[Nov 2020] Is Donald Trump’s heart for God’s Kingdom? – part 3 : personal faith

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” (John 17:20-23 NKJV)

Of myself: born and baptised in Roman Catholicism but when an adult became anti-church; but blessed to be saved and born-again by and baptised in the Holy Spirit, I regard myself as being non-denomination and desire the manifestation of the above prayer by My Saviour Jesus the Messiah.

And guess what? I find Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, is in the same boat with me – ie. non-denominational – as we shall soon see! Continue reading

To emerging sheep and goat nations God says choose who you serve: God or Baal, blessing or curse? – Veronika West

A VITALLY IMPORTANT AND MOST SIGNIFICANT WORD OF INSTRUCTION….

WORD FOR THE NATIONS: HEADS OR TAILS?

So, last night, as I got into bed and closed my eyes to go to sleep, I was suddenly taken into a strange and powerful Vision over The Nations.

There, I saw a large Gold Coin being tossed high into the air and, as the Gold Coin was tossed, I heard these words, ”Heads or Tails? Which do you choose?

In that moment, I felt an urgency in my spirit to quickly make a choice, but in what felt like a fleeting moment, I heard these Words, ”The LORD will make you the Head and not the Tail, and you will be above only, and you will not be beneath, if you listen and pay attention to The Commandments of The LORD your God which I AM Commanding you today, to observe them carefully!”

To which immediately I replied, ”Heads! I choose Heads!”

Now, as I spoke out those Words, suddenly I saw the Gold Coin again, and it was still turning in slow motion.

As I looked again at the Coin, I saw the head of a LION, with a CROWN upon its head, come up before me, and I knew by Revelation, that it was symbolic of The Lion of Judah.

But as I stayed watching, the Gold Coin continued to turn, and then, the tail of a dragon, encircled by fiery flames, came up before me on the flip-side of the Gold Coin, and I heard these Words,

”WATCH AND LISTEN! For I say to you, how long will you waver between two opinions?  If The LORD is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, follow him!”

As those Words echoed loudly in The Realm of The Spirit, suddenly the Vision expanded and I saw the Gold Coin turning in slow motion over The Nations who were in The Valley of Decision.

As I drew closer in the Vision, I could hear the sound of many voices shouting aloud, some were shouting out, ”Heads!” while others shouted out, ”We want tails!”

Now, as I listened to the sound of many voices rising from The Valley of Nations, suddenly I heard these Words, 

”Watch! For a Divine Separation has now begun, as Goat and Sheep Nations begin to emerge.

I say again, ‘Heads or Tails? Blessings or Curses?’ Which will you choose this day?

Watch! Change! Change! Change is upon the earthly kingdoms, as Nations are now in transition, for a Divine Distinction has begun!

See! For a Redistribution and a Repossession of Wealth shall begin to take place among The Nations of the earth.

Yes! For even among the Nation States, this shall begin to take place, for the wealth of the wicked has been laid up for the righteous.

I tell you, the borrower will become the lender, and the lender will become the borrower.

I say watch! For Sheep Nations will be arise from among them to receive The Crown of The Lion of Judah, and they will rule over them with The Sceptre of Kingship.

And I say, Watch! As Goat Nations emerge, for a thick dense smoke and deep darkness shall cover them like a heavy blanket, as the fires of the great dragon shall engulf them, and the blind will lead the blind into the pit of destruction!”

Now, as I was listening and continued watching the Vision unfold, suddenly I saw the Gold Coin falling towards the ground.

As the Coin hit the floor in the midst of The Valley of Nations, I watched as the Gold Coin rolled, and then began to spin, violently.

It spun with such great speed, that my eyes could no longer see the Coin, and I heard these Words, 

“Watch! As the Whirlwind of My Spirit now moves in the midst of The Nations in The Valley of Decision.

For economic structures will crash and financial markets will spin, and stocks and shares of the wicked shall fall and never recover.

But watch, as in the midst of MY great Global Reset, the righteous will prosper in a time of great economic instability and uncertainty, for now a simultaneous move of My Spirit shall now take place, and many will cry, ‘Change! Change has come! For the light shines in Goshen, and this is that which has been prophesied!’ ”

Blessings to you all.

A prophetic word to ‘The Seven Mountains’ – Veronika West

Two-part vision of rotten roots beneath nations: Mercy is the Tap-Root – Veronika West

Last week Veronika received a vision in great depth, which reiterates previous ones as well as complementing my musing upon the Lord starting to expose rotten politics in UK, USA & EU – and that’s what He’s been doing since in 2016! 

It’s also appropriate with regard to this morning’s post on The Writing on the Wall and the Biden family and makes an important implicit reference to ‘the plumb-line’, about which I’d blogged an essential spiritual difference between Donald Trump and ‘China Joe’ Biden regarding pre-natal infanticide; one is strongly pro-life, the ‘puppet’ supports murder at full-term! (See Two President Prophecy coming to pass: Can the dis-United States of America be a trustworthy ally and keep its place as Global Leader?)

Here’s what she published in two parts on His Kingdom Prophecy on Thursday and Friday 2-3 December:

AMERICA; MERCY, MERCY, MERCY IS THE TAP-ROOT (Part 1)

“Mercy, Mercy, Mercy is The Tap Root! I say again and again, Mercy is The Tap Root!”

America, last night I fell into a deep sleep and The LORD took me into a place — a realm and dimension of The Spirit — that I cannot begin to explain fully in words what I saw there, but it was a place in what felt like the deep underground systems of the Nations.

It was as if I was caught up in a world-wide web of roots. I was taken deep below ground, under the Nations of the earth. Continue reading

Weekend catch-up: Trump on God, 9/11, AZ election audit, Fauci and Wuhan lab

Last night I re-read a prophetic word Amanda Grace received on 1st September and  this time realised it confirms what I stated 11 months ago (20th October) about Donald Trump giving glory to God during his electioneering, and the promise from God written into Holy Scripture for so doing. Then this morning I see the first item below, as posted last night in USA :

“There Is Only One True Answer to the Depth and Evil that We Saw on 9-11. It is God.” President Trump Shares the Answer to All our Problems

‘…At the 41:00 minute mark President Trump says:

“You have no idea what God has calling for you.  You have no idea where you’re going and in some cases you don’t know why.  But He needs you, He needs me, He needs all of us.  Tonight Fr. Mike’s words remind us that there is only one true answer to the depth and evil that we saw on September 11.  It is God.  That is the answer that stood tall over the wreckage at Ground Zero where rescuers forged the mighty steel cross from the Towers’ broken beams.”

Even so,

DO YOU KNOW 9/11 WAS FORETOLD 10 YEARS EARLIER ON 9/11/1991?

Read the Lord’s direct word here: “The Foundations of the Earth Will Rock!”

Firefighters and Police Officers Break Into Cheers as Trump Makes Surprise Visit to NYC on 20th Anniversary of 9/11 (VIDEO)

WHAT A CONTRAST – President Trump’s emphasis versus President Bush’s diatribe:

‘…The only president who delivered a formal speech on 9/11 was former President George W. Bush. And it was terrible – in two ways. First, Bush’s speech was as much about decrying today’s political divisions as it was about remembering the events of Sept 11. But Bush showed an astonishing lack of self-awareness of the role his own actions played in creating those divisions. And second, Bush helped widen those divisions by endorsing a Rachel Maddow-esque argument that an equivalence exists between the plane-hijacking, murderous terrorists of Sept. 11, 2001, and the Capitol rioters of Jan. 6, 2021 — a comparison that has no basis in fact but has done much to sour the national debate….’

FOOTNOTE Re TGP:

In case you’re wondering, my reasons for often quoting The Gateway Pundit are not political – although it may seem so!  Not only does its team cover these special issues  consistently in depth, being well-informed on the deep-state, but also its links copy and paste very easily into a graphic, rather than textual url, thereby conveying the message quickly and concisely – however, unlike others, image sizes cannot be adjusted.

Incremental steps to Hell – Neil Mackereth (GPS #55.3 & 56.1)

Further to my re-blog of last Thursday of Mario Murillo on lies Christians tell and hear and my writing on satanic strategy and nest of snakes, Neil follows (hence God’s GPS) with:

“In this time of startling exposure and Machiavellian intrigue I have had another “download” of information. It moved me powerfully! Yes, a very similar theme to Naomi’s word, my picture was of a huge mass of writhing snakes piled high and expanding.

“I also felt a significant time-line link to earlier pictures of the snake-like tentacles of Leviathan trying to hold UK in permanent bondage to the EU and needing to be cut right through to enable us to fulfill our destiny as a sanctuary (refuge) Nation.”

INCREMENTAL STEPS TO HELL

Choose This Day Whom You Will Follow

The poison in the US political infrastructure and administrative institutions, involves a deeply embedded web of deceit and deception that is supported by a sophisticated and persuasive propaganda machine. The deep-state corruption is so intricately interwoven into all levels of the body politic, the legal system, the security services, the corporate entities that control the economy, and the billionaire elite who are the puppet masters, that it is well-nigh indestructible. The skill and ruthlessness of these Machiavellian and mafia-like manipulators is both shocking and truly demonic.

These all-pervading deceptions include a determination to fulfil the liberal agenda by a process of seemingly reasonable incremental steps. This staged persuasion approach and “next steps” policy is designed to change mind-sets, and has allowed things we thought of as abhorrent a few years ago to be moved to accepted ‘norm’ status. It gets worse, the rights of groups with perverse and unsavoury ideas have been protected in law and, in their new found “authority”, they now demand that we support and encourage their views.  To do otherwise invokes a whirlwind of abuse.

Currently, the USA is the spotlight battleground for fraud and deception and progressive liberalism. However, the same poison is clearly visible throughout the western democracies and beyond. The ultimate aim, which is only understood by a few, is for the World to worship Satan. At the moment, we are in the early stages: the ground is being prepared for a “Great Reset” and a new “One World Order”. Watch for the seemingly reasonable and logical incremental steps that will usher in totalitarianism, a world leader and a world government. 

Delay is possible, as President Trump has demonstrated. However. the Lord showed me a picture of a black serpentine mass, piled high and growing like an expanding pyramid of writhing snakes, which had innumerable web like connections. The network is so strong that even if a part is damaged, it will only cause a minor delay while a tactical readjustment, or rerouting round the problem, overcomes the hinderance: the long-term strategic goals of the Illuminati will not be affected.

The Lord described the serpentine pyramid as the new Tower of Babel, presently intent on glorifying man, but really being used as a stepping-stone towards the deification of Satan. I saw a sharp two-edged sword descending from heaven to cleave the mass of writhing snakes in two. The Sword, which is the Spirit of the Word of God, will cause a divide, a safe space for a great revival. The Lord explained that, after this temporary respite, the enemy will regroup and take forward the events prophesied in End-Times Scripture.

Fear not, what is about to happen is all part of God’s End-Time agenda. The final harvest (the great revival) will be followed be the rise of the Antichrist. His forces of evil, having gained great confidence as they expand their grip on the world, will be drawn to the place chosen by God. The place where the armies of God, led by Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, will destroy the Antichrist and his forces.

These things are ordained, they are not hidden to those who have eyes to see.

Is Donald Trump’s heart for God’s Kingdom? – part 3 : personal faith

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” (John 17:20-23 NKJV)

Of myself: born and baptised in Roman Catholicism but when an adult became anti-church; but blessed to be saved and born-again by and baptised in the Holy Spirit, I regard myself as being non-denomination and desire the manifestation of the above prayer by My Saviour Jesus the Messiah.

And guess what? I find Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, is in the same boat with me – ie. non-denominational – as we shall soon see!

RECAP

So let’s quickly recap thus far on this posts’ specific topic. We’re examining the claim from British pastors’ perspective that, as reported superficially by biased media, there are grounds for doubting Donald Trump has “the values of Jesus or a heart for His Kingdom.”

However, my blog’s historical data reports:
  • Trump is honoured, supported and prayed for by black churches, one bishop of which attended his Inauguration.
  • Prayer played a major role in his Inauguration, which featured more religious leaders than any other inauguration in history.
  • Independent editor based in the White House reported, “I rejoice at the change because it has been very tough being in the White House press corps the last eight years…Fortunately, Trump, Pence…and the nominees are very pro-Christian, pro-Evangelical and pro-Israel. This is truly a new day for believers in Yeshua.”
  • Furthermore, “not since Ronald Reagan’s presidency have all Christians been so welcome in every area of the White House as they are under Trump & VP. Pence.”

An inserted re-blog from the ‘Never-Trump’ author Joel Rosenberg tells what changed his mind and how he told President Trump when ‘Veep’ Pence took him to meet him in the Oval Office:

“Sir, if you accomplish nothing else for the rest of your term, you will go down in history as the most pro-life and pro-Israel president in the history of the country. And I just want to say, on behalf of my wife and me, thank you.”  The President seemed moved. Then I noted the Bible commands believers to “pray for kings and all those in authority.”

“I want you to know, sir, that I have prayed for you and your family every day since you took the Oath of Office.”

“Thank you, Joel,” Trump replied. “That means a lot to me.”

OCTOBER 2020

1.  One of my regular readers in New Zealand responded to Part 2 by informing me of comments by Revd Bill Johnson, pastor of Bethel Church, California, about Trump:

“For me it is worthy of note that I’ve never seen a president who loved prayer as much as Donald Trump — and that includes from those I voted for and those I didn’t,” Johnson, who regularly preaches on revival and the Holy Spirit, said. “His passion for godly counsel is also legendary. His historic actions for Israel should appeal to believers, as the biblical mandate to pray supportively for Jerusalem is a clear priority in scripture.”

‘Explaining that he isn’t trying to coerce anyone or tell them who to vote for, Johnson said he believes Trump “is the only one who isn’t owned by either party, and is fully capable through courage and boldness to bring about the changes needed.”

2.  Religion News Service report of 19th October Both Candidates Went To Church This Weekend; Their Experiences Were Very Different makes for interesting reading and includes a brief prophetic word given to President and First Lady Trump.

3.  An exclusive and extensive interview with RNS published 23rd October reveals,

‘President Trump said in a written statement that he no longer identifies as a Presbyterian and now sees himself as a non-denominational Christian. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump, who has repeatedly identified as a Presbyterian in the past, said in a written response to RNS. 

‘Saying that his parents “taught me the importance of faith and prayer from a young age,” Trump went on to say that “Melania and I have gotten to visit some amazing churches and meet with great faith leaders from around the world. During the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, I tuned into several virtual church services and know that millions of Americans did the same.”

‘The revelation about Trump’s religious identity appeared in an interview that was conducted in writing and covered a variety of faith topics, ranging from the president’s own spiritual life to his plans for the White House office tasked with engaging faith groups.’

4.  In President Trump: “Our Rights Do Not Come From Government, They Come From God” Gary Bower at LifeNews.com examines RNS interview’s five questions put to him:

  1. Last week you gave reference to thanking God that you had COVID. What did you learn spiritually during your COVID experience?
  2. You are regularly associated with influential Evangelical leaders what have you learned from them spiritually?
  3. Given the support you have received from evangelical Christians in particular, do you consider yourself to be an evangelical Christian and, why or why not?
  4. What have you done to help persecuted Christians around the world?
  5. You have continued the efforts of past administrations to have a “faith-based office.” What specific results have been produced by the Faith and Opportunity Initiative since you established it in 2018 and what do you expect it to accomplish in the coming years?

CONCLUSION

I trust my readers will be surprised and encouraged to join me in visiting the above links to learn more about President Trump’s renewed faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. May the Lord be the Trumps’ strong tower and keep them secure during this vital election.

Next, we’ll be surprised to note how Trump has put his faith into action as a politician!

Hopeful yet warning word for 2020 and beyond – restructuring!

I’m grateful to my friend Geoffrey Pick of UK Prophetic Words when discussing Yinka’s vision of 2016 for reminding me about and permitting republication of this prophecy which describes unexpected, radical changes 2020 has seen thus far.:

PROPHETIC WORD FOR 2020  – AND BEYOND

I saw a big city. Many high rise buildings that had been standing for a very long time suddenly collapsed and crumbled. In place of those disappearing structures I saw new buildings emerge instantly and very quickly. I felt there was going to be an exchange of structures and functions. This could relate to business, economy, political roles and much more.

The year 2020 will bring upheaval and powerful, swift emergence of new things. Long-established structures will crumble suddenly, not because of external destruction but because they have been in a state of decay for too long. In their place, new ‘towers’, buildings, positions, organisations and people will rise up quickly and with great strength.

This will cause a lot of disorientation to those who are used to the old structures and who are unprepared and undiscerning. It will, however, not be a big surprise to the people who walk very closely with God. They will have anticipated this according to Amos 3:7 “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets”.

People will generally struggle with disorientation as many landmarks they have used as reference points will be gone and other structures will be in place. The people of God, however, will have an opportunity like never before to reassure, give guidance and introduce God’s divine compass. Many people will listen to them, however those with severe pride and hard hearts will dismiss them and continue to try and find their way in their own strength. This will trip them up, injure them and the consequences will be severe in some cases.

Dead religion will feel more cold and carry the air of dark, icy death more than ever. Superficial religion will cause people to feel sick as if having eaten too much candy floss which pleases the taste buds but does nothing to nourish the body. True worship and the places of gathering where true worship is lifted up will have a new warmth and light that is more recognisable and distinguishable than ever before. Those who are hungry and humble of heart will flock to these places and cause the light to glow brighter and warmer.

This is a year of intense separation, and those who have camped on the middle-ground for a long time will find that it is no longer comfortable but utterly dangerous. The middle-ground will split and darkness will starkly separate from light, causing a deep trench to be created. It will be dangerous for those who refuse to choose. Even for those who choose blatant darkness there is greater hope of deliverance as the people of God will seek to establish flexible bridges to enable a crossing from darkness to the light. Those who have been camping in the middle, refusing to move, will fall into the trench which will widen and deepen fast. I saw the trench floor covered in tar pitch which will hold people down very powerfully and cruelly. It will be very, very challenging to leave that place.

Wrong priorities and choices will be a lot more costly in the days to come. Right, God-breathed choices will bring great blessing and reward. Dependence on the Spirit of God for EVERYTHING is absolutely vital.

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” 

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” 

Revelation 22:12 “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

Susie Molina, 31st December 2019

Note:  Revd John Kilpatrick was instructed by the Lord: “Tell The People There’s No Middle-ground Any More!” in February 2017.

Searching for wrong ‘truth’ traps me in a spiritual prison

(2nd of 7) We continue our ‘journey’ as I pray it will inform readers who are not-yet Christians about avoiding the pitfalls and dangers of suspect spiritual matters:

Me 1962

1962 in Leicester.

The intellectual freedom of higher education in the ‘swinging 60’s’ enabled me to break loose from the values of my parents and their generation. Even so, I recognised their values had enabled them to come through the destruction and deprivation of the Great Depression, World War and post-war Britain austerity with great fortitude.

As in the previous post about attending the “wrong school”, a formative influence upon this boy of the post-war ‘baby boom’ was the disharmony and hypocrisy between churches. In my mind it tarred all Christians with the same brush and badly reflected upon the God they believed in.

Nevertheless, once whilst in church, I had thought it must have been awesome to have been around Jesus and seen everything He said and did.

Also, two verses noticed in my mother’s Sunday Missal stuck in my mind and, although buried in the unconscious, they never got forgotten. One was Jesus telling his disciples they’d do even greater works than He was doing! The other was by someone who’d seen and been with Jesus, and who wrote: If everything He’d done was written down there wouldn’t be enough room in the world to contain the books! [John 14:12 and closing sentence of that Gospel.]

In view of that eye-witness account and churches’ misrepresentation of their founder, I became convinced a lot of what he’d taught had been lost – or even suppressed – by the early church. Continue reading

‘Atheism is down as UK gets spiritual’

Noteworthy news, in view of not only the Smith Wigglesworth, Darnall and Alec prophecies and numerous later prophetic words/visions and prayer calls, but also the ‘tipping point’ foretold 6 months ago in ‘The Choice’.

Call The Nation To Prayer

Atheism is down as UK gets spiritual – says the headline of an article reporting on a recent survey, appearing in The Times newspaper on Friday 28th December 2018.

Atheism is down - Times article 281218Click here to open article as a PDF document

Pete Greig, founder and Team Leader of 24-7 Prayer, has just published the following remarks about this article on his Instagram account. (Click here to view on Instagram).

‘Just to be clear what we’re seeing here:
– British atheism —> declining (-2-3% p.a. for 3 yrs)
– British church attendance —> growing
– British people who pray —> growing. .
Are these signs of revival in the UK? Not yet. Atheists (and some regular church-goers) are ‘merely’ becoming nominal believers in ‘a greater spiritual power’, not necessarily in Jesus Christ; they are attending church occasionally, but not regularly; they are turning to prayer, but only sporadically.

So, is this everything we…

Hatred, like beauty, may be in the eye of the beholder; cowardice, complicity and the Church of England!

Revd Gavin’s satirical latest slots in well with this blog’s recent items, showing it’s now time for REAL Christians to take a firm, loving stand against the stupidity arising from apostasy and pig-ignorance.

Gavin Ashenden

Denouncing your neighbour for a ‘thought-crime’ was a favourite past time in the old Soviet Union. The problem for anyone accused of having the ‘wrong thoughts’ is that it’s impossible to defend yourself.

Well the practice is back. ‘Hate crime’ is the new thought crime. If someone else’s views makes you feel uncomfortable, all you need to do is to accuse them of either ‘hate’ or, if you prefer, ‘extremism’, or best of all, both.

The latest seed bed of hate-filled extremism has been lurking undiscovered for the last 16 years in a Primary School, in Tunbridge Wells.

With psychological and social consequences that surely defy imagination, a generation of children have been infected by ‘hate’ at the hands of an extremist organisation masquerading as a Christian charity.

For 16 years this charity called Crossteach has been sowing ‘hate’ and ‘extremism’ under the pretence of pretending to help local C…

To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’? That’s the Big Ben question as the nation waits…

August is renowned as the ‘silly season’ for odd and weird stories because of the holiday period’s dearth of normal, newsworthy events. Yesterday’s banner headline shown below seems simply part of that season because of the Health & Safety aspects – but that belies the status of a significant symbol of our nation’s identity.

The disruption of our famous clock’s mechanism strikes at our heart but not necessarily for the reasons stated in the Telegraph, its editorial and news of MPs’ anger at being kept in the dark over details of the proposed work!  [Today: Theresa May says “It can’t be right for Big Ben to be silenced for four years”.]

Regular readers of this blog are well aware not only of Big Ben’s symbolic importance but also and more especially of the many words and dreams about it at the prophetical ‘midnight hour’. So whatever the outcome of the present rumpus, it won’t surprise the Lord for He could be in the discussions and use them to bring about His purposes, or else work around them to achieve His sovereign will for Britain, thereby getting us fully ‘in sync’ with His will. (As in the word for 2014-16 brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone in her ‘Clarion Call’.)

Tuesday 15 August ‘Final’ morning broadsheet edition (tap for digital version)

It wasn’t until later yesterday that I caught up with news and activity on this blog and was very pleased to notice a number of past posts had shot into the popular posts listing. So, I stuck them temporarily to the home page for quick reference and now replace them with this post.

A summary of some points which may be applicable should thus prove useful:

  • R Piercey 2016-17 – “…Interesting in view of the picture I received some years ago of the Lion of Judah hovering over Big Ben; his huge paw was about to hit the clock face, where the hands pointed at 2 minutes to midnight. (I somehow knew it was midnight rather than midday).” …I believe it’s now important to share more widely what Rosemary added. Upon phoning for permission to publish today she responded without any hesitation, “Absolutely! now’s the time!”…“A few notes on the picture that hit me this morning. Someone whose opinion I value gave me a word a few weeks ago that I was a General in the King’s army; this morning I was led to read the story of Gideon again, and was reminded of his requests from God for signs. I then asked the Lord for a sign that would confirm whether or not the “General” word was true. After a short time a very vivid picture came to me of a huge bowl suspended on 3 chains above the Houses of Parliament; the bowl swung in the winds of secularism and resulting godless laws. I felt the Lord saying that this was a bowl of his wrath, which of course is a recurrent theme in the Bible – bowl, cup etc. This is not to negate in any way the positive prophecies we are receiving; many of us know that the spiritual atmosphere has changed, and we are seeing remarkable answers to prayer in our country. Nevertheless we are also called to repent, especially for what has happened in the churches, and I feel a huge urgency for this; we are in danger of losing the blessings if we are simply going to rest on the blessings. This is vitally important and I feel there is no time to lose; the bowl is tipping, and we could feel the results at any time.”
  • RB/TPuccio, Feb 2017 – ‘Today, as I prepare this compilation I draw Tony’s attention to Rosemary’s reminder on the previous blog of her picture of Big Ben and he asks for my ‘take’ on this and “What’s the Lord saying to you?” Well I didn’t have time to even think and ask Him, but was just running with my spirit’s ‘gut instinct’ as a ‘joiner of prophetic dots’ (as Glasgow calls me). So I reply that I’m busy compiling this account and will seek Him later – BUT then get a quick nudge to add, “‘…immediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now! Tony replies, “Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.”
  • T Puccio March 2017 – “I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.’  
  • C Shamp June 2017 – Keep your eyes upon Big Ben something supernatural is about to be seen. As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say, “My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Please note full historical listing including relevance to the 2005 & 2017 terrorist attacks plus informative contributions in Dreams & Visions of Big Ben at the Midnight Hour. Also consider reading, Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben.

Let us take all those words received and delivered to the Lord in prayer and wait upon Him.

Lastly, it’s particularly fascinating the change in the clock’s chiming set for 21st August is one month to the day before Rosh Hashana, the ‘head of year’ for Jewish New Year 5778, with its unconnected relevance to Biblical End-times prophesied in  1 Thess 5:3 – ‘(The Day of the Lord will come…) while people are saying “Peace and Safety”…!!

Vision and report of change in N Korea’s president and people

We have a couple of encouraging developments relating to the major prophetic words of last January and April and a recent vision of North Korea’s president Kim Jon-ung.

First, the Telegraph’s report Kim-Jon-ung ‘no longer seen as god’ as worshiping North Koreans ‘place their faith elsewhere’.:

The extremely harsh treatment meted out to anyone practising anything other than the state’s form of communism and deification of its presidents has been confirmed by a defector who’s since become a member of the Seoul-based Worldwide Coalition to Stop Genocide in North Korea. According to the report,

 “Officially sanctioned persecution of people for religious reasons is still there and, I would say, even stronger than before”. But subtle changes are slowly becoming visible, said the defector, who declined to be named as he is active in assisting underground churches operating in the North.

“In the past, the people were told to worship the Kim family as their god, but many North Koreans no longer respect Kim Jong-un”, he said. “That means they are looking for something else to sustain their faith.

 “In some places, that has led to the emergence of shamens, but the Christian church is also growing and deepening its roots there”, he said.

“Even though people know they could be sent to prison – or worse – they are still choosing to worship, and that means that more cracks are appearing in the regime and the system”, he added.

Secondly, a Nebuchadnezzar-type vision and prophetic word on Kim Jong-ung and featuring two prominent Christians is recounted by Veronica West on 11 August.

The two seen praying with him are Bill Johnson of Bethel California and South African Rodney Howard-Browne.

NOTES:

Are traditional, Bible-believing Christians the new heretics??

Based upon the widespread bigotry expressed over PM May’s post-election decision on forming a working majority, Voice for Justice UK follows up on the request to petition the government about free speech for Christians in Parliament with this further appeal:

THERE IS A NEW HERESY

‘To ensure a functioning Parliamentary majority Theresa May concludes a deal with the DUP; in the interests of transparency publishes the agreement in full; and is immediately accused of giving them a ‘bung’.  Criticisms abound, especially from the Welsh and Scottish Assemblies, who would also like more money – no surprise there then.  But surely the most pernicious and worrying criticisms come from those who attack the DUP for their unashamedly Christian stance on moral issues that the UK has now ideologically redefined, and imposed by law.

‘Ex-Tory chairman Chris Patten has reportedly predicted that the ‘toxic brand’ of the DUP will taint Theresa May and harm the Conservative party, specifically identifying the DUP’s hard-line stance on issues such as gay equality (see for example, Evening Standard).

‘How is it people today can so easily be branded toxic, intolerant, and bigoted simply because they adhere to the traditional teachings of Christianity, and refuse to endorse abortion, or same sex marriage?   As far as can be ascertained, the DUP have never at any time expressed ‘hatred’ for those who support such choices: they have simply said they disagree, citing as cause the moral incompatibility of such practices with Christian faith.

‘As it is, the universal condemnation and vilification of this identifiably ‘Christian’ party by gay marriage supporters, so strongly articulated by the likes of Chris Patten and Ruth Davidson – who demanded and was given assurance that there would be no rescission of LGBTI rights – speaks volumes.

Who are the real bigots here?  Who the real peddlers of hatred and intolerance? 

‘Sadly, what we are seeing is nothing less than the systemic demonization of Christians by those who want justification and social endorsement of the new morality, and who want to drive all expression of Christianity from the public arena.

‘As stressed previously: Christian faith is being increasingly suppressed by the relentless drive of Secular and LGBT activists. It is time for the intolerance, bigotry and intimidation of these so-called liberals to be exposed.’

Christians, it’s time to PETITION FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Further to my call three weeks ago today in Time to take a stand against the fascism of ‘Christophobia’ and Revd Gavin Ashenden’s First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you, it’s time to protect Christian MPs’ and our rights to free speech.

Gavin exposed the inclusion of the Qur’an in the Eucharist at Glasgow Cathedral, and we are seeing Christians increasingly ridiculed and vilified in the public arena before the relentless drive of Secular and LGBTQ activism.

Therefore and for the good of the nation, the time has come to stand against activists’ schemes to suppress Christian belief across the public sphere AND in our personal lives, as is well-known and documented.

Please read Voice for Justice UK’s following email and seriously consider petitioning to ‘Protect Christian MPs Right to Free Speech. Don’t Allow Secular and LGBT Activists to Suppress Christian belief‘.:

‘Christian faith is being increasingly suppressed by the relentless drive of Secular and LGBTQ activists.

‘It is time for the intolerance, bigotry and intimidation of so-called liberals to be exposed.

‘Following delivery of our petition calling for the reinstatement of former Tory MP for the Isle of Wight Andrew Turner – forced to resign for saying he believed homosexuality was wrong and a danger to society – we are now launching a fresh campaign calling for the government to  protect the right to free speech of all current and future Christian MPs.

‘Standing on Articles 9 and 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998 – respectively protecting the rights to freedom of thought, belief, and religion; and the freedom to hold and express your own opinions – we assert the right to follow and practise without impediment or restraint our Christian faith, and to express without fear of condemnation or intimidation the core beliefs on which our faith is founded and as set down in the Bible.

We call for freedom of belief and of speech for all.

‘And we call for all political parties to uphold the right of both current and future MPs to express support for traditional Christian belief, without fear of intimidation by activist groups seeking to silence dissent by unjustified accusations of bigotry and hatred.’

First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you!

Tim Farron is not just a former leader of the Liberal Party; he has become a mirror in which we see our reflection as a society. He is gagged and sacked.

Revd Gavin Ashenden, a stalwart servant of the Lord in the CoE, brings a forthright alert to ALL Christians in Britain > First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you. 

Salvation comes to Hindu and Muslim

As well as circulating email news to church leaders of ‘An Awakening Season’, as in the previous post, Michael Marcel also separately reported how salvation came to two people of other faiths.:

Testimony (email 29th April)
A Hindu woman was walking in Leicester last week. She had struggled with depression for a long time and she saw in a vision a man dressed in white walk up to her and say, “Go to the house on your street with number 2 on it and a woman there will tell you how to restore your heavy heart”.
She went straight home, walked down her street to house number 2 and a Christian lady who has been saved out of the Hindu faith answered the door bell. She told this woman the vision of the man in white, and the lady promptly shared the gospel and prayed for her. She was saved and healed and came to church the following day! She is now sharing her new-found faith with her family; all of them have seen that she is no longer depressed and want to know what happened.
 
God is definitely on the move in this nation!
Another Testimony (email 1st May)
A Muslim man in Leicester had a dream; in the dream he saw a man dressed in white standing next to a cross, the man in white told him to go to the clock tower tomorrow at 12pm and a man who (will be) standing there will tell you what you must do.

The next day he went to town and found a street preacher at the clock tower, he told the preacher his dream and was then saved as a result. The same night this Muslim man had a dream that his sister in the Middle-East had a similar dream, except she was told to call her brother in the evening, On phoning her brother told her what had happened and shared the gospel and she was saved!

Thank and praise you Lord for what you are doing in bringing not-yet-believers into the Kingdom.

Advent True Story: part 1 – Day Visitor Barred

In Memory of all deceased and bereaved persons throughout the world who have been so tragically affected by Islamist terrorism this year. I pray this and the previous post will encourage visitors to this site to take their life and after-life more seriously, thereby accepting the free gift of life everlasting through Jesus Christ:

Sunday 29th November marked the beginning of Advent; a period of excitement  preparing to celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth in ancient Bethlehem, Judea – the First Advent. But in fact there’s more! The focus on the first Sunday of Advent is upon His promised return, the Second Advent. So it is also a time of waiting expectantly. I’m pleasantly surprised that the emphasis in secular Wikipedia’s Advent entry isn’t upon Jesus’ birth, but upon His return.

As stated in a recent post, events are increasingly aligning with the anticipated fulfilment of several ancient biblical prophecies of the Day of the Lord.  Commensurate therefore, this means the return of Jesus must also be rapidly approaching.

Many Moons Ago…

a messenger was sent on a mission to a village nestled where hills would have met had a river not burst between them. Here was the only crossing, a toll bridge, as this strong river wended its way eastwards between low hills, wooded on the north and arable on the south side, down the narrow valley and towards the country’s capital fifty miles downstream.

It was the sixth month of the final year, of the penultimate decade, of the last century, of the second millennium since the birth of Jesus Christ and the messenger bore an invitation to all who would welcome him.

Peter, a dark-haired young man, knocked upon my front door and asked if anyone would like to hear the world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham in Earls Court, London. We’d be conveyed by coach from our house! The fare from west of Reading? Nada, entirely free!

I turned down the offer but my almost-teenage son piped up that he’d like to go because a classmate had told him about it. So I said I’d take him.

Were it my choice, however, I most definitely would not have accepted. Experience had made me extremely wary of churchgoers. But never did I suspect my personal life hung on that moment.

Why the problem?

I was brought up in the Catholic Church yet attended non-secular state schools with their Anglican ethos. Back in the 1950s this was a sensitive issue. In those days many more attended church of one sort or another than today. Religious beliefs are a minor concern now, even though attendance at faith schools is prized for educational purposes.

Note well, I did not receive the required, proper Catholic education. What was gained was merely through church attendance – which doesn’t do anything when the services are in a dead, foreign language!

Sunday Mass involved a lot of liturgical Latin. So when English was spoken, this boy was able to comprehend a little from frequent snippets from the Gospels. I recall pondering how awesome it would have been to witness everything Jesus said and did.

Fifty years ago the hypocritical conflict between denominations was the reason I turned to ‘New Age’ ideals. In view of what Christian priests said and did then, how could what they  preached be true? Jesus commanded his followers to “love one another”. However, from my personal experience, as well as the historical facts, churches did not!

Also, they weren’t performing miraculous works similar to those Jesus did, as he said they would. So, churches were failing on both counts to live up to their founder’s commands. Although I was only a boy it was patently obvious that they missed the mark. Also, I strongly suspected they’d probably lost a lot of what Jesus had taught too.

So in my late teens I went looking for truth elsewhere and practised yoga, meditation and Eastern religions long before that became popular through the famous Beatles and their maharishi. In seeking deeper instruction and practical abilities I joined an ancient, mystical brotherhood. Thus, I gained direct knowledge of ‘higher’ esoteric teachings, including a belief in reincarnation and karma as well as experiencing invisibility and nirvana, the ecstatic state sought by Buddhists.

All this was before such New Age concepts became as popular and widespread as they became in the Hippy era. Twenty-odd years later I’d find myself attending an evangelical meeting!  Utterly unbelievable!

What happened?

So in those days I regarded most clergy as outmoded. Their preaching couldn’t compare with what I’d discovered in the New Age. So, you could imagine my astonishment upon finding myself agreeing with everything Billy Graham preached!  I was flummoxed!

Afterwards, as a follow-up, those who’d been on the trip were invited to an informal meeting at a local church. They explained we could have introductory teaching and discussion at home and I agreed to be on-hand for my son, but I wasn’t interested. Peter, as a youth worker, was assigned to help him but, in practice, he ended up discussing the material with me.

So, what went wrong?

The evening of Wednesday 14th September 1989, is Peter’s third visit to chat through a script about Christianity entitled Life. I hadn’t yet divulged my firm opinions to him, but this time he goes too far!

This session is on ‘Yoga, Eastern Religions and The Occult’ – all of which I knew about and been involved in since before Peter had been born!

Peter shows a diagram of two cliff-like objects facing one another. One represents heaven and the other, earth, with a large deep gap separating them from one another. Over this Peter then places an overlay depicting a large + sign over the gap. The horizontal ends of the + touch each object, thereby bridging heaven and earth. He explains that the cross of Christ is the bridge between both realms.

He then says the only way to God is through Jesus Christ. This statement implies my ideas are incorrect. Without giving the game away I gently question him on this. But he insists there are not many paths leading to the same supreme mind, or God.

What’s to be done with a young man half my age who unwittingly points out the error of my ways?

I think, “He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. How can he, who’s not done anything I know far more about…just how can he tell me it’s wrong?  He’s wasting my time!”

Peter’s ideas are not only mistaken but also intolerant. Before the end of the evening I’ve had enough!

So I bring our discussion to an early close, politely bid him farewell and excuse myself from any future meeting. As ever, Peter is most gracious about it – he smiles politely and goes on his way.

But little did I know that I may not make it through the night!
