VIAGEM AO BRASIL

Viagem ao Brasil.
No dia 25 de Dezembro 2009, Alistair e Eu tivemos a oportunidade de ir ao Brasil novamente. Estivemos la por 1 mes inteiro. A Viagem foi perfeita, tudo ocorreu bem no aeroporto e nao houve nenhume problema com o departmento de imigracao. Gloria a Deus!!
Tivemos a melhor ferias que poderiamos ter!!! Assim que chegamos ao Brasil, foi uma festa total. Foi uma emocao muito grande poder rever nossos amigos e familia novamente. Deus foi absolutamente maravilhoso conosco. Ele nos deu a oportunidade que tanto esperavamos, a oportunidade de estar com nossa familia e a oportunidade de trabalhar no Reino dele.
Tivemos em muitos encontros, muitas visitas, fizemos ministracoes da palavra, tivemos um tempo impactante com Deus.
Alistair e Eu ministramos em muito lugares como no Ministerio Terra Fertil, CCF Brazil, Ministerio Biblico da Graca in Guandu, Igreja Metodista Ortodoxa em Bangu…. Nos disfrutamos daquilo que temos aprendindo na ABC Bible college e foi bom ter compartilhado isso com outros irmaos.
Nossa visao e espalhar a palavra de Deus para o mundo, e trazer toda honra e gloria a Ele. O Reino de Deus nunca conhecera o fim, e a sua Gloria nao tera nenhum limite porque a majestade e o poder do Rei Jesus chegara nos lugares que no qual nos habitamos. Nos compartilhamos a boa, agradavel e perfeita vontade do nosso Senhor Jesus com nossos irmaos. Me lembro de quando fomos pregar numa igreja, e a luz acabou na hora da ministracao. Nos continuamos com a mensagem mesmo sem luz, e a congregacao foi impactada e movida pelo poder de Deus. E enquanto traduzia meu esposo, Deus comecou a falar ao meu coracao que as vezes nao precisamos de visao natural pra ver as mainfestacoes de Deus. Deus as vezes nos coloca num momento de cegueira pra que o proposito dele possam ser revelados. As vezes nos nao vemos a luz , mais nao significa que nao temos ouvidos pra ouvir. Deus e maravilhoso!!!!
Nos nos divertimos muito, aprendemos e crescemos espitualmente tambem. O Brazil e um lugar muitissimo especial pra mim e ele estara sempre no nossos coracoes. Mal chegamos a Africa do Sul ja queremos voltar de novo. rsrsrsr
Agradeco a Deus pela oportunidade de estar no meu país novamente!! Muito obrigado a todos os amigos, pastores, familias que nos receberam muito bem. Ja to com saudades!!!!
Amo todos voces e em breve os verei novamente.
Deus os abencoe! E Nos continuaremos a orar por voces daqui da Africa do Sul.
Abracos e beijos santo a todos

Hag 2:6-7
6 “For thus says the LORD of hosts: “Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.

We remain hopeful that the shakings that the earth is experiencing, both natural and spiritual will cause believers to gather as a corporate man; believers from different doctrinal and theological persuasions will lay aside “foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless” and come to the temple, not the one many believe to be rebuilt in Jerusalem, but the spiritual temple that is manifested as all believers would regularly gather to hear the Word of the Lord to the city.

This is the gathering that God promises to fill with His glory. However, we should be careful to note that believers should be drawn to the “Desire of All Nations”…the King over all kings, the Lord over all lords. We should not fall into error; the Lord of the temple is greater than the temple itself. We gather because we believe His glory will be manifested when we gather in one mind and one accord. Then we will experience His very Presence. That we will hear and receive His voice as spoken through His servants; where in this spiritually charged environment there would be signs and wonders.
The Lord Jesus must become the object of our desire to gather as one man.

Ps 42:1-4
As the deer pants for the water brooks,So pants my soul for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.When shall I come and appear before God? 3 My tears have been my food day and night,While they continually say to me,”Where is your God?”
4 When I remember these things,I pour out my soul within me.For I used to go with the multitude;I went with them to the house of God,With the voice of joy and praise,With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast.

David longed for God; his soul longed for God. Not for the rituals and the ordinances of the temple; but for fellowship with God Himself.
I know many people who miss the fellowship of the brethren when are away for a while. I know others who miss being in His Presence; something some believers miss when they are away from a particular place of worship.
His glory will be evident in His temple

Ps 137:3-6
3 For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song,
And those who plundered us requested mirth,
Saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
4 How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a foreign land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,Let my right hand forget its skill!
6 If I do not remember you,Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth—
If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy.

The captive Israelites were in mourning as the instruments that gave them so much of joy and comfort in the temple in Zion, now lay by their side; unable to lift the spirit of despair and hopelessness that was upon them.
The situation was that Babylon required a song for the purpose of mere pleasure; for mirth; for entertainment purposes; for laughter.
The integrity of the captive Israelites is demonstrated in this simple question:
“How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?”

The impartation received in the corporate temple in Zion was able to influence their behaviour on the banks of the rivers of Babylon. Even though they were in captivity the Word of the Lord they had learned in the temple was alive in them.

Sadly the Church at large, in a quest for “professionalism” in ministry, has betrayed it’s loyalty to the corporate temple in Zion; to the teachings of the fathers; the Church has mastered its performance to such an extent that it can render a sound that is acceptable to the masses whilst functioning from the operating manual of Babylon. The temple on the holy hill of Zion lays desolate and forgotten as the Church is wholly focussed on entertaining the multitude.
The Lord is mindful of our ways; of the abdication of the responsibilities of this present day priesthood. His eyes are upon the priesthood that is occupying His house.
Remember the prophetic word to Eli when the Lord declared:

1 Sam 2:35
35 I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who will do according to what is in my heart and mind. I will firmly establish his house, and he will minister before my anointed one always.

God is interested in nothing less than taking full ownership of His priesthood. One that simply communicate that which is in His heart and in His mind. Not only to articulate, but also to implement those things that are in His heart and in His mind.
Meditate on these words of the Psalmist:
Ps 119:52-54
52 I remember your ancient laws, O LORD, and I find comfort in them.
53 Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law.
54 Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge.

Let us emit a new sound. One that is fuelled by a passion for the Lord, His Word and His Kingdom.
Anything else is building on sand. It is my prayer that we will construct as wise master builders in 2010 using the architectural designs of the Master Builder, our Lord Jesus Christ.

FASTING AND PRAYER

We will commence our fasting and prayer on Monday 11 January 2010, meeting every morning and evening in the temple. There are many challenges that face the Church and some of these challenges simply will not go away.

Est 3:5-6
5 When Haman saw that Mordecai did not bow or pay him homage, Haman was filled with wrath. 6 But he disdained to lay hands on Mordecai alone, for they had told him of the people of Mordecai. Instead, Haman sought to destroy all the Jews who were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus–the people of Mordecai.

Est 3:8-13
8 Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus, “There is a certain people scattered and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of your kingdom; their laws are different from all other people’s, and they do not keep the king’s laws. Therefore it is not fitting for the king to let them remain. 9 If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.” 10 So the king took his signet ring from his hand and gave it to Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews. 11 And the king said to Haman, “The money and the people are given to you, to do with them as seems good to you.”
12 Then the king’s scribes were called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and a decree was written according to all that Haman commanded–to the king’s satraps, to the governors who were over each province, to the officials of all people, to every province according to its script, and to every people in their language. In the name of King Ahasuerus it was written, and sealed with the king’s signet ring.

There is a decree that has been written. The spirit of Haman is very much alive this day as it was during Biblical times. The remnant of God is being targeted. Haman will not be satisfied with just one man; he wants to decimate the entire remnant.
The accusation against us is that we are “different from all the other people” because we are guided by another set of laws and decrees.
We will refuse to bow down or pay homage to any demagogue that has set himself up as a god over the children of the Most High God. The systems of this world have wreaked havoc amongst our people. It is time to fight back; not with carnal weapons but by engaging these strongholds in the spirit and by using His Word as our weapon of choice. Haman will hang on the gallows prepared for God’s people.
Are we not in the Kingdom for such a time like this?
This is our time. It is a time to demonstrate boldness and the courage of our convictions.
