Keep Praying and Bless: Day 45 – Leicester & environs


Decree: I AM THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST

We declare that we have a representative before the Father, who is Jesus who lives to intercede for us, and when we are weak He is strong.

Aaronic Blessing: The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, The Lord lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace. Thus, we put His name upon you and He will bless you (Numbers 6:24-27).

A linkage between Awakening in the UK and in the USA

Hitch-hiker and author of High Plains Drifter, Tim Shey, opens his comment on Prophetic words on Great Britain as sports-superpower, as follows:

‘I was reading the Psalms the other day and in Psalm 103: 31 it is written:“And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.”

‘I thought about Great Britain when I read that scripture. Look at all the saints that died preaching the Gospel in Britain and the ones who died translating the Bible into English. Look at what happened in England during the 1600s: the King James Bible, the English Civil War, the Glorious Revolution: these greatly influenced the formation of the United States and other nations. The Lord will never forget Great Britain. The most influential language on the planet is English.’

With that in mind, note how appropriate that is for what we were to hear later that Monday evening whilst watching the recently delivered dvds from Legacy 2016.  I wanted to check the full content of Lydia Marrow’s address that I’d blogged about the previous week.

Therefore, let’s consider what followed after the powerful prophecy delivered under Holy Spirit’s anointing on 2nd July. Lydia’s ‘topping and tailing’ of it gives some background to her great excitement!

After Nathan Morris speaks about the vision of Shake The Nations he hands the mike to Lydia to introduce herself and her role in STN and she says:

“I used to be shy – I used to hide behind the pews in my dad’s church and when Jesus set me free in the Brownsville Revival I got up and I was a different person. I lost my ‘normal’ – my ‘normal’ died in the carpet in Pensacola, Florida – so please don’t try to resurrect it!

“I know I’m supposed to do another thing but I feel like an explosion – would it be alright if I prophesied now, ok? I feel like I’m about to blow up y’all.”  [Reader, if you’ve not yet run seen this very brief video now’s the time to do so – Full transcript here.]

Immediately after declaring “The British are coming!” Lydia encourages everyone to stand, pray and praise for a minute…closing with, “I feel better for that – d’y’all feel better?”

“I refuse to be bored in church and this pastor’s daughter decided a long time ago: I refuse to be bored in church – if we’re not going to meet with God let’s go home!

“It’s just such an honour to be here. In case you’re wondering why I’m so passionate about God pouring His Spirit in the UK, history tells us that the United Kingdom and the United States do not have Awakening apart from one another! (emphasis added)

“You’ve got to break through! We need it too! In fact, it seems to me that lately our nations are all shook up…I felt so much better when I got here and everyone started resigning. Thank God we’re not the only crazy people!

“We’ve got to have a move of God…I don’t know if you know it but there’s no ‘Plan B’!  We don’t have a better idea – there’s no comfort zone to have anymore. We’ve got to have a move of God.

“You know, and I believe – and you’ve seen it in these services – there comes a moment in each service when you’ve got this option to do what your idea was, or to cooperate with the Holy Ghost…There’s a cooperation with the Holy Spirit that comes, and when we choose to say “Yes” to that – when you choose to lock into that – everything changes.”

Each time we watch her delivering this prophecy the Holy Spirit confirms its authenticity by sparking within us, as when He ‘struck’ during Trooping of the Colour.  If this sort of ‘event’ is new to you then please consider the introductory remarks of that link.

[Continuing writing 5 days later after long Bank Holiday Weekend…]

Long-time readers may have noticed an increase in my blogging about a spiritual linkage between the UK and USA, especially regarding words delivered under the Holy Spirit’s unction. These got tagged Bridge Over The Pond. So I’m now skimming through these to add a couple more items to the suggested reading list below.

I find the very first blog on this topic may itself be especially significant – it’s Get Ready… and refers to historic Paul Revere’s Ride.  [Even typing that brings up ‘goose bumps’!  And maybe it’s in conjunction with Kenny Peavy and band singing Holy, Holy Is The Lord Our God!!]

WOW – how can I share what’s coming in this timing? I’m reminded of Lydia prophesying, “The Redcoats are coming. The British are coming!” – reputedly Paul Revere’s alarm call to fellow colonialists in Massachusetts as he and two others rode from Boston on the night of 18th April 1775.

But today those words are are spiritual alarm call to the new Awakening!

And this ‘God-incidence’ brings a download of insights into a dream of almost 5 years ago when I saw and heard “The Kingdom is being set up”. That was the same day Bill Johnson prophesied that weekend in Sept 2011 may be regarded as a turning point in the UK (see Father Let Your Kingdom Come.)  A preparatory report of 2010 to that Revival Alliance Gathering referred to the relevance of that ‘ride’ but this is no longer available on the web.

I can but conclude, therefore, a great deal is happening in the heavenlies to bring about a massive shift within our historically linked nations. Ours has already begun…

News from Canon Andrew White’s team in Jordan

Andrew WhiteA different picture to Joel Rosenberg’s report on Jordan arising from geo-political differences was to follow in my email in-tray from Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle-East. Founded by Canon Andrew White – ‘The Vicar of Baghdad’ – FRRME helps the victims of and refugees from persecution in Iraq, Jordan, Palestine and Israel.

The persecuted Christians of Iraq – Yasser’s story 

“We met with them (the Christians) in the presence of a representative of the Caliph al-Baghdadi. He offered the chance for them to convert to Islam. If you don’t accept this, you can pay non-Muslim tax (Jizya), according to the Quran. If you don’t accept this, there is nothing left between us but killing and fighting.” Abu Abdula (Islamic State Judge), Raqqa.

‘Below is the testimony of an Iraqi Christian from Baghdad. His story is typical of the many people we are helping – followers of Yesua who have been terrorised and displaced by sectarian violence.

Yasser’s Story

Yasser per FRRME‘Yasser was born and lived in Baghdad. He worked as a welder, a job he did to provide for his two small children. In July 2014 an anonymous note arrived at Yasser’s place of work, followed by a phone call. Both made clear that Yasser and his family were not safe….Continue reading about Yasser’s move to Jordan by clicking here or on his photo  

 

Trip report from Amman: I’m so encouraged by what I see God doing in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Here’s why.

Such good news on the Lord blessing Jordan – many thanks Joel.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

JETS-JoelJETS-graduationOn Sunday night, I returned home to Israel from a very encouraging four-day trip to Jordan.

The purpose was to visit the Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary (JETS), at the invitation of its founder and president, Dr. Imad Shehadeh. A Jordanian national, Imad is a remarkable Arab believer who graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary (and currently serves on the board of DTS). He has a deep passion for studying and teaching the Word of God and training others to “preach the Word, in season and at out” and it’s clear that the Lord has truly given favor to this man despite enormous challenges he and his wife have faced over the years.

Until this trip, Imad and I had never met, only communicated by phone and email. So I was enormously grateful for his invitation and eager to get to know him and his colleagues.

In many ways, this trip was an ideal complement…

Brexit – God’s mercy triumphs over judgement

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this from Stuart Wentworth published today. Its second part reminds me of the ‘ditch-digger’ youth team of 1990s across churches in Reading (one member of which had a vision of what’s happening there this year as blogged here):

BREXIT – MERCY TRIUMPHS OVER JUDGEMENT

1. In the week leading up to the 23rd June I had a strong sense of spiritual travail, I was aware of being in labour is about the only way to describe it.

2. Following the result on hearing the furore from the Remain side I had a strong sense that the Lord had come down and placed his feet on the UK, in particular the financial square mile of London to deal with a root issue in the nation, that of greed, love of money, covetousness (which is idolatry) and hedonism. What happened on the 24th June was that the voice of Great Britain went round the earth and shook every financial institution in the world. I believe this was a prophetic statement as to how the voice of the church in the UK will again be heard in the earth and will deal with spiritual principalities and powers.

3. In the aftermath, a few weeks ago in a worship time in a meeting in Southampton I had a ‘video vision’ in which I saw the UK just after WW2 and it was in light. I sensed I saw the Lord looking at the nation but turning away in sadness. He seemed to say ‘I have to go away, defend until I come’. As the video ran over the years the light over the Nation began to dim. There were occasions when it seemed that light had shone again, eg. 1950s Billy Graham crusades, 1960s and 1970s with the charismatic renewal, 1990s with Toronto, but the overall trend was always downwards with increasing darkness. As the darkness grew I began to see small lights appearing over the land which slowly increased especially in the last 25 years or so. These I understood to be people interceding and crying out for God to move. This included many who came from overseas lands who received the Gospel from this land and came to stand with the church in this nation.

What I sensed overall was that ‘under the radar’ the Lord has been preparing a remnant and digging ditches of relationship across the UK. I believe the intercessory prayer, the praise and worship has been ascending to heaven and filling the bowl and that this bowl has now been filled. What I understood was that we have passed through an ‘exile’ period of 70 years, this has been our judgement. We have thought it was something that was coming to us but we have been in it for this period. I believe this exile time has now finished and that the Lord has drawn a line and said ‘enough’, the bowl is full. Now he has turned his face towards us and now is the time as it were to return to re-build the altar and foundations as in Ezra. Mercy and grace have triumphed over judgement. This is for his Name’s sake not ours. He remembers his purposes for this nation and in particular he remembers those over the last 200 years who have left to proclaim the Gospel in other lands and many who laid down their lives for him.

As the church begins to recover I sense we will yet pass through a time of opposition because the nation will still be going downwards and the enemy will resist all attempts at recovery. But now God is on our side as our Father even if he still needs to bring correction to us as his children it will be in love so that we might share his holiness.

A nation marked in Gold with Grace, Blessing and Victory

A WORD FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM, delivered by Veronika West and published on facebook Monday 22nd August:

Lion on Judah roars

“I SEE A NATION MARKED IN GOLD WITH GRACE, BLESSING AND VICTORY”

In my prayer time this morning as I prayed for the Nation suddenly I heard the loud roar of the Lion of Judah go forth across the land, I felt the earth shake with the intensity of His consuming love and divine protection for the people of this Great Nation.

Then I heard the Spirit say,

“Great Britain you shall become a sign and a wonder among the Nations, for I have marked you in GOLD with GRACE, BLESSING and VICTORY, Now Arise and Shine for My Glory has risen upon you..! Watch, for I have put your Name upon the lips of ungodly Nations and I have turned their eyes towards you. My Beloved have I not promised to bring Restoration, Reformation and Redemption to this Great land? Have I not promised that Nations would be drawn to the brightness of your rising? For even in this hour and season as they gaze upon My Glory, Grace and Victory that covers this Nation their hearts will be challenged, changed and transformed All Nations will see My governing hand of Justice, Mercy and vindication moving across this land, and All Nations will see the power of My salvation sweeping like wild fires across this Nation, and the power of My Redemption will flow forth like a mighty river to cover and consume the works of darkness and destruction that has ravaged the land, says God.

“Listen, for there is a sound of rattling, the rattling of dry bones coming together, Watch for a great and mighty Army of Radical Reformers, Light Bearers and Glory carriers are now Rising up from the Valley of dry bones. My Beloved, Watch, for the 7 Whirlwinds of My Spirit are now blowing across this Nation for there is a divine convergence in the realms of spirit taking over this Nation in this hour, the 7 Spirits in the 7 Whirlwinds have come to Revive and Reawaken the sleeping Giant in the land”, says God.

After hearing these words, I asked the Father to confirm His word to me for the Nation, as I walked downstairs I immediately encountered a sweet angelic presence in my living room, the atmosphere was thick and heavy with His Glory.

Then again I heard the Spirit say,

“I HAVE MARKED IN GOLD THIS NATION WITH GRACE, BLESSING AND VICTORY”

I walked into the kitchen and immediately my eyes were drawn to the small television I have in the kitchen, and on the screen I saw the highlights of the Olympics, which read, “GREAT VICTORY FOR GREAT BRITAIN, WINNING 67 MEDALS AT THE 2017 GAMES”, Immediately the Holy Spirit quickened to me His word in Palms 67 which reads;

“God, mark us with GRACE AND BLESSING,

The whole country will see how you work,
all the godless nations see how you save.
God! Let people thank and enjoy you.
Let all people thank and enjoy you.
Let all far-flung people become happy
and shout their happiness because
You judge them fair and square,
you tend the far-flung peoples.
God! Let people thank and enjoy you.
Let all people thank and enjoy you.
Earth, display your exuberance!
You mark us with blessing, O God, our God.
You mark us with blessing, O God.
Earth’s four corners—honor him!

As you can imagine I did a GLORY DANCE in my kitchen, THANKING THE FATHER FOR HIS IMMEDIATE AND POWERFUL CONFIRMATION OF HIS WORD OVER GREAT BRITAIN IN THIS HOUR.

GREAT BRITIAN WON;
27 GOLD, The number 27 means: RESTORATION
23 SILVER, The number 23 means: GOD WITH US
17 BRONZE, The number 17 means: VICTORY
