Number 22 (again) in scripture and timing re. SCOTUS and torpedoes

In covering the latest word Thomas Harry received (“Final Call” – It’s Time!) I referred to conspiracy theories and offered my opinion on the importance of Christians being aware of issues and sorting out fact from fiction. We should not be ignorant of satan’s schemes and know how the Lord is working to bring about His righteous and justice, as well as judgement.

My understanding is this should be part of our training for eventually ruling and reigning with Jesus in The Millennium – as well as well-before that event!   In the parable of the ten minas (Luke 19) Jesus told us to “occupy” and use our God-given talents wisely and multiply them, rather than bury them (and our heads) in the sand. 

In fact Jesus’ command to “Occupy until I come!”, is part of ‘foremost Bible teacher’, Bishop of Liverpool, J.C. Ryle’s thesis in his classic Are You Ready For The End Of Time? (published 1867).

Therefore, I’m pleasantly surprised to be alerted by Elaine Venning to yesterday’s notable intercessory word on The Supreme Court of The United States, by her writing,

“22s are back…Apart from the fact that I can witness to the heavy battle over the USA (one of the young lions of Tarshish) and the guardian at present of the critical straits of Hormuz in the Middle East…”

‘God-incidence’ of 11 and 21st (3×7) anniversary of solar eclipse – “Look up for your redemption draws nigh!”

Not bothering to note today’s date, my intended online priority after the days morning tasks was to respond to a reference to number 11’s meaning by Jonathan Hill in his weekend email. BUT after opening my in-tray, what then dropped in from Ben Kay in Plymouth ‘God-incidentally’ highlights ’11’!! “ACE, absolutely brill Ben”, I immediately respond in my seeking his permission to copy; and so he puts it into perspective

“Glad that this email has hit the mark. It was interesting how it came about as I had no intention to write all these things until late last night when I sensed the Lord reminding me about the eclipse and prompting me to write an encouragement. It took a few hours but managed to get it sent out this morning thankfully. I meant to be writing… but sensed this interruption to my plans last night were from the Lord so decided to go with the flow…!”

Let’s ‘get in the flow’ of what the Lord’s indicating through Ben, as told under this title from Luke 21:28 (NB 7×3:7×4):

“LOOK UP…FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH!”

Good Morning,

Normally I simply send out dates and information about prayer meetings (such as the next PRAY UK meeting on 22nd August!)

However, this is a simple encouragement to keep pressing on when you may be feeling the pressure of life… to keep on looking up when you might be feeling down…and a reminder that we are held in the palm of the One who holds the whole world in His hands.

‘…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3 vs 12-14)

Last night, I remembered that today is a special anniversary for those in Devon and Cornwall who, 21 years ago today, witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the 1999 solar eclipse.

Indeed, you may have seen the special marker that was placed near Plymouth Hoe (by the cannons on Madeira Road) to remind us of this special moment. It is in the shape of a cross on the pavement.

‘X’ marks the spot where at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of August 1999, the sun was turned to darkness and the moon turned a blood red colour above Plymouth and the surrounding region, and there followed 2 minutes of eerie darkness in the middle of the day, before the light of the sun broke through once again.

As I look back on this day with a sense of awe, I’m reminded of who it is that not only created the earth, the moon and the sun but actually brought them into alignment and scheduled this special moment at the beginning of time. For no solar eclipse randomly happens but each one was timetabled from the moment of creation.

‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”‘ (Genesis 1:14 KJV emphasis mine)

By all accounts (eg. Wikipedia’s Solar Eclipse of 11th August, 1999), this was a special eclipse. This was ‘one of the most-viewed solar eclipses in the whole of human history’ and the first that could be viewed from the UK since 1927.

As illustrated therein, the total eclipse started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2000km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall. Interestingly, the eclipse then went from here to have an impact on the rest of Europe as well as parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia…2 billion people in all!

There are many prophetic words that have been spoken about the region over the years indicating that God is about to do something special. Given that an eclipse can also be defined as an ‘over-shadowing’, perhaps God’s Spirit is brooding and getting ready to bring forth ‘fullness of life’ in this region as expressed in John 10:10’s  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.

Furthermore, perhaps the precise time and direction of the eclipse over Plymouth and the region indicates that an end-time revival of great magnitude is coming that will have an impact on multitudes throughout the nations.

But if life is tough right now, perhaps we just need to hang in there. In the natural, there is much pressure on a baby in the birthing canal just before it is born.

‘We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.’ (2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9 TLB)

God is in control, even though we may feel everything is out of control.

‘and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose’. (Romans 8 v 28)

Not all things are good…but in all things, we trust God is working things out for our good and birthing His purposes and plans in our lives.

When we’re in the thick of it, sometimes it is hard to see the bigger picture.

Perhaps this recent prophetic word from Veronika West entitled, ‘It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is Ticking‘, will serve as an encouragement to ‘look up’ at this time and keep ‘watching and praying’…

Here’s an excerpt from this relatively short word:

‘So stay watching and praying in these days, as the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow upon the threshing floor of the Nations. Listen and pay close attention! Tick, tock, tick, tock…the sound of destiny’s clock can be heard in the realm of the Spirit. Do you hear it? Are you ready? Are you aligned and rightly positioned? Are you walking in time with My Spirit?

Beloved…See! For this is a kairos time…an appointed time in the earth…a time of divine Shifting, Sifting, Scattering and Separation has surely begun…for the Nations at a divine tipping point are now being Shifted…the wheat and the tares are now being Sifted…Yes!…and the demons of hell are now being Scattered and the goats and sheep Nations are now being Separated…Watch! As the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow forth upon the Harvest fields of the Nations…Beloved, Get ready!!

This follows on from a recent dream Veronika West had in June 2020 (Hourglass of End-time Harvest).

Veronika explains, “This dream came with such an urgency of the times and the need to begin to cry out for the nations of the earth who are in the valley of decision. I believe this dream speaks to the 11th hour. A kairos time in the earth. An appointed time of the End-time Harvest!”

The details of the dream and Veronika’s interpretation take a little longer to read than the above prophetic word…but it is well worth reading and reflecting upon.

The dream concludes with the following words:

“Watch and Pray! For but a little while longer the Golden Revolving Door of The Ages and of Eternal Destiny stands open before the nations. As the days of My Grace and Mercy are poured out upon the nations, watch! For the time is here, for the 11th Hour Harvesters will herald the birthing of a new great awakening on the earth!”

Veronika’s dream reminds me of an encounter I had with God after attending a prayer meeting at Plymouth Christian Centre back in 2012. I was left with a clear sense that we’re living in the closing age of time before Jesus returns for His bride.

Read more about this ’11th hour’ encounter HERE in Why ’12am CRY’? and listen-read-watch RT Kendall explain more about ‘What is the Midnight Cry?’.

Anyhow, this has now turned out to be a much longer email than originally envisaged, so I’ll finish here with a couple of verses encouraging us to rouse to the reality of the time we are living in…

‘Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armour of light. (Romans 13 vs 11-12 AMPC)

Every blessing,

Ben Kay

RB Footnotes:
  1. I wrote Ben, “Not only does your Luke 21:28 header tie in with scripture relating to the night Jesus visited me (and thus the First Sunday of Advent, celebrating His Return – as illus. below), but also and in depth, today’s date of 11th ties in with the details of an email I want to reply to later after returning home.”
  2. Jonathan Hill, author of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, remarks in his recent email upon the Biblical meanings numbers ‘11’ and ‘12’: ‘The number ‘12’ represents the governmental perfection of Israel in the Millennium (12 tribes of Israel etc.). Number ‘11’ precedes ‘12’ and speaks of ‘anticipation’ of Millennium. As part of the Biblical Watch, ‘11’s appearing in global events/signs before the upcoming Millennium may, therefore, be part of this anticipation and signify events which closely precede the Millennium. The 11th hour warning of Armistice Day 1918 (11th hour of 11th day of 11th month) is one such sign’.’
  3. In referring to ’11’ and ’12’ Jonathan has ‘God-incidentally’ connected into Ben’s message on today’s date of 11th as 21st anniversary of the solar equinox at Plymouth – as well as into his calling at 11th hour on 7.9.2012 (see 12am Cry). (Also, 21 = 7 x 3.)
  4. And just as intriguing: I find yesterday’s total number of views on this website is two twelves, ie 1,212. MOREOVER, ‘two twelve’ was the number of my childhood home where that Visitation in 1989 was located!

CONCLUSION: THE LORD IS GETTING OUR ATTENTION – HAS HE GOT YOURS?

Reminder: England’s patron saint slays the dragon!

Thank you Elaine for commenting as follows upon the Visions of 7-headed serpent posting on my Facebook.:

‘Richard did encourage me to share something of this after the post of Toni Arayomi (“This is not the end of the world; this is the distraction”) back around March 19th urging a renewed prayer push for this time – and there were 7 emerging points so now is probably the time to share this – given the reference to the dragon attacking and 7 heads.

‘The London Mint Office this year are promoting a new collector’s gold coin. I received their posting on 19th March, two days after the feast of St Patrick, another of the patron saints of the British Isles and can it be a coincidence that Veronika is from Northern Ireland ?

‘The coin is a gold quarter sovereign and it shows the battle of St George – patron saint of England – going against the fire of the dragon. The coin is called the dragon attacks. It was designed by the descendant of the artist who originally designed the sovereign coins for George III so there is a passing on and honouring of legacy here…and the coin has the year 2020 on it, all significant in itself as we fight for our Christian heritage with a 20-20 vision. [RB posted at 20:20 hours]

‘First, it’s a good graphic of the battle currently raging and of England’s fight-back by the crusading Knight St George…

‘Then the rich Christian symbolism and insights that tumble out of it. Here’s a start as you may see more:-

1. Place of issue = Gibraltar with its famous Rock and our Rock of Christ nb Matthew 16 v 16 – 20 with the Lord’s promise that the gates of Hell cannot prevail against it ( gates are to keep people in or out…) What a spur to press forward!

2. Coin is gold = our faith like gold is tested and refined 1 Peter 1 v 7 Gold always indicates the highest standard in any contest

3. The raising of the shield of faith = the defensive armour of Ephesians 6 especially in protecting against the fiery darts of the enemy (fear of infection & fear of lack) – isn’t this the warfare we’re now called to engage in?

4. The cross etched onto the shield = the prevailing blood of Jesus.
Lift high the Cross – the hymn proclaims – till all the world adore His sacred Name…..

5. Not a trace of defeat or concern in the resolution shown by St George. He’s still thrusting forward and so must we. He’s sure of victory. May we be reassured that in Christ victory is ours.

6. Dei – Gra is short for the Latin ‘Dei Gratia’ meaning’ By the Grace of God’ – our covering! – And also the prize for the nation.

7. Both the Kings responsible, – Henry III appointed George our patron saint and George III commissioned the original depiction of St George on the gold sovereigns – are the third of their name in kingly succession. Such threes point to the Father, Son & Spirit coming together….

‘Lastly St George’s Feast Day falls on 23rd April…..shared with both Shakespeare and
Prince Louis for their birthdays…would I be pushing it to expect victory by/on Saint George’s Day this year??

‘I’m now very excited that we have an invitation to press on in to Victory in readiness for the coming harvest of souls…..this battle will be won through prayer, praise and proclamation of who God is, what He has done and the life He brings. Hallelujah. Amen

In that spirit of prevailing, travailing prayer let us continue in whole-hearted prayer especially in this month of April.’

Through the looking glass: hidden prophecy and the Sign of Jonah — Real Christianity

It is especially encouraging that my writing has inspired one of my American friends, RJ Dawson, to republish his article on the historic mistakes of some Twentieth Century US eschatologists (or ‘escapologists’ – my term for Rapture-ites). RJ comments as follows upon my post of the PM’s speech reflecting Veronika West’s vision of Britain and I’d encourage you to take time to read his original item too and discussion therein:

“Thanks Richard. I’ve been catching up on your site and reading several of your latest posts. I read the full versions of your two posts on the State of the Prophetic. You have gathered quite an extensive collection and it is impressive. I continued through the previous articles. I had read the post about Veronika’s vision earlier in the day along with the comments and thought it was most interesting. It led me to a post I wrote two years ago (1/29/18) which you commented upon and reblogged on your site. It is entitled THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: HIDDEN PROPHECY AND THE SIGN OF JONAH. It is interesting as well that you made mention of prophetic happenings of the last two years.

“I decided to post my article again. Rather than reblog it, I wrote a new one page introduction containing a link to the article at bottom and just now posted it.

“I think you and your readers may like to read this post again in light of current events and compare notes over the subsequent happenings since that time. We live in a new era on so many fronts. I have been blessed to see many astounding spiritual events in my time after joining up with the Lord in 1976. It often takes a long range perspective to properly parse out and analyze spiritual history in order to gain a correct perspective, along with massive amounts of research on many subjects. It is in part why the Lord requires elders.

“Incidentally, to go along with your extensive research, I have recently been reading once again about the latter day Holy Spirit outpouring in America which began in Topeka, Kansas in 1901, moved through Houston, Texas, and then broke forth in Los Angeles in the world-changing Asuza Street Revival which began in 1906 and continued for about three years.

“I’m including the link to my article here for your perusal. Thank you, Richard. Blessings to you, and keep up the great work.”

Dear Readers: Due to several cataclysmic events of “Biblical Proportions” taking place throughout the world at present, and the UK’s recent Brexit from the EU, many Christians are of a mind that we are in the last of the “last days.” The evidence is unconvincing, however, and by itself is nothing more than an […]

The Revival Prophecies – where are we now?

At One Voice, courtesy Carolyn Stewart: me, Andy, Geoff, Lisa, Carolyn, Ali & Rick, Chris.

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.

Paws 4 Thought: ‘God-incidence’ continues onto Boston, its Tea Party and NATO

After drafting the previous post yesterday afternoon, before scheduling it for publication in the evening I checked out Veronika West’s Facebook and found that she, too, had posted a word which connects with Boston, but in USA – so the God-incidents continue! (Although mine refers to emails sent Sunday and opened Monday I’d been unable to blog on it for a couple of days – so timing is much more than circumstantial).

Here’s the sequence as posted 4th Dec.on her Ignite Ireland Ministry Facebook but note it’s in reverse chronological order. Therefore, to get the full gist of her reaction you will need to note and then read the full account last to make sense of it all. SO, over to you to weigh and pray:

At ’16 hrs’ ago, she writes,

‘CHECK THIS OUT just got a wee message from a fellow Prophet in the Lord concerning the Dream/TEA AND TRUMP which I posted; Hi Veronika, Very interesting word!  Peas porridge hot…. is a nursery rhyme first published in 1760!

‘Tea that’s nine days old is very bitter and prophetically, feeding such tea to theses four nations is humiliating – the bitter taste of failure for them but it may be lining up Armageddon as they will want a payback for being humiliated!

‘When receiving this message I researched the date 1760 and look what I found; (Pictures below)

‘Seems like the date 1760 and the Nursery Rhyme about Pea Porridge Hot…makes direct correlation to the timing of AMERICA REVOLUTION AND THE TIMING OF THE BOSTON TEA PARTY…(1760’s-1840’s) A coincidence???…I don’t think so….I believe God is speaking volumes..!’

And 18 hrs ago she publishes this detailed exposition:  

AMERICA…..A DREAM ABOUT….”2020…STRONG BREWED TEA HOT, STRONG BREWED TEA COLD, SOME LIKE STRONG BREWED TEA NINE DAYS OLD….AND TRUMP ELECTED AGAIN”…!

Fulfilled Prophecy #38.2 & 3: Biblical ‘escape’ numbers

Those readers having time and inclination to delve deeper into mathematical aspects of the Bible in its Hebrew and Greek languages may wish to consider an application of Jonathan Hill’s thesis to two globally significant ‘escapes’. These were first published here last November at:

May the Lord open our minds to deeper revelation and comprehension of ‘His numbers’.

Biblical and historical perspectives upon the EU

Being politically non-partisan my motivation is to follow the Lord and assist in bringing His Kingdom on earth. However, in noting prophetical words issued in Nov-Dec 2015 about the EU I began blogging in some depth on this topic as we approached the 2016 Referendum, and especially for checking the accuracy of those words. Subscribers submitted their researches and, together with personal insights, this developed into a full flow of blogs monitoring the on-going situation as best as possible.

In last week’s Prophecy Today UK, Peter Carruthers offers some biblical and historical perspectives on the EU, and reminds us our first priority as citizens is to the Kingdom of God:

Your liberty and freedom come from Magna Carta not the EU

A superb addition to this blog’s collection of posts on Magna Carta and on EU law in David Chapman’s paper on the EU and An Alternative.

Wax Lyricals Blogspot

In the UK an individual has rights laid down since Magna Carta.
This is particularly important when a crime is committed or suspected of being committed. As under the rights laid down from Magna Carta onwards, someone in the UK is deemed innocent until proven guilty. If you are accused of a crime, the onus is on the State to prove your guilt.
The writ of Habeus Corpus prevents the State from imprisoning you without evidence of a crime.
Under the European legal system, they never had a Magna Carta of their own and as such they work under a different assumption than we do, in that you are guilty unless you can prove your innocence.
Thus, the State has the legal authority to imprison you whilst they find the evidence and formulate the case to convict you. The onus is on you to prove your innocence as there is…

Lord Trimble corrects Barnier’s ‘backstop’ blunders! (NI-Eire Prophecy Update #20)

I was interested to read on Sunday EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier’s article with his brief historical recap explaining how he sees the Brexit situation (We will only start work on alternative arrangements if the current deal is ratified). It is summarised as follows on the front page:

In yesterday’s centre page-spread of Editorial and Letters to the Editor, the 7th being from a lead negotiator in the Good Friday Agreement (which led to power-sharing with Irish nationals), and all appearing under this header (emphases mine):

In this battle between Commons and the people, the Government is on the people’s side

‘SIR – Michel Barnier (Comment, September 1) says that the backstop “is not about changing the constitutional status of Northern Ireland. That is none of the EU’s business…” Yet that is precisely what the backstop does do.

‘He goes on to say that “the backstop fully respects the carefully negotiated balance found in that [Belfast / Good Friday] agreement between competing political views and different identities in Northern Ireland”. He is wrong. That is why Unionists oppose it and why the UK Government, having listened and learned, now insists that the backstop must go.

‘It is true that the backstop avoids a hard border on the island of Ireland, but it does so at the expense of the “carefully negotiated balance” in the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement.

‘As it stands, the backstop is not a legally operational solution, as it is not in keeping with the spirit and letter of the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. We need to think again, and fast.

‘Merkel and Macron have listened and realised that something has changed, and are open to alternatives. It is time Mr Barnier listened too.’
