Unity – in the marriage


Dear brothers and sisters,
We just restarted the ministry after a time of deep pruning  (John 15:1- 3).

“I am the real vine, and my Father is the gardener.  Every branch which is part of me but fails to bear fruit, he cuts off; and every branch that does bear fruit, he prunes, so that it may bear more fruit”

Dying to self, is about removing the flesh and learning to walk in the Spirit, 24-7-365.

But pruning is about you have been bearing fruit, what will be pruned, because then it can come back more abundantly!

While we are busy with the preparation of the website’s and other issues, the team is praying a lot for us both!

This evening they called us, they received a word from the Lord.  There was still something not quite right.  The word membrane was given ~ and the Lord led me to the picture you see underneath here and I saw the line: The ‘Baby That Didn’t Know It Had Been Born’ ~ meaning for us, but also for all of you, we still did /do not walk in the truth as it is, and for us, in the renewed and refreshed ministry as it should be, and we still did not grasp the deep meaning of walking in our call together as ONE!


Born in the caul

Do you see the picture?  This child thinks it is still in the womb it cannot move it lays there until someone will remove the sack.

Meaning for us: remove the scales from our eyes!

The Hebrew word for Mother is Eema.  Also written as Ima IaM.  “I Am” is also the name the Lord has given Himself!

So He is both mother and Father!  Hear Oh Israel, thy God is ONE!

If we want to show HIM in His splendor and glory, we must become one!  Most important of all : the unity in the marriage!

I have been giving teachings about unity in His Spirit, but now he is going deeper in the unity in the marriage and between male and female.

Abba led me to a teaching of Wim Janse!  It is both in Dutch and English!  Click the blue links below.  It is about the completeness of the Body of Yeshua, as Adam was complete after he received Eve from the Lord!  Read the teachings it is truly awesome!

This evening however, the Lord makes it also clear that we need to take a stand now, NOT ONLY on behalf of all those women, His daughters, whom He calls but who are oppressed by religious spirits, and who are not able to walk in the call He truly gives them!

But also for the brothers, who do not understand that it is truly important we become one!  In the Spirit is no Male or Female, Jew or Greek, Free or Slave.

There is Godly order, a man is the priest of the household, the 5-fold ministry is the leadership of the church…. servant leadership!   But please think about: Miriam, Esther, Deborah, and so on, the Lord is calling also women!

Until the bride is mature, a holy priesthood a holy nation.  We as husbands and wive’s, must stand together in HIS ministries to equip those who need to be equipped.  The Lord is calling FATHERS AND MOTHERS!  They will show HIM in all His splendor and glory!  To help the others to stand also… so finally the sons ( male and female) of God will come visible so Yeshua can come back, for a bride without blemish spot and wrinkle!

“Furthermore, he gave some people as emissaries, some as prophets, some as proclaimers of the Good News, and some as shepherds and teachers.  Their task is to equip God’s people for the work of service that builds the body of the Messiah, until we all arrive at the unity implied by trusting and knowing the Son of God, at full manhood, at the standard of maturity set by the Messiah’s perfection   Ephesians 4:11-13.

Unity – in the marriage — 4 Comments

  1. I thank you for the article on marriage.  I ran across this website by accident, but read a lot of your prayers.  My husband and I are separated and he is living with another woman.  I pray our marriage will heal and come back together.  He is off drugs, but he still drinks and the lady he is with use to be married and says she sympathizes with me, but she also sells alcohol at her home and that is how they met.  He still calls me, but I asked him not call because he only calls when she is at work and if I call while she is home he gets agitated with me by raising his voice, so I feel like the other woman.  I have asked the Lord to help me concentrate on my life with Jesus.  I don’t won’t to love my husband more than I love Jesus.  Thank you and the team for the many published prayers.  There is more to the story, but I have said enough.  My memory is not good sometimes and I thank you for the prayers I can read.

  2. SHALOM and Blessings Catharina, Not by Might not By Power By His spirit, the birthing has begun and happening amen, look forward to reconnecting in 2015, Father has had you on my heart and in prayer/intercession
