Three days’ prophetic jigsaw pieces: #1 – 21st Sept and 1Thessalonians 5

‘But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.’  (1 Thess 5:1-4 NKJV – emphases added)

Is what Apostle Paul foretold about the timing of the Day of the Lord happening today? Or this coming year?  Especially noteworthy is the fact that today is Rosh Hashanah – the start of the Jewish New Year 5778!!

You may recall having read about this a month ago in Today’s and one month away’s awesome events in the heavens on Mark Biltz’s message (1:04 – 1:05 mark refers)?

The United Nations has declared 21st September to be observed annually and globally as the International Day of Peace (‘Peace Day’)’. Today’s and the next 365 days theme is entitled, ‘Together for Peace, Respect, Safety and Dignity For All’.

Look again, that scripture’s third verse promises ‘when they say, “Peace and Safety!” then…’, the clear inference everyone’s saying those words.

Eschatologists reason that, in the context of the corpus of End-time scripture, this verse means Israel will be living in peace and safety within its own land without any threats or attacks from other nations. Hence the international interest in getting an Israel-Palestine peace treaty signed with a two-state solution to the vexed issue.

But what if the verse really refers to a worldwide concensus to talk about peace and safety, not the resolution of a long-standing Middle-East geopolitical problem??

Could this year, therefore, be the beginning of The Day of The Lord?

Another Biblical Connection?

Furthermore, the details in Matthew’s account of the magi’s journey following the Star of Bethlehem had dropped into mind over the past weeks’ whilst mulling over September’s three special days. (Hence my publishing God’s Bookends.)  King Herod’s asking them about the timing of that star resulted in his murdering children under two years of age (Matt 2:7& 2:16).  So could there be something meaningful about ‘two years’? I ponder over its possible implications in the fulfillment of prophecy.

Moreover, could it support a ‘niggling’ growing suspicion over the direct relevance of what I’d posted two years ago about the Day of the Lord??

Therefore, I was struck whilst editing that post to hear an announcement coming out of my computer speakers about those two years!!  And it was the voice of a man with the same initials as me – RB!  He was nine minutes into a video summary of discussions on the internet since 2015 about the two years up to now, and of which I’m totally unaware as my time’s far too valuable to spend trawling through cyber-stuff.

Double therefore – I took this ‘God-incidence’ as confirmation about the connection I’d been mulling over. Here it is:

Whilst in Jerusalem during the Feat of Tabernacles in 2015 violinist and messianic Jew Dr Maurice Sklar had a visionary experience which concluded with him being instructed to “Tell them all, The Day of the Lord is upon you now!”

‘Upon’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘here’ or ‘on top of’ but it can also mean something’s ‘imminent’ and so ‘The Day of the Lord’ could be just ‘over the horizon’ and arrive very soon!

Moreover, although two years apart Dr Sklar’s revelatory vision and today’s UN ‘Peace Day’ are both on a Feast day designated by the Lord: ie. Tabernacles and Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) – Leviticus 23:23-25 and 23:33-36.  The latter is a two-day holiday starting at sundown yesterday and to allow for sighting of the new moon in Jerusalem. It is immediately followed by high holy days ‘The Days of Awe’ leading into Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, with intense spiritual preparation and repentance, sometimes referred to as ‘Israel’s Dark Days’. Old Testament prophets understood the Days of Awe to be a period of judgement, which has a parallel with The Day of The Lord (The Last Shofar, Joseph Lenard & Donalf Zoller).

What’s more, the astronomical alignment of planets and constellations that mirror the ‘radiant woman’ of Rev 12:1-2 takes place on the first ‘Day of Awe’ 2017; that is, 23rd September!

A Brief Biblical Background

For newer readers, let’s briefly consider the background to Paul’s letter and the Day of the Lord:

In the earliest canonical document of the Church (depending upon resolution of date of his letter to the churches in Galatia), Apostle Paul reminded believers in Thessalonica what he’d taught them about Jesus Christ’s promise to return. They were concerned about the status of those who’d died (were ‘asleep’) before that prophesied event.

He states, “For this we say to you by the word of the Lord” which, in my humble opinion, clearly implies Paul had heard this direct from Jesus personally, or received during his very occasional meetings with the twelve apostles. (The later gospels, Peter and John’s letters refer to Jesus’ second coming but don’t spell out the details, as Paul does, for all believers upon being ‘caught up’ or ‘raptured’ to Him at His return.)

Paul refers in passing to a future event first prophesied by prophet Obadiah – the Day of the Lord (see Obad 15) – and to which Jesus alludes in his ‘mission statement’ and its direct connection with Isaiah 61:2 (Luke 4:18-19 refers).

NK-KimJungUn

While a preemptive North Korean nuclear attack on the U.S. and/or America’s Pacific allies sounds like a plot ripped from my 2008 novel, Dead Heat, it may no longer be a fictional scenario.

U.S. intelligence agencies are now convinced that “North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power,”reports the Washington Post, based on a confidential analysis by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

“The United States calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong In,” notes the Post.

This week, Pyongyang threatened to attack the island of Guam with ballistic missiles that could be armed with nuclear weapons. With 160,000 residents and two U.S. military bases, the Pacific island territory now appears to be in Pyongyang’s crosshairs.

Veronica West: Brace for mighty tsunami wave of God’s glory and grace

TELL MY PEOPLE TO BRACE FOR THERE IS COMING A MIGHTY TSUNAMI WAVE OF MY GLORY AND GRACE THAT WILL SHAKE, SHIFT AND SIFT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”!

Last night I had a powerful dream where I was caught up in the Spirit realm. In the dream I seemed to be standing between the earthly realm and the heavenly realm, when out of the heavens came a loud voice saying, “TELL MY PEOPLE TO BRACE FOR THERE IS COMING A MIGHTY TSUNAMI WAVE OF MY GLORY AND GRACE THAT WILL SHAKE, SHIFT AND SIFT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”, as I heard these words suddenly a strong rushing Wind began to blow round about me and then I saw a mighty Tsunami Wave of liquid gold coming out of the heavens and breaking forth upon the earth. As I stayed watching in the dream suddenly I saw a multitude of Angels dressed in garments of pure white light swiftly descending upon the earth, as I drew a little closer I saw that the Angels carried swords in one hand and sickles in the other and then I heard these words, “Watch! For Now a mighty Tsunami Wave of My Glory and Grace now breaks forth upon the Nations of the earth. Watch! For Angels of the Harvest are now gathering and scattering, gathering and scattering, gathering and scattering”!

Suddenly the dream shifted and I found myself standing upon the earth, and again just as before a strong rushing wind began to blow round about me, then I heard a voice speak from heaven saying, “The nations rumble on like the rumbling of many waters, But I the Lord will rebuke them and they will flee far away, And be chased like chaff in the mountains before the wind, Or like whirling dust before a gale.

At that very moment I woke up suddenly and I was praying fervently in the Spirit when the Holy Spirit spoke to me saying, “Now is the Time, Watch! for the Whirlwind of My Spirit comes to sift and Shift the Nations of the earth”, immediately the Spirit quickened to me Isaiah 17, which says, “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.
2 “The cities of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks to lie down in, And there will be no one to frighten them.
3 “The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,And sovereignty from Damascus. And the remnant of Aram; They will be like the glory of the sons of Israel,” Declares the LORD of hosts.
4 Now in that day the glory of Jacob will fade, And the fatness of his flesh will become lean.
5 It will be even like the reaper gathering the standing grain, As his arm harvests the ears, Or it will be like one gleaning ears of grain. In the valley of Rephaim.
6 Yet gleanings will be left in it like the shaking of an olive tree, Two or three olives on the topmost bough, Four or five on the branches of a fruitful tree, Declares the LORD, the God of Israel.
7 In that day man will have regard for his Maker. And his eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel.
8 He will not have regard for the altars, the work of his hands, Nor will he look to that which his fingers have made, Even the Asherim and incense stands.
9 In that day their strong cities will be like forsaken places in the forest, Or like branches which they abandoned before the sons of Israel; And the land will be a desolation.
10 For you have forgotten the God of your salvation. And have not remembered the rock of your refuge. Therefore you plant delightful plants. And set them with vine slips of a strange god.
11 In the day that you plant it you carefully fence it in, And in the morning you bring your seed to blossom; But the harvest will be a heap. In a day of sickliness and incurable pain.
12 Alas, the uproar of many peoples Who roar like the roaring of the seas, And the rumbling of nations Who rush on like the rumbling of mighty waters!
13 The nations rumble on like the rumbling of many waters, But He will rebuke them and they will flee far away, And be chased like chaff in the mountains before the wind, Or like whirling dust before a gale.
14 At evening time, behold, there is terror! Before morning they are no more. Such will be the portion of those who plunder us. And the lot of those who pillage us.

Note; As I was praying concerning the dream shift where I found myself suddenly standing upon the earth the Holy Spirit showed me a mighty Tsunami Wave that is coming too in the natural realm, it will come as ‘suddenly and as swiftly and as unexpectedly as the Tsunami of His Glory and Grace. Furthermore I believe that it is no coincidence that Isaiah 17 should be quickened to me in the Year 2017, let us continue to Pray Always for Israel.

Veronika West, Ignite Ireland Ministry, 4th July 2017

Veronika West: Psalm 2 – two visions of international shaking

Yesterday Veronika West published the following on Ignite Ireland Ministry Facebook of a vision over Russia, Syria and Korea (all emphases mine):

“I SAW THE HEART OF THE KING IN THE HAND OF THE LORD; WATCH! FOR THIS IS THE HOUR OF DIVINE DERISION AND SCORN FOR THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH“, says God…!

Early hours of the morning I was suddenly caught up in the Spirit where I heard the sound of a beating heart, as I pressed into the sound suddenly I saw the hand of God come out of the heavens and extend towards the earth, as I drew closer, so the sound of the beating heart grew louder and stronger. I stayed watching and listening intently, then I heard these words in the realms of the Spirit, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turns it wherever he will”, then suddenly I was taken in the spirit to the Nation of Russia, now as I stepped upon the soil of this Nation, suddenly I was shown Syria in the Middle East, then the Nation of North and South Korea, then out of the heavens came the sound of a great roar of laughter, then I heard these words,

“Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against I the LORD and against My Anointed, they have said to themselves, “Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us, But I the Lord who sits in the heavens shall laugh, I the LORD shall hold them in derision”. (Psalm 2:1-4)

Then suddenly I saw a great and violent shaking begin to take place in these Nations as the sound of the roar of laughter went forth across the whole earth, then suddenly again I heard a voice that came out of the heavens saying,

“I AM Supreme over the heavens and over the whole Earth, I rule over the affairs of men, For I alone hold the heart of the King in My hand, I Alone harden and soften hearts, I Alone turn it wherever I will according to My own good will and pleasure”.

Then suddenly I came out of the encounter and I was fully awake. Immediately I began to pray in the Spirit concerning what I had seen and what I had heard, then the Holy Spirit showed me again a great, severe and violent shaking that is about to take place in many Nations in the Earth. Then I heard these words, “WATCH! FOR THIS IS THE HOUR OF DIVINE DERISION AND SCORN FOR THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”, says God.

Veronika also re-published one co-authored with Priscilla Ann on 17 December 2016 for the United States of five TIDAL WAVES OF TRUTH – RIGHTEOUSNESS – UNITY – MERCY – PEACE – THAT WILL TRUMP THE PLANS OF THE ENEMY IN THIS NATION.

A historic day, not only for Britain but also globally re. Genesis 12 & Psalm 2

Now the Lord had said to Abram, “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 

“I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3, NKJV)

As I write, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, has received PM Theresa May’s letter of ‘Declaration of Independence’ giving notice of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. She announced to the House of Commons that the Article 50 letter has been delivered. Hooray!

Britain’s ambassador to the EU Tim Barrow delivers formal notice of the UK’s intention to leave the bloc to European Council president Donald Tusk in Brussels CREDIT: AF

A year ago none would have expected such a severe shaking in government and change in leadership in the United Kingdom (as well as in the United States of America) – as said before, obviously the Hand of God must have been in this (eg here). AND, in accordance with what He revealed to one who listened to Him, He told his prophets in advance!

‘Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

‘A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?’ (Amos 3:7-8 NKJV)

You may be interested to read Archbishop Cranmer’s ‘take’ on this and note reference by ‘TropicalAnglican’ in the ensuring thread to a ‘brexit’ vision on New Year’s Eve 2015.

Let us never, ever forget the essential prime point – whatever anyone may say – in leaving the EU is to remove ourselves from its inequitable system of judiciary injustice. That fact was well emphasised by David Chapman in The EU’s Background and An Alternative.  Also, it’s featured strongly in Edmund Phillimore’s conclusions drawn a week before the June referendum, which closes by reminding readers:

‘Brexit will not restore us to godly government, for many of our politicians are secular humanists. But it will be a step in the right direction, taking us out of a system of government that does not acknowledge God and his sovereignty over his creation.  It will restore us to the principles of our ancient constitution and democratic monarchy that honours God in the Coronation oath which still stands.  We should trust God , and remember that he can restore life to dry and scattered bones.’ (Our Christian Heritage in Church and State – new addition to blog.)

In my humble opinion, leaving the EU will enable Britain to move back into its God-given destiny and, as Mrs May has a far better appreciation of the purpose and role of Israel in the world than anti-Semitic EU, we can expect the Lord to follow-up His promise to bless us – AND as arranged during PM Netanyahu’s visit to London last month, a British-Israeli task force is proceeding to prepare for new trade deals now Article 50 has been triggered. (After USA, the UK is Israel’s second largest trading partner.)

The USA should also be the recipient of scripture’s promised blessings too now there’s no longer any light showing between their alliance with Israel and their individual geopolitical interests.

TOWARDS A NEW ARAB SPRING

As in Prophetic Scripture Update #3, today’s meeting of Sunni Arab heads of states in Jordan may result in their acceptance of the Jewish state of Israel as a partner in working towards an acceptable solution to the Israel-Palestine issue. They may want to wave a ‘hammer’ at ‘mule-headed’ Mahmoud Abbas – and better still, clout him with one!

So, according to Genesis 12 all those Sunni nations will be blessed in dealing properly with Israel – and all parties thus move toward recognising Messiah Jesus. For decades the scenario given in Psalm 2 has applied in that intractable Middle-Eastern enmity, as well as all reprobate nations:

‘Why do the Gentiles throng tumultuously and the people plot a worthless thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His anointed, saying “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us”.

‘He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath and distress them with His deep displeasure… (NKJV)

The psalm continues to describe events, especially the declaration of Jesus as Mashiach or Messiah to the Jewish elders (Matt 26:63-66) and commissioning his disciples unto the nations. Its conclusion may be read as a promise to those who come to respect His people and their Anointed One:

‘Now, therefore, be wise O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with (reverential) fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son (embrace discipline, receive instruction), lest the LORD be angry and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little.

‘Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.’

That scripture may prophesy blessing upon that meeting and its outcome, all of which may fit in with an open vision I had when visiting Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship for the first time in 2003.

Being unfamiliar with the speakers I’d heard a little about them from Nina and knew so little about Heidi Baker of Iris Ministries (Iris Global). However, as she started addressing the conference I suddenly had an open vision as though I was in orbit over central Africa and saw tall flames leaping high into the atmosphere over the whole Mozambique area to the right. I then saw them sweeping up the eastern side of Africa and into Sudan and Egypt. Its Mediterranean coast sat on the curvature of the globe and I saw this holy fire go along it and across the Sinai peninsular into the Arabian peninsula!  .

[Upon speaking to Rolland Baker about this, he replied it’s similar to what their director Supresa Sithole had seen for the ministry, which has brought whole Muslim provinces to Jesus.]

Therefore, we trust and pray the Lord is doing many new things globally today…

Very perceptive points from Jo that are well-worth pondering, especially on the sounds heard over Jerusalem!

The Kingdom

richter-scale“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” The King asked by way of reply to my question about the shaking New Zealand has been experiencing.

I keep an eye on signs.  I discern things.  That’s my gift.  Not that I always get it right.  I check what I see with the Bible. And I ask God questions.

“Are the earthquakes we’ve been experiencing since 2011 about sin?” I asked doubtfully.

The day before the Kaikoura earthquake Brian Tamaki, the self-appointed bishop of Destiny Church said, “the earth convulses under the weight of certain human sin … Massive earthquakes have already hit in Christchurch and you could have just about predicted that one.”  The next day he was a  prophet in big trouble with the gay community who didn’t like what he said.

Well, he detected something, but he was off target.  We’ve always had sin.  It’s…

Dave Chapman on Nationhood

An instance of serendipity (or ‘God-incidence’) in this guest post by Dave Chapman being written whilst I wrote about the 2012 prophetic word on restoring nations’ identities.:

NATIONHOOD

It seems to me that too many Christians are afraid of standing up for our – or theirs, as the case maybe – Country. “We don’t like to get involved with politics”, we may hear, or “we are citizens of heaven, so therefore do not engage on that level”, for instance.

However, whilst ‘being political’ has to do with government and its desired nature, owning Nationhood I believe, is something quite different.  Getting involved with which ‘party’ runs, rules, or governs our own Nation does involve being ‘political’, or having a ‘preferred party’ bias.  But being involved with defending our own Government from other Governments, so that we make our independent and individual choices, is not ‘political’ in the true meaning of the word.  That is purely standing up for our own Nation – which is also quite different from ‘Nationalism’.

Yet, there is a fine line between standing up for our ‘Nation’, and ‘Nationalism’.  Here for instance, are the online dictionary definitions to help :-

Nationhood, is described as:-

“the fact or status of being a nation;  national identity, culture or economic life”. (Oxford dictionary, online)

“the state of being an independent nation”.  (Websters Dictionary, online)

“Nationhood is the state of being a nation, or a large group of people united by common language, culture or economic life”. (Your Dictionary, online)

“the state or quality of having status as a separate and independent nation“: (Dictionary.com)

Whereas ‘Nationalism’ is described as:-

“loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially :  a sense of national consciousness (see consciousness 1c) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups” (Merriam-Websters Dict, online)

ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests”. (Britannica Encyclopedia, online).

So we can see from these definitions that being a Nation, or having Nationhood, is a fact of life.  It is a state of being as a people, and operating as an independent ‘mass’ of people from other nations, whereas Nationalism is an ideology proceeding from a form of childish pride that “our nation is better than yours“!, and so displaying a superior attitude – with a desire to impose that culture and values on other Nations or peoples.

We can see that this latter approach is the root of an ‘Empire spirit’, which has manifested itself throughout the centuries over and over again.  Examples of this are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Roman, and of late the extremes of pre-War Germany, also Russia, and by the way, Britain, with its one time global Empire upon which there was no setting sun!, and finally since then, America, with its incursions into other Countries with a view to establishing democratic ideology.

Co-authors of Israel: Blessing or Curse (2001), Bill runs Koenig’s World Watch Daily and John blogs at John McTernan’s Insights.

Their subsequent bestsellers (click images for link to site) are described as follows:

Eye to Eye

What do these major record-setting events have in common? 

  • The ten costliest insurance events in U.S. history
  • The twelve costliest hurricanes in U.S. history
  • Three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history
  • The two largest terrorism events in U.S. history

eye-to-eye-bookAll of these major catastrophes and many others began or occurred on the very same day or within 24-hours of U.S. presidents Bush, Clinton and Bush applying pressure on Israel to trade her land for promises of “peace and security,” sponsored major “land for peace” meetings, made major public statements pertaining to Israel’s covenant land and /or called for a Palestinian State. The greater the pressure placed on Israel to comply the greater the corresponding catastrophe and/or event.

Are each one of these major record-setting events just a coincidence or awe-inspiring signs that God is actively involved in the affairs of Israel?

In this book, William Koenig provides undeniable facts and conclusive evidence showing that indeed the leaders of the United States and the world are on a collision course with God over Israel’s covenant land.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” (Zechariah 12:9)

As America Has Done to Israel

This book shows what was happening spiritually behind incredible events in American and world history such as:

  • The largest Nazis meeting outside of Germany took place in America the location was soon struck by one of the greatest disasters in US history.
  • President Franklin Roosevelt died at the very time he was blocking the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.
  • God raised up the United States as a world power at the very time America took in millions of Russian Jews.
  • The founder of the modern Zionist movement was not Theodor Herzl, but William Blackstone, an American evangelist.
  • As America became a great power, God directly used the nation to help fulfill His prophetic word with the rebirth of Israel. Without America’s power, modern Israel would not have been reborn.

as-america-has-done-to-israel8John reveals the direct correlation between America interfering with God’s prophetic plan for Israel and incredible disasters hitting America. Starting in 1991 and continuing until today, as America touches the land of Israel and Jerusalem incredible disasters hit the US including:

The Perfect Storm, Hurricane Andrew, the Northridge Earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, the attack on 9/11,  the Stock Market crash of 2008, the Joplin Tornado outbreak.

You will be amazed to see the correlation between the greatest earthquake in modern history and events in Israel!  (For more from this see this post.)

Caroline grew up in Obama’s local Chicago neighbourhood and after making aliyah served as Coordinator of Negotiations with the PLO and then asst. foreign policy advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu in his first term of office as Israel’s PM. For more about her professional background click Glick.

This perspicacious author and senior contributing editor of the JP opens her ‘Obama and Israel, Strike and Counterstrike’ as follows:

‘UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was the first prong of outgoing US President Barack Obama’s lame duck campaign against Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday was the second.

‘On January 15, stage 3 will commence in Paris. At France’s lame duck President Francois Hollande’s international conference, the foreign ministers of some fifty states are expected to adopt as their own the anti-Israel principles Kerry set forth in his speech.

‘The next day it will be Obama’s turn. Obama can be expected to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to present the Palestinian war to annihilate Israel as a natural progression from the American civil rights movement that King led fifty years ago.

‘Finally, sometime between January 17 and 19, Obama intends for the Security Council to reconvene and follow the gang at the Paris conference by adopting Kerry’s positions as a new Security Council resolution. That follow-on resolution may also recognize “Palestine” and grant it full membership in the UN….’continue reading.

Further Reading on UNSC 2334

A new bipartisan move is underway in Congress to defend Israel against UN Resolution 2334. This is encouraging.

Also, this morning’s World Watch Daily covers Sen Rubio and two other Senators’ introduction of legislation to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. POTUS Obama has shown his true, contemptible colours over Resolution 2334 by which he descends into obscurity and the ‘peace process’ dooms itself to abject failure.

us-israel-flags

There is good news to report as 2017 begins.

With Members of Congress back in Washington to begin a new legislative session, a major bipartisan effort is now underway in both chambers to counter U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, the anti-Israel measure President Obama shamefully refused to veto just before Hanukkah and Christmas.

I commend my friend, Sen. Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican, and Sen. Ben Cardin, the Maryland Democrat, for leading this effort to defend Israel, America’s most faithful and loyal ally in the Middle East. Today, they introduced a Senate resolution with broad bipartisan support that strongly opposes the actions taken by the U.N. and the Obama administration and lays out a positive American agenda towards Israel and the peace process with the Palestinians going forward. In the House, a similar resolution has been introduced by Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY),  which I also commend.

President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence have…

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

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

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

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

2017 – A FESTIVAL OF LIGHT

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

Koenig WWD Breaking News: Obama & Kerry stab Netanyahu in back

As reported by William Koenig in last night’s Eye View from the White House :

‘Everything John Kerry did in the Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts only worsened things. He said if Israel didn’t make peace with the Palestinians they could face even greater terrorism, the possibility of major boycotts, being considered an apartheid state and risk being further isolated in the international community. All this was designed to pressure Israel while at the same time more proof of his ineptness.

‘Today’s decision was the final straw in Obama and Kerry’s “knife in the back” not a “we have your back” decision. It was also designed to make things more difficult for Trump’s plans in Israel.

‘Obama’s Ambassador to the UN Samantha Powers used previous positions on the settlements going as far back as Reagan, and every U.S. President since him to speak against the settlements. It was a very crafty message to the UN Security Council. She spoke out of “both sides of her mouth”.’

Now let’s see what happens relating to the prophetic word Veronika West brought in 2017 – ‘Supernatural Suddenlies, Shakings & Shiftings’…!

Urgent call to pray for PM Theresa May – and re. “Redcoats” word

Thank you to Father’s House for Prayer and to UK Prophetic Words for this alert just received (Tues 6th Sept), which reads:

This Word was given as a follow-up to Veronika West’s Word about Leviathan, the serpent spirit that twists and distorts the truth and restricts God’s work of divine reconstruction in the Nation in this hour. It comes to steal the birthright and kingdom destiny of nations:

Val Williams 5 Sep 16 (posted: 05 Sep 2016 01:52 PM PDT)

This is a concerted attack upon the nations, particularly targeting the United Kingdom, because if the enemy can take this nation out, then he will have the rest of the nations, says the Lord, because the destiny of this nation is important for the destiny of the nations. And I have sent in warriors from certain nations, which has been their task and their role. And they have come in order to bless this nation, and to bring it through to where you are today, says the Lord.

But now My beloved, I need you to take authority over those spiritual forces, to take authority over them and to target them, and to pray for the government.

Pray for the key people in this nation that they will not be taken in by these spirits. They have been targeting Theresa May, when she went to Paris, they have been having a go, and seeking to alter My times and seasons, so pray as you’ve never prayed before for Theresa May, says the Lord.

Pray that her eyes will be opened. Pray that I will remove the veil from her eyes and the spiritual deafness and blindness from her heart.

Pray that the eyes of her heart will be enlightened and that she will see things she’s never seen before.

Pray that she will take good counsel. Pray that I will send her My counsel, by My Holy Spirit, through My saints in government. Pray that they will speak into the situation and warn her.

Pray that the Prophetic will go forth and that she will hear the Prophetic concerning this nation, concerning BREXIT, and concerning the Power Station at Hinkley Point.

I will honour the prayers as you pray in My Spirit.

AN URGENT CALL TO PRAY FOR THERESA MAY

Veronika West 5 Sep 16 (posted: 05 Sep 2016 02:57 AM PDT)

Yesterday evening I had a strange encounter, I was sitting reading the word and praying for the week ahead when suddenly I felt as if I had a noose put around my neck, I began to feel suffocated and choked, even my breathing became difficult.

Immediately, I discerned the presence of a demonic spirit, so I began to pray aloud in tongues and the demon fled, then I heard the Holy Spirit speak,

“Daughter Rise up and Pray for Theresa May! Watch and Be Wary of Leviathan that comes to twist and distort the truth and restrict My work of divine reconstruction in the Nation in this hour”.

As I heard these words and rushed to write them down, suddenly I saw in the spirit, the Nation of China, then I saw the Middle East, then I saw Europe, and again I clearly heard the Spirit say, “Watch and Be Wary of Leviathan that comes to twist and distort the truth and restrict My work of reconstruction in the Nation in this hour”!

So I began to pray and as I cried out to the Lord, He showed me a very large 7-headed serpent coming out of the sea which proceeded to wrap itself tightly around the Nation. Immediately I was reminded of the word God gave me a few weeks ago;

“WATCH FOR THE SERPENT SPIRIT THAT COMES TO KILL DREAMS, DISTORT VISION AND STEAL THE BIRTHRIGHT AND KINGDOM DESTINY OF NATIONS”!

Last night while soaking in His Presence, I had a short but powerful vision where I was shown many Nations, I saw the Nations of Africa, America, Australia, Europe, United Kingdom, India and China, as I looked upon these Nations suddenly I saw a Ladder emerging out of the Heavens over each Nation, I watched closely as the Ladders touched the earth, suddenly I saw what looked like large Python snakes coming up from under the ground, I watched as these large serpents moved upon the ladders, wrapping and coiling themselves tightly around the base of each ladder.

Suddenly I heard the sound of rushing waters and I saw mighty Rivers breaking forth upon the Nations. I watched as the waters rose higher and higher above the ground, until I could no longer see the bottom of the ladders, then I saw the large serpents moving vigorously in the rising waters, I watched intently as the powerful force of the waters current began to wash the serpents away, drowning many of them.

Then I heard a loud voice that said,

“BEHOLD I AM RAISING A STANDARD OVER THE NATIONS IN THIS HOUR, WATCH FOR THERE IS A STIRRING OF WAR WITH THE SERPENT SPIRIT OVER THE NATIONS, LOOK AND SEE FOR THE MIGHTY RIVERS ARE BREAKING FORTH, THE WATERS ARE NOW RISING, RISING, RISING CAUSING THE SERPENT SPIRIT TO BE WASHED AWAY!”

I submit, Here is what the Father revealed to me as I came out of the Vision, Immediately, the Holy Spirit quickened to me Jacobs Dream at Bethel, “Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to Heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.”—Genesis 28:12

Holy Spirit then showed me the heavens breaking open over the Nations of the earth in this season, this is Heaven responding to the cries and deep groanings of Gods people! I saw the ladders forming like bridges between heaven and earth.

I DECLARE; IN THIS HOUR HEAVEN IS TOUCHING EARTH.

Then I heard these words,

“This is the Hour of Divine Visitation and Divine Intervention in the Nations of the earth, For I am pouring out My Spirit on All Flesh. Now Watch For A Confrontation with the enemy is Now Stirring”, says God.

Then He showed me a war that is raging with the Serpent Spirit over the Birthright and Destiny of the Nations in this hour, I saw Satan unleash powerful demonic principalities over the Nations, these are the serpent spirits sent to occupy the gateways to these Nations, these serpent spirits sit as gatekeepers to the Cities and they are contending against the Spirit of Restoration and Revival in the land, they are sent to war against Gods Kingdom manifesting in the earthly realm. These are the messengers of Death and Destruction and these serpent demons have the power to choke out supply and provision, they are powerful in restricting and constricting, they have the power to suffocate the life out of Gods people, and in this hour and season they come to stifle growth, distort Vision, kill Dreams and steal the Birthright and the Kingdom Destiny of the Nations.

As I went deeper into prayer, and sought the Lord for deeper revelation into the serpent spirits that I saw in the Vision, suddenly He showed me a very powerful Serpent Spirit that has come out of the Middle East, and I saw that this spirit has infiltrated many Nations, He showed me the Serpent Spirit of ‘Islam’, as I looked upon this powerful demon serpent I heard the Father say,

“FEAR NOT, FOR THE HEEL OF MY BRIDE SHALL TREAD UPON ITS HEAD AND IT SHALL BE CRUSHED”

I DECREE; THE VICTORY BELONGS TO THE LORD.

Then Father showed me that He is raising a standard over the Nations in this hour, He is mobilising a Mighty Army of Fearless Warriors that shall stand to FIGHT for the Birthright and Destiny of these Nations. And like Jacob these Mighty Warriors have wrestled with the Angel of the Lord, for they now walk in a new way, and their strength in not in their numbers but in the Spirit of Unity they move and advance in great Power and Authority across the land, these are the Anointed Kings and High Priests of the Kingdom of God, Humble servants that have been Called, Chosen and Commissioned by the King of Heaven to go forth to occupy and establish the purposes of God in the Nations of the earth in this hour. These Mighty and Fearless Warriors are the Sons and Daughters of YESHUA that stand Strong, Steadfast, unrelenting, unwavering and unshakeable in their Faith and Expectation, for they have learned to lean heavily upon their Beloved….! “VICTORY OVER DEATH”, IS THEIR BATTLE CRY.

NB: Veronika is referring not to Muslims, each of whom the Lord Jesus loves and died for, but to the great evil that instigates terrorism.

Last night we briefly saw headlines on G20 Summit and noted Prime Minister May ‘power dressed’ in red – a reminder of the prophetic word that closed “The Redcoats are coming, the British are coming!”. Therefore and in view of previous posts on UK-USA spiritual connection, note this photo from GOPUSA’s report (click for link to article) and see video of her meeting Putin and Obama:

Therefore, let’s use this in making our above declarations!  See also Telegraph 3rd video here.

ALSO received today (!!) is this from Nelson Walters at The Gospel in the End Times, Who is Leviathan?

8th Sept: see also Colin Urquhart Defeating the Leviathan Spirit – Peter Dufort writes, “He wrote these notes after having dealt with this spirit in the church – very helpful”. For example, ‘…Because of its deceptive nature, those under its influence can mistake its voice to be from God. Typical phrases that are used by those under its influence are: “The Lord said to me…” and “I felt in my spirit…” But when you check out what is said it does not tie in with either the scriptures or the way in which the Holy Spirit leads people. Remember that its intention is to encourage people to break covenant and to bring division into the church. It opposes covenant and wants people to excuse themselves from contracts and other commitments. [Emphasis added]

‘Typically, this spirit brings false allegations against people, especially those in leadership. Often outrageous things are said that are a complete distortion or twisting of the truth. We are warned in scripture not to bite or devour one another, or we will be consumed by one another. The honouring of one another is essential to prevent this spirit from gaining any foothold in the church….’
