On the vision of a crown over England

A week ago today in Tucson, Arizona, Tony Puccio had a vision of a crown hovering over England. It was covered with what looked like diamonds and light was radiating from the crown and illuminating the nation, as reported in this post: England.

MajestyI guess what he saw may have been like this card created by a dear friend for a Christmas breakfast last year at which Nina spoke about majesty.

What Tony did not know about last week, however, was that my wife had again delivered that message at a breakfast only a few days earlier, the Tuesday morning.

Should you wish to be uplifted, you may read her earlier version here: On the Majesty of His Majesty,  The King of Kings.

It’s yet another example of Holy Spirit’s Bridge over ‘the Pond’, is it not? What’s that? I suggest searching that term on this blog (app won’t insert links).

The Glory of God rising

www-St-Takla-org--The-Ark-of-the-CovenantThen the glory of the LORD rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the LORD. (Ezekiel 10:4)

Today’s ‘Lion Bite’, or daily prophetic word from Glasgow Prophetic Centre, reads:

The radiance of the glory of the Lord is shining upon those who fear Him and look up to see Him, like the rays of the morning sun, casting His glorious light across their faces.
The Sun of Righteousness rises!

“These are the days of the increase of my glory in your life”, says the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Come and rejoice; come and share in my glory; bask in my light; dance and celebrate; give thanks to the Lord.”

Choose to behave and act like a glory-reflecting child of a glorious God. Allow yourself to be transformed by the revelation that …all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Daily, hourly, minute-by-minute – remember this and dwell on this – you are a glory-reflecting child of a glorious God!

He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Thess 2:14)

Extraordinary!  It echoes what was said about the Smith-Wigglesworth vision at yesterday’s home fellowship. His prophetic word concludes,

“When the new church phase is on the wane, there will be evidence in the churches of something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the Word and those with an emphasis on the Spirit. When the Word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest move of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed, the world has ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and Welsh revivals of former years. The outpouring of God’s Spirit will flow over from the United Kingdom to mainland Europe, and from there, will begin a missionary move to the ends of the earth.”

One of our leaders explained to our visitors that the dual-aspect of Word and Spirit will combine like the action of the pair of cherubim’s wings bowing over the mercy-seat on the Ark of the Covenant. Their wing-tips formed an arc that sparked, from which God’s  Glory manifested above and around the mercy-seat.

Church On The Move

This update of a vision received by Tony comes in tandem with that of England, and echoes our congregation’s insights into the glory covering. I recall John 14:23, “If anyone loves Me he will obey My teaching. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place – Amp) with him“.

My Dreams and Visions

Some may or may not remember the following vision I posted a few years back.

When the Lord gave Moses instructions on building an altar using stones, he gave the following command. Exo 20:25 And if you will make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone, for if you lift up a tool upon it you have polluted it. The Israelites were to take the stones as they found them and not to alter them in any way. This was a shadow of what the Lord had in mind as we will see in 1Pe 2:5 [Come] and, like living stones, be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ. We come to the Lord just as we are and it is for…

Library updated – Resurrection coming to Anglican Church

This blog’s Prophecies and Visions hub is updated with all recent material now listed on the Library and A New Era for The Church pages.

Puzzle in sky - Idea go

A week ago today, two uplifting prophetic indications of what the Lord’s doing in the Church of England were received by two of my friends, who don’t know one another and were many miles apart – it’s exciting, most important news!

‘A’ shared on Sunday that the previous Friday’s prayer time at the Fflad-y-Brenin retreat centre in Wales didn’t go quite as planned!  The morning prayer time got overshadowed by the Lord, who reminded them of the raising of Lazarus. They were told He’s going to call the Anglican Church out of its grave and bring it back to life!

[Note: for further consideration of the preceding and of comments below read here.]

That same day was the start of a residential weekend for training in the ministry for 100 or more, including ‘B’ who works in a London church. That first evening he received the following vision whilst in prayer.:

I saw the nation like a city on fire, and pastors throwing buckets of water on the fire to put it out but unsuccessfully. Then a floor of water springs up, dampens and defeats the fire. This water is the Gospel.

“Let the gospel be the gospel. Join in with what I’m doing.

“I am about to show you where I’ve been at work unseen for years. All over the land where I have been brooding over the expanse and the chaos. The time is coming. Stand with the rising waters and make a splash; declare against dismay that the water is from me for the healing of your lives in the land I have called to my own.”

The water rises.

“Proclaim to the water, ‘’Rise”

and to the city, “Repent”  (turn around, redemption is here)

and to the people, “Live”!

“I will bring life.

“My life is not even threatened by the fire. I have been holding off to see my church faithful, but (is) confused and distorted, I now show grace. I AM faithful.

“The waters will rise.”

Observations

This is exceptionally encouraging in view of the prophetic slant of my recent posts, as though more pieces of the ‘invisible jigsaw’ are falling into place!

‘B’ confirmed the fire across the nation is one from hell, and thus of a different nature to the holy fires mentioned in my recent blogs.

The reference to water welling up has similarities to the 1937 vision noted by Arthur Burt, as in this blog’s On wild winds, floodings and earthquake and next post about Bob Jones on the timing of that vision’s fulfilment.

It also connects into what Charlie Shamp prophesied in February about fresh springs and streams of water arising and the Lord displaying His glory in England this Spring.

The Lord’s remarks about brooding over the expanse of land and chaos and wanting His waters to arise so that He can heal the land, are close to Charlie’s teaching on how the Lord created and how His glory is going to manifest in signs and wonders.

‘B’ shared his thoughts on the vision:

“It’s all deeply entwined with the work of the Spirit. The pastors are no longer to use the Holy Spirit only as a resource in their reacting to particular situations, but to see the work of the Spirit all around them and to join in. One thing I believe the Lord said to me about it (amongst others) is that if we are asking for ‘more’ of the Holy Spirit (which much of the church is), then that ‘more’ is to be found by joining in with his saving work outside the walls of the church. He has not given us the Spirit to keep us safe whilst we sit still but to move us into mission. If we want to meet with more of him then we must go to where he is leading us and meet with those he is wanting us to meet with – those living and dying without him. The ‘more’ that we seek is to be experienced as we step into the great commission. The Spirit does not belong to us for our services; we belong to him for His service.” (Amen – Emphases added, RB)

All this confirms what Bob Jones, Charlie Shamp and Doug Addison have heard this year from the Lord as pointing to ‘Now’s the Time – May 2014’.

Visitors notice heavens more open over England – part 3

For ease of reference the previous part is now separated for each person and I’ve also transcribed more of this important material, shown as blue text below. As in Part 2, the emphases are given to convey this speaker’s inflexions and emphasis.

Charlie Shamp

Charlie ShampResurrection Sunday brought some surprise healings and a sprinkling of glittering dust after a long time spent worshipping, as described in the first of three reports here, with following video and analytical commentary.

Those surprises followed from what Charlie Shamp, from the States, had said about what he sees happening  in England. He began by saying,

“There’s coming to this country signs and wonders that this country’s never seen before – and you’re part of that. We’re birthing something that has never been in this country. I know you’ve had miracles, you’ve had salvations, you’ve had outbreaks of the Spirit, of great  awakenings – but as far as it goes with a movement of signs and wonders  – with manifestations, not just prophecies – but manifestations of tangible glory; then what you’re about to see, what’s coming right now, what’s being birthed into this nation right now…has never been seen before.

Visitors notice heavens more open over England – part 2

Since hearing Johnny Enlow in October 2012 (as in Part 1) I’ve heard of other overseas ministers coming to Britain who notice a change in our spiritual atmosphere. Not only a New Zealander and South Africans but also our pastor upon returning from our groups in Norway and Germany, could each sense that the heavens are more open here than over other nations.

Parts 2 and 3 are observations by visitors from North America to our church in March and April. NB: printed emphases are shown to convey spoken inflexions and emphasis, whereas coloured text is editorial highlighting:

Heather Clark 

Heather ClarkAt her dance workshop in Guildford, Canadian worship leader Heather Clark taught from the scriptures about a woman gate-crashing a meeting of men to anoint Jesus with nard, an expensive aromatic oil. Her paraphrase of His reaction to those indignant men was an exact  confirmation of my reaction to criticism from a friend of my looking forward to her workshop. When we arrived for the first session, Heather noticed Nina and later she gave us prophetic words (and accurately for Nina). Continue reading

Visitors notice heavens more open over England – part 1

Who says so? And what do I mean?

This 3-part post will attempt to answer by looking at prophets’ observations made three years ago and prophetic ones from other ministries within the past two months.

Have you ever gone abroad and seen how different upon your arrival the foreign land is from ‘home’?  The nature of a different country, its people and environment are obvious points but a there’s also a more subtle sense of atmosphere. I don’t mean air quality, I mean an intangible ‘feeling’.

The term ‘heavens’ means the sky and everything beyond; outer space with its planets, stars and galaxies. There’s also a definition of ‘heavens’ as ‘invisible, spiritual realms’ wherein dwells Almighty God and His heavenly host, where their direct influence and activity manifest.  Whenever we gather together and are able to hear from the Lord easily or receive obvious blessings, such as healings, and spontaneously  engage in high praise, then the spiritual heavens immediately over a locality are said to be ‘open’.  The glory of the Lord becomes obvious in one way or another, as He deems appropriate.

Several years ago I saw a huge, ugly brown tornado bearing down upon a town. I could tell it was an evil power. Then the clouds parted and so too did the sky far above and a supernal, glorious light broke through. As it seemed to smile down on me I noticed all the power had drained out of the advancing tornado. All that was left of it was a blot on the ground, like a tea-stain upon paper!

Chuck Pierce

Chuck Pierce_credit Diebach-welldiggerThe ordinary sensing of a nation’s atmosphere can be more enhanced for born-again Christians led by the Holy Spirit, especially if endowed with prophetical gifting. It’s even more so for those operating in the clear discernment of a prophet, as happens for Chuck Pierce.

For example, upon landing at here in January 2012 Chuck remarked, “England is on the verge! Being on the verge is like being at a crossroads”. He went on to explain what’s written on the directional finger posts at those crossroads. Continue reading

Yep, the time’s now – May 2014

Hand Holding Puzzle Piece by Ponsulak credit Freedigitalphotos

Did you spot the gem buried in the middle of the previous post? It was as if the Lord had plonked down another piece of the ‘invisible jigsaw‘!  What have several retired folk who are better described as ‘re-fired’ got to do with it? And then came another piece too!  I’ll tell you about that one, but to put you in the picture first.:

For some time I’ve wanted time to transcribe a couple of very brief reports but other stuff got in the way. Followers of my meanderings may have noted my frustration on this at times, but I hope they’ll have noted several times when material has just ‘turned up’, or I’m nudged to look at something else, something more important than my intentions. And last week was just like that…

Instead of doing the transcriptions I’d fully planned on doing first, I had to do the piece on Julie Meyer’s prophetic song. And then something else got in the way of that too! So much time can be wasted online trawling around but this new thing just ‘popped up’. Try getting there on the link I gave and I bet you’ll say it’s ‘looking for a needle in a haystack’ – but that didn’t happen for me!  Maybe an angelic hand was scrolling it onto my screen 🙂

Upon reading the reference to the Lord having referred in 2010 to “The month of May” I just sensed it’s ‘NOW’ – a bit of a play on words with the author’s other reference to the Lord’s having said, “Now!”. So I amended that post’s title to ask, “Is the time now?”

Now it’s not proper prophetical protocol to assign any timing to prophecies. I  was simply hazarding a guess in line with hinting, “Keep your eyes on Britain”, but a few prophets are starting to give dates, thereby putting themselves to the biblical test of a prophet: whether or not their prophecy is fulfilled.

Confirmation

The young adults at our church would love to be in the ‘oldies’ afternoon house group and yesterday they were given a taste of what happened for us last week.  Pastor Lindi had tasked each of us with reporting upon the prophecies discussed at the group (as in previous post) and asked how they fit in with where this church should be heading. The one person not contributing was Nina, my wife.  But when she asked the Lord early one morning she received His reply and prepared it for delivery in church.

This material would cover the anniversary of Bobby Conner’s ‘Firestorm’ word but not Julie’s, “Keep Your Eyes On Britain”.  However, this changed because Lindi referred early in our meeting to a new word about this month, which confirmed what I’d sensed about the 2010 word perhaps targeting “May 2014”.

Our pastor read the main paragraph from a paper by Doug Addison published on 16 May as Sudden Changes Are About to Occur Without Warning in Month of May, which opens:

May is a time when new things will spring forth and begin to come together. Watch for doors and opportunities to open suddenly. We are entering into a new time of things happening suddenly. Webster’s dictionary defines the word suddenly as “happening quickly without warning”. It is time to be prepared for sudden change.

This is poignant in confirming in-depth teaching by Suzanne Ferret at Dr Sharon Stone’s mentoring day on 3rd May upon changes, which had started happening and developing in our local situation.

Upon reading the full piece, I notice it’s linked into an earlier word about this month Wind of Change Starts in Mid-May. This is last week, when I found the 2010 reference to a May. Yet there’s a more important part of Doug’s word stating that,

Unity Is The Key

Doug_Addison credit Elijah ListIn view of the fact that wrangling between churches made me a disillusioned teenager as regards Christianity, what Doug writes on unity and relating it to the curse of Cain is vitally important. The closing paragraphs cover both topics and is apposite to an on-line debate I’ve followed on God & Politics in UK. Here’s Doug’s closing points on those topics:

As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” (1 Cor 12:20-21)

In order to go into the new season and era God is calling us to, we must heal our divisions. We are “one” no matter what our doctrinal differences may be.

……….

It’s the same today, spiritually. When we speak against other Christians, when we wound them or try to kill them spiritually, we can come under this same curse.

We have the theology that the Body is one, but we don’t live out the reality of it. Our sin of judging each other affects us all.

Jesus said, “By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35).

Get ready for sudden changes. Get ready to love people who are different than you, and get ready for God to move in your life and divinely realign us all to become more effective! (Emphasis added)

“Keep your eyes on Britain” – is the time now?

Flying puzzles - Nokhoog BuchachonThe Spirit has been stirring deeply in me since our spectacular Resurrection Sunday.

Its more than a reminder to blog a couple of transcripts of prophetic words from visitors – it involves a timing sequence, a process of unfolding as though with a revelatory purpose.  As previously, pieces are falling into place!

For the past week this prompting has become pronounced. A large picture displayed somewhere, maybe hanging on a wall at one of Dr Stone’s meetings, persists in my mind as though hanging right in front of me. How I wish I could find it and insert here for you to see…but try using your mind’s eye as you read on..:

This picture is a map of mainland Britain but, most unusually, all land is coloured sky blue. No doubt its designer is symbolising spiritual or heavenly things. It’s the exact colour I see through the window behind my monitor – this fresh, sunny morning’s wall-to-wall blue sky. That is, the picture’s blue Britain may mean the heavens are now open.

And all over this map, at locations of cities, towns and elsewhere are symbols of fire. Each fire is depicted by three flames coloured bright crimson red.

This image has been coming to me from about a week last Tuesday when I prepared to republish my transcript of Bobby Conner’s ‘firestorm’ word and scheduled it to appear automatically. It’s most unusual for me to work in advance, especially as I was catching up on the remarkable events on Charlie Shamp’s visit. And on his website I’d spotted his wife’s personal testimony, Baptism Of Fire, which I knew was important to re-post.

Then along came his recommended video about fire angels, or ‘burning ones’, being photographed after a time of worship.

Both blog posts led straight into the 6th anniversary of the prophetic word for the UK of a “Holy, unstoppable firestorm”.

Also connected is the unscheduled consideration at yesterday’s house group of older, well-known prophetic visions for the UK given to Smith-Wigglesworth and Jean Darnall. Our elders and another had met her and I’d been with SW’s prayer partner Norman James when he received the same awesome vision about our time of visitation. Our pastor then asked us to bring these before the church to consider our role in this.

So, this morning I intend featuring the prophetic song Julie Meyer brought in October 2012 about “Keep your eyes on Britain”.  Also, I tried searching the net for that picture and was ‘led’ to check out a site, Prophetic Anointing UK, and quickly espied this on ‘Britain, England, London‘ as part of a longer word for Europe dated April 2010 :

…The nation was Great Britain, and the portal was over England, and the light was targeted at London, then spreading through the nations of Great Britain and the Isles (Habakkuk 2:14). I then heard the voice of the Lord say; “Now!” This time the Lord was answering to a question that had not as yet formed in my heart. He knew I would ask that question before I knew, and to save on time He answered me (Isaiah 65:24). Again the Lord answered to the angel saying; “Now!” and finally, with a smile as of One who knew the end of a matter from its beginning, the Lord answered; “Month of May”.

That dating caught my eye and so I’ve emphasised it. Maybe it’s this May 2014? This would line up with the later word about God’s glory being on display this Spring?

So, let’s carefully consider the words Julie brought and listen to her song:

Julie Meyer; courtesy Voice of the Apostles

“Even today…I can see the Bridegroom Jesus –

And He’s got His eyes on Europe – He’s got His eyes on Europe, Europe, Europe.

Even this morning – I can see the Bridegroom – dancing, dancing –

He’s making His plans, He’s making His plans, He’s making His plans –

His eyes are on Europe – His eyes are on Europe –

He’s going to dance all over the land –

He’s going to set the captives free – He’s going to set the captives free – He’s going to set the captives free…free.

And it’s going to start in Britain –

The Lord says, “Keep your eyes on Britain – 

Keep your eyes on Britain – Britain – Britain – Britain.”

There’s something greater – there’s something greater coming to Great Britain,

There’s something greater…than John Wesley – there’s something greater.

God, God, God’s the bridegroom – He’s going to dance all over the land –

He’s going to start in Britain –  and that’s where John Wesley started.

Oh, you’re part of the great, great storyline – Britain –

And it’s not over – it’s getting bigger – it’s bigger, it’s bigger, it’s bigger.”

“You’re NOT left out Europe – you’re not left out Europe –

I’ll make you a sign – and a wonder – a wonder – and a sign

For the nations are Mine – for Europe is Mine – for the nations are Mine, are Mine –

But keep your eyes on Britain – keep your eyes on Britain –

It’s going to start…in Britain – like a wildfire! –

like a wildfire! – like a wildfire! – like a wildfire! –

It’s unstoppable! – it’s unstoppable! –

because I’m God – and I choose you!”

Hallelujah.”

A short piccolo solo follows and we return to Julie, “We just declare that over you this morning, Britain and Europe, we prophesy…” and vocalists also pick up the refrain:

“BEHOLD! The Bridegroom COMETH”

We prophesy over you Europe, we prophesy:

“Behold – The Bridegroom cometh!”

We prophesy over Europe:

“Behold – The Bridegroom cometh!

I’m arising – I’m arising – I’m arising!

Behold – The Bridegroom cometh!”

It’s not just a song – it’s a prophecy – it’s going out, it’s going out this morning:

“Behold – The Bridegroom cometh!

Britain, I’m coming!

Europe, I’m coming!

Behold – The Bridegroom cometh!…”

Bobby Conner: A holy, unstoppable firestorm coming to the UK

bobbyconnerSix 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.

Please note:

  1. 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.)
  2. 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…”

.

Bobby Conner

“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.”

Bobby continues:

“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

NOTE:

** 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.

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
earth”.

Sighting of angels in a fire

Last week, Graham (church elder) kindly agreed to postpone group study of Ephesians 2 because of an intriguing video our elders had just received from Charles Shamp.

The video’s content spoke very deeply into their sacrificial service of going wherever the Lord sent them to plant churches. They shared how each move was one of ‘burning bridges’, just as Elisha had burned his plough so there’d be no returning to farming and indicated a wholehearted response to Elijah’s call. We then read aloud these associated scriptures:

I Kings 19:19-21 Amplified Bible (AMP)
19 So Elijah left there and found Elisha son of Shaphat, whose plowing was being done with twelve yoke of oxen, and he drove the twelfth. Elijah crossed over to him and cast his mantle upon him.
20 He left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, Let me kiss my father and mother, and then I will follow you. And he [testing Elisha] said, Go on back. What have I done to you? [Settle it for yourself.]
21 So Elisha went back from him. Then he took a yoke of oxen, slew them, boiled their flesh with the oxen’s yoke [as fuel], and gave to the people, and they ate. Then he arose, followed Elijah, and served him.
Isaiah 6:1-8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 In the year that King Uzziah died, [in a vision] I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the skirts of His train filled the [most holy part of the] temple.
2 Above Him stood the Seraphim [The Burning Ones]; each had six wings: with two [each] covered his [own] face, and with two [each] covered his feet, and with two [each] flew.
3 And one cried to another and said, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!
4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone and ruined, because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!
6T Then flew one of the Seraphim [The Burning Ones] to me, having a live coal in his hand which he had taken with tongs from off the altar;
7 And with it he touched my mouth and said, Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity and guilt are taken away, and your sin is completely atoned for and forgiven.
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Next, Margaret read out Charlie’s covering note before she ran the video,

Check out this awesome testimony  from my good friend Gary Beaton. Almost a year to the date of his visitation from two burning ones that brought a commissioning from The Lord. God is using him in such a mighty way! Love how God always confirms His word with promotion from above.”

Be mightily blessed as you listen to Gary’s amazing account of what happened whilst worshiping the Lord, and to the subsequent understanding and confirmation that he received.

The Fire Angels

For reference purposes, Gary’s much shorter account of that event published on Transformation Glory Ministries website, reads as follows:

I live in the country near the Smoky Mountain National Park. This past Saturday morning, I had a quickening to go out back and down to the back of our property where I’ve had a large garden each year for nearly 20 years. This year I felt to leave the ground fallow and not plant a garden. Near the same area there is a large burn-pile where we collect limbs and dry wood throughout the spring. The pile was high and we hadn’t had a burn in a long time. The air was fresh and clear… and the wind was calm. The conditions were perfect and I felt moved to burn the pile.

I took a little bit of gasoline and dribbled it in strategic places on the sticks. I stood back and lit it with a match. Within seconds, it erupted into a large bonfire. It was beautiful and the flames rose high against the backdrop of a clear blue sky. I stepped back to watch and raised my hands in worship to the Lord. It seemed fitting and I also began to sing in the Spirit as I worshipped.

Seemingly out of no-where, the story of the calling of Elisha came to me, where he had been plowing his field with 12 yoke of oxen. Then, Elijah the Prophet arrived while Elisha was plowing and wrapped his own mantle around Elisha and then invited him to go with him. So Elisha burnt his plow and oxen to feed the people and then went on with Elijah.

As I stood there with my arms still raised in worship, I told the Lord in front of this massive bonfire, “Lord, in this moment, I burn my plow and oxen symbolically in this fire to follow you in whatever you would have me do.”

Then, immediately, the scriptural passage out of Isaiah 6 came to me, where the Lord says “Whom shall I send? Who will go for Us?” Isaiah replied… “Here am I, send me.” So I repeated that phrase out loud also, as I have in times past… “Lord, Here am I, send me.” (I know that this is the heart of everyone in our team.)

At the bonfire, it was a powerful moment in time and I felt the presence of the Lord all around me. What I didn’t know is that my wife Kristi was taking a picture of the bonfire from the house nearly 100 yards away because it’s a rare event I would have one… and what ended up appearing in the photo looks like two Angelic beings. While all I was seeing was a massive fire, the camera captured what the Lord wanted us to see…. Heavenly Beings that are with us. It says in Hebrews that they are “Ministers of Fire sent to aid those that are the Heirs of Salvation.”

I’ve had many supernatural events and encounters in my life before, but none like this one. I’m not sure if they are Angels or represent some facet of the Trinity. Either way, it was meant to be a visual message for some distinct dimension in my life. I also believe that this was sent by the Lord and was intended for our entire Apostolic Kingdom Leader Tribe as a sign and wonder. The Lord has come to wrap His Mantle around us and these “Beings” were somehow revealed in the fire to bear witness to the event and to our ultimate call as His A-Team in the Spirit realm….

I would love to hear your input as you meditate on these scriptures (above) and the photograph I’ve attached. You will see things I have not and collectively we will gain His thought, intentions and wisdom. One thing that does come to me relates to what Dr. Joseph has been sharing on rest…. that once Elisha responded to the call, he entered into a rest by burning the plow and oxen, and was able to make the shift into a new dimension/paradigm for his life and call, ultimately into the double portion…

Blessings to you all.

A baptism in holy fire

The following account by Brynn Shamp is so appropriate for what, I believe, may be about to befall many who passionately desire to see the Lord’s face.:

fire-of-Holy-Spirit-300x194BAPTISM OF FIRE

There’s always a moment.

A space in time, seemingly etched out of eternity. In that moment when Heaven meets destiny… a vision is birthed. A purpose revealed. A dream conceived. It is those moments the Greek word Kairos refers to. It’s meaning is, “The appointed time in the purpose of God”, the time when God acts. Continue reading
