Prophetic ‘castle’ words and pictures now coming into play

Several readers have commented or emailed me on the timeliness of the word from Liz Evans in her Call to pray for our nation and establish God’s rule.

It is undated and thereby avoids attribution of dating or thinking its ‘dated’, or it’s gone stale. After all, the Lord looks over His word to ensure it achieves its purpose and thus doesn’t return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). This word brought by Liz was received several years ago, but we’ll connect the ‘prophetic dots’ or ‘jigsaw pieces’ and examine them as being evidence from the Lord as to that word being timely for 2018.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

Many regulars will be familiar with my use of godly coincidences as a tool in receiving, checking and testing prophetic words and visions. The scriptural warrant for doing so is quite clear but new readers wishing to investigate further are directed to ‘The Protocol of Prophecies’ in An Introduction to Prophecy.


At about five past five last Sunday afternoon I found myself nodding in agreement with pastor John Kilpatrick at Church of His Presence saying the Lord has been giving him prophetic words for each new year…but it was the actual date that made me nod:

“It started in 2009 when the Lord first gave me a prophetic word. We waited on the Lord for the New Year and when He left I just got a download…” (listen from 1:03:00 here)

I was pleased to get a confirmation from a pastor that 2009 had been the start of a prophetic process for him too. Yet for me it had been a ‘need’ to write on the prophetic. Moreover, I’d been unconscious to a specific thread that had been sewn throughout the years until recently, when another sudden shower of serendipity surrounded me with ‘jigsaw pieces’ – just like snowflakes lying around my feet!

This time, it gave me grounds to get out my old files from 2009-10.  And this wasn’t the first time buttons had been pressed to open up and relive my visual memory.

The first such ‘re-opening’ had come after debating an issue at Prophecy Today in mid-December. A confirmatory word brought by Brett Dewey had plugged so powerfully into one of mine in 2011 when I’d had a very vivid dream relating to Bill Johnson’s prophecy on that 3rd September being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK. Brett’s dream in December 2017 showed that what ‘our’ dreams cover is now at the next stage of active unveiling – God-incidents Validate Three Prophetic Visions refers.

[Moreover, Brett’s earlier vision of a beach and wall has strong similarities to details in a personal prophecy given to me by Bath’s team in 2005 when we met Liz.]


The second ‘re-opening’ of my visual memory came last week from Tony Puccio after I’d joked in his second England Ablaze about his ‘spiritual observatory’ in Tucson, Arizona. On Wednesday 3rd he kindly sent me a file with covering note simply saying,  ‘Thought this might interest you’ – Wot! – a HUGE understatement!

Kitt Peak National Observatory outside Tucson (RB 4.2008)

In view of a couple of dreams he’d had about an inevitable change of monarch, I’d already put him in touch with a group of intercessors, who’d kindly supplied some historical prophecies on the royal family. It included a transcript of Liz Evan’s Word for UK.

I replied to Tony: ‘Re your…attachment that MIGHT interest me Tony!! It MOST certainly does, as explained below – I’m extremely grateful you’ve kept me in the loop on this…as its re-connecting me and taking me ‘full circle’…

‘…we often went to Bath City Church as it’s very special to us since 2002 (we married 6 months later) and it’s where we connected into the prophetic and met Sharon Stone and Liz Evans very soon afterwards.  Liz’s website is endorsed by a close friend of ours.’

I copied Liz into that reply and, after greeting her, wrote, ‘Tony’s attachment of the ‘Call’ you brought and its reference to castles immediately opened up my visual memory to the time several years ago I told you of the angels on battlements I saw close by Bath City Church.  Think I may also have emailed you on what I’d sensed of Windsor Castle being a connection between heaven and earth and then sharing that with Sharon six years ago next month!  (I didn’t know she’d soon move there)

‘Only last weekend did we watch episode 5 of The Crown (on Netflix) and noted its very close attention to detail of the ‘secret ceremony’ of Her Majesty being anointed during her Coronation, and to which your article refers. (My Her Majesty’s 90th birthday also refers.)’


I find in my personal prophecies papers that I’d emailed Liz on 18 March 2010, after our attending BCC’s Partner’s Day and wanting to discuss that weekend: ‘Yesterday was most encouraging and exciting, especially in what you said about castles and Magna Carta for I believe it may be relevant to some things that popped up over the last year… it develops upon the vision that Sharon weighed at her school [in Bath] a few years ago.’

There wasn’t time at the next weekend school to discuss, so I followed up with the details of what I’d seen in 2009, as may be read in this scanned email:

Liz replied, “Fantastic, definitely worth weighing” but I don’t recall seeing a paper version of what she’d shared. However, someone had transcribed it from her ‘Prophecy in the UK’ session at 2010 Release Conference in Bristol with Bill Johnson (him again!) and Mark Stibbe. A copy of that came from Tony, but Liz kindly sent me her version for publication (see previous post).


After last Thursday’s frenetic to-and-fro of the above messages the following ‘God-incidental’ input soon burst upon the scene:

  1. I realised 7 years have elapsed since this Call was made at Release 2010.
  2. That evening’s meeting with our curate of Bramshott & Liphook Church discussed her pre-Alpha spirituality course. She will be teaching on ‘interior castles’ (per Carmelite St Teresa of Avilla)!!
  3. Thus, I told her of my day’s activity and past connection with ‘castles’ and she reminded me of her Bath connections: especially Paul Skelton’s H.O.T.S. and ministry in India. (Soon after launching this blog I helped Paul by publicising the issues HOTS Bath had with Advertising Standards Agency in 2012)
  4. Our vicar Valentine Inglis-Jones was previously curator at Holy Trinity, Coombe Down Bath, and will be with out there with Paul later this month!

So Sunday’s passing remark by pastor John in Daphne, Alabama, makes yet one more confirmatory ‘God-incidence’. On top of all that is what I’d sensed about Windsor Castle in 2011 and shared with Sharon in February 2012.


In that month, at a conference in Torquay, I mentioned to Sharon that Nina and I had visited Windsor the previous year and I’d sensed a spiritual atmosphere there. As we spoke, an image of its Castle’s famous round tower came into mind. This was followed by the idea its crenellated battlements look like the teeth of a giant cogwheel, and this could fit into some sort of invisible socket where earth could get plugged into heaven!

It’s a little hard to explain but then the thought dropped into mind that such engagement would enable the heavenly kingdom to ‘wind up’ our earthly kingdom – or ‘queen-dom’ – for the Lord’s purposes (eg. revival) – rather like putting a key into and winding up a clockwork toy. [Paws 4 Thought – a Special Town in the Thames Valley refers.]

There’s other observations I could make but for now let’s note Liz’s emphasis is reiterated by Suzanne Payne editor of UK Prophetic Words (emphasis added),

“Richard…it is a key time for this word!

Now, it is particularly significant that 8 years have passed since Liz published the full word and call to Christians to defend our Nation and establish God’s rule. In biblical symbolism 8 represents a new beginning, a new order or creation. In the account of creation God created the earth and heavens in 6 days and rested from that labour on the 7th. So the whole creation as a universal, harmonious corporate entity had its first ‘working day’ on the 8th day! (See next post for unexpected confirmation on ‘8’!)

Also, I’d had the distinct impression of 2018 being a year of going up a level, like in spiraling up after having gone around full circle ie as in a 7-year cycle. Personally, I wanted to move into the more restful 7th year of this blog’s cycle (as in my New Year thanks) yet have a strong sense of moving into a new level – and most astonished to get an award!

A most intriguing closing thought: I’d considered re-publishing my first New Year’s blog  Points to Ponder 2011-12 on its 6th anniversary. I didn’t do so yet its subject of Biblical cycles is repeated a couple of paragraphs back – and I sure didn’t plan it that way!

Many thanks to all those who have kindly shared Liz’s call to pray for Britain.

A Prophetic Word and Call to Pray for our Nation

An unusual turn of circumstances that can only be of the Lord have drawn the following document to my attention. I invite readers’ prayerful weighing of and intercession based upon this valuable word of prophetic encouragement and direction from Liz Evans. (An account of those ‘God-incidents’ will follow.)

I’m grateful for her kind permission to publish and, as Liz writes, “The more prayer the better”. I’ve copied/pasted it direct from the email to retain her emphases (hence the Times Roman – depending on your browser! – rather than usual sans-serif typeface and minimal editing).:

Liz Evans’ Word for UK – Call for Christians to pray for the Nation 


Sharon Stone was chatting to Liz in the green-room at a conference and asked her, “I believe God has given you a high-level Word for the UK about castles?” Liz asked her how she knew, and Sharon replied that God had told her about it.


Liz went on to tell Sharon what God had been showing her:

“God is doing a work of restoration in His church at the moment. He is restoring the church to Himself in intimacy and commitment, He is restoring the church to one another in unity, and He is restoring authority to the church. 

What is authority? Authority is the spiritual right and power to enforce His Kingdom rule to the world and in our lives.


God gave me a picture. In this picture I was having balls thrown at my head and I was being knocked over. And then quickly the picture changed. I was learning to duck and dive, and the enemy was throwing balls at me, but none of them were hitting me because I was getting wiser. But then God showed me the 3rd picture. And in the 3rd picture I had the ball. And it was now you run. That’s where the church is in this season. This is key for where we are as a nation. Some of you have been downtrodden and things have come against you in your lives but you’ve got more mature, you’ve learned how to walk in spite of those things and in spite of the things that have been happening in our nation. But you see in this season God is giving us the ball, and He’s expecting us to do something with the authority that He is giving us.


Where are we as a nation, and what does He want us to do with that authority? I want to tell you a story of our nation. In the 11th century, 1066, the Normans came over and they conquered the country and they put the whole of the country under King William – William the conqueror. And in order to establish and perpetuate their rule, they embarked on a series of castle building. Please note that at this point they already had authority in the land. It was theirs. But they built these castles to do certain things. They were a place of presence in the area, they were visible, so they made a statement. And they proclaimed the rule of the King and defended the land that had been given to them.  They were places of watch, seeing what the enemy was doing, seeing what was happening; and they sorted it out, they brought safety and they enforced his rule. They enforced the rule of the kingdom.

 A place of presence. A place to bring rule and order, and enforce the rule of the King, that’s justice in the land. And a place of watch, a place of prayer. What does that sound like to you? That is our remit as the church of Christ. To be the castles in the nation. This is the function of the church. You might say well that’s a nice parallel Liz, it kind of works, but why is that pertinent to the Word for the UK at the moment, at this Kairos time in our nation? Because you know that a Kairos time is ‘now’ [emphasis RB]. It’s a window of time. It’s not a Chronos time, which is on-going.

We’re at a key time. It passes. And I need to tell you that, while I’m being calm and considered because I want to communicate this to you, inside me there is a cry and I want to be on my knees before God saying ‘O God, let us not miss this time as your people because it will not come again’. And the issue of timing is key. You know, there are many prophetic people here. Timing and application are what makes a prophecy, after interpretation, effective. We don’t just want to get the revelation; we want to bring forth the fruit that God intended.


Now the function of a castle took on a particular importance at a certain time in the nation. And this is where we are. When King William was getting older, castle building became a key strategy because when a monarch dies, it’s a key time, it’s ripe, for the rule of the land, of the occupying force, to be challenged. It’s a vulnerable time. It needs covering. So their castle building increased to be a presence and impose rule. You know what’s coming. Since receiving this Word I’ve been hearing from God and then prophetic voices around the kingdom and the world, in totally different streams of the church, talking about the Queen. And I’ve realised that they’re picking up on it too. One of the prophets I was talking to at lunchtime, one of the speakers in the speakers’ lounge said; not knowing what I was going to bring or even that I was going to bring this this afternoon;

Hey Liz I had a vision, I had a vision that the Queen was lying in state, she’d died, and then this man came and stood next to me and he said this: “The mantle of authority and peace that the Queen has carried since the moment she had hands laid on her as Queen, lifted when she stopped breathing.” And things are about to change. This same person had friends who lost a child. And the Queen wrote to them, and she said can I meet you in a hotel? And this isn’t a vision, this is true. And she went to them and she wept with them and she knelt with them and she prayed. And they said the presence of God that came while the Queen was praying with them was immense. You see, she’s carrying something. A mantle of authority, and peace.


Do you remember our 3 balls picture? I have to tell you that the authority ball is about to be passed. And this is a Kairos time in our nation. It’s a time when the rule of the occupying force of the land will be challenged. So our castle building needs to increase, to be a presence, and impose the rule of the Kingdom. And that has great benefits to us. The places of authority were also places of provision. When we bring order and peace to our nation and into our nation from heaven we benefit. Our children and our loved ones prosper. But I have to tell you that we have a window of time, a Kairos, to pray.


And He is restoring the authority to the church. There’s a unity about this prayer movement. As we come together and pray for our nation at this time. You see the time of the intercessors being isolated is being drawn to a close. They’re being drawn into the castle to bring power and to enhance rule. Because He is restoring the church to one another.


And God kept speaking to me about what was happening historically. It’s interesting to me that just after the Normans took over, when the castles were being raised up, the Magna Carta was written. When God was talking to me about this, this fell out of the drawer. And it happens to be a piece of the Magna Carta. And it says this, ‘The English church shall be free, with her rights and liberties unchanged’. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed but recently the freedoms of the church, especially around who they employ, what they believe and what they say, have been in question. Even in minute detail in believers lives. Whether you can wear a cross to work. The rights and liberties of the church were set in place in this nation. But, they need a watch.

And in the Magna Carta I noticed another sentence. ‘No free man shall be imprisoned without a proper trial by jury.’ What’s that? Justice. And that one has very real challenges in a time of terrorism and immigration. And our government needs wisdom. 

What were the castles? A place of watch. And a place of rule, a place where we pray for these things.


And then I had a dream, and it terrified me. It’s a dream which tells of a time yet to come. And in the dream I found myself standing on a pavement and there were people close, and then a black car came by. And there was a coffin in the car, and the car was covered in flowers. And I realised this dream looked forward to a time when the Queen’s rule was passing. In the dream it had happened, and we didn’t pray. I was terrified. I have to tell you that the authority ball will be passed. And God is raising up castles all over the land to defend the country. To establish His presence, His rule, and bring order in His Kingdom, to earth.


And there will be princes in this nation, men and women that God is raising up into a place of authority in government, in industry, government, education and in the church to take a place with God, Israel. He’s putting a name upon you of rule for this nation. Mordecai said to Esther ‘for such a time as this’. And there’s also a company of believers who are going to take their places on the walls behind those men, and pick up the watch for our nation. Esther prayed and fasted when she was in trouble. The Jews prayed and fasted. And this is what it says in Esther 8 v 11. The Kings granted to the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves. Of course I’m not talking about people. We battle not against people. We battle against principalities and powers of this dark age. 


The castles are a place of presence. What does it say in the Psalms? ‘God is present in the company of the righteous’. And you’ve been raised for such a time as this my friends. The ball will be passed. But we have a window.


And I have to tell you that application of Words is vital and if the soil doesn’t receive and respond to this Word there will be no fruit. And I’m not going to tell you who they are but the prophet at lunchtime told me what the fruit would be if we don’t pick up this Word and fight with it. But I’m looking here for good soil. Soil that produces a crop. 30% 60% or even 100%. Because our nation depends on it. Let me tell you, are we going to have 30% of our nation left to us, 60% of our nation left to us, or 100%? 

And this is a ‘masa’ Word; it’s an intercession Word. The Bible talks about the watchman of Israel as dogs that didn’t bark, well the watchman of the church are barking. All over this nation. And we’re beginning to hear it. And we need the watch and the prayer to come forth in response to that. Because we will never have such a strong position in this nation again if we don’t. This is vital. We’ve got to hold the land that we’ve been given. Because it’s our watch. So who’s going to carry that ball in prayer? So that the authority ball is passed well and it’s not dropped? If you’re a leader, we’re going to commission you that you go and call people together for prayer.


And He also told me that we were to prayer-walk and proclaim and that the authority of God comes where our feet tread. And I want you to understand your authority because He is the King and we are bringing the declaration that He is the King of all the earth. And  that He is the King of the nation for evermore. There will be no break in His Kingship. He has given it to us and we will hold it. The time of the priests of God to rule is arising because His Kingdom is coming. It’s time for the sons. And it’s time to anoint the priests. Leaders who will take up the watch of God. The Bible says that creation is longing for the sons of God to be revealed.”

Prince Charles warns UK Christians not to take freedom to worship for granted!

Politico-religious author ‘Cranmer’ has blogged today about the Prince of Wales’ visit  to London’s Melkite Greek Catholic parish, based at St Barnabas Church in Pimlico, where a Coptic Orthodox Bishop and Syriac Archbishop were in attendance. The Prince spoke of his own faith, his despair at the appalling plight of Christians in the Middle-East and his hope during this season of Advent. 

In Prince of Wales to UK Christians: “Do not take your freedom of worship and freedom of expression for granted”, Cranmer blogs

And then came this nugget of theo-political awareness:

“It is so vitally important, in this season of Advent and throughout the year, that Christians in this country and elsewhere, who enjoy the rights of freedom of worship and freedom of expression, do not take those rights for granted; and that we remember, and do what we can to support, our fellow Christians for whom the denial of such rights has had such profound and painful consequences.”

Nuggety, because the Prince of Wales has gone further in this speech than many politicians and church leaders currently dare. Most will talk effusively of inter-religious tolerance and the imperative of freedom of worship, but very few these days will defend Christians’ freedom of expression, i.e., freedom of religion; the freedom to manifest their faith in the public space; to walk in spirit and in truth; to propagate the Christian faith and witness to Christ in the world.

Cranmer refers to the outstanding work of Christian Concern supporting/fighting in the courts on behalf of many individuals persecuted in Britain because of their faith at work or in public:

Freedom of worship and freedom of expression are foundational British liberties, currently besieged (if not nullified and negated) by ascendant and increasingly frequent appeals to ‘religious hatred’. By exhorting British Christians to guard these hard-won liberties, the Prince of Wales shows that he is patently aware of their incremental erosion – not least because they aren’t included among the Government’s rather fuzzy  notion of ‘British values‘. We supplant religious freedom with statist tolerance, and exchange public theology for mandatory respect, at our peril.

Charles Shamp #2 of 3: Theresa May will shine like a star

NOTE – This is the second part of a longer post published on 6th June by UK Prophetic Words and which may be read in its entirety at Urgent Word about England, Terrorism, Brexit, Theresa May, The Lion of Judah is Calling You To ROAR. (The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link).

Continuing from #1, Charlie expands upon the serious spiritual contention and warfare over the Lord’s will for Britain, expanding upon Theresa May’s role therein (see also post-election comment below and subsequent posts):

A Prophetic Word for the UK: MAY WILL SHINE LIKE A STAR – 10th May 2017

“May will bloom in the month of May. I have given her grace to run her race. She is a diamond in the royal crown. She has been sent and set in her place by me to help the Queen and the United Kingdom. Her legacy has been set in stone, she will not be moved or removed. In June she will shine bright for the world to see!”

The Lord gave me a verse out of Isaiah for Theresa May, the Queen, and the United Kingdom:

“Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.”

Charlie then says I want you to get this because I feel it so strong in my spirit. God is doing something and he’s going to sever the tide, this root of religion that is of Islam that is coming out of the UK right now. And God is going to marry you again. AS the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall God rejoice over thee.

I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Isaiah 62:3-7

Charlie continues: The Lord told me that Theresa May has been sent and set by the Lord as a watcher over the crown and the United Kingdom for the Queen. She will not fail, but will be faithful and finish the course. She is a diamond and a bright star that will shine for the world to see. The United Kingdom has been sealed for the BREXIT, it will come to pass.

I don’t care what the enemy tries to do, even over the next several weeks. There is a turning of the tide, there is a blessing that’s coming, and when the enemy comes in like a flood, God is going to raise up a standard. And I want to tell all my friends, those that I love in England,  that God has sealed the UK for the BREXIT, and the enemy is trying to put fear on the people, in order to try to draw them back in, to that beast, that beast out of Brussels. But the Lord says you have to cut and sever the root of religion.

And I’m telling you right now, I’m praying for you England, I’m staying in constant communication with some of those I’m close with over there, but this is a time that the UK is going to shine. This is a time that Theresa May is going to shine in June, and it’s going to be overwhelming after this election, and there’s going to be a wave of favour that’s going to come.

The BREXIT is going to happen, the enemy cannot stop it, England/the UK is coming out of the EU, God has already said it, the scroll has already been released … I said it in 2015 in England when I was ministering in Norwich … I saw in the spirit that God was going to link the US and the UK together, and that as the Lion roars the Eagle was going to fly. We said that as the lion roars in freedom in the UK and there’s a changing of the government, there’s a shifting of the freedom of the lion roaring, that at the same time there was going to be something that was going to happen in America where the Eagle was going to come back and it was going to begin to soar and fly and we said that in 2015.

… And then in December we released the Word (see #3). I’m telling you what’s happening right now in England is the root of religion, of Islam is being pulled out of the country, and BREXIT is happening, and the enemy is trying to fight right now, with his last breath. And we saw this in December … while I was staying on the Island of Mull, I had a night vision, the day before the US election, I had an encounter where I saw a man walking through the land, and I said Lord who is that man? and He said that’s My church in England, that’s My people in England, that’s My church in the UK; those are My people. And suddenly there was a root, a root of religion, a root that came out of the ground, and it wrapped around the man, and it was like a snake, it came and wrapped around the body of the man, and I said Lord what is that? He said that’s the root of religion, He said it’s two fold, a two fold religious root. And this root had tentacles on it. I said Lord what is this two fold root of religion and tradition? He said it’s the root of religion and tradition that makes My people be quiet and silent when the enemy is destroying them. And He said it’s a root of religion that is trying to suffocate them.

And as I saw this, the root went and wrapped around the mouth of the man, and began to suffocate Him. And I said Lord, how can we stop this? And the Lord said to me, He said that it’s Matthew chapter 3 … And I’m telling you England it is not a time to be silent, it is a time to STAND UP and ROAR. The people of England, the people of the UK, it’s time to STAND UP and begin to DECREE and DECLARE, and begin to ROAR. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is calling you to ROAR right now.

The enemy is trying to come in and to take the heart of the country, and unless you ROAR, unless you ROAR, that enemy’s trying to come and he’s going to take your heart. And I’m telling you the Lord wants to release the Lion Heart of God, the Lion Heart of the Lord. And the Lord told me that it was Matthew chapter 3, and He said it’s verse 10 and 11: And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the tree therefore every tree therefore that beareth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Ghost and in fire.

And the Lord spoke to me and said that the people of England are going to be baptized in the fire of the Holy Spirit; there’s a fresh baptism for the church in the UK OF THE FIRE OF God, that as they GO and PRAY, and they begin to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, that the AXE is going to be LAID at the ROOT of the tree of RELIGION and TRADITION, it’s going to be laid at the ROOT of ISLAMIC TERRORISM, and that root is going to be PULLED OUT of the country.

And the Lord said to me to pray for you tonight, all my friends in the UK …the SPIRIT of FEAR is trying to come in to PULL you BACK from the BREXIT. And the tentacles, and that beast that’s in BRUSSELS is trying to PULL you back in, to NOT BREAK AWAY. But I want to release strength, I want to release courage, and I want to release this fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire to you tonight, and as you go to pray, that boldness like a LION is going to come upon you, and you’re going to begin to prophesy, you’re going to begin to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and God is going to cause the UK to to shine like a bright star… God is going to cause England to be broken away from the root of religion. As the church rises up and begins to roar, the Lion of God is going to come out of your mouth, and its going to destroy this root of religion, and this root of Islamic terrorism that’s trying to come into the country, and the Lord’s speaking to you even right now as you’re watching, that the fire and the power of God is going to come out of you. And the Lord told me, He said to me, ‘Son, it has to be a people that are from the land that are going to begin to speak to the root of religion’ …

Charlie then shares about having had his DNA tested and being 67% from England the Lord told him that’s why he as so much passion for England, and that he needs to stand up and mobilise the people and tell them that that this is a season to not be silent, that it was already foretold that this was a time of contention in the realm of the spirit but the Lord says this too shall pass, and that as we link together in the spirit of unity, God is going to command the blessing upon the UK, He’s commanded a blessing upon the BREXIT, He’s commanded a blessing upon the people of God, and this is going to be a time of rejoicing, a time of the presence of God, it’s going to be a time, where the enemy has come in like a flood, God is going to raise up the standard in the Body of Christ, He’s going to raise up the standard in the UK, and we’re charging forward. I’m telling you, the Lion of the tribe of Judah is going to roar. And the Lion is roaring, and we’re not backing down, we’re not stepping back. We’re not going to faint or run in fear. No we’re going to stand up and decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and the root of religion is going to be severed by the axe of God…And the signs and the wonders are going to begin to be manifested in the nation.

Charlie then goes on to speak more (around 23 minutes) about what we’re going to see in this move of God in the UK. But it all starts with this Matthew chapter 3, verse 10 and 11, that there is a baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire … I’m telling you there is a shifting that’s happening right now, and we’re not drawing back into fear. We’re moving forward in faith and victory and power, and the enemy has no place, he can’t stop what’s coming, there’s a revival, there’s a move of God, there’s an outpouring, there’s the glory that’s coming on the UK, the presence of God is going to move like we’ve never seen before across those Islands, the fire is going to burn, God is going to change the government, God is moving back into the country, the Lord has even saved the Queen, and put the Queen in a place where she is not going to leave this earth until the fullness of this BREXIT thing happens. I’m telling you right now, God has set and sealed her as well. She’s a praying one, she loves Jesus, she loves the Lord, and she’s praying for the country. And we’re standing in unity, and the power of the Holy Spirit is going to cause us to break away from this BEAST that’s out of Brussels, and we’re going to march forward into the things of God, and that root of religion that I saw on the man is going to be broken and severed, and we’re going to run into the freedom and we’re going to run across the land with the fire of God, so Father in the Name of Jesus I pray for my friends in the UK, across England right now, and the enemy is trying to bring discouragement, trying to break their faith and break their persistence and break their prophetic edge. Charlie then comes against that in prayer and releases the fire of the Holy Ghost upon everyone watching the broadcast, and in England for intercession, for the prophetic courts of God, for moving into the council rooms of God and decreeing and declaring the Word of the Lord over the nation …

President Donald Trump and the “42” (part 2)

This valuable insight offered by Mark Davidson is highly significant in my humble opinion – and could support not only the idea of Britain and America as the prophesied ‘Tarshish’ (and he reinforces my remarks on Obama in another recent post), but also my blogging on the revival of our spiritual and political/commercial bond (here and here).


So Barack Obama, supposedly the forty-second person to be constitutionally elected president of the United States, is now a former president. He has been replaced by the next person to be president, Donald Trump.

In this earlier post I suggested a theory I heard years ago about the Bible’s use of the number forty-two and its seeming application to the leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States. Ancient Israel and Judah had a total of forty-two kings before changing form and losing their independence.

In the case of the United Kingdom, William the Conqueror was the first monarch of Britain in its current form and the current reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is the forty-second monarch.

And in the case of the United States, President Obama was supposedly the forty-second constitutionally elected person and that was going to be it for the United States in its current form…

Prophetic Scripture Update #1: Ezekiel – the UK AND USA as western Tarshish

Nero_6Morning coffee revelation again! It was Friday 24th February when I spotted this inside-page headline in my paper’s world news section: ‘Commonwealth Invites US to Join the Club’.  I grasped the unusual significance of this news immediately because it relates to a questionable claim I’d read 30 years ago as a non-Christian and popped into the ‘pending tray’. It’s the notion of ancient Britain possibly being biblical Tarshish.

Invisible HandThe Invisible Hand, written from a secular standpoint by Victor Dunstan, gave me an intriguing introduction to Bible prophecy. What actually happened simultaneously with my fanning through its pages after receiving it as a gift was jaw-dropping. As a consequence, 15 years later I began following world events to watch whether or not they tallied with biblical prophecy – AND echoes of that mid-1980’s news re-appeared decades later on a couple of anniversaries of this blog – see The ‘Invisible Hand’ Reappears at Another Anniversary: Spooky! for the full story.

So this recent news I read a fortnight ago reminded me of one of the author’s claims and, although revisited during the EU Referendum, I’d certainly give it some credibility now.

MOREOVER, it cleanly clouts Obama’s threat to put “Britain at the back of the queue” in US trade negotiations into oblivion!!

That news in the Telegraph’s broadsheet is textual only, but Google gives a well-illustrated version of the print-copy in the (Canadian) National Post’s In a Project Backed by The Queen, Commonwealth Invites the U.S. to Become ‘Associate Member’. (A report for non-subscribers is now available online asExclusive: United States could become an ‘Associate Member’ of the Commonwealth’, the url for which uses an insightful earlier headline > – note: does not open in new window)

And surprise surprise! The Canadian version leads with a photo of Donald Trump and Theresa May – in her “Redcoats are coming” outfit – walking together along the White House’s colonnades. (Puzzled by my reference, then see Fulfilled Prophecies #16.)

How exceptionally appropriate is this news relating to the improved – and revolutionary! – relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States, especially when taking a possible Biblical aspect into the equation!

[Also very timely was Dr Sharon Stone’s subsequent mentoring day in Windsor on Jesus making Himself known as King in this season and that we’re coming into areas of His rule and our own role in dominion and authority. She defines ‘king’ as “The king whose word is law and obeyed is one who rules”, and in referring to George III and to Bonaparte, said “Revolutions come when people don’t listen to law eg. 2016’s insurrection in the USA and what happened here and in us, turning us toward heaven’s rule”.  I’d already drafted the previous paragraph’s wording – so maybe her points act as confirmation?]

How can this news relate to the Bible, you may ask?

emmaus-group-tarshishDo you recall reading on this blog about a possible connection between ancient Tarshish and Britain, especially with our global community of nations, or ‘common-wealth’?  Of these our previous colonies in North America are some of the oldest.

Check A Biblical Basis for Brexit, courtesy of The Emmaus Group, for a lucid case for the British Isles as the western descendants, if not original location, of ancient Tarshish.

Their case is based upon these texts: Ezekiel 19:2-3, 38:13, Isaiah 2:16, 66:19, Psalm 72:10. The Invisible Hand also has Jonah 1:3 but adds Ezekiel 27:12-26, Isaiah 60:9, 1 Chron 9:21 (with 1 Kings 9:26-27) and Psalm 48:7.  (Verses shown bold are usually regarded as prophetic, especially pertaining to the ‘Gog-Magog’ war.)

Note that the period in question is about 3,000 years ago, centuries before Classical Greece and Rome became established and later became imperial superpowers across the Near East. At this time of the ‘Greek Dark Ages’, the enterprising, sea-faring port of Tyre and its Phoenician civilisation had spread across the Mediterranean.

My study bible offers a noteworthy point on the geographical location of Tarsish under prophetic Ezekiel’s ‘Lament for Tyre’ (chapter 27) which states, (v12) “Tarshish was your merchant…(13) Jaban, Tubal and Meshech were your traders…” So too were Togarmah, Dedan, Syria, Judah and theland of Israel, Damascus, Dan and Javan, Arabia and Kedar, Sheba and Raamah, Haran, Canneh, Eden…Assyria and Chilmad. The footnote reads:

27:12-24 The most complete and extensive list of trading communities found anywhere in scripture. The list moves geographically from the west to east and shows an accurate knowledge of the commercial activity of that day.

27:12 Tarshish is generally identified as a city or territory in the Western Mediterranean, perhaps Tartessus in Spain.

In the Royal Commonwealth Society’s plan to open a branch in New York, its director Michael Lake would welcome bringing the United States into the fold as an “associate member”. To quote the report:

‘The advantage of the Commonwealth, Mr Lake said, is that it operates less formally than governments, as a loose arrangement that is furthered by common values and culture.

“It works because companies find it easier and more congenial to work in Commonwealth countries,” he said…”The Queen is our patron and I see her from time to time, and she makes it clear to me that the Commonwealth is a priority to her…”.’

It would, he says, further Britain’s ties with America with whom we have a common lingual bond and develop new connections between us – AND, in my humble opinion, may bring about a fulfillment of Old Testament scripture!

In fact, it would enable the ‘Bridge over the Pond’ already carrying Godly spiritual ‘traffic’ to bear business and political ‘traffic lanes’ as well.

Soon, the ‘lioness’ may have her ‘young lions’ all ‘present and correct’ in preparation for the prophesied End-times.

Jesus Christ declares, “I am the Light of the World”

I’m grateful to Dave Chapman for sending this personal encouragement which I’m sharing with my readers upon return to blogging. Having been offline for all but an hour over the holiday I hadn’t read this until today and happily surprised (maybe I shouldn’t be!) at this year starting with a ‘coincidental’ hint from the Lord!

In our daily ‘Keep Praying and Bless’, as blogged in the Summer, we’re now back at its opening day’s decree and blessing for Land’s End, from where the Praise Bus started its nationwide journey accompanying the Olympic Torch in 2012 (see introductory post). The first decree in this prayer cycle is “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD”, from John 8:12 – “I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

Hence my immense delight upon discovering the title of Dave’s paper (links and video are mine). Be mightily encouraged and blessed as you read:


As I start to write it is very early morning on Christmas Eve.  I had been inspired by an account I just read of the Jewish soldier in George Washington’s army (JNN News), who had apparently inspired him to hope, even believe, he would win the war he was in – yes, the one against us British who were seeking to bring them under our control!

A Message to the Citizens of the United States of America

Further to references in the USA to a possible constitutional crisis, and in view of Great Britain’s forthcoming independence from the European Union, a sensible solution has been found for avoiding a breakdown of US government business, as happened during investigations into the Watergate scandal. Now hear this 😉 



To the Citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In light of your failure to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

1. The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘colour,’ ‘favour,’ ‘labour’, ‘neighbour, etc, etc.’ Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ without skipping half the letters, and the suffix ‘-ize’ will be replaced by the suffix ‘-ise.’ Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels.

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ”like” and “you know” is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter ‘u” and the elimination of ‘-ize.’

3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can’t sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you’re not ready to shoot grouse.

5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect.

At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and use imperial measure. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.

8. You will learn to make real chips. French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as ‘beer’, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as ‘lager’. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound-for-pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth – see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat’s Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

10. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters and will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys.

Watching Andie Macdowell attempt an English dialect in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one’s ears removed with a cheese grater.

11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer.

Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable.

You will learn cricket and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

13. You must tell us who killed JFK. It’s been driving us mad.

14. An internal revenue agent (ie. tax collector) from Her Majesty’s Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 pm. with proper cups and their matching saucers, never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies, as you may continue naming them) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God Save The Queen!!!!

PS. this repeats a Facebook joke posted in 2011 and currently circulating on email.

Brexit Briefing 1 – A Word for the Queen & on praying for PM May and Britain

The following by courtesy of UK Prophetic Words serves to start a short series of posts on some developments subsequent to the successful referendum to leave the European Union (which isn’t the same as Europe):

Cindy Jacobs - FB pageCindy Jacobs [of Generals International] was interviewed on TBN recently, this is my transcript of what she said at 26 mins 50. [Free-login necessary for video.]

“As I was praying for the Queen, the Lord gave me a very sweet Word, and you know I’m an American, so we’re a little more neutral in some of these areas, but this is what the Lord says:

“The Monarchy will continue, and because of your prayers, I’m going to release a legacy and a blessing for you, down through the generations. And I will see that the United Kingdom moves in a path that will be a righteous path.”

“And God is going to give you extraordinary wisdom. England is coming into a course, and the UK is coming into a course correction; God is making a course correction, but this is the good news, God knows the course, and God knows the path, and He’s going to see, because of your prayers, and many others that love God in this beautiful country, this United Kingdom; God is going to see a great move of God across this land, and God is going to give you a wonderful time for your 90th birthday, happy birthday. And your prayers will be answered.”

BREXIT – What we need to Pray

During the run up to the European Referendum I asked the LORD His view and how to pray. He gave me three things in reply:
Firstly He repeatedly pressed upon me the word AUTONOMY, which referred to the need to vote to leave the EU.
He then said, “It’s time to cut the apron strings”. I believe this is about a clean cut to separate us from the EU, and that is what we need to pray for earnestly now.
Today please pray for Theresa May and the Cabinet, for progress in activating Article 50 and an uncompromised move to exit the EU.
He then showed me the prow of a grey ship, just the very front, turning and then moving forward to penetrate the mainland.
This shows our need as a nation to repent and allow the LORD to turn and steer us so He can use Britain for His good purposes, bringing what He has given us to carry to Europe and beyond.
To be able to turn, Britain must first cut the strings and dependency so we can come under God’s Lordship, fully dependent on Him.

To God be the glory!

UK/EU in/out #3: In the Face of God

I’m grateful to Dave Chapman for this paper of 7th April and especially for emphasing the importance of Christians taking a stand (hence my under-linings) and for including some prophetical visions. The Footnote updates the first section and considers the Lord’s hand behind the exposures of anti-Semitism in UK politics.:


We have reached a time in our nation where we need to stand up and be counted. Here is an example why :-

In recognition of Baal worship

“On April 19, 2016, in cooperation with national and international cultural heritage preservation organizations, and in conjunction with World Heritage Week 2016, the Institute for Digital Archaeology will install a monumental scale reconstruction of Palmyra’s Triumphal Arch on Trafalgar Square. Through this project — and others like it scheduled throughout 2016 in cities both inside and outside the Middle East — the IDA seeks to provide an optimistic and constructive response to the ongoing threats to history and heritage that have captured headlines over the past year. Our aim is to highlight the potential for the triumph of human ingenuity over violence by offering innovative, technology-driven options for the stewardship of objects and architecture from our shared past”. (Source: IDA website original).

A considered response

‘Voice for Justice’ make a response this way (most of original on Voice for Justice UK – News) :-

‘We call on the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, and Roger Michel, executive director of the Institute for Digital Archaeology, to abandon immediately the scheme to reconstruct the Arch of Palmyra in Trafalgar Square on April 19.  In 2015 the pictures of destruction by ISIS/Daesh of the Temple of Bel (also known as Baal Shamin) in Palmyra rightly shocked the world, and attempts to safeguard the world’s historical heritage from future acts of senseless aggression are to be applauded.

‘However, the reconstruction of the temple arch in Trafalgar Square on April 19 by the Oxford based Institute of Digital Archaeology (IDS) will serve a much darker purpose….. From earliest times Baal was a powerful symbol for evil and the occult: a pagan Canaanite god who demanded regular and bloody appeasement by child sacrifice.  Baal worship, representing all that was evil, was particularly condemned in the Bible (e.g. Leviticus 18:21).

‘In terms of symbolic value, however, even more disturbing is the date chosen for the reconstruction of the monument, because in occult belief, April 19 marks the Feast of Moloch, another ancient Canaanite god, specifically associated with Baal (e.g. Jeremiah 32:35), who also demanded child sacrifice.  April 19 marks the first day of a thirteen day period known as the “blood sacrifice to the beast,” and culminates in the high occult holy day of Beltane on 1st May……[NB. date for Footnote]

‘….Without question, April 19…is one of the most significant dates in the occult calendar. Was the selection of this particular date to reconstruct an ancient monument to the god Baal random or deliberate?  Either way, it is extremely unfortunate, to say the least.

‘If we allow the erection of this Arch we will be placing a symbol of death, murder, child sacrifice and sexual immorality in the heart of London…….. And we call on the Mayor of London to uphold the UK’s Christian heritage and ban the erection of a monument that is clearly hostile to Christian belief.”

Flying in the Face of God

Surely such a thing flies in the face of God.  Our battle though is not a physical one, even though we cannot stay silent by failing to protest its erection in our Capital City, despite their claim that it is apparently intended only for World Heritage purposes. Why should we celebrate what we know is specifically identified in Scripture as a forbidden ‘god’ by the Lord Himself!?  Of course, as Christians we do not, but why should we not speak up, as those aware of evil things, since we desire blessing upon our Nation, not cursing.

Another edifice to ‘another god’ 

There again, there is our Union with Europe, which as we pray for our Nation to return to God, includes praying concerning this upcoming Referendum Vote on the 23rd June, and, as we do, we find clarity that the prime issue is a spiritual one.  It is clear that the whole of this Union is constructed not only on a Godless basis – in fact God is not mentioned in any of the founding or official documents of this Union – which therefore stands in direct competition to God, in setting itself up as an alternative power to rule – therefore as an alternative Kingdom.  That, in itself is an alignment with the spirit of anti-Christ.  We shall return to this aspect.

A grand example to us all 

Not only this, but as a Nation – I mean the current British Isles – we have a Monarch, who achieves her 90th birthday on the 21st of this month, who recognises, and serves, our God as her King, and recommends  the Christian Gospel.  For instance, in her Coronation vows, the Queen requested Gods help to make good her vow to the Nation – which is ‘to be devoted to our service’ – and requested Him’ to bless us all’.  At this same Coronation she received the Bible, given to her at that time as  “The most valuable thing that this world affords”.  Later, the Queen in her message to the Nation in 2008 expressed, in speaking of Jesus of Nazareth (there is no disputing who she speaks of), that “so many of us are able to draw inspiration from His message, and to find in Him a source of strength and courage”.

Then in her message of 2012, when speaking to us, the Queen quoted from the carol  “In the bleak mid winter” these words  “What can I give him, poor as I am?  If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; if I were a wise man I would do my part. Yet, what I can I give him? – give my heart”.  It is clear the Queen understands to love and follow Christ is a matter of the heart and not of words only.

All these things are imbedded in our Constitutional Monarchy, and have been for centuries the basis of our Governmental authority. Yet we find no such thing in the EU Constitution.  Are we really wanting to give up such a Godly heritage?  If so we will find a quickening decline into open rebellion against God, with pretty dire spiritual, and natural consequences.  As if we are not in considerable trouble with our present spiritual state already!

Choose the better path

No, it is time to stand up and be counted – and be clear about it.  We need to leave the EU. It may be the only opportunity we get before the whole thing descends into more and more chaos.  It’s central Parliament is as we know held in Brussels, the Capital of Belgium, which itself became locked in confusion for over one year and seven months as it tried to put together a Coalition after their last Election.  What an example from the EU’s present Capital City!  We can see what happened here:-

‘Following the Belgian general election held on 13 June 2010, a process of cabinet formation started in Belgium. The election produced a very fragmented political landscape, with 11 parties elected to the Chamber of Representatives, none of which won more than 20% of the seats. The separatist New Flemish Alliance (N-VA), the largest party in Flanders and the country as a whole, controls 27 of 150 seats in the lower chamber. The Francophone Socialist Party (PS), the largest in Wallonia, controls 26 seats. Cabinet negotiations continued for a long time. On 1 June 2011, Belgium matched the record for time taken to form a new democratic government after an election, at 353 days, held until then by Cambodia in 2003–2004.[1] On 11 October 2011, the final agreement for institutional reform was presented to the media. A government coalition was named on 5 December 2011 and sworn in after a total of 541 days of negotiations and formation on 6 December 2011,[2] and 589 days without an elected government [3] with Elio Di Rupo named Prime Minister of the Di Rupo I Government.’  (The bold letters are mine – DC – for emphasis. Otherwise all above as quote from Wikipedia here) :-

Can we really ignore what confusion and ineptness, as a Governmental example, we have from the very seat of this unwieldy Organisation?  We may do so at our peril.  Could their malaise over the Jihadists living in areas of Brussels be connected to this lack of Government?  At least they do not have to vote again till 2019 though!

However, in finding out how Belgium got its name, we discover its ancient roots are linked with the worship of Bel, and Belenus, the Babylonian and Celtic sun gods, indicating  ‘lord and master’, known otherwise as Baal also! Conspiracy of links?   No, clear demonic overlay.  We have pointed out before also the Statue of the Woman riding on the Bull shown outside the European Buildings there.  Apocalyptic imagery indeed.

Another EU Parliament?

Of course, the other Parliament in the EU is in Strasbourg.  Built there at a cost to Member Countries of the EU of some 500 million Euros – let alone the secondary buildings! – and designed to represent the unfinished Tower of Babel – which itself means “confusion”  – (The people who built this original Tower attempted to enter spiritual realms beyond this earth to gain power to operate totally independently of God, so were scattered by the Lord through confusion their languages) – It is active for just 4 days a month, when papers, personnel, security, MEP’s, the whole shebang – decamps from Brussels to hold Parliament there, and then back! 

The strap-line to Sunday Telegraph’s Chief Reporter Robert Mendick’s report The Farce of the EU Travelling Circus published on 11 January 2014 reads.:

‘The full cost of the travelling circus that sees MEPs decamp once a month from Brussels to Strasbourg can be disclosed. And even though MEPs have voted to scrap a second parliament, the French government has the power to block any such move.’

What of us?

Are we any better though?  It’s not really a point of ‘being better’, is it?  Surely, in the face of such control – and increasingly so with regard to our Laws, our Finances, our Business relationships, as well as our spiritual alignments – we need the ability to make our own decisions, choose our own path, to walk as much as is possible with as many Countries as possible, but not to be controlled, manipulated or intimidated by them.  We have ‘sleep walked’ into this mess.  We have been  passive for too long.  Are we brave enough to start to step out of it?

Are we, as Christians, at last going to express what we really feel and know in our inner beings about this matter? We have a choice.  In this life choice is one of the most valuable things we have.  It is directly linked to freedom. We can take a lead.  Too many live under despotic regimes where they have none.  Let’s own some backbone.  I wanted to say have some ‘steel’ in us, but that’s another problem at the moment too! – and not unconnected either!  As has been said “it only takes good men (and women) to do nothing for evil to triumph”.

Voice of believers

But, here are also some things from believers, the one who we know well, and trust her spiritual insights; the other, though a total stranger, sounds like she has bothered to pray about these matters for nigh on 30 years.  That’s good enough for me.  Firstly, from her :-

“In my quiet time I was led to Matthew 16:19 where it talks about binding and loosing. I confess I didn’t fully understand the principle and asked the Lord for clarification. I began to think of a vision I had way back in ’87 of scissors cutting through the English Channel. The Lord told me I was to pray that we are to cut off from Europe.  I asked why not a sword? “You got yourselves into this mess, you are going to have to pray yourselves out. Every time you pray according to my will I will cut…cut.” The vision then changed to a Britain as a battleship tied by her stern to Europe with an enormous rope; I then saw little fiery darts hitting and cutting into the rope, these I understood to be the prayers of the saints. As I watched the rope broke and the battleship slowly turned to face Europe, and the covers came off her guns; signifying this was a spiritual as well as a physical battle.”

Some weeks later a Pastor’s wife rang to say she had the same vision and what did it mean? I explained, and then we discovered that women all over the country were having the same vision.

“29 years later we are on the threshold of the rope breaking in the coming Referendum as we seek to leave the EU. So what has this to do with binding and loosing in Matt 16:19?  I wrote down the word ‘Europe’ and immediately saw the word EuROPE, the rope that binds us to the EU…..”

Then again, earlier this year, in response to my item called  ‘Britain and the EU’, Sue commented :-

“Some years back when I was praying  for Europe one Tuesday afternoon, the Lord gave me an action picture of the map of Europe.  I saw the UK right at the heart of Europe, then a big hand came and grabbed the whole nation, wrenched it out of Europe and put it back in its place, which is geographically where it is on maps.  Then Europe imploded on itself, as if it was in tatters.”

A Second Chance

So, some 41 years on from our last opportunity to express our personal conviction on this matter, we have this chance to change our course.  Mind you, it was not the same question then we answered.  At that stage it was whether we wanted to be a part of a free trading Europe, or not.  But, we were not told the truth, which Mr Heath admitted to.  Now that it is clear what it is all about, and with increasing loss of National Sovereignty, we can make a wiser decision. As one happy campaigner said today, after Holland said “No” to greater trading ties with Ukraine, “what we want is cooperation between European nation States, without all the superstructure we have at present”.

Neither did our current Government expect to have to grant a Referendum, since although it was a main promise if they won the Election, no one, the Conservatives included, other politicians or forecasters, expected an outright majority for them!  They certainly didn’t!   But now they had to keep their promise, otherwise there would have been uproar in the Conservative Party.  The Referendum Act in Parliament, some 7 months later, was passed into Law.  So, it was a ‘set up’!  And who did that?   I suspect our ALL KNOWING GOD did!

A Higher Purpose

But, let’s not waste this opportunity, and so gather to pray, in two’s and few’s, and many too, not only about this, but for the real purpose of separating  from the EU – which is to head these Nations back to God.  (Many will be doing so on St George’s Day 23rd April, also Passover.  George, a Christian in Diocletian’s Roman army in 303 AD, who refused to deny his faith, became a martyr).  Leaving the EU is just a big step to choosing a better path for that.  We are not above any other peoples, but we can choose to be blessed, and be a blessing to others, to fulfil the long-established, un-rescinded call of God to spread His name around the world, by being an example among the Nations to His faithfulness, His Gospel, and His Kingdom, through, and from these Nations.  “The gifts and callings of God are without repentance”.  They are there for picking up again – and He wants us to.

That has to be our goal, otherwise we become lost in the political and economic tangles of one issue alone, then, only to find his purposes still exist for us, whatever the result on the day – it’s just that one pathway will be less severe as a journey to that end, than the other.

After much public protestation – by believers and the public in UK and USA, over the raising of a Baal Arch in London and New York, we understand New York cancelled theirs, and the one raised in London was only the Roman Arch at the front of their Colonnade and Market.  Voice for Justice says, “We are being contacted by people saying they have heard interviews on LBC radio reporting that the Triumphal Arch today being erected in Trafalgar Square is part of the Temple of Bel/Baal, and asking what is going on.  In particular, they are asking if we have been misled. The answer to this, we believe, is no.   It is our understanding that the Roman Triumphal Arch was not part of the Temple of Bel/Baal but was an entirely separate structure standing at the end of a colonnade that began in the market place and led up to the Temple. Current misreporting appears to reflect the general confusion surrounding reconstruction of the arch, but may also mirror continued attempts to claw back victory.   Either reason serves to demonstrate the continued need for vigilance and prayer.”  [Thanks for this Dave; latest from VFJuk may be read in ‘Victory’.]
  2. Interesting to note above reference to pagan significance of 1st May, which is also celebrated by Communism and Socialism as the workers’ public holiday. This year however, we can see the hand of the Lord in exposing the outrageous anti-Semitism buried deeply within the Labour Party. This necessitated its leader Jeremy Corbyn’s eventual denunciation of all racialism in his public Mayday speech (report here) .
  3. Dave’s calls for us to “Stand!” speaks to me about the meaning of an open vision I had in 2004 of a map of Britain. As the fabric of society is rotten I saw a great tear appear from which emerged a huge long rock, in the same location as the Pennines – I understood this means the Lord will restore our strong, spiritual backbone when we stand upon Him, The Rock –  see Comments upon the collapse of Society.

Happy 90th Birthday Your Majesty, Servant of The King


A very happy, most enjoyable birthday Ma’am.

I recall not only mother’s parents and her brother, who lived close by, but neighbours too had called at our house when I was five years old. And they were all crammed into our lounge!! Dad had recently been up at the roof to nail a weird metal frame by the gutter and point it to the sky, then trail and fix a wire down to small boxes on the skirting boards in the front and rear sitting rooms. Next he went to his workbench in the cellar and fixed another wire onto a water piper! This puzzled me and dad said it’s necessary to ‘earth’ the whole lot if any lightning hits the aerial : the electricity would go into the ground and not damage the house and the big, new, wooden-varnished box with knobs on.

With everyone seated in our larger lounge on 2nd June 1953, he drew the curtains to shut out daylight and turned a knob on that box in the far corner. Its shiny light-grey mirror then turned into a black-and-white picture of crowds in a street somewhere in far-away London.

We were about to watch the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, a princess 20 years older than this little chap in his first year at primary school. Little did I know it was the first such occasion to be televised live and watched by 27 million, over half the population. Good job they wouldn’t fit into our house!

It was an amazing and enjoyable occasion to which was added a neighbourhood party. Nationally, it marked a welcome turning point after over a decade of death, destruction, privation and real economic austerity. I didn’t succumb to becoming a monarchist but I’ve come to admire her majesty as a stalwart Christian whose faith makes a special mark as an evangelist.

Believers and non-believers alike, have much to learn from the Queen’s example of duty to God and nation. This low-cost book about the reality and practicalities of her walk with Jesus is well-worth your careful study. (For details and to buy visit CPO website.)

In view of my above remarks I note the chapter on the Coronation, in particular on ‘The Secret Ceremony’. This moment of the ceremony was too sacred to be televised because it was when the Archbishop of Canterbury anointed her as Queen. It reads in part.:

‘In that commitment, she follows the example of Christ who was also anointed, as the word ‘Christ’ means, and set apart not to be served but to serve and, in his case, sacrifice his life so we can have life which lasts forever. Royal biographer William Shawcross wrote:

‘When Queen Elizabeth was crowned in 1953 she found, like her mother before her, an almost sacrificial quality at the heart of the service…It was the moment when the holy oil was applied to her, rather than her crowning with St Edward’s crown of solid gold, that was of supreme importance for the Queen. Indeed it was the most solemn and important moment of her entire life.’

May the Lord continue to bless her and move mightily in this nation and commonwealth. May Your Spirit move mightily, that this anniversary year becomes a turning point in our history where we repent and once again become a Christian and consecrated people in Holy Revival…


‘Archbishop Cranmer’ blogs in The Queen’s 90th: Happy Birthday Ma’am.:

‘God has saved her and she has lived long. The first two invocations of the National Anthem have been and are still being fulfilled. Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday is a cause of national celebration and personal joy. It is also a time for reflection and gratitude. Never in the history of British Monarchy has one reigned so old or so long. Nor, perhaps, has one seen so much social change and sweeping transition, at least in the absence of war and glorious revolution. And rarely has one been so devoted to Christ in the service of peace and reconciliation...’
