Ever since Adam gave over the rule of this earth to Satan, evil has increased across this planet.
On January 6th 2009 I got up early in the morning, light was breaking through the darkness but the sun was not yet up.
As is my custom, I brewed a cup of tea and settled in my study to pray. The morning was warm with the tropical temperatures of Queensland Australia, where I live.
I closed my eyes to pray and without warning I was somewhere else. I found myself walking with the Lord down a long road. The Lord never spoke, we just walked.
After a while I began to tire, slowing my pace somewhat. The Lord looked at me and as He did, it became much lighter and I felt strength flowing into me. We continued to walk and again it became darker.
Suddenly a great fortress-like structure loomed out of the darkness and with this came a great sense of foreboding, which threatened to overpower me. I wanted to turn back, but to my dismay, the road behind me had disappeared. I have never been a person to panic, but this situation was different.
I could feel a living, menacing darkness and evil all around me. I instinctively stepped closer to the Lord and as I did, I became aware of a very powerful angel. I had encountered this angel before on another occasion and knew that he was supremely confident in his ability as a high-ranking warfare angel.
I immediately began to feel more secure. The thought then went through my mind, why did I not feel this with the Lord, He is far more powerful than this angel?
Knowing my thoughts, the Lord turned to me and smilingly said, “This angel has that affect on people. It is part of his job profile.”
I looked at the towering walls of the fortress that appeared totally impregnable. Turning to the Lord I said, “What is this place?” Turning to me He said, “It is a fortress of darkness where Satan keeps some of his prize captives.”
I pondered this for a while, trying to comprehend the meaning of the Lord’s statement, and why He had brought me to this place when He continued.
“There are Kings of the earth and one Queen here to whom I gave great authority in order for them to rule in righteousness, but Satan seduced them into using their authority for selfish gain and personal prestige and now they are his prisoners.”
With that the Lord said “Come,”and we walked right through the walls.
The interior of this fortress was very large with many corridors and ante-rooms. The Lord continued, “I gave them their authority and power but they surrendered it to Satan and now he has usurped the authority I gave these Kings and this Queen.
Now you are to retrieve the power and authority I gave them, that’s why I have brought you here. Their power and authority was given to them as human beings and can only be retrieved by a human.”
At that point I thought, “Why me? I live a quiet life high in the mountains of Queensland, how did I get into this? There has to be some spiritual Indiana Jones who could do this.”
As my vision became clearer, I could see that these four Kings and a Queen were imprisoned in a cell. Three of them still had crowns on their heads but looked totally dishevelled, more like a street person than royalty.
The sense of hopelessness was overpowering and began to erode any confidence I had left. I could hear moans and other noises which I tried to shut out but could not. I just wanted to get out of this place.
After a while, a resolve came over me to get this done as quickly as possible. I refused to think about the possibility of not making it out of here, although the thought haunted me in the background of my mind.
The scene changed suddenly and we were now in another very large room which was set up with many display cabinets. Demons were everywhere in this place, watching us but keeping their distance. On the walls were what looked like giant slugs which emanated an awful smell.
There were some glass displays where the glass had been broken and the display was empty. This was one of Satan’s trophy rooms and quite a few of his trophies were missing.
It was then I noticed another glass display cabinet which contained an ornate chest, which appeared to be made of gold, with silver trimmings and a dark red sash draped over it.
I opened the cabinet, removed the chest and lifted the lid. As I did so, out of it flowed the most beautiful colours I had ever seen.
There were seven colours in all which merged into one beautiful brilliant cloud-like glory substance. The colours kept separating and merging as they seemed to dance above the chest. This had a kind of mesmerising affect on me which was broken by the Lord’s voice. “Close the lid, take the chest and follow me.”
With that, the colours merged and just flowed back into the chest. I picked up the chest, closed the lid and started to follow the Lord. As we walked past the cell where the four kings and the Queen were, and who were screaming at me, I also could hear the voices of many demons pursuing us with great anger and fury. But I became totally focused on getting out of this fortress.
The outer wall of the fortress came into view and I began to run at the walls hoping that I could run right through them, which was the case. As soon as I passed through the walls I was in another place.
We were now in a part of heaven that looked like a glorious trophy room, filled with what appeared to be transparent cases made of light, resting on intricately carved golden bases.
The chest I had, was taken by and angel and placed in a display cabinet. There seemed to be hundreds of things on display, many of which I cannot now remember.
However, I do remember seeing some displays with years written on ornate-like paper. On one I saw were written the years 1977–2010. I immediately understood that this meant that what was lost in those years, would be redeemed and multiplied from 2010 on.
I also had understanding that within the chest that emanated the seven colours of the rainbow, (which were the seven Spirits of the Lord), were also crowns and other things representing authority.
I understood that these items representing authority, would become available and bestowed upon those in this final hour, who were persuading God with all their heart.
This King and Queenly authority is now becoming available for this End-Time generation: the present generation, foreordained by God. You are absolutely meant to be alive in this hour!
Just as suddenly as this had begun, it ended, and I was sitting in my office looking out across a valley to the mountains on the other side. My tea was now cold and the sun was heralding a new day.
This was not a dream. I had not fallen asleep. The Lord had taken my spirit to another realm, a realm far more real than this physical realm. I believe these four Kings and the Queen were real people who had lived on this earth.
So what is to be derived from this experience?
In the days that followed this experience, the Lord began to give me some understanding, at least in part, concerning this experience.
God is about to release a level of authority to the church that will astonish the world. This authority is given to enable us to establish in this earth the rule of Jesus; it is to bring His kingdom to earth in a way that reflects His Kingdom in heaven, and the sceptre or focal point of His throne is that of righteousness.
“Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre,” Psalm 45:6.
“But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom,” Hebrews 1:8.
Ever since Adam gave over the rule of this earth to Satan, evil has increased across this planet, unrighteousness prevails and darkness is the result.
The prophet Isaiah spoke of these days when he said there will come a time when gross darkness will cover this world. But Isaiah also said at that time the glory of the Lord shall arise and be seen upon many of God’s people.
God is about to bring forth a people who will make things right in this world ushering in a thousand years of righteousness.
Satan has stolen from the church much of what God had given to His people, starting with Adam.
God gave Adam great authority to rule this earth; he was made king of this planet. His training and proving ground was a garden.
If Adam had proved to God that he could be trusted with authority to rule this earth, his dominion would have been over the entire planet.
Adam handed over the authority he had to Lucifer, giving Lucifer what God had intended for His own people.
These thefts of God-given anointings, mantles and giftings have been stolen through sin, disobedience and by many just laying down what God had entrusted them with.
When this happens the enemy takes them captive and can use these for his Satanic purposes. I saw many things that Satan had in his trophy cabinets in hell.
I saw an area where there was a level of worship that Satan had stolen, which he was using to worship himself. The level of devotion and worship that Satan had stolen was of a very high standard and was being used by his followers for Satanic worship.
In these days much is being restored back to God’s people that have been lost and one of these is true authority. Adam gave away his authority to Satan, but God is about to raise up a people who can be entrusted with the authority Adam had, in order to bring heaven back to this earth.
They will have the Authority of God in their mouth and what they say speak or decree will be established as reality.
What you say has consequences. The ability to communicate by using words is fundamental to all human beings. The planet on which we live is saturated with words as more than seven billion people daily fill the atmosphere with them.
The airwaves are filled with words transmitted from television and radio stations, we are literally bombarded constantly with words that have power that release energy, of which we have very little understanding.
As we approach the end of the age, God plans to release governmental authority to those who are able to handle it.
This authority exercised in partnership with the Lord will be so awesome that it will become one of the greatest wonders of the age.
Literally what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 21 will become a hallmark of those who have learned the power of their words, and have become disciplined in their use. “You will have what you say” will be manifest in its fullest degree.
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive,“Matthew 21:21-22.
“The wisest man that ever lived apart from Jesus, King Solomon, said this. Death and life are in the power of the tongue,”Proverbs 18:21.
This was not an idle statement; it exposed the awesome power of words. Whatever we say releases life or death. There is no middle ground here; it is one or the other, life or death.
Jesus made it clear that we all will be accountable for the words we speak. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and bythy words thou shalt be condemned,”Matthew 12:35-37.
The word idle here is from the Greek word “argos” which has the meaning of a thoughtless word, or without thought. Our words are creative, they create life or death and because of this reality we will have to give an account for that which we have created. We know that sound is a vibration.
If you place your hand over a bass speaker when music is being played you can feel the vibration. We now know that atoms vibrate right down to their lowest components, and atoms are the building blocks of our physical world. Our words are creative, and God said this.
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it,”Isaiah 55:11.
God said when He speaks, His words will return having accomplished something. We also know that we are made in the image and likeness of God, we are of the same species as God, that is why God calls us His sons.
Because we were fashioned in God’s image and likeness we have creative powers, the power to create life or death which manifests itself in our physical world. We have Godlike qualities, which we have inherited from our Father God, namely the scary ability to create with words. This ability is one of the most fundamental realities of life.
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer,” Psalms 19:14.
One of the most profound statements in the Bible regarding words is found in Hebrews chapter one and verse three.
“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power …” Hebrews 1:3.
Theses words are more than just ink on paper; they are the words of God! They emphatically state that everything we can see around us is held together by the “Words of God.”
Everything in the physical world and everything in the unseen spiritual realm continue to exist because of the words of Jesus.
The Apostle James also made an insightful statement that powerfully illustrates the power of words; He said that our lives, destiny, and final destination is governed by our words Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
“Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell,”James 3:3-6.
James here likens our tongue to that of a ship’s rudder or a bit in a horse’s mouth. It directs our whole life. He further went on to say something that is astounding, that if we control our mouth we have reached a level in God that he described as being perfect.
“For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body,”James 3:2.
The words: able to bridle our whole body is also astounding. The Greek word for bridle is chalinos, meaning; to curb restrain hold in check. Our physical body responds to the words that we speak.
Remember Jesus said you shall have what you say. As our authority levels increase the consequences of what we say will also increase. I am not talking about new age positive thinking, I’m talking about a God given ability to create with words.
As we learn to co-create with the Lord we will begin to see astounding things happen culminating in this planet being returned to a paradise again.
This reality of having what you say materialise is remarkable, it cuts through the maze of theology we often get entangled with and gets right to the heart of the matter.
Jesus used very simple words to describe and define complex issues, at least issues that seem complex to us. Yet the words He spoke have the ability to penetrate deeply into the hearts of men.
Why was this? Well He Himself said this; the words I speak are spirit and life. Jesus was saying that there was another element added to His words, that of Spirit which imparted life.
When a person is born again and baptised in the Holy Spirit another dimension is added to the words we speak, which makes our words even more potent. This is a frightening thought.
The Apostle James was speaking to spirit filled Christians when he said, “Why is it that both sweet and bitter water comes out of your mouth, blessings and curses?” James was not addressing these words to the unsaved, but to Christians.
“Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?” James 3:9-11.
We see the importance of the words that we speak; they go out and begin to create according to the intent of those words, they continue on to influence our lives and that of others. Your world to a large degree is shaped by the words that you speak.
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: ….”Proverbs 23:7.
Words have the power to form your personal world; we constantly create because that’s who we are: creators made in the image and likeness of God, (Proverbs 23:7).
God is now releasing greater levels of Authority, Wisdom and Understanding.
We are called to restore what Adam lost and move into the authority and wisdom that he was given.
We are called co create with God and bring heaven down to this earth. Jesus clearly told us to pray for this to happen.
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven,”Matthew 6:9-10.
Adam’s role was to bring the ways, culture, and reality of heaven to this first planet called Earth. He gave that away to the devil.
Now we in this last generation must complete what Adam failed to do, which is to bring the reality of heaven to this earth displacing the Devil and his angels and ushering in the Millennium reign of Jesus on this earth.
