A clarification of my remarks and the purpose of this blog

Thank you to the reader who gently took me to task for mixing personal remarks with others’ prophecies.  There’s absolutely no way I’d wish to engender disunity – and I do not want to be misconstrued (for the sake of brevity the remark wasn’t in full context ).

As others may have felt uneasy over my lead into the previous post, please allow me to clarify:

Background

First, my service to the Body of Christ is like being an air-traffic controller in an airport tower watching incoming and outgoing aircraft, or coordinating messages on the Lord’s ‘GPS’ (Global Prophecy Signals).  Moreover, I see what they bring may fit into certain patterns, or jigsaw pieces. – I wanted to name this blog ‘Invisible Jigsaw’ but couldn’t find a suitable graphic! 🙂 

Hence my frequent blogging about prophecies that come by ‘coincidence’ and ‘marry-up’, or fit into a ‘jigsaw puzzle’, thereby confirming what others hear from the Lord.  This is in accord with the protocol for prophecy at 1 Corinthians 14:29-32, viz: 

‘Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop. For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.’

Secondly, as and whenever possible I notice events indicative of prophecy coming to pass and have logged nearly 190 examples.  This is not for the purpose of measuring anyone’s capacity to prophesy, but simply to prove that contemporary prophecy works.

(When revamping that catalogue’s content, the Lord took me to task over truncating its opening scripture on true and false prophets – so I retained it in full. It got confirmed that afternoon when a website requested removal from my directory within The State of The Prophetic in the UK on the grounds of theological objections to others! In fact, whilst revamping I’d noted that site’s very small number of prophecies.)

Therefore, my introductory comments to prophecies on this blog are provided not only as personal observations, but also as a contribution to weighing and testing them.

A couple of recent items, however, have confirmed details of my points in a protracted discussion on an issue that unusually generated a righteousness anger within me.

The Issue

Two readers drew my attention to a critique of The UK Blessing.  I agree in the main with its author’s remarks on churches’ failure to follow Biblical teaching and not encouraging repentance; but not his claiming, “Though well-intentioned, what these singers are doing cannot be justified from Scripture, nor does it express the message that God wants to communicate at this time.”

The article had attracted dozens of responses and as my wife’s healing of a broken knee-cap had been powerfully accelerated, I briefly commented upon two facts: an error in his quoted timing and the Holy Spirit’s effect through that song. Polite debate ensued, but I was saddened to be wrongly accused of attacking him in person! Maybe it arose from my later quoting Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as implicitly authorising the song ?

Another commentator felt uneasy with the song and agreed, “it’s true that people aren’t really wanting to hear the message of repentance…even now. It’s all about unity….. It doesn’t seem right to me.”

Therefore, I quoted Jesus’ prayer for unity in all who believe in Him. The addressee fully accepted this and from his own background agreed with my additional remark:

“Little wonder satan seeks to destroy and rip apart the Church. The back-stabbing between various clergy and churchgoers made me utterly despise churchianity as a child and I ended up in the devil’s camp for decades. Only Jesus’ personal rescue when I almost died 30 years ago made me see sense and get saved and freed me from it – praise you Lord!”  [See ‘Churches in Conflict’ in first part of my personal story.]

  1. Every area of this world is being heavily hit with the spirit of division, even so the Christian faith, and it hurts my heart to see the divisions, and accusations that come from “the accuser of the brethren” the devil and his demonic spirits sent on assignment. It also hurts my heart that in the past I have added to any division by calling out conflicting doctrines without making it absolutely clear that “flesh and blood” are not the focus, but in this spiritual battle the enemy is “the god of this world” (2Cor 4:4), our common enemy satan, as we have the risen, glorified Lord Jesus Christ in common, and the battle is against the “strategies, deceit, lies, schemes, wiles, devices, ‘beguiling and bewitching’ principalities and powers, despotisms, master spirits who are the world rulers of this present darkness, the spiritual forces of wickedness and evil in the fallen heavenly sphere” Ephesians 6:10-18

    Abba Father, we pray “to live and lead our lives worthy of the divine calling to which we are called, with behavior that is a credit and summons to God’s service; living as becomes you, with complete humility, meekness, unselfishness, gentleness, mildness, with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances [because You love us and therefore we love you and love one another, because You loved us first and died for us]. Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness produced by the Holy Spirit in the binding power of peace. There is one body and one Spirit — just as there is one hope that belongs to the calling we receive. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all Who is above all, Sovereign over all, pervading all and living in all believers. Yet grace is given to each of us individually, in different proportions to the measure of Christ’s rich and bounteous gift. Therefore he bestows varied gifts and his intention is the perfecting, maturing, and fully equipping of the saints (His consecrated people) that they should do the work of ministering Christ and building up The Body (the Church), attaining oneness in the faith and comprehension of the full and accurate knowledge of God and his glory of the Son, arriving at maturity, to the height of Christ’s stature, the Head, and the fullness of the Christ, and the completeness found in Him; no longer children tossed like ships to and fro, wavering with every doctrine, the prey of cunning, and cleverly devised myths of unscrupulous men, using every form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead” Ephesians 4:1-14 AMP classic

    • Yes Holy Spirit has highlighted those scriptures to me also. As Jesus said, a house divided against itself cannot stand. My heart was greatly grieved when I read the article on The UK Blessing. It is the goodness of God that leads us to repentance.

    • We stand in agreement again sis’ as I join with that confession too. At times it’s important to take a stand in love, especially when discerning what’s working behind the scenes unbeknown to others. So it was more of a courtroom drama as I was learning about operating in the heavenly ones, for our ‘testimony’ means ‘to give judicial witness’! (Perhaps I should have been a lawyer as always liked those tv dramas, beginning as teenager with Perry Mason series!)

    Good to be both vulnerable and transparent but also resolute in drawing the line in the sand.

    Perhaps the image of the Lord drawing in the sand comes to mind along with one course with an element of computerisation in it which called the try it and see it works place as the “sand-box”…

    Keeping you & Nina in prayer Elaine
