Tenacity and joy in times of turmoil and distraction – Neil Mackereth

Dear Neil emailed me on Thursday evening and alluded to my remarks about ‘Double Portion’ in connection with one of the day’s blogs Veronika West – 5.:

“Thanks, Richard, I pray against distraction. Be encouraged, if you are effectively carrying out God’s appointed duties (which you are), there will be attempts to divert your attention, to disturb and trouble your mind. Shake the dust off your feet and move on, remaining focussed on that which is your clear calling. Blessings, Neil” 

Friday evening, forwarding the following he writes, “Hi Richard, you stirred my imagination!”  MOREOVER, his paragraph of Obedience and Joy exactly mirrors what I’d thought for answering one critic – should I get the time!

His previous was confirmation that my activity and reaction to anyone who may ‘play devil’s advocate’ is the Lord’s will for me. The second same-day confirmation came with Wanda Alger’s even more poignant paper on the role of Watchmen, but which I didn’t see until the weekend.

Here’s Neil’s latest:

TENACITY AND JOY IN TIMES OF TURMOIL AND DISTRACTION

IMAGINATION

When I saw it was Richard Barker’s 3,000th blog, and then his “Wow-Wotta-Wednesday” comment, I had a picture of him running about with his hair on fire (no human was hurt in the making of this vision!).  [RB:So that’s where it’s gone! LOL]

This, and an awareness of his dedication, led to further thoughts: The Lord laid the words tenacity and joy on my heart. A joy that reflects the reality of knowing Jesus.
Richard exemplifies “Speak, for your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3:10), whereas I am more inclined to the “here am I, send me” (Isaiah 6:8) (but not tonight, there’s a great programme on tele!) school of thought. What hinders me from hearing and obeying is the noise and distraction of the “must be done” things and the lure of entertainment. My imagination is dulled.

Are you disturbed and distracted by the world and by the plethora of insights, prophecies, theories (conspiracy or otherwise), theses, and antitheses that abound, during this time of immense shaking and sifting? Do you have “itching ears” in this unprecedent time of astonishing and often intriguing information? Weighing and testing has never been more important! That does not mean we shouldn’t seek to hear what the prophets and reliable information sources are saying.

Changing tack slightly (or rather, returning to my main theme); there is no doubt that Imagination is a gift of God. We can use it or abuse it, focus it on God or on entertainment (false idols): use it to stir up fear or to see God’s hand at work in all that is going on around us. We are in a time of trial – it has never been more important for us to ensure that our imagination is in the service of God.

I am absolutely certain Jesus will not be outsmarted by the machinations of the evil one. Even so, sometimes my thoughts and actions indicate a deep down (subconscious?) doubt: God help my uncertainty.

What we hear and how we react depends on our disposition.

PEACE AND TENACITY

“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3).

Tenacity is more than persistence; in spiritual matters it includes unwavering confidence that what the Lord has told us is absolute truth and, where what He tells us is about future events, that they will happen. Victory in assured.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).

God is not disturbed by what is happening. If I can step back and say that all this turmoil and confusion is beyond my understanding, and if I can relax and watch how God is going to unravel it, then I will see His magnificence and all-embracing authority. No problem is too difficult for God!

OBEDIENCE AND JOY

“If you love me you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15).

Conviction of sin and repentance are essential steps on the road to giving our lives to Jesus; followed by baptism and growing faith as we move forward in discipleship. How can we ever thank God enough for His awesome and supernatural intervention, in order to provide us with a way to salvation? That is the very essence of joy!

CONCLUSION

There is a balance to be struck in relation to necessary activities and entertainment. As with the oft misquoted “money is the root of all evil” scripture (which actually says: “the love of money is the root of all evil”); so also loving entertainment and distractions too much; ie, to the exclusion of seeking first the Kingdom of Heaven (see Matthew 6:33), is tantamount to rejecting the best that God has planned for us.

The Lord made it clear to me that He has everything under control, and that while it is essential that we seek to understand what is happening, we should not let our hearts be troubled. We are indeed greatly blessed to live in such momentous times. We can rise to the challenges, in a spirit of peace and joy, knowing that our God is mighty and invincible.

Afternote: Richard’s inspirational “Watch” has fired my imagination over many years; I look forward to the next 3000 blogs!

RB’s Footnote:

Easy-to-read introduction to the significance of Biblical prophecyI first met Neil at his excellent extensive course on this topic at Winchester Vineyard Church ten or so years ago. He was one of the few in receipt of my pre-blog emails on current affairs as they relate to End-times.

The outcome of the two courses is this book written as an easy, conversational-style introduction to what the Bible teaches about the climax of history and the end of the world, as we know it.

WARNING: don’t be duped by Biden’s claim of being a devout Catholic – Archbishop demands he stop! (F/P #10.35)

Regular readers will not be surprised about this grave issue and it is good to get further confirmation of the deep difference between Christian beliefs professed by President Trump (as I investigated herein) and by the one currently in office:

Jim Graves writes in The Catholic World Report: (emphases added)

Joseph F. Naumann, 71, has served as Archbishop of Kansas City, Kansas since 2005. He was born in St. Louis, was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of St. Louis in 1975 and an auxiliary bishop in 1997. He served in a variety of parishes and administrative roles before coming to Kansas City as coadjutor archbishop (with the right of succession) in 2004.

Throughout his priesthood he has been active in supporting the pro-life movement, and serves as chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities. On January 28, Archbishop Naumann celebrated the annual March for Life vigil Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. In his homily, he admonished Catholics to fight the culture of death with “prayer, fasting and almsgiving….

CWR: Mr. Biden professes to be a devout Catholic, yet is 100% pro-choice on abortion. How do you think America’s bishops ought to respond to this situation?

Archbishop Naumann: I can tell you how this bishop is responding. The president should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic, and acknowledge that his view on abortion is contrary to Catholic moral teaching. It would be a more honest approach from him to say he disagreed with his Church on this important issue and that he was acting contrary to Church teaching.

When he says he is a devout Catholic, we bishops have the responsibility to correct him. Although people have given this president power and authority, he cannot define what it is to be a Catholic and what Catholic moral teaching is.

What he is doing now is usurping the role of the bishops and confusing people. He’s declaring that he’s Catholic, and is going to force people to support abortion through their tax dollars. The bishops need to correct him, as the president is acting contrary to the Catholic faith.

CWR: Fr. Robert Morey of St. Anthony Church in Florence, South Carolina (who retired this year) refused to give then-candidate Joe Biden Holy Communion at Mass in 2019 because of Biden’s pro-abortion stance. What do you think of Fr. Morey’s action?

Archbishop Naumann: I think he was acting on and following his conscience. I believe the president has the responsibility not to present himself for Holy Communion. When Catholics receive the Eucharist, they are acknowledging the Real Presence of Jesus, and also belief in the teachings of the Church. President Biden doesn’t believe in the Church’s teachings on the Sanctity of Human Life, and he should not put the priest in the situation where he has to decide whether or not to allow him to receive the Eucharist. He should know that after 78 years as a Catholic.

CWR: Would you give Mr. Biden Communion?

Archbishop Naumann: I don’t think I’ll ever be in that situation; I don’t anticipate him coming to Mass in Kansas and coming up to me to receive Communion.

I do believe that his bishop has a responsibility to dialogue with him about this issue. What he is supporting is a serious evil. I don’t know the disposition of his mind and heart, but his act of supporting legal abortion is wrong.

PREVIOUS POSTS

Within days of the election I blogged on Archbishop Vigano castigating US bishops for claiming Biden is Catholic president, and cited Bishop Stika’s open question to Biden on Twitter:

“At your judgment before God, how will you explain changing your position about abortion and how will you explain promoting no limits and allowing all protections removed protecting the most innocent?” the bishop asked. “Will you tell God you supported the ultimate child abuse because of the American Constitution?”

Then a month ago in ‘Two President’ prophecy Coming to pass… I closed with A Biblical Plumb-line:

Heavenly Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, please send Holy Spirit to convict Joseph Biden of his sin in furthering the practice of child-sacrifice to Molech, and bring him to deep repentance and public renunciation of this sin and of this practice.

Standing as a Watchman in all the contradictions – Wanda Alger

“For thus the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman; let him announce what he sees.” (Isaiah 21:6 ESV)
A watchman is positioned to scan the horizon and report anything he/she deems to be amiss. By announcing what he/she sees, it is up to the people to prepare and then decide what to do. The watchman’s role is not necessarily to interpret what they see, but simply alert others to possible dangers by sharing critical information from a strategic perspective. Interestingly, just two verses later the text reads “Then he who saw, CRIED OUT…” That term, in its original language, actually says, “Then he who saw, CRIED OUT LIKE A LION!” In other words, when a watchman announces something that has been revealed, their announcement is backed by the authority of the Lion of Judah! One of the ways the Lion roars – is through the watchmen! […continue by clicking link…] STANDING AS A WATCHMAN IN THE CONTRADICTIONS

Wanda gives a sound summary of what it’s all about and I ask you to pray that I may serve the Lord more effectively.

Wow-Wotta-Wednesday: Know our enemy’s strategy – Neil Mackereth

On Wednesday evening Neil emails me saying, “Another “God-incidence” re parallels with Veronika’s blog!” [Satan has power…But it is limited]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY

INTRODUCTION

I happen to believe that the Word of God is a necessary and authoritative guide for our well-being. It is clear, accurate, necessary and sufficient to all our needs. The Bible is best read with integrity, in context and, above all, with Holy Spirit guidance. It is explains God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and it tells us what will happen next.

I make my views plain so that what I am about to write will not be misconstrued. The Bible does not say what liberals want to hear. In fact, if God chose to publish on social media (e.g., Facebook or Twitter) His Ten Commandments, His account would be closed. The same censorship would apply to the publication of any one of many other scriptures that provide advice on inter-relational behaviour!

What is particularly distressing is that many in the church agree with, and some even encourage, the liberal agenda, which advocates evil in the guise of freeing people from constraint. In so doing, they are complicit with Satan’s schemes and, in order to confirm their misguided views, they either ignore, adjust or blatantly misinterpret Scripture. We pray for today’s false teachers and false prophets to be enlightened.

Satan must be delighted. However, things don’t always go his way and certainly, on big issues, his defeats have been spectacular! Nevertheless, I believe we should seek to be both aware and wary of our adversary and keep careful watch for satanic intrigue and manipulation. Victory is assured but battles will continue to the end.

Satan’s PLAN / STRATEGY

Satan knows what the Bible says and that the book of Revelation shows that Jesus will return to Jerusalem to take His rightful place on the throne of David, as King of the Jews.  He will rule His people and the world from Jerusalem.  Satan’s options for preventing this (and his ultimate banishment to “the lake of burning sulphur” Revelation 20:10) include endeavours to:

1) tempt Jesus to sin and so become unworthy as Saviour

2) destroy Jesus;

3) disperse the Jews and fragment and undermine their national identity and/or;

4) annihilate all Jews so that Jesus has no Jewish Kingdom to return to and rule;

5) prevent the establishment of a Jewish nation state (Israel) and/or

6) destroy Israel or Jerusalem, or to divide Jerusalem (i.e., to ensure control remains in the hands of non-believers).

He tried the first and was unsuccessful. He tried the second and was spectacularly defeated, when Jesus rose from the dead.  The remainder (3 to 6) have been ongoing through history. One success has been his endeavours to encourage many in the church to avoid the study of and teaching on the Book of Revelation. I want to emphasise, however, that Satan suffered a huge setback with the reestablishment of Israel as a nation state in 1948 and the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967.

WHAT’S THIS HAVE TO DO WITH OUR CURRENT SITUATION?

Satan’s next move is to seek to achieve 6 (above) by establishing a “New World Order” i.e., to rule the world through his henchmen (the Antichrist, the False Prophet and their followers). When I say “next move” it has in fact been under development for many centuries. Satan is a liar and deceiver, the architect of all things evil, but he lacks originality and often seeks to mimic (e.g., Satan, the Antichrist and the False Prophet can be said to be a “trinity”, albeit unholy!).

He also seeks to conceal his intentions: those who are carrying forward his plans often operate in confidential cabals. These secret societies (e.g., the Knights Templar, the Illuminati, the Freemasons) have provided continuity to generations of extremely powerful people who have been influencing and manipulating events behind the scenes. There may, of course, be a secret society whose security is so successful that we have no knowledge of its existence, as a group (though we might feel we could name two or three likely members!).

THE NEXT STEP

What does seem clear, to those who have eyes to see, is that the “puppet masters”, whoever they are, have globalist intentions. More recently, the idea of distinct cabals has become clouded as particular groups within society (e.g., the “deep state” in the USA) have taken centre stage.

However, the possibility of intrigue and corruption being revealed has led to a new development. The best way to hide a diabolical scheme is in a forest of conspiracy theories. To cover the main thrust of the globalist intentions (Satan’s plan) there is a second conspiracy which aims to create a multitude of conspiracy theories, to camouflage the primary (real) conspiracy!

Put another way, the conspirators are content for people to consider revelations of their intentions to be “conspiracy theories” and so have them dismissed as fantasy.

Furthermore, their grip on main-stream media (including who is employed and what is broadcast) is a textbook example of how to control information and manipulate opinion. They are able to ridicule and discredit all views that run counter to their agenda. This repressive hold may also account for the lack of modern equivalents to the Watergate scandal investigative journalists (Woodward and Bernstein).

CONCLUSION

As I have said before, we are witnessing an essential step on the road to a New World Order. At the same time, the economies of the world are reeling from the effects of the pandemic. Fertile ground which is paving the way for the Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” plans for a global economic system, which is a vital element in the establishment of a “One World Government”.

Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled in our time: what an immense privilege and blessing that is! Some things are inevitable (prophesied). Even so, I have every expectation that there will be times of parenthesis (as in Revelation). Periods set aside where the globalist plans stall, allowing opportunities for revival and Kingdom expansion. These set-asides are beyond Satan’s ability to prevent, beyond the limits he has been set by God.  

We pray for a mighty revival, before the final harvest of separation (wheat and tares).

Prophetic visions and words shared by Veronika West – 1 PostScript

VERONIKA’S WORD satan has power …BUT (previous post) IS KEY!

THE WHOLE POPULATION – EVEN CHURCHGOERS! – ARE BOWING THE KNEE TO THE SPIRIT OF FEAR RUNNING RAMPANT ACROSS OUR NATIONS.

3,000th post! Prophetic visions and words shared by Veronika West – 1

A HUGE THANK YOU to all my regular readers and contributors, subscribers, visitors and folk who occasionally drop-in here and on Facebook, for it’s you who encourage me to keep going since I went public by launching this blog on 21.11.2011 – now it’s heading for 2 million views!! 

Our dear friend Veronika West posted this at Ignite Ireland Ministry on Saturday prior to a full-some prophetic flow:

Then yesterday, 16th February, she writes,

“SATAN HAS POWER….BUT….IT IS LIMITED….;FOR THE ONE WHO HOLDS THE LEASH….DETERMINES THE PERIMETERS AND SETS THE BOUNDARIES”…!!!

•••Yesterday afternoon while out walking and talking with Holy Spirit the Lord quickened a powerful word to me,…that I shared concerning the LIMITATIONS OF THE ENEMIES’ POWER….,so on my return home I scrambled through my past prophetic journals and found the very word that the Lord had suddenly flooded my spirit with on my walk….
•••As you read…LET FAITH, HOPE AND EXPECTATION BEGIN TO RISE AND EVERY THOUGHT OF FEAR, DOUBT AND UNBELIEF BE UPROOTED AND TORN DOWN…!

That word was published on September 4th 2019 by His Kingdom Prophecy, as below:

Exodus 20:18-21 applies to 20th January and President Trump – Hebrew meaning of ‘Biden’

The People Afraid of God’s Presence

18 Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. 19 Then they said to Moses, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.”

20 And Moses said to the people, “Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.” 21 So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was. (Exodus 20;18-21 NKJV BibleGateway)

In the evening of the day of the US Presidential Inauguration, 20th January 2021, which I didn’t watch, I attended a zoom meeting with Catch the Fire Church, Farnborough. Pastor Christopher Bird invited us to focus first upon Exodus 20;18-21 and then spend time ‘soaking’ in the Lord’s presence.

However, immediately upon reading the last verse I instinctively exclaimed, “That’s where Trump’s gone!” – that is, into a personal, closer time with the Lord. Now please do not think I’m equating Donald Trump to Moses but realised the American would have the opportunity for spending quality time with the Lord in preparation for his return!

I recalled Moses had already been up Mt Sinai (chapter 19), returned to the people and presented them with ‘Ten Commandments’ the Lord had given him (Chapter 20:1-17). BUT whilst he was away, the people ignored those requirements for holy living as His l people and gave themselves up to idolatry and unashamed behaviour.  It also involved rebellion against not only Moses as their leader but also against the Lord as their God (Exod 32). Upon his descent from the mountain the rebellion came to the ‘golden calf’ climax right in Moses’ face. He told them to choose whom they were to follow and thus  separate themselves. Very tragically, three thousand rebels lost their lives and the Lord told Moses, Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book.” 

Many years ago, when I was deeply into New Age doctrine and practices, I’d seen in a  dream that dark cloud riven by supra-natural  thunder and lightning, indicative of God’s awesome presence and been filled with fear. Therefore, I could relate personally to the peoples’ fear in that extract from Exodus 20. However, now there’s no fear for me being with the Lord as a blood-bought, born-again Christian.

All that scriptural background brings me to the associated revelation of that insight into Donald Trump’s ‘sabbatical’ withdrawal with the Lord indicates that events will get much worse in America as its leaders will take it much deeper into rebellion against the Lord. That is, they will personally pay the heaviest price in their names being blotted from the Lamb’s Book of Life!  And God will bring His judgement upon the dis-United States of America…

CONFIRMATION

Last night I happened to note and played this short video of Perry Stone.:

At 2:20 mark in referring to 2016, he tells about the Hebrew meaning of number ’45’ for President 45 Donald Trump. At 3:46 Perry says there’s nothing special about ’46’ but then notes the meaning of the Hebrew sounds for ‘Biden’ = “Alas, Judgement!”

DISCERNMENT – The Marshall Report

The word “discernment” has a basic definition which is the ability to judge well, a refinement, cultivation, and sophistication. There is also a Christian definition which discernment in that sense is “perception in the absence of judgment with a view to obtaining spiritual direction and understanding”. In these trying times it is important to use […]

GPS #57.5 – Elijah’s 57-word prayer against servants of false god Baal

Click to play video (and please bear with background drone)

Whilst I was busily drafting GPS #57.4 a reader kindly emailed a link to the above video by a brother whom I’ve not heard previously.  He closes with a commendably staunch defence of prophets who’ve foretold a second term for Donald Trump and fierce rebuttal of critics (eg. as I’ve encounter today). Elaine V writes,

Dear Richard, 

‘Quite unintentionally I found myself coming across this Elijah Stream of Robin Bullock entitled 2 presidents 2 inaugurations. Intrigued by the title I explored only to be hit by the very first revelation of the 57 word prayer of Elijah defeating the prophets of Baal. [RB: 1Kings 18]

‘I immediately thought of your blog!! Here’s the summary of the rest of the video:

‘Robin goes on to give a good expose of how Biden was falsely rammed into an office that will consume him. He goes on to rebuke those rebuking the prophets & saying we must pray for Trump to win – HE has already done that. Church now needs to exercise faith that DJT will walk into office.

‘Robin then relates to Kim’s prophecy re 2 Presidents. When he heard it he heard the Lord say “TWO Presidents; TWO Inaugurations”. He’s waiting to see how God fulfills that.

‘Do enjoy another piece of the q-saw!’

Scripture does NOT tell believers to obey evil laws! — Mario Murillo

Today we woke to the up to the sad truth that Democrats  have declared war. They are demanding unconditional surrender. No only from the church but from innocent citizens. Their war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders. Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not.

A new, unforgettable Christmas gift to the nations – prophetic word through Kent Christmas

Thank you to Chris G Bennett for alerting me to this awesome messgae, and to Carolyn Stewart for kindly transcribing this Word brought by Pastor Kent Christmas on 13th December 2020. Please note, purely for ease of reading I’ve replaced most of Kent’s “saith God/the Lord” with periods:

“Today is a little bit different. I know it is Christmas time, but yesterday morning God began to speak to me prophetically, and I feel compelled to release this word today.  I think it will be an encouragement to you.  For some reason God waits to the end of the year generally to begin to speak to me the word of the Lord, and I know that a lot of us are wondering what God’s going to do in our nation.  So I think today, God will give you some answers as I release what the Lord has to say.

“Let us bow our heads: “Holy Spirit, I’m so thankful Lord for who you are.  Now Holy Ghost I stand as a servant of the Lord today.  May you speak, God, to the nations, to the church today, which you want to convey into their spirits.  We thank you, Lord, for the gift of prophecy.  We thank you, God, that you have got forgotten us today.  God, This is a season that we are truly going to celebrate hallelujah in Jesus’ name.”

“The Lord says, “What I am doing now, what you are seeing is not resurrection of something old.”  But God said: “I am birthing something new in the earth that you have not seen.  In My mercy…I have been silent, because I have been giving evil men time to repent.  But just now as evil has declared war on Me and on the Church, so do I declare war on you…I am sending My word forth into the earth and it will not return unto Me unfulfilled, but all that I have declared over the decades saith the Lord is going to come to pass in this hour, and it will come quickly.  For you are in the third day,..and in this day is a day of resurrection of the glory and of the power of the Holy Ghost.  My servants, who are My prophets that have spoken my words to the nations have not prophesied in their own name, they have not spoken fables, but they have declared what “thus saith the Lord” in My name. Know this,” says the Lord of Hosts, “I will not ‑‑ I will not,” says God, “let evil men and so‑called believers who are full of unbelief make Me a liar, for I am not a man that I should repent…for I am still God and when I send forth My Word it goes forth as a sword,..and it is going to pierce the very strongholds of the power of darkness.  Just as I came to the earth the first time as God in flesh, so am I now coming to you and to this nation and across the earth in this Christmas season to give you a gift that you will never forget.

“What you have been watching in the media is the spirit of that woman Jezebel trying to replace the woman called the Church in the earth.  But the voice of the Church in this hour are My prophets…and they will not be silenced, and the Word of the Lord that I have released in this hour: though it looks impossible…it will come to pass.  For all that I have declared to you…will not come by the power of men, it will not come through politics or law or even Supreme Courts…but it will come forth by the power of the Holy Ghost in this hour.  Just as Jezebel in the days of Elijah drove the prophets into caves, so she in 2020 drove My Church into hiding.  But just as I was only in the cave for three days…so is My Church coming out of the cave and coming out of hiding.  For the voice of righteousness will not be silenced, says the Lord, and you will not muzzle Me…I will not sit down as a small child in a corner and yield to a power that is not as great as I, for I am still God,” saith the Lord.

“In the year 2021 of January, the angel Michael is sounding the ram’s horn as a call to war against false religion and counterfeit churches in the earth.  Every pastor in church that has crawled into bed with this spirit…I am now going to uncover and I am going to judge…For there are many buildings that are built that have the word “church” on them and a cross,..but they do not honour My name.  They are not about My presence and they do not care for the poor and those who have been laden with sin.  But in this day I am raising up a Church that is glorious, without spot, wrinkle or blemish. Just as the Devil has tried to put despair and intimidation on My people I now release from My Throne-room…a holy garment of bonus on them,” says the Lord.

“For there is a spirit of power and authority that is going to rise on you, and I put the spirit of fear and intimidation on those that have tried to shut up the house of the Lord.  And as I am watched, hallelujah,..the houses of the enemy become silent.  There is now a sound of the Lion of Judah that is getting ready to come up out of the house of the Lord.  You will no longer be known as a house that is heavy and in despair, but there is joy,..for even as I came to the earth the first time and the angels shouted there is joy in the earth, so am I coming to you in this Christmas season,” saith the Lord. “I have not forgotten what I have promised you, and though it looks impossible, and though the media says it will not happen, and though they have already crowned one man a king, I say to you, he is a false king, for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords is yet to be raised up, for the Throne-room of the Lord will not be occupied by an imposter, but it will be set upon by the glorious God of all eternity.

“Know this,” saith God, “Have I not always told you that though I tarry long when you pray, that when I do come I will show up quickly?  What I am getting ready to do in the next few weeks…will be a quick work.  It will not be done in part, it will not leave a back door for an enemy to come through.  But this time,..I am going to finish what I started, and for four years the Glory of the Lord shall descend upon the earth in a way that you have never seen it,…for I have waited to show Myself in this time of destiny, because I wanted the enemy to show himself first.  Now that he is uncovered, you are going to see the anointing of Elijah being released in the earth,..and harvest will begin.

“Just as I had to wait until Goliath’s sword could be put in the hand of David before the enemy was destroyed; just as I waited for Jordan to flood before Israel could cross over; just as I waited for Mordecai to be promoted until Haman’s gallows were built, know this: the enemy has built a gallows to hang the Church, but I am getting ready to reverse,” saith God,

“What has been declared in this nation and I am going to take the weapon that the enemy formed against the house of the Lord, and I am going to cause the enemy to be destroyed by the very weapon that he forged in the fires of hell to destroy the people of God.  In the next four years I am giving the nations to the Church as their inheritance.  Not just a few, not just a bit, not just those that are not under the Iron Curtain.  I am invading the Muslim nations.  I am invading the Communist nations.  I am tearing down the iron curtains,..I am also taking the wealth of the wicked and I am transferring it to the saints of the most high. I did not cause you to be poor.  I take pleasure in the prosperity of My servant – land, titles, deeds, money, businesses, wealth and inventions – are now being released out of the heavens onto the saints of the most high, for what I am going to do will not be a cheap move, but it will be the riches of glory being displayed on the earth for what I am going to do accomplish,” says God.

“What I am now going to do will be like an explosion of My Power and My Glory in the earth.  I am going to cripple China for what they have done to the nations, because they have tried to remove Me from the earth, I am also going to deal with their leaders, and there is going to be a release of the presence of God and revival in the nation of China.  Just as hell released a global epidemic in the earth to advance the purpose of Satan, I am now releasing in every nation My Presence and My Glory to bring forth the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.  As you have seen wave of a death in the earth, now shall you see life and divine healing released in the earth, and the shout that is coming out of the people of God is going to tear down the ancient strongholds that have ruled the nations.  So get the ready,” says God, “not months from now but you are on the precipice…of the greatest outpouring of the Glory of God, and today I lift off you,..the spirit of heaviness, and I release upon you the garment of praise.  Shout unto the Lord, for this is the hour in which My mercy has been released upon My people,” saith God. ” Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!”

AMEN, let it be so please dear Lord..

PS: A reader’s comment of last Saturday is noteworthy:

“In the Sky News this morning they mentioned that the conjunction of two planets creating the ‘Christmas Star’ due to be seen on December 21st, was last seen in 1620. Wondering why this date rang a bell I googled it to find it was the year the Mayflower first set out. Perhaps, in the words of the slogan ‘Wise men sought Jesus, and wise men still do’, it is time for America to ‘set out’ again, on a fresh journey, seeking Jesus?”

GPS #56.3 – Incremental Steps To Hell…CHOOSE…

Neil Mackereth’s Incremental Steps To Hell published yesterday is sub-titledChoose This Day Whom You Will Follow’.

Overnight the following appeared in The Marshall Report:

WELCOME TO 2020 – RED PILL, BLUE PILL, 30 PIECES OF SILVER – CHOOSE!

We’ve seen this reference before to red and blue pills from ‘The Matrix’ film regarding 12 straight facts re Covid.  And now there’s a further ‘take’ from Dianne Marshall.:

The game is on. 

To begin the game, you must choose your side.

‘If you choose the red pill you are MAGA, patriotic and awake and must do whatever it takes to save America and fight for Freedom.

‘If you choose the blue pill you will wear a mask, social distance, take a vaccine and tell on your neighbors who don’t comply.

‘Then there is the 30 pieces of silver. If you choose this option, you are a sell out and among ANTIFA and the thugs on the street that represent dark matter…(click to read)’

Media corruption and false prophets – Neil Mackereth

The day after sending me ‘Britannia’ Neil writes,

“My goodness, what a deluge of information on corruption in high places. Deception, turbulence and uproar are to be expected; nevertheless it is daunting, even though we know the victory is assured. I felt called to write a follow-on from the Britannia document yesterday.

“I know you cover prophecy testing principles in some depth in earlier blogs. However, I sensed the Lord wanted it moved into the light.”

MEDIA CORRUPTION AND FALSE PROPHETS

Introduction

While writing an article entitled Britannia, I felt called to ask God about “Thus Saith the Lord” type statements made by modern-day prophets. The insights that followed form the basis of this document. These are dark and dangerous times and, as foretold in the Bible, things will get worse. Then Jesus will return; HALLELULIA!

l have been taught that believers should endeavour to be so “one with God” that we do not need to keep asking Him for His guidance. When I look back over my life, and at the history of world events, I can see God’s amazing hand at work. It is possible to discern that His will and appointed order has been operating from ancient times. We can be certain that the His plans, based on His divine design, will be fulfilled. Though the victory is assured, looking forward is still very challenging: I find it necessary to seek His guidance on which course to take and who to believe.

Media Bias

How do we discern truth, when media reporting, on nearly every outlet and topic, has become tainted by the liberal agenda? It is apparent that the only acceptable narratives, in publishing terms, are those which support the “politically correct” view. Anyone who objects to this new norm is ridiculed and/or accused of intolerance, stupidity, racism, fascism, being bigoted or in need of “re-education”.

This bias is seen vividly in the media treatment of President Trump.

The majority of evangelical Christians in the USA see President Trump in a very different light to that portrayed by the media. What is not reported is that Donald Trump’s presidency has been, in many respects, one of the most successful administrations in the past 50 years. Before the Covid-19 restrictions, the US had the lowest unemployment rate in decades and the Black community’s economic and social conditions were improving. President Trump took an unprecedented pro-life stand and reversed abortion laws. He has been consistent in his support of Israel and has brokered remarkable rapprochement between Israel and a number of Arab countries. [RB: see Is Donald Trump’s Heart for God’s Kingdom? – part 4: Faith in Action]

The media appear united in not wanting to report anything good about President Trump.

They take a similar myopic view on all things connected with Israel.

Anyone who dares to express an opinion that runs counter to the accepted narrative is punished. Reporting has the power to influence, and biased reporting has the power to corrupt. The worse it gets the more it deceives. It has led to confusion, abuse, conspiracy theories, misinformation, “witch hunts” on social media and disturbances on the streets. Balanced public discussion is well-nigh impossible on topics like: abortion, Israel, “Black Lives Matter”, same sex marriage, gender and sexual orientation issues and education.

It is much easier to compromise for the sake of peace than to face the abuse. But we must not compromise: we must “Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love” 1 Cor 16:13

False Prophets

The insidious spirit of deception has infiltrated all levels of society, including the church. We shouldn’t be surprised, Jesus highlights the problem of deception, in the early verses of Matthew 24. In particular, He talks about false prophets. In my ponderings, the Lord made it clear to me that all scripture is God-given and can be trusted. However, some who purport to be “called by His name” have “re-interpreted” and corrupted what the Bible says, to suit their own devices and desires. Many of these deceivers have considerable influence.

On the positive side, for those of us who believe we are in End-Times, Scripture is quite clear. ‘This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: In the last days, God says, “I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy”.’ Acts 2:16-18.

Some are calling themselves prophets and claiming, for example, that their quotes (i.e. lines written in the first person) are words spoken to them by God, when they do not have a mantle of prophetic authority. The challenge is how to discern and authenticate the genuine and identify and dismiss the false. We should also seek to help those with good intentions who go beyond their authority, and those who are learning.

Testing

The gist of the Lord’s message to me was that testing is more important than it has ever been before.

Test everything, “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,” 1 John 4:1-2.

I give some tips on testing (not exhaustive!):
  • does the prophecy magnify Jesus?
  • is it in line with Scripture?
  • is the life of the one bringing the prophecy in line with biblical principles?
  • is there a track record of accurate foretelling?
  • is the prophecy constructive, encouraging, comforting?
  • and does it have a discernible purpose?

These are just some guidelines, and which suggested test points should apply will vary with the nature of the prophecy.

Conclusion

These points have been covered before on “Richards Watch” and elsewhere. However, I felt the Lord wants to re-emphasise the need for increased vigilance in this time of increasing turbulence and deception on all fronts.

Giants attacking America; God’s patriots shall bring them down – The Marshall Report

In the light of Veronika West’s prophetic visions/words about giants falling this makes interesting reading, along with its reference to Britain’s role!

The facts are now in our face that it wasn’t just a crooked patent office, a crooked FBI, a crooked CIA, Crooked military in the Pentagon, crooked globalists who wanted sustainable development agenda 21, crooked politicians, crooked NSA, crooked Monsanto, crooked big Pharma, crooked GMO’s, crooked banksters, crooked educational systems,  crooked United Nations agenda 21, […]

VITAL info for ALL CHRISTIANS on BOTH sides of the ‘Pond’ about lies believers and pastors are hearing AND telling about US election! — Mario Murillo (GPS #55.1)

As with politics, we Christians here in Britain tend to disdain American-style church and doctrines – we stay well away and are thus poorly informed. We need facts and removal of inaccuracies in everything. Therefore, I urge readers to consider very carefully Mario’s corrections of widespread falsehoods… (See comparison of policies vs. Bible)

It is truly stunning and disappointing how fast the American Church is rolling over and playing dead. It is impossible to imagine a worse time for them to both believe lies and tell lies. So, I beseech you—if at all possible—to take this somewhere quiet and read it all the way through without stopping. Here […]

Shake Off The Dust From Your Feet! – Chris Bennett

The following jotted by Chris Bennett this afternoon reminds me this scripture was one of the few that hit me between the eyes when starting to attend church 30 yrs ago. Having heard similar but from the ‘other camp’, I immediately recognised its validity – and stayed for more, lots and lots and lots more!! (Emphases below are mine)

DUSTY FEET

I was disturbed earlier today when I had a vivid mini-vision of someone talking to a group of people. They were very important, government people, and their leader sat behind a beautiful wooden desk. Many were smiling or smirking, indulgently it seemed, as the speaker addressed them.

There was some head shaking, some words exchanged, and the speaker turned to leave. Then, quite suddenly, and to the shock of many present, he stopped. He removed his shoes saying, “Excuse me, but the Lord would have me do this before I leave!” Then he shook the dirt and dust from his shoes and walked out bare-footed before putting them on again. The effect was significant in that one or two scoffed, but most were shocked and alarmed as they understood the import of what they had just seen. The vision faded.

The Lord took me to these verses – “And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.”
Matthew 10:14, Mark 6:11, & Luke 9:5

I asked the Lord what this was all about? It seems to me to be a warning to our leaders and our people, government, church, and business in both UK & America, that the Lord is about to wash his hands of us if we don’t start to listen to Him. I didn’t see any consequences of their refusal to listen, but I, and they, certainly understood the seriousness of the situation.

It is said, in 1 Peter 4:17, that judgement begins with the church, but I got the impression that before or when that happens, the Lord will remove power from those who currently hold it, and give the power back to the people. Not in a militant sense but more in a righteous sense. He is taking the candlestick, (Revelation 2:5), and moving it to where it will be stewarded reverently and responsibly by righteous men and women of God. I got the impression of righteousness returning to every level of government from kindergarten to national levels and all in between.

If and when the Lord kicks the dust from His feet, the shaking will be felt in every corner of the realm. If we don’t starting to listen to Him, either directly or through His prophets, then the consequences will be serious indeed!

Admonition to America’s Church: Fear Me first and the curse shall be lifted — Wanda Alger

Readers of President Trump giving glory to Jesus may have sensed the Lord’s urging “Take notice!” by the double reference in that post and the associated word Veronika brought to ‘the fear of the Lord’.  This is reiterated in what Wanda now brings:

A word from the Lord to the Church of America: To the Church of America, I would say, do you know the choice before you? Do you know the significance of that which you align with? For I tell you that you are choosing between a curse and a blessing, a promise of hope or…

President Trump gives glory to Jesus Christ in public!

The video gives Donald Trump’s opening shot to an exceptional speech and declaration from any world leader as he points heavenward saying,

“But you know…we still need help from the Boss! We need help from the Boss – that’s what I think – we need help (…applause…) Yeah, we need help….Now they’ll criticise me for saying that: ‘How dare he say that! How dare he say that!’ Nah, I’ll say it…I’ll say it!

“Somebody said to me the other day, ‘You’re the most famous person in the world by far’. I said ‘No I’m not, no I’m not!’ they said, ‘Yes you are’; I said ‘No!’; they said, ‘Who’s more famous?’ I said, ‘Jesus Christ!’ (…applause…) I’m not taking any chances…Hey, I’m NOT having any argument – Jesus Christ…I guarantee…”

This marvellous declaration brings Jesus’ own words to mind, and upon checking them the Lord drew my attention to the import of their context within Matthew 10:

Jesus Teaches the Fear of God

27 “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in [h]hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a [i]copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Confess Christ Before Men

32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”

Christ Brings Division

34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set…” [A personally poignant paragraph follows that the Lord gave me in answer to what was happening in mid-90’s.]

Version in Luke 12 makes this acknowledgement even wider:
8 “Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God. 9 But he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God. 10 “And anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven.”

PS. 28 Oct: This post is an astonishing ‘God-incidental’ demonstration of Deuteronomy 19:15 (a matter is established by two or three witnesses) because of its almost simultaneous publication in the afternoon of Monday 20th October with one from Veronika West. That morning I’d checked the specific scripture covering this video. It was strongly impressed upon me to quote it in context AND to use both Gospel variants: ie. add what Jesus says about ‘fear of God’ as well as ‘before the angels’ in honouring those who confess Him. Hence, my astonishment to discover (after posting this) Veronika had just posted Angel Armies on Assignment in America – AND it closes with ‘…the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord…’ !!!
