Can you bear what Jesus is telling us?? – Thomas Harry

Continuing On the Mysteries of the Kingdom per Matthew 13 – and with GPS #47.4 -A Directive: Urgent Word for the Global Church in mind – a fortnight ago as I write, Thomas Harry emails:

“Hi Richard…We truly live in a pivotal moment where it feels like the dam is about to burst! The Lord has begun to release downloads of truth and revelation that this generation is barely ready for.

“The Lord gave me a word to help prepare believers for the level of truth and revelation He is releasing. Just published today so would be great if you can make people aware as I believe it will prevent people walking away from the Lord in this New Era.”

But the item got lost and then found! I acknowledge and indicate my intentions of blogging personal introductory encouragement and Thomas replies, 

“Truly Richard, the scrolls of revelation have begun to be opened and I am speechless at what the Lord is revealing, it is exciting but frightening at same time as I don’t know how most believers will be able to receive it. Thanks again for sharing it as truly believers must prepare themselves for what is coming.”

So here’s his opening section…

URGENT: CAN YOU BEAR WHAT JESUS IS TELLING THIS GENERATION?

John 16:12 “There is so much more I want to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.”

‘Jesus has begun to tell this generation things that most believers simply cannot bear. It is vital to remember Jesus said this to His 12 disciples, who had walked with Him, seen His miracles and the impossible. Yet there were some truths that were so deep and unimaginable that even they could not handle it. They walked by sight, not faith and saw Jesus face to face. They saw Him walk on water, multiply food, raise the dead and yet there were truths He could not reveal to them as they could not handle it.

‘So where does that leave this generation, if even the disciples could not bear some things? Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Jesus is going to reveal it anyway, but only to those who are hungry and have open hearts. This is a biblical principle seen in Matthew 13:11 “Jesus replied, Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of Heaven has been given to you, but not to them.”  If you do not want to be one of “them” then please open your heart and read on. The Lord has released some keys to help us avoid being one of “them.”

‘I urge all believers to patiently read this and cry out to God for an open heart. Many that do not open their hearts are going to walk away from Jesus in the years ahead. Believers need to open their hearts to God’s ways and truth, instead of long-held beliefs, that we will soon find are not in the scripture at all. I will present several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture. This is to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation. Jesus is asking some hard questions to this generation and presenting hard truths that most are not ready for, this word will help people prepare….’

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #2 – 50 years-apart testimonies meet at John’s Gospel!

PREFACE: Again, what I wrote on a Wednesday got confirmed within hours! (Previous)

After drafting this yesterday afternoon, I was ‘God-smacked’ and undone upon hearing a young man of 22 years expressing similar sentiments about the Church as I had at that age and earlier. And upon my reading out my references to scripture, he stunned me by saying the Lord’s been drawing his attention to the verses that strongly affected me!  Having graduated from Bible college, he’s about to plant a new church in London and apply that scripture; whereas over 50 years ago I got led astray through a personal perception. Today’s young apostolic church-planter is the son of the leader whom I’d already mentioned in the opening sentence below!!  Praise You Lord for such God-incidence – awesome!

Entitled ‘The importance of holy mysteries to Christian discipleship and prophecy,’ I didn’t anticipate this draft’s prophetic nature and later realised it’s better published in two parts under a fresh title.

Earlier this year a prophetic leader of new church had a picture for me during a ‘refresh’ coffee morning. Seeing a megaphone turn into a laser, he said it’s time for my blogging to move from ‘broad-brush’ coverage to a narrower, more incisive focus.  Hence, the fewer re-blogs of others’ prophecies unless they’re related to what I already know or can sense (thus confirmations or validations as ‘jigsaw pieces’ and ‘God-incidences’), or else are of especial significance.

Therefore as done recently, my personally-related introductions to re-blogs of others’ prophetic material. The next, by Thomas Harry, is directly relevant to my journey and  necessitates this full introductory blog to prepare our understanding of what Jesus is telling today’s Church.  As in #1, this comes with Thomas’ blessing for my action.

THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM

First and foremost, we need to consider what ‘mystery’ means in the Word of God:

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

The New Spirit-Filled Study Bible provides this definition:

‘Mystery’, Greek ‘musterion’ (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’

Jesus’ meaning of ‘mysteries’ is implicit in Apostle Paul’s writing to the church in Corinth on the western side of the isthmus between mainland Greece and the Peloponnese peninsular:

‘Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God‘ (1Cor 4:1)…‘And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing’ (1Cor 13.2)…’For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.’ (1 Cor 14.2)

References to ‘mystery’ appear nearly two dozen times, again mainly by Paul plus a few in The Apocalypse.  BUT note there are no references to either variant of the word in the Old Testament – so it appears this reference and related teaching were reserved only for new revelations that Jesus brought from our heavenly Father and God.

Moreover, that differential between Testaments emphasises a divine origin of especially reserved knowledge and revelation compared to that claimed for the supposed mystery schools of pagan religions, like those of ancient Egypt.

In my humble opinion, the meaning of ‘holy mystery’ is little understood and appreciated – perhaps even by those well-grounded in scripture – but is slowly improving as a result of the increasing interest in the prophetic.

As Biblical and anointed modern prophecy are dovetailing in these End-times, that state of awareness needs to change up a gear or two. Thus, all earnest followers of Jesus need to dive deeper into His living waters to be immersed in His mysteries.

Yet we do need to be wise and careful, and learning of the error in my own searching for those mysteries before I was blessed to be born-again may be a warning and help.

A PRE-CHRISTIAN JOURNEY

Readers of the two recent postings on the ‘God-incidental’ 21st anniversary of the solar eclipse of 1999 and ‘GPS #50’ on Luke 21 and the ‘Bridge over The Pond’ may recall the reference to my mother’s Catholic Sunday Missal.

When I was a youngster she’d take me to Sunday mass, yet I wasn’t sent to a Catholic school. The Latin liturgy was rather a bore but I began to pay attention to the readings in English and how they related to the Sunday’s picture in the Missal.

[NB: Next 2 paragraphs were read aloud to the young church-planter – Preface refers]

I recall thinking it must have been awesome to have been around Jesus and seen all He said and did. Also, two especially significant verses heard or read in mother’s book got embedded into my brain and, although buried in the unconscious, never got overwritten.

One was of Jesus telling his disciples they’d do greater works than He was doing! The other was by one of His closest followers and who surmised at the close of his Gospel account:If everything He’d done was written down there wouldn’t be enough room in the world to contain the books!’  (John 14:12 and 21:25)

In view of that eye-witness account and modern churches’ failure in the greater works, plus misrepresentation of their founder, I became convinced a lot of what Jesus taught had been lost, or even suppressed, by the early church. The truth must be out there somewhere, and so I decided to investigate and search it out for myself.

Next, having learned about the Western esoteric tradition, I was attracted at 21 years of age to a society that published books on the ‘mystical life’ and ‘secret doctrines’ of Jesus, thus claiming He was one of many perfected ‘masters’! Their claims were based upon Jesus introducing His disciples to the ‘mysteries’ – including reincarnation (Elijah coming as John the Baptist). Supposedly, these secret teachings continued down through the centuries in the practice of Gnosticism, the early Church’s great opponent that attracted false teachers and prophets. Gnostics claimed their initiation into the ‘mysteries’ brought them special revelations and wisdom, thereby setting them above ordinary followers of Jesus, as well as engendering all sorts of heretical theologies.

So, as a young man I got enticed and ensnared in the devil’s domain but only through the grace of Jesus Christ’s personal intervention was I brought into His Kingdom. He put me in a church that gave me a good grounding in scripture and pointing me in the right for receiving deliverance from the evil one. That’s another story, as outlined in Jesus Freed Me!

Having been immersed in that non-Christian, esoteric knowledge, I can attest that the difference between that deceptive discipline and holy revelations from the Lord is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

Born-again Christians have a personal, direct relationship with Jesus and so we can  hear His voice ourselves, and receive and operate in gifts from the Holy Spirit. Even so, all we perceive from Father, Son and Holy Spirit is to be weighed and tested against the plumb-line of the scriptures.

In the next post (scheduled for tomorrow) Revd Thomas Harry, senior leader of Falkirk Full Gospel Church, brings anointed teaching on “several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture…to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation….”

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #1 – maths in scripture!

Having seen another profound paper from pastor Thomas Harry I’m led to precede my introduction to it by reminding ourselves of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. (It is purely for information but I thank those who may wish to read the links.) Thomas kindly responded to my intention with,

“Your style of Intro is perfect and encourages people so I am full of support for it, rather than just a link. I enjoyed the link on mysteries, also was a blessing.”

A MATHEMATICAL GOD-INCIDENCE

Four years ago a series of overviews on the growing rapprochement between science and scripture were featured on this blog. It included a particularly peculiar ‘coincidence’ between my Summer-time reading and a physicist’s blog entitled Pure, Breathtaking Mathematical Beauty, which centred around ‘The Euler Identity’. What’s amazing is I’d already read how that same formula is hidden within the Hebrew and Greek of the first verses of the first chapters of Genesis and of the Gospel by John!

Therefore, I blogged on this news in Astonishing Mathematics; the conjunction between Creation, Gospel and Science? and introduced ‘Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John’ by Jonathan Hill. A continuation was posted after re-blogging Joanne Rolston’s Number 153, Signs & Symbols (whom Jesus personally encouraged to venture into His mathematics!) and more details in A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed.

That post also considered the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain – which is rather trite. When using that term, even eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality, as quoted and discussed in that posting.

That blog continued by quoting Jesus on holy mysteries, as at Matthew 13, which we’ll revisit in ‘God-incidence #2’.

It’s time to penetrate the Darkness – Wanda Alger

This awesome word instantly reminds me of a dread dream of many decades ago that confronted me when I was trapped in the New Age movement. Unlike the fallen entity that masquerades as an angel of light behind which devouring darkness exists, this special vision put a holy fear within me in which I supra-naturally sensed the truth, as in 2 Samuel 22 (my number once again!). May you too be mightily blessed:

Yes, we are experiencing a “gross darkness” that is covering the earth. We are all feeling the effects of ongoing storms of mayhem, dark clouds of corruption, and the shifting shadows of subversion. But, lest you think the darkness is only an indication of the devil’s presence, remember there is One Greater who alone is…

Midnight news confirms yesterday’s blog on Covid-19 effects

This news will come as no surprise to those who read my blog of yesterday in which I give more details of a report cited by William Koenig that foresees post-Covid debility. Naturally, I take no delight whatsoever in getting a ‘bull’s eye’ on this occasion!  So please take note:

Click image to read article in full

In the first minute of today a report reflecting my blog’s content was published by the Telegraph. Their science editor Sarah Knapton begins her report as follows:

“Long Covid” is genuine and leaves patients suffering debilitating symptoms for many months after their recovery from coronavirus, experts have confirmed.  Campaign groups supporting survivors of the virus have previously warned that doctors are dismissing ongoing problems or misdiagnosing the ongoing effects of Covid-19 as chronic fatigue syndrome.

‘But in the first study to show a conclusive pattern, researchers at North Bristol NHS Trust found that three quarters of virus patients treated at Bristol’s Southmead Hospital were still experiencing problems three months later. Symptoms included breathlessness, excessive fatigue and muscle aches, leaving people struggling to wash, dress and return to work.

‘Dr David Arnold, of North Bristol NHS Trust, said: “This research helps to describe what many coronavirus patients have been telling us – they are still breathless, tired, and not sleeping well months after admission.” 

The medical report in Koenig’s Eye View from the White House published 10th July states specifically (emphases mine):

‘..we will have residual side-effects and most likely more to come because we are asking our bodies to deal with an issue they have not faced before in all of humanity. No one is prepared for this. Not even those who most likely sequenced this virus know or understand the residual effects nor will they with the next Covid-20…’

PERSONAL NOTE

Once again, timing proves extraordinary and – even in perversity – demonstrates this is all part of the Lord’s ‘invisible jigsaw’. Being Thursday, today would be devoted primarily to blogging, and my looser schedule for summer-time means items don’t get written or replied to until free-time becomes available. I’d laid aside, therefore, any intention of re-publishing Stephen Mosher’s article on professor Tritto’s denunciations. News of Matt Hancock’s announcement, however, needed attention and required addition of Mosher’s relevant item.

It just so happens (!!) that we swapped our Wed and Thurs around for a coffee morning for a friend. AND it just so happens the weather co-operated too, because this morning was fine and sunny for sitting in the garden, whereas all yesterday was heavy rain and only fit for my being indoors. HENCE, I was able to see that news item and write two blogs on it and the related material – as here and then here!!!

Therefore, had our personal schedule not been re-arranged and the weather complied with both days’ activities, then yesterday’s blog would not have given a relevant lead-in to the article Sarah Knapton was about to write, if not already writing!

AND neither you nor I would be any the wiser over any of this….so ‘Thank You, Lord’!

Gov’t announcement hints at real cause of Covid-19 chaos (F/P #121.10.5)

Astute readers of my blogs will have realised the inference behind those on covid-19 as a man-made virus; especially when reading extracts from a letter sent to editor William Koenig at his desk in the White House, as cited in 3rd Validation.  Not having quoted the penultimate paragraph of that medic’s report in full, we now need to consider their well-researched, professional opinion:

‘The question is this: How do our bodies react “normally” to an abnormal bio-engineered virus? The answer . . . they don’t! Nor should they. This is not something mankind has dealt with over the entire world until now. Of course, we will have residual side-effects and most likely more to come because we are asking our bodies to deal with an issue they have not faced before in all of humanity. No one is prepared for this. Not even those who most likely sequenced this virus know or understand the residual effects nor will they with the next Covid-20, which we think will peak late September/early October 2020 and be even more virulent…’

Hence, governmental confusion and incompetence whilst endeavouring to protect citizens’ health in the best way possible! In other words, they’re trying to deal with a biological weapon. Hopefully, the beneficial outcome will be for nations to agree on the world-wide banning of biological weapons..

Therefore, at lunch-time yesterday I took particular notice of news of an announcement by the Health Secretary, viz:

Daily Telegraph Newsfeed Tuesday 18th August 2020


For the sake of clarity and in event of image not being legible, here’s the important content (emphases mine):  ‘…Speaking at the Policy Exchange think tank, Mr Hancock said: “Today, I am announcing that we are forming a new organisation, the National Institute for Health Protection

“The National Institute for Health Protection will have a single and relentless mission to protect people from external threats to this country’s health such as biological weapons, pandemics and of course infectious diseases of all kinds.”

“It will combine our world-class talent and science infrastructure with the growing response capabilities of NHS Test and Trace and the sophisticated analytic capability we are building in the Joint Biosecurity Centre.”

That is, we are no longer on the edge of biological warfare but now dealing with its application – even if accidentally released, as in this global pandemic. 

So, just perhaps, after failing to learn the lessons from Exercise Cygnus four years ago, the government has decided to hint at the true nature of this untamable viral beast?

4th validation of “It’s man-made” coronavirus – WABT’s President (F/P #121.10-4 & #10.15)

Published Monday 10th August by LifeSiteNews, an article by Steven W. Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute, linked below brings the 4th validation of the word I heard from the Lord when asking which of several possibilities and prophecies is the real cause of the coronavirus-19 pandemic. This piece begins:

“It will not be possible for the Dr. Fauci’s of the world to dismiss Professor Giuseppe Tritto as a crank. Not only is he an internationally known expert in biotechnology and nanotechnology who has had a stellar academic career, but he is also the president of the World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies (WABT), an institution founded under the aegis of UNESCO in 1997.

“In other words, he is a man of considerable stature in the global scientific community. Equally important, one of the goals of WABT is to analyze the effect of biotechnologies—like genetic engineering—on humanity.

“In his new book, this world-class scientist does exactly that. And what he says is that the China Virus definitely wasn’t a freak of nature that happened to cross the species barrier from bat to man. It was genetically engineered in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s P4 (high-containment) lab in a program supervised by the Chinese military….”

Click to read Steven Mosher’s account of Prof Tritto’s incisive expose – alarmingly, he concludes:

“In other words, by withholding from the world the original genetic code of the China Virus that it created, the Chinese Communist Party is ensuring that no completely effective vaccine will ever be developed by the West.

“In other words, China continues to lie, and people continue to die. “

Thus, in this account we find two prophetic words being fulfilled;
  1. Exposure of more lies from China (original #10 – 2016)
  2. Man-made nature of this coronavirus (original #162 – 2020).

The crumbling of mountains is not devil’s doing (but the Lord’s) – Wanda Alger

Only having time to publish a covering note and link to the video of yesterday morning’s insights from Dr Sharon Stone and Emma Stark – AND affected by inexplicable power cut in our house – I didn’t get around to watching them until much later in the day.

Then in came a notification of the latest from Wanda Alger that not only supports their prophetical wisdom but also tells of a vision that speaks straight into an open vision of Britain being ripped open by the emerging Rock of Christ that startled me in 2004 (and which Dr Stone later confirmed). Now, Wanda brings more details and explanation from the Lord of what He’s doing in today’s great Shaking:

“…I continued to see this crumbling mountain, but then saw the true source of the shaking. The reason things are falling apart is not because the devil is at work. No – it’s because the saints of God are at work! For underneath this crumbling mountain was emerging ANOTHER MOUNTAIN. It was the Mountain of the House of the Lord that was rising up from the underground causing the whole earth to shake and quake!

“The FOUNDATIONS of the earth have been literally shifting as this mountain of the Lord has been moving and gaining momentum with great power, now breaking through the earth’s surface to displace everything in its way….”

Upon her sharing this with a group of prophetic intercessors she reports one told of having been, “awoken out of a sound sleep last week by the audible voice of the Lord calling his name. He said it startled him and the Lord asked him if he was listening. He said he was! Then the Lord said, “Just as I startled you out of a sound sleep, so I am about to STARTLE THE CHURCH FROM THEIR SLUMBER!” The Lord is about to send supernatural shock waves that will shake UNBELIEF that is rampant in the Church…”

I’m so grateful to read a confirmation of what happened whilst I was awake early on 18th July and getting a strong urge from the Lord to blog: “WAKE UP CHURCH!” 

NOW, therefore, read Wanda’s item in full by clicking > THE MOUNTAINS THAT ARE CRUMBLING ARE NOT THE DEVIL’S DOING

Let me reiterate the scripture in Hebrews 12 I was given ‘out-of-the blue’ and startled me at a home group over twenty years ago (emphases mine):

22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,  24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Hear the Heavenly Voice

25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more will I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire!

Insights upon current chaos from Dr Sharon Stone and Emma Stark

 

Rarely do I get around to watching video’s but took note of a notification of his morning’s conversation hosted by Emma Stark of the Glasgow Prophecy Centre with Dr Sharon Stone, both internationally recognised prophets. I thought it was for a midday broadcast when I could be free, but after a power-cut to our domestic supply got quickly resolved, I was pleased to find a video was recorded and can be linked on this blog.

Their discussion focuses upon the demonic havoc unleashed upon humanity and brings in-depth scriptural and practical instruction for the Church on discerning and dealing with the wiles of the enemy of God’s people.

Therefore, these exceptionally encouraging insights are highly recommended for readers who’ve ‘awoken’ (as urged in my appeal based upon what I heard from – and tested – from the Lord)!

Astonishing! Previous post gets immediate double-confirmation!! (Global Prophecy Signal #50)

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

In republishing Ben Kay’s email in the previous post I couldn’t but conclude, “The Lord is getting our attention – has he got yours?” I wasn’t being flippant, simply stressing it’s well to give our serious consideration to what Ben had not planned on writing!

But I wasn’t prepared for the Lord immediately getting on my caseand doubly so!

It was about a geographical-cum-spiritual aspect I’d sensed – together with a totally unexpected reference by a reader to a hidden, textual attribute behind my reacting to and promoting Ben’s encouragement.

11.8.1999 SOLAR ECLIPSE, THE ‘MAYFLOWER’ and BRIDGE o’r POND

Ben states the total solar eclipse of 11th August 1999, “started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2,000 km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall…”

However, in watching the animated video of its passage and carefully noting the origin and path of the small dot representing the totality of eclipse, I was reminded of a concept I’d started blogging about 44 (11 x 4) months ago – Bridge over ‘The Pond’ – ie. an imaginary, supra-natural bridge linking Britain with North America used by Holy Spirit for delivering the same, or similar, teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the North Atlantic ocean on the same, or next, day.

That sudden beginning of the ‘invisible’ moon’s effect upon the sun during daytime hours brings a brief glimpse into Isiaah 13:10…

For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not give their light;
The sun will be darkened in its going forth,
And the moon will not cause its light to shine.

Let’s take a closer look and analysis of that day’s event, courtesy of Google Maps

NASA/Goddard Flight Centre describes its path: ‘The last total solar eclipse of the 20th century begins in the North Atlantic about 300 km (190 ml) south of Nova Scotia where the Moon’s umbral shadow first touches down on Earth at 09:30:57 UT. Along the sunrise terminator, the maximum duration is a mere 47 seconds as seen from the center of the narrow 49 kilometers-wide path. No major landfall occurs for the first forty minutes as the shadow sweeps across the North Atlantic. The umbra finally reaches the Isles of Scilly off the southwestern coast of England at 10:10 UT (Figure 6 – below)

At this locale, it is already mid-morning with the Sun 45° above the eastern horizon… One minute later (10:11 UT), the umbra arrives along the shores of the Cornwall Peninsula. In the following four minutes, the shadow skirts the southern coast giving eager observers a brief taste of totality. Plymouth, the largest English city in the path, is north of center line and witnesses a total phase lasting 1 minute 39 seconds. London misses the total phase but experiences partiality…By 10:16 UT, the umbra leaves England as it quickly traverses the English Channel…Not since 1961 has the Moon cast its dark shadow upon central Europe…’ (emphases added)

I recall watching it from central Reading, noting the eerie effect of diminished daylight, but now I’m intrigued that the linked illustration could mirror the construction plan of a massive bridge – like Evgeni Denev’s ‘Endless Bridge’ shown above, the three circles shown in Fig 6 representing a bridge’s columnar piers.

North America’s New England and ‘New Scotland’ – all ‘Newly-Found-Land’

The ‘Mayflower’ was the English galleon that transported the first Puritans, known today as the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’, in 1620 from Plymouth (famous for its role in the sighting and defeat of the Spanish Armada) over the Atlantic to the New World. They were Bible-believing, ‘non-conformist’ Christians seeking religious freedom and tolerance far away from both Catholic and Protestant Europe in our American colonies. That event was the birth of a strong Christian bond that has grown between the UK and USA, despite all the differences in church-state relationships and theological emphases.

After a gruelling 10 weeks at sea, the Mayflower’s 102 passengers and crew of about 30 reached America, dropping anchor near the tip of Cape Cod on November 11, 1620. (NB. double number 11 in that arrival date: 11th day of 11th month, 400 years ago!! So maybe it’s of significance (see Footnote 2 of previous post)?

After hitting the ‘publish’ button for the previous post at 17:30 on Tuesday, I visited the post to hit ‘share Facebook’ button and thereby put it on my personal profile.

I was so amazed to note a response got flagged up within minutes, and upon reading the comment I got well and truly ‘God-smacked!’ It was directly related to what I’d sensed! AND from over the ‘Pond’ in Nova Scotia – Maxine Phyllis writes:

“Oh, thank God you posted that. I had forgotten all about it. August 11 was also the date of my wedding thirty years ago and the number 21 has figured prominently in my life. I connect it to the archangel Michael in the book of Daniel – he had to fast 21 days before receiving a visitation from Michael. Also, I was 21 years old when I first met the Lord in a powerful encounter outdoors, after a vehicle accident in the Yukon wilderness of Canada. I was amazed that I was unharmed and simply spoke out into the air ‘God are you there?’ Immediately an answer came and hit me like a lightening bolt – “I Am”. From then until now I’ve heard Him speak to me about Michael, and how Michael is needed to deliver the Church out of the influence of Babylon. Also, it is the archangel Michael who overcomes the devil himself along with the word of our testimonies from those who didn’t shrink back from death (and I would be one). Hallelujah for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns!!”

Some minutes later Maxine commented along similar lines on the actual post itself. BUT what she – and other readers – did not know was her references to Archangel Michael are not only directly relevant but also validate Ben and my personal references to Luke 21:28!

How? Why? Nowhere within Luke’s record of Jesus’ prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem as well as End-time events is there any reference to angelic involvement. But now look fully at my dear mother’s Sunday Missal; of which page 67 only is shown at the close of the previous post for its highlit verse is the reason I immediately reacted to Ben’s quoting Luke 21:28 > >

The preceding page 66 is headed by Pope Leo XIII’s prayer to Michael the Archangel penned after a dread vision of God and satan on 13th October 1884 and the future of the Church. (This page completed the whole liturgy with Latin on left-hand-pages and English on right. Thenceforth, pages show Sundays sequentially in the liturgical year with illustration of the theme of each mass followed by relevant scriptures, as shown.)

NOW BELIEVE ME – I’m hurrying to finish this off for an early start to our weekend but THAT number 66 was also mentioned by Jonathan Hill when writing about number 11, (Footnote 2 of previous refers). Please understand that his following notes are NOT directly related to my above remarks and any anecdotal coincidence or meanings. His knowledge of Hebrew numbers is related purely to the scriptures, as developed in his two seminal books. In this week’s email referred to earlier, Jonathan writes:

“For a deeper understanding of these events, we need to know the biblical meaning of two numbers, the number ‘666’ which is associated with the final anti-Christ in Revelation 13:18 and the number ‘66’ – a less known biblical number. As it happens, the number ‘66’ is associated with ‘forerunner’ anti-Christs of 1 John 2:18 because of the Old Testament character Absalom who is a strong type of the final anti-Christ (because he usurped David’s throne). Absalom is first mentioned in the Bible in 2 Samuel 3:3 and this verse has a numerical value of 666 (Ordinal method). Moreover, the Hebrew name of ‘Absalom’, in this same verse, has a numerical value of ‘66’ Another important reference to ‘66’ in scripture is in 1 John 2:18 where the Greek words ‘even now’, as an adverbial phrase of time (regarding forerunner anti-Christs rising), have a numerical value of ‘66’ (και [20] νυν [46]).

“…11th triangular number is ‘66’ and so ‘11’s and the number ‘66’ are biblical markers concerning events closely preceding the Millennium and forerunner anti-Christs… Two notable forerunner anti-Christs (anti-Semitics and anti-capitalists) were Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden who both died a violent death exactly 66 years apart (to the day).”

Thus, an exceptionally intriguing ‘coincidence’ of a prayer for protection on a page 66.

THE LORD’S GPS

Readers know my thoughts on the Lord using His own GPS system, or Global Prophecy Signalling system. This 50th is an excellent example because the eclipse includes the locations of a couple of recipients of His ‘message’ – Ben Kay in Plymouth, Devon, is the first recipient, joint seconds are Jonathan Hill (W Sussex) and myself (E Hants) as I was reading his email about number 11 when Ben’s arrived, and Maxine over ‘The Pond’ in Nova Scotia, Canada, is fourth.

Doesn’t it make you wonder what awesome things are coming our way from the Lord? And perhaps how the 400th Anniversary of arrival of the ‘Mayflower’ in America may be of great significance in His plans???

To Him alone be all the Glory.

PS. Within 3 weeks along came 9 signals from both sides of the ‘Pond’, as shown in Last Week’s GPS on New Church also include USA & Canada (GPS #51).

‘God-incidence’ of 11 and 21st (3×7) anniversary of solar eclipse – “Look up for your redemption draws nigh!”

Not bothering to note today’s date, my intended online priority after the days morning tasks was to respond to a reference to number 11’s meaning by Jonathan Hill in his weekend email. BUT after opening my in-tray, what then dropped in from Ben Kay in Plymouth ‘God-incidentally’ highlights ’11’!! “ACE, absolutely brill Ben”, I immediately respond in my seeking his permission to copy; and so he puts it into perspective

“Glad that this email has hit the mark. It was interesting how it came about as I had no intention to write all these things until late last night when I sensed the Lord reminding me about the eclipse and prompting me to write an encouragement. It took a few hours but managed to get it sent out this morning thankfully. I meant to be writing… but sensed this interruption to my plans last night were from the Lord so decided to go with the flow…!”

Let’s ‘get in the flow’ of what the Lord’s indicating through Ben, as told under this title from Luke 21:28 (NB 7×3:7×4):

“LOOK UP…FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH!”

Good Morning,

Normally I simply send out dates and information about prayer meetings (such as the next PRAY UK meeting on 22nd August!)

However, this is a simple encouragement to keep pressing on when you may be feeling the pressure of life… to keep on looking up when you might be feeling down…and a reminder that we are held in the palm of the One who holds the whole world in His hands.

‘…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3 vs 12-14)

Last night, I remembered that today is a special anniversary for those in Devon and Cornwall who, 21 years ago today, witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the 1999 solar eclipse.

Indeed, you may have seen the special marker that was placed near Plymouth Hoe (by the cannons on Madeira Road) to remind us of this special moment. It is in the shape of a cross on the pavement.

‘X’ marks the spot where at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of August 1999, the sun was turned to darkness and the moon turned a blood red colour above Plymouth and the surrounding region, and there followed 2 minutes of eerie darkness in the middle of the day, before the light of the sun broke through once again.

As I look back on this day with a sense of awe, I’m reminded of who it is that not only created the earth, the moon and the sun but actually brought them into alignment and scheduled this special moment at the beginning of time. For no solar eclipse randomly happens but each one was timetabled from the moment of creation.

‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”‘ (Genesis 1:14 KJV emphasis mine)

By all accounts (eg. Wikipedia’s Solar Eclipse of 11th August, 1999), this was a special eclipse. This was ‘one of the most-viewed solar eclipses in the whole of human history’ and the first that could be viewed from the UK since 1927.

As illustrated therein, the total eclipse started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2000km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall. Interestingly, the eclipse then went from here to have an impact on the rest of Europe as well as parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia…2 billion people in all!

There are many prophetic words that have been spoken about the region over the years indicating that God is about to do something special. Given that an eclipse can also be defined as an ‘over-shadowing’, perhaps God’s Spirit is brooding and getting ready to bring forth ‘fullness of life’ in this region as expressed in John 10:10’s  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.

Furthermore, perhaps the precise time and direction of the eclipse over Plymouth and the region indicates that an end-time revival of great magnitude is coming that will have an impact on multitudes throughout the nations.

But if life is tough right now, perhaps we just need to hang in there. In the natural, there is much pressure on a baby in the birthing canal just before it is born.

‘We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.’ (2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9 TLB)

God is in control, even though we may feel everything is out of control.

‘and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose’. (Romans 8 v 28)

Not all things are good…but in all things, we trust God is working things out for our good and birthing His purposes and plans in our lives.

When we’re in the thick of it, sometimes it is hard to see the bigger picture.

Perhaps this recent prophetic word from Veronika West entitled, ‘It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is Ticking‘, will serve as an encouragement to ‘look up’ at this time and keep ‘watching and praying’…

Here’s an excerpt from this relatively short word:

‘So stay watching and praying in these days, as the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow upon the threshing floor of the Nations. Listen and pay close attention! Tick, tock, tick, tock…the sound of destiny’s clock can be heard in the realm of the Spirit. Do you hear it? Are you ready? Are you aligned and rightly positioned? Are you walking in time with My Spirit?

Beloved…See! For this is a kairos time…an appointed time in the earth…a time of divine Shifting, Sifting, Scattering and Separation has surely begun…for the Nations at a divine tipping point are now being Shifted…the wheat and the tares are now being Sifted…Yes!…and the demons of hell are now being Scattered and the goats and sheep Nations are now being Separated…Watch! As the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow forth upon the Harvest fields of the Nations…Beloved, Get ready!!

This follows on from a recent dream Veronika West had in June 2020 (Hourglass of End-time Harvest).

Veronika explains, “This dream came with such an urgency of the times and the need to begin to cry out for the nations of the earth who are in the valley of decision. I believe this dream speaks to the 11th hour. A kairos time in the earth. An appointed time of the End-time Harvest!”

The details of the dream and Veronika’s interpretation take a little longer to read than the above prophetic word…but it is well worth reading and reflecting upon.

The dream concludes with the following words:

“Watch and Pray! For but a little while longer the Golden Revolving Door of The Ages and of Eternal Destiny stands open before the nations. As the days of My Grace and Mercy are poured out upon the nations, watch! For the time is here, for the 11th Hour Harvesters will herald the birthing of a new great awakening on the earth!”

Veronika’s dream reminds me of an encounter I had with God after attending a prayer meeting at Plymouth Christian Centre back in 2012. I was left with a clear sense that we’re living in the closing age of time before Jesus returns for His bride.

Read more about this ’11th hour’ encounter HERE in Why ’12am CRY’? and listen-read-watch RT Kendall explain more about ‘What is the Midnight Cry?’.

Anyhow, this has now turned out to be a much longer email than originally envisaged, so I’ll finish here with a couple of verses encouraging us to rouse to the reality of the time we are living in…

‘Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armour of light. (Romans 13 vs 11-12 AMPC)

Every blessing,

Ben Kay

RB Footnotes:
  1. I wrote Ben, “Not only does your Luke 21:28 header tie in with scripture relating to the night Jesus visited me (and thus the First Sunday of Advent, celebrating His Return – as illus. below), but also and in depth, today’s date of 11th ties in with the details of an email I want to reply to later after returning home.”
  2. Jonathan Hill, author of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, remarks in his recent email upon the Biblical meanings numbers ‘11’ and ‘12’: ‘The number ‘12’ represents the governmental perfection of Israel in the Millennium (12 tribes of Israel etc.). Number ‘11’ precedes ‘12’ and speaks of ‘anticipation’ of Millennium. As part of the Biblical Watch, ‘11’s appearing in global events/signs before the upcoming Millennium may, therefore, be part of this anticipation and signify events which closely precede the Millennium. The 11th hour warning of Armistice Day 1918 (11th hour of 11th day of 11th month) is one such sign’.’
  3. In referring to ’11’ and ’12’ Jonathan has ‘God-incidentally’ connected into Ben’s message on today’s date of 11th as 21st anniversary of the solar equinox at Plymouth – as well as into his calling at 11th hour on 7.9.2012 (see 12am Cry). (Also, 21 = 7 x 3.)
  4. And just as intriguing: I find yesterday’s total number of views on this website is two twelves, ie 1,212. MOREOVER, ‘two twelve’ was the number of my childhood home where that Visitation in 1989 was located!

CONCLUSION: THE LORD IS GETTING OUR ATTENTION – HAS HE GOT YOURS?

PS: Two ‘GPS’ confirmations were immediately received, as recounted here.

How to Look for Signs of Jesus Christ’s Return

Whilst singing the Noel Richards’ chorus “Come Lord Jesus” in a meeting, my wife was noticeably touched by the Holy Spirit and heard, “It’s sooner than you think!”. I submit, therefore, the importance of revisiting this blog’s strap-line ‘Looking for signs of Jesus’ return‘ and of being sure we really do know ‘how to look’ for Jesus’ Second Coming.
