Heb 11:32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the prophets,
Heb 11:33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions,
Heb 11:34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies.
AWAKE, AWAKE OH SLEEPERS
“Awake, awake oh sleepers,
It is time for you my people to go deeper,
I need to be the object of your desire,
Come and let me baptize you afresh with Holy Spirit fire,
Much darkness indeed encompasses your land,
But I have called you as my people to make a stand,
I have said I shall direct your paths,
So take heed of what my Word says.
I want my glory to shine through you,
For this reason I placed my Spirit in you,
The light shines and darkness is dispelled,
I need you though, to be continually Spirit filled.
I want to take you to new heights of intimacy with me,
There is so much more I want you to see,
You can have real knowledge of the Divine,
Heart knowledge as your hearts start to beat with mine.
Maturity in me is not a learned degree,
My children don’t you know it comes from relationship with me,
Rise up now, come and walk with me,
Come closer and I will lead you into intimacy.
Too many of my people are asleep in this hour,
And satan has a desire to completely devour,
But I am the Lord of the angel armies,
Walk my way and you will come to no harm.
The battle belongs to me and I am the Lord,
I want you my people to gather in one accord,
Seek my face and return to me your first love,
My people I want to shower on you, blessings from above.
Mount up now on wings of eagles,
For you are priests of mine who I have made regal,
I have said in my name demons will flee,
It is time for you my people to see the captives set free.
I have strategically placed you for my purpose in this hour,
You may be small in number but remember I am a strong and mighty tower,
Look to me gain your strength from me,
I need you to seek only me.
Put all self seeking aside,
Such behaviour can only cause a divide,
Is it me you serve, will you let me build the church?
You need to give me access to all areas in your lives I can touch.
I want to bring wholeness to your families,
Surrender yourselves, totally over to me,
I am looking for Christians, who are radicals,
It was for you I died and from sin to set you free.
Will you take up your cross and follow me?
Ask yourselves today do you really, really love me?
When you give yourselves over to me completely,
There are no limits to the harvest you will see.
You will no longer labour in vain,
For I in you will totally reign
The glory of the latter house will be greater than the former,
Reflect on my words for they are worthy of your ponder.
Remember I challenge and chastise those I love,
It is time for you to walk as a people of power,
For such a time as this I sent my Spirit in the form of a dove,
Walk in my Spirit in this hour.
I am promising to give you victory,
The days of defeat will be history,
For now you have found a much better way,
Being led by my Spirit each and every day.”
As the Lord gave this to me 17th April 2011
