Use The Secret Weapon

15th December 2014

In many countries all around the world especially here in the Bahamas people are busy shopping and preparing to celebrate the festive season of Christmas.  Vehicular traffic can be seen lined up for miles and in the malls windows of shops are dressed so elegantly as if to say, “Come in here and sample my wares!”  Children are looking with great anticipation for their gifts and of course all of this with much more is good in its place but I heard these words as they rang out so urgently, “Use the secret weapon!”  Immediately the Word spoke from the book of 1 Kings chapter 17 from verse (1)” And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.” Can you imagine Elijah being so bold and having so much confidence in Abba Father?  Now read the instructions that were given to Elijah after such a daring declaration in (2)”Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying,”  (3)”Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan.”  (4)”And it shall be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”

Truth be known all around the Globe while hundreds if not thousands are able to celebrate and shop generously, there are far more others who are not in a position to do this and sadly they may not even have enough food to eat for there seems to be a drought in the land.  Many men and women are not employed, much more are uncertain about their future.  Young people are frustrated and are beginning to lose hope.  Far too many people are being displaced, the electricity has been turned off and the water is about to be disconnected!  I hear it again, “Use the secret weapon,” do what Elijah did.  Elijah prayed that it would no rain except at his word.

What about you where ever you are on your journey, it’s time to use the secret weapon of prayer.  I challenge you (me too) in these trying and difficult times to not only continue to pray persistently and consistently but to also seek to make a difference in each life you cross paths with.  Speak a kind word to every angry face you encounter, you do not know the pain and suffering angry people are going through.  As you prepare this Christmas dinner reach out and share with those around you.  This winter is colder and the nights are increasingly draffy if you have extra warm clothes and blankets please, seek out those who have need of them.  Call a friend and your relatives whom you have not talked to for the entire year and speak a word of encouragement to them, keep hope alive.

It is time for the Church to be the Church not only at Christmas time but during each day of the year, the Word is speaking again this time from the book of Joel 2: (15)”Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly;”  (16)”Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, and the bride from her dressing room.”(17)”Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, weep between the porch and the alter; let them say, “Spare Your people, O LORD, and do not give Your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them.  Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?”  The Church (me too) must live a consecrated life in Christ to be empowered effectively to use the secret weapon of prayer to not only call down fire from heaven but to purge the land from crime and every sin of omission and commission; Do you not know the power lies within you?

I hear it resounding even though you may be very busy with your preparations for the Christmas Holidays but it is now speaking louder from the book of Joel 2:15-16, (15)”Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly;” (16)”Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, and the bride from her dressing room.” Pause right where you are……..quiet; Can you hear it? Hear what you may ask……..Listen, “Use the secret weapon of prayer to effect a change right where you are!”  Do not procrastinate your prayer is needed and who knows it will cause the land to be revived.  The Word is speaking from verses eighteen and nineteen of Joel chapter two. (18)”Then the LORD will be zealous for His land, and pity His people.  (19)”The LORD will answer and say to His people, ‘Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil, and you will be satisfied by them; I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.” But there is something you and I have got to do; we must USE THE SECRET WEAPON OF PRAYER!

Where is Your Threshing Floor?

Be it known to you this day whenever Yahweh is breaking through on every side that you maintain your threshing floor. Never get caught up in the detail of attempting to number what or how God is winning the victory. For He far exceeds your expectation of Him. Be always alert! Let us read what happened to the children of Israel when King David numbered the people in the book of 1 Chronicles chapter twenty- one beginning from, the verse (1) “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. (2) “And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people. Go, to the rulers of the people. Go number Israel from Beersheba even Dan, and bring the number of them to me, that I may know it.”  (3) “And Joab answered, The LORD make his people a hundred times so much more as they are: but my Lord the King, are they not at all my Lord’s servants? Why then doth my lord require this thing? Why will he be a trespass to Israel? It is a dangerous thing not to listen to wise counselors whom God has placed in your life. Let us read about how King David’s word prevailed over Joab’s wise counsel given to King David. Verse (4) “Nevertheless the King’s word prevailed against Joab. Wherefore Joab departed, and went throughout all Israel, and came to Jerusalem.”   (5) “And Joab gave the sum of the number of people unto David. And all they of Israel were a thousand and a hundred thousand men that drew sword: and Judah was for hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew the sword, and Judah was for hundred thousand men that drew a sword. (6) “But Levi and Benjamin counted he not among them:  For the Kind’s word was abominable to Joab.”  This thing that King David had done had angered God and it caused the entire nation to

Suffer, many died too. (7) “And God was displeased with this thing:  therefore, He smote Israel.”  Take careful note, God spoke to David’s seer whose name was Gad. Verse (9) “And the LORD spake unto Gad, David’s seer, saying,” (10) “Go and tell David, saying, thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.”  (11) “So, Gad came to David, and said unto him, thus saith the LORD, choose thee (12) “Either three years famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coast of Israel.  Now, therefore, advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.”  Pause for a moment to inhale, now exhale as you read of David’s reply to his seer from the verse (13) “And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.”  (14) “So, the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.”

Where you are on your journey you may be experiencing a bountiful harvest, you may have become extremely popular and busy in your ministry. On the other hand, there are some people who quietly go about doing mighty exploits for the LORD, but I hear loudly, where is your threshing floor? Kindly bear with me as you read verse (15) “And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and He repented Him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, it is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. What happened next is incredible. Verse (16) “And David lifted up his eyes and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces. The anger of the LORD was still kindled against King David. Verse (17) “And David said unto God, is it not I that commanded the people to be numbered? Even I it is that have sinned and done evil indeed, but as for these sheep, what have they done? Let thine hand, I pray thee, O LORD my God, be on me, and on my father’s house but not on thy people, that they should be plagued. I hear it again, where is your threshing floor?

No matter how busy you may have become do not allow yourself to become absent from your threshing floor. Take careful note of where the LORD stopped the angel of the LORD to stop killing. It was at Ornan the Jebusite threshing floor. Read now what David seer’s message of instructions from the LORD in response to His repentant plea from the verse (18) “Then the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up, and set up an altar unto the LORD in the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. Obedience is key to your breakthrough on the threshing floor, but where is your threshing floor? Verse (19) “And David went up at the saying of Gad, which he spake in the name of the LORD.”  

It was early in the morning when Abba, Father gave me this word from Chronicles chapter twenty-one and He asked me this question, where is your threshing floor? I was away from home, but in the room that I was in it became my threshing floor! Listen, you will not only experience breakthroughs, but the supernatural power of Yahweh will envelop you but where is your threshing floor?    

The Thief of Time

Household Wickedness

5:55 a.m.

31st December 2013 

One of my god children had summoned me from my bedroom and was leading me to the kitchen when suddenly I stopped. The little child turned and was beckoning me to follow him, but I did not for there was a black panther waiting for me in the kitchen. I awakened it was a dream! 

This was very disturbing because black panthers can be extremely dangerous animals. These words then resounded, “Household Wickedness.” 

Take careful note that evil spirits can impersonate relatives and friends in your dreams to gain entry. 

Could it be whom I thought to be my beloved god child, could he have been impersonated by the Leprechaun spirit which is indeed a destructive spirit? The thing is had I not seen ahead of time the Black Panther. He was leading me into a deadly ambush right in my own home! I hear it resounding Household Wickedness. Just then the Word spoke from the book of Judges 15 beginning at verse (11)” Then three thousand men of Judah went down to the cleft of the rock of Etam, and said to Samson, “Do you not know that the Philistines rule over us? What is this you have done to us? And he said to them, “As they did to me, so I have done to them.” (12)” But they said to him, “We have come down to arrest you, that we may deliver you into the hand of the Philistines.”  Then Samson said to them, “Swear to me that you will not kill me yourselves.”  But these were Samson’s own people who had come up against him to deliver him to the enemy to be killed! 

You may have wicked people who are of your household, and they may hate you with a cruel hatred like Joseph’s brothers hated him and yes, they will conspire with evil spirits to try to destroy you. The Word is speaking again this time from Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me, says the LORD.” 

Listen to what Samson’s people said to him. (13)” So they spoke to him, saying, no, but we will tie you securely and deliver you into their hand; but we will surely not kill you.”  And they bound him with two new ropes and brought him up from the rock.” 

Take note this is household wickedness in its fullness. Samson’s own people assuring him they would not kill him yet on the other hand luring him into the hands of the enemy to be killed! (14)” When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arm became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.”  (15)” He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it and killed a thousand men with it.”  (16)” Then Samson said: “With the jawbone of a donkey, heaps upon heaps, with the jawbone of a donkey I have slain a thousand men!” 

Right where you are strange and bizarre things happening in your home and you could be at your wits end. It is time to call for the fresh fire of God to re-ignite your life! Let us go over to the book of Acts where the Apostles prayed each day for a fresh supply! Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were filled with The Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.”  Yes, I reiterate pray every day for a fresh supply of Holy fire to defeat household wickedness. Continue to study the Word and pray relentlessly and persistently make sure though you are you are fully armoured and in right standing with God! 

The fresh fire of God released into your life will not only destroy and break every evil soul tie, but you will see your household enemies flee in terror from you! Do not sit by another day and allow household wickedness to destroy your family. Rise up in the strength of Yahweh and through the work of The Holy Spirit confront and annihilate household wickedness in the name of Jesus! 

You will escape the deadly traps set up for you by your very own people of your household like my god child who was leading me to a black panther, it was hiding in the kitchen waiting to attack but remember that was only a dream? The Word is speaking from Micah 7:6 “A man’s enemies are the men of his own household.” 

Could it be that household wickedness is increasing? Pause and calmly think about this! Much Love.  

THE COMPLETE PLAN

I do not understand the complete plan why burdens get so heavy, nor why You allow such pain and anguish. I don’t understand the depth of Your Love, nor why all this humiliation and suffering. Now a new day has dawned and I see the complete plan.

THE GREAT SHAKING

Tuesday 

18th June 2013 

I was awakened during the early hours of the morning on this past Sunday to hear these words spoken, “I Am shaking!” Immediately the Word spoke from the book of Isaiah 2:19 (Good News Bible) “People will hide in caves in the rocky hills or dig holes in the ground to try to escape from the LORD’S anger and to hide from His power and glory, when He comes to shake the earth.” The Word continued speaking, Haggai 2:6 “Before long I will shake heaven and earth, land and sea.” Pausing for a moment, the Word rang out from Isaiah 13:13 saying, “I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place on that day when I, the LORD Almighty, show my anger.  

Could it be that you and I have become like heathens who know not God and are doing abominable things, which has kindled the wrath of God against us as a nation? Too much murder and wickedness all around the globe is taking place. One has only to turn on the radio or television or connect with the internet and you will see and hear for yourself a great shaking is taking place in every nation including the Bahamas! 

The wrath of God is kindled against us as a nation; we have abandoned the house of the LORD and each one seeking after our own way! There is a clarion call for Yahweh’s people to repent from the pulpit to the door: Repent of all the evil of your doing! Put away from you lying, stealing, murder, adultery, fornication, perversion, back biting, and every work of the flesh! Repent! The Word is resounding this time from the book of Joel 2:12-13, 15, 16-17. (12)” But even now, “Says the LORD, repent sincerely and return to me with fasting and weeping and mourning.” (13)” Let your broken heart show your sorrow; tearing your clothing is not enough.” Come back to the LORD your God. He is kind and full of mercy; He patient and keeps His promise; He is always ready to forgive and not punish.” (15)” Blow the trumpet on Mount Zion; give orders for a fast and call an assembly!” (16)” Gather the people together; prepare them for a sacred meeting; bring the old people; gather the children and the babies too.  Even newly married couples must leave their homes and come.” (17)” The priest, serving the LORD between the alter and the entrance of the Temple must weep and pray: “Have pity on your people, LORD. Do not let other nations despise us and mock us by saying, ‘Where is your God?”  

The question is are you and I willing as a people and as a nation to put away the evil of our doing and do what thus says the LORD and repent? Pause for a moment as you ponder on that question and think about this, what if that great and dreadful day of the LORD meets you unprepared? Yahweh is shaking all nations! Will you and I be able to stand The Great Shaking? 

Foundational Problems

white clouds

Returning from a wonderful evening along with my two-house guests found an unsettling discovery upon opening the front door. The entire house had standing water except for the dining room and kitchen, but I was not prepared for the next discovery where both bathroom tubs had raw sewage, it was very unsightly and unsettling. The linoleum flooring and carpeting were all ruined! Signaling the first episode of a foundational problem which has plagued my household for more than thirty years. When things were functioning at their optimum this awful problem would erupt and cause the entire home to be in disarray, shutting down the plumbing system. Meanwhile, Abba Father has had me on a special assignment to pray about this foundational problem. There were times when it felt that all my strength was gone and I could not pray another prayer; just then these words would speak to me, “Slack not your riding!”  At one point this foundational problem caused so many other problems, I just simply stopped praying and all hope was quickly drifting away but Yahweh is so merciful and full of compassion, the Word awakened me from the book of Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy GOD: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Still, I remained upon my bed non- responsive until these words rang out from Abba, Father, “Margaret, get up! I need you to function.” Immediately, I sat up in the bed then stood on my feet and responded, “Father, forgive me. I will go and continue to do Your bidding!” The prayers continued sometimes all night until 6 a.m. and would proceed throughout the day.

Recently, I felt a shift in my home and followed instructions for two weeks consecutively to be in prayer at 9 a.m. One morning while on my knees praying an unseen hand stood me on my feet and directed me to prayer walk the entire house. Upon entering the hallway, it was as if it was in the sewer, the foul scent emanated – the full height of it. Incredibly the prayers continued until after 2 p.m., that afternoon but what I did not know was that while in prayer the foundational problem had erupted yet again but this time divine intervention was holding back the devastating effects. The Word spoke from the book of Isaiah 59:19 “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.”

Wherever you are on your journey have you been experiencing vexing problems in your home? Is your marriage all torn up and does your children seem estranged? On your job, has the problems intensified? Pause for a moment, take a deep breath in……. now breathe out……. more questions. When your problems are no more and everything is going well, do those same problems reoccur? Do you make progress only to experience ending up at the same place you started? While you are thinking on these questions just maybe your problems could be foundational. Could it be the problem or problems are a result of what your ancestors have done?

Let us pause right now to pray.  Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus breathe on your beloved one reading this message and unlock the mystery behind the scenes which are causing chaos and confusion. Father, remove all blinders, along with deception. In Jesus name, unveil your truth and sever all lies. For Your Word declares in the Gospel of John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Amen.

Listen, when my foundational problem first surfaced and I stood looking at what seemed like a flood compounded with raw sewage in both bathtubs; silently I said to the Lord, “Is it possible for us to bathe in these tubs again?” The carpeting and flooring were destroyed, and all our house guests’ belongings were soaking wet!

You may have asked Abba Father if He could use you again because of where you have been and for all that you have experienced with reoccurring foundational problems. You may have ventured far to get away from the vexing problem only to have it follow you! It is only when you locate the root cause of your problems which could indeed be generational. You must sever the root through the leading of The Holy Spirit in consistent, persistent, relentless prayer and fasting. The Word is speaking from the Mark 9:28-29 (28)” And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, why could not we cast him out?” (29)” And he said unto them, this kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”

Through the work of The Holy Spirit my husband walked to a specific area in the yard and to dig in the ground where the foundational plumbing is, and he discovered a “T/ Pipe” had broken off and it had caused the vexing and distressing problem to my entire household for over thirty years. Yes, we dealt with all the symptoms but had not realized the problem was foundational. Take note, it was not the Plumber, who discovered the root cause, it was my husband. I hear it resounding, only you can locate the cause of your problems by asking Abba Father to show you, who in your genealogy may have messed up and done evil and did not repent? Could it be that Yahweh wants you to stand in the gap to break it off not only you but off your entire generation and even for the generations to come so they too will be free of strongholds and foundational problems? Listen, my household has now been set free from the foundational problem that had plagued us for over thirty-two years O Hallelujah! Symbolically, I hear the words of the Psalmist speaking from Psalm 124 (1)”If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;” (2)”If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us;” (3)”Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:” (4)”Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:” (5)”Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.” (6)” Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us a prey to their teeth.” (7)” Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:” (8)” Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”

I hear Isaiah 41:10 speaking again, can you hear it? “Fear not; for I am with thee be not dismayed; for I am thy GOD: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Could it be that Yahweh is calling you to get up right where you are and deal with your foundational problems?
