Thank you to my dear friend Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS, for his kind permission to publish the following email of last Monday’s date. It has been shared with intercessors, one of whom makes this sound observation:
“It’s a good Word in that, apart from stirring the intercessors to keep praying, it gives a clear explanation spiritually as to why we need to pray. Some people have not got this yet and think that prophecies should not be ‘political’.”
You may wish to join others in praying as the Lord leads along the lines Neil relates below and to stand with him in making the stated declarations.:
‘Do hope you and Nina are well and enjoying our exceptional weather.
‘Been having some swirling pictures and thoughts – sorry to dump them on you but do feel called to look for others to join me in prayer on this particular line.
‘A few weeks ago (early May 2018) God showed me a picture of the English Channel parted from the centre (Isle of Wight) to Dover in the East and to The Lizard in the West. I asked if this was for an “exodus” and if so, in which direction? The Lord said to look again. I saw revealed on the sea bed what looked like hawsers stretching across the Channel. I decided they must be mooring lines and that we needed to cast them off, as if we were a ship leaving port.
‘The Lord said, “Look again”. I saw that what I’d thought were mooring lines were alive and writhing! The Lord said these are the tentacles of the serpent that seeks to hold Great Britain in the web-like structure of nations that he is creating. The members of the EU have been led into an unholy alliance which seeks to undermine their individuality, and which advocates a federal form of ungodly humanism. Until Brexit, no member state has ever sought to leave the EU – Satan is enraged.
‘What can we do? The Lord said the tentacles must be cut.
‘How? By the word of God that is the sword of the Spirit.
‘Over recent months the Lord has been showing me some insights into the spiritual significance of Winchester as the ancient capital of Britain, and the seat of the only English king to have the sobriquet “Great” (Alfred the Great). Winchester is built on strong biblical foundations and there is a reservoir of spiritual power and authority into which we can tap.
‘The Lord said to pray the word of God over the waters of the River Itchen which flows out from the city of Winchester. The river flows into the Solent and the Isle of Wight acts as a separator that divides the waters to the East and to the West. By the power of God, the water will be a scythe that cuts the tentacles of the serpent.
“So, I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes” (Daniel 9:3). It is clear from Daniel’s prayer that even though we think we know the course we are on, we still need to pray expectations into reality. We don’t know why it should be so, but that it is so is clear from Scripture, history and our experiences. God chooses to involve us in His purposes.
‘The battle is raging in the heavenly realms. As in Daniel 10, princes are fighting to retain their territories and they seek to thwart God’s plans. However, the angels of God are advancing and recovering lands: victory is assured.
‘We have so much to be thankful for, so much has been set in train by God’s design: now we most earnestly pray for God’s mercy and forgiveness, and for the full realisation of the restitution of Great Britain as an independent nation under God.
‘Afternote: I started rationalising my thoughts and applying logic, until I read Oswald Chambers’ devotion yesterday (26 May) “The danger with us is that we want to water down the things that Jesus says and make them mean something in accordance with common sense; if it were only common sense, it is not worth while for Him to say it. The things Jesus says about prayer are supernatural revelations”.
‘Such exciting times!’
- Wikipedia has an interesting remark about the River Itchen, Hampshire: ‘The local chalk aquifer provides excellent storage and filtration and the river has long been used for public water supply. Watercress thrives all along the Itchen valley in its once pristine, crystal-clear waters (symbolic of holy, living water)…’
