GPS #35: ‘God-incidental’ messages focus upon the Lord’s Return

Do you get the impression the Lord is turning our faces – as though holding them in His hands – to look specifically at the important matter of His return?

In fact, I submit to you it’s on God’s GPS system, ie. His Global Prophecy Signalling for the following reason:

My offering to a forum what Nina audibly heard on the Second Advent coming sooner than we think or expect, as recounted in Back to Biblical Basics, was met by a wariness on the matter of ‘timing’.

Many will recall claims, mainly by American church leaders, notoriously setting dates for Jesus’ return and which have proven false. Even the Book of Revelation’s penultimate verse says it will happen ‘soon’ – but nearly 2,000 years is not soon!  In my opinion, this timing is in the supra-natural realm where things appointed for the future exist but have yet to manifest upon the earth, rather like faith is the substance and evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1) – or as Apostle Peter explains definitively,

‘But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:8 NKJV)

I’ve blogged elsewhere that prophets don’t set any timing upon fulfillment of words and visions for such an insight is a rarity, and it becomes a measure of being a true or false prophet!  Thus, Chuck Pierce, Dr Sharon Stone and Veronika West put their reputations on the line when prophesying about major changes this month, as summarised herein.

In replying via Messenger to the forum I mentioned having recently received papers on End-times. Two contributors to this blog, unbeknown to the other, prepared them almost simultaneously in the last week of June!  So, I got nudged to close my response with a previously unconsidered remark, ‘It’s as though the Lord’s deliberately turning our faces to look specifically at this important matter’.

What I didn’t know was that, whilst I was writing, the Lord was confirming that final idea by GPS!  Upon sending my message and returning to the top of my email in-tray I found a new email from an overseas intercessor stressing this very issue:

‘I saw today the posts you put up over the weekend. Keep it up dude, that is your calling – “Looking for signs of Jesus’ return.” That is your focus…’

Therefore, much as we appreciate ‘rhema’ words from the Lord, it is very important not to neglect the prime importance of Biblical, End-times, prophecy. It takes precedence as being in the sovereign will of God, within which contemporary prophecy is interwoven.

Next, let’s consider those other two author’s papers…click to read > >

7th ‘jigsaw piece’: yet another coincidental Press headline, or is it ‘God-incidental’?

This headline in one of Sunday’s newspapers is perhaps secular confirmation of what Revd Christopher Bird and I confirmed to one another on the previous Sunday about an ‘atomic bomb’ explosion of God’s glory across the nation, plus what happened at the Glory Feast and Glory In The City events in Hertfordshire and the prophetic word and vision of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit coming to that county.:

I’m grateful to Veronika West for drawing this to my attention for I eventually noted her reaction upon seeing this, as posted on Sunday 30th June on her ministry’s Facebook under the heading:

“A POWERFUL PROPHETIC SIGN OF THINGS TO COME FOR THIS GREAT NATION”..!

‘As I read the headlines this morning I heard the Spirit say, “WATCH! FOR GREAT BRITAIN WILL BE BASKING IN THE LIGHT OF MY GLORY AND ALL NATIONS WILL BE DRAWN THE BRIGHTNESS OF HER RISING”..!

‘PS. Check out the words under the main heading; ‘Sun worshippers make the most of the day…’

I PROPHESY, “SON WORSHIPPERS’ WILL RISE UP ACROSS THIS NATION AS THE GLORY OF THE LORD COVERS THE LAND LIKE A THICK BLANKET…!”

5th ‘jigsaw piece’: last week’s Glory Feast in He(a)rts

Continuing from he previous post’s ‘jigsaw pieces’ and trusting you’ve noted them:

5th Piece: GLORY FEAST 23-26 June 2019

The ‘spiritual fallout’ since 2nd May, when I sat in as merely an ‘observer’ – so I thought, to the first video team-conference for convening One Voice 8 Feb 2020: The Prophetic Voice, has been waiting and watching for confirmations that the ‘atomic glory-bomb’ I saw in 1992 was not only a true, rather than false, vision but also significant for today.

In having had an immediate confirmation and further elucidation from Veronika West as she listened to my brief account, I sensed the Lord may bring it into manifestation much sooner than next year. So, when I received notice exactly one month later of the event announced below, and that it immediately preceded the 27th anniversary of that vision of the Lord’s glory exploding in Britain, I then saw how His ‘cookie could crumble’ – that is, discerned a possible picture emerging as pieces of His ‘invisible jigsaw’ fall into place – and indeed they did:

Click image for details of April 2020 Glory Feast

Conference convener Robin Jegede-Brimson, about whose prophetic alliance in South-east England I cover here, has today posted on his Facebook news of what happened, plus several videos, at this Glory Feast in High Leigh, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire:

‘THE SWORD OF THE LORD IS BEING PLACED IN THE HANDS OF HIS WARRIOR BRIDE IN THIS SEASON, HIS BELOVED DAUGHTERS ARE NOW RECEIVING A FRESH OUTPOURING OF HIS ANOINTING AND HIS AUTHORITY TO WAR IN A NEW WAY, FOR A NEW DAY IN DAWNING UPON THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH!

‘THE GLORY OF THE LORD WAS SO HEAVY UPON ME AS THE SWORD FOR THE NATION WAS PLACED IN MY HAND I NEEDED TWO WOMEN TO HOLD ME UP; I BELIEVE THIS IS A POWERFUL PROPHETIC PICTURE OF WHAT GOD IS “NOW RELEASING” TO HIS BELOVED WARRIOR DAUGHTERS IN THIS HOUR, BY FAITH AS YOU CONNECT TO THIS POST RECEIVE, RECEIVE, RECEIVE WHAT THE LORD IS RELEASING, TAKE HOLD OF THE SWORD OF THE LORD AND BEGIN TO ADVANCE AND TAKE GROUND.

‘I hear the Spirit say, “MY BELOVED WARRIOR DAUGHTERS THE BATTLE IS RAGING BUT THE VICTORY IS ASSURED, ITS TIME TO ADVANCE, OCCUPY AND ESTABLISH MY KINGDOM PURPOSES UPON THE EARTH, FOR THE TIME OF BIRTHING HAS NOW COME”...! (Veronika West)

Continue to next posts for 6th and 7th ‘jigsaw pieces’.

‘Jigsaw pieces’ portray 27th June’s significance in modern prophecy

A number of things heard during our visit last Sunday to a church not far away started to bring not only a few apparently disparate matters together but also, in confirming a 27 years-old vision, draw them all together like pieces of the Lord’s invisible jigsaw.

First, therefore, let’s take a look at Habakkuk (chapter 2):

I will stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected.

Then the Lord answered me and said:

“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
 For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry…”

Let me hand you the pieces and in your imagination see how they fit together and wait on the Lord to reveal the pattern:

1st Piece: EMERGING LEADERS’ CONFERENCE

Today is the last day of this event convened jointly by Fleet Baptist Church and London School of Theology to host the International Leader’s School of Ministry conference led by John and Carol Arnott.  It is aimed exclusively at emerging leaders and Bible college students (from across UK and Europe), as well as those who are ready to start full-time ministry, or have recently started in ministry.

The ILSOM is renowned as a life-changing school and this 4-day event will train, equip and minister to those who have a desire to go deeper in the Lord. The teaching is also designed to help remove obstacles hindering our relationship with God.

Students are learning to hear God’s voice, know their heart is secured in His love, freed of hurts and oppression, and how to minister effectively with the Holy Spirit in the power and anointing of Jesus Christ. Therefore, it’s a time for restoration, renewal and refreshing where Father strengthens and brings revival in passion and vision for Himself and the call He has on one’s life.

2nd Piece: PASTOR’S ‘ATOMIC BOMB’!

In referring to that conference at the start of Sunday’s service at FBC, Revd Christopher Bird described it as being like an “atomic bomb” in introducing theology students to the Holy Spirit’s practical, power ministry. Now, he had my full attention because I’d blogged about having seen one of those in a vision 27 years ago today, as told when inviting readers to February’s One Voice prophecy conference (Bringing the Glorious Word of the Lord to the Nation).

Maybe Chris was referring to my vision of golden rainfall and exploding atomic bomb, because I’d mentioned it in my email inviting him to the One Voice event?

Afterwards therefore, I asked Chris why he’d used those words and he said he’d seen a picture in his morning prayers that developed into an atomic explosion of God’s glory across our nation!  However, he apologised for NOT having read my email yet – and then thanked me because I was confirming what he’d seen that morning! Therefore, it must surely be a God thing!!

3rd Piece: CONFIRMATION AND ANNIVERSARY

In other words, Chris directly confirmed the vision I’d had as he hadn’t read my account from my first years as a new believer at Tilehurst Baptist Church, which reads:

‘At a very early Pangbourne prayer morning on 27 June 1992 I saw “a waterfall of golden rain which became like a nuclear bomb but in reverse”. When I later told associate pastor David about this he expressed keen interest in view of the vision of liquid fire he’d previously seen over Tilehurst.

‘What particularly impresses me about this picture was that the golden rain (flames?) suddenly condensed into a focal point and there followed a brilliant flash of light. In films of nuclear bombs I’ve seen, the immense flash was followed by fire.

‘Regret I’ve not got any relevant scripture for this but believe it may relate to TFC. Like that widespread ‘rain’, we’ve reverted into a more compact unit, or operation. Perhaps the next phase is for the Lord to ignite us into a powerful instrument, such that His light will go off like a mighty bomb.’

Subsequent considerations connected that vision to meetings held in late 1990s along the Thames Valley and prayers for God’s glory to flow through them into London. Now, however, as emphasised by this Hampshire Baptist minister, that glory explosion won’t be localised but will affect the whole nation!

Today, 27th June is the 27th anniversary of my having that vision and, it seems to me, the scriptural significance of that number may be inferred from Paul’s doxology in Philippians 2 : Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Mathematically, 27 = 3 x 3 x 3, or three cubed (three to the power of three), suggests to me The Holy Trinity’s multiple power in all three realms of Creation.

4th Piece: JOHN ARNOTT on END-TIME REVIVAL

John prefaced his message based upon the fulfillment of Revelation 14:14 harvesting by referring to Smith-Wigglesworth’s prophecy of The Word and The Spirit: the time when there will be equal emphasis on teaching from scripture and experiencing Holy Spirit’s power and presence, so believers may thus be empowered to evangelise with signs and wonders following and bring the masses into salvation before the End-time’s judgement.

More ‘pieces’, or gems, were to emerge within John’s teaching, but these will suffice for today and you can listen to the entire message here.

So, I wonder if the ‘invisible’ picture being revealed by these few pieces is what Norman James, Wigglesworth’s prayer partner, saw in 1997 of the same vision for Britain that had left him speechless and his face radiant?

Therefore, all these pieces suggest that original vision is soon to manifest…and as in the above illustration a few more ‘pieces’ were yet to drop our of the ‘heavelies’, as told here, here and here.

GPS #34.1: Discern carefully between the two winds

Digital Globe with Hand by Watcharakun, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net

In re-blogging the two visions perceived by Tony Puccio last Wednesday and Thursday I referred to the latter, of a tornado or whirlwind affecting churches by stripping them to their foundations, as coincidentally following a related one posted by Mary Carpenter Burt (Word and Spirit International Ministries) on Facebook group Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival. (Tony assures me he doesn’t access Fb for work-related reasons.)  Mary kindly permits to republish what she received from the Lord:

“There are 2 winds blowing, says the Lord, “My Wind and the other. Discern between the two. Unless you ‘see’ and hear’ in and by My Spirit, you will be carried away by the wrong wind.

“Take time to ‘wait’ on Me. Do not be so quick to embrace. ‘Wait’ and again I say ‘wait’. You ‘feel’ but you do not ‘know’. When you hear the ‘call’ then respond. But unless you learn to ‘wait’, you will not ‘hear’ and you will not be in ‘position’ to catch My Wind. I need to take My people to another place of intimacy where My Breath becomes their life. For you see, My Wind is Breath and the other death. Wait I say, for My Breath and live.”

Mary Carpenter Burt, 18th June 2019.

Footnotes:
  1. Now all three ‘God-incidental’ reports, or God’s ‘Global Prophecy Signals’, are available I’ve renumbered their titles in sequence of receipt. So, although posted last, this word of last Tuesday is first, making Tony’s of Thursday second and then  Veronika’s of Friday is third – it may prove helpful to re-read them in sequence.
  2. Reading an earlier contact from Mary clarifying a word her father Arthur carried since 1937, I note my blog on this refers to a ‘Two Winds’ prophecy and wherein I write, ‘The tornado forces of that First Wind could be like…’.

Visions of England ablaze – and a holy whirlwind (GPS #34.2)

aurora-uk_2192580k_Image credit Telegraph

May I offer the following visions for your weighing with the Lord. Readers may recall previous posts on dreams and visions (eg. on Big Ben) received by Tony Puccio, a resident of Tucson, Arizona, on what he believes the Lord is about to do in England. Here’s the two latest:

1. ENGLAND ABLAZE, ANOTHER VISION (19th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I saw the following vision.

‘Imagine, if you will, the Olympic runner who runs with the torch and at the end of his/her run lights the flame for the beginning of the games.

‘With that said I saw England and it was dark. Then I saw what seemed to be Olympic runners seemingly descending from the sky each holding a torch. Again remember the ultimate purpose of the runner was to light the fire signaling the beginning of the Olympic games. However, in the Olympics only one lights a fire. In the vision, as I stated above, was dark but there were cauldrons, many of them. Each individual carrying a torch would use that torch to light the cauldron and that part of England would be lit. This was repeated by the other runners until all of England was ablaze.’

NB: This timing is interesting because it was 7 years ago when the Olympic Torch was carried throughout Great Britain & Northern Ireland for 70 days ahead of the Olympic Games of 2012.  In order to cleanse its pagan influence, it was preceded by an open-top bus on which praise and worship was sung, in which we participated as told here. Many readers may recall the two visions of fires Jean Darnall experienced in 1967 of groups of believers across Britain being struck by lightning bolts. Tony confirms the vision specifically relates to England alone in the UK. This is especially encouraging in view of what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2013 of its need to get in sync with the Lord’s purposes.

2. ENGLAND’S CHURCHES (20th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I once again was shown England. This time however, I saw what we would call in the States a tornado. This was a whirlwind that had both direction and purpose. I watched as the whirlwind would pass by a church and the church literally would be sucked into the whirlwind leaving the foundation exposed. This was repeated many times. This to me is reminiscent of Ezekiel prophesying in chapter 13 about the Lord tearing down the wall and exposing its foundation.’

Again, ‘coincidental’ timing is interesting in view of a posting dated 18th June in a Facebook Group and which I hope to be able to republish. 

Prophecy Update #5: Press again uses prophetic terms in politics

Now and then over our regular long weekends, I get to spend an hour at my desk and quickly run through the email’s in-tray.  It ‘just so happened’ as I did so on Saturday that one came from Margaret H drawing my attention to a Friday newspaper’s strap-line that  implies confirmation of a profound prophecy.  Margaret writes,

‘…I’ve been thinking a lot, and praying a lot, as we all have, I’m sure, about Boris in that earthmover, and Veronika West’s word about it [A Work of Divine Excavation…Taking us “back to our old foundations”], which you posted on January 21st this year along with your own picture from 2014 [Call to pray for UK]…[RB: ’twas a very vivid vision!]

‘Yesterday morning I found on the BBC website, among their images of the front pages of the daily newspapers, a confirmation of ‘Bulldozer Boris’. It’s using the words in a different context, in reference to Boris sweeping all before him in terms of the leadership election, but it’s definitely prophetic and confirmatory.’

So I did a quick search and found this summary shot from BBC in the Guardian:

And here’s a close-up of the Daily Mail’s front page:

Brexit Party God-incidence via ‘Bridge o’er the Pond’ (GPS #33)

At long, long last another instance of the spiritual bridge over ‘the Pond’ ! (An imaginary supra-natural bridge linking Britain with North America used by Holy Spirit for delivering the same, or similar, teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the North Atlantic ocean on the same, or next, day – see earlier posts.)

As told last Thursday in the previous post, it was the day of the EU elections when I emailed Dave Chapman about an intercessor at his church having contacted Nigel Farage. We didn’t proceed further in view of the Bank Holiday weekend and awaiting results of the election. However, on the holiday Monday, Canadian intercessor Maxine Phyllis left this notable comment to the dream about the next Prime Minister, and which warrants separate publication (note; a ‘gremlin’ treated it as ‘spam’!):

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

Endless Bridge by Evgeni Denev (credit Freedigitalphotos.net)

‘From Atlantic Canada: This brings me to an experience I had with the Lord in which I was given a free air ticket in 2008, to travel to England where I spent two weeks based in Somerset County. I flew out of Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 31, 2008 and spent the Remembrance Day season in Britain. As a descendant of Canadian war veterans it was a huge deal to me, but the LORD – the Holy One of Israel – had something to show me about where the political realms came to an end and the Kingdom of God begins. I saw in the Spirit a great dark veil spread over all of North America and I heard the Lord say “The entire western hemisphere needs to learn the way of the cross for what comes next.”

‘From this perspective, as I read through the text of this spiritual dream above, it speaks volumes to me about what’s to come next for the Judeo-Christian world. From a Kingdom perspective the BREXIT campaign is NOT just about upholding democracy for Britain, but it’s about preserving freedom for Kingdom sons to become all they were created to be for such a time as this. All of creation is waiting to see it, as the fullness of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit takes up residence on earth as He is in heaven (Romans 8:17-21). Therefore, any political leader who promises Brexit in order to support democracy only will not be able to complete the task because, in the fullness of the Kingdom, there comes an end to freedom for individuals to continue promoting the sinful human nature. Whether he knows it or not, a governing authority put in place as a Prime Minister responsible for carrying Brexit to its completion, is one put in place by God to facilitate the separation of goats and sheep (Romans 13, Matthew 25). Unless he understands how God is using him he will be thrown into utter confusion by thinking his highest goal is to ensure financial freedom for a Judeo-Christian nation; even if it means ensuring those who practice rebellion towards God are free to continue doing so.

‘Since I returned to Atlantic Canada I’ve had powerful visions from heaven about the New Jerusalem coming down from God through the UK and over to North America, for the sole purpose of bringing forth the fulfillment of His promises about Israel and the Jewish people. On the day of the Brexit referendum – June 23, 2016 – the Lord led me to go prayer walking on behalf of the UK and I saw in the Spirit an open heaven between Atlantic Canada and the heavenly realms over England. I saw the LORD stand up from His throne and applaud. I asked Him how to pray and He revealed to me that His plans lined up with another 23rd day described in the book of Esther (Esther 8 – 23rd day of Sivan). He led me to pray for the Hamans to be hung on their own gallows. Then He showed me it was a time for the Church to write new decrees, however we see fit. The goal is the same now as it was then: to defend His sovereign purposes for Israel and the Jewish people. The nations are redeemed, or not, through their willingness to line up with His plans accordingly. We need to pray for all our governing authorities to be used as facilitators for this cause: to bring forth new wine and oil related to His coming Kingdom and His will to be done on earth as He is in heaven.

‘In the face of all that, the key word that hits my spirit from this dream described above, is the word ‘SCROLL’. It speaks to me of the Great Scroll of Isaiah which was preserved as one of the most important Dead Sea scrolls and which, when translated into English, proves the veracity of the original King James Bible. The text of Isaiah in the original King James is almost word-for-word identical to the Great Scroll of Isaiah translated directly from Hebrew to English. Also, the word SCROLL in this dream speaks to me of Revelation 10:10. I’ve had literal experiences here in Atlantic Canada with this, hearing the voice of the seven thunders speaking from up over the UK to the free Judeo-Christian world. I’ve had visitations from the Lord as a result of having met Him in a powerful way at the Morning Room of Wesley’s Chapel, Bristol, UK. It’s like an open heaven from there to Atlantic Canada follows me around and I often hear the word “SCROLL”; as if this scroll described in Revelation 10:10 is originating from the ministry begun by the Wesleys in Bristol and London. There is something decidedly English about it all, as the English language was spread far and wide along with the distribution of the King James Bible, and English is now the world’s ‘lingua franca’ – the ‘go-to’ language for people of other tongues to have one common language in order to communicate.

‘I’ve made it a personal mission to pray for Nigel Farage to be transformed into a Kingdom son, so that Brexit will be used to point people to the coming Kingdom of God. Then the freedom that is so desperately being sought will be used to exalt above all else the Name of the Lord and His Word. That the Prime Minister in this dream above placed his head on the author’s shoulder, speaks of him resting his understanding on the Presence of the Kingdom of God in the life of the author, and on the truth that ‘the government will be on His shoulders’. (Isaiah 9:6). The Prime Minister in this dream is asking for understanding and support from the Kingdom of God to sustain our God-given freedom for the Judeo-Christian nations. He needs to be transformed into a Kingdom son to make it happen. He needs to learn what it means to take up the cross and follow Christ – first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. This is an anointing and mantle the Lord has given me to teach to the ‘entire western hemisphere’ but it currently appears that the darkness will get darker still before even Spirit-led, mature believers will agree to meet the Lord at the cross in a personal way.

‘Feel free to connect for the purposes of interceding for the Kingdom’s plans for Brexit to prevail. I have a site – Through Fire and Water – which the Lord continues to prompt me to rename ‘gloryofzioncanada.ca’. He has done a very hidden work from a Canadian perspective related to the cross, for the purpose of standing in the gap for both UK and USA.’

Maxine Phyllis, 27th May.

Personal Footnote:

Norris Point, Newfoundland, April 2008

Maxine’s message evokes strong personal connections for several reasons.

First, I well recall my first sightings of the other end of the ‘bridge’ upon flying over Newfoundland and Nova Scotia en-route to Toronto, as well as down to Florida for the Caribbean and inland to Arizona.

Also, within 10 miles of our home in East Hampshire are three Canadian war memorial sites. Our associated church of St Mary’s in Bramshott has a cemetery of over 300 graves of our Canadian allies fallen in the Great War (Alison Avery’s photos include those of Canadian Memorial planting of maple trees).

My earliest memory, however, is told in my 2,000th post in connection with my writing as well as sketching a short story which my class-teacher commended to the headmistress of my primary school. (Inspired by the motto “The Mountie always gets his man”, the hero received a medal from the young Queen Elizabeth for his bravery.)  And what’s more, as I blogged about that we were following the Netflix drama ‘When Calls The Heart’, which features the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Triple validation of the reality of my encounter with Jesus

APPENDIX TO PERSONAL TESTIMONY

A little time was needed to gain a fuller understanding of that awesome visitation – the absolute holiness of the Lord Jesus Christ in contrast to my personal sinful nature. No wonder I expected to die and was simultaneously convicted of my sin!

That encounter used two very personal aspects of my life to grab my attention, thereby validating the experience as real, not an imaginary one. Even more amazingly, both validations are directly related to the 1st and 2nd Advents!  Thus, they couldn’t fail to enhance my interest in End-Times and which had been launched a few years earlier by The Invisible Hand (described here).

The First Advent was the time when Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea about two thousand years ago. Hence, the four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and which start the church year.

The Second Advent is coming soon and is expected to begin in the city of Jerusalem.

FIRST VALIDATION

I inwardly ‘knew’ the heavenly visitor was indeed Jesus, and that the impressive action was a foretaste of his promised return, when He will come in all His power and glory.

The event reminded me of my favourite picture in mother’s Missal, or service book of the Roman Mass.  This gave the content of every Sunday service throughout the year with a diagram symbolising the theme for each service.  As a boy keen on astronomy I’d been fascinated by the picture for First Sunday in Advent. This depicted Jesus standing on the clouds over a burning earth in the midst of sun, moon and falling stars, indicative of events before his Second Advent!

The confirmation referred to above came almost as unusually. On a healing retreat years later, a minister told me God would show me something after lunch. Indeed, after lunch a stranger who’d been seated at my table confided that the Lord told her to show me something she greatly treasured.

christinclouds-lrgIt was a photo taken, it was claimed, from an aircraft over a thunderstorm. When developed, the photo bore an image of Jesus Christ, as though standing within clouds. However, the facial features were hazy, not defined. It was exactly like Jesus in my dream because I’d not seen His face.  (I recall dark, hazy clouds at the foot of the image. This one is published by Bible Probe.)

Upon seeing this photo my legs gave way – I couldn’t stand but fell into a nearby chair! My companion said I went so white she thought I was going to faint or fall.

Yet, just how did a stranger know to show me this photo?  I’d not divulged such a personal dream – she simply said, “It’s the Lord’s doing”.

SECOND VALIDATION

I was puzzled over the closing element of the dream-event, that is:  upon my reaching towards Jesus’ feet to grasp his robe, it turned into the branch of a Christmas tree!  So, when I tugged, a Christmas tree toppled over and its fairy fell off and onto the floor.

Weird?  Not really, because that spot by the window was where the family Christmas tree used to be erected. It was a corner closely associated with Christmas.

As a devout Catholic, my mother had told me about Jesus from an early age. When I painted pictures I would put a blue stripe at the top of outdoor scenes to represent heaven, as children did. But I’d also draw a Christmas tree in heaven as being Jesus.

Why? Not only had I associated all the wonder of Christmas with his birthday but I also heard an actor  on TV mention his name whilst looking at a small fir-tree. So in my childish way I took the actor at his word and would draw Jesus as a Christmas tree.  Hence, the dream changed him to match that image.

At its close, therefore, the dream-event signified the time had come to put away not only childish misconceptions but also all false teachings and replace them with absolute truth – the one who is the Truth in person.

Truly, the most fantastic Christmas present ever – one that’s daily an ever-present encouragement and help in every time of need, no matter how dire. Thank you Lord.

These events started in 1989 and culminated in 1995 with its prime confirmation. Yet more was to come!  Sixteen years later upon revisiting this story for the purposes of this blog, I was surprised by a couple more insights that dropped unbidden into mind. One was tantalising: could the street number of my childhood home (212) possibly be significant in pointing toward the coming year? That is, to 2012!  

Could that notion be true?  Such musing would be confirmed in a fascinating numerical manner at 2012’s first Christian conference we were to attend…Upon our arrival at the venue I was curious about distance driven from home. The car’s odometer was ‘212’ miles!

THIRD VALIDATION

Once again, timing proves crucial in presenting another objective confirmation!  Again, had I not been writing about the visitation I would have missed the crucial linkage!

Whilst writing installments of My Journey Into Freedom (Sept-Oct 2013) I inserted a report on something pertinent that happened at that time in the USA, as recounted in the previous post. This came as a ‘new revelatory word’ from the Lord to Revd John Kilpatrick and began at 2:22am. This too, is very interesting on two counts. Numerically, because my birthday falls on a 22nd. Orally, because that word is directly relevant to my dream visitation in referring to the angelic host as well as in closing with Luke 21:28, namely:

“But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand.”

My mother’s Missal for the First Sunday of Advent is shown below and notice how the scripture on page 69 links into my personal visitation and what pastor John brought.

Prophecy Update #3: once again Press echoes prophecy through soccer!!

Yet once again (previously re “fox” and “chessboard”) press headline repeats content of a prophetical word brought by Veronika West – and once again relating to football score (Confirmation of Prophetical Soccer refers).  She published this last night:

“GREATEST COMEBACK SINCE LAZARUS”

THIS HEADLINE WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION TODAY BY THE DAILY MAIL, AS I READ IT, “GREATEST COMEBACK SINCE LAZARUS”, IT MADE ME THINK IMMEDIATELY OF THE WORD I RECEIVED CONCERNING “LAZARUS AND THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND”!  [See Word; ”LAZARUS RAISED TO LIFE”…]

COULD THIS 4 GOAL FIGHT-BACK VICTORY FOR LIVERPOOL BE A PROPHETIC SIGN FOR OUR NATION AT THIS TIME??…!

Lazarus was raised to life after 4 days;…’Liverpool reach Champions League final after INCREDIBLE FOUR-GOAL FIGHT BACK AGAINST BARCELONA in football’s greatest upsets…!  [See Word; “FOUR DAYS”…]

Dr Lance Wallnau: Testing the spirits on prophetic words

Whilst Nina was happily chirping away last night at her choir’s rehearsal for Sunday at Farnham’s Vineyard church I took time out to watch a few short YouTubes. I spotted the one below featuring Dr Lance Wallnau and, although I’ve referred to him in a few blogs, I’m unfamiliar with him and any ministry he may be in. In fact, this Elijah Streams video describes him as ‘International speaker, business and political strategist’.

Steve Shultz, publisher of The Elijah List,  asks him about his rise to fame as a result of the pre-2016 campaigns for electing the next American President. Lance tells about the state-of-play between party politicians and evangelicals’ aspirations, and how he began to prophesy about Donald Trump winning that race.

So the discussion turns to the fine details of his getting the word about Trump being a “wrecking ball to demolish political correctness” and later recognising him as having a ‘Cyrus’ anointing. Among many snippets he tells about meeting Trump and seeing him  throw ‘the cat among the pigeons’ during the president’s national prayer breakfast by getting into the middle of the huge gathering and expecting people to come and lay hands on him in true Pentecostal style. No other President’s ever done it that way!

It’s an eye-opening insider’s account, and thus comes with my recommendation.

Moreover, as one moving in a relatively new gifting, Lance explains how he learned to test and enquire whether or not what he was getting was truly of the Lord (perhaps he’s read this blog’s Intro to Prophecy?).  In checking Isaiah 45 on king Cyrus as possibly applying to Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States, he tells Steve,

“You know what. The way that we know something’s of the Lord is by way of a multitude of significant coincidences in confirmation – but I’m thinking ‘This is going to go down like a rat sandwich!’ and no-one’s going to want this word!”

So Lance needed to check what his mentor Kim Clement or someone else was hearing, but he wasn’t available and only then did he hear the Lord telling him,

“You’ve got to hear for yourself!”

A prophetic word on the coming ‘bowls of the fury of God’

Now that Facebook can at last connect this blog’s Fb page with my previously unused personal profile, I’ve been pinning a few of its posts and hubs to its ‘wall’ or timeline by way of an intro’ to my writing upon Biblical and contemporary Christian prophecy.

Doing that reminded me of the difference between ancient and modern prophecy, which after due weighing and testing, provides a means of hearing from God before we arrive at the End-times foretold in scripture. Therefore, I mused upon when and how those two modes of hearing Him will converge in the run-up to the Millennium, when Jesus Christ returns bodily to reign and rule on earth. 

AND “Lo and Behold!” within a couple of days I get an email on that very subject and which reads as follows:

THE PREPARATION OF

THE THINGS TO COME

PROPHECY

Given to Leisa Ebere, April 8, 2019

“I say to you My People, that there is a stirring in the spirit realm where an open door of ‘the preparation of the things to come’ shows a glimpse of the rumblings of the Earth in this hour. As mentioned in My Word, in Revelation 16, through the actions of the inhabitants of the Earth,” says the Lord, “the unfolding and signposts of My Wrath come to be. For My judgement only comes as I give mankind over to their own sin; and then the days grow dark with evil, and the signs of destruction reveal themselves throughout the Land, Seas and Waterways.

“But I declare to you, My Remnant, that you shall be protected from this destruction, as you cry out to Me, for My purposes are yet to be fulfilled; as the redemption and harvest of the blind and the lost reaches momentum by My Spirit. As in the Seven Bowls of Judgement,” says the Lord, “MRSA has become a global issue, as this deadly bacteria has covered the earth and caused great pain and suffering,” says the Lord.

“Also, as with the Second Bowl,” says the Lord, “a bloodying of the oceans has occurred, and Red Tide Events are even now escalating across the waters of the Earth as the Algae’s poisons release devastating toxins into the seas.

“And just like the Third Bowl, the Earth’s Rivers and Streams have become contaminated with chemicals,” says the Lord.

“And similarly as with the Fourth Bowl,” says the Lord, “I have allowed an intense heat to scorch the Earth due to climate change and emissions of chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere; and this has caused great groaning and fear amongst the inhabitants of the Earth.

“In regards to the similarities of the Fifth Bowl,” says the Lord, “there is judgement being poured out onto America, as the positioning of high officials over the land and weather phenomena will cause economic downtown and darkness to come upon that country. This is due to the sinful actions of greed and callousness amongst its inhabitants.

“And also, like the Sixth Bowl being poured out; there is judgement being allowed to come upon the UK and Europe, due to pharisaical mindsets and perversity and uncleanness, as Eastern Kings (Arab Nations) have brought idolatry and terror upon many countries. This has caused the principalities of Witchcraft, Rebellion and Deception to conspire against the peoples of the Earth,” says God. “And like the outpouring of the 7th Bowl, a number of earthquakes and the falling of hailstones has begun to transpire in earnest upon the Earth.

“Beloved, I am slow to anger,” says the Lord, “but the darkness which has been caused by man’s sin has opened up the manifestation of such things. But I will stay the full execution of these judgments as My People bring a mighty harvest into My Kingdom, in the next seven seasons of My Spirit,” says the Lord. “Yet, I declare to you, that all arguing and divisions in the Body of Christ must be set aside,” says the Lord of Hosts, “and all focus must be set upon establishing My Righteousness, as My Glory brings about the Harvest of the Lost upon the Earth. Heed My Words for the time grows short,” says the Living God, “and your eyes must be fixed upon Me.”
