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......

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......
Use your god given authority
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
It is time to take control of your life, for if you do not, someone or circumstances will rule over you. Most likely these ‘other rulers’ will not have your best interests at heart. From my experience only the God of the Bible has a plan for us that will cause us to prosper and be over comers. But we have to first show that we mean business with God before he will help us. Is this a radical thought? Far too many of Gods believers sit around waiting for God to act and solve their problems. God is not a wizard. Despite this knowledge many Christians expect God to act like a benevolent wizard. ‘Poof’ and all will be OK. Sometimes their prayers will reflect this attitude. We need to realize that God and we are in a partnership; for the moment we were born again and......
Cry out today for my wisdom
John Knox+
published . 1 min read
Cry out for wisdom my people for wisdom is standing in your path and she will be your companion. Do not seek after your own wisdom for this is foolishness for my wisdom will bring understanding and clarity to you in this hour. Seek out wisdom, press into my wisdom says the Lord, for I freely give of my wisdom to those who hunger and thirst for my understanding. For my wisdom will be the Key of David that will unlock the door to heaven. I say to those who are weary and burdened with the cares of this world, stop reasoning and seek my wisdom. My wisdom is not hidden but stands on the street corners Wisdom is crying out to be asked into your home; do you hear her cry says the Lord? Turn your ear to my wisdom for wisdom is the beginning of understanding and the acquiring of my presence says......
The big misconception
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
Sin is an ugly word that we all know what it means yet we do not know what it means. We rightly understand the meaning of sin according to the wisdom of this world. We in the church who worship the Lord have unwittingly taken the meaning of sin according to the word to be the biblical meaning. But I sense in my spirit that the Lord looks down and shakes his head as we can so often call sin by our standards. In the book of Zachariah was called by the Lord to take a plumb line to the nation of Israel. As he did so the nation fell short of the standards the Lord expected from his covenant people. I believe that if we were open and honest with a humble heart as we began to study Gods word we would come up with an earthquake shake. WE would discover that what we call OK, righteous and good God......
The rising danger of todays prophetic voice
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I do not believe that any serious Christian cannot read the signs that we are in the last days before the Lords return. What may be in dispute is the rise in the five fold ministries that are being restored to their rightful place in the Body of Christ. As I see it, this is Gods preparing of the Bride to walk in the end time plans that have been ordained for her. The prophetic voice is one of the more remarkable and notable ministries that have been restored to the church. It is as if the plea of Paul in his letter to the Corinthians of his wish to eagerly strive after the gifts especially prophecy, is being fulfill. But as I have been rejoicing in the this gift that the Lord has bestowed upon many believers, myself included, I was warned by the Holy Spirit of Danger ahead. Why is this?......
How to capture the forth coming renascence
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
This blog flow on from my last blog on the forthcoming move of God that I am convinced is not far away, in fact, I believe the winds of the Spirit from God are starting to gather typhoon strength. Did you find my blog title interesting? Intriguing, Puzzling or completely ‘whako?’ I purposefully chose the word capture to be the title, for I believe that this next move of the Holy Spirit will pass many believers by. Why? Simply because this move of God will not be as we imagine and expect such a revival to be. God has been very clear over the last few years from the mouths of the prophets that this move of Gods spirit will be a new thing. These blessings will come upon the nations in a different manner than in the past revivals. Therefore for us to be a participant in......
Why i believe a renascence is close by.
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
I believe that something mega is going down in heaven that will reach over the earth. I have been sensing in my spirit that the Lord of Hosts is about to release a new initiative across the nations. I have been hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking along similar lines that excite and stir my heart. I have reading of prophetic words online that are ‘singing from the same hymn book;’ that we are on the cusp of a mighty mega work of God. Those reading this blog that are attuned to the move of the Lord of Hosts in these times and seasons will also have a quickening of your spirit as you read the above. For the Holy Spirit will bear witness. It has also been brought to my attention that this Sunday is Pentecost Sunday when we acknowledge the out pouring of the Holy Spirit......
Three different ways god will reveal himself
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
If you will bear with me for a few moments I wish to lead you on a theological pathway concerning a central tenet of our faith. It is my recollection that the God of the Bible is the only deity that reveals himself to mankind. I believe, if I remember my theological studies for this to be true. Other faiths speak about their god(s) in a distant manner; certainly not in a self manifestation manner of seeing their god(s) face to face. This is not true of the Old and New Testaments for one cannot escape the fact that the God of both testaments is a revealing God. Beginning with the story of creation, and closing with the Parousia, God meets with, and speaks to mankind his creation. God reveals himself to Adam; he came to Noah and Abraham and shows himself to the children of Israel through......
Lift up your eyes thirsty ones
John Knox+

A prophetic word of encouragement. Saturday 27th May 10pm NZST The Lord says to those who are in a dry and barren place, ‘Let down your nets on the other side for I will cause the doors of heaven to open and you will enter in.’ May we not rely on our human wisdom and understanding when we are in the desert places. John 21. ‘When I lead my Children out through the desert there was no room for rational understanding for I feed my people and cared for them,’ says the Lord. I believe this is the time and season that requires the departure of conventional wisdom. ‘This is the time in our spiritual walk when we can no longer say I have tried this or that for as I said to Simon Peter to let down his net on the other side.’ ‘In obedience to me he put his......
The difference between milk faith and meat faith.
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
When I was growing up my mother used to quote a number of sayings, most often when she was trying to ‘teach me a lesson.’ I have to admit that even now I cannot recall many of Mums pithy quotes, but one does stick in my mind. I guess this is because I have used the same ‘proverb’ to my own children. ‘Actions speak louder than words.’ How true this is. Not only in the natural but more so in the spiritual. Jesus had many a harsh word to say to the religious leaders of his day for their hypocritical manner of teaching. I would estimate that most of today’s disciples of Christ’s would claim that their actions match their words. I too would have laid claim to this thought but over the years and being placed in the furnace of God I have seen that......
