Veronika West: sober word of warning to Christians across the world

A ‘NOW’ WORD OF SOBER WARNING TO THE BODY OF CHRIST IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH; “THE CARPET OF COMFORT IS ABOUT TO BE RIPPED UP AND REMOVED FROM UNDER THE FEET OF MANY OF GOD’S PEOPLE”!

A few days ago I was taken into a powerful vision where I saw the hand of God suddenly come upon the Church and I watched as His hand took hold of what looked like a large soft and fluffy carpet that was under the feet of many in the Body of Christ and HE RIPPED UP AND REMOVED THE CARPET FROM UNDER THEIR FEET AND I SAW THE BARE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHURCH BEING FULLY EXPOSED, as I looked at the bare foundations I saw that it was covered in dirt and grit and small sharp stones covered its surface, then I looked again and I saw the bare feet of the people who were now standing high upon their tip toes finding it very uncomfortable and difficult to move on the hard ground, as their feet had become very soft and well accustomed to the soft and fluffy carpet. Their feet were no longer the feet of a great Warrior who could run and move with ease upon any terrain. As I began to inquire of the Father as to what I was seeing in the vision, I heard the Spirit of God say,

“DAUGHTER TELL MY PEOPLE TO GET READY, TO BE PREPARED, TO MAKE ROOM! FOR MY HAND IS ABOUT TO MOVE IN AN UNPRECEDENTED WAY IN THE DAYS AHEAD, WATCH! AS MY HAND OF DIVINE JUDGEMENT NOW COMES UPON THE LUKEWARM CHURCH TO RIP UP AND REMOVE THE CARPET OF COMFORT FROM UNDER THEIR FEET, FOR I AM TAKING MY PEOPLE BACK TO THE BEGINNING, TO THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THEIR FIRST LOVE AND I AM RESTORING THEM BACK TO MY ORIGINAL INTENT, YES! FOR I AM EVEN MOVING IN THIS SEASON TO BRING EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE TO THAT WHICH HAS BEEN HIDDEN, CONCEALED, COVERED AND KEPT IN THE DARKNESS, FOR NO LONGER WILL MY PEOPLE FEAST ALONE ON THE BREAD OF EDIFICATION, ENCOURAGEMENT AND COMFORT BUT NOW THEY SHALL EAT OF THE BREAD THAT SHALL MAKE THEIR BELLIES BITTER BUT IT SHALL BE LIKE SWEET HONEY IN THEIR MOUTHS, SO GET READY BELOVED! FOR A DIVINE DISRUPTION AND A TIME OF GREAT DISCOMFORT WILL NOW BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE AMONG MANY WHO HAVE WALKED IN UNGODLY COMPROMISE AND AN UNHOLY CONTENTMENT, MANY HAVING SEARED THEIR HEARTS WITH A HOT IRON, THEIR EYES BLINDED BY THE SPIRIT OF DECEPTION AND THEIR EARS DEAFENED TO THE VOICE OF TRUTH, WATCH AND PRAY, AS THE PURIFYING FIRES OF MY GLORY BEGIN TO FLOW FORTH LIKE A MIGHTY RIVER TO MAKE WAY AND TO CLEAN HOUSE AND THAT WHICH HAS CAUSED THE HEARTS OF MY PEOPLE TO BECOME COLD, DESENSITISED, DISCONNECTED AND DEFILED WILL NOW BE DISMANTLED AND DETHRONED”, says the Spirit of God.

Another insight on Smith-Wigglesworth’s ‘Word and Spirit’ prophecy – powerful prophetic season coming

We continue with the second of the pair of God-incidental ‘jigsaw pieces’ based upon Smith Wigglesworth’s renowned prophetic vision, as published by UK Prophetic Words on 7th January:

WORD AND SPIRIT – Here’s a thought for you. When Smith Wigglesworth first gave his ‘Word and Spirit’ coming together prophecy, everyone assumed that ‘Word’ equated to Bible. What if it meant more than that? What if it meant Prophecy? What if Holy Spirit manifested what was being spoken prophetically simultaneously with the Word being given? Word and Spirit coming together? Almost as in Ananias and Sapphira – Peter spoke, Holy Spirit acted – together? Perhaps not quite so drastic, but nevertheless, Word and Spirit together.

Hear the Word of the Lord, “I am bringing Word and Spirit together in such a way as you have not previously imagined. I am bringing back a reverential fear of the Lord through My prophets. As My prophets speak, so shall my Spirit act and so shall My people understand, and it shall bring a return of the fear of the Lord. This is not to bring physical fear, but rather a fear of missing what My Spirit is doing and how He is working among you in this season. It will also birth a desire to ‘be Holy as I am Holy’ among you.

“It is time to heed My prophets, time to listen and hear what they say. It is time to be holier than in the past. If My prophets say ‘GO’, then go. If they say ‘STAY’, then stay. If they say ‘REPENT’, then repent and turn away from your sin. Great is the reward for those who listen to My Word from My prophets – they shall see God. Those who do not obey shall miss some or all of their reward, for they do not fear the Lord.

“There is coming a prophetic season, the like of which has not been seen, when My prophets shall have great clarity of vision and of communication. They will help to lead My people through troubled times ahead. Do not turn aside to new teachings that please you. Rather listen to My prophets – they have My Words – and heed their advice, their warnings, and their blessings. They shall tear down and they shall build up. By My presence shall you know them, for they shall carry My anointing wherever they go, and they will bless My people.

“My Spirit shall confirm My prophets, and He is about to bring Glory, My Glory, to your meetings. A new, short, ‘Prophetic Golden Age’ is coming upon you. Woe to those ‘prophets’ who claim to be what I have not anointed them to be. Woe to those who do not receive nor heed what My prophet tells them from Me!”

An insight on Smith-Wigglesworth’s ‘Word and Spirit’ prophecy – intertwining like the confluence of two mighty rivers (GPS #27.1)

At the beginning of last October we saw the double ‘God-incidence’ of having blogged on the Jean Darnall and Smith Wiggleworth’s visions and then learning about a prayer meeting being held by Call The Nation To Prayer that weekend in connection with both. It’s like the Lord used GPS, or Global Prophecy Signalling, to catch our attention and remind us that although decades old, they are still ‘in play’ and waiting to be fulfilled – ie. ‘now’ words.

Now, yet another double ‘God-incidence’ clearly attests to the Lord stressing the great importance of the Smith-Wigglesworth ‘Word & Spirit’ prophecy, as though four pieces of an invisible jigsaw are being put into place!  Last weekend what Steve Hepden and Chris Bennett had heard from Him was published by private email and public blog (UK Prophetic Words) respectively. Steve kindly permits me to publish what he received in the weeks before Christmas:

It is over three weeks ago when I first heard God speak to me.

I was walking up the road from the shops with a loaf of bread and was more concentrating on my walking and crossing the road. What surprised me was the suddenness and spontaneity of the word as I was certainly not thinking of this.

The essence of my prophecy is ‘the Word and the Spirit’ and I thought of something Smith Wigglesworth spoke in 1947. Having always loved and appreciated Pentecostal and Charismatic church history, this came to mind. He said, as part of his prophecy, ‘When the Word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest movement of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed the world, has ever seen.’

Why now? I believe it’s a reminder to the older generation, a new word to this generation and a call to prepare and position ourselves to enter into it.

Here is what I heard:

“There is a distinctiveness between Word and Spirit, yet they go hand in hand together.
However, in the move of God to come, the distinctiveness will remain but there will such a joining together that the synergy produced will become more powerful than you have ever seen. For the sum of the whole will miraculously be greater than the sum of the two parts. It will be like two mighty rivers coming together in a confluence where something greater, deeper, wider will happen and at the point of joining there will be disturbance. The influence established by this will be far greater than each individual river.

“This joining together will be an intertwining of the one into another and even though joined and thus influencing each other without measure, they will still maintain their distinctiveness. It really is a marriage. The Word and Spirit are different in nature, they are unmistakable, clear-cut and defined. Yet they will serve each other and bring their own distinctiveness together to enhance and release each other further than ever before. The Word will be the source by which the Spirit will move in the drama of signs and wonders and with such a purity of fruit, being the character and the Spirit will express and manifest the Word with power and authority in gifting.

“Some say you are men and women of the Word or others say you are men and women of the Spirit, but this will change dramatically and people will not know what to call you and will even wonder what is happening. There have been forerunners over the years and they are scattered over the Nations, yet it is time for everyone to be challenged and inspired in a way that has not happened before, for the fact of the matter is that everyone can come into this and in an accelerated way. Do not stay where you are, move forward by making a choice to open yourself up to the Spirit of God and to the illuminating Word of God, for the New Year will bring a new day for you.

I have been meditating on this prophecy and It’s amazing how many scriptures you can find where the Spirit and the Word are in union and unity.:
Ps 107:20, ‘He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death.’
Luke 1:34-37, Mary said, ‘how will this be?’ ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.’ ‘For nothing is impossible with God.’ ‘Let it be to me according to your word.
Rom 10:17, ‘So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’
Acts 6:8, ‘and Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.’
John 6:63, ‘The Spirit is the one who gives life! Human strength can do nothing. The words that I have spoken to you are from that life-giving Spirit.’

However, there is an indictment from the lips of Jesus and I want to live as far away from that as possible. Matt 22:29, ‘Jesus replied, you are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.’

A challenge we need to take serious note of.

Bobby Conner: strategies for advancing to next new level

Why should I ever be surprised at what turns up from the Lord?

Here’s yet another reference to Hebrews 6; the one with the ‘Age to Come’ verses. AND it lines up with the current, albeit unplanned, focus upon training for ruling and reigning together with Jesus in The Millennium.

I’m grateful to Rose for drawing this message to my attention. It is special because of its succinct emphasis upon Jesus’ command, “Occupy until I come!”, which is also the thesis ‘foremost Bible teacher’ and Bishop of Liverpool, J.C. Ryle makes in his classic book ‘Are You Ready For The End Of Time?’ (1867). 21st Century prophet Bobby Conner writes:

DISCOVER A NEW WAY FOR A NEW DAY

2019-01-01
No Delay It’s Time to Proceed to the Next New Level – Possess The Land! A Big Word, For Now, Is “Occupy!”

In a profound encounter, the Spirit of God said, “It is time to go to the next new level!” I was instructed to prepare a remnant of Believers to position themselves to advance proceeding to the next new level, to possess the Land, and to possess and occupy! I said, “Lord, I don’t like the word remnant, it seems too selective.” He replied, “Don’t misunderstand; this invitation of advancement is open to all who will obey. Gender or age makes no difference, it is an issue of the heart.” All are called, but few will come!

The Peril of Falling Away

Don’t allow yourself to stagnate and become callous and cold, now is the time to awake from slumber and rouse to reality (see Romans 13:11-14)! Arise and shine and push-on to new heights (see Isaiah 60:1-5). The Spirit of Truth is desiring to release profound awesome revelation for any who will seek to come higher. If you contend and earnestly seek this can be a season that the eyes of your heart are flooded with revelatory light (see Ephesians 1:17-18). We must go dig deeper into the Word of God to discover the ways of God

Therefore, let us get past the elementary stage in the teachings about the Christ, advancing on to maturity and perfection and spiritual completeness, [doing this] without laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of teaching about washings (ritual purifications), the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. [These are all important matters in which you should have been proficient long ago.] And we will do this [that is, proceed to maturity] if God permits. (Hebrews 6:1-3 AMP)

It is time for the Prophetic Seers to go into the Courts of Heaven, behind the veil acquiring the Divine plans and purposes of God. The Spirit of Truth stands ready to release the Divine strategies and blueprints of heaven. This is not a time to be vague and dim, but we must be bright and alert clear and committed to advance the King in His Kingdom.

Divine Dissatisfaction Producing a Holy Hunger!

The Spirit of God is fanning the flame of discontentment within the heart of many. We can’t remain satisfied and content with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth. “Enough is enough!” Ask yourself this question: Am I willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion? This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first.

We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near (see Isaiah 55:6). We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His Kingdom our top priority, He will take care of everything else (see Matthew 6:33).

There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment, many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual.

This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level. Jesus states, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” The Amplified Bible reveals, “those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God)…shall be completely satisfied!” (see Matthew 5:6).

It’s time to remove all lids of limitations off and believe God for big things, assured that He is able to do much more than we could as or even think (see Ephesians 3:20-21). One way not to miss God’s new thing is don’t think it is already here. Yes, we are so thankful and grateful for all that God is doing, yet there is much more. The promise is that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God’s glory (see Numbers 14:21 and Habakkuk 2:14).

The Spirit of God is stirring our souls and awakening our hearts to seek deeper depths and higher heights. This is the time for you to go all out for Christ and the Kingdom of God. Don’t hold back; surrender yourself entirely to the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The statement is so true: deep is calling to deep (see Psalm 42:7).

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.Isaiah 43:19

This is a promise of transformational power being released, giving and unction to function. A roadway in the rugged wilderness and flowing refreshing rivers in the dry, barren desert. Nothing is too hard for our God (see Job 42:2 and Genesis 18:14)!

You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve], which you have not known.

They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, “Behold, I knew them!” — Isaiah 48:6-7 (AMPC)

These new things are called into reality by the prophetic proclamation. They are decreed, and God brings them into reality.

We do not have time to delay, the Spirit of Truth is preparing a remnant to proceed to the next new level; we must advance and make progress(see Ephesians 5:14-15). In this next new level, we will begin to grasp a higher, clearer insight into the majesty of the Master. Prepare to behold the living Lord Jesus in a much clearer way.

It is time to taste the hidden manna reserved for over-comers revealed in Revelation 2:17:
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone, a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”

I pray that 2019 will be filled with the overflowing favor of God upon you and your loved ones. Embrace the promises of God’s new day. Expect to see God’s mighty power!

The Coming Davidic Messiah

This summation of the who, what and why of the up-coming Millennium is a valuable reminder of our goal as active Christians. Also, knowledge of the Kingdom as our inheritance is fundamental because our spiritual opponents claim ignorance of that fact dis-empowers believers (see Christian Inheritance & End-times Church for source.)

All Along the Watchtower

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

-Revelation 3:21

The Kingdom is woven into all the teachings of Christ. He taught us to pray, “Thy Kingdom come”. He taught that our good deeds on earth are seen by our Father in Heaven, and that He will reward us in the resurrection. He taught that His Kingdom is not of this world, and that this world is in darkness. Christ’s moral teaching is so sublime as to be unattainable by the flesh: it is the power of the Spirit, who is given to us as an earnest of the Kingdom, that makes us able to live as Christ did.

In our suffering, the resurrection is our comfort. The Kingdom is what we are striving for: even as we wait…

1989 > 2009 > 2019 > The Age To Come

Arising from references to The Divine Council and Millennium training in comments on a prophetic word on the UK Government, and how the Church can influence it by virtue of its Kingdom authority, a reader asked me about such training within churches.

It’s an excellent question in view of the implications in that word, and in others brought by Bobby Conner, Neville JohnsonLana Vawser and Veronika West to name a few, on bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth (eg, Lana on prayer lives being filled with holy fire).

Also, I’m aware of some ministries that equip us for service in that event:

  • Christian International Europe (Dr Sharon Stone) in Windsor, Berks
  • Catch The Fire in Birmingham, Bournemouth, Wembley
  • Bethel Church, Redding, CA & White Dove Ministries AL, in USA.
  • Partners in Harvest International.

In replying to that reader I sent a link to Bible and ancient languages scholar Dr Michael Heiser, as well as this excellent video received earlier from Paul Keith Davis, founder and leader of White Dove Ministries, about prophetic models from and operating in “The Age to Come” :

Personally, this is all highly encouraging and brings to mind what was indicated to me about it 7 years ago as ‘The Book Beyond the Bible’, which I blogged about in Supermoon Monday’s Blood Moon and The Age To Come as below:

‘At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, beyond The Apocalypse, or Revelation given to Jesus Christ, for showing to and recording by His close disciple and apostle, John.

‘As noted in Revival 1: glory stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!

‘That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.’

About 10 years ago I was particularly blessed at a conference in Bath where Paul Keith was teaching. As a listed art-deco cinema, the sanctuary area of Bath City Church has cinema seats sloping down to a broad, deep level floor in front of a raised platform. I recall him teaching from that floor when he got a prophetic word for someone sitting in the rear of the auditorium. Suddenly, he strode up an aisle to deliver it closer to the person. However, whilst passing me in an aisle-seat on his left, he turned to look directly at me and told me: “Await His return!” – Wow, was I undone!

So although Paul Keith was about to deliver a word he must have been diverted by the Holy Spirit to convey a brief command to me – one that must be mightily important for me to know and obey as an essential part of my destiny!  So, I can but trust it’s true!

Also, I’m not the only one having grounds for believing in the distinct possibility of Jesus Christ returning in their lifetime. A friend informed me he knows a lady in her 80’s who’s assured she will live to witness that event. And Nicholas, author of the previous post on moving into the Millennium is of a similar mind.

Why the dates in this post’s header?  1989 is when I encountered Jesus. 2009 is when I began writing about End-times and biblical and contemporary prophecies.

Lastly, let’s remind ourselves that the ‘Age To Come’ has been accessible to disciples since the earliest days of the pristine church, as witnessed by the author of the book to the Hebrews (New King James Version):

The Peril of Not Progressing

6 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this [b]we will do if God permits.

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, [c]if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

SELAH

Moving into the Millennium

This by Nicholas is especially recommended for I suspected he’d follow up on our short public and private discussion on this topic by publishing his thoughts on this matter, on which I too have prepared a post on The Age To Come to follow this re-blog. In particular, we’re on the same page re last sentence of his opening paragraph…

All Along the Watchtower

Many contributors and readers at AATW know that I believe the return of Christ is near. I will not state a year or make any of the specific predictions that date-setters do. I do not believe He will return in the next year; all I can say is that, in my spirit, I feel the coming and believe it will be within my lifetime.

I have held this belief for some time. It is born from an intuition, deep within, and from reading Scripture. Jesus in His Olivet Discourse gave a sequence to help us understand when His return would be near: the Abomination of Desolation; the Great Tribulation; the darkening of the sky; the sign of the Son of Man and the return of Jesus on the clouds.

Without a proper understanding of this sequence, the Olivet Discourse becomes unintelligible. The intertextuality between the Olivet Discourse and the Book…

2009 End-times revelation on ‘wheat & tares’ reinforced for 2019 (GPS#26.1)

Recently a number of previous insights and prophetic words have been reiterated as though stressing not only their important relevance but also and maybe more stridently because their manifestation is now drawing close. There’s been an increasing number on the parable of the separation of the wheat and poisonous weeds(!) known as darnel, or tares, now being applied to the sifting and cleansing of church denominations.

The latest on this is Neville Johnson’s letter from The Academy of Light in Australia and, in my humble opinion, is essential reading – especially in nearly coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the inward ‘voice’ I heard upon opening my Bible to re-read that parable: “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” (as told in The Endgame Is Now In Play and which started my writing upon prophetical matters).

Thank you Neville for writing as follows (emphases mine)

Dear Richard,

Well here we are again at the beginning of another New Year. However this year is not just another year. There are points in time which stand out more than others. There are seasons within seasons. There are epochs or ages which mark such times as the birth  and death of Jesus, the fall of Jerusalem, the Reformation etc. There are seasons within seasons which are important, like specific years in a decade. However this New Year is more than just another year. First, last year was a Jubilee year in which the reimbursements promised in the Jubilee year start to unfold now; ie. the end of last year into the beginning of this year. The last time there was such a significant timing was the beginning of the Reformation in 16th century. While this was a milestone in the history of the church, denominations began to emerge following the Reformation i.e. Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, and Pentecostals etc. However, in this new and last season persecution will trigger a collapse, causing denominations to begin to dissolve into a people of the Kingdom of God. This will be of God’s doing. There will now be a period of removing the tares from the church. This must happen before the harvest begins.

‘Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
‘But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
‘But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
‘So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, “Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?”
‘He said unto them, “An enemy hath done this”. The servants said unto him, “Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?”
‘But he said, “Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
Matthew 13:24 -30

We are now moving from the church age to the Kingdom age. The ramifications of this are far-reaching. On the 26th December 2018 I had an encounter with the Lord and one of his saints, ie. cloud of witnesses, in which I was given some insight into this new era. This is the last era, ie. period of time before the return of the Lord. This said, we must understand that time is now limited and is running out. Now when major time seasons come to an end we must be aware of the implications.

First, there are aspects of the old that must not come over into the new. When a baby is born the umbilical cord must be cut off. While the umbilical cord was instrumental in nourishing the baby it cannot stay connected to the mother it must be severed.  The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has become one of the latest to advise medical professionals to wait at least 30 to 60 seconds before clamping and cutting.

Throughout a pregnancy, the umbilical cord carries important nutrients and blood from the mother to the baby.  If the cord is not cut off there is a very real chance of infection as the placenta begins to rot.  So it is as we move on into a new era, much of the old must not come over in to the new.

There is much in the old season that will not work in this new season
‘Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
‘Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.’
Isaiah 43:18 -19
After Joseph’s great trial he called his first son Manasseh:
This is interesting because the Name Manasseh means ‘forgetting’ in the Hebrew.
‘And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father’s house.’
Genesis 41:51

After the great trial Joseph went though it was time now for him to forget
‘Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.’
Phil 3:13 -14

Change can be daunting somewhat, particularly when it comes to how we do church. However change must come. One of the greatest pictures of what the end-time church looks like is found in the encounter that Jacob had with the ladder that reached up to heaven. The house of God was supposed to be a gateway to heaven where heaven touches earth.

‘And Jacob awakened out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
‘And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
‘And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
‘And he called the name of that place Bethel:’ (The House of God)
Gen 28:16-19

The description of David’s Tabernacle gives us another insight into these end-time people of the kingdom. It pictures an open heaven a place where heaven and earth meet. Gateways to an open heaven will be opened up across the earth in many places and churches. There will be echoes in nature that reflects this change from the old to the new. Signs of the new season.

Many have been under attack from witchcraft targeted against them and also many churches have been targeted over the last few years by this spirit This Jezebelic spirit has hindered many but in this new season change is coming in regards to this demonic aggression. The rise of true kingdom power and authority will begin to escalate. Kingdom health will start to prevail in many. The season of trials will emerge into great blessings just as winter gives way to springtime. True Josephs will come out of prison. That which has been built on the sand will disappear and that which has been built on the rock, the teachings of Jesus, will stand the coming storms. In this new season Kingdom love will release Kingdom faith, authority, wealth, and revelation. The awaking of the Kingdom within you will bring a tsunami of revelation and understanding. The parables of the Kingdom will also bring revelation, understanding and insights into this Kingdom age.

Many who have run their course will be taken home in this new season. It is graduation time for many who have run their race and have kept the faith. Age may have wearied you but your home-coming is awaited eagerly by those on the other side.

‘I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
‘Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them  also them that love his appearing.’
2 Tim 4:7-8

Change is in the air the set time to favour Zion has come
‘But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
‘Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.’
Psalm 102:12-13
‘When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.’
Psalm 102:16

A new year, a fresh start – a reflective trilogy

Three brief messages may encourage my readers personally, and assist reflection upon your spiritual journey, or your consideration of embarking upon one.:

A long year of increasing difficulties has disappeared and we’re blessed to face a fresh start with their elimination. It was mightily encouraging, therefore, on New Year’s morn’ and our returning to the beginning of daily meditations in Sanctuary by David Strutt, to read his following insight (tap/drag to enlarge):

Next, this by Russ Parker was particularly poignant because I’ve revisited the account of my own journey or pilgrimage – even when I was far away from God – as you will read soon. It opens up the first portion ‘Pilgrim Aspirations’ of Jan-April 2019 issue of Bible Reflections For Older People (publ by Bible Reading Fellowship). Note reference to ‘new journeys’.:

Third, this ‘daily dose’ from David & Emma Stark’s team at Glasgow Prophetic Centre; note, we’re back to one of this blog’s on-going topics, that of Time:

Lionbites: I CREATE THE DAYS

As you enter this new year it may be hard to see that it truly is new and you may even feel trapped in the yester-days and the yester-years. Your calendar feels backwards, with future dates already filled and re-filled with diary entries from the past.Yet the Lord says over you,

“I am the God who creates the days. I am He who exists with Time. I do not give you days without purpose nor do I give you time without fruit. Give Me your minutes and I will add years to you, give Me your seconds and I will multiply them with fruit. You are My child and I will cause you to prosper; you are My gift and I will cause you to bless and to be blessed. I created you by design, lifting you out of obscurity into abundance and now you have the path of plenty for I Am the Light of Life.”

Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jesus leads me to those with similar testimony as mine

The Father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in Whom we have our redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. [St Paul’s letter to the Colossians 1:13-14, Amplified Bible.]

On top of needing to test Christians’ claims of hearing God direct and for which I got astounding personal evidence of that regarding false teachers and their falsehoods, I wanted to know lots more about Jesus.

In my wariness of religious folk I’d assumed none would be able to comprehend my story as they’d be ignorant about those things. Doubtless, none would have been through my kind of bad, meditative ‘trips’ – or so I thought!

But again, direct help was at hand from the Bible’s Author… Continue reading

Jesus opens my Bible to answer my ‘newbie’ questions!

TO GOD ALONE BE THE GLORY

My testimony to the Lord’s saving grace as told in the recent posts, was among the first postings on this blog in December 2011 and entitled Death or Destiny? Choose Wisely. I was reticent to go into any depth about my bondage to satan but, in view of today’s widespread ignorance, I told the full story in 7 installments for the event’s anniversary in 2013 (No 7 and My Journey Into Freedom). Over discussions here and on another blog last year someone thought my brief references to Islam indicated my ignorance of it and of deism in particular. So, for the record I augmented the account with necessary detail. Now for newer readers’ information, we continue with the final three parts and a NEW question 3 inserted below:

…The night Jesus Christ takes me to task and rescues me!

Upon awaking twenty-nine years ago today (14th September 1989) I knew events in the early hours had been a landmark in my destiny. The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But the night had been spent at 212 E_Road in Stockport, Cheshire, for a life-changing event. (Hence my laughing at the title of yesterday’s post GPS #21.2: God’s Voice Thunders. That number had also cropped up after I first blogged about this testimony!)

In a most unusual dream that night I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that nearly 30 years later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what happened (dream content blue font, comments black italics).:
