ACE Insights: Shavuot – Pentecost — Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum

Quote

The renowned Messianic scholar provides solid teaching that’s given me another totally unexpected and delightful double ‘God-incidence’ – First: Dr Arnold’s description of the new ministry of Spirit baptism as being essential to the Church’s existence, confirms my case made during debate this week with an author claiming healing by Holy Spirit’s power is “subjective and thus not exegetical,” despite medical evidence to the contrary! – Second: appreciate the inclusion of parable of wheat and tares as it also relates to the End-times harvest, and my checking of which led to my hearing the Lord’s voice on the fulfillment of scripture, thereby kick-starting my writing on prophecy (see The End-game Is Now In Play).

I pray that you may hear what the Lord is saying through Dr Fruchtenbaum’s post…

By Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum – Shavuot is the fourth holy season on the Jewish calendar. Among the Jewish people, it is also known as the Feast of Weeks. Among most Gentile believers today, the season is known as Pentecost.[1] A. The Biblical Observance Shavuot is a one-day festival. It is unique in that it was […]

Two Pentecosts show how God visits His people

Thank you to Elaine Venning for this paper and I’d add that this year’s Passover was a unique repeat of the first Passover when people were locked away during plague. So too, will this Pentecost be unique because believers have been locked out of churches and thus waiting upon the Lord in their homes and internet meetings, wherein we’ve witnessed the Holy Spirit being repeatedly active – similarly to when Jesus breathed upon His disciples in their locked meetings before Pentecost (John 20:22 – again!)

A TALE OF TWO PENTECOSTS and HOW GOD VISITS HIS PEOPLE

Our feast day of Pentecost falls on 31st May 2020 when we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and so the birth of the Church. Two days before (Friday) is the Jewish feast of the same name. That celebrates the conclusion of the Passover season with recalling the giving of the Ten Commandments and the Torah. The Jews calculate the passing years from this time and for them this is 5780. We do the same, taking our year, now 2020, from the approximate year of Jesus’ birth.

We serve the same God. Both feasts remember how God comes down from heaven to visit His people. He comes as Word and as Spirit. The first time the people of Israel were gathered together on the mountain where they heard a loud trumpet sound and experienced the smoke as of a furnace. The second time, violent wind and tongues of fire descended upon each person present. The parallels are very striking.

Sadly, a little later some of the sons of Israel turned back to idolatry. With the fear of the Lord fresh upon them, the Levites acted to uphold the holiness of God using brute force resulting in the killing of 3,000 Hebrews – see Exodus 32 v 28.  Was it a coincidence when the Spirit filled disciples spilled out onto the streets of Jerusalem 3,000 people were baptised in the Spirit to become believers?

Most of these people had come to Jerusalem for the Torah-appointed feast of Pentecost also known as ‘Shavuot’ or the Feast of Weeks. It is the second of three harvest feasts where the men of Israel were required to come to Jerusalem. That year they and their families came from across the known world – see Acts 2. Many would have been devout pilgrims bent on observing all that God commanded – Deuteronomy 16:16.

A key offering in this Feast is that of two loaves of bread made with finest wheat and leaven given in a wave offering. Scholars say this is an act of remembrance representing the Old Testament Covenant that God established with His peoples  and was made on the two tablets upon which the Ten Commandments were chiselled. It has also been seen as a prophetic fore-telling of the New Testament Covenant as well.

With the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in this the New Covenant God makes, both Jew and Gentile are brought together, as in His mercy the Father fulfils the exchange Jesus purchased for those who accept His blood sacrifice with the taking away of our sins and the giving to us of His own righteousness. Thereby, God allows us to become His own dear children.

In both, God is drawing near to His people Himself and is making us Holy. He has done this by firmly making the Resurrected Jesus to be the cornerstone upon which everything holds together, the one new man, the second Adam – see Ephesians 2.

5780/2020 is double blessing time, the importance of Word and Spirit coming to God’s people. It is when the great harvest of souls can be expected to start with the fresh empowering of God’s people. It is the herald of a new age of wonders and miracles.

Like the Jews at this time we can benefit from reading the book of Ruth with its beautiful story of mercy. The harvest comes in loving kindness, with its tale of surprise acceptance and redemption.

Let us do all that He asks of us. Prepare to be witnesses!

As the Taize chant says, “wait for the Lord, whose day is near. Keep watch, take heart”.

Passion for the Nation: Time to Move Out!

Click/tap image for link to Passion For The Nation and previous declarations

NB: this arrived whilst I was messaging Abel about posting his latest on Battlegrounds, and is published with Suzanne’s kind permission!

A TIME TO MOVE OUT

As we stand on the edge of a new move of God’s Spirit, we declare over this land:

‘when you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God and the priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it, then you will know which way to go.’ Joshua 3: 3

We declare as lockdown eases and transition begins, a spirit of peace (prosperity, safety and well-being) will rest upon the cities, towns and streets of the nation. We speak health instead of sickness, life instead of death, prosperity against all lack in matters concerning finance and the economy, and that in these days of shaking, many will turn to Jesus.

We praise Him for the power of His love, and the power of His grace upon our lives and we choose to worship, to praise and to look upon His Face. We declare the song of the victory of Jesus will rise changing atmospheres and touching lives, that at this crossover moment, the Name of Jesus and the worship of Jesus will overwhelm the power of every other name. We declare as the people of God put their eyes upon Jesus, they will be filled with fresh joy, fresh strength and fresh courage.  (adapted from October 2018)

The Lord is releasing new horizons, new territory and new vision to all those who will hunger and thirst for Him. In the Name of Jesus, we decree and declare in this nation, God’s people will move in accordance with the ‘now’ word of God in their lives, taking hold, crossing over, ready to advance as a new level of sensitivity and obedience to His Spirit comes upon them. We declare His people will grasp the significance of the hour, the power of His love, His gospel, and His purpose within their lives.

Now Lord at this Pentecost weekend, we agree, across this land Your people will be positioned in every way, open and expectant, in heart and in spirit, for what Your Spirit will do and we say, “Lord, Come.”

We continue to declare in this nation: leaders from all political parties, all Government ministers, civil servants, scientists, researchers, economists and all advisors will work as a team with humility and mutual respect and we specifically speak strength to Boris Johnson.

We declare the voice of God’s wisdom will be heard over every other voice concerning all the current decisions, that His strategies and solutions will be recognised and implemented,  rightly dividing between the health and safety of individuals and the economy of the nation.

Word of Discernment: The battleground has shifted – cont’d

Click here to read Parts I and II with brief background to these posts >

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED III: THE ANCIENT BATTLEFIELD OF THE PROMISED LAND

We are the generation that crossed into the promised land; but the wars on the way to the promised land are pale in comparison to what is in the promise. The temptation and battles that cohabiting with demonic ideologies bring leave one in a long-stretch tug-of-war.

The Scriptures shows us how their failure to wipe out demonic structures in the land became their greatest undoing. In a moment in time, a righteous king will emerge and lead unto victories; and they would have rest for a season; and afterwards another king would come who would do injustice and service the perverse altars and they would be besieged in their land for a longer period of time; and this tug of war continued for so long a time, much longer than the sum of times they spent in Egypt and on the way to the promise.

The promised land is an ancient battlefield; it has been the call from the beginning; and is the destination; it is the land destined to rule over other lands, but a greater challenge is being besieged even in the promised land; a place destined to be a place of rest. We are the generation crossing into the ancient battlefield of the promise; the battlefield has shifted. For nations exiting national councils and covenants that have been a strong yoke; the battlefield has shifted; to dwell in safety; we must labor to pull down strongholds that exists in the land; establish the righteous covenant to The LORDSHIP OF JESUS; that we may gain rest and be fed with milk and honey.

THE BATTLEGROUNDS HAVE SHIFTED IV: THE HOMELANDS, THE HIGHWAYS AND THE PALACES

Most times when we consider places of warfare the mind wanders far away; to popular highways in the city, entrance gates of cities; governmental buildings; but very little do people consider the very location of their home as a map in contest !

The LORD through Moses had wrought a great warfare in Egypt; contending at the palace; shaking significant hotspots in the city; but the one that broke many doors at once; was the final plague; and it was the one directed to the first-born, as seen in Exodus 11:1. The most significant part of this was the fact that the first-born served either as priests or heirs to the family priesthood that serviced the family altars that had idols seated in their homes. So it was first a strike against the idols and perverse altars within the map of the homelands; and an eventual striking out the priests to these idols of the homelands that broke Egypt; and Israel obtained from these homelands such great transfer of wealth.

Inheriting the promise land gives us similar picture; this time The LORD Commanded Joshua as seen in Judges 2; that they must throw down the perverse altars of those that had been in the land; and just as we had seen in Egypt; both those in the palaces and the highways; and those in the homelands were to be contended against. This is what Gideon did that stirred the breakthrough; he advanced to gain. The battlefield has shifted; have you discerned the spiritual state of your homeland? and have you established the covenant of The LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST?

For like Gideon; we must pull down the strongholds in the homelands if we must march through the walls of Jericho to capture the palaces and the highways.

Word of Discernment: Prophecy is manifold – Abel Praise

On Monday, mulling over a critical article about ‘The UK Blessing’ video and its popularity, I mentioned it in passing to Abel Praise as I believe he sensed something going on.  After considering it he replied about prophecy being manifold, and which makes an excellent follow-up to Rosemary P’s following comment to Our Father’s Joy in Facing the Evil One (brought by Wanda Alger):

“YES and yes! We are in an intensifying battle, and this is why both those calling for repentance and those who see the awakening coming are, in a sense, both right. Yes, we need to repent, and yes, we need to also fix our eyes on what the Lord is doing around the world.” 

After kindly permitting my publishing this excellent insight, Abel explains:

“Prophecy is Manifold will help to give a broader perspective; and the battlegrounds. Truly; there are many in The Body who need to gain the right perspective on all that’s taking place because of the many questions arising in their hearts.”

PROPHECY IS MANIFOLD

Even Prophecies of Justice are manifold, The Prophet Jeremiah also spoke about the promised redemption of Israel; because The LORD attempts to capture both the actions that brought about the consequences of judgment; and also the redemptive pathway to restoration.

Also, in a time like this; the pandemic; the closure of Churches; and all that’s going on; the operations of prophecy and the unfolding season is manifold. For instance; it is true that the pandemic and the complexities it brought can be traced deep down to some significant spiritual gates that were compromised that watchmen lost sight of; and it gave birth to all the actions in the natural that is playing out. Yet in the outbreak of the disease; being the consequence of that loss, the Principles of Faith, Love and Hope play out and in the midst of the consequences The LORD uses it to hold HIS Body together to cushion the effects so the enemy doesn’t overplay his hands;

* Faith: There are those who through their walk with The LORD have grown up in a measure of faith that cannot be affected by this disease. They will have a responsibility to minister to those who have not grown in that measure of faith. This is where The Blessing Video plays a part.

* Hope: Even while in Egypt; and when Israel was in Babylon; The LORD would always send Prophets of Hope; to minister to HIS people that salvation would come though it may tarry because the judgments have a set time; but even in judgments; The LORD guards jealousy The Faith of HIS own and doesn’t want to loose them completely. The Blessing song also plays a part here in ministering hope.

* Love: This is where in the midst of being punished The LORD also wants HIS people to have love shared in their hearts; so that they can be in the state of being healed unto repentance; and also experience repentance unto healing; cos it can happen in several folds.

* The Judgments: Most of what we call judgments are consequences of actions or inactions and immediate reactions or responses by the principles of The Kingdom. If a watchman sleeps at his duty post, the thief would come in and plot destruction in the household; in many cases; people experience the consequences even when there is yet a sentence in Heaven’s Court that proclaims judgment. During the time when consequences are in play; that’s when The LORD sounds the alarm for repentance.

* Maturing in prophetic ministry brings the perspective of the manifold streams that a prophetic word, experience, season reveals. Even when The LORD wields the rod of correction; we cannot say we have seen it all; if we have not heard the perspective of HIS Heart from which that action is taken.

* So are we seeing some form of consequences or high places activities that has created the pandemic scenario; obviously. Are we seeing the negligence of The Church; absolutely; However; there is Faith, Hope and Love at work; and all of these play their part to bring The Church into correction and growth. For what it seems; The Blessing video may be doing a job of bring the nation through the pathway of healing unto repentance; because there are those who at this point have realized through the coming together it has created that they have been negligent for so long in many areas.

Selah!

Why the Lord doesn’t always show us our future — Wanda Alger

Following my introductions in this trilogy upon a common theme, I’m humbled to hear the Lord too refers to the ‘Counterfeiter’…

Don’t be anxious about the increased political control or tyrannical oppression that is hanging over our nation. The principalities from hell may believe they are advancing, but they are headed towards a trap with no way back. If we can put up with some temporary madness and seeming loss, the enemy is playing right into…

Triple-blast of ‘The Blessing’ video brings medically attested healing!!!

After being blasted by the Holy Spirit last Friday evening Nina felt able to take the wrap-around thigh-to-calf velco brace off and try walking normally and then sleep without it – NO PAIN AT ALL! Thank you Lord.
And so much easier to walk, albeit carefully, without being weighed down by brace and needing any support of a wheeled frame or crutches!! Moreover, no need trying to sleep with a straightened leg. Thank the Lord her leg wasn’t in a plaster-cast!

Yesterday, the orthopaedic consultant and the casualty doctor whom Nina first saw 25 days ago were amazed at her rapid progress because the latter had said it would take 6-8 weeks for the fractured knee-cap to knit and be strong enough to resume normal activity!!!  The consultant’s nurse just gaped; mouth open!

Afterwards, Nina saw the casualty doctor, who had to check Nina was the same person whom she’d seen and given that long prognosis. So Nina showed her 3 times how well the knee bends. “It shouldn’t be able to do that!” the doctor exclaimed and agreed the unexpected progress was “indeed” the result of prayer-support – AND we know it was Holy Spirit’s tangible fiery touch too! WE PRAISE YOU LORD! (The consultant advises it’s helpful to take walks using two-poles to avoid any fall, and take care on stairs.)

Reclining armchair enables sitting whilst wearing leg-brace

When I blogged here about what happened we hadn’t realised the healing the Lord was bringing but, as pointed out last night by the pastor of Catch The Fire Farnborough and who’s seen miracles overseas, worshiping Jesus is the best place to receive healing. (We well know this from 14 years ago when Nina was able to dance in worship whilst officially registered as permanently disabled – see From ‘Disabled’ to Enabled.)

You may have read about the Holy Spirit’s powerful double-visit in The Blessing Videos Fulfill…Prophecies but for the record here’s the fuller account with third visit:

1st ‘Sizzle’:

‘..(Friday evening) Nina was hit by a double ‘strike’ of the Holy Spirit whilst hearing this song twice! We’d been invited to watch The Surge, an online broadcast of leaders of the charismatic movement arising from the Toronto Outpouring…After John and Carol Arnott’s ‘welcome’ this historic event began with its own rendition of The Blessing, opened by a pianist at CTF Bournemouth followed by singers across the global family of CTF-PIH churches.

‘Upon my turning towards Nina whilst they sang, I saw her sizzling in her recliner-chair as she felt Holy Spirit surging up and down her.’

2nd ‘Sizzle’:

‘After the 2-hour session we watched The UK Blessing and at the end Nina stood up to move as best she could with a leg in brace to go upstairs. However, YouTube autoplay went on to the song’s version done in South Africa and, with her feet firmly placed at the foot of the stairs, she found herself gently falling face-first into the carpeted stairwell as a black African sang “…And make His face to shine upon you”!! WOWEEE!!!!

‘Then, I was struck that this song of the Old Testament’s Aaronic blessing could fulfill a number of prophecies of recent years. The latest of these was issued just 3 weeks ago by Christie Johnson of Australia’s Gold Coast, as republished on this blog in Watch the Horizon, Here Come the Waves of Awakening, one element of which reads:

‘3. The Sound and the Wind – A New Sound of Worship: “I first heard an unusual sound that I wasn’t familiar with. I believe this is speaking of a new sound of worship that is going to precede the mighty outpouring. This worship is beginning to break forth, even now, all across the earth…”

‘Moreover, the song’s verse that felled my wife speaks directly into the application of that prophetic vision and word: ‘Divine strategy for this new sound:…this is a moment of setting yourself in a position to gaze upon the face of the Beloved….!!’

3rd ‘Sizzle’:

Over the weekend, Nina mentioned friends had asked if she’d seen another version and so we sat to watch ‘The Blessing (Kids)’, but this time it brought far more than a ‘sizzle’!

Nina was transfixed in her recliner with her body shaking and eyes almost popping out on stalks…!

SON of THE Father; or son of the father? – Steve Hepden

Espied on Facebook home-page this exceptional insight into the counterfeiter by dear Steve Hepden at the beginning of an eventful day. It fits so well as a lead-in to another at the top of my emails and just can’t get it off my mind. Also tallies with my short series on the strategies of our adversary and accuser. May you be blessed too… 

Son of The Father or son of the father?

In my study and research for the chapter ‘Abba Father,’ I came across something at the very end of Jesus’ life: that Satan used to deceive the people, and humiliate and destroy Jesus. At Passover, there was a custom, which gave the Jews the choice to release a prisoner. Pontius Pilate used this to appease them in an effort to keep the peace. The two men Pilate offered to the people were Barabbas and Jesus.

Barabbas was a ‘freedom fighter,’ an insurrectionist, part of a revolutionary movement, and he with others were in prison because they had committed murder in the uprising, Mark 15:6-15. Amazingly Jesus was actually accused of participating in similar activities when He was before the Roman authorities. As far as Pilate was concerned, Jesus had done nothing wrong. He knew that Jesus was not a criminal, but he didn’t know who He was.

Was the choice of Jesus in contrast to Barabbas no accident, or was it premeditated, and malevolent?

These are two Messianic figures with a choice between one who led an armed struggle, and took life to gain a better life with a promise of freedom and a new kingdom; and then the mysterious Jesus who also promised freedom and a new Kingdom, but who talked about laying down your life as the way to gain life.

Pilate had no option but to put it to the people as he was under such pressure. It was a no-win situation, as the people began to chant ‘give us Barabbas,’ and soon it became a frenzied shout due to the crowd psychology of the few stirring up the many. It reached a peak when the mob assumed the guilt of Jesus’ death and said, “Let his blood be on us and on our children,” Matt 27:25. As we know the consequences were severe.

Look at the meaning of Barabbas’ name. His last name, Barabbas, means son (bar) of the father (abba). Jesus had always referred to himself as the Son of the Father. Barabbas’ first name was significant too. Pilate asked them, “Which one do you want me to release to you: Jesus Barabbas, or Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Matt 27:17, NIV.

Amazingly Barabbas’ first name was Jesus. So you see Jesus son of the father opposing Jesus Son of the Father! Two people with the same name!

It is important that we see this event as Satanic malevolence as the father of lies, John 8:44, deceiving and confusing the people with a counterfeit Messiah. Satan’s purpose was to rob Jesus of His identity by stealing His name, as well as His status as Son. Is this another attempt at the ‘final solution’? Jesus knew He could have asked His Father to put at His disposal the legions of angels that were watching since Gethsemane, Matt 26:53, but He didn’t, He did the better thing, and let Satan have his way. We know why……

What about our choice? Are we going to let Satan undermine our relationship with Abba Father, steal our inheritance as Abba’s children, plunder our identity, or our right to call God “Abba,” because we would lose our capacity to commune and communicate with Him with affection and intimacy?

No…..!

News of three more prophecies coming to pass – the UK and the EU!

Time to wrap up news over the last few days of more prophecies moving into fulfillment, as well as today’s 1 o’clock news of the prophesied virtual church crashing the internet! Numbers shown below are for logging purposes within Prophecies Fulfilled catalogue, now nearly 190 examples!

First, once again mainstream media mirrors the words of a prophecy, making over two dozen examples (thank you Margaret H), and now one brought FOUR years ago:

14.3 – Patsy Southway (10 May 2016): Month of May – The ‘Domino Effect’

13.22 – David Noakes (17 Nov 2015):The Fall of the EU (warning “Come Out”)

Here’s brilliant news on the latest example of fulfilled contemporary prophecy:

“There is going to be a church-planting movement that is virtual and viral in the earth; not taking the place of the Church at all.”  (Dr Sharon Stone, 7th November 2019)

Click image for link

3Counties Church in Hammer, Haslemere has been running Sunday morning services from three different homes via YouTube for several weeks. However, last Sunday, 17th May, we had to come offline because the young teacher’s audio and visual signals were so badly out of synchronisation the picture kept wobbling.

Obviously, there wasn’t enough bandwidth for a joined-up broadcast. And do I recall a prophecy from some 6 months ago about church going online with ‘virtual’ services and even becoming viral??

Therefore, it’s no surprise Premier Christian News reports ‘Looks like the church broke the internet’; Zoom crashes as thousands stream Sunday services

Here’s the full video message Dr Sharon Stone brought on “20 Kairos Words for 2020” where, at 52:22 minutes, she begins with the 19th word – Multiply: 

“Also, a word the Lord gave me about the ‘viral virtual church’…I think it’s going to get a lot of criticism in this next season but I think, with the billion souls harvest that has already begun, that it’s not going to be about ‘Do I have time to find another building? Do I have time to build a building?’…There is going to be a church-planting movement that is virtual and viral in the earth as well; not taking the place of the Church at all.”

The Time of Reckoning is here — Wanda Alger

Quote

This direct word of stern exhortation to believers on the Lord judging the Church is aimed mainly at our brethren in the USA; yet as one would expect, it complements those recently received of the in-depth ‘directive’ for the global Church and upon the ‘humbling’ of Britain.  Herein, we’re taken to task for not rising to perceive the Lord’s perspective, yet encouraged to keep His purposes paramount:

This word is not for the faint of heart. I rarely give words in first-person from the Lord, but this one flowed out of me during a recent time of prayer as if I was transcribing a dictation. Though this is a strong exhortation, I felt the Lord’s deep passion concerning our plight as well…

The Blessing videos fulfill ‘new sound of worship’ prophecies – PM Boris “filled with admiration”! (F/P #166)

Boris Johnson’s “big thank you” award letter to Tim Hughes, producer of online worship song The UK Blessing – which went viral in its first fortnight! – puts a critical article on a ‘prophecy’ website to shame.

In his personal Points of Light award, issued in recognition of outstanding voluntary service making a change in their community, the Prime Minister writes,

“At a time when our churches are closed, I am filled with admiration to hear how you have used the power of music to bring together Christians of all denominations from across our United Kingdom.

“Your sensational singing masterpiece ‘The UK Blessing’ is truly uplifting and has touched millions around the world with its message of hope and its beauty.

“As we continue to protect our NHS and save lives, I know you are also leading efforts through your own church to support those in need in Birmingham and to befriend those who are feeling lonely or isolated at this time.”

This is in the opposite vein to a hyper-critical author who presumes God does not approve of singing a blessing over our sinful, rebellious nation and that’s why He’s allowed churches to be shut! (In some of his rationale the author acts more as advocate for the Accuser, than for our Saviour!)  YET, we’ve had an unequivocal demonstration the Lord definitely DOES approve, as seen by His Spirit moving during this song to bless those who hear it!

Last night, Nina was hit by a double ‘strike’ of the Holy Spirit whilst hearing this song twice!  We’d been invited to watch The Surge, an online broadcast of leaders of the charismatic movement arising from the Toronto Outpouring – namely Catch The Fire and Partners In Harvest – in which they announced their merger under the leadership of Duncan and Kate Smith (originally from England).

After John and Carol Arnott’s ‘welcome’ this historic event began with its own rendition of The Blessing, opened by a pianist at CTF Bournemouth followed by singers across the global family of CTF-PIH churches. Upon my turning towards Nina whilst they sang, I saw her sizzling in her chair as she felt Holy Spirit surging up and down her.

After the 2-hour session we watched The UK Blessing and at the end Nina stood up to move as best she could with a leg in brace to go upstairs. However, YouTube autoplay went on to the song’s version done in South Africa and, with her feet firmly placed at the foot of the stairs, she found herself gently falling face-first into the carpeted stairwell as a black African sang “…And make His face to shine upon you”!!  WOWEEE!!!!

“I first heard an unusual sound that I wasn’t familiar with. I believe this is speaking of a new sound of worship that is going to precede the mighty outpouring. This worship is beginning to break forth, even now, all across the earth…” (emphases mine)

Moreover, the song’s verse that felled my wife speaks directly into the application of that prophetic vision and word:

Divine strategy for this new sound:  ‘To every son and daughter: this is a moment of setting yourself in a position to gaze upon the face of the Beloved….’!!

Need I say any more?

PS; the ‘triple-blast’ effect upon Nina has since brought a medically attested healing.

GPS #47.5 – ‘God-incidental’ confirmation from the Lord

Following a reader’s comment upon the Battleground Has Shifted by Abel Praise, I’ve been chatting with Abel on-and-off whilst drafting GPS #47.4.

We find we have a very similar appreciation of how the Lord is working in and aligning our personal lives. In my drafting I’d been looking for Revd Thomas Harry’s previous paper I’d blogged about and found it was FOUR years ago (ie 2016).

THEN I heard a ‘ping’ from another reply from Abel and was stunned upon reading his saying,

“I trust The LORD working out very significant things. Since 2016 I have kept significant chronicles of labors concerning Britain. The LORD had visited me with in dreams, visions, to contend for; and I noticed the intensity of prayer leads increased since last year and Britain has been very frequent on my prophetic radar. I have watched The LORD directing the march and we’re marching along. Beautiful things lay ahead…”

I immediately replied, “LOL LOL LOL >> I’ve just copied title and link from old post into the one I’m working on Confirmations of 2016’s Prophetic Words for a New Season 

And so I tell Abel ever so briefly what I’m drafting and he says,

“It is truly amazing. I have seen The LORD had granted you such significant wisdom for prophetic profiling and sequencing. It’s what it takes to decode the road map and I am amazed at the work you are accomplishing with this wisdom in Richards Watch. For those who see and understand the implementation of heavenly blueprints, it will be a great treasure…. Every bit of the puzzle is sacred.”

Now, in starting that previous post(102nd on GPS) I was nudged to check when I began blogging on this topic – it was 12.12.2016!  NO OTHER YEAR would do!!!

A Directive: Urgent Word for the Global Church (GPS #47.4)

There’s no such thing as ‘coincidence,’ especially for those walking-in-the-Spirit when we realise such events are ‘God-incidents’, as though the Lord is giving messages by His GPS, or ‘Global Prophecy Signalling’ system.  When we start putting it all together we can easily see that prophecies and insights are pieces of His invisible jigsaw puzzle that takes shape before us showing aspects and perspectives upon a HUGE Heavenly Blueprint – even a road-map, as Abel Praise found.

So here are the pieces for the 47th such instance, which is interesting number as 1947 was the year of Smith-Wigglesworth’s prophecy of a major move of the Holy Spirit in Britain, as well as being my birth-year. The picture on these 47th signals or pieces is of The Church:

  • GPS 47.1 – On 29th April Tony Puccio in Tucson, USA, blogs about a tornado turning churches upside-down. (I recalled picture possibly from Revd Thomas Harry’s paper; but where and when? Found at Confirmations of 2016’s Prophetici Words for a New Season.)
  • GPS 47.2 – On 30th April J.A.C. Laferriere in Ontario, Canada, replies to my request of the 29th with details of Geraldine Fisher’s prophecy on those ‘playing church’.
  • GPS 47.3 – that weekend was the middle of fortnight drafting this dual-post on Revd Christopher Wickland of Fareham, England‘s pre-death prophecy. (Delay arising from situation of Nina having fractured a knee-cap, so posted 7th May).
  • GPS 47.4 – 1st May is very significant for Thomas Harry, pastor of Falkirk Full Gospel Church in Scotland, as told in his article linked below.
  • GPS 47.5 – message today from Abel Praise in Nigeria, simultaneously connects into 2016 -WOW!  (The emerging piece in above illustration? See next post.)

A week ago today, Thursday 7th May, pastor Thomas emails me as follows:

‘Dear Richard – Greetings, hope you are doing well. Been a long time and it truly is an amazing time we are in.

‘The Lord gave me a word for the global church and I believe it is a major confirmation of some of the prophecies we have received. Felt to share with you as we truly are on verge of greatest awakening ever.

‘Would be great if you could raise awareness and share with others as I believe it is key for the church just now. I believe it would be a major blessing for your readers and help them prepare for this historic moment that we have all longed for.

Blessings, Thomas

He then provides the intro to URGENT WORD FOR THE GLOBAL CHURCH

‘Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

‘I urge you to take the time to read this word which I believe to be one of the most urgent for the body of Christ in many years. We live in an unprecedented time where believer and unbelievers are trying to understand where we are and where we are going. This word has not been released lightly and is not simply another word or prophecy, but direction from the Lord that will help prepare us for the history changing moment right in front of us.

‘What is ahead is greater than the Reformation and will have a bigger impact than that. This will be a reformation of the world as we know it, not just a doctrine within Christianity. Most of the world believe this pandemic is the defining moment of 2020 and indeed recent history – it is not! It is about to fade into a low background noise and a mere footnote of history compared to what God is about to do. Our Almighty, Eternal God can never be triumphed over by a disease.

‘So I urge you to prepare and open your heart as we are on the precipice of one of the defining moments in history similar to Noah’s flood, Israel being delivered from Egypt and other historical milestones…’ (continue reading at link’s SECOND paragraph)

Immediately, I’m struck by Thomas referring specifically to the Lord as ‘Our Almighty, Eternal God’, which is how I addressed Him when enquiring about the origin of the pandemic, as told here.  And so I follow the link and, finding it’s a lengthy read, I print a hard-copy for reading at leisure over the weekend.

I CANNOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH YOUR PRINTING AND VERY CAREFULLY STUDYING AND WEIGHING THIS  URGENT WORD 

My hard-copy is covered in highlighter pen as so many points are personally poignant. I may share them soon.

AND I FIND THAT OUR ‘GPS’ WEEKEND FEATURES SIGNIFICANTLY!!  Although published on Z3News.com a week ago today, Thomas writes therein (underline mine),

‘..on 1st of May, I had the most unique spiritual experience of my life. I woke from sleep and felt something like a spiritual lightning go through my being. There was a momentary spiritual battle and then I suddenly knew and declared out loud: “The Greatest Outpouring and Harvest in history is about to happen”. It was the clearest God has ever spoken to me in my entire life…’

‘Direction’ from The Lord on:
  • Our Focus – Prepare For The Day Of His Power
  • World At A Standstill – God’s Greater Plan
  • Glory Arising on Believers – Example of John G Lake
  • Greatest Awakening The World Has Ever Seen
  • Why A Great Awakening Now?
  • Unprecedented Signs & Wonders
  • Be Bold or Miss Your Time Of Visitation – Where Were The 380?
  • Restoration Of The Fear Of God
  • Persecution Inside & Outside Church
  • Beware of Jealousy – Rise of Esthers, Josephs & Daniels
  • Tsunami of Prayer Leading to Tsunami of God’s Glory – No More Grey Areas
  • How Do We Prepare? – Focused Time With Jesus

Upon re-reading this early last Sunday morning I noticed Thomas’ reference to ‘We are going from outbreak to Out-Bread – where the experience of Jesus as the Bread of Life will multiply across the earth.’  Before we rise for the day we break bread and pray from Keep Praying & Bless – amazed to read Sunday’s decree: “I Am The Bread Of Life!”

THEREFORE, I GOT ‘GOD-INCIDENTAL’ CONFIRMATION OF THIS DOCUMENT!

May you be thoroughly blessed…

Word of Discernment: The battleground has shifted – Abel Praise

After having posted the transcript on Monday of Veronika West’s hearing from the Lord, “Get ready, get ready! For the stage is set, for a Spiritual Showdown is about to take place in this land!”, it is significant that the following two-part Facebook posting was published the next day by a Nigerian brother:

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED I

The Enemy Thinks He Is Attacking The Church By Lengthening The Time To Halt Gatherings; The Church Thinks The Enemy Is Attacking Her By Trying To Stop Her From Gathering. The Kingdom Sees It’s At The Threshold Of A New Era; And Needs To Accomplish The Overhauling Of The Living Systems That Has Entrenched Perversion; And Will Accomplish This Through The Ignorance Of Religion and Perceived Wickedness of The Enemy. At The End Of All These, Those Who Hear The Voice, The Shepherd’s Voice, Would Have Hoisted The Flag Of The Kingdom For They Know That The Battle-Ground Has Shifted; And New Territories Are Being Contested In This Hour For The Next Phase of Kingdom Advance.

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED II – THE BATTLEGROUND OF THE ARMIES

The battleground has shifted; while in Egypt; they didn’t need boots, spears or weapons of war; they had amongst them ministers that spoke, taught, encouraged them in their assemblies to believe and have faith that the promises of their deliverance and a deliverer would come through; but when the battleground shifted; their ministers/ ministry shifted; they now needed to be kitted up for war; they had to; and had transitioned into The Battleground of The Armies. Armies are those equipped with the authority to pull down and rebuild territories. The Battleground of The Armies would equip them and get them to recover the authority, heritages and weapons of war because they were coming into a new phase; the tearing down of territories and their rebuilding of territories according to heavenly blueprints.

Those who didn’t understand that the battleground has shifted cried to return to the old normal; those who discerned the shift and walked forward into their new battleground like Joshua and Caleb believed for conquest.

We have been fed hope in the days of hope; but we must discern that the battleground has shifted; and are now in the battleground of The Armies – this we already see in the enemy attempting to wield authority to tear down state-structures and rebuild them into his way – but those who walk through this; discerning the shift and peeping into the wisdom of The LORD will be equipped in this critical hour for the tearing down of strongholds and rebuilding the cities of their inheritances measured out to them.

The Battleground has shifted – Out of The Battleground of The Armies; the authority to tear down and rebuild cities will be gained. Who will wield this authority in your city – The Righteous or The Perverse?

Background

Abel Praise writes at The War-Room Ministries: Kingdom Military Missions and I’m aware that Veronika values his insights and Biblical interpretations of prophecy. He provides the following details about this word on the battleground:

“The Origin Of The WORD:
It’s The WORD The LORD shared with me in time of fellowship; more so, it has been built up through series of things The LORD had shared with me over recent months to build a new understanding within. I usually see them as my teaching moments with The LORD; because it’s taken a number of dreams, visions, insights in time of fellowship; so I put out a great deal of understanding that several experiences had brought to create a perspective of the what’s ahead.

Veronika West’s post was a big boost and gave that A-HA moment; so it’s worth making reference to. I do not yet know if I will be allowed to put out all of the dreams, visions and all; but one critical experience I had in the midst of this season; and in all The LORD had shown concerning Covid19 moment; was an instruction in one of the dreams where The LORD said to me; “I had been given responsibility to prepare people concerning The Covid19 season the nations would walk through”; and that is the point from where The Posts concerning The Battleground shifting began to be released yesterday (Tues). I trust that with this; the perspective will be clear in your heart and the divine flow will be seen. Once again; I am humbled by the commitment to the work entrusted to you; and your reaching out to me.”

1 o’clock News-blog: exposure of corruption of ‘bottom dwellers’, as prophesied – F/P #10.12

Thank you to Linda for posting this hot-on-the-heels of my publishing Christie Johnson’s 5-fold vision and prophetic word on Waves of Awakening, wherein she reports seeing the exposure of ‘bottom-dwellers.’ So here’s news of a fulfillment of that aspect of her vision as well as of my prophetical musing in 2016 along these lines:

Previous Prophecy Updates:

Five-fold prophecy on waves of awakening and opening wells…etc

Highly recommended by the pastor of the new Catch The Fire Church in Farnborough, this prophetic vision and word premiered on 24 April from Australia’s Nate & Christy Johnson confirms and enhances not only what Veronika West brought in February on reopening ancient wells, but also my 2004 vision of the Rock bursting through the rotten fabric of society and much earlier one on Shaking, as well as prophetical musing of the exposure of evil and corruption and fulfillments thereof (F/P #10). 

I want to share a vision I had a little while ago that I didn’t feel immediately released to share until now. It speaks of five specific events, two that we are already in the middle of, and three events that are to come. I also want to share some prayer strategies for you, so I encourage you to read to the end.

In the vision, I was standing on the shoreline of a great ocean. The waves were calm and relatively still as I stood at the water’s edge with gentle whispers of wind and soft waves lapping on the sand over my feet. In the vision, I heard the Lord say, “Keep watch on the horizon.”

My eyes remained fixed on the horizon, which was unchanged for a time, but then, suddenly I began to feel a violent shaking beneath the ground that I was standing on and then the waters began to recede rapidly at my feet. I was shaken but did not lose my footing through this. As the waters receded, it felt like a mighty suction, like a strong vacuum sucking up the waters and sand all around me. Surprised, I looked down and immediately recognized that this was a sign of an incoming tsunami. I heard His voice again, “Stand still. Keep watch on the horizon.” I felt no fear or sense of unease, but rather, I felt excited anticipation. I glanced again at my feet as I couldn’t help but feel that the waters had been drawn back so drastically that there was no residue of moisture left, and I could no longer feel sand, but instead, I felt bedrock beneath where I stood. I then noticed different sand crabs and other bottom feeders began to emerge out of their underground burrows and scurry away in a quick and terrifying movement.

I then heard His voice a third time say, “Stand still. Keep watch on the horizon.” My eyes adjusted again to the horizon, but still, I did not see anything, however, I heard something. A new sound I wasn’t familiar with, a thunderous roar so loud that the sand around me began to shake, but I remained firm on the bedrock, and then I saw it. A tremendous barrel of water was surging over the horizon and pummelling towards the beach. I could see not just one barrel, but many that subsequently followed the first. I then heard His voice a fourth time, “standstill, brace for impact.” I began to brace myself for its arrival, but not with the typical response for an incoming tsunami by either cowering or running away. Instead, I positioned my feet firmly on the bedrock and spread my arms wide. As I dug my feet in deep, I could feel water again, and it began to spring up from the ground underneath me. It gushed up rapidly out of the bedrock like an underground waterfall that was bursting forth wildly. The water then surrounded me as a pool. As the mighty waves neared land, I was met with a sudden rush of wind. It was a ferocious wind, but strangely, it didn’t push me over, but surrounded me and whipped up a whirlpool in the pool of water I was now immersed in. As incredibly strong as it was, it was a joyful feeling, I felt like a child on a ride. Mere moments following the wind, the tsunami of water hit, but the pool of water that I was standing in was like a shield all around me and as though it were alive, it surrounded me and carried me to the top of the wave, causing me to stand and ride atop the powerful breaker of water as it surged inland. As it tumbled towards the land, I watched as it engulfed mountains effortlessly and swallowed them completely. I looked down and noticed countless thousands had been swept up in these waves. They were not drowning but were being carried upon the great and mighty waters.

I want to first say, that while tsunamis speak of destruction, I felt in this vision that there was no sense of ‘incoming doom’ or ‘destruction’ towards the people of the earth, but rather, I felt the destruction was implied against the enemy, which I will share about. I broke down this vision and studied verses that applied to it and found that there are five events the Lord showed me, with five strategies of direction that will see us through the coming weeks, months and even years (I say this with hopeful expectation and not in-coming doom.)

1. The Shaking and the Rock.

I believe the shaking implies to the time we are currently in. This virus- is not from the Lord. The shaking, however, I believe is. He is using this time to shake off idols and things we once put our trust in, every last one of us. Anything that can be shaken has been shaken, but He is faithful to protect us through it. In the vision, it was very clear that I did not lose my footing. So, take heart, this shaking is necessary. Though things around you may be shaken, as you remain standing on the ROCK, you will not lose your footing. Though the sand around you is being sifted, you will find yourself standing on the unshakable rock of our faithful Lord, Jesus. The Lord is using this to remove the chaff and He is causing His remnant to arise amidst it all. This is a part of the shaking that will cause the fear of the Lord to be magnified, in a holy way, in this hour. I am not speaking of ‘fear of heart’ but the ‘awe and wonder’ of the Lord is being restored in this unprecedented moment in history.

Amos 9:9

“For behold, I am commanding, and I shall shake and sift the house of Israel among all Nations (and cause it to tremble) Like grain is shaken in a sieve (removing the chaff), But not a kernel (of the faithful remnant) shall fall to the ground and be lost (from My sight).

Divine Strategy for this moment of shaking:

Keep your feet planted on Jesus, the Rock. Just as I felt the bedrock beneath my feet. Be encouraged, you are the faithful remnant, and the Lord will not allow you to be lost from His sight or fall to the ground. Keep in His Word daily.

2. The Receding of Waters and the Watchman.

I believe we are also standing in this current moment of watching the waters recede. There is great exposure taking place of underground plans. Plans that have been hidden in darkness. Where there was a mighty suction that drew back all of the waters that once covered ‘the bottom dwellers’, I believe we are going to see an ‘exposure’ of demonic agendas revealed for all the world to see. These demonic agendas will have no place to hide but will be forced to run away in swift terror. I believe this is speaking of evil political plans against the President of the U.S, those involved in hidden agendas of sex trafficking, also, hidden agendas against the unborn, even agendas against the church. In this sense, I knew the crab was represented in a negative way, and prophetically speaking, crabs can represent strongholds, unclean things, and hidden cancers.

Psalm 48:5

They saw it, then they were amazed; they were stricken with terror, they fled in alarm.

Divine strategy for the receding:

When I saw the waters recede, I heard the Lord tell me to “Stand still, Keep watch on the horizon.” I believe this is speaking specifically to the watchman at this hour. Those that God has positioned as watchmen and guardians over the lands. The Lord is speaking to you to declare the end from the beginning. Command the bottom-dwellers to be exposed in the mighty Name of Jesus. Speak to every unclean thing that its time of hiding is over. Command those unclean strongholds to be unseated, unhoused, forced into the light and exposed in the light of the SON, in Jesus’ mighty name. Stand still and see the deliverance of the Lord.

3. The Sound and the Wind – A New Sound of Worship

I first heard an unusual sound that I wasn’t familiar with. I believe this is speaking of a new sound of worship that is going to precede the mighty outpouring. This worship is beginning to break forth, even now, all across the earth. I was led to study once again, the story of Pentecost, and found that a sound preceded the fire of the Holy Spirit. In the vision, as I positioned my feet steadily on the rock and spread my arms wide, as though in surrender, I believe this is a picture of the Lord releasing a new sound through worship in this hour. As the Body of Christ positions themselves firmly on the rock, and surrenders their all to Him – a new sound is going to break forth that will be heard and felt all across the earth, like a sonic boom that breaks the sound barriers. It will usher in the wind of His Holy Spirit that will cause the waves of revival to hit the earth, one after the other.

Divine strategy for this new sound:

To every son and daughter: this is a moment of setting yourself in a position to gaze upon the face of the Beloved. I also feel this is a directive strategy to the worshipers and the psalmists in this hour. Before the sound came, I heard Him say, “Stand still and keep watch.” I believe He is directing you to ‘keep watch and listen for this new sound, unheard of before on the earth, but a sound heard only in heaven up until this point – it is going to burst forth out of you at this moment. Pay attention to the lyrics and melodies that you will begin to hear, and prepare to release these songs and sounds quickly. They are the sounds that will usher in the mighty outpouring.

4. The Well of Water – Ancient Wells.

I keep hearing these words in my spirit from Numbers 21:17, “here the Israelites sang this song: “Spring up, O well! Yes, sing its praises!” The song from Jesus Culture, “Alive in the river” also comes to mind. I feel as though there are Ancient wells of refreshing that the Lord is bursting forth through His people in this hour of awakening. I also feel that these ‘ancient wells’ carry strategies and divine revelation for this hour in which we live. As you keep yourself firmly positioned on the rock, the well itself, the waters of the Holy Spirit, will burst forth up and out of you and will be to you as a wall and garrison around you. His rivers of living water are going to carry you and cause you to ride upon the waves of awakening that are on the horizons of the earth and are about to burst through into our natural realm. You will ride on these waves with authority, strategy, and direction. His words, “brace for impact” in this moment of the vision stood out to me. The definition for the word brace can mean; make (a structure) stronger or firmer – our worship is strengthening us as a whole and making us stronger and prepared for the incoming waves.

Divine strategy for the ancient wells:

“Stand still and brace for impact.” This is the direction of firmly planting yourself on the Word that the Lord has spoken over this moment, bring to rehearsal that which He has spoken and promised you. Your surrender and worship through the shaking (the arms spread wide), will cause these wells of ancient living water to spring forth within, through and around you. The Lord is positioning you, protecting you and preparing you for amazing days ahead.

5. The Tsunami Waves and the Leveling of Mountains

As I rode atop the waves and watched as the mountains beneath me were effortlessly flattened and swallowed, I believe this speaks of a new and higher realm of authority that is coming to the Body of Christ. Strongholds that we have spent years praying into to break, will be flattened in a moment in this coming hour. You will ride high atop the waves of awakening and revival and you do not need to fear the incoming waves. It is going to be a wild ride of excitement, so stand still, watch the horizon and brace for what is about to come. The countless numbers of people that I saw, I believe, represent the prodigal that will return to the Father in this hour’s awakening. They will be swept up in this mighty movement and will be carried upon the rivers of His living water. God is moving mightily, the ground is ready and prepared, the harvest is ripe.

“In fact, I have made of you a new, sharp threshing implement with sharp edges; You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and make the hills like chaff. You will winnow them, and the wind will carry them away, and high wind will scatter them; But you will rejoice in the Lord, You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.”

Isaiah 41:15-16

Divine strategies for the incoming waves:

It will be an effortless motion as you are swiftly pulled up on top of the waves, but it will require surrender. Continue standing guard, continue standing on the Word, continue worshipping and watch as the Lord springs up ancient wells within you, as He exposes wickedness to run in fear, and causes a mighty outpouring of His Spirit, cleansing and refreshing to pour out across the tired and weary earth. Begin calling in the waves, begin calling in the lost in your family who will be swept up in this wave (not drowned by it, but carried upon it.) Keep speaking to the mountains of impossibility – they are about to be flattened before you. The Way-maker is on the move. Position yourself in readiness.

LOOK TO THE HORIZON – HERE HE COMES! 🌬🌊
