A Word About Christchurch

Not an Accident But Parallel Revolution Taking Place in the Heavenlies

In the recent days, all eyes have been focused on the many disturbing events unfolding before us around the world. Like me, I believe many Christians are also asking our Heavenly Father for the spiritual significance of these events. Please allow me to share the impressions that I received regarding these matters.

Ephesians 1:9-10: He (God and Father) made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment – to bring all things in Heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-3, 7, 14: There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heavens... a time to plant and a time to uproot... a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak... a time for war and a time for peace. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere Him.

God is preparing the way for a new move of His Spirit. To accomplish this He has to uproot every authority (whether a leader or an organization) that stands in the way of His plans. The political upheavals taking place in the Middle East and the destruction of the Cathedral which was a landmark in Christchurch, New Zealand – are symbols and a warning to us that God means business and that our God reigns. He is in full control of all things that are happening around us right now.

Modern Day Ezra, King Cyrus and King Darius will Arise

When God was ready to rebuild His temple in Jerusalem after the long years of exile of the Israelites, He stirred up the heart of Ezra and the people and even the heathen kings at that time so that God's plans to rebuild His temple in Jerusalem would start. So in the same way for the past years, the Lord had been calling His people to rebuild their individual temples (our hearts ). He's called us to draw near to Him, to humble ourselves before Him, to seek His will for us and to follow where He will lead us.

Many of His children have hearkened to that call and have determined in their hearts to follow the Lord and do what He tells them. In the process of doing so, many gave up prosperous jobs, businesses, ministries, or redirected their future plans to follow God's call, even if it meant going on a wilderness journey with God. These are the modern day Ezras whom God has chosen to be a part of His new move.

Right now, you may seem like a nobody with nothing to show for yourself. But you never gave up on that vision which God has planted in your heart. Like Ezra, you have cried, mourned and wrestled with the Lord in the past years, waiting and watching for the time that God would come to your aid.

Fear not for that time is near. When the time is right, you will find the Lord opening the way for you. He is at present preparing the structure and when all is set, you will find modern day King Cyrus and King Darius sent by the Lord to provide for you and to help fulfill the visions He has given you.

Face of the Coming Anointing

The face of the coming move of God will be different from what we have heard or experienced before. This new move will be a MARKETPLACE ANOINTING. It means that it will not be limited to certain places or type of settings or a particular person or organization. But rather, for every person or group who continually seek God for His plans and are diligently following God will suddenly find themselves immersed in that anointing. There will be no boundaries to this anointing, nor will there be any specific grouping. It will go beyond the churches of God. It will cover many areas of life. God intends to reclaim His Kingdom, totally.

People from many sectors have been chosen to become the modern day Nehemiahs. Nehemiah led in the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. God has chosen people to rebuild the many facets of His Kingdom. Even today there are many modern day Nehemiahs already called by God. They have received instructions and visions from the Lord, teaching them how to improve on their current works so that God's heart will be carried out.

Justice, righteousness, love for the poor, reaching out to the widows, arts to influence our young people, godly governance and many other facets of God's plans have already been planted in the hearts of His people. All they need to do is to see these executed in FULL MEASURE SO THAT THE WORLD WILL TAKE NOTICE AND GOD'S NAME WILL BE REVERED AGAIN.

The season has started, all the works that you have sown for God's Kingdom through the years will soon be made known to men. Take heart, for as you have sown with tears, you will soon reap with joy (Psalm 126:5).

Watch and wait, for the battle indeed belongs to God. Be faithful with what you can do and He will take care of the rest.

Pray this prayer with me:

Dearest Father, oh we cry out to You for our nations. They lie in ruin in many areas. Forgive us for our complacency. Stir up our hearts once again, so that we can feel Your heart's cry. Open our eyes so that we will see what You've seen. Give us Your wisdom, courage and boldness so that we will once more stir our nations toward You.

Help us, Holy Spirit. We need Your anointing and we need Your infilling. Shake us, shape us, and send us where we are needed. We long for You, O Holy Spirit. Come and burn our hearts once more with Holy Fire. Jesus, dear Jesus, help us to be partakers of all the intercession. You have done on our behalf. Forgive us for our unfaithfulness and draw us near to You again. We long to do Your will. Help us as we pray. Amen
