Holy Fire caught during church video meeting

Three weeks after our first video meeting with Catch The Fire Farnborough, as told in this confirmation of the establishing of ‘new wineskin’ church, pastor Bird asked one of the attendees to read a scripture he’d submitted as being relevant to this new church:

The Coming Glory of God’s House (NKJV – BibleGateway)

In the seventh month, on the twenty-first of the month, the word of the Lord came [a]by Haggai the prophet, saying: 2 ‘Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying: 3 “Who is left among you who saw this [b]temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing? Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,” says the Lord; “and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,” says the Lord, “and work; for I am with you,” says the Lord of hosts. 5 “According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!”

6 ‘For thus says the Lord of hosts: “Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the [c]Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this [d]temple with glory,” says the Lord of hosts. 8 “The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,” says the Lord of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter [e]temple shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, says the Lord of hosts.’

I’m amazed that once again a scripture brought to our attention had been highlighted in my old Bible, as in the attached photo. This was probably done in connection with having heard “Hebrews 12” over 29 yrs ago and when I highlighted v 26 about ‘The Shaking’, which is why I’ve oft referred to it when blogging (see tag).

Let the True Prophets of God arise over nations – Veronika West

How ‘God-incidental’ that in responding to reader Mary’s comment I felt prompted to stick Lana Vawser’s prophecy of February 2016 on coals of fire on prophets’ heads to this blog’s homepage. A hour ago Veronika posted this on Ignite Ireland Ministries.

Moreover, it fits a scripture connected to judgement beginning at the house of God that I’d homed in on days ago: from 1 Peter 4:17 > Malachi 3:11, NKJV: “I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes” (a demon I’d seen many decades ago!):

“LET THE TRUE PROPHETS ARISE OVER THE NATIONS WITH THE SOUND OF THE ROAR OF REDEMPTION AND RESURRECTION POWER IN THEIR MOUTHS AND LET THE VOICE OF THE LYING DEVOURER BE SILENCED”….! These are the words I heard this morning as I went before the Lord….!

In prayer this morning I felt such a tangible weight of the Spirit fear, grief, despair and deep discouragement covering the Nations, I saw in the Spirit many Nations that were covered by a thick heavy cloak of darkness and I saw the words, “DEMONIC OPPRESSION” ,….and then I heard these words, “HOPE DEFERRED HAS MADE THE HEARTS OF MANY SICK”…!

Then I saw many people across the Nations sitting indoors with a yoke of heaviness around their necks and the voices of familiar spirits were whispering in their ears, lies and more lies were being spoken over them and then I heard the Spirit say, “Look many are standing on the threshold of their greatest breakthrough…many are on the very cusp of the dreams and visions they have carried for decades being made fully manifest… but! listen!”….

Leisa Ebere: the Fire Boundary Prophecy

Leisa emails last Saturday:

‘The setting apart and protection of God’s people is becoming more and more evident each day, as the Lord readies the earth for a great harvest in the next years ahead.  Please find this powerful vision and prophecy the Lord has given me today:

THE FIRE BOUNDARY PROPHECY

given to Leisa Ebere on 7th March 2020

‘I saw a writing instrument marking with fire, and I saw it draw a boundary line around God’s people, and those inhabiting His Presence upon Mount Zion.  And I saw there was a special place of fierce heat that they stood, as the smoke drove away all enemy attacks. Then the Lord reminded me of Zechariah 2, and I heard the Lord say

“I am sending angels to all those who inhabit villages without walls, across the nations of the earth, and I will put a wall of fire all around them,” says the Lord, and I will be as Glory in their midst.  For you who have had to live with the daughter of Babylon, and endure hardships because of her, shall sing and rejoice, for I shall dwell in your midst,” says the Lord, “and many nations shall join themselves with Me in this hour. I will reside in your midst and they will know that the Lord of Hosts secures with His power all those that choose holiness and the Spirit Led life.  Be still, all flesh before Me, for I Am stirred from My holy habitation, and I Am stretching forth My arm of transition in this hour, and the four winds of heaven that have spread you this way and that, throughout the earth, shall now begin to release a roll-call, as the glorious saints stand up and are empowered by My Spirit to bring in a harvest.”

Blessings, Leisa Ebere

Group prophetic word: Rahab and a new name for the UK

I’m grateful to Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival for permission to repost this group word contributed by Veronika West, Lisa Tierney, Rick Davis, Geoffrey Pick, Yvonne Coombs on 10th March:

RAHAB and a NEW NAME for the UK

Yvonne painted a picture with fiery clouds and mountains and heard ‘A stitch in time saves 9’. This painting inspired Lisa to direct Yvonne to her word on the ‘SERAPHIM’ (RB: note dated 22.02.2020).

“Expect unusual signs from Me. A trumpet will sound, and I will cause a Great Cloud to descend on many areas of the British Isles. Red skies will signify the release of my Fiery Ones.” 

Mountains represent the intimacy of going higher to listen and take sustenance.

The mountains and the word ‘A stitch in time saves 9’ were relevant as this scripture came to Veronika.:
Psalm 121 – Look up to the mountains and hills, longing for God’s help.
But then I realize that our true help and protection come only from the Lord,
our Creator who made the heavens and the earth.

This word has a needle with the golden thread and will stitch up the separated flag of the UK. The painting with the sword in the crown has a hole like a needle head at the end with the key and this is where the thread shall pass through, due to the prayers lifted by the sword of the spirit and the authority within the crown.

Yvonne had a vision of a needle with a red thread passing through that represents the healing blood of the lamb.

The festival of Purim has begun with the Jewish people, a supermoon has risen that the Jewish scholars believe is the return of the Davidic era and this feast is a reminder to them that Queen Esther called a fast and prayer over her people. It is no coincidence that these words and pictures are revealing a divine coming together, a moment of heaven-sent help and revelation of what we, as the remnant, are to do for this Nation of the UK and the world: repentance and a calling out to the Lord for His help.

It also (as in Veronika’s word) prophetically speaks of God’s authority and power. We see this in Exodus chapter (10) God displaying signs of his great power and authority on behalf of the Israelites before The Spirit of Pharaoh…”Let my people go!”

It is no coincidence that this number 10 that represents order of completion and fullness of a season is NOW!

Numbers 10:10
10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the Lord your God.

”AN APPOINTED TIME OF REJOICING FOR THIS NATION…FOR THE CLOUD HAS LIFTED. IT’S TIME TO ENTER INTO THE LAND I HAVE PROMISED, JUDAH SHALL GO FIRST”…,WE ARE IN A KAIROS MOMENT, A WINDOW OF DIVINE GRACE, PROTECTION , ANGELIC SUPPORT AND REVELATION OF HEAVEN TO EARTH! Yet, we have become a Rahab nation that did not seek God when making decisions over the land and people of the UK, yet as Rahab was a prostitute and idol worshipper she helped Joshua and Caleb when they were sent into Jericho to spy on what they were facing. She had a fear of their God as she remembered the story of the Exodus from Egypt. She went from prostitution and worshiping false gods, to helping and becoming a part of the blood line of Jesus.

She represents the grafting-in of a new generation of believers, who will rise up to take the promised land.

The name Rahab has two meanings. One is of insolence, pride, ‘the proud one’ and that reflects the name being applied to worldly Egypt!

The name also means a broad, large and vast space of land and resonates with the promised land that has been promised and given to us.

This is a time of separation between those who will be world centred, as in the first meaning and those who will honour God first, who will be entering and walking in the promised land.

Rahab in Hebrew has three letters Bet, Chet and Resh. These mean ‘house’, ‘fence’ and ‘crown’. God was giving Israel the land and God’s house was given to God’s people by His authority and its broad boundaries. Like Israel, God has given the land over to the remnant in the UK to take the ground and restore.

The red cord (Yikvah) that Rahab lowered from the window of her abode was to let the Israelites know not to harm her and her family, as they locked themselves in during the plundering of Jericho. God protected her just as he protects us in these times of shaking. The walls were now down and this is a season of entering in of the promised land.

We the church have been as Rahab, we have forgotten the fear of God and have done things our way and prostituted ourselves to other unions; yet, in grace, the Lord is revealing that if we turn and pray, He shall call this nation by a new name. God is aligning Israel and the UK.

PSALMS 121

God Protects Us
A song of the stairway
look up to the mountains and hills, longing for God’s help.
But then I realize that our true help and protection
come only from the Lord,
our Creator who made the heavens and the earth.
3 He will guard and guide me, never letting me stumble or fall.
God is my keeper; he will never forget nor ignore me.
4 He will never slumber nor sleep;
he is the Guardian-God for his people, Israel.
5 Jehovah himself will watch over you;
he’s always at your side to shelter you safely in his presence.
6 He’s protecting you from all danger both day and night.
7 He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity
as he continually watches over you.
8 You will be guarded by God himself.
You will be safe when you leave your home
and safely you will return.

He will protect you now,
and he’ll protect you forevermore!

Visions of England ablaze – and a holy whirlwind (GPS #34.2)

aurora-uk_2192580k_Image credit Telegraph

May I offer the following visions for your weighing with the Lord. Readers may recall previous posts on dreams and visions (eg. on Big Ben) received by Tony Puccio, a resident of Tucson, Arizona, on what he believes the Lord is about to do in England. Here’s the two latest:

1. ENGLAND ABLAZE, ANOTHER VISION (19th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I saw the following vision.

‘Imagine, if you will, the Olympic runner who runs with the torch and at the end of his/her run lights the flame for the beginning of the games.

‘With that said I saw England and it was dark. Then I saw what seemed to be Olympic runners seemingly descending from the sky each holding a torch. Again remember the ultimate purpose of the runner was to light the fire signaling the beginning of the Olympic games. However, in the Olympics only one lights a fire. In the vision, as I stated above, was dark but there were cauldrons, many of them. Each individual carrying a torch would use that torch to light the cauldron and that part of England would be lit. This was repeated by the other runners until all of England was ablaze.’

NB: This timing is interesting because it was 7 years ago when the Olympic Torch was carried throughout Great Britain & Northern Ireland for 70 days ahead of the Olympic Games of 2012.  In order to cleanse its pagan influence, it was preceded by an open-top bus on which praise and worship was sung, in which we participated as told here. Many readers may recall the two visions of fires Jean Darnall experienced in 1967 of groups of believers across Britain being struck by lightning bolts. Tony confirms the vision specifically relates to England alone in the UK. This is especially encouraging in view of what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2013 of its need to get in sync with the Lord’s purposes.

2. ENGLAND’S CHURCHES (20th June)

‘As I was praying this morning I once again was shown England. This time however, I saw what we would call in the States a tornado. This was a whirlwind that had both direction and purpose. I watched as the whirlwind would pass by a church and the church literally would be sucked into the whirlwind leaving the foundation exposed. This was repeated many times. This to me is reminiscent of Ezekiel prophesying in chapter 13 about the Lord tearing down the wall and exposing its foundation.’

Again, ‘coincidental’ timing is interesting in view of a posting dated 18th June in a Facebook Group and which I hope to be able to republish. 

GPS #30.2: “Stand up!” emerging army of mighty prayer warriors

Rosemary Piercy writes to me about a command she heard and its related vision:

‘I felt that the Lord woke me up early to pray for the UK (Tuesday 12th March); as I started I heard the command “Stand up”! The scriptures came to me – “When you have done all, stand” and “Stand still and you will see the deliverance the Lord will do”.

‘As I watched, I saw thousands of people standing up all over Britain, in a great wave; many people were concentrated in the north-east but also in Manchester and London; they went well up into Scotland and Wales, then down in the south west. I did not see Ireland in the picture. This does not seem to fit in with your picture/words about marching, but it was very clear indeed. I think of the song “Arise, a mighty army, we arise” – maybe this is a preliminary to marching. Have you had any other words along these lines?’

I replied yesterday, and followed up today with a couple of questions,

‘Terrific! This would fit in between what Nina saw of a group of lounging WWII fighter pilots awaiting “Scramble!” and N’s instant reaction to her stressing the importance of the image and date received, which he gave as though an imperative “March forth!” rather than factual figure, fourth of March.  As you say, we need to stand up before we can do either of ‘scramble’ or ‘march’.

‘Also, there’s the difference of them being able to fly, like heavenly warriors of angels, and a ground-based army in that day’s word that I’d read earlier…’

‘Presumably the command and vision of people arising to stand refers to intercessors only? Or, all praying believers?? Or even – those who rise up in reaction to last night’s Parliamentary contempt for the people’s choice for Brexit???’

And so Rosemary responded,

‘Good questions! I feel strongly that it is for ALL praying believers – to stand up and be counted, and that it is not simply a reaction to our leaders’ disregard of the democratic process. I have been re-reading Ephesians 6, and was reminded of the command to stand (up) 3 times in the passage. We need to put our heads above the parapet regardless of the fact that the enemy will see us as well as God! Standing is an action that we need to take as we receive our “inheritance that will never perish, spoil, or fade”.’

As far as I’m aware Rosemary doesn’t use Facebook so may have been unaware of this which Veronika West had posted on Monday 11th; a precursor to what Rosemary heard and saw the next morning:

“AWAKENED TO LOVE: I SEE AN ARMY OF BURNING ONES SET ABLAZE WITH THE FIRES OF REVIVAL AND REFORMATION”…!

Early hours of this morning the Spirit of God woke me up from a very deep sleep and He spoke to me saying, “DAUGHTER LOOK AND SEE”, and as I heard those words suddenly a powerful vision opened up before me, where I saw what looked like a desert, a wilderness place, I could see heat waves rising up from the hot sands and then I heard these words, “LOOK AND SEE! WHO ARE THESE BURNING ONES COMING UP FROM THE WILDERNESS LEANING HEAVILY ON THE BELOVED!”, now as I listened and watched in the vision, suddenly I saw on the horizon what looked like a blazing forest fire which was sweeping across the hot sands with great momentum and acceleration, now as the raging fires drew closer and closer to me in the vision, suddenly I saw a large multitude of men, women and children who were SET ABLAZE WITH FIRE and like an army of burning bushes they moved in perfect unison across the land and then I heard these words, “THESE ARE THE BURNING ONES, NO LONGER WILL THEY BE CONTAINED, FOR THESE ARE APPOINTED DAYS OF GREAT AWAKENING, YES! AN AWAKENING TO LOVE, WATCH! FOR MY BURNING ONES ARE NOW ARISING AND ADVANCING ACROSS THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH CARRYING THE FLAME OF REVIVAL AND REFORMATION”!

As I came out of the Vision I began to pray fervently for the Nations and I heard the Spirit say, “DAUGHTER WATCH AND PRAY, FOR THIS IS THE SEASON OF THE SERAPHIM AND THE CHERUBIM, FOR MY BURNING ONES ARE NOW ARISING AND MY GLORY CARRIERS ARE NOW ADVANCING ACROSS THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”…’

Then came confirmation for Rosemary in this of Wednesday 13th from Veronika:

WATCH…ITS BEGINNING TO TAKE PLACE IN THE EARTH, THE TIME IS NOW..!

I hear the Spirit of God say, “WATCH FOR THE TIME IS NOW, MY ECCLESIA WILL COME TOGETHER IN GREATER UNITY, POWER AND AUTHORITY, WATCH AS MY ECCLESIA ARISES AND ADVANCES IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WATCH FOR NOW A DIVINE CONVERGENCE IS TAKING PLACE BOTH IN THE HEAVENS AND ON THE EARTH, FOR THAT WHICH CAUSED DIVISION AND STRIFF SHALL NO LONGER STAND, WATCH! FOR I SAY TO YOU, THIS IS THAT WHICH HAS BEEN PROPHESIED BY MY FAITHFUL PROPHETS, RESTORATION AND DIVINE REFORMATION HAS NOW BEEN BIRTHED IN THE EARTH”, says God

“FIRESTORM, FOUR WHIRLWINDS AND THE FOUR FACES OF GOD…!

I saw a firestorm, four whirlwinds and the four faces of God!

In the early hours, I had a powerful prophetic encounter that I would like to share with you. I ask that you read carefully and prayerfully.

There is a sudden supernatural shift happening in the realms of the Spirit in this hour. Get ready, for there is an emerging Army of Mighty Warriors coming forth from a Firestorm of Glory. Watch, for the manifestation of greater signs, wonders and miracles!

In this encounter, I was taken onto a battlefield. The sky was filled with the colours of deep red and orange, and I heard the words, “The dawning of a New Day.”

The atmosphere was filled with great expectation and anticipation. I could see the mighty warriors of God standing at attention on the battlefield, each one strategically positioned in their respective ranks. I could see these mighty warriors were waiting!
I knew by divine revelation, that these warriors were “Waiting for heaven to touch earth.”
Then suddenly, a strong and mighty wind began to blow upon the battlefield. I watched as four mighty whirlwinds began to form in the distance. Suddenly I could see the Four Faces of God within the four whirlwinds.

I saw the face of the Eagle within the whirlwind, that came from the north. Then I saw the face of the Ox that came in the whirlwind from the west. Then the face of Man that came in the whirlwind from the south. Lastly I could see the face of the Lion that came in the whirlwind from the east.
Now the whirlwinds moved in unison, causing an immense dust storm to rise up from the ground, which filled the atmosphere with an even greater expectation and anticipation among the warriors of God.
Suddenly a bright flash of lightning lite up the horizon and I could see what looked like the rising sun. It was a large ball of fire which moved swiftly across the skies and towards the battlefield of warriors.

I watched closely as the mighty four whirlwinds moved upon the ball of fire, now I could see what looked like the Four Faces of God within the ball of blazing fire. The four whirlwinds seemed to push and propel the fiery ball forward.

I watched as the ball of fire drew nearer and nearer the battlefield. Suddenly, I could feel an intense heat from the ball of fire as it moved upon the battlefield of warriors. I could hear the shouts of great rejoicing.
Suddenly my eyes were illuminated by God’s Word and Truth and I instantly received a new measure and a greater level of ‘seeing’ and ‘understanding.’ Then, like a sharpened arrow, I felt the Fire and Power of God deeply penetrate the deepest parts of my heart.
There was an instant supernatural ignition and exchange that took place deep within me.
My focus became clearer, and now I watched as the fire ball moved upon the mighty warriors of God.

I could clearly see the Four Faces within the Four Whirlwinds within the Fire. I could see the Fire of God in the Whirlwind of the Ox, touching the mighty warrior Evangelists, igniting and empowering them with a greater power, strength and Authority for the end-time harvest.

Then I watched the fire of God within the whirlwind of the Eagle, now touching the mighty warrior Prophets, each one receiving greater insight, deeper revelation, accurate and precise vision. I watched as the fire of His glory touched their lips, and like hot coals they glowed brighter and brighter.

Then I watched as the fire of God within the whirlwind of Man touched the mighty warrior Shepherds. The fire deeply penetrated their hearts giving them a new level of humility, meekness, power and compassion.

Then I saw the fire of God in the whirlwind of the Lion touching the mighty warrior Apostles each one received a new level and a greater measure of divine wisdom, authority, might, humility and revelation.

Then I watched as these fiery, burning and Anointed ones moved together in perfect unity. There were none greater than the other. Shoulder to shoulder, and shield to shield they advanced and moved forward as one mighty army. They moved, marched and advanced forward with one purpose, one vision and one mission.

Their hearts were set ablaze with the Fires of His Glory and Power. I hear, “These are the mighty warriors that are now emerging in greater power and greater authority upon the earth”!

Eve-of-Prayer for UK prophetic word and dream – #1

I’m aware of two pertinent prophetic items received Friday evening and overnight early Saturday morning relating to current events in our Nation.

First, the following private word of prophecy published on UK Prophetic Words came on the evening before Saturday’s Day of Prayer for Britain in Wembley stadium. Note that there’s no official connection between the event or its organisers and the following word – other than the prophetic timing. I’m grateful to Geoff Pick for permission to republish.:

PROPHECY FOR THE UK – one day before the National Day of Prayer

I am stirring up the fire of heaven in you
The rain of my spirit drenches my people
I stir you to boldness
I call you to break out of the timidity of caution
I tell you my warriors do not fear what others fear
Do not let the enemy bind you in false humility
Know that the greatness of the King of Kings
flows from you my Royal warriors.

Do not fear the heat of battle
It is MY war and I am the conquering King
As My life is expressed through you
You are the giant killers in the land
Let every mountain move
As the trumpet shofar is sounded
Hear the sound echoing in the valleys.

There is no place to hide
Forces of darkness melt away
Be gone … enemies of the cross.

On the day of His Kingdom
His own stand up
And cry out His Great Name
The People of the King arise
and take their governmental seats
in heavenly realms with Christ
Our saviour in our land, be known.

‘Plumbline’ prophets to arise bringing fiery sword in their mouths

 

There’s only one place where I’ve previously heard the following remark Veronika West made. I’ve often heard Bible teacher Paul Keith Davis insist that prophetic visions and words must be measured against the ‘plumb-line’ of scripture, the Holy Bible. And now, here’s what our sister in Northern Ireland reported a week ago today:

“PLUMBLINE PROPHETS WILL ARISE IN THIS SEASON WITH A FIERY SWORD IN THEIR MOUTHS; A SWIFT AND SEVERE WORD OF JUDGEMENT WILL BRING FORTH RADICAL REALIGNMENT AND DIVINE REFORMATION”..!

ALL DAY I have heard the Spirit of God say,

“WATCH AND TAKE HEED! AS MY PLUMBLINE PROPHETS BEGIN TO ARISE IN THE MIDST YOU AND THEY SHALL ANNOUNCE A WORD OF SWIFT AND SEVERE JUDGEMENT THAT IS TO COME TO MY HOUSE, LISTEN AND PAY ATTENTION! FOR MY PLUMBLINE PROPHETS WILL CARRY A FIERY SWORD IN THEIR MOUTHS AND THEY SHALL UPROOT AND TEAR DOWN, DESTROY AND OVERTHROW, THEY SHALL BUILD AND PLANT, FOR THIS IS THE HOUR AND THE SEASON FOR RADICAL REALIGNMENT AND DIVINE REFORMATION IN MY HOUSE,” says the Spirit of God.

Veronika West, 17th January 2019

In gratitude to unknown artist of this splendid work

All-consuming Fire of God and the Wheat & Tares (GPS #28.3)

And so the Global Prophecy Signals continue with this triple cluster…

In yesterday’s God-incidental re-blogging of Love Not The World (a dream of churches and people being swallowed up) my fellow blogger R.J Dawson noted its similarity to his post of three years ago in Real Christianity – The Great Awakening and thought my readers would appreciate its content. Well I certainly do…so thank you very much RJ.

Having time only for a quick glance I decided to read it when back at my desk for today’s full blogging day. Rather than re-blog, it’s now copied below for ease of reading – preceded by a couple of other pieces of this ‘invisible jigsaw’.

And exactly as happened 2 x 12 days ago (see New Year’s Day reflective trilogy) , our morning reading from Sanctuary – Moments In His Presence based on Moses at the ‘burning’ bush and hearing from the Lord God, this topic was reinforced by subsequent material – and thus once more confirming the validity of each message.

Next, when at my desk and opening up email’s in-tray here’s what I found from Glasgow Prophetic Centre:

Lionbites: CHANGED BY ALL-CONSUMING FIRE

God has heard your desire to be a ‘world changer’. This is His desire for you too, but you must allow Him to change you first. And He says to you, “I came to set the world on fire by igniting your heart with my all-consuming fire.

“Will you meet with me and allow me to consume all of you? Don’t keep any part of yourself from me. Let my love come in and burn up the things that have held you back. Don’t hide or try cover up these things, but surrender them to me and allow me to burn you with my love. Let me ignite your heart with a passion that burns for me. For this world truly needs fiery ones who know the purity and passion of my love. Go and burn for me, and as you do, you will truly be one who changes your community, your nation, and your world.”

Luke 12:49 (TPT) – I have come to set the earth on fire. And how I long for every heart to be already ablaze with this fiery passion for God!

Hebrews 12:28-29 (TPT) – Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakeable kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe. For our God is a holy, devouring fire!

Last, but not least, with kind permission here’s R.J’s splendid offering:

PURIFICATION BY FIRE – Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

 “His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” [Matthew 3:12]

The grain kernel of wheat is composed of two parts: The inner part that we eat and the inedible outer hull. The inedible part must be separated from the edible part. There are two ways to remove the outer hull: Threshing and Winnowing.

THRESHING

Threshing was used on grains in which the hull was attached tightly to the grain kernel. In the days of our Lord, such covered grains were either soaked in water, or were lightly milled or even pounded upon to loosen the hull in order to remove it. The latter processes often damaged the edible grain.

WINNOWING

However, when dealing with grains in which the hull was relatively loose and light, little or no threshing was required. A winnowing fork was used instead to cast the grain into the air allowing the wind to separate the inedible hulls from the edible grain kernels. The light, papery hulls would float or fly away in the wind while the edible grain fell to the ground to be collected. These light separated inedible hulls are called chaff, a word derived from Middle English.

In both of these methods the unfit for consumption outer hull had to be removed from the grain kernel. Once removed the hull residue (chaff) was burned.

Keep in mind what the Lord Jesus had to go through as the new seed of all creation. He was baptized by John as our example though it was personally unnecessary. And though He had no hard outer hull He underwent the extreme process of hull removal on our behalf.

Both John the Immerser and the Lord Jesus used the rich imagery of hull removal in their preaching as illustrative of the process of salvation. The otherwise soft, warm, and loving human heart, characterized perfectly by the happy innocent hearts of young children, becomes hardened by a life of sin and rebellion against God. In time a hard outer shell forms over the human heart and creates an entirely different human nature from the original.

HEART CIRCUMCISION

This requires what the Lord refers to as heart circumcision:

“So circumcise your heart, and stiffen your neck no longer.” [Deuteronomy 10:16]

“Circumcise yourselves to the LORD and remove the foreskins of your heart, men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, or else My wrath will go forth like fire and burn with none to quench it, because of the evil of your deeds.” [Jeremiah 4:4]

Since human will and free choice must be involved in the process of salvation, the outer hulls of our hearts can only be removed by voluntarily submitting to the process of spiritual threshing or winnowing. For those with very hard hulls the process will be more difficult. For those with lighter papery hulls removal will be less difficult. But in either case, since all have sinned regardless of degree, ALL hearts MUST be circumcised or salvation is not possible. EVERYONE MUST undergo a new birth.

We can see by the very clear illustration of heart circumcision (circle cut) that salvation and new birth (being born again) is actually a reverting back or returning to one’s original created condition. Though real Christians will still have to battle their old nature in this world after undergoing a new birth and receiving real salvation, the new nature takes over and regains authority over the old sin nature.

So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! [2Corinthians 5:17 NRSV]

He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. [John 1:11-13]

“You must be born again.” [John 3:7]

 Submitting to heart circumcision is not an easy choice but obviously the best choice anyone could ever possibly make. If we have a hard outer shell on our heart, it is not so fun to subject ourselves to light milling or necessary pounding to remove it. It is also not so fun to be thrown up in the air with a winnowing fork so our old nature can become dust in the wind.

Keep in mind that John the Immerser was sent to soak the nation of Israel in water to loosen its national hull and thereby gain a softening of its national heart prior to the Lord’s ministry. The goal was threefold:

  1. Making the national heart receptive to the Lord
  2. Gaining national repentance—a wholesale turning away from sin and rebellion against God—and
  3. Undergoing a national heart circumcision.

The nation of Israel would thus be divided based on its response to John’s ministry and later the Lord’s. The first camp would include all those who honored John’s and the Lord’s ministry and complied. The second camp would be composed of all those who did not.

The Lord referred to the first camp as being composed of sheep, wheat, and good trees with good fruit—“the blessed of My Father”.

He referred to the second camp as made up of goats, chaff, tares, and bad trees with bad fruit—“accursed ones”.

For all those who refuse the great opportunity of salvation and being included in those returning to the Lord’s original sinless creation, however, something must be done with them.

If it was grain kernels with very hard and stuck fast outer hulls that refused the proper treatment toward removal, such grain would be no good for anything and would certainly not be edible. But even if it was grain with light papery hulls, if winnowing was refused it also would remain inedible.

The only thing to be done with such bad grain that still contained an otherwise edible kernel was throw it in the pile of the inedible chaff that was removed from the good grain.

This is what John meant when he said the following:

“His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” [Matthew 3:12]

In order for the Lord to continue the process of new creation, the following verses illustrate more examples of allegorical entities which must be eliminated through the ultimate means of purification—Fire:

“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” [Matthew 3:10]

“The tares are gathered up and burned with fire.” [Matthew 13:40]

“The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire.” [Matthew 13:41-42]

“The angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire.” [Matthew 13:49-50]

“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones (goats), into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels…” [Matthew 25:41]

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.” [John 15:5-6][1]

Prophetic vision of Britain being purified by holy fire

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words and Rick Davis for the following published yesterday – and a political cartoonist seems to have caught something of this vital message:

HOUSE AND LAND MUST BE PURIFIED BY FIRE

During the very early morning of 8th January, I had a dream (or maybe a vision). I wasn’t told to release it and the meaning I was given for it until today.

The vision was of a house burning, and then I saw it burnt down. Next I saw it rebuilt. I have never seen the house before that I know of. I either knew or was told when wondering what this meant, that God burned the house down because it was not adequate or right for the future, and in it’s place He built a new one that WAS adequate; in fact perfect for the future.

In thinking about it that morning, it was like the old wineskin/new wineskin idea — new wine requires a new skin. (Even we, when we are fully changed at His coming, will require a new skin, a spiritual skin.)

I asked the Lord who or what this was about, to whom or what this applied. He answered,

“This is about the UK and Brexit. Brexit is a change of governmental leadership for the UK — the moving of the UK from being ruled in many ways by the kingdom of darkness to being ruled by the Kingdom of Light, the Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom of God.

“For the UK to survive and then thrive this seismic shift in government, the old house, being completely inadequate and inappropriate for habitation by the Kingdom of God, must needs be burned down with My Holy Fire, and rebuilt with My foundation, wall and roof, with more adequate room and facilities. Simply tearing it down is not enough, for the house and land MUST be purified by My Holy Fire.

“Your part in this, My people, is the throwing down, the tearing down, and then afterwards, the planting and building up, all through your declarations and petitions guided by My Spirit. My part is the carrying out of these and the purifying which only I can do.

“So, I say to you, My watchmen, My prophets, My intercessors, My Church, listen well and heed the instructions of My Spirit, nothing doubting, for as you have asked and will ask for My strategies and blueprints for the future through which you will align yourselves with My will, My agenda, My purposes, thoughts, ways, and plans, you will hear the Voice of My Spirit guide and direct you, and My will will be done on earth in the UK.”

Is weighing vs. restoration on God’s agenda in EU and UK? (F/P #162.13)

This was published a week ago today, Saturday 30th June, by Veronika West. As with  all prophetic words and visions it is offered for weighing with the Lord and testing:

A POWERFUL DREAM CONCERNING THE UNITED KINGDOM, BREXIT AND MANY NATIONS IN EUROPE….;

WATCH AND PRAY OVER THE HARVEST FIELDS OF EUROPE, WATCH AND BE READY! FOR THE GNAWING LOCUSTS, SWARMING LOCUSTS, CREEPING AND STRIPPING LOCUSTS HAVE BEEN UNLEASHED AND THEY SHALL DEVOUR AND DEVASTATE THE LAND!

A few days ago during a 7-day fast, I had a very powerful dream that I believe speaks to the United Kingdom, BREXIT, the EU and many Nations of Europe. Now in this clear and vivid dream I was standing high above the centre of Europe. Now in the dream As I looked down at the different countries of Europe my eyes were immediately drawn to what looked like a large black cloud in the shape of a man’s hand rising from the depths of the sea. Now as I remained watching in the dream, I saw that the large black cloud was moving quickly, and rapidly increasing in size, I watched as the hand grew larger and larger and I saw the five fingers of the hand grow longer and longer. Now in the dream I could clearly see the large, black hand fast approaching the centre of Europe.

Now as I stayed watching, suddenly I saw the fingers of the hand begin to write these words upon the landscape of Europe,

“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN”!,

Then I heard these words,

“EUROPE, EUROPE WAKE UP AND WAIL, RETURN AND REPENT FOR THE DAYS OF YOUR REIGN HAVE BEEN NUMBERED, YOU HAVE BEEN WEIGHED ON THE SCALES AND FOUND WANTING, YOUR KINGDOM WILL BE DIVIDED FOR YOU HAVE EATEN THE DELICACIES OF DARKNESS AND WITCHCRAFT AND THE DOOR TO DEATH AND DESTRUCTION HAS BEEN OPENED WIDE OVER THE LAND”, says the Spirit of God.

“EUROPE, EUROPE, WATCH AND PRAY OVER THE HARVEST FIELDS, FOR THE LOCUSTS ARE NOW INVADING, THE GNAWING LOCUSTS, THE SWARMING LOCUSTS, THE CREEPING LOCUSTS AND THE STRIPPING LOCUSTS SHALL MULTIPLY AND INCREASE. WATCH! FOR DARKNESS INCREASES AS THE HAND OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION NOW MOVES UPON THE WATERS OF THE SEA AND LAND”, says the Spirit of God.

As I heard those words in the spirit realm going forth across the land, I began to CRY OUT FOR GOD’S MERCY, MERCY, MERCY IN THE MIDST OF JUDGEMENT OVER EUROPE..!

Then the dream suddenly shifted and I found myself standing over the land of the United Kingdom and I saw an ANCIENT DOOR OPEN WIDE OVER THE NATION, as I looked at the door I saw these words, “FIRE EXIT”, written upon its mantle; now as I looked at the words “FIRE EXIT” I saw the number (91) deeply engraved into the wood of the door. Immediately the Holy Spirit whispered to me, “Psalm 91”, then I heard these words,

“MY BELOVED GREAT BRITAIN, WATCH! FOR A DOOR OF DELIVERANCE NOW OPENS UP BEFORE YOU, MY MERCY NOW MAKES A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMED NO WAY, MY BELOVED, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU I AM THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO LIFE, COME AND ENTER IN QUICKLY, FOR NOW IS THE TIME, NOW IS THE SEASON, FOR THE DOOR THAT LEADS TO DOUBLE RESTORATION AND RESTITUTION STANDS OPEN BEFORE YOU THIS DAY”! (The Dream Ended)…!

PSALM 91 “A DOOR OF DELIVERANCE STANDS OPEN BEFORE THE UNITED KINGDOM, ENTER IN QUICKLY!”, says the Lord….!
Safe and Secure
When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai,
you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.
2 He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me,
the only God for me, and my great confidence.
3 He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy,
and he will protect you from false accusation
and any deadly curse.
4 His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you.
You can run under his covering of majesty and hide.
His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.
5 You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night
nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you.
6 Don’t fear a thing!
Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you,
nor will the powers of evil launched against you.
7 Even in a time of disaster, with thousands and thousands being killed,
you will remain unscathed and unharmed.
8 you will be a spectator as the wicked perish in judgment,
for they will be paid back for what they have done!
9–10 When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High,
our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm.
How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?
11 God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go,
defending you from all harm.
12 If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you
and keep you from stumbling.
13 You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness,
trampling every one of them beneath your feet!
14 For here is what the Lord has spoken to me:
“Because you have delighted in me as my great lover,
I will greatly protect you.
I will set you in a high place, safe and secure before my face.
15 I will answer your cry for help every time you pray,
and you will find and feel my presence
even in your time of pressure and trouble.
I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast.
16 You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you.
For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!”

SELAH

Veronika West, 30th June 2018

RB’s Note:
  • A couple of very recent words brought by Veronika have proved accurate, but after having scheduled this on Thursday for auto-publication I had reservations about that upon waking Friday morning.
  • I’m generally wary of ‘doom and gloom’ prophecies, (ie. threats of judgement and destruction) unless coming as a warning with promise of blessing (eg that brought in Nov 2015 by David Noakes, which is being fulfilled). So yesterday morning I offered my doubts to the Lord, asking if it’s ok to republish. I immediately sensed, “Do it!”
  • Part of a dream I had this morning involved our going into a side-hall at a church service and where front rows were packed solid with youngsters awaiting the fire of God to fall! Let it be so Lord – maranatha!

Vision and Word on reviving Revival for Britain, and beyond!

Don’t you love it when the Lord points to similar incidents that ‘just so happen’ in our lives? It happened a week ago tonight and tomorrow, just like pieces of God’s invisible jigsaw:

First Jigsaw Piece:

This prophetic vision and word delivered by Robert Joy of Kingdom Cause Community appeared last Thursday morning on UK Prophetic Words (republished with permission):

WORD FOR GREAT BRITAIN AND BEYOND – THE WINDS OF REVIVAL

Recently, when praying, I had a clear vision for the nation of Great Britain and beyond. It was panoramic, a crystal clear vision. I’ve had lots of dreams and visions but there have been few that put so much attention on the need for an immediate response.

In the vision, I was standing as if in the sea looking towards the white cliffs of Dover from Europe. And I saw the Union Jack flag positioned at the top of the white cliffs of Dover. I noticed that the flag wasn’t blowing. It was just stationary, motionless. And as I looked in this vision, I saw this huge dense thick block of ice wrapped round the flag that was preventing the flag from blowing; the wind couldn’t get to it. And the Lord began to speak to me; He said, “Son, the majority of the church in this nation has become cold. It’s become lifeless; it’s become just religious.”

And the cry came in my heart, ‘Where is the wind; where is the wind?’ When I say wind, I’m talking about the Spirit of God. In Acts 2:2 it describes the Spirit of God as the wind: Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm (TPT). It wasn’t just a little tinkling breeze. This was an outpouring of the Spirit of God with such ferocity, with such violence, that when it came, it shook the whole place. One hundred and twenty were baptised in the Spirit of God, with tongues of fire remaining on them, infusing them, empowering them. This wasn’t a natural wind. This was the Spirit of God. When you look at the Word wind in the Greek or Hebrew, it always points to the breath of God or the Spirit of God. It is the pneuma, the ruach, the breath of God.

And I just felt like there’s a wind coming, there’s a wind coming, but I tell you, the wind will only touch those who lay their lives down. A few days after the first vision, I was praying in my living room, just ministering to the Lord, and I had a picture of me, and my face was right by the floor, low, low down. And I saw like a wind coming; it went right through my face.

And I said, “Lord, what does that mean?” And He said, “Son, the wind that is coming will only touch the lowly. It will only touch those that are contrite and laid down and humble, that put down their own agenda, that lay down their own platforms and their own programmes and their own plans – lay their face to the ground in the spirit, and say: God, how dare I try and do anything without your presence?”

God resists the proud. And so God’s holding back from so many churches this incredible wind of his Spirit because hearts are cold. And all he wants you to do is just to lay yourself down, and he’ll release the Holy Spirit like we’ve never known before.

And last night God spoke to me, and he said,

“I’m about to revive Revival”.

And what the Lord showed me was this: the wind is about blow and it’s going to pick back up every single one of those ancient Revivals; all of them will be resurrected and restored. There is going to be a Revival like we have never seen before. It will be THE GREATEST AWAKENING, not just another great awakening. It will be like we have NEVER EVER KNOWN!

The Welsh Revival will be picked back up; the Hebrides Revival, Azusa Street Revival. Pensacola and Toronto and all those outpourings. They all brought with them something unique to the body of Christ. The Azusa Street Revival was all about the outpouring of the gift of tongues and the ministry gifts. And words of knowledge and all that stuff being released again. I’m telling you, we’re about to see a ‘word of knowledge’ revival like we have never seen before. The Lord is about to release everyday people to go into the marketplaces and to get words of knowledge and release people from their bondage, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Acts 2 says: ‘This is what I will do in the last days...’ Here is the gauge, the benchmark, the true litmus test of what God is doing in the church. God clearly says, “I will do this in the last days: I will pour out my Spirit on everybody and cause your sons and daughters to prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will experience dreams from God. The Holy Spirit will come upon all my servants, men and women alike, and they will prophesy.” (Acts 2:17-18 TPT)

God wants to blow in such a way that the streets of our land are filled with everyday revivalists, hungry to see God move in the marketplaces and stun the world as Jesus’ power is revealed.

And what the Lord said to me was this: that the wind that is coming is going to carry with it refreshing; it’s going to carry with it healing; it’s going to carry with it anointing; it’s going to carry with it forgiveness and mercy and grace. It’s going to carry with it fresh songs of the Lord and fresh prophetic words and raise up men and women of God, young and old.

But at the same time as it blows in carrying something in, it’s also going to carry something out. It’s going to carry out your hardships; it’s going to carry out your strivings; it’s going to carry out your failings; it’s going to carry out your insecurity; it’s going to carry out your judgements of one another.

It’s going to bring us to our knees. And the same wind that carries in the glory of God will carry out the worldliness and the Babylonian church thinking. And it’s going to be an incredible wind of the Spirit. And I believe it’s coming over from Europe; I believe it’s going to hit Great Britain; I believe it’s going to affect the whole continent of Europe. There is going to be an incredible reviving of all of those revivals. It’s going to fill stadiums around the world; it is going to fill fields and car parks.

My wife Lydia had a dream the other night; she said, “You were giving a word of knowledge in a pub and the guy came forward, responded to the word of knowledge. As you gave it to him, the dream turned; there was a huge queue going right out the pub – people waiting for you to prophesy over them.” Two days later, Anna Sofia, a friend of ours rings me up, she says, “Rob I had a dream: you were walking through the street and there was an army behind you. And you were teaching them and training them how to heal the sick. And there was a healing movement breaking out in the streets.”

And I’ve been prophesying for nearly a decade now that the next real revival will not come through a platform and a preacher, but through the corporate body being obedient to go into all the world. The moment you become professional, the wind will pass you by. The moment you continue to carry offense, the wind will pass you by. The moment you continue to be judgmental of others that make mistakes and fall, or don’t dress the way you like or speak the way you like, the wind of God is going to pass you by.

I’m telling you this, the only way you’re going to receive this wind and keep this wind is when you get on your knees, put your face on the floor, in the spirit I’m speaking about, lay yourself down. Jesus said this, “The Son of Man has not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

I’m telling you, if you want to see revival, serve your neighbour. Serve one another. Learn to build each other up and encourage each other. When we learn to honour each other, we’re going to see the wind blow, and the ice will unfreeze; it will fall off, and we will start to see Aslan on the move again in the nations of the world.

The cry of God’s heart is for the people of God today to cry out, “Where is the wind? Where is it? Where is the real manifestation of the Spirit of God?” Lord, you are not hiding from Great Britain; you are hovering. And you do not hover without a purpose. You are hovering and you are waiting for the spoken Word. And you have shown us God through Ezekiel, that we have to speak that Word: prophesy to the breath; prophesy to the wind. Speak to the dry valleys and the dry bones:

“Hear the Word of the living God.”

Robert Joy, 6th May 2018:

Rob is currently on a Winds of Revival tour. Watch and listen to him preach a powerful message based upon the vision and word on this video:

 

Second Jigsaw Piece:

Last Thursday was a full-blogging day before starting our long weekend and to ensure the above wouldn’t escape my attention, editor Suzanne Payne kindly sent me a copy direct. I acknowledged and over the weekend read a hard-copy, but was amazed that what Rob’s wife had told him about being in a pub had in fact happened with our own rector in the village pub at Liphook the Thursday night!!

He’d been given permission to have a small team visit it to pray for anyone who wanted to be prayed for. However, our visit clashed with weekly quiz night! Joining in with that event led to people starting to talk after it finished and rector reports, “One by one they began to open up – the real breakthrough came when I prayed for a bad arm – the pain went from 10 to 5 almost immediately & ended up praying for…- that was enough to get the conversation going!!”

Third Jigsaw Piece:

On pasting Rob’s text from UKPW I noticed the video, played an excerpt and found where he talks about the vision and how he heard from the Lord. He starts introducing it at 1:05:00 mark and then what I hear from 1:10:00 speaks to me of the Smith Wigglesworth 1947 & 1997(!) Visions of mighty Revival in Britain. Do read about them via that link!

Also note Rob’s Call to Intercession re-issued from last June.
