Prophetic Words + Themes
Below are extracts from the prophetic word received at the commissioning service in December 1999 in Cape Town South Africa
I hear the sound - the sound of worship coming from New Zealand. I hear the sound of worship coming from the Islands. The sound of worship. The shout of cries of thanksgiving to God. I see Sons and daughters going to the nations as arrows of deliverance, in time, to smite the works of darkness. To bring the kingdom of God to that part of the world. God will give you a special impartation of the anointing and the power of the Holy Spirit. You carry an apostolic release, and a fresh call from the spirit of God. You will be Gods oracle and speak the mind, the will and purposes of God. From your mouth will come a two edged sword to smite down the works of darkness, to raise the foundations of many generations. To raise up sons and daughters to go to the nations of the world from this place. It is not called Christchurch in vain. Out of this place will come the voice of Jesus Christchurch to the nations of the world. Son and daughter I send you forth as a couple fitted for the work. It will be a good work. It will be a mature work, it will be a good work. There will be a shout that will be the voice of Jesus to the nations. In this house people will know that God reigns - people will live and have life! This church will be birthed in relationships and in the fellowship of the saints. This will be a place where people will find shelter and rest and more importantly they’ll find the equipping of God. This will be a place where they’ll find the enablement and empowerment of God and people will go forth and do what I've called them to do. People will be strengthened and this house will be known for its spirit of discipleship. I will raise up a spirit of discipleship , It will be known as a house of discipling where my people will be discipled, and they will be strengthened. Arms will be strengthened for war and from there I will bring forth a spirit of a warrior – a spirit of warfare will arise - to bring forth - A spirit of pioneering, that God will fulfil what this city has been called to do. God bless New Zealand! God bless Christchurch!
repeated prophetic words for EVery Nation Christchurch
This church will be an airport - many will come and go and be refreshed, trained, empowered, equipped, established and healed. The church, like an airport, will welcome and send people to the four corners of the world.
The word we received for the building before we moved in was "epi-centre" (and this was long before Christchurch experienced years of earthquakes). An epi-centre for the fires of revival.
The inheritance and call of the house is healing. We must partner with this birthright. The inheritance of signs and wonders and miracles will be unlocked and it will unlock an inheritance.
2018 | Burn
'Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us ....’ Luke 24:3
This year our prophetic theme is BURN. We believe 2018 will be a year where you will be refuelled, re-fired, and refreshed as you hear Him speak to you. Journey with us as our hearts burn for revival, as we are set ablaze and called to pioneer Kingdom things ‘ stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning ‘ Luke 12:35
We encourage you to listen to our keynote podcasts on Burn during the month of January.
2017 | ENLARGE
We are almost at the end of another year! God promised to enlarge us during 2017 and He has. There are many testimonies of - glass ceilings being broken and shattered over individuals; people learning to really trust God despite circumstances; strengthening through challenges; perception upgrades; stronger faith; character building; fighting and pushing through offence; saying yes to God even when we feel weak etc (and many more). There are days when the plan of God seems completely wrong and we simply do not understand it. We are paralysed with fear and doubt and treading water in the storm-tossed sea of life, desperately longing to see Him walking on the treacherous waves towards us, and rescue us.
It’s in these moments that we must choose to trust the plan maker, the master designer, even though our faith is small and we cannot understand. His ways are higher than our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. And His plan is perfect.
This year I have sensed that God has allowed us to not only look at where we are, but if we are to spread out, we must look back, around, and ahead.The dynamic of stretch happens when tension, flex, or strain, is added to any muscle group. An ability to stretch can produce increased flexibility and prevent injury.
YES! the Lord has allowed us to be stretched this year. He is absolutely calling for an overhaul of the body of Christ so that when the new wine is poured, we will be the new wine skins and will have the capacity to stretch and not tear, so that we can contain what He is pouring out and then give it out to the world.
When we enter into our promises,God enlarges our territory .”enlarge the place of your tent ,and let them stretch out the curtains of your habitations; spare not, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall spread out to the right hand and to the left, your descendants shall inherit the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited “ Isaiah 54:2-3 We are expanded so we can carry more - more favour, more influence and the resources required to fulfil the destiny God has given us.
Isaiah 54 starts with this wonderful verse that speaks to the effect of extreme worship on barrenness itself.
“Shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child; break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed; for the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous than the sons of the married woman,” says the Lord (Isaiah 54:1).What a promise. In this chapter we find a barren woman who is exhorted to shout for joy before she becomes pregnant. The end result is that she will have more children than the one who has been having children all along. This provides quite the prophetic picture. The people who are people of worship, regardless of circumstances, will become fruitful in ways beyond reason.
Jesus longs to rest upon not just the few, but a whole generation of unstoppable, fearless servant lovers. Jesus will enlarge your capacity to carry His Presence, ignite your heart with passion, and transition you into new realms of Heaven. You will find yourself in a greater place of yielded ness as you believe that you too can be filled up to all the fullness of God.As we find our lives enlarged ,I trust others will be impacted by our stretch as we enter into our ultimate assignment to be one who hosts the Presence of the King of Glory.
