Why I’m on the lookout – will you join me?

[First published 23rd November 2011]

Why? Why am I on watch, acting as a lookout?

In short: I was told to watch – plus a spectacular event made it personal. Yet why do that? To answer this, and other questions, take a quick trip with me back in time.

Like scrolling on electronic devices brings different images into our own virtual or cyber realm, now use your mind’s eye to imagine yourself getting into a ‘time machine’. Are you sitting down? Then let’s go for a ‘spin’… Continue reading

What a night 32 years ago: Jesus rescued me from dropping into Hell…

Upon awaking 32 years ago (14th September 1989), I was utterly happy to find I’m still alive after having had such a very close call with death in the night!

The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But that night had been spent at my childhood home at 212 E___ Rd, Stockport, Cheshire, to undergo a life-changing event.

In a most unusual dream I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that even three decades later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what had happened (copied from original, explanatory comments in italics).: Continue reading

Two visionary signs of the sun

Returning to my focus upon Jesus’ Return you may recall these two confirmations of my ‘nudges’:

As told in Lillian Brown’s message from the Holy Spirit to “Brace yourself. Get ready for Jesus’ soon return!”, pastor Rachel Bird mentioned having that impression some time ago and referred to visions of a supra-natural atomic bomb that her husband and I had. On the following Saturday morning Nina had an open vision that related not only to that but also to Lillian’s asking about the glory, “What will it look like?” (From 17:45 mark of her video she urges us to await God’s glory as Jesus comes closer.)

Here’s my dear wife’s example of what it may look like:

Going into our back garden she saw the sun in a cloudless blue sky sitting well above neighbouring rooftops to her right. However, she then saw directly ahead of her a second sun, making our usual sun rather dim, and sitting lower in the sky over the far horizon. Furthermore, Nina could see a broad beam of light descending from that brilliant new ‘sun’ towards the ground and, as with the normal sun, nothing impeded its light on that cloudless morning.

Her account reminds me of what I’d published last June by Christopher Wickland:

End-Times Briefing 6: Pastor’s ‘Sign in the Sun’ Vision Warns of Coming Global Cataclysm!

Those following these Briefings will appreciate the direct relevance of Sign #27 to this video and transcript, for which I’m grateful for Carolyn Stewart’s very helpful expertise.

On Wednesday 27th May 2020 pastor Christopher posted this alarm or warning on what’s soon to hit the world. (His November 2019 prophecy of a great humbling then spiritual revival of Britain is accurate.) As with all prophecies, please seek the Lord in weighing this vision.

In NKJV, Christopher’s Luke reference is headed ‘The Coming of the Son of Man’:

“Welcome to another thought for the day. Today I have quite a serious message and one which probably many Christians will find a little bit hard to stomach. I will start with this piece of scripture, then I will get straight into it.

“It says in Luke 21 from verse 25: “There will be signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars and on the earth, distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring. Men’s hearts failing them from fear and expectation of things coming upon the earth because the powers of heaven will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”

“The other night I was out for a walk with my wife, and the Holy Spirit really came upon me suddenly. Something happened there and one of these things that happened was that really strongly the Holy Spirit said to me,“There will be signs in the sun very soon.”

Insights into the Rapture and Jesus’ Return

Maxine David in Nova Scotia writes in response to Chris G Bennett’s sharing Johnny Enlow’s “I heard Goliath go THUD. Babylon is fallen!” on 3rd June (emphases mine):

‘I had a vision or visitation through the night last night here in Nova Scotia. I had watched a Youtube video of a brother in Christ who was somewhere in the USA I assume, in a mountainous area, who said God took him into the future in the Spirit, to see what it would be like where he was, after the rapture. Said the one world government was put in place and people had to leave their homes and tough it out out in the wilderness because the one world gov’t was set up and they only way they could keep their homes, bank accounts and so on was to take the mark.

‘It really threw me as I had been hearing things from the Lord about those who remain standing firm in Christ, reigning with Him in His Kingdom – the complete opposite. So the Lord woke up me in the middle of the night and began a series of revelation and visions to show me the difference. I understand it to be the difference between what He’s doing in USA versus Canada. Two different things, keeping them separate in order for each to stand in the gap for one another. After hours of walking through it with Him, it came back to what He’s doing with Trump on the ground. LOL.

‘First, I saw in the Spirit the round circle symbol used on British military planes since 1915. In my mind I understand it to also symbolize the rock group ‘the Who’, as they also used it for their tours and albums. Canadians are big ‘Who’ fans and I saw them a couple of times in Toronto. So it all congeals in my mind as a combination of Battle for Britain (I come from the same hometown as the man put in charge of aircraft production for the Battle of Britain – Max Aitken); and some very memorable Who songs that now bear great relevance to me: “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and “Talking ‘Bout My Generation”, for example.

‘The lyrics to “Won’t Get Fooled Again” are often going through my mind, and I feel it’s God’s way of keeping me alert, speaking to me through things I’ve experienced: “I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution; Take a bow for the new revolution; Smile and grin at the change all around; Pick up my guitar and play; Just like yesterday; Then I’ll get on my knees and pray; We don’t get fooled again.” It’s a powerful way to reach the younger generations with this kind of ministry.

‘Anyway, that’s just one thing the Lord showed me as a Kingdom-hearted Canadian. From the Canadian perspective the spiritual battle is ‘in the air’ and related to the New Jerusalem’s intercession for USA / Israel on the ground. (LOL, I just heard in the Spirit “It’s a GATED community!”)

Then I heard the Lord call me to drive to New Glasgow today, to meet Him ‘in the air’. New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, is the location where the Scottish first landed in Canada. When I even thought about going there, I saw an open heaven and the Lord Himself riding on a horse. I heard in the Spirit “Behold He comes, riding on the clouds, shining like the sun at the TRUMPET call. Lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee, and out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes.”  I heard the word ‘Captain” as in “Captain of the angel armies” and the word ‘TRUMPET’ in the air showed me an open heaven with a TRUMP on the ground, ready to do battle on earth as He is in heaven.

Then the Lord started to sing to ME “Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty, early in the morning my song shall rise to thee..” 

I felt it coming from my own heart, as if greeting the Lord ‘in the air’. Constantly feeling like the victory for Canada begins with the UK and manifests in joining the battle on the ground in USA.

So I’m going to drive to New Glasgow today and see what happens next. Hallelujah for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns.

I ask, “From this do you sense the Rapture will happen after the major harvest of souls and revival arising from the Glory of the Lord becoming widespread? Maxine replies:

As it relates to the Rapture, as I think I wrote before, I believe I’ve been hearing from the Lord that the timeline is pushed back to take in another generation for a billion-fold harvest. All this stuff I’m seeing today comes to me as ALL being part of the rapture as it’s happening ‘in the air’ in a way that heaven comes to earth and meets me in the air. It feels like it’s part of being a Kingdom son for whom all of creation awaits, and it’s all about redemption of whatever can be redeemed in the fullness of His Kingdom. I didn’t get a sense of going UP anywhere, but instead see open visions of heaven while I’m on the ground.

‘Reading of these brothers and sisters is very exciting.’

Therefore I added:

’Also I’d remind you of what I shared last year about the word Paul Keith Davis gave me 12-15 yrs ago. In walking up an aisle at Bath City Church to give a word to someone at the back, he went past me sitting immediately alongside that aisle but suddenly whilst l walking he looked me directly in the eye and said, “Await His Return!”

’Someone I know – and of our age – confided a similar insight as applying for himself. AND a lady I know in her early 90’s believes she too will still be alive for the Rapture!!

’SOoo if those ‘words’ are true then we haven’t too long to go!’

PS. I informed Maxine about publication and she says,

“I was talking about this just yesterday to some people in my home. His Presence is unmistakable. It leaves a believer like Daniel, totally shaken to the core, feeling like I’ve died but I’m still breathing. Yet the holiness is ‘to die for’ anyway.

WOW what timing! I ‘d started drafting this 10 days ago but unable to action ’til now!

RB FOOTNOTE:

Upon re-reading to edit, I’m strongly struck in my spirit by Maxine’s hearing descriptive reference to “Captain of the angel armies”. That’s exactly the understanding I had upon seeing the heavenly battle on the night of my personal life-changing visitation over the night of 13-14 Sept 1989.

Wonderful vision and warning reminder – Chris G Bennett

I’m grateful to Chris for permission to republish his Facebook items, especially this from  today. It is very well-timed as a useful introduction to post I’ve been preparing and now scheduled for tomorrow of visions of the Rapture!

I had a wonderful vision and warning today.

I saw trumpeters, dressed in white – they may have been angels – preparing to sound a fanfare. They were all blowing their instruments, just like you see an orchestra warming up. They were excited, chattering, and looking around kind of expectantly, almost looking for the conductor to make snide appearance. Suddenly he appeared, not dressed in white like the trumpeters, but sort of ‘dressed down’ a little bit. I understood from this that I was watching a rehearsal!

In proper conductor style, he mounted a small podium and tapped it several times with his baton. The trumpeters were instantly in the ready position, instruments to their lips, all eyes watching. The conductor raised his baton and held it aloft while he did a very quick scan to endure they were all ready. Then he brought it down and the trumpeters started playing.

Oh, the sound! It was a beautiful melodious fanfare, at once both militaristic, triumphant, yet fluently flowing with melody and counter melody. Almost close harmony except that there were probably two or three dozen players. Each seemed to have a melody of his own, yet the whole sound was beautifully melodic, each complimenting the others. It really was beautiful. The sound drifted as a cloud over them and each trumpeter had a look of sheer bliss – they were loving it.

The sound covered the earth like a mist or thin cloud. I was able to see people from every part of the world as they looked up to see what was happening. The effect on those listening was electric. Some were looking up pointing and shouting and jumping excitedly. Many just looked puzzled, while a small proportion looked angrily around them, shouting curses at those who were celebrating.

I knew I was watching the Rapture. Was it a rehearsal? Was it the real thing? Was it just a little glimpse of that which is soon to come. As I watched, I saw those who were celebrating just disappear – in the twinkling of an eye – and I saw several of those looking puzzled disappeared too. Many left behind looked shocked and distraught, while some continued to look angrily about them and continued to hurl curses at anyone close enough to hear them.

Altogether a disturbing, yet confirming vision. I didn’t think it needed much interpretation but the Lord still spoke to me.

“Are you still wondering about this. Many are, and many are doing little or nothing to prepare. Yet you need to keep on warning them, keep telling them that I AM is coming. I did not leave you that picture of the wise and foolish virgins for nothing. It wasn’t just an allegorical tale to entertain you. It was a pictorial warning. Time is so short, yet so many either think there is plenty of time, or they just don’t believe I am coming at all. You have taken the scripture, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick!” (Proverbs 13:12), and you have applied it to My return. You have said in your heart, “What’s the use – He’s not coming yet, if at all!” You have believed the enemy’s lies! Don’t let him rob you! Don’t let him kill, rob, and destroy all that you hope for. That’s the only weapon he has – the fear of hope deferred! I AM is coming, and coming suddenly, coming soon – much sooner than many expect or think possible.”

“What you have seen here is literal; it’s a foretaste, a forewarning of that which WILL come. REAP THE HARVEST, BUT ALSO TELL THE PEOPLE I AM IS COMING VERY SOON. TELL THEM, TELL THEM, AND TELL THEM AGAIN!”, says the Lord.

Preparing for the End of the Age – Chris G Bennett

Dipped into Fbk for couple minutes over last weekend and immediately saw this by Chris G Bennett and agree this is indeed part of End-time scenario. Why else would I have been directed of late to return to blogging on it??? Wot-a-way to spend Bank Holiday Monday!

PREPARING FOR THE END OF THE AGE

Thinking about all that is going on in the world, especially America right now, I suppose I, like many others, often wonder when the “reset” is going to happen. I’m an undisguised Trumpeter and I don’t mind admitting it. But sometimes I wonder why everything takes so long and I ask “what’s the hold up?” I wondered why revival isn’t yet in full swing? and why the political scene is still so corrupted?

Well the Lord answered me by bringing to my attention this passage from Isaiah –

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”  (Isaiah 40:3-5)

God showed me that He is still preparing us for Revival. Even more than that, He is preparing the way for reform in the political world. It’s all so that the glory of the Lord can be revealed; it’s so the fear of the Lord can be restored to both sacred and secular; it’s so that, whatever the Lord has decided to do will be accomplished without too much pain for us! Being humans who tend to trust our fellow man, we need preparing for the shocks still to come because we would not believe the inhumanity of man to man – especially children! It has to be done slowly and carefully, and with great credibility, before the majority will accept it!

This may not just be the ‘great reset’. It may also be part of God’s “End of the Age” scenario. Think on that for a moment too! Jesus doesn’t even know His plan for that – if He did, He’d tell us! Yet more and more prophets are speaking into this. There’s some notable exceptions but for the most part the prophets are in agreement. So, if this really is all part of God’s End of the Age scenario, then we need to be preparing too. Preparing first by accepting and receiving the role, and the mantle for that role, that Jesus assigns to us.

Are you ready to do whatever He asks of you? Am I? I hope so, because I just want to serve His Kingdom purposes.

How about you?

PS. Chris comments as follows on a lengthy discussion on my Fbk version of  Holy Spirit Says “Brace Yourself Get Ready For Jesus’ Soon Return  (NB. Precise sequencing of these items isn’t guaranteed as from different timelines):

I so agree with Chris Moyler when he commented this :-
“When I hear from prophetic folk, “The King is Coming!”, I am NOT thinking of the biblical Second Coming, but rather the King Coming to the earth in an ABIDING rather than a mere visitation (wonderful though these are!)”
Applying a little lateral-thinking, what does ‘the King is coming’ actually say? Nothing much! The real question cannot be any single subject but rather, first, HOW is He coming? Is He coming in Revival, Awakening, Rapture, Return, or what? The question of ‘when’ is almost immaterial until we answer the ‘how’! In my book, revival is for the church and awakening is for the nation. I hope we’re all agreed that revival and awakening must come before Rapture, and that, depending upon your theology, must come before or at least concurrent with return! Although as a matter of purely personal opinion, nothing more nothing less, I believe the Rapture is not immediately imminent, but neither is it many decades, my only concern today is when the King is coming in awakening and revival. Until this final harvest is brought in, nothing else need concern us other than being like the wise virgins – ready, lamps full, wicks trimmed – but in the mean time getting on with the work at hand NOW!

Eschatologically speaking – Chris G Bennett

Chris posted this on Facebook Friday 28th May and I greatly appreciate his stance:

ESCHATOLOGICALLY SPEAKING

Following my recent post on the coming King – “Soon and Very Soon We’re Going to See the King” – I’ve seen much discussion on exactly what that means. Is it the Rapture? Is it Revival? Is it Armageddon and the Return to Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives?

This is a very personal response to those questions, and I know there will be many who disagree with me, but here’s my current thinking – and before anyone starts to shout, “You’re wrong!”, I want to quote a scripture – “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12)

NONE of us, NOT ONE, is anywhere close to being the sole arbiter of truth. Please remember that and choose your words carefully IF you wish to comment in disagreement.

Armageddon and the Return – I really do think there’s a few things, biblical prophecies like the rebuilt Temple, the Antichrist, the Gospel taken to every tribe and tongue, and more, to be fulfilled before Jesus returns. However, there’s also much being fulfilled of late, many signs, which gives us the impression that it will be sooner rather than later. I think this is not yet, but events are moving very quickly and it could just surprise a few folk!

The Rapture – ah, the Rapture! With so much disagreement over whether or not there will even be a “Rapture”, the discussions over this topic are endless. But in the context of ‘Soon and very soon’, I do believe it could be quite imminent.

There are those who vehemently disagree with this, who say it’s not for years yet, I’ve even heard as much as hundreds of years!  Whilst I respect them, I also disagree with them.

When Jesus tells me, whispers to me, (emphasis RB’s) that He’s coming VERY, VERY SOON, I tend to listen to Him. When He shouts it – I sit up and pay close attention. I’m not saying any of us is right or wrong, I’m only saying, telling, reporting that which I believe I’ve heard from the Lord Himself!

For those who believe as I do, there’s the belief that the Antichrist, the man of iniquity, cannot be revealed until after the Rapture – and that’s just for starters. The subject is so huge that I don’t wish to start another pointless, endless argument – I’m just stating my personal position. Many may well have different views. That’s OK too.

Revival – another ‘hot potato’ in the church! Revival has started already! Maybe not in a church near you, but it has started elsewhere in the world! The thing is that it really is different from anything we’ve seen before! To those who look for another Welsh Revival or another Azusa Street – how can it possibly be the same – that was over 100 years ago! It won’t be like the Hebridean Revival, or Argentina, or Toronto, Brownsville, Lakeland, the Bay nor any other recent move of God.

There will be an outburst of the ‘greater things will you do’ of which Jesus spoke. Greater miracles, greater wonders, more and greater signs, way beyond our imagination, will be the hallmark of this revival.

So, “Soon and Very Soon We’re Going to See the King”, what does it actually mean?

Does it mean He’s coming in Revival, in Rapture, in His physical Return to Jerusalem?

Well, I’ve already said that I don’t believe it is His physical return, but I do believe it will be BOTH Revival AND Rapture – Revival then Rapture. Revival, already started, carrying on for some time, then concluding with Rapture. How long? 5 or 6 years is my belief – within the next ten years at least!

There you have my personal position! I don’t mind if you disagree because I’m not the sole arbiter of truth, but neither are you. This is not a discussion, just a response to questions.

Soon and very soon, we’re going to see the King! – Chris G Bennett

You may recall my three posts** of late last week about being increasingly nudged to refocus upon the original purpose of my writing? Now, another week and the urging is getting stronger – plus several folk are confirming this in writing/replying on the same matter!

Here’s an encouraging word along the same vein reposted last Tuesday, 25th May, by Chris G Bennett on his Facebook (coloured text by RB):

SOON AND VERY SOON, WE’RE GOING TO SEE THE KING!

I had a very telling encounter with the Lord today. I felt a very urgent pull to get away and alone with a Him. I tried twice – both times a miserable and abject failure. Eventually, when I got back home again, I found Him waiting for me. He didn’t waste time on pleasantries!

“Tell My people, tell them I’m coming!”

“They know you’re coming Lord!”

“They don’t believe Me. They need to be told again! Tell the people, I’m coming! Again and again! Keep on telling them until I tell you to stop!”

“OK Lord, I get the message.”

“You know, sometimes I don’t think even you, and ones like you, get hold of the urgency of My message. Tell them – I AM THAT I AM IS COMING VERY VERY SOON!”

Got it yet? I have.

Yet I wonder how many really have gotten hold of this message and its implications.

Jesus is coming soon for His Bride. We’ve known this nigh on two thousand years. So why don’t we act as though we understand. Where’s the urgency, the passion, the crying out for the lost? Where’s the tearful repentance, the joyous salvation? Where’s the healing the sick, the deaf hearing, the blind seeing, the dead raised? Where’s the prisoners freed, delivered, unbound, and their families with them?

If Jesus returned tonight, what would you be like? Have you filled your lamp and trimmed your wick? Are you truly ready? Would you be ready to say to Him,”No Lord, I need to stay behind for my family!” There’s not one word in the Bible to suggest that’s an option, but would you do it?

Where’s our urgency to get the lost saved? To get the sick healed? Or the bound freed?
Jesus is coming soon for His precious Bride and she’s just not fully prepared, not ready!
We are His people. We are called by His name. Have we turned from our wicked ways? Have we repented? Has the Lord forgiven us and started to heal our land? If not, when are we going to catch on and start?

I leave you with the Lord’s own words –

“You know, sometimes I don’t think even you, and ones like you, get hold of the urgency of My message. Tell them – I AM THAT I AM IS COMING VERY, VERY SOON!”

 

** Footnote:

Here’s links to those items in case you’ve yet to ‘take a dip’ and learn of their directly personal relevance > Back to Blog’s Basics: Jesus” Return Will Be Sooner Than We-think!Holy Spirit Says ‘Brace Yourself, Get Ready for Jesus’ Soon Return!” — Supra-natural Light of God’s Glory is Manifesting on Earth – Prophecy and Testimony. NB. As on previous occasions, opposition was encountered over the second and which clearly indicates its great importance.

Back to blog’s basics – Jesus’ Return will be sooner than we think!

Two weeks ago this morning I wrote there were several things in my blog’s pipeline, my ‘mental in-tray’ of items I could blog about, viz: Israel under rocket barrage – Iran as its master-mind – Arizona ballot-checking – UK anti-Bible thought-police (uniformed and collegiate) – US/French military objections to national breakdown – End-times update – return focus to UK prophecy/news?   I ended up covering “something big” that led into the ‘MOAB’ – Mother Of All Bombs – in Arizona and subsequent updates.

SO, my main intention got postponed – BUT has since been confirmed by others and must now become THE prime focus for a while.

I wanted to tell how the previous items on John Kerry’s leaks on Israel to Iran’s foreign minister connected into what the Lord showed me 35 years ago, when I was an anti-church New Ager! > the direct relevance of Bible prophecy for our days!

Throughout the lots of subsequent material I kept –  AND keep getting – strong nudges to publish that account because it’s the raison-d’etre for my starting writing 12 years ago, as in this blog’s strap-line: ‘Looking for the signs of Jesus’ return’.

In point of fact, with that urging to focus upon the Lord’s Second Advent I determined to do so after my blog breaks through 2,000,000 views, which it did last weekend.

WHAT’s MORE, that decision has since been clearly confirmed – thrice!

How those deeply stirring confirmations arrived and brought fresh insights is told in the next post...and then in its next from Veronika West…

1st Sunday of Advent reminds us Jesus Christ is soon to return!

First Sunday in Advent

Yesterday, Sunday 29th November, not only marks the beginning of Advent but also is personally nostalgic because of the life-changing dream 31 years ago that brought a totally unexpected and radical encounter with Jesus Christ.

FIRST & SECOND ADVENTS

Note Wikipedia’s entry on Advent because I’m especially surprised its emphasis is not upon Jesus’ birth, BUT UPON HIS RETURN, viz.: Continue reading

Jesus ‘arrested’ me to stop me dropping into Hell…

Upon awaking 31 years ago tomorrow (14th September 1989), I was so happy to find I’m still alive after having had a close call with death in the night!

End-Times Briefing 10 cont’d: key signs and prophecies

We continue Annex A to Simplicity and examine some items in earlier Briefings:

KEY END-TIME (or SECOND ADVENT) SIGNS and PROPHECIES

An awareness of End-Time signs will help us to see if any world events, as they unfold in the weeks, months and years ahead, can honestly be described as fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Analysis of world events in relation to prophecy requires care and integrity, both to ensure genuine spiritual significance, and to avoid “false news”, conspiracy theories and the pronouncements of false prophets. It will be exceedingly hard to convince a sceptical world that prophecy is being fulfilled!

Some prophecies in the Bible seem particularly significant, in light of current world events, especially in the Middle-East. The following prophecies are worth bearing in mind, especially by those who are intentional about marrying historic prophecies with contemporary occurrences. They are, in short, signs of the End-Times: Continue reading

End-Times Briefing 10: the centre line – where are we now?

Annex A to Neil Mackereth’s paper Simplicity goes deeper into Matthew 24 signs than earlier Briefings 2: the ‘When?’ and 3: the ‘What?’ of Watching [cross-references to the book of Daniel are mine]:

1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”

THE CENTRE LINE OF END-TIME PROPHECY – WHERE ARE WE NOW?

At the start of Matthew 24 the disciples are seeking Jesus’ acknowledgement that the Temple is a beautiful building.  They were shocked by His response, that the Temple would be utterly destroyed, not one stone left on another.  This startling prophetic statement leads them to ask two very significant questions:

“When will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” (Jesus responds to this as two questions, the second having two parts)

Before answering these questions, Jesus warns the disciples against being deceived by people falsely claiming to be Christ. This thread of potential deception by false prophets continues throughout the chapter.  Continue reading

End-Times Briefing 6: pastor’s ‘Sign in the Sun’ vision warns of coming global cataclysm!

Those following these Briefings will appreciate the direct relevance of Sign #27 to this video and transcript, for which I’m grateful for Carolyn Stewart’s very helpful expertise and schedule.

On Wednesday 27th May pastor Christopher Wickland posted this alarm or warning on what’s soon to hit the world. (To date, his November 2019 prophecy of a great humbling then spiritual revival of Britain is accurate.) As with all prophecies, please seek the Lord in weighing this vision.

In NKJV, Christopher’s Luke reference is headed ‘The Coming of the Son of Man’:

“Welcome to another thought for the day. Today I have quite a serious message and one which probably many Christians will find a little bit hard to stomach. I will start with this piece of scripture, then I will get straight into it. Continue reading

‘Triple Twelves’ general election is really ‘Quadruple Twelves’!

You may recall reading, and hopefully not too puzzled by, Triple-Twelve Significance of December’s General Election. I noted the PM’s inspired selection of the 12th day of the 12th month, and which is also the 12th day of Advent, for this overdue political event.

The blog generated a lot of interesting contributions, of which a number brought more insight, as follows:

“Everything is on track, prophetically speaking. Veronika West’s 2 chairs prophecy now enters its final month, ending at end of Nov or thereabouts – Chris Moyler [see below].

“2019 also adds up to 12!” – Wendy Weeldon.

“I am fascinated by the work of the Almighty. I remember sometime ago messaging you that the Lord had one more thing to reveal – I sense this is it and what a surprise – numbers are so important in the works of the Lord. I knew 3×12 was not enough! 4×12 is 48 and the day after, 49 – Jubilee is the day on which the result will be declared. (Emphasis mine)

“Alleluia … The General Election is in His hands – Jubilee – Sabbaths’ Sabbath – the year of release! Alleluia!”- email from Erica.

Also, the Facebook page brought a host of comments. Those on numbering are as follows:

Jeroma Davies: “The No 12 signifies perfection re: 12 Disciples,12 Tribes of Israel, 144,000 made up of 12×12 in scripture. But for us as a Nation God is Releasing a PERFECT FOUNDATIONAL GOVERNMENT!  Amen.”

Maxine Phyllis: “It speaks to me of the three-dimensional New Jerusalem, described in Revelation 21 as 12,000 stadia in length, and width, and height. The wall was measured as 144 cubits in human measurement (v.16-17).

Yvonne Coombs: “The twelve tribes with the four banners! England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales…Success of UK and any other Country is to bless Israel and the 12 relates to the 12 tribes of Judah and there are the four banners of those tribes and this I believe spiritually represents England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, a symbolic alignment of God’s will that correlates with blessing Israel…The 4 Divisions or Groups of 3 Tribes, were headed by the Tribes of Judah, Reuben, Ephraim and Dan, and the principal banners of these four tribes are shown in the East ‐ A Lion, A Man, An Ox and an Eagle. [To this I added links to Vision of Lion & Four Faces of God and Veronika West’s similar vision.

The Facebook thread closed with further, notable thoughts from intercessor Maxine over in Nova Scotia submitted last weekend as follows (extracts only).:

“Today I went to read scripture and the Bible opened at the NEXT chapter (book of Esther). My eyes immediately fell on verse 1 chapter nine, which says “On the thirteenth day of the TWELFTH month, the month of Adar, the order commanded by the King was to be carried out.” There was a period of time between the month of Sivan (called the THIRD month in the Bible) and the month of Adar (TWELFTH month) in which preparations were made to seize the final victory. That’s a nine-month period which lines up with Veronika West’s post about the baby’s head crowning, etc. Not sure of how the Jewish months are calculated but the month of Adar is equivalent to February/March on ours, lining up with the date of Purim in 2020. It comes to me that the time between December 12, 2019 (election date) and Purim 2020 will call for powerful times of rising up and driving the enemy back..

“It comes to me that there are TWO twelves happening with Brexit; one representing the Kingdom of God manifesting on the earth (one which I’ve heard the Lord say “is Jewish from beginning to end”) and one in the New Jerusalem above, who is free and who is our mother (Galatians 4:26). It’s a full circle event in which the fullness of the Kingdom sees both Spirit-led Christians and Jews overcoming the enemy entirely…”

SO, a most hearty and grateful thankyou goes not only to the above but also to all my readers.

ANALYSIS

The references to a fourth 12 by Wendy and Erica, together with Yvonne’s reference to four and Jeroma and Maxine’s implied references to solidity, served to enhance Chris’ reminder of the dream of two chairs at a meeting of Boris Johnson and the Queen that Veronika West reported on 26th July (see Pray for New PM Boris Johnson).

Those emphatic changes of the election’s date from a triple-12 to quadruple-12, indicate the importance of that dream’s possible manifestation. Study therefore, this extract of Veronika’s posting:

“Now in the dream I saw Boris Johnson shaking hands with Her Majesty the Queen and they both began to chat with one another about the new position of influence that Boris would have in the days ahead in the Nation. As I watched them talk in the dream they both proceeded to sit down together, and as they went to take their seats, suddenly I noticed that the CHAIR that PM Boris Johnson took was a chair that LOOKED LIKE AN OLD ANTIQUE CHAIR, WHICH WAS NOT ONLY VERY EXPENSIVE BUT VERY, VERY FRAGILE, NOW AS I LOOKED AGAIN IN THE DREAM AT THIS OLD AND EXPENSIVE ANTIQUE CHAIR, THE FOUR (4) LEGS OF THE CHAIR WERE IMMEDIATELY HIGHLIGHTED TO ME AS SOMETHING VERY SIGNIFICANT, BOTH the number of legs that the chair had (4) and the fact that THE LEGS OF THE CHAIR LOOKED VERY SKINNY AND NOT VERY STRONG…

“…But as I was praying in the dream, suddenly I heard THESE WORDS, “WATCH AND PRAY FOR THE NEXT FOUR MONTHS WILL BE MARKED WITH GREAT UNCERTAINTY AND DANGER FOR PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON AND HIS CABINET, FOR THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO WILL RELENTLESSLY SEEK TO UNSEAT HIM AND TO BRING DOWN HIS GOVERNMENT”..!

“On Hearing those words in the dream, I began to CRY OUT FOR THE NATION ONCE AGAIN..! And suddenly the dream shifted and I saw the Queen stand up and I heard her say these words to PM Boris Johnson, “COME! DO NOT SIT ON THAT SEAT, IT’S NOT VERY STRONG OR STURDY BUT RATHER SIT ON THIS SEAT”..,and I watched as Her Majesty then led PM Boris Johnson to the CHAIR OF WINSTON CHURCHILL… and I watched as PM BORIS JOHNSON THEN SAT DOWN UPON THE LARGE AND COMFORTABLE CHAIR WHICH HAD BELONGED TO SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL!”

CONCLUSION

My readers’ references to ‘improving’ 3 x 12 up to 4 x 12, appears to confirm Veronika’s repeated emphasis upon 4, especially in changing chairs from one of weak legs to one of four very sturdy legs for governmental (ie: No. 12) purposes.

Triple-twelve significance of December’s general election

At long last a semblance of purpose has emerged from the utterly shameful, shambolic, divisive collection of those who supposedly represent the British people in Parliament. By a massive majority of 438 ‘for’ vs. 20 ‘against’, they voted to hold a general election and which will be on Thursday 12th December, the twelfth month of 2019.

Let’s look first at the scriptural significance of number 12. Bible Study website states,  ‘The meaning of 12, which is considered a perfect number, is that it symbolises God’s power and authority, as well as serving as a perfect governmental foundation. It can also symbolize completeness or the nation of Israel as a whole’  As my birthday is on 22nd I especially note that, ‘Twelve can be found in 187 places in God’s word (and) Revelation alone has 22 occurrences of the number.’  (For examples of its occurrence  click the above link.)

Therefore, I conclude it is highly significant that a British government without operational majority, and thus continually stymied by the House of Commons, is to be renewed by a fresh vote of the people on a date that’s not only doubly significant for governing (ie. on 12th of the 12th) but also – and of great spiritual import – on the 12th day of Advent!

The liturgical season of Advent is observed in many Churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for celebrating the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas, but begins with the expectation of Jesus’ return at the Second Coming. The term ‘advent’ is from the Latin word meaning “coming”.  [Note direct relevance of Advent to when Jesus visited me as I was about to die and thus rescued me from the devil’s domain!!]

Hence, the great import of this general election’s ‘triple-twelve’ timing.

Futhermore, it augments as well as endorses prophecies about Prime Minister Johnson and Brexit, especially the word Veronika West received about the first four months of his premiership leading into a general election as “marked with great fragility, uncertainty and danger”, including treachery!!

Overseas Observer’s Insights:

‘Watcher’ Roger Jervois in South Africa perspicaciously notes on 7th September under heading ‘Boris in Armour – Big Ben’, “I wonder if Jeroma’s prophecy about Boris being suited up in armour has a link to the miraculous sign about to happen in Big Ben – also undergoing restoration? Extract below, passage underlined:

“The strongholds that have been embedded from inception of time in the Governmental framework is being rooted and cast out as our God is turning the hands of time in restructuring / Restoring our Nation.”

On 30 September he adds, ‘Just a thought…what if God makes Big Ben’s hands turn backwards? Eg, pointing toward the past glory of Britain?’

Then last Sunday: ‘Cryptic clue from the prophetic Big Ben painting…”The Eye”.  Could it be the London Eye going backwards to mark end of BST), to be followed by Big Ben’s clock going backwards?

‘And we are in the Eleventh hour of Mankind. I read somewhere that the WWI Armistice, 11 o’clock, 11th of the 11th month was pivotal in the Jewish calendar. It was when Allenby walked through Jerusalem as well.

Now, last night, Roger updates with, ‘And now we have a clue in the election date: 12/12…..

‘Follow the logic:
  • 12 tribes of Israel
  • After the 11th, there is Benjamin, a season of grace and undeserved mercy. As Joseph received Benjamin, so Jesus receives our generation who are in Christ.
  • Finally, time is up and the “elect” are selected out – hence the symbolism of the 12th of December election.
  • It is a forewarning of these last days.’

It’s certainly something to ponder and pray about…

PPS: So many readers made valuable contributions upon this thesis that warranted a follow-up posting. So now read ‘Triple 12’ for Gen Election is really ‘Quadruple 12’!

Big Ben Hangs at 11th hour, Soon to Strike 12 wherein Jennifer LeClaire reports, ‘As I kept on looking, I noticed the hand on the clock was closer to the 12 than it was to the 11 – much closer. It was as if there were only moments left before we would hear the reverberating sound of the massive hammer striking the bell to mark a new day.

‘I heard the Lord say, “When Big Ben strikes 12, there will be a shift in the nation.”

‘This is a governmental shift, as the number 12 represents government. What’s more, the iconic 96-metre high clock tower stands at the northern end of the Palace of Westminster.’

30 years ago last night Jesus stopped me dropping into Hell

Upon awaking 30 years ago today (14th September 1989) I knew events in the early hours had been a landmark in my destiny.

The previous evening in Pangbourne,  Berks, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But the night had been spent at my childhood home at 212 E___ Rd, Stockport, to undergo a life-changing event. Continue reading

Back to Biblical Basics: direct Word on Jesus’ Return, and vision of Iran

At Tuesday morning’s coffee & cake meeting outside Haslemere, someone asked the worship leader to do some older songs. The first was new to me, but then came ‘These Are The Days of Elijah’ followed by Noel Richards’ famous song, so pertinent for today (courtesy paroles-musique):

“Great is the darkness
That covers the earth,
Oppression, injustice and pain.
Nations are slipping
In hopeless despair
Though many have come in Your name,
Watching while sanity dies,
Touched by the madness and lies.

[Chorus, verse 2 and chorus, then rejoicing in final verse:]

“Great celebrations
On that final day
When out of the heavens You come.
Darkness will vanish
All sorrow will end
And rulers will bow at Your throne,
Our great commission complete
Then face to face we shall meet:

Come Lord Jesus, come Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit we pray.
Come Lord Jesus, come Lord Jesus,
Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

Whilst singing the chorus I noticed Nina look at me, then sit down, take paper out of her handbag and jot a short phrase. Her expression and shaky stance told me she’s being touched by the Holy Spirit. Afterwards, she told me that in the chorus she distinctly heard the Lord whisper in her ear, and thus in block caps (black ink) notes His words,

“IT’S SOONER THAN YOU THINK!!!”

Nina knows it’s not about any Revival but, as urged in the song, all about His Return.

+  +  +

I now ask, however, “Is that before, upon or after what we were soon to hear?”

The promise Nina heard becomes even more poignant by what the guest speakers from Elam Ministries reported on Christianity’s rapid growth through underground churches in Turkey and Iran, and thus moving rapidly towards the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:34-39 – the Judgement of Elam (Persia/Iran)

[WOWEE, I’m getting a very strong sense of ‘deja vu’ in what I’m doing, as though the event, situation and what I’m blogging has already been done: but this confirms it’s all God’s Timing!!!]

“I will set My throne in Elam, And will destroy from there the king and the princes,” says the Lord. (Jer 49:39 NKJV)

It was awe-inspiring to hear a young lady pastor’s account of life in jail after her house church was raided and closed. Also, that only last week an ex-Muslim 14 years-old boy had a vision of mosques in Iran tumbling down and being replaced by churches!

Afterwards, I mentioned this strongly reminded me of the declaration I heard announced from heaven of the “Fall of Islam”, and of the lightning strike upon the Grand Temple in Mecca on 14th anniversary of the attack upon New York’s towers (as recounted here and linked herein respectively).

So the Lord’s pointing us back to what His Word says about His Return….(next posts).

…The night Jesus Christ takes me to task and rescues me!

Upon awaking twenty-nine years ago today (14th September 1989) I knew events in the early hours had been a landmark in my destiny. The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But the night had been spent at 212 E_Road in Stockport, Cheshire, for a life-changing event. (Hence my laughing at the title of yesterday’s post GPS #21.2: God’s Voice Thunders. That number had also cropped up after I first blogged about this testimony!)

In a most unusual dream that night I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that nearly 30 years later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what happened (dream content blue font, comments black italics).:

First Sunday of Advent and a personal foretaste of Jesus’ return

Yesterday, Sunday 3rd December, saw the celebration of the First Sunday of Advent 2017. It’s always highly nostalgic to me because of a life-changing dream in 1989 that brought a totally unexpected and radical encounter with Jesus Christ.

FIRST & SECOND ADVENTS

The First Advent was when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea 2,000 years ago. The four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and start the church year.  In traditional churches the scriptural readings for the First Sunday in Advent are usually on the glorious return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign on earth, known as the Second Advent.

My encounter featured two highly personal aspects of my life; thereby validating the experience as real, not imaginary. Amazingly, both validations are directly related to the First and Second Advents and enhanced my interest in End-Times, by which I’d been figuratively grabbed by an Invisible Hand only a few years earlier.

Six years ago this week, soon after launching this blog, I posted details of the encounter – one that gave a personal foretaste of the Second Advent!

One aspect I haven’t previously referred to, however, now needs highlighting in view of current events I must blog about. So it’s important for you, my reader, to appreciate the wider grounds upon which I take my stand AND call fellow disciples of Christ to TAKE A STAND.:

THE VISITATION

The brief account On a Trapdoor into Hell – Jesus Swoops to the Rescue tells the full story.

My background was one of deep involvement in New Age, Gnostic and occultic notions with meditational and mystical practices. Although not a practitioner, I was nevertheless  aware of the principles of witchcraft. Those practices had led to some unusual ‘psychic’ dreams, but none whatsoever were like this one.

This dream’s sudden ‘gearing up’ into the supernatural reality of demonic and angelic activity and the appearance of Jesus Christ above the clouds and His fast descent towards me, startlingly made me conscience-stricken and realise the truth of judgement – in great dread, mine was about to happen NOW!  And because of my sins I was now about to be dropped right into Hell – so in terror I just had to hide from HIM!  (And I did…but!)

Later, I understand that terror had been ‘the fear of God’ brought through Holy Spirit in convicting me of my sinfulness (ie. wrongdoing) and, thus, preparing me to receive God’s grace (ie. undeserved favour).

However, only this weekend have I realised another scriptural relevance of that fear – and that I’D BEEN BLESSED WITH A FORETASTE OF THINGS TO COME! 

APOCALYPSE – THE SIXTH SEAL OPENS:

‘The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great and day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Rev6:15-17)

My reaction to that visitation from Jesus very closely matches the reactions described in Revelation chapter 6 to earth-and-heavens-shaking events that will lead into His return.  It could be said that, in addition to natural fear, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11:2) will come upon them.

So, I’ll be using that personal aspect as grounds for praying in a particular way for the conviction of sin and sincere repentance of reprobates who serve satan’s schemes.

Hence my taking note at the close of Emma Stark’s video of 24th November on the Lord’s preference for the kind of revival we should pray for.  ‘He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now…a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,:

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”
