Confirmation of what came on Saturday followed the next day after arriving at a church in Haslemere’s evening prayer meeting. Upon his arrival, Peter D straight away came to tell me what had happened to him during the day and I grasped its direct relevance to what I’d learned the previous day, as recounted in the previous posts about the Lord of the breakthrough, His wrath and His action behind the political scenes for achieving His purposes in our nation. Here’s Peter’s account:
‘This morning I didn’t go to morning service as we were going to the evening one. As I was upstairs praying a passage came to my spirit.. where one of the prophets threw gourds into the pot led to them declaring to the man of God… “there is death in the pot”, whereupon Elisha threw flour into the pot and afterwards they ate it. (2 Kings 4 v38-41)

‘For the LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim. He will rise in wrath, as at the Valley of Gibeon, to do his work, his unexpected work, and to perform his task, his unfamiliar task.’ [Christian Standard Bible]
‘I read this out quietly as I walked quietly back to the station and home.
‘I find this verse encouraging. Many times in my life I have had scriptures that, although in their context and time are speaking to another situation, yet have a relevant focus for today.
‘I really believe God gave this verse to me and I pray we will see with the eyes of faith great things, even though the climate of fear and confusion and negatively and division etc etc seek to exhaust us.’
