Apology…

In my last  post:

https://ahouseofprayerforthenations.wordpress.com/2011/09/22/christchurch-earthquake-28th-september-2011/

 I stated that I believed categorically before the Lord that there would be a Magnitude 8 earthquake on Wednesday 28th September 2011 with epicentre to the North of Christchurch…

This has not occured…

On the basis of what I believed before the Lord I issued a warning to all inhabitants of Christchurch, the surrounding townships & settlements to flee the area on Wednesday 28th September 2011…

Although my warning was given in good faith acting on what I believed that I had heard from the Lord the event which I believed would occur has not come to pass…

I am sorry and publically apologise to all who have received my warning regarding this event which has not come to pass on Wednesday 28th September 2011 and have been caused grief and/or pain and/or loss of peace through my warning regarding the event which has not come to pass – which I believed would surely come to pass – on Wednesday 28th September 2011…

I am truly sorry for any hurt and/or grief and/or loss of peace caused you and continue to pray for us all to be covered with His Peace and that He would hold back and repel all the remaining forces of darkness from having any influence on this city in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

Especially through me…

Again, I am very sorry for giving a warning which has not come to pass – along with the associated emotions which this warning has engendered – and ask that you would please forgive me…

Father, I am sorry for giving a warning in Your Name – as a believer in Jesus Christ – which has not subsequently come to pass, please show me Lord why this has occured and enable me in Your will to never again give a warning which does not subsequently come to pass, for Your Glory Lord…

I am sorry Lord…

Thank You Lord and please minister Your Peace to all who have heeded this warning who have been hurt or grieved or lost faith in You (please don’t let this happen)…

Please let all our faith in you – those of us who believe in Your Name – remain strong in You Lord – as every word which You have spoken will surely come to pass…

I am sorry and apologise to all…

Could you please forgive me?

Love in the Lord,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew

    Hi Andrew,
    I have just read this post, and of course also read the one before it. It is very gracious of you to post this apology.
    As I read the warning post I had a thought that it had actually been given as a warning to intercessors to pray rather than as a warning to the whole city, however it had already been posted so I didn’t comment.
    Now that I am getting older 🙂 there are one or two things I’ve observed along the way. It seems to me that very often we are shown things that are for our prayer rather than for publication. It is not an indictment when something does not come to pass, it simply means that people heeded the warning and came before the Lord, who graciously answered their prayer.
    We have good biblical examples of men and women crying out to God and He does not bring the promised judgement.
    So, perhaps you were perfectly correct in what you saw and through prayer a crisis was averted – I like to think so! Maybe it was just extending beyond that in the warning that moved into the area we all struggle in, adding our own understanding rather than staying strictly with what the Lord is instructing?
    Much blessing to you.
    Judith

  2. Thanks Judith, I’m just waiting for the Lord to show me as at this point I really don’t know – I know that a number of us were praying in unity for the eight days leading up to the 28th and I believe others were praying throughout the city and surrounding areas and also some internationally, I’d like to think that the Lord heard our prayers of repentance on behalf of this city and this nation – I know they were heartfelt – and I would like to believe that He has averted this disaster – but I need to hear this from Him, If you would like to pray that I would hear from Him exactly what happened, has happened and will no longer happen then I’d really appreciate that, Love in the Lord sister, Andrew

    Ps. Thank you for the wise advice about the difference between private prayer and publication – I want to hear from the Lord more clearly in this respect – I think my problem is to so clearly know His Voice that when other voices speak to me I can see them exactly for what they are – I really feel I have an issue with this and trust the Lord to deliver me – any cause of potential “instability” in my hearing from Him – to let me only hear His Voice or if I hear other voices to know absolutely that I don’t need to listen to them – so that I am not deceived – I want them to go and not come back but I don’t know exactly how to achieve this (I will know once the Lord shows me that it’s not His Voice – I just saw that)…
