I come to reclaim My People

Notes of Praise and Intercession Night on 29 October 2013

A picture of Jesus on a Throne. He was behind the Altar in Church where Mass was being said.

He was very sad of face because so many of His People were missing.

As the Mass progressed the people were thanking God for His Son's presence in the Eucharist and this made Jesus very happy and seemed to console Him greatly.

As people streamed towards Him in the Eucharistic Feast it was as though His light enered into them.They were sufffused with grace and their bodies seemed to grow in stature but not as much as their spirits which on meeting Jesus were enrobed with joy and grace entwined and were envigorated and eager for Jesus. It was as though our tired and enfeebled bodies and spirits were lifted up and made whole. After this encounter each person was more than they had been before and prepared to go forth for the Kingdom.

Put aside all earthly concerns. Unite to My Holy Spirit. Be one in My Body for I have much work for you. Saving Souls. Unite your will to Mine

Ezekiel 37 v 4-6

4 He said, 'Prophesy over these bones. Say, "Dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh.

5 The Lord Yahweh says this to these bones: I am now going to make breath enter you, and you will live.

6 I shall put sinews on you, I shall make flesh grow on you, I shall cover you with skin and give you breath, and you will live; and you will know that I am Yahweh." '

Colossians 1 v 9-14

9 That is why, ever since the day he told us, we have never failed to remember you in our prayers and ask that through perfect wisdom and spiritual understanding you should reach the fullest knowledge of his will

10 and so be able to lead a life worthy of the Lord, a life acceptable to him in all its aspects, bearing fruit in every kind of good work and growing in knowledge of God,

11 fortified, in accordance with his glorious strength, with all power always to persevere and endure,

12 giving thanks with joy to the Father who has made you able to share the lot of God's holy people and with them to inherit the light.

13 Because that is what he has done. It is he who has rescued us from the ruling force of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of the Son that he loves,

14 and in him we enjoy our freedom, the forgiveness of sin.

Picture of water pouring down, and sense of the Lord saying "Victory is Mine, I come to reclaim My People."

Picture of Jesus with the Crown of Thorns and a sense of Jesus being lost, broken and confused.

Picture of a chain and one of the links breaks apart.

Picture of a rope fraying and then snapping.

Picure of a door opening.

The power of praise helps to open up the power of the Spirit to unbind and free people.

"Arise" The Lord inhabits the praises of his people
