Another incoming ‘alert’, this time the first of two from overseas was received from the Lord’s ‘Global Prophecy Signalling’ system a fortnight ago today.
Over that weekend I’d been musing over the query from ‘AD’ on a call for more prayer for our nation and Suzanne’s introducing me to her intercessory ministry, Passion For The Nation and booklet Declarations to Change a Nation – plus Sharon’s mentoring day being of direct personal relevance!
Furthermore, I’d noted a friend’s email that evangelist David Hathaway is calling for a national day of prayer (more on this and the other overseas ‘ping’ in part 5). So an influx of intercessory calls was gathering momentum and Monday morning 5th February saw more arriving – and aligning with what I’d heard at the weekend’s meeting!
“PROPHESY WITH ‘TEETH’ – like a ‘Threshing Sledge’!”
In catching up with my long weekend’s cyber in-tray of email and WordPress/Facebook notifications I espied a courteous request from ‘Victoria’, who blogs ‘from the ends of the earth’ in the North Island of New Zealand. She asks for permission to republish my blog of the revival prophecy that Arthur Burt carried since 1937 and known as ‘There Shall Be No Ebb’. It now features on her group’s Facebook calling prayers for an Awakening in New Zealand and the South Pacific – and it was soon to be repeated here!
In its republication I’d sensed a possible reinforcing of that word in broadcasting across a cyber-platform and thus, as a prophetical declaration, in keeping with what Dr Stone had heard of the Lord blessing prophetic words with ‘teeth’. That is, the prophetic’s now going up a level, beyond what Sharon a few years ago on its fulfillment getting closer to declaration (ie acceleration), into delivery with a ‘threshing’ action now it’s harvest time. Hence for example, the ‘fortuitous’ re-appearance of the ‘castles’ prophetic word just after this New Year. AND this is borne out by the general tenor of new material coming daily from UK Prophetic Words (UKPW).
Also, each of the Saturday’s main sessions were of direct relevance to me; not only on very recent spiritual exercises (‘Engage’ with Jesus) and a 50 years-old ambition (being a ‘friend of God), but also regarding my calling 10 years ago to blog on the prophetic! So, my focus that week was to return to basics and blog in-depth on watching and what to watch for; which resulted in two new ‘About’ reference hubs on this blog’s menu – and I reversed the title of an existing one to follow them alphabetically (Brexit vs EU).
Then on Wednesday 7th, UKPW published Prophetic Decrees for Revival in the UK – Arthur Burt – ‘There Shall Be No Ebb’. Day’s later I asked Suzanne Payne whether or not she’d been contacted or read Victoria’s focus on that word in NZ. She replied in the negative saying ‘No other reason other than it’s the oldest prophecy for the UK that I know of.’
In fact, Sue had introduced the rationale for republishing prophecies in that post, viz:
‘Over the last few months, God has repeatedly been calling His people to DECREE the PROMISES that have been PROPHESIED over OUR LIVES, our CHURCHES, our CITIES and our NATION.
‘For this reason, I thought I would be good to daily post KEY PROPHETIC WORDS that have been given for this nation, so we can MAKE DECREES from each Word, LEADING UP TO David Hathaway’s Day of Prayer for Britain 23 March (see here )
‘It would be great if we could be in unity in doing this and SEE REVIVAL BREAK FORTH in the UK.
‘Starting with decreeing this Word from Arthur Burt 1937: I DECREE over the UK:
It (Revival) shall come as a breath…
And the breath shall bring the wind…
And the wind shall bring the rain.
And there shall be floods and floods and floods…
And torrents and torrents and torrents.
Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.
Arms and legs shall come down from heaven…
… And there shall be no ebb.”
Thus, we have a confirmation of the answer to the question AD had raised that began the influx of calls for prayer that I was observing – and now a reiteration and declaring of existing prophecies on both sides of the world – giving them ‘teeth’!!
Here are links to UKPW’s subsequent decrees based upon these prophecies:
- Smith Wigglesworth’s 1947 Prophecy on the Coming Move of the Holy Spirit
- Jean Darnall’s 1967 Vision for the UK
- John Mullinde’s 1998 Word for Britain and Europe
- Michael Backholder 2005 Word for Great Britain
- Geoffrey Pick 2011 Vision of a Sword, Keys and Champagne Bottle.
UK Prophetic Words provides a valuable resource to the body of Christ and, as with all prophecies and visions for any source, discernment and weighing with the Lord’s Spirit and scripture are essential prerequisites when reading and using them in prayer.
