Where to from here…

I kind of feel I’ve come to a place of transition in my life…

I’ve seen things broken in me which have been major hurdles to me “moving forward” in what the Lord has for me…

I see confession and honest sharing to be vital in any relationship – any relationship which will go on in the Lord…

The confession and honest sharing need to be two-way for this to be affective…

i.e. the ones you’re being honest with need to be in that honest place before the Lord also – maybe not with you but definitely with someone and definitely with the Lord Himself (maybe there are some who don’t need to be in an honest place of sharing with anyone but not because they’re not willing to but because the Lord hasn’t provided anyone that they can be honest with at this point in time or in this season of their lives)…

When we share our hearts and let out what is within us in terms of the things which the Lord is “pinpointing” at the time we need to know that those who we are trusting to “hear us” are also going through the same process and are not somehow “armchair critics” or “locked up” somehow in a place from which they cannot “release” the Lord’s word (flowing out from) within them to meet the need of the situation in our lives as we work out James 5:16 in our lives…

I feel that this nation – New Zealand – needs to go through this process “en masse”…

Yesterday as I started to type on a “three of us” conversation (it’s just a place where we can share what is on our hearts) on Skype with two other brothers the below “came out of me” (I’ve corrected some typo’s in the reproduction below):

May the Blood of Jesus cover our conversations Lord…
Let us lift up the Name of Jesus…
We are close to a breakthrough in this nation…
I feel this…
We have all been going through a season of stripping…
I believe the Church in this nation – those who know the Lord…
And we are coming through to a time where the Lord will lift us up…
Not in arrogance or pride…
But in humility before Him and before His throne…
To pray the things which are on His Heart…
He prays continually for us…
He is the reason why we do not fall…
Without Him and His daily – moment by moment actually – intercession for us – we would certainly fall…
He is interested in us – in us knowing Him…
He does not see our sin – He sees what He has made us – and yet He sees what needs to be established in us to replace the patterns of sin which we’ve walked in – for many generations…
We are at the brink of a breakthrough in this nation and we are all integral to this breakthrough…
Everything which all of us have gone through will be meshed together for His glory – all the tears we’ve shed – all the hardships we’ve gone through – it’s all coming together for the glory of His Kingdom…
When He looks down from heaven – He doesn’t see church buildings – He sees the Church – the individuals who make up the Church – and He sees us as One…
He sees us in our unity in what He’s created in us…
He doesn’t see the flesh…
When He looks at the Unity He is wellpleased…
It is enough…
It doesn’t look good in the natural…
In it’s “organisation”…
but the individuals who make up the Church He sees as one and He sees that there is sufficient desire in us for Him to come and bring blessing to our nation…
Blessing to His Church – which is first and foremostly to bring us into unity – practical, positional, unity with each other…
I see this – to bring local expressions of this unity…
To turn our hearts towards each other…
Like the Spirit of Elijah to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children…
I see this…
This will be the first sign of revival…
That we will see New Testament gatherings of believers beginning to occur in this nation…
As these gatherings occur we will begin to see corporate expression of repentance in these New Testament gatherings…
All over New Zealand…
and as this occurs and the humility is seen – not that the Christians have “got it together” anymore and are “looking down their noses” at us – but that the Christians are in humility confessing their sins to each other and getting healing – it will then be that the world will believe that Jesus was sent by the Father…
I see this – this is the process – and there’s enough desire in the hearts of the Saints in this nation for this to occur…
I see this…
There is…
It will be messy but it will be brought about by the Holy Spirit…
The inquities of the fathers will be broken…
and there will be freedom…
Freedom which will spread throughout this nation…
I see this…
Freedom which will spread throughout this nation…
Hallelujah Lord…
He will do this…
There is nothing we can do to resist Him…
He will do this…
When He comes we will bow…
We will bow before Him…
No one will raise their head in His Presence…
He will come and we will be prostrate before Him…
Prostrate before Him…
No pride in His Presence…
No position in His Presence…
No prestige in His Presence…
We will be undone and will know that we are…
I see the repentance like a flood, like a flowing body of water spreading out around this nation…
He will come and we will repent before Him…
He is gathering us to Himself…
He is gathering us to Himself…
We need each other and only as we all operate together will He bring that which He has promised…
For this nation…
Life Forevermore…
In this context is the salvation which He offers us…
The salvation of our souls, of our spirits…
The forgiveness of sins…
The freedom to serve Him without fear…
All the days of our lives…
Without fear because we are free from the besetting sins of our forefathers…
Honesty…
Healing…
Deep rooted roots broken…
Deep rooted issues resolved…
Hidden things exposed…
Hidden things of darkness broken…
He is coming and He is going right to the root…
He will take no other answer…
There is no other answer…
He will go to the root and He will break it and He will bring deliverance…
to this nation – to those who come before Him in humility in this nation – He will bring deliverance and He will bring the humility also…
There will be deliverance in this nation and all the nations of the world will know that God has done something in the nation of New Zealand to bring back a remnant to His Name…
They will know and those who hunger for this in their nations will be drawn here to find out more…
and they will find Him – they will find Him here…
In the Spirit of Repentance which He gives…
The deep humility and emptiness of self which He gives…
That is what they will find…
And they will bow before Him for He is the Lord who inhabits heaven and earth…
In this generation…
“I will do this, in this generation”, declares the Lord

I see this occuring all over this nation at this point in time – the beginnings of it occuring all over our nation at this point in time…

This is where we need to be…

This goes with another word which the Lord gave me recently about our confession…

Our confession – of what we still are in our old selves – no excuses just calling a spade a spade – is what the Lord is looking for from us to break the iniquities of the fathers as if no one repents for these things and shares them and looks stupid sharing them and loses face sharing them then there will not be deliverance from these things and true revival can not come…

If the leadership of the Church – and by leadership I mean those who the Lord has appointed to lead (no one else may know this but these ones and the Lord but it will fairly quickly become apparent who these ones are as the Lord brings others around them who have this vision and they serve together in humility before the Lord) – will not walk in this path then there is no point for them…

That is the call which the Lord has on their lives – to go lower…

To look stupid…

To confess their sins…

Anything which is within them which is not pleasing to the Lord…

Not making excuses – no saying, “Oh, that’s just part of my flesh and I can never expect to get deliverance from that – I’ll always have these desires ‘racing through my mind’ as long as I don’t act on them I’ll be OK”…

“If I was honest about that no one would support my ministry”…

Or, “If I was to walk in this way no one would respect me anymore”…

If the leadership of the Church in this nation walk humbly before their God and admit, confess and be upfront about their sin, about their failings and about the areas where they really don’t have the victory – areas like pornography, sexual temptations, homosexual temptation, lying, cheating, stealing, fault-finding, superiority complexes, lording it over others, child abuse, paedophilia, running others to the ground, judgements – unrighteous judgements, slander, critical spirits, lack of heavenly mindedness, lack of interest in spiritual things which concern the Lord and His Glory, pride, arrogance, “smuggness”, a condescending spirit towards those outside and those inside who are “beneath them” (cover me with Your Blood Lord and give me the humility which You speak of), etc, etc, etc – then this will break this sin in them and then in the Church and then in this nation…

This is the pattern…

Sin is broken in us first and then in all the Saints around us and then in our nation – as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself…

He is calling us – those of us who He has appointed for leadership in this nation – to go lower…

It’s not about our ancestors – although they sinned too – but it’s about us confessing our sin and our transgressions and our iniquity – our besetting sin – sin which we just can’t “break” to each other – in an atmosphere of trust – and then seeing the Lord “come through” in deliverance as He honours His word in James 5:16 and also honours His word where He says, “humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up” and where He says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble”…

This is where He is calling us…

(If it’s a sin being committed in the world then it’s a sin being committed in the Church and by the leadership of the Church otherwise it would be broken)…

This is the path to deliverance…

It means that we lose our reputations…

It means that we are honest about our struggles – not to those who will condemn us – the Lord gives us wisdom in this – not in a way of “forced sharing” to a “leadership” who has not had the freedom to be freed and released themselves but before those who we – in our own free will (freed by the Holy Spirit – or at least that part of it 🙂 ) “witness” have the humility to be able to handle our honesty and know that we are a new creation who is confessing/owning the remains of our old selves in a desire to be free of it and serve the Lord effectively – without fear – without fear of being overrun by sin – which we do not want – for the rest of our lives (and even if they don’t understand us and castigate us as one who does not know the Lord at all – we will “dust ourselves off” and try again 🙂 – but I’m looking for an icon which has tears cos that’s the way it feels 😦 )…

Hallelujah Lord!!! This is what I see…

I see a number “laying down all” to die in this way and be an example – at the foot of the cross – to those coming behind that the path of the cross is a path of death – laying down our “respectibility” our “acceptance” in “high places” in the “christian world” and a desire to be nothing, to be misunderstood, to be maligned, to be criticised – to be viciously attacked by the devil and his demons through others who know the Lord but do not understand and do not know what lies within them (for the Lord has yet to open their eyes) and in this place of laying down as a sacrifice, through that sacrifice we will be purged and cleansed and come to a place where our sacrifice is accepted by the Lord and others begin to come in to freedom and we are restored in our hearts to purity before the Lord…

Then groups will form where this is the “modus operandi” and these groups will become New Testament churches…

And these churches will be real…

They will be free…

They will be free of pretension…

Pretensiousnes…

They will be free of judgement towards those who have a pure heart and want to be delivered from their sin…

They will not be afraid to speak about any topic to anyone…

Nothing will be taboo or “Oh no, you can’t talk about that”…

Whatever needs to be talked about will be talked about and there will be ones who have been delivered from every sin known to man…

The Lord will ensure this so that the delivernace will be complete in every Church in this generation…

I see this…

This nation will be filled with the Presence of God and the Holy Awe of God will fill this nation and every Church in it…

Praise You Jesus…

There will be freedom in the Church and acceptance of all our brothers and sisters in Christ – all of our brothers and sisters in Christ will be recognised in their willingness to drop their guards and be “stripped bare” in the Eyes of Him with whom they have to do – not holding on to any of the secrets of their hearts – no matter what the consequences – but coming out into the light before the Presence of Almighty God who stands before them – and He will cos He will be with us when we meet in His Name and in His Purpose to honour Him and be real with ourselves…

We will put off sin which has bound us and we will be free from the “class mentality” which exists presently in the church – the “laity versus the clergy” – this will be smashed in this generation…

It will exist no longer in this generation…

Hallelujah Praise the Lord!!!

I’m just writing what I’m seeing…

Thank You Jesus…

You are Worthy Lord…

Do what You have to do in each one of us to make this a reality in this generation – continue Your work – in the midst of the years – go deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper until everything which You have planned for this generation is established in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Thank You Lord, Thank You Father, Thank You Jesus, Thank You Lord Holy Spirit, You are Worthy, You are Worthy, You are Worthy…

We give You all the Glory for what You are about to perform in this nation and beyond in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

Hallelujah!!!

Lift up the Blood of Jesus in this nation…

Because we are under the Blood we are not condemned…

All of us who Know You – by Your Choosing and by Your Initiation…

Thank You Jesus that You never fail in any intercession which You commit Yourself to and You will not fail in this one – Thank You Jesus – You will fulfil the will of the Father in this nation and in all the nations of the world in this generation…

Far out this is beyond me (You know my heart Lord – I am incapable of any of these things which You are sharing through me – Thank You Lord that You will perform all this through me and through those who You have chosen in this generation)…

Take over Lord and do Your will in this generation and in this world…

You are Lord and You are Worthy to Reign…

We are incapable – I am incapable of doing anything which You have outlined above…

I give myself to You…

Glorify Your Name in all the earth…

Cover us with Your Blood…

We are Accepted in the Beloved – in this place let us humble ourselves and “perfect holiness in the fear – the reverence – the grateful, heartfelt reverence – of God”…

Give us this humility Lord – we don’t have it – I don’t have it – and let us walk into all that You have planned for us…

Love You Lord…

In Jesus Name…

Amen…

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
