Prophetic warning and words: Battle for the Gates of the Nation

Posted Saturday 13th June 2020

A week to the day after Lisa Tierney posted a call to pray against random stabbings a Libyan terrorist ran amok killing three people in Forbury Gardens in central Reading, Berkshire.

Yinka Oyekan, pastor of The Gate in Tilehurst, Reading, posted on this prophetic word on his Facebook yesterday:

THE BATTLE AT HAND IS A BATTLE FOR THE GATES OF THE NATION 

(Last night I I started the evening in tears and deep grief and pain over the senseless killings in a beautiful public garden in our town, I stayed up to pray and Father downloaded this word to me)

“I am calling the United Kingdom back to righteousness

“Understand this, my heavenly activity always attracts demonic opposition. Therefore, speak to my Daughters, speak to Bristol, Reading, Southampton, Kent, London and Birmingham. Speak and do not be silent; tell my daughters to raise up their watchmen pick up their shields, strengthen their gates, gather their nobles and sound their trumpets, let her priests burn incense .

“Tell Bristol that she shall be a breaker of chains. I have seen her people throw of the stench of historic abuse, I have watched them cast down her idols and throw off the yoke of slavery. Tell Bristol I will give her a new identity, I will fight for her, heal her and restore her. Tell her to turn to me that she might have clean garments.

“A great renewal is coming to Reading, but it will be through much sifting. The Gates have been shaken, but I have heard her cry and seen her tears. I promised you My glory shall visit, and the time is drawing close; speak to Reading say to her ‘Fear not precious daughter for your gates shall be fortified, you were a place people passed through, but no longer, you shall be a place people flock to, a great spiritual awakening is coming’.

“Tell Southampton that she will be a beacon of light. I will ease her infrastructure and lighten her load, for she has spoken up and eased the burden of my people.

“Speak to Kent and tell her to get ready. She shall be a source of a new cultural renaissance. Call it forth, speak it out, declare it, says the Lord. No longer on the edge but at the centre of an artistic and cultural awakening

“Speak to Birmingham and remind her that she is called to leadership. Let the sleeping giant rise for you will be more than the heartbeat, you will be a source of great economic strength for you have laboured on behalf of the poor.

“Speak to London and remind her to be kind, to be patient to serve. Tell her watchmen, I am still in the process of redistributing power, what you see is not the end of the story, there is more to come, for the old power structures are being dismantled. But I will still strengthen Elizabeth for she honours me, I will take her along a new path but she will have to be a peacemaker for she fears My name, her wisdom will be called upon, and I will bless William for his compassion, his charity and his love for his fellow man, a man in whom there is no guile.

“Tell my daughters that as in the days of Daniel, angelic help is on the way. Daniel prayed with perseverance – do likewise.

“And Son don’t be discouraged, remember I am with you”

In the early hours as I prayed my heart was greatly strengthened my spirit revived and my pain eased although the deep sense of grief remains as I feel the pain of my town weigh heavy on me. Pray for the families affected in our town.

THE READING TERROR ATTACK; FORBURY GARDENS…”THE LION OF JUDAH IS ROARING AT THE GATES….THE POWERS OF THE ENEMY SHALL BE PUSHED BACK…THE WALLS SHALL FALL AS MY GLORY RISES IN THE NATION”…!!

Last night as the news broke about a terror attack in FORBURY Gardens in Reading my heart cry was Father have Mercy…,as those words came out of my mouth I heard the sound of the ROAR OF THE LION OF JUDAH….and I saw the FORBURY LION STATUE come up before me and I heard these words…“THE LION OF JUDAH IS ROARING AT THE GATES OF THIS NATION”…,as I heard the Lion of Judah Roar I saw a battle unfolding in the realm of the Spirit and I heard these words…”There is a battle for the Gates of this Nation”...but then I saw His Glory at the Gates….I saw the Captain of Angel Armies and a multitude of Warring Angels at the Gates and I heard the Spirit say,

“LISTEN!!! FOR THE ROAR OF THE LION OF JUDAH CAN BE HEARD AT THE GATES OF THIS NATION….BUT WATCH FOR JUST LIKE THE WALLS OF JERICHO THAT CAME TUMBLING DOWN, SO THE WALLS OF RACISM, INJUSTICE, DIVISION AND DESTRUCTION WILL COME CRASHING DOWN…I say to you Beloved, it’s time to Rally the Troops, to Awaken the Mighty Warriors for a Battle waits at the Gates…but I say FEAR NOT for My Glory shall Arise to push back the powers of darkness that threaten to overthrow the Destiny of this Nation…I say this Nation shall BE SAVED AND THE GATES SHALL BECOME A DOORWAY THAT LEADS TO TRANSFORMATION AND REFORMATION IN THE NATION”..!

AMEN and again AMEN.

Historical Footnote:

References to battle for this nation are historically resonant because centrally placed, the Forbury Gardens would possibly have been the perimeter of the Viking camp built 1,150 years ago at the river Thames’ south-bank confluence with the river Kennett during their invasion and attempt to conquer Wessex. The future king Alfred and reigning brother Aethelred’s army got close to the encampment only to be beaten back by the emerging Vikings (Reading Museum and Wikipedia Battle of Reading). The Forbury Gardens are situated on land at the western end of Reading Abbey, as established in AD 1121 by Henry I (see paper for town churches’ spiritual mapping).

Prophecy coming to pass: ‘man-made virus’ (F/P #162.10 cont’d)

Further to my asking does security intel validate a word on the origin of the covid-19 pandemic, as indicated by US Secretary of State Pompeo, the former head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove has discussed further details in an exclusive interview, as below.

In that post I covered some ideas on the virus’ origin and possibility of it having been engineered, and reported,‘This generated an interesting flow of information in parallel with dealing with true and false prophets, questions over whether or not the situation is directly from the Lord and how it relates to scripture and End-times – even believers’ confusion over it all…

‘And so I mulled all those matters over in my mind last Monday night…Upon waking Tuesday morning, 24th March, I thus asked the Lord, “Is the pandemic from You?” ~ and then got the immediate answer: “No, it is man-made!!”

Further validation appears in an article published in last week’s Telegraph: Exclusive: Coronavirus began ‘as an accident’ in Chinese lab, says former MI6 boss and, in view of the depth of discussion it is important to read the full article. Alternatively, read the overview in its former editor Charles Moore’s op-ed Was Covid-19 created in a lab?

Prophecy coming to pass: ‘viral, virtual church’ (F/P #167.2)

News headlines of Sunday services crashing the internet (and Dr Sharon Stone having prophesied last November: “There is going to be a church-planting movement that is virtual and viral in the earth; not taking the place of the Church at all”) hardly came as a surprise to Dr Pete Philips, Head of Digital Theology at Premier Christianity.

In Coronavirus: What is God up to? (published on 27th May) this researcher explains with the help of a couple of graphs, how the latest surveys and statistics support claims that God is doing something special in the global Church right now. Continue reading

Word of Discernment: The battleground has shifted – cont’d

Click here to read Parts I and II with brief background to these posts >

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED III: THE ANCIENT BATTLEFIELD OF THE PROMISED LAND

We are the generation that crossed into the promised land; but the wars on the way to the promised land are pale in comparison to what is in the promise. The temptation and battles that cohabiting with demonic ideologies bring leave one in a long-stretch tug-of-war.

The Scriptures shows us how their failure to wipe out demonic structures in the land became their greatest undoing. In a moment in time, a righteous king will emerge and lead unto victories; and they would have rest for a season; and afterwards another king would come who would do injustice and service the perverse altars and they would be besieged in their land for a longer period of time; and this tug of war continued for so long a time, much longer than the sum of times they spent in Egypt and on the way to the promise.

The promised land is an ancient battlefield; it has been the call from the beginning; and is the destination; it is the land destined to rule over other lands, but a greater challenge is being besieged even in the promised land; a place destined to be a place of rest. We are the generation crossing into the ancient battlefield of the promise; the battlefield has shifted. For nations exiting national councils and covenants that have been a strong yoke; the battlefield has shifted; to dwell in safety; we must labor to pull down strongholds that exists in the land; establish the righteous covenant to The LORDSHIP OF JESUS; that we may gain rest and be fed with milk and honey.

THE BATTLEGROUNDS HAVE SHIFTED IV: THE HOMELANDS, THE HIGHWAYS AND THE PALACES

Most times when we consider places of warfare the mind wanders far away; to popular highways in the city, entrance gates of cities; governmental buildings; but very little do people consider the very location of their home as a map in contest !

The LORD through Moses had wrought a great warfare in Egypt; contending at the palace; shaking significant hotspots in the city; but the one that broke many doors at once; was the final plague; and it was the one directed to the first-born, as seen in Exodus 11:1. The most significant part of this was the fact that the first-born served either as priests or heirs to the family priesthood that serviced the family altars that had idols seated in their homes. So it was first a strike against the idols and perverse altars within the map of the homelands; and an eventual striking out the priests to these idols of the homelands that broke Egypt; and Israel obtained from these homelands such great transfer of wealth.

Inheriting the promise land gives us similar picture; this time The LORD Commanded Joshua as seen in Judges 2; that they must throw down the perverse altars of those that had been in the land; and just as we had seen in Egypt; both those in the palaces and the highways; and those in the homelands were to be contended against. This is what Gideon did that stirred the breakthrough; he advanced to gain. The battlefield has shifted; have you discerned the spiritual state of your homeland? and have you established the covenant of The LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST?

For like Gideon; we must pull down the strongholds in the homelands if we must march through the walls of Jericho to capture the palaces and the highways.

Pandemic-related prophecies and reports

‘Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away…’ [1Cor 13:8-10, NKJV BibleGateway.com]

News of three more prophecies coming to pass – the UK and the EU!

Time to wrap up news over the last few days of more prophecies moving into fulfillment, as well as today’s 1 o’clock news of the prophesied virtual church crashing the internet! Numbers shown below are for logging purposes within Prophecies Fulfilled catalogue, now nearly 190 examples!

First, once again mainstream media mirrors the words of a prophecy, making over two dozen examples (thank you Margaret H), and now one brought FOUR years ago:

14.3 – Patsy Southway (10 May 2016): Month of May – The ‘Domino Effect’

13.22 – David Noakes (17 Nov 2015):The Fall of the EU (warning “Come Out”)

165.2 – Christopher Wickland (Nov 2019):The (3 year) Humbling of Gt Britain

The Blessing videos fulfill ‘new sound of worship’ prophecies – PM Boris “filled with admiration”! (F/P #166)

Boris Johnson’s “big thank you” award letter to Tim Hughes, producer of online worship song The UK Blessing – which went viral in its first fortnight! – puts a critical article on a ‘prophecy’ website to shame.

In his personal Points of Light award, issued in recognition of outstanding voluntary service making a change in their community, the Prime Minister writes,

“At a time when our churches are closed, I am filled with admiration to hear how you have used the power of music to bring together Christians of all denominations from across our United Kingdom.

“Your sensational singing masterpiece ‘The UK Blessing’ is truly uplifting and has touched millions around the world with its message of hope and its beauty.

“As we continue to protect our NHS and save lives, I know you are also leading efforts through your own church to support those in need in Birmingham and to befriend those who are feeling lonely or isolated at this time.”

This is in the opposite vein to a hyper-critical author who presumes God does not approve of singing a blessing over our sinful, rebellious nation and that’s why He’s allowed churches to be shut! (In some of his rationale the author acts more as advocate for the Accuser, than for our Saviour!)  YET, we’ve had an unequivocal demonstration the Lord definitely DOES approve, as seen by His Spirit moving during this song to bless those who hear it!

Last night, Nina was hit by a double ‘strike’ of the Holy Spirit whilst hearing this song twice!  We’d been invited to watch The Surge, an online broadcast of leaders of the charismatic movement arising from the Toronto Outpouring – namely Catch The Fire and Partners In Harvest – in which they announced their merger under the leadership of Duncan and Kate Smith (originally from England).

After John and Carol Arnott’s ‘welcome’ this historic event began with its own rendition of The Blessing, opened by a pianist at CTF Bournemouth followed by singers across the global family of CTF-PIH churches. Upon my turning towards Nina whilst they sang, I saw her sizzling in her chair as she felt Holy Spirit surging up and down her.

After the 2-hour session we watched The UK Blessing and at the end Nina stood up to move as best she could with a leg in brace to go upstairs. However, YouTube autoplay went on to the song’s version done in South Africa and, with her feet firmly placed at the foot of the stairs, she found herself gently falling face-first into the carpeted stairwell as a black African sang “…And make His face to shine upon you”!!  WOWEEE!!!!

Then I was struck that this song of the Old Testament’s Aaronic blessing could fulfill a number of prophecies of recent years. The latest of these was issued just 3 weeks ago by Christie Johnson of Australia’s Gold Coast, as republished on this blog in Watch the Horizon, Here Come the Waves of Awakening, one element of which reads:

‘3. The Sound and the Wind – A New Sound of Worship

“I first heard an unusual sound that I wasn’t familiar with. I believe this is speaking of a new sound of worship that is going to precede the mighty outpouring. This worship is beginning to break forth, even now, all across the earth…” (emphases mine)

Moreover, the song’s verse that felled my wife speaks directly into the application of that prophetic vision and word:

Divine strategy for this new sound:  ‘To every son and daughter: this is a moment of setting yourself in a position to gaze upon the face of the Beloved….’!!

Need I say any more?

PS; the ‘triple-blast’ effect upon Nina has since brought a medically attested healing.

GPS #47.5 – ‘God-incidental’ confirmation from the Lord

Following a reader’s comment upon the Battleground Has Shifted by Abel Praise, I’ve been chatting with Abel on-and-off whilst drafting GPS #47.4.

We find we have a very similar appreciation of how the Lord is working in and aligning our personal lives. In my drafting I’d been looking for Revd Thomas Harry’s previous paper I’d blogged about and found it was FOUR years ago (ie 2016).

THEN I heard a ‘ping’ from another reply from Abel and was stunned upon reading his saying,

“I trust The LORD working out very significant things. Since 2016 I have kept significant chronicles of labors concerning Britain. The LORD had visited me with in dreams, visions, to contend for; and I noticed the intensity of prayer leads increased since last year and Britain has been very frequent on my prophetic radar. I have watched The LORD directing the march and we’re marching along. Beautiful things lay ahead…”

I immediately replied, “LOL LOL LOL >> I’ve just copied title and link from old post into the one I’m working on Confirmations of 2016’s Prophetic Words for a New Season 

And so I tell Abel ever so briefly what I’m drafting and he says,

“It is truly amazing. I have seen The LORD had granted you such significant wisdom for prophetic profiling and sequencing. It’s what it takes to decode the road map and I am amazed at the work you are accomplishing with this wisdom in Richards Watch. For those who see and understand the implementation of heavenly blueprints, it will be a great treasure…. Every bit of the puzzle is sacred.”

Now, in starting that previous post(102nd on GPS) I was nudged to check when I began blogging on this topic – it was 12.12.2016!  NO OTHER YEAR would do!!!

Prophecy of great humbling, then spiritual revival in Great Britain (GPS #47.3 cont’d – F/P #165.1)

A great thank you to Carolyn Stewart for transcribing this vital message (previous post refers). Note it was received last November at a time of unprecedented political upheaval in Parliament and speaks directly into this year’s unprecedented economic situation arising from global covid-19 pandemic. And yesterday came news of Britain’s humiliation internationally, as well as scientifically. Hence inclusion of this prophecy in the catalogue of fulfilled prophecies or those coming to pass (Footnotes refer).

“I just want to share this prophetic word. I was looking through my phone and I found this. (The current date is..we are in April 2020). And as I was looking through my phone of prophecies I found this one called ‘The Humbling of Great Britain’, which I’d never put out before. I completely forgot about it. So I think in the light of what’s going on at the moment, it is very relevant. It is a warning, but it is also an encouragement of what God is doing in our land. I thought I should release this now.

“As I said, this was given in November 2019. This was just before I died as well, so it is quite a significant prophecy. And as I said, I’d forgotten all about it. I just found it on my phone, but I feel it’s important to release it, so I’ll leave it with you. Please listen, please enjoy, please be blessed, and please spread it around as well.

THE HUMBLING OF GREAT BRITAIN (November 2019)

“I will have the people in this land in derision”, says the Lord. “I will pour out my Spirit on this land, and those people that have called to come together to conspire, to tear down My ways and My precepts and My ordinances from this land – this green and pleasant land. Mark My words: I will have them in derision. I am in the heavens and I laugh at their futility, at the things that they’re attempting to do, to close Me off and shut Me off from My own creation and so close down and shut down My people. For that is their ultimate aim. They want Me and every trace of Me eradicated from the land and from education and from every part of this society.

But mark My words; I have plans to prosper this country, and I will bring to shame the wise. I will shame those who have so loftily held their head up – their stiff-necked heads that have said, ‘We will bring our ways! We will bring in our precepts and ordinances in this land, and we will eradicate God, and we will take Him off his throne. And we shall destroy His church.  But not so!

“Sadly, My own Church has failed to see how impoverished and how weakened she has become. She is literally now a remnant in this country. Yet I will do great things with a remnant. Yet when it was I can take three hundred foot-soldiers with Gideon and I can do a great deliverance, and I will do the same also in this land. I will take this small remnant of a Church that is left – those Christians that genuinely acknowledge Me as their Lord and Saviour – and will not bow the knee to Baal and to all his false practices and customs in respect to the laws that are now passing in this land.

Mark My words, punishment will come for the sins that have covered this land. But the punishment, as I always punished Israel in times past, was so that it may bring them to repentance and may bring healing to their land; that when the people are humbled they would pray to me and I would turn in My mercy, I would forgive them their sins and I would then heal their land. I am going to bring punishment to this nation – a time of humbling – but this punishment is not to destroy this nation. This punishment is to humble her and to chastise her, that she may repent of her wicked ways and turn back to Me.

“There will not be many nations in the days ahead that will be permitted to have what this nation will be permitted. You will have a grace and a favour upon you which many other nations will not be given because I have plans and purposes for this country. And even though My own people have been faithless harlots towards Me, know this; that your faithlessness will only go to prove My faithfulness. I will be faithful to My Covenant and to My Word, and I will bring about My ways and My means for this country, and I will pour out My Spirit. And I will bring Revival, but it will not be like any revival that has been before. It will be uncontainable; it will be uncontrollable; and the world will HATE it because it will be so strong and it will be so powerful that they cannot ignore it.

“In times past they’ve been able to turn a blind eye to the things of My Spirit, but in these days everyone will know about it, everybody will know about it. And the same sun that melts the ice also hardens the clay, and men will just drop into two distinct camps: those that love Me and those that absolutely hate Me. This is why in many respects these days are dangerous days, because it will polarize people, in ways stronger than they are now; but you will know the righteous and you will know the evil.

But mark My words, I will do something wonderful with this country; I will restore law and order to this country. This country has become lawless and it has no more order to it. And your Houses of Parliament are an example of the state of your nation, of the division of your nation, of the complexities of your nation. The wickedness and the hardness of heart and the blindness and arrogance of your nation are all set to display, for all the world to see in your own Houses of Parliament. But I am going to do a new thing. And many men will lay down their crowns and place down their swords before Me and repent and give their lives to me. And many powerful men and women who vehemently hate My name, will come to know Me and love My name.

“And some Christians might go, ‘Why, why Lord did you save them? They’re the ones who brought such depravity to our nation. Why did you allow it?’  Because that’s My grace, that’s My mercy, and the very ones that brought in those laws, I will turn into trophies of grace to make the enemy despised in his own camp, for I will make those who passed those wicked laws be the ones that undo them, for they will reveal the secrets and the dark intent and heart of sinful wicked flesh. And the world or this country at least, will look on in horror at the things that they’ve released and allowed in this country, and they will be rescinded and retracted.

“My people, you need to do this: you need to be spending these hours – because it is only hours – you need to be spending these hours in prayer; you need to be spending these hours on your knees; you need to be spending this time in the Word, learning from Me, learning from My Spirit and I will teach you many wonderful things. But this is the time, because there are many bridesmaids out there that do not have enough oil in their lamp and you need to get it in your lamp. No-one can part-exchange their life of intimacy with Me to those that have no intimacy with Me. This is your chance; now is the time to do it, for in the humbling that’s coming – this wind of change that’s going to blow through this land – it’s going to be a difficult time for this nation. It will not be a long time, but the depth of the punishment that will come will be severe, even though it will only be for a short time. It was like when I said to King David, “You can have three years of this, three months of that, or three days of the other”.

“This will be a short punishment but it will be a deep punishment; a deep chastisement to this nation. And I will humble this nation and I will turn her around. And many who are your enemies in these days will become your friends and neighbours in the days to come.

“So be prepared, be encouraged but be warned; this is not going to be an easy day that is coming, it is going to be a difficult day, a difficult time for this nation. Many Christians will cry out, ‘Why did I allow such things to come to this nation?’ But in part, everyone in this nation is responsible for the punishments that are coming.

“There is much worldliness in My Body, much worldliness in My Church, much worldliness in the mindset of Christians, much worldliness in the teachings of the Church! And the teachings of the Church have lost their anchor. They have apostasised; they have become an apostate church, in that they’ve drifted away from the truth of scripture and have chosen to allow the doctrines of men to infiltrate the teachings of the Church. The sacred scriptures should never be changed, never diluted, never touched, never altered, for they sacred and they are from the throne room of heaven itself. How dare man place his DNA and his ideas over that which is heavenly and beyond?

“So take heart to these words and this warning. Be blessed, be encouraged and get ready, for the time is now when the humbling must begin. And it will be short but long. It will be a short period of time but it will feel like the longest period of time, for it will be very intense. And for a period of three years a time of great humbling will come upon this nation, and it will be a heavy three years, a very difficult three years.

“But then things will change, things will turn, and you will go from Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, Summer into Harvest time.”

    ‘The biggest political con in modern history has descended into farce. Professor McLockdown, has choked on his own junk science, resigning from Sage after the Telegraph exposed that he flouted the very mass house arrest he advocated for everyone else. But his defence – that he broke the rules because he had already caught the virus and recovered from it – is even more revelatory; turns out Britain’s most influential epidemiologist believes that not only can you gain immunity from Covid-19, but that this should release you from lockdown.

    ‘If No 10’s response to coronavirus was really based on “following the science”, of course, these new details about Prof Ferguson’s view might be a game-changer, prompting, at the very least, Downing Street discussions of how to rapidly loosen the rules for those who have had the virus. Like with all good farces, though, the most absurd is yet to come. Incredibly, Downing Street shows little sign of learning from the Ferguson Chapter. And, astonishingly, once again, “the science” is being compromised by political hysteria – a scandal that continues to be barely scrutinised.

    ‘But before we get to the meat, let us briefly chew over the cautionary tale that can be cleaved from the career of Prof Ferguson. He has a track record of making wildly inaccurate projections, for example that BSE would kill 150,000 people (the real figure was fewer than 200)…’

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

Click image for link to Series 8, episode 3 (available until 22nd May)

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:

CLICK IMAGE TO LISTEN (not shown in new screen)

[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)

Does security intel validate a word on pandemic? (F/P #162.10)

Click image to read SkyNews report

Monday morning was encouraging upon seeing the headlines and connected content, in view of what I believe is the Lord’s answer of six weeks ago to my asking whether or not the ‘Chinese flu’ was His doing.

I’m aware of some articles (in Guardian and Foreign Policy) arguing those claims are not supported by evidence but are based upon open-source information and opinion, not secret intelligence. 

Nevertheless, this post’s purpose is to consider this news in the light of my musings upon the spiritual aspect of this global pandemic, and of what I understand from the Lord.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is reported in an interview with ABC’s This Week as saying, “There is a significant amount of evidence that this (pandemic) came from that laboratory in Wuhan. The best experts so far seem to think it was man-made. I have no reason to disbelieve that at this point.” 

I was intrigued that a person of such rank as the United States’ Secretary of State more or less confirmed what I heard from the Lord. Yes, indisputable evidence would validate that word – but to repeat Secretary Pompeo: personally, I have no reason to disbelieve what I heard.

What I received was shared in a footnote to the first of this series of posts (F/P #162.1) monitoring the fulfilling of prophecies on the pandemic, Another Prophecy of 2019 Revisited re Coronavirus – The Lord Reveals its Origin and slightly expanded upon in the introduction to F/P #162.5 on Charles Shamp’s vision of demonic laboratories

That blog republished a prophecy in Prophetic Releasers – Community revisited by its administrator-founder Geoffrey Pick. To better appreciate my footnote, this copy bears extra material in blue parentheses:

‘An interesting discussion developed within this group of prophetical brethren on the origins of the global pandemic. I raised a question about the virus’ origin (Is there unequivocal proof that it is a man-made virus? I understand a virus is a combination of organic and inorganic materials and know of none that are beneficial, as with bacteria. So how do viruses fit into God’s creation design and plan? Or could they come from satan’s post-Genesis activities?)

‘This generated an interesting flow of information in parallel with dealing with true and false prophets, questions over whether or not the situation is directly from the Lord and how it relates to scripture and End-times – even believers’ confusion over it all. Even so, I’m blessed in knowing two decisive scriptures on this issue for sharing as soon as am able to do so in this inordinately hectic time!!

‘And so I mulled all those matters over in my mind last Monday night. (This included various scriptures, prophetic ‘opinions’ as well as rumours on the issue, especially that as El Shaddai, the Lord is ‘The God of utter ruin and devastation’ according to rabbinic doctrine. I laid out all I’d heard, those particular scriptures – see next post for details – plus the whole canon and my own thoughts, just like papers spread out on a desk before the Lord for His advice!)

‘Upon waking Tuesday morning, 24th March, I thus asked the Lord, “Is the pandemic from You?” ~ and then got an immediate answer: “No, it is man-made!!”

‘Later that day I came across Revd Yinka Oyekan’s Facebook posting of the previous day about a dream of his that brought me confirmation, especially on the End-times (Dogmatic Dog-collar’s False Teaching re Covid-19 refers). He replied to me, “The signs of the end times being upon us are not yet fulfilled, this formed part of my weighing the dream.”

A couple of readers took me to task over straying away from scripture on judgement !  That is, the pandemic is a sign of holy judgement upon the deep wickedness within all societies – I don’t disagree with that point!

Therefore next, I will disclose those relevant scriptures supporting what I heard and the fuller meaning of this pandemic being man-made, especially on ‘Mark of the Beast’.
