Prophecy Progress Update 36 – Press’ pun on Leopards changing spots

There have been doubts over Germany’s official support of Ukraine, but with the latest  news Veronika West was able to post this last night on a prophecy brought last March coming to pass (but note she reports her Facebook may be ‘shadow-banned’). She writes at His Kingdom Prophecy:

“So today, I was sent a link [on Facebook] to a News headline that really got my attention…As I read the headline, The Holy Spirit immediately quickened to me a powerful Prophetic Word I received, where The Spirit spoke to me about the Nation of Germany, Three Times the Bear Shall Bite.

Are Bible and modern prophecy lining up? 2 – visions of beasts

Just as Jesus Christ prophesied, USA now brings End-times into our days

Yes, as J Biden said yesterday in signing away his personal stance ‘on the dotted line’ as a president of the United States of America, the law brought into effect “law matters to every single American”. Moreover, in brazenly defying Biblical and Catholic teaching his action involves EVERYBODY IN THE WHOLE WORLD, just as Jesus Christ Himself foretold about the days preceding His Return in Glory. SO, GET READY …!!!

Now first things first (and sandwich-style!), the Holy Word of God:

IT IS WRITTEN” (Luke 17 NKJV):

The Coming of the Kingdom

20 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21 nor will they say, [f]‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is [g]within you.”
22 Then He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, [h]‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them. 24 For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. 25 But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed….”

YES GOD IS LOVE, BUT HE ORDAINS HOW WE SHOULD LIVE:

A REMINDER OF THE DEADLY SIN OF SODOM: (Genesis 19, NKJV)

Sodom’s Depravity

19 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. 2 And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.” And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.”

3 But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.”…

Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed

12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”
14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking…

HOW AND WHY HUMAN SEXES WERE MADE (Genesis 2 NKJV):
23 And Adam said:

“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called [i]Woman,
Because she was taken out of [j]Man.”

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be[k] joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Rabbinic tradition cites the wickedness of Noah’s days in which God deeply regretted making humanity because our depravity (Gen 6:5 translinear Hebrew) arose from not only fallen angels interbreeding with women but also by state-sanctioned same-sex marriage!

Gog-Magog Update: Russia and Iran defence partnership

This 83rd posting in monitoring the Gog-Magog alliance, as prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39, refers to yesterday’s Jewish News Syndicate report summarised in William Koenig’s daily updates: 

Is Bible prophecy of ‘666 Mark’ being fulfilled in Britain – or just coincidental?

This is a most sensitive matter and I ask my readers to weigh and pray accordingly with the Lord Jesus Christ, for we are considering serious spiritual matters not the outward and inward characteristics and relationships of people for we are referring to principles in the Holy Bible and Kingdom of Almighty God:

This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e] That number is 666. [Revelation 13:18, NJKV]

Further to previous post Bible Update: Revelation 13:16-17 Up and Running in China, which displays this screenshot from my Telegram channel of yesterday’s prophecy-related news, which subsequently shows the following items:

A PRAYER FOR PM
Lord, would you reveal yourself to our new Prime mInister In your full identity as Son of the One Living God and Lord of Lords, convict him of his sin and his need of Your saving grace. May he thereby, serve to encourage others to search for and come to One who is The Way, The Truth and the Life and into Father’s eternal Kingdom.

REVELATION CHAPTER 13:

British Man Becomes First to Get Microchipped with Bank Card

Bible Update: Revelation 13:16-17 up and running in China

Here’s the Word of the Living Lord God on this, as foreseen by Apostle John:

The Beast out of the Earth

11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Koenig’s Eye View  By William Koenig

Israel and Russia tensions significantly worsened

The biblical suspense has ratcheted up the past two weeks between Russia, Iran and Israel over the Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has become something of a proxy battlefield for drones from Turkey and Iran. Ukrainian defense forces have made spectacular use of Turkey’s Bayraktar drones, which have become one of the hottest military products in the world, while Iran is (not very) secretly believed to be supplying Russia with its Mohajer and Shahed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Iran inks deal with Russia to supply them with ballistic missiles. Ukraine asked Israel for air defense help amid drone assault. Russia warned Israel from intervention after an anonymous senior Ukrainian official said that Israel was providing Ukraine with intel on Iranian drones being deployed by Russia. Israel’s Gantz stated they may provide Ukraine with rocket and drone alert systems. Israel relies on access in Syria to take out Iran weapon shipments. Moreover, Russia is not pleased with Israel discussing supplying much needed natural gas to European countries.

These events certainly bring attention to Gog and Magog alignments of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and whether Russia or Turkey is the lead nation in the Gog and Magog war with Israel.

WEF’s Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight – Conclusion

CONCLUSION – THE FINAL REVIVAL

I am absolutely convinced that shortly before the return of Jesus there will be a great awakening. I believe “There before me was a great multitude that no-one could count ………. in front of the Lamb” and “these are they who have come out of the great tribulation” Revelation 7:9 and 14, confirms that view. We cannot, and should not seek to, stop the establishment of a new world order.

However, recognising, explaining and broadcasting the method by which prophecy is being fulfilled, will aid evangelism. We can pray that the maximum number of people will hear and understand what the information means. Let us pray for, and be involved in, the completion of the Great Commission. Amen.

WEF’s Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight – Neil Mackereth

Here, my long-time friend and teacher on End-times Neil Mackereth assesses the WEF aspects relating to a possible (probable?) “new world order” government. It comes with several links and for those who are short of time the last is a “must watch” (approx 14 mins). Those under ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’ are the next most important. Your attention is drawn to Neil’s clear conclusion and I trust his briefing brings a number of deep concerns into the Light:

THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM

Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight

BACKGROUND

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a non-governmental international organization for public-private cooperation, founded by German economist and engineer, Klaus Schwab, in 1971. ( https://www.weforum.org/about/world-economic-forum )

The WEF has an annual conference in Davos which attracts national leaders, high profile politicians, billionaire philanthropists, international financiers, and the corporate heads and senior executives of national and multi-national commercial enterprises.

DAVOS 2022

Klaus Schwab opened this year’s conference with the statement: Continue reading

Hymn’s meter confirms ’11’ timing of post on Book of Revelation! – God-incidence for “soon”?? (GPS #81.1 & 2)

I’d like to share with you something new – well, new to me anyway!

Although not having literary leanings I had a very dim recollection from my school days of poetic rhythm – and in music, of course. In those days school assemblies featured some Anglican and Methodist hymns.

At Saturday men’s breakfast held at 3 Counties Vineyard, someone chooses a hymn for us to sing before we discuss the scriptures, this time (at about 8:30am) number 359:’

A brief discussion ensues BUT THIS TIME, because its not well-known and we have no musician, our convenor sitting at the far end of the table from me explains that the extra numbers/initials topping each hymn in this pocket-size hymnal indicate its tune. Right away a brother opposite me adds, “For example, 11-11-11-11 means each line is of 11 syllables”.

NOW MY ATTENTION WAS GRABBED – I said, “Wow, that’s the date and time I’ve already set for a post on the Book of Revelation to appear on my blog today!”

I was well and truly ‘God-smacked’!!!

I had yet to open the hymnal and not seen his example heading that page, as illustrated above:  ‘To God be the Glory! Great things He hath done!’  < TRULY, AMEN > 

Now, allow me to recap.:

On 31st May, Neil Mackereth sent me the latest part for his series on What is the Book of Revelation For? I couldn’t reply for a week and wanted to clarify about some translations of Rev 22:20 of Greek ‘Tachu’ (Strongs G5035).  So his reply got included that part.  BUT note that we’d also discussed when it should be published over the weekend. I prepped it last Wed/Thursday and suggested scheduling for automatic publication at 10:10am on 10th June but this changed, as told in that post:

‘Also, in our chat over Rev 22:20 I mention some translations state ‘soon’, whereas literal Greek has ‘quickly’, which implies suddenly. Neil reminds me he writes in ‘SIGNS’ of ‘soon’ in Rev 1:1 often being translated as meaning events will take place over a short period of time, rather than our concept of ‘soon’.  So, I propose scheduling this last part for publishing at 11th minute of 11th hour of 11th day of June 2022!

To my ploy Neil replies, “11th hour on the 11th sounds significant/appropriate in light of recent comments on the Battle for Britain, changing of the guard, Big Ben’s imminent recommencement of regular chiming, the quickening (exponential) pace of prophetic end times indicators (wars and rumours of wars) etc, etc. Time is short!”   (American prophet Robin D Bullock goes live at The 11th Hour every Tuesday – RB’s note.)’

Note that, for the purpose of emphasis, I altered Robin’s title from ‘The Eleventh Hour’ (as on his site) thereby showing FOUR 11s – as was to turn up by way of God-incidental confirmation BEFORE publication!!!!

Now, being Monday, back at my desk I find this email from Neil sent Friday – he confirms what I’ve got in mind to write (as above):

‘I was thinking about the 11th, 11th comments: : At present Satan appears to have the upper hand – the church, Christians et al are being ridiculed, derided, attacked, oppressed and, apparently, defeated. The 11th  hour of the 11th  day (albeit in the 11th month) has come to signify remembering the defeat of an evil enemy. 

I think there is a similar spiritual significance in Revelation 11:11:

“But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them”.

I repeat, Time is Short (where “short” means it’s all going to happen very quickly)’

In preparing this I’d already checked The Footsteps of the Messiah by scholar Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum, who explains on page 13 about Rev 1:1

‘Verse one further states that the things that are being revealed must shortly come to pass. This is often misunderstood to mean that all the prophecies of the book were to be fulfilled as soon as they were given…However, the word ‘shortly’ simply means that once the day of fulfillment comes, where will be no delay in its execution.’

REFERENCE

Cantica Sacra – Exploring the rich legacy of sacred singing:

‘Meter refers to 1) the pattern of beats in a measure of music, or 2) to the number of syllables per line in poetry and music. Most hymnals do not include time signatures in the music, and are more concerned with the second definition of meter. (For more on the first definition, see the page on measures and time signatures and the page on simple and compound meter on the musictheory.net site.)

Hymnals display the meter of a hymn or hymn tune (meter to which the text conforms) either as a series of numerals (e.g., 87.87), letters (e.g., C.M.), or a combination (e.g., 87.87.D)

Time to get right with God: a call to all churches – Chris G Bennett

Chris’ opening reaction reminds me of when I opened my Bible to check what Jesus had said about the parable of wheat and tares, only to hear “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – and what’s foretold therein really is happening!

TIME TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD

As I read this today, it was like a light went on in my spirit. “The Bible is unfolding in front of the whole world. It’s time to GET RIGHT with God.”

It wasn’t a white light, but rather, it was a red warning light which I knew meant the warning is as much for the church as it is for the world. Biblical events and prophecies are unfolding and being confirmed before our eyes every day!

We’ve all heard the expression, “The world is going to hell in a hand basket!” Well, Holy Spirit quickens to me that it’s not just the ‘world’ – it’s great swathes of the church too if we don’t start looking at everything through the eyes of eternity instead of seeing everything through the worlds eyes.

There is coming a great reset from God, rather than as the world believes, from men. Man’s inhumanity to man has plumbed depths that will seriously shock even those who have held fast to their great faith. The plans for worldwide control, one world religion, one world currency, one world government, will all come to nought as the Lord reveals the depravity of those behind those plans. The real problem with this revelation is that many, in both the world and in the church, simply will not believe it – indeed many will refuse to believe it. There have been enough signs of this during the recent plandemic to prove the case to any reasonably sane and logical mind.

The Lord is impressing upon me an urgency to call people to repentance and faith. Repentance for their continued unbelief, and faith in God for the remedy! He says the coming move of Holy Spirit is for the signs and wonders confirming His very existence and power, but the real revival is in repentance of those both inside and outside the church. The revival will bring many, many re-commitments as well as millions of first time salvations.

It really is time to GET RIGHT with God. The call to every church right now is – IT’S TIME TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD, even if you think you are right with Him – it’s time to make sure!

Globalists enter the kill phase of Great Reset. Remember Deagel population forecast? It now makes total sense — Leo Hohmann

This was a big week for the globalists. They feel it’s their time, go time, to launch the most difficult phase of the Great Reset so they can get on with what they call the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, as explained by World Economic Forum guru Klaus Schwab, will lead to a “fusion” of every human being’s physical, biological and digital identities. It’s basically the dawning of a new era based on transhumanism and technocracy, something akin to what was laid out in the novel ‘Brave New World’.

But they can’t get there until they reset everything. Kill off the old. Bring on the new.

Resetting the world isn’t something you can pull off by just pushing a button. It requires a series of well-designed global crises, as Schwab and his chief advisor Yuval Noah Hariri have said on more than one occasion. […] Globalists have entered the kill phase of Great Reset; Remember the Deagel population forecast? It now makes total sense

Check Leo’s posting for I’m reminded of the Bible’s accounts of the beasts in Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 – BUT we must not overlook what the Lord is doing, as brought by today’s prophets, to prevent the hater of humanity circumventing His ordained End-times.

Top economist says ‘We’re about to abandon traditional system of money’ and not a single U.S. politician is talking about it: Why? — Leo Hohmann

Could it be the same reason none want to talk about digital passports and killer injections? Since I posted the article on March 30 about Pippa Malmgren’s bombshell statement at the World Government Summit on the coming global digital money system, I have been inundated with emails from worried readers. They want to know what they should do to protect their assets in the face of such a dramatic change….

Bible Update: Rev 13 Mark of the Beast – Leo Hohmann BOMBSHELL VIDEO: Economist at World Government Summit says new financial world order about to shift in dramatic new direction!

The World Government Summit is underway this week (Mar-Apr) in Dubai and we’ve already got a bombshell to report. Dr. Pippa Malmgren, a top American economist who served as a special adviser to former President George W. Bush, made a statement that confirms everything myself and others have been reporting for quite some time – that a cashless society is looming right around the corner

…”She states her belief that the world financial system is about to switch accounting systems & digital money. Not decentralized cryptos, but centralized CBDCs (central bank digital currency)

We are on the brink of a dramatic change where we are about to, and I’ll say this boldly, we are about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting and introduce a new one. And the new one; the new accounting is what we call blockchain… It means digital, it means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy, which will give us far greater clarity over what’s going on.”

Leo posted the above on 30 March and I delayed re-blogging but it makes a highly suitable follow-on to Michael Bennett’s dream of Biden and £ note – also read Tim Shey’s contribution affixed thereto. 

Leo makes this highly pertinent point:

‘As I’ve stated before, the entire Great Reset hinges on two things – the establishment of a global digital currency and a global digital identity for every man, woman and child.

Pippa Malmgren is warning us. That system is at the door. And once it’s here, it marks the beginning of the end because nobody will be allowed to buy or sell without becoming a digitized, hybrid human being. I believe it will be possible for us to live outside this system for a while, but we need a plan, a network. We will need to live in community with like-minded refusniks….’

Are Bible and modern prophecy lining up? 3 – Gog-Magog update, Russia & Iran

To enable this to get out after a late-afternoon of internet dropouts – even corrections failing – I’m limiting this posting to screenshots of news connecting the prophecies Veronika West brought into the ongoing Gog-Magog alliance of chapter 38 in prophet Ezekiel’s book.

A week or so ago I was taking so-called ‘friendly-fire’ from someone adamantly insistent this prophecy has been fulfilled, according to medieval historians – BUT IF that’s true, then how come modern scholars STILL say its eschatalogical?  AND how come the specific modern-day nations of great military prowess are in an operational alliance???  SEE below, in reverse chronological order:

AND this doesn’t include modern rabbinic prophecies!!

Are Bible and modern prophecy lining up? 2 – visions of beasts

RECAP: On 22 February I began Bible Update: Daniel 7 vision of bear eating 3 ribs – Veronika West’s vision of Russia-Ukraine as follows:

‘As soon as I saw the following image it reminded me of part of the mind-blowing vision of four beasts and ‘one like a Son of Man coming with the clouds of heaven’ that Old Testament prophet Daniel was given about 2,670 years ago, as recounted in chapter 7 of his book:

Ukraine and two areas claiming independence and Russia’s support look like three ribs, the largest as though being a chunk of meat. Read Daniel’s vision in full here, noting:

5 And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’

This is usually regarded by scholars as relating to the ancient Medo-Persian empire but in view of the plainly eschatalogical interpretation Daniel was given, the direct reference Jesus Christ made to his writings, plus their later connection to the Revelation that God gave to Him and shared with His Apostle John, it is not wholly without merit to consider this beast’s imagery as relating to modern Russia – also symbolically known as a bear.’

A FIRST WITNESS

Next therein, I republished Veronika West’s word of 24 January The Bear Nation Arises With A Hunger For War!  This includes an opening line “But listen, for The Lion of Judah will roar as the Great Eagles soar!”   This seems like the British lion and America’s bald eagle, but the spiritual allusion makes it quite clear this is not our two nations.

On 3rd March she published Three Times the Bear Shall Bite in which begins, ‘Listen! For at the sound of the roar of The Lion. Nations shall be shaken and boundary lines shall be shifted, as battle-lines are being drawn. And then they will say, “Look! Look to the Nation of Germany!” For out of the dark cave of isolation and shame, it shall suddenly emerge from the shadows for greater political power and monetary gain.

Veronika then refers to Germany as a Leopard that “doesn’t change its spots” and then to a Red Dragon.

BUT, in checking Daniel 7 I was struck by the fact these four symbolical characters appear simultaneously!  Verse 3 states, ‘And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.’  Note well; they appeared at the same time!  Also, there’s nothing in the explanation-interpretation Daniel was given (verse 15 onwards) explicitly stating that those empires will be consecutive – it’s simply assumed!

[Scholars and theologians consider those four beasts of winged lion, lolling bear, four-headed and winged leopard plus a terrifying and unnatural griffin-like beast, out of which grows the infamous ‘little horn,’  represent four historical, consecutive empires that were to invade the Middle-East: viz, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.]

In the second word Veronika relates ‘…And many will say, “See! A Leopard doesn’t change its spots.” For surely what will begin to unfold is a type and a shadow of Adolf Hitler’s demonic stronghold.”

NOW, that distinctly implies and refers to the re-emergence of the Nazi regime or ‘Third Reich’ (that is empire) as Fourth Reich – that is, a 4-headed leopard as in Daniel 7!!

AND, this connects into what’s known as ‘Prussia-Gate’ – with direct connection to Klaus Schwab, founder of the Word Economic Forum, as mentioned in Leo Hohmann’s recent posts. (I’ll leave you to do your own research on that deep-state topic.)

Veronika’s two visions of ‘titans’ have a roaring lion (of Judah? Not UK’s lion and wings of US eagle), a leopard, a bear and a dragon.

Therefore, I believe we need to be open to the possibility of Daniel’s vision being not of over two millennia ago, but about our present times and situation in Eastern Europe.

On page 658 of Unlocking The Bible (2003) esteemed  teacher J. David Pawson (with Andy Peck) asks,

‘So, what do we make of these beasts …followed by a kingdom?…

The Second Coming of Jesus is clearly in view here. My speculation is that the lion with wings is the USA and UK, the bear is Russia and the leopard is the Arabic world. So they will still be around right at the end, but they will be replaced by the kingdom of God, but I could not be dogmatic about this identification.’

A SECOND WITNESS

As the above musings were already in my mind I was pleased to read this by Simon Copley, posted last Friday on Prophetic Releasers for UK Community page (Fbk). He too notes the lack of sequencing in Daniel’s vision and kindly permits republication –  I trust this will read well in view of Fbk’s hidden formatting: Continue reading

Bible Update: Daniel 7 vision of Bear eating 3 ribs – Veronika West’s vision of Russia/Ukraine

As soon as I saw the following image it reminded me of part of the mind-blowing vision of four beasts and ‘one like a Son of Man coming with the clouds of heaven’ that Old Testament prophet Daniel was given about 2,670 years ago, as recounted in chapter 7 of his book:

Ukraine and two areas claiming ‘independence and Russia’s support look like three ribs, the largest as though being a chunk of meat. Read Daniel’s vision in full here, noting:

5 And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’

This is usually regarded by scholars as relating to the ancient Medo-Persian empire but in view of the plainly eschatalogical interpretation Daniel was given, the direct reference Jesus Christ made to his writings, plus their later connection to the Revelation that God gave to Him and shared with His Apostle John, it is not wholly without merit to consider this beast’s imagery as relating to modern Russia – also symbolically known as a bear.

As, for example, this published four weeks ago yesterday on His Kingdom Prophecy:

“Watch!  For now The Bear Nation arises from a time of political hibernation with a hunger for War and an appetite for greater Territorial Occupation and Domination among The Nations!”

During my time of prayer early this morning (24 January) I was so restless in my spirit.  I could tangibly feel the battle raging in the Realm of The Spirit.  I could literally hear in the natural, the clashing of swords and the sound of fiery arrows flying.

I heard the Words, ”A clashing of The Titans!” and as those Words echoed loudly in the Realm of The Spirit, suddenly I was given sight into The Spirit Realm and I saw that Satan was full of rage and he was pacing to and fro.

I heard these Words, ”He knows his time is short….” and as I heard those Words, suddenly I saw that he was draped in a cloud of darkness and the darkness that surrounded him moved like ripples on the surface of water.

As I was given liberty to see deeper and with greater insight into The Spirit Realm, I saw that the cloud of thick darkness that enveloped him was an army of demons, but as I looked and looked again, I saw that this horde of demonic beings were waiting for their new assignments — waiting for their marching orders — waiting to be given their specific targets

Then suddenly I heard The Spirit say,  “Watch!  For did I not say I will shake, shake, shake the Nations of Europe and that a great shaking would take place in the Nation of Ukraine? 

Yes!  For 2022 will be a year of wars and rumors of wars, for a clashing of The Titans shall now begin to take place for greater power and prominence.

But listen, for The Lion of Judah will roar as the Great Eagles soar!  Watch!  For now The Bear Nation arises from a time of political hibernation with a hunger for war, and an appetite for greater Territorial Occupation and Domination among The Nations!

See!  For The Bear Nation now rises high upon its hinds legs on the boundary lines of The Nations, and puffing out its chest and showing its sharp teeth, it seeks to intimidate and manipulate, for its eyes are firmly fixed upon a rich and fertile land.

But Watch!  For The Dragon spirit is now circling over Nations in the midst of a time of birthing.  Open your eyes and see, for the thrashing tail of the Serpent spirit is now stirring up great turmoil and trouble.

Yes!  I say turmoil and trouble shall be seem in The Nation of Taiwan, for a time of great conflict, confusion and strife shall cause Nations to suddenly awaken in The Valley of Decision, for Sheep and Goat Nations shall now begin to take their place, as the gathering and the scattering Winds of The Whirlwind of My Seven Spirits drive stiff-necked and rebellious nations to their knees.

For the plumb-line of My Justice and Judgement has fallen upon The Nations, the battle-lines have been drawn and boundary lines have been set.

For even as the great Bear Nation invades and The Red Dragon strikes…

My Governing Hand shall move swiftly and severely with great might to bring Nations into perfect alignment with My end-time assignment for the greatest Harvest of souls that the earth has ever seen!”

Take note for Prayer:

While praying over this, The Spirit of Revelation began to show me that when the bear comes out of hibernation, it is extremely hungry having used up all its fat stores.  However, a bear coming out of hibernation is also at its weakest.

I heard so clearly The LORD speak of Russia, now coming out of political hibernation with a hunger for War and an appetite for greater Power and Domination, but that Russia, though it gives the appearance of great strength in order to intimidate its enemies, it is at its weakest, and will only gain greater power and strength as it begins to take ground.

The Great Rethink: back to basics, Bible prophecy – Neil Mackereth – 3,600th post!

We’re blessed to receive news this week from Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS and a regular contributor:

“Dear Richard, I mentioned recently that I felt called to revitalise the huge significance of biblical prophecy, especially as a tool for evangelism. You were kind enough to refer me to some of your earlier material on the subject. Herewith my thoughts!”

THE  GREAT  RETHINK

INTRODUCTION

As some of you will know, I think Biblical prophecy is incredible, mind-blowing and “undersold”! Fulfilled prophecy is confirmation of the absolute authenticity of the Bible; it proves that God is omniscient, omnipotent, infallible, knows the end from the beginning, and has always known all the machinations that will happen in between.

Much of society has consigned the Bible, and church-going, to the mundane, commonplace and dreary: and that is our fault. We Christians urgently need a new approach that catches the imagination of those in desperate need. Troubles are intensifying; people are searching, there has never been a better opportunity.

I feel called to highlight and emphasise the astounding, miraculous and supernatural nature of Biblical prophecy. Prophecy is dispersed (dotted about) throughout the Bible and, therefore, usually not read in a linear and related fashion. For me, listing prophecies in one place brings joy and peace to my heart and mind: it confirms that God is in control.

As ever, I will endeavour to keep what follows as simple as possible. But first …

BACK TO BASICS

The Bible, at its opening, quickly moves from creation to satan’s success in instigating the fall of man. Then follows God’s sovereign selection of Abram (Abraham) and his descendants, to be His chosen people (Israel). Thereafter, we see the story of their triumphs, failures, trials and tribulations; and God’s endeavours to guide them through His elected prophets, culminating in the first advent of Jesus Christ.  The New Testament describes Jesus’ life and role as Redeemer King, His death, resurrection and ascension to heaven.  At the close of the Bible, Jesus returns and satan and His followers are overthrown.

The Book of Revelation is the essential finale of the story: God emphasises its huge importance, giving blessings to readers and hearers (Rev 1:3); He makes clear its prophetic nature, and warns of dire consequences for anyone who changes the text (Rev 20:18-19). No other book in the Bible carries such blessings and warnings.

Revelation is difficult to understand but the truth is, many prophecies are unfathomable until their fulfillment [try reading Isaiah 53 (written circa 750 BC) as if you had no knowledge of Jesus’ life and crucifixion]. In considering Revelation, we need to overcome centuries of “Greek World View” interpretations and analyses that seek to apply logic and to deny or ignore any supernatural implications. God cannot be explained by some logical or common-sense process. We can learn a huge amount by a systematic approach to Bible study, but the mystery remains and there comes a point where only faith, and God-given spiritual discernment, can help us.

I will look at the predictions in Revelation at a later date. In the meantime, here are some examples of prophecies that have been, or are in the process of being, fulfilled:

RELATING TO JESUS’ FIRST ADVENT

Prophecy Old Testament (delivered) New Testament (fulfilled)
Born of a virgin Isaiah 7:14 Matthew 1:22-23
Born in Bethlehem Micah 5:2 Luke 2:4-6
Called out of Egypt Hosea 11:1 Matthew 2:14-15
Taught in parables Psalms 78:1-2 Matthew 13:34-35
Healed the sick Isaiah 29:18-19, 35:4-6, 61:1 Matthew 11:2-6
Entered Jerusalem on a donkey Zechariah 9:9 John 12:12-15
Flogged and abused Isaiah 50:5-6 Mark 14:53-15:20
Hands and feet pierced Psalms 22:16 Mark 15: 20-26
Clothes divided Psalms 22:18 Matthew 27:35
Killed and buried Isaiah 53:8-9 Mark 15:33-47
Rose on the third day Hosea 6:2 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

 RECENTLY FULFILLED (or ongoing)

  • Egyptian will turn against Egyptian (Isaiah 19:2) (“Arab Spring”)
  • Damascus will be in ruins (Isaiah 17:1)
  • Gaza will writhe in agony (Zecharia 9:5)
  • False teachers and prophets will lead people astray (2 Peter 2:1-2)
  • Earthquakes, famines, plague and pestilences will intensify (Luke 21:11)
  • Travel and knowledge will increase greatly (Daniel 12:4)
  • People will prefer fantasy to reality, myth to Christian truths (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
  • There will be wars and rumours of wars (Matthew 24:6)
  • The Gospel will be preached to all nations – (Matthew 24:14) (How will we know?)
  • Things will be as they were in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:36-37)
  • People will be proud, unforgiving, lovers of self, lovers of money and pleasure (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
  • In any communication on end time prophecies the message, and the messenger, will be mocked and ridiculed (2 Peter 3:3-4)
  • Jerusalem will be perceived as a problem by the whole world (Zecharia 12:2-3).
  • Christians will be persecuted and martyred (Matthew 24:9)
  • Many will turn away from the Christian faith (Matthew 24:10)

SPECIFIC TO ISRAEL

  • Because of disobedience, people of Israel were dispersed (Deut 28:64-66)
  • The Jews will return to their biblical homeland (fulfilled in 1948), for example:
  1. God will bring back His exiled people (Amos 9:14-15) (Jer 16:14-15)
  2. The scattered flock will be gathered in (Ezek 34:13, Jer 31:10)
  3. A nation born in a day (labour pains to follow!) (Isaiah 66:7-8)
  4. Forces of hugely superior strength will be defeated (Lev 26:3,7-8)
  5. The formerly desolate land will become fertile and fruitful (Zech 7:14)
  6. These things happen for the sake of God’s Holy Name (Ezek 36:19-24)

Each of the prophecies referred to above could be the basis for a long discourse, and there are many more that could be added.

REVITALISED EVANGELISM

I believe that the next stage of evangelising will involve demonstrating to a sceptical world that fulfilled prophecy confirms the authenticity of the Bible and underlines God’s infallibility and love. He has given us all the information we need!

Jesus gave us pointers for the circumstances that will prevail when He returns, but makes it clear that the specific time of his coming cannot be known. We are well along the time-line of prophetic events. Those signs that await fulfillment could happen very quickly. Reading the Bible, watching what is happening, particularly in Israel and Jerusalem, and seeking to understand the spiritual significance of unusual signs and symbols in the world around us, are all key elements in our being ready for the return of Jesus.

Now is the time for a new approach, a Great Rethink:

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” (Isaiah 6:8)

I am convinced that there is at least one expert marketing strategist out there who is envisioned by the Word of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit and who is ready to step into his or her anointing.
