Bible Update: Russia’s lead in Middle-East recognised

Vladimir Putin’s ‘twin summits’ with Benjamin Netanyahu and then with Donald Trump, bring this update on developments relating to the Gog-Magog alliance, as foretold by Ezekiel. (Click this posts tags for background, and links for full reports):

16 July: Trump & Putin agree on keeping Israel safe (but) not much else – ‘Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin told the press that their two-hour face-to-face on Monday, July 16, in Helsinki, was a success. But, the impression was that there was very little agreement on the issues they touched on, including Iran, Syria or Crimea. Neither referred to the removal of Iran and its proxies from Syria, as Israel has demanded. Putin appeared to say that Israeli security was served by the Israeli-Syrian 1974 Separation of Forces agreement on the Golan and advised extending it to the Syrian-Jordanian border as well. Trump noted: “We both talk to Benjamin Netanyahu, work with him on Syria and agree on the importance of Israel’s safety.”..It would seem that the high speculation ahead of the summit of a deal in the making between the two presidents for Iran to quit Syria in return for a US military pullback was pie in the sky.’

16 July Debka Exclusive: Netanyahu’s secret consent to hand Golan crossing to Syria led to Trump-Putin deal on Israel’s border security‘(Trump and Putin) joined in their support for Israel’s security (as above) after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told them both that he had withdrawn his objections to the Syrian army reinstating its line of outposts in the Quenitra district, including control of the Ein Zivan-Quneitra border crossing. This is the only transit point between Israel and Syria….’

18 July: Secret Helsinki deal: US & Israel hand Russia controlling role on Syria’s Israel-Jordan borders ‘…DEBKAfile has obtained exclusive access to this deal and can reveal for the first time that it provides for the handover to Russian responsibility of all parts of southern and southwestern Syria abutting on the Israeli and Jordanian borders, including, most importantly, surveillance and observation elevations that oversee all parts of Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and the eastern Mediterranean. Trump and Binyamin Netanyahu thereby gave Putin a valuable asset for boosting Russia’s military presence in Syria and the region at large…’ (emphasis added)

For a better grasp of President’s Trump’s apparently incorrect and/or muddled remarks on investigations into Russian hacking read investigative journalist Melanie Phillips’ in-depth analysis in The Hysteria Over Helsinki and the Real Threat to the Free World.

Melanie wisely concludes (emphases mine):

‘Trump’s personality flaws – his self-obsession, his lack of attention span, his thin skin against criticism, his inability to speak carefully and accurately – are plain for all to see. The crucial point, however, is not what Trump says, nor the content of his character, but what he does and what he achieves.

‘And here’s what Putin said that was potentially so significant. For his remarks suggested that he would support Trump’s attempts to defang both Iran and North Korea. If Trump turns out to have succeeded in detaching Russia from Iran over Syria and from China over North Korea, that would be a huge step towards defeating two of the most evil and dangerous regimes in the world.

‘Seen in this light, the reaction of the media and political class to the Helsinki press conference was not just hysterical and disproportionate and a display of near-pathological hatred towards Donald Trump, but a malevolent undermining of the most promising attempt for years to tackle some of the major threats to the peace and security of the world.’

Veronika West: a ‘Now’ word for the UK concerning Brexit

A ‘NOW’ WORD CONCERNING BREXIT…! U.K.

“LISTEN! FOR I HAVE DECREED FREEDOM OVER THE UNITED KINGDOM, WATCH! FOR THE WHOLE NATION WILL PASS BY ON DRY GROUND”!

Today while praying and interceding concerning BREXIT the Holy Spirit suddenly quickened to me Joshua 3, “THE ISRAELITES CROSS OVER THE JORDAN”, as I quickly turned to read the chapter, I heard the Spirit clearly say these words, “LISTEN! FOR I HAVE DECREED FREEDOM OVER THE UNITED KINGDOM, WATCH! FOR THE WHOLE NATION WILL PASS BY ON DRY GROUND”!

Now as I remained listening to the Holy Spirit suddenly the football game between England and Columbia was again quickened to me and the Holy Spirit said to me,

“WATCH AND PRAY! FOR THE NATION NOW STANDS ON THE BANKS OF THE JORDAN (Freedom), WATCH! AS YOUR ENEMIES WILL BE DRIVEN OUT BEFORE YOU AND COMPLETELY CUT OFF, FOR THE CURSE HAS BEEN LIFTED OVER THE LAND, IT’S TIME TO ADVANCE, ITS TIME TO CROSS OVER INTO THE LAND THAT I HAVE PROMISED YOU”!

On hearing those powerful words the Spirit of God then highlighted to me the young goal Keeper in the England Team who saved the last penalty which gave England the VICTORY, his name is ‘JORDAN PICKFORD’, as I looked at his name (JORDAN) the Holy Spirit Immediately confirmed to me the words that I had just heard concerning the Nation…!

I PROPHESY THE UNITED KINGDOM IS CROSSING OVER IN FREEDOM HAVING VICTORY OVER HER ENEMIES…!

Joshua 3; THE ISRAELITES CROSS OVER THE JORDAN”
1. Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”

Joshua said to the priests, “Take up the ark of the covenant and pass on ahead of the people.” So they took it up and went ahead of them.

And the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I will begin to exalt you in the eyes of all Israel, so they may know that I am with you as I was with Moses. Tell the priests who carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the edge of the Jordan’s waters, go and stand in the river.’”

Joshua said to the Israelites, “Come here and listen to the words of the Lord your God. This is how you will know that the living God is among you and that he will certainly drive out before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites.

See, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth will go into the Jordan ahead of you. Now then, choose twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe. And as soon as the priests who carry the ark of the Lord—the Lord of all the earth—set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream will be cut off and stand up in a heap.”

So when the people broke camp to cross the Jordan, the priests carrying the ark of the covenant went ahead of them. Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam in the vicinity of Zarethan, while the water flowing down to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea) was completely cut off. So the people crossed over opposite Jericho.

The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord stopped in the middle of the Jordan and stood on dry ground, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.

Veronika West, evening of Friday 6th July 2018

Is weighing vs. restoration on God’s agenda in EU vs. UK?

This was published a week ago today, Saturday 30th June, by Veronika West. As with  all prophetic words and visions it is offered for weighing with the Lord and testing:

A POWERFUL DREAM CONCERNING THE UNITED KINGDOM, BREXIT AND MANY NATIONS IN EUROPE….;

WATCH AND PRAY OVER THE HARVEST FIELDS OF EUROPE, WATCH AND BE READY! FOR THE GNAWING LOCUSTS, SWARMING LOCUSTS, CREEPING AND STRIPPING LOCUSTS HAVE BEEN UNLEASHED AND THEY SHALL DEVOUR AND DEVASTATE THE LAND!

A few days ago during a 7-day fast, I had a very powerful dream that I believe speaks to the United Kingdom, BREXIT, the EU and many Nations of Europe. Now in this clear and vivid dream I was standing high above the centre of Europe. Now in the dream As I looked down at the different countries of Europe my eyes were immediately drawn to what looked like a large black cloud in the shape of a man’s hand rising from the depths of the sea. Now as I remained watching in the dream, I saw that the large black cloud was moving quickly, and rapidly increasing in size, I watched as the hand grew larger and larger and I saw the five fingers of the hand grow longer and longer. Now in the dream I could clearly see the large, black hand fast approaching the centre of Europe.

Now as I stayed watching, suddenly I saw the fingers of the hand begin to write these words upon the landscape of Europe,

“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN”!,

Then I heard these words,

“EUROPE, EUROPE WAKE UP AND WAIL, RETURN AND REPENT FOR THE DAYS OF YOUR REIGN HAVE BEEN NUMBERED, YOU HAVE BEEN WEIGHED ON THE SCALES AND FOUND WANTING, YOUR KINGDOM WILL BE DIVIDED FOR YOU HAVE EATEN THE DELICACIES OF DARKNESS AND WITCHCRAFT AND THE DOOR TO DEATH AND DESTRUCTION HAS BEEN OPENED WIDE OVER THE LAND”, says the Spirit of God.

“EUROPE, EUROPE, WATCH AND PRAY OVER THE HARVEST FIELDS, FOR THE LOCUSTS ARE NOW INVADING, THE GNAWING LOCUSTS, THE SWARMING LOCUSTS, THE CREEPING LOCUSTS AND THE STRIPPING LOCUSTS SHALL MULTIPLY AND INCREASE. WATCH! FOR DARKNESS INCREASES AS THE HAND OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION NOW MOVES UPON THE WATERS OF THE SEA AND LAND”, says the Spirit of God.

As I heard those words in the spirit realm going forth across the land, I began to CRY OUT FOR GOD’S MERCY, MERCY, MERCY IN THE MIDST OF JUDGEMENT OVER EUROPE..!

Then the dream suddenly shifted and I found myself standing over the land of the United Kingdom and I saw an ANCIENT DOOR OPEN WIDE OVER THE NATION, as I looked at the door I saw these words, “FIRE EXIT”, written upon its mantle; now as I looked at the words “FIRE EXIT” I saw the number (91) deeply engraved into the wood of the door. Immediately the Holy Spirit whispered to me, “Psalm 91”, then I heard these words,

“MY BELOVED GREAT BRITAIN, WATCH! FOR A DOOR OF DELIVERANCE NOW OPENS UP BEFORE YOU, MY MERCY NOW MAKES A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMED NO WAY, MY BELOVED, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU I AM THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO LIFE, COME AND ENTER IN QUICKLY, FOR NOW IS THE TIME, NOW IS THE SEASON, FOR THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO DOUBLE RESTORATION AND RESTITUTION STANDS OPEN BEFORE YOU THIS DAY”! (The Dream Ended)…!

PSALM 91 “A DOOR OF DELIVERANCE STANDS OPEN BEFORE THE UNITED KINGDOM, ENTER IN QUICKLY!”, says the Lord….!
Safe and Secure
When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai,
you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.
2 He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me,
the only God for me, and my great confidence.
3 He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy,
and he will protect you from false accusation
and any deadly curse.
4 His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you.
You can run under his covering of majesty and hide.
His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.
5 You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night
nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you.
6 Don’t fear a thing!
Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you,
nor will the powers of evil launched against you.
7 Even in a time of disaster, with thousands and thousands being killed,
you will remain unscathed and unharmed.
8 you will be a spectator as the wicked perish in judgment,
for they will be paid back for what they have done!
9–10 When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High,
our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm.
How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?
11 God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go,
defending you from all harm.
12 If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you
and keep you from stumbling.
13 You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness,
trampling every one of them beneath your feet!
14 For here is what the Lord has spoken to me:
“Because you have delighted in me as my great lover,
I will greatly protect you.
I will set you in a high place, safe and secure before my face.
15 I will answer your cry for help every time you pray,
and you will find and feel my presence
even in your time of pressure and trouble.
I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast.
16 You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you.
For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!”

SELAH

Veronika West, 30th June 2018

RB’s Note:
  • A couple of very recent words brought by Veronika have proved accurate, but after having scheduled this on Thursday for auto-publication I had reservations about that upon waking Friday morning.
  • I’m generally wary of ‘doom and gloom’ prophecies, (ie. threats of judgement and destruction) unless coming as a warning with promise of blessing (eg that brought in Nov 2015 by David Noakes, which is being fulfilled). So yesterday morning I offered my doubts to the Lord, asking if it’s ok to republish. I immediately sensed, “Do it!”
  • Part of a dream I had this morning involved our going into a side-hall at a church service and where front rows were packed solid with youngsters awaiting the fire of God to fall! Let it be so Lord – maranatha!

Scriptural ‘medication’ on political plots against Brexit confirmed

“By the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established”.  (Deuteronomy 19:15)

Late last Wednesday I blogged about how a trail of scripture had led me to discover how Rt Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg’s allusion to the leading rebel politician’s ‘supping with satan’ (in EU’s London office) is not only directly relevant to Parliament’s voting upon the European Union Withdrawal Bill, but also indirectly to a prophetic word from the Lord in Nov 2015 urging the UK for its own safety to come out of the EU!

Moreover, the full context of that extraordinary word closely resembles the scripture I was led to at Rev 18:4 under the sub-heading ‘The Fall of Babylon the Great’.

If you happened to read that post and its follow-on overview that also covered an editor’s referring to events as “an often baffling episode in the Brexit story”, I sincerely thank you for making the day’s statistics “best ever” in this blog’s 7 years as recent daily average quadrupled.

This was quickly followed by another ‘witness’ to the ‘intermediary’ of verses in that trail and thus may be regarded as confirmatory validation for the whole being appropriate to events!

A SECOND WITNESS

That post prompted ‘Helen H’ to email me about an insightful dream her husband had the previous week relating to Scotland. In March I referred to Helen’s being led to focus upon King Alfred (see GPS #12), and again she’s kindly permitted me to quote her.

As the main aspect of David’s dream isn’t of direct relevance to our topic, I refer to the pertinent part only:

‘Dear Richard, ‘I felt i must share this with you as it is so similar to your post ive (sic) just been reading about jacob rees mogg and being separate re Brexit.
‘My husband, David, had a powerful dream on 15th june…[in which he tells]…”The great power stopped and said “who did that?” and was very angry.
“I knew that i had done something significant and that things would never be the same again for the world.” Then he woke up.
“He knew the dream was about Brexit. We prayed about it in the morning and he went off on his own to pray some more. He then received the scripture 2 corinthians 6:14-18 [RB: see below]
‘David is a very humble man certainly not full of his own importance.
‘I am still pondering the ‘come out from them and be separate’. So found it interesting that your scripture search had taken you there too…

‘Thanks for all your ‘joining up of dots!’

No, thank you so much David and Helen – and the Lord…!

JOINING THE DOTS

As I excitedly mentioned a couple of posts back (here),

“What is especially satisfying…is the past fortnight of having witnessed divinely directed dovetailing of prophetical gifting with Bible prophecy…”

For ease of reference and clarity and the information of visitors and newer readers, this is the oral material (non-descriptive) regarded as being direct from Holy Spirit plus the written Word of God.

David Noakes, 17 November 2015 (here)

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

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

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

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

“DAUGHTER WATCH, FOR THERE IS A SPIRITUAL TROOPING OF THE COLOURS TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION IN THIS HOUR, AS MY REMNANT WARRIORS ARE GATHERING TOGETHER IN PERFECT UNITY AND ALIGNMENT, WATCH! FOR A DIVINE CONVERGENCE IS TAKING PLACE ON THE BATTLE-FIELD OF THIS NATION”!

“Daughter Look and See for the Spirit of Herod seeks to destroy and annihilate the Vision and Destiny of this Nation, WATCH AND PRAY! for this cunning, crafty and treacherous Spirit is now operating over the Government and the Church in this Nation…

“Now is the Time for the True Worshipers to Arise in the Nation, (THE TRIBE OF JUDAH), Worshipers who will walk in Spirit and in Truth who will Stand against and combat the powers of the Spirit of Herod over the Government and in the Church, the remnant Warriors must ARISE FROM THEIR DEEP SLUMBER AND TAKE THEIR PLACE ON THE BATTLEFIELD IN THIS NATION…

“A DIVINE CONVERGENCE IS NOW TAKING PLACE IN THIS NATION TO COMBAT THE POWERS OF THE SPIRIT OF HEROD THAT IS OVER THE GOVERNMENT AND THE CHURCH…

“GOD IS REBUILDING THIS NATION; GOD IS RESTORING, REVIVING AND REFORMING…

“The fox is moving in the Houses of Parliament”, then He likened to me the Houses of Parliament as a HEN HOUSE, and He said “Just as a fox comes to the hen-house under the cover of darkness to scatter, to steal, to kill and to destroy, so the fox has come to the Houses of Parliament in this Nation”…

“Daughter just as the fox was seen on parade square in the light of day, out in the open for everyone to see, Watch! As My Spirit of Truth and Righteousness moves to uncover, expose and bring to light the works of wickedness and witchcraft in the land, and Watch! For those who have dishonoured Me and who have turned away and rebelled against My plans and purposes in the Nation, I will cause them to be stripped naked and paraded out in the open before all men, FOR NO LONGER WILL MY JUSTICE AND VINDICATION TARRY IN THIS NATION”!

Jacob Rees-Mogg: “He (Dominic Grieve) is someone I trust and when he says he is not trying to frustrate Brexit I believe him, but the people he is associating with are clear they do want to stop Brexit. If you sup with the devil you should use a long spoon and he is using an egg spoon.” (Fulfilled Prophecy #30)

Checking that in my New Life Study Bible (NKJV) and following its central columns’ cross-references brought:

  • 1 Cor 10 [Flee from Idolatry] 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He? : x-refc leads to:
  • 2 Cor 6 [Be Holy] 14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” x-refc leads to:
  • Rev 18 [The Fall of Babylon the Great] And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities….” 

Selah!

The mystery of the seven stars

Thank you Jo for this heavenly scriptural meditation. May all who read be deeply blessed…

The Kingdom

It’s winter here in New Zealand and Matariki, the Maori New Year.  Matariki is marked by the appearance of the Pleiades Star Cluster.  In the night sky, the Pleiades can be spotted with the naked eye as a dim cluster of stars above Orion’s left shoulder.

Matariki-southernFor the Maori, Matariki literally means “eyes of God” (Mata Ariki) or “little eyes” (Matariki.)  They’re not far wrong, for the prophet Zechariah, writing about his vision of a lampstand with seven lamps, tells of the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth.

“Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?” Zechariah 4:10

Job 38:31-32 declares that only the Lord can ‘bind the chains of the beautfiul Pleiades’ and bring them forth in their season.

Scriptural meditation on Parliamentary plotting

“The Prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream.

“And he who has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully.

“What is the chaff to the wheat, ?” says the Lord.

“Is not My Word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:28-29)

You have exalted above all things Your Name and Your Word. (Psalm 138:2 NRSV – Revd Wes Sutton @ Acorn)

Dear reader, My personal preference, as announced some years ago, is to be apolitical in the national political debate because the Kingdom of God has overarching priority. My purpose, therefore, whenever covering politics is to inform you of a possible Kingdom perspective upon issues which affect our nation.

There may be at least one British parliamentarian who’s either spiritually discerning, or else acutely astute in his perception of the non-physical nature of the forces behind the anti-democratic attempts to prevent Britain leaving the EU. It is the ‘Right Honourable’ Member of Parliament Jacob Rees-Mogg – and it may apply to the highly respected Labour Frank Field too. He demands the abolition of the House of Lords (or “cave dwellers” as JRM describes them) if they betray voters over Brexit!

Later, we’ll consider how his remarks and criticisms relating to events fit in with, and even open up, the Word of God…First a quick recap:

THE ‘FOX’ PROPHETIC WORD

You may recall what Veronika West says the Lord revealed to her during the Trooping the Colour ceremony when all present and those watching around the world saw a fox brazenly run onto Horse Guards’ Parade and prance around before leaving. Veronika received an instruction on the deeply symbolic meaning of that minor incident. It relates to treachery behind the scenes that will be publicly exposed. In fact, it poses a great threat to our nation in these times:
“Daughter look and see for the Spirit of Herod seeks to destroy and annihilate the Vision and Destiny of this Nation, WATCH AND PRAY! for this cunning, crafty and treacherous Spirit is now operating over the Government and the Church in this Nation”! (Read in full here.)

Within days, the prophetic action and its meaning was repeated and became apparent to the nation soon after the Daily Mail’s scoop exposing the leader of the pro-Remain Tory rebels visiting the European Commission’s London offices and meeting several anti-Brexit plotters there. Later, after having published that item I skimmed TV channels as I was about switch off and retire for the evening. In doing so I caught the late-night discussion programme Question Time, which I never take time to follow, and heard an exceptionally interesting rebuke from author/journalist Isabel Oakeshott to the person whom one may easily assume could take that role of ‘fox’; Dominic Grieve MP.

And so I resolved to catch up with QT on iPlayer as soon as possible. I took delight in hearing Isabel politely saying after he’d droned on for four minutes, “The problem is, Dominic, people don’t trust you!” Follow her justifiable reasons and accurate criticisms from the video’s 5:00 mark by clicking on this image:

THE SCRIPTURAL SLANT

The first clue to the direct application of the Word of God as a ‘hammer’ lies in leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg’s reaction to his fellow MP’s action in meeting the anti-democrats (Fulfilled Prophecy #30):

If you sup with the devil you should use a long spoon, and he is using an egg spoon.”

We’ll soon see where this may take us.

Question Time was Thursday evening and the next morning saw Charles Moore’s op-ed in the Daily Telegraph. In closing his incisive analysis Remain zealots forget democracy in Britain is all about meaningful votes, Charles warns (emphasis mine):

“I am not sorry, though, that the phrase “meaningful vote” now bulks so large. It is at the heart of the whole, long argument about our membership of the EU. Over centuries, Britain achieved a parliamentary system based on the idea that people’s votes, and the votes of the people they voted for, were meaningful. Then it gave half of this away to Europe. By voting Leave, we insisted that our votes must recover their meaning. If that vote is now rendered meaningless, we shall lose faith in voting itself. Then there will be Hell to pay”.

Then on Monday came the big government defeat by the House of Lords for Parliament to get a “meaningful vote” in having a say in Brexit negotiations – thus tying PM Theresa May’s hands in negotiating with Brussels. Jacob Rees’-Mogg reacted that ‘meaningful vote’ was being used to “obstruct Brexit” and “thwart the Referendum result”!

STOP PRESS>> BBC News Live: ‘Theresa May wins ‘meaningful vote’ battle., which means Grieve’s group surrendered and their rebellion is over! He threw in the towel on hearing fresh assurances on Parliament’s sovereignty and rights being put in the hands of a man with highly questionable reputation, the Speaker of the House of Commons!!

So the Commons voted to ignore the peers and bishops larger majority against the EU Withdrawal Bill. Liam Fox, International trade secretary, told BBC the option of a no-deal Brexit had been left firmly on the table: “There is no change to the fundamental issue here which is the government cannot be forced by Parliament to negotiate something which it does not want to do.”

THE WORD OF GOD LEADS

Mulling over Jacob’s reference to supping with satan I checked the scriptures and my Bible’s cross-references led to a highly apposite conclusion in The Apocalypse, which opens: ‘The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants – things which must shortly take place’...!!

Here’s that scripture trail (courtesy BibleGateway.com) with its most apposite subheads and I leave you to weigh and contemplate with the Lord:

  • 1 Cor 10 [Flee from Idolatry] 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He? : x-refc leads to:
  • 2 Cor 6 [Be Holy] 14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”: x-refc to:
  • Rev 18 [The Fall of Babylon the Great4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities….” 

Thus, the Jacob Rees-Hogg’s scriptural allusion leads directly to that of the climax of the whole Bible, the downfall of the scarlet woman of ‘Babylon’ and the demonic beast, over which heaven is full of exultation. Then Christ and His army defeat and capture the beast and false prophet and bind satan for 1,000 years during the rule of Jesus with His saints.

Note also, those verses of Rev 18 are powerfully echoed in the warning David Noakes brought from the Lord urging Britain to come out of the EU – for updates see  Fulfilled Prophecy #13.

BABYLON IN EUROPE

Over the past few decades many evangelical and dispensational theologians taught that modern Europe in the form of the Treaty of Rome and European Union are one and the same as the prophesied ‘revived Roman Empire’ and ‘Babylon’. To the early Christians, Rome was Babylon. In the NT Babylon is symbolic of sinful humanity and our capacity of self-delusion, sinful pride, ambition and demonised depravity – thus, a world culture in rebellion against God. The dispensational interpretation of prophecy says Babylon in Revelation 18 represents the satanic world system in its godless industrial, economical commercialization in contrast to Rev 17 where apostate religious forces are represented.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the European Parliament was designed with the Tower of Babel in mind – as many critics of the EU have noted and as stated in the early posts on this blog covering the issue of getting out of the Union.

Wanda Alger: Wisdom can usher in a spiritual outpouring

This is so timely for both USA and the UK, and is directly relevant to two scriptures and their current context over the last two days. First, a reader drew my attention to what she’d received and been reminded of on Bob Jones about Wisdom and Psalm 23 (http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=8752), then today up popped Hab 2 for my latest post and comments thereto. Therefore, many thanks for bringing this blessing Wanda.

wandaalger.me

We have been praying that God’s Spirit would be poured out on all flesh and that all would see the glory of God. Many believe there is yet a final outpouring of His Spirit that will usher in the greatest harvest ever seen. We have repented, fasted, prayed, and appealed to heaven, longing to see the fullness of this promise. Even as these practices are right and good, in Proverbs 1 there is a hidden truth that may be another key in ushering in this long-awaited revival.

Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: “How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will…

Habakkuk-style declaration on the EU

Habakkuk 2:1-3 – I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch and see what He will say to me and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the LORD answered me and said:

“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, it will not lie.

“Though it tarries wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

On watch...

Am very sure Holy Spirit led me whilst typing the previous post to make the connection between the original tower of Babel and the modern one built by the European Union and what the Lord is similarly going to do. Moreover, a few ‘circumstances’ had created a unscheduled opportunity – ie, ‘God-incident’ – for me to blog briefly on that news!

First, after having been out all morning I planned to put finishing touches to my notes for the evening’s house group, but upon my return I was told it’s postponed! And so I could blog. Secondly, Monday had seen my unscheduled attending the first day of a fully booked up conference as a result of my taking the place of a friend’s friend who was unable to attend. It closed with the speaker inviting everyone to wait on the Lord to hear how He sees each of us. Instantly, I heard an OT’s prophet’s name. Thirdly, my intention of publishing that post was simply to point readers to a news item:

However, it needed a link to the digital version of the material, which had a different title and related picture:

After publishing that news and my very brief Biblical meditation I had a distinct sense its publication acts according to the prophetic principle enunciated by the Old Testament prophet Habakkuk, as above.

“Therefore, like the electro-mechanical power failure of the Brussels-Strasbourg train carrying Members of the European Parliament on the EU’s business, let me DECLARE all ungodly parts of the EU’s functions SEIZE UP and FREEZE UP!”

You may recall Veronika West’s powerful vision of the EU as a glacier. In response a reader informed me that a description of an iceberg had been given in a much older prophetic word. This will be re-published very soon…

AND by way of confirmation of that train’s failure being of the Lord’s hand, this morning I received a prophetic word alluding to a railway system! It appears in this ‘Lion Bite’ from Glasgow Prophetic Centre:

THE FLICK OF A SWITCH

‘Many of you are like a train sitting in a station, preparing to drive away and embark on a new journey. The signalman is flicking the switch to change the points on the railway track and he sets the signal to ‘Go!’.

‘Today God, the Divine Signalman, is setting the points on the track of your life to guide you where He wants to direct you. With the flick of a switch, He’s setting the signal to ‘Go!’.

You may be saying ‘I am willing to go now, but what if I deviate from the track which the Lord has set for me?’ God has flicked the switch, He has determined your course and encourages you out of Isaiah 30:21, ‘Your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, this is the way walk in it, whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.’

So to return to the previous post’s opening question, ‘Is this another sign from heaven?’ The answer is”YES”!

The Signpost Perspective: The US Embassy in Jerusalem

Amen. Apart from it having been Israel’s 70th anniversary, I agree Mark’s reasons for this recognition of Jerusalem and his sound conclusion.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The United States moved its embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.

Having some time to reflect on this event, and connect the dots to other events both past and future-prophesied, I believe this is an important milestone—not for the end times in general—but for Israel during these times.

I believe we can now divide the modern, end-time history of the nation of Israel into three phases.

Israel, Phase 1

The first phase saw the establishment of the Jewish people forming a community. After many centuries, the Jewish people returned to the land of Israel; not the land of Palestine, but the land of Israel. Jews began to arrive in the late 1800’s, bought desert parcels and swampland from their Arab neighbors, and created a thriving Jewish community. By 1948, there were a little over half a million Jews living and working in the coastal plain, the Negev…

Synopsis of posts on unsealing the Book of Daniel

To continue our theme on Daniel:

In view of the multi-level aspect of prophetic scripture recognised by biblical scholars of both Classical and Dispensational persuasions – and thus hinting at the cyclical fulfilling of prophecy – together with the ‘Act of God’ Iranian earthquake on Israel’s 70th Anniversary, we now start considering the prophetic instruction Daniel received from a heavenly messenger – and praying that we be blessed in its becoming ‘unsealed’.

I’m not alone in having my attention drawn to this book because one of the scholars whom I’ve re-blogged on Richard’s Watch is now publishing fresh insights. As in the previous post, it’s only one of many references to Daniel which have popped up since Resurrection Sunday!

Therefore and on the understanding that most readers are familiar to some extent with the Book of Daniel, it would be helpful to take stock of what I’ve already blogged on the ‘unsealing’ of the vision recorded in its 11th chapter, as may be inferred from.:

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 NKJV)

GPS #16: are you too receiving a shower from Daniel’s book?

Dear reader – please let me know if you too have been showered by ‘jigsaw pieces’ of prophetic material within the Book of Daniel, especially regarding End-times. It’s like the Lord’s wanting us to help Him complete an invisible jigsaw by picking out pieces and dropping them into our minds – as though pushing a pile of pieces to our corner of the table.

Or to put it another way: it’s like a heavenly cloud’s been sitting for weeks over the three counties-overlap of East Hampshire – West Sussex – Surrey, to release flurries of flakes and then in fly a few pieces from overseas!  It’s a melting pot of metaphors where ‘God-incidents‘, ‘Invisible Jigsaw‘, ‘Bridge O’er the Pond‘ all indicate God’s ‘Global Prophecy Signals‘ are definitely operational.

For the record, here’s twelve pieces I’ve noticed:

  1. 10 April – learn previous week’s message at service for healing was on Daniel
  2. 17 April – Daniel again features at Acorn (unusually, 3 readings over April)
  3. 19 April – Cycles and Israel’s 70th Anniversary prompts rethink of Daniel’s 70
  4. 23 April – review previous on Daniel for summary on unsealing and new post
  5. 23 April – Nelson Walters blogs on his new book on Daniel: ‘70 Times 7′
  6. 26 April – intending posting on Daniel but publish Genesis & John geometry
  7. 26 April – need to split Daniel draft into two parts (published 6th & 11th May)
  8. 26 April – Veronika West vision of heaven and earth’s time synchronising
  9. 28 April – Receive invitation to Highlights from Daniel teaching weekend
  10. 3 May – Nina tells me of Anne Graham Lotz’s new book: ‘The Daniel Key’
  11. 6 May – Flag up Daniel in Signs from God? (Iranian earthquake on Israel’s 70th)
  12. 10 May – Finish synopsis on unsealing Daniel as next post > more to come!

Let me know in Comments below if you’ve been getting pieces too. Alternatively, you can email me (richardswatch@talktalk.net) or comment on Richard’s Watch Facebook.

‘Highlights from Daniel’ – Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum’s teaching weekend

“It never rains but it pours,” so the saying goes and you may like to note what’s on this weekend in the Farnham-Aldershot area, as announced below:

Dr Arnold Genekowitsch Fruchtenbaum is founder and director of Ariel Ministries, an organization which prioritizes evangelization of Jews in the effort to bring them to the view that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. He lectures and travels widely.

This event is one of several recent ‘God-incidents’ regarding this famous Old Testament book of prophecies. Maybe I’ll see you there?
