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.’

‘The Truth matters’ – LBC radio’s Nick Ferrari asks why it matters that the C of E covered crosses and hid Jesus. When he finds out he graciously apologises. The difference between the Gods of Islam and of Christianity is at stake and is crucial — Gavin Ashenden

I strongly recommend your ‘taking 5’ to listen to this most informative interview:

A reasonable person would think ALL CLERGY should be trained in the fundamentals of their Christian faith and relationship with Jesus Christ, and fully understanding the difference with every other religion!  Or is that far too much to expect??

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.

JESUS POINTS TO MATHS

Continuing from Part 1 on Apostle John’s account of the miraculous provision of 153 large fish and the re-blog of New Zealander Joanne Rolston’s posts on it, we learn that she asked Jesus direct on why such specific details are noted. Let me quote some pertinent parts of her highly personal account:

I asked the Lord about the meaning of the 153 fish in John 21:10, and I was given a maths answer. Amazingly I grasped the explanation. Having to learn statistics in order to get my Diploma of Business helped. I had to overcome a lot to learn the math behind statistics…(including) my loathing for maths. Fortunately, I have a very patient husband who helped me with the mechanics of maths in statistics.

“But I kept complaining to God. “Why do I have to learn this?” I protested, “We’re never going to use it in our business!”

“Make friends with maths” the Lord told me. Not reconcile myself to maths, not become acquainted with maths; He wanted me to believe I could learn maths and take an interest in it! It was a big ask. In a Father’s instruction, He says;

“Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7)

So we read that Joanne progressed and mentions Factorial numbers and Venn diagrams as being the first things she learned in statistics. These were the basis of all the wonderful things she was later shown about that ‘action replay’ fishing trip by seven of Jesus’ disciples.

She succinctly explains the unusual significance of the 153 fish by maths of factorials and square root of the third prime number (3), as well as geometrical constructions and proofs in diagrammatic forms, PLUS their relevance to the triune relationship of God, Christ and mankind.

Now examine these facts more closely and delve deeper into the ‘mysteries of the kingdom’:

That historic catch’s mathematical meaning is a surprising shock to we moderns but, in the immense sweep of history, such intellectual knowledge was a relatively ‘recent’ development to those living in the inter-Testamental times of the Graeco-Roman world. The principal propositions, or theories and proofs, of geometry had been compiled by Euclid of Alexandria about 300 years before Jesus’ life. To give us some perspective, this is the same period since the accession of George I (1714) and the appearance of John and Charles Wesley to lead a major evangelical revival, from which was born the fourth largest church denomination in England, Methodism (in Oxford, 1729).

Fascinating Fact: the first proposition of Euclid’s Elements of Geometry is to construct an equilateral (three sides of equal length) triangle by describing a Vesica Piscis (known as ‘Vessel of Fish’!) with a pair of compasses. It’s done by drawing one circle and then a second one exactly the same size, but with its centre on the circumference of the first.

The common, overlapping area looks like a canoe and the ratio of its length to width is 265:153, which closely approximates the square root of 3 as calculated by Archimedes of Syracuse.

All three symbols, triangle and circles with intersecting segment, feature in the ‘mystery’ of the 153 fish – note the use of equilateral triangle as this will be considered another time:

It’s noteworthy that John closes his Gospel account of Jesus’ main post-Resurrection appearances with this most tantalising morsel:

‘And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.’ (John 20:30)

That statement lodged indelibly within my soul when a teenager and I determined to set on a quest to discover the fullness of Jesus’ work. A lifetime later, I learn that ‘seal’ sets the scene for the last chapter’s account of the amazing fishing expedition. That is, it is a clear signpost of the next and final miracle’s deep significance to the early Church.

UNLOCKING THE SIGN MIRACLES OF JOHN – SIGN 8: 153 FISH

Jonathan R Hill, whose above-titled book explains how ‘pi’, the mathematical ratio of circumference and diameter of every circle is found in Genesis 1:1, and that of ‘e‘ (base of natural logarithmic and base rate of growth in all growing processes), are found in John 1:1, devotes a full chapter to ‘Sign 8’, the miraculous catch of 153 fish.

Consider this summary of his main points on Sign 8:

  • It is the 8th ‘sign’ miracle recorded by John and found in his book only. First and only post-Resurrection sign-miracle and last of the eight, thus reflecting the divinity of Jesus as ‘first and last’ and the ‘alpha and omega’! (I now recall hearing Him tell me during a ministry-team prayer, “I Am Alpha and Omega” – watch for more on this later.)
  • Time and death represented in this succession by number 7 is followed by 8, the number of resurrection (a new beginning, as blogged in January), underscored by 8 resurrections in scripture other than that of Jesus.
  • Jesus’ command to cast nets from the other side of the boat, the right, symbolises and prefigures God visiting the Gentiles and taking a people for His name.
  • The Greek word ‘ekklesia’ translated as ‘church’ means nothing more than ‘called out of’. Thus, the fish being caught out of the sea reflect the characteristic of the Gentile church as those who are ‘called out of’ the world.
  • 153 is of considerable mathematical and typological significance and represents the fullness of the Gentiles.
  • Key composites of 153 are 7 (spiritual perfection), 10 (numerical completeness) and 9 (finality) because (7+10) x 9 = 153 (= 9 x 17).

Jonathan makes many more deep connections between scriptures and Sign 8 and their importance to the Church and the Consummation of the Age. Building upon the 17-rowed triangle of the number 153 displayed in Jo-Blog’s Go Fish, this is how Jonathan describes this mathematical principle (drag to enlarge, noting number 153 forms an equilateral triangle of sides 17 x 17 x 17):

CONCLUSION

From this brief overview of well-researched data we can confidently conclude that the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven include mathematical principles as an important part of its transcendental wisdom. Selah!

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

GPS #32: words and visions on the significance of Notre Dame’s conflagration – and Jerusalem’s!!

A personal thank you to Angus MacKillop for alerting readers of Ignite Ireland Ministries to Newsweek’s report that whilst flames were engulfing Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, there was also a fire in Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque – it cannot be mere coincidence or a ‘God-incidence’, as we’ll learn from the prophetic word of yesterday shown below.

Tom O’Conner writes in yesterday afternoon’s Newsweek, ‘Fire broke out at the revered Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem just as flames ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

‘Footage showing smoke and fire emerging from the roof of a structure known as the Marwani Prayer Room, or Solomon’s Stables, could be seen on social media. The Palestine News Agency, the official outlet of the Palestinian National Authority, cited a guard as saying Monday that “the fire broke out in the guard’s room outside the roof of the Marwani Prayer Room, and the fire brigade of the Islamic Waqf handled the matter successfully…Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, director general of the Jerusalem Waqf and Al-Aqsa Mosque Affairs Department, told Jordan’s Al-Mamlaka TV that the fire broke out in the courtyard and preliminary information suggested that it may have been caused by children tampering in the area.’

Let’s not forget that intriguing ‘coincidence’ of an unusual lightning strike in Mecca on the 14th anniversary of the attack upon New York’s Twin Towers (see Paws-4-Thought: Kingdom-related Events Since Lightning Strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque).

THREE PROPHETIC WORDS ON NOTRE DAME FIRE

That the above buried news of the Al-Aqsa compound fire is not only synchronous but also is part of what God is doing worldwide, will become clear upon reading the first of two words received in this morning’s email, namely:

1. FIRE IN PARIS PROPHECY 

The Lord would say, “The fire of the Paris Cathedral is a signpost of My Spirit and is the beginning of the tearing down of the high places of religion across the nations of the Earth. For surely I am doing a new thing in the midst of you and My Spirit shall burn down the old entrapments and raise up the new places that I have decreed.”  For the Lord says, as is written in Jeremiah 23:29 ‘Is not My Word like fire and like a hammer that breaks a rock into pieces?’

“Watch and Listen for I am causing both heavenly and earthly signs to identify the changes I am making to re-frame the earth so that My righteousness and glory are at the forefront,” says the Lord of Hosts. “Be vigilant Watchman and make My Signs known to My People,”says the Lord.

Leisa Ebere, 15th April 2019

2. “NOTRE DAME IS ON FIRE…! PRAYING FOR PARIS FRANCE…!!

While watching the FLAMES RISE OVER NOTRE DAME the Holy Spirit quickened to me this powerful word I gave for France last year…!

A WORD FOR THE NATION OF FRANCE; “WATCH! FOR THE FIERY PHOENIX IS RISING, RISING, RISING FROM THE ASHES TO NEW LIFE AND NEW BEGINNINGS”

This afternoon while sitting talking with the Lord in my garden suddenly I saw the Nation of France and as I looked at the Nation I saw a FIERY PHOENIX RISING UP FROM THE ASHES, as I looked again at the Nation the Word of the Lord was quickened to me saying, “Then I thought, ‘I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days like the phoenix’. On hearing these words I immediately inquired of the Holy Spirit and I heard Him say,

“DAUGHTER, I HAVE HEARD THE CRIES OF MY PEOPLE AS THEY HAVE WEPT FOR MERCY, MERCY, MERCY OVER THIS NATION, FOR SURELY IT HAS LOOKED LIKE THEY WOULD DIE IN THEIR NEST, BUT WATCH! FOR A MIGHTY WHIRLWIND OF MY SPIRIT NOW BRINGS FORTH RESURRECTION POWER TO THAT WHICH LIES BENEATH THE ASH HEAP, WATCH! FOR THE NATION OF FRANCE SHALL BE LIKE THE FIERY PHOENIX RISING, RISING, RISING FROM THE ASHES OF DESTRUCTION AND DEATH TO THE BEAUTY OF NEW LIFE AND NEW BEGINNINGS. WATCH! AS MY SPIRIT NOW MOVES ACROSS THIS LAND TO RESURRECT AND RESTORE, TO REFORM AND REVIVE, WATCH! AS MY GOVERNING HAND MOVES MIGHTILY IN THE DAYS AHEAD TO MULTIPLY HER DAYS LIKE THAT OF MY SERVANT JOB,” says the Spirit of God.

I DECLARE AND DECREE; THAT THE NATION OF FRANCE SHALL RISE, RISE, RISE LIKE A FIERY PHOENIX FROM THE ASH HEAP OF DESTRUCTION AND DEATH TO THE BEAUTY OF NEW LIFE AND NEW BEGINNINGS.

Note; PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE NATION OF FRANCE IN THIS HOUR. (click to read vision to Pray for France Arising dated 3rd May 2017)

SEE A SECOND WORD GOD GAVE ME JUST A FEW DAYS LATER; (Click to read France! France! France! Pray for France! dated 7th May 2017)

Note; Job, notwithstanding his present despair of it, was favoured and satisfied with, (Psalms 91:16 ) ( Job 42:16 Job 42:17 Job 29:18) . Some versions render it, “as the phoenix”, a bird of that name, spoken of by many writers as a very long lived one; some say it lived five hundred years, others five hundred forty, others six hundred sixty…!

3. BRITISH ISLES/UK and EUROPE: IT’S TIME TO REAP WHAT YOU’VE SOWN

Roger Jervois in South Africa kindly forwarded copy of yesterday’s conversation he had with a sister in UK who moves in the prophetic. They note a specific reference to ‘Fire of God’ in an American’s prophetic word, the title of which I’d noticed a few days ago but for different reasons.

It is published in Elijah List as British Isles/UK and Europe: It’s Time to Reap What You Have Sown, the pertinent part of which reads (emphasis mine)

‘We make room for the Holy Spirit in our local church gatherings. It’s impossible to see culture shift without a local church that maintains an open atmosphere to the supernatural movement of the Spirit. I prophesy, Europe and UK – may the fire of God burn strong in your churches! I even see some of the ancient landmarks of faith, the cathedrals and beautiful sanctuaries of old, coming alive again with the fire of God.’
