All Things are Ready
Ezekiel 37: The Dry Bones Live
1 The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.
2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry.
3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.”
4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
5 Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.
6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.” ‘ “
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone.
8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.
9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” ‘ “
10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
This prophecy was originally intended for Israel in the diaspora, the fulfilment of which we saw when they gravitated towards their home land from where they had been scattered, culminating in the nation of Israel. It can be applied to us today as we are burdened for lost souls. Jesus said He has many sheep that are not yet in the fold. We are co-workers with God, His hands and feet, His voice on the earth. We need to feel His heart beat for lost souls and respond in evangelism, confidently expecting God to give us a harvest – an increase that will result in His house being filled. Matt22:5, Luke 14:23, 1Cor3:9, Eph2:10, Rom10:9-10, 13-15, Eph5:23-25, Zech10:8-9,
We must prophetically declare the mind and will of God: that He wants people to be saved. We must go and labour in His vineyard. We must persevere no matter how impossible it may look. All things are possible to those who believe. With God all things are possible. A church in Croydon, London, planted in 2000, by another Church from Walthamstow now has planted up over twenty other churches in London and experiencing revival. If they can do it, we too can. We serve the same God. It is the same Spirit- the same power of the Holy Spirit. We must contend for the faith, not rest on our laurels and say we have arrived. We must be hungry for God’s best. We must not make our God small.
” Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
We seek God’s face, hear Him and do what He says. We must be ready to spend and be spent for Him. If we pay the price we will obtain the prize.
Scriptures: Matt22:1-10, Luke14:15-23, Matt28:18-20, Rom10:9-10,13-15, Luke15, Act1:8, Acts2: 37-38, Luke4:1,14,18, John3:16,John3:3,5,8, Josh1:3,Ps2:8,Ps24:1, 1Sam18:20,Jer8:20, Matt9:37-38, Zech 4:6;
Let us prophetically declare this word from the Lord.

Till there is no more room.

Adam, where are you?
All Born Blind
Heaven is in my heart
Salvation belongs to our God
You laid aside your majesty
Cause me to come
Safe in the Ark
Universal was the Doom
Have You Made Room?
No single exception
Are you of the election?
All woman born
Have you been reborn?
All who did not believe
Were not received.
No rank or possession,
No character or profession,
No boasting or sneering,
No piety or conniving,
Or façade of godliness,
Universal was the doom.
All swallowed in the swoon.
My soul tremble
At the apathy.
Be not simple.
Stop the party.
Come to yourself;
Like the prodigal;
Come and confess
Come like the lost.
If you are in the cold
Or if you are lukewarm
If the first love is gone.
Come let us reason.
There is every reason
Leave the madness
Debunk the carelessness
Put to flight the foolery.
Come in a hurry.
The day is far spent
Night is on the advent.
And when you’ve made your peace
Tied the knot with the Prince of Peace
O what a joy, what merriment in heaven!
Thou shall have bliss, safe in the Ark
Thou shalt have warmth, safe in the Ark
No principality can touch, safe in the Ark
No foe or power can touch, safe in the Ark!
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
inspired by C. H. Spurgeon devotional
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”John3:3
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. ‘Because he loves me,’ says the Lord, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.’ (Psalm 91:1-16 NIVUK)
Why worry when
… Worry wears you out
Make you doubt
Causes you to shed a tear
Increases your fear
Makes you mad
Bad and then sad.
Why worry when
Worry Creates chasms
Triggers stress spasms
Causes you to rust
Makes you weep
Steals your sleep.
Why worry when…
Worry weighs you down
And makes you frown
Delays your answers
Weakens your prayers
Makes you pay interest
On trouble before it manifests.
Why worry when
Worry makes a mountain
of momentary mole hill
Breaks your focus
Causes you to curse
Why worry when
Worry Confuses and constrains you
Hijacks your breakthrough
And proceeds to break you;
Limits and drains you
Increases you palpitation
And warps your concentration.
Replace worry with faith
Confidence and trust in God.
Replace worry with prayers
And receive the peace of God.
Replace worry with hope
In a God of Hope.
Psalms 125: The LORD the Strength of His People A Song of Ascents.
1 Those who trust in the LORD Are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever.
3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest On the land allotted to the righteous, Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.
Psalms 121: God the Help of Those Who Seek Him A Song of Ascents.
1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills — From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.
Psalms 40: Faith Persevering in Trial To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry.
2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps.
3 He has put a new song in my mouth — Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
Psalms 3: The LORD Helps His Troubled People A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.
1 LORD, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.
2 Many are they who say of me, ” There is no help for him in God.” Selah
3 But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
4 I cried to the LORD with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah
5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.
7 Arise, O LORD; Save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever Ps23
…I will wait, Till my change comes.Job14:14
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
“Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
Is anything too hard for the LORD? Gen18:14
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Josh1:9
8 If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’
9 Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.”
15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.2Chro20:15
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the LORD your God, …
4 Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; ….
5 Fear not, for I am with you;
8 Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD. Jer1
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Tim1:7
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.
29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word,
30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”
31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Acts4:13,29-31
Do Not Worry
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;
and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.Phil4:6-7

Jesus is the way
Follow the Narrow Way
Narrow is the way that leads to life
But broad is the way that leads to death
Come, today, into the narrow way
Come and you will pass from death to life.
Come as you hear the knock on your door
Come as your hear the voice of your God
Today is the day of salvation
Come and you’ll be lifted from the floor.
Reach out and touch
Those that are lost
He gave so much
To you – the Just.
The bread you found
In the desert
Release the bound
Sow from your heart.
You are His hands
You are His voice
So take your stand
Make this your choice.
No matter how arid, dry and barren it may seem
Know that you are Mine and you are the redeemed
My Promises will come to pass in the fullness of time
I will arise and favour you, yes, at the set time.
Continue to hold on to My word- which remains true
From the back you will come to the front of the queue
Those who knew you before will not recognise you
Because the blood of the eternal covenant speaks for you.
