Prophecy Update 2: press reports ‘no deal’ Brexit is ‘back from the dead’!

LATEST NEWS noted on Telegraph online in this posted at 2:17 pm under headline (my emphases),

Brexit Essentials: how a no-deal Brexit has come back from the dead – ‘If there’s one thing we do know about Parliament it’s that it really doesn’t like the idea of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. MPs have voted against it on three separate occasions. None of those was legally-binding, but it did seem that last week MPs really had killed the idea off – they would force Theresa May to get a long Brexit extension or, at worst, back her deal, leaving ‘no-deal’ dead and buried.’

‘Yet now, ‘no-deal’ is hauling itself out of the grave and stalking the House of Commons once again. How has that happened? The answer lies within the Conservative Party.

‘Time and again, the PM has shown that she will choose party unity over anything else. Theresa just does not want to be the Prime Minister who split the Conservative Party for good. So this week, even though there was no sign of MPs backing her deal at the third time of asking, and a long delay to Brexit seemed to be the only option left, she caved to her party’s demands and asked for only a short extension.

‘Theresa probably didn’t even want a long extension. It was a useful tool to scare her backbenchers into supporting her. But it looks like the scare she gave them was too good, and instead of meekly surrendering, her MPs have come out swinging…’

This claim is closely (ie. not by direct, literal reference) related to what Veronika West prophesied on 8th January and reiterated last Friday, 15th March about a death being reversed. A copy of each follows for ease of reference. (Introducing the latter I observe it makes “an exceptional word to test in the near future as to its accuracy!”): Continue reading

GPS #30.1: Mighty army told to “March Forth!” (on March fourth)

Monday 4th March saw the start of Lent Week of Prayer at the church we attend. One of its aims is to refocus our lives on all God has for us and give an opportunity to get rid of clutter hindering our relationship with Him. To help us in this, thematic displays had been set up for contemplative prayer in the chapel. We arrived at the same time as the rector for Monday evening’s prayers, but after having led a long worship and prayer session on his guitar he needed to leave for an appointment…

However, Nina’s email of Tuesday morning updated him on what happened…

WELL, WHAT NEXT!

‘Dear Val, Thank you for the wonderful worship yesterday evening. It was very special. Then you left the 3 of us and then……….!!!!!!!!

‘We carried on praying for a short while and then I had an extraordinary picture which I shared with Richard and N because I knew it was important.

‘It was in black and white and was a scene from an old war movie. The pilots were sitting around outside, by the Nissan huts, waiting for the alarm call so they could jump to attention and get into action [‘Scramble!’ thinks Richard].

‘As I spoke this N suddenly said, “That was the Battle of Britain!”   Britain is in another battle right now so we prayed on for a short while. Then I said, “We need to remember the picture and the date”. Suddenly N said, “March Forth!”

‘He didn’t say it is the fourth of March or March the fourth, he said “March Forth!” [Each of us intuitively knew that difference.]

‘By then we were standing and agreed that as members of The Lord’s Army we needed ears to hear His clarion call and ACT!

‘Richard added that this all confirms what he’d read earlier on the very same topic’!

And here’s what I’d read that day on Ignite Ireland Ministries FB:

WATCH! THE ARMY OF GOD IS NOW ARISING…….!!

‘The Spirit of God says, “WATCH AND PRAY BELOVED, STAY ALERT AND PAY ATTENTION FOR THE WOLF IS AT THE DOOR, YES! THE ENEMY COMES TO ROB, STEAL AND DESTROY IN THIS HOUR….!”

‘FRIENDS, I SEE THE POWERS OF DARKNESS INCREASE IN THIS HOUR, BUT I ALSO SEE AN INCREASE, ACCELERATION AND MANIFESTATION OF GREATER GLORY, SUPERNATURAL POWER, GREATER AUTHORITY, SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES TAKING PLACE ACROSS THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

‘I SEE AN UNSTOPPABLE AND AN UNQUENCHABLE FIRE OF THE HOLY GHOST MOVING SWIFTLY ACROSS THE NATIONS, THE POWERS OF EVIL AND DARKNESS CANNOT AND WILL NOT HINDER NOR DIMINISH IT.

‘I SEE A MIGHTY ARMY OF RADICAL, FEARLESS FREEDOM FIGHTERS RISING UP IN THIS HOUR THEY ARE NOT DETERRED NOR DISTRACTED BY THE SCHEMES OF SATAN. THEIR POWER, STRENGTH, SKILL AND STEALTH COMES FROM BEING DEEPLY ROOTED AND ESTABLISHED IN CHRIST JESUS. THE WEAPONS OF THEIR WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL BUT POWERFUL TO THE PULLING DOWN OF EVERY STRONGHOLD AND DEMONIC STRUCTURE IN THE LAND.

‘THESE ARE THE RADICAL ONES, ANOINTED AND APPOINTED BY GOD TO PURSUE, PUSH BACK, OVERTHROW AND OVERTAKE EVERY POWER OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION, THEY WAR NOT FROM THE REALMS OF DOUBT, FEAR AND TIMIDITY BUT THEY WAR IN THE REALMS OF SUPERNATURAL FAITH, COURAGE, HUMILITY AND VICTORY, WITH THE TWO EDGED SWORD IN THEIR MOUTHS THEY ARE WISE WITH THEIR WORDS ONLY SPEAKING FORTH LIFE, LIBERTY AND VICTORY.

‘THEY WALK IN THE SHOES OF PEACE AND PROSPERITY, THEY COMMAND HEAVENLY ANGELS TO COME AND TO GO, THEY LOVE NOT THEIR OWN LIVES EVEN UNTO DEATH, THESE ARE THE GLORY CARRIERS OF HEAVEN, NEW LIFE, HEALING, HOPE AND MANIFEST PROMISE FLOWS FORTH FROM THEIR BELLIES, THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD GOES BEFORE THEM MAKING STRAIGHT THEIR PATHS AND ILLUMINATING THEIR WAY, ACCELERATED AND MOBILISED BY THE SPIRIT OF MIGHT AND POWER THESE BRAVE HEARTS MOVE WITH GREAT ACCURACY AND WITH SPIRITUAL VISION AND PRECISION THEY TAKE THE LAND.

‘I SEE SATAN AND HIS DEMONS FLEE IN A THOUSAND DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS WHEN THESE GLORY CARRIERS STEP UPON THEIR TERRITORIES, THESE DEMONS OF DARKNESS KNOW THEY CANNOT STAND AGAINST THE POWER OF THEIR UNITY AND AGREEMENT IN THE SPIRIT.

‘LISTEN!! I HEAR THE SOUND OF GREAT VICTORY AND JUBILEE!!’

AND sitting in the morning’s email in-tray is this from Glasgow Prophetic Centre:

LION BITES Tuesday 5th MarchARISE!

The Spirit of the Lord says, “Arise, arise, arise and put on the armour of the Lord. My children, I desire for you to become a mighty army in my name. Listen to the voice of your God because I have not hidden you in the shadows. I have called you to shine and to let the world see who I truly am. Let them see who I have called you to be – my ambassadors, truth tellers, a mighty and holy nation, miracle workers in my name, atmosphere changers, and carriers of my presence and glory. You are gateways for heaven to move through. Now arise and be bold; take hold of the authority that I have given you. Truly, I say to you ARISE.”

Isaiah 60:1
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.

Jesus Christ’s teaching: Foundation for Life — Fellowship of the Secret

Here my namesake covers verses that often nudge me because not only do they follow Jesus’ instruction not to judge one another and point the finger, but also the version at Matthew 7:21-27 brings a stern admonition that’s personally pertinent: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord’, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you, depart from Me you who practise lawlessness!”

Here’s what Richard has to say n the Lucan version:

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when…

GPS #29: “The Day of Reckoning is now upon the Church”

What I’d blogged last week can now be seen as the conjunction of a ‘God-incidence’, or God’s GPS (Global Prophecy Signals), on the parable of the wheat and the tares:

  • Wed 27th Feb: republished prophetic insight brought by Chris Bennett on chapters 34 and 37 of Ezekiel as being applicable ‘now’, which includes: “I WILL SHAKE MY CHURCH FIRST TO EXPOSE THE BAD AND TO THEN BUILD UP THE GOOD. IT IS THE BEGINNING OF SEPARATING WHEAT AND TARES, AND THE BEGINNING OF JUDGEMENT, FOR DOES MY WORD NOT SAY THAT JUDGEMENT SHALL BEGIN WITH MY CHURCH?”
  • Thurs 28th Feb: 10th anniversary of when the wheat and tares time-bomb blew up and I inwardly hear “This is ALL about to be fulfilled’.
  • Friday 1st Mar: Veronika West posts the above text-image on her Facebook.page Ignite Ireland Ministries.

So yes please Lord, let’s see it happening at long, long last because it’s You who’s re-building Your ekklesia. Yet, I bless you Lord that the deep divisions decades ago which made me reject you and seek truth in the ‘new age’, were actually within Your purposes and plans for my life and destiny in You.

In view of recent perturbations within His Bride across the United Kingdom it was very timely and a heartening reminder to hear the visiting speaker at church, and leader of Iris Global in India, distinctly emphasise,

“Nobody died so that we may judge!”

10 years ago: ‘time-bomb’ in my Bible blew up in my face!

Wanting to verify Peter’s grousing about John’s grasp of Jesus’ parable ‘the wheat and tares’, I grabbed my Bible to look at the Gospel of Matthew…BUT IT BLEW UP IN MY FACE! – metaphorically, that is.

I’d opened it many times before without that ever happening. Had someone sneaked into the house overnight, cut and scooped out the inside of my thick tome and put a pressure-sensitive stick of spiritual dynamite inside?? Or, had some clever being, the Holy Spirit even, already known when I’d be checking on a topic that’s churning around within my mind – a specific simile on the Kingdom of God – and arranged for me to be zapped at that precise instant?

This time upon opening it, however, a supernatural flash exploded within my mind. It didn’t go >>BANG<<  but EXCITEMENT EXPLODED within my spirit as I heard,

“THIS  IS  ALL  ABOUT  TO  BE  FULFILLED!”

That unforgettable, formative event had its origin in 2008’s controversial ‘outpouring’ led by Todd Bentley at Lakeland, Florida. We’d known of him from a few years earlier and had attended an inspiring conference in Dudley where he’d taught in depth on the Holy Spirit as he energetically motored through the Bible for over 10 hours daily!  However, in 2008 he allowed personal sin to overtake him and thus stumbled from grace; but ‘good Samaritan’ Rick Joyner came alongside to direct and assist in his restoration. A part of the problem was Todd’s failure to be accountable, despite the efforts of his Canadian church’s leadership.

At that time Peter Horrobin, director of Ellel Ministries, was staunchly opposed to what was happening and the ‘lassez-faire’ (my term) attitude of N. American churches’  top leaders. John Arnott of Toronto was of the opinion the Lord would deal with it, as may be inferred from the parable of the wheat and tares – but Peter firmly disagreed with such a flimsy handle on an important part of pastoral and spiritual oversight.

On top of that controversy I’d been noticing since the attack eight years earlier on the twin towers in New York a few things happening that were biblically related. So, after my inner explosion I began taking those things more seriously and realised the need for more Christians to become aware of the prophetical implications of scripture.

Therefore on 28th February 2009, 10 years ago today, I emailed friends and the church leaders whom I knew personally, as follows:

THE ENDGAME IS NOW IN PLAY

‘Dear Friends – further to Rev’d Bill Smith’s recent request re Christian Freedom, may I offer some observations upon our times and, in another message, suggest a way forward?

‘Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt13:36). So I went to check scripture but upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW!!

‘Hence, my previous remarks about a sifting of the Church – in preparation for a rapid ‘sHifting’? Jesus urged His disciples to look out for and observe signs of the times. Regarding their questions about His return at the end of this Age, the earliest Gospel account has Jesus stressing 7 times, Watch…be alert…on your guard (Mark 13). Matthew 24 reports Jesus saying 4 times, Watch…and when you see…” followed by the parables of the burglar and of the virgins:> “Don’t be caught napping!” [Is the Church still asleep?] Luke’s account has, “Be always on the watch…” (ch21:36) and chpt 12 (NIV) has sections on watchfulness and interpreting the times. In each Gospel Jesus commands, Learn the lesson of the fig tree…”. Also, the Apostles went on to give more indicators (Acts 3:20-1, Hebrews 12:26-7, 2 Peter 3, 2 Timothy 3 and the first and second letters to the Thessalonians).

‘Have you studied or read/heard/given any teaching on this topic lately? So, let’s watch closely what’s happening here and globally…’

That two-part email continued by drawing attention to:
  • case of a nurse who was sacked for praying for patient. We took exception to this and wrote to N.Somerset PCT saying so pleased their policy wasn’t in effect when Nina was fighting for her life when no doctor was present to perform tracheotomy! (A nurse who was there only for that night (!) asked her if she could pray for her. She did so in tongues and Nina’s throat immediately opened; she became calm and at peace, as verified on her monitor’s read-out.)
  • tyrannical tool of intolerance: equality and diversity – MI5 director warns of ‘sleepwalking into police state’ – lawlessness within society and authorities…
  • note verses in Revelation, chapters 1-3Rev 21:7 and Luke 12.
  • take a stand per Ephesians 6:10-20, shocking open vision of Britain torn apart!
  • 2009 UK Prophetic Council – prepare to rule and reign – Luke 12 warnings
  • ICEJ meeting Southampton – overcomers, the Lion of Judah and His lions!

THUS, began my calling to write on the relevance of Bible and contemporary prophecy to current events, and the next month’s double-email Not Many People Know referred to the EU’s 666 connection!

This was soon followed by a confirmation whilst attending a school on prophecy on 21st May 2009 at Winchester Vineyard church and led by internationally renowned teacher Isabel Allum.

Isabel was led to prophesy for individuals in the audience. Walking straight up to the two of us, she discerned for me, “An impartation like Daniel had is going to come into you and you will start understanding the ‘riddles’ of the Lord in a different way – the gift of interpretation itself as Daniel and Joseph had is going to come to you and God is going to open up your understanding to hear from heaven.”

As my writing started soon after Barack Obama’s inauguration as President of the USA, many of my emails would cover his involvement in the Middle-East (see Obama’s Cairo SpeechEurope and Two Daniels…).

Therefore, I was encouraged to continue writing a couple or so emails a month until, by mid-2011, I was getting distinct ‘digs in the ribs’ to circulate to a far wider audience. The dream of seeing and realising the Kingdom is being set up in Britain, as told here, made me determined to deliver on those ‘nudges’ by launching this blog with some trepidation on 21st November 2011.

What had, however, had first piqued my curiosity in Bible prophecy and End-times as an anti-Christian was my reading a secular book in mid-1980s about the convergence of Jewish, Christian and Islamic calendars with historical events in the Holy Land and Jerusalem.  ‘Coincidentally’, what was showing on TV of elite units of Iranian and Iraqi armies rehearsing the liberation of Jerusalem (despite their being at war!!) plugged straight into what I noticed whilst I was flicking through The Invisible Hand.

Since starting this blog time I’ve noted the increasing incidence of those ‘Gog-Magog’ events, even an impediment over the blog’s second anniversary to writing about Iran! To read about Bible-related current events see Bible Updates tag (note: not exhaustive).

TODAY’S RELEVANCE OF THE BIBLE

In addition to the increasing prophetical focus this year on the wheat and tares parable, as in the previous post, we’re now, 10 years after my having that revelation, watching the direct relevance of the Bible’s predictions in everybody’s everyday life!  It predicts precisely what happens today when – of all things – people go shopping!

That is, the Holy Bible states in writing that, instead of handing over cash to buy goods, people will be waving their hands, or some indicative marking they’re got in or on their hands!  In other words, contactless payments – the cashless society!

Check it for yourself in the Book of Revelation: ‘no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of the beast on their right hand’ (Rev 13:17).

However, as the main part of that book after the first three chapters is highly symbolical then we’re not necessarily talking about a specific sign on a person’s hand or forehead. To consider this further you may like to read whether the ‘mark of the beast’ is a spiritual sign, as claimed in RFID, Technology and The Mark. (NB. End-Times Prophecy is 7th Day Adventist website which I’ve yet to check in any depth.)

Chris Bennett on Ezekiel 34 & 37 – bad shepherds and renewal of the Church

I thank the Lord and UK Prophetic Words for bringing this from Chris Bennett to my attention as I don’t recall anyone teaching on Ezekiel 34 since 25 years ago! It is very helpful to those who, like me, have been deeply concerned with these issues over the past month, and may answer our concerns and queries:

‘The Lord just revealed something to me. I don’t think for one moment I’m the only one hearing this, but this is the confirmation of what’s been brewing in me for several days.

‘The Lord is saying that NOW is that Ezekiel 34 moment – the exposing of the bad shepherds. Those who have led their flock through the wide, easy gate; who have omitted so much from the gospel and from the salvation experience.

‘Those who have suppressed and grieved Holy Spirit, forcing Him to be more a spectator than contributor in their services. Those who, in Ezekiel’s own words, have grown fat without feeding the flock, or who have denied healing to the sick, succour to the poor, and justice to widows and orphans.

‘The Lord is exposing and deposing such shepherds – “THEY SHALL FALL!”, says the Lord, BECAUSE THEY DISHONOUR MY NAME AND MY PEOPLE!! THEY FOLLOW THEIR OWN SINFUL PATH WHILE DESTROYING THOSE IN THE FLOCK WHO DO THE SAME THING! HYPOCRITES!!! THEY DO NOT PREACH MY GOSPEL NOR MY SALVATION, RATHER, THEY LEAD MY PEOPLE ASTRAY AND THEN CAST THEM ASIDE IN FAVOUR OF THEIR OWN EVIL SCHEMES !!!”, says the Lord.

‘Then the Lord showed me a wonderful Ezekiel 37 moment of prophesying to the bones then prophesying to the breath. He showed me the Valley of Dry Bones – the bones coming together. He told me to prophesy over these bones and, as I did so, the Lord showed me the army of the Lord here on earth, the church, coming together in unity once again. As I watched them, the Lord commanded me to prophesy to the breath, as in Ezekiel 37, “Command the breath, their voice, to return!” As I did so, I heard the sound of a roar coming from the resurrected army – a roar of authority and of the power of the Lord.

‘Having watched the shepherds exposed and the dry bones resurrected, the Lord spoke once again:

“I WILL SHAKE MY CHURCH FIRST TO EXPOSE THE BAD AND TO THEN BUILD UP THE GOOD. IT IS THE BEGINNING OF SEPARATING WHEAT AND TARES, AND THE BEGINNING OF JUDGEMENT, FOR DOES MY WORD NOT SAY THAT JUDGEMENT SHALL BEGIN WITH MY CHURCH?”

‘As I thought about this, the Lord continued,

“I SHALL BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO MY CHURCH, MY PEOPLE. MY CHURCH, MY BRIDE, SHALL RETURN TO MY GOSPEL INCLUDING FAITH, REPENTANCE, SALVATION, AND DISCIPLING, FOLLOWED BY THE RESTORATION OF ALL THE GIFTS OF MY SPIRIT. THEN FAITH, LOVE, SIGNS AND WONDERS SHALL BE THE HALLMARK OF MY PEOPLE.”

‘I felt the Lord had finished speaking, but He gave me a final question for all of us – When pastors start to fall, who will shepherd their flock? In this coming season, ‘all that can be shaken’ includes pastors being exposed and falling. Who will shepherd the flock then?

‘I heard the words, “The House Church movement will return just like the first church, 2000 years ago!” There is a hunger for this yet a rejection of the ‘church as usual’ mentality that pervades the body today. It’s the days of personal church meetings – small groups gathering for fellowship, often a meal, a time of teaching and discipling, with occasional larger group meetings when we all get together in celebration. I see much joy, great faith building, and miracles being the order of the day – every day! And evangelism will be rampant – church will be a lifestyle, no longer a social scene, but our way of life IN JESUS!!

‘HALLELUJAH !!!!’

Chris Bennett, 23rd February

RB Footnotes:
  1. About 25 years ago the Lord pointed me to Ezekiel 34 and I thought it may relate to my cell-group leadership’s inability to help me with my ‘New Age’ background. However, my godly pastor Barry Kirk at Tilehurst Free Church (Baptist) kindly encouraged me to seek deeper ministry help.  And so I was intrigued to learn that a recent Ellel Ministries ‘Battle for the Mind’ conference had specifically covered Ezekiel 34!
  2. Note carefully what Chris brings from the Lord on ‘Wheat and Tares’, which we’ve already covered this year – but much more on that in my next, very special post!!

Clifford Hill on God’s turning disaster into prosperity

Am pleased to learn the opening news in the reverend doctor’s latest editorial (click title below for link), as well as his aligning with what I’d heard elsewhere (footnotes refer). I particularly note his closing remarks about a coming spiritual awakening and revival:

TURNING DISASTER INTO PROSPERITY

God Is Working His Purposes Out.

Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking to a packed fringe meeting at the Church of England Synod in Westminster. There were a number of bishops and clergy of all ranks and the general atmosphere was one of deep concern for the state of the nation. The meeting was in Church House alongside Westminster Abbey and I think we were all aware of events across the road, where our politicians are struggling with seemingly intractable problems.

If any of those attending the meeting came expecting, or even hoping for, easy answers or joyful tidings, I’m afraid they would have gone away disappointed. The primary message I had to give was that God holds the Church responsible for the moral and spiritual state of the nation. I had been asked to speak about my latest book, ‘The Reshaping of Britain: Church and State since the 1960s’. I spoke about the last four Archbishops of Canterbury who I’ve known and worked alongside; and I spoke about the lack of a prophetic voice from the Church giving leadership to the nation in a time of revolutionary social, economic and political change.

It was not a comfortable message and in the short time of discussion it was clear that there are no easy answers to the situation. How do you bring creative, biblically-based change into an organisation as massive as the Church of England? I was only able to repeat what I’ve said so many times that there will be no revival in the nation until there is repentance in the Church. Of course, this is no easy message for those who are dealing with a multitude of pastoral problems in their congregations.

Right Understanding

One of the clergy asked, “Should we be encouraging young people in our churches to go into politics?” I know it is a very lonely and difficult place for Christians in the House of Commons at present. If there were a significant number of those who uphold biblical values and whose trust is in God, it would undoubtedly change the dynamics of politics and that should be a future hope and objective for all church leaders.

But I think it would take away a lot of our fear about the present political mess in the nation and our vast array of social problems if we simply understood what is going on. This means discerning the difference between the social engineering that has been driving the nation for the past 40 or 50 years generated by secular humanist advocates, and what is divine activity initiated by God.

Most Christians do not think in these terms because we do not rightly handle the whole word of God. We concentrate upon the Gospels and Epistles, but neglect to study the biblical Prophets, whom God used to reveal his nature and purposes to humanity in preparation for the coming of Messiah. Without a thorough understanding of this background we can never understand what God is doing in the world today. I said yesterday that this should be the major concern of church leaders today.

Listen to this from Isaiah 45:7“I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things.” All the Prophets recognised that God creates disaster! But he is more than ready to change disaster into prosperity!!! In fact, that is God’s purpose! He is longing to see his children enjoying the blessings of those who uphold righteousness and live by the standards of truth he has revealed in his word over many thousands of years.

Shaking All Things

God is at present shaking all the nations, as he first revealed to the Prophet Haggai in 520 BC, the significance of which for today is explained in the New Testament in Hebrews 12. You can see this in the upheavals and bitter Brexit divisions in Britain, in the rise of the populist movement in many countries throughout Europe, and in the fear of the Brussels elite at what may happen in the EU election in May this year.

You can see it in the USA, where there has never before been such bitter division between Republicans and Democrats. You can see it in the upheavals in South America, in Venezuela; similarly in Africa, especially in Nigeria in recent days, in the Middle East, in the distressing humanitarian crises in Yemen and Syria, and in many other parts of the world.

It is not only the nations that are being shaken, but all the great institutions in which we human beings put our trust – including the Church! Right now, the Roman Catholic Church is being torn asunder by having to face the sexual sins of its clergy over many decades that are being revealed to the public. Successive Popes have delayed the day of reckoning for many years, but the Vatican is having to face the uncomfortable truth that a system of forced celibacy in a social climate of sexual libertarianism is a recipe for disaster! Large numbers of clergy have misused their spiritual power for sexual gratification, exploiting vulnerable children and adults. The day of judgment has arrived, and this has not just been brought about by social pressure, but by the judgement of God

For Love

Why is God shaking everything? It may be amazing to those who do not study the whole word of God – but when God brings judgment upon the evil institutions of humanity it is an expression of his LOVE!

God so loved the world that he gave his own Son to save humanity from self-destruction. But our tiny minds simply cannot comprehend the magnitude of God’s purposes without the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit to flood his truth into our lives.

Let me give a small illustration of the great truth that I’m trying to convey. For more than 30 years I have been trying to teach a basic sociological truth that when you weaken and undermine the family, you destroy the social fabric of society, because the family is the linchpin holding everything together. This is what we have done in Western society and this is the underlying cause of knife crime, gang warfare, drug use, bullying, depression and suicide. We have crucified truth and produced an age of fake news, lies, hatred and violence, driven by the forces of darkness that we have embraced.

But amidst all this, God is working out his purposes to bring human beings to the point where they recognise that they have no solutions to the problems they have created. When they begin to cry out ‘O God, what has gone wrong?’ God knows they will be then open to the truth. He is calling upon his Church to be ready for a great spiritual awakening! Not a revival of the old institutions that we call churches, but a genuine new openness to the truth, met by a Church that genuinely both lives and declares the unchanging word of God.

That is the way disaster will be turned into prosperity! And the good news is that we may not be far from the turning point!

Dr Clifford Hill, 22nd February

RB Footnotes:
  1. Re. ‘shaking’ – about 20 years ago the Lord opened Hebrews 12:18-29 to me at a house-group and I was impressed to read it aloud, although no-one followed up. Hence, my blog’s covering an increasing number of prophecies on The Shaking; eg. in ‘a new season of shaking’ and ‘a merciful but severe course correction’. I’m aware that Dr Hill’s mentioned it many times before.
  2. Re. ‘prosperity’ – the foundational NT verse for this is central to Revd Dr Sharon Stone’s mentoring day as well as our associate minister’s message, on Sat 9th and Sun 10th February (ie. preceding Clifford Hill’s editorial): Matt 6:32-3 “…But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His Kingdom and His righteousness (his way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given to you besides…”
  3. Sharon’s session was the first in a track on principles behind wealth creation for a nation, introducing it with: “This morning we’re at a fresh place in our covenant – everything old is being left behind as we move into a fresh phase of ‘more’.”  
  4. After having read Dr Hill’s and ProphecyTodayUK’s judgmental condemnation of other ministries at the Wembley Day of Prayer, my reaction was that it would be far more appropriate to direct it at the apostasy and support of satan’s agenda in Anglican and other churches, and calling on them to repent!  So it’s good he’s at last addressed an Anglican synod – BUT, did they repent??  He doesn’t say.

An Ideal Parliament

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

All Along the Watchtower

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

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

Unity and Schism

An important and sound reflection in view of recent issues that have upset many of my readers. Am particularly pleased with Nicholas’ central emphasis on ‘accountability’, which is where the many non-traditional, modern churches can be vulnerable – yet 30 years ago ‘heavy shepherding’ gave rise to concerns and reaction to steer away from that style of pastoral oversight.
When I objected to joining a church as a possible new believer the Lord gave me the definitive answer by opening my new bible to Hebrews 13:17 – ‘Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so their work will be a joy and not a burden, for that would be no advantage too you.’ Such a clear directive was foundational to my journey along ‘The Way’!

All Along the Watchtower

Today I have spent some time reflecting on history and tradition, having watched Gavin Ashenden’s presentation on why he left the Church of England. Earlier in the week, I read a post at Cranmer’s site about the problem of schisms in politics and churches. Christianity has a long history of dividing into factions. In the very pages of Scripture we read:

“For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” (1 Corinthians 1:11-13, NKJV)

Verses like these present us with questions. When is it appropriate to put aside one’s differences and go…

Monday Mix: musings about previous – moderating comments

Several folk concerned over the issue covered in the previous post contacted me before and after its publication, and then Nicholas referred to that post in his Friday Miscellany. Two of his musings appear below, and it seems he discerned some points at the back of my mind but implicit in my text.

Moreover, Matthew 6:33 had turned up twice last weekend: On Sat 9th Dr Sharon Stone referred to its application as vital to prophetic strategy for blessing communities with new business developments and opportunities. Also, our church’s associate minister referred to that verse’s meaning in his Sunday message!

The Cost of the Kingdom

In His “Sermon on the Mount”, Christ talks about the cost of following Him. In my thoughts on our closeness to the return of Christ and the inception of the Millennium, I have been thinking about the cost of getting involved in God’s preparation work. Yesterday I read a post at Richard’s Watch that warned of the danger in opposing God’s work. It would be a shame if a Christian were to miss the opportunity to be involved in the great events of the end of the age. There are all sorts of barriers and obstacles that get in our way. Thinking along the lines of virtue epistemology, it seems to me that we must have an attitude of openness but not naivety. We should listen to things that are presented to us in just the same way as a court is impartial; then we should test the spirits to see if the message is of God.


Tools of the Enemy

The Enemy seeks to prevent the advance of the Kingdom of God. The more people he can keep in darkness, the more will end up in Hell. He knows that when Christ comes, he will be thrown into the Abyss for a thousand years, and then judged. So it is in Satan’s interest to forestall, if he can, the return of Christ, which is hastened by the efficacious work of the Church, empowered by the grace and Spirit of God.

One of the Enemy’s tools is causing division. He splits us by supporting and creating ideologies that fan the fire of man’s sinfulness, pitting group against group, and individual against God. Various -isms could be listed that have turned Christians against each other, and the world against the Church. The poor are turned against the rich; women against men; children against parents; the state against private individuals. If we are to overcome the Enemy, we must follow the course set out for us in Revelation: the blood of Christ and the testimony of our faith. We must find unity among true believers.


MODERATION OF COMMENTS 

The strategic tools Nicholas refers are behind my rationale when moderating comments submitted to this site.

Fifty years ago I witnessed first-hand divisions across the body of Christ. Unlike today, cooperation and fellowship between churches was a rarity. As a teenager I questioned why denominations believing in the same Jesus Christ were so opposed to one another, especially as Jesus had commanded believers to love one another.  Also, they did not  work miracles similar to those of Jesus, as He said they would. So, churches failed on both counts to live up to their founder’s commands. I treated Christians with contempt for such hypocrisy and headed towards ‘New Age’ ideals.

Therefore, as a sinner rescued by Jesus in person thirty years ago, my preference is to encourage unity in faith and not be seen to promote ‘bashing’ with a Bible or any unduly contentious conflict. This does not, however, obviate readers’ need to be well-versed in scripture and, thus, to investigate, analyse and weigh ALL matters with the Lord.  Also, as time is precious it’s necessary for me to steer away from debate.

APPROVALS

WordPress enables site administrators some flexibility in processing contributions. My initial preference was for all comments to appear online without the need for approval, which enables contributors’ subsequent items to appear free from any moderating.

Once this blog’s presence became noticed a few unwelcome remarks got deposited. The first came from a ‘bible basher’ who’d correct and argue against some material. To close his activity I had to set every comment to be approved before it could appear on the blog, which meant all regular contributors needed approving too.

To avoid repetition I set the moderation requirement to new commentators only, and any subsequent comments from them would be approved automatically.  Also, I introduced the ‘Comments Caveat’ to the Home Page.

The second came from a Muslim chap with whom I had interesting dialogue elsewhere, but after his first comment here he submitted monologues. So, for a short time I had to revert to the unnecessary, time-consuming task of approving every comment .

The tell-tale sign of such submissions is the use of an alias and not a person’s own, true identity!

So ‘reds026’, I appreciate your lengthy remarks submitted over the weekend and accept your deep concern, but I hope this detailed explanation will help you understand why it seems they’ve been ignored and not published – so far. Also, I was in lengthy debate on PTUK in late 2017 about this. More material on this issue has arrived, and so all may get summarised in another post.

Fulfilled Prophecies #39 & #40 – offence at Holy Spirit’s moving; from Mozambique to Mecca

The following word published as GPS#10 on 19 December 2017 is now republished because the situation it prophesies about has been repeated. Not only did that word confirm a vision received the same day 120 miles away, but also it spoke into a debate I’d been having in-depth over many days on a website purporting to cover prophecy!

In a Vision of Entrants to the Kingdom and Players in a Pigpen, Simon Braker of Leicester notes,

‘..It was at this point that I noticed there were other people in front of the door. Most of them ignored the Holy Spirit; others actually argued with Him when He directed them to a door to enter through. Still others were trying to climb up to the high doors but they would keep falling; each time they fell they became more and more bitter.

‘I then saw another group; they were shouting, ”You must only come through this door,” and not only did they try to force people through it, but they also tried to stop people going through the other doors the Holy Spirit was directing them to.

‘I could see that as a new door opened for a person it would sit upon the other open doors that person had, so each new door sat upon the others.

‘I then saw another group of people to the side of the door; they were all together rolling around in the mud in a pigpen. They were blind to their door for the mud covered their eyes; I could see many had been in the mud so long that they had begun to rot in the midst of it.

‘Upon the door I saw the words – THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM.’

That day in Kingston-upon-Thames, Brett Dewey writes in THOSE HOLDING ON TO OFFENCE WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE NEXT MOVE OF GOD’S SPIRIT:

‘During My time of fasting and praying in October (2017) I was given a dream. In my dream I was standing upon an old wall overlooking the ocean. I pointed out towards the ocean and began to prophesy:

“A WAVE IS COMING, A WAVE IS COMING!”

‘Next thing I could see, there was a huge wave which was rolling in from the back. The wave came in and went half way up the beach. An old lady was on the beach and the water came to her feet. Even though she had wellington boots on she didn’t like the water being on her feet and walked off the beach.

‘I was again on the wall and looked out to the sea and began to prophesy “A WAVE IS COMING, A WAVE IS COMING”. Straight away a huge wave came in from the back.

‘This time the wave came right up to the beach and completely covered it. There was, however, a divider between the waters and right over the back on the right hand side, some distance from the shore, were a small group of people playing in the surf and having fun on their surf boards, enjoying the wave.

‘I then looked and I was standing by a teal green fence and it was like I was holding onto a fence. A woman who was standing on an old wall a little higher than the fence started trying to prophesy to me, but when I looked into her eyes she was of another Spirit not the Holy Spirit – so I called fire on her and she disappeared out my dream.

‘I then heard the Spirit of God speak saying:

“Those that are holding on to offence will not be able to enter in to the next wave of My Spirit.”

‘Also the woman prophesying that wasn’t of God presented herself as a Prophet, but was a woman who was a Christian; in offence she had been prophesying out of a divination spirit – as those in offence open the door to function from that Spirit when allowing it in – WATCH FOR THIS!

‘I first took the dream personally as a warning for me not to enter into offence – but later while attending a connect group in our Church, I felt led to release it – shortly after for the next few weeks I had fun walking out this word as that Spirit of Offence came through different vessels trying to find access to my life and calling, but never prevailed.

‘November’s 2017 Fire conference on the Saturday – I again saw this Spirit of Offence. I began asking the Lord what this was and had I offended him in any way – I began repenting – The Lord said that there would be many who would be offended because of Him. I felt a peace and a witness that what He was going to do in the next wave of glory would be offensive to many – especially people that had no room for GOD’S sovereignty in their mindsets.

‘I was also was reminded about the old woman, whom I believe represented an old Church, in my dream above – perhaps one set in religion, or tradition passed down – she didn’t like what the Spirit did and didn’t want to be in the water, which depending on the colour, represents the Spirit. She was stuck in tradition and legalism and hadn’t grasped the concepts of GOD’S enormous grace and sovereignty.

‘I also believe the Lord encourages us not to be offended if other churches despise you or are offended, because you let God’s work be done and His Spirit manifest in all his Glory in the midst of your meetings. Hold fast to what is true. This is what the next wave will bring.

‘Also I want to include that recently after releasing a word in our Church – KingsGate, Kingston – about turning the page and not being stuck on a page in the book of our life – as God has started your story and there was more – turn the page and keep walking – after I went and laid down before the Lord as His Presence became more manifest, again I saw this Spirit of Offence come out of a dark place – this time it was pinging back and forward looking for a place to land on the Church – I felt this was a prayer point and also it was an assignment from the enemy to abort us from enjoying the next wave of God’s glory which he has planned to be released in our meetings at a very large proportion.

‘I should have bound it when I saw it, but I just waited to hear more from the Lord about it.

‘Last of all I will record the vision I saw in the December One Voice prayer meeting in our church. During worship I was focusing on the Lord and watching for His Spirit – I saw myself in what was the top floor of an office building. I was sitting in a chair looking up with my eyes closed but could see all that was in the room.

‘Suddenly the whole roof lifted up off the floor and there were just open heavens – I had the feeling the Lord was removing restrictions – possibly the restrictions of man – we have perhaps put limitations on God – He removed the roof: there was no limit now – all restrictions man-made or otherwise being removed in Jesus name…’

PERSONAL NOTES

In the original of this posting, I explain excitement in my spirit was not only because of what’s cited above, but also and more especially because the last part of Brett’s vision (about being in an office and seeing the heaven opened) relates directly to the dream of September 2011 wherein I watch and declare, “They’re setting up The Kingdom!”

That dream’s content amazingly coincided with what happened at the Revival Alliance meeting in Westminster, as reported in ‘Father Let Your Kingdom Come’. That ‘God-incidence’ propelled me into blogging within weeks.

If you read that email, please note the direct connection between the dream and what Bill Johnson had prophetically mused about that date being retrospectively regarded as the day when, from a Kingdom viewpoint, things started changing in Britain.

Consequently, I regarded both visions on 14th December 2017 as confirming the stance I’d taken disputing claims against modern moves of the Holy Spirit. I blogged on it when telling how EIGHT ‘God-incidents’ Validate Three Visions, just like pieces of an invisible jigsaw puzzle!!

In view of that and earlier intrusions from self-appointed heresy hunters I inserted a clarification in ‘An Introduction to Prophecy’, which is now a separate reference page Beware – A Word of Warning.

Fulfillment #39

Therefore, having that revelation in connection with Bill Johnson – and his associates in the Revival Alliance – as well as having attended dozens of their meetings, I disagree with Prophecy TodayUK’s opinion about other followers of Jesus Christ at Wembley Day of Prayer for the UK on 29th January – and in later articles on their site!

In fact, the next day a visitor here left five critical messages on posts about Heidi Baker drawing attention to and questioning her association with Bill. Presumably that person has never met those whom they criticise?

Having supported Prophecy Today UK’s relaunch online and kindly permitted to reprint several of Dr Clifford Hill articles, and had pleasant, satisfactory dealings with managing editor Frances Rabbitts, I’m most disappointed in their continued criticism of other non-perfect leaders. (Yes, I know there could be many improvements in their operations.)

I cannot recollect, however, anything prophetic or of the Holy Spirit being brought by the Reverend Doctor other than sound biblical teaching and application for our days. So I have to question whether or not he has the gift of prophecy? He does not function in the office of prophet and I do hope all their denigration of what Holy Spirit has been and is doing (eg. claiming it’s demonic kundalini spirit – from which I was delivered years ago!) hasn’t resulted in their committing the unforgivable sin!

According to the above word, those brethren are unwilling to recognise and will, therefore, be barred from entering into the next wave of Holy Spirit’s power and presence!

In my opinion, they’d be wise to avoid aiding and abetting the Accuser of the Brethren, thus giving succour to the enemy of our souls and hater of humanity.

Fulfillment #40

The first time I saw Heidi, the Lord gave me an open vision indicative of the anointing the Bakers carry. My email 8 years ago of Dutch Sheets speaking about A Third Great Awakening? recounts the details:

‘Dutch’s descriptions reminded me of a vision of holy fire sweeping up the eastern side of Africa from Mozambique (where Rolland and Heidi Baker have brought whole Muslim provinces to Jesus), up to Sudan and Egypt and then into the Arabian peninsula! Even so, the one who would usurp God’s throne will no doubt get stirred up. So we shall see…

‘[2012 Note: The vision came when I first saw Heidi addressing a conference in Toronto. Suddenly, it was as though I was in orbit over central Africa and saw tall flames leaping high into the atmosphere over the whole of Mozambique and which spread northwards. The Mediterranean coast sat on the curvature of the globe and I saw the flames go along it and across the Sinai peninsular (thus, into Arabia). Upon speaking to Rolland Baker a year or so later, he told me the vision is like that which their director Supresa Sithole had for Iris Ministries (in his early days with them).]

Therefore, we could say recent visits by evangelical leaders to Egypt, Jordan and the Middle-East, as well as President Trump’s personal envoys to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, are taking that fire into those Muslim nations. Not to forget on 14th anniversary of 9/11 a lightning bolt struck a significant building in Mecca (read Kingdom-related Events Since Lightning Strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque).

Personally and most importantly, I cannot forget the night Toronto’s John Arnott didn’t deliver his prepared message because, “I think the Lord wants to heal tonight!” Within minutes my dear wife, officially registered as ‘permanently disabled’, was fully enabled to leave her wheelchair behind – and returned other apparatus!!! (Testimony here)

Selah…

PS. Yet another God-incidence – and whilst writing! It’s very encouraging because I’d intended blogging on what I had over the weekend on Ireland and EU. But after having noted a friend’s brief comment on Wembley prayer day and then receiving an unhappy email from a Facebook contact, I was simply going to copy GPS#10 – but then found myself carried away!

NOW, this may be hard to believe, but it’s true, as God and my wife are my witness..:

In finishing writing above, I took a phone call for Nina as she was chatting to our friend in the lounge. ‘R’ wanted to ask my opinion on a disturbing book she’s got, but Nina didn’t want to interrupt me as it’s my full blogging day before starting our long weekend.

So she asked ‘R’ to phone later and talk about its author: ‘Clifford Hill’ – not knowing he’s the very subject I’m writing about !!

Thus I’ve got a clear, God-incidental confirmation now’s the time to blog about him.

Decree & Declaration over Church & Government

We join and stand in agreement with Passion For The Nation’s publication this morning of the following (issued under heading ‘Government’, which I’ve extended as above):

Click/tap image for link to Passion For The Nation and previous declarations

“The remnant lifts up its voice with a joyful shout. From the west they praise the majesty of the Lord Yahweh, and in the east they give glory to the Lord God!” Isaiah 24:14

We decree and declare in this season, the church will carry and model Your message of reconciliation and unity into our nation with power and sensitivity, that all communities divided through religion, culture, social status and political opinion will be healed in Jesus’ name. We decree, destructive past experiences will be replaced by new positive ones, that respect will replace hatred and love replace fear.

We declare in this nation, a new level of unity and “oneness” is being released, so in the Name of Jesus, we speak over the separation between the indigenous British church and the spiritual sons and daughters from other nations within the UK that the love of God will overcome every personal and cultural divide, that all giftings and callings will be honoured, welcomed and utilised.

We declare Apostolic and 5-fold ministries within the land, the leaders of streams, of spiritual houses and denominations will recognise the significance of the times, standing together and moving together as respect, honour and trust increase between them.

We declare a new spirit of love and co-operation will rest upon all generations to work together and we call forth the spiritual mothers and the spiritual fathers, in the Name of Jesus.

Now Lord, we thank You for all those You have positioned within our Parliamentary System for this time, irrespective of party allegiance. We speak Your strength, Your wisdom and Your mantle of authority upon them, that Your voice will be heard clearly sounding above and beyond every other voice.

We decree and declare over every secret discussion, debate and vote in these days, the boundaries, borders and sovereignty of this nation; judicial, legislative, physical, spiritual, political and economic will be marked out, established and concluded according to God-given Kingdom purpose and timing.

We declare the Cabinet, Government and Opposition parties, will work shoulder to shoulder, as God-given direction rises above party allegiance, political agendas and personal preference. We stand in Your grace and we declare a fresh alignment of the words and thoughts of our leaders with Your will, that Your plans for this nation will be established.
