DEDICATED TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
And To Every Follower, Contributor and Visitor To This Blog
What happened during the first week of September 2011, followed by the Lord strongly and repeatedly nudging me, led from my emailing friends and a few church leaders on End-times to blogging for the world to read my musings – should they deem them to be of interest.
I hope this ‘ping’ or ‘echo-signal’ of GPS #20 may give an indication of how heavenly Father, Son and Holy Spirit may be moving in our nations.
First, let me tell you about a meeting Nina and I attended seven years ago today, on Sunday 4th Sept 2011 in Winchester Vineyard Church. We’d been unable to attend the first Revival Alliance Gathering over the previous three days held in London and so we looked forward to what the Vineyard pastors Revd Hugh and Ginny Cryer were to bring. [Remember, I had absolutely no knowledge of what Bill Johnson had prophesied there about 1st Sept 2011 being a turning point for Britain, as recounted in GPS #20.3]
I was visibly stunned when one of the other Vineyard delegates described events that harmonised well with an unusually revelatory dream I’d had the previous day, Saturday 3rd Sept. Note the above graphic’s falling jigsaw pieces, with implied snowflake motion, are very similar to what I saw in this dream:
FATHER, YOUR KINGDOM COME!
“I’m in an open-plan, modern office environment overlooking a town centre. Upon glancing out of one side’s extensive windows I’m amazed to see a large white cube flying very low over nearby buildings! (It’s about the size of a Hercules transport plane.) Watching, I see a few more similar cubes follow and fan out in different directions.
“Then I look from a different quarter’s aspect to see where they’re coming from and am notice this view is from a much higher floor and over a different location! Then, a couple of cubes hover and discharge some cargo, which floats down to settle on the ground – rather as furniture vans deposit items outside a house.
“However, I’m seeing into a room being set up, as though the building itself is invisible! A large wooden table and its several chairs are already there as white porcelain bathroom furnishings descend, but remain hanging in space!
“In a flash I understand what’s happening and, without thinking, hear myself comment aloud, “They’re setting up The Kingdom!”
“Someone else watching disparagingly quips, “Oh, that’s your perspective”.
“Again I’m surprised by my immediate, unconscious retort, “I studied perception at Uni!” (ie. in physics and in psychology, and am thus making a well-informed comment.)
“A sudden urgency comes upon me to dash home with this news. Jumping into a car I find my normal route out of the building diverted and a huge vehicle tries to collide with me. Dodging that I drive up a slip road onto a choked road but find this very basic car becomes seriously under-powered.
“So I get out to walk yet find all hard paving has turned into lush green grass of wide-open meadows. The congested road’s gone and I’m sliding down a well-worn grass slide to then run, or move, much faster than I can really run across an extensive area. I head a few dozen feet above the land, as though in a glider, and some very large object or person rushes from the left to block my path. Totally unfazed, I deliberately collide into it and it smashes into oblivion without halting or affecting my movement.
“On the nearby horizon an unusual low building looms into view but, as I approach this destination, the alarm clock goes off!!”
Upon waking an initial interpretation came with great excitement because there were to be several revival meetings that month. I believe the Lord gave the above heading for my notes of this lucid dream.
All this needed weighing BUT I didn’t expect confirmation and more insights not only in connection with the Gathering itself but also with the prophetic word reported at the Gathering’s Inception Meeting in Nov 2010!
BRIEFING BRINGS CLARITY
So the very next day in Winchester, upon hearing a delegate tell about the Alliance’s leaders having repented on behalf of the nation, my spirit leapt in knowing this act of contrition connected into that dream’s bathroom furnishing! (It’s symbolic of cleansing through repentance and forgiveness.)
In the dream, the bathroom appeared after table and chairs were already in place, which may mean a meeting place with purpose and authority. Then came a personal insight spoken as though from Holy Spirit, indicating only those open to Him can perceive and understand the Kingdom. Also, whatever is being set up is not within an obvious structure but fully exposed to those with ‘eyes to see’. (Perhaps, church ‘outside the walls’?)
Later, I realised why the dream is directly connected to the Gathering. It’s because the setting was in two offices in Reading and Croydon where I’d worked and which came under the authority of central Dept of Environment with headquarters in Marsham Street, Westminster – as is Emmanuel Church! [The venue for the Gathering.]
Thus, I believe the dream’s meaning is relevant to the Revival Alliance event and its proceeding out into the wider Church as the meeting was jam-packed with leaders from many churches across Britain.
By the way, having noted the dream under the header ‘Your Kingdom Come’, I came to hear it’s the same title of the following week’s healing service in Winchester led by the Alliance’s member absent in the Ukraine – Randy Clark!
