Taking Dominion

I saw myself hovering over the neighbourhood. Everywhere around me there were spirit beings in different colours. I felt that this was evidence that they had spiritual control over the area and that I was to take their control away from them. It is an important part of being a Son.

Ephesians 6:12 
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [a]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

One night I was woken up in the middle of the night and just couldn’t get back to sleep. Knowing that sleep is not completely necessary for our well-being I decided to use the opportunity to spend time with YHWH or perhaps doing something in the spirit, that He needed me to do.  So, I saw myself above the house where I work, hovering over the neighbourhood. 

Everywhere around me there were spirit beings in different colours.  I felt that this was evidence that they had spiritual control over the area and that I was to take their control away from them.  Not quite sure what I was supposed to do, in order to take away the control, so I simply flew at them.  It seemed to do the trick, as I flew at a being it disappeared in a puff of colour. 

I was having a really great time, realizing that this is an important part of my existence as a Son but I felt that YHWH wanted to give me something else.  I turned and saw a winged horse flying towards me, those who know me, know that I love horses.  This was a real treat, I got on his back and he flew at the coloured spirits in the same way I had and again they disappeared in puffs of colour.

Then I looked further, over London, and I asked Coeval (the horses name) to take me to Westminster and we flew over the parliament buildings, dissolving what spirit beings were hovering there at the time. I am not sure what the end result of these actions were, but I do know that they were important that night.

I have since looked up Coeval to find out more about my flying horse, it means having the same age or date of origin, so he has been around for as long as I have.  That sounds about right.

I feel that if we want to have a positive effect on the area in which we live we must spend time in the spirit taking spiritual control.  In that way the community around us will be positively affected by our presence.  I love animals and love to see wild animals in our garden.  I have noticed that when I am living a more spiritual life, I tend to see more animals than I would normally.

Today I listened to Justin’s The Age of Ascension, I found myself walking around the whole day feeling like I am only just walking on the ground – almost floating – and next thing I saw a Muntjac in our garden.  They are very shy animals and it was hiding amongst the bare branches and dead fallen leaves, well camouflaged.  In the spirit I went over to him, I put my hand on his neck and nudged him forward.  At the same time, I was speaking to him and telling him to come forward on to the grass so that he would be visible.  Slowly but surely, he moved forward, and I was able to get a picture of him.  Soon after had he come out into the open a fox also moved into the clearing. The fox was quicker, so I didn’t manage to get a photo of him.

Bending and stretching time

According to Einstein time is relative, what if we are able to change time according to our needs…

“On the day that the Lord gave the men of Israel victory over the Amorites, Joshua spoke to the Lord.  In the presence of the Israelites he said, “Sun, stand still over Gibeon; Moon, stop over Aijalon Valley.”

The sun stood still and the moon did not move until the nation had conquered its enemies. This is written in the Book of Jashar.  The sun stood still in the middle of the sky and did not go down for a whole day.”


Joshua 10:12-13

I had agreed to be at the club at 4pm, this was where our church met on Sunday afternoons. I was filling for someone else setting up tea and coffee.  I knew that they were punctual and realised that they expected me to be just as punctual, I didn’t want to let them down, especially as there was to be a guest visiting and lots of visitors were expected.  Everything was working well, we left early in order to stop at the shop on the way.  But then there was no parking available and I had to park further away from the shop than usual.  Our check out teller ran out of till paper and the manager was busy.  By the time we arrived at the car we were late.

I was very disappointed that I was going to be so very late, mostly because I was letting my friend down.  Anyway, I thought I could make up the time, maybe.  My first thought was that YHWH can control this.  I don’t have to be late, maybe there won’t be as much traffic as usual, that would be a miracle.  But it was Sunday so there was more than usual traffic.  I was watching the clock on my dashboard, it was getting close to 4 pm and we were going to be late.

Suddenly I remembered a testimony I’d heard on a podcast.  Milly said that she was running late to catch a plane, in her mind’s eye she had pictured a clock and had moved the minute hand of a clock back seven full minutes when she looked at the clock in the taxi time had gone backwards.  I have since heard incredible testimonies of people receiving articles before they were sent to them, or driving a 4-hour trip in half an hour.  But at that time, I just needed a small “time miracle”. 

I visualised a clock and, in my head, I made the minute hand go back seven minutes, I thought that would be enough time.  I looked at the dashboard and my heart sank as I saw the clock tick over another minute.  But I was not going to be deterred, I still believed that I was going to see my time miracle.  The clock on the dashboard reached 4pm.  We still had about 5km to go, and the roads to and from the beach were busy, as they always were on a Sunday afternoon. I took the turn off feeling sad that I was definitely going to be late now. All I could do was drive and hope that I wouldn’t be missed, but at the same time still trusting that somehow YHWH would give me that time miracle.  The traffic was worse than usual and I realised I should have left at least 15 minutes earlier to make it on time but when I looked at the clock on the dashboard, I was amazed, it still showed the time as 4pm. Wow!

When I arrived into the club the clock on the dashboard was still showing 4pm and when I walked into the club the clock on the wall read 4pm.  Now I was blown away!  I was on time! And when I got back into my car the clock was showing the correct time so it hadn’t stopped either.  I have since checked the distance that I travelled “outside” of time, it was 4.6km, at a reasonably busy time it should have taken 8-9 minutes, and possibly up to 15 minutes at a very busy time such as that day. 

These types of miracles happen as part of our relationship with YHWH, when we recognise our power through Him, the power that He has given us.  The power that our faith gives us, the power of our words. Speak life over your situation, speak life over your circumstances and you will see changes happen when you have faith to believe it will happen.

Moving in the Spirit

Acts 17:28 ‘For in him we live, and move and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring.’

I had been in New Zealand for 3 months when I had an email from my ex-husband.  He had had some health problems and had to go for some tests.  The tests revealed that he had masses on both kidneys and his bladder.  He wanted me to be aware so that I could be supportive for our daughter who was with me in New Zealand.

I had recently attended an online class on Traveling in the Spirit.  Because he was my ex-husband, friend and father of my daughter I was concerned for him so I decided that I should travel in the spirit and go and lay hands on him.  I thought of all his good points, what I loved about him and held him in my heart.  I asked Jesus to take me to him, it was late morning in New Zealand but what I saw was darkness and I realised I was seeing into his room in South Africa.  I could only see him so I put my hands on him and commanded health and healing over him, commanding life to come back into his body.

The following day he was due to go in for biopsies of the suspected tumours.  But when they started the process they could only find the tumour on the left kidney. The masses on the other kidney and the liver were no longer visible.  Unfortunately, this problem did require that they remove this kidney but I was celebrating because YHWH is good and my friend was healed.

It is very important that we realise that our spiritual body is capable of being places and doing things, something I do realise is that I may not have been as confident laying hands on my ex-husband had I been standing in front of him.  I am also very aware that if I had been standing in front of him and I had asked if I could lay hands on him, he more than likely would have said “no”.  In his case this was probably the only way in which I could help him.

Is GOD in control?

John 16:33  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

I recently saw “Is GOD in control?” posted on a friend’s Facebook.  I knew she had recently experienced a loss and that it was a genuine question.  I have been through this same question myself and had asked YHVH, my Papa what the answer is.

Many years ago, I was attending a home group, the leader told us that we bring sickness on ourselves by our wrong actions.  That sickness is a punishment from YHVH for sin. I think that many churches taught this and for this reason people simply accepted any sickness as their just desserts for any major or minor sin that they had committed, I have even heard people say that their sickness is a punishment for sins committed by their ancestors.  As a young Christian I believed these lies and for that reason I was terrified of doing something wrong to the extent that I would hurt my friends and family rather than anger this God who had no mercy in case He gave me cancer or some other dreaded disease or worse still punished my family or my children for sins that I’d committed.

Years later YHVH showed me a picture of my children, He asked me if I could, would I give one of my children cancer if they had done something wrong.  I know that I would never do anything to hurt my children, so the answer was and is “no, never!”.  Then He asked me how I could think that He would do anything to hurt one of His children.  He is love and His love is pure and untainted, yet I had been brainwashed into believing that He would make me sick because I had sinned; that He would cause an accident so that someone would die because they chose to walk away from Him or that a mother or child would die during child-birth, leaving a family broken and hurting because it was in His power.

At this point I have to say this is my opinion, everyone is free to agree or disagree.  This is what I have come to realise and to believe. I feel that although YHVH is able to control a person He chooses not to because He gave us free will.  YHVH did not control Lucifer and his followers when he rose up against Him, He banished them from Heaven but He didn’t try to control their behaviour.  Nor did He stop Adam from eating the forbidden fruit.  YHVH knew that these things were going to happen and what the result would be but did not prevent them from happening, instead He prepared a way in which these wrong choices could be resolved, in the form of Yeshua’s sacrifice.

John 10:10 reads “The thief [enemy / Satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I [Yeshua] have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” Satan steals from us; he kills our loved-ones and destroys our marriages, lives and belongings.  Yeshua does not tell us that life will be easy, He tells us that we will have troubles.  But our troubles are not brought upon us by YHVH in wrath but rather because our enemy has used our wrong choice or behaviour against us to cause us harm.  Or it may even be that we are walking closely with YHVH when the trouble came, there is nothing to stop the enemy from attacking us.

I wish I could say that there was a formula or ritual that we could perform that would result in the protection of ourselves and our loved ones but there is not. What I do understand is that when we are in close relationship with YHVH we learn to trust Him completely and it is our Faith in Him which brings blessings to us.  I also feel that if we asked YHVH where He was when the trouble came to you, you will see that He held you in His arms and that He was wiping your tears from your face.

After I had completed and posted this blog a friend of mine pointed out that we don’t know why things happen the way they do.  For example, in Genesis, after every plague the Egyptian Pharaoh would say the Israelites could leave Egypt then YHVY hardened his heart and he changed his mind, but in the end it was because of what the Egyptians had experienced that they handed over their gold and jewelry to the Israelites when they were about to leave, and YHVH’s glory was revealed when He opened the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross.  Another example is when Job was tested by Satan, but Satan was granted permission by YHVH, through this testing Job showed his faithfulness.  So why do bad things happen? I don’t know.  If we are walking closely with YHVH are we protected? We are protected in that He knows the future and can prevent us from making wrong choices if we obey Him, however, if it is part of His plan for our life to go through an experience, we may experience hardship in order to learn something.  Is God in control? He does not control our choices or those of others.

Weather Changers

Matthew 8:23-27 “Yeshua got into a boat, and his disciples went with him.  Suddenly a fierce storm hit the lake, and the boat was in danger of sinking.  But Jesus was asleep.  The disciples went to him and woke him up.  “Save us, Lord!” they said. “We are about to die!”

“Why are you so frightened?” Yeshua answered.  “How little faith you have!” Then he got up and ordered the winds and the waves to stop, and there was a great calm.

Everyone was amazed.  “What kind of man is this?” they said.  “Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

When Yeshua left this realm and went to be with Yahweh He told us that we would be doing greater things than He did.  For this reason, we should be aware that it is our responsibility to control and change extreme weather or even just changing forecasts of perpetual rain to a sunny spell now and then for that children’s birthday party or the family outing, don’t pray about it, go out and do it.

I recently went to a conference, I learned so much more than I expected.  I have sat under Justin’s teachings more than anyone else.  And this particular conference was at a church who had never heard him before.  I was mistakenly under the impression that I would be re-experiencing previous conferences.  But it was so different in so many ways.

Supercell thunderstorm (DI00701)

Firstly, from the time I arrived in the area it had snowed, I do like snow but not when I am about to fly out of an airport, it is snowing, and the visibility is virtually nil.  At one point in the conference it started really coming down, I mentioned the weather to my neighbour and noticed, immediately, that Justin, who was sitting in front of me and had heard my comment, focused his attention elsewhere.  The snow slowed and then stopped, when I arrived at the airport the sun was shining.  Jesus spoke to the weather it changed, how much more should we be doing.

Yes, I know this is supposed to be a blog about the simplicity of doing it… a week before the conference I thought I should do some sight-seeing… I woke up to a partly cloudy day but by the time I’d had breakfast it was drizzling, that’s Northern Ireland for you.  But I know that we have the power to achieve anything, besides it was only a little bit of water.  So off I drove to the bird hide to watch the birds at the beach.  By the time I arrived at the site it was bucketing down, the owners of the only other car in the parking lot came running back to their car, climbing in quickly to get out of the rain.  I was not going to be put off but neither did I really want to get that wet.  So, in the spirit, I went above the clouds and spoke to the weather, commanded the clouds to leave and the sun to come out.  I waited for a while, the pouring rain abated, then stopped completely, the sun came out, I was so excited.  The rest of the day the weather was partly cloudy, mostly sunny, the sight-seeing was great and I arrived home with a bit of sun burn.

Back to the conference. In my blog “what’s in a name” I shared what Dad calls me.  And my curiosity as to what it all meant.  What Justin did say at the conference was that Dad calls us a particular name because that is our function.  What Dad has said about us is what we are to do.  Dad wasn’t just telling me that what I speak in Heaven will occur on Earth He was giving me a mandate to hear His Heart in a particular situation and then to speak His Desires into being on Earth in that situation.  All the more reason for us to seek Dad for His name for us and what our mandate is on Earth…

Very important, at the conference, Justin taught on the Father’s presence, how to get there, go there as little children, just love on Him and let Him love on you.  Don’t try to get into His Presence, this is a mistake, just sitting with him will take you there.  O and don’t forget to focus on your joy.  It is in joy that we achieve everything. Joy is our strength.

Blessing upon blessing

The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like, when we are grateful for what we already have we will naturally attract more for which we can be grateful.

Isaiah 44:3  For  I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground:  I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

The other day something happened that just reminded me of how blessed I am.  How often I see miracles but don’t recognise them as the miracles they are, just accepting them as good fortune but seldom recognising them as blessings from Dad, which is exactly what they are.

I don’t mean a parking at the grocery store when I ask for it, which, of course, it is.  But something so much more real.  Being in the right place at the right time, or knowing someone who knows someone.  Some years back I needed a home for myself and my family, my husband had left and I had just got a job but the salary was only just the minimum wage.  I looked at a few houses, the rents of which were less than my salary, there were not too many, but they were all snatched up very quickly.  I ended up moving to my sister’s house in desperation, this was 45 km away from where I worked.  The evening after I had moved in with my sister, I received a call from a friend who knew someone who knew of a house right in the area where I worked.

The following evening, I went to meet the owner and see the house.  We agreed on a rent that I could just manage, he dropped his expectations for rent because we had to make sacrifices.  This house may not have been perfect but it was home for 7 years.  The rent was only increased once in our entire stay there, although my income increased and improved while we lived there.

Then, my car was stolen and I had to replace it.  I looked around, I was taken to see a Renault, low mileage, but they wanted much more than I could afford in cash and I couldn’t see a way of getting a loan for that amount of money.  I gave up that idea, feeling very sad.  Three days later my friend called me and told me that he’d found a car for me, sending me pictures of the car, including the mileage, it was the same as the Renault but this was an Opel.  Because it was at a dealership my sister was able to arrange finance for it in her name. Upon reflection I know that my Daddy was looking out for me.  That Opel was amazing, in all the time I drove that car I only had to make two repairs to the engine and neither of them was expensive, in fact, my mechanic was able to manufacture the parts at a fraction of the cost of the original parts I would have needed.  I wouldn’t have been able to do that with the Renault.

More recently my daughter needed transport, she was having to get an Uber to and from work, the cost of which I couldn’t imagine.  Before I left South Africa, I gave her the money to buy a scooter to get around on, but because of various circumstances she was unable to buy the one at which she’d been looking.  Then suddenly there were no scooters, this was very frustrating.  One day she said that her friend was going to look at one nearby for her.  That same day she paid for it and they brought it home.  Her friend then messaged me and told me that the seller had had two offers for that scooter that day, but that he’d “felt” that the scooter was to go to my daughter.  How can we ever imagine that anyone else would have given someone that “feeling”?  And just to confirm, the scooter cost R 100 less than the amount I had given her.  And just to top it all, the mileage on that scooter was just 900 km.

So, I feel that if we look for the blessings we will see them.  And when we see something we really want but we are unable to make things work so that we can have it, then let it go, Our Dad has something so much better for us and it will be better for us in every way, it is just a matter of trusting Our Father to have the best for us.

The most important thing is the “attitude of gratitude”.  Yes, I did just say that.  Our thankfulness for the small blessings we have already received is what takes us to places of greater blessing.  If the secular world of life coaching can pick up on this and thank the …” universe” … for their blessings, shouldn’t we be even more thankful for our blessings, because we know from where they come.  So, I thought I’d summarise and share Jack Canfield’s teaching on gratitude.  He says that when we cultivate gratitude we are able to feel true joy and contentment, no matter what we have or don’t have.  The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like, when we are grateful for what we already have we will naturally attract more for which we can be grateful.

  • Every day, take time to note all the things you appreciate in your life
  • Everyday, make an effort to appreciate at least 3 people and let them know
  • Look for good in every situation, every cloud has a silver lining
  • Carry a physical token of your gratitude in your pocket, in the same way men of old set up altars, not so that we will worship the token but that it will remind us of how blessed we are.
  • Remember the smallest blessing, do we eat three times a day, there millions of people who hope to eat once a day
  • Appreciate yourself, remember how much YHWH loves you and that He appreciates you

Let us always be thankful

Our Future, Our Scroll

If our dreams don’t scare us, they are not big enough

“I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”  Jeremiah 29:11

white morepork

The white Morepork

I very seldom remember my dreams, but when I do I know that they usually are prophetic, this one was no different.  I dreamt that I was sitting on wide veranda (like the ones they have on the old houses, in Cape Town, South Africa, that have now been converted into businesses), it was dark.  Suddenly a white Morepork flew out of the door of the house, past me into the night but then came back and sat on a branch of a tree standing next to the house, almost waiting for me to follow it.  A Morepork is the owl found in New Zealand, they are usually brown so the white one is very unusual, said to be a good omen by the Maoris.  Then I looked next to me on the couch on which I was sitting and there was an eagle owl. I have a friend who has 3 disabled eagle owls so they are almost like pets to me.  I was sure that it was something to do with ministry, the plans that Yahweh has for my life, I felt like He was saying you can stay with what you know, the safe option or you can go with the different, the exotic.

I feel that there is a plan on everyone’s life, almost from the day that I first committed my life I felt the tug of doing more than just going to church, meetings and general church life but I was unable to get proper direction.  I still feel like a rudderless boat being tossed about on the waves, without an actual plan.  But with every decision I make I pray that YHWH will guide me, that He will be the one to open doors He wants me to go through, and He will close the doors that are wrong for me, that He will control the timing of an incident and that He will always confirm for me through prophetic words of others what He wants me to do.  Even if I can’t “see” exactly what YHWH has planned for me I trust that He will guide me by other means.

YHWH says, in Jeremiah 29:11, that He has an expected “end” for us.  Now I can’t speak for anyone else but I want to be who and what He wants me to be, and to do what He wants me to do and most of all, achieve what He expects me to achieve.  My goal must be His goal for me, it must be what I agreed to achieve before I was born as a child on this Earth.  When people choose to leave us, it may be that they are wrong for us or will get in the way of us achieving our goal, regardless of how much we love them or they love us, or we may get in the way of them achieving their goal.  I often hear teachers say that if our goals / dreams don’t frighten us then they are not big enough.  I agree, but I also think that it is better to be taking “baby steps” than not making any moves at all, those “baby steps” will more than likely bring us into contact with people who will create a platform for us to achieve those dreams.

The most important thing we have to remember when we are given a word that appears to be too much, is that YHWH is outside of time, He looks beyond the circumstances that we are in at the moment and shares, through others, what He sees of us and our future.  Don’t reject a word because it seems impossible. If that is what you want for your life claim it, hold on to it, have faith that it will come to pass, don’t look at what you are experiencing now. YHWH won’t drop you He will carry you to the end, trust Him to get you to that future.  So, no more telling YHWH about the mountains in your life, tell that mountain about your future, spiritually step into it, every day, until it becomes real for you and you will achieve it.
