Visiting our Prophecy Library and searching along the ‘2011’ shelf I find a couple of items I’d like to draw your attention to. First, this entry:
At the first Revival Alliance Gathering in the UK convened on 1-3 September 2011, the pastor from Bethel Church in Redding, California – Bill Johnson – prophetically declared to a packed congregation in Emmanuel Church, Marsham Street, London:
“We would look back at 1st September 2011 as the day things changed in the UK.”
Welsh delegate David Edward Pike notes in his account of Revival Alliance Meetings in Westminster that Bill went to say it might take time for the impact of this day to be seen and felt across the nation, but gradually it would come.
In his blog of Revival Prophecies for the British Isles under ‘Westminster Conference (2011)’, Chris Welch of Hampshire notes Bill as saying,
“There’s something about September 1st. I believe you can write it down…‘Everything changed September 1st 2011’….understand that a Kingdom perspective sees the oak tree as an acorn…I feel like it’s a prophetic word over this country: September 1st everything’s different.”
Christen Forster, one of the Gathering organisers, reports Alliance Leader Che Ahn of Harvest Rock Church in Los Angeles, as telling him that in all the years working with Bill he’s rarely heard him make an apostolic pronouncement of such a kind.
So Christen writes, ‘Bill’s prophetic word in September was a declaration of the start of the new day, the new wave, the new season. The wells don’t need unblocking any more, the water is flowing, we just need to carry their life and refreshment into the dry places. And every week I hear stories that confirm that word.’
To commemorate that event I’d planned auto-posting this for 1st September in between ongoing work on unexpected snags during essential maintenance – but then in came a couple of items that seemed to relate to it and which I could quickly post.
THEN I realised how they seemed to endorse the importance of this 7th anniversary; as though the Lord is saying all three items are connected and are important in signifying what He’s doing in advancing His Kingdom!
Hence, my later referring to them as part of His ‘GPS’ system
AND there’s a ‘double-coincidence’ in their not only appearing within days of each other but also in their ‘echoing’ a ‘coincidence’ that happened seven years ago!
That is, another ‘God-incidence’ had happened in 2011 when I was astounded to have a dream that confirmed the above word Bill brought – but I knew absolutely nothing about that at the time!
All will be revealed in the next post: GPS #20.4 >>
