mikehill4jesus “The War between what the Flesh wants and what the Spirit of God wants.”
21st July 2016 (10.49) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
To Pastors and Leaders
It is my heart-felt desire for the Church family world-wide, but especially in the area that I live, to be built up and for God to be glorified in every endeavour. For the Church not only to reach out in evangelism to win the ‘lost’, but also to make ‘disciples who in turn will serve boldly in these Last Days.
Since 1977, it has been my privilege and joy to be used of God to witness for the Lord Jesus to many Pastors and other Leaders in their work. As God has given Prophetic insights and signs and wonders so I have seen them struggle to gain a much clearer vision of God’s purposes.
This in turn has resulted in failure and disappointment as one initiative after another has come to nothing and a growing lack of confidence and impetus in the work of God.
My Friends in Christ Jesus our Lord, the Rev. Ken Newton and his wife Jean, once said that God is looking for ‘Joshuas” – who will do things God’s way, knowing that God will be with them
all the way.
Joshua 1:5 ‘No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.’
They, as I, had their struggles but it was our Joy to be able to testify to this BIBLICAL TRUTH, even now, today!
In 1977 while living in Mountsorrel, I was called by God, through the Holy Spirit, to engage in Spiritual Warfare. In 1985, the Lord Jesus appeared to me and asked if I was serious. In 1986, while a student at the Birmingham Bible Institute, Ken Newton was used by the Holy Spirit to encourage me to be strong in my FAITH. Shortly after, I was sent by God to witness and minister for my Lord Jesus in Switzerland and Germany (I have photographic evidence). In 1987, while still at the Birmingham Bible Institute, Ken was again used, in front of many witnesses, to give the Lord’s COMMANDS for me and a prophecy for the future of both myself and my family.
Since that day in 1987, the Holy Spirit has used me in Spiritual Warfare; Witnessing for my Lord Jesus; Helping victims of abuse in ways that are amazing; Helping God’s people; And having myself fully examined by many of those in power. I AM KNOWN!
Ken & Jean Newton , believed that 1998 would bring tremendous new opportunities for me in the area of service to which God has called me. In fact they had written to me on this point in 1992, shortly before I was to minister to Ken in Sparkbrook, Birmingham – I was already using my Spiritual Gifts to support his Ministry around the world.
I am uplifted in my struggle here in Birmingham and elsewhere because as a member of Christ’s Body, I know that my Brothers and Sisters in Christ pray for me that God will open Doors to His Churches that I might have the fruitfulness He desires. I pray continually for them and for our Enemies.
The Apostle Paul taught in Ephesians 4:11 ‘So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.’
This is not about Mike Hill, it’s about the Body of Christ here in the world today! All working under the leadership of the Lord Jesus, that His Fathers will be done, here on earth and in the heavenlies.
Spiritual Warfare is a REAL war, not just a religious term. The war is between the sinful human FLESH and the holy SPIRIT of God. A conflict that is real! Of those in the Church who want what they want and those who want what the Holy Spirit wants. I have witnessed this conflict since 1977 and at times before that.
The Holy Spirit continues to use me in an attempt to mobilise the true Churches for this VITAL Spiritual Warfare. Therefore, do contact me if you wish me to pray and assist you to maximise the fruitfulness of the ministry. I am called to serve not lead, to enable not control, to encourage not discourage, to witness, testify and teach. It is a natural ministry, not a RELIGIOUS ministry. And people will testify to that. It’s a ministry based on love, goodwill, benevolence and spiritual power. Sadly, it’s a ministry that many refuse to benefit from.
As the Powerful and true Lord Jesus promised in John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
On Gods side are those the Lord describes in v23. On the Devils side are those in v24
May God receive the Glory in all things.
In the Love of Jesus,
The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: no immoral, impure or greedy person – such a person is an idolater – has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible – and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:
‘Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.’
15 Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We must respond to what the Holy Spirit wants before our lives end or the Lord Jesus returns in Power to destroy the evil of this world. The time for true repentance and total obedience to the teachings of the Lord Jesus is NOW!!!!!
