When the Fig Tree Starts to Bud

When Jesus told His disciples about the troubled times awaiting the world before He returns to earth, He said to them that when the branch of the fig tree is tender and the leaves are appearing, that summer is upon them, and that the time of His coming is near.

Marelize explains the seasons of the fig tree, of when the branches are tender and the leaves are budding, which brings a greater understanding, of what Jesus meant.

The fig tree produces different types of figs during its different seasons. That sets it apart from other fruit trees. Then the passage in Song of Solomon, about the bridegroom calling his bride to arise, when the winter is gone and the green figs appears, becomes clear, as a call by Jesus as Bridegroom, for His Bride, to get ready.

Jesus also calls His disciples to prepare for His return. One of the ways in which we need to prepare, is to bear fruit, especially in this time of the Covid 19 Pandemic. An example of this, is the barren fig tree that Jesus encountered, in a time when He needed it, to bear fruit.

Loving My Lord with Everything in Me

Jesus once said that to love the Lord with all of your heart, your soul, your mind and your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself, is what will cause you to truly live. Marelize shares what it means to love God in each of these areas, and how our love for God can grow, and can cause us to feel at peace in this time of fear, in the midst of the Corona Virus Pandemic. She also shares about Jesus’ restoration of Simon Peter’s love relationship with Him, after he had denied that he had known Jesus.

Luke 10:27 Deut.6:5 Lev.19:18 Zeph.3:17 Rev.12:11 Ps.18 John 21:15-19 John 14:15-21 1 John 4:7-20 Eph.3:16

He Heals the Brokenhearted

While we are in the time of the Covid Pandemic, God wants reveal Himself as healer not only of our physical bodies, but also of our emotional brokenness and woundedness. Marelize shares about God’s heart for the brokenhearted and how He wants to heal, by likening His process of healing to how olive oil was used in Bible times on wounds, to bring soothing and healing.

Ps. 147:2 Luke 10:34 Song 1:3 Luke 4:18 Isa. 1:6 Ps. 34:18 Isa. 41:10 Isa. 57:15 Ps. 51:17

The ‘dunamis’ Power in Jesus’ Name

Marelize shares about her experience of being infected with the Covid 19 virus, how the Lord prepared her for this journey, and about Jesus’ nature and power to save, to heal and to deliver from pestilence.

She shares from the book of Luke the different ways in which Jesus healed the sick, and in particular what happened when the woman with the flow of blood touched the hem of His garment. This woman was someone who had an understanding of His power, or as it is called in Greek, His ‘dunamis’, and she therefore had an expectation that she would be healed.

To understand the depth of His power, we need to understand the meaning of Jesus’ name, that He would save, or as it is called in Greek, that He would ‘sozo’, which also means heal, or deliver, His people from their sin and from the effects of sin.

May all who need His healing, experience His power and nature, to heal, and to deliver, especially in this time of the Covid Pandemic.

The Virgin and the Lamp Oil – an Assessment of 2020

On the last day of 2020 Marelize shares about looking back over the past year, and assessing your growth in your relationship with God. She uses the plants (Pomegranate, Henna, Myrrh, Spikenard, Saffron, Calamus, Cinnamon, Frankincense & Aloe) in the garden of the bride, who was ready to meet her bridegroom in Song of Solomon, as yardsticks of measuring our growth in the different areas of our spiritual lives. Some of these examples are – growth in intimacy with God, growth in protecting and advancing His kingdom, growth in the knowledge of His word, in speaking His word, and in living according to His word. Matt.24 Song 4:9-14 Jer.23:5-6 Eph.4:22-24 Isa.61:10 Rom.12:10 Song 1:12-13 Isa.11:1-3 Song 7:12 Jam.4:9 Heb.10:19-22 2 Cor.3:16 Isa.9:6 Joh.17:17-19 Rom.12:1-2 Eph.6:13 2 Tim.2:21

The Vessel of Gold, the Cedar Tree and the Pandemic

The tree called the cedar of Lebanon has many lessons for us as Christians, with its exceptional height, and breadth and root system.

The Bible says that the righteous shall grow like the cedar of Lebanon. This includes growing to become a vessel of gold, useful for God our Master and prepared for every good work. This is crucial at this time of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

2 Tim 2:19-21 Ps 92:12-14 Eze 31 John 4:14 John 7:38 Num 24:6 Col 2:6-7 Eph 4:14 1 Pet 1:6-16

I Am Yahweh Rapha, the God Who Heals You

Praying Over the Waters in Your Area

What is happening in and around the waters in your area has a spiritual effect on the water, which can have a spiritual effect on creation surrounding the waters. Marelize uses the example of the quarreling that took place where Isaac’s servants dug wells, where years later, in the same area the Israelites contended with Moses about their lack of water. The place was even named after the strife that happened there.

God created water for various purposes, amongst others, water is created – to bring life, to bring praise to God, to quench thirst, for cleansing and for healing. Our spiritual enemy will do all in his power to cause water to bring the opposite – to cause death, to cause destruction, to cause sicknesses or to leave filth because of contamination.

The Christian has dominion to speak to God’s creation, that it will come in line with God’s purposes – Marelize gives guidelines in how to pray and do prophetic actions at the water sources in your area.

Anointed for His Purpose

This radio talk is about the Christian’s anointing connected to his calling and purpose.

God called and set apart Jeremiah in his mother’s womb (Jer 1). The same was recorded by the Apostle Paul. Though this happened before birth, the anointing on Paul’s calling only started when he was stopped on the road to Damascus, when Jesus Christ was revealed to him (Gal 1:15-16). True to the meaning of his name in Hebrew, which means ‘little’, he belittled others before his Jesus-encounter. The derivative of that Hebrew word, means to be stopped, describes the nature of his encounter. This leads us, to one way in which we can know God’s calling and purpose on our lives – by looking at the meaning of our names.

Your name may have a meaning that is in line with God’s calling on your life. But if your name has a negative meaning, something that is contrary to God’s calling, or not in line with what Ps 139 says about you, then you need to renounce that meaning (2 Cor 4:2 &10:3-5). Jabez is a good example of that (1 Chron 4:9-10). Marelize shares on how to do it, how to deal with strongholds connected to the meaning of your name, and how to declare God’s meaning and identity connected to your name. She also deals with examples of being anointed for a purpose, from the life of David (1 Sam 15,16), Jehu (2 Kings 9), and Jehoshabeath (2 Chron 22). Other scriptures – Is 49:1 Song 8:6

This is a follow-up of the radio talk – Anointed, Consecrated & Empowered by Him.

The Mercy of God over the Nation – about the Myrtle, the Angel & The Red Horse

When a nation is in a time in which it seems like corruption and criminal activities are on the increase, it is time in which God is calling His children as the Royal Priesthood, to stand in the gap, and to pray for God’s mercy.

Marelize uses the vision of Zechariah, of the Angel of the Lord on a red horse in front of a myrtle bush, to illustrate how intercession at the right time, happened for Israel, with Daniel doing it at about the same time, so that God’s promise given through Jeremiah could be fulfilled. Different aspects of the vision, like the myrtle bush in the deep place and the red horse, gives meaning to the vision, as the Angel of the Lord stood in the gap for God’s people. This is compared with Esther, whose Hebrew name in English, is Myrtle, who also stood in the gap for her people at the right time.

It is time, to stand in the gap for South Africa, but also for the United States of America in this regard.
