Invisible Jigsaw pieces: ‘thin places’, open heavens, new season in Wales

Today’s first priority was to put finishing touches (as below) to previous post and publish. Only then did I check my email and notice these notifications automatically posted a few hours earlier, and re-published with the permission of Glasgow Prophetic Centre and UK Prophetic Words:

Lion Bites – OPEN DOORS IN HEAVEN 🔑

“My dear child, I have watched and rejoiced over your fiery heart that burns with much passion – for my sake and others’ sake. I have listened as you cried from deep within, asking me to open new doors to you, doors of opportunities to advance my kingdom in the lives of others.

“Know this; I am now calling you to come apart with me for a time, out with of your busy routine, spending time alone with me in prayer and in seeking my face. As you do so, I will come and meet you in this place, and you will be lifted into new dimensions of my spirit.

“In this new place, your eyes will be opened to see that doors of opportunity and of ministry that I have called you to. Walking through these now open doors will move you closer to your destiny and your purpose. This open door will shift you into a place of an acute awareness of my voice and ability to see what I am doing in the spirit realm. It brings with it certainty about the call I have placed on your life and confidence to outwork what I placed within you.”

Today, commit before God to ‘come away’ with Him and, as you do so, you will be lifted up to see your open door.

Revelation 4:1 –
After this, I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven…

Simon Plant: A NEW DAWN AND A NEW SEASON IN WALES

The Son will be revealed through dark clouds of the past.

There is a new dawn and a new season in Wales.

Turn your heads towards me. There shall be new stories written, there shall be new songs sung. These stories and songs will come together in unity to form a new narrative and sound in Wales.

A new narrative of testimony, peace and unity and a new pure sound of praise and worship will arise and shine My light and glory as bright as the Sun. The light of this new dawn will shine into the dark corners of your neighbourhoods where you have feared to walk, into broken hearts and lives that have remained untouched.

In my presence and light there will be a thawing of the ground. As the earth warms, bulbs that have laid dormant for decades will begin to return to life and push through the weight of the soil that has sat over their heads.

Are you ready My Bride? For many shall join you this year to form a host of golden daffodils.

Simon Plant, 1st March’17

EARLY MORNING EVENT!

It just so happens ‘coincidentally’, I’d been inspired upon waking to make minor changes to the previous post’s draft that was left unchecked as we went out yesterday. 

It was entitled ‘On ‘The Veil’ Separating Heaven and Earth’ but I was strongly impressed it needed a different emphasis by putting Phil Mason’s sub-header ‘Thin Places’ in my title and inserting a fresh opening paragraph about this term. Yet I did not suspect that more invisible jigsaw pieces were falling into place.

A family friend runs tours of ancient sites connected with Celtic Christianity and so I know about ‘thin places’, but I wanted a link for readers and ‘googled’ that term. I hit one of the top sites, but upon reading I saw it’s the community a ‘team’ friend is connected with and where others will be ‘on retreat’ later this month!

AND with Peter, another mutual friend, we’d chatted yesterday afternoon about previous blog references to darkness, the midnight hour etc. He reminded me of ancient Jewish wedding customs and how they relate to the parable of wise and foolish virgins and the return of Jesus for His bride. So, out of the darkness comes the glory of the risen King!!

After amending the draft post I was about to hit the ‘Publish’ button BUT got firmly nudged into providing a link to our 2014 trip to South Wales and the renowned retreat centre in ‘little England’ (Pembrokeshire). So almost as an afterthought, the link thereto got added to the amended post!!!

Only afterwards did I read today’s emails directly related to thin places as open doors and on Wales – and the opening lines of what Simon brings from the Lord refers to His being revealed out of ‘dark clouds’ and to a ‘new dawn’!

ALL TO YOUR GLORY ALONE LORD – I praise and thank you.

Journalist notices rushing, mighty wind in politics; confirming prophecies

Exceptionally astonished over morning coffee!

Just after sitting down yesterday in a local farm-cafe for morning coffee Nina tore into the crossword (literally!) and I dived straight into the Telegraph broadsheet edition. As usual, I aim for the centre pages’ letters and op-eds. Interested in others’ opinions first, I may then glance at the narrow leader column.

I could not miss this headline to historian and leader writer Tim Stanley’s coverage of Tuesday’s reception for religious leaders at Downing Street (tap image for link).:

tim-stanley-op-ed

FAR MORE astonishing, as at my underlining the copy, is this columnist’s confirmation of what some Christian prophetical voices have been declaring for some time about ‘changing winds’. He writes,

“…The age of political correctness is over, we agreed. A mighty wind is rushing over the political landscape“.

He opens, ‘How refreshing to hear a prime minister talk about their Christian faith, and sound like they mean it. Even I’ve been conditioned by political correctness to find it strange…

Theresa May said that people must be able “to speak about their faith and that absolutely includes their faith in Christ”…’ (emphasis added)

More on that in my next post, but in his article Tim refers to our godly history.

‘…the sweep of British history shows how Christianity has defined all of us, whether we acknowledge it or not. Christians banned slavery, eradicated child labour and established the welfare state. The language you use, the shape of your year, the ethics you live by – all are informed by the faith. Politicians struggling to find something to connect the nation in the Brexit era would do well to try the universal, timeless search for meaning through religion. …’

His closing call reminds me of the stunning open vision I had in 2004 of a rock (of Christ) that emerged like the Pennine chain out of the ripped fabric of society, one so rotten it’s like old, perishing sacking (as in my notes on Comments on the Collapse of Society).:

‘For far too long admitting that you are a Christian has been treated like a declaration of lunacy. Time to stop. Time for Christians to come out of the closet.’  (emphasis added)

Yes indeed it’s time we make a stand, because all it takes for evil to become endemic is for men and women of faith to huddle and hide away – but standing tall comes at a price, even in Britain!

Remember, however, the Lord has declared, “There is no longer any middle-ground”!

Later, I found email notification of the word Patsy Southway brought, The United Kingdom Has An Anchor, has a lead-section headed ‘March Winds’!  So the timing of Tim’s piece and its remark is far too coincidental – ‘God-incidental’ more likely!

Readers may recall other prophecies, especially in the past year, the main ones perhaps being:

The vital issue is whether or not we will see this prime minister stand on her word about freedom of speech, especially in view of what had happened on that day in a magistrates court not too far away!   This outrageous matter is the subject of the next post…

Veronica West: March a month of divine demarcation

Within hours of the Midnight Vision of Harvesting Angels on Tuesday Veronica posted this awesome follow-up.:

‘I know it’s early but here is just a glimpse into a Word God gave me today for the Month of MARCH!

“A DIVINE DEMARCATION IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL EMERGE IN A GREATER WAY STARTING IN THE MONTH OF MARCH”!

veronika-west‘This afternoon I was sitting in my garden when the Spirit of the Lord began to manifest, I felt a tangible weightiness of His presence surround me, then I saw in the Spirit the finger of God begin to draw a dividing line across the Nations of the Earth, I saw an even greater shaking begin to take place, I felt the ground give way as His finger moved across the Nations, then I saw in the Spirit realm a great and mighty SHIFT begin to take place in the earth, suddenly great and mighty earthquakes began to increase in the earth, and the waters of the seas began to rise violently, suddenly weather patterns over the Nations began to shift and change rapidly, then I saw heavy rainfall and large hail stones falling from the heavens, I saw mighty tornadoes beginning to form in the distance, then I heard the Spirit say,

“WATCH! FOR MARCH WILL BE A MONTH WHERE A DIVINE DEMARCATION IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH WILL BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE IN A GREATER WAY, FOR THE BOUNDARY LINES OF THE NATIONS ARE NOW BEING REALIGNED, REARRANGED AND REORDERED. WATCH! FOR A CLEAR DEMARCATION OF FUNCTIONS WITHIN THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRIES WILL BEGIN TO EMERGE ACROSS THE BODY CHRIST. WATCH! FOR THERE WILL BE AN EVEN GREATER DIVIDING LINE BETWEEN WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS EVIL, WHAT IS TRUTH AND WHAT IS DECEPTION, WATCH! AS I SEPARATE THE GOAT NATIONS FROM THE SHEEP NATIONS, WATCH! AS THE WHEAT AND THE CHAFF ARE SIFTED, WATCH! AS THE LIGHT OF MY GLORY GOES FORTH TO ILLUMINATE AND EXPOSE THAT WHICH HAS BEEN COVERED AND CONCEALED BY A BLANKET OF DARKNESS, FOR EVEN IN THIS HOUR THE FIRES OF MY GLORY ARE NOW BEGINNING TO FALL, FALL, FALL UPON THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WATCH! AS MY HAND NOW MOVES SWIFTLY TO FIRMLY FIX IN PLACE NEW BOUNDARY LINES WITHIN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, FOR MY KINGDOM IS NOW ADVANCING AND MY GLORY IS NOW INVADING FOR MY JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL RULE OVER THE NATIONS, WATCH! AS MY WORD GOES FORTH TO ESTABLISH MY KINGDOM PURPOSES IN ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH”, says God.’

Veronica West, 21st February 2017

Footnote:

It is rare for anointed prophetical voices to refer to exact timing but there are occasions when this is done, and of course it puts them on the spot because such prophecies can be easily checked for accuracy. Veronica West is connected to and accountable to Revd Dr Sharon Stone, whom I witnessed give a forecast in Oct 2013 of a ‘battle’ for Britain in two to two and a half years’ (ie 2016). This was fulfilled in the EU Referendum campaigns and subsequent bitter recriminations plus court and parliamentary battles.

Furthemore, Revd John Kilpatrick taught in 2014 about “prophesying into time” and Patsy Southway gave an accurate word about last May and its ‘domino effect’ (as here).

Prime Minister placed in position for a purpose

Thank you to ‘Lena’ for this informative guest post from her blog Placed for a Purpose. Let’s not forget that no-one anticipated a radical upheaval in our government bringing the longest-serving Home Secretary in 60 years, Theresa May, to Premiership. Surely the Lord’s hand was in it all:

I was fascinated today because whilst I was observing the news I looked at the name of our current Prime Minister and I felt I should go and check the meaning of it. Google came up with this,

‘Teresa is generally believed to be derived from the Greek ‘therizein’ (to reap, to gather in) and thus takes the definition of “harvester”.’

This is absolutely relevant to us today. There have been many prophecies as of late describing how we are as a nation on the brink of a national harvest. Yet this is not confined only to the UK but will rather be a global in-gathering. So it seems completely un-coincidental that we now have a leader whose name means ‘HARVESTER’. However another definition also came up for ‘Theresa’ whilst I was searching and this one was ‘SUMMER’. I also believe this is no coincidence either.

We have seen our society gradually decaying, the NHS in pieces, education behind other countries, a shocking housing crisis, widespread poverty and I could go on. However, this will come as a reminder, as a message of hope that we will come out of this winter and will enter into summer. We will of course have a spring first, perhaps it will be a cold one as many of them are but nevertheless we will see leaves and flowers start to bud. We will feel perhaps a different warmer kind of breeze and when the sun shines down it will fill you with warmth even if it is but only a moment.

In the end you know without a doubt that you are coming out of winter, there is no going back. Seasons always go in full circle. We can see this by looking at history, for example, the First and Second Great Awakenings. We have had our winter and we have paid the price of hibernating but now it’s time, it’s time to come out of the woodwork. It’s time to just take those small steps outside of your cosy little home and then you will realise that despite the cool air, wind and the rain there are a few flowers budding, the sun is appearing, the days are getting longer and the cold is becoming lesser. So let this be an encouragement to you that as we move into this Kingdom Age we know without a doubt that summer WILL come and we Will have a harvest very soon.

I believe our Prime Minister has been placed there for a purpose to bring about many things that are meant to be. I believe that we will see great improvements. I also believe that you and I were also placed on the earth for a time as this. There are no coincidences in God’s plans.

In emailing me Lena adds: ‘Let’s pray she even comes closer to God in all she does and knows him.’  Amen!

Paws 4 thought: Update on Midnight and Big Ben

Kitty - Paws4thort 5After yesterday’s early start to chauffeur a friend to/from Guildford I started summarising some dreams and visions of Big Ben striking midnight.

I closed with my off-the-cuff reply to ‘Tucson Tony’ asking for my ‘take’ on his dreams, but at the time of receipt I was very busy drafting. So I did a quick ponder…

I told him what flashed up as an answer: ‘My mediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now!’. Tony replied, ‘Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.’

BUT, I’d completely forgotten the content of our first-thing prayers that continue with the ‘Keep Praying & Bless’ cycle, as blogged last year. Yesterday we were at ‘Day 39’ for Cleethorpes and area (as well as locally) and part of the blessing for there is:

We bless you to be part of the Bride of Christ, to prepare for the day when He will come and fetch those who are waiting for Him’.

Now that’s what I call a ‘God-incidence’!

I trust you’ve had opportunity to note the feedback in the comments thread. Here’s a couple of them starting with Tim Shey’s subsequent remarks:

‘The photo of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben is significant. For some reason I forgot that Big Ben was connected to the Houses of Parliament.

‘Big Ben–center of time; Parliament–center of government. What starts in England will cause ripple effects throughout the world spiritually and politically. Brexit came first, then Trump won in the U.S.. Maybe Brexit will precede a U.S. exit from the United Nations.

‘More history: the English Civil War in the 1600s preceded the American Revolution in the 1700s. King James Bible in 1611–still very influential today. The Gospel preaching in Great Britain, especially after Queen Elizabeth I came to the throne, greatly influenced the spiritual/social/political formation of the American Colonies. The 1904 Welsh Revival preceded the 1906 Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles.

‘Again, after looking at the Houses of Parliament and the two hands pointing up to 12 on Big Ben: Parliament (spiritual and political government) and two 12s (a double anointing of government-influence): that is THREE WITNESSES OF GOVERNMENT–ANOINTED GOVERNMENT. The two hands pointing up (heavenward) to 12: heavenly government.

‘Prime Minister May meeting with President Trump was absolutely the Hand of God.’

[Tim re-blogged my post on her prophetically significant speech to the Republican Party.]

Clock from 4Signposts

In Pauline Watford’s contribution I’m reminded of a video that I had in mind after writing:

‘Derek Prince, when teaching on End Times before his death (24 Sept 2003 in Jerusalem – RB), said that God’s clock was standing at five to twelve!

‘And the Supernatural Clock Acceleration in Bob Jones’ hospital room on 6th February and 13th February 2014 (see YouTube videos) was said to point to the church being lined up with heaven’s time when the hands of the clock stopped at midnight. I believe the spinning hands indicated past time, stopping briefly at 8 pm. to indicate Jesus’ incarnation and his launching of the Kingdom on earth, then spinning round again and slowing at 11.50 pm. until they stopped at midnight.

‘And 6th February 2017 was Queen Elizabeth’s Sapphire Jubilee, if that has anything to do with it!’

Now it just so happens that 13 months to the day before posting Dreams and Visions of Big Ben…I’d blogged Body of Christ Being Accelerated to Sync with Heaven’s Time on 14 January 2016 about the very video Pauline refers to and quoted Gary’s Beaton’s insight to those events. Do please watch…

At  2:45 mark of Gary’s phenomenal account he refers to the synchronisation at midnight. (Read About his Transformation Glory Ministries.) After commenting upon the numerical significance of the timings he explains (6:30 mark):

“Twelve is the number of divine government …you’ve got a ‘synching’ up at midnight – another 12 – God was emphasising that His government is coming into the earth right now in apostolic power. We’ve never seen it – we’ve been talking for a long time about it coming…”

LOL – so we’ve now covered 13th…14th…15th…February – whatever’s next?

Watch out tomorrow!!

Prophetical signifance of PM May’s speech in Philadelphia

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the AtlanticThis was unplanned. Below, I tell of my reaction to events a week ago today that are indicative of a spiritual ‘Bridge over the Pond’; and in writing now tell about pieces of an ‘invisible jigsaw’ linking our English-speaking nations.: 

My usual full blogging day last Thursday got a tad waylaid but I intended writing on our Prime Minister’s visit to meet newly installed President of the United States Donald Trump on Friday 27th January – and dressed like a ‘Redcoat’, as prophesied!

pm-may-and-trump

As with most folk, however, I didn’t then know she wasn’t going direct to Washington but to an engagement that day to address the ‘GOP’ conference in Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence was signed. I got excited in my spirit upon reading the very brief mention in my newspaper, but didn’t know why.  But when I started writing I began to comprehend.

I published Fulfilled Prophecies #16 “The Redcoats are coming! The British are Coming!” – We’re here! and, later that day, Tim Shey commented from the far side of the States (and stole a march on me!).:

“I was having some lunch earlier today and I was able to watch some of Prime Minister May’s speech to some Republicans in Philadelphia. I thought it was inspiring. She emphasized the special relationship that the United States and Great Britain have had over the years. I believe that the Lord will strengthen the relationship between Trump and May and the United States and Great Britain.”

I usually take a long weekend family break from blogging. Time online is kept very minimal but before we went out the next day I did something I don’t even do regularly – checked a Facebook page! I dipped into Veronika West’s and knew what she’d posted on Thursday had to be re-blogged. A quick ‘copy and paste’ did the trick and hey presto: visions of the mighty rivers of gold and silver and gold-cum-silver handshake was reproduced.

Tim later remarks on my copy of her post (emphasis added):

“This vision by Veronica West is either confirmation or answered prayer. The day that Prime Minister May came to the United States I was really burning up in the Holy Ghost—the Presence of God was very strong. The next day, the Presence of God wasn’t as strong, so I asked the Lord why it was so strong when Theresa May spoke in Philadelphia. A day later the Lord answered my prayer through Veronica West’s vision.

“Powerful things are going to happen throughout the world because the Lord is bringing the United States and Great Britain closer together.” I remember General George Patton back in World War II got in trouble for talking about the Anglo-American Empire (he probably should have said Anglo-American Alliance). There is definitely an Anglo-American Christian influence in the world.

Tim blogs at The Road, his latest book is Writings From the Road and his Facebook page is the first book’s title, High Plains Drifter: A Hitchhiking Journey Across America.

I replied that I believe Theresa May’s visit is directly related not only on a politico-historical but also on a spiritual level that plugs our nations back together, or as Sharon Stone and other prophets have been saying, realigns us with the Lord’s plans and purposes for us in preparing for His return – it’s nothing to do with the personalities! I’m certainly convinced all those changes were engineered by the Almighty to fulfill His plans – AND the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plans to His servants, the prophets! (Amos 3:7)

A year ago no-one in the public arena would have believed what was to happen in shaking and jolting our nations to bring a complete upheaval across two continents with two totally unexpected, brand new leaders yet prophesied by, for example, Revd John Kilpatrick (see Fulfilled Prophecies #7).

Meeting newly installed President Trump is the politico-historical relationship, whereas going FIRST to Philadelphia by invitation of the Congress and Congressional Institute starts her journey on the much deeper (and higher!) spiritual level of our two nations’ original identity akin to imperial parent and colonial child.

Moreover, considering the possibility of Britain being the western equivalent of the biblical people of Tarshish with her young lions, according to Ezekiel 19:2-3 and 38:13 (as here), then we could chuckle at a UK-US’ family bonding with Mrs May being a ‘lioness’ (mother) and Donald Trump as her lion ‘cub’. If that’s so, then who’s truly in charge??

PM MAY’S’ PHILADELPHIA ADDRESS!

Philadelphia’s Well-known Symbol: The Liberty Bell

With that in mind let’s consider some points among many that Britain’s Prime Minister May brought to the Republican Party conference, as recorded in the official transcript (as delivered) of her half-hour address.:

“For more than two centuries, the very idea of America, drawn from history and given written form in a small hall not far from here, has lit up the world.

“That idea – that all are created equal and that all are born free – has never been surpassed in the long history of political thought.

“And it is here – on the streets and in the halls of this great city of Philadelphia – that the founding fathers first set it down, that the textbook of freedom was written, and that this great nation that grew “from sea to shining sea” was born.

“Since that day, it has been America’s destiny to bear the leadership of the free world and to carry that heavy responsibility on its shoulders. But my country, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, has been proud to share that burden and to walk alongside you at every stage…’  She then gave a brief resume of many areas of British and American collaboration in international affairs.

 So it is my honour and privilege to stand before you today in this great city of Philadelphia to proclaim them again, to join hands as we pick up that mantle of leadership once more, to renew our Special Relationship and to recommit ourselves to the responsibility of leadership in the modern world. 

Change in America

“And it is my honour and privilege to do so at this time, as dawn breaks on a new era of American renewal. For I speak to you not just as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but as a fellow Conservative who believes in the same principles that underpin the agenda of your party. The value of liberty. The dignity of work. The principles of nationhood, family, economic prudence, patriotism – and putting power in the hands of the people.

“Principles instilled in me from a young age. Principles my parents taught me in the vicarage in Southern England in which I was raised….”

Change in Britain

In speaking of the changes in Britain, our new way of working with Europe, international role and a renewed ‘special relationship’, especially relating to security, she said,

“…we have chosen a different future for our country. A future that sees us restore our parliamentary sovereignty and national self-determination, and to become even more global and internationalist in action and in spirit.

“A future that sees us take back control of the things that matter to us – things like our national borders and immigration policy, and the way we decide and interpret our own laws – so that we are able to shape a better, more prosperous future for the working men and women of Britain….

“This is a vision of a future that my country can unite around – and that I hope your country, as our closest friend and ally, can welcome and support…

“It is in our interests – those of Britain and America together – to stand strong together to defend our values, our interests and the very ideas in which we believe.

“This cannot mean a return to the failed policies of the past. The days of Britain and America intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over. But nor can we afford to stand idly by when the threat is real and when it is in our own interests to intervene. We must be strong, smart and hard-headed. And we must demonstrate the resolve necessary to stand up for our interests.

“And whether it is the security of Israel in the Middle East or the Baltic states in Eastern Europe, we must always stand up for our friends and allies in democratic countries that find themselves in tough neighbourhoods too…

“It is why I join you in your determination to take on and defeat Daesh and the ideology of Islamist extremism that inspires them and many others terrorist groups in the world today. It is in both our national interests to do so. This will require us to use the intelligence provided by the finest security agencies in the world. And it will require the use of military might.

“But it also demands a wider effort. Because one of the lessons of fighting terrorism in the last 15 years or so is yes, killing terrorists can save innocent lives. But until we kill the idea that drives them, the ideology, we will always have to live with this threat…”

She then referred to the major international issue, to which subsequent behind-the-scenes top-level agreements have now been seen to bear fruit, as in recent posts on Syria and Iran attest (here and here – the latter nation of which I’ve been watching for 30 years),

“Yet ultimately to defeat Daesh, we must employ all of the diplomatic means at our disposal. That means working internationally to secure a political solution in Syria and challenging the alliance between the Syrian regime and its backers in Tehran.

“When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who – during his negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev – used to abide by the adage “trust but verify”. With President Putin, my advice is to “engage but beware”…

“We should not jeopardise the freedoms that President Reagan and Mrs Thatcher brought to Eastern Europe by accepting President Putin’s claim that it is now in his sphere of influence.  And progress on this issue would also help to secure another of this nation’s priorities – to reduce Iran’s malign influence in the Middle East.

“This is a priority for the UK too as we support our allies in the Gulf States to push back against Iran’s aggressive efforts to build an arc of influence from Tehran through to the Mediterranean.

“The nuclear deal with Iran was controversial…But the agreement must now be very carefully and rigorously policed – and any breaches should be dealt with firmly and immediately.”

Did our Prime Minister read this blog’s paper on Nationhood by Dave Chapman?. She said,

“Yet the most important institution is – and should always be – the nation state. Strong nations form strong institutions. And they form the basis of the international partnerships and co-operation that bring stability to our world.

“Nations, accountable to their populations – deriving as the Declaration of Independence puts it “their just powers from the consent of the governed” – can choose to join international organisations, or not. They can choose to co-operate with others, or not. Choose to trade with others, or not.

“Which is why if the countries of the European Union wish to integrate further, my view is that they should be free to do so. Because that is what they choose.

“But Britain – as a sovereign nation with the same values but a different political and cultural history – has chosen to take a different path because our history and culture is profoundly internationalist…”

In her conclusion Prime Minister May cited famous British and American leaders and once more referred to Philadelphia’s renowned history,

“As we renew the promise of our nations to make them stronger at home – in the words of President Reagan as the “sleeping giant stirs” – so let us renew the relationship that can lead the world towards the promise of freedom and prosperity marked out in parchment by those ordinary citizens 240 years ago…”

PROPHETICAL JIGSAW PIECES

1. That reference to “sleeping giant stirs” reminds me of a friend Lynn’s vision in 2001 of seeing a giant arise , which itself echoes the ‘Tommy Hick’s Vision’ of 1961 (End-time Ministries of the Body of Christ):

“When in Cornwall had very strong  impression…as if I was positioned at the south-west of Cornwall looking at the land mass of England, Scotland and Wales from the air.  In a moment I saw rising up from Scotland first, like the lid of a container with the hinge being at the extreme end of Cornwall, the “Body of Christ”.  Impressed that the ‘Body’ is everywhere and there are people ‘hidden’ who are so much part of it. I was then taken aback by the thought that it appeared to be like a sleeping giant rising up powerfully and suddenly.  The experience left me with hope and anticipation for what God would do in spite of how things appeared.”

220px-Paul_Revere's_ride2. A famous event before the American War of Independence has a specific relevance in the prophetic background to this renewed ‘special relationship’.  It’s the theme of Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride in 1775 warning “The Redcoats are coming!”, that shows up as part of the design across some ‘pieces’.

Let me briefly outline a sequence of personal events on this:

3. In reading the background to a Revival Alliance gathering held in September 2011 in London I learned that Revere’s ride had featured as prophetical inspiration at the gathering’s inception meeting held in November 2010, as shown here:

Paul Revere Refc

4. Although unable to attend that gathering I had a strongly related dream that was about the Kingdom of God being set up here in Britain, as retold on its 5th anniversary last year.

5. In Holy Week, April 2012 I came across two prophecies relating to the same theme of a holy horseman. One was written on UK Prophetic Words and the other spoken by pastor John Kilpatrick, as recounted in Get Ready!

6. A few weeks after the EU Referendum, worship leader Lydia Marrrow delivered a powerful prophetic word that closed with excited exclamations that, “The Redcoats are coming! The British are coming”. This directly quotes Paul Revere’s cries to colonial citizens during his midnight ride. (Read transcript.)

7. After giving that word Lydia explained her excitement,

“It’s such an honour to be here. In case you’re wondering why I’m so passionate about God pouring His Spirit in the UK, history tells us that the United Kingdom and the United States do not have Awakening apart from one another!” (A Linkage Between Awakening in the UK and the USA)

8. This eighth piece is that of last weekend’s reconnecting of the historical link between our nations after the past 8 years under ungodly rule.

Bringing prophetical pieces together

Lastly, as we’ve encountered a midnight reference, could it suggest another jigsaw piece – that of  Midnight Words for 2017??

Dave Chapman on Nationhood

An instance of serendipity (or ‘God-incidence’) in this guest post by Dave Chapman being written whilst I wrote about the 2012 prophetic word on restoring nations’ identities.:

NATIONHOOD

It seems to me that too many Christians are afraid of standing up for our – or theirs, as the case maybe – Country. “We don’t like to get involved with politics”, we may hear, or “we are citizens of heaven, so therefore do not engage on that level”, for instance.

However, whilst ‘being political’ has to do with government and its desired nature, owning Nationhood I believe, is something quite different.  Getting involved with which ‘party’ runs, rules, or governs our own Nation does involve being ‘political’, or having a ‘preferred party’ bias.  But being involved with defending our own Government from other Governments, so that we make our independent and individual choices, is not ‘political’ in the true meaning of the word.  That is purely standing up for our own Nation – which is also quite different from ‘Nationalism’.

Yet, there is a fine line between standing up for our ‘Nation’, and ‘Nationalism’.  Here for instance, are the online dictionary definitions to help :-

Nationhood, is described as:-

“the fact or status of being a nation;  national identity, culture or economic life”. (Oxford dictionary, online)

“the state of being an independent nation”.  (Websters Dictionary, online)

“Nationhood is the state of being a nation, or a large group of people united by common language, culture or economic life”. (Your Dictionary, online)

“the state or quality of having status as a separate and independent nation“: (Dictionary.com)

Whereas ‘Nationalism’ is described as:-

“loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially :  a sense of national consciousness (see consciousness 1c) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups” (Merriam-Websters Dict, online)

ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests”. (Britannica Encyclopedia, online).

So we can see from these definitions that being a Nation, or having Nationhood, is a fact of life.  It is a state of being as a people, and operating as an independent ‘mass’ of people from other nations, whereas Nationalism is an ideology proceeding from a form of childish pride that “our nation is better than yours“!, and so displaying a superior attitude – with a desire to impose that culture and values on other Nations or peoples.

We can see that this latter approach is the root of an ‘Empire spirit’, which has manifested itself throughout the centuries over and over again.  Examples of this are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Roman, and of late the extremes of pre-War Germany, also Russia, and by the way, Britain, with its one time global Empire upon which there was no setting sun!, and finally since then, America, with its incursions into other Countries with a view to establishing democratic ideology.

Where Did The Idea, Or Fact Of Nationhood Come From?   Continue reading

11 numbers linking Israel and Donald Trump in 2017

We heard Revd John Kilpatrick quoting from this fascinating data collected by Michael Snyder and published by CharismaNews. I’m most grateful to publisher and author. Note Michael’s reference to number 50 for I’d noticed Dr Sharon Stone’s prophecy on 3rd Nov 2012 on national identity was echoed 50 months later by Donald Trump during interview, as blogged in Fulfilled Prophecies #15.:

Is 2017 going to be the most important year we have seen in a very, very long time?

Because of the work I do, I am constantly immersed in research, and lately I keep coming across very strange “coincidences” regarding the year 2017. The numbers I am about to share with you certainly appear to be quite remarkable, but there will be many out there who will question their significance.

To the naysayers, I would suggest that from the very beginning, God has always put a lot of emphasis on numbers. For example, He created the world in precisely seven days, and on the seventh day He rested. Throughout Scripture, we see certain numbers showing up over and over again, and God has a purpose in that. So please keep this in mind as you consider the following 11 numbers that connect the year 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

1. On Nov. 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that called for the creation of a Jewish state as part of an overall partition plan for the Middle Eastern territory that was occupied by Great Britain at that time. 2017 will mark the 70th anniversary of that agreement, and many believe that this will turn out to be quite significant. If you are not familiar with this U.N. resolution, here is some info on it from Wikipedia:

The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was a proposal by the United Nations, which recommended a partition of mandatory Palestine at the end of the British Mandate. On 29 November 1947, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the plan as Resolution 181(II).[2]

The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and a special international regime for the city of Jerusalem. The Partition Plan, a four-part document attached to the resolution, provided for the termination of the Mandate, the progressive withdrawal of British armed forces and the delineation of boundaries between the two states and Jerusalem. Part I of the plan stipulated that the Mandate would be terminated as soon as possible and the United Kingdom would withdraw no later than Aug. 1, 1948. The new states would come into existence two months after the withdrawal, but no later than Oct. 1, 1948. The plan sought to address the conflicting objectives and claims of two competing movements, Palestinian nationalism and Jewish nationalism, or Zionism.[3][4] The plan also called for economic union between the proposed states and for the protection of religious and minority rights.

So why would 70 years be important?

Well, the Babylonian captivity lasted for a period of 70 years, and as the Daily Crow explains, the number 70 just keeps popping up throughout the Bible.

Moses appointed 70 elders, and the gospels record 70 parables by Jesus. A total of 70 Israelites began their nation in Egypt before it would grow to over 2 million by the time of the Exodus. 70 elders made up Israel’s Great Tribunal which would later become the Sanhedrin. 70 disciples were sent out by Christ to preach the gospel in Luke 10. Therefore 70 means complete and perfect judgment or perfection made complete through judgment.

2. The number 50 is also a very important biblical number. And even though 2017 will not be a Jubilee year, it is fascinating to note that 2017 will be exactly 50 years from the reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967.

3. If we go back another 50 years from 1967, that brings us to the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which was also a very significant landmark in the history of the Jewish people.

4. It turns out that there was also exactly 50 years from the Zionist Congress of 1897 to the U.N. resolution in 1947 that called for the creation of a Jewish state.

5. As I stated in a previous article, Donald Trump was born precisely 700 days before Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948.

6. The nation of Israel was 77 days old precisely 777 days after the birth of Donald Trump.

7. Israel’s 70th birthday will come precisely 700 days after Donald Trump’s 70th birthday.

8. Donald Trump’s shocking election victory just happened to fall on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s seventh year, seventh month and seventh day in office.

9. Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day in the White House.

10. Donald Trump’s first full day in the White House will also come during year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.

11. Many are pointing to a very unusual celestial arrangement that will take place on Sept. 23, 2017. It is being called “the Revelation 12 sign,” and some claim this is the first time in 7000 years that we will see the scene described in Revelation chapter 12 actually being depicted in the heavens. The following is what Revelation 12:1-2 says:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child and cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

You can learn more about this very unusual event right here on YouTube. And of course, just because the stars are lining up a certain way does not mean something specific will happen on that day. Some have suggested that it could be the birth of something, and others have suggested that it could be the beginning or the end of a countdown. The truth is that I don’t know if anyone knows what it might mean at this point, but Jesus did tell us to watch for signs in the sun, moon and stars in the last days, so we should be alert.

Throughout history, God has always liked to use numbers to get our attention. And as you just saw, there are lots of unusual numbers that seem to connect 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

And even without any of those numbers, many have long had a feeling that 2017 is going to be an extremely significant year, and so we all need to be ready for whatever God has in store for us.

Isaiah 45, king Cyrus and Donald Trump : plus Obama’s P45!

Thank you to Mark Maddock for this contribution and I add some thoughts by Bill Koenig. Many readers are now, I expect, familiar with this scripture, but Mark includes a very good item on Comet P45 – itself a very appropriate reference because UK firms issue Form P45 (pay and tax data) to employees upon cessation of work!

LOL – the heavens have issued Barack Obama and staff with their P45!

Context Isaiah 44; all about Israel; v.23: ‘God’s glory is on display in Israel.

Isaiah 45 – The God Who Forms Light and Darkness & His message to Cyrus, a pagan world leader.

24 God, your Redeemer,
who shaped your life in your mother’s womb, says:
“I am God. I made all that is.
With no help from you I spread out the skies
and laid out the earth.”

25-28 He makes the magicians look ridiculous
and turns fortunetellers into jokes.
He makes the experts look trivial
and their latest knowledge look silly.
But he backs the word of his servant
and confirms the counsel of his messengers.
He says to Jerusalem, “Be inhabited,”
and to the cities of Judah, “Be rebuilt,”
and to the ruins, “I raise you up.”
He says to Ocean, “Dry up.
I’m drying up your rivers.”
He says to Cyrus, “My shepherd—
everything I want, you’ll do it.”
He says to Jerusalem, “Be built,”
and to the Temple, “Be established.”

45 1-7 God’s Message to his anointed,
to Cyrus, whom he took by the hand
To give the task of taming the nations,
of terrifying their kings—
He gave him free rein,
no restrictions:
“I’ll go ahead of you,
clearing and paving the road.
I’ll break down bronze city gates,
smash padlocks, kick down barred entrances.
I’ll lead you to buried treasures,
secret caches of valuables—
Confirmations that it is, in fact, I, God,
the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
It’s because of my dear servant Jacob,
Israel my chosen,
That I’ve singled you out, called you by name,
and given you this privileged work.
And you don’t even know me!
I am God, the only God there is.
Besides me there are no real gods.
I’m the one who armed you for this work,
though you don’t even know me,
So that everyone, from east to west, will know
that I have no god-rivals.

I am God, the only God there is.
I form light and create darkness,
I make harmonies and create discords.
I, God, do all these things.

8-10 “Open up, heavens, and rain.
Clouds, pour out buckets of my goodness!
Loosen up, earth, and bloom salvation;
sprout right living.
I, God, generate all this.
But doom to you who fight your Maker—
you’re a pot at odds with the potter!
Does clay talk back to the potter:
‘What are you doing? What clumsy fingers!’
Would a sperm say to a father,
‘Who gave you permission to use me to make a baby?’
Or a fetus to a mother,
‘Why have you cooped me up in this belly?’”

11-13 Thus God, The Holy of Israel, Israel’s Maker, says:
“Do you question who or what I’m making?
Are you telling me what I can or cannot do?
I made earth,
and I created man and woman to live on it.
I handcrafted the skies
and direct all the constellations in their turnings.
And now I’ve got Cyrus on the move.
I’ve rolled out the red carpet before him.
He will build my city.
He will bring home my exiles.
I didn’t hire him to do this. I told him.
I, God-of-the-Angel-Armies.”

 14 God says:

“The workers of Egypt, the merchants of Ethiopia,
and those statuesque Sabeans (= your enemies)
Will all come over to you—all yours.
Docile in chains, they’ll follow you,
Hands folded in reverence, praying before you:
‘Amazing! God is with you!
There is no other God—none.’”

All who have raged against him
will be brought before him,
disgraced by their unbelief.
And all who are connected with Israel
will have a robust, praising, good life in God!

DOES THIS RELATE TO DONALD TRUMP IN 2017-2021?  Possibly!

Are we at similar time in world history?  Yes, definitely!

Ie. There is a set length of time from Cyrus’ proclamation up to 1948 (Israel set up as a nation again); then 1967 (Jerusalem taken as the capital city of the nation) and then up to the next key date: 2018 (which is during Trump’s presidency in America).

2018 – the next key event? We’ve had the nation set up; the capital city re-taken… now it is something connected with Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.

If Trump is to act like a modern day Cyrus, then pray He will keep in step with God’s timetable and plans for Israel; in particular, what God wants to happen concerning ownership of and what is built on Temple Mount in the next 2 to 10 years.

P45  COMET  (Also called comet 45 P, or Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova)

From A Place to Meet Jesus, a blog by Richard Gazowsky, California, Dec 30th2016

‘As you look at the title of this blog, you are wondering what the ‘P45 Comet’ means. NASA has just announced this comet will appear on New Year’s Eve. I believe this comet (which will be passing by our moon) is a physical sign by God of a spiritual turnaround. Sometimes when God gives us a sign like this it is very simple. All we have to do is believe to see the sign.

God has told me that on January 20, 2017, there will be a birth of something new in the earth ~ a “New Renaissance”. He gave me this word on April 20, 2016 and said this renaissance will start exactly nine months to the date. This of course was before the presidential election, and all of the things that have since happened concerning our country and this election.

Then God spoke to me that there would be a comet in the sky that would be a sign to the earth. Our next president will be the 45th president of the United States, and the Lord said to me, “To confirm that He is the right choice, Isaiah 45 speaks about the prophecy concerning Cyrus His anointed” (emphasis added). And now suddenly, before New Year’s Eve, we see that NASA has named the comet P “45”.

It seems that God is sending a message to the earth, and we all are privileged that He has given us advance knowledge that something mighty is about ready to happen ~ and that it is going to be a blessing to everyone of us!’

The comet with be even brighter around Feb 11th 2017.

A PROPHECY FROM LANCE WALLNAU (USA)

This is copied from Lance’s Facebook account and shared before the US presidential election:

‘I sent this prophetic prayer to Donald J. Trump via his partner and attorney Michael Cohen. It’s quite a great crowd of believers  in Carolina – a key State – who are part of this army rising up for America. Perhaps half this room was for Dr. Carson or other candidates. When I was done the majority was with me for reasons I share here.

I think this prophetic prayer timely, as at this time, Iowa polls are showing a slipping of support for Mr. Trump among Evangelicals who prefer Dr. Carson to Mr. Trump 33% to 18%. I think it’s time evangelicals had a conversation about the criteria for office we are looking for. We want the most evangelical choice. But what we should ask is “who has God anointed?”

Here’s what happened. I shared with this crowd an unusual experience I had the other night. I realized that the next President of the United States will be the 45th President. I got the urge to open up a new Bible that was sent to me as a gift. A Bible put together by Rabbis to give the full Hebrew expression of the New Testament to Christians. I sensed the Lord tell me to look at the 45th Chapter of Isaiah to see who the 45th President of the United States should be.

Isaiah 45:1 says…
“This is what the LORD says TO HIS ANOINTED, CYRUS, whose right hand I have grasped to subdue nations before him, as I strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him and gates that cannot keep closed.”

Cyrus his anointed? But Cyrus was not even a Jew. He was a foreigner. An outsider. But God raises up secular Kings and Rulers for the sake of His people. This was Churchill and Lincoln and even Reagan. God wants to keep the gates of heaven open over certain nations – hence Cyrus will see “gates that cannot keep closed.” The gates of Hell have plundered a lot of ground in America this past seven years. It’s time that the gates of Hell were plundered and things were restored in certain places. Heaven’s gates will open and Hell’s gates will not be able to stay locked.

Angels get involved with warfare to see the right person (even unbelievers) get into office. Gabriel told this to Daniel in Daniel 11:1 “In the first year of Darius the Mede, I arose to be an encouragement and a protection for him.” Darius and Cyrus were both rulers put into office by God for the sake of His people!

I told them my experience and asked them to consider standing behind Mr. Trump as he continues to step into the role of a rough reformer like Luther to take on the Political and establishment high places. He needs to continue his work as a divine wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness that has been like a witchcraft muzzling and intimidating the Christian community.

Mr. Trump is not as evangelical as the other candidates, but I’ve been with him twice. He fears God as best he knows Him and he is the only Cyrus I see fulfilling Isaiah 45 for the 45th President.

There will be great warfare over this election and over this man in particular. A full tilt $100 million media campaign is about to be unleashed to slander him. I want to see the #Trumptrain on track with God’s plan.

Will you join me in the warfare to establish a Cyrus in office for the sake of God’s people and purposes?

AS ONE!

NOTES FROM WILLIAM KOENIG

Koenig’s Eye View from the White House – 6 January 2017

America’s 45th US President; Isaiah 44:28 And Isaiah 45 Perspective

I am sharing the following for thought and prayer:

Isaiah 45 speaks of King Cyrus, an anointed deliver God used to bring the Jewish people back to the land of Israel and Jerusalem.

Trump has committed to moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. His selection of David Friedman to be his ambassador to Israel, has raised millions of dollars for Beth El, Yeshivas and settlement in Samaria. Friedman firmly stands for Israel’s right to Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, an Orthodox Jew, Trump’s family and Trump himself have given money to the settlement communities in Samaria.

God’s GPS#3 con’td – Prophetic promises of fresh revelation – Part 2

The second email issued in the early hours comes through Lana Vawser in Queensland, and which reiterates a word for 2017 and thereby strongly emphases the Lord’s call:

DON’T FORESAKE THE SECRET PLACE!

LanaVawserI keep hearing the words over and over “Don’t forsake the secret place”. It has been weighing SO HEAVY on my heart lately. There has been such a stirring in my heart that the Lord is releasing a greater invitation to His people to COME DEEPER and COME HIGHER!!!

I had an encounter with Jesus many months ago and He spoke to me about a season of radical acceleration, breakthrough momentum and increase. The MANIFESTATION OF LIFE was springing up ALL AROUND!!!

When Jesus spoke to me about this season we are in and moving further into and how exciting it will be. It will be the “FINALLY SEASON”. The season that we have been waiting for. Where we begin to see the first fruits of breakthrough, we begin to see the explosion of Ephesians 3:20 in our lives, and we begin to see the increased momentum of the move of the Holy Spirit amongst the body of Christ bringing the GREATEST AWAKENING that we have EVER seen. The AWAKENING so glorious, it will spill out into the nations, and we will begin to see a great divine turning, returning and restoration within nations.

In this encounter, Jesus grabbed my hands and with such love in His eyes, He said to me “But don’t lose Me in the breakthrough”. In this encounter I began to weep and weep as I felt the weight of the warning, the weight of the invitation to come deeper and the absolute pure truth and reality that He is so jealous for His people. His heart is always longing and crying out for deeper intimacy with His people. His heart so full of love for His people, so longing to dine with His people and share His heart.

This encounter burnt so deeply in me the heart of the Lord for His people to KNOW HIM and I have carried the fear of the Lord concerning this season of acceleration and breakthrough, crying out for wisdom on how to steward this season of breakthrough, increase, acceleration and extension. I believe that as we are entering deeper into this season that is SO GLORIOUS, the Lord out of His love, continues to warn us, to call us deeper, to remind us to remain in the secret place and draw us back when we wander.

Jesus is teaching us right now how to STEWARD THIS SEASON WITH PURITY AND INTEGRITY and it all flows from THE SECRET PLACE.

DON’T DESPISE THE ‘FRUSTRATION’, REST AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THE REST

There is a FRUSTRATION that many are feeling in this season. Things are not happening fast enough, or there’s another delay, or things aren’t opening in the way that has been expected, but I want to encourage you to REST and let Him take care of the REST. I have said many times in this season that He is going to lead you to something better than you could ever imagine or expect, but there is a deeper level of surrender to His WAYS and TIMING in this season that is required. Don’t rush your process, continue to delight in Him. Make MEETING WITH HIM DAILY with NO AGENDA your greatest priority and the LIFE and ABUNDANCE that shall flow from that place will leave you in AWE. The frustration many of you are feeling, the Lord is using, to draw you closer to Him, because He wants to release greater revelations of who He is, His beauty and His love. He hasn’t forgotten your dreams and the promises He has given you, He’s working deep on your foundations to keep you anchored in Him.

DON’T LOSE THE KEY AND YOUR KEYS – WORSHIP

In this season of acceleration, where there is a temptation to forsake the secret place, not from ill intention, but getting carried away in the breakthrough and joy of the season, even becoming distracted by manifestations of breakthrough, favour and increase – WORSHIP must be a priority every day. Worship will keep you covered, worship will keep your eyes on Him, worship will keep you aligned, yielded and sensitive to Him.

I had a vision as many were getting carried away in this whirlwind season of acceleration beginning to come up against situations that seemed “locked” and they didn’t know the “way through” or how to “unlock” breakthrough in prayer through intercessory strategies. They were running around in a frenzy and they were panicked saying “Where are my keys? I can’t find my keys, where have my keys gone?

“It was then that I saw Jesus standing before them and with a smile on His face He spoke,

“I AM THE KEY! In Me are ALL KEYS of STRATEGY, WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. DON’T LOSE THE KEY AND YOUR KEYS – WORSHIP!!!”

Last year the Lord was emphasising strongly this is the season of the FIRST LOVE, a great returning, and this year, I believe He is emphasising it EVEN MORE, because of the mighty acceleration, breakthrough and increase we are beginning to see.

DON’T FALL ASLEEP AND BACK INTO COMPLACENCY

“Don’t fall asleep and back into complacency. I want a BRIDE THAT BURNS!!!! To COUNTERACT the SLUMBER – WORSHIP and do not forsake the secret place! Be INTENTIONAL to WORSHIP!!!! WORSHIP WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE!!!!”

“In the secret place right now, you are going to encounter My fire and the power of My Spirit as you worship, that is going to set you alight! It’s going to take you into realms of intimacy with Me that will see your heart and soul filled with the greatest, deepest peace and joy you have ever known. It’s not the time to ‘sit back and relax’ as the pressure lifts. It’s the time to press even deeper still into knowing Me. It’s the time to worship like you have never worshipped before. It’s the time to dance with Me and catch My gaze as I look lovingly towards you and let Me lead you. Let Me guide you. Forsake all other things that are pulling at you, and focus on Me. Trust Me, for I am taking you to places that you have never imagined or dreamed. This is the year where I am causing you to THRIVE and ARRIVE but all life and increase and long-lasting fruit will flow from the secret place.”

ALLOW ME TO PREPARE YOU FOR YOUR GREATEST DAYS UPON THIS EARTH

“It will be EVIDENT in this season who has been in the secret place and who hasn’t.”

“I am highlighting the lamps! I am highlighting the lamps! Look at your lamps! How are your lamps? Are your lamps full? Or are your lamps empty? Do not be found “not ready”. You must be found ready!!!! Come deeper, come deeper My people. Come to Me, not in fear, come to Me in delight, to know Me for who I am. I am working for your good, I am working in your heart, soul and life to set you up for longevity. For what I am doing and about to do in the earth, My people must be rooted and anchored in Me and know the secret place like never before. There must be a new level of sensitivity to see where I am going and what I am doing, and you will only increase in sensitivity as you press into Me and allow Me to teach you and mould you. Your greatest days are upon you, and My heart of love for you, My heart as a good Father is yearning, for you to yield and come deeper in the secret place and allow Me to prepare you for your greatest days upon this earth.”

SATURATE YOURSELVES IN THE WORD

“There’s a call being released from My heart right now to saturate yourselves in the Word like never before. Feast upon it day and night. Surround yourself with it daily. There’s a temptation to ‘snack’ here and there upon the Word in this season as things as this acceleration increases, but it’s in this place, you need to slow down and FEAST AND CHEW on the Word. It’s CRUCIAL My people are in a place of MEDITATION upon My Word in this season of ELEVATION AND ACCELERATION.”

God’s GPS#3: Prophetic promises of fresh revelation – Part 1

Puzzle in sky - Idea go[GPS = Global Prophecy Signals] Here’s the first of two emails found sitting together in my in-tray (time-stamped within 1/4 hour of each other at about 3:30am) – from opposite sides of the world on a related theme. As noted below, this published by UK Prophetic Words relates to recent posts. (Click title for link):

I am Pouring Out Revelation

I am pouring out My spirit in the night watches. I am showing forth revelation in the dark hours. For this is a time of multiplication. I have much to speak to you and much I would have you know. There is so much information to give you that I have to input into your very spirit what I’m going to be doing this year.

There will be a transition from what you have been told is prophetic to what is prophetic. The old ways are going to melt away and you are going to see revelation come from the most unexpected places. You will see it spring forth out of dry ground and out of rocks and crevices. The lowly places shall be exalted and those who have sat in obscurity shall come forth with such wisdom, you will be astounded. Do not limit those you have not heard of, for I do not limit them. I am pouring out revelation to those who will hear. I am pouring out revelation to those who will stay awake for My word. I am pouring out revelation to My sons and daughters who have a hunger and a thirst above all other things.

Vida Caplin 14 Jan’17

footNote:

This word accurately describes the blessing that inspired me whilst digging into Jesus’ role in Creation. Eg., after publishing the continuation without properly mulling over its draft I awoke in the night to realise my mistake in having given the impression that Jesus spoke in Greek, not  Aramaic, as is well-known!

In referring to the Greek text I argued ‘a clear allusion to the future and processes/action (‘yet’)’ implies ‘a deliberate, strong use by the Lord Jesus Himself of a distinction between time and space.’  Yet in the night, it occurred that could well be untrue as Aramaic may not convey the subtle nuances shown in Greek. Also, the authors could have taken it upon themselves to use those different terms for ‘world’.

So I asked, “What’s the answer?” to that conundrum.  I was quickly reminded Jesus’ early disciples lived under the Holy Spirit’s anointing – and there’s a verse of scripture where Jesus promises that He’d remind them of everything He’d taught them. Thank you Lord!

Hence, the Postscript with its extra, revelatory insight.
