Today’s and one month away’s awesome events in the heavens

Saturday was ‘fortunate’ in my being able to blog quickly on the significance of today’s heavenly event – the total solar eclipse that’s crossing the United States from west to east – but there wasn’t time to give any specifics as to what to watch for in Mark Blitz in-depth teaching.

Moreover, an even more astonishing matter not only links today’s stellar event of being at the start of the new month of Elul (the month of preparatory repentance leading into the Jewish New Year) with its close at the two-day feast of Rosh Hashannah, but also with a secular, global declaration on 21st September – as foretold about 1,967 years ago in one of the earliest, if not the very first, documents of the Christian church – Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians!

So let me draw your attention to the points Mark makes, as in Ernest Hay’s version of his session at CHP on Sunday 13th August:

As mentioned in that post, Mark’s teaching is worth watching in its entirety in order to grasp the enormity of what’s happening and its relevance to holy scripture.  The points I want to highlight and their timings are:

  • 0:48:00 – astronomical mechanism of eclipses and lunar basis of God’s calendar
  • 0:50:50 – earth-moon:earth-sun distance AND comparative size ratio = 1:400
  • 0:51:45 – archaic form of Hebrew letter tav is X and its numerical value is 400
  • [‘tav’, means ‘sign, mark, signal or monument’]
  • 0:59:15 – ‘X’ is shape of paths of today’s eclipse and in 7 years time across USA
  • 1:01:20 – astronomical location of today’s eclipse is in constellation Leo
  • 1:02:00 – the alignment of planets on 23rd Sept in Virgo matches Rev 12 ‘woman’
  • 1:06:05 – UN’s annual International Day of Peace inaugurated 11 Sept 2001
  • 1:07:00 – dates changed to 21st September with different theme each year
  • 1:07:25 – 21st September for 2017-18: ‘Peace, Respect, Safety and Dignity’!

Note that Apostle Paul conveyed to the early church what he’d learned direct from the Lord Jesus Christ on that subject:

‘But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.’  (1 Thess 5:1-4 NKJV courtesy Biblegateway.com)

This is what I was referring to in closing To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’… about the silencing of Big Ben in London from today, a month to the day away from Rosh Hasannah.

In view of the Jewish calendar starting each month at the new moon, some have queried Mark’s statement of the eclipse being at the start of Elul.  The month is reckoned from the time a new moon is sighted and Mark has posted an informative clarification on his El Shaddai Ministries website (see home page video).

Readers interested in next month’s astronomical relevance of Revelation 12 may like to note its reference in Supermoon Monday’s ‘Blood Moon’ and the ‘Age to Come’ (posted Sept 2015).

 

Solar eclipse across America signals onset of repentance

RJ Dawson continues his provocatively instructive series on economic crises and divine judgement by considering the timing of today’s solar eclipse.

   Today’s rare celestial event is strangely coinciding with emerging economic and social turbulence that will likely grow worse in the coming weeks.

         On August 7, I wrote and finished editing Part 1 of this series.

      On August 8, the Dow Jones reached its highest peak in history after climbing all year.

        On August 9, before dawn, I posted Part 1, Economic Crash and Burn. On that very day the market immediately began dropping, losing 335 points over the next two days.

A dream about the solar eclipse over America

Wanda Alger’s dream and interpretation is offered for my readers to weigh with the Lord. (It sits well in my spirit and accords with several prophetic words on the state of the church.) Thank you Wanda and Tony for the link.

Wanda Alger.ME

I had this dream on March 17 and thought of this upcoming eclipse on August 21. I have purposely avoided reading too many other opinions so as not to be swayed by others. What I share on the eclipse is simply the PART the Lord has shown me. It is not in response to what anyone else has said. If it confirms other prophetic voices – praise God. If not – discern for yourself:-). My assignment from the Lord has always dealt with the condition of the CHURCH so this dream seems to speak to that.

I will note that though this eclipse on August 21 is an amazing phenomenon, it has been expected for years. It is not a sudden “miracle” or “wonder” (we can scientifically explain it) but God will often use “markers” in the heavens to confirm His dealings with man.

This was the essence of my…

On the significance of Monday’s total solar eclipse across USA

Featured

Path of 2017 and 2024 total eclipses; credit NationalEclipse.com (tap for link)

A couple of sources of information on Monday’s total solar eclipse across the USA, of which the second greatly expands upon the first: eg. insights from Hebrew meaning of the ‘heavenly X’ across the States:

Introducing the following article in his latest Eye-View From The White House, William Koenig states it’s “prepared by my assistant Max Obeidin and, to say the least, this is very interesting and fascinating information.”:

The Biblical Significance of the August 21 total solar eclipse – the total solar eclipse in the United States and the numerous biblical parallels to Israel.

> The eclipse will produce a 67-mile-wide path across America; 1967 was the year Israel regained Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. The property lines are often called the pre-67 lines in peace talks.

> The maximum level of eclipse coverage will be over Washington, DC at 2:42 PM (about 81 percent). UN Resolution 242 calls for Israel to give up land for an Arab state that is Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. The resolution is the foundation for the peace talks.

> The suns will set in Jerusalem at the time the eclipse’s shadow of totality arrives in Oregon on August 21.

> The eclipse line divides the land of the US; the Israeli-Palestinian peace process calls for the land of Israel to be divided

> The paths of the August 21, 2017 and April 8, 2024 total solar eclipses create a cross, with a phase of totality of 9000 square miles the size of New Jersey. Israel is often said to be the size of New Jersey.

From Max Obeidin:

‘In last week’s new report, we shared a commentary by Anne Graham Lotz called “Is God’s Judgment Coming on America?” about the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21. In Anne’s commentary she linked to a sermon by Australian pastor Steve Cioccolanti where he discussed the eclipse. One of the things that he mentioned is that zone of totality first arrives in Oregon at 17:16 UT (or 10:16 AM PDT), which is the same time the sun sets in Jerusalem at 7:16 PM. But there are a least a few other significant facts about the eclipse that seem to relate to the US role with Israel.

‘The National Eclipse Blog says, “From Oregon to South Carolina, the eclipse will trace a 67-mile-wide path across the country and millions of Americans will witness a once-in-a-lifetime event as the moon passes between the earth and the sun and day turns to night for up to almost three minutes.”  (X marks the spot two total solar eclipses in seven years)

‘Other sources have also noted that the path of the eclipse averages 67 miles wide. This 67-mile-wide ‘line’ so-to-speak essentially cuts the United States in half at a diagonal angle, dividing the land into two parts.

‘In the year 1967 Israel regained control of the eastern half of Jerusalem, as well as the Gaza Strip, West Bank, Golan Heights, and the Sinai Peninsula (although Sinai was later given back to Egypt). People that call for a two-state plan often mention the pre-war 1967 borders that existed before Israel regained control of Jerusalem and those other areas, sometimes referring to them as the ’67 lines. While our president is hoping to make the ‘ultimate deal’ for a two-state plan which would involve dividing Jerusalem and Israel based on using the ’67 lines as a starting point, America is symbolically being divided by a ’67 line.’ This seems to be very significant. The path of the 2017 eclipse also looks like it is sloping downward since it moves from the Northwest to the Southeast. Even this shape could possibly have a significance. In economics, when a line appears on a graph in this shape it is typically used to show a decline in something. It also looks like a slash mark across America, which is often used to negate something (i.e. think of a no eating symbol on a bus).

‘Washington, DC is not in the path of totality of the eclipse. However, there is another interesting fact which may be symbolic. According to timeanddate.com the eclipse reaches it maximum level of coverage over Washington, DC (of about 81%) at 2:42 PM. In 1967, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 242 which called for “withdrawal of Israel armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict.”

‘Not only is there the concern that this eclipse could be an indication of God’s judgment, including for the U.S. role in the peace process, there is also further concern because another solar eclipse will happen approximately seven years later April 8, 2024. When you take the paths of the phase of totality of these two eclipses and cross them together, it makes a large ‘X’ over America which is centered close to Carbondale, Illinois. What makes it even more significant is the size of the area where the paths of totality cross. National Eclipse Blog describes it as such, “Because the 2017 eclipse travels across the country from northwest to southeast and the 2024 eclipse makes its way through the nation from southwest to northeast, the two paths cross each other and create a zone of overlapping totality of almost 9,000 square miles, or roughly the size of New Jersey” (x-marks-the-spot). The size of Israel is often compared to the size of New Jersey. Many pro-Israel speakers will distinctly say that Israel is “about the size of New Jersey.”

‘An ‘X’ over something is often used as a symbol of rejection. What does it mean for America when these two eclipses that are about seven years apart have paths of totality that form an ‘X’ over America with an area of overlap that is close in size to Israel?

‘While there are certainly other factors that are leading our nation further into God’s judgment, could the two eclipses be a warning that the tipping point for judgment is touching the land of Israel?

‘Even if this is so, as believers in Jesus we cannot live under a spirit of fear. One of the most amazing things to reflect on about these eclipses is that God already had these celestial events planned even before he set the sun, the earth, and the moon into their orbits. And even though the warning of judgment is a cause for concern and prayer about America, there is also something that we that live for Jesus can take comfort in. And that is that God is sovereign over the events of the Universe. He already knew before the world was created how all these things would take place. He knew the timing, locations, and parameters these events. Not only did He know them, but He was the One that ordained and orchestrated these events according to His divine and sovereign plans. And this is a good lesson for our lives.

‘Do we trust that the God who set the sun, the earth, and the moon into their orbits and planned these celestial events out plans our lives with perfect knowledge and understanding? Do we believe that if we let God guide our steps that He will orchestrate them in a way that is in perfect alignment with His sovereign will? And do we trust that even in the midst of any upcoming judgment that our nation may face, that God can give us the strength to focus our eyes on Jesus and to do our part to the do the Lord’s work?

‘There is indeed concern about what is coming to America. And this means that we must pray for God’s mercy, pray for our own safety and the safety of others, and especially that we pray for the salvation of those that do not know Jesus. And we must share the truth of God’s word and the Gospel when it comes to our individual and national accountability for sin and the need to repent, and we must also share God’s biblical truth about not diving the land of Israel. But we should do this with confident eyes on Jesus. When judgment comes, it will shake America, but Jesus will never be shaken! We will do our best to overcome what we may face nationally and individually if we are confident in and established firmly on Christ the Solid Rock!’

AND yet, maybe there’s an even more profound meaning to this ‘sign from heaven’?

IS ‘X’ THE HEBREW ‘TAV’ (SIGNAL)?

Mark Biltz, the messianic Jewish believer renowned for his work on the ‘blood moons’ says this symbolical manifestation of the sun, moon and sky is exactly like the shape of the ancient form of the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet – ‘tav’, which means ‘sign, mark, signal or monument’!!  His teaching last Sunday at Church of His Presence was exceptionally informative and I’d encourage every reader to set aside an hour to listen. Tap/click on this announcement for the video, where Mark starts speaking at 1:00:30..

He asks,

“WHAT TIME IS IT? Does anyone here know and do you know how to tell the time according to God’s calendar?”

He stresses “We need to know what time it is!” and that we cannot properly understand the Bible’s prophecies without an appreciation of the Hebraic perspective. So he brings an excellent introduction to anyone new to the subject and deep insights for those who are familiar with it from a church viewpoint only.

We learn how highly significant ancient and modern events in Jewish history are linked to the dates in their dual-calendar!!  AND about the relevance of this eclipse’s date.

A scriptural supplement may be read as pdf file via this graphic:

Mark’s connecting ‘dot’s and fitting ‘puzzle-pieces’ is ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDING, so it comes with my strong, unequivocal recommendation. (His terms not mine, so we’re on the same wavelength!)

IT IS REQUIRED VIEWING THIS WEEKEND – may you be mightily blessed my reader.

Prophetic word on manifestation of flames of fire and of the Glory

AWESOME ‘COINCIDENCE’!!  Just in from a walk and checking emails and note this from and courtesy of Chris Bennett and UK Prophetic Words. As I copy/paste and read ‘ramping up…’ it all matches the rhythm of Kenny Peavy and band on my hi-fi urging the Lord to purify them...”My heart is burning for you, my heart is burning for you…I’m hungry, thirsty longing for You…”, and then plead, “Set me on fire with Your fire” …

Tongues of Fire Acts 2-3

PENTECOSTAL FLAMES OF FIRE WILL DESCEND AND THE GLORY WILL MANIFEST VISIBLY

It’s all ramping up! The wave just gets bigger by the moment. There is a build-up of Holy Spirit power and pressure and sometime soon it’s going to blow! I prophesy that it will have a different release point and a different effect and manifestation in each place Holy Spirit decides to let loose. The manifestation will be suited to the recipients – I don’t know how else to put it.

In a quiet church the manifestation will be quiet, while in a loud, bouncy church the manifestation will be more explosive. In both cases I see Pentecostal flames of fire descending upon the people. However, the result will be the same – an explosive growth in both churches with signs and wonders following. So – what will it look like?

The only examples we have are Argentina, Toronto, Pensacola, and later moves. There may even be some quite elderly saints who can go back to the Hebridean Revival of 1949–51, but it has been prophesied time and time again that this coming move will be different from anything seen or recorded previously.

I prophesy the Ruach, the wind of the Spirit, will manifest in meetings. The Ruach shall blow and the Glory shall enter. I prophesy that the Glory Cloud, the Shekinah Glory, will manifest visibly. I prophesy that those in the meetings where these signs are manifest shall, like Moses and others since, shine – their faces shall shine and reflect the Glory of God’s presence. I see people laying in the Glory as ones dead, only to rise again in a while singing and giving praises to the Lord, faces shining brightly from His presence.

The fire will fall and people will experience, many for the first time, the touch of God – that touch that sends electricity racing through your body, that fills you with such faith and power, that gifts us everything we need for our calling, our ministry. For some it will be a quiet peaceful thing; for others it will be like Elijah on the mountain – wind, fire, earthquake, and stillness. No two will necessarily be the same. I prophesy that each of us will meet with the Lord in the Glory – and we’ll never be the same again!

This is the coming season of revival. It is starting already and it is certainly coming to a church near you very soon.

It’s not the End but the Start of an amazing, wonderful New Day!

It’s ‘kinda-coincidental’ that early on Tuesday morning two readers left encouraging comments on February’s post: Dreams and visions of Big Ben at the prophetical midnight hour – and that I saw that day’s headline on the clock’s chimes being silenced for four years and wanted to blog about that (see previous post). And it was opportune to use a graphic of Big Ben from an unknown source used to announce an intercessory gathering in Canterbury under the designation “It Is Time”!

The first of those comments was from Jonathan and followed up his earlier remarks,

‘With these prophecies I think it’s significant (as I e-mailed you at the time Richard) that the big prayer movement thing in South Africa that started early this year has been called “It’s Time”, as that was the message at least one of its organisers said God had given him.’

So I replied to him about that same title being used in a Canterbury meeting. Within half an hour of his commenting Sarah submitted this excellent, revelatory account:

‘I recently felt God saying it was a new day and I saw the sun rising. I was surprised as in Jewish culture a new day starts the evening and then its darkest before the dawn. But here was a new day like our culture is used to with the sun rising. So Malachi 4:2 makes sense to me in this context.

‘A couple or so years ago I had a vision / God video with music (which was playing on the radio), it was an Adele song “When the sky falls we all stand together” and I saw the children of God all hand in hand with Jesus amongst them. They were totally pure and clean, they were blameless. They walked together as the sun rose on a new day and then Jesus spoke to me. He said,

“It isn’t the end, it’s the beginning of an amazing and wonderful new day”.

‘I haven’t been the only one to say they get the general impression that they are walking into heaven on earth. I think we are as the Kingdom of God is expanding and now is the time that God is making all things new. I used to be scared of end times, but after that vision I wasn’t the same at all because God gave me hope through it. That there wasn’t anything to worry about, and that although I felt at the time like I was still a sinner, the reality was that I was blameless because of what Jesus did on the cross and there was hope in the new day we were all walking into, totally innocent children of God…’

To me (Richard) this is particularly pertinent because I’ve been musing about the distinct and stark contrast between the futures of the righteous and the unrighteous, between believers in Jesus and those who won’t. Scripture foretells worldwide judgments upon unregenerates but that those in Christ will safely escape Father’s wrath. Yet, in rapidly approaching that time, how does that difference manifest?  For a while I’ve wondered if the divergent, opposing theological views may somehow be reconciled…and then a ray of revelation dawned…

In considering how prophecies made by Jesus and Paul apply to the apostasy of the recent Synod I blogged about the Day of the Lord and repeat for ease of reference:

‘…it’s important not to overlook the fact that in quoting Isaiah 61 as His ‘mission statement’, Jesus opened that scroll in the synagogue and quoted the first verse only, and then stopped short (Luke 4:16-21). The Spirit of the Lord God was upon and anointed Him to preach the Good News, to heal the broken-hearted and bring release for those bound as though imprisoned. That was the purpose of His First Advent, but the subsequent verses allude to the anointing also continuing in His Second Advent, namely:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

In other words, Jesus’ mission was to proclaim the ‘Year of God’s Favour’ across Judea and Galilee and even into Samaria. It was implicit that the ‘Day of God’s Vengeance’ would follow in due course, and the subsequent revelation Jesus was given into that momentous future event was recorded by John in ‘The Apocalypse’. BUT the reference to that dread ‘Day of the Lord’ in the whole of Isaiah 61 is miniscule – it’s only one tiny clause in a long very positive, uplifting sentence!  AND the chapter’s remaining nine verses continue in the very same vein! (Check it yourself in NIV-UK.)

Therefore, whilst they may be severe shaking and demonic darkness the light, love and favour not only continues but also increases enormously for all those who are in Christ!

So thank and praise the Lord for confirming this in what You shared with Sarah…

To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’? That’s the Big Ben question as the nation waits…

August is renowned as the ‘silly season’ for odd and weird stories because of the holiday period’s dearth of normal, newsworthy events. Yesterday’s banner headline shown below seems simply part of that season because of the Health & Safety aspects – but that belies the status of a significant symbol of our nation’s identity.

The disruption of our famous clock’s mechanism strikes at our heart but not necessarily for the reasons stated in the Telegraph, its editorial and news of MPs’ anger at being kept in the dark over details of the proposed work!  [Today: Theresa May says “It can’t be right for Big Ben to be silenced for four years”.]

Regular readers of this blog are well aware not only of Big Ben’s symbolic importance but also and more especially of the many words and dreams about it at the prophetical ‘midnight hour’. So whatever the outcome of the present rumpus, it won’t surprise the Lord for He could be in the discussions and use them to bring about His purposes, or else work around them to achieve His sovereign will for Britain, thereby getting us fully ‘in sync’ with His will. (As in the word for 2014-16 brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone in her ‘Clarion Call’.)

Tuesday 15 August ‘Final’ morning broadsheet edition (tap for digital version)

It wasn’t until later yesterday that I caught up with news and activity on this blog and was very pleased to notice a number of past posts had shot into the popular posts listing. So, I stuck them temporarily to the home page for quick reference and now replace them with this post.

A summary of some points which may be applicable should thus prove useful:

  • R Piercey 2016-17 – “…Interesting in view of the picture I received some years ago of the Lion of Judah hovering over Big Ben; his huge paw was about to hit the clock face, where the hands pointed at 2 minutes to midnight. (I somehow knew it was midnight rather than midday).” …I believe it’s now important to share more widely what Rosemary added. Upon phoning for permission to publish today she responded without any hesitation, “Absolutely! now’s the time!”…“A few notes on the picture that hit me this morning. Someone whose opinion I value gave me a word a few weeks ago that I was a General in the King’s army; this morning I was led to read the story of Gideon again, and was reminded of his requests from God for signs. I then asked the Lord for a sign that would confirm whether or not the “General” word was true. After a short time a very vivid picture came to me of a huge bowl suspended on 3 chains above the Houses of Parliament; the bowl swung in the winds of secularism and resulting godless laws. I felt the Lord saying that this was a bowl of his wrath, which of course is a recurrent theme in the Bible – bowl, cup etc. This is not to negate in any way the positive prophecies we are receiving; many of us know that the spiritual atmosphere has changed, and we are seeing remarkable answers to prayer in our country. Nevertheless we are also called to repent, especially for what has happened in the churches, and I feel a huge urgency for this; we are in danger of losing the blessings if we are simply going to rest on the blessings. This is vitally important and I feel there is no time to lose; the bowl is tipping, and we could feel the results at any time.”
  • RB/TPuccio, Feb 2017 – ‘Today, as I prepare this compilation I draw Tony’s attention to Rosemary’s reminder on the previous blog of her picture of Big Ben and he asks for my ‘take’ on this and “What’s the Lord saying to you?” Well I didn’t have time to even think and ask Him, but was just running with my spirit’s ‘gut instinct’ as a ‘joiner of prophetic dots’ (as Glasgow calls me). So I reply that I’m busy compiling this account and will seek Him later – BUT then get a quick nudge to add, “‘…immediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now! Tony replies, “Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.”
  • T Puccio March 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.’  
  • C Shamp June 2017 – Keep your eyes upon Big Ben something supernatural is about to be seen. As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say, “My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Please note full historical listing including relevance to the 2005 & 2017 terrorist attacks plus informative contributions in Dreams & Visions of Big Ben at the Midnight Hour. Also consider reading, Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben.

Let us take all those words received and delivered to the Lord in prayer and wait upon Him.

Lastly, it’s particularly fascinating the change in the clock’s chiming set for 21st August is one month to the day before Rosh Hashana, the ‘head of year’ for Jewish New Year 5778, with its unconnected relevance to Biblical End-times prophesied in  1 Thess 5:3 – ‘(The Day of the Lord will come…) while people are saying “Peace and Safety”…!!

Vision and report of change in N Korea’s president and people

We have a couple of encouraging developments relating to the major prophetic words of last January and April and a recent vision of North Korea’s president Kim Jon-ung.

First, the Telegraph’s report Kim-Jon-ung ‘no longer seen as god’ as worshiping North Koreans ‘place their faith elsewhere’.:

The extremely harsh treatment meted out to anyone practising anything other than the state’s form of communism and deification of its presidents has been confirmed by a defector who’s since become a member of the Seoul-based Worldwide Coalition to Stop Genocide in North Korea. According to the report,

 “Officially sanctioned persecution of people for religious reasons is still there and, I would say, even stronger than before”. But subtle changes are slowly becoming visible, said the defector, who declined to be named as he is active in assisting underground churches operating in the North.

“In the past, the people were told to worship the Kim family as their god, but many North Koreans no longer respect Kim Jong-un”, he said. “That means they are looking for something else to sustain their faith.

 “In some places, that has led to the emergence of shamens, but the Christian church is also growing and deepening its roots there”, he said.

“Even though people know they could be sent to prison – or worse – they are still choosing to worship, and that means that more cracks are appearing in the regime and the system”, he added.

Secondly, a Nebuchadnezzar-type vision and prophetic word on Kim Jong-ung and featuring two prominent Christians is recounted by Veronica West on 11 August.

The two seen praying with him are Bill Johnson of Bethel California and South African Rodney Howard-Browne.

NOTES:

Nuclear showdown with North Korea: Disastrous deals cut by Clinton and Obama resulted in possibility of NK’s 60 warheads!

An excellent reminder that Trump’s action are the consequence of previous presidents’ disastrous policies in dealing with dishonesty. (Read also Two Major Prophetical Words Relating to North Korea)

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

NK-KimJungUn

While a preemptive North Korean nuclear attack on the U.S. and/or America’s Pacific allies sounds like a plot ripped from my 2008 novel, Dead Heat, it may no longer be a fictional scenario.

U.S. intelligence agencies are now convinced that “North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power,”reports the Washington Post, based on a confidential analysis by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

“The United States calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong In,” notes the Post.

This week, Pyongyang threatened to attack the island of Guam with ballistic missiles that could be armed with nuclear weapons. With 160,000 residents and two U.S. military bases, the Pacific island territory now appears to be in Pyongyang’s crosshairs.

Kissinger is right on both counts

An informative insight into the Middle-East situation, but no improvement for Israel as PM Netanyahu says on Sunday 13 August, “Our policy is clear. We strongly object to the military entrenchment of Iran and its surrogates, led by Hizballah, in Syria, and we shall do what is necessary to guard Israel’s security. That is what we are doing.” (Debka)

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

For those who aren’t familiar with Henry Kissinger, he was the secretary of state during the late Nixon and Ford years, 1973-1977.

Dr. Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State (1973-1977)

He is considered by many to be the greatest secretary of state, in terms of statesmanship, of the last half of the twentieth century. He is the one who worked to open up China, to get America out of the Vietnam War, détente with the Soviet Union, and of course to engineer the Petrodollar system. Presidents and others have sought him for advice in the last four decades.

In this earlier post, he rightly believed that Iran was a greater threat than Islamic State (IS). Now in this Breitbart article he is quoted again as taking a position on IS as the power and territory of IS wanes:

“Most non-ISIS powers — including Shia Iran and the leading Sunni…

Fulfilled prophecies #10 & #13: a 6th time! – corruption in and fall of the EU

It’s time to remind ourselves of a couple of prophetic words of the many on the EU and Brexit and realise they continue to show the Lord’s hand at work in their fulfillment.

First, the awesome warning David Noakes delivered in November 2015 urging us to leave the EU (see UK/EU in/out #4). I’ve emphasised the more pertinent phrases:

“Nation of Britain, I have loved you with a love which has not ceased, despite the state of apostasy and degradation into which you have fallen. My anger towards those church leaders who have taught false things in my Name, and encouraged others to believe and act as they do, is intense and my judgment upon them will be severe. Yet I have compassion upon those who have been like sheep without godly shepherds; and my heart still longs to exercise mercy upon a nation whose forefathers upheld my Name and took my Word to the ends of the earth; a nation whose belief in the truth of my Word framed godly laws and inspired a culture of uprightness.

“Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

“Hear Me, O once godly nation and respond to my call, or you also will come to ruin in that same judgment of destruction. This is not my will for you, but you must choose the course which you will take. I urge you to respond to Me and choose life under my hand of discipline and protection, rather than death in the disaster which is even now coming upon Europe.”

Then in May 2016 in mulling over events I asked Is The Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? First UK, then USA – next EU??  It proved to be a ‘semi-conscious’ prophecy.

Both words quickly came into play, as in Fulfilled Prophecies #13 and #10 respectively – and more soon manifested (here, here and here). We now have yet another fulfillment – the 6th!!

Readers interested in Brexit may have kept abreast of developments regularly reported on Jonathan Ely’s excellent Facebook resource, Why Leave EU? There you’ll have noticed Poland’s objections to EU judicial reforms (Tusk threatens to kick Poland out of EU) and that Spain closes its border with Africa because the EU’s failure to stem the mass influx of migrants.  Also, Poland and Hungary form new eastern bloc ‘in bid to OVERTHROW Brussels‘ and professor Martin Goodwin claims President of European Commission ‘Junker is deeply worried’ Brussels is crumbling and EU is panicking.

And today’s Telegraph banner headline emblazoned across its wide front-page reads (tap/click for link), EU chiefs in expenses scandal.

The broadsheet’s inside double-page spread ‘How the EU tried to hide £500,000 bill for two months’ travel’ asks how much did each of the 28 Commissioners spend on travel? Deputy political editor Steve Swinford’s report opens by referring to an executive director of Access Info Europe’s attempt to show journalists from Eastern Europe and the Balkans about the availability of EU information,

‘When campaigners first asked the European Commission for details about the travel expense claims of the 28 commissioners in May 2014, they thought it would be a straightforward matter. “They told me (Helen Darbishire) they couldn’t give me the information because it was a question of privacy and cost. I was totally shocked”.

‘Three years and more than 190 requests for information later, the EU has finally relented and agreed to publish the data – two months worth from 2016…’

That’s just relating to travel over a short period – what about other expenses at other times? Also, it’s failed to produce properly audited accounts for far too many years – [PS: ‘the European Court of Auditors have refused to sign off the bloc’s accounts for over 20 years due to continued “material level of irregularity”!‘ – Asa Bennett.]

This new exposure is absolutely no surprise in view of the EU’s lack of accountability to the people it purports to represent – which is one reason why sensible Britons voted to get out!

I cannot but conclude this exposure is a part of the Lord’s judgement against the EU.

Prophetic visions of renewal for the Church in Britain

As with all prophetic words and visions this is for prayer and weighing with the Lord. It is brought by Yinka Oyekan, Senior Minister of The Gate church, Reading, courtesy of UK Prophetic Words:

PROPHETIC VISIONS FOR THE CHURCH

Extraordinary dream and Prophetic vision this morning 5th August:

Last night I had the most amazing dream and it continued in a Prophetic vision this morning. “I love my children”, father said; “My heart breaks and longs for communion with every one of my children”.

I saw the new hunger and a great awakening in the church. And father said to me

“I have made my will clear; I have trumpeted my purposes, and I’m gathering my sons and daughters who will attend to the will of the chief shepherd before they attempt to attend to the needs of the sheep. Many are lost, broken without a shepherd; millions are desperately seeking me and deserving of me, oh that the bride would make herself ready. I have humbled my church and now I will rebuild her, and she will wear white garments, and be clothed with my glory.”

I saw small communities which seemed unimportant to man but were important to God and filled with glory and their pastors who had poured out their lives for the sake of these seemingly unimportant communities, father says,

“Your reward is coming; be patient; you were hidden but now your works will be revealed by God, you might be small but you have always been important to me.

“The prayers of many princes of the church have been received, I have seen their tears and cries for mercy, But some had their ears covered; they would not hear; they would not see; they would not repent”;

heaven reminds you that he is still in the business of removing lampstands; repent so that times of refreshing and healing may come from heaven.

I saw those who are standing in the outpouring receiving new graces of healing, of mercy, graces of deliverance and of the prophetic; so many graces been poured out and father says,

“Align yourself; position yourself; gather all the lame, the sick, the dispossessed, the aliens and I will fill that place with such a sense of liberty the nations will hear about it, for where my spirit is I bring freedom.”

I saw father fitting feet with golden shoes; I saw them running as fast as lightning. I woke up this morning from an extraordinary dream in which father said he’s renewing the church and then laid out before me these extraordinary visions; my mind was racing with images that were so profound; I spent the last two hours in prayer for our church for our leadership teams; I encourage you to do the same for yours; it’s time to seek the face of God afresh.
