A ‘now’ word on President Trump from the UK

Thank you UK Prophetic Words and Chris Bennett for this item based upon articles in the Washington Post (updated) Photo surfaces of evangelical leaders laying hands on Donald Trump in the White House (plus photo by Rodney Howard Brown):

2016: God has chosen the 45th President of the USA (Cranmer-link)

A WORD ABOUT DONALD TRUMP: LOOK BEYOND THE MEDIA, THE LIES, THE PROPAGANDA

Seeing the pictures of the faith leaders praying for President Donald Trump, the Lord reminded me that this picture, and the report that should go with it, will never appear in the mainstream media. [RB: remember what Revd John Kilpatrick brought here from the Lord on this difference.] The Lord reminded me of my wife’s comments, and He said this,

“Tell My people all over the world to LOOK BEYOND the MEDIA. Look beyond the LIES and PROPAGANDA. Look beyond the outpouring of my enemies. Look beyond what you see and hear in the natural. LOOK TO ME and what I am already doing!

“I Myself have already sown the seed of revival. I myself have already nurtured and cultivated that seed. It has already started to grow. Look, do you not see it? It has already started to bear fruit – fruit that will last. Fruit that will carry you into My kingdom.

“Donald J Trump may not be the world’s idea of a missionary, but My ways are not your ways. He may not be the ideal saviour that so many are looking for. He may not be either the world’s or the churches’ choice of leader. But, but, but – he is My CHOSEN VESSEL, flaws and all. Through him, because of the freedom he brings, revival will flourish. Through him and his example, the world will look again at My SON and his gift of SALVATION – and then you will see the REVIVAL, the TSUNAMI of my Holy Spirit, fall upon your land.”

THE SHAKING: watch for signs on earth and in the heavens

Although I don’t agree 100% with John Kilpatrick’s reasons for a pre-Tribulation ‘rapture’ of believers in Jesus Christ, some significant serendipity alerted me to pay very close attention to his latest message entitled Your Redemption Is Drawing Near. I’m amazed to discover upon transcribing some of its video that a particular time-stamp reinforces a personal ‘bridge over the Pond’!

WORDS OF WARNING TO THE WORLD

After bemoaning the dearth of good, regular teaching upon End-times throughout Western churches and the increasing ungodliness across American society and churches, John brings a profound, prophetic warning. His tone becomes increasingly sombre as he speaks more carefully and pausing often (see video link):

(at 2:10:50 mark) “I really believe that 2017 is pivotal; not just because of The Radiant Woman of Revelation 12 [RB: in which he refers to its astronomical manifestation in September]…and not just because it’s possible that this is a Jubilee year, nobody really knows, but there are indications...

(2:11:45) “One thing I can tell you is this: the Lord spoke to me a few weeks ago, two mornings in a row and He said, “The earth is marked for change”.

(2:12:00) “I heard it when I was coming out of sleep (pausing to wipe his brow) and the next morning when I was coming out of sleep I heard the very same voice and very same words: “The earth is marked for change”

“It so shook me I called a meeting that night, took my staff out to eat…and I told them at the end of the meal what I just told you – it doesn’t sound serious when I say it, but that’s because you didn’t hear the voice I heard! But whenever the Lord or Holy Spirit tells you that,  I wasn’t able to convey it like that. So you can’t tell what I felt – but I know the earth is marked for change.

“And that is not just the earth but is also the heavens – and the Holy Spirit has said to me there’s going to be such things begin to happen…it’s going to be so shaking to people before we get out of here, before the Lord comes to get us, there’s going to be so many things that’s going to shake people that, if you’re not forewarned, it’s going to shake you!

“You will remember my voice, you will hear my voice ring in your head a hundred times when things start happening and you’ll say, “He told us!”. I hope it brings you some comfort that I told you ahead of time… but you hear me; when things start happening there will be no more headlines of Russian collusion…no more talk of tampering with the election, all that won’t even be in the papers at all…I want to say one more thing.:

“I never really put two and two together ’til Friday as I was preparing my message – but because Donald Trump is president and not afraid of anyone he’s saying things most presidents would hold…and we need a president now who says what we need to hear, even if it’s insulting. So when he came out and said about ‘fake news’…yes, I began to realise I’ve been hearing a lot of fake news…There’s no collusion, there’s nothing to it, it’s all just hype..

“So now listen, listen, if the news media is reporting fake news and hype…and they’re holding back reporting things they need to report, and reporting things they don’t need to report; it all of a sudden dawned on me and the Holy Spirit said, 

“They will do the same things about the signs of My Coming – they will NOT report things that need to be reported that will shake the nations about the soon coming of Christ. They’ll hold it and talk about a bunch of nonsense”.

“And He said,

“My people will have to search it out and have to go to places of truth to get the truth because they won’t be able to hear it on the news any more!”

“You might not agree with that, but I’m ‘Donald Trump the Second’ up here today – I’m telling you things that you need to hear. I’m not afraid to tell you things you need to hear. I’ve got nothing to prove, I’m only trying to tell you things that will help you get to heaven…

“Don’t take for granted what I’m telling you about the heavens. I’m more concerned about that than I am other things because in 2009 the Lord gave me the prophetic acrostic R.E.S.U.R.R.E.C.T.I.O.N. – you remember? The one that stood out in my mind more than any other was the ‘S’ for ‘Signs’, and the Lord said there’s going to be signs in the heavens. And the Lord said to tell the people to warn them, because He said when the signs start happening it’s going to bring great fear on the earth!”

A VERY PERSONAL LEAD-IN

We watched that live-streamed service from Church of His Presence in the afternoon.  A few hours earlier at the morning service in Liphook, one of our ministers had encouraged us to come forward for a blessing for opening up,  or developing, our personal journey and calling in Jesus.

After a number of recent indications on how He’s been steering me since a young boy, I gained an insight into my mother’s preference for using my middle name – John. Homing into that, I recalled Apostle John was favoured by leaning upon Jesus’ chest, and subsequently by a visitation from which he recorded ‘the revelation of Jesus Christ’. So I briefly recalled His visitation to me one night in September 1989, as recounted in On a Trapdoor to Hell – Jesus Swoops to the Rescue.

Therefore, I was doubly intrigued a few hours later to hear pastor John start to teach upon the Book of Revelation and use that same description of John’s privileged place. Furthermore, the title of his talk is that of a scripture directly related to my encounter’s similarity to the Second Coming of the Lord. That verse appears in my late mother’s Missal for readings for The First Sunday in Advent, viz: ‘Lift up your heads because your redemption is at hand‘ (Luke 12:28) – see final part and illustration of Triple Validation…

YET it wasn’t until today that I discovered a THIRD connection in pastor John’s talk! It’s directly relevant to a personally relevant number referred to in those two earlier posts: 212 – the number of the house I lived in when a boy. AND those preceding links reveal earlier instances of such ‘serendipity’; that is, God-incidents!

In listening to the recording of pastor I’m ‘God-smacked’ by the indisputable fact that only when the recording has been playing for 2 hours 12 minutes does he start telling how he got warned upon awaking from sleep!!

Hmm, so we have something significant to contemplate and wait upon with the Lord -and those personal markers are telling me to pay attention because they validate His word to pastor Kilpatrick.  How about you, my reader, what do you think?

Casting Fire On The Earth

My thanks to Tony over the Pond in Tucson for reminding me of this vision, wherein he describes an angel as very similar to that of Robin J-D’s testimony in his recent Waves of Glory & Mercy About to Drop on Britain (part E refers).

My Dreams and Visions

I have come to cast fire upon the earth, and how I wish that it were already kindled!

These were Jesus’ words in Luke 12:49

I have had fire dreams and visions before and I have seen a vision today concerning fire. As I was driving the afternoon of 12/14/2015, I saw an angel. The angel was large and standing in the heavens above the earth. This is the best I can do to describe it. The angel had a bowl in his hand and the bowl contained fire. I saw the angel reach into the bowl and as he pulled it out he would fling his hand towards the earth and wherever the angel flung his had, you would see the fire fall in that area and begin to burn. I had a sense while being shown this vision that the angel was standing over the United States.

GPS#8 – on Britain becoming a ‘fisher of souls’ once again

Digital Globe by Cooldesign, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net

Yet another triple-strike of pieces for the ‘Invisible Jigsaw‘! Thank you Lord.

BUT today I’ve had such bother with internet dropouts again. Editing and finalising with screen going blank so my draft often failed to save properly. Thus it didn’t correct the url or permalink title from last night’s draft. The publication date should read Wednesday 5th July 2017 not 4th July – or does the Lord view it as ‘Britain’s Independence from EU Day’? !! (See Why Leave The EU? for latest.)

A couple of readers over the ‘Pond’ in North and Central America independently contacted me about a couple of prophecies on Brexit: Britain leaving the European Union. Then in came a ‘signal’ from less than a mile away!!

Yesterday, I received an email from a sister from the UK serving in central America about a year-old blog of mine – AND which is ‘God-incidentally’ relevant to a comment on last week’s first post!  Therefore, both contributions warrant close attention. Sister ‘J’ writes,

“I came across your blog a year back around the time of Brexit and have been following it ever since with interest.  I’m writing to you personally, rather than posting on your blog because my comments have to do with a blog you posted a year ago (28th June) entitled New Britain: free to fish for souls again and I wasn’t sure if I posted there whether it would be read..

“I have only just come across this post through following links from one of your latest posts.  It struck me at once that two significant things have happened in the past week or so: The launching of a new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth and the declaration by the government of reclaiming our fishing rights around Britain.  As what happens in the material (world) so often is a reflection of that which is occurring in the spiritual, it made me consider that perhaps these words were now beginning to be fulfilled (and) submit this for your consideration and comment.”

In response to my acknowledgement ‘J’ replies, “…it also occurs to me to wonder whether the challenge that HMS Elizabeth had in leaving port (with inches to spare on either side according to the Daily Telegraph report) is also a picture of the delicate (yet successful) negotiations ahead of us in leaving the EU.

I couldn’t agree more with you ‘J’, but a minor point: the ‘battleship’ in that post turns out to be a much more powerful warship! Let’s check extracts from the two visions in that Brexit post (click title to read in full – emphases mine):

NEW BRITAIN: LOOSED FREE TO FISH FOR SOULS AGAIN 

(Vision of Battleship Britain Being Released from EU-rope – Debbie Jean ) ‘I… saw in a vision in a prayer meeting a couple of weeks ago….The Lord showed me a big grey battleship docked with heavy ‘guide’ ropes at a mooring…as I saw the big old type grey battleship…I heard the Lord speak to my spirit and tell me to ‘release the heavy guide ropes’ as we did this prophetically in prayer…the battleship began to separate itself from its ‘dock’ and move away from the shore…

(I Will Restore What Has Been Stolen From Great Britain – Maria June Williams) …”Do not grieve for what was lost but rejoice for this is the year of Jubilee and I will restore what has been stolen from your nation. Once again you will be known as the “fishers of men”, I will make you into a great fishing nation again, and I will give back what you have been robbed of through the deceitfulness and cunning of man and his laws….” 

Her contact reminded me of American Tony Puccio’s quip last week at the close of his contribution to Cleansing and Preparing for the Lord’s Glory to Visit Britain. We considered his comments in Paws4Thought, except for the last:

“You will have to be sure to send some of those “fishing boats” across the pond when all heaven breaks loose in Great Britain.”

I responded about that matter being the gist of the anointed word Lydia Marrow brought, “The Redcoats Are Coming! The British Are Coming!” BUT I’d forgotten about what my cyber-friend was really referring! He’d blogged last year in his post Brexit as follows, maybe in response to my above post (note: US-style dates):

“I had a vision just before going to bed the night of 06/30/2016 and it has stayed with me upon waking. In the vision I saw Europe except it was broken up in pieces with each piece floating independently in the ocean. I saw people on each of these pieces with oars in their hands and they were all trying to row their individual  piece towards each other but to no avail. Then I heard a voice say, “What’s done is done”.

“Later on that day I saw the same pieces as I describe above only instead of people with oars, I saw people with fishing poles and their lines were dropped into the ocean. I take this to be evangelism. Possibly evangelism could be a result of these events. I entitled the posting Brexit because this is what I sensed the vision had to do with.”

A year previously Tony had blogged in England Ablaze (one of several on ‘boats’):

“I saw a vision of the country of England as I was driving today 08/16/2015.  What I saw was a topographical map of England. In what looked like the uppermost right hand corner of the county I saw a small fire begin. What came to mind here is what the Lord told me a while ago which was don’t despise small beginnings.  I saw a mouth blow on the small flame and the flame grew to a fire and the fire eventually engulfed the whole of England.

“Along with this vision I saw a country(ies) in the same way I saw England which was a topographical map. I saw deep cracks which I saw as division in the Land and got the sense that healing will be forthcoming as well of these lands. The lands were related to England.

“This morning, 08/17/2015, am adding to the vision I saw yesterday. In today’s vision I saw many many row boats, note that I said row boats and not ocean liners, leaving the shores of England for other parts of the world. Each of the boats had a small crew and I only saw one person rowing.”

NOW, back to the present – and future!

ADDITIONAL CONFIRMATION – A 3rd PIECE ADDED TO THE PICTURE!

Also yesterday, the director of Acorn Christian Healing Foundation, Revd Wes Sutton, delivered a powerful message at the Tuesday morning service for healing. Newly ordained into the CoE priesthood at the weekend, Wes spoke on the necessity of submitting to Jesus Christ as Lord as an essential prerequisite for being anointed in the power of the Holy Spirit, as is clearly implied in Apostle Peter’s address to the curious crowd after the disciples received the Holy Spirit on Pentecost (Acts 2:14-36).

As an example relevant to the British Isles, Wes told about the 1921 Fisherman’s Revival in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth in Suffolk.  Fishermen from Aberdeen tracking shoals of herring down the North Sea coast visited those towns and the powerful presence of God brought them to repentance. Thus, they returned on fire for God to their various Scottish towns. Mainly because of the terrible weather 1921, was one of the worst herring harvests on record but it was a great year for the harvest of souls, as Michael Marcel notes in his huge resource UK Wells.

So we pray our 21st Century Britain soon sends out fishers for human souls, not just Dover sole.

As below, Isaiah 55:10-11 refers to how the Lord looks after His word of scripture and we may, not presumptuously, expect Him to also watch over rhema words given to today’s prophetical voices and bring about fulfillment in due course. We can think of His ‘Global Prophetical Signalling’ system as enabling those ‘in Jesus’ not only to discern what He’s saying but also to monitor the progress and performance of prophecies.

“…My word 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.” 

Selah…

Comatose cop questions Jesus and is sent back with ‘2 minute’ warning – part 1

As a child living at the height of the Cold War and sometimes watching the slow flight of a delta-wing Vulcan bomber swooping like a menacing hawk over my house in north-east Cheshire, I was only too well aware of the ominous public ‘4-minute Warning’ of incoming nuclear missile strike against Britain. (Popular joke: “Enough time to boil your last egg”!)

So it was especially interesting to note a shorter timescale emerged – with a football motif! – in discussion over this exceptional email coming out of the blue!  Note: ‘code blue’ is the American medical alert for ‘crash’ response to cardiac or respiratory failure.

From Marty Breeden, Virginia, USA:

Richard,

Enjoyed your page and wanted to share this with you…….my testimony

I’m a full time Deputy Sheriff with the Page County Sheriff’s office in Page County, Virginia.

I died on July 17, 2015. I went totally “CODE BLUE” from Acute Respiratory Failure as a result of a CO2 buildup in my system from a “perfect storm” of health issues. Within 48 hours I would go “CODE BLUE” again. ALL this can be fully medically documented.

When I coded, I went through a tunnel. When I came out, I heard the Voice of the Lord. He said, “My church does not really believe I’m coming back soon!” He said it over and over and over again. Each time with more passion and more urgency.

Finally, I said, “Lord, we read about it, sing about it, preach about it, study it, we believe you’re coming back soon!”

The Lord responded and the timbre of His voice changed…..He said, “My church does NOT really believe that I’m coming back soon, for if they did, they would not be living as they are!”

……..Again, His voice changed and He spoke with even greater Urgency……He said, “I AM coming back soon and my church is NOT ready!”

Later, I would have another similar vision that would be confirmed in a miraculous way, this too about the Lord’s soon return.

I was instructed to come back and “Tell those things which you have heard!”

I’ve made a wonderful recovery; I’m back now full time as a Deputy Sheriff in Page County, Virginia. I’m married with 2 daughters. Everywhere I share my entire story, souls get saved and people rededicate their lives to the Lord.

Blessings, feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Deputy Marty Breeden

(If this video image is blank on Internet Explorer, click link to Trunews YouTube.)

In response to my query, Marty sent a link to the above video and told me his true story has featured on many US outlets to an audience of over 300,000.  It rang a bell and so I checked with James Bailey at Z3 News. He’d published Marty’s full account, which you can read in Part 2 of this post.

Thank you too to friends’ email that pertinently quotes Gandhi as rebuking Christians too:

“You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilisation to pieces, turn the world upside down and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of literature.”

Notes:

God’s GPS pingback: Australia>UK>USA then 2 back!

WOW, what can I say about yesterday! Simply being a messenger and seeing the Lord ‘connect the prophetic dots’ is utterly humbling. All I did was bat something from one side of the globe to the other. Here’s what happened:

Digital Globe with Hand by Watcharakun

After blogging about being bitten by two days’ Lion Bites I took lunch and afterwards found a most apposite email had arrived from Australia. So I re-published a word given to one of Australia’s Prophetic Council, Lana Vawser, as my previous post.

After whizzing it into cyber-space I gave it no more thought as I resumed my main focus …BUT…

I returned to corresponding with a deputy sheriff about his true story. The ball was in my court and I popped in a link to my ‘hot-off-the-press’ of the word Lana Vawser brought, in case it may help regarding their new fellowship in the Shenandoah Mountains, Virginia.

Almost by return – like an internet ‘ping’ – I got this reply: “Richard, I NEEDED THAT WORD!!! Thank you for sending it and she is SPOT on…(because)”

And within the hour yet another ‘Ping’!

This time a real pingback from a blog well over ‘the Pond’ on the Kansas-Missouri border (?), “This morning as I was reviewing a message from Richard Barker he shared a vision from Lana Vawser. I have to mention that here because her vision seems to be in tandem with something I was given three weeks ago, today. It seemed like there were some overlapping/similarities….” (see Multiple Confirmations).

Much as I’ve mused over how the Lord speaks His mind to born-again believers around the world, especially those entrusted with the prophetical office, in my noticing how pieces from His Invisible Jigsaw fall into place it’s also as though their action is the equivalent of the cyber-space GPS.

That is, the Lord has His ‘satellites’ in the ‘heavenlies’ and uses GPS (Global Positioning System – God’s Prophecy System) or, as I call it, Global Prophecy Signalling.  Hence, my occasional examples of the Lord’s GPS.

‘Violent’ Kingdom breakthrough, seizing God-given opportunities – part 1

Hand and Puzzle Pieces by Anusorn P. Nachol, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net

The violence referred to in this post is not that of physical assaults upon and wars against individuals and people groups, as depicted daily in the media, but of human and natural processes of force, exertion and upheaval that bring about change and growth. It’s the kind of violence I learned about as a ‘newbie’ investigating Jesus Christ’s answer to a question about John the Baptist and the Kingdom of heaven.

This post was started a week ago and I inserted the above image but thought its quantity doesn’t match the data pieces I’m blogging about. Therefore, this morning I’m delighted to discover blogger RJ Dawson’s latest reply to his readers’ congratulations upon the 6th anniversary of Real Christianity. Without realising it, this goes direct to the very heart of my subject as one of those awaited pieces – thank you Lord!  RJ writes, with emphasis mine,

“The Lord gave us a picture one time of a morning sheepfold all crammed into close quarters for the night wanting to get out into the dewy field and into freedom. Once the shepherd opened the enclosure out they streamed. This is a picture of what must happen. Too many Christians have grown used to the protective safe space that certainly has its place in times of danger, and resist breaking out.”

I’m grateful for his expanding upon this in the Comments to this post, as below.

[To continue as drafted…] As intimated in my introduction to last Wednesday’s Lion Bite on ‘new boldness’ I wish to pick up on the previous week’s two posts on 2017 being a year of breakthrough.

Their re-posting was unplanned because I was simply checking matters upon return home and then continuing with my break from blogging. Nevertheless, I’d been impressed to post an extensive prophecy on 2017 from Cindy Jacobs’ team that had been languishing ready for publication – a quick task, BUT I just had to insert a short connective scripture!

Little did I know an appropriate message was going to be heard over that weekend on a similar topic; definitely not unusual, just another ‘piece’ of the Lord’s ‘invisible jigsaw’ dropping into place!

These are the relevant paragraphs of a fortnight ago today, starting with the sub-head:

APOSTOLIC COUNCIL OF PROPHETIC ELDERS’ WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2017 THE YEAR OF THE BREAKTHROUGH (click to read the whole paper)

2017: The Breakthrough Year

“The One who breaks open will come up before them; they will break out. Pass through the gate, And go out by it; their king will pass before them, with the Lord at their head.”
Micah 2:13 (NKJV)

Immediately preceding that title and passage, and by way of introduction, I connected it into the New Testament with the following:

‘The opening verse is directly related to Mathew 11:12 on Jesus saying “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force”, according to David Bivin and Roy Blizzard in their Understanding The Difficult Words of Jesus (1983 page 123!). HA, on now checking the NKJV my bible opens right at the notes on that very verse headed, ‘Taking It By Force’!  The inescapable conclusion of this instance of ‘serendipity’ is: the ‘Author of the Bible’ is pointing His finger at both related verses!

Now, I’d add the Lord may want to point also to what was taught on the next Sunday too! (See Part 2.)

First, however, we should consider those verses and, with permission, I quote notes on verses and extract from ‘Kingdom Dynamics’ in Spirit-Filled Study Bible, editor Jack Hayward (emphases mine).:

vv11:12 – Though the Greek here is somewhat difficult to translate, the idea is that ‘the kingdom of heaven’, which Jesus set up as a powerful movement or reign among men (‘suffers violence’), requires of them an equally strong and radical reaction. ‘The violent’ who then take ‘it by force’ are people of keen enthusiasm and commitment who are willing to respond to and propagate with radical abandonment the message and dynamic of God’s reign (see Luke 16:16). This is an allusion to the messianic nature of Jesus’  ministry and to those who are participating in it…Jesus is likely recalling Micah 2:12-13 where the prophet speaks of the deliverance of the people from exile through the activity of the shepherd-like Messiah.

Taking It By Force, Conflict & the Kingdom – J.W.H. writes, “Jesus asserts the “violence” of the kingdom. The text’s unique grammatical construction doesn’t make it clear if the kingdom of God is the victim or if, as the kingdom advance sin victory, it does so through violent spiritual conflict and warfare. But the context does! Jesus’ references to the non-religious style of John and the confrontational, miraculous ministry of Elijah teach that the Kingdom of God makes its penetration by a kind of violent entry opposing the human status quo…The upheaval caused by the kingdom of God is not caused by political provocation or armed advance. It is the result of God’s order shaking relationships, households, cities and nations by the entry of Holy Spirit’s power working in people.’

Matt 11:12 ‘difficult’ common Greek translated literally reads, ‘the kingdom of-the heavens is-being-forced and the forceful-ones are-snatching her’. Note, Greek tense for ‘snatching’ is ‘harpazousin’, which reminds me of the renowned ‘rapture’ reference in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 to believers being caught up to meet the Lord upon His return!  Therein, the Greek is ‘harpagesometha’ – literally, ‘shall-be-being-snatched’. In other words, ‘seized’.

Those ‘verses of violence’ seem to contradict the rest of Jesus’ teaching. In their thesis Bevin and Blizzard refer to a ‘midrash’ (old rabbinic interpretation) on Micah 12-13 that focuses upon the ‘breach-maker’ (poretz), who isn’t the same as the ‘king’ and ‘LORD’. They suggest Jesus was referring to that understanding and the translation of His words is better as “The Kingdom of Heaven is breaking forth [not ‘suffering violence’] and every person in it is breaking forth”

‘Two tremendous things are now happening simultaneously: the Kingdom is bursting forth in to the world (like water from a broken dam) and individuals within the Kingdom are finding liberty and freedom’. John the Baptist is the breach-maker for he makes the breach in the rock-fence of the sheep pen (per Micah 2:12) is the Elijah of Micah 3:1 and 4:5-6 who goes before the Lord to prepare the way for Him. So, Jesus then follows John and leads His sheep through the gate – the iconic, powerful image of breakthrough.

Since then the Kingdom – the Lord and His sheep – has been breaking out. ‘Though Jesus does not refer directly to His own role as shepherd leading the sheep out, no listener could possibly misunderstand Jesus’ stunning assertion – I am the LORD’. The authors opinion, therefore, is that the Kingdom is not futuristic but has been in existence since that time!

So far, of the illustration’s five jigsaw pieces we have a sequence of four, viz:

  1. first of 2 posts published a fortnight ago today in between posts on my testimony into which I insert Matt 11:12 referring to a book influential to my walk, especially as post refers to ‘2:12’ (which related to a validation aspect of my personal testimony),
  2. second post on 2017 as year of breakthrough, this time for the United Kingdom,
  3. A week later whilst blogging on item 1, my bible falls open at the verse’s notes,
  4. Today I find R.J. Dawson’s prophetic picture relating to Micah 2:12-13.

In Part 2 we consider the fifth piece, but which preceded the fourth and like it and the first came from over ‘the Pond’ – seizing God-given opportunities.

President Donald Trump and the “42” (part 2)

This valuable insight offered by Mark Davidson is highly significant in my humble opinion – and could support not only the idea of Britain and America as the prophesied ‘Tarshish’ (and he reinforces my remarks on Obama in another recent post), but also my blogging on the revival of our spiritual and political/commercial bond (here and here).

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

So Barack Obama, supposedly the forty-second person to be constitutionally elected president of the United States, is now a former president. He has been replaced by the next person to be president, Donald Trump.

In this earlier post I suggested a theory I heard years ago about the Bible’s use of the number forty-two and its seeming application to the leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States. Ancient Israel and Judah had a total of forty-two kings before changing form and losing their independence.

In the case of the United Kingdom, William the Conqueror was the first monarch of Britain in its current form and the current reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is the forty-second monarch.

And in the case of the United States, President Obama was supposedly the forty-second constitutionally elected person and that was going to be it for the United States in its current form…

To recap, my cyber-friend in Tucson, Tony Puccio, recently published two dreams about Big Ben clock tower six months after having an alarming one of its collapse, as here. On 12th February he wrote about its sequel, which I re-blogged at Big Ben and Midnight.:

“I’ve had several dreams concerning Great Britain.  The latest was last night. In the dream I could see Big Ben and the hands on the clock’s face were both in the 12 o’clock position. I remember hearing the bong of the clock’s Bell sounding as well.”

Then last Saturday morning Tony writes as follows:

“…The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging.  Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.  

“It’s my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening hence the dreams about Big Ben. “

I re-blogged that on Monday with preface, ‘it may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will’, and we shared our thoughts on Tony’s comments thread.

BREXIT BILL & SCOTLAND’S PROBLEM

My remark anticipated the ‘spanner’ Scotland’s obdurate First Minister and leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) Nicola Sturgeon could throw into the ‘works’ demanding that nation holds a second independence referendum before Brexit, in view of her desire for Scotland to separate from the United Kingdom and remain within the European Union.

As most readers will be familiar with this thorn in our side I won’t cover this in any depth, but here are this week’s front-page headlines with ‘strap-line’ from The Daily Telegraph :

  • Monday 13th: Sturgeon’s last-ditch bid to ruin Brexit – Scottish leader ready to derail Article 50 vote with threat of new referendum date (online here)
  • Tuesday 14th: The new battle for Britain – PM rules out new independence vote before Brexit and delays Article 50 (online here)
  • Wednesday 15th: Sturgeon abandons bid to stay in the EU – Campaign for referendum wobbles as poll shows most Scots are now Eurosceptics (online here).

I offer no opinion other than, “May Your kingdom come, Father, and Your will be done on our patch of earth as it is in heaven” – amen.

Big Ben arises with continual ‘wake up’  

Mulling over the recent midnight theme, including the dream from o’er Pond, I’m struck by Saturday’s follow-up from Tony that may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will (see Telegraph link and Big Ben & Midnight – the dream to which Tony refers was flagged up in Visitation Time – I Am Coming With My Power Like Fire).

My Dreams and Visions

In August of 2016 I had the following vision.

I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile. Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged
The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.

It’s…

Prophetic Scripture Update #1: Ezekiel – the UK AND USA as western Tarshish

Nero_6Morning coffee revelation again! It was Friday 24th February when I spotted this inside-page headline in my paper’s world news section: ‘Commonwealth Invites US to Join the Club’.  I grasped the unusual significance of this news immediately because it relates to a questionable claim I’d read 30 years ago as a non-Christian and popped into the ‘pending tray’. It’s the notion of ancient Britain possibly being biblical Tarshish.

Invisible HandThe Invisible Hand, written from a secular standpoint by Victor Dunstan, gave me an intriguing introduction to Bible prophecy. What actually happened simultaneously with my fanning through its pages after receiving it as a gift was jaw-dropping. As a consequence, 15 years later I began following world events to watch whether or not they tallied with biblical prophecy – AND echoes of that mid-1980’s news re-appeared decades later on a couple of anniversaries of this blog – see The ‘Invisible Hand’ Reappears at Another Anniversary: Spooky! for the full story.

So this recent news I read a fortnight ago reminded me of one of the author’s claims and, although revisited during the EU Referendum, I’d certainly give it some credibility now.

MOREOVER, it cleanly clouts Obama’s threat to put “Britain at the back of the queue” in US trade negotiations into oblivion!!

That news in the Telegraph’s broadsheet is textual only, but Google gives a well-illustrated version of the print-copy in the (Canadian) National Post’s In a Project Backed by The Queen, Commonwealth Invites the U.S. to Become ‘Associate Member’. (A report for non-subscribers is now available online asExclusive: United States could become an ‘Associate Member’ of the Commonwealth’, the url for which uses an insightful earlier headline > http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/23/donald-trumps-love-royal-family-may-see-united-states-join-commonwealth/ – note: does not open in new window)

And surprise surprise! The Canadian version leads with a photo of Donald Trump and Theresa May – in her “Redcoats are coming” outfit – walking together along the White House’s colonnades. (Puzzled by my reference, then see Fulfilled Prophecies #16.)

How exceptionally appropriate is this news relating to the improved – and revolutionary! – relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States, especially when taking a possible Biblical aspect into the equation!

[Also very timely was Dr Sharon Stone’s subsequent mentoring day in Windsor on Jesus making Himself known as King in this season and that we’re coming into areas of His rule and our own role in dominion and authority. She defines ‘king’ as “The king whose word is law and obeyed is one who rules”, and in referring to George III and to Bonaparte, said “Revolutions come when people don’t listen to law eg. 2016’s insurrection in the USA and what happened here and in us, turning us toward heaven’s rule”.  I’d already drafted the previous paragraph’s wording – so maybe her points act as confirmation?]

How can this news relate to the Bible, you may ask?

emmaus-group-tarshishDo you recall reading on this blog about a possible connection between ancient Tarshish and Britain, especially with our global community of nations, or ‘common-wealth’?  Of these our previous colonies in North America are some of the oldest.

Check A Biblical Basis for Brexit, courtesy of The Emmaus Group, for a lucid case for the British Isles as the western descendants, if not original location, of ancient Tarshish.

Their case is based upon these texts: Ezekiel 19:2-3, 38:13, Isaiah 2:16, 66:19, Psalm 72:10. The Invisible Hand also has Jonah 1:3 but adds Ezekiel 27:12-26, Isaiah 60:9, 1 Chron 9:21 (with 1 Kings 9:26-27) and Psalm 48:7.  (Verses shown bold are usually regarded as prophetic, especially pertaining to the ‘Gog-Magog’ war.)

Note that the period in question is about 3,000 years ago, centuries before Classical Greece and Rome became established and later became imperial superpowers across the Near East. At this time of the ‘Greek Dark Ages’, the enterprising, sea-faring port of Tyre and its Phoenician civilisation had spread across the Mediterranean.

My study bible offers a noteworthy point on the geographical location of Tarsish under prophetic Ezekiel’s ‘Lament for Tyre’ (chapter 27) which states, (v12) “Tarshish was your merchant…(13) Jaban, Tubal and Meshech were your traders…” So too were Togarmah, Dedan, Syria, Judah and theland of Israel, Damascus, Dan and Javan, Arabia and Kedar, Sheba and Raamah, Haran, Canneh, Eden…Assyria and Chilmad. The footnote reads:

27:12-24 The most complete and extensive list of trading communities found anywhere in scripture. The list moves geographically from the west to east and shows an accurate knowledge of the commercial activity of that day.

27:12 Tarshish is generally identified as a city or territory in the Western Mediterranean, perhaps Tartessus in Spain.

In the Royal Commonwealth Society’s plan to open a branch in New York, its director Michael Lake would welcome bringing the United States into the fold as an “associate member”. To quote the report:

‘The advantage of the Commonwealth, Mr Lake said, is that it operates less formally than governments, as a loose arrangement that is furthered by common values and culture.

“It works because companies find it easier and more congenial to work in Commonwealth countries,” he said…”The Queen is our patron and I see her from time to time, and she makes it clear to me that the Commonwealth is a priority to her…”.’

It would, he says, further Britain’s ties with America with whom we have a common lingual bond and develop new connections between us – AND, in my humble opinion, may bring about a fulfillment of Old Testament scripture!

In fact, it would enable the ‘Bridge over the Pond’ already carrying Godly spiritual ‘traffic’ to bear business and political ‘traffic lanes’ as well.

Soon, the ‘lioness’ may have her ‘young lions’ all ‘present and correct’ in preparation for the prophesied End-times.
