The start of this year has been traumatic for many. Bushfires have caused terrible damage and loss of life. God's creation is suffering and many will be wondering why. God has a plan and purpose in all that goes on in the environment. 

Early in 2019, Robyn Bateman, Blue Room House of Prayer, had this prophecy. It seems to me that we have witnessed the first part come to pass - first fire, then the rain has fallen, heavily in many areas. As we read the rest of the prophecy, it is extremely challenging but also very encouraging.

Judgement begins with the House of God (1 Peter 4:17). I believe that the prophecy should be a wake up call to the apathetic, the religious, the complacent and those who are Christians outwardly only.

The prophecy is quoted verbatim. This ministry agrees 100% with the declarations made. We pray that God's will comes to pass without delay.

 

"As I sought the Lord today in the light of His answered prayer over the election this is what I believe He was saying to me beyond what I might think or feel.

Hold fast in the storm and tempest you are about to experience. What has happened today is a precursor to a much greater battle.

For too long the visions and dreams of my people have been locked up and appeared to be unachievable. I am breaking the padlocks and opening the hidden places in the hearts of those who have been faithful to trust me with their disappointment, sadness, frustration and sorrow.

My Glory Cloud is settling over this Valley and the Nation. Open your hearts in order to see Me and hear Me in the POWER of MY PRESENCE. First the FIRE and then the WATER. Then you will truly know “I AM” the God of miracles. There will be no room for doubt only a choice to SERVE ME WHOLEHEARTEDLY or alternatively turn back to the god of this world.

This is the VALLEY OF DECISION and no longer will I tolerate those who are half hearted or double minded in their worship of me. Many will fall by the wayside and go their own way and many who have been obstinate oppositional and disobedient will bow down and worship in Spirit and in Truth. I alone will reveal the true state of the human heart. Do not be deceived by eloquent argument and lofty ideas. Guard your heart against false witness and testimony. My work is clearly discernable by my signature “THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST”. Nothing else will be tolerated.

Know me in your going out and coming in. Let me constantly guide your steps. I am always available. Not at a distance. Trust me with every moment of your life. Do not be troubled about your earthly needs my provision is all sufficient. Carry only my PRESENCE as your necessary equipment to do the work of MY KINGDOM here on earth.

Be at peace with your fellow believers and listen carefully to what they are saying. There are many aspects of my plans that are shared with MY BODY. Pray for discernment and above all my Grace in order that nothing from my revelation be lost. Only as you work in UNITY will you be able to truly celebrate the WONDER OF MY GLORY.

Be at peace my children. Walk in the preparedness of the SPIRIT for I am about to EXPLODE IN SOVEREIGN POWER and there will be a shaking and cleansing.
I AM UNLOCKING THE VISIONS AND THE DREAMS.
Put down your anchor deep into the ROCK OF YOUR SALVATION.
BEHOLD I AM DOING A NEW THING."

 

 

The Supremacy of Lord Jesus (14th July 2019)

 

It is obvious to most Christians that we live in the last of the last days. Much of what used to be considered normal Christian teaching is under fire from various groups that call themselves Christian. So-called "Progressives" advocate for a social gospel that accepts same sex marriage as normal and acceptable to God. That there is simply zero support for this position in God's word means little to "Progressives."

Another fallacy that has crept in is in relation to God's written word, the Bible. It has become the subject of intense scrutiny from scholars who seem bent on undermining the authority of God's word. There is nothing new about this. However, it has become more mainstream. It seems that experiences have become a substitute for truth. 

The world complains that Christians are divisive when they preach the gospel. The world is controlled by Satan, so what do we expect? However, Christians need to take a stand and not allow the world to silence those who speak the truth in love. Israel Folau created a storm when he published a passage from the Bible that condemns sin. He was backed up by many, but some Christians rebuked him. It is a tragedy that Christians would oppose a brother who is presenting the truth of God's word.

My last example of the evidence of the last days is the false emphasis on the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit assuredly has a vital role to play in the life of the Christian. Without the Holy Spirit we lack spiritual life, even though we may be born again. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit gives us essential power that we might be witnesses for Christ. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is our character and holiness. The gifts of the Holy Spirit edify and build up the Church.

Why should the emphasis on the Holy Spirit be an issue? In order to discern this, we need to know God's ordering.  God has given Lord Jesus the name above all names. There is no other name given under heaven that can save us. God's will is that the Lord Jesus should fill all things. Lord Jesus was exalted and so received the "Promise of the Father", the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus is the Baptiser in the Holy Spirit. God's intent is that all things shall be summed up in Christ. If you need convincing, look up the references to what God has done for us "in Christ". In short, everything.

"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17. An influential preacher, also considered by many to be a prophet, declared that this verse means that the Holy Spirit is Lord. No! A thousand times, no. That interpretation cuts across everything else that the New Testament has to say about the Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit did not die on the cross for us. The Holy Spirit had no blood to shed for our sins. The Holy Spirit has no body to take the sins of mankind or the terrible scourge wounds that heal. Lord Jesus said,

"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you." John 16:13-15

If what you are hearing is not glorifying the Lord Jesus and hence the Father, then it is false. Lord Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Indeed Jesus is Lord. Let us never lose sight of this fact or be misled into a false view of the Holy Spirit.

In these last days deceptions about, as the Lord Jesus warned us. We have other examples, such as the false emphasis on properity. What is the antidote? Truth. We need to restore teaching as a basic necessity in the Body of Christ. We need to restore the five fold ministry gifts to the Church. God's people are still being destroyed for lack of knowledge. Sincerity will not save us from deception. Spiritual knowledge will protect us. Let's pray for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. Let's seek to know Christ, not just know about Him. Let's seek the Kingdom of God as our urgent priority. The world needs to see the Church exalting and glorifying Lord Jesus and loving one another as He loves us. That is the witness that the world needs to see.

 

The Myth of Evolution (June 2019)

 

When I was very young, the authority figures in my life told me about Santa Claus. I believed them. Why would I not? The gifts arrived like clockwork, every year. I saw Santas everywhere. The shops were full of Santa merchandise and schools promoted the Santa obsession. One day, I realised that it was all false. The objective of this deception seemed mostly to get the cash registers humming along for a couple of months a year. Even those adults who do not believe in Santa perpetuate the myth.

The Santa myth serves a number of useful purposes. We can see how it benefits the economy. Parents used the Santa myth as a discipline tool, or as a bribe. “Do well at school and we’ll get you a bike for Christmas.” There is a much more insidious motivation to promote Santa. It is a great distraction from the true message of Christmas. “Glory to God in the Highest” has been replaced with “Santa Claus is coming to town”. So the anti-Christ forces have hijacked Christmas for commercial ends. This should surprise no believer. The love of money is indeed the root of all evil.

There is another myth that is perpetuated that has a number of similarities. It has the same objective, to distract and detract from the Kingdom of God. The myth is that of evolution. Even the word evolution has been twisted to suit the prevailing viewpoint of the scientific community. Should an awkward fact arise that casts doubt on the subject, evolutionist twist and turn in an attempt to explain the fact away. What used to be called adaptation, an observable and reasonable explanation of variations within species, is now known simply as evolution. This is conflated with the Darwinian concept of evolution. The unsuspecting victim of this deception is left with the impression that Darwinian evolution is fact.

Again, authority figures impress evolutionary concepts on those who are vulnerable to such deceptions. The truth is frequently suppressed. Scientists who resist the temptation to conform to this deception are often punished. Expressing private doubts publicly can lead to loss of funding and tenure, a form of blackmail for which the scientific community should be ashamed.

What is the motivation behind such a reprehensible suppression of reasoned and logical disagreement? It once again serves two purposes. The primary purpose is to deny the reality of God as the Creator. The secondary purpose is to maintain the funding to research that is in reality pointless. Never get between a scientist and his/her grant.

I am not a scientist. Neither am I a gullible fool. Walt Disney could not have concocted a more fantastic scenario. The more research that is done, the more questions arise and the less plausible evolution becomes. Sorry, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus. And Darwin was wrong.

Not convinced? Nobel prize winner and evolutionist Dr Francis Crick:

“An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that, in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle" and, "Every time I write a paper on the origin of life, I determine I will never write another one, because there is too much speculation running after too few facts."

Dr Crick was almost right. The origin of life is a miracle. There is no other plausible explanation.
