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

In wake of London attack, President Trump should deliver major address to define “radical Islamic terrorism,” the ISIS threat, and his vision for victory.

Joel Rosenberg offers an opinion and insights from his on-the-ground experience…

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Coalition-AntiISIS-foreignministers

(Dallas, Texas) — Yesterday, the horrific attack in London underscored yet again the threat radical Islamic terrorism poses to our allies. We mourn for those murdered, killed and traumatized, and we pray for the Lord to comfort and heal.

The attack on our British ally was also a stark reminder that such terror could strike inside the U.S. homeland without warning if our leaders do not aggressively improve defensive measures to protect the American people, and launch far more aggressive offensive measures to decisively defeat the Islamic State and other militant Islamist groups.

UPDATE: ISIS has just claimed responsibility for the attack. “The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition,” says the Amaq news agency, the ISIS press channel.

Great Britain in my Thoughts and Prayers 

Amen, and again amen Tony.

My Dreams and Visions

I pray for those affected by yesterday’s senseless tragedies that took place at Parliament. I pray that the Lord would bring comfort to those affected. I would like to add, however, that as I am typing this blog entry I am seeing a lion that had been lying down with both feet in front on the ground begin to arise from that position and was getting readyto roar. It is my belief that Theresa May has been chosen to lead Great Britain for such a time as this.

Amos 3:8

A lion has roared!

Who will not fear?

The Lord God has spoken!

Who can but prophesy?

Deepest condolences to all affected by yesterday’s attack

Our deepest condolences and prayers for support during their sudden grief go to all those directly traumatised in yesterday’s unprovoked attack in the heart of London. The terrorist, a policeman, American tourist and mum on her way to collect her children were killed but, although casualties are extremely severe, it is fortunate that many more were not harmed.

It’s ironic that I’d just published a follow-up post on Big Ben by referring to when it had surprisingly stopped a couple of months before 2005’s outrage.

The above picture reminds me of the details of the dream given to a reader of this blog in Tucson, Arizona, late in August 2016, which he recalls in his latest follow-on dream I re-blogged at Big Ben Arises With Continual ‘Wake-Up’ Call. The first dream had something that “looked to be a missile” heading for the clock tower (see Tony Puccio’s original post with short discussion), which is what the black 4×4 rampaging along the pavement at 50 mph must have been like!

War Against The World

Fortunately, the rest of the dream’s collapsing tower scenario didn’t happen. Yet, if applied to current events rather than as significant at the time (parliamentary issues over brexit), it could symbolise and warn us of the dangerous, unending fundamental goal of jihadists to subdue all non-Islamic nations by war (ie. ‘Dar Al-Harb’). These retrogrades want to turn the clock back 1,500 years to the Dark Ages by matching their founder’s unholiness of waging war against those who disagree with his beliefs and claims, as recorded in the Qur’an and Hadith.

The Religion of Peace database of attacks carried out by Muslims against non-believers and against their ‘brethren’ will bring yesterday’s cowardly event to 30,500 since 9/11 – the total killed and injured over the last 15 years is many multiples of that figure!!

As this terrorism continues millions of Muslims have been questioning and rethinking their personal faith (see reference 7 below). In reference 2, historian Paul Crawford’s excellent analysis of four myths about the Crusades exposes politicians charlatanry in pinning the blame for modern Muslim’s ‘victim-hood’ upon Christians! And Dr Bill Warner’s 7 pages of historical data on The Jihad That Led To The Crusades  demonstrate ‘jihadic’ attacks and strategic advances occurred on average every 5 years over a 460 year period prior to the Crusades!

Our predecessors of a millenium ago must have been exceptionally patient, but in the end enough was enough – as it is now.

Awakening To The Truth

We know the number of Islamist fanatics is tiny compared to the majority of peace-loving believers, of whom we know a few. Many are appalled at what is being done in their name and that of their religion; eg. Muslim MP Tulip Siddiq tweets “extremists don’t speak for me”, £10,000 has been raised (new target £20k) through Muslims United for London and the Muslim Council calls it a “depraved” act (BBC Latest).

In that series of dreams about Big Ben, Tony heard it striking midnight and in the latest it gives a continual chiming and wakes people from their sleep:

“The morning of 03/11/2017 (US dating) I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging.  Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.  

“It’s my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening, hence the dreams about Big Ben.”

Lastly, let’s remind ourselves of what pastor John Kilptrick heard direct from the Lord on this worldwide No 1 issue, as in His message Midnight Words for 2017 and Beyond -LOL we’re back to that ‘midnight’ theme – it must be very important!.:

MUSLIMS WILL RECEIVE THE MESSAGE  

“Because the Lord is no respecter of persons, a GREAT shaking is coming to the Muslim nations. It will be sudden! It will be an unexpected and unexplained shaking that will redefine many Muslim nations and their leadership structures. The Lord is now in the process of shaking institutions, cultures, dialects, nationalities, governments, political structures and their frameworks, which men have trusted through generations. Many of them will be so shaken they cannot survive the shaking. Holy Spirit will even destabilize power structures, and many of those things that men have relied upon will ultimately fail. Truth will grip men’s hearts like a vice, even the unbelievers’ hearts and the hearts of the heathen. Ears will be opened to hear, even the ears of the ‘unregenerates’.”

Significant timing of planned stoppage of Big Ben

Bob at Socialtraders added this informative observation to the post on Fascinating Flow of News re. Dreams about Big Ben:

“What a fascinating coincidence that after so many years, Big Ben in the Westminster Tower is to fall silent for some months. The long, overdue repairs will be carried out while the terms for Britain’s historic exit from the EU are considered. There is also a warning that the sheer volume of legislation required to position the U.K. for BREXT will dominate parliament’s timetable with other issues being put on hold.

“Surely, this is a time like no other to pray for the UK and to seek the face of God in a day of apostasy.”

Amen!

The initial timing of that news – 26 April last year – as published in The Guardian, is worth noting!

Almost three years earlier, in October 2013, the internationally renowned Revd Dr Sharon Stone issued a ‘Clarion Call’ for Britain and Ireland, especially for England not to miss the Day of Visitation. Therein, she delivered words of prophecy for each nation for the period 2014-2016 and that England was ‘out of sync’ or in a different time-zone spiritually, as in this from the Lord:

“But I’ve given you a door, I have given you an opportunity that during this time you can get caught up and be ‘in sync’ and that you are not going to be behind, or lose your destiny in any way, but instead you’re going to have to depend upon the Spirit of God to get you caught back up to be in the right time at the right place.”

[Sharon had referred to the unexpected stoppage of Big Ben on 27th May 2005, the day before Chuck Pierce called a 40-day intercession immediately before the terrorist attack on 7th July.]

She then brought specific words for England and closed by emphasising the rapid timing of coming events with this very accurate forecast when speaking of a ‘clash of kingdoms’. Here’s my report from that mentoring day:

“Now God says the battles are going to be in Great Britain. Let me tell you why I believe it’s going to be here: where there are great battles there are great victories!

“So God’s not saying, I’m choosing you as a place of war, I’m choosing you as a place of conflict, because I don’t like you…No, the Lord says,

“I’m choosing you as a place for victory, so that the victory won here has an ability to be a victory that affects other nations!”

“Do you hear this? Not just for England, or for Great Britain. So what God is doing is He’s setting up His own agenda that we might have a victory here that releases us to deliver other nations, and puts us back into a functioning position of where our true identity is.

“And we’re not talking about something that takes 10 years to come to pass any more (as with other things) but we’re talking about the next two and a half to three years! Those who have ears let them hear!” (Emphasis added)

Note: “Two and a half to three years” means APRIL to OCT 2016, the lead up to the UK’s referendum vote to leave the EU and subsequent aftermath of nations being shaken!

Perhaps one meaning of Tony Puccio’s latest dreams about Big Ben could be that the maintenance works, starting any time now and taking three years, signify it’s time to get Britain back into proper working order, both politically and spiritually? Then we shall stand much taller than before!

Hopefully, it’s all part of the Spirit of God’s catching England up “to be in the right time and right place” and thereby aligning us with the Kingdom of Heaven.

So we have much to mull over with the Lord and to wait upon…

Prophetic Scripture Update #2: Ezekiel 38 – Gog, Magog tensions on the Golan

Developments over the weekend in Iranian and Russian activity behind the Hezbollah’s preparations to launch an attack against Israel’s northern borders with Lebanon and Syria, together with Israel’s strikes against sophisticated weapons factories and arsenals there, are building up to such an extent that Israel is now on military alert.

Yesterday’s sequential headlines on Koenig’s World Watch Daily read as follows:

  • Israel-Syria clash: with missile fire Assad is changing rules of the game
  • How Russia is turning Syria into a major naval base for nuclear warships
  • Syrian UN envoy: Putin sent messages to Israel its freedom to act in Syria is over
  • Syrian president Assad: we’re counting on Russia to prevent a conflict with Israel
  • ‘Hezbollah is preparing for war’.

Finer details may be read in Debkafile ‘exclusive reports’, which include intelligence on Iran’s involvement at top military level:

  • Israeli-Russian clash over Hizbollah’s Golan grab
  • Israeli drone crashes. Russia fails to de-escalate.
Ezekiel: Gog & Magog

The Gog and Magog war against Israel is described in chapters 38 and 39 of the Book of Ezekiel. The prophet received a word from the Lord to ‘set his face’ against Gog, leader of a coalition of evil nations north of Israel and which include Persia/Iran. Most Bible scholars regard those named peoples as coming from the land between and north of the Black and Caspian Seas. ie modern Russia. The Lord  has a purpose for this battle, viz:

“So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel. I will not let them profane My name anymore – Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.” (Ezek 38:7 NKJV)

This battle also features in Revelation 20:7-10 as precursor to the battle of Armageddon and satan’s doom in the fiery lake.

President Donald Trump and the “42” (part 2)

This valuable insight offered by Mark Davidson is highly significant in my humble opinion – and could support not only the idea of Britain and America as the prophesied ‘Tarshish’ (and he reinforces my remarks on Obama in another recent post), but also my blogging on the revival of our spiritual and political/commercial bond (here and here).

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

So Barack Obama, supposedly the forty-second person to be constitutionally elected president of the United States, is now a former president. He has been replaced by the next person to be president, Donald Trump.

In this earlier post I suggested a theory I heard years ago about the Bible’s use of the number forty-two and its seeming application to the leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States. Ancient Israel and Judah had a total of forty-two kings before changing form and losing their independence.

In the case of the United Kingdom, William the Conqueror was the first monarch of Britain in its current form and the current reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is the forty-second monarch.

And in the case of the United States, President Obama was supposedly the forty-second constitutionally elected person and that was going to be it for the United States in its current form…

GODTV article recommends this blog’s Brexit prophecies library

Featured

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

It was a delightful surprise this morning to learn this blog is one of several sites referred to in Ben Kay’s article published today on GODTV’s website, The Brexit Button: What Are Intercessors Praying and Prophetic Voices Saying? – eg. as in these links:

“The referendum result was split 52%-48% in favour of leaving the EU. However, amongst prophetic voices and intercessors, there seems to have been a much clearer consensus. There was an overwhelming number calling for, and indeed praying for, the UK to come out of the European Union.”

Moreover, it’s an honour for my efforts to be accorded a second double-recognition in the section entitled Brexit and God’s Sovereign Purposes:

“The concept that Brexit is somehow part of God’s sovereign plan, for the UK to be a tremendous blessing once again to the nations, can be quite a challenging one. It may indeed lead us to a place of having to undo our own thinking about Brexit and re-align our understanding with God’s Word.

“To give a clearer picture, Richard Barker has helpfully compiled the words of numerous prophetic voices that have spoken out about Brexit. You may like to take some time to explore various articles on his website entitled ‘Richard’s Watch’.”

Ben also quotes David Chapman’s excellent report on this blog’s What Intercessors ‘Heard’ During the Referendum and US Election.

If you read Ben’s article you’ll see his use of a clock with hands pointing to 12 o’clock as a personal ‘avatar’ icon! Check his article’s discussion thread for more about this.

I particularly thank you especially, my reader, for your contribution in encouraging me by regularly reading my jottings, or dipping in as and when convenient. I trust what you read richly uplifts and blesses you.

All the praise and glory is to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ alone.

Fulfilled Prophecies #18 – fascinating flow of news re. dreams of Big Ben

Houses of Parliament: courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

To recap, my cyber-friend in Tucson, Tony Puccio, recently published two dreams about Big Ben clock tower six months after having an alarming one of its collapse, as here. On 12th February he wrote about its sequel, which I re-blogged at Big Ben and Midnight.:

“I’ve had several dreams concerning Great Britain.  The latest was last night. In the dream I could see Big Ben and the hands on the clock’s face were both in the 12 o’clock position. I remember hearing the bong of the clock’s Bell sounding as well.”

Then last Saturday morning Tony writes as follows:

“…The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging.  Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.  

“It’s my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening hence the dreams about Big Ben. “

I re-blogged that on Monday with preface, ‘it may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will’, and we shared our thoughts on Tony’s comments thread.

BREXIT BILL & SCOTLAND’S PROBLEM

My remark anticipated the ‘spanner’ Scotland’s obdurate First Minister and leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) Nicola Sturgeon could throw into the ‘works’ demanding that nation holds a second independence referendum before Brexit, in view of her desire for Scotland to separate from the United Kingdom and remain within the European Union.

As most readers will be familiar with this thorn in our side I won’t cover this in any depth, but here are this week’s front-page headlines with ‘strap-line’ from The Daily Telegraph :

  • Monday 13th: Sturgeon’s last-ditch bid to ruin Brexit – Scottish leader ready to derail Article 50 vote with threat of new referendum date (online here)
  • Tuesday 14th: The new battle for Britain – PM rules out new independence vote before Brexit and delays Article 50 (online here)
  • Wednesday 15th: Sturgeon abandons bid to stay in the EU – Campaign for referendum wobbles as poll shows most Scots are now Eurosceptics (online here).

I offer no opinion other than, “May Your kingdom come, Father, and Your will be done on our patch of earth as it is in heaven” – amen.

The Origin of Chance

This amusing approach to Creation made me chuckle, and will bring some light relief for any readers musing over Is Free-Will An Illusion? and its attached discussions over at Rationalising The Universe…

The Book of Works

After many many attempts (don’t ask how many, it was a very large number), God finally made the perfect universe. Everything worked great; the stars shone, the sun was brilliant, plants and animals, birds and fish were everywhere, and humans were happily living in the Garden. There was no sin, no death, no misery, and no surprises. God looked at His creation and saw that it was perfect.

But Archangel Michael was bored. So were all the other angels. Now that God had (finally) gotten everything right, including those pesky laws of physics with their infernal constants (see On Constants, Dec 10, 2015 https://thebookofworks.com/2015/12/10/on-constants/ ), there wasn’t much for anyone to do. Satan kept himself busy by trying to tempt some human (for some reason he always tried the women first. That Satan). But he had no success. They always smiled and turned down his offers. Apparently none of them…

Neville Johnson: new edition of ‘Our Finest Hour’ – warning re. USA

Received news this morning from Mark Johnson at The Academy of Light in Australia of the latest e-magazine of insights from renowned prophetical voices. It has an extra item about one of the anti-christ spirit’s current activities in the USA (the Official War Against Trump), to which my Footnote refers:

‘Winds of change are now blowing across the world and the church. This year will see enormous changes occurring across nations, affecting people and the church of Jesus Christ. Birth pangs are now beginning in earnest, with contractions coming more quickly. The whole of creation is groaning and this is a reflection of the battle between light and darkness.

‘God’s word makes it very clear that the true church will reach its greatest glory during the darkest times that this world has ever known.  It is of great significance that the best wine has been reserved for this generation. Many things have been reserved for this last generation which can be distilled into one word, fullness. The cup of iniquity is filling up and the fullness of God’s purposes for the church is now upon us. The fullness of our salvation, that perfect man is about to emerge.

‘Til we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: (Ephesians 4:13)

‘I trust that you will enjoy and be blessed by this edition of Our Finest Hour.’

Blessings

Footnote (RB):

In my coverage of Obama’s Cairo Speech of July 2009 I expressed reservations about the claims of that new president of the United States being a brother in Christ. Also noted was his favour upon the notorious Muslim Brotherhood, the extremism of which I’d read in Egyptian Mark Gabriel’s personal account Islam and Terrorism. (He’s a former professor of Islam and of Islamic history at the prestigious Al-Azhar university – see this post).

I do not wish to be judgmental yet had noted knowledgeable writers’ assertions of Obama being a crypto-Muslim, or even Antichrist itself. The overwhelming evidence of his two terms supports the sentiment of such claims of his furtherance of the Antichrist’s agenda; not only against the nation he led, and especially Bible-believing Christians, but also against the Jewish nation of Israel – and in doing so brought the Genesis 12 curse for failing to bless those people upon the American people.

Read in the download of that ‘yesterday’ man’s reprehensible activities in Organising For Action, along with George Soros’ United To Protect Democracy, in plotting to sabotage his duly elected successor President Donald Trump. Never in the history of modern America have such undemocratic, marxist-style activities been undertaken and countenanced.

Read more about this in Paul Sperry’s Opinion in New York Post, which is quoted by William Koenig from his desk in the White House. In his Eye-View, Bill also cites Christian Post on Obama’s lifelong friend, marxist (?) fellow-traveller and supposed clergyman, Jim Wallis, as starting a witch-hunt against true, righteous Christians!  This crank claims White Evangelicals Voting for Trump Represents “A Crisis in the Church”!!

Preceding those two items quoted at length and under the sub-head Obama Called Himself a Christian, but:  Bill also cites dozens of examples of Obama’s deliberate failure to uphold Christian beliefs, twisting of scripture and causing deep damage to the church and Christians – not to mention Obama’s refusal to stand against persecution of Christians!!!

In view of recent words on the parable of wheat and tares now coming into play, perhaps the Lord is already arranging for the extraction of those tares from His harvest?

Big Ben arises with continual ‘wake up’  

Mulling over the recent midnight theme, including the dream from o’er Pond, I’m struck by Saturday’s follow-up from Tony that may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will (see Telegraph link and Big Ben & Midnight – the dream to which Tony refers was flagged up in Visitation Time – I Am Coming With My Power Like Fire).

My Dreams and Visions

In August of 2016 I had the following vision.

I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile. Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged
The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.

It’s…
