The psalmist David captures the wilderness journey of the people of God (YHVH) very profoundly in Psalm 107. The imagery he evokes is indicative of someone who deeply understands the journey through experience.
Before becoming King he had to survive the wilderness. He endured many days on the run from Saul. At times he dwelt in caves or the desert. He was anointed to be King. Saul, the reigning King, was rejected by God because of pride, stubbornness and disobedience. Yet God allowed him to continue living for many, many years while he pursued David to take his life.
As crazy as it seems, this was part of the preparation process to make David a great King. Why didn’t God just keep him in the palace? Isn’t that what is normally done to prepare a monarch? To prove His greatness, God does not do things how we would. He will expose you to where you are going (in David’s case the palace). Then he uses the University of the Wilderness to prepare us for where we are going.
In a previous article on May 5, 2015 I addressed the issue of the Prophet as God’s executioner. In this article I will examine how the prophetic has harmed some believers.
We serve a Living God. He desires to speak directly with ALL His children. Jesus Christ suffered and died to grant us legal access to the presence of God. The Holy Spirit was given to aid in the communication process; allowing us to fellowship with our Creator, once again.
Today a friend will be burying her mother. This is the second funeral I have not been able to attend in less than a month. My grandmother used to quip that ‘death comes in threes’. I do hope that there will not be another one soon.
These deaths have caused me to reflect very deeply on my experience during the time of my grandmother’s burial.

Many Saints are earnestly requesting that I send the anointing, during their worship. They have forgotten that it is already in them. The gift was there. It was merely activated by the laying on of hands or the prophetic word. They need to learn to stir up what is already inside them. Just as Paul told Timothy. It is only then that they will start to grow spiritually. They must stop sitting like passengers in a car. Bound for a destination that only the passenger knows but fails to speak to the driver. The driver is the Holy Spirit. He is aware of all routes that can and must be taken to reach the final destination. However, He requires that you participate in the process.
This vision was given to me on Friday, December 16, 2011 between 4 am to 6am. The witness of the vision came between 7:30 am to 8:20am.
I dreamt I had gone to work but knew there would be a conflict with the Managing Director. So I decided to enquire about her whereabouts; before deciding which entrance to take into my office. I avoided the main entrance and headed to another entrance where I could speak with the secretary.
The secretary was seated behind a huge panel desk. She was busy speaking into a headpiece and entering data into a computer. As I approached her, the Managing Director came into view.
