Prophetic word on manifestation of flames of fire and of the Glory

AWESOME ‘COINCIDENCE’!!  Just in from a walk and checking emails and note this from and courtesy of Chris Bennett and UK Prophetic Words. As I copy/paste and read ‘ramping up…’ it all matches the rhythm of Kenny Peavy and band on my hi-fi urging the Lord to purify them...”My heart is burning for you, my heart is burning for you…I’m hungry, thirsty longing for You…”, and then plead, “Set me on fire with Your fire” …

PENTECOSTAL FLAMES OF FIRE WILL DESCEND AND THE GLORY WILL MANIFEST VISIBLY

It’s all ramping up! The wave just gets bigger by the moment. There is a build-up of Holy Spirit power and pressure and sometime soon it’s going to blow! I prophesy that it will have a different release point and a different effect and manifestation in each place Holy Spirit decides to let loose. The manifestation will be suited to the recipients – I don’t know how else to put it.

In a quiet church the manifestation will be quiet, while in a loud, bouncy church the manifestation will be more explosive. In both cases I see Pentecostal flames of fire descending upon the people. However, the result will be the same – an explosive growth in both churches with signs and wonders following. So – what will it look like?

The only examples we have are Argentina, Toronto, Pensacola, and later moves. There may even be some quite elderly saints who can go back to the Hebridean Revival of 1949–51, but it has been prophesied time and time again that this coming move will be different from anything seen or recorded previously.

I prophesy the Ruach, the wind of the Spirit, will manifest in meetings. The Ruach shall blow and the Glory shall enter. I prophesy that the Glory Cloud, the Shekinah Glory, will manifest visibly. I prophesy that those in the meetings where these signs are manifest shall, like Moses and others since, shine – their faces shall shine and reflect the Glory of God’s presence. I see people laying in the Glory as ones dead, only to rise again in a while singing and giving praises to the Lord, faces shining brightly from His presence.

The fire will fall and people will experience, many for the first time, the touch of God – that touch that sends electricity racing through your body, that fills you with such faith and power, that gifts us everything we need for our calling, our ministry. For some it will be a quiet peaceful thing; for others it will be like Elijah on the mountain – wind, fire, earthquake, and stillness. No two will necessarily be the same. I prophesy that each of us will meet with the Lord in the Glory – and we’ll never be the same again!

This is the coming season of revival. It is starting already and it is certainly coming to a church near you very soon.

It’s not the End but the Start of an amazing, wonderful New Day!

It’s ‘kinda-coincidental’ that early on Tuesday morning two readers left encouraging comments on February’s post: Dreams and visions of Big Ben at the prophetical midnight hour – and that I saw that day’s headline on the clock’s chimes being silenced for four years and wanted to blog about that (see previous post). And it was opportune to use a graphic of Big Ben from an unknown source used to announce an intercessory gathering in Canterbury under the designation “It Is Time”!

The first of those comments was from Jonathan and followed up his earlier remarks,

‘With these prophecies I think it’s significant (as I e-mailed you at the time Richard) that the big prayer movement thing in South Africa that started early this year has been called “It’s Time”, as that was the message at least one of its organisers said God had given him.’

So I replied to him about that same title being used in a Canterbury meeting. Within half an hour of his commenting Sarah submitted this excellent, revelatory account:

‘I recently felt God saying it was a new day and I saw the sun rising. I was surprised as in Jewish culture a new day starts the evening and then its darkest before the dawn. But here was a new day like our culture is used to with the sun rising. So Malachi 4:2 makes sense to me in this context.

‘A couple or so years ago I had a vision / God video with music (which was playing on the radio), it was an Adele song “When the sky falls we all stand together” and I saw the children of God all hand in hand with Jesus amongst them. They were totally pure and clean, they were blameless. They walked together as the sun rose on a new day and then Jesus spoke to me. He said,

“It isn’t the end, it’s the beginning of an amazing and wonderful new day”.

‘I haven’t been the only one to say they get the general impression that they are walking into heaven on earth. I think we are as the Kingdom of God is expanding and now is the time that God is making all things new. I used to be scared of end times, but after that vision I wasn’t the same at all because God gave me hope through it. That there wasn’t anything to worry about, and that although I felt at the time like I was still a sinner, the reality was that I was blameless because of what Jesus did on the cross and there was hope in the new day we were all walking into, totally innocent children of God…’

To me (Richard) this is particularly pertinent because I’ve been musing about the distinct and stark contrast between the futures of the righteous and the unrighteous, between believers in Jesus and those who won’t. Scripture foretells worldwide judgments upon unregenerates but that those in Christ will safely escape Father’s wrath. Yet, in rapidly approaching that time, how does that difference manifest?  For a while I’ve wondered if the divergent, opposing theological views may somehow be reconciled…and then a ray of revelation dawned…

In considering how prophecies made by Jesus and Paul apply to the apostasy of the recent Synod I blogged about the Day of the Lord and repeat for ease of reference:

‘…it’s important not to overlook the fact that in quoting Isaiah 61 as His ‘mission statement’, Jesus opened that scroll in the synagogue and quoted the first verse only, and then stopped short (Luke 4:16-21). The Spirit of the Lord God was upon and anointed Him to preach the Good News, to heal the broken-hearted and bring release for those bound as though imprisoned. That was the purpose of His First Advent, but the subsequent verses allude to the anointing also continuing in His Second Advent, namely:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

In other words, Jesus’ mission was to proclaim the ‘Year of God’s Favour’ across Judea and Galilee and even into Samaria. It was implicit that the ‘Day of God’s Vengeance’ would follow in due course, and the subsequent revelation Jesus was given into that momentous future event was recorded by John in ‘The Apocalypse’. BUT the reference to that dread ‘Day of the Lord’ in the whole of Isaiah 61 is miniscule – it’s only one tiny clause in a long very positive, uplifting sentence!  AND the chapter’s remaining nine verses continue in the very same vein! (Check it yourself in NIV-UK.)

Therefore, whilst they may be severe shaking and demonic darkness the light, love and favour not only continues but also increases enormously for all those who are in Christ!

So thank and praise the Lord for confirming this in what You shared with Sarah…

SHAKING and RE-BUILDING the CHURCH in the UK

Thank you Lord and to Bill and UK Prophetic Words for this received yesterday because it confirms my thoughts on heresy and apostasy within the C of E. and thus encouraged publication of Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking. (NB. emphases and italicising mine).:

I AM GOING TO SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHURCH

I saw in my prayer time a vision; I saw a ruler, a plumb-line. As I contemplated this vision, thoughts and understanding came to me as to its meaning. I felt the Lord saying,

“Measure yourselves by my plumb-line. Align yourselves with my Word and my Spirit, for these two together are my plumb-line, these are my spirit-level.”

The traditional, institutional church and its recent decisions on same sex relationships had been on my mind.

I felt the Lord saying,

“Watch and see, as I do a rebuilding of my church. I am going to shake the foundations of the church in your land. The walls are going to rattle the floors will be shaken as I shake off, remove and level those and reject those who have rejected me. Those who have rejected my Word I reject. I am shaking the church out of compromise. The very foundations and structures of the church will be shaken. Many are choosing the broad path, the god of compromise. They have turned my glory into shame. How long will they love delusions? Rather than seek the truth.”

Many scriptures came to my mind, such as , “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision “. Many leaders, many of the institution of the ‘ church ‘ will have to choose between the path of compromise or the path of conflict. The path of complacency or the path of spiritual fervour. Whether to be loved by the world, or be hated by the world.

“Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you; because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY”…“My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me. Since you priests refuse to know me, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten the laws of your God.”

“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap”

I felt the Lord saying,

“This is not a time for rejoicing but a time for weeping and wailing. Look around you, many who call themselves by my name who claim to be my ‘church’ have made an alliance with satan . Their leaders have forgotten the God and Father of their fathers through whom I gave birth .They have spurned and rejected my word so I too spurn and reject them. Measure yourselves by my Word says the Lord; let it be the rule and the plumb-line. If it does not measure up then throw it out! The stones with which I built my house are built on the chief cornerstone, and on the foundation of prophets and apostles. These stones are crying out against those who have contaminated my house, as the contamination spreads the house will have to be torn down.’ The ‘church’, this institution make their decisions and their rules but did they consult me?

“Consider the future as you look at the past, how many of my ‘churches’ did not measure up, or remain ‘true’ as measured by my plumb-line?

“Many are following the traditions of men. Consider the ‘churches’ which are not my church. Are not many of them now lying derelict, have they not been turned into theatre halls, bars and restaurants? They craved after idolatry so I gave them over to their lusts and cravings. But my house will be called Holy! My true and accepted stones are not institutions but they are living stones, inscribed with ‘Holiness unto the Lord’; the filthy, the unregenerate, the sexually immoral, the idolaters will be rejected.

“For I will build my house with the plumb-line of my word and truth and by the Spirit of Holiness, my eternal word does not change.”

I hear the Lord say,

“You cry out for revival but I say cry out in repentance! My house will be called a house of prayer and yet it is through my intercessors and prayer warriors that my Spirit will bring revival through repentance and supplication.

“There is a rumbling, there is a shaking, there is change coming. You who crave revival, consider that with it comes a cost. It comes through sacrifice, with revival comes rejection by some of your peers. The religious among you will spurn you and say evil things about you.”

As I wrote these things down it was like writing a transcript as the thoughts flowed. I filtered the thoughts through my knowledge of scripture.

And I thought Lord, why do you give me the hard words? There are those who will reject this for they want the encouraging words, they want words to make them feel good. They want words of promise and edification. They want words of hope and joy.

And I remembered the scripture: “The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says the LORD of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, declares the LORD of hosts.’”

If the great awakening comes it must be marked out with repentance, changed lives that will put away immoral living who will seek Holiness and separation from the world. Let them come to us to find shelter under our care rather than the church going to the world to be friends. Be friends of sinners, but not friends with sinners. The sinner and the seeker will find love, joy and peace in an uncompromising message, an uncompromising Christ.

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.”

The Rapture Parable — The Gospel In The End Times

Did Jesus share a parable on multiple occasions in order to explain the Rapture? Is this “Rapture Parable” his most misunderstood parable? (This article was written in response to a request by a reader to explain the parable in Matt. 24:28) Our traditions sometimes determine what we think a biblical parable or illustration means. This even can…[continued in The Rapture Parable.]

Richard writes: My brief remark on the ‘Rapture’ in the post on The Shaking implies I have some reservations on that New Testament topic. Rather than rely on Paul’s letters alone, I prefer to start at what Jesus Himself says about that ‘in-gathering’, especially when we look at the original Greek rather than translations! (EG. see Fresh insights into Jesus’ role in Creation, covering implicit knowledge of the laws of quantum physics.)

Considerations of our prophesied ‘Rapture’ should not overlook Jesus’ explanation of the wheat & tares parable (Matt 13:40-43 ) and saying the Great Tribulation will be shortened for the sake of the elect (Matt 24:22). That is, they/we will go through it, even if protected (Rev 3:10).

Therefore, I highly recommend Nelson Walters’ blog and pursuant discussions of this fast approaching event to all my readers…

A new season in the prophetic

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words and to Kathy Laity for permission to re-publish this timely word posted on 4th July from the Lord on the essence of the prophetic gifting:

THE SEASON OF PROPHETS

“There is a birthing in the new prophetic season which requires caution and constant enquiring of Me to come forth in the fullness of what I desire. The enemy seeks to distort the pure, clear stream which flows directly from My throne.flows directly from My throne.

“Watch out for and root out his ploys from within your own lives. He seeks to use impure motives of the heart to derail and to discredit the move of the Prophets that I am raising up in this land.

“The true signs that I am elevating a prophetic voice are:

• Humility is stamped in their every fibre
• Being willing to honour and prefer others without pushing forward to be heard themselves
• They do not add to, exaggerate or embellish the revelation with their own additions
• They are not seeking a name for themselves but only to honour My name and everything they do points to Me, not them
• They seek unity, inter-dependency with My body and are submissive to My leaders in authority
• They are teachable and correctable, willing to admit they only see, hear and discern in part
• They have died to their own selfish ambitions
• They love My church and My people
• They have learnt to love even when bringing My correction
• They do not stand as harsh harbingers of justice but move always with a heart of mercy, weeping with the broken heart of Heaven over evil ways.

“These are the Prophets I elevate. These are the ones I share My heart with and the secrets of Heaven. Trustworthy, refined by the fire of My testing and having emerged as pure gold, who know they are nothing and nobody without Me.

“In this birthing, it will not be those who shout loudest, who self-promote or who use soulish personality that I will elevate but vessels who know they cannot stand unless I turn up. Look and discern My people for these are pure vessels and listen carefully to what I release through them.

“Some are young in age but I have accelerated their maturing. Do not look down on them or despise them for their youth. Humility recognises when I have opened a platform for someone.

“I am causing different streams of My Spirit to come together so the flow will greatly increase. The diversity of each stream will mingle and join. There will be a greater empowerment as each learns to embrace what I’ve imparted to the others. No one stream has the full revelation but now I’m drawing the tributaries to flow together into one mighty roaring river of My presence deluging the dry and barren land which will respond with rapid blooming and fruitfulness.”

Supporting Scriptures:

Philippians 2v3 – Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves.

James 3v16 – For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

Romans 12v10 – Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.

1 Peter 2v17 – Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honour the emperor

1 Corinthians 13 v4ff – Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease…..For we know in part and prophesy in part…….for now we see only a reflection as in a mirror……..The greatest of these is love.

Isaiah 35v1-2 – The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom.

Isaiah 35v6 – Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert

Hebrews 13v17 – Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.

Rev 22v1 – Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

1 Timothy 4 v 12 – Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

Paws 4 thought: Britain-shaped cloud and Smith Wigglesworth’s vision

A surprising 20 years-old memory got resurrected on musing over a scripture from a reader, itself arising from the impact of reading a prophetic word received about a cloud formation shaped like mainland Britain! So could the Lord have plugged them together?

Perhaps you too have been mulling over and seeking Him about that remarkable cloud and His alerting Chris Bennett that He’s “about to move as never before – cleansing and preparing for revival”.  If unfamiliar with that word you may wish to read it first and be in a better position to follow my musings:

When reading what Chris brought, one my friends far over the ‘Pond’ out in Tucson, Tony Puccio, had a vision of graves being opened!  His comment quotes Jesus’ well-known remark…

‘John 5:28
Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice. Take this to prayer Richard but I saw as I was reading this graves being opened. Hence the above scripture reference to those in their graves hearing His voice.’

I replied that very promise of Jesus had been stressed in John Kilpatrick’s recent teaching upon Things You Need To Know About The Soon Coming Of Christ. However, in blogging Chris’ words I hadn’t had the luxury of digesting their content, so ran off a hard-copy to read over lunch. Only then did I take especial notice of its photo:

Credit: Glocar Matt, Huddersfield, taken in east Midlands.

I sensed a number of things from the photo. Supposing that Tony may have had picked up on that too, I reply, “…you probably had this impression of opening graves because the photo clearly depicts a great subterranean burst of power – as when Holy Spirit revived Jesus in the grave!”

However, Tony clarifies with, “I saw that but that is not, at least to my knowledge, what gave me the vision. I was seeing it as I was reading your posting  (emphasis mine).

Therefore, I followed his recommendation of taking the verse and vision to the Lord and I contemplated the whole of the fifth chapter in the Gospel of John to get the verse into full context and thus put my mind into the scenario.

Jesus was being harassed by the Jewish leaders because He’d not only healed a man on a Sabbath but also instructed him to carry his mat, a forbidden activity on that day. Jesus told them He does only what He sees the Father doing and explained their relationship. Also, that it’s He himself who is the one in whom judgement is entrusted as everyone is expected to honour the Father and Jesus too, because the Father had sent Him to them.

It is a highly inspirational teaching and puts the words Chris Bennett received into a fresh light and that we’re not to marvel at such prophecy:

“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the truth, the time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself. And He has given him authority to judge because He is the Son of Man.

“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice and come out – those who have done good will rise to live and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned…” (John 5:24-29 NIV)

Further meditation directed me to the stark contrast between light and dark in that photo. It highlights and contrasts the demonic darkness in our land with the glory of God, as though it’s going to burst through and dissipate the deep evil that broods over and directs the rampant ungodliness and badness overflowing like open sewers across too many parts of our nation, especially from the mass-media.

I’m reminded of prophetical claims 15-20 years ago by church leaders across Reading that satanic opposition would arise against Christians, not as may be anticipated from jihadists but from humanistic secularists and politicians. In those days, if not earlier, I had a vivid dream of believers taking refuge within Greyfriars Church in the town centre. The doors were locked against huge demonic shapes rampaging outside.

AN OPEN VISION OF BRITAIN

Also, the central location of the sun’s corona behind that cloud, as though below ‘northern ‘England’ and its Pennines chain, speaks to me of the open vision I had in 2004 of the map of Britain and society being so rotten that the Lord could easily tear it – and it did tear!  But a huge rock (of Christ) emerged through ‘the backbone’ of Britain’. This is the location of the Pennines hills, stretching north of the Midlands all the way to Scotland (see Comments Upon The Collapse of Society). Is it ‘coincidental’ the above cloud photo was taken by a photographer from Huddersfield, Yorkshire, whilst in the east Midlands?

SMITH WIGGLESWORTH’S VISION OF BRITAIN IN REVIVAL

Smith-Wigglesworth (1859-1947)

Moreover, in musing upon the glory in that photo and the amazing outcome of that specific word about graves being opened I was suddenly reminded of the radiant glow I’d seen 20 years ago beaming from an 80 year-old’s face.  He’d been a prayer partner of Yorkshire’s renowned preacher and miracle-worker, Smith Wigglesworth (brief bio at Assemblies of God FPHC).

In 1997 Revd Norman James was stunned when blessed with an astonishing vision of Britain’s distant future and simply stuttered, “I’ve just seen what Wigglesworth saw…no wonder he wanted the Lord to keep him alive for it!” (Read Smith Wigglesworth 1947 & 1997(!) Visions + few related ones and more links).  I understood it’s of the Lord’s glory coming to Britain and being rocked by the Holy Spirit in true revival.

But now my musings stopped in their tracks. I paused as this revolutionary thought got dropped into my mind: “Did Norman see graves being opened across Britain???”

If not literal, as in John 5:28, it could perhaps be metaphorical in that most citizens are the ‘walking dead’ ie. dead to God in their spirits and souls. But is the Word of the Lord now about to come to them, if not already doing so, and causing them to awaken or revive from ‘the dead’? – and therefore hear Him and respond and thus become ‘born again’ into the fullness of everything our Father has for each one of us??

With all that in my mind and spirit, dare I expect that those times are now at the door?

That it is so, is implicit in those prophetic words brought by Chris Bennett:

“I am about to move in Great Britain as never before”…“Prepare your hearts for a visitation of My Glory. I am coming soon – in fact, I am on my way now!”

MARANATHA! – Come Lord Jesus!

[Furthermore, let’s not forget the leader of Goldhawk Baptist Church’s foresight last year of the possible significance of Wigglesworth’s vision (in the year of my birth) for 2017 – read Watching What’s Happening In The Church – Jean Darnell Vision #3.]

Meet the Real God

After Thursday evening’s soaking up gently jazzed-up worship I left Son-bathing to the song “Jesus, you are the radiance of the Father’s glory”, and confirmation of it came on Friday in Mike Parsons’ blog below. May you too be blessed with his excellent advice…

Sons Of Issachar

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott – 

New for old

God is always doing new things.

Please understand that, as we said before, He is always the same, faithful and full of lovingkindness, and He has never changed. But when we engage Him intimately, He reveals Himself in continually new, surprising and sometimes even shocking ways.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass,
Now I declare new things;
Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you”
(Isa 42:9).

“Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder things of the past.
Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it,
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert”
(Isa 43:18-19).

God is revealing new things in our day, yet often we try to cling on to what is old, comfortable and familiar, just like…

Zecharia affirms the OT understanding that Gentiles were to be enlightened by the Jews – not be incorporated within the Messianic community

My namesake discloses profound points well worth mulling over. Thank you Richard…

fellowshipofthesecret

Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”’’  (Zech8:23NASB)

This minor prophet has quite a lot to say about the “Day” (or age) to follow this which I may comment on in subsequent posts. The above verse reaffirms the fact that Old Testament prophets, John the Baptist and even Jesus Himself in the Olivet discourse spoke of the age to be heralded by Christ’s coming in glory occurring within a generation of His birth, not preceded by the age we know as the gospel/Church age in which Gentiles are summoned to play an equal part with Jews within the sanctified community  we know of as “Church” (ekklesia – literally the called-out ones). No surprise then that the twelve disciples had little clue…

2017: Year of the Breakthrough – and John 17

Am taking an hour online whilst continuing a week away and leading into another long Bank holiday weekend, only to note this paper from Apostolic Council of Elders has been sitting unpublished in my drafts folder since January!  Its reference to John 17 is personally noteworthy in view of what the Lord gave me on it to start Good Friday (yet to share). Therefore, references to this profound personal prayer of Jesus during a local church weekend followed by highly inspirational Kingdom Glory and Power 2017 event  with Dr Randy Clark in Southampton were bound to be poignant.

This was published on Generals International and comes courtesy UK Prophetic Words
There are sections in this Word for many different nations including the UK. Note these meetings took place November 14–16, 2016, and some events have already happened.

The opening verse is directly related to Mathew 11:12 on Jesus saying “the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force”, according to David Bivin and Roy Blizzard in their ‘Understanding The Difficult Words of Jesus’ (1983 page 123!). HA, on checking its NKJV my Bible opens right at the notes on that very verse: ‘Taking It by Force’!  The inescapable conclusion of such ‘serendipity’ is: the ‘Author of the Bible’ is pointing His finger at both related verses! ..:

 APOSTOLIC COUNCIL OF PROPHETIC ELDERS WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2017 THE YEAR OF THE BREAKTHROUGH

2017: The Breakthrough Year

“The One who breaks open will come up before them; they will break out. Pass through the gate, And go out by it; their king will pass before them, with the Lord at their head.”
Micah 2:13 (NKJV)

The Symbolism of the Number 17

The number 17 in scripture symbolizes “overcoming the enemy” and “complete victory.”

God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when He began to flood the earth and rested on the 17th day of the Hebrew month. Noah’s ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the seventh month of the religious year (Tishrei), right in the middle of God’s Holy period known as the Feast of Tabernacles.

The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is in the seventh month (Tishri) and on the tenth day of the Hebraic calendar. This day calls for the turning from our sins through repentance that brings us to victory.

It is the time for the breakthrough to victory.

There will be a significant increase in miracles and signs and wonders. The anointing will be so strong that it will break significant and long-standing strongholds that have plagued people’s lives.

“It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” Isaiah 10:27 (NKJV)

For the Lord says, “My people are entering into an overcoming season that will produce great breakthroughs. For the enemy has come in like a flood, but I, the Lord, am releasing great victories. I will stem the tide of violence. I will bring peace to the land. I will bring an awakening! I will release revival!” Continue reading

Simon Braker: A new season and restoration of the Apostolic Church

The Church has Entered into a New Season and Fulfilment of the Vision of the Restoration of the Apostolic Church

In the year 2000 the Lord took me into a vision:

I saw a group of men and women building a structure out of wood; it looked about the size and shape of a football pitch and what was being built looked like a greenhouse without the glass.

Periodically the people would all gather in the middle to cry out to God for him to come but there was no answer.

This resulted in them getting more wood to be added to the structure, but still when they called on God there was no answer.

I then began to hear a sound coming from a large crowd of people; as they got closer I could hear that they were shouting, ‘there is a new season!’

As they shouted this they smashed through the structure the others were building. Some of the builders began to fight with the new crowd; others just sank to the floor in despair.

Another group grabbed some of the old structure and started to try to rebuild it in another location.

Then one last group got up and joined the new group.

I then was taken into a second vision:

I saw a hand with its thumb missing, suddenly the thumb was added and I heard the Lord say When the thumb is restored the function of the other fingers and hand is redefined and restored.”

I understood the two visions were one vision as they both reflected the promise of the restoration of the Apostolic church.

Over the last few weeks I have found the Lord reminding me of this vision and had the sense that we have entered into the fulfilment of the vision in these days.

The vision is more than simply the restoration of the role of apostle to the church; it is the restoration of the full fivefold ministry and the raising up of a church of mobilised saints, who know their call and have broken free from the four walls of temple based religion and shifted into a mission focused movement.

Simon Braker, School of the Spirit, Leicester 6th April 2017

RB Notes:

Neville Johnson: new edition of ‘Our Finest Hour’ – warning re. USA

Received news this morning from Mark Johnson at The Academy of Light in Australia of the latest e-magazine of insights from renowned prophetical voices. It has an extra item about one of the anti-christ spirit’s current activities in the USA (the Official War Against Trump), to which my Footnote refers:

‘Winds of change are now blowing across the world and the church. This year will see enormous changes occurring across nations, affecting people and the church of Jesus Christ. Birth pangs are now beginning in earnest, with contractions coming more quickly. The whole of creation is groaning and this is a reflection of the battle between light and darkness.

‘God’s word makes it very clear that the true church will reach its greatest glory during the darkest times that this world has ever known.  It is of great significance that the best wine has been reserved for this generation. Many things have been reserved for this last generation which can be distilled into one word, fullness. The cup of iniquity is filling up and the fullness of God’s purposes for the church is now upon us. The fullness of our salvation, that perfect man is about to emerge.

‘Til we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: (Ephesians 4:13)

‘I trust that you will enjoy and be blessed by this edition of Our Finest Hour.’

Blessings

Footnote (RB):

In my coverage of Obama’s Cairo Speech of July 2009 I expressed reservations about the claims of that new president of the United States being a brother in Christ. Also noted was his favour upon the notorious Muslim Brotherhood, the extremism of which I’d read in Egyptian Mark Gabriel’s personal account Islam and Terrorism. (He’s a former professor of Islam and of Islamic history at the prestigious Al-Azhar university – see this post).

I do not wish to be judgmental yet had noted knowledgeable writers’ assertions of Obama being a crypto-Muslim, or even Antichrist itself. The overwhelming evidence of his two terms supports the sentiment of such claims of his furtherance of the Antichrist’s agenda; not only against the nation he led, and especially Bible-believing Christians, but also against the Jewish nation of Israel – and in doing so brought the Genesis 12 curse for failing to bless those people upon the American people.

Read in the download of that ‘yesterday’ man’s reprehensible activities in Organising For Action, along with George Soros’ United To Protect Democracy, in plotting to sabotage his duly elected successor President Donald Trump. Never in the history of modern America have such undemocratic, marxist-style activities been undertaken and countenanced.

Read more about this in Paul Sperry’s Opinion in New York Post, which is quoted by William Koenig from his desk in the White House. In his Eye-View, Bill also cites Christian Post on Obama’s lifelong friend, marxist (?) fellow-traveller and supposed clergyman, Jim Wallis, as starting a witch-hunt against true, righteous Christians!  This crank claims White Evangelicals Voting for Trump Represents “A Crisis in the Church”!!

Preceding those two items quoted at length and under the sub-head Obama Called Himself a Christian, but:  Bill also cites dozens of examples of Obama’s deliberate failure to uphold Christian beliefs, twisting of scripture and causing deep damage to the church and Christians – not to mention Obama’s refusal to stand against persecution of Christians!!!

In view of recent words on the parable of wheat and tares now coming into play, perhaps the Lord is already arranging for the extraction of those tares from His harvest?

Big Ben arises with continual ‘wake up’  

Mulling over the recent midnight theme, including the dream from o’er Pond, I’m struck by Saturday’s follow-up from Tony that may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will (see Telegraph link and Big Ben & Midnight – the dream to which Tony refers was flagged up in Visitation Time – I Am Coming With My Power Like Fire).

My Dreams and Visions

In August of 2016 I had the following vision.

I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile. Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged
The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.

It’s…
