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......

This is a time of marching forward into the purposes of God for this month of March is the time and season of new things coming forth. This is the time of a fresh outpouring of Gods comfort and joy as the bride readies herself for the coming. This is the month of miracles working for the glory of God to fall on the Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Evangelists and Pastors. For in the days to come we must be ready to march into the inheritance that he been prepared for us. This is the time of new visions, dreams and prophetic writings and blogs. This is a time of regeneration and redemption; a time for the Bride of Christ to once more ascend into the calling that we have been called to. This is a month of movement forward as we cross the barriers that have been erected against the breath of......
Jonah as a sign of the last days
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
I believe that the Lord is speaking powerfully across all nations, races and groups as never before. I sense in my spirit that there is increased activity in the heavens that will ultimately fall onto the earth. I also sense that the enemy is increasing his anger, hatred and violence, more so among the younger generation. There is coming a clash of the swords that will impact across the nations leaving no person untouched. We can see this upheaval in activity and changes in all levels of our society including, the USA, Briton, Europe, China to name a few nations. As we listen or view the news we can see earthquake cracks appearing in the politics of a number of nations that has many financial experts on tender hooks. It is into this heavenly activity orchestrated by the Lord of Hosts that......
A prophetic word of encouragement to my people
John Knox+
published . 1 min read
The Holy Spirit is saying that my people are praying to me with their lips but their hearts are far from me. But despite the churches lose of their first love the Lords anger has been stayed. For the covenant of blood upon the cross of my Son I will once more astound my people says the Lord. For I say unto you that the eyes that cannot read my word and hears that cannot see my voice will once more be astounded by my mercies. Wonder upon wonder will be bestowed on my bride for I will honour the promises that I have decreed through my servants the prophets. Therefore rejoice my redeemed for I am coming to you to set you free from oppression and infirmities. Your wisdom will vanish as my people once again will learn of me and be taught by me. Your man-formed knowledge will be blown away by......
Battle plans and strategies for spiritual warfare
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
A few days back one on my blogger friends Barbara Kankowske @barbkaye, wrote an insightful blog concerning the rise of Satan, which I believe is compulsory reading for all on CB. In essence the blog reminds us to sound the trumpet as we are at war with the principalities, powers of darkness and demonic forces. No longer can we ignore that there are evil forces at work to humiliate and cease the presidency of D Trump. There are reports that witches are casting spells on D Trump. Then again the spirit of Leviathan, which I believe is controlling the news and media are blatantly twisting the news concerning the presidency. Never before I believe has there been so much hostility and hate directed towards the White House. The body of Christ is being called to warfare, to take on the full amour......
Does god hear our prayers

The closer that I come into the Fathers house; the more I press into his heart; the clearer I hear his prophetic voice I realize how inadequate my spiritual understanding is. Where once I was confident in my knowledge of Gods ways and methods, I now know for sure, that I was as a new born babe. Where once I had a good ‘head knowledge’ of Biblical matters, I now have come to the conclusion my knowledge was like the morning mist. All week long the Holy Spirit has been saying to me, ‘I need to teach you to pray.’ Yes I realized, for by now I had put away my arrogance in repentance and accepted the Holy Spirits words. It never does too good to think that you can ‘out run’ God. As I was dwelling on these weighty matters I knew this was a blog that needed to......
Healing according to jesus
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
I wish to draw out three simple truths from Luke’s gospel of the ten lepers that were healed. We can read this from Luke 17:11-19. 11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 2 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 3 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 6 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. 17 Jesus asked, ‘Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 8 Has no one returned to give......
Healing the new testament method
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
I wish to begin this blog with an example of the author and finisher of our Faith; Jesus Christ himself. As he was coming to the close of his ministry there is a verse that sums up the attitude, that I believe he wishes us to bring into our struggles, sicknesses and tribulations. It is found in Luke 9:51 where the KJV reads ‘he set his face steadfastly to go to Jerusalem.’ Jesus faced the greatest hour of his trail with determination and conviction that God his Father would not let him down. We have been given the mind of Christ; therefore we are to contend with God over our sickness with determination, conviction and utter belief that we will be healed. I have set out in my blog ‘Contending for our Healing – part two,’ the steps this entails. In my last blog......
Healing myths exposed
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
The scriptures are clear that the gifts of the spirit, which are listed in 1 Corinthians 12, are for the edification and the building up of the body of Christ. Therefore we have the following chapters setting out Paul’s concerns that such manifestation of the gifts are done in an orderly and proper manner. We are all aware that there are counterfeit gifts that operate so closely to the gifts from the Holy Spirit that it is difficult to discern between the two. In fact I believe it has been documented that such ‘bogus’ gifts can operate under the authority of the church of God. Such is the ability of the enemy to deceive the children of God. All this is by way of an introduction to the subject of healing that has caused endless heartache and discouragement over the......
Contending for our health - part two
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
Strategies to enjoy Healing This bog flows on from part one of the same title, in which I outlined the case for the requirement, that all who are disciples of Jesus need to cooperate with God in their ongoing salvation. I endeavored to support this with passages of scripture showing that we are in a covenant relationship and we have our responsibilities to work with God. If you have not read that blog it may be wise to do so before proceeding with this blog. I will attempt in this blog to outline the pro active cooperation that is expected of us in regards to safe guarding our calling and finishing the race. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. 2 Peter 1:10 These steps include the responsibilities that I......
Contending for our health part one.
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
This thought rattled me the other day as I heard this quoted by Doug Addison for I realized that this was the answer to my prayers as to the next blog. As I listened to the Holy Spirit over the nest days I realized that this ‘contending’ was the modus operandi that I had been using over my battle concerning my prostate. As they say the pieces began to fall the right way up. Also this revelation can easily flow on from my series on Genesis 22 in that we all have at certain times mountains to climb. As I began my research I came across three verses in the NIV New Testament that use the word contending. The first two are from Colossians 1:29-Colossians 2:1 To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me. I want you to know how hard I am......
