“Unprecedented attack”: preview of Second Signpost!

Lots of activity has meant been unable to post ongoing news on Iran front but this needs to be noted…

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

At first I couldn’t believe it. Wow, what a news event! But I only saw the story on Zero Hedge. That site is fairly reliable but one never knows if it might be fake news. But having seen the story later on Fox and CNN it was real.

There was a coordinated drone attack on Saudi oil facilities knocking out over half of Saudi Arabia’s daily oil output!! The largest single oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia, and in the world for that matter, was taken out.

Major explosion at oil processing plant in eastern Saudi Arabia. Screen grab from this news report.

Oil Production Loss Like 1973/1979

The Saudis lost production of 5.7 million barrels per day (bpd). That’s just over half of Saudi Arabia’s total production (of 9.8 m bpd), and a (5.7 m loss / 90 m world total) 6.3% total of world production. The…

Lana Vasa: a word from the Lord for prophets in their private battles

I trust many readers will be as encouraged to read this mighty prophetic word as am I (click title to access original on Lana’s website):

A WORD FOR PROPHETS THAT HAVE BEEN IN A FEROCIOUS, PRIVATE BATTLE!!
by Lana Vawser Ministries

The Lord spoke to me that many prophets have been in a private battle especially recently. Many prophets have been “fighting for their lives” and for their “mantle” behind closed doors of late. These private battles have left many feeling beaten down and broken. The Lord spoke to me that this word is not a corporate word for every prophet in the body of Christ, this is a word for those prophets who have been in a ferocious battle lately.

The Lord showed me that there has been a spirit of python that has been coming against many prophets to suck the life out of you, to suffocate you, to break you, to silence you and to completely take you out and hinder you from moving into what the Lord has destined for you that is just up ahead.

The Lord showed me that there have been this intense battles and opposition of the enemy against many of you to take you out, but also the hand of the Lord is moulding you and shaping you, preparing you for what you are about to release. See the Lord has been depositing things within you in the most broken place that you do not even realise He has been doing and He is about to decree a divine RESET. Continue reading

Should the Church be actively engaged in politics? South Africa gives a lead

In view of the on-going political upheaval here, Roger Jervois, who’s been keeping us updated on the political Ulster-Eire front, offers a Southern African perspective based upon his personal experience, on the value of the Church getting directly involved in politics.  It is particularly a-propos with my increasing political coverage, albeit from a prophetical stance. Roger writes,

‘I was born in then-Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, in 1963. There, the evangelical church was largely silent, with basically only the Catholics resisting the racist Rhodesian government. The evangelical Church largely stayed out of the political realm, to the great cost of the average person in latter decades.

‘After emigrating to South Africa, in 1986 I (reluctantly, to be honest) joined a very controversial church, Rhema Bible Church, Randburg under a fearless pastor Ray Macauley. The political climate was very difficult still, getting steadily worse – the Apartheid government was ruthless in dealing with criticism.

‘God spoke to Ray’s heart about getting involved in politics and changing the course of the nation. God said it was going to be very costly for him and the church in terms of public opinion, a fact which continues today. God sent many great men and women of God to confirm His word, in front of the congregation, which I personally witnessed.

‘As a church, we rallied around our pastor in obedience to the Holy Spirit. Thus we began to pray for the nation diligently, from 1988 onwards. God opened doors, and even the then-Minister of Finance, Barend Du Plessis, a newly born-again Christian of Afrikaans background, came and spoke briefly to the church, to tumultuous applause. It continued, and God led Ray to reach out further, and he did.

‘The result was a gathering in 1990, after months of intercession, of the extreme left-, centre- and right-wings of the Christian Church in SA at a place of great spiritual significance, Rustenburg – the first capital of the Transvaal Republic and bastion of Afrikaanerdom. It was known as the Rustenburg or Bishop’s Conference where the church leaders wept openly for what they had brought into the nation, asking God’s forgiveness. The result was the miracle turnaround in SA, which continues unto today.

‘Last weekend saw the inauguration of a convert of 20 years, from the very same Rhema Bible Church Randburg, take the oath of office as our State President. The Church in SA continues to be prodded by difficulties into praying for and interacting directly with politicians, to our greater benefit.

‘It is highly recommended that Christians engage with their authorities.’

Roger Jervois, 1st June 2019

Covering crosses, hiding Jesus and the quest for the truth about God — Gavin Ashenden

I’ve had a rather exciting media week. As one of my friends said, “it’s nice to see Gavin in the Sun fully clothed and without a whiff of scandal.” At the weekend the Sunday Times interviewed me for a comment on an unusual situation. A woman vicar was preparing to hide all the Christian symbols in her parish church to make it more comfortable for local Muslim women. I…

Addendum to ‘Divine Designs’ by Neil Mackereth

In UK Situation Summary #3 Neil Mackereth refers to the ‘Brexit problem’ and needing to continue earnest intercession, and refers to “an earlier paper” when stating the failure of the EU project is a real possibility and could well follow the pattern of the downfall of the former Soviet Union. We’ve been following indicators of that failure in many postings under Fulfilled Prophecy #13, based upon the word David Noakes received on the Lord bringing about the EU’s downfall (full text at UK/EU in/out #4).

For the purposes of this blog I’m appending Neil’s ‘earlier paper’ (written 2017-18) to Divine Designs, and which reads as follows:

EU and USSR

In both the former USSR and in the EU today, the central governments, initially credited with creating economic well-being, have found that they could not cope with the growing economic challenges.

The flaw in the USSR model was an inflexible, all-encompassing central bureaucracy.

In the EU, it is an unwieldy central monetary policy which, in effect, imposes a single interest rate on all countries and leads to an unmanageable imbalance between strong and weak economies. Furthermore, those countries that have embraced the Euro have lost the ability to control their financial destinies: they can no longer act independently to manage their economic challenges in a way that is specific to their individual needs.

Brexit threatens to precipitate the break-up of the EU. It is propelling the various anti-EU (nationalistic) political movements to renewed vigour. Hard-line Eurosceptic parties are making strong gains – what they thought improbable (leaving the EU) they now see as a distinct possibility.

Whatever people may say; Brexit is both a calamity for the EU and the worst predicament it has ever faced. 2018 will be a pivotal year.

Spiritual Implications

Notwithstanding the clear vote for UK to leave, we are in an interregnum, a time between membership of the EU and our return to independent nationhood. We know where we are going but we are not there yet.

What has happened? God is in the process of removing Great Britain from an unholy alliance and breaking the web of inappropriate soul-ties that have been insidiously constructed over the last 40 years.

The signs of demonic influence in the EU are startlingly obvious, to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. The EU is on a course to disaster and God is rescuing the UK to be a tower of strength, a light in a dark place, in the time of need that is fast approaching.

I am convinced that this series of unexpected outcomes clearly indicates that God’s hand is on Great Britain.’

Many thanks my friend. Let us not forget David Hathaway’s quoting a Ukrainian pastor as saying it was much better for them living under the communists than with the EU!!!

Schematic of the World as ‘Mystery Babylon’ in the End-Times; Mark Davidson

Mark brings a most fascinating, eschatological perspective of our times:

The purpose of this post is to describe how the entire world may be set up for the end times, based on the findings from chiastics in Chronicles of the End Times. This post is not saying what will happen, but what might happen, based on this chiastic study. The diagram presented here will be […]

Unity and Schism

An important and sound reflection in view of recent issues that have upset many of my readers. Am particularly pleased with Nicholas’ central emphasis on ‘accountability’, which is where the many non-traditional, modern churches can be vulnerable – yet 30 years ago ‘heavy shepherding’ gave rise to concerns and reaction to steer away from that style of pastoral oversight.
When I objected to joining a church as a possible new believer the Lord gave me the definitive answer by opening my new bible to Hebrews 13:17 – ‘Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so their work will be a joy and not a burden, for that would be no advantage too you.’ Such a clear directive was foundational to my journey along ‘The Way’!

All Along the Watchtower

Today I have spent some time reflecting on history and tradition, having watched Gavin Ashenden’s presentation on why he left the Church of England. Earlier in the week, I read a post at Cranmer’s site about the problem of schisms in politics and churches. Christianity has a long history of dividing into factions. In the very pages of Scripture we read:

“For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” (1 Corinthians 1:11-13, NKJV)

Verses like these present us with questions. When is it appropriate to put aside one’s differences and go…

Call The Nation To Prayer

A reflection of our own ‘As One‘ event in September last year, published today by Glasgow Prophetic Centre:

Together as One – your Lion Bites word for today

As we go about our day, it seems that we’re inundated with news of division – this side fighting against that side. Very easily, our thoughts are drawn into what’s happening in the nations.

But the Spirit of God says this, ‘Church, do not be drawn into that which divides you. Do not allow the world to draw you into strife. I have called you, my children, those who know me and walk with me, to be one. Be joined together and of one heart in me. Do not let the troubles of this world distract you or draw you in. Focus on me and walk together as one body; for just as I am one with you, walk as…

Game-changing moment: Egyptian President Sisi makes history building largest church in the Mideast…

Quote

A most historically noteworthy event reported by Joel Rosenberg. Perhaps we’re heading towards fulfillment of Isaiah 19:23 on a highway being built from Egypt to Assyria and that both nations will form an alliance with Israel…

(Cairo, Egypt) — It’s impossible to overstate how historic this is: a pious Sunni Muslim Arab President builds the largest church in the Middle East and gives it as a Christmas present to the Christians of his country. Can you remember the last time this happened? Neither can I. Yet this is precisely what happened […]

Teaching from “Chronicles”: how Chiastics brings a breakthrough

Mark Davidson, author of ‘Daniel Revisited’ with its ‘Four Signposts’ perspective of that book’s prophecies (overview here), introduces his new book on a fuller and better way of handling prophetic scriptures.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

This is a brief teaching series to point to the breakthroughs shown us in Chronicles. The book itself is much more detailed.

  • Part 1—Introduction: What Is Chiastics and What It Can Do
  • Part 2—How to Read a Chiastic Passage, in Both Its Forms
  • Part 3—What Parallel Form Tells Us
  • Part 4—What Convergent Form Tells Us
  • Part 5—How These Forms Change the Prophecy Landscape

We’ve been taught all our lives to read the words in the Bible (and in all other books), linearly, one after the other, in sentences. This, of course, is logical. We receive knowledge sufficient to allow us to ask Jesus Christ to be our Savior and to commit our lives to Him.

But this is not all the Bible has in store to teach us. Believe it or not, there is more to teach us beyond what is found in linear sentences.

The words have…

Jarrod Cooper: A new prophetic word on a new season in God

A notification of this in my in-tray preceded a private message on keeping our unity of the Spirit as we move forward in the healing ministry.  SO, I believe we all need to know and weigh this fresh word. Thank you Lord – and Jarrod:

In prayer this morning (3rd May 2018), I felt this word from heaven. I sense God would say: There is a ripping open of the heavenly realms above the United Kingdom right now – bringing the Church into a new season in God. Encounters are increasing; the prophetic realm is being amplified, clarified, and magnified…
