Bible’s Author shows me ex-New Agers’ testimonies

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.]

[Continuing my personal testimony]

As well as checking out Christians’ claims of hearing God direct and getting astounding personal evidence for that, I wanted to know lots more not only about Him, but also and especially to follow-up on the personally revelatory scriptures about false teachers.

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

“Watch With Me” – Neil Mackereth (GPS #51.7)

Featured

The main message of prophetical ‘signals’ #51 received globally a fortnight ago is of the Lord Jesus keeping His focus on our heavenly Father’s purposes. Then on Tuesday, 8th September, I learned what Neil Mackereth has been hearing from the Lord on this.

Moreover, his location of Winchester, Hampshire, confirms his contribution as part of this series of GPS because one ‘signal’ was received in Winchester in Virginia, USA. I’d wanted to comment about it coming from the New World’s city named after King Alfred’s ancient capital of Wessex. Also, the inclusion of both Winchesters confirms my sensing, whilst writing, the spiritual alignment of a ‘Bridge o’r the Pond’ and as relating to my blog on the Mayflower’s voyage 400 years ago and trajectory of 1999’s solar eclipse.

Neil emailed me a week ago today as follows: Continue reading

Jesus ‘arrested’ me to stop me dropping into Hell…

Upon awaking 31 years ago tomorrow (14th September 1989), I was so happy to find I’m still alive after having had a close call with death in the night!

The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But that night had been spent at my childhood home at 212 E___ Rd, Stockport, Cheshire, to undergo a life-changing event.

In a most unusual dream I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that even three decades later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what had happened (copied from original, explanatory comments in italics).:

A HEAVENLY VISITOR
‘I am in my childhood home and standing in front of the very tall casement window in one corner of the lounge. I look up into the inky, dark night sky outside.
‘A small flotilla of large, wingless aircraft drifts slowly across from left to right at high altitude and I groan, “Oh…not that flying saucer nonsense. I must be dreaming!”
‘I’m sceptical about the existence of UFO’s, but now another ‘fleet’ of some sort appears from the right and heads towards the first.
(The dream now changes gear by going up a level from the usual mix of mental material to that of absolute lucidity…)
‘The ‘light goes on’! In my ‘knower’, I realise the first fleet is demonic and the second is masses of angels under the command of Jesus Christ. (I did not believe in them, and regarded Jesus as one of many world teachers. Here, I see no individuals but inwardly know the situation.)
‘I think I’m about to watch an amazing heavenly battle…but…OH NO! Somehow, I now know Jesus has espied me far down below and is coming down directly towards me!
‘All I see is a distant bright light very rapidly getting brighter and larger as it drops down to my location, just like an airliner approaching a runway to land at night.
‘Instantly, I realise my life has been one of sin that contrasts starkly against Jesus’ own holiness. Right away I realise what’s claimed about the Judgement is true – but mine is about to happen right now!
Beyond any doubt whatsoever I suddenly realise my involvement in the occult was most definitely wrong. Consequently, I deserve the undesirable abode!
‘Groaning “My number’s up!” I inwardly tremble in fearful knowledge I’m about to die at any moment. An invisible trapdoor I’m standing on will drop me straight into Hell.
‘Utmost mortal terror strikes! I dive under the drop-leaf table by the wall to the left of the window so I can hide from Jesus. But he knows I’m hiding there and swoops down straight through the wall on the other side of the corner window. He’s standing in the room and right beside the table!
‘Cowering below the table with my back turned towards him, I glance over my shoulder and see him from the knees down, his body and face out of sight above the table.
‘Most unexpectedly, somehow I have the courage to reach my hand out backwards to grab at the hem of Jesus’ robe…
‘As I tug, the event goes into yet another level of revelation regarding my childhood…Then I awake! Thoroughly alert, further sleep eludes me!’

The dream reminds me of an evocative small picture that strongly impressed me when a child – the return of Jesus Christ:

Later I understand that my terror had been ‘the fear of God’ brought by Holy Spirit’s convicting me of my personal wrongdoing and, thus, preparing me to receive God’s grace (ie. undeserved favour).

Also, what happened after reaching for Jesus, and which I’ve yet to tell, proves He’s so closely acquainted with my intimate thoughts when a boy. The dream’s conclusion shows He’s going to topple those childish concepts and replace them with a sure knowledge of His true identity.

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love” (Psalm 111). Mercifully, He plucked me from the domain of darkness to bring me into His own kingdom and receive its blessings. I deserved none of that. Truly, Amazing Grace – how awesome and wonderful..!

As a result of the most remarkable dream I’d ever had, I was left with no choice but to seriously reconsider all my New Age and occult notions. Meditational and mystical exercises had resulted in my having some unusual, ‘psychic’ dreams, but none whatsoever like this one.

The only one remotely similar was that of being in an ‘altered’ state of consciousness known as ‘nirvana’, or bliss, but where I’d been taken behind its alluring golden light. Sheer ecstasy turned to abject terror as the light I was in got swept aside like a curtain being removed to reveal a hideous, devouring beast of utter blackness approaching me – far, far worse than any nightmare!

I wasn’t into drugs but was ignorant of the scripture ‘satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light‘ (2 Cor 11:14). Upon reading that verse years later, I realised its truth had been dramatically demonstrated to me as a non-Christian!

But in this new dream my terrifying fear had been overcome by Jesus Christ Himself and His wonderful mercy and love. He ‘arrested’ me in my sin only to rescue me from falling into the pit of Hell.

In this stunning night the Truth I’d been searching for since a teenager turned up in Person – thank You Lord. And lots more Truth was to come as I began to open the door to His Good News!

Moreover, this amazing encounter was yet to be validated on three occasions!!! (Next post)

So, if you don’t yet know Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with Him, you may wish to know more and consider this vital matter by visiting this blog’s hub Do You Know Jesus?

“I Am Moving. Follow Me!” Word confirms the Lord’s instruction (GPS #51.2)

Published this afternoon on Facebook, this from Sarah-Jane Biggart, Asst Director of Glasgow Prophetic Centre and leader of The Purple Company (GPCs international prophetic intercession network), confirms the essence of what was taught at last night’s zoom meeting of Catch The Fire Farnborough. In a fast-track summary of the earliest Gospel account (by Mark), pastor Christopher Bird explained how it shows Jesus’ Way of ‘doing’ Church – as He told pastor: “Watch how I build Church!”. 

Sarah-Jane writes: 

‘I AM MOVING! FOLLOW ME’

I saw the Lord in the Spirit as the Lion of Judah. He came close to my face with His gentle but strong leonine face next to mine and said firmly, but with understated volume;

“I am moving”

He then began to walk ahead and I saw around me people in increasing numbers to my left and right begin to gather and walk with me. The Lord who had walked ahead of us paused deliberately slightly ahead and turned to look at us all. He then said to us all;

“Follow me!”

After He said these words He came very close to me and opened His mouth and roared incredibly loudly and violently into my body and Spirit these words:

“I AM MOVING!”

So loud and thundering was His voice it shook me. The words like many waters repeated over and over; repeated in the roar over and over again. At the same time I could hear Him speak these words in an underlying voice beneath the roar “count the cost” . I began to weep as I heard this knowing the cost would be great for many. The Lord reminding us what He said in Luke 14 to count the cost of following Him again as He released His roar.

ANGELS OF DIRECTION:

Then; I was aware of many angels increasing in the space next to me, crowding in to my left side and beginning to draw around me, even pulling at my wrist. Hundreds there, they pulled me into the centre of their enormous crowd and I heard the Lord say these were His angels of direction. Those we read about in Exodus 23. God says listen to your angel of direction and do what he tells you as he goes ahead to prepare the way we should go in accordance with Exodus 23.

I realised these angels were beginning to mark my skin with their ‘fingerprints’ – so that we the Church would know which way to go. Leaving a permanant imprint.

I heard the Lord say this:

“I am sending legions of angels for those who will say ‘Yes’ to moving with Me in this hour.

“To those who hear the call, I say now MOVE! Move and follow Me into the unknown.”

IT’S TIME TO MOVE!’

For some of us it’s a physical and geographical move. For others it is a change of career or relationship move. Many will see this word resonate and highlight the need to move from places and positions of safety and security that are not of the Lord. Listen to the Lord speak to you personally about where He is moving you.

He is saying to us to move away from the conformity and comfort and move into the openness of the unknown He is now leading us into.

OUR RESPONSE:

We say yes Lord to Your call.

We say we will move!

We will count the cost and follow You Jesus.

I say “Yes” to moving with you and following you Lord Jesus whatever the cost and whatever it looks like. Wherever You go; I will go.

Prophecy of the Lord shutting down opposition and amplifying our voice (GPS #51.1)

Just to ensure all readers understand my personal opinion throughout this pandemic of demonic origin: I am opposed to Christians being muzzled by the ‘prince of the air’.  [NB: 1. this Hebrew year/decade (5780+) is symbolic of the mouth and holy utterances. 2. For informative news-feed on masks visit Spirit Body Soul on Facebook.]

Last April, Australian Christy Johnson had a vision of waves of awakening and opening wells and brought a five-fold prophetic word and prayer strategy. It came with personal recommendation of a pastor whom the Lord had instructed in December to watch how He builds Church!  Therefore, he is now serving the Lord in setting up and teaching on how ‘new church’ will look and operate. Upon hearing last night of his meeting another leader to discuss if/how believers may lose their salvation, l ‘saw’ a pillar-like cloud of fire ‘attending’ today’s meeting.

Therefore, I particularly note Nate and Christy’s reference to that Numbers 14:14 pillar in the 6th paragraph of In September God is shutting down the opposition against your mission & message and amplifying your voice. It was posted yesterday and begins:

‘A year ago, I released a word titled “In the next 30 days exchange the muzzle for the war-cry” leading up to Rosh Hashanah where God revealed to me that He was revealing ways people had been muzzled and how He was bringing freedom and deliverance leading up to the new Jewish year. Last week the Holy Spirit reminded me of this word and said, “The same muzzling spirit is afraid of what I am leading my church into – it’s her hour of action & amplification!” 

‘God is dealing with some spiritual assignments that have been opposing you and I and that in the month of September we are in a window of time where God is dealing with the things that are causing you and I to be muzzled and opposition in a time that our voices need to be heard. I feel the urgency on this, that in September we are partnering with God in prayer and intercession over the body of Christ and the nations that we would see these areas of bullying and opposition broken….’

PS 4/9: Upon re-reading I’ve realised how it ties in with the next post and so, both are 51st example of God’s ‘GPS’ acting in Australia, England and Scotland in first days of this month!.

Number 22 (again) in scripture and timing re. SCOTUS and torpedoes

In covering the latest word Thomas Harry received (“Final Call” – It’s Time!) I referred to conspiracy theories and offered my opinion on the importance of Christians being aware of issues and sorting out fact from fiction. We should not be ignorant of satan’s schemes and know how the Lord is working to bring about His righteous and justice, as well as judgement.

My understanding is this should be part of our training for eventually ruling and reigning with Jesus in The Millennium – as well as well-before that event!   In the parable of the ten minas (Luke 19) Jesus told us to “occupy” and use our God-given talents wisely and multiply them, rather than bury them (and our heads) in the sand. 

In fact Jesus’ command to “Occupy until I come!”, is part of ‘foremost Bible teacher’, Bishop of Liverpool, J.C. Ryle’s thesis in his classic Are You Ready For The End Of Time? (published 1867).

Therefore, I’m pleasantly surprised to be alerted by Elaine Venning to yesterday’s notable intercessory word on The Supreme Court of The United States, by her writing,

“22s are back…Apart from the fact that I can witness to the heavy battle over the USA (one of the young lions of Tarshish) and the guardian at present of the critical straits of Hormuz in the Middle East…”

The Lord’s ‘Final Call’: It’s Time! – Thomas Harrry

There’s a ‘God-incidence’ to tell of what happened half-an-hour before last Friday’s scheduled publication of Can You Bear What Jesus Is Telling This Generation?, as delivered by Thomas Harry.  Those details, however, must wait because a far more important one was to be issued almost 12 hours later. The Bank Holiday weekend and personal matters delayed my attending to his email sent 19:43 Friday. Thomas writes:

“It is very rarely the Lord gives me two words in quick succession, but I received an even more urgent word in the past week. It is the most serious and heavy word God has ever given me.

“It is regarding the “Final Call” to Destiny for believers. I have never felt the emotion of God so powerfully as I did when He spoke it is the Final Call to Destiny. Indeed I had to hold back tears as I knew believers were about to miss their destiny if they did not respond correctly in this window.

“So I know you just shared the word today, but I had to send this also, as the title and word suggests timing is critical. I believe it is vital for believers and trust you will know when is best to share it.”

Thomas writes in Urgent: The “Final Call” – It’s Time! (published at Z3 News):

‘…When the Lord revealed that He is releasing a “Final Call” to believers it shook me to the core. I felt a sadness, heaviness and seriousness I have never felt accompany any word from the Lord. Therefore, it is with a sober mind and heavy heart that I share this word. “Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plough to start God’s work and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God” – Luke 9:62. If we have ever made a commitment to the call of God – it is time to honour that commitment, without looking in the rear view mirror any longer. The hard to believe reality is that the window of grace to truly choose His will for our lives is closing. This will come as a shock to believers, so it is important to clarify from the start that this is not talking about salvation…’ 

In this extensive message and teaching, the second sub-head reminds me of a recent instance of a comment made on one of my guest-blogs about Christians taking notice of conspiracy theories. However, in my opinion, being aware of issues and sorting out fact from fiction in the Kingdom’s cause of righteous and justice is a clear responsibility of all church leaders and disciples. Jesus told us to “occupy” and use our God-given talents wisely and multiply them, rather than bury them (and our heads) in the sand. 

Here are the topics Thomas covers in his latest (click to read in full), as published the day I was preparing that preceding one for this blog:

NO MORE GAMES – DISCERNING THE TIMES & SEASONS

DOES IT MATTER IF I MISS MY CALLING? – PARABLE OF THE TALENTS

JONAH RUNS FROM GOD’S CALL – NO MORE RESCUE TEAMS

RICH YOUNG RULER – CALL OF GOD WAS TOO BIG A SACRIFICE

NO TIME FOR GOD’S CALL – THEY ALL BEGAN MAKING EXCUSES

CHILDREN OF ISRAEL MISSED THEIR FINAL CALL

KING SAUL – LOST CALL OF GOD & SALVATION

GRACE FOR OUR CALLING – DECLINE OUTSIDE OF GOD’S WILL

ESTHER – RESPONDED TO HER “FINAL CALL”

JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST – REWARDS FOR OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S CALL

MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE – IN THE SECRET PLACE

Can you bear what Jesus is telling us?? – Thomas Harry

Continuing On the Mysteries of the Kingdom per Matthew 13 – and with GPS #47.4 -A Directive: Urgent Word for the Global Church in mind – a fortnight ago as I write, Thomas Harry emails:

“Hi Richard…We truly live in a pivotal moment where it feels like the dam is about to burst! The Lord has begun to release downloads of truth and revelation that this generation is barely ready for.

“The Lord gave me a word to help prepare believers for the level of truth and revelation He is releasing. Just published today so would be great if you can make people aware as I believe it will prevent people walking away from the Lord in this New Era.”

But the item got lost and then found! I acknowledge and indicate my intentions of blogging personal introductory encouragement and Thomas replies, 

“Truly Richard, the scrolls of revelation have begun to be opened and I am speechless at what the Lord is revealing, it is exciting but frightening at same time as I don’t know how most believers will be able to receive it. Thanks again for sharing it as truly believers must prepare themselves for what is coming.”

So here’s his opening section…

URGENT: CAN YOU BEAR WHAT JESUS IS TELLING THIS GENERATION?

John 16:12 “There is so much more I want to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.”

‘Jesus has begun to tell this generation things that most believers simply cannot bear. It is vital to remember Jesus said this to His 12 disciples, who had walked with Him, seen His miracles and the impossible. Yet there were some truths that were so deep and unimaginable that even they could not handle it. They walked by sight, not faith and saw Jesus face to face. They saw Him walk on water, multiply food, raise the dead and yet there were truths He could not reveal to them as they could not handle it.

‘So where does that leave this generation, if even the disciples could not bear some things? Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Jesus is going to reveal it anyway, but only to those who are hungry and have open hearts. This is a biblical principle seen in Matthew 13:11 “Jesus replied, Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of Heaven has been given to you, but not to them.”  If you do not want to be one of “them” then please open your heart and read on. The Lord has released some keys to help us avoid being one of “them.”

‘I urge all believers to patiently read this and cry out to God for an open heart. Many that do not open their hearts are going to walk away from Jesus in the years ahead. Believers need to open their hearts to God’s ways and truth, instead of long-held beliefs, that we will soon find are not in the scripture at all. I will present several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture. This is to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation. Jesus is asking some hard questions to this generation and presenting hard truths that most are not ready for, this word will help people prepare….’

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #2 – 50 years-apart testimonies meet at John’s Gospel!

PREFACE: Again, what I wrote on a Wednesday got confirmed within hours! (Previous)

After drafting this yesterday afternoon, I was ‘God-smacked’ and undone upon hearing a young man of 22 years expressing similar sentiments about the Church as I had at that age and earlier. And upon my reading out my references to scripture, he stunned me by saying the Lord’s been drawing his attention to the verses that strongly affected me!  Having graduated from Bible college, he’s about to plant a new church in London and apply that scripture; whereas over 50 years ago I got led astray through a personal perception. Today’s young apostolic church-planter is the son of the leader whom I’d already mentioned in the opening sentence below!!  Praise You Lord for such God-incidence – awesome!

Entitled ‘The importance of holy mysteries to Christian discipleship and prophecy,’ I didn’t anticipate this draft’s prophetic nature and later realised it’s better published in two parts under a fresh title.

Earlier this year a prophetic leader of new church had a picture for me during a ‘refresh’ coffee morning. Seeing a megaphone turn into a laser, he said it’s time for my blogging to move from ‘broad-brush’ coverage to a narrower, more incisive focus.  Hence, the fewer re-blogs of others’ prophecies unless they’re related to what I already know or can sense (thus confirmations or validations as ‘jigsaw pieces’ and ‘God-incidences’), or else are of especial significance.

Therefore as done recently, my personally-related introductions to re-blogs of others’ prophetic material. The next, by Thomas Harry, is directly relevant to my journey and  necessitates this full introductory blog to prepare our understanding of what Jesus is telling today’s Church.  As in #1, this comes with Thomas’ blessing for my action.

THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM

First and foremost, we need to consider what ‘mystery’ means in the Word of God:

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

The New Spirit-Filled Study Bible provides this definition:

‘Mystery’, Greek ‘musterion’ (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’

Jesus’ meaning of ‘mysteries’ is implicit in Apostle Paul’s writing to the church in Corinth on the western side of the isthmus between mainland Greece and the Peloponnese peninsular:

‘Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God‘ (1Cor 4:1)…‘And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing’ (1Cor 13.2)…’For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.’ (1 Cor 14.2)

References to ‘mystery’ appear nearly two dozen times, again mainly by Paul plus a few in The Apocalypse.  BUT note there are no references to either variant of the word in the Old Testament – so it appears this reference and related teaching were reserved only for new revelations that Jesus brought from our heavenly Father and God.

Moreover, that differential between Testaments emphasises a divine origin of especially reserved knowledge and revelation compared to that claimed for the supposed mystery schools of pagan religions, like those of ancient Egypt.

In my humble opinion, the meaning of ‘holy mystery’ is little understood and appreciated – perhaps even by those well-grounded in scripture – but is slowly improving as a result of the increasing interest in the prophetic.

As Biblical and anointed modern prophecy are dovetailing in these End-times, that state of awareness needs to change up a gear or two. Thus, all earnest followers of Jesus need to dive deeper into His living waters to be immersed in His mysteries.

Yet we do need to be wise and careful, and learning of the error in my own searching for those mysteries before I was blessed to be born-again may be a warning and help.

A PRE-CHRISTIAN JOURNEY

Readers of the two recent postings on the ‘God-incidental’ 21st anniversary of the solar eclipse of 1999 and ‘GPS #50’ on Luke 21 and the ‘Bridge over The Pond’ may recall the reference to my mother’s Catholic Sunday Missal.

When I was a youngster she’d take me to Sunday mass, yet I wasn’t sent to a Catholic school. The Latin liturgy was rather a bore but I began to pay attention to the readings in English and how they related to the Sunday’s picture in the Missal.

[NB: Next 2 paragraphs were read aloud to the young church-planter – Preface refers]

I recall thinking it must have been awesome to have been around Jesus and seen all He said and did. Also, two especially significant verses heard or read in mother’s book got embedded into my brain and, although buried in the unconscious, never got overwritten.

One was of Jesus telling his disciples they’d do greater works than He was doing! The other was by one of His closest followers and who surmised at the close of his Gospel account:If everything He’d done was written down there wouldn’t be enough room in the world to contain the books!’  (John 14:12 and 21:25)

In view of that eye-witness account and modern churches’ failure in the greater works, plus misrepresentation of their founder, I became convinced a lot of what Jesus taught had been lost, or even suppressed, by the early church. The truth must be out there somewhere, and so I decided to investigate and search it out for myself.

Next, having learned about the Western esoteric tradition, I was attracted at 21 years of age to a society that published books on the ‘mystical life’ and ‘secret doctrines’ of Jesus, thus claiming He was one of many perfected ‘masters’! Their claims were based upon Jesus introducing His disciples to the ‘mysteries’ – including reincarnation (Elijah coming as John the Baptist). Supposedly, these secret teachings continued down through the centuries in the practice of Gnosticism, the early Church’s great opponent that attracted false teachers and prophets. Gnostics claimed their initiation into the ‘mysteries’ brought them special revelations and wisdom, thereby setting them above ordinary followers of Jesus, as well as engendering all sorts of heretical theologies.

So, as a young man I got enticed and ensnared in the devil’s domain but only through the grace of Jesus Christ’s personal intervention was I brought into His Kingdom. He put me in a church that gave me a good grounding in scripture and pointing me in the right for receiving deliverance from the evil one. That’s another story, as outlined in Jesus Freed Me!

Having been immersed in that non-Christian, esoteric knowledge, I can attest that the difference between that deceptive discipline and holy revelations from the Lord is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

Born-again Christians have a personal, direct relationship with Jesus and so we can  hear His voice ourselves, and receive and operate in gifts from the Holy Spirit. Even so, all we perceive from Father, Son and Holy Spirit is to be weighed and tested against the plumb-line of the scriptures.

In the next post (scheduled for tomorrow) Revd Thomas Harry, senior leader of Falkirk Full Gospel Church, brings anointed teaching on “several scriptures that will turn our thinking upside down, simply by rightly dividing the Word of truth, by interpreting scripture by using scripture…to give believers a sample of where God is taking this generation….”

It’s time to penetrate the Darkness – Wanda Alger

This awesome word instantly reminds me of a dread dream of many decades ago that confronted me when I was trapped in the New Age movement. Unlike the fallen entity that masquerades as an angel of light behind which devouring darkness exists, this special vision put a holy fear within me in which I supra-naturally sensed the truth, as in 2 Samuel 22 (my number once again!). May you too be mightily blessed:

Yes, we are experiencing a “gross darkness” that is covering the earth. We are all feeling the effects of ongoing storms of mayhem, dark clouds of corruption, and the shifting shadows of subversion. But, lest you think the darkness is only an indication of the devil’s presence, remember there is One Greater who alone is…

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 1

This topic is rarely covered because I despise the enemy of our souls and its demonic influences. Hence, my not blogging on this for 5 years 5 months since the mini-series that began with musing upon a devilish plot to avoid the Lake of Fire. Now, another inkling dropped into mind last week and which I submitted to a few friends for weighing. I was surprised, therefore, to receive unexpected confirmation from other sources in UK, USA and New Zealand (reader Alex’s comment), as posted on Saturday.

Therefore, this isn’t for Britain alone, as I’d thought, but is globally relevant too. So let me expand upon the brief outline given in my personal appeal; Wake Up Church! 

NB: In all this please note I’m NOT saying or implying any of the Prime Minister’s or government’s decisions are directed by the demonic; only that they may be to satan’s advantage and thus benefit its ultimate agenda. 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father I ask you to protect each one of my brethren in Jesus Christ reading this by His holy sinless blood; also that access rights the demonic may have are thus rendered null and void. (I’d prepared this for publication a few days ago but awoke with excruciating hip pain on Tuesday that necessitates resting. A prophetical pastor who’s praying for me confirmed my suspicion of it being a demonic attack.)

MASK / MARK OF THE BEAST

Trying to return to sleep after waking early on Saturday 18th July I was suddenly struck by: ‘WE’RE ONLY 1 LETTER AWAY FROM THE MARK OF THE BEAST – WAKE UP CHURCH!’ (maSk…maRk)

That is, we need to realise that compulsory wearing of masks in public is a trial-run, or testing, the progress and outcome of which will inform and lead into the imposition of the infamous Mark of the Beast. It is a softening up and preparing the global population for such an eventuality, as foretold in the Book of Revelation. Therefore, it is increasingly important for Christian leaders to teach about being prepared for the End-Times.

Click to read ScriptureForAll Hebrew Interlinear Bible

[‘He – the Beast from the Sea – causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’ NKJV Rev 13:16-17]

Upon recalling the gist of Revelation chapter 13, it dawned upon me we’re not only ‘one letter’ but also ‘one inch’ away from carrying the full marking, or ‘carved-effect’ (original Greek). The new legal requirement from last Friday imposes a mandatory restriction upon anyone wanting to go shopping and buy anything that focuses not only upon a person’s mask, thereby highlighting their forehead and eyes – its edge being on the bridge of their nose, is an inch below the forehead – but also upon waving a hand in order to buy without handing over cash or cheque, or tapping one’s own private code.

Note two salient points:
  • This Jewish year 5780 is that of Hebrew letter ‘pey’, symbolising the ‘mouth’ and its method of communicating: eg in praise and worship the Lord.
  • the spirit that works in the ‘sons of disobedience’ is also ‘prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2).

Hence, the significance of events focusing upon the effects of everyone’s breathing!!!! AND the poison spewed out in mainstream media headlines and opinions that curses the nation!

Next, it occurred to me this is the 7th instance of this topic cropping up recently through unconnected events.

And they appeared as two lots of triplets!  The first 3 centered on a Friday, as told in End-Times Briefing 13; the second 3 arrived on a Monday (government’s muddle, data from White House author, top Hong Kong lab’s whistle-blower). Moreover, I came under a Jezebelic attack, which the Lord countered by more data. You may recall this blog gives copious examples of ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ arriving like ‘GPS’ (global prophecy signals). The two confirmations mentioned above are the latest example.

Theological Perspectives

I ask that we lay aside any personal, doctrinal preferences when reading Revelation because there’s EIGHT theological interpretations of this profound book, as summarised in my study Bible. Let’s not, therefore, be too dogmatic in assessing my remarks. In my humble opinion, the Lord may permit the imprecision in order to ‘play His cards close to His chest’, keeping the adversary in the dark.  Therefore, if we adhere to a dogmatic ‘timetable’ then satan’s strategy could blindside us by imposing the Mark by nefarious means and catch us in its snare unawares.

Our adversary would want to prevent any possibility of a global Revival and harvesting of souls by getting peoples’ unwitting allegiance to its schemes and thus consequential damnation!  Heaven’s reaping would rob hell of its harvest of humans!!

With reference to my recent Briefings, Jane H asks: “Regarding the mark of the beast surely this will not proceed revival will it?  How can we spread the gospel to anyone having the mark?”

Clearly, Jane has Rev 14:9-11 in mind and which clearly implies those with this Mark are owned by satan, and thus share in its decreed doom. These dread scriptures foretell no possibility of changing allegiance away from satan in this event. However, it may be possible for those who didn’t take the Mark to be saved during an individual’s ‘revival’.

Some may argue the Mark of the Beast won’t apply to the Church because we will have been raptured into heaven (‘snatched up’ – 1 Thess 4:17) before its introduction: ie. the Mark is imposed during the 7-year Great Tribulation. I find, however, scripture does not unequivocally support that view – for example:

  • Rev 12:17 – And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
  • Rev 13:7 – It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.
  • Rev 14:12 – Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on’,”
  • Rev 15:2 – And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

Dr David Pawson’s Opinion

In his overview of the epic story of God’s relationship with His people,  world-renowned Bible teacher David Pawson ‘unlocks’ The Apocalypse in 200 pages distilled from a ‘lifetime’s worth of insights’.:

Chapters 6-16…’are relevant to all believers, whatever their contemporary situation…The main motive for preparing to be faithful under pressure is to be able to face Him without shame. Perhaps that explains the reminder inserted between the 6th and 7th bowls of wrath (incidentally, confirming some Christians will still be on earth at the time): “Behold I come like a thief!…” (Rev 16:15…)

An Informed Reaction:

One reviewer’s response:

“The LORD has set you as a voice, to blow the trumpet and get The WORD out. Absolutely; we are seeing the governmental systems and structure of the beast trying to shape out in a more vicious form in the earth. Many political leaders of nations do not know what they stand against; some decisions that they implement are not theirs; if the grounds are lost in the spirit by The Church and the enemy gains a right to impose a sentence; the governments over nations can wield little or no power of resistance. We must realize that when we also pray and gain victories in the spirit; the leadership of nations will have the power to resist the already established victories in heaven. Things are shaping out; the direction of the dance moves that policies reflect shows us what grounds must be contended for to be regained in the spirit. The antichrist is more than a person taking up an office; it’s major stronghold will be the system it sets up; rather than who becomes the figurehead”

Another friend reports encountering email gremlins when replying to me, as in part 2.

Important 2 years ago; MORE SO NOW! – Chris G Bennett

This morning Chris republished on Facebook a highly suitable follow-on to my recent End-Times Briefings and personal appeal to all Christians to “Wake up!”:

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – July 2018!!!   EVEN CLOSER NOW !!!!

There’s some things going down at the moment that we should ALL note and pray about. SIGNS OF THE TIMES have never been so obvious. Never before in such plain sight.

Earthquakes, fires, drought and flood, evil being called good, and good being persecuted as evil. The list goes on and we haven’t even started on wars, rumours of wars, swamp draining, and political shenanigans.

I really have only one message today – WAKE UP !!!

WAKE UP CHURCH

WAKE UP PEOPLE OF GOD

WAKE UP CHRISTIANS

The SIGNS OF THE TIMES say that the LORD IS COMING SOON. Hear the words of the Lord for today.

“IT IS TIME FOR JOY!! I AM COMING SOON!, says the Lord.

“IT IS TIME FOR ALL MY PEOPLE TO PREPARE. PERSECUTION MAY COME – BE JOYFUL. WARS, FLOODS, FIRES, AND EARTHQUAKES MAY COME – BE JOYFUL BECAUSE THE TIME OF MY COMING IS SOON. I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS FOR THIS SEASON. SEEDS OF REJOICING, SEEDS OF COMPASSION, SEEDS OF LOVE. BUT MOST OF ALL I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS OF HUNGER – SEEDS THAT WILL BURST INTO LIFE AS SOON AS THEY ARE WATERED BY MY PRESENCE.”

“BE PREPARED!”, says the Lord, “FOR I COME WITH JOYFUL CELEBRATION. DANCING AND SINGING SHALL BE A SIGN FOR YOU. THEN SHALL COME MIRACLES, HEALING, AND RELEASE. ALL THIS SHALL BE FOLLOWED BY THE SOUND OF WEEPING, JOYFUL WEEPING IN MY PRESENCE, AS MY GLORY FALLS ON YOUR MEETINGS – IN CHURCH AND ON THE STREETS!” says the Lord.

“I AM COMING SOON!” says the Lord God Almighty
