A Habbakuk-type Oracle – Neil Mackereth

Further to the previous posted yesterday on two prophecies that were published Friday and Saturday, Neil Mackereth was urged to email but apologised for doing so on a Saturday; “However, I have noted of late that the speed of events is such that delay is not appropriate!”  I’m copying his message as received from Neil (he doesn’t usually use bold typeface):


A week ago, in a time of meditation, the Lord spoke to me:

Consider the expression: “Hope springs eternal” and read it as: “Hope spring’s eternal” – in the sense that “hope” is expectation (as in “our hope is in Jesus” i.e. Faith). Have faith that what will happen this Spring will have eternal significance.

On pondering this I was led to Habakkuk and saw certain similarities with our present situation:

How long, O Lord, will the outrageous, demonic and exceedingly unwholesome agendas of the wicked succeed and prosper?

 “Look at the Nations and watch – and be utterly amazed”

All the negotiations of men are being overtaken by the onslaught of Covid-19. Just as Habakkuk watched for the Babylonian invasion of Israel, so we are to watch the advancing Covid-19, and seek to understand the spiritual significance of this assault on an ill-prepared (unrighteous) world.

This virus scoffs at men whose strength and pride is in their wealth, intellect or fame; ignores frontiers, fortifications and weapons of war, and laughs at our unwillingness to cry out to the Lord.

“If My people who are called by My Name …. “ (2 Chronicles 7:14)

During the week I felt called to:

Meditate on the horrendous, unspeakable and utterly unjust treatment of My Son, that led to His crucifixion and death. Then remember that His barbaric mistreatment was an absolutely necessary forerunner to His resurrection and your salvation. So, too, are the troubles now coming on the earth an absolutely necessary forerunner to the return of Jesus and the fulfillment of My plan for the redemption of the world.

Something utterly amazing is going to happen this Spring.

  2. Hi Richard,

    I read Naill Ferguson’s latest political blog yesterday and he is adding theological references as well.

    “The world has all four of the horsemen of the apocalypse these days: pestilence, war, famine and death. There is, of course, the pestilence now known as Covid-19”

    “But the gods have a cruel sense of humour. Even as we were becoming obsessed by the dangers of carbon dioxide emissions and rising global temperatures in the decades ahead, they sent a virus almost perfectly designed to throw us into confusion right now, at this moment.”
