Vision of Jerusalem with angels – pray for its peace!

In addition to Tony Puccio’s comment about the need to pray for Jerusalem in response to my Update post, he’s also blogged:

Jerusalem has been proclaimed by President Trump as the capital of Israel. This has caused much turmoil among the surrounding nations to put it mildly. What I’ve seen in a vision today, however, was a walled city and there was a lot of dust being kicked up without the city. On each of the […]

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.”

Is a mighty ‘Reformer’ angel to strike the earth soon?

In view of Dr Bill Hamon’s statements since 2008 on the Third Church Reformation, and the previous post of Emma Stark being granted a vision of disarray in Satan’s camp, as well as learning about a ‘holy, reverential fear of the Lord’ revival, the following vision published on The Elijah List makes interesting reading. In view of the promised outcome by mid-2018 its veracity can soon be checked. Upon considering more fully, I believe it warrants much greater emphasis:

AN ANGELIC ‘REFORMER’ WILL COME AND STRIKE THE EARTH WITHIN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS

THE REFORMER

As I sat alone in my quiet corner, I begin to ponder about the reformation of Martin Luther. The courage that this man had, a determination in his soul and spirit, to see the Spirit of the living God awaken the suppressed believer. As my mind became captivated by the very thought of reformation, I began to get a prophetic word. I saw an angelic being, male-looking, who was at least 30 feet tall, maybe more. He was standing with a sword in his right hand and a white (surrender) flag in his left. He said his name is “Reformer”.

Then, I heard him speak precisely, as if the sound of his voice was carrying across many waters. He was not God, but I knew in an instant, he was an angel of the Lord. I realized that the oceans were listening to the sound of the voice of this angel, and all of creation was responding. He is high-ranking archangel.

I sat very still…still looking with my spirit, when the vision had an interruption. I saw a bird fly past this massive angel. The bird had the face of the dove, yet powerful like an eagle. He swooped past this tall archangel called Reformer. The angel bowed in reverence, and all of creation began to respond in reverence as well. My heart began to pound so hard that I thought it was going to burst out of my body.

The angel began to move swiftly, yet he did not touch the ground. The sword, however, was turned upside down toward the earth, and suddenly he shoved it into the ground. Wherever the sword touched in the earth, EVERYTHING became green and full of life. Flowers that never bloomed before began to bloom. Life had emerged where there had been none. The look was majestically spectacular!

THE CHURCH WILL BE REFORMED

Then, the angel spoke very clearly into the atmosphere. I began to understand the sound. He began to state his unique purpose here in the below. “The Church will be reformed. It’s going into reform school-mode. The Presbyterian Church is going to have a visitation. Many in the Catholic Church will begin to cry out ‘No, no, we want the ways of the Word.’ Yes, these two denominations will begin to start a movement. I have been assigned to do my part,” said the angel. This time the angel was looking at me as he spoke. I began to tremble.

Then, I had another vision. I began to see leadership from all different denominations begin to come together and cry out for our Maker, Almighty. They said, “Almighty come teach us Your ways. For they are better than ours” (see Isaiah 55:8-9).

Still, enraptured by the vision that was being played out before me, I began to weep, “Could this possibly happen, Your Majesty?” I asked. “Is this real God? Will there really be a coming together? Will we cry out together?”

I could feel the tears coming down my face, red-hot tears. The angel moved. He had heard my cry. I could still feel him lingering. Suddenly, oh so suddenly, that presence that I love, the Holy Spirit, began to touch my back. I became very still and Holy Spirit, the Divine One of God, began to speak to me. By this time, I was undone by what I had just seen.

CALL UPON MY NAME!

Holy Spirit said, “Theresa, write this clearly: tell the people the revival they long for will be a reformation of what was, what is, and what is yet to come. I am paying a visit to denominational hierarchies, and there will be a shift.”

“There will be a crying aloud and sparing not (Isaiah 58:1). There will be a driving out of the demons out of our Father’s house (Mark 1:39). There will be altar calls for the Church to return to their first love (Revelation 2:4). There will be children once again turning to the house of the Lord and finding joy.

“For the end is not yet. I’ve told you this before. Now go tell My people to call upon My name (Jesus) while I am near (Isaiah 55:6). I have sent help. His name is Reformer; he has been sent by Me and will come and strike the earth within the next six months, and the Church will begin to cry out together and families will turn toward Me. I am bringing fresh holy conviction to rescue My people.

“I am looking for people to stand in the gap like Moses, Daniel and Joseph. I will find them. There will be a release of many held captive around the world for My sake. I will take captive the enemies of the Cross. For many enemies will appear as if they have lost their minds, and yet the end is not so.”

MANIFEST ME

For this reason, God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11). “Can You see this already beginning?” I was asked.

He continued to speak, “I’m asking you to tell them that I’m giving the Church fresh opportunity. Remember the earth is groaning and longing for the manifestation of our Father’s sons. MANIFEST ME,” says the Lord (Romans 8:19)!

“Now I say to you, there shall be a sign in the heavens; it will be called “Thundersnow” and My voice will be recognized, and you shall be assigned to My people, and say I am on the move,” says the Lord.

May God Bless us all as we obey the Lord’s command. I shall go forth and declare this Reformation OF THE CHURCH! Send that angel, Lord. Send him. Amen.

‘Wildfire’ baptism

Thank to UK Prophetic Words for this, reminding me of a word given to me during a visit to Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship – so what’s the Lord telling us through this?

THE ANGEL OF WILDFIRE BAPTISM

We had Duncan & Kate Smith, and Carol Arnott from Catch the Fire Ministries at our local Church with us for the weekend and on Saturday morning I had the following experience. I saw (in the physical) a man in the room, stood for around an hour with his eyes closed but gazing up in the direction of Heaven. I love to know what is going on in the Spirit and so I asked God if He would show me what was going on.

Immediately I got the sense of a MASSIVE Angel, maybe 15ft high standing directly before him with its arms out, surrounding him, protecting him and shielding him from everything going on around him in the room. In the very centre of the Angel’s arms was a Big Shower which was giving this man a 5-fold Baptism of Water, Spirit, Fire, Light and Glory. The man was being washed clean of everything that ever afflicted him and revived to be sent out into the World for God’s purposes.

I began drawing this and then Carol Arnott went up and began speaking about the Angel of Wildfire Baptism she has seen in her house. I believe this was the Angel I was seeing there in the room with us!

Big Ben chimes and a vision of holy Zion

At the close of a message on the power of holy communion by Bill Johnson’s wife Beni, I whispered to my neighbour at Revival Alliance gathering that in 2012 Beni prophesied about bells for the Queen’s jubilee (The Especial Significance of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Bells).

“It Is Time!”

No sooner had I said so than Beni referred to it and that, as Big Ben’s being upgraded, so too is Britain getting an upgrade! (Note Tony Puccio’s vision last March of the tower arising from the ground.)

Prior to that, the hour of last Friday’s post-lunch worship was powerfully awesome and Beni claims to have seen angels moving into a Parliamentary meeting!  If that’s so then it will be interesting to know the outcome in due course.

Afterwards a Romanian couple Geani and Madalina Baiceanu, with whom we’d become firm friends from the first night, told us Beni’s reference to Big Ben reminded him of a prophetic vision related to it. I’m grateful to Geani for permission to quote his account, which Madalina has since sent me:

‘On 24th March 2017 during the 24 hour prayer meeting at our church, while praying Geani had a vision where he first heard a bell chiming and then he saw mount Zion.

‘He saw sound waves coming down from the top of Zion towards the bottom of the mountain. The sound waves were traveling like light and he could see from above trees and stones and from between the stones he saw dry bones getting covered with flesh and coming alive and forming live people. The people started shining and the light radiated from them as they came alive (and it) was chasing the darkness away.

‘He then heard God’s voice saying:

“The bell rang. It’s time to rise up. You are my children. Rise up! 

“It’s time to shine like the stars in the sky. Say My Word to be heard! 

“Bring the worship to me. If you will not worship me, the stones will do it. 

“Come out from the world and I will be with you now and forever.”

After Geani mentioned it we had a brief chat and in view of his reaction to what Beni had said I thought his vision’s related to Big Ben. Madalina confirms more details:

‘Yes, the connection was with what Beni Johnson said and that the chiming was the sound of Big Ben’s chiming.

‘The mount Geani saw was very beautiful, a beauty he never saw in the natural and he knew internally that such beauty can only represent Zion.

‘Regarding the time, he knew there’s an urgency as in being about to happen because of the voice he heard. The voice was like a thunder but didn’t see a specific time.’

Vision of Christian warriors, more on the angel’s message and a ‘wake up’ call

Final day at 9.00am and keen to be with new friends in His presence

After having been away it’s intriguing to compare our spiritual impressions with others who’ve heard from the Lord. After the first evening at Revival Alliance UK 2017 at least thrice-daily ardent worship started cleansing the New Bingley Hall in Birmingham.

Upon entering the auditorium it felt exactly like on my recent visits to Capstone Church, Ilford (extra meetings continue this month). And the sense there was just like when we travelled to Folleys’ End Church in Croydon’s Surrey Street market some years ago. On the opening evening of a weekend-long gathering there a ‘rock’n’roll’ guitarist opened up worship with extraordinary musicianship – after that song he addressed an unvoiced question I’d had!  As worship proceeded, Holy Spirit’s presence could be sensed and so it was just like when we’d been in the sanctuary at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship.

We were where Jesus Christ attends church!

SO, this time with Revival Alliance we were back in Toronto and the outpouring of God’s blessings once again. Many received a good measure of healings, including ‘D’, who’d sat beside us that first evening. Later, she responded to a word of knowledge Carol Arnott had from the Lord about someone having too many platelets in their blood. On going forward, ‘D’ said the problem’s caused her a great deal of pain but God has given her a promise in her own year of jubilee – and she’s 50 years of age. She soon began feeling the warmth of God’s power to bring freedom from pain.

NINA’S VISION OF WARRIORS

The next day we were unable to find ‘D’ until we saw her coming towards the building as we left for the lunch break. She told us how well she’s now feeling. We grinned and then I noticed Nina had gone silent, beyond conversational listening, and gazing very intently – but not at our friend, at everyone!  Is she alright?

“Everyone’s changed,” she says a minute or so later. “We’re wearing armour and ready for combat!”

I ask her what’s happening and she explains her sight did a sort of shimmer, or rather our bodies did. So I ask, “Like watching people going through the Stargate (movie)?”

“Yes”, replies Nina, and so we realise her natural and spiritual senses of sight became active to show another – truer – reality of believers in Christ as spiritual warriors. It looks as if it would be heavy and cumbersome armour but it’s light and supple, being spiritual.

The images are akin to when Nina attended the funeral of an atheist friend’s husband only to be shocked to ‘see’ people walking around as skeletons!  They’re the walking dead because unbelievers are dead to God. But believers are not only clothed in Christ but also in holy armour for fighting satan’s servants.

With that vision in mind let’s read Chris Bennett’s Facebook entries about the army of the Lord after having the vision of an angel warning him the Lord’s drawn a Line In The Sand (3rd Sept), which I didn’t read until yesterday (emphases mine):

THERE IS ANOTHER LINE IN THE SAND (4th Sept)

Yesterday, I wrote about a line in the sand as the Lord applies it to us, but He also gave me an interpretation of it as applied to the forces of evil. I wrote that interpretation to a dear friend and the effect was such that I am prompted to share it wider.

I wrote : “I felt the Lord say over you, “So far but no further. I will only allow so much to attack you, then – no more! I am limiting the enemy’s ability to harass you. I am setting my army around you. You are mine and I will protect and preserve you. I have plans for you that are as yet unfulfilled. So I rebuke the enemy. Thus far – not one step further!”

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

I feel a move in the Spirit. I feel the enemy is being dragged back from the worst excesses he was planning. The Lord is rebuilding His church just as Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. He is restoring hope where the world has been openly mocking us. He is restoring faith where faith has been shredded and all but destroyed. He is sounding a rallying cry to every Christian who will respond.

“TO ARMS! EVERYONE TO HIS OR HER POST. LET THE TRUMPETS HERALD A GATHERING OF THE SAINTS IN A WAR-ROOM TO PROCLAIM AND DECREE THE GREATNESS OF THE LORD AND TO DECLARE FRESH HOPE FOR ALL MANKIND! IT IS TIME TO CALL A COUNCIL OF WAR IN EVERY CHURCH, EVERY TOWN AND VILLAGE. IT IS TIME FOR THE WATCHMEN TO WATCH AND STAND GUARD, FOR THE INTERCESSORS TO INTERCEDE DECLARE AND DECREE THE LORD’S WILL BE DONE, AND THE PROPHETS TO LEAD AS THEY HEAR AND SPEAK AND ACTIVATE THE WORDS OF THE LORD!”

“DO NOT SAY ITS NOT MY JOB! IT IS EVERYONE’S JOB. LET THE WORSHIPPERS LEAD YOU INTO BATTLE FOR THE BATTLE IS THE LORD’S AND THE ENEMY’S WALLS WILL COME TUMBLING DOWN!”

I looked to the hills around us. The horsemen and chariots of Israel are in position. The Army of the Lord is ready. The trumpeters are standing, trumpets raised, ready for the command. The Lord stands to His feet and His voice rings out over us, “NOW IS THE TIME. LET BATTLE COMMENCE!” The enemy forces rise in unison with the Soldiers of the Cross. I see the Ark of the Covenant, carried by the priests, take up position ready to lead the worshippers into battle. Then . . . the battle cry is sounded.

Are you ready? Is the Army of the Lord, on earth as it is in heaven, ready? Then let us wage war on Satan and all his demon army. We cannot be defeated, the battle is already won! AMEN.

WAKE UP! (2nd Sept)

“Before you set about trying to get the Church right with Me – get yourself right with Me.” says the Lord. These words hit me like a brick as I was browsing Facebook today.

“Mote and plank! Cast the plank out of your own eye before you try to point out the mote in another’s eye!”, He continued. “My Word speaks about a spotless Bride, and so she shall be, but to be part of a spotless Bride, you must be personally ‘spotless’ or how can I use you to clean up the Bride?

“This is one of the last calls to personal holiness!”, says the Lord, “For in the coming months I will be ‘cleaning house’ in My Church. I will be ‘cleaning house’ among those I have appointed and anointed and many will lose their influence and some their platform because they have abused the anointing and have turned aside from the path upon which I set them!

“Why ‘one of the last calls’? Because I am raising a new Holy Army among My people, and these shall be anointed to carry the Church through the End-time. If My people will align themselves with Me and with the path upon which I have set them, then I shall add to their anointing, confirmed with signs and wonders following, and the world will recognise them as Mine.

“However”, says the Lord, “There will be two countermeasures the enemy, Satan, has set up ready to combat My people. First, he will counterfeit everything My people do, and you must discern the difference. Second, he will attack, harass, persecute, and try to bring down My anointed in any way he can, and you must stand in the face of this. Only by keeping themselves pure and unto Me shall My people stand and remain standing” says the Lord of Hosts.

A ‘wake up’ warning to a still complacent church.

Angelic warning: not all ‘Christians’ will enter the kingdom of heaven!!

Credit: Prophetic Art of James Nesbit (tap for link)

This account by Chris Bennett strongly reinforces the scripture quoted in my warning in Synod sides with satan to apostates within the Church of England and other churches (emphases mine):

AN ANGELIC VISITATION WITH AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR THE CHURCH

“So far – no further!” I heard the cry. It was repeated, “So far – no further!” I looked around and I saw him. An angel with sword drawn standing behind a line he had drawn in the sand.

“Tell God’s people, a line has been drawn in the sand this day. It is time for the shaking to begin in the Church. It is time for the people of God to stand up and be counted. The Lord has drawn a line in the sand and those who continue to deny Him shall be left behind.”

“What do you mean?” I asked him, “There are so many ways to deny the Lord. Please be specific.”

“Those who talk a good talk but whose walk falls short of their talk!” he replied. “Those who persistently and knowingly sin with no sign of repentance. Those who knowingly condemn others for doing what they themselves have never stopped doing. Those with a strong religious spirit who continually call others to repentance yet who continue to sin themselves.”

“What is their fate?” I asked.

“They shall hear those dreadful words, “Away from Me. I never knew you!” They will protest but in vain. Their fate will be sealed!”

My mind went to scripture, Matthew 7:21-23

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”

I turned to the angel again and he said,

“It’s all there in God’s Word. The warning has always been there, but so many have either ignored it or they have not believed it. The Lord is a just God. He is merciful too when His people listen to His Word, and when they obey Him. He loves every single one but not every single one has even thought about His will, rather than their own. This is why there has to be a line in the sand. Thus far – no further!”

The vision faded – warning given and received.

An invitation to enter the doorway of divine destiny

Espied this afternoon on Ignite Ireland Ministry’s Facebook .:

Ladies of Gold detail

‘He reveals the deep and secret things: He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells in Him!’ (Amplified Bible: inserted RB)

“AN INVITATION TO ENTER IN THROUGH THE DOORWAY OF DIVINE DESTINY”

‘Time to take hold of DANIEL 2:22’…!

GET READY, THIS MORNING WHILE WORSHIPING THE LORD, I WAS SUDDENLY CAUGHT UP IN THE SPIRIT WHERE I SAW A GREATER REALM WITH A DEEPER DIMENSION OF DIVINE REVELATION BEING OPENED UP TO THE BODY OF CHRIST. NOW I SAW THAT ONLY THOSE WHO ARE WAITING, PRESSING AND PURSUING HIS PRESENCE WILL RECEIVE ACCESS TO THIS PLACE OF SECRET AND DIVINE MYSTERIES, ONLY THE WILLING AND THE FULLY SURRENDERED WILL HAVE THEIR EYES, MINDS AND HEARTS FULLY ENLIGHTENED AND ILLUMINATED TO THIS NEW LEVEL OF HIDDEN TREASURES THAT HAVE BEEN CONCEALED AND PROTECTED UNTIL NOW, FOR THERE IS A NEW KINGDOM AGE BEING BIRTHED UPON THE EARTH.

THEN I SAW IN THE SPIRIT WHAT LOOKED LIKE A HEAVY GOLDEN DOOR THAT WAS BEING PROTECTED BY TWO MIGHTY ARCHANGELS OF THE LORD, THESE TWO MIGHTY BEINGS HELD A LARGE SWORD IN ONE HAND AND A SET OF KEYS IN THE OTHER HAND.

NOW AS I DREW CLOSER IN THIS ENCOUNTER I NOTICED THAT DEEPLY ENGRAVED UPON THE GOLDEN DOOR WERE THE NUMBERS (222), AS I PRESSED IN A LITTLE CLOSER SUDDENLY I HEARD THESE WORDS, “FEAR NOT, COME, DRAW NEARER TAKE THE KEYS AND ENTER IN FOR THIS IS THE DOORWAY OF DIVINE DESTINY”, SO I STEPPED A LITTLE CLOSER TO THE GOLDEN DOOR AND AS I APPROACHED THE DOORWAY THE ANGEL OF THE LORD HELD OUT TO ME THE KEYS THAT WERE IN HIS HAND, AS I TOOK HOLD OF THE KEYS SUDDENLY IT WAS QUICKENED TO BY THE WAY OF THE SPIRIT, (Daniel 2:22, which says, “He reveals deep and mysterious things and knows what lies hidden in darkness, though he is surrounded by light”).

Then suddenly the Encounter ended..!

FRIENDS THERE IS A INVITATION BEING RELEASED TO THE BODY OF CHRIST TO DRAW CLOSER, TO COME NEARER, TO PRESS IN DEEPER AND TO TAKE HOLD OF THE KEYS THAT ARE BEING MADE AVAILABLE TO US IN THIS HOUR THAT WE MAY BOLDLY ENTER IN THROUGH THE DOORWAY OF DIVINE DESTINY WHERE WE CAN ACCESS A GREATER MEASURE AND A DEEPER DIMENSION OF HEAVENLY REVELATION FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.

A vision over this new nation

In view of its importance, as well as confirming other visions, please see this posting from Yinka Oyekan’s facebook via UK Prophetic Words received today :

A Vision Over the Nation

As I drove into Liverpool to preach at Frontline the Lord gave me this revelation:….

“Have you not understood it is time for harvest and so I have placed Theresa in a position of prominence, her name means harvester and she will, for a time of reaping is at hand. It is my will and good pleasure to bless this land and so, get ready to reap. I am releasing an army of evangelists in the United Kingdom; can’t you see it? I will sweep though this land”.

I saw Liverpool rising from the ashes looking like a bride adorned. And I heard the Lord say, Continue reading

Prophetic word from Oz: Angel of Awakening in the USA

This from Lana Vawser of the Australian Prophetic Council follows a recent one, The Heart Of The USA Is Groaning. Today’s ‘update’ aptly follows my previous post of our Father telling Patsy Southway, “My heart is global” and begins:

LanaVawser‘This morning I had a vision where I saw a HUGE angel, he stood so tall and so wide and I saw him leave the throne room of heaven on the Lord’s command and head towards the earth. I saw this angel come towards the nation of the United States of America. As I watched I saw it land with one of its feet on the West Coast and the other foot on the East Coast.

‘When it landed, between the span of his legs and his wings the entire nation of the United States was covered. Instantly I felt the atmosphere get thick and heavy in the most glorious way, the presence of God was so tangible…’

Lana Vawser: coals of fire are being released for prophets

WOW! This word confirms and thus speaks directly into a dream of 11 days ago whilst attending the Awake conference (and which plugged into the podcast on Time). ALSO, for some reason this word was missing from my email notifications, although the next (Angels of Recovery) was in today’s in-tray! It was found by looking in my WordPress’ Reader folder, which I don’t always check upon blogging as I usually go straight to its admin desktop.

COALS OF FIRE ARE BEING RELEASED ON THE PROPHETS, PROPHETIC VOICES AND PROPHETIC MINISTRIES

LanaVawserThis morning during worship I saw angels descending from heaven and they were holding burning coals of fire in their hands.

I saw them going throughout the earth and they were releasing these coals of fire, the fire of God upon the hearts of prophets and those operating in the gift of prophecy.

As these coals were being released into the hearts of these ones, the fire felt hot, seven times hotter than what they had experienced before and I noticed as the coals of fire were burning in their hearts, their hearts were EXPLODING. They were exploding with the fire of His love, they were burning for Him in ways they hadn’t before as they wholeheartedly embraced the fire.

It was bringing a DEEP purging, a DEEP purifying, a DEEP refining, a DEEP pruning and a DEEP igniting.

As these coals of fire were burning in the hearts of the prophets and prophetic voices I saw something SO beautiful! I saw IN THE FIRE, the hearts of prophets and prophetic voices that had said YES to Him embracing the fire, a DEEPER level of the ‘knitting together’ of their hearts with the heart of God.

An explosion of revelation of the goodness, kindness and beauty of Jesus, the fire of His perfect love being awakened in their hearts. (Hebrews 12:29) In the midst of the fire that was burning I saw a compass that was on fire in their hearts, and the Lord was bringing an alignment and recalibration of hearts to ALIGN in REVELATION with the TRUE NATURE OF GOD and His love.

As permission was given to the Lord in the embracing of the fire, He was burning away religious spirits, areas of wrong views of Him and His nature that had taken root and were flavouring the prophetic words, messages of His heart in wrong ways. It was being burnt away to release a pure flow, a pure revelation of HIS BURNING LOVE!!!!

As the fire of God was working DEEP in the hearts of the prophets and prophetic voices, I saw their lips and mouths ON FIRE!

The Lord was bringing a greater cleansing of any ‘mixture’ in prophetic words released.

The Lord was releasing a GREATER PURITY in the flow of prophetic messages released even though we only see in part.

There is an accuracy and purity being imparted into the hearts of the prophets and prophetic voices AS they embrace the fire, that is releasing a greater level of clarity, accuracy and a deeper entering into the insight like the sons of Issachar – knowing the times and seasons. (1 Chronicles 12:32)

fire-of-Holy-Spirit-300x194As the prophets and prophetic voices were embracing the fire and being refined in heart to be more like Him, the prophetic flow in their life being sharpened and purged, they were arising burning with love for Him like never before and then SUDDENLY platforms of greater favour and responsibility opened up.

I saw many prophets being raised up into new levels of sight to declare and prophesy over cities, nations and people groups with greater clarity, accuracy and love.

There is GREAT FIRE on the prophets, prophetic voices and prophetic movements right now and it is bringing a shaking. As our YES is given to the Lord we are moving out in greater love, accuracy and burning for Him. He doesn’t want us to resist the fire, He wants us to embrace it. It is FOR OUR GOOD and the good of the Church and the world.
If the fire is not embraced, I saw ‘another time around the mountain’ happening, until the Lord can accomplish the purging, purifying work that He wants to do now, to release us into greater levels of accuracy and prophesying OUT OF HIS HEART OF LOVE AND GOODNESS, as true prophecy REVEALS who He is in His love and goodness and greater doors of favour opened so the burning passion of His love may spread across the entire earth.

The Lord is wanting to bring a restoration, purifying and increase to the prophetic across the earth. As we say YES to the fire we are moving into levels of insight, accuracy and revelation of His heart, His ways and plans like we have not ever dreamed of.

Footnote (RB): this has a bearing upon an unusual dream I had from which I awoke feeling as though an interior volcano was about to erupt in my spirit. Later, in the second session of that day’s C.I.Europe conference, Jane Hamon spoke about the power of praying in tongues for awakening and releasing the force of the Kingdom. As we did that for at least two minutes I was blessed to feel that unseen fiery volcano bubbling within and getting ready to explode. Hence my picking up on last weekend’s references to holy fire.

Messages from one who stands in The Almighty’s Presence

(Originally published on this blog on 23rd January 2014 and now re-published in view of the increasing expectation lately among Jews of the appearance of their Messiah.)

Angel Gabriel’s introduction of himself is familiar from Christmas scriptures. Yet I propose to connect his messages with the concept of prophesying into Time, especially about the Holy Spirit – and with an intriguing prophecy for Jewish people today.

Angelic Announcements

This post’s title is from Gabriel’s response to an elderly Jewish priest’s disbelief, to which I refer below. Several months later Gabriel was sent to a betrothed teenager, as depicted in 1898 by Henry Ossawa Tanner in Annunciation (click image for gallery).

The maiden’s visitor greeted her,

“Rejoice, highly favoured one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

It wasn’t so much the surprise of an invisible spirit becoming visible that troubled her, as what he’d said and how it was said. But this messenger then reassured her,

“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

Although not disbelieving what he’d said, the young lady posed a logical question because she was a virgin, “How can this be since I know not any man?” So Gabriel explained,

“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.”

At this Mary responded laudably, “Behold the maid-servant of the Lord. Let it be according to your word”.

How different was the young maid’s acceptance of this decree about her own future to that of the very much older priest Zacharias when Gabriel had visited him a few months earlier. Apparently, Mary hadn’t heard about what had happened. Otherwise, there would have been no need for Gabriel to have confided the news of that first miraculous conception.

So what went wrong for her cousin’s husband?

Zacharias had the once-in-a-lifetime privilege of burning incense in the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. In view of its performance being in the Holiest of Holies, this duty was done by drawing lots rather than by a rota from many teams of priests.

Whilst Zacharias was officiating, an invisible, supra-natural spirit subtly scintillated at the side of the altar. It proved to be a holy messenger – an archangel, so some believe. He brought news of the future mission of a mightily powerful man of God – the priest’s own son!  But Zacharias and his wife Elizabeth were childless for she was well past child-bearing age!

However, their prayers for a baby were to be answered and the angel prophesied this special one would be filled with God’s Holy Spirit from before his birth!  It isn’t any wonder the priest was in disbelief! When he asked, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years” , the angel’s response was most emphatic,

“I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time.” (emphasis added) 

If you’re unfamiliar with physician Luke’s investigation into those encounters with Gabriel and what happened when the two cousins met, and to Zacharias too, I’d recommend reading his full account here, by courtesy of BibleGateway.com.

Points to Ponder

Those accounts are particularly interesting in connection with speaking into the future, as summarised in Prophesy TO 2014 and Talking to Time seems to work!

Prophesying is speaking forth the mind and counsel of the Lord God, as communicated to an individual. Therefore, it’s a declaration that cannot be known by natural means – a direct revelation from God. [For more see An Introduction to Prophecy.]

Now let’s check Gabriel’s announcements in the light of John Kilpatrick’s message of the first Sunday in 2104, as outlined in my recent posts (ie January 2014):

1.  In that last quotation, Gabriel issued a decree that happened immediately but which had a limited duration. That is, he spoke into Time by prophesying, did he not? Right away the priest became dumb until he was released from the decree’s power when the baby came to be named months later.

My underscoring of “my words…will be fulfilled in their own time” indicates New Testament support for ‘talking into Time’. Gabriel’s words brought from God were not only welcome news but also, and far more importantly, announcements on earth of declarations that had been issued in heaven. They’re excellent examples of oral statements of God’s will and are thus prophetic and creative, in we can understand from the Word of the Lord given to prophet Isaiah (Isa 55:11 – emphasis mine):

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Thus, what God speaks not only through His holy prophets but also through His angelic spirits who minister to His people, as well as through His Son, is sure to happen sooner or later.

2. From the principles of Genesis 1 the power of divine and human speech is creative, . The presence of Holy Spirit is necessary to bring about a divinely created manifestation. A Hebrew understanding of ‘over’, or ‘hovering’, in Genesis 1:2 is that Holy Spirit was next to or immediately adjoining what was about to be acted upon – all that was required to start the process was a spoken word.

Therefore, when Gabriel spoke to Zacharias the combined action of his words and the Holy Spirit fully rejuvenated his wife’s body. She was no longer barren but could carry and bring a child to birth normally. And even in her womb Holy Spirit was present to make baby John respond to the sound of Jesus’ mother’s voice!! (Luke 1:39-41)

The same happened when Gabriel spoke to Mary. The ‘overshadowing’ power of the Most High that he referred to carries the same meaning as that of ‘hovering’ in Genesis. Being of the Holy Spirit, the same creative power that was ‘In the Beginning’ brought about an ‘immaculate’ conception after the angel’s prophetic announcement. That is, it would not happen until a decree, a spoken announcement, had been delivered and received. Once again Gabriel had spoken into Time – into the next nine months!

3. The creative application of Gabriel’s prophetic description of Jesus’ kingship and its relevance to a possible prophecy given to the late rabbi Kaduri warrants consideration in another post. Read about him meanwhile in Who are the Jewish people expecting?
