[Publ June 2016] My News Flash post made an audacious claim that a massive shift is happening, or is about to happen, in Britain. We were utterly and physically stunned by this turn of events because it was happening in our lounge! Whilst preparing a small celebration luncheon for friends my wife received an awesome message from the Living Lord God.:
“This is MY country!”
How do we know? For the simple reason such sudden surprising physical effects don’t and cannot come from anywhere else!
Upon hearing a quietly muffled sound, like that of wincing in pain, from Nina when she’s in the lounge and I’m in the kitchen, I turn to check she’s alright only to see her standing by the doorway into the lounge. She’s leaning at a peculiar angle, right hand against our cat’s 30 inches-high stand and hugging a large electric fan under her left shoulder (that she was about to take upstairs) – BUT with eyes almost POPPING out of her head.
All she’s done is to catch sight of what was on the TV – the Coldstream Guards marching down the Mall from Buckingham Palace towards the Horse Guards Parade for the annual ceremony performed in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. What was being broadcast live eight minutes into the broadcast opened her up to a blast of Holy Spirit’s power!
It made her tremble rapidly and continually from the neck downwards all over her body, as with powerful electric shocks. This continued for over half an hour and sparked later when she recounted what she saw! Nothing as pronounced and prolonged has happened since the times we were at Toronto Airport church.
Shortly into this event Nina ‘knows’ the Lord is saying something to her and she weeps as the words scroll as moving, written text in front of her eyes: This is My country! (The emphasis shown in first version above conveys the distinct emphasis Nina sensed.)
Furthermore, it is conveyed with an unmistakable stamp of divine authority!
Absolutely awesome and amazing to learn direct from God about His heart for our land and people.
If you’re in UK, you can watch this on BBC iPlayer Trooping the Colour 2016
Thank you Lord for such a profound privilege, and to be able to convey this to the public.
Furthermore, Nina noted that somehow all her preparations had been completed unusually early. In fact, in time to allow for undergoing this Holy Spirit encounter without causing any delay to our schedule for the midday arrival of friends. Thank you Lord.

Also, I’m reminded of a notion the Lord gave me in 2011 about the symbolism of a castle and how it may connect heaven and earth. It suggested that Windsor Castle could act as a socket in which the Lord could insert a handle as though winding up this nation’s engine through our monarchy – I’m not a monarchist! (See A Special Town in the Thames Valley?) Perhaps current events may support that notion and indicate a deeper significance?
Changing of the Guard (prophetic word)
Thanks to Samuel Company Mark 2, here’s an extract from Neville’s letter (emphases added).:
‘In an encounter with the Lord on 25th of November 2015, I heard these words which were spoken very authoritatively in a way that demanded my complete attention. The end of this year will usher in the changing of the guard. This brought back memories of when I was a child watching the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace in London England.’
Neville explains the ceremonial procedure and then refers to a powerful dream the Lord gave him in 1986 of direct relevance to the encounter. In his letter quoted above, he goes on,
‘This November when the Lord spoke to me He strongly emphasised that the end of this year we would again see a changing of the guard and that this would have profound consequences. Batons and mantles which have been passed on will be powerfully activated in a way that would be much greater in power and authority than the former holders of these batons had experienced. The Lord also spoke to me concerning a removal of many in ministry who were not teaching holiness and sanctification and were using their ministry for personal gain. However many of the old guard who had been faithful to the Lord would be taken home.
‘We must understand the times and seasons because major change is about to occur in the church, and a new emphasis of making the bride ready unfolds. God will no longer tolerate Luke-Warmness and the chaff will be removed and separated from the wheat. This is necessary in order for the last great harvest can be gathered in. This changing of the guard will have great consequences both good and bad. We are running out of time as it were and God will no more tolerate sin, pride, and evil motives, He is about to cleanse His church.’
Amen – Lord, let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
POSTSCRIPT (29th August 2019)
The above prophetic event seen by Nina was later contextually confirmed TWICE!
1st) Within weeks American worship leader Lydia Stanley-Marrow interrupted herself with a prophetic word “The Redcoats are coming! The British are coming! The British are coming!”, which mirrors what was on-screen at the time of that scrolling message.
2nd) Two years later during Trooping the Colour 2018, the Lord explained to Veronika West the significance of a fox filmed running across Horse Guards Parade. It represents the Spirit of Herod that tries to kill what God is doing in Britain (‘fox in the henhouse of Parliament’). The first fulfillment of His prophetic words came within days with Daily Mail’s scoop on MP Dominic Grieve’s secretive talks with EU leaders in London
