A WORD FOR THE CHURCH IN NEW ZEALAND
by Ian Johnson
It's 8 years ago today since Todd Bently was in Auckland town hall...shortly after that some leaders started dismantling the momentum for renewal that was happening in New Zealand it was a vicious, time of attack against God's glory. The hard part was that it came from within.
Then yesterday I had a dream which is 8 years later ( New beginnings) Today marks new beginnings.... here is the dream...
In a dream last night I saw a fire burn away a lot of scrappy foliage from the edge of a small lake I had known as a child. The pond was always dirty because it had the waste water from the cowshed flowing into it. After the fire it was discovered that a new (but ancient) spring had started flowing into the lake and the water had become crystal clear.. so clear that it attracted the interest of some from above who came down to see, After they tested the waters they found that they had amazing mineral property and we're now pure.
The pond in the dream is located in Maioro which interpreted means "fortification of land". (in other words a stronghold) -
The interpretation of the dream is: Something major that has been a barrier and a stronghold has been destroyed and changed by fire.. that which has been bitter waters has become sweet and sustaining - that which was polluted has become pure and sought after by many because of its purity. The water is ready for release and has been judged ready by heaven.
The power of this word is this: The pond which was made murky and caused all sorts of weeds to grow around it has been purified by fire..it has been assessed by heaven (from above) and deemed ready for release again into the Sons of man.
Those that stood against the move or discredited it deliberately have, sad to say, paid a price for doing so..their churches and ministries are closed down or gone..this must serve as a reminder not to touch the glory. I pleaded (in tears) with some of these folk not to follow the course of action they followed, but to no avail.
Now New Zealand FORWARD into your destiny your time has come again, this time let us March as one.
