Edie Bayer: A ‘double river’ season…(GPS #27.2)

Digital Globe by Cooldesign, courtesy of Freedigitalphotos.net

Further to what Steve Hepden received on the Smith-Wigglesworth ‘Word and Spirit’ of its being like an intertwining and confluence of two mighty rivers, I’m grateful to Roger Jervois for alerting me to the word brought by Edie Bayer in yesterday’s Elijah List.  It’s original date, however, is almost concurrent with Steve’s hearing similarly from the Lord. Hence my registering both words as examples of His GPS (Global Prophecy Signalling) system. (Note Apostle Paul’s teaching: ‘Two or three prophets should speak and others weigh carefully what is said.’  1Cor 14:29 NIV)

Here, Edie brings further insights upon this important joint-revelation (click title for link):

IT IS A DOUBLE RIVER SEASON! OUR WORDS ARE THE RIVER AND OUR LIPS ITS BANKS!

I have been hearing “RIVER” in my spirit a lot lately! In fact, to make sure I didn’t miss it, God had someone recently prophesy over me that I would soon have an Ezekiel 47 moment. Looking up Ezekiel 47, I found out that it is about a river – the one that Ezekiel walked through!

Since I’d been hearing it so many times in my spirit, while driving recently, I decided to ask the Lord, “What is it about the river, Lord?”

He responded immediately, saying, “The River is a most holy place.”

Sometimes God speaks to me and I don’t get it right away because it’s a riddle! When He said this to me, I actually thought I heard Him wrong. How could A RIVER, which is not just one place, but a multitude of places that could stretch for miles, be A MOST HOLY PLACE? I could not understand it.

“What?” I asked Him.  Again, he gently repeated it to me, “A most holy place.”

Pondering this phrase, it reverberated in my spirit, rolling around inside of me. I knew this phrase was a scripture, or part of one; however, since I had just read Leviticus, I also thought I remembered it had to do with the burnt offering sacrifice. I felt in my spirit that what He was saying is that somehow the river is related to Aaron and the Priests’ portion of the sacrifices. These were designated as “most holy” by God, to be partaken of in a “sacred place”.

“And the bread shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a sacred place, for it is for [Aaron] a most holy portion of the offerings to the Lord made by fire, a perpetual due [to the high priest],” (Leviticus 24:9 AMPC).

Thinking that, as kings and priests, The River must be OUR “sacred place” in this season, “a most holy portion”, I left it at that. Yet, still hungry and desiring more revelation, I asked the Lord again, “Tell me about The River, Lord!” Again, immediately, He responded, but this time visually. As I drove, He took me high above the highway, showing me a vision of rivers from the air… many rivers, tributaries and convergences.  He reminded me that rivers have banks, and that the river flows in between those banks.

When I got home, I started to study out the river of Ezekiel 47 in Hebrew. I found that the word for “banks” (Strong’s 8193) means “LIPS”! Suddenly, I understood! Remember, the Lord had reminded me while I was driving that every river has banks. Since the banks of the river are our lips, then the Lord was saying that our words are the river, and our lips are its banks!

The River is a most holy place, He said, so the banks – our lips – must also be holy, as are the words that flow from them – a holy portion from a sacred place! This makes them, and us, holy, because He is holy!

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, ‘Be ye holy; for I am Holy.’  (1 Peter 1:15-16 KJV).

His words have creative power, so our words must be HIS WORDS. Incredibly, this is something we already know; however, the Lord is emphasizing how super-important it is in this hour.

The River in Ezekiel 47 becomes a DOUBLE RIVER, so the river of our words has a “double river” power in this season! Watch this:

“And wherever the double river shall go, every living creature which swarms shall live. And there shall be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there that [the waters of the sea] may be healed and made fresh; and everything shall live wherever the river goes.” (Ezekiel 47:9).

WOW! Most of us already know that we frame our world with our words – that we speak and create our circumstances!  But in a double river season our words produce results so much greater than our thoughts or intentions.

Our mouths are superbly creative forces in the earth realm, but much, much more so in this season! In this DOUBLE RIVER SEASON, our words have even more creative power! This means that when we speak in agreement with the word of God, which is holy, we will create more of what He says, because everything that we say will LIVE! When we speak in agreement with the word of God in this Double River Season, our words will release more from heaven’s banks – more life! More health! More abundance! More joy! More peace! More of everything.

“A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof,” (Proverbs 18:20-21 KJV).

Going back to while I was driving, I asked Him again one last time, “Tell me about The River, Lord!”  He responded immediately with, “You’re IN IT!”

You see, since God’s voice is the voice of many waters (see Revelation 14:2), He says many things at the same time using the same words. The “Double River” is not just what we are creating according to the word of God. We are creating Revival simply by speaking it into existence! The River flows from the temple into the Dead Sea – into the lifeless water, healing it (see Ezekiel 47:8).  The River comes, bringing life, forcing it to overflow its banks, becoming a double portion! This is the water that brings life to everything in it.

This sounds like REVIVAL to me – and we’re IN IT, says the Lord! “And there shall be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there that [the waters of the sea] may be healed and made fresh; and everything shall live wherever the river goes.”

I cannot over-emphasize the power of what the Lord has released through this word! We MUST pray the word, speak the word, sing the word, prophesy the word and use the word in all that we do in this hour. We have an opportunity unlike any other moment in history to create what it is that God is speaking. We are already IN Revival, in a DOUBLE RIVER SEASON, bringing life to all!

Speak Life! Hallelujah!

Be blessed as you swim in the life-giving waters of this new season in Revival!

An insight on Smith-Wigglesworth’s ‘Word and Spirit’ prophecy – intertwining like the confluence of two mighty rivers (GPS #27.1)

At the beginning of last October we saw the double ‘God-incidence’ of having blogged on the Jean Darnall and Smith Wiggleworth’s visions and then learning about a prayer meeting being held by Call The Nation To Prayer that weekend in connection with both. It’s like the Lord used GPS, or Global Prophecy Signalling, to catch our attention and remind us that although decades old, they are still ‘in play’ and waiting to be fulfilled – ie. ‘now’ words.

Now, yet another double ‘God-incidence’ clearly attests to the Lord stressing the great importance of the Smith-Wigglesworth ‘Word & Spirit’ prophecy, as though four pieces of an invisible jigsaw are being put into place!  Last weekend what Steve Hepden and Chris Bennett had heard from Him was published by private email and public blog (UK Prophetic Words) respectively. Steve kindly permits me to publish what he received in the weeks before Christmas:

It is over three weeks ago when I first heard God speak to me.

I was walking up the road from the shops with a loaf of bread and was more concentrating on my walking and crossing the road. What surprised me was the suddenness and spontaneity of the word as I was certainly not thinking of this.

The essence of my prophecy is ‘the Word and the Spirit’ and I thought of something Smith Wigglesworth spoke in 1947. Having always loved and appreciated Pentecostal and Charismatic church history, this came to mind. He said, as part of his prophecy, ‘When the Word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest movement of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed the world, has ever seen.’

Why now? I believe it’s a reminder to the older generation, a new word to this generation and a call to prepare and position ourselves to enter into it.

Here is what I heard:

“There is a distinctiveness between Word and Spirit, yet they go hand in hand together.
However, in the move of God to come, the distinctiveness will remain but there will such a joining together that the synergy produced will become more powerful than you have ever seen. For the sum of the whole will miraculously be greater than the sum of the two parts. It will be like two mighty rivers coming together in a confluence where something greater, deeper, wider will happen and at the point of joining there will be disturbance. The influence established by this will be far greater than each individual river.

“This joining together will be an intertwining of the one into another and even though joined and thus influencing each other without measure, they will still maintain their distinctiveness. It really is a marriage. The Word and Spirit are different in nature, they are unmistakable, clear-cut and defined. Yet they will serve each other and bring their own distinctiveness together to enhance and release each other further than ever before. The Word will be the source by which the Spirit will move in the drama of signs and wonders and with such a purity of fruit, being the character and the Spirit will express and manifest the Word with power and authority in gifting.

“Some say you are men and women of the Word or others say you are men and women of the Spirit, but this will change dramatically and people will not know what to call you and will even wonder what is happening. There have been forerunners over the years and they are scattered over the Nations, yet it is time for everyone to be challenged and inspired in a way that has not happened before, for the fact of the matter is that everyone can come into this and in an accelerated way. Do not stay where you are, move forward by making a choice to open yourself up to the Spirit of God and to the illuminating Word of God, for the New Year will bring a new day for you.

I have been meditating on this prophecy and It’s amazing how many scriptures you can find where the Spirit and the Word are in union and unity.:
Ps 107:20, ‘He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death.’
Luke 1:34-37, Mary said, ‘how will this be?’ ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.’ ‘For nothing is impossible with God.’ ‘Let it be to me according to your word.
Rom 10:17, ‘So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’
Acts 6:8, ‘and Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.’
John 6:63, ‘The Spirit is the one who gives life! Human strength can do nothing. The words that I have spoken to you are from that life-giving Spirit.’

However, there is an indictment from the lips of Jesus and I want to live as far away from that as possible. Matt 22:29, ‘Jesus replied, you are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.’

A challenge we need to take serious note of.

Bobby Conner: strategies for advancing to next new level

Why should I ever be surprised at what turns up from the Lord?

Here’s yet another reference to Hebrews 6; the one with the ‘Age to Come’ verses. AND it lines up with the current, albeit unplanned, focus upon training for ruling and reigning together with Jesus in The Millennium.

I’m grateful to Rose for drawing this message to my attention. It is special because of its succinct emphasis upon Jesus’ command, “Occupy until I come!”, which is also the thesis ‘foremost Bible teacher’ and Bishop of Liverpool, J.C. Ryle makes in his classic book ‘Are You Ready For The End Of Time?’ (1867). 21st Century prophet Bobby Conner writes:

DISCOVER A NEW WAY FOR A NEW DAY

2019-01-01
No Delay It’s Time to Proceed to the Next New Level – Possess The Land! A Big Word, For Now, Is “Occupy!”

In a profound encounter, the Spirit of God said, “It is time to go to the next new level!” I was instructed to prepare a remnant of Believers to position themselves to advance proceeding to the next new level, to possess the Land, and to possess and occupy! I said, “Lord, I don’t like the word remnant, it seems too selective.” He replied, “Don’t misunderstand; this invitation of advancement is open to all who will obey. Gender or age makes no difference, it is an issue of the heart.” All are called, but few will come!

The Peril of Falling Away

Don’t allow yourself to stagnate and become callous and cold, now is the time to awake from slumber and rouse to reality (see Romans 13:11-14)! Arise and shine and push-on to new heights (see Isaiah 60:1-5). The Spirit of Truth is desiring to release profound awesome revelation for any who will seek to come higher. If you contend and earnestly seek this can be a season that the eyes of your heart are flooded with revelatory light (see Ephesians 1:17-18). We must go dig deeper into the Word of God to discover the ways of God

Therefore, let us get past the elementary stage in the teachings about the Christ, advancing on to maturity and perfection and spiritual completeness, [doing this] without laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of teaching about washings (ritual purifications), the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. [These are all important matters in which you should have been proficient long ago.] And we will do this [that is, proceed to maturity] if God permits. (Hebrews 6:1-3 AMP)

It is time for the Prophetic Seers to go into the Courts of Heaven, behind the veil acquiring the Divine plans and purposes of God. The Spirit of Truth stands ready to release the Divine strategies and blueprints of heaven. This is not a time to be vague and dim, but we must be bright and alert clear and committed to advance the King in His Kingdom.

Divine Dissatisfaction Producing a Holy Hunger!

The Spirit of God is fanning the flame of discontentment within the heart of many. We can’t remain satisfied and content with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth. “Enough is enough!” Ask yourself this question: Am I willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion? This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first.

We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near (see Isaiah 55:6). We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His Kingdom our top priority, He will take care of everything else (see Matthew 6:33).

There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment, many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual.

This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level. Jesus states, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” The Amplified Bible reveals, “those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God)…shall be completely satisfied!” (see Matthew 5:6).

It’s time to remove all lids of limitations off and believe God for big things, assured that He is able to do much more than we could as or even think (see Ephesians 3:20-21). One way not to miss God’s new thing is don’t think it is already here. Yes, we are so thankful and grateful for all that God is doing, yet there is much more. The promise is that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God’s glory (see Numbers 14:21 and Habakkuk 2:14).

The Spirit of God is stirring our souls and awakening our hearts to seek deeper depths and higher heights. This is the time for you to go all out for Christ and the Kingdom of God. Don’t hold back; surrender yourself entirely to the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The statement is so true: deep is calling to deep (see Psalm 42:7).

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.Isaiah 43:19

This is a promise of transformational power being released, giving and unction to function. A roadway in the rugged wilderness and flowing refreshing rivers in the dry, barren desert. Nothing is too hard for our God (see Job 42:2 and Genesis 18:14)!

You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve], which you have not known.

They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, “Behold, I knew them!” — Isaiah 48:6-7 (AMPC)

These new things are called into reality by the prophetic proclamation. They are decreed, and God brings them into reality.

We do not have time to delay, the Spirit of Truth is preparing a remnant to proceed to the next new level; we must advance and make progress(see Ephesians 5:14-15). In this next new level, we will begin to grasp a higher, clearer insight into the majesty of the Master. Prepare to behold the living Lord Jesus in a much clearer way.

It is time to taste the hidden manna reserved for over-comers revealed in Revelation 2:17:
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone, a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”

I pray that 2019 will be filled with the overflowing favor of God upon you and your loved ones. Embrace the promises of God’s new day. Expect to see God’s mighty power!

Another prophetic word on Brexit being like Israel’s leaving Egypt

This stirring, revelation delivered by Veronika West confirms scriptural details of Dave Hood’s journal published in Brexit and The Bible (as ever, weigh with the Lord):

A WORD CONCERNING THE NATION OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND

I heard the Spirit of God say, “WATCH AND PRAY! FOR EVEN AS I CALLED ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL SO I AM CALLING THIS NATION OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND OUT OF THE LAND OF CAPTIVITY LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL”, says God.

“YES BELOVED, WATCH AND PRAY FOR A GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IS NOW TAKING PLACE OVER THIS NATION, EYES HAVE NOT SEEN, EARS HAVE NOT HEARD NEITHER HAS IT ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN WHAT I HAVE PREPARED FOR THIS GREAT NATION, NOW WATCH! AS MY GOVERNMENTAL HAND MOVES UPON THE HEADS AND THE HEARTS OF THOSE IN GOVERNMENT IN THIS NATION, WATCH AND STAY ALERT, PUT A GUARD UPON YOUR HEARTS, YOUR MINDS AND YOUR TONGUES IN THE DAYS AHEAD!

“THINK IT NOT STRANGE AS AN EVEN GREATER SHAKING AND SHIFTING BEGINS TO TAKE PLACE OVER THE LAND AND OVER THE PEOPLE, FOR I HAVE PUT EMNITY BETWEEN THE LEADERS OF THIS NATION AND THE LEADERS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THEY SHALL COME TO HATE AND DESPISE ONE ANOTHER AND THEY SHALL EVEN SEEK TO DESTROY EACH OTHER IN THE DAYS AHEAD, FOR I HAVE HARDENED THEIR HEARTS EVEN AS I HARDENED THE HEART OF PHARAOH, YES! IT IS I, THE GREAT I AM, WHO HAS PUT A SPIRIT OF DISCORD AMONG THEM FOR I AM GATHERING AND SCATTERING, GATHERING AND SCATTERING IN THIS HOUR, I AM SHIFTING AND SHAKING THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, I AM TEARING DOWN AND REBUILDING, YES! IT IS I WHO GOVERNS OVER THE DESTINIES OF NATIONS, IT IS I WHO CHANGES THE TIMES AND SEASONS, FOR I REMOVE ONE AND SET UP ANOTHER, I GIVE WISDOM TO THE WISE AND KNOWLEDGE TO THE DISCERNING, I REVEAL THE DEEP AND HIDDEN MYSTERIES OF MY KINGDOM, I KNOW WHAT LIES IN DARKNESS FOR LIGHT IS IN ME.

“NOW WATCH! AS I DISPLAY SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES IN THIS NATION IN THE DAYS AHEAD, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU, I WILL SHARE MY GLORY WITH NO MAN. BELOVED NOW TAKE COURAGE, LISTEN! FOR A NEW SOUND AND A NEW SONG SHALL RISE UP FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE, YES! THE SOUND OF A GREAT UNLOCKING IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT AND A SONG OF DELIVERANCE AND VICTORY SHALL GO FORTH ACROSS THE LAND, FOR I AM REMOVING THE YOKE OF DEMONIC OPPRESSION FROM THE NECK OF THIS NATION AND I AM BREAKING THE CHAINS THAT HAVE KEPT MY PEOPLE BOUND AND SHACKLED, FOR NO LONGER SHALL MY PEOPLE BE A NATION OF SLAVES AND SERVANTS BUT THEY SHALL BECOME A PEOPLE OF A GREAT NATION OF SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF A GREAT KINGDOM DESTINY”, says the Spirit of God.

1989 > 2009 > 2019 > The Age To Come

Arising from references to The Divine Council and Millennium training in comments on a prophetic word on the UK Government, and how the Church can influence it by virtue of its Kingdom authority, a reader asked me about such training within churches.

It’s an excellent question in view of the implications in that word, and in others brought by Bobby Conner, Neville JohnsonLana Vawser and Veronika West to name a few, on bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth (eg, Lana on prayer lives being filled with holy fire).

Also, I’m aware of some ministries that equip us for service in that event:

  • Christian International Europe (Dr Sharon Stone) in Windsor, Berks
  • Catch The Fire in Birmingham, Bournemouth, Wembley
  • Bethel Church, Redding, CA & White Dove Ministries AL, in USA.
  • Partners in Harvest International.

In replying to that reader I sent a link to Bible and ancient languages scholar Dr Michael Heiser, as well as this excellent video received earlier from Paul Keith Davis, founder and leader of White Dove Ministries, about prophetic models from and operating in “The Age to Come” :

Personally, this is all highly encouraging and brings to mind what was indicated to me about it 7 years ago as ‘The Book Beyond the Bible’, which I blogged about in Supermoon Monday’s Blood Moon and The Age To Come as below:

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

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

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

About 10 years ago I was particularly blessed at a conference in Bath where Paul Keith was teaching. As a listed art-deco cinema, the sanctuary area of Bath City Church has cinema seats sloping down to a broad, deep level floor in front of a raised platform. I recall him teaching from that floor when he got a prophetic word for someone sitting in the rear of the auditorium. Suddenly, he strode up an aisle to deliver it closer to the person. However, whilst passing me in an aisle-seat on his left, he turned to look directly at me and told me: “Await His return!” – Wow, was I undone!

So although Paul Keith was about to deliver a word he must have been diverted by the Holy Spirit to convey a brief command to me – one that must be mightily important for me to know and obey as an essential part of my destiny!  So, I can but trust it’s true!

Also, I’m not the only one having grounds for believing in the distinct possibility of Jesus Christ returning in their lifetime. A friend informed me he knows a lady in her 80’s who’s assured she will live to witness that event. And Nicholas, author of the previous post on moving into the Millennium is of a similar mind.

Why the dates in this post’s header?  1989 is when I encountered Jesus. 2009 is when I began writing about End-times and biblical and contemporary prophecies.

Lastly, let’s remind ourselves that the ‘Age To Come’ has been accessible to disciples since the earliest days of the pristine church, as witnessed by the author of the book to the Hebrews (New King James Version):

The Peril of Not Progressing

6 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this [b]we will do if God permits.

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, [c]if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

2009 End-times revelation on ‘wheat & tares’ reinforced for 2019 (GPS#26.1)

Recently a number of previous insights and prophetic words have been reiterated as though stressing not only their important relevance but also and maybe more stridently because their manifestation is now drawing close. There’s been an increasing number on the parable of the separation of the wheat and poisonous weeds(!) known as darnel, or tares, now being applied to the sifting and cleansing of church denominations.

The latest on this is Neville Johnson’s letter from The Academy of Light in Australia and, in my humble opinion, is essential reading – especially in nearly coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the inward ‘voice’ I heard upon opening my Bible to re-read that parable: “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” (as told in The Endgame Is Now In Play and which started my writing upon prophetical matters).

Thank you Neville for writing as follows (emphases mine)

Dear Richard,

Well here we are again at the beginning of another New Year. However this year is not just another year. There are points in time which stand out more than others. There are seasons within seasons. There are epochs or ages which mark such times as the birth  and death of Jesus, the fall of Jerusalem, the Reformation etc. There are seasons within seasons which are important, like specific years in a decade. However this New Year is more than just another year. First, last year was a Jubilee year in which the reimbursements promised in the Jubilee year start to unfold now; ie. the end of last year into the beginning of this year. The last time there was such a significant timing was the beginning of the Reformation in 16th century. While this was a milestone in the history of the church, denominations began to emerge following the Reformation i.e. Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, and Pentecostals etc. However, in this new and last season persecution will trigger a collapse, causing denominations to begin to dissolve into a people of the Kingdom of God. This will be of God’s doing. There will now be a period of removing the tares from the church. This must happen before the harvest begins.

‘Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
‘But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
‘But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
‘So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, “Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?”
‘He said unto them, “An enemy hath done this”. The servants said unto him, “Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?”
‘But he said, “Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
Matthew 13:24 -30

We are now moving from the church age to the Kingdom age. The ramifications of this are far-reaching. On the 26th December 2018 I had an encounter with the Lord and one of his saints, ie. cloud of witnesses, in which I was given some insight into this new era. This is the last era, ie. period of time before the return of the Lord. This said, we must understand that time is now limited and is running out. Now when major time seasons come to an end we must be aware of the implications.

First, there are aspects of the old that must not come over into the new. When a baby is born the umbilical cord must be cut off. While the umbilical cord was instrumental in nourishing the baby it cannot stay connected to the mother it must be severed.  The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has become one of the latest to advise medical professionals to wait at least 30 to 60 seconds before clamping and cutting.

Throughout a pregnancy, the umbilical cord carries important nutrients and blood from the mother to the baby.  If the cord is not cut off there is a very real chance of infection as the placenta begins to rot.  So it is as we move on into a new era, much of the old must not come over in to the new.

There is much in the old season that will not work in this new season
‘Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
‘Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.’
Isaiah 43:18 -19
After Joseph’s great trial he called his first son Manasseh:
This is interesting because the Name Manasseh means ‘forgetting’ in the Hebrew.
‘And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father’s house.’
Genesis 41:51

After the great trial Joseph went though it was time now for him to forget
‘Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.’
Phil 3:13 -14

Change can be daunting somewhat, particularly when it comes to how we do church. However change must come. One of the greatest pictures of what the end-time church looks like is found in the encounter that Jacob had with the ladder that reached up to heaven. The house of God was supposed to be a gateway to heaven where heaven touches earth.

‘And Jacob awakened out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
‘And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
‘And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
‘And he called the name of that place Bethel:’ (The House of God)
Gen 28:16-19

The description of David’s Tabernacle gives us another insight into these end-time people of the kingdom. It pictures an open heaven a place where heaven and earth meet. Gateways to an open heaven will be opened up across the earth in many places and churches. There will be echoes in nature that reflects this change from the old to the new. Signs of the new season.

Many have been under attack from witchcraft targeted against them and also many churches have been targeted over the last few years by this spirit This Jezebelic spirit has hindered many but in this new season change is coming in regards to this demonic aggression. The rise of true kingdom power and authority will begin to escalate. Kingdom health will start to prevail in many. The season of trials will emerge into great blessings just as winter gives way to springtime. True Josephs will come out of prison. That which has been built on the sand will disappear and that which has been built on the rock, the teachings of Jesus, will stand the coming storms. In this new season Kingdom love will release Kingdom faith, authority, wealth, and revelation. The awaking of the Kingdom within you will bring a tsunami of revelation and understanding. The parables of the Kingdom will also bring revelation, understanding and insights into this Kingdom age.

Many who have run their course will be taken home in this new season. It is graduation time for many who have run their race and have kept the faith. Age may have wearied you but your home-coming is awaited eagerly by those on the other side.

‘I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
‘Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them  also them that love his appearing.’
2 Tim 4:7-8

Change is in the air the set time to favour Zion has come
‘But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
‘Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.’
Psalm 102:12-13
‘When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.’
Psalm 102:16

A new year, a fresh start – a reflective trilogy

Three brief messages may encourage my readers personally, and assist reflection upon your spiritual journey, or your consideration of embarking upon one.:

A long year of increasing difficulties has disappeared and we’re blessed to face a fresh start with their elimination. It was mightily encouraging, therefore, on New Year’s morn’ and our returning to the beginning of daily meditations in Sanctuary by David Strutt, to read his following insight (tap/drag to enlarge):

Next, this by Russ Parker was particularly poignant because I’ve revisited the account of my own journey or pilgrimage – even when I was far away from God – as you will read soon. It opens up the first portion ‘Pilgrim Aspirations’ of Jan-April 2019 issue of Bible Reflections For Older People (publ by Bible Reading Fellowship). Note reference to ‘new journeys’.:

Third, this ‘daily dose’ from David & Emma Stark’s team at Glasgow Prophetic Centre; note, we’re back to one of this blog’s on-going topics, that of Time:

Lionbites: I CREATE THE DAYS

As you enter this new year it may be hard to see that it truly is new and you may even feel trapped in the yester-days and the yester-years. Your calendar feels backwards, with future dates already filled and re-filled with diary entries from the past.Yet the Lord says over you,

“I am the God who creates the days. I am He who exists with Time. I do not give you days without purpose nor do I give you time without fruit. Give Me your minutes and I will add years to you, give Me your seconds and I will multiply them with fruit. You are My child and I will cause you to prosper; you are My gift and I will cause you to bless and to be blessed. I created you by design, lifting you out of obscurity into abundance and now you have the path of plenty for I Am the Light of Life.”

Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Bible Update: “Like Pieces of Meat Before Our Teeth” (Daniel 7:5)

Meanwhile ‘back on the ranch’; ie. where my interest in Bible prophecy kick-started 30 years ago upon seeing Iranian forces rehearsal of storming Jerusalem (details here) – Not forgetting this week’s news of Iranian regime’s persecution of Muslim converts to Christ.:

…..so said one of the kings of the Persian ram. Once again we see the Iranian regime speaking prophecy from Daniel. If the Signpost interpretation is true, the Iranian regime is planning…

‘Hello, I’m Richard Barker.

‘Welcome to my musings about what’s going on in the world and I trust this blog may help you gain some insights. Indeed, what on earth is going to happen next?

‘Some pertinent points from my past appear in my Bio Info, where you’ll learn about a seminal work that was to serve as a fascinating foundation for anyone’s appreciation of Bible prophecy

‘Reading The Invisible Hand in the mid-1980s opened me up to a new dimension to events in the Middle East indicative of things not being as they seem. I was amazed to learn they’re of major Biblical significance! Bemused, therefore, I began to watch…:

God’s numbers in July’s blood moon (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

This third guest post by Jonathan R Hill continues with the fulfillment of the prophetic word for 2018 of the gift of understanding special numbers, as used by the Lord and  reviewed here. This article recaps previous points to introduce very compelling facts pertaining to modern British history: 

BLOOD MOON 27th JULY 2018

The celestial event of this lunar eclipse is warning of a coming divine judgement upon a godless Europe.

A record-registering heatwave across Europe, breaks in the UK on the day of this blood red moon. The UK’s nationwide evening thunderstorms and rain, halt the intense heat. The heatwave across Europe speaks of the heat of divine judgement as confirmed by the red colour of the moon.

The United Kingdom has been marked by the Lord for interventional dealings and, as will be explained, these dealings of the Lord with the UK, are regarding ‘escape’. In scripture, the Lord uses triangular numbers to mark individuals or bodies of people with whom He will interact. The triangular number 153 is a prime example as representing the completed church at the point of rapture or ‘escape’.

Queen Elizabeth II was crowned queen of the United Kingdom and all commonwealth  countries in 1953, a number which is the 62nd triangular number and in which the digits ‘1’, ‘5’ and ‘3’ appear. Significantly, Elizabeth was crowned on the 153rd day of 1953, namely the 2nd June. Moreover, on this day, news comes in that the commonwealth climber Sir Edmund Hilary has conquered Mount Everest, confirming this day as a ‘high’ day in global history. In this way and by His grace, God has marked our nation with 153 or ‘escape’. The true personal faith of our sovereign queen has acted as a testimony of God’s involvement.

From what is the UK escaping? The next triangular number which mathematically follows 1953 is 2016. This is the year of the Brexit Referendum which marks the ‘escape’ of the UK out of the European Union. The earlier ‘escape’ of 33 individual Chilean Miners was the first ‘escape’ witnessed by the world. The second is a national escape out of the EU block of 28 nations with 5 in accession (33 nations), also witnessed by the world. Both escapes signify the global escape of the church at the Rapture. Individual, followed by national concluding with global, appears to be the divine signification of ‘escape’. The number of days between these ‘escape’ events is important because it contains the relevant triangular numbers. In the case of Brexit and the Chilean Miner rescue, there are 33 x 63 separating days, where 33 is the biblical number of ‘living witness’ and the 63rd triangular number is 2016, the year of the Brexit Referendum.

The relevance to this discussion is the number of days between the blood red moon of July 27th, 2018 (BRM) and the Brexit Referendum, which is 5 x 153. The number 5 denotes the grace of God upon the nation of the UK, in permitting an ‘escape’ from the EU and the upcoming judgement. BRM is also 12 x 3066 days from the Balfour Declaration regarding the restoration of the nation of Israel. Perhaps this British declaration somehow factors with the divine grace gifted to the UK. The number 12 represents the governmental perfection of Israel and 3066 is the Hebrew gematria of Isaiah 53:10, which speaks of Messiah seeing His seed (believing Israel) in the Millennial Kingdom.

Many in the UK are unable to observe this celestial warning, because of obstructing cloud cover of the breaking weather. In a sense the UK has escaped the ‘heat of judgement’. In contrast, the blood red moon continues to shine down on mainland Europe.

Brexit (Referendum Vote) – Thursday 23 June 2016 AD Gregorian

INCLUSIVE 765 Days

RB Footnote: Regarding exceptional global temperatures and wildfires, it’s worth noting the prophetic insights within the second letter of the  Apostle Peter, wherein the third chapter begins:

‘Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men.

8 ‘But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

10 ‘But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be [d]burned up11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,  12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.’ (NKJV)

URGENT word of warning to intercessors (Brexit betrayal)

This from Veronika West posted last night is very pertinent in the light of the increasing likelihood of Theresa May’s betrayal of the peoples’ democratic decision to leave the EU. (NB. the latest ‘deal’ has been leaked to Irish papers instead of to British press. Rt Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg writes, “Words have consequences. As Saint Matthew wrote: ‘every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment’…”Brexit has become an issue of trust and the government has lost it!)

AN URGENT WORD OF WARNING TO THE WEARY WARRIORS OF USA AND THE UK; I SEE BROKEN ARROWS IN THE HAND OF A MIGHTY WARRIOR, THE ENEMIES OF GOD ARE BEING SCATTERED..!

Today while in prayer for both Nations, I was taken into a very powerful vision where I saw many WEARY WARRIORS ON THE BATTLE FIELD, many were EXHAUSTED AND HAD BEGUN TO SHRINK BACK AND RETREAT, the Enemy SEEMED TO BE GAINING GROUND, the enemy SEEMED TO BE WINNING, but then SUDDENLY a LOUD ROAR came out of the heavens and the atmosphere of DEATH AND DESTRUCTION on the battlefield began to SUDDENLY SHIFT AND CHANGE. Then I heard these words,

“IT’S TIME TO ARISE, IT’S TIME TO ADVANCE, IT’S TIME TO STRIKE YOUR ARROWS HARD UPON THE GROUND AND WATCH AS YOUR ENEMIES ARE UTTERLY DESTROYED”!

As I heard those words, I felt a tangible SPIRITUAL SHIFT BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE OVER BOTH NATIONS, then I saw the Weary Warriors on the Battlefield begin to ARISE TO THEIR FEET IN GREATER STRENGTH AND POWER AND THEY TOOK THEIR ARROWS AND BEGAN TO BEAT THEM HARD AGAINST THE GROUND, NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE, NOT THREE TIMES, NOT FOUR TIMES BUT FIVE AND SIX TIMES THEY BEAT THEIR ARROWS HARD UPON THE GROUND UNTIL ALL THE ARROWS WERE BROKEN!!!!

Now As I watched this unfold in the vision suddenly the Spirit of God quickened to me (2 KINGS 13:17-19 which says, “Open the east window,” he said, and he opened it. “Shoot!” Elisha said, and he shot. “The LORD’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!” Elisha declared. “You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek.” Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.”

ITS A TIME OF INTENSE WAR; THE WARRIORS OF GOD MUST ARISE ADVANCE AND TAKE GROUND.

LISTEN; IT’S TIME TO SHAKE OFF THE SPIRIT OF WEARINESS AND PASSIVITY THAT COMES TO CAUSE YOU TO SHRINK BACK AND RETREAT, IT’S TIME TO STRIKE OUR ARROWS HARD UPON THE GROUND AND WATCH AS OUR ENEMIES ARE UTTERLY DESTROYED….!

PS. Veronika explains on her Fb:  “OUR PRAYERS ARE THE ARROWS; this word is about PRESSING IN THROUGH PRAYER WITH A GREATER LEVEL OF INTENSITY TAKING OUR STAND PROPHETICALLY RISING UP IN GREATER AUTHORITY AND ANOINTING AS KINGS AND HIGH PRIESTS.”

God’s numbers in the Chilean miners’ rescue (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

We continue with the fulfillment of the revelation of “My Numbers”, especially ’33’, with another guest post from Jonathan R Hill in his updating of an earlier paper. Note it closes by referring to the importance of the date of World War One’s Armistice.

Of personal interest is ’17’ because on my 71st birthday on 22nd Sept I wondered if it may have any meaning and the thought dropped into mind to reverse it – ah, back to being a teenager! Then I dug into Jonathan’s writing and noted it does have significance – and I’d totally forgotten about having inserted ’17 Year Cycles’ from Erik Hadik’s site into Cycles and the Bible. So be mightily blessed as you read about…

THE CHILEAN MINERS’ RESCUE

On the 5th August 2010, a mine collapsed in the Atacama Desert of Chile in South America trapping 33 miners. The extraordinary ordeal of these ordinary men separated from their families, captured the hearts of the world and commanded the attention of the global media. On the 13th October 2010, 69 days later and beginning just after midnight, all 33 miners were lifted-up in quick succession from their rocky tomb 2000 feet [1] below the surface. This victory over death was witnessed by the world.

The symbolism of this escape is of biblical proportion. The rescue of these men truly typifies a dispensational event of the highest order and the world must take note. As this short paper will show, the numbers involved with this escape align with biblical prophecy concerning the physical resurrection of dead. Just as Jesus rose from a rocky tomb aged 33, so all believers in Messiah will be raised future from now. These 33 miners who were constrained to die but rose to life through 2000 feet of rock (symbolic of 2000 years), signify this future event.
