Look-Up! God is in Control!

8.9.2019

Shift your Mindset
Look up, Look Up , Victory is Yours!

As I listen and look, I see many in tremendous struggles through no fault of their own. It seems such a contrast to the great hope of this new era we are in and the promises we have heard.

However, this is the year of birthing and you are birthing!!
As such, you are in this great contrast of joyous expectation admist the process of actually giving birth!!

So Look up!!
Look Up!! God is in Control!!

God says, “Shift your mindset!! See from My perspective!! I work wondrously and I see everything concerning you and I am working all things together for good for those who love me! I am bringing forth new life for you!!

In this season there is a convergence of all the components of your life, your situation, your mindsets, your family, the sin that so easily besets, your national upbringing, etc., and I am working wondrously for you. I am working all things together to see that you emerge from the weariness and turmoil of your circumstance into fullness of life in me.

You are feeling the squeeze, you are feeling the push, for you are giving birth!! In this year of birthing you are giving birth to new life!! The birthing process is a process of stretching and rearranging the body so that life can come forth.
I am enlarging you to bring forth new life in you. I am allowing the pressure and the pushing and the pressing to bring forth new life out of you!!

A butterfly can only fly because of the pushing and pressing out of the chrysalis. You too will only learn to fly as I allow the pushing and pressing to cause you to give birth to the life of Christ in you!!
Giving birth is not easy, but I am watching and I am working all things together for good.

Even Jesus my Son had to experience suffering because the enemy has access to the sons of men through the weight of sin and the weakness of the flesh. However I orchestrate all things to work together for good. Jesus overcame all the power of the enemy. He was victorious and His blood forever makes a way for your victory!!
It is an appointed time for you to give birth to new life in this season.

You will shine with this new life of glory birthed in the midst of adverse circumstance.
What the enemy meant for harm, I have turned for good and you will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!!

As Satan himself has regretted nailing my son to the cross, so too will he regret messing with my bride, for you will come forth victorious .

So rise and shine, lift up your head, for abundant life is about to spring forth through you my people.

I AM among you as I was with Joshua and the Israelites as they prepared to take the promised land.
You have crossed over and I AM among you to renew covenant, to lift weariness off you and roll the reproach of the past season from you. (Josh.5: 1-11)
I AM among you to restore you to strength so that you can go forth and conquer.
I AM with you to roll off the anguish of the past, the disappointment of past defeats.
I AM among you to restore your soul, refresh you and give you new hope.
For I AM equipping you to move forward in overcoming power and see the victory that you have cried out for, even for many years!!
I AM among you and you will overcome and bring forth life!! You will see and you will rejoice and you will forget the pain of your labour when you see the child that has been born to you!! “


Is.54 ’Sing O barren one’ !!…Rejoice!

Release the sound of victory!! For God is well able to keep His promises. In fact the Lord delights to keep His promises and the opportune time is now!!
Praise, dance, move, rejoice and lift your head!! 

This is the time of your rising, you’re coming forth and bringing to birth. The situation may look painful and overwhelming, but rejoice, for once the baby is born, you don’t remember the pain of bringing it forth!! (for too long!! lol) 
The Lord is in control!! He sees and he knows, He is a good Father and He is orchestrating a plan for certain breakthrough!!

There is a holy awe, a canopy of His presence that has descended over the body of Christ.
God is making His presence felt so that the body of Christ does not miss this opportune time!!
God is perfecting those things concerning you!! 

Take these days leading up to the Hebrew New Year of 5780 to spend time with the Lord. Let Him work in you so that you live in the vital reality of intimacy and the knowledge of your identity, for we are in a place of dramatic shift and change to bring forth ‘Christ in us the hope of glory’!!

Don’t look at the struggles as failures and defeat by the enemy. See yourself as going through some light and momentary afflictions, pressing through and attaining  ‘a greater weight of glory’ that will manifest in and through you!!

2 Cor.4:17 – For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 

Much love and blessings,

Watch & Wait to Pentecost

May 30, 2019
Dear Watchman Warriors,

There are 50 days from Passover to Pentecost, that is 50 days from Jesus resurrection to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Today is day 40, the day that Jesus was taken from the earth and he commanded his disciples to go and wait in the Upper room for the release of the Holy Spirit.

This Easter, on the anniversary of the ultimate shift into a new era, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we saw the body of Christ come again into a New Era!! Now as we come into the anniversary of Pentecost, I believe God is about to release a greater empowering for this new era!!

Since Easter, there has now been 5 major ‘light shows’ across the Australian sky.
There has been 2 comets seen across the sky, there have been 2 meteors hit Australia with great explosions of light and the ‘Aurora Australis,’ the southern lights, although rarely seen have been visible in the southern sky.
God is declaring that His light and power is about to be displayed across Australia in greater measure!!

Having seen the dramatic display of His light coming into the earth, in these next 10 days ( May30-June8) we are meeting daily to watch and pray! Just as the disciples did, we are watching for a greater release of His presence and power through the Holy Spirit for the New Era!!!! There is a drawing to know  Holy Spirit and at the leading and unction of Holy Spirit  we will again see the release of powerful signs and wonders, healings and great advancing in the establishing of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

We see in the story of Elijah and Elisha, a picture of what the Lord is doing in this new era!!
The promise to Elisha was that if he saw Elijah taken into the heavens, he would receive a double portion of his mantel.
What Elisha saw when Elijah was taken in the whirlwind, were the chariots and horses of Israel.
I believe they represent the double portion anointing of the Spirit. Elijah went up in a whirlwind, but the chariots and horsemen of fire, were sent into the earth.
As Elisha saw Elijah leave, he ripped his old coat (mantel). He was taking it off to show his grieving and yet it made way for Elisha to take up his new mantel.

As we wait, we must look to see what the Lord is releasing. We must purposefully rip the old away in order to make room for the new to come.
Elisha declared, my father, my father, the chariots and horsemen of Israel!!
Elisha knew who his father was, he honoured him as his father and grieved that he was gone, but he rose to take hold of the new!!
Elijah picked up the double portion mantel and was emboldened to say, ‘show me the God of Elijah!’, because he saw the double portion of fire released into the earth.

Many years ago Heidi Baker released a prophecy of Chariots of Fire racing across the earth carrying the pure saints of God moving with great  love and power!!
Let’s decree the release of these chariots of fire in greater measure. Decree the release of a double portion of the Holy Spirit’s love and power into people, communities and nations!! 

The Lord  said to Joshua,  ‘As I was with Moses so I will be with you!!  This statement is reverberating in my heart!!
There were so many places and so many times that God showed himself strong in dramatic ways for Moses, but the Lord led me to  Moses asking to see God’s glory.
Moses had seen Gods fire, God’s power, God’s miracles, God’s presence. He had met with God face to face and yet he then asked to see His glory.

There is a level of glory that God wants us as His people to experience, that we have perhaps not seen yet. I believe it is a call from God to come and meet with Him, to watch and wait for Him, to be bold to ask to experience a greater measure of who He is.
God wants to reveal himself in greater measure. He is longing for us so to experience Him in greater measure, so we know Him and can release the expression of the fullness of who He is!

The release of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost saw the release of the power of God that caused the disciples to rise up and be the people of God that could change the world ad disciple the nations until the then known world had become predominately christian.

Prayer Watch
In the next 10 days we will pray systematically through Ps.63 to find ourselves in a new level of trust and a new level of faith to receive all that God is pouring out at this time.
Pray and call each one up to possess our inheritance in greater measure and advance the Kingdom in love and power, in Australia and across the globe!!

Watching with expectation.
Much love,
Cheryl xx

A New Hope!!

In our Firehouse in prayer, we heard a promise from the father of the release of a new dimension of glory from heaven to earth!!

A New Dimension of Glory on earth!!

We were lead to pray for 21 days in the days before Easter and pray and fast to see a new dimension of glory on earth, like it is in heaven.

After these days we received a prophetic word from the Lord which has encouraged us that He ha heard our prayers and indeed opened new portals of the knowledge of the glory of the Lord in the earth!!

Here is the prophetic word to encourage you.

I heard the Lord say:

Yes, it is no longer business as usual, you have broken into a whole new realm of my Kingdom come into the earth!

It is my good pleasure to give to you the Kingdom!

It’s alive and fresh, just like the dawning of the new day!!

It’s spectacular in its potential,

It’s unprecedented in its favour,

It’s miraculous in its access to the power of the throne of Heaven!

It’s unparalleled in its beauty, the beauty it will bring to the earth through my people who know me and love me and have poured out their lives to see my Kingdom come!!

It’s spectacular in its significance, for this new realm of glory upon the earth, has the potential to usher in the great end time harvest!!

Don’t be weary in well doing!! I have called you to even greater dimensions of the knowledge of the glory of the Lord upon the earth and it is you my faithful warriors, whom I have called to continue to fight the good fight of faith and see my Kingdom advance in the earth!!

My army, my triumphant reserve, is the greatest force in the earth!!

Rise in the authority I have given you in these last days, for the advancing of My Kingdom in the earth rests upon your shoulders. Yet, I have anointed you and empowered you as the ‘mighty men’ of David’s army and as David did, I trust you with my life!!

Today, I anoint you for glory!!

The glory realm will be your portion and your inheritance!!

Today I anoint you to life!

Today I anoint you with the power and authority of heaven displayed in unprecedented ways upon the earth!!

I hope you are as encouraged by what the Lord has said as I was.

Thank you to all who for joined with us in what has been a  wonderful journey into a greater dimension of glory for us and I believe in the earth!

Love & blessings,

Cheryl xx

My Eye is on Australia!

My Eye is on Australia!!!  19.02.2019

Cheryl Lindley

My hand is moving across this nation answering the cries of the people!! My heart is moved with love and compassion towards this land and the faith of my beloved has caused me to intervene now!!!

The same weather cell that caused the flooding of N.Queensland and now the inundation of the entire outback of the nation, now sits off the S.E.Queensland Coast.

The Lord has said it will bring high swells into low lying areas of the Coast from Bundaburg to the Tweed!! This will effectively have water washing again across the State bringing some flooding to the coastal areas.

This will mean that the whole State has been effected by this storm cell!, the whole State has been awash with these waters!!

I believe that this is a prophetic picture of the Lord washing our State.

I heard the Lord say he was washing away the hidden vermin, the hidden pollutants and areas of gross infestation that have entered into our land and waterways. In His goodness he is washing away the hidden debris and pockets of hidden squalor in houses, parks and buildings that we have not seen or been able to deal with.

As in the natural, so in the spiritual, the Lord is releasing a flood of ‘the water of the Word’ to go forth across the nation to cleanse  and heal and call the nation back to righteousness!! He is sending forth His word to deal with the corruption and filth that has invaded our society. He is cleaning the land, the airways and waterways of the corruption to turn the hearts and minds of Australia back to Him.

The Graham Tour is the beginning of the Word of the Lord going forth across the nation to cleanse and heal and call the nation back to righteousness.

God is blowing on the voice of His people. Let your righteous voice be heard!! Prophecy!! Release the word of salvation in every situation to all who will listen. Release your voice of righteousness, justice, and the prophetic word of life into your world!!

Is.32:1-5

Look, a righteous king is coming! And honest princes will rule under him. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land. Then everyone who has eyes will be able to see the truth, and everyone who has ears will be able to hear it. Even the hotheads will be full of sense and understanding. Those who stammer will speak out plainly!!

Lord, flood our land nation with your word of truth, turning hearts and lives back to you!!

Much love,

Cheryl x

(NB. I am not suggesting that God was responsible for the devastation that has happened!!)

Know the Enemy’s Plan – Watch Out for Killer Bees

February 17, 2019.

Killer bees are a hybrid bee combining European and African Bees. They have this name because they are incredibly defensive and will attack quickly at the smallest provocation.

The bees swam together after their provoker and they will chase them for up to 200meters, in pursuit. The provoker is then stung multiple times over as each bee leaves its sting, which can indeed result in the death of even large animals and humans.

The Lord showed me that the enemy can provoke us to use our words in this way. On provocation we unleash an assault of words to sting and even cause death to others destiny, identity, confidence, peace, joy, love, faith, etc.

If we allow ourselves to be easily provoked and retaliate with our many words, these words swam around others and as we sting them with our words multiple times, we leave them wounded and lifeless!! This is also true of all the times we unleash a swam of insults and negative statements on ourselves!

Scripture is very clear about the power of our words for good and for evil!! Too often our words are used to tear down and not build up.

Just as we fail to understand the power of life-giving words, so too we fail to understand the destruction of negative, accusing, hateful, bitter words and their power to steal, kill and destroy.

James 3:6  And among all the parts of the body the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself!!

This year, the prophetic encouragement has been to decree life, health, prosperity, hope, justice and faith into our world. We have been encouraged to speak creatively with the power of the Holy Spirit and like God, create and fame our world with our words!!

I see the enemy at work attempting to sabotage the new dimensions of life we are building with our decrees!  We are building in faith and yet we can be torn down or tear others down through uncontrolled words!!

Our tongues can be set on fire by hell, and the enemy can provoke us to unleash a swam of words from our mouths that will go after our provoker until we have in some way stung them and poisoned them into silence and inability!

Prov.12:16,18  If you shrug off an insult and refuse to take offence, you demonstrate discretion indeed. But the fool has a short fuse and will immediately let you know when he’s offended…Reckless words are like the thrusts of a sword, cutting remarks meant to stab and hurt…

I believe that God is highlighting this and warning us to watch the provocation of the enemy. He is attempting to thwart the words you have spoken and nullify what you are building through your life.

Watch your words!! Speak life and hold your tongue when provoked!!

Pray:  Lord we pray a hedge of protection around us and the glory within. Make us aware of the enemy’s plan. Put a guard over our mouths that we may not sin against you and against each other, in Jesus name!!

Prophetic Word for Leaders in this Day of Awakening!! 21.11.2018

While I was  attending Awakening Australia in Melbourne, I was in awe as I had a sense I was witnessing the birthing of an historic move of God that will roll out across the nation, to the nations and down the generations!!! (Thank you Ben & Daniel)

Praying into this, I was reminded of a recent Prophetic Word from a young Australian revivalist, Matty Russell.

He said he believed that in this season of awakening it was important that the leaders of both generations run together. He saw that:

‘In a relay race, for a brief while, two runners have ahold of the baton at the same time.

Now is the time when both generations of leadership holding the baton, are to run together.’

I sensed the Holy Spirit confirming this word to me, but adding forcefully to it!!

‘The body of Christ is awakening across the land and indeed it is important that the leaders of both generations run together.

In this season when 2 generations are running together, it is important that each allow the other to keep their hand on the baton of leadership!

Both contributions are not just necessary, but vital to sustaining the life of ‘Awakening Australia’ that has been bought to birth in this season!

Both generations must give leadership to the body of Christ and each other in this season.

Both generations must defer privately and publicly to each other’s leadership. 

Both generations must take a firm hold on the baton of leadership, each willingly supporting the other in it.’

I felt the Lord add to this and give specific instruction on how to move forward in this New Era.

  1. The baton exchange is the critical part in any relay race.  If the baton exchange is done badly, the race can be completely forfeited  and lost!! The baton exchange between current leaders and next generation leaders is critical right now!! 
  2. To ensure that the momentum that has built for awakening across Australia continues, the running together and ultimate exchange must be executed with the wisdom and grace of the Holy Spirit. The process must be done carefully and prayerfully in the fear of the Lord .Even a fumbled transition can halt momentum and cause the race to be halted. By definition transition is a difficult season to navigate. It will require mutual respect, patience and weathering the intensity and difficulty we didn’t see coming. It will mean taking the hard knocks and still standing by your mate to make it through the storm.
  3. I heard, ‘ it will require good communication with neither party anxious to let the baton go nor anxious to receive it. It will require pure motives and pure hearts, with no selfish ambition or false humility.’
  4. It will also require careful, thoughtful deferring to one another and trust of each other. Overall it will require a submission to hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit and not dealing flippantly with a very difficult manoeuvre. Running together with both runners holding the baton takes much skill and patient practice in the knowledge of each other and how they run. Use this time of running together to develop relationship, love and mutual respect in leadership. Then when it is the time for a leader to let go, there will be a seamless exchange and the momentum of the move of God across the body of Christ in Australia will not be thawed by the enemy in months and years ahead.

Awakening You: into the New Era!

Nov.2. 2018

In the prophetic word for 5779, I said: ‘Aslan is on the move’!!
Aslan is the Lion King from the Chronicles of Nania, a fable that has a Lion King taking back His Kingdom from a wicked witch, vying for the sons of men.
Since then, I’ve heard 2 more prophets speak of it!

Aslan was the King of Nania who began to walk into His lost Kingdom and demonstrate His presence in Nania again!
It meant the barrenness of a long winter was over, for at His presence everything came to life!!

Jesus our King, has begun to make His manifest presence felt, all across the globe!!
We have entered a New Era and it means the barrenness of our long winter is over! SoS. 2:11!!

Sun of Righteousness Rising
There has been a dawning of the new day.
Before the new day it takes awhile for the sun to come up.
We prophesied it was coming, but now I feel not only has the day dawned, we are beginning to see in colour and the sun has very definitely come up over the horizon and the presence of the sun is being seen and felt in the new day.
As such, we are seeing like we have never seen before and prophetically we are coming alive! The Sun of righteousness is rising with healing in his wings. We will begin to experience healings like never before!
And we are seeing harvest, as righteousness is being released and people encounter Jesus and choose him.
I believe the momentum of a movement is building. It is a movement of the people of God releasing the life of the Father, the salvation of the Son and the power of the Holy Spirit to be felt across the nations.
The moment of awakening is here!

How do we Awaken to Life & Rise into this New Era?
In Luke 2, Jesus was baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit! Scripture says, He rose in the fullness of the Spirit. It was the presence of God with Jesus!
Jesus was then taken into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit to be tested and after 40 days He came out in the power of the Holy Spirit!!

Likewise we see the children of Israel, go through a baptism of the Red Sea and then come into a place where God revealed His presence to them.
He then gave them the commandments and set His presence among them in the Tabernacle and He went with them everywhere they went!

They eventually came out of the wilderness 40yrs. later, with the power to defeat their enemies and establish themselves in their promised land.

However, in the wilderness, both Jesus and the children of Israel went through a series of testings to bring them into their identity, and faith to establish their destiny!!

I believe, it is the same for each one of us.
We need to go through a baptism, a death to ourselves!
We must then establish the intimacy of the knowledge of the Holy Spirit and His manifest presence with us.
We must also experience some testings, to establish that we know who we are and whose we are so that we can operate in the power of the Holy with us!!

1.Knowledge of the Intimacy of HIs Presence with us.
Whose we are?

Jesus Awakening us into His Promised Destiny
Jesus after his baptism, was full of the Holy Spirit!
From the Jordan (to descend), the place of his baptism & death to self, Jesus was equipped with the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
The presence of the Spirit was with him! He was in the fullness of the Spirit!

Likewise after the crossing of the Jordan, a picture of baptism and deliverance, the Israelites had the presence of the Holy Spirit with them. They had the cloud by day and the fire by night. However, in Ex.33, Moses begged the Lord that His manifest presence accompany them as they set out through the wilderness!!
They were to learn to walk closely with His presence, allowing the cloud by day and the fire by night and the lifestyle of worship & sacrifice (for us worship & prayer) to be set as their culture.
It was a process of becoming a demonstration of their identity upon the earth!

We too, in the church are in preparation for the demonstration of who we really are – the fulfilling of our destiny here on earth.
The presence of the Lion of the tribe of Judah is among us!!
When God’s presence is among us, the enemy can no longer keep his hold on us and our circumstance.
The enemy must give way at the presence of the Lord!!

James Goll said in a recent e-mail. God said to him:
”I’m going to teach you to release the highest weapon of spiritual warfare.” But finally He added, “I will teach you to release the brilliance of My great presence.”

Exodus 33:14-16:
“And He said, ‘My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.’ Then he [Moses] said to Him, ‘If Thy presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. For how then can it be known that I have found favour in Thy sight, I and Thy people? Is it not by Thy going with us, so that we, I and Thy people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?'” (Emphasis mine)

This is a key of great authority in God’s Kingdom. The presence of God is the distinguishing characteristic that proves we have favour with God! Without it, we are as other men. The glory of God is “the manifested presence of God,” the visible evidence that the person of God, Himself, has shown up among us—and that is the greatest thing in life! I believe Moses was crying out to the Lord of Hosts, “Oh, Great One, do not take us up from here unless You go before us. Put the brilliance of Your great presence upon us.”

God is ensuring we live and move and have our being in Jesus and that we move not just in the power of the HS in us , but with the manifest presence of the Spirit around us.
That we carry his presence and change atmospheres that we enter is part of living in this new era and bringing the Kingdom of Heaven and the glory of God in the earth!!

If we live from His presence, from heaven to earth, we will display the knowledge of His glory on the earth!!

2. Wilderness Testings to activate His Power through us!
Who we are!!

When we follow the Holy Spirit he takes us out of the old and into the new, but its by way of the wilderness and testing!!

Without it, we bring the old us, into the new, and then it is just not new anymore!!
You have to leave the old you in the wilderness to flourish in the new that God has promised!!

God’s promises and pushing forward to move into them, will not only test you, but create a new capacity for faith.
We are choosing to awaken & rise into the blessings associated with our promise!

The old has to be severed and left in the wilderness so that we can pick up the new promises and start fresh!!
Even Jesus had to find his way into the new through a series of tests in the wilderness – its just the way of the Kingdom!!

In the wilderness, the Israelites also encountered Testing.
It’s actually God he allowing testing to establish that the old is really gone, so that we can now move forward into the new and maintain the new.
Its the process of establishing the new in us!
We have to know in ourselves that we are ready and we have shifted into being someone new and we now know how to maintain the new.

The Tests:
Luke 4:1
Jesus Tested in the Wilderness
4 1–2 From the moment of his baptism, Jesus was overflowing with the Holy Spirit. He was taken by the Spirit from the Jordan into the lonely wilderness of Judea to experience the ordeal of testing by the accuser for forty days.
He ate no food during this time and ended his forty-day fast very hungry.

3 It was then the devil said to him, “If you are really the Son of God, command this stone to turn into a loaf of bread for you.”
4 Jesus replied, “I will not! For it is written in the Scriptures,[f] ‘Life does not come only from eating bread but from God. Life flows from every revelation from his mouth.’”

5 The devil lifted Jesus high into the sky and in a flash showed him all the kingdoms and regions of the world.
6–7 The devil then said to Jesus, “All of this, with all its power, authority, and splendor, is mine to give to whomever I wish. Just do one thing and you will have it all. Simply bow down to worship me and it will be yours! You will possess everything!”
8 Jesus rebuked him and said, “Satan, get behind me! For it is written in the Scriptures, ‘Only one is worthy of your adoration. You will worship before the Lord your God and love him supremely.’”

9 Next, the devil took Jesus to Jerusalem and set him on the highest point of the temple and tempted him there, saying, “If you really are the Son of God, jump down in front of all the people. 10–11 For it is written in the Scriptures, ‘God has given his angels instructions to protect you from harm. For the hands of angels will hold you up and keep you from hurting even one foot on a stone.’”
12 Jesus replied, “It is also written in the Scriptures, ‘How dare you provoke the Lord your God!’”

13 That finished the devil’s harassment for the time being. So he stood off at a distance, retreating until the time came to return and tempt Jesus again.

These tests can be broken up many ways and in many categories:
body, soul, spirit; faith hope love, current, future, eternity; mind will emotions; flesh, the world and the devil! Identity, Destiny, Eternity!!

All these are legitimate interpretations and are tests for us that we have to overcome to move ahead into the next level of authority and power that God has for us. For this to happen we must understand and pass the tests.

Do I know who I am?, Do I know what I’m called to and will I endure what it takes to get there?, Can I trust the one who calls me with my life and journey into it??

We see Jesus finish the tests, come out of the wilderness in power and the first thing he does is proclaim who he is and what he is called to do and before long, demonstrate his power to do it!!

1.) Identity – I am a child of God & He loves Me!
Test : Do I know who I am?
Jesus demonstrated that He knew without a shadow of doubt, that He was the Son of God and God cared for him, regardless of the setting and situation he found himself in. He was pushed on this point many times by the religious leaders. In the wilderness He was tested on it , before He went into public ministry.

We cannot move into this new era without really knowing and being convinced of the love of the Father for us and that we are his child!!
The Father has pressed this point for many years. He has been teaching us, his people, that we are loved and we have been adopted and the spirit of sonship is on us and He cares for us and everything that is His, is ours.
Regardless of how things look in the natural, will we continue to trust God and believe that He loves us!!

Jesus perceived this taunt was from the enemy and was quick to resist.
We will only rightly perceive the lie, if we don’t believe it.
If there is anything in us that believes it, we will not be quick to defeat it, nor will we know the scripture to defeat it!
Like Jesus, if we have the word of God alive in us, we are able to recognise the temptation and we are able to really use it & resist the enemy!!
Our knowledge and agreement with the Word will be the difference between being overcomers and those who are defeated in this New Era!

The overcomes will be able to tell you what word they used to push back the evil one!!
You have to have the word alive and active in you so that when the evil one comes at you – you have the word of the Lord in you to use!!

Decree:1
Bread alone will not satisfy, I find true life in every word that is spoken from God’s mouth.

2.) Destiny – Do I Know why I am called to Destiny! –
Test : Do I Know I’m destined to give Him Glory?

Satan questioned Jesus on who He was going to serve by questioning His destiny??
Jesus destiny was to inherit the Kingdoms of this world for the glory of God!!

As we read the gospels, Jesus aim in his life was to bring God glory.
God calls us into a destiny with the same aim, to give Him glory!!
Jesus was passionate that God receive the glory due His name!!
I believe that this intense love for God and passion for Him to receive the glory He is due, must also be our passion.
So the enemy offers Jesus the easy way out. Just bow to me!!

Jesus knew His destiny, and perhaps a little of what it meant to inherit it!! This was a major temptation!! It was a quick, easy way through!!
However, Jesus was quick to resist because His passion was to love God first and ensure God received the glory due His name!! that must be our motivation!

Likewise the children of Israel were called to represent God upon the earth and reveal HIs glory and goodness to the world.
They encountered God on Mt. Sinai and saw His glory, but the process of waiting for the 10 commandments and not knowing what was happening, caused them to turn aside and take the easy way out !! We’ll just make a golden calf instead and call it our God!!!
It’s the easy way through when we are waiting, without knowing what’s happening!!
We must stay passionate in the love of the Father and be careful not to loose faith!!

It seems often when we get a glimpse of the next opportunity to move into the destiny call on our lives, often the enemy is there offering us a seemingly sure way or the easy way through, but it often comes with a compromise.
We must resist the compromise! It will be easy, we know God and love Him and make our greatest desire, ike Jesus to give him the glory due his name!!

Decree:2
We say as Jesus said, “Go away, enemy!
I kneel before the Lord my God and worship only him. Jesus we trust you with our whole heart!

3)Eternity – Can I trust God with my life!!
Test: Do I know and trust Whose I am, with my life?

Here the devil is tempting Jesus to take his life into his own hands declaring that God will save him.
Sometimes, we are tempted to be presumptuous because hey! God will look after us!!

It is a very cleaver temptation by the enemy. He makes it look like we would be really trusting God by taking our lives into our own hands and doing something that looks radical because of our faith. We see many fall into that trap, its easy to do.

What is radical is to say, God, I refuse to take my life into my own hands, regardless of the predicament I am in.
If Jesus didn’t throw himself down, where was he left? – up on a high pinnacle with the devil!!
It was Jesus answer that got him out of the jam. The devil left when He said, ‘Im not obeying you! I’m trusting God with my life!! I won’t be presumptuous with my life and do things my way, regardless of how things look!!’
Jesus told the Devil, thats not God’s way, I’m not telling God what to do for me!!

These tests are not small tests.
Here the enemy is again questioning Jesus on his identity telling him to prove himself!!
Many of us have been in testings that are provings! – can we trust God with our life and our eternity?
Can we put our very existence into Jesus hands and be sure everything will be ok?
If we put our lives in God’s hands, will we be throw down by the enemy, or do we have the courage to take up our own authority against him and declare – I’m not putting God to the test, I’m not putting my life in your hands, I’m believing God for my very existence, not you!!

It was the same test for Israel. Will you go the next step with me and cross into the promised land or will you take your life into your own hands and then presume upon me to look after you, while you take charge and do it your way?

They had to learn and know they were set apart as God’s children and He would look after them and feed them. (Elim & Rephadim) They had to know they had a destiny to show the world that they were a nation and their God walked with them and was the one true God? (Mt.Sinai) And they had to be able to trust Him and know He was able to look after them regardless of the situation and what they were called to. ( The promised land)
Unfortunately on this they failed!
They failed to trust and believe God to overcome through them, something that was impossible for them!!
This is the test that I see many of us fail. When we fail this test we have to take all 3 again, because we must re-establish these truths in us.
We must be established in God’s love and call on our lives, so that we can trust Him, and our faith increase to overcome!!

This is the real fight!! A fight into faith!! Knowing God as a good Father and trusting and having faith that He can do what He says He can do!!! The fight is to believe that with God all things are possible. It is a fight into faith!

Decree:3
I will not test God by doubting who I am and whose I am, and I will trust him with my life!!

The Breakthrough: (Todd Bentley)
8 Strategic Keys to Breakthrough in Your Life!

1.Persistent prayer. Grace works in persistent prayer! Spiritual breakthroughs come to those who persevere before the throne of grace in faith. Have you tried breakthrough prayer as a collective body?

Before breakthrough takes place, we need supernatural perspective. When the supernatural wisdom of God begins to flow from the dimension of Heaven to your spirit, the Holy Spirit gives your mind the revelation of the truth.

Spiritual maturity is developed as we learn how to persevere and persist, anchored on God’s Word, even when our natural circumstances show absolutely no signs of improvement. You become the greatest catalyst of breakthrough when you learn how to hear what God is saying and pray these eternal realities over the present conditions.

2. Worship. 1 Samuel 1:19, “And they rose up in the morning early, and WORSHIPED before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her” (emphasis mine).

3. Decree. “You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways” (Job 22:28 NASB). Are you in need of a breakthrough? A prophetic decree is an authoritative “now” word that unlocks the supernatural and causes a shift to take place. When we decree something, we are making a declaration that has the weight of Kingdom authority behind it.

4. Obedience—it is key. Jericho and the walls coming down required obedience. God gave directions to Joshua—they were not suggestions, they were His commandments. Their victory was totally reliant upon their obedience.

5. Shout! Praise is faith expressing itself audibly. Faith has a voice. Faith calls those things which be not, as though they were, and those things that be, as though they were not. Faith hears God say, “It’s done,” sees God make it so, and shouts because it believes it’s done! Paul and Silas’ prayer and praise caused tremors in the realms of darkness. Suddenly, a violent earthquake shook the building, and the doors were opened (see Acts 16:26).

6. Change your perspective. This requires seeing the invisible. Faith is about “things we do not see.” There are many ways of seeing or looking at something, but what matters is how God sees things. Sometimes we need to “change our approach to the battle.” Faith may be outworked in different ways!

7. Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving builds our faith, and that faith sustains us while we continue to believe for the complete miracle—for ourselves and for others. Focusing on what God is doing causes us to be thankful.

8. Hearing God. The voice of God is the master key to your supernatural breakthrough. Hear it and speak it. Agree with the decree.
If you TRULY want to create a breakthrough in your life, take consistent and persistent steps daily to your dreams or goals! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Tests create Testimonies!!
I believe God is looking to create testimonies so that he has a people who are a witness in the earth for him!
Like Heidi Baker, we are to stop for the one and pray that our breakthrough now becomes theirs too!!I believe that this will be the way to the harvest being reaped!!

God is taking us through the wilderness, so that we rise up and overcome and fight the fight of faith for victory over the enemy!!
Fight with scriptures that not only declare who you are in God, but declare who God is for you!!

Decree:4
I will not back down.
I resist the enemy and he must flee!!
Greater is He who is in me, than He who is in the world!!
I awaken and release the resurrection power in me, and live in the fullness of life in Christ!!!

Key Word for this New Era

Dear Family,
I have recently listened to this address from David Damien who is responsible for ‘Watchmen for the Nations.’
I believe this to be a key word for the body of Christ in this hour.
I believe it is a key word for Australia now, as we pray to Awaken this nation to rise into there fullness of her call and identity.
We as the people of God must understand this message if we are going to continue to shift the nation into alignment with the Kingdom of God!

Please ensure you get to listen to this message.

Much love, Cheryl x
