The Seven Year Plan is Concluding this year (2022) - now being followed by "THE IMMINENCY PROGRAMME"
2015 to 2022 Ministry Plan towards True Revival
Part 3: Intercession Team 1: The Girls!
Now God through Lindsay is bringing about a new home base team of intercession ......
Now in ministry in N Wales Now in Heaven Now in Heaven Bringing forth a new team from Whithorn
Known affectionately as "the girls" this team stood together for years to bring about the type of revival witnessed in third world conditions for in this team was a longing for all to receive Christ Jesus.
Great battles came against these girls, but they stood together in the NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, fully committed, fully surrendered to bring the conditions for real revival.
Following are intercessions with prophecies into this through David P Griffiths. Read on .....
Word from the Lord through David P Griffiths, 04/06/15
“The ‘Seek Ye First’ Business Plan,
Part 3: The Intercessions – Team (1)”
THIS RELATED TO THE ORIGINAL TEAM and new word is coming in relation to the new team in 2018 at Whithorn, Scotland - we are patiently waiting on God now in 2020 that in this year - the new team will come ........
“Now, what is the Spirit saying over a variety of issues? For thus saith the Lord: I give thee the cry of the Spirit. For hearing the voice of the Spirit in intercession, as in Romans 8, which thou as a group must read & understand, is the key to success. Where 2 or 3 are agreed on anything, it shall be done, Jesus Christ Himself in the pre-eminent position.
“So, as you hear from My Spirit, the victories come. Be prepared for devils to manifest, for thou will expose the devil’s plans, & his activities.
“Point Number (1): Family. Now, what is significant here is that immediate families have been kept on board, but outer families have not. So, what therefore is the intercession? There is Margaret’s family, Marjorie’s family, thy own family; families all taken in by the new Western ideologies that have no place in the British Constitution.
“So, in other words, had this taken place in the 1950s, they would all be thinking a different way. So, there needs to be an intercession in relation to the ideologies of Western countries. For these outer families, that is, those not living with you, are not being influenced by the Word of God, but by the philosophies warned about in My Word. So, there is an intercession here, in relation to ideologies that bind. Of course, there is a different scenario with Ruth, & this will be continued as the intercession flourishes.
“Now, within this whole sphere comes the whole scenario of the ministry. There is a new form of Christianity in Western countries that does not involve the dedication thou hast shown, as shown in the Maynard James recordings. No passion for the prayer meetings & Bible studies.
“So, I have called thee to fulfil My Word, & bring these families on board to the cause. It is possible, & here is the intercession to bring about the conditions for families to hear the voice of God, rather than the ideologies they live by.
“So, this is Area (1): the outer family.
Area (2): Properties – What is the depth of this blockage, there needing to be intercession relating to this. Be prepared for spirits to manifest. There needeth to be resources coming in; for I sayeth unto thee: My calling upon you all is to fulfil this 7-year plan; & to fulfil this plan, thou needeth the resources, & not the strain. There has to be a victory here.
“Thou hast been called, & I am declaring the victory of the Lord in relation to Numbers 3 & 9 Colwyn Crescent, & also with the bungalow on Colwyn Heights. There needs to be a breakthrough now, & I call thee to intercede in this cause.
Area Number (3): Sheila – For there has to be an intercession here, to stop the wandering of mind & of thought; to bring full understanding of a situation. For Sheila’s family needs to be brought into Area (1) intercession as well; for what has happened here has been an extreme of philosophical thinking attacking the Spirit.
“I have called thee to rise above all this. For thou hast declared My victory; & thou art to go to Sheila with an attitude of victory; of a woman to be lifted up & built up from the depths of despair to the glories of God; of the attacks of ideology, to the moving by the Spirit again. One has a mighty work.
“So, there are the initial areas of Group (1) intercession: the outer families, the house sales, & Sheila. This I have called thee to do; & further intercessions will come, particularly relating to Sri Lanka to Tibet; of the opening of the doors there.
“These urgent intercessions are so important. Be prepared to have visions. Be prepared to cast out devils, & bring the conditions for a release from the attack of those who have threatened to destroy thee.
“For I am higher than all of this. Stand fast therefore in the liberty of the Spirit. The victory is in thine hands. Go forth & intercede. Read Romans 8 together, particularly the end part of the intercession. “Rejoice, My children! Rejoice!”
1: Revelation from the Word of God as a Basis for Intercession:
Shalom Intercession Group, 21/05/15
Scripture: Psalm 133 KJV - THIS CONTINUES WITH THE NEW HOME BASE TEAM.......
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
There needs to be complete unity between the Head (Jesus) & the body (The Church). This is unity of the Spirit (the ‘precious ointment’) i.e. can only be achieved through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Lack of unity within the ministry re money is causing a blockage in finances. This is to be prayed through in intercession.
Scripture: Haggai 1: 5-8
1 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,
2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.
3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,
4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?
5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
8 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord.
9 Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
10 Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit.
11 And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
12 Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the Lord their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the Lord their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the Lord.
13 Then spake Haggai the Lord's messenger in the Lord's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the Lord.
14 And the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God,
15 In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.
Rhema Word: verse 6 shows what has been happening with ministry finances – or how it has appeared.
Verse 7 “Consider your ways” means “Examine yourselves.” We must all do that individually in this matter.
Scripture: II Corinthians 10: 5-6
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
These principles of intercession show us the way to deal with this stronghold & pull it down.
‘Lack of unity because of perceptions, based on previous hurts, & strategies of the enemy to create offence & division.
‘DELIVER US FROM EVIL.’
‘Because of these things, the godless prosper & the godly remnant suffers.
Haggai 1:14 names Zerubbabel, governor of Judah. He was of royal blood, & is named in the genealogy of Matthew 1 (that of Joseph, husband of Mary the mother of Jesus). Joshua, the High Priest, is also named in Haggai 1:14.
The Lord stirred up the spirits of the remnant, High Priest & governor, to work in the house of the Lord.
This is the Bible College of Wales Continuing, focused on rebuilding God’s house instead of own.
Haggai 2 King James Version (KJV)
2 In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the Lord by the prophet Haggai, saying,
2 Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying,
3 Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?
4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the Lord; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the Lord, and work: for I am with you, saith the Lord of hosts
5 According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.
6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.
8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.
9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
10 In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,
11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:
16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
Verse 3: The glory of the first house (that of Solomon) remembered by some (now very old) – but now it appears as nothing. Therefore faith must be exercised for the rebuilding. Hebrews 11: 1 ‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’
God says ‘BE STRONG & WORK’ (chapter 2, verse 4) exactly as He says to us here & now. He is talking to the team of: political head (Zerubbabel), spiritual head (Joshua), working in unity with the remnant.
Haggai chapter 2: Haggai prophesies: to encourage. In verses 4 & 5, he says ‘…for I am with you… my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.’
Note the ‘double reference’ prophecy in verse 6, ‘I will shake the heavens & the earth, & the sea, & the dry land;’
‘I will shake all nations, & the desire of all nations shall come: & I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.’ This refers to the gospel being preached to all nations (every creature), which is really the deep-down desire of all nations – then the end shall come.
God is in charge of the finances & supply for rebuilding His house. ‘The silver is mine, & the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.’
Verse 9 contains these 2 great promises of God:
(1) The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former – this we believe by faith;
(2) In this place will I give peace. These promises have to be seen in the light of the end-time scenario, when men shall say, ‘Peace, peace’ where there is no peace.
Chapter 2, verse 11-19:
Haggai prophesies again. Verse 19 is very significant here, especially the question: ‘Is the seed still in the barn?’ The seed is the Word – we can’t have a harvest till the seed is planted. The seed is still in the barn, waiting to go out – stopped from going out, through lack (of people & finances).
But the Lord says here, ‘from this day will I bless you.’
Chapter 2, verses 20-23:
Haggai prophesies again, a second time about the shaking (verses 21-22) & about how the Lord will destroy the kingdoms & devices of the enemy.
See also the book of Zechariah, the contemporary of Haggai – especially the famous Chapter 4.
Zechariah 4 KJV
And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep.
2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?
5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
8 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you.
10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
“The richness of My provision shall exceed all your wildest imaginations, saith the Lord. The glory of the latter house shall mightily exceed the former – not in man’s ways, but in the hearts of the believers.
“The glorious gospel shall be given through the whole earth – then every eye shall see Me & look upon Him who ye pierced. The whole earth shall see the salvation of the Lord & be raised, some to destruction, some to everlasting life.”
End of 1: 21/05/15
2: Shalom Intercession Meeting: 22/05/15
Prophetic word (just before today’s meeting):
“Yea, thou art staunchly defending thy charge to you against the enemy. The vanguard & the rear have been under great attack. Hordes have been amassing, looking for a gap in your armour, longing to find a weak chink – the ‘weakest link’ as you call it. Every old scar, every fear, pride & prejudice is a chink. Lack of trust, betrayal, seeming pitfalls in thy perception – all of these are weaknesses in thy armour.
“TRUST in the Lord with all thine heart, & lean not unto thine own understanding. In ALL thy ways acknowledge Him, & He shall direct thy paths” [Proverbs 3: 5-6]
This is the same as New Testament equivalent, ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God, & His righteousness…’ which is part of the Business Plan (see prophecy of 21/05/15).
“Unblock the flow.”
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
This is the OPEN CONFESSION MOVEMENT – Stage mentioned in Business Plan.
Note the mention of Elijah in James 5, who had the word of authority to call down the drought etc.
Rejoice in the Lord always – hymn ‘He Hideth My Soul in the Cleft of the Rock.’
Focus on the Character of God – His protection – all His promises are yea & amen.
Hymn relating to Malachi re ‘All his jewels, precious jewels, his loved & his own. Like the stars of the morning, the bright sky adorning, they will shine in their beauty, bright gems for his crown.’ His beauty surpassing all.
He wants us to love & trust Him more – revealing His nature & character, which we should show forth through us (as empty vessels).
TRUSTING HIM FOR EVERYTHING.
Isaiah 40:1-11; Isaiah 45; Psalm 121; Psalm 24 ‘Ye gates…’
Isaiah 40: 11 – the compassion of the Lord.
‘He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, & carry them in his bosom, & shall gently lead those that are with young.’
This is key to the growth of the ministry – see also ‘Little children, love one another’ [II John 5]. GOD IS LOVE.
I John 4: 16-21
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
This is connected with Jesus’ teaching on the 2 greatest commandments: love God, love our neighbour. The uniqueness of Jesus is shown here, as the only one who showed total by dying for us.
I John 3:16
‘Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life fot us; & we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren’
Matthew 11: 28-30
[similar to Isaiah 40:11]
‘Come unto me, all ye that labour & are heavy laden, & I will give you rest.
‘Take my yoke upon you, & learn of me; for I am meek & lowly in heart: & ye shall find rest unto your souls.
‘For my yoke is easy, & my burden is light.’
The 3 Elijahs:
Elijah the prophet, John the Baptist, & the end-time Elijah (the remnant Church). See Malachi 4: 5-6
‘Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great & dreadful day of the Lord:
‘And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, & the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come & smite the earth with a curse.’
Malachi 3: 1-3
‘Behold, I will send my messenger, & he shall prepare the way before me: & the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
‘But who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? For he is like a refiner’s fire, & like fullers’ soap:
‘And he shall sit as a refiner & purifier of silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in rightrousness.
Read Malachi chapters 3-4.
Malachi 4:2 is God’s word for India (given on flight from Colombo to Trichy, July 2004).
‘But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;’
This scripture is also linked with the bronze serpent on the pole – Jesus to be lifted up – the Healer. See John 3: 14
‘And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:’
Satan has far more victories than he should have where secrecy is involved. Secrets attract demonic activity, giving the devil a foothold he should not have. We three intercessors each witnessed & agreed to this in the Spirit – ‘where 2 or 3 are agreed on anything, it shall be done.’
We recognised 3 cases where this had happened & not been addressed, with potentially disastrous results – e.g. Sheila Standish.
There must be complete openness & trust, so that we can all be of one heart & one mind. This was what brought about growth of numbers of converts & also income in the Early Church.
Acts 2: 41-47; Acts 4: 31-32.
Ananias & Sapphira were secretive.
The reason God struck some people dead, according to one preacher, was because on these occasions God was starting a new work – e.g. Nadab & Abihu, sons of Aaron; the Ark brought back by David to its rightful place; new Church in Book of Acts.
Similarly, the Bible College of Wales Continuing is a new work - & the time is short.
‘Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, & given them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.’
Hosea 6: 3; Job 29:23
Connected with Haggai 2:9. The rain is the Holy Spirit, being poured out.
Praise the Lord!
To close the ‘gap in the hedge’ or in our armour, three things needed:
Full covenant among all
Showing forth the full character of the Lord in us, especially love, mercy & compassion
Open confession – no secrets.
3: Shalom Intercession Group, 27/05/15
Background Briefing (DG): Norman Grubb’s Final Intercession:
1. Scripture references:
I Thessalonians 5: 22-24
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
Jude verse 24-25
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
2. The Intercession:
“That the body on earth which Jesus comes back to, will be blameless.”
Stages in the ministry:
Remnant Body as Him
This is pure Methodism; Wesleyan Holiness.
NB Greek philosophical influence.
“It is not My will that any man should teach you these things, but that My Spirit, which revealeth all truths, should lead you deeper into understanding.”
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
[‘He is high and lifted up. & his train fills the temple.’]
Zechariah 14: 20-21
20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, Holiness Unto The Lord; and the pots in the Lord's house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.
Exodus 28: 36-38
36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
37 And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.
38 And it shall be upon Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be acceptable before the Lord.*
See also Leviticus 9, where Aaron & his sons are sanctified by the shedding of blood, which is then put on them, & on all the items they will use in priestly service.
*This refers to the Day of Atonement. Jesus is our atonement by His once & for all sacrifice.
Satan’s counterfeits of true holiness:
To the gold plate on Aaron’s forehead, in top of his mitre – the third eye (Hindu belief – hence caste mark in middle of forehead) – this is your ‘spiritual’ eye – New Age counterfeit
The religious spirit – of self-righteousness (e.g. scribes & Pharisees)
And false holiness – ‘holier than thou’ attitude.
Stages of Holiness: Exodus 28:41
41 And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
ANOINT THEM: with oil = the Holy Ghost
CONSECRATE: this means set apart for Him
SANCTIFY: means made holy.
These are the 3 stages of holiness, after each one has been chosen for the royal priesthood, i.e. born again.
Who has to be holy?
I Peter 1:16
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
I Peter 2:9
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Revelation 1: 5-6
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Answer: all believers.
We are a royal priesthood under the New Covenant (Testament), therefore all need to be the same level of consecration as Aaron & family. We are now sprinkled by the blood of Jesus the Lamb – see Hebrews, especially chapters 9-10.
All believers are saints, i.e. holy, separated, ‘sanctified’ [Ephesians 1:1].
The dead religious spirit will deny this by all kinds of ruses, all of which separate believers from each other, instead of separating themselves unto God, e.g.
The Hindu caste system
Roman Catholic system of ‘false separation’, including: altar rails, crucifixes which deny the finished work of Christ by retaining Him on the cross; separate elite priesthood – priests v. laity; the Pope, who is called ‘Holy Father,’ separate ‘saints’ who are canonised by the hierarchy, often after death. Individual ‘saints’ are prayed to as well! Note: in the New Testament, saints are always referred to in the plural.
In Islam & many Christian groupings, including the Brethren, Apostolics, many churches of the Reformed Protestant tradition, men & women are separated – not just in Church pews, but much more importantly, in ministry, where often women’s ministry is not accepted as valid.
Separating the ‘then’ & ‘now’ of time by means of the ‘new thing’ fallacy etc. This is especially prevalent in the Emerging Church, who make use of ever-changing ‘new Bible versions.’
Separating the New Testament from the Old Testament, instead of it being one Covenant, the complete Word of God, with the ‘scarlet thread’ of the blood running through it.
The ultimate aim of Satan is separation: to separate the true from the false Church, & then destroy the true remnant.
A Study of John chapter 17: Jesus’ last intercession of His earthly ministry.
17 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Notes from John 17:
Verses 11-13: “Keep” means to keep holy, sanctified – see also Psalm121
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
The whole chapter, John 17, is about the unity of the Head & the Body of Christ, as one in Him. Without this union, & the love of Christ that runs through it, the world cannot believe – see verses 21-23.
Hypocrisy (lack of reality – the religious spirit) is a stumbling-block to people believing – see Matthew 7.
Saints are sanctified, holy ones.
NB three things:
Essential steps to holiness:
John 15, verses 1- 2
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
“Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.”
We have to be purged, i.e. die to self through testing, suffering, brokenness, cut right back to nothing.
Note the symbols of unity (union) of Christ with His Body, the true Church:
The seven-branched candlestick (Menorah) & oil
Aaron’s rod, which budded & was in the Holy of Holies
Jesus’ seamless garment
Maynard James’ definition of the fully sanctified:
“Tears in your eyes, fire in your belly = the heart of Christ.”
Examine yourself (not other people!).
In John 17, LOVE & JOY are mentioned – see also Galatians 5, on the fruit of the Spirit: & in verse 13, “My joy” & verse 26, “His love” i.e. the Father’s love.
Verse 17, “Sanctify…” – see also Hebrews 2:11 “For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren.”
John 15 verse 16 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” Jesus is interceding here for lasting fruit.
Intercession took place at this point for lasting fruit – to prevent Satan from stealing the fruit.
John 15, verse 22: These are those with the religious spirit, who have a cloak for their sin, i.e. ‘fronts.’
John 15 verse 27: “And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.”
This is Jesus’ prophecy re His disciples – see also I John 1: “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;”
See also John 16:2 – He has more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
Prayed for lasting fruit & restoration of what the enemy has stolen: Steve Maltz conferences, Wayne Weaver & Harlan, Indiana.
Joel 2: 23-25
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
Pray for the restoration of this REVELATION (holiness) to the Body of Christ.
Malachi 4, verses 5-6:
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Insight given into verse 6: e.g. Maynard James to this generation. See also Jesus’ words “Elias must first come, and restore all things.”
Matthew 17, verses 10-12, along with Malachi.
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
Note: There are three “Elijahs” altogether
John the Baptist
The end-time remnant Church
See Isaiah 60 on this.
Revelation on the Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist: see Matthew 3:15-16
At His Baptism, when Jesus came up out of the water, like Genesis chapter 1, you have Jesus the Word (made flesh here) + The Spirit hovering over the face of the waters, + God (the voice of God).
So, Genesis 1=John 1=Matthew 3, verses 15-16.
Genesis 1: 1-3
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
John 1: 1-5
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Matthew 3: 15-16
15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
In Isaiah 60, darkness becomes light.
This revelation of Scripture which has been received here is the meat of the Word!
Luke 24: 44-45
44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
To be end-time handmaidens; wise virgins.
“Receive from Me, that your joy may be full.”
4: Report from Shalom Intercession Meeting
5 Bryn Rhyg, 05/06/15
Wonderful presence of the Lord, from when we started
Psalm 65 ‘Praise waits for Thee in Zion, Lord’ etc.
Vision of lush, green, watered garden, with beautiful tulip-like flowers, growing from the river of God
Praise & worship, e.g. ‘I love you, Lord, & I lift my voice…’
Impartation of strength etc. through the Holy Ghost, strengthening us for the task ahead. LG felt (rare for me!) strong tingling in hands. When that happens, hand must be laid on person God intends – MD on this occasion – & words given from the Lord to say to her. This was to do with ‘mounting up with wings as eagles’ etc.
Same happened with MD being led to impart to LG.
Scripture & song ‘Righteousness, peace, joy in the Holy Ghost…that’s the kingdom of God.’
It was now the right time in the Spirit to read the prophecy of 04/06/15 about our intercession group & the first 3 areas to pray into.
The Elton John concert & spirits associated with it – took authority
Prayer & intercession re Item (1) of the prophecy read earlier, of 04/06/15: outer family. Rhema words of Scripture were read out: Colossians chapters 1-3; I Corinthians chapters 1-2. Also ‘our battle is not against flesh & blood, but…casting down high imaginations & every high thing that exalts itself…’
Prayed against ideologies (see prophecy above), especially EVOLUTION – against God the Creator.
Named all outer families in the prayer
Revelation then came! We had missed out Audrey Hamilton, mother-ln-law of Jill. LG had vision of lobster type creature with snapping claws (pincers), nipping & causing hurts. MD then mentioned how, as a new believer, she had prayer for Audrey (at an FGBMFI dinner). Immediate severe spiritual attack followed on her head, for which she asked for help (prayer?) from the visiting speaker. Spirits of legalism, religion, bitterness then identified by LG & MD. Note that AH is the source of doubts & concerns raised about DG & the ministry, leading on to gossip, negative back-biting, e.g. re ‘ordination’ to MD’s son & daughter; more recently re MD move to Sri Lanka, mentioned by Chris Madeley.
So AH at the root of the ill-feeling & mistrust in that outer family?
Word from the Lord through David P Griffiths, 15/06/15
“The Urgency of the Hour: Prophecy for Part 3 Intercession”
“A kingdom divided cannot stand. The kingdom of Satan the god of this world, is massively divided. There are world-wide tensions, with a world-wide war continuously going on, with country after country spying on each other, on one hand being business partners, & with the other hand sending spies to look at what each other is doing. This denotes a complete lack of trust between each other.
“In contrast, with your community work, you have shown complete openness & transparency, & there is a freedom in this; a freedom that brings fear to those who hide things & operate behind the scenes.
“Thy television programmes are open & free. For what thou hast done, is given the opportunity for Me to speak, whereas other so-called Christian channels talk about Me. They do not give Me the opportunity to be Me. The “I” still liveth. But thy channel has become My channel, & it must expand. For I have called this channel into being to reach every creature with the gospel; & thou has not been afraid to permit the conviction of the Spirit.
“But I have to tell you now, the hour is nigh. In a divided world, the armies of the North are gathering; & I have called thee to gather those from the South to reach those up above, in continent after continent & nation after nation. Note, there are exceptions; for I have pockets all over the world, of My remnant Church.
“Now, there is an urgency about this, which must be explained, for the hour is nigh. Now, thou has spoken out My Word, in My name; words I gave through the prophet Isaiah in chapters 59, 60 & 61 – these are key chapters for this time. For they describe the context of when these prophecies were written, Isaiah looking forward to the day of the Lord, when the glory should come upon the saints of God. You live in that day. For behold! I am coming soon.
“Now, those working on this business plan must grasp this. There is a work ethic attached to this plan; & whilst there will be times of rest, there will be times of hard work too. And I require determined workers, who are committed to this cause of reaching every creature with the gospel.
“There are signs of the times all around, as Lindsay has been portraying, through My name, in ‘The Midnight Cry.’ Thou has seen over the last 24 hours, news announcements of the army of the North, breaking the codes of the Western world in relation to military matters, the Western world being out of the covering of God through its slaughter of innocents in wombs. Governments think they can run their military without God; but why then does the British army, for example, have chaplains? Why is God at the beginning of the National Anthem? Who saves the Queen: God or man, the Queen representing the nation? So, who saves the nation – God or man? So isn’t it time to give God the pre-eminent position?
“This is why this business plan, which is now to go on-line, & presented to key people around the world. These people are key, & I have named those intercessory operations to come forth from the South of nations & continents, with pockets elsewhere.
“But tell them, the hour is nigh. There is an urgency here, for one is called to bring about the conditions for hell-deserving sinners to be saved.
“And the word to My Church here: My end-time rescue operation is on, to bring about the conditions for hell-deserving sinners to be saved.
“You see, in trade delegations they shake the hands of nations’ leaders, to do business one with another. Yet they do not trust each other. That kingdom cannot stand. But My remnant Church in its transparency is all-powerful. It does not have such divisions, for it is one in Me, the massage being that the hour is nigh, the use of that little word ‘repent’ being crucial here, to withdraw from Satan’s divided kingdom to be members of My united body, members of My body, flesh & bones, without spot nor wrinkle.
“This is My end-time remnant, rising up to claim back that which is rightfully its own, so as to fulfil this end-time calling of God.
“Now, this is the intercession: The urgency of the hour, My end-time rescue plan to come through those who have suffered, those who have forsaken their all, those of humility & holiness. Grasp that which the Spirit doth say; for the hour is at hand. The armies are gathering. Bring forth My revival; for thou will speak out the word of the Lord for nations to repent before Me.
“For it is only I to whom men may come & be saved. Look around, & see the prophecies being fulfilled. Be aware: that hour draweth nigh.
“This, indeed, is thy midnight cry.”
Word from the Lord through David P Griffiths, 16/06/15
“The Scoffers & the Legalists are having their Day
(feeding into Part 3 of the Business Plan – Intercession)”
“Just as in Noah’s day, they scoff; & as they scoffed in Noah’s day, their scoffing turned to screams of ‘help!’ For the floods came, & Noah & his family rode on high; high above the drowning scoffers, who had now turned to screamers of despair.
“Such as it will be today; but the floods of yesterday will become the flames of eternal despair for the scoffers of the ministries of God.
“Likewise, they gave no heed to the Lord in Sodom & Gomorrah, the pillars of salt still being there as a testimony of the cries of despair from the immoral, & abusers of God’s Word.
“The salt of yesterday will become the flames of tomorrow; of the eternal destiny of those unrepentant from sin.
“Likewise, the legalists present their righteousness through legislation. Yet it is with the heart we believe unto righteousness; & the righteousness of My body is in Me; what I achieved on the cross, the agape. Unless that is at the heart of a society, the keeping of man-made regulation will never appease the angry God, who although desires all men to come unto Him, will send all legalists to a fiery future, unless they repent before God, & have agape before the letter.
“So, this is the day of the scoffers & the legalists, & in addition, the immoral. But thou art standing fast on the word that I have given thee; & I have given thee this 7-year plan, to rescue the scoffers, the legalists & the immoral. But if they continue to scoff, laugh, & place you under law, then their future will be a fiery one, whilst you walk on high.
“And in amongst all of this, the nations of the West have their Cold War to contend with, a war that has never gone away. Armies of the West have been reduced; yet the armies that are coming towards Western countries have increased all over the world. Technology has increased, & cyber wars take place every single day, continuously. A whole nation can be wiped out by failure of its computer systems.
“So the war has got more intense than it ever was. In the sense of technology, the Third World War is already here. Yet those who can save Western nations, that is, the apostles & prophets of God, are laughed at by the scoffers, suppressed by the legalists, scorned at by the immoral. Yet they hold the keys for the freedom of the nation, but are attacked constantly by their own people, who see them as a danger, rather than a life-line.
“So in all this is a life-line; but will they stop scoffing? Will they continue their immorality? Will they continue to place you under letter of the law? Or will they realise that it is you who have the words of life, & life in abundance, whilst it is they who are leading many to the fiery slopes of hell?
“So, the intercession is here. Can the scoffers become praisers? Can the immoral become regenerated; & can the legalists replace the letter with the agape? For it is the Spirit that giveth life, not the letter.
“So, there is the massive build-up at this time around Megiddo. Watch out for Russia & China; North Korea too. Remember My word about the Souths to Norths, & the development of international intercession, mostly from South to North, with some exceptions? This is My intercession at this time. This is My business plan. I see thou art working on this day after day, for at the heart of this plan are 2 factors: The visions of Rees Howells & Charles Fuller, that every creature be reached; & the final intercession of Grubb, the Galatians 2:20 reality, of how the ‘I’ becomes the ‘Me,’ Christ our all.”
Word from the Lord through David P Griffiths, 18/06/15
[For Part 3 Business Plan: Intercession Team 1, & other Teams as Led]
“The Totalitarianism of Humanism v. the Freedom of the Spirit, that is the British Constitutional Acts”
“Elizabeth the First & her Settlement, the Great Charter of the nation, the very Oath of the British monarch, the Compact of America, were all about giving freedom of choice, an allowance that has gone on for centuries, when these covenantal positions were kept.
“With the eating of the tree of knowledge of good & evil, a new philosophy has come into Western countries, called totalitarianism. So now, the state decides what people are to believe. So children are indoctrinated with the philosophies of humanism. With humanism comes immorality, & state controls over the affairs of people. Hence, evolution is now taught as a fact, rather than a theory brought about by a deranged mind that was incapable of discerning how the worlds were formed.
“All kinds of ridiculous conclusions have come out of this theory of evolution, with humanists now saying when the worlds were formed, & how they were formed.
“Yet they have still not discovered huge parts of the universe, & have come nowhere near to understanding God.
“Yet the new generations being brought up with totalitarianism, are not taught to seek God over these issues, but simply to accept what God is saying. They produce fossils to determine the age of the earth, giving no regard to the Scriptures, which give clear indication of how a fossil can be formed.
“Another area is the state’s methods of presenting morality, diversity being the buzz-word, rather than family values. So the children are forced to consider their gender, & sexual preferences, from a young age, with the brain-washing of a totalitarian state. So the freedom has gone, & the brain-washing has come in; & if you oppose this brain-washing, you are seen as a threat to the state. Yet it is you who are upholding the Constitution, not them.
“Brain-washing is all part of the humanistic agenda, an agenda that places mental capacity above the Spirit. But mental capacity is limited, getting nowhere near the truth, their cases of law only dealing with narrow aspects of the reality, which is why the British Constitutional Acts place the Spirit first, meaning the wider aspect under God has to be considered under every case of law. For that is the demand of the British Constitution.
“But totalitarianism has all groups of people operating in human reason, which comes nowhere near the truth. I am the way, the truth & the life. Human reason comes nowhere near. By Me were all things created. I am the source of life, which is why constitutionally in Great Britain, thy children have to be brought up by My Word, which declared the truth about creation, rather than the brain-washing of Darwinian philosophy, that has its origins, not in species, but in the very being of a totalitarian devil that seeks to control the mind of a child with philosophies brought about by reason, rather than the revelation of the Spirit.
“My intercession therefore is to break this Darwinian control, so that there can be once more a hunger & thirsting for the Word of God, which is why I have called thee to re-instate the Bible College of Wales, & colleges all over the world, that move by revelation of the Spirit, rather than human reason, which is totalitarianism in the field of science, & higher textual criticism in the field of theology, coming nowhere near the truth of the situation, for this can only come by revelation of the Spirit, from where comes the liberty, humanism & the age of reason bringing about the control of the new generations into such narrow areas that individuals can no longer operate with a widened mind.
“It is in this area, breaking the totalitarian spirit, that I call thee into intercession today.”
Shalom Intercession (1) with SDS, 08/06/15
Those present: Margaret Dransfield, Lindsay Griffiths, Sheila Standish
MD told SDS what was happening re situation with Power of Attorney (property & finances), including the apparent breaking into her bank account by person or persons unknown, & the stopping of DG (Rev David Griffiths) from looking after her affairs - how he had had a lot of attack because of this (SDS’s family). MD then asked SDS: was she still wanting DG to look after her affairs? SDS replied ‘Yes.’
All the above was taken in & understood by SDS.
(2) SDS was then given her own Bible (she had another one before that). MD asked her to read Psalm 23 aloud herself, which she did.
(3) SDS was clearly very happy to have her own Bible - a precious gift. She hugged it, & read & ‘devoured’ the Word.
(4) Further Update re Intercession Group:
LG read prophecy of 04/06/15, concerning the Shalom Intercession Group & the initial 3 areas to pray into: (i) family (ii) houses (iii) SDS.
We all read Romans 8 (a couple of verses) together.
(5) Praise & Worship:
Sang a few favourite choruses.
(6) LG set up her lap-top & played highlights from the previous day’s ‘On Fire Meeting’ television programme of ECCTV, made at Brynleigh Studios, Rhos on Sea, including:
Prophecy with tongues – read Isaiah 55 to go with it, & a song.
Preaching by DG from I Thessalonians 5, especially verse 23-24, ‘And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; & I pray God your whole spirit & soul & body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.’ Three parts to this: (i) holiness, (ii) humility, (iii) signs & wonders following – this quote from John Osteen
SDS watched this intently, & was clearly really encouraged & built up in the Spirit by the Word preached, encouragement to prophesy. She was very keen for us to visit again; very bright & alert, even at the beginning of our meeting; & spiritually ‘spot-on.’
(7) Clothes & toiletries were also delivered to SDS, & we took tea / coffee together on the kind offer of the nursing home staff.
Shalom Intercessory Prayer Part 5, 10/06/15 at Old Colwyn
This venue & date was God’s perfect timing, to deal with & gloriously overcome a major attack of the enemy during the previous night.
A religious spirit had manifested when MB received a midnight telephone call from a very angry Sri Lankan lady, well known to the family. This lady has one child, a son of almost 18 years old. Unfortunately, her husband died over a year ago, so this is a grief-stricken family, with the son in particular deeply affected by the loss of his father.
For most of his school career, apart from the first years of primary, the son has been home-schooled by his mother on the ACE syllabus. However, he does not appear to have any certificates (GCSE, A level or equivalent) & at the time of writing this report, he is not engaged in any education, training or employment.
He is on good terms with MB’s younger son. They both share an interest in computers, & communicate regularly via Skype.
The subject of this midnight telephone call to MB was that the mother was very angry, accusing MB’s son ruining her son’s life, & forcing his views of evolution on him when he is ‘just a child.’
It was discerned in the Spirit that this was an enemy ambush.
Scripture: Luke 10 – The Good Samaritan
“25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.”
Jesus is our Good Samaritan. “He poured in the oil & the wine – the kind that restoreth the soul – He found me bleeding & dying on the Jericho road, & He poured in the oil & the wine.” His love & compassion heals – all are accepted in the Beloved. Love & acceptance heal the wounds caused by a religious spirit, & Satanic ambush. The religious spirit constantly came against Jesus. It was the ‘religious’ priest & Levite that passed by on the other side – did not help the wounded traveller.
A healing work was done in this meeting, not only for MB but also the two men in the scenario above – both needing love & acceptance; one being made the scapegoat by the religious spirit, which always blames others & never examines itself.
Scriptures: Isaiah 12; I John 4.
Hymn chorus: “Thou hast conquered, thou hast conquered, sin & Satan & the grave, sin & Satan & the grave.”
Jeremiah 9: 23-24:
“23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.”
I Corinthians 2:
Concerning the wisdom of this world, etc.
2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
Psalm 24 (metrical): “Ye Gates”
This was sung with authority – strongholds to come down re houses & house sales. ‘Lack’ was the attack of the enemy. Take no nonsense from the enemy! He’s on the run!
Word about the houses:
Purify – dedicate to the Lord
Holiness to the Lord [DG to get the signs put up on Number 9]
MB discerned spiritual barbed wire around the houses.
To MB re the religious spirit & how Jesus suffered –
see Matthew 11:19
19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
‘As He is, so are we on the earth.’
