The Lord’s moving across Scotland is being picked up by prophetical folk and it reminds me, maybe 20 or more years ago, of a surprising subtle sensing of something.
From the windows of the prayer room at the top of Ellel Grange I had a good view over the countryside in all directions. I recall feeling a distinct difference between the spiritual atmosphere in the north and the others. I believed it could ‘blow’ and bring blessing from the Lord to the rest of the country. As I was situated south of Lancaster then Scotland lay far over the northern horizon.
Many years later (2013) I heard Revd Dr Sharon Stone raise a ‘clarion call’ of prophetic words for 2014-16 to the nations of the United Kingdom, with Scotland in a prominent position as far as the Kingdom is concerned. Her profound words were re-visited upon the 2014 referendum for Scottish independence and the stunning 2015 general election.
Before reading and weighing the latest prophecies, let’s note these extracts from those words on Scotland’s identity and purpose in God (emphases mine):
- “You have started a quantum momentum for the rest of the UK and Europe for you are no longer at a crossroads but you have crossed over. As with the Israelites when they crossed over from the desert to the Promised Land everything changed. A warrior mentality had to be restored, prophetic activity released…
- Scotland you are not a mother nation like England but a father nation who fights for what is just. So prophetic warfare, praise and intercession will shift your land and help align England and other nations as well.
1. THERE’S A FRESH WIND FROM HEAVEN BLOWING – FROM THE NORTH OF SCOTLAND DOWN THROUGH THE NATION. The Lord woke me up during the night, whilst in Scotland, and began to speak to me as I was hearing the howling winds outside.
This WIND will blow with such intensity that many will be urged to prayer and we will see the release of the Father’s plans in their personal circumstances and in our nation.
Many small HOPs (Houses of Prayer) will begin as this FRESH WIND blows out the old cobwebs and ushers in the NEW!

2. WORD FOR SCOTLAND + UNITY NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN UK. – I’m increasingly aware of the spiritual warfare taking place over Scotland and of the eternal consequences thereof. For example, I see witchcraft on the increase yet on the run. I see it being beaten back, defeated and returning on its perpetrators – and that is the reason for the enemy’s ‘recruitment drive’ in that area. I hear the prayers from the Hebridean Revival echoing down the years. I see the Lord, delighted to hear them once again and urging today’s ‘Scottish Remnant’ to pray like that, with that urgency and fervour, once again.
The prayers of His faithful rise to Him as incense and that incense is filling His bowls. The time of outpouring is so close now. I see the bowls being tipped and just starting to spill out. The Lord is about to move. I believe it’s going to start on the mainland this time. Although the islands will not miss out, they will not be the starting point.
I believe it is starting North of the Moray Firth, but will spread South very quickly. I believe Holy Spirit will move through the Highlands and into Central and Southern Scotland very quickly. This coming move will not be slow but rather it will be one of Gods ‘suddenlies’.
First I see that Holy Spirit will move on the church, then on the ‘world’ exposing sin, especially corruption and evil, before moving on South again.
“The church in the whole of the UK is about to get stood on its head,” says the Lord, “while the rest of the world shall look on in awe and wonder.”
“In Scotland, the wounds of the past will be healed. The Blood of the battlefields will be forgiven and the stains removed! Yes, even the stains of Culloden and Bannockburn will be forgiven and healed. In England the sins of history will be repented of, forgiven, and healed.”
“Yes,” says the Lord, “There is a new start coming and it will bring a unity never before seen in the UK. The church, My Church, My Bride, shall lead the way with great repentance on both sides, great healing, and great joy! Watch, as I fulfil my promise and heal your land. If My people will turn from their wicked ways, repent and forgive the past, then I, the Lord God Almighty, will forgive them and heal your land! And the rejoicing, the freedom, the healing shall be such as will catch the attention of the world in awe and wonder!”

3. THE ROAR OF REVIVAL. My supernatural waves have been released upon the land of your nations. They fall with great power, and their roar can be heard throughout the cities and towns. My waves will flood inland and touch every home and family.
My Roar will release the captives and their chains will fall away as they move into a season of quickening. The babes in faith will grow into supernatural warriors in a matter of days, weeks and months, rather than years. Each one will see hundreds and thousands bend the knee before my Kingdom Throne.
Revival will see the heart of My Church rise into its rightful place in the bosom of the communities that it serves. My bride has made herself ready, and she calls you to the banqueting table, come and join together as your name is written in the Book of Life.
Isaiah 51:14-16 – The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. For I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar — the Lord Almighty is his name. I have put my words in your mouth
and covered you with the shadow of my hand — I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’” (NIV)
Philippians 2:9-11 – Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (NIV)
Revelation 21:26-27 – The glory and honour of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (NIV)
