A ‘God-incidence’ struck last Thursday in connection with Dr Sharon Stone’s November mentoring day, and with what two attendees of that meeting were writing about on the same day last week > the necessity of gaining ‘air supremacy’!
Having arrived from Shaftesbury with a couple of friends on this month’s first Saturday, Simon Baddeley and I greeted one other in Caffe Nero over coffees bought en-route to the meeting. There, they sat in the row behind me and he and I took extra special note of what Sharon’s associate was teaching on how to bring God’s Kingdom into secular society. We never spoke about it. And neither of us would have prophesied, let alone guessed, that we’d both write about a special aspect of it on the very same day!!
So on the 9th I blogged about Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, referred to America’s involvement and closed by citing how a prophet’s example of changing the spiritual atmosphere to release the Kingdom of God may affect international diplomacy. (See ‘Kingdom Presence & Prophecy’ section in Paws 4 Thought: Kingdom-related Events Since Lightning Strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque.) After telling how personal envoys of Donald Trump received prophetic words the speaker likened intercessory prayer and prophecy to the military strategy of ‘air supremacy’.
On the 9th Simon wrote as follows under this published heading:
‘AS YOU GAIN AIR SUPREMACY YOU WILL SEE THE HARVEST YOU HAVE LONGED FOR’
‘I have had this word for a couple of weeks but I heard (the speaker) use the same phrase that I’d heard the Lord say, which has prompted me to release the word.:
27 October 2017:
‘I heard the sound of wings beating; they are huge wings and I can feel the strength that is being exerted as they are causing a large eagle to take off from the ground. As it rose up I saw that there were scars on its ankles where it had been shackled.
‘I heard the Lord saying, “I am freeing my prophetic voices” and then heard him say,
“As you gain air supremacy you will see the harvest that you have longed for, for as you win the battle in the air you will win the battle on the ground. You have been wondering why the harvest hasn’t come in but it has been because you have not won the battle in the air; when this battle is won you will see harvest you long for.”
Simon Baddeley, 9th November 2017
Simon is on the leadership team at Father’s House Shaftesbury and associated with Dr Sharon Stone at Christian International Europe, Windsor, and a few years ago gave me an accurate prophetic word.
The symbolism of the eagle is especially significant in relation to prophecy. It featured prominently in my first encounter with it in church circles, as told in Why Write/blog? and as my cyber-friend and blogger Tony Puccio in Tucson, Arizona, can attest too. Hence, a copy of the above picture by John Mark Long is hanging in our lounge.
