Fire in the cathedral – a sign?

Nicholas brings some poignant reflections on the Scriptures and history before we consider three prophecies and a ‘coincidental’ fire in Jerusalem at the Al-Aqsa mosque!

All Along the Watchtower

Many years ago, I had the privilege to visit Notre Dame de Paris. It was an awe-inspiring sight, a triumph of Gothic architecture. Beloved by millions, it stood as an icon of France and France’s Catholic heritage. Now ravaged by fire, it will be rebuilt, ostensibly as a sign of France’s resilience and commitment to cultural excellence.

There is a deeper problem here, symbolised by the fire in the cathedral – France’s anti-religious secularism and ethno-political turmoil. France has turned its back on God. The presence of Christians from a variety of denominations in France does not significantly alter the big picture of apostasy and decay.

Lest the reader think my judgment is harsh, I would say that I hold much the same view of the United Kingdom at present and speak as someone with partially French blood. I love France and the UK, but I do not love what…

An Ideal Parliament

This post bridging ‘the Pond’ brings an informative, brief discussion that well serves my coverage (GPS#12) of the historical background to the internationally famed document limiting a sovereign’s ‘divine rights’, as well as its proposed Spiritual Magna Carta

All Along the Watchtower

The Westminster Parliament appears to be tearing itself apart. The current turmoil resembles the time before party whips came to play the role they do today. In the old days, parties were not stable: a leader could not depend on the votes of other MPs and Lords as a matter of course. Much of the time, a member of the legislature had to be persuaded or cajoled into voting in favour of a proposal.

NEO ran a post at his blog, yesterday, commemorating George Washington. The post is well worth a read. In particular, I was struck by George Washington’s dislike for political parties (especially on the basis of geographical divisions). He knew history well, and he was a true patriot. He desired that the people would be united and that faction would not lead to tyranny. Struggles, he contended, can lead to people placing their faith in one man:…

The future is now: from predicted Church decline to the predicted Great Awakening

RJ’s interesting conclusions are worth keeping in mind because of the timing of this and consternation arising from Clifford Hill’s comments about Wembley Day of Prayer.

Real Christianity

Real Christianity

       

      I began the early research of Real Christianity, The Nature of the Church, in 1992. The Lord told me then what the future would be. That future is now coming to pass.

.

       Mine was a voice that got it right. The book is a record from the past correctly foreseeing the future. Though soundly rejected at the time, including by the leadership of my own fellowship that I was dutifully supporting per the Lord’s will, the Lord revealed to me why the disintegration of traditional Christianity in America would not only continue but accelerate. If you’re in to prophecy and possibly followed the major prophecy teachers of that time who never saw the Great Awakening coming, the following passage from my book may interest you. It was originally drafted almost twenty-five years ago:

Spiritual nature of Brexit vs. EU battle now exposed to the world

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

Last night’s news of Donald Tusk’s outburst against Great Britain makes for an unusual follow-up to a reader’s recent enquiry about decrees and declarations. Therefore, I can but conclude:

As President of the European Council and speaking in his official capacity in a conference with the Irish Prime Minster in Brussels yesterday, Donald Tusk spoke out and publicly promulgated an utterly despicable curse from his written notes (ie. a declaration made from a decree), not only upon those who promoted Brexit without having made safe plans for its completion but also and by implication upon every British citizen who voted to leave the E.U.!

(I’d thought to insert a copy of his ‘tweet’ here, but that would reiterate its impudence.)

THE GLOVES ARE NOW OFF! THE EU’s FALL DRAWS NIGH!

Resorting to slander shows the EU’s now lost the ‘discussion’ – lock, stock and barrel. Moreover, they confirm the real spiritual nature of the current Battle for Britain.

Prophetic words and visions of the demonic evil behind today’s Tower of Babel are now demonstrably accurate and fully vindicated by this exposure, not only of its President’s heart but also of this totalitarian institution’s leadership. (Read Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next EU?? and the Fulfilled Prophecies #10 sequence.)

Clearly, the Lord is allowing this outrage to inform the British public of the real, spiritual nature of the European Union that underpins its legal, political and financial structure.

What’s more, I believe the curse is, or even has been, reversed as foretold in two separate words of prophecy that were brought last year. I’ll reiterate those at the end of this two-part blog.

Tusk’s outburst – endorsed by EU Parliament’s Negotiator – demonstrates Britain’s best interests are served by being completely separate from the EU – without any Irish ‘backstop’!

Today’s report from Brexit Central upon the event reminds us the EU is fundamentally anti-democratic – and corrects the EC President’s faulty memory:

‘What an extraordinary day it was in Brussels yesterday. Leading most of the papers today are the incendiary remarks made by European Council President Donald Tusk yesterday at a press conference alongside Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. At the end of a relatively short statement, Tusk opined:

“By the way, I’ve been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.”

‘Never mind the deeply undiplomatic nature of the comment which unsurprisingly drew much criticism, it was also totally untrue. While David Cameron and George Osborne may have irresponsibly refused to allow the civil service to prepare for the eventuality of a Leave vote in advance of the referendum, plans were drawn up by others. As Dr Lee Rotherham reminded us here (Change or Go, dispels pernicious myth no work done on Brexit), on BrexitCentral in 2016, there was Change, or Go – the seminal publication from Business for Britain which ran to more than 1,000 pages. Its subtitle, “How Britain would gain influence and prosper outside an unreformed EU”, provides the clue to it being exactly what Tusk claims did not exist. Or there was the 2014 publication, Cutting the Gordian knot: A Road Map for British Exit from the European Union, written by Rory Broomfield and Iain Murray. There were many others too.

‘There’s no way that this was an off the cuff intervention from Tusk. It was clearly planned. If you watch him making the remarks on our video, you can see him referring to written notes while he said it. And he then happily tweeted he words out afterwards (prompting an equally inappropriate response from MEP Guy Verhofstadt, which makes our Tweet of the Day below).

‘And then to rub salt into the wound, at the end of the press conference, Varadkar is caught saying: “They’ll give you terrible trouble in the British press for that”, to which Tusk replies: “Yes, I know” and laughs. What on earth was he thinking???

‘Moreover, many of us had already been offended by some of the earlier contents of Tusk’s short statement. Aside from the contradiction of declaring the Withdrawal Agreement “not open for re-negotiation” while demanding that Theresa May offer a “suggestion on how to end the impasse”, the former Polish Prime Minister also reminded us of the EU’s arrogant attitude to referendums which deliver the “wrong” answer.

‘Having claimed that “a very great number of people in the UK… wish for a reversal of this decision” to leave the EU, he lamented: “The pro-Brexit stance of the UK Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition rules out this question… Today, there is no political force and no effective leadership for Remain”.

‘Some might say that the definitive result of the 2016 referendum rules out a reversal of the said decision. Call me old-fashioned, but when a parliament organises a referendum to ask the people a question, is it not duty bound to implement the answer it is given? But of course, that’s not the EU’s way of doing things. When Denmark rejected the Maastricht Treaty in a 1992 referendum, they had to vote again in order to approve it. It was the same with Ireland and their Nice Treaty referendum in 2001. And when the French and Dutch electorates rejected the European Constitution in 2005, it was merely cosmetically repackaged as the Lisbon Treaty. And when the Irish rejected that in 2008, they had to vote again in order to give Brussels the answer it required. All a salutary reminder that the EU is not so much undemocratic as anti-democratic.

‘Back to yesterday’s events and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also repeated that the Withdrawal Agreement is the “only deal possible” and “not open for renegotiation”. Speaking alongside Varadkar after his meeting with the Taoiseach, Juncker specifically rejected the will of the House of Commons as set out through the Brady amendment when he declared that “alternative arrangements” could “never replace the backstop”. And in order to ensure Tusk did not enjoy a monopoly on offending we Brits, a picture emerged of Juncker and Varadkar posing with a large novelty “Thank You from Ireland” card evidently sent to the Commission President, with Juncker’s office letting it be known that it contained the message “Britain does not care about peace in Ireland”.

‘All of yesterday’s antics were all the more extraordinary because of their timing: today Theresa May is heading to Brussels for meetings with Messrs Tusk, Juncker and Verhofstadt on the back of last week’s Commons votes and the Whitehall talks that have been considering alternative arrangements to the backstop.’

Further Reading:

The Telegraph’s international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard’s Parliament Beware: the Backstop and EU Political Declaration are a double-trap makes essential reading for its historical background:

‘BE very wary of any EU codicil, protocol, or soft law memorandum offering assurances on the Irish backstop. Either it safeguards the UK’s sovereign prerogatives and free agency, or it locks the country into a perpetual legal arrangement as a regulatory captive without voting rights. It is one or the other. No fuzzy compromise on this legal point can exist.

‘The 1713 Treaty of Utrecht still holds force – to the eternal irritation of Madrid – because it is extremely difficult to abrogate. “You cannot get out treaties unless there is a ‘denunciation clause’ or by mutual agreement,” said Lorand Bartels, a law don at Cambridge.

‘NAFTA, NATO, or the WTO, all have escape clauses. That is why Donald Trump can threaten to tear up everything. The Withdrawal Agreement does not. It is sui generis. (ie one of a kind)

‘No large country in modern peacetime history has ever signed a treaty document of this kind yielding fundamental sovereign powers for ever. The insolvent king of Spain agreed to the Treaty of Utrecht and the loss of Gibraltar only because he had been defeated in the War of Spanish Succession.

‘We already have the hard lesson of the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, the so-called Christmas tree of rights dismissed at first by one Europe minister (Keith Vaz) as “no more binding than the Beano or the Sun”.

‘The Lisbon Treaty later gave the Charter legal force under the European Court (ECJ). This created a clutch of aspirational economic and social rights that clash with Common Law practice…’

‘Brussels needs to do something because risks are rising. Europe is suddenly in a rougher predicament than anybody expected, hence Mr Tusk’s talk of dispatching Brexiteers to a “special place in Hell”.

‘The eurozone is near recession with no monetary or fiscal defences. It faces the escalating risk of an Italian debt crisis spreading to French and German banks. A no-deal Brexit has become very dangerous for the EU as well…

‘Lest we forget, the backstop is not the only landmine in the withdrawal package. The supposedly non-binding Political Declaration keeps the UK subject to the Acquis on the environment, labour law, taxation, competition, and state aid. Non-regression clauses make this law impossible to repeal even where its manifestly harmful.

‘Paragraph 132 states that the ECJ will have the final say on disputes. This extends the legal capture of the Withdrawal Agreement into the future relationship. Paragraph 135 establishes a punishment mechanism, with fines for breaches of the accord. It sets in train future fishing quotas…’

UK Situation Summary #2 – Suzanne Ferrett on this season of opportunity for Christians

Suzzanne Ferrett kindly permits me to republish this from Passion For The Nation. She posted it as an informal chat on the message she’s been teaching for the past couple of years.  Yet it’s timely in my own considerations of prophecy and politics arising out of a personal challenge to my referring in Cranmer to the Lord’s mind on Britain and the EU. Your attention is drawn to Suzanne’s outlining differences between Britain and Europe and to our laws in particular, further details of which may be found in two footnotes.: 

I thought with all the confusion and the noise of the challenges in our nation right now, It would be good for me to explain why I believe this is a season of huge opportunity for the Body of Christ.  Let me take a moment to explain why.

I am aware that even with the promises of God that we stand on the brink of huge revival, many are still struggling.

Background

My whole journey with praying and speaking into government, began with a number of revelations God gave me around 2015 and the beginning of 2016, when I moved with my husband to Windsor in Berkshire, not long before the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta.  At that time, with several other ministers, we called a Convocation to celebrate this document, which had never been overtly successful, yet had shaped our nation and the nations for 800 years.

During that time, God showed me how the roots of our nation, Government, justice system, democracy, institutions and way of life are based through the Magna Carta on Christian principles and foundations. The Magna Carta itself was not totally original, but drew on the Law Code of King Alfred, a Christian who is often called the first King of England, although that title should really go to his grandson.

At that time, as we looked backwards to celebrate the past, I felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit to look towards the future, and we released a decree about the rising up of a governmental army, who would through their prayers govern in the spiritual realm above natural government. At that time, I felt God said, what we “have seen in the past of Godliness in this nation is only a shadow of what is possible in the future as His people rise up and take their place.”

Around that time, I also felt there would be a void in government and that would be the time when the Ecclesia would arise!  (In my book Declarations to Change a Nation – published 2016)

About a month later, in July 2015 God spoke to me clearly in the words of a poem:

‘It’s the day of clash of Empires,
It’s the Day of the Clash of Sounds,
It’s the Day of the Clash of Spirits
as they seek to take the ground,
The no-man’s land of England will become a Battleground,
The forces are preparing, The swords are being ground,
I’m calling to my church now to listen to the sound.’

This speaks of a spiritual battle in the nation, which is affecting many areas of society, and right now is sitting very squarely on our Government.

It is very clear from the gospels, that Jesus was really concerned that the “yeast of the Pharisees, Sadducees and Herodians” did not infect His church. Those three groups, the religious, the wealthy and the political, have historically held the power in many nations, and the key word is power – which is so often, the DNA of the world systems.

What is God doing?

I believe God is shaking nations, because it is the beginning of a new era.  When things are stable, change is difficult, but great shaking has the capacity to bring great change, therefore as everything moves, there is room for the establishment of something new – which right now, for simplicity, I will call the Government of the Kingdom of God.

Resounding above all the noise is the Kingdom call. A day for the Kingdom to come in all its glory and fullness, embracing the call for salvation, but also bringing righteousness, mercy, truth and justice to the earth. The DNA of God’s Kingdom is very different from the world’s systems and kingdoms, and yes, it is a Spiritual Kingdom, but it will touch and affect every part of society.

Jesus gave the coming of the Kingdom huge priority: pray “Kingdom Come” and “Seek first the Kingdom of God.”

The danger is that as everything shifts and moves, and changes take place, voids open up, and there is confusion and fear. But if God’s people will see from His perspective and stand in the assurance of His covenant and His blessings, we are those who have the potential to fill those voids with everything from love and hope, to the righteousness and justice of the Kingdom. Otherwise, something else will fill those spaces.

I believe what we are seeing in the shaking around Brexit, is part of the shift God is seeking to bring. The roots of Europe are different from ours. Their spiritual heritage is different, more based on the Roman model and influenced by Enlightenment thinking, and they have a different view of democracy.

The nations which hold the same values as ours, from the freedom of choice and the value of life, to the value of the individual, are those whose heritage roots back to the UK and to our political system.

What’s Unique about our Democratic System

It is because of the early roots through the Magna Carta and back to King Alfred 200 years before it, that our democracy is founded on the truth that there is a Higher Authority – God the Judge, the Lawgiver and the King. It means there are absolute truths which underpin everything else.

This is the foundation which has made us the nation envied around the world; the freedoms we have enjoyed, the expectation of truth and honesty, the value put upon life and the freedom of religious belief and more. The nations which were part of, or influenced by the British Empire, for all its faults, can still be identified by a similar, if eroding value system and interestingly, are also the only nations which carry all these values.

Other democracies are different.  I remember being taught at school that Democracy of itself carries the seeds of its own destruction. Without the understanding of that Higher Authority, Parliament is at the whim of the current flavour and belief of the people.
I have had people say to me that democracy is not Biblical, God wants a theocracy. I agree, however, a theocracy still needs a system to deliver God’s government. If you look at the book of Genesis, Israel went into Egypt as a family, they came out as a nation, but a nation with no laws, and no understanding other than their experience as slaves in Egypt.

God took Israel aside, He gave them a leader and through that leader He gave them laws, instructions and principles, but He told them to choose for themselves those who would be the Judges of those laws – those who would interpret and apply that law. For the United Kingdom there is a linking of some of those concepts; the coming of the Kingdom –  righteousness, justice and mercy –  in our nation is  linked to the battle for our democracy and the Christian heritage contained within it, but I believe the primary goal, is the increase of His Kingdom government in our land. (Peace and goodwill to the people)

A Question

How do we view our present situation, if the nation and parliament no longer recognise or submit to a Higher Authority?

I stand in amazement of what God is doing at this time. Coinciding with Him shaking our nation, He is shaking the church, and that means you and I are being shaken. We stand at the end of 500 years of the reformation and restoration of the church, the Body of Christ, during which He has been restoring New Testament truths and values to His people. Even in the past few years, we have seen the Father’s Heart message, the call for the church to go beyond its walls, the inner healing movement, restoration of the five-fold ministries to name a few, and recently the understanding of the word Ekklesia.

What is God doing now?

God is raising a people who know their identity, who know they stand positioned in blessing despite the situations around them, who know God is with them, that they are both kings and priests, and who also recognise and carry His heart for the people around them, crying out for a revival which will transform lives and situations.

And, there is fresh revelation into the prayer movement to know how to legislate in alignment with heaven, through declaration and decree. In this way, through the power of His people praying according to His will, God takes His place as the true lawgiver in our land.

A Parliament of Christian MP’s will never replace the authority of God’s Ekklesia.

The reason it’s been such a confusing season is that the changes God has been bringing to the nation, the Church and His people are all coinciding.

Why? I believe, it is so that we can go out and be all He has called us to be, we can fulfil the unique call on the inside of us – filling those voids of hope and need all around us, but also through prayer and declaration, aligning our government with His will and purpose for this time – turning the nation back to Him and discovering a new national identity.

One thing about our nation is obvious, we are called to lead and influence others. As we fight for our land, we are really fighting for the nations.

An amazing season of opportunity for the Kingdom of God.

A prophetical banner-headline for Prime Minister May?

Daily Telegraph’s front page headline, Monday 10th December 2018

The Telegraph’s editor presumes Mrs May prayed for divine help in church yesterday!

Well, Jesus did give instruction on how to pray to our heavenly Father, including to ask for ‘deliverance from the evil one’! – “and no (ie reverse) you-may-be-into-carrying us into trial but rescue-you us from the wicked-one…”  [Matthew 6:13, Literal Greek]

It’s an interesting headline in view of not only many words of prophecy but also a couple of contributions to this blog on The Lifeguard and on The ‘Rescue’. And a friend informs me of seeing a financial advisor’s proposal to investors for an ‘Exodus Strategy’!

As the 2016 Referendum vote was an Act of God, one that even challenges churches, we know that the reality of Britain’s leaving and be freed from the shackles of the EU is one gi-normous spiritual battle. Therefore, we know Mrs May’s ‘deliverance’ is not so much from politicians and leaders, whether here or abroad, as from ungodly spirits that use them for satanic strategies and purposes.

Moreover, many were praying for as well as making prophetic declarations over the PM, her government and all MPs yesterday, eg. Catch The Fire Bournemouth (see National Day of Prayer Fb reports), Call The Nation To Prayer etc; as well as daily declarations of Passion For The Nation’s 12-Days to Shape a Nation.

AND today is the 40th day since Chuck Pierce brought a powerful prophetic promise and decree especially for London, during this critical time in our national history:

“Angels are above you, aligning you around this city, to move in ways they’ve not moved…It’s been 13 years since I felt like this about this city – God’s eye is on this city right now. He’s watching you and He’s moving in the city.

“I’m here to announce to you; there will be an alignment of angelic hosts after the next 40 days that will help you…

“Lord, I decree: in the next 40 days there will be a rolling away (of the old season and its reproaches, thus removing whatever the enemy can use to manifest as you move). You are starting anew and afresh!”  [Read full transcript here.]

I recall the astonishing and alarming accuracy of the word he brought in 2005 (as here and here) at the time of Big Ben inexplicably and coincidentally stopping, and the gross outrage committed my maniacal muslims on the 40th day, all of which was followed by an extensive vision for Wendy Alec about Britain breaking free of the EU’s shackles.

SO, LORD BLESS AND MAKE THIS WEEK EVEN MORE REMARKABLE!

God’s numbers in the Chilean miners’ rescue (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

We continue with the fulfillment of the revelation of “My Numbers”, especially ’33’, with another guest post from Jonathan R Hill in his updating of an earlier paper. Note it closes by referring to the importance of the date of World War One’s Armistice.

Of personal interest is ’17’ because on my 71st birthday on 22nd Sept I wondered if it may have any meaning and the thought dropped into mind to reverse it – ah, back to being a teenager! Then I dug into Jonathan’s writing and noted it does have significance – and I’d totally forgotten about having inserted ’17 Year Cycles’ from Erik Hadik’s site into Cycles and the Bible. So be mightily blessed as you read about…

THE CHILEAN MINERS’ RESCUE

On the 5th August 2010, a mine collapsed in the Atacama Desert of Chile in South America trapping 33 miners. The extraordinary ordeal of these ordinary men separated from their families, captured the hearts of the world and commanded the attention of the global media. On the 13th October 2010, 69 days later and beginning just after midnight, all 33 miners were lifted-up in quick succession from their rocky tomb 2000 feet [1] below the surface. This victory over death was witnessed by the world.

The symbolism of this escape is of biblical proportion. The rescue of these men truly typifies a dispensational event of the highest order and the world must take note. As this short paper will show, the numbers involved with this escape align with biblical prophecy concerning the physical resurrection of dead. Just as Jesus rose from a rocky tomb aged 33, so all believers in Messiah will be raised future from now. These 33 miners who were constrained to die but rose to life through 2000 feet of rock (symbolic of 2000 years), signify this future event.

Brexit and the Bible: a ‘journey’ into their connection – part 1

An apposite posting for All Saints’ Day!  And it’s accompanied by confirmations in the news not only on the day I received it but also today, as told at the end Part 2.

In this tripartite account Dave Hood continues his personal reflections and insights on a Biblical meditation directly relevant to Brexit. I note that they precede and are reinforced by the angelic word on the ‘final battle’ for Britain. Also, another author’s guest post will return to the ‘rescue’ theme.  

In his first email (at 15:19) of the day to me on Monday 16th October, Dave writes: 

‘The Lord began to speak to me about Brexit, GB and Europe / EU / Egypt and gave me most of all of it from scripture, hence the format. Here are 2 extracts from 3 given over the past 4/5 days.

History in the making: Trump terminates US role in ‘nuclear deal’ with Iran

Thirty years ago my jaw dropped upon seeing an utterly amazing ‘coincidence’ between a book I was reading (The Invisible Hand) and a video of Iran’s elite troops rehearsing an attack upon, and liberation of, Jerusalem (see ‘Bio’ ). After many years watching the malign machinations of that regime, I’m pleased there’s now a non-Israeli world leader adamantly refusing to tolerate Iranian terrorism AND is already taking action – with Britain and France! – as well as knowing those ‘Twelvers’ hell-bent eschatological motives! [See Iranian Leader’s End-times Declaration & ‘Mahdi’ tag]. Here’s Joel Rosenberg’s on yesterday’s announcement:

(Jerusalem, Israel) — After a careful policy review by senior administration officials, and consultation with a wide range of U.S. allies, President Donald Trump today kept his promise by announcing the U.S. will terminate the nuclear deal that President Obama and Secretary John Kerry negotiated with Iran. The President also announced the U.S. will imposing […]

Earthquake on Israel’s 70th, Jeremiah’s and Daniel’s ’70’ – ‘Signs’ from God?

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 NKJV)

There’s this suspicion surfing around in my spirit that we’ve arrived at a time of destiny prophesied in the Holy Bible. So, let me share a smattering of ‘signs’ suggesting the Holy Spirit is working through some ‘Acts of God’ – acts that involve not only security services’ intelligence but also spiritual intelligence – plus geological AND geopolitical shaking!

I humbly submit a small ‘sign’ was a rejigging of what I was writing a week ago Thursday. I was drafting two blogs in parallel but their planned sequence of publication got switched. However, this enabled both to fit in with a few external events. Even without my realising all this at the time, this change would support my suspicion that 2018 is a crucial point on God’s 2,500-years timetable.

TIMING TRAIL

In mulling over events of a fortnight ago it seemed worthwhile to have a rethink on the book of Daniel, which necessitated revisiting previous posts to refresh my memory. Therefore, this one’s more personal than usual, for reasons which will become clear. In fact, early last week I’d collected the material and drafted some points but my priority was to finish and publish the post on geometry of Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1. Nevertheless, the timing was just right because I was directed to an exciting, fresh revelation on Time in Creation, but which would await another post.

What’s more, unknown to me this timing was being confirmed that very day by a vision Veronika West had just received from the Lord on, of all things, the synchronisation of earthly time with heaven’s time! (See GPS #15.)

However, had I not completed that promised but long-overdue follow-up post on scripture’s geometry, then I’d have been out-of-sync with the timing of what you’re reading here. Now a week has elapsed, I appreciate it had to await its coming weekend’s news on the hostile Israel-Iran situation and Monday’s disclosure by Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu of an intelligence coup: his possession of a vast trove of Iranian secret documents. He claims these are ‘conclusive proof’ Iran lied about its nuclear weapons programme.

The Institute for Science & International Security’s analysis of the photos in It Fits! Qom Site Layout reminds me of the many warnings about that programme; eg. Iran’s nuclear reactor at Bushehr becoming operational and missile test-launches in 2010 (see Update to Could This Weekend Change The World?), and in 2013 no signs of any slowdown in Iran’s readiness for making nuclear weapons (Replay of Munich 1938 Missed – Only Just!).

Therefore, you may appreciate my contemplating Iran’s schemes behind Obama’s ‘nuclear deal’ and possibility of its disrupting Israel’s independence anniversary. (Even as I write, John Kerry is seeking to salvage what he so assiduously crafted to subvert Israel’s security.) Recently, its regime pledged to ‘annihilate’ Israel in any war, presumably by a nuclear strike! My musing over God’s hand staying such action by opening up the ground beneath Iran’s nuclear facilities was soon validated.

Thus, the timing of my writing these two posts got tampered with, not only temporarily but also spiritually. SO let’s keep our antennae attuned to what’s being synchronised.

ISRAEL’S 70 YEARS

Thursday 19th April 2018 was a date destined and now written in human history. Let me briefly set the scene:

It was the 70th Independence Day of the modern state of Israel, and which is especially interesting in the light of observations by financial analyst Eric Hadik. In revisiting his work I wanted to introduce readers to his theory of April being a historically significant month, especially for the USA as well as Israel. His observations are that April 19th-20th onwards has a very high probability of being a critical date in warfare and terrorism. With that in mind he overlooked a fact hardly known outside Israel; that 19th April is when the Memorial Day for fallen Israeli soldiers rolls right into Independence Day. It is different to Israel’s official, internationally recognised birth on 14th May 1948.

Immediately before and after 19th April, hostilities in adjoining Syria took an increasingly dangerous turn with the distinct possibility of war breaking out between Israel and Iran. It was much more than bellicose ‘sabre-rattling’ for their swords were already drawn and cut-and-thrust about to get under way.

By ‘coincidence’ a geological ‘act of God’ took place on 19th April 2018 – the 5.5 magnitude earthquake in the vicinity of Iran’s nuclear power plant at Bushehr. As mentioned, I’d already mused on a ‘quake happening and blogged:

‘…we could reasonably consider this may be a direct warning to Iran that the same, or bigger, can so easily happen to its nuclear programme at any time! Moreover, its occurring on the year’s cyclically critical date of 19-20 April is surely no coincidence!

This strong earthquake on the 70th Anniversary of Israel’s Independence and hot in the heels of my blogging on historic dates and cycles, prompted me to consider biblical references to number 70; especially what’s known as ‘Daniel’s 70-Weeks‘, or more specifically 70 ‘sevens’ or years of weeks.

As well as the timing and location of that ‘quake, the significance of its close proximity to Iran’s nuclear power facility would make it of high geopolitical import within only a few days. On Monday 30th April, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu publicly announced Mossad’s possession of those Iranian secret files.

JEREMIAH’S 70 YEARS

There was another and highly important 70-year period in Israel’s history. It was 2,500 years ago, when the leading governor in Babylon, the Jewish prophet Daniel, discovered it during his interceding for his people in captivity there. As he sought the Lord in the first year of king Darius on how long their exile would last (Dan 9:1-2), God showed him the prophecy of Jeremiah that it would last 70 years (Jer 29:10), and it would be extended to ‘seventy sevens‘, or 490 years (Dan:24-27).

DANIEL’S 70 ‘YEARS’

So, could the just-completed 70 years of modern Israel’s history as a free nation be of any relevance to that first 70 years of captivity? Moreover and maybe far more importantly, could it have any relevance or bearing upon the long-awaited final ‘week’ (or seven years) of Daniel’s 70 ‘years of weeks’??

Could the earthquake on Israel’s 70th Independence Day be of significance not to Iran alone, but to Israel too in showing that God is acting in its history and clearly pointing to the great importance of the Jeremiah 70 years and the Daniel 70 ‘years’???

Also, does what Veronika West heard, “The nations of the earth are being perfectly aligned with heaven’s time”, have anything to do with the periods prophesied by Jeremiah and Daniel? I believe it does.

We must consider this further…
