Cleansing and preparing for the Lord’s glory to visit Britain

Two very pertinent prophetical ponderings, courtesy of UK Prophetic Words posted 24th and 25th June respectively (editorial emphases mine):

I AM ABOUT TO MOVE IN GREAT BRITAIN AS NEVER BEFORE – CLEANSING & PREPARING FOR REVIVAL 

Credit Glocar Matt, BBC Weather Watcher

There’s been a lot of comment about the cloud photo which appeared over Britain this week (as above). Allow me to give you my take on this:

At first I was quite amused by all the hype and, frankly, what I thought was foolish talk – until Holy Spirit nudged me. “And why can it not be from Me?”  He asked. “Do you not recall Elijah’s Cloud?” For a moment I thought He was pulling my leg but He added, “Not joking!”

So let me get this straight, a cloud that started on the horizon ‘as big as a man’s hand’ had now grown and taken on the shape of mainland Britain?

“Oh yes”, He said, “And it’s headed your way for a very good reason”. OK Lord, you’ve got my attention. This chat had suddenly gotten serious.

“Tell My people, I am sending the latter rain early because you are getting parched from hearing all the false and seriously gloomy news. There is a great need for a washing in My Spirit. That’s right, I am sending a WASHING IN MY SPIRIT in order to cleanse off the world’s dirt which is sticking to you!”

“The Cloud was sent as a warning to Great Britain that I am about to move as never before – cleansing and preparing for revival” said the Lord. “The cleansing will bring great realisation of the poor spiritual state of the nation. There will be much tearful repentance and restoration of almost forgotten callings and ministries. There will be a huge move among the young, and not so young, and an equipping for revival as never seen or recorded before.”

“Doesn’t My Word say that signs in the heavens will appear before you? Haven’t My servants the prophets warned you of this? The time has come for a national awakening such as never seen before nor even imagined. I have spoken. Is not My Word good? Has My Word ever fallen to the ground? Have you not prayed for this day and have I not now answered?”

“I am the Lord. Listen when I speak, and watch for My signs and wonders. I AM SENDING ALL THAT YOU HAVE ASKED FOR AND MORE – MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER THINK OR IMAGINE!”

Chris Bennett, 18th June’17

PREPARE YOUR HEARTS FOR A VISITATION OF MY GLORY

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord” – We all are familiar with the wonderful old hymn by Julia Ward Howe that starts with this line.

I was reminded of this when I sat, as I often do, just listening to whatever the Lord wanted to say to me. He brought these words to mind. Before I could ask the question, the Lord answered,

“I am about to bring my Shekinah glory into your meetings. I will bring the cloud of my presence before you. The few times I have done this before, my people have fallen on their faces before me. This time, I will cause one or two to stand up again. They will shine before you as Moses did when he came down from Mount Sinai where he was in my presence. These shall be my mantle carriers, whether healing, prophecy, teaching, hospitality, prayer, or whatever. My mantle shall be upon them and none shall claim otherwise.”

I was reminded of a vision I had about four or five years ago in which the Glory Cloud came into the church we were in at the time. I’ve since had the same vision set in our present church. There is no precedent for this, nor any preference other than for praying worshiping congregations. I don’t even think it has anything to do with where we are, or which church we are in. This COMING GLORY has everything to do with the hearts of those believers who cry out for such a visitation.

“PREPARE YOUR HEARTS FOR A VISITATION OF MY GLORY!” says the Lord. “I AM COMING SOON, IN FACT, I AM ON MY WAY NOW!”

Footnotes:
  • “Marantha”…yes, “Come Lord Jesus” – amen!
  • the darkness of the Britain-shaped cloud contrasts symbolically with the glorious and powerful sunlight behind it, as though ‘below’ our nations (see Comment below).
  • this cloud is not unlike that seen over Windsor on Garter Day 2011, but with split between Scotland and England (Stunning General Election Results 2015… refers).
  • I’m reminded of what violinist Dr Maurice Sklar heard in Jerusalem in 2015, “Tell them all, the Day of the Lord is upon you now”.

Holy Spirit stirrings #3 – Liverpool ‘Turning’

This comes from Michael Marcel on 11 September at UK Awakening:

‘You would have read on this site a few months ago of what has been going on in Reading, Berkshire through the ministry of Yinka Oyekan. Over the last two weeks, Yinka has been in Liverpool with a team to train the churches to go out on the streets as they did in Reading.

‘Here is a short report from Sue Sinclair who was one of the organisers.

‘There is no way of even describing the seismic shift that has started in our city…it could only be God! 70+ churches represented, so many Christians working in unity empowered to share the Gospel, thousands of people encountering Jesus love on the streets, over 22 hours 654+ people praying a prayer of salvation, people already being followed up and coming into the Church = God is doing something incredible.’

‘This is another indication that God is on the move and people are open to hearing the Gospel message. The next city to receive Yinka and his team is Southampton and then Leicester.

Update 12 September:

‘More from Sue Sinclair.

‘After Saturday morning the numbers are continuing to rise and as far as I know it’s now 681 plus others that we have not been told about. Mother and adult daughter actually just walked into Love Assembly Sunday and gave their lives to Jesus. Taxi driver also gave his life to Jesus yesterday. It was brilliant to see Charlie in Church yesterday (who is having a very dramatic experience coming from a challenging lifestyle). Also John who is homeless (was at death’s door when we met him and didn’t want to be helped off the streets) and he looked so much better.’

‘338 people were trained to evangelise on the streets.’

Veronika West on Sons and Daughters and the opening of ancient gates

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this received over the weekend and which was first published on Tuesday 9th August and may be read via this title:

YOU WILL BE A WONDROUS SIGN

This morning Papa whispered to me “Daughter, Signs of Wonder will begin to Arise”, immediately I saw the Sons and Daughters of God walking as living sign posts of His Glory and Wonder upon the Earth. They were hosts of His Power and Presence, they were carriers of Radical Hope and Restoration in the land, they were the “sent out ones”, trained and proved by Fire, unmovable in their Faith, fuelled and driven by Holy passion, their hearts were set ablaze with the Fires of Revival and Reformation. From their bellies flowed mighty rivers of living waters, and from their mouths went forth the two edged sword that was sharp, quick and penetrating. These were Holy light bearers, the powers of darkness fled at the very sight of them. Continue reading

‘God-incidental’ teaching on Holy Spirit’s anointing

Detail of cover to Ladies of Gold by James Maloney

ONE Saturday in mid-May the Lord inspired and enabled two people known to one another to teach, unbeknown to the other, upon His Glory and in such a way that encourages us to focus upon it personally and daily. This has since become very appropriate in view of the prophesied changes that are about to happen here. Continue reading

New Britain: a real reformation and greater glory coming

Published this morning on The Elijah List, this prophetic word is from teacher and revivalist Amanda Wells of Brisbane and who’s associated with the Australian Prophetic Council. NOTE the reference to ‘a cloth being torn in two’ reminds me of the open vision I had in 2004 (as here):

BRITAIN: REFORMATION IS COMING WITH A FAR GREATER GLORY!

As I was in Italy when the UK voted to leave the European Union, and I awoke to the words, Continue reading

Charles Shamp: the Lion has Roared and the Eagle will Fly!

Lion_Eagle

Note: thank you David Robinson for letting me know this is on Elijah List as it’s not on the Shamp’s Facebook. Published here with links and minor editorial changes only:

For many years now our family and ministry has had a burning desire for awakening and revival to return to Great Britain. Those that follow Destiny Encounters know that last year Brynn and I, along with our children spent three months traveling across the United Kingdom ministering in every church or ministry group that would open its doors to us. There was a mandate in our hearts concerning sowing into the rich revival heritage of that land.

In fact, a year before, the Spirit of intercession had come upon me and my close friend, Munday Martin, while at a lunch meeting with the Heartbeat team that hosted us in England. I laid prostrate on the floor weeping and praying for the nation in a home outside the city of Norwich. God was placing in my heart a deep burden for those beautiful lands. Upon returning home I shared my heart with Brynn regarding what the Lord had placed in me. During that time the Lord spoke with me and said, “Son, whatever you sow into this land you will reap for your nation, America”.

When I shared this with Brynn our hearts began to burn within us with a mandate to see Britain come alive with another awakening. This word was confirmed just a few months later when Chuck Pierce called me out and prophesied that God would use us on Island Nations to shift governments. I told Chuck this was a total confirmation of what the Lord had spoken to us about going to the United Kingdom. He laughed and said, praise God that’s a big island, go for it! With the help of a wonderful team of ministers and intercessors we were able to spend three months traveling and ministering across the island. God did amazing miracles and although the meetings were not attended by hundreds of people it was a significant time of sowing into the land to see change. Our love for the United Kingdom and its destiny had become such a passion in our hearts. We even felt very strongly to cancel a trip to Germany so we could stay longer in England to sow the Word.

Honestly we felt one with the people and the land, it was supernatural. We also understood that seed takes time to grow and while we are not a mega ministry that could draw the masses to the meetings to hear what the Lord was telling us we knew that God’s word never returns void and His word carries mega impact. It has been awesome to see what the Lord has done this year as a result of those three months. The awesome outpouring that is taking place in Seattle that God graciously let us be a part of, to the tremendous miracle reports we are receiving from people that have attended meetings in America this year. God is doing mighty things, but we believe this is just the beginning!

The realm of visions and prophecy is a place of seeing and knowing in order to create God’s desire in the earth. However, the Bible is very clear that often times we are only shown in part and therefore prophesy in part. I believe that what takes place is the Prophet does his part and God does his part and it creates a whole, a whole new world. The place of visions is an environment of mystery where you are left to decipher and interpret a symbolic language that, if the prophet was to be completely transparent, he often doesn’t fully know everything the Lord is showing him in the place of interpretation. The prophet’s only desire should be to yield as an oracle and as God’s prophetic mouth piece in the earth release a ‘thus says the Lord’. Just like the Prophet Habakkuk says,

“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Habakkuk 2:1-3).

I’ve at times found myself in this place of prophesying in a meeting and afterwards thinking I fully understood what God was saying in the spirit only to come to the conclusion many months later that God was speaking on multiple levels that my natural brain couldn’t fully comprehend. I have watched over the years as the word came to pass in ways that even caught me by surprise. To me, prophecy has been like pieces of a puzzle placed together to reveal the bigger picture of God’s magnificent plan for the nations.

I’ve been cautious over the years to never give my personal opinion about politics. In fact, I try to avoid the conversation concerning any world politics because frankly I believe personal opinion doesn’t matter in world affairs, the only thing that matters are what the Lord speaks and the prophetic word shifts the natural world. I’ve only spoken when it was directed from a ‘thus says the Lord’. Last year while we were ministering in the United Kingdom the Lord gave me two specific visions about future events. The first was a vision of a terrorist attack attempt on London that I saw during a meeting in Norwich at a Heartbeat gathering. This vision was very self-explanatory and we knew as believers exactly what we must do. We prayed and as many remember several weeks later in June of 2015 there was a massive terrorist attack that was stopped.

The second was a vision and prophetic word that had deep symbolism and multiple layers of revelatory insight both naturally and spiritually for the future. The vision was concerning the United Kingdom and America and also was first given in Norwich at a Heartbeat meeting. It was a vision of revival, awakening and freedom first coming to the UK and as a result it would come to America. The word was,

“The Lion must roar before the Eagle can fly!”

I was shown in a vision a lion and an eagle. I then saw as the lion roared the eagle took flight. The lion spoke to me of Great Britain and the roar of the Lord over the land, a roar of freedom and revival. The eagle taking flight spoke to me of America and her receiving freedom and awakening as a result of what would take place in Great Britain. I released this word and later spoke to Alan Goldstone and David Cairns, leadership of the Heartbeat Team we had been working with, about it. We all felt it was a significant word for the United Kingdom and America that the two were interlocked for a great awakening and until the United Kingdom was awakened America could not see another great outpouring.

I also believe that this word was tied into the recent vote for Great Britain to leave the European Union and is a direct fulfillment of this prophetic word spoken last year. It is a trigger point in the natural for what God is doing spiritually for The United Kingdom. I believe Great Britain and America are on a prophetic timeline that is leading to a massive outpouring of the spirit once again. All the signs are lighting the way and the recent developments only make the picture become more clear, revival is near! When we study out the history of revival in the earth over the past several centuries, we can almost single-handedly point to the United Kingdom as a major hot spot and catalyst for what the Holy Spirit was doing at that time. Almost every major shift of reformation or revival started on these Island Nations.

Whether we are discussing the First and Second Great Awakenings, or go further back and discuss the mystics and catholic miracle workers that walked the shores of England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales – God has always seemed to release the fresh movement of the Holy Spirit on these Islands that has gone on to affect the entire earth. My love for Church history and the moves of the Spirit caused me to recognize that what took place within these nations directly affected America and the move of the Spirit in my nation. Although we are an ocean away, we are connected in the realm of the Spirit, and as the song of Heaven would arise over the UK, it would carry all the way to the shores of America and revival would begin to come forth in these United States.

Over the past several years we have been traveling into the UK to minister, our greatest hope and prayer has been that God would once again ignite these Islands with the wild-fire of Heaven. From the moment that I first stepped into a meeting in the nation of Wales back in 2010, I could feel something fresh was being birthed in the Spirit, something organic, something that would turn the world upside down! Something massive has shifted, the lion is roaring and revival is coming.

The earth is shaking and God’s Kingdom is coming. I know many fear change and when it comes there is often turbulence that causes people to be uncertain about the future, but surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealed his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord hath spoken, who can but prophesy? I tell you in confidence not from someone who is speaking what God is saying after the fact, but from one that has seen before hand that God is setting both the United Kingdom and America up for another massive awakening. We are the generation that will not just see revival, but we are those who will decree it into existence as Sons and Daughters of the Kingdom of God.

I want to leave you with this, God has not given you a spirit of fear United Kingdom, but He has given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Great Britain your greatest days of Glory are upon you!

Holy Spirit’s stirrings #2 – indications of Revival in the UK

Continuing with noteworthy communications received on Saturday 11th June.:

As well as the Lord’s action upon Nina and other prophetic words, I was amazed to receive Michael Marcell’s news about stirrings of the Holy Spirit in Reading because it was directly related to what had happened when I lived there.

His email alerts subscribers of UK Awakening that ‘God is moving in Reading’ and quotes a statement from Yinka Oyekan, senior leader at The Gate in Berkshire’s Thames Valley.:

‘An evangelist and his team came to minister from the US, training people to go out on the streets to speak to people about Jesus. After some worship and 20 minutes training, teams are sent out and people are very open to hearing about Jesus. Around 600 had made decisions for Christ in the first 12 days…continue reading full report from the pastor of Reading Community Church.

The details are personally relevant because I was present in the early 1990s when a prophetic vision about a revival came  to a young man in the inter-church Ditchdiggers team of youth evangelists. This was organised from Tilehurst Free Church whose young elder had worked in the revival in Argentina. (TFC’s building is now known as ‘The Gate’.)

In a prayer meeting, Chris D told us of having a vivid vision of crowds in Reading’s town centre being ‘slain’ in the Holy Spirit and coming to the Lord!  I can recall the expression of awe upon his face and in his voice as he told us about his experience.

In those days I knew precious little about the Holy Spirit’s gifts, but TFC’s Baptist pastor Rev Barry Kirk encouraged everyone to seek them. The bond between the town’s various churches was remarkably vibrant and teachers came from Kensington Temple to teach and equip us.

So do read Michael’s post, plus his others, the most recent being of stirrings of revival and the Lord’s presence, with salvations and healings in Wellington, Shropshire.  (Facebook: House of Prayer Telford.)

May you too be thoroughly blessed in reading about these ‘stirrings’…

Paws 4 thought: removal of rubbish and the Lord’s glory

Paws4thort5The surprising find of an old, unread email appears related to today’s plans, the execution of which met with awkward, technical opposition. Before taking the walk mentioned in the previous post I’d emailed single copies of an intercessory email but left the bulk for circulation as an early task this morning.

Now let’s consider that unread email.:

Upon return and preparing for the distribution of the prayer to a several dozen I first dipped into the links in the email and replied to its sender,

‘…Have only now checked the links and particularly note Andy’s closing remarks on what the Lord showed him re St Paul’s (Cathedral) and a barge taking rubbish out to sea: “It’s time to clean My house”.
 
‘The Lord’s timing is always fascinating, so maybe that reflects my thoughts on the Lord starting to expose political wrong-doings, as mentioned in my email on praying for the Camerons….’

whitehill-chase-04

That link opens with a reference reflecting something similar that I saw over the weekend on a course on Living in the Anointing.  During fervent worship in the chapel I perceived a large pool of water overflow, as though from a well with a low wall. Soon I understood it may refresh the neighbourhood as the land is slightly higher than and thus may feed into the nearby wide but shallow valley. Later, I learned a visiting preacher’s remarks last week led to a search for dried-up, disused spring of water that served the large premises.

Looking now at the hardcopy of the linked article I notice the website’s appropriate title: Living Stones in Streams of Living Water aka. deepuntodeep-joy.blogspot, and the post refers to a song on the glory of the Lord by Godfrey Birtill: ‘Are You Ready?’.

It then provides a recent marvellous prophetic word that may be akin to the vision Smith-Wigglesworth and his prayer partner Norman James had, albeit 50 years later, of Britain. The writer then tells what he sensed from the Spirit whilst walking around central London and the Thames. I’m grateful, therefore, to Beverley (Joy) Hall for circulating this news.

Read this splendid account in full via the following title:

Revd John Kilpatrick: apolitical prophecy in His Presence

Awkward internet trouble struck last Sunday afternoon!

However, resolution on Monday brought some unusual insights on America’s highly controversial presidential candidate!

Even more weirdly, whilst writing I’m struck that this post covers a ‘triple-strike’ on one particular day this month: see if you can spot it as you read. Ask yourself, “Does it confirm the previous post’s prophetic word, ‘Month of May – Domino Effect’ ?”

We couldn’t get live-streaming of Sunday morning’s service at Church of His Presence. Occasionally, there are intermittent dropouts but a simultaneously broadcast chat-room keeps e-members and ‘techies’ in touch and so we know what’s happening. But this time it was most unusual not to get any streaming connection at all in over half an hour. Then I saw their administrator’s note about the server having crashed.

I quipped to Nina, “Maybe they’re having a terrific time and the electrics are affected”.

A few years ago we heard Mahesh Chavda talk about when the powerful presence of the Lord blew stage-lighting and set off internal alarms, to which a fire brigade responded and arrived at the church meeting – but there wasn’t any fire, of the ordinary kind, that is.

Was something similar happening far beyond the other side of ‘the Pond’?? It was!!

Holy Spirit’s Presence

On Monday we caught up with the archived video and saw everyone was still affected by the evening celebration on Friday 7th May – Holy Spirit’s presence was clearly evident during Sunday’s worship.

Pastor John Kilpatrick immediately spoke about Friday evening’s celebration and referred to the Glory having fallen during the Brownsville Revival. John interviewed some who’d been there on their reactions.  Of last Friday he admitted to having struggled to preach; because it was on God’s Glory. His message had been held over from an earlier Friday, when he’d been completely unable to speak because he’d been under the ‘chabod’ or heavy weight of God’s glory – ‘slain in the Spirit’ – for several hours!

So, Sunday morning in Alabama continued in the same Revival atmosphere and one hour one minute into the service John said,

JohnK 214_logo“You know I believe what’s going on right now in the political world, somehow I believe the Lord’s right behind it!

“Here’s what I really believe and I want you to know I’m not saying (vote) democrat or a republican – understand?Listen to me: something’s going on in the political sphere!

“And something’s going on in grass-roots America and grass-roots America’s rising up and saying “We’re SICK of the political correctness. We’re SICK of our nation going down the drain. We’re SICK of decisions that’s being made that’s deteriorating America”, and the grass-roots are rising up and they’re possibly voting for somebody that makes Americans real nervous.

“And I’m not saying I’m a Trump supporter – because I’m not!…(and I’m not anyone’s supporter)…BUT I am a supporter of Revival and I’m believing God for Revival to SHOW UP in America and to SWEEP this country – from the White House to the school-house to the corn house!!…[great excitement across congregation].

“Here’s what I believe’s happening: I believe God’s shaking America back – I believe that we’ve been asleep. We’ve been in a coma but the Holy Ghost’s been slapping us [John slaps himself on both cheeks] with His Primaries and America’s waking up – “Huh? What he’d say?” – “What’d she say?”- “OMG what’s going on!” – “I’ve never seen nothing like this before!”

“And the Holy Spirit says,“Buckle your seat-belt; you ain’t never seen nothing like you’re about to see!!”

I believe that God somehow is going to translate what’s going on in the political world and bring it over into the spiritual world it’s time for spiritual correctness!

“Let God be God; I said ‘Let God be God’. Let God MOVE and let His power SWEEP this nation like it did many years ago!”….

Spirit-filled rejoicing and great excitement followed with lengthy ministry under the Glory – very definitely a church of HIS Presence!

Shake, Rattle and Roll…

John’s immense excitement as Holy Spirit sparked him into hopping and skipping whilst he moved into prophecy reminded me of an unusual word I’d read over the weekend from Australia’s Lana Vasser. Perhaps he was confirming the gist of what she received, as here:

LanaVawser‘…I have no political agenda, I am not attempting to ‘push’ anything, I am simply releasing something that I feel the Lord gave me. Recently, the Lord surprised me as I heard Him singing and I heard him singing concerning Trump. I heard the Lord singing in the same melody to the old song by Billy Haley and The Comets, “Shake, Rattle and Roll”. Yet as I heard the melody, I heard the Lord singing:

“I am using TRUMP to shake, rattle and roll..I’m using TRUMP to shake, rattle and roll… I’m using TRUMP to shake, rattle and roll”(!)”

WHAT! WHY?  To grasp this rather alarming revelation read Lana’s blog I Heard the Lord Singing Regarding Donald Trump, published last Friday 7th May .

I doubt John would have opportunity for that to have come to his attention on the other side of the world – especially as he was involved in that evening’s celebration with Lindell Cooley, and preparing to speak on Mysteries of the Glory and then come under its after-effects!!

Trump and Israel

The next day, Tuesday, I had opportunity to follow-up a headline on William Koenig’s news service World Watch Daily as a matter of particular interest to students of Bible prophecy. This was from an article in The Jerusalem Post published on Friday 7th May – Politics: On Trump’s Side (by Gill Stern Stern Hoffman).

It covers the work of British-born public relations innovator Jonny Daniels, director of the Holocaust commemoration organization From The Depths, and may be the Israeli who’s closest to Donald Trump. Daniels is quoted as saying of Trump on Israel,

“He is someone who understands our traditions, Just like Obama grew up in traditional Muslim settings, Trump has gained an appreciation of traditional Judaism.

In 2013 Trump released a video of his deep respect for Israel’s PM Netanyahu and so you may like to read Hoffman’s article in full via the above link to print-copy. (The JP website is slow to load because of a long script and excessive advertising.)  Here are some extracts for your information:

“The Donald Trump I know is thoughtful, strong-willed and an incredibly smart person,” Daniels said. “He reads people and situations and, most importantly, doesn’t give up. He will fight for Israel and – just as important for Israel – fight for the USA. A strong America is a strong Israel. Over the past eight years, there has been a massive decrease in American strength, and as the US’s great ally that has been a significant problem for us.”
“It is very good news for Israel that he will be the Republican candidate for president, because we really do have a good friend in Donald Trump,” Daniels said. “I’m not sure people realize who he is beyond his media persona. He is a politician playing politics, and there are certain things you do and say for votes, and if it’s inflammatory so be it. Netanyahu and Obama have also reached out to their voter base, and that’s what Trump has been doing.”
“He is smart enough to understand that a peace deal wouldn’t be brokered over night,” Daniels said. “When we look at his true understanding of the concerns facing Israel, we have to see it promisingly. He was vehemently against the Iran deal before he thought he would be running for president.”

My reader, did you spot the triple date references in the above three sections?  Friday 7th May.  Hmmm most intriguing….

Maybe the Lord is underscoring that material? Maybe pastor Kilpatrick’s prognostication is accurate? How say you?

Finally, today Israel Hayom publishes an interview with Trump, Israel Is the US’ Bastion of Hope,  wherein he states, “We are going to protect Israel. We will make sure it is in good shape forever”.  I’ll leave you to read his opinion on the incumbent president’s actions to jeopardize an ally by dealing with Iran.

Such interesting times…

UK/EU in/out #5: vision of Britain and our End-time purpose

An exhortation to pray for Britain’s leaders and people to know and move into God’s full purpose for us. When we humbly recognise, repent and turn from all that’s contradictory to the spirit of our prayers and seek God’s face for fuller revelation, then He promises to hear, forgive and cleanse us individually and nationally and to heal our land (per 2 Chron 7:14)

Thank you to Lynne at Father’s House of Prayer for reminding me of this powerful vision the Lord gave Wendy Alec a week after bombings on London Transport in July 2005 (see Watchman Network report). This extract from the full vision explains unequivocally why Britain should extricate itself from the anti-Christ spirits presiding across the water.:

Wendy Alec‘…And the Lord showed me huge flourishing green tree that was planted in the European mainland – its huge trunk seemed to be planted in Brussels and the foliage had grown so dense that the trees branches and foliage had grown over the English channel and covered Britain in a great dark shadow and thousands of smaller offshoots and branches had taken deep root in Great Britain – and I saw the roots tangled and grown into London and then through the British Isles up all the way to Scotland.

‘The Lord said –

“These are the deep roots of secularism and humanism that have taken deep root in this nation – these are the roots that are eroding this nation’s faith!”

‘And I saw thousands upon thousands of people bowing in obedience to this tree and the roots were tightly twisted around their ankles – but they seemed totally unaware of this – that they were bound – and so they rejected the faith of their fathers – and I saw a great scoffing and a great decline in the traditions and the foundations of the past – and this mass of people was divided into two camps – the first huge mass of people whose ankles were bound by the gnarling roots of the green tree from Europe were younger and seemed more modern in their approach – and I saw written over their head – ‘UNBELIEF’ – ‘CYNICISM’ – ‘HUMANISM’ – and the foliage and green leaves seemed to shadow their heads – and I sensed that they were being attacked at a cerebral level.”

‘But the second group seemed to be those whose roots and foundations were from the established traditional denominations of Britain – yet they were just as affected as this first group – but I saw written over their head – ‘PRIDE’ – ‘SKEPTICISM’ – ‘CLOSED MINDEDNESS’ and I sensed that the roots around their ankles had bound them in a different manner – that even if they heard the call of the Spirit in these days that the spiritual forces had them so bound that they could not move with the tide and the times of God – and I saw the green foliage literally cover and shadow their foreheads and eyes and I saw the word blinding.”

‘And I said to the Lord, “Father – what does this mean?” And He said –

“The spirits that led Europe into post Christian decline – have invaded Great Britain over these past decades – and have infiltrated and overshadowed the nation with the same humanism and paganism and secularism – and yet Britain is still so blinded by her roots and her foundations that she is still declaring herself a Christian nation” – but the Lord says that, “She has been shackled by the enemy.”

‘And I said, “Lord what can break the shackles?”

‘And the Lord spoke and said,

“The prayers and fervent supplications of My saints in Great Britain – the repentance for the sins of commission and omission on behalf of the governments of Great Britain – on behalf of the people of Great Britain.”

‘Then I asked the Lord about the Church – and He showed me thousands of people all belonging to different denominations with divisions and literally multitudes of OPINION – and somehow it seemed that the people’s opinion was all more important in their eyes than God’s opinion and I heard Him say:

“Until their opinions become My opinion the Church will continue to be divided among itself and be weak and underfed and lack the true POWER of GOD – Oh yes,” says the Lord –

“There are many meetings – there are many committees – there are many opinions – opinions – but it is not the opinion and the thoughts of men’s hearts that will change the destiny of Great Britain – but the opinion and the thoughts and intents of the word of the Living God – Humble yourselves – Humble yourselves and put aside your opinions and press into me the Living God for a living Word.”

‘And the Lord said –

“A humble and penitent heart I will not despise.”

– and I saw the words written – ‘DIVISIONS AND FACTIONS’.”

‘Then as people dropped to their knees all over Britain from every walk of life and denomination – the lion started to change – and He grew strong and sleek and his roar grew stronger. And I saw written in the spirit – “Create in me a clean heart O God – and renew a right spirit within me”. And as the people started to seek the face of the Lord I saw the word ‘COURAGE’ – and I knew that in the spirit realm that Great Britain had been endowed from the beginning of time with the mantle ‘COURAGE’ – and the Lord said,

“LIONHEART”

‘And God said Britain has yet to move into her end-time destiny in the nations – And I saw again in great letters – the words –

“THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN.”

AMEN: Lord let Your Kingdom come, Your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven…

Footnotes:

  1. Read the full account in Vision for Great Britain which opens with encouragement for intercessors and reference to angelic activity followed by a promised awakening of the Church and for Great Britain as a ‘Land of End-time Destiny’, even hinting at changes in the United States!
  2. The vision came 11 years before the long-awaited Referendum, the results of which will be known in time for its 11th anniversary in July. Number 11 is said to symbolise disorder, chaos and judgment (BibleStudy.org). Pray the voting turns out God’s way.
  3. Perhaps we’ll see monumental governmental changes on both sides of the ‘Pond’!
  4. UPDATE April 2017: the importance of this vision resurfaced 12 years later in connection with two related prophetic words (Fulfilled Prophecies #19 Britain’s Shackles Now Shattered and Spiritual Shift Across Northern Hemisphere…).

Lana Vawser: new alignments, assignments & power stations – globally!

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti

This message was in my in-tray first thing and reinforces the vision of Veronika West in yesterday’s blog, and other prophetical voices on shifting, shaking and on re-alignments. 

New Alignments, New Assignments & Power Stations Being Set Up Across The Nations (issued 13/04/16 at 08:25)

LanaVawserAs I sat with the Lord today, He was highlighting ALIGNMENTS to me again. He was speaking to me about the SURPRISE ALIGNMENTS that are taking place right now in this season. There is a deep shifting and shaking of alignments taking place. In this “shifting and shaking” of alignment, the Lord is creating new bridges of connection and networking in the body of Christ. In this “SHIFTING AND SHAKING”, He is “MOVING AND SHAKING!”.
We must be leaning in, in this season to be following where the Spirit of God is leading in the aligning and the networking. He is establishing alignments that we have only ever dreamed of, and He is shaking alignments that He has not established.
All of the “SHIFTING AND SHAKING” of alignments right now is not a bad thing, it is to position us as the people of God in our God given destinies for the “NEXT STEPS” that He has for us and the strategic people and alignments that we must be standing with in this season as we act as catapults and bridges for each other. He is establishing and re-establishing healthy networks in the body of Christ.
As this “SHIFTING AND SHAKING” of alignments is taking place I saw GLORIOUS NEW ASSIGNMENTS being established and SUDDENLY birthed. In the “joining” of these new alignments the Lord was releasing an increase and promotion in assignments.
BE OKAY WITH “DIVINE INTERUPTIONS”
I heard the words “Be okay with DIVINE INTERRUPTIONS”. The Lord is bringing DIVINE INTERRUPTIONS in this season. Be okay with the divine interruptions, if He goes in a completely different direction to what you were expecting, embrace it, embrace Him, follow Him, because He is leading you into MO
PRAY! PRAY! PRAY IN THESE ALIGNMENTS AND ASSIGNMENTS!!!
In these new alignments and joint assignments I saw the Lord releasing a “key” to MAKING ROOM for Him and instantly I saw what looked like an “upper room” and there was a lot of prayer, intercession and waiting on the Lord taking place. I then heard the Lord say “In these new alignments and joint assignments PRAYER MUST BE the PRIORITY.” There was such an increase in prayer the Lord was calling His people to, as they “joined together” there were SUDDEN visitations and explosions of His power on a level that has NEVER been seen before.
I then heard Him speak again:
“As you pray in these alignments and assignments” I am moving and shaking by the power of My Spirit and making room to SET UP POWER STATIONS ACROSS THE NATIONS”
“Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, That the mountains might quake at Your presence” (Isaiah 64:1)
The greatest illustrations and demonstrations of His POWER were going to be displayed through these POWER STATIONS. His POWER is falling and going to continue to fall and increase in SIGNIFICANT ways as we stay attuned to His Spirit and His leading. I saw His power falling like lightning, His voice like thunder and lightning but there was NO FEAR. NO FEAR but a release of the AWE OF GOD in these POWER STATIONS across the nations where the people of God fell before Him shouting “Glory, glory, the God of glory!”
“The lightning-fire flashes, striking as He speaks. God reveals Himself when He makes the fault lines quake; shaking deserts, speaking His voice. With fear and trembling man and beast are jolted with His voice like thunder, forests are laid bare. While in His temple all fall before Him each one shouting “Glory, glory, the God of glory! Above the furious flood, the Enthroned One lives, the King-God rules with eternity at His side. This is the One who gives His strength and might to His people. This is the Lord giving His kiss of peace.” – Psalm 29:7-11 (The Passion Translation)
AWE! AWE! AWE! AWE ALL AROUND!
INCREDIBLE demonstrations of the power and Glory of God are upon us that are going to wreck us in the most glorious way, like we have never been wrecked before by the power of God and it is going to leave a HOLY SILENCE in many places as He COMES in POWER!!!!!! AWE! AWE! AWE! AWE ALL AROUND! He is breaking out of boxes displaying His incredible power.
“Things are about to get divinely MESSY as I lead My people deeper into the glorious undoing of who I am and My love. Some will feel completely out of control and on the outside it will look messy, but it is a PERFECTLY ORCHESTRATED HEAVENLY MESS as I BREAK boxes, limitations and expectations.”
These POWER STATIONS across the nations ranged from churches, to home groups, to married couples and families praying, friends praying together, the invitation was open to ALL. The key was to LISTEN to where He is aligning and STEP IN and make ROOM for Him!!!
These power stations were seeing the power of God fall so incredibly, the people of God were being transformed, shining with His Glory like never before, activated in giftings old and new with significant increase, signs and wonders were exploding ALL AROUND and HIS POWER was exploding out of these places and bringing EARTHQUAKES in the spirit of BREAKTHROUGH to individual lives, cities and nations. The hardest of ground being BROKEN OPEN by the power of God testifying that it is NOT by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord. (Zechariah 4:6)
People coming in and out of these “power stations” were being healed, set free and delivered in an instant by the power of God. These “power stations” were seeing the power of God released into other networks, activating them and setting them alight and positioned into their destiny.
The power of God is being demonstrated in unprecedented ways right now, and it is about to increase in explosive ways. Get ready to be undone by His power, His goodness and love in unprecedented ways.
We are about to truly see… “THE KING IS HERE!”

(Emphasis added – Maranatha!)

Note: the references to ‘power stations’ echo ‘Phase 2’ of the thrice-repeated vision of 1967 that blessed Jean Darnall. After Phase 1’s ‘glowing fires’ she saw lightning strikes hitting them, some explosively – see Words of Our Time.
