Will you Go?
(A prophetic call and poem by Steven Irvine)
God's temple has become rich, or as they call it, the church today has become a playground for pleasing men.
Big T.V. Companies that line their pockets, say “don't rock the boat, just preach what they want to hear.”
But God says different. He says, everyone of them has gone back. They have become
altogether filthy, they have become vain. Therefore mend your ways.
His true church is not built with stone or silver or fine clothes or fancy cars.
It's not a points system where you just sit there and rack up points and say,
I have done this for God.... no, God's not interested in what we have done for the church,
the real stuff is going on outside the doors of salvation.
The real God is waiting outside your doors, wanting to come in, but we have shut him down.
We have become a McDonald's drive through, a bless-me church, “A quick fix God, and I'll be fine,” …. and would you like a strawberry milkshake with that, with a cherry on the top?
What have we become? We cannot make this up!
A microwave God, ready to serve us, 24-7.
We have become so blind, so self-serving, so pleasing to our own demands,
That God cannot be heard over them.
So sad, don't you think?
But meanwhile, standing outside the doors of salvation waits those who are hungry,
and the homeless.
And there are those who are shot for being a Christian, hung, beaten,
Churches burned down in countries, just for having a Bible.
All this we don't understand … how does this fit with you?
Why would a loving God let them die for believing in Him?
But they did not give up, but just stood up for their beliefs.
Meanwhile, the Church in the west plays at being church –
But they are far from being the real deal.
So now the real call of God goes out and calls people,
“What will you do for me?”
It may cost you. But still, will you go for me?
You will cry a billion tears.
Will you hold dying children? But
still will you go?
Will you go if they held a gun to your head,
As they tear children from their beds?
Will you go if I told you that you will be hungry and go grey?
Will you go and pray for a little one, far away?
Will you go for me if I told you that you would hold the hand
of a dying man, who held a gun to your head?
And when you prayed for him, he was filled with tears.
And still God calls out – will you go for me?
Will you hold dying people in your hands,
Whilst they bomb a church, and you don't understand,
You say, “Why Lord? is this your plan?
I'm about to die holding children's hands.”
But God calls out, still will you go for me?
If they hung you on a tree, beat you,
Still, will you go for me?
There are no easy answers to appease,
But God calls out to you and me -
Will you go for me?
THE ROAR OF THE LION (21.5.17) R Grigg
I saw The Lion (of Judah) standing tall on a hill top.
He said: we should not be afraid when we see wars and stirrings within the nations and war against his people. He is coming as the Lion of Judah to deal with his enemies. He is coming, stand, watch and pray. We will see will see every promise to the Jews, to this Church and personal promises come to pass. Every word he has spoken will come to pass.
He is coming first to the east. We will hear his roar in the East (Amos 1:2), his roar in the south, is roar in the west, his roar in the north. We will hear the roar of the Lion but this is not yet the end. We will hear a trumpet sound and a roar that goes across the earth, like the sound of thunder and lightening before He returns as King (Rev 5:5, See Matt 24: 27, 31). He is coming and He is moving forwards, even now.
He will release millions of angels: they will be released to the earth during the times of battle: they are sent to warn us, protect us, guide us and care for us. During all of this, we need to just be still and know that He is God; enter into the place of peace and rest and he will protect our hearts and minds.
He asked this question: Why be scared when you know your inheritance? The Garden of Eden will be yours. Heaven on earth will be yours. You are receiving an eternal inheritance.
He is calling us: rise up warriors, rise up kings – do not be faint-hearted. Rise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen on you (See Zech 9:9-10 ff).
As I was praying and asking God for revelation about the church, I saw myself walking in the garden with Jesus and I saw several huge butterflies above us.
The Lord wanted me to see them but spoke to me more about the cocoon stage of the butterfly.
He told me that The Church is in a cocoon, sleeping – but whilst it is in the cocoon a transformation is taking place. There will be a huge awaking of the church like never before (like the butterfly awakening and emerging from the cocoon). When she awakens she will be so beautiful, swift in moving in power and free – flying in the Spirit. When she is released she will sweep millions into the Kingdom through God's power.
The church is in a cocoon – she needs to break free from every tradition, lie, constraint and restriction (both personal and within the Body of Christ) that ties her down. In the cocoon, she is being prepared and is learning and relearning the truth of who she is and the truth of who He is. She is learning who and what the Kingdom is. At the appointed time she will break free from her cocoon and fly. She will sweep millions into the Kingdom of God ready for my return.
The African church, the Asian church, the Western church will arise in glory and power, releasing my spirit all over the land.
Vision regarding the UK 24.3.17, R. Grigg
I had been praying for the UK and government etc and I asked the Lord to give me strategies in how to pray more effectively for the nation.
In a vision, I started to see myself walking down a pathway. I was dressed in a white robe with jewels embroidered onto the robe, gold around the edges and carried a gold staff. I walked up to a mansion-type building and knocked on the door to a Council. Angels opened the doors and I walked up to another door and knocked. The door opened. I was shown to a seat near the front to observe the proceedings. I was told not so speak unless asked to, only to observe – I also scribed.
I was in a of court-room chamber, where the Council (1) met. They were holding a meeting concerning the UK.
During the proceedings, Satan stood up and said he had plans for the UK, that he had rights and access because we had opened the doors for him.
Satan said he had plans to bring deeper darkness to this nation, so deep that we cannot get out or return to where we have previously been (2). He has plans to hem in the UK, surround us and pressurise us so that our nations conforms to others around us and looses our own identity.
He said he has plans to remove Child Benefit and other benefits from families – to bring families into further poverty (3).
He also said:
He has plans to make housing and house-buying more difficult, almost impossible – causing more homelessness and stress on families.
He has plans to ruin and bring down the Health Service so it is more chaos and disorder.
He has to bring further and deeper divide within the churches over issues of sexuality and morality.
He has plans to allow and encourage all religions and cults to operate more openly and freely with endorsements from the government – all except Christ followers (4)
He has plans to confuse and nullify the morals and ethics of the youth and children in our nation.
He has plans to bring higher levels of stress and strife, by raising up 'education' and 'business success' on the alter of life – making them into gods – bringing with it heavy loses on health, and family life.
Then the Council Leader (God) stood up and asked the church – what answer does The Church give?
The Church stood up (seemingly weak and silent) and said, “We will pray.”
The Council Leader (God) asked the Lord what answer he gives?
Then the Lord stood up in the Council and said:
I will stir up my people to pray and intercede, fast and repent. I will call them out from hiding and cause their light to shine.
I will put my compassion and strength in their hearts so they will rise up and heal those who are broken and hurt and they will be lights on a hill (5).
I will raise up intercessors to stand on the wall and in the gaps to guard the nation (6), to close and open doors, to bind up and loose (7), to call for angelic help and to call for the army of God to rise up; and when they call on me, I will hear them and heal their land and their people (8). I will put my word in their mouth and they will speak out in truth and wisdom, faith, power and love, then they will decree the things I have spoken.
I will strengthen their armour and their sword (9); in the heat of the battle, they will not be burned; in the heat of the battle my angels will fight for and with them.
They will rise up and address their nation and when they call on me I will provide for their needs; they will see my grace and glory. Nothing shall defeat them because I am fighting for them (10).
Then I was asked to stand up and speak:
Ruth, what is your response?
My response was: I will do what the Holy Spirit leads me to do. I will pray and intercede. I will speak forth in truth and I will teach the nations.
This is where the vision ended - we however, are called to pray for our nation.

VISION of the Bride and Bridegroom in Heaven: August 2016
Paul had an open vision whilst on our mission trip in Kenya, 2016. It started out like this … we are his children... we are heirs to the throne of God.
Paul then saw two people, a man and woman (The King and Queen). They were dressed in long robes. The man had a gold robe and the lady a purple robe. They both wore gold crowns. They held a gold sceptre and an orb. The orb had a silver cross on it and in the middle of the cross was a purple stone. The man and woman were kneeling and in front of them were 2 chairs (thrones), padded in red and the arms were covered in thick gold. Then Paul saw the woman being crowned – she was going to her coronation.
Paul saw the man and woman kneeling before God. There were angels behind them, in the shape of a horse-shoe. Some were golden angels. There were angles all around – they all stood up and bowed down to the King and Queen. The angels raised their hands up to the throne and to Heaven.
Behind the thrones was a silver cross and written on the cross the centre, in gold letters was-
I am the King of Glory, and written down the cross was – This is the King of Glory.
The two people, the King and Queen turned around to see the angles encircling them, looking left and right and in front of them. The angles began to speak out:
“Lord of Lords, King of Kings,” “We welcome you Lord of Lords. You are the King of Glory. You are the Lord of Hosts.”
And God was above them, looking down saying, “I welcome you. I am the Prince of Peace.”
There was a break in the vision.... then Paul saw the angels to began to blow long golden trumpets – they played heavenly music – there was burst of heavenly sound and the trumpet was a call to all people – waking people up.
Then the Lord God said, “Raise up you King of Kings. Rise up Lord of Lords.”
The King and Queen came off their thrones and knelt before God, looking up to Him in the highest heaven with their hands raised up.
And God said, “I am calling you into the Heavenly Realms.”
To Paul, none of this
vision made sense because he has not had an open vision before this one- but it all makes perfect sense - vision is Biblical and what he saw was Christ and the Bride of Christ in the heavenly places and what will take place in Heaven.
The following day, gold specks appeared on Paul's body - on his face, ear and back.
THE WAVE (a harvest)
25th March, 2016
I saw a very large wave and tide coming into the shore. The Lord was spoke to me and said that there is a huge wave (tide, harvest) of people coming into the Kingdom and the church needs to be ready to handle this. They will be driven in. The harvest (wave, tide) of people will seem to come from nowhere, but they are the harvest of their ancestors and their prayers. We will reap where we have not sown. (See Jn 4:37-38).
Alongside this and after this, there will be a great persecution against the church - it will cause many to fall away and many will be martyred. The church will look as if it has been wiped out, off the face of the earth, but instead, it will be underground and on the run because of persecution. (Rev 6:9-11, Rev 13:5-7).
After all these things have taken place and much more that has already been prophesied, then the Lord will come again in glory to judge and rule with the saints.
CALLING THE NATIONS
8th February, 2016
I am calling all nations to me. I am calling a chosen people. I am calling ALL NATIONS to be joined to my heart and to eternal life and to their inheritance in me. You are a Chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a Holy Nation, belonging to God. Every nation will receive an inheritance according to their love for me, their faith, and their obedience; and every individual will be rewarded in the same way.
Love, faith, obedience – this is what I call you too – step into your inheritance by faith and obedience. As you step in, you will see growth all around you. As you nurture people and the growth all around you, it will become fruitful – then I will ask you to take another step forwards into new areas – take this step by faith and obedience and this will also grow and be fruitful and prosper. The Kingdom of Heaven is forcibly advancing and forcible men take hold of it.
As I was praying today, I sensed the Lord was saying, he is looking for intercessors, to stand in the gap, praying for governments, leaders, politicians and for our laws. He is looking for people who will be a 'VOICE' in the political realm: speaking His word of truth amongst the discord, disunity, disloyalty, distrust and disasters; not only a voice, but active participants in the political realm - standing up for truth and justice. You will be warriors of justice and mercy, carriers of light and salt to the earth.
I sensed the Lord was saying he is also looking for 'healers'; those who will bring healing, who will be bridges where there has been hurt in the world (and church) to bring healing to the nations. These healers will intercede and intercept, they will clean wounds and be peacemakers.
The Lord is actively looking for volunteers who will take a stand for him. Who will stand for him?
As I was praying today, I saw a long pregnancy and a woman about to give birth. Some people have been waiting for a long time for their promises to come to birth, their visions and dreams and things God has put on their hearts.
The process has been very long and arduous. The Lord is saying: the darkness is over, the light is coming, the birth is near. Don't give in now, keep pushing! Keep pushing through in prayer, the birth will come! Joy will come in the morning!
Some are birthing the promises of God in their lives; some are birthing new ministries, some are birthing changes and some new beginnings; some he will take up to the mountain top so they will have an overview of their lives so far and a preview of what is take place next.... the Lord is saying, hold on tight! the birth is about to take place! New things are coming!
I also saw an ultrasound - I saw two babies in the womb and 2 heartbeats - some are birthing twins! There will be 2 places of authority, influence, and input, with significant impact. I sensed the Lord was saying that both need to be nurtured so they grow strong and able to stand! Both have the same spiritual parents, yet they are distinct in that they have separate identities, qualities and strengths. They will need a lot of parenting - so strengthen yourselves for the task and journey ahead!

JIGSAW PIECES 17.7.09
After worship I sat and listened to Holy Spirit, and I saw and felt a whirlwind. The whirlwind surrounded me then took me up into it. The Lord was saying, come up here I have things I want to show you, I want you to see with my eyes. He said he is building his army and putting people into place and putting strategies into place.
He said to me that he is going to give me, and others pieces of jigsaws – he is going to send his angels and his Holy Spirit and they are going to show us strategies of the Lord; how He is moving and working among our nations and among the body of Christ in these latter days; we will understand the books of Revelation and Daniel as He unfolds his plans and purposes for our time.
He said to me, that he is raising a faceless, nameless army of mighty warriors; there will not be many Leaders, but there will be a vast army and we will all be mighty and effective.
He said to me that angels would come and visit us tell us things, show us pieces of the puzzle. Some will have angels visit, some will be taken up into heavenlies and shown things and some will have the Holy Spirit will speak directly to their hearts and He will reveal things to us. The Body in different nations will each receive pieces of the jigsaw puzzle; the puzzle will build a bigger picture and we will begin to see the bigger picture when all our pieces are put together over the nations.
The Holy Spirit also said, that when we receive a piece of the puzzle we need to be carefully listening for more. He will keep giving us more if we seek Him. If we do not, we may hold onto our one or two pieces he has shown us, but not see the bigger picture, then we can easily fall into deception and not move forwards. We need to see what the Father is doing and do what He is doing, move with the Holy Spirit.
He said that it is important for the prophets and apostles and pastors to link forces and to be unity with each other so that His plans and purposes can be released. He said that we are to watch for the false ones planted by the enemy; they may look and sound good, but in your hearts you will discern their spirits, you will discern deceit. He said we need to be alert and prayerfully watching.
The enemy’s activities will also be increasing, and this will give a very confusing message to the world. The world will be in chaos, so our vision and our voice needs to be very clear. They will know us by our fruit, our walk, not just by our words or actions, because the enemy is counterfeiting all we do.
He showed me some of the pieces of the puzzle: intercession and worship in unity with others; this is one of the key pieces of the puzzle, and this is key in our times, key in hearing the Holy Spirit and receiving revelation, key in being in touch with the Father’s heart. When we seek Him, intercede he hears us and heals our land. He showed me that angels will minister to us and with us when we intercede, they will join in our intercessions.
Another piece of the jigsaw, is unity. He will call and raise up apostles to bring unity among churches and to intercede and worship. When we do, God will give us strategies and revelation. He will show his prophets and apostles strategies, pieces of the jigsaw that will fit together.
The army has to be united to be effective. In unity the Holy Spirit’s presence is poured out, we will be empowered. Alongside unity is relationship and fellowship. We cannot build the body without it; it is necessary to support one another, to fellowship at a deeper level, deeper than the world.
Another piece of the puzzle is a simple lifestyle, but one that lives on the life-line, on the edge, where we will lay down our lives for Him and each other. Our lives need to be so radically different from the world’s, when we are different they will know who we are. We are also to live a lifestyle of simple, obedient faith, that is willing to do the ‘acts’ of Jesus: miracles and healings, and His works as He leads. Our lifestyle and words will expose the darkness. Our job is to expose the false and shine the true light.
My job, our job, is just to be at His feet, worshipping and interceding, as we do, we will receive guidance and revelation from Him.
LIKE MARY - 19.7.09
a picture/vision, I saw saints, intercessors, worshipping at Jesus
feet, washing his feet with tears and anointing them with the oil of
worship, as Mary once did. There were holes in his feet and blood.
They were weeping and washing away the dirt and blood.
The Spirit said to me: "Cry out for the sins of your nation, and for the lost, the dying and the broken. Call out and cry out for them, then I will heal your land. I ask you to come as Mary. Mary did not come with her own works, or her own self-righteousness. She came in a humble attitude, in a spirit of repentance. Her worship was pure and she poured out her heart and she came to the only one she could - the only one who would not reject her. Pour your intercessions and worship at my feet and let me cleanse and heal your land, the lost ones and the broken ones. Let me walk among you again, as I once walked, I will walk again. I will pour out my spirit, my oil - and your light will shine brighter in the darkness. In these days the darkness will press in all around you, but I want you to stand firm in me, and stand together, and endure to the end. He who endures to the end, shall be saved."
28 June 2009
After worship, the Holy Spirit was speaking to me about different chambers He takes me to in my prayer/relationship and intimacy with Him.
Yesterday, the Lord started to show me some of the
different chambers, like: love and intimacy, holiness, wisdom and
counsel, revelation, intercession, warfare and justice, power &
anointing, restoration. He said to me today, that each chamber is
like doors into rooms, but rooms without walls, without limits; they
are living, breathing, moving, unfolding, and in each chamber is the
presence, the life and breath of God, and each is unique and
beautiful, and each time I enter, it is different. What I see, hear,
receive will be different, but appropriate.
Before He actually started to speak to me about this again today, He took me to a chamber of intercession. He said to me to sing and prophecy over Africa, Kenya, and the places I was going (Kosele & Migori, also Nairobi). So I did. I sang over them and spoke over them.... releasing God's Spirit, His fire to fall on them, releasing the captives to hear and receive His Word, to be healed and delivered etc.
He started to talk to me about the chamber of restoration – about
peace, quite and restoration, where my sole is restored and healed to
the place He intended it to be. He talked about the river that
brings restoration, and him restoring the years that Satan has
stolen. He talked about restoring relationship with him and others
and causing a unity and harmony within our existence; and He talked
about his love that will entwine my heart, that will wrap around,
will cover and restore. He said to receive his restoring love, his
He also talked to me about the chamber of intimacy, and spoke about the kiss - he said the kiss is to greet with love, it is like a seal, a mark. It is like breathing in love. And he spoke about his embrace, and said that in his embrace, there is strength; his embrace imparts love and strength and courage and healing. And then He spoke about the fragrance of his touch - he said the fragrance is unique, different every time, but familiar; the fragrance will be the exact right mix of ingredients to pour over me. He said when he touches me he will pour it over me... And he spoke about his face. He said those who seek Him will find Him ... only those who are hungry and thirsty for Him will find Him, but not if I (we) seek after Him with the wrong motives or intensions. He said his face is shining on me, his eyes glow with love and delight; his face is looking at me and is transforming me, as I (we) look at him....
COMPASSION - June 2009, Ruth Grigg
“Compassion; have my heart of compassion. Compassion reaches out, gives out of oneself. Compassion lays itself down on the alter. Compassion says there is no place you will not go. Compassion loves the leaper and the outcast. Compassion is all embracing. Compassion goes beyond yourself into another realm; the realm of my supernatural love, which is non-exhausting, never ending. Can you have that heart of compassion? This is what the world looks for and needs. It needs the heart of a Father who loves and protects and guides and gives and gives without expecting return. This is how the world knows you are different – not by what you say or do, but by the measure of your love and your willingness to be broken and to reach out to touch the unlovely and unloved.
Will you be my hands that reach out and touch them? to hold them, to love them, to pull them out of darkness? Will you be my feet that will walk with them in their pain and loneliness? Will you walk the way I walked? Will your love be a fragrance to the dying and the lost? Will your words be healing and life? Will your eyes see? Do they see? Do they see with my eyes? Do you see people the way I see people? I look with eyes of compassion and my heart longs, yearns to be one with those who are lost and seeking me. Let this love be in you that was in Christ Jesus. You are my body, my hands, eyes, ears, feet, mouth; let this love be in you; let love me your mark.”
MY CHURCH 1.8.09 Ruth Grigg
I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it! (Matt 16:18)
It is my church, my people. I am calling: a bride, not beggars; sons not slaves; soldiers not captives; prayer warriors not worriers; worshippers not soul-seekers or flesh seekers; soldiers of my Word, not the wisdom of man; David - giant slayers, not fearful trembling men; seekers of my heart, my ways, my kingdom, not the ways of this world.
Let me build my church IN you, and my Kingdom in you and through you into the world. Go out into the world and make disciples, baptising them in the name of the Son.* Preach the Word and signs will follow you. I will build my Kingdom around you as I build it in you and through you.
PROPHECIES FOR THE NATIONS - 19.7.09 Ruth Grigg
On Sunday at church during the worship time, I saw an angel who took me up to fly with him above the nations. He blew fire down on Asia (the fire of the Holy Spirit) and said ‘rain’ was coming to Africa and the Winds of the Holy Spirit was going to blow across America (and Europe).
The vision started and finished quickly, as we stopped worship and had to listen to the speaker. I know though, that this was just a quick flash of something more he wanted to show me, so later in the day I went back into prayer and asked the Holy spirit to show me the rest. This is what he showed me and said:
He showed me rain and floods in places. The rain clouds moves, stops and starts over different areas of Africa. Sometimes the rain is like light showers, sometimes heavy. This rain is sent from the Lord. He said, “I will water the land where they receive me. I will not go to places that don’t receive me, only those who call out and ask. I will water the land that is dry and parched when they cry out to me. The cloud is coming, the rain is ready to pour out across the nations of Africa.
“The cloud and rain will follow my servants and prophets and I will pour out many signs and wonders: where their feet treat, so will I. There will be a thundering and lightening from heaven – Africa will know I have spoken. The lightening will show My glory. I will pour out My blessing, a mighty deluge, mighty heavy rains. The clouds will lift and follow My servants and will fall on all My servants who call on Me.
I saw the angel blowing down fire over Asia. He said; “The fire of the Holy Spirit will burn! It will burn idols, it will burn the false to ashes and all that will remain will be My Word and My truth. I will raise up prophets to speak My word to this generation and release My might power among My people in Asia. My servants will encounter great darkness and deceit (in this nation) and persecution will come; but I have made a way. I have made a path for my people and they shall walk in the light. They shall be my light in the world. Where they go, the fire will fall! My holy fire. I am holy and I will burn. I will burn holiness into their hearts and I will burn in the souls of the lost. They will seek me and find me and be drawn deeper into the fire of my holiness.
My Fire will spread – it will spread from heart to heart, place to place, nation to nation. It is a fire that cannot be put out, because I blow on it and I spread it, no man can stop it. My fire is coming to Asia, be ready!”
I have a passion for India, for the people do not know me and I come to the poor and humble. When they call me, I will come. I will show myself to the nation again. They will see signs and wonders and know I am God, the one true God. I will pour my Spirit on the land. Come before me and seek me. I will hear you and heal you. You were not my people, but I will make you mine. You are precious to me, a priceless jewel. I died for you and I redeem you. I call you back and I enfold you. I call you to come into my Kingdom and be children of the most High King.
Please see: Isaiah 55:5, Isaiah 53:4-6, and Isaiah 54:5-7
A wind is blowing across the land. This is my holy wind. Do not be afraid of its strength and power, do not run and hide, but let it envelope you and take you along the path I lay out. Let this wind bend you, break you, let this wind remould your thinking, let this wind challenge you, let this wind empower you and send you out.
I call you as a nation to be sent out. Go out to the nations and take my Spirit. Spread the wind of the My Spirit. Let it come to you and upon you and sent it forth!
Let my Spirit show you new ways. Let my Spirit reveal to you my hearts desire and let not the old hold you back. The old has past, behold I am dong a new thing with this nation. You will link to other nations and the wind will blow over you and through you to others. Do not despise the little things, the small or the weak. The small will become mighty. The small and the mighty will link into one unit and become mighter. Your spiritual links will be health and strength to those in living in these times of trouble. Strengthen yourself in me, oh mighty nation and strengthen the small and the weak. For you are what I make you. You exists in me and because of me. I gave you live and breath. Let your strength be in me alone, not yourself, but me. I am the Lord, there is none other.”
“I am raising worshippers and intercessors in this land. I am raising leaders and I will release a spirit of joy, and deliverance over this land. A shout of praise will rise up, for they worship me in all their heart. They worship me in spirit and truth and I delight in them. I release a spirit of prophecy over this land. They shall prophecy and bring forth my word to the nations. I release refreshing springs, coming up from the earth, watering the land.”
“Blow the shofer, hear me oh Israel. Israel, oh Israel, I release a spirit of repentance over you. Repent and turn your heart to me and I will turn to you. I will not forget my people or my covenant with you. You are my chosen people and my heart breaks for you and waits for you to return to me. I will open the eyes of the blind and reveal who I am. I am who I am and I will reveal this to you. You will no longer search and walk in darkness for my light is coming and is shining over you. Seek me and you shall find me. Hear me Oh Israel. I am calling you.”
Britain has turned away from me and has let in many idols and false religions. I lament for the nations. But what should I do? Shall I come in my judgment and wipe out the nations? Or shall I come in my mercy? I choose to come in mercy so many will be saved.
I will pour out my rain and my fire on the church. My rain to soak you in my Spirit and presence, and my fire. I will ignite a fire in your hearts, that will burn and cause you to have vision again. And I ask you to take this fire out - take it out onto the streets and into the nations. You are my fire carriers and my torch bearers.
Fall on your knees and seek my face, there you will see my glory. Turn your hearts again to me, bow your knee to me only, then you will be strengthened. Strength comes within, it comes from my Spirit to your own - I will strengthen your heart, I will strengthen the weak; it is my might and power not yours. Turn back to me oh mighty nation, because your might comes from me! I have power to build or destroy, to pull up or to tear down; but I want you to tear down the enemy's strongholds and to build with me the Kingdom of God - for my reign will last forever. I am eternal. My Kingdom is eternal and my power and my glory is eternal. I will reign eternally among you and with you. Rise up sons and daughthers!

I was praying and listening to the Lord this morning, this is what I
Sowing & Reaping
I saw a picture of people reaping in a field. The people were reaping separately, in different parts of the field. The Lord said to me that we would reap more if we reaped together. He said that we need to take the seeds/fruit (people) that have been reaped, and nurture them, disciple them and then replant them so they can produce many more seeds. He said, we need to let go of them, not stifle them, but let them grow so they can produce their own seeds, so the cycle continues.
He showed me these scriptures, which confirmed this:
Matthew 13:23, 2 Cor 9:6-11, Gal 6:7-10
I saw a picture of people building individual homes (ministries, churches, kingdoms). The Lord said, we are building individual homes, without realizing that He asked us, called us to build one kingdom. We may have individual ‘rooms’ and places for ministry but the Lord builds one house. If we don’t realize this, the enemy can come in and set one kingdom (house) against another, causing division, weakness, and ineffective building of His Kingdom. The Lord said we should build together, build one kingdom. There are no separate kingdoms and there should be no competition between builders, but co-building and co-operation. He said, unless the Lord builds the house, its builders build in vain (Ps 127:1).
He also said to remember where we build our house. If we build it on the sand it will collapse; we need to remember to labour together, to dig foundations deep in prayer, worship, the Word, and fellowship; then this house will stand when others collapse around us, because it is built on the solid rock.
The Lord showed me these scriptures which confirmed this:
1 Cor 3:4-15, Mat 7: 24-27, Mat 12:25
THE BODY 7.6.09
had a picture of bones coming together to become a body. The body
became flesh and stood up to be a giant – warrior. Then I received
these prophetic words, which came in two parts.
Blow the trumpet - call my Body to come together. They must not be scattered, they must come together and work together. Can the leg cannot say it doesn't need the arm? Can the toe say it doesn't need the hand? I call every muscle, every bone, every fibre to work together and be my Body.
Blow the trumpet - I call my Body to awake! I call them to arise and be a warrior in the land, to take the nations, to proclaim and to bring salvation to the land.
Blow the trumpet - I call my Body to be my voice to the nations. Be my voice, speak my words, proclaim my Kingdom.
Blow the trumpet - I call my Body to prepare for my coming. Anoint yourself with oil - the oil of worship and holiness and readiness for my coming. Blow the trumpet. Church arise.
See Ezk 37:1-14
1 Cor 12:12-27
I am calling an army - an army of mighty warriors to invade the world and the kingdom of darkness and to plunge and pull back and pluck out people who are lost and perishing. I call you to proclaim. Proclaim my word! proclaim my Kingdom. Arise mighty warriors! I call you to go into the the darkness, into the depths of darkness, to bring people out into the light. You will find precious treasures in the darkness. How will they know the light unless you go? How will they see it, unless you take it? How will they hear unless you speak it and proclaim it?
call you to put on that armour. Put on the armour and fight with my
sword, for my sword is MIGHTY! Mighty in battle, mighty to conquer,
mighty to divide, mighty to save. I call you to be a people of
valour. Put on the breastplate of righteousness! Hold up the shield
of faith! Go the nations with the gospel of peace. Keep on the helmet
of salvation, always! Always proclaim salvation and truth. Wear and
proclaim the truth - it sets you free! Go to the corners of the
earth! Go and spread my word. Go to every nation, every city, every
town, every village. Go, and my strength and my power and might will
be with you!
My church shall arise and be seen in the world again as a mighty army, as a powerful body, not to be tampered with, not to be mocked and scorned as weak and ineffective, but mighty in God!
See 1 Thess 5:4-8
1 John 1:5-7
The Poor & Humble 25.7.09
Let the church hear what my Spirit is saying: I choose to pour my Spirit on the poor. I choose the poor to confound the rich, and the weak to confound the strong, the small to confound the big, and the unlearned to confound the learned and the child to confound the kings and rulers. I do this so you will know it is not yourself, but my Spirit. It is not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord. I will blow on whom I choose. I will blow on the lowly and the poor for they humble their hearts before me. He who humbles himself will know my presence, my power and my might. I come to reveal the Father, I come to reveal my judgment but also my grace, my holiness and my mercy. I am a gracious God and I hear all who call on me. I will deliver them, I will honour them, because they honour me and my name. My name is above all other names and it shall be lifted up above the nations. My son shall be glorified and my sons and daughters shall be revealed.
The Wind, Eagle and Dove Ruth Grigg 30.11.09
Can you hear the wind blowing? The wind blows where it wills and changes direction. The wind changes in strength – it can be so strong that it blows your house down… but I don’t come to destroy, but to build and empower you. But some things need to be moved out of your house, out of my house, because they block me moving into the places I need to go. Move out the old things you do not need or use any more; you cannot go back, I AM doing a new thing. You need to move old patterns of behaviour, working, and thinking out of your house, and you need to move fear out. Do not be afraid when my Spirit moves and when my Spirit unsettles you and unearths you, and seems to be doing something else that you are not used to doing. Follow the eagle and the dove. Where the eagles flies, go with it; the eagle will lead you out. I need you to see what I am doing and where I am going, and go with me. The dove will come also, bringing peace, my presence, healing and rest. Watch where the dove rests and go with Him. This is my leading. Keep watching where I am going and go with me.
John 3:8, Matt 3:16, Isa 40:31, Isa 43:18-19, John 6:19-20
Tsunami wave of the Holy Spirit - 1st August, 2009
the vision/prophecy the Holy Spirit said: there is a Tsunami wave of
the Holy Spirit coming to the church world wide - the glory of the
Lord is to be released. Run into it, not away from it. Don't be
afraid of it, because no man can push it back. Yes, it will knock
down your walls and it will sweep away all that went before it, and
it will spread over the land. Get into the waves, let it sweep over
you. It will come to every nation, every tribe and every tongue.
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
He will rule from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth.
THE BRIDE (2.6.09) Ruth Grigg
I had a vision of Jesus calling me to come and sit with him under this apple tree, in a beautiful garden. He said, "Come with me! I call you my lover. I call you my Bride. Come hold my hand. Prepare yourself. Wash in my waters." The vision changed and, I was diving and swimming in refreshing waters. He said, "wash in my waters of love. Cleanse yourself, bathe yourself. Prepare yourself as Esther did before her night with the king." The vision changed, and Jesus poured a fragrant oil over my head. He said, "I pour my oil over you. I pour my fragrance over you, "and then he said,"come clothe yourself." I was dressed in a wedding gown and walked up the isle to meet my groom, my husband, Jesus. Jesus had a beautiful fire in his eyes, eyes of firery love. He looked at me with love. We joined hands. He said, "this wedding was purchased by my blood. I have brought you." He put a ring on my finger, and He made a vow, a vow of eternal love, and I the Bride, made a vow of love to my groom. I bowed before my King and Lord in submission to my new husband, King Jesus. He kissed me on my forehead and said, "all this is to come." (ie yet to take place).
He said, "See I have prepared a wedding feast.... " In the vision I saw tables of glorious food, I saw singers and musicians and dancers. He said "bring your offering to me - your fruit of love." So I brought him and my offering. And then I saw heaven rejoicing. He said, "all heaven is rejoicing...I rejoice, my Bride is rejoicing, the angels and the earth is rejoicing at the union of My Bride with me.
In the vision I represent the Bride of Christ - but the Bride is you and me, the whole body of Christ. This vision of his love for his Bride and the unity in marriage is a picture/foretelling of the Wedding Feast of the Lamb with His Bride, the Church, which is yet to take place. He loves His Bride very much and the vision is telling us to prepare ourselves - to wash ourselves (to be holy, clean), to anoint ourselves with his oil and fragrance as Queen Esther did before her night with the king, (worship) so we may enter his presence and be his spotless Bride.
