Without A Vision…

I suppose I’ve been thinking about this for awhile, “Without a vision the people perish” and I suppose I’ve had enough life experience now to say that I’ve experienced this in my own life…

I suppose after being at a Better by Design Conference recently and having some international speakers speaking to us about design and about corporate success I suppose I understand even better that in all walks of life this holds true…

It holds true in the spiritual in much the same way it holds true in the physical…

I suppose it’s time for me to put out my vision – I’m 40 years old (will be 41 years old – Lord willing – later on this year) and I feel that it is time for me to state what I believe the Lord has told me about the future of this generation and be “upfront” about what I’m “living for”…

I might not be right in everything which I’m going to record (we know in part and we prophesy in part – I am not claiming infallibility) but I’m recording it for myself – to look back on in a few years time – and I’m also recording it for all who will ever read it – who will be drawn to it by the Lord to read it – so that they can have their input and add their insight into what I have shared in the hope that we will all together get a complete picture of what the Lord is going to accomplish in our generation…

If there are things which are wrong with what I’m seeing – please let me know – cover us all with Your Truth Lord (and with Your Blood) so that we can see Your Truth…

For a number of years now – it started in my early 20’s – I have had a strong sense that the Lord is going to bring Revival to New Zealand…

I have had a growing sense over the years that this nation will be a missionary sending nation and that this nation will live in the opposite of poverty – not in oppulent wealth but in a state where each one has “sufficient” to do whatever the Lord tells them to do…

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; (2 Corinthians 9:8 NASB)

There will be a redistribution of wealth amongst the people of this nation following the Revival which will occur meaning that each and every one will have “sufficient” to do all that the Lord calls them to do…

I have seen that the Lord will Save this nation…

I am not “double-speaking” here – I will be quite clear – I have seen that this entire nation – there will come a time before the great and terrible day of the Lord – when this entire nation Knows the Lord – this entire nation will be Saved…

Every single member of this nation…

Saved in the Blood of Jesus Christ…

The Anointing of God for Salvation is upon this nation…

I’m not talking about anything other than “the real deal” – the Lord giving each and every person alive in this nation a new heart and a new spirit, the gift of repentance and the gift of faith and enabling them to give themselves to Him and then filling them with His Holy Spirit and enabling them to sacrifice themselves to Him and be Baptised with His Holy Spirit and with Fire, Baptised with water and living for His Glory…

I am not talking about anything other than biblical Salvation by Grace through Faith as a Gift of God…

I believe this will happen in this nation in this generation…

I would be more clear…

I believe this will happen in this nation within the next 40 years (I’m saying 40 years here because this is what I believe I’ve heard from the Lord a number of times – He might be being “figurative” with this 40 years but I don’t believe He is cos I’ve asked for longer in terms of years and He’s said “No, 40 years”)…

The 40 years might not be up to the very day but then it might be – I really don’t know – I’ve just got “40 years” a number of times when I’ve prayed about this…

There is an event to occur in this nation in the city of Christchurch and after this event occurs I believe we have 40 years (maybe not exactly to the day) of the Favour of God where this nation and the nations of the world will turn to Him…

This nation will be used as a missionary sending nation to the other nations of the world…

During that time more and more and more and more people from all around the world will be Saved until there will be a time near the conclusion of that 40 years (maybe not exactly to the day) when the whole world will worship the Lord together – in spirit and in truth –

All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, And all the families of the nations will worship before You. (Psalm 22:27 NASB)

For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14 NASB)

I believe that the nation of Israel will also be Saved during that time…

I believe that the Salvation of the nation of Israel during that time will be the catalyst of the Salvation of the rest of the nations of the world…

I have seen everyone in the whole world worshipping the Lord together in their various nations in unity…

At one time worshipping the Lord throughout the entire world…

I have seen this…

I have seen this a number of times in the spirit (the spiritual realm)…

All I know is that the gifts are going to be released by the Lord like never before on His Church and that the Church will – in this generation – become One in the way which He always intended…

In the way in which He prayed in John 17…

We will see this in our generation…

We will also see the restoration of true Godly Leadership – Leadership from “underneath” – true “servant leadership” – in the form of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor & Teacher working together with the Body to Perfect the Body and the Worship of the Body on earth so that the Body can be a testimony to the spiritual realm as Paul says…

so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 3:10 NASB)

We will see the perfection – the “coming of age” – the maturity of the Church – the Body will be complete in our generation…

This is what I’ve seen…

I’ve seen those with those giftings, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor & Teacher, giving and giving and giving and imparting and imparting and imparting to everyone on the planet until all have those giftings and the Body is complete – like Moses said,

“Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD’S people were prophets, that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!” (Numbers 11:29 NASB)

and He will in this chosen generation…

I’ve seen this as I’ve prayed, that the Lord is wanting us all to be “the greatest” by becoming “the servant of all” – to give to everyone else all the things which He’s given to us and more and even to give them our call – to hold nothing back – but to want the very best for them whether they be saints or satanists or whatever else inbetween – to wish Salvation upon them and the greatest possible usefulness upon them for the Kingdom of God…

I’ve seen this and know that it will become commonplace in our generation (the next 40 years or so)…

There is so much work to do but the Lord has already commenced by appointing Intercessors all around the world who are beginning to pray – to pray this into existance…

I know they exist – I know this in the spirit (the spiritual realm) – I know that they exist and that they are watching and praying and that they will not “give Him any rest” until He makes His Name a Praise in all the earth…

They will exist – they have existed – and they are praying – those who have been released are praying…

Others have seen this before – the Lord is just showing me this as I type – I am not alone…

“Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance. They will say of Me, ‘Only in the LORD are righteousness and strength.’ Men will come to Him, And all who were angry at Him will be put to shame.” (Isaiah 45:22-24 NASB)

There will be destruction during this period on earth…

There will be desolations…

Come, behold the works of the LORD, Who has wrought desolations in the earth. He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots with fire. “Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:8-10 NASB)

But there will be Salvation…

The LORD will be terrifying to them, for He will starve all the gods of the earth; and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from his own place. (Zephaniah 2:11 NASB)

Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke. According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:15-19 KJV)

But over it all I believe it will be a time of Salvation where the gods of the earth will be starved…

The LORD will be terrifying to them, for He will starve all the gods of the earth; and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from his own place. (Zephaniah 2:11 NASB)

I have seen this in prayer – there will be no place for them for the gates of hell truly will not prevail against the Church in this generation…

The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8b NASB)

Yes, I know after this generation “the end will come” and the Church will be removed from the earth and then – and only then – will the “man of lawlessness” be revealed in the “time of Jacob’s Trouble” – yes, I know then that the people who come to know the Lord at that time will be overcome, physically (but not in the spirit), by him (the “man of lawlessness”) as, just as in Jesus’ day, “this hour and the power of darkness are yours” will be true at that time – but this is not “that day” today, in this generation…

We, the Church of the Living God are still on earth…

Nothing can stop us fulfilling our destiny which Jesus prayed for in John 17…

“that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:21-23 NASB)

I get very emotional when I read those Words from Jesus – He had so much Heart and so much Passion as He uttered those Words…

They will take place before He comes again to Reign…

waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET. (Hebrews 10:13 NASB)

When we are removed from the earth the “man of lawlessness” will be released…

We were told by the Lord to,

“Occupy till I come.” (Luke 19:13b KJV)

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 NASB)

We were also told that the Lord would be receiving a Bride…

that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. (Ephesians 5:27 NASB)

I just know that this will be the case…

Not only in the spirit but also in the natural – He will present Himself a Pure Bride…

The Church will leave earth “on a high note”… 🙂

 “when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8b NASB)

They will meet Him in the clouds and when He returns to earth – to the Mount of Olives – some time later, they will be with Him…

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, (Jude 1:14 NASB)

And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. (Revelation 19:14 NASB)

It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. (Revelation 19:8 NASB)

We have a future with the Lord – those who come after us – after we have been “removed” to heaven – will have a very torrid time with the “man of lawlessness” – they are our brothers and sisters in the Lord from the nation of Israel who will be saved during that time (there may be others, I’m not sure but I don’t think so) – they will almost without exception lose their lives for the sake of Jesus and His Testimony…

We are all “saints by calling” those of us who know the Lord Jesus Christ but what a priviledge for us in this generation to see the fulfilment of His Mandate for His Church – to reach that fullness of the stature which Paul described in scripture under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit…

until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:13 NASB)

So where does this leave us?

Where it leaves me is giving myself to the Lord for Him to remove sin from me…

Giving myself to the Lord for Him to establish Righteousness in me…

Why?

Because whatever He establishes in me I can pray into every other saint on the face of this earth…

This is His will for us – that we share every good thing which He gives us with our brothers and sisters…

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” (Matthew 10:8 NASB)

Hallelujah Father…

Thank You Jesus, Thank You Lord…

Raise up a Standard – a Standard to Your Own Name…

LORD, I have heard the report about You and I fear. O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years, In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy. (Habakkuk 3:2 NASB)

Let the latter rain fall…

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. (James 5:7 KJV)

What does this mean for us?

Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, (2 Peter 3:11-15 NASB)

“So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.” (Hosea 6:3 NASB)

I believe very much that the “Vision of the Body of Christ and the End-Time Ministries” (http://crash.ihug.co.nz/~revival/hicks.html) which Tommy Hicks had will come to pass in this generation also and believe that what he saw was “a lot of the same” as what I’ve seen (and the “knowing” which the Holy Spirit has given me) – I’m not putting this very well 🙂 – but very different also  but very “the same” in the spirit of it – I have a real witness in my spirit to the vision which he had – I know that this will come about…

So what does it mean?

Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6 NASB)

We sit back and wait for the Lord – we wait in silence before the Lord and as He raises us up to speak, we speak for His Glory…

We have a vision, we thus have motivation – if that vision is from the Lord He will add His Motivation to it – and as we wait upon the Lord we gain new strength…

We see and we wait…

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 KJV)

And we act as we are raised up by the Lord to act…

We do nothing of our own initiative but as He rises up within us we rise up and fulfil His will…

This is the nature of faith and we will walk in it (Thanks to You Lord – to God be the Glory – Glorify Your Name in all the earth – protect us from pride of every variety Lord, keep us humble and “low” before You – You are Worthy Alone)…

Thank You Jesus, Thank You Lord, Thank You Father, Thank You Holy Spirit…

Establish everything in us Father that is necessary for the fulfilment of Your will for this generation (especially humility, deep humility Lord)…

It is done, I sense it done in the spirit (the spiritual realm) but there is so much more that needs to be done by so many (by all of us Lord who know You – in humility before You as You Lead us – give us this Lord all of us in the Mighty Name of Jesus – lift us up that we might serve You – Thank You Lord – it is done – in deep humility it is done and will be done in deep humility – Thank You Lord – all the way in deep humility, deep brokenness before You, we will do it as You Lead us – Thank You Lord – give us Your Peace that it is done – every step of the way give us Your Peace that it is done – it is finished as You said on the cross – it is finished – Thank You Lord – You finished it all on the cross now we see it “working out” in the physical realm – Praise You Jesus – cover us all with Your Blood) in the physical realm and in the spiritual realm as the battles are fought and won “on the ground”…

Thank You Lord for Your Victory…

Thank You that Your Victory goes with us…

I have to say that the Worship which we will experience towards the Father and towards the Lord Jesus Christ and towards the Holy Spirit of God will be “from heaven above” – literally – I don’t believe there will have ever been Worship like we are going to experience to the Lord in this generation – He will give us a new song, many new songs, many, many, many new songs in all different languages and styles He will give us a new song which will be heard in many different strains around the world – to the Praise of His Glorious Name…

We do not fight against flesh and blood but against the forces of wickedness in the spiritual realm – where You have the Victory…

You are Victorious Lord…

You are Victorious…

Thank You for Your Salvation…

Bless us all with Your Presence and let us know Your Peace…

You are an Awesome God and Your Name is the Lord…

That’s all I feel to share at this point in time…

Love You Lord…

You are my God…

I worship You…

Come in Your Fullness in Your People on earth at this point in time and at this point of our planet’s history in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

Fulfil Your Will, Strengthen Your Church, Empower us to proclaim the Word which You give us in the Mighty Name of Jesus – to finish every assignment which You set us in this generation for the Praise of Your Glory…

Hallelujah Lord…

Be Glorified…

Be Glorified…

Be Glorified…

Thank You Jesus, Thank You Father, Thank You Lord, Thank You Lord Holy Spirit…

To God be the Glory in this generation and let the Church lift Her head and Praise Your Name – I see Praise, I see Praise – Praise from the heart – pure Praise…

Pure praise – Thank You Jesus…

Thank You 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 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
