An apposite posting for All Saints’ Day! And it’s accompanied by confirmations in the news not only on the day I received it but also today, as told at the end Part 2.
In this tripartite account Dave Hood continues his personal reflections and insights on a Biblical meditation directly relevant to Brexit. I note that they precede and are reinforced by the angelic word on the ‘final battle’ for Britain. Also, another author’s guest post will return to the ‘rescue’ theme.
In his first email (at 15:19) of the day to me on Monday 16th October, Dave writes:
‘The Lord began to speak to me about Brexit, GB and Europe / EU / Egypt and gave me most of all of it from scripture, hence the format. Here are 2 extracts from 3 given over the past 4/5 days. The third (from Isaiah 41) is written already in draft and forms part of the whole.This is how i got them…
‘Very timely and meaningful for our present. Its taken time to process within me..:’
JOURNAL OF A JOURNEY
I was reflecting on how the Lord, in the article The Lifeguard. How He pulled us away to Goshen, which is a physical geopolitical sign regarding the Nation and a spiritual one regarding us as individuals and the Body, the Church. Drawn away but still in the midst of it.
In the world but not of it
Pulled away to Goshen, whilst the judgement rages.
In the storm but in the eye
Near God, drawn by Him to himself, for our security but also his purposes
How he wishes to rescue us and save a Continent.
In my ‘mind’s eye’ I was taken to another rescue. When the Titanic was sinking, the Cunard Line ship Carpathia, which was 4 hours away, responded to Titanic’s distress call. Covering over 50 miles to reach her, herself dodging icebergs. To eventually rescue 705 or so Titanic passengers.
The distress call was known as ‘CQD’ – Come Quick, Danger.
I looked up the name Carpathian. Its most common reference is the Carpathian Mountain range stretching in SE direction from Northern Slovakia through to Moldova. Touching the western edge of the Black Sea. The furthermost eastern part of Europe.
I felt the Spirit speak … Just as the Carpathia was sent to rescue the Titanic survivors, so shall My Titanic send her boats to rescue Carpathia, for there will be survivors. This re-emphasises the fuller scope of all that Great Britain is in the midst of … is connected to Europe, even to its farthest eastern reaches, and to places we would not necessarily consider. The Lifeguard part 2 outlines this need.
I looked up some background … the areas (Carpathia) ancient territory came under the Dacians, a Thracian, people of the southern Carpathian region. Often in conflict with Rome and co-supported by the Scythians. Romania and Moldova and parts of Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine represent its current region. It is thought the Dacian-Thracian people are descendants of the Scythians.
It is thought by some scholars that the Scythians and Magog are the same.
The Romanisation of these areas occurred as Rome conquered and asserted it more permanent presence in the region. Hence Romania, as it is known today. Also many Roman gods becoming “functioning” within the culture. I single out 2. Who in mythology were thought to be half brothers. Apollo and Mercury.
Mercury is the god of financial gain, commerce, eloquence, messages, communication (including divination), travellers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves; he also serves as the guide of souls to the underworld; as well as associated with healing.
Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry and more.
Both were associated with healing and both had a caduceus / staff as their emblem. On which was a snake wrapped around a pole or two snakes intertwined.
***As I listened (I LATER)*** I saw the mast of an ancient ship. But it was seemingly being overcome by banks of huge, monstrously high waves and deep, deep troughs in extremely high seas. All I saw was the last 10 foot of its ships mast disappear below the waves. What looked like twisted serpent(s) writhed near, on the top of its mast. I did not see it rise. That does not mean it won’t!
My mind went to Psalm 2 :
Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”
… And I saw a massive map of Europe and various people were seated around energetically busying themselves concerning the Continent. I saw men and women in power, moving wooden blocks. They were about 3×2 inches and dyed of various colours, red, green, yellow, blue, etc – like tokens on a board game. And they were busy moving these blocks to different positions and making adjustments with others.
The scripture came to mind from Psalm 24 : The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
[*** Following this, I then/now saw the mast of an ancient ship sinking below the waves, the last 10 foot of it. It was all I saw of the vessel. But the mast had an emblem, looking like interlocking coiled snake(s).]
I knew it to represent Rome / EU and its power. If not utterly sinking, then in deep trouble, below in the trough and the waves’ crest; as I did not see it rise from its trough in the waves ! ! !
I then saw the massive map divided at its surface by the irregular edge of a curtain, which had been dropped down, vertically, hanging taut from above. One couldn’t see the top of the curtain. It had been dropped down by The Lord God Almighty. As I looked from above … I could see the right side of the curtain, the east side. Clearly visible was the mainland of Europe. To the left of the curtain, the west, was obscured from the east side, the other side of the curtain; as if hidden, was Great Britain.
The east could not see the west, it was hidden. As I observed the people in the east I couldn’t see past the curtain to Great Britain and I heard the word “mystery”. Some things, at some times, remain hidden to some people until the right time.
I heard from Isaiah …And he is speaking to GB, in connection with EU / Egypt
I heard – “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”, which turned out to be chapter 41:10 – this drew my eyes to some of the verses that followed …
v11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
v12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. 13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
These seemed to be the pertinent verses. But later after pursuing the ‘curtain’ picture I read through the whole chapter of Isaiah 41 and let Him speak concerning it (later in Part 3).
But Isaiah 41:10 has the word dismayed … means not to look around anxiously, with apprehension, expecting trouble, as if there is no one to help … resist that! Because He is with you, He is with US.
Then again looking at the ‘curtain’ that separated east from west … I was quite easily led to Exodus 14 > > > [click to continue reading at Part 2]
