Back to Biblical Basics: The Day of the Lord

Thank you to Nicolas Barrett of All Along The Watchtower for kindly permitting me to publish his sermon notes for 30th June:

THE DAY OF THE LORD

Primary readings:
  • Joel 2:28-32
  • Revelation 6:12-17
1. Introduction

Series of events occurring at the end of our present Age in connection with the return of Christ and His Millennial reign

Occurs over an extended period, not a 24-hour day

  • Historical application of the Day of the LORD
  • Future application:
    • Day of destruction
    • Day of restoration
    • Day of vindication
    • Take away points
 2. Historical Application of the Day of the LORD
  • Judgment in Garden of Eden
  • Noah’s Flood
  • 10 Plagues of Egypt, Exodus, and Sinai
  • Fall of Israel to Assyrian forces: 722 BC
  • Fall of Nineveh: 612 BC
  • Sack of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar: 586 BC
  • Fall of Babylon: 538 BC
  • Crucifixion of Jesus Christ
  • Sack of Jerusalem by Romans: 70 AD

These days involve judgment, destruction, and a promise of restoration.

They point to the final, future, eschatological Day of the LORD when Jesus returns

Events of the past should give us confidence about the reality of the Day of the LORD when Christ returns

3.1 Future Application: Day of Destruction

Literal destruction in past points to literal destruction in future:

  • Literal supernatural judgments in the events of the Exodus
  • Literal battles and ends of empires
  • Miracles at the Crucifixion:
    • Darkness at noon
    • Tearing of the veil
    • First-fruits resurrection of Christ and the Jerusalem saints

Christ is coming to end the “times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21)

Our world suffers under misrule – human and satanic

Christ began to reverse the rule of evil at His First Advent

  • His Second Advent will complete the process

Christ will end the rule of the Antichrist when he returns and will pour out the judgment of God on the unbelievers as described in Revelation and other parts of Scripture

The destruction is necessary in order to remove control of the earth from the wicked and prepare the earth for rule by the righteous

3.2 Future Application: Day of Restoration
  • Kingdom restored to Israel (Acts 1:6)
  • Earth itself will prosper under righteous people
  • Non-resurrected people will have long life spans (Isaiah 65:20)
  • An end to war
  • Healing
  • First Resurrection at beginning of Millennium (Revelation 20)
3.3 Future Application: Day of Vindication
  • God
  • Christ
  • Church
  • Israel

God will be vindicated through Christ:

  • He who rejects the Father rejects the Son

Christ will be vindicated:

  • He will be accepted by the leadership of restored Israel
  • Survivors and converts will acknowledge that He is who He claimed to be
  • His faithfulness to Israel and the Church will be known
  • The unrepentant will curse God and Christ in the midst of the judgments – but they will know the truth deep down

The Church will be vindicated:

  • The Resurrection will occur
  • Those martyred in past ages and by the Antichrist will be raised
  • Christ will give government of the world to believers
    • This invites a comparison between the bad government of the present age and good government under the Church

Israel will be vindicated:

  • The world will know that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is God
  • The world will know that Jesus Christ is the King of Israel
  • Jerusalem will be the seat of world government and continue to be the destination of pilgrimage
4. Conclusion: Points To Take Away

What we do now matters

  • When Christ returns, He will reward his faithful followers
  • The opportunity to rule the earth during the Millennial reign of Christ is an amazing one
    • Put right the wrongs the world has suffered

We must have faith amidst adversity and suffering

  • Our suffering in this present age will be redeemed
    • Especially suffering for the Gospel
  • BUT we will not necessarily be vindicated in this lifetime
    • The return of Christ, Resurrection and Millennium must be at the centre of our theology of suffering

The wrath of God should be a consideration and motivation in our evangelism

  • Love your enemies
  • Wrath of God
  • Hell

Understand the signs of the times – the return will happen one day

Revival and the End-Times Harvest

Take all of these things into consideration when you pray

Back to Biblical Basics: direct Word on Jesus’ Return, and vision of Iran

At Tuesday morning’s coffee & cake meeting outside Haslemere, someone asked the worship leader to do some older songs. The first was new to me, but then came ‘These Are The Days of Elijah’ followed by Noel Richards’ famous song, so pertinent for today (courtesy paroles-musique):

“Great is the darkness
That covers the earth,
Oppression, injustice and pain.
Nations are slipping
In hopeless despair
Though many have come in Your name,
Watching while sanity dies,
Touched by the madness and lies.

[Chorus, verse 2 and chorus, then rejoicing in final verse:]

“Great celebrations
On that final day
When out of the heavens You come.
Darkness will vanish
All sorrow will end
And rulers will bow at Your throne,
Our great commission complete
Then face to face we shall meet:

Come Lord Jesus, come Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit we pray.
Come Lord Jesus, come Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

Whilst singing the chorus I noticed Nina look at me, then sit down, take paper out of her handbag and jot a short phrase. Her expression and shaky stance told me she’s being touched by the Holy Spirit. Afterwards, she told me that in the chorus she distinctly heard the Lord whisper in her ear, and thus in block caps (black ink) notes His words,

“IT’S SOONER THAN YOU THINK!!!”

Nina knows it’s not about any Revival but, as urged in the song, all about His Return.

+  +  +

I now ask, however, “Is that before, upon or after what we were soon to hear?”

The promise Nina heard becomes even more poignant by what the guest speakers from Elam Ministries reported on Christianity’s rapid growth through underground churches in Turkey and Iran, and thus moving rapidly towards the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:34-39 – the Judgement of Elam (Persia/Iran)

[WOWEE, I’m getting a very strong sense of ‘deja vu’ in what I’m doing, as though the event, situation and what I’m blogging has already been done: but this confirms it’s all God’s Timing!!!]

“I will set My throne in Elam, And will destroy from there the king and the princes,” says the Lord. (Jer 49:39 NKJV)

It was awe-inspiring to hear a young lady pastor’s account of life in jail after her house church was raided and closed. Also, that only last week an ex-Muslim 14 years-old boy had a vision of mosques in Iran tumbling down and being replaced by churches!

Afterwards, I mentioned this strongly reminded me of the declaration I heard announced from heaven of the “Fall of Islam”, and of the lightning strike upon the Grand Temple in Mecca on 14th anniversary of the attack upon New York’s towers (as recounted here and linked herein respectively).

So the Lord’s pointing us back to what His Word says about His Return….(next posts).

Urgent word for UK & NI on the mantle of Churchill and whirlwind of Wilberforce

In May and June last year Veronika West had two prophetic words relating the move of God in the UK to ‘The Whirlwinds of William Wilberforce’, the first was republished on this blog and the second on their drawing near, including prayer for the protection of Tommy Robinson, in His Kingdom Prophecy. (Recommend reading both before you proceed.)

Yesterday, she received further insights and posted two accounts in this sequence:

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND; THE MANTLE OF WINSTON CHURCHILL SHALL BE TAKEN UP IN THE MIDST OF THE WHIRLWIND OF WILBERFORCE…!

I heard the Spirit say, “WATCH! FOR THE WHIRLWIND OF MY SPIRIT IS NOW BLOWING FORTH UPON THIS NATION, WATCH! AS THE MANTLE OF WINSTON CHURCHILL IS TAKEN UP IN THE MIDST OF THE WHIRLWIND OF WILBERFORCE IN THIS NEXT SEASON…WATCH AND PRAY FOR MANY HAVE CRIED OUT “WILL THIS NATION BURN HOT ONCE AGAIN?” AND I SAY, WATCH FOR SURELY THE FIRES OF REVIVAL SHALL BURN AS THE HEART OF THIS NATION IS TURNED”..!

Veronika then quotes; ‘Suddenly the vision shifted again and I saw the nation as a wartime merchant ship which was sailing upon the high seas. As I looked at the merchant ship, the name WINSTON CHURCHILL was quickened to me in the vision’..! from the vision and word published in HKC.

Then a fuller word came soon afterwards:

W on W and W

A WORD FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND; “A WHIRLWIND OF MY GRACE WILL BRING FORTH GREAT CHANGE AND VICTORY OVER YOUR ENEMIES”..!

WATCH! WILLIAM WILBERFORCE AND WINSTON CHURCHILL SHALL BE A SIGN OF HIS ‘GRACE POURED OUT’ AND ‘VICTORY’ OVER OUR NATION…!

This afternoon as I was sitting meditating on the words God has given me in the last three years concerning the UK/BREXIT and the current political climate, I heard these words,

“MY WHIRLWIND OF GRACE SHALL BLOW FORTH UPON THIS LAND GIVING THE NATION OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND GREAT VICTORY OVER THEIR ENEMIES”..!

As I heard those words I saw Sir Winston Churchill with his famous “V” FOR VICTORY SIGN, and then I heard the sound of the Song “AMAZING GRACE” within the Whirlwind, this song was written by John Newton who worked alongside one of the greatest reformers of our time, William Wilberforce, who abolished the Slave Trade.

As I saw Winston Churchill and I heard the Sound of the Song of “Amazing Grace”, I knew the Lord was revealing to me how He is now moving strategically in our Nation at this critical time; HIS WHIRLWIND OF GRACE IS NOW BRINGING FORTH GREAT CHANGE AND VICTORY FOR OUR NATION.

Now as I stayed praying for the Nation and listening to the Spirit of God, it was quickened to me; ‘This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the LORD Almighty. 
“Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘GRACE, GRACE’ to it.
“The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you”, says God.’

AS I READ THAT POWERFUL VERSE, I HEARD HEAVEN DECLARE WITH A LOUD VOICE OVER GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND;

“IT’S NOT BY MIGHT NOR BY POWER BUT BY MY SPIRIT, WHO ARE YOU O GREAT MOUNTAIN THAT STANDS BEFORE THIS NATION, FOR YOU SHALL BECOME A PLAIN, LISTEN! GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND, AT THE SOUND OF THE SHOUTS OF GRACE, GRACE I SHALL BRING YOU FORTH, FOR SURELY MY HANDS HAVE LAID THE FOUNDATIONS OF THIS GREAT NATION AND MY HANDS SHALL ALSO BRING IT TO COMPLETION”!

See word I posted earlier (as above); “THE MANTLE OF WINSTON CHURCHILL SHALL BE TAKEN UP IN THE MIDST OF THE WHIRLWIND OF WILBERFORCE”…!

5th ‘jigsaw piece’: last week’s Glory Feast in He(a)rts

Continuing from he previous post’s ‘jigsaw pieces’ and trusting you’ve noted them:

5th Piece: GLORY FEAST 23-26 June 2019

The ‘spiritual fallout’ since 2nd May, when I sat in as merely an ‘observer’ – so I thought, to the first video team-conference for convening One Voice 8 Feb 2020: The Prophetic Voice, has been waiting and watching for confirmations that the ‘atomic glory-bomb’ I saw in 1992 was not only a true, rather than false, vision but also significant for today.

In having had an immediate confirmation and further elucidation from Veronika West as she listened to my brief account, I sensed the Lord may bring it into manifestation much sooner than next year. So, when I received notice exactly one month later of the event announced below, and that it immediately preceded the 27th anniversary of that vision of the Lord’s glory exploding in Britain, I then saw how His ‘cookie could crumble’ – that is, discerned a possible picture emerging as pieces of His ‘invisible jigsaw’ fall into place – and indeed they did:

Click image for details of April 2020 Glory Feast

Conference convener Robin Jegede-Brimson, about whose prophetic alliance in South-east England I cover here, has today posted on his Facebook news of what happened, plus several videos, at this Glory Feast in High Leigh, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire:

‘THE SWORD OF THE LORD IS BEING PLACED IN THE HANDS OF HIS WARRIOR BRIDE IN THIS SEASON, HIS BELOVED DAUGHTERS ARE NOW RECEIVING A FRESH OUTPOURING OF HIS ANOINTING AND HIS AUTHORITY TO WAR IN A NEW WAY, FOR A NEW DAY IN DAWNING UPON THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH!

‘THE GLORY OF THE LORD WAS SO HEAVY UPON ME AS THE SWORD FOR THE NATION WAS PLACED IN MY HAND I NEEDED TWO WOMEN TO HOLD ME UP; I BELIEVE THIS IS A POWERFUL PROPHETIC PICTURE OF WHAT GOD IS “NOW RELEASING” TO HIS BELOVED WARRIOR DAUGHTERS IN THIS HOUR, BY FAITH AS YOU CONNECT TO THIS POST RECEIVE, RECEIVE, RECEIVE WHAT THE LORD IS RELEASING, TAKE HOLD OF THE SWORD OF THE LORD AND BEGIN TO ADVANCE AND TAKE GROUND.

‘I hear the Spirit say, “MY BELOVED WARRIOR DAUGHTERS THE BATTLE IS RAGING BUT THE VICTORY IS ASSURED, ITS TIME TO ADVANCE, OCCUPY AND ESTABLISH MY KINGDOM PURPOSES UPON THE EARTH, FOR THE TIME OF BIRTHING HAS NOW COME”...! (Veronika West)

Continue to next posts for 6th and 7th ‘jigsaw pieces’.

‘Jigsaw pieces’ portray 27th June’s significance in modern prophecy

A number of things heard during our visit last Sunday to a church not far away started to bring not only a few apparently disparate matters together but also, in confirming a 27 years-old vision, draw them all together like pieces of the Lord’s invisible jigsaw.

First, therefore, let’s take a look at Habakkuk (chapter 2):

I will stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected.

Then the Lord answered me and said:

“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
 For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry…”

Let me hand you the pieces and in your imagination see how they fit together and wait on the Lord to reveal the pattern:

1st Piece: EMERGING LEADERS’ CONFERENCE

Today is the last day of this event convened jointly by Fleet Baptist Church and London School of Theology to host the International Leader’s School of Ministry conference led by John and Carol Arnott.  It is aimed exclusively at emerging leaders and Bible college students (from across UK and Europe), as well as those who are ready to start full-time ministry, or have recently started in ministry.

The ILSOM is renowned as a life-changing school and this 4-day event will train, equip and minister to those who have a desire to go deeper in the Lord. The teaching is also designed to help remove obstacles hindering our relationship with God.

Students are learning to hear God’s voice, know their heart is secured in His love, freed of hurts and oppression, and how to minister effectively with the Holy Spirit in the power and anointing of Jesus Christ. Therefore, it’s a time for restoration, renewal and refreshing where Father strengthens and brings revival in passion and vision for Himself and the call He has on one’s life.

2nd Piece: PASTOR’S ‘ATOMIC BOMB’!

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

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

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

3rd Piece: CONFIRMATION AND ANNIVERSARY

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

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

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

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

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

Today, 27th June is the 27th anniversary of my having that vision and, it seems to me, the scriptural significance of that number may be inferred from Paul’s doxology in Philippians 2 : Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Mathematically, 27 = 3 x 3 x 3, or three cubed (three to the power of three), suggests to me The Holy Trinity’s multiple power in all three realms of Creation.

4th Piece: JOHN ARNOTT on END-TIME REVIVAL

John prefaced his message based upon the fulfillment of Revelation 14:14 harvesting by referring to Smith-Wigglesworth’s prophecy of The Word and The Spirit: the time when there will be equal emphasis on teaching from scripture and experiencing Holy Spirit’s power and presence, so believers may thus be empowered to evangelise with signs and wonders following and bring the masses into salvation before the End-time’s judgement.

More ‘pieces’, or gems, were to emerge within John’s teaching, but these will suffice for today and you can listen to the entire message here.

So, I wonder if the ‘invisible’ picture being revealed by these few pieces is what Norman James, Wigglesworth’s prayer partner, saw in 1997 of the same vision for Britain that had left him speechless and his face radiant?

Therefore, all these pieces suggest that original vision is soon to manifest…and as in the above illustration a few more ‘pieces’ were yet to drop our of the ‘heavelies’, as told here, here and here.

Leisa Ebere: Urgent prophetic word for churches and government of the UK

At the top of this morning’s deep email in-tray is this from Leisa Ebere:

“Dear Richard, The Lord has a lot to say in regards to what is happening within His Body in this hour; and upon the Earth, and is speaking to me daily about His Will. In fact, He gave me this vision and message last night and I felt a great urgency to get this out to God’s People:”

SONS OF ISSACHAR PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 26 June 2019

I saw many thousands of Lambs being driven to the slaughterhouse; but then the Lord Jesus appeared with a staff and said:

“Wait, I will not allow the defiling of My Sheep any longer, and I am now closing down the abattoirs. For career shepherds with wrong motives and rigid hearts shall no longer be allowed a voice and no longer shall they be allowed to drive My Sheep to scorched and forsaken places. For I am raising up Lions to guard My Sheep, who shall extend sharpened claws and protest with roaring, thunderous voices born of My Spirit, and I say to you, that a changing world shall be the inevitable result.

“Watch My People rise,” saith the Lord, “for even offices of government shall feel the brightness of My Rising and a new man shall be placed in Leadership in the UK, an unexpected man,” says the Lord, “for I shall have My Way.

“Listen, can you hear the hands of time turning?” says the Lord, ‘I declare to you that time shall no longer race ahead without My intervention. For I shall put together the broken pieces of the alabaster jar and anoint My People to be as Sons of Issachar, proclaiming My Will and Glory in the days ahead,” says the Lord of Hosts.

Visions of England ablaze – and a holy whirlwind (GPS #34.2)

aurora-uk_2192580k_Image credit Telegraph

May I offer the following visions for your weighing with the Lord. Readers may recall previous posts on dreams and visions (eg. on Big Ben) received by Tony Puccio, a resident of Tucson, Arizona, on what he believes the Lord is about to do in England. Here’s the two latest:

1. ENGLAND ABLAZE, ANOTHER VISION (19th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I saw the following vision.

‘Imagine, if you will, the Olympic runner who runs with the torch and at the end of his/her run lights the flame for the beginning of the games.

‘With that said I saw England and it was dark. Then I saw what seemed to be Olympic runners seemingly descending from the sky each holding a torch. Again remember the ultimate purpose of the runner was to light the fire signaling the beginning of the Olympic games. However, in the Olympics only one lights a fire. In the vision, as I stated above, was dark but there were cauldrons, many of them. Each individual carrying a torch would use that torch to light the cauldron and that part of England would be lit. This was repeated by the other runners until all of England was ablaze.’

NB: This timing is interesting because it was 7 years ago when the Olympic Torch was carried throughout Great Britain & Northern Ireland for 70 days ahead of the Olympic Games of 2012.  In order to cleanse its pagan influence, it was preceded by an open-top bus on which praise and worship was sung, in which we participated as told here. Many readers may recall the two visions of fires Jean Darnall experienced in 1967 of groups of believers across Britain being struck by lightning bolts. Tony confirms the vision specifically relates to England alone in the UK. This is especially encouraging in view of what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2013 of its need to get in sync with the Lord’s purposes.

2. ENGLAND’S CHURCHES (20th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I once again was shown England. This time however, I saw what we would call in the States a tornado. This was a whirlwind that had both direction and purpose. I watched as the whirlwind would pass by a church and the church literally would be sucked into the whirlwind leaving the foundation exposed. This was repeated many times. This to me is reminiscent of Ezekiel prophesying in chapter 13 about the Lord tearing down the wall and exposing its foundation.’

Again, ‘coincidental’ timing is interesting in view of a posting dated 18th June in a Facebook Group and which I hope to be able to republish. 

Leisa Ebere: Signposts of Revival Prophecy

In her email of Saturday Leisa writes, “Please find a further Prophetic Word the Lord has given me on 12 June 2019 to encourage His people. Revival is so near and we must fervently and expectantly pray in this next great wave of His Spirit. Hallelujah!”

SIGNPOSTS OF REVIVAL PROPHECY

“The goodwill of harbingers is at hand. And so seven announcements shall be coming forth and released in a series of presences of My Spirit. For clearly signposts of revival shall appear in habitable spaces born of My Spirit and I shall release them upon My People to confirm My Will,” says the Lord:

1 – An authority to smite the enemy. 

2 – A song of deliverance to envelope the United Kingdom.

3 – Radiant & Overshadowing Miracles across several nations.

4 – A Spatial Awakening of the Body of Christ. This space inhabited by My Remnant shall be occupied, says the Lord of Hosts.

5 – Breezes shall turn into High Winds as conviction and weeping causes massive salvation numbers across many nations.

6 – A son of the Royal House of Windsor shall preach the gospel.

7 – A sanctification of many in the political arena across the UK, France and the USA shall come to pass.

“The extremities of man are shackled,” says the Lord, “as a spirit of deception keeps them tied to worldly injustices. Rise up My people and recognise My stamp of authority upon your lives. I have not called you to be ineffective, shy and retiring; but mighty through Me. Let the equipping begin as My Spirit goes forth,” says the Lord of Hosts.

For more delivered by Leisa Ebere tap/click here. The first prophetic word Leisa brought to my attention is God’s Mandate for the Prophetic Profiling of our Nation. This was followed directly by UK Nationwide Circuit Prophecies; the first of which for 2018 promises the Lord will give prophets “the ability to see clearly My numbers” – and Fulfilled Prophecy #38 refers!

Lana Vasa: a word from the Lord for prophets in their private battles

I trust many readers will be as encouraged to read this mighty prophetic word as am I (click title to access original on Lana’s website):

A WORD FOR PROPHETS THAT HAVE BEEN IN A FEROCIOUS, PRIVATE BATTLE!!
by Lana Vawser Ministries

The Lord spoke to me that many prophets have been in a private battle especially recently. Many prophets have been “fighting for their lives” and for their “mantle” behind closed doors of late. These private battles have left many feeling beaten down and broken. The Lord spoke to me that this word is not a corporate word for every prophet in the body of Christ, this is a word for those prophets who have been in a ferocious battle lately.

The Lord showed me that there has been a spirit of python that has been coming against many prophets to suck the life out of you, to suffocate you, to break you, to silence you and to completely take you out and hinder you from moving into what the Lord has destined for you that is just up ahead.

The Lord showed me that there have been this intense battles and opposition of the enemy against many of you to take you out, but also the hand of the Lord is moulding you and shaping you, preparing you for what you are about to release. See the Lord has been depositing things within you in the most broken place that you do not even realise He has been doing and He is about to decree a divine RESET. Continue reading

Should the Church be actively engaged in politics? South Africa gives a lead

In view of the on-going political upheaval here, Roger Jervois, who’s been keeping us updated on the political Ulster-Eire front, offers a Southern African perspective based upon his personal experience, on the value of the Church getting directly involved in politics.  It is particularly a-propos with my increasing political coverage, albeit from a prophetical stance. Roger writes,

‘I was born in then-Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, in 1963. There, the evangelical church was largely silent, with basically only the Catholics resisting the racist Rhodesian government. The evangelical Church largely stayed out of the political realm, to the great cost of the average person in latter decades.

‘After emigrating to South Africa, in 1986 I (reluctantly, to be honest) joined a very controversial church, Rhema Bible Church, Randburg under a fearless pastor Ray Macauley. The political climate was very difficult still, getting steadily worse – the Apartheid government was ruthless in dealing with criticism.

‘God spoke to Ray’s heart about getting involved in politics and changing the course of the nation. God said it was going to be very costly for him and the church in terms of public opinion, a fact which continues today. God sent many great men and women of God to confirm His word, in front of the congregation, which I personally witnessed.

‘As a church, we rallied around our pastor in obedience to the Holy Spirit. Thus we began to pray for the nation diligently, from 1988 onwards. God opened doors, and even the then-Minister of Finance, Barend Du Plessis, a newly born-again Christian of Afrikaans background, came and spoke briefly to the church, to tumultuous applause. It continued, and God led Ray to reach out further, and he did.

‘The result was a gathering in 1990, after months of intercession, of the extreme left-, centre- and right-wings of the Christian Church in SA at a place of great spiritual significance, Rustenburg – the first capital of the Transvaal Republic and bastion of Afrikaanerdom. It was known as the Rustenburg or Bishop’s Conference where the church leaders wept openly for what they had brought into the nation, asking God’s forgiveness. The result was the miracle turnaround in SA, which continues unto today.

‘Last weekend saw the inauguration of a convert of 20 years, from the very same Rhema Bible Church Randburg, take the oath of office as our State President. The Church in SA continues to be prodded by difficulties into praying for and interacting directly with politicians, to our greater benefit.

‘It is highly recommended that Christians engage with their authorities.’

Roger Jervois, 1st June 2019

PS 3rd June – ‘Just see this story, Richard > Thousands raised for petrol attendant hero (reply: Good to learn of a Godly guy helping a gal)

PPS 4th June – ‘Donations to the petrol attendant have now topped R460,000. Original target was R100,000. (His monthly salary would be around R5,000) > News24.com Shell-has-exciting-plans-for-nkosikho-mbele-the-petrol-attendant-who-went-the-extra-mile

‘This says a lot about race relations in SA, the fruit of the revival perhaps.’

“The eagle has landed on UK soil!”

Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: courtesy http://www.propheticartists.com

I’m grateful to Jeroma Davis for permission to publish the following from the discussion page of Facebook group Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival. As with all prophecy, it is offered for your prayerful weighing:

Blessings in Jesus name!

Holy Spirit You Speak….

I am hearing audibly that, “THE EAGLE HAS LANDED ON UK SOIL!”

I believe this is a very Prophetic Act/Timing for the United Kingdom.

The Anointing President Trump is carrying both UK/USA Connected. He was born of UK heritage and un-beknown to him will one day be Raised up to Align both countries for God’s purposes with ISRAEL in these END-TIMES.

I am Seeing the Eagle (USA President Donald Trump) in the sky soaring higher than usual with Strength and Power with a higher dimension of Wisdom-Insight-Vision-Revelation to steer the UK in her hour of need (re: Brexit).

What I am Seeing in the Spirit is the EYES OF THE EAGLE! sharper than usual and carrying an Anointing that will impact the Governmental disarray.

The Claws of its feet scratching the soil in the UK. I believe this Act signifies the Alliance with the USA and the UK will be rooted in one of UNITY and many CHANGES will take place that will affect every area of Secular Society!

I See the Eagle sitting on the Lion (USA/UK), steering her in the direction she should go!

This is where Godly Wisdom comes into play as the United Kingdom’s strength has been weakened considerably by the enemy’s strongholds!

I feel and sense strongly in my Spirit that this will be the turning point in the Body of Christ to Align now with the UK government and pray for the freedom and Sovereignty of this Nation once more!

I keep hearing that as the darkness grows the Light of God shines brighter and brighter but is only seen by those who dwell in that secret place of intimacy!

I hear that among the inner turmoil the CHAINS of bondage will break loose suddenly and swiftly!

The actual act of President Donald Trump stepping onto UK soil is the act of turning the soil of changes!

The UK’S atmosphere will never be the same as the Lion prepares to take back what is rightfully hers in the sight of God!

Even Ministries from the USA are pouring into the UK as they hear the Call to assist-rebuild-birth the Body of Christ in preparation for her Role in the End-time Harvest and as a Defender of ISRAEL!

Thank You Father!
You are Glorious!/loving God!
You will never leave us not forsake us!

PS: For info, one PRUKR member asks, “For my understanding and clarity, how is it that the Body of Christ aligns with the UK government rather than both aligning with Holy Spirit? Just wondering. Thanks.” Jeroma replies, “The body of Christ needs to Rise up now and Corporately pray for the UK’s Government to be reformed accordingly to Gods ways by Positioning Godly Counsel into the framework for the way forward.” 

RB Footnotes:
  1. See Spiritual Well of Revival in President Trump’s Bloodline with link to corrected information on his family background.
  2. Jeroma’s reference to seeing in the eyes of the Eagle reminds me of when a sister saw an eagle over my head and delivered an in-depth prophetic word about me, as recounted in Why write/blog?
  3. Her description of the Lion, symbolic of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, is similar to how Wendy Alec saw it in July 2005 during the final part of an extensive Vision for Great Britain under the following sub-head (underline added):
  4. THE GREAT JOINING OF THE LION AND THE EAGLE:

    “And there will be a great joining of the Lion and the Eagle – and even as the voices in the streets and the byways – the murmuring, the complaining of any alliance between the United States and Britain – so I tell you that these voices neither discern the times nor the purposes of the Living God – For even as the Eagle came to the Lion’s aid in times gone by – so I tell you that in this coming season – once again this alliance between the Lion and the Eagle shall be forged and the forge shall not be broken,”says the Lord,“because it is destined by Heaven.

    “And a great wave of prayer shall rise up from the East Coast of America through the heartland to the West – and that wave of prayer and intercession shall wash across Britain as a fiercely burning flame – and shall cleanse and protect – but in the years ahead – so the prayers of the saints in Britain shall rise and like a wave they shall spread across America – and preserve and protect – and a great joining shall occur and this joining shall not be the joining of man,” says the Lord “but the joining of Almighty God

    “And this nation shall return to its Christian roots – It shall RETURN to its Christian roots – and the glory of the Lion of Judah shall once more return and rest upon the Lion.

    “IF my people repent of the sins of this nation and humble themselves and pray.”

    With gratitude to the unknown creator of this splendid picture.

Veronika West: the Lion King of Glory is invading and shaking the nations

With the hour Veronika posted the following vision on her Ignite Ireland Ministry Fb. Having heard the angelic choir singing ‘All Hail The Lamb’, I’m absolutely sure what Veronika heard was utterly awesome. So we wait and continue watching the Shaking. (Her Fb follows with a vision of a dove landing on Donald Trump’s shoulder):

“WATCH!! FOR THE LION KING OF GLORY IS NOW INVADING THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”..

Then a powerful vision opened up before me where I saw the MIGHTY LION KING RUNNING THE LENGTH AND THE BREADTH OF THE EARTH, AS HE RAN SO THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH WERE SHAKEN VIOLENTLY, THEN I HEARD HIS MIGHTY ROAR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE GOING FORTH UPON THE WHOLE EARTH AND THEN SUDDENLY I SAW THE LIGHT OF HIS GLORY BREAKING FORTH UPON THE NATIONS, I SAW THE POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES OF DARKNESS TREMBLE AND FLEE AT THE SIGHT AND THE SOUND OF THE MIGHTY LION KING, THEN I WATCHED AS POWERFUL DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS BEGAN TO CRUMBLE AND FALL, I SAW THRONES OF WITCHCRAFT AND WICKEDNESS BEING OVERTHROWN AND OVERTURNED. THEN I HEARD THE SOUND OF A MULTITUDE OF ANGELS BEGIN TO SING OVER THE NATIONS,

“BEHOLD THE MIGHTY LION KING OF JUDAH WHO RULES THE HEAVENS WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE NOW ARISES OVER THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”’!!

BE EXPECTANT!! Many will begin to have divine encounters with the Lion of Judah He is revealing Himself to His servants, His friends in this hour, He is REVEALING TO BRING FORTH AN ACCELERATION OF HEALING AND REPENTANCE TO THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.
