Knowing God…

It’s all come down to this…

All the things I’ve been seeing over the last few months, all the things I’ve been posting, I kind of see them climaxing in the above…

Knowing God…

And this is Eternal Life… I’ve so often quoted that verse but this morning I believe I really got a glimpse as to what that really means…

Nothing else matters…

Nothing else is worth it…

He is Everything…

He really is The Pearl of Great Price…

He said to me this morning that if I was prepared to let go of knowing anything else but Him that I would be the “brainest” person in the world… 🙂

Sounds funny doesn’t it but I was thinking of Einstein who apparently used around 8% of his brain capacity and I believe Adam before the fall was using 100% of his brain capacity – Adam was a very “brainy” man because he was walking with God…

He had not tasted from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil…

He had tasted a direct relationship with the Creator of the Universe…

This is Eternal Life…

When the Lord told me this I was tempted to just immediately say, “Yes please” cos I wanted to be the “brainest person alive” so I told Him I couldn’t say “Yes” cos I’d be doing it from that motivation…

He told me to surrender to it anyway, to let go of any right to know anyone – anything about anyone – or anything – anything about anything – but only to know Him from here on out…

I surrendered to this – it was in my heart to do so – and I felt the Anointing all over me…

It was a very special moment – it was putting Him First…

It was saying, “I lay down all my rights to know anything but You”…

It’s just come to mind that this is what Paul did, the Apostle Paul said,

For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:2 NASB)

I’ve just seen that I’ve also got to yield the right to be known by others also…

I want to be known – this is a sin…

I’m sorry Lord for wanting to be known more than wanting to know You…

I’m sorry Lord and I ask You to forgive me…

I let go of being known so that I can know You…

What does this mean?

I don’t know…

All I know is that as I focus on Him – He comes in me…

I feel His Presence…

As I submit myself to Him – He comes in me, He fills me, I feel His Presence…

Come Lord Jesus, Come and take Your Place in my heart, Rule in my heart, Be Lord, Be Lord of all in my heart…

Take me and fill me with Your Presence…

Let Your Presence Consume me and make me like You…

You are the Everliving God…

You are the Same Yesterday Today and Forever…

You are Everflowing Streams of Living Water…

I feel them…

I feel the Streams…

Flowing through me…

It is All About You…

Life is All About You…

Take me Lord…

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 Technical Director - Design, 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

  1. The Knowledge of God – the Knowledge of God not about God – is so amazing…

    He truly is the only one who we need to know…

    He truly is sufficient for us…

    We are kept “even” when we are surrendered we are kept “even”…

    It seems things don’t affect us…

    I suppose that is what it is to be surrendered to the Lord…

    I suppose that’s how the ancients were able to be burnt at the stake and all those other cruel deaths that they went through and stay “even” even during their humiliation and deprivation – even during their darkest hour they hadn’t actually lost anything of any importance to them as they still had the Lord – their Knowledge of God – was still with them – He was still with them – the Fourth Man in the Firey Furnance was still with them – they had all they needed…

    He is Enough…

    I’ve said that before, He is Enough…

    No one else can “add” to Him…

    He is Enough…

    I worship You Lord that You are Enough – You are Sufficient for my needs – You are Enough – the Knowledge of God is Enough, enough for me, enough for me…

    I am content…

    I am content…

    I am content with the Knowledge of God…

    The Knowledge of God is Enough for me…

    Hallelujah!!!

    I don’t need anything else, I don’t want anything else, I want Him, He is all I want and He is Enough…

    Enough for me…

    I feel fulfilled…

    I feel full…

    I have all that I need…

    I feel it…

    I know it…

    I don’t doubt it…

    Hallelujah!!!

    Praise You Jesus…

    Praise You Lord…

    Praise You Father…

    Hallelujah!!!

    You are Faithful Lord…

    Your Word is true – when I seek You with all my heart I am found of You…

    Hallelujah!!!

    As we all will be…

    As we all will be…

    Found of You…

    I let myself go to You…

    You are my All Sufficient One…

    You are the Delight of my heart…

    Hallelujah!!!

    Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desire of your heart – I believe I’ve found mine – to know Him…

    That is the desire of my heart – to know Him – to know Him – to know Him…

    Yes, I will experience the fellowship of sharing in His Sufferings but this is knowing Him…

    There is no knowing Him without sharing in His sufferings – the fellowship of it – the fullness of it – to see Him in His Sufferings as He suffers through me – I will experience this – I am very new to this – I will experience this – and it will break me as I experience this through me…

    He will suffer through me as He intercedes for the world through me – He will intercede for the world through me and I will experience it – I will be blown away by His Love for the world – I will see it…

    That is my inheritance…

    Hallelujah Lord…

    Thank You Jesus…

    Deprivation, yes, in the natural but not in the spiritual…

    Not in the spirit (the spiritual realm) – in the Holy Spirit I shall be complete – complete in Him…

    Hallelujah!!!

    Our sin is our undoing, our sin causes needs which we cannot fill – we feel unfulfilled and thus lose the Anointing in terms of His Covering over us to do His will – this pushes us back to Him – it is His Blessing to us to show us that there is repentance needed in our lives – it is always our fault if there is death, i.e. sin, in our lives which drags us down – He is showing us this so we can repent – once we repent He will remove this death from us and we will experience His Presence…

    If we are going through a time where His Presence is not felt this is not necessarily because there is sin but if we are living in the presence of sin then it is His indication that we need to repent…

    I have experienced this…

    His Presence is enough…

    His Presence is more than enough…

    He carries us so we can live…

    Without Him we cannot live…

    We cannot escape death, i.e. sin, without Him, without His Presence…

    His Presence is enough…

    More than enough…

  2. What I’ve been seeing over the last couple of days – three I suppose – although I’ve had a bad flu and haven’t been feeling that great – is that He is enough…

    I have this cry coming out of me, sort of like when I had that other cry coming out of me, “Glorify Your Name in all the earth” and this time it’s been, “I just want to know You”…

    It seems that no matter what “comes up” or what might have distracted my attention in the past is just kind of “brushed aside” with this, “I just want to know You”…

    I felt that the Lord showed me around three days ago when I biked home from work on Wednesday evening that I’ve “got this” – this ability to cry out that sentence, “I just want to know You”, no matter what is going on and just reassert to the Lord that that is my opinion – that is my position – in terms of what is going on in my life and in terms of my life…

    That is my position…

    I just want to know Him…

    I get “other things” “rearing up” and trying to distract me but there is something “solid” birthed in me – something which the Lord has placed there earlier on this week which is solid – I know now what I want…

    I want Him…

    He is what I want…

    I do not want a ministry…

    I do not want intimacy with another human being…

    I do not want intimacy with any other created being…

    I want intimacy with the Creator Himself – intimacy in the spirit (the spiritual realm) – intimacy between my spirit and His – intimacy between my heart and His – His Heart…

    Thank You Jesus…

    Anywhere which I travel I will be seeking Him…

    Any stage upon which I stand – I will be standing with Him…

    Any trip or any venture or adventure will only be a seeking after Him, wherever He tells me to go I will go but I will go seeking Him…

    I want to know Him – what I do will not be a performance but it will be a reality – a reality of my heart seeking after Him…

    I want Him – and that is what I will seek…

    I will seek Him before thousands or I will seek Him completely alone in my own closet…

    It doesn’t matter He will enable me to seek Him no matter what the situation is or no matter what the “lights” are shining on me – wherever the “lights” are shining from He will enable me to seek Him and to know Him through that situation for that is what I am living for…

    I am no longer living for Revival…

    I am no longer living for “the call”…

    I am living to know Him…

    That is all I want…

    Other things may still entice me…

    Other things may still “trip me up”…

    But I am living to know Him…

    That is what I want and that – by His Grace – is now my focus…

    Not any of those “other things”…

    The “one thing” which is “needful” He has created in my heart – He did it not I myself – and that “one thing” is that desire to know Him…

    Thank You Jesus – You are an Infinite Desire – the Desire to Know You is Infinite and it has been birthed in me by You Yourself…

    Glorify Your Name in all the earth…

    Use me, use each and every one of Your Children – use us as we seek after You to know You and nothing else…

    Use us as the passion which it will take to turn this world back to Yourself – to remove this world to the state in which it began in the Garden of Eden where there were just two representatives for the entire human race and they were walking in complete harmony with You and with each other – come Lord Jesus and take Your Place…

    Hallelujah Lord…

    Come Lord Jesus and take Your Place…

    Let Your Anointing fall…

    And let us be saved as we trust in You…

    Come Lord Jesus and take Your Place…

    Thank You Lord…

    Amen…
