Earlier this week Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival informed me a prophetic word brought by Wendy Alec back in 2005 is a ‘Word for now’, especially because it’s highly encouraging. As there were things in the blog-pipeline I put it aside to ponder.
So in the meantime I printed, re-read and mulled over A Vision for Great Britain and considered how some parts may have been fulfilled. Would you read it with me and seek the Lord?
It’s a lengthy, deeply stirring prophecy and I was especially struck by,
‘Then the Lord showed me a large lion – and He said – “This lion represents the nation of Great Britain” – And it was a shocking sight – for where the lion should have been filled out and sleek and gleaming – it was almost a skeleton – and its mane was barely visible – and its coat was covered in mange – and its roar which should have shaken the nations in its power and in its ferocity was strangled and barely audible. And the Lord said “This represents both the glory of this nation at present and the state of My Church as a whole in Great Britain. And I saw in great letters – the words – “THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN AND THE LION SHALL ROAR AGAIN“.’
Also, I recalled last year’s posts about the Lion of Judah, especially appearing at Ffald-y-Brenin as told in Vision of a lion – four faces of God.
Now, this afternoon, it just so happens ‘by coincidence’ from ‘over the Pond’ that upon opening WordPress Reader I noticed the latest post by Tony in Tucson dated today. It reads as follows (click title for original):
‘Below is a vision I had 5 years ago:
‘I had a very tragic vision on 07/25/2010. In the vision I could see many preachers, their pulpits were lined up next to each other,they were very learned men, some were in suits and some were in robes,and they were preaching to a very large …congregation. The eyes of everyone in the congregation and their attention were on these preachers. In back of these preachers I could see Jesus on the cross. Not one of the preachers ever mentioned the cross in his preaching and no one in the congregation ever looked at the cross, their eyes were on the preachers and they were attentive to the “wisdom” that was being taught by them.
‘This Thanksgiving morning, 11/26/2015, I had a dream just before waking:
I saw a preacher standing at a pulpit. I saw the congregation seated ready to hear his sermon. Then I saw him open the Bible and it seemed that he opened it exactly in the middle. Then I saw an incredible site. Just as he opened the Bible I saw a lion leap from the pages and onto the podium, stand to the preacher’s right and begin to roar. The roar that come from this lion was like no earthly lion. The roar was so loud that the building shook. The attention of the people, as one might now guess was no longer on the preacher but instead was now on the lion. This Lion, I believe, was none other than the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
‘I find the contrast here amazing. In my vision of 2010, no one paid attention to the lamb of God suffering and dying on a cross for our sins. The people’s attention was on the pastors and their wisdom. In the dream I just had, the same would have been repeated except for the fact that the Lion began to roar. I believe that the Lord is bringing pulpit worship to an end.’
Amen, my American friend.
Fascinating that two prophetic words of several years ago have resurfaced almost simultaneously – and on America’s Thanksgiving!! (Its origins lie in the non-conformist Pilgrim Father’s celebration of Sukkot in 1621 – final para of Puritans were more Jewish than Protestants refers.)
Surely the Lord is indeed speaking to His Church…
Update 1st Dec: Patrick Schatzline tells me when he was in Singapore the Lord spoke to him about the Lion roaring! ( Remnant International Ministries).
