God’s ‘sign language’: follow-up to EU-web #1 – St George and the dragon

‘Jo Blogs’ post on God’s Sign Language posted Friday, proved to be an excellent lead-in to a couple of ‘signs’ sitting in my Tuesday morning in-tray on matters that had been on my mind – and then came yet another!

The first was within hours of having posted Tony’s Night Vision Concerning Brexit of a huge spider’s web and I’d then mulled over its connections with the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday 14th May.

The vision Tony Puccio saw was of a spider’s web within Europe and England being severed from its sticky strands. That evening ‘Fiona Z’ emailed me and kindly permits me to publish her message, viz:

‘Hi Richard I was in my orchard interceding for the UK with regards to the EU. I was asking the Lord, ‘How do we become totally detached?’

‘At this point I saw a clear picture of George and the dragon which I initially ignored but, on singing in tongues, the image became clearer and I asked the Lord, ‘Why Lord? Dragons are for fairy-tales – surely your Holy Spirit is enough?’ 

‘My thoughts were that fairy-tales were exactly that and if not George then ‘Who’ would the Lord send to fight and defend us in that way at this time. The Lord replied clearly,

“Michael will prepare the way for my Spirit, all unrighteousness will be burned away by the fire of my Spirit’ – He WILL have the victory!”

‘I was then reminded of Daniel 12v1. [‘At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise…’ NIV: RB insert]

‘Please ignore if you feel this not to be relevant, please test and do whatever is the Lord’s will. All I can say is that it is the clearest vision the HS has given me.’

I responded, ‘...it is indeed a most relevant revelation!  Interesting how it also relates to the weekend’s course on the book of Daniel, where Dr Fruchtenbaum explained about angelic warfare. So your email suggests our patron saint’s similar territorial activity under the head angel, the archangel Michael.

‘You will be interested to know, together with your email I had a notification from Tony’s blog of a video clip. It opens to show a person who’s been in my mind yesterday and first thing this morning…’

The rest of my reply and its associated details are for part 2 of this post. I was amazed a testing – or rather a ‘confirmation’ – of Fiona’s email was to come by lunchtime through another follow-up in God’s ‘sign language’ – or ‘God-incident’!!

During a ministry session at the day’s service for healing at Acorn Christian Foundation a dragon was sensed as having caused a great deal of bother. Within minutes the Lord quickly brought our brother through with a great blessing – He’s a good, good Father – praise Him!

As Fiona says, “Awesome when we surrender and the Lord moves in power to change everything for good!” Amen.

Footnote:

Thank you Wikipedia for the most informative entry on St George and the Dragon. It’s second paragraph offers a highly apposite insight relating to the essence of this topic, and which I’ve emphasised:

‘The legend of Saint George and the Dragon describes the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices; the saint thereby rescues the princess chosen as the next offering.

‘Only a kernel of the legend occurs in the ancient hagiography of Saint George dating to the 7th century or earlier. Here, a monarch referred to as “dragon of the abyss” persecutes the saint. The dragon-slaying may have been transferred from the legend attached to St. Theodore…’

However, that entry fails to mention that, as patron saint of England, his emblem of the red cross on white background is England’s national flag. With the addition of the diagonal crosses of St Patrick (red on white) for Ireland and Saint Andrew (white on blue) for Scotland, it becomes Britain’s flag, also known as The Union Jack.

God’s sign language

Here Joanne Rolston shares her personal reflection upon what I’ve termed as ‘God-incidents’. May our Father bless and encourage you with His ‘sign language’ direct to you too…

The Kingdom

Einstein quote, coincidenceWhat do you think about coincidences?  Is it God trying to get our attention?  Or, as Einstein said, “a small miracle where God chooses to remain anonymous?”

I think people often get signs and dismiss them as coincidences.  I don’t dismiss them, you can miss out on a lot when you do that.

Have you experienced God trying to get your attention?  Has He tried to sign to you or speak to you with a word?  To hear, you must have the Word.  Hearing comes from the Word.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17

There are two kinds of Words in the Bible, LOGOS for general application and RHEMA for personal application, where the Holy Spirit will speak directly to you, bringing  revelation.

I think hearing with the Rhema word is something that is caught rather than taught.  When I heard people…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jarrod Cooper: A new prophetic word on a new season in God

A notification of this in my in-tray preceded a private message on keeping our unity of the Spirit as we move forward in the healing ministry.  SO, I believe we all need to know and weigh this fresh word. Thank you Lord – and Jarrod:

In prayer this morning (3rd May 2018), I felt this word from heaven. I sense God would say: There is a ripping open of the heavenly realms above the United Kingdom right now – bringing the Church into a new season in God. Encounters are increasing; the prophetic realm is being amplified, clarified, and magnified…

Veronika West: yoke-breaking anointing coming upon the earth

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this from Veronika West:

A YOKE-BREAKING ANOINTING IS BEING RELEASED IN THE HEAVENS AND IT IS COMING DOWN INTO THE EARTH IN THIS HOUR

I hear the Spirit say, “A YOKE-BREAKING ANOINTING IS BEING RELEASED IN THE HEAVENS AND IT IS COMING DOWN INTO THE EARTH IN THIS HOUR. TELL MY PEOPLE TO RECEIVE IT..!

While praying today, I saw tormenting and lying demons standing behind many trying to drag them down and pull them backwards, I could hear the sound of the demons voices as they screamed words of defeat and despair over the lives of many, and those who stopped to give ear to their lies quickly became weak, weary and began to wander off from the path of truth and light.

Listen! satan knows that there is an UNLOCKING OF A NEW AND GREATER LEVEL of Freedom, Breakthrough and Divine Revelation that is being released from heaven to the Sons and Daughters of God in this hour, the enemy is aware of the mighty signs, wonders and miracles that are about to be made fully manifest in the earth.

As we know, the greatest opposition and fiercest battles always come before the greatest release and VICTORY!!

Now as I continued to pray, I felt the heat and intensity of the spiritual warfare that is going on in the heavenly realms. I saw how the enemy is ruthlessly and relentlessly pursuing the Sons and Daughters of God that are aligned and rightly positioned on the front lines of battle.

As I stayed pressing into the Lord, the Spirit of God quickened to me His Word from Isaiah 10:27 which says, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”

Today I Decree: There is a yoke-breaking anointing is being released from heaven to those that find themselves on the front lines of intense conflict and relentless battle. I Declare: you have been Called to be Fruitful on the Frontline, you have been Anointed to Advance and take New Ground, you have been empowered and equipped to Pursue, to Overtake, to Overcome and to RECOVER ALL that has been stolen from you in the last season.

NOW HAVING DONE ALL, STAND YOUR GROUND IN THIS HOUR; Do not Retreat but Run towards your adversary. FEAR NOT for you are fuelled by the Fires of the Holy Ghost and you are filled with the Spirit of Might and Power. YES! “For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire”.

Again I Decree, just as God has said, “This battle shall be with burning and fuel of fire”. I Declare, Let God ARISE on your behalf and let your enemies be scattered! In this hour, I see you overtake your overtakers in the MIGHTY name of Jesus!

I hear the Spirit say, “MY BELOVED FEAR NOT! For I am the Mighty Breaker that goes up before you to break through the gates of the enemy and to open up new doors and carve out new pathways for you, for just as I blessed you before so shall I bless you now. Watch! As My Spirit of Might and Power now leads and guides you forward into Great Victory, for you will walk in a new level of clarity, Understanding, Wisdom and Revelation in this hour. My Son, My Daughter, truly I tell you this is your turning point, a turning point towards the fulfillment of My purposes, My plans and My promises for you in this season,” says God.

“I tell you, I am not the author of chaos and confusion, but I am the author and finisher of your faith. Now As you Look into My face you will see through My eyes and you will become strengthened, steadfast, immovable and unshakable in your Faith, Hope and Expectation. My Beloved Stand, Be Still and know that I am your God, I will Never leave you nor forsake you, but I will deliver you, I will uphold you with My Righteous right hand, I will protect and preserve you from the onslaught and assault of the evil one that has come against you in this hour”..!

“Surely I am not a man that can lie, but I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, I will never leave you Helpless, Alone and Hopeless to stumble and fall in the darkness, For I am the Light and the Door that leads to Kingdom Destiny”, says God.

“Now gird your loins and strengthen yourself in MY VICTORY over the works of darkness, death and destruction. Even in this moment I am preparing you, propelling you and re-positioning you as mighty Warriors who will go forth to overthrow every throne of Witchcraft and Wickedness that has been established in the land. So Awake and Arise Oh Mighty Warriors and TAKE UP THE BANNER OF VICTORY, GO FORTH MY BRAVE HEARTS AND TAKE THE LAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN INTO YOUR HANDS. LOOK! I Have anointed you with the Breakers and Finishers Anointing, YOUR VICTORY is assured in this hour.”

Three pertinent prophetic words relating to recent posts

I’d like to draw readers’ considered attention to three words published by Lana Vawser within the past week because they’re pertinent to what I’ve sensed and noticed in my personal life since the New Year, as well as to recent blogs. One of hers is especially encouraging in connection with prayer ministry – click linked-titles to read:

8 March – Don’t Be Discouraged by the Attack on Your Inheritance…

9 March – I Am Healing the Traumas of Past Seasons (lifting the ‘cloak’ of trauma)

12 March – Prophets of His Heart, There Are More With You Than Against You! Keep Decreeing. A Major Increase of Breaker Anointing is Being Released…

The second brought confirmation of a deep work the Lord did during last week when a ministering couple chose not to delay help by usual counselling procedure but to work with the Holy Spirit instead.

That word’s importance is enhanced by the ‘God-incidental’ fact that I happened to be online Saturday morning catching up on emails to reduce Monday morning’s quantity in view of our plans to start house maintenance/re-decorating that day.

Not having time to read Lana’s email of Friday, but noticing its pertinence, I printed a hard-copy for perusal at leisure – and very soon after having done that in came an email from Leisa Ebere with the ‘Cave Dwellers Arise Prophecy’, which is a shorter version of Lana’s more in-depth word.

May the Lord be with you as you weigh and pray over the above words in preparation for a deeper follow-up to the last one.

Two prophetic words on a new wind and the armies of heaven

Thank you to Glasgow Prophetic Centre and to UK Prophetic Words for the following published yesterday:

LION BITES: A SECOND WIND OF THE PROPHETIC

God is releasing a wind from Heaven to come and surround you in these days. This is a second wind of the prophetic that will enable you to hear God’s voice with greater clarity; through visions, dreams, encounters, nudges and more. You’re going to start to see and hear more revelation as you get caught up in this wind of the prophetic. As it comes and surrounds you, start to ‘look and see’ what God is doing and ask how you might partner with Him in this work.

So catch this second wind of the prophetic. Start to listen and hear God speak, look and watch Him move. Open your mouth and release your voice and watch what God does.

Ezekiel 37:9-10
Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

THE LORD IS REGROUPING THE ARMIES OF HEAVEN – GOD IS ABOUT TO COME IN POWER

Chris Bennett writes

I sense a very short lull in the war in the heavenlies. The Lord is regrouping the armies of heaven for a decisive ‘Blitzkrieg’ to clear the way for Holy Spirit to land His invasion of the enemy’s territory. In short, the decks are being cleared for Holy Spirit to come in power among us, bringing revival at a level of power never before witnessed on this earth. Even the parting of the Red Sea for the Israelites fleeing Pharaoh will be realised as minor in comparison to that which is about to be released upon the dark forces of this world.

Chris Bennett, 9th March 2018

Blitzkrieg – an intense military campaign intended to bring about a swift victory.

Early morn’ musing on Jesus’ promise of our doing what He did

Not long after 6 o’clock a gate-shaped line of light started glowing around our bedroom curtains. Awake well before the alarm-clock had woken up I ‘said in my head’, “Morning Lord.”  Thursdays being a full-on blog-day, my mind’s usually ‘motoring’ away but, as I’d downloaded yesterday what had been cruising around my neural network since Sunday it seemed today’s going to be free-and-easy.  I could blog on something buried at the back of my mind since answering comments on the ministry of Rolland and Heidi Baker. And so I gave the day to the Lord… [LOL, several time-consuming tasks were to crop up!]

Lolling on my back and enjoying our cat’s furry back, I found my thoughts went back 50 or more years to a verse of scripture – one that’s the justification for my youthful disdain of churches and religious beliefs – not only of my encounters with inter-denominational  animosity, but also of believers failure to follow Jesus’ own life and instructions! (See my testimony.)

A scripture? One against church? Surely not, you say. The NIV version of the verse in question reads,

“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing – he will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father…” (John 14:12-13)

I’d never heard of such things being done by Christians in 1950’s and 1960’s – surely my devout mother would have known and talked about them!

And so the Lord reminded me of the path I’d taken, from which He rescued me decades later and brought me into the Kingdom; and then shown me that a number of churches  were, in fact, turning to His Way of Working as a result of an immense outpouring of the Holy Spirit. He started by introducing believers globally to the reality and meaning of our heavenly Father’s love in 1994 and has since continued to do so. And so I recalled the various ministries arising from that momentous event and my encounters therein.

<<<A_L_A_R_M >>> Get up, make two cuppa tea and cereal, over which I read aloud the ‘reflection’ for today from one of our ministers. It comes as no  surprise to discover the Lord has already lodged in my head what He wants to show me.:

The opening words for ‘Day 68 – March 8th’ in David Strutt’s Sanctuary…Moments in His Presence read:

‘Truly, truly I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.  Whatever you ask in My name….’ !!!!!!!

I really couldn’t expect anything less; now could I?

David reminds us: Jesus often teaches us to ask and ask, to keep asking through the relationship we have with Him and His Father. In fact, before the above verse He divulges that They are in one another and later continues with in-depth instruction in that upper room on Their other partner, The Holy Spirit – and how to live and abide in The Three of Them.:

“Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves Me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him…If anyone loves me he will obey my teaching. my Father will love him and we will come and make our home in him.” (John 14: 21 & 23)

As David puts it: ‘He says that we are to abide in Him…The ultimate mutual abiding community!’  I recall 12th February’s evening prayer meeting where David read from the day’s devotional on Heidi’s facebook entitled Reckless Devotion, Day 43 – Humble.

I thought he’d said, “Wreck-less” because she often describes her encountering Jesus as His leaving her “wrecked” and “undone” by His love and presence. Hence, she’s often unable to stand and has to kneel, sit or lie down in conferences. ‘Practising the Presence’ leaves her in a non-intellectual mode of communication that may strike those who haven’t yet been baptised in the Holy Spirit as being rather silly.

It was, therefore, a very pleasant surprise to learn that, like our Vicar, David is familiar with the Bakers’ ministry.

After we’d been to Toronto, where I had an open vision of the effects of their ministry upon my first seeing Heidi 15 years ago, we found it very hard being in churches that were closed to the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, it was a terrific surprise upon visiting this Anglican church two years ago to get three confirmations, one from David, immediately upon our arrival of our being in the right place – and another one months later upon learning the Vicar has connections with Bath, Bethel and Toronto!

In the prayer meeting Dave told us about one of the worship sessions at last year’s New Wine event. The band was introducing new songs, which didn’t help the congregation get into normal worship. But then came time for the preacher: Heidi entered singing in tongues and the presence of the Holy Spirit fell in power!!

Like to know why and how that happens? Then listen to Heidi’s explanation of getting close to the Lord and knowing His mind:

“So it’s obedience and love; and low and slow – and it’s all together: it’s awesome!”

Footnote: for details of my open vision see A Third Great Awakening?  Rolland Baker told me Iris’ Director Surpresa Sithole saw the same at the start of his ministry; and it relates to reactions at highest levels of the Islamic world (see Not Many People Know).

GPS#11 part 4: ‘from the ends of the earth’ – New Zealand

Another incoming ‘alert’, this time the first of two from overseas was received from the Lord’s ‘Global Prophecy Signalling’ system a fortnight ago today.

Over that weekend I’d been musing over the query from ‘AD’ on a call for more prayer for our nation and Suzanne’s introducing me to her intercessory ministry, Passion For The Nation and booklet Declarations to Change a Nation – plus Sharon’s mentoring day being of direct personal relevance!

Furthermore, I’d noted a friend’s email that evangelist David Hathaway is calling for a national day of prayer (more on this and the other overseas ‘ping’ in part 5). So an influx of intercessory calls was gathering momentum and Monday morning 5th February saw more arriving – and aligning with what I’d heard at the weekend’s meeting!

“PROPHESY WITH ‘TEETH’ – like a ‘Threshing Sledge’!”

In catching up with my long weekend’s cyber in-tray of email and WordPress/Facebook notifications I espied a courteous request from ‘Victoria’, who blogs ‘from the ends of the earth’ in the North Island of New Zealand. She asks for permission to republish my blog of the revival prophecy that Arthur Burt carried since 1937 and known as ‘There Shall Be No Ebb’. It now features on her group’s Facebook calling prayers for an Awakening in New Zealand and the South Pacific – and it was soon to be repeated here!

In its republication I’d sensed a possible reinforcing of that word in broadcasting across a cyber-platform and thus, as a prophetical declaration, in keeping with what Dr Stone had heard of the Lord blessing prophetic words with ‘teeth’. That is, the prophetic’s now going up a level, beyond what Sharon a few years ago on its fulfillment getting closer to declaration (ie acceleration), into delivery with a ‘threshing’ action now it’s harvest time.  Hence for example, the ‘fortuitous’ re-appearance of the ‘castles’ prophetic word just after this New Year. AND this is borne out by the general tenor of new material coming daily from UK Prophetic Words (UKPW).

Also, each of the Saturday’s main sessions were of direct relevance to me; not only on very recent spiritual exercises (‘Engage’ with Jesus) and a 50 years-old ambition (being a ‘friend of God), but also regarding my calling 10 years ago to blog on the prophetic! So, my focus that week was to return to basics and blog in-depth on watching and what to watch for; which resulted in two new ‘About’ reference hubs on this blog’s menu – and I reversed the title of an existing one to follow them alphabetically (Brexit vs EU).

Then on Wednesday 7th, UKPW published Prophetic Decrees for Revival in the UK – Arthur Burt  – ‘There Shall Be No Ebb’. Day’s later I asked Suzanne Payne whether or not she’d been contacted or read Victoria’s focus on that word in NZ. She replied in the negative saying ‘No other reason other than it’s the oldest prophecy for the UK that I know of.’

In fact, Sue had introduced the rationale for republishing prophecies in that post, viz:

‘Over the last few months, God has repeatedly been calling His people to DECREE the PROMISES that have been PROPHESIED over OUR LIVES, our CHURCHES, our CITIES and our NATION.

‘For this reason, I thought I would be good to daily post KEY PROPHETIC WORDS that have been given for this nation, so we can MAKE DECREES from each Word, LEADING UP TO David Hathaway’s Day of Prayer for Britain 23 March (see here )

‘It would be great if we could be in unity in doing this and SEE REVIVAL BREAK FORTH in the UK.

‘Starting with decreeing this Word from Arthur Burt 1937: I DECREE over the UK:

It (Revival) shall come as a breath…

And the breath shall bring the wind…

And the wind shall bring the rain.

And there shall be floods and floods and floods…

And torrents and torrents and torrents.

Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.

Arms and legs shall come down from heaven…

… And there shall be no ebb.”

Thus, we have a confirmation of the answer to the question AD had raised that began the influx of calls for prayer that I was observing – and now a reiteration and declaring of existing prophecies on both sides of the world – giving them ‘teeth’!!

Here are links to UKPW’s subsequent decrees based upon these prophecies:

UK Prophetic Words provides a valuable resource to the body of Christ and, as with all prophecies and visions for any source, discernment and weighing with the Lord’s Spirit and scripture are essential prerequisites when reading and using them in prayer.

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 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 Revd Dr 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.
