Prophetic Watch on America and President Trump cont’d: 4 – spheres of influence and the First Horseman of the Apocalypse

In most ESSENTIAL, instructive teaching Able Praise identities demonic activity of not only America’s but also global media (including anti-Pope Francis!). It is directly related to Apostle John’s vision of the first of four horsemen of The Apocalypse being released after Jesus’ opens the first four seals of the 7-sealed scroll handed to Him by our Heavenly Father (Revelation 5). Abel writes in His Kingdom Prophecy :

AMERICA: PRESIDENCIES and SPHERES of INFLUENCE: THE MEDIA GAVE JOE BIDEN ITS THRONE

There are tremendous shifts going on in the heavens; as the saints wage war through prayers to enact the righteous Will of The LORD.

While we have our earthly perspective of leadership and how things play out on earth; we must also learn to gain heaven’s perspective; to see how the heavens are shaping the activities on earth.

Much more than the election of numbers in the earthly politics, there is the election of Thrones in the Heavens; and every significant political office holder rules through a Spiritual Throne that defines the sphere of their influence in the earth — and the things they have limit and permission to do.

This is a Tipping Point – Wendy Alec

I appreciate Veronika drawing this word to my attention which is published on The Elijah List last Wednesday 9th Nov. (I’m pleased because I’d seen it weeks ago but unable to action.) It was first posted on Wendy’s Facebook on 23rd September, and is similar to the Urgent ‘Kairos’ Warning Dr Sharon Stone had especially received two days earlier on her birthday 21st September – mine’s between both days!  LOL some sandwich! (Apologies for not having time to have completed a transcript)

Recently one morning, the Father had a message:

“This is the tipping point. The bowls are full. I have issued a divine stay. I have issued a heavenly writ in My Courts of Justice, against the trading floors of the enemy.

“The cries and the incessant intercession of My sons and daughters have been collected, by My angelic host, into the mighty bowls of the intercession of My saints, and have reached a tipping point on My scales of justice and judgment on My altar. I am tipping the bowls. I am tipping the bowls. I have issued a divine stay.”

“Daddy, Abba, what is going on? It’s like we’re all living in a surreal movie. Daddy, what do You want me to say?” I asked.

THIS IS NOT THAT

Our wonderful Father said, “Beloved daughter, tell My beloveds, firstly, that this is not that. This is not that. This is not the tribulation. This is not the time of the anti-Christ, but it is the precursor. Tell My beloveds, alert My sons and daughters that My Church has now entered the outskirts; the tremblings of the end of the age.

“The enemy has endeavored to preempt My divine timeline, but he will fail just as he has failed so many times before. His last all-out attempt was in the times of Hitler. I not only circumvented it, but through the cries and prayers of My saints, the enemy’s plans to destroy My people through the Holocaust were turned on their head and the nation of Israel was born in a day. 

“The cries and the incessant intercession of My sons and daughters have reached a tipping point on My scales of justice and judgment on My altar. They are being poured out at this very moment as judgment against the enemy and as judgment on the enemy’s world systems.

I have issued a heavenly writ in My courts of justice and against the trading floors of the enemy. I have issued a divine stay from the destruction the enemy has intended, against the pre-emptive strike to destroy, kill and usher in the end of the age.

“So do not fear, beloved. Do not fear. The situation is not going to pan out as the enemy’s victory, but I tell you that even as the Israelites stood at the Red Sea, the waters will part. Know this: I am your God. I am your mighty God. I am your omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, mighty, mighty God.

“So put your hand in Mine this day. Know that My protection is yours. Plead My Son’s powerful Blood over your households and watch. Watch and pray, expectantly…expectantly…expectantly, beloved, for the enemy to be routed.

“As the tipping point occurs, inch by inch, foot by foot, yard by yard and mile by mile, fear will be routed. My peace will start to rain down from heavenly portals as My justice invades the earth. My peace will rain down like a divine mantle.

“Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. For surely you will see My hand in this coming hour, for by next spring, beloved, the earth will be swept with the renewal and health of My divine justice, and My divine mantle. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. You are Mine.”

Veronika’s vision of burning bush fits sequence of Biblical parallels!

Although not a fan of Sid Roth, I recommend his video-interview because it puts the vision of Donald Trump and a burning bush into the perspective of Biblical prophetic parallels. Moreover, Robin Bullock’s opening reference to 2012 as beginning a timeline of parallels fits into not only my dream and Bill Johnson’s word for the UK in Sept 2011 of the Coming Kingdom and launching this blog, but also William Koenig on Bible cycles as well as Nathan Morris’ word 2012 Setting the Stage for the End-times and that of Dr Sharon Stone’s on the world-changing significance of Hurricane Sandy….!!!

SO be mightily blessed

AND, it just so happens I happened upon the following much shorter teaching by Perry Stone on Bible prophecy parallel and cycles, where significant events of ancient times get mirrored in modern days.

FURTHERMORE, I’d once again been mulling over these years being a replay of the ‘Days of Noah’ as prophesied by Jesus himself:

Revisiting Covid-conspiracy: prophecies, ‘pandemic’ or ‘pLandemic’?

Thank you to those who read and commented upon my blogging on Covid conspiracy theories (here and here) for it’s not a subject upon which I have time to spend – it has many rabbit trails and questionable ideas and motives of various authors.

When Covid forced Britain and many nations into lockdown in March it was a very busy time personally, as well as on this blog and corresponding. Principally, I was occupied with assessing a spectrum of prophetic and scriptural material, insights and opinions. In view of the rapid generation of fear I had to pull one prophecy from this blog because it could act as an unhelpful declaration. Also, not only did it forecast a long duration of this outbreak but also stated a specific number of hospitals being affected. But, that number was incorrect in being far too small because almost every hospital has been seriously affected. 

A discussion arose within prophetical brethren on the origins of the global pandemic. My asking about the virus’ origin had generated an interesting flow of information. So on the night of 23rd March I put all scriptural, prophetic, investigative and speculative options to the Lord. Upon waking the next day I asked, “Is the pandemic from You Lord?” and got the immediate answer: “No, it is man-made!!” (As in footnote to this prophecy.)

Therefore, keeping alert for confirmation of His reply became a high priority and several soon came from the highest intelligence and scientific levels (see series #121.10 in this summary of pandemic-related prophecies and reviews). 

NOW, it’s time to continue digging deeper with my cyber-friend RJ Dawson who blogs at Real Christianity, a number of which have featured here in Richard’s Watch:

RJ comments as follows on my blog about the Cardiff church visited by the police: Continue reading

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

The main message of prophetical ‘signals’ #51 received globally earlier this month is of the Lord Jesus keeping His focus on our heavenly Father’s purposes (Footnote refers). Then on Tuesday, 8th September, I learned what Neil Mackereth has been hearing from Him, as revealed in this email:

‘The Lord has been speaking to me about prayer, over the last few days: the difference between watching with Him and watching for Him! (See below)

‘We are blessed to be witnesses to the unfolding of Bible meaning. The Lord has made it clear to me that we should do our utmost to attune our soul, mind and spirit to see what is happening around us with HIS eyes and understanding. (Emphases RB)

‘There is a real danger that those who are not watching with Him will forsake Him and flee, when the going gets tough. The Holy Spirit imparts the power to watch with Jesus and I pray for a renewed infilling for all of us for that purpose.’ 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.

PS. Within 3 weeks along came 9 signals from both sides of the ‘Pond’, as shown in Last Week’s GPS on New Church also include USA & Canada (GPS #51).

‘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!

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”

Another friend reports encountering email gremlins when replying to me, as in part 2.

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
