The Coming Of The LORD

Will The Lord Come Anytime Soon? 

“Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!” (Psalm 27:14 NKJV). Also, “Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20 NKJV). Naturally, the hardest thing for people to overcome is our inability to be patient and wait (Exodus 32:1; 1 Samuel 13:11-12).

Vision From Claudia: I received a Vision from the Lord on the 24/01/2020. I saw myself being at school with many other learners around me enjoying lunch break. Suddenly, I heard a very LOUD ear deafening Thunder as if it was a warning. I saw all the unsaved people everywhere  screaming and running and as they were running the earth opened underneath them and they would fall while screaming and being terrified into the deep dark holes (Numbers 26:10). While the vision was being shown to me the Lord urged me to record what I saw saying "this is a message for all to be ready". End!

Brethren, let us rejoice in patience as we are waiting for our redemption. As a family, we believe the Lord Jesus Christ is Coming in our life-time! Again, as the Lord provides these visions and messages we will share in love in Jesus name with the hope to encourage and get many ready for the Lord's soon coming.

Important Observation! It is a fact, some Christians are just tired of waiting for the coming of the Lord so they imagine rapture dates and sadly some brethren are led into believing these false rapture dates. We are repeating the Lord is coming like a thief (Revelations 16:15; 1 Thessalonians 5:2) and we HEARD FIRST HAND FROM THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF THAT HE WILL PUNISH THOSE WHO SET DATES BECAUSE IT DESTROYS THE FAITH OF MANY. Please read this WARNING

The Consequences of Bad Choices 

From the latter Scriptures above, we read how the people involved acted impulsively, fearfully and out of uncertainty which led them to sin and suffer terrible consequences in the process for their impetuous efforts. If they waited humbly and with patience they would have inherited great blessings which would have change the course of their destiny and for the greater benefit of their descendants (1 Samuel 13:13-14; Exodus 32:33-35).

Humanly, it is often tempting to disregard the Lord’s warnings and commands and substitute it with what we think is best and from the experience of Saul and the children of Israel the end result did not favour their well-being. The point we are making here is, if we overstep God’s authority and follow our own counsel, we will reap the consequences of our impatient choices. We must bear in mind though, that the consequences of disobedience are irreversible (Numbers 20:12; 2 Samuel 12:11-12).

Many would argue and say, “but I asked the Lord to forgive me”, good! So did David (Psalm 51) but he suffered the consequences (see 2 Samuel 15 to 20). We may also put it this way, the Lord will willingly forgive us but we will have accept the consequences of our wrong actions. As an example, the apostle Paul repented of his sins but the consequences of his previous convictions followed him (Acts 9:15-25).

Too often, some Christians are blinded by their own mistakes and by avoiding to accept the consequences, they start complaining bitterly and are just about ready to give up on their faith. My work in the ministry has helped me observe why some people complain, suffer and backslide. Upon a closer examination of their past habits and some of their choices, we have been able to see exactly why they are in the mess they found themselves in. When we engage with them, we ask questions and our exercise of asking relevant questions is simply to determine how the person arrived at the problem they are facing, and to help them identify the mistake that led to the problem, which should lead them to repent, and apply the Word of correction leading them receive deliverance with peace of mind (James 4:1-3).

Finding Peace through Christ and Nowhere Else

Apart from material possessions, no Christian or non-Christian can claim to have a perfect and trouble free life, never in this world! We are all somewhat ever engaged in finding some kind of solution(s) for the problems we face. As we scout for solutions we see that some people from all walks of life choose either of the following:
  • Being a Christian will naturally lead us in prayer to God for whatever help we need, and like I indicated above, did we identify our own mistakes that led us to the problem and are we genuinely repentant? (2 Samuel 12:13; Luke 15:18-20) and if so, are we willing to accept the consequences of our actions (1 Chronicles 21:17) and allow God to carve out a new journey based on a humble and an improved relationship with Him (Luke 15:20-24).
  • Sadly but true, non-Christians often overlook the consequences of sin being the cause of their problems and they consequently live with the problem. Being without peace as a reward for knowing Christ (John 14:27), they substitute it by employing other sins of pleasure like alcohol, drugs, and engaging in lustful entertainment. This ends in a vicious and repetitive cycle until the person realises his or her conscience state and seeks and finds rest in the Saviour from sin and destruction (Matthew 11:28).
  • With the advent of many technological advancements, people look for solutions in science, while this provides possible solutions it is limited and over dependence on science leads us away from God thus contradicting the nature and order of things in creation (Romans 1:25; Psalm 104:27; 145:15).
  • Others, in a desperate attempt to eradicate the afflictions of the day, skilfully examines the past for possible answers and if they can’t find remedy they long for the past (Numbers 14:4; Isaiah 43:18). Brethren, our past footsteps have been erased and despite the good we enjoyed then, we have a future in Christ to look to “…which was established upon better promises” (Hebrews 8:7 KJV). As a reminder, God has set our journey through life to happen once (Hebrews 9:27), and we come across the various intersections (life’s experiences) once and these should better equip us to make the right decisions every time. If we fail, God is willing to pick us up (1 John 1:9) and put us on a new path (2 Corinthians 5:17) warning us never to take the journey back (Deuteronomy 17:16).
Before concluding, brethren we should ask ourselves a question; has our uncertainties and doubts driven us to examine various opinions and so-called prophecies which affected our walk with the Lord? Are you tired of waiting on the Lord’s coming so you took matters in your hands risking your salvation and engaged in worldly pleasures? (Matthew 24:46-50). Has the problems in life defeated you that you see no solution? Repent, work on your new life in Christ and waiting on the Lord will produce a fruitful service (Philippians 1:22).

Finally, we should remember for our Heaven journey, we are encouraged to endure (Matthew 24:13) while we patiently awaits for our redemption. The word of God says, “For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him” (Hebrews 10:36-38).

If you would like to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and escape the snares of death, please get started by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, you may please contact us.

Blessed regards in patient endurance,

The Peaceful Presence Of God

Humility With Servant Attitude Moves God

“Your dwelling place is lovely, O Lord of Armies! My soul longs and yearns for the Lord’s courtyards. My whole body shouts for joy to the living God. Even sparrows find a home, and swallows find a nest for themselves. There they hatch their young near your altars, O Lord of Armies, my king and my God. Blessed are those who live in your house. They are always praising you” (Psalm 84:1-4 GWT).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We will be sharing Visions and messages From The Lord To Claudia as He directs (Brother Glenn and Sister Desiree's 13 year old daughter). These will be updated on our VISIONS PAGE. As a family and ministry, we know that these messages and warnings from the Lord are not just for us but for the whole world and in obedience to Him we will make it available on this website. 

Brethren, please bear with us just a little on this matter, some time ago a few brethren mocked us regarding the Lord's coming thinking that we made up these and other warnings the Lord gave us. We are confident that the Lord's words will be fulfilled we will therefore not be deterred by the slander and accusations of doubtful people but we will share the Lord's visions and messages (1 Corinthians 9:16).

Now on 5 January, 2020 the Lord Jesus appeared to Claudia after her early morning prayers just after she went back to bed. The Lord showed her in a vision where she was alone in a forest surrounded by beautiful trees and the Lord said to her, "I WILL SHOW YOU SOMETHING, BUT YOU MUST HAVE FAITH" (Hebrews 11:6). 


During the time we were waiting to hear from the Lord again, we prayed and she also prayed earnestly crying to the Lord and after about 2 weeks, the Lord kept His good promise and appeared again to her during the morning hours of 18 January, 2020,where she again found herself in the forest alone The Lord showed her how a father and his daughter were running from a raging fire, and she heard the thunderous voice of the Lord saying, "I AM COMING SOON AND YOU SHOULD WRITE DOWN MY WORDS! End of vision.

As for our message today, Sometime ago, the Lord Jesus Christ commanded my wife and I to recruit people we know to be Christians to form a prayer and fellowship group. At first when the people realized it was the Lord Himself speaking there was a great excitement and the prayer attendance was one hundred percent. In fact, the excitement was almost similar like the one the believers experienced in Acts (Acts 4:32-35).

From our experience we can identify with the brethren in the bible book of Acts, the reassure of the LOVE of Christ and hearing from Himself truly translates into a feeling greater than anything on earth. The richness and purity coming from ones heart and soul is so refreshing and such radiance from within is evident from the outside (Exodus 34:29-35). To my best depiction of this feeling of reassurance of the Lord’s love, it feels like one can give him or herself away to others to help them and dissolve their problems away. In addition, in my experience such LOVE from the Lord is so all encompassing and consuming that the sense of thinking of oneself simply disappears (Acts 4:32; Philippians 2:6-11).

Furthermore, as the Lord spoke to us and often referring us to the Bible to confirm His Words, our love and appreciation for the scriptures deepened that gave us an unshakable and unquestionable faith that shook off all arrows of doubts and unbelief (Ephesians 6:16). Like Peter, the excitement of knowing it is the Lord approaching lifts our faith to an unimaginable level where everything just seems impossible and within reach (Matthew 14:28). Beloved brethren, this is a real testimony and we shared this testimony on this platform on how the Lord brought back our baby daughter Cailin to life after she died and having discoloured with rigor mortis already settled in. After praying and rebuking the spirit of death in Jesus name, the Lord revived our daughter. You may read that testimony under this heading Patience: An Essential Fruit to Inherit God's Promises and if you don’t find it please email us to forward it to you.

The Sorrows Of Life

Coming back to the believers we recruited, each one had their own needs and we all desired the Lord to have a look at our problems. The Lord knowing our hearts and the strength of our faith, commanded us just to continue praying for our needs. As it was, some expected the Lord to first provide the needs but God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34) He wanted us to pray and those who obeyed and persevered were blessed while those who walked away failed to hear or received from God (Colossians 4:2-6).

God Before Everything Equals His Purpose

However, soon after the Lord challenged the believers who joined our fellowship to go out witnessing and serving Him with sincerity of heart (James 2:17) some who appeared very sincere and promising in the beginning started giving excuses and staying away from the fellowship. What we can say is that in general, some people value their needs higher than God and not only are we need driven the sorrows of life invites the spirit of doubt which shakes and shatters our faith and that is exactly how some of the brethren viewed their relationship with God, needs first and God second! Typical of human nature, which loudly expresses itself in ‘serve me first before I give and serve’, but with God it is “But first, be concerned about his kingdom and what has his approval. Then all these things will be provided for you” (Matthew 6:33 GWT). In the very beginning of God’s relationship with people, He commanded “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as you love yourself” (Luke 10:27 GWT).

Thus, this is a Kingdom principle, we need God first and needs will be provided for (Matthew 6:33). Personally, my soul always longs for God’s purity and His Presence I experienced and it surpasses life and that is a Space no one wants to trade or leave (John 6:68; Genesis 32:24-30). Now brethren, we are not lying to you when we say we have heard from the Lord Jesus Christ and many of you can experience Him too on a personal level and only three things are required believe in Him, accept Him as Lord and Saviour and obey Him (John 14:12; Matthew 7:24-25).

In conclusion, if you ever desired to be someone else because your circumstances dictated that, accept your position in life even from there God is calling you or have called you to share in His Glory (1 Corinthians 7:20; Romans 8:17; 1 Peter 4:13). As for those of us who received the grace of experiencing God only had a ‘brief treat of His Living and soul Penetrating Presence’ and this is a longing and desire that will always strife with us. Not so easy though! We still have the flesh to overcome and everything the devil throws at us to deny us entry so the Lord commanded us to persevere and only that way will we gain access into His inviting and beautifully alluring Presence. Do you want to GO THERE...Heaven where His Presence Dwell?

Well, we would like to extend an invitation to anyone who does not know the Lord Jesus Christ yet, or of you are not born again, to pray our suggested prayer on this link Prayer of Sincere Repentance by faith and follow the Lord (Matthew 4:19). You may also contact us for any questions or comments about this article or our ministry.
Bless you all

How To Overcome The spirit Of disobedience

The spirit Of Disobedience

…”in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient” (Ephesians 2:2).

Sometime ago, the Lord gave us a message and He said, “No children are allowed in tonight’s worship session and John (Not real name, and being 11 years at the time) must be present so that he can receive deliverance from his demons”.

Now, when John was about nine (9) years old, we led him to the Lord and at first, like all new babes in Christ (1 Peter 2:2) he walked obediently and the Lord rewarded him for that. As a family, we could sense the Lord’s Joy when people acted obediently and He always expressed such Joy through His messages to people and often His Joy would be accompanied by a blessing that brought the Lord great pleasure. We hasten to add, that little John was equally grateful to the Lord for his blessings and the Lord’s attention and love for him. As we knew, this was aimed at encouraging John to lead an obedient lifestyle (John 15:2).

Ungodly Interest, The Cause Of Our Fall

Being human, and since John enlarged his friendship circle, his interest in other things increased and subsequently his commitment to the Lord took a downward spiral. As it was, the ‘tools’ like daily bible reading he needed to build his spiritual live became a burden to him. He despised bible reading, prayer and his Christian manners (Ephesians 6:1; 1 Peter 2:2; Jude 1:20) and the result of his dissociation with the Lord was manifestly evident and his tongue twisted from being heartily truthful (Psalm 15:2; Ephesians 4:15) to being deceitful in his speech. It must be added, not only was his speech crooked, but his behaviour and the very content of his heart (Proverbs 4:23; Matthew 15:19).

Furthermore, those of us reading here can bear witness that as we slowed down in our commitment to the Lord so does our spiritual fruit which withers. A brother in the Lord once confided in me that being a Christian and in ministry, he came across many Christian brethren who were heartedly backslidden, but orally armed with the usual Christian jargon, and they can talk up a good salvation message while their hearts and interest are elsewhere. By this, I am being reminded by a conversation I had with a young man a few years ago, he agreed with me on our need for salvation and he even expressed great admiration for his father’s faith in the Lord, while he had his eyes on worldly things. This was confirmed by the Lord when He gave the young man a message saying that his mind was in the world, like our lead scripture, this is where disobedience resides (Ephesians 2:2).

Work Status To Promote Self

Often, Christians finds it difficult to balance their lives between being a committed Christian and a career. Like we acknowledged in our Laziness article, work is necessary (2 Thessalonians 3:10) but our work must NOT be priority over our relationship with God (Daniel 6:3-4). From the preceding verse, the Prophet Daniel was a diligent and hardworking man, however, he did not allow the love for his job to compromise his relationship with God. Neither was he hungry for power and admiration since the King planned to promote him (Daniel 6:3), he exercised his duties faithful and in the fear of God (Colossians 3:23) and not to display his ‘glory’ as some are in the habit of showing off their power positions to control and draw others to their status. It is common knowledge today that people regard their high social standing due to their influential positions as their 'glory' and trademark to gain power over others, their work is not of being a servant, but to be adored. What we know scripturally, is that the spirit of service at work in the Prophet Daniel was humility, and that same spirit was found in Joseph as well (Genesis 39:8), even as epitomised by our Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:5-11).

The Influence Of The Strong Man In Us

Let me frankly put it this way, there is a STRONGMAN in each one of us (Mark 3:27), and the Apostle Paul it the ‘spirit of disobedience. No doubt, this being does not fear God, neither does it want to submit to Him. It is only at the command and obedience to God’s Word that we overcome this being which controls and directs our will to disobey the Lord (Romans 7:15-20). In other words, our victory in leading a sinless life would be that we subject ourselves to unquestionable submission to the Lord which is essentially an expression of humility (Romans 6:13; 12:1-2). It can therefore be said, that if we are moved by such humility no STRONGMAN would have a hold in some area of our lives. You heard correctly! The STRONGMAN possesses certain areas of our lives which influences our relationship with the Lord and with others (1 John 3:10; Acts 10:13; John 8:44). Like we have learned from John, a lying tongue has a touch of Satan to it and so does anger, fighting, swearing, screaming, stealing, gossip and pride (John 10:10; Galatians 5:19-21). Thus, all these vices are indicative of the STRONGMAN’S influence if we manifest any of these or any other act that is contrary to God’s will. Also, you will probably remember that we shared in some previous articles that the Lord rebuked a brother in our ministry and attributing his spirit of anger to Satan’s influence and possession (Matthew 16:23). Therefore, words and status will NEVER be able to substitute humility, for the spirit of humility issues from the heart in obedience to the Lord (Matthew 12:35; Galatians 5:22-23).

In Conclusion, if you are serious in conquering the STRONGMAN and possessing the spirit of humility, you need to repent and train your spirit daily through submissive obedience to the Lord and practice love for others, this will undoubtedly rid you of ‘self-status’ and leads you to God consciousness (Psalm 139:17-18).

We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who does not know the Lord Jesus Christ yet, or of you are not born again yet, please pray our suggested prayer on this link Prayer of Sincere Repentance by faith and follow the Lord (Matthew 4:19).
