TONIGHT – prophetic pastor who died speaks on BBC South Today

Some may recall Revd Christopher Wickland’s prophetic messages posted on this blog, but hundreds have been praying for his recovery after an unexpected heart attack some weeks ago. His totally unexpected recovery has featured in national, local and overseas press as well as on radio; and his TV interview features on tonight’s BBC South Today!

Premier Christian News reports, ‘Rev Chris Wickland stopped breathing after he collapsed at a trampoline park he was attending in Southampton with his children. Staff members at the Flip Out centre performed CPR on the pastor and administered four electric shocks with a defibrillator after his heart stopped beating, at which point Wickland began breathing again and an ambulance arrived.

‘Wickland, who is the senior pastor of Living Word Pentecostal Church in Fareham told Premier that paramedics who arrived on the scene were amazed by his recovery: “In 24 years of work, they said they’ve never seen anyone come back after a fourth shock.”

‘He claims he was resurrected by the power of prayer. After his collapse his daughter contacted his wife Tracey who told the children “to pray for him immediately”.

“Then immediately my wife put it out onto the prayer network and our churches and it hit social media and just went out everywhere. So lots of other churches picked it up and started praying. For the next several days we had like literally hundreds of Christians all over the world and churches praying for us,” he added.

‘Wickland was rushed to hospital after the incident and put into an induced coma. He remained on life support for a number of days (being) unable to breathe independently. Doctors had warned Mrs Wickland his chances of survival were unlikely once he was taken off the ventilator and said if he was he’d likely suffer severe mental damage due to the lack of oxygen…’ (emphases added)

So we praise and thank you Lord of Lords and King of Kings for your answering prayers and blessing this dear family.

Frank Sui has fun with the Lord’s numbers too (two!)!!

You may recall Frank Sui’s meeting with Prime Minster Johnson in the lead-up to the General Election and the word he gave him from the Lord. I caught up yesterday with a couple of Veronika West’s prophecies and noted a personal aspect of number 22 that the Lord had pointed out to her and that the earlier one was timed at 12:12.

SO, I was amused upon reading what Frank had posted very early today on Facebook and grateful for his kind permission to republish (editorial formatting added):

‘In recent months I’ve been seeing a lot of double numbers on my phone, oven and even microwave while running – 12:12, 14:14, 15:15, 17:17, 21:21, 22:22 etc.

‘When I wrote the article about Boris Johnson I wrote it overnight, and the few times I looked at the time on the computer, they read ’01:01′, ’02:02′, ’03:03’, ’04:04’… I won’t count 05:05 because by 5am I was watching the clock by the seconds. 😂 I was like, “What is going on?” And the Lord said, “It all comes in twos!” In this new season, everything comes in twos.

‘Modern-day prophetic has a lot of jargon and you can pretty much predict without being prophetic. I hate that. So one of my goals in the beginning of this year was to make it through to March without mentioning “2020 Vision” – And guess what, I failed by the 3rd of January. The Lord said, “You really want to have a 2020 vision because I ‘am’ doing a new thing.”

He gave me a few Scriptures for this year, and notice they’re all in 2s.

2 Chronicles 20:20Trust in the Lord and you’ll be established, believe His prophets and you will prosper.

‘Habakkuk 2:2Write down the vision, make it plain so that he who reads may run with it.

‘Mark 2:22No-one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.

‘God is doing a new thing in 2020. We will be established if we trust Him, but we will prosper if we believe what He is saying through prophetic voices. (BTW, how many churches are still standing against Brexit for “social justice” reasons despite that every prophetic voice is shouting otherwise from the rooftops? Just sayin’!) If we want to prosper we need to get on-board with what He’s doing.

‘Then, in the light of knowing what He is doing, we need to have a vision for ourselves. And we need to write it down. What are we believing for? Make it plain, so that those around us can read and understand and stand with us in prayer.

‘Lastly, believing for new things is not enough. We need to position ourselves for them. We need new wineskin for new wine. What do we need to adjust in our lives to see these promises come to pass?

‘As for me, I have decided to take 40 days to focus on seeking God for this year. Without planning, I started at sundown on 2 January (there’s the number 2 again), and ending on the 11 [two ones, RB] February at sundown – which is effectively the 12th February. Paul Cain died a year ago on 12 Feb, and it was 7 Adar on Hebrew calendar, the day Moses died according to Jewish traditions. I’m just sayin’!

‘Paul Cain was a Moses figure for the end-time Stadium Revival vision, and there’s been a lot of talks about the Joshua Generation. When Moses dies, you know it’s time for a Joshua Generation to rise and take the Promised Land. (If you’re alive you’re part of this generation.) I’m just sayin’!

‘All the numbers, times and dates are falling into places in such perfect ways without planning. It’s up to you to decide whether God is speaking or not. I’m just sayin’!’

My reaction was to inform Frank of the prophetic word Leisa Ebere brought on October 2017, and which I’ve oft quoted: “2018, I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly ‘My Numbers’, such as dates, times and even denominations of money as I loose significant detail…”

Veronika West: doors opening to deeper realms but only for….

Once again in prophecies brought by Veronika West I find ‘numerical’ resonance and confirmation (as noted below) in this published on Monday 13 January:

THE “DOOR” THAT LEADS TO GREATER REALMS AND DEEPER DIMENSIONS OF HIS GLORY…”BUT WATCH! FOR ONLY THOSE WITH CLEAN HANDS AND A PURE HEART CAN ENTER IN”, says the Spirit of God.

Well today I was in a powerful meeting where I was gathered with some regional Prophets and Intercessors seeking the face of God for the Year ahead….and during worship I was taken into the realm of the Spirit where TWO DOORS appeared before me!

“TWO DOORS…OLD AND NEW…”!
The first door I saw was wooden and looked ramshackle and I knew by revelation that the wooden door represented an OLD ERA….and I watched as the Door was dismantled and totally demolished…BUT as the DOOR OF THE OLD SEASON disintegrated before me so a NEW AND GREATER DOOR suddenly appeared in its place…A DOOR WHICH WAS MADE OF SOLID GOLD, and above the DOOR WERE THE NUMBERS ‘2020’…!

Now as I looked at the numbers (2020) immediately the Spirit of God spoke to me saying, “A NEW ERA…BEHOLD THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO THE GREATER REALMS AND DEEPER DIMENSIONS OF MY GLORY”..!

D…’OO’…R…!
As I heard the voice of the Spirit of Revelation speak those words, I saw the word ‘DOOR’ come up before me and the letters of the word began to move and shift and the two ‘O’s came together forming what looked like “TWO EYES” and then suddenly I heard these words, “COME UP HIGHER AND SEE….FOR EVEN GREATER VISION WILL BE RELEASED TO THOSE WHO WILL COME UP HIGHER”….and then I saw the letter ‘D’ stand before me and I heard these words, “DOUBLE PORTION, DIVINE ENCOUNTERS, THE GREATER REALMS AND DEEPER DIMENSIONS OF MY GLORY”…then I saw the letter ‘R’ begin to SPIN…violently around and around and I heard these words, “AND NOW AN ACCELERATION OF KINGDOM RESTORATION AND REFORMATION IS TAKING PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”..!

“2020; 22….00…”!
As I heard those words my vision was shifted and again I found myself standing before the DOOR OF SOLID GOLD and the numbers “2020” were brought before me and as I looked at the numbers they too began to shift and change and the TWO ZERO’s also became TWO EYES ‘00’ and I heard the Spirit say, “AN NEW AND GREATER ERA OF REVELATION THROUGH VISION, FOR EYES HAVE NOT SEEN, EARS HAVE NOT HEARD AND MINDS HAVE NOT CONCEIVED WHAT I HAVE PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE ME”.., then I saw both TWO’s coming together ‘22’ and I heard these words, “A KIAROS TIME, AN APPOINTED TIME OF GREATER REVEALING, YES! FOR THE DEEP AND HIDDEN MYSTERIES OF MY GLORY SHALL BE RELEASED TO THOSE WHO HAVE EYES TO SEE”..!

FROM A MERE GLIMPSE TO GAZING…!
On hearing those words I looked again at the SOLID GOLD DOOR which was slightly ajar, and (my eyes were able to catch BUT A GLIMPSE OF THE GLORY which lay behind the heavy SOLID GOLD DOOR) a BRIGHT, WHITE AND RADIANT LIGHT shone through the small crack in the door and as I stepped a little closer my right hand came up to touch the DOOR and suddenly the Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying, “BEHOLD THE DOOR OF REVELATION…BUT ONLY THOSE WITH CLEAN HANDS AND A PURE HEART SHALL ENTER IN…..FOR MANY HAVE HAD A MERE GLIMPSE OF MY GLORY BUT NOW THEY SHALL GAZE UPON MY GLORY…. WATCH! FOR IN THIS REALM DIVINE EXCHANGES ARE TAKING PLACE, SUPERNATURAL CHANGE AND TRANSFORMATION COMES IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE”..!

CLEAN HANDS…PURE HEARTS..!
As the Spirit spoke I immediately began to take INVENTORY OF MY OWN HEART….I cried out…”FATHER GIVE ME CLEAN HANDS AND PURIFY MY HEART THAT I MAY ENTER IN, TAKE ME HIGHER, LEAD ME DEEPER, I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH A MERE GLIMPSE OF YOUR GLORY BUT MY HEART’S DESIRE IS TO GAZE UPON YOUR GLORY, THAT I MAY BE CHANGED AND FULLY TRANSFORMED, FATHER…TAKE ME HIGHER, FROM ONE LEVEL OF GLORY TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF YOUR GLORY, CLEANSE AND PURIFY ME THAT I MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE DOOR OF REVELATION TO TASTE AND SEE”..!

CARRIERS OF THE FIRES..OF HIS GLORY..!
No sooner had I prayed those words, I saw A FIRE come before me, A CONSUMING FIRE….and I heard the Spirit say, “NO LONGER WILL MY PEOPLE BE SATISFIED WITH JUST SEEING THE FIRES OF MY GLORY, AND FEELING THE FIRES OF MY GLORY BUT NOW THEY WILL STEP INTO THE FIRES OF MY GLORY, FOR LONG ENOUGH THEY HAVE BEEN SPECTATORS OF MY GLORY, NOW I CALL THEM TO BE PARTAKERS OF MY GLORY, FOR A FRESH BAPTISM OF FIRE SHALL FALL AND THEY SHALL BECOME CARRIERS OF THE FIRES OF MY GLORY TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH”...!

Note; another powerful Vision I shared concerning 2020 that has interesting parallels to the encounter I had today.

RB Note:

Am amazed that once again number ’22’ features prominently for readers may recall my many references to this as though it and its combination with ’12’ are personal keys – see Fun With God’s Numbers – And He Joins In The Play! plus other instances and note number of comments in above image from Veronika’s Fb at 20:02 tonight.

The depth of the five scripture passages of the 2nd Signpost — Mark Davidson

After learning about a ‘chiasmus’ in the Book of Jonah during Sunday’s service, it’s note-worthy how Mark Davidson explains this literary-spiritual device within certain prophetic passages on current events in the Middle-East…

While we are waiting for the next significant news item from Iran and the Middle East, it seemed good to have a review of the Scripture passages all having a say in the Second Signpost. This is meant to remind us that the Second Signpost, the invasion by Iran of the Middle East, is more […]

Leisa Ebere: the UK’s four years of transition

‘Dear Richard, This is a dream about the UK the Lord gave me over the weekend. The Lord showed me that the UK is in tremendous transition and that we need to be declaring and praying for the next four years, so that the Prophetic horseman can emerge, and ride across the nation, and rally the people to rise up and take their positions of authority, so that the UK can fulfill its God-given destiny!

THE UNITED KINGDOM ICE-TRANSITION PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 18th January 2020

‘I had a dream and I was standing on the stone steps of the fortress of the Lord, and I looked a far distance and saw an iced-over body of water, and I saw that the UK was trapped under the ice. Then Jesus walked out of the door of the fortress and He took my hand, and I said to Him, “Jesus, can you not free the UK from that dark, cold place?” He then looked at me with compassion in His eyes, and said:

“Dear daughter of Zion, we must wait for spring before the ice can thaw, for it is not yet time for the bringing forth of that nation.”

‘We then walked closer to the iced-over body of water, hand in hand, and I was able to see that there were cracks in the ice and that fisherman were sitting and fishing through holes in the ice, and that some were able to catch some fish from the ice holes there. And then Jesus said:

“Be not distressed little one, for there are men and women of our Kingdom who are able to bring those struggling in that dark place to safety, despite the harsh conditions. And four years of transition shall come to pass by My Spirit and will impact the government of the UK, before fire will start to melt the ice and this nation starts to rise to assume its God-given destiny. And nations directly connected to the UK will also be reached from underneath the ice,” said the Lord. “Angelic hosts, who are my faithful watchers work with appointed saints during this time to keep these nations alive, My Child. The mighty voices of those chosen, will need to be heard these four years as prophetic messengers on fast horses emerge from the ice and rally My People to come into My Presence without hindrance. Then, there shall be a shaping of the nation of the UK, as a transitional apostolic positioning takes place,” declared the Lord.

Bless you,

Leisa Ebere: an anointing for prophetic code-breaking

Those who are familiar with this blog and my awareness of and occasional reporting on biblical numbers and codes will appreciate this email of Friday from Leisa. She writes,

‘The Lord has shown me that He is raising up Prophets with mighty seer anointings to unlock mysteries, as revealed by the power of the Holy Spirit from the Heavenly Realm, and here is the Word He gave me:

THE PROPHETIC CODE-BREAKER ANOINTING PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere, 13th January 2020

‘I had a dream and the Lord took me back in time, to the year 1948, and He showed me a man called, William Branham. And I asked the Lord, “What are you showing me about this man, Lord?” And He said:

“I used this man to help to lead people into a new depth of understanding for healing, deliverance and restoration: which caused a new architectural design to be released into My Kingdom upon the Earth, and the minds of My sons and daughters were renewed as a ‘Latter Rain Movement’ was released across America.”

‘And then the Lord showed me a room full of telephone operators, connecting party lines through different parts of the country in many nations: as happened back in the post World War 2 era. Then I heard the Lord say:

“I am about to release another great move of My Spirit, where hearts and minds will be illuminated by My truth. But there is a ‘disconnect’ to the things of My Spirit at this present time as people want to come into My Presence; yet they are trying to bring in watchers, listeners and influences of the world with them through an inclusion of party line influences, which I cannot permit. These man-pleasers wish to keep the peace by agreeing with sin, and this compromise brings in the legal right of the enemy to block their destiny. Voices from these party lines both curse and distract My people from standing in their places of authority, My Daughter. But fear not,” said the Lord, “For I am bringing in a new supernatural data protection anointing by My Spirit, and My Words shall be encrypted, as My Prophetic peoples around the Earth are then called by My mandate to be My prophetic ‘Code Breakers.’ For the spoilers sent from the enemy shall rush around in confusion as a new day is birthed,” said the Lord, ‘And I shall release a power of the Prophetic like none that has ever been known before.”

Leisa Ebere, Torchlighters International Ministry

RB Note:

Interesting that the Lord took Leisa back to the time of my first year and showing her a preacher whom many misunderstood and accused of promoting ‘New Age’ ideas!  Yet I recall renowned prophet Bobby Conner telling about a vision in which he was shocked to see William Branham alongside the Lord Jesus. Bobby protested about his presence but the Lord rebuked Bobby by saying, “He’s My faithful servant!”

Also, having repented of, laid down and died to my ‘old-life’ then it is for the Lord to use and resurrect if He desires what I’ve forgotten. One of those aspects was a fascination with the history of ciphers and codes, as outlined in my personal Bio.

Leisa Ebere: Britain’s repentance needed to free Hong Kong into its destiny

HONG KONG REVELATIONS

given to Leisa Ebere on 10th January 2020

I was asked recently by a dear saint from Hong Kong to seek God for his homeland, and I entered into a deep place of revelation and it felt as if I was suspended in air, hovering over the land, as the Lord showed me what is happening in Hong Kong, and what is holding that place under a curse of the enemy.

In the vision, the Lord showed me poisonous tea leaves, soldiers, and a woman giving birth to a child named hope and good fortune. And I saw that the destiny of Hong Kong hangs in the balance, and that the tea leaves signify that the old ways of magic and superstition are still heavily in force there, and is poisoning the minds of its inhabitants.

Also, I saw that soldiers were marching over the top of crowds of protesters. And I saw that the underground Christian church within Hong Kong is trying to birth a new destiny for their land…. but that there is a curse upon the land, due to mass murders and addictions caused by the opium trade which was perpetrated around the earth, due to the greed of British government officials over Hong Kong in the mid-19th century.

God revealed to me then, “That this must be rectified by the British people by repenting before Him of the great sin that was committed against the land of Hong Kong.”

I also saw that God is aligning Himself with the prayers and petitions of His people, but that the curse must be broken in order for the land to be in a position of blessing and also, for it to fulfill its God-given destiny. The Lord showed me by the Spirit that His heart is for Hong Kong, but that steps must be taken by the remnant church to set it free.

Veronika West: NEW E-R-A = Expect Radical Advancement

LOVE this word as it directly relates to my hearing “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!” upon opening my Bible to check the wheat and tares parable and which kick-started my writing on End-times 11 years ago, as told in The Endgame is now in play.:

NEW E•R•A….”EXPECT•RADICAL•ADVANCEMENT OF MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”..says God

Today while worshipping the King of Glory I heard the Spirit say this…

”DAUGHTER IN THIS NEW ERA THERE SHALL BE A GREATER OUTPOURING OF MY GLORY WHICH WILL BRING ABOUT A DIVINE DISTINCTION WITHIN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WATCH! AS A GREAT SEPARATION WILL TAKE PLACE, WHEAT AND CHAFF SHALL BE SIFTED AS MY KINGDOM ADVANCES WITH GREATER ACCELERATION AND MOMENTUM IN THE DAYS AHEAD, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU THIS NEW ERA SHALL TURN THE NATIONS UPSIDE-DOWN AND INSIDE-OUT…”, as I heard those words I saw the letters E•R•A and I heard the Spirit say, “ERA… EXPECT•RADICAL•ADVANCEMENT OF MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”

Then I heard the sound of the letter ‘E’ and then the Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying, “MY ECCLESIA SHALL ARISE AND SHINE WITH GREATER EXPECTATION WHICH WILL BRING TO BIRTH EVEN GREATER MANIFESTATIONS OF MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS…WATCH AND PRAY MY BELOVED!…FOR THIS WILL BE AN ERA OF THE EXTREME, THE EXTRAORDINARY AND EVEN GREATER EXPLOITS, MY KINGDOM SHALL EXPAND AND INCREASE, MANY SHALL RECEIVE SUPERNATURAL ELEVATION, DIVINE EXCHANGES AND DEEPER ENCOUNTERS WITH MY GLORY. HA! GET READY…FOR GREATER DEMONIC EXPOSURES WILL BE SEEN BOTH IN MY HOUSE AND THE HOUSES OF GOVERNMENT, SUDDEN AND SEVERE EARTHQUAKES AND ERUPTIONS BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND NATURALLY…SHALL TAKE PLACE THAT WILL SHAKE AND SHIFT THE NATIONS AND BRING MANY TO THEIR KNEES…”,

Then I heard the sound of the letter ‘R’ echo in the realm of the Spirit, and I heard these words, “REPENTANCE AND THE RETURNING OF THE PRODIGALS, RESTORATION, RECOMPENSE AND KINGDOM REFORMATION SHALL BE SEEN, EVEN GREATER REVELATION AND VISION SHALL BE RELEASED TO THE SURRENDERED ONES, GREATER RICHES AND WEALTH TRANSFER SHALL BREAK THE STRANGLEHOLD OF LACK AND A POVERTY MINDSET. WATCH! BELOVED AS A MIGHTY REMNANT WILL RISE IN RADICAL OBEDIENCE AND SACRIFICE PREPARED AND EMPOWERED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS, WATCH AND STAY VIGILANT IN THIS HOUR…AS DIVINE RETRIBUTION AND THE RULE AND REIGN OF MY RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENTS AND JUSTICE IS EXECUTED IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, BUT! FEAR NOT AS REFORMATION AND REVIVAL SPRINGS FORTH AND DIVINE REVERSALS AND SEVEN-FOLD RESTITUTION COMES TO THOSE WHO WALK UPRIGHTLY….”,

Then I saw the letter ‘A’ in the realm of the Spirit and the Spirit of Lord said, “LISTEN! FOR THE SOUND OF MY TRUMPET HERALDS A GREAT AWAKENING IN THE EARTH AS MY END-TIME ARMY ARISES WITH GREATER APOSTOLIC AND PROPHETIC POWER AND AUTHORITY TO SHIFT AND RESHAPE MANY NATIONS, SEE! FOR A DIVINE ACCELERATION WILL BE UPON THE LIPS OF MY PEOPLE AS I TAKE THEM HIGHER AND DEEPER, DAUGHTER…WATCH! AS THE SECRET PLACE BECOMES AN EVEN THINNER PLACE AS MANY WILL BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE GREATER ANGELIC VISITATIONS, AND IN AWE THEIR MOUTHS SHALL BE OPENED WIDE I SHALL FILL THEM WITH ROYAL ANNOUNCEMENTS AND DECREES THAT WILL CARRY THE WEIGHT OF MY GLORY UPON THEM. EVEN NOW THERE IS A HOLY HUNGERING AND THIRSTING THAT IS INVADING THE ATMOSPHERE CREATING A TIPPING POINT FOR GREATER BREAKTHROUGH, SET-BACKS SHALL BECOME DIVINE SET-UPS, A LAUNCHING-PAD TO EVEN GREATER KINGDOM ADVENTURES AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT. YES! MY HAND NOW MOVES TO BRING FORTH DIVINE CONNECTIONS AND STRATEGIC APPOINTMENTS FOR A GREATER KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT IS NOW TAKING PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”…!

Faith and flaming arrows against devilish inferno (Red Sky in the Morning)

A fascinating read from ‘Jo-Blogs’ in New Zealand:

As a wall of fire reported to be 60 feet high and moving at 90 kilometres an hour bore down from the Mallacoota wharf, where thousands of people huddled for safety, David Jeffery used his faith.

Twenty Twenty – on this New Year and New Decade

David Chapman, author of several postings and papers on this blog kindly offers his following reflections and insights, or spiritual ‘sightings’ – can’t resist play on words to do with light and seeing. Dave notes, “Some obvious things in this one, but hopefully some confirmatory and useful things too”.:

TWENTY TWENTY

by Dave Chapman

There are some things I believe we may look to see coming into focus in this Year of 2020, and indeed this 20’s decade.

First, a ‘Look’ at 20/20 Vision

This phrase is one we connect with ‘having good eyesight’. We can see at a certain distance (20 feet) what is expected of us – normal eyesight. It provides a necessary sharpness of vision.

There is a clarity to the object/person, away from us. We can see clearly now. People who have cataracts look through a mist. But when the cataracts are removed there is a restoration of sight, sharpness, and clarity.

This is one thing God will be doing for His people this year. He will be giving the clarity of seeing things as they really are. Removing the veil from before our eyes. The ability to see and to discern in the spiritual realm, between good and evil (Hebrews 5 v 14). To see what kind of ‘spirit’ is at work.

One of the great lacks in the Body of Christ has been the ‘gift of Discernment of spirits’ (1 Corinthians 12 v 10). I believe the operation of this will be greatly sharpened this year. To discern/see what the enemy is doing among God’s people will be identified and rooted out. Conversely, what God is doing will be recognised, hosted, or encouraged.
It is important not to judge by the outward, but to see what is behind things. “The Lord looks on the heart”, as He said to Samuel about who was to be anointed King, (1 Sam 16 v 7), and Jesus said to the Jews around Him, “judge not according to the appearance but judge righteous judgement” (John 7 v 24). We have to see with different eyes to those of the flesh, we need to see with our spiritual eyes, and this is a year for that to take place. We need to see behind the curtain of the flesh.

Insight

Then again the 20/20’s speak of ‘In-sight’. It looks like this will continue through the decade too! I’ll apply this to what, and how, we need to walk with God. With insight as to who He really is, His greatness, His mercy; the abundance of His love toward us; the workings of His grace within us, both for us and through us. For insight as to the ways of God, and of man.

Having insight as to who we are in Him. Revelation of our Sonship; our Royal Priesthood, and what that means in practice; of what He has placed by His Spirit inside each of us for His individual callings on our lives; discovering what we each are individually to give ourselves to as a result; of where our energies need to be applied. Of greater appreciation of His righteousness in us, and of His righteous clothing upon us, and of the glorious call to Holiness in our walk with Him.

Foresight

This is to do with being able to see ahead, by revelation; a sense in our spirit, an inner ‘knowing’ of what is ahead, so that we can make the appropriate plans, adjust our schedules and make the necessary practical alterations and adjustments that mean we are ready for when what we are preparing for arrives upon us! For fresh oil in, and with, our Lamps too, as a Bride being prepared for Him.

It is good being able to see ahead, but application is needed for it to be of any use!
It means an even greater reliance on the prophetic than we may already have. The early church had this in abundance. Foresight of the coming famine in the world (Acts 11 v 28); the church was led through prophetic revelation, advanced greatly even – as with Paul and Barnabas being set apart for their callings, as in Antioch ( Acts 13 v 1).
There will be greater revelation concerning the days we are living in too; of how to live in this present world; and of how to apply ourselves to walking worthily of His calling; to be the lights God has called us to be.

A Year – even Decade – of Openings

Being able to see the openings He places before us. Like Jacob who was made Ready after 20 years, to Return to the Land. We shall be seeing this at this time, as we as a Nation ‘return to the land of our fathers’, just as Jacob was told by the Lord “Return to the Land of your fathers….” (Gen 31 v 3). We, as a Nation, are on the way to return to that which the Fathers of our Nation founded here. We have served too long as if in and from a foreign land, and we will Reclaim our heritage – that which the Lord laid out for us – and established in the Land millenia ago.

On parting company with his uncle he said “This 20 years I have been with you….” (Gen 31 v 38), and, “I served you 14 years for your two daughters and 6 years for your cattle” (v 41). And…he did not leave empty handed, but rather well provided for!

Solomon was 20 years building his house and the Temple (1 Kings 9 v 10), and at the end of these 20 years there was a Readiness for a new era of blessing; for prosperity like never before; expansion; for progress and protection. He of course wrote the Book of Proverbs – the 20th Book in our Bible! It’s wisdom recorded there will be vital for us this new decade, as “the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ” (Eph 1 v 17) is poured out upon us. Indeed this will be accompanied by “the spirit of the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11 v 2), which is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom (Proverbs 1 v 7, and 9 v 10).

And of Opportunities

Being 20 years old was also the age at which the young men were enlisted in Israel’s army, “all those twenty and above” (Numbers 1 v 45). They were of an age to be ready, indeed responsible, to defend their new nation, and to further its cause. Spiritual warfare will no longer be left to the older generation, but will become the responsibility of all those who are beyond the ‘student age’, spiritually speaking. Basically, if they are among those who are committed to the Lord, they will ‘get signed up’ from now on, into the soldier mentality; and becoming warriors for the Lord! Is there not a cause? Yes, yes, there certainly is!

Time to Rebuild

Ezra enlisted all those from the tribe of Levi above the age of 20 to Rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem after they had returned from captivity in Babylon ( Ezra 3 v 8). These 2020’s will be the time to rebuild our Nation. A time to restore what has been broken, naturally and spiritually. A time when the presence of the Lord can be returned to our Land in a way we have not known for decades.

These things excite me in spirit. I believe we are in for one of the best times we have ever known. Not without conflict, of course, but with readiness, and equipped to be able to triumph!

Bible Update: Red flag flies over Mahdi’s mosque: Apocalypse’s 2nd horseman may now have its sword!

ESSENTIAL READING: Mark Davidson brings what may be the most important insight you may read on the immediate aftermath of America taking decisive, defensive action against a regime that is actually hell-bent on bringing about the End of the World, as covered here on Richard’s Watch in many postings under the Mahdi tag.

It’s absolutely imperative ALL Christians – especially those in leadership – know about the eschatalogical impulse behind the Iranians engineering such a conflict in order to bring about the return of Shi’ite Islam’s 12th ‘hidden imam’, followed en-train by Jesus!!

For a fuller grasp of this dangerous doctrine browse through the above tag, starting with my blog of nearly 7 years ago Iranian Leader’s End-Times Declaration.

I never thought I would be writing an article like this, for I had never thought one single event could equate to the second horseman being made ready to make men slay one another. There are reports from Twitter and, at this point, only British tabloids such as the Express, Metro, and Sun, that something […]

‘God-smacked’ – just read Lana Vawser’s word of Christmas Eve!!

In spending the full day on blogging and FB messages plus trying to sort out pc security issue, I’m getting trying to get through my 100+ emails of the past 10 days only to now come across this one from Lana Vawser issued on 24th December…and to what did I refer in my first blog of this New Year 2020?  ‘My contemplation of Genesis 1:0 – that’s right, you read right – before ‘The Beginning’,’  which has been my nightly practice for  going to sleep!!

Bye ’til next week and be mightily blessed…

I HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE LORD AND HE SHOWED ME LARGE BOOKS CALLED ‘BOOKS OF BEGINNINGS’

‘At the start of last week I had an encounter with the Lord and He showed me large books and on the front of the book it said “BOOKS OF BEGINNINGS”. The Lord showed me that in this new era there are going to be many BEGINNINGS.

BEGINNINGS: the point in time or space at which something begins.
