About Richard Barker

I research, watch and blog about international events and Kingdom developments within churches from a prophetical perspective of the Holy Bible. Thus, am interested in revival and possible indicators of Jesus Christ's promised return. My musings may be found on richards-watch.com

What does God and His Word say about masks?

I’m blessed after having blogged about our adversary’s strategy by its being followed by an attack upon our well-being. Why? When spiritual snakes get rattled it indicates we’re homing in on them!

Those postings included a few responses one of which recommends checking for relevant scriptures on ‘maRk’ and ‘MaSk’. So we’re now going deeper into that with another’s recommended link. 

Gilad Rosinger, founder/CEO of Radiant Israel as well as founder/MD of Scrolls of Fire, published his thoughts, and what he believes the Lord gave him, onto his personal Facebook on 30th July.

MOREOVER and ‘COINCIDENTALLY’ whilst inserting these introductory remarks into my draft copy of his special item, I visit his Fb to copy/paste its link and find he’s just started a video message relating directly to the main thrust of my recent posts!!

Midday Monday news – Gov’t mask muddle goes manic

Early afternoon saw publication of columnist Sherelle Jacobs’ intensive slap-down – expose even! – of our government’s incompetence over the Covid-19 pandemic. Her report Second Wave Hysteria is Smokescreen for No 10’s Abysmal Failure starts  after this strap-line ‘Perish the thought that Downing St Machiavellians prefer it that way‘ (emphases mine) :

‘Prime Minister slamming the brakes on lockdown easing. The highest number of daily cases in a month. Restrictions reimposed in the North of England. A ‘major incident’ declared in Manchester as cases surge. Scientists who previously advocated herd immunity now warning pubs may have to shut. You’d be forgiven for thinking the second wave was upon us.

‘But probe a little further, and you realise the public is being bombarded with potentially meaningless – if not outright misleading – numbers. We are being routinely deprived of the one basic figure that would give us a much clearer picture of the state of play: the number of Covid cases being picked up, adjusted for the number of tests done over time. As such a figure takes into account the increase in the testing being conducted across the country (Leicester has ramped up testing dramatically in a short space of time for example), it would give us a much better idea of whether Covid transmission is indeed spiralling out of control.

‘But as Prof Carl Heneghan wrote for Oxford University’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine on Sunday, when you adjust the rise in people testing positive for changes in testing over time, it appears that the rate of cases in healthcare settings is dropping and the rate of cases in the community is flatlining rather than rising, as widely assumed. Even this may be an exaggerated picture, he claims, as false positives risk inflating case figures.

Underlying this academic confusion is an outrageous scandal. Let’s pause and take it in for a moment: more than half a year into this crisis, No 10 (and the media) is still allowing incomplete, poorly interpreted and potentially inaccurate data to be widely circulated, fuelling public hysteria…’  (click to continue reading).

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 2

Another response to testing my ‘insight’ comes from Neil Mackereth, whose writings I’ve featured on this blog. Notably, he adds this PS to his reply: “I am having difficulty with formatting on this email, which has happened in the past, but only when I “go where angels fear to tread”.

Neil attaches this briefing to a follow-on email of 25th July: 

‘Dear Richard, Very interesting and you certainly got me thinking! Here are my notes – I can see real relevance in the maRk and maSk insight you have had and will continue pondering on the significance!

THE MARK OF ‘IMMUNITY’ – or is it ‘ALLEGIANCE’? 

‘As a result of an insight Richard Barker had from the Lord about the one (adjacent) letter change between maRk and maSk I started thinking about links between marks and masks. There are positive “marks” as well as negative “marks”:

Positive:

‘Ezekiel 9:4 “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”

‘Revelation 7:3-4 ““Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.”

‘Revelation 9:4 “They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.”

Negative:

‘Revelation 13:16-18 “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e] That number is 666.”

MASKS AND BEING AWARE

‘Thinking about being aware of the underlying significance behind receiving a mark, or the meaning being masked (hidden) to the recipient, put me in mind of Freemasonry and the initiation ceremony, where the candidate is masked. The French for mask is ‘masque’, from which we get masquerade. Pretence and deception, as expressed by Paul in 2:13-15For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”

‘Revelation 13:14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honour of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

‘I believe the mark mentioned at Revelation 13:16 is a sign of allegiance to the Anti-Christ but, as in Freemasonry, its true meaning may be masked. I also believe that the allegiance (which may be unwittingly given) is expressed by a symbolic mark relating to a disfigurement.

‘Revelation 13:3 “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.”

‘Zechariah 11:16-17 “For I am going to raise up a shepherd over the land who will not care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy, but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hooves.

“Woe to the worthless shepherd,
    who deserts the flock!
May the sword strike his arm and his right eye!
    May his arm be completely withered,
    his right eye totally blinded!”

HOW MIGHT WE BE HOODWINKED?

‘There will be a vaccine and, for seemingly very sensible reasons, people will be encouraged to have an identifying mark (like a tattoo) to show their immunity.

‘In the early stages of “normalisation”, retail outlets (shops, pubs, restaurants etc.) will be able to relax social distancing and mask restrictions, for those who can show that they have been vaccinated (i.e. have the mark of immunity). It will be very difficult to have different rules for the relatively few people (the unreasonable ones) who have declined to have the vaccination, and/or the identifying mark.

‘By a series of ostensibly very reasonable steps, it will become well-nigh impossible for the “unreasonable ones” to shop, travel on any form of public transport (planes, buses, boats and trains), use the NHS, and so on.

‘If being vaccinated is conditional on having some sort of mark, great care will be needed in assessing the appropriateness, in light of God’s guidance on the subject (Revelation 13).

CONCLUSION

‘I am convinced that Richard Barker’s insight aligns with the growing wealth of End-Times information and indicators that the Lord is graciously providing. We must do our utmost to encourage awareness of the significance of the events in relation to Biblical End-Times prophecy.’

3rd Reviewer

Another respected author responds, “I’m taken with the imagery you have presented of masks as they relate to the forehead in conjunction with the requirement for cashless payment in these times. This is strikingly symbolic of the future harsh reality of the mark of the beast in the Tribulation and is another symbol (like the pestilence of Covid) which is a sign in the ‘beginning of sorrows’ of Matthew 24:7 which point towards a future time in the Tribulation when the anti-type of these signs will be much worse. (eg. a mask and a contactless credit card is nothing like as bad as the future ‘mark of the beast’)”

He can follow the symbolism in the piece and wisely advises me to find a firmer anchor in scripture. In my available time and with the theological principle of 1st mention in scripture in mind I consulted Strongs’ Concordance. First mention of ‘mark’ is at Gen 4:17 where the Lord puts a mark on Cain to protect him from revenge attack. It wasn’t easy to find ‘mask’ in Strong’s as it uses the King James Bible, but ‘covering’ appears in Gen 8:13 where Noah removes the covering over the ark after the rains have ceased.

Then along came Neil’s thoughts, and another reviewer kindly drew my attention to an in-depth analysis by someone familiar with Hebrew, and which is republished here.

It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is ticking – Veronika West

This latest from the Lord through Veronika is another great encouragement about the ripening of the ‘wheat and tares’ (Matt 13) AND confirms the main thrust of my posts on satan’s strategy and its attempt to destroy the holy harvest.

IT’S TIME…DESTINY’S CLOCK IS TICKING..!

I hear the spirit say,

“Beloved why do you fear and fret about the future?…Why is your heart so heavy?…Why are you so troubled by the turmoil and despair that threatens to overtake the Nations?…My Beloved, have I not said, that darkness will increase in these days…and that the hearts of many will wax cold?…Yes!! for surely these things must and will take place in order that My Word be fulfilled…But listen! For I tell you the truth…that though the works of the wicked will certainly increase in the days ahead….Know this!!!….The light of my Glory shall arise upon the nations and the darkness of the devourer will be extinguished and the powers and principalities of the prince of the air will be pushed back…and like a mighty battering ram the gavel of My Righteousness and Justice shall come down to smash to pieces the false idols and demonic strongholds of the enemy that have been established in the nations…,Who can stop what I have decreed and who can stand against what I predetermined and predestined before the foundations of the earth?…

“Beloved..do you hear it??…it’s the sound of the ticking of a clock…tick, tock, tick, tock…Look!! for the hordes of hell are being tormented by the sound of Destiny’s Clock…for they know their end and they know that the time is short…

“Beloved!! Come up higher…Open your eyes and See!…For the demons of deception, perversion, infirmity and death have been unleashed upon the earth…and their eyes are firmly fixed upon the harvest fields…and their assignment is to steal, kill and destroy…,But Fear not!!! For a Righteous and Radiant Remnant clothed in the light of My Glory is now rising in the midst of the mayhem and satanic madness…

“Watch! For now an Army of Radical Reformers will Arise and Advance across the Nations…See! for they have been made into threshing sledges, new and sharp, with many teeth…and they will thresh the mountains and crush them…and they will reduce the hills to chaff…and they will take My Kingdom by force…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 Destinies’ 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 kiaros 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!! For it’s a time of Supernatural Acceleration and Kingdom Advancement in the Nations of the earth”...says the Spirit of the Living God.

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 1

This topic is rarely covered because I despise the enemy of our souls and its demonic influences. Hence, my not blogging on this for 5 years 5 months since the mini-series that began with musing upon a devilish plot to avoid the Lake of Fire. Now, another inkling dropped into mind last week and which I submitted to a few friends for weighing. I was surprised, therefore, to receive unexpected confirmation from other sources in UK, USA and New Zealand (reader Alex’s comment), as posted on Saturday.

Therefore, this isn’t for Britain alone, as I’d thought, but is globally relevant too. So let me expand upon the brief outline given in my personal appeal; Wake Up Church! 

NB: In all this please note I’m NOT saying or implying any of the Prime Minister’s or government’s decisions are directed by the demonic; only that they may be to satan’s advantage and thus benefit its ultimate agenda. 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father I ask you to protect each one of my brethren in Jesus Christ reading this by His holy sinless blood; also that access rights the demonic may have are thus rendered null and void. (I’d prepared this for publication a few days ago but awoke with excruciating hip pain on Tuesday that necessitates resting. A prophetical pastor who’s praying for me confirmed my suspicion of it being a demonic attack.)

MASK / MARK OF THE BEAST

Trying to return to sleep after waking early on Saturday 18th July I was suddenly struck by: ‘WE’RE ONLY 1 LETTER AWAY FROM THE MARK OF THE BEAST – WAKE UP CHURCH!’ (maSk…maRk)

That is, we need to realise that compulsory wearing of masks in public is a trial-run, or testing, the progress and outcome of which will inform and lead into the imposition of the infamous Mark of the Beast. It is a softening up and preparing the global population for such an eventuality, as foretold in the Book of Revelation. Therefore, it is increasingly important for Christian leaders to teach about being prepared for the End-Times.

Click to read ScriptureForAll Hebrew Interlinear Bible

[‘He – the Beast from the Sea – causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’ NKJV Rev 13:16-17]

Upon recalling the gist of Revelation chapter 13, it dawned upon me we’re not only ‘one letter’ but also ‘one inch’ away from carrying the full marking, or ‘carved-effect’ (original Greek). The new legal requirement from last Friday imposes a mandatory restriction upon anyone wanting to go shopping and buy anything that focuses not only upon a person’s mask, thereby highlighting their forehead and eyes – its edge being on the bridge of their nose, is an inch below the forehead – but also upon waving a hand in order to buy without handing over cash or cheque, or tapping one’s own private code.

Note two salient points:
  • This Jewish year 5780 is that of Hebrew letter ‘pey’, symbolising the ‘mouth’ and its method of communicating: eg in praise and worship the Lord.
  • the spirit that works in the ‘sons of disobedience’ is also ‘prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2).

Hence, the significance of events focusing upon the effects of everyone’s breathing!!!! AND the poison spewed out in mainstream media headlines and opinions that curses the nation!

Next, it occurred to me this is the 7th instance of this topic cropping up recently through unconnected events.

And they appeared as two lots of triplets!  The first 3 centered on a Friday, as told in End-Times Briefing 13; the second 3 arrived on a Monday (government’s muddle, data from White House author, top Hong Kong lab’s whistle-blower). Moreover, I came under a Jezebelic attack, which the Lord countered by more data. You may recall this blog gives copious examples of ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ arriving like ‘GPS’ (global prophecy signals). The two confirmations mentioned above are the latest example.

Theological Perspectives

I ask that we lay aside any personal, doctrinal preferences when reading Revelation because there’s EIGHT theological interpretations of this profound book, as summarised in my study Bible. Let’s not, therefore, be too dogmatic in assessing my remarks. In my humble opinion, the Lord may permit the imprecision in order to ‘play His cards close to His chest’, keeping the adversary in the dark.  Therefore, if we adhere to a dogmatic ‘timetable’ then satan’s strategy could blindside us by imposing the Mark by nefarious means and catch us in its snare unawares.

Our adversary would want to prevent any possibility of a global Revival and harvesting of souls by getting peoples’ unwitting allegiance to its schemes and thus consequential damnation!  Heaven’s reaping would rob hell of its harvest of humans!!

With reference to my recent Briefings, Jane H asks: “Regarding the mark of the beast surely this will not proceed revival will it?  How can we spread the gospel to anyone having the mark?”

Clearly, Jane has Rev 14:9-11 in mind and which clearly implies those with this Mark are owned by satan, and thus share in its decreed doom. These dread scriptures foretell no possibility of changing allegiance away from satan in this event. However, it may be possible for those who didn’t take the Mark to be saved during an individual’s ‘revival’.

Some may argue the Mark of the Beast won’t apply to the Church because we will have been raptured into heaven (‘snatched up’ – 1 Thess 4:17) before its introduction: ie. the Mark is imposed during the 7 year’s Great Tribulation. I find, however, scripture does not unequivocally support that view – for example:

  • Rev 12:17 – And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
  • Rev 13:7 – It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.
  • Rev 14:12 – Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on’,”
  • Rev 15:2 – And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

Dr David Pawson’s Opinion

In his overview of the epic story of God’s relationship with His people,  world-renowned Bible teacher David Pawson ‘unlocks’ The Apocalypse in 200 pages distilled from a ‘lifetime’s worth of insights’.:

Chapters 6-16…’are relevant to all believers, whatever their contemporary situation…The main motive for preparing to be faithful under pressure is to be able to face Him without shame. Perhaps that explains the reminder inserted between the 6th and 7th bowls of wrath (incidentally, confirming some Christians will still be on earth at the time): “Behold I come like a thief!…” (Rev 16:15…)

An Informed Reaction:

One reviewer’s response:

“The LORD has set you as a voice, to blow the trumpet and get The WORD out. Absolutely; we are seeing the governmental systems and structure of the beast trying to shape out in a more vicious form in the earth. Many political leaders of nations do not know what they stand against; some decisions that they implement are not theirs; if the grounds are lost in the spirit by The Church and the enemy gains a right to impose a sentence; the governments over nations can wield little or no power of resistance. We must realize that when we also pray and gain victories in the spirit; the leadership of nations will have the power to resist the already established victories in heaven. Things are shaping out; the direction of the dance moves that policies reflect shows us what grounds must be contended for to be regained in the spirit. The antichrist is more than a person taking up an office; it’s major stronghold will be the system it sets up; rather than who becomes the figurehead”

Another friend reports encountering email gremlins when replying to me, as in part 2.

Important 2 years ago; MORE SO NOW! – Chris G Bennett

This morning Chris republished on Facebook a highly suitable follow-on to my recent End-Times Briefings and personal appeal to all Christians to “Wake up!”:

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – July 2018!!!   EVEN CLOSER NOW !!!!

There’s some things going down at the moment that we should ALL note and pray about. SIGNS OF THE TIMES have never been so obvious. Never before in such plain sight.

Earthquakes, fires, drought and flood, evil being called good, and good being persecuted as evil. The list goes on and we haven’t even started on wars, rumours of wars, swamp draining, and political shenanigans.

I really have only one message today – WAKE UP !!!

WAKE UP CHURCH

WAKE UP PEOPLE OF GOD

WAKE UP CHRISTIANS

The SIGNS OF THE TIMES say that the LORD IS COMING SOON. Hear the words of the Lord for today.

“IT IS TIME FOR JOY!! I AM COMING SOON!, says the Lord.

“IT IS TIME FOR ALL MY PEOPLE TO PREPARE. PERSECUTION MAY COME – BE JOYFUL. WARS, FLOODS, FIRES, AND EARTHQUAKES MAY COME – BE JOYFUL BECAUSE THE TIME OF MY COMING IS SOON. I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS FOR THIS SEASON. SEEDS OF REJOICING, SEEDS OF COMPASSION, SEEDS OF LOVE. BUT MOST OF ALL I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS OF HUNGER – SEEDS THAT WILL BURST INTO LIFE AS SOON AS THEY ARE WATERED BY MY PRESENCE.”

“BE PREPARED!”, says the Lord, “FOR I COME WITH JOYFUL CELEBRATION. DANCING AND SINGING SHALL BE A SIGN FOR YOU. THEN SHALL COME MIRACLES, HEALING, AND RELEASE. ALL THIS SHALL BE FOLLOWED BY THE SOUND OF WEEPING, JOYFUL WEEPING IN MY PRESENCE, AS MY GLORY FALLS ON YOUR MEETINGS – IN CHURCH AND ON THE STREETS!” says the Lord.

“I AM COMING SOON!” says the Lord God Almighty

Watch for the Lord’s way of lighting Revival – 2017

It just so happens whilst I’m preparing (Thursday) the last three postings on previous prophecies, that Chris Bennett puts this on Facebook and kindly permits my copying:

A reminder from a couple of years ago (15 July 2017)

The Lord gave me a word for the church this morning – “I am lighting a fire in this place today. You are in a dark valley, but the light I am giving you will make you visible like a lamp on a hill and people will be attracted to you.”

There was more but that was personal to the church where I was speaking. The whole word was also personal to that church because they are situated in a valley surrounded by several hills and that place is very dark – sinfully dark with all manner of dark secrets and problems.

However, I believe the word is also applicable to a much wider audience in that the Lord is setting small fires alight all over the place and, as I spoke in an earlier word, the fires will sooner or later come together like a forest fire. That’s when everyone will have to admit that there is a revival going on.

I prophesy that Churches considered small and not worth much consideration will be the ones shining brightest, illuminating all around them. People will flock to these unknown pastors and congregations because they will know the love that flows from those places to be the real thing. Gods love, in action, calling the lost home.

“Watch”, says the Lord, “and see Me bring revival to the most unlikely places, to the most unlikely, even unlovable people, because these are they who will give themselves of everything they are and can be. These are they who have nothing else to give except themselves. These will be My people of revival.”

“I AM ABOUT TO TURN YOUR CONCEPT OF REVIVAL ON ITS HEAD BY USING THOSE WHO REALLY ARE WILLING TO GIVE THEMSELVES TOTALLY – BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO GIVE!” says the Lord.

CGB 2017

A personal appeal: WAKE UP CHURCH!! (GPS #49)

With gratitude to unknown author

Having just read a very strong word from an American prophet I’m breaking into our weekend offline to alert you personally. This has been a burden since the early hours of last Saturday when, whilst trying to return to sleep, I unexpectedly got struck by this dropping into my mind:

We’re 1 letter away from the Mark of the Beast (maSk/maRk): WAKE UP CHURCH!”

I can’t say it was an audible word from the Lord but more like when I ‘heard/knew’ it’s a man-made virus, as a realisation or even an insight upon prophetic scripture. After I’d submitted it to a few friends and pastor for weighing, two confirmations arrived from elsewhere! Here they are…:

1 > On Wednesday, the day I was preparing to republish my open vision of the Rock of Christ emerging down the backbone of Britain and upon which Christians are to take a stand, Voice for Justice issued this alert:

CALLING ALL CHRISTIANS – TIME TO WAKE UP AND STAND! (click to read)

‘We are witness to a declaration of war by the devil on God.  It is a war the devil cannot win; but, while he remains unfettered, he can wreak havoc – separating men and women from God so that, without repentance, they come under sentence of eternal damnation.’

2 > Today, my in-tray contains this confirmation from Wanda Alger:

It’s time for Christians to have a backbone. It’s time for courage to rise up and a zeal of the Lord to overcome our inhibitions and sensitivities. We are being played, and it’s time to defy the giants in the land.’   (THIS IS A TEST)

I trust you will have time to peruse, seriously consider and take note of the content of  both links this weekend.

I hope to blog fully about that insight as soon as possible > now published herein.

To readers who are pastors, I’d strongly recommend your briefing your virtual congregations on End-times scripture and how to prepare for the Rapture and Jesus’ soon return!

Hopeful yet warning word for 2020 and beyond – restructuring!

I’m grateful to my friend Geoffrey Pick of UK Prophetic Words when discussing Yinka’s vision of 2016 for reminding me about and permitting republication of this prophecy which describes unexpected, radical changes 2020 has seen thus far.:

PROPHETIC WORD FOR 2020  – AND BEYOND

I saw a big city. Many high rise buildings that had been standing for a very long time suddenly collapsed and crumbled. In place of those disappearing structures I saw new buildings emerge instantly and very quickly. I felt there was going to be an exchange of structures and functions. This could relate to business, economy, political roles and much more.

The year 2020 will bring upheaval and powerful, swift emergence of new things. Long-established structures will crumble suddenly, not because of external destruction but because they have been in a state of decay for too long. In their place, new ‘towers’, buildings, positions, organisations and people will rise up quickly and with great strength.

This will cause a lot of disorientation to those who are used to the old structures and who are unprepared and undiscerning. It will, however, not be a big surprise to the people who walk very closely with God. They will have anticipated this according to Amos 3:7 “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets”.

People will generally struggle with disorientation as many landmarks they have used as reference points will be gone and other structures will be in place. The people of God, however, will have an opportunity like never before to reassure, give guidance and introduce God’s divine compass. Many people will listen to them, however those with severe pride and hard hearts will dismiss them and continue to try and find their way in their own strength. This will trip them up, injure them and the consequences will be severe in some cases.

Dead religion will feel more cold and carry the air of dark, icy death more than ever. Superficial religion will cause people to feel sick as if having eaten too much candy floss which pleases the taste buds but does nothing to nourish the body. True worship and the places of gathering where true worship is lifted up will have a new warmth and light that is more recognisable and distinguishable than ever before. Those who are hungry and humble of heart will flock to these places and cause the light to glow brighter and warmer.

This is a year of intense separation, and those who have camped on the middle-ground for a long time will find that it is no longer comfortable but utterly dangerous. The middle-ground will split and darkness will starkly separate from light, causing a deep trench to be created. It will be dangerous for those who refuse to choose. Even for those who choose blatant darkness there is greater hope of deliverance as the people of God will seek to establish flexible bridges to enable a crossing from darkness to the light. Those who have been camping in the middle, refusing to move, will fall into the trench which will widen and deepen fast. I saw the trench floor covered in tar pitch which will hold people down very powerfully and cruelly. It will be very, very challenging to leave that place.

Wrong priorities and choices will be a lot more costly in the days to come. Right, God-breathed choices will bring great blessing and reward. Dependence on the Spirit of God for EVERYTHING is absolutely vital.

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” 

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” 

Revelation 22:12 “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

Vision of a great shaking and revival coming to New Britain – 2016

The close of the previous post refers to an extremely unusual ‘coincidence’ concerning Mabel Boyd, a sister at The Gate, Reading, and whom I knew years ago during my attendance there. As she says, “It’s so good that God knows our names!”

Upon returning to my desk last Monday I found an unexpected tranche of messages in the working group for setting up last February’s One Voice Prophecy conference. They begin with Mabel’s copying the text of her pastor Yinka Oyekan’s prophetic vision from four years ago. I asked about the reason for raising it and she replies:

“The prophetic vision came up on my facebook. I decided to take the time to re-read the post. I was deeply moved by the contents. I sometimes look at older prophetic words to see if they speak of what is happening in our nation now. I see this vision as prophetic in contents. I believe this word is active at the moment.”

Upon reading Yinka’s vision I realised it needs republishing as a development upon mine of 2004 – but then got bowled over when Mabel’s name popped up unexpectedly, when about to publish that post!! SO, the Lord’s confirmed it’s TRULY ‘ACTIVE’ and a ‘NOW’ WORD!!!

In its first publication on this blog I mused upon it being what the Pentecostal preacher-healer Smith-Wigglesworth and, 50 years later, his prayer partner Norman James may have seen of Britain in full Revival Glory (as told here):

A PROPHETIC VISION OF THE UK

There is a shaking coming to this nation unlike any that has been seen in a generation. A fulfilment of many prophetic words. God is about to move in ways that will cause the foundations of Hell to shake and the pulpits of the churches to rattle and some to be replaced. The normal acquiescence to what are considered cultural norms are about to shift.

I saw in a vision Father and He had stood up and was calling out the names of His sons and daughters, and pointing to the Cross and they came running to Him. On the streets of the UK, scales were falling off their eyes and many had a change in their countenance as they heard His voice and stood in His presence. They were transformed into courageous prophetic individuals fearless and willing to hold leaders and brothers and sisters to account.

I saw that it is not just political organisations that will be shaken in this season. I saw ecclesiastical structures and organisations being shaken. I saw crowns falling and thrones being removed. A grass-roots call for the church to return to the word of God and its foundational truth will take hold as believers become desperate for a Christianity that is authentic whilst embracing, kind but honest, pure but forgiving, reflecting of true holiness and unwilling to betray the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I saw city after city in a revival of a love for Jesus as the Glory cloud descends. I saw in the vision intercessors suddenly burning brighter, as if the Lord had turned the dimmer switch to its brightest setting, they became like glowing ones, like the angels. I saw in this vision flames of fire raging through the heavens as the tongues of prophets became like tongues of fire, a holy fire.

I see a deep conviction coming upon the church about its moral laxity and complacency, and I see the bride of Christ released from her constraints as Father’s love descends and takes a hold of this United Kingdom. And then I saw the streets filled with multitudes worshiping God with tears and with hands raised in exultation as the orphan spirit over the nation was broken and the nation turned once more to her Father in heaven.

“When Lord?” I said when I saw the vision and He said,

“Soon son, soon. Tell My people to prepare their hearts so that on the day of My visitation they will stand, and tell her leaders I want My church back, and tell My sheep in this outpouring that started in Reading, it’s them and their sons and daughters I wish to empower. So come to the waters and drink.”

Upon visiting Yinka’s Facebook and church website The Gate, I noticed they meet in the building previously used by Tilehurst Free Church (Baptist), which was planted by Carey Baptist in central Reading. I attended TFC from 1990, was baptised by Revd Barry Kirk and stayed until marrying my dear Nina in 2002, thereby moving to East Hants.

This reminded me of a vivid ‘flash image’ I had in a service at Meadway in the mid-90’s of a nuclear explosion but in reverse! It was about the time most Reading churches started praying together. I understood the image to mean the Lord’s power would unexpectedly explode but it would come inwards to the town and thereby get concentrated.

Let it be so Lord…

Vision of Rock of Christ emerging from rotten fabric of UK society – 2004

It’s good to get ‘space’ for mental and spiritual chilling in a rare ‘quiet’ period preparing for a long-needed break BUT I see not a few items brewing up!  They connect into the satanic strategy behind what I was blogging upon last week, the others show the Lord’s strategy of reviving old prophetic visions and words, indicated through His ‘GPS’  (global prophecy signals). Giving proper precedence to the latter, here’s the first item, as told in this extract from my email of 18 August 2011 to church friends and a few leaders:

COMMENTS UPON THE COLLAPSE OF SOCIETY

(A Word received by Revd Dr Sharon Stone)

Dear Friends,

Further to circulating a word received through Lance Lambert on the eve of the London Riots (see email 9 August) and Dr Sharon’s insights 12 August (original email and link n/a but amended Oct 2016), I was reminded Billy Graham’s grandson is coming to stir the youth of Britain in late September.

(HA! Only after having inserted that line to precede my comments written below, have I  just noticed its title, Will Graham Set to Rock the UK, alludes exactly to the climax of the event I’m writing about….)

Personally, I’m encouraged that this word (through Revd Dr Stone) confirms the gist of an open vision that came at the opening of worship at the start of a conference in St Albans in October 2004.

Before me I ‘saw’ a map of Britain surrounded by the sea, as though painted on rotten sacking – like old, wet coal-sacks I’d seen in my youth. It seemed the Lord was saying the fabric of our nation’s so rotten He could tear it apart easily. 

This ‘map’ then began to rip apart in the middle, from about the line of Hadian’s Wall down along the line of the Pennine chain to the Midlands, and I sensed the Lord say, “I’m going to put the backbone back in Britain”. (I recalled that the Pennines are known as the spine of England.)

But out of the tear arose a very long rock, which I understood as meaning the Lord would restore our strong, spiritual backbone when we stand upon Him, The Rock.

[Previously I’d noted, ‘Could the Lord be allowing increased persecutions here for the purpose of putting the spine back into Christians and making us stand up strongly?’… And Parliament has since been, and continues to be, thoroughly shaken and ripped open – do it to the media and elsewhere, Lord…Did you know that mounted, body-armoured police in Manchester interrogated a street preacher just because he was inviting people to an Easter service? Next, a hate-crimes unit visited him at home!!!]

It wasn’t so much the unexpected and unbidden nature of the event that startled me. It was because I thought I heard the Lord say that He would rip the nation apart as easily as an old sack because of its rotten nature!!  That troubled me for I considered such to be contrary to his loving nature. 

But NT scriptures do speak of judgement and He gives many repeated warnings of such impending action (eg. as given this month through Lance Lambert).  Yet, we must plead His remembrance of mercy and of Jesus’ sacrifice, through which comes the fullness of true blessing.  All rather a profound mystery.  Also, let’s not forget that the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11.2) were aspects of the Holy Spirit prophesied for the descendant of King David’s father Jesse: Jesus Christ. 

NB > the vision was soon offered to several church leaders for weighing, yet it evoked no response. However, upon our attending a prophecy school the next year (2005) at Bath, I submitted it to Dr Stone who immediately agreed its validity and called her ‘master-class’ to intercession!

2020 > LOL! LOL! LOL! Checking the links in this 9 years-old email still function I found Dr Sharon’s goes to The Elijah List AND shows in its Facebook ‘Like’ the name ‘Mabel Boyd’, who inspired me to republish this mini-series!!!  Wish I’d taken a ‘screen-shot’ as the name’s since changed upon my revisiting.

A Declaration over the Church in this New Season – Passion for the Nation

Click image for Facebook and previous declarations

CHURCH

“As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.”  (James 5:11 AMP)

We thank You and praise You for the work of Your Spirit in our lives through this season, we thank You for the new mantles You have given and for every new desire, method and strategy You are releasing from Heaven. We speak the release of every ministry into their God-appointed place and position – and we declare in this day: God’s people will live out of the fullness of the blessings received through Jesus Christ.

We come into agreement with Your word in Joshua 1, “I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses,” and we call God’s people into a new season of walking the land. We call forth those who pray for the streets and the communities, we call forth those called to bring healing to the land and we call forth those called to reopen past wells of revival and transformation. We declare the fullness of the Father’s love and His Kingdom’s purpose of peace and righteousness will be released across the land.

As Lockdown eases and the ‘new normality’ begins, we thank Him for the greatness of the plans and purposes He has for individuals to partner with Him to bring awakening to this nation. We stand in our true identity as the children of God and we decree and declare the power of the resurrection life of Jesus will overcome every work of the enemy seeking to delay, rob or destroy.  In the Name of Jesus, we declare over individuals, ministries, businesses and churches: this is the season of re-set, restoration and restitution, and we decree new levels of faith and hope will arise upon His people.

We declare His grace is sufficient, and we speak the release of finances, resources, strategies, and connections that every Kingdom plan and purpose will be fulfilled.

 

NB: We have posted some new videos onto our YouTube channel. I would particularly like to recommend one called – A Legacy Key – which is a useful aid in understanding the Christian heritage within our nation, and a set of three – A Tale of Two Systems.  This set looks at the fundamental differences between the worlds systems and the Kingdom of God.
