End-Times Briefing 14: Book of Revelation’s importance – 10 key points

In his third annexure to Simplicity, Neil Mackereth asks and points out:

WHY IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION SO IMPORTANT?
10 KEY POINTS

1. It is the Culmination of The Bible Story. The denouement.
Could you imagine the Bible ending with the one-chapter book of Jude?

2. It Shows Jesus in His glory – As King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
So awesome that even His close friend John fell on his face as if dead when he saw Jesus. We know Jesus as prophet, teacher, priest, healer and so on – but here we see Him in all His glory.

3. It Provides Knowledge: to Defeat Misinformation. A challenge to false prophets and false doctrine.

4. It Provides Knowledge: to Help us Understand World Events. Revelation shows that God foreknew, He is in control, and His plan will not be thwarted.
Current events: Israel, 1948 and following; moves towards a new world order – a world economic system and a world governmental system.

5. It Provides Knowledge: to help us be pathfinder guides and watchmen for Israel.

6. It is a Basis for Evangelism.
It is my contention that the incredible significance and glorious wonder of so much fulfilled prophecy in the Bible, is so “undersold” that it indicates the church has been duped into veiling parts of the Word of God Any other prophetic book that was so absolutely accurate over so many events over such a long period of time, would be hailed and revered in awe and wonder by the secular world.

7. An antidote to complacency.
We now know enough to not be caught unawares.

8. Future Focus: it prepares us for what lies ahead.
Revelation tells us more about our eternal home and condition, rather than our current temporary state – more about the significance and urgency of the choice we, and all people, need to make.

9. Worship.
A book full of worship, and how to worship – 11 major songs that have inspired a multitude of hymns and choral works, songs etc.

10. Because God tells us it is Special!
It is the only book in the Bible that blesses the reader and the hearer (Rev 1:3) John wrote it as he saw it and heard it, which may account for its unusual style – he was continually being reminded to write down what he saw and heard, and then told not to change it! – Reveleation 22:18-19.

End-Times Briefing 9 cont’d: the deep significance of Hourglass & End-times Harvest dream

A couple of hours ago Veronika published this from our dear brother:

“Today I bring yet another striking, in-depth interpretation to the dream I submitted to you all yesterday…my good friend and co-labourer Prophet Abel Praise submits some revelation for the purposes of prayer. ENJOY!!!”

DREAM INTERPRETATION…; “THE GOLDEN REVOLVING DOOR OF THE AGES AND OF ETERNAL DESTINY…AND THE HOUR GLASS OF THE END-TIME HARVEST…!!

‘Oh such great honor that The LORD grants us eyes to see and pours out HIS Spirit that we may discern what The Spirit Of The LORD is saying that we may know how to march in this hour.

‘The profound calling this prophetic dream brings us at this time is a call to contend for; recover; and administer the time-gates; or better put; the prayer-watches assigned to us in this hour; as that is how we will effectively partner with The LORD in birthing in time and eternity; being the earth and the heavens under the jurisdictions we are assigned in this hour; the predestined counsels of great awakening; revivals, victories harvest and advance into territories; the Kingdom is destined to make in this season.

End-Times Briefing 9: Hourglass of End-time harvest – Veronica West

Late yesterday afternoon Veronika posted this on her ministry Facebook. Upon reading it Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS: The Significance of Bible Prophecy reacted,

“That is very powerful indeed…I also had clear direction that the time of allowing the wheat and the tares to grow together is about to end – the harvest of separation is about to begin.”

I reminded him of my hearing “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!” upon opening my Bible to re-read Matthew 13’s parable of the wheat and tares harvest – see Briefing 1, Why? and The End-game Is Now In Play (we were soon to become good friends).

Here’s Veronika’s Facebook version and this published on His Kingdom Prophecy:

AN URGENCY OF TIME; THE GOLDEN REVOLVING DOOR OF THE AGES and of ETERNAL DESTINY — THE HOURGLASS of the END-TIME HARVEST!

Last night I had a powerful dream that I would like to share for the purpose of Prayer.

This dream was incredibly complex and so I will do my best to describe what I saw, heard and felt in the dream. So please bare with me as I try to share and interpret what I saw, and what I believe The LORD is revealing.

As I woke from the dream in the early hours of the morning, I immediately began to draw what I saw in the dream (see pictures below). Continue reading

End-Times Briefing 8: Daniel and ‘The Wonderful Numberer’ Jesus Christ

Now we examine one of the sparkling gems, a radiant diamond, found in the treasure trove of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return. First a brief recap: 

The Invisible Hand, Victor Dunstan (Megiddo Press 1984)

As at the close of Briefing 7, Victor Dunstan’s reference to three dates, or Time periods of differing length, given in the 12th chapter of Daniel point to 1917, 1948 and 1992, is derived from Dr Grattan Guinness’ mathematical work.  Subsequently, three ‘interlude’ posts tell how Jonathan R Hill has taken that work further in two books. Amongst a veritable plethora of biblical topics and scriptures he examines in-depth the role of ‘The Wonderful Numberer’ – Daniel’s chief supra-natural informant.

In his ‘Introduction’ to Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, Jonathan echoes Chuck Missler’s frustration, as quoted in Briefing 5, by noting:

“So many in the Body of Christ are ambivalent towards the Lord’s mandate to watch, but the Lord wants the church to awake! Messiah’s words to the sleeping Peter are the Lord’s words to His living body, who are currently on the earth at the end of this age: “Could you not watch with Me for one hour?” (Matt 26:40 NKJV)

This is followed by, and I’m grateful to Jonathan for his kindly permitting publication (emphases mine): 

‘DANIEL’S VISIONS

‘Daniel was privileged to receive extraordinary visions which were sealed until the ‘time of the end’ when many will run ‘to and fro’ and knowledge will increase. An apt description of our current world when knowledge and data are readily available via the internet.

Daniel 12:4 (NKJV) – “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

‘The prophetic words of the Book of Daniel were sealed until the ‘time of the end’ – confirmed again later in the same chapter (Daniel 12):

Daniel 12:9-10 (NKJV) – And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed ’til the time of the end”. 10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

‘Daniel’s ‘time of the end’ is now.

‘Earlier in the Book of Daniel a ‘when’ question was asked, regarding the desolation of the Temple in Jerusalem. The question was asked to someone called the ‘Wonderful Numberer’ [19]. The questioner (the ‘holy one’) clearly knew that the ‘Wonderful Numberer’ had the answer to the ‘when’ question.

Daniel 8:13 (YLT) – “And I hear a certain holy one speaking, and a certain holy one said to the wonderful numberer who is speaking: ‘Until when [is] the vision of the continual [sacrifice], and of the transgression, an astonishment, to make both sanctuary and host a treading down?’”

‘As will be seen [20], the wisdom of the ‘Wonderful Numberer’, who answered the ‘when’ question, is part of the ‘understanding’ sealed until the ‘time of the end’, when the ‘wise’ will understand. Moreover, the ‘Wonderful Numberer’ will be shown to hold the ‘Key of David’ [21] – the significance of which will be examined in detail [22].’

Notes:

‘[19] The Hebrew word for ‘Wonderful Numberer’ in Daniel 8:13 is ‘Palmoni’ (Hebrew ‘לפלמוני’ – Strong’s number 6422) and is only found once in all scripture . It is a ‘contracted’ word and contains the elements of two Hebrew words. The first is ‘pele’ and the other is ‘ma-na’. The Hebrew word ‘pele’ means ‘wonderful’ (see Isaiah 9:6) and the word ‘ma-na’ means ‘numbered’ (see Daniel 5:25-26). So, this contracted Hebrew word ‘Palmoni’ literally means ‘Wonderful Numberer’”. Taken from F.C. Gilbert’s book, Practical Lessons for the Church of Today, pp. 606-608, published by The Review in 1902.

Gill’s Exposition states: ‘another angel said to him that spoke, whose name is unknown, only called such a one, or ‘Palmoni’, which some render ‘the wonderful numberer’ or ‘the numberer of secrets’ or ‘that has all secrets numbered’; and apply it to Christ, whose name is ‘Pele’, wonderful; the eternal Word of God, that is in the bosom of the Father, and knows all secrets, and the number of times and seasons, how long they will last; what created angels know not, he does; and therefore they apply to him for instruction and knowledge in hidden things.

The ‘Wonderful Numberer’ is found in few translations yet many commentaries acknowledge this translation including Albert Barne’s Commentary, John Gill’s Exposition, Geneva Study Bible, Calvin’s Commentary, John Trapp’s Complete Commentary, Matthew Poole’s Annotations, Treasury of Scripture Knowledge and E. W. Bullinger’s Companion Notes. (See StudyLight.org Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary Daniel 8:13)

‘[20] See chapter ‘Numbers, Triangles and Pyramids in Scripture’ and section ‘The ‘Wonderful Numberer’ as the Seventh Pyramid’.

‘[21] See chapter ‘Tools of the Watch’ and section ‘The Key of David’.

‘[22] See chapter ‘Tools of the Watch’ and section ‘The ‘Wonderful Numberer’ Holds the Key of David’.’  [Isaiah 22:22 << THAT NUMBER AGAIN! – RB]

Daniel 8:13-21 [Scripture For All Interlinear OT Hebrew]

NB: reference at note 19 to Jesus as knowing hidden things, ie ‘mysteries’, per recent post Kingdom Mysteries – Jesus Points to Mathematics (originally posted 6 April 2018).

Amusing ‘musical-jigsaw’ of End-Time Briefings

Can’t avoid chuckling whenever the Lord’s playing a game with me. Mulling over what I think He’s showing me about my End-Times Briefings, I recalled a prophecy given me in 2009 that, “An impartation like Daniel had is going to come into you and you will start understanding the ‘riddles’ of the Lord in a different way…”

In returning to the next Briefing (No. 8) I’d thought of bringing its originally drafted ‘end’ to its beginning, thereby wrapping up the previous Briefing on my first ‘jigsaw pieces’. Hoping to schedule the new Briefing for weekend reading, I ‘closed’ it last Thursday with:

“Perhaps the above copy pages will whet your appetite to learn more about watching for Jesus’ Return.” BUT I got nudged to continue: “Last year my wife was touched by the Holy Spirit and heard,It’s sooner than you think!” (see Back to Bible Basics: Direct Word on Jesus’ Return and Vision of Iran).

LOL! That reference to Iran takes us full-circle back to start of the ‘Invisible Jigsaw’ over 30 years ago, as told in Briefing 7. So I’d thought of making those remarks a postscript. BUT next, the ‘morning-after high’ brought an insight as I checked and tagged pages in Jonathan Hill’s latest book!

Astonished, I found one CONFIRMS the next Briefing’s number, and thus their sequence!

The full content of this series hadn’t been thought out in any depth but simply published as and when possible. In fact, I’d wanted to publish Briefing 8 in its own right over six months ago!

Chronologically from a personal viewpoint, the whole series would have a very different sequence, viz: No. 7, 5, 1, 2, 3, 8+, 6 and with 4 omitted as it was popped in on a whim! So Christopher Wickland’s vision of the Sign in the Sun would come last! However, what Jesus taught should be foundational and thus began this current series of Briefings.

Moreover, it dawned upon me that one cycle of 7 Briefings has been completed, with an intermission for a mathematical preparation for the next cycle. Thus, we’re starting the next octave as though going up a level, somewhat like musical notes: A, B, C, D, E, F, G (see Wikipedia image). Also likewise, this new cycle begins with examining a particular scripture in some depth.

Furthermore, we could regard the two cycles of Briefings like the staves for the bass and treble clefs in musical scores, our ‘interlude’ on mathematics the space in between them! Or better still: this post is the ‘Middle C’, which is the note that hovers between the two staves.

Bringing prophetic pieces together. How many? 8!

Next, we consider that maybe it wasn’t a ‘star’ or astronomical sign that sent ‘wise men from the East’ looking for a baby born in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, but a rare wisdom and visions bequeathed by the Hebrew prophet Daniel to a school of prophets??

Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return – Jonathan R. Hill

In our considering principles behind use of numbers and associated basic mathematics in the Bible, my catching up with the following news is timely – I’m pleased to learn that author Jonathan R. Hill is finding his researches also connect into Time!

Here’s the proofreaders’ clear recommendation circulated for Jonathan’s new book:

‘In this new book Jonathan reinforces the straightforward, but profound, mathematical principles of triangular and pyramid numbers and how they help reveal and reinforce wonderful truths in the Bible, using the numerical equivalents for the letters in each word in the original Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible.

‘These principles were initially studied in his first book (on The Sign Miracles of John – RB: as herein) and the results were fascinating, revealing important concepts that are relevant for both the Church and Israel in these end times. They now lay a strong foundation for this ‘Biblical Watch for Messiah’s Return’. These numbers are used in the studies themselves and help us to understand the types involved, and also the time periods that connect the important events that are highlighted.

‘Also included in this book are details of and revelations about the Jubilee Cycle, the important and ‘high’ numbers that there are in Scripture (like ‘120’), the time of day of Christ’s resurrection, the reason Anna had to wait 84 years to see the Messiah, the importance of the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the Armistice in 1918, the World Economic Conference of 1933, the 9/11 attack in 2001, the rescue of the Chilean miners in 2010 and even Brexit!

‘Jonathan also shows how the ‘Key of David’ gives ‘understanding’ in God’s presence and what ‘leaven’ means for the Church today.

‘It truly is a book which explores and explains the concepts that are needed to study, and ‘watch’ for, Messiah’s (Jesus’) return at the Rapture for his Bride, the Church.

‘This book is, in my opinion, the most important Christian book for the Church in the first quarter of this 21st Century.

‘May I encourage you to order a copy (and also the previous one on the Sign Miracles, if you’ve not already got it) and be blessed?

‘Jonathan’s website JR Hill – Books has links to buy both books and also his ‘New Watch Events’ page.

‘I have read both books out loud to Pat (as we have been proof-reading them). We have found that reading them to each other has really helped us both to understand the truths and the concepts they contain, and they truly leave us with hope for the future.

‘We commend this teaching to you.

‘Many blessings’

‘Keith and Pat’

Next, we learn the identity of one of Daniel’s sources as his ‘Wonderful Numberer’ >>

Prophetic interpretation of Veronika’s ‘US Seesaw’ dream

Yesterday Veronika followed up those two dreams about America and the nations:

I submit to you all a powerful prophetic submission sent to me this morning by a trusted friend and highly anointed Seer himself, and a man that truly carries a mantle to interpret dreams and visions. Here below, Prophet Abel Praise goes ahead to share what The LORD has revealed to him concerning the two dreams that I posted late last night.:

While reading his insights from The LORD, I am compelled to share them with those of you who take seriously the need for fervent and unrelenting prayer in this hour for the Nations…. for the nations are now at a divine tipping point!

(Please prayerfully consider sharing the insights below with your prayer partners and teams for there are many powerful prayer strategies and prophetic revelations that are being revealed… for such as time as this. )

“Pleasant Morning Dear Ma,

I trust you are well,

Always a great honor and delight reading what The Spirit Of The LORD is revealing through you.  Truly; very significant times and a call for wisdom.

Some very, very important highlights and prophetic call to action the dream reveals.  The boundary lines speaks of the priestly offices that bear the geographical authority of territories.

This posture reveals what the call to attention is; the geographical authority of lands and territories; the leadership across territories of lands and nations.

Then The WORD; “Watch [Prophetic] for The Weight of My Glory [Apostolic] will counter-act [Attorney] the wickedness and witchcraft in the Nations of the Earth; highlights the instrument of warfare — The Alignments of The Apostolic-Prophetic-Attorneys ministries are the instruments of war; whose significant governmental-revelatory-intercessory function will counter-act; will provoke a summoning for the wickedness and witchcraft playing out in the lands to be numbered and measured in the scales in Heaven’s Court; for a toppling of the twin evils of wickedness and witchcraft that have stood in a significant mountain in the nations of the earth.

This is what is revealed in Revelation 8; the prayers of the saints when rising and filling it’s measure became the censer in the hand of the Angel who then offered it; and the response being the decrees established in Heaven’s Court that went forth as lightnings, thunders, voices into the earth.

“And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.  And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake,”  Revelation 8:2-4.

Discerning the prophetic call to actions in prophetic newsletters from Heaven is significant to partnering and laboring to see the prophetic word fulfilled.

This is also what the next part of the dream emphasizes;  the unbalanced scales of Justice with bowls filled with all sorts of evil; the enemy dancing at the top of it; showed a perverse altar with strange demonic presence seated at a significant mountain that covers the nations.

The prophetic posture of intercession and crying out for Justice and Judgment you had in the dream; shows the prophetic posture and call to action required of The Body of Christ in this hour; the apostolic-prophetic-attorneys wielding intercessory power, the authority of witnesses; and the authority of representatives in heavens court praying in alignment will provoke the summoning of perverse wickedness and witchcraft to be weighed and measured in the scales.

Through the posture of prophetic intercession; The Spirit Of The LORD said; “Can the bowl that is full be emptied”?  Then the response; “Watch [Prophetic] for The Weight of My Glory [Apostolic] will counteract [Attorney] will counteract the wickedness and witchcraft in the Nations of the Earth.”

We must understand that; if the measure of sins of a land be full; two things are in view; either the time-cycle of iniquity could have been completed and ready to be judged and dethroned; or like the time of The Prophet Jeremiah; a righteous nation has fallen in sin and the enemy is at the point of laying accusations and presenting witnesses to gain a right to subdue that nation.

As it was spoken of The Israelites how they had murmured and tried The LORD ten times while in the wilderness and it was determined after the counting and numbering of ten; that they couldn’t enter the promise.

Also at the time when Jacob was to be redeemed from Laban;  the Angel said concerning this; how Laban had changed the wages of Jacob ten times.

We see again that after the counting and numbering of ten; a determination went forth for his redemption.

Discerning significant times like these through revelation by The Spirit Of The LORD can be what establishes a new generational season of righteousness for a nation.

These are usually significant times, tipping points, decision-making moments in Heaven’s Court that determines the direction of a nation for a season.

The prophetic call for intercession is now going forth through this significant prophetic dreams; as the call to action; and The LORD showing what the results will be; like Revelation 8; there would be the release of a Golden Plumbline that restores Righteousness and Justice; the Rains of Fire and Glory that will usher in restoration in the Nations of the Earth.

The second dream is also like unto the first.  The first dream highlights an International Mountain of Nations; while the second dream highlights The Mountain Of The Nation Of USA.

These are two significant prophetic newsletters from The Courts of Heaven showing two territories at a significant tipping point; and the call for the ministries that will effect a change through intercession and the wisdom to administer righteousness and justice in Heaven’s Court.

The seesaw is also speaking of The Scales And Balance; the Pivot with Trump; speaks of The Presidential Mountain of The USA; the donkeys and elephants within the American political sphere speaks of democrats and republicans.

However; elephants prophetically also represents The Glory; being Apostolic Governmental authority of reformation.

The prophetic rendering of Trump as [Truth, Righteousness, Unity, Mercy, Peace] is deeply significant; and a prophetic mystery that points to territories that marks the presidential authority of USA.

However; for understanding and gaining the posture The Spirit Of The LORD is calling us to bear.  The Presidential Authority and the territory assigned to the Presidency of The USA is being revealed; as significant in this hour for the discerning to labor through and cry out to The LORD; for wickedness, witchcraft and perversions to be put on the scales; for measurings, numberings to take place; and a restoration of the righteous covenants of these territories unto The LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST.

As Daniel wrote;

“In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of The LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
And I set my face unto The LORD God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed unto The LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments…” 
  Daniel 9:1-5.

To him that have ears…  “This is The Hour Of Wisdom”.

Warm Regards,
Abel Praise

RB Footnote: 

Abel’s references to Heaven’s Court are particularly interesting in view of my reading about operating there when presenting testimonial evidence against claims engineered by The Accuser against a worship song. (It was a veritable ‘courtroom drama’!)  By ‘God-incidence’ I found a helpful, unread book in our library and cannot, therefore, recommend it highly enough:

The Time of Reckoning is here — Wanda Alger

Quote

This direct word of stern exhortation to believers on the Lord judging the Church is aimed mainly at our brethren in the USA; yet as one would expect, it complements those recently received of the in-depth ‘directive’ for the global Church and upon the ‘humbling’ of Britain.  Herein, we’re taken to task for not rising to perceive the Lord’s perspective, yet encouraged to keep His purposes paramount:

This word is not for the faint of heart. I rarely give words in first-person from the Lord, but this one flowed out of me during a recent time of prayer as if I was transcribing a dictation. Though this is a strong exhortation, I felt the Lord’s deep passion concerning our plight as well…

Spiritual showdown, altars being rebuilt and wells reopened across Britain – Veronika West

Click image to run video

Section 8 of my paper The State of the Prophetic in the UK summarises the One Voice Prophecy Conference in Reading held 8th February 2020. The previous evening one of the guest speakers, Veronika West, told me she’d arrived without anything to share. So I was delighted upon my returning to the conference hall the next day, to hear her giving an unscheduled message on insights the Lord had given her overnight on what she’d sensed during her flight from Northern Ireland!! He alerted her to: “Get ready for the stage is set for a spiritual showdown!”

I was keen for this important message to be available and pleased when Geoffrey Pick posted his video of it on Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival (Facebook group). Last week he inserted a few points with regard to the covid-19 and Chris Moyler’s close transcript. I’m grateful for their kind permission to republish the full message. The 12-minute video of Veronika delivering this message may be watched on Fb by clicking either the following image or on Google via top of page picture (preferred):

VERONIKA WEST:

One Voice Prophecy Conference, Reading, 8th February 2020

The LORD said to me in a dream “How long, United Kingdom, are you going to falter between two opinions?” 

Elijah went before the people saying, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him. But if he is Baal, follow him.” (1Kings 18:21)

And we know what happened; there was a showdown. Elijah called for an altar to be built and filled its moat with water, and the prophets of Baal built an altar and they called upon their gods…Elijah began to mock them saying, “You’re going to have to call a little louder!”

(1:02mark) Then Elijah does something: He says one word and God sent his fire. And in this dream, I heard the Spirit of God say this (which is also a powerful proclamation):

“Get ready, get ready! For the stage is set, for a Spiritual Showdown is about to take place in this land! Watch! For now I am raising up a remnant that will Roar with a call for the rebuilding and the restoration of the broken-down Altars in this land.

(1:53) Listen! For a sound is beginning to arise from the ground of this prodigal nation. A sound of weeping and wailing will once again be heard, as the call to come to the altar returns to the land. Now, watch and pray and pay close attention, for a remnant mantled with the spirit of Elijah is rising in this land – one who will begin to roar, causing a Prodigal Nation to come back to its senses. A nation that was lost will turn, return and be reformed! Listen! Now is the time to repair and rebuild the torn-down altars in this nation.

(2:45) In the dream, I saw altars begin to be repaired and rebuilt in the nation. And I saw Scotland – I know that Emma and David Stark are here, and I don’t want to say this is for their ministry – but I saw an altar being rebuilt in Scotland. Then I saw an altar being rebuilt in Wales, and I saw an altar being rebuilt in Ireland, and I saw an altar being built in England. I saw altars being built all over this nation.

(3:18) But what was incredible is that as I saw the altars being repaired and rebuilt, I saw the Giants falling – I saw Giants falling! And, as the altars were being repaired and rebuilt, strongholds were being dismantled, demonic thrones were being overthrown. The I saw something incredible as I saw the altars being rebuilt – and I saw a weeping and wailing and saw many coming back to the altar. And the LORD said,

(4:02) “The words ‘altar call’ have not been upon the lips of My shepherds, but NOW I am restoring and I am putting back on the lips of My shepherds the words, “altar call.”

And as I heard the Lord say that I saw something amazing happen in the dream as I saw these altars being rebuilt. As they were being rebuilt I saw wells being uncapped and opened and I spoke with the Lord in my amazing dream (I speak to the LORD, to the Throne of Revelation in my dreams and I go back and forth), He said something – not strange, but the Lord said,

“Altars of awakening, wells of revival and restoration…It will take the apostolic grace to build the altars of awakening, and it will take the prophetic grace to uncap the wells of revival and restoration.”

(5:09) And then the dream shifted, and the LORD showed me a horse and an ox being yoked together in a field, and they looked uncomfortable. The horse had great strength, and he wanted to gallop; and the ox had his head lowered, ready to pull and to plough. The LORD said, and there was no sense that this yoking was oppressive,

(5:58) “I am yoking the apostolic and the prophetic, I am yoking them together in a new way in this next season.”

I saw that the prophetic horse wanted to run ahead, but the yoke prevented one going ahead of the other. The yoking enabled them to work together in humility, with their mantles of apostolic and prophetic grace, that God is releasing.

And the LORD had me prophesy as the altars were being built, that the wells would be uncapped and be open, and I saw the apostles building and rebuilding the altars, and the prophets were coming behind them, speaking to the wells of revival.

(7:05) I see altars being rebuilt across this nation, in north, south, east and west, and then I heard the Spirit say this about Reading,

“As the altars are being rebuilt across this nation, Reading shall become an altar, an altar where fires of revival shall fall. Reading will become a tower on a hillside that cannot and will not be hidden any longer. Reading will arise and shine when glory has come upon you. Watch, for all nations will be drawn to the brightness of your rising.”

Thank you, Jesus! And then  I heard the LORD say,

(8:03) “The Gates shall now become an altar, a place of fire, a place of revival… Even what is happening with the building, is highly significant and prophetic.” He said, “I am pulling down the old meeting place, because I am building a new altar in this place.”

(8:57) And as I was praying this morning for The Gates, as I was praying onto the ground of the Church, I saw angels very involved in dismantling different parts of the building. I had a sense that some of you here may be somewhat sentimental about the building, but the LORD wants you to know that HE is tearing it down! He is now repairing and rebuilding the altars.

(10:10) I encourage you, the leadership of the Gate. The LORD has chosen you because you have been faithful. Because you have been faithful in the little, I will make you faithful with much. And I saw the nations coming to the altar. I saw revival, I saw the outpouring, and I saw the fires fall. Thank you, Jesus!

(10:40) Prayer: “Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you for what you are doing in this nation at this time, in this season. We thank you LORD that you are releasing apostolic grace to rebuild the altars, and that you are releasing prophetic grace, and prophetic mantles to speak to the wells of revival and outpouring in this land.

(11:20) “So Father, we say, here we are! Thank you, Jesus for what you are doing in this land. You are bringing together the five-fold ministry, and you are bringing Reformation, Restoration and Transformation in this nation. You are not just rebuilding the altars, you are tearing down every demonic stronghold in this nation. You are overthrowing thrones of darkness that have been long established in this nation. We humble ourselves as apostles, prophets and shepherds, teachers and evangelists, and we come together LORD as one to turn the key, to see you do a great and an awesome thing in this land.”

[Veronika West 8.2.2020]

I believe this Spiritual showdown has begun in our Nation and we must CHOOSE WHOM WE WILL SERVE. I PROPHESY AS THE ALTARS OF AWAKENING ARE REBUILT  THE WELLS OF REVIVAL WILL BREAK OPEN. IT’S TIME!!’
  • [GP-May] ‘Amen – We are in a massive time shift forward from where we were in the natural what has been built in months would take many years to achieve – We are building a stronger team each day with more in place even today.’
  • [RB-Feb] Veronika’s prophesying about Reading being on a spiritual hill and of the Lord’s fire coming down confirms impression I’d brought at the conference’s planning meeting in November. It reminded me of a previous vision of decades ago in which I’d ‘seen’ an imploding (!) ‘atomic bomb’ with fireball rolling down Tilehurst hill and along the Thames Valley towards the capital, as told in June’s 2nd of four jigsaw pieces!
  • [RB-today] Listening and checking CM’s hard work of transcribing, Veronika’s speaking in detail on angels rebuilding The Gate, reminds me of an exceptionally powerful dream in September 2011 of seeing the Kingdom being set up by angelic teams. This ‘coincided’ with a prophetic word Bill Johnson brought about that date later being appreciated as of significance for the kingdom in Britain (as told in Father, Your Kingdom Come!).

Was pastor’s fatal heart attack to prevent God’s warning to Britain and apostate church? (GPS #47.3)

At last, a fortnight later than intended this double-post gets off-the-press – but as we all know; timing is everything for it is the Lord’s.

As announced here, the programme screened 22nd April shows pastor Christopher Wickland’s two heart attacks at a trampoline park last November. Its CCTV captured the terrifying ordeal of that day out with his daughter and two younger boys. Nick Knowles’ narration is split into an introductory account from 0:45 to 12:00 minutes. He summarises the situation at 21:00m, then proceeds with details of Chris’ recovery and wife Tracey’s prayer-network action.

The footage may distress some but it demonstrates the prompt, proficient skills of the park’s manager and assistant in giving CPR and FIVE shocks by defribrillator. The manager says the pastor was “effectively dead”!  Although he started breathing after the fifth shock he was taken to Southampton’s cardiac intensive care unit, his brain started to deteriorate as soon as his heart stopped and remained inactive. Victims are not expected to survive with fully functioning brain after prolonged oxygen deprivation. So Chris was put into an induced coma.

The account was previously told in Premier Christian News and BBC South Today, as herein, of when his 12 years-old daughter phoned her mother, who immediately alerted their church and many others to pray for her husband’s resurrection from effective death without any brain and heart damage whatsoever. Praise the Lord that He did.

AND our heavenly Father must have done that so that a prophetic word He’d given this pastor would get delivered – otherwise why bless him and then only hours later take him home to heaven?? I suspect something else wanted to suppress it!

NOTE very carefully what Christopher had written on his Facebook 11 days before the latest BBC programme:

[OR, wait a short while for the next post’s transcript of this prophecy.]

In that FB thread Christopher kindly agrees to my asking a professional stenographer to produce a transcript. A week later I commented upon our battle-situation:

“Just to update you Christopher: transcript recvd Thurs a’noon b4 long weekend offline but began working on draft lead-in upon bbc’s CConCamera – correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems the adversary didn’t want that word made public, so took you out of the picture, BUT the Lord came up trumps!

“There’s strong opposition to this as I’d awoken that full blogging day (Thurs) with badly bloodshot eye PLUS early Sat morning (25 April) my wife Nina took bad fall and broke her right kneecap – so we’re in recovery mode and my hands are even fuller. Y’day, our cat got attacked by a vicious tomcat that disturbed her in our greenhouse, chasing her to the house!!”

He responds  “Gosh. You have gone through the wars. Yes agreed. When I received the word I sensed the enemy was really angry with me for knowing his plans. But God got the victory and the glory and the word still got released. He is so good. Will be praying for your protection.”  (Emphases added)

HE IS RISEN! – Time and Quantum effects in Jesus’ Resurrection

First published in the early years of this blog and repeated annually:

In preparation for the Holy-days’ weekend Nina creates a tableau for contemplating Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. She’s inspired about what items to collect and arrange, usually including a rock with a central hole eroded by the sea and which we found on a beach. It serves as both the ‘skull’ and garden tomb of Golgotha. For example, the above display has a scarf as a ‘river of life’ flowing out of the empty cave/tomb below the cross. (In 2012 it gave an insight that I’ll share below.)

Maundy Thursday is celebrated as the night when Jesus and the lead-disciples ate an early Passover Seder, or meal (see video explanation). Following the meal, one disciple betrayed Him by leading Temple guards to capture Him at night for trial by a ‘kangaroo’ court of Jewish leaders.  It was a foregone conclusion that they’d demand authorisation of His death from Pontius Pilate, the Roman Prefect, or governor, of Judea.

If you’re unfamiliar with this true story and how it led to Jesus’ gruesome torture, death and burial followed by his amazing bodily resurrection and appearance to His disciples, read doctor Luke’s investigative account and the personal account of Jesus’ closest disciple John. (Later, a Jewish leader violently opposed to them but who encountered Jesus en-route to Damascus would write He was seen simultaneously by over 500 – read 1 Corinthians 15:6)

A Maundy Thursday Musing

The Cross at Ffald-y-Brenin, ‘miraculously’ provided and located as directed by the Lord.

[First published 2016]

Reflections upon the events of Jesus’ betrayal and execution whilst we were on a Quiet Day’s ‘Appointment in Jerusalem’, added to my ongoing meditation upon His personal prayer made, not in the garden of Gethsemane, but earlier in the upper room at the close of their Passover meal (John 17). That ‘celebratory remembrance’ proved to be more than a ground-breaking event. It was truly a heaven-breaking-in pivotal time in human history in which Jesus offered up Himself as the Paschal Lamb, not only for His first disciples but also for everyone who would ever believe in Him – eg. you and me! AND enable everyone to come into the full freedom of salvation from their sins and satan’s consequential authority over their lives – should they so choose. Continue reading
