Early readers of Urgent Word for Nations, posted most unusually on a Friday (27th July) may have missed my brief postscript and reply to a reader’s comment four hours later on breaking news of two minor quakes in Israel that same morning. The word brought by Veronika West reads:
“WATCH! FOR THERE IS COMING AN EVEN GREATER SHAKING AND SHIFTING IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WATCH! FOR MOUNTAINS WILL BE UPROOTED AND REMOVED AND THE WATERS OF THE SEAS WILL BE GREATLY STIRRED UP, WATCH! FOR THERE WILL BE MORE EARTHQUAKES, ERUPTIONS AND TSUNAMIS THAT WILL BE SEEN ACROSS THE GLOBE. DAUGHTER WATCH! FOR HEAVEN IS NOW INVADING THE EARTH, WATCH! FOR BEHOLD, I AM PUTTING MY FOOT DOWN UPON THE NATIONS AND THE EARTH WILL SHAKE, SHIFT AND TREMBLE BEFORE ME, YES! WATCH! FOR NOW MY FOOT COMES DOWN UPON THE NATIONS TO CRUSH THE HEAD OF THE SERPENT SPIRIT”!
After publishing that prophecy I saw breaking news on earthquakes, then read some details on World Watch Daily quoting The Jerusalem Post – 3.7 Earthquake Hits Sea of Galilee & Surrounding Area: (emphasis mine):
‘An earthquake measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale was felt in the area of the Sea of Galilee according to the Geophysical Institute of Israel on Friday at 11:52. At first, the earthquake was estimated to measure 4.2 but these reports were later corrected.
‘Dozens of tremors have been felt around northern Israel in recent weeks. Experts in the field believe that the occurrence of a strong earthquake is almost certain and that its impact on various regions of the country will be enormous.’
To ‘watchers’, demonstrations across Israel on 22nd July by lgbt people in protest against not being able to have surrogate parenting is significant, not as they’d suppose but because of their timing. The marches ‘coincided’ with the most solemn day in the Jewish calendar: Tisha B’Av, 9th day of the month of Av, upon which both the first and second Temples were destroyed, although separated by almost five hundred years. No wonder the land has now been shaking for days!
That is, the satanic spirit that usurped the symbolism and meaning of the rainbow, in connection with God’s covenant made after the Flood, has perverted it to a corrupt meaning. Nevertheless, it well serves to confirm the accuracy and application of Jesus’ likening these End-times to “the Days of Noah”! Thus, I’m reminded of my mini-series of insights into global satanic strategy.
SO maybe the Lord is starting to show His displeasure at such unrighteousness!
I’d left the above news unpublished, and referring to it as a fulfilled prophecy is rather premature plus the fact ‘quakes are not so unusual – then came ‘biggies’ in Indonesia!
And yesterday on Koenig’s news-site, I read about further developments along the lines of the prophetic word:
‘Big One’ talk swirls as 69 massive earthquakes hit the Pacific’s Ring of Fire in 48 hours – click to see map/video and article on Fox News, a summary of which reads:
‘A large swath of earthquakes hit the Pacific’s so-called Ring of Fire earlier this week, prompting some to wonder if it is a precursor to the oft-discussed massive earthquake, colloquially known as “the Big One.”
‘Sixty-nine earthquakes, including 16 tremors registering 4.5 or above on the Richter scale, recently hit the area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), which recorded the events but did not issue a warning.
‘Several of the quakes registered significant impacts, including one that hit 5.0 and shook the area on Tuesday morning. Fiji appeared to be the most impacted, as five tremors above a 4.5 magnitude hit the small island.’
Note: USGS map of significant worldwide quakes currently lists 19 in past 30 days but the media report refers to all those which were recorded, ie including minor tremors.
New heresies spring up in the life of the Church from time to time, although on closer examination they turn out to be old heresies slightly reformatted. Jayne Ozanne is a vocal exponent of a gay rights and her approach is a very simple one, but no less perverse for its simplicity She preached recently […]

Now we know what ‘Signs’ we’re watching out for, here’s a couple that are happening nowadays and, regrettably, in too many churches:
Moreover, Sign #6 (Mark 13:8, 12-13) too is appearing as ‘brethren’ in the faith are acting against brethren. Eg., self-styled brothers/sisters in lgbt ‘church’ in Blackpool seeking to ban evangelist Franklin Graham from entering Britain – utterly outrageous!
None of those false brethren have ever done what this renowned Christian and his charity Samaritan’s Purse have done across the world in implementing Sign #1: eg. opening up communist North Vietnam in being officially welcomed by government officials in Hanoi, where he’s preached the gospel to hundreds of churches there!
In Jesus’ apocalyptic letter to the 7 churches in Asia Minor, He spoke of His “hatred of the deeds of the Nicolatians”, a group claiming superior status that permitted idolatry and sexual immorality in Ephesus (Rev 2:6) and especially in Pergamos (Rev 2:14-15); and in Thyatira a Jezebel operated (Rev 2:20-21) where, unless they repented, Jesus would deal direct and severely with their sinfulness!
As sexual sins were sin then, then they’re sin today! Therefore, it’s not unreasonable to realise that leaders/attendees of churches who condone, encourage and practise such sins today are in the very same situation and need to repent earnestly.. In perverting the apostolic and traditional teaching on sexuality and claiming superior ‘moral’ authority to do so, they’re no different to the heretics and gnostics with whom the early church was in deep dispute. (I was involved in all that before being saved – “I’m Free!” refers.)
This topic will be continued in the next post where we’ll read Revd Dr Gavin Ashenden’s thorough rebuttal of such modern deceptive doctrines > click to continue reading >
To quote Christian Concern on his piece:
‘Bishop Gavin Ashenden responds to a recent sermon made by Jayne Ozanne, who openly promotes the acceptance of LGBT ideology in the Church of England. He argues that Ozanne’s teaching is a new form of the old heresy – gnosticism. He points out that uncritically accepting same-sex attraction is a form of self-justification: “gnosticism, a private revelation of pseudo-intimacy and superior self-justification was identified and rejected by the Church every time it raised its head”.’
On the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, with Martin Luther nailing the 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church, Anglicans nailed (or tacked) a similar protesting document to the doors of five Church of England cathedrals. Leaders in the movement told PJ Media they intend to push the Church of England back to the Bible and against a “secular” form of “soft socialism.”
“These postings of the Southwark Declaration represent a grassroots protest amongst both the orthodox laity and the clergy against the complacent selling-out of the Church of England to the current secular zeitgeist in the name of progressive Christianity,” Gavin Ashenden, a missionary bishop to England who rejected his ordination in the Church of England (and his position as special bishop to Queen Elizabeth II) this year, told PJ Media.
Each of the protesting Anglicans posted both the Southwark Declaration — a document…

A minister friend en-route from eastern Europe via Dover took these photos early one morning a few days ago…
Having resigned from ministry in the Anglican communion Gavin’s incisive analysis cuts close to the ‘bone’. His wise opinion, and closing dream and vision, confirm the validity of a recent prophetic word and vision of pruning of CofE’s deadwood, and my earlier conversational piece about the SSM Bill. It’s exactly as Jesus foretold about these End-times being like the Days of Noah and of Lot!
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
“ If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” (Mk 3.25).
There are at least two ways of doing theology; one primarily as a rational and intellectual act, and one by discernment of the Spirit.
Our Enlightenment traditions are very comfortable with the first, but Churches that look to the Holy Spirit rather than the nous or the human mind, need to be able to exercise the gift of the Holy Spirit called in the New Testament, ‘discernment.’
This is an exercise not in the cerebralness of rationality, of which we have had a great deal, but in spiritual discernment; which can only be done by the twice-born, and…

The First General of the Salvation Army, William Booth (1829-1912), is often quoted as shown above on foretelling changes in the approaching Twentieth century that could take place within churches.
His words are very accurate in prophesying global, liberal changes for the 21st Century Church, as reported in my recent posts. For more about this read Dr Joe Vankoevering’s brief article entitled 100 Year-Old Vision Coveys Sobering Warning to the Church.:
“I try to stay focused on what’s happening in the world as it relates to Bible prophecy—part of my assignment from God. And what’s occurring in the world today all points to the approaching return of Jesus Christ. However, another important part of my assignment is to deal with what God is saying as a warning to His church….”
Continuing from #1 – for ease of reference, the prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – ‘that Day (of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’
Re-reading that scripture upon learning of July’s Sex-Synod shenanigans something struck me from each its verses, namely:
Important to note that I’m NOT saying those people are demonic or demon-possessed. Disciples of Christ are only too aware of the nature of the spiritual battle being waged worldwide for everyone’s spirit, souls and minds – it’s influencing almost every aspect of our lives. The not-yet saved are thereby highly vulnerable and susceptible to satanic deceptions and all too easily fall prey to the enemy of our souls. It wants nothing less than our destruction, spiritual enslavement and eventual incarceration in hell.
In tandem with the General Synod’s formal declaration on banning Conversion Therapy, we see humanistic notions of equality, diversity, rights and sexuality permeating ‘progressive liberal’ goals. John Bercow, long-standing LGBT activist and the Speaker of the House Commons, addressed Pink News at a reception in Parliament. Although speaking in an unofficial capacity, in view of that Parliamentary position his opinion may be deemed as being an ‘ex-officio’ statement. Premier quotes him as saying,
“We are marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.
“There’s always a balance to be struck – we don’t want to behave as though it’s all over, that everything has been done. Nothing remains – because that isn’t true.
“I still feel that we can only really have equal marriage when you can b***** well get married in a church if you want to do so.”
‘When the law changed in 2013, churches were offered a protection that they wouldn’t be forced to host gay marriages in their building.”
[Pink News reports: “‘I suppose in marriage terms there will only really be complete legal equality when it is permissible for a gay couple to marry as a matter of right in a church.” Referring to the Church of England’s clause, he added: “I always felt it was a pity when the same-sex marriage legislation went through that as a way of accommodating some of the church interests there was that compromise which detracted a little bit from the concept of complete equality”.’]
Blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ takes on the case of Justine vs Justin: the ‘not yet’ and ‘never’ of same-sex marriage in the Church of England – his report merits reading in full but here’s its first paragraphs (emphases mine) – note the ‘sacred cow’ of ‘equality’:
A fascinating fact in this latest of Gavin Ashenden’s ‘over the Pond’ chats is that the Church Times wouldn’t refer to him for years because of his orthodox stance. BUT in view of over a thousand more signatures from clergy and laity appended to the letter to the Telegraph, it recognizes a movement is starting and quickly published two reports:
If your browser doesn’t display image try this link to Gavin’s site, or to YouTube. This is an intriguing conversation…and fantastic follow-up to my 2004 open vision of the need for believers to take a Stand on the Rock of Christ against satan’s schemes!
My friend and author of The Pursuit of Pleasure and Feasting on the Father, Revd William Smith, emailed me today in response to my last post’s reference to Gavin Ashenden leading a group of ‘rebel Anglicans’. I have Bill’s kind permission to publish his reaction:
Grace, mercy and peace to you both in our Beloved Saviour and King.
Following on from yesterdays “Watch” with the Gavin Ashenden article, I believe we have the wrong emphasis on this. (ie. in Christian Today article).
Gavin, GAFCON, and the open letter to York, are in no way rebellious. These precious faithful ones are simply that, faithful ones.
The rebels are all those who have abandoned biblical teaching in favour of contemporary ideas and unrighteous ways. It is Lambeth Palace, the Synod (in general), the supporters of “Pride” etc, who have left the truth and are in rebellion against God and His revealed ways for human behaviour.
I have said this elsewhere and feel very strongly that we should be declaring this unashamedly and unapologetically.
The rebels are those who have turned from God, not those who are walking faithfully with Him.
There is a pressing need for Anglicanism, and much of the rest of ‘the church’ to be made aware of this. To recognise the truth of what I have here written and for there to be a turning in support of these faithful ones in rejection of the others. It is being portrayed wrongly making the “rebels” (the faithful) to be those destroying the so called unity of the church, while all the time they are upholding its faithful following of The Lord Jesus. (Rant over)
I do believe we urgently need to redress the prevailing attitude and see Truth restored, the bible honoured, celebrated and followed, rather than being shamed as divisive.
For your thoughts.
Much blessing and encouragement as this battle intensifies as biblical truth is so under threat from within.
In Victorious King Jesus, I bless you both.

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