Interesting contrast re. Black History Month (USA)

Opening today’s DT my attention got immediately drawn to Nicholas Kamm’s fine photo and its juxta-positioning against headline on yesterday’s men. It reminds me of the time Reuters cut the video feed as presidential candidate Trump received a standing ovation at a black church and praise from an Afro-American bishop in Detroit (details herein with video link).

Caption: ‘African-American religious and political leaders lay their hands on Donald Trump as they pray for him at a White House reception to mark Black History month. The US president vowed to deliver ‘abundant’ equal opportunities for all.’

PS. To clarify in view of Facebook remark, in over 12 years monitoring the incumbent POTUS and working of their administration and policies, the above contrast is notable reading.

 

‘Pride’ closes UK cities to the Gospel; hence ‘plague’ cancels all events?

“Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”

Fridays start our long weekend but I’m interrupting the break to post today’s (28th Feb) headline news in the light of the word received by Leisa Ebere yesterday, and amending the title of a blog scheduled for posting tomorrow.  This afternoon’s news reports “When asked how close the UK was to cancelling big events due to the the virus, Health Minister Jo Churchill said. “We are taking the advice of the Chief Medical Officer and assessing the situation on a day-by-day basis. Any decision to cancel events or mass gatherings have to be assessed at the time, based on clinical guidance and based on risk.” [UPDATE 12 Mar: World Health Organization in Europe declares global pandemic, at phase 6 level.]

The scheduled item and its original title reads: Continue reading

Leisa Ebere: global preparation-time

Again we consider the imminent manifestation of the harvest of the wheat and tares, with its direct relevance to my calling to write on End-times (as herein), as well as our taking a Stand upon the Rock of Christ emerging in Britain (2004 open vision).  Revival? Not yet!

As for all prophetical postings, this is to be weighed with the Lord and against His Word.

Leisa’s email arrived soon after booting up my pc today, and wherein she writes:  ‘Early this morning, the Lord gave me clarification in regards to the international issues that are presently challenging the Earth, and I wanted to share His Words with you and the readers:

THE GLOBAL PREPARATION-TIME PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 27/02/20

“Pride goes before destruction,” says the Lord, “and I am allowing a scattering of seeds of disease and calamity to come upon the proud and the haughty, across the nations of the earth who torment and scoff at the innocent and those that call upon My Name. For my Sovereign Hand shall bring protection to My Faithful Ones, and shall block the actions of the evil one as I sweep many of this wicked generation away in this next season. For the 2020’s shall not be a global outpouring of My Spirit, as many suppose, but rather a clearing out of evil and a making room for the positioning of My Remnant, with lightening bursts of My Spirit reflecting My Power released to those who want to serve me with their whole hearts. I am sifting the wheat from the chaff,” says the Lord, “and it is time to stand up and be counted in these last days, and become ready for the harvest. I have released angels with mighty sickles and they are digging deep into the Earth. For the time of preparation is at hand,” says The Lord of Hosts. “Heed My Voice!”

Blessings, Leisa Ebere

Through the looking glass: hidden prophecy and the Sign of Jonah — Real Christianity

It is especially encouraging that my writing has inspired one of my American friends, RJ Dawson, to republish his article on the historic mistakes of some Twentieth Century US eschatologists (or ‘escapologists’ – my term for Rapture-ites). RJ comments as follows upon my post of the PM’s speech reflecting Veronika West’s vision of Britain and I’d encourage you to take time to read his original item too and discussion therein:

“Thanks Richard. I’ve been catching up on your site and reading several of your latest posts. I read the full versions of your two posts on the State of the Prophetic. You have gathered quite an extensive collection and it is impressive. I continued through the previous articles. I had read the post about Veronika’s vision earlier in the day along with the comments and thought it was most interesting. It led me to a post I wrote two years ago (1/29/18) which you commented upon and reblogged on your site. It is entitled THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: HIDDEN PROPHECY AND THE SIGN OF JONAH. It is interesting as well that you made mention of prophetic happenings of the last two years.

“I decided to post my article again. Rather than reblog it, I wrote a new one page introduction containing a link to the article at bottom and just now posted it.

“I think you and your readers may like to read this post again in light of current events and compare notes over the subsequent happenings since that time. We live in a new era on so many fronts. I have been blessed to see many astounding spiritual events in my time after joining up with the Lord in 1976. It often takes a long range perspective to properly parse out and analyze spiritual history in order to gain a correct perspective, along with massive amounts of research on many subjects. It is in part why the Lord requires elders.

“Incidentally, to go along with your extensive research, I have recently been reading once again about the latter day Holy Spirit outpouring in America which began in Topeka, Kansas in 1901, moved through Houston, Texas, and then broke forth in Los Angeles in the world-changing Asuza Street Revival which began in 1906 and continued for about three years.

“I’m including the link to my article here for your perusal. Thank you, Richard. Blessings to you, and keep up the great work.”

Dear Readers: Due to several cataclysmic events of “Biblical Proportions” taking place throughout the world at present, and the UK’s recent Brexit from the EU, many Christians are of a mind that we are in the last of the “last days.” The evidence is unconvincing, however, and by itself is nothing more than an […]

Prophecy Update 2.4: UK prepared to ditch talks with EU

Last October Veronika West expressed caution on not only the news about a deal PM Boris Johnson may accept with the EU, but also on details of a dream she’d had about the nature of any deal. This made her ask on 17th October, Does PM  Boris Johnson have a Brexit deal?

BREAKING NEWS; BORIS JOHNSON HAS A DEAL???!!!!….

LET US CONTINUE TO WATCH AND PRAY.

‘In light of this Breaking News headline that PM JOHNSON has struck a deal with the EU I felt led to share a strange dream I shared with some powerful prophets / intercessors in the month of September where I saw in this dream a DEAL BEING SIGNED, BUT IT DID NOT HOLD….IT DID NOT HOLD.

‘A STRANGE DREAM; Posted on 17 September; The Spirit said, “THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN BY THE HAND OF MAN WILL NOT STAND, IT WILL NOT STAND!!….BUT THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN BY THE HAND OF GOD WILL STAND, WILL STAND!! …AND WILL NOT FAIL..!”

‘EAGLES…A DREAM TO SERIOUSLY AND PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER, TO BE CLEAR, I WAS NOT SHOWN IN THE DREAM THAT THIS IS ‘DEFINITELY’ CONCERNING A DEAL WITH REGARDS TO BREXIT, BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT IT MAY WELL BE MAKING REFERENCE TO IT; “THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN BY THE HAND OF MAN WILL NOT STAND, IT WILL NOT STAND!!….BUT THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN BY THE HAND OF GOD WILL STAND, WILL STAND!!…AND WILL NOT FAIL..!”

God is testing our power source: Obedience — Wanda Alger

Once again we have words of wisdom from Wanda and which ‘coincided’ with retaining  the opening scripture to my Fulfilled Prophecies catalogue. (Appearing in full from the page’s inception I’d decided to truncate it down to first verse only but yesterday morning obeyed the Spirit’s direction to retain it >> later that day I received an email from such a ‘false tree’ of prophecy!)

Next, after re-blogging the previous post relating to censoring Franklin Graham a reader queried my use of a certain word. I replied that my focus is to try meeting Jesus’ triple insistence in John 14 of obedience as a demonstration of loving Him (vv 15, 21, 23). Next, is to avoid judging my brethren. SO carefully consider Wanda’s teaching and example below:

We underestimate the POWER in OBEDIENCE. For those of us who champion the tangible presence of God and spending time in the quiet place, it’s easy to assume that this is our only source of spiritual power. Though it is true that spending time with the Lord is foundational to our faith and nurturing our…

In my humble opinion this by David Robertson is essential reading for ALL who claim to follow Jesus Christ, and especially for church leaders… 

This months EN article…. 1 Chronicles 12:32 is a fascinating verse. It speaks of ‘men who understood the times and knew what to do’. In an age of confusion it’s clearly something that we need today.

Veronika West: 2 prophecies today for the UK – the restoration of the broken

UK: THE RESTORATION OF THE BROKEN IN A RIVER OF GOLD

A powerful dream for the United Kingdom!

“The clay, the gold and the precious living stones shall come together and shall become a vessel of honour upon The Altar and a carrier of the New Wine among the nations, for a great outpouring has begun!”

In the dream I saw a large clay pot that was completely broken and shattered.

I could see even the smallest particles of the clay (the dust of the clay) and as I looked at the shattered clay pot in the dream, my heart began to cry out at the complete brokenness that was before me.

It was as if I was looking at the valley of dry bones… and in the dream, The Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying, “What do you see?, to which I replied, “I see a shattered clay pot.”

The Spirit replied, “Can this broken and shattered clay pot become useful again?  Can this broken and shattered clay pot be restored and reformed?”

To which I replied, “Only you know.”

The Spirit of Revelation spoke again saying, “Look and look again.”

And as I heard those Words, my eyes were drawn again to the broken pieces of the clay pot and I saw that each broken piece was a region and a territory of the nation.

Suddenly, it was as if a map of the United Kingdom came up before me in the dream, where I saw the 4 nations of the UK within the broken and shattered pieces.

As I stayed looking and my vision got clearer, and as I seemed to be drawn nearer to the shattered pieces of pottery, I could see cities, towns, villages and even some of the different landmarks of the nation before me.

Then, even the very small particles of dust came up before me again and I saw that the dust — was people!  Thousands upon thousands upon ten of thousands of people!

Again the Spirit said,“Can this broken and shattered clay pot become useful again?  Can this broken and shattered clay pot be restored and reformed?”

Then suddenly the dream shifted and I heard what sounded like the rumbling and rushing of many waters.

Suddenly I felt The Fear of The LORD come upon me, and in my heart I feared that the mighty waters of the river would wash away the pot and all of the broken and shattered pieces, and that the dust of the clay pot would be carried away and destroyed.

But The Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying, “Fear not!  Watch!”

As I kept watching I saw what looked like a mighty GOLD RIVER rushing towards me.  I watched as the mighty river of gold began to flow between the broken and shattered pieces of the clay pot and every speck of dust from the clay pot was caught up in the river of gold.

I watched as the broken and shattered pieces of the clay pot began to come together and I watched as each broken region, territory, city, town, and village…. and every person made of the very dust of the pot, was being brought together.

I stayed watching intently as the broken and shattered clay pot was being completely restored and reformed.  Not one piece of the pot, nor one speck of dust was left untouched by the river of gold!

Then suddenly the dream shifted again and I saw the once broken and shattered clay pot that had looked beyond repair, was now standing tall, fully restored and completely reformed.

Every precious piece of a nation that was broken, shattered and looked beyond repair, was now sealed with the gold of His Glory and encrusted with precious and living stones.

Now as I looked again at the clay pot in the dream I heard these Words,

“The clay, the gold and the precious living stones shall come together and shall become a vessel of honour upon The Altar and a carrier of the New Wine among the nations for a great outpouring has begun.”

As I heard those Words, I saw the clay pot which was in-laid with gold and encrusted with precious stones being put upon an Altar and wine was poured into the precious clay pot.

Then I saw many nations of the earth coming and kneeling down before the Altar and the fires of His Glory were burning and many began to drink of the New Wine that had been poured into the clay pots that surrounded the Altar.

Dream ended.

Veronika West: 2 prophecies today for the UK – Rivers of Glory, Wells of Revival and New Altars

Ever since hearing the word Veronika brought at One Voice Prophetic Conference two weeks ago (see section 8 here) I’ve been eagerly awaiting a fuller published full version. So I’m pleased to get her news of its appearing on her Facebook, as well as this version at His Kingdom Prophecy, especially as it may relate to several dreams of living waters of mine over the recent years:

UK: EXPECT NEW ALTARS OF AWAKENING & WELLS OF REVIVAL

A ‘now’ Word for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

“It’s time! For the rivers of My Glory will flow forth upon this land and the trenches of warfare will become trenches of transformation and triumph!”

I heard The Spirit say to me in an intercessors prayer meeting on Monday morning,

“It’s time! For the rivers of My Glory will flow forth upon this land and the trenches of warfare will become trenches of transformation and triumph!”

And as I heard Father say those Words, I saw deep trenches, even some ancient trenches that seemed to stretch far and wide across the spiritual landscape of the nation, and I heard the Words, “Denominational Strongholds!”

Then I saw what looked like demonic strongmen who guarded over these high-places. But then I heard the sound of THUNDER come out of the heavens as I heard The Spirit say,

“The thunderings of My Seven Spirits shall bring forth seven-fold restoration and reformation in this land.

“The strongholds of religion shall be demolished and The Altars of Awakening shall be built, and The Wells of Revival shall flow forth upon this land which has been divided.

“And that which caused a rift shall now begin to shift, and the land shall be restored, and the people shall be revived, and the five shall become the stones that go forth in Unity and Power to bring down the giants that have occupied this land!”

Blessings to you all.

RB’s Note: ‘the five shall become’ – is this nations of England, Scotland, Wales, Ulster and Eire??

Fulfilled Prophecies catalogue now rebuilt

Introducing the paper on The State of The Prophetic in the UK – 2nd edition I asked my readers a couple of questions:

  1. Do you know that news media headlines and cartoons have mirrored two dozen prophecies by unwittingly quoting their text or imagery…?
  2. Do you know how presidents Trump and Obama unknowingly participated in fulfilling British prophecies?

Then in the next brief blog I claimed to know “150 examples of non-personal prophetic words and visions coming to pass in recent years”.

All this made me mull over the impact of those statements, which is immense because it attests to the frequency, power and validity of accepted prophetic utterances in Britain!!

Therefore, I’ve spent a few days restructuring this site’s catalogue of fulfilled prophecies – which includes updates on developments in those that are moving toward fulfillment. This catalogue has been compiled over several years but was in need of re-organising.

It was an intricate task because half the collection was numbered and linked in order of publication as specific prophecies came to pass. The remainder, being updates or news on progress, had no numbering – and those relating to the EU Referendum result are located elsewhere.

Now, all items are numbered using two different notations yet remaining in consecutive order. The originals retain their ‘#’ prefix in bold font, and newly numbered items show their number in ordinary font without a prefix. (This is explained in the catalogue.)

Also, for ease-of-reference the listing is re-organised with prophecies that have been echoed or mirrored in the media at the beginning. The catalogue closes with a linked listing to all updates relating to the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Therefore, you are most welcome to peruse this site’s Prophecies – Fulfilled page.

NB >> ANSWER to question 2 is found at numbers 106 and #16, which are dated January 2017 and adjacent to one another in the ‘Chronological Validations’ listing.

Leisa Ebere: the rushing tide of the Holy Spirit

On Saturday Leisa emails, “I received a very encouraging Word from the Lord today about the ‘Rushing Tide of God’s Spirit,’ and Praise Him, He is on the Move!  Here it is:

THE RUSHING TIDE OF GOD’S SPIRIT PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 22/02/20

“Wait for Me,” declares the Lord, “and I shall recover the plunder that the enemy has stolen and kept hidden for so long.  For a gathering of the nations and an assembling of kingdoms is at hand, as I form and shape battalions of mighty men and women for My Glory. And surely I will not be mocked, as My Indignation is poured out upon those that oppose Me and My Plans.  And My Prophets shall have pure speech, as they declare My plans and strategies with pure motives. 

“Yes,” says the Lord, “a humble people submitted to My Purposes, not their own, shall be the only ones moving in deep revelation and My mighty glorious power.  Others will be counterfeits and only shadows of what their destinies were meant to be,” says the Lord. “I Am, even now, raising up those profiled and prepared by My Spirit. Be not afraid, People of God, for neither cultures, nor kingdoms, nor fame nor fortunes, will change the rushing tide of My Spirit.  For the harvest is coming and My Sons and Daughters shall be victorious!”

Blessings, Leisa Ebere

Status of prophecy in Britain in one sentence

“I’m aware of 150 examples of non-personal prophetic words and visions coming to pass in recent years, two dozen of which their text or images have been unwittingly repeated in the news media.” (Richard Barker)

And that’s only those known to me personally, as reported on this blog. So there must be many more out there of which I’m unaware. That number also includes over two dozen accurate prophecies on the outcome of the 2016 EU Referendum.

For details see Prophecies – Fulfilled, as well as overview in The State of the Prophetic in the UK.

[Originally published with The State of the Prophetic in the UK – 2nd edition but now posted as a separate preface on the document’s genesis and author’s connection.]

Do you know that news headlines and cartoons have mirrored two dozen prophecies by unwittingly quoting their text or image, even in a Prime Ministerial speech? Also, that their incidence has increased rapidly in the last two years?

Thus, not only actual events but also the way they’ve been reported has validated many modern prophecies, thereby giving prophets credibility. For example, presidents Trump and Obama unknowingly participated in fulfilling British prophecies! (See Appendix C.)

I was honoured to be tasked by Revd Yinka Oyekan of The Gate in Tilehurst, Reading, with writing a briefing paper for guests unfamiliar with prophecy attending the One Voice Prophetic Conference in Reading, on 8th February. The paper gives them an overview of the prophetic in Britain, together with some examples of fulfilled prophecies.

If you were a delegate there you may have seen it as one of two papers in their email’s Dropbox links, and which was done in collaboration with Geoffrey Pick of Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival, and with input from Neil Townsend of Salt and Light, and David Stark of Glasgow Prophetic Centre.

That paper is now published as a second edition augmented with a two-years old prophecy of the conference, a brief summary plus extra material replete with links.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Through a ‘coincidence’ in mid-1980s, as an unbeliever I learned that Bible prophecy connects into modern events. Whilst flipping through a book on geo-politics quoting ancient Hebrew seers as a documentary on Iran-Iraq war was showing on TV, I saw their elite troops rehearsing an attack upon Jerusalem!  1989: a life-saving Visitation from Jesus Christ led to attending Tilehurst Free Church (Baptist), Reading. 2008-9: upon opening my Bible I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”, thus started writing on signs of Jesus’ return. 2011: a dream on the Kingdom being set-up in UK prompted the launch of this blog for posting news on Biblically-relevant events plus contemporary prophecy and church. (Read full testimony at I’m Free!)

Formerly Reading Community Church, The Gate was formed in July 2005 when TFC and Groveland’s Christian Fellowship, joined together under Yinka’s leadership. Three years earlier, however, my attendance closed because I married Nina and moved.

Therefore, 17 years later I was totally surprised to be invited out-of-the-blue to join a working group to prepare for a conference Yinka was convening for the purpose of enhancing the standing of the prophetic across as many denominations as possible

Whilst discussing the plans in our first video conference a memory of an interior vision suddenly ‘flashed’ –the operative word! – into mind. So I dug into my files and to find the details, which I shared when first announcing the One Voice Prophetic.

1. SUMMARY

This paper provides an overview of the history and development of prophecy within the UK. By nature, it cannot be encyclopaedic and is presented from a personal, thirty-year perspective.

Prophecy can be brought from the holy, spiritual realm into that of factual daily life, thereby confirming a prophecy’s validity. This data demonstrates that not only are Bible prophecies coming to pass in our day, but so too are modern prophecies!

That is, today’s prophets have an established track record additional to that for personal prophecies. It is incumbent, therefore, upon leaders to know what the Lord is saying to, and expects from, churches, nations and individuals, as brought through duly weighed and tested prophecy.

In the 20th Century, prophecy was spasmodic but became more noticed and accepted with the expansion of the charismatic movement and wider outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Since the millennium, prophetic words to the nation began to come more often. Then during its second decade, the quantity and sharing of prophetic visions and words accelerated rapidly – and the timescales of their fulfillment got radically shortened.

Moreover, prophets’ predictions about two nationally historic events were diametrically opposite to ‘expert’ opinion, yet proved 100% correct. Moreover, we’ve witnessed a rapid increase in news media-mirroring of prophetical terms and images as prophecies are fulfilled. AND the present and previous US presidents’ have unwittingly participated in British prophecies coming to pass!

By 2020 many prophecies on what the Lord is doing in Britain have come to pass – 150 examples since 2011 – and thus validated by the news media! So we give Him all the glory for this and the way He’s working through this conference.

As indicated in the final sections, ministries and churches in many towns and cities across Britain are now open to prophecy.

Therefore, prophecy is demonstrably relevant to our national life and should be taken seriously by those inside and outside Church.

2. WHAT IS PROPHECY?

Prophecy (Greek prophetiea) is the ‘speaking forth the mind and counsel of the Lord God’ and thus a declaration that cannot be known by natural means – ie. a direct revelation from God. It is one of the Holy Spirit’s gifts to Jesus’ disciples

Although prophecy is ‘telling forth’ what the Lord is saying rather than ‘foretelling’ the future, that latter aspect is not excluded. So primarily, prophecies shape our hearts and understanding in order to sharpen or challenge the way we think, act and pray.

Apostle Paul referred to apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers as ministers appointed for equipping and edifying the body of Christ (Eph 4:7-16). Prophecies through such recognised ministry carry more authority than those from disciples moving in Holy Spirit’s gifting

When received in gatherings of believers it is a protocol of accountability to submit prophecy to someone in authority for weighing and checking that it aligns with scripture and reflects God’s character and purposes. Another person may be aware of something similar from the Lord and confirms what is brought. Thus, by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established’ (Deut 19:15; reiterated by Paul on authority at 2 Cor 13:1, ‘By the word of two or three witnesses every word shall be established’).

So a word spoken as coming from the Lord finds witness within the hearer’s spirit; eg. In Acts 15:28 “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us…” for making decisions at the first Church council.

NKJV Amos 3: Authority of the Prophet’s Message, vv 7-8: ‘Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy?’

As with OT prophets, words brought as from the Lord are uplifting, encouraging insights bringing hope. Yet as ‘covenantal watchmen’, today’s prophets may speak into the state of a nation challenging personal and political preferences and activities, as in the current state of widespread personal and national ungodliness.

A couple of observations:

  • “The Word of the Lord, or prophecy, is not solely prediction-based, it is to give the Church God’s narrative on nations on three levels: insight – oversight – foresight.” (Tomi Arayomi)
  • “When God is using prophets… they repetitively are tasked to tell nations where the nation may not be in covenant with another nation – it is a key function of prophets in Scripture. Prophets need to know which nation aligns with which nation. It’s part of our job description!” (Emma Stark)
Related Scriptures:

Matt 7:15-20 – Jesus’ instruction to be aware of and to test false prophecies
1Cor 14:1 – eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy
1Cor 14:29 – two or three prophets should speak and others weigh carefully
1Cor 14:31 – all can prophesy in turn, so all can be instructed and encouraged.

3. THE BIBLE PROPHESIES MODERN EVENTS

End-times are here, as foretold – even defined? – by Jesus: “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all peoples, and then the end will come!” (Matthew 24:14). According to Barnabus Aid magazine: ‘by 2,000 there were indigenous Christians in every country of the world’ (A History of Christian Persecution, Pt 12 – October 2019).

Other examples of End-times prophecy coming to pass in our day: Jewish people return en-mass to their homeland (Zeph 3:19-20, Jer 23:3-8) – increasing apostasy in church teachings (2 Thess2:3) – the return of ‘the days of Noah/Lot,’ as evident in gay-pride parades! (Luke 17:26-29) – waving a hand to buy goods without cash (Rev 13:17) as in today’s cashless society!!

4. HISTORICAL SUMMARY OF MODERN PROPHECY

It is important to acknowledge that fresh seed of the Kingdom was planted in Holy Spirit Revivals in Wales (1904-5) and the Hebrides (1949-52).

Appendices to this paper are linked to the author’s compilation of prophecies delivered over the period 1909-2017, as published in this site’s extensive Prophecy Library, and demonstrate the growth of modern prophecy. The rapidly increasing volume of material necessitated its discontinuance but subsequent prophecies can be found in this site’s monthly archives. All items are to be weighed with the Lord.

  • Appendix A: 20th Century – overview of Holy Spirit moves and major prophets
  • Appendix B: 21st Century – notes on significant prophecies and developments

Appx A’s most well-known prophecies are Smith-Wiggleworth’s 1947 vision of future revivals and Jean Darnall’s 1967 vision of many local fires and lightning strikes. Many of their forecasts have come to pass, as examined in Geoffrey Pick’s Revival Prophecies – Where Are We Now? [The conference’s second paper.]

In the 1990s, his church elders advised the author that prophecies are normally put in a pending tray because they take many years, even decades, to come to pass. Thus, no-one really knew at the time of receipt if they’re accurate and reliable. However, by 2020 that situation no longer pertains because an increasing number have been fulfilled within months – even days!

The overflow of 1990s Holy Spirit outpouring within Britain made prophetic ministry available. Eg, teams visited Thames valley in 1996; author’s vision of spiritual ‘atomic’ bomb’s fireball rolling along the Thames to London gateway towns, confirms assistant pastor’s vision of 10 years earlier.

Geoffrey Pick writes on the situation after the millenium, “Prophecies were rarely shared outside local church meetings in the UK prior to the rise of social media. Even words that were significant remained within a local church or home-group. Individuals seeking to find out what the Holy Spirit was speaking could not easily find more than a few prophetic words for the nation. Many who received such words for the nation, as I did in October 2000, could not find a platform to share with others. It took 3 years before I found a place to share and that was an International prophecy website. In 2004, encouraged by others, I launched a webpage to bring together UK national prophecy, followed by UK Prophetic Words.

In 2001, commissioned by ‘father of prophets’ Dr Bill Hamon, Revd Dr Sharon Stone and husband Greg Black moved to England and started Christian International Europe (CIE). Their teaching and minisitry encouraged the growth of prophecy in British and European churches. Also, by 2005 New Frontiers church movement was operating with a few recognised prophets.

Personal Perspectives:

A startling open vision in 2004 left the author needing advice. Its content was confirmed the next year by Dr Stone at a conference in Bath, one of a small number of places where local prophetic ministry was already established.

July 2005’s terrorist attack upon London was quickly followed by a profound prophetic vision and message on Britain’s End-time destiny brought by Wendy Alec. Having retired early from an EU governmental agency, this author noted her reference to Britain being entangled by the EU and God’s desire for separation. Hence, he began noticing prophecies on this topic over subsequent years. In addition, Geoffrey Pick published a collection of such prophecies on Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival.

In September 2011, Revd Bill Johnson of Redding, California, confirmed this author’s ‘God-incidental’ dream by referring to that date’s possibility as a turning point in the history of the Kingdom in Britain. Subsequently, there’s been a noticeable, increasing acceleration in the prophetic.

Three years later came a clear vision of an enormous bulldozer demolishing ungodly structures, which eventually began to come to pass after another five years.

5. PROPHECY AS JIGSAW PIECES & GPS

‘…on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.’ (Deut 19:15)

Bringing prophetic ‘jigsaw pieces’ together

Being active in the prophetic opens one up to Godly coincidences or ‘God-incidents’. The author began noticing an increasing number of prophecies brought by various brethren within days of one another. It can be likened to pieces of an invisible jigsaw falling into place to present a larger prophetical picture – like a team of separated prophets bringing words and visions that fit together to give a bigger picture. [For about 70 examples see ‘Jigsaw’ tag.]

Also, like an aircraft controller at an airport, the author noted over 40 similar prophecies given in various places globally, as though heavenly Father’s got his own GPS system, ie. ‘Global Prophecy Signals’. [For examples visit ‘Gods_GPS’ tag]

One good example, published only days before the conference, tells of two ‘pieces’ that had appeared much earlier than others arriving together via ‘GPS’ – as herein.

Dr Stone describes such serendipity as a Biblical ‘law’ for advancing the Kingdom: “Amazing, accidental discovery! Wow! No matter what we do and what God does, He surprises us with lots moreeg. Pentecost” (see Ephesians 3:14-21).

6. PROPHECIES COME TO PASS

Monitoring the possibility of Wendy Alec’s 2005 Vision for Great Britain coming to pass and learning later of prophetic insights on the outcome of the 2016 EU Referendum, the author collected that data and discovered their accurate predictions confounded those of all ‘expert’ political pundits and pollsters – and likewise for 2019’s general election!

This led to the logical question: how many other prophecies are coming to pass?

So maybe another set of fulfilled prophecies could be gleaned from this site’s cyber-library, the listed content of which is available via Appendix G?

In view of the size of the undertaking, the author looked at prophecies in the preceding 10 years but time constraints prevented in-depth analysis. A list of fulfilled prophecies was compiled over subsequent years.

Appendix C provides links to 150 instances of prophecies since 2001 that have been, or are in the process of becoming, fulfilled. A noticeable trend relates to the Hebrews 12 shaking/exposure of the ungodly, including many examples on the EU, and increasingly includes national media headlines using terms (‘fox’, ‘lion’, ‘bulldozer’) that had already been given in prophecies!!.

Appendices D, E and F are documented prophecies on the 2008 Economic Crash (with copy news), on ‘Exposure with Big Shake-up’ in 2019 and on the General Election.

7. THE PRESENT & FUTURE OF PROPHECY

“For the first time in history Europe’s prophets have come out of their caves” – Revd Dr Sharon Stone (1.2.2020).

The 1980s saw a major restoration of the prophetic movement, and 15-20 years ago teaching and ministry was focused upon the prophetic gifting and not upon training anointed prophets.

Compared with 30 years ago, there’s now a wider appreciation of the gift of prophecy and office of prophet across churches, and many more local ministries across Britain (see Directory). Moreover, the prophetic anointing in Britain may possibly overtake that of America.

In 2020, “We’re standing in the greatest prophetic move in history…God is building His church on the foundation of apostles and prophets.” Dr Stone reckons a reformation in training prophets is now necessary in order to bring breakthrough and shifts in all areas within churches and the nations. Therefore, Christian International Europe in Windsor and Glasgow Prophetic Centre have started new training courses on equipping the prophets.

For some years the UK Council of Prophetic Elders met under Dr Stone’s leading. This has now been succeeded by the British Isles’ Council of Prophets, with Dr Stone and senior prophets and apostles on its Advisory Council. It forms a network of prophetic voices in Scotland, Wales, England, Northern Ireland, Eire and the Channel Isles.

The vision, aims and core values of the British Isles’ Council of Prophets can be read via the preceding link, where its latest prophecies and membership may also be found.

Suggested Goals:

The following goals for prophetic ministry continue to be of importance:

    • Greater focus upon the spiritual state of the nation
    • Linking up of specific scriptures with prophecies
    • Increasing call for accuracy, especially on timing
    • Improved joining of prophecy with intercession
    • Greater influence across all churches and in society.

8. ONE VOICE PROPHETIC CONFERENCE

Geoffrey Pick advises that a prophecy about such a gathering was brought two years ago to the week by Jeroma Davis (13 Feb 2018):

“Thank You Holy Spirit…I am Seeing in the Spirit ….. A Round Table.. A Circle of Seers/Prophets/Deliverance voices/Pastors/Apostles/Prayer Intercessors and Leaders in Ministry forming a Spiritual Bond/Chain Link Globally that will stand the test of time! The enemy is losing ground as The Body of Christ is emerging with a Holy Fire that will never be extinguished. The Call onto Holy Ground will be deeply rooted from Radical Lovers of Jesus Christ as the Holy Fire burns deeply within their hearts! I see flames of the All-Consuming Fire going up into the high heavens as the Bride returns to Purity/Holiness in God our King.”

The stated purpose of One Voice Prophetic Conference 2020 reads:

‘We believe that God is still speaking into the Nation and the Church is responsible for bringing that prophetic word to the attention of leaders, people in power and those who carry responsibility for the care of the Nation. It is important that the word of the Lord comes out of a united ekklesia and we come together from our different streams to speak as One Voice. This is a space for influential voices from the church, business, education and other spheres of influence.’

Pastor Oyekan invited leaders of the Assemblies of God and, as President-elect 2020 of the Baptist Union, especially encourages Baptist churches to take prophecy seriously.

The conference morning began with extended period of worship for intimacy with the Lord and then groups gathered to wait upon Him for words about specific areas and for a few certain individuals, viz:

  • government
  • business & finance
  • international relations
  • emergency services
  • health & social care
  • church denominations
  • justice system
  • the royal family
  • arts & culture
  • education
  • media

Guest speaker Dr Mark Birch-Machin of Speakers of Life outlined a national prophetic strategy based upon the neurological communication principles of the human body.

Revd Betty King, Emma Stark and Veronika West brought teaching and prophecies. Of these, I particularly noted Betty spoke on the vital importance of dealing with buried personal issues that affect our serving the Lord (my wife had received a very effective personal word upon that in the previous week). Emma stressed we’re not to look for a repeat of the Toronto-style Revival because the Lord is already bringing this in a very different format.

In an unscheduled message Veronika revealed what the Lord told her during the night when He alerted her that we need to:

“Get ready, get ready for the stage is set for a spiritual showdown!”

After explaining, she said He will demolish false altars and build new ones throughout Britain where evangelists will emphasise altar-calls once again. Also, an unusual picture of a horse and ox yoked together shows that apostles and prophets will begin working together as teams for the Kingdom.

Drawing to a close, Veronika also prophesied about Reading being on a spiritual hill and of the Lord’s fire coming down. (Confirms impression I’d brought at the working group’s planning meeting in November and previous visions of decades ago, one of which I’d ‘seen’ like an exploding ‘atomic bomb’ with fireball rolling down Tilehurst hill and along the Thames Valley towards the capital, as told in June’s 2nd of four jigsaw pieces!)

PM’s speech validates Veronika’s vision of the UK’s New Day (FP #63)

Democracy’s Resurgence & Restoration of Sovereignty 23 June 2016 (credit+link to Archbishop Cranmer)

Guess it’s been a long month with my referring only now to the celebration of Britain’s Independence Day of leaving the European Union on 31st January 2020. However, and absolutely without any engineering on my part! – today’s date neatly fits this post into the earlier Yet again ’22’ pops up and Veronika West brings an insight on 02.02.2020!

LOL! Upon searching for that blog in my archive I see the number posted so far this month…22!

It’s been busy time on top of all those blogs. So my only action in regard to our leaving the EU was to re-publish Veronika’s vision of two days earlier of her being on-board a ship turning and heading into a New Day and New Dawn, as told below. I’m re-publishing with my added emphases to draw attention to the details and the way the vision was mirrored five days later by the Prime Minister in his speech on 3rd February – in a location deeply redolent with British naval history; the Royal Naval College in Greenwich!

For about a week now I have been hearing in the spirit a DEEP, DEEP sound of WOOD, LIKE WET WOOD that you would hear on the DECKS OF AN OLD SHIP, a deep sound of CREAKING, CRACKING AND MOVING…. it has come to me over and over and over again and every time I heard it I would see so clearly a MASSIVE SHIP MADE OF BEAUTIFUL WOOD, it was OLD AND BATTLE-WORN BUT I COULD FEEL THE GREAT POWER AND STRENGTH THAT LAY DEEP WITHIN ITS FRAME, this ship had seen many things in its time, fought many battles, some defeats but many VICTORIES, I could almost tangibly feel the wind and the moisture in the air and I could almost taste the salt on my lips, but as I stopped to give it my full attention yesterday I said, “Lord what is this?”, and the Spirit said…”THE NATION IS NOW TURNING TO FACE A NEW DAY AND A NEW DAWN”

….those words hit me hard and I felt such a rise within me and I could then tangibly feel the MOVEMENT AND ACCELERATION THAT WAS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE, but as the old ship was TURNING IT WAS SLOW AND VERY PRECISE, IT WAS FINDING ITS BEARINGS, FINDING TRUE-NORTH, the MOVEMENT FELT SLOW… BUT IT WAS TURNING!…I COULD FEEL THE GREAT WEIGHT AND POWER OF THIS ANCIENT SHIP AND THE WATERS OF THE SEA WERE CHURNING, WAVES WERE BEATING HARD AGAINST THE SIDES….BUT WE WERE TURNING!..then suddenly the sound of CREAKING AND CRACKING WOOD changed, and I could hear the sound of howling winds and the sound of voices many voices, COMMANDS WERE BEING GIVEN, and then I heard “RAISE THE SAILS, RAISE THE SAILS”, and then I could hear the sound of RIPPING, RINGING AND WHISTLING AND THEN THE SOUND OF A FAINT FLAPPING which quickly turned to the sound of A MIGHTY BLOWING AND I COULD SUDDENLY FEEL AN ACCELERATION AS THE MIGHTY SHIP TURNED AND BEGAN TO MOVE FORWARD…’(continue reading here).

Now, yesterday I received this excited email from Margaret H entitled the Ship Cartoons’ Extra Relevance:

‘Thank you for posting the cartoons and Veronika’s comment…The extra bit which I thought of straight away is the relevance to Boris’s speech in Greenwich on 3.2.20 (so hours after the cartoons and Veronika’s word about seeing the date of 02.02.2020) where he talked with passion about sovereignty, freedom and global free trade in particular.

Right at the end, he had the nation personified as a ship:

“There lies the port; the vessel puffs her sail…the wind sits in the mast. We are embarked now on a great voyage, a project that no one thought in the international community that this country would have the guts to undertake, but if we are brave and if we truly commit to the logic of our mission – open, outward-looking – generous, welcoming, engaged with the world, championing global free trade now when global free trade needs a global champion, I believe we can make a huge success of this venture, for Britain, for our European friends, and for the world.”

‘His reference to ‘there’ follows from what he’d just said about a ‘global perspective’, by which he clearly means something which is the opposite of globalism. It’s part of the taking us back to our ancient ways and true foundations as prophesied universally. He didn’t use those words, but the whole thing is implicit in the setting at Greenwich, looking up at the ceiling, his references to our maritime past, the freedom from tyranny etc. He stage-managed it in true Boris-style. I looked at the transcript of the whole speech on the government website as well as watching it.

‘Veronika saw the ship before Boris described it!

Margaret trusts her contribution “will cause others to rejoice as well”.  The PM began his speech in the famous ‘Painted Hall’ of the Old Royal Naval College (known as ‘Britain’s Sistine chapel’) by directing his audience towards its ceiling (emphases added for ease-of-comparison with Veronika’s vision):

“It is great to welcome everyone here to Greenwich and I invite you first to raise your eyes to the heavens

“The Vatican has Michelangelo. Greenwich has Thornhill who spent 20 years flat on his back on top of the scaffolding, so rigid that his arm became permanently wonky, and he’s left us this gorgeous and slightly bonkers symbolic scene that captures the spirit of the United Kingdom in the early 18th century.

“This painting above you was started in 1707, the very year when the union with Scotland was agreed – and does it not speak of supreme national self-confidence?

“Look at these well-fed nymphs and cupids and what have you. They are not just celebrating the Triumph of Liberty and Peace over Tyranny – the official title of the scene. This is the settlement of a long and divisive political question about who gets to sit on the throne of England.

“And it is visibly resolved as you can see in favour of William and Mary and the result is stability and certainty and optimism and an explosion of global trade propelled by new maritime technology.

“And above and around us you can see the anchors, cables, rudders, sails, oars, ensigns, powder barrels, sextants, the compasses and the grappling irons.

“In fact the only important bit of kit that is missing is Harrison’s sea clock – also exhibited close-by here in Greenwich and also commissioned in the same era, that allowed every ship in the world to determine how far they were from this Meridian.

“So this is it. This is the newly forged United Kingdom on the slipway: this is the moment when it all took off…”  (Read in full here).

Therefore, we thank the Lord that once again a prophecy is validated not only by a news item but also through the location and content of our Prime Minister’s inspired speech. The prophetic vision’s final fulfillment lies in the implementation of the PM’s plans for our United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Leisa Ebere: a vision of dry bones rising

Leisa emails me yesterday, ‘The Lord took me into a powerful vision in the early hours of the morning, which speaks about His discontent with those who are not living in the fullness of His Spirit. His heart’s desire is that we rise up and embrace the Glory, Power and Grace that His Precious Son, Jesus, died for, so that we can live victorious lives. Here it is:

THE RISING OF THE DRY BONES VISION

given to Leisa Ebere on 18th February 2020

‘The Lord took me into a vision, to a very desolate place, and it was extremely quiet there, as if it had been forgotten and forsaken entirely. And then as I looked in the distance I saw the valley of the dry bones, as is spoken of in Ezekiel 37, and I saw that there were snake pits throughout the valley and that certain bones were being blown into the snake pits over and over again. Then I heard the Lord say,

“Those who will not rise when My Prophets extend Words from My Throne Room shall fall into deeper deception. But those who rise and walk towards the Brightness of My Rising shall be connected and empowered for a glorious purpose.”

‘Then I saw an angel fly with what looked like weights and measures and that he had positioned himself on a high hill above the valley, and I saw there was a legion of angels standing with him and some were blowing shofars and others were singing in a mighty assembly on that hill. Then the Lord proclaimed in a loud thunderous voice,

“The gathering of My People shall not be stopped by Unbelief or Deceptions. For the testimony of humanism and traditions of men shall pass away and be labelled as foolishness, as My Sovereign hand moves upon the Nations of the earth. For My Glory shall be released to free the captives and to protect the innocent and My forbearance of this present Age is coming to end,” said the Lord of Hosts.’

Blessings,

Leisa Ebere,

Cartoons mirror prophetic visions on leaving the EU (FP #62)

As a result of Britain leaving the EU on 31st January Veronika West posted a couple of confirmations in national press of prophecies she’d already published on her Facebook:

Readers may recall the vision of the UK breaking away like an iceberg from a glacial ‘bloc’, as told here last June, then ‘confirmed’ in news coinciding with July’s Brexit May-hem, and again in October.

This was followed by:

On 29th January Veronika had posted the following as re-published here on this site:
