Jesus opens my Bible to answer my ‘newbie’ questions!

TO GOD ALONE BE THE GLORY

My testimony to the Lord’s saving grace as told in the recent posts, was among the first postings on this blog in December 2011 and entitled Death or Destiny? Choose Wisely. I was reticent to go into any depth about my bondage to satan but, in view of today’s widespread ignorance, I told the full story in 7 installments for the event’s anniversary in 2013 (No 7 and My Journey Into Freedom). Over discussions here and on another blog last year someone thought my brief references to Islam indicated my ignorance of it and of deism in particular. So, for the record I augmented the account with necessary detail. Now for newer readers’ information, we continue with the final three parts and a NEW question 3 inserted below:

“Make your preparations – I am sending My Word, My Sword!”

Thank you to Ben Kay for informing me of this prophetic word brought to his attention at Plymouth’s Day of Prayer for the UK organised by Lydia Fellowship International on 8th September. Emailing me Friday 14th he writes, Des Branagh attended the day of prayer and realised that a prophetic word he received from the Lord on 27 August 2018 may have been relevant to this time of prayer. However, he was hesitant to share the word during the meeting but instead forwarded the word afterwards, which immediately resonated with my heart.”

Ben advises this word has been tested in Des’ local church and so permission has been given to share it more widely (colour and image RB’s):

Make Your Preparations – A Prophetic Word given to Des Branagh at 3am on 27th August 2018

You have seen the Earthquakes.
You have seen the Forest fires.
You have seen the Storms.
You have seen the Droughts.
You have seen the Floods.

I have been shaking the earth.
I have been sending arrows of fire to the forests.
I have been calling the winds and stirring your comforts.
I have been sending my chariots to collect and transport the waters of the deep.
My chariots have with wings traversed the mountain ranges, and at my command they have deposited the waters of the deep to your lands to cause flood and chaos.
I have been changing the highways of the sky to block the natural gentle rains and I have allowed your lands to suffer droughts.

All of this you have seen and experienced yet you continue with your eyes closed and your ears deaf to my warnings.

My written word has been ignored, my faithful ones have been trodden over beaten and martyred even to this very day.
The nations of Europe and the High Councils of the EU have trashed My word. With their arrogance they have made decrees that fly in My face and contradict My word. They have called what I declared as evil – good, and what I have declared good, they have called evil. They have applauded homosexuality and same-sex marriages.
Know this – I have seen and I have heard!

I have seen your evil immorality.
I have seen your murderous hands at work in the destruction of the unborn child.
Know also this – I have heard their defenceless cries and I continue to hear their cries!
I know each name of these precious little ones who are made in MY IMAGE.
Each defenceless cry is another attack on MY IMAGE as they have been ripped from their mother’s womb. I have HEARD THEIR CRIES.

To the Nations of Europe:
Germany – you have murdered My people. The apple of My eye.
France – you have removed Me from your children. No longer am I revered in your schools and homes.
Italy – I see the evil committed within the ranks of your religious priests. I detest these deeds.

To the faithful – I call you to Battle, I call you to take hold of the Sword of the Spirit, and to pray for your leaders. Pray that they see! Pray that they hear! Pray that they will understand and call their people to repentance!

Britain My hand rests on you.
I have made clear to you through signs on the earth of My anger because of your rebellion and sinfulness.
Through prophecy I have exhorted you in your churches to walk in My word and I have exhorted you to make preparation for the days that I am about to bring upon you.
I now have this to say to you:-
I AM SENDING MY WORD! MY SWORD!
There is not anything that can come against My word. There is no weapon that is formed, no kingdom more powerful that can overthrow MY WORD. With insects I brought down the might of Egypt.
I AM SENDING MY WORD and MY WORD WILL ACCOMPLISH ALL THAT I SEND IT TO DO!
IT WILL NOT RETURN NOR WILL I RECALL IT! UNTIL IT HAS FULFILLED MY PURPOSES.

Make your preparations for I am coming quickly.
Britain – I remember your zeal for Me in times past. How you took My word to China to India to African and other far off places.
I remember how you did not follow abominations of Rome. You have within your borders men and women of faith even in this day. So I will stand with you in your battle.
Make your preparations for I AM COMING!

Declaration for today’s EU summit in Salzburg

With a dinner speech due to be delivered by the Prime Minister tonight as her ‘opening pitch’ in the final phase of Brexit negotiations, intercessors are invited to participate in the following declaration published by Passion For The Nation:

EU LEADERS’ MEETING

“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands”  Acts 17:5

‘We thank you Jesus for every aspect of Godly inheritance that You put within our land. We thank you for Kingdom foundations within our government, justice systems and many aspects of our society. We declare Your purpose over this nation to display Your Kingdom and Your Kingship. This is a day when You are connecting the past with the future. Now, we continue to declare the Lordship and Sovereign will of God over every aspect of the Brexit Bill, over the future relationship with the European Union, over Trade Policy, the Customs Union, the Irish Border, and the role of the European Court of Justice, that His plans for this nation in all their fullness will be established..

‘As Theresa May meets with EU leaders today we declare,

You will make the crooked places straight

and, in the Name of Jesus, we call forth a spirit of reconciliation among all the leaders of Europe that Your Kingdom purpose will overwhelm any ungodly political, vengeful or social agenda. Isaiah 42:16

‘We speak strength, help, wisdom and authority to Theresa May, that the fullness of the leadership You have put within her will be released. We decree Heaven’s design and schedule over every discussion, that every log-jam, every deadlock and every delay caused by man or the enemy will be released, and we speak a convergence and completion that the outworking of every decision made will align and connect the United Kingdom according to God’s perfect design and destiny.’

AMEN!

Declaration for Brexit re. Northern Ireland

Posted by Passion for the Nation on Wednesday 12th September 2018 and re-published with kind permission:

From P4N

BREXIT

And He has made…every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings” Acts 17:26

In this season of governmental shift, we continue to declare, in the Name of Jesus, the boundaries, borders and sovereignty of this nation; judicial, legislative, physical, spiritual, political and economic, will be marked out, established and concluded according to God-given Kingdom Purpose and timing. We decree and declare the United Kingdom, in all its diversity, will unite behind Your plan and purpose. (First posted: May 2016)

Now, we thank You for the inheritance in Northern Ireland of those who have been willing to stand up for belief and principle. We praise You for the peace that has come to that nation in recent years and honour those who have worked together, to overcome prejudice and hatred.

In this season of the impossible becoming possible, we speak shift and turnaround, that as border issues are discussed, the historical differences between North and South, Protestant and Catholic, Unionist and Nationalist will give way to a new season of working together; that deep wounds in the spiritual realm will be healed, enabling and releasing Kingdom solutions in the natural realm. We speak the release of unique, creative and technological solutions in Jesus Name.

Now, in the Name of Jesus, we decree the heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the foundational truths of the gospel and the message of the gospel will be released with great power, unhindered by the thoughts and ways of man, that Northern Ireland will rediscover its God-given identity, rising above past difficulties and free to take her place in the days ahead.

NB: declarations published on this blog and on Passion for the Nation are primarily made from the viewpoint of God’s Kingdom purposes, not for any politically partisan perspective or support.

Breaking: Regarding the Ulster-EU/Eire border issues, readers may like be aware of a document published today by the European Research Group (pro-Brexit Tories) claims to solve this hurdle > Mogg: We Have Solved NI Border, Unlocking Real Brexit.

Triple declaration over the Church, the Government and Brexit

Old Testament prophet Habakkuk recorded, ‘I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch and see what He will say to me and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, it will not lie. Though it tarries wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Hab 2:1-3 NKJV)

Three declarations on behalf of the Kingdom published by Suzanne Ferrett at Passion for the Nation on 4th, 7th and 10th September, are of especial importance in my humble opinion.  I am, however, changing that sequence on the grounds of precedence of topic:

CHURCH

“I say to you. Lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest” John 4:35

We thank You for every promise You have given for revival and awakening and we declare this is the day for Your Kingdom to come to our nation.

We speak the revelation of the triumph of Your mercy over every individual, ministry, businessman or market place leader struggling at this time and we declare Your people will arise and take hold of every opportunity You are releasing from Heaven.

We decree and declare that Your mercy and Your grace will overwhelm every self-judgment, the judgment of others, every feeling of failure, despair, disillusionment or loss, that fresh joy, fresh strength and fresh life would come to them, positioning them for the way ahead.

We call them into Your Presence, to seek Your face, that fresh vision will come, that every shift, door and step You would release to them for this time, will be both recognised and fulfilled.

We speak to the church in the Name of Jesus, we declare “This is the Season of Revival,” and we call Your people into a revelation of the openness upon the land.  We thank You for the equipping of Your church that is taking place, and we decree and declare, in this day a fresh urgency will come to Your people, that every gift You have given – both in the natural and in the spiritual – will be recognised and utilised, and we speak courage and boldness in the Jesus Name.

GOVERNMENT

After consulting with the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for His holiness as they went out at the head of the army” 2 Chronicles 20: 21

We declare the song of the victory of Jesus will rise above this nation, changing atmospheres and touching lives, that the sound of worship will be heard over every success, challenge and failure, national and personal. We declare as the Children of God put their eyes upon Jesus, they will be lifted above every situation and circumstance, that new joy and new strength will come upon them.

Now, in the Name of Jesus, we speak the release of a fresh wind of Your Spirit to come upon Parliament, aligning the words and thoughts of our leaders across this land with Your Kingdom will and plans, and we declare shift where there needs to be shift, turnaround where there needs to be a turning, and change where there needs to be change.

In the Name of Jesus, over this season and the season ahead, across every division, change and confusion, we decree and declare this nation will be led at all times by men and women appointed by You. We decree the mantle of Your wisdom and authority will clearly mark out those You have chosen both already established and those yet to be positioned, that a new level of direction, purpose and unity aligned with Your purpose will arise.

BREXIT

“Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?’ Psalm 94:20

We continue to declare You are establishing new networks across the nations, networks of Governments, networks of trade and networks of individuals.

Lord, we stand as Your Ecclesia in this nation, and we decree and declare over every alignment, agreement, treaty, connection and relationship concerning the future of this nation, specifically concerning Government, trade, justice, borders, immigration and security, that this nation will be aligned for righteousness in every way in the days ahead.

We thank You for every man or woman who sought to bring increased peace, justice and prosperity to the lives of people and nations, and we acknowledge Your ways are higher than our ways, and Your thoughts than our thoughts.

Now Lord, even as  we have confessed the treaties, conventions, covenants, protocols, charters and agreements that have hindered or prevented Your purpose and plan for the United Kingdom being fulfilled – we specifically come into agreement with Your word in Psalm 94: 20 (Passion Translation) “ it is obvious to all, You will have nothing to do with corrupt rulers who pass laws that empower evil and defeat what is right” and we repent where any alignment has joined us with ungodliness in any form.

We declare this is a new day, and we stand as Your Ecclesia in this land and we decree and declare, in this new season, the United Kingdom will stand in righteousness, aligned and connected for the increase of that righteousness, and we take the sword of the Spirit and we cut every ungodly tie, in the Name of Jesus.

Lord, may all this be so..

Rallying Calls to Prayer – 3: examples of personal strategies

Again quoting The Rallying Cry to Prayer, “We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us; “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, I will show you how to do it.”  He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change!”

Let’s look at a couple of strategies that arose during personal prayers.

Suffocation/Strangulation

A prayer partner emailed me in early July, and has kindly permitted publication of her text:

“I have continued to pray for the Kingdom, particularly since the Brexit vote. I know a very few people who support it and many I know are viciously Remain, many clergy particularly. As we moved to the vote I sensed I was to set a large candle alongside a cross, light the candle and pray the Lord’s will. The candle burned day and night for a week and only as the vote Brexit was won did the light from the candle fall on the top of the cross. I knew it was the Lord’s will!

“The tentacles seen prophetically will be cut off so freeing this nation from strangulation, a couple have already shriveled…”

“On a recent journey down the M6/M5 my eye was taken by the, now prolific, Japanese Knotweed on motorway embankments. Some areas the native plants are completed covered, even shrouded and probably unable to withstand the suffocation/strangulation. A sad sight and one that continues to inform my prayers. This I’m prompted to write to you about as this seems to be an example in nature of the spiritual challenges of our times.”

After re-publishing the Cryers’ call to prayer I replied, “The symbolism of the knotweed encapsulates failure within government to progress Brexit properly and expeditiously. It seems to be appropriate as a subject of prayer in response to the invitation I blogged this morning. My reaction is to pray that it be severed with invisible scissors…”

However, upon pausing a while a strategy seemed to pop into mind, so I continued, “It would be better for the Lord’s hand to touch and remove it all, as though rubbing it out of existence!”

I heard that the ‘knotweed’ symbolism gave direction to her prayers because it relates to her personal situation. She writes, “Please use and share this illustration, I sense it is the Lord’s image. I will pray for complete removal, as I do our removal from Europe’s strangulation.”

Holy Fear and Terror of the Lord

You may have noted that three of last week’s posts linked to Revd Gavin Ashenden’s strong denunciation of the apostasy publicly pronounced and exhibited by the Dean of Ely Cathedral in flying a rainbow flag from the tower for the weekend’s Pride event.

Most unusually I was awoken early Saturday morning and recalled that offensive action and, rather than being annoyed, asked the Lord about how I could pray. I was reminded of Wanda Alger’s recent excellent re-posting of a dream in which she saw the awesome power of Holy Spirit moving across the world in a focused beam bringing the reverential fear of the Lord (read Holy Fear and Terror of the Lord).

I recalled that had happened to me on the fateful night of the Lord’s visitation in 1989, and that intense conviction of my personal sin had resulted in the immense blessing of my salvation. Therefore, I could pray for the Lord to bless Mark Bonney and his ilk the same way He did when He turned up in my life.

Lord, may Your Holiness fall upon the dean, clergy, residents of and visitors to Ely and bring them to true repentance for Your glory’s sake, Amen.

Rallying Calls to Prayer – 2: Prophetic Strategy

In The Rallying Cry to Prayer the Cryers write, “We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us; “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, I will show you how to do it.” He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change!”

My friend Neil Mackereth, one of the valued contributors to this blog’s material on the EU and Brexit (as here and here) and author of Signs, wrote to me on Friday with these intriguing insights:

Dear Ginny, Dear Richard,

‘I felt a call to respond to the “frinkle” moment I had on reading your very recent call to prayer. It is truly amazing how themes are developed, by God giving to various people different pieces of the jigsaw.

‘The other morning I woke with the phrase “the darkest hour is just before dawn” in my mind. The conviction that we are now in the most intense time of prophetic fulfillment was very strong, as was the realisation that the return of Jesus (the second advent) will render biblical prophecy obsolete (I know there will be other millennial events to follow but we won’t need the Bible to tell us about them).

‘My thoughts were directed to the urgent need for prayer. I was reminded that the Old Testament prophets were often the lone recipients of God’s guidance for the people. In particular, Daniel saw it as essential to intercede on behalf of the people, to plead for the prophetic fulfillment of the end of 70 years of exile. Also, Elijah saw himself as the sole prophet of God against 450 prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:22)

‘I am convinced that in our “New Testament” times the strategy has changed. Each “prophet” receives an element of a much bigger picture and it requires unity for the jigsaw to be completed. Friends of God live in the stream of prophetic enlightenment and recognise the signs of the times. With information and understanding comes responsibility!

‘Put another way, there are now many “mini-Elijahs” in the Christian community and, by the unifying process of networking, their various prayer groups will become the Elijah church: an essential bedrock which God is establishing in this nation and beyond.

‘Returning to 1 Kings 18, at verse 21 Elijah says “How long will you waver between two opinions” which might well be the mantra for prayer groups today. Do we really believe God is in charge? Do we really believe that God gives us signs (e.g. the EU displaying the “badges” of Babylon)? Do we really believe that God made a covenant with Abraham and his descendants? Answers to these sample questions will influence our views and prayers on God and Mammon, Replacement theology, Brexit and so on.

‘Lastly, it was made clear to me that Christians are not to just sit in the audience watching the play. We are also players (audience participation!) and need to study the script in order to fulfill our roles in the unfolding drama…’

AMEN my friend and how amazingly this fits into what I’ve recently learned, as will be revealed in a video to appear in the next post!

Rallying Calls to Prayer – 1: A Vast Army

When the servant of the man of God arose early and went out there was an army surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And (so) his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”

Elisha answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And he prayed and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6:15-17 NKJV)

The urgent Rallying Cry penned by Hugh and Ginny Cryer, republished here last Thursday, invites readers to join them because, “We believe that the Lord is about to move powerfully in this nation once again. This time not just on the indigenous people of this land as in Wesley and Whitfield’s time but now in present day UK…

“For this move of God to come, I believe that the Lord is wanting to raise up an army and that we are all part of that army. His army for His battle for Britain today. Just as Rees Howells wrote about the battle for the skies and the heavenlies in 1940, so we are now called to wage war in the same way…”

A VAST ARMY

They’re not alone in sensing the importance of such a holy call to Christians in Britain, and I thank everyone who’s commented on the blog or contacted me direct. Edmund Phillimore emailed the next day and kindly permits me to quote him:

‘Yesterday at New Wine, James Aladurin of Prayer Storm spoke twice calling for people to become passionate prayer warriors birthing the revival we long to see.

‘He (told) how in 2017 the Lord drew his attention to Acts 12. When Herod found popularity following his executing James, he arrested Peter. Peter was asleep, in chains and in prison. But he was delivered by the angel as the church prayed through the night. He sensed the Lord saying that both church and nation are like Peter. There is an apostolic calling on the U.K. to take the gospel to the nations and like Peter they are asleep, in chains in prison. But there is also the church of constant prayer. Just as the prayers of the church in Jerusalem led to Peter being set free supernaturally, so God will deliver church and nation in response to the prayers of his people. Wake up prayer warriors!

‘I believe many at New Wine responded to James’ call. The Lord is on the move.’

Also, he noted that on Thursday UK Prophetic Words had republished a word Veronika West had brought in which she saw an army of the Lord advancing. I’d noticed it some days earlier on her Facebook dated 30 July. It reads:

A MIGHTY ARMY IS RISING; DIVINE TRANSITION

‘LOOK! SEE there is A mighty Army that is Now MOVING and advancing upon the earth, there is a divine deployment in the camp of the Lord, THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD ARE TAKING NEW GROUND AND OCCUPYING NEW TERRITORY. The Season of Great Change and Divine Transition is NOW upon us.

“LISTEN! Do you HEAR The Sound of many trumpets, THE sound of the Shofar”? IT’S TIME TO BREAK CAMP AND MOVE FROM THIS PLACE OF BONDAGE AND STALE BREAD, the Land OF PROMISE, PURPOSE AND MANIFEST POWER IS BEFORE US.

‘I hear the Spirit say, “WARRIORS RISE UP AND TAKE YOUR PLACE ON THE FRONT-LINE OF BATTLE, FEAR NOT FOR THE GIANTS STAND POWERLESS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE KING, SEE, I HAVE PUT VICTORY IN YOUR MOUTH, NOW Open your mouths and I will fill it, speak forth My Word and it will go forth to pierce and penetrate the heart of darkness in the land. WATCH! As the AUTHORITY and the transforming Power of My Word goes forth to move and make way, for the Rivers of My Glory to Come and Break forth upon the Nations.

“COME UP HIGHER, YES! Let us go up together to the high places, where the fragrance of the prayers and Praises of My PEOPLE fill My nostrils. Have I not said, the Books that have been sealed will now be opened? WATCH! As My Transforming Glory will Come, WATCH! As My Justice and Vindication will Come, YES! WATCH! As My Compensation will come, For I will pour out My Healing and Restoration Power upon the people of the land. Now Listen! Beloved You must Eat My Word, Speak My Word and NOW Run with the Roar of My Resurrection and Redemptive Power”, says God.

‘Friends, I see the Spirit of Revelation and Wisdom manifesting mightily and powerfully in the hearts and minds of God’s people in this Season causing many to Arise in greater power to go forth and declare their righteousness by His blood. Strongholds and strangleholds of the enemy are being dismantled and broken, I See an Army of Warriors begin to conquer and overcome those things that seemed impossible in the past, the weak are being made STRONG. I hear the sound of a war cry of Victory over the people of God, satan is defeated, the hand of God has overturned and overthrown every situation that has seemed insurmountable and impossible for many.

‘Listen! the ground is fertile and the seeds that you have sown in the last season will SUDDENLY AND QUICKLY COME FORTH, THE SEASON OF Abundant Harvest is upon us. The HAND of God is now moving with greater Acceleration and Momentum UPON THE EARTH, I SEE a SUPERNATURAL SHIFT taking place in the heavenlies which will now begin to manifest in the midst of you, WATCH AND EXPECT A DIVINE MOVE OF RESTORATION, TIMELY REVERSALS AND UNEXPECTED RECOMPENSE in every area in your life where the devourer came to rob, Kill and Destroy. hindrance that has drained and stifled your momentum is being uprooted and removed, there is a clear pathway forming in front of you. A pathway that leads to fruitfulness and Increase. The Spirit of God has equipped and empowered you to Stand and be Strong in the conflict, there is a battle that rages in the heavens on your behalf, be assured of His Blood that has overcome every demonic assignment and onslaught. He has given you weapons to war and to win, Now Take hold of His Peace and His Salvation, take Hold of His Righteousness and His Faith, Let His Spirit and His Truth guide and direct you, I Prophesy you are Standing in His Victory in this hour.
Hope is rising, I Prophesy it’s a New Day and a New Dawn for the faithful ones of God.

‘I see the finger God begin to Stretch you beyond your comfort zone, taking you beyond the borders of the familiarity and safety, He is enlarging you and preparing you for appointed times and seasons, you are being reset and recalibrated for these are indeed set times, times of watching and waiting, Heaven is about to move, there is a release of the power of His presence, I Prophesy His promises will be made manifest upon the earth. Get ready for the Suddenlies of God will begin to sweep across the nations like Wild Fires as the cries of repentance go forth, Be Expectant for a display of God’s Glory that shall be seen on earth like never before.’

WATCH and PRAY

wpc_logoJane Holloway‚National Prayer Director at Birmingham’s World Prayer Centre, also commented upon the Rallying Cry:

“Great to see this.. Can you pass on to them that there are many such groups all over the UK.. Great to know they are meeting to seek God in this battle for the soul of the nation season…people are meeting in groups in towns, cities, villages, there are over 50+ expressions of houses of prayer and worship etc..”

The flag is her very visible calling card.

A Rallying Cry to Prayer – Your Country Needs You!

Someone was unable to go with friends from our church to a Kingdom Come conference in West Sussex and we were offered her place. Nina already had an appointment, so I took an unscheduled seat in their car and en-route was pleasantly surprised to learn what and whom we have in common! And that soon connected into this post!

I learned of our friends’ attendance several years ago at Winchester Vineyard church, where we went for monthly Encounter evenings (and prophecy courses) and got to know pastors Hugh and Ginny Cryer.

As a result of a ‘God-incidence’ in 2015 I introduced readers to them and their ministry ‘Culture Changers – Reconnecting His Family’ (as told in Heidi Baker, Cindy Jacobs: Prophetic Messages Applied and Verified).

We keep in touch through the monthly ‘E-zine’ but Ginny emailed asking if I’d publish the latest, which I’d already thought about and so replied, “Something in my spirit is excited about this and its timing.”

As Ginny says, “Although these are just little shoots – I feel that the Lord is really in this too.” I too am no great pray-er – so join in the Cryer’s request and rise up as ...

A VAST ARMY

I write this with urgency. We believe that the Lord is about to move powerfully in this nation once again. This time not just on the indigenous people of this land as in Wesley and Whitfield’s time but now in present day UK, where we are represented by many different tribes and nations who have settled here and can call themselves British.

For this move of God to come, I believe that the Lord is wanting to raise up an army and that we are all part of that army. His army for His battle for Britain today. Just as Rees Howells wrote about the battle for the skies and the heavenlies in 1940, so we are now called to wage war in the same way.

To be perfectly honest, Hugh and I do not feel we are great “pray-ers” and I want you to know that this letter is for those of you like us. To be even more candid, our hearts rather sank when we felt the Lord calling us to obediently follow Him to rally prayer gatherings. Yet we believe that the Lord has spoken to us from Ezekiel 37 – that we are like dry bones and that there is so much more that the Lord wants to pour into us – His very life! For that to happen He is showing us our need and wanting us to start to pray without perhaps always feeling the equipping to do so.

Will you join us? Will you, in this summer season of rest and holiday, when the flesh may crave “not now”; will you answer this call?

We really believe that as we all ask Him who we could gather and pray with (regardless of denomination or not), He will pull our dry bones together supernaturally and a vast army will arise, and it will be His doing to save a nation that is in desperate need.

“SO THAT THEY WILL NOT PERISH”

Does your heart sink? If so I would ask you to reflect on Jonah when an unbelieving sea captain asked him to call on his God but Jonah was asleep. The captain said incredulously, “How can you sleep? Get up and call on your god! Maybe he will take notice of us so that we will not perish” (Jonah 1:6).

The thing that particularly cut me to the quick was the point that it is not about us, but about them! About all the peoples that do not know Him in our nation. Dear friends, this is not about how we feel either. It is about who we are. The Lord is calling ALL His people to come together in our homes and other venues to pray for our nation

We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us – “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, “I will show you how to do it.” He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change! Will you answer this call to the “unqualified”?

YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU!

Whether you live in the UK or not, I felt the Lord say that this applies to you too. If you are not living in the UK, please ask the Lord what your response should be, as our joint response is to serve Him.

So this is a time for action – a time to ask and pray about what YOUR response might be as part of an army which may usher in a fresh move of the Spirit of God in our nation. The issues are above politics, they concern the spiritual future of our nation We need His family to be reconnected and to call upon God, to forget our political differences and as a “Christian” nation to pray that God’s will shall increasingly be done on earth here as in heaven.

WILL YOU JOIN US?

A few months ago I had a text from a friend in Newbury. It was abundantly clear that his heart was to see this nation turned around once more. Since then we have met together in another home equidistant between him and us and our little gathering has begun to grow.

Indeed he has just sent me this prophetic word for the UK [previous post] which I think you would want to see. Here is an excerpt from it which is very encouraging for us as Culture Changers. Not least, as it talks of the importance of keeping the home fires burning at this time:-

“I see prayer gatherings beginning to emerge in the United Kingdom in an immense way, and many will be a part of many home churches/home groups, that will be very Apostolic and Prophetic in nature. Much of the prayer gatherings will come from these, and I see a great wave of the moving of God’s Spirit through these groups. It will be a grass-roots movement of God’s remnant there…”

Would you like to be part of something like this? If so then do follow our lead and just get going – the more vulnerable we feel – probably the more powerfully the Lord can use us. And if, of course, you are intercessors and all this makes your heart soar but you know you are already on course, then please pray for those of us who are starting out!!

GETTING ALIGNED FOR WHAT GOD IS ABOUT TO DO

To finish, in early 2012 the Lord spoke to us about not starting a movement but reconnecting His Family. Just this last week He sovereignly reminded us that now is the time. As I close you might like to know of two, of no doubt many more, events being organised by others who sense the urgency of this hour.

NATIONAL DAY OR PRAYER

One is the national Day of Prayer organised by David Hathaway of World Vision which to be held on 8th September in Westminster Central Hall.

CALL THE NATION TO PRAYER – AS ONE

The other is what looks like a smaller endeavour yet I feel has national importance too. On 29th September, Call the Nation to Prayer is organising, two linked gatherings, ‘As One’. First, at the old Coventry Cathedral ruins and later in the nearby village of Meriden, traditionally the centre of England. ‘As One’, is about unity and reconciliation, prayer and declaration to call forth the release of revival prophecy upon the nation.

Remarkably the date is on the same weekend as a small gathering at our home on Sunday 30th September.

A RALLYING CRY!

This letter is meant to be a rallying cry. We believe we see the beginnings of the Holy Spirit moving in our land once more. How thrilling to be part of it. Let’s not look down and be overwhelmed by what we see. Let us look up and get His perspective once more and know that He has a good plan and that we can be part of it.

Much love dear friends

Ginny and Hugh

Richard’s Note – A Repentance Issue: this weekend sees yet another example of the End-times (#15 of About Signs) as the spirit of Herod influences the church (see this post) – read Revd Gavin Ashenden on Ely Cathedral and the Great Apostasynote some images are extremely distasteful but convey the gross unrighteousness of such parades!

Prophetic word on a tremendous shift for all of Britain!

Thank you Geoff Pick at UK Prophetic Words for publishing on 19th July this visionary, intercessory call brought by Amanda Shiflett:

WORD FOR GREAT BRITAIN AND THE ENTIRE UK

Something is shifting tremendously in Great Britain, and the entire of the UK!  I have sensed it for some time, and Saturday while I watched the Royal Wedding I sensed it very strongly again and felt that it was time to release what I have been seeing and hearing.

There are amazing things in store for our British brothers and sisters, and some great changes coming! The United Kingdom of Great Britain is rising, and I heard that she is “rising to the occasion” once again…not sure what all that entails, but it will be good. 😉

I will continue to pray into this, and release more on this later. Her destiny stands before her greatly in this hour, and much will change in the next several months and years, even within politics and government. Revival is at her shores once again! Reformation and Revival beckon her forward into her destiny! 🌊

Will there be difficult and even tragic things that will happen in the months and years to come? Yes…but for this time, the Lord is having me to focus on the great things that He has in store for this Kingdom.

I will try to say this as delicately and honorably as I can. The time for Her Majesty, The Queen to depart her assignment on this earth, is quickly approaching. I do not know if she will go on to her eternal reward this year, or within the next few years, but I have sensed for several months that it is drawing near, in the same way that I sensed for over a year that Billy Graham’s time on earth was coming to a close. Her passing will be honored and commemorated by many around the world, unlike what we have seen in many years. A sense of great change will accompany her passing, and many will notice it.

Her legacy has been great, and although she has made many mistakes (as we all do), her heart to serve her people and her country will be remembered by all. She truly believed that her role as Queen was given by God, and I 100% agree. She has lived long for this very reason…it was chosen by God to be so. She will be remembered for her integrity and graciousness, even for such a young Queen, as she was when she began her reign. Many may see her as only a figurehead, but that is not how the Kingdom of heaven views her. She has an authority that many have not understood, whether for good or for evil.

Much will change at her passing, not just for the United Kingdom, but around the world. It will be a major sign of the transition we are making in this new era.

The New Royals stepping up will be of a new breed, and they will need much guidance. I am already beginning to pray for Divine appointments to be orchestrated by the Lord, with those whom He would have to influence them, as they will influence many in the years to come. The Lord will begin to position many prophetic/apostolic people that will speak and help guide many in high places in the U.K. in the years to come. There will be Lords and Ladies that will be markedly changed, and then used by the Lord to minister to those within their own sphere of influence in the country, to experience God in a new and fresh way, and many will come into a new knowledge of the moving of the Holy Spirit. I see what might be called “Holy Spirit infiltrates” in these spheres, and some who will be “sleepers” within society, that will exact much change within the country. These are the rulers behind much of the way the country goes. I see balanced, bold, and Spirit-led men and women of God, that will be reformers within even the political, social, and business realm in the UK and most especially in England. Yes, there will still be those who will oppose God’s laws and His ways, but He is raising up those of His remnant to these places of influence, to level the playing field in a big way in this country.

I see prayer gatherings beginning to emerge in the United Kingdom in an immense way, and many will be a part of many home churches/home groups, that will be very Apostolic and Prophetic in nature. Much of the prayer gatherings will come from these, and I see a great wave of the moving of God’s Spirit through these groups. It will be a grass-roots movement of God’s remnant there. Many of these home/small groups will even be among those who are considered the “social elite”.

God’s Presence and power will be known to many once again, and there will be hundreds, perhaps even thousands, who will move in great miracles and signs and wonders, even as happened in the days of old. I see a great resurgence of appreciation for the mighty moves of God that have happened in this land in years past. I even see many descendants of great men and women of God from the UK, as they begin to realize the great heritage that they have come from. As the appreciation of their ancestors begins to rise, many will begin to tap into the equity of their generations, and will begin to function in similar anointings as those that came before. At the same time, God will be dealing with many to begin to renounce and deal with the iniquity that has been in their bloodline, and if they will follow His instructions, this will cause great healing for people, in families, and even in the land itself.

Pray with me for this beautiful land of Great Britain, and even for all of the UK, where many of our ancestors come from, as the Lord has much in store for her future, and great things He is wanting to do in the months and years to come!

Tomorrow brings a Rallying Cry for Prayer >>

News ‘signs’ confirm EU glacier_iceberg prophecy

‘And they went out and preached everywhere, The Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.’ (Mark 16:20 NKJV)

A couple of fascinating ‘coincidences’ cropped up in last week’s news in juxtaposition with critical events in the post-Chequers Brexit-Mayhem or “UK’s turmoil”, as described by our visitor, President Donald Trump. Their relevance to a recent prophetic vision indicates the Lord’s hand is at work, as though placing pieces into an invisible jigsaw:

Click image to read Express article published Fri 12 July (beware adverts!)

Veronika West’s facebook has a few brief posts on Saturday 14th July of these events, to one of which she remarks:

“WORD; ICEBERG (UK) BREAKS FREE FROM GLACIER (EU)!

This News article popped up on my news feed this afternoon and IMMEDIATELY caught my attention, as I read the headlines the Holy Spirit began to speak to me.

As I read through the news piece the first thing the Holy Spirit highlighted to me was the location of this ‘happening’: “Greenland”!

As I went with the leading of the Spirit I discovered that Greenland was in fact the VERY FIRST island to have had a referendum in 1982 to LEAVE THE BLOC, it took Greenland 3 years to break free of the EU, and it was a journey that was fraught with great turmoil and trouble. BUT CHECK THIS OUT; “DOOMSDAY PROPHETS WERE WRONG”!! [as in above link to Daily Express].

Amazingly! As I have read the news article I have been blown away by the words used to describe the BREAKING AWAY OF THE ICEBERG FROM GLACIER, ie; “it sounded like rockets going off, it was a VERY COMPLEX, CHAOTIC AND A NOISY EVENT…! “(Total confirmation of what is happening in Government in this very moment).

As I have been praying over this news article I am being shown many prophetic parallels that are unfolding before us as a Nation. I also see and believe that, in Greenland being seen as a backdrop, God is revealing a number of significant and greater strategies for the purpose of prayer and intercession going forward as a Nation in the coming days…!

Ever since sharing the “ICEBERG WORD” [RB: 6th June] I have been waiting with great expectation for confirmation to the word to manifest in some way in the natural, and I believe HERE IT IS!!!

[RB: The word begins: “I was taken into a powerful vision yesterday morning where I saw a massive glacier floating on the ocean, now as I looked at the glacier in the Vision, I saw that there was a large iceberg firmly attached to the outer edges of the glacier. Now as I drew closer in the vision I saw that the iceberg was the Nation of Great Britain. As I looked at the Nation suddenly my eyes were drawn back to the massive glacier and as I looked again at the glacier I saw these words, ‘EU, the bloc‘.

“Then suddenly I began to feel a spiritual shift and change in the vision and the waters of the ocean began to be stirred up. Then I heard the sound of cracking coming from deep within the glacier, Now as I stayed watching and listening, I saw the mountain-sized iceberg begin to move and then, suddenly, the berg broke away from the edge of the glacier and, as it tumbled and fell into the ocean, its large size and irregular shape led to the berg swaying violently back and forth, and back and forth in the waters…”]

What I find interesting is that the “Island of Greenland” (FIRST ISLAND TO LEAVE EU) seems to be a backdrop in this word being confirmed. I submit that this ‘unusual and sudden happening’ in Greenland not only serves to confirm the dream but also it brings ‘Great encouragement’ for us to CONTINUE TO WATCH! PRAY, PERSEVERE, PRESS IN AND PRAISE HIM UNTIL WE HAVE TOTALLY BROKEN FREE FROM THE CLUTCHES OF THE EU…NO STRINGS (TENTACLES) ATTACHED!!!

“GREEN-LAND”
•••••Lastly, something else that was clearly highlighted to me by the Holy Spirit were the words “GREEN-LAND”, in the vision God clearly showed me the following, and I quote;

“Suddenly my eyes were drawn back to the overturned iceberg. I saw that it had now become stable, and watched as it floated away from the glacier.

“Then the vision shifted and suddenly I saw the sun rising on the horizon, painting the skies with the deep colours of yellow, red and orange. I heard these words echo in the realm of the Spirit, “Behold! The dawning of a new day for the nation of Great Britain.”

“As I looked at the sun rising in the distance, immediately I heard these words, “Arise! Shine! For My Glory has risen upon you, Great Britain.”

“Then I looked again at the iceberg and I watched as the light and heat from the suns rays began to shine brighter and brighter upon the whole nation. Now as I remained watching the nation, I saw the tops of mountains which were covered in lush green grass beginning to emerge from the thick frozen layers of ice.

“Signs of new life began to burst forth from beneath the icy surface. Then again I heard the Spirit say, “Behold! The former things have come to pass. The new thing I now declare before they spring forth, I tell you of them!”

“The vision ended.”
