Meet Neil Mackereth, author of ‘SIGNS’

Paul Luckraft interviews the author of ‘Signs: The Significance of Biblical Prophecy’. My readers may recall Neil’s very useful summary paper EU Membership Referendum: Stay or Leave? and my much earlier introduction to his book and our friendship. I recall well those quick 50 miles round-trips on sunny summer evenings to Winchester for his most enjoyable and interesting course in my early writing on the same topics.

Paul writes in last week’s online issue of Prophecy Today UK.:

neil-mackereth

How does a retired Brigadier come to write a book about the signs of the end times? To find out, I went to visit Neil in his home and learn about his background, calling and how this particular book emerged.

God’s Guiding Hand

Neil would not describe his early life as particularly ‘Christian’, certainly not in the sense of being born again. At boarding school, he experienced the typical way in which ‘church’ was part of school life but there was no personal commitment.

In 1965 he joined the Royal Signals and began a career in the Army, travelling the world and soon rising to the rank of Major. Then in 1987 he decided to leave to enter the world of finance, but this was a bad time for such a move. This was the year of the ‘great crash’ and it was soon apparent there was no future for him there. Looking back, Neil can sense God’s hand in this, directing him back into the Army where God’s plans could more easily be fulfilled.

Amazingly he was not only accepted back with his old rank but was quite quickly promoted to Brigadier, taking on various roles in the Royal Army Pay Corps and the Adjutant General’s Corps. This was the time when the army was downsizing and one of Neil’s tasks was to help army personnel with redundancy packages and pensions. In that sense he was in both finance and military service. God always knows what he is doing!

Breakdown and Breakthrough

However, some aspects of his new role disturbed him, especially when he was asked to teach a certain course that he found difficult and ill-prepared to deliver. His self-confidence, developed and strengthened through his time at school as well as his army days, was being undermined and challenged. A significant change was about to happen. Neil describes this time as one of “breakdown and breakthrough”.

No longer able to cope with life in the way he was used to, he felt desperate – even slightly frightened. He could no longer sleep properly and became ill as a result. One night he knelt by the bed and cried out to God, that if he was really there to reveal himself and help him. After just two hours sleep he woke up feeling refreshed and clear-headed. A change had begun.

Neil realised that any semblance of Christianity in his life up to that moment (his 50th year!) had been nominal and self-serving. He had been living a self-centred life and expecting God to be part of that. But in a few short weeks, with the help of a house church leader that Neil knew, a spiritual transformation occurred, involving conviction, repentance and being baptised in the Spirit. No longer would God have to serve Neil – Neil would serve God!

‘Active Service’ in Retirement

His new joy led to a renewed confidence, no longer in himself but in God, who told him to stay in the army as a witness. In his remaining years there, God honoured him with more promotions. Becoming a Brigadier actually gave Neil more opportunities to share his faith and even pray for people.

Once he retired in 1998, God found more ‘active service’ for Neil. After two years as a school bursar in the Lake District, he moved to Edinburgh, the home of his late wife. Sadly, she died of cancer shortly after their arrival. Neil stayed in Scotland for a few years, becoming an elder in the Church of Scotland. After remarrying, he ran a Healing Room before returning to Hampshire and joining the Winchester Vineyard Christian Fellowship.

He has served at ‘WinVin’ for some years, including as a trustee, and it is there he started to teach and preach. So how did writing a book become part of his life?

Discovering Bible Prophecy

Neil offered to teach on the end times at WinVin but was initially turned down. However, six months later the leaders changed their mind and approached him to put on a course. This he did willingly, not because he knew all about it but because he was intrigued by the topic and wanted to find out more. Prophecy was a key part of Scripture, so why was it either ignored or badly understood?

Neil already knew the Bible was God’s truth and his regularly study in the Word (with the help of Grudem’s Systematic Theology, among other aids) had given him the grounding to tackle something as daunting as the end times.

Neil also already had a significant advantage, namely a clear understanding of the Jewishness of Jesus and the importance of Israel and the Jews. He had no need to repent of Replacement Theology or re-adjust his thinking in this respect. God’s word had spoken to him and Neil knew what had to be taught.

After 18 months of teaching through the various topics on the end times, Neil realised he now had a wealth of material, both on his computer and in handouts. What to do next with all this? Why not write a book? He had written articles before for a military magazine, so he had some experience in this field, but this was a new venture altogether. However, he believed this was what God wanted, so in 2012 he started turning what he knew into book form. Focussing on writing for just one day each week meant it took him 18 months to produce the first draft. But then what?

Completing the Journey

A very user-friendly introduction (click to buy)

God had it all in hand, and led Neil to the right people to help him, from editing the first draft through to the final process of publishing. After being rejected by one publisher, he decided to go down the road of self-publishing, choosing Kingdom Writing Solutions as the means of doing this, and Amazon for the sales side via print-on-demand and an e-book. This all worked out smoothly, which was a great blessing.

Would he write another book? Perhaps, but only if it was clearly what God wanted. Meanwhile, Neil does continue to teach his course, or a revised shorter version of it, on a regular basis. His story is a further example of someone being led by God through life and finding new fruitfulness in the latter years, an encouragement to us all.

Monday GPS#4 (Global Prophecy Signals) on the Bride of Christ

Digital Globe with Hand by Watcharakun

Readers may wish to weigh and pray over the following from Australia, England, Ireland and Scotland that was in my in-tray today (in chronological sequence received). First a mightily encouraging exhortation:

Lana Vawser – The Battle Going On Is For Your Destiny – He Is Releasing A Key For This Season Of Increase: “There is a mighty battle taking place right now in the body of Christ over the destiny of His people. The crossing over into greater manifestation of the plans, purposes and breakthrough that He has for His people. There certainly is a ‘clashing of kingdoms’ taking place right now….(see text)… As we continue to stand, as we as God’s people continue to worship and decree. As we continue to use the authority given to us in Christ Jesus, we are moving into the greatest MANIFESTATIONS OF VICTORY we have ever seen….” Click above header to read in full. ( 29th Jan 2017)

Chris Bennett – Watch For New Evangelist, New Prophets, New Teachers“The church has lost its voice”, says the Lord. “For this reason I am raising up new voices in the church, voices that will stir My church, will inspire My church. I am raising new voices. I am not renewing nor regenerating old voices, but raising new voices. You will know them by the anointing they carry. You will know them by the love and truth they speak with authority. You will know them by the presence they carry. My Spirit shall rest on them and they will carry My presence,” says the Lord.

“Watch for new evangelists, new prophets, new teachers”, says God, “for they are being raised up today. New Smith Wigglesworths, new Jonathan Edwards, new CH Spurgeons – all will carry My authority, My presence”, says God, “for I am raising them to bring back to My church the voices the church has discarded and lost. There will even be one or two new Elijah’s”, says the Lord.

2 Timothy 1:6-7 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (21st Jan 2017)

Veronika West – Fear Not He Has Hidden You From The Devourer: I hear the Spirit say, “In this hour I have overshadowed you with My Wings, I have concealed and hidden you, I have made you invisible to the devourer that comes to steal the new position and the greater portion that I have assigned for you in this season”, says God.

“So Rest and Be Still in the shade of My safety and refuge, Fear not! For here in this place I have given you a Victory shout over defeat, My hand now moves to shield, Protect, Provide and Preserve your life from the dangers of darkness. Come close, draw near and you will find reassurance and refreshing under the light, warmth and power of My Wings, Even now the power of My Love and Glory is drawing you that your strength may be renewed, your passion may be revived and your spiritual senses may become fully awakened and fully activated to your true purpose and Destiny”… Click above header to read in full.(23rd Jan 2017)

Lana Vawser – Prophets of His Heart – STAND FIRM!I saw the enemy attempting to put a “muzzle”and tape over the mouths of many of the prophets of His heart right now to stop the messages from His heart flowing out. STAND and WORSHIP, it’s not only breaking off, an increase of clarity, revelation and manifestation of the breaker anointing is being released upon you! (30th Jan 2017)

Lion-Bites-logo-2012Lion Bites – You’re Invited On An AdventureGod is releasing an invitation to you today. It is an invitation to an adventure, more amazing experiences and a life where no two days will be the same!

You are invited into forwarding movement and, as you accept, there will be a breaking out of the rigidity and monotony of the track you have been journeying on. This is a personal invitation into the new and fresh ways of God – an adventure personal to you, and not a replica of another’s journey. Know this, God is not calling you to isolation but to exploits and a life venture designed with you in mind.

This ‘new place’ that God is taking you to requires a pioneering spirit, one willing to go wherever this path meanders and weaves over time. God requires more trust from you and faith that He will not lead you into challenging terrain without equipping you for it. This invite necessitates faith to access and walk into it.

God is calling you – yes, you Lion!

He is calling for your spirit of adventure again and asking you to say yes to a journey of joy with Him into unchartered territory.

Will you go?

Ruth 1:16
But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

Sign of the Son of Man

2ndAdventDiagm_thumb.jpg

1st Sunday of Advent (click for more)

The Time of Jesus’ Return is so very close. Prayerfully consider Tony’s vision. Those verses had made such a deep impact upon me they were within a vivid encounter in a life-changing dream.  Especially noteworthy here is the vision of THE sign – the Cross – for Tony remarks, “What was truly amazing is the fact that where one would normally expect to see the sun there was instead a cross” (see Comments).

My Dreams and Visions

Mat 24:30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

I’ve had this vision stuck in my head for several days. In the vision I saw a cross in the sky. The cross was bright and very large. In fact, I do not remember seeing the sun. So the cross could have in fact have been brighter than the sun which is why I didn’t see it. I then saw 2 groups of people. There were those who were doubled over as if in pain and anguish kneeling on the ground. Then there were those with hands raised and were welcoming the sign in the sky.

The next verse, Matthew 24:31, says:

Mat 24:31 And He will…

He tells about having a ‘gate opened’ on that word, plus “A whole bunch more”, at the 56:30 mark of this video of last Sunday’s service (after telling about attending the President’s Inauguration). As it needs some preparation he announced its delivery in advance at next Sunday’s service. Watch at http://churchofhispresence.org

Veronika West: a vision of Britain and the United States

Posted 26 Jan on UK Prophetic Words:

TODAY I HAVE BEEN LED TO PRAY FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY AS THEY PLAN TO MEET TOGETHER TOMORROW. WATCH! GOD IS DOING NEW THING IN THIS HOUR!!

Some of you will remember this powerful Word God gave me last Year July concerning the United Kingdom and the United States of America coming together in great purpose in the future. I believe we are now beginning to see the fulfillment of this Word…!

gold-silver-flow

5th July 2016.
A WORD FOR AMERICA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM; THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE!

“A MIGHTY RIVER OF GOLD AND SILVER; THE POWER OF GLORY AND REDEMPTION IS SHIFTING AND RESHAPING THE NATIONS IN THIS HOUR “!

Today while praying for the Nations, suddenly a very powerful vision opened up before me where I saw a large gold hand coming out of the Nation of America, I watched closely as the gold hand reached up high into the heavens.

Then suddenly I saw a large silver hand coming out of the United Kingdom and it too reached up high into the heavens, I watched intently as the silver hand of the United Kingdom and the gold hand of America came together and began to shake hands and as the two hands shook, I felt the earth tremble and the ground beneath my feet began to move and shift.

Then suddenly out of heavens came a third large hand, but it was a hand of blazing fire, I watched as the hand of fire came to rest upon the shaking hands of silver and gold, Suddenly the blazing hand of fire intensified in heat causing the hand of silver and the hand of gold to melt, I watched closely as the two precious metals melted into one another forming one mighty river of molten gold and silver.

And then I heard these words, “UNITY AND FREEDOM, GLORY AND REDEMPTION”

Then I watched as the river moved with great force and in great power, I watched as the river of gold and silver suddenly turned and broke forth upon the Nations of the earth and wherever the river of gold and silver flowed the mighty waters rose causing the landscape to be changed and transformed, then I watched closely as great fires broke out upon these Nations, the blazing fires of purification and revival, fires that will not be quenched but will only burn brighter and brighter.

Then suddenly out of the heavens I heard these words, “WATCH! FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM SHALL SHAKE HANDS AND THE TWO SHALL FORM A STRONG ALLIANCE AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE IN PURPOSE, ONE IN VISION AND ONE IN GREAT VICTORY.

WATCH! FOR THE RIVER OF MY GLORY AND REDEMPTION SHALL NOW FLOW FORTH UPON THE NATIONS CAUSING A TIDAL WAVE OF TRANSFORMATION AND CHANGE, FOR EVEN IN THIS HOUR BELOVED THE POWER OF MY GLORY AND REDEMPTION IS SHIFTING AND RESHAPING THE LANDSCAPE OF THESE GREAT NATIONS AND THE FIRES OF PURIFICATION AND REVIVAL SHALL BURN, BURN, BURN”, says God.

Breaking news: Iran ousted from Syria in Trump-Putin safe zones deal

Exclusive DebkaFile report ‘Trump-Putin Safe Zones Deal Ousts Iran From Syria’ opens as follows:

syria-per-debka

‘Syria stands on the threshold of dramatic changes that will directly impact on the strategic and military situation along the Syrian borders with Israel and Jordan, debkafile reports exclusively. They derive from a deal struck this week by US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to establish US, Russian and Turkish security zones in Syria. This scheme will transfer military control of the country to those three powers. Each of them will be responsible for a zone whose borders will be defined and agreed upon by Washington, Moscow and Ankara.

‘As part of this arrangement, all forces from the Iranian military, the pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hizballah will be required to leave Syria…’ continue reading.

Fulfilled Prophecies #16: “The Redcoats are coming, the British are coming!” – We’re here!

“The Redcoats are coming! The British are coming! THE BRITISH ARE COMING…the British are coming!”

Thus closed the word Lydia Stanley Marrow delivered under the Lord’s anointing during Shake The Nations’ team introductions at Legacy 2016 in Peterborough on 3 August, as reported in Map-vision and Word: Epicenters of Rivers of God’s Glory in Britain.

TODAY WE ARE COMING TO THE VERY HEART OF REVOLUTIONARY AMERICA!

Prime Minister Theresa May begins her visit within a week of the inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States. She will be the first overseas leader to meet him for talks tomorrow in the White House. (Am looking forward to Bill Koenig’s Eye-View report from there.)

BUT FIRST, the British Prime Minister and her entourage are heading straight to the head-quarters, if not official capital, of our colonies during the American Revolutionary War – Philadelphia. The then largest city hosted the First Continental Congress, before the war, and the Second Continental Congress, which signed the Declaration of Independence.

It is there, our Prime Minister will address the annual congressional Republican Retreat and, according to the Telegraph, say the UK and USA will “renew the special relationship” now that President Trump is in the White House. She will say Britain and America can “rediscover our confidence” and “lead together again” in the wake of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.

FIRST AND FOREMOST in these meetings is the vital fact mainstream media will ignore: BOTH Theresa May and Donald Trump understand the importance of, and are strongly supportive of, the Jewish nation of Israel.  Our two nations will thus become blessed by the Almighty, as He promised Abraham and his descendants – “I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed”.

This weekend is, therefore, of exceptional significance not only in terms of geopolitical history but also of Biblical history and what the Lord is doing!

Pray it marks the early signs of manifestation of the rest of the prophecy and eventually bearing fruit. Or, as in some prophetical delivery, performing a physical action as part of declaring its truth.

A strong indication of the above prophetic word moving out of its dormancy came a few months later upon seeing this prophetic photo of Mrs May at the G20 Conference. She had met Barack Obama and was standing on his podium, which he had left. I sensed in my spirit this itself was prophetic of him not only vacating his presidential office but also getting out of the way and being replaced by a person of a completely different spirit – thereby enabling fulfillment of the prophecy Lydia brought! (Fulfilled Prophecies #12 refers.)

Personal Note

Have you ever received a personal word of prophecy or been with someone moving in the prophetical gifting, perhaps recognised as operating in the office of prophet? As well as weighing and testing such words or visions, it’s wise to put them in a ‘pending tray’ to await subsequent confirmation by others of prophetical gifting, or for the actual fulfillment of the prophecy.  When such an eventually proves it true we realise what a privilege it was to have witnessed the delivery of the original word or vision. Such was the case for what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2012, and our nations’ role in its fulfillment (see recent FP #15).

Yet it was even more so when we heard Lydia!  We got exciting confirmation of what Nina had seen at the start of Trooping the Coloura text of the Lord’s heart for our nation! You can see our front-row reactions during Lydia’s delivery:

The trap in the ground, and the trumpet in the sky

Very perceptive points from Jo that are well-worth pondering, especially on the sounds heard over Jerusalem!

The Kingdom

richter-scale“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” The King asked by way of reply to my question about the shaking New Zealand has been experiencing.

I keep an eye on signs.  I discern things.  That’s my gift.  Not that I always get it right.  I check what I see with the Bible. And I ask God questions.

“Are the earthquakes we’ve been experiencing since 2011 about sin?” I asked doubtfully.

The day before the Kaikoura earthquake Brian Tamaki, the self-appointed bishop of Destiny Church said, “the earth convulses under the weight of certain human sin … Massive earthquakes have already hit in Christchurch and you could have just about predicted that one.”  The next day he was a  prophet in big trouble with the gay community who didn’t like what he said.

Well, he detected something, but he was off target.  We’ve always had sin.  It’s…

Invitation to visit the revamped Library of Prophecies

After updating this blog’s Library I realised it’s not easy to scan through and read with so much material. So I considered splitting it into several pages, but there’s already a number of sub-pages with more material. Also against splitting is the fact it would hamper an appreciation of the prophetic flow across the years, especially since the Millennium.

Moreover, the nature of prophetical material available from the blog’s menu. (ie other than that which appears on the sequential posts) necessitated the separation of chronological items from reference items under different hubs on the main menu, as though on two floors of a two-storied building.

You are, therefore, warmly invited to visit this blog’s re-arranged

Note the latest addition is a compilation of fulfilled prophecies published on this blog.

Could this re-development be the realisation of a dream?  Continue reading

Dave Chapman on Nationhood

An instance of serendipity (or ‘God-incidence’) in this guest post by Dave Chapman being written whilst I wrote about the 2012 prophetic word on restoring nations’ identities.:

NATIONHOOD

It seems to me that too many Christians are afraid of standing up for our – or theirs, as the case maybe – Country. “We don’t like to get involved with politics”, we may hear, or “we are citizens of heaven, so therefore do not engage on that level”, for instance.

However, whilst ‘being political’ has to do with government and its desired nature, owning Nationhood I believe, is something quite different.  Getting involved with which ‘party’ runs, rules, or governs our own Nation does involve being ‘political’, or having a ‘preferred party’ bias.  But being involved with defending our own Government from other Governments, so that we make our independent and individual choices, is not ‘political’ in the true meaning of the word.  That is purely standing up for our own Nation – which is also quite different from ‘Nationalism’.

Yet, there is a fine line between standing up for our ‘Nation’, and ‘Nationalism’.  Here for instance, are the online dictionary definitions to help :-

Nationhood, is described as:-

“the fact or status of being a nation;  national identity, culture or economic life”. (Oxford dictionary, online)

“the state of being an independent nation”.  (Websters Dictionary, online)

“Nationhood is the state of being a nation, or a large group of people united by common language, culture or economic life”. (Your Dictionary, online)

“the state or quality of having status as a separate and independent nation“: (Dictionary.com)

Whereas ‘Nationalism’ is described as:-

“loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially :  a sense of national consciousness (see consciousness 1c) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups” (Merriam-Websters Dict, online)

ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests”. (Britannica Encyclopedia, online).

So we can see from these definitions that being a Nation, or having Nationhood, is a fact of life.  It is a state of being as a people, and operating as an independent ‘mass’ of people from other nations, whereas Nationalism is an ideology proceeding from a form of childish pride that “our nation is better than yours“!, and so displaying a superior attitude – with a desire to impose that culture and values on other Nations or peoples.

We can see that this latter approach is the root of an ‘Empire spirit’, which has manifested itself throughout the centuries over and over again.  Examples of this are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Roman, and of late the extremes of pre-War Germany, also Russia, and by the way, Britain, with its one time global Empire upon which there was no setting sun!, and finally since then, America, with its incursions into other Countries with a view to establishing democratic ideology.

Where Did The Idea, Or Fact Of Nationhood Come From?   Continue reading

Not many people know: Trump’s words on Brexit predicted in 2012

No apologies are made for repeating exceptional information you won’t find elsewhere and which will serve to prepare for a guest post on nationhood.:

Visitors, in case you’re unaware of the astonishing fact that this was forecast in 2012:  

As President-elect, Donald Trump’s words to a now retired leader of the UK’s campaign to leave the EU (Michael Gove MP) repeat part of a prophetic word delivered 50 months earlier!

The full details are given in Fulfilled Prophecies #15 and reveal a promise from God that, “I will bring you out of what you have designed by your own thinking and by your own hands that I may redesign it by My thoughts and My plans”.

According to the internationally recognised seer who brought this, the Lord indicated “The western New World, particularly the USA, will enter accelerated crisis-shaking” and she noted the UK is “not the only nation that has been in an identity crisis…many of our nations have had skewed identity”. I was amazed to hear about the Lord’s purpose in permitting a hurricane – Parts of these winds…are bringing a re-arranging, are blowing away what has confused nations of their identity”. 

ALSO noteworthy is the fact that one year ago Britain and the United States had different leaders. Media and popular opinion had absolutely no foresight because very little change was anticipated. BUT the Lord had told Revd John Kilpatrick during Christmas 2015 that “Nations shall be shaken, but kingdoms shall be jolted” in 2016! (Details here and in Fulfilled Prophecies #7.)

It’s hard to imagine the effect upon me as I sat only a few feet from Revd Dr Sharon Stone scribbling notes on what she’d learned from the Lord about hurricane Sandy, which had brought widespread devastation to New York and region. What she humbly shared in mid-November 2012 was so unusual it was hard to take in. (She’d foretold events leading into 2008’s economic crash.)

The revelation required a dose of reflection whilst I painstakingly checked and transcribed the audio-recording for publishing, with her kind permission, on this blog as Prophetic Word on Hurricane Sandy.

Thus, the Lord has indeed acted as promised by shaking and jolting kingdoms and nations for bringing about His holy purposes!

Selah!
