England ablaze: another vision from Arizona

Thank you to my ‘cyber-friend’ Tony Puccio in Tucson for your heart and prayers for the UK and reporting what he senses from the Lord showing him what’s about to happen on his global horizon over the ‘Pond’ far to the east:

ENGLAND ABLAZE, ANOTHER VISION

As I was reading Richard Barker’s posting this morning (Friday 25th August), regarding an unprecedented wave of God’s glory and fire coming to England, I saw the following vision:

In the vision I saw that it was night and I could see the waters of the ocean and barely make out the rest of Europe. Again, remember that it was night as this is significant. I then saw England glowing with a bright light in the midst of a dark sea and a dark night. I then saw people flocking to England and taking pieces of the light with them and leaving. What I am interpreting this as is that people will be attracted to the and, once there, will be transformed by the light, i.e., God’s glory, and take the light that they received with them.

An unprecedented wave of God’s glory and fire coming to the UK

Thank you to the Lord, Lisa Arnold and UK Prophetic Words for this word:

A WAVE OF GLORY AND FIRE, NEVER SEEN BEFORE, IS COMING TO THE UK

You have built for yourselves cosy nests, to protect yourself from the world, being hurt and disappointed! But I say to you, it is a new day, a new start, a new season, to take that leap of faith, and surrender your life afresh to me! Put me as your first love, and you will become one with me.

I have heard your cries in the UK, and some of you have humbled yourselves, and are now going about my work. But others are still asleep in their complacency, and think they have right standing with me, because of their position, title or ministry! But I say to you, repent of your ignorance, nakedness and blindness.

There is a wave that is coming that will knock you off your feet, if you are not standing on my rock … Yeshua. A wave of my glory and fire, never seen before in the UK, and a wave of water, that you will need to get right in. You will have to learn to swim, because paddling in the shallow end is no option anymore! You have asked for my fire and my glory, and a wave of my spirit, so I am going to give it to you!

Those that are ready will be radiant, and carry out great exploits for me, and bring in the lost! They have been hidden away for a time such as this! Nobody has seen any potential in the ones that I will use, they’ve just looked at their outward appearance, and thought they looked too worldly, but I look into hearts! My true remnant have been judged and slandered, but they have not loved their lives unto death. They have tasted for themselves my healing power, my fire and my glory. I have healed their wounds, and they are ready for the great waves of glory, fire and water, to just flow into them and empower them. They have learnt to swim in the river of adversity.

They have let me burn the dross off and let me search their hearts. I have freed them from the power of religion and rejection. But it is time for my remnant to burn for me, in pockets throughout the UK, setting others on fire.

But beware you who have put your trust in man and forgotten your first love and not repented. You do not even know me! You won’t even be aware of what is coming to the UK.

But because of my faithful ones, who have cried out to me for this nation, I am coming to you like never before! You need my mantle to carry this anointing, and you need a new wine skin, so I can give you new oil and new wine, and I will pour honey and milk into your garden. Return to your first love whilst there is time, or you will be swept away to your own delusions! My people know it is at the very doors, my holy visitation to the UK. It is imminent, this wave that is coming. Shine my burning ones, like never before!

Interesting reflection of UK-US connection – and Big Ben

Walking home with today’s Daily Telegraph  in hand I spotted this ‘stop-press’ News Briefing down its left-hand side.

Instantly, I’m amused at how the linkage in our spiritual and political lives, as blogged earlier, is now showing synchronicity in the troubles our Prime Minister and the US President are both having with their own people, not the public.

We can discern the ‘devil’ in the detail – and it’s being especially provocative over the essence of our ‘Englishness’ – the law of the land based upon Magna Carta versus European Court of Justice.

Ours presumes ‘innocent until proven guilty’ out of which grew a globally-championed Common Law.  But European-Napoleonic law is different, as Dave Chapman highlights in his briefing paper EU – There is an Alternative.

Moreover, in my musing over the possibility of that devil doing a double-trial run in both the established church and our secular government for the purpose of testing out if it could circumvent the fulfillment of prophetic scripture, I cited two Parliamentarians as its unwitting ‘stooges’. One of these is Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow, whom I saw almost trip over himself to grovel at Obama during his state visit!

He is the one responsible for silencing Big Ben!

A previous project manager and a director of the company maintaining the clock’s functioning have attested there’s no need whatsoever to stop it chiming during any building works. A Telegraph editorial Speaker Bercow is mistaken to play games with Big Ben comments:

‘…if the two Parliamentary committees whose job is to oversee the administration of the Palace of Westminster were unaware of the full implications of the work, who took it upon themselves to proceed?

‘Once again the finger points to Speaker Bercow, who is apparently digging in his heels and insisting that the plan must go ahead. It is extraordinary that the ringing of Big Ben is turning into a power battle between the Speaker and his critics in the Commons. This is something that could be sorted out with a modicum of common sense and a willingness to compromise. The nation waits to see whether Mr Bercow possesses the former or is capable of the latter, as befits the holder of his great office.’

Therefore, it will be astonishing if and when something supernatural happens with our iconic clock to gain the world’s attention, as claimed by Charles Shamp in what he’d heard from the Lord (Keep your eyes on Big Ben). OR, perhaps that stoppage is part of what is meant…:

“My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Let’s pray there will be a specific action that’s unmistakably of our Almighty God.

“WATCH!” Eclipse and post-eclipse visions – Veronika West

Two visionary events this week appear on Veronika’s Ignite Ireland Ministry Facebook and which I believe are connected. Monday’s on the promised displacement of demonic dominion and, first, today’s on spiritual awakening posted soon after midday:

White Door in Skydoor by Nattavut; credit Freedigitalphotos.net

WATCH! THERE IS A SUDDEN CHANGE IN SPIRITUAL EQUILIBRIUM BEGINNING TO MANIFEST IN THE EARTH, FOR A GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IS NOW UPON US!!

I see in the spirit three things taking place over the lives of many in this hour, A sudden Change in Direction, there are new and broadened pathways forming in the realm of the spirit, WATCH AND BE READY for this will begin to manifest in the earthly realm. In the last season many have wrestled with limitation, confinement, confusion, delay and constant detours. But NOW! In this new season many will be led by a new and unfamiliar way, you will hear many speak of being taken into “UNCHARTED WATERS AND DEEPER PLACES”. There will be a heightened sense of excitement, greater expectation and anticipation for we have truly entered into a ‘SEASON OF SUPERNATURAL SUDDENLYS AND UNPRECEDENTED SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES IN THE EARTH.

I see a New Door opening which leads to a deeper realm and dimension of the Spirit. (See Word I posted a few days ago on Darryl Andrew Fb:  WATCH FOR THE DOOR OF REVELATION FOUR IS NOW BEING OPENED FOR THOSE WHO WANT MORE )

Prophetic Dreams and Visions will begin to increase and many who have hungered for a fresh touch from heaven in this area will suddenly find themselves being woken up at all hours of the night with fresh downloads from heaven. There is fresh anointing and a greater flow of divine and supernatural encounters coming for many in the Body of Christ. I see a release of 3 and 4 Dimensional Revelation being experienced by many in the Body of Christ in this season. Many will begin see “beyond their current borders” many are be taken deeper, the eyes of their spirits will be supernaturally enlightened to see in a past, present and future dimension for the purposes of furthering the Kingdom of Heaven upon the earth.

I saw a greater momentum and acceleration taking place, “THIS IS A SEASON FOR GOD’S KINGDOM UN-STOPPABLES”, the spiritual speed limit is changing, many are already beginning to feel and experience this happening over their lives and circumstances, there is a mighty shift taking place, there is a divine disruption and a demonic displacement that is beginning to manifest in the earthly realm, BE READY IN AND OUT OF SEASON! I see that long-awaited Answers to prayer will begin to suddenly manifest in the natural realm, there is a fresh oil of the Breaker’s Anointing being released over prayers of Intercession, WATCH! For Supernatural Miracles are going to suddenly spring forth in this season which will lead many to radical repentance, deliverance and salvation.

GET READY, GET READY, GET READY FOR A NEW DIRECTION, A DEEPER DIMENSION AND A GREATER MOMENTUM WILL BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE OVER YOUR LIVES IN THIS SEASON”

Now Monday’s, the day of the total solar eclipse across the United States:

WATCH! FOR NOW A DIVINE DISPLACEMENT OF DEMONIC DOMINION WILL SUDDENLY BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE UPON THE EARTH”…!

Some of you will remember that I shared two very powerful spirits encounters where twice I was taken into the Court Room of Heaven and shown both open and sealed Books of many Nations. Today as I was praying for the Nation of America and the start of the eclipse, immediately the Holy Spirit took me back to these powerful encounters and again I heard these words echo in the realm of the Spirit,

“WATCH! FOR NOW A DIVINE DISPLACEMENT OF DEMONIC DOMINION WILL SUDDENLY BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE UPON THE EARTH!”

My First Encounter In the Court Room of Heaven:

“WHEN THE FRAGRANCE OF THEIR PRAYERS AND PRAISES FILL MY NOSTRILS THE BOOKS THAT ARE SEALED SHUT WILL BE OPENED, AND MY TRANSFORMING GLORY WILL COME”, says God.

Yesterday during a time of prayer and Worship, I was suddenly caught up in a very powerful vision, where I had a deep encounter with the Spirit of Revelation, in this spirit encounter I was taken gently by the hand and lead up to two huge solid brass double doors, as I looked at these heavy brass doors I could see a sign of the “Scales of Justice” deeply engraved upon them, I stood still for a moment when suddenly the heavy brass doors began to open in front of me. I stepped inside and on taking the first step immediately I was overcome by a deep and dense fragrance that filled the air in this strange place. I asked, “What is it”?, and immediately the Spirit of Revelation replied saying, “My Child it’s the sweet fragrance of the Prayers and Praises of My people”!

Then the Spirit of Revelation lead me further inside the room, now I could see what looked like a very large Court room, At that very moment I suddenly became aware of Warring Angels who were standing in the four corners of the room, then the Spirit of Revelation spoke and said, “Child Be Still, Do not Fear”! As I dared to look again upon these mighty Angelic beings I could see that their faces were fierce and bold, these beings burned like a blazing Fire but they were not consumed, but rather the Fire within them seemed to burn more and more intense as we drew closer to them, these fiery beings were huge in stature and very powerful in appearance, they stood absolutely still almost as if standing at attention, each one totally undistracted and undeterred by my presence, it was as if I was not even in the room.

Then the Spirit spoke again and said to me, “Daughter Come closer”, as I drew nearer He lead me up to a large marble table, its enormous size filled half of the room, as I looked upon the table I could see hundreds upon hundreds of Books. Some Books lay fully opened while others were sealed shut, As I followed even closer, I saw that the books had the Names of different Nations engraved upon the front of them, as I looked again I could see that the Books that lay open upon the table had hundreds upon hundreds of entries written upon their pages, line by line each entry was written in gold, I saw Debits and Credits and each entry seemed perfectly recorded, But Before I could ask, the Spirit of Revelation spoke and said,

“Daughter See, The Books of the Nations are NOW being Balanced and Reconciled in this hour, and the gavel of My Justice and Vindication is coming down, For I am bringing compensation and recompense to My people in this hour and season”.

Now As I listened carefully to what the Spirit was saying, my hand moved slowly towards one of the sealed Books that lay upon the table, immediately the Spirit gently touched my hand and said “Child it is not time yet, but soon”, At that moment I understood, and the Spirit of Revelation whispered again, “Beloved, All the Books will be opened and All will be Vindicated, All will be Reconciled and All will see My Justice and All will be compensated”, after hearing these words I was lead by the Spirit out of the Court room and I watched as the large double doors closed behind me.

Then the Spirit of Revelation said these words to me,

“Daughter now go and tell My people to Open their mouths and let the sound of My Word go forth into the Nations, tell them the sound of My Word NOW Awakens the Roar of the Lion of Judah across the land, tell them that the sound of My Word is battering ram that goes forth to break down every stronghold of darkness and destruction, tell them the Sound of My Word goes forth like a hammer that smashes rocks to pieces”..!

Then again He spoke saying,

“Daughter go and tell My people to Open their mouths and speak forth My Word and it will go forth to pierce and penetrate the darkest of darkness, tell My people that the Power of My Word will forge highways in the realms of the Spirit for the Rivers of My Glory to Come, Daughter go tell My people to Go up to the high places, tell them that when the fragrance of their prayers and their Praises fill My nostrils the Books that are sealed shut will be opened and My Transforming Glory will Come, My Justice and Vindication will Come, My Compensation will come and I will pour out Healing and Restoration upon their land. Daughter now go and tell My people to Eat My Word, to Speak My Word and to Run with the Roar…!”

Then I came out of the Vision!!

My Second Encounter (7 months later) in the Court Room of Heaven:

Now In my second encounter in the Court Room of Heaven I found myself standing before the Council Of Heaven and I HEARD THESE WORDS, “DAUGHTER THE TIME IS NOW”, THEN SUDDENLY I SAW AND FELT A MIGHTY RUSHING WIND AND THE BOOKS OF THE NATIONS THAT WERE SEALED SHUT WERE NOW BEING OPENED AND I SAW THE GLORY OF THE LORD DESCENDING UPON THE NATIONS IN A CLOUD OF BLAZING FIRE, A GREAT AND TERRIBLE SHAKING BEGAN TO TAKE PLACE UPON THE EARTH, I WATCHED AS HIS HAND OF JUSTICE AND VINDICATION MOVED SWIFTLY AND POWERFULLY UPON THE NATIONS, I WATCHED AS THE POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES OF DARKNESS THAT HELD AND OCCUPIED REGIONS WERE SHAKEN VIOLENTLY.

Then I heard these words, “WATCH! FOR A DIVINE DISPLACEMENT OF DEMONIC DOMINION WILL SUDDENLY BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE UPON THE EARTH”!

Today’s and one month away’s awesome events in the heavens

Saturday was ‘fortunate’ in my being able to blog quickly on the significance of today’s heavenly event – the total solar eclipse that’s crossing the United States from west to east – but there wasn’t time to give any specifics as to what to watch for in Mark Biltz’ in-depth teaching.

Moreover, an even more astonishing matter not only links today’s (Monday 21st August) stellar event of being at the start of the new month of Elul (the month of preparatory repentance leading into the Jewish New Year) with its close at the two-day feast of Rosh Hashannah, but also with a secular, global declaration on 21st September – as foretold about 1,967 years ago in one of the earliest, if not the very first, Spirit-inspired documents of the Christian church – Apostle Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians!

So let me draw your attention to the points Mark makes, as in Ernest Hay’s video extract of CHP’s service on Sunday 13th August:

As mentioned in that post, Mark’s teaching is worth watching in its entirety in order to grasp the enormity of what’s happening and its relevance to holy scripture. I suggest you note his references to significant feasts and start of month dates in Jewish calendar and points I particularly want to highlight may be heard from these time marks:

  • 0:46:00 – astronomical mechanism of eclipses and lunar basis of God’s calendar
  • 0:48:45 – ratios of moon : sun size = earth-moon : earth-sun distances = 1:400
  • 0:49:40 – archaic form of Hebrew letter ‘tav’ is ‘X’ with numerical value of 400
  • [‘tav’, means ‘sign, mark, signal or monument’; so sun/moon ratio means signs!]
  • 0:54:00 – total eclipse over eastern Ottoman Empire on 21 Aug 1914, (1st Elul)
  • 0:56:00 – 1st Elul 21 August 2017 solar eclipse path of totality 70 miles wide
  • 0:56:34 – unusually will be over land and across America – first since 1776!
  • 0:57:00 – X-shape of paths of today’s eclipse and on 1st Nisan in 7 years (2024)
  • 0:59:20 – astronomical location of today’s eclipse is in constellation Leo
  • 1:00:00 – the alignment of planets on 23rd Sept in Virgo matches Rev 12 ‘woman’
  • 1:04:05 – UN’s annual International Day of Peace inaugurated 11 Sept 2001
  • 1:04:30 – dates changed to 21st September with different theme each year
  • 1:04:55 – for first time in 15 years Day of Peace falls on Rosh Hashanah
  • 1:05:20 – the theme for 2017-18 is Peace, Respect, Safety and Dignity’.

Note that Apostle Paul conveyed to the early church what he’d learned direct from the Lord Jesus Christ on that subject:

‘But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.’  (1 Thess 5:1-4 NKJV courtesy Biblegateway.com)

This is what I was referring to in closing To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’… about the silencing of Big Ben in London from today, a month to the day away from Rosh Hasannah.

In view of the Jewish calendar starting each month with a new moon, some question Mark’s statement of this eclipse being at the start of Elul.  The month is reckoned from the time the first sliver of crescent moon is sighted from Jerusalem and Mark has posted a clarification on his El Shaddai Ministries website (see home page video).

Readers interested in next month’s astronomical relevance of Revelation 12 may like to note its reference in Supermoon Monday’s ‘Blood Moon’ and the ‘Age to Come’ (posted Sept 2015).

A Reminder: Mark made his notes for the session available to attendees at Church of His Presence and a downloadable pdf copy of them is available via this icon  >>

Solar eclipse across America signals onset of repentance

RJ Dawson continues his provocatively instructive series on economic crises and divine judgement by considering the timing of today’s solar eclipse.

Real Christianity

   Today’s rare celestial event is strangely coinciding with emerging economic and social turbulence that will likely grow worse in the coming weeks.

         On August 7, I wrote and finished editing Part 1 of this series.

      On August 8, the Dow Jones reached its highest peak in history after climbing all year.

        On August 9, before dawn, I posted Part 1, Economic Crash and Burn. On that very day the market immediately began dropping, losing 335 points over the next two days.

A dream about the solar eclipse over America

Wanda Alger’s dream and interpretation is offered for my readers to weigh with the Lord. (It sits well in my spirit and accords with several prophetic words on the state of the church.) Thank you Wanda and Tony for the link.

wandaalger.me

I had this dream on March 17 and thought of this upcoming eclipse on August 21. I have purposely avoided reading too many other opinions so as not to be swayed by others. What I share on the eclipse is simply the PART the Lord has shown me. It is not in response to what anyone else has said. If it confirms other prophetic voices – praise God. If not – discern for yourself:-). My assignment from the Lord has always dealt with the condition of the CHURCH so this dream seems to speak to that.

I will note that though this eclipse on August 21 is an amazing phenomenon, it has been expected for years. It is not a sudden “miracle” or “wonder” (we can scientifically explain it) but God will often use “markers” in the heavens to confirm His dealings with man.

This was the essence of my…

Prophetic word on manifestation of flames of fire and of the Glory

AWESOME ‘COINCIDENCE’!!  Just in from a walk and checking emails and note this from and courtesy of Chris Bennett and UK Prophetic Words. As I copy/paste and read ‘ramping up…’ it all matches the rhythm of Kenny Peavy and band on my hi-fi urging the Lord to purify them...”My heart is burning for you, my heart is burning for you…I’m hungry, thirsty longing for You…”, and then plead, “Set me on fire with Your fire” …

Tongues of Fire Acts 2-3

PENTECOSTAL FLAMES OF FIRE WILL DESCEND AND THE GLORY WILL MANIFEST VISIBLY

It’s all ramping up! The wave just gets bigger by the moment. There is a build-up of Holy Spirit power and pressure and sometime soon it’s going to blow! I prophesy that it will have a different release point and a different effect and manifestation in each place Holy Spirit decides to let loose. The manifestation will be suited to the recipients – I don’t know how else to put it.

In a quiet church the manifestation will be quiet, while in a loud, bouncy church the manifestation will be more explosive. In both cases I see Pentecostal flames of fire descending upon the people. However, the result will be the same – an explosive growth in both churches with signs and wonders following. So – what will it look like?

The only examples we have are Argentina, Toronto, Pensacola, and later moves. There may even be some quite elderly saints who can go back to the Hebridean Revival of 1949–51, but it has been prophesied time and time again that this coming move will be different from anything seen or recorded previously.

I prophesy the Ruach, the wind of the Spirit, will manifest in meetings. The Ruach shall blow and the Glory shall enter. I prophesy that the Glory Cloud, the Shekinah Glory, will manifest visibly. I prophesy that those in the meetings where these signs are manifest shall, like Moses and others since, shine – their faces shall shine and reflect the Glory of God’s presence. I see people laying in the Glory as ones dead, only to rise again in a while singing and giving praises to the Lord, faces shining brightly from His presence.

The fire will fall and people will experience, many for the first time, the touch of God – that touch that sends electricity racing through your body, that fills you with such faith and power, that gifts us everything we need for our calling, our ministry. For some it will be a quiet peaceful thing; for others it will be like Elijah on the mountain – wind, fire, earthquake, and stillness. No two will necessarily be the same. I prophesy that each of us will meet with the Lord in the Glory – and we’ll never be the same again!

This is the coming season of revival. It is starting already and it is certainly coming to a church near you very soon.

It’s not the End but the Start of an amazing, wonderful New Day!

It’s ‘kinda-coincidental’ that early on Tuesday morning two readers left encouraging comments on February’s post: Dreams and visions of Big Ben at the prophetical midnight hour – and that I saw that day’s headline on the clock’s chimes being silenced for four years and wanted to blog about that (see previous post). And it was opportune to use a graphic of Big Ben from an unknown source used to announce an intercessory gathering in Canterbury under the designation “It Is Time”!

The first of those comments was from Jonathan and followed up his earlier remarks,

‘With these prophecies I think it’s significant (as I e-mailed you at the time Richard) that the big prayer movement thing in South Africa that started early this year has been called “It’s Time”, as that was the message at least one of its organisers said God had given him.’

So I replied to him about that same title being used in a Canterbury meeting. Within half an hour of his commenting Sarah submitted this excellent, revelatory account:

‘I recently felt God saying it was a new day and I saw the sun rising. I was surprised as in Jewish culture a new day starts the evening and then its darkest before the dawn. But here was a new day like our culture is used to with the sun rising. So Malachi 4:2 makes sense to me in this context.

‘A couple or so years ago I had a vision / God video with music (which was playing on the radio), it was an Adele song “When the sky falls we all stand together” and I saw the children of God all hand in hand with Jesus amongst them. They were totally pure and clean, they were blameless. They walked together as the sun rose on a new day and then Jesus spoke to me. He said,

“It isn’t the end, it’s the beginning of an amazing and wonderful new day”.

‘I haven’t been the only one to say they get the general impression that they are walking into heaven on earth. I think we are as the Kingdom of God is expanding and now is the time that God is making all things new. I used to be scared of end times, but after that vision I wasn’t the same at all because God gave me hope through it. That there wasn’t anything to worry about, and that although I felt at the time like I was still a sinner, the reality was that I was blameless because of what Jesus did on the cross and there was hope in the new day we were all walking into, totally innocent children of God…’

To me (Richard) this is particularly pertinent because I’ve been musing about the distinct and stark contrast between the futures of the righteous and the unrighteous, between believers in Jesus and those who won’t. Scripture foretells worldwide judgments upon unregenerates but that those in Christ will safely escape Father’s wrath. Yet, in rapidly approaching that time, how does that difference manifest?  For a while I’ve wondered if the divergent, opposing theological views may somehow be reconciled…and then a ray of revelation dawned…

In considering how prophecies made by Jesus and Paul apply to the apostasy of the recent Synod I blogged about the Day of the Lord and repeat for ease of reference:

‘…it’s important not to overlook the fact that in quoting Isaiah 61 as His ‘mission statement’, Jesus opened that scroll in the synagogue and quoted the first verse only, and then stopped short (Luke 4:16-21). The Spirit of the Lord God was upon and anointed Him to preach the Good News, to heal the broken-hearted and bring release for those bound as though imprisoned. That was the purpose of His First Advent, but the subsequent verses allude to the anointing also continuing in His Second Advent, namely:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

In other words, Jesus’ mission was to proclaim the ‘Year of God’s Favour’ across Judea and Galilee and even into Samaria. It was implicit that the ‘Day of God’s Vengeance’ would follow in due course, and the subsequent revelation Jesus was given into that momentous future event was recorded by John in ‘The Apocalypse’. BUT the reference to that dread ‘Day of the Lord’ in the whole of Isaiah 61 is miniscule – it’s only one tiny clause in a long very positive, uplifting sentence!  AND the chapter’s remaining nine verses continue in the very same vein! (Check it yourself in NIV-UK.)

Therefore, whilst they may be severe shaking and demonic darkness the light, love and favour not only continues but also increases enormously for all those who are in Christ!

So thank and praise the Lord for confirming this in what You shared with Sarah…

To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’? That’s the Big Ben question as the nation waits…

August is renowned as the ‘silly season’ for odd and weird stories because of the holiday period’s dearth of normal, newsworthy events. Yesterday’s banner headline shown below seems simply part of that season because of the Health & Safety aspects – but that belies the status of a significant symbol of our nation’s identity.

The disruption of our famous clock’s mechanism strikes at our heart but not necessarily for the reasons stated in the Telegraph, its editorial and news of MPs’ anger at being kept in the dark over details of the proposed work!  [Today: Theresa May says “It can’t be right for Big Ben to be silenced for four years”.]

Regular readers of this blog are well aware not only of Big Ben’s symbolic importance but also and more especially of the many words and dreams about it at the prophetical ‘midnight hour’. So whatever the outcome of the present rumpus, it won’t surprise the Lord for He could be in the discussions and use them to bring about His purposes, or else work around them to achieve His sovereign will for Britain, thereby getting us fully ‘in sync’ with His will. (As in the word for 2014-16 brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone in her ‘Clarion Call’.)

Tuesday 15 August ‘Final’ morning broadsheet edition (tap for digital version)

It wasn’t until later yesterday that I caught up with news and activity on this blog and was very pleased to notice a number of past posts had shot into the popular posts listing. So, I stuck them temporarily to the home page for quick reference and now replace them with this post.

A summary of some points which may be applicable should thus prove useful:

  • R Piercey 2016-17 – “…Interesting in view of the picture I received some years ago of the Lion of Judah hovering over Big Ben; his huge paw was about to hit the clock face, where the hands pointed at 2 minutes to midnight. (I somehow knew it was midnight rather than midday).” …I believe it’s now important to share more widely what Rosemary added. Upon phoning for permission to publish today she responded without any hesitation, “Absolutely! now’s the time!”…“A few notes on the picture that hit me this morning. Someone whose opinion I value gave me a word a few weeks ago that I was a General in the King’s army; this morning I was led to read the story of Gideon again, and was reminded of his requests from God for signs. I then asked the Lord for a sign that would confirm whether or not the “General” word was true. After a short time a very vivid picture came to me of a huge bowl suspended on 3 chains above the Houses of Parliament; the bowl swung in the winds of secularism and resulting godless laws. I felt the Lord saying that this was a bowl of his wrath, which of course is a recurrent theme in the Bible – bowl, cup etc. This is not to negate in any way the positive prophecies we are receiving; many of us know that the spiritual atmosphere has changed, and we are seeing remarkable answers to prayer in our country. Nevertheless we are also called to repent, especially for what has happened in the churches, and I feel a huge urgency for this; we are in danger of losing the blessings if we are simply going to rest on the blessings. This is vitally important and I feel there is no time to lose; the bowl is tipping, and we could feel the results at any time.”
  • RB/TPuccio, Feb 2017 – ‘Today, as I prepare this compilation I draw Tony’s attention to Rosemary’s reminder on the previous blog of her picture of Big Ben and he asks for my ‘take’ on this and “What’s the Lord saying to you?” Well I didn’t have time to even think and ask Him, but was just running with my spirit’s ‘gut instinct’ as a ‘joiner of prophetic dots’ (as Glasgow calls me). So I reply that I’m busy compiling this account and will seek Him later – BUT then get a quick nudge to add, “‘…immediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now! Tony replies, “Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.”
  • T Puccio March 2017 – “I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.’  
  • C Shamp June 2017 – Keep your eyes upon Big Ben something supernatural is about to be seen. As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say, “My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Please note full historical listing including relevance to the 2005 & 2017 terrorist attacks plus informative contributions in Dreams & Visions of Big Ben at the Midnight Hour. Also consider reading, Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben.

Let us take all those words received and delivered to the Lord in prayer and wait upon Him.

Lastly, it’s particularly fascinating the change in the clock’s chiming set for 21st August is one month to the day before Rosh Hashana, the ‘head of year’ for Jewish New Year 5778, with its unconnected relevance to Biblical End-times prophesied in  1 Thess 5:3 – ‘(The Day of the Lord will come…) while people are saying “Peace and Safety”…!!  

More on this another time…

Vision and report of change in N Korea’s president and people

We have a couple of encouraging developments relating to the major prophetic words of last January and April and a recent vision of North Korea’s president Kim Jon-ung.

First, the Telegraph’s report Kim-Jon-ung ‘no longer seen as god’ as worshiping North Koreans ‘place their faith elsewhere’.:

The extremely harsh treatment meted out to anyone practising anything other than the state’s form of communism and deification of its presidents has been confirmed by a defector who’s since become a member of the Seoul-based Worldwide Coalition to Stop Genocide in North Korea. According to the report,

 “Officially sanctioned persecution of people for religious reasons is still there and, I would say, even stronger than before”. But subtle changes are slowly becoming visible, said the defector, who declined to be named as he is active in assisting underground churches operating in the North.

“In the past, the people were told to worship the Kim family as their god, but many North Koreans no longer respect Kim Jong-un”, he said. “That means they are looking for something else to sustain their faith.

 “In some places, that has led to the emergence of shamens, but the Christian church is also growing and deepening its roots there”, he said.

“Even though people know they could be sent to prison – or worse – they are still choosing to worship, and that means that more cracks are appearing in the regime and the system”, he added.

Secondly, a Nebuchadnezzar-type vision and prophetic word on Kim Jong-ung and featuring two prominent Christians is recounted by Veronica West on 11 August.

The two seen praying with him are Bill Johnson of Bethel California and South African Rodney Howard-Browne.
