Pain (Part 2)…

I feel to complete another post on Pain (I completed one last year but I feel I’m slightly more “advanced” in my practical understanding of this topic now than I was then 🙂 by the Grace of God 🙂 )…

I’m aware that these sort of topics aren’t really that popular but I’m not really trying to be popular anymore – people will make of me what they make of me – like Paul said, “If I was still trying to please man then I wouldn’t be a servant of Christ”…

This is true (what Paul said) and I concur… 🙂

Anyway, yesterday morning as I prepared for work in my motel room over in Brisbane, the Lord gave me a rather remarkable experience where I understood what it meant where Paul said, “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions.” (Colossians 1:24 NASB)…

We read these kind of scriptures and they just “go right over our heads” but when we actually experience them then they become real…

As you will be aware I’ve been sharing on taking “the lowest Place” offering ourselves to the Holy Spirit to intercede through us for the world that salvation would come to the world as Jesus prayed in John 17…

Through His Church…

Salvation would come to the world through His Church…

This was always His desire – even through Israel He wanted salvation to come to the world – but they kept it to themselves – even through the Church He has wanted salvation to come to the world – but we have kept it to ourselves – but now things will change – in this final generation things are about to change…

I found myself – the Holy Spirit within myself – but when I surrender to Him it becomes me – as I am one spirit with Him according to scripture when I’m living out of my new creation and He the Holy Spirit is living through my new creation I become (I am already but I practically experience becoming) one spirit with Him and I feel what He feels and I pray what He prays – that is our fellowship – the Holy Spirit and mine – that we are one – when I am surrendered to Him – He never surrenders to me but I must surrender to Him but when I do – when I line myself up under Him then I practically become one with Him in purpose and unity and I have His authority to pray whatever is on His Heart and I know that it will happen…

Anyway, as I was praying – I suddenly experienced that verse, I found myself praying that all the pain that the entire world was feeling which was holding them back – stopping them – from being able to come to Jesus – to be practically set free – that I would bear that pain for them so that they would be free to be “lifted up” to actually be able to appreciate and understand what Christ had done for them – there is so much pain that we all “live under” that we are actually blinded to the realities of just how great a Salvation we have been given…

What a great salvation we have been given – I found myself praying that for the rest of my life and right on until Christ returns to reign from Jerusalem that I would carry the pain of the world – a sister had prophesied this – that I would know the burden which Jesus had right until the end – over me – and yesterday morning I saw it come to pass…

The song I wrote – We will give our lives to the world – is coming back to mind – He gave me that song but I’ve never really practically experienced that line “and the pain He daily bears, He will never bear alone” before yesterday morning – to that “complete” extent…

I was so free of “defending myself” and trying to “ward off” pain that I just welcomed it on behalf of the world to hand it up to God and transform my soul – to sort me out also – so that they could just “focus” and “live” and fulfil the will of God for their lives…

How beautiful was that – it was priceless…

It is so Supernatural – I even found myself wishing that I might spend eternity in hell so that the entire world could be saved…

It’s just like Paul said in Romans 9…

He could wish that he was accursed – Paul was truly interceding for the Jewish race as he prayed that – the Holy Spirit in Paul was interceding for the Jewish race and in chapter 11 Paul’s intercession was complete – “All Israel shall be saved”… Hallelujah!!!

And this is the reality when the Holy Spirit intercedes through us – He gets His prize – He is not denied – because He – the Holy Spirit – has taken “the lowest Place” – in the Godhead He – the Holy Spirit – has taken “the lowest Place” – He is groaning through me now with weeping as I share this – this is His Heart – to take “the lowest Place” and give Himself on behalf of the world for their salvation – He is serving Jesus and the Father – He is glorifying Them (Jesus and the Father) – not drawing any attention to Himself – and this is what we are called to do – He will not be denied because He has taken that “lowest Place” and Jesus has also taken it and Jesus only does what He sees His Father doing so the Father also has taken it and They the Godhead are interceding on behalf of the world – that the world may be saved – “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.” (Isaiah 45:23 NASB) – when You’ve made an oath like that You’ve then got to intercede that into existence – I know the truth of what I type – I am feeling it – I feel His Passion deep within me – He has made an oath that before time is no more – He will save the entire planet – there is a time coming – before He comes again when the entire planet will worship Him – as per that other song He gave me “One Day The Lamb” – and He is interceding towards this – I feel it and I know because I have fully surrendered myself to Him – no one can tell me otherwise – I have experienced it and I feel His Pleasure as I type…

Incredible Power…

He is so Powerful…

And His Love conquers all…

O Jesus, come in Power upon Your Church – show us just how Powerful we are in You when we have completely surrendered ourselves to Your Purpose and to align ourselves with Your will…

There is no fear here – no suspicion – no self protection – just what Stephen felt as he was stoned and Jesus felt as He was crucified – nothing but love and any “abuse” which is heaped on us is gladly welcomed as it can only be used to remove the remains of “sin within us” – it cannot touch us – our new creation – which is perfect and always will be perfect – our new heart, our new spirit, our righteous soul, our delight in the Law of God, our Mind of Christ, our will to do His will – all these things which He has freely given us and the enemy cannot touch – our new creation – our “born of God” ness… 🙂

He, the enemy, cannot touch us and once we know this we are mighty in God and can offer ourselves for the salvation of the world – we can abandon it all – as Jesus did – for the sake of the call – as the song says (great song)… 🙂

I love that song, “We will abandon it all, for the sake of the call”… Praise You Jesus – and we will, we will, we will…

Welcome the pain, intercessor of God – if you’re reading this and you’re not understanding it – don’t worry – He will give you insight – if you’re reading this and your spirit is deeply moved then you know that you have a connection to Him – to His Heart and you will intercede for the world – you will offer up the “first of all” prayers on behalf of all men because our God desires all men to be saved – and more than that has sworn an oath in His Own Name that before the end of time there will be a day when every tongue alive on earth swears allegiance to Him as Lord…

Not in feigned obedience – which will occur during the millennium – but each one bowing down – each family bowing down – all over the world from their place – accepting His Salvation – this is what Jesus saw in the later part of John 17 – the fulfilment of Isaiah 45:23 – every word which God has ever spoken will surely come to pass – the enemy has done his best to blind our eyes and get us worried and bothered and pre-occupied on him and on how “scary” he is and how “scary” it all is what the kings of earth are doing but He – the Lord – sits in heaven and He laughs (Psalm 2) – because He knows the end from the beginning – the Desire of All Nations shall come – yes, right at the end there will be a falling away and the man of lawlessness will be revealed and a number of us who know the Lord will lose our lives but before this He will get His Harvest – He will get “the fullness of the Gentiles” and “all Israel shall be saved” – Paul saw it (Romans 11) because he was surrendered – Jesus saw it (John 17) because He was surrendered – Isaiah saw it (Iasiah 45) because he was surrendered – I’ve seen it because I am surrendered – not that I surrendered myself – but that He surrendered me… 🙂

I had nothing to do with this – I’ve just been shown what He’s been showing me…

So pain, we welcome the pain so that they – everyone in the whole world – can be released from that blindness which pain brings – that numbness – to be able to look up and see the salvation of God…

His Truth is so liberating – His Truth is so freeing – Do you see someone who is practically free and full of the Joy of the Lord – that is someone who is liberated by the Truth… 🙂

Even in the midst of their pain – their painful intercession before the Throne they are full of Joy – as I experienced yesterday morning as I made this surrender to take the pain of the world for the rest of my life on earth – I was full of Joy and Victory – I experienced the victory of no longer needing to protect myself but to welcome the pain, welcome the rejection, welcome the attacks, welcome the snubbing – all the things which the enemy throws at us can only affect our “sin within me” they can’t affect “us” – the true us – is our new creation – he, the devil, can’t affect me…

I am hidden in Christ…

And my pain is what is given to me by Christ to fill up what remains of His Suffering when He was upon earth – we’re not atoning for anyone’s sin – we’re just carrying their pain so they can lift their shoulders and their heads and start to “smell the roses”…

Who sees this?

Who wants this?

Another challenge – like on “the lowest Place” thread – who will submit to this for the rest of their lives?

Who will join me here – interceding for the world?

Who will love the world so much that they will lay down their life for the world as Jesus did?

I have – by the Grace of God – will you?

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

      Wherever you find them…

      “I call you this day to the lost sheep of Israel – I will go to them through you – I will establish you in your call – you have been called to the lost sheep of Israel – as I was called when I was on earth”…

      I, Andrew, see you Ruth in this “waiting mode” I see you “set apart” to wait – to stand with peace on your face, hands raised to about shoulder level in what I see and I see your face open and receiving – ready to receive – from the Lord as He pours out the oil and the wine – pours out His Presence – upon you…

      Bless you sister…

      There is much to overcome but you will overcome it all in Him – yes you will… 🙂

      I see this, I see you free – at the end of it all – at the end of the waiting – in that surrendered “serene” “hands uplifted” position – I see you free – receiving His Peace and receiving His Revelation – His Purpose – His Specific Purpose – for your life…

      Bless you sister and may God reward you for your waiting…

      Love you,

      Andrew
