Prayer4UKToday a New Era of Government January 31st 2020

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name YAHOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.



As the United Kingdom leaves the European Union at 11pm tonight, we declare over this nation, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and England “of the increase of His Government and Peace (prosperity, safety, wellbeing) there will be no end.”

We will step into a completely new Era for Government in the United Kingdom, so God’s people need to be those that pray, decree and declare to establish a merging and a union of God’s government with our natural government in the days ahead.

It’s a time for  God’s people to step into out governmental role in the spirit and to pray according to the plans, purposes and heart of the King.

With this in view, I will be online for a short time, on my Passion for the Nation Facebook page,  at 11pm this evening. We will also again be partnering  with the National day of Prayer, and sending out 12 Declarations (short) starting tomorrow, February 1st.

Again, thank you everyone for your partnership.

Prayer4UKToday Trade Monday 27th January 2020

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name YAHOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.


“For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”  Jeremiah 29: 11

In this season when God is re-aligning nations, we acknowledge that His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts than our thoughts. As the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, we decree every key trading link required for His  blessing to come to our land will be established. We especially decree the potential trade agreements with the United States, Israel and the EU will be finalized and enacted according to Kingdom timing and plan.

We speak into our nation in this season, and we call forth vision, skill, and investment in Jesus Name, and we declare business and industry will flourish, core manufacturing be retained, and jobs protected.

Specifically, as industries shift and required skills change, we decree the industrial, commercial and financial communities within this land, both management and workforce, will embrace every new opportunity God’s Spirit is releasing in this day. We cry out for His grace and His kindness, that those whose lives will be affected, will be enabled to embrace every change.

In the Name of Jesus, we speak into the streets and communities, into the shopping centres and business parks, and we declare jobs will be created, businesses will prosper and entrepreneurs will be released.

“Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the way of the Lord”  Psalm 34:11

In this turn around season, we decree and declare stable, healthy marriages and families, built according to God’s word, will again become a foundation of society. We agree this is the day for relationships within families to be restored, new lines of communication to be established and love and respect increased.

We declare that as His Spirit moves within this land, God’s people will grasp the wisdom and the treasure of the principles contained  within His word, modelling and celebrating a new way of living, built upon those principles.

We speak healing and comfort to those wounded by their experiences, that fresh hope and fresh direction will come to them, in Jesus Name. We declare a fresh level of wisdom and leadership to husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, grandparents and foster parents that strong and loving homes will be established in this day. We agree children will grow up in the knowledge of that love, emotionally strong and fully equipped to take their place in life.  Proverbs 24:3

In the Name of Jesus, we declare Godly priorities into the lives of individuals and we speak the alignment of laws, court judgments, finances and social care with God given statutes.

Now, in the Name of Jesus,  we speak God given wisdom to all those currently negotiating Trade agreements at this time, that every decision made will align this nation for God’s blessing in the days ahead.

Our PFTN Kingdom Community – Clapham continues to meet regularly. The first meeting of 2020 will be on January 30th. Please do email info@pftn.co.uk for more information.

We agree every value, policy and goal of this Labour Party, all affiliated organisations, and supporting movements will be in alignment with God’s perfect will and purpose, and we speak light into every dark place, in Jesus Name.

Prayer4UKToday 12 Days of Prayer

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.


For all of those who joined with us for the 12 Days of Prayer for the Nation in the run up to the general election, we will be continuing throughout this year with a declaration on the 12th day of every month.  There will also be a midnight Prayer Watch on the 11th of each month, leading into the 12th . I am sorry that I did not get this information to you sooner.
Please join with us all to declare today.

Declaration 12th January 2020
Jesus is the King of Kings and the Lord of Glory, and we declare over this nation and over this land, ‘Your Kingdom come, Your will be done as it is in heaven.’ 
‘and I bestow upon you a Kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon me’  Luke 22:29 
On the 12th Day of the first month of this year 2020, we declare God is reforming our nation, that from every government structure to the lives of individuals, justice and righteousness will be released. We agree that this is the time for the fullness of God’s government to be established in this nation; that this is the divinely appointed time for the God given sovereignty and order of governmental authority for this nation to be established.
 We decree that every new foundation laid will shape and form the British Isles according to God’s design and will be completed according to His order and timing. We declare this is the time for the new opportunities of God in and for our nation to be born in fullness, and that all shifts and changes taking place through current negotiations and policy reviews will facilitate this.
We decree every Godly inheritance within all forms of government and God given authority will be aligned, recovered, restored and connected to the future of this nation, moving it forward with God’s plans, purposes and timings. We decree this over our Parliament, our Cabinet, our civil service, our devolved governments in Scotland, Ireland and Wales, our Queen and the Royal Family: and the Ecclesia throughout the British Isles.
We say that every individual called and anointed for and within all forms of government of the British Isles will be positioned to fulfil that God given call. We decree the power of Kingdom purpose will overwhelm any plan of the enemy to damage, disrupt, delay or destroy in Jesus Name. We agree God's protection, His shield and glory over every individual.
We declare a new governmental authority has been released upon God’s people as the Ecclesia, that doors are opened and favour released. We decree that as the people of God, walking in agreement in heart, vision and purpose under the Lordship of Jesus, they will be ‘as one’ ( John 17) and empowered to steward every new thing that God is bringing forth.
So, we say God let your Kingdom come! Let your government and your ways come on earth in our nation as it is in Heaven and be glorified!  

Let us Push Together and See our Nation Shift into the Fullness of Her destiny!

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.


Lord, we thank You for the life of our Queen Elizabeth II, and we celebrate her heart for You and for her people, the wisdom, righteousness and integrity reflected in her life, and for the respect she carries within this land.

Lord, You desire that the Monarchy in this nation will display Your Righteousness, Your Wisdom and Your Majesty. In the Name of Jesus, we decree every Godly inheritance within it will be recovered, restored, strengthened and connected to the future of this nation. We decree every change taking place in the present time, will strengthen and support the monarchy, promoting and releasing a shift and a moving forward in keeping with Your times and purposes.

In this season of transition, we speak divine order into every aspect of the Royal Family and we release Your light into every place of confusion and misunderstanding, that wounds will be healed, relationships restored and solutions released.

We speak life into every God given purpose and call upon Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, that every gift and skill will be used in alignment with God given destiny. We agree the power of Kingdom purpose will overwhelm any plan of the enemy to damage, disrupt, delay or destroy, in Jesus Name.  

We praise You for the model the Queen has given, standing above political noise and personal pain, we declare she will have God given wisdom at this time. We continue to bless her to stand in health, strength and righteousness until such a time as those to follow may do so with the fear of God upon them.

Prayer4UKToday 9th January 2020 Vision

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.


as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts’ Isaiah 55:9

In this year of the double, we decree and declare the dual anointing resting upon this nation to both preach the gospel and to influence cultures across nations will be renewed, reformed and restored.

Lord, we confess where man’s greed, desire for power, ungodly stewardship, foolishness or pride has caused pain, grief or damage. We acknowledge You as the Sovereign God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and we put our trust in You.

In the Name of Jesus, we decree even as nations were birthed from these shores, and knowledge and wisdom transferred across continents, the apostolic, fathering anointing will again arise upon this land, and we decree a turning, that in this season God’s heart will be our heart and His ways our ways.  

We  declare He is establishing new Kingdom networks across the nations, networks of Governments, networks of trade and networks of individuals. That even  ‘as Peter went aboard and hauled the net to land, full of fish, …and the net was not torn’  ” we declare networks and relationships across God’s people in this land that have not carried life will be replaced and renewed, and the capacity to bring in the fullness of Revival and Kingdom Transformation He is opening before us established. John 21: 11

We declare those Kingdom nets will be extended into other lands, preparing the way that other nations will be blessed with His salvation, His love and His power.

We decree and declare in the Name of Jesus,  the UK Parliament will be a source of Kingdom wisdom to all nations struggling to Govern righteously and bring peace (prosperity, health & well-being)  and security to their people

 “can’t you hear the voice of wisdom? From the top of the mountains of influence she speaks into the gateways of the glorious cities” Proverbs 8: 1

Prayer4UKToday 6th Jan 2020 Special New Year’s Message

ther in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.


Prayer4UKToday Special New Year’s Message
“WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE MAKING ANY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS”
Kathleen D. Mitchell
Dec. 26, 2019
Soon after the holiday gifts are opened … whether Christmas or Chanukah … whether one observes those holidays or not … a new calendar year is waiting to begin.  New Year’s resolutions are a traditional part of that January 1st event. Many people wait until moments before the midnight hour on the last day of December to start thinking about the changes they want to make, or need to make, in the emerging new year.
Interestingly, as of January 1st, we will be entering into the year 2020. You likely recall that 2020 is often heard in the offices of eye doctors and vision specialists. 20/20 vision is considered to be normal, uncorrected, vision. Someone with 20/20 vision can see what an average individual can see clearly on an eye chart while standing 20 feet away from it. No glasses or vision correction is needed. It is possible to have better than normal vision or less than normal. For instance, if someone has 20/15 vision, it means that this person can see clearly, standing 20 feet away, what the average person is able to see only by standing 5 feet closer to the chart. On the other hand, if someone has 20/40 vision it means that what the average person can see clearly at 40 feet from the eye chart, requires this person to stand only 20 feet away.  Thus, the vision of the 20/40 eyes are half as good as normal vision. Then, for the one with 20/40 vision to see something clearly without corrective lenses, objects must be at half the normal distance for this individual.
I find it noteworthy, that we can fairly easily accept that our physical vision may need to be corrected, but seldom do we consider that our soul or spiritual vision needs the assistance of corrective lenses. We’re OK with wearing glasses, and do not judge others for needing glasses or contact lenses to see clearly. There is no condemnation about people having faulty physical vision.  On the other hand, we human beings frequently look at the lives and actions … even at the words of others … through our flawed view of things. We often accept our perspective as the accurate “norm” for evaluating the lives and behaviors of others. We aren’t frequently inclined to test our soul or spiritual visual acuity (or ability) against the true Authority and Standard. We don’t seek to change how we see things, nor do we pursue a “check-up” to possibly acquire new lenses for viewing life and individuals more accurately.  Yeshua spoke about our faulty vision when He said these words recorded in Luke 6:42:
"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye.”  (NASB )
The Messiah is telling us that our “presumably accurate” vision/view of others can be perverted/skewed by things that we carry around in our own soul; blinding us to the realities in our own lives, while we criticize and correct others for what we see as their errors or sins. He uses the harsh word, HYPOCITE, for those, who do this.  So, as we begin this new year of 2020, I believe the Lord would like each of us to reflect upon those things in our life and experience that have left us in need of His corrective lenses.
What are some things that can skew our vision, and why do we fail to be aware of these things? Why do we insist that we have clarity about hearts, intensions, and motives in others, when we need vision correction ourselves? Also, what is the impact on our relationships, on our own hearts, and on our communities when we go around seeing things incorrectly, but yet defend our view as the true reality regarding situations or individuals? How do we get the logs out of our eyes to see correctly at the 20/20 level (or sharper) in the year 2020? And, how is our vision of YHVH impacted by our faulty view of Him, through erroneous, religious, beliefs?
WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THAT CAN SKEW OUR VISION?
--Wrong programming, bad information, and false teaching can mess with what we see and hear in other people, or in life situations. These sources of error can arise from as far back as childhood, or as recently as our last conference, our last gossip session (or social media post), or the latest news report.
I believe that we very often underestimate the impact of critical little comments that we (or someone else) make about another person, and which we unconsciously log into our thinking; incorporating that perspective as actual truth.  Additionally, wrong religious doctrines, traditions, and mandates can set us up to have religious thinking that is demanding, judgmental, controlling, condemnatory, and graceless.  Errant input, whether from a parent, a teacher, a conference speaker, a pastor, or a news broadcaster, etc. can cause skewing in our thinking and in our perceiving … and ultimately in our processing of reality.
--Hurt and wounding, particularly unhealed and historical in origin, may provide the filters/lenses for interpreting what we hear (or think we hear), and what we see from (or perceive within) others in the present day. Unhealed hurt and wounding can put others into a position of never being able to gain our approval, or even to gain any positive evaluation from us.  The reason is that we cannot truly see or hear the person engaging with us right now, may be because of the lenses and filters that were set up by, or adopted from, our painful past experiences. Unhealed wounds can put a spin on the words and actions of others that are not truly there at all. Something called transference occurs, where historical pain is accredited to an innocent person in the present day. As a result, the negativity and the misplaced responsibility for pain (which, being unresolved, is still alive in the heart and mind) is accredited to the wrong person in the present day; causing all words and actions to be processed through that historically established filter or lens. People with unhealed wounds can hurt others, who don’t deserve retaliation.
--Unforgiveness … keeping a record of the wrongs and failures of others, according to our memory of the incidents … according to the standards and understanding that we hold … greatly impacts our view of others, as well as our ability to hear what they are actually speaking.  When we remember more of the “bad things” that others have said or done, over and above the good, helpful, and loving things that the person has contributed to us (and to others) over time, we fall into the likelihood of having a large log blocking the vision in our own eye; presenting a skewing reality, which we vociferously claim to be truth.  Satan greatly manipulates memory, and the interpretation of painful history, to create bitterness, division, estrangement, suspicion, jealousy, mistrust, and hatred of others. Given that one of satan’s popular games is the blame game, we fall in line with satan’s agenda whenever we blame others.  Falling into his trap, we become tempted to reject the idea of loving someone (in the way that the Lord requires of His own), while being self-deceived that we have forgiven that other person to the degree that he/she deserves.  In the midst of our hardened heart toward someone, we forget the critical warning and the requirement that Yeshua declared in what we identify as “the Lord’s prayer”. FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE, WHO HAVE SINNED AGAINST US. It’s a scary reality to understand that as much as the Lord has freely forgiven us, He cannot apply that forgiveness to our sin, if we refuse to release another person (of what we feel is the debt owed to us because of the sin of another, committed against us). Full, Godly,  forgiveness extended to someone by us means that we are not OWED even so much as an apology from our perceived offender, before we forgive that other person. The Lord didn’t require repentance and penitence from us before He died for our sins.  True forgiveness means that whatever might be “owed” to us from another person, we entrust to the Lord for Him to be in charge of that account. Thus, we become free to love and to offer grace as the Holy Spirit leads us in our relationships. No longer will our flesh be allowed to lead us in our interactions with others (who are people just as imperfect as we are).  Too often, goaded by satan, we hold on to the “accounts receivable” and feel justified in withholding love, contact, kindness and generosity; particularly for minor offenses. True forgiveness is setting people free to the accountability of the Lord; for Him to determine and to collect whatever we think might be due us. The Lord alone has perfect vision of every hurtful or sinful event in our lives. He alone sees the depth of hearts and histories.  He alone is qualified and authorized to condemn or to cut off an individual from forgiveness or love. Unforgiveness will only increase our already imperfect vision of whatever has taken place against us. Unforgiveness puts us in a dangerous position before the Lord; concerning His forgiveness of our own shortcomings. I wonder how may unforgiving “feuds” might cost individuals their eternity with Him. It’s not worth the risk. Forgive!
--Pride and arrogance have the power to not only blind us to the truth, but these things can also cause our errant mindsets to be set in stone, and the emotional conclusions that we make (about ourselves and others) to seize ascendancy over the Lord’s perspective, and over His determinations in any situation. Pride causes us to think that we have it all figured out … that our recollection of words, motives, and actions are correct. Pride leads us to believe that we cannot extend shalom toward (or enter into relationship with) other people until things are done our way, or viewed according to our perceptions. Arrogance causes us to think that we are better, more righteous, more qualified, wiser, more correct in our thinking, more accurate in our memory, and more acute in our perceptions of situations or individuals. Pride and arrogance establish the largest logs in our eyes, while insuring our total inability to see them or to remove them.  Some wrongly apply the Amos 3:3 text, which is often translated as “How can any walk together, except that they agree.” They use this as an excuse to be estranged from those, who see things differently than we do. In reality the text translates as: “How can two people walk together unless they make an appointment to meet?” How can we walk in the same direction, pursuing shalom, unless pride is set aside and we humble ourselves to meet with an open heart in the presence of the Lord, to discover peace, truth, vision, and understanding in that divine meeting? So much misunderstanding and estrangement could be ended if this was the chosen course. So much ground could be taken back from satan! Sadly, pride often just doesn’t want to let things go until our flesh is satisfied with what we demand from others. As long as we operate more in flesh than in spirit, this will be a problem for us. Divisions will remain intact, and skewed vision will prevail wielding unholy power.  The Kingdom of YHVH will be dishonored, and blind error will continue to prosper. In addition, spiritual growth and maturity will be stunted at best, and thwarted most likely.
--Assumptions that form from a lack of truth or understanding of reality, can totally get us off track through skewing our vision. Filling in the blank spaces between facts, when forming our conclusions, rather seeking truth and understanding, is foolish and destructive.  Eccles. 10: 13 (In the New Living translation) says: “Fools base their thoughts on foolish assumptions, so their conclusions will be wicked madness.”
Perhaps this text could read, BLIND FOOLS BASE THEIR THOUGHTS ON FOOLISH ASSUMPTIONS. Surely the act of making assumptions is a manifestation of blindness, as well as one of foolish arrogance.  It is often quoted (a proverb that has been traced back to 1546 by John Heywood) that “there are none so blind, as those, who will not see” … meaning, those, who REFUSE to see are indeed the most blind.  When an assumption is established and takes root, it’s often very difficult to unseat it with the truth, because, in reality, an assumption is a falsehood (a lie).  Satan works relentlessly to fortify all lies. Rather than doing the work … i.e. investing the time to sit with a person to hear the heart and intentions of that person, or doing the research regarding a negative report, it’s so much quicker/easier to assume, to conclude, and to cement a response, or an unsubstantiated position, in our heart and mind. An assumption can be the application of a baseless falsehood; establishing it as our take on reality. Assumption are the fruit of laziness as well as of pride and deception.  If satan can’t get us to swallow an obvious lie, he will create an assumption that we can nibble on until our heart and mind are skewed in the direction of his intentional deception. Can we assume correctly? Yes, sometimes we can … but assuming is a very risky course to take for dealing with daily life, and when dealing with troublesome situations, and interacting with people around us. Our assumptions will be more often wrong than right. When they are wrong they can really create a mess for us and for others.
--Fear can totally distort our vision, perceptions, and hearing regarding reality. Fear of being wrong … fear of being less than someone else … fear of loss ... fear of being robbed (particularly of love or honor) … fear of being abandoned … fear of being out of control … fear of being a victim or of feeling unsafe … fear of being judged, etc. etc. etc.  Fear has the tendency to seriously throw our view and perceptions of reality into a spin of error.  It’s very difficult to process truth where fear has a platform to speak loudly. Where fear abides, love is stunted.  Where fear speaks, faith, truth, and love are often shouted down. We know that perfect love casts out all fear, but we forget that perfect love (and perfect anything) is found only in the Messiah … never in people.  Fear often demands perfection of others in order for the insecure to maintain control … to feel safe … to feel qualified … to feel capable.  Fear blinds individual to the truth that we have a good Father, who loves us unconditionally, and who orders all the elements in our life to take us through difficulties, and on into blessings, if only we allow Him to be the sovereign Lord over our life. If we forget that HE is totally in charge of the final outcomes, the world (and life in general) is perceived as totally terrifying. Meanwhile, lovely people are often seen as a threat rather than being recognized as the vessel of provided blessing, which the Lord intended for our lives.
--Insecurity can really blind us and mess with our perceptions. When insecurity demands “self-proving” to establish one’s worth or power in the eyes of others (or in one’s own eye), it may demand victory; thus, inventing perceived competition scenarios with others in order to win.  Insecurity can cause a skewing of vision toward secure and strong individuals; seeing them as a threat and as competition to be bested.  Insecurity often tries either to dominate others, or it tries to hide.  Insecurity may cause people to view others with a jealous, caustic eye, or it can close one’s eyes toward others, in order to keep the insecure one from seeing the truth; fearing a negative comparison.  Insecurity can manifest in argumentativeness, boasting, and legalism, or on the contrary, it can inspire someone to crawl into isolated silence. Either way vision and perceptions are manipulated to support a wrongful sense of power or of worthlessness. The Messiah already declared everyone’s innate value by dying a horrific death to buy us back from sin and death. Keep in mind that the spirits of Comparison and Competition are the servants of satan (and the propagators of insecurity) to deceive us into thinking that we have be more, or to do more than others in order to be qualified or valued. If we don’t “make the grade”, the skewed perception is cast into our self-vision that we are worthless. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Our security is totally in the Lord, and that is where our total identity and capability must reside.
I have just listed 7 common factors in our impaired vision of life and of other people. There are many more. However, now we need to give some attention to getting these influences out of our reflex responses, habits, and operations of heart and mind.
1: RECOGNIZE THESE THINGS IN YOUR OPERATIONS AND INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS
2:  ASK THE LORD TO SHOW YOU THE IMPACT OF THESE THINGS IN YOUR PAST AND PRESENT RELATIONSHIPS AND IN THE PAINFUL CIRCUMSTANCES OF YOUR LIFE.
3:  REPENT OF ALLOWING SATAN TO MANIPULATE YOU IN THIS WAY. ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM THE LORD, FOR THINKING AND BEHAVING THIS WAY. 
4:  FORGIVE … FORGIVE YOURSELF AS THE LORD FORGIVES YOU.  FORGIVE ALL THOSE, WHO HAVE TAUGHT YOU WRONGLY, OR WHO GAVE YOU WRONG INFORMATION. FORGIVE ALL THOSE, WHO HAVE HURT, DISRESPECTED, BETRAYED, OR WOUNDED YOU. ASK THE LORD TO BLESS THEM.  RELEASE ALL PAYMENT AND ALL RIGHTS OF JUDGMENT (THAT YOU HAVE CLAIMED AS BEING OWED TO YOU) INTO THE HANDS OF THE LORD. RELEASE AND CHOOSE TO LOVE; LETTING GO OF ALL BITTERNESS AND ANGER. 
5:  ASK FOR THE LORD TO HEAL THE WOUNDS AND TO RESTORE YOU FROM THE BROKENNESS SO THAT TRUTH, UNDERSTANDING, AND CLEAR VISION CAN COME. 
6:  ASK HIM TO HEAL THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE HURT WHILE YOU WERE OPERATING IN YOUR BROKENESS, BLINDNESS, AND SIN. ASK THEM FOR FORGIVENESS WHERE THAT IS NEEDED.
7: RENOUNCE AND REJECT THESE BEHAVIORS, ATTITUDES, AND STRATEGIES THAT HAVE BEEN OPERATING IN YOUR LIFE OR RELATIONSHIPS.
8:  ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO CHANGE YOUR HEART AND MIND TO CONFORM THEM TO THE HEART AND MIND OF THE MESSIAH.  ASK HIM TO GIVE YOU NEW WAYS OF RESPONDING, SEEING, HEARING, SPEAKING, AND ENGAGING. ASK HIM TO TAKE OFF AND TO DESTROY THE OLD, SKEWED LENSES AND FILTERS YOU’VE BEEN WEARING. GET USED TO A NEW WAY OF SEEING, THINKING, AND RESPONDING.
9:  SEEK AND RECEIVE AN ANOINTING OF HOLINESS, HUMILITY, SUBMISSION, OBEDIENCE, AND LOVE FROM THE FATHER.
10: BEGIN TO TAKE DOWN THE WALLS YOU HAVE BUILT, AND BEGIN TO LIVE IN FREEDOM AND VICTORY IN 2020.
In closing, I want to share with you an image that the Lord gave to me very early this morning.  
He showed me two people facing each other and standing about three feet from each other. They were laughing together and speaking to each other with love in deep friendship.  Two demons appeared above them, and started spitting down on their uncovered heads. Slowly, the light of love surrounding the two friends started to dim. A small cloud of mistrust began to form over them, right underneath the demon duo. When this happened, the demons conveniently provided each of the two people with their own pile of red bricks. When some misplaced, misunderstood, words were spoken, each person took some bricks from their individual pile, and created a single, end-to-end layer on the ground; marking out a boundary line between the two people that MUST NOT BE CROSSED. The demons began to rejoice. Then, the evil spirits drifted down onto the ground so that they could speak directly into the ears of the two people. Very quickly stronger suspicion, and deeper offense became embedded within their hearts. Two more layers of bricks were laid upon the boundary line; fortifying that which separated the two.  At that point each demon wrapped an arm around his personal victim on opposite sides of the growing wall. Instantly a dangerous level of trust and credibility developed between each human and his influencing demon. The power of the lies being spoken grew in dimension. As the negativity in the environment increased, more gleeful demons were draw to this scene of conflict and division. They poked at the humans in their lower back areas, as well as jabbed them with rods in their heads and hearts. This activity brought an increase in pain; particularly bringing up historical pain, as many old images of offense and hurt now filled their minds. That increase in pain caused the two former friends to harshly accuse each other, as they began shouting attacks so that others might be able hear their hateful assessments. By now the demons were dancing in delight. Several more layers of brick were added to the boundary line until it formed a high wall between the two former friends. Even though they could not see each other anymore, they could still hear the bitter, angry, words being spoken. Soon these former friends began to lob bricks over the wall in the hope of hearing a cry of pain from the other. The image ended here, but a strong rhema arose in my spirit.  Here is what I heard:
“If I was the chief priority in this relationship … if My children had been attentive and disciplined enough to apply the armor, which I have provided … this would not have happened. If they had sought and chosen to see with My eyes, and to hear with My ears, the deceptions would have been discerned, and these dark strategies would have utterly failed. Instead, raw, unhealed, human flesh was accessible to be seduced into sin by the ploys of the Enemy. These two friends chose to ignore the depth of love which I had provide for them over many years. Their offended flesh felt more comfortable in the embrace of the darkness, than in My embrace. Rather than calling out for My embrace to deliver them into the truth, they allowed the Accuser to have a voice to utter falsehood through them. They did not withdraw into Me together to consider that truth. Instead they reacted in the flesh.  Rather than drawing from My Spirit, they chose to draw from their own shallow, polluted, insufficient supply of human understanding. They each held their ground in blind, foolish, pride. They could have chosen to forgive at the first small insult. Instead, they allowed the spin of the Enemy to drown out the warnings, found throughout My word, regarding the dangers of harboring unforgiveness.  These two became weak as soon as they created a boundary to fortify their offenses, fears, and assumptions about each other.  Their actions sought to make sure that no meeting place for peace and reconciliation could be established.  
This is the trick of the Enemy!! Divide and conquer! Stir up pride, jealousy, offense, rage, suspicion and competition among My elect, so that they can be divided and conquered … so that their testimony to the unbelieving world is tarnished or stripped away   The fear of being defeated by the one, who was shouting on the other side of the wall, allowed historical memories of weakness and pain to threaten both of these two with projections of assured failure, if they were to give up the battle against each other.  Their minds and hearts … their emotions and their assumptions were stirred up so that they felt justified in cutting each other off totally. Their hardened hearts were a demonstration of the mortar hardening between the bricks supplied by the Enemy.  These two were unable to see the spiritual realities of the attack, because the lenses of love and holy truth had been removed.
Be aware and alert, little ones! This same strategy has been applied to each one of you. How will you respond?  Will stubborn pride call the shots, or will love prevail? Will you lay down all self-justification, all demands for apology, and set aside your right to be given a hearing to vent your spleen? Will you be willing to cut off all accusations harbored within your soul (regarding the other person) in order to walk away together from the grip of the Enemy … in order to renew a bond of love and peace; regardless of what transpired?  Will the false lenses, supplied by your flesh, and which were fogged up by the spittle of the Enemy, be allowed to assume the place of authority and influence above My love and truth bestowed upon all of you?  Stop now, and choose to love; giving grace to each other in all misunderstandings and failings. Do not give any credence nor any ground to the Enemy! Call out to Me quickly! Discern what flies over your heads and what seeks to wrap a comforting arm around your soul. Reject these things and cry out to Me to lead you through your conflicts and concerns. Stop keeping records of wrongs done to you. That is never justified and it is never loving. Do not pick up the first brick against each other. Drop it! Forgive, let go, and choose to love with a full heart. Do not reserve one fragment of offense for future reference. Give it all to Me, for I shall keep you safe, as I apply My wisdom to any infractions committed against you.  Extend mercy and grace to each other, or you make a sham and a mockery of My love, which has been freely given to you without conditions. Trust Me more than you trust anything, including your own thoughts, perceptions, and emotions … more than the words and viewpoints of anyone else.  
The battle is on. The enemy is making his move against all of My anointed ones, with the goal of stripping you of your anointing. Full well he knows that when love grow cold, he has a legal right to stake a claim in human affairs … especially within My Body. In this hour he comes to rob, divide, steal, kill, and disinherit.  Use all the facets of My love to defeat him. Stay close to Me, and stay close to each other, forming a protective perimeter that can be breeched only if you would choose to depart from My way, will, word, and heart. Stay with Me. Stand together and do not be moved by false images, by false accusations, and by deluding words. Be humble.  Finally, as was recommended to the congregation at Laodicea, ask Me now for holy eye salve that you may see.  You must see each other as I see you.  Your insufficient ability to see correctly, and your incorrect perceptions regarding each other, have been costly to this point, but these things shall be far costlier in the coming days. Ask for Me to give you My heart for each other, and I will happily give it.  Ask Me to side with your flesh, and I will refuse. Abandon your own lenses, and apply Mine. Then watch, Beloved … watch and see My Kingdom advance in giant steps!”
I pray that all of us will take this call of the Spirit to heart as we enter into 2020.  Please feel free to share this message with many … with anyone that the Lord calls you to share. The Lord has told me to set it free across the Body. The indication is that the Body of Messiah will be severely tested this year, and possibly from now on into the coming years until the Messiah returns. Satan has become more effective in dividing people during these past few years. Families of faith have members that no longer fellowship with each other, no longer tolerate each other, and no longer demonstrate true love toward each other. Trust has broken down very often because of political differences that have been accentuated as being plumb lines. As a result, hostility has risen in the hearts and minds of the people because of the lies of the Enemy.  Within the Body of Messiah, we have pro-Trump people building walls against “Never-Trumpers”. We have Remainers in the UK angrily walling off the Brexiteers.  We have anti-Bibi Netanyahu people angrily shunning believers who still support Netanyahu.  Many are taking the choices of others (that conflict with their own), as a person affront … and as evidence of a lack of wisdom and love.  All the while, satan is dancing in glee; watching his hoards gain access and power, where before they had been denied these things.  We simply must have our vision restored, so that our priorities can be restored to holy order; based in YHVH’s truth, where skewing has prevailed. Pettiness and offense have been given too much power. Pride is running wild, while offering justification for sinful attitudes, words, and actions within the Body of Messiah.  If we have been building walls, it’s time to stop. Drop the bricks, and start demolishing the walls. Remove the unholy boundary lines that have been established by pride, unforgiveness, assumption, and offense. We are NOT THE AUTHORITY.  We do not have 20/20 vision, but we have One, who can provide that for us, through applied corrective lenses comprised of His Word and Spirit. 
As we consider our New Year’s resolutions this year, let’s resolve to seek after the healing eye salve and the corrective lenses that are so readily available to those, who earnest seek them. Let’s resolve to deal with those things that have been obstructing or skewing our vision. And most of all, let us resolve to put love above all the failings and offenses; giving grace to each other as never before. The Lord has marvelous things planned for us. In order for us to apprehend those things, we have to make some vision changes. May it be said that when the year 2020 ends, 12 months from now, that it was the most amazing year of clear vision and unity that has ever been seen. May the Kingdom indeed advance in giant steps, and may the name of our God be glorified above all else.  Have a marvelous 2020! Good things lie ahead!
In Him,
Kathleen
