Thursday 19th’s prophetical musing found fulfilled Friday 20th April

Having prepared materials for the blog introducing the especial significance of the 3rd week of April, then being surprised by the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, I went on to finish publishing. Only then did I begin mulling over everything that’s going on in this ‘Month of Infamy’, as Eric Hadik regards April with its regular crisis days of 19th and 20th April.

So weird that Israel has Memorial Day and Independence Day on those two dates!

In particular last Thursday, 19th April, I mused over the purported anti-chemical attacks in Syria as cloaking Iranian activities to prepare for their eventual assault upon Israel,  and wondered if they may mount some sort of attack during the holiday celebrations. Those who’ve been following the news will be aware of America’s intention to revise the international ‘Nuclear Deal’ with Iran.

Then I chuckled on recalling the Lord’s promises to protect Israel and that Iran may well come a ‘cropper’ – then this popped into mind > the Lord could arrange for a huge hole to open up and swallow their nuclear weapons facilities!

On catching up with overnight news on Friday morning, 20th April, my jaw dropped on seeing this headline on Koenig’s World Watch Daily home page:

‘Iran quake, at least 5.5 in magnitude, strikes near nuclear power plant’

It was followed by the map shown published the previous day in The Times of Israel (click/tap image for link, opens in same window):

For more details read USGS’ earthquake report.

Therefore, we could reasonably consider this may be a direct warning to Iran that the same, or bigger, can so easily happen to its nuclear program at any time!

Moreover, its occurring on the the year’s cyclically critical date of 19-20 April is surely no coincidence!

Also, highly ‘God-incidental that I just ‘happened’ to have blogged in depth on this topic – is it not?

LOL – what incredible timing when writing in connection with Time!!

Amazing geometrical symmetry of Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1

Introduction

Eighteen months ago I introduced readers to an astonishing mathematical revelation buried within the very first verse of the holy Bible and that of the Gospel according to John. Without the burden of numerical details I showed extracts from Jonathan R Hill’s Unlocking the Sign Miracles of Johnsummarising how the well-known mathematical constants of ‘pi’ and exponential ‘e’ are found. Also, I told of a most surprising ‘coincidence’ when reading that author’s explanation of those constants as featuring not only in the Bible but also in a well-known equation known as the Euler identity or formula, and receiving a mathematician’s blog on the equation’s pure, breathtaking mathematical beauty!

Recap
  • Hill’s book refers to the ‘Consummation of the Age’ (and on its ‘mathematical foundation’), typologies, numerical aspects of Hebrew and Greek alphabets and calculations of time periods, ‘end-time’ prophetical significance of the miracles.
  • He uses the ancient practice of substituting letters of ancient alphabets with their  standard designated and ordinal (sequential) values ( as shown below )
  • Typology & Numerology subhead (p 18) ‘…fundamental doctrine is never to be derived from types or numbers; they should only be used to illustrate and illuminate existing meaning of the surface text. No new teaching should be asserted based on numbers or types alone. (emphasis mine)
  • (p 20) ‘God does not stop with types, as each letter of the two original languages of the Bible, Hebrew for the Old Testament and Greek for the New Testament, encapsulates a numerical value. Words and collections of sequential words have a mathematical identity which, therefore, extends the surface narrative. Any agreement between this underlying numerical pattern and the surface meaning or doctrine, affixes considerable authenticity to the textOnly a personal, supernatural God could inject such intrinsic connectivity within a book written in two languages with different alphabets, by multiple authors and across two millennia‘ (emphases mine).
  • ‘The existence of a relationship between the surface meaning of the text, the type and the underlying mathematical value has long been known in Jewish Rabbinic tradition’ – page 160 Wiki Pardes (Jewish Exegesis).

Paws-4-thought: “This is My territory, and Mine alone,” says The Lion of Judah

[GPS #14 A fortnight ago this morning I was astonished at what was brought from the Lord during the ministry team’s prayers at Acorn Christian Healing Foundation – but my surprise stopped me taking note of its content! Therefore, I asked our friend ‘V.J.’ for the details and am grateful for her kind permission to publish this account:

‘During the time of praise, with one or two people bringing gentle thoughts of encouragement, I had an overwhelming sense that, spiritually, we were there to be about the Lord’s business in strength – and there was a real sense of frustration.

‘Then came a picture of a huge lion, which I felt was The Lion of Judah. The first impression was the huge head and tossing mane, with the mouth twisting. The lion then reared up and placed his two front huge paws onto a flat sloping rock. The words I sensed were,

“This is MY territory, and Mine alone. I have equipped you with everything you need to go and accomplish work for my Kingdom. Go out and do it, don’t delay!”

‘I sensed that it was powerful and there was a hint of admonishment involved; there was no sense of meekness about it. The Lord was also saying,

“I Am the Rock upon which you stand.”

‘Since subsequent events have unfolded, I have pondered it further and felt it could relate to those.

‘After the service the minister mentioned the picture to me, saying, “So the picture you had was Jesus saying, ‘Don’t mess with Me/My work’?”. I replied, “Yes, that’s more or less it.”

Footnote: As soon as ‘V.J.’ started describing The Lion of Judah and her impressions, I thought she may have read and been inspired by what I’d published less than two hours earlier; ie, its picture in particular. But not so!

That blog was on the Vision of Violent Spiritual Battle for Britain seen by Veronika West in which she hears, “Daughter of man, fear not, see, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed.”  As the original has no accompanying illustration I’d dug into my library for a suitable image, as shown above. However, ‘V.J.’ was not aware of this until we discussed it this week!! 

Also, note how well this image matches her description of the placement of The Lion’s front paws!!  LOL – truly, a ‘Paws-4-Thought’ moment!

Therefore, what ‘V.J.’ brought is clearly a stand-alone word from the Lord, yet confirms what others are hearing on God’s Global Prophecy Signalling system. Also, it reinforces the scrolling words Nina saw at the start of Trooping The Colour 2016; ‘This is MY country!’

[With gratitude to the unknown creator of this splendid picture.]

Three pertinent prophetic words relating to recent posts

I’d like to draw readers’ considered attention to three words published by Lana Vawser within the past week because they’re pertinent to what I’ve sensed and noticed in my personal life since the New Year, as well as to recent blogs. One of hers is especially encouraging in connection with prayer ministry – click linked-titles to read:

8 March – Don’t Be Discouraged by the Attack on Your Inheritance…

9 March – I Am Healing the Traumas of Past Seasons (lifting the ‘cloak’ of trauma)

12 March – Prophets of His Heart, There Are More With You Than Against You! Keep Decreeing. A Major Increase of Breaker Anointing is Being Released…

The second brought confirmation of a deep work the Lord did during last week when a ministering couple chose not to delay help by usual counselling procedure but to work with the Holy Spirit instead.

That word’s importance is enhanced by the ‘God-incidental’ fact that I happened to be online Saturday morning catching up on emails to reduce Monday morning’s quantity in view of our plans to start house maintenance/re-decorating that day.

Not having time to read Lana’s email of Friday, but noticing its pertinence, I printed a hard-copy for perusal at leisure – and very soon after having done that in came an email from Leisa Ebere with the ‘Cave Dwellers Arise Prophecy’, which is a shorter version of Lana’s more in-depth word.

May the Lord be with you as you weigh and pray over the above words in preparation for a deeper follow-up to the last one.

Early morn’ musing on Jesus’ promise of our doing what He did

Not long after 6 o’clock a gate-shaped line of light started glowing around our bedroom curtains. Awake well before the alarm-clock had woken up I ‘said in my head’, “Morning Lord.”  Thursdays being a full-on blog-day, my mind’s usually ‘motoring’ away but, as I’d downloaded yesterday what had been cruising around my neural network since Sunday it seemed today’s going to be free-and-easy.  I could blog on something buried at the back of my mind since answering comments on the ministry of Rolland and Heidi Baker. And so I gave the day to the Lord… [LOL, several time-consuming tasks were to crop up!]

Lolling on my back and enjoying our cat’s furry back, I found my thoughts went back 50 or more years to a verse of scripture – one that’s the justification for my youthful disdain of churches and religious beliefs – not only of my encounters with inter-denominational  animosity, but also of believers failure to follow Jesus’ own life and instructions! (See my testimony.)

A scripture? One against church? Surely not, you say. The NIV version of the verse in question reads,

“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing – he will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father…” (John 14:12-13)

I’d never heard of such things being done by Christians in 1950’s and 1960’s – surely my devout mother would have known and talked about them!

And so the Lord reminded me of the path I’d taken, from which He rescued me decades later and brought me into the Kingdom; and then shown me that a number of churches  were, in fact, turning to His Way of Working as a result of an immense outpouring of the Holy Spirit. He started by introducing believers globally to the reality and meaning of our heavenly Father’s love in 1994 and has since continued to do so. And so I recalled the various ministries arising from that momentous event and my encounters therein.

<<<A_L_A_R_M >>> Get up, make two cuppa tea and cereal, over which I read aloud the ‘reflection’ for today from one of our ministers. It comes as no  surprise to discover the Lord has already lodged in my head what He wants to show me.:

The opening words for ‘Day 68 – March 8th’ in David Strutt’s Sanctuary…Moments in His Presence read:

‘Truly, truly I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.  Whatever you ask in My name….’ !!!!!!!

I really couldn’t expect anything less; now could I?

David reminds us: Jesus often teaches us to ask and ask, to keep asking through the relationship we have with Him and His Father. In fact, before the above verse He divulges that They are in one another and later continues with in-depth instruction in that upper room on Their other partner, The Holy Spirit – and how to live and abide in The Three of Them.:

“Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves Me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him…If anyone loves me he will obey my teaching. my Father will love him and we will come and make our home in him.” (John 14: 21 & 23)

As David puts it: ‘He says that we are to abide in Him…The ultimate mutual abiding community!’  I recall 12th February’s evening prayer meeting where David read from the day’s devotional on Heidi’s facebook entitled Reckless Devotion, Day 43 – Humble.

I thought he’d said, “Wreck-less” because she often describes her encountering Jesus as His leaving her “wrecked” and “undone” by His love and presence. Hence, she’s often unable to stand and has to kneel, sit or lie down in conferences. ‘Practising the Presence’ leaves her in a non-intellectual mode of communication that may strike those who haven’t yet been baptised in the Holy Spirit as being rather silly.

It was, therefore, a very pleasant surprise to learn that, like our Vicar, David is familiar with the Bakers’ ministry.

After we’d been to Toronto, where I had an open vision of the effects of their ministry upon my first seeing Heidi 15 years ago, we found it very hard being in churches that were closed to the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, it was a terrific surprise upon visiting this Anglican church two years ago to get three confirmations, one from David, immediately upon our arrival of our being in the right place – and another one months later upon learning the Vicar has connections with Bath, Bethel and Toronto!

In the prayer meeting Dave told us about one of the worship sessions at last year’s New Wine event. The band was introducing new songs, which didn’t help the congregation get into normal worship. But then came time for the preacher: Heidi entered singing in tongues and the presence of the Holy Spirit fell in power!!

Like to know why and how that happens? Then listen to Heidi’s explanation of getting close to the Lord and knowing His mind:

“So it’s obedience and love; and low and slow – and it’s all together: it’s awesome!”

Footnote: for details of my open vision see A Third Great Awakening?  Rolland Baker told me Iris’ Director Surpresa Sithole saw the same at the start of his ministry; and it relates to reactions at highest levels of the Islamic world (see Not Many People Know).

GPS #13: Bible ‘Blueprint’ of four US leaders; Elisha anointing on Billy Graham’s passing; Alfred the Great (again!)

Let me run seemingly different yet closely timed events past you for consideration. They feature two pairs of ‘signals’ – one from USA (North Carolina & Alabama) and one from the UK (Bath & Liphook) – about three of the Lord’s ‘invisible jigsaw’ pieces.

My ears pricked up with surprise during the first when it connected with the prophetic dream in which Lana Vawser decreed a double-portion of the Elisha anointing being released upon Billy Graham’s going ‘home’ to be with the Lord.

Also, this first event or ‘piece’, repeated the well-known repentance scripture quoted in GPS#11 part 1: influx of calls to intercede for Britain.

It also made me wonder if recent reiteration of the significance of King Alfred the Great laying the Biblical foundations for a Christian nation of Great Britain has any bearing in this new data-set.

Here’s what happened:

1. A BIBLE BLUEPRINT

On Sunday afternoon we went online for Church of His Presence morning service (in Alabama) to see guest preacher Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn. He delivered a rapid and impassioned presentation of a new paradigm for understanding End-time events. This develops upon his profound insights logged in The Harbinger (published within weeks of my starting this blog).

Let’s go to the start of his fifty minutes message in this video (from 1hr12min):

Jonathan explains this new paradigm is a ‘Bible Blueprint’, by which not only the nature of major events but also their timings throughout the Clinton-Obama era closely align with those recorded in the OT’s Books of the Kings. The common denominator is Israel and America’s rejection of God by their ancient kings, especially Ahab, Jehoram and queen Jezebel, and by modern presidential persons!

ALL a very thought-provoking thesis that brings fresh understanding, especially of the deep similarities between king Jehu and Donald Trump and of their actions against both ancient and modern protagonists. It is well-worth watching.

One of the most severe similarities between then and now – unknown in modern times – is witches’ mass gatherings to curse America’s President!!  So he must be doing the right thing by God!

According to Jonathan’s thesis, the ‘paradigm’ (God’s sovereign will) and ‘harbinger’ (of judgement) timelines are merging and we’re being given a window in which to reform. So most importantly for us, what does this Bible Blueprint, or ‘paradigm’, say about our future – it brings both a warning and a key!  Jonathan stresses (from 1:43:30 – emphasis added),

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn“A window to repent – a window to speak the Word of God – a window for Revival – is exactly where we are now. Jehu, or Donald Trump, is not the answer, but he was used to open a window. There’s been a political change but there’s not yet been a cultural change and a spiritual change. No answer can be found in Washington or in Hollywood, but only in Revival, only in Revival…

“The Word of God tells us, ‘If My people who are called by My Name, will humble THEMselves, turn from their wicked ways…’ (2Chron 7:14-15 – per GPS#11 Part 1)

“The keys are there – ‘MY people’ – ‘IF’ – so we must pray like never before…and it’s time to start living in Revival because it will then begin…

(From 1:47:00) “There’s a paradigm inside the paradigm, a paradigm for the people of God – where we’re given the keys in how to prevail and overcome – the paradigm, ‘For such a time as this’ so you need to know the times so you can fulfill your Calling in these times...

“I can say this much: in the days when Biblical values and righteousness rule over a culture, the people of God have a ruling paradigm in the King David paradigm – but in the days when Biblical values and righteousness NO LONGER rule the culture – in the days when anti-Biblical values rule the culture, the days of an Ahab, a Jezebel, the people of God have a different paradigm – they have the Elisha paradigm: those days are NOW!

“Those days are now and this is our paradigm: Elisha was not the status quo, he was a radical, he was revolutionary – and that’s what we’re to become: not status quo but to become radical, to become revolutionary – these are the days when we must become a revolutionary people living with a revolutionary power, a revolutionary outlook, a revolutionary life!”

“Some of you may be afraid of the End-times – don’t be, because that’s where God put you!…”

2. THE ELISHA ANOINTING & BILLY GRAHAM’S PASSING

Jonathan’s is a most stirring message. His conclusion reminds me of what Australian Lana brought about the Lord’s action plan of pouring out a double-portion of the Elisha anointing after bringing Billy Graham to his heavenly home.

THEN this question came ‘out of the blue’ – a ‘jigsaw piece’?  As that relates to the USA, then could the groundwork laid by Alfred the Great be a ‘blueprint’ for Britain?  What a peculiar, but perhaps not preposterous, idea!

So it would seem both ‘pieces’ fit together : one, Jonathan’s message; the other of Billy Graham’s passing, and whose remarkable funeral we’d watched by live broadcast on Friday and noted that POTUS Trump and VP Pence with wives seated on the front row – plus Trump’s keen attentiveness to Billy’s adult offspring’s testimonies, especially Franklin’s address – which closed with an altar call.  It’s noteworthy that storm winds in the D.C. area almost prevented flights from the capital, whereas it was sunny and mild for the funeral in Charlotte, North Carolina!

Nina and I chatted about it with friends over coffee at church on Sunday. The husband reads this blog and remarked about the prophecies relating to Billy’s passing. We said we’d seen the funeral, that ‘Trump & Veep’ were attentive attendees and that Franklin invited those who don’t know Jesus to come to him – and upon so saying, two of us got hit by Holy Spirit: Nina got the usual ‘buzz’, needing her to hold a table to stop her falling; our friend, his usual ‘fuzz’ over head (like shivers or goose-bumps) in recognition that something’s most definitely of the Lord.

I chuckled because he’d already asked about the backgrounds of those whose material I quote, and on testing their prophecies. So we laughed and agreed what he was getting was a true test for those we’d just been talking about 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

3. KING ALFRED THE GREAT

Now, I take you from Sunday morning in Liphook to late afternoon at home (but 10am in Alabama):

As if in anticipation of my thoughts whilst watching Jonathan Cahn about King Alfred, a third ‘piece’ arrived by email during the service and awaited slotting into place within the ‘invisible jigsaw puzzle’.

Unable to enter a comment on the blog, Isabel writes from Bath city,

‘I was very interested to read the articles on Alfred the Great.  It reminded me to check my dream journal. I found an entry for 5th March last year, almost a year to date, concerning Donald Trump and Alfred the Great. Unfortunately I was unable to recall the detail of the dream, except that I heard a voice in the dream calling out “Alfred’s Law” over and over again. I knew nothing about Alfred the Great until I researched his heavenly visions to save Britain and his book of Law or the ‘judgement book’. Thank you for publishing these posts.’

Isabel’ s remark conjoining Trump and our Saxon king, and on the latter’s visions and book, mirrors Jonathan’s references and my musings. So a great big thank you goes to the Lord and to Isabel for confirming them – whatever next?

One further, fascinating ‘God-incidental’ point about Alfred – my photo is of the statue erected outside Winchester City council offices in Hampshire, the capital of Wessex and Saxon England – the recent prophetic word from across ‘the Pond’ relating to kingdom rulership (Moving From The Sword to The Sceptre) comes from Wanda Alger living in Winchester, Virginia, – out of all places in the United States!

Bring it on Lord…!!

Footnote: this post may not be a totally new, distinct instance of God’s Global Prophecy Signalling system as it relates on a couple of points to the much broader #12, but I’ve numbered it ‘#13′.  As both posts aren’t wholly independent let’s use bakers’ numbering and call them a ‘Barker’s Dozen’! 
LOL! – let’s be even more unusual, for now I grasp what an old personal prophetic picture may mean: a brother at the first class I attended under Revd Dr Sharon Stone gave me a peculiar picture of a conveyor belt with dozens of loaves on it – I was clueless about its meaning and don’t recall his comments.  Years later a friend gave us her home-baking machine. I tried it and have baked bread ever since and so presumed that’s what the prophecy’s about. But in using that baking term I now perceive it may mean the foreseen loaves I’m making and baking are the many blogs I post and which can feed others… So I trust you’re now well-fed 🙂

GPS #12, King Alfred, a ‘Spiritual Magna Carta’ for Britain – and for the world!

AND NOW, my reader, may you be thoroughly blessed with what you’re about to read. May it resonate within your spirit when you understand how very timely what two sisters in the Lord on opposite sides of the Atlantic posted as coming from Him, whilst this post  was being drafted and edited in tandem by myself and Suzanne Ferrett over the course of the past week.

It’s like four ‘listening posts’ (Veronika in N. Ireland, Wanda in USA, Suzanne in Berks and me in East Hants) tuning into the same frequency of God’s GPS, or ‘global prophecy signals’! [PS. particularly pertinent that Wanda lives in Winchester, Virginia – named after our county city of Hampshire, Alfred the Great’s capital of ancient Wessex and of Saxon England.]

Part 3 of GPS#11 refers to my chat with Suzanne at February’s mentoring day. She told me about her watchman ministry based upon a spiritual version of the Magna Carta.

Upon writing that post, I began to understand how it not only relates directly to Liz Evan’s prophetic word on castles re-published after New Year, but also to my researches twenty years ago on the history of Reading Abbey when I learned about King Alfred’s battles against the Danes in the Thames Valley, and of his establishing Christian government in Saxon England.

Suzanne sent me a video clip of her talking about  the Great Charter’s origin lying centuries earlier in King Alfred’s Code of Law. She refers to his saying that, when building a kingdom, he’d build it upon Christian law, the Kingdom of God and the holy scriptures. The Cambridge Historical Encyclopedia of Gt Britain and Ireland reads (page 57):

‘The biographer of Alfred (871-899), the greatest of all Anglo-Saxon kings, tells us Alfred divided his court into three groups (each attending court by rota…) Since the  arrangement was lifted straight from King Solomon (3 Kings 5:13-14) it is also a nice example of how the Bible and Christianity provided an ideological framework for the development of the English state…Alfred drew a close parallel between himself and Moses in issuing his Laws.’

Therefore, I was delighted to receive an email from Helen H, living in Bath area, telling about her response to my remarks in GPS#11 part 3:

“Last year or earlier, can’t recall to be honest…I felt God was directing me to king Alfred and especially his shield. I researched him and it. I was struck by his stand against the Vikings and his strategy of warfare that saved this nation. I, as have many others, have been praying for Brexit  and for our nation, but I’ve never heard anyone else or seen anyone with a God-given direction to king Alfred.”

What I don’t divulge in that blog, is that I saw the relevance of what Dr Sharon Stone had brought a few hours earlier, on the new empowerment of having ‘teeth of a threshing-sledge’, as also applying to intercessors who, like Suzanne, use the principles of decrees and declarations (see this blog’s Introduction to Prophecy).

It was my firm intention to blog about her work the week after our conversation, but the impact of that day’s teaching in confirming what I’d discerned for this blog at the New Year led to my focusing upon its goal of ‘Looking for signs of Jesus return’. Hence, the several posts about ‘watching’ and ‘signs’ in the first week of February, and setting up as main-menu hubs – notwithstanding the incoming ‘GPS’!!  Then, Suzanne emailed that she would be talking on ‘Watching’ that very weekend at the Lenchwood Christian Centre… ‘wotta God-incidence’!!

Suzanne’s ministry is ‘multi-faceted, teaching and equipping the church, bringing it into the new, training on how to use authority in prayer and being watchmen, thereby mixing the prophetic and intercessory’.  She has long-standing friendships with Dr Sharon and with Rachel Hickson – see her remarkable Heartcry For Change.

As a result of a strong dream from God, Rachel established the M25 PrayerNet in 1997, of which Suzanne was a sector leader as well as running a city and county-wide prayer network in Hertfordshire for 12 years. In 2008, she and husband Frank moved to Worcestershire and headed up ministry at the Lenchwood Christian Centre, where she continues to run seminars and ministry events, and pastored a local church whilst there.

In her updated introduction to ‘A Spiritual Magna Carta’ below, Suzanne refers to a God-incidental confirmation; ie. yet another ‘GPS’,  or even a ‘Bridge o’er the Pond’..:

A PASSION FOR GREAT BRITAIN

Passion for the Nation seeks to communicate and take hold of what I believe is a Kingdom opportunity, an appointed time, to see all that God desires released into our land and to transform our nation for the next season.

One aspect of implementing that vision is to release the sound of the Word of God as Declarations and Decrees over the nation every week, that have the power to change the atmosphere and to plant the heavens with God’s ‘now’ purposes that, as God shakes our nation in many ways, from Government and long-established institutions, to communities and homes, the Kingdom of God will be built in our land.

In July 2015, in the middle of a very prophetic season, God gave me a clear word:

  • It’s the day of the clash of Empires,
  • It’s the day of the clash of sounds,
  • It’s the day of the clash of spirits as they seek to take the ground,
  • The no-man’s land of England will become a battle-ground,
  • The forces are preparing,
  • The swords are being ground,
  • I’m calling to My church now to listen to the sound.

That word brought a focus and a clarity to some of the other things I was hearing and seeing, as I recognised this was about the battle which is in the spiritual realm over our land. For many people it is now very obvious, but in 2015 things were less obvious.

For a period of time, God had been speaking to me about the authority we carry in the place of prayer and how many in the church had relinquished that authority, or simply not understood – what I would now call the Ekklesia message.

During that season, my husband and I moved to Windsor and, in June 2015, initiated a convocation in partnership with others to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. However, we did not only want to look backwards but also to start to look forward to see what God would do in the future. I began to understand that, although the Magna Carta had shaped the nation for nearly 800 years, in the natural it had limited success and only lasted a short time in its original form. As the centuries passed those in power would bring it back into significance as they saw the need. As we celebrated the past and looked towards the future, I felt God showed me several things.

Firstly, as His people step up into all He has called us to be, just as the tabernacle on earth was only a shadow of the one in heaven, so what we have seen of Godly Government in the past can become only a shadow of what He will do in the future through His people ruling and reigning in prayer (Hebrews 8:5). Secondly, as we begin releasing His purposes into the atmosphere, no matter what is immediately visible, the declarations have the power to shape the nation for the season ahead, alongside more immediate changes.

A large proportion of the declarations and decrees are on national issues, such as media, the Monarchy or Government and Brexit, and are taken from two positions: firstly, from a Kingdom perspective and are essentially non-political, but also they are focused on praying the Word of God. This is also a time, though, when we are on the brink of a tremendous move of the Spirit, so some declarations focus on the call to pray that the promised Revival is released in our nation with all its fullness.

The Origins of a Spiritual Magna Carta

As I started to formulate the idea of sending out declarations over the nation, I sent a sample to Rachel who was ministering in America at that time. She responded with the comment that, as she was reading the declarations I’d sent, she had received an email from an Hawaiian friend living in Canada, who wrote that she knew someone who needed to write a Spiritual Magna Carta for England; or, in other terms, a blueprint for what it would look like if the fullness of the Kingdom of God came to our land (see below).

This is a season when God’s eyes are upon nations and He is releasing new revelation in great measure; that revelation needs to be imparted, received and established and so Passion for the Nation carries a number of aspects: most obviously, declaring the Kingdom over our land so that God’s design and will in all situations is established, but it also operates as a watchman/ intercessory network and carries an element of teaching and training.

A Spiritual Magna Carta: 

Written in the year 2016, decreed and declared by Your people across the United Kingdom in June of that year – to shape and establish the government and fabric of our nation for this generation and the generations to come.

That the Name of Jesus be exalted in the nation above any other name, the sovereign purpose for the UK fulfilled and the Kingdom of God in all its variety and fullness, become increasingly established …(click/tap to continue reading).

Moving from the sword to the sceptre

Although addressed to churches across the ‘Pond’, this insight Wanda Alger received from the Lord directly complements not only what Veronika West brought this week, but also is pertinent to what I’m about to publish in connection with the word on castles and GPS #11 part 3. Therefore, the application of this teaching must be vitally important for now!

wandaalger.me

I was in prayer recently concerning the battles at hand in this nation and how to effectively intercede when I heard in my spirit, “It is time to move from the SWORD to the SCEPTER.” As I continued to pray into this, I sensed the Lord calling intercessors to consider another strategy in dealing with the demonic forces coming against believers in this hour. I believe the prayer movement is transitioning from the position of being WARRIORS to a position of being RULERS.

A familiar weapon of our warfare has been the sword of the Lord, the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12). However, the word of the Lord can be wielded not only with a sword in battle, but with a scepter from the throne. A scepter symbolizes a king’s judicial authority and is usually given as an inheritance, handed from father to son. We are shifting into a time…

GPS#11 part 7: ‘Global Prophecy Signalling’ System confirmed

We arrive at the end of a series of ‘spiritual GPS’ alerts I noticed over end-January and early into February, starting with an influx of calls for intercession and related prophetic words and visions, including references to Brexit, national shaking, the office of prophet being given ‘teeth’ and promises of God’s people being powerfully visited by Holy Spirit.

I’m sure most readers are aware of feeling presumptuous when venturing into what may be of, or from, the Lord. It’s always a welcome relief and encouragement when we get clear confirmation of our thoughts and actions, either direct from Him or through His Holy Spirit’s directing brothers of sisters.

And so it’s marvellous to get confirmation of the hypothetical concept and methodology I’d noted a few years ago, and then empirically observed their repeated manifestations!

[For newer readers: on occasions a cluster of related prophetic words arrive almost simultaneously, or about the same date, from the UK and other countries. It’s like a shower of jigsaw pieces from the Lord that fit together to produce a ‘picture’: or, as though He uses a spiritual GPS as a Global Prophecy Signalling system. David Stark at the Glasgow Prophetic Centre has described my gifting in this area as “joining up prophetic dots”.]

This time however, one of my participants (or ‘system components’) brings an amazing  account of their role in a similar scenario – and it connects into my personal history!

Before telling about that surprise, however, let’s remind ourselves of the current ‘signals’ comprising GPS#11 in the sequence of my awareness and actions (ie. not by Part No):

  1. ‘Anne D’ asks about 2Chron 7:14 and my knowledge of any calls to intercede for the nation and shares her thoughts and prayers (31 Jan with follow-up twice)
  2. ‘Peter A’ emails copy of David Hathaway’s ‘Call for Day of Prayer’ for Brexit, Unity and Biblical Reformation in the Church (30 Jan)
  3. Mentoring day: teaching on word re prophecy getting ‘teeth’, on one’s calling and
  4. ‘Suzanne F’ tells me about Passion for the Nation (3 Feb) – watch for follow-up!
  5. ‘Victoria’ in New Zealand seeks permission to publish Arthur Burt prophecy in connection with 40-day prayer-fast for Awakening in NZ and S Pacific (5 Feb)
  6. ‘Tony P’ in Arizona dreams about Brexit and need to pray (10 Feb: per Hathaway)
  7. ‘Leisa E’ sends audio-clip prophesying ‘Great Plans’ for UK on 29 Jan (12 Feb)
  8. ‘Suzanne P’ responding to Part 1 refers to prophecy of God’s power falling onto UK (1 Feb); I note relevance to recent dream and vision c 25 yrs ago (13 Feb).

Bringing prophetic pieces together

Responding quickly to my request for a transcription of Leisa, Carolyn Stewart tells an amazing story that acts as confirmation of my GPS hypothesis. So thank you Carolyn for kindly permitting me to share your email on this blog (emphases mine):

‘…By the way, a smallish group from Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival met in… Bletchley on 20 January…where Malcolm and Alyson Sim delivered some teaching on the prophetic and much worship, prayer and intercession for the nation took place.
It’s interesting as I received a word from the Lord about 18 months ago, after being woken in the night with the words, “I am making you a gatekeeper/doorkeeper.  I am raising gatekeepers and doorkeepers to stand in the gap on the city walls and pray.  I will restore what is broken and neglected.”  I knew nothing of the prophetic ‘scene’ in the UK, or Brexit, prophecies on Trump etc, and had been in a long wilderness season.  This was the first time I’ve received such a word.
I prayed and asked the Lord what He wanted me to do here.  (I live on the site of Bletchley Park decoding centre) He said, “I want there to be a spiritual listening station, like Bletchley Park was in WWII, to pray and intercede for the nation” – which took me back somewhat!   I mentioned it to our vicar…and he took from the word that they needed to be a listening church.  Nevertheless, having been led into several prophetic groups on Facebook, discovering Emma Stark on YouTube and the connecting of several prophetic intercessors in Milton Keynes, and my spiritual ears being switched back on again, I found myself in Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival, a small group of whom, decided to meet up, and by ‘chance” alighted on Bletchley to meet…
The ‘Spiritual Listening Station’ has actually come to pass.  Interestingly, a small group of intercessors…also set up prayer group call The Listening Station, and another Church…not knowing of what we were doing, independently set up a Facebook page for their church called the Listening Page.
When The Listening Station group I’m in first went live on Facebook, Bletchley Park actually received its first transmission of a code since 1945.  A competition took place between Bletchley Park and another listening station in Germany to see which could decode the message first.  The BBC were there to report it (my husband who is a photographer took some pictures independently of the decoders at work inside) and BP won!

This news took me aback too!

Those who’ve read my Bio Info may recall my previous interest in codes used in 16th & 17th century England (Elizabethan-Jacobean period). Another Barker had worked for Elizabeth’s spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham and his associate Anthony Bacon, the brother of the philosopher, Attorney General and Lord Chancellor, Sir Francis Bacon, who also had oversight of the literary renaissance. The brothers were practitioners in the arcane art of  cryptography:  Francis is well-known for devising the Bacon Cipher – but very few know of his co-editing with the Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg the Great Cipher Book, Cryptomenitices et Cryptographiae.

Its illustrations showing how to encipher messages within ordinary printed text are most interesting. I recall one similar to our contemporary word-search puzzles!  It displayed a printed page overlaid with a large zig-zag pattern like XXXXX. Letters within the pattern spelled out a hidden message!

Therefore, it’s especially intriguing that Britain’s famous codebreaking centre Bletchley Park has cropped up to confirm my conjectural concept of God’s GPS (Global Prophecy Signalling) system.

Today’s significant gathering to pray for turnaround in America

My thanks go to Dave Chapman for informing me of today’s prayer gathering in Washington DC convened by Dutch Sheets Ministries at Trump Hotel. It’s timing is exceptionally significant!

Four years ago in A July 4th Aspect of Praying for the USA  I wrote about Dutch’s goal of pressing through for a Third Great Awakening in America, as based upon an ‘Appeal To Heaven‘ made by revolutionary colonists in 1775.

The Turnaround: An Appeal To Heaven National Gathering (click for details)

Today through to Saturday an Appeal To Heaven gathering with Dutch, Chuck Pierce, Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle and other leaders will pray and prophetically shift America into spiritually turning around.

They trust it could prove to be one of the most historic prayer gatherings in America’s history because the atmosphere over Washington DC will be filled with intercession and biblical decrees, shifting the nation into the breakthrough Father desires to give. Also, it will re-launch the next phase of the worldwide prayer movement!

TIMING

It cannot be ‘coincidental’ that this gathering is the day following Billy Graham’s going ‘home’ and taking up his place in the heavenly courts, as indicated in the visions and words shared in the previous two posts, with their hoped-for outpourings!

Nor can it be ‘coincidental’ that this gathering is the day after President Trump and VP Pence personally met in the White House and listened to some survivors, bereaved  parents and officials who’d been affected not only by the latest outbreak of ‘ASS’ (America’s Satanic Sickness) in Florida but also spoke of its daily threat across DC!

We don’t watch end-of-day news broadcasts but mid-evening I decided to check the banner-loop of headlines running along the foot of BBC News screens. Such a surprise to see live-feed of that emotionally constrained meeting!  Brits wonder why our cousins over the ‘pond’ accept this satanic situation: change your moronic mindsets and shut down the demonic video and gun businesses!  Enough IS enough, so don’t just pray – act!

TIME FOR ALL AMERICAN PASTORS/PRIESTS to take a lead and repent not only on behalf of the nation, but also personally, for the desire to own, collect and use any firearm – and to renounce the right to bear arms and make a public display of destroying all firearms in their possession. TIME TO KICK ‘ASS’!

Rant over and now back to the UK: convening a prayer meeting throughout today, Dave Chapman writes,

‘Bearing in mind where our Nation is at presently, with difficult negotiations with the EU on going, and the dreadful state of the heart and lifestyles of this Nation, we equally are at a crossroads. I’ve copied a couple of links – especially the interview of Dutch Sheets with Steve Shultz, which follows Lance Wallnau’s intro, to catch the heart of this Call, though the others are informative too. ‘  [RB note: links as herein and intro immediately preceding this clip is accessible by clicking on earlier section of timeline.]

GPS#11 part 4: ‘from the ends of the earth’ – New Zealand

Another incoming ‘alert’, this time the first of two from overseas was received from the Lord’s ‘Global Prophecy Signalling’ system a fortnight ago today.

Over that weekend I’d been musing over the query from ‘AD’ on a call for more prayer for our nation and Suzanne’s introducing me to her intercessory ministry, Passion For The Nation and booklet Declarations to Change a Nation – plus Sharon’s mentoring day being of direct personal relevance!

Furthermore, I’d noted a friend’s email that evangelist David Hathaway is calling for a national day of prayer (more on this and the other overseas ‘ping’ in part 5). So an influx of intercessory calls was gathering momentum and Monday morning 5th February saw more arriving – and aligning with what I’d heard at the weekend’s meeting!

“PROPHESY WITH ‘TEETH’ – like a ‘Threshing Sledge’!”

In catching up with my long weekend’s cyber in-tray of email and WordPress/Facebook notifications I espied a courteous request from ‘Victoria’, who blogs ‘from the ends of the earth’ in the North Island of New Zealand. She asks for permission to republish my blog of the revival prophecy that Arthur Burt carried since 1937 and known as ‘There Shall Be No Ebb’. It now features on her group’s Facebook calling prayers for an Awakening in New Zealand and the South Pacific – and it was soon to be repeated here!

In its republication I’d sensed a possible reinforcing of that word in broadcasting across a cyber-platform and thus, as a prophetical declaration, in keeping with what Dr Stone had heard of the Lord blessing prophetic words with ‘teeth’. That is, the prophetic’s now going up a level, beyond what Sharon a few years ago on its fulfillment getting closer to declaration (ie acceleration), into delivery with a ‘threshing’ action now it’s harvest time.  Hence for example, the ‘fortuitous’ re-appearance of the ‘castles’ prophetic word just after this New Year. AND this is borne out by the general tenor of new material coming daily from UK Prophetic Words (UKPW).

Also, each of the Saturday’s main sessions were of direct relevance to me; not only on very recent spiritual exercises (‘Engage’ with Jesus) and a 50 years-old ambition (being a ‘friend of God), but also regarding my calling 10 years ago to blog on the prophetic! So, my focus that week was to return to basics and blog in-depth on watching and what to watch for; which resulted in two new ‘About’ reference hubs on this blog’s menu – and I reversed the title of an existing one to follow them alphabetically (Brexit vs EU).

Then on Wednesday 7th, UKPW published Prophetic Decrees for Revival in the UK – Arthur Burt  – ‘There Shall Be No Ebb’. Day’s later I asked Suzanne Payne whether or not she’d been contacted or read Victoria’s focus on that word in NZ. She replied in the negative saying ‘No other reason other than it’s the oldest prophecy for the UK that I know of.’

In fact, Sue had introduced the rationale for republishing prophecies in that post, viz:

‘Over the last few months, God has repeatedly been calling His people to DECREE the PROMISES that have been PROPHESIED over OUR LIVES, our CHURCHES, our CITIES and our NATION.

‘For this reason, I thought I would be good to daily post KEY PROPHETIC WORDS that have been given for this nation, so we can MAKE DECREES from each Word, LEADING UP TO David Hathaway’s Day of Prayer for Britain 23 March (see here )

‘It would be great if we could be in unity in doing this and SEE REVIVAL BREAK FORTH in the UK.

‘Starting with decreeing this Word from Arthur Burt 1937: I DECREE over the UK:

It (Revival) shall come as a breath…

And the breath shall bring the wind…

And the wind shall bring the rain.

And there shall be floods and floods and floods…

And torrents and torrents and torrents.

Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.

Arms and legs shall come down from heaven…

… And there shall be no ebb.”

Thus, we have a confirmation of the answer to the question AD had raised that began the influx of calls for prayer that I was observing – and now a reiteration and declaring of existing prophecies on both sides of the world – giving them ‘teeth’!!

Here are links to UKPW’s subsequent decrees based upon these prophecies:

UK Prophetic Words provides a valuable resource to the body of Christ and, as with all prophecies and visions for any source, discernment and weighing with the Lord’s Spirit and scripture are essential prerequisites when reading and using them in prayer.

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 the Runnymede area a few years ago. That’s where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215 AD and now, in discussion, I learn about her prophetic intercessory ministry based upon a spiritual version of that Great Charter.

After starting to investigate further and whilst writing this I begin to see the ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ coming together once again, because not only does this plug into the prophetic word on castles, but also into my researches on the history of Reading and the Thames Valley in the times of King Alfred the Great, and of his establishing a 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:
