Franklin Graham speaks out against ANOTHER Biden DOJ, FBI persecution — Clever Journeys

They want to stop people like Mark from praying… “It is extremely dangerous for President Biden and the Democratic Party to use the Department of Justice and the FBI to carry out its own progressive agendas,” American evangelist and missionary Franklin stated in a release on Tuesday, “Friday morning, pro-life advocate Mark Houck’s family was terrified when dozens of heavily armed FBI agents in 15 vehicles showed up at 7 AM,” Graham noted. “The seven children were in tears as they witnessed guns pointed at their parents and their father was taken away in handcuffs. All of this because Mark Houck protected his oldest son from a Planned Parenthood volunteer.”…

“One state senator wrote, ‘The continued weaponization of the FBI and persecution by Joe Biden’s DOJ against ordinary Americans is an outrage.’ I agree. Cases like this are about all of us. They could be knocking on any of our doors.”

“Another congressman wrote, ‘The FBI has turned into Biden’s secret police force. Sending a small army of heavily armed agents to raid Mark Houck’s home should frighten EVERY American. The FBI using fear and intimidation tactics to go after conservatives needs to END!!’”

We need to pray for our nation as the radical left is getting its tentacles into the military, the FBI, and much more. Their goal is to one day have total control over all Americans — and our civil liberties would be lost forever.”

In my humble opinion this is yet another pointer to the demise of so-called Democrat party in America, as prophesied. EVERY AMERICAN CHURCH LEADER must speak out to congregations against this plainly fascist regime and remove it whilst still able to.

At midnight Seasons are Shifting more than usual for Autumn Equinox – Christopher Wickland

NB: the ‘coincidental’ numerical values of date and time of this Autumn Equinox in the UK is Friday 23rd September at 02:03 hours and occurs at the same moment worldwide as the sun crosses the celestial equator!

This prophetic message was brought on 31st of July by Christopher Wickland to Living Church Network, Hampshire. His explanation of the tidal flow of time is similar to my showing its mathematical sine wave, as in my blog’s The Nature of Time.

Readers may recall the very powerful prophecy that Christopher was given just before satan almost took his life, as linked at foot of this post. For reference, I’m extracting the prophecy as a prelude to the full long-read, lovingly transcribed by his wife Tracey onto Facebook. I’ve not removed its frequent multi-lines of formatting code but have inserted sub-heads::

“I felt the Spirit say…. (this is predictive and I’ve been used by God to do predictive prophecy before. God used me in 2007 to predict the exact day of the stock market crash 3 months before it happened.). And in this I felt the Spirit (says) that literally on midnight of the first day of autumn of this year the clock will change into the next hour. It’s not going by an Israeli system or an Israeli clock or calendar but by the British clock and the British calendar because God has a plan for Britain that is specific for Britain.
And on that moment and on that hour when we suddenly hit autumn at midnight of that night, the new season has shifted and we now walk in the beginning of that new season….”

King Charles III’s Address – his solemn pledge

NOTE THIS GOOD NEWS – PRAISE YOU LORD!

King Charles proclaims his Christian faith.

My Solemn Pledge:

“The role and the duties of monarchy also remain, as does the Sovereign’s particular relationship and responsibility towards the Church of England – the Church in which my own faith is so deeply rooted.

“In that faith, and the values it inspires, I have been brought up to cherish a sense of duty to others, and to hold in the greatest respect the precious traditions, freedoms and responsibilities of our unique history and our system of parliamentary government.

“As the Queen herself did with such unswerving devotion, I too now solemnly pledge myself, throughout the remaining time God grants me, to uphold the constitutional principles at the heart of our nation.

“And wherever you may live in the United Kingdom, or in the realms and territories across the world, and whatever may be your background or beliefs, I shall endeavour to serve you with loyalty, respect and love, as I have throughout my life…”

Extract taken from transcript provided by Sky News from their video of the Address, as shown at

https://news.sky.com/story/king-charles-iiis-first-address-to-the-nation-the-full-transcript-12693814

We pray that, as for his mother the Queen, King Charles will be anointed with holy oil during his coronation and that Holy Spirit bring him into full true repentance and enable the new king to be a real disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ and leave behind all activities and schemes contrary to the Kingdom of God. That is, a full renunciation of the works of satan.

 

Changes are coming to Church – Chris G Bennett

My friend in Rotherham Chris G Bennett published this on Tuesday on Facebook and in His Kingdom Prophecy:

THERE ARE CHANGES COMING

I’ve said this before, but The LORD is saying, “Tell them again and again and don’t stop, for My People need to hear it again and again before they’ll truly believe it!”

There are changes coming! Changes in all of our lives that many thought impossible. I see Churches that previously rejected any move of The Holy Spirit as ‘demonic,’ or ‘no longer functioning,’ having open heaven meetings with all the gifts flowing freely.

I see men and women, who have previously scorned prophecy, standing amazed as words of knowledge are spoken over them followed by Words of Prophecy.

I see whole congregations dancing, who would have barely moved before.

I see children having revival in their Church, and taking it into the ‘adult’ body.

I see Deliverance in Churches, where people have been shunned for speaking such ‘heresy’.

“I have been equipping the Body of Christ for the approaching season,” says The LORD.

“The time has come for My People to start walking the walk, as well as they have previously talked the talk!

I AM bringing such a move to The Church, as will cause it to be more like the first Church — for that was My original design.”

“No longer will I tolerate Church Businesses,” says The LORD. “My Church, My true Church, will become The Church I designed My Bride to be.

She will have compassion, hospitality, generosity, and love for all people as her banners. Her people will not go without, neither shall those in her ‘parish boundaries’, or sphere of influence.”

I also saw, as this Church begins to emerge, great strife from within, as people refuse to have their personal status-quo changed.

Some people left this new Church for the old one — in fact, I see one third of the Church leaving, but I also see that which remains increasing by more than 50%, as other people are attracted to this ‘new Church’.

Sadly, I see the Church persecuting the Church, with denominations expelling those who ‘dare to embrace this new nonsense’ — for that is how they will see this new move — a loss of power and control, so they will persecute those who ‘rebel’.

“I have birthed a new Church,” says The LORD, “a Remnant Church, that reflects My Love for people more than it reflects its love for the world.

I AM preparing My Bride to be The Church I designed her to be. All, all, all the Gifts of My Spirit will be manifest in her, as she carries the Revival I AM bringing to the world.

And although much of the world, and much of the old Church will reject her and Me, even so, much of the world will welcome her and embrace Me!” says The LORD Almighty.

Death in the House of the Lord — Tony Puccio

On July 7 I had what I will call a night vision. The vision has to do with Ananias and Sapphira type Christians.

An excellent follow-on and confirmation of Veronika West seeing The Rider on Red Horse, this from one of my long-standing readers over in Arizona points me back to about 14 years ago when I needed to check what that parable actually says.  Upon opening my Bible and even before I started looking for  Matt 13:36 I heard the Lord’s promise “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – hence my beginning to write and 8 years later exposures of evil began to manifest frequently, like cockroaches creeping out of dark holes. (As told in The End-game Is Now In Play). Thank you Tony and Tim.

BRING IT ON LORD, and may YOUR NAME ALONE be praised

 

Linda Bennett comments on Facebook ‘The Church of England just grows more apostate every day. For 100’s of years they wouldn’t ordain women because they were…women. NOW they’re saying they have no definition of what a woman is! Goodness me. They need Jesus.’  
To which I remark, ‘Such apostasy is satanic strategy and, in failing to stand on what Jesus said about why there’s two sexes, these deluded folk won’t get through the narrow gate!’

Rider on the Red Horse: The LORD’s Glory is coming, do NOT touch – Veronika West

This posted by Veronika yesterday reminds me of when Nina was visibly struck by The Holy Spirit at April’s inaugural meeting in our area for New Carmel Prophets. Trembling as she stood waiting on the Lord, Nina needed to grab the back of a chair as He spoke through her:

“I’M HAVING MY WAY LIKE I’VE NEVER HAD IT BEFORE – REGARDLESS OF YOU ALL!”  

Her personal reaction was to say, “In other words, God’s now in charge!”

Here with illustration of unknown source on her Facebook entry and her message from His Kingdom Prophecy is, in my humble opinion, the Lord’s warning to the Church:

THE RIDER ON THE RED HORSE

 ”Watch! For My Glory is on the move, and those who dare to take hold of it shall surely die!”

Oh friends, let me share what I heard early hours of Monday morning, that put The Fear of God into every fiber of my being.

And when I heard these Words, and then I saw it unfolding, I was compelled to cry, “Mercy! Mercy! Mercy!”

So, I was suddenly awoken to these Words, ”Listen! For My Desires will no longer be ignored, for that which I have called Holy is Holy, and to be Revered!

Watch! For My Glory is on the move, and those who dare to take hold of it, shall surely die!”

Friends, as I heard those Words, I have never felt the seriousness of God’s Heart like it before.

No sooner had those Words penetrated my heart, I saw an Archangel of The LORD dressed in what looked like a shimmering Scarlet Robe, with a large Silver Sword in his right hand, and the Archangel was riding upon a Red Horse, and he was being released into The Nations of the earth.

Now please understand that I was not shown this to be the rider on the Red Horse in The Book of Revelation — but it could have been.

[Veronika’s Facebook reads: ‘(now please understand that I was not shown this to be the Rider on the Red horse in the Book of Revelation,..the prophetic timeline of this Rider being released into the earth is not yet)…however,..I believe it could have been symbolic of what is now beginning to take place in the earth on a greater scale,.. ”Wars…Rumours of Wars,..An acceleration in Murders and Killings,…and many will say “Peace, Peace but sudden destruction comes”…!!’]

All I can share from what I saw, is that a mighty Archangel of The LORD, dressed in shimmering Scarlet Robes, riding upon a Red Horse, was being released into The Nations of the earth.

…THE GLORY OF GOD IS NOW ON THE MOVE AND THOSE THAT VIOLATE HIS WAYS WILL BE SWIFTLY DEALT WITH,..I believe this is NOT just speaking to those that have chosen the side of Wickedness and evil,..but also those in the CHURCH that defied God’s Ways and Rebelled against His Word,……WHAT GOD HAS CALLED HOLY IS HOLY AND MUST BE REVERED,…AND WOE TO THOSE THAT TRY TO TAKE HOLD OF HIS GLORY,..FOR THEY WILL SURELY DIE..!!

As I looked at the Rider, I heard these Words again”Listen! For My Desires will no longer be ignored, for that which I have called Holy is Holy, and to be Revered!

Watch! For My Glory is on the move, and those who dare to take hold of it, shall surely die!”

Blessings to you all.

2019 Prophecy Update: Govt change and rebirth of God’s plans for UK – Christopher Wickland

For those who couldn’t hear the prophecy in the emergency prophecy update the other day…. here is a transcript for you to read…

PROPHECY 2019

This morning in the prayer room, I believe the Holy Spirit told me that we’re now seeing the end of our current democracy and He will shut Parliament down. The arrogance of man has come to its conclusion and the house divided must now collapse. Yet through this season of humbling will rise a new government that will be new AND old. Old in that it retains the respect for law, especially ancient laws set down in Parliament. New in that it reflects the climate in which we find ourselves.

A new season is about to come upon us; all that is man-made, both in the institutions of government and of church will be torn down. All those that turned in to the wind of holiness at this time will surely stand and all those that chose liberalism over the Word of God will surely fall.

A time of humbling will come to our nation but from the humbling, the Phoenix will arise, and the new Jerusalem will rise. A new revival, unlike anything before, will hit our nation. A wave of holiness will sweep this land and churches will change to reflect the new spiritual climate. It will be a golden age for our nation and it will become great once again. Not great because of man, but Great Britain, because What we’re seeing now on our news channels and in our newspapers is an end of an epoch, the end of an era, the end of liberalism as we know it. The wind of change is about to blow over our land, and that wind can be so cold and so bitter, yet it leads to the rebirth of God’s plans and purposes for our nation. God has plans to prosper this nation, not plans to harm it. He will make this nation great again. He will restore a golden age for his church in this land of Great Britain; this green and pleasant land. He will do it once again.

Here’s Christopher’s briefing of last Thursday:

Bridge over The Pond prophecies of Angels, Altars and Fresh Fire in UK & USA – Veronika West and Dutch Sheets (GPS #82)

Bridge over ‘The Pond’

‘…Mobile, Alabama. Being 6 hours ahead of US Central Time we ‘attend’ online, and sometimes the reference in CHP would be the next Sunday but even so, this has happened more times than I can recall.’

Thus, began on 8 January 2014 a new tag for this blog: Bridge_o‘Pond – that is, an imaginary supra-natural bridge linking Britain with Northern America used by Holy Spirit for delivering identical or similar teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the Atlantic on the same, or next, day.  This makes 101st such posting, many of which feature the above illustration by Evgeni Denev, ‘Endless Bridge’ (courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net).

Spiritual showdown, altars being rebuilt and wells reopened across Britain – Veronika West

ALSO, on 15th June Veronika writes…

ANGELS, ALTARS AND FRESH FIRE

So, a friend just sent me this wee video by Brother Dutch Sheets who shares powerfully on Angels, Altars and Fresh Fire.

As I saw the title I felt such a strong witness rise up within me even before I listened. Yesterday morning, I was so heavily impressed upon by The LORD to share again on the Angelic Visitation I had where I was given a mandate by The Messenger of The LORD, to release, “UK: The LORD Calls for the Rebuilding and Restoration of the Altars.

As I shared, in that visitation from The Angel of The LORD, I was shown specific areas, key locations across the Nation(s) where the enemy had a legal right to occupy, because the Altars had been neglected and were broken-down.

But The Spirit of The LORD began to move mightily, and I saw an Apostolic and Prophetic Movement coming together like a Strong Ox and a Powerful Stallion, that were yoked together, and the two went forth into the harvest fields, to Rebuild the broken-down Altars.

Now as the Altars were being restored, so Wells of Revival were uncapped, and Mighty Rivers began flowing, and these waters caused the Giants of Clay to be brought down.

The Waters brought a cleansing upon the land, and then I saw fresh Fire fall upon the Rebuilt and Restored Altars, as the Fire fell the demonic thrones and strongholds were destroyed.

Dutch then shared this powerful and significant word today. I believe God is not only confirming to His Ecclesia His Heart’s desire in this hour, concerning The Great Harvest, but He is giving us a powerful and timely Prophetic Strategy for how we are to move forward.

Take 15 and listen to this powerful word of Confirmation, on Angels, Altars and Fresh Fire and as you listen.

Be open to receive a fresh commissioning to go forth into your Nation and begin to call for the Rebuilding and Restoration of the broken-down Altars.

As we do this in the Power and Authority of God, Satan/ the Giants of Clay, will be stripped of the legal right they have to occupy the land and territory.

The TRUE CHURCH will be either DEAD or ALIVE! — Wanda Alger

Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: courtesy http://www.propheticartists.com

In 2015 I had a prophetic dream where I saw three huge eagles emerge from the Mountain of the Lord. I knew they represented the Three in One – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They had been summoned through prayer as the saints prayed for transforming revival. As they drew closer and closer, the fear of the Lord was felt in their weighty message to the Church – “We come together, or not at all.”  THE TRUE CHURCH WILL BE EITHER DEAD or ALIVE! —

After my recent personal meditations, and with the above picture hanging in our lounge, Wanda’s dream and commentary resonates deeply within me, especially… Continue reading

A post-Resurrection miracle as a ‘mystery’ now revealed – part 2

[First published 2018]

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

Definition: ‘Mystery’, Greek musterion (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’ [New Spirit-Filled Study Bible]
Prophecy: “2018: I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly My Numbers…” (delivered by Leisa Ebere, read in full here).

The above, ancient meaning of ‘mystery’ is rarely understood and appreciated, even by those solidly grounded in scripture. As told in my testimony, my pre-Christian life got immersed in that esoteric knowledge, and so I’m experienced in this matter and can attest that the difference between that discipline and holy revelations from the Almighty is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

MATHEMATICIANS’ MYSTERIES

Roger Penrose, “The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe”, Knopf (2005)

Therefore, the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain is comparatively trite!

Even the eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality when using this term, as quoted and discussed in RTU’s Three Worlds, Three Mysteries.

According to its author Joseph, Penrose posits the existence of three “realms” existing around us and “which brings three mysteries” that raise interesting questions on how the world should be viewed. These realms are the physical, mental and Platonic mathematical worlds.

Of course, such hypothetical mysteries cannot equal the much deeper ‘mystery’ of revelatory scripture! Yet in positing that mathematical entities don’t belong in space or time and are eternal and unchanging, Penrose is approaching our understanding of the mathematical aspects of the Bible. His recent thoughts upon consciousness originating at a quantum level may approach ideas I’ve broached in the convergence of science and scripture.

A post-Resurrection miracle as a ‘mystery’ now revealed – part 1

[First published 2018]

Not long after Father God brought Jesus the Messiah back from the dead by His Spirit, the One who’s the radiance of His glory went once again in search of His ex-fisherman friends. Of the two sets of brothers who’d been partners in the fishing trade on the Sea of Galilee before deserting their nets to follow a peripatetic teacher, their boss had an exceptionally severe crisis of self-confidence.

GONE FISHING!

So this ‘son of Jonah’, named Simon, decided to return to the simple life of sitting in a boat with buddies and dragging a net in the hope of getting a catch – but it proved to be an exercise in futility!

A few years earlier on that inland sea, the four fishing partners encountered and had been ‘called’ by The One to follow Him. Jesus amazed the crowds there with His teaching and had asked Simon if He could address them from his moored boat. Jesus knew the men had worked hard all night without having caught anything because, when He’d finished speaking, He told Simon to sail into deep water and lower his nets despite the fruitless night – Simon was overwhelmed by the result!  They’d got such a large number of fish that another boat was called for – then both began to sink with their massive weight!!

So Simon changed his tune. Upon hearing Jesus’ instruction he’d objected because of the poor night, yet respectfully referred to Him as “Master” – but in amazement at the fresh catch breaking nets and sinking boats, Simon addressed Him with the superior term of “Lord”; thus suggesting he was beginning to understand the status of this astonishing teacher. In the account by one of those partners, John, they’d previously met Jesus immediately after His baptism in the river Jordan and Andrew had brought his brother Simon to see Jesus, who then spoke of his identity and implicit destiny, “You are Simon son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas,” (which is translated ‘A Stone’, Petros/Peter: John 1:42).

DSCF3120

After that huge catch of unspecified quantity, Jesus called Simon into his destiny: “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men!”  That is, a fisher of men. When they’d landed their boats the four foresook all and followed Him (Luke 5:10-11). Continue reading

Easter week and the story of two disciples who failed — John Barber

Easter week and the story of two disciples who failed Most years, since I began blogging eight years ago, I have posted an Easter meditation into my blog. I am mindful that some good Christian folk don’t celebrate Easter for good reasons and, while I get Jesus’ life, death and resurrection should be celebrated the whole year round, I have come to value the opportunity to dig deep, at this time, concerning the events of Holy Week. This is my 2022 offering:[…continued at…]

‘Shockwave exposure’ – Archbishop and columnist cite ‘Deep-State’ activists’ own evidence!

Further to the most surprising word dear Veronika West brought last night, and which I’m so pleased strongly reinforces my musing upon and monitoring of exposure of rot and corruption within politics, let me draw attention to the Lord’s first sentences:

“WATCH!…FOR A DOMINO EFFECT WILL CAUSE GIANTS TO FALL AND KINGS TO RISE IN THE SEASONS AHEAD,…SEE!..FOR I WILL BRING FORTH DIVINE SET-UPS THAT WILL UPROOT AND TEAR DOWN THE DEMONIC PLANS OF THE ENEMY THAT SEEK TO DESTROY THE COMING GREAT HARVEST,…LOOK!..FOR WHAT WILL BE REVEALED AND EXPOSED IN THE DAYS AHEAD WILL SEND SHOCKWAVES ACROSS THE NATIONS,…YES!!..SHOCKWAVES THAT WILL BRING A RE-ALIGNMENT AND A RE-ORDERING TO EVEN THE BOUNDARY LINES OF NATIONS,…”

Perhaps the following items fit in with this exceptional promise of action.

This brave Catholic Archbishop, the Pope’s former Apostolic Nuncio to the USA, who’s featured several times on this blog, brings a superlative response to critics using many links to their material, thus demonstrating their ‘Great Reset’ aka, New World Order, aka Deep-State real objectives (“extraordinary uncompromising message,” Chris Moyler):

2nd anniversary of the Lord’s answer on coronavirus, with many validations

Awakening soon after dawn two years ago today, 24th March 2020, I recalled having put this question to the Lord before falling asleep: “Is the Covid pandemic from You?”

So, after my morning greeting I asked and got a quick reply, “No, it is man-made!!” 

A few days earlier I’d asked the online community Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival about the global outbreak of coronavirus. It generated a good debate in parallel with my own dealing with true and false prophets, thoughts over whether the situation is of the Lord, how it relates to scripture and to End-times events, and even whether it may be a weapon of biological warfare!!

Mulling all those matters over in my mind I went to sleep imagining myself at my desk with a several piles of papers, each symbolical of the various options. So I asked the Lord to let me know the correct explanation. And now we know – AND many top-level validations were to follow. For the full account read…

Covid-19 Bio-weapon

I first shared that revelatory night in Another prophecy of 2019 revisited re: coronavirus — the Lord reveals its origin.

ALSO – NEW CHURCH’s 2nd BIRTHDAY

Moreover, I did not realise that previous day, 23rd March 2020, had seen the launch of Catch The Fire Farnborough which also meets mid-week via zoom. It was started by our dear friends Christopher and Rachel Bird after hearing the Lord tell them to watch how he builds a church! It has since grown 10-fold and all attendees are very blessed. What is unique is that Jesus has gathered many believers who are blessed with moving in Holy Spirit’s prophetic gifting!!

Also, this prophecy has thus well and truly come to pass > Birth of ‘New Wineskin’ church confirmed by Veronika West prophecy

So, Very Happy Second Birthday Catch The Fire Farnborough!

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 2 – Neil Mackereth

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR?  – Part 2: THE LETTERS

In the Introductory article (Part 1 of this series) I made no mention of the 1st chapter of Revelation. So, for completeness and before proceeding further, I attach (at annex A below) a review of the 1st chapter, as a necessary lead-in to the examination of the letters in Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation.

The letters to the 7 churches contain comments that can only be understood by referring to the prophetic chapters that follow them. My assessment will seek to link the most significant observations in each letter to the relevant clarification / expansion in the chapters that follow.

But first, some observations on the structure and common factors. They all start with an address to the angel of the particular church, followed by a different characteristic of Jesus for each. Five churches are complimented; two are not: Sardis and Laodicea. Five churches are reprimanded; two are not: Smyrna and Philadelphia. All are given advice, and all are encouraged to have an ear to “hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (note that we should listen to what is said to all the churches). Each church is told what “He who overcomes” will receive.

What do the letters promise “to him who overcomes”?

The overcomers of the Church of Ephesus are assured that they will eat from “the tree of life”. The clarification: “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.” (Rev 22:14). The overcomers of the martyr Church of Smyrna are promised the crown of life and that they “will not be hurt at all by the second death.”

What is the second death, and who will suffer it? The prophecy explains: “the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (Rev 21:8). “Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.” (Rev 20:14).

The Church of Pergamum overcomers are promised hidden manna and a white stone with a new name written on it. There are no direct references in the subsequent chapters; however, hidden manna may well refer to “the bread of life”; “This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” (John 6:35 & 50-51). The “white stone with a new name …” has been the subject of much speculation. There are references to a new name: “ … you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow” and “… to His servants He will give another name”  (Is 62:2 & Is 65:15) but the full meaning of the white stone reference has yet to be revealed.

To the Church of Thyatira: “to him who overcomes, and does My will to the end, I will give authority over the nations – He will rule them with an iron sceptre; he will dash them to pieces like pottery …. … I will also give him the morning star.” In the subsequent prophetic chapters, the shaking of the nations is portrayed. A woman clothed with the sun, and crowned with twelve stars gives birth to a son who will rule all nations with an iron sceptre (see Rev 12). The morning star is Jesus (Rev 22:16), who will “rises in your hearts” (2 Pe 1:19).

The Church of Sardis, which had a reputation for being alive but was dead, is told to wake up and strengthen what remains. There are no good comments; even so, a few overcomers will be dressed in white and will not have their names erased from the book of life. Later, at Rev 20, we see the book of life opened and at Rev 21, that only those named in the “Lamb’s book of life” will be able to enter the New Jerusalem.

The Church of Philadelphia, receives the encouraging promise that the overcomes will be made pillars in the temple of my God; and “I will write on him the name of my God, .… and I will also write on him my new name.” At the start of Rev 14 we read: “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads” (see also Rev 22:4). Two other encouraging comments are: “I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut” and “I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth”. I have often heard the former used in prophetic words given to individuals, and the latter is sometimes used in support of the pre-tribulation rapture argument.

Lastly, the lukewarm Church of Laodicea, which boasts about its material wealth while not realising that in God’s eyes it is wretched and miserable and needs to repent. Even so, Jesus shows His long-suffering love: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock,” and to those who overcome: “I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.”

In Part 3, we will look at significant aspects in the chapters that follow the letters, some of which we have commented on above.

Need-to-know News – Canada’s Trudeau climbs down

Late last night we Brits were very pleased to learn about this surprising news:

BUT what about making reparations to the many thousands whose bank accounts were broken into and closed down because they’d donated to the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy – it was a government-inspired criminal act deserving very hefty jail terms!

PERHAPS Trudeau realised he was approaching his farewell ‘Ceausecu moment’ – as hinted below: Continue reading

The Great Rethink: back to basics, Bible prophecy – Neil Mackereth – 3,600th post!

We’re blessed to receive news this week from Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS and a regular contributor:

“Dear Richard, I mentioned recently that I felt called to revitalise the huge significance of biblical prophecy, especially as a tool for evangelism. You were kind enough to refer me to some of your earlier material on the subject. Herewith my thoughts!”

THE  GREAT  RETHINK

INTRODUCTION

As some of you will know, I think Biblical prophecy is incredible, mind-blowing and “undersold”! Fulfilled prophecy is confirmation of the absolute authenticity of the Bible; it proves that God is omniscient, omnipotent, infallible, knows the end from the beginning, and has always known all the machinations that will happen in between.

Much of society has consigned the Bible, and church-going, to the mundane, commonplace and dreary: and that is our fault. We Christians urgently need a new approach that catches the imagination of those in desperate need. Troubles are intensifying; people are searching, there has never been a better opportunity.

I feel called to highlight and emphasise the astounding, miraculous and supernatural nature of Biblical prophecy. Prophecy is dispersed (dotted about) throughout the Bible and, therefore, usually not read in a linear and related fashion. For me, listing prophecies in one place brings joy and peace to my heart and mind: it confirms that God is in control.

As ever, I will endeavour to keep what follows as simple as possible. But first …

BACK TO BASICS

The Bible, at its opening, quickly moves from creation to satan’s success in instigating the fall of man. Then follows God’s sovereign selection of Abram (Abraham) and his descendants, to be His chosen people (Israel). Thereafter, we see the story of their triumphs, failures, trials and tribulations; and God’s endeavours to guide them through His elected prophets, culminating in the first advent of Jesus Christ.  The New Testament describes Jesus’ life and role as Redeemer King, His death, resurrection and ascension to heaven.  At the close of the Bible, Jesus returns and satan and His followers are overthrown.

The Book of Revelation is the essential finale of the story: God emphasises its huge importance, giving blessings to readers and hearers (Rev 1:3); He makes clear its prophetic nature, and warns of dire consequences for anyone who changes the text (Rev 20:18-19). No other book in the Bible carries such blessings and warnings.

Revelation is difficult to understand but the truth is, many prophecies are unfathomable until their fulfillment [try reading Isaiah 53 (written circa 750 BC) as if you had no knowledge of Jesus’ life and crucifixion]. In considering Revelation, we need to overcome centuries of “Greek World View” interpretations and analyses that seek to apply logic and to deny or ignore any supernatural implications. God cannot be explained by some logical or common-sense process. We can learn a huge amount by a systematic approach to Bible study, but the mystery remains and there comes a point where only faith, and God-given spiritual discernment, can help us.

I will look at the predictions in Revelation at a later date. In the meantime, here are some examples of prophecies that have been, or are in the process of being, fulfilled:

RELATING TO JESUS’ FIRST ADVENT

Prophecy Old Testament (delivered) New Testament (fulfilled)
Born of a virgin Isaiah 7:14 Matthew 1:22-23
Born in Bethlehem Micah 5:2 Luke 2:4-6
Called out of Egypt Hosea 11:1 Matthew 2:14-15
Taught in parables Psalms 78:1-2 Matthew 13:34-35
Healed the sick Isaiah 29:18-19, 35:4-6, 61:1 Matthew 11:2-6
Entered Jerusalem on a donkey Zechariah 9:9 John 12:12-15
Flogged and abused Isaiah 50:5-6 Mark 14:53-15:20
Hands and feet pierced Psalms 22:16 Mark 15: 20-26
Clothes divided Psalms 22:18 Matthew 27:35
Killed and buried Isaiah 53:8-9 Mark 15:33-47
Rose on the third day Hosea 6:2 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

 RECENTLY FULFILLED (or ongoing)

  • Egyptian will turn against Egyptian (Isaiah 19:2) (“Arab Spring”)
  • Damascus will be in ruins (Isaiah 17:1)
  • Gaza will writhe in agony (Zecharia 9:5)
  • False teachers and prophets will lead people astray (2 Peter 2:1-2)
  • Earthquakes, famines, plague and pestilences will intensify (Luke 21:11)
  • Travel and knowledge will increase greatly (Daniel 12:4)
  • People will prefer fantasy to reality, myth to Christian truths (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
  • There will be wars and rumours of wars (Matthew 24:6)
  • The Gospel will be preached to all nations – (Matthew 24:14) (How will we know?)
  • Things will be as they were in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:36-37)
  • People will be proud, unforgiving, lovers of self, lovers of money and pleasure (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
  • In any communication on end time prophecies the message, and the messenger, will be mocked and ridiculed (2 Peter 3:3-4)
  • Jerusalem will be perceived as a problem by the whole world (Zecharia 12:2-3).
  • Christians will be persecuted and martyred (Matthew 24:9)
  • Many will turn away from the Christian faith (Matthew 24:10)

SPECIFIC TO ISRAEL

  • Because of disobedience, people of Israel were dispersed (Deut 28:64-66)
  • The Jews will return to their biblical homeland (fulfilled in 1948), for example:
  1. God will bring back His exiled people (Amos 9:14-15) (Jer 16:14-15)
  2. The scattered flock will be gathered in (Ezek 34:13, Jer 31:10)
  3. A nation born in a day (labour pains to follow!) (Isaiah 66:7-8)
  4. Forces of hugely superior strength will be defeated (Lev 26:3,7-8)
  5. The formerly desolate land will become fertile and fruitful (Zech 7:14)
  6. These things happen for the sake of God’s Holy Name (Ezek 36:19-24)

Each of the prophecies referred to above could be the basis for a long discourse, and there are many more that could be added.

REVITALISED EVANGELISM

I believe that the next stage of evangelising will involve demonstrating to a sceptical world that fulfilled prophecy confirms the authenticity of the Bible and underlines God’s infallibility and love. He has given us all the information we need!

Jesus gave us pointers for the circumstances that will prevail when He returns, but makes it clear that the specific time of his coming cannot be known. We are well along the time-line of prophetic events. Those signs that await fulfillment could happen very quickly. Reading the Bible, watching what is happening, particularly in Israel and Jerusalem, and seeking to understand the spiritual significance of unusual signs and symbols in the world around us, are all key elements in our being ready for the return of Jesus.

Now is the time for a new approach, a Great Rethink:

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” (Isaiah 6:8)

I am convinced that there is at least one expert marketing strategist out there who is envisioned by the Word of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit and who is ready to step into his or her anointing.

‘God-incidence’ of prayer and prophecy for nations – The Days of Rock & Sand

At 3Counties Vineyard Sunday morning service of agape meal with communion, leaders of activities gave brief announcements for the new year. For new attendees’ benefit our church leader, originally from Belfast, outlined his background in serving the Lord . He closed by introducing the Vineyard movement’s 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting. Although we’re just starting, he’s of the opinion the final day’s prayer topic ‘For God To Speak Into 2022’ is important right at the start of this period.

Day 1 is for ‘Nations’, especially comprising the British Isles and Ireland, and gives several pointers relating to our challenges, hope, discovering God’s love, coming into faith and for our national leaders.

‘Coincidentally’ the next morning I came across this prophetic word from Veronika West, who lives along the coast from Belfast, on all Nations:

THE DAYS AND THE SEASON OF ROCK AND SAND

Early this morning (Monday) as I was speaking with The LORD… suddenly, He spoke these words to me,

“Beloved watch!  For the season ahead will be known as ‘The Days of Rock and Sand’!  Yes!  Rock and Sand!

Watch!  For the tide is turning as the rain of My Spirit shall be poured out upon The Nations, and the floods shall come and the winds shall blow and the house built of Rock shall surely stand firm!

But the House built of Sand shall quickly fall and be seen no more.  For I say to you, the shaking of Nations has only just begun.

For the roots/ foundations shall be tested and the fruits shall be judged, and cursed will be the roots that bear defiled fruits, and blessed will be the roots that bring forth righteous and pure fruits!

Watch!  For I say again, the days ahead will be about Rock and Sand and where you have chosen to make your stand, for the Whirlwind of My Seven Spirits shall blow forth across The Nations, to gather up and to scatter abroad, and the Flood Waters of My Glory shall be poured out and shall cause a Divine Change in the Spiritual Equilibrium!

Yes!  For suddenly a Supernatural Shift shall take place across The Nations as My Resurrection Power blows forth upon the valley of Nations in derision.

Watch!  For I shall render swift judgment upon The Nations that have chosen Sand and I shall pour out Divine Justice upon Nations that have chosen Rock.

Yes!  And it shall be Rock Nations that I take up in My Governing Hand, that shall take down the giants that have sought to occupy the land.

Therefore, Watch and Pray!

As I raise up My Davids from among The Nations, even My Gideons and My Joels shall take their place.

See!  For my Deborahs and Esthers shall emerge, empowered and equipped to subdue and overthrow.

Listen and pay close attention, and become attuned with The Frequency of Heaven in these days!  For there is a sound that is rising from the ground that will shake and shift the kingdom of darkness and cause the enemies of The Living God to flee in seven different directions.

For the sound of marching feet shall fill the spiritual atmosphere, for an Army of Radical Reformers will arise and advance, robed in The Sackcloth of Repentance and wearing The Crown of Righteous Humility and Full Surrender to their King, and they shall Pursue, Overtake and Recover all in The Season of Rock and Sand.”

Friends, let us be sure to build on Rock and not Sand in the season ahead.

Let us not be found standing on the wrong side of God’s Righteous Ruling that is now being rendered.

Let us rightly align, even as Nations are now being aligned and even re-positioned.

Rock shall withstand the greater shakings ahead — while Sand will quickly give way and become the downfall of many!

Blessings to you all.

RB: The above word compares well with – and builds upon Matthew 7 (NKJV):

I Never Knew You

21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Build on the Rock

24 Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, 29 for He taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes.
