Heidi Baker | 16th November 2014 | Prophetic Word for the UK

Don’t leave us like this. Don’t leave England like this. Don’t leave the UK like this. Take us deeper God. Lord let there be healing on the streets. I just feel like there’s revival that God has promised in this nation. It’s another wave of revival that He’s promised. I feel like it’s going to come as we go. It’s going to come as we go…it’s going to come as we go, says the Lord. This revival of radical love is going to come as we go. It’s each one of us just taking a hold of the love of God, taking a hold of the heart of God, taking a hold of the mercy of God. Fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and the finisher. As we go, one by one by one by one, there’s going to be a lighting up in the hearts of men and women in this city…in this nation. This move of God is different than you’ve ever seen before says the Lord. It’s different than you’ve ever seen before says the Lord. No one is going to point to one evangelist. No one’s going to point to one mighty preacher. No one’s going to point to one mighty event, but there’s going to be this emersion of the Father’s love, this emersion of Holy Spirit, this emersion, this infilling of God within the hearts of individuals and with the hearts of the body of Christ.

There is going to be a movement of unity within the UK that’s going to shake the world says the Lord. I hear the prophetic word of the Lord. It’s going to flow through the universities, the colleges and universities. It’s going to flow through the denominations and the non-denominations. There’s going to be a move of unity in the body of Christ. You are going to fill Wembley Stadium. You’re going to fill stadiums with worshippers of the living God. There is going to be this holy affection before the Lord. They’re not even going to know who is speaking in the stadium. They’re not going to even know the name of the preachers, because they are coming fixing their eyes on Jesus. It’s going to shake the nation says the Lord. There’s going to be a unity even between Scotland and Ireland and the UK. He’s going to shake shake shake shake. There’s going to be a shaking that’s going to bring a unity says the Lord.

There’s going to be something that the people of other faiths are going to see in this nation as believers come together in radical love. You are going to be a part of the history, the part of the history in this nation, says the Lord. There’s going to be another historical move of God. I see a shaking of radical love. I see people in the body of Christ, and your going out, I see a vision of it. As you go out, I know you are sons and daughters, but you are going out like ants. You are going out like ants, like ants, like little ants. You’re going out like little ants and you are digging digging digging digging like a little ant. Like little ants your digging and there’s something specific happening as you start just lining up in this unity There’s going to be unity beyond anything the UK has ever seen. I feel like you are going to become radical lovers of God that is going to cross all denominations, all the barriers. I feel like church history is going to be made in this place again and you are going to be a part of the history, because instead of burning people at the stake, there is going to be radical love manifested through the body of Christ. And it’s like there is something that is going to be happening in the body of Christ in the UK. I hear the Lord so clearly, it’s this radical movement of unity where there is going to be so much of Holy Spirit’s presence in the individual believer that they’re literally going to cross different streams and they are going to move together in this huge river of radical love that is going to flow over the banks of the UK. It’s going to flow over the banks. It’s going to be like this hot bed and out of the UK it’s going to become a mighty move of the Spirit. It’s going to touch even unto the continents says the Lord.

There’s going to be a reawakening, a reawakening of love, a reawakening of unity, a reawakening of the Spirit. It’s like the other faiths and the other religions are going to take notice when the Christians come together in radical love across streams. They don’t care and they won’t care what they are called. It’s interesting what I hear, there is going to be diversity in the unity. There is going to be diversity in the unity, uniqueness in the unity. People are going to come together uniquely different and yet flowing together in unity. It’s not like you are going to come together with a fake unity where all your doctrines are the same or all your beliefs are the same, but you are going to come together for the prize. You are going to come together for the prize. He says I will give you souls. I will give you souls. I will give you souls…souls, souls, souls, souls. There is going to be another great awakening coming out of this place. I see a great awakening that is touching the universities. There is going to be a fire and glory and love on the universities. There’s going to be a move between denominations that’s going to blow your mind says the Lord. This is from God’s heart and it is a passion on Daddy’s heart that is hard to understand but there has been this longing in the heart of daddy God. A longing in the heart of the Father for this move that He longs for and that He has destined this place for, that He has destined UK for. He has destined it in His spirit. And I see it. Hebrews 3 says, therefore, holy brothers fix your eyes on Jesus. Holy brothers who share in the heavenly calling. Holy brothers, holy sisters who share in the heavenly calling. Our calling is to be radical lovers of God. With all our mind, our soul, our heart, and our spirit and to love our neighbor has ourself. These are the greatest commandments.

I walked passed a massive cathedral yesterday and I said “oh are people in there worshipping?” And they said, “no it’s a tourist attraction.” I said “God, what are you about to do in this nation?” He said, “As people come together in unity, there is going to be this radical unity, where people are individuals yet they are moving in this power of love that is going to shake the UK.” I saw it in the spirit. And these buildings are going to be full and there is not going to be a name of a preacher on the invitation. It’s going to be about fixing your eyes on Jesus and people are going to come for Jesus to fix their eyes on Jesus. The Lord will raise up different people, but everybody’s affections are on Him. It’s a powerful thing. He is building the house. He is building the house. Heavenly brothers heavenly sisters, you share in this heavenly calling. You are called to shine. You are not called to sit away in the corner. We are going to shine because we are full of Holy Spirit and we love each other.

MoreVember

A Prophetic Word for November

Digital image

We’ve been praying and fasting this weekend for the Lord to speak to us about our direction for this month.

The word given was that this month of November would be a month which we should refer to as MoreVember. It would be a time of double portion; a More for all the times we have said No to the world as we try to live in obedience to our callings and lives as Christians.

This would also be a month where an abundance of miraculous healings would take place in our homes and communities; words of knowledge and boldness to speak out what the Lord was nudging us to say would become more prevalent. For many of us, it would be a gut feeling but the Holy Spirit is whispering to us us to draw closer for the boldness to speak out what the Lord wants others to say.

He is a God of Love and Restoration.

Some verses to ponder:

Isaiah 61:7
Instead of shame and dishonor, you shall have a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy.

Psalm 41:3
The Lord sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness.

Jeremiah 7:23
but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you.

Psalm 128:1
Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.

Rest in Me

716ac0fcfe34326f005f9a373f52d04a

‘Come to me if you’re tired, weary, burned out and I will give you rest. You’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.’ Matthew 11 28-29 Message Translation.

Christians often talk about the Lord telling them to pray and rest in Him. What does this mean? Does it mean we must take to our beds and sofas and kick back for the rest of our lives, giving up jobs and lives and staying at home?

As appealing as this may sound, on the contrary, if we are praying in all circumstances, we have the confident hope that the Lord is actually telling us, ‘Pray and I will do the rest.’

This sounds so simple. He is certainly stronger than we are, has our best interests at heart, can see the future before it happens and has designed each of us for a specific purpose (this is why comparison is futile and steals our happiness.) The Lord’s grace is enough for us; His power is made perfect in our weakness.

We are not to try to understand, underestimate or know how He does things. The grace of the Lord is stronger than all our faults and failures. His love for each of us is deeper and greater than our hearts could ever fathom. We must humble ourselves, therefore, before the Almighty God, for truly He alone is the One who gives and takes away.

Do not be afraid to go boldly forth into the new day. Just as none of us would go into the laundry basket and take out yesterday’s clothes to wear, so it is with the mercies of Christ which begin fresh each day. We must not take the garbage of yesterday into the freshness of today. Why be afraid when we are given a spirit of love, courage and a strong mind?

As St. Paul writes in 2 Timothy, when the going gets tough, take it on the chin, just as Jesus did, running the race of faith, love and peace. Let’s not be argumentative but be gentle, listeners, keeping cool and keeping on, keeping on.

Asking the Lord to help us and sort out our stresses and messes starts a positive cycle of strength and reassurance, relief from pressure and real progress. This is most certainly difficult to start with but will become easier as we rest in Him, spending more time in prayer and thankfulness for all He has done and is doing for us. As our “Attitude of Gratitude” develops, we will see how our days become less stressful and more productive. The rest will come and our bodies will become physically and mentally recharged and stronger.

“You pray, I’ll do the rest,’ says the Lord. The rest of our hearts, souls, minds and lives is found as we pray, trust, believe and obey that He is with us always. The rest will come in the Lord’s time but, in the meantime, He will equip us through the Holy Spirit to cope with life and its grenades. We can confidently go in to today to work and enjoy the freedom He has given us through the price paid through His death and resurrection.

Lord, in your mercy, help us pray and let you do the rest. Help us to remember that you are a God who loves us and has our best interests at heart. Help us Lord, graciously help us go into today with happiness and gratitude for all you have done and are doing for us and through us for the good of each other. Help us develop attitudes of sincere gratitude. Enable us, Lord, to set aside stillness in each day to listen to you. In this stillness may your Holy Spirit help us remember times when you have answered our prayers and enabled us to to more than we could physically or mentally have achieved in our own strength. May we openly talk with others about these times to encourage, refresh and build one another up. Bless us, good Lord. Thank you Lord for we can’t do this without you.  Amen.

Word from Baghdad: Take Risks!

Below is a copy and paste from a recent  Facebook update from my friend Canon Andrew White a.k.a. The Vicar of Baghdad, encouraging us all to take risks.

CanonAndrewWhite

Take Risks

So often I have said to people don’t “take care, take Risks”. When I recently received the William Wilberforce award over all the posters and the programmes were the words “Take Risks”. People often think those words came from me they did not they came from my great mentor in life the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Donald Coggan. It was he who married Caroline and I and even baptised Josiah.

I will never forget when he first said it to me we were walking in Mayfair in London. We had just been to a reception of the Council of Christians and Jews. Walking down the road he took my arm and held it very tight and said to me. “You are a young Curate I want to give you just two words of advice for your ministry Take Risks”. I have never forgotten those words and never will. A few weeks after that great meeting I was visiting Pope John Paul II. I was with the Young leadership section of the International Council of Christians and Jews. I went for a walk with the pope through the Vatican and he turned to me and said you are at the early stage of your ministry you will go far if you always take risks. “Yes your Holiness I said I promise I always will”. This is indeed what I have done throughout my entire ministry.

For me risk taking has affected every aspect of my life and I know for a fact that when I have not taken risks I have limited the work of the Holy Spirit. Now in retrospect I know when I have done this and have asked God’s forgiveness for these mistakes I made and I know that my Lord and my God has forgiven me.
So how have I taken these risks of the kingdom:

1, Risks in Asking Much from God

2, Risks in working for Reconciliation

3, Risks in dealing with bad people

4, Risks in bringing enemies together

5, Risks in giving everything

Dear Pope Francis…

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/the-pope/10839223/Italian-women-appeal-to-Pope-Francis-to-end-priests-celibacy-vow.html

If Pope Francis pays heed to the heartfelt cries of not only these women but to the silent prayers of Christian women all over the world who are single not through choice, then the floodgates of marriages made in heaven will truly open.

Think of it like this: churches all around the world are outnumbered by holy, sexy godly women.

Meanwhile, the Vatican is full of holy, sexy, godly men. I know. I was there last summer and was so distracted by them all, I had to eat my gelato with sunglasses permanently fixed to my face even at nighttime.

Why should His Holiness, Pope Francis, not take these godly sexy bulls by the horns and release them to charge forward with the power of the Holy Spirit behind them to find the women of their dreams and fulfill God’s wish for us all to live in love with one another?

As far as I am aware, St Paul wrote in I Corinthians 7, marriage is not such a bad thing after all. Jesus healed St Peter’s mother in law. Adam and Eve kick started the whole game of love in the Garden of Eden. It’s time to rethink a principal based on a 1,000 year tradition which is not based on Biblical realities and move forward.

Pray and stay alert. The Winds of Change are blowing.

Is Isaiah 35 prophecy actually happening now?

Is the Bible really proving itself to be true these days? Right before our eyes?  The proof quite possibly is in the pics taken today from my car. This area of increasing green shrubbery is roughly 100 kms2 and stretches from the Persian/Arabia Gulf shore towards the Sahara desert. Read Isaiah 35 and see if the pictures match the word of the Lord uttered through the prophet Isaiah and make up your own mind. Tomorrow, I will post pics of the pools of water randomly springing up out of nowhere.

Good stories for Good Friday.

tumblr_mcvs50XE161r6dxlpo1_500So often, people get caught up in the gore and nastiness of Good Friday. Now, I’m not saying that as Christians we should ignore what the Lord went through for us, but let us remember that had Good Friday not happened, there would have been no reason to celebrate Easter Sunday. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday saw the Lord abandoned and betrayed by those closest to Him, tortured, mocked, mutilated and crucified to a cross between two criminals. The world cried out in various manifestations of despair when Jesus breathed His last and His spirit left His body. So many times, we cry out to God in despair. We are mentally and physically tortured both in our silent screams and in our visible circumstances. But the hope is that Jesus Christ, the Man, the Son of God made flesh, GETS IT! There is NOTHING that we go through on earth that He cannot empathise with. All along, the hope is there as we progress towards Easter Sunday. We kneel by the cross, looking at the Lord’s face, scarred and mutilated. And here He is looking deep into our eyes.

‘Hold on,’ He whispers.

The message of Good Friday is Hang On! Hope! Good things are coming. Believe!

I wish you all a peaceful Good Friday. God bless you.

Back-to-back pregnancies put UAE Womens’ health at risk

Back-to-back pregnancies put UAE women’s health at risk

This article is not based on Western styled living nor is it one woman telling another how many children she should have.  As the headline states, it is directed towards UAE women, of whom roughly only 16.5% are local Emirati/Bedouin. The rest are classified as expats and come from other GCC countries, India, Pakistan, SE Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas as well as Australasia etc. When you take these statistics in to consideration, you can see how the number of average children is  2.37 but I have yet to see a Bedouin family with so few children. The average is, I’d say from experience, 5,6, or 7 per woman with the birthing process starting as early as 15 or 16 years of age. In such cases, what I’ve see is many of these families, too, have at least one child with a physical and / or emotional and mental disability which, as yet, perhaps because of the area’s remoteness has yet to be defined using any western special needs requirements and education plans used in the UK.

It’s also a world apart from UK/USA styled Jeremy Kyle lifestyle choices as it is directed at Emirati/Arab women living in remote areas in the Abu Dhabi region which stretches all the way across hundreds of miles of sand towards Saudi and beyond and in which the Bedouin people are inhabitants. Jeremy Vile demonstrates how the West have taken things like free medical care, welfare, education for all, sanitation and personal health for granted and created an entitlement state worlds apart from where I live. Just last week I had a conversation with a local woman who didn’t realize that chewing gum was not a substitute for brushing your teeth and that too much sugar was what was making everyone’s teeth turn black.

Here at school on the Saudi border, many of our colleagues were married off at 14 and/or 15 years of age and had babies each year until their husband married wife #2, #3 and #4. Some were subsequently divorced when no child was produced within a year of marriage. Some went through a marriage ceremony only to be told on their wedding night that their husbands wanted a divorce and the marriage was never consummated.

Many of the women, as a result of having poor understanding about pre and post natal care are suffering from physical disablements like pelvic and hip, problems. You have a case of children bringing up children. Our western colleagues in the senior schools talk of 14 year old girls being excited about leaving school within the next year to get married so they can have a mobile phone. Understanding towards western women who choose to not have children is limited as girls are brought up with the idea that they are here only to procreate. Situations like our Egyptian colleague who fled her home town to come and work out in the sticks as her first born child was a girl and was subsequently beaten up and thrown down stairs by her husband highlight the difference in understanding between our western idea of relationships, marriage, home and family and the cultural norm out here. (He has yet to grant her a divorce as he says he wants to punish her for the rest of her life for not giving him a son but has since married wife #2 who has produced the son within the year).

When women are not educated on the importance taking a daily contraceptive pill or of pre and post natal care and those vital trips to hospitals because the hospital is a 2 or 3 days’ drive away then it’s really not a question either of whether the problem comes back to the physiological strength of a woman to birth a child. And when the women can’t read the instructions on the medical packets, then you’re pretty much filling up a bucket with holes with water.

The article also states that family interference, health insurance and work commitments hinder medical check ups. We see men stay at home or disappear off to the shiny, city lights of hedonistic Dubai for days at a time whilst the women stay at home to work and bring up the children with a Filipino / Indonesian/ Bangladeshi maid. The lack of understanding as to how medical appointments must be paid for (not like UK where it is all provided gratis on the NHS) and families who live in large compounds (think our back yard with the sheds all housing 1 man per family with 2,3,4 wives and many, many children all bringing each other up) all contribute.

I’ve seen first hand how women sit in hospital waiting rooms with 2 or 3 children hanging on her whilst the young mother (and they are young!) stares blanky ahead, not interacting whilst the children fight and tustle for her attention (and it can’t be from not lack of sleep as there are many maids and many adults around in the extended family looking out for the little people). In our schools you will, unfortunately, witness first hand children who can’t use their fine and gross motor skills to feed them selves or speak articulately as there is no one sitting one on one with them teaching them how to do these vital developmental things in their homes.

Living out here and working in this remotest of remote areas has taught  appreciation of freedom and education as a woman that we take for granted. Thank God for the final line in this article where the suggestion has been put forward to build a women and children’s hospital. There needs to be not just one W&C hospital based a million miles away in Dubai but a section in each of the newly built grandiose hospitals in local tows for women and children’s medical care.  This is not criticism, it’s daily observation.  All views my own.

The Palindromic Valentine’s Day of 14-02-2014

Today marks a rather special date in this year’s calendar: Valentine’s Day. But this is no ordinary Valentine’s Day. This is a Palindromic Valentine’s Day (almost…)

Yes, it may sound as catastrophic as having our noses rubbed in the smugness of those coupled up beings surrounding us, but this date has a depth to it this year which overrides the somewhat superficiality of the bling which normally accompanies the annual doling out of flowers, chocolates, dinners a deux and tacky, shiny cards.

A palindrome is like the word ABBA or AHA. It is the same written forwards as backwards (but you already knew that). If we apply that to the all concepts of LURVE, to include romance, friendships, families, relationships, we can see that love knows no beginning, knows no end, is the same yesterday as it is today and comes around once in a lifetime. Love is a unique experience between two people. The relationships we have with each friend, brother, sister, colleague is unique. We don’t behave in the same way with each person. It’s a natural human instinct to behave in a different way with each person, allowing certain features of our complex personalities to really show. Why do we do this?

Fear is the opposing factor to love. They fight a battle within each one of us each day. Fear will say that we can’t truly be ourselves with people; that we must only put our best selves forward to allow them us to gain popularity and respect. But it is in destroying the lie of fear that our true selves can really shine through. Our vulnerabilities are our strength. They show we are human. They encourage others around us to open up and share experiences and truth about human survival in the face of exposure when we take a gulp and say how we really felt when something happened to us.

St Valentine was an early Christian martyr, beaten and stoned to death before being beheaded and buried on 14th February 269 AD. The reason? He helped persecuted Christians and married Christian couples!

Love is a risk. And it’s a choice. In putting our faith in love, we are putting our faith in opening ourselves up to change. Love will change us. It will break us. It will build us up and tear us down. It will remove things from us that hold us back. It will empower us to move forwards. It will still the storm raging within. It will give us hope for a peaceful future. It will change perception of fellow humans, workmates, family members, world circumstances, and the concept of our time on earth and our very existence. Love will never end. It will make us lay down our lives for others.  It knows no beginning and knows no endWe can’t explain it. We don’t know how it got here or how we deserve it or if it will even be reciprocated when we allow ourselves to express it towards others. But what we do know about love is that it covers a multitude of sins. It allows us to forgive as we have been forgiven and to forge ahead with peace and joy in our hearts as a result. We won’t understand what has just gone on, but we will have the courage and the strength to live to fight another day.
