Vision of Rock of Christ emerging from rotten fabric of UK society – 2004

It’s good to get ‘space’ for mental and spiritual chilling in a rare ‘quiet’ period preparing for a long-needed break BUT I see not a few items brewing up!  They connect into the satanic strategy behind what I was blogging upon last week, the others show the Lord’s strategy of reviving old prophetic visions and words, indicated through His ‘GPS’  (global prophecy signals). Giving proper precedence to the latter, here’s the first item, as told in this extract from my email of 18 August 2011 to church friends and a few leaders:

COMMENTS UPON THE COLLAPSE OF SOCIETY

(A Word received by Revd Dr Sharon Stone)

Dear Friends,

Further to circulating a word received through Lance Lambert on the eve of the London Riots (see email 9 August) and Dr Sharon’s insights 12 August (original email and link n/a but amended Oct 2016), I was reminded Billy Graham’s grandson is coming to stir the youth of Britain in late September.

(HA! Only after having inserted that line to precede my comments written below, have I  just noticed its title, Will Graham Set to Rock the UK, alludes exactly to the climax of the event I’m writing about….)

Personally, I’m encouraged that this word (through Revd Dr Stone) confirms the gist of an open vision that came at the opening of worship at the start of a conference in St Albans in October 2004.

Before me I ‘saw’ a map of Britain surrounded by the sea, as though painted on rotten sacking – like old, wet coal-sacks I’d seen in my youth. It seemed the Lord was saying the fabric of our nation’s so rotten He could tear it apart easily. 

This ‘map’ then began to rip apart in the middle, from about the line of Hadian’s Wall down along the line of the Pennine chain to the Midlands, and I sensed the Lord say, “I’m going to put the backbone back in Britain”. (I recalled that the Pennines are known as the spine of England.)

But out of the tear arose a very long rock, which I understood as meaning the Lord would restore our strong, spiritual backbone when we stand upon Him, The Rock.

[Previously I’d noted, ‘Could the Lord be allowing increased persecutions here for the purpose of putting the spine back into Christians and making us stand up strongly?’… And Parliament has since been, and continues to be, thoroughly shaken and ripped open – do it to the media and elsewhere, Lord…Did you know that mounted, body-armoured police in Manchester interrogated a street preacher just because he was inviting people to an Easter service? Next, a hate-crimes unit visited him at home!!!]

It wasn’t so much the unexpected and unbidden nature of the event that startled me. It was because I thought I heard the Lord say that He would rip the nation apart as easily as an old sack because of its rotten nature!!  That troubled me for I considered such to be contrary to his loving nature. 

But NT scriptures do speak of judgement and He gives many repeated warnings of such impending action (eg. as given this month through Lance Lambert).  Yet, we must plead His remembrance of mercy and of Jesus’ sacrifice, through which comes the fullness of true blessing.  All rather a profound mystery.  Also, let’s not forget that the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11.2) were aspects of the Holy Spirit prophesied for the descendant of King David’s father Jesse: Jesus Christ. 

NB > the vision was soon offered to several church leaders for weighing, yet it evoked no response. However, upon our attending a prophecy school the next year (2005) at Bath, I submitted it to Dr Stone who immediately agreed its validity and called her ‘master-class’ to intercession!

2020 > LOL! LOL! LOL! Checking the links in this 9 years-old email still function I found Dr Sharon’s goes to The Elijah List AND shows in its Facebook ‘Like’ the name ‘Mabel Boyd’, who inspired me to republish this mini-series!!!  Wish I’d taken a ‘screen-shot’ as the name’s since changed upon my revisiting.

2004 Open Vision of Rock of Christ tearing through rotten fabric of British society

Previously posted under title Comments Upon The Collapse of Society, this is to draw your attention to an open vision and word from the Lord that shocked me profoundly, and which appears in blue text below. That the vision is proving true is evident from all the upheavals and descent into degradation of recent years, but we are beginning to see changes pointing to a re-emergence of desperately needed Christian values.

NOW, satan’s strategy of lying through its unwitting stooges is exposed but it is time for ALL Christians to stand upon the Rock that is Christ and, for the good our of nations, to speak out against its hatred and lies, as will be provided in the next post!!

Prophetic word: Time to wake up and don our armour!

WORD FROM THE LORD TO THE CHURCH

‘Some weeks ago in church, I had a picture of a battle-ready army stood waiting in silence. It made me think of the silence of heaven in Revelation 8:1. The sky was red and a glorified Jesus was facing them.

‘This morning I woke to a picture of a red sky morning with the words ‘Thou shalt not delay’. I realised that the picture related to the old adage ‘red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning’. As I prayed about this, I received these words:

“I am coming soon; be ready. Put on your armour; gird your loins; take up your sword. Stand firm in the battle and you will reap your reward. The harvest is ripe and it is mine. I am giving it to you to bring into the storehouse. Take care, for I am here and I am roaring at the enemy.”

‘Interestingly, I had knocked my phone onto the floor in the night, dislodging the sim so it was showing the wrong time; consequently I got up later than usual. I believe that the natural reflects the spiritual – so be aware; stay connected, for it is later than we think!’

Gill Parkes, 11th December 2017

Thank you very much Gill. It reminds me of Nina’s vision of believers dressed in armour at Revival Alliance gathering last August (read Vision of Christian warriors, angel’s messages and a ‘wake up’ call).

‘Weep for the BBC’ (intercession) starts tonight

Robin Jegede-Brimson, co-pastor of Servant Ministries in Whitstable, Kent, and one of the leaders of the Inter-Prophetic Alliance (IPA) issues this invitation to intercessors:

A CALL TO WEEP (INTERCEDE) FOR THE BBC

The BBC is in GOD’s spotlight!

We are called to make disciples of all nations, as in making converts and discipling people from all ethnic groups (Gk:Ethnae) “nations” but in another sense we are also called to introduce kingdom values to the systems and institutions of nations. This gives rise to the distinction in Matt 25:32 between sheep and goat nations. We see patterns of this in the life of Joseph who through his wisdom was able to save and preserve life in Egypt as well as Daniel who was promoted on the back of his very public unflinching in the face of persecution. He stood up for his faith, despite all…

In 1992 the BBC was dedicated to GOD and the plaque in the lobby of the BBC boldly declares,

“To GOD Almighty, .. praying that a good sowing may produce a good harvest so that everything unclean, impure and hostile to peace may be driven out, that whatever is beautiful, sincere, genuine and of good reputation may stand  . .”

However, this millennium has seen the BBC shift from being an impartial broadcaster to one which actively seeks to push ideologies averse to civilization and family, the building blocks of society and godliness. When those at the helm are challenged through petitions or the newscasters or offered an opinion other than that of the liberals, all objections are treated with impunity and hostility. “Bigot!”, “Homophobic!” and the like are what come. The BBC has become an organisation used by the enemy to promote gender extremism and hostility against any who hold to family values. A national institution in favour of all things Islam at the expense of Christianity. Even GOD-fearing politicians are not spared this barrage when they stand up for truth, decency and common sense morality.

Here are a few examples :

So, what can we do? Are we helpless at this tide of evil? By no means!! We are not without weapons, we are not without power, we are not helpless, WE CAN PRAY, and PRAY we shall! It is time to FIGHT BACK!

The BBC and this slide to moral anarchy was highlighted to the Inter-Prophetic Alliance and friends (a group of leaders burdened for the nation) and we set time aside to ask The LORD for His heart for the BBC. We asked for His revelation on what was behind this and what prayer strategy He may have for us. Here are some of our findings and conclusions:-

A. GOD loves all the people in the BBC and desires that they all come to the saving knowledge of JESUS. Tears flowed freely from our faces as we once again encountered The SAVIOUR’s love for all of humanity including the broadcasters who have sought to vilify believers. We wept as we prayed mercy and forgiveness on all the broadcasters who have been caught in the enemy’s trap and castigated believers.

B.  There is a heavy influence on all (but for the grace of GOD and those covered by His Blood) who work in the BBC by the spirit of the power of the air who has been invited by evil workers to rule there. This controlling diabolical spirit is the enemy.

C.  One of the past DG’s of the BBC was closely associated with the occult and as a result of this pacts were made with the enemy. Presently there are several serving at the BBC who have entered into similar demonic pacts.

PRAYER STRATEGY 

As we sought The LORD on what to do, this is what came to us –

1.  Pray, weep and intercede for all who are in the BBC. Pray for GOD’s hand of mercy to be revealed to all and for all who serve the nation there to come to repentance. We must uphold the spiritual truth that GOD always gives time to repent and turn before executing judgement (e.g Thyatira in Rev 2)
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” 2Peter 3:9

2.  Pray for GOD’s warning that they are in the spotlight to come to ears of those in authority in the BBC, that both Christian and pre-Christian alike find a place of repentance. (note that GOD expects godliness from all (e.g. Herod in Acts 12)
When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” 10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened”(Jonah) 

3. Strengthen the hands of those who are called to be watchmen and intercessors to the BBC and see a company of priestly intercessors who will man the gates for this portal to the nation.

To this end we have a series of prayer events for the BBC coming up –

1. “WEEP (intercede) for the BBC” – a time of weeping and intercessions for all in the BBC
TONIGHT > 6pm Thursday 26th October
Venue: Barclay Hall Christian Fellowship, 25 Barclay Rd, Fulham, London SW6 1EJ

2. “Decree over the BBC” – releasing GOD’s original purpose intent for the BBC
6pm Wednesday 1st November
Venue: Church Of Destiny 454A High Road Tottenham N17 9JD
(At the opening session of APO500* – conference marking the 500th anniversary of the reformation )

3. “Raise an umbrella over the BBC” – strengthening a company to watch and pray
November date to be announced

Hope to see you there, please pass on to your intercessory pals.

Robin Jegede-Brimson, 17th October 2017

RB NOTE: readers familiar with my highly critical blogs on the Badly Biased Corporation (eg. 5 years ago) will recall its anti-Israel stance is not only pro-Palestinian in failing in its statutory duty to report current as well as historical events accurately but also its lack of  impartially arising from its distinctly prejudiced policy. This is amply demonstrated  by BBC Watch’s in-depth investigations overflowing with the corporation’s campaign of irredeemable misinformation, falsehoods and inaccuracies.

Thus, the self-righteous BBC deliberately misleads viewers about the state of Israel.

On a September shift for leaders of UK, USA & Israel; harvest and equipping for the battle

In Visions of Christian Warriors…, which included words from the Lord on His heavenly army as brought by Chris Bennett, I mused about whenever we’re away it’s intriguing to return home and compare impressions with others who’ve heard from the Lord. So we continue in that vein with another word Chris received at that time (published by UK Prophetic Words – emphases mine):

GOD’S HAND IS UPON THERESA MAY, DONALD TRUMP and BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, PLUS WORD TO THE CHURCH

There has been a shift in the atmosphere in the last couple of days. It seems to me that the intercession, the presence of the Lord, the worship, even signs and wonders following have increased to the point of seeming much more aggressive. The war in the heavenlies has increased as the Army of Heaven prepares the way for Holy Spirit to move. That’s what I’m getting from the Lord.

“As August becomes September, expect Me to move upon you in power. Expect to see your leaders, President Trump, Prime Minister May, and Prime Minister Netanyahu, move decisively to forestall moves by their enemies from bearing fruit. My hand is upon them”, says the Lord of Hosts, “and they shall not be overthrown by those seeking to overthrow the balance of world power.”

The Lord continued, “My church needs to be ready for the cry, ‘ALL HANDS ON DECK!’ and she needs to have intercessors praying and watchmen stationed on the walls. From your point of view, things are about to get ‘ugly’, but from My perspective, everything is on plan, on target, and ready to advance My Kingdom.

“My Spirit is ready to show you His power. He is ready to flood your nations with My presence; to begin the harvest. It has started in many places, but I am ready to change the face of My church for ever!” says the Lord. “Be prepared for changes – big far reaching changes. I am equipping the Church for war – all out war upon Christians by My enemies. Changes will be inevitable, unavoidable, and, to some, unpalatable. As I said to Joshua, so I say to this army, ‘Do not fear, be strong and very courageous, for every place you put your foot, that place I will give you!’”

He finished with this,

“This is your battle cry, Sound the trumpets! Every man to his station. The enemies of the Lord are about to attack but the battle is the Lords! It was won at Calvary.”

Hallelujah Church. Battle is joined! The Holy One of Israel is on the move!!!

Vision of Christian warriors, more on the angel’s message and a ‘wake up’ call

Final day at 9.00am and keen to be with new friends in His presence

After having been away it’s intriguing to compare our spiritual impressions with others who’ve heard from the Lord. After the first evening at Revival Alliance UK 2017 at least thrice-daily ardent worship started cleansing the New Bingley Hall in Birmingham.

Upon entering the auditorium it felt exactly like on my recent visits to Capstone Church, Ilford (extra meetings continue this month). And the sense there was just like when we travelled to Folleys’ End Church in Croydon’s Surrey Street market some years ago. On the opening evening of a weekend-long gathering there a ‘rock’n’roll’ guitarist opened up worship with extraordinary musicianship – after that song he addressed an unvoiced question I’d had!  As worship proceeded, Holy Spirit’s presence could be sensed and so it was just like when we’d been in the sanctuary at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship.

We were where Jesus Christ attends church!

SO, this time with Revival Alliance we were back in Toronto and the outpouring of God’s blessings once again. Many received a good measure of healings, including ‘D’, who’d sat beside us that first evening. Later, she responded to a word of knowledge Carol Arnott had from the Lord about someone having too many platelets in their blood. On going forward, ‘D’ said the problem’s caused her a great deal of pain but God has given her a promise in her own year of jubilee – and she’s 50 years of age. She soon began feeling the warmth of God’s power to bring freedom from pain.

NINA’S VISION OF WARRIORS

The next day we were unable to find ‘D’ until we saw her coming towards the building as we left for the lunch break. She told us how well she’s now feeling. We grinned and then I noticed Nina had gone silent, beyond conversational listening, and gazing very intently – but not at our friend, at everyone!  Is she alright?

“Everyone’s changed,” she says a minute or so later. “We’re wearing armour and ready for combat!”

I ask her what’s happening and she explains her sight did a sort of shimmer, or rather our bodies did. So I ask, “Like watching people going through the Stargate (movie)?”

“Yes”, replies Nina, and so we realise her natural and spiritual senses of sight became active to show another – truer – reality of believers in Christ as spiritual warriors. It looks as if it would be heavy and cumbersome armour but it’s light and supple, being spiritual.

The images are akin to when Nina attended the funeral of an atheist friend’s husband only to be shocked to ‘see’ people walking around as skeletons!  They’re the walking dead because unbelievers are dead to God. But believers are not only clothed in Christ but also in holy armour for fighting satan’s servants.

With that vision in mind let’s read Chris Bennett’s Facebook entries about the army of the Lord after having the vision of an angel warning him the Lord’s drawn a Line In The Sand (3rd Sept), which I didn’t read until yesterday (emphases mine):

THERE IS ANOTHER LINE IN THE SAND (4th Sept)

Yesterday, I wrote about a line in the sand as the Lord applies it to us, but He also gave me an interpretation of it as applied to the forces of evil. I wrote that interpretation to a dear friend and the effect was such that I am prompted to share it wider.

I wrote : “I felt the Lord say over you, “So far but no further. I will only allow so much to attack you, then – no more! I am limiting the enemy’s ability to harass you. I am setting my army around you. You are mine and I will protect and preserve you. I have plans for you that are as yet unfulfilled. So I rebuke the enemy. Thus far – not one step further!”

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

I feel a move in the Spirit. I feel the enemy is being dragged back from the worst excesses he was planning. The Lord is rebuilding His church just as Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. He is restoring hope where the world has been openly mocking us. He is restoring faith where faith has been shredded and all but destroyed. He is sounding a rallying cry to every Christian who will respond.

“TO ARMS! EVERYONE TO HIS OR HER POST. LET THE TRUMPETS HERALD A GATHERING OF THE SAINTS IN A WAR-ROOM TO PROCLAIM AND DECREE THE GREATNESS OF THE LORD AND TO DECLARE FRESH HOPE FOR ALL MANKIND! IT IS TIME TO CALL A COUNCIL OF WAR IN EVERY CHURCH, EVERY TOWN AND VILLAGE. IT IS TIME FOR THE WATCHMEN TO WATCH AND STAND GUARD, FOR THE INTERCESSORS TO INTERCEDE DECLARE AND DECREE THE LORD’S WILL BE DONE, AND THE PROPHETS TO LEAD AS THEY HEAR AND SPEAK AND ACTIVATE THE WORDS OF THE LORD!”

“DO NOT SAY ITS NOT MY JOB! IT IS EVERYONE’S JOB. LET THE WORSHIPPERS LEAD YOU INTO BATTLE FOR THE BATTLE IS THE LORD’S AND THE ENEMY’S WALLS WILL COME TUMBLING DOWN!”

I looked to the hills around us. The horsemen and chariots of Israel are in position. The Army of the Lord is ready. The trumpeters are standing, trumpets raised, ready for the command. The Lord stands to His feet and His voice rings out over us, “NOW IS THE TIME. LET BATTLE COMMENCE!” The enemy forces rise in unison with the Soldiers of the Cross. I see the Ark of the Covenant, carried by the priests, take up position ready to lead the worshippers into battle. Then . . . the battle cry is sounded.

Are you ready? Is the Army of the Lord, on earth as it is in heaven, ready? Then let us wage war on Satan and all his demon army. We cannot be defeated, the battle is already won! AMEN.

WAKE UP! (2nd Sept)

“Before you set about trying to get the Church right with Me – get yourself right with Me.” says the Lord. These words hit me like a brick as I was browsing Facebook today.

“Mote and plank! Cast the plank out of your own eye before you try to point out the mote in another’s eye!”, He continued. “My Word speaks about a spotless Bride, and so she shall be, but to be part of a spotless Bride, you must be personally ‘spotless’ or how can I use you to clean up the Bride?

“This is one of the last calls to personal holiness!”, says the Lord, “For in the coming months I will be ‘cleaning house’ in My Church. I will be ‘cleaning house’ among those I have appointed and anointed and many will lose their influence and some their platform because they have abused the anointing and have turned aside from the path upon which I set them!

“Why ‘one of the last calls’? Because I am raising a new Holy Army among My people, and these shall be anointed to carry the Church through the End-time. If My people will align themselves with Me and with the path upon which I have set them, then I shall add to their anointing, confirmed with signs and wonders following, and the world will recognise them as Mine.

“However”, says the Lord, “There will be two countermeasures the enemy, Satan, has set up ready to combat My people. First, he will counterfeit everything My people do, and you must discern the difference. Second, he will attack, harass, persecute, and try to bring down My anointed in any way he can, and you must stand in the face of this. Only by keeping themselves pure and unto Me shall My people stand and remain standing” says the Lord of Hosts.

A ‘wake up’ warning to a still complacent church.

A letter submitted to the Times for publication. 

Most noteworthy in view of what prophetical voices are bringing about the shaking of church and of society. See also Cranmer’s transcript and forthright commentary upon Piers Morgan’s self-righteous inquisition of our brother in Christ, If a bigot cannot become PM, why should one be allowed to become an MP?

Believers take a stand. Call for CofE reforms explodes

A fascinating fact in this latest of Gavin Ashenden’s ‘over the Pond’ chats is that the Church Times wouldn’t refer to him for years because of his orthodox stance. BUT in view of over a thousand more signatures from clergy and laity appended to the letter to the Telegraph, it recognizes a movement is starting and quickly published two reports:

Rebels? In church? Just who’s rebelling??

My friend and author of The Pursuit of Pleasure and Feasting on the Father, Revd William Smith, emailed me today in response to my last post’s reference to Gavin Ashenden leading a group of ‘rebel Anglicans’. I have Bill’s kind permission to publish his reaction:

Dear Richard,

REBELS?

Grace, mercy and peace to you both in our Beloved Saviour and King.

Following on from yesterdays “Watch” with the Gavin Ashenden article, I believe we have the wrong emphasis on this. (ie. in Christian Today article).

Gavin, GAFCON, and the open letter to York, are in no way rebellious. These precious faithful ones are simply that, faithful ones.

The rebels are all those who have abandoned biblical teaching in favour of contemporary ideas and unrighteous ways. It is Lambeth Palace, the Synod (in general), the supporters of “Pride” etc, who have left the truth and are in rebellion against God and His revealed ways for human behaviour.

I have said this elsewhere and feel very strongly that we should be declaring this unashamedly and unapologetically.

The rebels are those who have turned from God, not those who are walking faithfully with Him.

There is a pressing need for Anglicanism, and much of the rest of ‘the church’ to be made aware of this. To recognise the truth of what I have here written and for there to be a turning in support of these faithful ones in rejection of the others. It is being portrayed wrongly making the “rebels” (the faithful) to be those destroying the so called unity of the church, while all the time they are upholding its faithful following of The Lord Jesus. (Rant over)

I do believe we urgently need to redress the prevailing attitude and see Truth restored, the bible honoured, celebrated and followed, rather than being shamed as divisive.

For your thoughts.

Much blessing and encouragement as this battle intensifies as biblical truth is so under threat from within.

In Victorious King Jesus, I bless you both.

Bill, 31st July 2017

POSTSCRIPT

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

Welcome News: three Christian street preachers acquitted

Christian Concern brings news of a third street preacher’s acquittal of all charges by the police against him under public order offences!

A week ago two others were acquitted of their previous conviction after an appeal (see my blog of Judge decides which parts of the Bible can and cannot be preached!), as announced in:

The Arrest, Abuse and Acquittal of Three Street Preachers

‘Christian evangelists Mike Overd, Adrian Clark and Michael Stockwell, were arrested last year for sharing the gospel in Bristol. The court dismissed the case against Adrian Clark, ruling that there was no case to answer.

‘In February this year, Mike Overd and Michael Stockwell were convicted of religiously aggravated public order convictions. They were found guilty under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 at Bristol Magistrates’ Court.

‘Thursday 29th June 2017, Bristol Crown Court acquitted Mike and Michael of their convictions at an appeal hearing.’

Once, British police were well-respected for their impartiality but now enforce irrational, fascist policies, as may be gathered from CC’s above video!

In CC’s press release for the latest, Andrew Frost explains his motivation for preaching on the streets:

“I do what I do because I’m moved by the love of God to go out into the streets and preach to people. I wanted these men to know the truth, that Jesus can set them free. Because in the sight of God, these things are wrong.”

He adds that he’s previously been approached by people in same-sex relationships and every time reassures them that he has nothing against them.

“I am thankful that the judge saw sense and acquitted me of this charge…Christians need to be free to share the good news of the gospel to anyone who will listen – as we are commanded in Scripture to do.”

Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre supporting Mr Frost, comments: “We are delighted with this result. The freedoms that we enjoy today in this nation are largely due to our biblical foundation, yet the freedom to preach from this very Bible is under increasing threat. At the Christian Legal Centre we are seeing an increasing number of street preachers arrested for preaching the gospel.

“This encouraging result should offer some reassurance to Christians who may feel fearful of the consequences of sharing their beliefs with others.”

Are traditional, Bible-believing Christians the new heretics??

Based upon the widespread bigotry expressed over PM May’s post-election decision on forming a working majority, Voice for Justice UK follows up on the request to petition the government about free speech for Christians in Parliament with this further appeal:

THERE IS A NEW HERESY

‘To ensure a functioning Parliamentary majority Theresa May concludes a deal with the DUP; in the interests of transparency publishes the agreement in full; and is immediately accused of giving them a ‘bung’.  Criticisms abound, especially from the Welsh and Scottish Assemblies, who would also like more money – no surprise there then.  But surely the most pernicious and worrying criticisms come from those who attack the DUP for their unashamedly Christian stance on moral issues that the UK has now ideologically redefined, and imposed by law.

‘Ex-Tory chairman Chris Patten has reportedly predicted that the ‘toxic brand’ of the DUP will taint Theresa May and harm the Conservative party, specifically identifying the DUP’s hard-line stance on issues such as gay equality (see for example, Evening Standard).

‘How is it people today can so easily be branded toxic, intolerant, and bigoted simply because they adhere to the traditional teachings of Christianity, and refuse to endorse abortion, or same sex marriage?   As far as can be ascertained, the DUP have never at any time expressed ‘hatred’ for those who support such choices: they have simply said they disagree, citing as cause the moral incompatibility of such practices with Christian faith.

‘As it is, the universal condemnation and vilification of this identifiably ‘Christian’ party by gay marriage supporters, so strongly articulated by the likes of Chris Patten and Ruth Davidson – who demanded and was given assurance that there would be no rescission of LGBTI rights – speaks volumes.

Who are the real bigots here?  Who the real peddlers of hatred and intolerance? 

‘Sadly, what we are seeing is nothing less than the systemic demonization of Christians by those who want justification and social endorsement of the new morality, and who want to drive all expression of Christianity from the public arena.

‘As stressed previously: Christian faith is being increasingly suppressed by the relentless drive of Secular and LGBT activists. It is time for the intolerance, bigotry and intimidation of these so-called liberals to be exposed.’

Further to my call three weeks ago today in Time to take a stand against the fascism of ‘Christophobia’ and Revd Gavin Ashenden’s First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you, it’s time to protect Christian MPs’ and our rights to free speech.

Gavin exposed the inclusion of the Qur’an in the Eucharist at Glasgow Cathedral, and we are seeing Christians increasingly ridiculed and vilified in the public arena before the relentless drive of Secular and LGBTQ activism.

Therefore and for the good of the nation, the time has come to stand against activists’ schemes to suppress Christian belief across the public sphere AND in our personal lives, as is well-known and documented.

Please read Voice for Justice UK’s following email and seriously consider petitioning to ‘Protect Christian MPs Right to Free Speech. Don’t Allow Secular and LGBT Activists to Suppress Christian belief‘.:

‘Christian faith is being increasingly suppressed by the relentless drive of Secular and LGBTQ activists.

‘It is time for the intolerance, bigotry and intimidation of so-called liberals to be exposed.

‘Following delivery of our petition calling for the reinstatement of former Tory MP for the Isle of Wight Andrew Turner – forced to resign for saying he believed homosexuality was wrong and a danger to society – we are now launching a fresh campaign calling for the government to  protect the right to free speech of all current and future Christian MPs.

‘Standing on Articles 9 and 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998 – respectively protecting the rights to freedom of thought, belief, and religion; and the freedom to hold and express your own opinions – we assert the right to follow and practise without impediment or restraint our Christian faith, and to express without fear of condemnation or intimidation the core beliefs on which our faith is founded and as set down in the Bible.

We call for freedom of belief and of speech for all.

‘And we call for all political parties to uphold the right of both current and future MPs to express support for traditional Christian belief, without fear of intimidation by activist groups seeking to silence dissent by unjustified accusations of bigotry and hatred.’
