And I’ll plant  them,  plant them on their own land.  They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”  God, your God, says so.     Isaiah 58:11-12 KJV    [11] And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. [12] And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.  We are now on the threshold of a new season. The old season is past and done, and the next leg of our journey is BEGINNING! The new season will be one of revelation and relevance. Our environment and experiences will take on unusual importance and significance.  You are at the end of an era, a period of time marked by a greater level of discernment and the ability to express what you discern with clarity. You will not lose the spiritual  prophetic acuity  that you've gained. Instead, you will build on that foundation of precision and have opportunities to expand spiritually and apply that new level of discernment to every area of your existence.  You will need to look deeply into the details of every situation without fear of recrimination. The more honest and accountable you are, the better able you will be to see and accept the truth. The keys to discovery are flexibility and transparency, says the Lord.  It is important that we stay present with God—right here; right now. We must not dread or fear what’s coming or make presumptions with regard to what lies ahead. Nor should we live in regret of what is already done or try to go back to old places.  The LORD is preparing us as the Church, and there is much service to render!!!  Ephesians 5:26-27 states; “that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.  In this season many will realize they aren’t where they are supposed to be and will want to return or get back on track. Their absence will be excused by the Lord through God’s forgiveness. “Now” there will be a revival of the souls of those who have lost hope and given up. Their attention will be drawn away from their suffering as they once again look to the LORD and live. Our work is to demonstrate the kingdom and apply the Word in all things – to do what we’ve been taught.  James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  The number one priority for us in this season is unity with God. Our relationship with Him needs to be like a laser beam so that when that connection is disturbed or broken an alarm will go off in our spirit man.  If we will stay spiritually connected, revelation will be really crisp, and there will be greater clarity in discernment, and sensitivity in awareness. There will be razor-sharp prophetic acuity. We must set our desire on higher spiritual trajectory.  Prepare your heart through submission to come boldly into the LORD’S presence. Refuse to allow anything at all to come between your intimacy with the Lord. Now is the time to clear the spiritual air so that you can stand righteously before God in positional truth. Accept forgiveness and get ready to express the excellence of God’s kingdom in your mortal existence by living free from guilt and shame. Release all things that have held you in bondage, and be/live free.  Become first responders in the realm of the Spirit, so that your actions in response to the enemy's attacks are immediate and effective. Be aware that the longer you wait to resist and bind the powers of darkness, the more damage can be done. Your spiritual actions are vital to your freedom.  First responders are taught, trained, and equipped to respond to crisis situations. They are in a constant state of readiness--alert and selfless. They know that their routine could be interrupted at any moment. They do not allow any interference or distraction to keep them from their duty to contain the damage and bring restoration.  Our duty is to use the tools that God has given to us as we respond, exercising our faith by the Word of God and trusting Him in the face of adversity.  Practice discernment and exercise your faith. Your awareness is like a muscle that can be developed with use. Don't be afraid to activate your spiritual acuity in everyday situations and circumstances. This is a season when you can operate in spiritual gifts at a higher level than you ever thought possible. Prepare yourself by faith to hear God’s voice, to see visions, to dream dreams, and to have a heightened sense of your atmosphere and environment. Set yourself to receive all that God has made available to you and the LORD will be with you.  The external circumstances that have seemed to take you down in the past will now seem insignificant compared to the strength you have gained through endurance. Your experiences have established character and a level of maturity otherwise unattainable. Rejoice in your survival!  In the coming season simplicity will lead to the profound. Refuse to allow complications to take you off course. Your task is to eliminate distractions in order to gain spiritual depth. That will mean a shift in focus from satisfying fleshly desire to developing a spiritual desire to be one with the spirit of the Lord. This shift in desire will require discipline and self-control, but the outcome will be worth your effort. For, you will certainly see the manifestation of God’s glory as you continue to seek first the kingdom of God.  Maximize every opportunity to be in the LORD’S presence. Don’t be afraid to exercise your faith. The Spirit will make a very clear distinction between presumption and a faith, which cannot be shaken or dissuaded. You will know exactly where you stand and what to do.  If you will put your trust completely in the LORD, you will experience true unity. This is a season when you will no longer stretch up as on your tiptoes to try to understand revelation or to see and discern as an external exercise. Rather, you will become one with the Lord as he is one with the Father, and you will know spiritual reality—not as something to be received or attained, but as a result of being joined to the LORD’S heart. It will be the overflow of intimacy.  Take advantage of every moment available to seek God’s face, hear His voice, and obey His leading. Plant the seed of a spiritual desire to yield completely and instantly to the moving of Holy Spirit. Demonstrate the kingdom. Do your job with excellence and confidence. You will not be disappointed, says the Lord God Almighty!  And, we say yes and amen; let it be according to Your Word, Lord!    Apostle Kimberly Nixon

PROPHETIC ACUITY

Acuity - sharpness or keenness of thought; vision or hearing; ability to discern fine detail


Amos 9:13-15 The Message (MSG)
13-15 “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:

And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.

They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”

God, your God, says so.

The Sufficiency of God's Strength

The Sufficiency of God's Strength

The Sufficiency of God’s Strength 

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

[9] And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. [10] Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 TPT

But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you,[a] and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.[b] 10 So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.

The Lord spoke to my heart recently while in prayer and said; 

“My strength is made perfect (complete; comes to its fullness only in your inability (weakness).  My strength will always take you to the finish.  I’ll be there when you get there. My strength does not have to compete with your strength for mastery because it is complete.  There is no insufficiency in my strength and ability.  My strength is only matured and perfected in your weakness. My strength grows as your strength lessens.” We don’t experience God’s strength until we encounter our true weakness. When we  are working from our ability , the supernatural strength of God is harnessed and unable to be released to reign. Gods strength is sufficient for the struggle before it is supplied.  We can’t make provision for our flesh fights.  Jesus, through the cross, provided the provision for our escape. If you continue  in your strength, the strength of God can not be maximally manifest.  Lean completely on God’s strength and allow Him to preserve yours.

Under His Mercy,

Apostle Nixon

“COMPLIANCE CAN BE WISDOM!”

“COMPLIANCE CAN BE WISDOM!”

COMPLIANCE CAN BE WISDOM!

For the Lord takes delight in his people;

     He crowns the humble with victory.  

Psalms 149:4 NIV

These past few days have been filled with the unexpected and the unwanted!  The hurricane wasted no time devastating the lives of so many people.  From evacuations to trees falling to power outages, everyone felt the wrath of the wind.  As tumultuous as the experience was, the grace of God yet prevailed.  Our rest must be in relying upon Gods power and His total control.

Many of us were spared and able to manage our challenges.  However, when the wind and the rain ceased, the aftermath has proven to be just as catastrophic. Many of the roads are closed and water has covered areas that were once visible and served as navigating landmarks.

Law enforcement has been stationed to try to warn travelers of pending danger ahead.  It’s understandable to experience frustration when one is not able to go forward with their previous plans and have to seek an alternate unknown route.  But forging forward in the face of imminent danger after clear warning is a sign of pride on parade and risky rebellion.

There are experiences and encounters in life where “compliance is the way of wisdom”.

The human nature can tempt one to persist in their planned path, however, the risk and outcome can take a route that leads to ruin.  Sitting with a storm can be so unsettling and full of anxiety to say the least. We must trust that Jesus cares about our end state and has not lost His full vigilance of our situation.

There will continue to be unexpected storms and closed roadways in this walk of life. Always remember that healthy compliance and wisdom always finds a way through.  As life returns to routine and normal, make sure your house and affairs are in order and you are insured and assured with eternal life. It is the only true safe refuge.

Romans 10:8-10 KJV

[8] But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [9] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. [10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Under His Mercy,

DON'T STAY TOO LONG!

Comment

DON'T STAY TOO LONG!

“DON’T STAY TOO LONG!”

Exodus 14:15

[15] The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry to Me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward!

Standing still might appear to be familiar and sometimes safe, but it can’t exceed its appointed time.  God makes everything beautiful in the confines of His timing. However, just as He spoke repositioning to the children of Israel after the death of Moses and when they were being pursued by Pharaoh, He will require forward movement in the life of every believer.

Moving forward can be so uncertain and risky.  It can be without rational understanding and ultimately scary. But when it comes from the heart and plan of God, it is a matter of death or divine destiny. Perhaps its time to stop crying and move forward. God knows the way you must take.

Relying On the Lord,

Apostle

Hope Hospice Return

August 18, 2018

IMG_0486.JPG

Our mission team spent the earlier part of the day at Hope Hospice here in Montego Bay Jamaica. It is always a bitter sweet experience and our hearts are somewhat on a pause to see who remains and who has transitioned to be with the Lord.  They are so full of hope and yet praise God in spite of their situation.  Their smiles show the sweet communion of God’s imprint resting on their journey.

There was a most precious woman residing there who was one hundred and two years old.  She was sharp in her thinking and had glistening silver and white hair. Her ability  to walk on her own and reflect on the goodness of God was breath taking.  What a mighty God we serve in every season of our lives.

As we sang and shared in devotion with them, they worshipped beyond their terminal illnesses.  The nurses joined in and one played her tambourine as an exuberant expression of praise. We left our love and donations with plans to return in the near future to facilitate staff training.  The call and commission upon our church is being walked out in faith, leaning on the Lord!

“JACOB’S WELL CHURCH”

August 17, 2018

IMG_0690.JPG

Just inside of Trelawny Jamaica you will find a portal of God’s heaven open over a tabernacle of worship.  We have been fortunate to partner in ministry with Bishop Earle and his wonderful body of believers at Jacobs Well Church.  They are passionately in pursuit of the manifest presence of Almighty God.  There is an evident move and manifestation of growth and grace in the atmosphere.

We started our 2018 mission the second night of our assignment with a leadership focus and ministering to leaders in the community.  Our theme was, “Leading Well; Living Long & Loosing The Captives”.  The response was both phenomenal and encouraging.  On last night, the Lord ministered healing and deliverance in our midst at Jacobs Well. The hunger and receptiveness to the move of the prophetic Word was amazing.  Tonight we will go a little further and press in for greater glory.

IMG_0463.JPG

Agree with us for saving of souls, miracles, and mighty deeds while here in Jamaica .  He that has begun a great work in us shall perform it completely .  Keep looking up, your deliverance is at hand.  Behold God’s goodness in what might appear to be gloomy and seemingly hopeless.  All of our help comes from the Lord!  HE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!

JAMAICA MISSION “TAKE C.A.R.E.” 2018: TAKING COMPASSION, ASSISTANCE, RESTORATION & ENCOURAGEMENT

IMG_0665.jpeg

Looking out over this Caribbean Sea, I’m assured that Gods reach is vast and victorious. Today was our first full international mission encounter at West Haven Children’s Home.  The children were so happy and excited to see us arrive and eagerly awaited our exiting of the bus. They were ready to embrace us and select one of us to hug, tug and walk with during our visit. They were not graciously groomed or pleasantly scented to ones preference.  However, they were adorable to the soul and precious to the heart of God.

I always feel close to God when I am in the company of these chosen children.  John’s Gospel informs us that some conditions exist for the works of God to be made manifest. We were sent to West Haven Children’s Home to manifest the works of God through presence and touch among those who are the expression of God’s heart.

IMG_0676.jpeg

As we sang with the children, I experienced the love and nature of God. They were totally free of any need to sound any particular way vocally. They changed their volume and tone as often as they changed their posture. They loved being loud and enjoyed moving to the beat.  Whenever we would stop one song after singing several verses, a child would yell out; “again”!

They wanted the music and the melody to continue. They couldn’t get enough of the joy.

If we would allow ourselves, we would also yearn for continuous fellowship and joyful encounters with the Lord and others. As I consider some of the children that were disabled and had no physical mobility, the love of God yet reached them through the melody of missions and music.  Come journey with us as we serve all God’s children while here in Jamaica.

SHALOM,

Apostle Nixon
