On 01 July 2021, The Word of THE LORD came to me expressly, saying:
“Before she was in labor, she gave birth; before her pain came, she delivered a male child.
Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day?
Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.
Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says THE LORD.
“Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your GOD.
“Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you who love her; rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her; that you may feed and be satisfied with the consolation of her bosom, that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.”
For thus says THE LORD: “Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; on her sides shall you be carried, and be dandled on her knees.
As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
When you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like grass; The Hand of THE LORD shall be known to His servants, and His Indignation to His enemies.
For behold, THE LORD will come with Fire and with His Chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His Anger with fury, And His Rebuke with flames of fire.”
He was speaking to me from Isaiah 66:7-15.
As written, THE LORD JESUS said:
“Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you. And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask THE FATHER in My Name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My Name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” John 16:20-24.
The time of birth is a most serious time. And one must ensure to get things right as it dawns.
The time of birth is the height of weakness in the whole pregnancy, yet requiring the mother in labour, to muster strength to pull…, well, PUSH through, to bring a new person into the earth.
Having been through months of pregnancy travails, she is now in labour pains, probably for hours, or even days; and she is exhausted with a curious concoction of pain, fatigue, and expectation.
But in that very climax and crucial moment, she must still find strength to push the baby out. She cannot afford to slack!
Midwifery activity around her ratchets up all the more when the crown of the baby’s head appears in the birth canal.
“PUSH! PUSH! PUSH!”, goes the encouraging chorus of the life-birthing cry for the mother to muster strength and DO it! Yes, to successfully give birth to the baby/babies.
This moment is where we are currently. We’ve had the pregnancy for so long (some for many years): all the prophecies and exhortations by GOD for this unprecedented season in the life of us His children.
And now we are at the time of birth. We must PUSH! PUSH! PUSH!
How do we push?
“Seek THE LORD and His Strength; Seek His Face evermore!” 1 Chronicles 16:11.
- By exceedingly seeking THE LORD much more now than ever before.
- By sitting at His Feet like Mary, and continually hear His Word.
(Study It and obey It. See Luke 10:38-42; Hebrews 5:9).
- By leaning our head in The Bosom of JESUS like John (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20)
— to know and do ONLY what’s on THE LORD’s Heart. We must ONLY move with His Heartbeat night and day. Anything beyond this, is a snare of the devil to steal, kill and destroy.
- By expressly hearing and obeying ONLY what THE SPIRIT expressly says.
- By fervently and continually praying with the spirit (tongues) and with the understanding with THE HOLY SPIRIT’s Utterance.
- By making decrees and declarations, yes, proclamations as THE HOLY SPIRIT gives Utterance.
(The Utterance of THE HOLY SPIRIT could be statements from dreams by Him, from visions and revelations of THE LORD, from Scriptures quickened by Him, etc.
The Word of GOD is like rain that waters the earth to make it bring forth and bud. The more you decree and declare It, the more and the sooner the harvest.
I’ve experienced this time and again.
It was a very poignant moment when I had an urgent need in the mission field during a very testing time. THE HOLY SPIRIT gave me a powerful Word to decree and declare for unceasing supplies:
“My bin of flour shall not be used up, nor my jar of oil run dry!“
This was from what Elijah told the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17:11-14.
VERY QUICKLY, after decreeing and declaring that Word repeatedly with saturation, THE LORD started sending and raining great supplies continually.
Also, some years ago, I was developing a product for the United Kingdom’s second largest supermarket.
During the ultimate phase of R & D (research and development), the contract manufacturer said to me in a telephone conversation that there was going to be a long delay of some weeks because of their increased workload. Yet, I needed the prototype for a very important meeting with the supermarket’s category buyer/manager.
I was displeased and anxious about the unpleasant development.
But, like David, I immediately encouraged myself in THE LORD, and sought Him.
THE HOLY SPIRIT gave me some Scriptures (updated and reproduced below).
If I recall correctly, the telephone conversation was on a Thursday.
I looked up the names of the senior executives of the contract manufacturer on the internet.
Throughout the weekend, mentioning the names — from the CEO to my contact manager — I decreed and declared repeatedly with saturation that the contract manufacturer’s management and staff will see to my product development quickly because:
in The Name of JESUS CHRIST, by The Word of GOD, through The Blood of The Everlasting Covenant, I find favour and high esteem in the Sight of GOD and man. I eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory I boast. The wealth of the sinner is laid up for me the righteous. The wealth of the Gentiles come to me. Therefore my gates are open continually; they shall not be shut day or night, that men may bring to me the wealth of the Gentiles, and their kings in procession. (Proverbs 3:4; 13:22; Isaiah 61:6; 60:5,11).
The contract manufacturer was in Wales, hundreds of miles away from our home just outside London. (I worked from a home office.)
Mid-morning on the following Monday, the video entry phone of our fifth-floor apartment rang. I lifted the handset with anticipation, and there on the screen appeared a courier delivery man in front of the building at street level, holding my product’s prototype in a special packaging (that I readily recognised from previous prototype delivery).
The man had barely finished announcing his delivery mission before I pressed the ‘open’ button to let him into the building. My members pleasurably warmed with surprise and joy as I waited for the delivery man to come up the lift.
My prototype — that the contract manufacturer had said just the previous Thursday (or so) could not be ready for some weeks — was delivered into my hand the Monday after the Thursday!
The Word of GOD is LIVING and POWERFUL!
The Word of GOD is LIVING and ACTIVE! (See Hebrews 4:12).
GOD created all things and is upholding them by The Word.
The Word of GOD controls all things. Therefore, with The Help of THE HOLY SPIRIT, decree and declare The Word to SHIFT things in your favour, to move things for your victory.
If the children of GOD will only recognise and grasp how ALL-POWERFUL The Word of GOD is and deploy It, there will be the days of Heaven on earth for The Church – more so, in these last days..
I still use the above Scripture montage/ combination today in various situations with exceedingly amazing results.
Last month, THE HOLY SPIRIT gave me a statement in a dream which I have been exceedingly using and getting favour with:
“I cover myself with THE BLOOD OF JESUS to have favour — ‘praising GOD and having favour with all the people.'”
The last half of the statement is from Acts 2:47 which I had been declaring prior to the dream.
“You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so Light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28.
In 1 John 1:5 and John 1:1-3, we know and understand that GOD is Light. And The Word of GOD is GOD.
When you deploy The Word, The Light will shine forth SPEEDILY to dispel and destroy the darkness for your victory. Hallelu-YAH!
As I shared on a previous occasion, a couple of years ago THE LORD directed a young and newly married couple my way. Total strangers.
They soon told me that the young lady, twenty-two years old at the time, was a few months pregnant.
In subsequent weeks and months, she frequently asked fervently that I prayed for her. I took her matter most SERIOUSLY, sensing THE LORD’s assignment of intercession.
THE HOLY SPIRIT helpfully directed me to use “the time of birth and delivery” Scripture, Isaiah 66:7-9, and other Scriptures, which I kept praying for her and over her — the rest of the pregnancy cycle — all the way into the labour ward.
The 22-year-old first time mother’s delivery experience? It was “easy“, she repeatedly testified to The Glory of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Beloved brethren, The Word of GOD is LIVING and POWERFUL! The Word of GOD is LIVING and ACTIVE.
I wrote sometime ago, that the creation account in Genesis 1 and 2 makes clear repeatedly, “And GOD said… and it was so.” As children of GOD, made in THE IMAGE of GOD, we must likewise say what He says and It WILL be so.
THE HOLY SPIRIT showed me something so WONDERFUL in Scripture last year.
Proverbs 18:21 says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” And the preceding verse makes a most AWESOME declaration about “the fruit of the mouth” and “the produce of the lips”.
The verse 21 concludes that those who love the power of the tongue (to use it GODly) will eat its fruit:
“A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:20-21.
Get bumper harvests of the fruit and produce of your mouth and lips and tongue by The Utterance of THE HOLY SPIRIT.
If you declare Utterance by His SPIRIT, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST will release what you need to you.
This beautiful, BIG and expanding universe was thus created by GOD Himself — when He loved and used The Power of Tongue. We must do likewise to create our GOD-ordained world).
- By prophesying your victory.
David prophesied his victory over Goliath before it manifested:
“This day THE LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a GOD in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that THE LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is THE LORD’s, and He will give you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:46-47.
Most importantly, before they all came to pass, The Birth, Death, Resurrection, Ascension and Return of our LORD JESUS CHRIST was REPEATEDLY prophesied by Enoch, Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zechariah, and others.
Before He VICTORIOUSLY died and rose again, THE LORD Himself repeatedly prophesied so according to The Scriptures.
The Outpouring of THE HOLY SPIRIT was also prophesied by Joel, Zechariah, et al. before It happened on The Day of Pentecost.
It is The Law of GOD: The Works of GOD must be prophesied to be manifested. PROPHESY your newness of life – that which is by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of GOD THE FATHER for your life.
When you prophesy The Word of THE LORD as moved by THE HOLY SPIRIT, the angels of GOD execute It into manifestation, heeding The Voice of His Word, (Psalm 103:20).
- By waging the good warfare with prophecy.
What GOD says He will do must NOT be mounted as a mantel piece or wall hanging. Having faith and good conscience, you must war with prophecy for it to be fulfilled. It’s a charge by GOD! It must be obeyed readily.
“This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, having faith and a good conscience…” 1 Timothy 1:18-19.
- By being like Abraham.
Do what he did to get the promise, and you will likewise get yours.
“He did not waver at The Promise of GOD through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to GOD,” Romans 4:20.
Don’t allow unbelief into your heart. Unbelief is a very serious sin that swiftly brings The Wrath of GOD, and causes Him to disinherit one. (See Hebrews 4).
Be strong in faith with The Help of THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Ask THE LORD to always have The Spirit of Faith, (2 Corinthians 4:13).
Keep giving Glory to GOD. Let giving Glory to GOD be more important to you than your very breath.
“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from The Living GOD.” Hebrews 3:12.
- By refusing to be discouraged or depressed, and rather have joy always.
You can’t afford to be downcast or depressed in this battle. Being discouraged or depressed is one of the deadliest weapons of the enemy to steal, kill and destroy.
“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 12:25.
If discouragement tries to sneak in, I would pray Isaiah 61 and/or applicable Psalms as led by THE HOLY SPIRIT. And immediately, JOY floods my whole spirit, soul and body.
Choose to be JOYFUL by The Help of THE HOLY SPIRIT. I learned this also mainly from Paul; he said: “I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation.” (2 Corinthians 7:4).
Satan is a miserable soul; being joyful destroys him. He can’t countenance joy. Joy brings The Presence of GOD for victory.
“The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, but who can bear a broken spirit?” Proverbs 18:14.
“A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.” Proverbs 17:22.
“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.” Proverbs 15:13.
“You will show me the path of life; In Your Presence is fullness of joy; at Your Right Hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11.
Furthermore, to release joy, laugh like GOD to confound the enemy, (Psalm 2:4; 59:8). Sing to GOD for joy. Dance to celebrate GOD. Lift up your hands in joyful praise to GOD. Oh, jump for joy! Hallelu-YAH!
- By electing to be strong in THE LORD and in The Power of His Might.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in THE LORD and in The Power of His Might.” Ephesians 6:10.
“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on THE LORD Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:30-31.
“If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small.” Proverbs 24:10.
“For consider Him [THE LORD JESUS CHRIST] Who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.” Hebrews 12:3.
- By always leaning on JESUS.
Depend totally on His sufficient Grace and perfect Strength.
Whenever weakness (inability/inadequacy) comes, I pray 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 to get strong.
- By being persistent in asking.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST repeatedly taught this revelation for having our prayers answered. (Please study Luke 11:5-13; 18:1-8).
If the prayer is according to The Will of GOD (1 John 5:14-15), then He WILL surely answer it if we persist in asking.
- By believing that whatever you ask according to The Will of GOD when you pray, you have received it.
As I shared in a Word recently, (What Jesus Said in a Dream: “Believe You Receive!”) in a dream on 30 May 2021, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST suddenly appeared to me.
And, standing by an olive tree, He started teaching me with utmost seriousness — like a high profile commanding officer in the military briefing his men and women just before heading into battle.
Recalling the events that occurred during the storm on The Sea of Galilee (Matthew 8:23–27; Mark 4:35–41; Luke 8:22–25), when the disciples were sinking in fear instead of rising up in faith, THE LORD said (in the dream, to believers) : “You must rise up in faith!“
Sitting as an only-student in class and giving Him fervent attention with all reverence, THE LORD said to me sternly with soberly serious demeanour: “I hope they remember what it means to receive. You will have to receive it, otherwise you will not rise in it [faith]”.
- By looking unto JESUS!
As aforetimes, again I say here: Faith is easy when you focus on JESUS.
When I look at The Word of GOD, when I look at His BIGNESS, when I look at the exceeding GREATNESS of His POWER — that He has ALL POWER and ALL AUTHORITY, yes, is ALL-POWERFUL, when I look at the heavens and the earth and the sea and all things in them which He has made, when I look at His Faithfulness — that He is EVER FAITHFUL, NEVER FAILING, my faith is greatly increased to overcome in any situation. GLORY to GOD!
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to GOD; and The Peace of GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through CHRIST JESUS.” Philippians 4:6-7.
- By prayer and praise.
Yes, by thanksgiving. These release The Power of GOD for victory SPEEDILY. I’ve practiced and experienced this time and again in very harrowing circumstances.
It is a warfare strategy I learned mainly from Paul and Silas:
“And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.” Acts 16:23-26.
- By being earnest in prayer.
With The Help of THE HOLY SPIRIT, always be fervent in prayer — discerning and alert in it, and be THANKFUL.
“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2.
- By prayer and fasting.
Paul said he was “in fastings often” (2 Corinthians 11:27). No wonder he lived such a VICTORIOUS life in CHRIST.
Some things won’t happen unless by fasting as led by THE HOLY SPIRIT, (Matthew 17:21).
- By pleading THE BLOOD OF JESUS and appealing to Him “that there should be delay no longer.” (Revelation 10:6).
As Leviticus 17:11 says, the life of the flesh is in the blood. THE BLOOD OF JESUS is The Creator’s Blood.
Therefore, there is Creator/ creating power, authority, ability, capacity, yes, all The Glory and Goodness of GOD in THE BLOOD OF JESUS to produce anything, do anything, make anything happen according to The Will of GOD when deployed, pleaded, prayed, used as led by THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Only THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST can redeem, release, set free and purify anyone, anything from the power of Satan. THANK GOD for The PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST! Hallelu-YAH!
- By praying The Power of CHRIST for immediate release and delivery.
The Power of CHRIST is THE all things-given POWER!
We are given all things by The Power of CHRIST — “as His Divine Power has given to us all things that pertain to life and GODliness”, (2 Peter 1:3).
Get it by The Power of CHRIST!
Furthermore, it is important to understand that The Power of CHRIST is both governmental and ‘electric’ – literally! (GOD is Light, remember?).
The Power of CHRIST exists and operates in creating, absolute governing authority, ability, capacity, electricity, Glory (GREAT brightness), velocity, etc.; and It’s ALL unlimited, Almighty, yes, ALL-POWERFUL!
(Let me tell you something quickly about GOD. His Invisible Nature is seen by natural things (Romans 1:20)
Trees show that JESUS is The Tree of Life, yes, The True Vine. The heavens show GOD is Most High, Lofty, BIG and unlimited. Fire shows that our GOD is THE Consuming Fire. Light shows that GOD is Light. And so on).
When released by faith and prayer, The Power of CHRIST can give you anything and heal you of anything! Just make any GODly demand on The Power of CHRIST to supply your need.
When that brave woman was healed, “…JESUS said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived Power going out from Me.”” (Luke 8:46) emphasis added.
“And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for Power went out from Him and healed them all.” Luke 6:19 emphasis added.
Let The Power of CHRIST flow for your victory! Demand The Power of CHRIST.
- By asking THE LORD, The Breaker, to breakthrough for you like a breakthrough of water — with “Master of Breakthroughs” (Baal Perazim — 2 Samuel 5:20).
Let The Waymaker make the way for you. Tell Him to go over before you as The Consuming Fire and burn up the enemy, yes, melt the hills at The Presence of THE LORD.
And, as Isaiah and Zechariah say, let His Glory be your rearguard; let GOD be your rearguard. And that THE LORD be seen over you for favour.
- By asking GOD for “all riches” (both physical and Spiritual), all things are now ready, furnished and prepared, (Colossians 2:2,3; Luke 14:17).
- By crying out to GOD to have mercy on you.
Like blind Bartimaeus, cry out and say, “JESUS, Son of David, have mercy on me!” And He WILL immediately. (Mark 10:47).
Having seen repeatedly in Scripture that every time someone or a group of people cried out saying “JESUS, Son of David, have mercy on me!”, or “JESUS, Master, have mercy on us!”, He came through for them, I also started doing the same — in faith, and He has been coming through for me too. (Please see Matthew 15:21-28; Mark 10:46-52; Luke 17:11-19 ).
JESUS CHRIST is the same yesterday, today and forever. What He was and did on earth, He still is and does today from Heaven on earth.
“JESUS, Son of David” is a POWERFUL prophetic declaration of The Messiah, The Deliverer.
Whom else have we in Heaven to deliver us? Only GOD, only JESUS!
- By asking for MORE!
Ask for more of GOD, yes, ALL of GOD and His Promises. Our LORD JESUS CHRIST revealed a Law of GOD: “to you so hear [believe and obey] more will be given.“ (Mark 4:24).
As heirs of GOD and joint-heirs with CHRIST, it’s ALL for us through THE CROSS. It is ALL available for our taking: Both GOD and His Promises. Therefore, ASK! ASK! ASK for more! (See Matthew 7:7-11).
- By asking GOD to send His holy angels to assist with the delivery to you, (Hebrews 1:14).
- By keeping yourself unspotted from the pollutions of the world.
You can only see THE LORD by holiness. As written, without holiness no one will see THE LORD, (Hebrews 12:14).
- By repenting readily if you miss it.
Repentance brings times of refreshing (blessing) from The Presence of GOD. Repentance releases healing from all the oppression of the devil.
“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that Times of Refreshing may come from The Presence of THE LORD, and that He may send JESUS CHRIST…[to deliver you!],” Acts 3:19-20.
- By purity, by knowledge [Knowledge of GOD, His Word, Ways, Love, Mercy, Righteousness, Glory, Power, Punishment, etc.], by longsuffering [enduring patience], by kindness, by THE HOLY SPIRIT, by sincere love, by The Word of Truth, by The Power of GOD, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honour… (1 Corinthians 6:6-8).
There is a lot more to do at the time of birth in THE SPIRIT. But the foregoing is all I’m able to share for now.
May THE LORD reveal more to you as you seek Him fervently till His Appearing in the air to receive us to Himself forever.
Brethren, the baby is coming down the birth canal right now. Therefore, we must neither slack off nor slumber nor sleep nor be lagging in diligence.
Let us PUSH! PUSH! PUSH! For it is the time of birth. And THE LORD is causing the delivery. Right now.
“You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come.” Psalm 102:13.
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.

Jacob, an apostle of Jesus Christ by The Will of God, according to The Promise of Life which is in Christ Jesus, (2 Timothy 1:1).
As John was, Jacob is the disciple whom JESUS loves, (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20). And like Paul, Jacob is “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
