Veronika West: timing of Brexit & tipping point for UK and EU nations (FP #163 & GPS #44)

TIMING IS EVERYTHING, as we well know by now. The past month my online action-list continued with a dozen items in the pipeline, but at long last I got a February item on Brexit blogged yesterday together with the latest. Neil MacKereth quickly commented about the ‘fortuitous’ timing of leaving the EU, otherwise it would have been seriously hampered by the current global situation. Also last night, Veronika West contacted me and kindly permits my publishing her message about the very same matter:

‘Richard, I felt to share this word with you, I think you have shared it once on your Website but I could be mistaken. As I re-read it yesterday I felt it was significant in light of the unfolding situation…! Furthermore I believe that it’s no coincidence with the timing of our LEAVING THE EU and the timing of this virus which is sweeping through Europe.

‘Much to pray about and WE CRY MERCY OVER THE NATIONS!!! POWERFUL DREAM CONCERNING MANY NATIONS OF EUROPE….’

Published 30 June 2018, blogged on 7th July at Is Weighing vs Restoration on God’s Agenda in EU vs UK? 

‘WATCH AND PRAY OVER THE HARVEST FIELDS OF EUROPE, WATCH AND BE READY! FOR THE GNAWING LOCUSTS, SWARMING LOCUSTS, CREEPING AND STRIPPING LOCUSTS HAVE BEEN UNLEASHED FROM THE BOWELS OF HELL AND THEY SHALL DEVOUR AND DEVASTATE THE LAND”!

‘A few days ago during a 7-day fast [June 2018], I had a very powerful dream that I believe speaks to the United Kingdom, BREXIT, the EU and many Nations of Europe. Now in this clear and vivid dream I was standing high above the centre of Europe. Now in the dream as I looked down at the different countries of Europe my eyes were immediately drawn to what looked like a large black cloud in the shape of a man’s hand rising from the depths of the sea. Now as I remained watching in the dream, I saw that the large black cloud was moving quickly and rapidly increasing in size. I watched as the hand grew larger and larger and I saw the five fingers of the hand grow longer and longer. Now in the dream I could clearly see the large black hand fast approaching the centre of Europe. Now as I stayed watching, suddenly I saw the fingers of the hand begin to write these words upon the landscape of Europe,

“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN”!,

Then I heard these words, “EUROPE, EUROPE WAKE UP AND WAIL, RETURN AND REPENT FOR THE DAYS OF YOUR REIGN HAVE BEEN NUMBERED, YOU HAVE BEEN WEIGHED ON THE SCALES AND FOUND WANTING, YOUR KINGDOM WILL BE DIVIDED FOR YOU HAVE EATEN THE DELICACIES OF DARKNESS AND WITCHCRAFT AND THE DOOR TO DEATH AND DESTRUCTION HAS BEEN OPENED WIDE OVER THE LAND”, says the Spirit of God.

“EUROPE, EUROPE, WATCH AND PRAY OVER THE HARVEST FIELDS, FOR THE LOCUSTS ARE NOW INVADING, THE GNAWING LOCUSTS, THE SWARMING LOCUSTS, THE CREEPING LOCUSTS AND THE STRIPPING LOCUSTS SHALL MULTIPLY AND INCREASE. WATCH! FOR DARKNESS INCREASES AS THE HAND OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION NOW MOVES UPON THE WATERS OF THE SEA AND LAND”, says the Spirit of God.

As I heard those words in the spirit realm going forth across the land, I began to CRY OUT FOR GOD’S MERCY, MERCY, MERCY IN THE MIDST OF JUDGEMENT OVER EUROPE..!

‘Then the dream suddenly shifted and I found myself standing over the land of the United Kingdom and I saw an ANCIENT DOOR OPEN WIDE OVER THE NATION, as I looked at the door I saw these words, ‘FIRE EXIT’, written upon its mantel, now as I looked at the words, ‘FIRE EXIT’, I saw the number (91) deeply engraved into the wood of the door, immediately the Holy Spirit whispered to me, “Psalm 91”, then I heard these words,

“MY BELOVED GREAT BRITAIN, WATCH! FOR A DOOR OF DELIVERANCE NOW OPENS UP BEFORE YOU, MY MERCY NOW MAKES A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMED NO WAY, MY BELOVED, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU I AM THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO LIFE, COME AND ENTER IN QUICKLY, FOR NOW IS THE TIME, NOW IS THE SEASON, FOR THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO DOUBLE RESTORATION AND RESTITUTION STANDS OPEN BEFORE YOU THIS DAY”! (The Dream Ended)…!

[30th June 2018 –  read the psalm at close of His Kingdom Prophecy version.]

Upon my responding to her message of last night, Veronika adds this PostScript:

‘Today I have mobilised our War Room and they are crying out for Europe we believe that many Nations are at a TIPPING POINT, STANDING IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION, I firmly believe that we are going to SEE GOD ARISE AND SCATTER HIS ENEMIES. There is battle raging over the Kingdom Destiny of many Nations in Europe, THE BLACK HORSE AND THE RIDER WHO HOLDS THE SCALES ARE NOW GALLOPING ACROSS THE NATIONS…!

It’s a sobering time yet a most exciting time, a few days ago I was shown a WOMB OF A HEAVILY PREGNANT WOMAN OVER THE NATIONS…and suddenly TWO RIVERS BURST FORTH UPON THE NATIONS, ONE WAS BLOOD-RED AND ONE WAS CRYSTAL CLEAR AND I heard these words,

“FROM HIS SIDE FLOWED TWO RIVERS, ONE THE CARRIES RESURRECTION POWER AND THE OTHER CLEANSING POWER, WATCH AS MY RIVERS OF CLEANSING BURST FORTH TO PURIFY THE NATIONS, WATCH AS MY RIVER OF RESURRECTION POWER BURST FORTH TO RENEW, REVIVE AND REFORM THE NATIONS, FOR OUT OF THE WOMB WILL COME FORTH THE WONDERS OF MY GLORY LIKE NEVER SEEN OR EXPERIENCED BEFORE. BEHOLD! THE TIME OF BIRTHING IS NOW”…!

On Veronika’s Ignite Ireland Ministry

Upon drawing Veronika’s attention to yesterday’s post First Brexit and now Pandemic, Deepens the Cracks and Splits EU with Neil’s comment, she notes:

‘Yes!!! Concerning timing I felt that was highlighted to me yesterday as Holy Spirit took me back to this word. The timing of our EXIT FROM EU AND THE VIRUS OUTBREAK IS BY NO MEANS COINCIDENTAL BUT IT’S THE DIVINE GRACE OF GOD THAT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO OUR NATION…!’

Footnote: I queried the apparent dichotomy between the picture of a womb and aural words “His side”. Veronika confirmed the latter is correct for that’s what she did hear. In a clear insight many years ago about the Crucifixion I understood that, contrary to the usual claim about Pentecost being the birth of the Church, it was born when a spear pierced Jesus side and blood and water burst forth, as in childbirth! It was witnessed by His close disciple John, as in his Gospel account and expanded upon in his first letter: 

The Certainty of God’s Witness

This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness [b]in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. [NKJV 1John 5]

UK Day of Prayer & Action re Covid-19 – Sunday 22nd March

[After a few hours dealing with readers’ Fb comments and hindered by google’s inability to search thoroughly – dare I say, skewed searching! – plus online journalism obscured by torrents of advertising (Daily Mail), at long last I’ve found news issued at midnight on a day of national prayer during this ‘pandemic’!  Despite the nature of the situation, this announcement isn’t featured prominently but is just one of several items! PS 18th Mar, for the record: found article written by Anglican archbishops especially for the DM – In the time of dread we must all be good Samaritans: Archbishop of Canterbury JUSTIN WELBY and Archbishop of York JOHN SENTAMU says we should been (sic) looking out for friends and neighbours during coronaviral crisis. ]

The following statement appears in Church Times’ Day of Prayer and Action: Light a Candle, say Church Leaders (click to read article) – intriguing it’s ‘22‘ yet again :

LIGHT A CANDLE OF HOPE: A NATIONAL CALL TO PRAYER IN THE MIDST OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC


This Mothering Sunday, 22 March, we are calling all churches to a National Day of Prayer and Action. At such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.

At 7 p.m. this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your homes as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.

Whether you are continuing to worship as congregations or not, we have the great privilege and freedom to be able to call upon God, wherever we are, individually and corporately, for healing in our nation. We would pray for all in leadership at this time, making decisions about the containment of the Covid-19 virus, for those working in health and social care, and especially for the most vulnerable, whether elderly or those with underlying health conditions.

There are already stories being told of wonderful acts of kindness across neighbourhoods. Alongside your prayers, take the opportunity to telephone or email someone who is isolated, buy some additional food for your local foodbank, or offer to deliver shopping for an elderly neighbour. We may not be able to touch physically, but we can make connections in so many other ways.

In the meantime, do please attend to all the government health advice that will be issued, and look out for resources from your specific church governing bodies. At least for those of us in the global North, we do seem to be in unusual times, and wisdom and flexibility about worship gatherings are a key part of our Christian discipleship during this period.

We note that this call to prayer and action comes on Mothering Sunday: a time of thankfulness, remembering especially mothers who have served us, often in very costly ways. It is also a very mixed day for many. For some the remembrance is painful, and for others Mothering Sunday is a reminder of disappointment or loss.

In many ways, this period under the shadow of the coronavirus will be prompting similarly diverse reactions and so it seems especially appropriate that the call to prayer is made this Sunday. At this time of uncertainty join in with the National Day of Prayer and Action, lighting a candle of hope.

“Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5.7

Jarrod Cooper: What I sense God is saying about the Coronavirus

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
21 And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
22 He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.” (Daniel 2:20-22)

Today I began to pray about the Coronavirus pandemic and its effect upon my nation and the world, and as I prayed, I vividly saw God’s throne standing strong over a dark ocean of fearful global events. Immediately I was led to the verse: “The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned…

Wanda Alger: TWO words from the Lord concerning Coronavirus

On Friday, March 13, I woke up with the word, “RIOT FOR THE LORD!” The word struck me as extreme and I hesitated to embrace it until I looked up the word “riot.” Though commonly understood as a “violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd,” the Lord was highlighting another usage. A riot is…

PS to Monday newsmix – Justin Welby on Wuhan pandemic

Thank you ‘unholyjoe’ for providing this link to Anglican Ink buried deep in cyber-space!

Archbishop of Canterbury Message on Wuhan Virus Pandemic

Published 14th March, in my humble opinion, it’s full of pastoral pleasantries but lacks  any spiritual leadership whatsoever on behalf of the UK. Little wonder journalist Heffer nor myself could find it (I tried for ‘Welby national prayer call’ – but too simplistic!) 

Monday newsmix: US President Trump proclaims day of prayer; Primate Of All England Welby, British PM Johnson…well..um?

Catching up with weekend emails I note in his blog As we face this crisis, the President has asked us to pray… American author and blogger Joel Rosenberg quotes an official proclamation issued on Saturday in full. I’m referring to it here for information in order to contrast the leadership of a Christian-led federation of individual states with a once-Christian united kingdom of four nations…(all emphases mine):

THE UNITED STATES

Proclamation on the National Day of Prayer for All Americans Affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic and for our National Response Efforts

POTUS Donald Trump even quotes scriptures, and embraces devotees of all religions,  in his opening paragraphs: 

‘In our times of greatest need, Americans have always turned to prayer to help guide us through trials and periods of uncertainty.  As we continue to face the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, millions of Americans are unable to gather in their churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship.  But in this time we must not cease asking God for added wisdom, comfort, and strength, and we must especially pray for those who have suffered harm or who have lost loved ones.  I ask you to join me in a day of prayer for all people who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and to pray for God’s healing hand to be placed on the people of our Nation.

‘As your President, I ask you to pray for the health and well-being of your fellow Americans and to remember that no problem is too big for God to handle.  We should all take to heart the holy words found in 1 Peter 5:7:  “Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.”  Let us pray that all those affected by the virus will feel the presence of our Lord’s protection and love during this time.  With God’s help, we will overcome this threat….’

NOTE how this ‘newbie’ Christian draws his short proclamation to a conclusion:

‘As we come to our Father in prayer, we remember the words found in Psalm 91:  “He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”

‘As we unite in prayer, we are reminded that there is no burden too heavy for God to lift or for this country to bear with His help Luke 1:37 promises that “For with God nothing shall be impossible,” and those words are just as true today as they have ever been..’.  

THE UNITED KINGDOM

That makes a HUGE contrast with ‘Great’ Britain where no Head of State or national leader – secular or spiritual – has done anything similar to unite the nation in prayer!!! 

In A nation confronting its own mortality needs spiritual leadership. So where is Justin Welby? journalist Simon Heffer reminds readers,

‘With an absence of word-mincing unusual in his office, the Prime Minister has warned that some of our loved ones will die because of the coronavirus. He has urged individuals to rally round and do what the state cannot, and ensure those in isolation are looked after. Our political leadership has not concealed just how fundamentally life could change for all of us.  It amounts to little less than a recalibration of our existence…’

Heffer then points out and asks:

Mr Johnson began to articulate this; but the crisis takes us into philosophical questions about the nature of society and our place in it that go beyond the training or experience of a politician. They border on spiritual matters. The Prime Minister would presumably be the first to admit he lacks the authority required of a divine spokesman. When faced with matters of life and death, especially on this potential scale, our culture – even if we are not religious ourselves – demands something more elevated. And that brings us to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

‘As deaths rose and coronavirus cases multiplied last week, the Primate of All England, spiritual leader of the Established Church, was notably silent. Given we were being warned of a possible death toll that would remove a higher proportion of our population than at any time since the Great War, did the Almighty’s Anglican vicar on earth have something to say? He did not. Perhaps Justin Welby has been saving up a grand pronouncement for the Lord’s Day. If so, it may prove welcome, but would have come far too late…’

It makes a notably deep contrast with Welby’s call a year ago to a national day of prayer over leaving the EU, albeit unaware of the dozens of prophecies in this regard!!

Neil Mackereth: Sanctuary (Britain’s role)

On reading Yinka’s prayer and hearing about unbalanced scales and seeing “an amazing grand cathedral”, I was reminded of Neil Mackereth also having seen one a few months ago. He emailed on 7th January about what had happened whilst writing an article (emphases mine, other than for sub-heading): 

Dear Richard,

This morning, whilst working on a paper about the history of Replacement Theology, I had a word from the Lord. I had returned to the start to add: ‘A lie that is wrapped in many layers of brilliant, scholarly, eloquent, heart-warming, loving, compassionate and seemingly reasonable exegeses, is still a lie,’ when the Lord broke in and said,

“Make it clear: I HAVE NOT ABANDONED MY PEOPLE ISRAEL!”

Time to Address the Scourge of Replacement Theology

The Lord made it clear to me this morning that there is an urgent need to address the very dangerous and deceptive nature of Super-sessionism (Replacement Theology).

I asked: “Why now Lord?”

The Lord showed me a picture of a very large cathedral dominating, as it were, the island of Great Britain. The doors were wide open and people were pouring in, while others were outside showing no interest. I was taken inside and many clergy were there standing in dazzling robes in shafts of light with arms outstretched, ministering to the visitors. In the shadows there were other clergy dressed in black.

“What does this mean, Lord?”

“I am making Great Britain a refuge (a sanctuary for the time of “Jacob’s Trouble”). Do not be judgmental, I am asking the praying remnant of Bible-believing Christians to intercede for those clergy in the shadows, that they will move into the light. The multitude of would-be believers are not to be led astray by clergy whose views of Biblical truth and Kingdom values, particularly in regard of the significance of Israel, are unsafe and unsound. The Holy Spirit will empower you for this task.”

“Why is it so important?”

“Soon the enemies surrounding Israel will intensify their screaming for Israel to be crucified and it BREAKS MY HEART.”

That was it – I am often tempted to add things, but not to this!

Blessings, Neil

Yinka Oyekan: Watch the gates – upside-down laws

Interesting how the Lord’s timing and connections play out!

This morning I received Yinka Oyekan’s permission to publish his Facebook posting of Monday. Also in my in-tray was a notification of the video of pastor Bird’s report upon a Hindu mother and daughter being healed and delivered during his ministry overseas. If you’ve read my PS and link therein to a 2nd and 3rd ‘jigsaw piece’, you’ll appreciate the background between those items and Yinka’s report on upside-down laws, as below.:

THE SCALES ARE UNBALANCED

On Wednesday I took a few minutes to pray in the afternoon and in that prayer time I felt a clear word from heaven;

“Watch the gates, the trickle will become a stream, the stream will become a river.”

I had been praying about the moral decline in the nation, but in that time I had a vision, the Lord pointed to an amazing grand cathedral, and as this image of this beautiful church building flashed before me. the Lord redirected me to pray instead for the moral state of the church. – I then had a vision of the gates of churches opening:

I saw individuals walking out of churches looking confused and the words came to me they are like sheep without a shepherd, harassed and malnourished.

The sense I got was that if the church will repent then the Lord’s mercy will bring a great healing in the land.

Then I saw scales and the justice system, the scales seemed unbalanced and I heard a whisper,

“I have this against your lawmakers, they oppress truth and stifle freedom. Yet they say they uphold truth and defend freedom. If your parliaments will not repent, a greater knot than Brexit will be visited upon you. You will tie yourselves in knots with your own legislation. You will say ‘up’ when it comes to laws governing people’s perception of who they are, but it will feel like ‘down’; you will say ‘down’ but your laws will say ‘up’, you will confuse your citizens with the absurdity of the laws you are passing. These laws will haunt you. Instead of listening to Me, you have chosen your own path. They will be a chain around your neck.You will pay for the harm you have done to your children.”

But I got a sense that the judgement of the Lord is on hold for a season because of a wave of prayer.

I prayed for mercy for all of us especially the mainline denominations and key church streams. But I will watch with great interest to see what is about to happen to those denominations and the legislative parliaments in our Land.

Veronika West: another vision on the ‘corona’ virus

This morning Veronika posted this on her Facebook and in His Kingdom Prophecy’s The Key and the Crown Will Break the Code: AND she hears about the cursing of the nations by the ‘prince of the air’ as shown and heard in printed and spoken media…

In a dream I had two nights ago I heard these words, “THE KEY AND THE CROWN WILL BREAK THE CODE OF THE CROWNED VIRUS”… “…..I DECLARE THE GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY OF THE KING WILL BE LIFTED UP OVER THE NATIONS AND EVERY COUNTERFEIT CROWN WILL BE CAST DOWN”….I will share dream soon…;

But in early hours of the morning I got caught up in a vision/dream where I saw a mighty swirling in the realm of the Spirit over the nations and as I looked at the swirling it was like a whirlwind of heavy dark and white light clouds all intermingled and the winds in the dream were very powerful and, as I looked at this swirling and whirling that was taking place, the Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying,

“WATCH AND PRAY FOE THE DEMONS SPIRITS OF AIR ARE WARRING AGAINST THE DECLARATIONS OF THE SAINTS IN THIS HOUR…”, and as I heard that I saw the words, “DEMONIC MEDIA”…! And I opened my eyes.

Friends, I submit the enemy is using the media in a powerful way to COMPLETELY SATURATE THE ATMOSPHERE WITH FEAR AND TERROR. We must continue pray fervently, and continue releasing decrees of LIFE over the airwaves, many Nations have come under a HEAVY DARK CLOUD OF DEMONIC DECLARATIONS AND ITS HAVING A GREAT EFFECT…!

Let’s Decree; “THE KEY AND CROWN WHEN LIFTED UP OVER THE NATIONS WILL SHIFT THE ATMOSPHERE OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION AND EVERY COUNTERFEIT CROWN AND EVERY DEMONIC VOICE WILL BE CAST DOWN AND SILENCED”.

‘The key and the Crown’….the (CROWN) Kingly/Highpriests’ Mantle carries the (KEY OF DAVID; Isaiah 22:22) Power and Governmental Authority to SHIFT, TRANSFORM, HEAL AND REFORM A NATION…!

“EVERY DEMONIC CROWN WILL BE CAST DOWN IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME”…!

“The key of the house of David
I will lay on his shoulder;
So he shall open, and no one shall shut;
And he shall shut, and no one shall open,”   Isaiah 22:22.

Interesting contrast re. Black History Month (USA)

Opening today’s DT my attention got immediately drawn to Nicholas Kamm’s fine photo and its juxta-positioning against headline on yesterday’s men. It reminds me of the time Reuters cut the video feed as presidential candidate Trump received a standing ovation a black church and praise from an Afro-American bishop in Detroit (details herein).

Caption: ‘African-American religious and political leaders lay their hands on Donald Trump as they pray for him at a White House reception to mark Black History month. The US president vowed to deliver ‘abundant’ equal opportunities for all.’

PS. To clarify in view of Facebook remark, in over 12 years monitoring the incumbent POTUS and working of their administration and policies, the above contrast is notable reading.
