Rugby - Tunnel and cloud

< 7th March 2007 | Index | 17th April 2007 >

It's been about nine months since we last wrote notes on a meeting. Somehow it hasn't seemed important although we've been meeting regularly throughout and there have been some great and useful times.

Tonight there were just two of us, or three if we count the Messiah (and of course we should count him!)

Chris shared the address of a website that had been mentioned to him in an email from the USA. It's the Christian Fellowship Network based in Merseyside with the purpose of helping to link individual and independent groups together. It's striking that the site is a personal effort and does not represent any organisation.

Chris went on to share a vision of a tunnel mouth in the side of a hill. There was a plaque above the opening, though the words on the plaque were not readable. Rachael thought it might be like the Ben Cruachan tunnel, cut into a mountainside in Scotland to give access to the generating plant in a hydroelectric scheme. The centre of the mountain is a place of power, stored power, and the tunnel gives access to this place of power.

Rachael saw a pear tree with a piece of fruit hanging from it, almost ready to pick. The Lord said, 'This fruit is not going to wither or fall, when it's ready it's going to be used to nourish my people'. She also saw a carpet of cloud like a walkway. And Father spoke and said, 'Don't be afraid to walk on the clouds. You might expect to fall through, but don't be afraid because I will hold you up there'. He also said, 'Nobody can stop me having my way. This is the path I'm giving you, walk with me. Neither can anybody slow me down, my will is the most powerful thing. I choose the moment.

At the end of the meeting Chris said, 'Something's brewing, isn't it. And it's not a pot of tea.' This seemed at the same time quite significant but also very amusing! Access is being provided to the very place of power, perhaps by a tunnel into the heart of the mountain, or perhaps on the clouds where we will need his support along the way. But it's just different ways of looking at the same revelation. We have free access to the throneroom, and it's a great privilege.

Eaton Ford - Orange and sun

< 29th January 2007 | Index | 12th March 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

Jody described a vision of some women holding up an orange. When she looked more closely she realised that the 'orange' was in fact the sun!

But we don't need to do that, we are not called to do the impossible, everything we are called to do is achievable. We can do all things in Christ.

Eaton Ford - The right amount

< 22nd January 2007 | Index | 7th March 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

Rachael read Proverbs 27:7 and commented that Father gives us just the right amount as we need it. Val reminded us that when a believer is full of the real good things, there is actually no room for the worldly things.

Rugby - Straight and narrow

< 17th January 2007 | Index | 29th January 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

During the meeting we chatted over coffee for a while, and then we looked at the passage of Isaiah Rachael and I had prepared (Isaiah 40:3-5). We read it through together and I shared what I had thought. Rachael said that she saw a relation between 'making the way straight' and the explosions all in a straight line that she'd seen in a dream.

We agreed that our role in the world is to proclaim the Kingdom of Heaven, to declare Christ to the world, to live lives that reveal his glory.

Eaton Ford - Table and TV

< 27th September 2006 | Index | 22nd January 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

A 1950s TV setSometimes it's necessary in our lives to clear the decks. Rachael shared a picture of a table with everything swept off, all the clutter of tablecloth and crumbs and used plates was removed in a single action. This reminded us of John the Baptist's cry in the wilderness, to 'make straight the way'. Although the world's in such a mess at the moment, it will be made good. This is the Lord's responsibility; he will do it.

Rachael also thought that being in the world is rather like watching television in black and white. When we see the full colour of the heavenly reality it will be utterly fantastic!

Another way to post a blog (SQ)

This post is my first attempt to blog using 'blogmailr', a website provided by telligent, those terribly nice guys who wrote Community Server.

It's really very clever, but like many of the best ideas it's also very, very simple. You sign up on the website, then you provide one or more e-mail addresses that you want to use to create blog posts, provide URLs and login details for any blogs you want to post to, and blogmailr provides an e-mail address for each blog. You write a mail message and sent it to the provided e-mail address and voila! - Job done.

Well we'll see, won't we. I've just typed this into my e-mail client, addressed it using the e-mail address provided by blogmailr, and now I'm going to hit the send button...
