A prophetic word on the coming ‘bowls of the fury of God’

Now that Facebook can at last connect this blog’s Fb page with my previously unused personal profile, I’ve been pinning a few of its posts and hubs to its ‘wall’ or timeline by way of an intro’ to my writing upon Biblical and contemporary Christian prophecy.

Doing that reminded me of the difference between ancient and modern prophecy, which after due weighing and testing, provides a means of hearing from God before we arrive at the End-times foretold in scripture. Therefore, I mused upon when and how those two modes of hearing Him will converge in the run-up to the Millennium, when Jesus Christ returns bodily to reign and rule on earth. 

AND “Lo and Behold!” within a couple of days I get an email on that very subject and which reads as follows:

THE PREPARATION OF

THE THINGS TO COME

PROPHECY

Given to Leisa Ebere, April 8, 2019

“I say to you My People, that there is a stirring in the spirit realm where an open door of ‘the preparation of the things to come’ shows a glimpse of the rumblings of the Earth in this hour. As mentioned in My Word, in Revelation 16, through the actions of the inhabitants of the Earth,” says the Lord, “the unfolding and signposts of My Wrath come to be. For My judgement only comes as I give mankind over to their own sin; and then the days grow dark with evil, and the signs of destruction reveal themselves throughout the Land, Seas and Waterways.

“But I declare to you, My Remnant, that you shall be protected from this destruction, as you cry out to Me, for My purposes are yet to be fulfilled; as the redemption and harvest of the blind and the lost reaches momentum by My Spirit. As in the Seven Bowls of Judgement,” says the Lord, “MRSA has become a global issue, as this deadly bacteria has covered the earth and caused great pain and suffering,” says the Lord.

“Also, as with the Second Bowl,” says the Lord, “a bloodying of the oceans has occurred, and Red Tide Events are even now escalating across the waters of the Earth as the Algae’s poisons release devastating toxins into the seas.

“And just like the Third Bowl, the Earth’s Rivers and Streams have become contaminated with chemicals,” says the Lord.

“And similarly as with the Fourth Bowl,” says the Lord, “I have allowed an intense heat to scorch the Earth due to climate change and emissions of chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere; and this has caused great groaning and fear amongst the inhabitants of the Earth.

“In regards to the similarities of the Fifth Bowl,” says the Lord, “there is judgement being poured out onto America, as the positioning of high officials over the land and weather phenomena will cause economic downtown and darkness to come upon that country. This is due to the sinful actions of greed and callousness amongst its inhabitants.

“And also, like the Sixth Bowl being poured out; there is judgement being allowed to come upon the UK and Europe, due to pharisaical mindsets and perversity and uncleanness, as Eastern Kings (Arab Nations) have brought idolatry and terror upon many countries. This has caused the principalities of Witchcraft, Rebellion and Deception to conspire against the peoples of the Earth,” says God. “And like the outpouring of the 7th Bowl. a number of earthquakes and the falling of hailstones has begun to transpire in earnest upon the Earth.

“Beloved, I am slow to anger,” says the Lord, “but the darkness which has been caused by man’s sin has opened up the manifestation of such things. But I will stay the full execution of these judgements as My People bring a mighty harvest into My Kingdom, in the next seven seasons of My Spirit,” says the Lord. “Yet, I declare to you, that all arguing and divisions in the Body of Christ must be set aside,” says the Lord of Hosts, “and all focus must be set upon establishing My Righteousness, as My Glory brings about the Harvest of the Lost upon the Earth. Heed My Words for the time grows short,” says the Living God, “and your eyes must be fixed upon Me.

Schematic of the World as ‘Mystery Babylon’ in the End-Times; Mark Davidson

Mark brings a most fascinating, eschatological perspective of our times:

The purpose of this post is to describe how the entire world may be set up for the end times, based on the findings from chiastics in Chronicles of the End Times. This post is not saying what will happen, but what might happen, based on this chiastic study. The diagram presented here will be […]

10 years ago: ‘time-bomb’ in my Bible blew up in my face!

Wanting to verify Peter’s grousing about John’s grasp of Jesus’ parable ‘the wheat and tares’, I grabbed my Bible to look at the Gospel of Matthew…BUT IT BLEW UP IN MY FACE! – metaphorically, that is.

I’d opened it many times before without that ever happening. Had someone sneaked into the house overnight, cut and scooped out the inside of my thick tome and put a pressure-sensitive stick of spiritual dynamite inside?? Or, had some clever being, the Holy Spirit even, already known when I’d be checking on a topic that’s churning around within my mind – a specific simile on the Kingdom of God – and arranged for me to be zapped at that precise instant?

This time upon opening it, however, a supernatural flash exploded within my mind. It didn’t go >>BANG<<  but EXCITEMENT EXPLODED within my spirit as I heard,

“THIS  IS  ALL  ABOUT  TO  BE  FULFILLED!”

That unforgettable, formative event had its origin in 2008’s controversial ‘outpouring’ led by Todd Bentley at Lakeland, Florida. We’d known of him from a few years earlier and had attended an inspiring conference in Dudley where he’d taught in depth on the Holy Spirit as he energetically motored through the Bible for over 10 hours daily!  However, in 2008 he allowed personal sin to overtake him and thus stumbled from grace; but ‘good Samaritan’ Rick Joyner came alongside to direct and assist in his restoration. A part of the problem was Todd’s failure to be accountable, despite the efforts of his Canadian church’s leadership.

At that time Peter Horrobin, director of Ellel Ministries, was staunchly opposed to what was happening and the ‘lassez-faire’ (my term) attitude of N. American churches’  top leaders. John Arnott of Toronto was of the opinion the Lord would deal with it, as may be inferred from the parable of the wheat and tares – but Peter firmly disagreed with such a flimsy handle on an important part of pastoral and spiritual oversight.

On top of that controversy I’d been noticing since the attack eight years earlier on the twin towers in New York a few things happening that were biblically related. So, after my inner explosion I began taking those things more seriously and realised the need for more Christians to become aware of the prophetical implications of scripture.

Therefore on 28th February 2009, 10 years ago today, I emailed friends and the church leaders whom I knew personally, as follows:

THE ENDGAME IS NOW IN PLAY

‘Dear Friends – further to Rev’d Bill Smith’s recent request re Christian Freedom, may I offer some observations upon our times and, in another message, suggest a way forward?

‘Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt13:36). So I went to check scripture but upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW!!

‘Hence, my previous remarks about a sifting of the Church – in preparation for a rapid ‘sHifting’? Jesus urged His disciples to look out for and observe signs of the times. Regarding their questions about His return at the end of this Age, the earliest Gospel account has Jesus stressing 7 times, Watch…be alert…on your guard (Mark 13). Matthew 24 reports Jesus saying 4 times, Watch…and when you see…” followed by the parables of the burglar and of the virgins:> “Don’t be caught napping!” [Is the Church still asleep?] Luke’s account has, “Be always on the watch…” (ch21:36) and chpt 12 (NIV) has sections on watchfulness and interpreting the times. In each Gospel Jesus commands, Learn the lesson of the fig tree…”. Also, the Apostles went on to give more indicators (Acts 3:20-1, Hebrews 12:26-7, 2 Peter 3, 2 Timothy 3 and the first and second letters to the Thessalonians).

‘Have you studied or read/heard/given any teaching on this topic lately? So, let’s watch closely what’s happening here and globally…’

That two-part email continued by drawing attention to:
  • case of a nurse who was sacked for praying for patient. We took exception to this and wrote to N.Somerset PCT saying so pleased their policy wasn’t in effect when Nina was fighting for her life when no doctor was present to perform tracheotomy! (A nurse who was there only for that night (!) asked her if she could pray for her. She did so in tongues and Nina’s throat immediately opened; she became calm and at peace, as verified on her monitor’s read-out.)
  • tyrannical tool of intolerance: equality and diversity – MI5 director warns of ‘sleepwalking into police state’ – lawlessness within society and authorities…
  • note verses in Revelation, chapters 1-3Rev 21:7 and Luke 12.
  • take a stand per Ephesians 6:10-20, shocking open vision of Britain torn apart!
  • 2009 UK Prophetic Council – prepare to rule and reign – Luke 12 warnings
  • ICEJ meeting Southampton – overcomers, the Lion of Judah and His lions!

THUS, began my calling to write on the relevance of Bible and contemporary prophecy to current events, and the next month’s double-email Not Many People Know referred to the EU’s 666 connection!

This was soon followed by a confirmation whilst attending a school on prophecy on 21st May 2009 at Winchester Vineyard church and led by internationally renowned teacher Isabel Allum.

Isabel was led to prophesy for individuals in the audience. Walking straight up to the two of us, she discerned for me, “An impartation like Daniel had is going to come into you and you will start understanding the ‘riddles’ of the Lord in a different way – the gift of interpretation itself as Daniel and Joseph had is going to come to you and God is going to open up your understanding to hear from heaven.”

As my writing started soon after Barack Obama’s inauguration as President of the USA, many of my emails would cover his involvement in the Middle-East (see Obama’s Cairo SpeechEurope and Two Daniels…).

Therefore, I was encouraged to continue writing a couple or so emails a month until, by mid-2011, I was getting distinct ‘digs in the ribs’ to circulate to a far wider audience. The dream of seeing and realising the Kingdom is being set up in Britain, as told here, made me determined to deliver on those ‘nudges’ by launching this blog with some trepidation on 21st November 2011.

What had, however, had first piqued my curiosity in Bible prophecy and End-times as an anti-Christian was my reading a secular book in mid-1980s about the convergence of Jewish, Christian and Islamic calendars with historical events in the Holy Land and Jerusalem.  ‘Coincidentally’, what was showing on TV of elite units of Iranian and Iraqi armies rehearsing the liberation of Jerusalem (despite their being at war!!) plugged straight into what I noticed whilst I was flicking through The Invisible Hand.

Since starting this blog time I’ve noted the increasing incidence of those ‘Gog-Magog’ events, even an impediment over the blog’s second anniversary to writing about Iran! To read about Bible-related current events see Bible Updates tag (note: not exhaustive).

TODAY’S RELEVANCE OF THE BIBLE

In addition to the increasing prophetical focus this year on the wheat and tares parable, as in the previous post, we’re now, 10 years after my having that revelation, watching the direct relevance of the Bible’s predictions in everybody’s everyday life!  It predicts precisely what happens today when – of all things – people go shopping!

That is, the Holy Bible states in writing that, instead of handing over cash to buy goods, people will be waving their hands, or some indicative marking they’re got in or on their hands!  In other words, contactless payments – the cashless society!

Check it for yourself in the Book of Revelation: ‘no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of the beast on their right hand’ (Rev 13:17).

However, as the main part of that book after the first three chapters is highly symbolical then we’re not necessarily talking about a specific sign on a person’s hand or forehead. To consider this further you may like to read whether the ‘mark of the beast’ is a spiritual sign, as claimed in RFID, Technology and The Mark. (NB. End-Times Prophecy is 7th Day Adventist website which I’ve yet to check in any depth.)

Paul Keith Davis: attaining to The Age To Come

Further to the recent posts about our preparation as the Bride of Christ to rule in His Millennial reign over all nations upon earth, Paul Keith Davis’ latest video on modelling ‘The Age To Come’ is well worth studious attention:

In view of the prophetic command he’d given (herein), and others’ expectation of whom I’m aware, his early remarks on how that Age may be achieved is especially noteworthy.

The depth of Paul Keith’s expertise in post-Reformation, especially 20th Century, Church history aids his thesis – or prophetical insight – on the new, radical move of the Holy Spirit that’s prophesied by many, as in several recent posts herein relating to the vision Smith-Wigglesworth had of His moving across our land. PK says the Lord has given a measure of clarity on what The Age To Come will look like, maybe even in the next decade or so.

About a year ago, the Lord told him many of us have been arriving at, and are already making, decisions that will dictate the course of our lives until that Age’s appearance. Also, PK has previously referred to 20th Century leaders whom the Lord has used as forerunners to demonstrate what this Age will be like.

He refers to the Lord having brought changes to His Church through the Reformation and subsequent moves and outpourings His Spirit through theologians and evangelists, and the major breakthrough within Pentecostal churches. These brought an improved understanding of the scriptures with fresh, deeper revelations.

He believes there is yet one more major outpouring to come very soon that will bring a fuller Reformation as the Lord builds His people into the full manifestation of His Bride to rule with Him upon His return to reign for one thousand years.

This new Reformation will be the revelation of mysteries and revelations within the Heart of God and fulfillment of 1 Corinthians 2:9.

Very exciting teaching, so set aside 22 minutes to listen and contemplate, especially one of the most striking promises made to disciples at Luke 20:34-36 about being kept alive and found worthy to attain and taste the powers of the Age to Come (Hebrews 6:1-6). Paul Keith brings essential teaching to prepare us for serving the Lord in the coming days:

22 biblically-related news headlines in one week!

Within days of New Year’s Day seven years ago I introduced this blog’s first readers to the Watcher in The White House, accredited Christian journalist William Koenig, in Points to Ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles. It was the first of occasional sorties into the nature of Time and the Bible, now collated in this hub – Time: a Primer.

In last Friday’s Eye View from the White House Bill opens his weekly report with…

“22 significant new events that happened this week – This has been an amazing week of prophetic significance with continued final-day alignment activities” and briefly reports upon activities and then enumerates the events as follows:

“The following are news articles that are prophetically significant. Below the news is insight and information regarding Secretary Pompeo’s trip and more news.

  1. Turkey and the Kurds turn to Russia to solve problems sparked by U.S. exit from Syria – Washington Post
  2. Putin and Erdogan agree to hold talks soon, but exact date is not determined – Kremlin – Tass
  3. Erdogan calls for joint Turkish-Russian-Iranian control of US pullout from Syria in face of Moscow’s veto – Debka
  4. Bolton says U.S. Withdrawal from Syria is conditional: National security adviser says pullout depends on assurances Turkey will protect America’s Kurdish allies – Wall Street Journal
  5. Turkey’s Erdogan refuses Bolton meeting, slams Syria withdrawal shift – Axios
  6. Bolton warns Syria not to use chemical weapons – Wall Street Journal
  7. Trump prepared to ‘unleash fury’ on Syria, Pompeo says – Jerusalem Post
  8. Pompeo promises ‘every last Iranian boot’ will be expelled from Syria – Times of Israel
  9. Pompeo hopes to establish coalition consisting of GCC states, Egypt and Jordan Al Arabiya
  10. Iran’s supreme leader calls US officials ‘idiots,’ but hints sanctions hurting – Times of Israel
  11. Iran’s Zarif on Pompeo: U.S. brings chaos where it interferes – Reuters
  12. US to convene global summit on Iran February 13-14 – Times of Israel
  13. US Navy Update: 11 carrier strike groups and 9 amphibious ready groups; five groups deployed and 15 in US ports – Strafor Intelligence
  14. Pentagon pushes forward on Syria pullout: USS Kearsarge to back up troops at the vulnerable moment they are leaving Syria – Wall Street Journal
  15. USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) back in the Persian Gulf to continue ISIS fight; a show of force to nearby Iran – CBS News
  16. Amphibious assault ship USS Essex (LHD-2) is in the North Arabian Sea – USNI
  17. Netanyahu wants US recognition of Israel sovereignty over Golan Heights – Middle East Monitor
  18. In Arab world, belief prevails that Trump will recognize Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights – Ynet
  19. Jordanian FM to Pompeo: Israel must eventually withdraw from Golan – Times of Israel
  20. After U.S. prod, ex-envoy to China says Haifa Port deal must be reversed – Jerusalem Post
  21. Israel-China experts downplay impact of Haifa Port decision – Jerusalem Post
  22. Egypt’s El Sisi Builds Middle East’s Largest Church – CBN.”

Bill doesn’t refer to specific bible prophecies because most of his readership, like mine, is familiar with Old and New Testament prophecies. [Those covering current events in the Middle-East are Daniel 7-8 (the vision of four beasts, the goat and ram), Zecharia 12 (Jerusalem and its enemies) and Ezekiel 36-19 (Gog & Magog) in the main.]

Next, he outlines the points Secretary Pompeo made in his speech in Cairo, which was a sensible turnaround of the seriously flawed one addressed to the whole Muslim world by Obama in 2009. [My critiques of Obama’s Cairo Speech followed by Europe and Two Daniels (ie. the EU) were some of my early emails on end-times.]

Subsequently, Debka reports Sunni Arab leaders are very uneasy about America pulling out of their region in the face of Iranian aggression, but they have to learn to look after themselves – in my opinion they will draw more closely alongside Israel, an alignment that started months ago.  Also, it’s a necessary part of shaking off the shackles of the Obama pro-Iranian legacy.

1989 > 2009 > 2019 > The Age To Come

Arising from references to The Divine Council and Millennium training in comments on a prophetic word on the UK Government, and how the Church can influence it by virtue of its Kingdom authority, a reader asked me about such training within churches.

It’s an excellent question in view of the implications in that word, and in others brought by Bobby Conner, Neville JohnsonLana Vawser and Veronika West to name a few, on bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth (eg, Lana on prayer lives being filled with holy fire).

Also, I’m aware of some ministries that equip us for service in that event:

  • Christian International Europe (Dr Sharon Stone) in Windsor, Berks
  • Catch The Fire in Birmingham, Bournemouth, Wembley
  • Bethel Church, Redding, CA & White Dove Ministries AL, in USA.
  • Partners in Harvest International.

In replying to that reader I sent a link to Bible and ancient languages scholar Dr Michael Heiser, as well as this excellent video received earlier from Paul Keith Davis, founder and leader of White Dove Ministries, about prophetic models from and operating in “The Age to Come” :

Personally, this is all highly encouraging and brings to mind what was indicated to me about it 7 years ago as ‘The Book Beyond the Bible’, which I blogged about in Supermoon Monday’s Blood Moon and The Age To Come as below:

‘At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, beyond The Apocalypse, or Revelation given to Jesus Christ, for showing to and recording by His close disciple and apostle, John.

‘As noted in Revival 1: glory stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!

‘That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.’

About 10 years ago I was particularly blessed at a conference in Bath where Paul Keith was teaching. As a listed art-deco cinema, the sanctuary area of Bath City Church has cinema seats sloping down to a broad, deep level floor in front of a raised platform. I recall him teaching from that floor when he got a prophetic word for someone sitting in the rear of the auditorium. Suddenly, he strode up an aisle to deliver it closer to the person. However, whilst passing me in an aisle-seat on his left, he turned to look directly at me and told me: “Await His return!” – Wow, was I undone!

So although Paul Keith was about to deliver a word he must have been diverted by the Holy Spirit to convey a brief command to me – one that must be mightily important for me to know and obey as an essential part of my destiny!  So, I can but trust it’s true!

Also, I’m not the only one having grounds for believing in the distinct possibility of Jesus Christ returning in their lifetime. A friend informed me he knows a lady in her 80’s who’s assured she will live to witness that event. And Nicholas, author of the previous post on moving into the Millennium is of a similar mind.

Why the dates in this post’s header?  1989 is when I encountered Jesus. 2009 is when I began writing about End-times and biblical and contemporary prophecies.

Lastly, let’s remind ourselves that the ‘Age To Come’ has been accessible to disciples since the earliest days of the pristine church, as witnessed by the author of the book to the Hebrews (New King James Version):

The Peril of Not Progressing

6 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this [b]we will do if God permits.

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, [c]if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

SELAH

Moving into the Millennium

This by Nicholas is especially recommended for I suspected he’d follow up on our short public and private discussion on this topic by publishing his thoughts on this matter, on which I too have prepared a post on The Age To Come to follow this re-blog. In particular, we’re on the same page re last sentence of his opening paragraph…

All Along the Watchtower

Many contributors and readers at AATW know that I believe the return of Christ is near. I will not state a year or make any of the specific predictions that date-setters do. I do not believe He will return in the next year; all I can say is that, in my spirit, I feel the coming and believe it will be within my lifetime.

I have held this belief for some time. It is born from an intuition, deep within, and from reading Scripture. Jesus in His Olivet Discourse gave a sequence to help us understand when His return would be near: the Abomination of Desolation; the Great Tribulation; the darkening of the sky; the sign of the Son of Man and the return of Jesus on the clouds.

Without a proper understanding of this sequence, the Olivet Discourse becomes unintelligible. The intertextuality between the Olivet Discourse and the Book…

Bible Update: “Like Pieces of Meat Before Our Teeth” (Daniel 7:5)

Meanwhile ‘back on the ranch’; ie. where my interest in Bible prophecy kick-started 30 years ago upon seeing Iranian forces rehearsal of storming Jerusalem (details here) – Not forgetting this week’s news of Iranian regime’s persecution of Muslim converts to Christ.:

…..so said one of the kings of the Persian ram. Once again we see the Iranian regime speaking prophecy from Daniel. If the Signpost interpretation is true, the Iranian regime is planning…

7 years ago today: the Key To Foretelling The Future

Now, dear reader, let’s turn the dials in our imaginary time machine again. Set your watch back yet another 700-odd years – and discover how we can go forward from there!

This takes us to the time ancient Rome was founded and the first Olympic Games got under way in ancient  Greece.  Also, Assyria was poised to conquer the Middle East and become a mighty regional power.

A Hebrew prophet and student of geopolitics, Isaiah, could see conflict approaching and, sure enough, the northern kingdom of Israel, Samaria, fell to Assyria in 721BC. A couple of decades earlier, Isaiah had a profound vision of the glory of The Holy Lord of Heavenly Hosts within His temple (see 6th chapter of The Book of Isaiah).

7 years ago today: Not Many people Know This…

This post, one of my first blogs in November 2011, later featured on the Home page to inform visitors of the acceleration of prophetic fulfillment, as may be inferred from the links to confirmatory events two years later:

As you may have gathered from my Welcome, I’m into eschatology – the theological study of the destiny and judgement of nations and all people, even angels!  You may know it as ‘The Last Days’ or, more popularly, as ‘End-Times’. The origin of this term is in the ancient Hebrew Torah’s description: Acharit Hayamin, ie. ‘Last of the Years’.

Let me take you for a very brief visit into one of my favourite classes where Dr Chuck Missler is asking his students, ‘Why Eschatology?Continue reading

Update on End-times’ cashless society (Rev 13:16-18’s Mark of the Beast)

Noticed on this weekend’s World Watch Daily homepage display (the other headline on US Supreme Justice Kavanaugh is noteworthy too!):

Click image for direct link to Fox News article

It reminds me of the prophecy at Revelation 13:16-18 on the activity of the ‘Beast from the Earth’:

‘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.’

Also, reminds me what internationally renowned Australian Barry R Smith taught on the emerging technology soon to introduce a cashless society and ‘Pay & Go’, as read over 20 years ago in ‘…better than Nostradamus’ and ‘The Devil’s Jigsaw’!
