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.
