NI-Eire Prophecy Update #16: Ulster-only ‘backstop’?

Roger Jervois keeping watch in South Africa has this update on Wednesday’s news for  Emma Stark’s prophetic word on the DUP and Irish Republic’s PM and Brexit:

“Encouraging signs from the NI/Eire situation as Leo Varadkar exerts more positive influence. He has publicly endorsed what amounts to an acceptance of the Alternative Arrangements working group, which both Boris and Jeremy Hunt are in favour of. This is great news (per BBC News. Veradkhar: NI-only backstop could avoid hard border)

‘Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar said a NI-only backstop would “not go down well with the DUP”, but that it is still an option. 

‘The taoiseach said that while he can see a route to avoid a hard border, the Republic is still stepping up its preparations for one. He said “One option is to revert to the proposal of a backstop in Northern Ireland and not the rest of the UK.”

Last night’s Telegraph Online reports German Chancellor being supportive of Leo’s ideas…“This is easily the biggest coup that Leo has engineered…..zowie!” (RJ)

2017: CoE sex-Synod sided with satan > 2019: CoE papers used in court against Christian doctor

My conclusion of two years ago today has, regrettably, proven true and developed into a wider issue out of what was euphemistically termed ‘CoE General Sex ‘Sin-nod’ 2017′. In opening my blog Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking, I note that the legislative assembly of our national church ruled against practising the holy ordinance of normal marriage by saying, in effect, as in this extract from the blog:

‘General Synod: “NO, not as it means keeping God’s word on sex and marriage! How dare we insult people with what You say and expect.” [July 2017 AD]

‘Thus begins the Great Apostasy foretold by the apostle to the Gentiles?

The Day of the Lord will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…(2Thess 2:3-4)

‘The great falling away from faith in Christ Jesus has been gaining momentum for years (ie. mainly by individuals). However, decisions and official declarations by the Church of England’s recent General Synod, the tricameral deliberative and legislative gathering of bishops, clergy and laity, means we could now regard the Great Apostasy as being ‘officially’ under way.’

Therefore, along with a great many Christians I’m deeply concerned to learn the CoE’s subsequent official instructions and guidance documents have been quoted in court as evidence against a Christian!  As a nation we’ve thus fallen into utter, craven stupidity and are reaping the consequences of defying the Word of the Almighty.

Dr David Mackereth lost his job with the Department for Work and Pensions after he refused to identify clients by their chosen gender instead of their biological sex – and that was not in an actual case but only when discussing a hypothetical case of a 6-foot bearded man wanting to be called a woman!

Dr Mackereth said that using ‘transgender pronouns’ went against his conscience as a doctor and Bible-believing Christian. As explained earlier: “I believe gender is defined by biology and genetics. And that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female.” (Telegraph 2018)

It is very disturbing to see a doctor with 26 years of experience in A&E medicine being forced to choose between telling the truth and his profession. In dismissing him, the DWP has violated the three freedoms of conscience, speech and religion in one go. We rely on doctors telling the truth. Imagine if they were forced to accept a patient’s chosen diagnosis!

In response, the DWP declared that failing to accommodate clients’ preferences to use ‘transgender pronouns’ would amount to “harassment” under the Equality Act 2010 and dismissed Dr Mackereth as Health and Disability Assessor.  Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, he challenged the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions but lost his case because the DWP relied upon Church of England documents to prove their case, even though the doctor is not an Anglican but a Bible-believing Christian! (Two terms  obviously not synonymous!)

In CofE Teaching Used As Evidence Against Christian In Court Andrea Williams, the Christian Legal Centre’s CEO, says,

“What really upset me though, as a member of the Church of England’s General Synod, was that the people who sacked Dr Mackereth for his Christian beliefs relied on the Church of England’s position to justify their actions. I have spent a lot of time trying to tell Christians, of all denominations, that our public witness to the Truth – all aspects of it – is vital.  When we are on TV, radio, or even in court we are often told that our brand of Christianity is not what lots of other Christians think. But, this week, for the first time, what the Church of England says was used as evidence against a Christian in court. For me it was another stark reminder of the damage caused by the Church of England’s abandonment of truth.

“The evidence deployed against Dr Mackereth included reference to the House of Bishops’ Guidance for welcoming transgender people, and the Pastoral Guidance for use in conjunction with the Affirmation of Baptismal Faith in the context of gender transition. I criticised these moves towards acceptance of transgenderism at the time, and Carys Moseley explained why the transgender issue is a first-order gospel issue.

“What is important for Dr Mackereth’s case is that the Pastoral Guidance says that transgender people should be referred to using their chosen name and pronoun. The guidance is, therefore, that Christians should not tell the truth about the biological sex of a transgender person. I think that, at the very least, in a civilised and fair society all people should accept this is, at least, a freedom of conscience issue.” (Emphases RB)

May the Lord now rapidly fulfill several prophetic visions of churches being shaken to their foundations…

Recommended, nay mandatory reading – an eye-opening expose:

The Transgender Issue is a First-Order Gospel Issue (26 Jan 2018), an introduction to which reads,

‘The Church of England bishops recently passed on responsibility for crafting liturgies celebrating gender reassignment to local clergy. This article by Carys Moseley shows that in doing this they perpetuate fundamental theological errors such as blasphemy, rebellion against God as Creator, dishonouring parents, and renaming God. The transgender pathway is shown to be a counterfeit of the Christian gospel. This will affect people’s trust in the clergy as well as the integrity of theological training…’

In considering those latter effects of the bishops’ abdication of their responsibilities, the author confesses, “This whole article has been extraordinarily difficult to write because careful investigation shows the situation of the Church of England to be catastrophic. We have there the wholesale public capitulation of an entire denomination, something truly sobering…(and it) is a first-order gospel issue. Its only hope before the Almighty God who loves us with a holy love is heartfelt repentance, and that must begin from the top down.”

Therefore, what was Synod siding with satan is now the Anglican hierarchy’s apparent subservience to it, not to our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus. It is outright apostasy.

If a Christian doctor can be forced to deny biology, there is no hope for theology (Cranmer – click image to read)

A prophetic word for the United Kingdom

Thank you to the Lord and to ’Victoria M’ and Dave Chapman for the following.

Victoria writes, “As I was sitting having a coffee this morning and rereading the words from Veronika West and praying, I received this word for the UK. I have been so encouraged by it (some of it was unexpected – the destiny that the Lord has for the UK) that I wanted to share it with you now!”

Word Concerning The United Kingdom

“I am making a patchwork in this nation and of the nations. Every part of society and area bringing glory to Me like colour and all coming together, knitted, crocheted, becoming something glorious. Names are sown into it like a wedding blanket as this is my commitment and covenant to you UK and NI. You are Mine, I made you to glorify me, set apart from Europe to lead it and to take your place – not in pride but humility. UK ‘saviour of nations’ but it is not you who does this but Me. It was never you and has never been you, whether it has been the sending out of missionaries or going to nations that are now in the Commonwealth, or in war, but Me. You are My instrument, My pot for My use. I love, I love, I love you beautiful UK and NI.

“My hand is on you to make you GREAT Britain again, once more, to take your place in the nations that I have set aside for you in the court rooms of Heaven to judge the nations to be my mantle of grace and righteousness to the nations. The nations that were your children (Commonwealth) are still your family, but this family will expand as it is My family and you are (all) part of the patchwork quilt of nations.

“Shine bright UK and NI as there is much more to come for you – I am not finished with you yet!”

Victoria M, 15th July, 2019

As with all words and visions, please weigh and test with scripture and the Lord.

Back to Biblical Basics: events leading into Jesus’ Return

Featured

This post appears in the hub About Signs and is the reference copy of the continuation of The Who, Why, When and What of Watching, published in February 2018.

In continuing our trilogy on getting back to Biblical basics, arising from having heard “It’s sooner than you think!!”, the following ‘signs’ foretell events indicative of Jesus Christ’s return to rule and reign upon earth:

Omitting signs that apply to the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 (Note 1) and those recorded by Apostle John in his book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, this selection is compiled from the earliest Gospel (Mark 13), augmented by Matthew (24) and Luke (17 & 21), plus extracts from Paul’s letters to believers in Corinth and Salonika, to whom he told the origin of his teaching – ‘For this we say to you by the word of the Lord…’ .: Continue reading

God’s humour in mechanic’s miracle and at atheist’s expense!

The Sunday evening before last we heard how God miraculously provided about 1,300 large bread cakes from only 200 that pastor Christopher Bird had taken to a Ugandan orphanage, but to which 500 children had walked for hours for food to feed them over the week!  Next he took the left-overs to other places and watched everyone getting fed from what he’d originally brought. Only 7 loaves were left, which were for the 7 servers.

ELECTRO-MECHANICAL MIRACLE

Next, a group told him on a Sunday morning they’d take him Monday to a neighbouring nation – but he needed to apply for an entry visa. So he had to get two visa-size photos on a Sunday afternoon in Kampala – but there was a city-wide power blackout!

He saw a 50-years old photo-booth on a pavement and spoke to its attendant who said it was unplugged because of the outage. Chris told him the God who created electricity and gave mankind the ability to harness it and power machines would make it function properly. He thus prayed loudly to the Lord and a crowd began to gather.

Upon sitting in the booth and drawing the curtain, four flash lights went off and colour photos appeared right away!

PROBLEM: it was a black-and-white only camera and took minutes to print photos:

RESULT: colour photos and so attendant mechanic shouts, “I now follow Jesus!”

ARROGANT ATHEIST ANSWERED

Two weeks ago today came news of Felix Ngole’s landmark legal victory for freedom of speech and my posting was reblogged on All Along The Watchtower, where it attracted a lengthy debate – but not upon the details of the case. A new commentator is pleased this ruling allows for engaging with believers for the purpose of enlightening them on how “ridiculous and erroneous” the Bible is!!  Therefore, he or she demanded evidence for and repudiated Christians’ claims, especially for Jesus and the Resurrection.

It is amusing that their next and many attempts to answer a moderator’s request for background details didn’t get published and caused some consternation. Meanwhile, moderator mused, “Maybe God didn’t like what you wrote?”  Eventually, comments were found in the WordPress software’s trash can!

As the site is a God-fearing one then He probably considers those contributions serve only the hater of humanity. Also, the Lord was yet to have a further, amusing play with this person’s mockery.

That their comments are hidden by anonymity, are arrogant, devoid of manners as well as demonstrating a completely closed mind, renders their arguments invalid. So the bin is where they belong!

In choosing an avatar icon and name that I was familiar with when an unbeliever active in its ungodly realm, I discerned the issue and offered my testimony as a witness to the Lord for their further investigation.

I was met with, “I suggest you keep looking out for those signs of Jesus’ return, And while you are waiting why not read the bible? All of it”  I replied the Lord is our judge and wasted no further time with this lost soul but pray he, too, has a radical encounter with Him.

That was happening whilst I had a hard-copy of Neil’s paper on End-times to peruse, and had just got Nicholas’ sermon notes (previous posts refer). I mentioned them to my wife but she doesn’t closely follow my blogging and was unaware of all the details.

I’ve now realised the Lord gave Nina the audible word about His return, “It’s sooner than you think!!!”, as though answering that mocking atheist in His own way – as the adage goes: ‘He who laughs last, laughs longest!’

Next, we’ll take a fresh look at the events Jesus told us to watch out for

Back to Biblical Basics: The Day of the Lord

Back to Biblical Basics: timelines of Bible prophecy

Easy-to-read introduction to the significance of Biblical prophecyIn returning to Bible basics I’m grateful to Neil Mackereth, author of Signs and of several items on this blog for permission to publish his latest, as submitted on 1st July. However, it wasn’t possible to acknowledge until Monday 8th – the day before Nina heard about Jesus’ return being sooner than we may think.

In his covering email, Neil mentions a nearby church “everyone calls St John’s, but I have had laid on my heart that it is St John the Baptist Church (its proper name!) and that it is on the Pilgrims’ Way: “I will send my messenger ahead of you who will prepare the way ……. Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him”.

“I absolutely believe that we are required to do all we can to convince the world that Jesus will return soon. Your blog is a magnificent and essential part of that process, commission to communicate God’s intentions.”

“I have felt very strongly of late that, whilst it is absolutely right and proper to pray into the tremendous shaking, sifting and repositioning that’s going on (which are in line with expectations for end times), and to seek God’s will and prophetic indicators about Brexit etc. we are not to lose sight of the BIG PICTURE revealed in long-established scripture. ie.

GPS #35: ‘God-incidental’ messages focus upon the Lord’s Return

Do you get the impression the Lord is turning our faces – as though holding them in His hands – to look specifically at the important matter of His return?

In fact, I submit to you it’s on God’s GPS system, ie. His Global Prophecy Signalling for the following reason:

My offering to a forum what Nina audibly heard on the Second Advent coming sooner than we think or expect, as recounted in Back to Biblical Basics, was met by a wariness on the matter of ‘timing’.

Many will recall claims, mainly by American church leaders, notoriously setting dates for Jesus’ return and which have proven false. Even the Book of Revelation’s penultimate verse says it will happen ‘soon’ – but nearly 2,000 years is not soon!  In my opinion, this timing is in the supra-natural realm where things appointed for the future exist but have yet to manifest upon the earth, rather like faith is the substance and evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1) – or as Apostle Peter explains definitively,

‘But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:8 NKJV)

I’ve blogged elsewhere that prophets don’t set any timing upon fulfillment of words and visions for such an insight is a rarity, and it becomes a measure of being a true or false prophet!  Thus, Chuck Pierce, Dr Sharon Stone and Veronika West put their reputations on the line when prophesying about major changes this month, as summarised herein.

In replying via Messenger to the forum I mentioned having recently received papers on End-times. Two contributors to this blog, unbeknown to the other, prepared them almost simultaneously in the last week of June!  So, I got nudged to close my response with a previously unconsidered remark, ‘It’s as though the Lord’s deliberately turning our faces to look specifically at this important matter’.

What I didn’t know was that, whilst I was writing, the Lord was confirming that final idea by GPS!  Upon sending my message and returning to the top of my email in-tray I found a new email from an overseas intercessor stressing this very issue:

‘I saw today the posts you put up over the weekend. Keep it up dude, that is your calling – “Looking for signs of Jesus’ return.” That is your focus…’

Therefore, much as we appreciate ‘rhema’ words from the Lord, it is very important not to neglect the prime importance of Biblical, End-times, prophecy. It takes precedence as being in the sovereign will of God, within which contemporary prophecy is interwoven.

Next, let’s consider those other two author’s papers…click to read > >

Back to Biblical Basics: direct Word on Jesus’ Return, and vision of Iran

At Tuesday morning’s coffee & cake meeting outside Haslemere, someone asked the worship leader to do some older songs. The first was new to me, but then came ‘These Are The Days of Elijah’ followed by Noel Richards’ famous song, so pertinent for today (courtesy paroles-musique):

“Great is the darkness
That covers the earth,
Oppression, injustice and pain.
Nations are slipping
In hopeless despair
Though many have come in Your name,
Watching while sanity dies,
Touched by the madness and lies.

[Chorus, verse 2 and chorus, then rejoicing in final verse:]

“Great celebrations
On that final day
When out of the heavens You come.
Darkness will vanish
All sorrow will end
And rulers will bow at Your throne,
Our great commission complete
Then face to face we shall meet:

Come Lord Jesus, come Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit we pray.
Come Lord Jesus, come Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

Whilst singing the chorus I noticed Nina look at me, then sit down, take paper out of her handbag and jot a short phrase. Her expression and shaky stance told me she’s being touched by the Holy Spirit. Afterwards, she told me that in the chorus she distinctly heard the Lord whisper in her ear, and thus in block caps (black ink) notes His words,

“IT’S SOONER THAN YOU THINK!!!”

Nina knows it’s not about any Revival but, as urged in the song, all about His Return.

+  +  +

I now ask, however, “Is that before, upon or after what we were soon to hear?”

The promise Nina heard becomes even more poignant by what the guest speakers from Elam Ministries reported on Christianity’s rapid growth through underground churches in Turkey and Iran, and thus moving rapidly towards the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:34-39 – the Judgement of Elam (Persia/Iran)

[WOWEE, I’m getting a very strong sense of ‘deja vu’ in what I’m doing, as though the event, situation and what I’m blogging has already been done: but this confirms it’s all God’s Timing!!!]

“I will set My throne in Elam, And will destroy from there the king and the princes,” says the Lord. (Jer 49:39 NKJV)

It was awe-inspiring to hear a young lady pastor’s account of life in jail after her house church was raided and closed. Also, that only last week an ex-Muslim 14 years-old boy had a vision of mosques in Iran tumbling down and being replaced by churches!

Afterwards, I mentioned this strongly reminded me of the declaration I heard announced from heaven of the “Fall of Islam”, and of the lightning strike upon the Grand Temple in Mecca on 14th anniversary of the attack upon New York’s towers (as recounted here and linked herein respectively).

So the Lord’s pointing us back to what His Word says about His Return….(next posts).

Love London – Friday July 12th, 2019

Notable that our ‘Keep Praying & Bless’ cycle (since 2012) closed yesterday with Day 70 – The City of London, ‘coinciding’ with Suzanne’s posted Declaration for the same location. Note her update therein for tomorrow’s event for your info:

‘LOVE LONDON: Thank you to everyone, individuals and churches, who will be standing with London on Friday, July 12th. If you have already downloaded the declarations, please note that we updated them on Friday 5tth, please check you have the latest version.

‘This was not part of the original plan, but God has made it clear that we need to gather to worship ourselves and we will therefore be meeting at the Wembley Christian Centre; Carlton Ave E; HA9 8LX; between 7.30pm and 10pm. Steve Abley will be leading us, and I believe God has given me something quite specific to release that night – please do consider coming!!’

Call The Nation To Prayer

CTNTP is pleased to promote this initiative organised by our Team Member and Leader of Passion for the Nation, Suzanne Ferrett:

Love London 120719

A day to pray, worship and very specifically make declarations on the hour, every hour from 6am – 6pm;  in homes, streets or workplaces on behalf of London.

We are aware of the challenges that face so many of our cities at this time but underneath the shaking and the issues, God is at work. He shakes things, so that something else can be established and there is tremendous potential at the moment for an outpouring of His Spirit into our land  to touch people with His mercy and kindness, drawing them to salvation. However, alongside He is also working to re-establish righteousness, justice, mercy and truth within our culture, from Government & institutions to every aspect of society. While these things are national, I  believe this is a…

Prayer for Protection: Regent’s Park festival – a warning plus reassurance

Leisa Ebere emails me yesterday with an urgent request for intercessory action, as well as a most interesting word from the Lord that may relate to the 1992 vision of an ‘atomic glory bomb’, as revealed on its 27th anniversary, and elsewhere. Leisa writes,

‘I’ve had two Park Revelations, one a Vision and the other a direct Word of Knowledge calling people to pray for the Regent’s Park Music Festival on 14 July 2019. Please can you post these asap. As I believe these are both warnings & assurances from the Lord? Thank you so much, Leisa 🔥🙏✝️

‘Here they are:

‘Dear People of God, I have had a strong sensing from the Lord today, 10 July 2019, there is a huge ‘plan of violence’ being premeditated to be carried out at the Regent’s Park Music Festival on the 14th of July in London. Please be interceding for protection of innocent people and bind the strong man of terrorism and violence in the Name of Jesus. Let God Arise and His Enemies be Scattered.’

‘Thank you, Leisa E.

THE GLORY CLOUD VISION

given to Leisa Ebere, July 6, 2019

‘I was walking in a large park with trees and I was on a running track and I knew there were wolves in the woods of the park and all around me. Then the Lord Jesus appeared and took my hand and said: “Be at peace now, for you cannot do this without me; but now that I have come, all will be well.”

Then I heard snarling and growls all around me and Jesus took my hand and held it and looked into my eyes and said, “Though they exist they shall never consume you, for as long as we walk together, they cannot cross the line.” I asked the Lord: ‘What line Lord?’ “The Line of demarcation,” said the Lord, “the boundaries have been set and the Glory Cloud has come.”

‘Then the Lord went into further explanation and said:

“I have always fixed boundaries since Ancient times and now My Spirit is being poured out upon My Sons & Daughters to take back what is rightfully theirs. People must understand the reality of Godly order for protection of My Sheep must be of great importance as the times and seasons become darker in the days ahead. My Child, the Glory Cloud has come,” said the Lord of Hosts.’

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #15: Eire’s PM and the Orange Order

Keeping watch with respect to Emma Stark’s prophetic word, and the climax of Ulster’s marching season with tomorrow’s anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne (1690), Roger Jervois’ emails me yesterday (emphasis mine):

‘Speaking from early ‘90s South Africa experience, this is huge. Three cheers in Heaven to the prayer warriors who heeded the call to pray for Leo Varadkar.

‘Read on…(from Belfast Telegraph)

‘The Grand Secretary of the Orange Order has said that he would be willing to accept a united Ireland if the majority of people in Northern Ireland voted for it.

‘Rev Mervyn Gibson told the Irish Times that if a united Ireland came about as a result of a border poll he would accept the democratic result and was not “going to go to war over it”.

‘However, Mr Gibson said that he was not worried about the prospect of a united Ireland anytime soon and that attempts to link it to Brexit were part of “project fear”.

‘Mr Gibson said that he is “proud to be from Northern Ireland”, but that he felt he had an “all-Ireland dimension” as his father and grandfather were born in Co Donegal.

He praised Taoiseach Leo Varadkar for a visit to the Orange Order headquarters in Belfast last year, saying it was “pivotal in changing and improving relationships”.
