Six years ago today the internationally recognised prophet Bobby Conner brought the following prophetic words for the United Kingdom. We had heard him previously in Bath and were impressed his outstanding teaching is so well-grounded in the Bible.
Therefore, watching him live via God TV, his words deeply impacted my spirit and so I transcribed them later from God TV’s archive. After launching this blog I copied the notes into the Library on the Prophecies & Visions hub, and find they get regularly consulted.
- that, as with all prophecies, it needs to be weighed and tested against scripture, as well as being considered in the event of fulfilment in, for example, the current Welsh Outpouring. Also, controversial as it was, the Outpouring in Lakeland, Florida, is generally recognised as having been of God, albeit with a big mix of man. (This linked post offers an informed review of that earlier Outpouring.)
- Updates regarding the subsequent Bay of The Holy Spirit Revival and Welsh Outpouring.
Day 42 – 13 May 2008
The meeting’s emphasis upon healing and testimonies changed when Todd Bentley announced:
“Yesterday I had a phone call from a senior prophet of this nation…and he said, “Todd, Bob Jones and I are ready to come down to Florida. Can you please call us as to when you want us to come? In fact, sooner rather than later because we want to come tomorrow night.
“I knew in my spirit there’s something going on here!…There’s something about the two senior prophets in America – proven and versed in the Word – coming together. I knew that something would change in the revival, for I’ve known Bob through the years and we have such a connection that just his blessing tonight would release something in the Spirit.
“I believe they’re here tonight as two witnesses…Something in the spiritual atmosphere is about to change and you need to…hear what the Holy Spirit is saying and we’ll just let Him move…I’m going to bring Bob up but before that I know Bobby has some words for you…”
“This is the day of His power…This isn’t a time to be waffling, not a time to be waiting – this is a time to move into the very fire of God.
“God is up to something! The voice of the Lord spoke to me last night and here’s what He said,
“Tell the people to keep their focus on Jesus, moving ever closer to Him and I will see that this move is a quintessential move of God.”
“This move is a ‘quintessential move of God’… and quintessential means the most perfect embodiment of something…He’s going to bring this move to a point of maturity we’ve not seen before; and He called it ‘quintessential’…[one meaning is] removing impurities to bring to a place of maturity and perfection – that’s what God wants to do!
“Also, the Lord said to me that this very night we can eat the hidden manna…Revelation 2:17, “To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna”. We’re in a time right now when God will reveal sacred secrets and mystic mysteries. This is a time we can access the very heart of God and find out what God has planned for these days. And Todd is absolutely, totally 100% right. God is turning a page – going up another level, another level, not only in Lakeland but also all across the earth! – Another level !!
“Remember, just like Moses cried out in Exodus 33:18 “O Lord, show me your glory”. That’s what we’re after…we’re after the glory of God.
“Revelation 2:17…I want to be an overcomer. Don’t you? So there’s a time right now, according to Matthew 13:16 that you and I can see things and hear things and observe things and receive things that prior generations could not…we are a privileged people but with that privilege comes great responsibility. So, I want us to really seek the Lord with everything that’s within us: Jeremiah 29.13…you will find Him – God – when you seek for Him with all your heart.
“I’m telling you, there’s going to be a holy, unstoppable fire – a firestorm is going to come to the UK – I’m talking to you now Trevor (Baker): God says He’s going to send a firestorm to the UK. It won’t be stopped. It won’t be stopped. It’s going to rage, rage, rage!! God’s going to be bringing a firestorm! This is a night we need to be praying for the UK because God said,
“I’m going to start a firestorm!”
Bobby excitedly exhorted everyone,
“I’m tired of smoke. I want to see a fire – don’t you? And the Lord’s going to do it…Malachi 3:1 – the Lord whom you seek shall suddenly come to His temple. He’ll come like a refiner’s fire, a fuller’s soap. He’s going to come…
“I’m so excited…but I’m so tired of people not being excited about this. There’s an awesome, an awesome anointing here…God says, “I will pour water on those who are thirsty, floods upon dry ground”… and when we position ourselves God will pour out His Spirit…
“I hope none of us think, “I’ve seen that, been there, done that”. It’s wrong…to be blasé for this is a new, wonderful thing that God is doing – Isaiah 48:6 “See, I am doing a new thing.”. **
Bobby then blesses and calls for the fire on everyone. Todd invites Trevor Baker from Dudley, UK, onto stage and he says that Bobby had already known outpouring would break out in England (eg. the Come Up Here conference, Bath 2007 – RB’s note) He tells him it’s started and is in Ireland too. Bobby replies,
“This meeting will be one of the most explosive for it’s going to go everywhere! This move will be distilled – all impurities taken out. It will be distilled, not diluted – the further it goes the stronger it will get! It should be the other way round – but no! The further it goes the stronger it will get!”
After Trevor Baker gives an update Bobby and Bob lay hands on him and wham! – click to see video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOQoesM8hQ8
** Bobby quotes Isa 43:19 but his referral to Isa 48:6 is most apposite, which reads:
You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.
Day 53 – 24 May 2008
John & Carol Arnott present again and John told of two angels seen by the United Methodist scholar Scott McDermott who asked them, “What are you doing?”. He was told they’re going to those places that had revival, or were touched by revival, in 1990’s to bring it again – if it’s what they want! [NB. This is two years before the Holy Spirit’s brought God’s presence again to Pensacola-Mobile area.]
John spoke of 2Kings3:14-20 as being prophetic for this outpouring. Then, water for three kings’ troops had run out and the Lord told Elisha to have them dig trenches. Nowadays, this may be applied to the lack of any sign in the natural that revival is coming but, if you dig, then suddenly with no wind or rain in sight – water will come into all the network of ditches. That is, all areas that had contained the previous revivals would be re-activated and flowing with the river of God. [Note: this scripture had motivated the Ditchdigger Network of Churches in Reading, which had been involved with revival in South American nations in 1990s.]
Under a noticeably very strong, powerful anointing (heavier than I’ve previously seen on her) Carol referred to 2 Kings2:19-22 and asked the Lord to pour salt into these revival waters, to ensure that they’re cleansed of all past impurities and poison.
UPDATE May 2014 – this last point is worth noting in view of subsequent personal events in Todd’s life AND because a fresh move of healing came in July 2010 on the anniversary of the start of the Brownsville Revival. This became known as The Bay of The Holy Spirit Revival hosted by Rev John Kilpatrick in association with British healing evangelist Nathan Morris. [See The Bay website and tag on this blog, as well as tags for both men.]
Day 57 – 28 May 2008
Todd: “Something to happen tonight, for the first time, is a great birthing within the Church – the Lord is about to commission places, regions as ‘hubs of miracles’. God’s plan was for visitation at Jerusalem and is now to visit whole cities and regions with revival…Who’s here from Wales?”
Several people came on-stage and, whilst imparting the Holy Spirit, Todd declared, “The Great Welsh Revival” many times over one man. Others were from S Wales, one was told, “Take it all over the UK”, another man was from Wrexham.
“I believe the Lord is commissioning new healing wells of anointing in places all over the
