“To overcome a fear, here's all you have to do: realize the fear is there, and do the action you fear anyway.”

“Fear is something to be moved through, not something to be turned from.”

Peter McWilliams quotes


The Lord is saying.   Your faith has been shaken, but I say again ALL IS WELL. When there is a choice between believing me and 'evidences' , put your whole heart into trusting my word to you . Time will show that you have heard me right. This time of having the choice placed before you is good for your growth, good for your strengthening, good for your future. Stand therefore on the word I have given you, and prove my word in your life.


Heavenly encounters

Sometimes in my prayer time, the Lord takes me in the spirit to meet Old and New Testament characters. This started happening round about 2005. These encounters always leave me strengthened and more enlightened about God's will for my life. It appears to me that the body of Christ who have gone before us, take great interest in our progress and our victories on this earth....after all we are continuing to build upon their work. As it is written, "we are encompassed about by a great cloud of witnesses. To pass on their wisdom is of great delight to the saints who have gone before. The choice of when the Lord takes me on these adventures and who He takes me to is entirely dependant on Him and I assume its because of the lessons that I am learning at the time. For example he would frequently take me to Abraham when I was learning about righteousness by faith. David helped me when in battle or in a persecuted situation where I should have acted humbly.


Recently the Lord took me to meet Noah for the very first time. I was very shy and reticent about this encounter, but quickly the scriptures were being opened up to me in such a remarkable way as I conversed with him. The lesson I learnt I recount in the last update, omitting about the encounter with Noah as I have always felt reluctant to share on this, but now I feel to be obedient I must 'come out' as it could be upbuilding to others if I did. One of my reasons for my reluctance was fear that people would equate this with 'speaking to the dead'. Contacting the dead through mediums is an absolute 'no no' for me as I understand how damaging and how much against God's word this practise is. However my encounters are always with Jesus present and by His initiation and to be honest I believe if anyone was to accuse me of necromancy than they would have to accuse Jesus of the same because he spoke to Elijah and Moses on the Mount of Transfiguration.

An excerpt from my Encounter with Noah

''Noah told me that when he lived on this earth things were so very different. Life was so much more simple then, with basic things to work with. Now the choices are so many. Yet he told me that as he was chosen for such a time to build the ark, so I was chosen for such a time as this. I felt it was difficult to assimilate this because of the circumstances in which I live, and the way I am.

He asked me if I believed that he had been chosen. I said "Yes with all my heart". I believed that he had been chosen to build an ark and to save his family and the future human race and the animals. I said to him "But you had one single goal and worked at it for a hundred (120 actually) years... I've got billions of goals and don't know where to start". He said to me just as I believe that he was chosen and born for such a time as that and just as I believe that God's will was preordained and certain to come about... so I must believe the same for me. I wanted to know a scripture that would qualify this. I knew it was John 15.... I have chosen you and ordained you to bear much fruit. "Yes", said Noah "But now you have to believe it despite everything. To stand on it like you have stood before on God's promises." I chose to believe it. To stand on this truth. I am chosen for such a time as this and God's plan cannot be thwarted. What I was born to do... I will do... not because of my determination, wisdom, strength, single mindedness... Yes, despite the lack of it... despite the confusion... despite what people speak or think about me.... God's purpose for my life will come to pass.'

Adventures in India

Hindu lady rubbed the spot from her head.....

Wednesday December 16th 2009

Joshua took us to a house up some steep concrete steps. At the top piles of shoes indicated we were to take off ours. We went into a darkened room with rows of people waiting eagerly for the word. The word that morning was that it was so important that when the seed of the word was planted that satan did not use offence to steal the word from the heart of the hearer. That when we are tempted to react negatively but we stay in the spirit, we find that we have gained ground instead of losing it to the enemy of our souls, and we are in a better position to minister to other people.

Because there were the new believers in the congregation that we had picked up at the fruit stall. it was particularly important for these babes in Christ to know to keep the word that had been spoken about the gospel. I was told afterwards how they had rubbed the spot from their forehead that morning. We ministered to them extensively in prayer. In every meeting we were inundated with requests for prayer.

As we were leaving a young woman came up and told us we were going to her house that evening.


Later that night we were taken on the church bus round the streets praying on our way to pray to a house that had been cursed. Joshua had been ministering to this family and they had found a voodoo doll under the house. Apparently the perpetrator of this deed had some argument with the family. We entered the house by a corrider lined with chairs down one side. We sat there and children and adults sat on the floor at our feet. As we praised that night we heard the mother of the young woman who owned the house wailing with the demons that had been attacking her because of the voodoo. We prayed for her and the sick, cursed and hurting. Later we anointed the place with oil, breaking the curses. Never before in England have I seen the reality of the power of witchcraft. But then the people are hungry for Jesus because of their experience of the evil side of spirituality.

Just Joking...

At a Wednesday evening church meeting a very wealthy man rose to give his testimony.

"I'm a millionaire," he said, "and I attribute it all to the rich blessings of God in my life. I can still remember the turning point in my faith, like it was yesterday:

I had just earned my first dollar and I went to a church meeting that night. The speaker was a missionary who told about his work. I knew that I only had a dollar bill and had to either give it all to God's work or nothing at all. So at that moment I decided to give my whole dollar to God. I believe that God blessed that decision, and that is why I am a rich man today."

As he finished it was clear that everyone had been moved by this man's story. But, as he took his seat, a little old lady sitting in the same pew leaned over and said: "Wonderful story! I dare you to do it again!"
