Simon Braker: a dream of judgement/revival in USA

Hand Holding Puzzle Piece by PonsulakIn drafting an email about developments in UK, I wanted to insert a link to my latest posts. BUT something made me check that its opening link does work and WOW! I don’t usually bother with Facebook but this opened up Simon’s main page and I saw the first lines of what he’d just posted this morning. Intrigued, I clicked ‘More’ and read:

I’ve held this word for quite some time it came as a dream  –

A dream for the United States of America

I found myself sat in what can only be described as a frantic courtroom
I sat and watched as one witness after another presented their evidence
One came forward and shouted with tears look at this wickedness!
I looked and saw horrific pictures of dead babies and children,
Then another came and shouted look at this greed
Then another look at this pride
Then another look at this corruption
This went on as more and more irrefutable evidence of guilt was given.

It got to the point that the courtroom was in a frenzy of outrage

Yet the high judge just sat and listened until every accusation had been given and all the evidence had been submitted,

Once all this was done he still sat silent,
All the people stood and chanted guilty, guilty, judge them, judge them!

Finally with a loud voice the judge said, “Silence!!”.
Immediately every person became silent and sat down

The judge spoke and said – “I have heard all and seen all, the guilt of these lands of the United States of America is indeed great!

“I have decided judgment is indeed due and right!”
The people cheered, he commanded them to be silent!

“Before I pass my judgment I have one last witness, can the Holy Spirit take the stand please,”

An old woman came forward she was old but not frail in any way her eyes shone as she stood in the dock –

The judge spoke – “Do you have your evidence?”
“I do indeed” and she pointed to the video screen.
There appeared an image of a small child on her knees praying then a teenager then an adult, image after image appeared of more and more Believers of every age, class and race falling to their knees in prayer, then screen went black,

The judge spoke – “Is this the last of your evidence?”
The old woman responded “Yes!”

“Please step down” the judge replied.

All eyes in the room were fixed on him.

“Your evidence is indeed compelling, yet the guilt of this land is indeed great, in fact it grows daily I have therefore chosen judgment”,

He place a black cloth over his head took the hammer in his hand and struck the gavel and said “I find this land worth of………

“A Great revival the likes of which has never been seen before or will be seen again!”

As he said this blood poured forth from his throne and swept every accuser out of the room,

I then saw a map of the United States going up in flames as God began the answer the prayers of his burning ones,

the Lord spoke and said, “The guilt of this land is indeed great but my praying church and my shed blood is greater! So I grant a great revival that will take every street town and city for I will not have the cries of my people unheard, this land will arise and she will indeed shine!

“In what seems to be her darkest hour she shall shine at her brightest!”

RB Notes:

This is especially interesting in view of yesterday’s correspondence with Pat Schatzline. One of my regular contributors emailed after I’d précised his recent teaching at CHP (as here), and so I replied and copied to his ministry, little expecting to get a reply from him. He’s deeply moved by the dream and I responded as follows on revival in USA:

“What I particularly noted was the word about revival the Lord gave you for Pastor John (Kilpatrick), which I’d previously noted and blogged after the New Year (see later half of  https://richards-watch.org/2015/01/06/prophecies-fulfilled-3-contd-revival-to-re-visit-usa/)”

I kept Simon in the loop on his Facebook, to which he responded and I’ve emphasised:

“Bless you for helping to get the word out my friend, much appreciated! And I’m glad it’s blessing. I have to say it was one of the most profound words I’ve ever been given“.

Simon Braker: a season of new mantles

Simon_Braker-147x150School of the Prophetic Leicester’s Facebook page dated 23 October has the following by Simon Braker.  My thanks go to Suzanne Payne for notifying me on Friday but which I didn’t read until today. This is such an appropriately encouraging follow-up to the last  post, Shut That Door! (to which a couple of readers have already responded). Please see my footnotes too:

Simon writes:

I felt the Lord say:

My body has entered into a season of new mantles. Many have served faithfully like Joseph in this last decade they have served and refused to be offended, they have took rejection misrepresentation and even personal attack yet they have stayed true, some have suffered great personal loss yet in all the testing they have stayed true to me and have refused to become bitter.

In this next season I’m releasing new mantles of authority and Anointing,

Many who have lived many years with a distant dream and longing shall now step into the manifestation of the promise, I am releasing new mantles of Anointing for this next move of my Spirit, I have a new breed of prophets and apostles who will help build for the new wine of my presence,

This will not be a time of great ministers but of great teams and great churches, the days of the corporate blessing are upon you,

I’m raising up diplomats who will know how to function across streams, nations and networks and I’m birthing in this time a global unity across my body the likes of which has never been seen before, this unity will become the foundation from which the promise of discipling nations shall begin to come to pass.

Lion Bites: Shut that door!

Lion-Bites-logo-2012After making a minor amendment to the Library of Prophecies’ cross-reference to its sub-page on ‘A New Era for the Church’, I noted today’s word had arrived from Glasgow Prophetic Centre. It is published with their kind permission:

SHUT THAT DOOR!

The Lord says,

“It is time to close the door to the previous season once and for all. It is time to shut it, lock it and throw away the key!”

You have been in a prolonged season of confusion and, although you have heard many prophetic statements of ‘the season coming to an end’, this has yet to be your reality. Continuing in this season makes you afraid but know that God is not a God who would leave you there.

And the Spirit says to you,

“Power lies in your choice. If you choose to move out of where you are and move into my grace, it will become your reality. The choice is yours to close the door to the previous season and open the door to the next. For I have given you the keys to the season in your hands. I have given you the ability to shut the old door behind you and lock it fast… and begin to unlock the door to the next season.”

If you feel your spirit leap at this invitation from the Holy Spirit and want to choose to walk fully into the new season you can pray prayer like this:

Father God, I now choose to close the door to this previous season of confusion. I am sorry for where I have procrastinated in the old but I now declare that I am out of that season. I now choose to move with your grace, I choose to move into the season ahead that you’ve got for me.

1 Corinthians 14:33 – For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.

Is the ‘Star of Bethlehem’ re-appearing?

Nelson Walter’s Star of Bethlehem Sign Repeats Again This Week (click to read original) is re-blogged in connection with a recent post, as in my footnote below:

VenusandJupiter 2015In June 2015, a once in 2000 year conjunction of Venus and Jupiter recreated what many think “may” have been the Star of Bethlehem.  The occurrence of this sign just a couple of days after the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Same Sex marriage led me to write this post {click here}. It has turned out to be the most popular of all the posts on this site with over 300,000 views. You may want to re-read it.

This Star of Bethlehem sign is repeating again this week. If you wake before sunrise this week in the USA, Venus and Jupiter will come within 1 degree of separation on October 25-26 high in the eastern sky. Amazingly Venus and Jupiter are again coming into conjunction in the constellation of Leo the Lion near the “King star” Regulus. This is the same exact location (near Regulus) in the constellations that was the site of the original “Star of Bethlehem” conjunction in 3 BC and the conjunction in June 2015. We discuss this in the previous article as well. I find that coincidence  amazing.

I have been watching Venus and Jupiter get ever closer together in the morning sky for weeks now. (I leave for work pretty early). This conjunction will not be as dramatic as the June one, but seeing the two brightest objects in the sky (other than the moon) that close is something to see. In North Carolina (my home state), the skies have been brilliantly clear to view it.

Is there a prophetic meaning to this sign repeating yet again? I don’t know. Certainly the second advent of our King grows closer and closer every day. Is God continuing to send us subtle warning signs for us to begin to “get ready?”

RB’ Note: I’ve corrected my reference to astronomical data for 23rd September 2017 in Supermoon Monday’s ‘Blood-moon’ and the ‘Age to Come’. Whilst writing it I was aware of this Summer’s conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, but as Charlie Shamp was not so specific in his very brief remarks I’d assumed it’s that kind of event he’s anticipating. It is not. In view of his reference to Revelation 12 he was referring to what informed observers are expecting for the constellation of Virgo – a reference to which I’d also provided. Please accept my apology for any confusion.

Let’s continue boasting about who Jesus is…

566xNxfiery-furnace_jpg_pagespeed_ic_aXtdrK6kJ2Continuing the previous post, we exalt with Pat Schatzline the identity of the fourth man in the fiery furnace, whom Nebchadnezzar described as a ‘Son of God’ and officially declared and affixed his royal seal thereto that,

“…No other god can save in this way!”

Excitedly, Pat continues recounting His identities in the New Covenant as follows:

“Hallowed be Thy Name”:

  • in Matthew, He is The Messiah.
  • in Mark, He is the Wonder-worker.
  • in Luke, He is the Son of Man.
  • in John, He is the Son of God.
  • in Acts, He is the Holy Spirit and Fire.
  • in Romans, He is our Justifier.
  • in Corinthians, He is the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  • in Galatians, He is the Redeemer from the curse of the law.
  • in Philippians, He is the God Who Supplies All Our Needs.
  • in Ephesians, He is the Christ of Unsearchable Riches.
  • in Colossians, He is the Godhead Bodily.
  • in 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, He is the Soon-Coming King.
  • in Timothy I and II, He is our Mediator between God and Man.
  • in Titus, He is our Faithful Pastor.
  • In Philemon, He is the Friend that Sticks Closer than a Brother.
  • in Hebrews, He is the Blood of the Everlasting Covenant.
  • in James, He is the Great Physician.
  • in I and II Peter, He is the Chief Shepherd who shall soon appear with a crown of unfading glory.
  • in I, II and  III John, He is the Everlasting Love.
  • in Jude, He is the Lord Coming with Ten Thousands of His Saints.
  • in Revelation, He is the Alpha and Omega, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

“Do you know my King? Do you know the fourth Man? Lift your hands and praise…praise Him!”

Reading from the overhead screen Pat had to interrupt these exciting declarations after saying “Soon and Coming King”. Rapidly speaking under the anointing he declared,

“He just told me to remind this house who He is. There is nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, not a thing! You can’t write it down because, He said to Moses “Tell them I AM sends you, Elohim, the I AM, sends you: LORD, Sovereign LORD. Tell them that’s who sends you”.

“It means I AM everything that you could ever imagine will supply My people’s needs!”

The last description applies to His Name as El Shaddai, which reminds me of how Paul Keith Davis tells of a Jewish listener saying that, “El Shaddai is the God of utter ruin and destruction, who’s able to supply all that man cannot”.

Watch this thrilling message on Church of His Presence video (start 1:39:10). Pat’s opening prophecy may be read on this blog at Revival in the USA – a prophetical perspective from ‘over The Pond’.

With grateful acknowledgement to Pat Schatzline and to CHP for the great blessing of all this information. Pat’s website is located at Remnant Ministries International.

More biblical boasting on who Jesus is…

PatSchatzline-chp‘Live wire, rapid fire’ Pat Schatzline says, “I have a sleep disorder called revelation!”.

His focus last Sunday prompted me to resurrect a ‘Do You Know Him?’ video from a menu page published in April 2012. Hence, this week’s earlier post, Let’s boast in who Jesus Christ is, because…

566xNxfiery-furnace_jpg_pagespeed_ic_aXtdrK6kJ2Pat’s message is based upon the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refusing to bow down to king Nebuchadnezzar’s golden idol, and the fourth man with them in the fiery furnace. The king describes him as “like a son of the gods” (Aramaic; ‘being-like to-son-of Elohim’, Daniel 4:27).

First, however, Pat stresses the importance of ‘bragging on the Lord’ because the Lord told him that’s the difference between meetings where there’s lots of healing miracles and none. Pat wants to go to churches with ‘ed’ on Sunday, where he can talk about what God did there and brag about it, all in accord with scripture!

His prophetical message (see ‘Revival on the Gulf Coast’ header here) about the new era notes that the days ahead will require a new level of praise, as in Psalm 150:1-6 and the congregation rises up with him:

“It’s what washes your mind. You gotta praise when you get up, praise when doing things in the day, praise when you go to sleep – it will keep you from doing dumb things.”

Pat’s been on a very intense journey since being there last Summer because the Lord’s been saying, “If you’ll allow me to take you to the places of revival, you’ll be part of the next one”.  So he’s been reading history books and writing one on the present lack of altar-calls to repentance, which thereby break demonic bondage rather than as in some services where demons are sanctified.

“He hasn’t abdicated! He is still on the throne and He’s calling us back to the altars…You’ve GOT to get your eyes on Him because the culture’s intense right now: right is wrong and wrong is right – faith is being challenged at every level!

“When you use scripture the world’s against you because of political correctness and so you’ve got to know who you are in Christ…

“I’m watching prophets running round who are friends of mine and they’re declaring gloom and doom. I get it – the four blood moons, the shemitah, signs and wonders on earth – I understand all that kind of stuff and believe it! But I’m watching all that and think:

“We’ve gotta talk some life here, we’ve gotta realise everybody ain’t saved yet…BUT what if we praise Him, we just praise Him!

Pat quotes 1 Peter 4:12 and 13 – ‘Dear friends do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering as though something strange were happening to you but rejoice that you participate in the suffering of Christ so that you may be overjoyed when His glory is revealed’, reinforced by The Message version of Matthew 6:26. He continues,

“God told me what to tell you is to brag on Him and  things in your life will change – turn that stupidity off your TV! Learn to brag on Him, brag on Him, brag on Him…Look what it says in His Word at Isaiah 60:1-5,

‘Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon YOU. Nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your dawn…’

Recounting, with video, the account of Daniel’s friends being saved in the furnace by the fourth man, he reminds us the king issued an Empire-wide decree that anyone saying anything against these three men’s god be executed and homes demolished. Why? Because “No other god can save in this way”!

So too, ‘the fourth man’ is with us in all our trials. As Pat struggled in the night preparing this message the Lord told him to boast about Him because of what’s about to be done and seen wherever He’s praised.

He concludes by revealing the identity of that fourth man whereby we may boast of the Father and Son; or in other words, to introduce our King:

  • in Genesis, He is the Seed of the Woman.
  • in Exodus, He is The Passover Lamb.
  • in Leviticus, He is the our High Priest.
  • in Numbers, He is the Pillar of Cloud by day and the Pillar of Fire by night.
  • in Deuteronomy, He is the Prophet like unto Moses.
  • in Joshua, He is the Captain of our Salvation (and of the heavenly host).
  • in Judges, He is our Judge and Lawgiver
  • in Ruth, He is our Kinsman Redeemer.
  • in 1st & 2nd Samuel, He is our Trusted Prophet.
  • in Kings and Chronicles, He is our Reigning King.
  • in Ezra, He is our Faithful Scribe.
  • in Nehemiah, He is the Rebuilder of the Broken-down Walls in our lives.
  • in Esther, He is our Mordecai.
  • in Job, He is our Dayspring from on high and our Ever-living Redeemer.
  • in Psalms, He is The Lord our Shepherd.
  • in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, He is our Wisdom.
  • in the Song of Songs, He is our Lover and our Bridegroom.
  • in Isaiah, He is The Prince of Peace.
  • in Jeremiah, He is the Righteous Branch.
  • in Lamentations, He is the Weeping Prophet.
  • in Ezekiel, He is the Wonderful Four-faced Man.
  • in Daniel, He is the Fourth Man in our Fire (and Son of Man).
  • in Hosea, He is the Faithful Husband, forever married to the ‘backslider’.
  • in Joel, He is the Baptiser in the Holy Spirit and Fire.
  • in Amos, He is our Burden-Bearer.
  • in Obadiah, He is the Mighty To Save.
  • in Jonah, He is our Great Foreign Missionary.
  • in Micah, He is the Messenger of Beautiful Feet carrying the Gospel.
  • in Nahum, He is the Avenger of God’s Elect.
  • in Habakkuk, He is God’s Evangelist crying out, “Revive Thy work in the midst of the years!”.
  • in Zephaniah, He is the Saviour who sings songs over me.
  • in Haggai, He is the Restorer of God’s Lost Heritage.
  • In Zecharia, He is the Fountain Open in the House of David for sin and uncleanliness.
  • in Malachi, He is The Son of Righteousness Risen with Healing in His Wings.

“Do you know Him?

“I don’t care what you’re walking through;

“He said, if you put me as pre-eminent, I’ll change the atmosphere,

“If you’ll learn how to praise me, I’ll change the atmosphere,

“If you’ll learn how to trust me again, I’ll change the atmosphere…I have the power to transform your…to transform what’s been coming against you..”

An exceptionally inspirational message! Much of it reinforces the prophetic word from Jerusalem received on the first day of the past Feast of Tabernacles – read it again.

Also, those are Old Covenant identities of the Fourth Man – so there’s more to come in the New. First, however, let’s mull over and appreciate Who the Lord is.

Now, to continue boasting in who Jesus is >>>

Sacred space in a busy world? – take a Quiet Day

Acorn Q-day2If you have a day to spare you may like to consider the next Quiet-Day at Acorn, Sacred Space in a Busy World  (click for details). Located near the A3 in East Hampshire it’s easily accessible from Surrey, West Sussex and London. Maybe it’s time for you to have a day out with Him?

Busy bashing my blog on Thursdays I’m giving up next week’s for time out with the Lord. As you may have gathered from Not blogging but…, it was well-worth my attending a recent day Quiet Day.

Acorn Q-day1That day’s focus was on how to sit, walk and stand, as Paul teaches in his letter to the Ephesian church. Additionally, I gained confirmation from the Lord about the blog’s theme at that time, plus some other personal scriptures. This subsequently bore fruit in reading and later discussing the Book of Daniel as a result of Nelson Walter’s thought-provoking blog, which I hope to cover soon.

I went on that day trying to put aside concerns about how to reschedule what was in the pipeline until the next week. From the outset I was amazed, so there wasn’t any need for concern. It all proved to be in the Lord’s hands for, as in Romans 8:28, He works out all things to the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

Let’s boast in who Jesus Christ is, because…

Let him who boasts boast in the Lord (2 Cor 10:17 NIV)
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV)

One of the latest comments on this YouTube version reads:

“I’m not looking for likes I just want to share this. I was lying in bed watching this with a badly scraped knee to where I could not move it. After 2 minutes passed a hot chill shot through my body and my pain stopped and I could fully move my leg. I felt the love and passion from God through me. Please if you believe this was the power of the loving beloved, please respond with amen. I lift your name on high.” (KPX)

Amen!

If you’re a visitor to this blog and don’t believe in Jesus Christ I invite you to consider my few notes, Do You Know Jesus?  On that page hear Shadrach Meshach Lockridge tell where God came from and how He created everything – it’s a clever, brief exposition and asks the same question, “Do you know Him?”

Monday Mirth – God loves drunkards too!

At 3.00 am this morning a man and his wife were awakened by a loud pounding on the door. The man got up and went to the door to find a drunken stranger standing in the pouring rain.

He’s asking for a push!

“Not a chance,” says the husband, “It’s 3 in the morning!” He slams the door and goes back to bed.

“Who was that?” asks his wife. “Some drunk guy asking for a push,” he answers.

“Did you help him?” she asks. “No, I didn’t, it’s 3 in the morning and it’s pouring with rain!”

“Well, you have a short memory,” says his wife. “You’ve forgotten last month when our car broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him. And you..”, she says, “You should be ashamed of yourself! God loves drunk people too you know”.

Groaning, the husband does as he’s told, gets dressed and goes out into the pounding rain. He calls out into the dark, “Hello, are you still there?”.

“Yes”, comes back the answer.

“Do you still need a push?” calls out the husband.

“Yes please!” comes the reply from the dark.

“But I can’t see you. Where are you?” asks the husband.

“Over here – on the swing…” replied the drunk 🙂

[With thanks to the original, unknown source and to a local church maintenance team in So’ton. When I thanked our friend in person I grinned and reminded him the church was full of ‘drunks’ at its birth!! The incredulity and shocked look was amusing for, being an Anglican, he doesn’t appreciate what Pentecost must have been like! 

He was enlightened when I said the disciples were so full of the Holy Spirit that people thought they were drunk (Acts 2:13). However, telling of abundant joy and merriment experienced nowadays when He brings refreshing to those who invite and celebrate His Presence is beyond our friend’s comprehension, for the present.

I pray that everyone reading this amusing post will be thoroughly blessed by the fullness of the Lord’s Spirit…Amen.]

Dr Maurice Sklar vision: “Tell them all, the Day of The Lord is upon you now!”

As well as receiving a prophetic word re. Israel (on war, times of the Gentiles) during Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles,  28 Sept – 4 Oct), Dr Maurice Sklar reported another personal experience on Facebook. Similar to the vision in chapter 5 of the Book of Revelation, it is re-posted below:

“THE DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE!”

Dr M Sklar

Dr M Sklar

Nearly every day since I have arrived in Jerusalem this year, I have received something from God. Yesterday, as I was brushing my teeth in the bathroom, Connie Wilson, who was in her kitchen preparing a brunch, and who is flowing so strong in the prophetic, began to quote the old praise and worship song from Joel:” Blow the Trumpet in ZION, ZION…for the day of the LORD is….and she paused for a second…it’s HERE!”.

As soon as she spoke the word…HERE…I was caught up in a prophetic experience / vision which lasted several hours. Though I could still function in “the natural” somewhat, I was overwhelmed in my spirit. This is what I experienced:

First, I saw I was in what looked like a Cathedral, and a courtroom at the same time. There were two rows of twelve angels. One to the left and one to the right in parallel columns facing each other. They had long golden trumpets in their right hands. They simultaneously put them to their mouths and blew a long blast. It grew louder and louder until the building itself began to shake and I could not bear the sound and fell on my face. Then, after I was helped up to my feet again by my angel, I saw a majestic throne. I could see the Outline of our Heavenly Father, but I could not see his face. It was just blinding light that I could not look at for very long. Under him stood Michael the Archangel. He was a giant warrior, clothed in glorious armor and stood like a statue almost, with his arms folded. A great sword was in a sheath at his right hip. He had a bronze-like color to his face, and a grim, but noble and exalted expression. He was standing right under God’s throne and in the middle between the two columns of angels who blew the trumpets. Then, I was allowed to look around, and I saw other thrones that were grouped in a semi-circle around and above them. They had black robes on, and looked like they were judges. I knew that this must be like the Supreme Court of Heaven. As my eyes seemed to adjust to the brightness, then I could recognize some of those who were Judges in this great meeting. They were some from the Bible, and others who were from both Jewish and Christian history that were Overcomers. They were seated with crowns on their heads of stunning glory and majesty. It was clear that this meeting was extremely important and there was a great awesome holiness in the giant room. The Angels that blasted their trumpets seemed to exit to the sides of the room. Michael stood like a statue in the same place. Then, Gabriel stepped forward next to him and cried out, “THE DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE!!” Then, in absolute unison, every one on their thrones dropped to their knees and began to worship. Then, an Angel that I could not recognize, came forward with a scroll in his hand. It had an old-fashioned type of wax-like seals on it that held it closed. There were seven big wax-like seals on it that were bright red. He gave it to the Ancient of Days who took it. Then the LORD spoke, “WHO IS WORTHY TO OPEN THIS? WHO IS FOUND WORTHY TO BREAK THE SEAL?” Then, every one began to weep. Suddenly, I started weeping as well. None of those great men and women were worthy. We all could see where we had sinned and failed in our lives. None were worthy. Then, the Lord Yeshua our Messiah just appeared in front of the throne, but facing us. He was looking at each of us as if we were the only ones in the room. Then, I saw he changed! He became a Lamb…then He became the biggest and most noble Lion that I had ever seen. And every few moments, He would transform from a Man, to a Lamb, and then to a Lion, and then back to a Man. When He was in the form of His body as a Man, I could see the holes in His hands. Then, he turned around and took the scroll from the Father. There was total silence. Then, a huge shout came! It seemed that all of heaven was watching and joined in! A ROAR of PRAISE erupted. Now all the Judges were on their feet. They said in unison, “WORTHY IS THE LAMB THAT WAS SLAIN TO TAKE THE SCROLL AND LOOSE THE SEALS THEREOF!!” This proclamation, though I heard it in English, was shouted by all of heaven in every language at the same time. Yeshua then sat down on His throne next to the Father. He took the scroll, and it seemed like I zoomed in and could see it clearly. He broke the first seal, and said, as He was looking into me with His glorious eyes of fire and love, “TELL THEM ALL, THE DAY OF THE LORD IS UPON YOU NOW!”. Then the experience ended.

May God have mercy on us all! Amen and AMEN.

Dr Maurice Sklar: Blood moon prophetic word re. Israel

The concert violinist and Messianic Jew, Dr Maurice Sklar, was the recipient of a couple of revelatory events during The Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem. The first appears below as published on Facebook (click title for original and commenting thereto). As with all prophetic words and visions both are to be weighed against scripture and with the Lord. (The second follows tomorrow – now published):

A PROPHETIC WORD:

The LORD says, “War is coming against Israel! Just as I have clearly spoken in My Word, and just as I have confirmed through my holy servants the true Prophets, I will hold it back no longer. You say to Me, “What do all of these signs converging together this month mean?” Many of My church are in fear, thinking only of doomsday and despair. Some leaders are trying to tell fortunes and predict days and times, thinking that I must do what they say when they predict it. Some are making millions of dollars by merchandising and sensationalizing these events to the point it is idolatry and distraction instead of sound prophetic ministry. I (the LORD) am far greater than your false prognosticators and charlatans. Do not follow after those deceivers – you must judge them and their ministries by their fruits and take everything you hear and judge it according to My Word.

To My beloved Bride: Look and see the signs in the heavens and upon the earth. Notice them, but don’t focus on them! Keep your eyes on Me! I am the LORD, not the sun, moon, or stars. I am greater than any event that has or will come to shake the heavens and the earth. Many of My people are crying out to Me in prayer for clarity and guidance right now.

Is Obama complicit in the persecution of Christians?

The claims made by Lord George Weidenfeld about president Obama’s inept Middle-East policy only gloss the surface of what a multitude of highly informed experts have been continually saying – including Russian president Putin, as below!.

It’s notable, for example, that on the very same day that interview was broadcast one expert (who warned of the likelihood of the 9/11 atrocity) published his ‘One-Minute Guide’ on POTUS’ foreign policy.

That and this peer’s preference to assist Iraqi and Syrian Christians escape barbarity, deserve deeper consideration in the light of recent events.

Without writing in depth on this I’d refer anyone who’s interested to read the following by Raymond Ibrahim, a few of whose writings I’ve reposted here on this blog. The last of these is on the US’ policy of preventing Christian testimony of persecution. So let me direct you to some of his latest on our matter-in-hand:

Leading publisher contradicts BBC HARDtalk on Obama, Mid-East & terrorism

An extraordinary interview popped onto our TV screen last night after a dvd closed down. We rarely bother with ‘talking-heads’; however, we stopped in our tracks upon hearing a question on the persecution of Christians. Joining as the first question was asked, we remained ‘glued’ to the dialogue.

Lord Weidenfeld credit Independent

News-makers and personalities around the world are interviewed in-depth on BBC World Services’ and News channel’s HARDtalk by presenter Stephen Sackur. Last night he interviewed British peer Lord Weidenfeld, who  made London his home for the past eight decades after escaping nazi Austria and the Holocaust just before World War II. He became one of Britain’s best known publishers of high quality, prize-winning fiction and non-fiction (see Weidenfeld&Nicolson).

The programme was billed: ‘Now 96 years old, his life says much about the modern history of Britain, Europe and the Jewish people. But as he reflects, is he filled with hope or something darker?’. It reflects Sakur’s stance, quite contrary to that of his guest!  And he didn’t cave in to the presenter’s polite grilling…

The opening question was about why he’d set up Operation Safe Haven, as publicised last July (eg. see Daily Mail article). His answer is that it’s in gratitude for and repayment of his debt to Christians because they’d helped him and his family to escape Austria, as well as when problems arose in pre-war Britain.

As the Operations objective is being purely to assist Iraqi and Syrian Christians, Sackur  objects by referring to USA’s reservations about helping and says such help should be humanitarian only: his work shouldn’t be religiously selective but include Muslims too because they’re also suffering.

Weidenfeld recognises it’s an important point and counters by referring to his inter-faith work in improving relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims. The presenter then pushes for the logical consequence of such cooperation by rescuing those of any faith.

But the guest is candid and forthright in saying Christians in those lands “get a raw deal, they don’t get sufficient support” and because of his personal experience wants to repay them.

“Let me put it bluntly” retorts Sackur and posits a position of his guest refusing to help  those in the migrating masses who are not Christians.

Weidenfeld is forthright about this ‘academic question’, reminds him of the Communist and Nazi persecutions and that nothing is being done by the Western world to help the ancient Christian world. He contradicts Sackur’s typically BBC pro-Palestinian and anti-Christian moronic mind-set,

“A great deal is being done for the Muslims…logistically they’re in the situation and their safe havens are pretty close by and a huge amount of money is available for them – but the Christians get the raw deal: that’s what I’m saying!”

Not content, Sackur pushes his point by referring to Europe and problems here only for his guest to be equally blunt,

“The Western world is in a bad moral shape and, I’m afraid, I blame the leader of the Western world, President, Obama for a lot of what’s happening now”

“You can’t surely blame him for Europe’s failure to lead on this (migrant) crisis…?” blurts the Beeb’s man.

“I blame him for having created situations in the Middle-East and undulating, uncertain, weak foreign policy that has done a great deal to bring about this present situation. I could go into great detail on this…”

As regards Europe and jihadist attacks they discuss the safety of Jews, the call for their return to their original, ancient homeland (now the state of Israel), anti-Semitism and the roots of terrorism. In view of the peer’s connections and experience in Germany a good discussion develops. Regarding anti-Semitism he thinks,

“There are two roots of anti-Semitism: a religious root and an economical root….the first is no longer valid for people don’t say, “You killed the Saviour” – so that root died out in the 18th Century. The economic root is also not so valid because, if you look at the phone directories of most European capitals many (Jewish) bankers, lawyers and dentists no longer exist there because of Auschwitz.

“So it is Jihadism – the hatred of Jews brought about by radical Islam. There’s no question about that! It’s anti the Jewish state, it’s anti-Zionism – that’s what it is really.”

Sackur notices his disquiet over the Obama administration and asks what’s made him so angry. Having spent time in the States, Weidenfeld responds that,

“…he is someone who has no talent or knowledge about foreign affairs. He may be a good orator, possibly quite well equipped to deal with home affairs, but he hasn’t got a feeling for foreign affairs. He is naïve. He builds up Putin into a position of where he’s a mixture of Disraeli and Bismarck as arbiter in the Middle-East; in Syria he made him the man for opening the debate with Iran to his own disadvantage – and I think he has weakened, he has alienated, some of our allies to a point of great bitterness. So I make him responsible for a lot of what’s going on today in the Middle-East.”

The presenter offers, as though speaking for that administration, their objection based upon delivery of democratic mandate, getting out of the M-East and making a deal with Iran, which earns the peer’s gentle but forthright rebuke,

“With Iran it is a very dangerous situation now because – although there may be a way of curbing the atomic ambitions – you’re dealing with a theocratic government of extreme violence – and the present president just has a better table-manner than his predecessor – but I think that by filling their coffers now you make it possible for them to support Hezbollah, to support all kinds of extremists and you’re probably going to have another intifada or full-fledged war before long because the Iranians are again going to be on the warpath.”

Encouraging theme confirmed and continues…

Flying puzzles - Nokhoog BuchachonFascinating! Yet is it not too much to hope for, or be surprised by? After all, we’ve often noted the Lord teaches us through ‘coincidences’ of repetition, as though He’s placing pieces into a jigsaw as scripturally outlined herein.

Friday’s Lion Bite continues the theme I’d mused upon the previous day about our being heavenly-minded, as in Neville Johnson’s message summarised herein. I especially like the Matt 6:33 quotation because I’d recognised it even in the depths of darkness in false beliefs as expressing my search for the truth of God. (That may be what the speaker implied who brought a direct personal word about my having completed a 40-year cycle and a promise soon to be fulfilled, as here.)

So first, read Friday’s as below and, after having read and ‘chewed’, consider today’s which reiterates, and thereby emphasises, Thursday’s on our need to ‘See!.: Continue reading

Lion Bites reveal encouraging theme from the Lord

Lion_Roars_email_logo_HIGHERIf you’re a regular subscriber to daily ‘Lion Bites’ from Glasgow Prophetic Centre maybe you’ve noticed their team picks up specific themes from the Lord?  Often they’re at the top of my email’s in-tray listing and so it’s first in my attention. Occasionally an individual word harmonises with other email. Often, I notice the thread of a theme in a tapestry the Lord is weaving through the Glasgow team.

Their vision of circling eagles in Gathering of Eagles hit me direct in view of its personal importance, as revealed in footnote links. The exhortation to focus our prophetical eyes motivated me to tackle outstanding commentaries upon prophetic words and messages Charlie Shamp and Neville Johnson had delivered. Continue reading

Neville Johnson 2: the ‘BIGGER picture’ of post-blood moon era

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:28-32)

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.  (Ephesians 2:4-7) [Scriptures courtesy of Thomas Nelson Inc and Blue Letter Bible]

[Those introductory verses were jotted before last week’s quiet day that ‘just happened’ to touch upon them, as in the previous post.]

Hopefully the meditative morning coffee and my sharing about last week’s significant quiet day will act as contemplative interludes bridging my comments on Charlie Shamp and Neville Johnson, and between two posts on Neville’s August visit to California.

Anyone concerned about Neville’s dismissal of pre-Tribulation rapture, as in his first message, is directed to an excellent discussion on this ‘American’ theology by Nelson Walters in Simplified Evidence for Rapture Timing.

After the warnings in his first message, let’s now consider the more positive follow-up in session 6.

Neville starts by saying,

“Exciting! – We really need to know what we’re fighting for. You know, it’s not good enough to get into a fight unless we really know what we’re really fighting for. Right?

“So we need to see the BIGGER picture! It’s important to understand that… What are we fighting for? …What is it about?

“You’re fighting for a new America that will usher in the Millennium Age of Christ – a brand new world…a world where Jesus will be the head of and running it!”

He refers to having been blessed with seeing glimpses or excerpts of the Millennium: an incredible world. However, according to Revelation there’s a lot of cleaning up to be done, defiled cities will fall because they can’t be allowed to enter the Millennium.

“We are fighting for this planet. God gave this planet to Adam but he lost it and we’re going to retake it! His assignment was to bring heaven to earth…

“You’ve got to see the bigger picture – this is all worth fighting for. What we’re fighting for is the Millennium. Decadence will not be allowed to exist in the Millennium!”

Notes on the Message

As in part 1, this selection of my notes (1) gives a flavour of what Neville says and (2) enables comparison with Charlie Shamp’s remarks on 2015-20 and scriptural context of the recent blood moon as well as mine on the Age to Come (all as herein). For ease of reference [numbers] denote approx. elapsed time.:

  1. We have an incredible future: God is going to fill this world with His presence and His people and it will be better than heaven – “And that’s just a beginning!” [6]
  2. 1969 moon landing’s ‘leap’: prophetic sign for mankind as Charismatic movement followed that shook Catholic church – and Neville’s! [8]
  3. What now? God’s signpost in Solar System: ‘New Horizons’ spacecraft took 9yrs to get to Pluto, 9th planet at end of Solar System = we’re getting to the end of this dispensation. No 9 used 49 (7×7) times in Bible and conveys meaning of finality – God’s completeness [12]. 9 = end of an era & beginning of judgement. Israel’s last king reigned 9 yrs: “he that has ears to hear”. [17]
  4. WE’RE NOW ON FINAL LAP TO CONSUMMATION OF THE AGE – to be 7 times greater outpouring of Holy Spirit than at Pentecostal birth of Church. [15]
  5. Church is appointed to tribulation (as now?: RB) but not wrath of God, when the world will be physically changed – we’re coming back to a perfect world. [18]
  6. “The Lord began to speak to me about how we’re to change, to be transformed by being more heavenly minded…next step is holiest place of all and needs our going through transfiguration…Jesus was transfigured in His flesh and it changed Him for new things and we’re to be physically transformed so we can handle powers of the Age to Come!” The more heavenly minded we become the less the attraction of the world. [21]
  7. 2 Cor 5:20, Phil 3:20, Col 3:1 – As Christ’s ambassadors our citizenship is of heaven and, being risen with Christ, we should seek those things which are above. [25]
  8. God gave us the privilege of coming here and we’ve got to make our lives count for the time we’ve got left – can’t/mustn’t lose sight of that! [29]
  9. This is KEY – it must become a daily reality, we must let our minds be renewed, lose grip with earth, thereby heavenly realm opens and becomes accessible. [30]
  10. We’re fighting for restoration of this planet and bringing it back under rule of God. [32]
  11. It’s what we become – not have done – that counts ie. how much we become like Jesus and the Age to Come [34] determines our role in eons to come [43].
  12. As evil matures in the earth and will be reaped – the gross darkness, people will be terrified and come to our light. [52]
  13. This year’s Feast of Tabernacles (28th Sept) is going to bring change. [54]
  14. Jesus is going to reveal Himself through His people first before He returns – check scripture re. disciples going to Feast of Tabernacles without Jesus, for He went in secret but disciples openly. [55]
  15. Tabernacles ushers in new dimension that begins at this blood moon – door will open to combine fullness of Passover and Pentecost and ushers in new dimension. [1:00]
  16. The mind needs to be sanctified and renewed by removal of untruths learned in our lives – needs to be consecration of mind to Lord like never before. [1:40]
  17. If we’re to enter Tabernacles it will require greater dedication and consecration to  open whole new level of consciousness and physical conditioning before powers of Age to Come open up. [1:43]

On these matters I’d draw attention to an interactive vision Neville had in 2010, on video staring at 1:44:20:

“…in which I found myself on a boat at sea – and it was as real as this (pointing to platform )…and I was at the back of the boat and I looked at the front of the boat and Jesus was standing at the front of the boat and I thought, ‘That’s ok, the Lord’s here – everything’s fine!’

“I was watching as the Lord opened a very ornate chest…I saw Him take an instrument out of the chest and it was a sextant…(explains this non-satellite’s use for finding ship’s position at sea).

“It went ‘click’…the Lord locked the sextant on the horizon and then He looked up and went ‘click’, taking a bearing on a star – and I knew that star was Venus, don’t ask me how I knew, but I knew it was Venus…

“I noticed there were 14 segments on the sextant. I looked at the Lord and He looked at me and He said:

“The time spoken in the Word regarding the Morning Star is beginning NOW!”

“I thought ‘ok’ and He said,

“The Morning Star will arise over the next 14 years and become brighter and brighter.” He said,

“I will arise in My people like never before, and at evening time it shall be light.”

“I knew that last was a scripture but couldn’t figure out where until I came out of this – it’s Zecharia 14:7… but what does it mean? He said to me,

“Transfiguration will start in many of My people and they will become truly lights of the world.”

Zecharia 14 refers to ‘the Day of the Lord’ and in the NKJV verse 7 reads,

It shall be one day
Which is known to the Lord
Neither day nor night.
But at evening time it shall happen
That it will be light.

The Word of Prophecy

Only now do I notice that Neville talks about the ‘Morning Star’ quoting a reference of personal relevance that I’d completely forgotten about. At 1:47:55 he reads 2 Peter 1:19 as follows:

“We have a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawns that the star rises in your heart.”

[That particular verse was one of the very few referred to by the initiatory mystical group I studied under before I was rescued from Satan’s domain. Presumptuously they used it to suppose they’d attained a special level of transcendent knowledge. But it was nothing of the sort compared with true prophecy that comes by God’s Holy Spirit. It’s abundantly obvious had the verse’s full context been considered. Shortly after the Lord rescued me I asked Him about that group as I opened my Bible. It fell open and I was transfixed by 2 Peter 2:1 – ie. just a few verses on from those abused ones, as told in this part of my testimony.]

Now, Neville asks what verse 19 means and reminds us that Peter was referring to his awesome experience years previously when he saw the transfiguration of Jesus. (As  in accompanying text of verses 15 to 21 shown at the foot of this post.)

Apostle Peter maintains his mission is true and valid because; 1) he witnessed Jesus’ glorious transfiguration, 2) he has the word of prophecy bestowed by Holy Spirit and which is not for private interpretation (as that group presumed!). Neville notices the juxtaposition of those two principles and submits that they’re not only relevant to that vision of 2010 but also specifically reveal what the Lord’s now doing in His people.

Therefore, I submit that Neville’s profound message is worthy of careful consideration and prayerful application.

2 Peter 1:15-21

‘Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. 16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.’ [Authorised KJV, courtesy BibleGateway.com]

Not blogging but the Lord confirms the current theme

Puzzle in sky - Idea goAwestruck!  ‘Pieces’ of an ‘invisible jigsaw’ showered around me last Thursday. That’s the day normally spent blogging before weekends offline – but not so last week. Had it been as usual I’d have downloaded what’s in mind as a bridge between notes on two sessions by Neville Johnson. But the Lord more than made up for that in what He was to provide.

whitehill-chase-04Last Thursday was a day’s retreat with the contemplative focus being ‘Sit, Walk, Stand’ at the nearby Acorn Christian Healing Foundation. ‘Quiet Days’ are ‘an opportunity to lay burdens aside and to allow God to minister to your heart, mind and body through His Holy Spirit’.

But I went with an agenda! – to catch up on several scriptures quoted in my blogs that week. Yet it seemed wiser not to overlook and speed by them, thereby missing what the Lord may have for me. My reading covers many fronts and blogging takes a great deal of time, so those verses had been plucked and stuck down without proper assimilation in my mind and spirit.  I wanted to digest them decently in peace and quiet.

To say I was stunned by three events that day is no understatement – and what I’d fully intended blogging got amazingly augmented by the day’s events!

Before entering the chapel a few of us were looking at photos of paintings done during the recent creativity day. As the others chatted I had a sense of the Lord building upon  that centre’s purpose for its new season. Upon entering the modern chapel, however, this would be confirmed in a surprising way..

Holy Fire

Burning Bush at Acorn

My eyes almost popped out upon being seated when I saw the limb of a tree placed in the centre of the floor. In its midst was a flickering flame, albeit imitation, from a brazier placed within the branches.

The reason chaplain Elizabeth Knifton had dragged this old branch into the chapel (and swept up its consequential trail of bits) was because of what had happened during that Tuesday’s powerful service for healing. Then, she’d had a distinct impression of the Lord saying the ground they’re standing on is holy and, therefore, to remove shoes – as in Moses’ encounter with the Lord at the burning bush.

For my part, however, what I’d previously noticed outside and thus mused upon during a service several months ago had actually come about. Also, Elizabeth’s explanation of what happened and why she’d made this presentation reflected my earlier thoughts!

fire-angels_300wDuring that earlier service I’d seen outside a pile of logs trimmed from the surrounding woods in the grounds. It reminded me of Gary Beaton’s photo of a pile of smoking logs but which had apparently shown flame-like angels. I was prompted to pray that such a spiritual fire would come inside the chapel and become a beacon of light in the region.

Sit, Walk, Stand

Next, Elizabeth introduced her opening devotional talk based on Paul’s superlative letter to the church at Ephesus. In teaching about our posture of sitting with Jesus Christ in heavenly places she soon went into the heart of my intended introduction to Neville’s message on the urgent need for us to be ‘heavenly minded’!!

Beginning with, ‘For we are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared for us in advance for today’ (Eph 2:10) Elizabeth went to preceding verses, ‘God raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus so that in coming ages He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace and kindness towards us in Christ Jesus’ (Eph 2:6-7).

I took particular notice that she connected verses from a different letter with this theme but which are personally relevant because they’re directly related to my testimony:

‘For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves’ (Col 1:13-14) – see Rescued from Satan by the Lord of Hosts.

Furthermore, the second pre-lunch message on walking in the Spirit not only mirrored the scriptures in my recent blogs but also referred at length to Enoch’s having pleased God by walking with him! (I’d underlined related verses in those posts.)

Personal Ministry

Flying up in the stratosphere after the morning’s events, a period of personal ministry brought the third major blessing of the day: although I was away from blogging it tied into what I would have written about – a heavenly perspective and becoming heavenly-minded. Wonderful how our Father knows our most intimate desires and thoughts, and fulfils them when aligned with His will.

After sharing my excitement with the Spirit-led chaplain and a ministry leader, these two handmaidens of the Lord prayed some scriptures over and into me. First, and perhaps most important are the verses describing the glorious visionary encounter Daniel had experienced, as in Daniel 10:10-21. (Very interesting this refers to the prince of Persia (Iran) and Daniel’s people, the Jews – demonic issues still continuing today!! AND I’d recently blogged with great difficulty about Jews searching for their true Messiah.)

Also with a relevant bearing are the vision of Isaiah (chapter 6) before the throne of God and his mission; Apostle John’s anointing as a visionary writer (Rev 1:10-19); a double reference to Joshua’s mission plus another from Exodus.

Confirmation of Scriptures

Teamwork by Franky242Although I’m used to frequent ‘God-incidents’ in my life and blogging, it’s impossible to become blasé. Such events are always surprising – and praiseworthy! The latest repeated and thereby confirmed the relevancy of scriptures and concepts blogged only days beforehand – AND of what would have been written that very day!!

Purely for information, they are:

  • rescued from dominion of darkness (re. 1st session & Colossians 1)
  • eagles gathering and prophetic gifting (re. personal refc to Book of Joshua)
  • the ‘army of God’, as in Joel (re. refc to Joshua and thus his army)
  • prophetic word to ‘invite My fire’ (re. logs & burning bush)
  • Enoch and Daniel as herein (re: ministry refc to Dan 10 vision)
  • Revelation and the ‘Age to Come’ (re: ministry refc to John)
  • meditation on Romans 8 (re: walking in the Spirit and Jesus)
  • Neville Johnson on Enoch, the bigger heavenly picture (re: Quiet day).

Further Reading:

Apostle Paul’s remarkable ministry in Ephesus is covered in-depth by Keith Lannon in  Management of the Miraculous: Ephesus is TakenHis introductory premise closes as follows (with emphases mine):

‘The depth and totality of the work accomplished by Paul in Ephesus, as well as rippling throughout the whole of Asia, was such that we know and can see that in the last book of the Bible, it was acknowledged in heaven as a work that was especially significant amongst the entire world-wide church at that time. I see it as if the entire life of Paul was a learning curve in lots of directions that led up to a period of ministry which by its shock and significance, changed the world at that time.  Paul had seen the sick healed before, but not on the scale of Ephesus. He had cast out demons before, but seen nothing like the witches and Wizards that were delivered in the former “City of Diana of the Ephesians”. He had pointed out people from the crowd before and ministered to them by the leading of the Spirit, but not as intense as in Acts 19. It was such an incredibly solid and comprehensive time of church building, that when the Lord Jesus gave John the apocalyptic prophecy of the book of Revelation, he only addressed the main seven church centres that were created and established by Paul’s work in this particular mission, at this time. No other church was mentioned or acknowledged by the risen Christ as He stood amongst the candlesticks. In fact, no other candlesticks were referred to apart from those in Asia. We are talking of serious culture and population impact with the gospel that is second to none in history, with a depth of foundation laying, and an awesome height of people/church building, that I am convinced has been unparalleled since. We are examining a period of missionary work that had heaven’s stamp of approval like none other….’

The reason for my request is to enable you to receive some upcoming interesting posts  as soon as they’re published. Are you aware of what prompted me to start emailing just a few friends and church leaders in early 2009?  I explained my reason,

‘Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt 13:36). So I went to check scripture, but upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW’. (Parts 1 & 2 of The Endgame is now in play refer.)

For the next couple of years I regularly circulated two or three emails monthly. Events began to pick up speed in 2011-12 and, after I launched this blog, they escalated and then rapidly accelerated during 2014-15.

Therefore, you may wish to receive earlier, rather than later, blogs that may be useful in your monitoring biblically-related events as well as contemporary prophetical material.
