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 […]

Continue reading at BREAKING NEWS: President Trump keeps promise to withdraw from dangerous Iran nuclear deal. Will impose severe new sanctions on Tehran. This is the right decision & the President deserves tremendous credit. But pray for peace in the region. Things might get bumpy. Here’s the latest. — Joel C. Rosenberg’s Blog

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…

The pressure cooker

Thank you ‘Nicholas’ for such an informative, succinct summary of the status of the House of Lords…yet we must ask why bishops remain unaware of the Lord’s mind on the EU!

All Along the Watchtower

It has come to my attention that Parliament has received a petition asking for a referendum on the question of abolishing the House of Lords. Parliament has agreed to debate this petition, which raises the possibility that such a referendum may one day happen.

https://richards-watch.org/2018/05/02/parliament-to-debate-referendum-on-abolishing-the-house-of-lords/

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/209433

Conservativism and sentimentality would ordinarily make such a proposition distasteful to a great number of Britons. The times have changed, however, and the anger of the nation, much like steam in a pressure cooker, is building, still to be dissipated.

The House of Lords is not what it once was. During the Blair years, a great number of hereditary peers, bastions of British conservatism and patriotism, were presented by the Commons with a choice: stay in the legislature, but give up your hereditary peerage; or keep your hereditary peerage, but leave the legislature. A large number chose the latter option, wishing their children to…

Modern Israel Turns 70 — here are 70 fascinating facts about the modern Jewish State you might not know!

Noteworthy facts from Joel…

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

israel(Jerusalem, Israel) — It’s been an exciting and joyful week here as Israelis celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Jewish State’s modern existence. Fireworks. Dancing. Picnics. Air shows. And so much more!

I must say it’s been deeply humbling to move here with my wife and sons, to become Israeli citizens, to build friendships with Arabs and Jews and so many others, and in recent months to actually move to Jerusalem and live here in the capital city that King David established some 3,000 years ago. Sometimes, it simply seems surreal. It’s certainly a great place to raise a family — and write novels!

This summer, The Joshua Fund — the ministry Lynn and I founded in 2006 to mobilize Christians to bless Israel and her neighbors — will be hosting another “Prayer and Vision Tour” here in Israel, as well as our first-ever Epicenter Prayer Summit. It will…

Significance of the month of April, especially this 3rd week

The promise of improving weather, from that of unusually prolonged cool cloudy Spring to unexpected spell of wall-to-wall warm Summer sunshine, brings outdoor jobs to the top of our ‘to do’ tasks. Thus, with reduced time online, my intention was to complete the post on Bible maths I was drafting for this week, but which unexpectedly got ‘self-published’ then, if there’s time, to quickly re-post past items on cycles. But something was tapping away about April at the back of my brain! Those items needed more clout!! And they lead into a surprising revelation about April.

So I re-located pages in the God-incidents hub to a brand new one – Time: a Primer. (It covers brief thoughts on eternity & prophecy, the nature of time, cycles & the Bible, the natural year and the historical significance of April, especially to Israel and the USA.) After three busy days I had opportunity last night to copy-paste an introduction to the last item, as well as catching up on overseas news. That’s when my plans got a tad waylaid – I spotted the announcement about Israel’s Independence Day. Hold my horses – whoaa there! I need to publish that!

ISRAEL

That news took me by surprise because I thought that will be next month: on the 70th anniversary of the day the British Mandate over Palestine expired – 14th May 1948.

According to the Jewish Virtual Library, on that day ‘The Jewish People’s Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum to declare the establishment of the State of Israel. There’s no record of who attended the meeting, but 350 invitations were sent out instructing the recipients to keep the information secret. Word got out, however, and people started singing Hatikvah in the streets even before David Ben-Gurion began reading the declaration he’d written at a half-hour ceremony held before the British left, to avoid making the declaration on Shabbat. Some people signed the Declaration later but four hours later, Egypt bombed Tel Aviv. The new state was recognized that night by the United States and three days later by the USSR.

‘The creation of Israel in May of 1948 and its survival afterwards depended in large part on the Truman Administration’s willingness to recognize and support the Jewish state.’

SO, what’s today’s celebrations across Israel all about? It’s tied in with Memorial Day.

‘Established unofficially with the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, and enacted into law in 1963, the day preceding Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) is observed as a Memorial Day for Israeli soldiers who lost their lives in defending Israel. Held on the fifth day of the Hebrew calendar month of Iyar, Yom Ha’atzmaut is a modern holiday celebrating Israel‘s independence. Israeli Independence Day is always immediately preceded by Yom Hazikaron – Memorial Day. The message of linking these two days is clear: Israelis owe their independence – the very existence of the state – to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for it.’

This difference between those dates of declared and observed independence makes an uncanny connection with historical, cyclical phenomena. We now get into the fascinating facts about today and tomorrow specifically, as well as the third weeks of April. (Maybe it’s one reason I got nudged from circulating emails to public blogging?):

CYCLES

Weeks after launching this blog I wrote Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles about Christian journalist William Koenig’s investigation into the work of Eric Hadik, a financial markets technical analyst. (See their bios: About William KoenigWho is Eric Hadik?) I realised some years later that this ‘coincided’ with publication of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger.

Hadik built his remarkable knowledge upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories, which are based upon his discoveries within the Bible and then applied to mathematical and geometrical principles!

Four years of closely following Hadik’s application of theories of cycles to natural and human events, enabled Bill to state he’d “found his calculations extremely accurate”.

Then in September 2012, with that knowledge of Eric Hadik’s predictions, Bill ‘hit the nail on the head’ by asking, “Would the 11th anniversary of 9/11 be another historical day?” – it was! (Read 11-year cycle proves itself again! – note it relates to period of sunspot activity).

APRILS

In reprinting his earlier report Bill writes as follows:

“Eric Hadik (InsideTrackTrading) has complied an extensive list of major events that have happened on or around April 19 and 20—including world wars, American wars, Israeli wars, and the births of Hitler and Mohammed.

“Eric has previously shared the significance of the month of April and the incredible number of events that have happened in this month that have impacted the US, Israel and the Jewish people.

“Major wars began in the US in this time frame. Major domestic terror events occurred numerous times on April 19. Mohammed and Hitler were born on the same day—April 20. There have also been major news items about Iran in the month of April from 2006 to 2012 (and 2013’s Boston Marathon bombing, 2015’s nuclear ‘agreement’ with Iran: RB)…”

Notes:
  1. For a short background briefing read Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year.
  2. In checking those items’ links to Eric’s site I was pleased to discover his new site on 17-year periods, which number recently featured in the numerical mystery of Jesus’ post-Resurrection catch of 153 fish.

Israel’s 70th Anniversary – may nation and citizens be blessed

Independence Day in Israel begins tonight, Wednesday 19th April. Forty ambassadors to the United Nations from Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America, accompanied by Israel’s ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, have arrived for Israel’s 70th Anniversary celebrations.

Independence Day is traditionally celebrated with music and bright lights across the country’s towns and villages and the Israeli air force is expected to stage a spectacular fly-past on Thursday.

This date ‘coincides’ with that of significant events during previous Aprils, indicative of the historical nature of a particular cycle in human activity. Read the next post for all the  fascinating facts.

Jurgen Buhler, President of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, writes:

‘Israel is a nation that has faced unbelievable obstacles, and yet over these 70 years our mighty God has breathed life into the land once again. Seventy years ago, Israel was an undeveloped nation filled with orphans who survived through the Holocaust, and yet, God used those very people to cultivate, develop, grow, and bring new life back into the promised land!

‘The ICEJ rejoices with the Jewish people on April 18th and 19th as the streets of Israel resound with music, dancing, singing, and festivities to celebrate this spectacular moment in history! The international commemoration date will be on May 14th, which coincides with the opening date for the new US embassy in Jerusalem, so stay tuned for more opportunities to wish Israel a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

‘Today, let us rejoice around the world in the miracles God has done in the nation of Israel!

Psalm 118:24 – “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Here ICEJ’s VP Senior Spokesman David Parsons brings to mind the miracles God has done over these 70 years in Israel:

UPDATE (Thursday am):

Queen Elizabeth II and US President Donald Trump were among the well-wishers for Israel’s 70th anniversary.  Her Majesty’s congratulations on Israel’s anniversary were  conveyed through the British ambassador. Trump tweeted,  “Best wishes to Prime Minister Netanyahu and all of the people of Israel on the 70th Anniversary of your Great Independence. We have no better friends anywhere. Looking forward to moving our Embassy to Jerusalem next month!”

GPS #13: Bible ‘Blueprint’ of four US leaders; Elisha anointing on Billy Graham’s passing; Alfred the Great (again!)

Let me run seemingly different yet closely timed events past you for consideration. They feature two pairs of ‘signals’ – one from USA (North Carolina & Alabama) and one from the UK (Bath & Liphook) – about three of the Lord’s ‘invisible jigsaw’ pieces.

My ears pricked up with surprise during the first when it connected with the prophetic dream in which Lana Vawser decreed a double-portion of the Elisha anointing being released upon Billy Graham’s going ‘home’ to be with the Lord.

Also, this first event or ‘piece’, repeated the well-known repentance scripture quoted in GPS#11 part 1: influx of calls to intercede for Britain.

It also made me wonder if recent reiteration of the significance of King Alfred the Great laying the Biblical foundations for a Christian nation of Great Britain has any bearing in this new data-set.

Here’s what happened:

1. A BIBLE BLUEPRINT

On Sunday afternoon we went online for Church of His Presence morning service (in Alabama) to see guest preacher Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn. He delivered a rapid and impassioned presentation of a new paradigm for understanding End-time events. This develops upon his profound insights logged in The Harbinger (published within weeks of my starting this blog).

Let’s go to the start of his fifty minutes message in this video (from 1hr12min):

Jonathan explains this new paradigm is a ‘Bible Blueprint’, by which not only the nature of major events but also their timings throughout the Clinton-Obama era closely align with those recorded in the OT’s Books of the Kings. The common denominator is Israel and America’s rejection of God by their ancient kings, especially Ahab, Jehoram and queen Jezebel, and by modern presidential persons!

ALL a very thought-provoking thesis that brings fresh understanding, especially of the deep similarities between king Jehu and Donald Trump and of their actions against both ancient and modern protagonists. It is well-worth watching.

One of the most severe similarities between then and now – unknown in modern times – is witches’ mass gatherings to curse America’s President!!  So he must be doing the right thing by God!

According to Jonathan’s thesis, the ‘paradigm’ (God’s sovereign will) and ‘harbinger’ (of judgement) timelines are merging and we’re being given a window in which to reform. So most importantly for us, what does this Bible Blueprint, or ‘paradigm’, say about our future – it brings both a warning and a key!  Jonathan stresses (from 1:43:30 – emphasis added),

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn“A window to repent – a window to speak the Word of God – a window for Revival – is exactly where we are now. Jehu, or Donald Trump, is not the answer, but he was used to open a window. There’s been a political change but there’s not yet been a cultural change and a spiritual change. No answer can be found in Washington or in Hollywood, but only in Revival, only in Revival…

“The Word of God tells us, ‘If My people who are called by My Name, will humble THEMselves, turn from their wicked ways…’ (2Chron 7:14-15 – per GPS#11 Part 1)

“The keys are there – ‘MY people’ – ‘IF’ – so we must pray like never before…and it’s time to start living in Revival because it will then begin…

(From 1:47:00) “There’s a paradigm inside the paradigm, a paradigm for the people of God – where we’re given the keys in how to prevail and overcome – the paradigm, ‘For such a time as this’ so you need to know the times so you can fulfill your Calling in these times...

“I can say this much: in the days when Biblical values and righteousness rule over a culture, the people of God have a ruling paradigm in the King David paradigm – but in the days when Biblical values and righteousness NO LONGER rule the culture – in the days when anti-Biblical values rule the culture, the days of an Ahab, a Jezebel, the people of God have a different paradigm – they have the Elisha paradigm: those days are NOW!

“Those days are now and this is our paradigm: Elisha was not the status quo, he was a radical, he was revolutionary – and that’s what we’re to become: not status quo but to become radical, to become revolutionary – these are the days when we must become a revolutionary people living with a revolutionary power, a revolutionary outlook, a revolutionary life!”

“Some of you may be afraid of the End-times – don’t be, because that’s where God put you!…”

2. THE ELISHA ANOINTING & BILLY GRAHAM’S PASSING

Jonathan’s is a most stirring message. His conclusion reminds me of what Australian Lana brought about the Lord’s action plan of pouring out a double-portion of the Elisha anointing after bringing Billy Graham to his heavenly home.

THEN this question came ‘out of the blue’ – a ‘jigsaw piece’?  As that relates to the USA, then could the groundwork laid by Alfred the Great be a ‘blueprint’ for Britain?  What a peculiar, but perhaps not preposterous, idea!

So it would seem both ‘pieces’ fit together : one, Jonathan’s message; the other of Billy Graham’s passing, and whose remarkable funeral we’d watched by live broadcast on Friday and noted that POTUS Trump and VP Pence with wives seated on the front row – plus Trump’s keen attentiveness to Billy’s adult offspring’s testimonies, especially Franklin’s address – which closed with an altar call.  It’s noteworthy that storm winds in the D.C. area almost prevented flights from the capital, whereas it was sunny and mild for the funeral in Charlotte, North Carolina!

Nina and I chatted about it with friends over coffee at church on Sunday. The husband reads this blog and remarked about the prophecies relating to Billy’s passing. We said we’d seen the funeral, that ‘Trump & Veep’ were attentive attendees and that Franklin invited those who don’t know Jesus to come to him – and upon so saying, two of us got hit by Holy Spirit: Nina got the usual ‘buzz’, needing her to hold a table to stop her falling; our friend, his usual ‘fuzz’ over head (like shivers or goose-bumps) in recognition that something’s most definitely of the Lord.

I chuckled because he’d already asked about the backgrounds of those whose material I quote, and on testing their prophecies. So we laughed and agreed what he was getting was a true test for those we’d just been talking about 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

3. KING ALFRED THE GREAT

Now, I take you from Sunday morning in Liphook to late afternoon at home (but 10am in Alabama):

As if in anticipation of my thoughts whilst watching Jonathan Cahn about King Alfred, a third ‘piece’ arrived by email during the service and awaited slotting into place within the ‘invisible jigsaw puzzle’.

Unable to enter a comment on the blog, Isabel writes from Bath city,

‘I was very interested to read the articles on Alfred the Great.  It reminded me to check my dream journal. I found an entry for 5th March last year, almost a year to date, concerning Donald Trump and Alfred the Great. Unfortunately I was unable to recall the detail of the dream, except that I heard a voice in the dream calling out “Alfred’s Law” over and over again. I knew nothing about Alfred the Great until I researched his heavenly visions to save Britain and his book of Law or the ‘judgement book’. Thank you for publishing these posts.’

Isabel’ s remark conjoining Trump and our Saxon king, and on the latter’s visions and book, mirrors Jonathan’s references and my musings. So a great big thank you goes to the Lord and to Isabel for confirming them – whatever next?

One further, fascinating ‘God-incidental’ point about Alfred – my photo is of the statue erected outside Winchester City council offices in Hampshire, the capital of Wessex and Saxon England – the recent prophetic word from across ‘the Pond’ relating to kingdom rulership (Moving From The Sword to The Sceptre) comes from Wanda Alger living in Winchester, Virginia, – out of all places in the United States!

Bring it on Lord…!!

Footnote: this post may not be a totally new, distinct instance of God’s Global Prophecy Signalling system as it relates on a couple of points to the much broader #12, but I’ve numbered it ‘#13′.  As both posts aren’t wholly independent let’s use bakers’ numbering and call them a ‘Barker’s Dozen’! 
LOL! – let’s be even more unusual, for now I grasp what an old personal prophetic picture may mean: a brother at the first class I attended under Revd Dr Sharon Stone gave me a peculiar picture of a conveyor belt with dozens of loaves on it – I was clueless about its meaning and don’t recall his comments.  Years later a friend gave us her home-baking machine. I tried it and have baked bread ever since and so presumed that’s what the prophecy’s about. But in using that baking term I now perceive it may mean the foreseen loaves I’m making and baking are the many blogs I post and which can feed others… So I trust you’re now well-fed 🙂

GPS #12, King Alfred, a ‘Spiritual Magna Carta’ for Britain – and for the world!

AND NOW, my reader, may you be thoroughly blessed with what you’re about to read. May it resonate within your spirit when you understand how very timely what two sisters in the Lord on opposite sides of the Atlantic posted as coming from Him, whilst this post  was being drafted and edited in tandem by myself and Suzanne Ferrett over the course of the past week.

It’s like four ‘listening posts’ (Veronika in N. Ireland, Wanda in USA, Suzanne in Berks and me in East Hants) tuning into the same frequency of God’s GPS, or ‘global prophecy signals’! [PS. particularly pertinent that Wanda lives in Winchester, Virginia – named after our county city of Hampshire, Alfred the Great’s capital of ancient Wessex and of Saxon England.]

Part 3 of GPS#11 refers to my chat with Suzanne at February’s mentoring day. She told me about her watchman ministry based upon a spiritual version of the Magna Carta.

Upon writing that post, I began to understand how it not only relates directly to Liz Evan’s prophetic word on castles re-published after New Year, but also to my researches twenty years ago on the history of Reading Abbey when I learned about King Alfred’s battles against the Danes in the Thames Valley, and of his establishing Christian government in Saxon England.

Suzanne sent me a video clip of her talking about  the Great Charter’s origin lying centuries earlier in King Alfred’s Code of Law. She refers to his saying that, when building a kingdom, he’d build it upon Christian law, the Kingdom of God and the holy scriptures. The Cambridge Historical Encyclopedia of Gt Britain and Ireland reads (page 57):

‘The biographer of Alfred (871-899), the greatest of all Anglo-Saxon kings, tells us Alfred divided his court into three groups (each attending court by rota…) Since the  arrangement was lifted straight from King Solomon (3 Kings 5:13-14) it is also a nice example of how the Bible and Christianity provided an ideological framework for the development of the English state…Alfred drew a close parallel between himself and Moses in issuing his Laws.’

Therefore, I was delighted to receive an email from Helen H, living in Bath area, telling about her response to my remarks in GPS#11 part 3:

“Last year or earlier, can’t recall to be honest…I felt God was directing me to king Alfred and especially his shield. I researched him and it. I was struck by his stand against the Vikings and his strategy of warfare that saved this nation. I, as have many others, have been praying for Brexit  and for our nation, but I’ve never heard anyone else or seen anyone with a God-given direction to king Alfred.”

What I don’t divulge in that blog, is that I saw the relevance of what Dr Sharon Stone had brought a few hours earlier, on the new empowerment of having ‘teeth of a threshing-sledge’, as also applying to intercessors who, like Suzanne, use the principles of decrees and declarations (see this blog’s Introduction to Prophecy).

It was my firm intention to blog about her work the week after our conversation, but the impact of that day’s teaching in confirming what I’d discerned for this blog at the New Year led to my focusing upon its goal of ‘Looking for signs of Jesus return’. Hence, the several posts about ‘watching’ and ‘signs’ in the first week of February, and setting up as main-menu hubs – notwithstanding the incoming ‘GPS’!!  Then, Suzanne emailed that she would be talking on ‘Watching’ that very weekend at the Lenchwood Christian Centre… ‘wotta God-incidence’!!

Suzanne’s ministry is ‘multi-faceted, teaching and equipping the church, bringing it into the new, training on how to use authority in prayer and being watchmen, thereby mixing the prophetic and intercessory’.  She has long-standing friendships with Dr Sharon and with Rachel Hickson – see her remarkable Heartcry For Change.

As a result of a strong dream from God, Rachel established the M25 PrayerNet in 1997, of which Suzanne was a sector leader as well as running a city and county-wide prayer network in Hertfordshire for 12 years. In 2008, she and husband Frank moved to Worcestershire and headed up ministry at the Lenchwood Christian Centre, where she continues to run seminars and ministry events, and pastored a local church whilst there.

In her updated introduction to ‘A Spiritual Magna Carta’ below, Suzanne refers to a God-incidental confirmation; ie. yet another ‘GPS’,  or even a ‘Bridge o’er the Pond’..:

A PASSION FOR GREAT BRITAIN

Passion for the Nation seeks to communicate and take hold of what I believe is a Kingdom opportunity, an appointed time, to see all that God desires released into our land and to transform our nation for the next season.

One aspect of implementing that vision is to release the sound of the Word of God as Declarations and Decrees over the nation every week, that have the power to change the atmosphere and to plant the heavens with God’s ‘now’ purposes that, as God shakes our nation in many ways, from Government and long-established institutions, to communities and homes, the Kingdom of God will be built in our land.

In July 2015, in the middle of a very prophetic season, God gave me a clear word:

  • It’s the day of the 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 battle-ground,
  • The forces are preparing,
  • The swords are being ground,
  • I’m calling to My church now to listen to the sound.

That word brought a focus and a clarity to some of the other things I was hearing and seeing, as I recognised this was about the battle which is in the spiritual realm over our land. For many people it is now very obvious, but in 2015 things were less obvious.

For a period of time, God had been speaking to me about the authority we carry in the place of prayer and how many in the church had relinquished that authority, or simply not understood – what I would now call the Ekklesia message.

During that season, my husband and I moved to Windsor and, in June 2015, initiated a convocation in partnership with others to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. However, we did not only want to look backwards but also to start to look forward to see what God would do in the future. I began to understand that, although the Magna Carta had shaped the nation for nearly 800 years, in the natural it had limited success and only lasted a short time in its original form. As the centuries passed those in power would bring it back into significance as they saw the need. As we celebrated the past and looked towards the future, I felt God showed me several things.

Firstly, as His people step up into all He has called us to be, just as the tabernacle on earth was only a shadow of the one in heaven, so what we have seen of Godly Government in the past can become only a shadow of what He will do in the future through His people ruling and reigning in prayer (Hebrews 8:5). Secondly, as we begin releasing His purposes into the atmosphere, no matter what is immediately visible, the declarations have the power to shape the nation for the season ahead, alongside more immediate changes.

A large proportion of the declarations and decrees are on national issues, such as media, the Monarchy or Government and Brexit, and are taken from two positions: firstly, from a Kingdom perspective and are essentially non-political, but also they are focused on praying the Word of God. This is also a time, though, when we are on the brink of a tremendous move of the Spirit, so some declarations focus on the call to pray that the promised Revival is released in our nation with all its fullness.

The Origins of a Spiritual Magna Carta

As I started to formulate the idea of sending out declarations over the nation, I sent a sample to Rachel who was ministering in America at that time. She responded with the comment that, as she was reading the declarations I’d sent, she had received an email from an Hawaiian friend living in Canada, who wrote that she knew someone who needed to write a Spiritual Magna Carta for England; or, in other terms, a blueprint for what it would look like if the fullness of the Kingdom of God came to our land (see below).

This is a season when God’s eyes are upon nations and He is releasing new revelation in great measure; that revelation needs to be imparted, received and established and so Passion for the Nation carries a number of aspects: most obviously, declaring the Kingdom over our land so that God’s design and will in all situations is established, but it also operates as a watchman/ intercessory network and carries an element of teaching and training.

A Spiritual Magna Carta: 

Written in the year 2016, decreed and declared by Your people across the United Kingdom in June of that year – to shape and establish the government and fabric of our nation for this generation and the generations to come.

That the Name of Jesus be exalted in the nation above any other name, the sovereign purpose for the UK fulfilled and the Kingdom of God in all its variety and fullness, become increasingly established …(click/tap to continue reading).

…they DID get it wrong!

In “What If They’re wrong?” Tony Puccio looks at why pre-Tribulation Rapture claims may be mistaken. In actual fact, 20th Century history disproves pre-Tribbers’ ideas!

In his post linked below, R.J Dawson recounts his personal interest in those ideas and demonstrates why they were wrong. Esssentially, those theories failed to grasp not only scripture but also political events believed to have been of direct relevance. I’d heard of the best-seller R.J refers to, but being a New Ager in those days I thought ‘archaic’(!) Christians were jumping on the bandwagon of cataclysm/conspiracy theories. (The Lord had a non-Christian give me a businessman’s Biblical analysis of modern geopolitics, ‘The Invisible Hand’.)  I understand those theories arose out of Reformed Theology’s deep disdain for the Roman Catholic church.

Here’s R.J Dawson’s account:

There are Christians in America old enough to remember all the prophecy teacher hype from decades past, and the incredible influence of a single book: The Late, Great Planet Earth. . As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will […]

Zecharia 2:8-9 as root of Europe’s migrant crisis and of UK’s ‘Brexit’

For thus said the Lord of Hosts, after [His] glory had sent me [His messenger] to the nations who plundered you – for he who touches you touches the apple or pupil of His eye: (9) “Behold I will swing my hand over them and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me. Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you”, says the Lord. (Zecharia 2:8-9 Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

I humbly submit that the above verses about defending Jerusalem may be relevant to the unending influx of millions of Muslim refugees into Europe, as well as to Britain’s leaving the European Union – even to the EU’s grossly hypocritical failure to apply an international law!

Could this be the real reason behind our getting out of the EU?

AN INSIGHT UPON SCRIPTURE

When using the above verses to open the first part of this Zecharia 2 Update (on EU Supports Palestine Against Israel) I was going to refer to the original Hebrew. However, the website wouldn’t open and so I opened my NKJV Study Bible but got nudged for some reason to grab the classic edition of the Amplified Bible from my bookshelf.  During the course of drawing attention to European hostility towards Israel, I noticed this Bible’s verse 9 hints at a very subtle nuance: one that may explain the consequences upon Europe of the EU’s policy!

Chapter 2 covers the third vision prophet Zecharia received, which is of the measuring and rebuilding of Jerusalem and of the Temple. Although set in the decline of the Babylonian Empire it foreshadows the eschatalogical New Jerusalem. YET I WAS STRUCK THAT IT MAY APPLY TODAY TOO!

Historically, verse 9 describes the Lord’s retribution upon the Babylonians, yet it could also promise that happening any time in the future. BUT AHA! – it’s already been happening!!  That is, the consequences of EU hostility are already ongoing, or have been so for at least the past couple of years in the massive migration of refugees into Europe!

My quick reading of that short text led me to colour it to distinguish between what I thought is the writer’s narrative (v.8) and the Lord’s words (v.9), but later I learned that translation of v.8 is difficult. The New Bible Commentary’s opinion is ‘The speaker is the Messiah, who is sent to the Jews, to whom pertains the glory (cf Rom 9:4) to be their Protector…(repetition of) ‘sent me’ emphasises the importance of the commission…to protect His own from all hostile powers that menace this precious possession. Others, however, think that the pronoun refers to the enemies of Israel and means that they endanger their own safety by hostility towards the elect (emphases mine).

In fact, both option could now be in play: ie. not only to protect His own from all hostile powers menacing His people but also to act specifically against them!

Historically, the colonial empires of Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Holland had taken control of lands across Africa, Asia and the Middle-East and used their populations as a source of labour, servants and military personnel.

Verse 9 clearly implies that such servants of European colonial empires will come and ‘plunder’ those empires, either there or back on home territory, as a Divine directive. Why? Because they’ve ‘touched the apple of His eye’ – His Jewish people and His holy city – Jerusalem!

That is, nations which permit their citizens to insult and denigrate the Jewish people and their state – and making others boycott Israeli goods and services! – would eventually find that the Lord’s declared intention gets applied in their own lands, which is what we’ve been seeing before our very eyes.  And this is despite many European nations subscribing to the Laws of Holocaust Denial.

EU PREFERS DESCENDANTS OF PHILISTINES TO THOSE OF ISRAELITES

As mentioned in the previous Update, not only the Palestinian leadership but also that of the European Union refuse to recognise and stand resolutely against the Word of God.

On his December visit to Europe Israel’s PM Netanyahu encouraged its leaders to be open to Donald Trump’s recognising the reality of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital, but Europe’s foreign policy chief rejected his plea outright. That’s hardly surprising in view of the EU’s parliament building in Strasbourg being specifically built like the Tower of Babel, as described in UK/EU in/out #2 cont’d – Significant Spiritual Signs.

Here’s this week’s events that contribute towards a scriptural judgement; headlines and extract as on Koenig World Watch Daily homepage:

Abbas urges EU to swiftly recognize Palestine, says it will encourage peace

‘Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday urged the member states of the European Union to “swiftly” recognize the state of Palestine, arguing such a move would preserve the Palestinians’ hope for peace.

“We truly consider the European Union as a true partner and friend, and therefore we call its member states to swiftly recognize the state of Palestine and we confirm that there is no contradiction between recognition and the resumption of negotiations,” Abbas said in an address in Brussels. 

‘Abbas, who gave his remarks alongside EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, called on the EU to play a larger role in the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. “The EU should play a political role in this Middle East peace process in order to reach a just solution on the basis of internationally recognized terms and decisions,” Abbas said.’

EU promises to back Abbas’ demand for Jerusalem

Council of Europe to vote on condemning Trump’s Jerusalem recognition

Why is the EU warmly welcoming this rabid racist and Holocaust denier?  He should have been arrested as soon as he set foot in Europe!

Maybe the Lord regards Abbas as a modern-day Haman, as intimated in the opening minutes of the prophetic words for 2018 and beyond delivered by John Kilpatrick. (We’d not heard them prior to my completing this post – so this sentence has only been added at the last minute before publication.)

Caroline Glick, the internationally respected editor and journalist with first-hand experience of coordinating negotiations with the PLO, writes of Mahmoud Abbas’ personal history in Time for Trump to cut the cord on the Palestinians:

‘Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said that Abbas’ remarks (in Cairo at PLO conference on 19th January) harken back to “things that led him to be accused years ago of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.” Abbas’ PhD. thesis, which he wrote for a Soviet university controlled by the KGB in the 1960s denied the Holocaust.

‘Over the past 25 years, the Western and Israeli leaders that have hailed Abbas as a moderate dismissed the significance of his doctorate – which he later published in Jordan as a best-selling book – saying it was a relic of the PLO’s former rejection of Israel’s right to exist…

‘Contrary to Rivlin’s view of Abbas racist assault on Jews as a throwback to an earlier time, antisemitic diatribes have been a consistent feature of Abbas’ public statements, whether he is speaking to Arab or Western audiences.

‘In a speech before the European Parliament in 2016, for instance, Abbas recycled the medieval blood libel that Jews poison the wells of Christians. That blood libel incited the death of thousands of Jews through the ages.

‘Speaking to European lawmakers, Abbas said, “Certain rabbis in Israel have said very clearly to their government that our water should be poisoned in order to have Palestinians killed.”

As for his Holocaust denial being a thing of the past, Abbas posted his doctoral thesis on his official website. His lies are taught as fact in Holocaust education in the Palestinian school system – which he controls.’

BREXIT – OUR ‘GET-OUT-OF-JAIL’ CARD!

Clearly, Britain’s departure from the EU will help us avoid what the Lord will bring upon Europe – although we are not an entirely innocent party!  Doubtless, the verses we’ve considered is a very small portion of all scriptures behind the Lord’s warning to Britain to “Come out!” that David Noakes received in November 2015, part of which reads:

“Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

Thus, the Lord’s deep desire is for the UK to avoid the judgement He’s already bringing upon the EU (latest at Davos 2018 re France and Ireland on Brexit deal).

To enable a fuller understanding of the immense importance of this End-times matter (v11 ‘in That Day’ cf Obadiah 1:15) to ALL nations TODAY, I recommend carefully and prayerfully reading the whole of chapter two of Zecharia, as appended below (emphases added):  Continue reading

Spiritual well of Revival in President Donald Trump’s bloodline

Trump at 3-5 Tong on the island of Lewis Photograph by Murdo MacLeod

Did you know that President Donald J. Trump has two great aunts that prayed the Hebrides Revival down from heaven between 1949 and 1952? The Hebrides Islands are off the west coast of Scotland.

In the late 1940s, there were two elderly sisters that were too frail to attend public services – 84-year-old Peggy Smith was blind and 82-year-old Christine Smith was almost bent over double from arthritis. Their humble Scottish cottage on the isle of Lewis in the small fishing village of Barvas became their sanctuary where they petitioned God day and night for a promise given to them “I will pour water upon him that is thirsty and floods upon the dry ground.”

One night, Peggy received a revelation that revival was coming and the church of their fathers would be crowded again with young people. Peggy sent for Reverend James Murray MacKay to tell him to call…

Is Donald Trump God’s man for this time? Pray for his salvation?

Am sure you have your own ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer to the above question, but the purpose of this post is so you can read brief correspondence on the issue and learn more about the man.  Moreover, as I was about to start writing I was nudged to check progress on a debate at Prophecy Today UK that I’ve been mulling over. I espied a thread by one of its contributors and thank the Lord and John Shipton for drawing attention to something I’d long forgotten.

Although I wanted to blog on a couple of other things (!), I’ve done some unscheduled research on what proves to be essential background data to this important issue.

Maureen commented upon the previous post on John Kilpatrick blessing Trump: ‘I do believe President Trump has been raised up by the Lord for this time. Pray he seeks to know Jesus as his saviour.’

My response: ‘Myself and many others agree with you Maureen, so forgive me if you’re already aware of these facts: 

‘There were unusually a good number of prayers – specifically in Jesus’ name – for him and the nation at his Inauguration, including by Franklin Graham, whom Obama disliked and got ‘disinvited’ from Pentagon prayer breakfasts! The lady who prayed for Trump is said to have led him to the Lord (See this recent Washington Post item She Led Trump To Christ but ignore image!).

‘You may know Vice-President Mike Pence is evangelical and he and POTUS regularly meet Christian leaders for prayer. It’s never been known for Christians to have such free access to all areas of the White House as under this administration. (I often refer to the long-time accredited Christian journalist William Koenig, who’s based there.)

‘ALSO, did you know Reuters cut their film feed during DT’s campaign because he was wearing a tallit and being given a Jewish Bible at a black church?? (Read last section of this post.)

This news last Thursday from one of my regular readers was new to me: “…watching Sky news last night (can’t remember who reported) but they referred to President Trump as a wrecking ball. This immediately rang bells but couldn’t remember so googled and it was Lance Wallnau: Why Trump is ‘God’s Chaos Candidate’ and ‘Wrecking Ball’.’ (An interview only).’

Read Lance’s full prophecy in Isaiah 45, King Cyrus and Donald Trump (19 January). In addition, we learn that Donald Trump has highly significant godly ancestry!

TRUMP’S CONNECTION TO THE HEBRIDEAN REVIVAL

Just days before Trump was inaugurated BBC Songs of Praise from The Hebrides, off-shore from Scotland’s west coast, looked at his maternal ancestry on the Isle of Lewis – see Tongs of Praise… (sic) in The Scottish Sun, 11th January 2017.

In October, World Tribune staff published Desperate prayers by Trump’s great aunts in ‘sanctuary’ cottage said to spark Hebrides Revival in Scotland, its closing lines read:

‘An online post in the 2017 National Day of Prayer asked: “Coincidence or Holy Ghost? Not only did the revival reach the sisters’ Island in Scotland but the Hebrides Revival became known around the world. Little did they know that their nephew would one day become the President of the United States of America.”.’

Next, we’ll read Robin Main’s blog about it >> click to continue reading.

[NOTE: I’ve updated/corrected my notes accompanying John’s video blessing Trump as I had only minutes to go before leaving to watch our grandson in his school’s ‘Christmas Pageant’. On his 9th birthday he played God and his lines were taken from Genesis 1. As he delivered those lines classmates performed as stars, air, seas and earth coming together, plus animals and Adam and Eve. We thank the Lord for his healing after he was so badly afflicted all year that he wouldn’t have been able to take part in the play!]
