A couple of sources of information on Monday’s total solar eclipse across the USA, of which the second greatly expands upon the first: eg. insights from Hebrew meaning of the ‘heavenly X’ across the States: Continue reading
Thank you to Suzanne Payne of UKPW for alerting me to yesterday’s posting on Charles Shamp’s Facebook and which aligns with similar recent words and visions, all of which are for weighing with the Lord and His Word. Moreover, unusually frequent, prolonged dropouts on the internet prevented my completing and linking the footnote!!! – maybe the prince of the air just doesn’t like what’s coming? Charlie writes:
Keep your eyes upon Big Ben something supernatural is about to be seen. . .
As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say,
“My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”
Charles Shamp, 26th June’17
- This famous symbol of Britain has featured increasingly in recent prophetic material, as shown under this blog’s Big Ben tag (click and scroll down posts).
- It is not unprecedented for rare malfunctions or stoppages of the clock to happen at the same time as nationally relevant events; eg. on 27 May 2005 just prior to 40-days prayer for London called by Chuck Pierce after sighting sword over London prior to terrorist attack (see Library’s 2005: Big Ben Stops!).
- That event was recalled by Revd Dr Sharon Stone in her ‘Clarion Call’ of 2013 about the need to get ‘in sync’ with heaven’s time and I surmised maintenance scheduled for 2017 could signify it’s time to get Britain back into proper working order, both politically and spiritually (see Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben).
- 28/6 – I’d noted broadband was running at 1/3rd normal speed, which was probably a result of huge disruption caused by another cyber-attack across Europe & USA.
Time for my readers to get another update on how scientists view time (see Scripture & Science hub). Here, theoretical physicist Mekhi reminds us, “the theory of Special Relativity refutes (time’s) absolute existence”. NOW that fact has already been well-known from the days of Jesus Christ’s first followers because His lead-disciple Peter wrote, “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: with the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day” (2 Peter 3:8 NIV).
I submit, nevertheless, that the concepts of ‘proper time’ and its associated ‘world-line’, ‘world-sheet’ and world-volume’ could be a way into scientifically grasping how the scriptural equivalent of Newtonian, classical laws of action and reaction – ie. sowing and reaping (Gal 6:7-9 ‘rule of life’) – manifest spiritually as well as materially through generations. Also, events of modern history foretold in biblical prophecy may come into such a study. Mmm, most interesting Mekhi, thank you very much.
Today’s post revisits one of my favourite themes in Theoretical Physics – time. In previous posts we’ve looked at the idea of the present and how the theory of Special Relativity refutes its absolute existence – and we’ll be drawing on this idea again here. Today I want to discuss the idea of ‘proper time’ and tell you what it is, alongside a deeper explanation of the geometry of spacetime.
Back in the day it was believed by many, including the great Newton who put together the three laws of motion, that time was absolute. This meant that wherever you went in the universe, a clock at one end of the cosmos would be ticking in synchronisation with one at the other. As though, there was a universal time, running on an almighty clock in the sky and all other clocks in the cosmos would adhere to its pace…

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.)
A slightly different display is set up each Maunday Thursday, the night of which Jesus and the twelve leading disciples ate Passover Seder early (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 would 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 – 1 Cor 15:6)
A BIT OF THEOLOGY
Jesus Christ died so that each of us may be forgiven for our sins. As a result of this new status, we now have direct personal access to God. As the Son of God, He suffered on our behalf as our ‘scapegoat’. That is, Jesus took the place of death that we deserved because of our sinfulness, for the shedding of a sinless one’s blood was the only way our status could be changed for us to gain personal salvation. Apostle Paul put it thus to the Romans:
8But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. (Romans 5:8-11, NIV, see whole chapter.)
Now, when I was a new Christian I found that rather hard to understand – but it works! The theological term is ‘atonement’, or ‘substitutionary atonement’. In bringing forgive-ness to the guilty, however, this can cause deep problems for those who’ve been the victim of crimes. After all, why should a killer find forgiveness by God? And what about the victim’s families, or the victim of abuse? They find it very hard if well-nigh impossible to forgive.
In 2012 I heard a Portsmouth prison chaplain address this issue with a concept taken from the criminal justice system: restorative justice. This involves active dialogue between victim and offender, plus reparation. And it has a sound basis in theology. How?
Jesus was a guiltless victim, directly of those who wanted Him killed, and indirectly of everyone’s ‘fallen state’ of sinfulness, which could only be rectified by His death.
And Almighty God, the Father, is a victim too. How? He’s victim of humanity’s rebellion against Him. For example and especially over the way religious leaders murdered His son – how they seethed with rage when Jesus denounced them! (read Luke 20:9-19). So, every victim can find an identity and affinity in both God and Jesus Christ in their situation. Hence, they can receive God’s own ability to forgive because He will help them choose to forgive those who’ve harmed them. [Lack of forgiveness may be the only thing that hampers God – see Matt 6:14-15]
A TABLEAU IN TIME
During contemplation upon the tableau illustrated above, an insight dropped into mind that the Resurrection created a distinct point in the flow of, or perhaps even a change in, time itself. That is, the now termed ‘common era’ calendar is the medieval Christian one that counts years from the approximate birth of Christ as ‘anno Domini’. But in fact, a more powerful one would be the point at which things in heaven changed and thus affected our lives on earth and its ultimate role in God’s scheme of creation. This took place at the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, His revival to life from death itself.
That such a concept may be valid can be found in the discoveries about the material of ‘The Shroud of Turin’, the shroud in which Jesus was thought to have been carried and covered during His interment. It is of most astounding significance when examined from the view-point of modern physics.
Putting the supra-natural aspect aside for the moment, that unique, most singular event could have naturally happened by means of a ‘singularity’ (a theoretical gravitational effect associated with ‘black holes’, eg. as may have been the starting point of the creation of the universe, or ‘Big Bang’).
Don’t take my word for this but consider that of Dame Isabel Piczek (dec’d 2016), famous as a monumental artist and award-winning figurative draughtswoman. Her highly detailed analysis of theories about how the image on the shroud was formed is authoritative, as in the first of several detailed articles here.
Also, as a physicist who may have considered implications from a quantum mechanics standpoint, her conclusions about how the image was formed are most intriguing: it seems that the image of Jesus can only have been created by its hovering equidistantly above and below his reclining bent corpse. Furthermore, this necessitated the body’s levitation – perhaps not an impossible feat during the moment of the Resurrection power-blast? After all, the disciples had witnessed Jesus walking on water and were yet to see His levitating into the clouds!
Dame Isabel succinctly summarises:
We have a piece of cloth and it leads us to a mysterious gate which opens for us, and it lets us see a completely different world, an extraordinary world with extraordinary laws.
Consider these claims by reading those articles and watching this 19 minute of extracts from the DVD The Fabric of Time (with its own lead-in trailer). There’s also a discussion of her scientific opinion at In Case You Missed Isabel Piczek’s Wonderful Paper.
‘Coincidentally”, just after having read the last link and revised the preceding references to science (post published 5 years ago), I’m alerted to theoretical physicist Mehki’s new post on ‘black holes’ and ‘event horizons’ (see Looking to the Horizon). The discussion thread has a valuable contribution from ‘physicalrealityblog’ that’s pertinent to the Shroud site’s discussion of Dame Isabel’s analysis and indirectly reconnects it back into quantum physics!
PS. ‘Coincidentally’ amusing that bloggers ‘hidden’ on opposite sides of the world (Britain and New Zealand) were preparing items on the fabrics that Jesus Christ was buried with – the full-body shroud and the head linen – in Joseph of Arimathea’s private tomb. My post updated on Wed 12 was scheduled on Thurs 13th for auto-publication Sun 16 April. On Good Friday 14 April Joanne Rolston published news of the ‘Sudarium’ (see next post).
Many thanks for this very useful summary and how well timed in view of one of my readers’ comments on vision of heavenly council meeting on UK. For a summary of Mark’s theories read Four Signposts of the Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse.
Many have asked for a chart to put together the main events of the end times from the Signpost perspective. Timelines can be dangerous because they can be followed too closely and relied upon too much.
But I also realize the utility of timelines and how with one picture they can relate events to one another. I also started to notice some real dates as I dug in a little deeper which were very close to the opening and closing dates of the Jewish seven-year cycles. Also, it looks like big events usually don’t happen on the cycle start/finish, but a cycle can have a theme. Like for the First Signpost, the five cycles thus far are: conquest, conquest, WMD/bow, making the lion stand, continuing to watch the lion.
Each of the remaining Signposts being assigned to their own cycle was just a guess; however, the Bible itself gives us…

Have you ever felt fetters fall away? The invisible, spiritual sort that satan shackles all those with who allow it a foothold to gain a grip upon their souls. The time that happened to me is etched upon my soul. Upon internally hearing, “Burn what you’ve collected – now!” I took articles from my life spent in occult study into the garden, put a match to them and repented. Immediately, I unmistakably felt heavy chains fall from both wrists! As in Charles Wesley’s glorious hymn ‘And Can It Be?’ – “My chains fell off, my heart was free. I rose, went forth and followed thee!”
Thus, the following two words circulated by UK Prophetic Words on this theme resonate deeply with me. Although 12 years apart, the timing seems significant (see footnote):
Kathy Laity (Hephzibah House of Strategic Prayer, Cornwall) Tues 28th March 2017
I’d been agitated all day (as had others on team here) but since midnight was really praying re Brexit. Immediately felt God say “DECREE don’t pray!”.
I started to decree “Brexit shall happen in the name of Jesus!”.
Immediately, I saw a massive sledgehammer slam down on a huge, thick chain link. I kept decreeing. Each time I did the sledgehammer fell. I saw the first link break, then became aware of another. Kept decreeing until it broke, then two further chains. At this point I saw they had been around the legs of a large male LION. Now I could see a thick iron collar, blindfold and muzzle. I kept decreeing. The iron collar opened and dropped off, as did the blindfold.
I could sense the lion’s anger and a roar building. The moment the muzzle fell away it roared mightily, leapt forward and grabbed the enemy, Satan, by the throat, shaking and dispatching it (rather like Aslan with the white witch). I kept decreeing but now the scene changed.
The lion had on a royal red robe, was wearing a crown and had a sceptre of authority. I knew it was releasing MANDATES. There was an immense sense of PEACE, ORDER, and AUTHORITY.
My sense throughout it all was that the LION was representing GREAT BRITAIN (as is often seen on the coat of arms) and that the enemy was responsible for the shackles. The lion’s STRENGTH on being released was immense.
WENDY ALEC: VISION FOR GREAT BRITAIN 15th July 2005 – excerpts:
Then the Lord showed me a large lion – and He said – “This lion represents the nation of Great Britain” – And it was a shocking sight – for where the lion should have been filled out and sleek and gleaming – it was almost a skeleton – and its mane was barely visible – and its coat was covered in mange – and its roar which should have shaken the nations in its power and in its ferocity was strangled and barely audible. And the Lord said, “This represents both the glory of this nation at present and the state of My Church as a whole in Great Britain”. And I saw in great letters – the words – “THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN AND THE LION SHALL ROAR AGAIN.”
And the Lord said – “Bring back My glory – Bring back My glory that your nation may once more walk in the glory of its destiny – and the Church may show forth My glory” – And the Lord showed me huge flourishing green tree that was planted in the European mainland – its huge trunk seemed to be PLANTED in BRUSSELS and the foliage had grown so dense that the trees branches and foliage had grown over the English channel and covered Britain in a great dark shadow and thousands of smaller offshoots and branches had taken deep root in Great Britain – and I saw the roots tangled and grown into London and then through the British Isles up all the way to Scotland.
The Lord said – “These are the deep roots of secularism and humanism that have taken deep root in this nation – these are the roots that are eroding this nation’s faith!” And I saw thousands upon thousands of people bowing in obedience to this tree and the roots were tightly twisted around their ankles – but they seemed totally unaware of this – that they were bound – and so they rejected the faith of their fathers – and I saw a great scoffing and a great decline in the traditions and the foundations of the past – and this mass of people was divided into two camps – the first huge mass of people whose ankles were bound by the gnarling roots of the green tree from Europe were younger and seemed more modern in their approach – and I saw written over their head – ‘UNBELIEF’ – ‘CYNICISM’ – ‘HUMANISM’ – and the foliage and green leaves seemed to shadow their heads – and I sensed that they were being attacked at a cerebral level.”
But the second group seemed to be those whose roots and foundations were from the established traditional denominations of Britain – yet they were just as affected as this first group – but I saw written over their head – ‘PRIDE’ – ‘SKEPTICISM’ – ‘CLOSED MINDEDNESS’ and I sensed that the roots around their ankles had bound them in a different manner – that even if they heard the call of the Spirit in these days that the spiritual forces had them so bound that they could not move with the tide and the times of God – and I saw the green foliage literally cover and shadow their foreheads and eyes and I saw the word blinding.”
And I said to the Lord, “Father – what does this mean?” And He said – “The spirits that led Europe into post-Christian decline – have invaded Great Britain over these past decades – and have infiltrated and overshadowed the nation with the same humanism and paganism and secularism – and yet Britain is still so blinded by her roots and her foundations that she is still declaring herself a Christian nation” – but the Lord says that – “She has been shackled by the enemy.” And I said “Lord what can break the shackles?”
And the Lord spoke and said,“The prayers and fervent supplications of My saints in Great Britain – the repentance for the sins of commission and omission on behalf of the governments of Great Britain – on behalf of the people of Great Britain.”
Then as people dropped to their knees all over Britain from every walk of life and denomination – the lion started to change – and He grew strong and sleek and his roar grew stronger. And I saw written in the spirit – “Create in me a clean heart O God – and renew a right spirit within me“. And as the people started to seek the face of the Lord I saw the word ‘COURAGE’ – and I knew that in the spirit realm that Great Britain had been endowed from the beginning of time with the mantle ‘COURAGE’ – and the Lord said,
And God said Britain has yet to move into her end time destiny in the nations – And I saw again in great letters – the words –
“THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN”.
And the lion’s roar by now had gained strength.
- read this awesome vision in full, with footnotes clarifying date of publication.
- Wendy received it on the 8th day after the 2005 attack upon London Transport.
- Today is the 8th day since the attack beneath Big Ben in Westminster.
- Biblically, 8 signifies resurrection and regeneration, a new beginning!
- nearly 12 years have elapsed since her vision and 12 symbolises government.
Bob at Socialtraders added this informative observation to the post on Fascinating Flow of News re. Dreams about Big Ben:
“What a fascinating coincidence that after so many years, Big Ben in the Westminster Tower is to fall silent for some months. The long, overdue repairs will be carried out while the terms for Britain’s historic exit from the EU are considered. There is also a warning that the sheer volume of legislation required to position the U.K. for BREXT will dominate parliament’s timetable with other issues being put on hold.
“Surely, this is a time like no other to pray for the UK and to seek the face of God in a day of apostasy.”
The initial timing of that news – 26 April last year – as published in The Guardian, is worth noting!
Almost three years earlier, in October 2013, the internationally renowned Revd Dr Sharon Stone issued a ‘Clarion Call’ for Britain and Ireland, especially for England not to miss the Day of Visitation. Therein, she delivered words of prophecy for each nation for the period 2014-2016 and that England was ‘out of sync’ or in a different time-zone spiritually, as in this from the Lord:
“But I’ve given you a door, I have given you an opportunity that during this time you can get caught up and be ‘in sync’ and that you are not going to be behind, or lose your destiny in any way, but instead you’re going to have to depend upon the Spirit of God to get you caught back up to be in the right time at the right place.”
[Sharon had referred to the unexpected stoppage of Big Ben on 27th May 2005, the day before Chuck Pierce called a 40-day intercession immediately before the terrorist attack on 7th July.]
She then brought specific words for England and closed by emphasising the rapid timing of coming events with this very accurate forecast when speaking of a ‘clash of kingdoms’. Here’s my report from that mentoring day:
“Now God says the battles are going to be in Great Britain. Let me tell you why I believe it’s going to be here: where there are great battles there are great victories!
“So God’s not saying, I’m choosing you as a place of war, I’m choosing you as a place of conflict, because I don’t like you…No, the Lord says,
“I’m choosing you as a place for victory, so that the victory won here has an ability to be a victory that affects other nations!”
“Do you hear this? Not just for England, or for Great Britain. So what God is doing is He’s setting up His own agenda that we might have a victory here that releases us to deliver other nations, and puts us back into a functioning position of where our true identity is.
“And we’re not talking about something that takes 10 years to come to pass any more (as with other things) but we’re talking about the next two and a half to three years! Those who have ears let them hear!” (Emphasis added)
Note: “Two and a half to three years” means APRIL to OCT 2016, the lead up to the UK’s referendum vote to leave the EU and subsequent aftermath of nations being shaken!
Perhaps one meaning of Tony Puccio’s latest dreams about Big Ben could be that the maintenance works, starting any time now and taking three years, signify it’s time to get Britain back into proper working order, both politically and spiritually? Then we shall stand much taller than before!
Hopefully, it’s all part of the Spirit of God’s catching England up “to be in the right time and right place” and thereby aligning us with the Kingdom of Heaven.
So we have much to mull over with the Lord and to wait upon…
The ancient Celtic saints’ concept of sacred spots – where heaven touches earth – may have a scientific aspect as a ‘quantum’ veil says Phil Mason, author of Quantum Glory.
Our ‘current trilogy’ of another look at the meeting place of scripture and science now includes Phil’s article posted on his website on 11th September. In view of my recent reflections upon Greek meanings buried behind our English translations, I especially note his focus upon that too.
I didn’t include the post with other science-related posts at the time to avoid any possible intellectual indigestion. Even so, his seminal work had already been introduced in Does Extraterrestial Intelligence Exist? Part 1 & Part 2.
First, an intriguing definition of ‘non-locality’ (emphasis added):
‘Another of the remarkable features of the microscopic world prescribed by quantum theory is the idea of nonlocality, what Albert Einstein rather dismissively called “spooky actions at a distance” …‘Nonlocality describes the apparent ability of objects to instantaneously know about each other’s state, even when separated by large distances (potentially even billions of light years), almost as if the universe at large instantaneously arranges its particles in anticipation of future events….’ (The Physics of The Universe )
Now over to Phil Mason:
Faced with the triple realities of quantum non-locality, the existence of God and the supernatural intervention of God we can move forward to theorise the relationship between these three fundamental realities of our supernaturally crafted universe. As we explore this dimension of non-local quantum reality in greater depth I will propose that this invisible layer of quantum reality acts as some kind of interface between the presence and power of God (who exists in the spiritual realm) and the world of matter.
The non-local quantum world appears to be some kind of invisible, intermediate ‘buffer zone’ between spirit and matter. It would appear that the non-local quantum realm has been strategically crafted by God to be directly responsive to the influence and activity of the Spirit of God so that these non-local quantum realities are capable of ‘materialising’ into a localised spatial formation. Quantum realities are the building blocks of matter. This is now an established scientific fact!
I have been exploring the nature of the creation of the heavens and the earth through the lens of quantum non-locality and the wave-particle duality. But before I can get to that subject, we need to delve deeper into this phenomena of quantum non-locality. I am proposing the simple theory that this twilight zone of quantum non-locality is the interface between two worlds. This is by no means an outrageous speculation in the light of trends in the scientific community.
Even purely secular physicists such as Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking and many others have embraced an idea called the ‘Many Worlds Interpretation’ as a way of resolving the quantum paradox. Richard Feynman said, “I think we are forced to accept the Many Worlds Interpretation if quantum mechanics is true” (ref 1). Stephen Hawking is a big fan of this interpretation. In fact, in a poll of 72 leading cosmologists and quantum theorists 58% claimed to believe in the Many Worlds Interpretation (2). That is almost 6 out of 10!
This theory was developed by an American physicist called Hugh Everett. Everett argued that there is no such thing as the wave function collapse when it is measured by an observer. Instead the act of quantum measurement causes a splitting into two parallel universes: one in which the sub-atomic particle exists as a particle and the other in which it still exists as a non-collapsed wave. This theory has given rise to the science fiction popularisation of the concept ‘parallel universes.’ Scientists who have embraced the Many Worlds Interpretation have sought to explain the phenomena of the double-slit experiment as evidence that we live in a ‘Multiverse’ rather than a universe.
The Multiverse is a hypothetical set of possible universes that exist alongside one another in different dimensions, of which our physical universe is but one of a series of parallel worlds. I am not an advocate of the Many Worlds Interpretation because I believe in just two worlds: the world of spirit and the world of matter. But I wanted to make the point that the idea of parallel universes or merely the idea of another universe alongside our own is not an idea that is on the fringe of contemporary scientific thought. Many well-known scientists who have become popular authors subscribe to this view and actively promote it as a solution to the quantum paradox.
Jesus said, “My Kingdom is not of this world!” (3) The writer to the Hebrews indicates that Christ is the one through whom God “made the worlds” (4). Note that the term ‘worlds’ is plural not singular. We see this same term in a later chapter of Hebrews, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (5).
There are two worlds revealed in the Bible. Jesus frequently talked about this world and the world above. He said to those who opposed Him, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world” (6). On another occasion He said, “I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father” (7). Clearly, Jesus revealed that there are two worlds. There is this material world and there is another world that is above and beyond this physical universe because it exists in another spiritual dimension.
These two worlds are separated by a gossamer thin veil. They are continuously intersecting yet they are two entirely separate worlds. One is the world constituted by matter and the other is constituted by spirit. When Jesus walked upon the earth he displayed the supernatural powers of the world above which He identified as ‘heaven.’ Even when He was upon the earth He was still living in this other dimension called heaven. He said, “No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven” (8). The ‘Heavenly Man,’ Jesus Christ, displayed heaven on earth and revealed the kingdom of heaven everywhere He walked on earth. The gospels continually reveal His world breaking into our world.
The Bible talks about a ‘veil’ that separates heaven and earth. The book of Hebrews talks about entering “the Presence behind the veil” (9). Matthew, Mark and Luke all record that at the exact moment that Jesus died on the cross the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom, prophetically symbolising that through the atonement of Christ the way had been made for humanity to pass “through the veil” (10) into this supernatural world called heaven. Elsewhere in the New Testament we encounter another interesting concept that appears to communicate a similar idea to the veil. Paul talked about a ‘mirror’ or a ‘looking glass.’ He said, “For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face” (11).
Paul picked up this idea again in his second Epistle to the Corinthians where he deliberately dove-tailed the twin concepts of the ‘looking-glass’ and the ‘veil.’ He taught that whenever someone turns to Christ the veil is taken away (12). He then proceeded to teach that those who have turned to Christ are now able to peer through the looking glass into heaven in order to behold the glory of God. “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (13). The obvious suggestion is that God is on the other side of the veil. He is on the other side of the looking-glass, peering into this world. We are in this material world but through Christ we can now peer through the looking-glass into heaven.

Now and again along our journey we’ve mulled over the meaning of time and the likelihood of scripture and science meeting over the horizon. Here, Franco Guerri brings a clear, concise introduction to dimensions and relates them to the Bible. In particular, his insight on the Cross and infinity is most noteworthy (see reply to Tim Shey). If this is your cup of tea then you may like to read > Dimensions 2 – Randomness and Ignorance.
“In physics and mathematics, the dimension of a space or object is informally defined as the minimum number of coordinates needed to specify any point within it.”¹ It seems clear then, that God being infinite and eternal, or beyond time, would necessitate infinite “coordinates” to be defined. By definition, in-finite, cannot be defined. Hence He exists in infinite, un-limited dimensions. Can we not say that the entire Bible is a document from beyond time and space attempting to give sufficient “coordinates” in order to reveal God Himself to a people trapped in only a few dimensions?
If our senses were limited to perceiving only a two-dimensional reality having only width and height, what would we understand of the three-dimensional world we coexist with? Would a square express anything of what a cube is? When a sphere came through…

After yesterday’s early start to chauffeur a friend to/from Guildford I started summarising some dreams and visions of Big Ben striking midnight.
I closed with my off-the-cuff reply to ‘Tucson Tony’ asking for my ‘take’ on his dreams, but at the time of receipt I was very busy drafting. So I did a quick ponder…
I told him what flashed up as an answer: ‘My mediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now!’. Tony replied, ‘Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.’
BUT, I’d completely forgotten the content of our first-thing prayers that continue with the ‘Keep Praying & Bless’ cycle, as blogged last year. Yesterday we were at ‘Day 39’ for Cleethorpes and area (as well as locally) and part of the blessing for there is:
‘We bless you to be part of the Bride of Christ, to prepare for the day when He will come and fetch those who are waiting for Him’.
Now that’s what I call a ‘God-incidence’!
I trust you’ve had opportunity to note the feedback in the comments thread. Here’s a couple of them starting with Tim Shey’s subsequent remarks:
‘The photo of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben is significant. For some reason I forgot that Big Ben was connected to the Houses of Parliament.
‘Big Ben–center of time; Parliament–center of government. What starts in England will cause ripple effects throughout the world spiritually and politically. Brexit came first, then Trump won in the U.S.. Maybe Brexit will precede a U.S. exit from the United Nations.
‘More history: the English Civil War in the 1600s preceded the American Revolution in the 1700s. King James Bible in 1611–still very influential today. The Gospel preaching in Great Britain, especially after Queen Elizabeth I came to the throne, greatly influenced the spiritual/social/political formation of the American Colonies. The 1904 Welsh Revival preceded the 1906 Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles.
‘Again, after looking at the Houses of Parliament and the two hands pointing up to 12 on Big Ben: Parliament (spiritual and political government) and two 12s (a double anointing of government-influence): that is THREE WITNESSES OF GOVERNMENT–ANOINTED GOVERNMENT. The two hands pointing up (heavenward) to 12: heavenly government.
‘Prime Minister May meeting with President Trump was absolutely the Hand of God.’
[Tim re-blogged my post on her prophetically significant speech to the Republican Party.]
In Pauline Watford’s contribution I’m reminded of a video that I had in mind after writing:
‘Derek Prince, when teaching on End Times before his death (24 Sept 2003 in Jerusalem – RB), said that God’s clock was standing at five to twelve!
‘And the Supernatural Clock Acceleration in Bob Jones’ hospital room on 6th February and 13th February 2014 (see YouTube videos) was said to point to the church being lined up with heaven’s time when the hands of the clock stopped at midnight. I believe the spinning hands indicated past time, stopping briefly at 8 pm. to indicate Jesus’ incarnation and his launching of the Kingdom on earth, then spinning round again and slowing at 11.50 pm. until they stopped at midnight.
‘And 6th February 2017 was Queen Elizabeth’s Sapphire Jubilee, if that has anything to do with it!’
Now it just so happens that 13 months to the day before posting Dreams and Visions of Big Ben…I’d blogged Body of Christ Being Accelerated to Sync with Heaven’s Time on 14 January 2016 about the very video Pauline refers to and quoted Gary’s Beaton’s insight to those events. Do please watch…
At 2:45 mark of Gary’s phenomenal account he refers to the synchronisation at midnight. (Read About his Transformation Glory Ministries.) After commenting upon the numerical significance of the timings he explains (6:30 mark):
“Twelve is the number of divine government …you’ve got a ‘synching’ up at midnight – another 12 – God was emphasising that His government is coming into the earth right now in apostolic power. We’ve never seen it – we’ve been talking for a long time about it coming…”
LOL – so we’ve now covered 13th…14th…15th…February – whatever’s next?
Watch out tomorrow!!
In case anyone may not yet have read the two previous posts, or seen comments thereto, I submit for the record this chronological account of what I believe are highly significant visions and dreams about Big Ben together with perspicacious points from readers. I hope this brings clarification and I invite your prayers and weighing with the Lord.:
First, come with me into the recesses of this blog’s Prophecy Library as I unearth relevant data on the prophetical significance of Big Ben from 12 years ago… Continue reading
For this example of God’s Global Prophecy Signals we consider and weigh two slightly contrasting yet similar prophetic words published this morning in Scotland by Glasgow Prophetic Centre and in Australia by Lana Vaser Ministries.
First, we touch base sitting at the Lord’s feet.:
Lion Bites: “MY LIGHTS IN THE HEAVENS ARE VAST”
I heard the Lord say,
“Child, do not fear the darkness for it is in the darkness that I can whisper tender words, and you will hear them. It is in those times when I have you totally to myself, without distraction, that I have your full attention and I can show you my love in ways beyond human understanding.
“Oh how I long to bring you to that place where you can look up and see the vastness of the galaxies, the innumerable lights in the sky that I have called each by name. I long to show you the reality of eternity; of the timelessness of my power and love. You will understand the truth of how even in the darkest times my promises shine the brightest.
“So look up, don’t allow dark circumstances to cloud your vision, know that I have overcome the darkness and that nothing can snatch you from my eternal promises.”
This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD.
NEXT, from our elevated place sitting alongside Him we’re blessed with deeper, practical guidance (emphases added):
This morning as I went to make my coffee, I opened the cupboard to grab a mug and went to grab one of the ones I usually use. The Lord then whispers to me “Not that one, use the one with the OWLS”.
So I reach up to the top shelf and grab the coffee mug with the owls on it. The Lord speaks to me and says:
“I am highlighting OWLS again as a prophetic picture because as My people lean in, and reach up (pursue Me), I am giving them EYES to see in the dark. As they SEE what the enemy is planning, planting and plotting, what is happening in the dark, I am giving them heavenly wisdom to UNDO. Through the implemented wisdom of My heart in intercession and practical strategy, they will see these plans and assignments foiled in individuals lives, families, towns, cities and nations, before they are even implemented or have a chance to take root. Consequently, there will be a greater demonstration of My VICTORY all around.”
“First, the prophetic significance of an Owl is that it represents the “apostolic”. An owl can see things from a distance in very dark places. And it hunts rats. The church is moving into an age whereby they will go into the so-called “darkest places” and see exactly what needs to happen for Heaven to invade those situations. And they will hunt the “rats” of this age, the forces of darkness. The Kingdom of Heaven is coming like a flood, and the forces of darkness no longer have anywhere to hide! An apostolic focus whereby each and every member of the church will know they are sown like seed into the world, ready to terrorise the servants of darkness and usher in the Kingdom of Heaven!” (Quote by James Preston – jamespreston.org )
As I pondered this prophetic picture of OWLS.. The Lord then highlighted to me 2 Kings 6:8-12:
Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.”
The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.
This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”
“None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” (New International Version)
The Lord is giving His people who are pursuing Him, worshiping in Spirit and truth, EYES to SEE in the DARK what is being planned. He is giving His people EYES OF STRATEGY to move forward into VICTORY!!!!!!
Warning dreams, prophetic insight and sharper clarity is increasing in significant ways right now. When the Lord shows you a strategy of the enemy, don’t fear, ask for His wisdom and strategy and WATCH AND SEE how He is sending you in stealth, under the radar, through your intercession and other ways to DISARM AND OVERTURN TO JESUS NAME!!!
Listening to a Steffany Gretzinger instagram live video yesterday she mentioned 17 is the number of TOTAL VICTORY. It is also the number for ALIGNMENT. In 2017 the Lord is bringing ALIGNMENT and TOTAL VICTORY! There’s a greater “taking of ground” happening. The people of God are being awakened in greater ways to living on the offence rather than defence. There’s a great FOILING of the enemy’s plans that’s happening right now as God’s people LEAN IN and ask for EYES TO SEE in the dark.
You have been marked VICTORIOUS in Jesus name and the Lord is going to use you with your EYES TO SEE IN THE DARK to see the MANIFESTED VICTORY of JESUS released into the lives of others, cities and nations.
