Condemnation Is The Root Cause

Romans 8:1, NASB
1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

When you have a plant with sickly leaves, it would be foolish to just treat the leaves without knowing the root cause of the problem. Similarly, when “leaves” of sickness, poverty and destructive habits start sprouting in your life, you need to know what the root cause is.

Experts will tell you that it is stress. They may go a little deeper and say that it is fear — fear of the future, of rejection, of loss, of death and so on. But is fear really the root? Or is there something deeper than fear?

The Bible shows us that the most fundamental cause of problems in our lives is condemnation. With condemnation comes fear. Fear then induces stress which brings about the symptoms of the curse.

This is what happened to Adam. Long before he faced poverty, sickness and eventually death, he had stress. Because of his sin, God told him, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground.” (Genesis 3:19) Sweat speaks of stress. But before there was stress, there was fear because Adam told God, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10)

But what made Adam fearful? Adam only feared when, seeing his nakedness, he realized that he had sinned against God. He felt so ashamed and condemned that he hid himself. God then asked him, “Who told you that you were naked?” (Genesis 3:11) There was no one else in the garden other than Adam and Eve, so we know that it was probably the devil who told Adam that he was naked.

My friend, condemnation is the root cause of the symptoms of the curse manifesting in your life. That is why you need to know that at the cross, God took all your sins, put them on Jesus and unleashed the full fury of His wrath against them until Jesus cried out, “It is finished!”

All your sins have been completely punished in the body of Christ who was condemned for you. The root cause of all your problems has been dealt with. This means that the devil cannot enforce the curse in your life apart from your receiving condemnation. So come to the place of no condemnation and no sick leaves will sprout in your life!

The Lord is saying. Look up and walk on. Do not drag your feet. Your break through is on its way. Keep walking forward on the word I have given you. It will not let you down, but it will be to you all that you dreamed it would be and more.


Healing Meetings

After holding two healing meetings at No 26. We have decided as it has been so popular that it will be a regular feature. We will hold it every month. The next date will be on the 14th December.

The Lord Speaks to each individual

We allow the Holy Spirit to speak to the group as we are silent before Him for each individual before we pray for them. We have been delighted that each member has contributed with the message they felt the Lord was giving them. Just like a jigsaw after each member shared, the picture for the particular individual emerges. The Lord is faithful and desires to speak and bring healing more than we want Him to. I have never been to a meeting like it. It is quite unique but a very wonderful way of hearing from God.

It seems the Lord is telling His people that our problem is not lack of faith but unbelief. Yeah I know.... I thought they were the same too. But it seems we only need faith as small as a mustard seed to remove a mountain, and we've got that... but unbelief is something that pulls in the opposite direction to our faith and negates it. Like two horse pulling in opposite directions... they don't get very far.

Talk about confirmation....I wrote a song called Help my unbelief, the other week. Then at the chapel Don Trahearne said that our problem is not lack of faith but unbelief and that in Africa the reason people get healed so easily is because they have not been taught unbelief like we have. The next thing ... I put on an Andrew Wommack cd and he was talking about the same thing. John Watson came to the stall and said they had been preaching it at the Baptist Church last Sunday.... I think the Lord is trying to tell us something.

Well it seems the way we get rid of unbelief is prayer and fasting and drawing close to the Lord in intimacy. I suppose its starving our senses of what they see, hear and feel. Anyway the upshot of getting rid of the unbelief is wonderful. Miracles, healings and mighty things will be seen and we will show the world that ...

Our God reigns



Help me Lord my unbelief
Help me Lord my unbelief
I choose to believe You
Yes I choose to believe
Help me Lord my unbelief

No one can thwart Your plan Oh Lord
and you've got good things for me
And you said nothing is impossible for those who will believe
Yet the way ahead looks rocky and my legs feel oh so weak
So help me Lord my unbelief

You've told me to be strong and walk and firmly plant my feet
Upon the word that cannot fail and nothing can defeat
Right now I'm needing strength oh Lord just to help me stand
When everything is shaking uphold me with your hand

You've told me that you've gone ahead and conquered every foe
And any giant I could face and Lord its true I know
Cos looking back in my life at how you saved before
Though the battles looked so big then Lord you won them all.




This is Magnificent. You'll be enthralled



Prayer Requests


I received this urgent prayer request. I would be grateful if you could keep this in your prayers.

My daughter Laura has a five year old son, Connor. Her ex-partner, Jemal, is jealous and controlling and regarded her recent boyfriend , Ned, as 'unsuitable.' WhichNed was because it turns out he had a conviction for domestic abuse some years ago. When Laura found out the truth of this she finished with Ned- that was yesterday.
Without telling her, her ex-partner, Jemal, went to my grandson's school and removed him saying he wanted to 'spend some time with him.' Laura had asked the school not to allow her ex to take him without her permission, but they did.
Now her ex is refusing to say where Connor is and he won't let Laura see him. She is distraught. Apparently , in legal eyes, possession is nine tenths of the law in these cases, so although he virtually kidnapped Connor and is tormenting Laura with this knowledge , nothing can be done until a court hearing next Tuesday. You can imagine the effect this is having on Connor and Laura. Please pray that right is done and her ex will repent of his cruel actions.

I have had a request that we pray for the people who are Albino's in Africa. There member's (arms and legs) are considered to be highly sought after by Witchdoctors who use them in their spells. Many Albino's have been killed and maimed by having their legs and arms cut off. Please pray that this terrible act will stop.

Please pray for A who is going through a terrible time with her children. They are in trouble and need great protection and guidance.


Please pray for Ann as she moves to a different part of England in her latter years. That she will find a welcome and much support and love from the people around her, and that she will not be lonely but have much to do and interest her. Pray a healing on her mind and body so she can be a great blessing to the people around her.

Please pray for the healing meetings we've begun at No. 26. That the Lord will do a mighty work on each individual and that we will learn and be built up in our faith about God's power to heal

Please pray for the stall as John is available for healing for prayer every Saturday afternoon. 1- 3. Pray that people will have the courage to come and we will see miracles

Please pray for M who needs help to fulfil what God has called her to do.

Round-The-Clock Protection
Psalm 91:5–6
5You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

During World War II, German planes bombed London. Houses were leveled. But there was one that remained standing amidst the rubble. Its owner said that when she read Psalm 121:4, which says, “Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep,” she told the Lord, “Lord, since You don’t sleep, then there is no point in both of us keeping awake. I will sleep while You keep watch.” And she did, while the Lord protected her and her house.

In 2005, terrorists attacked London’s public transport system. That day, a Singaporean girl found herself unexpectedly late for work and could not get to the train station in time to board her usual train. When she finally neared the station, she realized that it had been bombed just a few minutes earlier. Her mother, who worships in our church, believes that God protected her daughter that day.

God wants you to know that you have round-the-clock protection — “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

He protects you from “the terror by night”, which could refer to evils such as rape, kidnap or murder. He promises you protection from “the arrow that flies by day”. This could refer to bullets from a crazy sniper, drive-by shootings or home-made rockets fired into your territory.

God also shields you from “the pestilence that walks in darkness”, referring to viruses which you cannot see. You don’t have to be afraid of deadly viruses lurking somewhere or wonder if some deadly disease is developing in your body.

God also doesn’t want you to be afraid of “the destruction that lays waste at noonday”, such as a tsunami hitting the beach resort you are at, or a bomb going off in the shopping mall you are in.

You need not be afraid because God, who neither slumbers nor sleeps, is watching over you 24 hours a day!
