For your light has come!
And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you
And deep darkness the people;
But the LORD will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19 NKJV)
Thank you to all subscribers and visitors for making Urgent prophetic words about a cut-off date on God’s time-line, as delivered by Neville Johnson, one of the year’s top three blogs. I first heard about him when Paul Keith Davis referred to a prophetic vision he’d had circa 2007-8 of the Days of Noah happening in our time. Almost simultaneously, his friend Neville had the same experience – details in second section of this post.
Neville was once again a main speaker at this year’s Lancaster Prophetic Conference in California hosted by Shekinah Worship Centre. I quoted his insights into recent globally significant meetings in New York as regards the false church.
In my humble opinion his teaching throughout three sessions deserves careful study. In opening the first he remarks,
“I’m going to tell you the truth because, you know, the Bible says ‘You shall know the truth and it will set you free’ and the days in which we’re living are awesome but (for unbelievers: RB) frightening days. We can’t go through life saying ‘Hallelujah, everything’s great!’ – everything’s not great unless you’re walking closely with the Lord!
“You know, it’s the goodness and the severity of the Lord – there’s light and there is darkness – we need to understand the days in which we’re living…”
Neville continues stressing the importance of understanding the present times and the need to ‘trust and obey’ and emphasises the dire results of erroneous church teaching. As an example he refers to what happened during the Boxer Revolution in China.
I’m pulling out pertinent scribbles from my notes on those first two sessions to (1) give a flavour of what Neville said; (2) enable comparison with Charles Shamp’s prophetic and oral teaching in January and April respectively. Numbers denote approx. elapsed time for reference purpose (emphasis on ‘Enoch’ re. blood moon Hebrews 11 quotation).:
- the church – not the people or gov’t – must take responsibility for nations forsaking commandments and principles of God and because it didn’t in the West, it got trampled underfoot by ungodly men – BUT there is some good in all this 
- God has already given an extension of time for getting things right – but this comes to an end next month (ie Sept 2015) – time has run out 
- we must know God’s nature – He is above all good and loving and extends time of rather than bringing judgement – [as in days of Noah when Enoch foresaw what was coming and Methusalah was born yet the Flood wouldn’t come until he died – 26]
- churches doesn’t know the times; unable to see what’s coming over the horizon
- the world is to see Jesus revealed through us before He comes in order for us to bring in the harvest 
- vision of volcanic activity in Yellowstone Park
- vision of a lynchpin being pulled out of a huge wheel with a resultant collapse – something happening this month (Aug) will trigger what happens in Sept 
- Like Enoch we need to walk with God as we’ve seen what’s coming 
- Grace is coming to enable us to walk with God as it’s going to be lot worse than in the days of Noah 
- As in Acts 2:20 sun darkened and moon turn to blood and whomsoever calls on the God will be saved; ie. church not raptured needs to be saving souls 
- Blood moon tetrad taking us into new dispensation
- God is going to give us great authority against opposition [1:03]
- 2Thess1 – don’t be disturbed or deceived – we’re going to be here when antichrist revealed – not raptured [1:05]
- Great apostasy – Lord clearly showed a 3-stage falling away as the church gets smaller but brighter – having been taught lies many Christians will fall away – ie. the tares will be taken out of the church (not world) [1:08] NB: confirms first email.
- God isn’t going to fulfil our dreams but HIS for very few can be trusted with wealth – need to sow now and get Lord’s provision when necessary [1:14]
- False prophet and false church [from 1:15 mins – as reported in this blog]
- coming economic collapse will be much worse than previously with storms of unrighteousness – mobs attacking churches to be repulsed as in Sodom [1:22]
- early Church kept all the Feasts except for Tabernacles. This last blood moon ushers in a new era that we’re now entering into. It brings us to the end of the age
- United Kingdom – judgement but will become End-time spiritual empire [1:27] – even better than charismatic period in 20th Century [1:35]
- A new kind of grace will be available after this Feast of Tabernacles [1:44]
I trust you will be blessed by listening to the Lord as you watch this Session. Neville’s second message is much more upbeat. As mentioned before, he teaches in depth on the necessity of being heavenly minded in order to see ‘The BIGGER Picture’ God has for His children and for the new earth, now and in the near future – the Age to Come!
Hope to present my notes for Session 6 in due course.
Mulling over the content of the latest post upon awakening I knew which scripture would act as a bridge to follow-up teaching from Neville Johnson. (I didn’t expect yet another instance of what I’d noted of Charlie Shamp’s New Year word on the increase in prophetical sight and comprehension.)
It would be sensible, however, to check that verse’s context and so I dug into Romans chapter 8. And so I invite you to check and meditate along with me. I trust this will enable a good grasp of both posts. Here’s the NKJV text of Romans 8:14-22 with relevant and associated verses underscored:
‘For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”.
‘The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
‘For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
‘For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.’

In reading the chapter I especially noticed several other foundation points about living and walking not according to the flesh but to the Holy Spirit. This means we’re very different to those who are carnally minded. They’re figuratively ‘the walking-dead’ for they’re not blessed with the indwelling Holy Spirit, per verses 9-11:
‘But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.’
Contemplating the depth of Apostle Paul’s exposition I let those word soak into me, especially regarding suffering and what we’ve endured this year and previously.
Afterwards used my phone to log into WordPress (blog platform). It’s not an entirely satisfactory method of blogging so gets rarely used other than for a quick check of my site’s appearance so I can see what some visitors will see.
This time I did something really unusual – I drilled down into yesterday’s statistics and looked at something I’ve never bothered with! It has various listings the lowest placed being ‘Clicks’. It seems this shows which links I’ve placed within the blog were clicked by readers to access those websites. I decided to follow one of them to see what my visitors would have seen – it’s ‘080808’.
It’s one I haven’t myself visited for a while and is a listing of revival prophecies for the British Isles opens by blogger by Chris Welch. His motto’s exactly appropriate for our consideration of ‘The Age to Come’.:
“Prepare for an adventure into the unknown, into a type of Christianity that has never been known before…”
He was recommended by a friend and so I checked the latest on his home page via my phone. His Google BlogSpot gives a convenient listing of that page not available on PC and I spotted a tantalising title and opened up The biggest breakthrough of all time.
It opens intriguingly,
Morris Cerullo says all truth is parallel.
What he means by this is what is spiritually true NOW and being revealed NOW is also working itself out in natural parallels.
THERE IS NOTHING HALF-HEARTED ABOUT ROMANS 8. Everyone should read it regularly, for the same reason that a whole generation of us have repeatedly listened to this 1975 message by Ern Baxter.
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
WOW – only minutes before had I read that in my study bible!!
Please note I’m not endorsing Chris’ site or its content. I can but conclude the Lord’s hand led me in this instance…
In connection with Monday morning’s lunar eclipse, or ‘blood moon’, it’s opportune to meet an unfulfilled promise relating to prophetic words and teaching heard in April. In fact, their relevance relates to an insight I’d been blessed with on ‘The Age to Come’. Also, references to the work of OT prophet Daniel resonated with a personal prophetic word. (Publicly delivered, it’s available to read here.)
Therefore, it’s appropriate to look first at scriptures relating to that implicit waiting and looking forward to fulfilment of the Lord’s promised plans – even if in the far future! I’ve emphasised the parts relating to visionary-auditory revelation:
On Faith – Hebrews 11
‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible…
‘By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. [Genesis 5:21-24 ‘All the days of Enoch were 365 years. And Enoch walked with God and was not found…’]
‘But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
‘By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
‘By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.’ (verses 11-13 omitted)
‘For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.
‘But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.’

The Book Beyond the Bible
At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, it comes after The Apocalypse, or Revelation, given to Jesus Christ for showing to and recording by His close disciple, the Apostle John.
As noted in Revival 1: glory stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its implicit existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!
That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.
2015 Feast of Tabernacles’ Blood Moon
Monday morning’s event was the fourth consecutive eclipse occurring on the first and last Jewish feast days on two subsequent years, as in the above chart by pastor Mark Biltz. So he described them as a ‘Blood Moon Tetrad’.
I recall his friend William Koenig referring to their discussions of 2007-8 on this, contrary to John Hagee’s false claims of later discovery; as disclosed here. Mark’s research into NASA’s astronomical data may be read in Blood Moons: Adding Up The Evidence.
Now to expand upon what I blogged on Monday about Charlie Shamp’s position on that day’s blood moon.:
There was much new intellectual and spiritual food to digest from the Passover/Easter weekend conference reported here. I’d hoped to have shared some as the concluding part to ‘God-incidents’ validate cycles and point to the near future wherein I refer to 40 and 55 year cycles. The intention was to share something of what Charlie taught and connect it to what I was given and started noticing about 70-year cycles in connection with what he said about a specific date. (Sticking his neck out there!)
How that conference started after worship is told in A vision: Sowing into the Kingdom of God. Whilst amazed at what I’d seen, I heard him refer to blood moons and correct the public misunderstanding gained from some sensationalist American journalism. As reported earlier, he believes Monday’s 4th blood moon marks the beginning of the time the Army of God will start appearing.
Charlie posits a two-year period starting on Monday 27th, in which we’re going to begin to see people who’ll be able to pray from within the Age to Come. Why two years? He explains,
“It leads to 23rd September 2017, which reveals something very special that we’re going to hear a lot about in coming days.
It’s a two-year period in which God is going to see how much He can trust you – because everybody wants to do the stuff, everyone wants to be able to work miracles – but how much can God actually trust you with that?”
To indicate what he means by this – and its spiritual importance – Charlie referred to God making Moses ‘as a god to pharaoh’ (Exodus 7).
“In other words He said to Moses; ‘I’m going to make you My mouthpiece, My oracle – that you’re not going to do anything out of line other than what I tell you’…
“So along with that revealing is a testing period…an emerging of a generation, which I believe that God is offering to everybody, but there will be a company that actually walk into this!
“It’s a crossing over of a Melchizedek-type priesthood with its kings on the earth…”
In answering his “Why September 23rd 2017?” I’d have told of its personal significance. Instead, he answers by talking about the prophet Daniel, whom he thinks could enter the ‘heavens’ and live in the future. There, he learnt about astronomical events for the time appointed for the Messiah’s birth in Bethlehem.
Accordingly, Daniel could see that ‘star’ and bequeathed this knowledge to his school of Magi, as well as arranged in advance for them to present specific gifts to the Christ-child. That is, Daniel was living in and operating out of the Glory of God within ‘The Age to Come’!
Then, teaching from Revelation 12, Charlie considers how this scripture suggests the very same zodiacal configuration and alignment known to Daniel set for Jesus’ birth – and which will be repositioned again for the first time in 2,000 years on 23rd September 2017 !
For details of this astronomical alignment and biblical significance read a brief blog by Mark Conn published in January 2014: Revelation 12, Blood Moons and April 2014. (Note that Charlie would agree with the opening caveat re astrology. Mark makes very brief references to a possibility of the Tribulation – June 2014 saw ISIS sweep across Iraq with an extensive, barbaric persecution of Christians.)
Another of Charlie’s comments that plugged into what I’d done only recently was his saying the Jewish Temple had two spiral stairways. This reminded me of my selecting the image of a double-spiral and describing a spiral staircase to depict the corkscrew nature of Time itself in The ‘Endgame’ gets ramped up another level. That was a sensitive week or so in blogging, as explained in the subsequent part 2, to which this post acts as a successor.
On the final day of the conference Charlie spoke about the astronomical situation at the start of Islam, about which I’d been blogging – our eyeballs locked as he addressed me personally when talking about it! (How did he know? Did Holy Spirit tell him?)
In our weighing this inspirational teaching let’s look at pertinent points of what Charlie published on New Year’s Day under Prayer Points for 2015-20. I’ve found the first part to be accurate (as underlined), as may be inferred from several of my blogs. So I have a confidence in the possible accuracy of subsequent part’s promises (as reported above):
The Seer Anointing Intensified (extract)
‘The Lord spoke to me and said that this will be a year that the seers are coming into their multi-dimensional sight. A new realm of the prophetic will be birthed this year. In January many prophetic people will enter into a season of incubation for greater manifestation. The Lord showed me that from January to September will be a time of preparation for what is going to be birthed towards the end of September after the final blood moon on the 28th of that month…This nine-month period will be a time for the conception and forming of a supernatural movement to be birthed into earth…
‘There will be a birthing of a greater glory at the end of September. A place of unusual power will begin to flow towards the end of 2015 like we have never seen before. Many will begin to taste of the age to come. There will be a prophetic people that will begin to emerge toward the end of next year that will speak a wisdom that is not of this world. They will manifest a message from an age to come. They will transcend the system of the world and operate from a higher order of the supernatural. A Daniel company is coming! This will be a company of prophets who can discern our times with pinpoint accuracy. Some will be given high places to speak into earthly governments around the world. They will have a mandate from The Lord to administer justice and solve complex situations that human intellect can not understand.’
INVITE MY FIRE
I will come and cleanse like a roaring fire, clearing a way for you to complete the work I have given you to do. Ideas have become tainted, projects have lost their potency of holiness, and weariness has set in because the outcomes are no longer fulfilling the original vision and desire that I put with in you.
Remember that I commanded Joshua to burn the towns of the newly invaded promised land with fire, to claim the land. Repent – turnaround – and invite My fire. I will show you what needs to be burned away if you seek me on this. Then walk again into My promises. Take no prisoners. Do not be compromised. See that I can clear the way by cleansing anything that is not of Me and sending My Spirit to empower and re-envision you.
Fire goes in front of him and burns up his enemies around him. His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees it and trembles. The hills melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness and all the nations see his glory.

In the Book of Joel, chapter 2 verses 28-32, the prophet receives a word from the Lord that was famously fulfilled on and after the feast of Pentecost whereupon God’s Holy Spirit was poured out on Jesus’ first apostles and disciples:
On Good Friday last we heard a novel, positive prophetical exposition on the scriptural meaning of the blood moons. At the Passover-Easter conference referred to earlier, Charles Shamp shared his interesting insights the gist of which is as follows.: Continue reading
THIS POST MUST BE IMPORTANT in view of today’s extremely ‘buggy’, tediously slow connections with WordPress blogging platform and my PC’s Internet Explorer and its own internal processes! (Chrome couldn’t connect at all.) I haven’t had such difficult a day blogging in years! I was going to have begun this morning after quickly adding a couple of paragraphs to the last post as it was already in draft.
In this tight time slotted in my birthday and our anniversary week this post, therefore, must needs be a potted summary of events. Now, I’m stopped from opening posts in other tabs as there’s no WP security certificate from Microsoft! Crazy! Something like this happened a couple of years ago in trying to blog about Iran. Then, my ISP got security conscious over content of some WP blogs. Maybe a new patch is the culprit? Seems to be working at last…And I don’t think it was simply to turn me outdoors into the welcome warmth and sunshine… Continue reading
In …the Lord’s up to something I referred to three electronic/electro-mechanical failures upon returning from holiday, and that one brought a surprising outcome. Here’s what happened:
The Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation machine Nina uses for suppressing pain from her damaged spine started malfunctioning after our return! Purchased from Amazon, it’s only four months old but outside their 30-days return period, yet within statutory warranty. This pocket-sized, battery-operated device hangs from the waistband and is connected to a couple of sticky pads on either side of her spine and through which high frequency electrical impulses are delivered.

Continuing from the previous post and for what they may be worth, here’s my personal comments upon the extensive prophetic word brought by Johnny Enlow. Read it in full with graphics by clicking the following title’s link to The Elijah List – or, if continuous text is easier, read it here on Facebook.
You may think this post’s title isn’t directly relevant to the material, but it came to mind as I split what was originally one long piece into two posts because this ‘most potent’ word warrants more prominence. Only after its publication did I reflect upon and query the title, but then realised the prophetic promises and Johnny’s thoughts are all part of the Bride’s preparatory training to become like our Lord and Bridegroom. Later, one of the most powerful dreams I’ve ever had brought a personal validation of these words.:
“This September 14, 2015 begins a most remarkable year on the Hebraic Calendar that will exceed the expectations of even the most optimistic kingdom observer. Having finished three 7-year cycles (1994-2001, 2001-2008, 2008-2015 – see Rosh Hashanah 2014 word) we now enter into the fourth and defining 7 year period, that has birthed the age of the restoration of all things (Acts 3:21), and that has released a majestic Era of Renaissance (see my brand-new book: ‘7 Mountain Renaissance: Vision and Strategy Through 2050’).

How can I be sure? The ‘gremlins’ have been playing up! As sure as eggs are eggs, when there’s some sort of spiritual opposition we know we’re walking with the Lord and by His Spirit. It’s as though there’s a directly proportional resistance to His activity.
That is, when He’s about to do a new thing and make changes in our lives, opposition reacts and plays up – the more pronounced that is then we watch for the Lord doing something or moving in our lives. (See below.)
Fascinating that it’s happened to us last weekend (12/13th) and into this week. It’s the start of a new year according to the Hebraic calendar and is called ‘The Head of the Year’ (Rosh Hashanah), marking the beginning of the civil calendar for year 5776 and which starts the seventh month of their religious calendar. This, and other festivals, do not originate in the Jews themselves but in the Lord, for He ordained it as one of seven sacred feasts for His Hebraic people to observe. Continue reading
