Another healing of surgically implanted materials (SIM)

“Did that really happen last night? Was it another healing?” Nina asked herself five weeks ago this morning. After getting out of the hotel bed, my dear wife checked she really could do what she’d not been able to do…YES IT’S TRUE!  Thank you so much Lord.

MORE was yet to follow!

PROPHETIC WORD & DREAM

A few weeks earlier, on another Tuesday, as we received holy communion in the service for healing at Acorn Christian Healing Foundation, one of our fellow prayer team spoke out what she’d heard from the Lord about healing someone’s spine. Beside me, Nina wept in response because this prophecy was for her!  At the time nothing was observed or felt but a few days later Nina was able to measure her height at the gym and pleased to find she’s regained about an inch in height.

Two years ago (early 2015) she couldn’t sit at these mid-week services but had to lie on cushions in the side-chapel because of searing pain from another collapsed vertebra in her spine. Its cause was the same as years earlier and a vertebroplasty procedure was given priority – I had some serious wrestling with the Lord over this repetition but he kindly blessed me with a dream. In that dream I saw Nina walking over a large map of the Florida keys and northern Caribbean and many people were coming to her. A man approached me to ask what was going on and I clearly recall telling him my wife’s giving her testimony of healing.

[Side Note: I wondered if the dream indicated we may have to return to America to receive the healing, but then I remembered the first spinal collapse happened in Fort Lauderdale in early 2006. Side-effects of a life-saving high dosage of steroids the previous year were a risk of tearing muscles and a reduction in bone density. We were happy, therefore, that a scan of wrists and hips had shown her as having bone density of a younger woman.

So we believed the sudden pain that struck when we were about to start a cruise with the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship was another torn muscle in her back – and Nina was determined to go swimming with stingrays in the Cayman Isles! I pushed her around in a wheelchair and she was exceptionally brave in coping with the pain but was blessed to see the Lord with her. Upon return home the true cause was found – collapsed, wedge-shaped vertebrae!!  I was expecting to become her lifelong 24/7 carer but the Lord blessed me with it being only months for He was to bring an awesome healing, as Nina attests in From Disabled To Enabled. So with the immense blessing of an early healing we returned to ‘Catch The Wave’ in 2007 and Nina was asked to tell the full story at one of the first meetings. This time we doubly enjoyed our holiday, and with our fellow cruisers praising the Lord.]

Therefore, my promissory dream of 2015 of walking as giants over those seas indicated a correction, or even a fullness of healing, to what had happened previously. Moreover, after the word of knowledge was given an attendee at the Acorn service came to ask me about the situation – his appearance was similar to the man I’d spoken to in that dream!  In other words and as I’d expect, the dream was a composite of historical and prophetical data and symbolism for which we need to apply the gift of discernment and dream interpretation – one of my favorites!

To the glory of God, Nina recounts what happened a few weeks later; ie. five weeks ago last night:

KINGDOM POWER & GLORY

‘In April 2017 Richard and I were at The Victory Church in Southampton for 3 days with Randy Clark and his Global Awakening Team. It was a time for teaching and healing services at a Kingdom Power and Glory Conference.

‘On the second evening Randy brought a word of knowledge about people with surgically implanted materials in their bodies and asked them to stand up.

‘Due to steroid-induced osteoporosis my spine had collapsed twice in the last 12 years. As a result I have had bone cement surgically implanted in two places in my spine, holding it in place.

‘I stood up in answer to Randy’s call and promptly burst into tears. I realise now that this was a form of grieving that I’d not done since both implants.

‘He then asked the four of us standing to do something we could not do before. I bent backwards and then down to touch my toes. Amazing! That was only the first thing that happened! Praise The Lord…

‘When we drove back to the hotel that evening I told Richard not to use the bay for those with disabled parking permits. We pulled up in a normal bay and I got out of the car with no problems!!

‘For two years I’ve had to park in a place where I could open the car door fully, twist round and heave myself out. You cannot do that in normal parking bays as there is never enough room. I have not used my parking badge since and do not intend to. I am in the process of writing a letter to the council who issued it, giving them my testimony and why I don’t need it any more. Praise The Lord.

‘Some would think those two things in themselves were good enough. But we have a good God and He has plans for us. So the third thing I noticed was during worship on the last day. I was standing up straight, level on both feet, not leaning to the right.

For all these years I’ve been leaning slightly to the right and putting pressure on my rib cage. Because I lost height when my spine collapsed both times my rib cage touches my pelvis/hips. So now there is minimal pain on my right side. Praise the Lord again.’

Either in that evening public healing service, or in an earlier daytime session, I noted that Randy mentioned about having dreamed before one event of someone being healed. It may have been in connection with surgically implanted metallic rods, plates and screws in people’s bodies. So I recalled my dream and, when he brought that word, I prompted Nina that SIM includes bone cement. After she’d received a healing I realised another fulfilled aspect of that dream: a second USA-connection is the fact that Randy is American. So it wasn’t necessary for us to trek back there, as could be surmised from its details!

MORE SIGNS OF HEALING

Since returning home, Nina found she can cross her legs when sitting down. Also, when a friend was here I realised she was oblivious to doing yet another new thing. Normal chairs and sofas are very uncomfortable so Nina uses a special reclining armchair, but whilst in it and chatting to a visitor on the sofa she’d swung one leg over its arm, and thus sat semi-sideways. I’ve never seen her do that!

The three of us chuckled and cheered because it’s so evident her spine can now twist – albeit set in cement in two places!  Next, Nina’s going to ask her GP for a fresh scan or x-ray as well as have her height measured to find how much height she’s regained after having lost four inches.

Dr Randy Clark

For readers unfamiliar with pre-Millennium church history, in January 1994 Randy Clark was a guest preacher at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. However, he was left with no option but to stay because through him the Lord ushered in a powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit, resulting in nightly meetings and millions visiting from all over the world. (The Pensacola  Revival was sparked by its Holy Fire, as blogged here.)

Read pastors John & Carol Arnott account of The Toronto Blessing: What Is It?, a term coined in Britain, out of which materialised two massive missionary works of God, as prophesied by Randy: one to destitute children in Mozambique including conversion of its Muslim provinces to Christ, and an ‘underground’ mission in Pakistan that’s brought masses of Muslims to Christ.

Prophetic alert for UK, especially south coast

Posted yesterday afternoon by UK Prophetic Words:

PROPHETIC ALERT FOR UK 

Following our Sunday morning service I started to feel unwell and decided to try and sleep. I slept and I had a a dream – in my dream I saw a war machine rising up out of the water, it looked like something from transformers. Around the main body of the machine were mechanical spider-like machines. They were all attacking the south coast of England and coming in through a cove.

I heard and saw two figures talking. They were standing on a headland so they could see the war machine and you could see fields behind them.They were saying that we must attack before the first week of September as that is when the harvest is due. They called the first week of September something like a soft sounding ‘A’.

I could see the field due for harvest was near a castle that belonged to the king of the land.

My feeling is that this is revelation of the time of harvest that the Lord is planning for this nation but also insight into the enemy’s strategy to stop that. I’m not sure what all the elements mean.

Retrospectively I believe it was a warning about Manchester but I believe it is also about other plans of the enemy to attack this land. On Monday whilst praying about the dream the Lord showed me a great sense of sleepiness among God’s people and that we needed to wake up His church and wake up his intercessors. Now is the time for the watchmen to stand, now is the time to wake up. I felt the Lord show me Luke 12:35: Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning.

Battle of Good vs. Evil: what does Jesus Christ teach?

The ministry team was hit by the emotional enormity of the previous night’s sub-human, demon-possessed barbarism. So, it was far from easy to focus and compose ourselves before the morning’s service for healing but the chaplain wisely reminded us of our Lord’s words. Then we sang to the King of Kings about His ruling over everything, and His Spirit joined with ours…So I’ve been brooding over those verses and the ongoing battle.:

In His famous in-depth teaching on blessings (‘The Beatitudes’) delivered to a multitude gathered on a mountainside, the one anointed in power by God’s Holy Spirit explained His purpose of fulfilling the ancient written instructions and prophecies that came from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Jesus’ mission was not to supplant or destroy them but to fulfill them. In saying so, He urged everyone to live so righteously that it exceeds that of the religious teachers, and thereby be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Moreover, in unwrapping authoritatively the purpose of the Torah’s commands about retaliation in order to avoid personal revenge, Jesus revealed it’s His Father’s overriding purpose to love everyone in practical ways.  His listeners had been taught to love their neighbour but to hate their enemy…

“But I say to you: love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain upon the just and the unjust.

“For if you love those who love you, what  reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors (Gentiles) do the same? And if you greet your friends only, what do you do more than others?…

“Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:44-48 NKJV)

There’s also Proverbs 25:21-2 promise, ‘If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink: for in doing so you will heap coals of fire upon his head and the Lord will reward you’ (Amplfd Bible). This doesn’t mean to harm them but to bless after the high priestly manner of igniting an offering to the Lord. So it implies the person’s mind may then be cleansed and changed, even unto repentance.

With all that in mind, I recalled having blessed an individual who’d taken exception to this blog’s claims about listening to the Lord, gifts of the Holy Spirit, the divinity of Jesus and my opinion of the Muslim Book. (Eventually, he said he’d been a ‘Christian’, albeit anti-Trinitarian for years, and now Muslim.)  So I simply wished him a similar encounter with Jesus as I’d had.  Therefore, you may wish to join me in blessing all those opposed to Christians and to the holy scriptures, especially humanists and Muslim fundamentalists, with a few blessings/prayers.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Son of God, who came in the flesh, may each person who has false beliefs and doesn’t yet know the Living God be saved by Your grace and mercy, as well as being blessed to:

  • have a direct, personal encounter with You,
  • be aware of Your holiness and person-hood,
  • be convicted of and truly repent of their sins,
  • renounce satan and all its teachings and ways,
  • become born-again of the Holy Spirit and a disciple of Jesus,
  • come into a relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • etc, etc.

Amen…

Most urgent warning call to intercessors for the UK

This follows the previous post’s emphasis upon the cities mentioned in the 2005 vision of Wendy Alec. Veronika West issues this call for continuing intercession as one of many follow-ups to January’s A Serous Warning To The Nations (re suicide bombers):

As I prayed this morning concerning the terror attack in Manchester suddenly I was shown in the Spirit what looked like a railway route map, the kind of map one would use to plan a journey from one place to another showing details of operator routes, platforms and timetables. As I looked closely at this route map I saw 7 major cities within the UK which had been clearly highlighted on the map, Manchester being one of these 7 major cities. As I pressed in deeper, staying focused on the picture before me suddenly I heard these words,

“BELOVED WARRIORS AWAKE AND ARISE FROM YOUR SLUMBER, FOR THE DEVOURER SEEKS TO STEAL AND DESTROY IN THIS HOUR, SET WATCHMAN ON THE WALLS OF YOUR CITIES IN THIS NATION, LET THE SOUND OF THEIR TRUMPETS BE HEARD ACROSS THE LAND. YES! WATCH, PRAY AND BE PREPARED FOR THERE IS A STRATEGIC ASSIGNMENT OF TERROR THAT HAS BEEN PLANNED FOR THIS NATION, WATCH! FOR THE NEXT 7 MONTHS ARE MARKED WITH GREAT DANGER, WATCH! FOR THERE WILL BE AN INCREASE AND AN ACCELERATION OF DEMONIC ACTIVITY OVER THE LAND. WATCH! FOR HELL HAS UNLEASHED THE WORKERS OF WITCHCRAFT AND DIVINATION WHO CARRY THE MANDATE OF DESTRUCTION AND DEATH”.

As I have continued to pray this morning over what I have seen and heard today I believe prophetically that God is revealing that there is a highly coordinated and strategic plan for terror attacks over ‘Major Cities’ in the U.K.

I believe that there is a call to “SET WATCHMAN ON THE WALLS OF ALL CITIES ACROSS THE NATION IN THIS HOUR”.

I firmly believe that as we COME TOGETHER TO PRAY IN UNITY AND WITH THE AUTHORITY OF HEAVEN we will only see these terror attacks foiled and exposed but totally thwarted and overturned.

I further submit that the next (7 months) and the days from now leading up to, AND the (7th Month-July) of this Year are going to be key times of greater Warfare and GREATER VICTORY for those in the Body of Christ across the UK.

I hear a call to AWAKE, ARISE AND ADVANCE IN THIS HOUR, HE IS EMPOWERING US TO TAKE NEW GROUND AND OCCUPY NEW TERRITORY IN THIS NATION.

Fulfilled prophecy #20 – warnings for locations in UK

UK Prophetic Words issued a couple of extracts on Tuesday from the detailed vision and call for prayer, repentance and intercession received by Wendy Alec on 15 July 2005. (A fortnight after the barbarism perpetrated against London buses and underground rail.)

On her Facebook Wendy draws attention to the double mention of Manchester and other locations. Clearly, she didn’t understand the rationale behind that because this followed a vision of the lion of Britain and the Lord’s promise to restore “Lionheart” and His glory to visit Britain as we move into our End-time destiny. Therefore, that section’s closure is in <parentheses> to lead into the second extract. 

Wendy opens her account of ‘Vision for Great Britain’ as follows:

I saw several pockets of small fires across Europe – The fires of wicked men and organisations – And the Lord said “Holland” – Holland was very strong – then France – and then Spain and Italy – then the Lord said – “And to the North was very clear and the Holy Spirit’s voice was insistent and very strong – “The NORTH – the North – the North” – and I had no clear understanding at all what the Lord meant and then I sensed a circle and heard the Holy Spirit say – “North London – Northern England – Northern Europe” and then I heard “North Africa” – this was the circle and the circle seemed to me to be linked in some way.

These fires, God said were kindling fires – they were very small – hardly noticeable on the map – but they burned furiously – and had fiercely burning blue flames – and then I saw that some kind of NET was being loosed from the heavenlies down to earth – and I heard the Lord say – “THIS IS THE SNARE OF HEAVEN” – and I saw a great angelic host – the warring host of Heaven being dispatched across Great Britain and Europe and other Northernmost and Middle-Eastern parts of the earth with swords that glistened like flaming fires.

And the Lord said – “As in the ancient of times – so as My people humble themselves and pray – a great and mighty roar of battle shall be unleashed from the heavenlies – and My mighty warring angels shall go forth – for I shall send them from the North and from the South.”

God was saying these were the fires of wicked men and organisations across Great Britain and Europe and beyond.

Then I saw prayer start to rise – first from small pockets of intercessors across the British Isles – these were not just prayer movements and organisations – but they were the heartfelt prayers of the saints from towns and villages all across Great Britain – these were the praying mothers and grandmothers and grandfathers – these were the prayers of the intercessors across Great Britain – and yes – they were mostly women in their homes and in tiny prayer and home groups – fallen on their knees and on their faces – and I could see that they had the full attention of the Lord – and then I saw the men – and ministers of God – and pastors and the ministers from all across Britain rose and joined their prayers in the Spirit with the prayers of the handmaidens – and the prophets started to prophesy – and join with the apostles and the intercessors – and then they were joined by the praying saints from across pockets in Europe and then from the North, East, South and West – and I saw a great hand arise from the North and the South and the East and the West.

And the Lord said,

“Because of the heartfelt prayers of My saints – I shall send My Angelic Host and the sound of their battle cry shall resound through the four corners of the earth as they prepare to meet the Princes of Darkness – For I tell you My children –A great and terrible darkness has been unleashed upon the earth in these days – BUT I am raising up an army – I am raising up a mighty army of My people who will gird themselves up for battle –and as the sound of their voices rises up to me – and as the sound of their prayers – of their supplications comes before my throne – so in turn – My mighty warring angels be unleashed to do battle in the heavenlies.

“And through the prayers of My saints in Great Britain – through the prayers of My saints in Great Britain – through the prayers of the saints and My followers in Great Britain – the stupor and the slumber and the secular humanistic spirits that have bound My people in this nation shall start to uproot – for my Church has had an outward semblance of power – yet its sound has been a whisper – even as My children have raised their voice in the streets of Great Britain – so the spirits of secularism and humanism have bound the mouths of My saints – but I tell you my children – there dawns another day – says the Lord – there dawns a different hour – and I call you Oh Church – I call you My saints – This is the day and this is the hour to arise” – says the Lord – “This is the hour to stir yourselves even as the mighty men of old – lift your voices and your hearts up to my throne – for this is the day and the hour of supplication.”

Then as the saints rose and started to pray – not with lip service but fervent heartfelt prayer from the heart – I saw another fire – with fierce white and orange living flames – start to burn – the prayers of the Church in Britain – and although it too started in pockets – this was the most incredible fire in the way that it spread across the nation – It was so fierce that as it took on power – it seemed that nothing could stop its path – but the people who created the fire were fallen on their knees – and God said “Penitent hearts” – and I knew somehow that these praying saints were repenting on behalf of Britain for the sins of the nation and for the sins of omission of the Church in Great Britain.

And these prayers gave the angels much strength – and the Snare of the Lord fell like a net across the dark hidden places of the earth – and I saw the terrifying whirlwind of the Lord like a fierce black whirlwind literally chase some of the evil blue pockets down – the winnowing whirlwind of the Lord of Hosts…

<…And God said Britain has yet to move into her end time destiny in the nations – And I saw again in great letters – the words – “THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN.” And the lion’s roar by now had gained strength. (See introduction re parentheses)>

And then the Lord said – “Manchester – Newcastle – then Birmingham – London – Edinburgh – Glasgow – Southampton – Bournemouth.”

And I heard Him say “Airports” – not airlines but airports – “Malls – shopping centres” – that He was urging the saints to pray a higher protection over these places and over these things – and I felt Him go back once again to around Manchester – again I do not understand why.

And then he started to speak of Great Britain’s destiny…(read in full here)

Personal Note:
On Monday I published the email from Deputy Sheriff Marty Breeden on his death-bed encounter with the Lord. I felt led to emphasis the importance of the 2-minute ‘end-of-game’ warning by starting the blog with some personal history of the 1950-60s ‘ominous’ 4-minute nuclear attack warning.  Afterwards I chided myself because it may detract from Marty’s story. However, maybe I was subconsciously sensing the impending menace of that very evening’s demonic attack in central Manchester, only 9 miles from my childhood home.

Trump concludes most successful visit to Israel by any American leader in decades and resets the alliance.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Trump-Bibi-IsraelMuseum

(Washington, D.C.) — Let’s be honest. The cynics and haters won’t be able to say one good thing about it. But the only fair analysis is that the President’s two-day visit to Israel was the most successful visit by an American leader to the Jewish State in decades.

It was meticulously planned, remarkably well executed, safe from start to finish, and it accomplished just what it had to. What’s more, the visit didn’t get derailed by unforced errors or unnecessary controversies.

Above all, President Trump’s visit profoundly reset and immensely strengthened the relationship between the U.S. and Israel, so badly strained after the eight years of the Obama administration. This is a very good and highly welcomed development.

Trump-Bibi-Rivlin-sitting

The President had four clear objectives for the visit. He came:

  1. To show his love for the State of Israel and reaffirm the U.S.-Israeli alliance
  2. To stand in solidarity with the Israeli people against radical Islamist terrorism — especially the threat…

Trump boldly urges Muslim leaders to “drive out the terrorists and extremists” from their nations and mosques.

NOTE Trump’s accurate description of Islamic terror as “battle between Good and Evil” (read prepared speech.)  All a mighty contrast to Obama’s deep rift with Riyadh in 2011 for betraying Egypt’s president Mubarak as a consequence of having invited the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood to his 2009 Cairo speech + his back-channel dealings with Iran, as I reported just over 8 years ago in Today’s Importance in History (18 May 2009)!

Saudi-TrumpSpeech2

(Washington, D.C.) — Wow. Readers of this blog know I have never been shy about expressing my concerns about President Trump when necessary. But the President deserves a great deal of credit for the speech he delivered yesterday in Saudi Arabia to the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority countries.

The address was well-crafted and respectful, even nuanced, at times. But it was also clear, honest, and bold. Indeed, it was unlike any speech any American President has ever delivered face to face to the leaders of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Cooperation Council, Egypt, Jordan and other Muslim countries. Below, you’ll find key excerpts, a link to the full transcript and a link to the video of the full 34 minute speech. I would encourage you to both watch and read the address in full.

A few first impressions:

  1. The President rightly thanked America’s Sunni Muslim allies for their friendship and hospitality, he honored their historic achievements, rich culture and heritage, and he reached…

Battle of Good vs. Evil – human love responds to demonic hatred

Politico-religious blogger Adrian Hilton records Mancunians’ praiseworthy reactions to the atrocity, in which demonic ‘losers’ now target children, in Archbishop Cranmer blog (click title for original article posted yesterday).Very well said sir:

THERE WAS A BLAST AND THEN A FIRE; THEN JESUS CAME TO MANCHESTER

Bodies and blood.

Carnage, terror and tears.

“There are children among the deceased,” confirmed Greater Manchester Police. “This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face,” said Chief Constable Ian Hopkins.

Nuts and bolts and nails.

Smoke and burning.

“This is horrific, this is criminal,” said Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain. “May the perpetrators face the full weight of justice both in this life and the next.”

Emergency services praised.

Cobra committee convened.

“Please hold the people of #Manchester in your prayers,” tweeted David Walker, Bishop of Manchester. “We’ve faced terror attacks before and this latest won’t defeat us.”

Fear and division.

Thoughts, prayers and condemnation.

Evil descended upon Manchester Arena last night: his target was teenagers at a pop concert. He wore a vest packed with explosives and metal bits. There was a blast and then a flash of fire. And then everyone just started running, screaming and crying.

And then Jesus came.

“We are visiting for a health conference from morecambe bay trust tomorrow 3 Theatre ODPs available if needed,” tweeted Kirsty Withers, an NHS theatre clinical manager.

“If anyone needs shelter we are right on the outskirts of central Manchester in Salford, anything I can do to help DM me!!” tweeted science student Karolina Staniecka.

“Anyone in Manchester who needs to wait for their parents or needs somewhere stay or to make phone calls, etc, just DM me. We have tea!” offered the BBC’s Simon Clancy.

“Anyone needing somewhere to stay can come to our Manchester headquarters in the city centre,” tweeted Stephen Bartlett.

“The Holiday Inn nearest to Manchester Arena have taken dozens of kids who have been separated from their parents tonight,” said Samuel Carvalho.

“Taxi drivers in #Manchester offering free journeys to those stranded after the events in #ManchesterArena,” tweeted Bethan Bonsall.

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me,‘ said Jesus.

Out of the depths comes light; out of oppression, a new possibility and hope. You can blame and curse the Islamist in bitterness and hate, or you can sing a song of joy because there’s a better story to tell. In times of distress and suffering, there are little signs of the presence of the Lord: manna falls from desert bushes; quail drifts in with the wind; water is to be found in the most unexpected places. And the water of life is the presence of love and compassion, of guidance and affection, of ordinary people doing extraordinary little things to help their fellow man, for no other reason than that they want to and can.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion‘ (Ps 137:1).

Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?‘ (Ps 94:3).

Is the Lord among us or not?‘ (Ex 17:7).

The power of death brings unbearable grief, but God restores the soul. To live is to praise. There is kindness in darkness, and mercy in Manchester. It is the intuitive pulse of faithfulness, covenant, unity and peace. May God bless those who mourn, and wipe every tear from their eyes.

Important update on Israel, Iran and the United States

Further to my previous posts (here and here) on developments in Syria regarding British, American and Jordanian special forces and Iranian interests there, we now see how that connects into the diplomatic details of President Trump’s visit to Israel.

Upon his visiting President Rivlin, Debkafile reports Israel’s president as saying “We can’t wake up with Iran and Hizballah on our border. We want Iran out of Syria, out of Lebanon and away from our borders, and we must move forward to this goal together with America.”

‘Donald Trump once again rebutted media evaluations of his trip to Israel as a demonstration of friendship without real content. Very shortly after his arrival, he stood up at the president’s residence in Jerusalem and delivered a string of important policy statements and new revelations:

  1. Iran would not be permitted to possess a nuclear weapon.
  2. Iran must dismantle the Shiite terrorists and militias.
  3. Iran must remove all those same foreign militias from Syria.
  4. Iran must evacuate Hizballah forces from Syria and disarm this Lebanese Shiite organization.
  5. The Saudi King Salman had told him first hand of his fervent wish for an Israeli-Palestinian peace. Trump heard the same sentiment from other Arab and Muslim rulers.

‘Our military sources add: The issue of the pro-Iranian militias ties in directly with the battlefield confrontation building up in the past fortnight along Syria’s borders with Jordan and Iraq….’  (Read full report Trump: Iran must disarm militias; never gain nuke.)

Readers of long-standing will be familiar with my concern since the mid-1980’s that Iran has never relinquished its ambition to attack, or mastermind an attack upon, Jerusalem. In fact, its often held military drills to practise achieving that goal. (See Welcome and various posts under Iran tag.)

Comatose cop questions Jesus and is sent back with ‘2 minute’ warning – part 1

As a child living at the height of the Cold War and sometimes watching the slow flight of a delta-wing Vulcan bomber swooping like a menacing hawk over my house in north-east Cheshire, I was only too well aware of the ominous public ‘4-minute Warning’ of incoming nuclear missile strike against Britain. (Popular joke: “Enough time to boil your last egg”!)

So it was especially interesting to note a shorter timescale emerged – with a football motif! – in discussion over this exceptional email coming out of the blue!  Note: ‘code blue’ is the American medical alert for ‘crash’ response to cardiac or respiratory failure.

From Marty Breeden, Virginia, USA:

Richard,

Enjoyed your page and wanted to share this with you…….my testimony

I’m a full time Deputy Sheriff with the Page County Sheriff’s office in Page County, Virginia.

I died on July 17, 2015. I went totally “CODE BLUE” from Acute Respiratory Failure as a result of a CO2 buildup in my system from a “perfect storm” of health issues. Within 48 hours I would go “CODE BLUE” again. ALL this can be fully medically documented.

When I coded, I went through a tunnel. When I came out, I heard the Voice of the Lord. He said, “My church does not really believe I’m coming back soon!” He said it over and over and over again. Each time with more passion and more urgency.

Finally, I said, “Lord, we read about it, sing about it, preach about it, study it, we believe you’re coming back soon!”

The Lord responded and the timbre of His voice changed…..He said, “My church does NOT really believe that I’m coming back soon, for if they did, they would not be living as they are!”

……..Again, His voice changed and He spoke with even greater Urgency……He said, “I AM coming back soon and my church is NOT ready!”

Later, I would have another similar vision that would be confirmed in a miraculous way, this too about the Lord’s soon return.

I was instructed to come back and “Tell those things which you have heard!”

I’ve made a wonderful recovery; I’m back now full time as a Deputy Sheriff in Page County, Virginia. I’m married with 2 daughters. Everywhere I share my entire story, souls get saved and people rededicate their lives to the Lord.

Blessings, feel free to contact me if you are interested.

In response to my query, Marty sent a link to the above video and told me his true story has featured on many US outlets to an audience of over 300,000.  It rang a bell and so I checked with James Bailey at Z3 News. He’d published Marty’s full account, which you can read in Part 2 of this post.

Thank you too to friends’ email that pertinently quotes Gandhi as rebuking Christians too:

“You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilisation to pieces, turn the world upside down and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of literature.”
