Thank you to the Lord and to Carolyn Stewart for painstakingly transcribing most of Charlie’s delivery upon returning to Capstone Church, Ilford, Essex, on 19th October. Watch Capstone’s Facebook video (opens in new window), scroll to 1:37:00 mark for the start of Charlie’s greeting and then prophesying as recorded below…
“Many of you know that personally I’ve been contending just for, not even just revival, but for an awakening to hit the UK. You know, revivals usually last three to five years but an awakening will last for an entire generation, up to 50 years!
“And I believe that the Lord is uniting the UK right now – and I don’t just mean through politics, but I mean through the Spirit of God; that the Lord is uniting these islands for the wildfires of heaven to break out; for the Kingdom of God to invade every part of this nation, across every, every part of it; that there won’t be a place where the presence of God is not breaking out, where the power of the Holy Spirit is not evident, where signs and wonders and miracles are not just a part of our everyday life.
“I am telling you right now, that there is a prophetic momentum that is happening in this nation right now that is unstoppable. There is an acceleration that is happening – and I am already starting to prophesy just underneath this mantle that’s here tonight – but there is an acceleration in the prophetic destiny of this nation. And I’m telling you that no devil in hell, no satanic system, no agenda from the enemy is going to be able to stop what God is going to do. Because the Lord is uniting a body.
“And I’m telling you, the united body is going to walk across this United Kingdom and the power of the Holy Spirit is going to be put on display by men and women of God that are set ablaze – sons and daughters of the Kingdom – moving in demonstration and power of the Spirit that is an unstoppable force – unstoppable force! Hallelujah!”
Charlie then briefly tells a little of what he’s been getting from the Lord during recent travels and returning to Britain since last year – “I recognise that the Lord has a destiny for this nation”. Coming up the steps he felt the overpowering waves of the Presence in the upstairs sanctuary at Capstone church – “You know ,it’s one thing to see a thing prophetically and then to experience it!” – he continues:
“I was in Perth, Australia, earlier in the year; I believe it was in July. I was taken to a tower that’s there in the city. They brought me there to just kind of sight-see, and there’s a tower there in Perth, and there’s these bells that are there, in the city. And they’re from England – they are actually from St Martin-in-the-Fields [in Trafalgar Square RB]. They were rung during some of the greatest achievements and greatest victories of England. They are over there and they were transported over to the nation of Australia, in the city of Perth.
“And the Lord began speak to me as I went back to my hotel, back to the place where I was staying. I got caught up in a vision. And I saw Big Ben and I saw in the spirit the Lord was going to cause a sign and a wonder to come from Big Ben; that it would be a sign, because I’d been walking out this thing that I prophesied last year…and what God was saying, that we were going to have to walk through for a season in the UK, but that there was going to be a great awakening that was going to come.
“And, the Lord told me – in this vision, I was seeing Big Ben – and the Lord told me, he said I’m going to cause a sign and a wonder to come; a sound that’s going to come, and I’m going to silence my enemies.
“And as I was in this encounter, suddenly, like a fog – a fog began to come down. And a lot of times you think a fog is just something that’s not good. And the Lord said, ‘It’s the London fog’. And I said, ‘London fog?’ I said, ‘Oh!’ and He said; ‘It’s the fog of my presence’.
“I said, ‘Lord, what’s that?’ He said: ‘It’s the fire, the oil and the glory, and where the enemy has tried to come in and blind the people, cloud their minds, I am releasing my fog and I’m shifting the atmosphere of the UK; I’m shifting it to the place of my presence, my outpouring, my fire, my oil and my glory, the fog of heaven coming down to release a new sound out of heaven and out of the people of God. Hallelujah! Where signs and wonders will begin to be poured out.’
“I feel this so strongly…And about a month ago I believe, there was a report that came out that said Big Ben was going to be silenced for four years. And the Lord said: ‘That’s the sign. That’s the shift. That’s the major shift that I am doing, to change the direction of the nation’. ”
