Fulfilled prophecies #10 & #13: a 6th time! – corruption in and fall of the EU

It’s time to remind ourselves of a couple of prophetic words of the many on the EU and Brexit and realise they continue to show the Lord’s hand at work in their fulfillment.

First, the awesome warning David Noakes delivered in November 2015 urging us to leave the EU (see UK/EU in/out #4). I’ve emphasised the more pertinent phrases:

“Nation of Britain, I have loved you with a love which has not ceased, despite the state of apostasy and degradation into which you have fallen. My anger towards those church leaders who have taught false things in my Name, and encouraged others to believe and act as they do, is intense and my judgment upon them will be severe. Yet I have compassion upon those who have been like sheep without godly shepherds; and my heart still longs to exercise mercy upon a nation whose forefathers upheld my Name and took my Word to the ends of the earth; a nation whose belief in the truth of my Word framed godly laws and inspired a culture of uprightness.

“Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

“Hear Me, O once godly nation and respond to my call, or you also will come to ruin in that same judgment of destruction. This is not my will for you, but you must choose the course which you will take. I urge you to respond to Me and choose life under my hand of discipline and protection, rather than death in the disaster which is even now coming upon Europe.”

Then in May 2016 in mulling over events I asked Is The Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? First UK, then USA – next EU??  It proved to be a ‘semi-conscious’ prophecy.

Both words quickly came into play, as in Fulfilled Prophecies #13 and #10 respectively – and more soon manifested (here, here and here). We now have yet another fulfillment – the 6th!!

Readers interested in Brexit may have kept abreast of developments regularly reported on Jonathan Ely’s excellent Facebook resource, Why Leave EU? There you’ll have noticed Poland’s objections to EU judicial reforms (Tusk threatens to kick Poland out of EU) and that Spain closes its border with Africa because the EU’s failure to stem the mass influx of migrants.  Also, Poland and Hungary form new eastern bloc ‘in bid to OVERTHROW Brussels‘ and professor Martin Goodwin claims President of European Commission ‘Junker is deeply worried’ Brussels is crumbling and EU is panicking.

And today’s Telegraph banner headline emblazoned across its wide front-page reads (tap/click for link), EU chiefs in expenses scandal.

The broadsheet’s inside double-page spread ‘How the EU tried to hide £500,000 bill for two months’ travel’ asks how much did each of the 28 Commissioners spend on travel? Deputy political editor Steve Swinford’s report opens by referring to an executive director of Access Info Europe’s attempt to show journalists from Eastern Europe and the Balkans about the availability of EU information,

‘When campaigners first asked the European Commission for details about the travel expense claims of the 28 commissioners in May 2014, they thought it would be a straightforward matter. “They told me (Helen Darbishire) they couldn’t give me the information because it was a question of privacy and cost. I was totally shocked”.

‘Three years and more than 190 requests for information later, the EU has finally relented and agreed to publish the data – two months worth from 2016…’

That’s just relating to travel over a short period – what about other expenses at other times? Also, it’s failed to produce properly audited accounts for far too many years – [PS: ‘the European Court of Auditors have refused to sign off the bloc’s accounts for over 20 years due to continued “material level of irregularity”!‘ – Asa Bennett.]

This new exposure is absolutely no surprise in view of the EU’s lack of accountability to the people it purports to represent – which is one reason why sensible Britons voted to get out!

I cannot but conclude this exposure is a part of the Lord’s judgement against the EU.

Sex-Synod & Parliamentarians in Jesus’ and St Paul’s End-times prophecies – #2

The Ark Encounter, Ken Ham Facebook – click/tap for link

Continuing from #1 – for ease of reference, the prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – that Day (of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’

Re-reading that scripture upon learning of July’s Sex-Synod shenanigans something struck me from each its verses, namely:

  1. the CofE is in full-blown apostasy and thus will get at best a full-blown shaking down or, at worst, a deepening schism between orthodox and permissive clergy!
  2. someone will soon be on the world scene and manifest the antichrist spirit as ‘the son of perdition’, but is satan using the current situation as a ‘trial-run’ of what’s foretold by using ‘unwitting’ secular leaders as its mouthpiece??

Important to note that I’m NOT saying those people are demonic or demon-possessed. Disciples of Christ are only too aware of the nature of the spiritual battle being waged worldwide for everyone’s spirit, souls and minds – it’s influencing almost every aspect of our lives. The not-yet saved are thereby highly vulnerable and susceptible to satanic deceptions and all too easily fall prey to the enemy of our souls. It wants nothing less than our destruction, spiritual enslavement and eventual incarceration in hell.

PARLIAMENTARY IMPLICATIONS

In tandem with the General Synod’s formal declaration on banning Conversion Therapy, we see humanistic notions of equality, diversity,  rights and sexuality permeating ‘progressive liberal’ goals. John Bercow, long-standing LGBT activist and the Speaker of the House Commons, addressed Pink News at a reception in Parliament. Although speaking in an unofficial capacity, in view of that Parliamentary position his opinion may be deemed as being an ‘ex-officio’ statement. Premier quotes him as saying,

“We are marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.

“There’s always a balance to be struck – we don’t want to behave as though it’s all over, that everything has been done. Nothing remains – because that isn’t true.

“I still feel that we can only really have equal marriage when you can b***** well get married in a church if you want to do so.”

‘When the law changed in 2013, churches were offered a protection that they wouldn’t be forced to host gay marriages in their building.” 

[Pink News reports: “‘I suppose in marriage terms there will only really be complete legal equality when it is permissible for a gay couple to marry as a matter of right in a church.” Referring to the Church of England’s clause, he added: “I always felt it was a pity when the same-sex marriage legislation went through that as a way of accommodating some of the church interests there was that compromise which detracted a little bit from the concept of complete equality”.’]

Blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ takes on the case of Justine vs Justin: the ‘not yet’ and ‘never’ of same-sex marriage in the Church of England – his report merits reading in full but here’s its first paragraphs (emphases mine) – note the ‘sacred cow’ of ‘equality’:

Believers take a stand. Call for CofE reforms explodes

A fascinating fact in this latest of Gavin Ashenden’s ‘over the Pond’ chats is that the Church Times wouldn’t refer to him for years because of his orthodox stance. BUT in view of over a thousand more signatures from clergy and laity appended to the letter to the Telegraph, it recognizes a movement is starting and quickly published two reports:

Sex-Synod & Parliamentarians in Jesus’ and St Paul’s End-times prophecies – #1

14/85 sex-related questions: NONE on the Persecuted Church! Credit: Cranmer

We stay on the current topic to:
  • expand upon previous posts on apostasy
  • consider its direct relevance to the UK Parliament
  • examine two End-times prophecies and their context
  • review how satanic strategy is engineering a work-around.

I humbly submit this material as an outcome of the prophecy spoken over me soon after launching this blog, as at the close of Why Write/blog?  This is only the second time I’ve referred to that specific gifting and I offer this 2-part post for weighing by my brothers and sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ.:

THE DAY OF THE LORD

The issues are opened up in Synod Sides With satan – Risks Anglican Schism/Shaking and their import is outlined in re-published extract On The Great Apostasy & Deception; wherein I write about Apostle Paul’s letter informing the early church what’s destined to happen before The Day of The Lord and Jesus’ return to earth.

The prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’

The Bible’s first reference to ‘The Day of The Lord’ was uttered circa 585 BC by prophet Obadiah in connection with the vengeance God would bring upon the Edomites in view of their hatred for their distant relatives and in aiding the Babylonian attack against them and desecrating Jerusalem and taking the Jewish people into captivity. This word of the Lord is soon fulfilled in Edom’s disappearance. Obadiah’s scroll is the shortest in the OT but its closing verses prophesy Israel’s final triumph in not only returning home but also in its eschatalogical significance for ‘the day of the Lord’; a season of divine justice and judgement of ALL nations around Israel, viz:

‘For the day of the LORD upon all nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall return upon your own head. For as you drank on My holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually…and they shall be as though they had never existed.’ (Obadiah 15-16)

It’s important not to overlook the fact that in quoting Isaiah 61 as His ‘mission statement’ Jesus opened that synagogue scroll and quoted the first verse only, and then stopped (Luke 4:16-21). The Spirit of the Lord God was upon and anointed Him to preach the Good News, to heal the broken-hearted and bring release for those bound as though imprisoned. That was the purpose of His First Advent, but the subsequent verses allude to the anointing also continuing in His Second Advent, namely:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

ANGLICAN ‘SEX-SIN-NOD’

The above post offered my opinion that the apostate nature of July’s General Synod of the Church of England, especially the Archbishop of York’s actions, marked a tipping point of Anglican apostasy because of its authoritative role in that church’s legislative affairs. Also, it would engender schismatic action! Continue reading

Rebels? In church? Just who’s rebelling??

My friend and author of The Pursuit of Pleasure and Feasting on the Father, Revd William Smith, emailed me today in response to my last post’s reference to Gavin Ashenden leading a group of ‘rebel Anglicans’. I have Bill’s kind permission to publish his reaction:

Dear Richard,

REBELS?

Grace, mercy and peace to you both in our Beloved Saviour and King.

Following on from yesterdays “Watch” with the Gavin Ashenden article, I believe we have the wrong emphasis on this. (ie. in Christian Today article).

Gavin, GAFCON, and the open letter to York, are in no way rebellious. These precious faithful ones are simply that, faithful ones.

The rebels are all those who have abandoned biblical teaching in favour of contemporary ideas and unrighteous ways. It is Lambeth Palace, the Synod (in general), the supporters of “Pride” etc, who have left the truth and are in rebellion against God and His revealed ways for human behaviour.

I have said this elsewhere and feel very strongly that we should be declaring this unashamedly and unapologetically.

The rebels are those who have turned from God, not those who are walking faithfully with Him.

There is a pressing need for Anglicanism, and much of the rest of ‘the church’ to be made aware of this. To recognise the truth of what I have here written and for there to be a turning in support of these faithful ones in rejection of the others. It is being portrayed wrongly making the “rebels” (the faithful) to be those destroying the so called unity of the church, while all the time they are upholding its faithful following of The Lord Jesus. (Rant over)

I do believe we urgently need to redress the prevailing attitude and see Truth restored, the bible honoured, celebrated and followed, rather than being shamed as divisive.

For your thoughts.

Much blessing and encouragement as this battle intensifies as biblical truth is so under threat from within.

In Victorious King Jesus, I bless you both.

POSTSCRIPT

It’s worth noting today’s newspaper item on the Roman Catholic Bishop of Shrewsbury, Rt Revd Mark Davies that Christians could be treated as extremists in being targeted by the Government’s new counter-extremism measures. He’s not the first to have expressed deep reservations over these plans. (Digital version not available)

Queen’s former chaplain leads rebel Anglican group threatening to split Church over sexuality issues

This re-blog and an Open Letter from a large PCC in the north that’s lost confidence in the Archbishop of York in ‘all things spiritual’ and thus requesting his repentance for what took place, are essential material in my coverage of the 2 Thess2:3 Apostasy.

On The Great Apostasy and Deception

This extract from a long piece blogged two years two weeks ago is reprinted as lead-in for the next post on how last week’s events in the Church of England and Parliament fulfill End-time prophecy of the soon return of Jesus Christ.

After writing about Humanism being the Forerunner of the Antichrist I looked at the spirit of Humanism’s offensive and its role in the Greece-EU crisis. A couple of letters to one of the first churches planted in Europe warn about its deceitful effects upon beliefs and values.:

EXTRACT from FUNDAMENTAL FLAW IN WESTERN SOCIETY…HUMANISM

APOSTASY and DECEPTION

The Book of Acts records that, whilst on a mission in Asia Minor, the apostle Paul was supernaturally called to visit Macedonia over in mainland Europe (Acts 16). In about 49 AD he arrived in the port of Philippi in northern Greece and planted a house church led by a business woman known as Lydia. From there he and his companion Silas went south to Salonika (Thessalonica), found the Jewish synagogue and preached there. A thriving church of devout Greeks and some Jews was established, but they helped Paul to escape from his violent opponents. Within a couple of years he wrote from Corinth two concise letters to those new believers to clarify points arising from his teaching.

One of those themes was upon the expected return of the Lord Jesus Christ and Paul’s second letter clarified the brief reference in the first, as follows (emphases added).

‘Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.’ (2 Thess 2 NKJV)

He proceeds at length to explain that the ‘mystery of lawlessness’ is already at work, but that someone who will be the very personification of evil will be revealed and come onto the world stage. Then the Lord will come from heaven and destroy him by the glory of His physical return to earth (2Thess 2:8)

Today – now – we’re well into that first stage, the ‘falling away’ from true faith in Jesus Christ, and which is also known as the ‘Great Apostasy’, as is so abundantly evident across the once-Christian Western world. (Eg. recent video clip on John Kilpatrick vision: ‘The United Apostates of America’.)  Paul proceeds,

‘The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

This means that those who fall away from the fullness of faith as originally taught by the Apostles, will become so unrighteous in God’s sight that they will be wide open to being deceived by Satan and his agents. They bring a distortion and twisting of the Gospel to accommodate people’s preferences and desires instead of obeying God’s commands.

It is clear this deception is the consequential result of not loving the truth, who is the very Word of God in the person of Jesus Christ, and thus not desiring Him and the salvation He bought them by dying in their stead on the cross.

The next verse is extremely ominous. Paul explains that, because their attitude remains deliberately ungodly, the Almighty is not only allowing them to be strongly deceived but is sending an irresistible delusion, the consequences of which will condemn them:

‘And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.’

By way of a careful caveat we need to note that a number of believers too readily quote verse 9 about some people through whom miracles, signs and wonders are displayed. As in my recent post on the accuser of the brethren attacking prophecies such self-appointed inquisitors claim all such demonstrations are deception. But upon reading and understanding the chapter in its entirety (as here) we find their claims to be rather judgemental.

Verse 12 gives the game away! Only those who despise the truth of the Gospel will be misled and suffer the consequences.

‘Cranmer’ clarifies on PM May ‘instructing’ C of E on marriage

Cranmer succinctly deals with the ‘fake news’ delirium by correctly quoting the source of such claims in Theresa May did not instruct C of E to allow gay marriage.:

‘…Do you see a ‘should’, a ‘must’ or an ‘ought’ in there regarding the future of gay marriage or blessing? “This has to be a matter for the Church,” the Prime Minister said. Could she have been any clearer? Has her position on this not been utterly consistent? “I strongly support equal marriage, and I know that these debates will continue, but it will have to be for the church as a whole to decide if it wants to make a change to its canon law,” she said only a few months ago. The church as a whole: Theresa May has absolutely no intention of forcing the Church of England to perform gay marriage (or blessing), and absolutely no desire to lecture it in the way it should go….’

SHAKING and RE-BUILDING the CHURCH in the UK

Thank you Lord and to Bill and UK Prophetic Words for this received yesterday because it confirms my thoughts on heresy and apostasy within the C of E. and thus encouraged publication of Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking. (NB. emphases and italicising mine).:

I AM GOING TO SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHURCH

I saw in my prayer time a vision; I saw a ruler, a plumb-line. As I contemplated this vision, thoughts and understanding came to me as to its meaning. I felt the Lord saying,

“Measure yourselves by my plumb-line. Align yourselves with my Word and my Spirit, for these two together are my plumb-line, these are my spirit-level.”

The traditional, institutional church and its recent decisions on same sex relationships had been on my mind.

I felt the Lord saying,

“Watch and see, as I do a rebuilding of my church. I am going to shake the foundations of the church in your land. The walls are going to rattle the floors will be shaken as I shake off, remove and level those and reject those who have rejected me. Those who have rejected my Word I reject. I am shaking the church out of compromise. The very foundations and structures of the church will be shaken. Many are choosing the broad path, the god of compromise. They have turned my glory into shame. How long will they love delusions? Rather than seek the truth.”

Many scriptures came to my mind, such as , “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision “. Many leaders, many of the institution of the ‘ church ‘ will have to choose between the path of compromise or the path of conflict. The path of complacency or the path of spiritual fervour. Whether to be loved by the world, or be hated by the world.

“Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you; because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY”…“My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me. Since you priests refuse to know me, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten the laws of your God.”

“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap”

I felt the Lord saying,

“This is not a time for rejoicing but a time for weeping and wailing. Look around you, many who call themselves by my name who claim to be my ‘church’ have made an alliance with satan . Their leaders have forgotten the God and Father of their fathers through whom I gave birth .They have spurned and rejected my word so I too spurn and reject them. Measure yourselves by my Word says the Lord; let it be the rule and the plumb-line. If it does not measure up then throw it out! The stones with which I built my house are built on the chief cornerstone, and on the foundation of prophets and apostles. These stones are crying out against those who have contaminated my house, as the contamination spreads the house will have to be torn down.’ The ‘church’, this institution make their decisions and their rules but did they consult me?

“Consider the future as you look at the past, how many of my ‘churches’ did not measure up, or remain ‘true’ as measured by my plumb-line?

“Many are following the traditions of men. Consider the ‘churches’ which are not my church. Are not many of them now lying derelict, have they not been turned into theatre halls, bars and restaurants? They craved after idolatry so I gave them over to their lusts and cravings. But my house will be called Holy! My true and accepted stones are not institutions but they are living stones, inscribed with ‘Holiness unto the Lord’; the filthy, the unregenerate, the sexually immoral, the idolaters will be rejected.

“For I will build my house with the plumb-line of my word and truth and by the Spirit of Holiness, my eternal word does not change.”

I hear the Lord say,

“You cry out for revival but I say cry out in repentance! My house will be called a house of prayer and yet it is through my intercessors and prayer warriors that my Spirit will bring revival through repentance and supplication.

“There is a rumbling, there is a shaking, there is change coming. You who crave revival, consider that with it comes a cost. It comes through sacrifice, with revival comes rejection by some of your peers. The religious among you will spurn you and say evil things about you.”

As I wrote these things down it was like writing a transcript as the thoughts flowed. I filtered the thoughts through my knowledge of scripture.

And I thought Lord, why do you give me the hard words? There are those who will reject this for they want the encouraging words, they want words to make them feel good. They want words of promise and edification. They want words of hope and joy.

And I remembered the scripture: “The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says the LORD of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, declares the LORD of hosts.’”

If the great awakening comes it must be marked out with repentance, changed lives that will put away immoral living who will seek Holiness and separation from the world. Let them come to us to find shelter under our care rather than the church going to the world to be friends. Be friends of sinners, but not friends with sinners. The sinner and the seeker will find love, joy and peace in an uncompromising message, an uncompromising Christ.

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.”

Bill Jennings, 18th July, 2017

The Daily Express reports General Synod:- “This runs completely counter to the Bible…the Christian guide book on sexuality, and Christian experience down the ages. “

Previous post refers. Thank you for this Gavin, and other incisive articles on the Synod. UPDATE: read his excellent, thorough rebuttal of Steve Chalk’s latest claims.

Gavin Ashenden

Article found here

“In Christian terms, reading the Bible, praying, going to confession, are all forms of ‘conversion therapy’.

“The arguments behind the motion have the effect of sending out the signal that the Church is happy to support the promotion or expression of same sex attraction as a priority for pastoral care; but that if anyone is struggling with a conflicted set of attractions, any move for help or support in the direction of heterosexual development is off limits and out of bounds.

“This runs completely counter to the Bible which is the Christian guide book on sexuality, and Christian experience down the ages.

“It turns the Church of England into a kind of secular religious body, keen to offer a little bit of superficial spirituality for those that way inclined, but giving up on the ambition to transform and free people up to live out the demanding ethics…

Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking

Jesus: “ALL authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.” [circa 33 AD, Matt 28: 18-20]

General Synod: “NO, not as it means keeping God’s word on sex and marriage! How dare we insult people with what You say and expect.” [July 2017 AD]

Thus begins the Great Apostasy foretold by the apostle to the Gentiles?

the Day of the Lord will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…(2Thess 2:3-4)

The great falling away from faith in Christ Jesus has been gaining momentum for years. However, decisions and official declarations by the Church of England’s recent General Synod, the tricameral deliberative and legislative gathering of bishops, clergy and laity, means we could now regard the Great Apostasy as being ‘officially’ under way.

In my humble opinion, this synod may be the pivotal point for the Anglican communion moving into open schism. (We pray Her Majesty, as head of CoE, doesn’t endorse that decision for it would go against the personal witness of her Christmas broadcasts.)

In scriptural terms, the seed sown by satan amongst that sown by Jesus for the global harvest of souls is flowering and so the distinction between that ‘darnel’ and wheat is clearly noticeable. (This Middle-Eastern weed is indistinguishable from real wheat until ripe.) The ‘aha!’ light-bulb moment of “THIS IS ALL ABOUT TO BE FULFILLED” that had exploded in my head in 2009 as I searched for that parable in Matthew 13, is now coming true! (Hence my blogging about End-times.)

So, satan’s stooges beware! Sincerely repent, renounce and denounce satan and all its works. Turn from your wicked ways because Jesus’ harvesting angels will soon gather and burn you like rubbish before gathering the wheat of righteous souls for safe storage in His ‘barn’.

Many, many other scriptures spring to mind on this fundamental issue, especially where Jesus clearly implies not all Christians will go to heaven! HUH!!  We can’t choose our preferred ‘broad’ way when He instructs us to,

“Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. How narrow is the gate and confined is the way that leads to life, and there are few that find it…

“Not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven.

“Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name?’

“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me you who practise lawlessness!’.”(Matthew 6:13-14 and 21-23)

There’s also the Apostles’ teachings, especially the revelation Paul received and told his protege Timothy:

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared by a hot iron…” (1Tim 4:1-2)

WHAT’S HAPPENED?

The preceding was drafted last Thursday but withheld as the word John Kilpatrick gave about The Shaking of earth and heavens took precedence. Developments have since confirmed the necessity of its publication, so I’ll now finish and publish together with a pertinent re-blog.

I was following events as monitored by Revd Dr Gavin Ashden, Christian Legal Centre CEO Andrea William’s contre-temps in the Synod with the Archbishop of York, as well as scathing material on their highly dubious aspects by politico-religious blogger Adrian Hilton and associates/readers at ‘Archbishop Cranmer’, viz:

** As well as the above post’s excellent insights, Gavin Ashenden writes in-depth on this matter in Sin At Synod – How The Church Forebad Forgiveness, and I will re-blog his coverage of a media report on the Synod next.

SOME REACTIONS

In deep disgust ‘Cranmer’ pens a satirical item over Synod’s endorsement of a motion that Conversion Therapy (aimed at altering sexual orientation) be banned. In fact, he disparagingly implies Synod should go the whole hog, or as in my above title support satan’s aims, and rewrites its formal announcement (providing link thereto).:

Church of England Votes to Ban Religious Conversion:  ‘The…General Synod has backed a motion calling for a ban on the practice of Religious Conversion, aimed at altering a person’s religious orientation.

‘Members of the Church’s national assembly, which is holding its annual July sessions in York, voted to endorse a Memorandum of Understanding on Religious Conversion, signed by The Christian ‘Truth is One’ School of Universal Reconciliation and others condemning the practice….

The full motion agreed was: That this Synod: (a) endorse the Memorandum of Understanding on Religious Conversion in the UK of November 2015, signed by The Christian ‘Truth is One’ School of Universal Reconciliation and others, that the practice of Religious Conversion has no place in the modern world, is unethical, potentially harmful and not supported by evidence; and 3 (b) call upon the Church to be sensitive to, and to listen to, contemporary and diverse expressions of religious identity; (c) and call on the government to ban the practice of religious proselytism.’

[Definition: Conversion of, or attempt to convert, (someone) from one religion, belief, or opinion to another – Advocacy or promotion (a belief or course of action).]

Christian Concern took exception to the events, reporting Archbishop of York rejects the authority of the Bible and the teaching of the Church.:

‘During General Synod, Andrea Williams [of ‘House of Laity’] proposed an amendment inserting the words “as revealed in the Bible and the taught by the church” to a motion calling for politicians to “prioritise the common good of all people.”

‘Andrea spoke on the need for the Bible to inform our understanding of the common good. She also proposed another amendment to the motion calling for the protection of life, the promotion of marriage and family and the maintaining of Christian freedoms.

‘Both amendments were rejected by Synod, with the Archbishop of York John Sentamu replying: “If you’re going to serve the whole community please don’t limit our language…The Word became flesh and sadly we are now making it Word, Word and Word again. Resist the amendments.”

PERSONAL MUSINGS:

In mulling over these issues from the possible perspective of the Lord calling the CofE out of its ‘Lazarus grave’ (see 2014 post), a revivified church would be very different to what it was like and living as a very sick, terminally ill entity. This Synod could be part of what I foresaw 10 years previously of a rending of society’s rotten fabric as the Rock of Christ emerges for disciples to take a stand upon Him (as here).

That would mean a separation of righteous out of unclean: “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord” (2Cor 6:17), not an excommunication of heretics but a full-blown schism. Unless that is, Matthew 13’s parable is enacted beforehand by the physical removal of satan’s ‘plants’, or the Lord brings another Sovereign shaking!

Such ‘meanderings’ have since received confirmation through a prophetic word brought by Bill Jennings, published by UK Prophetic Words (and now posted as Shaking and Rebuilding the Church in the UK).

First, however; it’s important that readers be aware of the gravity of this situation; hence this overview. Next, we’ll examine how Synod’s and Parliamentarians’ actions fulfill End-times prophetic details given by Jesus and His apostle Paul…

Fulfilled prophecy #17: midnight hour, exposure of EU corruption and CofE apostasy.

In connection with the fast-approaching Referendum and what was surfacing elsewhere I mused last May Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next the EU?  Only six months later I considered aspects of that passing thought being fulfilled as item #10 (here, here and here).

During last year we also learned about deep corruption within F.I.F.A. and football clubs in the UK, plus issues in the Metropolitan Police.

Earlier this month the EU Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem presented a full report on the problem of corruption across the European Union. The extent of corruption in Europe is “breathtaking” and it costs the EU economy at least 120bn euros (£99bn) annually, according to the European Commission (BBC – thankyou Jonathan Ely at  Why Leave The EU?).

With this in mind could it be just coincidental or is the Lord pointing us to another source of corruption – this time spiritual??

Is the timing of the dream Tony Puccio had of Big Ben striking midnight and of today’s double-posting by Adrian Hilton, aka religio-political blogger Archbishop Cranmer, on Canterbury Cathedral being used for a private Freemasonic service a warning shot from the Lord??  (Read posts with extensive comments here and here – includes a note on my personal deliverance from that vile demonic spirit, even though I hadn’t been a FM!!)
