7th Anniversary of Watching

Courtsey StoonnDedicated to personal and cyber friends and readers who’ve followed my musings over the years – kindly bear with any repetition below.

On the last day of February seven years ago I emailed some friends in various churches about how I’d been stunned upon opening my Bible. Having been in touch about the previous year’s events in Lakeland, Florida, we continued chatting occasionally. However, my attention was suddenly directed to look at Biblical prophecies in much more depth.

We will see how this may be relevant to the previous post but first, in celebrating that date, let me repeat the opening of that two-part email (click title to read in full – and I hope the many links below don’t cause readers any scrolling problems):

The Endgame Is Now In Play

‘Dear Friends – further to Rev’d Bill’s [author William Smith] recent request re Christian Freedom, may I offer some observations upon our times and, in another message, suggest a way forward?

‘Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt 13:36-43). 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!!

‘Hence, my previous remarks about a sifting of the Church – in preparation for a rapid ‘sHifting’? Jesus urged His disciples to look out for and observe signs of the times. Regarding their questions about His return at the end of this Age, the earliest Gospel account has Jesus stressing 7 times, Watch…be alert…on your guard (Mark 13). Matthew 24 reports Jesus saying 4 times, Watch…and when you see…” followed by the parables of the burglar and of the virgins:> “Don’t be caught napping!” [Is the Church still asleep?] Luke’s account has, “Be always on the watch…” (at 21:36) and chapter 12 has sections on watchfulness and interpreting the times. In each Gospel Jesus commands, Learn the lesson of the fig tree…”. Also, the Apostles went on to give more indicators (Acts 3:20-1, Hebrews 12:26-7, 2 Peter 3, 2 Timothy 3 and the first and second letters to the Thessalonians).

So, let’s watch closely what’s happening here and globally….’

wheat-and-tares[Last Thursday I referred to that parable when I commented upon a contribution at the close of  What is the Gospel of the Kingdom?.  Author Nelson Walters replied that he intends blogging on it soon!  Upon re-reading the above ‘7 times’ repetition of Jesus it’s fascinating that Matthew 13 pops up 7 years later! Now, is it coincidence or ‘God-incidence’? You tell me.]

That email went on to remind readers of the increasing difficulties fellow believers were facing in their workplaces because of political intolerance and surveillance. [This still pertains, eg. the Court appeal of senior NHS therapist Victoria Wasteney outrageously disciplined for giving a Muslim colleague a book!! – but better news on Christian political campaigner Alan Craig being reinstated and all charges dropped against pensioner/street preacher Michael Jones who was imprisoned for exposing ISIS!! – many more cases here. Breaking News – secret policing of Christian student leads to expulsion!]

In the follow-up email I shared an open vision of the rotten state of our society and that Christians need to take a stand upon the Rock that is Christ. I quoted Bible teacher David Pawson’s idea that such ‘persecution’ will strengthen and encourage Christians, and that Muslims are shaming us with our lack of zeal.

Prophet Daniel: Europe’s 666, Obama in Cairo etc 

Occasional emails were to follow focusing upon current events in the Middle East not only from a scriptural perspective, of which my friends were acquainted, but also from little-known facts as well as omissions by mainstream media.

Thus to President Obama’s landmark Cairo Speech to the Muslim world and I torpedoed his claims of being a historian and Christian. Observers will be familiar with those matters and Potus’ great antipathy towards Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu, and hence the consequential collapse of America’s influence in that sphere. (See that link for updates)

However, on two consecutive days 13 months later (12 & 13 May 2010) there came an interesting combination of events: Netanyahu quoted the New Testament against PA chief negotiator’s insults over the Jewish nature of Jerusalem – Obama turned a new leaf on Israel! (Details here.) Interesting that only last week Bibi had occasion to correct David Cameron over Jerusalem, as noted in previous post.

Acceleration and Blogging

From the early days of reporting, my private emails were mainly based upon monitoring developments in what I termed the ‘Ezekiel 38 Alliance’, otherwise known as Gog-Magog, as well as Zecharia 12 re Jerusalem (see Today’s Importance in History‘).

https://richards-watch.org/2011/11/24/key-to-foretelling-the-future/But Biblically-related and prophesied events were unfolding rapidly and the Lord prompted me to start blogging to a wider readership, which was launched in November 2011. The first blogs’ background and testimony of a near death-revelation of hell served to introduce me. Also, I told Why I’m on the Lookout (including use of a ‘time machine’ operated by literary licence, and our Time Lord’s Key to Foretelling the Future), notified my earliest readers about non-mainstream media sources used (Not the 10 o’clock News) and introduced the theory of cycles of time in 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles.  September 2011’s dream of The Kingdom being set up in the UK was also recounted.

It’s again noteworthy that 50 months ago posts on PM Netanyahu setting up Bible study at Home and on PM Cameron ‘Doing God’ featured in the first month of blogging!!

Contemporary Prophecy and Healings

Within months I began blogging about healing in view of a furore over prayers for healing being performed on the streets and covered issues on that as well as The Bay of The Holy Spirit healing revival. So a main menu hub with many sub-pages was established on Jesus & Miracles, which also asks ‘Do You Know Jesus?’ for any visitors to whom He may be unfamiliar.

In view of the blog’s main focus it was essential to set up an instructional hub Prophecies & Visions, which includes a Library of contemporary words of prophecy and prophetical visions

‘Invisible Jigsaw’

Puzzle Globe and Book by ThanunkornThat was the title I first wanted to use for this blog but at that time I wasn’t able to find or to create a suitable graphic. An increasing range of material encouraged me to diversify my blogging and in a way opened me more to what the Lord was doing and communicating. It was rather like His displaying pieces of an invisible jigsaw.

On several occasions other folk would contribute various prophetic words and their timing was more than coincidental. In particular, a lengthy string of personal events cropped up in connection with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Bells and I had to start taking these kind of insights seriously. These and many ‘God-incidents’ were like jigsaw pieces.

These events got so frequent that rather than having to repeat myself for the benefit of new readers it was more helpful to write brief introductions to this material. As the blog’s format may differ on tablets and smartphones to that for desktop screens, maybe some readers are unaware of these outlines buried within the blog’s main menu.

For ease of reference, those outlines are: Cycles & Time > 1 Eternity and Prophecy – 2 The Nature of Time – 3 Cycles and the Bible – 4 The Natural Year – 5 Historic Aprils for USA & Israel : God-incidents & Jigsaws >  6 God-incidents – 7 Invisible Jigsaw.

Therefore, I took particular notice of ‘spooky’ events on two anniversaries of this blog. As told here, Iran ‘coincidentally’ repeated what I’d seen in mid-1980’s – rehearsal of an attack upon Jerusalem. That was my introduction as a non-Christian to Bible prophecy!

Time Comes Around – again

Therefore, I was most amused upon the teaching On Engaging Time turning up recently! Also, 7 represents a cycle of completion and closure for another to begin. So I’ve been mulling over what the Lord may have in store for me next and where my focus should be.

Double-confirmation of what I was sensing came from my trusty friends in Glasgow: time to go ‘deeper and higher’!  Hoping and praying that’s for you too…

Be mightily blessed by and in The Name Above ALL Names…

Thank you so much Lord. Thine be the glory and praise alone!

Update: Nelson Walters has published Wheat and the Tares. When Does It Happen?

PS. Never would it have crossed my mind when examining opposing opinion on the wheat and tares that 7 years later I’d have scribbled 1020 emails, pages and posts, gained a few hundred regular readers and nearly quarter of a million hits. All-time most popular posts are Dr Sharon Stone’s Prophetic words for 2014-16 for UK & Ireland, the word on a New Move of God for the UK brought by Heidi Baker and then Dr Sharon’s word for 2013, with the Library collection following closely.

Netanyahu and Jerusalem mayor correct Cameron

Prime Ministerial meeting 2011 (Jewish Chronicle)

A quick update to the previous post wherein I drew to a close by referring to David Cameron’s criticism of Israel’s settlements around East Jerusalem. The British PM is a friend of Israel yet answered a Parliamentary Question about conditions in Jerusalem in a highly critical vein (see Independent).

According to The Jerusalem Post, Bibi’s brief response during a political gathering was to remind everyone of Cameron’s undoubted friendship and said Europe should remember that Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem prevents Islamic State and Hamas from burning holy sites in the capital, as they have done elsewhere. In addition to that prevention he said, “only Israeli sovereignty ensures Arab residents of the city have roads, clinics, places of employment and all the other means of normal life that their brothers do not enjoy throughout the Middle East”.

Jerusalem’s mayor Nir Barkat was the first official to respond to Cameron’s criticism with several detailed corrections about the city and its organisation and which may be read in that JP article. Also, ‘Barkat took the PA and surrounding Muslim countries to task for not meaningfully aiding their own people, while the Israeli government has provided a far higher standard of living for Arab residents’.

In closing let’s note the British Government’s commendable action against BDS (Boycott Divestment & Sanctions) movement by issuing guidance preventing public bodies from imposing a boycott on a member of the World Trade Organization to which Israel belongs. According to Melanie Philips local boycotts breach the WTO Government Procurement Agreement, which demands that all suppliers are treated equally. (Her Facebook has in-depth report. See also Carolyn Glick in my Europe’s…illegal trade war on Israel.)

Political potpourri on USA & Middle East

Hand with News icon - WatcharakunUSA detains renowned UK peacemaker as major terror threat! – Obama eventually meets Jordan’s king – French official anti-Semitism continues to stir hornet’s nest…

[OED: ‘potpourri’ – origin French ‘rotten pot’]

Yesterday – 2nd item

Facebook is weird – well my blog’s page is. It doesn’t work like normal personal profiles and timelines as it got set up as a business page. I comment on some Facebook pages but can’t on others, and although I ‘like’ others’ pages I’ve yet to find a way to get their updates. So I check Facebook occasionally. Yesterday was the first time this week and I was nudged to check what Canon Andrew White may have posted on his page. I was amazed to read his latest:

“23 February: WELL IT IS NOW OFFICIAL I AM A MAJOR TERRORIST THREAT.

SC-Pic1 andrew white“Not only did I have problems in Israel the other day the Americans have assured me I am a major terror threat to the USA and they have given me a piece of paper to prove it. They let me in this time but next time I have got to get official approval before I come. So I have not even got to the Nashville meeting yet, missed our flight there and don’t even know how and when we can get there. As I always say “Take Risk’s”. Blessings from Chicago.”

(If you don’t know who the ‘Vicar of Baghdad’ is then read his Facebook bio.)

Only a few days before that Andrew had been in Jerusalem and Jordan, where he’d met an archbishop of the Syriac Orthodox Church. On FRRME he reports what happened in en-route to USA …“I set off for America where I am speaking at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville. On my way there I was stopped under terrorism legislation and detained at the O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. After many hours I was given a temporary visa and allowed to travel inside the US. It just goes to show how suspicious American security agencies are of Iraqis and those of us who still visit that beautiful but divided country.”

What else can we expect of a once-superpower nation? As Potus (President Of The United States) isn’t concerned about worldwide persecution of Christians – effectively genocide! – and appoints not even half-baked sycophantic administrators who kowtow to his gross failure to understand and recognise the roots of terrorism (as I’ve blogged many times, eg: here, herehere, here and dismissal of CIA/FBI intel), then such crass stupidity at O’Hare is par for the course.

And that’s not even touching the way Obama personally treats allies!!!

Yesterday – 1st item

Jordan-KingAbdullah-fatiguesBefore checking Canon White’s Facebook I’d already noted Joel Rosenberg again blasting Potus for insulting the USA’s close ally, Jordan’s King Abdullah II: “In January, Mr Obama snubbed the Hashemite monarch on his visit to Washington. The White House initially said the President was too busy to meet with the King. In the end, the President spent a mere five minutes with His Majesty at Andrews Air Force Base before departing on a political trip…he had refused a serious, substantive meeting with the West’s most important and faithful Sunni Arab ally a priority, and America’s allies and enemies were watching.”

However, after their meeting in The White House later yesterday the official joint press release opens:

“We spent the bulk of our discussion around the situation in Syria, Iraq, and our joint efforts to combat ISIL. Jordan has been an outstanding partner in that process. As I’ve said publicly, we have seen progress in pushing back against ISIL in territory both in Iraq and now in some portions of Syria. But a lot of work remains to be done. And so the coordination between our nations and other coalition partners is absolutely critical. And Jordan has made enormous contribution. Jordan is a country that punches above its weight when it comes to the fight against ISIL…”

In closing President Obama remarked,

“Finally, we discussed the situation in Israel and the West Bank, and the increasing tensions that exist between Israelis and Palestinians there. His Majesty has been a critical component of reducing some of the immediate sources of tension around the Temple Mount and visits there. But we continue to agree that it’s important for us to provide both sides a sense of possibility and hope, and not simply despair. That’s hard to do. And so we have explored ideas in terms of how we can make progress. But His Majesty has continued to be a voice of reason and moderation and tolerance for all the parties concerned in this issue. And we very much appreciate his partnership in the process….”

However, The Hill (Washington-based newspaper covering Congressional affairs) reports an article in West Point’s Combating Terrorism Centre by the former head of US Central Commander as saying the truth is exactly the opposite of what Potus and senior advisors are saying about ISIL. (Read Joel Rosenberg for extracts.)

More on Palestine & France

I also read Debka’s special report about US Secretary of State John Kerry in Jordan, ‘Abu Mazen rebuffs Kerry’s appeal to cool Palestinian terror against Israelis’.:

‘US Secretary of State John Kerry came away empty-handed from his latest meeting with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmud Abbas (Abu Mazen) in Amman on Sunday, Feb 21 – which shouldn’t have surprised him as it was par for the course. Debkafile’s Middle Eastern sources report Kerry was finally persuaded that Abbas would not give Israel an inch on any political or security-related matters. The Palestinian leader has never swerved from his conviction that it was the duty of the international community to force Israel to present the Palestinians with a state of their own – without direct negotiations.

‘To this end, Kerry found Abu Mazen clinging to the initiative put forward by French President Francois Hollande, for an international conference that will establish a Palestinian state, while letting the Palestinians off the hook of talks with Israel. France in fact warned Israel that without progress towards a two-state solution of the conflict, Paris would go ahead and recognize a Palestinian state on its own.

‘The Palestinian leader is determined to campaign on behalf of the French initiative in the coming month, undeterred by the US Secretary’s repeated warning that Washington will not go along with it, even if France puts it before the UN Security Council…’ (emphases RB)  Read the full informative report here.

Further to my coverage of Caroline Glick’s excellent articles on political anti-semitism in France, I regret to report support for this by Dr. Guy Millière, professor at the University of Paris, author of 27 books on France and Europe. In France’s Relentless Hostility to the Jewish State published by The Gatestone Institute, he opens:

“France today is one of the main enemies of Israel — maybe its main enemy — in the Western world. France’s disregard of the threats faced by Israel is more than simple willful blindness. It is complicity….”

This synopsis doesn’t cover the outrageous Dreyfus Affair that rocked France around the turn of 19th/20th Centuries. It was one of a myriad intriguing aspects of my school studies on modern European history because it centered around a ‘miscarriage of justice arising from faulty espionage and blatant anti-Semitism’.

Also yesterday

As a known supporter of Israel, PM Cameron spoke in Parliament against settlements built around East Jerusalem. His future will be of interest in these changing times…

BUT as the Palestinian leadership has never been serious about peace negotiations an intelligent person would ask, why should Israel hang on for decades getting nowhere? It’s only commonsense to get on with ordinary life and make sure there’s somewhere to live. Had Abbas the brain to abandon the moribund mindset of victim-hood and settle with Israel, these issues could have been resolved years ago and settlements no longer an issue.

Lana Vawser: coals of fire are being released for prophets

WOW! This word confirms and thus speaks directly into a dream of 11 days ago whilst attending the Awake conference (and which plugged into the podcast on Time). ALSO, for some reason this word was missing from my email notifications, although the next (Angels of Recovery) was in today’s in-tray! It was found by looking in my WordPress’ Reader folder, which I don’t always check upon blogging as I usually go straight to its admin desktop.

COALS OF FIRE ARE BEING RELEASED ON THE PROPHETS, PROPHETIC VOICES AND PROPHETIC MINISTRIES

LanaVawserThis morning during worship I saw angels descending from heaven and they were holding burning coals of fire in their hands.

I saw them going throughout the earth and they were releasing these coals of fire, the fire of God upon the hearts of prophets and those operating in the gift of prophecy.

As these coals were being released into the hearts of these ones, the fire felt hot, seven times hotter than what they had experienced before and I noticed as the coals of fire were burning in their hearts, their hearts were EXPLODING. They were exploding with the fire of His love, they were burning for Him in ways they hadn’t before as they wholeheartedly embraced the fire.

It was bringing a DEEP purging, a DEEP purifying, a DEEP refining, a DEEP pruning and a DEEP igniting.

As these coals of fire were burning in the hearts of the prophets and prophetic voices I saw something SO beautiful! I saw IN THE FIRE, the hearts of prophets and prophetic voices that had said YES to Him embracing the fire, a DEEPER level of the ‘knitting together’ of their hearts with the heart of God.

An explosion of revelation of the goodness, kindness and beauty of Jesus, the fire of His perfect love being awakened in their hearts. (Hebrews 12:29) In the midst of the fire that was burning I saw a compass that was on fire in their hearts, and the Lord was bringing an alignment and recalibration of hearts to ALIGN in REVELATION with the TRUE NATURE OF GOD and His love.

As permission was given to the Lord in the embracing of the fire, He was burning away religious spirits, areas of wrong views of Him and His nature that had taken root and were flavouring the prophetic words, messages of His heart in wrong ways. It was being burnt away to release a pure flow, a pure revelation of HIS BURNING LOVE!!!!

As the fire of God was working DEEP in the hearts of the prophets and prophetic voices, I saw their lips and mouths ON FIRE!

The Lord was bringing a greater cleansing of any ‘mixture’ in prophetic words released.

The Lord was releasing a GREATER PURITY in the flow of prophetic messages released even though we only see in part.

There is an accuracy and purity being imparted into the hearts of the prophets and prophetic voices AS they embrace the fire, that is releasing a greater level of clarity, accuracy and a deeper entering into the insight like the sons of Issachar – knowing the times and seasons. (1 Chronicles 12:32)

fire-of-Holy-Spirit-300x194As the prophets and prophetic voices were embracing the fire and being refined in heart to be more like Him, the prophetic flow in their life being sharpened and purged, they were arising burning with love for Him like never before and then SUDDENLY platforms of greater favour and responsibility opened up.

I saw many prophets being raised up into new levels of sight to declare and prophesy over cities, nations and people groups with greater clarity, accuracy and love.

There is GREAT FIRE on the prophets, prophetic voices and prophetic movements right now and it is bringing a shaking. As our YES is given to the Lord we are moving out in greater love, accuracy and burning for Him. He doesn’t want us to resist the fire, He wants us to embrace it. It is FOR OUR GOOD and the good of the Church and the world.
If the fire is not embraced, I saw ‘another time around the mountain’ happening, until the Lord can accomplish the purging, purifying work that He wants to do now, to release us into greater levels of accuracy and prophesying OUT OF HIS HEART OF LOVE AND GOODNESS, as true prophecy REVEALS who He is in His love and goodness and greater doors of favour opened so the burning passion of His love may spread across the entire earth.

The Lord is wanting to bring a restoration, purifying and increase to the prophetic across the earth. As we say YES to the fire we are moving into levels of insight, accuracy and revelation of His heart, His ways and plans like we have not ever dreamed of.

Read about this Australian’s ministry here.

Footnote (RB): this has a bearing upon an unusual dream I had from which I awoke feeling as though an interior volcano was about to erupt in my spirit. Later, in the second session of that day’s C.I.Europe conference, Jane Hamon spoke about the power of praying in tongues for awakening and releasing the force of the Kingdom. As we did that for at least two minutes I was blessed to feel that unseen fiery volcano bubbling within and getting ready to explode. Hence my picking up on last weekend’s references to holy fire.

 (Clearly, TalkTalk is still getting email issues: mid-Nov to mid-Dec the ISP filtered my email from Christian sites and I await reply their CEO’s reply.) 

Bobby Conner: “Behold! The Centricity of Christ!”

Steve Schulz at The Elijah List writes, “This is both an exciting and sobering word from Bobby Conner about the days we are in. Yes, “…the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken” (Isa. 40:5). Bobby had what he called an “electrifying prophetic experience” that is a MUST READ!

“I won’t give too much away but will share this from Bobby:

These are some of the most exciting days in human history. Prepare for the dawning of a new day!

“Be greatly encouraged by this word from Bobby!”

Bobby_Carolyn_Conner_500px

In an electrifying prophetic experience I was shown an emerging glory cloud covering the entire Body of Christ. As this cloud emerged I watched as Masterful hands with hammer and chisel forged this statement into the cloud of Glory:

“THE CENTRICITY OF CHRIST!”

At the completion of these words chiselled in the cloud, as Heaven’s host joined in victoriously shouting out the declaration, all Heaven and earth shook with the proclamation.

NOT WHAT BUT WHO!

Behold the Lamb in His Glory!

These are days of destiny, filled with wonder and excitement. The awe of God is returning to the people of God, filling the heart of God’s people with great expectation.

Something new and revolutionary is at the door—but the question is not what is at the door, but Who. A cry for the manifest Presence of God is about to be answered (see Isaiah 64:1). Every eye shall behold His brilliance and magnificent Glory (see Isaiah 40:3-5) and every veil shall be removed in order to behold the Lamb in His Glory (see 2 Corinthians 3:18).

Indeed, much will be discovered in these revelatory days concerning the Glory of God and the God of Glory. Now is the time for every child of God to behold the Lord Jesus in His revealed Glory (see John 1:14). The Word of God plainly declares that the entire earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of God.

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14

As we prepare the way of the Lord, the entire earth will behold His grandeur—and God’s plans for these end-time days will result in the entire world discovering that His Son, Christ Jesus, is King of kings and Lord of lords ( see 1 Timothy 6:15)!

These are some of the most exciting days in human history. Prepare for the dawning of a new day!”

Behold God’s Warnings!

Yes, we are living in unprecedented times. We are observing end-time events unfold before our eyes. Intense anticipation is building within the saints of God. However, we are also clearly beholding the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy concerning the condition and conduct of humanity at the end of the age (see 2 Timothy 3:1-5).

In many places and among many people, it is the norm to mock and belittle Christ Jesus. Mocking and blasphemies, however, are about to come to a sudden halt. We would do well to take time to read the “coming attractions” of Revelation 19:11-16:

Now I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in Blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in Heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.

Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

Let the heathen rage: his mind is filled with vain, blasphemous thoughts. God will bring a swift end to mockery and scoffing (see Acts 12:23). Scripture states that every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that Christ is Lord:

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

Let this warning flood the earth—starting with our own hearts from Psalm 2:1-12:

Why do the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme? The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say, Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us.

He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them]. He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury, saying, Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [firmly] on My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You.

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like potters’ ware. Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him]. Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

Behold the Harvesters!

The Spirit of God is, at this point in time, harvesting the harvesters and reaping the reapers. Why? The Body of Christ is standing at the verge of the greatest harvest the world has ever seen—the harvest at the end of the age when all seeds become fully ripened and mature fruit, both good seeds and evil seeds.

Never forget: the Lord will have His harvest. In the midst of the world’s confusion and chaos, the Kingdom of God is advancing swiftly across the nations. The Spirit of God is anointing ordinary people to do extraordinary exploits for the Glory of God (see Philippians 2:13) and countless multitudes are turning to Christ. Soon, more than one billion people will be brought into the Kingdom.

Beloved, be confident: you were born for this day. Don’t delay: move forward in victory, taking your place as a harvester and as an overcomer, embracing fully the destiny God has planned for you (see Ephesians 2:10).

Truly, as stated in Esther 4:14, we are in the Kingdom for such a time as this. You can know for certain that the Kingdom is in you for such a day as this. Take your stand be a bold and brave beacon of God’s love and light.

More focus upon holy fire

Tongues of Fire Acts 2-3

Tongues of Fire, Acts 2-3 – credit Iris Ministries

Over the weekend and today I heard about and read a few items from prophetical voices focusing upon the Holy Spirit’s flame falling upon and setting believers ablaze.

First, today’s Lion Bites from Glasgow:

THE POWER AND PURITY GENERATION

I am calling a generation to walk in both power and purity. In this day there are many influencing forces trying to pull my children from left to right and those who would dilute my word and my revelation. Yet with power and purity married together in your life, you will stand and not be overwhelmed by these influences.

I come to you today to baptise you with the spirit and with fire; to fill you with power and to set you apart as a pure one. I desire that you live life in the undiluted, raw, power of my gospel but also that your life would be established on an ever sanctified, set-apart, purity.

Would you allow me today to first baptise you in my fire: to burn and refine you and fill you with my Spirit and a greater measure of my power?

Matthew 3:11
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

What is the “Gospel of the Kingdom”?

Since posting a couple of items on orthodox Judaism’s reconciliation with Christianity (here and here) – as well as on Time – I revisited Romans 9-11 (which continues in 12:1 ‘Therefore…’ ) to prepare a follow-up. So this weekend I was mulling over the disciples’ prayer, “Our Father…Your Kingdom, let it come” and their wanting Jesus to tell them when that would happen (Acts 1:6). This morning ‘God-incidence’ arranged an email about Nelson Walters’ incisive new post on these matters (note interesting discussion thread too):

‘During Jesus’s earthly ministry we are told he came preaching the “gospel of the Kingdom.” How is this Gospel of the Kingdom different from what we all have come to know as the “Gospel?”

One of our regular readers asked me to comment on this topic, and I think….Continue reading > What is the “Gospel of the Kingdom?”

On engaging Time

podomatic-justin-abraham-time2

This graphic is so apposite in view of my references to Time’s spiral nature, as in The Nature of Time and Eternity & Prophecy (including Time Disruptions) as well as this blog series beginning Prophesy to 2014 and Talking to Time seems to work.

In a stretching new session recorded with Glory Revolution in Melbourne, Oz, Justin Abraham talks about engaging TIME and teaches how this fits in with the Word of God.

I tracked fully with him, listening a few times and recommend your taking time to listen by clicking on Company of Burning Hearts and then their Podcast link. Justin claims this is life-changing material for Christians – it’s certainly cutting edge!

“This is a sweet truth that will liberate your days! You are not a slave to time!”

Most importantly I’d remind everyone that Jesus Christ is Lord of Time and so you may also like to read, “I Am The Lord Of Time” and A Prophetic Word to Physicists.

My observations and comments will follow in due course, meanwhile may the Lord bless your listening, weighing and discernment…

Quantum Science – as Justin refers to science and quantum mechanics, here’s some basic information:

Light – small section of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM), all of which is measured in frequency of oscillatory wave motion. Renowned dual-slit experiment demonstrated that light is waves, or particles (ie. quanta; singular = quantum), or both!  Similarly for sub-atomic matter.

Counter-intuitive – earliest experiments revealed astonishing fact of quantum mechanics that light adjusts itself before, and according to, experimental observation; thus affecting results and as though displaying intelligence!!

Sub-atomic particles – Quantum Glory - cover‘It is a unique property of the quantum world that sub-atomic particles have the capacity of being in two places at the same time. In our macroscopic world of classical physics the last thing we would expect is to see someone bilocate right before our eyes so that suddenly they can be in two places at the same time. Yet in the counter intuitive world of the quantum universe this is exactly what is going on all the time’… ‘Quantum Glory’ p 68, Phil Mason (emphasis RB).

Entanglement – “is probably the strangest feature of quantum mechanics. It allows particles that were once together to remain in instant…communication with each other despite being separated by huge distances…its implications are so extraordinary that even Einstein refused to accept it, deriding it as “spooky action at a distance”! (Profs. Jim Al-Kahlili & Johnjoe McFadden, University of Surrey, Guildford, ‘Life On The Edge‘ p 30.)

Tunnelling – quantum process whereby particles pass through impenetrable walls and barriers.

‘Without quantum mechanics’ explanation of how electrons move through materials, we would not have understood the behaviour of the semiconductors that are the foundation of modern electronics…would not have developed…microchip and modern computer… without the advances in our knowledge thanks to quantum mechanics there would be no lasers and so no CD, DVD, blu-ray players…would not have smartphones, satellite navigation or MRI scanners’  (‘Life On The Edge’ pp 21-22).

Answer Creation’s call

A new post and ‘timely’ (!) lead-in to what I’m drafting…thanks Mike, and Jeremy.

Sons Of Issachar

ID-10022283For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God… For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now (Rom 8:19, 22).

The whole universe is groaning, waiting and calling us forth as his children, every one of us, God’s sons of light. If you are a believer in Jesus, you are called to be a true son of the light, a fully matured son of God, in order to change and transform the whole universe in which we live. We are to bring everything back into the order God always intended from eternity past. That is how we are to answer creation’s call.

While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become sons of light (John 12:36).

You are all sons of the light…

Faster than the speed of light

Second of two really useful re-blogs re prophecy and time, especially on the Lord’s ‘always now’ nature.

albert-einstein-401484_1280Einstein was working on something curious when he died, and many mathematicians went back to the last two blackboards that he was working on, to try to disprove what he had found (he had been trying to disprove it himself).

What he had found was that there appeared to be a particle faster than light; such a particle ought not to exist, but his equations seemed to indicate that it did. Eventually, a mathematician named Feinberg, having failed to disprove Einstein’s maths, proposed the whole idea of tachyons.

Tachyons are theoretical subatomic particles that run faster than the speed of light, and they are a theoretical particle that quantum physicists hate because if they go faster than the speed of light then they can’t measure them. If you tried to set a computer to measure them at 12 o’clock it would have…

Earth like heaven

mike-parsonsThank you to Mike Parsons for the first of two posts that will give my readers a base for what I’m about to blog on prophecy and time, as an outcome of weekend’s Awake meeting. Also, I’m pleased he quotes Matt 6:33, which continues ‘and then all these things taken together (ie. everything!) will be given to you besides’ – the ‘Caleb’ personal promise of 40 years ago (see There’s a river flowing through this nation).

As you sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. (John 17:18)

We are sons of the kingdom, sent to colonise this world, the very same mission God gave to Adam and Eve:

God blessed them; and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over it’ (Gen 1:28).

They were to rule over it in the authority God gave them, and so bring it under the rule of God. God still calls us to bring that rule of love into the world, to make earth like heaven. To make earth like heaven you have to know heaven, so we need to access heaven.

The realm of heaven is a dimension that is right in front of us. It is not somewhere up in the stars. It is here…

THE GREAT AWAKENING: please pray

A stirring reminder for readers over ‘the pond’ of great hope for N America’s 3rd Great Awakening. (It’s been intercessor Dutch Sheets’ passionate calling for many years too – http://www.dutchsheets.org/dutch-sheets-resigns-from-christ-for-the-nations-cites-limited-window-for-change-in-the-united-states/.)

Real Christianity

         Hello friends. I want to take a short break from my current series and tell you all that I greatly appreciate your support. Your ongoing comments and likes contribute to a small community here and it is always enjoyable to see us interact with one another for the sake of the Lord’s truth. You are all a great blessing to me.

         Regarding my latest series, Purification By Fire, I especially want to thankRichard Barkerand my friends across the pond who contributed so much traffic. Thanks to you all.

         I have noticed that many more believers are getting on board with the Great Awakening. Five years ago this was not the case. The Lord spoke very clearly to me in September 2010 that America was in the early stages of a national Great Awakening. Not one person I talked to then, including ministers of the…
