Finding Rest In God
published . 3 min read
I had a bad night last night as I seemed to be awake most of the night unable to rest and go to sleep. I am sure that I am not alone with this dilemma. But thankfully this does not happen to me often but when it does I tend to worry. As I lay there in bed, with the darkness closing in around me and my mind going through all the 'what ifs.' What if I cannot go to sleep. What if there is something wrong with me. What if I cannot function in the morning. As I lay there desperately hoping to go to sleep it came to me; is this the kind of faith and trust that God expects of his children? The answer that came to me is probably not, for although I said that I trusted in God to see me through I was not at peace. As these thoughts filtered through into my heart I was made aware by the Holy......

The jewish year 5778
John Knox+
published . 1 min read
We have now entered in the Jewish New Year of 5778, where the numerical Eight represents life, new beginnings and an open door. Hence we have come into the year of the Gateway to Life and Light. Since the two sevens are still with us, we will expect to encounter the continuing clash of the swords of persecution of spiritual battles. But the Lord says to us – ‘I have set before you an open door and have laid on your shoulders the Key of David.’ I have given you wisdom, understanding and the ability to hear my voice says the Lord so that you will find the open door that I have placed before you.’ O Father I pray that you may grant us discernment to walk through the correct door called the door of Holy Grace, may we not stumble to the left or right has we set our face......
Join with me in prayer and fight for cb
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
The hand of the Lord was upon me and he led me to Ezekiel 37 and he said to me, “Can CB stand and live?” I said, ‘I pray that it may be so but only you know Lord.” The Holy Sprit has encouraged me to prophesy over CB as in Ezekiel 37 and therefore I say in the name of Jesus; Breath upon the dry bones of CB that they may rise up and live once more. I say to the spirit of disruption and sabotage be bound in the name of Jesus and I declare CB a holy place dedicated to the Lord. My last blog indicated that we were facing a battle and we should be prepared, but this outage of CB even caught me by surprise at the suddenness of the enemies attack to steal, kill, and destroy the blessings that CB has been to so many individuals across the nations. I stand with the blog......
Warfare is at hand be prepared today
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
All week as I have been praying the word from the Holy Spirit has been – ‘Bend It.’ This has been repeated into my spirit constantly every time I have entered into the throne room of our Father. I have never had such a persistent word from the Lord. I immediately thought of the need for our spirits to be flexible and willing to bend to the will and wind of the Holy Spirit. But as I pressed into this understanding I began to feel unease that this was not the message I needed to hear. As I continued to meditate and ponder on this word which did not let up – ‘Bend it; Bend it; Bend it.’ I reasoned that maybe this was speaking of the yoke and burden of Christ that is easy and light. Again this did not seem to sit easy with my spirit as there was no settled......
I am rejoicing in the aftermath of irma
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
My thoughts and prayers are with the good folks of Florida. Even though I am one of the furtherest by distance, my heart went out to those who have been traumatised, as if I was there with those devastated families. The images on our local news bulletins caused my spirit to cry out to our heavenly Father. So much so that I was able under the Holy Spirits dictation to pen the last blog. I still stand by word that I released on this site in that last blog and along with other believers, we bent our knees and hearts before the Lord of Hosts, asking for the Lord of the wind to overcome the hurricane. We were not willing to allow the fury and anger of the enemy to destroy and kill Gods plans of revival and reformation alignment across the land. We kept these verse s from James 5:16 and Mark......
Irma and her sisters will be our jericho
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
Even though the enemy has planned that Irma and her sister hurricanes are to steal, kill and destroy the plans that God in his love and grace is about to release on the land, this will not happen. I believe that God is using these winds and waves to call the remnant in the body of Chris to mobilize ourselves to warfare prayer. I believe very clearly and I have this from the Lord, that these hurricanes will be used by God to stir up the church, those disciples that have ears to ear, and use their God given authority. God will mobilize his church so that the body of Christ will be ready for the assignments that the Lord has planned for this New Year. I believe that the Holy Spirit will use these strong winds and waves that were meant to bring confusion and panic among his people and de rail......
O sea and land hear the word of the lord
John Knox+

The Lord calls us to stand up and prophesy to the storm – Be still and dissipate; be sucked into the great hole that has been prepared for you. I hear the Holy Sprit reminding the body of Christ that we have been give authority over all things. I hear the Holy Spirit calling to those believers who have the mind of Christ and are resting in his peace in the stern. Now is the time says the Lord to stand up and rebuke the winds and waves for I am not in the hurricane. Look to me says the Lord of Hosts, not to the waves and winds for I will not be found in them. Stand under my name and be firm unmoveable in my love and grace with praise and thanksgiving being found upon your lips. Put on Christ and stand up in the rocking boat stretch out your hand and watch my power and grace at work.......
Lord guard our mind what we think
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
Did you know that we have died to our negative thoughts for they were buried with Christs death? We have died in Christ leaving behind the fleshy dominated thinking that ruled our life before we were raised to newness of life. I was reminded of this the other day as my prostate flared up again and I was about to revert to my earthly negative thinking. Before I could wonder why Gods power and grace had abandoned me and before I spoke out this curse of death the Holy Spirit checked my speech. I have been on a training course of how our speech not only affects others – the topic on my previous blog, but how our negative thinking brings a curse over our life. Thoughts such as: I am too weak, I am too poor; I am no use to God; I am not spiritual enough; I do not have much faith; I am......
The choice of our speech
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I am sure that we all know the power of our words and comments that we direct to others can either bless or curse them to use biblical terminology. Our words have long lasting effects on others, either being positive encouragement bringing pleasure, or negative and a millstone around that person’s neck. This is true in the spiritual realm as well as the secular, for one can read many articles entitled ‘mind power’ and ‘visualization’ along with the classic; ‘The power of positive thinking.’ How many times have we witnessed the sad story of parents who continually told their child that they would not amount to much and teachers who often would put certain children down, as being not ‘bright enough.’ As these children grow into adults......
A prophecy to houston
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
Along with an explanation of Harvey O Houston O Houston how have I laboured over you, how have I cared for you, how have I wept over you, but you have gone your own way. In your arrogance you said we will do things our way. In your haughtiness you turned a deaf ear to me and ceased to listen. You have not allowed righteousness to spring forth and justice is not carried out in the streets. Yet I will not abandon you for I still care for you, my back is not turned away from you, for my eyes remain steadfast on you says the Lord. Look to me for soon you will see my light shinning on you as I begin to blow my winds across your land. Soon you will see my glory shinning upon you and your face will be radiant. This will be a time a rejoicing not only for you my city but for all the land, as I......
Kings and priests
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
You have made them (Believers) to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.” Rev 5:10 I am only beginning to slowly and tentively grasp the implications of this verse. We have been given a mandate from our Father the moment we where born again. We have been appointed and commissioned as ambassadors of the King of heaven. As representatives we have been appointed as Kings and Priests of our kingdom. As I am beginning to understand the kingdom that has been allocated to us, is the place where we live and work. This geographical area is the kingdom that we have been given and by royal decree from heaven, we are the King and Priest of our land. Our job description is to create a kingdom of righteousness within our neighbourhood and work place. As......
