Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:5-8 NKJV BibleGateway)
Would you take a few moments with me to consider the significance of the associated two posts issued this day last week? Hopefully, it will provide an insight into how I utilise the resources of extensive materials and insufficient time: hence the above scripture.
Since the weekend before last I’d intended that conjoined post to be the main item for blogging. You may recall my then telling (ON CUE…) how that plan got put on hold upon my waking up and being prompted to blog on what I’d read in November on QAnon and Digital Conspiracy – as though the Lord dropped it into my mind. Then, along with a few related items and news reports, my plan got postponed longer than expected. Even so, the good Lord WAS in the timing. Those few days delay enabled what I wanted to do to get properly and fully completed. I was left in awe!
You see, I’d long been wondering where my ongoing coverage of the US election was heading, and when it would end…presumably the day of Biden or Trump’s inauguration.
That Thursday was most hectic but at last I sensed a “well done” from Father and over the weekend mulled it over.
In my mind’s eye I perceived two months’ blogs of one sort or another fitting snugly as pieces in a completed ‘100-piece US Election Jigsaw’ laid down before the Lord. It’s as though invisible pieces manifested and became a visible, albeit digital, jigsaw.
“Now that’s done Lord, what’s the next one? IS there one?”
In having completed this jigsaw on that subject, I got no sense of anything other than that aspect of the election has drawn to a close and it’s going into a new, different phase. I sensed nothing beyond the jigsaw and table other than a distinct darkness. Sure enough, an intercessor friend was writing to me along similar lines and which is divulged in the next blog.
Even looking at that email now I get a distinct sense of ‘deja-vu’ confirming his note is about what’s decreed in the Lord’s plans for America…
MY MOTIVATION & MODUS OPERANDI
MY PRIME MOTIVE was and still is, to simply watch and report events as they unfold for the purpose of monitoring the fulfillment – or not – of prophecies about Donald Trump staying in office for a second term. NB: although I’d blogged words and visions reported by Veronika West, Abel Praise and Wanda Alger, I’m not familiar with others.
As a born-again Christian I dislike – and it’s definitely not my purpose to blog on – politics, especially American variety, and particularly not to such a continual extent that prophecy gets relegated almost out of the frame! (This temporary focus is very small as the 100 election posts are only 0.033% of my total output of 2,908 posts and 98 static pages.)
Truly, it felt compulsive as though I was being driven – but last Thursday it all became so obvious that it was in the Lord’s will. The picture became clearer as the final piece of a jigsaw puzzle fell into place. I was struck byi the number of this topic’s posts being the same as a 10 x10 size jigsaw, as told herein. Moreover, I realised this concept got verified by the last ‘piece’ matching part of the ‘picture’ depicted in the very ‘first corner’, where I’d unwittingly started to lay down a row of border pieces, as told in that post’s second part.
After the first ten blogs on the US Election’s NOT Over I looked towards drawing the series to a close, but I just couldn’t – I really got pushed – not ‘nudged’ onward. Later, I thought 40 would be fine, let’s end it there.
To ensure all readers’ clarity of understanding of my motive for blogging on US politics let me quote a couple of correspondents whose remarks admirably serve that aim.:
One of my regulars, a church leader, was concerned about the direction and content of my blogging and kindly took time to email me – funnily enough whilst I was finishing off those two connected posts! I trust they may have answered to some extent but, as she drew my attention to valid points which may have occurred to others then I will address them:
- Press updates seem to come from very limited sources…There are often some compelling bits of extra information that are overlooked. That doesn’t make the information…wrong of course, but perhaps too one sided – ANS: I enjoy research but at present, I don’t have luxury of time for that and give fuller coverage – same goes for reviewing and analysing prophecies. For ease of working, I prefer to use WordPress’ re-blogging facility as this saves time copy-pasting. In following up on US election I found The Marshall Report refers to and quotes those close to Sidney Powell et al, and is strong on scripture. Although her zeal is hard-hitting, Dianne’s coverage is extensive within a narrow focus.
- It is difficult to see how the danger of confirmation-bias has been avoided by using such a small number of reporters – ANS: I’m aware of possibility, but I prefer to tend toward taking the scientific, impartial observation and collection of facts AND to be directed according to John 3:8.
My gifting is that of discerning and connecting prophetical dots, which is why I often report upon them as God-incidences, God’s GPS and pieces of His invisible jigsaw.
Thus, it is an application of my main discipleship verses, as quoted above. Another person with whom I’d been in discussion a couple of years ago about prophecies on Brexit also took up their valuable time to message me at length. After watching some video commentaries by American church leaders, prophets as well as non-Christians he’s most uneasy over their “shockingly poor demonstrations” of leadership.
I agree “we’re supposed to be speaking truth, with credibility and peace” and appreciate his thinking these folk and their prophecies are blind speculation with a political directive. Hence, his concern over some of my postings. So I responded,
“I know a lot of US church grates here, but as my blog often covers what I believe the Lord is drawing to my attention (and confirming a great deal – and direct to my wife, who’s got very little interest in this!), then I have little option but to follow per John 3:8.”
This puzzled my friend, as it may you too. He couldn’t understand why John 3 has any relevance to our conversation, because “Holy Spirit is subject only to Father God”.
“It does fit into our chat as verses 5-8 explain not only how Jesus was led but also the best way we mere mortals are to live. That is, by being born-again spiritually of the Holy Spirit and being blown by His holy wind in the direction He knows best for each of us. For me I get interior changes of thought and strong nudges as though poked in my ribs….”
I do hope this may clear up any queries you may have on my blogging, but if not please drop me a line and I’ll reply as soon as practicable.
