Paws-4-thought: the Queen, prophecies and jigsaw pieces

IspyLast night it popped into mind that the previous post about Her Majesty’s Christmas broadcast omitted the pertinent part of her hereditary title: ‘Fidei Defensor’ – Defender of the Faith!

STOP, PAUSE, REWIND < < back 500 years…and then fast forward > > to 20th Century England.

‘Fidei Defensor’ was the papal honour bestowed on young King Henry VIII in 1521 for his literary defence of the sacraments (ie. including marriage!) and papal supremacy against Protestant ideas of Martin Luther. However, lack of a male heir to the throne and Henry’s desire to remarry brought a break with the Roman church. That Latin title was revoked but Parliament then conferred ‘Defender of the Faith’ upon Henry VIII and subsequent monarchs as protectors of the Anglican faith in being Supreme Governors of the Church of England; that is, above the Archbishops of Canterbury and York – see Wikipedia.

A little nostalgia now: I recall a very small toy model coach with team of horses as a gift from my grandfather in preparation for celebrating the Queen’s coronation on 2nd June 1953. There was also model scenery between which to drive the golden coach. Parents and family were getting excited. My father made a large heraldic shield coloured in the Union Jack, from which three similar but small flags could proudly fly when hung outside our house. And he even bought a television and invited neighbours to watch the whole event in black and white vision.

A few years later my school teacher proudly told the headmistress about a story I’d written along with my picture of a RCMP ‘Mountie’ on horseback chasing a criminal – ‘The Mountie always gets his man!’ Consequently, he won a bravery award from Queen Elizabeth II in person. This story may have been inspired by TV cowboy stories and accounts of her state visit to Canada in 1956.

What I felt in my spirit upon hearing the recent Christmas message and the evening’s news announcement was so similar to what I was sensing during and after our visiting Royal Windsor in Berkshire in 2011. For some reason the view of the castle from a few miles away in the Great Park caught my attention. (Little did I know that Dr Sharon Stone and husband Greg were relocating to Old Windsor.)

That impression was noted in ‘Paws 4 Thought’ of 28th June 2012 when blogging about A special town in the Thames Valley (note photo of cloud of UK over town). Therein, I refer to my chat with Sharon in February of that year:

“After talking about her class in Windsor an image of the Castle’s famous round tower came to mind. This was followed by the notion that its crenellated battlements looked like the teeth of a giant cogwheel which could fit into some sort of invisible socket where earth could get plugged into heaven. 

“It’s a little hard to explain, but then the thought dropped into mind that such engagement would enable the heavenly kingdom to ‘wind up’ our earthly kingdom, or ‘queen-dom’, for the Lord’s purposes (eg. revival) – rather like putting a key into and winding up a clockwork toy.”

I’d suggest we keep these musings in mind when considering current prophetic words for the United Kingdom.

  1. Dear Richard, I’m afraid your Queen has taken herself out of the fight. Great Britain, and all the western nations she has founded, is under judgement. God wants repentance, before he will ever bring revival.
    Who promotes revival instead of repentance? Watch out for the prophets of Balaam.
    Hear me out. I will explain the signs, and the word to back it up.
    In June 2013 two things happened in your country; Great Britain celebrated the 60th year of the Queen’s coronation and the Queen signed the same sex marriage bill, giving it royal approval. She was the head of the Church of England, and she broke her coronation oath to defend the faith. This left her out of step with the Anglican church, and the Church gave up the fight.

    God waited until October of that year, and then he sent the first of many storms. That storm was named after Jude, the brother of Jesus. It was also nick-named “Christian.’ There was a message in that storm for Christians in the UK.
    The first element of that message, after the Church of England’s capitulation; Jesus said “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13
    This message is for the official church.
    The second element was after a crane collapsed on top of the Cabinet Office in London during the Jude storm. The Cabinet Office supports the Prime Minister and Cabinet of the UK.
    This confirmed the words of David Silvester, the politician who got expelled from the UKIP party after saying: “The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war.” Blaming the prime minister David Cameron for the bad weather, he added: “It is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods.”
    God confirmed David Silvester’s message, and will continue to.
    The third element is the words in the book of Jude, and it’s for those people God addresses as “friends”. In John 15 he says that “friends are those who do what he commands. He does not call his friends servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, everything that He learned from the Father He had made known to us.”
    This is the message from Jude; “Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.”
    The book of Jude is the smallest book in the Bible – but it packs a bigger punch than the storm named after it. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jude
    Jude was the brother of Jesus. He also warned about old and new apostles, saying “there are those who run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit” – prophesying for profit.
    God wants his remnant, his church, to stand up and contend for the faith, and watch out for false apostles.
    Friends in Great Britain, there is a King higher than your monarch and your government. If you humble yourselves, asking for forgiveness for what the Queen and the government did, he will hear you.
    The final message; “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.
    The position for the defender of the faith in England is vacant. Friends, it’s up to you to contend for the faith. You can do it! A city on a hill can not be hid. May you stand up for your land.
    Here’s some background stuff.
    I blogged about the St Jude storm two years ago here:
    https://jobloggz.wordpress.com/2014/02/13/biblical-floods-in-uk-unbiblical-laws-and-acts-of-god/
    We in NZ were subjected to earthquake warnings after same sex marriage was passed into law.
    https://jobloggz.wordpress.com/category/signs/earthquakes-signs/
    I went before the elders at my church and begged God for forgiveness on behalf of the land. I know other people did too. I believe God heard us from heaven. The big quake hasn’t come yet.
    God bless, Jo

    • Thank you Jo not only for these good points, of which I take serious note, but also for taking valuable time to make them. I was dismayed and deeply disappointed that HM didn’t veto the SSM law. That would have brought a huge constitutional crisis, perhaps bigger than her uncle’s abdication and would have brought a charlie in to take her place.(No wonder Neville Johnson claims he tried persuading her to change succession to throne!)

      Even so, like the Lord used sinner king David perhaps He may be doing likewise with Lizzie and through His kindness bringing repentance (Rom 2.4). We don’t know HM’s prayer-life and He alone knows her heart. So we need to be wary of judging.

      Having seen a ‘turning of the tide’ – even in Co’E! – I’m conscious somewhere in the back of my mind of the claims to changes happening and of a possible way forward the Lord has for UK. My post alludes to a transcript I’m checking through which may have a direct bearing on the situation…and there’s other material on the weather.

      Thanks again and bless you.
