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......

Living in the heavenlies
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
The Holy Spirit wishes to remind us that our position in Christ is located in the throne room of our Father.  For we have been ransomed from this earth and transformed to be seated with Christ; who is seated on the right hand of the Father.  Our positional rightful place is on the right side of the Father far above all dominion power and authority.  The word tells us that all things have been placed under the feet of Jesus and since we are in Christ, seated in the heavenlies, we to have all things under our feet. As the faithful witnesses of Hebrews 11 longed for another dwelling place whose foundations where made by God, we to are called and encouraged to seek the things that are above where our heart is.  As we sit on our throne we are to reckon that we have died to sin and earthly......
3 things i have learned about god the older i've gotten
John Knox+

I will plunge straight in with the following hits on the nose that have woken me up.   1/ No matter how much I kid myself I really do not know how to pray.  Therefore, I have found that praying in the spirit is the only way to be sure that my prayers are Gods prayers. 2/ You cannot win every battle for as Ephesians 6 reminds us; we wrestle not against flesh and blood. 3/ God is always close by even if we do not perceive his presence.  Why am I so confident?  Because he often leaves us with love notes as he nudges circumstances in our favour.  Unfortunately, we miss most of these moments. Am I the first?...
Marching forward step by step.
John Knox+

I am being reminded that we are soldiers of the Living God with Christ as our commander in Chief.  Sometimes we forget that we are part of a victorious army for we slouch around like Gideon unsure of our calling in Christ.  For we have been called in love to live a life of conquering soldiers afraid of no enemy.  We have been commanded to stand and having done all we are to still stand.  We are to stand tall, shoulders back, stomach in and our head held high. As we stand tall in his word we will become aware of the powerful authority we have because we are in the army of Jesus.  For in the name of Jesus we have been given all authority.  ALL authority over the enemy for we can walk over scorpions and through the fires of the enemy.  We can say to the mountain Be removed. Therefore,......
Turning back the time
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
As I was waiting on the Lord, I head the Holy Spirit say that I am turning back time upon my people for as I turned back the shadow ten steps in Hezekiah s day; I can buy back time for my children.   The Lord says that which overcomes you now will not lead to death but will rebound to the glory of God and his Son Jesus.  To those who have long forgotten dreams, un fulfilled prophecies that have lain in the dust step out again for I have turned back time for you to have a second chance.  For am I not a God of Life says the Lord? Lift your hands and ask the ruach of God to breathe once again into your abandoned desires so that they may raise up; so that, what was once, can be brought back to life.  God is the God who can call things into being and bring life to the lifeless pulling the......
Retaking the promised land
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I strongly believe that there is a partnership between driving out demons and the Kingdom of God advancing among us.  Jesus alluded to this when his enemies were accusing him of casting out in the name of Beelzebul as recorded in Matthew 12. I have been captivated by this concept of the advancement of the Kingdom as I have been listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit, for it is an integral part of the great commission.   This involves community exorcism.  By this I mean more than individual ministry at an alter call; but rather in the same manner of Joshua retaking the land and routing out the enemies.  As Joshua led his band of dedicated believers/warriors to establish Gods kingdom in the promised land, we to have such a calling.  We are called to make disciples of nations,......
The mantle of anointing
John Knox+
published . 1 min read
In the next few days the Lord of hosts will throw his mantle over you, for we are about to enter a time of preparation and transition. Those who are pressing into the Lords presence and not seeing much change in the atmosphere, look up for the mantle of authority and power is about to be draped over your shoulders.  Now is the time for the release of the breaker anointing. Now is not the time to look down or look back, or to grow weary and faint with no hope in your heart.  Do not listen to the roar of the enemy   Put no trust in your flesh for the flesh will let you down and over turn your spirit each time.  The enemy may roar and stomp outside your tent, but he cannot come in for he is on the Lords leash. During this time of walking in the valley of death your footsteps are......
Stomping and the 2nd reformation
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
Each time that I come before the Lord I have a vision of boots stomping across the land as in an army marching to battle.  I first thought was to turn my mind to Jericho and the Israelites marching around the city wall.  But as I pressed in closer to the Fathers heart this did not seem to fit as there was an unease with this understanding.  At this point of understanding the Fathers will it is easy to become confused and not hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, hence delusion can easily set in. But having lived with the voice of the Shepherd for many years I was able to press into a deeper call to wisdom and discernment.  In doing so I perceived that the stomping boots were the enemy marshalling their forces to lay siege against the church.  This revelation did not come suddenly but......
500th anniversary - just past by
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
  October 31st has passed and gone but how many of us in Christendom gave a thought to this day being the 5ooth anniversary of the reformation.  On that day 5oo years ago Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis on the door of the church in Wittenberg and thus began the protestant movement.  Did anyone remember this and celebrate Gods intervention and give praise for the restoration of justification by faith alone? Or were we consumed with Halloween?  That celebration of all that is black and demonic that has no place in the heart of a Christian.  The two week leading up to October 31 I and many other soldiers of Christ have been under spiritual demonic witch craft attack.  And some in the church celebrate that! It is no coincidence that Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the......
Praise and worship first blessing are secondary
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
As I was worshipping the other day in my home, the Holy Spirit said ever so clearly: The Glory of the Lord brings Blessings.  As these words were spoken into my mind I realized the truth and importance of this and found that my spirit was heightened as Gods presence filled me.  I have since thought about this phrase over the last few days and in fact I incorporated these words into a sentence of my last posting.  But I have sensed in my spirit that the Lord wishes to expand this message into my mind so that I can pass onto those who belong to this site. As I have pondered this phrase and pressed into the Fathers heart for deeper understanding I have realized these words are a caution rather than a warning.  When I sense a red flag from the Holy Spirit I tend to back off and wait for......
The glory of the lord will cover the earth
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
As waves roll upon the shore in endless succession so to will the glory of the Lord be released upon the earth over the coming years s the prophets before us as predicted. This move of God will be preceded by an unprecedent season of transition in the life of every warrior, church and nation. Presently we are in the time and season of the open door of Gods favour that is being upon those who have eyes to see and hears to hear of the plans of the Father. At this point it is worthy to delve deeper into the meaning of the English word Glory, as for many in the church, as is typical of biblical terms, it has been watered down. In Hebrew the word glory is rendered by two words. Kavod is the more common Hebrew word which literally means weight suggesting that a King has much wealth, power and......
