I knew something was brewing with my friend Neil Mackereth as he wrote me three months ago:
“Last Sunday, the preacher posed the question: “What Breaks Your Heart?”. For me, the answer is that God has given us all the information we need to understand our times and prepare for the huge economic, logistic and societal world crisis that is on the near horizon, and from which a “New World Order” will emerge. It is heartbreaking that much of the church ignores the subject…”
On 12.12.2022 Neil sent me the paper he’d hinted about, and I particularly note he begins by citing my personal ‘mission statement’ of nearly thirty years ago for dealing with my past, then being trained in healing and deliverance ministry. Also, his Conclusion begins with the concept recently disclosed at one of my men’s Saturday breakfasts. Hence, my emphases:
SATAN’S SCHEMES – FALSE PROPHETS
The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:11 that we are not to be ignorant of Satan’s schemes. While contemplating the state of the world, in relation to Satan’s schemes, God laid on my heart three areas on which to focus: Israel; the UK (as a sanctuary); and the New World Order.
As many readers will know, my particular interest is in signs, predominantly those relating to the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, and those that confirm that God’s hand is at work in our time. It seems to me that we are surrounded by signs, and for the most part, they are ignored. The existence of biblical prophecy, validated prophetic ministry, and signs related thereto, are for our benefit; they show that God is in control and confirm His unfailing love. The victory is assured.
Over recent weeks various news items have reinforced my view that the Biblical End-times clock is speeding up – Satan appears to have the upper hand and the time of tribulation is imminent. We are witnessing great confusion, including dramatic climate swings, severe economic turbulence, wars, famine, plague, pestilence persecution and poverty, and worldwide social unrest and upheaval.
Recently the UN passed a motion that there would be an annual commemoration event to mark the “catastrophe” (‘nakba’ in Arabic) of the birth of Israel (14 May 1948). Meanwhile, Israeli news sources report a growing number of Arab Nations making peace agreements with Israel. The contradiction, that many of the same Nations that voted in support of that particular UN motion are also looking for peace agreements with Israel, would not be a surprise to Jeremiah. The danger is in not recognising God’s warning: “Prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit …….. Peace, peace they say, when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6:13-14, 8:11 see also Ezekiel 13:10, 16).
Tempting as it is to agree with, and wish to follow, those who prophesy peace, it is NOT what the Bible says will happen. Confidence in peaceful coexistence is misplaced, which is not to say it won’t happen for a while. Biblical prophecy will be fulfilled and it is clear, from Ezekiel 38, that nations will come against Israel at a time when they are “a land of unwalled villages …… a peaceful and unsuspecting people”.
The Lord said to me there will soon be a false peace. Thereafter, however, the enemies surrounding Israel will intensify their screaming for Israel to be crucified, it BREAKS MY HEART. As in the times of Habakkuk, the situation will be desperate, but understand this, “I HAVE NOT AND WILL NOT ABANDON MY PEOPLE ISRAEL”. These tribulations must take place: do not pray against the fulfillment of prophecy, rather pray that the wicked will repent.
In a recent case the Crown Prosecution Service expressed the view that the Bible is no longer relevant to modern society and that quoting scriptures in public, if deemed inappropriate by the CPS, is likely to lead to prosecution for “hate speech”. Another news outlet reports that a preacher, in a recent sermon at Cambridge Trinity College Chapel, expressed the opinion that Jesus had a transgender body.
The gender confusion within much of the church, combined with appeasement with liberal views and the absence of strong biblically based leadership are, I believe, major contributors to the decline in “mainstream” church attendance.
Notwithstanding the move away from fundamental biblical truths, the Lord made it clear to me last year that He has a role the church in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The Lord showed me a picture of a very large cathedral-like building dominating, as it were, the islands of the UK. The doors were wide open and people were pouring in, while others were outside showing no interest. I was taken inside and many pastors were there, in dazzling white robes standing in shafts of light with arms outstretched, ministering to the visitors. In the shadows there were other clerics dressed in black.
“What does this mean, Lord?”
“I am making Great Britain a refuge (a sanctuary for the time of “Jacob’s Trouble”). Do not be judgemental, I am asking the praying remnant of Bible-believing Christians to intercede for those in the shadows, that they will move into the light.”
“Why is it so important?”
“There is an urgent need for more pastors who are well versed in Bible truths. There is also a need to address the problem of false prophets in the church and, in particular, the very dangerous and deceptive nature of Replacement Theology. Time is short and it is vital the multitude of would-be believers are not led astray by pastors whose views of Biblical truth and Kingdom values, are unsafe and unsound. Pray that the convictions of those in the shadows will be aligned to Gospel truths, particularly with regard to the enduring significance of Israel. The Holy Spirit will give you the discernment you need for this task.”
I understood that the shaking, sifting and repositioning in the church over the last few years is reaching a climax. I was also reminded that there has been a consistent chain of surprises (unexpected outcomes) that have shown that God has been removing Great Britain from an unholy and inappropriate alliance. God has separated the UK in order for it to be a rock of refuge in a sea of troubles, a light in a dark place in the time of need that is now upon us and growing in intensity.
THE NEW WORLD ORDER
It is clear from Scripture that a charismatic leader will emerge on the world stage who will have extraordinary ability to inspire, motivate and unite nations in a common cause to resolve the problems facing the world. The true identity of this leader, the Antichrist, will only be fully revealed when he proclaims himself god in the Temple in Jerusalem.
An organisation, the World Economic Forum (WEF), is waiting in the wings in the expectation that a world government will soon be necessary to cope with the deepening crises we face.
The Great Reset is an initiative, first announced by the WEF in June 2020:“The world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a Great Reset of capitalism”
“There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the Covid-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world. I have written in depth on the WEF in a paper entitled: The World Economic Forum (Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight).
Suffice it to say, we cannot, and should not seek to, stop the establishment of a new world order. However, recognising, explaining and broadcasting the method by which prophecy is being fulfilled, will aid evangelism. We can pray that the maximum number of people will see, hear and understand what the information means.
Satan knows what the Bible says, and that the Book of Revelation shows that Jesus will return to rule His people and the world, from Jerusalem. Satan’s delusion is that he believes he can prevent Jesus returning*.
How did the world get to this dire situation?
One of Satan’s advantages is that many people do not believe he exists! Scripture shows that Jesus took him very seriously. Scripture also reveals some of Satan’s endeavours to undermine God’s plan. We know that Satan misleads, he is devious and deceitful beyond all measure. His biggest success is in plausible near-truths that confuse and undermine the integrity of those responsible for leading, teaching and pastoring the flock – some have become witting, and some unwitting, false prophets!
God has given us all the information we need to understand what is happening. A convergence of crises will lead to a worldwide economic and social collapse, which will be the catalyst for the emergence of a charismatic leader and the implementation of a world government – the New World Order.
Why is all this so important? In battle, in both the natural and the spiritual realms, it is vital to know as much as possible about the enemy’s motives, intentions and modus operandi.
We are about to enter the Time of Tribulation: we will face huge physical challenges and the most intensive spiritual warfare the world has ever known. A new world order is foretold and inevitable. Great evil is coming upon the world but the apparent triumph of wicked men will not hinder God’s plan. We are part of that plan and must do our utmost to explain what is happening.
*Satan’s Delusion is manifested in his efforts:
1) to tempt Jesus to sin and so become unworthy as Saviour
2) to destroy Jesus;
3) to disperse the Jews and fragment and undermine their national identity, and/or
4) to annihilate all Jews so that Jesus has no Jewish Kingdom to return to and rule;
5) to prevent the establishment of a Jewish nation state (Israel); and/or
6) to destroy Israel or Jerusalem, or to divide Jerusalem (i.e., ensure control remains in the hands of non-believers).
Satan tried the first and was resisted. He tried the second and was spectacularly defeated when Jesus rose from the dead. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth have been ongoing throughout history. I cannot over emphasise the huge significance of the reestablishment of Israel as a nation state in 1948 and the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967. The Temple Mount, however, remains in the hands of Gentiles and Satan continues his onslaught.
In cultivating antipathy towards the Jewish people, Satan has had considerable success in his endeavours to distance the Gentile Christian church from its Jewish roots. Tactics include: Distortion of Scripture. There are various ways of distorting Scripture, ranging from: e.g. changing the actual words of the Bible, as in the Jehovah’s Witnesses “Bible”, to: using complicated “intellectual” theological interpretations to redefine/”reinterpret” Scripture, e.g. supersessionism (replacement theology, also known as fulfillment theology i.e. that Israel was simply a picture of the true people of God which the church now fulfils); also, adapting to meet the requirements of “political correctness”; super-spiritualising and complex theorising on the meaning of passages of Scripture; Distraction and Diversion. Satan has been extremely successful in convincing much of mainstream church leadership that Eschatology in general, and the Book of Revelation in particular, are too difficult and too disturbing and should be avoided; Pandering to Vanity. For example, organisations that encourage members to believe they are superior beings and which involve rituals and customs which may have hidden connotations that are not fully understood by members. In some cases, the true nature of the organisation is masked by “good works” and the influence of members who are powerful “pillars of society”; Harmonisation Through Compromise (Appeasement). For many who seek to avoid confrontation, there is a wish to comply with liberal agendas and “political correctness” and not “rock the boat”. Many are deeply challenged by what the Bible has to say about moral standards and behaviour. Fear of offending encourages us to water down any view that appears contrary to adopted and accepted humanistic and liberal opinions. This is fertile ground for Satan’s endeavours to undermine the authority and credibility of the church.
