Whose righteousness…

Whose righteousness protects our family?  God’s or mine?

Whose blood protects our family?  God’s or mine?

God’s…

Being under the Blood means that you stand helpless and completely undone in the Presence of God claiming His Righteousness alone…

Not your own…

Claiming His Blood alone, not your own…

So why return to any effort to protect your loved ones by any righteousness of your own?

If you are a wife are you protected by your husband’s righteousness?

Or if you are a child are you protected by your father’s righteousness?

Here is the truth…

If you as a father are surrendered to the Lord – in the sense that you are under His Blood – not trying to improve yourself but trusting in His Blood – whatever is under the Blood attracts the Fire of God – but trying hard and pride do not attract the Fire of God – not trying at all and waiting on the Lord knowing your positional righteousness before Him do – then all under your responsibility – your household – are also under the Blood…

Of course they can rebel against this and strive and return to folly – pride…

But you have done your job…

If your flesh expresses itself in front of your family have you lost your authority?

No, nothing has changed – you are still under the Blood and so are they – they have nothing to worry about – if they do get worried and return to pride – to striving – then this is not your responsibility…

You are to stay under the Blood…

There is no expectation under the Blood…

And there is healing and there is burning – things leave and they leave naturally – and you can wait for God’s timing and wait for God’s timing in your family members…

This is the way it is to be…

The role of authority in this world is to welcome the Blood into their area of jurisdiction – their sphere of influence…

This is what the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors & Teachers – along with the Intercessors – are to do – welcome the Blood to have jurisdiction in their spheres of influence…

I see this – it is powerful…

There is no condemnation here – no judgement – no judgement in the Lord…

There is understanding and wisdom – seeing where everyone ‘is’ and where the Lord is taking them…

Patience…

And discipline where necessary – all is in the wisdom of God – but there is no condemnation…

There is freedom and there is no need to strive or worry anymore…

The authority is given by God – not on the basis of performance – but on the basis of the way God has made us and the roles He wants us to fulfil…

The authority isn’t given to force anyone to do anything – it is given to be released into the sphere of influence – releasing the Lord to have His Place – either He is in control or we are…

When we ‘stand still and see the salvation of the Lord’ or ‘be still and know that He is God’ – He is then freed to do His will in our lives…

He has told me there is nothing for me to do – he who has put his trust in the Lord has ceased from his work – I am to wait for Him to move in me – it is so free – so free – and He is so able to transform me – so able…

Love You Lord…

Love You Lord…

Love You Lord…

You don’t fall out of grace…

It is a conscious choice to be under grace…

It is also a conscious choice to be under Law…

To be under Law you have to strive…

To be under grace you just have to stop trying and live with the results (there will be a flood of fear as you make this decision but this is just natural – go with it)…

Which will you choose?

There is peace and freedom in grace…

And a flow of living waters coming out from your inmost being – you stand and you wait – this is weird – it feels weird – but it is so blessed – so blessed (let the other stuff be flushed out of you)…

Love you,

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 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
