It took three days to dawn upon me that what I’d heard on Sunday and read early the next morning from an American prophet were connected! Whilst getting up today, I was struck by that realisation and started drafting this blog only to find much later when back online that Veronika West in Northern Ireland had just posted a very blessed vision about hope and broken, shattered lives. So I submit this account for your weighing:
Normally, for church I use my hand-size NIV Bible. But before we set off there I thought of taking my double-brick sized, very heavy study Bible just in case I needed to check cross-references – LOL, how little did I know…!!!

Although the version Hollie was reading was shown on overhead screen I followed her from my NKJV and particularly noted introductory verse 2 (she started from the next verse) as clearly implying that, as God has known all believers before they became to faith in Jesus – and most mysteriously since ‘the foundation of the world’ (Eph 1:4) – we have a destiny within His purposes and plans throughout earth’s history.
My Bible reads (courtesy BibleGateway.com – underlined phrases caught my attention):
Greeting to the Elect Pilgrims
1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 2 elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.
A Heavenly Inheritance
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been [c]grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
10 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 11 searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. 12 To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to [e]us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into.
At the close of Hollie:s teaching any members of the congregation desiring prayer on this topic were invited to move to the rear of the hall for ministry. But my eyes were drawn to ‘Word Wealth’, a box explaining the Greek meaning of ‘kept’, and I had a ‘nudge’ this may be of help to those recipients for I recalled we have guardian angels.
kept: phroureo Strong’s #5432 A military term picturing a sentry standing guard as protection against the enemy. We are in spiritual combat, but God’s power and peace (Phil 4:7) are our sentinels and protectors.
So, I showed it to Hollie and she announced to everyone her brief summary of this, and referred to angelic support throughout difficult times.
I was to discover the next morning that the same day over in the States Johnny Enlow had been praying and revisiting a highly pertinent prophecy, and posted this to his Facebook on Monday:
SUNDAY PRAYER TIME – USA
June 2015 Prophetic Word I published that I thought relevant to revisit. God has been speaking into this day for a while.
This is part of a sovereign design of God for this age of restoration of all things and He is working with the minority. He is working in conjunction with the few prophets of His who are able to see Him and what He is doing. Many of His prophets have become stuck and struck, seeing into the second heavens and all that Satan has said he will do. Many are terrified and it is coming out in their words and in their writings and in their videos. However, 99% of what Satan has been plotting and planning for the destruction of America WILL NOT HAPPEN. In most cases he doesn’t know he won’t be able to accomplish his plots, but he is about to go through a series of startling and humiliating setbacks. He is going to be humiliated in the eyes of his own powers and principalities. They have again underestimated the King of Kings and will suffer accordingly.
Do you, my reader, perceive how both scripture and prophecy from both sides of the ‘Pond’ have a similar threaded theme of giving us strongly encouraging hope in these tumultuous days?
And then today along comes publication of Veronika’s vision relating to hope and the appearance of angels…(previous post refers).
PS: for newer readers title’s ‘GPS’ annotation refers to God’s Global Prophecy Signals, as outlined here and soon to be updated with their scriptural basis.
