Keynote – A Time to Shine!
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1) God has set the Spiritual times and seasons, and I believe that now is a time for us all to shine.
We are so grateful for the grace of God that was with us at our Annual Vision Week, conveying to us a real experience of both refreshing and prophetic encouragement. If you missed any of the meetings you can still view them here: http://www.kt.org/2018/01/vision-week-2018-session-1/.
On page 6 of this edition of the Revival Times we have detailed a particularly encouraging prophetic word that I gave during the week regarding us arising and shining – do read it through prayerfully.
Shining spiritual diamonds
Every rough diamond has the potential to shine brilliantly, but only through the craftsmanship of a master jeweller. Painstakingly and with great expertise the jeweller cuts each rough diamond into the optimum shape for it both to reflect light and also to allow light to penetrate through with a great sparkling effect. The fewer imperfections within a diamond, the more freely light can move though it and the brighter it will shine. Finally the jeweller expertly polishes away any external roughness or blemishes on the surface of the diamond.
You and I are rough diamonds in God’s kingdom and the Holy Spirit is gently and graciously shaping, cleansing and polishing us through his presence and his word. He is increasingly enabling his light to shine through us from one level of shining glory to another (2 Corinthians 3:18).
In these days let us allow the master jeweller of the Holy Spirit freedom to work on us, in us and through us. And remember when you look at a diamond in a jewellers shop it is always placed on the darkest of cloths to best reflect its brilliance. Do not fear the darkness around you, it is only there to allow you to shine for Jesus in the brightest possible way!

[3 minute read] Many who hold to the theory of evolution wonder what’s in store for the human race. Are we going to evolve into a new superhuman, even divine human species? As is often the case with questions only recently conceived, the Bible anticipated and answered this one thousands of years ago.
[6 minute read] The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Jesus came to bring you the full and abundant life of His kingdom. This life, is the rich, spiritual life of God Himself that overflows into His creation. When God made the world, He provided for it in abundance. It was teeming with life!
