Congratulations to Team GB for winning 23 gold medals and a total 67 in the Olympics at Rio 2016, thereby coming third overall and second in gold medallions, between USA and China. Here’s a word published a week ago today courtesy of UK Prophetic Words that promises a fresh exaltation and baptism:
Why do Britons keep on winning? And why is the Union Jack raised up day after day? And why is our anthem heard over and over again? And why is this happening in so many different and unexpected events? And why is this happening at this time, before a watching world?
“Because I am going to give many in this nation victory, and I am going to exalt your nation, and My song is going to be heard in your land over and over again, and these blessings will flow to every aspect of the nation and from every part of My church – and a watching world will see and be astounded, that I am the Lord who heals and lifts you up.
“But this is not your doing – it is by My grace and by My mercy, and by My generous Spirit which I pour out in love upon You – so that My Name may be glorified.”
In my mind’s eye, I saw a mighty and invisible hand grip the UK by the Cornwall-Devon peninsula then raise it high out of the sea and whirl it around in the air like a football rattle, round and round it went, three times. And dust and cobwebs and dirt and insects flew off, and everything that was not anchored down and secured flew off into space. And then the hand plunged the whole nation into the sea, and I heard a voice say, “In the name of the Holy Spirit, be new!” And then it was plunged into the sea a second time and the voice said, “In the name of the Son, be clean!” and then it was plunged in a third time and the voice said, “In the name of the Father – be Mine!” and the country was held there under the sea and I did not see it withdrawn….

Footnote ‘correction’: Euro-Informationen in Berlin published EU Medal-Tracker ‘for all Olympics fans’ and puts ‘EU’ top at 325 medals, almost triple USA’s total. It completely excludes Great Britain!! Thank God we’re now getting out of that beast with superpower pretentions – thank and praise you Lord for what you’ve done and will do to renew Britain.
