On 31 March 2013, in a dream, I was given a piece of paper with a message written on it in different languages. I was to deliver the message, but there were many obstacles and distractions on the way. The message read as follows,
“How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace, who brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation, and says to Zion, “YOUR GOD REIGNS.”
As you well know, this is a scripture from Isaiah 52:7. I shared it with a few people and decided to wait and pray. As I prayed this morning, however, I had an increasing sense of the awesome weight of the presence, glory and majesty of our God and was reminded of the message in the dream. I turned to the scripture again, this time focusing on the following verse as well –
“How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace, who brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation, and says to Zion, “YOUR GOD REIGNS. The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the Lord to Zion.” – Isaiah 52:7-8
The Holy Spirit immediately prompted me to share this message with the Church in the United Kingdom and the nations:
“God, the Father of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, wants to remind His Church that He is still KING and REIGNS over the nations of the earth. Despite the physical evidence, the Lord still reigns over the nations, thus the Gospel of Jesus Christ is still as relevant now as when it was first preached! The Lord ASSURES His Church that the Kingdom of God – righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit – is in your midst, and God will show Himself strong. (Psalm 2; Psalm 110)
Therefore, this is not the time for the Church to grow weak and weary. This is not the time to give up. This is the time to “Awake, put on strength, shake yourself from the dust, loosen yourself from the bonds and yokes of your neck and put on your beautiful garments!” This is the time to PREPARE for a visitation from your God, indeed, the watchmen are already beginning to see the Lord return to strengthen and empower His Church. This is the time to PRAY as never before. This is the time to PREACH the full gospel of Jesus Christ, as never before. This is the time to PROCLAIM His Kingdom. Therefore, be encouraged and intensify prayer and begin to prepare for a visitation that will strengthen, empower and embolden the Church of Jesus Christ to proclaim His gospel. YOUR GOD REIGNS!!! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. Indeed!
As I continued to pray, the Holy Spirit brought the words of this hymn by Henry Burton to me and laid it on my heart to share it as well.
There’s a light upon the mountains,
And the day is at the spring,
When our eyes shall see the beauty
And the glory of the King:
Weary was our heart with waiting,
And the night watch seemed so long,
But His triumph day is breaking
And we hail it with a song.
Hark! We hear a distant music
And it comes with fuller swell;
’Tis the triumph song of Jesus,
Of our King, Immanuel!
Zion, ye forth to meet Him!
And, my soul, be swift to bring
All thy sweetest and thy dearest
For the triumph of our King!
The message from the Lord is this simple reminder that “YOUR GOD REIGNS!” It is time to PRAY, PREPARE, PREACH and PROCLAIM! JESUS CHRIST REIGNS!!!

In obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit, I am making an electronic copy of my book, DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE, available for free downloads. Please read about the book below. Click on this link for your free e-copy – http://www.womenintune.org/publication/
ABOUT THE BOOK
God’s attributes are manifested in the physical, and His nature is entwined with every aspect of our being. A study of the physical make-up of woman would, therefore, give us more insight into the nature of God in women, since we were created in His image.
DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE is a profoundly life-changing book that explores the physical and physiological attributes of woman, in an attempt to discover her inherent spiritual strengths, abilities, capabilities, and ultimately, purpose. The book discusses woman’s God-given strength and ability to reproduce and nurture life by taking, multiplying and incubating ‘seed’, then labouring to birth the fruit of that seed – another human being.
In an era where there is so much turmoil, pain, confusion, terror, rebellion and wickedness, DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE will enlighten, empower, equip and challenge women to discover and appreciate their inherent God-given gifts, and rise up, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to take the seeds of the kingdom of God and birth the fruits of righteousness, peace and joy through Jesus Christ, in their homes, communities, cities, nations and the world.
BOOK REVIEW by Lucille Onyema
DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE, by Jennifer Wallace, is a thought-provoking book that takes you on a journey of discovery into the unique nature, design and purpose of woman, created in God’s image. As I read this remarkable and detailed look at God’s work in woman, I was totally inspired to celebrate who I am in Christ. The premise for this book is that purpose determines design and function; hence, it endeavours to discover God’s purpose for woman by observing how she has been designed to function naturally.
In DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE, woman’s abilities and strengths – conception, pregnancy and labour – are described in detail. Her ability to multiply seed, create and nurture life is also highlighted. This reproductive capability is portrayed as a mere shadow and reflection of her inherent spiritual nature.
I smiled all too many a time, as I read DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE, becoming excited at how my ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ body has been designed to functions! Truly, the book caused me to take a good look at God’s nature in me. It further challenged me to use these perspectives to enable me to effectively live and fulfil God’s purpose for my life. My bigger challenge, however, is to discover ways in which I can use what I have discovered to enhance God’s kingdom.
DESIGNED FOR PURPOSE also has reflective questions and notes at the end of each chapter, making this a real effective study aid. The book is for women, but would also help men to know and appreciate women even better. Pastors and leaders must read the book to gain fresh revelation on how to make the most of this vast resource of underutilised strengths, inherent in women in their churches, for God’s kingdom business. To every woman out there, however, I would say, pick up your copy, go back to God’s drawing board, take a good hard look at yourself, discover why you were created and then step into your purpose with joy!
