Angel armies on assignment for America – Veronika West

Intriguingly ‘God-incidental’ that, after having checked my NKJV study Bible for Jesus’ words about honouring those who confess Him in public early this morning to insert in the previous post upon my return this afternoon, I find Veronika published this word only this afternoon! In my humble opinion, this is ABSOLUTELY NO COINCIDENCE!

AMERICA!! WATCH!…FOR IN THIS ELECTION, I HAVE ASSIGNED ANGEL ARMIES WHO WILL VOTE FOR TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNITY, MERCY AND PEACE”.

RIGHT SO SOME OF YOU ARE GOING TO THINK I’M CRAZY….but I had a strange dream encounter where suddenly, I heard the Spirit say these words…”WATCH!…FOR IN THIS ELECTION, I HAVE ASSIGNED ANGEL ARMIES WHO WILL VOTE FOR TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNITY, MERCY AND PEACE”…and as I heard those words, I immediately began to inquire of the Lord in the dream.. and AGAIN….!
“T•R•U•M•P; TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNITY, MERCY AND PEACE”..!
I heard the Spirit say…, “WATCH, FOR IN THIS ELECTION, I HAVE ASSIGNED ANGEL ARMIES WHO WILL VOTE FOR TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNITY, MERCY AND PEACE”….as the Spirit spoke those words to me for a second time… suddenly the Spirit of Revelation showed me…’A GREAT AND MIGHTY ANGEL ARMY DESCENDING UPON THE NATION…..AND I WATCHED AS THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS, UPON THOUSANDS OF WARRING ANGELS BEGAN TAKING THEIR PLACE IN VOTING LINES AND AT BALLOT BOXES ACROSS THE LAND….and then I heard these words,
“WATCH! FOR MANY WILL BEGIN TO HAVE POWERFUL ANGELIC ENCOUNTERS IN VOTING LINES AND AT THE BALLOT BOXES…FOR THEIR EYES WILL BE OPENED, THEIR MINDS WILL BE CHANGED AND THEIR HEARTS WILL BE TRANSFORMED AS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS RULES AND REIGNS IN THE MIDST OF THEM”…!!
“AMERICA…LISTEN AND PAY ATTENTION…ANGEL ARMIES SENT TO PREPARE A PLACE; FOR I WILL DRIVE THEM OUT”..!

Bible’s Author shows me ex-New Agers’ testimonies

The Father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in Whom we have our redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. [St Paul’s letter to the Colossians 1:13-14, Amplified Bible.]

[Continuing my personal testimony]

As well as checking out Christians’ claims of hearing God direct and getting astounding personal evidence for that, I wanted to know lots more not only about Him, but also and especially to follow-up on the personally revelatory scriptures about false teachers.

In my great wariness of religious folk I’d assumed none would be able to comprehend my story because they’d be ignorant about those things. Doubtless, none would have been through my kind of bad, meditative ‘trips’ – or so I thought! Continue reading

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 – v17 is today’s Keep Praying & Bless decree: ‘I Am the Giver of All Revelation’. 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.]

Awesome as my ‘rescue’ was, the dream-visitation of 31 years ago yesterday did not make me want to rush off to church. Its effect and the 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

The Lord’s ‘Final Call’: It’s Time! – Thomas Harrry

There’s a ‘God-incidence’ to tell of what happened half-an-hour before last Friday’s scheduled publication of Can You Bear What Jesus Is Telling This Generation?, as delivered by Thomas Harry.  Those details, however, must wait because a far more important one was to be issued almost 12 hours later. The Bank Holiday weekend and personal matters delayed my attending to his email sent 19:43 Friday. Thomas writes:

“It is very rarely the Lord gives me two words in quick succession, but I received an even more urgent word in the past week. It is the most serious and heavy word God has ever given me.

“It is regarding the “Final Call” to Destiny for believers. I have never felt the emotion of God so powerfully as I did when He spoke it is the Final Call to Destiny. Indeed I had to hold back tears as I knew believers were about to miss their destiny if they did not respond correctly in this window.

“So I know you just shared the word today, but I had to send this also, as the title and word suggests timing is critical. I believe it is vital for believers and trust you will know when is best to share it.”

Thomas writes in Urgent: The “Final Call” – It’s Time! (published at Z3 News):

‘…When the Lord revealed that He is releasing a “Final Call” to believers it shook me to the core. I felt a sadness, heaviness and seriousness I have never felt accompany any word from the Lord. Therefore, it is with a sober mind and heavy heart that I share this word. “Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plough to start God’s work and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God” – Luke 9:62. If we have ever made a commitment to the call of God – it is time to honour that commitment, without looking in the rear view mirror any longer. The hard to believe reality is that the window of grace to truly choose His will for our lives is closing. This will come as a shock to believers, so it is important to clarify from the start that this is not talking about salvation…’ 

In this extensive message and teaching, the second sub-head reminds me of a recent instance of a comment made on one of my guest-blogs about Christians taking notice of conspiracy theories. However, in my opinion, being aware of issues and sorting out fact from fiction in the Kingdom’s cause of righteous and justice is a clear responsibility of all church leaders and disciples. Jesus told us to “occupy” and use our God-given talents wisely and multiply them, rather than bury them (and our heads) in the sand. 

Here are the topics Thomas covers in his latest (click to read in full), as published the day I was preparing that preceding one for this blog:

NO MORE GAMES – DISCERNING THE TIMES & SEASONS

DOES IT MATTER IF I MISS MY CALLING? – PARABLE OF THE TALENTS

JONAH RUNS FROM GOD’S CALL – NO MORE RESCUE TEAMS

RICH YOUNG RULER – CALL OF GOD WAS TOO BIG A SACRIFICE

NO TIME FOR GOD’S CALL – THEY ALL BEGAN MAKING EXCUSES

CHILDREN OF ISRAEL MISSED THEIR FINAL CALL

KING SAUL – LOST CALL OF GOD & SALVATION

GRACE FOR OUR CALLING – DECLINE OUTSIDE OF GOD’S WILL

ESTHER – RESPONDED TO HER “FINAL CALL”

JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST – REWARDS FOR OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S CALL

MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE – IN THE SECRET PLACE

Can you bear what Jesus is telling us?? – Thomas Harry

Continuing On the Mysteries of the Kingdom per Matthew 13 – and with GPS #47.4 -A Directive: Urgent Word for the Global Church in mind – a fortnight ago as I write, Thomas Harry emails:

“Hi Richard…We truly live in a pivotal moment where it feels like the dam is about to burst! The Lord has begun to release downloads of truth and revelation that this generation is barely ready for.

“The Lord gave me a word to help prepare believers for the level of truth and revelation He is releasing. Just published today so would be great if you can make people aware as I believe it will prevent people walking away from the Lord in this New Era.”

But the item got lost and then found! I acknowledge and indicate my intentions of blogging personal introductory encouragement and Thomas replies, 

“Truly Richard, the scrolls of revelation have begun to be opened and I am speechless at what the Lord is revealing, it is exciting but frightening at same time as I don’t know how most believers will be able to receive it. Thanks again for sharing it as truly believers must prepare themselves for what is coming.”

So here’s his opening section…

URGENT: CAN YOU BEAR WHAT JESUS IS TELLING THIS GENERATION?

John 16:12 “There is so much more I want to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.”

‘Jesus has begun to tell this generation things that most believers simply cannot bear. It is vital to remember Jesus said this to His 12 disciples, who had walked with Him, seen His miracles and the impossible. Yet there were some truths that were so deep and unimaginable that even they could not handle it. They walked by sight, not faith and saw Jesus face to face. They saw Him walk on water, multiply food, raise the dead and yet there were truths He could not reveal to them as they could not handle it.

‘So where does that leave this generation, if even the disciples could not bear some things? Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Jesus is going to reveal it anyway, but only to those who are hungry and have open hearts. This is a biblical principle seen in Matthew 13:11 “Jesus replied, Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of Heaven has been given to you, but not to them.”  If you do not want to be one of “them” then please open your heart and read on. The Lord has released some keys to help us avoid being one of “them.”

‘I urge all believers to patiently read this and cry out to God for an open heart. Many that do not open their hearts are going to walk away from Jesus in the years ahead. Believers need to open their hearts to God’s ways and truth, instead of long-held beliefs, that we will soon find are not in the scripture at all. I will present several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture. This is to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation. Jesus is asking some hard questions to this generation and presenting hard truths that most are not ready for, this word will help people prepare….’

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #2 – 50 years-apart testimonies meet at John’s Gospel!

PREFACE: Again, what I wrote on a Wednesday got confirmed within hours! (Previous)

After drafting this yesterday afternoon, I was ‘God-smacked’ and undone upon hearing a young man of 22 years expressing similar sentiments about the Church as I had at that age and earlier. And upon my reading out my references to scripture, he stunned me by saying the Lord’s been drawing his attention to the verses that strongly affected me!  Having graduated from Bible college, he’s about to plant a new church in London and apply that scripture; whereas over 50 years ago I got led astray through a personal perception. Today’s young apostolic church-planter is the son of the leader whom I’d already mentioned in the opening sentence below!!  Praise You Lord for such God-incidence – awesome!

Entitled ‘The importance of holy mysteries to Christian discipleship and prophecy,’ I didn’t anticipate this draft’s prophetic nature and later realised it’s better published in two parts under a fresh title.

Earlier this year a prophetic leader of new church had a picture for me during a ‘refresh’ coffee morning. Seeing a megaphone turn into a laser, he said it’s time for my blogging to move from ‘broad-brush’ coverage to a narrower, more incisive focus.  Hence, the fewer re-blogs of others’ prophecies unless they’re related to what I already know or can sense (thus confirmations or validations as ‘jigsaw pieces’ and ‘God-incidences’), or else are of especial significance.

Therefore as done recently, my personally-related introductions to re-blogs of others’ prophetic material. The next, by Thomas Harry, is directly relevant to my journey and  necessitates this full introductory blog to prepare our understanding of what Jesus is telling today’s Church.  As in #1, this comes with Thomas’ blessing for my action.

THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM

First and foremost, we need to consider what ‘mystery’ means in the Word of God:

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

The New Spirit-Filled Study Bible provides this definition:

‘Mystery’, Greek ‘musterion’ (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’

Jesus’ meaning of ‘mysteries’ is implicit in Apostle Paul’s writing to the church in Corinth on the western side of the isthmus between mainland Greece and the Peloponnese peninsular:

‘Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God‘ (1Cor 4:1)…‘And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing’ (1Cor 13.2)…’For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.’ (1 Cor 14.2)

References to ‘mystery’ appear nearly two dozen times, again mainly by Paul plus a few in The Apocalypse.  BUT note there are no references to either variant of the word in the Old Testament – so it appears this reference and related teaching were reserved only for new revelations that Jesus brought from our heavenly Father and God.

Moreover, that differential between Testaments emphasises a divine origin of especially reserved knowledge and revelation compared to that claimed for the supposed mystery schools of pagan religions, like those of ancient Egypt.

In my humble opinion, the meaning of ‘holy mystery’ is little understood and appreciated – perhaps even by those well-grounded in scripture – but is slowly improving as a result of the increasing interest in the prophetic.

As Biblical and anointed modern prophecy are dovetailing in these End-times, that state of awareness needs to change up a gear or two. Thus, all earnest followers of Jesus need to dive deeper into His living waters to be immersed in His mysteries.

Yet we do need to be wise and careful, and learning of the error in my own searching for those mysteries before I was blessed to be born-again may be a warning and help.

A PRE-CHRISTIAN JOURNEY

Readers of the two recent postings on the ‘God-incidental’ 21st anniversary of the solar eclipse of 1999 and ‘GPS #50’ on Luke 21 and the ‘Bridge over The Pond’ may recall the reference to my mother’s Catholic Sunday Missal.

When I was a youngster she’d take me to Sunday mass, yet I wasn’t sent to a Catholic school. The Latin liturgy was rather a bore but I began to pay attention to the readings in English and how they related to the Sunday’s picture in the Missal.

[NB: Next 2 paragraphs were read aloud to the young church-planter – Preface refers]

I recall thinking it must have been awesome to have been around Jesus and seen all He said and did. Also, two especially significant verses heard or read in mother’s book got embedded into my brain and, although buried in the unconscious, never got overwritten.

One was of Jesus telling his disciples they’d do greater works than He was doing! The other was by one of His closest followers and who surmised at the close of his Gospel account:If everything He’d done was written down there wouldn’t be enough room in the world to contain the books!’  (John 14:12 and 21:25)

In view of that eye-witness account and modern churches’ failure in the greater works, plus misrepresentation of their founder, I became convinced a lot of what Jesus taught had been lost, or even suppressed, by the early church. The truth must be out there somewhere, and so I decided to investigate and search it out for myself.

Next, having learned about the Western esoteric tradition, I was attracted at 21 years of age to a society that published books on the ‘mystical life’ and ‘secret doctrines’ of Jesus, thus claiming He was one of many perfected ‘masters’! Their claims were based upon Jesus introducing His disciples to the ‘mysteries’ – including reincarnation (Elijah coming as John the Baptist). Supposedly, these secret teachings continued down through the centuries in the practice of Gnosticism, the early Church’s great opponent that attracted false teachers and prophets. Gnostics claimed their initiation into the ‘mysteries’ brought them special revelations and wisdom, thereby setting them above ordinary followers of Jesus, as well as engendering all sorts of heretical theologies.

So, as a young man I got enticed and ensnared in the devil’s domain but only through the grace of Jesus Christ’s personal intervention was I brought into His Kingdom. He put me in a church that gave me a good grounding in scripture and pointing me in the right for receiving deliverance from the evil one. That’s another story, as outlined in Jesus Freed Me!

Having been immersed in that non-Christian, esoteric knowledge, I can attest that the difference between that deceptive discipline and holy revelations from the Lord is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

Born-again Christians have a personal, direct relationship with Jesus and so we can  hear His voice ourselves, and receive and operate in gifts from the Holy Spirit. Even so, all we perceive from Father, Son and Holy Spirit is to be weighed and tested against the plumb-line of the scriptures.

In the next post (scheduled for tomorrow) Revd Thomas Harry, senior leader of Falkirk Full Gospel Church, brings anointed teaching on “several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture…to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation….”

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #1 – maths in scripture!

Having seen another profound paper from pastor Thomas Harry I’m led to precede my introduction to it by reminding ourselves of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. (It is purely for information but I thank those who may wish to read the links.) Thomas kindly responded to my intention with,

“Your style of Intro is perfect and encourages people so I am full of support for it, rather than just a link. I enjoyed the link on mysteries, also was a blessing.”

A MATHEMATICAL GOD-INCIDENCE

Four years ago a series of overviews on the growing rapprochement between science and scripture were featured on this blog. It included a particularly peculiar ‘coincidence’ between my Summer-time reading and a physicist’s blog entitled Pure, Breathtaking Mathematical Beauty, which centred around ‘The Euler Identity’. What’s amazing is I’d already read how that same formula is hidden within the Hebrew and Greek of the first verses of the first chapters of Genesis and of the Gospel by John!

Therefore, I blogged on this news in Astonishing Mathematics; the conjunction between Creation, Gospel and Science? and introduced ‘Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John’ by Jonathan Hill. A continuation was posted after re-blogging Joanne Rolston’s Number 153, Signs & Symbols (whom Jesus personally encouraged to venture into His mathematics!) and more details in A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed.

That post also considered the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain – which is rather trite. When using that term, even eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality, as quoted and discussed in that posting.

That blog continued by quoting Jesus on holy mysteries, as at Matthew 13, which we’ll revisit in ‘God-incidence #2’.

The crumbling of mountains is not devil’s doing (but the Lord’s) – Wanda Alger

Only having time to publish a covering note and link to the video of yesterday morning’s insights from Dr Sharon Stone and Emma Stark – AND affected by inexplicable power cut in our house – I didn’t get around to watching them until much later in the day.

Then in came a notification of the latest from Wanda Alger that not only supports their prophetical wisdom but also tells of a vision that speaks straight into an open vision of Britain being ripped open by the emerging Rock of Christ that startled me in 2004 (and which Dr Stone later confirmed). Now, Wanda brings more details and explanation from the Lord of what He’s doing in today’s great Shaking:

“…I continued to see this crumbling mountain, but then saw the true source of the shaking. The reason things are falling apart is not because the devil is at work. No – it’s because the saints of God are at work! For underneath this crumbling mountain was emerging ANOTHER MOUNTAIN. It was the Mountain of the House of the Lord that was rising up from the underground causing the whole earth to shake and quake!

“The FOUNDATIONS of the earth have been literally shifting as this mountain of the Lord has been moving and gaining momentum with great power, now breaking through the earth’s surface to displace everything in its way….”

Upon her sharing this with a group of prophetic intercessors she reports one told of having been, “awoken out of a sound sleep last week by the audible voice of the Lord calling his name. He said it startled him and the Lord asked him if he was listening. He said he was! Then the Lord said, “Just as I startled you out of a sound sleep, so I am about to STARTLE THE CHURCH FROM THEIR SLUMBER!” The Lord is about to send supernatural shock waves that will shake UNBELIEF that is rampant in the Church…”

I’m so grateful to read a confirmation of what happened whilst I was awake early on 18th July and getting a strong urge from the Lord to blog: “WAKE UP CHURCH!” 

NOW, therefore, read Wanda’s item in full by clicking > THE MOUNTAINS THAT ARE CRUMBLING ARE NOT THE DEVIL’S DOING

Let me reiterate the scripture in Hebrews 12 I was given ‘out-of-the blue’ and startled me at a home group over twenty years ago (emphases mine):

22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,  24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Hear the Heavenly Voice

25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more will I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire!

‘God-incidence’ of 11 and 21st (3×7) anniversary of solar eclipse – “Look up for your redemption draws nigh!”

Not bothering to note today’s date, my intended online priority after the days morning tasks was to respond to a reference to number 11’s meaning by Jonathan Hill in his weekend email. BUT after opening my in-tray, what then dropped in from Ben Kay in Plymouth ‘God-incidentally’ highlights ’11’!! “ACE, absolutely brill Ben”, I immediately respond in my seeking his permission to copy; and so he puts it into perspective

“Glad that this email has hit the mark. It was interesting how it came about as I had no intention to write all these things until late last night when I sensed the Lord reminding me about the eclipse and prompting me to write an encouragement. It took a few hours but managed to get it sent out this morning thankfully. I meant to be writing… but sensed this interruption to my plans last night were from the Lord so decided to go with the flow…!”

Let’s ‘get in the flow’ of what the Lord’s indicating through Ben, as told under this title from Luke 21:28 (NB 7×3:7×4):

“LOOK UP…FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH!”

Good Morning,

Normally I simply send out dates and information about prayer meetings (such as the next PRAY UK meeting on 22nd August!)

However, this is a simple encouragement to keep pressing on when you may be feeling the pressure of life… to keep on looking up when you might be feeling down…and a reminder that we are held in the palm of the One who holds the whole world in His hands.

‘…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3 vs 12-14)

Last night, I remembered that today is a special anniversary for those in Devon and Cornwall who, 21 years ago today, witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the 1999 solar eclipse.

Indeed, you may have seen the special marker that was placed near Plymouth Hoe (by the cannons on Madeira Road) to remind us of this special moment. It is in the shape of a cross on the pavement.

‘X’ marks the spot where at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of August 1999, the sun was turned to darkness and the moon turned a blood red colour above Plymouth and the surrounding region, and there followed 2 minutes of eerie darkness in the middle of the day, before the light of the sun broke through once again.

As I look back on this day with a sense of awe, I’m reminded of who it is that not only created the earth, the moon and the sun but actually brought them into alignment and scheduled this special moment at the beginning of time. For no solar eclipse randomly happens but each one was timetabled from the moment of creation.

‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”‘ (Genesis 1:14 KJV emphasis mine)

By all accounts (eg. Wikipedia’s Solar Eclipse of 11th August, 1999), this was a special eclipse. This was ‘one of the most-viewed solar eclipses in the whole of human history’ and the first that could be viewed from the UK since 1927.

As illustrated therein, the total eclipse started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2000km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall. Interestingly, the eclipse then went from here to have an impact on the rest of Europe as well as parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia…2 billion people in all!

There are many prophetic words that have been spoken about the region over the years indicating that God is about to do something special. Given that an eclipse can also be defined as an ‘over-shadowing’, perhaps God’s Spirit is brooding and getting ready to bring forth ‘fullness of life’ in this region as expressed in John 10:10’s  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.

Furthermore, perhaps the precise time and direction of the eclipse over Plymouth and the region indicates that an end-time revival of great magnitude is coming that will have an impact on multitudes throughout the nations.

But if life is tough right now, perhaps we just need to hang in there. In the natural, there is much pressure on a baby in the birthing canal just before it is born.

‘We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.’ (2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9 TLB)

God is in control, even though we may feel everything is out of control.

‘and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose’. (Romans 8 v 28)

Not all things are good…but in all things, we trust God is working things out for our good and birthing His purposes and plans in our lives.

When we’re in the thick of it, sometimes it is hard to see the bigger picture.

Perhaps this recent prophetic word from Veronika West entitled, ‘It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is Ticking‘, will serve as an encouragement to ‘look up’ at this time and keep ‘watching and praying’…

Here’s an excerpt from this relatively short word:

‘So stay watching and praying in these days, as the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow upon the threshing floor of the Nations. Listen and pay close attention! Tick, tock, tick, tock…the sound of destiny’s clock can be heard in the realm of the Spirit. Do you hear it? Are you ready? Are you aligned and rightly positioned? Are you walking in time with My Spirit?

Beloved…See! For this is a kairos time…an appointed time in the earth…a time of divine Shifting, Sifting, Scattering and Separation has surely begun…for the Nations at a divine tipping point are now being Shifted…the wheat and the tares are now being Sifted…Yes!…and the demons of hell are now being Scattered and the goats and sheep Nations are now being Separated…Watch! As the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow forth upon the Harvest fields of the Nations…Beloved, Get ready!!

This follows on from a recent dream Veronika West had in June 2020 (Hourglass of End-time Harvest).

Veronika explains, “This dream came with such an urgency of the times and the need to begin to cry out for the nations of the earth who are in the valley of decision. I believe this dream speaks to the 11th hour. A kairos time in the earth. An appointed time of the End-time Harvest!”

The details of the dream and Veronika’s interpretation take a little longer to read than the above prophetic word…but it is well worth reading and reflecting upon.

The dream concludes with the following words:

“Watch and Pray! For but a little while longer the Golden Revolving Door of The Ages and of Eternal Destiny stands open before the nations. As the days of My Grace and Mercy are poured out upon the nations, watch! For the time is here, for the 11th Hour Harvesters will herald the birthing of a new great awakening on the earth!”

Veronika’s dream reminds me of an encounter I had with God after attending a prayer meeting at Plymouth Christian Centre back in 2012. I was left with a clear sense that we’re living in the closing age of time before Jesus returns for His bride.

Read more about this ’11th hour’ encounter HERE in Why ’12am CRY’? and listen-read-watch RT Kendall explain more about ‘What is the Midnight Cry?’.

Anyhow, this has now turned out to be a much longer email than originally envisaged, so I’ll finish here with a couple of verses encouraging us to rouse to the reality of the time we are living in…

‘Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armour of light. (Romans 13 vs 11-12 AMPC)

Every blessing,

Ben Kay

RB Footnotes:
  1. I wrote Ben, “Not only does your Luke 21:28 header tie in with scripture relating to the night Jesus visited me (and thus the First Sunday of Advent, celebrating His Return – as illus. below), but also and in depth, today’s date of 11th ties in with the details of an email I want to reply to later after returning home.”
  2. Jonathan Hill, author of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, remarks in his recent email upon the Biblical meanings numbers ‘11’ and ‘12’: ‘The number ‘12’ represents the governmental perfection of Israel in the Millennium (12 tribes of Israel etc.). Number ‘11’ precedes ‘12’ and speaks of ‘anticipation’ of Millennium. As part of the Biblical Watch, ‘11’s appearing in global events/signs before the upcoming Millennium may, therefore, be part of this anticipation and signify events which closely precede the Millennium. The 11th hour warning of Armistice Day 1918 (11th hour of 11th day of 11th month) is one such sign’.’
  3. In referring to ’11’ and ’12’ Jonathan has ‘God-incidentally’ connected into Ben’s message on today’s date of 11th as 21st anniversary of the solar equinox at Plymouth – as well as into his calling at 11th hour on 7.9.2012 (see 12am Cry). (Also, 21 = 7 x 3.)
  4. And just as intriguing: I find yesterday’s total number of views on this website is two twelves, ie 1,212. MOREOVER, ‘two twelve’ was the number of my childhood home where that Visitation in 1989 was located!

CONCLUSION: THE LORD IS GETTING OUR ATTENTION – HAS HE GOT YOURS?

How to Look for Signs of Jesus Christ’s Return

Whilst singing the Noel Richards’ chorus “Come Lord Jesus” in a meeting, my wife was noticeably touched by the Holy Spirit and heard, “It’s sooner than you think!”. I submit, therefore, the importance of revisiting this blog’s strap-line ‘Looking for signs of Jesus’ return‘ and of being sure we really do know ‘how to look’ for Jesus’ Second Coming.

What does God and His Word say about masks?

I’m blessed after having blogged about our adversary’s strategy by its being followed by an attack upon our well-being. Why? When spiritual snakes get rattled it indicates we’re homing in on them!  Those postings included a few responses, one recommends checking for relevant scriptures on ‘maRk’ and ‘MaSk’.  So we’re now going deeper into that with another’s recommended link – thank you Chris G Bennett.

Gilad Rosinger, founder/CEO of Radiant Israel as well as founder/MD of Scrolls of Fire, published his thoughts, and what he believes the Lord gave him, onto his personal Facebook on 30th July.

MOREOVER and ‘COINCIDENTALLY’ whilst inserting these introductory remarks into my draft copy of his special item, I visit his Fb to copy/paste its link and find he’s just started a video message relating directly to the main thrust of my recent posts!!

DOES THE BIBLE SPEAK OF “THE MASK”?

9th AV / JULY 30, 2020

To be quite frank, like many of you, I’ve been extremely disturbed by this topic from the very beginning. I have wondered what is it with these silly masks that The Lord won’t leave me alone about until I fully understand it?

Immediately when these mask mandates came out I had major checks in my spirit about them. But I set it aside as we are eagerly expecting a mighty move of God and an end time revival that will sweep the world.

I chose not to wear them and we have been fasting and praying and watching the Hand of The Lord move in a mighty way. Promises of His Glory and outpouring are being received regularly. 🔥🔥

But what is it about this masked culture that so disturbs me I wondered?

Could it be that these masks are in some way connected to or in some way opposing this coming end time revival or the outpouring of the GLORY of YHVH?

As I was praying into this I received a prophetic word from a trusted friend who hears very clearly from The Lord. The Lord spoke to her in a time of worship that there is a reason why I have been so opposed to the masks and that The Lord would reveal it.



So why am I opposed to healthy people being forced to wear these masks?

Is it because I don’t care about public health? No. I certainly do care very much about people and public health.

Is it because I don’t love my neighbors? Of course not. I love my neighbors and I love people very much.

So is it because I’m rebellious?

After all, there are some pastors and leaders that have been quoting Romans 13 and other scriptures that tell us to obey worldly authorities… many of them have even stated that we will come under judgment if we do not obey the mask mandate. Some have stated that we should even ignore checks in our spirit because scripture is so clear about it.

Hmm… really?

No. That’s not it. I love and respect authority and always want to live in peace as I obey the laws of the land to the best of my ability.

So what is it about these masks that so disturbs me and others to the point that it won’t leave us alone?

Was it the 🚨 alarming 🚨 zombie-like blind acceptance of this “new normal” that raised serious questions?

Perhaps.

Maybe it was the spirit of confusion that surrounded this topic?

Public experts like the head of the CDC, the US surgeon general and Fauci all said in the beginning that people should not wear a mask as they are not effective to stop C-vid. But then later they changed the narrative:

“They work, they don’t work, you should wear them, you shouldn’t wear them, only doctors should wear them, everyone should wear them,”…wait…

NO. EVERYONE MUST WEAR THEM!

“Wear them or else you will get fined and in many cases you can’t buy or sell without a mask.”

Wait What!??

Hold up.

James 1:8 says:

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Does this really sound like the spirit that God commands us to follow? Is this what He meant when he said that we should obey authority?

1 John 4:1-6 says this:

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us.

This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.”

Are the head of the CDC, the Surgeon General, Fauci and other government leaders giving these orders operating under the Spirit of Antichrist?

Perhaps it was this clear spirit of deception that was urging me so strongly that something is VERY WRONG with this masking agenda.

Whatever the case may be I kept praying about it and asking The Lord:

Father, I want to obey your Word and I want to respect authority as you desire… so why is it that I am so disturbed about these masks? Why won’t this topic leave me alone?

Lord, why are so many Spirit-filled believers so opposed to this mask if it is for our “public health” and the greater good?

There has to be something deeper here beyond the civil rights violations for so many to be so disturbed in the spirit. Please show me what is hidden and expose it in the light.

I was alarmed when I started hearing propaganda like:

“Love your neighbor, wear a mask” 😷

This is alarming propaganda. 😳

What they are saying very manipulatively is that if you don’t wear a mask you don’t love your neighbor.

This is a lie. A deceptive and subconscious lie.

It became very clear to me that this unlawful mandate to forcefully oppress the public into wearing a mask through fear tactics, manipulation and peer pressure was rooted in something beyond what the natural man could understand.

For the first time in history most of the developed world has been thrust into a “new normal” that ignores logic and omits personal health choices involving our bodies. Manipulation and control is everywhere and it is these mechanisms that are the dominant forces in witchcraft. Specifically the Jezebel spirit.

We are to have nothing to do with witchcraft.

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:11-15, 17

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

“This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,

“Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

The Lord began to speak to me about this spell-casting and sorcery being a manipulative form of mind-control that is conditioning the people to surrender their God-given rightful authority.

I believe that the governments are grooming the people and preparing them for much more serious and nefarious issues. The Lord impressed me to look up this word:

🚨 GROOMING. 🚨

– When a sexual or other kind of predator sets the stage for abusing another, such as a child or other person (as in the case of sex and theory human trafficking).

– Trust: May give toys and/or other gifts and favors to the intended victim to gain trust.

– Alienation: Settings the stage for the intended victim to become alienated from their primary caregivers/circles or family and community.

– Fear/dependency: Sets up a power dynamic in which the victim feels too afraid to report the abuse, perhaps by involving the victim in activities their friends and family might judge the victim negatively for, such as drug use (or even the abuse itself).

I believe that this divide and conquer agenda of fear and alienation by forced lockdowns and forced masking is a clear grooming process that the world is being forced into in preparation for a much more sinister plot.

But don’t take my word for it.

I encourage everyone to pray about this and to do your own extensive research.



As I began my research initiative in prayer and looking into the BIBLE for answers to this difficult and divisive topic I began to receive clarity from the Lord and clear answers to my questions. I spent weeks fasting and praying for clarity on this topic.

Here is what I found:

1. What I believe that the government is REALLY SAYING when they tell the world population that EVERYONE MUST WEAR A MASK – Or receive a fine / be threatened with jail is this:

“WE HAVE AUTHORITY OVER YOUR BODY”.

What they appear to be saying here is that the era of those past freedoms are over and now people must blindly obey them without question, against logic and regardless of personal convictions. You obey or you will suffer the consequences. Big Brother rules.



So why are Messianic leaders and Christian pastors so eagerly accepting this? Why are they doubling down on their promotion and insistence on the wearing of masks being “good for us”, a “great way to pray and minister” and “show our love” even saying that these masks are mandated to the believer by the Bible.

DOES THE BIBLE SPEAK TO MASK-WEARING?

Yes.

But not in the way you might have previously read or expected. And certainly not through the misuse of the Romans 13 verse and others on obeying authority.

Why?

The believer is taught to obey government and worldly authority ONLY to the degree that authority is given to that governing body, and only to the degree that it doesn’t violate the commands of God or the Word of God. The believer in YHVH and follower of Yeshua MUST always submit FIRST to God. As Peter and the apostles replied when they were ordered BY MEN in authority not to preach in the Name of Yeshua:

“We must obey God rather than any human authority”

As we can also clearly see from Daniel:

It was Darius who was tricked by Daniel’s rivals into signing a decree banning for one month any petition to a god or man except Darius. Daniel ignored the edict. His fear of God far outdistanced his fear of men. As he always did three times a day, Daniel opened his windows toward Jerusalem, where he knew the Spirit of God had dwelled in Solomon’s temple, and he prayed as all of us should.
“He might have compromised his integrity by ceasing to pray to God during the month the decree was in effect—or by praying privately, perhaps in the night, when no one could see him worshiping at his window,” writes Gleason Archer in The Expositor’s Bible Commentary. “To rationalize such compromises to preserve his role in government would have been easy. But Daniel could not compromise. For him the issue was whether he was going to please man or obey God.”

So does the government have authority over our body?

No. They do not. Here’s why:

Our bodies are not our own. They are temples of the Holy Spirit and they belong to GOD. ‭‭

1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”

The government has ZER0 authority over your body.

But they do want you to give up this authority to them by submitting to a process of surrender. You see, you must willingly give them the authority because the authority is yours unless you relinquish it.

This actually reminds me of a Word of The Lord that I received in April. I often hear The Holy Spirit speak to me clearly, but this was different- it was The Word of The Lord and it dropped on me like a weight from Heaven.

This is what I heard Him say:

“IF MY PEOPLE DO NOT EXERCISE THEIR RIGHTFUL AUTHORITY, THEY WILL LOSE BOTH THEIR AUTHORITY AND THEIR FREEDOM”

I shared this several times over the past few months in writing and videos. But it continues to grow stronger in my spirit and more urgent as I hear the Words of a loving FATHER warning His children of the demonic agenda that is unfolding upon the Earth.

Could it be that The Lord is warning us not to give up our rightful authority to a scheme of deception by the enemy to steal authority that does not belong to him?

The remnant of believers are in agreement that all of the signs Yeshua gave in Matthew 24 about His soon return are unfolding in rapid speed and divine convergence. So what do we know about this time period?

For one, it will be marked by GREAT DECEPTION.

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works.

👉👉He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that 👉👉serve the lie, 👈👈 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing.

They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:9-12‬

The mask is a clear SIGN that KEEPS THE LIE ALIVE. It SERVES THE LIE. It keeps the deception active as it visibly reminds EVERYONE ALL THE TIME that there is a terrible pandemic that will kill everyone and that you must be afraid and that the world must be shut down so that we have to enter a new paradigm / “new normal” that consists of blind obedience and submission to demonic and tyrannical orders. ‭

We also know from Matthew 24 that even the elect ( chosen of the Lord, pastors, leaders, high up in the Church ) might become deceived in these end times.

“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:24‬

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT THE WORD ‘MASK’? WHERE IS IT USED AND IN WHAT CONTEXT?

In order to truly understand this topic we must look at the Hebrew. Fortunately, I am fluent in Hebrew so it helped in my research on this topic. I wanted to see what scripture has to say about this, and I found that there are several places in the Bible in the Hebrew that the word MASK is used.

The HEBREW word for Mask is – MASECHA – מסכה

Here is the Biblical definition of MASECHA: A covering, a molten image

The definition of MASECHA in Hebrew:

A mask is an object that covers part or all of the face, sometimes even part of the head, and sometimes even the entire head. The mask serves as a marker for characterization in community events such as religious ceremonies in Western and non-Western cultures (African and Eastern countries). The origin of the word ‘mask’ is probably from the Latin word Masca which means GHOST, and from Western, which means ‘MAN IN DISGUISE’.



So what should you do?

If you are a doctor, dentist or a nurse it’s different. It’s clearly designed for those environments….

For the general public, pray about it and understand what this is all about. Make your own decision, but understand what is happening. Try to find places where you don’t have to wear a mask to shop. Oppose this unlawful order in healthy ways. Don’t conform to the pattern of this world. Understand that this is only the beginning and that it’s not really about a mask. It’s about total control. It’s about your body. It’s about the antichrist New World Order and your compliance or rejection of it.

Don’t take my word for it. Do the research and take it to The Lord.

As I list the verses below from the Bible you will notice a clear pattern that every single reference where the word MASECHA ( MASK ) is used it is mentioned in context with lies and deception, a molten image, an IDOL, or false gods.

The Word MASECHA / מסכה ( MASK ) is found in these verses below:

1. *HABAKKUK 2:18

‎יח מה-הועיל פסל כי פסלו יצרו 👈מסכה👉 ומורה שקר כי בטח יצר יצרו עליו לעשות אלילים אלמים:

“What good is an idol, once its maker has shaped it, a cast metal image and a teacher of lies, that its maker puts his trust in it, and goes on making non-gods, unable to talk?”

‭‭Havakuk (Hab)‬ ‭2:18‬ ‭CJB

2. * ISAIAH 30:1 –

“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin :

* הוי בנים סוררים נאמ־יהוה לעשׂות עצה ולא מני ולנסך 👈מסכה👉 ולא רוחי למען ספות חטאת על־חטאת

3. *EXODUS 34:17 –

Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

‎אלהי 👈 מסכה 👉 לא תעשׂה־לך

I 4. *EXODUS 32:8 –

“They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”

* סרו מהר מנ־הדרך אשׁר צויתם עשׂו להם עגל
👈מסכה 👉 וישׁתחוו־לו ויזבחו־לו ויאמרו אלה אלהיך ישׂראל אשׁר העלוך מארץ מצרים



5. *ISAIAH (Isa)‬ ‭25:7‬ ‭CJB‬

“On this mountain he will destroy the veil ( MASK ) which covers the face of all peoples, the veil enshrouding all the nations.”‬‬

‎ז ובלע בהר הזה פני-הלוט | הלוט על-כל-העמים והמסכה 👉 הנסוכה על-כל-הגוים:👈

‭‭Yesha ‘yahu (Isa)‬ ‭25:7‬ ‭CJB



6. * DEUTERONOMY 9:16 –

“And I looked , and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your God, and had made you a molten calf : ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the LORD had commanded you.

* וארא והנה חטאתם ליהוה אלהיכם עשׂיתם לכם עגל 👈מסכה👉 סרתם מהר מנ־הדרך אשׁר־צוה יהוה אתכם



7. *JUDGES 17:3 –

“And when he had restored the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, his mother said, I had wholly dedicated the silver unto the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image : now therefore I will restore it unto thee.

‎וישׁב את־אלפ־ומאה הכסף לאמו ותאמר אמו הקדשׁ הקדשׁתי את־הכסף ליהוה מידי לבני לעשׂות פסל ומסכה👉 ועתה אשׁיבנו לך👈

There are certainly a lot of things to pray about. More than anything, the purpose of this post is to get people to think, pray, research and question things that might not be what they are pretending to be.

Is the forced masked mandate about your health and the government keeping you healthy?

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 1

This topic is rarely covered because I despise the enemy of our souls and its demonic influences. Hence, my not blogging on this for 5 years 5 months since the mini-series that began with musing upon a devilish plot to avoid the Lake of Fire. Now, another inkling dropped into mind last week and which I submitted to a few friends for weighing. I was surprised, therefore, to receive unexpected confirmation from other sources in UK, USA and New Zealand (reader Alex’s comment), as posted on Saturday.

Therefore, this isn’t for Britain alone, as I’d thought, but is globally relevant too. So let me expand upon the brief outline given in my personal appeal; Wake Up Church! 

NB: In all this please note I’m NOT saying or implying any of the Prime Minister’s or government’s decisions are directed by the demonic; only that they may be to satan’s advantage and thus benefit its ultimate agenda. 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father I ask you to protect each one of my brethren in Jesus Christ reading this by His holy sinless blood; also that access rights the demonic may have are thus rendered null and void. (I’d prepared this for publication a few days ago but awoke with excruciating hip pain on Tuesday that necessitates resting. A prophetical pastor who’s praying for me confirmed my suspicion of it being a demonic attack.)

MASK / MARK OF THE BEAST

Trying to return to sleep after waking early on Saturday 18th July I was suddenly struck by: ‘WE’RE ONLY 1 LETTER AWAY FROM THE MARK OF THE BEAST – WAKE UP CHURCH!’ (maSk…maRk)

That is, we need to realise that compulsory wearing of masks in public is a trial-run, or testing, the progress and outcome of which will inform and lead into the imposition of the infamous Mark of the Beast. It is a softening up and preparing the global population for such an eventuality, as foretold in the Book of Revelation. Therefore, it is increasingly important for Christian leaders to teach about being prepared for the End-Times.

Click to read ScriptureForAll Hebrew Interlinear Bible

[‘He – the Beast from the Sea – causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’ NKJV Rev 13:16-17]

Upon recalling the gist of Revelation chapter 13, it dawned upon me we’re not only ‘one letter’ but also ‘one inch’ away from carrying the full marking, or ‘carved-effect’ (original Greek). The new legal requirement from last Friday imposes a mandatory restriction upon anyone wanting to go shopping and buy anything that focuses not only upon a person’s mask, thereby highlighting their forehead and eyes – its edge being on the bridge of their nose, is an inch below the forehead – but also upon waving a hand in order to buy without handing over cash or cheque, or tapping one’s own private code.

Note two salient points:
  • This Jewish year 5780 is that of Hebrew letter ‘pey’, symbolising the ‘mouth’ and its method of communicating: eg in praise and worship the Lord.
  • the spirit that works in the ‘sons of disobedience’ is also ‘prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2).

Hence, the significance of events focusing upon the effects of everyone’s breathing!!!! AND the poison spewed out in mainstream media headlines and opinions that curses the nation!

Next, it occurred to me this is the 7th instance of this topic cropping up recently through unconnected events.

And they appeared as two lots of triplets!  The first 3 centered on a Friday, as told in End-Times Briefing 13; the second 3 arrived on a Monday (government’s muddle, data from White House author, top Hong Kong lab’s whistle-blower). Moreover, I came under a Jezebelic attack, which the Lord countered by more data. You may recall this blog gives copious examples of ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ arriving like ‘GPS’ (global prophecy signals). The two confirmations mentioned above are the latest example.

Theological Perspectives

I ask that we lay aside any personal, doctrinal preferences when reading Revelation because there’s EIGHT theological interpretations of this profound book, as summarised in my study Bible. Let’s not, therefore, be too dogmatic in assessing my remarks. In my humble opinion, the Lord may permit the imprecision in order to ‘play His cards close to His chest’, keeping the adversary in the dark.  Therefore, if we adhere to a dogmatic ‘timetable’ then satan’s strategy could blindside us by imposing the Mark by nefarious means and catch us in its snare unawares.

Our adversary would want to prevent any possibility of a global Revival and harvesting of souls by getting peoples’ unwitting allegiance to its schemes and thus consequential damnation!  Heaven’s reaping would rob hell of its harvest of humans!!

With reference to my recent Briefings, Jane H asks: “Regarding the mark of the beast surely this will not proceed revival will it?  How can we spread the gospel to anyone having the mark?”

Clearly, Jane has Rev 14:9-11 in mind and which clearly implies those with this Mark are owned by satan, and thus share in its decreed doom. These dread scriptures foretell no possibility of changing allegiance away from satan in this event. However, it may be possible for those who didn’t take the Mark to be saved during an individual’s ‘revival’.

Some may argue the Mark of the Beast won’t apply to the Church because we will have been raptured into heaven (‘snatched up’ – 1 Thess 4:17) before its introduction: ie. the Mark is imposed during the 7-year Great Tribulation. I find, however, scripture does not unequivocally support that view – for example:

  • Rev 12:17 – And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
  • Rev 13:7 – It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.
  • Rev 14:12 – Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on’,”
  • Rev 15:2 – And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

Dr David Pawson’s Opinion

In his overview of the epic story of God’s relationship with His people,  world-renowned Bible teacher David Pawson ‘unlocks’ The Apocalypse in 200 pages distilled from a ‘lifetime’s worth of insights’.:

Chapters 6-16…’are relevant to all believers, whatever their contemporary situation…The main motive for preparing to be faithful under pressure is to be able to face Him without shame. Perhaps that explains the reminder inserted between the 6th and 7th bowls of wrath (incidentally, confirming some Christians will still be on earth at the time): “Behold I come like a thief!…” (Rev 16:15…)

An Informed Reaction:

One reviewer’s response:

“The LORD has set you as a voice, to blow the trumpet and get The WORD out. Absolutely; we are seeing the governmental systems and structure of the beast trying to shape out in a more vicious form in the earth. Many political leaders of nations do not know what they stand against; some decisions that they implement are not theirs; if the grounds are lost in the spirit by The Church and the enemy gains a right to impose a sentence; the governments over nations can wield little or no power of resistance. We must realize that when we also pray and gain victories in the spirit; the leadership of nations will have the power to resist the already established victories in heaven. Things are shaping out; the direction of the dance moves that policies reflect shows us what grounds must be contended for to be regained in the spirit. The antichrist is more than a person taking up an office; it’s major stronghold will be the system it sets up; rather than who becomes the figurehead”

Another friend reports encountering email gremlins when replying to me, as in part 2.
