“Watch With Me” – Neil Mackereth (GPS #51.7)

Featured

The main message of prophetical ‘signals’ #51 received globally a fortnight ago is of the Lord Jesus keeping His focus on our heavenly Father’s purposes. Then on Tuesday, 8th September, I learned what Neil Mackereth has been hearing from the Lord on this.

Moreover, his location of Winchester, Hampshire, confirms his contribution as part of this series of GPS because one ‘signal’ was received in Winchester in Virginia, USA. I’d wanted to comment about it coming from the New World’s city named after King Alfred’s ancient capital of Wessex. Also, the inclusion of both Winchesters confirms my sensing, whilst writing, the spiritual alignment of a ‘Bridge o’r the Pond’ and as relating to my blog on the Mayflower’s voyage 400 years ago and trajectory of 1999’s solar eclipse.

Neil emailed me a week ago today as follows: Continue reading

A humbling confirmation of my encounter with Jesus

Please carefully note this morning’s confirming comment from the antipodean ‘ends of the earth’ (New Zealand) to my Triple Validation of Jesus’ Night-time Visitation.:

Richard,
I have only ever shared this with one person and though she was a religious person was not particularly interested.
I have actually seen the living Jesus with my own eyes.
I won’t go into detail but I’m telling you this because of the picture of Jesus in the clouds with face obscured that you have shared.
When Jesus comes back he will look modern and young. He was around 33 when he died.
People will be amazed by this attractive Jesus. There will be gnashing of teeth but they have missed their opportunity. Jesus is concerned about this. He does not want any to perish.
I hope anyone reading this will take it to heart.
Time is running out.
Praise the I AM.
Alex Alexander

Astonishing! Previous post gets immediate double-confirmation!! (Global Prophecy Signal #50)

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

In republishing Ben Kay’s email in the previous post I couldn’t but conclude, “The Lord is getting our attention – has he got yours?” I wasn’t being flippant, simply stressing it’s well to give our serious consideration to what Ben had not planned on writing!

But I wasn’t prepared for the Lord immediately getting on my caseand doubly so!

It was about a geographical-cum-spiritual aspect I’d sensed – together with a totally unexpected reference by a reader to a hidden, textual attribute behind my reacting to and promoting Ben’s encouragement.

11.8.1999 Solar Eclipse, the ‘Mayflower’ and Bridge o’r Pond

Ben states the total solar eclipse of 11th August 1999, “started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2,000 km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall…”

However, in watching the animated video of its passage and carefully noting the origin and path of the small dot representing the totality of eclipse, I was reminded of a concept I’d started blogging about 44 (11 x 4) months ago – Bridge over ‘The Pond’ – ie. an imaginary, supra-natural bridge linking Britain with North America used by Holy Spirit for delivering the same, or similar, teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the North Atlantic ocean on the same, or next, day.

That sudden beginning of the ‘invisible’ moon’s effect upon the sun during daytime hours brings a brief glimpse into Isiaah 13:10…

For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not give their light;
The sun will be darkened in its going forth,
And the moon will not cause its light to shine.

Let’s take a closer look and analysis of that day’s event, courtesy of Google Maps

NASA/Goddard Flight Centre describes its path: ‘The last total solar eclipse of the 20th century begins in the North Atlantic about 300 km (190 ml) south of Nova Scotia where the Moon’s umbral shadow first touches down on Earth at 09:30:57 UT. Along the sunrise terminator, the maximum duration is a mere 47 seconds as seen from the center of the narrow 49 kilometers-wide path. No major landfall occurs for the first forty minutes as the shadow sweeps across the North Atlantic. The umbra finally reaches the Isles of Scilly off the southwestern coast of England at 10:10 UT (Figure 6 – below)

At this locale, it is already mid-morning with the Sun 45° above the eastern horizon… One minute later (10:11 UT), the umbra arrives along the shores of the Cornwall Peninsula. In the following four minutes, the shadow skirts the southern coast giving eager observers a brief taste of totality. Plymouth, the largest English city in the path, is north of center line and witnesses a total phase lasting 1 minute 39 seconds. London misses the total phase but experiences partiality…By 10:16 UT, the umbra leaves England as it quickly traverses the English Channel…Not since 1961 has the Moon cast its dark shadow upon central Europe…’ (emphases added)

I recall watching it from central Reading, noting the eerie effect of diminished daylight, but now I’m intrigued that the linked illustration could mirror the construction plan of a massive bridge – like Evgeni Denev’s ‘Endless Bridge’ shown above, the three circles shown in Fig 6 representing a bridge’s columnar piers.

North America’s New England and ‘New Scotland’ – all ‘Newly-Found-Land’

The ‘Mayflower’ was the English galleon that transported the first Puritans, known today as the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’, in 1620 from Plymouth (famous for its role in the sighting and defeat of the Spanish Armada) over the Atlantic to the New World. They were Bible-believing, ‘non-conformist’ Christians seeking religious freedom and tolerance far away from both Catholic and Protestant Europe in our American colonies. That event was the birth of a strong Christian bond that has grown between the UK and USA, despite all the differences in church-state relationships and theological emphases.

After a gruelling 10 weeks at sea, the Mayflower’s 102 passengers and crew of about 30 reached America, dropping anchor near the tip of Cape Cod on November 11, 1620. (NB. double number 11 in that arrival date: 11th day of 11th month, 400 years ago!! So maybe it’s of significance (see Footnote 2 of previous post)?

After hitting the ‘publish’ button for the previous post at 17:30 on Tuesday, I visited the post to hit ‘share Facebook’ button and thereby put it on my personal profile.

I was so amazed to note a response got flagged up within minutes, and upon reading the comment I got well and truly ‘God-smacked!’ It was directly related to what I’d sensed! AND from over the ‘Pond’ in Nova Scotia – Maxine Phyllis writes:

“Oh, thank God you posted that. I had forgotten all about it. August 11 was also the date of my wedding thirty years ago and the number 21 has figured prominently in my life. I connect it to the archangel Michael in the book of Daniel – he had to fast 21 days before receiving a visitation from Michael. Also, I was 21 years old when I first met the Lord in a powerful encounter outdoors, after a vehicle accident in the Yukon wilderness of Canada. I was amazed that I was unharmed and simply spoke out into the air ‘God are you there?’ Immediately an answer came and hit me like a lightening bolt – “I Am”. From then until now I’ve heard Him speak to me about Michael, and how Michael is needed to deliver the Church out of the influence of Babylon. Also, it is the archangel Michael who overcomes the devil himself along with the word of our testimonies from those who didn’t shrink back from death (and I would be one). Hallelujah for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns!!”

Some minutes later Maxine commented along similar lines on the actual post itself. BUT what she – and other readers – did not know was her references to Archangel Michael are not only directly relevant but also validate Ben and my personal references to Luke 21:28!

How? Why? Nowhere within Luke’s record of Jesus’ prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem as well as End-time events is there any reference to angelic involvement. But now look fully at my dear mother’s Sunday Missal; of which page 67 only is shown at the close of the previous post for its highlit verse is the reason I immediately reacted to Ben’s quoting Luke 21:28 > >

The preceding page 66 is headed by Pope Leo XIII’s prayer to Michael the Archangel penned after a dread vision of God and satan on 13th October 1884 and the future of the Church. (This page completed the whole liturgy with Latin on left-hand-pages and English on right. Thenceforth, pages show Sundays sequentially in the liturgical year with illustration of the theme of each mass followed by relevant scriptures, as shown.)

NOW BELIEVE ME – I’m hurrying to finish this off for an early start to our weekend but THAT number 66 was also mentioned by Jonathan Hill when writing about number 11, (Footnote 2 of previous refers). Please understand that his following notes are NOT directly related to my above remarks and any anecdotal coincidence or meanings. His knowledge of Hebrew numbers is related purely to the scriptures, as developed in his two seminal books. In this week’s email referred to earlier, Jonathan writes:

“For a deeper understanding of these events, we need to know the biblical meaning of two numbers, the number ‘666’ which is associated with the final anti-Christ in Revelation 13:18 and the number ‘66’ – a less known biblical number. As it happens, the number ‘66’ is associated with ‘forerunner’ anti-Christs of 1 John 2:18 because of the Old Testament character Absalom who is a strong type of the final anti-Christ (because he usurped David’s throne). Absalom is first mentioned in the Bible in 2 Samuel 3:3 and this verse has a numerical value of 666 (Ordinal method). Moreover, the Hebrew name of ‘Absalom’, in this same verse, has a numerical value of ‘66’ Another important reference to ‘66’ in scripture is in 1 John 2:18 where the Greek words ‘even now’, as an adverbial phrase of time (regarding forerunner anti-Christs rising), have a numerical value of ‘66’ (και [20] νυν [46]).

“…11th triangular number is ‘66’ and so ‘11’s and the number ‘66’ are biblical markers concerning events closely preceding the Millennium and forerunner anti-Christs… Two notable forerunner anti-Christs (anti-Semitics and anti-capitalists) were Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden who both died a violent death exactly 66 years apart (to the day).”

Thus, an exceptionally intriguing ‘coincidence’ of a prayer for protection on a page 66.

The Lord’s GPS

Readers know my thoughts on the Lord using His own GPS system, or Global Prophecy Signalling system. This 50th is an excellent example because the eclipse includes the locations of a couple of recipients of His ‘message’ – Ben Kay in Plymouth, Devon, is the first recipient, joint seconds are Jonathan Hill (W Sussex) and myself (E Hants) as I was reading his email about number 11 when Ben’s arrived, and Maxine over ‘The Pond’ in Nova Scotia, Canada, is fourth.

Doesn’t it make you wonder what awesome things are coming our way from the Lord? And perhaps how the 400th Anniversary of arrival of the ‘Mayflower’ in America may be of great significance in His plans???

To Him alone be all the Glory.

‘God-incidence’ of 11 and 21st (3×7) anniversary of solar eclipse – “Look up for your redemption draws nigh!”

Not bothering to note today’s date, my intended online priority after the days morning tasks was to respond to a reference to number 11’s meaning by Jonathan Hill in his weekend email. BUT after opening my in-tray, what then dropped in from Ben Kay in Plymouth ‘God-incidentally’ highlights ’11’!! “ACE, absolutely brill Ben”, I immediately respond in my seeking his permission to copy; and so he puts it into perspective

“Glad that this email has hit the mark. It was interesting how it came about as I had no intention to write all these things until late last night when I sensed the Lord reminding me about the eclipse and prompting me to write an encouragement. It took a few hours but managed to get it sent out this morning thankfully. I meant to be writing… but sensed this interruption to my plans last night were from the Lord so decided to go with the flow…!”

Let’s ‘get in the flow’ of what the Lord’s indicating through Ben, as told under this title from Luke 21:28 (NB 7×3:7×4):

“LOOK UP…FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH!”

Good Morning,

Normally I simply send out dates and information about prayer meetings (such as the next PRAY UK meeting on 22nd August!)

However, this is a simple encouragement to keep pressing on when you may be feeling the pressure of life… to keep on looking up when you might be feeling down…and a reminder that we are held in the palm of the One who holds the whole world in His hands.

‘…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3 vs 12-14)

Last night, I remembered that today is a special anniversary for those in Devon and Cornwall who, 21 years ago today, witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the 1999 solar eclipse.

Indeed, you may have seen the special marker that was placed near Plymouth Hoe (by the cannons on Madeira Road) to remind us of this special moment. It is in the shape of a cross on the pavement.

‘X’ marks the spot where at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of August 1999, the sun was turned to darkness and the moon turned a blood red colour above Plymouth and the surrounding region, and there followed 2 minutes of eerie darkness in the middle of the day, before the light of the sun broke through once again.

As I look back on this day with a sense of awe, I’m reminded of who it is that not only created the earth, the moon and the sun but actually brought them into alignment and scheduled this special moment at the beginning of time. For no solar eclipse randomly happens but each one was timetabled from the moment of creation.

‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”‘ (Genesis 1:14 KJV emphasis mine)

By all accounts (eg. Wikipedia’s Solar Eclipse of 11th August, 1999), this was a special eclipse. This was ‘one of the most-viewed solar eclipses in the whole of human history’ and the first that could be viewed from the UK since 1927.

As illustrated therein, the total eclipse started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2000km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall. Interestingly, the eclipse then went from here to have an impact on the rest of Europe as well as parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia…2 billion people in all!

There are many prophetic words that have been spoken about the region over the years indicating that God is about to do something special. Given that an eclipse can also be defined as an ‘over-shadowing’, perhaps God’s Spirit is brooding and getting ready to bring forth ‘fullness of life’ in this region as expressed in John 10:10’s  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.

Furthermore, perhaps the precise time and direction of the eclipse over Plymouth and the region indicates that an end-time revival of great magnitude is coming that will have an impact on multitudes throughout the nations.

But if life is tough right now, perhaps we just need to hang in there. In the natural, there is much pressure on a baby in the birthing canal just before it is born.

‘We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.’ (2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9 TLB)

God is in control, even though we may feel everything is out of control.

‘and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose’. (Romans 8 v 28)

Not all things are good…but in all things, we trust God is working things out for our good and birthing His purposes and plans in our lives.

When we’re in the thick of it, sometimes it is hard to see the bigger picture.

Perhaps this recent prophetic word from Veronika West entitled, ‘It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is Ticking‘, will serve as an encouragement to ‘look up’ at this time and keep ‘watching and praying’…

Here’s an excerpt from this relatively short word:

‘So stay watching and praying in these days, as the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow upon the threshing floor of the Nations. Listen and pay close attention! Tick, tock, tick, tock…the sound of destiny’s clock can be heard in the realm of the Spirit. Do you hear it? Are you ready? Are you aligned and rightly positioned? Are you walking in time with My Spirit?

Beloved…See! For this is a kairos time…an appointed time in the earth…a time of divine Shifting, Sifting, Scattering and Separation has surely begun…for the Nations at a divine tipping point are now being Shifted…the wheat and the tares are now being Sifted…Yes!…and the demons of hell are now being Scattered and the goats and sheep Nations are now being Separated…Watch! As the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow forth upon the Harvest fields of the Nations…Beloved, Get ready!!

This follows on from a recent dream Veronika West had in June 2020 (Hourglass of End-time Harvest).

Veronika explains, “This dream came with such an urgency of the times and the need to begin to cry out for the nations of the earth who are in the valley of decision. I believe this dream speaks to the 11th hour. A kairos time in the earth. An appointed time of the End-time Harvest!”

The details of the dream and Veronika’s interpretation take a little longer to read than the above prophetic word…but it is well worth reading and reflecting upon.

The dream concludes with the following words:

“Watch and Pray! For but a little while longer the Golden Revolving Door of The Ages and of Eternal Destiny stands open before the nations. As the days of My Grace and Mercy are poured out upon the nations, watch! For the time is here, for the 11th Hour Harvesters will herald the birthing of a new great awakening on the earth!”

Veronika’s dream reminds me of an encounter I had with God after attending a prayer meeting at Plymouth Christian Centre back in 2012. I was left with a clear sense that we’re living in the closing age of time before Jesus returns for His bride.

Read more about this ’11th hour’ encounter HERE in Why ’12am CRY’? and listen-read-watch RT Kendall explain more about ‘What is the Midnight Cry?’.

Anyhow, this has now turned out to be a much longer email than originally envisaged, so I’ll finish here with a couple of verses encouraging us to rouse to the reality of the time we are living in…

‘Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armour of light. (Romans 13 vs 11-12 AMPC)

Every blessing,

Ben Kay

RB Footnotes:
  1. I wrote Ben, “Not only does your Luke 21:28 header tie in with scripture relating to the night Jesus visited me (and thus the First Sunday of Advent, celebrating His Return – as illus. below), but also and in depth, today’s date of 11th ties in with the details of an email I want to reply to later after returning home.”
  2. Jonathan Hill, author of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, remarks in his recent email upon the Biblical meanings numbers ‘11’ and ‘12’: ‘The number ‘12’ represents the governmental perfection of Israel in the Millennium (12 tribes of Israel etc.). Number ‘11’ precedes ‘12’ and speaks of ‘anticipation’ of Millennium. As part of the Biblical Watch, ‘11’s appearing in global events/signs before the upcoming Millennium may, therefore, be part of this anticipation and signify events which closely precede the Millennium. The 11th hour warning of Armistice Day 1918 (11th hour of 11th day of 11th month) is one such sign’.’
  3. In referring to ’11’ and ’12’ Jonathan has ‘God-incidentally’ connected into Ben’s message on today’s date of 11th as 21st anniversary of the solar equinox at Plymouth – as well as into his calling at 11th hour on 7.9.2012 (see 12am Cry). (Also, 21 = 7 x 3.)
  4. And just as intriguing: I find yesterday’s total number of views on this website is two twelves, ie 1,212. MOREOVER, ‘two twelve’ was the number of my childhood home where that Visitation in 1989 was located!

CONCLUSION: THE LORD IS GETTING OUR ATTENTION – HAS HE GOT YOURS?

PS: Two ‘GPS’ confirmations were immediately received, as recounted here.

How to Look for Signs of Jesus Christ’s Return

Whilst singing the Noel Richards’ chorus “Come Lord Jesus” in a meeting, my wife was noticeably touched by the Holy Spirit and heard, “It’s sooner than you think!”. I submit, therefore, the importance of revisiting this blog’s strap-line ‘Looking for signs of Jesus’ return‘ and of being sure we really do know ‘how to look’ for Jesus’ Second Coming.

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 2

Another response to testing my ‘insight’ comes from Neil Mackereth, whose writings I’ve featured on this blog. Notably, he adds this PS to his reply: “I am having difficulty with formatting on this email, which has happened in the past, but only when I “go where angels fear to tread”.

Neil attaches this briefing to a follow-on email of 25th July: 

‘Dear Richard, Very interesting and you certainly got me thinking! Here are my notes – I can see real relevance in the maRk and maSk insight you have had and will continue pondering on the significance!

THE MARK OF ‘IMMUNITY’ – or is it ‘ALLEGIANCE’? 

‘As a result of an insight Richard Barker had from the Lord about the one (adjacent) letter change between maRk and maSk I started thinking about links between marks and masks. There are positive “marks” as well as negative “marks”:

Positive:

‘Ezekiel 9:4 “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”

‘Revelation 7:3-4 ““Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.”

‘Revelation 9:4 “They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.”

Negative:

‘Revelation 13:16-18 “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e] That number is 666.”

MASKS AND BEING AWARE

‘Thinking about being aware of the underlying significance behind receiving a mark, or the meaning being masked (hidden) to the recipient, put me in mind of Freemasonry and the initiation ceremony, where the candidate is masked. The French for mask is ‘masque’, from which we get masquerade. Pretence and deception, as expressed by Paul in 2:13-15For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”

‘Revelation 13:14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honour of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

‘I believe the mark mentioned at Revelation 13:16 is a sign of allegiance to the Anti-Christ but, as in Freemasonry, its true meaning may be masked. I also believe that the allegiance (which may be unwittingly given) is expressed by a symbolic mark relating to a disfigurement.

‘Revelation 13:3 “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.”

‘Zechariah 11:16-17 “For I am going to raise up a shepherd over the land who will not care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy, but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hooves.

“Woe to the worthless shepherd,
    who deserts the flock!
May the sword strike his arm and his right eye!
    May his arm be completely withered,
    his right eye totally blinded!”

HOW MIGHT WE BE HOODWINKED?

‘There will be a vaccine and, for seemingly very sensible reasons, people will be encouraged to have an identifying mark (like a tattoo) to show their immunity.

‘In the early stages of “normalisation”, retail outlets (shops, pubs, restaurants etc.) will be able to relax social distancing and mask restrictions, for those who can show that they have been vaccinated (i.e. have the mark of immunity). It will be very difficult to have different rules for the relatively few people (the unreasonable ones) who have declined to have the vaccination, and/or the identifying mark.

‘By a series of ostensibly very reasonable steps, it will become well-nigh impossible for the “unreasonable ones” to shop, travel on any form of public transport (planes, buses, boats and trains), use the NHS, and so on.

‘If being vaccinated is conditional on having some sort of mark, great care will be needed in assessing the appropriateness, in light of God’s guidance on the subject (Revelation 13).

CONCLUSION

‘I am convinced that Richard Barker’s insight aligns with the growing wealth of End-Times information and indicators that the Lord is graciously providing. We must do our utmost to encourage awareness of the significance of the events in relation to Biblical End-Times prophecy.’

================

3rd Reviewer

Another respected author responds, “I’m taken with the imagery you have presented of masks as they relate to the forehead in conjunction with the requirement for cashless payment in these times. This is strikingly symbolic of the future harsh reality of the mark of the beast in the Tribulation and is another symbol (like the pestilence of Covid) which is a sign in the ‘beginning of sorrows’ of Matthew 24:7 which point towards a future time in the Tribulation when the anti-type of these signs will be much worse. (eg. a mask and a contactless credit card is nothing like as bad as the future ‘mark of the beast’)”

He can follow the symbolism in the piece and wisely advises me to find a firmer anchor in scripture. In my available time and with the theological principle of 1st mention in scripture in mind I consulted Strongs’ Concordance. First mention of ‘mark’ is at Gen 4:17 where the Lord puts a mark on Cain to protect him from revenge attack. It wasn’t easy to find ‘mask’ in Strong’s as it uses the King James Bible, but ‘covering’ appears in Gen 8:13 where Noah removes the covering over the ark after the rains have ceased.

Then along came Neil’s thoughts, and another reviewer kindly drew my attention to an in-depth analysis by someone familiar with Hebrew, and which is republished here.

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 1

This topic is rarely covered because I despise the enemy of our souls and its demonic influences. Hence, my not blogging on this for 5 years 5 months since the mini-series that began with musing upon a devilish plot to avoid the Lake of Fire. Now, another inkling dropped into mind last week and which I submitted to a few friends for weighing. I was surprised, therefore, to receive unexpected confirmation from other sources in UK, USA and New Zealand (reader Alex’s comment), as posted on Saturday.

Therefore, this isn’t for Britain alone, as I’d thought, but is globally relevant too. So let me expand upon the brief outline given in my personal appeal; Wake Up Church! 

NB: In all this please note I’m NOT saying or implying any of the Prime Minister’s or government’s decisions are directed by the demonic; only that they may be to satan’s advantage and thus benefit its ultimate agenda. 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father I ask you to protect each one of my brethren in Jesus Christ reading this by His holy sinless blood; also that access rights the demonic may have are thus rendered null and void. (I’d prepared this for publication a few days ago but awoke with excruciating hip pain on Tuesday that necessitates resting. A prophetical pastor who’s praying for me confirmed my suspicion of it being a demonic attack.)

MASK / MARK OF THE BEAST

Trying to return to sleep after waking early on Saturday 18th July I was suddenly struck by: ‘WE’RE ONLY 1 LETTER AWAY FROM THE MARK OF THE BEAST – WAKE UP CHURCH!’ (maSk…maRk)

That is, we need to realise that compulsory wearing of masks in public is a trial-run, or testing, the progress and outcome of which will inform and lead into the imposition of the infamous Mark of the Beast. It is a softening up and preparing the global population for such an eventuality, as foretold in the Book of Revelation. Therefore, it is increasingly important for Christian leaders to teach about being prepared for the End-Times.

Click to read ScriptureForAll Hebrew Interlinear Bible

[‘He – the Beast from the Sea – causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’ NKJV Rev 13:16-17]

Upon recalling the gist of Revelation chapter 13, it dawned upon me we’re not only ‘one letter’ but also ‘one inch’ away from carrying the full marking, or ‘carved-effect’ (original Greek). The new legal requirement from last Friday imposes a mandatory restriction upon anyone wanting to go shopping and buy anything that focuses not only upon a person’s mask, thereby highlighting their forehead and eyes – its edge being on the bridge of their nose, is an inch below the forehead – but also upon waving a hand in order to buy without handing over cash or cheque, or tapping one’s own private code.

Note two salient points:
  • This Jewish year 5780 is that of Hebrew letter ‘pey’, symbolising the ‘mouth’ and its method of communicating: eg in praise and worship the Lord.
  • the spirit that works in the ‘sons of disobedience’ is also ‘prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2).

Hence, the significance of events focusing upon the effects of everyone’s breathing!!!! AND the poison spewed out in mainstream media headlines and opinions that curses the nation!

Next, it occurred to me this is the 7th instance of this topic cropping up recently through unconnected events.

And they appeared as two lots of triplets!  The first 3 centered on a Friday, as told in End-Times Briefing 13; the second 3 arrived on a Monday (government’s muddle, data from White House author, top Hong Kong lab’s whistle-blower). Moreover, I came under a Jezebelic attack, which the Lord countered by more data. You may recall this blog gives copious examples of ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ arriving like ‘GPS’ (global prophecy signals). The two confirmations mentioned above are the latest example.

Theological Perspectives

I ask that we lay aside any personal, doctrinal preferences when reading Revelation because there’s EIGHT theological interpretations of this profound book, as summarised in my study Bible. Let’s not, therefore, be too dogmatic in assessing my remarks. In my humble opinion, the Lord may permit the imprecision in order to ‘play His cards close to His chest’, keeping the adversary in the dark.  Therefore, if we adhere to a dogmatic ‘timetable’ then satan’s strategy could blindside us by imposing the Mark by nefarious means and catch us in its snare unawares.

Our adversary would want to prevent any possibility of a global Revival and harvesting of souls by getting peoples’ unwitting allegiance to its schemes and thus consequential damnation!  Heaven’s reaping would rob hell of its harvest of humans!!

With reference to my recent Briefings, Jane H asks: “Regarding the mark of the beast surely this will not proceed revival will it?  How can we spread the gospel to anyone having the mark?”

Clearly, Jane has Rev 14:9-11 in mind and which clearly implies those with this Mark are owned by satan, and thus share in its decreed doom. These dread scriptures foretell no possibility of changing allegiance away from satan in this event. However, it may be possible for those who didn’t take the Mark to be saved during an individual’s ‘revival’.

Some may argue the Mark of the Beast won’t apply to the Church because we will have been raptured into heaven (‘snatched up’ – 1 Thess 4:17) before its introduction: ie. the Mark is imposed during the 7-year Great Tribulation. I find, however, scripture does not unequivocally support that view – for example:

  • Rev 12:17 – And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
  • Rev 13:7 – It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.
  • Rev 14:12 – Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on’,”
  • Rev 15:2 – And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

Dr David Pawson’s Opinion

In his overview of the epic story of God’s relationship with His people,  world-renowned Bible teacher David Pawson ‘unlocks’ The Apocalypse in 200 pages distilled from a ‘lifetime’s worth of insights’.:

Chapters 6-16…’are relevant to all believers, whatever their contemporary situation…The main motive for preparing to be faithful under pressure is to be able to face Him without shame. Perhaps that explains the reminder inserted between the 6th and 7th bowls of wrath (incidentally, confirming some Christians will still be on earth at the time): “Behold I come like a thief!…” (Rev 16:15…)

An Informed Reaction:

One reviewer’s response:

“The LORD has set you as a voice, to blow the trumpet and get The WORD out. Absolutely; we are seeing the governmental systems and structure of the beast trying to shape out in a more vicious form in the earth. Many political leaders of nations do not know what they stand against; some decisions that they implement are not theirs; if the grounds are lost in the spirit by The Church and the enemy gains a right to impose a sentence; the governments over nations can wield little or no power of resistance. We must realize that when we also pray and gain victories in the spirit; the leadership of nations will have the power to resist the already established victories in heaven. Things are shaping out; the direction of the dance moves that policies reflect shows us what grounds must be contended for to be regained in the spirit. The antichrist is more than a person taking up an office; it’s major stronghold will be the system it sets up; rather than who becomes the figurehead”

Important 2 years ago; MORE SO NOW! – Chris G Bennett

This morning Chris republished on Facebook a highly suitable follow-on to my recent End-Times Briefings and personal appeal to all Christians to “Wake up!”:

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – July 2018!!!   EVEN CLOSER NOW !!!!

There’s some things going down at the moment that we should ALL note and pray about. SIGNS OF THE TIMES have never been so obvious. Never before in such plain sight.

Earthquakes, fires, drought and flood, evil being called good, and good being persecuted as evil. The list goes on and we haven’t even started on wars, rumours of wars, swamp draining, and political shenanigans.

I really have only one message today – WAKE UP !!!

WAKE UP CHURCH

WAKE UP PEOPLE OF GOD

WAKE UP CHRISTIANS

The SIGNS OF THE TIMES say that the LORD IS COMING SOON. Hear the words of the Lord for today.

“IT IS TIME FOR JOY!! I AM COMING SOON!, says the Lord.

“IT IS TIME FOR ALL MY PEOPLE TO PREPARE. PERSECUTION MAY COME – BE JOYFUL. WARS, FLOODS, FIRES, AND EARTHQUAKES MAY COME – BE JOYFUL BECAUSE THE TIME OF MY COMING IS SOON. I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS FOR THIS SEASON. SEEDS OF REJOICING, SEEDS OF COMPASSION, SEEDS OF LOVE. BUT MOST OF ALL I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS OF HUNGER – SEEDS THAT WILL BURST INTO LIFE AS SOON AS THEY ARE WATERED BY MY PRESENCE.”

“BE PREPARED!”, says the Lord, “FOR I COME WITH JOYFUL CELEBRATION. DANCING AND SINGING SHALL BE A SIGN FOR YOU. THEN SHALL COME MIRACLES, HEALING, AND RELEASE. ALL THIS SHALL BE FOLLOWED BY THE SOUND OF WEEPING, JOYFUL WEEPING IN MY PRESENCE, AS MY GLORY FALLS ON YOUR MEETINGS – IN CHURCH AND ON THE STREETS!” says the Lord.

“I AM COMING SOON!” says the Lord God Almighty

CGB 2020

For such a time as this, read ‘The Manual’ – Neil Mackereth

Neil writes to me, “The imminence of a great move of God, followed by the rapid fulfilment of End-Times prophecy, is burgeoning.

“The spirit of lawlessness is prowling around while the silent majority cower in face of the onslaught from “identity” groups that have been infiltrated by vociferous and aggressive anarchists. To be expected, but disturbing nevertheless. We are on the cusp of a new order! I attach one page of recent pondering:”

A TIME SUCH AS THIS

‘I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, “Make straight the way for the Lord”.’ Isaiah 40:3

(Words repeated by John the Baptist – John 1:23)

We are blessed to live in the most amazing times: Israel is re-established as a Nation; and shaking, sifting and repositioning is in full swing across the globe.

We’re witnessing the preparation for the fulfilment of those Bible prophecies that relate to the End-Times. However, millions of people cannot be bothered to read ‘the manual’.

Furthermore, most people prefer to ignore any guidance on the subject, and even many Christians are not keen on reading anything longer than one side of A4.

So, “in a nutshell”, we are in a “wilderness time” during this pandemic, moving from one set of circumstances to something new. There are both blessing and very difficult times ahead; after which, Jesus will return to defeat His enemies and take His Throne.

In the meantime, should we seek to keep our heads down and say nothing? Certainly not, God has graciously chosen that we should be here “for a time such as this” (Esther 4:14). And as Jesus said: “…. what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.” (John 12:27).

The time of allowing the wheat and the tares to grow together is about to end: the harvest of separation is imminent. “Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.” (John 12:31) Time is very short!

Choices – Imminent Blessing and Imminent Danger

A mighty move of the Holy Spirit is coming: an unprecedented revival that will be of a magnitude and design that the world has never seen before. It will be the last opportunity to repent and follow Jesus.

This revival will infuriate Satan who will “Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war” (Shakespeare – Julius Caesar). We will enter a period of great chaos and confusion, danger and despair (as in the Days of Noah). Many will crave order and leadership, albeit still on their own terms, which the Anti-Christ will then seem to provide.

Prevailing Conditions – from my readings of End-Times scripture over the years:

I couldn’t envisage conditions where a New World Order would be welcomed – Now I can!

I couldn’t see how it would be possible to introduce a “one world” Government – Now I can!

I couldn’t see how it would be possible to introduce a global economic system – Now I can!

I couldn’t see how it would be possible to introduce a “one world” religion – Now I can!

I couldn’t see how it would seem sensible to take mark on hand or forehead – Now I can!

Read ‘The Manual’ –  Watch and Pray

The signs converge, the culmination is nigh. Watch for talk of a New World Order, watch for a worldwide roll-out of a vaccine, watch for an expansion of world financial controls, watch for moves to unify religions, watch for even greater disapprobation against Israel. Read End-Times scripture.

Pray for hidden things to be revealed. Remember that all things that are foretold in the Word of God will be fulfilled.

Pray in line with God’s purposes and for the maximum number possible to be saved out of the Tribulation.

Pray for a mighty awakening.

End-Times Briefing 14: Book of Revelation’s importance – 10 key points

In his third annexure to Simplicity, Neil Mackereth asks and points out:

WHY IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION SO IMPORTANT?
10 KEY POINTS

1. It is the Culmination of The Bible Story. The denouement.
Could you imagine the Bible ending with the one-chapter book of Jude?

2. It Shows Jesus in His glory – As King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
So awesome that even His close friend John fell on his face as if dead when he saw Jesus. We know Jesus as prophet, teacher, priest, healer and so on – but here we see Him in all His glory.

3. It Provides Knowledge: to Defeat Misinformation. A challenge to false prophets and false doctrine.

4. It Provides Knowledge: to Help us Understand World Events. Revelation shows that God foreknew, He is in control, and His plan will not be thwarted.
Current events: Israel, 1948 and following; moves towards a new world order – a world economic system and a world governmental system.

5. It Provides Knowledge: to help us be pathfinder guides and watchmen for Israel.

6. It is a Basis for Evangelism.
It is my contention that the incredible significance and glorious wonder of so much fulfilled prophecy in the Bible, is so “undersold” that it indicates the church has been duped into veiling parts of the Word of God Any other prophetic book that was so absolutely accurate over so many events over such a long period of time, would be hailed and revered in awe and wonder by the secular world.

7. An antidote to complacency.
We now know enough to not be caught unawares.

8. Future Focus: it prepares us for what lies ahead.
Revelation tells us more about our eternal home and condition, rather than our current temporary state – more about the significance and urgency of the choice we, and all people, need to make.

9. Worship.
A book full of worship, and how to worship – 11 major songs that have inspired a multitude of hymns and choral works, songs etc.

10. Because God tells us it is Special!
It is the only book in the Bible that blesses the reader and the hearer (Rev 1:3) John wrote it as he saw it and heard it, which may account for its unusual style – he was continually being reminded to write down what he saw and heard, and then told not to change it! – Reveleation 22:18-19.

End-Times Briefing 13: triple ‘God-incidence’ re. contactless payments & Mark of the Beast

Puzzle In Sky by Idea Go, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.com

As if by coincidence, a week ago today three people alerted me separately to ‘the Mark of the Beast,’ as in the 13th chapter of The Book of Revelation, as herein:

The Beast from the Earth

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives [f]those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no-one may buy or sell except one who has [g]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. [NKJV courtesy BibleGateway.com – the Greek is particularly illuminating on ’emblem of the hand’: click image to read in full.]

1st GOD-INCIDENCE

Friday 26th June was the latter half of 24 hours of fasting to finish a week of prayer held by our church. I limited my drinks to tea or coffee and didn’t have any accompanying ‘yummies’! Therefore, this unusual when joining a couple for a chat over morning coffee at Petersfield Heath. It was their first time near others since the start of lockdown three months ago.

For several weeks the outdoor cafe has opened on certain days to serve take-away drinks, subject to ‘socially distanced’ queuing and not handling items, such as cash, for the good of the staff’s health. So, it’s ‘contactless payments only’. We’ve known the manager since the cafe first opened and my card is not enabled for such payments, so they allow me to pay by tapping my PIN whilst wearing one of their disposable gloves.

Last Friday, the manager took orders and asked if I don’t use contactless on principle, so I answered “Yes”. He said local Environmental Health officials are instructing businesses to reopen by following his method of accepting money. That is, local firms are now encouraged not to accept any cash, thus avoiding the risk of Covid-19 virus, and move entirely to payments enabled by a digital personal number – as foretold in Revelation 13!

2nd GOD-INCIDENCE

That evening Neil Mackereth emailed me a new article in which he quotes those verses in connection with a vaccination programme against the Covid-19 virus. The pertinent part coinciding with what I’d heard that morning, reads:

“Everyone will be encouraged to have the vaccination and, for seemingly very sensible reasons, to have an identifying mark (like a tattoo) to show their immunity.
In the early stages of “normalisation”, retail outlets (shops, pubs, restaurants etc.) will be able to relax social distancing restrictions, for those who can show that they have been vaccinated (i.e. have the mark of immunity)…I am not suggesting that it will be inappropriate to have the vaccination. However, if it is conditional on having some sort of mark, great care will be needed in assessing the appropriateness, in light of God’s guidance on the subject. (see Revelation 13:16-18).”

3rd GOD-INCIDENCE

Also, on Friday my phone alerted me to a YouTube video prophet Tomi Arayomi had issued the previous day in which he divulges a dream about lockdown of markets relating to the implantation of radio-frequency identification (RFID) micro-chips. He also brings an important prophetic word for the Church in these days.
In my humble opinion this video is essential viewing! It is most important that we know about such matters because they are directly relevant to End-Times and clearly indicate we’re now there..!!

No wonder I’m ‘God-smacked’ over what the Lord brought to my attention 7 days ago!

“By the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established” (Deuteronomy 19:15)

‘Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said’ (1 Corinthinans 14:29)
