Author tells me about watching numerically for Messiah’s Return

In our conversations this week about ‘watching’ our times according to Bible prophecy and his new book Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, Jonathan Hill tells me,

“As you know, I’m frequently considering dates and events and looking to discern their biblical relevance, as part of my ministry in the Body of Christ. The dates, which you graciously gave me a while back (of significant events in your life), often come to the surface more often than others! As such please bear with me over the next few paragraphs, as I think these thoughts may be important.

“Has the Body of Christ really considered what exactly the church is looking for in the biblical ‘watch’? Is just being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’ sufficient? The assertion from Jesus to the church at Sardis was to watch because the ‘hour of His return’ is ‘unexpected’ and not revealed on the surface of scripture. They were personally exhorted by Jesus to watch for His return (at the Rapture) otherwise He would come upon them as a thief. The ‘watch’ is therefore more than just about being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’ and specifically about the ‘hour of His return’.

“Revelation 3:3 (NKJV) Remember therefore, how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore, if you will not watch I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you”

“If the biblical ‘watch’ is more than just being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’, what is it? This is the essence of the book ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’, because God has embedded (in the Bible) a simple mathematical pattern of triangular and pyramid numbers which perfectly depict God’s interventions across the ages.

“What is extraordinary is that these simple patterns are now appearing with pinpoint accuracy between globally witnessed events, especially those which relate to the transition of power away from the Gentiles in favour of Israel. Nebuchadnezzar’s seven times (Daniel 4:16) is up and currently in transitional closure with a short burst of anti-Christ at the end!

“So, Messiah’s command to watch must not be lightly esteemed. Biblically, the Lord has secrets (Amos 3:7, Daniel 2:22, Daniel 2:28) and scripture encourages (with ‘glory’, see Proverbs 25:2) the revelation of previously concealed truth. As such, all believers should consider the biblical watch. Alongside the spiritual gifts which the Lord has given to His church, let us not neglect that which the Lord has already placed in scripture. After all, spiritual gifts need to be weighed against scripture – not the other way around.

“Let me know what you think, I’d be very interested in your perspective. Above all else, be mightily encouraged in your work.”

I exclaim, “Ace, Jonathan!  Would you allow me to share all or part of your very valuable thoughts?  My reaction is, ‘Bang on!’

“As for the final paragraph’s ‘secrets’, please note a prophecy given me in final para of Why Write/blog? On 21 May 2009, renowned prophecy teacher Isabel Allum walked straight up to Nina and myself and divulged what she discerned of each of us. Of me,

“An impartation like Daniel had is going to come into you and you will start understanding the ‘riddles’ of the Lord in a different way – the gift of interpretation itself, as Daniel and Joseph had, is going to come to you and God is going to open up your understanding to hear from heaven.”

Then I update my author friend, “You may know that I’ve re-run blogs on your previous book and the two ‘escape’ situations as being part of a fulfillment of prophecy? I’ve now re-run my few on ‘watching’ as a lead-in to announcing your latest book, to be followed by its ‘Watch’ updates.”

He responds,

“Yes, I’ve noticed your rerun of earlier blogs, which have been excellent!  Also, very encouraging about your Daniel prophecy – the correlation of ‘understanding’ and ’62’, together with the ‘number of years’ of Daniel 9:2, is fascinating.

“There is more detail in ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’ on pages 297 to 300, because the Hebrew gematria of the 120 (itself an important triangular and pyramid number) satraps (see Daniel 6:1) which Darius the Mede sets over his whole kingdom, is ‘2016’ (the 63rd triangular number).

“As confirmation of relevance to the current Body of Christ, remember that Daniel is, in part, a type of the church. Where was Daniel when his three colleagues were ordered into the furnace (stoked up to 7 times its normal heat – Daniel 3:19 – read 7 years tribulation for Israel) by King Nebuchadnezzar?

“Daniel was nowhere to be seen because, in type, Daniel had been raptured before the Tribulation!”

So I cannot wait to get into the book….but it would make a good Christmas present?

Drone warfare an instant enabler for the Persian Ram? — 2nd of 4 ‘Signposts’

One major unknown about the Second Signpost that the Bible is silent about, is how it could start. I believe coordinated attacks by drones are now the likely path. In Daniel Revisited and on this website, we have seen that the loss of oil production is the main factor to debilitate the west. (The second […]

Fulfilled Prophecy #13.15 – Germany and the Eurozone ARE shaking!

Following on from Simon Braker’s dream of European nations being bricks in a game of jenga, with reference to Britain being warned to “Come out!” (Fulfilled Prophecy #13.1), within days of Germany’s Angela Merkel having a 3rd bout of ‘prophetical’ shaking when meeting Finland’s PM, Veronika West heard the following (Facebook):

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE NATION OF GERMANY…!

EARLY HOURS OF THIS MORNING THE SPIRIT OF GOD WOKE ME TO PRAY FOR THE NATION OF GERMANY AND FOR THE GREAT SHAKING THAT IS COMING!!!

As I began to pray I saw the Chancellor Angela Merkel and I heard the Spirit say, “SHAKING, SHAKING, SHAKING, FOR THIS IS A SIGN OF THE SHAKING THAT IS COMING TO THIS NATION, WATCH! FOR I AM SHAKING THE GOVERNMENT, I AM SHAKING THE ECONOMY AND I AM SHAKING MY CHURCH IN THE NATION OF GERMANY, WATCH! FOR GERMANY WILL BE SHAKEN AND IT WILL BE SHIFTED IN THIS NEXT SEASON, MY SHAKING SHALL HUMBLE THE PROUD AND BRING DOWN THOSE WHO ARE STIFF-NECKED, WATCH AND PRAY! FOR GERMANY SHALL BE SHAKEN 3 TIMES, YES! 3 TIMES,!! FOR I SHALL SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE THIS LAND, PRAY MY SHAKING SHALL REVERBERATE THROUGHOUT THE NATIONS OF EUROPE, WATCH THE UNITED NATIONS, WATCH THE EUROPEAN UNION, GERMANY WILL BE SHAKEN TO ITS FOUNDATIONS, says the Spirit of God.

“BERLIN, UKRAINE AND FINLAND WILL SHAKE…!

As I cried out to God for Mercy He said, “WATCH BERLIN, WATCH FINLAND, WATCH UKRAINE, WATCH FOR A SHAKING SHALL COME TO THESE NATIONS IN THE DAYS AHEAD.” As I heard those words I saw the Nation of FINLAND BEING SHAKEN, THE NATION OF UKRAINE and then I saw a shaking in BERLIN…! WATCH AND PRAY…!

EUROPEAN & GLOBAL SHAKING – THE FINER DETAIL

AND today, over three weeks later, comes news that, ‘Recession fears returned to stalk global markets once more yesterday after Germany suffered its biggest factory slump in a decade and a wave of central bank stimulus stoked fears of a race to the bottom in a brewing currency war…(AND) Fears of a brewing currency war escalated after New Zealand’s central bank slashed interest rates to a record low of 1pc…(NZ’s) deeper-than-expected cut knocked its currency more than 2pc against the US dollar to its lowest level in more than three years and dragged Australia’s currency briefly down to a 10-year low. The move was “a further sign that central banks seem fixed on a race to the bottom” as tensions over weakening currencies surge…’ (emphases mine).

With his thorough and incisive analysis the DT’s international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard delivers this masterly in-depth article (click first image to read in full but note, not in new window):

These extracts are the more pertinent points relating to the EU (emphases mine):

‘…The world’s G2 economies are in a state of cold war. Europe is the chief collateral casualty. The eurozone will soon pay – or is already paying – the price of an economic model that is highly geared to the global trade cycle and depends on world consumption to make up for its structural inability to generate demand.  

‘Mario Draghi, the ECB’s president, says the eurozone’s manufacturing recession is getting “worse and worse”.  Germany’s industrial output fell a further 1.5pc in June and is down more than 5pc over the past year. “We would characterise today’s industrial production report as devastating,” said Carsten Brzeski [Wed 7th] from ING. There is no relief in the forward-looking indicators. The Ifo Institute’s gauge of production plans for the next three months has crashed to the lowest since the depths of the eurozone crisis in 2012.

‘European companies are caught in the Sino-US cross-fire…sales are now caught up in Chinese counter-tariffs. It is a key reason why Daimler has issued four profit warnings over the past year. The trade war is compounding the electrification shock that has thrown Europe’s car industry into seizure…’

Europe cannot handle so many shocks. It already has one foot in deflation. The ECB has lost monetary traction. Interest rates are minus 0.4pc and are close to the “reversal rate”, where further cuts become contractionary through a squeeze on bank margins…’

‘The ECB could in theory resort to helicopter money to fund government spending, but this would violate the Maastricht Treaty and run afoul of Germany’s constitutional court.

‘Euroland’s only defence is “new deal” fiscal stimulus – but this too is made impossible by the rigid legal and ideological structure. It meets the Stability Pact and the machinery of fiscal restraint.

‘Europe’s leaders cannot do much about Trump, China, and global deflation, but they can at least avert an unnecessary Brexit shock by changing the Withdrawal Agreement. This is not to say they will. Dominic Cummings is right to warn that the EU may opt for economic self-harm to achieve its religious objectives.

‘Yet criticism of the Barnier method is growing louder, especially in Germany. The Commission’s feet are at last being held to the fire. Gabriel Felbermayr, president of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, says the strategy of forcing Britain to jump through divorce hoops before trade talks could begin was a serious error and has led to a dead-end.

“The EU must finally start to think strategically. This means giving up the dogma of the inviolable four freedoms and offering the UK, and likewise Switzerland, the maximum possible economic integration that is possible without political union,” he said.

‘..The EU’s Brexit goal until now has been to close ranks and uphold doctrinal purity.  It shoved aside those Europeans who called for a flexible Continental Partnership as a model for the EU’s future ties with the near abroad. The higher imperative was to make a point. But the economic dangers have now reached such a level that an additional – and easily avoidable – knife-fight with Borisian Britain risks blowing up the EU project entirely. At what point does the EU’s self-preservation reflex trump ideology?

Mr Varadkar could climb down from his nationalist tree and accept an all-Ireland farm deal, with a softish border for the remaining goods trade (tiny in volume), cleared by trusted trader schemes far from the front line.

‘Or he can bring about the no-deal he decries, and on the hardest of terms with 50,000 lost jobs or more, and be forced to erect physical border infrastructure by the EU in diplomatically horrible circumstances under threat of expulsion from the EU customs union. Moreover, as he says, the ordeal will go on, and on, and on. Should he change his mind and opt for compromise, Berlin, Paris, and other EU capitals will have the justification they need – and some now want – to reopen the Withdrawal Agreement.

‘If the Taoiseach denies them this graceful way out, then remember the Juncker dictum: “We have instruments of torture in the basement.”

Also note well Ambrose’s earlier eye-opener EU sharpens torture tools as Swiss showdown escalates into energy war, which includes this alarming example of its totalitarian nature:

‘..Brussels is preparing other tools of suffocation. There are threats to withdraw mutual recognition for exports of medical equipment.  This has the character of a creeping blockade. “In theory the EU could cut off access to almost anything,” said Pieter Cleppe from Open Europe in Brussels.

“It is a worrying precedent that a country can be cut off like this for purely-political motives when it has not violated its obligations,” he said.

‘Switzerland’s problems have been growing ever since the Brexit referendum. The country has become a victim of proxy diplomatic warfare, as made clear in leaked comments last month by the EU commissioner in charge of bilateral talks, Johannes Hahn…’

Maybe the EU is the fourth beast of Daniel’s dreadful vision, as recorded in chapter 7 of his Old Testament Book. Therefore, EU: prepare to meet thy decreed doom.

10 years ago: Not many people know…

In my blog of 28th February I commemorated that date 10 years ago when I started emailing friends about topical events connected to End-times prophecies in the Bible. That post tells how my personal Bible metaphorically exploded in my face like a ‘time-bomb’, impressing upon me that “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”

My next mailing got circulated on 1st April 2009 as two emails, copies of which maybe read below by enlarging their images (apologies for difficulty with legibility):

Main Points of Part 1:
  • G60 Summit and massive subrogation of American sovereignty in which the mighty Dollar is made subservient to the European Union.
  • more evidence for the move towards New World Order?
  • EU’s High Representative Solana threatens Israel’s PM Netanyahu!

Vision of The Rock in Parliament

Have just received the following email from one of my lead contributors of material on the EU. Dave Chapman informs me,

“We had a gathering here last Thursday and one sister who was very encouraged from the ministry time had a waking picture/dream the next morning. She is a trusted friend and  woman of God. I felt it to be quite significant and have her permission to send on to you for encouragement and use if you choose.”

The Vision:

‘This morning as I awoke, God gave me a picture of a small rock that was thrown into the meeting chamber of the Houses of Parliament and it knocked the Mace to the floor. The rock was grey and spherical but I had the word ‘cornerstone’.

‘The rock then continued to grow and crushed the pews where the MPs sit and then it outgrew the chamber and crushed the walls of the Houses or Parliament to the extent that people who came to see the Houses of Parliament could see the rock poking out of the building.’

The Explanation:

‘The Rock is Jesus and God is not only shifting and shaking Parliament but He is also dismantling it and He will rebuild it. The rebellion and disobedience over Brexit has caused this and He is humbling Parliament and taking over this and the UK through our rebellion and disobedience.

‘The new Parliament and His glory through it and this nation will be attractive to many over the World. This will go out from the UK – both His rule and reputation over what He’s done here to the nations in parallel with the Gospel.’

Dave adds, “The Mace in Parliament is the symbol of royal authority and without it neither House can meet or pass laws. The House of Commons’ mace is a silver gilt ornamental club of about five feet in length, dating from the reign of Charles II.”

So we praise and thank you Lord for all You’re doing and about to do…

This vision immediately brings to mind king Nebuchadnezzar’s very troubling dream of a huge statue demolished by a small rock, and of OT prophet Daniel’s Holy Spirit-inspired full account of the secret dream and its meaning interpretation.:

“…You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth….”

Veronika West: pray for President Trump in the lions’ den

Posted approx 8am today on her Ignite Ireland Ministries facebook, Veronika West reports the following, which as with all prophetical matters is for your weighing and discernment with the Lord and scripture:

AN URGENT DREAM CONCERNING PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP; 
“WATCH FOR THE DEN HAS BEEN PREPARED AND THE BLOOD-THIRSTY LIONS LIE IN WAIT””…!

I come to you today, it’s 3am in the morning I have woken from a powerful dream concerning President Donald Trump where I was shown a GREAT UPHEAVAL THAT IS COMING IN THE DAYS AHEAD, in this dream I found myself standing in a dark dungeon type place and the SMELL OF THE AIR IN THAT PLACE IS HARD TO DESCRIBE BUT IT WAS THE SMELL OF BLOOD AND OF LIONS (having been brought up as a child in a Wildlife Conservation I KNOW THE SMELL OF LIONS), it is a SMELL SO DISTINCT THAT IT IS A SMELL THAT IS UNMISTAKABLE…! As I stood in that dark place my nostrils filled with the smell of (blood and acid like tones), I BEGAN TO FEEL FEAR RISE UP WITHIN ME, then suddenly I saw a bright light appear round about me and an Archangel of the Lord stood before me in the dream and spoke to me saying, “FEAR NOT, for you have been brought to this place for what is about to take place”, as I listened suddenly the dream shifted I was taken high above the WHITE HOUSE WHERE I WAS SHOWN A SMALL OPEN WINDOW (which faced SOUTH) AND AS I LOOKED THROUGH THE OPEN WINDOW I SAW PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP KNELT DOWN UPON HIS KNEES LOOKING UP TO HEAVEN, and as I looked at him I saw A GREAT BATTLE TAKING PLACE OVER THE LAND and, as I watched him cry out to the Lord, suddenly I saw the Archangel GABRIEL STANDING ABOVE HIM WITH A FLAMING SWORD LIFTED HIGH ABOVE THE PRESIDENT’S HEAD AND I WATCHED AS THE BLADE OF THE SWORD TOUCHED HIM AS IF HE WERE BEING KNIGHTED and then I saw President Donald Trump STAND TO HIS FEET and suddenly I saw a MANTLE FALL UPON HIM THAT FLOWED LIKE LIQUID GOLD, THE MANTLE OF GOLD COVERED HIM FROM HEAD TO TOE AND I WATCHED AS IT BECAME LIKE A BODY OF IMPENETRABLE ARMOUR, and the Angel of the Lord left him…! (I woke up)

As I woke up my body my covered in sweat and I was praying so loudly in the Spirit that my son was awoken.., as I reassured my son that all was well I began to feel A GREAT URGENCY TO PRAY FOR THE LAND OF AMERICA AND THE PRESIDENT as I began to cry out to the Lord the atmosphere was HEAVY, it felt as if I was WALKING IN THICK SAND, but as I prayed and warred in the Spirit suddenly the Spirit of God spoke to me saying,

“WATCH AND PAY ATTENTION, PRAY PRAY PRAY FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA AND FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP FOR IT SHALL BE LIKE IN THE DAYS OF DANIEL WHEN MY FAITHFUL SERVANT WAS THROWN INTO THE LIONS’ DEN, WATCH! FOR THEY SHALL COME TOGETHER AND THEY SHALL CONSPIRE WITH ONE ANOTHER TO DESTROY THAT WHICH I HAVE DECREED AND THAT WHICH I HAVE DECLARED OVER THE LAND AND THEY SHALL LOOK TO CATCH HIM OUT AND THEY LOOK TO GRAB HOLD OF HIM TO UTTERLY DESTROY HIM, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU THE DEN HAS BEEN MADE READY AND THE HUNGRY LIONS NOW LIE IN WAIT”, says the Spirit of God.

“WATCH AND PRAY CALL A FAST FOR THEY SHALL COME TOGETHER AS ONE FROM THE LEFT AND FROM THE RIGHT, YES! THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO SHALL COME FROM THE RIGHT THAT SHALL SAY, “HOW CAN THIS BE”, BUT I TELL YOU MANY HEARTS WILL BE TURNED COLD BY A STRONG SPIRIT OF LIES AND DECEPTION, YES! EVEN A SPIRIT OF MURDER DWELLS IN THE MIDST OF THEM, FOR THEY HAVE HATCHED A PLAN AND THEY HAVE PUT TOGETHER A PLOT TO OVERTURN AND OVERTHROW THAT WHICH HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED. BUT LISTEN, STAY VIGILANT IN THIS HOUR, WATCH AND PRAY, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU AGAIN, JUST AS THE DAY THEY THREW DANIEL INTO THE LIONS’ DEN SO THEY SHALL THEY COME TOGETHER IN GREAT UNITY AND AUTHORITY IN THIS DAY TO THROW A PRAYING PRESIDENT INTO THE DEN OF HUNGRY LIONS. TELL MY PEOPLE IF THEY WILL LOOK TO ME AND CRY OUT TO ME IN THIS HOUR I SHALL SEND MY ANGELS OF PROTECTION INTO THE MIDST OF THEM, YES! INTO THE STORM OF RISING LIES AND FALSE ACCUSATIONS AND INTO THE MIDST OF THE ROARING LIONS AND THEIR BLOOD-THIRSTY MOUTHS SHALL BE SHUT CLOSED AND THAT WHICH WAS CONCEIVED IN THE WOMB OF DARKNESS SHALL NOT COME TO FULL TERM BUT SHALL SURELY BE FULLY ABORTED AND BROUGHT TO NOTHING”, says the Spirit of God.

“NOW WATCH, FOR I STAND OVER MY WORD TO PERFORM IT IN THIS HOUR AND IN THIS DAY, FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA SHALL SEE MY GLORY AND THEY SHALL SEE MY HAND MOVE IN MIGHTY AND YET MORE MYSTERIOUS WAYS IN THE DAYS AHEAD, FOR I HAVE SET MY SEAL UPON MY SERVANT AND A MANTLE OF KINGSHIP AND HE SHALL BECOME MY TRUMPET FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE IN THE LAND AND NO MAN SHALL TOUCH MY ANOINTED AND LIVE”, says the Spirit of God.

22 biblically-related news headlines in one week!

Within days of New Year’s Day seven years ago I introduced this blog’s first readers to the Watcher in The White House, accredited Christian journalist William Koenig, in Points to Ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles. It was the first of occasional sorties into the nature of Time and the Bible, now collated in this hub – Time: a Primer.

In last Friday’s Eye View from the White House Bill opens his weekly report with…

“22 significant new events that happened this week – This has been an amazing week of prophetic significance with continued final-day alignment activities” and briefly reports upon activities and then enumerates the events as follows:

“The following are news articles that are prophetically significant. Below the news is insight and information regarding Secretary Pompeo’s trip and more news.

  1. Turkey and the Kurds turn to Russia to solve problems sparked by U.S. exit from Syria – Washington Post
  2. Putin and Erdogan agree to hold talks soon, but exact date is not determined – Kremlin – Tass
  3. Erdogan calls for joint Turkish-Russian-Iranian control of US pullout from Syria in face of Moscow’s veto – Debka
  4. Bolton says U.S. Withdrawal from Syria is conditional: National security adviser says pullout depends on assurances Turkey will protect America’s Kurdish allies – Wall Street Journal
  5. Turkey’s Erdogan refuses Bolton meeting, slams Syria withdrawal shift – Axios

  7. Trump prepared to ‘unleash fury’ on Syria, Pompeo says – Jerusalem Post

  19. Jordanian FM to Pompeo: Israel must eventually withdraw from Golan – Times of Israel

  21. Israel-China experts downplay impact of Haifa Port decision – Jerusalem Post
  22. Egypt’s El Sisi Builds Middle East’s Largest Church – CBN.”

Bill doesn’t refer to specific bible prophecies because most of his readership, like mine, is familiar with Old and New Testament prophecies. [Those covering current events in the Middle-East are Daniel 7-8 (the vision of four beasts, the goat and ram), Zecharia 12 (Jerusalem and its enemies) and Ezekiel 36-19 (Gog & Magog) in the main.]

Next, he outlines the points Secretary Pompeo made in his speech in Cairo, which was a sensible turnaround of the seriously flawed one addressed to the whole Muslim world by Obama in 2009. [My critiques of Obama’s Cairo Speech followed by Europe and Two Daniels (ie. the EU) were some of my early emails on end-times.]

Subsequently, Debka reports Sunni Arab leaders are very uneasy about America pulling out of their region in the face of Iranian aggression, but they have to learn to look after themselves – in my opinion they will draw more closely alongside Israel, an alignment that started months ago.  Also, it’s a necessary part of shaking off the shackles of the Obama pro-Iranian legacy.

Bible Update: “Like Pieces of Meat Before Our Teeth” (Daniel 7:5)

Meanwhile ‘back on the ranch’; ie. where my interest in Bible prophecy kick-started 30 years ago upon seeing Iranian forces rehearsal of storming Jerusalem (details here) – Not forgetting this week’s news of Iranian regime’s persecution of Muslim converts to Christ.:

Teaching from “Chronicles”: how Chiastics brings a breakthrough

Mark Davidson, author of ‘Daniel Revisited’ with its ‘Four Signposts’ perspective of that book’s prophecies (overview here), introduces his new book on a fuller and better way of handling prophetic scriptures.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

This is a brief teaching series to point to the breakthroughs shown us in Chronicles. The book itself is much more detailed.

  • Part 1—Introduction: What Is Chiastics and What It Can Do
  • Part 2—How to Read a Chiastic Passage, in Both Its Forms
  • Part 3—What Parallel Form Tells Us
  • Part 4—What Convergent Form Tells Us
  • Part 5—How These Forms Change the Prophecy Landscape

We’ve been taught all our lives to read the words in the Bible (and in all other books), linearly, one after the other, in sentences. This, of course, is logical. We receive knowledge sufficient to allow us to ask Jesus Christ to be our Savior and to commit our lives to Him.

But this is not all the Bible has in store to teach us. Believe it or not, there is more to teach us beyond what is found in linear sentences.

The words have…

Rallying Calls to Prayer – 2: Prophetic Strategy

In The Rallying Cry to Prayer the Cryers write, “We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us; “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, I will show you how to do it.” He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change!”

My friend Neil Mackereth, one of the valued contributors to this blog’s material on the EU and Brexit (as here and here) and author of Signs, wrote to me on Friday with these intriguing insights:

Dear Ginny, Dear Richard,

‘I felt a call to respond to the “frinkle” moment I had on reading your very recent call to prayer. It is truly amazing how themes are developed, by God giving to various people different pieces of the jigsaw.

‘The other morning I woke with the phrase “the darkest hour is just before dawn” in my mind. The conviction that we are now in the most intense time of prophetic fulfillment was very strong, as was the realisation that the return of Jesus (the second advent) will render biblical prophecy obsolete (I know there will be other millennial events to follow but we won’t need the Bible to tell us about them).

‘My thoughts were directed to the urgent need for prayer. I was reminded that the Old Testament prophets were often the lone recipients of God’s guidance for the people. In particular, Daniel saw it as essential to intercede on behalf of the people, to plead for the prophetic fulfillment of the end of 70 years of exile. Also, Elijah saw himself as the sole prophet of God against 450 prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:22)

‘I am convinced that in our “New Testament” times the strategy has changed. Each “prophet” receives an element of a much bigger picture and it requires unity for the jigsaw to be completed. Friends of God live in the stream of prophetic enlightenment and recognise the signs of the times. With information and understanding comes responsibility!

‘Put another way, there are now many “mini-Elijahs” in the Christian community and, by the unifying process of networking, their various prayer groups will become the Elijah church: an essential bedrock which God is establishing in this nation and beyond.

‘Returning to 1 Kings 18, at verse 21 Elijah says “How long will you waver between two opinions” which might well be the mantra for prayer groups today. Do we really believe God is in charge? Do we really believe that God gives us signs (e.g. the EU displaying the “badges” of Babylon)? Do we really believe that God made a covenant with Abraham and his descendants? Answers to these sample questions will influence our views and prayers on God and Mammon, Replacement theology, Brexit and so on.

‘Lastly, it was made clear to me that Christians are not to just sit in the audience watching the play. We are also players (audience participation!) and need to study the script in order to fulfill our roles in the unfolding drama…’

AMEN my friend and how amazingly this fits into what I’ve recently learned, as will be revealed in a video to appear in the next post!

Brexit-EU battles follow Bible history and prophecy – 1: ‘spirit of Herod’ exposed in politics

It’s important not to loose sight of the fuller insights afforded by two related words from the Lord received during Trooping the Colour; one in 2016 only days before the EU-Referendum, the other this year just before Parliament voted on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill.

Troops parading along The Mall on return to barracks after the Trooping the Colour ceremony in Horse Guards Parade (photo BBC iplayer)

Having appeared ‘out-of-the-blue’ in our own house, the first word (“This is My country”) enabled me to recognise the authenticity of the extensive one Veronika West received . Both words bring news of Father’s heart for Great Britain, thereby confirming we’re in His awesome plan.

However, there’s one aspect of that second word we’ve yet to consider, AND it links the European Union, our government and the church to Bible history and prophecy – even bringing a fresh insight to eschatological theory.

Also, I submit that it accounts for the deep, persistently anti-democratic stance of EU-Remainers.

This year’s word came on 9th June and Veronika posted video-cum-notes entitled, A Divine Convergence, a Trooping of the Colours, the (Fox) Spirit of Herod over the Land, of which I quote extracts below and underline points for consideration:

She was told, “Daughter Look and See for the Spirit of Herod seeks to destroy and annihilate the Vision and Destiny of this Nation, WATCH AND PRAY! for this cunning, crafty and treacherous Spirit is now operating over the Government and the Church in this Nation”! …

…He then likened the Houses of Parliament to a HEN HOUSE and said, “Just as a fox comes to the hen house under the cover of darkness to scatter, to steal, to kill and to destroy, so the fox has come to the Houses of Parliament in this Nation”.

The Holy Spirit quickened her to read Luke 13:31-32 where Jesus referred to Herod as ‘”that fox” and she explains, “Now as I read that verse, I inquired again from the Holy Spirit what He was showing me and He revealed to me that the ‘Fox’ was prophetically symbolic of the Spirit of Herod that is now operating over the Nation. The Spirit of Herod comes with the purpose and goal of total destruction and annihilation, this cunning and dangerous spirit comes at a time when a people, nation or individual is about to reach full maturity, growth, purpose and Destiny. The Spirit of Herod hates anything good or godly, this treacherous spirit seeks only to kill and destroy destinies that are on the verge of blooming.

‘As I continued praying, I began to see a powerful prophetic parallel unfolding before (me) concerning the Nation and BREXIT. I clearly began to see how this same Spirit of Herod which came against the Destiny of Jesus, John the Baptist, Elijah (operating through Jezebel), Moses and Joseph is now operating over our Government and over the Church in the Nation. This Spirit of Herod is Warring against the people of God in this Nation, and this Treacherous Spirit is contending for the Birthright and Destiny of Great Britain. (This Spirit of Herod is a GREAT THREAT TO THE NATION AT THIS TIME)!”

Drawing her to a close, Holy Spirit repeated but in more detail:

“Daughter just as the fox was seen on parade square in the light of day, out in the open for everyone to see, Watch! as My Spirit of Truth and Righteousness moves to uncover, expose and bring to light the works of wickedness and witchcraft in the land, and Watch! For those who have dishonoured Me and who have turned away and rebelled against My plans and purposes in the Nation, I will cause them to be stripped naked and paraded out in the open before all men, FOR NO LONGER WILL MY JUSTICE AND VINDICATION TARRY IN THIS NATION”!

So, this word reveals that this ‘spirit of Herod’ exhibits a dual-aspect of “operating over the Government and the Church”. In my opinion, it may possibly be identified with one of the satanic ‘trinity’ known in deliverance ministry as the Spirit of Jezebel.

OVER THE GOVERNMENT:

We observed the political aspect of this prophecy start to manifest within days. It was publicly exposed by the Daily Mail (see Today’s Press Scoop Exposes Anti-Brexit Schemers) followed later by The Telegraph’s summary, ‘An Often Baffling Episode in The Brexit Story’. Meanwhile, my scripture trail on the parliamentary plotting brought a surprising insight, which soon got confirmed. The skullduggery continued across the political spectrum and a month later a video summary unwittingly captured the above prophecy’s specific aspect: Mogg ‘Outfoxed’ Remainers To Save Brexit.

Those blogs considered evidence of a ‘spirit of Herod’ operating through people in, or directly connected with, Government. In part 2 we’ll consider its modus operandi within the Church.

Prophetic Parallel

First, however, let’s unpack the “powerful prophetical parallel” Veronika saw between that spirit’s working against the destiny of Old Testament prophets, Jesus’ birth and life and today’s intense, prolonged battles over Britain’s destiny and our leaving the EU.

As in biblical times, this spirit of Herod’s mission would be to constrict any nation that has a holy history in God’s purposes into becoming a vassal state of the ungodly (even satanically directed) modern Roman Empire, and thus stop it moving into its destiny!

Herod ‘the Great’ was ancient Rome’s puppet ruler of its province of Judea and the Jewish people, plus Galilee, Samaria, Idumea, Peraea and territories north-eastward. As recorded in Luke’s historically detailed Gospel, this Herod treacherously told the eastern magi who were searching for new-born Jesus that he wanted to visit and worship the child born to be king of the Jews. But instead, he directed the ruthless massacre of boys under the age of two years! (His sons Herod Antipas inherited Galilee and Archelaus, Judea, but after the latter’s banishment through incompetence in 6 AD it came under the direct control of a procurator responsible to Rome (eg. Pilate).

Therefore, we notice the spirit of Herod’s mission in our day is once again on behalf of a man-made empire founded upon and growing out of the Treaty of Rome (1957) that’s now a large, united federation of European nations, thereby re-establishing a ‘Revived Roman Empire’; as may have been foretold in the Bible’s closing book at Revelation 13:3 (see Footnotes).

That insight enables us to understand the intensely vociferous anti-democracy aim of EU-Remainers, and the dishonesty, betrayal and treachery working within government but now exposed by Prime Minister May’s Chequers Agreement, plus its political fall-out in which many claim this would leave Britain as a vassal state of the EU!!

Moreover whilst I mull it over, Herod started building the magnificent Second Temple in Jerusalem in 19 BC but it wasn’t completed until 64 AD – six years before the Romans destroyed it. That wasn’t so much because the Jews rebelled against Rome, but more from Jesus’ prophetically weeping over the city, because they “did not know the time of your visitation!” (Luke 19:41-44).

Therefore, in considering prophetic parallels, is it fanciful to think that, as the European Economic Community and its subsequent governmental beast, the European Union and its parliament’s modern Tower of Babel, are ruled over by the spirit of Herod then it, too, could follow the destiny of his earlier achievement? That the EU too will fail and fall; be dismantled and destroyed with little left to mark its earlier existence??

I close with realising this is the second ‘scriptural trail’ that’s led to ‘the fall of Babylon’ reference. (The first followed a scriptural remark by Jacob Rees-Mogg MP indirectly related to ‘the fox’, as told here and confirmed later.)

Also, we again note that Bible prophecy and contemporary prophetic word, albeit a different one received November 2015 (here), firmly predict the EU’s eventual fall.

Footnotes:
  • Evangelical theologian John F Walwoord’s The Revelation of Jesus Christ – ‘The Deadly Wound of the Beast’: ’13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.’ John in his vision sees one of the heads of the beast as wounded unto death, and the apparent parallelism is to the slain Lamb, described in 5:6. John further observes that the deadly wound (literally “plague”) is healed and that the entire earth marvels at the beast…The wounding of one of the heads seems instead to be a reference to the fact that the Roman Empire as such seemingly died and is now going to be revived. It is significant that one of the heads is wounded to death but that the beast itself is not said to be dead…The beast is both personal and the empire itself; so also is the head. The revival of the future empire is considered a miracle and a demonstration of the power of Satan.’
  • There’s some debate among scholars as to whether or not this passage, relating as it does to the vision of the fourth beast described in Daniel chapter 7, refers to an empire, nation or to an individual, eg. the Antichrist (per Dr A. Fruchtenbaum).

BREXIT PRAYER ALERT: to cut and cast off the EU’s tentacles

Thank you to my dear friend Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS, for his kind permission to publish the following email of last Monday’s date. It has been shared with intercessors, one of whom makes this sound observation:

“It’s a good Word in that, apart from stirring the intercessors to keep praying, it gives a clear explanation spiritually as to why we need to pray. Some people have not got this yet and think that prophecies should not be ‘political’.”

You may wish to join others in praying as the Lord leads along the lines Neil relates below and to stand with him in making the stated declarations.:

‘Dear Richard,

‘Do hope you and Nina are well and enjoying our exceptional weather.

‘Been having some swirling pictures and thoughts – sorry to dump them on you but do feel called to look for others to join me in prayer on this particular line.

Brexit

‘A few weeks ago (early May 2018) God showed me a picture of the English Channel parted from the centre (Isle of Wight) to Dover in the East and to The Lizard in the West. I asked if this was for an “exodus” and if so, in which direction? The Lord said to look again. I saw revealed on the sea bed what looked like hawsers stretching across the Channel. I decided they must be mooring lines and that we needed to cast them off, as if we were a ship leaving port.

‘The Lord said, “Look again”. I saw that what I’d thought were mooring lines were alive and writhing! The Lord said these are the tentacles of the serpent that seeks to hold Great Britain in the web-like structure of nations that he is creating. The members of the EU have been led into an unholy alliance which seeks to undermine their individuality, and which advocates a federal form of ungodly humanism. Until Brexit, no member state has ever sought to leave the EU – Satan is enraged.

‘What can we do? The Lord said the tentacles must be cut.

‘How? By the word of God that is the sword of the Spirit.

‘Over recent months the Lord has been showing me some insights into the spiritual significance of Winchester as the ancient capital of Britain, and the seat of the only English king to have the sobriquet “Great” (Alfred the Great). Winchester is built on strong biblical foundations and there is a reservoir of spiritual power and authority into which we can tap.

‘The Lord said to pray the word of God over the waters of the River Itchen which flows out from the city of Winchester. The river flows into the Solent and the Isle of Wight acts as a separator that divides the waters to the East and to the West. By the power of God, the water will be a scythe that cuts the tentacles of the serpent.

“So, I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes” (Daniel 9:3). It is clear from Daniel’s prayer that even though we think we know the course we are on, we still need to pray expectations into reality. We don’t know why it should be so, but that it is so is clear from Scripture, history and our experiences. God chooses to involve us in His purposes.

‘The battle is raging in the heavenly realms. As in Daniel 10, princes are fighting to retain their territories and they seek to thwart God’s plans. However, the angels of God are advancing and recovering lands: victory is assured.

‘We have so much to be thankful for, so much has been set in train by God’s design: now we most earnestly pray for God’s mercy and forgiveness, and for the full realisation of the restitution of Great Britain as an independent nation under God.

‘Afternote: I started rationalising my thoughts and applying logic, until I read Oswald Chambers’ devotion yesterday (26 May) “The danger with us is that we want to water down the things that Jesus says and make them mean something in accordance with common sense; if it were only common sense, it is not worth while for Him to say it. The things Jesus says about prayer are supernatural revelations”.

‘Such exciting times!’

Neil

NOTES:
  1. Wikipedia has an interesting remark about the River Itchen, Hampshire: ‘The local chalk aquifer provides excellent storage and filtration and the river has long been used for public water supply. Watercress thrives all along the Itchen valley in its once pristine, crystal-clear waters (symbolic of holy, living water)…’
  2. For the Itchen’s location, zoom over Winchester on Map of British Rivers & Lakes.
