FOUR Jesus’ End-Time Signs Seen – Pray for Christian ex-magistrate before Tribunal

‘As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, Peter, James, John and Andrew asked Him privately, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things will be fulfilled?“…Now learn this lesson from the fig-tree. As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening you know that it is near, right at the door!”  (Mark 13:3, 28-29 NIV).

Today, Croydon Employment Tribunal starts hearing the case of Richard Page – a Christian who was removed from being a magistrate after he expressed his belief that children do best with a mother and a father. The case is scheduled to last for five days.

An ‘Action Alert’ has been issued today to Pray for a fair, just outcome for Richard from Christian Concern (click to read full details)

Richard was first challenged by his seniors in late 2014 when, after hearing an adoption case, he could not agree with his fellow magistrates that placing a child into the care of a same-sex couple was ‘in the child’s best interest’. Richard says,

“As a magistrate, I have to act on the evidence before me and quite simply, I believe that there is not sufficient evidence to convince me that placing a child in the care of a same-sex couple can be as holistically beneficial to a child as placing them with a mum and dad as God and nature intended.

“I am surprised that this Lord Chancellor should seemingly pander to the new political orthodoxy when what it amounts to is social experimentation on the lives of the most vulnerable children in our communities. To punish me and to seek to silence me for expressing a dissenting view is deeply worrying. I shall challenge this decision as it is deeply illiberal and intolerant. It is vital the family law courts always have in mind the best interests of the children…”

Richard is supported by the Christian Legal Centre and represented by its Standing Counsel, human rights barrister Paul Diamond. The Centre’s chief executive, Andrea Minichiello Williams, comments:

“The Lord Chancellor has removed Richard from the magistracy for allegedly being ‘prejudiced’ and for speaking out in the media about what has happened to him.

This unmasks the face of the new political orthodoxy; it is unkind. It tries to silence opposing views and if it fails it crushes and punishes the person who holds those views.

“To remove someone like Richard from the bench is modern-day madness. He has a lifetime of public service and expertise in mental health. He is motivated by his Christian faith and a deep compassion for people.”

Fulfilled Prophecy #26 – Exposed: ‘coup’ threats against Brexit and against Trump

UTTERLY fantastic ‘coincidence’ with what I’ve prepared for publishing today, as though more pie ces of God’s ‘Invisible Jigsaw’!  One warning of a possible coup d’etat, another of international meddling, both exposing corrupt and apparently centrally directed, anti-democratic chicanery on opposite sides of ‘The Pond’.

Daily Telegraph’s investigative journalists are to be warmly congratulated (click to read)

The strap-line and opening paragraph of this exclusive investigation read:

‘Billionaire financier Soros hosts campaign dinner to undermine May and keep Britain in the EU – George Soros, the billionaire known as the man who “broke the Bank of England”, is backing a campaign to overturn Brexit, the Telegraph can disclose.

‘The investor is one of three senior figures linked to the Remain-supporting campaign group Best for Britain who plan to launch a nationwide advertising campaign this month, which they hope will lead to a second referendum to keep Britain in the EU. The campaign is trying to recruit major Tory donors in an attempt to undermine Theresa May.

‘It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election, according to a strategy document leaked from a meeting of the group….’ [NB: ‘premium’ content, but one item/week may be accessed free-of-charge.]

This isn’t entirely new because in Why Leave the EU? Jonathan Ely posted rumours of Soros’ interference in our democratic decision to leave the ‘Tower of Babel/Brussels’. Also, December’s issue of Christian Voice published an in-depth report on Soros’ pan-EU anti-Brexit web by Stephen Green (see Farage Exposes Soros Plotters).

On the Other Side of ‘The Pond’

A fortnight ago today I blogged about corruption worse than the Watergate scandal surfacing, as another example of fulfillment of my prophetical musing about the exposure of rotten politics and corruption in the UK, USA – and EU? (Months later examples erupted here and here, then a year later here; others brought prophecies on it, as blogged here and here in November 2016 and here a year later.)

Thank you Jennie C and Lynne H for informing me of news emerging the day before my blog of Franklin Graham’s warning about the ‘Deep State Threat’ – even a ‘coup d’etat’ – against President Trump.

In recent months the so-called “deep state” has been all over the news in America. A WND report of January says, “Loosely defined, it’s the career bureaucrats who wield considerable influence on the policy and practice of the federal government. While the heads of agencies are political appointees changing with each president, “deep state” members, with their own political ideologies and agendas, remain.”

Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Franklin at a dinner held on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and his famous international charity, Samaritan’s Purse.

Also, I recall Franklin having fallen foul of Obama’s policies in his first presidential term and I mentioned a couple of instances in an email of 2010 to friends: the Pentagon had withdrawn their invitation to attend a prayer breakfast and Muslim activists wanted him banned from attending America’s National Prayer Day!!! 

Yet he was one of several pastors who were invited to pray for Donald Trump at his Inauguration!

Fox News’ Franklin Graham Warns of Deep State Coup Against President Trump, is summarised as follows (courtesy Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House of 26 January, Bill’s emphases retained):

‘One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

“I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Franklin Graham said Wednesday (24th) on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.

‘Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

‘The evangelical leader did not name names, but he suggested the mainstream media was complicit in the silent coup. Click here to listen to the shocking interview.

“They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

‘Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

That was a fortnight ago. For an update, with interpretation for we Brits, on the situation let’s check out the lady journalist ‘going wherever the evidence leads’, Melanie Phillips. In last Sunday’s article on the now-famous Nunes Memo her analysis leads her to note and conclude:

‘Bottom line seems to me to be that the FBI and DoJ misled the FISA court by failing to provide it with information that seriously called into question the reliability of the evidence put to it to support the request for a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. That would seem to be, to put it mildly, a serious abuse of legal process which totally undermined the protection afforded to the public against abuse of the FISA surveillance powers designed to guard against terrorist offences

‘We don’t know anything like the full picture on all this and so must be cautious. It may be that further information will emerge which will radically change the story that’s now unfolding. But as things stand, it looks very much as if, under the Obama administration, certain senior figures in the FBI and DoJ corrupted the administration of law enforcement and subverted the US constitution.

‘This is deeply shocking, and Congress must now continue to place more information in the public domain so that we can all finally assess just what took place here and just how deep this most fetid swamp has become.’

It must NOT escape our attention that Soros and Obama are in cahoots as more-or-less leaders of the Organization for Action (OfA) – AND the Telegraph’s journalists point out its violent nature as witnessed in the US and warns of a distinct possibility of similar deliberately organised manifestations happening in Britain!

On the Soros meeting in London, those investigators tell of a leaked strategy document for a campaign to undermine Brexit that reveals,

‘…a series of Momentum-style mass rallies and concerts are planned and the campaign will have a “heavy youth focus”…and reveals a plan to  “pressure” MPs in 100 Leave-supporting constituencies and sets out how organisers have a range of guerrilla marketing tactics” to build momentum.

‘(Soros’) involvement comes more than 25 years after he made over £1 billion betting against the pound shortly before the UK withdrew from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. More recently he has been accused of organising rallies against Donald Trump in the US and interfering in the democracies of several European nations.’ (Emphasis mine)

A year ago the New York Post, as part of the MSM not noted as a Trump supporter, reported on How Obama’s Scheming to Sabotage the Trump Presidency via the OfA.

As there’s no smoke without fire, maybe the Christian journalists who were deeply wary of the person and policies of the past American president, claiming he and Soros may be furthering the Antichrist’s agenda and strategies, could have discerned ‘the devil in the detail’?

2018: Year of the ‘Prophet’s Reward’ – more on ‘castles’

We start again with more ‘serendipity’ on the Word/Call to Pray for the Nation because ‘The Finger of God’ is definitely pointing at what Liz Evans brought in 2010. That is, it’s getting strongly reinforced!

Also, this ‘God-incidence’ promises the Lord’s favour to all who receive all that comes from Him and through those bringing His written and inspired words. So may you, my reader, be greatly favoured this year.

Just after noon on Monday I published a copy of that word/call and began mulling over  how to blog about my personal connection. Almost concurrently, Elijah List published a closely related word!  I’m indebted to Lynne at Father’s House of Prayer for forwarding that one’s full text to me within the hour.  I replied, ‘It certainly seems to fit in with what I was subconsciously sensing about this 7th year of blogging, in prep for going up a level – hence my New Year blog and surprising award

Jane Hamon, Dr Sharon Stone’s close associate at Christian International in Florida, writes in 2018 Word of the Lord: A Year of the Prophet’s Reward about what she’d received:

‘As I prayed about the upcoming season in the Church and what God is saying to us for 2018, I had a vision in which I saw and heard the words “A Time for the Prophet’s Reward.” Jesus spoke about this in Matthew 10:40-41 saying, “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.” The word “receive” means “to take hold of, to accept, to receive favorably, to embrace, to give ear to, to make one’s own”This is what we must do with Christ in our lives. To receive Him is to receive the Father. And to receive a prophet and those who are righteous will bring blessing in our lives.

‘Later I saw just the words “Prophet’s Reward” written on a giant battering ram which was slamming against a huge locked gate. I knew the anointing of the Prophet’s Reward was going to open tremendous opportunities for the Kingdom of God to advance. Those who have received prophetic promises from God and those who operate and function in prophetic ministry will experience one of the greatest seasons of honor, advancement, promotion and favor as we align and actively participate with all God has said.’

Next, a fascinating difference of sub-headers follows, BUT BOTH are very apposite!  The website’s first sub-head is ‘The Significance of 30 and Prophetic Fulfillment’, whereas what Lynne sent me reads as follows (note Jane’s content reinforces previous posts and comments, plus important historical data – the underlining is mine):

NOW IS THE TIME!

So why would this be a focused year to receive this anointing? This year we celebrate 30 years since the birth of the prophetic movement.

Prior to 1988, there were only a few places in the earth that were experiencing dreams, visions, angelic visitations and prophetic revelation. However, that year at Christian International (as well as several other places on earth) we spiritually birthed the prophetic movement. We recognized that God was raising up a company of prophets and prophetic people who could communicate His heart, will and mind to the earth. Today, it is now widely accepted throughout Christianity that God is still speaking TO His people and THROUGH His people and that as we hear God’s Voice it can change our world.

‘The number 30 signifies a promotion into a new season of success. This is a new season of authority and blessing for prophetic ministry and for seeing the prophesied word come to pass. It is a launching season! Jesus was launched into his earthly ministry at the age of 30 accompanied by signs, wonders, miracles, authority, power over demons and a heart to demonstrate that the Kingdom of God had come. 30 was a very important number in the Jewish culture. It was considered to be the year of maturity for leadership. Priests were dedicated to service at age 30. (Intercession). Men were eligible for military service at age 30. (Warfare). Ezekiel was called as a prophet at age 30 (Prophetic). Men were considered of age to run their father’s business at age 30. (Marketplace). This year get ready to be mantled for a new level of authority in your area of prophetic calling.

’30 was also a year linked to fulfillment of prophetic destiny, overcoming & rulership…

‘The Prophets Reward launches us into similar times of fruition when all we may have struggled through comes to an appointed time of grace and fulfillment so that we can step into our time to rule and legislate for the Kingdom of God in the earth. 30 also signifies prosperity & posterity. In the book of Judges, one of the judges, Jair, had 30 sons. He gave each of them a horse and a city! (Judges 10:4)

‘So you see, in this 30th year of the prophetic ministry, all that has gone before has actually only been preparatory to what comes next. Where before the prophetic was met with skepticism and resistance, now there is honor and excitement to hear the Word of the Lord. The Voice of God is being integrated into the church and being drawn on in the business world. Even local and national governmental officials long to hear answers from the heart of God so they can have the capacity to bring their city or even nation into the Prophets Reward of breakthrough. One of the new things to watch for is how effectively prophets and prophetic ministry cross into the mainstream of culture, not just the mainstream of the church. Secular leaders will become increasingly open to hear what God is saying, even those who don’t know Him yet.

‘The Lord is saying it is time to receive the Prophet’s Reward whether you have been a part of what God has been doing the last 30 years or if you are brand new to the movement, your reward is the same. During this 30th year of prophetic ministry, we should expect a greater anointing for fulfillment of prophetic destiny, blessings of prosperity upon ourselves and our families, greater revelation, greater miracles, signs and wonders than ever before.’

WHAT’S THE PROPHET’S REWARD?

Jane Hamon goes on to ask ‘What is the Prophet’s Reward? and, in answering, cites  scriptural examples (that number again! – see closing paras of previous post):

  1. The miracle we need that money cannot buy
  2. The reward of provision
  3. The reward of posterity
  4. The reward of new beginnings
  5. The reward of breakthrough
  6. The reward of opportunity and favour
  7. The reward that heaven will fight for you
  8. The reward of nation changing.
NUMBER 8

Under #4 Jane refers to numbers as follows:

‘This is the Roman calendar year 2018 and the Hebraic calendar year 5778. Both years end in the number 8 – which signifies new beginnings, reformation and resurrection life. Jesus was resurrected on the first day of the week which was the 8th day. Josiah, a reformer, began his reign at age 8 bringing a new era in the midst of idolatrous predecessors. He also began to seek the Lord for himself in the eighth year of his reign which later resulted in His purging Israel of the altars of Baal. Likewise, Solomon began to purge the idols from Israel in the 8th year of his reign. The 8 of Reformation will always call us back to the straight path and righteous living. 

‘Since I mentioned the number 8, I should mention here the biblical meaning of the number ’18’ is blessing and long life…Finally, the number 18 is tied to judges. There were 18 judges from the time of Joshua until Saul became king. The first judge, Joshua, ruled 18 years. I believe it is time to see a new beginning in the courts of our land with a return to righteous rulership…’.

The above extracts should encourage readers to peruse and meditate upon the full text via the above title or this link. May you be mightily blessed.

A FEW THOUGHTS

The emphasis upon ruling and justice is noticeable and reinforces that dominant theme in connection with ‘castles’ throughout the Word and Call to Pray for our Nation. Buried in the email shown in that post’s follow-up is a reference to a word I’d heard at Bath in March 2009:

‘The phrase ‘Prepare to rule’ had inexplicably dropped into my mind. Was this for the church to get ready to be in the position to rule with Jesus upon His return?’

The significance of the historic 30-years is personally noteworthy because 30 years ago I reactivated my search for the Truth, which led into my encounter with Him in 1989 (for details read “I’m Free!”).

Finally, let’s not forget the first ‘Nationwide Prophetic Circuit Message’ from the Lord says of this year: “2018, I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly ‘My Numbers’, such as dates, times and even denominations of money as I loose significant detail and even finance…”  

A Prophetic Word and Call to Pray for our Nation

An unusual turn of circumstances that can only be of the Lord have drawn the following document to my attention. I invite readers’ prayerful weighing of and intercession based upon this valuable word of prophetic encouragement and direction from Liz Evans. (An account of those ‘God-incidents’ will follow.)

I’m grateful for her kind permission to publish and, as Liz writes, “The more prayer the better”. I’ve copied/pasted it direct from the email to retain her emphases (hence the Times Roman – depending on your browser! – rather than usual sans-serif typeface and minimal editing).:

Liz Evans’ Word for UK – Call for Christians to pray for the Nation 

 

Sharon Stone was chatting to Liz in the green-room at a conference and asked her, “I believe God has given you a high-level Word for the UK about castles?” Liz asked her how she knew, and Sharon replied that God had told her about it.

 

Liz went on to tell Sharon what God had been showing her:

“God is doing a work of restoration in His church at the moment. He is restoring the church to Himself in intimacy and commitment, He is restoring the church to one another in unity, and He is restoring authority to the church. 

What is authority? Authority is the spiritual right and power to enforce His Kingdom rule to the world and in our lives.

 

God gave me a picture. In this picture I was having balls thrown at my head and I was being knocked over. And then quickly the picture changed. I was learning to duck and dive, and the enemy was throwing balls at me, but none of them were hitting me because I was getting wiser. But then God showed me the 3rd picture. And in the 3rd picture I had the ball. And it was now you run. That’s where the church is in this season. This is key for where we are as a nation. Some of you have been downtrodden and things have come against you in your lives but you’ve got more mature, you’ve learned how to walk in spite of those things and in spite of the things that have been happening in our nation. But you see in this season God is giving us the ball, and He’s expecting us to do something with the authority that He is giving us.

 

Where are we as a nation, and what does He want us to do with that authority? I want to tell you a story of our nation. In the 11th century, 1066, the Normans came over and they conquered the country and they put the whole of the country under King William – William the conqueror. And in order to establish and perpetuate their rule, they embarked on a series of castle building. Please note that at this point they already had authority in the land. It was theirs. But they built these castles to do certain things. They were a place of presence in the area, they were visible, so they made a statement. And they proclaimed the rule of the King and defended the land that had been given to them.  They were places of watch, seeing what the enemy was doing, seeing what was happening; and they sorted it out, they brought safety and they enforced his rule. They enforced the rule of the kingdom.

 A place of presence. A place to bring rule and order, and enforce the rule of the King, that’s justice in the land. And a place of watch, a place of prayer. What does that sound like to you? That is our remit as the church of Christ. To be the castles in the nation. This is the function of the church. You might say well that’s a nice parallel Liz, it kind of works, but why is that pertinent to the Word for the UK at the moment, at this Kairos time in our nation? Because you know that a Kairos time is ‘now’ [emphasis RB]. It’s a window of time. It’s not a Chronos time, which is on-going.

We’re at a key time. It passes. And I need to tell you that, while I’m being calm and considered because I want to communicate this to you, inside me there is a cry and I want to be on my knees before God saying ‘O God, let us not miss this time as your people because it will not come again’. And the issue of timing is key. You know, there are many prophetic people here. Timing and application are what makes a prophecy, after interpretation, effective. We don’t just want to get the revelation; we want to bring forth the fruit that God intended.

 

Now the function of a castle took on a particular importance at a certain time in the nation. And this is where we are. When King William was getting older, castle building became a key strategy because when a monarch dies, it’s a key time, it’s ripe, for the rule of the land, of the occupying force, to be challenged. It’s a vulnerable time. It needs covering. So their castle building increased to be a presence and impose rule. You know what’s coming. Since receiving this Word I’ve been hearing from God and then prophetic voices around the kingdom and the world, in totally different streams of the church, talking about the Queen. And I’ve realised that they’re picking up on it too. One of the prophets I was talking to at lunchtime, one of the speakers in the speakers’ lounge said; not knowing what I was going to bring or even that I was going to bring this this afternoon;

Hey Liz I had a vision, I had a vision that the Queen was lying in state, she’d died, and then this man came and stood next to me and he said this: “The mantle of authority and peace that the Queen has carried since the moment she had hands laid on her as Queen, lifted when she stopped breathing.” And things are about to change. This same person had friends who lost a child. And the Queen wrote to them, and she said can I meet you in a hotel? And this isn’t a vision, this is true. And she went to them and she wept with them and she knelt with them and she prayed. And they said the presence of God that came while the Queen was praying with them was immense. You see, she’s carrying something. A mantle of authority, and peace.

 

Do you remember our 3 balls picture? I have to tell you that the authority ball is about to be passed. And this is a Kairos time in our nation. It’s a time when the rule of the occupying force of the land will be challenged. So our castle building needs to increase, to be a presence, and impose the rule of the Kingdom. And that has great benefits to us. The places of authority were also places of provision. When we bring order and peace to our nation and into our nation from heaven we benefit. Our children and our loved ones prosper. But I have to tell you that we have a window of time, a Kairos, to pray.

 

And He is restoring the authority to the church. There’s a unity about this prayer movement. As we come together and pray for our nation at this time. You see the time of the intercessors being isolated is being drawn to a close. They’re being drawn into the castle to bring power and to enhance rule. Because He is restoring the church to one another.

 

And God kept speaking to me about what was happening historically. It’s interesting to me that just after the Normans took over, when the castles were being raised up, the Magna Carta was written. When God was talking to me about this, this fell out of the drawer. And it happens to be a piece of the Magna Carta. And it says this, ‘The English church shall be free, with her rights and liberties unchanged’. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed but recently the freedoms of the church, especially around who they employ, what they believe and what they say, have been in question. Even in minute detail in believers lives. Whether you can wear a cross to work. The rights and liberties of the church were set in place in this nation. But, they need a watch.

And in the Magna Carta I noticed another sentence. ‘No free man shall be imprisoned without a proper trial by jury.’ What’s that? Justice. And that one has very real challenges in a time of terrorism and immigration. And our government needs wisdom. 

What were the castles? A place of watch. And a place of rule, a place where we pray for these things.

 

And then I had a dream, and it terrified me. It’s a dream which tells of a time yet to come. And in the dream I found myself standing on a pavement and there were people close, and then a black car came by. And there was a coffin in the car, and the car was covered in flowers. And I realised this dream looked forward to a time when the Queen’s rule was passing. In the dream it had happened, and we didn’t pray. I was terrified. I have to tell you that the authority ball will be passed. And God is raising up castles all over the land to defend the country. To establish His presence, His rule, and bring order in His Kingdom, to earth.

 

And there will be princes in this nation, men and women that God is raising up into a place of authority in government, in industry, government, education and in the church to take a place with God, Israel. He’s putting a name upon you of rule for this nation. Mordecai said to Esther ‘for such a time as this’. And there’s also a company of believers who are going to take their places on the walls behind those men, and pick up the watch for our nation. Esther prayed and fasted when she was in trouble. The Jews prayed and fasted. And this is what it says in Esther 8 v 11. The Kings granted to the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves. Of course I’m not talking about people. We battle not against people. We battle against principalities and powers of this dark age. 

 

The castles are a place of presence. What does it say in the Psalms? ‘God is present in the company of the righteous’. And you’ve been raised for such a time as this my friends. The ball will be passed. But we have a window.

 

And I have to tell you that application of Words is vital and if the soil doesn’t receive and respond to this Word there will be no fruit. And I’m not going to tell you who they are but the prophet at lunchtime told me what the fruit would be if we don’t pick up this Word and fight with it. But I’m looking here for good soil. Soil that produces a crop. 30% 60% or even 100%. Because our nation depends on it. Let me tell you, are we going to have 30% of our nation left to us, 60% of our nation left to us, or 100%? 

And this is a ‘masa’ Word; it’s an intercession Word. The Bible talks about the watchman of Israel as dogs that didn’t bark, well the watchman of the church are barking. All over this nation. And we’re beginning to hear it. And we need the watch and the prayer to come forth in response to that. Because we will never have such a strong position in this nation again if we don’t. This is vital. We’ve got to hold the land that we’ve been given. Because it’s our watch. So who’s going to carry that ball in prayer? So that the authority ball is passed well and it’s not dropped? If you’re a leader, we’re going to commission you that you go and call people together for prayer.

 

And He also told me that we were to prayer-walk and proclaim and that the authority of God comes where our feet tread. And I want you to understand your authority because He is the King and we are bringing the declaration that He is the King of all the earth. And  that He is the King of the nation for evermore. There will be no break in His Kingship. He has given it to us and we will hold it. The time of the priests of God to rule is arising because His Kingdom is coming. It’s time for the sons. And it’s time to anoint the priests. Leaders who will take up the watch of God. The Bible says that creation is longing for the sons of God to be revealed.”

Liz Evans grew up in a family of Church and Mission Leaders. An early passion for God’s written word was joined by a prophetic gifting when in her student days. Studying an Education and Biblical Studies honours degree, she was gripped with a desire to hear God’s voice. Time spent seeking Him began a lifestyle of loving His Voice and the growing intimacy which hearing Him brings.

Her love is to see people come to know and hear God, understand what they were made for and to go on that adventure.

Prince Charles warns UK Christians not to take freedom to worship for granted!

Politico-religious author ‘Cranmer’ has blogged today about the Prince of Wales’ visit  to London’s Melkite Greek Catholic parish, based at St Barnabas Church in Pimlico, where a Coptic Orthodox Bishop and Syriac Archbishop were in attendance. The Prince spoke of his own faith, his despair at the appalling plight of Christians in the Middle-East and his hope during this season of Advent. 

In Prince of Wales to UK Christians: “Do not take your freedom of worship and freedom of expression for granted”, Cranmer blogs

And then came this nugget of theo-political awareness:

“It is so vitally important, in this season of Advent and throughout the year, that Christians in this country and elsewhere, who enjoy the rights of freedom of worship and freedom of expression, do not take those rights for granted; and that we remember, and do what we can to support, our fellow Christians for whom the denial of such rights has had such profound and painful consequences.”

Nuggety, because the Prince of Wales has gone further in this speech than many politicians and church leaders currently dare. Most will talk effusively of inter-religious tolerance and the imperative of freedom of worship, but very few these days will defend Christians’ freedom of expression, i.e., freedom of religion; the freedom to manifest their faith in the public space; to walk in spirit and in truth; to propagate the Christian faith and witness to Christ in the world.

Cranmer refers to the outstanding work of Christian Concern supporting/fighting in the courts on behalf of many individuals persecuted in Britain because of their faith at work or in public:

Freedom of worship and freedom of expression are foundational British liberties, currently besieged (if not nullified and negated) by ascendant and increasingly frequent appeals to ‘religious hatred’. By exhorting British Christians to guard these hard-won liberties, the Prince of Wales shows that he is patently aware of their incremental erosion – not least because they aren’t included among the Government’s rather fuzzy  notion of ‘British values‘. We supplant religious freedom with statist tolerance, and exchange public theology for mandatory respect, at our peril.

A prophetic word re. Prime Minister May and Brexit

WORD REGARDING THERESA MAY AND BREXIT

‘As I was praying for our government, the Lord began to speak to me. What the Lord showed me was that Mrs May will step down from leadership as soon as she manages to secure a deal and it is signed. (This is the reason she was appointed by God, to secure a Brexit deal). I sense the outcome and its follow-up and implications will be handed over to other government ministers. I sense she will step down because of all the pressure, stress and strain that she has been under; however, she will still be in a governmental position, doing good for the nation.

‘I asked the Lord who would come into power next – what government? He said that it would be another joint government leadership, but that it would be balanced (ie. no need to worry). I just sense we need to pray for her more, and that whatever happens next will be a Godly move. We need Him to be governing and ruling in our nation. We need the next leader and government to be by his hand and not purely by man’s, so that our nation is led by Him.’

A JOURNALIST’S TAKE ON PM MAY

In that regard, the Director of the Social Market Foundation and The Telegraph’s former executive political editor James Kirkup offers an astute observation on Theresa May:

“Anyone paying close attention to the election result or Mrs May’s words since would have picked up her signals about her real intentions.”

What he was writing on the day Ruth Grigg prayed as above got published later online (‘Theresa May’s punchbag act…’), and in Saturday’s broadsheet as The lady’s not of turning…so is this the package May planned to deliver all along? Kirkup writes,

‘…The Brexit deal set out in Brussels today is testament to Mrs May’s extraordinary toughness, an ability and willingness to endure public abuse, collegiate acrimony and private despair, yet not give up. Her predecessor may have run away from the scale of the Brexit challenge he gave Britain, but Mrs May has stayed at her post.

‘Whatever you think of the deal, whatever questions it leaves unanswered and whatever trouble it stores up for the future, remember this: many of those now passing learned comments on it were six months ago convinced that Mrs May would not be in office by now.

‘Her willingness to endure pain and ability to survive apparently mortal wounds – including self-inflicted ones – are the foundations of this deal.

‘The greatest of those wounds, the botched election, is perhaps key. For when Mrs May lost her Commons majority, she made compromises on Brexit inevitable, since she (or any other Tory PM) would lack the votes – and authority – to drive through the hardest form of exit sought by purist Leavers.

‘Looking back, it is hard not to wonder whether, within hours of the June 8 disaster, she had already calculated that only by making the subsequent negotiating process look unendurably hard might she able to placate those purists during the inevitable climb-downs to come…’

Fulfilled Prophecy #24 – Brexit humiliation for Theresa May

Yesterday’s humiliation for Prime Minister Theresa May after going to Brussels lines up with what Emma Stark recently heard from the Lord after having seen the deep disarray in satan’s camp (emphases added):

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” And the Lord said, “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.”

‘And many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.

‘And I heard God say this: “I will allow a bad deal for the UK in BREXIT, and it will bring a humbleness to the nation. And in the humbleness it will be an answer to your prayers, because it will break Leviathan off you. And in the breaking of Leviathan”, the Lord says, “I will rush towards you with revival and awakening that you have prayed for.” And so the Lord says, “Do not fear the bad deal, for I am in it, and I am disconnecting you to reconnect you.” And the Lord says that there will be a move of God on the back of the humbleness that is going to come to the UK…’

(The Lord then went on to encourage our prayers for a revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.)

Readers may recall my closely monitoring last year’s Referendum and recording almost two dozen prophetic words in the previous ten years in favour of the Brexit outcome – as summarised in EU & ‘Brexit’ hub. Therefore, I was surprised with this latest and needed to weigh what may be a turn-around with the previous; especially in view of the intense  opposition to our leaving the EU and then learning the effect of intercessors’ prayers upon the devil’s domain.

But it is not a change of heart on the Lord’s part for, unlike the meccan god, He doesn’t abrogate His principles. It’s understandable as an operational practicality in view of all the bickering and deep divisions across our nation.

Note that the Lord is bringing about His word on this issue through the only Christian- based political party in the UK: the Democratic Unionist Party, Northern Ireland (DUP) – see Are Bible-believing Christians The New Heretics?

After this year’s humiliating snap election Theresa May is reliant upon them to support the government’s very slim Parliamentary majority.

This week the DUP’s leader Arlene Foster dealt Mrs May a serious blow as a result of our PM’s lack of proper consultation over the highly sensitive and controversial issue of how trade between Ulster and the Irish Republic is to be conducted after Brexit.

‘Brexiteers’ in Cabinet accused the PM of trying to ‘bounce’ the Cabinet into agreeing a ‘regulatory alignment’ between Ulster and Eire (which is in the EU), thus requiring Ulster to be treated differently to the rest of UK because of its land border with the Republic

Upon hearing the Irish PM claim such an alignment would be part of the deal Mrs May was to agree with the EU’s President of the European Commission in Brussels, Arlene Foster more or less said, “No way!”. It came as a “big shock” to the DUP” (BBC News) and so Mrs May’s discussions collapsed.

Tory ‘Brexiteers’ such as a possible PM-in-waiting Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, are therefore  now grateful to and those in Cabinet are very supportive of the DUP, for whom several days are now needed to consider the proposed agreement for Brexit.

Philip Johnston writes the PM’s bespoke Brexit deal is now undeliverable and observes:

‘International agreements are not written by the Prime Minister on the back of an envelope in a darkened room. There are processes, committees, drafts, discussions, rewritings, amendments and final copies to be signed off. How is it possible that the very party that would be most opposed to what was being suggested – and which is propping up Mrs May in parliament to boot – was not squared beforehand? It is incompetence of epic proportions. What could have been a great national story is turning into an indignity that no leader should countenance.’ (Emphasis added)

Perhaps if our churchgoer Prime Minister (now ex-Christian?) had taken a firm stand on the sanctity of marriage here and not encouraged Australia’s government to introduce SSM, the Lord would have stood by her and given her the necessary wisdom to achieve a satisfactory deal with the EU?

Nevertheless, this turmoil clearly confirms what the Lord told Emma is rapidly coming to fruition – and He’s using a Bible-based political party to bring it about!

‘MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY’ – urgent prayer call for UK & PM May

About to take a brief walk I was prompted to send a brief email to a fellow watcher but spotted news of the following alert Veronika West posted yesterday. So am re-posting it with a couple of graphics as top priority:

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM AND PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY ‘MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!’

Just after midnight I heard these words in the realm of the Spirit going forth over the Nation of the United Kingdom, “Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!”

Veronika WestAs I began to pray, immediately the Holy Spirit gave me a heavy burden to pray for Prime Minister Theresa May. Now As I prayed in the Spirit I was shown clearly the Houses of Parliament and Number 10 Downing Street and then again I heard a clear distress call going forth over the Nation saying, “Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!”

Prophecy Today (link)

As I listened I heard that the call was coming from within these two locations (Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street), so I pressed in deeper then suddenly I saw these words being written over the Nation, “REBELLION RISING”, then I heard a loud trumpet sound and I heard these words echo in the realm of the Spirit, “The Trumpet Calls you to a Holy and Righteous Fight For Such a Time As This!”

Now as I have continued to pray and intercede this morning over what I saw and clearly heard over the Nation, the Holy Spirit led me back to this word, which I posted last year September concerning Theresa May and the Destiny of our Nation. I believe it is both poignant and relevant to what the Lord has revealed to me last night (emphasis RB): Continue reading

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration

Prime Ministers meet prior to gala dinner – Credit: Peter Nicholls/PA Wir (tap for link)

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the British Government’s issuing a Declaration in support for ‘A National Home for the Jewish People’ (read draft versions at Balfour100). As expected, this morning’s edition of Koenig’s World Watch Daily includes this in its rolling headlines, ‘November 2nd 2017 is the 100th Anniversary of the Balfour Declaration’ and displays a copy of the document:

 

Now, does this anniversary have any relevance to prophecies in the Holy Bible?

In my opinion it’s prophetically signalled by the fact that Koenig has sandwiched the Declaration between two directly Gog-Magog relevant headlines – (above) ‘In Iran, Putin says dismantling nuclear deal is ‘not acceptable’.’ with a photo of his shaking hands yesterday with Iran’s President Rhouani – the headline shown below it reads as shown here with initial text describing the preceding Declaration item:

So we’re not only back to the Bible but also to what grabbed my attention in mid-1980s of Iran rehearsing (with its Sunni enemy troops!) the storming of Jerusalem whilst I was reading about it as a non-Christian in the secular book ‘The Invisible Hand’ (tap link to learn more).

Never forget Khameini’s belief that their full attack will facilitate the supernatural return of their ‘hidden imam’ or Mahdi – accompanied by the prophet Jesus!! (See Iranian Leader’s End-times Declaration)  LOL!  So let’s pray that Khameini is blessed with a similar personal revelation of the supreme power of Jesus Christ over Muslim’s god and prophet as had stunned the ex-Hezbollah Afshin David.

As well as being related to the prophecies in Ezekiel 38-39, those two items on World Watch tie in with the next headline on the surgical insertion of microchips under the skin in the web between the thumb and hand. This development was foretold in Revelation 13 wherein a demonic entity forces people to ‘receive a mark on right hand or forehead’ in order to buy and sell – just like holding a phone and waving it over a cash machine!

SO MILLENNIALS – BEWARE of enslavement to your devices!!

It’s so obvious that we’re quickly getting closer to the times of the battle of Armageddon and Jesus Christ’s return to put all demonic principalities and powers under His feet.

For more information consider Cranmer’s excellent historical/theological review of the Declaration…which concludes:

‘God told Abraham to “Go…”, and he responded “I will…”. God promised Abraham that his descendants would have a land – a geographic entity – and would be a blessing to all the nations of the earth. Israel is a fulfilment of that promise, or the covenant of blessing is as fragile and ephemeral as the desert covenant. Christians and Jews together can thank the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and praise the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ for the restoration of the Jewish people to their homeland, because it was an eschatological promise that He would so. And if that was not a promise, then Jesus may not in fact be the long-promised Messiah, and our promised salvation is nullified in a plethora of meaningless metaphors.

Boris (brave), the BBC (beware!) and the Balfour Declaration

Yesterday’s encouraging op-ed in the Telegraph broadsheet on the Balfour Declaration by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson covers his vision and a solution for peace in the Holy Land.  Lord Balfour’s Declaration of 2nd November 1917 on behalf of the British government under Lloyd-George, proposed the establishment of territory within Palestine for the Jewish people upon the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after allied victory in World War 1. That is, it would be in their own original and ancient homeland.  Boris writes,

‘On the Centenary, I will say what I believe: the Balfour Declaration was indispensable to the creation of a great nation. In the seven decades since its birth, Israel has prevailed over what has sometimes been the bitter hostility of neighbours to become a liberal democracy and a dynamic hi-tech economy. In a region where many have endured authoritarianism and misrule, Israel has always stood out as a free society. Like every country, Israel has faults and failings. But it strives to live by the values in which I believe.

‘I served a stint at a kibbutz in my youth, and (though I was mainly washing up) I saw enough to understand the miracle of Israel: the bonds of hard work, self-reliance and an audacious and relentless energy that hold together a remarkable country.

‘Most of all, there is the incontestable moral goal: to provide a persecuted people with a safe and secure homeland. So I am proud of Britain’s part in creating Israel and Her Majesty’s Government will mark the Centenary of the Balfour Declaration on Thursday in that spirit…’

His thoughts are well-worth reading for they display a keen appreciation of the state of affairs and he argues for a two-state solution thoroughly negotiated by Israelis and the Palestinians. BUT I have to say this could have been achieved decades ago but for the hatred, intransigence and duplicity of Palestinian leaders who prefer to forever whinge about victim-hood, instead of blessing and prospering their people’s lives!

For example, according to the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem’s report the PA ‘demands’ a formal apology from Britain for the Balfour Declaration!

The well-worn adage that ‘history is written by the victors’ isn’t so much of a yardstick in these days because of the increased global ability to research and investigate in depth through cyber-technology. However, there are many who bury and distort facts to avoid painful truths and spread lies for perverted propaganda purposes – not only politicians and terrorists but also medintellectuals and historians, who should know much better but serve the evil one’s purposes instead.

Tonight BBC 2 broadcasts ‘The Balfour Declaration: Britain’s Promise to the Holy Land’ at 8pm. The Badly Bigoted Corporation’s tarnished reputation hardly makes this good, recommended viewing, especially if it is similar to BBC Radio Wales’ highly politicised account of the Declaration. Aired earlier this month, that programme included numerous omissions and inaccuracies according to BBC Watch’s in-depth review (here and here). This watchdog concludes,

‘…the aim of this programme appears to have been to steer BBC audiences towards the partisan view that – as Sarah Rowland-Jones inaccurately claimed in her introduction – the Balfour Declaration “sits behind the lasting conflict in the region”, while the relevant issue of Arab violence against Jews and later Israelis was once again whitewashed from a BBC account of history.’ (Emphasis mine)

Having investigated the modern history of Palestine in some depth I trust this brief note will warn you to keep an open mind and be alert to myths you may be exposed to. (NB. BBC reports less than 1% terrorist attacks against Israel in Q3 yet over 29% BBC News website covers security/terror issues – a disproportionate imbalance – and give excuses supportive of attackers for those it does cover.)

May you, my reader, discover the facts for yourself.

Also, please continue to the next post to read highly informative comments and about the ‘glytch’ preventing their receipt and automatic appearance at the foot of this post.

Time for the ‘house of cards’ to come down!

This prophetic promise comes courtesy of UK Prophetic Words and is very interesting in view of what Leisa Ebere and Charlie Shamp brought here and here from the Lord, and ‘Amen’ to Vida Caplin’s conclusion:

IT IS TIME FOR THE HOUSE OF CARDS TO COME DOWN

I saw in the spirit a house of cards and heard the old nursery rhyme ‘London Bridge is falling down‘ begin to play. A hand appeared and took a card from the bottom and the house fell. I looked at the cards as they lay in a heap and saw that they were all face cards, jacks, queens and kings. I then heard another old rhyme ‘Humpty Dumpty’ begin to play.

I asked Holy Spirit to reveal to me the meaning of the vision.

“This house of cards has been carefully built over the years by those in power, it has been shaken countless times, many have seen the cracks form but it has been fortified and strengthened by those who live within its walls. It is now the time for this house to come down and it shall be done by my hand. Many shall wonder at its falling and ask, How can this be? Should we not rebuild? Can we not establish again what once was? But it shall not come to pass for no man can put this back together.”

Again I pondered on Holy Spirit’s revelation but wondered why the two nursery rhymes had played. I was stirred to look at the words of each one. In London Bridge is falling down, the words repeat time and time again in each verse about rebuilding and making stronger the construction, even setting guards to watch over it. Yet when Humpty Dumpty falls the last line states, ‘All the King’s horses and all the King’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again!’

God is going to pull down something very big and it will not be rebuilt. This is an empire work of corruption that Holy Spirit is speaking of. The house of cards speaks of something that has been intricately built over the years, the face cards speak of those who are in powerful positions or are known. More than that Holy Spirit has not revealed but we watch for the dramatic fall to happen.

PS 1: Blog’s facebook remarks 31 Oct:

>Rachel Elliston: ‘I’m not familiar with the tv series House of Cards (it is a box set yet to be watched), however I was amused to see it in the news on my fb feed in the context of being ‘deeply troubled’ and the series being cancelled… just days after I first saw this word. Funny how things in the spiritual and the ‘natural’, or ‘symbolic natural’ mirror each other, often in very odd ways’.

> My response: ‘…I too am unfamiliar with US-version of ‘HoC’ and didn’t follow last night’s and today’s news…but noted front-page spread of today’s Telegraph on scandals relating to UK MPs and US government (albeit fictitious in latter). So it’s not only a demonic version of the UK/US spiritual link but also an instance of the Lord exposing corruption in every sphere, as in examples of fulfilled prophecies (see FP #10 entries).

William Booth’s prophecy of today’s dangerous apostasy

The First General of the Salvation Army, William Booth (1829-1912), is often quoted as shown above on foretelling changes in the approaching Twentieth century that could take place within churches.

His words are very accurate in prophesying global, liberal changes for the 21st Century Church, as reported in my recent posts. For more about this read Dr Joe Vankoevering’s brief article entitled 100 Year-Old Vision Coveys Sobering Warning to the Church.:

“I try to stay focused on what’s happening in the world as it relates to Bible prophecy—part of my assignment from God. And what’s occurring in the world today all points to the approaching return of Jesus Christ. However, another important part of my assignment is to deal with what God is saying as a warning to His church….”
