Triple validation of Jesus’ night-time visitation

A little time was needed to gain a fuller understanding of that awesome visitation – the absolute holiness of the Lord Jesus Christ in contrast to my personal sinful nature. No wonder I expected to die and was convicted of my sin!

That encounter used two very personal aspects of my life to grab my attention, thereby validating the experience as real, not an imaginary one. Even more amazingly, both validations are directly related to the 1st and 2nd Advents!  Thus, they couldn’t fail to enhance my interest in End-Times and which had been launched a few years earlier by The Invisible Hand (described here).

The First Advent was the time when Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea about two thousand years ago. Hence, the four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and which start the church year.

The Second Advent is coming soon and is expected to begin in the city of Jerusalem.

FIRST VALIDATION

I inwardly ‘knew’ the heavenly visitor was indeed Jesus, and that the impressive action was a foretaste of his promised return, when He will come in all His power and glory.

The event reminded me of my favourite picture in mother’s Missal, or service book of the Roman Mass.  This gave the content of every Sunday service throughout the year with a diagram symbolising the theme for each service.  As a boy keen on astronomy I’d been fascinated by the picture for First Sunday in Advent. This depicted Jesus standing on the clouds over a burning earth in the midst of sun, moon and falling stars, indicative of events before his Second Advent!

30 years ago last night Jesus stopped me dropping into Hell

Upon awaking 30 years ago today (14th September 1989) I knew events in the early hours had been a landmark in my destiny. The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But the night had been spent at my childhood home at 212 E___ Rd, Stockport, to undergo a life-changing event.

In a most unusual dream that night I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that even thirty years later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what happened (dream content blue font, comments are in black italics).:

30 years ago tonight I shut the door on God’s Good News…

‘Twas a fateful day written in my destiny – perhaps in heaven too?

The evening of 13th September 1989 I entertained a young man, barely an adult, only to end up discretely disagreeing!

I didn’t know a false gospel had lured me to the Devil’s Door. It wasn’t a normal door but a trapdoor and about to be sprung with me standing on it! In abject terror I groaned “My number’s up!” because I’d unexpectedly and suddenly come to the end of my life!

What’s more, I was absolutely terrified to realise hell’s now below me and I’d be heading down there – even though I didn’t believe in it! I was wrong – so badly wrong!!

Being anti-Christian had been a serious mistake – but it was now far too late! Yet I’m now able to tell this true story purely for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How did I get there you may ask. And, how on earth did I get out of it?

To recap briefly the story thus far, as told in I’m Free!, we return to the fine evening of Wednesday 13th September 1989:

Leisa Ebere: The Edge of Revival Prophecy

Since publishing her ‘no-deal’ Brexit revelation (notably significant in registering 212 direct views at the moment), Leisa advised me to revisit Jarrod Cooper’s prophecy, and I recall a prophet’s recent, risky word that’s open for early confirmation of accuracy.  It speaks of a UK-Eire deal by the New Year. Late last night Leisa writes with more:

‘Sorry to add a bit more Richard, but the Lord has been speaking to me for hours tonight and here is more of what He has said:

THE EDGE OF REVIVAL PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere 11/09/19

“I stand at the edge of the landscape of many nations and see transformation,” says God. “Hatred and Division shall be no more as the imprint of My Spirit makes an indelible impression upon My Remnant and they forge ahead with My Presence and My Authority and bring My mercy, patience and love across the nations of the Earth. My trumpet is sounding as my armies are being assembled,” says the Lord. “And My ways shall not be scrutinized by Man, as critical eyes and complaining tongues seek to understand things of the Spirit in natural ways. Align your spirits and minds with My Purposes and all will become clear.”

Leisa Ebere: ‘No-deal’ Brexit Revelation

Upon informing Leisa of my publishing the Declaration of Change Prophecy, she replied immediately as follows and, as usual, readers are to weigh personally with the Lord:

‘Thanks Richard, I had a definite revelation from the Lord on 04/09/19 (before the government vote) concerning Boris Johnson and the No Deal Brexit proposition. But as with all political revelations from the Lord, it will seem controversial to some. So please let me know if you don’t feel you wish to publish it?

‘The Lord showed me with some degree of urgency from the Holy Spirit… that the No Deal Brexit orchestrated by Boris Johnson and his followers, is actually a Sanballat manoeuvre and a distraction from the enemy, and that it has been causing confusion and strife within the Body of Christ and the UK.

‘He further showed me, that He will be providing a way for the UK to leave the EU; but that the time is not yet; and that if this is forced through… it will be damaging to the UK.

‘He also showed me a few days later, that there was pressure being exerted upon Boris Johnson to force the No Deal Brexit through, and I sensed these outside sources had a definite agenda. And I saw by the spirit, money being passed under a table.

‘Furthermore, the Lord showed me that His will was for us to follow the Norway Model in order for the UK to separate themselves from the EU. For this will enable us to keep open means of communication to have an influence on trade, communication and indeed travel, as the UK acts as a springboard country for revival across the Nordic and European nations in the future.’

[My reply: Yes this is v. important for I’m only too aware of that confusion in the faithful. I have no problem with being controversial and have been taken to task for it, but I’m a watcher and disseminator. It’s for readers to weigh and discern and, when able, I check which words have proved accurate, or are on course for being fulfilled.]

Leisa Ebere: Declaration of Change and Transformation

In her email of last Friday 6th September Leisa writes, “God is doing a new and mighty thing in our mist, and we must ready ourselves for a phenomenal change; which God will cause to happen in order to bring about a mighty harvest across the Earth in this hour.  Please find the Powerful Word the Lord gave me this week concerning this:

DECLARATION OF CHANGE PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 04/09/19

“The diagrams of church are changing to break the pride and traditions of men,” declares the Lord. “My Holy Spirit has been entrapped like a wild beast in many parts of My Body and only allowed out for entertainment or self-proclaimed reasons,” says the Lord, “and I say to you in this hour, I will not be contained. 

“I am in the wind and the desert, in the oceans and in the mountains; and My power shall transform the Earth and cause a new template of gathering to be birthed amongst My People. For I am looking for pioneers,” says the Lord, “those who will go to obscure places and establish My Truth,” says the Lord. “And a springing up of new blooms shall cover the fields as My Harvest takes root, and I declare that an ever-increasing change shall abide across this land and many nations of the Earth. My Staff and Rod are at work,” says the Lord of Hosts, “prepare yourselves for change!”

The first prophecy Leisa brought to my attention is God’s Mandate for the Prophetic Profiling of our Nation, followed by the UK Nationwide Circuit Prophecies; the first of which for 2018 promises the Lord will give His prophets “the ability to see clearly My numbers” – Fulfilled Prophecy #38 refers!

GPS #37 – Vision of The Shaking and of The Rock

Yet another of God’s ‘Global Prophecy Signals’! 

After having blogged on Monday about the Lord setting up His plumbline in our nation I espied this new item on Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival from Joanna Kinch, who kindly permits my republishing. (Note its ‘coincidental’ publication with my item):

‘Given 09/09/2019 – I saw a picture of two large long cracks in the earth, which is a fault line and this is what Yahweh revealed:

“I am going to send shock-waves through the land. There is a fault line.

“My church will be shocked, her foundations will shake, but that which is built on the Rock will stand. That which is built on My Son and My Words will stand. Everything else will shake, rattle and roll into the pit..”

The  preceding text and pictures instantly took me back to the open vision I had in front of me as worship started at a conference in St Albans in 2004. Most perplexed by its associated words I thought came from the Lord, I referred this to the presiding pastor and his guest speaker, but neither were able to comment. When I shared it the next year with Revd Dr Sharon Stone, she immediately confirmed it as being of the Lord.

To Joanna, however, I commented on PRUKR Facebook, “Seems to tally with the Amos 7:7 word I had on Sunday, published 9.9.19”, to which she replied, “…goes alongside. Get ready. This is serious business.”

“It sure is Joanna and alongside many prophecies over recent years of a great shaking – even the open vision I had 15 years ago of Great Britain on rotten old jute sacking and the Lord whispering “The fabric of society is so rotten I can tear it apart”. As I watched it start to rip down the middle, where the ‘backbone’ of the Pennines is, I saw a huge, divine rock slowly emerge.”

[Full account and details of vision in Comments upon the ‘Collapse of Society’, 2011]

Therefore, my readers you may well wish to again weigh and test prophetic words…

ALERT: Boris Johnson and Leo Varadkar are meeting now – Declaration for birthing a Nation

When I broke for lunch I popped TV on to check for any film to record BUT happened to see breaking news of Leo Varadkar start his welcoming speech to Boris Johnson upon his arrival in Dublin to discuss Brexit’s ‘backstop’ issue. SO it’s a good time to pray that satanic spirit’s be silenced and the Lord be in the midst of their deliberations and that both nation’s prime ministers be completely open to being directed by His Holy Spirit, and thus align with and allow Father’s will being done throughout the British Isles as it is in heaven.

Also, here is today’s declaration from Passion For The Nation:

BIRTHING A NATION

Whether we remain or leave the EU, and whatever the eventual timing, we stand on the brink of a new season for this land.  So, we come into agreement with God’s word,

‘The Government shall be on His shoulders, and He will be called, Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of His Government and peace there will be no end…  (Isaiah 9:6)

We declare God is birthing a new season for the United Kingdom, and we acknowledge Him as the Highest authority in Heaven and earth. In the Name of Jesus, we decree the God-given sovereignty and order of governmental authority for the United Kingdom will be established.

We declare the sound of the Name of Jesus will be heard in the heavenlies and upon the earth, and we raise the sound of the victory of Jesus over our nation, over every success, every failure, every fear and every confusion concerning the future of this land.

We stand as the Ecclesia in this nation and speak convergence and completion, that the new season for this nation will be birthed according to every blueprint and timing held in Heaven, in Jesus’ Name.

GPS #36.6: Day for Prayer for Britain – God’s scarifying the church and nation

Whilst publishing the latest addition to this series (#36.5) I was amazed to receive yet another ‘signal’, this time from Paul Clift whose climactic key to his vision of Brexit-EU spiritual tug-of-war, which confirmed a vision Veronika West had earlier, was recently echoed by the Press. Moreover, it’s sequencing is the Lord’s timing, as noted below.

Again, the reference to Godly oversight in prophecy is noteworthy, as Paul writes,

‘I am very surprised to be sending you another word for your consideration. I do not have a calling to the office of a prophet, but God can use any of us at anytime to do things we do not expect to do. We just have to be open to Him.  Our church, Kings Church Halifax, had a prayer meeting last Saturday morning in parallel with Prayer for the Nation organised by David Hathaway. One week earlier as I was in my garden, the Holy Spirit spoke to me as I was scarifying my large lawn. He said it was for the prayer meeting last Saturday.

‘I read the prophecy on Saturday morning. At the Senior Leaders Team (SLT) meeting we had on Monday morning the prophecy was discussed…Tonight is the first ‘church at prayer’ mid-week session in the series…The SLT have asked me to read the prophecy again tonight so that as a church we can pray into it’

With the prophecy in blue font, the paper Paul encloses reads: 

Received on Saturday 24th August 2019 While Scarifying My Lawn

‘The Holy Spirit started talking to me about scarifying. The lawn looks fine, but very slowly over time debris builds. This is usually from mowing the lawn because not all the lawn cuttings are caught by the box on the mower. Also, in some regions, such as where we live, the soil is acidic and this encourages the growth of moss. After applying moss-killer the lawn needs to be scarified to remove all debris. Holes need to be punched in the lawn through a process called tining so that air, water and fertiliser can penetrate deep into the lawn to revitalise it. This will promote strong growth especially in the roots. Over a period of time the lawn will become very healthy.

‘Immediately after scarification the lawn looks terrible, especially if a lot of debris and moss has had to be removed. The amount of debris removed from my lawn on that Saturday was over 2 full compost bins. The lawn looked really brown, but I knew from past experience that in a few weeks time the lawn would look really good and would be strong and healthy.

“At this time I am scarifying the church and this nation. There is much that is dead within the church and it is strangling new growth, in some cases suffocating any life that exists within itself. The same is true in the lives of many Christians because debris has been allowed to build, so growth is stunted and for some the life has gone.

“You are to be in the world but not of the world. You have allowed the ideas and thinking of the world to influence and infiltrate you rather than you influencing and infiltrating the world. My word to you is to come out from among them and be separate. This is a time to let my Holy Spirit get deep down into your spirit, soul and mind so you can be cleansed. It is a time to repent and respond. If you confess your sin He is faithful and just to forgive your sin and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

“I am also scarifying the House of Commons, the House of Lords, the Civil Service, the Royal Family, the Police Force and Big Business. I will bring to light that which appears to be buried. However, nothing and no-one will evade me,” says The Lord. “I have called this nation to come out from among them and be separate. The seemingly green and pleasant lawn does not look very appealing after scarification, but it is a necessary process to prepare this nation for what needs to be done. Church, will you rise up and partner with me in this time to fulfill the destiny of this nation or will you let this opportunity slip through your hands?

“It takes 2 or 3 months for the scarified lawn to start to recover. It is not a pleasant sight during this time. But if the lawn is tined and fed then the signs of growth and recovery start to take place. Just as it is with the lawn, so it will be with this nation. The next 2 to 3 months will not be a pleasant sight but then small signs of recovery will start to take place. It will take 2 to 3 years for this nation to fully recover, but it will go on from strength to strength.”

Note: A normal solar year is 365 days, but a leap year is 366 – as with 2020. Now look at the sequential number in the above title of this blog’s posting!  (‘GPS’ sequencing began in December 2016.) Therefore, isn’t this another part of the Lord’s invisible jigsaw puzzle?

Leisa Ebere: Paradigm shift for the UK – warning prophecy to leaders

Leisa writes on Saturday, “The Lord gave me this strong prophetic word yesterday. A paradigm shift is about to descend upon this nation and we need to be declaring God’s goodness and sovereignty across the UK. Here is the Word.:

THE LEADERS PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 2nd August 2019

The Lord says that, “The pride of the leaders of this nation has caused blockage to blessing ordained by My Sovereign Hand. For surely, as in Nebuchadnezzar’s time, there is witchcraft within the city gates, which has caused a stubbornness of heart amongst the people,” says the Lord. “And rash decisions even now are being made by leaders, which are not aligned with My Kingdom’s advancement. The darkness of mind that came in the form of boanthropy upon that Babylonian king was allowed through open doors because of pride, witchcraft and tolerance of evil; and so shall a similar fate happen to those leaders that oppose My Divine Purposes in this hour across the nation of the United Kingdom. My People, rise with an expectancy of a New Day and let your tongues be active with declarations of righteousness and breakthrough for My Will to be performed across this land. Cast aside all doubt and keep your eyes fixed upon Me. For surely, I am separating and I am choosing men and women of purpose and destiny. Do not listen to doomsayers; but declare My goodness and walk into destiny as all decisions are made according to the leading and movement of My Spirit,” says the Lord of Hosts.

Bless you,

As with all prophetic words and visions, the above is offered for weighing and testing with the Lord and holy writ.

Back to Biblical Basics: events leading into Jesus’ Return

This post appears in the hub About Signs and is the reference copy of the continuation of The Who, Why, When and What of Watching, published in February 2018.

In continuing our trilogy on getting back to Biblical basics, arising from having heard “It’s sooner than you think!!”, the following ‘signs’ foretell events indicative of Jesus Christ’s return to rule and reign upon earth:

Omitting signs that apply to the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 (Note 1) and those recorded by Apostle John in his book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, this selection is compiled from the earliest Gospel (Mark 13), augmented by Matthew (24) and Luke (17 & 21), plus extracts from Paul’s letters to believers in Corinth and Salonika, to whom he told the origin of his teaching – ‘For this we say to you by the word of the Lord…’ .: Continue reading

God’s humour in mechanic’s miracle and at atheist’s expense!

The Sunday evening before last we heard how God miraculously provided about 1,300 large bread cakes from only 200 that pastor Christopher Bird had taken to a Ugandan orphanage, but to which 500 children had walked for hours for food to feed them over the week!  Next he took the left-overs to other places and watched everyone getting fed from what he’d originally brought. Only 7 loaves were left, which were for the 7 servers.

ELECTRO-MECHANICAL MIRACLE

Next, a group told him on a Sunday morning they’d take him Monday to a neighbouring nation – but he needed to apply for an entry visa. So he had to get two visa-size photos on a Sunday afternoon in Kampala – but there was a city-wide power blackout!

He saw a 50-years old photo-booth on a pavement and spoke to its attendant who said it was unplugged because of the outage. Chris told him the God who created electricity and gave mankind the ability to harness it and power machines would make it function properly. He thus prayed loudly to the Lord and a crowd began to gather.

Upon sitting in the booth and drawing the curtain, four flash lights went off and colour photos appeared right away!

PROBLEM: it was a black-and-white only camera and took minutes to print photos:

RESULT: colour photos and so attendant mechanic shouts, “I now follow Jesus!”

ARROGANT ATHEIST ANSWERED

Two weeks ago today came news of Felix Ngole’s landmark legal victory for freedom of speech and my posting was reblogged on All Along The Watchtower, where it attracted a lengthy debate – but not upon the details of the case. A new commentator is pleased this ruling allows for engaging with believers for the purpose of enlightening them on how “ridiculous and erroneous” the Bible is!!  Therefore, he or she demanded evidence for and repudiated Christians’ claims, especially for Jesus and the Resurrection.

It is amusing that their next and many attempts to answer a moderator’s request for background details didn’t get published and caused some consternation. Meanwhile, moderator mused, “Maybe God didn’t like what you wrote?”  Eventually, comments were found in the WordPress software’s trash can!

As the site is a God-fearing one then He probably considers those contributions serve only the hater of humanity. Also, the Lord was yet to have a further, amusing play with this person’s mockery.

That their comments are hidden by anonymity, are arrogant, devoid of manners as well as demonstrating a completely closed mind, renders their arguments invalid. So the bin is where they belong!

In choosing an avatar icon and name that I was familiar with when an unbeliever active in its ungodly realm, I discerned the issue and offered my testimony as a witness to the Lord for their further investigation.

I was met with, “I suggest you keep looking out for those signs of Jesus’ return, And while you are waiting why not read the bible? All of it”  I replied the Lord is our judge and wasted no further time with this lost soul but pray he, too, has a radical encounter with Him.

That was happening whilst I had a hard-copy of Neil’s paper on End-times to peruse, and had just got Nicholas’ sermon notes (previous posts refer). I mentioned them to my wife but she doesn’t closely follow my blogging and was unaware of all the details.

I’ve now realised the Lord gave Nina the audible word about His return, “It’s sooner than you think!!!”, as though answering that mocking atheist in His own way – as the adage goes: ‘He who laughs last, laughs longest!’

Next, we’ll take a fresh look at the events Jesus told us to watch out for
