Bible Update: 2Thess 2 cont’d – the new Gay Gnosticism, by Gavin Ashenden

Further to my briefing in the previous post, here Dr Gavin wields a scriptural scalpel with forensic precision to expose unrighteous falsehood behind some discussions at last July’s ‘Sex Sin-od’.:

New heresies spring up in the life of the Church from time to time, although on closer examination they turn out to be old heresies slightly reformatted. Jayne Ozanne is a vocal exponent of a gay rights and her approach is a very simple one, but no less perverse for its simplicity She preached recently […]

John Kilpatrick: 21 powerful prophetic words for 2018

‘This is a Year of Divine Interruptions’ and ‘Final Word’, respectively the opening and closing of twenty-one words delivered Friday 19th January deal with the global scene specifically. We heard these words after I’d finished drafting the previous post on my insights gained a fortnight ago on Zecharia 2.

Revd John Kilpatrick brings what the Lord told him after waking him on 23rd December 2017 and four minutes into this message he refers to the issues over Jerusalem and Israel that I’ve blogged about.

Prophetic ‘castle’ words and pictures now coming into play

Several readers have commented or emailed me on the timeliness of the word from Liz Evans in her Call to pray for our nation and establish God’s rule.

It is undated and thereby avoids attribution of dating or thinking its ‘dated’, or it’s gone stale. After all, the Lord looks over His word to ensure it achieves its purpose and thus doesn’t return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). This word brought by Liz was received several years ago, but we’ll connect the ‘prophetic dots’ or ‘jigsaw pieces’ and examine them as being evidence from the Lord as to that word being timely for 2018.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

Many regulars will be familiar with my use of godly coincidences as a tool in receiving, checking and testing prophetic words and visions. The scriptural warrant for doing so is quite clear but new readers wishing to investigate further are directed to ‘The Protocol of Prophecies’ in An Introduction to Prophecy.

‘BRIDGE o’er POND’ – ALABAMA

At about five past five last Sunday afternoon I found myself nodding in agreement with pastor John Kilpatrick at Church of His Presence saying the Lord has been giving him prophetic words for each new year…but it was the actual date that made me nod:

“It started in 2009 when the Lord first gave me a prophetic word. We waited on the Lord for the New Year and when He left I just got a download…” (listen from 1:03:00 here)

I was pleased to get a confirmation from a pastor that 2009 had been the start of a prophetic process for him too. Yet for me it had been a ‘need’ to write on the prophetic. Moreover, I’d been unconscious to a specific thread that had been sewn throughout the years until recently, when another sudden shower of serendipity surrounded me with ‘jigsaw pieces’ – just like snowflakes lying around my feet!

This time, it gave me grounds to get out my old files from 2009-10.  And this wasn’t the first time buttons had been pressed to open up and relive my visual memory.

The first such ‘re-opening’ had come after debating an issue at Prophecy Today in mid-December. A confirmatory word brought by Brett Dewey had plugged so powerfully into one of mine in 2011 when I’d had a very vivid dream relating to Bill Johnson’s prophecy on that 3rd September being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK. Brett’s dream in December 2017 showed that what ‘our’ dreams cover is now at the next stage of active unveiling – God-incidents Validate Three Prophetic Visions refers.

[Moreover, Brett’s earlier vision of a beach and wall has strong similarities to details in a personal prophecy given to me by Bath’s team in 2005 when we met Liz.]

‘BRIDGE o’er POND’ – ARIZONA

The second ‘re-opening’ of my visual memory came last week from Tony Puccio after I’d joked in his second England Ablaze about his ‘spiritual observatory’ in Tucson, Arizona. On Wednesday 3rd he kindly sent me a file with covering note simply saying,  ‘Thought this might interest you’ – Wot! – a HUGE understatement!

Kitt Peak National Observatory outside Tucson (RB 4.2008)

In view of a couple of dreams he’d had about an inevitable change of monarch, I’d already put him in touch with a group of intercessors, who’d kindly supplied some historical prophecies on the royal family. It included a transcript of Liz Evan’s Word for UK.

I replied to Tony: ‘Re your…attachment that MIGHT interest me Tony!! It MOST certainly does, as explained below – I’m extremely grateful you’ve kept me in the loop on this…as its re-connecting me and taking me ‘full circle’…

‘…we often went to Bath City Church as it’s very special to us since 2002 (we married 6 months later) and it’s where we connected into the prophetic and met Sharon Stone and Liz Evans very soon afterwards.  Liz’s website is endorsed by a close friend of ours.’

I copied Liz into that reply and, after greeting her, wrote, ‘Tony’s attachment of the ‘Call’ you brought and its reference to castles immediately opened up my visual memory to the time several years ago I told you of the angels on battlements I saw close by Bath City Church.  Think I may also have emailed you on what I’d sensed of Windsor Castle being a connection between heaven and earth and then sharing that with Sharon six years ago next month!  (I didn’t know she’d soon move there)

‘Only last weekend did we watch episode 5 of The Crown (on Netflix) and noted its very close attention to detail of the ‘secret ceremony’ of Her Majesty being anointed during her Coronation, and to which your article refers. (My Her Majesty’s 90th birthday also refers.)’

BATTLEMENTS o’er BATH

I find in my personal prophecies papers that I’d emailed Liz on 18 March 2010, after our attending BCC’s Partner’s Day and wanting to discuss that weekend: ‘Yesterday was most encouraging and exciting, especially in what you said about castles and Magna Carta for I believe it may be relevant to some things that popped up over the last year… it develops upon the vision that Sharon weighed at her school [in Bath] a few years ago.’

There wasn’t time at the next weekend school to discuss, so I followed up with the details of what I’d seen in 2009, as may be read in this scanned email:

Liz replied, “Fantastic, definitely worth weighing” but I don’t recall seeing a paper version of what she’d shared. However, someone had transcribed it from her ‘Prophecy in the UK’ session at 2010 Release Conference in Bristol with Bill Johnson (him again!) and Mark Stibbe. A copy of that came from Tony, but Liz kindly sent me her version for publication (see previous post).

INVISIBLE JIGSAW PIECES

After last Thursday’s frenetic to-and-fro of the above messages the following ‘God-incidental’ input soon burst upon the scene:

  1. I realised 7 years have elapsed since this Call was made at Release 2010.
  2. That evening’s meeting with our curate of Bramshott & Liphook Church discussed her pre-Alpha spirituality course. She will be teaching on ‘interior castles’ (per Carmelite St Teresa of Avilla)!!
  3. Thus, I told her of my day’s activity and past connection with ‘castles’ and she reminded me of her Bath connections: especially Paul Skelton’s H.O.T.S. and ministry in India. (Soon after launching this blog I helped Paul by publicising the issues HOTS Bath had with Advertising Standards Agency in 2012)
  4. Our vicar Valentine Inglis-Jones was previously curator at Holy Trinity, Coombe Down Bath, and will be with out there with Paul later this month!

So Sunday’s passing remark by pastor John in Daphne, Alabama, makes yet one more confirmatory ‘God-incidence’. On top of all that is what I’d sensed about Windsor Castle in 2011 and shared with Sharon in February 2012.

HEAVEN TOUCHING EARTH

In that month, at a conference in Torquay, I mentioned to Sharon that Nina and I had visited Windsor the previous year and I’d sensed a spiritual atmosphere there. As we spoke, an image of its Castle’s famous round tower came into mind. This was followed by the idea its crenellated battlements look like the teeth of a giant cogwheel, and this could fit into some sort of invisible socket where earth could get plugged into heaven!

It’s a little hard to explain but then the thought dropped into mind that such engagement would enable the heavenly kingdom to ‘wind up’ our earthly kingdom – or ‘queen-dom’ – for the Lord’s purposes (eg. revival) – rather like putting a key into and winding up a clockwork toy. [Paws 4 Thought – a Special Town in the Thames Valley refers.]

There’s other observations I could make but for now let’s note Liz’s emphasis is reiterated by Suzanne Payne editor of UK Prophetic Words (emphasis added),

“Richard…it is a key time for this word!

Now, it is particularly significant that 8 years have passed since Liz published the full word and call to Christians to defend our Nation and establish God’s rule. In biblical symbolism 8 represents a new beginning, a new order or creation. In the account of creation God created the earth and heavens in 6 days and rested from that labour on the 7th. So the whole creation as a universal, harmonious corporate entity had its first ‘working day’ on the 8th day! (See next post for unexpected confirmation on ‘8’!)

Also, I’d had the distinct impression of 2018 being a year of going up a level, like in spiraling up after having gone around full circle ie as in a 7-year cycle. Personally, I wanted to move into the more restful 7th year of this blog’s cycle (as in my New Year thanks) yet have a strong sense of moving into a new level – and most astonished to get an award!

A most intriguing closing thought: I’d considered re-publishing my first New Year’s blog  Points to Ponder 2011-12 on its 6th anniversary. I didn’t do so yet its subject of Biblical cycles is repeated a couple of paragraphs back – and I sure didn’t plan it that way!

Many thanks to all those who have kindly shared Liz’s call to pray for Britain.

A Prophetic Word and Call to Pray for our Nation

An unusual turn of circumstances that can only be of the Lord have drawn the following document to my attention. I invite readers’ prayerful weighing of and intercession based upon this valuable word of prophetic encouragement and direction from Liz Evans. (An account of those ‘God-incidents’ will follow.)

I’m grateful for her kind permission to publish and, as Liz writes, “The more prayer the better”. I’ve copied/pasted it direct from the email to retain her emphases (hence the Times Roman – depending on your browser! – rather than usual sans-serif typeface and minimal editing).:

Liz Evans’ Word for UK – Call for Christians to pray for the Nation 

 

Sharon Stone was chatting to Liz in the green-room at a conference and asked her, “I believe God has given you a high-level Word for the UK about castles?” Liz asked her how she knew, and Sharon replied that God had told her about it.

 

Liz went on to tell Sharon what God had been showing her:

“God is doing a work of restoration in His church at the moment. He is restoring the church to Himself in intimacy and commitment, He is restoring the church to one another in unity, and He is restoring authority to the church. 

What is authority? Authority is the spiritual right and power to enforce His Kingdom rule to the world and in our lives.

 

God gave me a picture. In this picture I was having balls thrown at my head and I was being knocked over. And then quickly the picture changed. I was learning to duck and dive, and the enemy was throwing balls at me, but none of them were hitting me because I was getting wiser. But then God showed me the 3rd picture. And in the 3rd picture I had the ball. And it was now you run. That’s where the church is in this season. This is key for where we are as a nation. Some of you have been downtrodden and things have come against you in your lives but you’ve got more mature, you’ve learned how to walk in spite of those things and in spite of the things that have been happening in our nation. But you see in this season God is giving us the ball, and He’s expecting us to do something with the authority that He is giving us.

 

Where are we as a nation, and what does He want us to do with that authority? I want to tell you a story of our nation. In the 11th century, 1066, the Normans came over and they conquered the country and they put the whole of the country under King William – William the conqueror. And in order to establish and perpetuate their rule, they embarked on a series of castle building. Please note that at this point they already had authority in the land. It was theirs. But they built these castles to do certain things. They were a place of presence in the area, they were visible, so they made a statement. And they proclaimed the rule of the King and defended the land that had been given to them.  They were places of watch, seeing what the enemy was doing, seeing what was happening; and they sorted it out, they brought safety and they enforced his rule. They enforced the rule of the kingdom.

 A place of presence. A place to bring rule and order, and enforce the rule of the King, that’s justice in the land. And a place of watch, a place of prayer. What does that sound like to you? That is our remit as the church of Christ. To be the castles in the nation. This is the function of the church. You might say well that’s a nice parallel Liz, it kind of works, but why is that pertinent to the Word for the UK at the moment, at this Kairos time in our nation? Because you know that a Kairos time is ‘now’ [emphasis RB]. It’s a window of time. It’s not a Chronos time, which is on-going.

We’re at a key time. It passes. And I need to tell you that, while I’m being calm and considered because I want to communicate this to you, inside me there is a cry and I want to be on my knees before God saying ‘O God, let us not miss this time as your people because it will not come again’. And the issue of timing is key. You know, there are many prophetic people here. Timing and application are what makes a prophecy, after interpretation, effective. We don’t just want to get the revelation; we want to bring forth the fruit that God intended.

 

Now the function of a castle took on a particular importance at a certain time in the nation. And this is where we are. When King William was getting older, castle building became a key strategy because when a monarch dies, it’s a key time, it’s ripe, for the rule of the land, of the occupying force, to be challenged. It’s a vulnerable time. It needs covering. So their castle building increased to be a presence and impose rule. You know what’s coming. Since receiving this Word I’ve been hearing from God and then prophetic voices around the kingdom and the world, in totally different streams of the church, talking about the Queen. And I’ve realised that they’re picking up on it too. One of the prophets I was talking to at lunchtime, one of the speakers in the speakers’ lounge said; not knowing what I was going to bring or even that I was going to bring this this afternoon;

Hey Liz I had a vision, I had a vision that the Queen was lying in state, she’d died, and then this man came and stood next to me and he said this: “The mantle of authority and peace that the Queen has carried since the moment she had hands laid on her as Queen, lifted when she stopped breathing.” And things are about to change. This same person had friends who lost a child. And the Queen wrote to them, and she said can I meet you in a hotel? And this isn’t a vision, this is true. And she went to them and she wept with them and she knelt with them and she prayed. And they said the presence of God that came while the Queen was praying with them was immense. You see, she’s carrying something. A mantle of authority, and peace.

 

Do you remember our 3 balls picture? I have to tell you that the authority ball is about to be passed. And this is a Kairos time in our nation. It’s a time when the rule of the occupying force of the land will be challenged. So our castle building needs to increase, to be a presence, and impose the rule of the Kingdom. And that has great benefits to us. The places of authority were also places of provision. When we bring order and peace to our nation and into our nation from heaven we benefit. Our children and our loved ones prosper. But I have to tell you that we have a window of time, a Kairos, to pray.

 

And He is restoring the authority to the church. There’s a unity about this prayer movement. As we come together and pray for our nation at this time. You see the time of the intercessors being isolated is being drawn to a close. They’re being drawn into the castle to bring power and to enhance rule. Because He is restoring the church to one another.

 

And God kept speaking to me about what was happening historically. It’s interesting to me that just after the Normans took over, when the castles were being raised up, the Magna Carta was written. When God was talking to me about this, this fell out of the drawer. And it happens to be a piece of the Magna Carta. And it says this, ‘The English church shall be free, with her rights and liberties unchanged’. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed but recently the freedoms of the church, especially around who they employ, what they believe and what they say, have been in question. Even in minute detail in believers lives. Whether you can wear a cross to work. The rights and liberties of the church were set in place in this nation. But, they need a watch.

And in the Magna Carta I noticed another sentence. ‘No free man shall be imprisoned without a proper trial by jury.’ What’s that? Justice. And that one has very real challenges in a time of terrorism and immigration. And our government needs wisdom. 

What were the castles? A place of watch. And a place of rule, a place where we pray for these things.

 

And then I had a dream, and it terrified me. It’s a dream which tells of a time yet to come. And in the dream I found myself standing on a pavement and there were people close, and then a black car came by. And there was a coffin in the car, and the car was covered in flowers. And I realised this dream looked forward to a time when the Queen’s rule was passing. In the dream it had happened, and we didn’t pray. I was terrified. I have to tell you that the authority ball will be passed. And God is raising up castles all over the land to defend the country. To establish His presence, His rule, and bring order in His Kingdom, to earth.

 

And there will be princes in this nation, men and women that God is raising up into a place of authority in government, in industry, government, education and in the church to take a place with God, Israel. He’s putting a name upon you of rule for this nation. Mordecai said to Esther ‘for such a time as this’. And there’s also a company of believers who are going to take their places on the walls behind those men, and pick up the watch for our nation. Esther prayed and fasted when she was in trouble. The Jews prayed and fasted. And this is what it says in Esther 8 v 11. The Kings granted to the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves. Of course I’m not talking about people. We battle not against people. We battle against principalities and powers of this dark age. 

 

The castles are a place of presence. What does it say in the Psalms? ‘God is present in the company of the righteous’. And you’ve been raised for such a time as this my friends. The ball will be passed. But we have a window.

 

And I have to tell you that application of Words is vital and if the soil doesn’t receive and respond to this Word there will be no fruit. And I’m not going to tell you who they are but the prophet at lunchtime told me what the fruit would be if we don’t pick up this Word and fight with it. But I’m looking here for good soil. Soil that produces a crop. 30% 60% or even 100%. Because our nation depends on it. Let me tell you, are we going to have 30% of our nation left to us, 60% of our nation left to us, or 100%? 

And this is a ‘masa’ Word; it’s an intercession Word. The Bible talks about the watchman of Israel as dogs that didn’t bark, well the watchman of the church are barking. All over this nation. And we’re beginning to hear it. And we need the watch and the prayer to come forth in response to that. Because we will never have such a strong position in this nation again if we don’t. This is vital. We’ve got to hold the land that we’ve been given. Because it’s our watch. So who’s going to carry that ball in prayer? So that the authority ball is passed well and it’s not dropped? If you’re a leader, we’re going to commission you that you go and call people together for prayer.

 

And He also told me that we were to prayer-walk and proclaim and that the authority of God comes where our feet tread. And I want you to understand your authority because He is the King and we are bringing the declaration that He is the King of all the earth. And  that He is the King of the nation for evermore. There will be no break in His Kingship. He has given it to us and we will hold it. The time of the priests of God to rule is arising because His Kingdom is coming. It’s time for the sons. And it’s time to anoint the priests. Leaders who will take up the watch of God. The Bible says that creation is longing for the sons of God to be revealed.”

Liz Evans grew up in a family of Church and Mission Leaders. An early passion for God’s written word was joined by a prophetic gifting when in her student days. Studying an Education and Biblical Studies honours degree, she was gripped with a desire to hear God’s voice. Time spent seeking Him began a lifestyle of loving His Voice and the growing intimacy which hearing Him brings.

Her love is to see people come to know and hear God, understand what they were made for and to go on that adventure.

Leisa Ebere: 2018 – the Lord is calling His servants in the time of great shaking

 PROPHETIC  WORD  FOR  2018

“My People, there is a great stirring and great shaking happening upon the earth today and in 2018 I am calling My sons and daughters, from the north, the south, the east and the west, to be commissioned into My service for such a time as this. For My Church is besieged from all sides and the walls are broken down and I am calling the Prophets and the Apostles of this nation and many nations across the earth to be repairers of the breach. For although there is a great desire for My Presence, My People are scattered, distracted and divided and I declare that there must be a great coming together of My People; as they consider and weigh the costs of the calling and anointing, I have placed upon their lives. For the old things must pass away,” says the Lord, “as I reveal My strategies and My intent for this nation, and many nations around the earth.  And just as in the days of Nehemiah, I am requiring My people to build the walls whilst protecting My flock,” says the Lord. “And know this, I will require focus and I will require holiness,” says the Lord, “for demonic strongholds and fleshly sin will arise to cause terror at night and storms during the day.  But be comforted, for I am providing the resources and the reinforcements to you,” says the Lord, “for My anger at those who seek to oppress you, shall not be abated.  And I tell you that the vain imaginations, false humility, and tactics of the enemy that have blinded the eyes of My people in the past, shall no longer be effective against you, for surely as Samson’s eyes were taken away due to the spiritual blindness he had towards the woman, Delilah; that this shall not happen to you. Rise Up My People, and let Me empower you for the days ahead, for surely My arm is stronger than any tactic of the enemy?  For I am bringing upon you a new season of Open Heaven, as I equip you with a battle-axe and voice of declaration in My Name, and these things used well, will be effective in casting down the enemy to a place of unquenchable flames. And I declare again, that in 2018 there shall be a great gathering of My People,” says God, “and the true mighty men and women I have chosen, shall be established, and they shall stand and declare the Word of the Lord to shake nations in My Name,” says the Lord of Hosts.

England ablaze, a third posting

fire-of-Holy-Spirit-300x194Thank you and to encourage you Tony,  author friend  William Smith emailed in response to my latest post, “God is most definitely doing a new thing right now across His Ecclesia. Our visit to Romania gave us an insight to how strongly He is impacting that particular community. His Presence leaving us all helpless to function for some time as we worshipped. Our own church prayer meeting is taking on a dimension of desperation/urgency unseen for many years, they tell me. A relentless refusal to remain as usual. Miraculous demonstrations of His work are beginning to accompany this.”
Another friend who heads up an evangelical ministry to Europe has just returned with enthusiastic reports of many Spirit-filled teenagers in their meetings in Switzerland.

My Dreams and Visions

Ive seen this for the past couple of days so i am going to post this vision concerning England which will be the 3rd posting. In the previous post I talk about those with oil lamps leaving England. In the vision I’ve had for the past few days I’ve seen one very large oil lamps similar to the ones I saw in the previous posting. The lamp I’ve seen is above the oil lamps mentioned in the second posting and it is pouring out fire. It would seem that the outpouring of fire resulted in the smaller lamps leaving carrying the fire abroad with them fulfilling Jesus’ command of go and tell. On the day of Pentecost after the fire had fallen on those in the upper room they immediately began to evangelize and magnify the Lord and the fire spread to 3,000 that day.

‘God-incidents’ validate three prophetic visions

Today’s Keep Praying & Bless focus upon Edinburgh brings a decree and blessing so appropriate to the points I wish to convey on three visions I’ve posted this week:

‘We declare that our God is a powerful God who is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh in the last days according to His Word – We bless these islands with a fresh outpouring and awakening of God, for the Holy Spirit of Truth to come and revive the church, bringing repentance and transformation in our land. – Come Holy Spirit and move over our Nation with conviction and power.’

My favorite truth from Jesus is His explanation in John 3 to His secret disciple Nicodemus of how He and we follow Holy Spirit’s leading: “The wind blows wherever it pleases…So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” 

He blew strongly last Monday morning!

Once again showered with several pieces of an Invisible Jigsaw, my eyes opened to see so many of these ‘God-incidents’ – it’s been some time since I was so blessed.

Blogging ideas got blown away! After the long weekend I intended continuing on the USA-Jerusalem theme under title, ‘World’s woes caused by its leaders’ opening with Genesis 12:1 (blessing/cursing of Israel).

After noting William Koenig’s weekend update ‘Jerusalem Countdown’, as well as Gavin Ashenden’s demand that Archbishop Welby must apologise or resign because of his latest appalling nonsense, I was set to steam away – and planning to comment once again but more fully on a series of dubious articles run in Prophecy Today UK.

So after Monday’s usual domestic tasks, I was primed and pumped along those lines.

But it all got blown out of the window – and I’d spotted a hole caused by hailstone in the conservatory’s glazed roof that needed urgent attention!  Yet first to catch up and deal with email on return to my pc – but then I saw the first jigsaw piece and another, and in between fixing the hole in the roof, I got another as I perceived the ‘God-incidents’ of divinely directed data!!  I offer them for your consideration and weighing in sequence of my ‘perceptions’:

1st PIECE

This is the vision of Holy Spirit at heaven’s door in The Revelation of The Christ and His Kingdom, as revealed to Simon Braker and which I quickly reposted on Monday. I was struck by his description of those who don’t follow His directions or would argue with others, and especially of those in the pigpen with mud on their eyes – it perfectly describes the blindness and mud-slinging displayed in parts of that series of debatable articles. (They denigrate leadership at Toronto Airport Church Fellowship for events known as the ‘Toronto Blessing’ and attempts to connect it, if not lay the blame upon it, for many churches moving away from the authority of scripture.)

Only when re-posting did I note this ‘Revelation’ is dated Thursday 14th December, a week ago today.

2nd PIECE 

A week earlier (Wed 6th Dec), I’d seen ‘Blessing the Church? VI’, about the ‘Toronto Blessing’ (better known as an outpouring of Father’s Love) featured on Prophecy Today UK. That move of God  perplexed many because of its unusual manifestations of holy and unclean spirits, as is well-known in power encounters (eg. Mark 1:21-27 – Jesus’ first visit to a synagogue after His baptism in the Holy Spirit).

In my opinion and experience, this regurgitated missive (1995 ‘updated’ 2017) decrying Toronto utterly misrepresents what the Lord has been doing. So, in view of a busy blogging week I left a very brief comment :

‘…had you investigated the FRUIT you’d find Toronto REALLY does bless believers: eg. hundreds of thousands miraculous healings and rescues from bondage in Mozambique (mosques becoming churches and Muslim provinces turning to Christ) as well as the underground crusades in Pakistan, the repentance revival at Pensacola/Brownsville that brought masses to Christ – not to mention having been a 24/7 carer for my wife for only 6 months (instead of the subsequent 10 years!!) because she was dramatically healed after having been officially registered as permanently disabled, plus 5 improvements after subsequent recurrence!…’

3rd PIECE

My remarks generated a couple of queries, including a rebuttal from someone who,  like me, had been active in satan’s camp,  some of which I responded to in more depth the following week and to the latter person on Thursday 14th December.

As the article’s author didn’t get his facts right on the beginning of the ‘Blessing’, I recommended the balanced investigation with interviews in The Story of Toronto by our Bibliophile friend John Peters, who’d been in the groups we’d been to Toronto with 10-15 years ago. He’s biographer of The Great Revivalists.

The articles’ antagonism and judgementalism suggests their author is operating in an ungodly spirit and isn’t an obedient disciple of the Lord (I wondered if he may be excluded from entrance to heaven). Therefore, over the weekend I revisited John’s book and prepared to submit more facts to that series of ‘teaching’ articles. Yet it may be wasted time; as Jesus warned us not to ‘cast pearls…’  But my action was quashed because my speculation was answered in that first jigsaw piece, and even more specifically in the…

4th PIECE

This is another Monday morning email from UK Prophetic Words of a report issued Thursday 14th December entitled Those who take offence will not partake in the next move of God’s Spirit. I saw only that title and opening paragraphs. It’s an arrow hitting the bull’s eye of that partisan prophecy’ piece and so I emailed Suzanne Payne right away for information on its author Brett Dewey before my re-posting it. I didn’t have time to read until perusing a hard-copy over lunch, before which I had a reply from Sue as the…

5th PIECE

For a mistaken reason Sue drew my attention to the penultimate paragraph of Brett’s piece and which I hadn’t yet read: 

‘Last of all I will record the vision I seen in the December One Voice prayer meeting in our Church – During worship I was focusing on the Lord and watching for his Spirit – I seen myself in what was the top floor of an office building – the building was like one of the office buildings I was working in during security work – but it wasn’t – the building also looked like the building I was at for Bible college but it wasn’t – I was sitting in a chair looking up with my eyes closed but could see all that was in the room.’

6th PIECE

Those words in Sue’s reply sent me back six years to a very vivid visionary dream about the Kingdom of God and which confirmed what Bill Johnson, a close associate of the Toronto leaders, had prophesied that day during the first Revival Alliance Gathering in September 2011 being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK (Father Let Your Kingdom Come and Update in previous post refers.) I replied that perhaps Brett should return to the vision and open his eyes to look outside the windows! 

7th PIECE

But in fact he’d already done something similar! Over lunch I read his whole piece, which closes with the vision received this month. There, I found that what Sue quoted is followed by:

Suddenly the whole roof lifted up off the floor and there were just open heavens – I had the feeling the Lord was removing restrictions – possibly the restrictions of man – we have perhaps put limitations on God – He removed the roof: there was no limit now – all restrictions man made or otherwise being removed in Jesus name.’ !!  W-O-W!  DOUBLE WOW!!

8th PIECE

Brett’s report opens with a dream in October featuring an incoming huge wave of God’s Holy Spirit but he notices someone attempting to prophesy by means of an unclean spirit – the Spirit of Offence. He hears the Lord instruct him on its meaning and realises the person prophesying wasn’t of God, yet presents herself as a prophet and who is a Christian. Unfortunately and sadly,  it speaks to me of the spirit behind those articles on a Christian prophecy website,  one I’d highly recommended to readers upon its launch!

Of particular importance serving as a lesson for me is what Brett learned at the Fire conference about the need to check ourselves and repent of any taking offence. I chose, therefore, to forget about taking that ‘Blessing’ issue any further.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

In closing, it’s worth reminding ourselves of Brett’s comments on such issues:

The Lord said that there would be many who would be offended because of Him. I felt a peace and a witness that what He was going to do in the next wave of glory would be offensive to many – especially people that had no room for GOD’S sovereignty in their mindsets…

‘I also believe the Lord encourages us not to be offended if other churches despise you or are offended, because you let God’s work be done and His Spirit manifest in all his Glory in the midst of your meetings. Hold fast to what is true. This is what the next wave will bring.’

Selah!

Praise and thank you Lord for such blessing and to everyone in this ‘invisible jigsaw’ for blessing and teaching me so much more than I knew before the start of this week.

May everyone reading this account be thoroughly blessed with fresh insights into our relationship with Jesus Christ and our heavenly Father’s love.

England ablaze – a second dream

Kitt Peak National (and Solar) Observatory outside Tucson: RB 4.2008

From his ‘spiritual observatory’ over 5,000 miles westward around the globe in Tucson, my cyber-friend Tony Puccio reports this pertinent dream of holy fire for the UK…and we’re increasingly aware of the lights starting to poke out through the blanket of spiritual darkness…

My Dreams and Visions

I start this post by posting a vision I had received 2 + years ago concerning England
The morning of, 08/17/2015, I had the following vision. I saw many many row boats, note that I said row boats and not ocean liners, leaving the shores of England for other parts of the world. Each of the boats had a small crew and I only saw one person rowing. This is part of a larger post entitled, ” England Ablaze”. I post this excerpt as it relates to a dream I had this morning.

This morning I had a dream where I did not see the country because it was dark but knew that it was England that i was seeing. In the vision above rowboats were leaving the shores of England. In the dream I had this morning I saw lit oil lamps leaving England. I do get the sense…

GPS#10 – vision warns about taking offence at Holy Spirit’s next move

Thank you to the Lord, Brett Dewey and UK Prophetic Words for this, which although not first or the last on a coming ‘Holy Spirit wave’ is exceptional. NB: this from Kingston and that of Simon in Leicester were originally published on the same day and confirm some events of that day – now that’s what I call God’s Global Prophecy Signalling system! 

THOSE HOLDING ON TO OFFENCE WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE NEXT MOVE OF GOD’S SPIRIT

During My time of fasting and praying in October I was given a dream.

In my dream I was standing upon an old wall overlooking the ocean. I pointed out towards the ocean and began to prophesy:

“A WAVE IS COMING, A WAVE IS COMING!”

Next thing I could see, there was a huge wave which was rolling in from the back. The wave came in and went half way up the beach. An old lady was on the beach and the water came to her feet. Even though she had wellington boots on she didn’t like the water being on her feet and walked off the beach.

I was again on the wall and looked out to the sea and began to prophesy “A WAVE IS COMING, A WAVE IS COMING”. Straight away a huge wave came in from the back.

This time the wave came right up to the beach and completely covered it. There was, however, a divider between the waters and right over the back on the right hand side, some distance from the shore, were a small group of people playing in the surf and having fun on their surf boards, enjoying the wave.

I then looked and I was standing by a teal green fence and it was like I was holding onto a fence. A woman who was standing on an old wall a little higher than the fence started trying to prophesy to me, but when I looked into her eyes she was of another Spirit not the Holy Spirit – so I called fire on her and she disappeared out my dream.

I then heard the Spirit of God speak saying:

“Those that are holding on to offence will not be able to enter in to the next wave of My Spirit.”

Also the woman prophesying that wasn’t of God presented herself as a Prophet, but was a woman who was a Christian; in offence she had been prophesying out of a divination spirit – as those in offence open the door to function from that Spirit when allowing it in – WATCH FOR THIS!

I first took the dream personally as a warning for me not to enter into offence – but later while attending a connect group in our Church, I felt led to release it – shortly after for the next few weeks I had fun walking out this word as that Spirit of Offence came through different vessels trying to find access to my life and calling, but never prevailed.

November’s 2017 Fire conference on the Saturday – I again saw this Spirit of Offence. I began asking the Lord what this was and had I offended him in any way – I began repenting – The Lord said that there would be many who would be offended because of Him. I felt a peace and a witness that what He was going to do in the next wave of glory would be offensive to many – especially people that had no room for GOD’S sovereignty in their mindsets.

I was also was reminded about the old woman, whom I believe represented an old Church, in my dream above – perhaps one set in religion, or tradition passed down – she didn’t like what the Spirit did and didn’t want to be in the water, which depending on the colour, represents the Spirit. She was stuck in tradition and legalism and hadn’t grasped the concepts of GOD’S enormous grace and sovereignty.

I also believe the Lord encourages us not to be offended if other churches despise you or are offended, because you let God’s work be done and His Spirit manifest in all his Glory in the midst of your meetings. Hold fast to what is true. This is what the next wave will bring.

Also I want to include that recently after releasing a word in our Church – KingsGate, Kingston – about turning the page and not being stuck on a page in the book of our life – as God has started your story and there was more – turn the page and keep walking – after I went and laid down before the Lord as His Presence became more manifest, again I saw this Spirit of Offence come out of a dark place – this time it was pinging back and forward looking for a place to land on the Church – I felt this was a prayer point and also it was an assignment from the enemy to abort us from enjoying the next wave of God’s glory which he has planned to be released in our meetings at a very large proportion.

I should have bound it when I saw it, but I just waited to hear more from the Lord about it.

Last of all I will record the vision I saw in the December One Voice prayer meeting in our church. During worship I was focusing on the Lord and watching for His Spirit – I saw myself in what was the top floor of an office building. I was sitting in a chair looking up with my eyes closed but could see all that was in the room.

Suddenly the whole roof lifted up off the floor and there were just open heavens – I had the feeling the Lord was removing restrictions – possibly the restrictions of man – we have perhaps put limitations on God – He removed the roof: there was no limit now – all restrictions man made or otherwise being removed in Jesus name.

I DECLARE AN OPEN HEAVEN AND WAVES OF HIS GLORY FLOODING OUR MEETING PLACES, FLOODING YOUR CONNECT GROUPS AND FLOODING YOUR HOMES – FLOODING YOUR CITIES, TOWNS AND NATION.

I ALSO FEEL THAT 2018 IS A YEAR OF INHERITANCE – RECEIVING INHERITANCE. GO FORWARD IN CONFIDENCE FOR THE LORD IS WITH YOU!

Brett Dewey, 14th December 2017

Footnote: the full word excites my spirit for two reasons: one connected to the warning and links into aspects of Simon Braker’s vision; the other is related to what propelled me six years ago from private correspondence into public blogging about the prophetic. The jigsaw pieces validate details of both prophetic visions, as told in this post!

Simon Braker: awesome vision of entrants to the Kingdom and of players in pigpen!

Simon posted this last Thursday on Prophetic Voice Leicester Facebook page (typeface colours by RB). It is especially pertinent in view of my ‘coincidental’ debate objecting to an article demeaning Holy Spirit’s bringing our Father’s love into the world via Toronto since 1994 (as here):

5778 The Year of The Door (Prophetic Art of James Nesbit – click4link)

THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM

The Lord took me into a vision/dream.

I was stood in front of a giant door; the door was so large that I could not see to the top of it.

As I watched, I saw people walking up to this door. It was at this point that I saw that this one door was actually made up of many small doors within the one big one.

As a person walked up, suddenly many of these small doors would open as they approached. As they did, blinding light of many different colours shone through the door.

I saw that as each person approached, they were greeted by a person the like of which I’ve never seen, and it would be very hard to explain.

This person had no fixed shape: like fire, wind or water; they also had no fixed colour as they shifted and changed constantly. As I looked, in the midst of this I could see the face of a man, the face of a lion, the face of a lamb, the face of an eagle, the face of a dove, and the face of a woman and the face of a small child all at the same time.

Sometimes one face would become clearer than the others, yet the other faces could still be seen in the midst of the wind, the fire and the water.

I understood that this person was the Holy Spirit; as each person came to the door, He would greet them and invite them to enter into a new door.

I heard Him say,

“The greatest doors are the ones you have to bow lowest to get through.”

As one older man came forward many of the small doors opened all at the same time. The light was both refreshing and blinding at the same time.

The man greeted the Holy Spirit and clearly they were close friends as they embraced one another like brothers; as they did the man was lost in the flames, wind and water.

They spoke for a short time then the man looked at the door, smiled then bowed to the ground and began to crawl towards a very small very low door. As he got close, he reached out to open the door; the moment his hand touched the handle he was lifted up off the ground at an awesome speed and a door that was very high up opened to him. Blinding light poured out the door as it opened as he entered in.

It was at this point that I noticed there were other people in front of the door. Most of them ignored the Holy Spirit; others actually argued with Him when He directed them to a door to enter through.

Still others were trying to climb up to the high doors but they would keep falling; each time they fell they became more and more bitter.

I then saw another group; they were shouting, ”You must only come through this door,” and not only did they try to force people through it, but they also tried to stop people going through the other doors the Holy Spirit was directing them to.

I could see that as a new door opened for a person it would sit upon the other open doors that person had, so each new door sat upon the others.

I then saw another group of people to the side of the door; they were all together rolling around in the mud in a pigpen. They were blind to their door for the mud covered their eyes; I could see many had been in the mud so long that they had begun to rot in the midst of it.

Upon the door I saw the words –

THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM

Let those who have an ear hear!

Lana Vawser: 2018 – the family, fruitfulness and fear of the Lord!

As at the close of the previous post the full text of the very deep understanding about next year that Lana gained from the Lord reads as below. This is a very powerful word based upon the following sub-heads:

  • Family
  • Family Units
  • New Vision & Blueprints in Family
  • Children of Promise
  • Family of God
  • Increase of Identity Revelation
  • Fear of God
  • Get Ready to Go Back to School with Holy Spirit
  • Isaiah 6 Encounters
  • An Unquenchable Fire
  • Greatest Year of Fruitfulness Thus Far.

2018 – THE YEAR OF FAMILY, FRUITFULNESS AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD!!

‘About 4 months ago the Lord began to speak to me about 2018. The Lord highlighted to me “2018 being the year of FAMILY, FRUITFULNESS and FEAR OF THE LORD.”

‘The sense that surrounded me regarding this prophetic word, was that what the Lord is going to do in 2018 is going to leave God’s people and the world in awe and wonder of who He is.

‘2018 is going to be a year of THE UNEXPECTED in many ways and will leave people and nations in AWE of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

‘As we move into 2018, I believe that the Lord is asking for a deeper level of yieldedness. A deeper level of trust that says “Lord, whatever your way, I am ALL in. Even if it looks like I didn’t expect, I am ALL IN!!!!” Continue reading

The Fear of the Lord #3 (with GPS#9) – Holiness and purity of God

In referring a week ago today (4th December) to my foretaste of the Lord’s return plus the Lord’s wanting us to ask for “the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God”, I’m very concerned for its falling not only upon our fellow citizens but also and foremost upon all clergy and laity in every part of the Church. I’d noticed this topic started in Scotland and has been heard elsewhere in the UK (see #1 and #2) but had already been received on the other side of the world – in Australia!

We thus have another example of the Lord’s GPS in action (Global Prophecy Signals). So let’s read and weigh two more words on the fear of the Lord, the first by courtesy of UK Prophetic Words.:

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ABOUT TO BLOW VIOLENTLY THROUGH OUR CHURCHES

‘Last night (3rd Dec) driving home the Holy Spirit whispered the word “Hurricane” to me.

‘I felt that the Holy Spirit is about to blow violently through our churches. Anything that is not firmly anchored down will be blown away – I feel that we about to see a mighty and potentially frightening move of God’s spirit that is going to purge everything that is not anchored in him.

‘I feel this is to prepare the church ready for the following move of God where God manifests His glory in a more intense and astonishing way that we have ever experienced.

‘This mighty blowing of His spirit is an act of loving kindness. Holiness and purity will be essential to host the next level of glory that God wants to pour out on His bride. However, Sin and compromise cannot exist in the full glory of God. Ananias and Sapphira found this out to their peril –God in His love wants us to avoid the consequences they experienced.’

Eddie Liley 4th December 2017

The next day in Queensland, Lana Vawser published an extensive message she’d been hearing for a few months, which includes this of direct relevance to our theme:

THE FEAR OF GOD

‘The Lord has been speaking to me so much about the fear of God being restored to the Church beginning in greater ways in 2018. The Lord showed me this happening through signs and wonders, huge amazing demonstrations of His power and the UNEXPECTED ways of God.

‘The Lord is about to BLOW YOUR MIND in 2018! He is going to do things you have never imagined. You are going to see Him move in nations in amazing ways.

‘You will see Him use the FOOLISH things of the world to shame the wise.

“But God chose them who the world considers foolish to shame those who think they are wise, and God chose the puny and powerless to shame the high and mighty. He chose the lowly, the laughable in the world’s eyes – nobodies – so that He would shame the somebodies. For He chose what is regarded as insignificant in order to supersede what is regarded as prominent, so that there would be no place for prideful boasting in God’s presence.” – 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 – The Passion Translation

‘In 2018 there will be greater demonstrations of how the Lord uses the things the world considers foolish, the unexpected things, the lowly to display His power, His Glory and restore the fear and awe of God to the Church and the world.’

This is part of an extensive message Lana published for 2018 on 3rd December which, as with all material she shares, is worthy of study and weighing and will appear in this blog’s next post.
