A few days ago I had a dream about a broken relationship that had been healed and restored. In the dream I was in a powerful church service with a spirit-filled, empowered preacher who was preaching such deep and profound revelation of the simple gospel. The presence of the Holy Spirit was so thick and awe-inspiring and there was so much depth and supernatural wisdom to what he was preaching and at the end he summarised it by saying “All this is to show you the lengths to which God will go for you because of His love for you.” I then heard Jesus’ voice booming so loudly within this church service “RECONCILIATION! RECONCILIATION! RECONCILIATION!” It was so powerful within the dream that I could feel the weight of the glory in my physical body even as I slept!
All at once I was transported to this friends church – a very different church than I would usually attend. I found the sermon very dry and lifeless, lacking power and revelation of the Holy Spirit, but mostly lacking love and grace. It was a huge contrast to the church I had just been in, and I wasn’t looking forward to sitting through the entire sermon because there was a righteous frustration burning inside of me knowing that there was so much more to the Kingdom and the Bride. I could see and feel God trying to break in but the people in the congregation around me weren’t responding to Him – in fact, they couldn’t even see or recognise him. Yet within this context a mighty move of God took place that began to break down the walls of ‘religion’ built up around them, stopping them from permeating the world around them with the power, love, goodness and glory of Jesus. As I was in this church service with these friends the elders began handing out communion. Row by row we took communion together. This was where the power of reconciliation, restoration of relationships and healing began. As the elders went to collect the little communion cups afterwards I reached down to pick mine up to put into the basket, but as I did, my friend also reached out and our hands touched. We didn’t have to say anything but looked purely and humbly into one another eyes and we knew that all had been healed, renewed and restored. I then realised that the sermon was finished – so quickly and so soon. I remember thinking “That wasn’t painful to sit through at all, that was over really fast – God accelerated the process!”
I was then suddenly in a shoe shop in Paris and I was buying so many pairs of beautiful shoes. My friend was also there with me and I turned to her and said “Healing is our responsibility. We are responsible to seek healing. If we hold on to hurt and pain, we only delay our deliverance and freedom. Jesus wants to heal you, and he will, but you have to hand your heart and your hurt over to him.”
As soon as I woke up from the dream I had to go feed my baby daughter. We have worship music playing constantly in our house, even quietly at night while we sleep. As I sat in the nursing chair to start feeding her a song came on and during the spontaneous worship the worship leader started singing prophetically over and over “I see it raining honey, honey from heaven, raining down, dripping on your head and pouring into your heart – healing honey of heaven.”
As I sat down to process this dream with God I began asking him what he was saying in all this. I believe great healing is coming to many within the Church. Heart healing that leads to a wholeness like never before, all because God is requiring maturity and unity amongst his people for the great time ahead. Unity between denominations, unity between broken relationships, unity between brothers and sisters in Christ, unity between any fraction whatsoever that is dividing his kingdom. For too long the church has been known by the world for its DIS-unity, but a time is upon us where God is overturning this because of his great love and not only will we learn to love maturely, but we will be KNOWN for our love, KNOWN for our unity and through this, GOD WILL BE KNOWN FOR HIS LOVE!
The Lord showed me that the communion in the dream simbolised the fellowship, reconciliation, peace, grace, forgiveness that is coming to his Church, between his children. It shows that we will be bound together in unity by the blood of the cross. He is accelerating painful processes by his grace – what we expect to be traumatic and difficult to deal with will actually be over in an instant and we will be delivered, set free and restored with a supernatural swiftness. He is also accelerating the lifeless, powerless, loveless parts of his church that have been bound by law into an abundance of love, grace and power. Paris represents the city of love and as he reconciles old hurts and pains of the past we will walk together in love and out into the world with the shoes that bring the gospel of peace!
I asked the Lord what he meant when I said to my friend in the dream about healing being our responsibility. I immediately saw a vast, dry, barren land, so desolate, empty, lifeless and fruitless. I knew this was the hearts of many who have been holding onto hurt. As I kept looking I could see cracks in the ground – the earth/hearts were so hardened and hadn’t been refreshed with living water for so long that they had split apart like rocks. But suddenly I saw fresh vegetation starting to sprout forth through the cracks. As the greenery grew, little blossoms of flowers started bursting forth. I knew this was restoration of hearts and healing of hearts as God’s people opened up to his Spirit’s leading and refreshing. I then heard his whisper:
“Healing is pouring forth – dry, desolate, hardened hearts are cracking open and as the soul-quenching water of my Spirit fills the cracks, healing is coming. Healing is bursting forth like blossoming blooms in the dry, hard desert. Healing is coming to the desolate places of the heart, because my Spirit is being invited in. Wholeness is coming to hearts in this time because hurt, pain, bitterness and unforgiveness is being illuminated, pressed upon, revealed and healed by me.
Healing is coming to the desolate places of the heart, because my Spirit is being invited in
Many in this moment are letting go of hurt & pain that they have been so tightly holding onto for so long – years and even decades for some. They are finally letting go because I have been knocking. They have opened the door before but the ugliness and pain of the process to let go was too difficult, too hard, too traumatic to face. But I come in grace. I come in love. I come in the fullness of complete forgiveness and bring a Spirit of reconciliation, restoration, renewal and refreshing to the hearts that have been closed. My people are being made whole through the healing of their hearts that have been hurt. Divine delivery is coming to many, because this is the moment of wholeness, fullness, maturity, restoration and transformation all because of what I have ahead in store for my beautiful Bride.
This is the moment of wholeness, fullness, maturity, restoration and transformation all because of what I have a head in store for my beautiful Bride
I need a Bride who is equipped and empowered to release my love and goodness to the world. My children can no longer hold on to hurt, because it is only holding them back. Holding them back from healing, holding them back from truth, holding them back from freedom, and holding them back from wholeness and maturity. It is time. It is time to let go, and to love. Receive my love and you will see through my eyes and you will overflow with my love.
I am leading my people into holiness and purity, wholeness and maturity
I am leading my people into holiness and purity, wholeness and maturity. Holding onto the past will only hinder what I have ahead for you in the future. Don’t hold back any longer, but let go of past pain, let go of unforgiveness, let go of hurt, let go of the words that are recited over and over on repeat in your mind. Freedom is coming to minds and hearts – no more anxiety, no more doubt, no more confusion or questioning, no more stress, no more restless, sleepless nights or tired and weary souls. Let go of the burdens, lay them at my feet, I am the Great Healer and I will set you free.
Holding onto the past will only hinder what I have ahead for you in the future
Truth will come as my children release the tight grasp they have on their hurts. Truth will flood into open wounds – MY truth will heal and set free. Seek my truth, ask me for my truth, ask for my eyes to see from my perspective. I will show you my truth. I will show you the love and grace in the situation you keep stewing over. I will point out my plan and my purposes. I will realign your feet to my path. I will direct you back into my direction – on towards your destiny I have designed for you.
I will use you, I will use the brokenness and pain. Your struggle will be your story and not only will you be healed but you will carry an impartation of revelation in my healing power that you will use to help others heal into wholeness also. Forgiveness is key. Relationships will be restored, for my glory.
I need my Bride unified. I need a Bride who is equipped and empowered to release my love and goodness to the world
I need my Bride unified and your love for one another will be my mark on you for the world to see. The world needs to see a church unified in love. Not agreement, just love. Not tolerance, but real, genuine love. To love like me. This is the mark of the mature – to love unconditionally.”

“I will open rivers on the barren heights And springs in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a reed-pool of water And the dry land springs of water.” ISAIAH 41:18 AMP
“Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear my voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with me. The one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying now to the churches.” Revelation 3:20, 22 TPT
“For if you embrace the truth, it will release true freedom into your lives.” John 8:32 TPT
“For when we pray for the blessing of the communion cup, isn’t this our co-participation with the blood of Jesus? And the bread that we distribute, isn’t this the bread of our co-participation with the body of Christ? For although we’re many, we become one loaf of bread and one body as we feast together on one loaf.” 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 TPT
“I’ve been told many times that when you meet as a congregation, divisions and cliques emerge—and to some extent, this doesn’t surprise me. Differences of opinion are unavoidable, yet they will reveal which ones among you truly have God’s approval.” 1 Corinthians 11:18-19 TPT
“If I were to speak with eloquence in earth’s many languages, and in the heavenly tongues of angels, yet I didn’t express myself with love, my words would be reduced to the hollow sound of nothing more than a clanging cymbal. And if I were to have the gift of prophecy with a profound understanding of God’s hidden secrets, and if I possessed unending supernatural knowledge, and if I had the greatest gift of faith that could move mountains, but have never learned to love, then I am nothing. And if I were to be so generous as to give away everything I owned to feed the poor, and to offer my body to be burned as a martyr, without the pure motive of love, I would gain nothing of value. Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten. Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, 13 TPT
