Escaping Outer Darkness

 Avoid Being Sectarian

“Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me," (Mark 9:39 NIV).

 Prayer Request

Dear Brethren, these past three weeks have been the most challenging for this family, all five of us have been infected by covid-19. As responsible citizens, we have done the best we could as a preventative measure but we could not keep the virus out. O' my dear Lord, what an arduous and painful experience this has been especially to me and my wife as a matter of fact this is the reason why we humbly beseech you all dear brethren to please pray and intercede for my dear wife, this thing has been extremely merciless towards her. As a faithful servant of the Lord, my wife has been praying for this ministry for many years from which each of you has been benefiting spiritually. 

As for this week's message, no truly born-again Christian should ever consider any Church, pastor or denomination as the best or the 'only true' movement' (Mark 9:39) such assertions are spiritually dangerous and a person's souls salvation is at stake (1 Corinthians 3:4-9). Instead, we are encouraged to prayerfully judge the content of the message holding on to what is good for our growth in the Lord (1 Thessalonians 5:21). 

Producing A Harvest

From our experience, young Christians are often 'ridding' on the faith of their mentor's and they live on the strength and statements of those they follow. It is a fact, they will often quote the statements and sayings of their mentors more than the bible. Now, we are not saying that it is wrong to learn from those who became Christians before us, (2 Timothy 3:14), however, after having learned and reading the Word of God for ourselves we are encouraged to bear fruit and produce a harvest as individual believers (Genesis 1:12; Matthew 13:8). PLEASE TAKE WARNING TO THIS MESSAGE AND AVOID BEING SURPRISED ON THAT DAY, SURELY IT'S COMING VERY SOON!

I recently received a terrifying vision from the Lord regarding a brother in Christ (Terri, not real name). Now, before I share this vision, please allow me to give a background description, this particular servant of the Lord was anointed and was highly used by God and everybody including demons recognized the work of this servant of God. As it was, at the height of being tested by the Lord the brother broke faith with God and partially abandoned his work in the Lord. 

I'll allow Brother Terri to explain further, "I had a vision which not only left me worried but terrifying in every respect and I'm not ashamed to share this warning. In the vision, many other believers were also assembled before the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:9-11), when it was my turn to appear before the Lord, I did my best to avoid facing Him and the harder I tried the more tormenting it became as I felt that I did not belong there and I was afraid of what I was about to hear. It further appeared as if I was being held on both arms by two mighty angels and I knew I would not hear the Lord saying to me, 'You faithful servant enter into the rest of your Lord...' (Matthew 25:21) instead I expected to hear, "Throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness..."(Matthew 25:30). 

Finally, the vision was taken up, thus taking me out of my misery as Brother Terri continued, it took me years of submission and prayers to the Lord until I was restored again, being filled with the Holy Spirit, and I was allowed to continue with my work in the Lord (Daniel 4:24-37; Luke 22:32). As a scary thought dear brethren, I never thought that it was so difficult to regain my salvation and the Lord's grace" (Hebrews 10:26).

In conclusion, if there is anyone who abandoned the Lord and the work of the Lord, please REPENT whole-heartedly, seek the face of the Lord we surely do not have much time left before the Lord comes. We must also warn, about a month ago the Lord warned through Claudia that there will be the worst civil unrest coming to the whole world and those who continue in their lives of sin and disobedience will not escape the coming evil, we better BE PREPARED!

Blessed Grace

Beauty in Christ

 Our Glory Is Christ

“And why worry about clothes? Look how the wildflowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes as beautiful as one of these flowers (Matthew 6:28-29).

In case you may not have noticed but if a person is in Christ, He literally glows you up in other words, the Lord makes you more beautiful and giving you a “Spiritual makeover.”

Now, God has created all men in his image. (Genesis 1:27) But once you serve Christ, be “Born-again”, he doesn’t just renew you from within but outside as well. You are a new creation all-round.

This just goes to tell me that after Our Father has blessed us with the gift of Salvation, he provides for our physical wellbeing as well. That’s the God we serve! He really takes care of all our needs. You are as beautiful as a flower (Matthew 6:28-29).

His light and Love (Love is also who He is) shines through us for the Glory of Christ Jesus Our Lord.  People will and can see if you bear the good fruit of Christ and then they praise and envy you. Isn’t that beauty in Christ once again? (Psalm 139:14).

Seek beauty. Seek beauty in God. You will never have to adorn yourself with worldly ornaments if you are seeking beauty in Christ. Let us recall what the Apostle Paul said, “I also want the women to be modest and sensible about their clothes and to dress properly; not with fancy hairstyles or with gold ornaments, or pearls or expensive dresses” (1 Timothy 2:9-10 GNB).

A few weeks ago, I walked into an old family friend, Linda (not real name), and immediately when I saw her, my heart broke into pieces. She looked extremely frail, sickly, and undernourished. I could sense that her spirit was broken, and while considering her state the Holy Spirit started to minister to me saying when you do your own thing and does not follow the Lord Jesus' bad fruits will manifest and corrodes you inside out showing exactly what your spirit was feeding on. Now that’s not beauty in Christ at all!

Now as it is, our message to you is that we must first seek God’s kingdom. Become a part of the body of Christ and all peace, inner and outer beauty will become yours. There are so many fresh benefits in the Lord.

In conclusion, you should absolutely want what Christ has to offer. Just worshiping him is a beauty in itself.

 With encouraging love

The Body Of Believers As Guardians Of Society

Praying For The Well-Being Of Your Country

"Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper” (Jeremiah 29:7 NIV).

Urgent Prayer Request!

Presently, our beautiful Country, South Africa is experiencing unrest marred by violence and looting that is ravaging two major cities which have the potential of escalating and leading to widespread civil unrest and racial tensions. We humbly ask our community of Christians around the world to please intercede for our Land (2 Chronicles 7:14). 

Biblically, all Christians are implored to pray for their country and its people's (1 Timothy 2:2) well-being and the above scripture is clear that by so doing we invite the peace and prosperity of God into our communities. When we don't pray we literally allow the enemy of our souls to sow seeds of discord, confusion, and destructive behavior amongst us (Matthew 13:25). Also, we increase the severity of the sword in our nation(s) if we don't intercede (Numbers 16:46) Furthermore, the Lord Jesus Christ established prayer as one of the single most basic yet important ways of accessing the grace of God (John 15:7-8). In addition, we have also repeatedly emphasized on this platform how much God values prayer and regarding it as the key to solving all problems. 

It is a fact, Christians are not consistent in praying for their countries. In the vision the Lord gave Charis a few years ago, the Lord rebuked the people of Ukraine for not praying enough for their country (Please see vision regarding Ukraine in our visions section). Now, what does the Lord mean when He said, they are not praying enough? Well, the Lord did answer us a few years ago that when He said not enough, a person or body of believers is not praying earnestly, persistently, and consistently for an answer to the problem (Luke 18:1-8). It is true, some believers do pray for their countries but they do so casually and without any form of urgency. As it is, the Lord is teaching us in the preceding verse in Luke to pray continuously and watchfully so that we will not be denied His blessing (Luke 21:36). 

Being Consistent In Prayer  

I (Brother Glenn) have learned first-hand from the Lord that when He commanded us to pray, we need to do so without ungrudgingly and without question. A few years ago, a friend and former colleague of mine got involved in a fatal car accident. I was shown his accident in a vision before it could happen. 

As it was, he ended up in the hospital and being on life-support. I visited him in hospital and prayed for his recovery and a few weeks thereafter the Lord showed me in another vision that through my prayers, my friend would be discharged from hospital, and this came to pass and he was released from the hospital with severe mental problems and being unable to walk and the Lord promised to heal him if I would continue in prayer. 

Admittedly, as he recovered and even being able to walk I thought that he was now fine so I stopped interceding for him and forgot to mention him in prayer before the Lord. While I considered his condition as having improved remarkedly, I received a call that the gentleman passed away and immediately I felt heavily convicted and the Lord started dealing with me that I disobeyed Him for not praying consistently for my friend and as a result of such disobedience my friend died because nobody was interceding for him. This then led me to repent for days for my folly until the guilt of disobedience was lifted from me (1 Chronicle 21:8). 

How Intercessory Prayers Helped The Church And Others

In conclusion, we know that Abraham prayed and interceded for Lot and the Lord saved him (Genesis 18:16-33). Similarly, our Lord Jesus prayed for Peter and for His entire disciples so that their faith may not fail and that the gospel is being proclaimed through them (Luke 22:31-34; John 17:6-26). In the aftermath of these prayers, we have their testimony and the Bible and we owe our faith to their obedience, and shouldn't we be equally obedient by praying continually and consistently for our communities and countries?

Brethren, prayer is a form of ministry and we need to understand that the word minister simply means to 'serve'. thus as ministers of the gospel, and this includes all believers we intercede for our land, families, friends, and communities before God not just for their well-being but that it might go well with us too (1 Timothy 2:2). As a serious matter, the Lord did reveal to us that Christians who are not effective will be cut down and thrown into the fire (Matthew 7:19) and that is not just applying to so-called full-time ministers but to the entire body of believers (Matthew 25:14-30). Therefore, no believer should think that certain portions of scripture apply to certain people, we will all be judged by the Lord Jesus Christ in terms of the expectations of the scriptures (2 Corinthians 5:10). Finally, as believers make it a point of interceding daily and without fail not just for you and your immediate family but for all people everywhere including your country to avoid being a tree that does not bear fruit (1 Timothy 2:1-3).

Blessed Grace

My Departure

My Time Of Resting

“…because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me” (2 Peter 1:14).

Brethren, the Lord has revealed to my daughter Claudia quite a few times that I am to depart soon and while I’m still here I do owe this truth to you our dearly beloved brethren. This is what the Lord said, “Your father is going to rest soon” and this was first revealed on 14 May 2021 and again this morning (05 July 2021). I was reluctant to share this with you as we were still seeking the face of the Lord, but after this confirmation, I have no option but to reveal to you (Genesis 41:32). The Lord is calling me home early and while I’ll dearly miss my beloved family, I am a bond-servant of Christ and His will be done for me and my family. I do not despise the Lord’s warnings and I am sharing this by faith.

Furthermore, my work on this blog will continue, and whatever things the Lord reveals will be updated here even after I’m gone. As a further reminder, it will not be very long before the rapture and the Lord did warn us last year (2020) July that He was giving us two years to prepare and be ready for Rapture. Now, I hasten to add, we do not imply that the rapture would be happening next year July as it would be exactly two years since the warning. Additionally, like we wrote in our mark of the beast articles, the world will not recover fully economically from this virus and a new economic system for the world will emerge soon. Please pray and be ready!

Since my calling to follow the Lord back in February 1990, I enjoyed the Lord’s protection and provisions. I faced many trials, doubts, and setbacks which hindered the faith that caused me to stumble but mercifully the Lord would draw me back by His endless love. Having grown up as an only son to my parents, I longed the desire to have a ‘big' brother and the Lord filled that desire and He made me depend on Him. I am writing an honest reflection on the Lord’s grace and goodness to me, after I stumbled and sinned against the Lord during my earlier days in the faith, He would come and lift me up when I was just about to descend into a deeper fall and reminded me of His love (Psalm 40:2) and this re-assurance was the ever-presence of the Holy Spirit. Now brethren, with all humility, I’m not trying to sound like I’m bragging but I received a physical manifestation of the Holy Spirit on my head daily since my water baptism in 1991 and in Jesus name, it has never left me and this has been a reminder to me that the Lord is always with me. One thing though, I have done nothing to deserve such grace, I guess I have a deep love for God and Him I fear greatly and maybe it is by virtue of that but we know His grace just surpasses the little we bring when we are called to faith (Isaiah 42:3).

In conclusion, and in humble prayer, I beseech you all dear brethren to continue in Christ our Lord, love others and forgive, strive to please the Lord daily. Be addicted to praying and confess your mistakes often before the Lord to remain blameless, be humble, do not be ashamed of your faith but let people know you are a servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. Avoid being defensive the Lord was accused and He never pleaded His innocence (Isaiah 53:7). Please continue to pray for this family in Jesus' name, and I love you all! Finally, I’ll continue to write articles until my last days and whatever the Lord would reveal in the coming days we will share with you.

Blessed Grace
