Prophetic reflection & encouragement: You,People & Your Dream/ Destiny Fulfillment

Introduction:

In the early hours of this morning I felt led to write this (was not planned or structured…just written in prose as it is). I have a strong sense that this is truly a word for many out there, especially as we prepare to enter into a new year (equal new era) be blessed!
You, People & Your Dream/Destiny Fufillment:
One of the signs of the times we live in is that when one is excelling there are few people in one’s current and past life who want to acknowledge this fact, in fact many shun or avoid the one excelling or achieving positive things as though they were a plague and cannot be approached.
This is rooted in gross insecurities among people which is also a sign of the times we live in; people are grossly infirmed with a lack of self worth, low self esteem and jealousy, so that the fangs of rage are exposed as as the horns of a wild bull positioned for the attack when others they know, even close friends excel, receive trophies on their mantel pieces or become fruitful for all to see.

Will a word of recognition, acclamation or praise for the achiever escape their lips? Will they be found near or far? No instead many escape, hide or pretend the new era of the achiever does not exist, wishing they were losers or back to the state when there was no fear that they would rise or excel, when it was easier to be their mate, when they were mere no-bodies in lives of mediocrity or triviality. Even critical thoughts against them emerge “look at them with their airs & graces!” “Who do they think they are?!” and fumes of anger penetrate the air at the mention of their name and “stop” signs that are a “don’t go there” reminder are seen before one’s eyes when they visualise the person.

However if you were in dire straits, are afflicted day and night these same people inclined to shun you in times of your pathway to achievement will run to your aid with kind offers of help and demonstrations of love and offering wise counsel. That is their tendency, seeking out, looking for the afflicted or down and out to show them they care. Some are genuine but many are deceivers for their motives are not selfless, nor are they rooted in the fact that they love God and desire to demonstrate His love to others, nor do they love you. It is because they love themselves (yes again a sign of the times, a great multitude of lovers of selves…) to the point that their desire to self exalt, feed and so inflate a deflated ego or self worth is done at the expense of one they appear to want to help, love or care for in their distress. In the secret place of a warped mind, there is a sign of contentment, a whisper of glee “Ah at least I am not like them”, “I am in a better place than he/she is”.

The aforementioned is not the pitiful state of every interpersonal relationship, however it is in this context that I am inclined to write; Should a man or a woman stop achieving and excelling because there is a sea of opposing crowds, false friends and two faced hanger ons?

Should they give up on fulfilling dreams because those they called friends and even family play the blind, deaf and mute with some even acting as strangers no where to be found?

My answer, my counsel is NO and NEVER. Let them go for those who want to take flight from your life, in fact open the door for them and move things out of their way, so they can depart very quickly with ease. You have much to contend with in your journey and worrying about or being offended by such as these is a waste of time and energy that need to be reserved for that which is important in terms of the process for achieving your goals. Ensure you stay in a spirit of praise, worship and thanksgiving ensuring your conscience in clear if not be quick to repent and forgive so that nothing stops your partnership with God to fulfill your destiny for the glory of God.
The journey to fulfil your destiny, achieve what you have set your heart to based on prophetic words or dreams may be a road of solitude and suffering, but rest assured it is temporary. The joy and glory reaped in times of success far our way the afflictions and loneliness. Many shall benefit from your joy and achievements and along the way and in that place of fulfilment, a new crowd shall emerge, ones with whom you walk, laugh, sing and rejoice. A people who will be as family shall be an added prize. These have walked a similar walk and as you have a genuine cup running over of empathy, compassion and encouragement to be poured out to a world in need.
In the journey of life some people will always be as car brakes and stop lights while others will be as fuel and accelerators for the advance. Therefore come what may regardless of how people act, react or what they say, take hold of those dreams and visions from deep within and received from God’s written as well as prophetically uttered word and arise and ascend to the place of glorious fulfilment.

God bless you

Poem of inspirational & prophetic counsel: The Only Opinion that Matters

Introductory discourse:

Whose opinion really matters ? God’s or those of other people? Sadly not everyone treats others with the respect every human being merits. Some will choose to respect or treat others nicely,kindly or respectfully only based on what appeals to them in terms of the person’s economic/social status, culture, religion, nationality or race. This is the fallen ungodly nature still raging within. Let us examine our hearts and if we have this tendency to repent and ask God for forgiveness and cleansing. It is not too late to start afresh and change our ways.

We must always remember that who we are or our worth is not based on how people, society or the “status quo” defines us, but rather on who God Almighty defines us according to His Word. Can I get an Amen?!

Poem: This prophetic poem is intended to remind us, give us some uplifting and inspiration as we interact with one another:

The Only Opinion that Matters

If people complain “my you look so plain” or don’t like you ’cause of your hair and barely there or no make up flair
or whatever the superficial reason,
ask yourself “Whose opinion of me shall I put on the shelf,
the Most High’s or those who elevate self and denigrate other people’s worth?”
The Word of God never on the shelf
but in your heart is rich with God’s opinion to impart.

Christ did not entrust himself to man ’cause he knew what was in their hearts. Entrust yourself to God who declares all men equal,
as a creature in His image your unique outer and inner self is great to behold!
If saved by Christ, washed in his blood then brother, sister you are the righteousness of God and His workmanship in Christ Jesus, to do the works of God.
A clay jar you are with treasure within revealing that the excellency of power is of God and not of men.

Take heed to pay no attention to opinions that lead to destruction.
When some shun and reject you if they find your exterior wrapping unappealing,
it is true to say “a chance they have missed to be blessed by the treasure therein.”
Their blinded eyes deceiving them that they can see,
they live life in realms of superficiality rejecting the “skin deep” reality and end up drowning in a sea of frivolity.

God chose David to be Israel’s King not for his appearance but ’cause he was a man after God’s own heart.
Accept only the opinion of God who said “People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1)”,
and remember to “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life (2)”.

Scriptural inspiration: Ephesians 2:10, 2 Corinth. 5:21, 2 Corinth 4:7. Quotes (1) 1 Sam 16:7 NLT (2) Proverbs 4:23

Poem : Rise of the Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies Revolution

img_2812

Liars sing to the tune of a shrieking lyre, a deceptive song. Claiming to be in the light of God as leaders, peacemakers, church workers and members of notable fraternities.

They abide in darkness ’cause of hate for their brother of a different mother and father, from a different land altogether, a place much further.

Delusional and encaged in hollow rage they live in twilight and are sick in their minds ’cause of the deceiver’s dynamite.

They dwell in ancient chambers with hellish ideas of who is who, delighting in the master and slave relational status quo.

The window blinds to their heart are down. Blind they think they can see, a walking dead living on dead end street.

Embossed on their hearts as a badge of honour is hate for another race, one of a foreign land or religion and are chocked with unforgiveness towards their neighbour.

They drown in the sea of hate, spouting venom in divisive hood, beating the drum of falsehood, scheming a race and social war in many a neighbourhood.

Triumphant Warriors are on the rise; some on bended knees, others in action so the world can see, as they fight for God’s love and unity to be man’s keen priority.

Forever destroyers of satanic agendas and judgements, the heavenly regiment sound the Most High’s gong with this redemptive truth in their song:

“Forgive and you shall be forgiven by the Father. Love God and one another,
regardless of skin colour, race, social status and one’s gender”.

Note: In the midst of it all…God orchestrates and allows events for his ultimate purposes (i.e hardening Pharaoh’s heart so that he reinforced his hand against Israelites …until God’s appointed time…to arise!) for judgement through suffering & ultimate glory.

In addition God speaks through events He allows AND REVEALS THE TRUE HEART CONDITION OF PEOPLE. A new era is upon us: a great showdown as never before of agents of truth/love (God) and lies/hate (Satan) in terms of interpersonal relations, with issues of tolerance, race, religion & social/economic class status being at the core of this reinforced spiritual war for souls manifesting in the natural.

Can you hear God speak, do you see the writing on the wall in significant world events?

Intercessors, Prayer Warriors Arise!!!

Who I’m I ? It’s a matter of perspective!

(Introduction
Often times we erroneously see ourselves the way others or society sees us first and foremost and then we act accordingly to please others or fit into the status quo created for us personally in terms of either our gender, social or economic status, race or nationality.
From a Christian perspective this poem and the prophetic discourse, counsel and encouragement derived from it express the importance of defining who you are according to how you see yourself, looking within as opposed to through the eyes of others. As one with a testimony of having learnt to see herself through Christ, I encourage others to  accept and love themselves as well as cherish whatever they have whether much or little. You will be a better person for it and it will reflect in how you relate to and treat others. If you are a Christian you have the daily blessed assurance through God’s word (the Bible) that He loves you with an everlasting love and through Him you find your worth.

(I) Poem: The Streer Dweller / (II) Prophetic discourse, counsel & encouragement derived from the Poem.

(I) Poem: The Street Dweller

They call me “Homeless”
but don’t care to ask my name.
I prefer “Street Dweller”
’cause the streets are my home.

They call me purposeless
but life on the streets spell
“Survival of the fittest” that
makes me far from useless.

They call me hopeless
but I have hope as I am
streetwise.
From place to place I trek,
I know bins full of food,
and outside which shop to beg.
Bus drivers know me,
turn a blind eye when I hop
on for free rides with my dog Fred.

They call me senseless
but I put to use the common
sense given by the Most High
when I look to the sky and
can tell if it shall rain or shine.
Then I know where to lay
my head; in someone’s shed, a
fold up box, open air?
anywhere as long as it
is miles away from a fox!

I am a street dweller.
Yes, among life’s fittest.
A survivor, that’s who I am.

(II) Prophetic discourse, Counsel and Encouragement derived from Poem.

One who lives in a home, has an address to go to can easily think “why would one want to live on the streets! Whatever name one chooses to be called “Homeless” or “Street Dweller” does not change the fact that they are in an undesirable status in life!”

Such a thought is not necessarily malicious, most people prefer a roof over their heads, a place to call home. However as we can see from this poem, the street dweller is expressing how they perceive their situation or circumstance which is contrary to how people, to his or her knowledge perceive it.

The street dweller has accepted their status as their reality. The circumstance or situation which resulted in them being as such is neither here nor there, they are proud to be living on the streets and making good of their life on the streets. They have learnt to survive and have dignity and self respect. Their descriptive prose is also saying loud and clear: this is who I am, take it or leave it! They actually compel one to respect them.

A number of reflections and lessons can be derived from this poem as well as words of counsel and encouragement or exhortation, here are some:

If people superficially put you in a box, assume things about you or stereotype you because of how society and others perceive or treat “people like you” i.e your economic, social status and race or cultural background, it is actually only you and you alone who can dismantle those superficial or stereotypical assumptions about who they think you are or how they expect you to behave.

Not that you have to make a conscious effort to change their minds or attitudes about you; Your manner of self-perception, self-relation, self-definition and self-respect in relation to who you are and your circumstance will greatly influence how people treat and perceive you.

Despite being born as a member of a family you are a unique being.Unique also within one human race and within diverse racial or ethnic groups, social and economic group of the human race. There is only one you!

However if you find that despite being unique and basically your true self within and still feel unaccepted by some because of your social and economic status, nationality, race or cultural background there is nothing you can do about it. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. However you have to make sure that you stay true to who you are as a person and not be driven to say things or act in ways that agree with any false labels about who you are or what people think you are supposed to be.

People may not understand your circumstances or even know all the background experiences and elements which have made you who you currently are, but learning to connect with your true self within, loving and respecting who you are without comparison to anyone else will constantly shatter any adverse effects that negative words and actions may otherwise have on you.
There is a scripture in the bible “Love your neighbour as yourself”.

Self love and respect results in expressions of love and respect towards others also because you inevitably empathise, have compassion for or appreciate other human beings more. As much as you cultivate positive self worth so too you see the bigger picture; the world is full of people who are worthy to be loved and respected as you are. It is therefore impossible for people who have a habit of putting people down or taunting and backbiting to befriend you or be among your close circle of friends.

In the context of the Street Dweller’s message, being a survivor is being an overcomer from having your worth defined by how others perceive you. Whatever your status or circumstance in life, ensure that you can say like the Street Dweller:
“Yes, among life’s fittest.
A survivor, that’s who I am.”

 

Prophetic Insight: Crazy Clowns & A Circus in the Dead of Night…

d8f6a0af-ec68-4204-8cfc-0ffaa5840737Sinister Clowns appearing all over cities in America & UK
– A prophetic revelation of the reinforced wicked state of our world: The scary masquerading ruling class in the “circus”  land & church.
-My poem: “A Circus in the Dead of Night” comes to mind.

All this hype which is real about sinister clowns popping up everywhere and scaring children.
This is a natural manifestation of what is happening in the spiritual realm, a reinforcement of Satan and his demons as masked or masquerading beings even through politicians, judges and the ruling class deceiving God’s creation (his children), scaring them to the point that many no longer want to have anything to do with politics, the government nor do they think it is worth voting.

The same is on the increase in the church, Satan’s agents or sorcerers, people who don’t want to pay the sacrificial price of a Christian faith who are masked or two faced parading or masquerading as pastors “clowns” in the pulpit, saying one thing and doing another mocking children of God and frightening many so that they no longer trust the establishment that is church!

This is all confirming prophecy that wickedness will increase. Indeed even those in high office in the church and secular world are increasingly engaging in deplorable things as they have no fear of God. They are involved in lasciviousness, debauchery, hedonism; prostitution, sexual assault and rape, which some even justify or think it is funny saying their vices are not as bad as someone else. Increasingly people are seeing their leaders for who they are (behind the masks) and many in subjugation are in danger of being in likeness to them, masked clowns because one naturally follows the leader!!

This is the most difficult era for those with any good or godly moral sense!

There is much reason to lament ! But we who trust God of our Lord Jesus Christ have hope!

Praying for discernment or the gift of discerning of spirits is more crucial in this hour than ever before; God help us to discern truth from deception/hypocrisy in Jesus’ mighty name!
Intercessors let us continue praying fervently!!!

REMINDER OF A POEM I WROTE: “A circus in the dead of night”
I have started to hear about these scary clowns in the last two weeks only and it started in America, when exactly I do not know. However each time my mind goes to a poem I woke up one morning in mid September and felt compelled to write:

A Circus in the Dead of Night

The world is a circus in the dead of night with bestial ways abounding
as men display their skills and talents
to an audience preferring the vile and
dangerous feats in life’s parade.

The hypocrite and deceiver is the masked mocker, the clown who
manipulates and seduces the crowd for loud laughs and reverence, but strikes when one’s guard is down.

The broken and maimed form a continuous procession along the streets as on a carousel.
A people whose fate is for the gain of the owner of keys to their chains.

Fearful and oppressed nerves jitter as on a roller coaster.
Confused and worried minds dizzy in thought as on a merry go round.

Well suited masses are a shadow of their true selves, each a reflection of someone else.
The living dead, consumed with self are performers in the concert of life. As circus artists in camouflage they dance the jive of death to the tune of funeral criers and church bell chimes.

The world is a circus in crises in the dead of night, will it welcome broad day light and the appearance of the healer, a true giver of life?
