We arrive at the end of a series of ‘spiritual GPS’ alerts I noticed over end-January and early into February, starting with an influx of calls for intercession and related prophetic words and visions, including references to Brexit, national shaking, the office of prophet being given ‘teeth’ and promises of God’s people being powerfully visited by Holy Spirit.
I’m sure most readers are aware of feeling presumptuous when venturing into what may be of, or from, the Lord. It’s always a welcome relief and encouragement when we get clear confirmation of our thoughts and actions, either direct from Him or through His Holy Spirit’s directing brothers of sisters.
And so it’s marvellous to get confirmation of the hypothetical concept and methodology I’d noted a few years ago, and then empirically observed their repeated manifestations!
[For newer readers: on occasions a cluster of related prophetic words arrive almost simultaneously, or about the same date, from the UK and other countries. It’s like a shower of jigsaw pieces from the Lord that fit together to produce a ‘picture’: or, as though He uses a spiritual GPS as a Global Prophecy Signalling system. David Stark at the Glasgow Prophetic Centre has described my gifting in this area as “joining up prophetic dots”.]
This time however, one of my participants (or ‘system components’) brings an amazing account of their role in a similar scenario – and it connects into my personal history!
Before telling about that surprise, however, let’s remind ourselves of the current ‘signals’ comprising GPS#11 in the sequence of my awareness and actions (ie. not by Part No):
- ‘Anne D’ asks about 2Chron 7:14 and my knowledge of any calls to intercede for the nation and shares her thoughts and prayers (31 Jan with follow-up twice)
- ‘Peter A’ emails copy of David Hathaway’s ‘Call for Day of Prayer’ for Brexit, Unity and Biblical Reformation in the Church (30 Jan)
- Mentoring day: teaching on word re prophecy getting ‘teeth’, on one’s calling and
- ‘Suzanne F’ tells me about Passion for the Nation (3 Feb) – watch for follow-up!
- ‘Victoria’ in New Zealand seeks permission to publish Arthur Burt prophecy in connection with 40-day prayer-fast for Awakening in NZ and S Pacific (5 Feb)
- ‘Tony P’ in Arizona dreams about Brexit and need to pray (10 Feb: per Hathaway)
- ‘Leisa E’ sends audio-clip prophesying ‘Great Plans’ for UK on 29 Jan (12 Feb)
- ‘Suzanne P’ responding to Part 1 refers to prophecy of God’s power falling onto UK (1 Feb); I note relevance to recent dream and vision c 25 yrs ago (13 Feb).
Responding quickly to my request for a transcription of Leisa, Carolyn Stewart tells an amazing story that acts as confirmation of my GPS hypothesis. So thank you Carolyn for kindly permitting me to share your email on this blog (emphases mine):
‘…By the way, a smallish group from Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival met in… Bletchley on 20 January…where Malcolm and Alyson Sim delivered some teaching on the prophetic and much worship, prayer and intercession for the nation took place.It’s interesting as I received a word from the Lord about 18 months ago, after being woken in the night with the words, “I am making you a gatekeeper/doorkeeper. I am raising gatekeepers and doorkeepers to stand in the gap on the city walls and pray. I will restore what is broken and neglected.” I knew nothing of the prophetic ‘scene’ in the UK, or Brexit, prophecies on Trump etc, and had been in a long wilderness season. This was the first time I’ve received such a word.I prayed and asked the Lord what He wanted me to do here. (I live on the site of Bletchley Park decoding centre) He said, “I want there to be a spiritual listening station, like Bletchley Park was in WWII, to pray and intercede for the nation” – which took me back somewhat! I mentioned it to our vicar…and he took from the word that they needed to be a listening church. Nevertheless, having been led into several prophetic groups on Facebook, discovering Emma Stark on YouTube and the connecting of several prophetic intercessors in Milton Keynes, and my spiritual ears being switched back on again, I found myself in Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival, a small group of whom, decided to meet up, and by ‘chance” alighted on Bletchley to meet…The ‘Spiritual Listening Station’ has actually come to pass. Interestingly, a small group of intercessors…also set up prayer group call The Listening Station, and another Church…not knowing of what we were doing, independently set up a Facebook page for their church called the Listening Page.When The Listening Station group I’m in first went live on Facebook, Bletchley Park actually received its first transmission of a code since 1945. A competition took place between Bletchley Park and another listening station in Germany to see which could decode the message first. The BBC were there to report it (my husband who is a photographer took some pictures independently of the decoders at work inside) and BP won!
This news took me aback too!
Those who’ve read my Bio Info may recall my previous interest in codes used in 16th & 17th century England (Elizabethan-Jacobean period). Another Barker had worked for Elizabeth’s spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham and his associate Anthony Bacon, the brother of the philosopher, Attorney General and Lord Chancellor, Sir Francis Bacon, who also had oversight of the literary renaissance. The brothers were practitioners in the arcane art of cryptography: Francis is well-known for devising the Bacon Cipher – but very few know of his co-editing with the Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg the Great Cipher Book, Cryptomenitices et Cryptographiae.
Its illustrations showing how to encipher messages within ordinary printed text are most interesting. I recall one similar to our contemporary word-search puzzles! It displayed a printed page overlaid with a large zig-zag pattern like XXXXX. Letters within the pattern spelled out a hidden message!
Therefore, it’s especially intriguing that Britain’s famous codebreaking centre Bletchley Park has cropped up to confirm my conjectural concept of God’s GPS (Global Prophecy Signalling) system.
