The Cross is the key and door to Heaven

Notes of Praise and Intercession Meeting on 19 July 2011

Picture of many nations all kneeling at the foot of the Cross. there were black, asian, chinese, white and arab nations, everyone on the Earth was represented. As we all looked at the Cross it became infused with different colours, it was as though the Cross became a keyhole or doorway into another World. Everyone could see into its very depths it was as though Heaven itself was turning before us.
There were valleys with corn ready for harvest, vineyards thick with glossy grapes, olive groves ready to be gathered, rivers flowing from beautiful waterfalls, great forests thick with foliage, many animals and seas with many fish swimming in their waters.
Then as this New Heaven turned there was revealed a huge white building with water flowing from under it and such a bright light emanating from within. It's columns and domes glistening and such beautiful singing and sounds from within.
Then the turning stopped and looking into a courtyard we could see Jesus talking and teaching. All those with Him seemed to be very happy and very relaxed. To the right was another courtyard Our Lady was there with many children and babies and some youths. The older ones looked after the younger ones. These children are our lost children, miscarried, stillborn, and the aborted babies. All of them were full of Joy completely healthy and looked as though despite our loss of them to be reaching their full potential. They seemed to have a special affinity with Our Lady and prayed happily for our conversion. they seemed to be always thanking God for their existence.
Slowly the picture subsides until we are again at the foot of the Cross. All the nations were amazed and started to sing and praise God. The throng of voices sounded similar to the beauty and musical sounds from within the white building. Then slowly a huge bubble of light rose out of the Cross and emptied itself upon all the nations and a flow of grace fell upon all.
Come to Me all you who labour and I will give you rest.

Revelation 14 v 13-15
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”

“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labour, for their deeds will follow them.”
14 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”

*Sense of heaven coming down to us and/or us being taken up to Heaven and of the angels joining in with our praise.

*You are the new wine, the special reserve held back ripened and matured for a time of great need. That time of great need is now here. Go out and do my work.

I will give you rest

I am doing a new thing

Notes of Praise and Intercession meeting 28 June 2011

Picture of a ball of light within a cloud of gloom. Within the ball of light I could see Our Lady holding in her arms the dead body of her Son Jesus. The light became larger dispelling the gloom and in its centre was Jesus risen from death.

It was as if all of us were being pulled into this light and as if with Our Lady we were all one with Jesus. Each person felt renewed, free and full of life. The life was flowing from Him into us until we all felt in tune. One body, He in us and we in Him. More and more we desired His presence.

The picture changes to Our Lady holding the dead figure of a man covered in sores and in a grievous state. This figure represents mankind and his state of being now in the world. Our Lady beckoned us to come and see the pitiful sight of our lost brothers and sisters. Our Lady presented this figure to God and she spoke words of supplication and tears of real sorrow fell from her eyes. As her eyes turned to us they pleaded for prayer and good actions to bring the light of the Holy Spirit to work upon this dead body, to reverse the damage and heal mankind. Her Son has paid the price but the sickness is so bad, more vigilant prayer is needed. As we begin to put into action her requests bit by bit the figure starts to recover, until a new child is in her arms glowing with health and able to understand and grow in God's ways.

All prayer, praise and acts of goodness defeat the enemy and enable healing and growth.

We are being called to bring light into darkness.

* Don't look back I am doing a new thing.
Isaiah 43:19 (New International Version)
19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

*Outpouring, downpour of the Spirit making us new, clean

*A body being hosed down - made clean

*A boat with men fishing casting out the nets, in the storm.

* A new day dawns , things are new

* The homeless man (the derelict) needing to be restored . Jesus wants to restore them and us

* Jesus is the Shepherd that looks for the lost sheep, to drag them from the swamp, to bring them to restful waters, to bind up their wounds.

Psalm 40 (New International Version)

1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.
4 Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. 5 Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.
6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire— but my ears you have opened— burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. 7 Then I said, “Here I am, I have come— it is written about me in the scroll. 8 I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart.”
9 I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, LORD, as you know. 10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly.
11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, LORD; may your love and faithfulness always protect me. 12 For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails within me. 13 Be pleased to save me, LORD; come quickly, LORD, to help me.
14 May all who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. 15 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” be appalled at their own shame. 16 But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The LORD is great!”
17 But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.

Fear not for I AM with you

Notes of meeting on 21 June 2011

A picture of Jesus and above Him a gentle bright light and around Him a light breeze.
Jesus seemed to gather the light and the breeze to Himself and then He breathed it out onto the World. The breath of light and the sound of the breeze gathered into a huge wave which gently rolled over every part of the earth reaching out and seeking and finding all dark areas renewing them with life.
I could see this wave eventually coming to our Diocese rolling through all towns and stopping here. Here in this room it added to the light already here making it brighter. It was as though the very air we breathed in healed us and uplifted us carrying us in its buoyancy. We all felt free of our burdens, free to be with Jesus with no effort needed. Such Joy, such Oneness. It was as though The Holy Trinity was equipping us in Gentleness. I felt we had no need to fear at all.
The word I had was "Fear not for I AM with you!"
