Pro-Choice Speaker Pelosi chooses to perish rather than receive everlasting life – unless she truly repents!

The life or death spiritual battle over the USA has got to the point of declaring holy, scriptural truth and direct implication of everyone’s personal choice upon their own post-mortem status – to perish or to receive the grace of life everlasting through Jesus buying our souls back from satan…

NB: In describing her situation (3rd image below) she predicts her own demise in direct defiance of what the Living Lord God has ordained about each human life:

Will the REAL MOTHER stand up! – Veronika West

As I’m preparing this it so happens I’m in touch with Veronika over a matter of polite opposition to my posts on Donald Trump. I write this indicates we must be ‘on target’ (as blogged before) and that the Lord usually brings reassuring confirmation, quickly. IN FACT, it was almost immediate because by return she adds this most poignant insight:

“Just noticed something,..the picture I posted with the recent Prophetic word of the two women depicted in the Story in 1 Kings 3 was really just a random picture I chose because I liked it,..but while looking at it again the Holy Spirit drew my attention to the robes the women are wearing,..one RED AND one BLUE,..the colours of the Political parties (RB: Red for Republicans, Blue for Democrats) but also the RED robe speaking of LIFE AND BLOOD OF JESUS.

Interesting to note also that the woman wearing the RED is actually wearing a RED SHAWL THAT COVERS HER WHITE DRESS,…(The WHITE speaking to Purity and…RED speaking to the BLOOD THAT COVERS)..!! 

..Ha!!…Not such a random picture after all….But once again we see God is certainly in the smallest of details.”

SO I respond, “We’ve got the Lord’s confirmation!”

AMERICA: WILL THE REAL MOTHER STAND UP!

America: Will the real mother stand up! “Bring the Sword, and cut the baby in half!”

Judgement of Solomon by Nikolai Ge, 1854

So, last night I had a powerful and poignant Dream that I believe speaks prophetically to the hour.

In this Dream, I suddenly heard these Words, ”Bring the Sword, and cut the baby in half!”

As those Words echoed loudly in the Dream, the story of 1 Kings 3:16-28 (below), suddenly unfolded before me, and I watched as two woman and a beautiful baby boy were brought before The Supreme Court of America [SCOTUS] and as I looked at the two women standing in The Courts, I saw in the Dream that one woman stood for Life, and the other woman for Death.

Is Donald Trump’s heart for God’s Kingdom? – part 6: Truth Social, and Bible prophecy?

As a result of being challenged two years ago by some church folk about my knowledge of President Trump’s personal belief and full-spectrum support of Christians, I began a short series summarising what I’d learned, links to which are in the Footnote.

Whilst in office and subsequently, as you’re doubtless well aware, he was continually maligned by mainstream media and banned from Twitter & Facebook. BUT, note the assiduous work of this exemplar of real, investigative journalism (click here):

Therefore, Trump decided to establish his own platform called Truth Social headed by Devin Nunes and is already on Telegram and Apple, with Android to follow soon.

“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech…I have a Ministry of Truth…We have a strong Christian influence there”  – President Donald J. Trump.

In fact, it’s announced today on t.me/TRUTHSocial_TMTG

Now to consider the previous post’s closing items I’d caught over the weekend on this channel:

Posted 9th May:

I don’t know whether or not this item was personally approved by Donald Trump but it is no longer on t.me/TRUTHSocialMediaPlatform, perhaps in view of its sensationalist – even scare-mongering – American-style, sales-hype presentation!

Apocalypse, chapter 13 – “..no-one can buy or sell who does not have the mark” — Dover Beach

Further to my previous postings on Revelation 13 and the maSk/MaRk of the Beast…

“Then I saw another beast that rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and it makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound had been healed. It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of all; and by the signs that it is allowed to perform on behalf of the beast, it deceives the inhabitants of earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived; […continue at…] “so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark” — Dover Beach

Today’s Verse: Ephesians 4:15 on the Truth

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the [e]edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 4 – Neil Mackereth

‘Dear Richard, Many thanks for broadcasting Part 3 and here is Part 4 – probably the most significant and certainly the most challenging to “encapsulate”.  It is 3½ pages  long, the second 3½  pages is a Glossary of End-Times Terminology, which you may wish to separate.  May the Lord continue to guide and encourage you both, Neil’

I’m very grateful to him for his compilation of a very helpful glossary, which is published separately and most fittingly as a celebratory 100th static page of Richard’s Watch, and located in the About Signs hub (all copyright reserved).

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR? – Part 4, Chapters 12-18

In this part we will consider the key issues covered in chapters 12 to 18 of the Book of Revelation. As we approach the climax of the battle between good and evil (Jesus and Satan), there is a change of style and emphasis. John sees new visions which are very different from the seven-part series of letters, seals and trumpets, and his reporting style becomes more like a narrative. Continue reading

A post-Resurrection miracle as a ‘mystery’ now revealed – part 2

[First published 2018]

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)

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.’ [New Spirit-Filled Study Bible]
Prophecy: “2018: I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly My Numbers…” (delivered by Leisa Ebere, read in full here).

The above, ancient meaning of ‘mystery’ is rarely understood and appreciated, even by those solidly grounded in scripture. As told in my testimony, my pre-Christian life got immersed in that esoteric knowledge, and so I’m experienced in this matter and can attest that the difference between that discipline and holy revelations from the Almighty is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

MATHEMATICIANS’ MYSTERIES

Roger Penrose, “The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe”, Knopf (2005)

Therefore, the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain is comparatively trite!

Even the eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality when using this term, as quoted and discussed in RTU’s Three Worlds, Three Mysteries.

According to its author Joseph, Penrose posits the existence of three “realms” existing around us and “which brings three mysteries” that raise interesting questions on how the world should be viewed. These realms are the physical, mental and Platonic mathematical worlds.

Of course, such hypothetical mysteries cannot equal the much deeper ‘mystery’ of revelatory scripture! Yet in positing that mathematical entities don’t belong in space or time and are eternal and unchanging, Penrose is approaching our understanding of the mathematical aspects of the Bible. His recent thoughts upon consciousness originating at a quantum level may approach ideas I’ve broached in the convergence of science and scripture.

A post-Resurrection miracle as a ‘mystery’ now revealed – part 1

[First published 2018]

Not long after Father God brought Jesus the Messiah back from the dead by His Spirit, the One who’s the radiance of His glory went once again in search of His ex-fisherman friends. Of the two sets of brothers who’d been partners in the fishing trade on the Sea of Galilee before deserting their nets to follow a peripatetic teacher, their boss had an exceptionally severe crisis of self-confidence.

GONE FISHING!

So this ‘son of Jonah’, named Simon, decided to return to the simple life of sitting in a boat with buddies and dragging a net in the hope of getting a catch – but it proved to be an exercise in futility!

A few years earlier on that inland sea, the four fishing partners encountered and had been ‘called’ by The One to follow Him. Jesus amazed the crowds there with His teaching and had asked Simon if He could address them from his moored boat. Jesus knew the men had worked hard all night without having caught anything because, when He’d finished speaking, He told Simon to sail into deep water and lower his nets despite the fruitless night – Simon was overwhelmed by the result!  They’d got such a large number of fish that another boat was called for – then both began to sink with their massive weight!!

So Simon changed his tune. Upon hearing Jesus’ instruction he’d objected because of the poor night, yet respectfully referred to Him as “Master” – but in amazement at the fresh catch breaking nets and sinking boats, Simon addressed Him with the superior term of “Lord”; thus suggesting he was beginning to understand the status of this astonishing teacher. In the account by one of those partners, John, they’d previously met Jesus immediately after His baptism in the river Jordan and Andrew had brought his brother Simon to see Jesus, who then spoke of his identity and implicit destiny, “You are Simon son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas,” (which is translated ‘A Stone’, Petros/Peter: John 1:42).

DSCF3120

After that huge catch of unspecified quantity, Jesus called Simon into his destiny: “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men!”  That is, a fisher of men. When they’d landed their boats the four foresook all and followed Him (Luke 5:10-11). Continue reading

HE IS RISEN! – Time and Quantum effects in Jesus’ Resurrection

First published in the early years of this blog and annually thereafter for blessing new readers:

In preparation for the Holy-days’ weekend Nina creates a tableau for contemplating Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. She’s inspired about what items to collect and arrange, usually including a rock with a central hole eroded by the sea and which we found on a beach. It serves as both the ‘skull’ and garden tomb of Golgotha. For example, the above display has a scarf as a ‘river of life’ flowing out of the empty cave/tomb below the cross. (In 2012 it gave an insight that I’ll share below.)

Maundy Thursday is celebrated as the night when Jesus and the lead-disciples ate an early Passover Seder, or meal (see video explanation). Following the meal, one disciple betrayed Him by leading Temple guards to capture Him at night for trial by a ‘kangaroo’ court of Jewish leaders. It was a foregone conclusion that they’d demand authorisation of His death from Pontius Pilate, the Roman Prefect, or governor, of Judea.

If you’re unfamiliar with this true story and how it led to Jesus’ gruesome torture, death and burial followed by his amazing bodily resurrection and appearance to His disciples, read doctor Luke’s investigative account and the personal account of Jesus’ closest disciple John. (Later, a Jewish leader violently opposed to them but who encountered Jesus en-route to Damascus would write He was seen simultaneously by over 500 – read 1 Corinthians 15:6)

HEAVEN & HUMAN HISTORIES’ PIVOTAL TIME

Jesus Christ died so that each of us may be forgiven for our sins. As a result of this new status, we can have direct personal access to Almighty God when we believe in Jesus Christ. As the Son of God, Jesus suffered on our behalf as our ‘scapegoat’. That is, Jesus took the place of death that we deserved because of our sinfulness, for the shedding of a sinless one’s blood was the only way our status could be changed for us to gain personal salvation. Apostle Paul put it thus to the Romans:

8But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. (Romans 5:8-11, NIV, see whole chapter.)

Now, when I was a new Christian I found that rather hard to understand – but it works! The theological term is ‘atonement’, or ‘substitutionary atonement’. In bringing forgive-ness to the guilty, however, this can cause deep problems for those who’ve been the victim of crimes. After all, why should a killer find forgiveness by God? And what about the victim’s families, or the victim of abuse? They find it very hard if well-nigh impossible to forgive.

In 2012 I heard a Portsmouth prison chaplain address this issue with a concept taken from the criminal justice system: restorative justice. This involves an active dialogue between victim and offender, plus reparation. And it has a sound basis in theology. How?

Jesus was a guiltless victim, directly of those who wanted Him killed, and indirectly of everyone’s ‘fallen state’ of sinfulness, which could only be rectified by His death.

And Almighty God, the Father, is a victim too. How? He’s victim of humanity’s rebellion against Him. For example and especially over the way religious leaders murdered His son – how they seethed with rage when Jesus denounced them! (read Luke 20:9-19). So, every victim can find an identity and affinity in both God and Jesus Christ in their situation. Hence, they can receive God’s own ability to forgive because He will help them choose to forgive those who’ve harmed them. [Lack of forgiveness may be the only thing that hampers God – see Matt 6:14-15]

A TABLEAU IN TIME

During contemplation upon the tableau illustrated above, an insight dropped into mind that the Resurrection created a distinct point in the flow of, or perhaps even a change in, Time itself. That is, the now termed ‘common era’ calendar is the medieval Christian one that counts years from the approximate birth of Christ as ‘anno Domini’. But in fact, a more powerful one would be the point at which things in heaven changed and thus affected our lives on earth and its ultimate role in God’s scheme of creation. This took place at the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, His revival to life from death itself.

That such a concept may be valid can be found in the discoveries about the material of ‘The Shroud of Turin’, the shroud in which Jesus was thought to have been carried and covered during His interment. It is of most astounding significance when examined from the view-point of modern physics.

Apart from the supra-natural or spiritual aspect, that unique, singular event could have naturally happened by means of a ‘singularity’ (a theoretical gravitational effect associated with ‘black holes’, eg. as may have been the starting point of the creation of the universe, or ‘Big Bang’).

Don’t take my word for this but consider that of Dame Isabel Piczek (deceased 2016), famous as a monumental artist and award-winning figurative draughtswoman. Her highly detailed analysis of theories about how the image on the shroud was formed is authoritative, as in the first of several detailed articles here.

Also, as a physicist who may have considered implications from a quantum mechanics standpoint, her conclusions about how the image was formed are most intriguing: it seems that the image of Jesus can only have been created by its hovering equidistantly above and below his reclining bent corpse. Furthermore, this necessitated the body’s levitation – perhaps not an impossible feat during the moment of the Resurrection power-blast? After all, the disciples had witnessed Jesus walking on water and were yet to see His levitating into the clouds!

Dame Isabel succinctly summarises:

We have a piece of cloth and it leads us to a mysterious gate which opens for us, and it lets us see a completely different world, an extraordinary world with extraordinary laws.

Consider these claims by reading those articles and watching this 19 minute of extracts from the DVD The Fabric of Time (with its own lead-in trailer). There’s also a discussion of her scientific opinion at In Case You Missed Isabel Piczek’s Wonderful Paper.

‘Coincidentally”, just after having read the last link and revised the preceding references to science (post published 5 years ago), I’m alerted to theoretical physicist Mehki’s new post on ‘black holes’ and ‘event horizons’ (see Looking to the Horizon). The discussion thread has a valuable contribution from ‘physicalrealityblog’ that’s pertinent to the Shroud site’s discussion of Dame Isabel’s analysis and indirectly reconnects it back into quantum physics!
2017: ‘Coincidentally’ amusing that bloggers ‘hidden’ on opposite sides of the world (Britain and New Zealand) were preparing items on the fabrics that Jesus Christ was buried with – the full-body shroud and the head linen – in Joseph of Arimathea’s private tomb. My post updated on Wed 12 April 2017 was scheduled on Thurs 13th for auto-publication Sun 16 April. On Good Friday 14 April Joanne Rolston published news of the ‘Sudarium’ in AB-solute Proof – The Blood That Speaks.

Jesus Christ’s identity hidden in the Bible’s first sentence

Tim Shey comments on the crucifixion post, “The First Word in the Bible says Jesus is God and He Will Die on the Cross” and he provides this excellent 10 minutes video:

The video was included when I posted the original of this item, which was based upon Jonathan Hill’s book Unlocking the Sign Miracles of John. I’ll tell more another day, but to continue:

ALPHA-OMEGA HIDDEN WITHIN GENESIS 1:1 (AS ALEPH-TAV)

In Appendix I (pages 202-203) on the meaning of number 37 and its palindromic partner 73, Jonathan says both form the numerical value for the fundamental Hebrew word ‘wisdom’. He tells how this pair play a role in a multiplication, the result being the precise number of the Hebrew for the creation verse of Genesis 1:1. He goes on to relate this to 666 and a diagrammatic representation, which he interprets as meaning:

‘This transformation represents the dispensational truth that at the second coming of Christ, the dominant spiritual hierarchy of the world changes from 666, the number of the ‘beast’, to 12 – the governmental number of Israel. All this information including this powerful intervention of God is elegantly and visually encoded in the first verse of the Bible.’

This claim continues by divulging this astounding mystery: Continue reading

Jesus’ Crucifixion described within the Holy Name of God

First published on this blog in April 2017:

According to Steve Maltz, author of God’s Signature, the only time the sacred, personal Name of God was spoken by the ancient Israelites was during worship in the Temple in Jerusalem, and especially on the Day of Atonement when the High Priest pronounced it ten times.

The Talmud has many warnings about using the most holy Name – it is also regarded as having special powers of healing. Apparently knowledge of its pronunciation was lost after the fall of the Temple in AD70 prophesied by Jesus Christ.

The knock-on effect of that event, together with the Roman Church’s withdrawal in the third Century of financial support for churches in the Holy Land founded by Jesus’ own ‘kith and kin’ (‘desponyni’), was the great loss of a full understanding of the Church’s Hebraic roots. Hence the confusion and doctrinal disagreements over Jesus’ claim, “I am in the Father and the Father is in me” (John 14:10).

Digging deeper we encounter an astonishing revelation of that double-identity!

From translations of Hebrew, the post-Shakespeare English-speaking world referred to God’s Name as ‘Jehovah’ or ‘LORD’ (letter ‘J’ was then starting to replace ‘i’). However, Jews preferred well-known descriptive titles such as ‘Elohim’ – God, in all the fullness of His attributes; ‘El Shaddai’ – Almighty; ‘El Sabaoth’ – Lord of heavenly hosts; or Adonai’ – Lord, and more often than not the reverent term ‘Ha Shem’ (The Name) sufficed.

Scribes, or sopher, needed to take special care in praying before writing the holy name, which must be done without interruption. Were a mistake made, it must not be corrected but the whole page discarded and the page restarted. Numbering had to be carefully handled too because Hebrew characters represented both letters and numbers. So the logical way of writing 15 is to add a yod (ie 10) to a hey (ie 5) and likewise for 16 (a yod to a vav). But this never happened because, as part of the sacred name, they could accidentally be read as this name. The Holy Name is shown below, but read from right to left:

Ha Shem

“Yod-Hey-Vav-Hay” first appears in Genesis 2:4 statement ‘The Book of Beginnings’ is the account of, “When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens”. Continue reading

Did Jesus imply 2,000 years would elapse until His Return?

Now Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again.” (Matthew 20:17-19, NKJV)

Upon reading the above BibleGateway’s Verse of the Day on the first weekend this month, I was struck immediately by two apparently unrelated verses:

  • Jerusalem being trampled down until the Gentiles’ ‘Day’ is fulfilled (Luke 21:24)
  • with the Lord 1 day is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years as 1 day (2 Peter 3:8).

And right away came an insight connecting all the verses and which may indicate Jesus was not only predicting His trial, death and resurrection, but also implying the time that would elapse until His, as yet unannounced, return in full glory as King of Kings!

That is, on the first day He’d be tried by the Jewish authorities who’d then hand Him over to the ruling Gentile power for execution. Thereafter, the Jews would regard Him as dead and gone but Romans guard His corpse on and from the second day. In other words, the Jewish people relinquished their connection to Jesus as Messiah but Gentiles had supervision of His body – not only in the natural but also the spiritual body! Also, Jews would lose all connection with Jerusalem and their land of Judea after the holy city is destroyed and the people driven into exile across the Roman empire, and remain so for two ‘Days’.

Thus, their holy capital would be ‘trampled upon’ by non-Jewish peoples until the modern state of Israel was born in 1948 and Jerusalem later captured during war with surrounding nations, and brought into Israel in 1967 Anno Domini – ie. in the 2nd millennium since Christ, or ‘Day 2’

Thus, I perceived an intriguing contrast as possibly alluding to the rise of the Church over ‘2 Days’, as indicating 2,000 actual years of church growth and predominance until the dispersed Jews return to their homeland, become a nation and inhabit and rule in Jerusalem.

Moreover, as 2,000 AD marked the start of the third millennium then we are now at the beginning of ‘Day 3’ – ie figuratively at its ‘dawn’.  That was when Mary Magdalene and her friends visited the tomb only to discover Jesus’ corpse was missing – BUT THEN he appeared to her ALIVE and spoke to her! An utterly awesome moment.

So, I was strongly impressed that this numerical equivalence is pointing to the possible repeat of Jesus’ Presence drawing very close to and thus empowering His future Bride in our time, preparing us for His actual return in person, as promised and prophesied.

CONFIRMATION

On Monday 4th April we attended the inaugural meeting of the Hants-Surrey area hub of the New Carmel Prophets, as announced herein and foretold by Veronika West. In his brief introductory speech Revd Yinka Oyekan drew attention to our normal concept of time being very different to God’s and how it functions in the heavenly realms.

Therefore, it was most encouraging to hear this ‘God-incidence’ very soon after having such a peculiar notion drop into my mind about the possibility of Jesus having hinted at the duration of time before His return in all His Holy Glory.

Meanwhile, may you and your dear ones have a thoroughly blessed ‘Good’ Friday, Passover and Resurrection weekend and holiday Monday. I trust the special posts scheduled for publication will be of inspirational interest…

Easter week and the story of two disciples who failed — John Barber

Easter week and the story of two disciples who failed Most years, since I began blogging eight years ago, I have posted an Easter meditation into my blog. I am mindful that some good Christian folk don’t celebrate Easter for good reasons and, while I get Jesus’ life, death and resurrection should be celebrated the whole year round, I have come to value the opportunity to dig deep, at this time, concerning the events of Holy Week. This is my 2022 offering:[…continued at…]

PS to donkey pinata dream vision

Postscript to previous:

[Veronika West writes] Please see also this link to the HKP Word dated June 23, 2020, a powerful word I shared recently,

America: President Trump — a Rahab for This Hour!

The Holy Spirit whispered to me, “I have given the nation of America a Rahab in President Trump in this hour!”

In the early hours of this morning my phone pinged and I saw this picture of American President Donald J Trump come up on my news-feed and immediately I heard The Spirit say, “My Truth, Righteousness, Unity, Mercy and Peace will triumph in this nation!”

As those words echoed in my spirit, I saw an Archangel of The LORD walking beside President Trump and a blazing sword of Fire was lifted over his head and I knew by The Spirit that The Spirit of The LORD was upon him.

The red tie around his neck was immediately highlighted to me and then the story of Rahab came up before me.. where Rahab tied a line of scarlet thread in the window through which the spies had been lowered from.

Immediately The Holy Spirit quickened to me the Hebrew word ‘tikva which means…”cord, hope, expectation, things hoped for, outcome.”

The scarlet cord represents the “Lamb’s Blood.

As I began to pray, The LORD then showed me the walls of Jericho and how The LORD gave Jericho into the hands of His righteous remnant.

And it was through the willingness and obedience of Rahab, that when the walls of Jericho came tumbling down… God’s people were saved…!

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 3 – Neil Mackereth

Further to Part 1 and Part 2 Neil kindly sends the latest with his covering comment: “The mayhem continues apace and many continue to be challenged and surprised as more and more of Satan’s diabolical schemes are revealed. God has told us before-hand, and it is why His Wrath will be so dreadful for those who do not revere Him.”

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR? – Part 3: CHAPTERS 4-11

In this paper we will look at some of the key issues covered in chapters 4 to 11 of Revelation. It is not my intention to make a line-by-line exegesis, and a few chapters need little additional comment. However, before we tour God’s Headquarters and see the battle-plan unfolding, I want to give a little more background information.

John wrote (more accurately, he was instructed to record what he witnessed) the Book of Revelation during the era of apocalypticism.  This rather obscure term speaks more of a mindset than of a specific literary category, though certain works in the period 200 BC to 200 AD do share some common literary traits. Apocalypticism is primarily a way of viewing reality. The Greek word apocalypsis (from which we get the word apocalypse) denotes the action of: uncovering, unveiling, disclosing, or revealing something previously hidden or secret. In short, an apocalypse is a public disclosure of classified information.

Apocalypses often include esoteric (secret) information about the workings of the heavenly realms and how this influences the earthly realm. In biblical literature, this information is usually conveyed to a prophet who, sometimes, is transported to heaven and given a tour. What is witnessed is written down, for the benefit of a larger earthly audience. An angel may explain the visions: Ezekiel, Daniel, and Zechariah include apocalyptic sections involving angelic guides (Ezekiel 40:3–4, 43:6–27; Daniel 7:15–28, 8:15–27, 10:10–21; Zechariah 1:9–2:13, 4:1–6:15).

Are Bible and modern prophecy lining up? 1 – a prophet’s stance

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

THIS POST MUST BE VERY, VERY HOT as it’s been percolating for some days; and now it’s time to pour I’ve been hindered in beginning my blogging day…
(It was origiannly entitled ‘On getting and delivering a warning prophecy from The Living Lord God Almighty…’)

In my footnote to Veronika West’s Important Prophecy on Russia, Poland and Baltic Nations – The Bone & The Treaty I point out…

Principles of Prophetic Precedence:
  1. The Written Word of God in the Bible
  2. Tested words and visions received by modern prophets
  3. Weighing, praying and insightful assessment with the Lord.

Therefore, although this blog covers contemporary prophecy and pertinent events, as and when I can monitor and report on them, their priority does not supersede that of  the holy scriptures. Yet, we trust that in His wisdom the Lord will draw our attention to how the two may be lining up and I wish to offer a few pointers for weighing. What’s more, we have another example of the spiritual ‘Bridge o’r the Pond’….

First, let’s remind ourselves of our sister Veronika West’s explanatory warning posted 7th March in Ukraine, Russia, WW3 and Media Deception:

Warning: This Word, I believe, will confront many opinions and maybe even our understanding of many things that are currently taking place (it did mine). But I must be obedient to what I believe is from The LORD.

I say, like all the Prophetic Words that are submitted and shared on this page, I humble myself under His mighty Hand and will stand accountable before The LORD if this Word is proven in the days to come, to be wrong and a misrepresentation of what is on The LORD’s heart.’

On Saturday she posted ‘The Bone & The Treaty’ word on Facebook, which drew an enquiry from our mutual friend Chris Moyler asking how this further word fits into the activities of the ‘deep-state criminal cabal ‘ in the Ukraine. Her answer is very helpful. First the foot of that posting:

After I shared that word onto my personal Facebook our sister over the Pond in Nova Scotia, Maxine Davis, replies to a comment querying Veronika’s accuracy by saying:

“I’ve seen how her words mix with the will of God and God is sovereign who changes His heart about things. It reminds me of Jesus’ words that ‘a wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.’ The sign of Jonah, to me, is about receiving prophecy like Jonah did for the purpose of calling for repentance, or else! Once people repent, then God relents, so it looks as if the words of the prophet didn’t come true. I might be wrong on what is meant by the sign of Jonah but I’ve seen that happen many times. People respond to calls for repentance and God changes His mind about what He speaks through prophets.

I’ve learned to combine what I hear through Veronika with what I hear from God for myself. When Trump was elected I knew what I heard from God myself, also confirmed by what she was hearing, including one of the last words about God not sharing His glory with another.”

In part 2 I will consider how what Veronkia has brought ties into Bible prophecy….

Dark Days and The Light Of The World – Chris G Bennett

On Friday Chris G Bennett published this absolutely ACE on his Facebook, which not surprisingly attracted a couple of dozen comments:

DARK DAYS & THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

There are some dark days ahead of us. Once again it seems that Satan really believes he can beat Jesus Christ down. He did the same at Calvary, where to all intents and purposes, he appeared to have defeated to Son of God by having Him killed on the Roman cross. But, three days later, Jesus rose from the dead, collected the keys to death, hell, and the grave from a very surprised Satan, and ascended to sit at the Father’s right hand – exactly as prophesied in scripture for centuries beforehand.

So what does Satan expect this time around?

Much biblical prophecy points to these days – “wars, rumours of wars”, “nations and leaders raising themselves up – way beyond their capabilities”, earthquakes, fires, storms! Everything pointing to mayhem and Satan having a ball at our expense. Yet, as with the original scenario, prophecy points to a very different outcome!

Prophecy, biblical and 21st century, points to a ‘Great Falling Away’! Is this not happening? Have not great swathes of the church followed their own teaching rather than God’s? Is there not a great watering down of Christ’s gospel message – no heaven, no hell, no repentance, no death to self, no humility, etc etc? Has the church not virtually extinguished the ‘Light of the World’. And has its salt not become bland and tasteless? Nearly every prophet worth the name has spoken into this.

But also, nearly every prophet worth the name has also spoken of the final harvest, the great gathering in, otherwise known as end-time revival. Prophecy, both biblical and 21st century, is full of signs, wonders, miracles, and ‘greater things’ that Jesus spoke of, alongside a great harvest of souls yet to come to salvation. Just as it did two thousand years ago, history will record that Satan once again tried and failed to oust the Son of God from His position as the Light of the World.

As I said, there are some very dark days ahead. I believe we will go right to the very edge of war and Satan will even appear to have won. BUT – God will turn things around. Satan will walk right into the Lord’s hands, as God turns everything round. There will be a great revival, there will be great persecution against Christians, there will be a huge upheaval in politics – particularly in America and Europe. The ‘swamp’ will be drained – Trump will be justified and returned to his rightful place – China, Russia, North Korea, and other aggressors will once again back off from their sabre-rattling stance. In fact, I believe Russia and America will become allies – albeit a little wary of each other – and a new respect will be established between them. I also believe the CCP will suddenly dissipate into a much less powerful and aggressive state.

Yes, dark days are coming, but the Light of the World has yet to have His say on everything. And the Rapture? Who knows other than the Father Himself – even Jesus said He doesn’t know. As the Word of God says, so many times, “FEAR NOT” for God is still in control and everything is safe in His hands! Glory to God and Hallelujah \o/

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 2 – Neil Mackereth

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR?  – Part 2: THE LETTERS

In the Introductory article (Part 1 of this series) I made no mention of the 1st chapter of Revelation. So, for completeness and before proceeding further, I attach (at annex A below) a review of the 1st chapter, as a necessary lead-in to the examination of the letters in Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation.

The letters to the 7 churches contain comments that can only be understood by referring to the prophetic chapters that follow them. My assessment will seek to link the most significant observations in each letter to the relevant clarification / expansion in the chapters that follow.

But first, some observations on the structure and common factors. They all start with an address to the angel of the particular church, followed by a different characteristic of Jesus for each. Five churches are complimented; two are not: Sardis and Laodicea. Five churches are reprimanded; two are not: Smyrna and Philadelphia. All are given advice, and all are encouraged to have an ear to “hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (note that we should listen to what is said to all the churches). Each church is told what “He who overcomes” will receive.

What do the letters promise “to him who overcomes”?

The overcomers of the Church of Ephesus are assured that they will eat from “the tree of life”. The clarification: “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.” (Rev 22:14). The overcomers of the martyr Church of Smyrna are promised the crown of life and that they “will not be hurt at all by the second death.”

What is the second death, and who will suffer it? The prophecy explains: “the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (Rev 21:8). “Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.” (Rev 20:14).

The Church of Pergamum overcomers are promised hidden manna and a white stone with a new name written on it. There are no direct references in the subsequent chapters; however, hidden manna may well refer to “the bread of life”; “This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” (John 6:35 & 50-51). The “white stone with a new name …” has been the subject of much speculation. There are references to a new name: “ … you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow” and “… to His servants He will give another name”  (Is 62:2 & Is 65:15) but the full meaning of the white stone reference has yet to be revealed.

To the Church of Thyatira: “to him who overcomes, and does My will to the end, I will give authority over the nations – He will rule them with an iron sceptre; he will dash them to pieces like pottery …. … I will also give him the morning star.” In the subsequent prophetic chapters, the shaking of the nations is portrayed. A woman clothed with the sun, and crowned with twelve stars gives birth to a son who will rule all nations with an iron sceptre (see Rev 12). The morning star is Jesus (Rev 22:16), who will “rises in your hearts” (2 Pe 1:19).

The Church of Sardis, which had a reputation for being alive but was dead, is told to wake up and strengthen what remains. There are no good comments; even so, a few overcomers will be dressed in white and will not have their names erased from the book of life. Later, at Rev 20, we see the book of life opened and at Rev 21, that only those named in the “Lamb’s book of life” will be able to enter the New Jerusalem.

The Church of Philadelphia, receives the encouraging promise that the overcomes will be made pillars in the temple of my God; and “I will write on him the name of my God, .… and I will also write on him my new name.” At the start of Rev 14 we read: “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads” (see also Rev 22:4). Two other encouraging comments are: “I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut” and “I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth”. I have often heard the former used in prophetic words given to individuals, and the latter is sometimes used in support of the pre-tribulation rapture argument.

Lastly, the lukewarm Church of Laodicea, which boasts about its material wealth while not realising that in God’s eyes it is wretched and miserable and needs to repent. Even so, Jesus shows His long-suffering love: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock,” and to those who overcome: “I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.”

In Part 3, we will look at significant aspects in the chapters that follow the letters, some of which we have commented on above.
