An International Dialogue

This blog by Dr Ruth Bancewicz turned up in my post today – so appropriately after yesterday’s church service. There, our guest worship leader and speaker, Canadian Heather Clark, referred to her deep interest in how modern science marvellously expands upon the Biblical glory of creation. Ruth’s two-part post is an interesting introduction to the dialogue between scientific and Christian communities:

Science and Belief

Michel Meynsbrughen, Michel Meynsbrughen,

This week’s post was first published on the BioLogos forum. I was invited to write something about my experience of science and faith internationally. So far, we have launched the Test of Faith resources in the UK, US, and Brazil, and they are being published in a number of other countries where we have set up collaborations with local groups. I have found that although each country has its own particular issues, there are a number of commonalities between Christians in this area.

Christianity is an international movement. Denominations, mission movements, and well-known writers or speakers can share new ideas quickly, and even more so today with air travel and the internet. For Evangelicals, Young Earth Creationism has travelled around the globe, but the other views that Christians hold have not always been explained. Discussions like the ones that are held at at BioLogos are not…

Confirmations of latest prophetic words on the UK

Hand Holding Puzzle Piece by Ponsulak

This piece wasn’t around when I tried completing that ‘invisible jigsaw’. It’s as though the Lord has added a fresh piece to enable us to start seeing the bigger picture.

And what’s just happened is extraordinary! (This may try you, but it’s true and I called Nina to witness what happened.) I wanted a fresh ‘puzzle picture’ for this post, one to convey my sense of what’s happened. So I searched database and soon spotted the above by Ponsulak. They have reasonable terms and conditions for using images freely and the application form requires an auto-generated security question to be completed to get the download. Most sites want a mix of letters and numbers to be copied but this one uses a short phrase, such as title of a rhyme, song or book.

What was this image’s security code?  It was “Greatest Story Ever Told” – AMAZING! (It’s the 1965 film on Jesus’ life.)  How highly appropriate. An Almighty L.O.L.!

Can we take that as confirmation? – even validation? – of the observations I’m about to make on Charles Shamp’s God’s glory will be on display this Spring (click to read):

1. “Shifting”

At the close of the introduction, my remark “…notice that, once again, a ‘major shift’ is spoken of” referred to what I’d already written about “a sifting and a sHifting”, as here, and an almost concurrent confirmation from John Kilpatrick.

At the close of teaching upon the Lord redefining His people, John brought a powerful word that concluded, “There is a SHIFTING going on RIGHT NOW. There is a TRUE SHIFTING going on right now, where God is going to…” (A Season of ‘Suddenlies’).

Charlie opens,

 Almost every major shift of reformation or revival started on these Island nations. [Later stating that…]

The Lord spoke to me that a major shift in the Spirit would come in the Spring and wells that were capped over would be opened once again.

2. Bridge Over ‘The Pond’

Endless Bridge by Evgeni DenevAlthough last October I’d heard him refer to a connection existing in spirit between Britain and the States, I’d was already aware of this operating between Sunday morning services locally and online in Alabama, as I’d blogged early in the New Year (see Bridge over ‘The Pond’).

So it’s good to read Charlie on this:

My love for Church history and the moves of the Spirit caused me to recognize that what took place within these nations directly affected America and the move of the Spirit in my nation. Although we are an ocean away, we are connected in the realm of the Spirit, and as the song of Heaven would arise over the UK, it would carry all the way to the shores of America and revival would begin to come forth in these United States.  (My emphasis)

3. Axe to the Church

In commenting upon my ideas about The Babylonian aspect to the Church’s ‘New Era’, Mark Maddock refers to what he believes came from Jesus: ‘The Axe Prayer’. Mark’s valuable reply dated 23rd March explains, “It deals with the spiritual curses which can affect most of the church and enables individuals or churches en-masse to be cut free from all Babylonian (= mystery religion etc) influences from the past. The lack of cutting these off the church is part of the reason for every revival eventually dying off and yet another deadly denomination being created…”.

Therefore, it’s interesting to note Charlie’s reference to an axe,

God is changing the waters from bitter to drinkable. New prophetic voices will come forth this year that will cause the axe head to float. There will be signs and wonders and prophets that will move with the government of God. They will decree a thing and it will be established!

He seems to refer to a different context, yet the significance lies not only as above but also upon John the Baptist’s declaration, as he goes on to say,

Men and woman, that up until this point no one had even known their names, will come with the word of the Lord and an axe will be in their hand to lay at the root of the religious tree. They will cut off the old system.

4. Earthquake – this is astonishing!

Four weeks ago today I mused upon Wild winds, flooding and an earthquake, especially whether or not they had a demonic origin. Now, I just happened upon a news item of an earthquake on 20th Feb, which I’d not heard about. As my spiritual antennae were up I wrote:

2102-EarthquakeONL_2829623aI’ve wondered what’s Lord’s view of, or influence upon, the severe storms and extensive deep flooding across England, with the west taking the brunt of the violence. Is it climate change? Are these events at all prophetic? There was even an earth-quake between Wales and Devon! Is it a sign of a Hebrews 12 ‘shaking’?

Not having caught up with my item about Charlie and thus totally unknown to him, Mark forwarded me yesterday an email from a lady in the ‘far north west’ who leads a prayer team in the North England, which reads in part (my emphases shown),

2014 word – Britain

I am sure many of you have already seen the prophetic word given to Charles Stamp in February that was published recently on the Elijah List. If you have not already read it then a copy is attached. What many of you may not realise is the significant prophetic timing of the release of this word.

It seems the Lord is speaking through a loud-hailer to His people this spring about streams flowing from the desert. When God says things more than once we must sit up and take note; we must also weigh and test the word and consider it in the wider context into which the message was spoken. We must do this in order to tease out the whole of its significance. So I would bring the reading of Charles Stamp’s word to
your attention in the following context.
Please weigh and test what I have to say for yourselves.

On 8th Feb 2012 we were in a group retreat on Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel. During this time the Lord gave a vision to two team members (one was an elder in a ‘modern’ church; the other was a retired Anglican vicar). They were in the dilapidated church on the island at the time when they saw the floor under the altar open up and then the whole of the altar and ‘stuff’ behind it, choir pews, reredos etc.
disappeared into the hole. The Lord then spoke to us through a part of the island on the western side called ‘earthquake’ that what had been seen in the spirit was a forthcoming ‘earthquake’ that would send a shock wave through the institutionalised church that would eventually
see a total collapse of all religious activities not founded on the Word and the Spirit and the original Hebraic foundations of the early church (N.B. by referring to Hebraic roots I am not advocating laying s grace and becoming Jews, merely to the original formation of the early church on its Hebraic foundation inherited from its forefathers). 

On Feb 21st this year there was a literal earthquake in the Bristol Channel just east of Lundy which some of those who had been on Lundy two years earlier saw as a prophetic sign that what we had seen in the spirit was about to be released on the earth. On that very same day Charles Stamp received his prophecy in Lowestoft. In it God refers to both the fall of the religious system and the release of the streams in
the desert.

…(much more) Signed S_W_

There’s a slight mix up as the BBC reported the quake on 20th Feb as having occurred at lunchtime, the day before the word came to Charles. Nevertheless, what he received is a fantastic confirmation of what the group on Lundy Island had received.


Stay awake! Excitingly awesome times are ahead…at long last, thank you Lord! And thanks go to Mark for these important contributions.

Also, couldn’t we consider that at least one unknown piece has now turned up for the gaps in my tentative jigsaw?

FCO Advisory Group Religious Belief Yesterday the Minister for Faith & Communities, Baroness Warsi chaired the first meeting of the Foreign Office group on Freedom of Religion or Belief . According to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) website, the group, which includes Mervyn Thomas, chief executive of Christian Solidarity Worldwide and Joel Edwards, the International Director Micah Challenge, is intended to advise FCO Ministers and staff on promoting and protecting the right to freedom of religion or belief worldwide. Referring to the meeting, Baroness Warsi gave this quote:

“Freedom of religion or belief is a personal priority for me. Across the world, people are being singled out and hounded out simply for the faith they follow or the beliefs they hold.

Charles Shamp: God’s glory will be on display in the UK

Charles_Brynn_Shamp_250px[1]We have been blessed with a couple of memorable visits by Charles Shamp, who engages his listeners with warm, long eye-contact thereby speaking one-to-one. It was fascinating for me because every time we locked eyeballs what he said was directly relevant to what had been on my mind – but much  more, each time it enabled me to gain fresh insights into those things!  Over the years I’ve encountered many anointed teachers but this Holy Spirit gifting is rare. 

Last Friday, Steve Shulz introduced a prophetic word Charles has received for the UK as follows:

It is true that many great revivals have had their genesis in the British Isles. I’ve been to several hotspots myself, including the place of the 1904 Welsh revival in Wales, and on the Isle of Lewis off the Coast of Scotland.

Being from the USA, it’s easy for us to see revivals only from our own viewpoint on our own land. But when we go out and about to visit famous birthplaces of God’s revivals, our hearts and minds are changed to see that God SO LOVED THE ENTIRE EARTH that He gave His Son JESUS.

Lord, send revival and awakening to Great Britain… And send it to our own lands as well!! Be encouraged and blessed by this word! Enjoy!

Here’s the full text, as published by Steve at Elijah List and notice that, once again, a ‘major shift’ is spoken of:

Prophetic Word for the UK: God’s Glory Will Be On Display This Spring

Church History in the UK

When we study the history of revival in the earth over the past several centuries, we can almost single handily point to the United Kingdom as a major hot spot and catalyst for what the Holy Spirit was doing at that time. Almost every major shift of reformation or revival started on these Island nations.

Whether we are discussing the First and Second Great Awakenings, or go further back and discuss the mystics and catholic miracle workers that walked the shores of England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales – God has always seemed to release the fresh movement of the Holy Spirit on these Islands that has gone on to affect the entire earth.

My love for Church history and the moves of the Spirit caused me to recognize that what took place within these nations directly affected America and the move of the Spirit in my nation.

Although we are an ocean away, we are connected in the realm of the Spirit, and as the song of Heaven would arise over the UK, it would carry all the way to the shores of America and revival would begin to come forth in these United States.

Over the past several years as I have been traveling into the UK to minister, my greatest hope and prayer has been that God would once again ignite these Islands with the wild fire of Heaven. From the moment that I first stepped into a meeting in the nation of Wales back in 2010, I could feel something fresh was being birthed in the Spirit, something organic, something that would turn the world upside down!

Intercession and Weeping

Several weeks ago as I was ministering in a series of meetings in England, with my good friend Munday Martin, God began to show up in the most powerful way, both within the nightly meetings as well as during the street outreach in the afternoon time.

There were nights where during our preaching, young people would come in off of the streets and walk to the front asking, “What must we do to be saved?” With no alter call or invitation for people to accept Jesus, they were coming to the alter to be born again. The harvest was just that ripe!

On Friday, February 21, as the team gathered for a time of fellowship, the Spirit of intercession came unexpectedly into our friend’s home. This was just hours before we were to travel into Lowestoft, the place of the English revival that took place in 1921. It was a revival that went for eighteen months that saw many people come to Christ. A Spirit of intercession came on the team and we all began to pray with fervency.

During that time I found myself on the floor weeping with such a heavy burden from the Lord for the UK. Just as spontaneous as the intercession, so too was a word of the Lord over England. What I have discovered is that what is often released as a mystery in the form of intercession and tongues (if we are faithful to wait upon the Lord), will be revealed as “revelation in prophecy” to show us the future plan of God in a nation so that we will be ready when it comes.

God’s Glory Will Be On Display This Spring

This was the word that came forth:

The wilderness and winter season in England is coming to an end and the people would sing with great joy as it comes. This barren land will once again celebrate and flowers will burst forth in spring, bursting into blossom like a symphony of song and color. God’s glory will be on display this spring.

“Those who have been weary will be strengthened in their knees. Those who were lame will leap with joy. Those who have been fearful will revive with courage. This is a season and time to take heart. God is coming in a fresh way.

The people will say, ‘God is here, right here, on His way to put things right in our nation. Yes He has come! He will save us!’ The blind eyes will be opened, deaf ears will hear once again. Those who felt they had no voice will break into a song that Heaven has come!

The Lord spoke to me that a major shift in the Spirit would come in the spring and wells that were capped over would be opened once again. I felt The Lord speak to me that there are springs of water that will burst out in the Springtime and fresh streams will flow.

It will spring up in the Spring! Watch for it! They will find natural springs in the Spring and this will be a sign of what God is doing in the Spirit. People are going to drink of natural springs and it will be a sign of a new prophetic movement in the nation.

God is changing the waters from bitter to drinkable. New prophetic voices will come forth this year that will cause the axe head to float. There will be signs and wonders and prophets that will move with the government of God. They will decree a thing and it will be established!

But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed. And the man of God said, “Where fell it?” And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim. Therefore said he, “Take it up to thee”. And he put out his hand, and took it. (2 Kings 6:5-7)

Overall, I believe that this word is for all of the United Kingdom and God will use England as a catalyst for revival that will spring into Scotland, Ireland, and Wales and eventually will touch the world. What was left unfulfilled in previous generations will be fulfilled in this one.

There will be voices that will come from the wilderness. Men and women, that up until this point no one had even known their names, will come with the word of the Lord and an axe will be in their hand to lay at the root of the religious tree. They will cut off the old system. The old religious roots that made the waters so bitter will go and there will be new trees planted in their stead.

These will be trees of righteousness. These will be trees for the healing of the nations. These will be trees for an awakening that will touch the nations!

I am greatly encouraged by what the Lord has shown me and I know we are on the verge of a fresh great awakening that will begin in England and the United Kingdom. Remember friends to take heart in this spring season. Heaven is at hand!

This is considered further in Confirmations of latest prophetic words for the UK.

Note: Charles and Brynn Shamp are the founders of DESTINY ENCOUNTERS. They have a true passion for revival and the glory of God. They boldly declare the Gospel of Christ; ministering freedom, joy, and supernatural healing everywhere they go. They have ministered both nationally and internationally with radical demonstrations of faith seeing lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit. Compelled by the heart of the Father to seek and save the lost, they are releasing God’s love to the world seeing the captives delivered, the sick healed, and lives changed. Charles and Brynn believe that through outreach, missions, and crusade evangelism one life changed can impact a nation and transform a generation. Charles and Brynn have answered the call to lead a generation in the movement of both the Word and the Spirit. With the power of an encounter they are truly unlocking a generation’s destiny one heart at a time.

The Importance of Purpose

Bill Sweeney’s recent lesson in patience over a similar situation really humbled me. About the same time I’d made a mistake whilst re-sizing partitions and prevented my pc booting. So I had several days’ bother rebuilding all its software – but it’s nothing compared to what Bill experienced – and it proves computers can be a tangible blessing for folk with ALS.

Unshakable Hope

In my last post I wrote that my eye-tracking computer crashed and I was without a computer for three weeks. I also mentioned that MDA was nice enough to lend me the computer I’m now using until I can obtain a replacement. As I said, I am very thankful to MDA for lending equipment and for everything else they do. This isn’t a complaint, it’s just a statement of fact; like me, this computer is old and extremely slow. It is so slow that technical support recommended that I not add any programs (I am typing this post as an email because I thought adding Microsoft Word might kill the computer). So having to learn the new system and having many other limitations has challenged my patience.

For “normal” people, having a broken computer for any period of time would be an inconvenience. But imagine how much more inconvenient that…

Gatekeepers! Watchmen! You are to speak out (The Lord has called you out to be Bold today)

This item is so appropriate in connection with how ardently Steve Hill warned the Church against replacing the Lord’s values with those of the world and falling for Satan’s lies and deception.

Ancient Paths

Gatekeepers have three primary roles
  1. To protect the Lord’s house.  This means they defend the gospel, the truth of the Word and Protect the holiness of God’s house. Their hearts are on fire with the Fear of the Lord. They want the Lord’s house to be a house of Prayer and they are not content until they see the Lord’s will come to place. The gatekeeper protects the House. They know the scriptures well and are full of understanding. They are bold to speak out against the sins of the church- even if it means they will be mocked, hated or even kicked out of the church. They stay close to the House of the Lord
  2. They keep the Lord’s people on the right path, keeping them from drifting from the Lord. As a staff or sheepdog would keep the sheep together from straying, so the role of gatekeeper is the same…

The Babylonian aspect of the Church’s ‘New Era’

This title is ‘puzzle’ theme number ‘8’, which I challenged readers to ascertain from an ‘invisible jigsaw’.

It refers to the dichotomy between the old and new elements within the full spectrum of the Church’s traditional, evangelical and charismatic styles. This ‘Babylonian aspect’ also means many churches and believers may not desire to move into the new era, or new season, prophesied in recent years – which is already happening. Note that ‘new’ is not what many secularists may surmise!

I trust all will become plain as I explain.

Also, we’ll find that a weekday conjecture was to become weekend confirmation!

‘Theme 8’ is inherent in the data, or stylised ‘jigsaw pieces’, of detailed prophetic words that were separately brought on opposite ‘sides of the pond’ by Dr Sharon Stone and Revd John Kilpatrick. Although I’d sensed it whilst musing upon An Invitation to the Threshing Floor it’s fitting for this theme to be logged with Paws 4 Thought because that’s when it opened up.  Also, as stated, those were very brief first thoughts for I was getting a sense of timing, a ‘kairos’ moment, from what Sharon brought. And that’s only to be expected with the gift of prophecy.

The ‘pause for thought’ gave some background about the priest Ezra because Sharon had opened by referring to the 4th chapter of his Old Testament book. On that Tuesday I’d read about Ezra in a primer on Hebrew and decided to share some information. In fact, upon reflecting upon the Threshing Floor Invitation, I had a sense of how what had happened in those days, over 2,500 years ago, is also applicable today!

It’s as though a gigantic cycle has gone around, not in a repetitive way but like a spiral. This allows for advancement through lessons learned and what’s to be achieved as well as the differences between the ancient Hebrews and modern Christians. I’m of the opinion time proceeds not in a linear fashion but like a slowly turning corkscrew that opens and closes events.

It all needed mulling over with the Lord. So I wrote a brief bit, intending to write more fully later. I nearly did so a couple of days later, the Thursday, but instead drafted thoughts on the perceived threads linking several topics I’d just blogged about.

Double Aspect to Ezra

Writing about Ezra’s major contribution in producing the early Bible, I was struck by his double relevance to today’s ‘new era’ for the Church. It seems directly related to the historic return of the people of God from captivity in Babylon to Jerusalem. Here’s Sharon’s opening words:

“In Ezra 4 we see a resistance to the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.  We have been in that “season of hindrance”. Thank God we are now coming out!

“There is a New Generation that is now leaving captivity into ruling with the manifestation of the power of God (signs and wonders).  Abraham, Issac and Jacob are the generations leaving captivity.  This is not just one age group…”

These words cover both aspects of ‘hindrance’ connected with the Exile. That of being deported and held in captivity, and that of being prevented from building when released home. Let’s take a brief historical detour.:

Towards the close of the Jews’ 70 years exile the Persian king Cyrus, conqueror of the Babylonian empire, was directly inspired by God to issue an edict. This permitted the exiles to return in 538 BC and rebuild the destroyed city and temple of Jerusalem.

The first returning group under Zerubbabel began work but, although started, rebuilding the Temple was delayed because of local opposition. It got under way when God raised up the prophetic ministries of Zecharia and Haggai to inspire and direct the work. NB: Ezra 5 clearly indicates the importance the Lord attaches to the prophetic office, and thus implies its fundamental necessity in this new era of the Church.

Almost 60 years after the first group, Ezra himself returned with the next lot to bring more funds and valuables from King Artaxerxes to enhance the Temple worship. Commissioned by the king, Ezra appointed leaders and he began a reforming spiritual leadership to re-establish the place of the Books and the Law, now written in a new alphabet.

So, Sharon opens our Invitation to the Threshing Floor for the anticipated harvest of souls by referring to believers having come out of a ‘season of hindrance’. This is corroborated by John Kilpatrick’s ‘video word’ on Redefinement, the first part of which is about believers being released from bondage! [This word came to him upon waking in mid-February and was published the Friday after my own musings.]

The Invitation continues, not with reference to the rebuilt Temple, but to its foundation over 400 years earlier!  This is to connect spiritually with the original site of the location of the altar for the first Temple built by David and Solomon.

Therefore, I submit there are two significant and gigantic spiritual ‘opposites’ in our invitation, both of which relate to Ezra’s foundational activity.

JERUSALEM: Ezra’s compiling existing books and writing them in a new alphabet signifies today’s necessity of a better appreciation of and deeper revelations into the canon of both Testaments (and perhaps even the Apocrypha?).

That is, we may expect a revelatory empowerment of Spirit and Word to manifest and not only re-invigorate the Church but also empower us to do what Jesus did, especially the ‘greater works’ He promised (John 14:12). This will be obvious to the ‘New Generation’ of believers, and necessarily so,

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.   [Hebrews 4:12]

This is clearly implicit to The Invitation because it doesn’t just dwell upon the rebuilding and renewing our belief at a much higher level.  It brings our focus right back to when the Lord instructed where the ‘Holy of Holies’ should be located – the threshing floor of the Jebusite Ornan on Mount Moriah, reputed to be where Abraham offered up Isaac. This is where king David was required to establish a house for His Presence.

Therefore, as the Jews went back to the centre of their belief and life, so too are Christians now required to go back to the very centre of ours – to Jesus and His Words. But more than that, in re-turning to Him in person it needs be devoid of Churchianity!  It also means we will have access to heavenly realms and see our Father as Jesus did.

It is a getting back to base: scripture and Saviour. Also, to preparing for when the Bride will be full of the Holy Spirit so the New Jerusalem will manifest on earth (Rev 21 and 22).

BABYLON: Many Jews remained in Babylonian territory because of their accustomed prosperity and the uncertain prospects in a poorer land, of which they probably had only dim memories. They weren’t slaves but had favour with the king and influence in the land. Is that not like too many modern church institutions and ministries?

They’re not fully focused upon the author and perfector of our faith, much less open to Holy Spirit’s presence. Some are even in bed with false doctrine and reprobate worldly values!

Consequently, I disagree with Bible scholars who interpret ‘Babylon the Great’ as meaning the Roman Catholic Church alone.

‘Babylon’ is synonymous with ‘confusion’ especially of a spiritual nature. Jane Hamon in The Cyrus Decree writes,

Every idolatrous system of this earth, every spirit of false religion, every occult form of power had its beginnings in Babylon. The city of Babylon was built upon the foundations of rebellion against God: pride, independence and humanism (the belief that man is God).

Therefore, the Babylonian aspect of the ‘new era’ in the Church’s history represents the world’s influence upon those parts of the wider church that have deserted their ‘first love’, Jesus Christ, and taken on board the non-values of a decadent and immoral society.

Consequently, the prophetic invitation to God’s Threshing Floor indicates a distinct winnowing, a sifting, a separating out of the ‘Babylonian’ church married as a spiritual adulteress to the world, and the Bridal ‘remnant’ who’s focussed upon Jesus.

Previous Prophecies

As recounted in 5 years Ago Today: the End-game is Now in Play, my first writing upon End-times referred to,

“my previous remarks about a sifting of the Church – in preparation for a rapid ‘sHifting’?”

So I had that in mind during my first reflections upon the Threshing Floor Invitation, as well as chapters 18 and 19 of The Apocalypse of John (Book of Revelation) foretelling the downfall of ‘Babylon the Great’, which is described as a ‘harlot’.

Also, I recalled that after launching the Prophecies hub of this blog I found a prophetic word from 1992 about that entity’s existence within the Church, as recounted by Colin Winfield in The Separation of the Bride and the Harlot.

Concluding Confirmation

The above musings were confirmed within days on the Sunday with what John Kilpatrick brought under a strong anointing. Teaching upon ‘Season of suddenlies’, he prophesied that God’s redefining of churches involves “a shifting“. This will result in a radical difference between the two kinds of believers and churches – in my terms, those in worldly ‘Babylon’ and the ‘New Era’ Spirit-led ‘remnant’.

That separation and shifting is happening NOW!

Theme 9

Details of this theme will follow soon. The blog listing shows it in parenthesis because it’s a very personal connection. Together with its proceeding blogs, I was amazed that it’s even more astonishing than the weird mix-up over the blog’s second anniversary.

Reading that Nov ’13 post and it’s follow up will prepare you for theme 9, but let me tease you to just wait a while…

There’s much to ponder deeply my friends.


Revisiting Colin Winfield’s website I noticed the latest; 2014 Consecration with an accompanying file Thoughts at the Beginning of 2014. The last is supportive of my contention above, as in the following which bear my emphases, but please read the whole piece for yourself:

‘As we look at that which goes by the name of ʻChurchʼ we cannot see many who are hearing the Lord, or if they are, they so often wrongly interpret what is being said, or apply to others what really is Godʼs word to themselves. Most are still following their traditions and what they have known in the past. Men still consider men to be their leaders when Jesus said that only Christ was to be their Leader. Man is following ʻmanʼ and not the Lord. The true sons, those who are led by the Spirit, are hard to find….

‘What is necessary is to move to higher ground and gain the life of Christ. It is not only that direct relationship with Jesus we need but also that close fellowship with our Heavenly Father….

‘The call is to come unto the Lord Jesus Christ and be separated unto Him, and Him alone. Let us flee to the mountain, that secure place of being hid in the very life and nature of the Lord Jesus Christ. The time has come for judgement to begin with the household of God. We are the temple of God (1Cor.3:16 and 2Cor. 6:16) and the Lord is already cleansing His temple

‘The warnings have been sounding for many years as Pentecost was coming to its end. But let us recognise the door has closed on that period of church history and let us look towards the soon coming Feast of Tabernacles, that place of fulness the whole Church must enter…’

PPS: If references to Jewish Feasts surprise you then I recommend learning about their relevance to the Church on Colin’s website or in John Kilpatrick’s four in-depth sessions on The Feasts of The Lord – Recognising God’s Appointed Times.

Parts of an ‘invisible jigsaw’ point to a bigger picture

In Enjoy puzzles?… I challenged readers to discover an eighth theme hidden within recent postings on this blog. The aim was to imagine these main themes as pieces of a jigsaw puzzle and to try to fit them together.

It was intellectual rather than a physical puzzle. Also, there was no design by which pieces could be matched and fitted together. Furthermore, they wouldn’t form into a complete mental picture because there’d probably be some gaps.

The idea was to develop discernment in considering the data within each piece’s ‘design’ as well as to appreciate the timing of their appearance – like perceiving and mentally handling chunks of information within an invisible matrix.

So, it was a trifle tricky but my intention was to convey a sensing of invisible links between those several blogs in order to get insights into the much bigger picture.

Anyway, here’s my own interpretation of how the puzzle could be started:

Blog Jigsaw

For information, jigsaw pieces as individual blogs are listed below with shorter titles and main themes underlined. Numbering assists seeing which is which (especially if the title isn’t obvious) and the connecting ‘lugs’ of each piece.:

My question is; to what could numbers 8 and 9 refer? The answer to the first follows in the next post.

Prophecy can involve teamwork

Now and again I’ve mused upon fulfillment of Biblical prophecy being similar to completing an immense ‘invisible jigsaw’, as may be read on the Jigsaw tag.

The Holy Bible is the design’s template and global events form the pieces which can be ‘seen’ falling into place. This concept in its finality is ably conveyed in Thanunkhorn’s image ‘Puzzle Globe and Book’, copied by courtesy of

A knowledge of scripture and personal revelation from the Holy Spirit helps born-again believers gain insights into how, when and where the pieces fall into place.

We also have the advantage of being able to have insights weighed, tested and confirmed by leaders who are not only blessed by Holy Spirit’s gift of prophecy but also have access to those recognised as authentic prophetical voices.

In view of the scriptural fact that even accurate prophets prophesy only in part (1 Cor13:9), their words are augmented by prophetic fellowship under the headship of Jesus Christ, whose ‘testimony is the spirit of prophecy’ (Rev 19:10).

So, prophetic data shared and insights gained through the above postings have all come through sanctified yet separate teamwork; in this instance they are William Smith, Paul Keith Davis, John Kilpatrick, Bob Jones, Arthur Burt, Jane Hamon, Sharon Stone and Emma Stark (as with the 8 pieces below! God-incidence?).

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of one of His saints

What could the Living Lord God be saying to us through the image of an angel beside evangelist Steve Hill’s coffin? (Previous post refers.)  Was it arranged for a purpose?

Does it not portray the truth of David’s Psalm 116, verse 15 of which is above, and which praises and thanks our sovereign God through deepest adversity?

steve-hill-portrait 2That psalm’s early verses refer to when ‘the cords of death entangled’ Steve a couple of years ago. That time the funeral arrangements had to be cancelled at the last minute in view of his remarkable recovery, which enabled him to fulfil his promise to evangelise Muslim extremists.

Also, Steve was able to deliver a grave warning to the Church to stop the avalanche of lies, false doctrines and apostasy, as reported on this blog here and here.  Thus, one could well believe there were both earthly and heavenly attendees witnessing the formal celebration of his most influential evangelist’s life.

We could expect that one of God’s generals be given an angelic escort home as well as be honoured by their presence at his memorial service.

But more than that – through the widespread availability of that amazing photo the Lord could be commanding us all to “Pay Attention!”.

Its existence could indicate that He who ‘opens and no one can shut, and shuts and no one can open’, has closed a door of revivalist repentance that was open to all and sundry through Steve’s ministry; but not just that…

Perhaps one chapter in Church history has now closed and another radically different one opens? Does the next chapter start where the sifting of the Bride from the harlot moves into its next phase?

This will be discussed in Friday’s post on the Babylonian aspect of the prophesied ‘New Era’ for the Church (click to read).

An angel attended Steve Hill’s memorial service

Pastor John Kilpatrick officiated at the memorial service for his very close friend and evangelist in the Brownsville Revival.  It was intriguing to hear what John said back at church yesterday morning about a young man who went to Steve’s funeral with one of the CHP congregation.

1622747_10153898534210532_566145841_nThe man was trying to take a photo from the balcony but couldn’t understand why he was unable to see the feet of people on-stage.  Even so, he tried shooting it without any adjustment or extra lens. When he saw the photo the reason for the blur became clear because it shows an unseen guest near Steve’s dear widow, Jeri Hill.

(Click to enlarge photo – with many thanks to the unknown photographer for releasing this awe-inspiring image.)

John’s brief account begins at 1:08:00 of this video and I recommend listening for the next 10 minutes as he recounts what the Lord gave him prior to Steve’s passing. I believe there is a great deal more significance to what he relates than meets the eye.

The next post considers a possible motive of the Lord in facilitating this amazing photo.

Enjoy puzzles? Then try this ‘invisible jigsaw’!

Stretch your intellect and imagination to complete this jigsaw. Although invisible it’s not imaginary, because its material content really exists.

Divine data downloads as gently as snowflakes. As insights, or revelatory notions that drop into mind, they seem independent until sticking together like flakes. In fact, they get plugged in, a switch is thrown, the connection made and my inner light bulb starts flashing!

Then I perceive they’re really like jigsaw pieces.  Each fits somehow, somewhere, into an invisible jigsaw puzzle, the overall design of which is beyond my ‘ken’.  Last week’s  downloads do fit snuggly together!  Someone looking over my shoulder whispers what sequence I’m to slot them together. Only as I do that, like moving in faith, does a new, unseen design start to appear. I could almost handle it and discover its intricacies…

The challenge

Would you like to try this puzzle? It’s not as complicated as may seem at first. As in a ‘whodunnit’, clues need to be assessed to identify actors, locations, sequences of activities and inks before a crime mystery can be solved.

We’re avid fans of the tv series Death in Paradise set in the Caribbean. The climax always features Detective Inspector Goodman puzzling over the many clues garnered from investigations, as shown on the team’s whiteboard. Each episode, he stares for ages until getting a flash of inspiration on how the invisible threads link every piece together and solves the puzzle. He tests his theory by confronting suspects and the unequivocal solution enables the criminal’s arrest.

Shall we tackle our ‘invisible jigsaw’?

The Jigsaw Pieces

Our novel jigsaw is like a tapestry but we can’t see the design from our perspective underneath the fabric. We can see differently coloured threads and sewing according to instructions we grasp only that part of the tapestry in our hands. Yet it’s not impossible to guess the eventual design that’s being created.

In our jigsaw each piece displays information upon one or more obvious themes. These pieces are recent posts on this blog, as listed below with shorter titles and main themes underlined. Numbering helps us to see them (especially if the title isn’t obvious) and the connecting ‘lugs’ of the pieces.:

Like any pictorial jigsaw, we can fit most matching pieces together. First, we select the single numbers and put them down. Next, pieces with two numbers, or two lots of data and, where possible, we can connect one cluster with another and leave them on the ‘board’. As with a real jigsaw puzzle we see pieces that have bits of an image, fit them together and then connect with other images. It may help by drawing your own Venn, or ‘bubble’, diagram showing logical relationships.

Please note, we won’t get a completed jigsaw in this exercise, just joined pieces. Were we to look at previous posts we’d get more clusters joining up.

Can you see how we can fit them together? For example 2’s are about Bob Jones, 3’s and 4’s about Jesus and His Bride, 5’s about the recent flooding, etc..

But what does ‘8’ represent?  Can you solve that from the puzzle? If so, then please comment below. (Regret no prize other than that of satisfaction.)

The answer is hinted at in Paws 4 Thought and links what downloaded last week, like the pieces dropping out of the sky as illustrated above. In my opinion, it’s to do with the link between Dr Stone’s words about the threshing floor and an aspect of the new season the Church is moving into. But what, or who, is it?

See Parts of an ‘Invisible Jigsaw’ Point to a Bigger Picture for my illustrated solution to the above ‘puzzle’

Some may say it’s contrived to claim connections, or I’ve published selected material in a way that lends itself to being linked!  Let me assure you that, much as I prefer to write posts in an orderly manner, what’s in the pipeline often gets delayed because topical events are more relevant for publication, as on this occasion. I couldn’t get this item out in time for close-down last weekend. Nevertheless, what happened over that weekend was also to prove a piece of this ‘invisible jigsaw’!

It’s all like an open door, or rather a time-tunnel connecting a Biblical template with what’s soon to happen.  But just what is that template? More about that soon…and hope it’s not too big a tease?

Also, I will reveal how the unknown theme ‘9’ relates to the invisible hand behind our invisible jigsaw.

I trust that ‘grasping’ this puzzle’s pieces will develope a discernment of likely, hidden links between events.

Thank you

James Hughes knew nothing of my week-old plans on this puzzle but I’m grateful to him for unwittingly confirming that intention. I gave him a draft hardcopy of John Kilpatrick’s prophetic words and he said it’s all “like a jigsaw”. I laughed and confided my attempt at describing an invisible jigsaw in another item, to which he responded with 1 Corinthians 13 verse 9:

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away…13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. [NKJV per BibleGateway]

“It absolutely blew me away” – the power of prayer spaces in schools

God and Politics in the UK

Prayer Spaces in Schools Regular readers of this blog will know that I work in an education establishment and over the last few years since qualifying as a teacher I’ve seen time for anything other than academic work squeezed out bit by bit. My colleagues who have been teaching for a lot longer than I have tell of the days when there was time to bond as a school community and students were able to try out a whole range of activities and better themselves in ways far beyond learning to jump through hoops in order to acquire a set of grades that will bump their school up the league tables. These days, certainly beyond primary level, schools are little more than exam factories where there is scant time to learn the soft skills such as communication, leadership and creative thinking that are so important in the real world of life.

On his first state visit to Israel, British Prime Minister David Cameron today told the Knesset he has Jewish roots, including a relative who wrote the first Yiddish novel, and vowed that Britain would always stand as a friend to Israel and the Jewish people.

He spoke out strongly against international efforts to delegitimize Israel, and warned that Iran’s government is a “despotic regime” with “nuclear intentions.” He vowed to work with all in the region to help make peace while standing firmly behind Israel’s right and need for security.

“You have a British prime minister whose belief in Israel is unbreakable and whose commitment to Israel’s security will always be rock-solid,” Cameron said.

“A Season of Suddenlies” – AND a shifting!

This is exciting – yet a tad frustrating!!

Frustrating because what I’d drafted for this week needed postponing in view of other material for immediate publication. Yet exciting because what I was going to write on a dimension behind what Dr Stone said on the Lord’s invitation to the threshing floor links into what we heard on Sunday!  And it was delivered as a clearly prophetic statement!

In addition, there’s indirect support for a supposition made when I started writing.

So, it’s extremely exciting yet frustrating because things are happening so rapidly. As John stressed, the Lord is working very fast – we can so easily miss what He’s doing. 

It’s hard to keep up and to write in the available time slots. In fact, my intention to share quick notes on John Kilpatrick’s teaching upon the ‘Redefinement’ word got held up for I needed to check some bits against the archived Sunday service. CHP are quick do that but it seems news of Steve Hill’s passing took precedence. The the video came online a little later in the day but there was a technical hitch that needed my referral to a friend on staff there.

I trust that you may have grasped there’s a significance to what follows and take time not only to read but also to watch the pastor’s exceptional teaching. First and if you’re still with me, and even disagree, here’s what I wrote awaiting the archived video:

UK & US Sunday services

JohnK 214_logoIn Sunday morning’s service at Church of His Presence pastor John Kilpatrick reported how, whilst awakening from sleep in Texas last month, the Lord gave notice of what He will be doing during the next three months.  In ‘100 days of Redefinement’ this seems to be specifically for CHP and cities, but it is definitely applicable to ALL churches.

With reference to that word’s mention of Jesus’ disciple Simon being renamed as Peter, John emphasised he wasn’t the only one whose identity was re-moulded and became renewed. Ordinarily, we refer to many in the New Testament as being healed by Jesus or the apostles, as though that defined their lives. But, in fact, the effect of God’s direct work upon them completely ‘re-defined’ and transformed them from that moment on. So Peter could accomplish what God intended, which he wouldn’t have been able to as ‘Simon’, so too for Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Paul.

In this respect, pastor was re-iterating what we’d heard that same morning in church in UK – seems it’s the ‘Bridge Over The Pond’ effect once again!  Our minister taught in depth on ‘Transformation’ and being merged IN Christ, and included some words of wisdom from Paul Keith Davis. Our aim should be to be holy and become like Him.

Paul Keith is of the opinion that the Lord comes to bless and anoint what’s like Him. So, His power and presence finds a platform in people who focus upon Him and His holy character to the exclusion of all else and “He anoints His nature”.

Therefore, in assessing John’s gift of bringing words from the Living God it’s helpful to be aware that the Lord has used him to host two major moves of revival in repentance and in healing.

[Next, with the video available to check and expand my jottings on John’s explanation of ‘Redefinement’ I found it more important to transcribe these prophetic words. In fact, the pastor wants to go on the record for what he’s conveyed, as below.]

Under the Holy Spirit’s unction

With this in mind we need to note Pastor John Kilpatrick’s summary to his detailed discourse upon ‘Redefinement’, its ‘Season of Suddenlies’ and what God is now about to do in the earth. Pointing to Isaiah 28:21 on-screen (is shown below) he states:

“The Holy Spirit says that we are entering into a season where God is going to resort to strange works and strange acts to show the nations of the world He’s still in charge…He’s still in charge.

“And trust me on this, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Holy Spirit told me back in 2009, you remember – He gave me the word ‘R.e.s.u.r.r.e.c.t.i.o.n.’ and one of the words (within that) was that there’s going to be signs in the heavens and there’s been many of them; you can go to the internet and check them out and see what’s happening in the heavens – much of it hasn’t been reported..

“We’re entering into a season right now…where these ‘strange works’ and ‘strange acts’ have to do with the planetary system and to do with the universe.

“The time is going to come when Israel’s going to be assailed from all sides. You know as well as I do that the Bible clearly predicts in Ezekiel 38 and 39 that Russia is going to come against Israel and invade Israel…and in the very week that we’re talking about cutting our army and armed forces down to the smallest army since before WWII…

“And what God is about to do in regard to Israel, I can’t tell you everything because I don’t have the full picture…but I do know the other day the Holy Spirit said to me:

“Don’t minimise that scripture about My strange acts and my strange works!”

“Don’t minimise that because God said,

“I will pull out all stops to show that I AM the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I will pull out all stops to let the world know that I swore to Abraham this land, and anybody that fools with what I swore to by Myself will have to pay the consequences.”

“So let me just speak this out. I speak that in the near future the nations on earth will see on television, and by other means, God’s strange works and His strange acts. Trust me on this. It’s coming and there’s nothing a soul in the world can do about it.

“It’s past men’s ability to touch it and to do anything about it, but God is going to be glorified. There will come a day when people entering their churches, [of whatever denomination], when people walk across the threshold…they’ll be shaking and trembling knowing what God is about to do, and what He’s already done on the earth. They’ll know there’s a real God and there’s going to come a holy fear upon people like they’ve never seen before!

“There’ll be a brand new respect – hear me! – there’ll be a brand new respect for God and for the Holy Spirit unlike anything the Church has ever seen…

“I’m not going to say this or that’s going to happen in the next 100 days but God is getting ready to redefine His Church and He’s getting ready for us to get ready to see what we’ve never seen in our lifetime…”

John returns to the examples of Biblical leaders whom God had redefined in order to serve His purposes fully, and then prophesies how this applies to churches.:

“It’s going to happen, going to work both ways with churches – listen…

“There are churches that are really ‘a remnant’, and they’re really God-fearing. They really love Jesus and really are focused upon the End-Times and the coming of Christ, and they really want to serve God…God’s going to redefine those churches so they’re going to become more powerful than they’ve ever become –

“BUT there’s also going to be other churches that have ‘left their first love’ and they’ve gone the way of the world – and they’re going to have their ‘candlestick’ removed. They’re going to be redefined and the way they’re going to be redefined is: they’re NOT anywhere going to be ready for the soon coming of Jesus Christ!

“There is a SHIFTING going on RIGHT NOW. There is a TRUE SHIFTING going on right now, where God is going to redefine ‘the remnant’ into another thing and He’s going to take the wordly, compromising, so-called church and He’s going to redefine them and they won’t be able to come into what God’s got for them! It will be like, and as real as, removing a candlestick from a candlebra.

“So that’s the word that the Lord sent me here to give today…”

That final point is very interesting confirmation of what I suggested in an email 5 years ago about the End-game coming into play with ‘a sifting of the Church’ turning into ‘a sHifting’!  Thank you Lord.


For  scriptural authority for the concept of God’s surprise action, John quoted Acts 2:2 and 1 Corinthians 15 where the Church was founded suddenly and where it will be ‘taken’ suddenly. Also Romans 9:28

For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because  a short work the Lord will make upon the earth,

as well as Isaiah 10:26 and especially 28:21, where God speaks of doing things very quickly:

For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. [From KJV. The  NKJV renders the last as ‘His awesome work…His unusual act’ and notes ‘unusual’ literally means ‘foreign’!]


These meagre notes cannot do justice to exceptional teaching under a strong unction of the Holy Spirit.  There were at least a couple of times other than quoted above when John spoke very prophetically. For example:

In the season that we’re entering into the Lord says, “I’m going to cut things short”. The Bible says He’s going to cut the days short. I don’t think that you and I here today can comprehend what I’m really saying, because I can’t… Just listen carefully – we don’t realise how fast God’s going to speed things up and expedite things!  It will happen so fast you won’t even have time to praise Him!

Therefore, this teaching is well worth attentive study, starting at 1:32:25 of this video, Season of Suddenlies. From the offset he stresses the importance of this being a ‘kairos’ moment or ‘now’ word.

Also, note that 5 years ago the Lord told my fellow watcher to be aware of what Russia  gets up to, as well as other matters.  Read those very brief details from CHP downloads link by selecting ‘R.E.S.U.R.R.E.C.T.I.O.N. – a prophetic insight for the future’.

May you be mightily blessed…

Revd John Kilpatrick: God is re-defining His people

The next post will have notes taken from the pastor’s teaching upon this important yet brief prophetic word.

The first remark about believers “being bound” harmonises with Dr Sharon Stone’s first words upon an Invitation to the Threshing Floor referring to “a season of hindrance”, from which “a new generation is leaving captivity to rule with manifestation of the power of God”.

Pensacola Memorial Service for Steve Hill


Click image for link to details on Church of His Presence website. Note that 7PM is US’ Central Daylight Saving Time, currently 5 hours behind UK’s GMT.

This personal tribute from British author and preacher John Peters is appended to my previous post:

How right to describe Steve Hill as one of God’s generals. I shall never forget him preaching at Pensacola. It was biblical, passionate and deeply challenging.

Evangelist Steve Hill has passed into the glory

Yesterday another of God’s indomitable generals was promoted to the heavenly host. As with another general, Bob Jones, Steve had previously triumphed over death but is now with the Captain of the Lord’s Hosts.

The following notice appears on his ministry’s associated website, From the Frontlines

‘Sunday March 9 we lost one of God’s Generals.  Steve Hill passed on to his eternal home after a decade long battle with Melanoma.

‘Steve was best known as the evangelist during the Brownsville Revival that took place from 1995 – 2000 in Pensacola, Fl.  It is estimated that over 4 million people from around the world attended the services and more than 150,000 people made decisions for Christ at the altars.

‘Dr Michael Brown who labored alongside Steve during the revival posted to his Facebook on Sunday,

A dear friend, a tireless soldier for the Lord, and the most passionate soul-winner I have ever known. May we live lives worthy of the legacy he left behind, and may God’s grace flood dear Jeri and the kids at this time of terrible loss. And may all those who were saved or delivered or renewed through his ministry rise up and stand tall for Jesus.

‘After Brownsville, Hill and his evangelistic team continued to hold arena and stadium crusades around the world.

‘Hill also founded and served as senior pastor, along with is wife Jeri, of Heartland World Ministries Church in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Hill founded Heartland School of Ministry, a soul-winning, presence-driven ministry school.

‘His latest endeavors included several websites that focused on reaching lost souls across the world and placing a spotlight on the frontlines of Christianity.

‘Daniel Norris who worked along side as an evangelist and co-host of a show called From the Frontlines posted,

The earth feels significantly lighter today as one of God’s Generals, who carried such spiritual weight has exited this life and entered the next. There is a void to be filled. So much work to be done. We have no time to waste! Let us also fix our eyes on the finishing line and run the rest of this race with everything we have in us. Heaven is depending on you and the world is in need of you!’

In Memoriam:

Readers may wish to read a couple of earlier articles by/about Steve on this blog:

Another fulfilment of the Obama prophecy

In view of the popularity of prophecies on President Obama and Israeli PM Netanyahu,  readers will be interested in the following.:

Details have emerged today revealing close operational collaboration for the first time in 4 years between US and Israeli intelligence and military agencies against an Iranian military target. Although this may surprise media pundits and well-informed experts alike, it is confirmation once again of the accuracy of Wendy Alec’s word and prayer request for Barack Obama from the Lord Himself.  In response to our intercession He promised:

…That we will see a change in the direction of the White House –

That we will see a change – a transformation even of policies –

And it will be My Hand that has wrought this change says the Lord.

Today’s Debka Special Report on the naval operation refers to America’s questionable diplomatic approach to Iran’s bellicose regime :

Until now, the Obama administration steadfastly refused to act against Iran for fear of jeopardizing the international diplomatic track for curbing its nuclear program.
The unusual frankness with which the Obama administration announced its coordination with Israel is both dramatic in itself and a road sign pointing the way to a radical change in its Iran policy. The US and Israel appear to be lining up – in their military policies as well – against the Iranian-Syrian-Hizballah bloc…

UN Sep12 NET-OBAMA1_13jpgThe seizure of an Iranian ship’s secret cargo of missiles bound for Gaza is no doubt one of the factors behind recent cordial meetings in Washington between Obama and Netanyahu. Debka report continues,

This radical turnabout was most probably the high point of the conversation between the US president and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the White House Monday, March 3, after which Netanyahu raised comment by showering Obama with praise during his speech to the AIPAC conference in Washington the next day.

It’s all too predictable that mainstream media, being anti-Israel, will succumb to any Iranian smokescreen and be beguiled into repeating their disingenuous diatribe.

A clarification from Arthur Burt’s daughter

See photos of Arthur’s Centenary Celebration on Mary’s website – Arthur went home to the Lord on Thursday 28th August aged 102 years (post updated 1st Sept)

Further to recent items about Bob Jones and Arthur Burt I’m grateful to Mark Maddock’s contribution on my post about a likely cause of our storms. He gives a clarification and proviso from Arthur’s daughter, Mary, on the date and origin of the prophecy attributed to her father. It is copied below for readers’ information together with my remarks.:

If you’ve not yet checked what Arthur wrote, then read the ‘No Ebb’ prophecy first, as on Billye Brims’ site rather than Kathie Walters’ longer account relating to Bob Jones.

One of Mark’s friends who knows Mary contacted her to ask about the details and then informed Mark, who comments as follows:

Here is an excerpt of her reply; the key factual point to note is that the prophecy was given in 1937… thus there is no direct link with Bob Jones’ birth year (1930):

“… The prophecy is correct, however he did not give it but has carried it.
The prophecy was spoken by someone else in a meeting in 1937 and it so moved him that dad grabbed hold of it. He has kept it alive all these years.
I am glad you emailed about it. But we must remember that the interpretation belongs to God. Many have made assumptions, Bob Jones talked about it, but we must hold these things lightly.
I once saw a documentary shortly after the Afghanistan war where in Kandahar the landmines that were still buried were the cause of many children and adults losing arms and legs. In the documentary they showed a helicopter literally dropping arms and legs to the ground. You could see them in plastic bags. It reminded me of the prophecy.”

Thank you Mary. (She ministers through Word and Spirit Intl Ministries, which may be found at’)

The reference to ‘arms and legs’ in the prophecy may indicate something about the time in which it’s scheduled for fulfilment.  Also, perhaps someone familiar with those details would actually see body parts coming down out of the sky and thereby realise the direct relevance to the prophecy. That is, it would as a physical sign of approaching fulfilment. (It reminds me of a dream in which I saw how the Kingdom is being set up on earth, and which connected in the spirit with Bill Johnson’s 2011 word for Britain – see Father, let Your Kingdom come).

Alternatively or in addition, of course, that odd reference may mean miraculous healing of limbs will be a major feature of this coming revival.


Now for a look at a funny side of the past fortnight’s deluge of ‘divine data’, of which this is only one bit…

In writing about a trio of prophetical prompts I implied it was 40 years from the date of Arthur Burt’s note as in Billye Brim’s reference to 1934 to that of David Minor’s Two Winds, both of which I’d inserted in my Library.

The next day, in shock I took stock! My quick mental maths were wrong!

“No!” – it’s about 50 years between Arthur’s and David’s of 1987. I was about to amend 40 to 50 but realised the correct connection, and issued a clarification. It was like how my mind had been muddled in a Godly way over the dates and news on the blog’s 2nd anniversary and what provoked my interest over 25 years ago, as noted here.  It’s not like me to get my sums wrong!

NOW, with Mary’s more authoritative date of 1937 the 50 years difference to the ‘Two Winds’ prophetic words has not only turned up again but also shows I WAS right to suspect a link. In clarifying the date it ratifies my notion that a subtle link may exist – so maybe we should consider these prophecies more deeply?

The tornado forces of that First Wind could be like what’s happened since October’s St Jude’s Day Storm, and then onwards from December and New Year’s extreme, record-breaking lowest pressure, known as ‘explosive deepenings’, or ‘weather bombs’ (USA). Almost hurricane force winds, frequent heavy rains and horizon-to-horizon flooding until last week makes it officially the ‘Wettest Winter’ in nearly 250 years.

Please note I’m not promoting any sort of numerical theory. Just noting the facts, and the coincidence. Or, is it ‘God-incidence’?

Is the Lord trying to get our attention and telling us there’s something very important?

“Take note, My children!”

The Lion roars!

SOMETHING’S GOING ON!   Did I remark, “I’m never surprised by what the Lord does”?

On Monday I decided to blog briefly about the Lion of Judah. On the same morning, Dr Mike Evans wrote the following email about that same attribute of the Lord:

The Lion’s Roar

“As a lion roars…so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will deliver it. Passing over, He will preserve it” (Isaiah 31:4-5).

As I read this scripture this morning, my heart leapt with joy. That is precisely what I have been doing for almost 47 years—defending Jerusalem. I have stood up to terrorists face to face, men such as Yasser Arafat, whom I confronted at the 43rd General Assembly of the United Nations. I’ve stood up to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former president of Iran, face to face in New York City at the United Nations.

For 33 years I have been writing books in defense of Israel. I have just completed my 41st book. We have also produced 18 television documentaries in defense of Israel. The Corrie ten Boom Holocaust Center in Haarlem, Holland has been part of our ministry since 1987 when we purchased it and restored it. I have served as chairman of the board since that time. Thanks to the Jerusalem Prayer Team, no one has ever had to pay a dime to visit the museum since it opened to the public in 1988….

“I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee. And in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3). “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper  that love thee” (Psalm 122:6).

Israel is God’s dream. We are called to be part of His team. The title deed belongs to God Almighty. When God made His eternal promise to Israel, there was no United Nations, only pagan nations to challenge that dream and to challenge God and His Word. To be apathetic towards God’s Divine plan and eternal purpose as a Christian means to reject the Great Commission: “…you shall be a witness unto me in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria…” (Acts 1:8). God’s prophetic time clock is set on Jerusalem time. The spotlight of Heaven is still on Jerusalem. It all began there, and it will all end there.

Jerusalem is the only city for which God commands us to pray and commands a blessing on those who do. The Jerusalem Prayer Team is the largest intercessory movement in the world for the Jewish People and the city of Jerusalem. It is our Divine commission to bless the Jewish People.

Jesus said, “…truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine [The Jews], you did for me” (Matthew 25:40). I can hear the Lion of the Tribe of Judah roaring. (RB’s emphasis)

May the powers of hell hear the roar of God’s people today—You—declaring that the “people who do know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits” (Daniel 11:32). We will defend, deliver, and preserve Jerusalem. The greatest battle on earth is being fought from the Holy City of Jerusalem, according to Isaiah 14, where Satan is battling. All roads lead to Jerusalem. Heaven and earth met in Jerusalem and will meet there again.
