Time to take a stand against fascism of ‘Christophobia’

First, let’s recall a prediction that applies to everybody no matter who, because it comes from the one who is The Spirit of Prophecy (Revelation 19:10). Thus it’s true information about our personal post-mortem state of play:

“I tell you my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. Be afraid of him who, after killing the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him…I tell you, whoever acknowledges Me before men, I will also acknowledge him before My Father in heaven and the angels of God. But who disowns Me before men will be disowned before My Father in heaven and the angels of God. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven!” (Luke 12:4-10 with Matthew 10:32-3 NIV)

Having no time for Antichrist spirit’s influence within politics I admire anyone attempting to practise and apply their faith within government. Although I don’t support his policies I’ve noticed Tim Farron’s evangelical faith wobble under frequent vicious attacks by reprobate souls within his party and the media (Stop banging on about my faith). So I have huge admiration for his decision announced last night:

“To be a political leader – especially of a progressive liberal party in 2017 – and to live as a committed Christian, to hold to the Bible’s teaching, has felt impossible for me.

“I seem to be the subject of suspicion because of what I believe and who my faith is in. In which case we are kidding ourselves if we think we yet live in a tolerant, liberal society. That’s why I’ve chosen to step down as leader of the Liberal Democrats.” (Telegraph, emphasis RB.)

Were Tim a Muslim, he’d have been safe because the nampy-pamby brigade would have been silent through fear of criminal prosecution under hate speech and ‘Islamophobia’. In my opinion, churches should start lobbying government to introduce the crime of ‘Christophobia’ – ie. all expressions of hatred against Christians and their beliefs.

But that brigade think they can get away with intimidating and persecuting anyone who believes in Jesus Christ and His true teachings. (That is, REAL Christianity, not the oxymoronic concept of thinking it’s ok to be LGBT-etc and disobey scripture and Jesus’ commands. Such confused folk think Jesus has changed His mind – like the Muslim deity abrogates its teaching – and permits disciples to follow Him, even to expect to be ‘married’ in ‘church’ – ie. an apostate one!). Poor lost souls – acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord means doing what He says. He strongly warned them that many who call Him ‘Lord’ won’t be allowed into His Kingdom simply because they choose not to follow his instructions, as told in the previous post by my dear namesake.

Cyber-‘Archbishop Cranmer’ covers Tim’s news with a denunciation of failures to support him by fellow believers in the LibDems and by Archbishop Justin Welby’s lamenting too late – see It’s not that Christians can’t lead political parties; it’s that Evangelical Christians can’t lead the Liberal Democrats. Blogger Adrian Hilton concludes,

‘Tim Farron is indeed honourable and decent, and he has honourably and decently concluded that it is not possible to be a Christian and lead a political party in the modern era (not, as the Archbishop of Canterbury states, that “he can’t be in politics”). Yet a Christian leads the Conservatives. A Christian leads the DUP. A Christian led Ukip, and Labour, and the SDLP and the UUP. But these Christians tend to hold a view of their faith which coheres with the majority of their party: some are more secular-liberal; others more orthodox and robust. What Tim Farron has established is not that it’s impossible to be a Christian and a Liberal Democrat, but that it’s not possible to be an Evangelical Christian and lead the Liberal Democrats. It’s an important distinction which appears to have escaped the journalistic commentary on this matter.

But here’s a thing. If, as the Archbishop of Canterbury states, the media and politicians have questions to answer over Tim Farron’s forced resignation for daring to think and believe differently on abortion and homosexuality, do not the media and bishops have questions to answer over Philip North’s forced resignation for thinking and believing differently on the ordination of women? Does his treatment not stem from the same totalitarian intolerance of theological difference, and form part of the same drive to impose a kind of gender-sexuality moral uniformity?‘ (Emphasis mine.)

A couple of days ago Tim Stanley’s opinion piece It Has Become Politically Toxic To Be A Christian (‘premium’ content) was published in which he says,

‘I’m writing in response to anger at the DUP coming to the rescue of Theresa May. As a Catholic, I should be flattered by the liberals’ righteous fury: the Protestant DUP are the stuff of sectarian nightmares. But I notice that far more has been written about the DUP’s views on sexuality than their views on the Pope. They have failed the modern religious test, which is to say they have the cheek to still believe in God in 2017…

‘(Tim Farron) was probably inclined to ignore the question because it is, strictly speaking, irrelevant. Like the vast majority of Christians, Tim is constitutionally liberal: he doesn’t want to tell others how to live, he just wants the freedom for everyone to live in peace.

‘But that’s not good enough now. You can’t simply tolerate. You must celebrate. If you don’t, there’s no place for you in politics…

‘One might ask why the religious ethics of Belfast matter at all: social issues are a devolved question. But when the DUP marched into the limelight, liberals saw a chance to attack their biblical literalism and reaffirm that it is they – not the rednecks in the pews – who define what is and isn’t acceptable in 21st-century Britain.

I’m amazed that after the last few days the DUP are still willing to help the mainland out. They’ve been subjected to every “violent paddy” stereotype going, including from socialists who have an otherwise rosy view of the IRA…

‘The frustrating thing is that very few liberals are prepared to meet religious folk where they are. Arlene Foster, leader of the DUP, says one reason why she won’t soften her position on gay marriage is because of the “vicious” abuse she’s received for it.

Britain’s social divisions are thus accentuated by a refusal to acknowledge not only that people have other opinions but that they have the right to hold those opinions.’ (Emphases mine.)

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Taking another tack: a year after the murder of Jo Cox MP and in honour of her proud independence and nonconformity in raising difficult issues for government, the senior editors of the Guardian and the Telegraph met to discuss and further the freedom of the press in investigating those who abuse their positions of power. Although of differing persuasions, both editors had no hesitation to unite in standing up for George Orwell’s insight (author of the futuristic fable of fascism, 1984):

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they don’t want to hear.”

This means freedom of speech to express one’s opinion, whether or not others may hold different, legitimate views.

REMEMBER, FREEDOM OF BELIEF, CONSCIENCE & SPEECH DOES NOT APPLY TO CHRISTIANS WHO RUN FOUL OF OFFICIALDOM, MEDIA AND LGBT BIGOTRY – for examples of many cases visit Christian Concern and The Christian Institute.

EG. Felix Ngole is a Christian student who has been removed from his university social work course after commenting on his personal Facebook page in support of biblical teaching on marriage and sexual ethics. He writes, “I was thrown off my master’s course in social work because I expressed the bible’s teaching on sexual ethics, on Facebook and was told that my beliefs made me unfit to practise as a social worker. With help from the Christian Legal Centre, I tried to get the decision reversed but Sheffield University refused. Even before I had finished my course, I was effectively ‘barred from office‘. I had to challenge this decision, because freedom is at stake. And with CLC support, we went to the High Court. I praise God that the High Court agreed that Sheffield University’s decision could be scrutinised. Felix now asks, “Will you join me in standing for free speech?”

We know from BBC Watch how the badly biased BBC always blames Israel for anything in the Middle-East (see 6-Day War). The once distinguished corporation has thus become unreliable as a source of news and many morally deficient programmes. Therefore, it’s no surprise to learn about satan’s spirit of mockery presiding there, as shown via the once respected and intelligent presenter John Hymphry’s remarks about Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (BBC Mocks Pro-marriage Pro-life Views). Haughty smirks and laughter will vanish when finding he’s not acknowledged in heaven; not even getting a “Depart from me you who practise lawlessness”?

To return to some sanity read the CI’s overview Evangelicals Defend DUP, which briefly covers the link on the DUP at the close of this blog’s Fulfilled Prophecies #21.

In view of yesterday’s word on A Holy Shaking for London and the news of Tim Farron’s resignation perhaps it’s no coincidence that Kensington’s dreadful towering inferno was dubbed in one paper today as ‘Hell On Earth’ (as herein)!!

SO it’s well-nigh time we Christians stand up against the bigotry of our adversary’s fleshly cohorts for, as scripture foretells, they’re on the losing side! May each and every one of them be blessed with their own ‘Damascus road’ experience of meeting the living Christ.

General election result may be a blessing in disguise!

Thank you once more to David Chapman for permission to publish his well-considered points. (See also readers’ comments on Brief Post-election Reflections): 

SOME REASONS WHY THE ELECTION RESULT MAY BE A BLESSING IN DISGUISE.

I want to comment here, for what it is worth, that I thought Mrs May’s call for a General Election was good timing, and still do.

However, in the first few weeks I wondered why they seemed to be so ‘inactive’.  The Conservatives did not wake up to their task for at least two weeks.  By that time though, we were aware it was to be all about a ‘Theresa May’ Campaign and less of a Conservative Campaign.  (If our enemy cannot put us down he will seek to ‘puff us up’). And Mr Corbyn was beginning his march into the hearts of many. Mistake number one.

That was clearly a big mistake by the campaign planners on her Team, and if we understand it aright, those two have now accepted responsibility and resigned.  But, Mrs May herself also failed to sufficiently include her Cabinet Ministers in advising on the Campaign. We hope she has learned a key lesson from that. Mistake number two.

Also, adding in at the last minute the so called “dementia tax” was an almost disastrous decision – again apparently at an advisers behest.  Mistake number three.

It can only have been the volume of prayer from the many who prayed, especially in small groups, and in their two’s and three’s across the land, who helped to secure a ‘victory of sorts’ for the present Government, and for the Brexit talks starting very soon. (Apparently the loss of only a further seven seats would have seen a change of Government).

Nevertheless, for a variety of reasons below, at this early stage of the aftermath and while the ‘dust’ still settles, it seems the final outcome may well serve the UK best.

  1. The current Brexit Team remain in place. Despite all the other valid concerns over internal problems, settling this issue is the number one priority for the future foundation of the UK.
  2. There is a potential 5-year term in which to settle that issue, and begin to re-build the UK’s economy, based on Free-Trade arrangements with Europe, to especially rebuild with Commonwealth countries, and also on a world-wide basis.
  3. Northern Ireland is vital to the Westminster programme and agenda, with their likely righteous and just input, and the Government needing to heed their stance on key issues. (The timing of a breakdown in agreement for devolved Government in Northern Ireland from its Stormont base could not be more poignant, in hindsight).
  4. Northern Ireland could well be feeling more ‘protected’ from the calls for a ‘unified Ireland’ based upon being outside the UK, as well as being now certain of retaining free movement of people within the whole of Ireland (no ‘harsh’ borders internally).
  5. Scotland now have a ‘direct line’ to Government with its 12 Conservative MP’s, with their leader keen to see Free-Trade negotiations a success within the EU talks. This effectively rules out staying in the Single Market, as that limits the areas of Free- Trade elsewhere. (Their leader’s comments appear ‘double-sided’ on her stance, but it seems she is basically backing the Referendum decision to Leave the EU. She knows the Government want a Free-Trade agreement with EU anyway).
  6. Scotland’s potential Independence referendum is now put on hold until at least after the Brexit deal is finalised, as support for its Independence Party (SNP) was the big ‘loser’ in Scotland from its previously exalted position.
  7. Nett result for us all? – closer ties within the UK; inter-dependence for all in Britain, shoring up the Union!
  8. Labour policy on Brexit is that staying in the Single Market (originally the Common Market) is not possible (John McDonnell said this on the Andrew Marr show, I seem to recall).

[So if we add together the percentage of the votes for political parties who hold that we should exit the Single Market, it is over 80% of the voters!  If we are to trade freely with other countries around the world, we have to leave the SM as at present we have to abide by EU agreements with those countries they have agreements with! 

The SM also effectively restricts us to trade on a Free of Taxation basis ONLY with the Member countries of the EU.  The SM  REQUIRES free movement of GOODS, SERVICES, PEOPLE, and CAPITAL within all Member Countries – as if we are one Nation State! – so NO control of our Borders.]

  1. Proper plans for immigration controls can now be made for all UK borders.
  2. The Conservatives will have to become more socially supportive. It is clear Conservatives will have to modify their Manifesto pledges of reducing financial support for the ‘grey haired brigade’, as well as needing to review benefits for the youth, such as university fees, giving more NHS support etc. and for those who genuinely financially cannot cope, combined with the principle of ‘helping people help themselves’.
  3. As Conservatives do not want a Labour Government they are unlikely to raise a challenge to Mrs May’s leadership until well after Brexit is complete!
  4. Majority Parliamentary Parties (Cons and DUP) are favourable towards Israel.

(Whilst clearly Israel don’t get everything ‘right’ – from our perspective, it remains true that ‘whoever blesses them, God blesses – and conversely, if we don’t.  I would much rather have the blessings! so see this as a real plus. The DUP are clearly favourable to Israel and the Jews, with a strong Protestant base of MP’s in their Party).

Others will have their own interpretations, and time will prove or disprove the above, but I wanted to at least provide some areas of hope for this new Administration, and its make-up.

Charles Shamp #1 of 3: Urgent prophetic words on UK’s situation

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

(The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link).

Suzanne Payne writes.:

This is a long but very significant, urgent and important prophetic word relating to the current situation in England with terrorism, Brexit and Theresa May. This is from a video Charlie Shamp posted on his Facebook page today; do listen if you can; I’ve transcribed most of it:

CHARLIE SHAMP – 4th June 2017

Charlie speaks about the Word he gave for England in Dec 2016 (see below at #3), about how it was a season of contention in the realm of the spirit (for the heart and soul of the nation). Before any of the attacks happened, the Lord showed Charlie on 11 Dec 2016 that there was going to be a season of contention in the realm of the Spirit, but that after the BREXIT was over with, after England comes out of the EU, there is going to be a cutting of those ties, and the Lord showed him there’s going to be a beast that was going to try to come out of Brussels, and this beast is going to be cut off: the spirit of terrorism, and He said that the spirit of terrorism, connected with Islam, is also connected in with the EU.

And as England and the UK breaks from the EU, there’s going to be a SEVERING of all ties with that and God is going to HEAL THE LAND.

And the Lord gave him a word concerning Theresa May (see below at #2) on May 10th that Theresa May is going to bloom in May, and that in June she’s going to shine like a star.

Charlie shares that he has a real heart for the UK, he has travelled across the UK and his heart is breaking but he realises what is coming. He wants to tell the UK to stay strong right now; the Lord has already revealed what the cause of this is. The cause of the terrorist attacks is because of the BREXIT. The enemy does not want the people of England, the people of the UK to come out of the EU. But the Lord told them in December when he released the Word, that there would be contention in the realm of the Spirit, and that it was all based upon the BREXIT, but when the UK comes out of the EU and there’s a breaking, that season of contention is going to be over. Charlie said in December 2016 that the enemy was going to come for the gates and he was going to come for the heart of England. But the lion is going to roar.

This is a season that the UK is in contention but June is going to be a time of Theresa May shining. This Word about her May is very important because God has positioned her, and the enemy is not going to be able to move here out of her place; the Lord has set her there and she’s a watchman over the nation. And the Lord is going to use her. The Bible says a three-cord strand is not easily broken and the Lord told Charlie that He is going to link Theresa May, the Queen and the UK together, and He’s going to break and sever the tide of terrorism. Charlie then reads this Word…continue reading at #2.

Charles Shamp #2 of 3: Theresa May will shine like a star

NOTE – This is the second part of a longer post published on 6th June by UK Prophetic Words and which may be read in its entirety at Urgent Word about England, Terrorism, Brexit, Theresa May, The Lion of Judah is Calling You To ROAR. (The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link).

Continuing from #1, Charlie expands upon the serious spiritual contention and warfare over the Lord’s will for Britain, expanding upon Theresa May’s role therein (see also post-election comment below and subsequent posts):

A Prophetic Word for the UK: MAY WILL SHINE LIKE A STAR – 10th May 2017

“May will bloom in the month of May. I have given her grace to run her race. She is a diamond in the royal crown. She has been sent and set in her place by me to help the Queen and the United Kingdom. Her legacy has been set in stone, she will not be moved or removed. In June she will shine bright for the world to see!”

The Lord gave me a verse out of Isaiah for Theresa May, the Queen, and the United Kingdom:

“Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.”

Charlie then says I want you to get this because I feel it so strong in my spirit. God is doing something and he’s going to sever the tide, this root of religion that is of Islam that is coming out of the UK right now. And God is going to marry you again. AS the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall God rejoice over thee.

I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Isaiah 62:3-7

Charlie continues: The Lord told me that Theresa May has been sent and set by the Lord as a watcher over the crown and the United Kingdom for the Queen. She will not fail, but will be faithful and finish the course. She is a diamond and a bright star that will shine for the world to see. The United Kingdom has been sealed for the BREXIT, it will come to pass.

I don’t care what the enemy tries to do, even over the next several weeks. There is a turning of the tide, there is a blessing that’s coming, and when the enemy comes in like a flood, God is going to raise up a standard. And I want to tell all my friends, those that I love in England,  that God has sealed the UK for the BREXIT, and the enemy is trying to put fear on the people, in order to try to draw them back in, to that beast, that beast out of Brussels. But the Lord says you have to cut and sever the root of religion.

And I’m telling you right now, I’m praying for you England, I’m staying in constant communication with some of those I’m close with over there, but this is a time that the UK is going to shine. This is a time that Theresa May is going to shine in June, and it’s going to be overwhelming after this election, and there’s going to be a wave of favour that’s going to come.

The BREXIT is going to happen, the enemy cannot stop it, England/the UK is coming out of the EU, God has already said it, the scroll has already been released … I said it in 2015 in England when I was ministering in Norwich … I saw in the spirit that God was going to link the US and the UK together, and that as the Lion roars the Eagle was going to fly. We said that as the lion roars in freedom in the UK and there’s a changing of the government, there’s a shifting of the freedom of the lion roaring, that at the same time there was going to be something that was going to happen in America where the Eagle was going to come back and it was going to begin to soar and fly and we said that in 2015.

… And then in December we released the Word (see #3). I’m telling you what’s happening right now in England is the root of religion, of Islam is being pulled out of the country, and BREXIT is happening, and the enemy is trying to fight right now, with his last breath. And we saw this in December … while I was staying on the Island of Mull, I had a night vision, the day before the US election, I had an encounter where I saw a man walking through the land, and I said Lord who is that man? and He said that’s My church in England, that’s My people in England, that’s My church in the UK; those are My people. And suddenly there was a root, a root of religion, a root that came out of the ground, and it wrapped around the man, and it was like a snake, it came and wrapped around the body of the man, and I said Lord what is that? He said that’s the root of religion, He said it’s two fold, a two fold religious root. And this root had tentacles on it. I said Lord what is this two fold root of religion and tradition? He said it’s the root of religion and tradition that makes My people be quiet and silent when the enemy is destroying them. And He said it’s a root of religion that is trying to suffocate them.

And as I saw this, the root went and wrapped around the mouth of the man, and began to suffocate Him. And I said Lord, how can we stop this? And the Lord said to me, He said that it’s Matthew chapter 3 … And I’m telling you England it is not a time to be silent, it is a time to STAND UP and ROAR. The people of England, the people of the UK, it’s time to STAND UP and begin to DECREE and DECLARE, and begin to ROAR. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is calling you to ROAR right now.

The enemy is trying to come in and to take the heart of the country, and unless you ROAR, unless you ROAR, that enemy’s trying to come and he’s going to take your heart. And I’m telling you the Lord wants to release the Lion Heart of God, the Lion Heart of the Lord. And the Lord told me that it was Matthew chapter 3, and He said it’s verse 10 and 11: And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the tree therefore every tree therefore that beareth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Ghost and in fire.

And the Lord spoke to me and said that the people of England are going to be baptized in the fire of the Holy Spirit; there’s a fresh baptism for the church in the UK OF THE FIRE OF God, that as they GO and PRAY, and they begin to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, that the AXE is going to be LAID at the ROOT of the tree of RELIGION and TRADITION, it’s going to be laid at the ROOT of ISLAMIC TERRORISM, and that root is going to be PULLED OUT of the country.

And the Lord said to me to pray for you tonight, all my friends in the UK …the SPIRIT of FEAR is trying to come in to PULL you BACK from the BREXIT. And the tentacles, and that beast that’s in BRUSSELS is trying to PULL you back in, to NOT BREAK AWAY. But I want to release strength, I want to release courage, and I want to release this fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire to you tonight, and as you go to pray, that boldness like a LION is going to come upon you, and you’re going to begin to prophesy, you’re going to begin to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and God is going to cause the UK to to shine like a bright star… God is going to cause England to be broken away from the root of religion. As the church rises up and begins to roar, the Lion of God is going to come out of your mouth, and its going to destroy this root of religion, and this root of Islamic terrorism that’s trying to come into the country, and the Lord’s speaking to you even right now as you’re watching, that the fire and the power of God is going to come out of you. And the Lord told me, He said to me, ‘Son, it has to be a people that are from the land that are going to begin to speak to the root of religion’ …

Charlie then shares about having had his DNA tested and being 67% from England the Lord told him that’s why he as so much passion for England, and that he needs to stand up and mobilise the people and tell them that that this is a season to not be silent, that it was already foretold that this was a time of contention in the realm of the spirit but the Lord says this too shall pass, and that as we link together in the spirit of unity, God is going to command the blessing upon the UK, He’s commanded a blessing upon the BREXIT, He’s commanded a blessing upon the people of God, and this is going to be a time of rejoicing, a time of the presence of God, it’s going to be a time, where the enemy has come in like a flood, God is going to raise up the standard in the Body of Christ, He’s going to raise up the standard in the UK, and we’re charging forward. I’m telling you, the Lion of the tribe of Judah is going to roar. And the Lion is roaring, and we’re not backing down, we’re not stepping back. We’re not going to faint or run in fear. No we’re going to stand up and decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and the root of religion is going to be severed by the axe of God…And the signs and the wonders are going to begin to be manifested in the nation.

Charlie then goes on to speak more (around 23 minutes) about what we’re going to see in this move of God in the UK. But it all starts with this Matthew chapter 3, verse 10 and 11, that there is a baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire … I’m telling you there is a shifting that’s happening right now, and we’re not drawing back into fear. We’re moving forward in faith and victory and power, and the enemy has no place, he can’t stop what’s coming, there’s a revival, there’s a move of God, there’s an outpouring, there’s the glory that’s coming on the UK, the presence of God is going to move like we’ve never seen before across those Islands, the fire is going to burn, God is going to change the government, God is moving back into the country, the Lord has even saved the Queen, and put the Queen in a place where she is not going to leave this earth until the fullness of this BREXIT thing happens. I’m telling you right now, God has set and sealed her as well. She’s a praying one, she loves Jesus, she loves the Lord, and she’s praying for the country. And we’re standing in unity, and the power of the Holy Spirit is going to cause us to break away from this BEAST that’s out of Brussels, and we’re going to march forward into the things of God, and that root of religion that I saw on the man is going to be broken and severed, and we’re going to run into the freedom and we’re going to run across the land with the fire of God, so Father in the Name of Jesus I pray for my friends in the UK, across England right now, and the enemy is trying to bring discouragement, trying to break their faith and break their persistence and break their prophetic edge. Charlie then comes against that in prayer and releases the fire of the Holy Ghost upon everyone watching the broadcast, and in England for intercession, for the prophetic courts of God, for moving into the council rooms of God and decreeing and declaring the Word of the Lord over the nation …

Charles Shamp #3 of 3: Prophecy on the Brussels Beast and the UK

NOTE: This is the last part of a longer post published on 6th June by UK Prophetic Words which may be ready in its entirety at Urgent Word about England, Terrorism, Brexit, Theresa May, The Lion of Judah is Calling You To ROAR. (The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link):

Continued from #2:

WORD FOR THE UK – delivered at Bungay, England, 11th December 2016

(click for video of Charlie’s carefully worded address)

The Lord showed me that there was a beast that was on Brussels, like a lion that wanted to devour England and the UK; a lion that wanted to devour. And the Lord started showing me that the enemy would love for you to be passive concerning the BREXIT, and allow the passivity of religion to not cause you to speak and to prophesy and to steward the moment that God is giving to you right now, to birth what he wants to see established. Passivity will cause you to die because what it will do is it will choke the prophetic life out of you and the edge out of you, from speaking. God wants to give you a prophetic edge in this season to cut yourself off from the root of religion, where you don’t come to association with it.

I’m talking to the whole country right now. I’m talking to the prophetic people of this land, that you cannot be passive. You have to, you have to, let the POWER of God come upon your prayer life, and begin to DECREE and DECLARE what God is saying, even when it seems like it’s not happening.

Because if you come into association with the old in this season, that Beast is coming. And it’s not just coming for your economy. It’s coming for the structure of the church. It’s coming for the voice of your nation. It’s not just coming for your finances; it’s coming for your voice. It’s coming for your church, it’s coming for your freedom to worship, it’s coming for your freedom.

It’s laying at your gate right now so that it can come in. You see what’s happening in France, you see what’s happening in Germany? I’m telling you right now you’d better break away because it’s coming for you. It’s coming for your gates. It’s coming to produce something that wants to take you. I feel this strong this morning. It wants to open up your gates, not the heavenly ones. It wants to open up your borders.

You HAVE TO, right now in this season begin to speak because it’s not just about the finances. It’s about the structure of your church; it’s about the structure of the church in this country right now. It’s about the silencing of the voice.

And if you’re passive about it then the enemy is going to cause that root of religion to wrap around you. And see we always think of the root of religion as simply different denominations which it is, but you know what else it is? It’s the roots of Islam. The root of religion isn’t just a system that falls within Christianity. It’s also a system and a root that comes out of the religion of Islam, that wants to silence the church.

You see all these wonderful buildings that are sitting around in different cities and everywhere? They don’t have a lot of people them. Well guess what? If you don’t do this in this season I am telling you that those aren’t going to be churches anymore.

It’s a real season of contending right now; there’s contention in the realm of the spirit for the heart and soul of the nation. The beast wants to come, and actually take out the heart. The heart of the lion, right now.

The Lion of Judah – you’re cutting us off from the root of religion. We break the spirit of Islam that stands at the borders and the gates of the nation, that wants to produce an Islamic state and we say no in the name of Jesus. You will not come.

Veronika West: a ‘now’ word on the significance of Theresa May’s election

Readers will be aware of the many contributions that UK Prophetic Words is bringing the body of Christ in our current situation, one of which is this from Veronika West posted on her Facebook yesterday:

AN URGENT NOW WORD FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM;

“THE ELECTION OF THERESA MAY WILL MARK THE BEGINNING OF A MIGHTY MANIFESTATION OF A GREAT HARVEST IN THIS NATION, FOR THE WINDS OF RESTORATION, REVIVAL AND REFORMATION ARE NOW BLOWING ACROSS THE LAND”!

Like many of you I have been praying and interceding over the Nation and over the affairs in our Government but today for the first time in a few weeks I saw and felt a TANGIBLE SPIRITUAL SHIFT TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION. I saw in the Spirit realm the prayers of the Saints being set before the King like incense, I saw many hands lifted high toward heaven, then I heard these words,

“THE ELECTION OF THERESA MAY WILL MARK THE BEGINNING OF A MIGHTY MANIFESTATION OF A GREAT HARVEST IN THIS NATION, FOR THE WINDS OF RESTORATION, REVIVAL AND REFORMATION ARE NOW BLOWING ACROSS THE LAND”!

BEGIN TO DECREE; “A HARVEST SHIFT IS NOW TAKING PLACE OVER THIS GREAT NATION…!

As I remained in prayer the Holy Spirit quickened to me a Word I posted last year around this same time. Please see and read the submission below. I believe this word is now beginning to come to pass in our Nation.

Note; I found it poignant that the breakthrough in prayer came today being 7 June 2017, as we know the number (7) represents, Completion, Perfection, Prosperity, Rest, Taking Procession of, Gods Will made manifest, Walls of Jericho came down and Entering into Gods Heavenly Atmosphere.

Furthermore, today it is exactly ’10 months and 25 Days’ ago since Theresa May was Officially Elected as British Prime Minister, (Joshua 10:25 says, “FEAR NOT, nor be dismayed, be STRONG and of good COURAGE..!)

Word; From 2016..! Continue reading

Critical, historic election day – prophetical perspectives & declarations; and Big Ben

Houses of Parliament: courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Awake in the early hours a number of notions popped into mind, maybe as pieces of the Lord’s invisible jigsaw??  ‘Twas time to pray along the lines of Romans 16 to ‘crush satan’ again and I recalled what two sisters in the Lord had told me at Acorn and now realise the scriptural aspect of one is to be announced herein as a Habakkuk declaration:

“Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed for I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe even if you were told (1:5 NIV)…

“Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. (Hab 2:2-3)

The first (‘V#1’) reacted to Nina’s vision of heaven’s response to Romans 16 prayer by saying the triple lights spoke to her of one of the three lots of stakes in each of the four nations of Britain that had been seen by a visiting intercessor. Named ‘Confession & Repentance’ ‘Vision & Promises of Commitment’ and ‘Faithfulness & Covenant Unity’ they had chains connecting and supporting them so the nations wouldn’t be torn apart as our lands rocked and groaned for a while.

A couple of months ago the other (‘V#2’) had shared a vision she’d just had of tanks appearing from the south east of England. In response to the recent alert for the south coast, she writes, “…they increased in number according to the shape of the land…It was to do with the tank tracks, the things that dig into the ground so that they can manouevre over any terrain without too much difficulty. It started with something being sharpened on a moving lathe belt which after a while the lathe belt turned into the moving tank track which then multiplied into many tanks. It was the parts that made up the track that were being sharpened so that no obstacle would hinder it’s progress.”

I recalled it well for I was reminded of scripture’s awesome holy threshing-sledge in Isaiah 41, where the Lord comforts His servant Israel – so declare its meaning for today:

“ALL who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies you will not find them. Those who war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear…for I Myself will help you…

“See, I will make you into a threshing-sledge, new and sharp, with many new teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them and reduce the hills to chaff. You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up and a gale will blow them away. But you will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel.” (vv 11-16 NIV).

Wind and a gale! Didn’t they cause nationwide chaos only a few days ago?

Now in conversation with ‘V#2’, she recalls the tanks started moving off from Dover over discoloured land. However, wherever their tracks went the land became green and fresh again!! (This reminded me what happened in the picture I had whilst praying at Winchester just before the EU-Referendum vote.)

MOREOVER – DOVER was covered in our Keep Praying & Bless routine at 8am, viz:

Decree: I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA; “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the almighty.”(Revelation 1:8)

‘We decree that Jesus is the Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.

‘We bless the people of the British Isles with knowing the security that God truly is the beginning and the end, and that He holds everything together because Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever.’

Also, it’s intriguing that both ladies’ names begin with a ‘V’ – for victory! (In fact, there’s 3 v’s in them.)

SO, let’s be full of expectation for the Lord’s indicating something’s about to happen.

GENESIS 12 BLESSING FOR BRITAIN

It is to be especially noted that Theresa May has written to the Jewish community in the UK promising to be “You community’s champion!” (as here). If she is elected as Prime Minister Great Britain may, therefore, expect to receive the Lord’s blessing promised in Genesis 12:3; “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse”.

Election of the Labour party leader Corbyn would be a catastrophe for Britain because not only does he countenance anti-Semitism within the party but also as a life-long supporter of terrorist groups, he represents a clear and present danger to our national security. To those young idealists, like I was before having my eyes opened to the deep misery of 5 Labour PMs in 50 years, I would urge you to be well aware of that history as you vote. (See former head of MI6 Richard Dearlove’s page 1 Telegraph article ‘Jeremy Corbyn is a danger to this nation and exclusive report on 20-year Special Branch monitoring in view of fear he’s ‘undermining democracy’ – premium content).

VISION OF BIG BEN FROM TUCSON, ARIZONA

My cyber-friend Tony Puccio noted on 11 March in his blog My Dreams and Visions on Big Ben: Another Dream:

In August of 2016 I had the following 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 my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening hence the dreams about Big Ben.’

It just so happens that at about 6am. I heard a massive, quick ‘boom’ in my head and wondered if it could be a symbolic starting pistol to the election. A few hours later at the polling station I learned that was the time they arrived to set up for opening at 7am!

Tony’s dream of a missile attack last year was fulfilled metaphorically by the manner in which citizens were massacred on Westminster Bridge later in March. His second dream may speak of the nation waking up at long last to the treachery buried within the muslim community and our arising to new heights of our re-found national identity?

So tomorrow morning will start an exceptionally interesting period in British history. Bring it on Lord!

Vision of heaven’s response to prayer to crush satan in Britain

This first of two visions received yesterday makes fascinating introduction to this one in which Nina and I were most blessed to receive last night:

Ruminating over Revd Dr Sharon Stone’s teaching on Saturday on being ‘Kingdom Enforcers’ through a proper understanding and application of the biblical meaning of peace, especially per Romans 16:20, led me to a most interesting, immediate response to prayer.

Last night’s prayer meeting in the chapel at our church centre was opened with a reminder that as we are ‘in Christ’ our heavenly Father has raised us up to sit with Him in heaven (learn about the benefits in Ephesians 6:4-10). So it was from that elevated perspective we gathered, meditated and prayed. When time came to pray for our locality and nation in view of the upcoming general election I was led to use Romans 16:17-20 as not only a prayer but also as a declaration over the British Isles along these lines:

“Heavenly Father would you urge and cause all our brethren and fellow citizens to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in our way that are contrary to the teaching we have learned and received from You. Enable us to keep away from and be protected from such people for they do not serve our Lord Jesus. By smooth flattery and they deceive the minds of naive people. Everyone has heard about our obedience to You but help us to be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil.

“And as the God of Peace, would you now crush satan under our feet.”

Immediately, Nina was given a vision of three lightning bolts from heaven’s throne room. She had the sense of being in that sacred place far above and looking down on the distant earth and ‘seeing’ three dazzling, adjacent beams immediately and sequentially light up. In staying alight they had the appearance of a shard of light focused upon Great Britain down below.  Moreover, she understand the vision means our request is answered, “So be it!”

This is exceptionally encouraging and we praise and thank you Lord for this response and look forward to what You are going to do in and through our nation. Would you forgive us of our sins, cleanse us from all evil and sanctify us for Your service.

In this connection I wish to thank Dave Chapman for his kind permission to publish his paper on Romans 16:20, which you will find at Crush Satan Underfoot.

Interesting to note the literal Greek has, ‘the God of peace shall-be-crushing satan under the feet of-you in the swiftness of the grace of the anointed Lord Jesus’. So Lord we trust the rapidity of that crushing is similar to that of Your response to our prayer declaration.

Telling the Truth about Islam – “We need to talk more about Jesus and Mohammed and less about Christianity and Islam.”- Gavin Ashenden.

Most excellent and thank you Gavin. Am re-blogging for those who haven’t yet picked up on my previous post’s link because this essential article warrants reading in its entirety.

Cranmer - by Gavin

The mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham claimed in public that Salman Abedi, the man who slaughtered children in the Manchester bombing, was not a real Muslim:

“The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.”

But how does Mr Burnham know that? It appeared that it simply was not true. Salman Abedi’s friends, who obviously knew him well, say that the truth was different. They describe him as a devout Muslim who had even memorised the Koran.

At the memorial service held after Khalid Masood had killed bystanders on Westminster Bridge, the Dean of Westminster Abbey Dr John Hall offered this reflection in his sermon:

“What happened a fortnight ago leaves us bewildered. What could possibly motivate a man to hire a car and take it from Birmingham…

Battle for Election, Brexit and Revival in UK

Thank you to Suzanne Payne for another received this morning and just posted on UK Prophetic Words:

URGENT VISION CONCERNING THE ELECTION BATTLE, BREXIT AND REVIVAL IN THE UK

I see a baby in the birth canal being born. I see an umbilical cord around the baby’s neck. Where are the midwives caring for the safety of what I am bringing forth in this season? One more contraction and the baby will come. It is imminent. The enemy seeks to choke this baby. Distraction of the intercessors is the enemy’s ploy to abort My purposes in this season. This is your opportunity to seek Me face to face and flow in My purposes. Be intentional! (2 Cor 6:2) (Ps 27:8)

Summon the troops to gather, even in twos threes and fours to stand in the gap between the porch and the altar.

Seek My strategy, it will work even now if you seek strategy from the King. Release the sound to muster, pray and seek My face. Decree that I will thwart the plans of the wicked (Job 5:12-17). Call forth revival. Call forth restoration of those things that have been lost and are not! I am the God of the impossible (Matt.19:26). Call forth what you don’t yet see as if it is and it will surely come to pass (Romans 4:17).

Visualise what victory looks like and speak it into being.

Therefore, come into alignment with My Will and purposes. Fast and pray for the warriors themselves to arise and position themselves for the battle. Pray for one another. Victory is on the horizon if you purpose to get involved as My storm troops. Storm the Heavenly realms with your worship, decrees and sounds of victory! (Eph 3:10-11) Call forth the victory! Sound the battle cry!

Prophetic intercession for next week’s general election

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this posted today for weighing and praying:

PROPHETIC PRAYER DIRECTION FOR UK ELECTION

I believe this Word that came last year is very relevant to this upcoming election:

Word to an intercessor friend as we sought the Lord after Andrea Leadsom stepped aside for Theresa May last July:

Oh My beloved, take heart, for I am right in the heart of this situation, that I have allowed, that I have developed says the Lord. For I am overall, I am in control; I plan that the destiny of this nation will be fulfilled says the Lord.

So take heart, do not be dismayed. But pray like you’ve never prayed before. And seek Me, and keep praying, and praying in tongues my beloved, because the situation is complex. Praying in tongues, praying in tongues My beloved for I am at work.

And just pray: that all those people I am raising up, all those people that I am shifting, all those people that I am realigning to My will and purpose, will come into their positions.

Oh My beloved, take heart, do not be troubled. As you keep praying, you will get the breakthrough, it will come in a different way to what you expected says the Lord, but nevertheless you will have breakthrough.

Take heart for I see My intercessors, I see My faithful ones. I see that the hopes of many have been dashed but My beloved take heart for all is well. Just keep praying, keep praying, keep interceding, day and night says the Lord and you will see that My plan will unfold and I will shape what I am doing.

I am moving people like you move pieces on a chessboard. I am re-positioning people says the Lord so that those that I have chosen to be in positions of authority at this time will be positioned.

But I’m also preparing the way for the next government says the Lord. I am preparing that ahead of time says the Lord so once I have done what I have decreed I will do, what I have planned I will do, My government will rise up: those that I’ve chosen, that will accelerate this nation forwards in this time of jubilee, beyond the time of jubilee, and as I bring this nation back into revival says the Lord.

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.
