Bobby Conner: strategies for advancing to next new level

Why should I ever be surprised at what turns up from the Lord?

Here’s yet another reference to Hebrews 6; the one with the ‘Age to Come’ verses. AND it lines up with the current, albeit unplanned, focus upon training for ruling and reigning together with Jesus in The Millennium.

I’m grateful to Rose for drawing this message to my attention. It is special because of its succinct emphasis upon Jesus’ command, “Occupy until I come!”, which is also the thesis ‘foremost Bible teacher’ and Bishop of Liverpool, J.C. Ryle makes in his classic book ‘Are You Ready For The End Of Time?’ (1867). 21st Century prophet Bobby Conner writes:

DISCOVER A NEW WAY FOR A NEW DAY

2019-01-01
No Delay It’s Time to Proceed to the Next New Level – Possess The Land! A Big Word, For Now, Is “Occupy!”

In a profound encounter, the Spirit of God said, “It is time to go to the next new level!” I was instructed to prepare a remnant of Believers to position themselves to advance proceeding to the next new level, to possess the Land, and to possess and occupy! I said, “Lord, I don’t like the word remnant, it seems too selective.” He replied, “Don’t misunderstand; this invitation of advancement is open to all who will obey. Gender or age makes no difference, it is an issue of the heart.” All are called, but few will come!

The Peril of Falling Away

Don’t allow yourself to stagnate and become callous and cold, now is the time to awake from slumber and rouse to reality (see Romans 13:11-14)! Arise and shine and push-on to new heights (see Isaiah 60:1-5). The Spirit of Truth is desiring to release profound awesome revelation for any who will seek to come higher. If you contend and earnestly seek this can be a season that the eyes of your heart are flooded with revelatory light (see Ephesians 1:17-18). We must go dig deeper into the Word of God to discover the ways of God

Therefore, let us get past the elementary stage in the teachings about the Christ, advancing on to maturity and perfection and spiritual completeness, [doing this] without laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of teaching about washings (ritual purifications), the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. [These are all important matters in which you should have been proficient long ago.] And we will do this [that is, proceed to maturity] if God permits. (Hebrews 6:1-3 AMP)

It is time for the Prophetic Seers to go into the Courts of Heaven, behind the veil acquiring the Divine plans and purposes of God. The Spirit of Truth stands ready to release the Divine strategies and blueprints of heaven. This is not a time to be vague and dim, but we must be bright and alert clear and committed to advance the King in His Kingdom.

Divine Dissatisfaction Producing a Holy Hunger!

The Spirit of God is fanning the flame of discontentment within the heart of many. We can’t remain satisfied and content with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth. “Enough is enough!” Ask yourself this question: Am I willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion? This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first.

We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near (see Isaiah 55:6). We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His Kingdom our top priority, He will take care of everything else (see Matthew 6:33).

There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment, many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual.

This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level. Jesus states, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” The Amplified Bible reveals, “those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God)…shall be completely satisfied!” (see Matthew 5:6).

It’s time to remove all lids of limitations off and believe God for big things, assured that He is able to do much more than we could as or even think (see Ephesians 3:20-21). One way not to miss God’s new thing is don’t think it is already here. Yes, we are so thankful and grateful for all that God is doing, yet there is much more. The promise is that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God’s glory (see Numbers 14:21 and Habakkuk 2:14).

The Spirit of God is stirring our souls and awakening our hearts to seek deeper depths and higher heights. This is the time for you to go all out for Christ and the Kingdom of God. Don’t hold back; surrender yourself entirely to the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The statement is so true: deep is calling to deep (see Psalm 42:7).

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.Isaiah 43:19

This is a promise of transformational power being released, giving and unction to function. A roadway in the rugged wilderness and flowing refreshing rivers in the dry, barren desert. Nothing is too hard for our God (see Job 42:2 and Genesis 18:14)!

You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve], which you have not known.

They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, “Behold, I knew them!” — Isaiah 48:6-7 (AMPC)

These new things are called into reality by the prophetic proclamation. They are decreed, and God brings them into reality.

We do not have time to delay, the Spirit of Truth is preparing a remnant to proceed to the next new level; we must advance and make progress(see Ephesians 5:14-15). In this next new level, we will begin to grasp a higher, clearer insight into the majesty of the Master. Prepare to behold the living Lord Jesus in a much clearer way.

It is time to taste the hidden manna reserved for over-comers revealed in Revelation 2:17:
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone, a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”

I pray that 2019 will be filled with the overflowing favor of God upon you and your loved ones. Embrace the promises of God’s new day. Expect to see God’s mighty power!

1989 > 2009 > 2019 > The Age To Come

Arising from references to The Divine Council and Millennium training in comments on a prophetic word on the UK Government, and how the Church can influence it by virtue of its Kingdom authority, a reader asked me about such training within churches.

It’s an excellent question in view of the implications in that word, and in others brought by Bobby Conner, Neville JohnsonLana Vawser and Veronika West to name a few, on bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth (eg, Lana on prayer lives being filled with holy fire).

Also, I’m aware of some ministries that equip us for service in that event:

  • Christian International Europe (Dr Sharon Stone) in Windsor, Berks
  • Catch The Fire in Birmingham, Bournemouth, Wembley
  • Bethel Church, Redding, CA & White Dove Ministries AL, in USA.
  • Partners in Harvest International.

In replying to that reader I sent a link to Bible and ancient languages scholar Dr Michael Heiser, as well as this excellent video received earlier from Paul Keith Davis, founder and leader of White Dove Ministries, about prophetic models from and operating in “The Age to Come” :

Personally, this is all highly encouraging and brings to mind what was indicated to me about it 7 years ago as ‘The Book Beyond the Bible’, which I blogged about in Supermoon Monday’s Blood Moon and The Age To Come as below:

‘At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, beyond The Apocalypse, or Revelation given to Jesus Christ, for showing to and recording by His close disciple and apostle, John.

‘As noted in Revival 1: glory stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!

‘That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.’

About 10 years ago I was particularly blessed at a conference in Bath where Paul Keith was teaching. As a listed art-deco cinema, the sanctuary area of Bath City Church has cinema seats sloping down to a broad, deep level floor in front of a raised platform. I recall him teaching from that floor when he got a prophetic word for someone sitting in the rear of the auditorium. Suddenly, he strode up an aisle to deliver it closer to the person. However, whilst passing me in an aisle-seat on his left, he turned to look directly at me and told me: “Await His return!” – Wow, was I undone!

So although Paul Keith was about to deliver a word he must have been diverted by the Holy Spirit to convey a brief command to me – one that must be mightily important for me to know and obey as an essential part of my destiny!  So, I can but trust it’s true!

Also, I’m not the only one having grounds for believing in the distinct possibility of Jesus Christ returning in their lifetime. A friend informed me he knows a lady in her 80’s who’s assured she will live to witness that event. And Nicholas, author of the previous post on moving into the Millennium is of a similar mind.

Why the dates in this post’s header?  1989 is when I encountered Jesus. 2009 is when I began writing about End-times and biblical and contemporary prophecies.

Lastly, let’s remind ourselves that the ‘Age To Come’ has been accessible to disciples since the earliest days of the pristine church, as witnessed by the author of the book to the Hebrews (New King James Version):

The Peril of Not Progressing

6 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this [b]we will do if God permits.

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, [c]if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

SELAH

Moving into the Millennium

This by Nicholas is especially recommended for I suspected he’d follow up on our short public and private discussion on this topic by publishing his thoughts on this matter, on which I too have prepared a post on The Age To Come to follow this re-blog. In particular, we’re on the same page re last sentence of his opening paragraph…

All Along the Watchtower

Many contributors and readers at AATW know that I believe the return of Christ is near. I will not state a year or make any of the specific predictions that date-setters do. I do not believe He will return in the next year; all I can say is that, in my spirit, I feel the coming and believe it will be within my lifetime.

I have held this belief for some time. It is born from an intuition, deep within, and from reading Scripture. Jesus in His Olivet Discourse gave a sequence to help us understand when His return would be near: the Abomination of Desolation; the Great Tribulation; the darkening of the sky; the sign of the Son of Man and the return of Jesus on the clouds.

Without a proper understanding of this sequence, the Olivet Discourse becomes unintelligible. The intertextuality between the Olivet Discourse and the Book…

Fire is about to fall on our prayer lives – Lana Vawser/CTNTP

This word brought by Lana Vawser on 7th December begins to open up believers’ role in KIngdom government, referred to in the word on UK government and comments thereupon to ‘Millennium training’ .

There are many ‘prophetic words’ out there at the moment, so CTNTP is careful to weigh them and to only pass on those which clearly ‘resonate’ with the vision the The Lord has already given us. We have just had this prophetic word drawn to our attention and it resonates most strongly! If you are […]

The Zerubbabel Commission in the United Kingdom

Thank you to the Lord and Yvonne Coombs for this encouraging word posted on UK Prophetic Words on 10th December:

THE ZERUBBABEL COMMISSION – THE UNITED KINGDOM SHALL BE MY LIGHT

I had a dream that an old school became a huge theme park that had a ‘Harry Potter’ feel to it. It was like it had melded from one to another without anyone noticing and am reminded straight away of how the blinding deception has taken a stronghold over the earth for so long and as I saw people wandering around having fun, laughing and enjoying themselves, there were suddenly great giants that I couldn’t see but felt their power as they tore up the ground, the buildings and anyone in them who didn’t leave. They were focused on total destruction and succeeded to bring this park to a pile of rubble in moments.

In prayer I asked what this dream meant, “Who were these giants Lord?”  I was quickened to Isaiah 54:17 – “No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.’

I heard the words ‘Zerubbabel Commissioners’ and the Lord says, “Declare every curse and spell has fallen to the ground and there is no power in them”.

I see in my mind’s eye, a vision of mountains flattening out and the valleys leveling with them as Psalm 23 we shall fear no evil for His rod and staff comfort us, that He is beginning to use these Commissioners to pave the way for His harvest fulfillment, that as Zerubbabel was appointed as one of the initial leaders who supervised the reconstruction of the Jerusalem temple with the help of Joshua, the high priest, the Lord is suddenly about to flatten the ground to prepare the way, Zechariah 4:7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it…for the Lord says,“I AM THE ROSE OF SHARON AND I BLOOM IN FULL AS MY CHILDREN SHALL NOW ARISE AND THE REMNANT THAT HAS AWOKEN FROM SLUMBER SHALL DECLARE AND DECREE THAT MY SPIRIT IS LOOSED UPON THE EARTH AND THE UNITED KINGDOM SHALL BE MY LIGHT!”

As this movement suddenly happens, most of the bride that still sleeps shall awaken at the impact of what they witness and set hearts burning to join and come alongside the rest, that this will be seen through a Mighty surge of boldness and courage of the swords being wielded in power from on High, a new power not known before upon this earth!

Haggai 2:23 “But when this happens”, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, “I will honor you, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, my servant. I will make you like a signet ring on my finger,” says the LORD, “for I have chosen you. I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!” I was then led to Isaiah 6:6 ‘The one with the black horses is going toward the north country, the one with the white horses toward the west, and the one with the dappled horses toward the south.’ The Lord is making it clear here that HIS PROVIDENCE IS ABOUT TO MOVE SWIFTLY UPON THE EARTH.

A commissioner is, in principle, a member of a commission or an individual who has been given a commission (official charge or authority to do something). In practice, the title of commissioner has evolved to include a variety of senior officials, often sitting on a specific commission.

These Commissioners are already in movement, from the living-room warriors uplifting those on the front line, it’s a work of UNITY THAT HAS BEGUN, can you see it or perceive it? But wait until the weight of the Holy Spirit comes in full force any time NOW! “IT BEGINS!” SAYS THE LORD, “THE MOMENTUM OF THE SPIRIT HAS BEGUN BELOVED”.

Leisa Ebere: God is marking time to cleanse His Bride (GPS#24.4)

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.”

GPS #19: new strategies and unprecedented acceleration

Heaven’s Global Prophecy Signalling system has gone off once again!

Whilst learning about Father’s call to seek Him for strategies by which to pray and make declarations, one of many responses brings a fresh prophetical perspective from Neil Mackereth in Winchester, Hants – which itself gets ‘fleshed out’ by Kevin Zadai in a video recorded in Phoenix – and then in comes a message from t’other side of our planetary ‘Big Ball’ sent by Lana Vawser living in Queensland, Australia!

If you listened to Kevin’s account of what he learned about prophecy and Apostle John’s trip into the future where he sees Jesus’ return, you may have noted his reference to the increased acceleration in angelic activity. Watch video from 13:30 mark – “Jesus said, “At this time we’re in now, the angels have been sent at the end of this Age because we’re behind the curve… Angels always show up at the end of a Dispensation”…to accelerate and catch us up into the proper track we should be at…“)

(Also see GPS#15 the synchronisation of earth’s time with heaven’s.)

That is, things are going to accelerate! This isn’t news to us because “Acceleration” has often resounded on this blog.

Here’s what Lana published yesterday (click header for original):

THE ACCELERATION THAT HE IS LEADING YOU INTO IS UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED BEFORE!! DELAY IS BREAKING!!

The Lord has been speaking to me about acceleration and delay for a while now. There has been an intense battle that many of you have been facing this year and for many there feels like there has been a delay in the breakthrough of the promises of God.

There indeed has been an intense battle over what the Lord has spoken to you, but what the Lord said is STILL TRUE. The Lord cannot lie and He is faithful. Do not allow your circumstances to tell you otherwise.

UNPRECEDENTED ACCELERATION ESPECIALLY FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR!!

The Lord spoke to me that the enemy is fighting against His promises to bring some significant delays, because for the remainder of this year He is leading His people into a level of acceleration that is unlike anything they have experienced before.

Do not be discouraged by the delay, the enemy has been fighting hard against God’s promises in your life because you are stepping into SIGNIFICANT acceleration. Don’t give up right before the winds of acceleration increase. That’s the enemy’s hope, he wants you to give up right before you enter into this new realm of ACCELERATION.

IN THIS UNPRECEDENTED ACCELERATION, YESTERDAY’S STRATEGIES AND BLUEPRINTS WON’T WORK

The Lord spoke to me that in this unprecedented acceleration that has already begun and is going to MAJORLY increase for the rest of the year, yesterday’s blueprints and strategies won’t work. The Lord showed me that right now because of the battle and the circumstances many are walking the “pathway forward” hasn’t been clear, and in that “unknown” there’s a temptation to rely on the strategy of yesterday, but the Lord spoke to me that there are NEW STRATEGIES AND BLUEPRINTS for the rest of this year in stewarding and walking in this new level of acceleration.

The Lord is calling His people to seek Him for the wisdom and strategy to steward the acceleration. There is a fresh rain of revelation from heaven where the Lord is releasing the KEYS you need to walk in the acceleration He is releasing. As you walk in this new season of acceleration, you will understand more and more why the delay has been SO intense and the battle raging.

BACK TO THE HEART

In the battle that has been raging the enemy has sought to distract the people of God from going deeper in intimacy with the Lord and taking hold of all He is saying and releasing. I heard the Lord say “BACK TO THE HEART”.

In the acceleration that’s increasing and going to significantly increase for the rest of this year, it is IMPERATIVE that the people of God go “BACK TO THE HEART” if they have swayed.

In order to steward the season of acceleration and walk in all the Lord is releasing, we must live close to the heart of God. We must continually live in a place of intimacy in His heart. Hearing what He is saying, feeling His heartbeat and walking to the rhythm of His heart, not to the rhythm of what ‘man does, says or expects’ or the ‘ways of the world’. It is more important than ever in this season of acceleration and increase that’s taking place, to be INTENTIONAL to stay close to the heart of God. He is looking for purity and integrity in the stewardship of the acceleration.

For many of the blueprints and strategies the Lord is releasing are so new and so fresh, that it will require radical obedience, wisdom and discernment to move in. The Lord is releasing revelation of these strategies from His Word and in dreams in such significant ways, the prayer of God’s people must be for wisdom and discernment more than ever. There is a significant increase of pioneering that is taking place in the release of these strategies and blueprints.

THE RE-IGNITING OF THE “WHY” AND INCREASE OF PASSION IN GOING “BACK TO THE HEART”

The Lord showed me that a significant reigniting of the “WHY” is going to take place in this season of acceleration. Many of you have been SO wearied by the battle and the delays you have constantly faced, I felt the encouragement of the Lord, that the Spirit of God is going to reignite the “WHY” in your life.

I heard the Lord say “I AM TAKING MY PEOPLE BACK TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER”. He is clearing away all the fog, the discouragement, the trauma, the disappointment, the weariness and in encountering His heart afresh, He is taking His people back to the heart of the matter. Back to the “WHY” of the vision and calling He has given them. Even if it looks different in this season of acceleration to what it has, the Lord is going to REIGNITE your WHY and He is going to remind you again of your WHY.

Significant encounters with Jesus are happening and going to increase. There is a significant shift taking place where the people of God are going to see the Glory of God and the fear of the Lord in such beautiful and splendid ways, your WHY will be refreshed. It’s FOR HIM and ABOUT HIM! Your passion will be reignited to move into all He has for you and the calling and anointing over your life. Your joy will be restored and a new and fresh passion for all He has called you to.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO CRY, NOW IS THE TIME TO FLY!

I heard the words “Now is not the time to cry, now is the time to fly” and the Lord showed me that the enemy is working hard to discourage God’s people through circumstances and the battle to the point where their heads will hang low in weeping despair and moving further into hope deferred.

Friends, I encourage you today.. RAISE YOUR FAITH! The Lord has decreed this is your season to FLY. To fly high above all the noise and chaos around you, to fly triumphantly, to fly in greater acceleration on the wind of His Spirit. To not stay bogged down on the ground in discouragement and despair but to put your HOPE IN GOD, because HE IS COMING THROUGH and WILL COME THROUGH! There is a reason for the battle and the reason is because you are going to see Him move in a way you have NEVER seen Him move before. You MUST hold on. You MUST stand your ground. You MUST remain in the Word. You MUST not give up. The shift is taking place and it’s your time to FLY!

Prophetic strategy cont’d – a heavenly perspective

Neil Mackereth’s remarks upon prophetic strategy in his email to me popped into mind upon watching Kevin Zadai explain the spiritual dynamics of prophesying according to the will of God, which he’d learned as a result of encountering the Lord Jesus when he died during a dental procedure. It starts 10 minutes into this fascinating half-hour (I’ve embedded to begin at 00m:00s but it persists in later start; so maybe it’s emphasising the significance of Kevin’s words! Please scroll back to the 1 min mark for full video):

Kevin claims to have died at the age of 31 but was returned to life 45 minutes later. Yet to him it seemed 6 days had elapsed whilst meeting Jesus and receiving His profound instruction.

Having watched some half-hour ‘celebrity chats’ plus lengthier conference sessions, I’m most impressed with his character and way of integrating scripture into a number of his experiences, as well as not being sensationalist in his views, which line up with my own understanding.

In particular, I’m delighted with his description of Jesus’ interaction with Time, its nature and that of prophecy. My personal descriptor of Jesus as Lord of Lords is of Him being ‘Always Now’, and Kevin uses those terms in a similar vein.

My preferred interviews are with Patricia King, who brings the scripture supporting his claim before Kevin tells how and what happened (at 2:50 this video) and of his book  Praying From Heavenly Realms – she kindly speaks to those who were, like him, born out of wedlock – and with Susan Cheatham (above). Others interrupt too often, or add dramatisations of meeting Jesus and angels; btw Kevin and Sid Roth are good friends. For a slower, analytical examination of what happened to Kevin see split-screen interview with rabbi Eric Walker, who questions him from the perspective of near-death and out-of-the body experiences.

For in-depth teaching watch conferences: eg 11th August afternoon and evening.at Dalton, Georgia (where a Bible continues to produce oil created by God, not by man, since 27th January 2017, see introductory minutes of video.)

Rallying Calls to Prayer – 2: Prophetic Strategy

In The Rallying Cry to Prayer the Cryers write, “We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us; “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, I will show you how to do it.” He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change!”

My friend Neil Mackereth, one of the valued contributors to this blog’s material on the EU and Brexit (as here and here) and author of Signs, wrote to me on Friday with these intriguing insights:

Dear Ginny, Dear Richard,

‘I felt a call to respond to the “frinkle” moment I had on reading your very recent call to prayer. It is truly amazing how themes are developed, by God giving to various people different pieces of the jigsaw.

‘The other morning I woke with the phrase “the darkest hour is just before dawn” in my mind. The conviction that we are now in the most intense time of prophetic fulfillment was very strong, as was the realisation that the return of Jesus (the second advent) will render biblical prophecy obsolete (I know there will be other millennial events to follow but we won’t need the Bible to tell us about them).

‘My thoughts were directed to the urgent need for prayer. I was reminded that the Old Testament prophets were often the lone recipients of God’s guidance for the people. In particular, Daniel saw it as essential to intercede on behalf of the people, to plead for the prophetic fulfillment of the end of 70 years of exile. Also, Elijah saw himself as the sole prophet of God against 450 prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:22)

‘I am convinced that in our “New Testament” times the strategy has changed. Each “prophet” receives an element of a much bigger picture and it requires unity for the jigsaw to be completed. Friends of God live in the stream of prophetic enlightenment and recognise the signs of the times. With information and understanding comes responsibility!

‘Put another way, there are now many “mini-Elijahs” in the Christian community and, by the unifying process of networking, their various prayer groups will become the Elijah church: an essential bedrock which God is establishing in this nation and beyond.

‘Returning to 1 Kings 18, at verse 21 Elijah says “How long will you waver between two opinions” which might well be the mantra for prayer groups today. Do we really believe God is in charge? Do we really believe that God gives us signs (e.g. the EU displaying the “badges” of Babylon)? Do we really believe that God made a covenant with Abraham and his descendants? Answers to these sample questions will influence our views and prayers on God and Mammon, Replacement theology, Brexit and so on.

‘Lastly, it was made clear to me that Christians are not to just sit in the audience watching the play. We are also players (audience participation!) and need to study the script in order to fulfill our roles in the unfolding drama…’

AMEN my friend and how amazingly this fits into what I’ve recently learned, as will be revealed in a video to appear in the next post!

Rallying Calls to Prayer – 1: A Vast Army

When the servant of the man of God arose early and went out there was an army surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And (so) his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”

Elisha answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And he prayed and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6:15-17 NKJV)

Click image to read about Culture Changers

The urgent Rallying Cry penned by Hugh and Ginny Cryer, republished here last Thursday, invites readers to join them because, “We believe that the Lord is about to move powerfully in this nation once again. This time not just on the indigenous people of this land as in Wesley and Whitfield’s time but now in present day UK…

“For this move of God to come, I believe that the Lord is wanting to raise up an army and that we are all part of that army. His army for His battle for Britain today. Just as Rees Howells wrote about the battle for the skies and the heavenlies in 1940, so we are now called to wage war in the same way…”

They’re not alone in sensing the importance of such a holy call to Christians in Britain, and I thank everyone who’s commented on the blog or contacted me direct. Edmund Phillimore emailed the next day and kindly permits me to quote him:

‘Yesterday at New Wine, James Aladurin of Prayer Storm spoke twice calling for people to become passionate prayer warriors birthing the revival we long to see.

‘He (told) how in 2017 the Lord drew his attention to Acts 12. When Herod found popularity following his executing James, he arrested Peter. Peter was asleep, in chains and in prison. But he was delivered by the angel as the church prayed through the night. He sensed the Lord saying that both church and nation are like Peter. There is an apostolic calling on the U.K. to take the gospel to the nations and like Peter they are asleep, in chains in prison. But there is also the church of constant prayer. Just as the prayers of the church in Jerusalem led to Peter being set free supernaturally, so God will deliver church and nation in response to the prayers of his people. Wake up prayer warriors!

‘I believe many at New Wine responded to James’ call. The Lord is on the move.’

Also, he noted that on Thursday UK Prophetic Words had republished a word Veronika West had brought in which she saw an army of the Lord advancing. I’d noticed it some days earlier on her Facebook dated 30 July. It reads:

A MIGHTY ARMY IS RISING; DIVINE TRANSITION

‘LOOK! SEE there is A mighty Army that is Now MOVING and advancing upon the earth, there is a divine deployment in the camp of the Lord, THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD ARE TAKING NEW GROUND AND OCCUPYING NEW TERRITORY. The Season of Great Change and Divine Transition is NOW upon us.

“LISTEN! Do you HEAR The Sound of many trumpets, THE sound of the Shofar”? IT’S TIME TO BREAK CAMP AND MOVE FROM THIS PLACE OF BONDAGE AND STALE BREAD, the Land OF PROMISE, PURPOSE AND MANIFEST POWER IS BEFORE US.

‘I hear the Spirit say, “WARRIORS RISE UP AND TAKE YOUR PLACE ON THE FRONT-LINE OF BATTLE, FEAR NOT FOR THE GIANTS STAND POWERLESS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE KING, SEE, I HAVE PUT VICTORY IN YOUR MOUTH, NOW Open your mouths and I will fill it, speak forth My Word and it will go forth to pierce and penetrate the heart of darkness in the land. WATCH! As the AUTHORITY and the transforming Power of My Word goes forth to move and make way, for the Rivers of My Glory to Come and Break forth upon the Nations.

“COME UP HIGHER, YES! Let us go up together to the high places, where the fragrance of the prayers and Praises of My PEOPLE fill My nostrils. Have I not said, the Books that have been sealed will now be opened? WATCH! As My Transforming Glory will Come, WATCH! As My Justice and Vindication will Come, YES! WATCH! As My Compensation will come, For I will pour out My Healing and Restoration Power upon the people of the land. Now Listen! Beloved You must Eat My Word, Speak My Word and NOW Run with the Roar of My Resurrection and Redemptive Power”, says God.

‘Friends, I see the Spirit of Revelation and Wisdom manifesting mightily and powerfully in the hearts and minds of God’s people in this Season causing many to Arise in greater power to go forth and declare their righteousness by His blood. Strongholds and strangleholds of the enemy are being dismantled and broken, I See an Army of Warriors begin to conquer and overcome those things that seemed impossible in the past, the weak are being made STRONG. I hear the sound of a war cry of Victory over the people of God, satan is defeated, the hand of God has overturned and overthrown every situation that has seemed insurmountable and impossible for many.

‘Listen! the ground is fertile and the seeds that you have sown in the last season will SUDDENLY AND QUICKLY COME FORTH, THE SEASON OF Abundant Harvest is upon us. The HAND of God is now moving with greater Acceleration and Momentum UPON THE EARTH, I SEE a SUPERNATURAL SHIFT taking place in the heavenlies which will now begin to manifest in the midst of you, WATCH AND EXPECT A DIVINE MOVE OF RESTORATION, TIMELY REVERSALS AND UNEXPECTED RECOMPENSE in every area in your life where the devourer came to rob, Kill and Destroy. hindrance that has drained and stifled your momentum is being uprooted and removed, there is a clear pathway forming in front of you. A pathway that leads to fruitfulness and Increase. The Spirit of God has equipped and empowered you to Stand and be Strong in the conflict, there is a battle that rages in the heavens on your behalf, be assured of His Blood that has overcome every demonic assignment and onslaught. He has given you weapons to war and to win, Now Take hold of His Peace and His Salvation, take Hold of His Righteousness and His Faith, Let His Spirit and His Truth guide and direct you, I Prophesy you are Standing in His Victory in this hour.
Hope is rising, I Prophesy it’s a New Day and a New Dawn for the faithful ones of God.

‘I see the finger God begin to Stretch you beyond your comfort zone, taking you beyond the borders of the familiarity and safety, He is enlarging you and preparing you for appointed times and seasons, you are being reset and recalibrated for these are indeed set times, times of watching and waiting, Heaven is about to move, there is a release of the power of His presence, I Prophesy His promises will be made manifest upon the earth. Get ready for the Suddenlies of God will begin to sweep across the nations like Wild Fires as the cries of repentance go forth, Be Expectant for a display of God’s Glory that shall be seen on earth like never before.’

WATCH and PRAY

wpc_logoJane Holloway‚National Prayer Director at Birmingham’s World Prayer Centre, also commented upon the Rallying Cry:

“Great to see this.. Can you pass on to them that there are many such groups all over the UK.. Great to know they are meeting to seek God in this battle for the soul of the nation season…people are meeting in groups in towns, cities, villages, there are over 50+ expressions of houses of prayer and worship etc..”

A Rallying Cry to Prayer – Your Country Needs You!

Someone was unable to go with friends from our church to a Kingdom Come conference in West Sussex and we were offered her place. Nina already had an appointment, so I took an unscheduled seat in their car and en-route was pleasantly surprised to learn what and whom we have in common! And that soon connected into this post!

I learned of our friends’ attendance several years ago at Winchester Vineyard church, where we went for monthly Encounter evenings (and prophecy courses) and got to know pastors Hugh and Ginny Cryer.

As a result of a ‘God-incidence’ in 2015 I introduced readers to them and their ministry ‘Culture Changers – Reconnecting His Family’ (as told in Heidi Baker, Cindy Jacobs: Prophetic Messages Applied and Verified).

We keep in touch through the monthly ‘E-zine’ but Ginny emailed asking if I’d publish the latest, which I’d already thought about and so replied, “Something in my spirit is excited about this and its timing.”

As Ginny says, “Although these are just little shoots – I feel that the Lord is really in this too.” I too am no great pray-er – so join in the Cryer’s request and rise up as ...

A VAST ARMY

I write this with urgency. We believe that the Lord is about to move powerfully in this nation once again. This time not just on the indigenous people of this land as in Wesley and Whitfield’s time but now in present day UK, where we are represented by many different tribes and nations who have settled here and can call themselves British.

For this move of God to come, I believe that the Lord is wanting to raise up an army and that we are all part of that army. His army for His battle for Britain today. Just as Rees Howells wrote about the battle for the skies and the heavenlies in 1940, so we are now called to wage war in the same way.

To be perfectly honest, Hugh and I do not feel we are great “pray-ers” and I want you to know that this letter is for those of you like us. To be even more candid, our hearts rather sank when we felt the Lord calling us to obediently follow Him to rally prayer gatherings. Yet we believe that the Lord has spoken to us from Ezekiel 37 – that we are like dry bones and that there is so much more that the Lord wants to pour into us – His very life! For that to happen He is showing us our need and wanting us to start to pray without perhaps always feeling the equipping to do so.

Will you join us? Will you, in this summer season of rest and holiday, when the flesh may crave “not now”; will you answer this call?

We really believe that as we all ask Him who we could gather and pray with (regardless of denomination or not), He will pull our dry bones together supernaturally and a vast army will arise, and it will be His doing to save a nation that is in desperate need.

“SO THAT THEY WILL NOT PERISH”

Does your heart sink? If so I would ask you to reflect on Jonah when an unbelieving sea captain asked him to call on his God but Jonah was asleep. The captain said incredulously, “How can you sleep? Get up and call on your god! Maybe he will take notice of us so that we will not perish” (Jonah 1:6).

The thing that particularly cut me to the quick was the point that it is not about us, but about them! About all the peoples that do not know Him in our nation. Dear friends, this is not about how we feel either. It is about who we are. The Lord is calling ALL His people to come together in our homes and other venues to pray for our nation

We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us – “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, “I will show you how to do it.” He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change! Will you answer this call to the “unqualified”?

YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU!

Whether you live in the UK or not, I felt the Lord say that this applies to you too. If you are not living in the UK, please ask the Lord what your response should be, as our joint response is to serve Him.

So this is a time for action – a time to ask and pray about what YOUR response might be as part of an army which may usher in a fresh move of the Spirit of God in our nation. The issues are above politics, they concern the spiritual future of our nation We need His family to be reconnected and to call upon God, to forget our political differences and as a “Christian” nation to pray that God’s will shall increasingly be done on earth here as in heaven.

WILL YOU JOIN US?

A few months ago I had a text from a friend in Newbury. It was abundantly clear that his heart was to see this nation turned around once more. Since then we have met together in another home equidistant between him and us and our little gathering has begun to grow.

Indeed he has just sent me this prophetic word for the UK [previous post] which I think you would want to see. Here is an excerpt from it which is very encouraging for us as Culture Changers. Not least, as it talks of the importance of keeping the home fires burning at this time:-

“I see prayer gatherings beginning to emerge in the United Kingdom in an immense way, and many will be a part of many home churches/home groups, that will be very Apostolic and Prophetic in nature. Much of the prayer gatherings will come from these, and I see a great wave of the moving of God’s Spirit through these groups. It will be a grass-roots movement of God’s remnant there…”

Would you like to be part of something like this? If so then do follow our lead and just get going – the more vulnerable we feel – probably the more powerfully the Lord can use us. And if, of course, you are intercessors and all this makes your heart soar but you know you are already on course, then please pray for those of us who are starting out!!

GETTING ALIGNED FOR WHAT GOD IS ABOUT TO DO

To finish, in early 2012 the Lord spoke to us about not starting a movement but reconnecting His Family. Just this last week He sovereignly reminded us that now is the time. As I close you might like to know of two, of no doubt many more, events being organised by others who sense the urgency of this hour.

NATIONAL DAY OR PRAYER

One is the national Day of Prayer organised by David Hathaway of World Vision which to be held on 8th September in Westminster Central Hall.

CALL THE NATION TO PRAYER – AS ONE

The other is what looks like a smaller endeavour yet I feel has national importance too. On 29th September, Call the Nation to Prayer is organising, two linked gatherings, ‘As One’. First, at the old Coventry Cathedral ruins and later in the nearby village of Meriden, traditionally the centre of England. ‘As One’, is about unity and reconciliation, prayer and declaration to call forth the release of revival prophecy upon the nation.

Remarkably the date is on the same weekend as a small gathering at our home on Sunday 30th September.

A RALLYING CRY!

This letter is meant to be a rallying cry. We believe we see the beginnings of the Holy Spirit moving in our land once more. How thrilling to be part of it. Let’s not look down and be overwhelmed by what we see. Let us look up and get His perspective once more and know that He has a good plan and that we can be part of it.

Much love dear friends

Ginny and Hugh

PS: see this blog’s subsequent posts for responses….(next)

Richard’s Note – A Repentance Issue: this weekend sees yet another example of the End-times (#15 of About Signs) as the spirit of Herod influences the church (see this post) – read Revd Gavin Ashenden on Ely Cathedral and the Great Apostasynote some images are extremely distasteful but convey the gross unrighteousness of such parades!

Declarations over all involved in British politics

We join and stand with Suzanne Ferrett at Passion For The Nation in making these declarations which she published yesterday and today:

It is unusual for me to put out a declaration on a Sunday, and I am aware that there will be many differing views over the current proposed Brexit Bill. However, I felt a strong warning from God, that we need to pray and declare during this weekend, as well as Parliament next week, that God’s purposes are fulfilled.

First Declaration

“Ask of me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance”  Psalm 2: 8

Lord, we thank You for our Godly heritage and declare it will be recovered, restored and connected to Your future purpose for this nation in Jesus’ Name, and that this nation will step into God-given identity.

We acknowledge You as the Alpha and Omega, the One who is sovereign and rules in love and truth over the nations, that Your ways are higher than our ways, and Your thoughts higher than our thoughts.

We thank You for all those You have positioned 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 declare this is the day for Your Kingdom to be manifest, not only in outcomes but also in heart and processes. We declare the Cabinet, Government and Opposition parties will work shoulder to shoulder as Kingdom vision rises above party allegiance and personal preference.

We speak alignment with Your will and Your desire over every conversation taking place (this weekend) within constituency associations, between MPs and over the choices and decisions of those who have recently resigned, that an atmosphere of peace, hope and truth will reign over our land, cancelling every plan of the enemy to bring deception or manipulation or fear – in Jesus’ Name.

Second Declaration

As I stated yesterday, I felt a strong warning from God, that we need to be both praying and declaring over Parliament this week. Thank you to all those who are standing in that place at this time. Please do continue to use yesterday’s declaration.

“The Voice of the Lord echoes through the skies and seas. The Glory – God reigns as He thunders in the clouds. So powerful is His voice, so brilliant and bright, how majestic as He thunders over the great waters (sea of humanity)” Psalm 29:3-4 (Passion Translation)

We declare God is the King of Kings and the Lord of Glory, that He rules over the nations in love and we praise Him for the power of His word released into our world.

Lord, we declare Your people will stand in the full assurance that Your love, Your word and Your covenant with us will never fail, and in the flow of Your purposes for our nation at this time. We decree a new level of love and commitment to the fabric of the land will be released from Heaven, touching hearts, changing priorities and shifting values.

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 declare the Cabinet, Government and Opposition parties, will work shoulder to shoulder, as Kingdom vision 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.

Now, in the Name of Jesus we decree, the boundaries, borders and sovereignty of our nation; judicial, legislative, physical, spiritual, political and economic, will be marked out according to our Kingdom destiny and purpose. That which You would disconnect will be disconnected, and that which You would connect will be connected.

AMEN
