‘Bridge o’r Pond’ double-dose of hope from scripture and vision (GPS #72)

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

It took three days to dawn upon me that what I’d heard on Sunday and read early the next morning from an American prophet were connected!  Whilst getting up today, I was struck by that realisation and started drafting this blog only to find much later when back online that Veronika West in Northern Ireland had just posted a very blessed vision about hope and broken, shattered lives. So I submit this account for your weighing:

Normally, for church I use my hand-size NIV Bible. But before we set off there I thought of taking my double-brick sized, very heavy study Bible just in case I needed to check cross-references – LOL, how little did I know…!!!

SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE – UK

‘1st Peter – A Living HopeWelcome to 3 Counties Vineyard. Over the next couple of months we will be going through this short letter, particularly focusing on the theme of hope. Hollie Rhodes is kicking off the series by looking at 1 Peter 1:1-12.’

Click to play video for the message > https://youtu.be/GqHoY2CrMf0?t=2137

Although the version Hollie was reading was shown on overhead screen I followed her from my NKJV and particularly noted introductory verse 2 (she started from the next verse) as clearly implying that, as God has known all believers before they became to faith in Jesus – and most mysteriously since ‘the foundation of the world’ (Eph 1:4) – we have a destiny within His purposes and plans throughout earth’s history.

My Bible reads (courtesy BibleGateway.com – underlined phrases caught my attention):

Greeting to the Elect Pilgrims

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.

A Heavenly Inheritance

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been [c]grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christwhom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.

10 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 11 searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. 12 To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to [e]us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into.

At the close of Hollie:s teaching any members of the congregation desiring prayer on this topic were invited to move to the rear of the hall for ministry. But my eyes were drawn to ‘Word Wealth’, a box explaining the Greek meaning of ‘kept’, and I had a ‘nudge’ this may be of help to those recipients for I recalled we have guardian angels.

kept: phroureo Strong’s #5432 A military term picturing a sentry standing guard as protection against the enemy. We are in spiritual combat, but God’s power and peace (Phil 4:7) are our sentinels and protectors.

So, I showed it to Hollie and she announced to everyone her brief summary of this, and referred to angelic support throughout difficult times.

I was to discover the next morning that the same day over in the States Johnny Enlow had been praying and revisiting a highly pertinent prophecy, and posted this to his Facebook on Monday:

SUNDAY PRAYER TIME – USA

June 2015 Prophetic Word I published that I thought relevant to revisit. God has been speaking into this day for a while.

As I was praying today I was able to see in the spirit some important things over our nation. I saw what I believe is our nation’s great angel named Union, and he was active, arising and huge over Washington DC. I saw he had the colors of the American flag over his chest, and he was immense as in he dwarfs skyscrapers. The imagery of size, strength and power was profound.
As I was seeing this I began to sense other things. It is true that Washington is out of control. It is true that the Supreme Court has overstepped its bounds on several fronts. It is true that there are major conspiracies and plans of the enemy against our nation. It is true that the economy doesn’t have sound underpinnings. It is true multiple terrorist organizations are desirous of inflicting maximum damage on America.
It is true Satan himself is trying to destroy America from within and from without. It is true that he is working at it from all 7 mountain avenues. He has a governmental angle, an economic angle, a family angle, an education angle, a media angle, an arts and entertainment angle, and a religious angle. If you were to look at what Satan has been working at for years and years you would join in with all the voices of “we are doomed”.
But here is what I saw and what I know. It is God Himself who is preserving us and He has sent massive angelic firepower to make sure we don’t disintegrate and we don’t collapse. We are not being preserved by our own righteousness, as our nation has many laws and ordinances that are below righteousness standard. We are not being defended because our churches are so full of God. Many of you correctly see that based on our righteousness level or our church level we could be destroyed. What most of you have not seen, is that we will not be destroyed. Not only will we not be destroyed, but we will be brought through into a great strengthening beyond anything we have experienced as a nation. We are about to experience a transformational national renaissance.

This is part of a sovereign design of God for this age of restoration of all things and He is working with the minority. He is working in conjunction with the few prophets of His who are able to see Him and what He is doing. Many of His prophets have become stuck and struck, seeing into the second heavens and all that Satan has said he will do. Many are terrified and it is coming out in their words and in their writings and in their videos. However, 99% of what Satan has been plotting and planning for the destruction of America WILL NOT HAPPEN. In most cases he doesn’t know he won’t be able to accomplish his plots, but he is about to go through a series of startling and humiliating setbacks. He is going to be humiliated in the eyes of his own powers and principalities. They have again underestimated the King of Kings and will suffer accordingly.

Do you, my reader, perceive how both scripture and prophecy from both sides of the ‘Pond’ have a similar threaded theme of giving us strongly encouraging hope in these tumultuous days?

And then today along comes publication of Veronika’s vision relating to hope and the appearance of angels…(previous post refers).

It’s so good that, at long last, Britain has a growing number of Christians who appreciate not only Bible prophecy but are also blessed by Holy Spirit’s gift of prophecy. However, other than for climate issues, most churchgoers are reticent to consider political issues in any depth, because they prefer to focus mainly upon Kingdom-related matters. Continue reading

UK and US prophets confirm each other yet again re. Trump – ‘Jackal spirit’ (God’s GPS #69.3)

THURSDAY 23rd cont’d

Then several hours later (US time) after Veronika, Johnny Enlow is with Steve Schultz and reading from Isaiah chapters 13 &14 and how they relate to today (NB. New King James Version’s Isaiah 14 sub-heads :’Mercy upon Jacob, Fall of the King of Babylon, Fall of Lucifer, Babylon Destroyed, Philistia Destroyed).

Here’s the pertinent extracts from video’s captions transcript from this time-mark shown, from where Johnny goes on to cite holy scripture about the unclean, spiritual jackals:

End-Times Update: eyes turn toward Jerusalem!

Zecharia 12- The Coming Deliverance of Judah

12 The [a]burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of [b]drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. [NKJV, BibleGateway.org]

In my humble opinion, this news supports view that the Biden regime is Obama III, in view of #44’s strong anti-Israel stance.

Extract:

‘Democrat’s bill violates the Oslo Accords that were facilitated by Bill Clinton which considered the territories “disputed”, not “occupied.” Barack Obama was the first to violate the Oslo Accords when he refused to veto UNSC 2334 on December 23, 2016 on his way out of office….’

The Bible’s Author opens it to answer my ‘newbie’ questions

Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus,For I always pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him by having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), and [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when raising Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places], far above all rule and authority and power dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come…. [Eph1:17-21, Amplified Bible. We decree that the blindness be removed from the eyes of all the peoples of this land so they may see Jesus Christ is Lord.]

IN CELEBRATING MY BIRTHDAY TODAY I THANK GOD FOR MY EARTHLY AND EXTERNAL LIVES 

Lord, help me love everyone,even wrongdoers, with Your awesome, gracious undying love

Life-changing as my ‘rescue’ was in that dream-visitation on 14th September 32 years ago, I did not want to rush off to church. The event’s effect and ramifications upon my philosophy of life needed careful consideration. For example, I needed to check out widespread claims of the Bible having been compiled and modified by Church councils in the 4th Century after Christ, as well as learn about its history from authoritative sources. [Prof F.F. Bruce’s The Books and The Parchments (1991) was very helpful, especially about the ‘Muratorian Fragment’. Drawn up in late 2nd Century in the church at Rome, it lists practically all the canonical New Testament literature.]

So not only did I need to assess those personal implications, but also as possibly a new believer in Jesus Christ I wanted to find well-informed believers who take Him seriously. I soon did so, but then needed to put their claims of hearing direct from God to the test. After all, they believe we have a relationship with Him and so we have but to ask… Continue reading

Three prophetic words for Canada and USA – Barry Wunsch

I’m grateful to Maureen Osborne and Elaine Venning for sending these transcripts of words brought by Canadian Barry Wunsch, the third of which I’d referred to in Ungodly Opposition Brings Mightier Blessing – The Fall of the ‘Gods’ – The Battle Is The Lord’s and warrants a written record:

SOUND THE BATTLE-CRY OVER CANADA!  (13th August 2021)

God says:It’s time to sound the battle-cry over this nation of Canada! My destiny over Canada will not be stolen!

Watch as I extract and expose every evil plan and plot against her. I am releasing truth across this land, and it will burn in the hearts of the wicked. My fire is being released to burn in the hearts of men and women in the land. They will be running to My altar for forgiveness, healing and deliverance. 

“Canada, this is your hour! Do not lose heart! Do not relent! Walk by faith, not by sight! Rise up! Rise up! Rise up! It has only just begun!

Barry Wunsch
The Canadian Hammer

 

USA, FASTEN YOUR SEAT-BELTS (18th August 2021)

“Fasten your seat-belts; this is going to the ride of your life.  I have begun to dismantle the most evil structures that have ever existed.  Many have said it cannot be done. They say it will never change.  They say they are too powerful.  They say it will never change.  They say the colour of the team does not matter; they are all the same, corrupt, greedy, vile and immoral.  It is for this reason that I am dismantling things as you have known them.  I tell you I will not relent; I will not stop until everything that can be shaken has been shaken.

“The deep-state that has ruled over the United States of America and every nation around the world shall be dealt with swiftly.  The ties to the ancient order, occult, false gods and false religions shall be exposed for all to see and understand, and I shall dismantle and destroy these at the sound of My Name.  Let it be known on this day, that I am coming to deal with these evil leaders once and for all.  For far too long they have oppressed and controlled my people.  I am dismantling their alliances, power structures and regional strongholds.

“From New York to California, you will see My hand at work.  These gates to and from this nation will be re-established on My Word and My destiny for this United States of America.  I am exposing and removing all those who stand in the way.  They have been given an opportunity to repent but have made their choice to walk in their own ways.

“I will displace the powers and principalities that overshadow these gates (New York and California) and the light shall shine like the noon-day sun for all to see.  I will bring restoration and healing through these gates.  The harvest shall be great as revival sweeps the streets.  I will re-establish and release Kingdom wealth for My people, taking it from the hands of the wicked – you will be astonished by the work of My hand.

“Bill Gates, I am about to tie your hands.  You have had your freedom.  But know this – there are some against you that money cannot buy.  They are closing in and there is no way to escape what is coming.  You will be tried by many nations and your works will be brought to an end.  There is nowhere to hide from Me!  Many are your pawns, many are your allies; not one will I overlook.  I am bringing MY justice!”

 

VICTORY – DJT SWEEPS THE NATION

Open Vision on June 17, 2021: 

During a prolonged time in prayer, I was taken into an open vision where I saw the front page of a newspaper. The headline read: “Victory – DJT Sweeps the Nation!” Like history, the war was over. I knew it was over…this was it. It was done. It was finished. It was time to celebrate! Then I saw masses of people pouring out onto the street; there were flags and celebration. Yet, there was still work to be done; there was still tension in the air – intense tension.

I saw a large crowd gathering outside the White House. Those who had conspired and engineered the evil plans were suddenly surrounded inside the White House with nowhere to run, nowhere to escape. This was the end for them.

I saw military coming in for support – the support of the people. They entered the White House and other buildings and escorted these evil ones out. They were gathered like prisoners of war on the front lawn, lined up row upon row, each one now restrained in handcuffs and shackles. The crowd would cheer in great outbursts as each group was rounded up and brought out on display. The patriots were singing on the streets anthems and songs of victory and thanksgiving unto God!

Soon enough, the corrupted ones were all extracted. They were then marched out into the street surrounded by and under the control of the great patriot army, and followed by the citizens that had gathered. I watched as they were marched through the streets, now humiliated and about to face the consequences for all the evil and corrupt actions and things that they had done. They were marched into an army base where it appeared that they would be processed and incarcerated, put on trial and made to face the righteous judges, to face Justices and the highest of consequences. They would get all that they had coming for their crimes against humanity.

I saw DJT in an inauguration ceremony. He was surrounded by military, but this one looked different. There was no showboating; it was serious. The job had been done and it was time to heal, and time to rebuild. Even those who had opposed DJT could now no longer deny the evils that had been done by the corrupt. The fighting spirit in them had been broken.

I saw military planes being loaded with special teams and lawyers and boxes and pallets of documents, then departing to other nations to do what they had to do. They had foreign dignitaries awaiting their arrival to help them when they arrived; plans were strategically in place to execute their plans. They were en-route to arrest those foreign, corrupt leaders to bring them to justice. The world would never be the same.

I watched as nation after nation rejoiced on the streets as justice was served, and freedom, truth and righteousness flowed like mighty waters. The battle had been epic, and many were lost along the way. Those who were left standing had a great reward!

The Angel Army and the American Official

A few weeks ago, I was in a prayer meeting where I was taken into an open vision. I saw a mountain range where there was a deployment of angels. This was an angel army that had been sent at this time to escort an “American official” to a place that had been hidden and out of bounds for a long time. As this angel army entered the mountain range, they absolutely slaughtered the enemy and the demonic forces that had been positioned to protect and guard entry into a very secret military tunnel.

As this angel army positioned themselves around the American official to protect him and escort him for the assignment that he had to do, they approached a hidden entry into the side of the mountain where there was a stone that had been rolled away. Once removed, this revealed the most high-tech, advanced tunnel that I’ve ever seen.

As they flanked his side, the angels marched him into the tunnel to a high-security door. As he stood in front of the door, just his presence and who he was activated the high security, and the double doors opened up for his entry. It was clear that he was the only man on Earth at this time that was assigned to do what he was about to do.

As he continued through the tunnel, he came upon a second set of sliding doors and the security got higher. Again, the doors opened and he walked through with the angels at his side guarding him and protecting him all the way. He walked with a limp, and he looked a little bit weary. He was the one that was called in this time to do what he needed to do.

He ended up going through five sets of sliding doors. Upon entering the last set, there was a large room; however, it was empty, and all that was there were a couple of things for him to pick up. The first thing that he picked up was the size of a small suitcase, and it was obviously a computer drive of some sort. I knew that the codes and the information that were on this drive were the most valuable and powerful codes upon the earth at this time. They were even more powerful than what the president carries with his nuclear codes.

There was another suitcase that he picked up which was full of many files correlating with the assignments and the things that they needed to do, and what they needed in the days ahead. These were the most guarded, well-protected files and technology and information on the earth at this time.

He then picked them up and turned toward the exit tunnel, full of determination. It was clear that these angels were going to bring him through all he needed to get through for the victory that was well in hand. As he walked through the tunnel, strength returned to him and his limp disappeared.

Victory is assured, and it is happening now.

On prophecies not yet fulfilled: God is the Perfect Strategist – Dr Patricia Show

ESSENTIAL TEACHING (10 minutes) about the timing of recent prophecies:

Father knows the End from the Beginning. The Devil Loses!

After posting and tagging with friend on my Fbk yesterday, Chris Moyler comments,

Tky dear Richard,

This long wait for the reversal of the Stolen Election is v hard indeed, and it is especially hard when dates are given and are not fulfilled.
Dr Patricia Show (here) is the real deal, and she speaks in warm support of Timothy Dixon, who is also the real deal.
As a biblical example of the LORD changing his mind, she cites the time when Isaiah was sent to King Hezekiah, to tell him that he will die.
After delivering the message, Isaiah leaves the king, but before he has left the Palace, he is sent back to the king. The reason for the reversal is because the king cried out to the LORD for mercy. And so the LORD granted him 15 more years of life.
We humans see so little of the full picture, and that includes God’s prophets. However, through many prophetic voices, we are able to discern a reasonably clear picture of where the LORD is headed.
He is, most certainly going to reverse this vast election crime. Were he not to do so, it would be the end of free elections- from this time on, ALL of them would be stolen.
So we have before us TWO conflicting prophetic paradigms. The fist says that moral decline will accelerate, leading to the LORD’S soon return.
However, the SECOND paradigm speaks of the exposure and pushback of the Global Cabal and their NWO.
This will be followed by a prolonged period of God’s grace, during which time his people will do the “greater works.”
God’s goodness will thus be displayed to the world, as never before in history. This will mature the Bride and will bring in a great harvest of souls.
As for me, I have firmly burnt my bridges, and I am confidently expecting the second paradigm to emerge.
When will that be? I don’t know, and neither do most of the LORD’S prophets it seems.
But one thing do know: God’s JUSTICE is coming to the earth! And when he does finally break out, EVERYONE will see it.
Until that time, like Habbakuk, we watch and we pray.
Chris
PS (RB).  Tight timing for copying this over from YouTube and Fbk after re-blogging previous items before meal-time meant I omitted this intro:
‘This important word confirms my understanding of the Lord’s way of bringing Bible and modern prophecies to pass and dovetailing and weaving them in between human free will and activities.
Further confirmation came whilst watching (at high speed) with number of views 212, which featured in the Lord’s visiting me and rescuing me as I almost died from shock and fell into hell.’

The Trump Presidency: parable, allegory or test of faith? – Neil Mackereth

A couple of weeks ago my author friend Neil, whose evening courses 10 years ago at Winchester Vineyard on the Bible and End-times Prophecies are a fond memory, said in passing that he’s been mulling over the Trump situation. Later, during his prayer back-up in aid of our personal stand against satan’s strategy, he thinks the Trump story is both a parable and a model for something much bigger and last weekend he sent his thoughts, as follows:


THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY – PARABLE, ALLEGORY or TEST OF FAITH?

Introduction

Is Donald Trump’s Presidency a parable? It certainly has parallels (a modern-day Cyrus?) and I suspect that the full significance of what has been, and is, happening will soon be revealed. In the meantime, do we have eyes to see, and the wits to interpret, the possible Biblical precedents?

THE STORY SO FAR

To escape from the slavery and tyranny of deep-state political skulduggery, President Trump attempted to lead the USA in a new direction, which involved “crossing the Red Sea” and spending time in the wilderness. Unfortunately, the waters did not close over the heads of the Machiavellian “insiders”, who had been wrong-footed by his election (RB. 2016), and gave chase. From the start, the evil Washington cabal worked flat out to undermine the President’s endeavours to move on and “cross the Jordan” into the Promised Land.

The challenge for God’s appointed leader, Trump the outrageous, was how to turn the established “closed-shop” US political system on its head and re-establish a true democracy. The entrenched and extremely powerful elite used their iron grip on broadcasting, and main stream media platforms, to distort and manipulate information in order to ridicule and persecute Donald Trump. There was a near total shutdown on any positive achievements during his administration, and an amplification of anything negative. The propaganda, whipping-up of hatred and abuse against an appointed leader, was unprecedented, and reminiscent of the tactics used in takeovers in third-world dictatorships.

It seems very likely that they realised that even the massive propaganda campaign was not enough, so the conspirators resorted to vote rigging to achieve their aim.

TWO OTHER STORIES

  1. There was a man who took on an entrenched evil realm, with the jawbone of an ass as his only weapon. He won the battle! However, his enemies conspired against him: he was betrayed and taken captive. In the end, when his enemies were convinced that he was powerless, he was empowered by God to bring their “temple to a false god” down on their heads…!
  2. When God’s chosen people came up against an impregnable city, God provided what must have seemed like a crazy battleplan. The leader ignored the scepticism of his followers, and the ridicule of his enemies, and followed God’s plan to the letter. The impenetrable walls collapsed and the city was routed…!

CONCLUSION

Currently, the USA appears to be in the doldrums. It may not be Trump who leads that great Nation into a new season but surely, next time round, the recent revelations and very strong indications of corrupt voting practices will focus the minds of the electorate. It is still possible that there will be one or more bombshell vote-rigging exposés, which prove to be beyond the conspirators’ ability to smother – God’s will be done. One way or another, things are going to change.

God’s ways are not our ways and we should never seek to second-guess what His plan is and how it will be fulfilled. What we can be certain of is that God will not be mocked and His promises always hold true, for those who believe.  God expects us to have an absolute confidence in Him and His government of the world.

I am convinced that something unprecedented is about to happen – This is a test of faith!

Neil Mackereth, 14th August 2021

A couple of items from o’er ‘Pond’ on November ’20 election checks

This week’s lovely weather and time to be outdoors means blogging at my desk has been sporadic..Although I dislike Farcebook with its commie connections – plus farago of farce-checking – it’s faster to share items with a covering comment on my personal timeline. (Fbk suffices for its purpose but doesn’t facilitate capture of suitable images and content for link-free reading.) So you don’t miss them I’m popping them into this and the next couple of posts:

[Click to read previous posts on The Mayflower. General Mike’s article begins highly significantly,

‘America’s singular function is to be as described deep in the Bible itself: a light for the world, a light that cannot be hidden.

‘My interpretation of the light is the truth, and I know from personal experience that truth cannot be hidden — it always rises to the surface. Although some may desire to keep falsehoods and lies alive, I firmly believe that the return to faith by many Americans today is further evidence of God’s divine Providence and his determination for America to be a light for the rest of the world.

‘What is America’s foundation? She was a new creation preordained by God yet made by man. Through prayer, toil, hardship, sacrifice, then resilience and determination, America was founded so future generations could shine, reflecting the greatness of him.’.

God-incidentally, the evening of having shared this, Nina and I saw the final episode in season 3 of ‘Leverage’ (Amazon Prime TV) wherein the team taught a novice politician to use a similar reference to ‘Light’ in preventing a coup in a small republic!

“NO MORE APPEASEMENT” says the Lord – Neil Mackereth

My long-time friend, brother in the Lord and End-times author Neil emailed me on evening of 1st July,

‘Dear Richard, …Just seen a “mention in dispatches”, for which many thanks. I felt it confirmed that I should send you what the Lord has laid on my heart this week.

‘As you know, I am always watching for signs (as you are) and was struck by the fact that if you take ‘dem’ out of ‘pandemic’ you are left with ‘panic’ (or is it if you put ‘dem’ into ‘panic’ you get ‘pandemic’!). I doubt there is any significance, but the democrats do seem to have infiltrated and corrupted the administrative processes of the USA (like a virus) which should certainly cause concern (panic?) and the contagion could become worldwide pandemic, as a “New World Order”.

It is quite an appropriate introduction to his weighing of what he heard (emphases other than closing ‘word’ are mine):

APPEASEMENT

(Adjusting one’s values for fear of causing offence: conceding to an aggressor’s demands)

Introduction

The Lord said to me: “NO MORE APPEASEMENT”.

We are witnessing a mutiny against God. Sin crucified Jesus Christ and sin is the explanation (prime cause) for the uproar in the world today.

What I write here is determined by God, not by my own inclination. To some that may sound presumptuous. There is no doubt that we are in a world where we deify common sense and rely on our own understanding: some seek to imply that their deliberations are the thoughts of God. My utmost resolve is devotion to Jesus Christ, an unflinching loyalty to the Word of God and humility in service. The Lord has laid this topic on my heart; as always, the reader is urged to weigh and test.

International Relations

The troubles of the world are daunting and getting worse. They are likely to overwhelm those who don’t know Jesus and don’t have the Word of God as their bedrock. That principle applies to the governance of nations as well as to the way individuals face the current mayhem.

Since World War II we have seen a rapid decline in what Churchill called “Christian civilisation”. He was committed to defending our Bible influenced democratic society and totally opposed to any sort of appeasement with the evil of Naziism. Appeasement is likely to involve compromising with sin: an acceptance that battling against sin is futile. It is seen, therefore, as both pragmatic and sensible when the opposition seems indomitable.

History has shown, however, that it is not safe to trust the liberal innocence of leaders who are blinkered by a belief in the nobility of human nature, the invincibility of logic and the conviction that others will act rationally.

Sin is a fact and it must be challenged: we are witnessing the power of darkness. The evildoers are not only delighting in their ability to manipulate the appeasers, they are infiltrating and influencing those governments where there is a reluctance to confront the issues that are undermining social cohesion. Just-cause grievance groups have been hijacked by militants and turned into aggressive anti-authoritarian movements. We used to talk about the battle for hearts and minds – it is now the battle for souls.

Through labyrinthian and all-encompassing intrigue, society is being broken down, and that is as intended by the “puppet masters” who are close to achieving the next stage in their endeavours to establish a “New World Order”. Surely what Jesus said, to the leaders of Israel when He was arrested, now applies to the whole world: “But this is your hour, when darkness reigns”. (Luke 22:53)

National and Individual

The tempest is swirling around us and whether we sink or swim depends on where we fix our gaze. Are our eyes on the chaos and turmoil or concentrating on Jesus? When self-consideration enters in, we sink. Devotion to Jesus is the foundation of our security and well-being, not devotion to causes. Devotion embodies obedience. Obedience to Jesus may lead us into causes for the benefit of mankind, but not the other way round!

Much of the church has chosen to adjust its behaviour, and reinterpret or ignore the difficult aspects of the Word of God. They do so in order to meet the demands of the liberal agenda that has permeated “postmodern” thinking and undermined the values that once reinforced society. Truth is considered subjective: if you think you are a Christian, then you are one!

As we enter this time of great trouble and sorrow, the challenges are enormous. Tribulation has been prophesied; it is not appropriate to pray against biblical prophecy. The time of distress is inevitable, its fires will either burn up a great deal of shallowness and concentrate our thoughts on what has real value, or they will make us bitter and resentful. We are in the valley of decision: it has never been so vital for Christians to make a stand.

There are many middle class, complacent church goers who are adamant (convinced) that they are Christians (the Nicodemus syndrome?). Who will tell them that if they have not given their lives to Jesus and been baptised in the Spirit, they are not Christians? Who would dare to say that they are bound for Hell? To do so would be offensive and completely unacceptable in our post-modern liberal society.

This week the Lord has made it clear to me that there is no special corner in heaven with a little bit of hell in it, set aside to cater for those who want to keep a foot in both camps.

Keeping quiet about the reality of the Word of God, in order to avoid confrontation, is appeasement!

The Lord said to me: “NO MORE APPEASEMENT”.

Dream of the ‘Prince of Persia’ and the ‘head’ of the USA

I read this account before continuing blogging on the US election (Thursday) and realised it makes a most suitable follow-on. After prayerful weighing with our mutual friend Chris Moyler, Martin Perry submitted this prophetic dream and his conclusion impresses me for two reasons, as in the footnote. It also relates to a concluding part of the word Amanda Grace brought, as herein.

‘THE PRINCE OF PERSIA’ – a short dream.

I believe the following dream and explanation is to give God’s stratagem to defeat Satan’s plans for the world and to offer encouragement in the exposure of those plans.

In the dream I saw a soldier of middle-eastern looks, I believe he was representing “The Prince of Persia” – see Daniel 10:13.

He had happened upon what looked like, the head of a beautiful white American woman of about 28 years. old,. She was beautiful and had long black hair. Seeing this as a highly desirable trophy, he cut the head into quarter sections – front to back and side to side.

He then lifted up the right-hand side of the quartered head which had the face showing, and wrapped it up, and put into his bag as a souvenir, a trophy, for himself. There was no blood in the head. The other three quarters were of no interest to him and they were left behind.

He was very pleased with himself and was smiling at his victory!

I believe the head represents the “HEAD” of the USA, a country divided by Satan into quarters. The right and left sides of the face represent the visible parts of the USA; its political right and left wings. The back two parts of the head represent the parts of the US that are not visible; its silent majority.

The only section which he is interested in is the front “Right” section, since the other front section, the “Left,” is already in his power. And the two back sections, “the silent majority”, have no mouth; hence no voice and are therefore not a threat to his plans.

Having cut the “Right” out of the equation, he knew that the rest of the head was either silent or else in agreement with his wishes,. So this victory was very sweet indeed.

In the dream I was standing in front of the soldier, but remote from the action and invisible to him.

As he was packing his bag he heard a noise, which came from behind me. I could only see the soldier and not the beings who were making the noise, as they were approaching him.

The soldier looked up and his face changed from joy to terror as a blade of some sort fell on his neck with great speed, accuracy and supreme power. In one blow, his head was severed from his body, flew through the air and rolled across the ground some distance from his carcase. There was no possibility of recovery. I believe the noise was created by God’s heavenly host, the divine army.

In the dream, for a minute or so, he continued to expel air from his mouth in a painful sigh. I know that in the natural this is impossible, but this was the dream.

I believe it is a picture showing the end of all the doings and shenanigans etc, of the Cabal / World-wide Deep-State. At this present time, it believes it has the victory. But its end is coming very soon.

And when it comes, it will be swift and very decisive. There will be no possibility of the head being reconnected even though, for a while, its sound continues to be heard.

This means that those who continue to believe in, and push for, the Deep-State ideal will have to rebuild it from scratch, as with a new-born baby. The world-wide Cabal will have been so seriously unravelled that there is no way possible that it will continue to exist in its present form.

However, we do know from The Revelation of Jesus Christ given to apostle John that, in the final 7 years of this present Age, it will be allowed to rise again in a different form. Rebuilding will take years of time and effort. So, this looks like a very substantial victory for God’s Kingdom over this present world.

I also had a sense that the soldier who was executed was about 25 years old. This represents Satan’s Kingdom as possessing considerable strength and vigour at this time. The soldier, as a virile young man, has a proud sense of his own worth.  But he has yet to reach his full Satanic maturity and wisdom.

Summary

In truth America has not been beheaded, which is why there was no blood. This was, I believe, why I saw her as a head without a body. The “HEAD” was more like a fine and beautifully executed work of art – something real in the soldier’s mind, but not the reality.

The present position of Biden in the White House is a good parallel. His position appears to be real, but it is not!

In the same way, “The Prince of Persia” believes that USA (the woman in my dream) has been delivered into his power, because he has destroyed the power of the right wing, through this stolen election.

But it is all an illusion.

Lastly, why did I see the soldier as Middle Eastern, as the “Prince of Persia?”

In Scripture, we see this Prince resisting Michael, as he comes to answer Daniel’s prayer for Israel’s restoration.

Satan’s goal has always been to establish his throne in Jerusalem, from where he can proclaim his complete sovereignty over the earth, and bring to an end God’s plans for mankind’s full redemption.

In order to achieve this goal, he must destroy the USA, which is both the most powerful nation in the earth, and the most powerful expression of the JUDAEO-CHRISTIAN basis of civilisation.

Only then can “The Prince of Persia,” the Number 1 enemy of modern Israel, arise.

Every Blessing
Martin, 27 June 2021

RB Footnote: Martin’s conclusion relates to a prophetic word brought the evening before I read this and at the close of a zoom meeting with Catch The Fire Farnborough. Also, those points are directly relevant to how the Lord’s invisible hand brought my attention, as an anti-church New Ager, to the truth of the Bible’s End-times prophecies, as told in my brief Bio Info.

Prophet’s message of move of the Lord in USA and Canada confirms my insight on book beyond Bible’s back-cover!

WOWEE 🙂 PRAISE THE LORD! – Upon listening to this video whilst sunning myself during lunch, at 50 minutes I get to the close of Barry’s message and four minutes later am very sure of what he’s going to say next on what happened after the back-cover fell off his notebook during prayer for a top-ranking US official. And yes, my hunch is correct – we connect!

10 YEARS AGO I was blessed to receive a similar insight on God ‘s book beyond the Bible’s Book of Revelation: that is beyond the Bible’s back-cover!!

What Barry hears direct from Father expands upon my brief grasp of what He’s doing – but it’s the first time I’ve heard anyone refer to the ‘weird’ word He’d dropped into my spirit, as in Supermoon Monday’s Blood Moon and The Age To Come (Sep 2015):

The Book Beyond the Bible

‘At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, it comes after The Apocalypse, or Revelation, given to Jesus Christ for showing to and recording by His close disciple, the Apostle John.

‘As noted in Revival 1: Glory Stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its implicit existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!

‘That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.’

May This Video Bless You…

The prophetic visions and words Barry brings are mightily encouraging – and in my opinion, that personal confirmation ‘seals the deal’. His visions tell how the Lord is dealing with the deep evil across US & Canada, and within government.

It’s the first time I’ve heard Barry and appreciate his warrior prayer-mode and note how the Holy Spirit acts upon him to confirm various details of his message. It is good to know that he doesn’t follow media and other prophets.  Here’s just a few items…

June 17th Vision (11 min) – saw newspaper momentously historic front-page headlines ‘Victory! DJT sweeps the nation’, and then saw masses of people coming out onto streets to celebrate like at the end of wartime.
Was taken outside White House and saw those who’d conspired evil plans, committed crimes against humanity, removed from by military and restrained with handcuffs and shackles – the crowds cheered and sang anthems!
Sight of teams of lawyers being sent to abroad to deal with criminal foreign leaders.

US-Canada Prayer Teams Meeting (21 min) –  saw army of angels slaughtering demons and escorting high-level anonymous American official into high-tech facility to be given code machines used for globalist control.

There’s lots more on how the Lord is moving mightily in these days…

Barry is based in Alberta, about which I especially liked hearing how the Lord is working there because our favorite TV series (Heartland) is situated in its vast countryside.

Modern Babylon is fallen – Johnny Enlow

You may recall my recommendation of Johnny Enlow’s superb teaching on how Trump’s actions and the political state of America mirrors the fall of ancient Babylon to Persian king Cyrus.

In Johnny’s latest analysis of events he teaches from OT prophet Jeremiah (chapter 50) and stresses the similarity between the ancient Hebrew ‘shepherds’ and today’s church leaders in failing to take charge and rule from the ‘mountains’ – ie. “Occupy until I return” as emphasised by J.C Ryle (1816-1900), first Bishop of Liverpool, in his seminal Are You Ready For The End Of Time?

Johnny Enlow’s brief focus on that topic reminded me of the Lord showing me Ezekiel 34, Shepherds and Sheep, 28 years ago as I urgently needed a promise therein, which bore fruit when I espied that chapter being the theme of an Ellel Ministries conference. This led me to receiving in-depth ministry I was seeking for having been involved in the New Age. (I was later blessed to serve on their prayer ministry teams for several years and where I met my dear Nina.)

Now, in ‘coming back to the future’ I trust some of my recent blogs have given sufficient background to his connecting prophetic scripture to today’s events in this video (in view of length I prefer high-speed playback with captions as I’m familiar with the material):

This ace teaching is introduced on his Facebook timeline by my friend Chris Moyler and which, along with his brief summary, generates a valuable discussion with John Barber in extracts shown below. (Please excuse compact text as re-formatting takes time – Fb inserts 2 lines of coding between each of its ‘paragraphs’): Continue reading

Monday Newsmix 1: US Bishops vs. Biden

BEWARE: this and the following posts cover unsavoury and unsettling content, for which I trust my readers will understand the need for Christians to be well aware of the rampant satanic battle that’s being waged globally.

Also, please note that, as a born-again Christian I endeavour to be non-partisan in political matters. Some issues are distinctly either pro- or anti- Godly principles and I try to address those as and when I can, but some – like the following – demand a strong, vociferous response.

Click image to read article in full (patience req’d over adverts)

Last October the bishop of Tennessee Rick Stika challenged Joe Biden on how, as a so-called Catholic, he’ll explain to God his stanch support for restriction-free abortion, as well as transgender-issues. This was followed in early November by former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and Secretary General to the Governorate of the Vatican City, Archbishop Viganò issuing a very strongly worded statement, as blogged herein.

In February the Archbishop of Kansas City warned everyone not to be duped about Biden’s claim to being a devout Catholic AND that he should stop defining himself as such!  See also Catholic League against Biden and Pelosi anti-Christian Policies and Tyranny.

Let me be perfectly frank > when a national leader’s personal sin seriously affects the policies of a government to the extent it gives demonic access rights into the entire nation, then it most definitely is NOT a private matter. In times past, Catholic kings were required to perform acts of public penance to show they were truly contrite.

THEREFORE, IF BIDEN TRULY IS A BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST AS HIS PERSONAL SAVIOUR AND REDEEMER, THEN ALL HIS BRETHREN IN AMERICA  AND GLOBALLY  EXPECT TO SEE A TRUE REPENTANCE AND TURNING AROUND FROM HIS SINS – presuming he has, in actual fact, honestly acknowledged and confessed them!!

HOWEVER, there are many other ‘personal’ peculiarities have come to the light of day that engender GRAVE concerns over Biden’s real ‘devotions’… or predictions!

For example, here’s a couple of detailed exposes from Jack Dennis over the ‘Pond’ in Texas:

Sniffy Joe;  America’s Disgrace and ‘Groper-in-Chief’

The Whistle-blower Interview (Pt 4) about Biden, Hunter Underage Sex and FBI

AND the following report implicitly confirms those claims about children, plus opening the US southern border to child-sex trafficking (click to read and bear with bad language)…

Utterly repugnant and distasteful, but please don’t say you haven’t been warned…

By the way…

Insights into the Rapture and Jesus’ Return

Maxine David in Nova Scotia writes in response to Chris G Bennett’s sharing Johnny Enlow’s “I heard Goliath go THUD. Babylon is fallen!” on 3rd June (emphases mine):

‘I had a vision or visitation through the night last night here in Nova Scotia. I had watched a Youtube video of a brother in Christ who was somewhere in the USA I assume, in a mountainous area, who said God took him into the future in the Spirit, to see what it would be like where he was, after the rapture. Said the one world government was put in place and people had to leave their homes and tough it out out in the wilderness because the one world gov’t was set up and they only way they could keep their homes, bank accounts and so on was to take the mark.

‘It really threw me as I had been hearing things from the Lord about those who remain standing firm in Christ, reigning with Him in His Kingdom – the complete opposite. So the Lord woke up me in the middle of the night and began a series of revelation and visions to show me the difference. I understand it to be the difference between what He’s doing in USA versus Canada. Two different things, keeping them separate in order for each to stand in the gap for one another. After hours of walking through it with Him, it came back to what He’s doing with Trump on the ground. LOL.

‘First, I saw in the Spirit the round circle symbol used on British military planes since 1915. In my mind I understand it to also symbolize the rock group ‘the Who’, as they also used it for their tours and albums. Canadians are big ‘Who’ fans and I saw them a couple of times in Toronto. So it all congeals in my mind as a combination of Battle for Britain (I come from the same hometown as the man put in charge of aircraft production for the Battle of Britain – Max Aitken); and some very memorable Who songs that now bear great relevance to me: “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and “Talking ‘Bout My Generation”, for example.

‘The lyrics to “Won’t Get Fooled Again” are often going through my mind, and I feel it’s God’s way of keeping me alert, speaking to me through things I’ve experienced: “I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution; Take a bow for the new revolution; Smile and grin at the change all around; Pick up my guitar and play; Just like yesterday; Then I’ll get on my knees and pray; We don’t get fooled again.” It’s a powerful way to reach the younger generations with this kind of ministry.

‘Anyway, that’s just one thing the Lord showed me as a Kingdom-hearted Canadian. From the Canadian perspective the spiritual battle is ‘in the air’ and related to the New Jerusalem’s intercession for USA / Israel on the ground. (LOL, I just heard in the Spirit “It’s a GATED community!”)

Then I heard the Lord call me to drive to New Glasgow today, to meet Him ‘in the air’. New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, is the location where the Scottish first landed in Canada. When I even thought about going there, I saw an open heaven and the Lord Himself riding on a horse. I heard in the Spirit “Behold He comes, riding on the clouds, shining like the sun at the TRUMPET call. Lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee, and out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes.”  I heard the word ‘Captain” as in “Captain of the angel armies” and the word ‘TRUMPET’ in the air showed me an open heaven with a TRUMP on the ground, ready to do battle on earth as He is in heaven.

Then the Lord started to sing to ME “Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty, early in the morning my song shall rise to thee..” 

I felt it coming from my own heart, as if greeting the Lord ‘in the air’. Constantly feeling like the victory for Canada begins with the UK and manifests in joining the battle on the ground in USA.

So I’m going to drive to New Glasgow today and see what happens next. Hallelujah for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns.

I ask, “From this do you sense the Rapture will happen after the major harvest of souls and revival arising from the Glory of the Lord becoming widespread? Maxine replies:

As it relates to the Rapture, as I think I wrote before, I believe I’ve been hearing from the Lord that the timeline is pushed back to take in another generation for a billion-fold harvest. All this stuff I’m seeing today comes to me as ALL being part of the rapture as it’s happening ‘in the air’ in a way that heaven comes to earth and meets me in the air. It feels like it’s part of being a Kingdom son for whom all of creation awaits, and it’s all about redemption of whatever can be redeemed in the fullness of His Kingdom. I didn’t get a sense of going UP anywhere, but instead see open visions of heaven while I’m on the ground.

‘Reading of these brothers and sisters is very exciting.’

Therefore I added:

’Also I’d remind you of what I shared last year about the word Paul Keith Davis gave me 12-15 yrs ago. In walking up an aisle at Bath City Church to give a word to someone at the back, he went past me sitting immediately alongside that aisle but suddenly whilst l walking he looked me directly in the eye and said, “Await His Return!”

’Someone I know – and of our age – confided a similar insight as applying for himself. AND a lady I know in her early 90’s believes she too will still be alive for the Rapture!!

’SOoo if those ‘words’ are true then we haven’t too long to go!’

PS. I informed Maxine about publication and she says,

“I was talking about this just yesterday to some people in my home. His Presence is unmistakable. It leaves a believer like Daniel, totally shaken to the core, feeling like I’ve died but I’m still breathing. Yet the holiness is ‘to die for’ anyway.

WOW what timing! I ‘d started drafting this 10 days ago but unable to action ’til now!

RB FOOTNOTE:

Upon re-reading to edit, I’m strongly struck in my spirit by Maxine’s hearing descriptive reference to “Captain of the angel armies”. That’s exactly the understanding I had upon seeing the heavenly battle on the night of my personal life-changing visitation over the night of 13-14 Sept 1989.

Visions of the Rapture

The essential matter mentioned a fortnight ago on my ‘back to basics’ refocusing upon Jesus’ Return definitely has not gone away and we’re now going to weigh and pray about a couple more folks’ perspectives. [See Holy Spirit says “Brace yourself! Get ready for Jesus’ soon Return and Supra-natural light of God’s glory is manifesting... as well as Chris G Bennett’s recent four postings]

Scott Hefty has been following this blog for years but got in touch only last October to confide a couple of awesome, unforgettable visions he’d experienced relating to the ‘snatching away’ or Rapture of all believers in Jesus. We discussed them and I asked approval to publish, which he kindly gave. Events arising out of the 2020 presidential election delayed my publication, however, until the time is right – that is, now!

Here’s what Scott saw in Maryland, with a brief preface, as copied from his email reply:

As for the Rapture…

The first vision was the most powerful in my life and has guided me in many ways. More about this below, but first…

Do they give me any sense of timescale for the Rapture and Return?

Yes. It was clearly the time in which we live, meaning, I was driving the car I owned in 1991 to what was my home in the vision. (In reality, the house still belongs to the parents of a close friend). The bottom line is, I believe that I will not taste death, but I will be among those alive in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17.

For the timeline, I look at Matthew 24:34: “Truly I tell you: the present generation will live to see it all.” However, in verse 36 Jesus tells us that, “Yet about that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, not even the Son: no one but the Father alone.” (Oxford Study Bible, Revised English Bible)

I understand “the present generation” to be those born in the time that Israel is back in her land, so I agree the century of 1950 – 2050 is our focus without saying a specific day and time. Just like the fig tree, we can see the season is soon upon us.

1990s Visions of the Rapture

In the late ’90s, (1996-1999) I was blessed with a vision in which another friend named Dave and I were at the gas station (petrol for the Brits)…In the dream I was at the gas pump filling up when suddenly a massive black cloud formed with wind blowing. As I looked up, there was a loud crack in the sky and the center of the cloud opened and Jesus was there. I looked around for Dave and he was coming out of the store with the drinks looking up in amazement. I said “Dave, it is our Lord Jesus” and we both went up to be with the Lord. I could see others from the town joining us. Similarly, I would just about reach Jesus and I would wake up. I saw this vision 2 more times but in the second and third times, our wives joined us as we went up into the clouds.

2014 Vision of ‘The Bubble’

My Maryland men’s group travels a couple of hours every spring for a retreat at New Life Bible Camp in Pennsylvania. We join some other men’s groups from the area so there are about 50 of us there. This dream/vision took place in the “upper room” of the lodge where we worship and listen to our speaker for teaching. In the vision we are there having worship with our brothers. I notice that my parents, who passed away in 2012 & 2103, are there along with some other people that I don’t know. Then Jesus walks into the room and is standing at the corner of the railing at the top of the steps. Jesus says “Greetings everyone. We are heading home this evening.” The next moment, the room is hovering above the trees encapsulated in a clear bubble. We begin to ascend and we continue to worship as I am filled with joy in not only seeing Jesus and going home, but also in seeing my parents again.

This vision replayed twice more over the next couple of months without much variation.

I pray these visions bring blessing to you and glory to God. Thanks for letting me write them down. It is the first time I have done so. I believe God is calling me to share them more often now that “the imminence of that harvest day becomes increasingly obvious” (from today’s Richard’s Watch – ).

Scott Hefty, 10.10.2020
PS – More about the First Vision.

In my dream, I was driving the car I owned in 1991, which was a 1972 Cadillac with the roof cut off like a convertible with the roof down…As I drove into the driveway, which was David’s parents’ house, the song “Grave Robber” by Petra was playing on my car radio and from all the open garages on the cul-de-sac. I suddenly heard a loud sound like a crack in the sky and a shout from above. I looked up and I saw Jesus in the clouds. I immediately rose up into the air. As I was ascending in the vision, I thought: “This is the rapture !!!” Then I thought, “No, this is just a dream. I will wake up any second now.” When I didn’t wake up and I kept ascending, I yelled out “Jesus, Jesus, my Jesus !!!” I reached out my arms to wrap them around his shoulders, and just as my fingertips were an inch away, I felt my wife shaking me awake. My shouting in the vision was making a terrible sound to her. When I told her what I had just experienced she was amazed.

I had this dream/vision 2 more times over the next month or two. The second time it was exactly the same, except my wife Debbie was there in the yard and we went up to meet the Lord in the air holding hands. The third time was exactly the same as the second vision, except we had a son and all of us went up to meet the Lord in the air holding hands.(Now we have 3 sons).

The strange thing is that at the time I wanted to tell David, but I knew he was still unsaved and it would never have made sense to him…Fast forward to 2020 and I recently reconnected with David on Facebook…I know from his profile and posts that he is a believer in Christ now. Praise God. I now am just now feeling led to tell him about this because he will, with his renewed mind, be able to understand and be blessed by the vision that involves his parents’ house.

I used to obsess about the house. Thinking I must have to live there for this to come to pass. Whether I do or don’t live there; and wherever we are when the trumpet blasts and the archangel shouts, we will see Him in the air. We will go and meet the Lord in the air.

The Rapture Revisited — JRB Publications

Thank you to my friend (and author of a useful book outlining Prophets of the Bible) for having inserted a link to this helpful summary in a Fbk discussion thread about the Glory and Jesus’ return – don’t you love his play on words in the above title!

Teaching concerning the Rapture (definition given below) continues to divide Christians who give the subject of Jesus Second Coming much thought, which sadly many these days do not. We live in, as I have often remarked, a paradigm when polarization among Christians is on the markedly increase. There are the fundie-leaning Evangelicals and the liberal-leaning Evangelicals […click to continue reading at…] The Rapture revisited — JRB Publications

Eschatologically speaking – Chris G Bennett

Chris posted this on Facebook Friday 28th May and I greatly appreciate his stance:

ESCHATOLOGICALLY SPEAKING

Following my recent post on the coming King – “Soon and Very Soon We’re Going to See the King” – I’ve seen much discussion on exactly what that means. Is it the Rapture? Is it Revival? Is it Armageddon and the Return to Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives?

This is a very personal response to those questions, and I know there will be many who disagree with me, but here’s my current thinking – and before anyone starts to shout, “You’re wrong!”, I want to quote a scripture – “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12)

NONE of us, NOT ONE, is anywhere close to being the sole arbiter of truth. Please remember that and choose your words carefully IF you wish to comment in disagreement.

Armageddon and the Return – I really do think there’s a few things, biblical prophecies like the rebuilt Temple, the Antichrist, the Gospel taken to every tribe and tongue, and more, to be fulfilled before Jesus returns. However, there’s also much being fulfilled of late, many signs, which gives us the impression that it will be sooner rather than later. I think this is not yet, but events are moving very quickly and it could just surprise a few folk!

The Rapture – ah, the Rapture! With so much disagreement over whether or not there will even be a “Rapture”, the discussions over this topic are endless. But in the context of ‘Soon and very soon’, I do believe it could be quite imminent.

There are those who vehemently disagree with this, who say it’s not for years yet, I’ve even heard as much as hundreds of years!  Whilst I respect them, I also disagree with them.

When Jesus tells me, whispers to me, (emphasis RB’s) that He’s coming VERY, VERY SOON, I tend to listen to Him. When He shouts it – I sit up and pay close attention. I’m not saying any of us is right or wrong, I’m only saying, telling, reporting that which I believe I’ve heard from the Lord Himself!

For those who believe as I do, there’s the belief that the Antichrist, the man of iniquity, cannot be revealed until after the Rapture – and that’s just for starters. The subject is so huge that I don’t wish to start another pointless, endless argument – I’m just stating my personal position. Many may well have different views. That’s OK too.

Revival – another ‘hot potato’ in the church! Revival has started already! Maybe not in a church near you, but it has started elsewhere in the world! The thing is that it really is different from anything we’ve seen before! To those who look for another Welsh Revival or another Azusa Street – how can it possibly be the same – that was over 100 years ago! It won’t be like the Hebridean Revival, or Argentina, or Toronto, Brownsville, Lakeland, the Bay nor any other recent move of God.

There will be an outburst of the ‘greater things will you do’ of which Jesus spoke. Greater miracles, greater wonders, more and greater signs, way beyond our imagination, will be the hallmark of this revival.

So, “Soon and Very Soon We’re Going to See the King”, what does it actually mean?

Does it mean He’s coming in Revival, in Rapture, in His physical Return to Jerusalem?

Well, I’ve already said that I don’t believe it is His physical return, but I do believe it will be BOTH Revival AND Rapture – Revival then Rapture. Revival, already started, carrying on for some time, then concluding with Rapture. How long? 5 or 6 years is my belief – within the next ten years at least!

There you have my personal position! I don’t mind if you disagree because I’m not the sole arbiter of truth, but neither are you. This is not a discussion, just a response to questions.

“This is ALL about to be fulfilled!” (as heard 12 years ago)

In view of a dispute in 2008 over one of Jesus’ parables I had to check what the Bible actually states. What happened next was so unexpected and revelatory! Excitement exploded upon audibly hearing God’s voice. I emailed church friends and a few leaders about it and thus began occasional updates on current events relevant to Biblical prophecies, which led into the launch of this blog in November 2011.

The ‘God-incidental’ jigsaw pieces described in this week’s personal posts (rather than news-related items) warrant my republishing the very first piece shown to others.:

THE END-GAME IS NOW IN PLAY

Dear Friends – further to Rev’d William Smith’s recent request re Christian Freedom, may I offer some observations upon our times and, in another message, suggest a way forward?

Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt13:36). So I went to check scripture but upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW!!

Hence, my previous remarks about a sifting of the Church – in preparation for a rapid ‘sHifting’? Jesus urged His disciples to look out for and observe signs of the times. Regarding their questions about His return at the end of this Age, the earliest Gospel account has Jesus stressing 7 times, Watch…be alert…on your guard (Mark 13). Matthew 24 reports Jesus saying 4 times, Watch…and when you see…” followed by the parables of the burglar and of the virgins:> “Don’t be caught napping!” [Is the Church still asleep?] Luke’s account has, “Be always on the watch…” (ch21:36) and chpt 12 (NIV) has sections on watchfulness and interpreting the times. In each Gospel Jesus commands, Learn the lesson of the fig tree…”. Also, the Apostles went on to give more indicators (Acts 3:20-1, Hebrews 12:26-7, 2 Peter 3, 2 Timothy 3 and the first and second letters to the Thessalonians).

Have you studied or read/heard/given any teaching on this topic lately? So, let’s watch closely what’s happening here and globally. …continued here

Let us, however, keep our eyes fixed on Jesus as we await the blessed hope of His glorious appearing. May the Lord bless you and keep you and yours,
