Healingsprings fellowship’s inaugural service: Go Get Jephthah 2014!

Go Get Jephthah 2014 and beyond…

Dear friends, if you happen to be reading this write up today, you are witnessing a paradigm shift in the spiritual realm.

A power shift that would usher in a wave of revival, recovery and outreach; for Jephthah returns today to deliver God’s kingdom on earth from the hands of the oppressor.

You are part of history, and a witness to what God is about to do in Bexley, London, Kent, England; in the UK, Europe, and the world at large.

It’s the dawning of a new day, so I decree by the power of the Almighty:

Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together. I, the Lord, have created it.

~ Is 45:8 (NKJV)

In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen!!!

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom!


Spiritual Intelligence: Joy And Pain, Sunshine And Rain

“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” Says the Lord of hosts.

Good morning friends. In biblical texts most times the word messenger can be interchanged for Angel. With that in mind, let’s consider our opening verses. In these texts the writer mentions two messengers: one assigned to prepare the way, the other the messenger of the covenant. So, who are these messengers? Well, we don’t need to work too hard for answers to that question. We know through historical accounts that this prophecy was fulfilled in the persons of John the Baptist, and Jesus Christ. Isaiah also caught glimpse of this light in his time, hence he wrote:

The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert
A highway for our God.

Therefore when John was asked by his audience to locate himself in the holy writ, he pointed them to a prophetic reference from the book of Isaiah as he boldly declared: “The voice of one crying in the wilderness”. And the same John also identified Jesus as the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world .

Therefore we can conclude that these messengers were human and not angelic beings. Two people who were spoken about before they come being. Men who clearly knew their; place in time, fate in history, and path to destiny. Two pioneers that would ultimately pay with their lives for you and I to enjoy eternal life. They offered themselves as living sacrifices without flinching, even at the point of death – isn’t that something?

In closing this thought dear friends , I admonish you with words from Paul. In my humble opinion these words are arguably more relevant today than they were when written centuries ago:

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Like these two martyrs, just hold-on! Your season of pain and rain will soon be replaced with joy and sunshine!

Spiritual Intelligence: The Early And The Latter Rain

I will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.

In biblical times there were two seasons of the year in which the rain fell abundantly; the latter part of October and early November (the Hebrew month of Heshwan) came the early rain, and the latter part of March and the first part of April (the Hebrew month of Nisan), came the latter rain.

Good morning friends. Rain is vital for planet earth, as such it can be defined as the nectar of physical life. Without rain human, plant and animal life will cease to exist. In the same vain, the church ceases to exist without the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the life of God, so it provides the nutrients that we need to function effectively. In some of the last words to His very eager disciples, Jesus said;

“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”

But stay here until… He knew they will be fighting a loosing battle, He knew their cause was futile without an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The early or former rain poured as recorded by Luke in the book of acts, giving birth to the church. As we draw close to the end of the age, we will witness another great outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and this season in known as the late or latter rain. With this in mind, James presciently wrote these encouraging words to us;

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.

As we draw into a season of persecution we need the refreshing of the Holy Spirit. Just like how Peter who denied Jesus thrice for fear of his own life, suddenly received faith to stand and preach fearlessly, so also we need the Holy Spirit to be His true and faithful witnesses. Without the Holy Spirit we will make shipwreck of our calling.

In closing this morning, I leave you with words from the prophet Zechariah;

Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime, and he will answer with lightning and showers. Every field will become a lush pasture. How foolish to ask the idols for anything like that! Fortune-tellers’ predictions are all a bunch of silly lies; what comfort is there in promises that don’t come true? Judah and Israel have been led astray and wander like lost sheep; everyone attacks them, for they have no shepherd to protect them.
