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

God’s spirit is beginning to move in the UK and beyond: THE Great Awakening

Whilst focused upon the Lion Bites post I got ‘nudged’ to visit this new blog and so pleased to find this item harmonises with it. Thank you for such well-written observations and insights.

Faith Style

revival

Where the spirit of God is, there is change and freedom (John 3:8). I am aware of a major sense of change and atmosphere beginning to happen here in the UK and globally. There appears to be a spiritual battle happening behind the scenes. We need to be aware, ‘our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms’ (Ephesians 6:12). We are reminded to put on the full armour of God in word and spirit, even as I write this, there is a rising of spirit within me that is calling me to pray constantly and fiercely for events local and nationally. I am hoping my spiritual brothers and sisters will join me in this fight for revival too and be ready, for the season has…

John Kilpatrick: Midnight Words for 2017 and Beyond

Clock from 4Signposts

Readers will recall the 20 prophetic words Revd John Kilpatrick was given over Christmas 2015 for 2016 and beyond, especially the awesome prediction of nations being “shaken” and kingdoms “jolted”, as happened last year across Europe and the United States! (See Fulfilled Prophecies #7.)

In his Sunday service on Inauguration weekend John remarked about the powerful wake-up call he’d received that necessitated furiously writing down all he was given. Here is the published version that he delivered last Sunday. Those annotated <NB> I will cover in an another post, but you may know the word about Jordan is especially pertinent in view of King Abdullah’s visit this week to the White House, as reported in World Watch Daily.

A MIDNIGHT INTERRUPTION

JohnK 214_logoOne night this week, I went to bed at 9:00pm, which is very unusual for me. I was very tired from traveling and a busy schedule. I was awakened by the Spirit of the Lord speaking with a strong expression, and He said…

“At midnight, a cry was made, ‘Behold the Bridegroom comes, go out to meet him.’ Then they arose, both the wise and the foolish. They awoke from slumber.”

I sat straight up in my bed and looked at my digital clock. It read 12:00 midnight!

It was a very sobering moment for me.  Holy Spirit revealed to me that His people have indeed awakened from slumber! Many things were weighed in the balances, but the people of God rose up, and God heard their cry.

2017words-john-kilpatrick-ministries

The Lord says,

“Therefore, I have set before My people open doors—not just a door, but  many  doors. I am opening doors of opportunity that have not been opened to you before. Because there has been a great change of heart, I have hastened to answer. Many have awakened, but they have not arisen. My word now is, ‘Arise!’ Do not return to slumber as in times past, because there will be many opportunities that I am opening to this nation, and very effectual doors that I am opening to My Church. These doors will lead to greater resources than you have known. It is important not to be timid, intimidated or fearful. This is not one of the four seasons I have established in the earth, but this is a special season. It is a time of My choosing. As the men of Issachar had understanding of the times to know what to do, so I will give you that very same insight if you will ask of me. I will direct you and show you.”

CLOSED SOCIETIES ARE GOING TO OPEN

“Remember Naomi of old. After a painful season of loss, heartbreak and heartache, she heard I was visiting My people and that bread was readily available. She heard this news in a bleak place, a forsaken place, filled with reversal and hopelessness. Upon the report of fresh visitation, she arose and stirred herself. She left the desolate place and came to Judah. My people have been desolated and have suffered. I am going to cause the news of a fresh visitation to spread quickly—God is visiting His people once again!

“The thing that will mark this move of My Spirit to distinguish it from all others is that I am going to move mightily in closed nations and closed societies. The word of spiritual bread among these starving and closed nations will create spiritual refugees, which will immediately create movement of entire nations of hungry and spiritually starving refugees toward the outstations of fresh bread.

“My Spirit will spread like a fire through empires, dynasties, tribes, clans, and among the
heathen as well. I will set My table before them, and they will taste of My goodness and
experience My mercy just as Naomi arose and brought her daughter-in-law, Ruth, to the place of visitation. It was there that Ruth was joined with Boaz, her redeemer.

“I tell you, many will believe this good news to be a rumor, but they will continue to hear the reports until they will come and see for themselves the wonders of the Lord. It will cause a great stir among the nations.

“I am going to open three doors:

  1. I am going to unseat powers and principalities in those regions that have long deprived the people of My presence and of My Spirit. A brief, but widespread harvest will occur. A once closed society of unbelievers will now have the opportunity to hear and to believe upon the Lord Jesus.
  2. There will also be a movement of laborers, those that I have chosen and
    called to work the fields of harvest. This is their time. This is what they have
    awaited, many since childhood. This is their time. They will bring their sickles
    and reaping tools, and they shall come rejoicing, bringing their sheaves with
    them during this harvest. There will be great excitement!
  3. There will also be a great commotion of the leaders of the harvest taking
    their places. They shall direct the harvest and place the laborers where they
    best fit. They are My apostolic leaders overseeing this last day harvest. They
    will know the mind of the Spirit. They will know who is to go where, and who
    is to do what. There will be resources and wealth to fund the harvest of the
    ages. The newcomer and the veteran soul winner will be paid the same wage
    in that day.”

This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes. In that day, the knowledge
of the glory of the Lord shall fill the earth as the waters cover the sea.”

MINISTRY MADE EASY

In the day of harvest, although brief, it will be said that it has never been so easy to preach, pray or prophesy. There will be no toil in leading the heathen to the wells of living water. The sick will be released. The bound will be easily delivered, and the lost will readily comprehend the way. This Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then the end shall come…Even so, Lord Jesus!

THE JEWS’ DAY OF VISITATION  <NB>

Most importantly, there will be a long awaited harvest that will begin in the land of Israel. The light of salvation will shine upon the Jews. As God reveals His love for His people through a chain of miraculous deliverances, the house of Israel will begin to see Jehovah’s salvation in a new light through Jesus’ shed blood. This will surely be the beginning; but full salvation shall come at a later appointed time for the Jewish people alone, and Israel shall experience a rebirth in one day.

MUSLIMS WILL RECEIVE THE MESSAGE  <NB>

Because the Lord is no respecter of persons, a GREAT shaking is coming to the Muslim nations. It will be sudden! It will be an unexpected and unexplained shaking that will redefine many Muslim nations and their leadership structures. The Lord is now in the process of shaking institutions, cultures, dialects, nationalities, governments, political structures and their frameworks, which men have trusted through generations. Many of them will be so shaken they cannot survive the shaking. Holy Spirit will even destabilize power structures, and many of those things that men have relied upon will ultimately fail. Truth will grip men’s hearts like a vice, even the unbelievers’ hearts and the hearts of the heathen. Ears will be opened to hear, even the ears of the unregenerates.

WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE

RESTLESS FOR A REASON

You are in ministry, and you are restless where you are. You have reached a place where you have peaked in your vision and capacity. That is all right because God is opening a door for you by the month of July, and you will walk through that door. This door will stretch you — stretch your mind and stretch your confidence. You will be forced to change your mind about things, which you need to change your mind about. As a matter of fact, you will feel overwhelmed, not really knowing if you can do this. Indeed, it is an open door Holy Spirit has opened, which He could not have offered you until now because your frustration has peaked. You are now in holy desperation, and Holy Spirit will use that to remove you, so He can move you through this open door.

SISTER BLESSINGS

God has promised to open your womb, yet you are desperate and discouraged. With God, all things are possible. God opened Leah’s womb and blessed her, as He will open your womb and bless you. He will also bless your sister who cannot have children. He will remember her and give her the desire of her heart as well.

CLEANSING THE BLOODLINE 

Blindness has plagued your large biological family, and generational curses have plagued your bloodline; but Holy Spirit is now removing the blindness because of your prayers, and they will see of the goodness of God for the very first time. It will remove the questions of past and present generations. God has heard and answered. Revelation will penetrate them, and they will see and understand. Great freedom and ministry will come upon this family bloodline that was once considered almost beyond hope.

“I now have servants poised that I will use to break the entrenched lies and remove
the scales from their eyes as Ananias did from Saul of Tarsus. This will not be a single
person that will be freed, but an entire family. I, the Lord, already have plans to use
them to set many other captives free. These captives will receive ministry by those
who were once bound as they were bound. This will be the doings of the Lord, and
none will be able to resist or stop it.”

SHY SEERS AND INTIMIDATED PROPHETS

You have been frustrated and have felt rejected and left out—you have felt like a misfit, but because of the integrity and goodness of your heart and your unwavering love for truth, Holy Spirit is now opening to you visions, interpretation of dreams and even words of knowledge. Each time, as you release them, it will expand you, and you will become more and more comfortable with this gift; whereas before, you halted and had faltering confidence.

“I am going to open your eyes as Elisha’s servant, Gehazi, had his eyes opened to My
world of glory and power. You will become bolder and bolder and will not retreat again to the intimidation of the past. This will be very easy, so easy that you will not struggle with the transformation. It will be as though you were always this free. If you believe, you will see! Confirm yourself to yourself. Do not speak doubt to yourself any longer. The doubt delays your usefulness among My people.”

SILENT TREATMENT

Satan has attempted to still your voice. He has tried to destroy your ability to speak. You have been greatly alarmed at the loss of your ability to communicate by both word and song. It seemed as though you would lose vocal communication.

“I have already prepared those, which I will use to restore not only your voice, but also the air flow you need in order to be heard and have the success you have been destined to have. Do not fear things as they are, but rejoice that I have reached you with this sure word of deliverance. Your voice shall be heard again!”

STAY WHERE YOU ARE 

Your temptation is to go down to Egypt. You desperately want to depart, but you must realize that your increase will come by staying where you are. For Isaac, the hundredfold increase was found upon the famine of yesterday. The boughs of the trees will once again be found with blooms, and the corn that wilted and wasted in the fields shall surge to life with bountiful supply.

“Do not think famine, or talk famine. Lift up your eyes so that you may experience the plenty, for the plenty shall indeed replace famine. For right where you are is right where I have placed you, and that is where you will flourish—not in Egypt. BE STILL!”

YOUR INVESTMENT IS NOT IN VAIN

You suffered the loss of an investment that you have poured into, but the Lord is not
talking here today of a financial investment. He is speaking this word to you. You have invested in someone. That someone has been proud against the Lord and had a negative change of attitude. They have forgotten their roots and have violated your confidence and your dependence upon them.

“Be aware that I am also aware. I see, and I know. You are not to fret or forget that what I have promised I will perform. Your heart shall rejoice again. These matters are in My hands.”

MISDIRECTED GRIEF 

“You have been grieving over someone that I have deliberately removed from your life. You could not see what I could see, nor could you hear what I was hearing. How long will you grieve over Saul? I have a David, and he will do all My counsel. He will do all that I have commanded. All you have known was Saul. When you see David, do not laugh, for he will not be what you expected; but he will be what I have directed. How long will you grieve? I am admonishing you this day to lift your eyes past the present grief and simply believe! This one that I have chosen for you is far different from what you would expect, but he has the heart, the skill and the ability to grow with you. He will protect your interests and hold up your hands in the day of battle. Prepare your mind now to not look for the things you are used to looking for, or you will miss him. My anointing is already on him for this season.”

LAND TRANSFER

A tract of land is going to come into your possession. It will be a gift. The possibilities will be limitless, but Holy Spirit says He will give you direction upon possession of it. You were not even expecting it, but this word will make much more sense to you by October.

A CONFUSED SON 

You are a pastor and an effective minister. You and your wife are grieved and burdened for a son that is showing signs of gender confusion. This son is uniquely talented and extremely gifted, but a seed of deception was sown into him early. This confusion has produced a wrong perception of who he is, as well as his destiny. The Lord would have you know that he will pull through this, and your worry and uncertainty will not continue. There is one coming into his life who will be the source Holy Spirit uses to bring him into alignment with his identity. It will be the exact right time, and the exact one I have sent, to bring truth and healing to him. It will settle him, and thereby, settle you and your wife in the process.

“I have My hand upon him, and you know that I do. I have proved Myself to you many
times. This will take some time, but in time you will see My faithfulness.”

LOVE NEVER FAILS

“Just because the marriage failed does not mean that you are a failure. It simply means it failed. My plan for you did not fail when your marriage did. I know your heart, and I know the way you have chosen. It is the way of honor and kindness. You have preserved your dignity as well as your husband’s. Love covers a multitude of sin. Look forward, there is love awaiting you once again. I will remember you in that day, and you will recall this word to you. It will bring peace and hope to you!”

FAR AWAY PLACES

“You would never have chosen to relocate so very far away. You would never have
chosen that country to rebuild your life, but it, indeed, is the door I am opening. You have not even considered this opportunity because it had not presented itself to you. These people will become your people, and you will be a defender. Your gifting will be a wall to which they cling. You will never have this opportunity where you reside now. I will give you a heart for them. You will find much love and acceptance. You will know this opportunity, for it will present itself in the eighth month, the month of August—a time of new beginnings for you.”

MISTAKEN OPPORTUNITY

You have come into a large sum of money, and it is indeed a blessing from the Lord. However, you are going to be confronted with what seems to be a great opportunity for investment, but it is not an opportunity.

“It is a distraction. You must listen to My Holy Spirit. Hold fast to what you have. Do not be anxious. Do not be impetuous. I will guide you with My eye, and you will have great peace, which you presently do not have.”

A SANCTUARY COUNTRY <NB>

I keep hearing from the Lord, “Jordan, the land bordering Israel.”

Jordan shall be visited. It will endure a shaking, but it shall, unexpectedly, become a
sanctuary country. Jordan, you will be remembered by the Lord, and you will be an
important instrument in His hand. Remember, you will become a sanctuary country!

SMOOTH OPERATOR

You have been so lonely and even insecure regarding your future. Recently, someone
has entered your space, and it certainly has boosted your hope and self-confidence.
There has been limited contact, and you desire a deeper relationship. This is a word
of caution from Holy Spirit because of His love for you and the prayers of many who love you. This word is a confirming word to you for you have already begun to feel uneasy and question the relationship. If you pursue this relationship, it will be as though you are embracing a snake. The poison from this union will affect you, your well being, as well as destroy the relationship with your family that you love and cherish in your life. It will be an embarrassing mistake. He has covert intentions. Temptation is usually connected to serpents.

“So be aware, I have chosen a compatible companion for you. Wait on the Lord.”

WEAVING A WEB

I see a pastor’s chair on a church platform, and underneath his chair, is a series of webs. Someone, or some consolidated effort, seeks to spin things against the man of God. You have a very strong anointing, and for some time, you have been sensing this drag upon your ministry. You will not be surprised when you learn the details, and you will learn them. So be prepared.

“I will bring it to light, and they will be exposed, says the Lord, and you will more than prevail. I am giving you and your wife a new network of friends that I will bring to you, including effective and insightful intercessors to pull the webs apart before they have an opportunity to establish their deceit and confusion again. Do not be moved by what you learn. It is already coming to naught, and you will triumph over it all.”

TRUMP AND HIS GENERALS <NB>

As I was riding along the highway last Thursday evening, I was engaged in conversation by cellphone with my administrator regarding budget matters. While I was listening to her answer a question, I heard Holy Spirit interrupt and ask, “How do you spell Truman?” I thought for a brief moment, and I said, “T-R-U-M-A-N.”

Then He asked me, “How do you spell Trump?” I said, “T-R-U-M-P.”

I immediately made the connection. He then proceeded to ask me, “Who did President Truman lean on to help the Jews get back into the Holy Land?” I said, “General Eisenhower.” The Lord then said to me, “I have raised up Trump and have given him generals to lean on to help him defend the Jews and keep them in their land. General Eisenhower brought them in, and these contemporary generals will keep them there. What was, will be again.”

He then asked me, “How do you spell Truth?” I spelled it, “T-R-U-T-H.”

The Lord said that He is changing the appetites of people. Instead of rejoicing in rumors and lies, the people will now become excited to hear truth again. They will love the truth and reject the lies, as well as the liars. This will not be true of everyone in every place; but a shift has already happened, and it happened last week.

“Truth had fallen in the streets, but I am lifting it up again; and it shall cause great rejoicing. I, the Lord, have done this by My own power, by My right arm of might and by My justice.”

Prophetic word on the great urgency of these End-times

Clock from 4SignpostsAnother ‘timely’ word like ‘The White Horse’ brought by Chris Bennett via UK Prophetic Words and “giving God all the glory”, and which sparks my spirit (emphases added):

There is So Little Time Left Before the Marriage of the Bride and the Lamb

I saw a large clock ticking loudly. Unlike many large clocks, there were three hands indicating hours, minutes, and seconds. The hour hand stood straight up. The minute hand stood almost as straight. The second hand moved everything into that final minute before midnight. “The clock has passed the hours. It has passed the minutes. It is down to the last few seconds.” said the Lord. “So little time left before the marriage of the Bride and Groom. So many guests still to accept their invitations”.

“TIME TO GO INTO THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS TO INVITE WHOEVER YOU FIND THERE TO ATTEND THE WEDDING. TIME TO TAKE TO THE STREETS TO TELL A HURTING PEOPLE ABOUT ME! TIME TO STOP PROCRASTINATING AND TIME TO START DOING THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST!

“WHEN WILL MY PEOPLE REALISE THE LATENESS OF THE HOUR? WHEN WILL THEY LISTEN TO MY PROPHETS? WHEN WILL THEY UNDERSTAND THE URGENCY OF THE TIMES? “

2 Timothy 4:1-5

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

Chris Bennett 2 Jan’17

 

On visions, maps, timing and God’s jigsaw of harvest of souls in New Britain

Hands Holding World by TwobeePrediction, prophetic words and visions are pieces of God’s invisible jigsaw puzzle. The spirit of wisdom taught Solomon ‘It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings’ (Prov 25:2).

Moreover, as mature sons and daughters of The King, His Holy Spirit may enable us to discern pieces and aspects of the immense invisible jigsaw He’s laying down – and it seems to be of the harvest foretold in scripture.

We need to consider some recent, related events first:

Yinka Oyekan’s vision of the coming harvest of souls in New Britain isn’t the only one to have been received by Christians. His, however, connects into a developing one that came to me before and after the EU Referendum.

Yinka posted on Facebook 4th August about angelic armies, areas being newly blessed and the harvest. The next day Veronika West brought A Now Word for the UK. which opens by referring to the ongoing spiritual battle that I’ve covered elsewhere, and then goes on,

‘Listen!…Listen! Heaven heralds new hope, new life and UNPRECEDENTED HARVEST IN THIS HOUR“! I see battle lines drawn in the spirit…’

I quote extracts from this magnificently heartening word but,  to gain a proper appreciation of the outcome, I strongly recommend your reading it in full from the above-titled link:

HARVEST FIELDS!

‘I wanted quickly share something with you all, this morning in my prayer time, I had a short vision, and in this vision I was shown what looked like a LARGE FIELD OF CORN, THE HARVEST LOOKED READY. AS I LOOKED UPON THE FIELD I COULD SEE WHAT APPEARED TO BE WARRING ANGELS STANDING IN THE FIELD, AS I LOOKED AT THEM, EACH ANGEL PERFECTLY AND STRATEGICALLY POSITIONED, SOME FACED THE EAST, SOME FACED THE WEST, SOME FACED THE SOUTH AND THE NORTH…

‘My interpretation the HARVEST IS READY, AND HELL IS NOT HAPPY!!! I submit Satan has assigned His demonic cohorts to the fields that are READY for Harvest. There is battle over the United Kingdom that is raging in the heavens in this hour for this ETERNAL HARVEST…’

Personally, this is exceptionally encouraging because the parable Jesus taught about the harvest in the ‘Gospel According to an Inland Revenue Tax-collector’ (see Matthew 13:) prompted my starting to write with ‘The End-game is Now in Play’. [If you’re new here you may like to check this out at 7th Anniversary of Writing, which gives a useful introduction to personal themes that sometimes pop up, as now: ‘God-incidents & Jigsaws’.]

NOW, get ready to find out how eight pieces of an invisible jigsaw came together:

Teamwork - prophetic pieces come together

Bringing prophetic pieces together

Lead-in to EU-Refendum 

The day I blogged about previous Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s prediction of popular opinion about the European Union along the lines what prophet Daniel foresaw (see Daniel chapter 7) we went to Winchester for an evening meeting of intercessors. Our friend Neil Mackereth, whose summary Stay or Leave? was one of the first of many blogs on the EU membership referendum, had mentioned that gathering and we thought it appropriate to attend.

That day I published Vision of Spiritual Battle for Britain’s Birthright in which Veronika West claims to have seen mighty warrior angels in a fierce battle and tug of war over the future destiny and sovereignty of the UK, wherein she saw:

“A Mighty Guardian Angel stood hundreds of feet tall and with eyes of blazing fire: he stood with a raised sword and shield which completely overshadowed the whole Nation of Britain”.

At the evening’s inter-church intercession a couple of folk brought scripture and prayers about our spiritual birthright. Towards the close I referred in passing to the vision of UK’s Guardian Angel but, at the very mention, a couple of sisters were affected so strongly in their spirits they immediately reacted physically. (Like when the Lord spoke to Nina during Trooping of the Colour and she saw the scrolling text: This is MY country!)

Winchester – 1st jigsaw piece

Other than with Neil and convener Caroline, I haven’t yet shared what I’d ‘seen’ throughout the meeting in Winchester Vineyard church. Here’s my email to her:

‘Whilst we stood in a rough circle I kept getting the impression of a huge outline of Britain hazily hovering a foot or so off the floor between us. It was as though we were standing as giants all around and looking down on Britain with our backs turned towards Europe and Scandinavia…

‘I was positioned by the ‘Isle of Wight’ and, after Neil read about Jesus telling Satan to get behind him, I was moved to declare that S in Europe get behind and away from Britain.

‘Also, I saw a huge tear through the ‘map’ and emerge over a larger area (ie North Downs to Scottish borders?) then when I saw a similar but very clear open vision 12 years ago  (https://richards-watch.org/2011/08/18/comments-on-sharon-stone-collapse-of-society/ refers)

This latest was a faint yet persistent, transparent outline of the English, Scottish and Welsh coastline. I noticed it was as though on a large map-table in a ‘situation’ or war-room and we could perhaps be engaged in strategic planning.

At the close of the meeting it suddenly ripped open, as though an immense and invisible tin-opener had pierced and prized open most of the land. I saw torn parts of metal curling upwards along the length of the country north of Salisbury Plain and across from Swindon area to west of London. The colour of the land that was ‘visible’ was an orange-sand all over – how peculiar, thought I.

Referendum Polling Day

In the late 1970’s ‘Sandra’ was blessed with a vision of Britain lighting up, similar to that of Jean Darnall but without knowing about her until later. The Lord directed ‘Sandra’ to keep praying since 2002 because “the tide has turned” and told her it would look as though He’s not answering prayers, “But I am, in my own time and in My own way”. On 23rd June she was able to observe remarkable events at a polling station and informs me:

“I watched God’s miracles unfold – incredible even though I’d prayed for this for many years. There was 80% turnout…queuing at the door before 7am determined to vote as soon as polls opened. All day they came, old people and 1st-time voters, and many in between. Some did not know how to vote but they were determined anyway. I know God would have influenced them in their choice. Some had great physical disabilities and could hardly walk or some had other impairments but they got themselves there somehow. There wasn’t any time for staff to take lunch. It was truly amazing. In the end, whether they acknowledge him or not, all people will serve their Creator. “Your Kingdom’s coming – Salvation Day – a time of breakthrough – the Lord is on His way. Only our God is strong to save. Only our God will save us.” Thank God that we will never completely know the horrors from which we have been saved had the country voted the other way. Thank God that He will, in time, help Europe too.”

All that’s especially so in view of polling day’s unusually heavy storms and flooding!

Peterborough – 2nd, 3rd & 4th jigsaw pieces

Shake the Nations Legacy Conference in Peterborough (covered briefly here) brought developments upon that Winchester vision. During the elevating, prolonged worship of the first evening I sensed a golden-yellow light radiating towards East Anglia and out over the North Sea. (The 2nd piece.)

Funnily enough it was directional and not a full circle – just like we see on radar screens depicting where the radar beam is sweeping. Again it was another map image.

A couple of worship sessions later I had a distinct impression of a map of the UK main-land and again it was like a bright orange sandy beach but this time it was all over, for the huge gap that I’d seen previously had disappeared! Furthermore, I saw a giant hand moving all around the land gently smoothing and patting it. Any signs of ‘cataclysmic’ tear across the nation had been folded back, repaired and healed and covered by what appeared to be a nation-wide field of colour void of any habitations or forestry. (The 3rd piece.)

Then I realised the entire land looks just like an immense field ripe for harvest: all the way from Lands’ End in Cornwall to John O’Groat’s at the top of Scotland and across from the Welsh peninsulars to the eastern coast abutting the North Sea!  It must surely signify all  Britain will soon be harvested for souls coming into the Kingdom of God – their personal salvation! Hallelujah!

Praise the Lord that His will will be done on earth – in Britain – as it is in heaven!

This new vision was soon to be confirmed. On the morning STN staff shared their vision for further global evangelism worship leader Lydia Marrow from Alabama suddenly burst into prophetic flow about many towns in the UK erupting with heavenly rivers – the 4th piece!  Also, she called for “Redcoats” (Yankee term for 18th Century British army) to come, which must relate somehow to what the Lord was indicating when Nina saw the Coldstream Guards marching down the Mall for Trooping The Colour. [UPDATE: video and transcript now available.]

I’d drafted most of the preceding paragraphs as soon as I could on Wednesday morning. As I was doing so yet more pieces to the jigsaw puzzle appeared via my PC. Whyever not?  Many times as I blog relevant email, news or songs have turned up ‘coincidentally’ . After all, the Lord taught me a deep lesson whilst building it (see And Now A PC Gospel?)

Angels in Peterborough – 5th & 6th jigsaw pieces

Now for an excellent example of the Lord’s timing, or ‘God-incidence’. Soon after I started writing about Winchester an email arrived from a couple with whom I’m only occasionally in touch. We’d met Peter and Rosamund D at the gathering of early 2012 mentioned in the post about the new PM’s mission fulfilling a 2005 prophecy (see Fulfilled Prophecies #9).  [‘Weirdly’ enough the distance to that venue in Torquay was another validation of my encounter with the Lord in 1989 as well as of prophecies for 2012, as recounted here.]

Their email is headed ‘Vision on 3rd August 2016 at Faith Camp Peterborough (!!) during the prophetic worship’ and is the 5th piece. It reads:

‘Immediately the prophetic worship started on Wednesday evening, I had an awesome vision.

‘My husband and I both heard a “creaking” sound!  The Lord said, “I have opened the ancient gates to the nation!”  Then I saw millions upon millions of warrior angels arrive through these ancient gates.  They were all dressed for battle and close together in formation.  Then I saw a great light, as the Lord Himself arrived.’

Immediately I stopped blogging and, in view of the 6th piece – a dream I’d had that very morning (Wednesday), I could confirm their vision and replied as follows:

‘Had an awesomely powerful dream that woke me up wide-awake. It was multi-level symbolism and conscious learning with continual and intense praying and prophesying in tongues for UK. In essence, I think it means the Lord is empowering intercessors…to declare and prophesy Godly changes into our leaders and situations, thereby taking our heavenly rulership so that His will will now be done on earth as it is in heaven; ie. for and in Britain. He even gave me an understanding of how His purpose for Britain inspired Henry VIII’s building a naval fleet, thereby preparing for our great maritime power in evangelising globally and building a Christian empire.
‘…the most powerful part was when I saw swing-doors/gates closing against what was coming from the heavenly realm YET the power from heaven continued to pour through mightily!!’

Peter replied, “We are encountering one divine set-up after another!”

Therefore, intercessors may want to note those principles of prophetic declarations. [For more see Mentoring Day parts 1 & 2 and Apostolic, Prophetic Decrees Over The UK.]

Prophetic Word from Oz – 7th jigsaw piece

Taking a break later that day I mulled over hard-copies of long prophetic words that I only have time for quickly scanning on-screen. One was Word for the Nations, including UK from Amanda Wells, now shown in Thursday’s post.

It confirmed that insight into Henry VIII’s fleet by Amanda’s referring to August trade winds having “enabled the European empire to expand into the Americas and trade routes to become established across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans…Historically trade routes were the avenue were the avenue where religion, trade and technology spread across regions…many became paths for great revivals also…”

The ‘Now Word’ for UK – 8th jigsaw piece

Today (Thursday) I decided to scroll through Veronika West’s site as my Facebook blog-page doesn’t get any automatic feeds from those I’m interested in. So I caught up with her post of 5th August, as above, wherein she describes seeing “A large field of corn – the harvest looked ready”, rather like the UK-wide golden ripe field in my third map vision described above.

All of this relates back to 2009 when I had to tell friends and church leaders about Matt 13 parable of wheat and tares and that I’d heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”

Conclusion

To those personal eight pieces we could add the original that ‘kick started’ them, the vision of a spiritual battle given to Veronika and that to Yinka of regional awakening and harvest.

Could our heavenly Father like doing jigsaw puzzles with us? Has He got a jigsaw box ‘Souls Harvest’ and does He want us to help Him solve it and put it all together?  Events and evidence suggest that’s what He’s got and would like us to do – so we thank and praise our Heavenly Father in revealing His plans to His sons and daughters.

Study finds 10 million Muslims have become followers of Christ since 1960.

Praise the Lord for what He’s doing. (This study shows numbers saved has tripled since I heard about ‘the fall of Islam’ in 1992.)

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

MBBs-graphic-Johnstone

(Washington, D.C.) — An unprecedented spiritual revolution is underway in the Islamic world.

From 1960 to 2010, the number of Muslims who have converted away from Islam and become true followers of Jesus Christ has skyrocketed, from fewer than 200,000 to some 10 million people. Amidst persecution and even genocide, the Church in the Middle East is growing in ways never seen in fourteen centuries of Islam. And there is now scholarly documentation backing up these numbers.

Yesterday, I had the honor of addressing the pastors at the “Watchmen on the Wall” conference organized by the Family Research Council. Tony Perkins, president of FRC, asked me to brief the gathering on the latest on the persecuted Church in the Middle East and it was my joy to do so — especially to share this exciting news.

Here are notes I used for my presentation. You’ll find details regarding the soaring number of Muslim conversions under point…

Monday newsmix: UK re-awakening and more Muslims looking to Jesus

Hand with News icon - WatcharakunAfter a short break on the coast followed by a weekend course on living in Holy Spirit’s anointing, I trawled through my in-tray and was very pleased with the following good news. Both items are related to visionary and prophetical words, the first comes from our county town, and the second from the wider Middle-East.

Can These Bones Live?

Dr Clifford Hill reacts as follows to what happened during the Pentecost celebrations:

“If anyone thought that Christianity was dying in the traditional churches of Britain, what happened in Winchester Cathedral last week would have shattered their illusions!”

He reports the ancient, hallowed building and grounds were packed out at that evening’s celebration. This was the culmination of nine days of prayer events for the evangelisation of Britain, as invited by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The Pentecost weekend itself culminated in six ‘Beacon events’ with video links to Canterbury Cathedral where the Archbishop, Justin Welby, gave a message based upon the Lord’s prayer, which he said was “reassuring enough to be on the lips of the dying and yet dangerous enough to be banned in cinemas!”

Read Clifford’s full report here, which closes with his asking,

“Was this a sign that something special is beginning to happen in the old denominational churches? Will the spiritual life of the nation be transformed by a new generation embracing the gospel in their own culture as the Holy Spirit breathes new life into the unchanging message of salvation and “Jesus is Lord!” is once again heard on the lips of children and young people?”

In my humble opinion, “Yes it is a sign” and my initial thought was of the prophetic promise heard at Ffald-y-Brenin retreat centre, as blogged two years ago in Resurrection Coming to the Anglican Church.:

‘The usual morning liturgical prayer time got overshadowed by the Lord, who reminded them of the raising of Lazarus. They were told He’s going to call the Anglican Church out of its grave and bring it back to life!’

Of all the words published in this blog this may be exceptional because it was the first to be severely criticised, as related in this post about our later visit to Ffald-y-Brenin.  Also, this latest event reflects what others have observed of an increasing number returning to the Anglican fold and other churches – yet without denominational divisions as in bygone eras. And, of course, readers of this blog are aware of many prophetic words about a new era in the Church and move of God in the UK; eg, brought by Heidi Baker (with updates).

Intense Persecution Brings Harvest of Muslims

The exciting news continues of many Muslims seriously doubting their faith and looking and turning to Jesus in reaction to it being returned to its original barbaric practices. As blogged about Iran and a significant warning in Mecca (here and here respectively), as well as other posts, this is personally encouraging in view of a vision I had in 1992 on the fall of Islam (see this email).

Another morning email Is There Any Good News From the Mid-East? alerted me to Joel Rosenberg’s latest post, in which his friend Tom Doyle answers,

“Yes, despite intense prosecution we’re also seeing a great harvest of Muslims turning to Christ.”

After providing several wonderful examples, especially of those martyred on a beach in Libya to the shock of the world, Tom asks why is it that Muslims are now coming to faith in Christ in significant numbers? His answer:

One of the reasons is that Islamic terrorists are killing violently for their faith, while followers of Jesus are dying peacefully for their faith. Muslims are watching the violence and it has soured them towards their religion. It has also opened them up to the possibility that there may be something to this Jesus after all. They see hate in Radical Islam and love among the Jesus followers, even as they are taken to be executed. What a contrast.

“Yes, Christians are being persecuted openly in the Middle East. But they are standing strong, and this has served to spread the gospel even more rapidly. In a world of bad news, that is very good news.”

Indeed it is. And as noted in Good News: Christian Revival in N Africa, the Cartheginian early Church author Tertullian observed the same and formulated the famous dictum:

“The blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church.”

Salvation comes to Hindu and Muslim

As well as circulating email news to church leaders of ‘An Awakening Season’, as in the previous post, Michael Marcel also separately reported how salvation came to two people of other faiths.:

Testimony (email 29th April)
A Hindu woman was walking in Leicester last week. She had struggled with depression for a long time and she saw in a vision a man dressed in white walk up to her and say, “Go to the house on your street with number 2 on it and a woman there will tell you how to restore your heavy heart”.
She went straight home, walked down her street to house number 2 and a Christian lady who has been saved out of the Hindu faith answered the door bell. She told this woman the vision of the man in white, and the lady promptly shared the gospel and prayed for her. She was saved and healed and came to church the following day! She is now sharing her new-found faith with her family; all of them have seen that she is no longer depressed and want to know what happened.
 
God is definitely on the move in this nation!
Another Testimony (email 1st May)
A Muslim man in Leicester had a dream; in the dream he saw a man dressed in white standing next to a cross, the man in white told him to go to the clock tower tomorrow at 12pm and a man who (will be) standing there will tell you what you must do.

The next day he went to town and found a street preacher at the clock tower, he told the preacher his dream and was then saved as a result. The same night this Muslim man had a dream that his sister in the Middle-East had a similar dream, except she was told to call her brother in the evening, On phoning her brother told her what had happened and shared the gospel and she was saved!

Thank and praise you Lord for what you are doing in bringing not-yet-believers into the Kingdom.

Reports of ‘Awakenings’ in USA – UK next please Lord (#1,000)

Appropriately for this blog’s 1,000th post there’s news of developments in the New Era for the Church:

At Sunday’s morning’s service in CHP in Alabama pastor John Kilpatrick said he’s being contacted about a revival involving many young people in eastern Kentucky, as well as one happening in West Virginia (see video at 1:19:40). He reminded the congregation of what he heard when visiting the Appalachian area of the early 19th Century Cane Ridge Revival.

Those remarks are particularly interesting in view of news received the previous day from Michael Marcel. He updates subscribers to his website with a couple of email, one of which was also circulated to nearly two hundred leaders and which reads as follows:

Dear Pastor, Prophet or Leader
THIS IS AN AWAKENING SEASON
Most of you know that Revival/Awakening has been on my heart for several years now and I am sure you have heard many prophecies over the last two years that Revival is coming – well, that season is upon us!
An awakening has been apparent in many parts of the world for a year or more – the underground church and government churches in China, Brazil, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Mozambique, Uganda to name a few. I believe it is clear that the Billion soul revival, as prophesied by Bob Jones, is with us. It has been noticeable though that there has been little happening in the west – America and Europe.
This has now changed. This week I came back from the Fire & Glory outpouring in San Diego. It has been going for 89 nights (6 nights a week) and each meeting can be viewed here:
This is is for the equipping of the harvesters and was prophesied by James Goll in January.
A sister outpouring has been going on for 40 days (4 nights a week) in Seattle and can be seen here:
Since March there has been a full-scale awakening in West Virginia with hundreds of students coming to the Lord, as reported by Christian Today in this post.
Today,  I have discovered that something else is beginning in Edmonton, Canada, through Todd Bentley. He has just announced he is extending his conference by a week.
So, now it is our turn and the turn of Europe. I personally have not heard of anything breaking out here in the UK (apart from Coleraine last year), but perhaps you know different; if so please let me know. It is not a guarantee that the awakening will hit us; it is up to us – we have to take a risk and step into what God is doing. There is a significant personal cost in putting on meetings every night or several times a week, but I believe that this will happen here soon. This is a time when we need to work out where God wants us in the Revival; there is no more time, it is at our door, so I urge you to switch into revival mode.
I do not know about you, but I am NOT going to let this awakening pass us by. If there were the demand I would open my house up to worship and prayer every night.
I know each one of you are doing wonderful things, but I am writing to you to urge you, if you are not already doing it, to prepare for revival!
 
When you see something breaking out please let me know as I want to record it on my website UK Awakening, which I have set up for this purpose.
 
Love
Michael

Pray_For_RevivalMichael Marcel is the author of Prepare For Revival, the publicity for which reads:

‘It is time for Revival. Many are expecting one to break out across our nation, but do you really know what a revival is? In this important and timely book, Michael Marcel answers this question and records many exciting accounts of revivals that we have experienced in the United Kingdom since the Reformation. He looks at the reason why the last revival/awakening in the United Kingdom was in 1949, and the last in England was 1921.  “Prepare for Revival” recommends what strategies we must do to make revival a reality and what we need to do to prepare ourselves for the revival that is coming.’

World-changing socio-economic and spiritual trends in 2016

A fortnight ago today (21 January) Rick Joyner, founder of Morning Star Ministries, wrote,

“The premise of my last Prophetic Bulletin on the five trends that would change the natural world in 2016 began unfolding faster and with more impact than I expected. I wrote that it would happen in the first quarter of this year, but I honestly did not expect it to begin on the first day as it did. My prayer now is that what I’ve been shown that will unfold in the Spirit will likewise come faster and with greater impact. What is coming in the Spirit is the antidote to the troubles of the world. It is far more exciting than anything the world has seen…” (emphasis added)

In referring to ‘natural world’ Rick means geopolitical and socio-economic realms. I’ll briefly outline that Bulletin’s content before considering its follow-up, which leads into something of fundamental historical importance that’s been brewing. Rick doesn’t refer to this special seismic shift. Nevertheless, it’s implicit in the conclusion of his subsequent Bulletin.

Published on 14 December his Prophetic Bulletin #96, Five Trends that Will Change the World in 2016, opens as follows:

“A geopolitical shift has taken place at the end of 2015 that could change the world more than we have seen since the collapse of the Iron Curtain. Core beliefs and values are being challenged across the globe. With such a major change of direction happening, where are we headed? The following are the five major events that will likely define our immediate future and impact world affairs for the foreseeable future….”

Rick presents these five in chronological order of occurrence, which isn’t necessarily the sequence of importance or impact, namely: China’s stock market crashes – falling energy prices – Russian military intervention in Middle-East – terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino – the candidacy of Donald Trump.

Having closely watched political events in the States with increasing concern throughout Obama’s terms, and thus being one of 300 founding leaders of The Oak Initiative, Rick’s brief analysis is well-worth noting.

Therefore, in looking at each of those five events of major impact upon the world and their potential consequences Rick starts, “First we will briefly discuss the most basic change factor in world affairs—initiative. In military operations and world affairs, having the initiative is necessary for success…”.  He goes on to examine factors in each case and draw ‘the bottom line’. I note his gentle indictment of Obama regarding terrorism:

“…most people are smart enough to understand the politicians try to come up with politically correct and expedient solutions instead of a real strategy. Even so, the Paris and San Bernardino attacks did a lot to wake up the people. This awakening is helping to throw off the delusions of unrealistic idealism and political correctness. This is crucial for sustainable war that will defeat ISIS and other groups whose primary strategy is terrorism. Although French and British leadership are waking up some, it is an awakening among the people that is creating a sharp turn to the right in Europe. Putin has chastised Europe for its attempt at multiculturalism…”

Read Rick’s brief evaluation in full here and note, as does he, that other factors are also affecting current events and trends; but the far more positive ones are spiritual trends. To continue from my above opening quotation.:

“We all “see in part,” but these are the five most important trends I saw unfolding that we will begin to see emerging this year:

  • A new reformation of the church will begin to take definition.
  • Councils of leaders will begin to form with true apostolic authority. 
  • A kingdom economy will begin to form.
  • A new generation of prophets and teachers will begin to emerge with unprecedented authority and influence 
  • So many Christians will rise up in Europe and North America with zeal and focus that it will be recognized as another Great Awakening, while the moves of God in the rest of the world will gain new traction.”

Continue reading Bulletin #97 here > Five Spiritual Trends That Will Change the World in 2016.

In particular I like this promise:

“…The Lord really has saved His best wine for last. The quality of what He will serve His people will eclipse anything ever experienced before.

“Knowledge has greatly increased in the natural. What is about to be released in the Spirit will mirror this. For those who love knowledge, truth, wisdom, and understanding, there has never been a better time to be alive. This increasing love for the Scriptures will be contagious, helping to feed and strengthen every move of God now unfolding.”

…as well as Rick’s closing remark:

“We are entering the first stages of the great harvest that is the end of this age. This will be the greatest in-gathering there has ever been. It will change the spiritual and moral fabric of nations, profoundly changing the church throughout the earth. The church is then going to help change the earth and prepare the way for the coming King.”  

His reference to spiritual and moral fabric reminds me of the open vision that appeared in front of me of Britain and hearing/seeing the Lord’s plan, “The fabric of society is so rotten – (like old, wet sacking) – it will tear apart”.

I then watched as the centre of England was ripped apart and forced open by a huge rock. That is, the rock that is Christ Jesus will arise throughout the land, becoming the bedrock of our nation once again – Praise the Lord. (See Comments Upon the Collapse of Society)

AND, in connection with Rick’s remark another truly historic and exceptional trend has started, which I reported upon last year. The next post will update you…

If you have time and inclination you may like some ‘prep’, especially the last item:

Revd John Kilpatrick: prophecy of internet harvest of souls

Watcharakuns globeThis is the 15th of ’20 Prophetic Words and Words of Knowledge for 2016 and Beyond’, as given to pastor John Kilpatrick by the Lord and delivered 8th January, as in the previous post.

John pauses during his lengthy delivery to preface this particular prophecy,

“Early in the morning on January 1st 2016, just about a week ago – (looking up from the notes to stress) I could never have thought about this – I’d could never have dreamed this up – I know this has to be from the Lord – listen to it..”

Here’s what the Lord gave him:

“Jesus said to Simon Peter and his brothers, “I will make you fishers of men”. Jesus later gave Peter a word to go fishing and informed him that the first fish caught would contain a coin in its mouth that would be used to pay their tribute (taxes). It was supernatural provision that resulted from privileged information.

“Last Friday morning, as I was sound asleep, I heard Holy Spirit speaking directly to me. He said,

“There are usually two ways that fish are caught—with a net and on a line.”

“I was so startled that I awoke immediately and looked at my clock. It was 5:55. Now awake, I heard the Lord continue. He said that there is coming a great international harvest of souls through “the net” (Internet) and “online”. He said that the Internet will light up as Holy Spirit accelerates His mighty wonders. He also said that “the net” and “lines” will bring tremendous and miraculous provision to God’s people because time is of the essence, and the waters are abundant for harvest. A new and very powerful wind of anointing will blow through the Internet. In real time, signs and wonders will be witnessed without edit. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament will show forth His handiwork!”

Footnote: The number five is the number of grace. The Holy Spirit is revealing to us that we are in a triple grace season. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes. I want everyone in this house, and especially those on “the net” and “online,” to give Him glory. Glorious days are indeed just ahead. Come on! Let’s give Him great and high praise! 2016 – “The Year of the Wind!”

NB: see Update 1 for explanation of “without edit” and Update 2 about an existing internet program of evangelism and discipleship.

RB’s notes:

  • Also, 5s could be likened to giving a ‘high five’ where two hands join together to appear as one lot of 5. That is, one conjoined 5 is made by two separate 5s belonging to different people.  So at that time of 5:55 am maybe the Lord’s doing His own ‘holy high five’ with John? Just a thought…
  • Is the transmission, or the flow, of Holy Spirit’s power possible over the internet? We can personally attest this happens: we’ve seen or heard things that carry a strong, holy anointing on various occasions and been powerfully affected. Eg. on 3rd January Nina had to take an urgent phone call and left the lounge where CHP’s service was being live streamed to our TV. Upon returning she didn’t know what the assistant pastor John Michael K was saying as he addressed the online audience direct – BUT Nina got blasted.  JM was blessing us all to receive Holy Spirit’s gifts!! So the power either came through the internet via satellite or else spiritually direct from heaven (See also Holy lightning beyond ‘The Pond’ strikes in the UK.)

Confirmation of prophetic word: holy winds of change

After Howling Fresh Wind by Patsy Southway was auto-published on this blog today, I  tinkered around with news relating to climate change. Unbeknown to me Angela Jelf was beavering away with a comment on that post and which warrants publication as some may have missed it. Angela writes as follows, and I’ve taken the liberty to show the Lord’s word as a quotation:

Hi Richard,
After reading this, I just felt prompted to share a word that God gave to me on June 15th last year (strangely enough, when I went to find my old journal which I’d written this word down in, lo and behold, it was folded open on exactly the right page!)

“For some time the church in the UK has been battling against a head wind. We’ve had the wind against us. Despite our best efforts, particularly in the area of evangelism, progress has been slow. It’s as though we’ve had the wind and rain in our face, and been buffeted by the elements. There’s been a sense of three steps forward and two steps back. But there is a fresh wind blowing! A wind of change is on the way! It’s the wind of the Holy Spirit and its coming to our aid! It’s a tail wind which will propel us forward! Acceleration is suddenly coming. The Lord has heard our cry, He has seen our growing hunger for breakthrough. Suddenly those things that were difficult will suddenly be done with ease, because it’s not about your effort. Hope is carried on this wind. When you feel this wind you must hoist up your sails! Hoist up your sails and get ready for acceleration! Some of you have longed for things, for salvation for family members, for breakthrough in healings and miracles – let fresh hope arise today for it will surely come about.

“This wind comes upon my church to propel you out! You will go out into the community, to the highways and byways. You will no longer stay hidden behind four walls. This wind will send you OUT and propel you to new horizons.

“This wind also blows through the harvest – it is blowing on the lost and broken, the sinner with the hardest heart – this wind is stirring the harvest. It’s blowing now! I see dandelion clocks, the little seeds caught on the wind. The seed of the gospel will be caught on this wind and will travel far and wide! It will propel the lost and the prodigal into my house. They will not be able to resist this wind as it carries such power. For it’s the wind of my Spirit!”

Praise God – I truly believe the time is now!”

In response to my reply Angela added, “Thanks Richard – I haven’t blogged about it. Just shared it at our church…The wonderful thing is, we are beginning to see a shift. Prodigals are beginning to return, and last week five people responded to the gospel on a course at our church!”

Praise the Lord – more, much more Lord!

Footnote:

The Lord seems to be turning our attention back to this prophetic promise – even halting us in our tracks, turning us around so we don’t miss what He wants us to realise!!  That is, He gave a similar word not only to Patsy last May but also to others during the first half of this year about waves and winds, as well as a few years ago in  what I’d term a ‘tame tornado’.

See Library and Weighing waves, tsunami & tornado and a turning the tide, to which Tony Puccio reminded me of dreams about a Cleansing wind and Winds of change in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Also, I’m nudged to add and to check the date – it is worth re-reading the important Prophetic word on Hurricane Sandy brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone THREE YEARS AGO TODAY!

Therefore, I need to urge you and me to ‘NB’ – nota bene; pay especial attention!

PS: note Maray’s thoughts below…
