“GOD IS CALLING A BATTLE-WORN NATION TO NAIL THEIR COLOURS TO THE MAST….A BATTLE-CRY OF NO SURRENDER,..NO RETREAT”…; TRUMP WILL BE DRIVEN LIKE A SHARP PEG INTO A FIRM PLACE…!!
So on the 28th of August 2021, 21 days after the Vision on the drowning man (7th August 2021) The LORD showed me something amazing concerning President Donald J. Trump and the Nation.
While in my time praying, I was asking The Holy Spirit to give me a specific prayer strategy for The Nation of America in this hour.
I would usually pray this way, but that morning it felt a lot more poignant somehow that I was not to pray in a generalised way, but to seek Him for a “Now” prayer-strategy.
Well, not even a minute into prayer, when I was shown President Trump in a powerful Vision, I saw him as a sharply pointed silver nail in The Right Hand of God, and he was being firmly driven/ hammered into the wooden remnants of the mast on a battle-worn Ship that was sailing on the high seas.
The ship looked to be almost surrounded, hemmed in on every side by opposing ships. I could see the flags of different nations fluttering high on the masts of the other ships, but the battle-worn Ship that I was shown, was The Nation of America.
In the vision I saw that the main mast of the Ship that would have held and carried the main sails, had been targeted by enemy ships and the mast had been badly hit. Hence, the Ship looked in great trouble and in sure danger of being sunk, as its main sails were no longer flying and bringing movement, power and acceleration to the ship.
Looking at the masts of the other ships, I saw that the flag/ colours of that Nation had been raised to the top of the main mast and that the raised flag was an indication that the Ship was still in the battle.
But as I looked and looked again at the Ship that was shown to me as The Nation of America, I saw that their flag/colours were no longer flying, which would indicate the Ship had surrendered to its enemies.
This immediately troubled me, and as I began to cry out to The LORD, suddenly I saw The Right Hand of God come down and with a silver nail in His Hand, I watched as He Nailed the flag/colours of the Nation to the broken wooden remnants of that battle-worn Ship which was The Nation of America.
Then I heard The Father say, ”America, watch and listen, for now I AM calling this battle-worn Nation to nail their colours to the mast, and I say to My Righteous Remnant, to My Mighty Warriors, do not be afraid, but stand firm and you shall see The Salvation of The LORD, which I will accomplish for you this day.
For the enemies you see today, you will never see again! So I say to you again, “Fear not!” For even though a fierce battle is raging for the Destiny and Birthright of of this Nation, I AM now putting within you a battle-cry of “No Surrender! No retreat!”
Watch! As My Righteous Right Hand now moves in the coming days to drive a nail of triumph through the head of your enemy”
( Please also seer HKP Word “An Urgent Word for The U.S.A. — For Trump will be driven like a Tent Peg through the enemy’s head!“ )
After I heard those Words, The Spirit of Revelation quickened to me, Isaiah 22:23 concerning Trump,
”I will drive him like a peg into a firm place; he will become a seat of honor for the house of his father”…
As I read those Words, suddenly I was shown a powerful prophetic timeline into the year 2022-23… ( I can’t share fully on that yet!)
God says sorry to Trump!
After reading through that Word again, I saw again the nail — which was Trump being driven again into the remnants of that battle-worn ship — and I heard something incredible. I heard God say sorry to President Trump!
This is what I heard, ”To My Anointed Trump, I say to you sorry, sorry that the pounding of My Hammer of Justice and Truth as has had to come down hard upon your head and upon the heads of My Righteous Remnant in this Nation.
But know this, for even in the midst of the pounding of My Hammer of Justice and Righteousness, I have hardened you to difficulty and I have sharpened your forehead like flint!
Now watch, as I shall take you up in My Righteous Right Hand and in the strength and power of My strong Arm I shall drive you like nail!
Yes! Like a sharp Tent Peg through the head of My enemies!”
Then I was shown for a third time, the nail being driven into the wooden Remnants of that battle-worn Ship and I heard these Words, “Watch, for I have nailed Triumph and Victory to My Righteous Remnant and they shall overcome, by My Spirit!”
After hearing those Words, with so much still swirling in The Spirit, I gave it a day or so to meditate and pray further, and the phrase “nail your colours to the mast” just would not leave me.
In fact I was woken a few times in the night with those words echoing loudly in my spirit.
The next day, I felt led to go on a word or phrase search and the background of phrases etc.. Well, I was blown away! Not only did what I read absolutely blow me away, but the prophetic parallels were astonishing and confirmed everything I saw in the Vision.
Look at the history… So check this out. What’s the origin of the phrase ‘nail your colours to the mast’?
In 17th Century, nautical battles colours (flags) were struck (lowered) as a mark of submission. It was also the custom in naval warfare to direct one’s cannon fire at the opponent’s ship’s mast, thus disabling it.
If all of a ship’s masts were broken, the Captain usually had no alternative, but to surrender. If the captain decided to fight on, this was marked by hoisting the colours on the remnants of the ship’s rigging. That is, by ‘nailing his colours to the mast’.
The English fleet was led by the Venerable, the flagship of Admiral Adam Duncan.
The battle didn’t initially go well for the English. The mainmast of Duncan’s vessel was struck and the Admiral’s blue squadronal standard was brought down.
This could have been interpreted by the rest of the fleet as meaning that Duncan had surrendered.
Step forward, horny-handed son of the sea and subsequent national hero, Jack Crawford. Crawford climbed what was left of the mast with the standard and nailed it back where it was visible to the rest of the fleet.
This act proved crucial in the battle and Duncan’s forces were eventually victorious.
Some historians believe that the victory at Camperdown proved to be the end of the dominance of the Dutch at sea and the beginning of the period in which ‘Britannia ruled the waves’.
Crawford returned home to Sunderland to a hero’s welcome.
The stalwart reputation of English seamen soon became part of the national consciousness.
An address to The House of Commons by the playwright Richard Sheridan was reported in the Edinburgh Advertiser in January 1801: “I have no hesitation in saying that the maritime law is the charter of our existence, the banner under which we all should rally; it is the flag which, imitating the example of our gallant seamen, we should nail to the mast of the nation, and go down with the vessel rather than strike it!”
The first use of the precise expression ‘nail your colours to the mast’ that I have found is from the English newspaper, The Hereford Journal, August 1807.
This reported a naval engagement between British and American ships in which the us Captain surrendered without a fight, much to the disgust of his military superiors: “You [Commodore James Barron] ought to have nailed your colours to the mast, and have fought whilst a timber remained on your ship.”
Significance of the (number 1546) – the number of days between the time of when the first Word was given on Trump and the Tent Peg and this Word on nailing the colours to the mast, 4 June 2017 to 28 August 2021 = 1546 days:… ”to lighten to the load of the ship to stop it from sinking”…
As I read the background to that phrase, I felt the anointing so strong upon me, and immediately The Holy Spirit quickened to me the date of the first word I received about Trump and the Tent Peg — 4th of June 2017 — and the date I received the Word about the battle-worn Ship and nailing the colours to the mast — 28th August 2021 — and I worked out the number of days to be,…’1546 days’
Now as I looked up that number in the Strong’s Greek concordance, it was powerfully significant, pointing yet again to what I was being shown in the Vision.
Strong’s number: G1546
Greek base word: ἐκβολή
Usage: + to lighten the ship
Definition: ejection, I.E., (specially) a throwing overboard of the cargo.
Detailed definition: A casting out. The throwing overboard of goods and lading whereby sailors lighten a ship in a storm to keep her from sinking.
This resonated powerfully.
- What is God calling The Nation of America to throw over board? That which had weighed it down in the midst of the storm.
- What is God calling the nation to relinquish and let go of?
- What cargo must go that will lighten the load and prevent the ship from sinking?
Only recently I shared a powerful word on The Courtroom of Heaven and the only weight that will shift The Scales… ”True Repentance”…
I was shown parallels powerfully with the above Word and verses (vs; 18/38) speak specifically to cargo being thrown overboard to lighten the heavy load,… to prevent the ship from sinking!
As I began to read through this powerful chapter, I was taken back into the vision by The Spirit of Revelation, where I saw a mighty Warring Archangel of The LORD standing over the battle-worn Ship/ Nation, and as I looked at The Archangel of The LORD, I saw that the Angel was standing with his right foot upon the land and his left foot upon the waters of the seas, and the Angel was standing in the midst of a mighty Whirlwind, and the winds of the Whirlwind looked like a multi-coloured robe/ coat of pure radiant Light that fully clothed the Archangel of The LORD.
And as I looked and looked again, suddenly I heard The Archangel of The LORD speak over the nation, ”Do not be afraid,…for I come to you clothed in The Spirit and Power of Elijah to equip and empower you, that you may overcome in Triumph and great Victory!”
As I heard those Words, I watched as the mighty winds of the multi-coloured Whirlwind began to blow forth upon the battle-worn Ship which was the Nation, and I saw the flag/ colours of the Nation that had been nailed to the broken remnants of the Ship, begin to move and flutter in the strong winds.
I watched as the mighty winds of the Whirlwind pushed the battle-worn Ship fast forwards with great Power and Acceleration towards the land, and I heard these Words, “The mighty Winds of My Seven Spirits shall blow forth upon this battle-worn Nation! Watch, for The Spirit and Power of Elijah now comes to Revive, to Restore and to Reform a prodigal Nation back to its true Identity and Kingdom Authority in the Nations of the earth!”
See below Acts 27. I encourage you to read the chapter there are powerful prophetic parallels that run through the whole chapter that demand a careful and prayerful response in this hour!
When the creator of the heavens and the earth nailed his colours to the mast/ Cross!
And finally, in prayer yesterday while still meditating on the ‘nail your colours to the mast’, The Spirit of Revelation suddenly showed me The Cross and the nails that pierced His hands and feet, and I saw that the greatest demonstration of victory over the powers of death and destruction was won when the creator of the heavens and the earth nailed His Own beloved Son to The Cross.
If there was ever a picture of nailing your colours to the mast in the midst of a battle raging over the Destiny and Birthright of Nations, it was seeing our beloved LORD and Saviour being nailed to that wooden post…
Even now I can hear the sound of a great battle-cry of His Heart of the Saviour in that moment,…”No Surrender! No Retreat!” as His Body was broken and His Blood was shed, as all the powers of hell reeled against Him.
Even His Own People mocking, rejecting, despising and hating Him, and those whom he had healed and sought to help, were now His enemies, seeking to kill and destroy Him.
But as the battle cry of “No Surrender! No Retreat” filled the atmosphere, the curse of defeat and death shifted, lifted and was overcome. The sound of Freedom and Liberty rang out!
Even as I’m writing this, I see what looks like a glorious Flag of Radiant Colours of the Rainbow being nailed to a wooden mast, a sign of His Covenant Promises, a sign of the manifest power of The Seven Spirits of God.
A sign of my true Identity and Destiny being nailed to that wooden mast. I see all of hell trembling at the sight, and I hear these Words, ”It is finished!”
As God nailed His Colours to the mast in sending His Only Son, not only was it a Declaration of The Victory to come — but of the eternal Hope of our Salvation.
And when we look up to those colours/ covenant nailed to that mast, we are fully Redeemed, Restored and Reformed!
Paul Sails for Rome
“And when it was decided that we should sail for Italy, they delivered Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion of the Augustan Cohort named Julius. 2 And embarking in a ship of Adramyttium, which was about to sail to the ports along the coast of Asia, we put to sea, accompanied by Aristarchus, a Macedonian from Thessalonica. 3 The next day we put in at Sidon. And Julius treated Paul kindly and gave him leave to go to his friends and be cared for. 4 And putting out to sea from there we sailed under the lee of Cyprus, because the winds were against us. 5 And when we had sailed across the open sea along the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra in Lycia. 6 There the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing for Italy and put us on board. 7 We sailed slowly for a number of days and arrived with difficulty off Cnidus, and as the wind did not allow us to go farther, we sailed under the lee of Crete off Salmone. 8 Coasting along it with difficulty, we came to a place called Fair Havens, near which was the city of Lasea.
9 Since much time had passed, and the voyage was now dangerous because even the Fast was already over, Paul advised them, 10 saying, “Sirs, I perceive that the voyage will be with injury and much loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives.” 11 But the centurion paid more attention to the pilot and to the owner of the ship than to what Paul said. 12 And because the harbor was not suitable to spend the winter in, the majority decided to put out to sea from there, on the chance that somehow they could reach Phoenix, a harbor of Crete, facing both southwest and northwest, and spend the winter there.
The Storm at Sea
13 Now when the south wind blew gently, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, they weighed anchor and sailed along Crete, close to the shore. 14 But soon a tempestuous wind, called the northeaster, struck down from the land. 15 And when the ship was caught and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along. 16 Running under the lee of a small island called Cauda we managed with difficulty to secure the ship’s boat. 17 After hoisting it up, they used supports to undergird the ship. Then, fearing that they would run aground on the Syrtis, they lowered the gear, and thus they were driven along. 18 Since we were violently storm-tossed, they began the next day to jettison the cargo. 19 And on the third day they threw the ship’s tackle overboard with their own hands. 20 When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned.
21 Since they had been without food for a long time, Paul stood up among them and said, “Men, you should have listened to me and not have set sail from Crete and incurred this injury and loss. 22 Yet now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. 23 For this very night there stood before me an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship, 24 and he said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar. And behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ 25 So take heart, men, for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told. 26 But we must run aground on some island.”
27 When the fourteenth night had come, as we were being driven across the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors suspected that they were nearing land. 28 So they took a sounding and found twenty fathoms. A little farther on they took a sounding again and found fifteen fathoms. 29 And fearing that we might run on the rocks, they let down four anchors from the stern and prayed for day to come. 30 And as the sailors were seeking to escape from the ship, and had lowered the ship’s boat into the sea under pretense of laying out anchors from the bow, 31 Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, “Unless these men stay in the ship, you cannot be saved.” 32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the ship’s boat and let it go.
33 As day was about to dawn, Paul urged them all to take some food, saying, “Today is the fourteenth day that you have continued in suspense and without food, having taken nothing. 34 Therefore I urge you to take some food. For it will give you strength, for not a hair is to perish from the head of any of you.” 35 And when he had said these things, he took bread, and giving thanks to God in the presence of all he broke it and began to eat. 36 Then they all were encouraged and ate some food themselves. 37 (We were in all 276 persons in the ship.) 38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, throwing out the wheat into the sea.
39 Now when it was day, they did not recognize the land, but they noticed a bay with a beach, on which they planned if possible to run the ship ashore. 40 So they cast off the anchors and left them in the sea, at the same time loosening the ropes that tied the rudders. Then hoisting the foresail to the wind they made for the beach. 41 But striking a reef, they ran the vessel aground. The bow stuck and remained immovable, and the stern was being broken up by the surf. 42 The soldiers’ plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any should swim away and escape. 43 But the centurion, wishing to save Paul, kept them from carrying out their plan. He ordered those who could swim to jump overboard first and make for the land, 44 and the rest on planks or on pieces of the ship. And so it was that all were brought safely to land.“ Acts 27:1-44 ESV.
Blessings to you all.
