This month’s critical convergence of historical cycles

AN EXTRA-SPECIAL THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED UP IN EARLY 2012!

A month after launching this blog in late November 2011, I introduced my first readers to accredited Christian journalist and ‘Watcher in The White House’, William Koenig in Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/ Financial Cycles. This referred to his four-year investigation of the work and predictions of the financial markets technical analyst Eric Hadik. (Read About William Koenig and Who is Eric Hadik?)

Erik Hadik built his renowned expertise upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories based upon his discoveries of mathematical-geometrical principles in the Bible!  Erik’s material is published at Inside Track Trading. (My very brief introduction to cycles may be read in the blog’s God-incidences hub.)

After closely following Hadik’s application of those theories to natural and social events, Bill published his findings simultaneously with the launch of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger and attested to having “found (Hadik’s) calculations extremely accurate”. So, it certainly seems the Lord wants His people to learn about these matters.

Before proceeding and if having time and inclination, you may want to get ‘up to speed’ by scanning through my brief blogs on Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year. I’d like to  draw your attention to Erik’s evidence for his thesis on Historic Aprils For USA & Israel. This has led him to dub today, April 19th and the days thereabouts, as being a “Date of Infamy for America”!

Digging into those links will give good grounding for Bill’s comprehensive compilation from four of his 2016-17 reports in.:

The Converging of Major Historical Patterns in 2017-18 and Jewish New Year 5777

(Read document by clicking/tapping title.) This paper focuses upon the significance of 2017/5777 as regards the land of Israel, biblically and geographically. In conjunction with data from Erik Hadik, Bill covers these excitingly informative topics in detail:

  • Donald Trump born exactly 700 days before Isarel became a nation
  • On first day in office POTUS Trump was 70 years, 7 months, 7 days old
  • America’s 45th President, Isaiah 45 and 44:28; Tim La Haye study notes
  • Jubilee Year and liberation of Jerusalem 1917 & 1967 (50 years) in depth
  • Five potential major developments in US-Israel relations in 2017
  • Orthodox Jews believe Messiah’s appearance possible in 2017
  • Biblical origins of 70-nation anti-Israel Paris conference
  • Several scheduled astronomical events are Biblically relevant
  • Convergence of 25, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 100 year cycles re Jerusalem
  • Culmination of four major 70-year cycles from 1948 to 2018
  • 7-year cycle from the beginning of the ‘Arab Spring’
  • Computers and technology 70-year cycle.

Last weekend’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House provides a detailed list of critical events in April 2016, plus timeline of them within this current April – of which we’re all too well aware!

Bill asks, “Were the last two weeks of April 2016 the most prophetically significant period in history?”

Typically, he provides a  detailed analysis of their events and regards this present time as being, “Another prophetically pivotal month: many major headlines and news of final-day nations that will play out in the rest of April” (ie. 2017).

So in this light, it’s very poignant that yesterday Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to hold a snap general election on 8th June, thereby thwarting ‘Remoaners’ plans and thus strongly forging ahead with Brexit!

And today she got the backing of MPs by an overwhelming 522 to 13 votesApril 19th, an exceptionally historic day for the UK!

MOST EXCELLENT!!

Intercessor’s vision of Heaven’s Council Meeting on UK

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this recorded on Sunday 2nd April by Ruth Grigg:

VISION OF A HEAVENLY COUNCIL MEETING ABOUT THE UNITED KINGDOM

I had been praying for the UK and the government etc. and I asked the Lord to give me strategies in how to pray more effectively for the nation.

In a vision, I started to see myself walking down a pathway. I was dressed in a white robe with jewels embroidered onto the robe, gold around the edges and carried a gold staff. I walked up to a mansion-type building and knocked on the door to a Council. Angels opened the doors and I walked up to another door and knocked. The door opened. I was shown to a seat near the front to observe the proceedings. I was told not so speak unless asked to, only to observe – I also scribed. [RB note: at Saturday’s mentoring day Dr Stone included this function in several operational modes of the prophetic gifting.]

I was in a court-room chamber, where the Council met (refc1). They were holding a meeting concerning the UK.

During the proceedings, Satan stood up and said he had plans for the UK, that he had rights and access because we had opened the doors for him.

Satan said he had plans to bring deeper darkness to this nation, so deep that we cannot get out or return to where we have previously been (2). He has plans to hem in the UK, surround us and pressurize us so that our nations conforms to others around us and looses our own identity. He said he has plans to remove Child Benefit and other benefits from families – to bring families into further poverty (3).

He also said:

He has plans to make housing and house-buying more difficult, almost impossible – causing more homelessness and stress on families.

He has plans to ruin and bring down the Health Service so it is more chaos and disorder.

He has to bring further and deeper divide within the churches over issues of sexuality and morality.

He has plans to allow and encourage all religions and cults to operate more openly and freely with endorsements from the government – all except Christ followers (4)

He has plans to confuse and nullify the morals and ethics of the youth and children in our nation.

He has plans to bring higher levels of stress and strife, by raising up ‘education’ and ‘business success’ on the alter of life – making them into gods – bringing with it heavy loses on health, and family life.

Then the Council Leader (God) stood up and asked the church – “What answer does The Church give?”

The Church stood up (seemingly weak and silent) and said, “We will pray.”

The Council Leader (God) asked the Lord what answer he gives?

Then the Lord stood up in the Council and said:

I will stir up my people to pray and intercede, fast and repent. I will call them out from hiding and cause their light to shine.

I will put my compassion and strength in their hearts so they will rise up and heal those who are broken and hurt and they will be lights on a hill (5).

I will raise up intercessors to stand on the wall and in the gaps to guard the nation (6), to close and open doors, to bind up and loose (7), to call for angelic help and to call for the army of God to rise up; and when they call on me, I will hear them and heal their land and their people (8). I will put my word in their mouth and they will speak out in truth and wisdom, faith, power and love, then they will decree the things I have spoken.

I will strengthen their armour and their sword (9); in the heat of the battle, they will not be burned; in the heat of the battle my angels will fight for and with them.

They will rise up and address their nation and when they call on me I will provide for their needs; they will see my grace and glory. Nothing shall defeat them because I am fighting for them (10).

Then I was asked to stand up and speak:

Ruth, what is your response?

My response was: I will do what the Holy Spirit leads me to do. I will pray and intercede. I will speak forth in truth and I will teach the nations.

This is where the vision ended.

A historic day, not only for Britain but also globally re. Genesis 12 & Psalm 2

Now the Lord had said to Abram, “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 

“I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3, NKJV)

As I write, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, has received PM Theresa May’s letter of ‘Declaration of Independence’ giving notice of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. She announced to the House of Commons that the Article 50 letter has been delivered. Hooray!

Britain’s ambassador to the EU Tim Barrow delivers formal notice of the UK’s intention to leave the bloc to European Council president Donald Tusk in Brussels CREDIT: AF

A year ago none would have expected such a severe shaking in government and change in leadership in the United Kingdom (as well as in the United States of America) – as said before, obviously the Hand of God must have been in this (eg here). AND, in accordance with what He revealed to one who listened to Him, He told his prophets in advance!

‘Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

‘A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?’ (Amos 3:7-8 NKJV)

You may be interested to read Archbishop Cranmer’s ‘take’ on this and note reference by ‘TropicalAnglican’ in the ensuring thread to a ‘brexit’ vision on New Year’s Eve 2015.

Let us never, ever forget the essential prime point – whatever anyone may say – in leaving the EU is to remove ourselves from its inequitable system of judiciary injustice. That fact was well emphasised by David Chapman in The EU’s Background and An Alternative.  Also, it’s featured strongly in Edmund Phillimore’s conclusions drawn a week before the June referendum, which closes by reminding readers:

‘Brexit will not restore us to godly government, for many of our politicians are secular humanists. But it will be a step in the right direction, taking us out of a system of government that does not acknowledge God and his sovereignty over his creation.  It will restore us to the principles of our ancient constitution and democratic monarchy that honours God in the Coronation oath which still stands.  We should trust God , and remember that he can restore life to dry and scattered bones.’ (Our Christian Heritage in Church and State – new addition to blog.)

In my humble opinion, leaving the EU will enable Britain to move back into its God-given destiny and, as Mrs May has a far better appreciation of the purpose and role of Israel in the world than anti-Semitic EU, we can expect the Lord to follow-up His promise to bless us – AND as arranged during PM Netanyahu’s visit to London last month, a British-Israeli task force is proceeding to prepare for new trade deals now Article 50 has been triggered. (After USA, the UK is Israel’s second largest trading partner.)

The USA should also be the recipient of scripture’s promised blessings too now there’s no longer any light showing between their alliance with Israel and their individual geopolitical interests.

TOWARDS A NEW ARAB SPRING

As in Prophetic Scripture Update #3, today’s meeting of Sunni Arab heads of states in Jordan may result in their acceptance of the Jewish state of Israel as a partner in working towards an acceptable solution to the Israel-Palestine issue. They may want to wave a ‘hammer’ at ‘mule-headed’ Mahmoud Abbas – and better still, clout him with one!

So, according to Genesis 12 all those Sunni nations will be blessed in dealing properly with Israel – and all parties thus move toward recognising Messiah Jesus. For decades the scenario given in Psalm 2 has applied in that intractable Middle-Eastern enmity, as well as all reprobate nations:

‘Why do the Gentiles throng tumultuously and the people plot a worthless thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His anointed, saying “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us”.

‘He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath and distress them with His deep displeasure… (NKJV)

The psalm continues to describe events, especially the declaration of Jesus as Mashiach or Messiah to the Jewish elders (Matt 26:63-66) and commissioning his disciples unto the nations. Its conclusion may be read as a promise to those who come to respect His people and their Anointed One:

‘Now, therefore, be wise O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with (reverential) fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son (embrace discipline, receive instruction), lest the LORD be angry and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little.

‘Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.’

That scripture may prophesy blessing upon that meeting and its outcome, all of which may fit in with an open vision I had when visiting Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship for the first time in 2003.

Being unfamiliar with the speakers I’d heard a little about them from Nina and knew so little about Heidi Baker of Iris Ministries (Iris Global). However, as she started addressing the conference I suddenly had an open vision as though I was in orbit over central Africa and saw tall flames leaping high into the atmosphere over the whole Mozambique area to the right. I then saw them sweeping up the eastern side of Africa and into Sudan and Egypt. Its Mediterranean coast sat on the curvature of the globe and I saw this holy fire go along it and across the Sinai peninsular into the Arabian peninsula!  .

[Upon speaking to Rolland Baker about this, he replied it’s similar to what their director Supresa Sithole had seen for the ministry, which has brought whole Muslim provinces to Jesus.]

Therefore, we trust and pray the Lord is doing many new things globally today…

Kenneth Hagin: a prophetic vision for the USA

Thank you Charisma News for publishing this article by Bert Farias (on 26 August 2016), the sharing of which would appear to be of the Lord’s timing, as in the previous post:

KENNETH HAGIN’S NEVER-BEFORE-PUBLISHED 1963 VISION 

This vision was given to the late Kenneth E. Hagin in 1963. It was shared with me by a friend with inside connections to old archives of teachings and prophecies never before published or made public. I believe it is now the time to share such prophecies for the hour of the manifestation of these things is upon us.

For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean (Neville Nel/Flickr/Creative Commons)

Yea, the hand of the Lord was upon me … the Spirit of God moved upon me … the voice of God spoke unto me and said, “Come up, come up hither son of man.”

I went, as it were, up into the air and stood with Him, the Head of the church, even the Lord Jesus Christ…in the air. And as I looked down upon the ground I could see as a map laid out before me the entire nation—all the states of the continental United States. And as I looked He said, “Behold son, and I shall show you that which shall come to pass, and that which the eyes of many shall see. And they shall remember that their ears heard that it shall come to pass.”

For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean. It came up out of the sea as a hand and as it rose up into the air it became a dark cloud and it filled the whole atmosphere. Yea, and it swept in like a storm at sea. And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Oh Lord! What’s the meaning of this?” And He spake unto me and said, “Son, that is the darkness of atheistic communism that is sweeping across the nation—even in the minds of men in high places and politicians with great power. And this nation shall not grow more strong and you shall not have more liberty than you have now, but liberties that you’ve known and you’ve seen shall be seized and taken from you.”

And I looked again, and I could see upon the mountain a blotch, as though a bottle of ink had been spilled and spread out over several states in the south and east. And then I looked and I could see spots splotched all over the map and I said, “Lord, what meaneth this?” And He said, “Communistic-inspired hatred among races shall cause greater turmoil than your nation has seen heretofore. Yea, it is not the will of God but men’s hearts are perverse and they walk without the love of God and seek to have their own way. And so it shall be worse than you have seen.”

And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Is there a remedy? Is there a remedy? What shall the answer be?”

And He said, “Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceived and being deceived.”

And then I said, “Oh, Lord! Do we have nothing to look forward to in the future except the darkness, the blackness, war, destruction and evil?”

And He said, “Son of man, forget not your text for you look at the things not seen (the title of his message was, ‘Looking At Things Unseen’).” And so then I looked into the spirit realm and I saw falling upon that mountain a ball of fire from heaven. The closer to the Earth, the bigger it got, and then when it came to the Earth it divided into small balls or sparks of fire, and it fell upon men. And I saw an army of men rise up, and it seemed as though their hands were fire. And there sat upon their heads a tongue of fire. (When I first saw it, it seemed like their whole heads were on fire but it was tongues of fire leaping.) And I said, “What meaneth this?”

And He said, “Before the worst shall come and the day of darkness encompasses there will be those who shall go and who shall carry the fullness of My truth and the fire, not only to the states of this nation but to many other places. For there is a work that must be done, first spiritually, before the Lord shall come.

“Now prepare ye your hearts, for the time is at hand and the beginning is now; and ye shall see and ye shall know for the hand of the Lord is upon you and many of you shall be used in these last days and the work shall progress.”

Hallelujah to Jesus! Hallelujah to Jesus!

And I said to Him, “Oh Lord! May I have a small place to work?” And He said, “I shall cause thy tent to be enlarged. Yea, thou shalt have an enlarged ministry and thou shalt minister to many where you ministered to a few. Therefore, go ye back to the Earth and be thou faithful and give forth that which I tell you to give for you have been reluctant in days gone by to tell it. Now tell it boldly and speak it true for now is the day that it shall be so.”

Oh hallelujah! Oh hallelujah! Praise God! Praise God! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

For the word of the Lord came unto me saying, “The prophetic vision shall be restored unto the church, for even in the days of old under the old covenant the prophet would see by vision and prophesy, and so the prophetic vision shall be restored unto the church. And this is the time, and this is the hour, and this is the place.”

Praise God! Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! Praise God, praise God!

When I spoke up I saw this very night. I saw the vision. I was lifted up to that place. Oh men and women, thank God for His goodness to man.

RB’s Footnote:

Having been received at the height of the Cold War we could presume, as its recipient may well have done, that references to “communists” means the historical political parties east of the Berlin Wall. However, it’s a fact that marxists, left-wing fellow travellers and anti-Semites are now allied with Islamists against the West and its Christian principles.

Hence the dominant colour of black rather than red in the vision is indicative of political allegiance for we know of the ex-POTUS’ marxist-cum-muslim leanings and that he is officially ‘waging war’ against his democratically elected successor.  As a ‘starter’, see the briefing The Official War Against Trump, appended to Our Finest Hour – Warning to the USA plus my notes thereto and links to Daniel Greenfield’s articles in the previous post.

PS. also, William Koenig cites Garth Kant’s 64 Ways Obama is Sabotaging Trump.

President Donald Trump and the “42” (part 2)

This valuable insight offered by Mark Davidson is highly significant in my humble opinion – and could support not only the idea of Britain and America as the prophesied ‘Tarshish’ (and he reinforces my remarks on Obama in another recent post), but also my blogging on the revival of our spiritual and political/commercial bond (here and here).

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

So Barack Obama, supposedly the forty-second person to be constitutionally elected president of the United States, is now a former president. He has been replaced by the next person to be president, Donald Trump.

In this earlier post I suggested a theory I heard years ago about the Bible’s use of the number forty-two and its seeming application to the leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States. Ancient Israel and Judah had a total of forty-two kings before changing form and losing their independence.

In the case of the United Kingdom, William the Conqueror was the first monarch of Britain in its current form and the current reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is the forty-second monarch.

And in the case of the United States, President Obama was supposedly the forty-second constitutionally elected person and that was going to be it for the United States in its current form…

Fulfilled Prophecies #18 – fascinating flow of news re. dreams of Big Ben

Houses of Parliament: courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

To recap, my cyber-friend in Tucson, Tony Puccio, recently published two dreams about Big Ben clock tower six months after having an alarming one of its collapse, as here. On 12th February he wrote about its sequel, which I re-blogged at Big Ben and Midnight.:

“I’ve had several dreams concerning Great Britain.  The latest was last night. In the dream I could see Big Ben and the hands on the clock’s face were both in the 12 o’clock position. I remember hearing the bong of the clock’s Bell sounding as well.”

Then last Saturday morning Tony writes as follows:

“…The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging.  Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.  

“It’s my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening hence the dreams about Big Ben. “

I re-blogged that on Monday with preface, ‘it may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will’, and we shared our thoughts on Tony’s comments thread.

BREXIT BILL & SCOTLAND’S PROBLEM

My remark anticipated the ‘spanner’ Scotland’s obdurate First Minister and leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) Nicola Sturgeon could throw into the ‘works’ demanding that nation holds a second independence referendum before Brexit, in view of her desire for Scotland to separate from the United Kingdom and remain within the European Union.

As most readers will be familiar with this thorn in our side I won’t cover this in any depth, but here are this week’s front-page headlines with ‘strap-line’ from The Daily Telegraph :

  • Monday 13th: Sturgeon’s last-ditch bid to ruin Brexit – Scottish leader ready to derail Article 50 vote with threat of new referendum date (online here)
  • Tuesday 14th: The new battle for Britain – PM rules out new independence vote before Brexit and delays Article 50 (online here)
  • Wednesday 15th: Sturgeon abandons bid to stay in the EU – Campaign for referendum wobbles as poll shows most Scots are now Eurosceptics (online here).

I offer no opinion other than, “May Your kingdom come, Father, and Your will be done on our patch of earth as it is in heaven” – amen.

Note: Fulfilled Prophecy #8 part 2: – Warning of Spiritual Fierce Battle

Big Ben arises with continual ‘wake up’  

Mulling over the recent midnight theme, including the dream from o’er Pond, I’m struck by Saturday’s follow-up from Tony that may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will (see Telegraph link and Big Ben & Midnight – the dream to which Tony refers was flagged up in Visitation Time – I Am Coming With My Power Like Fire).

My Dreams and Visions

In August of 2016 I had the following vision.

I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile. Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged
The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.

It’s…

British court suppresses freedom to speak freely from the Bible

‘For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart; and there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.’ (Hebrews 4:12-13 NKJV)

After noticing Tim Stanley’s remarks echo prophetical words on ‘changing winds’ I soon recalled the suppression of the right to preach in public from the Bible in Britain, contrary to PM May’s asserting people must be able to speak about their faith.

Moreover, this means all violent intimidation against speaking the truth in love is not only subject to police harassment but is also condoned in courts!!!

Small wonder I had that vision 10 feet in front of me of the rottenness of our society, but of its salvation through believers standing on The Rock that is Christ Jesus!

The full text of Mrs May’s short speech published by the Prime Minister’s Office may be read at Shrove Tuesday 2017 Reception: Prime Minister’s Speech. I particularly note her saying (in this unexpurgated extract, emphases mine):

“…I also believe it is right that we should celebrate the role of Christianity in our country. We have a very strong tradition in this country of religious tolerance and freedom of speech, and our Christian heritage is something we can all be proud of. We must continue to ensure that people feel able to speak about their faith, and that absolutely includes their faith in Christ.

“I also believe that Christianity has an important role to play in making Britain a country that works for everyone.

“Now, the Church will not always agree with everything that the government says – and the government will not always agree with the Church. But I think there are many areas where we can work together.

“One is in addressing the persecution of Christians and religious minorities around the world which has been mentioned to me by some at the reception here today. It is hard to comprehend that today people are still being attacked and murdered because of their Christianity. We must reaffirm our determination to stand up for the freedom of people of all religions to practice their beliefs in peace and safety. And I hope to take further measures as a government to support this.”

Mrs May, please ensure all biased constabulary, judiciary and parliamentarians will fully understand and promise to comply. I trust and pray that by “practice their beliefs in peace and safety” you actually mean and will apply that first for Christians IN BRITAIN – not just for other faiths (as with Islamic hate-preachers having been free to stir up terrorist attacks for years) or anywhere we don’t have authority and legal jurisdiction.

That is, it seems Christians should be protected by the law in our once Christian nation!

bristol-magistrates-courtsThe following from Avon & Somerset Constabulary conveys a possibly unwelcome attitude, as may be inferred from the preachers’ video, possibly used to record situations in event of false accusations, having been used against them by the prosecution. (Search to read in full, with Chief Inspector’s extra remarks):

‘Two street preachers who used offensive language during an event in Bristol city centre have been convicted of a religiously aggravated public order offence. The men were arrested in Broadmead on Wednesday July 6 2016 following complaints from members of the public. 

‘As a result of the police investigation, the Crown Prosecution Service authorised the men to be charged with a religiously aggravated public order offence, which falls under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.’  

In addition to Tim Stanley’s report, I read blogger Archbishop Cranmer’s As Theresa May Preaches Freedom to Proclaim Christ, Street Preachers Are Convicted of a Public Order Offence.

Fuller details appear in Street Preachers Convicted for Quoting Bible in ‘Modern-Day Heresy Trial by Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Legal Centre.

After hearing the prosecutor’s claim that quoting parts of the King James Bible in modern Britain should be considered “abusive” and “a criminal matter”, the solicitor representing the preachers described the hearing as,

“A modern-day heresy trial, dressed up under the Public Order Act”.

Watch the preacher’s video of the supposed ‘public disturbance’, police action and talks. Naturally, there’s scope for fuller assessment and we shouldn’t consider the preachers’ actions to have been perfect or entirely beyond reproach.

Preacher Michael Stockwell had a not surprisingly upset reaction to the totalitarian nature of the court and a perspicacious assessment of its deeper implications:

I am shocked that God’s message of love, is now considered hateful and dangerous. Today, speaking God’s truth seems to be a hate crime, according to some.

“There is a very disturbing pattern here. We declare Jesus’ message and critique rival beliefs such as Islam. Some people don’t like what we say, and threaten violence to silence us. Then, instead of defending free speech and protecting us, the police shut down free speech to avoid public disorder. And then a court convicts us of provoking disorder and risking violence!

“Something has gone badly wrong. This gives a green light to Islamists and other groups to silence speech that they don’t like, simply by threatening disorder or violence.”

ANDREA WILLIAMS RESPONDS TO THE RULING AGAINST FREE SPEECH

Andrea%20360“The Bible and its teachings are the foundation of our society and provided many of the freedoms and protections that we still enjoy today. So it is extraordinary that the prosecution, speaking on behalf of the state, could say that the Bible contains abusive words which, when spoken in public, constitute a criminal offence.

Today’s ruling, in effect, states that Bible is offensive and contains illegal speech which should not be shared in public. This is a very serious state of affairs and Mike and Michael are absolutely right to appeal the decision.

“‘Offence’ is a very subjective thing and is easily manipulated to shut down viewpoints that people simply don’t like. Any suggestion that there is a right not to be offended must be strongly resisted. In today’s democracy, we need the freedom to debate, challenge and disagree.

Mike and Michael were saying nothing that wouldn’t be heard at speakers’ corner in Hyde Park – presenting the claims of the Bible, answering the crowd’s questions and objections, and responding to abuse which was hurled at them. For a court to rule that this breaks the law is extraordinary.

Please help us as we support Mike and Michael in appealing this dangerous ruling.”

Prayer-time

Perhaps its time to intercede for all who falsely judge to have a personal revelation of their day in the Highest Court where they must give an account, and realise that if they denied Jesus Christ, then He will deny them before the heavenly host.!

Lord, I ask that you apply your mercy and grace to all prosecuting persons and judges in that abomination, that they receive the same revelation of judgement in Your Holy Court as convicted me of my sinfulness, and penalty of dropping through the trap-door to Hell, upon having unexpectedly encountered your Son, Jesus Christ. AMEN.

Just after sitting down yesterday in a local farm-cafe for morning coffee Nina tore into the crossword (literally!) and I dived straight into the Telegraph broadsheet edition. As usual, I aim for the centre pages’ letters and op-eds. Interested in others’ opinions first, I may then glance at the narrow leader column.

I could not miss this headline to historian and leader writer Tim Stanley’s coverage of Tuesday’s reception for religious leaders at Downing Street (tap image for link).:

FAR MORE astonishing, as at my underlining the copy, is this columnist’s confirmation of what some Christian prophetical voices have been declaring for some time about ‘changing winds’. He writes,

“…The age of political correctness is over, we agreed. A mighty wind is rushing over the political landscape“.

He opens, ‘How refreshing to hear a prime minister talk about their Christian faith, and sound like they mean it. Even I’ve been conditioned by political correctness to find it strange…

Theresa May said that people must be able “to speak about their faith and that absolutely includes their faith in Christ”…’ (emphasis added)

More on that in my next post, but in his article Tim refers to our godly history.

‘…the sweep of British history shows how Christianity has defined all of us, whether we acknowledge it or not. Christians banned slavery, eradicated child labour and established the welfare state. The language you use, the shape of your year, the ethics you live by – all are informed by the faith. Politicians struggling to find something to connect the nation in the Brexit era would do well to try the universal, timeless search for meaning through religion. …’

His closing call reminds me of the stunning open vision I had in 2004 of a rock (of Christ) that emerged like the Pennine chain out of the ripped fabric of society, one so rotten it’s like old, perishing sacking (as in my notes on Comments on the Collapse of Society).:

‘For far too long admitting that you are a Christian has been treated like a declaration of lunacy. Time to stop. Time for Christians to come out of the closet.’  (emphasis added)

Yes indeed it’s time we make a stand, because all it takes for evil to become endemic is for men and women of faith to huddle and hide away – but standing tall comes at a price, even in Britain!

Remember, however, the Lord has declared, “There is no longer any middle-ground”!

Later, I found email notification of the word Patsy Southway brought, The United Kingdom Has An Anchor, has a lead-section headed ‘March Winds’!  So the timing of Tim’s piece and its remark is far too coincidental – ‘God-incidental’ more likely!

Readers may recall other prophecies, especially in the past year, the main ones perhaps being:

The vital issue is whether or not we will see this prime minister stand on her word about freedom of speech, especially in view of what had happened on that day in a magistrates court not too far away!   This outrageous matter is the subject of the next post…

Fulfilled prophecies #13 cont’d – the demise of the EU

eurozone

Compare the following extracts from We must leave the EU quickly – it is falling apart faster than I thought, by The Telegraph’s deputy editor and business commentator, with why the Lord wanted us out of the EU, according to David Noakes.

First, Allister Heath writes in a most concerned vein after monitoring the situation since the Referendum (emphases added):

The reality is that the EU is edging ever-closer to the abyss: it is at its weakest, most vulnerable since its creation, and it is now touch and go whether it survives 2017 or whether it is swept away in a catastrophic populist revolt.

‘Trouble is brewing not only in France, where Marine Le Pen keeps gaining ground, but also in the Netherlands, in Greece, in Italy and in eastern Europe…(AND: Spain is RUINED FOR 50 YEARS! – RB)

‘The likes of Juncker…still look at the shiny new Europa building in Brussels (cost Euro 321 million) and see a powerful, purposeful force for progress, rather than an increasingly loathed soon-to-be bankrupt bureaucracy whose demise threatens the peace and prosperity of our civilisation…

‘But where I may have been over-optimistic was that I was hoping that the EU would survive for at least another five years to 2022…

‘I’m no longer sure we have so much time. It still seems likely that the EU will stagger on…but the day of reckoning is getting ever closer. We need to leave, urgently, to insulate ourselves from the fallout. Given the gravity of the situation in France, the House of Lords should be debating how to accelerate our withdrawal from the EU, not how to delay it…

‘Remainers should stop producing anti-Brexit reports massively exaggerating difficulties… and turn their attention to ways of mitigating the fallout from the EU’s implosion.

‘It is in Britain’s interest that the EU’s demise be carefully managed…’ 

Compare that secular editor with the latter half of what David Noakes heard from the Lord in November 2015. Note the emphasised points (mine):

“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.

“Hear Me, O once godly nation and respond to my call, or you also will come to ruin in that same judgment of destruction. This is not my will for you, but you must choose the course which you will take. I urge you to respond to Me and choose life under my hand of discipline and protection, rather than death in the disaster which is even now coming upon Europe.”

In Allister’s level-headed business reports over the past year I’ve often noted his accurate analyses, especially his exposure of the fallacious opinions of economists! For example:

ADDED to that is the warning from the founding architect of the monetary union, cited by The Telegraph’s international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Euro ‘house of cards’ to collapse, warns ECB prophet:

“One day, the house of cards will collapse,” said Professor Otmar Issing, the ECB’s first chief economist and a towering figure in the construction of the single currency. In his opinion, “The European Central Bank is becoming dangerously over-extended and the whole euro project is unworkable in its current form” .

‘Prof Issing said the euro has been betrayed by politics, lamenting that the experiment went wrong from the beginning and has since degenerated into a fiscal free-for-all that once again masks the festering pathologies…

‘He decries the latest EU plan for a “fiscal entity” in the Five Presidents’ Report, fearing that such move would lead to a rogue plenipotentiary with unbridled powers over sensitive issues of national life, beyond democratic accountability…’

For the previous on David Noakes click Fulfilled Prophecies #13 and #14 – David Noakes ‘Fall of EU’ & Patsy Southway ‘Domino Effect’. Perhaps (unlucky for some) #13 is highly appropriate!!!

Lastly, to keep up to date (and check Allister’s claims) read Jonathan Ely’s round-up of daily Brexit-related news, Why Leave The EU.

Prime Minister placed in position for a purpose

Thank you to ‘Lena’ for this informative guest post from her blog Placed for a Purpose. Let’s not forget that no-one anticipated a radical upheaval in our government bringing the longest-serving Home Secretary in 60 years, Theresa May, to Premiership. Surely the Lord’s hand was in it all:

I was fascinated today because whilst I was observing the news I looked at the name of our current Prime Minister and I felt I should go and check the meaning of it. Google came up with this,

‘Teresa is generally believed to be derived from the Greek ‘therizein’ (to reap, to gather in) and thus takes the definition of “harvester”.’

This is absolutely relevant to us today. There have been many prophecies as of late describing how we are as a nation on the brink of a national harvest. Yet this is not confined only to the UK but will rather be a global in-gathering. So it seems completely un-coincidental that we now have a leader whose name means ‘HARVESTER’. However another definition also came up for ‘Theresa’ whilst I was searching and this one was ‘SUMMER’. I also believe this is no coincidence either.

We have seen our society gradually decaying, the NHS in pieces, education behind other countries, a shocking housing crisis, widespread poverty and I could go on. However, this will come as a reminder, as a message of hope that we will come out of this winter and will enter into summer. We will of course have a spring first, perhaps it will be a cold one as many of them are but nevertheless we will see leaves and flowers start to bud. We will feel perhaps a different warmer kind of breeze and when the sun shines down it will fill you with warmth even if it is but only a moment.

In the end you know without a doubt that you are coming out of winter, there is no going back. Seasons always go in full circle. We can see this by looking at history, for example, the First and Second Great Awakenings. We have had our winter and we have paid the price of hibernating but now it’s time, it’s time to come out of the woodwork. It’s time to just take those small steps outside of your cosy little home and then you will realise that despite the cool air, wind and the rain there are a few flowers budding, the sun is appearing, the days are getting longer and the cold is becoming lesser. So let this be an encouragement to you that as we move into this Kingdom Age we know without a doubt that summer WILL come and we Will have a harvest very soon.

I believe our Prime Minister has been placed there for a purpose to bring about many things that are meant to be. I believe that we will see great improvements. I also believe that you and I were also placed on the earth for a time as this. There are no coincidences in God’s plans.

In emailing me Lena adds: ‘Let’s pray she even comes closer to God in all she does and knows him.’  Amen!

Fulfilled prophecies #17: midnight hour and exposure of apostasy in CoE.

In connection with the fast-approaching Referendum and what was surfacing elsewhere I mused last May Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next the EU?  Only six months later I considered aspects of that passing thought being fulfilled as item #10 (here, here and here).

During last year we also learned about deep corruption within F.I.F.A. and football clubs in the UK, plus issues in the Metropolitan Police.

Earlier this month the EU Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem presented a full report on the problem of corruption across the European Union. The extent of corruption in Europe is “breathtaking” and it costs the EU economy at least 120bn euros (£99bn) annually, according to the European Commission (BBC – thankyou Jonathan Ely at  Why Leave The EU?).

With this in mind could it be just coincidental or is the Lord pointing us to another source of corruption – this time spiritual??

Is the timing of the dream Tony Puccio had of Big Ben striking midnight and of today’s double-posting by Adrian Hilton, aka religio-political blogger Archbishop Cranmer, on Canterbury Cathedral being used for a private Freemasonic service a warning shot from the Lord??  (Read posts with extensive comments here and here – includes a note on my personal deliverance from that vile demonic spirit, even though I hadn’t been a FM!!)
