The primacy of Evangelism, the shiftiness of Jung and disappearance of freedom of speech — Gavin Ashenden

Am very pleased to learn of Revd Gavin’s early liking of Carl Jung and stark warning about consequential darkness for those who follow his path, for that too is my story but which began a decade earlier than his journey.  I was intrigued that his auto-biography told of a ‘revelatory’ dream that started Jung’s delving into psychic realms because it falsely pointed to God loathing the traditional Church. What’s more, it’s thus not surprising Jung soon acquired a spiritual guide, or ‘mentor’!  [My personal account at I’m Free! tells of these dangers and how only the Lord Jesus could rescue me and transfer me from the devil’s domain into His Kingdom – Colossians 1:13.]

Only 5 per cent of UK population love the Bible. We need to get serious about evangelism. 11th November 2019 Following the news that just 5 per cent of the population are ‘Bible-loving’, Bible Society has created seven other spiritual types (such as ‘Bible Nostalgic’ and ‘Bible Indifferent’) to indicate various attitudes to scripture that…

“Out of the mouths of babes” – Stephen Powell on rapper Kanye West’s example to preachers

Again, what ‘coincidental’ timing! Just after posting the previous I noticed a new entry on Prophetic Releasers community group sharing this by Stephen Powell:

FROM THE MOUTHS OF BABES: KANYE’S SURPRISING EXAMPLE TO PREACHERS IN THE WEST

(Matt.21:12-17)
12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ”
14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant
16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have perfected praise’?”
17 Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there. Continue reading

3 prophecies in last week September for the UK, nations and USA – GPS #38.3: Leisa Ebere, white stallion & orchestra

Leisa writes, ‘The Lord woke me up at 4:00 am this morning, 29/09/19, and gave me this powerful message for America; as I conversed with Him. And my heart cried out for the land I was born in, though I have lived in the UK for more than 18 years. God let your mercy pour out upon America., Amen.

THE WHITE STALLION AND ORCHESTRA PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere 29th September 2019

I received a vision from the Lord concerning America and I saw a horse, a beautiful white stallion, who had gone lame because the rider had carelessly ridden the horse hard over rocky mountains and muddy valleys and harsh deserts; and had not taken care to give its hooves the proper protection they needed.

Then I saw a farrier pounding out metal horseshoes with an anvil and I saw the shoes the horse had been wearing were bent and worn, and I knew the horse had suffered much pain and damage to its hooves and tendons, as a result.  “For My Body have walked in a place of presumption and many of the leaders I have appointed have not sought My advice nor My Presence during their decision making,” said the Lord.

‘But what of President Trump and the Ukrainian dilemma he now finds himself in Lord?’ I asked.

“I appointed him as a maestro in My orchestra,” said the Lord, “but he has left out the wind instruments of My Spirit, and his lack of compassion and carelessness have opened the door for the enemy to come in, despite the magnificent music that has been played for My Kingdom’s advancement, and now the music has stopped and the horse has gone lame.” 

What can be done then Lord? I asked and He answered, “There must be repentance  and a filtering out of pride and hardheartedness; for people are dying in the towns and the cities, as many would rather allow weapons to be taken up, rather than lift their prayers and voices unto me.  My heart is sorrowful,” said the Lord “for a favoured nation has allowed the horse to go lame and now the music has stopped.”

Leisa Ebere: Declaration of Change and Transformation

In her email of last Friday 6th September Leisa writes, “God is doing a new and mighty thing in our mist, and we must ready ourselves for a phenomenal change; which God will cause to happen in order to bring about a mighty harvest across the Earth in this hour.  Please find the Powerful Word the Lord gave me this week concerning this:

DECLARATION OF CHANGE PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 04/09/19

“The diagrams of church are changing to break the pride and traditions of men,” declares the Lord. “My Holy Spirit has been entrapped like a wild beast in many parts of My Body and only allowed out for entertainment or self-proclaimed reasons,” says the Lord, “and I say to you in this hour, I will not be contained. 

“I am in the wind and the desert, in the oceans and in the mountains; and My power shall transform the Earth and cause a new template of gathering to be birthed amongst My People. For I am looking for pioneers,” says the Lord, “those who will go to obscure places and establish My Truth,” says the Lord. “And a springing up of new blooms shall cover the fields as My Harvest takes root, and I declare that an ever-increasing change shall abide across this land and many nations of the Earth. My Staff and Rod are at work,” says the Lord of Hosts, “prepare yourselves for change!”

Bless you,

GPS #37 – Vision of The Shaking and of The Rock

Yet another of God’s ‘Global Prophecy Signals’! 

After having blogged on Monday about the Lord setting up His plumbline in our nation I espied this new item on Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival from Joanna Kinch, who kindly permits my republishing. (Note its ‘coincidental’ publication with my item):

‘Given 09/09/2019 – I saw a picture of two large long cracks in the earth, which is a fault line and this is what Yahweh revealed:

“I am going to send shock-waves through the land. There is a fault line.

“My church will be shocked, her foundations will shake, but that which is built on the Rock will stand. That which is built on My Son and My Words will stand. Everything else will shake, rattle and roll into the pit..”

The  preceding text and pictures instantly took me back to the open vision I had in front of me as worship started at a conference in St Albans in 2004. Most perplexed by its associated words I thought came from the Lord, I referred this to the presiding pastor and his guest speaker, but neither were able to comment. When I shared it the next year with Revd Dr Sharon Stone, she immediately confirmed it as being of the Lord.

To Joanna, however, I commented on PRUKR Facebook, “Seems to tally with the Amos 7:7 word I had on Sunday, published 9.9.19”, to which she replied, “…goes alongside. Get ready. This is serious business.”

“It sure is Joanna and alongside many prophecies over recent years of a great shaking – even the open vision I had 15 years ago of Great Britain on rotten old jute sacking and the Lord whispering “The fabric of society is so rotten I can tear it apart”. As I watched it start to rip down the middle, where the ‘backbone’ of the Pennines is, I saw a huge, divine rock slowly emerge.”

Therefore, my readers you may well wish to again weigh and test prophetic words…

GPS #36.6: Day for Prayer for Britain – God’s scarifying the church and nation

Whilst publishing the latest addition to this series (#36.5) I was amazed to receive yet another ‘signal’, this time from Paul Clift whose climactic key to his vision of Brexit-EU spiritual tug-of-war, which confirmed a vision Veronika West had earlier, was recently echoed by the Press. Moreover, it’s sequencing is the Lord’s timing, as noted below.

Again, the reference to Godly oversight in prophecy is noteworthy, as Paul writes,

‘I am very surprised to be sending you another word for your consideration. I do not have a calling to the office of a prophet, but God can use any of us at anytime to do things we do not expect to do. We just have to be open to Him.  Our church, Kings Church Halifax, had a prayer meeting last Saturday morning in parallel with Prayer for the Nation organised by David Hathaway. One week earlier as I was in my garden, the Holy Spirit spoke to me as I was scarifying my large lawn. He said it was for the prayer meeting last Saturday.

‘I read the prophecy on Saturday morning. At the Senior Leaders Team (SLT) meeting we had on Monday morning the prophecy was discussed…Tonight is the first ‘church at prayer’ mid-week session in the series…The SLT have asked me to read the prophecy again tonight so that as a church we can pray into it’

With the prophecy in blue font, the paper Paul encloses reads: 

Received on Saturday 24th August 2019 While Scarifying My Lawn

‘The Holy Spirit started talking to me about scarifying. The lawn looks fine, but very slowly over time debris builds. This is usually from mowing the lawn because not all the lawn cuttings are caught by the box on the mower. Also, in some regions, such as where we live, the soil is acidic and this encourages the growth of moss. After applying moss-killer the lawn needs to be scarified to remove all debris. Holes need to be punched in the lawn through a process called tining so that air, water and fertiliser can penetrate deep into the lawn to revitalise it. This will promote strong growth especially in the roots. Over a period of time the lawn will become very healthy.

‘Immediately after scarification the lawn looks terrible, especially if a lot of debris and moss has had to be removed. The amount of debris removed from my lawn on that Saturday was over 2 full compost bins. The lawn looked really brown, but I knew from past experience that in a few weeks time the lawn would look really good and would be strong and healthy.

“At this time I am scarifying the church and this nation. There is much that is dead within the church and it is strangling new growth, in some cases suffocating any life that exists within itself. The same is true in the lives of many Christians because debris has been allowed to build, so growth is stunted and for some the life has gone.

“You are to be in the world but not of the world. You have allowed the ideas and thinking of the world to influence and infiltrate you rather than you influencing and infiltrating the world. My word to you is to come out from among them and be separate. This is a time to let my Holy Spirit get deep down into your spirit, soul and mind so you can be cleansed. It is a time to repent and respond. If you confess your sin He is faithful and just to forgive your sin and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

“I am also scarifying the House of Commons, the House of Lords, the Civil Service, the Royal Family, the Police Force and Big Business. I will bring to light that which appears to be buried. However, nothing and no-one will evade me,” says The Lord. “I have called this nation to come out from among them and be separate. The seemingly green and pleasant lawn does not look very appealing after scarification, but it is a necessary process to prepare this nation for what needs to be done. Church, will you rise up and partner with me in this time to fulfill the destiny of this nation or will you let this opportunity slip through your hands?

“It takes 2 or 3 months for the scarified lawn to start to recover. It is not a pleasant sight during this time. But if the lawn is tined and fed then the signs of growth and recovery start to take place. Just as it is with the lawn, so it will be with this nation. The next 2 to 3 months will not be a pleasant sight but then small signs of recovery will start to take place. It will take 2 to 3 years for this nation to fully recover, but it will go on from strength to strength.”

Note: A normal solar year is 365 days, but a leap year is 366 – as with 2020. Now look at the sequential number in the above title of this blog’s posting!  (‘GPS’ sequencing began in December 2016.) Therefore, isn’t this another part of the Lord’s invisible jigsaw puzzle?

Leisa Ebere: Urgent prophetic word for churches and government of the UK

At the top of this morning’s deep email in-tray is this from Leisa Ebere:

“Dear Richard, The Lord has a lot to say in regards to what is happening within His Body in this hour; and upon the Earth, and is speaking to me daily about His Will. In fact, He gave me this vision and message last night and I felt a great urgency to get this out to God’s People:”

SONS OF ISSACHAR PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 26 June 2019

I saw many thousands of Lambs being driven to the slaughterhouse; but then the Lord Jesus appeared with a staff and said:

“Wait, I will not allow the defiling of My Sheep any longer, and I am now closing down the abattoirs. For career shepherds with wrong motives and rigid hearts shall no longer be allowed a voice and no longer shall they be allowed to drive My Sheep to scorched and forsaken places. For I am raising up Lions to guard My Sheep, who shall extend sharpened claws and protest with roaring, thunderous voices born of My Spirit, and I say to you, that a changing world shall be the inevitable result.

“Watch My People rise,” saith the Lord, “for even offices of government shall feel the brightness of My Rising and a new man shall be placed in Leadership in the UK, an unexpected man,” says the Lord, “for I shall have My Way.

“Listen, can you hear the hands of time turning?” says the Lord, ‘I declare to you that time shall no longer race ahead without My intervention. For I shall put together the broken pieces of the alabaster jar and anoint My People to be as Sons of Issachar, proclaiming My Will and Glory in the days ahead,” says the Lord of Hosts.

Visions of England ablaze – and a holy whirlwind (GPS #34.2)

aurora-uk_2192580k_Image credit Telegraph

May I offer the following visions for your weighing with the Lord. Readers may recall previous posts on dreams and visions (eg. on Big Ben) received by Tony Puccio, a resident of Tucson, Arizona, on what he believes the Lord is about to do in England. Here’s the two latest:

1. ENGLAND ABLAZE, ANOTHER VISION (19th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I saw the following vision.

‘Imagine, if you will, the Olympic runner who runs with the torch and at the end of his/her run lights the flame for the beginning of the games.

‘With that said I saw England and it was dark. Then I saw what seemed to be Olympic runners seemingly descending from the sky each holding a torch. Again remember the ultimate purpose of the runner was to light the fire signaling the beginning of the Olympic games. However, in the Olympics only one lights a fire. In the vision, as I stated above, was dark but there were cauldrons, many of them. Each individual carrying a torch would use that torch to light the cauldron and that part of England would be lit. This was repeated by the other runners until all of England was ablaze.’

NB: This timing is interesting because it was 7 years ago when the Olympic Torch was carried throughout Great Britain & Northern Ireland for 70 days ahead of the Olympic Games of 2012.  In order to cleanse its pagan influence, it was preceded by an open-top bus on which praise and worship was sung, in which we participated as told here. Many readers may recall the two visions of fires Jean Darnall experienced in 1967 of groups of believers across Britain being struck by lightning bolts. Tony confirms the vision specifically relates to England alone in the UK. This is especially encouraging in view of what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2013 of its need to get in sync with the Lord’s purposes.

2. ENGLAND’S CHURCHES (20th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I once again was shown England. This time however, I saw what we would call in the States a tornado. This was a whirlwind that had both direction and purpose. I watched as the whirlwind would pass by a church and the church literally would be sucked into the whirlwind leaving the foundation exposed. This was repeated many times. This to me is reminiscent of Ezekiel prophesying in chapter 13 about the Lord tearing down the wall and exposing its foundation.’

Again, ‘coincidental’ timing is interesting in view of a posting dated 18th June in a Facebook Group and which I hope to be able to republish. 

Should the Church be actively engaged in politics? South Africa gives a lead

In view of the on-going political upheaval here, Roger Jervois, who’s been keeping us updated on the political Ulster-Eire front, offers a Southern African perspective based upon his personal experience, on the value of the Church getting directly involved in politics.  It is particularly a-propos with my increasing political coverage, albeit from a prophetical stance. Roger writes,

‘I was born in then-Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, in 1963. There, the evangelical church was largely silent, with basically only the Catholics resisting the racist Rhodesian government. The evangelical Church largely stayed out of the political realm, to the great cost of the average person in latter decades.

‘After emigrating to South Africa, in 1986 I (reluctantly, to be honest) joined a very controversial church, Rhema Bible Church, Randburg under a fearless pastor Ray Macauley. The political climate was very difficult still, getting steadily worse – the Apartheid government was ruthless in dealing with criticism.

‘God spoke to Ray’s heart about getting involved in politics and changing the course of the nation. God said it was going to be very costly for him and the church in terms of public opinion, a fact which continues today. God sent many great men and women of God to confirm His word, in front of the congregation, which I personally witnessed.

‘As a church, we rallied around our pastor in obedience to the Holy Spirit. Thus we began to pray for the nation diligently, from 1988 onwards. God opened doors, and even the then-Minister of Finance, Barend Du Plessis, a newly born-again Christian of Afrikaans background, came and spoke briefly to the church, to tumultuous applause. It continued, and God led Ray to reach out further, and he did.

‘The result was a gathering in 1990, after months of intercession, of the extreme left-, centre- and right-wings of the Christian Church in SA at a place of great spiritual significance, Rustenburg – the first capital of the Transvaal Republic and bastion of Afrikaanerdom. It was known as the Rustenburg or Bishop’s Conference where the church leaders wept openly for what they had brought into the nation, asking God’s forgiveness. The result was the miracle turnaround in SA, which continues unto today.

‘Last weekend saw the inauguration of a convert of 20 years, from the very same Rhema Bible Church Randburg, take the oath of office as our State President. The Church in SA continues to be prodded by difficulties into praying for and interacting directly with politicians, to our greater benefit.

‘It is highly recommended that Christians engage with their authorities.’

Roger Jervois, 1st June 2019

PS 3rd June – ‘Just see this story, Richard > Thousands raised for petrol attendant hero (reply: Good to learn of a Godly guy helping a gal)

PPS 4th June – ‘Donations to the petrol attendant have now topped R460,000. Original target was R100,000. (His monthly salary would be around R5,000) > News24.com Shell-has-exciting-plans-for-nkosikho-mbele-the-petrol-attendant-who-went-the-extra-mile

‘This says a lot about race relations in SA, the fruit of the revival perhaps.’

Covering crosses, hiding Jesus and the quest for the truth about God — Gavin Ashenden

I’ve had a rather exciting media week. As one of my friends said, “it’s nice to see Gavin in the Sun fully clothed and without a whiff of scandal.” At the weekend the Sunday Times interviewed me for a comment on an unusual situation. A woman vicar was preparing to hide all the Christian symbols in her parish church to make it more comfortable for local Muslim women. I…
