God is moving across nations – The Land of Cherry Blossoms Prophecy

In his message to Fleet Baptist Church on Sunday, visiting guest speaker John Arnott spoke about Holy Spirit’s presence manifesting in power in churches across Russia, Siberia, Mexico and Brazil, as He did in that morning’s service.

It’s notable how that news fits with what Leisa Ebere says in her email of Friday on her dreaming many times in the last few months on how Father God is reshaping nations, and thus positioning and readying His people for Revival.

For example, whilst in Strasbourg Leisa dreamed of a French couple unknown to her, but God gave her their names and where to find them. She “released the prophetic dream as it contained both direction and encouragement,” stressing, “not to leave France as He has work for you to do.” She’s since learned that Father, “opened up tremendous doors for this couple in high-ranking places…”

Also, last week He gave her this dream about the nation of Japan:

THE LAND OF THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere, 19 June 2019

The Lord says: “The marshlands that have been allowed to take precedence in the spirit realm shall no longer have the upper hand across the nation of Japan and many nations of the Earth. For I am releasing a stabilizing anointing of My Spirit in the Land of the cherry blossoms, to cause the shifting ground to stand still; as My People rise to stand in their appointed places. The harassment of the enemy shall be halted and fertile ground be established,” says the Lord.

“Heed not the calculations of man, for only I hold the keys to the future. A mighty war cry shall be heard, as I rally My People to perform mighty exploits in the days ahead; and visionaries shall receive clarity and lead My People to victory in that place. The dark habitation which has been the continual frustration of My People in Japan shall be a former thing that passes away,” says the Living God. “For better days for My Remnant are at hand,” says the Lord. “But the breaking of the cast-iron fixtures formed and shaped by man must begin,” says the Lord, “for I shall have no other gods before Me. Receive My Freedom and Receive My Blessings,” says the Lord, “as you choose to walk a new path of righteousness. Break forth with singing, My sons and daughters, for I am sending delivering angels to avenge your pain,” says the Lord of Hosts.

GPS #34.1: Discern carefully between the two winds

Digital Globe with Hand by Watcharakun, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net

In re-blogging the two visions perceived by Tony Puccio last Wednesday and Thursday I referred to the latter, of a tornado or whirlwind affecting churches by stripping them to their foundations, as coincidentally following a related one posted by Mary Carpenter Burt (Word and Spirit International Ministries) on Facebook group Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival. (Tony assures me he doesn’t access Fb for work-related reasons.)  Mary kindly permits to republish what she received from the Lord:

“There are 2 winds blowing, says the Lord, “My Wind and the other. Discern between the two. Unless you ‘see’ and hear’ in and by My Spirit, you will be carried away by the wrong wind.

“Take time to ‘wait’ on Me. Do not be so quick to embrace. ‘Wait’ and again I say ‘wait’. You ‘feel’ but you do not ‘know’. When you hear the ‘call’ then respond. But unless you learn to ‘wait’, you will not ‘hear’ and you will not be in ‘position’ to catch My Wind. I need to take My people to another place of intimacy where My Breath becomes their life. For you see, My Wind is Breath and the other death. Wait I say, for My Breath and live.”

Mary Carpenter Burt, 18th June 2019.

Footnotes:
  1. Now all three ‘God-incidental’ reports, or God’s ‘Global Prophecy Signals’, are available I’ve renumbered their titles in sequence of receipt. So, although posted last, this word of last Tuesday is first, making Tony’s of Thursday second and then  Veronika’s of Friday is third – it may prove helpful to re-read them in sequence.
  2. Reading an earlier contact from Mary clarifying a word her father Arthur carried since 1937, I note my blog on this refers to a ‘Two Winds’ prophecy and wherein I write, ‘The tornado forces of that First Wind could be like…’.

Warning to churches that quench The Holy Spirit (GPS #34.3)

Further to the vision Tony Puccio had on Thursday about the effect of the whirlwind of God upon churches, Veronika West brings detailed confirmation on Friday 21st June:

“WARNING TO THE CHURCH WHO DARES TO QUENCH THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD”

I hear the Spirit say, “WATCH AND PRAY, BE ALERT AND SOBER IN THESE DAYS, FOR MANY HAVE BECOME SO CONDITIONED AND CONTROLLED BY RELIGIOUS SPIRITS THAT THEIR SPIRITUAL EYES AND EARS HAVE BECOME BLIND AND DEAF TO THE MIRACULOUS MANIFESTATIONS OF MY GLORY THAT IS OPERATING IN THE MIDST OF THEM, SOME HAVE EVEN SOUGHT TO BIND THE WORKS OF MY SPIRIT, SHUTTING DOWN AND SHUTTING OUT THE VOICE OF MY FAITHFUL PROPHETS. WATCH! FOR THE PLACES WHERE THE RIVERS OF MY GLORY ONCE FLOWED BRINGING FORTH NEW LIFE, FREEDOM AND FRUITFULNESS WILL NOW BECOME BARREN PLACES, DESOLATION AND DEATH WILL BE THEIR PORTION. WATCH! 

“FOR HE WHO FEARS THE LIVING GOD SHALL SURELY SEE THE WONDERS OF MY GLORY AND BE TRANSLATED AND TRANSFORMED, BUT HE WHO FEARS MAN SHALL SEE MY GLORY DEPART AND IT SHALL NEVER RETURN AND THE FRUIT OF THEIR HANDS SHALL BE TURNED TO DUST THAT SHALL BE CARRIED AWAY BY THE WHIRLWINDS OF MY SPIRIT”, says God.

Visions of England ablaze – and a holy whirlwind (GPS #34.2)

aurora-uk_2192580k_Image credit Telegraph

May I offer the following visions for your weighing with the Lord. Readers may recall previous posts on dreams and visions (eg. on Big Ben) received by Tony Puccio, a resident of Tucson, Arizona, on what he believes the Lord is about to do in England. Here’s the two latest:

1. ENGLAND ABLAZE, ANOTHER VISION (19th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I saw the following vision.

‘Imagine, if you will, the Olympic runner who runs with the torch and at the end of his/her run lights the flame for the beginning of the games.

‘With that said I saw England and it was dark. Then I saw what seemed to be Olympic runners seemingly descending from the sky each holding a torch. Again remember the ultimate purpose of the runner was to light the fire signaling the beginning of the Olympic games. However, in the Olympics only one lights a fire. In the vision, as I stated above, was dark but there were cauldrons, many of them. Each individual carrying a torch would use that torch to light the cauldron and that part of England would be lit. This was repeated by the other runners until all of England was ablaze.’

NB: This timing is interesting because it was 7 years ago when the Olympic Torch was carried throughout Great Britain & Northern Ireland for 70 days ahead of the Olympic Games of 2012.  In order to cleanse its pagan influence, it was preceded by an open-top bus on which praise and worship was sung, in which we participated as told here. Many readers may recall the two visions of fires Jean Darnall experienced in 1967 of groups of believers across Britain being struck by lightning bolts. Tony confirms the vision specifically relates to England alone in the UK. This is especially encouraging in view of what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2013 of its need to get in sync with the Lord’s purposes.

2. ENGLAND’S CHURCHES (20th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I once again was shown England. This time however, I saw what we would call in the States a tornado. This was a whirlwind that had both direction and purpose. I watched as the whirlwind would pass by a church and the church literally would be sucked into the whirlwind leaving the foundation exposed. This was repeated many times. This to me is reminiscent of Ezekiel prophesying in chapter 13 about the Lord tearing down the wall and exposing its foundation.’

Again, ‘coincidental’ timing is interesting in view of a posting dated 18th June in a Facebook Group and which I hope to be able to republish. 

Leisa Ebere: Signposts of Revival Prophecy

In her email of Saturday Leisa writes, “Please find a further Prophetic Word the Lord has given me on 12 June 2019 to encourage His people. Revival is so near and we must fervently and expectantly pray in this next great wave of His Spirit. Hallelujah!”

SIGNPOSTS OF REVIVAL PROPHECY

“The goodwill of harbingers is at hand. And so seven announcements shall be coming forth and released in a series of presences of My Spirit. For clearly signposts of revival shall appear in habitable spaces born of My Spirit and I shall release them upon My People to confirm My Will,” says the Lord:

1 – An authority to smite the enemy. 

2 – A song of deliverance to envelope the United Kingdom.

3 – Radiant & Overshadowing Miracles across several nations.

4 – A Spatial Awakening of the Body of Christ. This space inhabited by My Remnant shall be occupied, says the Lord of Hosts.

5 – Breezes shall turn into High Winds as conviction and weeping causes massive salvation numbers across many nations.

6 – A son of the Royal House of Windsor shall preach the gospel.

7 – A sanctification of many in the political arena across the UK, France and the USA shall come to pass.

“The extremities of man are shackled,” says the Lord, “as a spirit of deception keeps them tied to worldly injustices. Rise up My people and recognise My stamp of authority upon your lives. I have not called you to be ineffective, shy and retiring; but mighty through Me. Let the equipping begin as My Spirit goes forth,” says the Lord of Hosts.

This was followed directly by UK Nationwide Circuit Prophecies; the first of which for 2018 promises the Lord will give prophets “the ability to see clearly My numbers” – and Fulfilled Prophecy #38 refers!

Vision of rug pulled from under EU worshipers’ feet

Dave Hood kindly permits me to publish another of his posts, as published on FB group Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival:, and brings most illuminating insights upon current, as based upon Biblical, events:

OVERTURNED

About 8 weeks ago whilst praying regarding Britain, the Lord gave me a picture. I saw a number of men standing on a ‘narrowish’ carpet, almost in line behind one another, in ones or twos. There were about 20 of them, but there could have been more. They were standing facing east and they seemed to be worshiping.

I knew immediately that this scenario was connected to the current political struggle within our nation, which included Brexit.

With help, I discovered that their facing east was a very important detail. It is connected to Ezekiel 8:16 – ‘And He bringeth me in unto the inner court of the house of Jehovah, and lo, at the opening of the temple of Jehovah, between the porch and the altar, about twenty-five men, their BACKS toward the temple of Jehovah, and their faces eastward, and they are bowing themselves eastward to the sun.’

I understood most of these men represented the EU, and that a small portion of this group were from our nation, Great Britain. Through Israel, the Lord God gave to man His calendar for worship, which is based upon the lunar cycle. But through the church, man introduced a different calendar, a solar calendar, which is pagan in origin, focused on the sun.

By facing the sun, in order to worship it, these men had turned their back on the true worship of the True Son, and they were now looking towards Baal, the god whose presence and power underpins their political system. It is this system, with its structures empowered by its false gods, which now controls the lives and purposes of its peoples.

I then heard the Lord say, “I will pull the rug out from underneath them”

Suddenly, seemingly without any delay, I saw Him place His own hands at two corner ends of the rug/carpet and, with a pronounced jerk, He pulled out this rug from under the feet of these men.

This caused the rug to disappear and each and every one of them landed flat on their backs, in a heap, as their legs gave way beneath them. They were left shocked and dazed by the suddenness of what had just happened!

The Lord’s activity was also now exposing, not just the positioning of these men, but also what was now visible ON the floor, which the rug had previously covered, and on which they had previously stood.

God’s desire for this nation and for Europe is to remove us from the EU, it’s false worship system, and the false gods which lie behind it, turning us back to the worship of himself, the only True God. Jesus, speaking of His Father said:

“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”  (John 17:3)

Therefore, this present struggle with the EU is not merely geographic or geopolitical; it is also the struggle between the church, the body of Christ, and the spiritual powers of this Age.

To confirm and emphasise the above truths, He drew my attention to the conflict between Israel and Egypt, and the flight through the Red Sea (also known as the Sea of Reeds, or the “sea of weaknesses”).  He specifically focused on the confrontation that he engineered at Baal Zephon (Exodus 14:2).

Whilst Israel is fleeing from Egypt’s forces, the Lord tells Israel to do an unusual and unexpected thing. Instead of leading them away to apparent safety, he INTENTIONALLY tells them to head back towards the Egyptians and SEEMINGLY towards danger.

He instructs them to camp opposite Baal Zephon, by the sea. This would mean Baal Zephon would now overshadow their path en-route to safety on the other side. But God had organised and planned all this, in advance.

When Pharaoh saw Israel turn back, his immediate thought was that Israel had now ‘trapped themselves’. However, there was also a second thought in his mind, which concerned his trust in Baal Zephon.

We need to understand that Baal Zephon was now the only recognised god of Egypt that had not been defeated by the 10 plagues. All the other gods had been destroyed, together with their temple sites and their idols.

Baal Zephon was considered the strongest amongst the echelon of Egypt’s gods, even before the 10 plagues. He was known as the Lord of the North, the storm god, the lord of the sea and of tornadoes. Therefore, Pharaoh was not afraid to lead his army into the sea, trusting in Baal Zephon’s protection because this god had not been defeated.

Pharaoh thought he held the ‘trump card’ and that Israel would be powerless against him. So with a high hand Pharaoh lead his armies into the sea in pursuit of Israel. Thus, despite all the plagues, Egypt’s greatest god would be glorified.

Baal means ‘owner’, hence Baal means ‘lord’. But zephon, when used in its feminine sense, as a verb, means to ‘lay out’, to overlay or to cover – as with a carpet.

To overlay, to cover as with a carpet….. All this began with a picture of men standing on a carpet, worshiping whilst facing east – and the words – “I will pull the rug (the carpet) out from underneath them.”

I believe God is saying I have not just targeted those who serve Baal, I have targeted the god that is considered the most strong amongst them, the god they put their trust in. David and Goliath springs to mind.

Though Pharaoh’s gods sought to pull the rug out from underneath “Little Israel”, the LORD engineered a very public defeat of those gods.

In the same way, the gods that lie behind the EU are now seeking to crush the “little UK.” But what is coming is the very public defeat of Baal, the EU’s self-proclaimed king.

He will have the rug pulled out from underneath him, together with all who serve him – And this so reminds me of Haman’s very sudden fate.

Whilst finishing this, I sense Father God is saying, “Though Baal Zephon may be the strongest, the best they have to offer.  I, I have kept the best ’til last.”

By engineering this ‘suddenly’, whilst protecting “little Israel” in her great vulnerability, our Lord God enticed Pharaoh and his “masters” into their decisive defeat.

Thus the LORD demonstrates his great love, his power and wisdom, and his strength and might. He thereby shows his supremacy, not only amongst men and the nations, but to the rulers and powers of this dark age.

He is sending this victory to encourage us, His people. But also to our nation, and to the nations and peoples of Europe, He sends his powerful message that they can be set free. They too can be delivered and come to know the Saviour, and no longer be enslaved, nor numbered amongst the lost.

Be it so, Father God, unto them and unto us. But also unto you, Our Father, may glory come to your great name, through our Lord Jesus, Amen!  (Ephesians 3:9-10)

Bringing the Glorious Word of the Lord to the Nation : One Voice, 8th February 2020

Click/tap image for link to via via Eventbrite

Bringing the Word of the Lord, through the voice of the Ekklesia to the nation!

We believe that God is still speaking into the Nation and the church is responsible for bringing that prophetic word to the attention of leaders, people in power and those who carry responsibility for the care of the nation. It is important that the word of the Lord comes out of a united ekklesia and we come together from our different streams to speak as one voice. This is a space for influential voices from the church, business, education and other spheres of influence.

Call to intercessors to declare “CUT” over our nation!

I’m privileged that Paul Clift has shared the full details surrounding the following dream with me as they authenticate his account and its importance. The ‘Background’ provides a good example of prophetic protocol:

A Prophetic Dream of the Spiritual Tug-of-War

We are in a very fierce spiritual war for this nation of the UK. The evidence is all around us. We need to earnestly pray at this time.

I saw a tug-of-war taking place. This is not a party game but a massive spiritual war between opposing sides. It is a David and Goliath situation. I was reminded from the book of Ecclesiastes that a three-stranded cord is not easily broken. There are many more strands in a rope.

The Holy Spirit said that,

“The rope will not break in the natural realm. The rope can only be broken supernaturally. If the intercessors, prayer warriors and people of God repent and rise up together then all it will take is ONE word: “CUT”. God will respond and take hold of His sword which is sharper than any two-edged sword. The rope will be cleanly cut. The effect will be the two teams pulling on the rope will be taken by surprise. Each team will fall to the ground some distance from each other. Each team will be in a heap wondering what has happened.

“Do you not know there is an enemy within? They smile and shake hands, but deep inside they are not for this nation, the United Kingdom. They are traitors!”

I was taken aback at the word ‘traitor’ but the Holy Spirit reminded me that Jesus called the religious leaders of the day white-washed sepulchres.

“Do not be deceived by what you can see, because I see deep into the very depths of each human heart. In these days I am shaking everything that can be shaken and exposing for all to see the inner motives of people’s hearts.

“The heaps of people on the ground represents disarray, not knowing what to do, a difficult season. However, there will be a realisation after a short time that the United Kingdom is no longer in a tug-of-war. There will be a recovery. The EU will begin to blame each other and there will be much infighting. They will not recover.

“I need to bring Europe to its knees because I long for all people everywhere to come to repentance but pride is the obstacle. At this time intercede for Europe but repent and declare “CUT” over this nation.” [Underlining RB]

Gordian Knot Legend

Eve, my wife, noticed something on the TV and told me that I might be interested in what was being said in an interview.

On the morning of Wednesday May 28th 2019 an interview took place on BBC with Jacob Rees-Mogg (JRM). The interviewer asked him about a comment Jeremy Hunt had made earlier in the day describing the current situation between the EU and the UK “as a Gordian knot”. JRM described the legend.:

“There was an ox cart tied up with a complicated knot. An oracle had declared that any man who could unravel its elaborate knots was destined to become ruler of all of Asia. Alexander the Great wanted to untie the knot but struggled to do so without success. He then reasoned that it would make no difference how the knot was loosed, so he drew his sword and sliced it in half with a single stroke.”

Paul Clift
Wednesday 22nd May 2019 5.25am

Paul and Eve Clift started Healing Rooms England & Wales 16 years ago and passed it on last year but continue as Directors of Halifax Healing Rooms. They are Divisional Directors of Healing Rooms, which looks after about 15 nations across Europe, mostly Eastern Europe, and are part of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) at Kings Church, Halifax, which they’d started in their home.

Background:

The Prophetic Dream and the Gordian Knot were submitted in accordance with 1 Cor 14:29 to the SLT on Thursday 30th May 2019. At the next day’s SLT meeting both were considered and it was decided the Prophetic Dream and Gordian Knot should be read at the following Sunday’s morning meeting of Kings Church, when Paul was scheduled to conclude his teaching series on gifts of the Holy Spirit.

However, upon waking on Sunday Paul encountered a strong spiritual attack upon his health, which they realised was because of the dream. He needed help to get to church and was allowed to bring the prophetic dream at the beginning of the meeting – only then did the opposition start to lift.  A period of prayer and intercession based upon the prophetic word was held later.

In fact only the previous Sunday, 26th May 2019, the full time leader at King’s Church, Paul McMahon, had recognized the real need to pray urgently for this nation. Although this significant prophetic dream had come to Paul Clift days earlier whilst away, he felt constrained not to respond. He later realised this was appropriate for the subsequent submission of the dream to the church’s leadership.

Should the Church be actively engaged in politics? South Africa gives a lead

In view of the on-going political upheaval here, Roger Jervois, who’s been keeping us updated on the political Ulster-Eire front, offers a Southern African perspective based upon his personal experience, on the value of the Church getting directly involved in politics.  It is particularly a-propos with my increasing political coverage, albeit from a prophetical stance. Roger writes,

‘I was born in then-Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, in 1963. There, the evangelical church was largely silent, with basically only the Catholics resisting the racist Rhodesian government. The evangelical Church largely stayed out of the political realm, to the great cost of the average person in latter decades.

‘After emigrating to South Africa, in 1986 I (reluctantly, to be honest) joined a very controversial church, Rhema Bible Church, Randburg under a fearless pastor Ray Macauley. The political climate was very difficult still, getting steadily worse – the Apartheid government was ruthless in dealing with criticism.

‘God spoke to Ray’s heart about getting involved in politics and changing the course of the nation. God said it was going to be very costly for him and the church in terms of public opinion, a fact which continues today. God sent many great men and women of God to confirm His word, in front of the congregation, which I personally witnessed.

‘As a church, we rallied around our pastor in obedience to the Holy Spirit. Thus we began to pray for the nation diligently, from 1988 onwards. God opened doors, and even the then-Minister of Finance, Barend Du Plessis, a newly born-again Christian of Afrikaans background, came and spoke briefly to the church, to tumultuous applause. It continued, and God led Ray to reach out further, and he did.

‘The result was a gathering in 1990, after months of intercession, of the extreme left-, centre- and right-wings of the Christian Church in SA at a place of great spiritual significance, Rustenburg – the first capital of the Transvaal Republic and bastion of Afrikaanerdom. It was known as the Rustenburg or Bishop’s Conference where the church leaders wept openly for what they had brought into the nation, asking God’s forgiveness. The result was the miracle turnaround in SA, which continues unto today.

‘Last weekend saw the inauguration of a convert of 20 years, from the very same Rhema Bible Church Randburg, take the oath of office as our State President. The Church in SA continues to be prodded by difficulties into praying for and interacting directly with politicians, to our greater benefit.

‘It is highly recommended that Christians engage with their authorities.’

Roger Jervois, 1st June 2019

‘This says a lot about race relations in SA, the fruit of the revival perhaps.’

Brexit Party God-incidence via ‘Bridge o’er the Pond’ (GPS #33)

At long, long last another instance of the spiritual bridge over ‘the Pond’ ! (An imaginary supra-natural bridge linking Britain with North America used by Holy Spirit for delivering the same, or similar, teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the North Atlantic ocean on the same, or next, day – see earlier posts.)

As told last Thursday in the previous post, it was the day of the EU elections when I emailed Dave Chapman about an intercessor at his church having contacted Nigel Farage. We didn’t proceed further in view of the Bank Holiday weekend and awaiting results of the election. However, on the holiday Monday, Canadian intercessor Maxine Phyllis left this notable comment to the dream about the next Prime Minister, and which warrants separate publication (note; a ‘gremlin’ treated it as ‘spam’!):

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

Endless Bridge by Evgeni Denev (credit Freedigitalphotos.net)

‘From Atlantic Canada: This brings me to an experience I had with the Lord in which I was given a free air ticket in 2008, to travel to England where I spent two weeks based in Somerset County. I flew out of Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 31, 2008 and spent the Remembrance Day season in Britain. As a descendant of Canadian war veterans it was a huge deal to me, but the LORD – the Holy One of Israel – had something to show me about where the political realms came to an end and the Kingdom of God begins. I saw in the Spirit a great dark veil spread over all of North America and I heard the Lord say “The entire western hemisphere needs to learn the way of the cross for what comes next.”

‘From this perspective, as I read through the text of this spiritual dream above, it speaks volumes to me about what’s to come next for the Judeo-Christian world. From a Kingdom perspective the BREXIT campaign is NOT just about upholding democracy for Britain, but it’s about preserving freedom for Kingdom sons to become all they were created to be for such a time as this. All of creation is waiting to see it, as the fullness of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit takes up residence on earth as He is in heaven (Romans 8:17-21). Therefore, any political leader who promises Brexit in order to support democracy only will not be able to complete the task because, in the fullness of the Kingdom, there comes an end to freedom for individuals to continue promoting the sinful human nature. Whether he knows it or not, a governing authority put in place as a Prime Minister responsible for carrying Brexit to its completion, is one put in place by God to facilitate the separation of goats and sheep (Romans 13, Matthew 25). Unless he understands how God is using him he will be thrown into utter confusion by thinking his highest goal is to ensure financial freedom for a Judeo-Christian nation; even if it means ensuring those who practice rebellion towards God are free to continue doing so.

‘Since I returned to Atlantic Canada I’ve had powerful visions from heaven about the New Jerusalem coming down from God through the UK and over to North America, for the sole purpose of bringing forth the fulfillment of His promises about Israel and the Jewish people. On the day of the Brexit referendum – June 23, 2016 – the Lord led me to go prayer walking on behalf of the UK and I saw in the Spirit an open heaven between Atlantic Canada and the heavenly realms over England. I saw the LORD stand up from His throne and applaud. I asked Him how to pray and He revealed to me that His plans lined up with another 23rd day described in the book of Esther (Esther 8 – 23rd day of Sivan). He led me to pray for the Hamans to be hung on their own gallows. Then He showed me it was a time for the Church to write new decrees, however we see fit. The goal is the same now as it was then: to defend His sovereign purposes for Israel and the Jewish people. The nations are redeemed, or not, through their willingness to line up with His plans accordingly. We need to pray for all our governing authorities to be used as facilitators for this cause: to bring forth new wine and oil related to His coming Kingdom and His will to be done on earth as He is in heaven.

‘In the face of all that, the key word that hits my spirit from this dream described above, is the word ‘SCROLL’. It speaks to me of the Great Scroll of Isaiah which was preserved as one of the most important Dead Sea scrolls and which, when translated into English, proves the veracity of the original King James Bible. The text of Isaiah in the original King James is almost word-for-word identical to the Great Scroll of Isaiah translated directly from Hebrew to English. Also, the word SCROLL in this dream speaks to me of Revelation 10:10. I’ve had literal experiences here in Atlantic Canada with this, hearing the voice of the seven thunders speaking from up over the UK to the free Judeo-Christian world. I’ve had visitations from the Lord as a result of having met Him in a powerful way at the Morning Room of Wesley’s Chapel, Bristol, UK. It’s like an open heaven from there to Atlantic Canada follows me around and I often hear the word “SCROLL”; as if this scroll described in Revelation 10:10 is originating from the ministry begun by the Wesleys in Bristol and London. There is something decidedly English about it all, as the English language was spread far and wide along with the distribution of the King James Bible, and English is now the world’s ‘lingua franca’ – the ‘go-to’ language for people of other tongues to have one common language in order to communicate.

‘I’ve made it a personal mission to pray for Nigel Farage to be transformed into a Kingdom son, so that Brexit will be used to point people to the coming Kingdom of God. Then the freedom that is so desperately being sought will be used to exalt above all else the Name of the Lord and His Word. That the Prime Minister in this dream above placed his head on the author’s shoulder, speaks of him resting his understanding on the Presence of the Kingdom of God in the life of the author, and on the truth that ‘the government will be on His shoulders’. (Isaiah 9:6). The Prime Minister in this dream is asking for understanding and support from the Kingdom of God to sustain our God-given freedom for the Judeo-Christian nations. He needs to be transformed into a Kingdom son to make it happen. He needs to learn what it means to take up the cross and follow Christ – first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. This is an anointing and mantle the Lord has given me to teach to the ‘entire western hemisphere’ but it currently appears that the darkness will get darker still before even Spirit-led, mature believers will agree to meet the Lord at the cross in a personal way.

‘Feel free to connect for the purposes of interceding for the Kingdom’s plans for Brexit to prevail. I have a site – Through Fire and Water – which the Lord continues to prompt me to rename ‘gloryofzioncanada.ca’. He has done a very hidden work from a Canadian perspective related to the cross, for the purpose of standing in the gap for both UK and USA.’

Maxine Phyllis, 27th May.

Personal Footnote:

Norris Point, Newfoundland, April 2008

Maxine’s message evokes strong personal connections for several reasons.

First, I well recall my first sightings of the other end of the ‘bridge’ upon flying over Newfoundland and Nova Scotia en-route to Toronto, as well as down to Florida for the Caribbean and inland to Arizona.

Also, within 10 miles of our home in East Hampshire are three Canadian war memorial sites. Our associated church of St Mary’s in Bramshott has a cemetery of over 300 graves of our Canadian allies fallen in the Great War (Alison Avery’s photos include those of Canadian Memorial planting of maple trees).

My earliest memory, however, is told in my 2,000th post in connection with my writing as well as sketching a short story which my class-teacher commended to the headmistress of my primary school. (Inspired by the motto “The Mountie always gets his man”, the hero received a medal from the young Queen Elizabeth for his bravery.)  And what’s more, as I blogged about that we were following the Netflix drama ‘When Calls The Heart’, which features the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Mulling over ‘May-hem’, the Battle for Britain, the EU elections

[Prepared on Thursday 23rd May, the afternoon before PM May’s resignation, and held pending permission for added quotation.]

Such exceptionally historic days for our nation and, as a consequence, for the federal union of European nations. Therefore, I offer a few thoughts jotted at the beginning of April and then on the subsequent launch of the Brexit Party and Friday’s unexpected elections for UK representatives to sit in the European Parliament!

Seven weeks ago today I jotted thoughts percolating in my mind over the demise of democracy, as shown in public reactions to the legitimate result of the largest vote in British history encouraged by our dishonest representatives in Parliament, aided and abetted by grossly muddled and incompetent government. We see the collapse of the Conservative party as its leader Theresa May scythes through its grassroots’ support, on top of the ‘May-hem’ in politics, media and across public and business domains.

AND what an astonishing week it’s been with the whole party now against its leader as Prime Minister, but who steadfastly refuses to resign – yet!  I regret to come to no other logical conclusion but that Mrs May has deliberately betrayed the electorate and trying to compromise with every shade of opinion.

Also, I’m reminded how the grave state of national breakdown, not only politically but also spiritually and therefore morally, exactly fits what I saw emerging out of thin air 15 years ago as an open vision of Britain (as here).

Let me stress straight away, as when collating my expanding series of blogs about the EU and the In/Out question: my own politics are non-partisan because the Kingdom of God has priority.

SOME SCRIPTURES

Let’s check a couple of pertinent New Testament scriptures penned by Paul. The first was written about 10 years before Nero persecuted Christians after the great fire of Rome, and then followed by many other persecutions across the Roman Empire. Yet such atrocities did not result in this passage’s ‘redaction’ at the hands of the early Church for they appreciated the essay’s content was inspired by the Holy Spirit; that is, they were words from God Himself. Here’s the basic Christian perspective of worldly, ruling authorities:

Submit to Government

1. Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. [Romans 13; courtesy Biblegateway.com]

Another ten years and Paul instructs his protégé Timothy upon responsibilities in caring for souls:

Pray for All Men

1. Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in [authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. [1 Timothy 2, courtesy Biblegateway.com]

MODERN & BIBLICAL PROPHECY

Therefore, much as it is right to weigh, test and question prophetic words that seem to have endorsed Mrs May’s premiership, nevertheless according to scripture her position and authority are God-ordained. So, even if we doubt a prophet’s claims about a word from God saying she’s His person for the UK (and infer they come from the prophet’s opinion only), such a claim is nevertheless accurate in being in accord with scripture.

After all, the Lord used satan and its schemes promulgated through the leaders of the ancient Jews for His purposes in bringing about a plot to crucify His own son, our Lord Jesus Christ, for our own good…!

So, we could say even arch-betrayer Judas Iscariot was God’s man for that time!

Thus the Lord is no doubt using Mrs May and the may-hem she’s created, as well as manipulated within her government, party and Parliament to bring about His purposes and Britain’s End-time destiny in Him. All this unprecedented chaos and confusion fully accords with what some prophets said about the purpose behind these convulsions.

In other words, our fuller prophetical understanding of the mess the nation has fallen into, lies in not only national leaders’ rank rebellion against God and their disavowal of our unique, most ancient Christian heritage, but also in an appreciation that our turmoil and humiliation is precisely what He is permitting for our own eventual good.

Furthermore, let’s remind ourselves of the mechanism of this great apostasy foreseen by Paul and stand in dreadful awe and holy fear of his description of how God will allow and enable those reprobates to empower, yet imperil, themselves. Note how it happens:

‘…The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusionthat they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.‘ [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, emphases added]

BREXIT PARTY’s STANCE

Since my drafting the above, Nigel Farage has returned to politics with the launch of the Brexit Party and spectacularly overtaking Conservative and Labour support, as shown in pre-election polls (as herein). We’ve now witnessed the electorate’s contempt for her  governments’ failure by Nigel thrashing and trashing Theresa’s Tories into fifth place!!! (Slumping to its lowest ever share in European elections.)

Further to his article on Brexit and our Democratic Responsibility, Dave Chapman tells me that “one of our prayer partners in the House of Prayer felt she had to write to some key politicians.” He writes, “Just thought: Old Testament prophets regularly got involved in speaking to kings in Israel, often giving their tacit backing as well as rebuking them.

“The particular prayer partner comments that Nigel Farage’s ancestors were French Huguenots, so like Trump, there is a trace of steely Godly influence somewhere in his DNA.  In fact, after the Referendum result she wrote to him – because she believed the Lord prompted her to – commending him and thanking him for all his input. 

“She specifically said to him that there was another who was reviled, in fact even more than he, and was crucified for such as us.  Some time later she had a reply, apologising for his delay in responding, as he’d decided to write personally to everyone who wrote him.

“From that letter it became clear to her that he understood our heritage in this Nation was of a Judeo-Christian nature and there would be a real battle to maintain it, even though he did not have her kind of faith.”

GOD’S STRATEGY FOR EU ELECTIONS?

Now permit me to speculate: if the Brexit Party wins the European elections in Britain by a landslide then their representation in Brussels will give huge support to other nations’ rejection of the EU’s dominance, thereby assisting in its prophesied downfall. In fact, the one-time Prime Minister of the Czech Republic ended his speech at the Party’s Olympia Rally almost pleading, on behalf of the peoples in Europe who want to be free of the EU’s domination, that Britain lead the way by completing our exit.

Had Mrs May not been so obdurate in delaying implementation of Brexit, then Britain would have left the EU on 29 March and we wouldn’t be eligible for representation in its parliament – and thus unable to rock the EU’s boat, as is likely with the Brexit Party’s expected wins.

So in some mysterious way, maybe the now resigned Prime Minister Theresa May and ‘reignited’ politician Nigel Farage are actually serving the Lord’s purposes!

As Dave closes our correspondence: “Btw, what would Leave voters have done in these EU Elections if there were no Brexit Party?  Must have been a ‘God thing’!”

Triple validation of the reality of my encounter with Jesus

APPENDIX TO PERSONAL TESTIMONY

A little time was needed to gain a fuller understanding of that awesome visitation – the absolute holiness of the Lord Jesus Christ in contrast to my personal sinful nature. No wonder I expected to die and was simultaneously convicted of my sin!

That encounter used two very personal aspects of my life to grab my attention, thereby validating the experience as real, not an imaginary one. Even more amazingly, both validations are directly related to the 1st and 2nd Advents!  Thus, they couldn’t fail to enhance my interest in End-Times and which had been launched a few years earlier by The Invisible Hand (described here).

The First Advent was the time when Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea about two thousand years ago. Hence, the four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and which start the church year.

The Second Advent is coming soon and is expected to begin in the city of Jerusalem.

FIRST VALIDATION

I inwardly ‘knew’ the heavenly visitor was indeed Jesus, and that the impressive action was a foretaste of his promised return, when He will come in all His power and glory.

The event reminded me of my favourite picture in mother’s Missal, or service book of the Roman Mass.  This gave the content of every Sunday service throughout the year with a diagram symbolising the theme for each service.  As a boy keen on astronomy I’d been fascinated by the picture for First Sunday in Advent. This depicted Jesus standing on the clouds over a burning earth in the midst of sun, moon and falling stars, indicative of events before his Second Advent!

The confirmation referred to above came almost as unusually. On a healing retreat years later, a minister told me God would show me something after lunch. Indeed, after lunch a stranger who’d been seated at my table confided that the Lord told her to show me something she greatly treasured.

christinclouds-lrgIt was a photo taken, it was claimed, from an aircraft over a thunderstorm. When developed, the photo bore an image of Jesus Christ, as though standing within clouds. However, the facial features were hazy, not defined. It was exactly like Jesus in my dream because I’d not seen His face.  (I recall dark, hazy clouds at the foot of the image. This one is published by Bible Probe.)

Upon seeing this photo my legs gave way – I couldn’t stand but fell into a nearby chair! My companion said I went so white she thought I was going to faint or fall.

Yet, just how did a stranger know to show me this photo?  I’d not divulged such a personal dream – she simply said, “It’s the Lord’s doing”.

SECOND VALIDATION

I was puzzled over the closing element of the dream-event, that is:  upon my reaching towards Jesus’ feet to grasp his robe, it turned into the branch of a Christmas tree!  So, when I tugged, a Christmas tree toppled over and its fairy fell off and onto the floor.

Weird?  Not really, because that spot by the window was where the family Christmas tree used to be erected. It was a corner closely associated with Christmas.

As a devout Catholic, my mother had told me about Jesus from an early age. When I painted pictures I would put a blue stripe at the top of outdoor scenes to represent heaven, as children did. But I’d also draw a Christmas tree in heaven as being Jesus.

Why? Not only had I associated all the wonder of Christmas with his birthday but I also heard an actor  on TV mention his name whilst looking at a small fir-tree. So in my childish way I took the actor at his word and would draw Jesus as a Christmas tree.  Hence, the dream changed him to match that image.

At its close, therefore, the dream-event signified the time had come to put away not only childish misconceptions but also all false teachings and replace them with absolute truth – the one who is the Truth in person.

Truly, the most fantastic Christmas present ever – one that’s daily an ever-present encouragement and help in every time of need, no matter how dire. Thank you Lord.

These events started in 1989 and culminated in 1995 with its prime confirmation. Yet more was to come!  Sixteen years later upon revisiting this story for the purposes of this blog, I was surprised by a couple more insights that dropped unbidden into mind. One was tantalising: could the street number of my childhood home (212) possibly be significant in pointing toward the coming year? That is, to 2012!  

Could that notion be true?  Such musing would be confirmed in a fascinating numerical manner at 2012’s first Christian conference we were to attend…Upon our arrival at the venue I was curious about distance driven from home. The car’s odometer was ‘212’ miles!

THIRD VALIDATION

Once again, timing proves crucial in presenting another objective confirmation!  Again, had I not been writing about the visitation I would have missed the crucial linkage!

Whilst writing installments of My Journey Into Freedom (Sept-Oct 2013) I inserted a report on something pertinent that happened at that time in the USA, as recounted in the previous post. This came as a ‘new revelatory word’ from the Lord to Revd John Kilpatrick and began at 2:22am. This too, is very interesting on two counts. Numerically, because my birthday falls on a 22nd. Orally, because that word is directly relevant to my dream visitation in referring to the angelic host as well as in closing with Luke 21:28, namely:

“But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand.”

My mother’s Missal for the First Sunday of Advent is shown below and notice how the scripture on page 69 links into my personal visitation and what pastor John brought.
