Today’s Lion Bite: “I have overcome the world and its chaos – so watch!”

Thank you to the Lord and Glasgow’s ‘centre for prophetic excellence’ for the latest:

I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD AND ITS CHAOS

‘The Lord took me up in the spirit, and I saw the entire earth; floods, wars, famines and , yet the Lord said to me with great force,

“Do not worry about such things for I have overcome the world.”

‘He said,

“Keep your eyes fixed on me and not on circumstances in and around you. Choose to look with your spiritual eyes and see what I am doing, for it far outweighs that which is going on in the world. I am bringing order out of chaos; I am calling time on things that are not of me.

“So watch and see what I am going to do!”

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Selah!

Renowned prophet sees devil’s domain in deep disarray

On Friday this video appeared on Emma Stark’s Facebook and subscribers to Glasgow Prophetic Centre’s Lion Bites were emailed ‘You Need To Hear This Word of The Lord’.

I’m grateful to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this transcript (colour-text RB):

‘God said some amazing things to me recently and I wanted you to be the first to know, so that you can be blessed and released to advance at this time.

‘The Lord said to me, “Do you want to see Satan?” And I thought, ‘What a peculiar question!’ and I said, “God, actually, do you know what – no thank you very much!” And God said, “But I’d like to show you Satan,” and I said, “But God, I’d really rather see you.” And He said to me, “Emma, you see Me all the time.”

‘He took me to a place where he lifted back the veil and, for the first time actually ever in my life, I saw Satan in the distance and what absolutely shocked me was how panicked he was! He was pacing the floor. He was so full of anxiety. He was behaving like a truly defeated foe. And I started to hear (or God let me hear) him muttering under his breath, and he was saying “My power is limited; my power is limited.” And he said Leviathan and Jezebel had gone to him – two of his great demonic generals – wanting more power, and he had no more power to give them because of the effectiveness of the prayers of the Saints. And I could hear him say that Leviathan’s teeth had been broken in warfare, and that that strongman was in the process of being overthrown and defeated. And there was such a sense of panic in the enemy camp, and also a sense that the enemy was on the cusp of an internal civil war because of the acknowledgement that they had run out of power.

‘Now you and I know as Christian believers, we don’t need to think in the morning, ‘Oh, do you know I’ve only got five prayers today; what am I going to use them on?’ But actually, Satan does need to think like that because he is a limited being. But at the moment, I believe God is saying to us that his camp is in a crisis like it has never been in for many years. And the sense of panic in Satan’s mind is because he is going to have to take his eye off the earth and off us to deal with his own in-house battles.

‘And I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that this is a time for great victory, where you can take back that which was lost. And the Lord says that Satan’s grip is so loose on some things that where there were some business deals which didn’t come through, some buildings you were supposed to own, some properties you were supposed to move into, some things that were supposed to happen, the Lord is saying that He is loosing over his church an anointing to catch up and to take ground, but also to ‘retake’ that which was already lost. And the Lord spoke the word “CATCH UP!” with such a force that it started to resonate in our thinking and we started to remember where we were supposed to be.

‘So I want to loose that blessing over you right now that God is saying, He is releasing a ‘catch-up’ grace; that the time that you have lost and the things that have been taken are going to come right back into your world right now.

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” And the Lord said, “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.” And many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.

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

‘I heard the Lord say to the prophets in the land and people of revelation … that He is about to catch you up; that you are going to see regionally, and not just locally, that actually – do you remember when John goes up in Revelation and he sees all the churches of the region? And God says, at this time He is going to raise his leaders and His prophetic people to start to be a voice of leadership in national crisis. But He is going to bless you to be caught up to see more than you’ve ever seen before.

‘But then I heard God, just this week, say something quite remarkable. He says: “What sort of revival do you want?” He said to me, “Emma, the church gets to choose.” And He said, “You can have a revival that’s very similar to what you have known before.” And I’m like, “Well that sounds quite good God.” Depth of presence – it felt like water of glory cascading. And then He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now, and some of you just need to put your hand up wherever you are, because He’s giving back to you a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

‘So I want to say, be encouraged. The enemy is at his weakest. God is humbling a nation and He is rushing towards us. Be blessed.’

Lion Bites that don’t let go…Practising the Presence

Blogging plans and priorities brewing over the weekend were about meeting a new focus, as implied at the close of last Friday’s post on seizing opportunities. I didn’t spell it out for the sake of closely guarding my purpose; but suffice to say, I was really surprised at what I’d sensed the Lord wants of me in this harvest-time. SO, I had a plan in mind for some ‘tests’ of republishing a few old posts as and when possible during a busy week, but don’t want to swamp my regular readership.

It ‘just so’ happens the Lord had directed Emma and David Stark at Glasgow Prophetic Centre, to personalise the next Lion Bites email to subscribers. This stirring word brought confirmation to my spirit (make it personal for you too by replacing my name with yours) and then got hammered home the next day:

Monday – GOD IS CALLING YOU LOUD AND CLEAR

The Lord is asking these questions in the earth;

“Who will be a nation changer today? Who will be willing to rise up from what is occupying their time to hear and obey my voice?”

God says “I am calling you, Richard, out to build and establish My Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven in your generation.”

David was the least in His father’s house yet, after much training in the secret place tending sheep, he was used mightily by God to deliver an entire nation. Do not allow yourself to think you are insignificant. Your steadfast trust in God amidst your trial has been preperation for the call and destiny God has put within you. You are, indeed, significant.

Make a decision today to heed the call of God, get up and go! Bring glory to God as you leave a legacy for future generations as they see, and are spurred on by the evidence of the great things He shall do through your yielded life.

Matthew 4:19

Then He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men”.

Tuesday – COME AND SIT WITH GOD TODAY 

God says. “Come and sit awhile with me and let me be your sounding board.

“I long to chat through your hopes and dreams with you. They are a delight to my heart as you are a delight to me. I love to hear your enthusiasm and excitement for the things I have placed within you; the seeds that I sowed long ago that are now starting to shoot through your spirit and manifest in your life. I am excited, just as you are excited!

“Let us plan together while remembering that nothing is impossible for me. I have watched you grow to this place and this time. Know not to be afraid of what is ahead and, as you step out and into what you know to be next, see that I have already prepared a way for you.

“As you sit with me today, I am giving to you know confidence in the gifts and anointing that you carry. For I have given them to you, establishing them deep within. A firm foundation has been built, and now it is time for brick to be laid upon brick; for you to begin to move into the next area of your call.”

Zechariah 8:9

This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Now hear these words, “Let your hands be strong so that the temple may be built”. This is also what the prophets said who were present when the foundation was laid for the house of the Lord Almighty.’

Invisible Jigsaw pieces: ‘thin places’, open heavens, new season in Wales

Today’s first priority was to put finishing touches (as below) to previous post and publish. Only then did I check my email and notice these notifications automatically posted a few hours earlier, and re-published with the permission of Glasgow Prophetic Centre and UK Prophetic Words:

Lion Bites – OPEN DOORS IN HEAVEN 🔑

“My dear child, I have watched and rejoiced over your fiery heart that burns with much passion – for my sake and others’ sake. I have listened as you cried from deep within, asking me to open new doors to you, doors of opportunities to advance my kingdom in the lives of others.

“Know this; I am now calling you to come apart with me for a time, out with of your busy routine, spending time alone with me in prayer and in seeking my face. As you do so, I will come and meet you in this place, and you will be lifted into new dimensions of my spirit.

“In this new place, your eyes will be opened to see that doors of opportunity and of ministry that I have called you to. Walking through these now open doors will move you closer to your destiny and your purpose. This open door will shift you into a place of an acute awareness of my voice and ability to see what I am doing in the spirit realm. It brings with it certainty about the call I have placed on your life and confidence to outwork what I placed within you.”

Today, commit before God to ‘come away’ with Him and, as you do so, you will be lifted up to see your open door.

Revelation 4:1 –
After this, I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven…

Simon Plant: A NEW DAWN AND A NEW SEASON IN WALES

The Son will be revealed through dark clouds of the past.

There is a new dawn and a new season in Wales.

Turn your heads towards me. There shall be new stories written, there shall be new songs sung. These stories and songs will come together in unity to form a new narrative and sound in Wales.

A new narrative of testimony, peace and unity and a new pure sound of praise and worship will arise and shine My light and glory as bright as the Sun. The light of this new dawn will shine into the dark corners of your neighbourhoods where you have feared to walk, into broken hearts and lives that have remained untouched.

In my presence and light there will be a thawing of the ground. As the earth warms, bulbs that have laid dormant for decades will begin to return to life and push through the weight of the soil that has sat over their heads.

Are you ready My Bride? For many shall join you this year to form a host of golden daffodils.

Simon Plant, 1st March’17

EARLY MORNING EVENT!

It just so happens ‘coincidentally’, I’d been inspired upon waking to make minor changes to the previous post’s draft that was left unchecked as we went out yesterday. 

It was entitled ‘On ‘The Veil’ Separating Heaven and Earth’ but I was strongly impressed it needed a different emphasis by putting Phil Mason’s sub-header ‘Thin Places’ in my title and inserting a fresh opening paragraph about this term. Yet I did not suspect that more invisible jigsaw pieces were falling into place.

A family friend runs tours of ancient sites connected with Celtic Christianity and so I know about ‘thin places’, but I wanted a link for readers and ‘googled’ that term. I hit one of the top sites, but upon reading I saw it’s the community a ‘team’ friend is connected with and where others will be ‘on retreat’ later this month!

AND with Peter, another mutual friend, we’d chatted yesterday afternoon about previous blog references to darkness, the midnight hour etc. He reminded me of ancient Jewish wedding customs and how they relate to the parable of wise and foolish virgins and the return of Jesus for His bride. So, out of the darkness comes the glory of the risen King!!

After amending the draft post I was about to hit the ‘Publish’ button BUT got firmly nudged into providing a link to our 2014 trip to South Wales and the renowned retreat centre in ‘little England’ (Pembrokeshire). So almost as an afterthought, the link thereto got added to the amended post!!!

Only afterwards did I read today’s emails directly related to thin places as open doors and on Wales – and the opening lines of what Simon brings from the Lord refers to His being revealed out of ‘dark clouds’ and to a ‘new dawn’!

ALL TO YOUR GLORY ALONE LORD – I praise and thank you.

GPS#6 – today’s trilogy of mighty encouragement

A sequence of three email provides this Global Prophecy Signal from Scotland, England and Australia (but time-stamped in reverse order). In reading them I noted a connecting thread but a day busy on many activities means only extracts are shown. To read the words in full click the appropriate links (emphases added):

Lion Bites: KEEP YOUR HEAVENLY PERSPECTIVE

God has not called you to be one who gives in to fearful circumstances which threaten to engulf your heart and mind. He has called you be one whose daily experience is joy and peace, knowing that His love is greater than any problem……Decide right now, as you read this word from God to trust Him and view all things through the heavenly lens of faith.

Hebrews 12:2
Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end. He did not give up because of the cross…

Chris Bennett 3 Feb: HANG ON to Your Faith – HANG ON to ME

“HANG ON!” I hear the Lord calling over the tumult. “HANG ON to your faith, HANG ON to ME”, says the Lord, “For there is happening a backlash, an assault, a persecution so vicious it will stagger even the most fervent and zealous of My children. But even in the midst of the storm, My love will prevail.” says the Lord. “In the face of the enemy’s onslaught, you will see thousands turning to Me!”

Many prophets in these days are facing a daily assault and heavy fire from the satanic hordes. There is an unrelenting storm being thrown at Gods people and the prophets are bearing the brunt of it…

“…Can you not hear the victory shouts of My mighty army as the forces of evil are thrown back – and back – and back again?

“It has begun,” says the Lord.Stand by for your new orders, for new revelations, for new plans. The enemy is already retreating. Your victory is assured!”

Lana Vawser: I’m Releasing a Company of Prophets Who’ve Been Through The Fire and Carry Arrows of Fire to Bring a Great Realignment to the Church

“I am now releasing a company of prophets who have been through the fire and carry the arrows of fire in their hands, to bring a great re-alignment in the Church.”

I saw the Lord positioning these prophets, who have been through the fire, these ones who have allowed the Lord to do a deep work in their hearts and souls and who really carry His heart. These ones have been through an incredible testing in this season, an incredible time of purification and pruning and now the Lord is releasing them into places of greater favour.

I saw the Lord hand them arrows of fire and as I looked at their mouths, I could see their mouths like normal, but at the same time, I could see a MEGAPHONE over their mouths. The sense surrounded me that the voice of these prophets is about to get loud…continue reading this mightily exciting message.

GPS#5: the Lord’s gift of discernment in darkness

For this example of God’s Global Prophecy Signals we consider and weigh two slightly contrasting yet similar prophetic words published this morning in Scotland by Glasgow Prophetic Centre and in Australia by Lana Vaser Ministries

First, we touch base sitting at the Lord’s feet.:

Lion Bites: “MY LIGHTS IN THE HEAVENS ARE VAST”

Hand Reaching for Stars Victor HabbickI heard the Lord say,

“Child, do not fear the darkness for it is in the darkness that I can whisper tender words, and you will hear them. It is in those times when I have you totally to myself, without distraction, that I have your full attention and I can show you my love in ways beyond human understanding.

“Oh how I long to bring you to that place where you can look up and see the vastness of the galaxies, the innumerable lights in the sky that I have called each by name. I long to show you the reality of eternity; of the timelessness of my power and love. You will understand the truth of how even in the darkest times my promises shine the brightest.

“So look up, don’t allow dark circumstances to cloud your vision, know that I have overcome the darkness and that nothing can snatch you from my eternal promises.”

Isaiah 66:2
This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD.

NEXT, from our elevated place sitting alongside Him we’re blessed with deeper, practical guidance (emphases added):

Lana Vawser: THE LORD SPOKE TO ME THIS MORNING: “USE YOUR MUG WITH THE OWLS ON IT!”

LanaVawserThis morning as I went to make my coffee, I opened the cupboard to grab a mug and went to grab one of the ones I usually use. The Lord then whispers to me “Not that one, use the one with the OWLS”.

So I reach up to the top shelf and grab the coffee mug with the owls on it. The Lord speaks to me and says:

“I am highlighting OWLS again as a prophetic picture because as My people lean in, and reach up (pursue Me), I am giving them EYES to see in the dark. As they SEE what the enemy is planning, planting and plotting, what is happening in the dark, I am giving them heavenly wisdom to UNDO. Through the implemented wisdom of My heart in intercession and practical strategy, they will see these plans and assignments foiled in individuals lives, families, towns, cities and nations, before they are even implemented or have a chance to take root. Consequently, there will be a greater demonstration of My VICTORY all around.”

“First, the prophetic significance of an Owl is that it represents the “apostolic”. An owl can see things from a distance in very dark places. And it hunts rats. The church is moving into an age whereby they will go into the so-called “darkest places” and see exactly what needs to happen for Heaven to invade those situations. And they will hunt the “rats” of this age, the forces of darkness. The Kingdom of Heaven is coming like a flood, and the forces of darkness no longer have anywhere to hide! An apostolic focus whereby each and every member of the church will know they are sown like seed into the world, ready to terrorise the servants of darkness and usher in the Kingdom of Heaven!” (Quote by James Preston – jamespreston.org )

As I pondered this prophetic picture of OWLS.. The Lord then highlighted to me 2 Kings 6:8-12:

Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.”

The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.

This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”

“None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” (New International Version)

The Lord is giving His people who are pursuing Him, worshiping in Spirit and truth, EYES to SEE in the DARK what is being planned. He is giving His people EYES OF STRATEGY to move forward into VICTORY!!!!!!

Warning dreams, prophetic insight and sharper clarity is increasing in significant ways right now. When the Lord shows you a strategy of the enemy, don’t fear, ask for His wisdom and strategy and WATCH AND SEE how He is sending you in stealth, under the radar, through your intercession and other ways to DISARM AND OVERTURN TO JESUS NAME!!!

Listening to a Steffany Gretzinger instagram live video yesterday she mentioned 17 is the number of TOTAL VICTORY. It is also the number for ALIGNMENT. In 2017 the Lord is bringing ALIGNMENT and TOTAL VICTORY! There’s a greater “taking of ground” happening. The people of God are being awakened in greater ways to living on the offence rather than defence. There’s a great FOILING of the enemy’s plans that’s happening right now as God’s people LEAN IN and ask for EYES TO SEE in the dark.

You have been marked VICTORIOUS in Jesus name and the Lord is going to use you with your EYES TO SEE IN THE DARK to see the MANIFESTED VICTORY of JESUS released into the lives of others, cities and nations.

Today’s Lion Bites: a re-visitation of fire

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti“I am revisiting you with My fire and My power.

“I am calling you to come into a deeper and fuller encounter with Me and with who I am.

“Move towards Me now as I call to you, to meet you where I am in this new season. Come and meet with Me.

“For there is a place, I have prepared for you of fullness that will satisfy the longing you have. Come and behold Me as I hold you. Come and receive of My power and My fire in these days. For there is much to receive and much to outwork but first receive of My fresh-fire and My power.”

There is a new baptism of fire coming to the church and God is inviting us to pursue it and chase after Him in a new way. We are to position ourselves for the fullness of the fire and the fullness of His power in these days. So choose to position yourself and choose to press in for this fullness for these are the days of a new outpouring of God’s Baptism of fire.

Matthew 3:11
“I baptise you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

Tongues of Fire; Acts 2-3

Lion Bites: Isaiah 43:18-19 – implode or explode!

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

Today’s Lion Bite appropriately follows Tim Sheet’s (brother of Dutch Sheets) comment in his How to Live in the Kingdom Age, “I have been very encouraged because there is one thing that seems to be coming up and that is that we are stepping into a NEW ERA.”

IMPLODE OR EXPLODE

Lion-Bites-logo-2012We in a time where the ‘new’ has becoming a ‘bigger new’ than we could ever have imagined in days past. So many things are changing in the world: politically, financially, medical advances and so on. Particularly in the church things are changing – some even are disappearing and others are emerging.

I heard the Lord ask, “Implosion or explosion – where is your life today?”

  • Implode means ‘to burst, or cause to burst, inwards’
  • Explode means ‘to expand suddenly with a loud noise owing to a release of internal energy’

Are there things in your life which are imploding – producing no fruit and coming to an end? These are the ‘former things’. Seek the Holy Spirit and ask what the ‘new things’ are which He is waiting to explode into your life: new blessings, new relationships and new opportunities.

Our personal invitation to build the Kingdom – part 1

My doubt that Adam and Eve were the very first people met a chuckle but got no answer. My devout mother was amused at her pre-school son asking, “But who built their house?” To my boyish mind someone must have been around to do that.

Upon recalling that early memory decades later I can see the funny side – but more so in view of what I’d written last week for publishing on Saturday as 5th anniversary of a dream about the Kingdom of God being set up. That had been confirmed by not only a prophetical concurrent comment from Bill Johnson but also, and especially by, how exactly part of my dream matched Christen Forster’s interpretation of the Hebrew text that describes the rebuilding of the Temple in Ezra 4.

Also over the last few days I’ve been mulling over the mismatch between modern church and Jesus’ personal promise at Matthew 16:18 against demonic power portals,

“I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it”

Lion-Bites-logo-2012SO, I was most amazed on Saturday to find that Friday’s LionBites word from Glasgow Prophetic Centre is about building the Kingdom!  This impels me to urge you to view this as of the Lord and to weigh and act upon it accordingly. Part 2 is published today and the whole message reads as follows:  Continue reading

Visions of New Britain’s natural and spiritual renewal – #1

cruise0131

On return after the long weekend I found two emails about similar visions of great blessing upon the land and people now we’re being freed from the shackles of slavery to the EU. This from Angela Jelf was sent on Friday morning:

‘Thought I would email you about an experience (or series of God-incidences) I had on Monday. Whilst driving I was singing along to a Bethel Worship CD.  ONE of the songs on the album is instrumental so I began to sing out my own song to God. It became a prophetic prayer over Britain. As I sang, I saw in my mind’s eye a map of the British Isles, and suddenly, from the south and going upwards into the North, I saw flowers springing up all over the place and beginning to unfurl their petals, just like in those films you sometimes see that have been speeded up. (Heard a prophecy about things happening quickly recently…what would have taken seven years will take seven months and what would have taken seven months will take seven days.)

I felt this was to do with our coming away from the EU and that something has/or will begin to change in the UK. The land will bloom and blossom once again as we are cut off from a kind of spiritual ‘shade’ that’s been over us.  It was a beautiful picture which reminded me of The Secret Garden, where the locked up garden has fallen into neglect and the children find the key to the door and begin to clear away the branches and the brambles and leaves and let the light back in.

As I kept singing I began to declare that as a prophetic sign we would begin to see and hear reports of an increase in all sorts of wildlife that hasn’t been seen in years – I particularly sensed and called out an increase in butterflies, birds and beetles.
Before going to bed on Monday night, I felt intrigued. Had there been a decline in British Wildlife in recent years?  Curiously I typed into Google “UK wildlife in decline over last 40 years” (I typed 40 yrs deliberately knowing we’ve been EU members for roughly 40 yrs) & to my surprise I found report after report. Yes, there has been a hugely significant decline in wildlife – specifically butterflies and birds and specifically over the last 40 years!
The Essex Skipper, the Small Heath, The Wall butterfly, the Marsh Fritillary, and many others have experienced up to a 76 percent decline in abundance or occurrence over last four decades (according to an article on the Butterfly Conservation Website, dated 14 Dec, 2015).

It’s the same sad story with birds: Willow Tits, Turtle doves, Cuckoos, Starlings, Lapwings and Grey Partridges falling into ‘shocking’ decline over past forty years, not to mention the sparrow.

When I saw the Turtle Dove mentioned, I had a feeling it was a bird found in scripture. I fell asleep thinking: ” I think it’s in Song of Solomon”.
In the morning I woke up early and grabbed my Bible and found the reference: (I could hardly believe how apt it was!)’

“Arise my darling, my beautiful one, and come along,
For behold, the winter is past and the rain is over and gone,
The flowers have already appeared in the land,
The time has arrived for the pruning of the vines,
And the voice of the Turtledove has been heard in our land
The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance”

Butterfly‘I immediately relayed this experience to my mum, and she in turn shared it at her prayer group. ONE of the members of the prayer group got in touch the very next day to say that whilst she was telling her husband about my experience, a butterfly flew into her conservatory and remained there all afternoon.’ (As shown.)

Also, that sister in the Lord had received an exceptionally helpful quotation of the Song of Solomon (The Passion Translation). Angela continues:

‘I know this is a long story but I am convinced that God is going to do this! Listen out for reports over the next few years of an increase in butterflies and birds! And keep praying/declaring that Britain will be freed from the entangling branches of the EU. I believe He will restore the years the locusts have eaten and Great Britain will once again flourish in abundance!’

Yesterday, seeking Angela’s permission to publish I told her the other incoming email has a new prophetic word on Britain and which confirms what she’s saying! 

Meanwhile, today’s inspiration from Glasgow Prophetic Centre re-affirms both visions:

God’s Glory In Everything – Lion Bites Tues 26th July

Don’t wait for the rare and mighty explosions of power but see that my power is manifest all around you! It is not only in the mighty signs that you will find me but my power and glory is in manifest in you and all around you.

Let me open your eyes to see the wonder in every moment today, the intricacies of life that surround you. When you really look you will see the glory that I have deposited in other people. Also, notice my glory in the food that grows and finds itself to your table, rejoice in the glory that is revealed by the sun rising every day and in the wild flowers by the road side.

Be still, open your heart, allow me to reveal my glory – not just in the explosions but even in the gentlest of ways.

Psalm 19:1 – The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. 

Upwelling spiritual water from unblocked wells in UK

Flying puzzles - Nokhoog BuchachonLike snowflakes three more pieces of the ‘invisible jigsaw’ gently waft down, yet remain unsuspected. They’re noticed only when they settle and although single, sit side-by side as though fitting like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

Saturday: Dominic McDermott commented as follows on the re-post of Patsy Southway, Re-opening the Wells:

‘I have heard “unblock the wells!” a number of times from the Lord over the years but recently especially in relation to the Celtic anointing that he poured on these British Isles around 1700 years ago. We are a small lay community in the Catholic church looking to express some Celtic elements of our spirituality. I work/minister in a prison and a few years ago on a lawn there God had spoken about some new grass shoots springing up which will become a whole lawn of new things in the land, but these shoots had in reality only grown poorly through lack of water.

‘Then on 6/10/15 the grass there began to spring up tall and lush as an underground pipe had burst under the lawn and watered it and ran off down the hill as a stream down the road up to the prison. The Lord called me to go and look at this leak as contractors had dug a hole to expose the pipe so it could be mended. What I saw was a 1.5 metre deep hole which was now a pool of crystal clear water roiling slightly in the centre over the hole in the pipe. The water had washed away all the dirty water and continued to flow down the hill.

‘I understood that this represents the Celtic anointing which had been poured out to evangelise these once pagan islands and which has been buried for centuries but is now being released for us again now that the land has returned to a new pagan darkness. This clear and fresh revelation and anointing will see many new communities spring up with a Celtic spirituality, with an understanding and wisdom coming from the north of England where this anointing has first been released as the Upper Springs and we as the Nether (lower) springs (Judges 1/14-15) and will spread quickly into Europe as a source of revival of the ancient and dying churches.’

This is particularly interesting in view of a dream signifying a connection between the ancient Celtic foundations of the church across Britain and a renewal of belief within traditional churches (Confirmation of 2016’s Prophetic Words for a New Season).

Sunday: Arriving late by agreement from a pre-arranged event we quietly enter the chapel where holy communion and anointing of celebrants is taking place. It is no normal service but part of a weekend course exploring Christian healing, thus training some for this foundation’s ministry team. The Holy Spirit’s powerful presence can be sensed right away – and I almost see the presence of some holy witnesses from time immemorial. I’m reminded of when we visited the lower chapel of St Basil (‘The Great’ 4th Century Cappadocian Father and doctor of the Church) in Basilica of the Holy Blood in Bruges and I almost went back centuries to Jerusalem; Nina wept in the power from centuries of prayer vigils focussed upon The Passion.)

Monday: From Glasgow I receive today’s Lion Bite!:

SPRINGS OF LIFE

‘I am releasing my springs of life in the dry place. Where you sought to establish my kingdom and have dug a well in a desolate place, but have found rock instead of water and death instead of life, I am now causing my springs of life to bubble up and begin to overflow in these wells.

‘With my springs of life will come abundance and blessings and you will see breakthrough. My kingdom will be established in these formerly desolate places. Watch and see as my grace begins to overflow and see my glory abound more than you had ever hoped for. Blessed are you that dug deep in my name, your faithfulness shall be rewarded.’

Isaiah 44:3
For I will pour out water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry place; I will pour out my spirit upon your offspring and my blessings on your descendants.

NB: in my opinion, timing and similarity of topics between both words, as well as the resonance between the contrasts stressed, clearly indicates the Lord’s drawing our attention to what He’s saying and doing.

In particular, Dominic’s encouraging insight contrasts with prison authorities’ outrageous censorship of minister Barry Trayhorn’s biblical teaching within a prison chapel AND of BBC’s wicked slandering of scripture and scandalously reprehensible treatment of Revd Trayhorn, as reported here by Christian Concern.
