Establishment of ‘New wineskin’ church confirmed by Veronika West prophecy (GPS #45.1)

Further to my reference in the previous post to Catch The Fire in Farnborough, Hants, the senior leader Revd Christopher Bird aims to have its official launch in September. Before then, a ‘thought for the day’ and a weekly teaching from Christopher at 7pm every Sunday is ‘live’ on its Facebook page.

Nina and I were invited to join its second weekly video meeting last Wednesday evening and got online just in time to hear Christopher outlining this new church’s DNA, viz:

    • committed to welcoming the presence of God;
    • being disciples who make disciples, and
    • cultivating a true sense of family.

On the first point he taught about the meaning of and necessity for new wineskins and how this applies to churches, and as an example referred to Moses’ encounter of the Glory of God. On being told to “Lead these people” Moses reacted that he’d not been told whom God would send with him and quoting the Lord, “I know you by name and You have found favour with me” asked, “If you are pleased with me, teach me Your ways so I may know You and continue to find favour with You…” Exodus 33:13 NIV).

The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.”  The rest of the passage is conversation about God’s Presence, and then He showed Moses His Glory!!!  

My finger remained in those pages when we turned to the Gospels but I got impelled to go back and noted Exod 34:10 as being what the Lord is promising us today!

The Covenant Renewed

10 And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do [a]marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.” [NKJV courtesy Biblegateway.com]

SO, this morning I find that Veronika West has published a confirmation on her ministry Facebook(emphases mine):

‘Yesterday I heard the Lord say so clearly,

“WATCH! FOR NEW WINE SKIN MINISTRIES ARE NOW BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH”…!

When I heard the Spirit say those words, I saw a NEW BREED OF MINISTRIES BEING BIRTHED in this time of RESET…,I saw the words ‘DYNAMIC’ AND ‘DUNAMIS POWER.’…THEN I SAW DIVINE EXPLOSIONS WHICH WERE TAKING PLACE IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT….AND THEN I HEARD THE SOUND OF MANY RUSHING WATERS….AND I COULD SEE WELLS OPENING UP ACROSS THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH…!

‘THESE ARE THE WELLS OF REVIVAL…BURSTING FORTH UPON THE NATIONS WITH THE NEW WINE OF THE SPIRIT AND WITH THE DUNAMIS POWER OF GOD…!

‘Ps; I will let you into a conversation I had with a dear friend who shared with me that the Lord had given her the word “FUNNEL” while she was praying…and so she asked if I had some insights…and this was what the Lord showed me;

“The funnel is so interesting, I thought straight away of the NARROW PLACE…a PLACE OF BIRTHING….! Also A TIME WHERE THINGS ARE BEING BROUGHT TO A HEAD/POINT!!!  A place of DIVINE CONVERGENCE…!

‘A Time of FRESH INFILLING, OUTPOURING AND RELEASE. I hear the words, “A SEASON OF DIVINE DECANTING”… gradually pour (wine, port, or another liquid) from one container into another, typically in order to separate out sediment.

‘Often a FUNNEL IS USED TO DECANT WINE….! I believe this is a TIME OF DIVINE SEPARATION, THE SEDIMENT AND IMPURITIES ARE BEING REMOVED….’NO MORE MIXTURE’…EVERYTHING DEFILED AND UNCLEAN MUST BE DONE AWAY WITH.

‘I SEE A HOLY PURITY COMING FORTH IN THE EARTH….A PURE AND UNDEFILED MOVEMENT OF THE SPIRIT THAT WILL REDEFINE MINISTRIES FOREVER…HE IS REPOSITIONING AND REALIGNING THOSE WHO HAVE ‘CLEAN HANDS AND PURE HEARTS’ WITH ‘A NEW WINE SKIN MOVEMENT’ THAT IS BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH.

‘There is a “DIVINE DECANTING TAKING PLACE, A DIVINE EXCHANGE…AND A SUPERNATURAL TRANSFORMATION”…!!

‘I hear the words, “NEW WINESKIN MINISTRIES ARE NOW BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH …!

‘If you have not already read this powerful dream please prayerfully do so, it speaks to the ‘OIL OF HEALING AND THE VINEYARDS OF NEW WINE’;

Visions of spiritual ‘atomic bomb’ confirmed by Emma Stark

I don’t get time to watch video links that folks kindly send me, but this one is highly recommended. So I suggest allocating an hour to watch and consider will be time well spent.

We’re not, admittedly, fans of American shows, BUT this one’s important. It was brought to my attention by a reader and contributor to this blog, Dave Hood, but being extremely busy I got to hear the early minutes only whilst tapping on my keys. Others mentioned it and I chatted about the first speaker’s claims with members of the Prophetic Releasers Fbk group, and so I intended taking time out to watch. But a couple of days later I got spurred into making it a priority, and the way that was done can only be of the Lord..!

In video conference for those interested in a new Catch The Fire church planned for Farnborough, its leader Christopher Bird drew attention to a vision we’d both had, and his wife Rachel added that Emma Stark of Glasgow Prophetic Centre had also had a similar one – and then referred to that video I’d yet to watch!

In fact, what Emma witnessed was the second confirmation in chronological sequence of the original vision a pastor in Reading, Berkshire, had 30 years ago. 

2ND CONFIRMATION OF VISION

Initially, the video caught my attention when Tracy Cook began talking about a dream two months ago about the suspicious source of ‘Chinese Flu’ and the subsequent world-wide Shaking. (I stopped there and didn’t hear the remainder.)

At 31:20 min mark Sid Roth tasks Emma for more of her thoughts on what we can do about the spirit of fear associated with this crisis; but first she qualifies her reply:

“I think a new breed of church is going to emerge and it’s going to be a post-Pentecostal and a post-Charismatic church; it’s not going to look like any version of church that we would say should be our ‘go-to’ aim. In actual fact, we’re going to enter the days of the Church of Holy Power, and that’s what’s going to be established at the end of this Shaking.

“Last year I was on my face in Africa in prayer, and I heard a bomb going off in the spirit realm. (Elsewhere, she describes it as a ‘terrifyingly awesome sound.’)  You know, I grew up in Northern Ireland so I’m used to hearing bombs in the natural. But this was a bomb in the spirit realm, and I said to God, “What have You done?”

He said, “Watch!” and the spray of this heavenly-sent bomb covered the entire globe and the spray started to land on the flesh of men and it started to have an effect on their skin and their skin started to melt and I said to God, “What are You doing” and He said,

“I’m making sure that it is not about one man, it is not about one ministry. I’m making sure that it’s not about ego. I’m making sure that I’m going to shake people so that all that is fleshly in them disintegrates. And on the back of that I will re-fire My Church with Holy Power.”

“And so when we actually come back to regather, we’re going to find churches move in a greater demonstration of the power of God than ever had before, but we have to deal right now with this fear situation…”

Emma proceeded with practical ministry for everyone – which briefly affected her too. To learn more about what had happened in South Africa last May read chapter two of this free book:

I now recall our first visit 6-7 years ago to the church pastor Bird had moved to, not too far from us. (Nina had witnessed the Birds’ prophetic gifting in action at a lady’s house group.) As worship started at that church I suddenly had an open vision of a huge flame of fire shoot out into the hall from above the small band. 

Some may recall Jigsaw Pieces Portray 27th June’s Significance in Prophecy in which I recount my own and pastor Bird’s experiences of a spiritual ‘atom bomb’, but didn’t have the finer details Emma brought. Here are those relevant ‘pieces’…

3RD CONFIRMATION (Pastor’s ‘atomic bomb’)

In referring to that conference at the start of Sunday’s service at FBC, Revd Christopher Bird described it as being like an “atomic bomb” in introducing theology students to the Holy Spirit’s practical, power ministry.  Now, he had my complete attention because I’d blogged about having seen one of those explode in a vision 27 years ago today, as told when inviting readers to February’s One Voice prophecy conference (Bringing the Glorious Word of the Lord to the Nation).

Maybe Chris was referring to my vision of golden rainfall and exploding atomic bomb, because I’d mentioned it in my email inviting him to the One Voice event?

Afterwards therefore, I asked Chris why he’d used those words and he said he’d seen a picture in his morning prayers that developed into an atomic explosion of God’s glory across our nation!  However, he apologised for NOT having read my email yet – and then thanked me because I was confirming what he’d seen that morning! Therefore, it must surely be a God thing!!

1ST CONFIRMATION (My vision and original)

In other words, Chris directly confirmed the vision I’d had as he hadn’t read my account from my first years as a new believer at Tilehurst Free Church (Baptist), which reads:

‘At a very early Pangbourne prayer morning on 27 June 1992 I saw “a waterfall of golden rain which became like a nuclear bomb but in reverse”. When I later told associate pastor David about this he expressed keen interest in view of the vision of liquid fire he’d previously seen over Tilehurst (ie. in 1980s).

‘What particularly impresses me about this picture was that the golden rain (flames?) suddenly condensed into a focal point and there followed a brilliant flash of light. In films of nuclear bombs I’ve seen, the immense flash was followed by fire.

‘Regret I’ve not got any relevant scripture for this but believe it may relate to TFC. Like that widespread ‘rain’, we’ve reverted into a more compact unit, or operation. Perhaps the next phase is for the Lord to ignite us into a powerful instrument, such that His light will go off like a mighty bomb.’

Subsequent considerations connected that vision to meetings held in late 1990s along the Thames Valley and prayers for God’s glory to flow through them into London.  Now however, as emphasised by this Hampshire minister, that glory explosion won’t be localised but will affect the whole nation!  But I was yet to learn of Emma’s ‘bomb’…

Veronika West confirmation of ’emerge’ vision (GPS #43.2)

Simultaneously and by serendipity with my post on the 2004 vision of the emerging Rock of Christ and newspaper op-ed echoing the word I heard, and Andrea William’s newsletter’s main highlight on the ‘Rock‘, another confirmation came that very morning in what Veronika West published on her Facebook. NB: my post had been written on Thursday but I decided, or maybe the Lord ‘nudged’ me, to set auto-publication for 6.00am the next day, Friday.

Here’s Veronika, as copied from her Fb and from His Kingdom Prophecy:

“IT’S TIME TO…’EMERGE AND SEE’…THAT THE LORD IS GOOD IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING…”

As I woke up this morning I saw this Word come up before me, ‘EMERGE and SEE’.

I then heard the word “emerge-n-cy” and I saw this Word being written over many nations of the earth.

Then I heard the Spirit say,
“Watch! As signs, wonders and miracles will begin to ‘emerge and many eyes will see’ My Glory arise as never before.

“So Watch and Pray… As a righteous remnant will emerge and many will see….

“And many will say, ‘from contagious to supernatural catalyst, from outbreak to outpouring and revival, from isolation to greater unity, integration and kingdom advancement, from fear to an unbridled boldness, freedom and victory and from death to resurrection power and new life, for surely the attacks and the assignments of the enemy which sought to rob, kill and destroy have now been reversed and turned for greater kingdom increase, influence and impact in the nations’!”

I Declare: March 2020 will be, ”A gateway month for a greater manifestation and demonstration of his glory in the lives of many.”

I Declare: Sudden and swift supernatural miracles and deliverances as ungodly alliances and even generational curses are bound and broken. The words “freedom and breakthrough” will be on the lips of many.

I Decree and Declare: A divine and supernatural emerge-and-see over the nations. The Glory of The LORD has risen upon the Sons of God and all nations will be drawn to their rising!

Blessings to you all.

Leisa Ebere: global preparation-time

Again we consider the imminent manifestation of the harvest of the wheat and tares, with its direct relevance to my calling to write on End-times (as herein), as well as our taking a Stand upon the Rock of Christ emerging in Britain (2004 open vision).  Revival? Not yet!

As for all prophetical postings, this is to be weighed with the Lord and against His Word.

Leisa’s email arrived soon after booting up my pc today, and wherein she writes:  ‘Early this morning, the Lord gave me clarification in regards to the international issues that are presently challenging the Earth, and I wanted to share His Words with you and the readers:

THE GLOBAL PREPARATION-TIME PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 27/02/20

“Pride goes before destruction,” says the Lord, “and I am allowing a scattering of seeds of disease and calamity to come upon the proud and the haughty, across the nations of the earth who torment and scoff at the innocent and those that call upon My Name. For my Sovereign Hand shall bring protection to My Faithful Ones, and shall block the actions of the evil one as I sweep many of this wicked generation away in this next season. For the 2020’s shall not be a global outpouring of My Spirit, as many suppose, but rather a clearing out of evil and a making room for the positioning of My Remnant, with lightening bursts of My Spirit reflecting My Power released to those who want to serve me with their whole hearts. I am sifting the wheat from the chaff,” says the Lord, “and it is time to stand up and be counted in these last days, and become ready for the harvest. I have released angels with mighty sickles and they are digging deep into the Earth. For the time of preparation is at hand,” says The Lord of Hosts. “Heed My Voice!”

Blessings, Leisa Ebere

Declaration for the spiritual harvest

Click/tap image for link to Passion For The Nation and previous declarations

By Suzanne Ferrett of Passion for the Nation on Monday February 17th, 2020

HARVEST

‘Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when the ploughman shall overtake the reaper’ (Amos 9:13)

We declare across this land, this is the day of revival and awakening, and we thank God for all those who have already come to know Him in this season, for the miracles that have taken place and the resources already released. Now, in the Name of Jesus, we speak increase and multiplication and we call God’s people into a revelation of the openness upon the land.

We come into agreement with God’s word that we are anointed...“to preach good tidings to the poor … to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” 

In Jesus’ Name, we call forth salvations, we call forth Jesus-centred conversations, we call forth prophetic encounters, dreams and visions, and we declare our nation will not miss the day of His visitation. (Isaiah 61:1)

Even as God is releasing many ministries within the church, we declare this is a new season of the Evangelist and we call forth those who will speak to individuals and we call forth those who will speak to the crowds. We declare God’s people will speak His word with fresh faith, authenticity, compassion and urgency, as the revelation of His justice, mercy and goodness increases upon them; that God’s word will go out with boldness and clarity, yet sensitivity and wisdom, and the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ be heard.

We declare that grace and truth come through Jesus Christ and we speak the revelation of Jesus into the lives of individuals, families, communities and all cultures in our land.

Suzanne Ferrett.

The Revival Prophecies – where are we now?

THE REVIVAL PROPHECIES

Britain’s Christians have heard promises of future revival coming to the nation for generations, yet the long wait continues.

Are we now to give up hoping for a turnaround in church decline?

Can we really expect a revival to come suddenly, as it did in 1904-1905 in Wales, when hundreds of thousands were saved in a few years, swelling the congregations and igniting other revivals worldwide

The 20th-Century church in Britain saw a steady decline with membership as a proportion of the population shrinking ever decade since World War I. In a mere generation, Britain went from being a missionary sending nation to a mission-field. Foreign evangelists such as Billy Graham and Louis Palau took up the mantle for converting the nation through stadium evangelism. Even so, many foreign evangelists were not always received whole-heartedly by the British churches, who had failed to raise up soul winners themselves. It is noted that by international standards Britain had also been lagging behind other English speaking nations, by failing to encourage the voices of prophets. We are beginning to catch up in recent years, but as with evangelism owe much to the influence of other nations.

For many, it goes against the grain to assume that today’s prophecy can take longer than a generation to be completed. Most expect prophecies to unfold in their lifetime or soon after. The key points from prophecies below show that although incomplete, these words are already in advanced progress to being fulfilled. This is an indication that the prophesied harvest of souls cannot be too far off.

Veronika West: NEW E-R-A = Expect Radical Advancement

LOVE this word as it directly relates to my hearing “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!” upon opening my Bible to check the wheat and tares parable and which kick-started my writing on End-times 11 years ago, as told in The Endgame is now in play.:

NEW E•R•A….”EXPECT•RADICAL•ADVANCEMENT OF MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”..says God

Today while worshipping the King of Glory I heard the Spirit say this…

”DAUGHTER IN THIS NEW ERA THERE SHALL BE A GREATER OUTPOURING OF MY GLORY WHICH WILL BRING ABOUT A DIVINE DISTINCTION WITHIN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WATCH! AS A GREAT SEPARATION WILL TAKE PLACE, WHEAT AND CHAFF SHALL BE SIFTED AS MY KINGDOM ADVANCES WITH GREATER ACCELERATION AND MOMENTUM IN THE DAYS AHEAD, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU THIS NEW ERA SHALL TURN THE NATIONS UPSIDE-DOWN AND INSIDE-OUT…”, as I heard those words I saw the letters E•R•A and I heard the Spirit say, “ERA… EXPECT•RADICAL•ADVANCEMENT OF MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”

Then I heard the sound of the letter ‘E’ and then the Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying, “MY ECCLESIA SHALL ARISE AND SHINE WITH GREATER EXPECTATION WHICH WILL BRING TO BIRTH EVEN GREATER MANIFESTATIONS OF MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS…WATCH AND PRAY MY BELOVED!…FOR THIS WILL BE AN ERA OF THE EXTREME, THE EXTRAORDINARY AND EVEN GREATER EXPLOITS, MY KINGDOM SHALL EXPAND AND INCREASE, MANY SHALL RECEIVE SUPERNATURAL ELEVATION, DIVINE EXCHANGES AND DEEPER ENCOUNTERS WITH MY GLORY. HA! GET READY…FOR GREATER DEMONIC EXPOSURES WILL BE SEEN BOTH IN MY HOUSE AND THE HOUSES OF GOVERNMENT, SUDDEN AND SEVERE EARTHQUAKES AND ERUPTIONS BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND NATURALLY…SHALL TAKE PLACE THAT WILL SHAKE AND SHIFT THE NATIONS AND BRING MANY TO THEIR KNEES…”,

Then I heard the sound of the letter ‘R’ echo in the realm of the Spirit, and I heard these words, “REPENTANCE AND THE RETURNING OF THE PRODIGALS, RESTORATION, RECOMPENSE AND KINGDOM REFORMATION SHALL BE SEEN, EVEN GREATER REVELATION AND VISION SHALL BE RELEASED TO THE SURRENDERED ONES, GREATER RICHES AND WEALTH TRANSFER SHALL BREAK THE STRANGLEHOLD OF LACK AND A POVERTY MINDSET. WATCH! BELOVED AS A MIGHTY REMNANT WILL RISE IN RADICAL OBEDIENCE AND SACRIFICE PREPARED AND EMPOWERED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS, WATCH AND STAY VIGILANT IN THIS HOUR…AS DIVINE RETRIBUTION AND THE RULE AND REIGN OF MY RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENTS AND JUSTICE IS EXECUTED IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, BUT! FEAR NOT AS REFORMATION AND REVIVAL SPRINGS FORTH AND DIVINE REVERSALS AND SEVEN-FOLD RESTITUTION COMES TO THOSE WHO WALK UPRIGHTLY….”,

Then I saw the letter ‘A’ in the realm of the Spirit and the Spirit of Lord said, “LISTEN! FOR THE SOUND OF MY TRUMPET HERALDS A GREAT AWAKENING IN THE EARTH AS MY END-TIME ARMY ARISES WITH GREATER APOSTOLIC AND PROPHETIC POWER AND AUTHORITY TO SHIFT AND RESHAPE MANY NATIONS, SEE! FOR A DIVINE ACCELERATION WILL BE UPON THE LIPS OF MY PEOPLE AS I TAKE THEM HIGHER AND DEEPER, DAUGHTER…WATCH! AS THE SECRET PLACE BECOMES AN EVEN THINNER PLACE AS MANY WILL BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE GREATER ANGELIC VISITATIONS, AND IN AWE THEIR MOUTHS SHALL BE OPENED WIDE I SHALL FILL THEM WITH ROYAL ANNOUNCEMENTS AND DECREES THAT WILL CARRY THE WEIGHT OF MY GLORY UPON THEM. EVEN NOW THERE IS A HOLY HUNGERING AND THIRSTING THAT IS INVADING THE ATMOSPHERE CREATING A TIPPING POINT FOR GREATER BREAKTHROUGH, SET-BACKS SHALL BECOME DIVINE SET-UPS, A LAUNCHING-PAD TO EVEN GREATER KINGDOM ADVENTURES AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT. YES! MY HAND NOW MOVES TO BRING FORTH DIVINE CONNECTIONS AND STRATEGIC APPOINTMENTS FOR A GREATER KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT IS NOW TAKING PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”…!

Leisa Ebere: Angelic warning of demonic hindrances

Last Sunday Leisa informed me she’d had a heavenly visitor referring to reactions of the anti-democrats and demonic spirits reported in the media, and which confirms Frank Sui writing about a Jezebelic onslaught, as well as covered here in the Malvern Mashal.

She writes,  “Despite everyone’s jubilation about Boris Johnson and the conservatives being elected recently, it is important we realise the great responsibility we now have to watch and pray over our nation and I had an angelic visitation today, conveying that very message:”

ANGELIC WARNING 

given to Leisa Ebere on 15th December 2019

I saw an angelic messenger riding upon a fast steed, with a warning being given to the Kingdom Remnant within the UK, “That a dark wind of malicious and malcontented voices are arising out of the South, as the enemy seeks to stir up a tidal wave of hindrances against the Lord’s Purposes.”

He also spoke his message and said: “There are rooted animosities from days gone by that have undermined all trust between Germany and the UK, and these demonic hordes have caused much brokenness and unrest, and this shall continue throughout Brexit negotiations and beyond. He further urgently warned that the Lord’s People must declare peace and love their enemies, despite the roots of iniquity that lie deep within the hearts and minds of people in the EU countries and the UK.” For he declared, “True Discernment must be utilised and love not hate shown for hatred has no place in God’s Kingdom.”

He said: “Let there be intercessors and prophetic seers to see and understand trouble arising from prevailing winds of the south” and added: “The Lord is cleansing the UK and the people within it so that they may be advocates of change, as transformation stampedes across the nations of the Earth.” He declared: “This is not a breaking away, but a remolding of dry and hardened clay and the Lord of Hosts is adding the water of His Spirit for all nations, as His revival is close at hand.”

Leisa Ebere: the Jaguar Prophecy – a call to pray for business people and future of UK

After I went offline for the long weekend Leisa emailed two prophetic words, the first of which follows below.

Leisa writes, “With the UK Election looming, I thought it best to release to you what the Lord has shown me this week. Bless you, Leisa Ebere

JAGUAR PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 4th December 2019

I saw a Jaguar run across an election polling station and I heard the Lord say, “The ones this animal represents and others like them, shall have heavy influence on the fate of the United Kingdom in the days ahead. Pray for the hearts of the businessmen and women of this nation to be changed,” instructs the Lord. “For if they move against My Sovereign Will, then I will appoint their resources and influence to others.” says the Living God. ‘For I am moulding and shaping this nation to be a conduit of My Spirit and in 2020 you shall see changes like you have never known before.”

“Out of the mouths of babes” – Stephen Powell on rapper Kanye West’s example to preachers

Again, what ‘coincidental’ timing! Just after posting the previous I noticed a new entry on Prophetic Releasers community group sharing this by Stephen Powell:

FROM THE MOUTHS OF BABES: KANYE’S SURPRISING EXAMPLE TO PREACHERS IN THE WEST

(Matt.21:12-17)
12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ”
14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant
16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have perfected praise’?”
17 Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there. Continue reading

Revd Dr Clifford Hill on Brexit: great shaking yet a door of hope

I’m particularly drawn to Dr Hill’s reminder of the Shaking of Nations prophesied in 1986 (unknown to me but Hebrews 12:27 was opened to me 10 years later) in his editorial to Prophecy Today UK, and grateful for ongoing permission to republish. Here’s Dr Hill on the causes of the current crisis:

A DOOR OF HOPE

What next for beleaguered Britain?

So Boris has got a deal! But the big question facing Christians in Britain is this – what is God saying to us? Is the hand of God inexorably guiding the nation towards a no deal outcome? Amazingly, Prime Minister Johnson has secured a deal with the EU which everyone said was impossible. But so did Mrs May last year! And her deal was firmly rejected by Parliament. Surely, Boris must know that whatever he presents to our rebellious Parliament on ‘Super-Saturday’ will have very little chance of being given the approval of the majority of our MPs. Even if the Archangel Gabriel appeared with a divinely approved deal, written in Heaven, it would be thrown out by this Parliament!

Having written that, I am well aware that I may have to eat my own words if something amazing happens and the new deal is overwhelmingly approved by Parliament. If that does happen, I would seriously question the value of the deal, as I have no confidence that this Parliament will do anything righteous, or that anything agreed with the European Union will be in the best interests of Britain.

I firmly believe that leaving with no deal is far better than leaving with a bad deal that keeps us partially tied to the EU. We need a clean break so that we have the opportunity to recalibrate all our relationships with God and with others.

Sovereignty of God

A vision of radical changes within Parliament

Thank you to Matthew Holman (HearYourWayBristol) for kindly permitting publication of what he posted today in Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival (Facebook group). As with all words and visions, it’s for your weighing with the Lord and scripture:

‘I had a vision of the Houses of Parliament. A bell was being rung from inside and it made everyone stop and pay attention – like a fire alarm but a traditional hand rung bell mounted on the wall. People were coming from all over to gather around Parliament. Even the Thames stopped flowing!

‘Then as the bell was still ringing, and the sound was reverberating the whole inside of the buildings, a tannoy-style speaker appeared from the clouds and God was speaking over Parliament (and therefore the nation) and all who had gathered could hear His voice.

‘I then heard the words “Even the stones shall cry out” and I saw in the spirit the very stones of the building proclaiming God’s truths [Footnote refers: RB]. But also I saw that they knew everything historic that had taken place in the buildings of Parliament – seen and unseen, and that their knowledge was released. I then got the scripture within Luke 19 (vv 39-40):

And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

‘From this I saw the voices – of those who know who they are in Christ – rising up. They walked into the chambers and began to worship, whilst those who had their own agendas and love of money were kept in the hallways shut behind the big doors.

‘I then had the scripture: “And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous”. I saw vast sums of money and gold laid on the central table (like an altar) and the fire of heaven came down and melted and refined the money and gold. As it was purified and turned liquid it went out into the nation like veins – like a golden river. It stretched to all parts of the UK. And also went into the walls of Parliament as like a declaration of re-purpose.

‘At this time I saw a hit in the stock market – that God was showing his authority over money and that money is a mere tool for the advancement of his Kingdom and for the equipping of saints. I then heard the words, “What would those who rely on money rely on when there is none?” I felt an invitation into God’s love for those who don’t know what it is to rely on God as a good Father. I saw the power of the love of money being broken.

‘Then as the golden river was flowing out there was an earthquake in the nation that shook ALL foundations. The ground began to split open and those foundations were revealed. I then heard the words “We will build on ancient foundations” I saw pillars being revealed from under the earth.

‘I saw those things that had been built on false foundations collapse into the voids – churches included. I saw those who had built already on ancient foundations stood strong! I then felt like the reaction to this would be for those on the strong foundations to say to those in the void “I told you so”, but I then saw this turn into an invitation once again. I saw people reaching their hands into the void to help people up onto their foundations and as they did, instead of saying “I told you so”, they were saying “God loves you so” – God was inviting people to join in the land that they did not labour for. I saw a rich blessing fall over the nation when those in Christ and who have built on ancient foundations of God’s truths reached out in love to those who had fallen into the voids.

‘The whole vision felt like a re-calibration. That the shaking and the fall of the power of money is just an invitation to come into love. To be part of the Gospel. To know worth, identity and destiny. I saw a national revival break out as peoples’ priorities changed and their love of money broke and they saw what it is to rely fully on God. We have an invitation to rebuild like never before. I feel that Christian voices will be risen up in parliament and that people will know the fear of the Lord in that place. I see huge resources for the sectors that work with the most vulnerable and those on the fringes and unseen.

‘We must pray and ask God for his perspective. That chaos is only chaos when we focus on the situation rather than God’s voice. That his voice brings everything to heavenly order.

‘Will you have your ear to the ground to hear it coming? Listen out for the bell ringing in Parliament.

‘I heard Father give this scripture as a summary: Matthew 6: 19-33

‘Blessings x’

Footnote: Gillan Scott blogs ‘…It’s not just the architecture that evokes a strong sense of the Christian heritage that is bound up in the heart of this place.  The Bible is literally at the centre of the Houses of Parliament. Inscribed into the stone floor of the central lobby are the words from Psalm 127 written in Latin, ‘Unless the Lord builds the house its builders labour in vain.’  – God is in the House(s).
