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!
The 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.
Before recounting observations aligning with my recent posts, however, I’m reminded of what Johnny Enlow shared later that year at a mentoring day on 13 October 2012.
I reported his confirming the content of Julie Meyer’s song in “The Bridegroom Cometh”. It was inspirational instruction but it didn’t seem right at the time to report details of what Johnny had brought. But now is the right time…
I ask myself, what did he say? And where is it? It’s buried in old notepads. Can I and have I time to find it? Where are those pads? Not in the study but I go to our bedroom and find them. But there’s pages of scrawled notes – and written from both ends!! Help!
Grabbing one pad I happen to open from the back, its first page starts:
“2012 is the year of the Promise Maker…reveals Himself as ‘Promise Keeper’.” and my notes continue “John Enlow (13.10.12) 7 Mountain Mandate”.
“Thank you Lord”, I respond – so quick and simple!
The Mandate, Johnny explained, is “not so much a ‘how to’ or strategy but more an assignment/commissioning and is a template for understanding how the KINGDOM IS LANDING”. Now that spoke directly into what I’d seen happening in Westminster in a dream and perceived by revelation that, “The Kingdom is being set up”. (For details see notes under ‘Sept 2011’ in Library of Prophecies/Visions.) So I was all ears!
Upon arriving in the UK Johnny heard,
- “Mother (Britain) is awakening to instruct nations in righteousness” and he understands this will connect nations into their proper Godly order.
- “The lioness will get back her roar!” Tens of millions of angels under our ruling angel, whose name Johnny divulged, are commissioned to make sure England comes into its destiny.
- Holy Spirit is breaking into highest levels of leadership in government, church and leading schools – and south London!
- A ‘patch of heaven’s economy’ is coming and international traders will unexpectedly buy into Sterling (related report here).
Johnny advised delegates that, “Whatever crisis exists, the solution is already in the sons and daughters of God” and that the Lord says,
“I will love people into loving Me and their repentance will follow.”
This word bears scriptural scrutiny in being akin to Apostle Paul’s letters to the church in Rome on judging one another, and to his ‘troubleshooter’ associate Titus, as below with emphases added:
Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? (Romans 2:4 NKJV)
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope – the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. (Titus 2:11-14 NIV)
It is especially interesting that what Johnny claims as coming from the Lord is repeated in the words for May brought by Doug Addision, as highlighted in my previous post.
