Two critical Qs: First, did Putin order nerve agent attacks in the UK? Second, are NATO allies (eg. Baltic States) at risk of Russian attack?

This deliberate act of covert warfare against Britain may bring a couple of blessings in disguise: first, bringing the nation together after the deep divisions caused by the EU-referendum; secondly, the public awakening to the utter unsuitability/incompetence of Jeremy Corbyn in leadership of either his party or the nation!

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog


(Dallas, Texas) — First, a few thoughts on the situation unfolding in the U.K.

  • The poisoning of a Russian father and daughter — opponents of Vladimir Putin — on British soil by a military-grade nerve agent was reprehensible. It must be condemned by every world leader. The number of Putin critics murdered or severely injured in Great Britain is in the double digits and continues to rise. This is absolutely unacceptable and must not go unpunished.
  • I applaud British Prime Minister Theresa May for announcing an immediate series of punitive measures against the Russian government, including the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats suspected of being spies, the largest number of such expulsions in thirty years. 
  • NATO HQ also just issued a statement on these attacks on British soil, which reads in part: “The UK confirmed the use of a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia and…

The spiritual significance globally of Billy Graham’s ‘going home’

Thank you immensely to Suzanne Payne at UK Prophetic Words for this compilation, and to Jenny Knight for drawing my attention to that issued by Veronika West:



Several relevant prophetic words, including from Kim Clement and Veronika West:

Benny Hinn 1989: “The Lord said to me in 89, “When Oral Roberts and Billy Graham go home, it will be the key; it will be the sign of the beginning of the greatest revival on earth.” [Watch short video here.]

Billye Brim 2007 heard the Lord say: “Tell Oral Roberts some can choose the date of their departure as is revealed in the writings of the Apostle Paul. But some cannot; for the dates of their departures are in the sovereign plan of God. Two who cannot choose are Billy Graham and Oral Roberts. Their departures are in the sovereign plan of God and at their departures there will be a major shift in the heavenlies.” [See this link.]

Wanda Forbes 2007: God said to watch his generals. When Oral and Billy went home it would be a sign of a new facet of Gods glory and power. Their mantles – I saw a large shield burst into small ones. God said one would no longer carry the mantle but Gods faithful. God began to pour out small shields on the earth.

Jeff Kingshot 2010: The graduation of Billy Graham will be a sign of a great release of fire worldwide.

Kim Clement 12th Sep 2006:

God says, it shall come to pass, and you know it already that My great generals who have stood the test of time shall decree before they die “it is time for me, it is well with my soul.” Billy Graham, I am calling you to be with Me that the earth may see the Lord in a greater way, for your death will not bring about tears, but your death will bring about the unveiling of the Lord high and lifted up. For your death shall not bring, your death shall not bring the closing of the eyes of a generation, but your death shall bring the raising up of great evangelists of this time, says the Lord of Hosts.

“Billy Graham, it is time, for you have said it yourself, for this day God says, as it comes to pass that you come to Me, as it comes to pass that soon Oral Roberts comes to Me, that I will take these and I will anoint the earth with a gracious, gracious double portion and they, the people shall see the Lord and He will be high and lifted up…”

For I announced in Oregon a few months ago that there will be four great anointings that shall be released: the release of the anointing of Joseph, the release of the anointing of Enoch, the release of the anointing of Daniel and the release of the anointing of Isaiah. Tonight I speak of Isaiah, says the Spirit of the Lord, for you stand in the same place. For a veil has been rent and you can see Me that I am high and lifted up, says the Lord of Hosts. Now I say those words from My father, whom shall I send? Who shall go for us? And I hear the people say, “here am I, Lord, send me. Here am I, Lord, send me. Here am I, send me.” [Read full prophecy here.]

Veronika West 2 Dec 16: Heaven’s Government Being Established on Earth:

Then again I heard His voice, “MY GREAT AND LATE REFORMERS ARE NOW BEING GATHERED TOGETHER IN THIS HOLY AND SACRED PLACE, FOR AS IT IS IN HEAVEN SO SHALL IT BE NOW UPON THE EARTH”, then I looked up and I saw 10 Thrones sitting high upon a marble platform, as I drew a little closer suddenly I saw nine bright and radiant lights appear over the thrones, as I watched closely all nine of the bright lights moved upon the thrones all EXCEPT one which remained empty, now as I looked upon the empty throne it was quickened to me in the Spirit the name ‘BILLY GRAHAM’, then my eyes were drawn back again to the nine bright and radiant lights, and by just looking at them I knew and recognised all who were now sitting upon the thrones. I saw in the Spirit the late and great John Paul Jackson, I saw the late and great Bob Jones, I saw the late and great Miles Monroe, I saw the late and great Kim Clement, I saw the late and great Peter Wagner, I saw the late and great David Wilkerson, I saw the late and great Oral Roberts, I saw the late and great Kathryn Kuhlman and I saw the late and great John Wesley.

Now Again I knew by divine revelation that this Holy and Royal Counsel of God’s Great and late Apostles, Prophets and Evangelists were being gathered together in this most sacred place to bear Witness to HIS MIGHTY GOVERNING Hand moving upon the Nations of Earth. The atmosphere was exhilarating and pregnant with great expectation, I stood trembling but silently watching, listening and waiting and then again I heard these words, FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NOW BEING ESTABLISHED UPON THE EARTH.

The dream/encounter ended!

As I have prayed over this second dream encounter I have been somewhat perplexed by the 9 Great Reformers that I saw and the 10th throne yet to be filled. I have been seeking God for the meaning and significance of these particular saints that are being gathered together as one, prophetically I believe it has something to do with the mantles that they carried, the new Breed of leaders that are now emerging and the legacy they have left behind. Furthermore I felt a great significance to seeing 10 thrones and only 9 being occupied, I HUMBLY submit that when there are 10 thrones occupied that is when we will see a SUDDEN AND MIGHTY MOVE OF GOD COMING UPON THE EARTH like we have NEVER SEEN before. I believe there will be an UNPRECEDENTED OUTPOURING OF GOD’S GLORY UPON THE EARTH AND WE WILL SEE THE GREATEST MANIFESTATION OF SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES BEING BIRTHED IN THE NATIONS.

Veronika West 21 Feb 18:



On hearing of Billy Graham’s passing today it was quickened to me the powerful encounter I had concerning his passing and how it would be a great sign of “Gods Government being established upon the earth.”

FOUR Jesus’ End-Time Signs Seen – Pray for Christian ex-magistrate before Tribunal

‘As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, Peter, James, John and Andrew asked Him privately, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things will be fulfilled?“…Now learn this lesson from the fig-tree. As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening you know that it is near, right at the door!”  (Mark 13:3, 28-29 NIV).

Today, Croydon Employment Tribunal starts hearing the case of Richard Page – a Christian who was removed from being a magistrate after he expressed his belief that children do best with a mother and a father. The case is scheduled to last for five days.

An ‘Action Alert’ has been issued today to Pray for a fair, just outcome for Richard from Christian Concern (click to read full details)

Richard was first challenged by his seniors in late 2014 when, after hearing an adoption case, he could not agree with his fellow magistrates that placing a child into the care of a same-sex couple was ‘in the child’s best interest’. Richard says,

“As a magistrate, I have to act on the evidence before me and quite simply, I believe that there is not sufficient evidence to convince me that placing a child in the care of a same-sex couple can be as holistically beneficial to a child as placing them with a mum and dad as God and nature intended.

“I am surprised that this Lord Chancellor should seemingly pander to the new political orthodoxy when what it amounts to is social experimentation on the lives of the most vulnerable children in our communities. To punish me and to seek to silence me for expressing a dissenting view is deeply worrying. I shall challenge this decision as it is deeply illiberal and intolerant. It is vital the family law courts always have in mind the best interests of the children…”

Richard is supported by the Christian Legal Centre and represented by its Standing Counsel, human rights barrister Paul Diamond. The Centre’s chief executive, Andrea Minichiello Williams, comments:

“The Lord Chancellor has removed Richard from the magistracy for allegedly being ‘prejudiced’ and for speaking out in the media about what has happened to him.

This unmasks the face of the new political orthodoxy; it is unkind. It tries to silence opposing views and if it fails it crushes and punishes the person who holds those views.

“To remove someone like Richard from the bench is modern-day madness. He has a lifetime of public service and expertise in mental health. He is motivated by his Christian faith and a deep compassion for people.”

Bible Update: Ezekiel 38-39 – Iran vs. Israel : USA and Russia?

After the weekend news of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s threat to ‘open the gates of hell’ over the Zionist regime (not the first such threat) and all American bases, we look at the headlines from pre-MSM (mainstream media) DEBKAfile and a few from MSM in Israel as a synopsis of latest events in Israel and in Syria. Links are provided should you wish to read further (MSM ones are slowed by adverts):

NB: Underlined items all now available (added 14 & 15 Feb ) per further Update with explanation of Iran’s deep animosity towards Israel:

Yesterday’s DEBKAfile report Iran’s Saegheh drone in Syria a worry for US as well as Israel gives penetrating insights into this conflict, as hinted in this extract:

‘The infiltrator drone was discovered to have been part of a whole fleet of advanced armed Saegheh UAVs housed at the T-4 base. The second wave of Israeli air strikes against 12 Syrian and Iranian targets decimated this fleet. Most importantly, the drone intrusion and its sequel exposed the incident to have been no one-off,  but part of a calculated Iranian plot against Israel at the highest level, that was coordinated in advance with the Russian air force, which shares the use of T-4, and the Syrian air defense systems, which operate under Russian command. It is equally important to note that Iran brought its Saegheh UAV’s to Syria with Moscow’s consent.
This may be accounted for by the drone’s unique provenance.

‘In a long and arduous process of reverse engineering, Iran’s munitions industry copied some of the components of the CIA’s most secret stealth drone, the RQ-170 Sentinel, after it was intercepted and captured over Iran in December 2011. The American drone, armed and capable of detecting clandestine nuclear tests, is rated the finest UAV of its kind in operation. Tehran claimed it had intercepted the Sentinel’s overflight by taking control of the American surveillance satellite communications which navigated the drone’s course. This was vehemently denied by Washington. At the time, DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources revealed that the those responsible for the feat of bringing the secret American drone down intact were not Iranian but Chinese cyber experts.

‘The Russians were keen on getting a look at the wonders of the American drone, but the Iranians refused to give them access. Eight years later…’ (click to read in full).

The Israeli-Syrian clash and what it likely means, by Mark Davidson

Mark’s opinion here is of interest relating to the prophecies in not only Daniel chapters 7 & 8 but also in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39.


So what happened? According to Israeli authorities an Iranian drone flew into Israeli airspace yesterday. Israel responded with some F-16’s taking out the drone. (By the way, military drones are not the little 4- or 6-propellar toys we see flying around in the local news—they are unmanned aircraft which can be as large as manned fighters themselves.)

An IRGC officer being interviewed while standing next to one of Iran’s purported drones.

An antiaircraft missile launched from Syria downed one of the F-16s while in Israeli airspace. Israel then responded by taking out targets on the ground in Syria they thought were responsible for launching the drone and the missile.

This Reuters article summarizes everything nicely.

Some news sites on the web made it sound like a great battle leading to the start of a new war. I believe this is nonsense. This was Iran and her…

Fulfilled Prophecy #26 – Exposed: ‘coup’ threats against Brexit and against Trump

UTTERLY fantastic ‘coincidence’ with what I’ve prepared for publishing today, as though more pieces of God’s ‘Invisible Jigsaw’!  One warning of a possible coup d’etat, another of international meddling, both exposing corrupt and apparently centrally directed, anti-democratic chicanery on opposite sides of ‘The Pond’.

Daily Telegraph’s investigative journalists are to be warmly congratulated (click to read)

The strap-line and opening paragraph of this exclusive investigation read:

‘Billionaire financier Soros hosts campaign dinner to undermine May and keep Britain in the EU – George Soros, the billionaire known as the man who “broke the Bank of England”, is backing a campaign to overturn Brexit, the Telegraph can disclose.

‘The investor is one of three senior figures linked to the Remain-supporting campaign group Best for Britain who plan to launch a nationwide advertising campaign this month, which they hope will lead to a second referendum to keep Britain in the EU. The campaign is trying to recruit major Tory donors in an attempt to undermine Theresa May.

‘It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election, according to a strategy document leaked from a meeting of the group….’ [NB: ‘premium’ content, but one item/week may be accessed free-of-charge.]

This isn’t entirely new because in Why Leave the EU? Jonathan Ely posted rumours of Soros’ interference in our democratic decision to leave the ‘Tower of Babel/Brussels’. Also, December’s issue of Christian Voice published an in-depth report on Soros’ pan-EU anti-Brexit web by Stephen Green (see Farage Exposes Soros Plotters). AND his dealings were exposed in June 2016 ( Is Brexit an ‘Act of God’? Yes, but it challenges Churches!).


A fortnight ago today I blogged about corruption worse than the Watergate scandal surfacing, as another example of fulfillment of my prophetical musing about the exposure of rotten politics and corruption in the UK, USA – and EU? (Months later examples erupted here and here, then a year later here; others brought prophecies on it, as blogged here and here in November 2016 and here a year later.)

Thank you Jennie C and Lynne H for informing me of news emerging the day before my blog of Franklin Graham’s warning about the ‘Deep State Threat’ – even a ‘coup d’etat’ – against President Trump.

In recent months the so-called “deep state” has been all over the news in America. A WND report of January says, “Loosely defined, it’s the career bureaucrats who wield considerable influence on the policy and practice of the federal government. While the heads of agencies are political appointees changing with each president, “deep state” members, with their own political ideologies and agendas, remain.”

Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Franklin at a dinner held on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and his famous international charity, Samaritan’s Purse.

Also, I recall Franklin having fallen foul of Obama’s policies in his first presidential term and I mentioned a couple of instances in an email of 2010 to friends: the Pentagon had withdrawn their invitation to attend a prayer breakfast and Muslim activists wanted him banned from attending America’s National Prayer Day!!! 

Yet he was one of several pastors who were invited to pray for Donald Trump at his Inauguration!

Fox News’ Franklin Graham Warns of Deep State Coup Against President Trump, is summarised as follows (courtesy Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House of 26 January, Bill’s emphases retained):

‘One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

“I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Franklin Graham said Wednesday (24th) on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.

‘Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

‘The evangelical leader did not name names, but he suggested the mainstream media was complicit in the silent coup. Click here to listen to the shocking interview.

“They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

‘Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

That was a fortnight ago. For an update, with interpretation for we Brits, on the situation let’s check out the lady journalist ‘going wherever the evidence leads’, Melanie Phillips. In last Sunday’s article on the now-famous Nunes Memo her analysis leads her to note and conclude:

‘Bottom line seems to me to be that the FBI and DoJ misled the FISA court by failing to provide it with information that seriously called into question the reliability of the evidence put to it to support the request for a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. That would seem to be, to put it mildly, a serious abuse of legal process which totally undermined the protection afforded to the public against abuse of the FISA surveillance powers designed to guard against terrorist offences

‘We don’t know anything like the full picture on all this and so must be cautious. It may be that further information will emerge which will radically change the story that’s now unfolding. But as things stand, it looks very much as if, under the Obama administration, certain senior figures in the FBI and DoJ corrupted the administration of law enforcement and subverted the US constitution.

‘This is deeply shocking, and Congress must now continue to place more information in the public domain so that we can all finally assess just what took place here and just how deep this most fetid swamp has become.’

It must NOT escape our attention that Soros and Obama are in cahoots as more-or-less leaders of the Organization for Action (OfA) – AND the Telegraph’s journalists point out its violent nature as witnessed in the US and warns of a distinct possibility of similar deliberately organised manifestations happening in Britain!

On the Soros meeting in London, those investigators tell of a leaked strategy document for a campaign to undermine Brexit that reveals,

‘…a series of Momentum-style mass rallies and concerts are planned and the campaign will have a “heavy youth focus”…and reveals a plan to  “pressure” MPs in 100 Leave-supporting constituencies and sets out how organisers have a range of guerrilla marketing tactics” to build momentum.

‘(Soros’) involvement comes more than 25 years after he made over £1 billion betting against the pound shortly before the UK withdrew from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. More recently he has been accused of organising rallies against Donald Trump in the US and interfering in the democracies of several European nations.’ (Emphasis mine)

A year ago the New York Post, as part of the MSM not noted as a Trump supporter, reported on How Obama’s Scheming to Sabotage the Trump Presidency via the OfA.

As there’s no smoke without fire, maybe the Christian journalists who were deeply wary of the person and policies of the past American president, claiming he and Soros may be furthering the Antichrist’s agenda and strategies, could have discerned ‘the devil in the detail’?

UPDATES (20 Feb):

Zecharia 2:8-9 as root of Europe’s migrant crisis and of UK’s ‘Brexit’

For thus said the Lord of Hosts, after [His] glory had sent me [His messenger] to the nations who plundered you – for he who touches you touches the apple or pupil of His eye: (9) “Behold I will swing my hand over them and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me. Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you”, says the Lord. (Zecharia 2:8-9 Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

I humbly submit that the above verses about defending Jerusalem may be relevant to the unending influx of millions of Muslim refugees into Europe, as well as to Britain’s leaving the European Union – even to the EU’s grossly hypocritical failure to apply an international law!

Could this be the real reason behind our getting out of the EU?

Credit: Free_israel_photos_jerusalem_old_city_all


When using the above verses to open the first part of this Zecharia 2 Update (on EU Supports Palestine Against Israel) I was going to refer to the original Hebrew. However, the website wouldn’t open and so I opened my NKJV Study Bible but got nudged for some reason to grab the classic edition of the Amplified Bible from my bookshelf.  During the course of drawing attention to European hostility towards Israel, I noticed this Bible’s verse 9 hints at a very subtle nuance: one that may explain the consequences upon Europe of the EU’s policy!

Chapter 2 covers the third vision prophet Zecharia received, which is of the measuring and rebuilding of Jerusalem and of the Temple. Although set in the decline of the Babylonian Empire it foreshadows the eschatalogical New Jerusalem. YET I WAS STRUCK THAT IT MAY APPLY TODAY TOO!

Historically, verse 9 describes the Lord’s retribution upon the Babylonians, yet it could also promise that happening any time in the future. BUT AHA! – it’s already been happening!!  That is, the consequences of EU hostility are already ongoing, or have been so for at least the past couple of years in the massive migration of refugees into Europe!

My quick reading of that short text led me to colour it to distinguish between what I thought is the writer’s narrative (v.8) and the Lord’s words (v.9), but later I learned that translation of v.8 is difficult. The New Bible Commentary’s opinion is ‘The speaker is the Messiah, who is sent to the Jews, to whom pertains the glory (cf Rom 9:4) to be their Protector…(repetition of) ‘sent me’ emphasises the importance of the commission…to protect His own from all hostile powers that menace this precious possession. Others, however, think that the pronoun refers to the enemies of Israel and means that they endanger their own safety by hostility towards the elect (emphases mine).

In fact, both option could now be in play: ie. not only to protect His own from all hostile powers menacing His people but also to act specifically against them!

Historically, the colonial empires of Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Holland had taken control of lands across Africa, Asia and the Middle-East and used their populations as a source of labour, servants and military personnel.

Verse 9 clearly implies that such servants of European colonial empires will come and ‘plunder’ those empires, either there or back on home territory, as a Divine directive. Why? Because they’ve ‘touched the apple of His eye’ – His Jewish people and His holy city – Jerusalem!

That is, nations which permit their citizens to insult and denigrate the Jewish people and their state – and making others boycott Israeli goods and services! – would eventually find that the Lord’s declared intention gets applied in their own lands, which is what we’ve been seeing before our very eyes.  And this is despite many European nations subscribing to the Laws of Holocaust Denial.


As mentioned in the previous Update, not only the Palestinian leadership but also that of the European Union refuse to recognise and stand resolutely against the Word of God.

On his December visit to Europe Israel’s PM Netanyahu encouraged its leaders to be open to Donald Trump’s recognising the reality of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital, but Europe’s foreign policy chief rejected his plea outright. That’s hardly surprising in view of the EU’s parliament building in Strasbourg being specifically built like the Tower of Babel, as described in UK/EU in/out #2 cont’d – Significant Spiritual Signs.

Here’s this week’s events that contribute towards a scriptural judgement; headlines and extract as on Koenig World Watch Daily homepage:

Abbas urges EU to swiftly recognize Palestine, says it will encourage peace

‘Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday urged the member states of the European Union to “swiftly” recognize the state of Palestine, arguing such a move would preserve the Palestinians’ hope for peace.

“We truly consider the European Union as a true partner and friend, and therefore we call its member states to swiftly recognize the state of Palestine and we confirm that there is no contradiction between recognition and the resumption of negotiations,” Abbas said in an address in Brussels. 

‘Abbas, who gave his remarks alongside EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, called on the EU to play a larger role in the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. “The EU should play a political role in this Middle East peace process in order to reach a just solution on the basis of internationally recognized terms and decisions,” Abbas said.’

EU promises to back Abbas’ demand for Jerusalem

Council of Europe to vote on condemning Trump’s Jerusalem recognition

Why is the EU warmly welcoming this rabid racist and Holocaust denier?  He should have been arrested as soon as he set foot in Europe!

Maybe the Lord regards Abbas as a modern-day Haman, as intimated in the opening minutes of the prophetic words for 2018 and beyond delivered by John Kilpatrick. (We’d not heard them prior to my completing this post – so this sentence has only been added at the last minute before publication.)

Caroline Glick, the internationally respected editor and journalist with first-hand experience of coordinating negotiations with the PLO, writes of Mahmoud Abbas’ personal history in Time for Trump to cut the cord on the Palestinians:

‘Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said that Abbas’ remarks (in Cairo at PLO conference on 19th January) harken back to “things that led him to be accused years ago of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.” Abbas’ PhD. thesis, which he wrote for a Soviet university controlled by the KGB in the 1960s denied the Holocaust.

‘Over the past 25 years, the Western and Israeli leaders that have hailed Abbas as a moderate dismissed the significance of his doctorate – which he later published in Jordan as a best-selling book – saying it was a relic of the PLO’s former rejection of Israel’s right to exist…

‘Contrary to Rivlin’s view of Abbas racist assault on Jews as a throwback to an earlier time, antisemitic diatribes have been a consistent feature of Abbas’ public statements, whether he is speaking to Arab or Western audiences.

‘In a speech before the European Parliament in 2016, for instance, Abbas recycled the medieval blood libel that Jews poison the wells of Christians. That blood libel incited the death of thousands of Jews through the ages.

‘Speaking to European lawmakers, Abbas said, “Certain rabbis in Israel have said very clearly to their government that our water should be poisoned in order to have Palestinians killed.”

As for his Holocaust denial being a thing of the past, Abbas posted his doctoral thesis on his official website. His lies are taught as fact in Holocaust education in the Palestinian school system – which he controls.’ 

For more well-informed commentary on PLO claims and strategy  read:

Clearly, Britain’s departure from the EU will help us avoid what the Lord will bring upon Europe – although we are not an entirely innocent party!  Doubtless, the verses we’ve considered is a very small portion of all scriptures behind the Lord’s warning to Britain to “Come out!” that David Noakes received in November 2015, part of which reads:

“Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

Thus, the Lord’s deep desire is for the UK to avoid the judgement He’s already bringing upon the EU (latest at Davos 2018 re France and Ireland on Brexit deal).

To enable a fuller understanding of the immense importance of this End-times matter (v11 ‘in That Day’ cf Obadiah 1:15) to ALL nations TODAY, I recommend carefully and prayerfully reading the whole of chapter two of Zecharia, as appended below (emphases added):  Continue reading

Fulfilled prophecy #25 – worse than Watergate scandal surfacing

Maybe like me you’ve been ‘watching’ world events unfold since the start of this Second Millennium?

As in my ‘Bio‘, it all began for me as a non-Christian in the mid-80’s with reading The Invisible Hand and then noting events, especially after an astonishing dream in ’92 about the fall of Islam.

After hearing “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”, and as that was in 2008 when Barack Obama was running for election as president, I paid closer attention to what was going on in the USA. Within months I started writing on End-times and Christian prophecy and had objections to his Cairo Speech and later asked, Is Obama’s Impeachment Now On The Cards? (2013).


In ‘going where the evidence leads’ Melanie Philips, one of Britain’s leading columnists, writes this week (emphases mine),

‘If you are in Britain and relying on the BBC and mainstream media for your information, you probably won’t know that a political scandal has been developing in the Washington swamp which has the potential to make Watergate look positively puny by comparison. You probably won’t know that what passes for the accepted wisdom about President Trump may be in the process of being turned on its head.

‘The reason there’s been no news coverage is that it suggests Trump has been not the instigator but the target of collusion – between the FBI, the Justice Department, the Democratic party and the Russians, first to prevent him from being elected US President and then to lever him out of office…’

Melanie concludes,

‘If all this is true, it is one of the greatest political scandals in American history: the corruption by a sitting president of the top tiers of the security and justice establishment to pervert the course of justice to exonerate the Democratic presidential candidate of any crimes while simultaneously trying to frame her opponent; and then a further conspiracy between the Democratic party and administration officials to remove the duly elected President from office through an administrative coup based on a further criminal abuse of process.

‘Whether or not this turns out to be the case remains to be seen. But given what’s going on, the silence or muted disdain of most of the mainstream media in the US and their echo-chamber in Britain is remarkable. It is the most graphic evidence of a collective hysteria about Donald Trump which has effaced not just the tattered fragments of media objectivity but reason itself.’

Whatever’s she writing about?  Read the in-between bits of Melanie’s post by clicking on A scandal maybe SO enormous it has produced..silence and muted disdain.


In his Introduction to Our Finest Hour issue 2:2 (March 2017) Neville Johnson writes, ‘The cup of iniquity is filling up and the fullness of God’s purposes for the church is now upon us.’  That issue closes with a special, extra item ‘The Official War Against Trump’. Barack Obama’s official post-presidential website features and describes ‘Organizing For Action’, and I understand it involves the billionaire George Soros.  My Warning Re USA briefly covers this matter.


As a result of a mix of events and visions, plus ‘gremlins’ when trying to email, in late May 2015 I mused upon ‘Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – Next EU??’  And sure enough all sorts of rot started creeping out from the gutters the next year, as told in Fulfilled Prophecy #10; and confirmed by what Revd John Kilpatrick heard from the Lord on ‘An Eruption of Corruption’.  Then came news (here), followed by a vision received by Stuart Wentworth as Exposure of Sin, Corruption, Darkness as Sign of God’s Coming Glory.

“There’s going to be an eruption of corruption. There’s going to be an eruption of corruption.” (He said) “The nation will see it”. (John Kilpatrick 6Nov’16)

Thus began an avalanche of public exposure of deep-rooted sinfulness.  EG. greed and corruption rife across world football, Russian doping in sports, injustices in criminal inquiries and convictions (eg Hillsborough, Ted Heath inquiry) and Hollywood’s sex scandals etc etc. Hardly a week now goes by without such news in the headlines, thus fulfilling contemporary prophecies.

How do Israelis, Arabs & Evangelicals view VP Pence’s historic, controversial address to the Knesset? (With links)

Joel also shares his informative opinion on Palestinian leaders’ stance…

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Pence-KnessetUPDATED: (Jerusalem, Israel) — On Monday, I was humbled to be invited to watch Vice President Mike Pence’s historic address to the Knesset from inside the chamber.

It was the first time an American Vice President had ever addressed Israel’s 120-seat parliament, and Mr. Pence certainly covered a lot of ground and stirred an enormous amount of controversy. Among his key points, the V.P.: 

  • Spoke of his personal affection for Israel and the Jewish people and cited or alluded to more Scripture than probably any foreign leader who has spoken there.
  • Called on the Palestinian leadership to “return to the table” and agree to direct peace talks with Israel (they have refused such talks since 2014).
  • Praised Israeli, Egyptian and Jordanian leaders for making peace treaties in the past with American help.
  • Underscored the nuances of President Trump’s December announcement on Jerusalem and discussed the U.S. embassy’s move from Tel…

Welby’s inability to stand on the scriptures comes home to roost

By Victoria Jones/PAIn needing to Pray for the Pope to Take a Stand upon the Bible, we should include the Archbishops of Canterbury and York too. (In fact, I nearly included ‘and all clergy’ in that title but it was entirely about Pope Francis and Jerusalem.)

2017 saw Archbishop Justin Welby’s standing enter into deep decline as a result of his inability to give satisfactory answers to interview questions and deal with transgender issues. For example, he was taken to task by Rev Dr Gavin Ashenden in Justin Welby Unable to Give a ‘Straight Answer’ on Whether Gay Sex is Sinful.

Furthermore, a HUGE furor is now brewing over his handling of a past Anglican court’s inquiry into an unsubstantiated claim of abuse against the revered, deceased Bishop of Chichester, Dr George Bell.

Gavin opens his latest in this ‘sexuality saga’, Welby’s Will-to-Power: Pride & Ego – Sanity & Sanctity in the Saga of George Bell:

‘The facts are on the whole well known. Lord Carlile, having been forbidden by his terms of reference to judge the innocence or guilt of poor Bishop Bell, did allow himself to tell the world that Bell would never have been found guilty in a court of law. (Mail Online columnist) Peter Hitchens was almost apoplectic with surprise and frustration at Welby’s intransigence…’

His deep experience gives Gavin perspicacity of insight for analysing the situation. His careful, well-considered exposition is bang on target and thus comes with my high commendation to my readers. In particular, Gavin observes that Safeguarding policies bring a negative, political effect and he considers the real issue in this saga is that of pride and corruption of power.:

‘So, what does it mean when the Archbishop says “I cannot with integrity rescind my statement”? He has at best muddled himself. He is in the grip of what appears to be both a serious sin and a psychological distortion.

‘At some point, he has conflated what he thinks is right with the notion of his integrity. He has convinced himself, having fallen victim to pride, that since what he thinks is right must be right, it is his ‘integrity’ that is at stake when he is challenged.

‘But what the challenge to his opinion has done, in fact, is to expose his soul.

‘One might argue in his defence that all that has been exposed is stupidity, because one would have to be dull in mind not to weigh up the evidence and come to the conclusion along with the choristers and the historians and the ecumenists that Bell was innocent. But Welby is not stupid.  In which case one has to ask if he has become proud and obdurate.

‘And the trouble with pride and obduracy is that, if it bites sufficiently deeply, one’s cognitive reasoning can become impaired.

‘What might flow from this?

‘The great danger he is in is that he loses all spiritual and moral authority. He becomes a hollow figure of religion, rather than an authentic spiritual leader and inspiration…’ (emphasis added).

Gavin concludes his observations:

‘Perhaps he might be firstly warned by the words of Jesus,: “Whoever wants to save his life, will lose it.” (Matt 16.25)

‘but then encouraged: “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” Luke 14.11.’

Gavin’s first posting on this issue Welby Must Apologise or Resign was mentioned in the lead-in to my ‘God-incidents’ Validate Three Prophetic Visions.

Lastly, readers may also like to note blogger Archbishop Cranmer’s opinion in Justin Welby has staked his reputation and legacy on the maintenance of a profound injustice to Bishop George Bell and its attached discussion.

Pray for Pope Francis to take a stand upon the Bible

Thursday 18th to 25th January is designated as Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, which was started 110 years ago within the Roman Catholic Church and has since become an international ecumenical act of observance.

In Liphook, Anglican, Methodist and Catholic churches each sent a representative to the next church in that sequence to say the morning prayers during yesterday’s services. In our Church Centre, after leading the prayer Jesus taught His disciples to pray, Catholic Richard T opened his prayers for unity by praying for the Pope and all church leaders.

I added personally that Pope Francis have a direct revelation of the Lord’s heart for and of holy writ concerning Jerusalem because his recent actions have left a great deal to be desired. It certainly appears he’s either ignorant of the scriptures, or has an entirely different agenda, notwithstanding apparently benign intentions.

Were Pope Francis a Bible-believing Christian he’d need to abide by that church’s own teachings on scripture’s authority. His predecessor Leo XII’s famous encyclical of 1893  ‘Providentissimus Deus‘ on ‘the importance for Catholics to study the Holy Scriptures solemnly affirms that the entire Bible is God’s Word, holy and true’. Fifty years later Pope Pius XII in his encyclical ‘Divino Afflante Spiritu’ notes how Leo’s program for scriptural studies bore great fruit so that “confidence in the authority and historical value of the Bible..among Catholics is completely restored”!  [The Holy Family Bible, 1956]

Thus, Pope Francis has no excuse for failing to stand upon even the very few scriptures covered in this blog on the centrality of Jerusalem in Divine Providence, or for lending support to teaching and doctrines opposed to God’s Holy Word!


Friday 19th January’s Koenig’s Eye View From The White House lists events under the sub-head ‘Pope Francis siding with Muslims over Jerusalem, supports an Arab State in Judea and Samaria, meeting with Muslim leaders‘:

December 6, 2017: Pope supports UN Resolutions on Jerusalem

“Everyone should be committed to respecting the city’s status quo, in accordance with the pertinent UN resolutions …I pray to the Lord that its identity to be preserved and strengthened for the benefit of the Holy Land, the Middle East and the whole world and that wisdom and prudence prevail to prevent new elements of tension from being added to a global context already convulsed by so many cruel conflicts.”

December 25, 2017: Pope supports two-states and asks for peace in Jerusalem and the Holy Land. supports UN borders

“We see Jesus in the children of the Middle East who continue to suffer because of growing tensions between Israelis and Palestinians. On this festive day, let us ask the Lord for peace for Jerusalem and for all the Holy Land. Let us pray that the will to resume dialogue may prevail between the parties and that a negotiated solution can finally be reached, one that would allow the peaceful coexistence of two States within mutually agreed and internationally recognized borders.”

January 19, 2018: Pope renews call to maintain Jerusalem status quo

Referring to “the unique nature of Jerusalem” in a letter to Egypt’s top Muslim cleric, Ahmed al-Tayeb, Francis said that “only a special status, guaranteed by the international community, can preserve its identity, (and) unique vocation as a place of peace.”  Only that “would allow a future of reconciliation and hope for the entire region,” he said. “The Holy See will not cease from urgently calling for dialogue to resume between Israelis and Palestinians for a negotiated solution aimed at the peaceful coexistence of two states,” the letter continued.

As that cleric should be treated with the utmost suspicion, the pontiff’s dealings with him could be regarded as the height of stupidity or duplicity!

Koenig is of the opinion that, in his continued support for an Arab State in Judea, Samaria and E Jerusalem, the Pope needs to read the Bible’s prophecies, especially Zechariah chapter 12.  Also that, having met with Jordanian leader King Abdullah II, Francis will – along with Turkey’s president Erdogan on February 5 – call on President Trump to reverse his Jerusalem declarations.  Not forgetting that last month Erdogan cited the Pope’s statements in support of his outrage against Trump and Israel!!


Not taking a stand upon the Word of God leaves Rome’s Pontiff the fall-guy to ‘the most influential Muslim in the world’ (2013 survey).  The Kingdom’s expectation of high levels of personal honesty expected of disciples and knowledge of ‘The Father of Lies’ makes Christians blithely ignorant of religiously sanctioned lying in order to protect or promote Islam.

As I stated in Catholic and Orthodox Churches Choose Fealty to 7th Century Muslim Edict,  deception and dissimulation are sanctioned in the Qur’an under the doctrine of  taqiyya. According to a former Islamic studies professor at the American University of Beirut, Sami Mukaram, “Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era”.

“There’s nothing like knowing Arabic—that is, being privy to the Muslim world’s internal conversations on a daily basis — to disabuse oneself of the supposed differences between so-called “moderate” and “radical” Muslims.”  (Raymond Ibrahim, author of The Al Qaeda Reader.)

Pope Francis gave a noble speech upon meeting Ahmed Al-Tayeb last April (read his 12 Key Points) – and has since met him a third time – but author Raymond, of Coptic Christian parents, thoroughly demolishes the facade in documenting the cleric’s history of adherence to all the extreme demands and nuances of Islam in ‘The Real Bomb is in Islam’s Books‘ and Dr Ahmed al-Tayeb: Meet “the World’s Most Influential Muslim”, published 2017 and 2016 respectively.

So, let’s pray for the scales to fall from the pontiff’s eyes and for him to hear our Father in Heaven on this whole issue. Also, for Ahmed al-Tayeb to have a ‘Damascus road’ experience of his supposed prophet Jesus being The Son of God…AMEN!

Bible Update: Zech 12:2-3 – PA leader’s 25-year strategy broken over Jerusalem

The oracle of the word of the LORD affirming Israel. Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him:
“Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness (‘threshold of shivering’) to all surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.
‘And it shall happen in that day that will I make Jerusalem a very heavy (burdensome) stone for all peoples: all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered (together) against it”. (Zechariah 12:1-3 NKJV with KJV per Hebrew)

Having long bitten the hand that feeds it, the Palestinian Authority’s President Abbas has now received a long overdue “slap in the face’. The Holocaust denier’s reaction was to threaten war! So he’ll break upon the ‘burdensome stone’ that is the ‘apple’ of the Holy One of Israel’s ‘eye’!

Trump-Abbas Credit: Reuters

Within the past week he’s thrown the biggest tantrum over Trump’s moving America’s embassy to Jerusalem and introducing a way to overcome the PA’s continual intransigence over the ‘peace’ process. BUT the proposal is not that of Donald Trump alone (nor Israel’s) but comes in tandem with the Arab nations of Saudia Arabia, Egypt and United Arab Emirates!

Courtesy Koenig’s WWD headlines/extracts (with emphases mine), the sequence of recent events reads:

  • Abbas Cancels Peace Negotiations Due to Saudi-leaked Jerusalem Plan‘(PA) President Mahmoud Abbas decided to deliver Sunday’s speech – in which he ruled out a peace process as long as Donald Trump is US president – after parts of Trump’s Middle East peace plan were leaked to him by the Saudis, Channel 2 reported on Tuesday night. Even before Sunday’s speech, Ben Caspit of The Jerusalem Post’s Hebrew sister paper Maariv reported last week that Abbas was angered by the preliminary reports of Trump’s plan that the Saudis had given him. The report said those leaks were the real reason Abbas did not intend to return to the negotiating table, and not Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.’
  • Abbas: “Jerusalem is the Gate of Peace or War – Trump Must Choose” – ‘(PA) President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday continued to rail against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, cautioning that actions taken in the city could spark a future war, while also advocating a “peaceful” path. “Jerusalem is the gate of peace and war — Trump must choose,” said Abbas, who was at a conference in the Al Azhar University in Cairo on “global support for Jerusalem.” While warning of war, the 82-year-old Palestinian leader also reiterated several times that the only way forward for Palestinians to oppose both American and Israeli policies involved peaceful means.“A popular and peaceful resistance is the path that will succeed and that we will continue on,” Abbas said.
  • Trump Cuts UNRWA Funding Amid Abbas Assault ‘The Trump administration informed the UN Relief and Works Agency on Tuesday that it was cutting tens of millions of dollars in aid to the organization, amid an escalating diplomatic crisis between Washington and Ramallah, a US official told The Jerusalem Post. President Donald Trump heeded the advice of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster – in addition to that of the Israeli government – and agreed to transfer $60 million to the UN body for now, as opposed to cutting all funding outright. But the remaining pledge of $65m. has been withheld “for future consideration,” according to a letter sent to the agency. While the policy decision came out of the State Department, which faced a UN dues payment this week, the question of how to proceed became an interagency debate among Trump’s top foreign policy staff and involved the president himself. Only one of those figures – Nikki Haley, Trump’s ambassador to the UN – advocated for a full and immediate aid cut.’
  • (At UN) Haley Takes PA to Task After ‘Hateful’ Comments by AbbasIn her first official reaction to (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas’s fiery speech this week, US Envoy to UN Nikki Haley said Washington is “not going to pay to be abused.”  Speaking during a wide-ranging interview…Haley took the PA to task. “Don’t think that you can sit there and say hateful things about us and turn around and write you a check. It’s wrong in every turn,” she said.

    Abbas effectively threw in the towel over the weekend, offering a scathing speech targeting the US administration generally and President Donald Trump personally by dismissing their peace effort and calling for his “house to be destroyed.”  “Damn your money!” Abbas declared. Israeli politicians and Jewish American groups decried the speech as a racist diatribe that revealed Abbas’s true colors. The speech included conspiracy theories and fundamental questioning of the existence and justification for a Jewish state. Abbas also reiterated his position that the US could no longer be seen as a fair broker in future peace talks.

    “We’re not going to reward bad behavior,” Haley said. “Here you’ve got the Palestinians who are basically saying they’re going to cut the US out of the peace process. They’re saying they no longer want to have anything to do with us. They go and take us to the United Nations and try, basically, are very hostile in what they say and what they do. We’re not going to pay to be abused. It doesn’t make sense.”

As ever, pre-MSM news outlet DebkaFile provides good insights in Abbas’ Ultimatum to Trump: Choose Between Palestinian Jerusalem or War. This in-depth analysis opens – and note opinion about EU funding.:

‘Palestinian Mahmoud Abbas kicked back hard after grasping he was confronted with an orderly, Arab-backed US peace plan that left his strategy in ruins. Abbas now sees he is cornered by his nemesis: Trump’s move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, was not just a one-off whim, but a component of the “deal of the century,” which the US president and his advisers had crafted for months together with Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman and the UAE ruler Sheikh Muhammed Bin Ziyad.
‘The Palestinian leader’s first predicament was how to explain to the Palestinian and Arab public what happened to his master strategy of the past 25 years, for using world opinion to force a pro-Palestinian peace solution down Israel’s throat. Not too long ago, Abbas boasted he was about to pull it off. Now it is crashing before his eyes. It is not enough for him to yell that the “deal of the century” is the “slap of the century.”
‘Here and there, he may find international pro-Palestinian stalwarts, but the doors are slamming shut as funds for UN bodies and NGOs dry up. Even the Europeans, who dislike Trump and sympathize with the Palestinians, are beginning to think twice about sticking to a blunt line against the US and Israel. They are reluctant to buck the two allies’ partners, the oil-rich Saudi and Emirate rulers, a luxury they can ill-afford in these times of profound economic decline.’

The known details of the plan are noteworthy: ‘Much of the criticism of the US-Arab peace plan is prompted by a misapprehension. The plan is based strongly on a two-state solution that offers the Palestinians their own state and negates bi-national Israeli-Palestinian statehood. But the contours are different from any former peace proposal. Gone for good are the pre-1967 war lines which were Abbas’ sine qua non. According to the fragments leaked about the new proposal, which is still on the work bench, this Palestinian state would rise on territory currently governed by the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria…

‘This plan for Palestinian statehood bears little resemblance to the goal of the 50-year old Palestinian struggle. The Palestinian national movement has consistently aspired to a state that would swallow Israel and extinguish the Zionist visionFor Abbas this prospect is anathema. He is so beside himself that on Sunday, he cursed the house of US President Donald Trump before the PLO central committee. But, then on Monday, Jan 16, Trump whipped out his ultimate weapon and slashed aid to the UN Works and Relief Agency for Palestinian refugees, from $165m to $60m..’ (read in full here).

FASCINATING! As Bill Koenig says, “The Bible is playing out right before our eyes.”

Melanie Philips’ deep knowledge of this man’s character and history is very revealing.  Her article on his speech, Abbas Tears Of the Mask, concludes,‘In short, Britain and the EU continue to support, validate and this connive at an agenda aimed at the extermination of Israel promoted by hallucinatory lies and libels about the Jewish people along with gross Holocaust denial.

    ‘Abbas’s speech should be sent to every member of the British parliament, and the Prime Minister, Theresa May, should be asked how Britain can continue to give any money at all to such open anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers. She should be asked how the British government can continue to support giving such people a state of their own. She should be asked why the British government has ignored this horrifying reality, and the constant mortal danger it poses for the Israelis, for so long.

    ‘But then, many British people will be unaware of the appalling nature of Abbas’s speech since the BBC chose to bowdlerise it, as BBC Watch observes.

    ‘Abbas clearly felt he had nothing to lose by making this speech. America has made clear it will no longer give the time of day to such an unconscionable agenda. Only Britain and the EU continue to keep it alive, to their undying shame.’
