This is the entire booklet. You can read it right here or you will find a PDF download link at the bottom of this page.
If you are suffering from some illness, depressions, poverty or emotions that come and go at will, then this booklet is for you.
The following booklet is an extract from the seventh book, “The Twelfth Room”. As you read, you may not understand some of the statements because you might not have read all my books. All seven books were written in exactly the form I received revelation from the Lord. All the books are full of photographs of sculptures, paintings and sketches that you, the reader, will have need of, to understand the spiritual realm.
The question most asked is: “Why does God not help us—Where is the blessing?”
Most of the prayers of Christians go un-answered. Most Christians are the broken- hearted and the captives. If you had to make a list of all the disappointments that have happened in your life it will be a long list; where are these disappointments right now? They are still in the subconscious, we were never taught to take them to the cross. You see Jesus came to save us from those thoughts out of the past that still make it into the mind. It is the failures, embarrassing moments, hurts and lust of the flesh that we need to be saved from. These old thoughts are strongholds and cause sickness and poverty. This little book is designed to introduce you to the way Jesus saves us. There is a lot of information you are still in need of, but at least you can learn what sin actually is, and how to cope with it at the cross. After 40 years of personal intensive study, I have discovered that it is the state of the conscience that dictates whether God can bless us or not.
We are all born with the same conscience and realise that it functions with moral laws, which are the commandments of God. Without these laws, there is social chaos.
Luther said: “How can there be sin if there is no law”. F.B. Meyer says: “The conscience is the most delicate instrument in the universe and the slightest speck of sin on the conscience causes it to be seared or clouded.”
I will try to explain: Most of us say that our conscience is clear, as Paul also states; but God is the judge.
The moment we give our lives to Christ Jesus the light of the Holy Spirit comes and dwells in us. Do you remember when you first gave your life to the Lord Jesus? The person, who prayed with you, led you to ask the Lord to forgive your sins and wash you with the blood of Jesus. Immediately your conscience was cleared and you felt light and release from darkness, little miracles began to happen and everything was wonderful. But it did not last long for sin, in the form of offence, worry and all the other things listed in Galatians 5 made it back onto your conscience.
God could be described as a sun who shines all the time; the moment sin comes onto the conscience, His light can no longer shine through into your being, therefore your dirty conscience causes the blessing to be cut off.
The conscience is like the surface of the sea, when the sea is stormy, dark and murky the light cannot penetrate into the deep. We are ‘the deep’ on which the Spirit of God moves and says: “Let there be light!” Genesis 1.
But it doesn’t stay this way for long because we allow the deep to come back on to the surface.
The word ‘deep’ is translated as ‘wicked, sorrow and ignorant’, it is the part inside of us that we are ashamed of.
This lower emotional state inside us is sometimes described by the Bible as being ‘animal, lust and jealous’. This lower nature inside of us is the breath God blew into Adam and he became a living soul.
When these lower emotions rule in the mind; the beast is on the sea.
The twelve rooms I am about to introduce to you is proven logically in the sixth book, ‘The Spiritual Sea’, but we would much prefer if you read all the books before reading the sixth.
Because ‘The Twelve room prayer’, has helped so many people, we have decided that everybody should know about it and use it for enlargement of their territory.
It stands to reason that the mind is very large and can be divided into twelve sectors or areas and for the purpose of my study I am referring to the mind as a twelve room house. We are the house of God; and just like all other houses, the house is divided into different rooms. A house has an entrance hall, kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and so on. The arrangement of your personal house is your own choice but the first four rooms are arranged according to the route the priest had to use to enter into the tabernacle.
First: The Altar, Outer court.
The outer court is where sin in the heart was dealt with. In the New Testament, Calvary is our outer court. This is where we become a living sacrifice (Rom 12:1) as Jesus showed us to do by being crucified physically. We follow His example in the spirit.
Secondly: The Wash Basin, Outer court
Still in the outer court it is not really another room. We wash at the wash basin. We need to be sanctified with the blood of Jesus.
Heb 10:22: “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.”
Thirdly: The Holy Place
We enter the Holy Place. This is where we honour the Holy Spirit
Fourthly: The Holy of Holies
Fourthly we enter the Holy of Holies. We can actually go to our Father in heaven if we follow the rules. The rules are don’t go to God with troubles. Crucify the things of the flesh. (Gal 5:24)
Make sure you leave all that made you tired and heavily laden in the cross. Make sure that you have forgiven and that your conscience is sanctified and blood washed. It is the Holy Spirit who shows us what to die to. When we get to the Father we are only thankful. This is the state of grace. Because of Gods merciful goodness we can die to the flesh, leave the troubles and worries in the cross. Then we go to God to be thankful. We are now on the saved side of the cross, in Christ, free, saved and above. This is where we live graciously with a thankful heart. Of course we have things we would like to discuss with our Father. In the past we took everything to one place. We are learning that God is a God of order. God wants to create space in our thoughts; this is the territory in us that has to be enlarged.
Pro 4:23: “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
The issues of our lives are things like our safety, relationships, our tasks, health, finances and so on.
We have to learn to guard our hearts so that our issues could be from God. We are going to create different spaces in side our thoughts where all of our issues are organised. These spaces inside us lay dormant and need to be opened and cleansed by the Holy Spirit. So the first 4 rooms are the 4 steps I just described.
The reason why I chose Finances as my fifth room initially is because the first four disciples Jesus chose were fishermen and the fifth was Mathew the tax collector. However this has changed because safety is our first consideration.
The reason for the number twelve is because it is used so frequently in the Bible; Twelve tribes, twelve disciples, twelve manner of fruit on the tree, twelve gates to the heavenly city and so forth. We also found twelve main nerves in the brain. Once again all these are discussed in depth in ‘The Spiritual Sea’ book number six.
Do you not agree that it would be like heaven if we could keep our minds for one day?
But we are open to the sea of emotions that come and go at will into the mind. The mind is of course the prize, and the highest place. Whoever controls the mind today is ruling and seated on our throne.
Rev 3:21: “Unto him who overcomes I will give to sit with me on my throne.”
The holy war within us is ongoing and when we make Jesus the Lord of our lives, He is the captain of the soul. He is the leader of the heavenly armies who fights for the blood washed conscience. The enemy is our lower emotions the will, intellect and feelings. When these win the day, the blessing is gone, but we have the cross and the blood, and tomorrow the fight goes on as we overcome and become free. We will no longer be slaves to feelings. We become spiritual!
I have been using the following arrangement of my twelve rooms with great success and are enclosing it for your personal scrutiny and perhaps adding to your own rooms. Remember you can add rooms as your needs change. The idea of this booklet is to give you an example on which you can build your own house. The reason why certain things are done in certain rooms is because our minds must be ordered. God is a God of order and discipline; we need clean and orderly minds.
When I wake up I might start with Psalm 103. In my own words: This is the way I take thoughts captive.
2 Cor 10:5: “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
Bless the Lord all my soul and all that is within me!
I am commanding all that is within me to bow before the Lord God. I am exalting God into my highest place, above all else and I think of nothing else but the fact that all the mind must humble itself before God. Even the problems must bow, every knee will bow every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord. (Php 2:10)
Thank you Father I am your dwelling and your temple!
The fact that the same Creator who created all the earth and the marvels that happen in it, the sun that rises on time every morning, the babies that are born continually with marvellous individuality, the sea that roars, the creator of all, lives inside me. My mind must look like a rising morning sun now and I imagine the sun that rises over the ocean.
Please forgive me! (v3)
Now we consider the state of the conscience, because I have sinned. Here I begin to take all of yesterday captive, and recall if worry has made it into my mind, anger or envy, worry or fear and so on. I ask God to bring to mind sins I might have committed unknowingly. These thoughts are death thoughts, the Bible calls it carnality Rom 8:6 they cause toxic branches in the brain. It means that the beast is on the sea, and the Holy of Holies is defiled, the conscience darkened and the house does not fully belong to the Lord. The accuser can accuse.
Please heal me! (v3)
I am dying because toxic thoughts have made a stronghold in my mind, all sickness and poverty comes out of fear-filled thoughts; the conscience is clouded. I need to be a tree of life.
You redeem me from destruction you crown me with loving kindness and tender mercies. (v4)
You save me so I can walk above. You make my mind saved and fenced. This is a good place to put on the armour (Eph 6) and meditate the safety the thorn crown brings and makes you a sheepfold. Now we wear a crown of glory.
Who satisfies thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (v5)
The mind is now calmer, I begin to imagine, and I can see the cross and the Christ crucified on the brow of the hill. Jesus is also there waiting to clear the conscience; it is of utmost importance, we must take thoughts captive!
At other times I could use the Lord’s Prayer to calm my mind. The idea is to do introspection with a calm mind seeing the way your mind has worked out of a neutral perspective.
I will now walk through all the rooms with you to show you what to do in each room.
Room number 1: Calvary or The Cross
This room is about dying. 1Cor 15:31, Luke 9:23-24. Rom 8:36. Dying to the sinful nature so the life and life abundantly of John 10:10 may dwell in us.
We wake up below, even if you feel you are at peace, we still have every chance that lower emotions will take the mind today.
We go to the cross with our sins, perhaps you felt a tinge of envy or dwelt on disappointments or judged and so on. We name the sins by name. Were you offended?
I look to the hill in front of me and walk on to Jesus who is waiting there for me by the cross. Jesus helps me to bring to the cross all my shames, sorrow, grieve, weaknesses, distress, pains, afflictions, worries, disappointments, embarrassments, irritations, hurts, the lust of the flesh… (add all yours)
Fear of lack of finances, all other fears and cravings. I come to die! Pride must die.
Fear causes toxic thoughts, which cause death. Our minds must become a tree of life. We become a living sacrifice it is our reasonable service (Rom12:1).
We ask the Lord to bless the wine and bread and then we eat the flesh of Christ and crucify all the above, taking our time so all these hurts and sins can be crucified as they surface one by one, we are dying to self.
When we drink the wine the sea of emotions inside us becomes the Red Sea and Pharaoh and his armies drowns, and we are SAVED from the roaring of the inner sea. We are saved from ignorance and lack of knowledge, the voices and imaginations.
Take your time and experience the drowning of the problems. This is what Jesus does for us, Thank you Lord. You seal me from the below.
When Pharaoh drowned the sun came up, reminding us of what the mind must look like, the mind is the Promised Land. Imagine how the sun rises and the calmness of God fills your whole being.
Two common mistakes
No.1.Feeling bad about yourself and staying at the cross. Always follow Jesus. Yes we die but then we rise as He did and then we go to the Father. This is the truth about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Always remember that rooms have doors.
The doors of the rooms of the heart must be sealed with the blood in the same way the Israelites had to seal the doors of their homes so death do not enter.
Gen 4:7: “…sin lays at the door”.
Ezekiel tells us that the doors of the temple are closed but the water flows from under the threshold.
New inspiration will flow from the rooms of the heart as they develop.
Room number 2: Washing or the Wash basin
Whenever we talk about Jesus as being Lord we are really referring to His Spirit. Who is the Holy Spirit or Christ Spirit? Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father while His Spirit is working in our hearts.
2 Cor 3:17: “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
We go to the washing, Jesus is waiting and He immediately sprinkles our thoughts from an evil conscience, (Heb 10:12) the conscience is the Holy of Holies, the heart, faith and imagination. Other metaphors for the mind or the conscience is; House of God, dwelling, temple also territory. The territory is being cleansed and enlarged. Jesus is healing us and makes us the blood washed, our garments are white and our heads lack no ointment, we receive beauty for ashes, and we rise and shine because our light has come. (Is 60:1) Joy comes in the morning (Ps 30:5), we are in the Promised Land, we walk through the trees of the mind and see how Jesus prunes and removes a toxic thought branch, we experience the breeze (Holy Spirit) in the trees who brings new knowledge so that we can grow and bring forth life—you must imagine and meditate these truths daily and add to your rooms.
In the washing we must become aware of thoughts that cause dark patches in our minds, we take strongholds to the Lord, He is the Gardener, trust Him.
When I look back, I see that old man of sin (2 Thes 2:3) crucified and dead while I am raised in Christ.
We also meditate the armour of Ephesians 6. Because our sins have been dealt with we are now the saved—the helmet of salvation, we are the righteousness of God, the truth of God, the peace of God, we are the Word of God and the faith of God. We are new creations.
Room number 3: Praise or the Holy place
Here we do not thank God for what He did for someone else, this is the wrong room.
The Holy place is where we honour the Holy Spirit for teaching us to transform the thoughts, renew the mind and be a living sacrifice. Rom. 12:1-2
Thank you FOR SAVING ME! I am a new creation, thanks for allowing me to experience this mountain of Zion, thank you for teaching me your Word, thank you for Jesus, and the cross. Because of the cross I can walk on the sea with Jesus, I am now in Christ, and Christ in me, I have died and are raised in Christ.
Sing a song of praise to God, it cools the mind and the imagination as we thank God for His goodness and mercies, we worship Him, and become very cool. God spoke to Adam in the cool of the day, we are going to keep our cool all day because of the cross and blood. We are sealed with the blood of Jesus, where a king wears a crown, the mind is blood sealed, and we rule over emotions as a good king would, we deal with rebellion of emotions immediately. Thanks Father! Our territories are being enlarged daily; we have better memory and have greater selfcontrol and our peace increases daily as we grow into a better understanding of God in us.
Room number 4: Holy of Holies
We are entering the Holy of Holies.
When we go to our Father in heaven we do as the elders did and cast down our crown. This crown is mentioned in Rev 4:10 as the elders cast their crowns before God saying: “Holy Holy is God!” The crown is also mentioned in Rev 12 where it has twelve stars which are the twelve areas of our lives that need enlightenment. Our minds are like the present physical night sky. Mysterious and infinitely large. We need to be recreated in our minds.
Imagine all God’s throne inside your centre, we are in the Garden. Imagine the throne as Ezekiel 1 and Revelation describes it. Jesus came to take us to the Father. God the Father, God the Son on our centre with waters flowing out of the throne breaking into four heads. (four gospels, four beasts) Surrounded by the seven Spirits.
Isaiah 11:2: “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;”
All these are now at our disposal for the conscience is clear.
Is 33:21: “The glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams.”
Surrounding these are the thousands of angels and behind these the spirits of just men made perfect (Heb 12:22). You can visualize the garden painting, God is in you, and you are standing in His river. Rest a while and sit in the throne with the Father, the Son and all of heaven; we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. (Eph 2:6) We have died in Christ and are now risen in Christ. We have overcome. (Rev 3:21)
We have a Christ mind, ONLY when we have this Christ mind, can all the promises be ours.
Begin to imagine the river flowing into your future dreams. I see that I am completely filled with the Spirit of God, I see the entire house filled with the Spirit, and there is no darkness in me. Our Creator is the light who created us. To be in the light is to
be enlightened in every part of our being.
We ask the Father to show us His will for our lives as we enter the other rooms by His Spirit.
Room number 5 : Security room
Whenever entering a room always make sure that you are not entering with any part of yourself. I do not want to pray to God with any part of my sinful nature. Be sure that it is not your will intellect, feelings and emotions that are praying here.
Be sure that you are in Christ and not in self.
When I enter these vast rooms I see a coffin in the shape of a cross laying there on the floor. When I look inside I see the man of sin laying there. I ask the Holy Spirit to sprinkle me with the blood. I have the confidence that I am in Christ. I then enthrone the Father Son and Holy Spirit as I see one of the walls of that room change into the throne room. I go to stand upon the Holy stones and pray on whatever the subject of that room is.
In the past we prayed all over the place and hoped our prayers were heard.
We spoke the promises of God confidently yet the Spirit wanted more from us. He wants the gospel to happen inside us. The understanding of what happened at the cross so the flesh can be dealt with daily. In this way the Holy Spirit increases within us as we are gradually filled with the Christ Spirit. Jesus has risen, He is at the right hand of the Father but His Spirit wants to fulfil us completely. You see the Christ must come within us so we can be led by the small voice daily. He is causing the trails in our lives so we can see which part of ourselves has to become a living sacrifice so that our thoughts can be transformed into the Christ mind. The coming of Christ is not a one day far in the future event.
In the security room I confidently pray on the matter of security. I see that the heavens move on my behalf because all of heaven is there, hearing my prayer. When I walk away from the throne and seal the door of that room with the blood of Jesus I see a cross appear over that door and I am aware that power is increasing in this part of my brain as I see that water begin to flow from under the threshold.
Sealing the doors is important so the enemy cannot go back. Also if you don’t have time for the rooms the rest of the week you do not have to worry for the doors are sealed.
Room no 6 – Finances
Entering this room as shown before be sure that you are free of worry. Worry is fear and belongs in the cross. Fear is one of the seven deadly sins. If we pray our last prayers at night before we go to sleep with just the slightest bit of worry—there is no power. It means that the same throne of the heart we have given to God now belong to worry.
Mat 26:41: “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
The temptation to be in the flesh, to worry or be angry or judge others for instance.
Learn to be aware of what has happened in the thoughts. In this way we learn what our weaknesses are. Because we don’t want to go to the cross with the same sins over and over we ask the Holy Spirit to show us how irritations started and what our weaknesses are so we can walk away from those situations. Not be tempted to answer anything without thinking.
When it comes to finances its best to start with a clean slate. I asked God to take all my previous understanding away from me concerning money. He made money for His purpose, everything belongs to Him. All I have to do to make sure that this heavenly knowledge comes to me is to guard my heart. God will open and shut doors. If He should choose to take your job away when you have prayed this way, be sure He is opening new horizons. Be careful what you pray for.
Imagine you are standing in the great river or next to it as Revelation says; begin to discuss with Father the state of your finances. In this room, all will be revealed to you; past mistakes and the way we work with money. Begin to meticulously state all financial possibilities and wait for revelation and wisdom, take your time and let the waters wash over your mind as you wait for the voice that sounds like many waters. Here I start seeing my tithes, donations, new sculptures and paintings, everything that generates money in my life. Here heavenly ideas will flow into us; we can expect ideas that have never been seen on earth to be revealed as we get holy inspiration. I am opening myself for ideas the earth has never seen and wait expectantly.
My conscience is clear; I have the power of a holy conscience. Let thy Kingdom come let thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Remember to seal the door.
Room number 7: Relationships
In this room all of heaven is still present, look carefully and you will see the people you must pray for and you will experience guidance as to how to pray. Perhaps you also have a list of dear ones, but the idea of interceding functions in this room as you perform the task of a priest and seal, pray and intercede for every person you think of. Some might be sick and you can bring them to the river along with the hurt, pain, broken heartedness and captives and so on. Here we also thank God for others and what He has done for them. List your names here…
We don’t see the problems. We do not look at the peoples shortcomings who we pray for, we look at them through the eyes of Jesus. We see them already healed, bound up and happy. The rooms are not to be used for complaining or moaning. We are in Christ, the problems were left at the cross. We walk in authority and walk and talk like Jesus.
Remember to seal the door when you leave.
Room Number 8: Tasks
This is where we bring the day which lies ahead while mentioning all the possibilities of the day before the Lord- we imagine; Safety, laughter, peace, joy, right weather, how we will keep our cool all day, going through the familiar motions of the day, planning, knowing what to say in every situation and to always talk softly, we have wisdom, counsel, and recognize emotional manipulation and emotional rape at a glance. All of heaven is involved everywhere we go, angels go before us as we get the parking and have the wisdom and humour for all circumstances. We know that nothing is going to upset us, as we visualize being at the right place at the right time, also taking careful note of the kind of thoughts we are having. If we have not cleansed the mind completely at the cross this morning, the day will still be full of yesterday. This means we have to take the cross much more seriously. Surrounding us is a wall of peace that makes space for us wherever we go; we are self controlled! People recognize the presence of heaven in us.
We bless each other, speak calmly and experience full protection from the accuser, treachery, judgment, gossip, theft and accidents. Supernaturally we experience that we are always led to the right people at the right time and circumstances are always in our favour, we have self control and discipline. God’s will is accomplished in our life.
Room number 9: Language
Col 4:6: “Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.” (Message)
Col 4:6: “Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned (as it were) with salt, (so that you may never be at a loss) to know how you ought to answer anyone (who puts a question to you).” (Amplified)
Heaven is alighting on my speech like a dove; my speech is sharp, fresh and full of council wisdom and creative language.
Ps 103:5: “You fill my mouth with good things”
I speak a heavenly language full of Word, humour, eloquence, fluency and effectiveness. Keep adding your own… purity, antiseptic, and sparkling like the Book of Proverbs, playful wit, a bright repartee…
Languages come from God. We are told not to worry about what we will say to people because the Holy Spirit will do the talking.
There are times that I struggle to find the right words. It seems as if I am stumbling over my own tongue. This is when I see how God meets me and opens that one twelfth channel in my brain where speech comes from in this room. I can stand and speak to large crowds and be in the river where language comes from.
Make sure you seal the door.
Room number 10: Kitchen or the Health Room
This is where we bring the sick for healing.
Once we are sure that we are no longer hampered by the sinful nature we are free in Christ to pray the prayer of faith. Pray over your own body, command illness to go. Then we need wisdom to know what caused the illness. Am I tired, is it my eating habits. Find the cause and be disciplined.
My youth is restored like the eagles.
We need the heavenly wisdom in our eating habits, and greater discipline to stay healthy and do our part so the body can heal itself. We bless the water we drink and the food we eat and know we have to avoid fatty foods. The food in restaurants is normally unhealthy and we need guidance and wisdom. As you wait here still sitting in the river, ask the Lord for revelation on your personal diet and discipline; you will receive instruction, perhaps through books, dreams or other people. Good things will come to you.
This is also the healing room. I know some people who never get their healing. Perhaps it is because they never close the door.
This is of course where we bring the sick for healing.
Room number 11: Bedroom
The house has a bedroom and even here the river of God is flowing. All those intimate details should be open to the Lord as we pray our final prayers to our Father who is in heaven as we go to sleep in the quiet rivers. Here we also wakeup and your first morning thoughts will make it clear what is going on in the mind. Here we should wake up with: “Bless the Lord all my soul”. If we wake up with worries it will show the state of the mind that must be crucified. We already begin to take authority and cast down imaginations. F.B. Meyer says that married couples should obey the words of Deuteronomy 24:5 that he may cheer up the wife that he has taken. It is of great consequence that love be kept up between husband and wife, and they continually agree, and that everything be very carefully avoided which might make them strangers.
Room Number 12: Information and Filing
This is where we file all the new knowledge of the Word we have received by spending time with God on His throne. Here we meditate the Word and file new knowledge under divisions, making sure all new knowledge has been dissected by the two edged Sword of the Spirit.
No new revelation will come if the previous knowledge has not been filed and dissected and meditated properly, even if new information comes we will not recognize it as new, for the old has not been processed.
This is the office and needs to be especially tidy; papers lying around in an office is a sign of an untidy mind. God is a God of order and expects us to have orderly minds. When we see the state of a person’s home, we know what his mind looks like.
The orderly arrangement of the mind is a Godly principle and we must learn to copy God’s character and live tidy lives. This will lead to a soft and pure conscience where God can rest inside us, with His presence in us we are now the blessed of God. To keep a diary of your new revelation and knowledge is a good idea, by doing this you can always refer back and find out if you can still remember it, for it was given as a stepping-stone to understanding the following knowledge.
During the recent drought the level of our borehole was dropping. I found myself worrying about this in which case there is no power in my prayers. I then got the idea to make a Water room. This worked so well that the power of my prayer life increased. I am saying that rooms can be subject to change.
Perhaps you may need an Authority room. If you are a farmer you will need a Weather room.
The reason why Christians have to die to self is because in ourselves we have no authority, for this reason we die daily to the flesh and rise in Christ as a new creation having laid down our “life”. We rise in Christ as in Isaiah 60. Arise and shine thy light has come the glory of the Lord has risen upon thee. We are no longer sinners but saved and blood washed, free and the righteousness of God in Christ to take authority in the earth and say how things will be in our lives. The reason why many Christians are powerless and always want others to pray for them is because they do not understand this work of the cross.
Many want to cry when they are in the Lord’s presence which means they feel guilty, unsaved, unhappy, unfulfilled and perhaps unorganized. I personally know many Christians who do not understand their rights as God’s sons and being kings in the Kingdom of God. Crying is not one of the fruits of the Spirit. In this room we talk to the problem as in Mark 11:23; we name the problems and speak to them in authority. We prophesy over them and see the problems resolved, removed as Ezekiel prophesied over the dead bones. We speak life into dead works caused by the state of our conscience. In this room, victories are seen and achieved in the Spirit as we call things which are not as though they are, and speak and call these things in the presence of all of heaven. This is the twelfth room and our minds are organised as we know what we need to pray, and speak out boldly.
Isa 54:17: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”
As Joshua, we do not fear for the Lord our God is with us. (Josh 1:9)
2 Cor 10:4: “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
Firstly there might be strongholds of fear or pride that must be dealt with in our own minds, and then we have words that are spoken against us in judgment, curses and spiritual wickedness that must be cast down and out of high places. There are other religions who use soul power against Christians to gain world domination. They are taking charge of world finances and want to enslave Christians by making them emotional. We stand in righteousness against spiritual wickedness in high places in every walk of life under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We stand against witch doctors, spells, curses, negative words and imaginations. Some institutions keep people in darkness for the sole reason of projecting their personal spirits to manipulate them with fear. We pray for these people by casting down this wickedness and sealing them with the blood, so that the light of God can penetrate the previous dark mind and bring life into their hearts. In this way we are praying constructively and are not sitting in judgment. Some are waiting for God to take authority, and I have tried this, it does not work. Christ is in us, this is the hope of glory, and the day of the Lord is here. It is not theologies or doctrines that will make these personal, God given dreams come true. Things happen in the spiritual realm because we say it, and look at it permanently with praise and thanksgiving for it is to the glory of God. I have lived by faith for 35 years and nothing happens if you are waiting for God to do it. God will not let you win the lotto, or let the ship come in. One person looked at the way we work for a living, shook his head and said: there must be an easier way!” I believe in heaven and angels but they did not put one stone on top of another where I built. In actual fact if I did not guard over the stones they would disappear but when the building was finished, the glory belonged to God. People who walk out in faith in a blood washed conscience are the bringers of testimonies.
Rev 12:11: “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved no their lives unto the death.”
The blood provides not only atonement but also the sealed condition in which we receive revelation and inspiration to know what God’s will is for us to do, and then we do it with all our might. We can see by the way people walk and talk whether they are Spirit led and inspired. Whether you can see the future and that of the country, and if you are getting up at night to take authority over the dark voices that say; “You will never make it!” We do not want to achieve empty materialism but only that which the Spirit opens the door to do, and when we look back in life, we will see how His amazing plans built the impossible puzzle. That truly brings God glory. We are looking for the Godly people who are willing to stand up and say with authority that the impossible situation will disappear in God’s name. We rise to the challenges. Life would be boring without them and each mountain we climb makes us stronger. I can never stress the fatality of sitting at the cross too much. It sounds holy to dig around inside yourself but the devil will walk over you, for we are powerless if not rising in Christ to have authority in the earth.
I personally take thoughts captive towards the evening then I know how it will be at the cross tomorrow morning. The Holy Spirit is a gentleman and if there are strongholds to be dealt with He will keep it at the top of the list in your mind. If the time is right for sanctification of this area in our mind, you will think about it, then deal with what is on your mind, crucify it and go to the washing. It is more important to deal with these strongholds that to mourn about the past. Some who are reading this book might be severely ill, or poverty stricken, later we will be looking at this. Illnesses and all problems are caused by the way we think and it is these thought patterns that must be dealt with by Jesus, The Gardener. Where we used to think death we now have to work on the renewal of the mind – in Christ! We need to be saved from the flood of old thoughts as Noah was saved from the flood in a sealed condition.
Mat 24:37: “As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.” (Amp)
When all the mind has been dealt with and every dark nook and cranny has been aired and brought into the light of the gospel, the mind becomes the Christ mind, and looks like the morning sun. Why, for what reason is all this necessary? So we can take authority in the earth, for the earth is waiting for the sons of God to be revealed. Where is the victory in waiting for one day? Take authority over your situation, it does not matter how much you know if you’ll only implement what you know. Every bad thing that happened to me as a Christian was in times I was passive, and tired. But the moment I put my foot down and claimed the promises, the situation turned for the better and there was a testimony. The work of the cross made it possible that we can talk to the future in a saved condition above the flesh and take the Promised Land into possession. We can make a decree in the spiritual realm and God will shine a light and show us how to get there. (Job 22:28)
And example of the authority we have in Christ is an elderly gentleman who came to the cave with arthritis in the knees. After applying these principles, he spoke to the knees and he was healed. My question is who spoke to the knees? The man did, but really it is God- in the man.
Col 1:27: “…what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
1 Cor 2:16: “…but we have the mind of Christ.”
Php 2:5: “Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…”
(Rom 12:2) John 10:34: “Jesus answered, is it not written in your Law, I said, You are gods?”
Ps 82:6: “I said, Ye are gods, And all of you sons of the Most High.”
Very few have the boldness to speak God’s Word in the face of apparent defeat, they always want someone else to do it.
Heb 10:22: “…let us draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience; and having our body washed with pure water.”
John G. Lake was a man of enormous faith, he would dress well and stand in front of the mirror, pointing to his reflection he would say: “Inside that man lives God.”
Our people are standing around in groups discussing the price of fuel, the government, rape, murder and the state of the roads. It is understandable; they are worried about their children. But can you see the damage done to the conscience? How powerless we have become because we are in the flesh and not in the Spirit. Let every person rise, hold fast to the cross, and obtain the blood washed conscience for we have to take the Promised Land into possession and slay the giants of the flesh, in Christ.
Bible history teaches us that when the people turned away from God and worshiped other gods, God would turn His face away and they would lose their land.
But we say: We do not worship other gods!
Yes we do! We worship gods of rage, fear and pride because they are ruling on our thrones.
God will protect us, but there is the serious business of the conscience, for we have become fleshly. Romans 8:1 makes some interesting reading. The NIV, GW, ASV and the Message read as following:
Rom 8:1: “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
But this verse is not finished! The King James finishes these famous words with: “There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, But for those who are after the Spirit and not the FLESH.”
This means we are condemned for we are fleshly or emotional.
That tune we wake up with in the morning is the music in the house. Perhaps you may need a Music room.
Some days we get only as far as the cross, we humans have many ideas and wants, and as we pray for things we do not receive, our frustrations mount. We have heard how Abraham had to wait a hundred years for the fulfilling of his dream of having a son. Sometimes we will wrestle with God as Jacob did and try to force our will because of mounting frustrations. Why can those people have it, and not I?
These days will come and then we have to go to Gethsemane as Jesus did and pray: “Father take this cup away from me, never the less, let thy will be done”
Then we go to the cross, take up our cross as Jesus did and die to self. Those frustrations have to be crucified, those persisting worries and those things we seem to pray about forever, and get no answer. The Fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22) includes longsuffering and patients. If our lives are not bringing forth the Fruit of the Spirit the beast is still on the sea. Self is still firmly entrenched in the seat of the heart.
In Christ, we overcome and go to the washing as joy comes in the morning.
