New things have come

Thank you Mike Parsons for this excellent reminder of who we are IN Christ – time to take stock and rethink, to be transformed by renewal of our minds (thereby able to check, ‘test’ and approve for ourselves what is Father’s will for us) Romans 12:1-2.

Comparing the old and the new

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come (2 Cor 5:17).

When Jesus came two thousand years ago, He came with a completely new perspective and radically reinterpreted everything the religious people thought they knew. In my experience, He still does the same today. Here are a few things He has shown us in a totally new light:

Prayer – we used to pray from earth asking for God’s help from heaven, hoping that God would hear us from a distance. The new way is to come to meet Him face to face, to come boldly to the throne of grace, sit on His lap and talk to Him.

Revival – this is such a huge desire and expectation among the Christian community…

Politician proposes Genesis and Christ’s teaching for New Era economic model

Absolutely amazed upon checking updates this morning on Jonathan Ely’s Why Leave The EU? to hear a Member of Parliament explaining why the Bible’s principles of free-will and morality are the only basis for our economic future!!

Watch this 5-minute video-clip from the Institute of Economic Affairs facebook page of Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, an ardent advocate of Brexit, addressing delegates in the Think Tent at the recent Conservative Party Conference.

He unequivocally states why the Garden of Eden and the fundamental instructions of Jesus are highly relevant as the basis of a free-market economy, and thus upon post-Brexit success for Britain:

This is exceptionally relevant to my previous posts on prophetic visions for a new era in our society and church, together with a ‘new wineskins’ theology on how we can be part of and enable the fulfillment of those prophecies, including for ‘Brexit’ and its challenge  to churches as ‘an act of God’!

The Hallmark of the New

After having looked at the dozens of prophecies for a new era in church and society we now need to consider the ‘nuts & bolts’ of how we can assist their fulfillment. In this post Mike Parsons brings practical instruction for doing so based upon our identity in Christ.

What is the ‘new wine’?

In this series of posts we are looking at new wine and new wineskins. Last time we saw how the new wineskin is each one of us, both individually and coming together as a new order ekklesia, but what is this new wine? What does it represent? Here is some of what I have seen (and if you will engage with God for yourself, I am sure you will see some of this and more besides):

    • New governmental mandates and new government patterned after heaven. New revelation and understanding of how to expand the kingdom, subdue and rule from a new heavenly perspective of servant leadership.
    • New values and ideals. Jesus introduced the manifesto of the kingdom, a completely new way of living. As we have seen, the ekklesia is to be a reflection of heaven’s values, an embassy…

Jarrod Cooper: a fresh prophetic vision of God’s glory invading society

Thank you to Suzanne Payne at UK Prophetic Words for the heads-up on Jarrod Cooper’s previous post Many Prophets are Prophesying a New Era!, and this extract from his 500: Are We At The Dawn of a New Era of Glory?

GLORY ARISING – A FRESH PROPHETIC VISION OF GOD’S GLORY INVADING EVERY SPHERE OF SOCIETY

This summer (2017) God has been speaking to me about a new era of outpouring that is growing in these coming decades, following the 500 year anniversary of the start of the Reformation.:

The Church will be filled with glory. A weighty sense of presence that has grown since the early 1900’s will begin to flood every corner of the Church – even the most stoic of church expressions will be found weeping at the wonder of His goodness again. Of course, there will be a backlash, that the coming glory is a figment of overly excited “Charismatic” imaginations, but the rising tide of glory and power will reach everyone who is thirsty – the coming move will be so obviously brought by the hand of heaven, that most of the Church will eventually open itself to new realms of power.

The Catholic and even other more “High” traditions will begin to be influenced powerfully by a new presence from heaven. The beauty of history and liturgy will blend with presence and glory, in ways many Pentecostals and Charismatics have thought impossible – and glory will rise upon the most historic of churches.

The Church will become more of a movement, and less of a club for members. She will pour out into the streets and the various strata of society, invading the very fabric of communities. She will meet in buildings large and small, facilitated by new types of church governmental structure, that are fluid, relational, releasing and non-bureaucratic.

Denominationalism will give way to Kingdom authority, led by servant apostles. Different streams or tribes in the Church will no longer be seen as competition, or lacking doctrinal accuracy. Instead, each tribe in the Kingdom will bring fresh emphasis, a strength that the whole Body of Christ needs. New authority structures will create Kingdom flow that lacks bureaucracy and releases the Saints to march across the land in power.

Church unity will flow as never before – such will be the harvest of souls. There will simply be too many people being saved to worry about the politics of pastoring. No longer will pastors fight over members – they will send each other members when their discipleship systems become overwhelmed by the sheer numbers.

Signs and wonders will become incredibly commonplace – even among children, and denominations formerly thought of as “dead”.

Indeed the dead will be raised, remarkable healings and miracles, transfigurations, men and women glowing at the presence of God. Some will be lifted off the ground, objects will move, the smoke of glory will fill streets, rooms, stadiums, parliaments. It will rain indoors – even oil will flow in miraculous ways. The wonders will cause worship to God and become so commonplace in certain locations, that they even seem to no longer fascinate the believers.

But these signs will fascinate the world and eventually be impossible to ignore, even by the most wary of media outlets.

POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT

God said “My glory will invade politics, carried on the shoulders of the ambassadors of heaven. Men and women who have met me in my glory, will be given the opportunity and mantle to stand for office and call my presence in.

Prayer meetings will run like rivers through parliament buildings. The EU will become engulfed in a war for its soul, as the Kingdom of light begins to penetrate even the darkest corners.”

The war for power in the boardrooms and cabinet rooms of the world will rage – but a new grace from my hand, that seems to melt even the greatest authorities will begin to invade meetings and conversations. While some have felt an “Elijah-like” confrontation will be the thing that turns men of power around, it will actually be a release of softening grace that will melt the hearts of kings and presidents. This is the age of grace and glory. Favour from the hand of God and man will be released in the earth, and the Church will be established as prince among the mountains.

A rising of a new type of missionary from the Church will begin to transform politics locally – strong, spiritual, biblically literate and fearless, the Church will march into the political arena ready to be a city on a hill.

MEDIA AND THE ARTS

The Church will become known again as a womb of creativity – art, music, words, media – Christian artists will be recognised as the source of immense creative expertise – as training schools in the arts arise in every city, nation and continent.

Film makers will send shockwaves throughout the world, explaining the fallen brokenness of man, melting the hardness of pride and releasing a longing for divine grace and healing. It is the arts, not politics, that will touch and reshape the morality of nations back to the image of God. Through stories, song, the retelling of divine history, the arts will capture the hearts of humanity and make many question the moral anarchy that has swept the world.

Stadiums will be used for church services again and again. The greatest auditoriums in the land will be filled. The arts and signs and wonders will run like streams, blending into a river of grace and glory that will capture the hearts of millions. Kings, presidents, the influencers of the world will weep in worship at the presence of God. Royalty will fall prostrate before the Fathers presence.

Revivals will accompany theatre companies. Anointed productions will be performed that lead the audience to overwhelming travailing of soul. Queues will go on endlessly as people long to be in God’s presence and hear the words once again. Audience members will convulse in their seats, cry out, rush the stage, run out to the streets, overcome by the Holy Spirit’s presence, in deep repentance. Some will be left overnight in the theatre, as the glory of God moves and crowds become immobile under the hand of God’s glory. In some areas this will become considered a normal response to the arts, such is the power and anointing of God at work.

Successful and renowned singers will begin to turn their concerts into evangelistic campaigns – even giving away bibles, taking altar calls and working with local churches. In some great auditoriums, multiple celebrities will give testimony and perform, with thousands giving their lives to Christ and leaving new churches planted.

Small radio stations will spring up across the earth broadcasting the Gospel, power and presence of God – telling the stories, releasing the testimonies of communities in regional areas. They will become the new pulpits of the airwaves. Thousands will be healed simply by listening, as the wisdom and wonder of God floods the airwaves. Some of these places will become so successful, larger stations will model themselves on the pattern of these glory stations.

GLORY INVADING EDUCATION

Schools, colleges and universities will be in upheaval at the moves of revival. Christian Unions will hold prayer meetings that fill up like assemblies. Outpourings of the Spirit will interrupt classes. Teachers will at times become preachers, as God’s presence moves so strongly in the classrooms. Many will fall to the floor overcome by God’s presence.

Great wars will be fought around the classrooms, as the enemy vies for the minds of the young – but the glory of God will prevail. Schools, colleges and universities will be swept up in visitations of glory so strong, that head teachers will be unable to finish prayers and speeches, and as they weep under the hand of God and the young people assembled begin to sing under the infilling of the Spirit.

“Missionary” will become a common recommendation for careers advice – the hunger for millions to carry God’s glory to the ends of the earth will grow, as the compulsion of love drives a new generation to invade every last corner of the earth with the Gospel.

GOD AND MEDICINE

God’s glory will empty some hospitals. Saints will go in, and prayer will fast become another normalised route to wellness. There will be many times when wards are emptied by the visit of a group of glory carriers.

But what is more remarkable is that it will become acceptable again for doctors to pray and lay hands on the sick. They will see the dead raised, intensive care patients radically healed, and many will come to faith in hospital.

In many places, prayer will become activity accepted, taught and recommended as a legitimate means of healing. Some medical universities will specialise in prayer for healing, helping to release an army of “divine doctors” able to walk in miracles and medicine.

Some hospitals will develop “miracle teams” who are trained and released to move around the hospitals praying, caring and comforting the sick. Churches will be set up in hospital wings.

GOD AND THE FAMILY

The make up of the family will be restored not by the laws of man, but by a movement of grace upon the broken hearts of humanity. The oil of God’s grace will flow upon the earth, and through encounter after encounter, the hearts of humanity, so hungry for approval and acceptance, will be restored to the Father’s Heart.

There will be outpost, after outpost, where a restoration of families will become the norm; divorce will drastically reduce, fatherlessness will fade, sexual confusion will give way to peace and holiness. In some places it will be the Church that become the “father and mother” of communities, bringing stability, nourishment, approval, discipline and tenderness. The Church will seem, in some places, to be almost a parental figure in the nation, rather than an irrelevant relic. Adoption and fostering ministries will explode across church communities, as God sets the lonely in healthy families.

GOD’S GLORY ON BUSINESSES AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

Businessmen will be touched powerfully by glory, and become Generals of Commerce – releasing finances and resources into the global harvest. But not only will they resource ministries and churches, but their very businesses will become strongholds of the Kingdom, bringing societal transformation and change. Godly business men and women will be seen as spiritual elders in the cities, and many will run churches alongside, and even within, their businesses and staff. The commitment to transform a city or region will mean businesses become places of Kingdom rulership, to better advance the glory of God across an area.

The glory of God will disrupt the business day again and again! It will seem some leaders will have to trust that everything will get done, and profits will be made, as some will give up days to prayer and seeking God, allowing staff to be in God’s presence, rather than remaining on “the production line.” But these businesses will prosper greatly in God’s hand –bringing wealth and influence for the Kingdom. Habakkuk 2:14 states that, “The knowledge of the glory of the Lord is going to cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.”

Fulfilled prophecy #23 – British lion to roar

Thank you to Angela Jelf and sister Kerry for their ‘heads-up’ on the Foreign Secretary’s speech at yesterday’s Conservative Party Conference entitled, ‘Let That Lion Roar!’  BBC News video Boris Johnson: Let the British lion roar shows the standing ovation to his gentle albeit clarion-call’s conclusion:

“We are not the lion.

“We do not claim to be the lion.

“That role is played by the people of this country. But it is up to us now – in the traditional non-threatening, genial and self-deprecating way of the British – to let that lion roar.”  (Read full text here.)

Angela’s note concludes, ‘Wow! In light of Wendy Alec’s 2005 vision of Great Britain I am so struck that this cannot be a coincidence’. I agree it’s no coincidence at all.

There are two relevant parts of that extensive visionary prophecy, principally about the danger of the EU to Britain, the first part follows its opening vision and reads:

On a September shift for leaders of UK, USA & Israel; harvest and equipping for the battle

In Visions of Christian Warriors…, which included words from the Lord on His heavenly army as brought by Chris Bennett, I mused about whenever we’re away it’s intriguing to return home and compare impressions with others who’ve heard from the Lord. So we continue in that vein with another word Chris received at that time (published by UK Prophetic Words – emphases mine):

GOD’S HAND IS UPON THERESA MAY, DONALD TRUMP and BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, PLUS WORD TO THE CHURCH

There has been a shift in the atmosphere in the last couple of days. It seems to me that the intercession, the presence of the Lord, the worship, even signs and wonders following have increased to the point of seeming much more aggressive. The war in the heavenlies has increased as the Army of Heaven prepares the way for Holy Spirit to move. That’s what I’m getting from the Lord.

“As August becomes September, expect Me to move upon you in power. Expect to see your leaders, President Trump, Prime Minister May, and Prime Minister Netanyahu, move decisively to forestall moves by their enemies from bearing fruit. My hand is upon them”, says the Lord of Hosts, “and they shall not be overthrown by those seeking to overthrow the balance of world power.”

The Lord continued, “My church needs to be ready for the cry, ‘ALL HANDS ON DECK!’ and she needs to have intercessors praying and watchmen stationed on the walls. From your point of view, things are about to get ‘ugly’, but from My perspective, everything is on plan, on target, and ready to advance My Kingdom.

“My Spirit is ready to show you His power. He is ready to flood your nations with My presence; to begin the harvest. It has started in many places, but I am ready to change the face of My church for ever!” says the Lord. “Be prepared for changes – big far reaching changes. I am equipping the Church for war – all out war upon Christians by My enemies. Changes will be inevitable, unavoidable, and, to some, unpalatable. As I said to Joshua, so I say to this army, ‘Do not fear, be strong and very courageous, for every place you put your foot, that place I will give you!’”

He finished with this,

“This is your battle cry, Sound the trumpets! Every man to his station. The enemies of the Lord are about to attack but the battle is the Lords! It was won at Calvary.”

Hallelujah Church. Battle is joined! The Holy One of Israel is on the move!!!

Chris Bennett, 29th August 2017

A letter submitted to the Times for publication. 

Most noteworthy in view of what prophetical voices are bringing about the shaking of church and of society. See also Cranmer’s transcript and forthright commentary upon Piers Morgan’s self-righteous inquisition of our brother in Christ, If a bigot cannot become PM, why should one be allowed to become an MP?

National Day of Prayer for Great Britain – Friday 8th September

Courtesy of The Forge ministry:

‘Dovetail Shalom Ministries, along with David Hathaway and Dennis Greenidge, are calling for a National Day of Prayer for Great Britain; for Theresa May, Brexit, the unity of the UK, and for the nation to turn back to God and His Holy Word.

‘We have taken the Emmanuel Centre in Marsham Street London for Friday September 8th. The meeting will start at 10.30am and finish by 8.00pm. It will be a day of prayer and fasting.

‘God is speaking clearly – He says NOW! Time is running out and prayer is essential at this critical time. Following all the recent disasters our nation is in distress, being torn apart as never before. So we need to come together as His body to pray, to humble ourselves, repent and plead for God to have mercy to heal our land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.

‘It is interesting to note that September 8th 1940 was the National Prayer Day that led to victory in the Battle of Britain. It is exactly 77 years ago in the year 5777.’

Full details for participating in this nationally important event may be read in Dovetail Shalom Ministries’ urgent Prayer Alert.

To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’? That’s the Big Ben question as the nation waits…

August is renowned as the ‘silly season’ for odd and weird stories because of the holiday period’s dearth of normal, newsworthy events. Yesterday’s banner headline shown below seems simply part of that season because of the Health & Safety aspects – but that belies the status of a significant symbol of our nation’s identity.

The disruption of our famous clock’s mechanism strikes at our heart but not necessarily for the reasons stated in the Telegraph, its editorial and news of MPs’ anger at being kept in the dark over details of the proposed work!  [Today: Theresa May says “It can’t be right for Big Ben to be silenced for four years”.]

Regular readers of this blog are well aware not only of Big Ben’s symbolic importance but also and more especially of the many words and dreams about it at the prophetical ‘midnight hour’. So whatever the outcome of the present rumpus, it won’t surprise the Lord for He could be in the discussions and use them to bring about His purposes, or else work around them to achieve His sovereign will for Britain, thereby getting us fully ‘in sync’ with His will. (As in the word for 2014-16 brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone in her ‘Clarion Call’.)

Tuesday 15 August ‘Final’ morning broadsheet edition (tap for digital version)

It wasn’t until later yesterday that I caught up with news and activity on this blog and was very pleased to notice a number of past posts had shot into the popular posts listing. So, I stuck them temporarily to the home page for quick reference and now replace them with this post.

A summary of some points which may be applicable should thus prove useful:

  • R Piercey 2016-17 – “…Interesting in view of the picture I received some years ago of the Lion of Judah hovering over Big Ben; his huge paw was about to hit the clock face, where the hands pointed at 2 minutes to midnight. (I somehow knew it was midnight rather than midday).” …I believe it’s now important to share more widely what Rosemary added. Upon phoning for permission to publish today she responded without any hesitation, “Absolutely! now’s the time!”…“A few notes on the picture that hit me this morning. Someone whose opinion I value gave me a word a few weeks ago that I was a General in the King’s army; this morning I was led to read the story of Gideon again, and was reminded of his requests from God for signs. I then asked the Lord for a sign that would confirm whether or not the “General” word was true. After a short time a very vivid picture came to me of a huge bowl suspended on 3 chains above the Houses of Parliament; the bowl swung in the winds of secularism and resulting godless laws. I felt the Lord saying that this was a bowl of his wrath, which of course is a recurrent theme in the Bible – bowl, cup etc. This is not to negate in any way the positive prophecies we are receiving; many of us know that the spiritual atmosphere has changed, and we are seeing remarkable answers to prayer in our country. Nevertheless we are also called to repent, especially for what has happened in the churches, and I feel a huge urgency for this; we are in danger of losing the blessings if we are simply going to rest on the blessings. This is vitally important and I feel there is no time to lose; the bowl is tipping, and we could feel the results at any time.”
  • RB/TPuccio, Feb 2017 – ‘Today, as I prepare this compilation I draw Tony’s attention to Rosemary’s reminder on the previous blog of her picture of Big Ben and he asks for my ‘take’ on this and “What’s the Lord saying to you?” Well I didn’t have time to even think and ask Him, but was just running with my spirit’s ‘gut instinct’ as a ‘joiner of prophetic dots’ (as Glasgow calls me). So I reply that I’m busy compiling this account and will seek Him later – BUT then get a quick nudge to add, “‘…immediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now! Tony replies, “Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.”
  • T Puccio March 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.’  
  • C Shamp June 2017 – Keep your eyes upon Big Ben something supernatural is about to be seen. As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say, “My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Please note full historical listing including relevance to the 2005 & 2017 terrorist attacks plus informative contributions in Dreams & Visions of Big Ben at the Midnight Hour. Also consider reading, Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben.

Let us take all those words received and delivered to the Lord in prayer and wait upon Him.

Lastly, it’s particularly fascinating the change in the clock’s chiming set for 21st August is one month to the day before Rosh Hashana, the ‘head of year’ for Jewish New Year 5778, with its unconnected relevance to Biblical End-times prophesied in  1 Thess 5:3 – ‘(The Day of the Lord will come…) while people are saying “Peace and Safety”…!!  

More on this another time…

Fulfilled prophecies #10 & #13: a 6th time! – corruption in and fall of the EU

It’s time to remind ourselves of a couple of prophetic words of the many on the EU and Brexit and realise they continue to show the Lord’s hand at work in their fulfillment.

First, the awesome warning David Noakes delivered in November 2015 urging us to leave the EU (see UK/EU in/out #4). I’ve emphasised the more pertinent phrases:

“Nation of Britain, I have loved you with a love which has not ceased, despite the state of apostasy and degradation into which you have fallen. My anger towards those church leaders who have taught false things in my Name, and encouraged others to believe and act as they do, is intense and my judgment upon them will be severe. Yet I have compassion upon those who have been like sheep without godly shepherds; and my heart still longs to exercise mercy upon a nation whose forefathers upheld my Name and took my Word to the ends of the earth; a nation whose belief in the truth of my Word framed godly laws and inspired a culture of uprightness.

“Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

“Hear Me, O once godly nation and respond to my call, or you also will come to ruin in that same judgment of destruction. This is not my will for you, but you must choose the course which you will take. I urge you to respond to Me and choose life under my hand of discipline and protection, rather than death in the disaster which is even now coming upon Europe.”

Then in May 2016 in mulling over events I asked Is The Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? First UK, then USA – next EU??  It proved to be a ‘semi-conscious’ prophecy.

Both words quickly came into play, as in Fulfilled Prophecies #13 and #10 respectively – and more soon manifested (here, here and here). We now have yet another fulfillment – the 6th!!

Readers interested in Brexit may have kept abreast of developments regularly reported on Jonathan Ely’s excellent Facebook resource, Why Leave EU? There you’ll have noticed Poland’s objections to EU judicial reforms (Tusk threatens to kick Poland out of EU) and that Spain closes its border with Africa because the EU’s failure to stem the mass influx of migrants.  Also, Poland and Hungary form new eastern bloc ‘in bid to OVERTHROW Brussels‘ and professor Martin Goodwin claims President of European Commission ‘Junker is deeply worried’ Brussels is crumbling and EU is panicking.

And today’s Telegraph banner headline emblazoned across its wide front-page reads (tap/click for link), EU chiefs in expenses scandal.

The broadsheet’s inside double-page spread ‘How the EU tried to hide £500,000 bill for two months’ travel’ asks how much did each of the 28 Commissioners spend on travel? Deputy political editor Steve Swinford’s report opens by referring to an executive director of Access Info Europe’s attempt to show journalists from Eastern Europe and the Balkans about the availability of EU information,

‘When campaigners first asked the European Commission for details about the travel expense claims of the 28 commissioners in May 2014, they thought it would be a straightforward matter. “They told me (Helen Darbishire) they couldn’t give me the information because it was a question of privacy and cost. I was totally shocked”.

‘Three years and more than 190 requests for information later, the EU has finally relented and agreed to publish the data – two months worth from 2016…’

That’s just relating to travel over a short period – what about other expenses at other times? Also, it’s failed to produce properly audited accounts for far too many years – [PS: ‘the European Court of Auditors have refused to sign off the bloc’s accounts for over 20 years due to continued “material level of irregularity”!‘ – Asa Bennett.]

This new exposure is absolutely no surprise in view of the EU’s lack of accountability to the people it purports to represent – which is one reason why sensible Britons voted to get out!

I cannot but conclude this exposure is a part of the Lord’s judgement against the EU.

Sex-Synod & Parliamentarians in Jesus’ and St Paul’s End-times prophecies – #2

The Ark Encounter, Ken Ham Facebook – click/tap for link

Continuing from #1 – for ease of reference, the prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – that Day (of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’

Re-reading that scripture upon learning of July’s Sex-Synod shenanigans something struck me from each its verses, namely:

  1. the CofE is in full-blown apostasy and thus will get at best a full-blown shaking down or, at worst, a deepening schism between orthodox and permissive clergy!
  2. someone will soon be on the world scene and manifest the antichrist spirit as ‘the son of perdition’, but is satan using the current situation as a ‘trial-run’ of what’s foretold by using ‘unwitting’ secular leaders as its mouthpiece??

Important to note that I’m NOT saying those people are demonic or demon-possessed. Disciples of Christ are only too aware of the nature of the spiritual battle being waged worldwide for everyone’s spirit, souls and minds – it’s influencing almost every aspect of our lives. The not-yet saved are thereby highly vulnerable and susceptible to satanic deceptions and all too easily fall prey to the enemy of our souls. It wants nothing less than our destruction, spiritual enslavement and eventual incarceration in hell.

PARLIAMENTARY IMPLICATIONS

In tandem with the General Synod’s formal declaration on banning Conversion Therapy, we see humanistic notions of equality, diversity,  rights and sexuality permeating ‘progressive liberal’ goals. John Bercow, long-standing LGBT activist and the Speaker of the House Commons, addressed Pink News at a reception in Parliament. Although speaking in an unofficial capacity, in view of that Parliamentary position his opinion may be deemed as being an ‘ex-officio’ statement. Premier quotes him as saying,

“We are marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.

“There’s always a balance to be struck – we don’t want to behave as though it’s all over, that everything has been done. Nothing remains – because that isn’t true.

“I still feel that we can only really have equal marriage when you can b***** well get married in a church if you want to do so.”

‘When the law changed in 2013, churches were offered a protection that they wouldn’t be forced to host gay marriages in their building.” 

[Pink News reports: “‘I suppose in marriage terms there will only really be complete legal equality when it is permissible for a gay couple to marry as a matter of right in a church.” Referring to the Church of England’s clause, he added: “I always felt it was a pity when the same-sex marriage legislation went through that as a way of accommodating some of the church interests there was that compromise which detracted a little bit from the concept of complete equality”.’]

Blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ takes on the case of Justine vs Justin: the ‘not yet’ and ‘never’ of same-sex marriage in the Church of England – his report merits reading in full but here’s its first paragraphs (emphases mine) – note the ‘sacred cow’ of ‘equality’:

‘Cranmer’ clarifies on PM May ‘instructing’ C of E on marriage

Cranmer succinctly deals with the ‘fake news’ delirium by correctly quoting the source of such claims in Theresa May did not instruct C of E to allow gay marriage.:

‘…Do you see a ‘should’, a ‘must’ or an ‘ought’ in there regarding the future of gay marriage or blessing? “This has to be a matter for the Church,” the Prime Minister said. Could she have been any clearer? Has her position on this not been utterly consistent? “I strongly support equal marriage, and I know that these debates will continue, but it will have to be for the church as a whole to decide if it wants to make a change to its canon law,” she said only a few months ago. The church as a whole: Theresa May has absolutely no intention of forcing the Church of England to perform gay marriage (or blessing), and absolutely no desire to lecture it in the way it should go….’
