A personal reflection on the First Sundays in Advent

Featured

Tomorrow, 27th November, is the First Sunday of Advent 2016.

Within a few weeks of launching this blog in November 2011 I posted the following, which conveys why the First Sunday of Advent is always highly nostalgic because of A Life-Changing Dream. It brought a totally unexpected encounter with Jesus Christ. As an unbeliever I’d dismissed a young evangelist and discontinued his visits. So I certainly didn’t anticipate – let alone wish for – such a startling event. This post is about subsequent information that validated that event: Continue reading

Recount (a confirmatory dream)

It’s ABSOLUTELY NOT COINCIDENTAL your dream confirms my previous post on what 3 prophetical voices AROUND THE WORLD (Australia, USA and Ireland – how many more?) were hearing over Sunday-Monday. By the word of two or three witnesses is a matter established (Deut 19:15)!  Note: Tony was alerted to mine before posting this!

My Dreams and Visions

I had a dream the night of 12/4/2016. In the dream I saw a well-dressed woman wearing a skirt but I could view her only from the neck down. She had a pet carrier that she was carrying with her . I saw her open the carrier and as she did 3 snakes came out. It was at this point in the dream that the word, “recount”, was dropped into my spirit .

I believe that there is a valid reason that I saw the woman from the neck down that being she did not wish to be identified .

Snakes are most always associated with evil in the Word. Being called a snake is no compliment . It is inferring that the individual is sneaky and underhanded.

The snakes were not big by any means but we’re small enough for all 3 to fit into a pet carrier the…

Bridge o’ Pond goes global for President-elect Trump and ‘snakes’!

This morning’s collection of unread weekend emails confirms what we heard yesterday at Church of His Presence in Alabama.

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the AtlanticAs the sun sets this afternoon let me ever so briefly join the prophetical dots by taking not just my ‘Bridge over the Pond’ but flying over to Australia too – a bridge over the Pacific!

John Kilpatrick’s message entitled ‘Hold Fast’ confirmed what I’d read on Saturday about Prime Minister May telling Parliament that Christians should be able to share our faith in the workplace and Archbishop of Canterbury’s dedicating 2017 as a year for the defence freedom of Judeo-Christian values.

So I was going to blog first thing about The Turning Tide, to quote Dr Clifford Hill…but not yet…

JEHU and TRUMP vs JEZEBEL

JohnK 214_logoIn teaching on OT prophet Elijah, John referred to Elijah’s fear of queen Jezebel and her witchcraft stopping him from completing his God-given destiny. So the Lord had him anoint Elisha, who anointed Jehu (a strong-willed, even reckless character) as king of Israel to destroy Jezebel and king Ahab’s line (2 Kings 9-10).

My notes have John suddenly saying (from 1:39:00 of video),

“I sense in my spirit now, because you know as well as I do the devil’s not going to let all this (post-Election) exhilaration and all this hope and all (Trump’s) well-laid plans alone. He’s going to tamper with it as much as he can. And that spirit of Jezebel that was in so many of those people in Washington – even his opponent that he ran against – you can’t tell me that spirit’s going to tuck away somewhere and go to bed and sleep for the next 8 years! It’s going to fight against America and against his leadership and we need to pray…”

The church then stood for several minutes praising God and interceding for President-elect’s protection and against that spirit and that Trump will become a Jehu and trample upon it! 

Now read what Lana Vawser published this morning in Australia.:

LanaVawser“Recently I felt the Lord saying “I have been using Trump to SHAKE, and now I will use him to TREAD UPON SNAKES!!!

“A vision played out before me where I saw the Lord crowning Trump with wisdom and discernment, with an incredible ability in increased ways to see the “snakes” of deception, the snakes of “evil” and the snakes of “lies” and “traps” the enemy has set up to attempt to hinder the move of God in the nation. This incredibly strong sense surrounded me of the eyes of God’s people must be upon JESUS. I then heard the words “Do not put your eyes on Trump as the Saviour of the nation, but listen to the voice behind him and the One who is using him. Look to Me!!!!!”

“I watched as the Lord began working even deeper in Trump’s heart to bring about a greater awakening to his need of Jesus and the necessity for wisdom and discernment from on high. I had a vision where I saw…” (continue reading here).

Then, early this afternoon Veronika West writes,

“IN THIS SEASON, I PROPHESY YOU SHALL TREAD UPON SNAKES AND SCORPIONS AND NOT BE HARMED”!

Verinoka West Fbk“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”

“And He said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightening fall from heaven. Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

“Not withstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

“We hear clearly in the words of Jesus that evil spirits cannot harm us, as long as we exercise the Power and Authority that has been given to us. ONLY in the name of Jesus Christ WILL WE OVER COME IN VICTORY. Evil forces and the presence of death cannot resist or stand against the Authority of Jesus. GLORY TO GOD!

“I hear the Father say to us today, “Behold, I have given you all Authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, I have given you Authority over all the powers of the enemy, Nothing shall by any means harm you. Behold, now Pay attention My Beloved, First and foremost, it is I who gives you the Authority for I am the Great Creator come to be Saviour to ALL of mankind. My Glory and Power is far above the powers and principalities and rulers of darkness, I have pre-eminence in all things, and All things have been created by My hand and for My pleasure”!….” (continue reading as Veronika prophesies and makes several declarations).

Veronika West: prophetic word of radical revival in Britain

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this Word for the United Kingdom from Veronika West dated 4th December (I’m reminded of what was seen during Trooping the Colour and the subsequent prophetic declaration “The Redcoats Are Coming!”):

“LOOK! THE CHILDREN ARE COMING CARRYING THE FIRES OF REVIVAL, A TIME OF SIFTING IS TURNING TO A TIME OF RADICAL SHIFTING”!

Two days ago I was in a time of prayer for Theresa May when I heard in the spirit the sound of a beating drum but it seemed a way off in the distance, as I continued to press into the sound, suddenly I saw an army of children marching on the horizon, I saw them dressed in garments of pure white light, they moved and advanced to the sound of a beating drum, immediately I heard the Father say,

“MY DAUGHTER BEHOLD I AM DOING A NEW THING IN THIS HOUR AND IN THIS NATION, TELL MY PEOPLE TO FORGET THE FORMER THINGS AND NOT TO EVEN CONSIDER THE THINGS OF OLD, NOW IT SHALL SPRING FORTH; YOU SHALL KNOW IT? WATCH! FOR MY LAMBS ARE ARISING AND ADVANCING IN THIS HOUR, CLOTHED IN THE FIERY GARMENTS OF REVIVAL, AND ANOINTED WITH KINGDOM POWER, AUTHORITY AND REVELATION, THESE ARE THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF PEACE AND PURITY WHO WILL LEAD THE SHEEP BY A NEW WAY, A WAY THAT LEADS TO A NEW LAND OF PROMISE AND VICTORY, FOR I AM RESHAPING, READJUSTING, REFASHIONING AND REBUILDING THIS NATION, IT’S TIME FOR MY PEOPLE TO MOVE AND SHIFT, MOVE AND SHIFT, EYES HAVE NOT SEEN, EARS HAVE NOT HEARD AND MINDS HAVE NOT CONCEIVED WHAT I AM ABOUT TO DO IN THIS NATION”, says God.

As I heard the Father speak these powerful words, I saw His hand write across the skyline the words,

“PARADIGM SHIFT, IT’S TIME TO MOVE”!

Now after hearing Him speak, I began to praise Him for the NEW THING that He is doing in the midst of our Nation, when the Holy Spirit impressed upon me a picture of a ‘Drummer Boy’ who would march on the battlefield ahead of the Army playing his drum.

The picture was so clear and so powerful that I immediately looked up some details on the duties of a Drummer Boy, and this is what I found; Now among the many tasks of a drummer boy one was to beat the cadence for the soldiers that were marching. But one of his main jobs was to be the communicator for his unit. The drummer boy established communications and kept order among the units in the field. The drummer boy would use one of many drum calls for everything from assembling the troops to march, to gathering the officers for strategy meetings, and also to sound the call to advance or retreat while under enemy fire.

Drummers always remained near a high-ranking officers to play the drum calls that would relay the officer’s orders. The drummer boys were often awakened at all hours of the night to drum the call. Frequently, he would not be able to go back to sleep, because once the men were assembled and deployed, the drummers would lay down their drums and act as runners between outposts, carry stretchers or do whatever was necessary to help the unit.

I found this information incredibly exciting, enlightening, and powerfully prophetic of what God is doing and about to do with the younger generation in our Nation at the critical time!!

Fulfilled prophecies #13 and #14 – David Noakes ‘fall of EU’ & Patsy Southway ‘dominoe effect’

italy-votes_credit-bric-butler

‘Europe in crisis as Italy votes ‘No’ and similar headlines on today’s news-stand echo that Telegraph front-page banner on the Italian referendum’s outcome. Their latest online refers to Germany’s finance minister’s reaction to Italy’s PM Renzi’s resignation: “There’s no reason to conjure up a Euro crisis”!

Therefore, let’s remind ourselves of a couple of prophetic words in the following extracts, emphases added for ease of reference. Click/tap on sub-head link to read in full:

David Noakes: Prophetic Warning Urges “Come Out!”

The pertinent part of what David Noakes brought twelve months ago as being from the Lord reads as follows,

“…Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

“Hear Me, O once godly nation and respond to my call, or you also will come to ruin in that same judgment of destruction. 

Patsy Southway: This Month’s ‘Dominoe Effect’

The thrust of a vision Patsy reported was expected to start happening in May 2016,

“In the vision I saw a long wavy line of dominos (sic). Several, of which, were different colours; with their usual number of dots on them. I sensed that each domino had been strategically placed in preparation for the momentum that occurs when the first one is touched.

“Then God said to me that during the month of May many will see the beginning of a ‘domino effect’ in their lives. As God’s finger touches the very first domino; the rippling effect will be breathtaking!

“I could see immense JOY exploding as long awaited promises and prophetic words that had been spoken, were suddenly, (it seemed suddenly but God has been behind the scenes working all the while) manifesting and bringing to birth the fulfillments that had been longed for…

“I also saw the ENLARGEMENT of territory, of land, and increase in all areas connected with the wealth of God’s Kingdom. As the finger of God touches the first domino we will hear the click click click of the rippling effect throughout the nations!” 

My footnotes to the above posting cover a few examples of ‘dominoes’ known at that time.

How Does Science Enhance Faith?

Thought provoking points from the perspective of a PhD student…

Science and Belief

There is a basic trajectory for a science PhD student, and it goes something like this. Enthusiasm and delight mingled with a frisson of fear, a gradual onset of hard reality and stress, perhaps a dash of boredom and possibly even some despair and disillusionment. This is followed by a long period of determination and hard work, which ends in joy and relief. This is the crucible in which characters are formed, careers are established, and skills are developed which will last a lifetime. Some of the skills learned are very useful: experimental techniques, ways of thinking, organisational and project management skills, and of course knowledge. The less useful ones might include procrastination techniques, ways of bluffing, online gaming and social media skills, and of course surviving for whole days on the contents of the department vending machines.

Joking aside, I know that I am very…

The coming sychronisation of heaven’s and earth’s clocks

Coming the day after I’d briefly commented upon having heard back in 2009 “This is All about to be fulfilled”, these two dreams recounted by Veronika West are, in my humble opinion, quite exceptional:

“WATCH! HEAVEN’S TIME IS NOW MOVING UPON THE HANDS OF EARTH’S CLOCK”

v_west-heaven_earth-time

‘First Dream….Two nights ago I had a very short dream where I saw 12 Wells being unlocked and Mighty Rivers gushed forth from the mouths of these 12 Wells, then I saw 12 different Mantles being released from Heaven and of the 12 mantles that I saw, I only heard 4 being named in my dream, I heard heaven whisper, “Elijah, Esther, Joseph and Jehu”, then I saw 12 baskets over flowing with bread and then 12 Large Pottery Jars full of Wine.

‘Second Dream…I was standing on the axis of the Earth, I could see some of the far off and distant planets of the solar system, it was breathtakingly captivating and beautiful!!

‘As I stood on the axis of the Earth’s surface suddenly a large pole that had many arrows pointing in different directions came out of the ground, as I looked at the arrows I noticed each arrow had the Name of Nation written upon it, and I noticed there was a large clock sitting at the top of the pole, but the Clock seemed to be standing still, but as I continued to watch the clock, suddenly the small second hand began to move very fast, and then the minute hand began to move, and then the hour hand moved. As I watched all three of the hands they began to move very quickly around the face of the large clock, suddenly all three hands stopped at the number 12, Immediately I heard these words,

“THE TIME-PIERCING SWORD IS GOING FORTH TO TURN AND SHIFT THE FACE OF THE NATIONS, FOR HEAVEN’S TIME IS MOVING UPON THE HANDS OF EARTH’S CLOCK, WATCH FOR THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH ARE NOW PERFECTLY ALIGNING WITH HEAVEN’S TIMING”!

‘Then suddenly the arrows on the pole began to move violently around and around, as I watched closely one by one the arrows flew off the pole and each arrow flew into the ground like a stake, I watched as arrow after arrow they penetrated the ground until I saw 12 perfectly lined stakes, I looked again and I could see the 12 Names of Nations now standing in perfect alignment with one another, and I saw the Names of 3 specific Nations, Australia, America and the United Kingdom.

“Stakes became Ancient Gates”
‘THEN SUDDENLY, I saw the stakes in the ground turn and transform into what looked like ancient Gates, now 12 Gates stood before me, each Gate had the Name of a Nation upon it, as I looked at the Gates, I could see 12 Keys. Then suddenly I heard the deep sound of a shofar and out of the heavens came 12 bright lights, I watched closely as one by one the bright lights approached the 12 Gates.

‘Then I heard the words,

“Behold, These are My Twelve Commissioning Apostles and Prophets!”

‘After hearing these words I saw what looked like 12 High Priests wearing crowns upon their heads, each Apostle/High Priest took hold of a key and opened the Ancient Gate and walked through onto the other side.

‘In the dream, I followed closely behind one of the High Priests as he entered through one of the Ancient Gates, and there on the other side of the gate I saw men and woman, some were laying prostrate on their faces, while others were on their knees, they looked like they had been waiting and praying, then I saw the Apostle/High Priest begin to put his hand on their foreheads, he took a small vessel shaped like a horn from under his robe and he began to pour out a golden oil , I watched as he poured the oil over each of those that were kneeling down.

‘Then I heard him say,

“In the Name of Jesus Christ you are Anointed, Appointed and Commissioned as Kings and High Priests carrying all the Authority of Heaven, Now ARISE and Go forth into all the Nations of the Earth and Establish the Kingdom of Heaven!”

‘The Dream ended!

‘Firstly, I believe this dream is multi-layered and my deep sensing is that there is still more to come, however we prophesy in part, but here is what I believe Father is showing us for NOW!

‘The number 12 I believe is significant, as it implies structural beginning or governmental perfection and rule. We know that the nation of Israel comprised of twelve tribes, and it represented a physical type of God’s government on earth. There were also twelve apostles that were chosen by Christ to serve as the foundation for His Church, as well as the kingdom of God. Twelve thousand from each tribe of Israel constitute the 144,000 in the Book of Revelation.
Matt. 10:1-7
Luke 22:29-3
Revelation 7 and 14

‘Furthermore I believe prophetically that the Nations of the Earth are now being perfectly Aligned with Heaven’s Time, I submit we have entered into a Time in History where we are going to see the greatest of Shifting, Sifting and Shaking among the Nations of the Earth. There is a divine reordering and rearrangement that taking place among the Nations, the government of Heaven is being established on earth, I also believe there is a coming a powerful ‘Commissioning Anointing’ that is going to be released to those that have been Waiting and Expectant, and also to those that have hearts that are Open, Ready and Seeking for His Will and His Kingdom purposes to be Established on the earth.

‘I submit the Compass of Heaven is now directing and re-routing the Sons and Daughters of God in this hour, for they will Walk in God’s Perfect Timing and in the Spirit of Unity they will be of one Vision and one purpose, they will be Radical in their Obedience and Sacrifice, this is the Rising Remnant of Radical Reformers, “Called for Such a Time as This”!

‘I prophesy: THIS IS A TIME OF DIVINE RE-ORDERING AND RE-ARRANGEMENT FOR KINGDOM ALIGNMENT, HEAVEN’S RULE AND GOVERNMENT IS BEING ESTABLISHED UPON THE EARTH, AND AS GOD’S LEGISLATORS WE ARE BEING SUPERNATURALLY SENSITISED TO HEAVEN’S TIMING AND HEAVEN’S AGENDA, I PROPHECY IN THIS SEASON GOD IS RESETTING AND RE-CALIBRATING THE INNER WORKINGS OF OUR SPIRITS AND OUR HEARTS ARE BEING PERFECTLY SYNCHRONISED WITH THE HEART-BEAT OF GOD FOR THE NATIONS.’

Veronika West, 30th November, 2016

Amen, and again amen!

Mightily encouraging words for my American and British readers

As foretold by many prophetic voices last year, or earlier, there’s been an acceleration in the prophetic, especially in what the Lord is doing to bring about His plans in the nations – ‘Lord, Your Kingdom,  let it come; Your will, let it be done on earth as it is in heaven’.

As with all prophetic words on this blog and elsewhere they are offered for your weighing with the Lord…

FOR THE USA

This morning in Australia Lana Vawser published “AMERICA, THIS IS THE DAY YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR – THIS IS YOUR DAY OF DESTINY!!!!”, saying ‘This is quite a lengthy word, but I feel it is very important for the United States right now.  I have been hearing the words over and over “America, this is the day you have been waiting for – this is your day of destiny!!!”….’ [Continue reading by clicking here.]

Veronika West’s latest is A WORD FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP!

“AND MANY WILL SAY OF HIM, ITS LIKE HE HAS LEGS OF LEAD AND NERVES OF STEEL FOR THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAS MADE HIM UNSHAKABLE AND IMMOVABLE IN THE MIDST OF GREAT TROUBLE AND TURMOIL”!

‘Today as I was driving to a prayer meeting singing away to a Worship CD when the Holy Spirit suddenly interrupted me with a very clear picture of Donald Trump..! As I looked at him I saw that he was surrounded by raging waters that were rising very quickly. However to my surprise he looked calm and peaceful, he seemed totally unperturbed, his face was fixed, focused and full of Hope and Expectation. The words, “GODS MAN WITH A PLAN” came to mind in that moment! As I looked again at him the waters continued to rise and rage roundabout him, then I saw something strange, it was as if his legs were being filled with lead and then I heard these words so clearly, “AND MANY WILL SAY OF HIM, ITS LIKE HE HAS LEGS OF LEAD AND NERVES OF STEEL, FOR THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAS MADE HIM UNSHAKABLE AND IMMOVABLE IN THE MIDST OF GREAT TROUBLE AND GREAT TURMOIL, NOW HE WILL LEAD THE NATION FORWARD INTO VICTORY AND WITH A NEW VISION EMPOWERED BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD, THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM, THE SPIRIT OF COUNSEL, THE SPIRIT OF MIGHT, THE SPIRIT OF UNDERSTANDING, THE SPIRIT KNOWLEDGE AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD”!

‘Then I saw President ELECT Donald Trump standing high upon a steep mountain side with his hands held high, his eyes fixed upon the heavens and his two feet deeply embedded into the rock-face of the mountain, the waters raged and the winds blew fiercely round about him but NOTHING COULD MOVE HIM!

‘Then I heard these words, “He lifted me out of a pit of confusion, above the rising waters, even out of the quicksand; and He placed my feet on a rock and established my steps”.’
