Taking a Leap of Faith...

Posted on July, 2008 by "the witness"

4 Months ago the Lord showed gave me a brilliant idea to start a newsletter to reveal according to His grace that which He has been teaching and revealing to me.

One and half years ago, 26th of January 2002, the Lord gave me a dream about a plough that ploughed the earth and made certain cycles until finally I to would be able to be fruitful to the Lord Yahshua the Messiah. During the week I asked the Lord to show me where in that dream I am currently, because lately I have been receiving word from all directions that my ministry was about to begin. I asked the Lord to show me where in the dream I was now? Praise God, because on the 16th October 2003 He gave me a dream. I call it "Taking a Leap of Faith"!

In this dream the Lord revealed to me according to the words all ready confirmed to me that He was about to release me.

Taking a Leap of Faith - A Prayer Answered!

Text Box: I was overwhelmed with amazement, because God DID answer my prayer!!

During the night I had a dream, but I only remembered a part of the dream. In the dream I jumped up and used the power in my legs to jump upwards. I was able to jump so high that I could nearly jump twice the high of a normal man's length. It felt like I was flying. I jumped a few times, because of the exuberance of the feeling to be able to jump so high. I was like a fish in the sky! I also felt like I was swimming in the air!

In the next part of the dream I was on a basketball court. I ran over towards the west and jumped to see whether I could dunk the ball. I was pleasantly surprise to jump so high that I could look over the hoop and dunk the ball.

Although I didn't have a ball with me I was able to jump that high. I hanged on to the hoop and found that the hoop was standing up and the ball couldn't go through it. I jumped again and hanged unto the hoop that was standing upright and pulled it down so that it could allow a ball to go through.

Text Box: We were like those who dream.

I was amazed at the dream the Lord had given me, because in the dream of the Plough that I was asking the Lord about I also jumped at a certain stage. God is faithful to those who trust in Him.

I have been asking God lately when would I start picking the fruit of the harvest I have been sowing with, with tears as the Psalmist said:

1 When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion,

We were like those who dream.

2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

And our tongue with singing.

Then they said among the nations,

" The Lord has done great things for them."

3 The Lord has done great things for us,

And we are glad.

4 Bring back our captivity, O Lord,

As the streams in the South.

5 Those who sow in tears

Shall reap in joy.

6 He who continually goes forth weeping,

Bearing seed for sowing,

Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,

Bringing his sheaves with him.

(Ps 126:1-6)

Undoubtedly, I have gone through much suffering to come to this point. I had to learn hard and fast. Although it felt like it was long and slow. Truly with God a thousand years are as a day and one single day as a 1000 years. But praise be to God who brought me through deadly perils and will continue to do so until the day of Christ. Yes I learned what Paul meant when he said: shall distress or depression or loneliness separate us from the love of God in Christ Yahshua our Lord and Saviour. (Rom 8:35)

I believe the dream briefly means that the Lord is calling me to a large leap in faith. A leap and an excelling in those areas I have never developed in: Financial, relationships with people and even writing.

The Lost son

Having gone through this severe time of eye opening I came to a complete stand still in my life. I felt like everything around me was falling to pieces. Have you ever felt that way?

Text Box: Break up your fallow ground,   For it is time to seek the LORD,   till He comes and rains righteousness on you.

When anyone look in from the outside I believe they would say God is with you mighty warrior, but I never want your life. I praise and thank God that I don't have to do things the way you're doing it!

I have chosen to develop my spiritual life first. I have tried to followed God's perfect will for my life. I have even as the word of God said: Gave up all for the sake of Christ - I have lives like a missionary in South Africa. But is that God's perfect will for my life?

I have even with hold my self from women for 4.5 year of my life. I have a Paul said tasted what He meant to say it is beter not to be married for you "...will have many sorrows and I want to spare you of all of this..." or 32 But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord-how he may please the Lord. 33 But he who is married cares about the things of the world-how he may please his wife.(1 Cor 7:32)

Now however I understand according to revelation the Holy Spirit has given me that I must break-up all fallow ground... as the prophet Hosea wrote:

12 Sow for yourselves righteousness;

Reap in mercy;

13 You have ploughed wickedness;

You have reaped iniquity.

You have eaten the fruit of lies,

Because you trusted in your own way,

in the multitude of your mighty men.

(Hos 10:12)

We all have fallow ground. Those are the places in our lives which:

  • We have never explored, (Talents unused)
  • Never put into practice for the Lord's sake. (Financial)

It is also those places:

  • We were to insecure to give to the Lord, (Past hurts, Unconfessed sin)
  • Shame and fear of rejection.
  • Lack of acceptance and understanding of God's love (Emotional deprivation, not knowing love and God)
  • Misinterpretation of the Word of God. (2 Pet 1:219-20)

We are in constant battle for our souls. If our souls are distracted we have an inability to hear God's voice and to come into the presence of God. One morning while I was fighting the Lord gave me the word of David, which is the same word of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah:

Plead my cause, O Lord, with those who strive with me;

Fight against those who fight against me.

2 Take hold of shield and buckler,

And stand up for my help.

3 Also draw out the spear,

And stop those who pursue me.

Say to my soul,

"I am your salvation."

(Ps 35:1-3)

The Leap

For 4 year now I have lived by faith as I have felt the Lord has called me to do, but now a new season has come. Great break through is about to come in every area of my life, because of renewed thinking. I had misunderstood scriptures and also what the Lord was trying to reach in my life. Since I fell in love a great turmoil and great realization came: I have suffered long enough. I have more potential than that which I have lived. The live I have chosen had brought me many powerful miraculous breakthroughs, but I couldn't come to my full potential in Christ. I was still un relatable and unusable to the world. Was I so spiritual minded that I was of no earthly good? No I was not practical. I didn't understand what Yahshua meant when He said:...be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves or We must be pure towards God and the world in our hearts, but not naive in the cunningness of the world and its schemes for God himself said:

25 With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful;

With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;

26 With the pure You will show Yourself pure;

And with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd.

27 For You will save the humble people,

But will bring down haughty looks.

(Ps 18:25-27)

They us money to make and break the world. We need money too. Even as Yahshua said: "For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light. 9 "And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home. 10 "He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. 11 "Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?" (Luke 16:8-11)

The Lord has blessed me with a degree in Engineering. This could be a way that God would open a door He could open no other way to me. He has also shown me many things that are in His will for my life. The Lord confirmed His word and will to other and to me about teaching English in China or the Eastern Nations. There is a possibility to work as a youth worker for Kohin or get sponsors and join a large missions organization like OM or YAWN. Whatever the Lord's will is that I will do even as Yahshua said: "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." (Luke 9:57)

In conclusion, the Lord gave me a promise:

1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills-

From whence comes my help?

2 My help comes from the Lord,

Who made heaven and earth.

3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;

He who keeps you will not slumber.

4 Behold, He who keeps Israel

Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is your keeper;

The Lord is your shade at your right hand.

6 The sun shall not strike you by day,

Nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;

He shall preserve your soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in

From this time forth, and even forevermore.

(Ps 121)

I praise God. Although we are unfaithful and ignorant of His plans. He remains faithful. Just after these words came through the Lord gave me another dream:

The Cloud Break

As I looked I saw dark clouds in the sky. There were two layers of clouds. The one layer above the other. Suddenly as if without warning a great mass of water like with the opening of a large floodgate fell downwards towards the cloud underneath it. It looked like the cloud just broke open, because it had no more capacity to carry the weight of the water mass.

The most amazing part of the dream was to see how tons of water with a cloud break with massive impact crashed into the cloud underneath it, but it wouldn't give way. The cloud mass underneath did take a heavy beating, but was still able to resist the force of the water, which like a flood crashed from above into it. I could see how the cloud at the bottom like a large water mattress absorbed the impact of the water from above. There were some releases of rain or even ice after such an impact, but the bulk of the water wouldn't rain down.

As I looked I saw how this same phenomenon occurred 3 times as if trying to breakthrough the cloud that was blocking its way on its way downward. Every time there was some release for a time of some rain or ice that fell to the ground after impact, but even then, sometimes the upward draft was so strong that even this water couldn't reach the ground!

If you know something about upward drafts you will understand the parable better. There is some kind of equilibrium between the amount of water being held up and the upward wind streams. Great upward drafts can keep tons of water in the air under the right conditions.

The cloud underneath acted like a buffer that prevented it form raining on the earth. I also couldn't, but wondering whether when this cloud would break through there wouldn't be a complete flooding on the earth. Would men be able to handle such power, force and impact? As I typed the Holy Spirit was saying to me that He is revealing to me a truth in the spiritual realm that is taking place in my life right now. He is also busy teaching me a powerful spiritual principal.

For clouds to form a wonderful process starts. Fog in the sky condenses on microscopic particles in the air. It is seen as very high clouds called cirrus clouds. As the air temperature becomes colder higher in the atmosphere the formation of water drop are bigger and the upward draft is stronger. Water falls under gravity and pass fog particles and become bigger and bigger with every cycle of the upward draft. If the draft is so strong it could reach very low temperatures and ice will form. Depending on the specific condition either ice rain, hail or snow could form. Some times under very specific circumstances ice would not form, but the upward draft would not be able to carry the weight of the water, and a cloud break would occur. Massive amounts of water will just fall to the ground and flood everything underneath it. It is a very hazardous condition, because there is not a controlled release of water to the earth as rain, water will be falling, like out of a bucket, to the earth.

What is the Lord trying to say to us? There is a very strong build-up in the spirit realm for rain. We need rain to plant and to grow food. The upward draft could be those things in the spirit that are resisting a breakthrough in the spirit for God's provision and power. In the dream it is clear that at a certain time even those things will not be able to hold back the rain. The only problem is then the breakthrough will be like a flood, which would be too much to handle. But there is some kind of a buffer in the way preventing the water meant for the earth not to reach its destination. What could this buffer be? Must is be removed? And how?

We some times experience the manifested presence of God in different ways in our lives. It could be blessing of finances, provision, spiritual understanding, unity in the church, deliverance and healing from the past. New levels of joy and happiness are experienced daily. Greater amounts of people come to the Lord Yahshua the Messiah. Prayers are answered supernaturally. Supernatural phenomenons are not uncommon anymore eg. Miraculous healings occur more frequently, powerful witnessing and powerful manifestations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. A return of Yahshua's words: "They will do what I have being doing and even greater thing than these..." and ultimately the fulfilment of the words of Daniël:.they will do great exploits for the Lord's sake." It will be a return to first century Christianity and the 3rd reformation prophesied by Kobus van Rensburg. This will be a spiritual revival!

Text Box: .Exhort One Another Daily.    .Lest any of you be hardened through the Deceitfulness of Sin.

God is calling us to a higher level of prayer, commitment and lifestyle in order to overcome the resistance in the spirit. It calls for improved relationship with the Lord, improved skills in prayer and warfare, increase in our knowledge of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah, stronger intercession and greater obedience to the Holy Spirit in order to find out what is the buffer and to overcome that resistance factor?

We must inquire of the Lord how to wage war in the spirit so that we will not be ignorant of Satan's schemes. My major interest is in the buffer! Is it good or bad? We must ask the Lord how to strategize to open the floodgates of heaven!

As I prayed a few days later, suddenly while meditating on the will of the Lord for my life and confessing some sins the Lord through His Spirit just uttered the answer to me.

In the last few years the Lord has given me strong revelation in prophetic things and in the things of the spirit. It was like a burst of understanding and revelation I said to my own surprise. Praise God who always answers our prayers. I suddenly realized that I had powerful breakthroughs in every spiritual area of my life. In tongues and the interpretation of tongues, in healing and deliverance, in personal prophecies and revelation prophecies, in intercession and all kinds of spiritual teaching from the annointing, but couldn't fully utilise this great knowledge given from God. I remained ineffective in my knowledge of the Lord Yahshua the Messiah as Peter the apostle once wrote by the Holy Spirit:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Yahshua our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah. 9 For he who lacks these things is short-sighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Yahshua the Messiah. (2 Pet 1:2-11)

Therefore pray for:

  • Your fallow ground to broken up
  • Ask for revelation to what is buffering your blessings.
  • Take a leap of faith and start developing and nurturing that talent you have not developed yet.

As intercessors pray for me for:

  • Open doors for financial support
  • Balanced life in harmony with the Holy Spirit
  • Protection against attacks form the enemy
  • Revelation of the lies believed in all these years.
  • To be an effective witness in a crooked world.

Thank you for your love and prayers. Send this letter forward if the Lord guide you to it and He, my God, will bless your every need.

IF it is the Lord's will I will start sending newsletters monthly and later even weekly. Remember these are only intended to be an encouragement and as an intercession request to gain higher levels of breakthrough in the spiritual realm. As the Psalmist says:

I have felt that too little practical lifestyle messages are shared to build-up, restore and disciple those who have reached a Plato in there relationship with God. According to the word the writer says: 12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. (Heb 3:12)

And

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. (Heb 10:24 -26)

To the Praise of God the Father and Our Lord Yahshua the Messiah
