GPS#11 Part 3: Dr Sharon Stone – new prophetic season for UK

Now, I get to use the graphic I almost used for the first part of my 11th instance of God’s GPS (Global Prophecy Signals) but for ‘AD’s reminder as I was about to publish it!  To my mind it’s symbolic of the positioning of comms satellites over and around the earth but immersed in an influx of spiritual power and information.

This series of GPS#11 is about an influx of events and information I received during the fortnight covering the end of January and first complete week of February, all of which are related to the increasing need to pray for Great Britain. The first part featured ‘AD’s email reminding the Church to humble ourselves, repent of our wrongdoing and pray for change in ourselves so our nation maybe blessed. The second brought a strong word of encouragement for the ecclesia in following the Lord’s will and bringing about His plans for Britain. [NB: my editorial haste led to a couple of minor amendments being made – especially that we “Arise and accept the commission…”, and spell-checker changes of  ‘thou’ to ‘though’.]

As intimated in my New Year’s Blessing to readers, its relation to the Word for 2018 Leisa delivered, the ‘resurrection’ of the Word on Castles and Praying for UK from Liz Evans, all plugging into Jane Hamon’s word about receiving a Prophet’s Reward, I’ve been mulling over the possibility of a new level of insight and authority in my writings as being akin to prophetic declarations. (Some ‘sabbatical’, LOL.)

This was confirmed by Dr Sharon Stone in how she prayed for delegates at the year’s first mentoring day on 3rd February that, however we start the year, our posture puts us in a place of alignment to succeed, to fulfill and to accomplish the themes Father has put before us. Before teaching on how to ‘Engage’ with Jesus she referred to what she received in January when the Lord spoke to her and said,

“Sharon, I have given you a good reputation in the land.” For this I thank Him. He’s given me favour with many, but now He’s saying, “NOW, let’s use it!”  

I felt like I was given TEETH…I mean the threshing instrument with teeth [Isaiah 41:15].

“You know when you’re pioneering a lot of the time you operate in a lot of protocol and become all things to all people so there might be understanding and agreement and wisdom, and you encourage and you persuade…and you do all those things and you change the label of the prophetic to fit in every place you go because you know that when they get a taste of it they won’t let go; because it’s their Lord, their Saviour, their Deliverer, their Healer, their Restorer, their Redeemer.

“And so when they recognise that’s THE voice they realise how contagious it is, then they realise they cannot live without the voice of God, without having that greater clarity on the inside. How can they fulfill their destiny without having a greater understanding of strategy? How can they possibly know what to do with their day without having a God that speaks to them as a time manager, even to help them fulfill everything that God’s called them to do?

“I’ve done all that and the Lord says, “Now let’s use that reputation!”

“Amen, I don’t believe that reputation solely rest upon my shoulders and so I pray right now for these (delegates):

“Father, we’re in a different prophetic season with teeth, not one with just protocol. Father this isn’t a season of political correctness!

“Father, this is a prophetic season of TEETH! And so where many of us have allowed diplomacy to fill our mouths – we thank You for that God – but I release right now the sharpness of Your sword; I release the sharpness of Your teeth to accomplish much in the name of Jesus; the sharpness of  the threshing instrument to be able to accomplish what needs to be accomplished.

“And so stand here and speak to the enemy and say: Where you have thought you could run alongside us and that we’d do nothing about you, we declare today that we put you on notice and command you: Back up and back off! – in the name of Jesus!”

Sharon and delegates then went into warfare mode!

Afterwards, I happened to chat with one of her associates, Suzanne Ferrett, with whom I’d shared what I’d ‘seen’ out at Runnymede area, where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215 AD. Now, I hear about her prophetic intercessory ministry based upon a spiritual version of that Great Charter.

I began to see the ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ coming together once again as this plugs into not only the prophetic word about castles, but also my researches on the history of Reading and the Thames Valley in the times of King Alfred and his establishment of Christian government across ancient Wessex and Mercia – see Historical Research hub.

Therefore, I recommend Suzanne’s website Passion For The Nation to all intercessors –  visit and peruse by clicking on this image:

Brief update to Bible Update on ‘Gog-Magog’: Israel & US vs Iran & Russia

The necessity for brevity in Bible Update: Ezekiel 38-9 – Iran vs Israel – USA and Russia? meant I didn’t expand upon the parenthesis in my opening remark, ‘…news of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s threat to ‘open the gates of hell’ over the Zionist regime (not the first such threat)…’. Let me now explain:

Please don’t listen to claims of evangelical Christians supporting Israel because they want to hasten the battle of Armageddon. In fact, the reality is that Shiite theology desires exactly that in order to bring about the return of their hidden 12th Imam, or Mahdi – and supposedly accompanied by the prophet Jesus!

Thus, the ultimate goal of Iran’s theocratic regime is the removal of the Jewish state of Israel, as I was stunned to see thirty years ago!

[Those who’ve read my Bio Info may recall that, whilst casually flicking through a new book I’d been given I noticed lots of references to the significance of Jerusalem, I also was watching a documentary on then raging Iraq-Iran war. Suddenly I heard a narrator on TV say what’s being shown is elite units from opposing forces rehearsing together an attack upon Jerusalem – that is, despite being at war with one another!!  Thus began my appreciation as a non-believer in the Bible’s prophetic value. The truth of this reality got confirmed in peculiar instances (‘God-incidents’) after I’d started blogging, especially around its fourth anniversary in November 2013 – see The Invisible Hand Reappears and Did My Triple Warning About Iran Affect WordPress Connections? and from 2015,  What’s Weird About Writing About Iran.]

So it comes as no surprise to see this headline in this morning’s Jerusalem Post: Israeli Defense Minister : Iran Declared War On Us Long Ago.: ‘Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday. “Iran declared war on us long ago. The highest echelons in Tehran want to erase the Zionist entity, they do not hide the fact that they want to wipe the State of Israel off the face of the earth” Liberman said at annual conference…“Iran is also fighting us through their proxies: Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and now Hamas and of course the Syrian regime.Therefore, it is a daily war not only in the military aspect but also in the realm of international terrorism and we do everything in order to preserve Israel’s security,” adding that Israel maintains absolute freedom of action and will do everything necessary to prevent Iran from consolidating themselves in Syria.

USA and Russia in Syria

Now news has emerged in the MSM of American forces blowing up a Russian-made tank in self-defence against an attack by Syrian troops loyal to Assad and backed by Russian mercenaries, here’s a list of linked-headlines US-Russia conflict I was unable to locate for the earlier post but which are now available:

DEBKA also claims Israel’s downing of Iran’s drone is part of a larger scenario of US-Russian involvement (to be revealed in report to subscribers).

Fulfilled Prophecy #26 – Exposed: ‘coup’ threats against Brexit and against Trump

UTTERLY fantastic ‘coincidence’ with what I’ve prepared for publishing today, as though more pie ces of God’s ‘Invisible Jigsaw’!  One warning of a possible coup d’etat, another of international meddling, both exposing corrupt and apparently centrally directed, anti-democratic chicanery on opposite sides of ‘The Pond’.

Daily Telegraph’s investigative journalists are to be warmly congratulated (click to read)

The strap-line and opening paragraph of this exclusive investigation read:

‘Billionaire financier Soros hosts campaign dinner to undermine May and keep Britain in the EU – George Soros, the billionaire known as the man who “broke the Bank of England”, is backing a campaign to overturn Brexit, the Telegraph can disclose.

‘The investor is one of three senior figures linked to the Remain-supporting campaign group Best for Britain who plan to launch a nationwide advertising campaign this month, which they hope will lead to a second referendum to keep Britain in the EU. The campaign is trying to recruit major Tory donors in an attempt to undermine Theresa May.

‘It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election, according to a strategy document leaked from a meeting of the group….’ [NB: ‘premium’ content, but one item/week may be accessed free-of-charge.]

This isn’t entirely new because in Why Leave the EU? Jonathan Ely posted rumours of Soros’ interference in our democratic decision to leave the ‘Tower of Babel/Brussels’. Also, December’s issue of Christian Voice published an in-depth report on Soros’ pan-EU anti-Brexit web by Stephen Green (see Farage Exposes Soros Plotters).

On the Other Side of ‘The Pond’

A fortnight ago today I blogged about corruption worse than the Watergate scandal surfacing, as another example of fulfillment of my prophetical musing about the exposure of rotten politics and corruption in the UK, USA – and EU? (Months later examples erupted here and here, then a year later here; others brought prophecies on it, as blogged here and here in November 2016 and here a year later.)

Thank you Jennie C and Lynne H for informing me of news emerging the day before my blog of Franklin Graham’s warning about the ‘Deep State Threat’ – even a ‘coup d’etat’ – against President Trump.

In recent months the so-called “deep state” has been all over the news in America. A WND report of January says, “Loosely defined, it’s the career bureaucrats who wield considerable influence on the policy and practice of the federal government. While the heads of agencies are political appointees changing with each president, “deep state” members, with their own political ideologies and agendas, remain.”

Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Franklin at a dinner held on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and his famous international charity, Samaritan’s Purse.

Also, I recall Franklin having fallen foul of Obama’s policies in his first presidential term and I mentioned a couple of instances in an email of 2010 to friends: the Pentagon had withdrawn their invitation to attend a prayer breakfast and Muslim activists wanted him banned from attending America’s National Prayer Day!!! 

Yet he was one of several pastors who were invited to pray for Donald Trump at his Inauguration!

Fox News’ Franklin Graham Warns of Deep State Coup Against President Trump, is summarised as follows (courtesy Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House of 26 January, Bill’s emphases retained):

‘One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

“I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Franklin Graham said Wednesday (24th) on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.

‘Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

‘The evangelical leader did not name names, but he suggested the mainstream media was complicit in the silent coup. Click here to listen to the shocking interview.

“They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

‘Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

That was a fortnight ago. For an update, with interpretation for we Brits, on the situation let’s check out the lady journalist ‘going wherever the evidence leads’, Melanie Phillips. In last Sunday’s article on the now-famous Nunes Memo her analysis leads her to note and conclude:

‘Bottom line seems to me to be that the FBI and DoJ misled the FISA court by failing to provide it with information that seriously called into question the reliability of the evidence put to it to support the request for a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. That would seem to be, to put it mildly, a serious abuse of legal process which totally undermined the protection afforded to the public against abuse of the FISA surveillance powers designed to guard against terrorist offences

‘We don’t know anything like the full picture on all this and so must be cautious. It may be that further information will emerge which will radically change the story that’s now unfolding. But as things stand, it looks very much as if, under the Obama administration, certain senior figures in the FBI and DoJ corrupted the administration of law enforcement and subverted the US constitution.

‘This is deeply shocking, and Congress must now continue to place more information in the public domain so that we can all finally assess just what took place here and just how deep this most fetid swamp has become.’

It must NOT escape our attention that Soros and Obama are in cahoots as more-or-less leaders of the Organization for Action (OfA) – AND the Telegraph’s journalists point out its violent nature as witnessed in the US and warns of a distinct possibility of similar deliberately organised manifestations happening in Britain!

On the Soros meeting in London, those investigators tell of a leaked strategy document for a campaign to undermine Brexit that reveals,

‘…a series of Momentum-style mass rallies and concerts are planned and the campaign will have a “heavy youth focus”…and reveals a plan to  “pressure” MPs in 100 Leave-supporting constituencies and sets out how organisers have a range of guerrilla marketing tactics” to build momentum.

‘(Soros’) involvement comes more than 25 years after he made over £1 billion betting against the pound shortly before the UK withdrew from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. More recently he has been accused of organising rallies against Donald Trump in the US and interfering in the democracies of several European nations.’ (Emphasis mine)

A year ago the New York Post, as part of the MSM not noted as a Trump supporter, reported on How Obama’s Scheming to Sabotage the Trump Presidency via the OfA.

As there’s no smoke without fire, maybe the Christian journalists who were deeply wary of the person and policies of the past American president, claiming he and Soros may be furthering the Antichrist’s agenda and strategies, could have discerned ‘the devil in the detail’?

The very best days of the Church are fast approaching

An especial thank you to the Lord and Jeffrey Stewart, and to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this word, which provides not only a second confirmation but also a very precise one of a scripture I’d already quoted (footnote refers; formatting mine):

GOD HAS SAVED THE BEST DAYS OF THE CHURCH FOR LAST

The Lord Jesus says:

“You are a privileged generation. You are a generation that makes Me immensely proud.

“For it is THIS generation that will walk in FAR more revelation than any previous generation.

“It is THIS generation that will walk in FAR more anointing than any previous generation.

“The END of a thing is better than the beginning. (Eccl 7:8)

“The Days of the Church that you are about to see will far exceed its beginning days recorded in the Book of Acts.

“You look in awe at the things I did in the Book of Acts. You look in awe at the power the Church in the Book of Acts walked in.

“I tell you that what My Church is about to walk in shall cause the Church in Acts to be pale in comparison.

“The Church you are about to see will walk in far more love, far more unity, and far more anointing than the early church ever imagined.

“My prayer for the church to be ONE, even as I and the Father are one, in John 17 will be answered in your generation, just as every prayer I pray is answered. Yes, many of you will see this and rejoice. As will I. What is impossible for man is easily possible for My Father. My People WILL BE ONE just as My Father and I are one. Just as it is in Heaven.

“From this unity will flow unified prayer as you have never seen. Just as I honoured such prayer with a mighty outpouring of My Spirit in Acts 2:2 and Acts 4:31, I shall honour these unified prayers with a great outpouring that will shake cities as I shook Jerusalem.

“The Great Commission will be fulfilled in this generation. You will see this and rejoice.

“My people will walk in such anointing, that:

“one will enter a town and every demon will flee. Even demons in people who are possessed will not be able to remain;

“another will walk in such anointing that he will enter a hospital, AND EVERY sick person in that hospital shall be healed.

“When I turned water into wine, the master of the banquet said that he normally served the best wine first, but at that wedding, he saved the best wine for last.

“I tell you, I have saved the BEST DAYS OF THE CHURCH FOR LAST.

“I have saved the GREATEST MIRACLES for last, too.

“The miracles you saw in the days of Moses, as great as they were, even the splitting of the Red Sea, shall pale in comparison to what you are ABOUT to see.

“The miracles you saw in the Days of Joshua, as great as they were, even the stopping of the Sun and the Moon in the sky, shall look SMALL in comparison to what I am ABOUT to do.

“Before I return, every person on earth WILL KNOW that the Gospel is true. They may not all accept it, but they will be WITHOUT excuse.

“I am IMMENSELY proud of you. You are a HIGHLY HONORED generation.

“Men from the past longed to see what you will see.

“You are the final runners in the relay race.

“You are My ‘A’ Team.

“Those who came before you are trusting you with the baton.

“I am confident you will complete the race before you. You will make Me proud.

“You were created for this day and this time. You will see the Church be what I meant for her to be.

“You will see this and rejoice. As will I.”

Jeffrey Stewart, 17th January 2018

AMEN, AMEN and AMEN again !!!!

Footnote:

The reference to John 17 is remarkable!  My introductions to the last two posts refer to RJ Dawson on Jesus destroying division and to my encounter with ‘Christian’ aides of the Accuser. Instances of condemnatory criticism return my mind to Jesus’ prayer to our heavenly Father, as recorded in John 17.

In fact, only yesterday – the day Jeffrey posted the above word – was I discussing that issue with RJ Dawson on his original post as he’d responded to my re-blog. He then quoted from his book:

“A long time ago in an upper room far, far away, 120 people got real. Within a matter of days, their number had increased to several thousand. After only a few years, the community had spread far and wide, achieving phenomenal growth well into the tens of thousands of members, each person having a purpose and each very real. Over the next few centuries, however, another assemblage emerged. Its characteristics were strikingly different. It did not possess the powerful testimony of the earlier group. Miraculous happenings were very few and far between. Its varied teachings were impure and often incomprehensible, and the active participation of every member in ministry was not emphasized. As a result, the great love and concern for one’s fellow believer held in high regard by the originals was greatly lacking, and its unity was coerced. And sadly, gone in this assembly was the total dependence and trust in the Lord Jesus, His dominion being replaced by that of others.” © 2001 by R.J. Dawson. Real Christianity—The Nature of the Church. All rights reserved.

I replied: ‘Exactly so RJ. I’m of opinion that as soon as the gospel according to John went into circulation then satan’s strategy would be to thwart Jesus’ prayer at John 17:20-23!’  I didn’t quote it because we both know it, but he then quoted it in full:

“I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.”

Its so obvious that, after being defeated by the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, the hater of humanity’s prime strategy would be to attack and wreak division throughout the body of His disciples. Through such disunity, deep divisions and inability to do the ‘greater things’ that Jesus promised in John 14:12, the enemy of our souls duped humanity into not believing that God really did send Jesus to save us from our sins and deliver us from bondage to satan.

So, thank you Lord for indicating that at long last Your prayer will soon be answered. Let Your Word become true in our day…

Selah!

2018: Year of the ‘Prophet’s Reward’ – more on ‘castles’

We start again with more ‘serendipity’ on the Word/Call to Pray for the Nation because ‘The Finger of God’ is definitely pointing at what Liz Evans brought in 2010. That is, it’s getting strongly reinforced!

Also, this ‘God-incidence’ promises the Lord’s favour to all who receive all that comes from Him and through those bringing His written and inspired words. So may you, my reader, be greatly favoured this year.

Just after noon on Monday I published a copy of that word/call and began mulling over  how to blog about my personal connection. Almost concurrently, Elijah List published a closely related word!  I’m indebted to Lynne at Father’s House of Prayer for forwarding that one’s full text to me within the hour.  I replied, ‘It certainly seems to fit in with what I was subconsciously sensing about this 7th year of blogging, in prep for going up a level – hence my New Year blog and surprising award

Jane Hamon, Dr Sharon Stone’s close associate at Christian International in Florida, writes in 2018 Word of the Lord: A Year of the Prophet’s Reward about what she’d received:

‘As I prayed about the upcoming season in the Church and what God is saying to us for 2018, I had a vision in which I saw and heard the words “A Time for the Prophet’s Reward.” Jesus spoke about this in Matthew 10:40-41 saying, “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.” The word “receive” means “to take hold of, to accept, to receive favorably, to embrace, to give ear to, to make one’s own”This is what we must do with Christ in our lives. To receive Him is to receive the Father. And to receive a prophet and those who are righteous will bring blessing in our lives.

‘Later I saw just the words “Prophet’s Reward” written on a giant battering ram which was slamming against a huge locked gate. I knew the anointing of the Prophet’s Reward was going to open tremendous opportunities for the Kingdom of God to advance. Those who have received prophetic promises from God and those who operate and function in prophetic ministry will experience one of the greatest seasons of honor, advancement, promotion and favor as we align and actively participate with all God has said.’

Next, a fascinating difference of sub-headers follows, BUT BOTH are very apposite!  The website’s first sub-head is ‘The Significance of 30 and Prophetic Fulfillment’, whereas what Lynne sent me reads as follows (note Jane’s content reinforces previous posts and comments, plus important historical data – the underlining is mine):

NOW IS THE TIME!

So why would this be a focused year to receive this anointing? This year we celebrate 30 years since the birth of the prophetic movement.

Prior to 1988, there were only a few places in the earth that were experiencing dreams, visions, angelic visitations and prophetic revelation. However, that year at Christian International (as well as several other places on earth) we spiritually birthed the prophetic movement. We recognized that God was raising up a company of prophets and prophetic people who could communicate His heart, will and mind to the earth. Today, it is now widely accepted throughout Christianity that God is still speaking TO His people and THROUGH His people and that as we hear God’s Voice it can change our world.

‘The number 30 signifies a promotion into a new season of success. This is a new season of authority and blessing for prophetic ministry and for seeing the prophesied word come to pass. It is a launching season! Jesus was launched into his earthly ministry at the age of 30 accompanied by signs, wonders, miracles, authority, power over demons and a heart to demonstrate that the Kingdom of God had come. 30 was a very important number in the Jewish culture. It was considered to be the year of maturity for leadership. Priests were dedicated to service at age 30. (Intercession). Men were eligible for military service at age 30. (Warfare). Ezekiel was called as a prophet at age 30 (Prophetic). Men were considered of age to run their father’s business at age 30. (Marketplace). This year get ready to be mantled for a new level of authority in your area of prophetic calling.

’30 was also a year linked to fulfillment of prophetic destiny, overcoming & rulership…

‘The Prophets Reward launches us into similar times of fruition when all we may have struggled through comes to an appointed time of grace and fulfillment so that we can step into our time to rule and legislate for the Kingdom of God in the earth. 30 also signifies prosperity & posterity. In the book of Judges, one of the judges, Jair, had 30 sons. He gave each of them a horse and a city! (Judges 10:4)

‘So you see, in this 30th year of the prophetic ministry, all that has gone before has actually only been preparatory to what comes next. Where before the prophetic was met with skepticism and resistance, now there is honor and excitement to hear the Word of the Lord. The Voice of God is being integrated into the church and being drawn on in the business world. Even local and national governmental officials long to hear answers from the heart of God so they can have the capacity to bring their city or even nation into the Prophets Reward of breakthrough. One of the new things to watch for is how effectively prophets and prophetic ministry cross into the mainstream of culture, not just the mainstream of the church. Secular leaders will become increasingly open to hear what God is saying, even those who don’t know Him yet.

‘The Lord is saying it is time to receive the Prophet’s Reward whether you have been a part of what God has been doing the last 30 years or if you are brand new to the movement, your reward is the same. During this 30th year of prophetic ministry, we should expect a greater anointing for fulfillment of prophetic destiny, blessings of prosperity upon ourselves and our families, greater revelation, greater miracles, signs and wonders than ever before.’

WHAT’S THE PROPHET’S REWARD?

Jane Hamon goes on to ask ‘What is the Prophet’s Reward? and, in answering, cites  scriptural examples (that number again! – see closing paras of previous post):

  1. The miracle we need that money cannot buy
  2. The reward of provision
  3. The reward of posterity
  4. The reward of new beginnings
  5. The reward of breakthrough
  6. The reward of opportunity and favour
  7. The reward that heaven will fight for you
  8. The reward of nation changing.
NUMBER 8

Under #4 Jane refers to numbers as follows:

‘This is the Roman calendar year 2018 and the Hebraic calendar year 5778. Both years end in the number 8 – which signifies new beginnings, reformation and resurrection life. Jesus was resurrected on the first day of the week which was the 8th day. Josiah, a reformer, began his reign at age 8 bringing a new era in the midst of idolatrous predecessors. He also began to seek the Lord for himself in the eighth year of his reign which later resulted in His purging Israel of the altars of Baal. Likewise, Solomon began to purge the idols from Israel in the 8th year of his reign. The 8 of Reformation will always call us back to the straight path and righteous living. 

‘Since I mentioned the number 8, I should mention here the biblical meaning of the number ’18’ is blessing and long life…Finally, the number 18 is tied to judges. There were 18 judges from the time of Joshua until Saul became king. The first judge, Joshua, ruled 18 years. I believe it is time to see a new beginning in the courts of our land with a return to righteous rulership…’.

The above extracts should encourage readers to peruse and meditate upon the full text via the above title or this link. May you be mightily blessed.

A FEW THOUGHTS

The emphasis upon ruling and justice is noticeable and reinforces that dominant theme in connection with ‘castles’ throughout the Word and Call to Pray for our Nation. Buried in the email shown in that post’s follow-up is a reference to a word I’d heard at Bath in March 2009:

‘The phrase ‘Prepare to rule’ had inexplicably dropped into my mind. Was this for the church to get ready to be in the position to rule with Jesus upon His return?’

The significance of the historic 30-years is personally noteworthy because 30 years ago I reactivated my search for the Truth, which led into my encounter with Him in 1989 (for details read “I’m Free!”).

Finally, let’s not forget the first ‘Nationwide Prophetic Circuit Message’ from the Lord says of this year: “2018, I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly ‘My Numbers’, such as dates, times and even denominations of money as I loose significant detail and even finance…”  

Prophetic ‘castle’ words and pictures now coming into play

Several readers have commented or emailed me on the timeliness of the word from Liz Evans in her Call to pray for our nation and establish God’s rule.

It is undated and thereby avoids attribution of dating or thinking its ‘dated’, or it’s gone stale. After all, the Lord looks over His word to ensure it achieves its purpose and thus doesn’t return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). This word brought by Liz was received several years ago, but we’ll connect the ‘prophetic dots’ or ‘jigsaw pieces’ and examine them as being evidence from the Lord as to that word being timely for 2018.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

Many regulars will be familiar with my use of godly coincidences as a tool in receiving, checking and testing prophetic words and visions. The scriptural warrant for doing so is quite clear but new readers wishing to investigate further are directed to ‘The Protocol of Prophecies’ in An Introduction to Prophecy.

‘BRIDGE o’er POND’ – ALABAMA

At about five past five last Sunday afternoon I found myself nodding in agreement with pastor John Kilpatrick at Church of His Presence saying the Lord has been giving him prophetic words for each new year…but it was the actual date that made me nod:

“It started in 2009 when the Lord first gave me a prophetic word. We waited on the Lord for the New Year and when He left I just got a download…” (listen from 1:03:00 here)

I was pleased to get a confirmation from a pastor that 2009 had been the start of a prophetic process for him too. Yet for me it had been a ‘need’ to write on the prophetic. Moreover, I’d been unconscious to a specific thread that had been sewn throughout the years until recently, when another sudden shower of serendipity surrounded me with ‘jigsaw pieces’ – just like snowflakes lying around my feet!

This time, it gave me grounds to get out my old files from 2009-10.  And this wasn’t the first time buttons had been pressed to open up and relive my visual memory.

The first such ‘re-opening’ had come after debating an issue at Prophecy Today in mid-December. A confirmatory word brought by Brett Dewey had plugged so powerfully into one of mine in 2011 when I’d had a very vivid dream relating to Bill Johnson’s prophecy on that 3rd September being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK. Brett’s dream in December 2017 showed that what ‘our’ dreams cover is now at the next stage of active unveiling – God-incidents Validate Three Prophetic Visions refers.

[Moreover, Brett’s earlier vision of a beach and wall has strong similarities to details in a personal prophecy given to me by Bath’s team in 2005 when we met Liz.]

‘BRIDGE o’er POND’ – ARIZONA

The second ‘re-opening’ of my visual memory came last week from Tony Puccio after I’d joked in his second England Ablaze about his ‘spiritual observatory’ in Tucson, Arizona. On Wednesday 3rd he kindly sent me a file with covering note simply saying,  ‘Thought this might interest you’ – Wot! – a HUGE understatement!

Kitt Peak National Observatory outside Tucson (RB 4.2008)

In view of a couple of dreams he’d had about an inevitable change of monarch, I’d already put him in touch with a group of intercessors, who’d kindly supplied some historical prophecies on the royal family. It included a transcript of Liz Evan’s Word for UK.

I replied to Tony: ‘Re your…attachment that MIGHT interest me Tony!! It MOST certainly does, as explained below – I’m extremely grateful you’ve kept me in the loop on this…as its re-connecting me and taking me ‘full circle’…

‘…we often went to Bath City Church as it’s very special to us since 2002 (we married 6 months later) and it’s where we connected into the prophetic and met Sharon Stone and Liz Evans very soon afterwards.  Liz’s website is endorsed by a close friend of ours.’

I copied Liz into that reply and, after greeting her, wrote, ‘Tony’s attachment of the ‘Call’ you brought and its reference to castles immediately opened up my visual memory to the time several years ago I told you of the angels on battlements I saw close by Bath City Church.  Think I may also have emailed you on what I’d sensed of Windsor Castle being a connection between heaven and earth and then sharing that with Sharon six years ago next month!  (I didn’t know she’d soon move there)

‘Only last weekend did we watch episode 5 of The Crown (on Netflix) and noted its very close attention to detail of the ‘secret ceremony’ of Her Majesty being anointed during her Coronation, and to which your article refers. (My Her Majesty’s 90th birthday also refers.)’

BATTLEMENTS o’er BATH

I find in my personal prophecies papers that I’d emailed Liz on 18 March 2010, after our attending BCC’s Partner’s Day and wanting to discuss that weekend: ‘Yesterday was most encouraging and exciting, especially in what you said about castles and Magna Carta for I believe it may be relevant to some things that popped up over the last year… it develops upon the vision that Sharon weighed at her school [in Bath] a few years ago.’

There wasn’t time at the next weekend school to discuss, so I followed up with the details of what I’d seen in 2009, as may be read in this scanned email:

Liz replied, “Fantastic, definitely worth weighing” but I don’t recall seeing a paper version of what she’d shared. However, someone had transcribed it from her ‘Prophecy in the UK’ session at 2010 Release Conference in Bristol with Bill Johnson (him again!) and Mark Stibbe. A copy of that came from Tony, but Liz kindly sent me her version for publication (see previous post).

INVISIBLE JIGSAW PIECES

After last Thursday’s frenetic to-and-fro of the above messages the following ‘God-incidental’ input soon burst upon the scene:

  1. I realised 7 years have elapsed since this Call was made at Release 2010.
  2. That evening’s meeting with our curate of Bramshott & Liphook Church discussed her pre-Alpha spirituality course. She will be teaching on ‘interior castles’ (per Carmelite St Teresa of Avilla)!!
  3. Thus, I told her of my day’s activity and past connection with ‘castles’ and she reminded me of her Bath connections: especially Paul Skelton’s H.O.T.S. and ministry in India. (Soon after launching this blog I helped Paul by publicising the issues HOTS Bath had with Advertising Standards Agency in 2012)
  4. Our vicar Valentine Inglis-Jones was previously curator at Holy Trinity, Coombe Down Bath, and will be with out there with Paul later this month!

So Sunday’s passing remark by pastor John in Daphne, Alabama, makes yet one more confirmatory ‘God-incidence’. On top of all that is what I’d sensed about Windsor Castle in 2011 and shared with Sharon in February 2012.

HEAVEN TOUCHING EARTH

In that month, at a conference in Torquay, I mentioned to Sharon that Nina and I had visited Windsor the previous year and I’d sensed a spiritual atmosphere there. As we spoke, an image of its Castle’s famous round tower came into mind. This was followed by the idea its crenellated battlements look like the teeth of a giant cogwheel, and this could fit into some sort of invisible socket where earth could get plugged into heaven!

It’s a little hard to explain but then the thought dropped into mind that such engagement would enable the heavenly kingdom to ‘wind up’ our earthly kingdom – or ‘queen-dom’ – for the Lord’s purposes (eg. revival) – rather like putting a key into and winding up a clockwork toy. [Paws 4 Thought – a Special Town in the Thames Valley refers.]

There’s other observations I could make but for now let’s note Liz’s emphasis is reiterated by Suzanne Payne editor of UK Prophetic Words (emphasis added),

“Richard…it is a key time for this word!

Now, it is particularly significant that 8 years have passed since Liz published the full word and call to Christians to defend our Nation and establish God’s rule. In biblical symbolism 8 represents a new beginning, a new order or creation. In the account of creation God created the earth and heavens in 6 days and rested from that labour on the 7th. So the whole creation as a universal, harmonious corporate entity had its first ‘working day’ on the 8th day! (See next post for unexpected confirmation on ‘8’!)

Also, I’d had the distinct impression of 2018 being a year of going up a level, like in spiraling up after having gone around full circle ie as in a 7-year cycle. Personally, I wanted to move into the more restful 7th year of this blog’s cycle (as in my New Year thanks) yet have a strong sense of moving into a new level – and most astonished to get an award!

A most intriguing closing thought: I’d considered re-publishing my first New Year’s blog  Points to Ponder 2011-12 on its 6th anniversary. I didn’t do so yet its subject of Biblical cycles is repeated a couple of paragraphs back – and I sure didn’t plan it that way!

Many thanks to all those who have kindly shared Liz’s call to pray for Britain.

A Prophetic Word and Call to Pray for our Nation

An unusual turn of circumstances that can only be of the Lord have drawn the following document to my attention. I invite readers’ prayerful weighing of and intercession based upon this valuable word of prophetic encouragement and direction from Liz Evans. (An account of those ‘God-incidents’ will follow.)

I’m grateful for her kind permission to publish and, as Liz writes, “The more prayer the better”. I’ve copied/pasted it direct from the email to retain her emphases (hence the Times Roman – depending on your browser! – rather than usual sans-serif typeface and minimal editing).:

Liz Evans’ Word for UK – Call for Christians to pray for the Nation 

 

Sharon Stone was chatting to Liz in the green-room at a conference and asked her, “I believe God has given you a high-level Word for the UK about castles?” Liz asked her how she knew, and Sharon replied that God had told her about it.

 

Liz went on to tell Sharon what God had been showing her:

“God is doing a work of restoration in His church at the moment. He is restoring the church to Himself in intimacy and commitment, He is restoring the church to one another in unity, and He is restoring authority to the church. 

What is authority? Authority is the spiritual right and power to enforce His Kingdom rule to the world and in our lives.

 

God gave me a picture. In this picture I was having balls thrown at my head and I was being knocked over. And then quickly the picture changed. I was learning to duck and dive, and the enemy was throwing balls at me, but none of them were hitting me because I was getting wiser. But then God showed me the 3rd picture. And in the 3rd picture I had the ball. And it was now you run. That’s where the church is in this season. This is key for where we are as a nation. Some of you have been downtrodden and things have come against you in your lives but you’ve got more mature, you’ve learned how to walk in spite of those things and in spite of the things that have been happening in our nation. But you see in this season God is giving us the ball, and He’s expecting us to do something with the authority that He is giving us.

 

Where are we as a nation, and what does He want us to do with that authority? I want to tell you a story of our nation. In the 11th century, 1066, the Normans came over and they conquered the country and they put the whole of the country under King William – William the conqueror. And in order to establish and perpetuate their rule, they embarked on a series of castle building. Please note that at this point they already had authority in the land. It was theirs. But they built these castles to do certain things. They were a place of presence in the area, they were visible, so they made a statement. And they proclaimed the rule of the King and defended the land that had been given to them.  They were places of watch, seeing what the enemy was doing, seeing what was happening; and they sorted it out, they brought safety and they enforced his rule. They enforced the rule of the kingdom.

 A place of presence. A place to bring rule and order, and enforce the rule of the King, that’s justice in the land. And a place of watch, a place of prayer. What does that sound like to you? That is our remit as the church of Christ. To be the castles in the nation. This is the function of the church. You might say well that’s a nice parallel Liz, it kind of works, but why is that pertinent to the Word for the UK at the moment, at this Kairos time in our nation? Because you know that a Kairos time is ‘now’ [emphasis RB]. It’s a window of time. It’s not a Chronos time, which is on-going.

We’re at a key time. It passes. And I need to tell you that, while I’m being calm and considered because I want to communicate this to you, inside me there is a cry and I want to be on my knees before God saying ‘O God, let us not miss this time as your people because it will not come again’. And the issue of timing is key. You know, there are many prophetic people here. Timing and application are what makes a prophecy, after interpretation, effective. We don’t just want to get the revelation; we want to bring forth the fruit that God intended.

 

Now the function of a castle took on a particular importance at a certain time in the nation. And this is where we are. When King William was getting older, castle building became a key strategy because when a monarch dies, it’s a key time, it’s ripe, for the rule of the land, of the occupying force, to be challenged. It’s a vulnerable time. It needs covering. So their castle building increased to be a presence and impose rule. You know what’s coming. Since receiving this Word I’ve been hearing from God and then prophetic voices around the kingdom and the world, in totally different streams of the church, talking about the Queen. And I’ve realised that they’re picking up on it too. One of the prophets I was talking to at lunchtime, one of the speakers in the speakers’ lounge said; not knowing what I was going to bring or even that I was going to bring this this afternoon;

Hey Liz I had a vision, I had a vision that the Queen was lying in state, she’d died, and then this man came and stood next to me and he said this: “The mantle of authority and peace that the Queen has carried since the moment she had hands laid on her as Queen, lifted when she stopped breathing.” And things are about to change. This same person had friends who lost a child. And the Queen wrote to them, and she said can I meet you in a hotel? And this isn’t a vision, this is true. And she went to them and she wept with them and she knelt with them and she prayed. And they said the presence of God that came while the Queen was praying with them was immense. You see, she’s carrying something. A mantle of authority, and peace.

 

Do you remember our 3 balls picture? I have to tell you that the authority ball is about to be passed. And this is a Kairos time in our nation. It’s a time when the rule of the occupying force of the land will be challenged. So our castle building needs to increase, to be a presence, and impose the rule of the Kingdom. And that has great benefits to us. The places of authority were also places of provision. When we bring order and peace to our nation and into our nation from heaven we benefit. Our children and our loved ones prosper. But I have to tell you that we have a window of time, a Kairos, to pray.

 

And He is restoring the authority to the church. There’s a unity about this prayer movement. As we come together and pray for our nation at this time. You see the time of the intercessors being isolated is being drawn to a close. They’re being drawn into the castle to bring power and to enhance rule. Because He is restoring the church to one another.

 

And God kept speaking to me about what was happening historically. It’s interesting to me that just after the Normans took over, when the castles were being raised up, the Magna Carta was written. When God was talking to me about this, this fell out of the drawer. And it happens to be a piece of the Magna Carta. And it says this, ‘The English church shall be free, with her rights and liberties unchanged’. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed but recently the freedoms of the church, especially around who they employ, what they believe and what they say, have been in question. Even in minute detail in believers lives. Whether you can wear a cross to work. The rights and liberties of the church were set in place in this nation. But, they need a watch.

And in the Magna Carta I noticed another sentence. ‘No free man shall be imprisoned without a proper trial by jury.’ What’s that? Justice. And that one has very real challenges in a time of terrorism and immigration. And our government needs wisdom. 

What were the castles? A place of watch. And a place of rule, a place where we pray for these things.

 

And then I had a dream, and it terrified me. It’s a dream which tells of a time yet to come. And in the dream I found myself standing on a pavement and there were people close, and then a black car came by. And there was a coffin in the car, and the car was covered in flowers. And I realised this dream looked forward to a time when the Queen’s rule was passing. In the dream it had happened, and we didn’t pray. I was terrified. I have to tell you that the authority ball will be passed. And God is raising up castles all over the land to defend the country. To establish His presence, His rule, and bring order in His Kingdom, to earth.

 

And there will be princes in this nation, men and women that God is raising up into a place of authority in government, in industry, government, education and in the church to take a place with God, Israel. He’s putting a name upon you of rule for this nation. Mordecai said to Esther ‘for such a time as this’. And there’s also a company of believers who are going to take their places on the walls behind those men, and pick up the watch for our nation. Esther prayed and fasted when she was in trouble. The Jews prayed and fasted. And this is what it says in Esther 8 v 11. The Kings granted to the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves. Of course I’m not talking about people. We battle not against people. We battle against principalities and powers of this dark age. 

 

The castles are a place of presence. What does it say in the Psalms? ‘God is present in the company of the righteous’. And you’ve been raised for such a time as this my friends. The ball will be passed. But we have a window.

 

And I have to tell you that application of Words is vital and if the soil doesn’t receive and respond to this Word there will be no fruit. And I’m not going to tell you who they are but the prophet at lunchtime told me what the fruit would be if we don’t pick up this Word and fight with it. But I’m looking here for good soil. Soil that produces a crop. 30% 60% or even 100%. Because our nation depends on it. Let me tell you, are we going to have 30% of our nation left to us, 60% of our nation left to us, or 100%? 

And this is a ‘masa’ Word; it’s an intercession Word. The Bible talks about the watchman of Israel as dogs that didn’t bark, well the watchman of the church are barking. All over this nation. And we’re beginning to hear it. And we need the watch and the prayer to come forth in response to that. Because we will never have such a strong position in this nation again if we don’t. This is vital. We’ve got to hold the land that we’ve been given. Because it’s our watch. So who’s going to carry that ball in prayer? So that the authority ball is passed well and it’s not dropped? If you’re a leader, we’re going to commission you that you go and call people together for prayer.

 

And He also told me that we were to prayer-walk and proclaim and that the authority of God comes where our feet tread. And I want you to understand your authority because He is the King and we are bringing the declaration that He is the King of all the earth. And  that He is the King of the nation for evermore. There will be no break in His Kingship. He has given it to us and we will hold it. The time of the priests of God to rule is arising because His Kingdom is coming. It’s time for the sons. And it’s time to anoint the priests. Leaders who will take up the watch of God. The Bible says that creation is longing for the sons of God to be revealed.”

Liz Evans grew up in a family of Church and Mission Leaders. An early passion for God’s written word was joined by a prophetic gifting when in her student days. Studying an Education and Biblical Studies honours degree, she was gripped with a desire to hear God’s voice. Time spent seeking Him began a lifestyle of loving His Voice and the growing intimacy which hearing Him brings.

Her love is to see people come to know and hear God, understand what they were made for and to go on that adventure. Previously, senior team leader of the Bath Prophetic School at Bath City Church she now works full-time on outreach, prayer and prophetic ministry and courses – visit Love Has A Voice.

 

‘God-incidents’ validate three prophetic visions

Today’s Keep Praying & Bless focus upon Edinburgh brings a decree and blessing so appropriate to the points I wish to convey on three visions I’ve posted this week:

‘We declare that our God is a powerful God who is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh in the last days according to His Word – We bless these islands with a fresh outpouring and awakening of God, for the Holy Spirit of Truth to come and revive the church, bringing repentance and transformation in our land. – Come Holy Spirit and move over our Nation with conviction and power.’

My favorite truth from Jesus is His explanation in John 3 to His secret disciple Nicodemus of how He and we follow Holy Spirit’s leading: “The wind blows wherever it pleases…So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” 

He blew strongly last Monday morning!

Once again showered with several pieces of an Invisible Jigsaw, my eyes opened to see so many of these ‘God-incidents’ – it’s been some time since I was so blessed.

Blogging ideas got blown away! After the long weekend I intended continuing on the USA-Jerusalem theme under title, ‘World’s woes caused by its leaders’ opening with Genesis 12:1 (blessing/cursing of Israel).

After noting William Koenig’s weekend update ‘Jerusalem Countdown’, as well as Gavin Ashenden’s demand that Archbishop Welby must apologise or resign because of his latest appalling nonsense, I was set to steam away – and planning to comment once again but more fully on a series of dubious articles run in Prophecy Today UK.

So after Monday’s usual domestic tasks, I was primed and pumped along those lines.

But it all got blown out of the window – and I’d spotted a hole caused by hailstone in the conservatory’s glazed roof that needed urgent attention!  Yet first to catch up and deal with email on return to my pc – but then I saw the first jigsaw piece and another, and in between fixing the hole in the roof, I got another as I perceived the ‘God-incidents’ of divinely directed data!!  I offer them for your consideration and weighing in sequence of my ‘perceptions’:

1st PIECE

This is the vision of Holy Spirit at heaven’s door in The Revelation of The Christ and His Kingdom, as revealed to Simon Braker and which I quickly reposted on Monday. I was struck by his description of those who don’t follow His directions or would argue with others, and especially of those in the pigpen with mud on their eyes – it perfectly describes the blindness and mud-slinging displayed in parts of that series of debatable articles. (They denigrate leadership at Toronto Airport Church Fellowship for events known as the ‘Toronto Blessing’ and attempts to connect it, if not lay the blame upon it, for many churches moving away from the authority of scripture.)

Only when re-posting did I note this ‘Revelation’ is dated Thursday 14th December, a week ago today.

2nd PIECE 

A week earlier (Wed 6th Dec), I’d seen ‘Blessing the Church? VI’, about the ‘Toronto Blessing’ (better known as an outpouring of Father’s Love) featured on Prophecy Today UK. That move of God  perplexed many because of its unusual manifestations of holy and unclean spirits, as is well-known in power encounters (eg. Mark 1:21-27 – Jesus’ first visit to a synagogue after His baptism in the Holy Spirit).

In my opinion and experience, this regurgitated missive (1995 ‘updated’ 2017) decrying Toronto utterly misrepresents what the Lord has been doing. So, in view of a busy blogging week I left a very brief comment :

‘…had you investigated the FRUIT you’d find Toronto REALLY does bless believers: eg. hundreds of thousands miraculous healings and rescues from bondage in Mozambique (mosques becoming churches and Muslim provinces turning to Christ) as well as the underground crusades in Pakistan, the repentance revival at Pensacola/Brownsville that brought masses to Christ – not to mention having been a 24/7 carer for my wife for only 6 months (instead of the subsequent 10 years!!) because she was dramatically healed after having been officially registered as permanently disabled, plus 5 improvements after subsequent recurrence!…’

3rd PIECE

My remarks generated a couple of queries, including a rebuttal from someone who,  like me, had been active in satan’s camp,  some of which I responded to in more depth the following week and to the latter person on Thursday 14th December.

As the article’s author didn’t get his facts right on the beginning of the ‘Blessing’, I recommended the balanced investigation with interviews in The Story of Toronto by our Bibliophile friend John Peters, who’d been in the groups we’d been to Toronto with 10-15 years ago. He’s biographer of The Great Revivalists.

The articles’ antagonism and judgementalism suggests their author is operating in an ungodly spirit and isn’t an obedient disciple of the Lord (I wondered if he may be excluded from entrance to heaven). Therefore, over the weekend I revisited John’s book and prepared to submit more facts to that series of ‘teaching’ articles. Yet it may be wasted time; as Jesus warned us not to ‘cast pearls…’  But my action was quashed because my speculation was answered in that first jigsaw piece, and even more specifically in the…

4th PIECE

This is another Monday morning email from UK Prophetic Words of a report issued Thursday 14th December entitled Those who take offence will not partake in the next move of God’s Spirit. I saw only that title and opening paragraphs. It’s an arrow hitting the bull’s eye of that partisan prophecy’ piece and so I emailed Suzanne Payne right away for information on its author Brett Dewey before my re-posting it. I didn’t have time to read until perusing a hard-copy over lunch, before which I had a reply from Sue as the…

5th PIECE

For a mistaken reason Sue drew my attention to the penultimate paragraph of Brett’s piece and which I hadn’t yet read: 

‘Last of all I will record the vision I seen in the December One Voice prayer meeting in our Church – During worship I was focusing on the Lord and watching for his Spirit – I seen myself in what was the top floor of an office building – the building was like one of the office buildings I was working in during security work – but it wasn’t – the building also looked like the building I was at for Bible college but it wasn’t – I was sitting in a chair looking up with my eyes closed but could see all that was in the room.’

6th PIECE

Those words in Sue’s reply sent me back six years to a very vivid visionary dream about the Kingdom of God and which confirmed what Bill Johnson, a close associate of the Toronto leaders, had prophesied that day during the first Revival Alliance Gathering in September 2011 being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK (Father Let Your Kingdom Come and Update in previous post refers.) I replied that perhaps Brett should return to the vision and open his eyes to look outside the windows! 

7th PIECE

But in fact he’d already done something similar! Over lunch I read his whole piece, which closes with the vision received this month. There, I found that what Sue quoted is followed by:

Suddenly the whole roof lifted up off the floor and there were just open heavens – I had the feeling the Lord was removing restrictions – possibly the restrictions of man – we have perhaps put limitations on God – He removed the roof: there was no limit now – all restrictions man made or otherwise being removed in Jesus name.’ !!  W-O-W!  DOUBLE WOW!!

8th PIECE

Brett’s report opens with a dream in October featuring an incoming huge wave of God’s Holy Spirit but he notices someone attempting to prophesy by means of an unclean spirit – the Spirit of Offence. He hears the Lord instruct him on its meaning and realises the person prophesying wasn’t of God, yet presents herself as a prophet and who is a Christian. Unfortunately and sadly,  it speaks to me of the spirit behind those articles on a Christian prophecy website,  one I’d highly recommended to readers upon its launch!

Of particular importance serving as a lesson for me is what Brett learned at the Fire conference about the need to check ourselves and repent of any taking offence. I chose, therefore, to forget about taking that ‘Blessing’ issue any further.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

In closing, it’s worth reminding ourselves of Brett’s comments on such issues:

The Lord said that there would be many who would be offended because of Him. I felt a peace and a witness that what He was going to do in the next wave of glory would be offensive to many – especially people that had no room for GOD’S sovereignty in their mindsets…

‘I also believe the Lord encourages us not to be offended if other churches despise you or are offended, because you let God’s work be done and His Spirit manifest in all his Glory in the midst of your meetings. Hold fast to what is true. This is what the next wave will bring.’

Selah!

Praise and thank you Lord for such blessing and to everyone in this ‘invisible jigsaw’ for blessing and teaching me so much more than I knew before the start of this week.

May everyone reading this account be thoroughly blessed with fresh insights into our relationship with Jesus Christ and our heavenly Father’s love.

The Fear of the Lord #3 (with GPS#9) – Holiness and purity of God

In referring a week ago today (4th December) to my foretaste of the Lord’s return plus the Lord’s wanting us to ask for “the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God”, I’m very concerned for its falling not only upon our fellow citizens but also and foremost upon all clergy and laity in every part of the Church. I’d noticed this topic started in Scotland and has been heard elsewhere in the UK (see #1 and #2) but had already been received on the other side of the world – in Australia!

We thus have another example of the Lord’s GPS in action (Global Prophecy Signals). So let’s read and weigh two more words on the fear of the Lord, the first by courtesy of UK Prophetic Words.:

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ABOUT TO BLOW VIOLENTLY THROUGH OUR CHURCHES

‘Last night (3rd Dec) driving home the Holy Spirit whispered the word “Hurricane” to me.

‘I felt that the Holy Spirit is about to blow violently through our churches. Anything that is not firmly anchored down will be blown away – I feel that we about to see a mighty and potentially frightening move of God’s spirit that is going to purge everything that is not anchored in him.

‘I feel this is to prepare the church ready for the following move of God where God manifests His glory in a more intense and astonishing way that we have ever experienced.

‘This mighty blowing of His spirit is an act of loving kindness. Holiness and purity will be essential to host the next level of glory that God wants to pour out on His bride. However, Sin and compromise cannot exist in the full glory of God. Ananias and Sapphira found this out to their peril –God in His love wants us to avoid the consequences they experienced.’

Eddie Liley 4th December 2017

The next day in Queensland, Lana Vawser published an extensive message she’d been hearing for a few months, which includes this of direct relevance to our theme:

THE FEAR OF GOD

‘The Lord has been speaking to me so much about the fear of God being restored to the Church beginning in greater ways in 2018. The Lord showed me this happening through signs and wonders, huge amazing demonstrations of His power and the UNEXPECTED ways of God.

‘The Lord is about to BLOW YOUR MIND in 2018! He is going to do things you have never imagined. You are going to see Him move in nations in amazing ways.

‘You will see Him use the FOOLISH things of the world to shame the wise.

“But God chose them who the world considers foolish to shame those who think they are wise, and God chose the puny and powerless to shame the high and mighty. He chose the lowly, the laughable in the world’s eyes – nobodies – so that He would shame the somebodies. For He chose what is regarded as insignificant in order to supersede what is regarded as prominent, so that there would be no place for prideful boasting in God’s presence.” – 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 – The Passion Translation

‘In 2018 there will be greater demonstrations of how the Lord uses the things the world considers foolish, the unexpected things, the lowly to display His power, His Glory and restore the fear and awe of God to the Church and the world.’

This is part of an extensive message Lana published for 2018 on 3rd December which, as with all material she shares, is worthy of study and weighing and will appear in this blog’s next post.

Nelson Walters: How to prepare for Jesus’ return

So well-timed surely the Lord is in Nelson’s informative teaching, parts of which serve as a very suitable follow-up to recent posts (eg. today’s Lion Bite: “I have overcome the world and chaos – so watch!” and my Personal Foretaste of Jesus’ Return, as well the deception in church against which we’ve signed a Petition). Thank you Nelson.

The Olivet Discourse and the Letters to the Seven Churches are a manual on how to prepare for Jesus’s return. What the Pretrib. Teachers Say “If the church was going to face the Antichrist, Jesus would have given us specific instructions on how to prepare. But the Bible contains nothing on how to prepare to…

Ezekiel’s vision of The Almighty’s flame-like glory

It was an immense delight soon after waking on this the last day of November 2017 that its meditation in Sanctuary returns to the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel. Over the past four weeks David Strutt shared many gems from the OT prophets as a preparation for next month’s Advent season. It was instructive to dip into the relevant scriptures whenever possible, but I focused especially on those from Ezekiel and upon his life after receiving his Call 2,600 years ago!

After having blogged or read posts and comments on visions of holy fire, my eyes almost popped out upon reading…

Day 335 – November 30th

‘We cannot leave Ezekiel without going back to the beginning, to meditate a while on the vision that first put fire and fear and awe-struck love of God into his heart, soul and mind. He was by the River Chebar [exiled with the Hebrews in Chaldea/Babylonia] when a vision of heaven began. He saw things indescribable that are difficult to fully understand although our spirits rise with his as we hear of the beauty of the angelic forces and the servant beings. But there comes a point when even those pale into insignificance. [Am using New King James Version of Ezekiel 1:25-28 because it conveys a slightly fuller description than the New American Standard Bible.]:

‘A voice came from above the firmament that (was) over their heads; whenever they stood they let down their wings.

‘And above the firmament over their heads (was) the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne (was) a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.

‘Also from the appearance of his waist and upward I saw, as it were, the colour of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

‘Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so (was) the appearance of the brightness all around it. This (was) the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.’

Selah!

This is where language fails to convey and do justice to novel experience. It was hard for Ezekiel to describe this staggering vision, as we may gather from his repetitions of ‘as it were’, ‘the appearance of’ and ‘the likeness of’.  In other words, we should infer that his description is not to be regarded as being totally definitive of the Almighty.

The important lesson for the prophet-in-training was that God was present in Babylonia as well in Jerusalem.

It’s particularly noteworthy from the vision that the throne above the ‘heavens’ has an occupant described as being human-like but composed of, as well as being obscured by, the brilliance of fire.

Note also Hebrews 12: after stating in verse 26 that God has promised “Yet once more I shall shake not only the earth, but also heaven’ (per Haggai 2:6) and explaining its meaning, the chapter closes with its reason:  For our God is a consuming fire’.

Vision of eagle – role of ‘air supremacy’ in the harvest of souls

Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: courtesy http://www.propheticartists.com

A ‘God-incidence’ struck last Thursday in connection with Dr Sharon Stone’s November mentoring day, and with what two attendees of that meeting were writing about on the same day last week > the necessity of gaining ‘air supremacy’!

Having arrived from Shaftesbury with a couple of friends on this month’s first Saturday, Simon Baddeley and I greeted one other in Caffe Nero over coffees bought en-route to  the meeting. There, they sat in the row behind me and he and I took extra special note of what Sharon’s associate was teaching on how to bring God’s Kingdom into secular society. We never spoke about it. And neither of us would have prophesied, let alone guessed, that we’d both write about a special aspect of it on the very same day!!

So on the 9th I blogged about Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, referred to America’s involvement and closed by citing how a prophet’s example of changing the spiritual atmosphere to release the Kingdom of God may affect international diplomacy. (See ‘Kingdom Presence & Prophecy’ section in Paws 4 Thought: Kingdom-related Events Since Lightning Strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque.)  After telling how personal envoys of Donald Trump received prophetic words the speaker likened intercessory prayer and prophecy to the military strategy of ‘air supremacy’.

On the 9th Simon wrote as follows under this published heading:

‘AS YOU GAIN AIR SUPREMACY YOU WILL SEE THE HARVEST YOU HAVE LONGED FOR’

‘I have had this word for a couple of weeks but I heard (the speaker) use the same phrase that I’d heard the Lord say, which has prompted me to release the word.:

27 October 2017:
‘I heard the sound of wings beating; they are huge wings and I can feel the strength that is being exerted as they are causing a large eagle to take off from the ground. As it rose up I saw that there were scars on its ankles where it had been shackled.

‘I heard the Lord saying, “I am freeing my prophetic voices” and then heard him say,

“As you gain air supremacy you will see the harvest that you have longed for, for as you win the battle in the air you will win the battle on the ground. You have been wondering why the harvest hasn’t come in but it has been because you have not won the battle in the air; when this battle is won you will see harvest you long for.”

Simon Baddeley, 9th November 2017

Simon is on the leadership team at Father’s House Shaftesbury and associated with Dr Sharon Stone at Christian International Europe, Windsor, and a few years ago gave me an accurate prophetic word.

The symbolism of the eagle is especially significant in relation to prophecy. It featured prominently in my first encounter with it in church circles, as told in Why Write/blog? and as my cyber-friend and blogger Tony Puccio in Tucson, Arizona, can attest too. Hence, a copy of the above picture by John Mark Long is hanging in our lounge.
