A Party in Heaven…..

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” – Luke 15:10

I am rejoicing this morning! The Lord is good and worthy to be praised!   Yesterday, my wife went to her church’s cell group’s for people born in June and came home with prophetic words for our two boys and for me.

Before I mention what they were, let me say that before our boys were out of their mother’s womb, we had prayed, prophesied and laid hands on them through her bump and called God’s pupose down upon them. We spoke the prophetic into and over them both and said to God that they belonged to him.  Our second son, Jonathan, especially, has a major call upon his life.  We knew this because Satan kept trying to take him out – even BEFORE he came out of the womb!  There were several times that Lesanne (my wife) nearly tripped and fell, there was one person who was encouraging us to abort him (as he was a surprise to us and we weren’t planning for him!) and even some medical conditions that arose in Lesanne during and after his birth.  We always said that God had to have a special work for him if Satan would be working so hard to stop him from being born!

Our older son Nikao  (means ‘He who overcomes’), who is four years old, loves to make up songs and we got him into learning the violin early, as ours is a musical family – his mother and I and one aunt (her sister) all sing well, and her sister’s husband plays the keyboard at his assembly.  Her uncle plays the organ at an Anglican church as well.   With that being said, the one giving the prophetic word over Nikao didn’t know any of that when he said that Nick would be a prophetic psalmist, who would be able to play several different instruments and would be able to release the presence of God through songs that he plays and writes.   People will be released from bondages when he plays, too!  Our friend said that strongholds would be broken when he plays, and that nothing will stop the songs from being released.  When I heard that both Lesanne and I were excited, to say the least!  WOW!

Our younger son Jonathan is two, and loves to dance.  He also likes to try to boss people around! 😆  Anyway, for him, our friend said that he saw the little boy as a dancer and a preacher, also able to release the prophetic.  Again, our friend doesn’t see when Jonathan dances at every single jingle that comes onto the television. You should hear him singing “How Great is Our God” – he can’t pronounce all the words yet, but he loves it!  Our friend said that Jonathan will be a prophetic worshipper, and that the Glory of the Lord will fill the place when he ministers – like when the Glory filled the Temple after Solomon dedicated it.  Again …. WOW!

For me our friend simply said that God has an anointing for me, and when it hits me it will be big and awesome.

God is ….. WOW….

But all of that is just the introduction for the real reason for this post.

This morning, before I sent the family off to assembly, Nikao was watching a show on TV with a preacher praying for the sick and seeng them healed.  First, I realized that this was the first time that he was sitting down in one place and being intent on the TV for something that wasn’t cartoons. Lesanne and I started to pray that what God was doing on the TV would impart to the little boy.  At breakfast, I felt a nudge from the Holy Spirit, so I knelt down beside him as he had his cereal.  I asked him if he remembered the story of Jesus dying for him on the Cross.  He did.  (He makes me read it to him quite often.)  I had a toy in my hand and I asked him if I gave it to him as a gift what would he say.  He said “Thank you” after I presented him with the toy.  I explained that Jesus dying on the Cross was a gift to us, so that we could live with him and have him in our hearts.  I sang the old Sunday School chorus that I learned as a boy:

“Into my heart, into my heart
Come into my heart Lord Jesus
Come in today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart Lord Jesus”

And I explained that to have Jesus into his heart all he has to do is thank God for the gift of Jesus Christ’s death.  I was being a little overwhelmed by the presence of God and my emotions at that point, so Lesanne led him in a prayer of salvation.  I laid hands on him afterwards and prayed that God’s purposes would be done in his life, and that what he had prayed be sealed so that Satan would not steal it.  And then I knelt on the floor and cried in joy. 🙂

I know the little boy is only four.  I’m praying that my God will keep him, as the Word says that He is able to keep that which I have committed to him.  So in faith I am declaring to the blogosphere – I LED MY LITTLE BOY TO JESUS CHRIST TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

!Nikao, Robert, Lesanne and Jonathan (l-r)

Nikao, Robert, Lesanne and Jonathan (l-r)

Please pray for our family – Nikao, his brother Jonathan, my wife Lesanne and myself – that GOD WILL CONTINUE TO POUR OUT HIS BLESSINGS ON US ALL – and that at the proper time, Jonathan too, will COME TO FAITH and that the Glory of the LORD will rest upon us ALL!

Rob, listen to your kids – God’s going to drop words into their mouths for your benefit!…I have seen this…Ethan at the age of 5 – he was running around the house and shouting out a word – PERSEVERANCE…….and that was a big word for him and guess what he even knew the meaning….upon asking him, he said….NEVER GIVE UP…i couldn’t have explained it better!!!
