And so you say...

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, September 29, 2010,
So many Christians are going through so many different trials at this time that it actually alarms me to hear about all the suffering, hardships and pain. As I write this, I can confirm that we to have had our fair share and can tell many different stories. However, when you listen to the person next to you, your problem does not seem that big a deal. We are praying for friends all over the world, people who are suffering from sickness and disease and others who are going through financially ...

Restoration.

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, September 26, 2010,
Precious metals are refined by the searing heat of the furnace. Cleansing of filthy fabric requires the use of caustic soap. God often uses the fire of difficult times to ready us for his restoring work. He uses suffering to lead us to the first step in recovery - a recognition that we are powerless. If we recognize this fact and turn to God for help, he will deliver us from destruction and encourage us as we walk the upward path of recovery.

I have often taught this fact and although it somet...

Stop and listen.

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, September 26, 2010,
Stop looking at your faults, your mistakes and errors and look to Jesus! I found in the past, every time I wanted an answer from the Lord for something that I needed, I would look at my faults and "repent" first, thinking that if I did this, it would qualify my request before the Lord. But my friend, I have learnt that it never worked because I was hoping that my effort would be the key that would release God's favor toward me. Thank God He would look beyond my faults and saw the finished wor...

Do you have the answers

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Saturday, September 25, 2010,
I get many requests from people all over the world asking for help. It is stressful times for many of us right now and sometimes I feel so helpless because I do not have all the answers. People have so many things they are going through that it actually saddens me when I see the hurt, the pain and the suffering. In fact, just when I think I have heard it all, someone else comes along with another story that makes you wonder what is actually going on.

In my own life, I experience so many challe...

Vision of THE DAMAGED SHEEP

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Friday, September 24, 2010,
 
The Lord gave me a vision of His sheep fold (the church) over 25 years ago. Jesus and I were standing on a hill looking out over a multitude of sheep, as far my eyes could see were sheep. The sheep at first looked so white and sparkling clean and strong and healthy.
 
I looked back at Jesus and He was bidding me to look again on the sheep. This time the sheep were dirty, skinny, weak with insects in their eyes, ears, and nose. The Lord said, “the first is how many of my ministers see My ...

Christ in me the hope of glory!

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, September 22, 2010,
What an awesome God we serve! 

"I want you to know that it is in deed my desire that you surrender to me unconditionally, for I desire to manifest My glory, not only to you, but also through you. I will draw men to Myself and if you will lay your life down, I will show Myself to be true and faithful to My word. I desire that you do not look at your circumstances, but that you would set aside every detail that is not of me and allow My Spirit to saturate you with My will.

Look I am doing a new t...

Faith comes by hearing

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Saturday, September 18, 2010,
Today, Jesus is calling you to salvation! This gift of salvation is free to all mankind and as God is not a respecter of persons, anyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, will be saved. The Bible tells us that "God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life". (John 3:16)

I am so grateful that even when I was still a sinner, Jesus came and died for me, and he paid a ransom for my life and to...

Do we truly understand worship

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Monday, September 13, 2010,

I have posted a number of teachings on the subject of worship, because it is something very dear to my heart. I truly believe that as the church of Jesus Christ, we have to come back to the place of true worship if we want to see His glory manifest over all the Earth. The kind of worship I am talking about is the ultimate expression of our love and is directed towards the King, which causes us to surrender unconditionally to His authority in our lives.

 

Worship is an act of devotion directed t...

In the presence of the King

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Saturday, September 11, 2010,
This morning, I stand before the King and am in awe of His glory. There is something about the presence of Jesus that captured my heart many years ago. And the best thing of all, the longer I remain, the stronger it becomes. The emotions one feels in His place, compels you to worship Him. I do not think that any one person can actually describe the feeling they enjoy when sitting at the Masters feet, but, this one thing I know, I do not want to leave this place.

I gave my life to the Lord at a...

God's timeline

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, September 8, 2010,
A friend of mine made a statement, which I felt was so awesome and there and then we prayed this over our lives. "Lord elevate us so that we might see your timeline"... As I walk in the office of prophet it remains my desire to see God's plan unfold and to be doing exactly what He desires I be doing. God showed His servants many things in the past that has manifest in our time and even to this day, we continue to press in to the inner chamber of His holiness, so that we might know His heart b...

Worship is all we do...

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, September 5, 2010,

When we who have been called can understand that we have a High Priest who washed us with His Blood, who became a sacrifice, once and for all to redeem us from sin and death, we cannot help but bow our hearts in worship of Him. This is the least we can do. When we realize and understand that we are made righteous in His sight, we would be compelled by our inner conviction to surrender our hearts unconditionally and (worship) live our lives in such a way that everything we are honors Him (Life...

Point people in the right direction

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Friday, September 3, 2010,

As the church is locked into a time that we cannot control, many Christians, just like the world, is being subjected to all sorts of problems, and whether these are on a physical, mental or financial level, the stress in the home and or the workplace drives people to react in different ways. However, we need to know as long as we are part of this age, these things will happen simply because it is called "Life". I can testify to this fact in the same way as those of you who are reading this ri...

In pursuit of the King

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Thursday, September 2, 2010,

Stop pursuing things and start to pursue Him. God sees your relationship with Him as the only thing that you need for every success in your life.


  Religion causes man to become focused on everything that does not matter, however a Relationship with Christ causes man to worship Him, because this is all that really matters!
