Ezekiel’s vision of The Almighty’s flame-like glory

It was an immense delight soon after waking on this the last day of November 2017 that its meditation in Sanctuary returns to the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel. Over the past four weeks David Strutt shared many gems from the OT prophets as a preparation for next month’s Advent season. It was instructive to dip into the relevant scriptures whenever possible, but I focused especially on those from Ezekiel and upon his life after receiving his Call 2,600 years ago!

After having blogged or read posts and comments on visions of holy fire, my eyes almost popped out upon reading…

Day 335 – November 30th

‘We cannot leave Ezekiel without going back to the beginning, to meditate a while on the vision that first put fire and fear and awe-struck love of God into his heart, soul and mind. He was by the River Chebar [exiled with the Hebrews in Chaldea/Babylonia] when a vision of heaven began. He saw things indescribable that are difficult to fully understand although our spirits rise with his as we hear of the beauty of the angelic forces and the servant beings. But there comes a point when even those pale into insignificance. [Am using New King James Version of Ezekiel 1:25-28 because it conveys a slightly fuller description than the New American Standard Bible.]:

‘A voice came from above the firmament that (was) over their heads; whenever they stood they let down their wings.

‘And above the firmament over their heads (was) the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne (was) a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.

‘Also from the appearance of his waist and upward I saw, as it were, the colour of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

‘Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so (was) the appearance of the brightness all around it. This (was) the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.’

Selah!

This is where language fails to convey and do justice to novel experience. It was hard for Ezekiel to describe this staggering vision, as we may gather from his repetitions of ‘as it were’, ‘the appearance of’ and ‘the likeness of’.  In other words, we should infer that his description is not to be regarded as being totally definitive of the Almighty.

The important lesson for the prophet-in-training was that God was present in Babylonia as well in Jerusalem.

It’s particularly noteworthy from the vision that the throne above the ‘heavens’ has an occupant described as being human-like but composed of, as well as being obscured by, the brilliance of fire.

Note also Hebrews 12: after stating in verse 26 that God has promised “Yet once more I shall shake not only the earth, but also heaven’ (per Haggai 2:6) and explaining its meaning, the chapter closes with its reason:  For our God is a consuming fire’.

Holy anointing fires coming into our worship, and the joy of the Redeemed

When discussing with the unknown woman He’d met by ‘God-incidence’ outside Sychar, Samaria, where’s the better location for worshiping God, Jesus instructed her:

“Woman believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither worship on this mountain nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we worship for salvation is of the Jews.

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers with worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

“God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:21-24 NKJV)

In our extensive series of words and visions on holy fire, therefore, it would be well to consider this published by UK Prophetic Words:

MY HOLY FIRES OF ANOINTING ARE COMING TO YOUR WORSHIP, WHICH WILL BRING BACK THE JOY OF THE REDEEMED

“The opposition to My Word going forth to heal, save and deliver in the man-made church will suddenly be removed. I will take away the false shepherds and remove them far from My Flock and replace them with My True Shepherds and a Rod of My Unity that of which no man can break.

“This will begin when I am worshiped in Spirit and in Truth. I will begin with the Youth. I will visit them and pour out through them My Spontaneous Songs and Dances of Deliverance.

“I will rid My Temple of the false ones who are blots on your love feasts, those Acolytes of My Adversary, those wolves amongst My Sheep.

“I will cleanse My Temple and My Vessels with My Fires of Anointed Worship in Holiness. I will then draw them, like I did Moses to My Holy Mountain, to be sanctified and consecrated for My Holy Purpose.”

Reminder of vision of Holy Fire falling

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti (Freedigitalphotos.net)

This month has seen a rapidly growing number of powerfully encouraging and uplifting words and visions for followers of the Lord Jesus to weigh, ponder and pray. Into that mix, especially regarding visions of holy fire, UK Prophetic Words has published this from 2009 brought by Susan O’Marra. Her final paragraph is noteworthy in connection with the state of panic in the devil’s camp that the Lord showed Emma Stark (here):

VISION OF THE RAIN OF FIRE

‘In the vision, I was looking at the world from a suspended position. I could see people and areas from a panoramic position and also at times, I saw things close up. The position varied as it did with the scenes and with the messages that I was given to understand by the experiences given to me.

‘I saw what looked to me like great fiery rain coming from heaven and it came in great drops or elongated streams. It was not like the natural rain that we know of, but it was like spiritually infused living molten lava, a real fire, but it was Living Spirit; the living fiery essence of the Father that was raining down towards the inhabitants below.

Wake up Welby! Reform may be on the way…

Oh that the angelic ‘Reformer’ referred to in the previous post would quickly come and strike some spiritual sense into the Church of England’s entire leadership!

As expected, Dr Adrian Hilton, known under the pseudonym of 16th Century reformer ‘Archbishop Cranmer’, responds to the weekend television’s Robert Peston interview in Welby: “I really, genuinely do not understand” Christian support for Trump.:

‘The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was interviewed by Robert Peston on Sunday. He spoke about the British economic model, economic justice, investment, skills, apprenticeships, automation, robotics, AI, equality for all, food-banks, housing, Brexit, Northern Ireland, trade, unionist identity, the Good Friday Agreement, public enemies, and media headlines which stir up hate and division.

‘Before you kick him, he also spoke about Jesus’s command to care for and love the poor, the judgment of the Old Testament prophets, the need to build communities by loving one another, and the imperative of reconciliation with God through Jesus Christ.

‘So far, so good.

‘Then Peston mused about the “amazing support” which Donald Trump has from Christians in America. “Do you understand why fundamentalist Christians in America are so supportive of Donald Trump?” he asked the beaming Archbishop.

‘Rabbit…. headlights…

“There’s two things going through my mind,” Welby cogitated. “Do I say what I think, or do I say what I should say? And I’m going to say what I think.”

‘Marvellous, thought the ‘Peston on Sunday’ producers, as they contemplated the imminent Twitter storm and media furore.

‘Marvellous, thought Christians everywhere: the transparency, integrity, honesty of the man. What a breath of fresh air.

‘And then it comes: “No, I don’t understand it. I really, genuinely, do not understand where that is coming from,” said the Archbishop, speaking exactly as he thought.

‘There was a bit of rambling before Peston reprised: “But the fundamental point is that you don’t understand why the fundamentalist Christians in America seem to regard him as being the answer.”

‘The Archbishop raised his hands, more in bemusement than blessing. “No,” he said, “But then… I mean, you look… you look at the situation… maybe they felt… I don’t know… I just have… I don’t understand it, is the simple answer.”

‘But the odd thing is he went on to provide an answer in the very minute following. Peston asked the Archbishop: “How important is truth in politics?”

For Justin’s more alert answer to that question read Cranmer’s full opinion here.

My deep desire is to avoid divisiveness and so, for other than indirect references in my coverage of the apostasy of the Anglican Synod last July, I’ve refrained from blogging about this brother-in-Christ’s personal frailties. Secular and Christian media have covered those all-too-spectacular issues of Welby’s acceptance of SSM as well as remarks on transgender issues in schoolchildren – not to mention the consequential surrender to parental censorship of Christian teaching in C of E schools (as here)!!

However, in his ignorance of a matter important to Christians over ‘the Pond’, some of whom are regular readers this blog, and because of my frequent coverage of our spiritual linkage then it’s incumbent on me to comment on this issue. So, by way of informing readers of ‘Cranmer’ I submitted this on Justin Welby’s bewilderment over American Christians and president Trump.

‘DOH!’ – my reaction to his comment; or maybe that should have been Justin’s response rather than utter befuddlement! It wasn’t surprising in view of his inability under interrogation to refer to basic Biblical teaching on sexuality, or on childhood gender confusion.

‘I’m not standing in judgement of either brother-in-Christ – one a British AofC, the other an American ‘sanctification-work in progress’ but appointed by God for ‘such a time of this’. In keeping an eye on the spiritual ‘Bridge o’er Pond’ I’m simply offering an explanation of Justin Welby’s lack of knowledge and understanding.:

‘As oft-said herein, very few in the Anglican hierarchy know the mind of our Father or they’d appreciate prophecy; not only what the Bible foretells about today but also as brought by modern-day prophets. Hence, the cluelessness about Brexit and Trump! Moreover, in allowing the CofE’s move into apostasy, it’s no wonder Justin cannot think like our American brethren do – especially in their adherence to basic Biblical belief, repudiation of Replacement Theology and their consequential, associated support for the state Israel.

‘As one example, I cite the panic Reuter’s film crew experienced in Detroit on 4 Sept 2016 after Trump not only received a standing ovation at a black church and praise from its Afro-American bishop, but also was given and wore(!) a tallit (Hebrew prayer shawl), a Jewish Bible and offered his prayers – the crew were told to cut the feed!!! (Last section of https://wp.me/p1Y1yB-8DU refers)

‘Trump’s personal appreciation of Israel and energetic emphasis upon returning the US to the role of ally unquestionably plays a HUGE part in wide Christian support for this radical president.’

(I later point out that Trump and his diplomatic team may come unstuck if they wish to continue previous administrations’ mistakes of encouraging division of the ‘holy land’ – William Koenig covers this in-depth in his weekly bulletins from the White House.)

Fellow Cranmer readers offered other sound reasons for Christians supporting Donald Trump as president of the USA.

We need to pray for Archbishop Justin Welby…and for the reformation indicated in Dr Theresa Phillips’ vision!

PS: watch video newscast Anglican Unscripted #348 – Baffling While Baffled where American Kevin Colson asks Revd Gavin Ashenden for his reaction to the astonishing portion of the Archbishop’s interview (begins at 2:50 point).

Is a mighty ‘Reformer’ angel to strike the earth soon?

In view of Dr Bill Hamon’s statements since 2008 on the Third Church Reformation, and the previous post of Emma Stark being granted a vision of disarray in Satan’s camp, as well as learning about a ‘holy, reverential fear of the Lord’ revival, the following vision published on The Elijah List makes interesting reading. In view of the promised outcome by mid-2018 its veracity can soon be checked. Upon considering more fully, I believe it warrants much greater emphasis:

AN ANGELIC ‘REFORMER’ WILL COME AND STRIKE THE EARTH WITHIN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS

THE REFORMER

As I sat alone in my quiet corner, I begin to ponder about the reformation of Martin Luther. The courage that this man had, a determination in his soul and spirit, to see the Spirit of the living God awaken the suppressed believer. As my mind became captivated by the very thought of reformation, I began to get a prophetic word. I saw an angelic being, male-looking, who was at least 30 feet tall, maybe more. He was standing with a sword in his right hand and a white (surrender) flag in his left. He said his name is “Reformer”.

Then, I heard him speak precisely, as if the sound of his voice was carrying across many waters. He was not God, but I knew in an instant, he was an angel of the Lord. I realized that the oceans were listening to the sound of the voice of this angel, and all of creation was responding. He is high-ranking archangel.

I sat very still…still looking with my spirit, when the vision had an interruption. I saw a bird fly past this massive angel. The bird had the face of the dove, yet powerful like an eagle. He swooped past this tall archangel called Reformer. The angel bowed in reverence, and all of creation began to respond in reverence as well. My heart began to pound so hard that I thought it was going to burst out of my body.

The angel began to move swiftly, yet he did not touch the ground. The sword, however, was turned upside down toward the earth, and suddenly he shoved it into the ground. Wherever the sword touched in the earth, EVERYTHING became green and full of life. Flowers that never bloomed before began to bloom. Life had emerged where there had been none. The look was majestically spectacular!

THE CHURCH WILL BE REFORMED

Then, the angel spoke very clearly into the atmosphere. I began to understand the sound. He began to state his unique purpose here in the below. “The Church will be reformed. It’s going into reform school-mode. The Presbyterian Church is going to have a visitation. Many in the Catholic Church will begin to cry out ‘No, no, we want the ways of the Word.’ Yes, these two denominations will begin to start a movement. I have been assigned to do my part,” said the angel. This time the angel was looking at me as he spoke. I began to tremble.

Then, I had another vision. I began to see leadership from all different denominations begin to come together and cry out for our Maker, Almighty. They said, “Almighty come teach us Your ways. For they are better than ours” (see Isaiah 55:8-9).

Still, enraptured by the vision that was being played out before me, I began to weep, “Could this possibly happen, Your Majesty?” I asked. “Is this real God? Will there really be a coming together? Will we cry out together?”

I could feel the tears coming down my face, red-hot tears. The angel moved. He had heard my cry. I could still feel him lingering. Suddenly, oh so suddenly, that presence that I love, the Holy Spirit, began to touch my back. I became very still and Holy Spirit, the Divine One of God, began to speak to me. By this time, I was undone by what I had just seen.

CALL UPON MY NAME!

Holy Spirit said, “Theresa, write this clearly: tell the people the revival they long for will be a reformation of what was, what is, and what is yet to come. I am paying a visit to denominational hierarchies, and there will be a shift.”

“There will be a crying aloud and sparing not (Isaiah 58:1). There will be a driving out of the demons out of our Father’s house (Mark 1:39). There will be altar calls for the Church to return to their first love (Revelation 2:4). There will be children once again turning to the house of the Lord and finding joy.

“For the end is not yet. I’ve told you this before. Now go tell My people to call upon My name (Jesus) while I am near (Isaiah 55:6). I have sent help. His name is Reformer; he has been sent by Me and will come and strike the earth within the next six months, and the Church will begin to cry out together and families will turn toward Me. I am bringing fresh holy conviction to rescue My people.

“I am looking for people to stand in the gap like Moses, Daniel and Joseph. I will find them. There will be a release of many held captive around the world for My sake. I will take captive the enemies of the Cross. For many enemies will appear as if they have lost their minds, and yet the end is not so.”

MANIFEST ME

For this reason, God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11). “Can You see this already beginning?” I was asked.

He continued to speak, “I’m asking you to tell them that I’m giving the Church fresh opportunity. Remember the earth is groaning and longing for the manifestation of our Father’s sons. MANIFEST ME,” says the Lord (Romans 8:19)!

“Now I say to you, there shall be a sign in the heavens; it will be called “Thundersnow” and My voice will be recognized, and you shall be assigned to My people, and say I am on the move,” says the Lord.

May God Bless us all as we obey the Lord’s command. I shall go forth and declare this Reformation OF THE CHURCH! Send that angel, Lord. Send him. Amen.

Renowned prophet sees devil’s domain in deep disarray

On Friday this video appeared on Emma Stark’s Facebook and subscribers to Glasgow Prophetic Centre’s Lion Bites were emailed ‘You Need To Hear This Word of The Lord’.

I’m grateful to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this transcript (colour-text RB):

‘God said some amazing things to me recently and I wanted you to be the first to know, so that you can be blessed and released to advance at this time.

‘The Lord said to me, “Do you want to see Satan?” And I thought, ‘What a peculiar question!’ and I said, “God, actually, do you know what – no thank you very much!” And God said, “But I’d like to show you Satan,” and I said, “But God, I’d really rather see you.” And He said to me, “Emma, you see Me all the time.”

‘He took me to a place where he lifted back the veil and, for the first time actually ever in my life, I saw Satan in the distance and what absolutely shocked me was how panicked he was! He was pacing the floor. He was so full of anxiety. He was behaving like a truly defeated foe. And I started to hear (or God let me hear) him muttering under his breath, and he was saying “My power is limited; my power is limited.” And he said Leviathan and Jezebel had gone to him – two of his great demonic generals – wanting more power, and he had no more power to give them because of the effectiveness of the prayers of the Saints. And I could hear him say that Leviathan’s teeth had been broken in warfare, and that that strongman was in the process of being overthrown and defeated. And there was such a sense of panic in the enemy camp, and also a sense that the enemy was on the cusp of an internal civil war because of the acknowledgement that they had run out of power.

‘Now you and I know as Christian believers, we don’t need to think in the morning, ‘Oh, do you know I’ve only got five prayers today; what am I going to use them on?’ But actually, Satan does need to think like that because he is a limited being. But at the moment, I believe God is saying to us that his camp is in a crisis like it has never been in for many years. And the sense of panic in Satan’s mind is because he is going to have to take his eye off the earth and off us to deal with his own in-house battles.

‘And I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that this is a time for great victory, where you can take back that which was lost. And the Lord says that Satan’s grip is so loose on some things that where there were some business deals which didn’t come through, some buildings you were supposed to own, some properties you were supposed to move into, some things that were supposed to happen, the Lord is saying that He is loosing over his church an anointing to catch up and to take ground, but also to ‘retake’ that which was already lost. And the Lord spoke the word “CATCH UP!” with such a force that it started to resonate in our thinking and we started to remember where we were supposed to be.

‘So I want to loose that blessing over you right now that God is saying, He is releasing a ‘catch-up’ grace; that the time that you have lost and the things that have been taken are going to come right back into your world right now.

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” And the Lord said, “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.” And many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.

‘And I heard God say this: “I will allow a bad deal for the UK in BREXIT, and it will bring a humbleness to the nation. And in the humbleness it will be an answer to your prayers, because it will break Leviathan off you. And in the breaking of Leviathan”, the Lord says, “I will rush towards you with revival and awakening that you have prayed for.” And so the Lord says, Do not fear the bad deal, for I am in it, and I am disconnecting you to reconnect you.” And the Lord says that there will be a move of God on the back of the humbleness that is going to come to the UK.

‘I heard the Lord say to the prophets in the land and people of revelation … that He is about to catch you up; that you are going to see regionally, and not just locally, that actually – do you remember when John goes up in Revelation and he sees all the churches of the region? And God says, at this time He is going to raise his leaders and His prophetic people to start to be a voice of leadership in national crisis. But He is going to bless you to be caught up to see more than you’ve ever seen before.

‘But then I heard God, just this week, say something quite remarkable. He says: “What sort of revival do you want?” He said to me, “Emma, the church gets to choose.” And He said, “You can have a revival that’s very similar to what you have known before.” And I’m like, “Well that sounds quite good God.” Depth of presence – it felt like water of glory cascading. And then He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now, and some of you just need to put your hand up wherever you are, because He’s giving back to you a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

‘So I want to say, be encouraged. The enemy is at his weakest. God is humbling a nation and He is rushing towards us. Be blessed.’

Selah!

A dream: the Lion is still roaring!

Over the ‘Pond’ and way beyond – in Tucson, Arizona – Tony Puccio posted this on Saturday in My Dreams and Visions 

‘I had a dream last night where I saw a lion seated in what I’ll call a regal pose looking outward.  Then I saw many, many people begin to throw spears and knives at the lion. I saw the lion lean to one side succumbing to his injuries – or so I thought – and dying.

‘However, the lion in the dream did not die but rather stood up on all fours, shook, like one would see a dog doing when wet, and the spears, knives, etc. that had pierced his body were expelled. Then I saw the lion begin to roar at those who had thrown the spears and knives trying to kill him and I watched as they became like dust and were no more.

‘Several things come to mind here one naturally being the monicar (sic) given to Jesus as the lion of Judah.

‘The seated lion, I believe, represents rule. The standing lion roaring represents judgement.

‘As I get further revelation from the Lord I will add to the post.’ (The Lion Still Roars)

Thank you Lord and to Tony, for this resonates strongly with an important message issued by Glasgow Prophetic Center on Friday, as in the next post

2018: the year of the Great and Mighty S-H-I-F-T – Veronika West

With acknowledgement to UK Prophetic Words for this from Veronika West, wherein she moves into bold prophetic decrees:

I prophesy,

2018 WILL BE KNOWN AS THE YEAR WHERE ‘EVERYTHING SHIFTED AND CHANGED’!

• S – SUDDENLY AND SEVERELY, A GREAT SEPARATION (will manifest both Spiritually and Physically in the earth)
• H – HEALING, HOPE RESTORED AND A GREAT HARVEST
• I – INFILLING, INSIGHT AND ILLUMINATION FOR GREATER KINGDOM INFLUENCE AND IMPACT
• F – FIRES AND FAMILIES
• T – TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS, AND EVEN GREATER TRIUMPHS AND DIVINE TURNAROUNDS

This is what I heard the Spirit of God say as I began to pray and intercede for the New Year ahead 2018, “Daughter, tell My People to Watch! To Stay Vigilant and to Be Ready, for the Year ahead will be known as the Year where SUDDENLY EVERYTHING SHIFTED AND CHANGED”!

As I heard those words, I was caught up in a powerful vision where I saw the finger of God write the word “SHIFT” in gold over the Nations of the earth, then I heard these words in the spirit realm: “WATCH! FOR 2018 WILL THE YEAR WHERE THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH WILL BE SHIFTED AND CHANGED, WATCH!

“For My Hand Of Justice and Judgement will move ‘SUDDENLY and SEVERELY’ in the Nations of the earth, and the Earth will quake and shake, and the mountains will erupt, and the waters of the seas will rise and flow forth upon dry ground.

“For a great SEPARATION will now begin to manifest upon the land and in the air,” says the Spirit of God.

“WATCH! For 2018 will be a Year of HEALING, RESTORED HOPE AND A GREAT HARVEST. For My Spirit will move to HEAL the Sick and the dying and to RESTORE HOPE in the hearts of those who are lost and walking in darkness.

“And the Winds of My Spirit will blow upon the threshing floors to sift the Nations of the Earth, for the Goats and the Sheep will be scattered from among you.

“WATCH! For My Sons and Daughters will receive even greater INFILLING, INSIGHT AND ILLUMINATION of My hidden Mysteries, THAT WILL IMPACT’ every sphere of INFLUENCE in the Nations of the Earth.

“Watch! For 2018 will be a Year where My Hand of Divine Retribution will move to expose and overthrow every throne of wickedness in the Governments of the earth; for a divine realignment will begin to take place in the Nations of the Earth.

“WATCH! For In 2018 My Glory will be made manifest through FIRES AND through FAMILIES, For My heart will be turned towards the ‘FATHERS’ in this season. Have I not said, I will cause the hearts of the Fathers to be turned back towards their children and the hearts of the children back towards their Fathers?”

“WATCH My Beloved, for 2018 will be a Year of great TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS in the Earth but FEAR NOT! For greater will be the TRIUMPHS AND DIVINE TURNAROUNDS’ that will be made manifest in the midst of those who WILL PUT THEIR TRUST IN ME!”

The Father has given me more concerning the Year 2018 which I will share in the days ahead.

GET READY FOR A GREAT AND MIGHTY S-H-I-F-T WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH; I BELIEVE WE ARE ALREADY BEGINNING TO SEE THIS TAKE PLACE….!

Decree S-H-I-F-T for the Year ahead 2018; DECREE:

  • I WILL SEE THE HAND OF GOD MOVING SUDDENLY AND SEVERELY IN THE EARTH, FOR HIS GLORY HE IS BRINGING ABOUT A GREAT SEPARATION IN THE NATIONS.
  • I POSITION MYSELF TO RECEIVE DIVINE HEALING, HOPE AND DIVINE RESTORATION TO EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE
  • I THANK AND PRAISE GOD IN ADVANCE FOR A GREAT MANIFESTATION OF THE HARVEST THAT IS COMING TO MY FAMILY, COMMUNITY AND NATION.
  • BY FAITH I RECEIVE A FRESH INFILLING OF HIS SPIRIT; I ALIGN MYSELF FOR GREATER INSIGHT AND ILLUMINATION OF THE HIDDEN MYSTERIES OF HEAVEN FOR GREATER KINGDOM INFLUENCE AND IMPACT.
  • I DECLARE THAT THE FIRES OF HIS GLORY WILL REIGNITE, REVIVE AND REAWAKEN MY HEART TO THE SPIRIT OF POWER, MIGHT, WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, COUNSEL AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD.
  • I DECREE THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS AND THE CHILDREN IN MY FAMILY WILL RETURN TO ONE ANOTHER AND BOTH WILL BE FULLY RESTORED AND HEALED IN JESUS NAME.
  • I WILL NOT FEAR THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS THAT COME BUT I WILL HOLD FAST TO THE TRUTH THAT HE HAS ALREADY WON THE BATTLE FOR ME AND I WILL SEE A MIGHTY MANIFESTATION OF EVEN GREATER TRIUMPHS AND DIVINE TURNAROUNDS IN EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE.
  • I PROPHESY 2018 WILL BE A YEAR WHERE EVERYTHING WILL ‘S H I F T AND CHANGE’ TO THE GLORY OF GOD.

Prophetic Scripture Update #5: Gog-Magog coalition solidifies, Assad’s secret visit to Russia

THE HOLY BIBLE CONTINUES TO DISPLAY ITS RELEVANCE TO TODAY’S NEWS

As I read yesterday’s (Wednesday 22nd November) Telegraph report it kept speaking to me of chapter 38 in the Book of Ezekiel. That’s where the Lord told that Old Testament prophet about a future international alliance that would come against His people.

As outlined in Update #2, Ezekiel 38 and 39 describe an alliance known as ‘the Gog and Magog’ coalition that will eventually invade the land the Holy One of Israel gave to His people. Most Bible scholars regard the various people named as forming that group  as coming from the land between and north of the Black and Caspian Seas. ie modern Russia.

The prophet received a word from the Lord to ‘set his face’ against Gog, a leader of those nations north of Israel and which include Persia/Iran. And in coming into battle he and those nations would be used for God’s own purpose for this almighty battle:

“So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel. I will not let them profane My name anymore – Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.” (Ezekiel 38:7 NKJV)

Let’s check the pertinent points of Middle East correspondent Raf Sanchez report, emphases mine.  His opening gives the game away!!

‘Syria’s Bashar al-Assad has thanked Vladimir Putin and the Russian military for helping to save his country as the Russian president prepared to host the leaders of Iran and Turkey for high-level talks on ending the war in Syria. Mr Assad made a secret visit to Socchi (Black Sea resort) on Monday…(where he) met Mr Putin for 3 hours to discuss a potential political settlement for Syria’s future…

‘Mr Putin ordered Russian forces to intervene in Syria on Mr Assad’s behalf in late 2015…(and) with their Iranian allies have swung the tide of war decisively in Mr Assad’s favour.

‘The Kremlin said the two men had worked to “prepare the groundwork for possible understandings” that might be reached during today’s (22nd) summit between Mr Putin, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani and President Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey.

‘ Iran and Russia supported the Assad regime throughout the war whilst Turkey has backed the opposition. The three countries have acted as guarantors of local deals in Syria and Mr Putin hopes they will be able to agree on a comprehensive pact to end the fighting.

Mr Putin has placed himself centre-stage in talks over Syria’s future. As well as hosting the Turkish and Iranian leaders, he spoke to Donald Trump by phone…briefing him on the talks with Mr Assad.

‘The Geneva talks (with Syrian opposition) have collapsed several times…observers agree it’s more likely major decisions will be made by Russia, Iran and Turkey.’

SO, WHO’s IN CHARGE? Clearly the Russian leader is! Although often disagreeing with each other, the leaders of Iran and Turkey kowtow to him.

The above Reuters’ photo of Assad and Putin speaks volumes to those who read body language.

MEANWHILE ON ISRAELI-SYRIAN BORDER

Previous posts on Gog/Magog referred to the Iranian strategy of getting a strong swathe of influence westwards from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean by means of proxy-terrorist, regular military and diplomatic activities. In view of their declared ambition of attacking and capturing Jerusalem, Iran’s military presence in the Golan and within 10 miles of Israel is totally unacceptable to the Israeli government.

Several bulletin point headlines in Middle-East Update #2 highlight those deep issues. Note the reference to a special ‘eschatological’ brigade in the Golan. One whose aim is undoubtedly to prepare the ground for the Shiite Mahdi to appear (with Jesus in tow!) – obviously a blasphemous counterfeit of Christian theology. (Read more on this in third section of Iran and the Nuclear ‘Fix’.)

Moreover, Monday’s long telephone conversation between Putin and PM Netanyahu ended up with them at odds over removing Iran/Hizballah from the Golan border (Debka). It would appear Donald Trump has quietly withdrawn the US from involvement on this front. Having close Christian input, details of the Ezekiel 38 Gog-Magog prophecy will have been brought to his attention.

Next, we’ll consider Joel Rosenberg’s ‘take’ on this week’s news…(click to read)

Exposure of sin, darkness and corruption as sign of God’s coming glory

One of many important words being received in these times, this from UK Prophetic Words reminds me of my musing last year about the increasing exposure of corruption and its connection to the foretold great shaking of everything (Hebrews 12:25-29):

SIN, DARKNESS AND CORRUPTION BEING EXPOSED IS THE SIGN OF THE COMING WAVE OF GOD’S GLORY

Two weeks ago I awoke in the morning with a clear picture in my mind. I was standing on the shore of one of our beautiful Pembrokeshire bays looking out to sea when suddenly the water in front of me began to recede rapidly and very quickly the whole sea in front of me out to the horizon was empty of water. I could see the whole of the bottom of the sea covered with rocks and other features which had been completely hidden.

I knew immediately that this was an indication of a coming tsunami wave and then the Lord began to speak to me:

“These days are like the time before a tsunami. The waters are drawing back, the seas are retreating and all the earth is being exposed. Sin, darkness, corruption and iniquity are being exposed as I draw back the waters that cover the earth. You will see an increasing exposure of all that has been hidden since the beginning of time. But it is the sign of the coming wave of my glory.

“I will sweep over the earth with the living waters of my Spirit and so shall my glory cover the earth even as the waters now cover it. It shall be as in the days of Noah but this time the flood shall be a flood of my light and truth and it shall sweep away the works of the enemy and I shall recover and restore that which belongs to me.

“Then shall the end come; then shall my Son return; then shall every knee bow before him; then shall I gather together all things in him and bring forth new heavens and a new earth in which my righteousness dwells. 

“Therefore, do not despair and do not be cast down but lift up your heads, lift up your eyes and see that which I am doing, for your redemption draws near. I do not wait until the last moment to help my people as some of you think. My timing is perfect, established from before time existed. What and when I move is according to my perfect will and purposes.

“Change your thinking about me and my ways. I do whatever I please for the sake of my Name. I am not the God of the last moment; I am the God of the present and perfect moment. Draw near to me and live with me in the present moment every day. This is your inheritance that has been purchased for you and freely given to you. This is your rightful place of rest that will keep you from fear and anxiety when you look at the situations around you, when you see evil everywhere and hear of wars and rumours of wars. Draw near to me and live in my peace,” says your God.
