Intercessor’s vision of Heaven’s Council Meeting on UK

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this recorded on Sunday 2nd April by Ruth Grigg:

VISION OF A HEAVENLY COUNCIL MEETING ABOUT THE UNITED KINGDOM

I had been praying for the UK and the government etc. and I asked the Lord to give me strategies in how to pray more effectively for the nation.

In a vision, I started to see myself walking down a pathway. I was dressed in a white robe with jewels embroidered onto the robe, gold around the edges and carried a gold staff. I walked up to a mansion-type building and knocked on the door to a Council. Angels opened the doors and I walked up to another door and knocked. The door opened. I was shown to a seat near the front to observe the proceedings. I was told not so speak unless asked to, only to observe – I also scribed. [RB note: at Saturday’s mentoring day Dr Stone included this function in several operational modes of the prophetic gifting.]

I was in a court-room chamber, where the Council met (refc1). They were holding a meeting concerning the UK.

During the proceedings, Satan stood up and said he had plans for the UK, that he had rights and access because we had opened the doors for him.

Satan said he had plans to bring deeper darkness to this nation, so deep that we cannot get out or return to where we have previously been (2). He has plans to hem in the UK, surround us and pressurize us so that our nations conforms to others around us and looses our own identity. He said he has plans to remove Child Benefit and other benefits from families – to bring families into further poverty (3).

He also said:

He has plans to make housing and house-buying more difficult, almost impossible – causing more homelessness and stress on families.

He has plans to ruin and bring down the Health Service so it is more chaos and disorder.

He has to bring further and deeper divide within the churches over issues of sexuality and morality.

He has plans to allow and encourage all religions and cults to operate more openly and freely with endorsements from the government – all except Christ followers (4)

He has plans to confuse and nullify the morals and ethics of the youth and children in our nation.

He has plans to bring higher levels of stress and strife, by raising up ‘education’ and ‘business success’ on the alter of life – making them into gods – bringing with it heavy loses on health, and family life.

Then the Council Leader (God) stood up and asked the church – “What answer does The Church give?”

The Church stood up (seemingly weak and silent) and said, “We will pray.”

The Council Leader (God) asked the Lord what answer he gives?

Then the Lord stood up in the Council and said:

I will stir up my people to pray and intercede, fast and repent. I will call them out from hiding and cause their light to shine.

I will put my compassion and strength in their hearts so they will rise up and heal those who are broken and hurt and they will be lights on a hill (5).

I will raise up intercessors to stand on the wall and in the gaps to guard the nation (6), to close and open doors, to bind up and loose (7), to call for angelic help and to call for the army of God to rise up; and when they call on me, I will hear them and heal their land and their people (8). I will put my word in their mouth and they will speak out in truth and wisdom, faith, power and love, then they will decree the things I have spoken.

I will strengthen their armour and their sword (9); in the heat of the battle, they will not be burned; in the heat of the battle my angels will fight for and with them.

They will rise up and address their nation and when they call on me I will provide for their needs; they will see my grace and glory. Nothing shall defeat them because I am fighting for them (10).

Then I was asked to stand up and speak:

Ruth, what is your response?

My response was: I will do what the Holy Spirit leads me to do. I will pray and intercede. I will speak forth in truth and I will teach the nations.

This is where the vision ended.

Fulfilled Prophecies #19 – Britain’s shackles now shattered

Have you ever felt fetters fall away? The invisible, spiritual sort that satan shackles all those with who allow it a foothold to gain a grip upon their souls. The time that happened to me is etched upon my soul. Upon internally hearing, “Burn what you’ve collected – now!” I took articles from my life spent in occult study into the garden, put a match to them and repented. Immediately, I unmistakably felt heavy chains fall from both wrists! As in Charles Wesley’s glorious hymn ‘And Can It Be?’ – “My chains fell off, my heart was free. I rose, went forth and followed thee!”

Thus, the following two words circulated by UK Prophetic Words on this theme resonate deeply with me. Although 12 years apart, the timing seems significant (see footnote):

BREXIT and GREAT BRITAIN – THE SHACKLES HAVE BEEN BROKEN!

Kathy Laity (Hephzibah House of Strategic Prayer, Cornwall) Tues 28th March 2017

I’d been agitated all day (as had others on team here) but since midnight was really praying re Brexit. Immediately felt God say “DECREE don’t pray!”.

I started to decree “Brexit shall happen in the name of Jesus!”.

Immediately, I saw a massive sledgehammer slam down on a huge, thick chain link. I kept decreeing. Each time I did the sledgehammer fell. I saw the first link break, then became aware of another. Kept decreeing until it broke, then two further chains. At this point I saw they had been around the legs of a large male LION. Now I could see a thick iron collar, blindfold and muzzle. I kept decreeing. The iron collar opened and dropped off, as did the blindfold.

I could sense the lion’s anger and a roar building. The moment the muzzle fell away it roared mightily, leapt forward and grabbed the enemy, Satan, by the throat, shaking and dispatching it (rather like Aslan with the white witch). I kept decreeing but now the scene changed.

The lion had on a royal red robe, was wearing a crown and had a sceptre of authority. I knew it was releasing MANDATES. There was an immense sense of PEACE, ORDER, and AUTHORITY.

My sense throughout it all was that the LION was representing GREAT BRITAIN (as is often seen on the coat of arms) and that the enemy was responsible for the shackles. The lion’s STRENGTH on being released was immense.

*************************************************************
WENDY ALEC: VISION FOR GREAT BRITAIN 15th July 2005 – excerpts:

Then the Lord showed me a large lion – and He said – “This lion represents the nation of Great Britain” – And it was a shocking sight – for where the lion should have been filled out and sleek and gleaming – it was almost a skeleton – and its mane was barely visible – and its coat was covered in mange – and its roar which should have shaken the nations in its power and in its ferocity was strangled and barely audible. And the Lord said, “This represents both the glory of this nation at present and the state of My Church as a whole in Great Britain”. And I saw in great letters – the words – “THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN AND THE LION SHALL ROAR AGAIN.

And the Lord said – “Bring back My glory – Bring back My glory that your nation may once more walk in the glory of its destiny – and the Church may show forth My glory” – And the Lord showed me huge flourishing green tree that was planted in the European mainland – its huge trunk seemed to be PLANTED in BRUSSELS and the foliage had grown so dense that the trees branches and foliage had grown over the English channel and covered Britain in a great dark shadow and thousands of smaller offshoots and branches had taken deep root in Great Britain – and I saw the roots tangled and grown into London and then through the British Isles up all the way to Scotland.

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

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

And I said to the Lord, “Father – what does this mean?” And He said – “The spirits that led Europe into post-Christian decline – have invaded Great Britain over these past decades – and have infiltrated and overshadowed the nation with the same humanism and paganism and secularism – and yet Britain is still so blinded by her roots and her foundations that she is still declaring herself a Christian nation” – but the Lord says that – “She has been shackled by the enemy.” And I said “Lord what can break the shackles?”

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

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

“LIONHEART”.

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

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

And the lion’s roar by now had gained strength.

President Donald Trump and the “42” (part 2)

This valuable insight offered by Mark Davidson is highly significant in my humble opinion – and could support not only the idea of Britain and America as the prophesied ‘Tarshish’ (and he reinforces my remarks on Obama in another recent post), but also my blogging on the revival of our spiritual and political/commercial bond (here and here).

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

So Barack Obama, supposedly the forty-second person to be constitutionally elected president of the United States, is now a former president. He has been replaced by the next person to be president, Donald Trump.

In this earlier post I suggested a theory I heard years ago about the Bible’s use of the number forty-two and its seeming application to the leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States. Ancient Israel and Judah had a total of forty-two kings before changing form and losing their independence.

In the case of the United Kingdom, William the Conqueror was the first monarch of Britain in its current form and the current reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is the forty-second monarch.

And in the case of the United States, President Obama was supposedly the forty-second constitutionally elected person and that was going to be it for the United States in its current form…

Big Ben arises with continual ‘wake up’  

Mulling over the recent midnight theme, including the dream from o’er Pond, I’m struck by Saturday’s follow-up from Tony that may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will (see Telegraph link and Big Ben & Midnight – the dream to which Tony refers was flagged up in Visitation Time – I Am Coming With My Power Like Fire).

My Dreams and Visions

In August of 2016 I had the following vision.

I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile. Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged
The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.

It’s…

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…

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!

The man who preached the Gospel to President. (Senate Chaplain Barry Black at US National Prayer Breakfast.)

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

barryblack-senatechaplain(Washington, D.C.) — You absolutely have to watch this message.

All of it.

It is one of the most powerful, most compelling, most winsome and moving presentations of the Gospel of Jesus Christ I have ever heard delivered.

It was delivered at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday morning in Washington.

It was delivered by the Chaplain of the Senate to the President of the United States.

It was delivered to more than 4,000 government, business and religious leaders from all over the United States and from more than 160 countries around the world.

It was such an honor to be there, and it is something I will never forget.

Honestly, I’d never heard of retired U.S. Rear Admiral — who now serves as the Senate Chaplain — Barry Black before.

I’d heard of the Christian musical group, “Mercy Me,” and was so glad they were performing songs like, “I Can Only Imagine.” They were outstanding.

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.

Fulfilled prophecies #15: UK’s and USA’s identities and destiny

donald-trump-christianThe opening paragraphs below Monday’s front-page headline ‘I’ll make Brexit great’ got my brain sparking on all cylinders! (Online version here.)  It’s the Telegraph’s reporting on The Times interview of President-elect Donald Trump with Tory party MP and ex-leader of the Brexit campaign, Michael Gove (emphasis added).:

‘Britain and America will get a new trade deal “done quickly and done properly”, Donald Trump said on Sunday night as he promised he would help make Brexit great. The US president-elect praised Britain for voting to leave the European Union, saying: “People, countries, want their own identity, and the UK wanted its own identity”.

‘Mr Trump also disclosed that Theresa May, the Prime Minister, will visit him in the White House “right after” he is sworn in.’

It not so much that Trump trashes Obama’s ‘mobster-style’ threat, made during his visit to support ex-PM Cameron, to send Britain “to the back of the queue” in trade negotiations if we to vote to get out of the EU. That derisory arm-twisting from a ‘lame-duck’ Potus with a full two-term record of failed foreign policies was treated with the contempt it deserves and helped many to decide in favour of ‘Brexit’!

Rev Dr Sharon Stone, courtesy CIENo, that’s not the issue now. Trump’s incisive remark about the United Kingdom wanting our own identity tallies so closely with a four years-old prophetic word brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone. His remark demonstrates that, both nations’ new and radically different leadership that’s come into office through exceptionally unusual circumstances, IS ALIGNING WITH THE LORD’S STATED PURPOSES AND DESTINY FOR OUR NATIONS.

As with prophet Daniel’s declaration to Babylon’s king Nebuchadnezzar,

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding…” (Dan 2:2-21 NKJV)

Now, let’s examine the Prophetic Word on Hurricane Sandy that Sharon brought from the Lord on 3rd November 2012, in which I’ve emphasised pertinent parts.:

hurricane-sandy-night-view; courtsesy Weather Channel“I don’t want to talk about the hurricane only hitting New York – it hit the Caribbean, it hit New Jersey, it hit New York, it went on up into Canada. There were deaths everywhere and so we don’t downsize any of that. In matter of fact, its eye hit New Jersey but the greatest amount of damage was done in New York and I think the reason people put the emphasis on that is simply because that’s the financial district, that has the Statue of Liberty, a place of identity for the nation, a place of rule in the nation. And so that’s why I believe people’s focus is upon there, even though that’s not the only place that it touched…

“I only got to see it once in a while…and one time the Lord said, “The hurricane Sandy is a punctuation.”

“…and so when I would see it, one time it would look like a full stop with the eye in the middle…another time with it swirling it would look like the question mark, with the dot, and when I’d see it another time it was elongated and it looked like the exclamation mark with the dot on the bottom!

“And the Lord kept saying that this hurricane and these winds are ‘a punctuation’ – not  just in the US but a punctuation in the world. Now a type of punctuation means that it draws the line, and it brings a separation and there is an alteration after that, and this is what the Lord said,

“These are re-arranging winds and they’re changing the course of nations.”

“…This is a “re-arranging winds and a changing of the course of nations” and the Lord spoke this, and forgive me as I’m going to read some of this because I want to get the words right. The Lord said:

“The Old World’s time has cycled around again to become a New World (we’re part of that Old World, here in Europe: Sharon) to rewrite history, no longer a Constantine conversion that advances religion without Christ. Hidden winds of change have been developing on the inside of My people and they are now blowing change into the world. The western New World, particularly the USA, will enter accelerated crisis-shaking to hasten their journey to learn that I am their true resource and I am their defender. The USA has been a champion of freedom for much of the oppressed world, but you cannot represent freedom without representing Me, Jesus, Who is the provider and Who can bring sustainable protection to the nation.

“The Lord says,

“Parts of these winds that are blowing, part of these winds that are bringing a re-arranging, are blowing away what has confused nations of their identity.”

We’re not the only nation that has been in an identity crisis. I believe that many of our nations have had skewed identity and the Lord is saying this; He says,

“I will bring you out of what you have designed by your own thinking and by your own hands – listen to that! – that I may redesign it by My thoughts and My plans.”

SELAH!

2011 pivotal prophecy: “They’re setting up The Kingdom!”

FIVE years ago today, Tuesday 20 December 2011, I posted a copy of a private email as follow-up to this blog’s first posts as its contents had gone into the public domain. It tells of the unforgettable dream for which I was searching last week, as stated in the earliest version of #0-Pivotal Prophecies Coming Into Play. (Unable to find a copy of my account I resorted to quoting cross-references within this blog’s Library.)

I hope you will be able to take time reading this account, originally posted as ‘Father Let Your Kingdom Come’ and allow your imagination to follow it. Also, I’d draw attention to the remarks about a historic event as it has again resurfaced prophetically this year.:

A DREAM OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD BEING SET UP

‘An email of Monday 19 September 2011 submitted details of the dream, which I’d outlined to senior leaders of Winchester Vineyard Church before sending to the organiser of the 2011 Revival Alliance Gathering, Christen Forster.

‘The dream coincided with the Gathering’s second night and I later found it relates not only to foundational scriptures for the prophecies given over a year before (November 2010) but also to activities in the heavenlies at the time of the Gathering. They could also indicate what may happen fairly soon in the UK.

‘Christen agreed to the dream being posted upon the Revival Alliance Gathering website as Feedback under Prophecies & Testimonials.  [2016 update: links no longer available but extensive details may be read in David Pike’s Daibach-Welldigger blogspot.]

‘The email reads as follows:

Email to Christen Forster,  Monday, September 19, 2011                                          Subject: Revival Alliance Gathering, Westminster, London 1-3 Sept 2011

YOUR KINGDOM COME

Nina and I had booked early for the Gathering but were unable to attend. Yet I’m grateful the Lord gave the following on Saturday before the day’s meetings started:

Sat 3 Sept:                                                                                                                     

Am in an open-plan, modern office environment overlooking a town centre. Upon glancing out of one side’s extensive windows I’m amazed to see a large white cube flying very low over nearby buildings! (It’s about the size of a Hercules transport plane.) Watching, I see a few more similar cubes follow and fan out in different directions.

Then I look from a different quarter’s aspect to see where they’re coming from and notice this view is from a much higher floor and over a different location! Then, a couple of cubes hover and discharge some cargo, which floats down to settle on the ground – rather as furniture vans deposit items outside a house.

However, I’m seeing into a room being set up, as though the building itself is invisible! A large wooden table and its several chairs are already there as white porcelain bathroom furnishings descend, but remain hanging in space!

In a flash I understand what’s happening and, without thinking, hear myself comment aloud, “They’re setting up The Kingdom!”

Someone else watching disparagingly quips, “Oh, that’s your perspective”.

Again I’m surprised by my immediate, unconscious retort, “I studied perception at Uni!” (ie. in physics and in psychology, and am thus making a well-informed comment.)

A sudden urgency comes upon me to dash home with this news. Jumping into a car I find my normal route out of the building diverted and a huge vehicle tries to collide with me. Dodging that I drive up a slip road onto a choked road but find this very basic car becomes seriously underpowered.

So I get out to walk yet find all hard paving has turned into lush green grass of wide-open meadows. The congested road’s gone and I’m sliding down a well-worn grass slide to then run, or move, much faster than I can really run across an extensive area. I head a few dozen feet above the land, as though in a glider, and some very large object or person rushes from the left to block my path. Totally unfazed, I deliberately collide into it and it smashes into oblivion without halting or affecting my movement.

On the nearby horizon an unusual low building looms into view but, as I approach this destination, the alarm clock goes off!!

An initial interpretation came with great excitement in view of several revival meetings this month. I believe the Lord gave the above heading for my note of this lucid dream.

All this needed weighing BUT I didn’t expect confirmation and more insights not only in connection with the Gathering itself but also with the prophetic word reported at the Gathering’s Inception Meeting in Nov 2010!

Sun 4 Sept:

At Winchester Vineyard Church’s briefing on Sunday evening one of the attendees described the repentance of leaders at the Gathering. My spirit leapt in knowing this connected into that dream’s bathroom furnishing! (It’s symbolic of cleansing through repentance and forgiveness.)

In the dream, the bathroom appeared after table and chairs were already in place, which may mean a meeting place with purpose and authority. Then came a personal insight spoken as though from Holy Spirit, indicating only those open to Him can perceive and understand the Kingdom. Also, whatever is being set up is not within an obvious structure but fully exposed to those with ‘eyes to see’. (Perhaps, church ‘outside the walls’?)

Only later did I realise why the dream is directly connected to the Gathering. That’s because the setting was in two offices in separate locations (Reading and Croydon) where I’d worked and which came under the authority of central Dept of Environment, then located in Marsham St, as is Emmanuel Church!  [The venue for the Gathering.]

Thus, I believe the dream’s meaning is relevant to the Emmanuel Church Revival Alliance event and its proceeding out into the wider Church.

Incidentally, having noted the dream under the header ‘Your Kingdom Come’, I later learned that’s the same title of the following week’s healing service in Winchester led by the Gathering’s member absent in the Ukraine – Randy Clark!

Mon 5 Sept:                                                                                                        

Happened to ‘google’ Revival Alliance and discovered website about the Gathering and read its Inception Meeting’s Report and the associated prophetic word.  I was struck especially by the latter’s,

‘It is time to build a house for me to dwell in, God who even the heavens cannot contain, will dwell in a house whose walls are the Holy Spirit’.

That’s a near description of what was in the dream, for I could see as though through invisible walls into rooms. Even so, there was a definite sense of some kind of structure without my being able to ascertain its nature. Could this indicate the invisible power and work of Holy Spirit?

However, upon checking the quoted reference to Ezekiel 42:15-19 (details of the prophet’s vision of the temple) the translations to hand imply that the walls will be material, not immaterial. YET, the dream truly fits the scripture because, as Christen Forster explained to me: “ … in those verses you will see the word “side” (as in the King James), but the word is actually “ruach”, which is wind, spirit or breath. As the winds traditionally had four directions it has been made into “sides” in English. But more literally it says, “he measured the east wind” … hence Spirit.” [It is Strong’s number 7307, which cannot be construed as ‘wall’.]

A second item from the Report is suggestive of the dream’s closing half. It’s Tim Eldridge’s reference to Paul Revere’s preparation to alert an alliance and, hence, the urgency of spreading the news at top speed – his renowned Ride into American history

Thurs 8 Sept:                                                                                                              

Then came an intriguing connection to the 14 years break in revival activities in UK, and when re-starting work on the Temple in Jerusalem, as referred to in the Report and at the Gathering.

The Lord prompted me to dig into my library for a book, The Heart of The Temple.  Quickly, I spotted in the Foreword’s first page (by Jennifer Rees Larcombe):

“How did this passion for the Temple begin for you?”

“The seed was planted in my heart fourteen years ago”, she replied!!

‘PS: where else have we read about fourteen years? It was the period Apostle Paul spent in preparation before his missionary trips to the Gentiles (see Gal 1:11-2:2).’

God’s GPS#2: the Lion roars victory for 2016 is not over yet!

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

First thing Thursday 8th December I just had to blog EU ‘Remoaners’ Thrashed and Trashed in Parliament and use a specific image, as right. It was about the previous evening’s astounding 5 to 1 voting victory in the House of Commons in support of Brexit and PM May’s plans for implementing Article 50.

Three interesting confirmations of that lion image were to follow:

1st – Whilst walking downstairs around the house my wife had a flash vision (eyes open) of a profile of a lion’s head, rather like the above image but without any flags.

2nd – Dave Hood contributed that evening a detailed comment ‘Let The Lion Roar’ upon his learning of that outcome: ‘As I thought of this, rejoicingly, I became quietened and it was then I heard, in that ..quiet .. I heard a single lions, single roar…….’ He submitted a separate email relating to what the Lord had shared with him on the Lion Lord some years ago.

3rd – Lana Vawser published on Saturday:

I HEARD HIM ROAR “LOOK IT IS THE ‘LAST MINUTE’ VINDICATION VICTORY…2016 IS NOT OVER YET!!!

Lion Roars - Credit GodTVToday I had a vision where I saw the Lion of Judah ROARING and as He roared, out of His mouth came the ROAR filled with the words

“IT IS THE VINDICATION VICTORY!!!!”

His ROAR SO LOUD and SO POWERFUL, mountains could have crumbled in a second. NOTHING stands against Him and NOTHING could stop Him.

As His ROAR continued I heard the words:

“Many of you My people, feel like you will leave 2016 DEFEATED, but I am ROARING over you “LOOK IT IS THE LAST MINUTE VINDICATION VICTORY!!!” STAND TALL My people, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE, for as you STAND IN ME, you will see My VINDICATION VICTORY manifested in your lives. You will NOT leave 2016 DEFEATED. 2016 is NOT OVER YET!!!! Do not DOUBT the “ELEVENTH HOUR” shift to bring VICTORY and VINDICATION. For in the “ELEVENTH HOUR” of 2016, I will SUDDENLY THE CHAINS of 2016 and you will cross over into 2017 with HOPE RENEWED with HIGH HOPES and REFRESHED in your different displays of My MANIFESTED VINDICATION VICTORY in your life, to meet your “FINALLY MOMENTS” in 2017.”

“Lay down the “not understanding of 2016” and WORSHIP ME!!!! Lay down the disappointments, the hurts, the pain of 2016 at My feet and watch My “ELEVENTH HOUR VINDICATION VICTORY!!!!”

“The manifestation of Exodus 14:14 will be seen in the ELEVENTH HOUR of 2016 RAISING YOUR HOPES IN ME for 2017!!! MANY of you will SEE in the ELEVENTH HOUR of 2016 how I have been fighting for you and decreeing your VICTORY all through 2016 when you thought I had forgotten or you had been passed by. Surprises will MANIFEST as you PRESS IN and REST in Me in the ELEVENTH HOUR of 2016!!”

“The LORD is fighting for you! So be still!”” (Exodus 14:14)
