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 reversal of noah's destruction
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
Over the past few months the Holy Spirit has been instructing me to pray for ‘Righteousness to rain down and Righteousness to spring up.’ I have been dutifully praying this prayer, both with my mind and with my spirit, but not being fully aware of its significance. As I was seeking the Lord for a word to blog tonight he said tonight is the time and season when we will explain the meaning of these words. But I sense the meaning was not only for me but for all who choose to read this blog. As I am wont to do, I first of all go to the scriptures to discover if a phrase or idea that has come to be in a prophetic sense, lines up with scripture. And Wham, Bang to my surprise and delight these words are found in Isaiah 45. It would be a lie to say that my spirit did not soar as I......
Break outs are coming
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
The word today from the Holy Spirit is ‘Break Out.’ Break out from your graves. Break out from your prison cell. Break out into another pathway. Break out into another level of authority. Break out into a higher level of walking with the Lord. Break out into a more ‘Christ-like’ thinking pattern.’ to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. Isaiah 42:7 Yes: Break out, is the word from the Lord in this time of transitions and realignments; for as we wait on the Lord of Hosts with eager expectation, the winds of the spirit will blow out the prison doors. Now is the time to look up and seek the Lord in this time of refreshing for the gates of the citadel are about to swing open. Now is the......
Move the mountain
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
The word of the Lord to the faithful who stand day and night in his presence is – ‘Move the mountain – Move the Mountain.’ The mountains that come before you are to be made smooth and the valleys are to be filled in. This is a time of advancement and nothing will stand in the way of my servants says the Lord. Call out to the mountain that stands in your way and say, ‘Be moved for I am a child of God.’ Use the authority that I have given you in the name of Jesus and remove the blockages before you, for my name and word will prevail. Now is the time to take hold of my authority and use it to break down the strong holds and irons that have bound you, for this is a season break outs, of loosening and breaking free into your destiny. I have given you......
Stand tall and do not be intimidated
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I Jesus Christ are with you no matter what you see, hear or understand, for these temporary afflictions and distractions do not change my word to you – ‘I will never leave you.’ Do not focus on the world’s events and the wrongs that come against you and the afflictions that piece your soul. I the Lord Jesus Christ do not tease you for I am with you always and my word is true. Believe my promises form my word for they will be strength and food to your heat and medicine to your body. Do not focus on the distractions that are buzzing like bees around your head. I say to you, says the Holy Spirit, ‘Do not dwell on the storms and wild waves as the disciples displayed when Jesus was asleep in the boat.’ My word says that even if the mountains crumble and fall......
Breakthrough time to ride on the high places with god
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
I pray that this blog will speak hope into your heart for the Lord is saying lift up your eyes and rejoice for I am coming soon in chariots of fire. Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1 The cries and prayers of saints past and present are being answered for the doors of righteousness are being opened and the light and glory of the Lord will burst forth. As I hovered over the darkness long ago so I will soon hover over the darkness of the cities and bring a new creation upon the nations. The nations belong to me says the Lord and I am about to release my glory upon them and release their wealth to my son and daughters. This is a time of rejoicing for as I brought forth water in the desert so to will I bring forth my living water from......
Rightly dividing the bible
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I deeply believe that in these last days with the multitude of voices coming over the air waves via TV and social mediums that we discern the truth. We also need to be conscious of the voices that are clamouring for our attention that we know for sure that they are rightly dividing the word of truth. These two statements are so important, for in this time there are many believers who are being tossed to and fro by what they are hearing to be the word of the Lord. The enemy is making hay with these many opinions that are out there in the jungle of words claiming to be truth for our times. There is much that the believer can do to guard themselves from these wolf words that come as gentle lambs. Jesus has said that his sheep know his voice and they will follow him. Yes this is correct but......
A sincere wrongful conclusion of the nations
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
It is so easy to come to the wrong conclusion when one looks at the state of this planet. It is so obvious that the world is in a precarious balance with the moral slide not abating. There is conflict everywhere as peace and brotherhood is a long distance dream in those who worked hard for unity. The church is ineffective and full of tares and the dream of the bride of Christ being ready is not yet close to be ready. This depressing picture of the world has given birth to a movement that teaches and preaches doom and gloom upon the nations. The world is doomed and Gods judgement is about to be visited upon the earth and the apostate church. There is no hope for the earth, as Gods wrath is about to be released. There is so much negativity and harshness in this view point that is being......
These two issues are burning me up
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
There are two issues at present that torment my soul and cause my spirit to burn. As Jesus said, ‘My spirit is troubled within me.’ Whenever I read or hear of these two being taught, spoken, preached or spoken as a prophetic utterance I feel saddened and troubled. Many times I have cried out to God to forgive those who are espousing these words for they know not what they are doing. Firstly there are some who are changing the good news of the gospel to one of judgment and harshness, born not out of love but, a misplaced righteousness. Yes I know that there are sinners who will be lost to the kingdom. Yes I know that the church is not perfect and many have lost their first love. But turning the gospel of hope and salvation into a judgemental stick is not the gospel that I read......
The key of hope and keys of delight
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I believe in my spirit that were are on the cusp of a move forward in Gods plans, when we will see signs and wonders of his shaking and cleaning among the nations. The enemy is still fighting back at the move of Gods four chariots, which are stepping forth into the Lords time plan. There are still much disasters and upheavals to come among the nations, before the full hand of God will be revealed to an unbelieving and astonished world. Again the trumpet call has gone out to summon Gods warriors to battle, to be on the front line of Christ’s army. This army will begin to retake the nations that were promised to Gods people, but through the religious spirit which has invaded the church, this promise has not been fulfilled. But now is the time and seasons of Gods callingfor he is......
Testing the spirits
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world 1 John 4:1 I am concerned that with the increase in the prophetic word and the proliferation of prophecy, that God is truly raising up in these last days; that discernment and wisdom is lacking among Gods people. One of my greatest fears is that when the Lord lays a prophetic word upon my spirit that I remain true to the flow of grace upon my heart. I am so aware that my thoughts and biases can creep in without me knowing. In all sincerity, there can be aspects of my prophetic word that is not from the heart of God. Since I am aware of this so called ‘false word’ I am all the more discerning when I hear and read other......
