Neil Mackereth: a Habbakuk-type Oracle

Further to the previous posted yesterday on two prophecies that were published Friday and Saturday, Neil Mackereth was urged to email but apologised for doing so on a Saturday; “However, I have noted of late that the speed of events is such that delay is not appropriate!”  I’m copying his message as received from Neil (he doesn’t usually use bold typeface):

AN ORACLE

A week ago, in a time of meditation, the Lord spoke to me:

Consider the expression: “Hope springs eternal” and read it as: “Hope spring’s eternal” – in the sense that “hope” is expectation (as in “our hope is in Jesus” i.e. Faith). Have faith that what will happen this Spring will have eternal significance.

On pondering this I was led to Habakkuk and saw certain similarities with our present situation:

How long, O Lord, will the outrageous, demonic and exceedingly unwholesome agendas of the wicked succeed and prosper?

 “Look at the Nations and watch – and be utterly amazed”

All the negotiations of men are being overtaken by the onslaught of Covid-19. Just as Habakkuk watched for the Babylonian invasion of Israel, so we are to watch the advancing Covid-19, and seek to understand the spiritual significance of this assault on an ill-prepared (unrighteous) world.

This virus scoffs at men whose strength and pride is in their wealth, intellect or fame; ignores frontiers, fortifications and weapons of war, and laughs at our unwillingness to cry out to the Lord.

“If My people who are called by My Name …. “ (2 Chronicles 7:14)

During the week I felt called to:

Meditate on the horrendous, unspeakable and utterly unjust treatment of My Son, that led to His crucifixion and death. Then remember that His barbaric mistreatment was an absolutely necessary forerunner to His resurrection and your salvation. So, too, are the troubles now coming on the earth an absolutely necessary forerunner to the return of Jesus and the fulfillment of My plan for the redemption of the world.

Something utterly amazing is going to happen this Spring.

Leisa Ebere: global preparation-time

Again we consider the imminent manifestation of the harvest of the wheat and tares, with its direct relevance to my calling to write on End-times (as herein), as well as our taking a Stand upon the Rock of Christ emerging in Britain (2004 open vision).  Revival? Not yet!

As for all prophetical postings, this is to be weighed with the Lord and against His Word.

Leisa’s email arrived soon after booting up my pc today, and wherein she writes:  ‘Early this morning, the Lord gave me clarification in regards to the international issues that are presently challenging the Earth, and I wanted to share His Words with you and the readers:

THE GLOBAL PREPARATION-TIME PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 27/02/20

“Pride goes before destruction,” says the Lord, “and I am allowing a scattering of seeds of disease and calamity to come upon the proud and the haughty, across the nations of the earth who torment and scoff at the innocent and those that call upon My Name. For my Sovereign Hand shall bring protection to My Faithful Ones, and shall block the actions of the evil one as I sweep many of this wicked generation away in this next season. For the 2020’s shall not be a global outpouring of My Spirit, as many suppose, but rather a clearing out of evil and a making room for the positioning of My Remnant, with lightening bursts of My Spirit reflecting My Power released to those who want to serve me with their whole hearts. I am sifting the wheat from the chaff,” says the Lord, “and it is time to stand up and be counted in these last days, and become ready for the harvest. I have released angels with mighty sickles and they are digging deep into the Earth. For the time of preparation is at hand,” says The Lord of Hosts. “Heed My Voice!”

Blessings, Leisa Ebere

Through the looking glass: hidden prophecy and the Sign of Jonah — Real Christianity

It is especially encouraging that my writing has inspired one of my American friends, RJ Dawson, to republish his article on the historic mistakes of some Twentieth Century US eschatologists (or ‘escapologists’ – my term for Rapture-ites). RJ comments as follows upon my post of the PM’s speech reflecting Veronika West’s vision of Britain and I’d encourage you to take time to read his original item too and discussion therein:

“Thanks Richard. I’ve been catching up on your site and reading several of your latest posts. I read the full versions of your two posts on the State of the Prophetic. You have gathered quite an extensive collection and it is impressive. I continued through the previous articles. I had read the post about Veronika’s vision earlier in the day along with the comments and thought it was most interesting. It led me to a post I wrote two years ago (1/29/18) which you commented upon and reblogged on your site. It is entitled THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: HIDDEN PROPHECY AND THE SIGN OF JONAH. It is interesting as well that you made mention of prophetic happenings of the last two years.

“I decided to post my article again. Rather than reblog it, I wrote a new one page introduction containing a link to the article at bottom and just now posted it.

“I think you and your readers may like to read this post again in light of current events and compare notes over the subsequent happenings since that time. We live in a new era on so many fronts. I have been blessed to see many astounding spiritual events in my time after joining up with the Lord in 1976. It often takes a long range perspective to properly parse out and analyze spiritual history in order to gain a correct perspective, along with massive amounts of research on many subjects. It is in part why the Lord requires elders.

“Incidentally, to go along with your extensive research, I have recently been reading once again about the latter day Holy Spirit outpouring in America which began in Topeka, Kansas in 1901, moved through Houston, Texas, and then broke forth in Los Angeles in the world-changing Asuza Street Revival which began in 1906 and continued for about three years.

“I’m including the link to my article here for your perusal. Thank you, Richard. Blessings to you, and keep up the great work.”

Dear Readers: Due to several cataclysmic events of “Biblical Proportions” taking place throughout the world at present, and the UK’s recent Brexit from the EU, many Christians are of a mind that we are in the last of the “last days.” The evidence is unconvincing, however, and by itself is nothing more than an […]

The depth of the five scripture passages of the 2nd Signpost — Mark Davidson

After learning about a ‘chiasmus’ in the Book of Jonah during Sunday’s service, it’s note-worthy how Mark Davidson explains this literary-spiritual device within certain prophetic passages on current events in the Middle-East…

While we are waiting for the next significant news item from Iran and the Middle East, it seemed good to have a review of the Scripture passages all having a say in the Second Signpost. This is meant to remind us that the Second Signpost, the invasion by Iran of the Middle East, is more […]

Veronika West: NEW E-R-A = Expect Radical Advancement

LOVE this word as it directly relates to my hearing “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!” upon opening my Bible to check the wheat and tares parable and which kick-started my writing on End-times 11 years ago, as told in The Endgame is now in play.:

NEW E•R•A….”EXPECT•RADICAL•ADVANCEMENT OF MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”..says God

Today while worshipping the King of Glory I heard the Spirit say this…

”DAUGHTER IN THIS NEW ERA THERE SHALL BE A GREATER OUTPOURING OF MY GLORY WHICH WILL BRING ABOUT A DIVINE DISTINCTION WITHIN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WATCH! AS A GREAT SEPARATION WILL TAKE PLACE, WHEAT AND CHAFF SHALL BE SIFTED AS MY KINGDOM ADVANCES WITH GREATER ACCELERATION AND MOMENTUM IN THE DAYS AHEAD, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU THIS NEW ERA SHALL TURN THE NATIONS UPSIDE-DOWN AND INSIDE-OUT…”, as I heard those words I saw the letters E•R•A and I heard the Spirit say, “ERA… EXPECT•RADICAL•ADVANCEMENT OF MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”

Then I heard the sound of the letter ‘E’ and then the Spirit of Revelation spoke to me saying, “MY ECCLESIA SHALL ARISE AND SHINE WITH GREATER EXPECTATION WHICH WILL BRING TO BIRTH EVEN GREATER MANIFESTATIONS OF MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS…WATCH AND PRAY MY BELOVED!…FOR THIS WILL BE AN ERA OF THE EXTREME, THE EXTRAORDINARY AND EVEN GREATER EXPLOITS, MY KINGDOM SHALL EXPAND AND INCREASE, MANY SHALL RECEIVE SUPERNATURAL ELEVATION, DIVINE EXCHANGES AND DEEPER ENCOUNTERS WITH MY GLORY. HA! GET READY…FOR GREATER DEMONIC EXPOSURES WILL BE SEEN BOTH IN MY HOUSE AND THE HOUSES OF GOVERNMENT, SUDDEN AND SEVERE EARTHQUAKES AND ERUPTIONS BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND NATURALLY…SHALL TAKE PLACE THAT WILL SHAKE AND SHIFT THE NATIONS AND BRING MANY TO THEIR KNEES…”,

Then I heard the sound of the letter ‘R’ echo in the realm of the Spirit, and I heard these words, “REPENTANCE AND THE RETURNING OF THE PRODIGALS, RESTORATION, RECOMPENSE AND KINGDOM REFORMATION SHALL BE SEEN, EVEN GREATER REVELATION AND VISION SHALL BE RELEASED TO THE SURRENDERED ONES, GREATER RICHES AND WEALTH TRANSFER SHALL BREAK THE STRANGLEHOLD OF LACK AND A POVERTY MINDSET. WATCH! BELOVED AS A MIGHTY REMNANT WILL RISE IN RADICAL OBEDIENCE AND SACRIFICE PREPARED AND EMPOWERED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS, WATCH AND STAY VIGILANT IN THIS HOUR…AS DIVINE RETRIBUTION AND THE RULE AND REIGN OF MY RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENTS AND JUSTICE IS EXECUTED IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, BUT! FEAR NOT AS REFORMATION AND REVIVAL SPRINGS FORTH AND DIVINE REVERSALS AND SEVEN-FOLD RESTITUTION COMES TO THOSE WHO WALK UPRIGHTLY….”,

Then I saw the letter ‘A’ in the realm of the Spirit and the Spirit of Lord said, “LISTEN! FOR THE SOUND OF MY TRUMPET HERALDS A GREAT AWAKENING IN THE EARTH AS MY END-TIME ARMY ARISES WITH GREATER APOSTOLIC AND PROPHETIC POWER AND AUTHORITY TO SHIFT AND RESHAPE MANY NATIONS, SEE! FOR A DIVINE ACCELERATION WILL BE UPON THE LIPS OF MY PEOPLE AS I TAKE THEM HIGHER AND DEEPER, DAUGHTER…WATCH! AS THE SECRET PLACE BECOMES AN EVEN THINNER PLACE AS MANY WILL BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE GREATER ANGELIC VISITATIONS, AND IN AWE THEIR MOUTHS SHALL BE OPENED WIDE I SHALL FILL THEM WITH ROYAL ANNOUNCEMENTS AND DECREES THAT WILL CARRY THE WEIGHT OF MY GLORY UPON THEM. EVEN NOW THERE IS A HOLY HUNGERING AND THIRSTING THAT IS INVADING THE ATMOSPHERE CREATING A TIPPING POINT FOR GREATER BREAKTHROUGH, SET-BACKS SHALL BECOME DIVINE SET-UPS, A LAUNCHING-PAD TO EVEN GREATER KINGDOM ADVENTURES AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT. YES! MY HAND NOW MOVES TO BRING FORTH DIVINE CONNECTIONS AND STRATEGIC APPOINTMENTS FOR A GREATER KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT IS NOW TAKING PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”…!

“BUT FEAR NOT MY RIGHTEOUS REMNANT! FOR IN THIS THE 11th HOUR AS THE SPIRIT OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION PASSES OVER THE NATIONS SO YOU WILL BE HIDDEN AND PRESERVED FOR THE DAY OF MY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE HAS NOW COME TO THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

LIKE A SICKLE MY SWORD COMES TO SEPARATE THE SHEEP AND GOAT NATIONS, WATCH! FOR NOW THE NATIONS ARE COMING INTO PERFECT ALIGNMENT WITH THE END-TIME PLANS AND PURPOSES OF MY KINGDOM IN THE EARTH”.., says God.

Bible Update: Red flag flies over Mahdi’s mosque: Apocalypse’s 2nd horseman may now have its sword!

ESSENTIAL READING: Mark Davidson brings what may be the most important insight you may read on the immediate aftermath of America taking decisive, defensive action against a regime that is actually hell-bent on bringing about the End of the World, as covered here on Richard’s Watch in many postings under the Mahdi tag.

It’s absolutely imperative ALL Christians – especially those in leadership – know about the eschatalogical impulse behind the Iranians engineering such a conflict in order to bring about the return of Shi’ite Islam’s 12th ‘hidden imam’, followed en-train by Jesus!!

For a fuller grasp of this dangerous doctrine browse through the above tag, starting with my blog of nearly 7 years ago Iranian Leader’s End-Times Declaration.

I never thought I would be writing an article like this, for I had never thought one single event could equate to the second horseman being made ready to make men slay one another. There are reports from Twitter and, at this point, only British tabloids such as the Express, Metro, and Sun, that something […]

Historic timing of three ‘Books of Destiny’ posting, the ECJ’s ruling against Israel and America’s policy on settlements

Upon awaking this morning I was immediately grabbed by the deep significance of the timing over Monday-Tuesday, 11-12th Nov, of two publications reported on this blog:

  1. Veronika West’s posting of a vision and word of about the inter-related destinies of the United Kingdom, the United States of America and of Israel.
  2. The European Court of Justice’s decision that all member states of the EU are now required by law to label goods of Israeli origin coming from the West Bank.

As indicated within the ECJ’s publication, and summarised by Caroline Glick, that final official ruling was the culmination of a lengthy sequence of legal proceedings.

That is, the day before the ECJ publishes it’s anti-Israel declaration, attracting Genesis 12:3 penalty against Europe, Veronika publishes that mighty vision for the three nations that will receive the holy blessing promised in Gen 12:3.

I believe only the Living Lord God could have arranged such synchronicity between an unholy legislative earthly event and an exceptional Holy Spirit sign!

MOREOVER, Veronika introduced the vision by saying,

“I have sat on this Vision for just under a week as it has challenged much of my own understanding of end-time theology concerning these Nations but dare I say I felt the Spirit of God say, “OBEDIENCE IS ALL I REQUIRE OF YOU”, hence why I am posting this word/vision at this time, as I believe it is a ‘NOWWORD.” (Emphases added)

One of my readers asked me what’s Veronika’s ‘understanding’. I replied that he check with her but he found on her Facebook thread someone had already done so, to which she replies (as of my own mind too – again underlining is mine),

“In a nutshell my friend it’s a TIMING THING CONCERNING ENDTIME EVENTS”.

On the 7th day (18th Nov), which Caroline Glick reckons “will long be remembered as a turning point in Middle East history”, the US Secretary of State issues a statement to the press on a major about-face in the American government’s policy on Israel’s settlements in the West Bank.

He thereby fully refutes and rebutts the legitimacy of not only the EU’s anti-Israel stance but also that of President Obama’s anti-Israel obsession!

In his Remarks To The Press Secretary Mike Pompeo covers many areas of foreign affairs, including Iran and Iraq, but this is the vital part of historic moment:

New ECJ anti-Israel law brings Biblical curse upon the EU – and British & American action!

Now [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, “Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father’s house, to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others]. And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed” [and by you they will bless themselves]. – Genesis 12:1-3; Amplified Bible (Classic)

[Footnote v3: ‘To look with disfavor upon the Jews was to invite God’s displeasure and to treat the Jews offensively was to incur His wrath, but to befriend them would bring down upon one’s head the rewards of a promise that could not be broken.’]

THE PRIME PURPOSE FOR A CLEAN BREXIT FROM THE E.U. IS NOW ABUNDANTLY AND UNQUESTIONABLY PLAIN FOR ALL TO SEE!

A week ago today the European Court of Justice (ECJ) released a legal ruling that’s an  anti-Semitic bomb: one that will blow up in the European Union’s face – maybe bringing down the modern tower of Babel?  In this blog we’ll look at British, American and Israeli reaction.

The ruling was made in response to a lawsuit brought before a French court by Psagot winery, located north of Jerusalem, and decrees that all EU member states must affix special labels to Jewish-made Israeli “foodstuffs” produced beyond Israel’s 1949 armistice line (ie. the ‘West bank’) and exported to EU member states. It begins…(plus later extract):

‘In the judgment Organisation juive européenne and Vignoble Psagot (C-363/18), delivered on 12 November 2019, concerning the interpretation of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011,1 the Grand Chamber of the Court ruled that foodstuffs originating in territories occupied by the State of Israel must bear the indication of their territory of origin, accompanied, where those foodstuffs come from a locality or a group of localities constituting an Israeli settlement within that territory, by the indication of that provenance…the Court held that the indication of the territory of origin of the foodstuffs in question is mandatory, within the meaning of Regulation No 1169/2011, in order to prevent consumers from being misled as to the fact that the State of Israel is present in the territories concerned as an occupying power and not as a sovereign entity…’ [Court of Justice of the European Union Press Release 140/19]

Here’s a brief overview of related news; click links to read each article in full.:

UK PM JOHNSON’S REACTION

Regular readers of this blog will be aware of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s great love of Israel [New PM Brings Biblical Blessing to Britain] and so the news of Conservative Party’s reaction against the ECJ ruling comes as welcome news, as may be deduced from – Tories to ban councils from boycotting goods from Israel under manifesto plans.

US PRESIDENT TRUMP’S REACTION

Award-winning political reporter Adam Kredo and senior writer on national security and foreign policy matters for the Washington Free Beacon writes on Wednesday 13th,

‘The Trump administration is preparing to go toe-to-toe with the European Union over the latter’s recent decision to mandate that Jewish-made goods produced in contested areas of Israel carry consumer warning labels, a decision critics have described as reminiscent of Nazi-era boycotts, according to senior U.S. officials who briefed the Washington Free Beacon…

‘Observers viewed the decision as a major win for the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The labels are not being applied to Palestinian goods produced in the same areas, a point emphasized by legal experts who described the decision as part of a larger global effort to delegitimize Israel and penalize Jewish manufacturers…’

Here’s the specific reaction of President Trump’s Administration:

Senior Trump administration officials told the Free Beacon in their first public comments on the matter that the administration is gearing up to fight the E.U.’s decision and protect its Middle Eastern ally from threats both physical and legal.

‘The officials said efforts to delegitimize Israel will not be taken lightly by the Trump administration and will be met with counteraction. Combatting the EU labeling mandate is a “top priority for us,” one senior administration official working on the matter told the Free Beacon. “We strongly condemn it.”

‘The Trump administration considers the E.U.’s legal moves an endorsement of the BDS movement, which aims to wage economic warfare on Israel and its citizens. The decision also undermines U.S. efforts to foster peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, officials said.

“This is BDS, plain and simple,” the official said, discussing the ongoing matter only on background. “The administration strongly opposes the decision. It will not have the intended effect. These efforts have never brought peace, only more divisions. I think we’ve been clear that we think this is consistent with the BDS movement and we think the BDS movement is anti-Semitic,” the official added in some of the clearest comments on the administration’s view of the movement.

‘Trump administration officials were especially offended by the E.U.’s decision given renewed violence in Israel, where Palestinian terrorists have fired hundreds of rockets at Jewish civilians during the past several days.

“The decision to announce this as Israel is defending a civilian population against hundreds of rockets is particularly tone deaf and demonstrates how poorly the E.U. understands the ramifications of these actions,” the official said.

‘U.S. officials and legal experts who spoke to the Free Beacon further said the E.U.’s ruling is likely to trigger a series of American anti-boycott laws that were enacted in large part to undermine the BDS movement and protect Israel from discrimination.’

Adam then refers to American resolve too deal with international, discriminatory laws:

‘A group of leading lawmakers in Congress warned the E.U. earlier this week that any decision to single out Jewish-made goods would be met with an aggressive response by the United States. The Trump administration says that it is more than willing to work with its partners in Congress to bolster any action they may take in the coming weeks.

“Historically, the U.S. has had a good track record in anti-boycott laws and certainly the admin would be interested in working with Congress on it additionally, and I think we would enjoy broad bipartisan support,” the senior administration official said.

‘Experts anticipate the E.U.’s decision will strain its economic relationship with the United States. “The decision will no doubt affect US-EU trade relations, as so many U.S. officials have already warned,” Brooke Goldstein, executive director of the Lawfare Project, said in a statement to the Free Beacon. “It will likely trigger anti-boycott laws and ‘create policy tensions,’ as [Democratic New Jersey senator Bob] Menendez put it. EU countries that choose to enforce this decision will also be in violation of their WTO obligations. This will end up hurting the EU much more than it will hurt Israel.”

[Trump Admin Will Fight European mandate that Jewish-made Goods Carry ‘Warning Labels’ – emphases RB]

Furthermore on this very matter, yesterday Monday 18th November is a historic date for being a turning pointing in Middle-East history! The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo officially announced Washington has shifted its policy on Israeli settlements. Having carefully studied all the facts, he supports President Reagan’s findings and declared they’re not “inconsistent with international law.”  Therefore, “the Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration’s approach towards Israeli settlements“.  [Read the Full Text of Pompeo’s Statement on Settlements – extract on the settlements and insight into this matter may be read in the next post on the historic timing of this event.]

CAROLINE GLICK’S REACTION

‘Ne plus ultra’ (‘none better’) journalist, Caroline Glick is thorough in her exposure of the ECJ’s ruling as the outcome of the EU’s long-standing hostility towards Israel. Some snippets from her incisive analysis of Our European ‘Friends’.:

‘Israeli lawyers noted at the time that the European demand for discriminatory labels violated international trade law, but this made no impression on European decision-makers.

‘The French court’s referral to the ECJ was a big deal. It created a means for anti-Israel forces in the EU to render the interpretive notice from 2015 legally binding on all EU states without obtaining unanimous consent. ECJ judgments bind all EU states

‘Once his recommendation was published, any residual hope the ECJ would act in accordance with international trade law and reject the proposed discriminatory labelling policy was extinguished.

‘But then, with or without the advocate general’s recommendation, Israel and Psagot never stood a chance of getting justice at the ECJ. Before it is a judicial body, the ECJ is a political arm of the EU whose job it is to uphold EU policies and strengthen EU institutions.

‘The EU’s policy towards Israel has been clear for a very long time.

‘For decades, the EU has been waging a hostile campaign against Israel. The goals of its campaign are to call Israel’s right to exist into question, weaken Israel economically and politically, and strengthen Israel’s enemies at Israel’s expense. The EU wages its campaign through political, diplomatic and economic warfare…

‘As for Europe’s support for Israel’s enemies, led by Germany, the EU refuses to walk away from the nuclear deal with Iran, or reinstate economic sanctions against Iran in light of its open material breaches of the limitations the nuclear deal placed on its nuclear activities.

‘So too, led by Germany, the EU refuses to designate all arms of Hezbollah as a terror group. This pro-Hezbollah policy has the deadly result of enabling the Iranian-controlled terror group to operate and raise money openly in Europe.

‘Both of these policies, which pave Iran’s way to a nuclear arsenal and empower its foreign legion are hostile acts towards Israel.

‘Then there is the EU’s adulation of the Palestinians. EU institutions do not merely legitimize Palestinian terror groups, including Hamas and the PFLP. They enthusiastically embrace them…

‘In the face of the EU’s implacable, long standing and steadily expanding efforts to harm Israel, the notion Israel can reasonably expect to ever receive a fair hearing from any EU body is ridiculous….

‘Europe is not enlightened and it is not Israel’s ally. It is not susceptible to reason and evidence. It is a hostile post-national governing structure that is conducting political, diplomatic and economic warfare against Israel to harm the Jewish state and assist its enemies.

‘So long as our leaders and our officials refuse to accept this basic truth, we will continue to experience defeat and discrimination as individuals and collectively at the hands of our European “friends.”

“Out of the mouths of babes” – Stephen Powell on rapper Kanye West’s example to preachers

Again, what ‘coincidental’ timing! Just after posting the previous I noticed a new entry on Prophetic Releasers community group sharing this by Stephen Powell:

Tap/click image for link to Stephen Powell Facebook (not in new window)

FROM THE MOUTHS OF BABES: KANYE’S SURPRISING EXAMPLE TO PREACHERS IN THE WEST

(Matt.21:12-17)
12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ”
14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant
16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have perfected praise’?”
17 Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there. Continue reading

Author tells me about watching numerically for Messiah’s Return

In our conversations this week about ‘watching’ our times according to Bible prophecy and his new book Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, Jonathan Hill tells me,

“As you know, I’m frequently considering dates and events and looking to discern their biblical relevance, as part of my ministry in the Body of Christ. The dates, which you graciously gave me a while back (of significant events in your life), often come to the surface more often than others! As such please bear with me over the next few paragraphs, as I think these thoughts may be important.

“Has the Body of Christ really considered what exactly the church is looking for in the biblical ‘watch’? Is just being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’ sufficient? The assertion from Jesus to the church at Sardis was to watch because the ‘hour of His return’ is ‘unexpected’ and not revealed on the surface of scripture. They were personally exhorted by Jesus to watch for His return (at the Rapture) otherwise He would come upon them as a thief. The ‘watch’ is therefore more than just about being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’ and specifically about the ‘hour of His return’.

“Revelation 3:3 (NKJV) Remember therefore, how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore, if you will not watch I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you”

“If the biblical ‘watch’ is more than just being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’, what is it? This is the essence of the book ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’, because God has embedded (in the Bible) a simple mathematical pattern of triangular and pyramid numbers which perfectly depict God’s interventions across the ages.

“What is extraordinary is that these simple patterns are now appearing with pinpoint accuracy between globally witnessed events, especially those which relate to the transition of power away from the Gentiles in favour of Israel. Nebuchadnezzar’s seven times (Daniel 4:16) is up and currently in transitional closure with a short burst of anti-Christ at the end!

“So, Messiah’s command to watch must not be lightly esteemed. Biblically, the Lord has secrets (Amos 3:7, Daniel 2:22, Daniel 2:28) and scripture encourages (with ‘glory’, see Proverbs 25:2) the revelation of previously concealed truth. As such, all believers should consider the biblical watch. Alongside the spiritual gifts which the Lord has given to His church, let us not neglect that which the Lord has already placed in scripture. After all, spiritual gifts need to be weighed against scripture – not the other way around.

“Let me know what you think, I’d be very interested in your perspective. Above all else, be mightily encouraged in your work.”

I exclaim, “Ace, Jonathan!  Would you allow me to share all or part of your very valuable thoughts?  My reaction is, ‘Bang on!’

“As for the final paragraph’s ‘secrets’, please note a prophecy given me in final para of Why Write/blog? On 21 May 2009, renowned prophecy teacher Isabel Allum walked straight up to Nina and myself and divulged what she discerned of each of us. Of 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.”

Then I update my author friend, “You may know that I’ve re-run blogs on your previous book and the two ‘escape’ situations as being part of a fulfillment of prophecy? I’ve now re-run my few on ‘watching’ as a lead-in to announcing your latest book, to be followed by its ‘Watch’ updates.”

He responds,

“Yes, I’ve noticed your rerun of earlier blogs, which have been excellent!  Also, very encouraging about your Daniel prophecy – the correlation of ‘understanding’ and ’62’, together with the ‘number of years’ of Daniel 9:2, is fascinating.

“There is more detail in ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’ on pages 297 to 300, because the Hebrew gematria of the 120 (itself an important triangular and pyramid number) satraps (see Daniel 6:1) which Darius the Mede sets over his whole kingdom, is ‘2016’ (the 63rd triangular number).

“As confirmation of relevance to the current Body of Christ, remember that Daniel is, in part, a type of the church. Where was Daniel when his three colleagues were ordered into the furnace (stoked up to 7 times its normal heat – Daniel 3:19 – read 7 years tribulation for Israel) by King Nebuchadnezzar?

“Daniel was nowhere to be seen because, in type, Daniel had been raptured before the Tribulation!”

So I cannot wait to get into the book….but it would make a good Christmas present?
