1 John v14-15:
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
A big part of God's great work in and through us is to give us his heart, and so advance his Kingdom through prayers which have his desires in mind. As we are human, these prayers often start in a very natural and sometimes even very selfish way (although there is nothing wrong with praying for ourselves and our wants and needs as long as they are good and Godly things). However, as we pray, the Lord intercedes for us and the Holy Spirit starts to lead us in our requests. He purifies the requests and makes them Christ centred and filtered, and very quickly we find that our prayers and requests are just as they should be (and even the prayer process is done in a Godly way).
That doesn't necessarily mean that Christ completely changes our prayers and requests, because he loves to keep the sincerity of them and hear them from who he has made us to be in Christ. Often the Lord only has to steer them in the right direction and remind us of the purpose of prayer, and that, ultimately, they are for Him.
Avoid an earthly mindset and fleshly fear that will keep you from prayer and prayer requests. This happens when we presume that we don't necessarily need more of the Holy Spirit, that the Lord will not answer us, or when we believe that we cannot possibly know the will of God. We always need his Holy Spirit (read about how much Jesus himself prayed) as we always need to rely on Christ, the Lord will always answer that which is his will, and we can always know the most important aspects of his will. The understanding of the will of God is made plain through his Word, and many scriptures make his will clear down to the letter. The Bible says that God will give us the Holy Spirit if we ask him, for this will always mean a practically stronger relationship with Christ, greater fruitfulness for his Kingdom, and that we will be a greater blessing and support to his people.
The Lord will give us anything to do with his Spirit if we ask him, but we do need to ask him. The Bible says that we do not receive because we do not ask. Prayer and prayer requests are about communion with Christ, being changed more into his image, better relationships with others, and greater effectiveness for his will and purposes. Prayer is also about the Lord wanting to deposit more of his grace and strength in our lives, and growing us in our faith. All things to do with prayer are good, and if they are not (due to our 'clayness', shortcomings or failings), he will quickly make sure they are by his Holy Spirit through the process of prayer (we just need to step out in faith when we pray- this is what pleases God!). Prayer is also designed so that God can fulfill His will concerning us and give us any promises which he may have previously given us.
What we request in prayer, if we persist for long enough, we will receive if we pray for his sake, his people's sake and for his will and glory. If we have these things as our heart, we will find that we ourselves begin to filter and purify our prayers. We will also find that our heart for the things of God grows, as will our love for Jesus (one of the great designs of prayer!). The Lord also greatly cares for us as individuals, so we can also pray for our own needs and desires if they are good and Godly, and we can be sure that he'll hear and answer us (even if the answer is sometimes a loving "No"- which he, not always, but sometimes will give us a reason for like he did with Paul's request to remove his thorn. His grace will always be sufficient for us, no matter what the answer to our prayers will be).
First check with the Word, then you will know if what you ask is his will or in the context of that will (then when you're answered you'll be able to accept HOW he answers as much as what the answer is). Then you can be ABSOLUTELY confident that he will answer. What is more, you can be confident that you are given His Holy Spirit in the PROCESS of that praying, which is as much a blessing as anything you will receive as a result of what you ask for in prayer.

Dream: received the morning of the 14th of March, 2016

This dream was very short but extremely vivid. I dreamt I was looking at a nuclear device (nuclear bomb) and the word ‘Esther’ was written on it in red letters. The word was in the place where you’d usually see the countdown to the actual explosion. In the dream I understood that I was on the nuclear case, in other words I was on the case to stop the bomb from going off. I knew that the word ‘Esther’ was the key to solving the case, and I thought to myself that I would write that word down in my notes.

After this dream, I went online to refresh my memory about the story of Esther (see Bible Hub summary- http://biblehub.com/summary/esther/1.htm). Mordecai encourages Esther to intercede for the people of God:

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” (4:14).

The Bible tells us that we also are a royal priesthood because of salvation and Jesus and so have the same power with God that Esther had because of Jesus. God is wanting us to pray and intercede for his people regarding the future nuclear bomb threat because He wants to deliver them in the future! By those same prayers and intercedings He also wants to save us and our families! This is obviously awesome news- praise God! We certainly don't have an uncaring Lord! Our hope to avert the nuclear threat in the future rests upon our willingness to pray and intercede. Remember that God doesn't hear us because of our many words, but because of our earnest words. Even the shortest prayer has great power with God (the Lord's prayer in the New Testament was very short!) because He listens and doesn't let any prayer go to waste! 

Esther was only one person, and yet through her, God brought about a miraculous deliverance for his people. Haman was wanting to exterminate them, but Esther intervened by appealing to the King, and everything changed. Like Esther, even if one person prays, it will make a difference! Even a nation-changing miraculous one!!!

Samuel was already serving the Lord when the Lord called him to another, different kind of service. However, it took Samuel a while to recognise that the Lord was calling him to that service! (3 times! see 1 Samuel 3). Initially, he though it was just a human calling him in Eli. Three times the Lord called him, and three times Samuel mistook the voice that called him for Eli's and so just went back to what he was already doing in his original service for the Lord. How often do we ignore men's voices, simply for that fact, because they are men! Sometimes it is difficult to discern whether it's just the voice of men or the voice of the Lord, but we should be open to hearing His voice through men, otherwise we may miss it:
1 Samuel 3v8-10:
Then Eli realised that the LORD was calling the boy. So Eli told Samuel, "Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, 'Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.'" So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
v10 The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, "Samuel! Samuel!"
Then Samuel said, "Speak, for your servant is listening."
Matthew 11v15:
Whoever has ears, let them hear

If we think it's just a human calling us to another service, we will be tempted to just rely on our own way of thinking to discern whether we should either accept or reject that call. But if we know it's the Lord's voice, we, like Samuel, will accept that we're being called to a different kind of service, and perhaps even something more than we've done in the past or are currently doing. Sometimes, even when the Lord is calling us, it takes another human being to make us realise that that is happening, and that it's not just men saying it. We need to be humble enough to hear from men, no matter how unimportant and simple their voice may be, for the Lord loves to use the lowly and despised things of the world rather than the things that are (1 Cor 1v28), for in doing so He reveals that only He is good, powerful and glorious.
So how will we know if it is the Lord's calling and not men's? Primarily, we need to ask whether the service has a Biblical foundation. Secondly, whether we have a desire for it (for the Bible tells us that it is He who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure). Thirdly, whether it will be edifying for the body of Christ. Fourthly, whether we have been equipped with something that we can actually give to others (in the way of a revelation, teaching, instruction etc -1 Cor 14v26). Fifthly, whether we know how to minister with what we've been given by the fruits of the Spirit, love, and in truth according to the Bible and its doctrines. Sixthly, whether it lines up with the talents we know we've been given by the Lord. Lastly, but most importantly, whether we've had the voice confirmed to us by the Lord himself through his Word and prayer, and to our own hearts and minds by the Spirit of God, and even by other people? This last one is very important but often requires that we allow time and prayer to properly test whose voice is speaking to us and thus what service to begin.
Generally speaking, if you've been given something by the Lord, scripture tells us, in the story of the talents, that this has been done so that we'll serve with what we've been given. The Bible tells us that the manifestation of the Spirit is given to one, for the benefit of all. Some things that we're given are just for us personally, however, the way we figure out what is just for us personally and what is also for others in the Body of Christ is simple. We only need to ask ourselves, "Would this also spiritually benefit others?"
Perhaps the Lord is calling you to another service, but up until this point you have just thought that it is man calling call you, or even vice versa! Make sure you are very careful to discern who is calling you, and be open to hearing His voice, even if it comes through men!

I feel like the Lord wants me to explain to everyone out there, and particularly those that don’t know, why I post the way I do and share the revelations I’m given.

In one sense, the Lord has made us all watchmen for his people as a way to support, encourage, teach and instruct one another to continue to follow Christ through the good times and times of suffering. In the Old Testament this ministry was usually confined to just a few people that God called and appointed:

Isaiah 62
V6: I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, [which] shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,

Ezekiel 3v
16 At the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me: 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.

Those watchmen were prophets, as they heard the Word of the Lord, whether by dream, vision or his audible voice, and passed on what they were given. This continued in the New Testament, with prophets being called and ministering in the same way, including by dreams and visions (Acts 2v17-18). The only difference is that now we are ALL called, to some degree, to be watchmen. In the New Testament Jesus told us all to ‘Watch and pray’ (Matt 26v41) and to ‘discern the sign of the times’ (Matt 16v3), and the Apostle Paul wrote that we can all prophesy, For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.’ (1 Cor 14v31). Furthermore, we are all told to eagerly desire the gift of prophesy so that all Christians can minister encouragement to the body of Christ in that manner (1 Cor 14v1). Anyone and all in the body of Christ can also receive dreams and visions and prophesy in order to reveal what the Lord says (Acts 2v17-18). That Acts passage also indicates that in the last days (since the time when that scripture was given) this would be for the whole Church, ‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people’ (Acts 2v17).

So we see that everyone in the Church is called to watch and are watchmen for the sake of themselves and the rest of the body of Christ. It is true, however, that some are called to this in a more particular and direct manner. In the New Testament, Agabus and the Apostle John are examples of this, particularly John in relation to end time events. In John’s case, the prophetic revelations he was given came in conjunction with the revelatory messages the Lord gave him to give to the Churches. He was also called and given a heart to speak to the Churches of that time as a whole (both the Word and the revelations of the Lord). His is the clearest and strongest example of this prophetic watchmen ministry in the New Testament, and, even though there are other New Covenant examples, the Lord knew that little else would be needed to reveal what the aim and purpose of this ministry is.

This brings me to the point of why I am writing. Before I continue though, please understand and believe me when I say that I’m not writing this to lift myself up. I'm the same as everyone else out there; a sinner saved by grace. I am the least of the saints and the chief of sinners, and nothing more than a servant who is a clay vessel and incapable of doing anything without his grace and power. Practically speaking, the scope of my service is also very small and quite insignificant. I’m only writing this now in order to give people a bit of context as to why I share and post what I do, and so that people won’t think I do what I do randomly or without a reason (or for any other reason). I could share anything and everything of what the Lord gives me, and yet, if people mistake the reason I give those things, they would have no effect for the Lord and his kingdom and purposes, and could even be damaging. 

Having said all that, the reason I share and post the way I do, is, at its heart, quite simple. When I was younger there was a time when, in reading about the gifts and callings of the Spirit, I really wanted to know what the Lord wanted me to do to serve Him in the future. I wanted to know what my specific gift and calling was, and felt that the Lord was really putting it on my heart to ask him about this. After a time of praying about this and reading the Word, I felt incredibly strongly that the Lord was calling me to be a prophet and to prophesy. When I read in the Bible about the prophetic gift, I was deeply stirred and felt a great burning inside of me for that calling. That led me in the years to come to also pray for a long time for dreams and visions (Jer 33v3 / which I had to wait for, and only came after months of praying- the Lord growing my patience and testing my desire for prophesy and obedience in terms of whether I would continue to ask him like His Word says we must do if we would receive anything from Him. This was also a humbling time, and the Lord showed me that it was only by his grace and mercy that I began receiving dreams and visions), which I eventually began receiving.

In the subsequent years after I felt a strong call and deep desire for the prophetic, the Lord also began to give me a desire to understand New Testament, New Covenant doctrine about judgment and righteousness, and to speak to me about those things. Up until that time, I had grown up in a Church where the grace of God was taught comprehensively and extremely well. That time was a great blessing and God established a great foundation of faith in my life. However, there came a time when, in reading the Word, he began to reveal to me other parts of His character, ways and will. I spent a very long time in this kind of study, wanting to understand New Covenant judgment and righteous (both for myself and for others), and how those two things fit with grace and mercy. I studied the New Testament at great length and constantly compared its parts to ensure that they agreed with each other and confirmed the conclusions I came to. I also compared the Old and New Testament in my study and the dispensations of the Old and New Covenants. Still, I believe it took going to Bible college years later, and a comprehensive study of the whole of scripture during that time, in order to filter out certain errors in my understanding and add other truths in order to come to a clear realisation of how judgment and grace fit together in the Father’s work in his people.  

I understand that this may seem a little odd to a lot of people out there, as things to do with his judgment  are not naturally things that Christians enjoy looking in to. I can only say that the reason for this must be because the Lord gave me this desire. I also enjoy looking into this because the Bible says that this is one of the things the Lord delights in (Jer 9v24). Judgment is also something closely connected to grace (i.e God judged Christ in our place so that we could receive his grace and life), and something which the Lord uses to discipline his people (1 Peter 4v16-19) so that they can continue to partake in his life and partake of it in an even greater way (practically) as their spiritual lives progress. It is also something which the Lord uses to clear the way for what he wants to do in and through his people, and also something which ensures their relationship with him can be as joyful and fruitful as possible. 

Preceding my time at Bible College and in the years afterwards, the Lord began speaking to me in dreams and visions and through his Word about the judgments He is planning to pour out and allow in the future (Rom 1v18). He also revealed such things through many other confirming voices (people) who had been given similar revelations. Through this time I was also reading and studying the Bible to explore what his will is regarding those things, and through it the Lord continued to reveal to me why they will probably take place (barring repentance and prayer).

The revelations the Lord gave me were not just about future events, but also about the state of his Church. While there will always be those in his Church that are faithful and walk with him, and so also Churches that are like this, the Lord began revealing to me how a lot of the Church is lukewarm and backslidden. He also showed me how there is wrong doctrine being preached and also idolatry going on amongst His people. He also showed me how his Church is being adorned in unhelpful and fleshly ways. Sadly, I also experienced all these things on a firsthand basis; seeing this fleshly, self-centered type of Church for myself.  In the early days of all this, I have to admit that my immediate reaction to what the Lord showed me, both by His Spirit and in person, was not only grief and frustration, but also anger. It was devastating to see the Church I had once known to be Spirit led and Christ centred become man-centred and man-driven. It was also heartbreaking to see God’s people misled in doctrine, used, at times controlled, and even spiritually abused.

It was not just about what was wrong in Churches and with some of his people that grieved me so much, but it was also because of what I knew the true Church of God should be. I had grown up in a Church where I had always felt the presence of God in a really special way. The preacher knew the Word of God very well and I felt as though I always heard the Lord’s voice through what he shared and taught. Prayer and worship were centered upon Jesus, his glory and will, and these times were also characterized by a real sense of his presence and a working of his Spirit. This Church didn’t have an elaborate set-up or anything fancy going in in terms of its appearance, but rather was adorned with the great joy that was evident amongst His people, and a unity that could’ve only been born by the Spirit. Offering money was not only given to the Pastor, but also to mission works overseas and to any who had need. Messages on money, however, were a rarity. Above all, what was preached was Biblical, the Spirit was present and moved amongst the congregation, and the Lord’s voice was clear and often confirmed what he had been speaking to me about that week anyway, and the congregation genuinely cared for each other. This was a time when the Lord showed me what his heart for his people was, and what a sincere and Biblical Church gathering looked like and should be. So it hasn’t just been by the negative that the Lord has taught me, but initially and for many years, it was by the blessing of the positive.

This leads me to how I’ve tried to (even in a very small and mostly insignificant way) serve the Lord in the last few years and current time, and why I’ve written, shared and posted like I have. I feel as though, by his grace alone, the Lord has given me a great heart for the people of God. This heart centres on one thing, which is to see the people of God- the Bride of Christ- truly be and act like his Bride. My desire is to see his people and Church truly be his possession and have a love and service for the Lord that is fervent, truth-based and pure. Admittedly the Lord has also had to work on me through the years in this regard, and continues to do so. he’s also humbled me to see my own weaknesses and
shortcomings, and to see that without his grace, nothing is possible. Above all he has shown me that he is after, not perfection (we’ll be sinners saved by grace till we die), but an overall sincerity which manifests itself in grace and truth. This is often a difficult thing and at times involves suffering (as He molds us into his image and disciplines us), but it is possible because of his life. It is possible for the Christian and for the Church as a whole, and this is what Jesus desires, and which is the purpose of all watchmen, watching and prophecy.

Everything above is the reason I now do what I do- sharing and posting as I do. As small and insignificant as it may be, it is not a random thing and not done for any other reason. I was always taught that ‘context is king’ so that’s why I’ve written this long piece. The Bible also says that the communication of revelation and prophecy has to be clear and certain, otherwise its purpose becomes frustrated:

1 Cor 14:
Even things without life, whether flute or harp, when they make a sound, unless they make a distinction in the sounds, how will it be known what is piped or played? For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle? So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air. 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of languages in the world, and none of them is without significance. 11 Therefore, if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to him who speaks, and he who speaks will be a foreigner to me.

Hopefully all of this has been clarifying and ensures that nothing I’ve posted to date be misread. Everything I’ve posted I’ve done in order to encourage, strengthen, comfort and edify His people (1 Cor 14v3). I’ve done this through various Biblical methods, including through teaching, instruction, exhortation, warning, correction, rebuke and by simply sharing revelations (2 Tim 3v16). At times I haven’t been perfect in this process, and got it wrong on occasions, so I apologise for that, but I have tried my best and tried to do so with the right intentions and motivations. For whatever reason, I’ve never had much of any kind of feedback or anyone write to me or discuss these things with me whether in person or online. There may be various reasons for this, and all understandable, however this is one of the reasons I’ve written this piece as I’m trying to anticipate how these things may have been received. I hope that, at least for a few people, this has given people a better understanding regarding what I’ve shared. I also hope it has shed some light on what this kind of service for the Lord really is, and also given a Biblical foundation and understanding about it (although no doubt most or all of the understanding of this doctrine and Biblical ministry is very familiar to everyone out there).

In the future, I hope that what I share can be taken in the vein it is given in. At its core, all watching and prophecy is done to encourage us to continue to love, follow and serve the Lord and each other, and is therefore meant to be edifying and a blessing. Please take it in this way in the future, and please help each other to be watchmen and watch as the Word says, and as you feel led by the Lord. A stormy future and a dark night is coming, so watching is of particular importance at present and will be increasingly so as the years progress. Having said all this, the Lord also wants to encourage us with the fact that he will be with us in the future and will take us through whatever comes. I also believe there is also great blessing coming in the future and a great outpouring of his Spirit, so let us take heart and continue to follow him.

In a dream I was at Broadbeach close to Pacific Fair. I was facing towards the coast when I saw a few tornados and videoed one on my phone. Then I saw a residential high-rise building fall over. It was about the size of the two wave-type buildings that are currently located in Broadbeach along the Coast. It's possible that it was one of those buildings, but it doesn't have to be, and I believe that it's possible that it could be any residential high-rise building along the Coast.

The tornadoes could be literal or they could just symbolise the judgment of the building collapse that I saw. My opinion is that it's the latter because in the dream I explained to a couple of people that God had warned about this judgment event and that the building falling over was the fulfilment of it. I believe the 1-3 tornados also symbolised how this will be a relatively light judgment (as, although still important, it is still only one building that will fall over), as one of the tornadoes that I videoed up close wasn't very large or powerful.

In the dream itself, I told someone else that the building falling over was the exact fulfilment of a dream the Lord had previously given me. I believe this was the Lord's way of saying that this event will happen.

Other things happened in the dream which I believe was the Lord's way of saying that some do not recognise when the Lord judges and do not respond in the way they need to. Instead of reforming their lives and believing in HIm, they get offended at God and question why, if He really exists and is who He says He is, He doesn't stop these kind of things from happening. God allows and brings about events like these in order to try and wake the world up to believe in Him and also get Christians to repent and turn away from a disobedient and wicked lifestyle.

In the dream itself I believe it was also revealed to me that many people get easily offend and put off by things to do with the Lord's judgment and the fact that He does judge and also judges His people if He has to.

Please be prayerful and vigilant if you are planning to visit this area in Broadbeach in the future (the opposite side of the highway to Pacific Fair on the beach side.). If you are a Christian, make sure you are uprightly walking with Him. If you're not a Christian, believe in the Lord because He is the Saviour of mankind, and doesn't want to have to judge you.
