spinning and when it begins to slow down, forgotten things register suddenly in our minds like popcorn. Another suggestion is to ask the Lord to help you enter into, and at the same time refocus, on worship and prayer until you can finally connect with Him and He takes charge of your thoughts.”

Links: Some of My Favourite Songs

I find Terry MacAlmon’s anointed worship songs lift me up into the very heart of Jesus. Terry has understood the heart of worship in a particularly deep way. I have a number of his albums. My favourite is his ‘Live Worship from the World Prayer Center.’ YouTube has a good number of Terry MacAlmon’s songs. You could make your own playlist and set it on autoplay. Julie True is another of my firm favourites. Several of her albums are also on YouTube, and likewise Kari Jobe, and others.

The lyrics of Terry MacAlmon’s song, ‘This is the Time’ beautifully express how Holy Spirit is leading us in worship now: “This is the time when true worshippers will worship Him. These are the days when My Father’s ways will be known to men. This is the hour when the Spirit’s power will move again, all across the land, as we worship Him in spirit and in truth. Holy, holy, holy is Your name. Worthy, worthy let all the earth proclaim. Mighty, mighty, there is no God like You, and we worship You in spirit and in truth.”
