Leisa Ebere: God is marking time to cleanse His Bride (GPS#24)

This word brought by Leisa Ebere resonates strongly with that from Dr Sharon Stone on the 9 months, as released the same weekend, and what Chuck Pierce had delivered on 30th October on that and on interceding women and the Bride, plus the vision Veronika West published this last Saturday.  

Leisa writes:  ‘Please find the powerful prophetic word the Lord gave me during the Mums Must Pray Conference last weekend, November 3rd & 4th. Father God is marking time and bringing forth a great cleansing to His Bride. And His Sovereign Hand is at work before the great coming of Yeshua.:

“Dear Children, In the days ahead, I am sending 1477 Lightening Rods of My Spirit and releasing hundreds upon hundreds of Chariots of Angels, to assist My Bride to overcome, and take away the things that block her path. And I will build up My People,” says the Lord, “and there shall be an overflowing of My Spirit. I am Sovereign and I am sending mighty winds in a tumult of glory; which will cause a great pushing back of the enemy. And I say to you, that I am marking time and there is a sequence in the Spirit Realm that I am releasing upon the Earth; which shall cause a great cleansing to take place and it shall be 9 and 9 and 9 and 5 months. 32 months in total and during each sequence of 9 months, tornados of My Spirit shall go forth into the houses and the church houses; and either clear out or catch up those people, according to their actions;, who have chosen their own path. During each of these 9 months, specific principalities and sons of wickedness shall be pushed away to places of destruction and during the last 5 months, I shall release a mighty grace and restoration upon My People. Yes, I say to you this day, that a great cleansing, is breaking forth, says the Lord, and just as my Angel in the book of Revelation, stood upon the Land and Sea, so shall I touch the earth with a mighty footprint of My Spirit. The trumpet is sounding and Yeshua is coming,” says the Lord, “and I will secure My People for My Glory.”

Veronika West: Britain shall be turned and called by a new name (GPS#24)

URGENT WORD FOR GREAT BRITAIN; YOU SHALL BE TURNED AND YOU SHALL BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME..!

“WATCH! AS THE NATION BEGINS TO TURN TURN TURN FOR THE FACE OF THE KING IS NOW TURNED TOWARDS THE NATION OF GREAT BRITAIN, LISTEN! FOR THE ROAR OF RESURRECTION POWER WILL NOW BE HEARD IN THIS HOUR FOR NOW THE TIME OF DIVINE VISITATION HAS COME TO THIS NATION AND YOU GREAT BRITAIN SHALL BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME”!

veronika-westI was woken two nights ago by an Angel of the Lord standing in the corner of my room, as I sat bolt upright in bed and looked at the Angel of the Lord a powerful vision opened up before me where I saw the LION OF JUDAH SITTING IN THE GROUNDS OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE…!

As I looked at the Lion of Judah suddenly He stood to His feet and He lifted His head and began to ROAR OVER AND INTO THE LAND OF THE UNITED KINGDOM. As I watched and listened, I saw as the grounds of Buckingham Palace begin to shake violently, the walls of the Palace were greatly shaken and then suddenly I saw the heavens begin to open up over the City and I heard these words,

“WATCH! AS THE NATION BEGINS TO TURN TURN TURN FOR THE FACE OF THE KING IS NOW TURNED TOWARDS THE NATION OF GREAT BRITAIN, LISTEN! FOR THE ROAR OF RESURRECTION POWER WILL NOW BE HEARD IN THIS HOUR FOR NOW THE TIME OF DIVINE VISITATION HAS COME TO THIS NATION AND YOU GREAT BRITAIN SHALL BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME”!

As I heard those words I then watched as the Lion of Judah began to walk the length and breath of the Nation, as He walked so He ROARED OVER THE LAND, I watched as the sound of HIS ROAR caused the Nation to SHAKE AND SHIFT, then suddenly I heard the sound of a loud TRUMPET and then I saw a golden stairway come out of the heavens and touch the ground of the Nation and I heard these words, “HEAVEN IS NOW TOUCHING EARTH”, now with my eyes fixed upon the golden stairway suddenly I saw Angels begin to descend upon the Nation, Now As I looked at the Angels it was quickened to me by the Spirit “JACOBS DREAM”, and then I heard these words,

“GREAT BRITAIN I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC AND JACOB AND YOU SHALL BE TURNED AND YOU SHALL BE TRANSFORMED FOR THE HOUR OF MY RESURRECTION POWER HAS BEEN RELEASED UPON THIS NATION”.

2019 – a new season of shaking for UK (GPS#24)

Three messages about a new season in the Lord are submitted for prayerful weighing, two of which are published today. The first, delivered by Dr Sharon Stone last Saturday to prepare for a prophetic word for 2019, is summarised from my all too brief notes as checked against my recording, and which I pray may do her in-depth teaching justice:
OUT OF SURVIVAL INTO REVIVAL MODE

  • God brings clarity and revelation to prophecies for the old season when we move into a new season AND brings another installment! (eg. those for 2018)
  • Many prophets have spoken of a ‘divine reversal/comeback’
  • Now a prophet’s reward season – no longer ‘watch and see’ but ‘build and plant’!
  • Fresh definition of revival needed,; one meaning it’s everyone’s revival!
  • Significance of 2109 – 9 means completion: eg. fruits of the Spirit, 9 beatitudes,9 gifts of the Spirit – now need for greater and longer praying in the Spirit which makes it like travelling by skateboard to a JET.
  • Important to operate in Ephesians 1 mode to release and move into our proper job description, authority and alignment as prophetic people.
  • Breakthrough and birth are at 9th month Hebrew letter (tet) signifies a pregnant woman, and is equivalent of ‘expectation’ – thus, push need to make manifest!
  • God wants to answer/bring delivery so it will be seen by others and bring hope.
  • 3 P’s – prayer, praise and prophesy to release powerful angels who bring about the impossible (Isa 30:31) – if feeling besieged need to repent and do 3 Ps!
  • God made prophets not to be a special elite keeping what they hear to themselves but to be BLABBERMOUTHS to bring to birth what He’s about to do!

CHANGE OF SEASON – NEXT 9 MONTHS:

  • Teaching on scriptures for change of season – 1Kings 18:36-39; Ezek 9-19; Dan 9; Acts 3:1 and Acts 10
  • Revival prayers are Kingdom-related rather than self-centred (as ‘survival mode’) and God is going to give so many miracles to focus upon what He’s doing, which gives us more time as there’s less need to focus on needs.
  • We’re pushing through to see a nation born in a day!

“I believe – and I’m not in favour of this, God didn’t ask my advice or opinion – I believe the UK is getting ready to go through a great shaking for the next 9 months…

“I believe nobody votes for shaking, but this shaking is to bring something good, something new out…It is for us and not against us but if you don’t know what this 9 months of shaking is about – then note when the earth shook when Jesus died, it released a new season and I believe what’s going to happen in the UK is a change will take place and that for 9 months God will be speaking…

“So from now to end-July 2019 the emphasis is to pray “Lord bring us through quickly! God, accomplish everything you need to do and I’m not going to let it change my opinion of what You need to do.

“I believe God’s shaking is going to bring about revival, resurrection life, the awakening of dry bones and this will actually cause a fresh declational release in this nation that Jesus IS the Son of God.”

BIRTHING A NEW SEASON

By Passion for the Nation on Wednesday November 7th, 2018

Our Heavenly Father, may the glory of Your Name be the centre on which our life turns. May your Holy Spirit come upon us and cleanse us. Manifest Your Kingdom on earth” (Luke 11:2 Passion Translation)

We declare over this nation:

“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. We decree Your people in this nation will come into agreement with Your word, ‘to seek first the Kingdom of God’ both in prayer and lifestyle.

“We decree a fresh desire to hear Your heartbeat and perceive the presence of the Holy Spirit guiding, leading, and instructing will come upon Your people. We call them into Your Presence to understand Your ways, that the power of prayer will be exercised and increased across the land.

“You are establishing Your Kingdom to overwhelm and overcome every opposing Kingdom, You are setting things in order, setting up Your governmental rule on the earth as it is in Heaven. So, in the Name of Jesus, we declare Your purpose over this nation to display Your Kingdom and Your Kingship.”

TANGIBLE CHANGE

Lion Bites from Glasgow Prophetic Centre issued 7th November 2018

The goodness of God is falling on your skin like rain to bring physical, real, tangible change. This encounter isn’t ethereal or far off, nor is it an encounter that will make you feel good for a moment yet not last. This showering of His glory is coming to reorder your internal workings and alter the way you approach life from this point onwards. Just like God transformed Moses’ physical skin after causing glory to pass him by, so there will be a real life change for you.

Make yourself available as much as possible for God’s glory to pass you by. Create space and time in your diary and schedules to sit and press in for more of God regularly until you are forever changed.

Exodus 34:29
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD.

Brexit and the Bible: a ‘journey’ into their connection – part 3

Dave Hood follows up his Monday email with this of Tuesday 17th October:

JOURNAL OF A JOURNEY cont’d

Part 3 – Britain / EU

Over the past number of days the Lord has directed me to read Isaiah 41 and Exodus 14. Both with an application to Brexit. Both interlock with one another.

Would you read Isaiah 41. [RB: Biblegateway, NIVUK]

Declarations of the Lord’s glory over Britain on All Hallows’ Eve

Detail from cover of ‘Ladies of Gold’ by James Maloney

First thing this morning we realised the Lord is specifically speaking about today’s holy significance as the ‘Eve of All Hallowed Souls’ (ie. ‘All Saints Day’ tomorrow) through a couple of our regular devotional aides:

First, this from Sanctuary – Moments in His Presence was read out aloud:

‘Today, we reflect on the One who is the Light of the world. He has such zeal to accomplish all things. Speak over your neighbourhood and over your nation today:

“The Holy One, the Lord Reigns!”

‘The LORD will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry. He will prevail against His enemies.

“I have kept silent for a long time, I have kept still and restrained Myself. Now like a woman in labor I will groan, I will both gasp and pant. I will lay waste the mountains and hills and wither all their vegetation; I will make the rivers into coastlands and dry up the ponds. I will lead the blind by a way they do not know; in paths they do not know I will guide them. I will make darkness into light before them and rugged places into plains.  These are the things I will do, and I will not leave them undone.” (Isa 42:13-16 NASB)

‘Praise God for Your single-mindedness, Jesus! I pray for You to presence Yourself in our midst. Lead the blind into the Light. Make the way smooth beneath their feet so they may walk forward and entrust themselves to You. How small is our vision of who You are! You are light and power unimaginable! Forgive us. Tune our spirits to the music of heaven and somehow make our obedience count for You this day. Amen.’

Thank you to David Strutt for kind permission to quote and broadcast, hence my editorial amendment from singular to plural in the last sentence and other minor emphases.

Secondly, today is ‘Day 33 (noteworthy; to be explained in upcoming post) Carlisle‘ from Keep Praying & Bless, the decree for which is based upon 1 Chronicles 29:11,  “Yours O Lord is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendour, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours.”

Decree: “I AM YOUR OMNIPOTENT GOD”

We decree: “There is none like our God. He is all-powerful, and all things are in His hands.”

Aaronic Blessing: The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, The Lord lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace. Thus, we put His name upon you and He will bless you (Numbers 6:24-27).

“We bless these isles to know the power and might of our God. We bless the nations to revere and honour Him alone.”

This is followed by a prayer of protection.:

‘Almighty Father, we come to You in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, and in that mighty Name we break the power of every strategy and assignment sent against the British Isles and Ireland. We pray the mighty covering of the Living Blood of Jesus Christ over our villages, towns and cities; over our coastlands, seaports and airports; over our roadways, railways, waterways and ferries – as well as over ourselves and….

‘We ask that You release the angelic host to protect us from every spiritual and terrorist attack and lift each citizen above every circumstance and crisis. WE AFFIRM THE FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST OVER ALL DEMONIC FORCES and decree: no weapon formed against the plans and purposes for the British Isles and Ireland will prosper. We also decree: no longer will violence be heard in our land, or destruction within or at our borders. We bless the atmosphere to be charged with peace and order. Amen’  (Isaiah 54:17 & 60:18) 

Two visions regarding America’s Supreme Court

This guest post by Dave Hood written last Friday, 5th October, is about what happened whilst interceding for the serious issues facing the United States. He arrives at a most interesting conclusion, which relates to a prophecy from 10 years ago – more on that in the next post. Please weigh and wait upon the Lord:

THE SUPREME COURT – 3 inputs

Last night, Thursday 4th, during a short group impromptu prayer time that focused on current and vital issues in America, 2 short visions were received. I share them here, but I’ve been unable to use graphics to help with the content.

Vision 1 – Seesaw:

I saw a wooden seesaw. It was weighed down on the right side of the seesaw by men in “silhouette form” (men dressed in black) holding 3 things in their hands:

  • Unrighteousness
  • Injustice
  • Lies

These 3 things seemed to be winning, weighing the nation down… the weight held the opposite (left side) up in the air.

Then I saw again the same seesaw, but it now looked different.

The left side now, God took a step and placed one foot, one boot of God standing on the left side, holding it down. Also that represented that side as being weighed down by 3 things:

  • Righteousness
  • Justice
  • Truth.

The side that was previously weighed down with/by unrighteousness \ lies \ injustice
was now … up in the air … with nowhere to go because it was weighed down by God’s characteristics and focus and not man’s.

No matter how much they tried, they on the right hand side could not move or budge one iota the left side weighed down by God; His Foot, Boot, Righteousness / Justice / Truth. Neither could they move, alter or shift from their ‘up in the air’ place.

Boot in scripture represents battle, boot of a warrior in battle; reflective of a firm, bold stance.

But earlier today, Friday 5th, I note Veronica West posted a video of a dream she had on Thursday night of The Lion of Judah on the stairs of The Supreme Court.

In her dream she vividly outlines how The Lion of Judah, with roars and the attendance of archangels, sends forth Righteousness, Justice and Truth … offering confirmation, and scope for further prayer.

That evening of 4th October, following the Seesaw vision, was a 2nd short vision called “conjoined”

Vision 2 – Conjoined:
I saw the outline of the USA with all its states in different colours and state boundaries marked out.

And I heard …”How can two walk together unless they agree”. This is from Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

As I looked at the coloured blocks of states I thought … they are not in agreement … they are all individual and not cohesive.  And the thought that darkness loves to keep it this way … because it causes/fosters division.

I then saw 2 neighbouring states, that seemed to have one common boundary line –
And down the length of the join of that common line … I saw God drawing His line along on top.

Only that it was drawn in fire and where the fire touched the common boundary line … it turned to … molten red lava … this had the effect of welding, sealing the boundary line, melding what was two, into one. (For example the common boundary line one a map, between say Colorado and Utah in western USA)

But then, as a result of His action, one could see the central common boundary line had disappeared all together – resulting in the 2 states becoming one! And Utah/Colorado would turn all pink or all brown using the example of the states colour on a map … the colour I actually saw the two states meld into, in the vision was, the colour red.

They were now one … but really they were the same 2, but walking in agreement.

And I saw this happening again, in various other parts of the USA with other states that were neighbours.

UNTIL

there were more pairs of conjoined states than there was the sum total of the separate, individual ones combined.

The conjoined ones were all in agreement with each other.

My thoughts, suggested, this might well be a healthy thing and that it would determine that the total number of conjoined states have the majority over those states that were still individual.
.
50 states … as I’m from the UK, I think that means at the very least … 13 pairs need be conjoined to represent any majority.

… both pictures – seem to be God’s response – that came out of the ascending prayers during the end time of that meeting, which no doubt also bears the weight of many other groups and individuals elsewhere that have yearned for God’s intervention

Each state has 2 senators…so there is a dynamic internally to each state as well, that will determine any leaning, result.

The question is … Is the introduction of the conjoining aspects of the States, to be seen as characteristic of voting patterns? If so, what vote is being represented and, if so, where, if so, when?

Today as I write, it is Friday 5th … and we only now see the result of an initial vote, the one regarding Judge Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court nomination.The result as being 51- 49 in favour of the proposal going through to a final vote. There is tomorrow’s (Saturday) vote to come.

Veronika’s dream is situated on the stairs of the Supreme Court, before any vote was taken. The understood common factors between the dream and mini-visions were the announcing, highlighting of Righteousness, Justice and Truth… that were to be instigated from there. There is a need to gain understanding.

So it is Saturday … the concluding vote will be known here after 20:30 here in the UK

Whatever transpires …or when. For it seems that some form of representation, with the inclusion of a numerical process is brought into the timeline. For the Lion of Judah has shown what He purposes, whether it be sooner in His time and/or later.

The following comes to mind. May He who begun a good work, perfect it. Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?” says the Lord. “Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” says your God.

[Selah]

Passion for the Nation: Prayer

Today’s declaration on Passion for the Nation is re-published with kind permission: 

Lord God, we recognise this is a day when You are moving upon nations, You are changing leaders, You are changing Governments, You are changing National and International Alliances. In the Name of Jesus, we declare in these days the United Kingdom will be positioned in every way for Your perfect plan and destiny.

We thank You for the increase of prayer across this nation, for the established movements and the new movements, for the prayer groups and the individuals. We declare they will be united in heart, vision and purpose under the headship of Jesus, supporting, strengthening and encouraging each other, that a highway for Your Presence, will be built within this land,

In the Name of Jesus, we shake ourselves out of apathy. We put down our own agendas, we put down our own preferences and our own understanding, and we declare Lord, this is a day to listen to Your Spirit, to hear Your voice and to know Your ways.

We declare Your Church will move, speak and pray according to Your purpose at this time.

——————————————————————————————————–

Now Lord, even as this is a time for Your Kingdom to be released within our land, we declare the Brexit terms will be legislated according to Heaven and bring convergence with Your appointed time. We decree any further debates, amendments or decisions, introduced by the UK Parliament, The Cabinet, the EU, Member States’ Parliaments or devolved Governments in the months ahead, will increase and not decrease alignment with Your Kingdom Purposes.

My chains fall off…freed at last from satan!

Months after that night of destiny in 1989 I trashed my occult and New Age books, but  I still had a few items very significant to membership in those occult brotherhoods. Very soon, however, troubles brewed up within my relationships. And they got worse, and worse. So I asked for prayer help and I gathered all those remaining  things, such as ritualistic items and pictures. Right at the peak of my trouble I heard an almost audible voice instruct me,

Burn what you’ve collected – NOW!”

Never, ever, would I have believed what was to happen next:

Out in the backyard I piled those items onto an area of gravel and, putting a match to them, I sincerely repented. Fanning the flames, I apologised deeply to God for all my past rebellious, sinful activity and specifically renounced all the evil connected with and arising from my occult associations.

As I asked God to forgive me, heavy invisible shackles suddenly dropped off my wrists!

I felt, and was, free, completely free – exactly as is jubilantly sung in Charles Wesley’s great hymn And Can It Be? 

WOW, from despair to jubilation within a split second!  What utter freedom!  Praise Him!

That hymn’s lyrics present the simple yet sublime salvation found in our Father’s good news about Jesus.

How aptly the third verse describes my personal situation and what had just happened – my wonderful liberation from invisible bondage to satan.:

1. And can it be that I should gain
An int’rest in the Saviour’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God shouldst die for me?

2. He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace!
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race!

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me.

3. Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night.
Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray:
I woke the dungeon flamed with light!

My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

4. No condemnation now I dread:
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,

Bold I approach th’ eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

If you’re unfamiliar with Charles Wesley brother of the renowned evangelical founder of Methodism, John Wesley, you may like to read the brief note at the foot of this page of lyrics from Scripture and Music.

Click image to hear one of the greatest hymns as broadcast some years ago in Songs of Praise, thanks to Fabio Ramsay.:

I will rejoice in the Lord, I will exult in the victorious God of my salvation! (Hab 3:1)

[For overview of full testimonial see “I’m FREE!”]

Jesus leads me to those with similar testimony as mine

The Father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in Whom we have our redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. [St Paul’s letter to the Colossians 1:13-14, Amplified Bible.]

On top of needing to test Christians’ claims of hearing God direct and for which I got astounding personal evidence of that regarding false teachers and their falsehoods, I wanted to know lots more about Jesus.

In my wariness of religious folk I’d assumed none would be able to comprehend my story as they’d be ignorant about those things. Doubtless, none would have been through my kind of bad, meditative ‘trips’ – or so I thought!

But again, direct help was at hand from the Bible’s Author… Continue reading

Jesus opens my Bible to answer my ‘newbie’ questions!

TO GOD ALONE BE THE GLORY

My testimony to the Lord’s saving grace as told in the recent posts, was among the first postings on this blog in December 2011 and entitled Death or Destiny? Choose Wisely. I was reticent to go into any depth about my bondage to satan but, in view of today’s widespread ignorance, I told the full story in 7 installments for the event’s anniversary in 2013 (No 7 and My Journey Into Freedom). Over discussions here and on another blog last year someone thought my brief references to Islam indicated my ignorance of it and of deism in particular. So, for the record I augmented the account with necessary detail. Now for newer readers’ information, we continue with the final three parts and a NEW question 3 inserted below:

Triple validation of Jesus’ 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!
