This from Lisa Tierney on 9th April, as published by UK Prophetic Words, immediately caught my attention because it relates directly to my first encounter with prophecy in mid-90’s, as first told in Why I’m Writing.
A Word for the UK – HIS MULTI-COLOURED CROWN
The LORD showed me the Darkness and Blindness which presently cover the land. But He then showed me eagles, flying in formation, and soaring together above whirlwinds and storms. This speaks of the prophets and intercessors, working closely together, and He said, “I am their Protector!”
Then he showed His multi-coloured CROWN, and He said that the jewels within it are His people. The many colours in His crown also spoke of His Seven-fold Spirit, operating in the CHURCH – the Spirit of Wisdom, Council, Might, FEAR OF THE LORD, SPIRIT OF THE LORD, Understanding, and Knowledge.
Father says: “MY LIGHT SHINES THE WAY BELOVED! It dispels the Darkness, which flees before it!”
Next, He showed me His royal SCEPTRE, His symbol of the authority and power, which His Kingdom brings within it. This has, in His kindness and mercy, been placed on our land. And I saw GUARDS, which looked like Royal Guards with weapons, patrolling our land. These are His Armed Guards, which He has placed over our land, in the spirit realm, to secure and protect us.
And I heard, “GOLD FRANKINCENSE AND MYRRH.”
Father says: “The same gifts that were brought to honour My Son, I now bestow upon your land:
GOLD signifies Wealth and My Divine Kingship, a precious metal.
FRANKINCENSE signifies our prayer offering; it’s the most pure-white incense, rising to Him.
MYRRH signifies anointing and sacrifice; it calls to die to our flesh, our own agendas and plans.”
Thank you Father, for your precious gifts to us!
Father says: “Your armour of light must be fixed for the battle ahead!” (At this point, I saw our LORD Jesus as a Lion, standing on a high peak, and looking over the whole land. I also saw the Saints, who were marching in formation; in battle array.)
And the LORD said, “When my Saints walk forward as one, they push back the demonic hordes.” I saw the Lord’s footprints on the land. He invites us to walk in them, following Him as the people in the wilderness once did, when they followed the pillar of cloud and fire. However, if we do not follow Him in unity, then our enemy jeers and laughs, just as Goliath once did. And I also saw Pillars, which speak of our firm foundations. Father says: “These firm foundations are yours when you walk in My truth; a truthfulness both with Me and with one other. But watch out! For the Spirit of Delilah comes to steal your anointing and your Inheritance. It will charm you into giving as it needs to advance.”
(At this point I saw darkness, and the Lord showed me that this was like the blindness that overtook Samson, because he succumbed to Delilah’s allure.)
Father continued: “Tell my people that Delilah strikes hearts when they are not looking at the right things; when they seek to quieten their unease with material comforts and pleasure, rather than pressing deeper into Me and My Kingdom; their only true peace.
“Go back and warn them!
“My beloved ones, you must be ready willing to lay everything aside. Now is the time to CRUSH the HEADS OF PRIDE in your soul and your mind; you are able to do this. My Son gave his own life, so that you might have freedom within you. Lean on Me, and do not rest on your own understanding, which is so easily contaminated with this world’s wisdom. This is of great importance at this critical time in your history!
“ARE YOU WILLING to forgive and to go on forgiving? At times this can be very costly, even unfair, but this is how My Kingdom advances.”
“El Shaddai, your Redeemer is He,
A price laid down at Calvary.
Weapons of destruction- I’ll hold them back!
Listen to my heartbeat! No turning back!
Open your eyes wide, and see all around,
On where you stand is Holy Ground.
Waiting in Response from the King- El Shaddai.
Almighty Prince of Peace, The Lord Most High.”
Father showed me the letter Pey. The word “PEY” means “mouth, word, opening, or extremity. It is, therefore, symbolic both of the WORD and of REPENTANCE, which is done with the MOUTH.
This TWOFOLD meaning of Pey, firstly speaks of the effect of speech and written words, including the Word of God. Secondly, it speaks of the connection between REPENTANCE/SALVATION and the MOUTH. Both involve spoken words.
Therefore, Father is saying that we must be watchful at this time, concerning the words which we Speak. Our words must be WORDS of LIFE! And they will be words of life, when they are woven with repentance and the written Word. This will bring forth our UNITY, as one Body, and the hordes of hell will be pushed back! Most importantly, Father says that he will hold back the Weapons of Destruction that the Enemy wants to use against us.
1 Cor 10:
For our weapons of Warfare are NOT CARNAL BUT MIGHTY IN GOD FOR THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONGHOLDS. CASTING DOWN OF VAIN IMAGINATIONS AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM OF GOD PULLING EVERY THOUGHT INTO THE CAPTIVITY OF THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST
Prayer: LORD, may this scripture be our prayer to you. Help us to understand and to apply these great weapons that you have provided for your people, that Pride and Delilah might be destroyed from our midst.
We decree: “LORD, Let your Light SHINE! Father, let your seven-fold Spirit REST upon your Church! Release Heavenly encounters, and turn the hand of the wicked, and the hand of the oppressor back to you, LORD!”
Prayer: Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, THY KINGDOM COME THY WILL BE DONE on EARTH, as is it in Heaven Give us this day our daily Bread Forgive us our Trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one. FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM THE POWER AND THE GLORY FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN IN YOUR NAME, LORD JESUS, AMEN
Leviticus 26:13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright. (together) as ONE!
Zechariah 9:16 On that day the Lord their God will save them, as the flock of his people; for like the jewels of a crown they shall shine on his land.
