Encouraging revival news from Capitol Hill, Washington DC

US CapitolHighly encouraging news of spiritual developments in Washington DC was brought during yesterday’s service at Church of His Presence. Revd John Kilpatrick expressed pleasure at hearing a president-elect wishing ‘Merry Christmas’ but dismay over ACLU filing a law suite against a football coach and school county for his praying with his team!

In the archived video at 46 mins mark, listen to John as he reports,

JohnK 214_logo“…It’s amazing when you see how divided the nation is…but I tell you what I’m believing for in the next four years – not because of the President-elect – but I’m believing because we’re now beginning to show signs of turning to God and I’m believing for revival to come to America. Can you shout ‘Amen’?

“…I know a fine young man, I believe has the potential one day to be another Nathan Morris (worldwide English evangelist).

“I was put in contact with him recently…on the telephone…it was exciting talking to him because he was saying, ‘You’ve been my pastor for all these many years, you didn’t even know it, you’ve been my mentor and I was part of the Brownsville Revival’.

“So now he’s working in Washington DC, right on Capitol Hill and so the other day they invited him – well they didn’t really invite him, they demanded him! – because the chaplain couldn’t be there that morning and they had no-one to begin the session in prayer, in Congress.

“So they looked around and couldn’t find anybody and came to him and said, ‘You’re going to lead us in prayer this morning!’ He said, ‘I can’t!’  They said, ‘You’re a minister aren’t you?’ – he said ‘Yes’, so they said, ‘Do what you do!’ – he said, ‘Oh, oh!’.

So he got up there and led in prayer and the Spirit of God fell!

“And he left the podium and went out in Congress and he started praying for the Congress people – and he prayed for Nancy Pelosi…Tears started running down her face and she said, ‘I believe you’re the real deal!’…so how many of you can (now) believe with me for revival for America?”

If you have time, continue watching John briefly speak about ancient wells of revival being opened and then giving words of knowledge Holy Spirit had given him at 5am for a couple of people, whilst blessing the congregation prior to giving their offering.

[Nancy Pelosi is Democratic Party minority leader in the House of Representatives and regarded by many as the most powerful woman in America.]

A linkage between Awakening in the UK and in the USA

Hitch-hiker and author of High Plains Drifter, Tim Shey, opens his comment on Prophetic words on Great Britain as sports-superpower, as follows:

‘I was reading the Psalms the other day and in Psalm 103: 31 it is written:“And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.”

‘I thought about Great Britain when I read that scripture. Look at all the saints that died preaching the Gospel in Britain and the ones who died translating the Bible into English. Look at what happened in England during the 1600s: the King James Bible, the English Civil War, the Glorious Revolution: these greatly influenced the formation of the United States and other nations. The Lord will never forget Great Britain. The most influential language on the planet is English.’

With that in mind, note how appropriate that is for what we were to hear later that Monday evening whilst watching the recently delivered dvds from Legacy 2016.  I wanted to check the full content of Lydia Marrow’s address that I’d blogged about the previous week.

Therefore, let’s consider what followed after the powerful prophecy delivered under Holy Spirit’s anointing on 2nd July. Lydia’s ‘topping and tailing’ of it gives some background to her great excitement!

After Nathan Morris speaks about the vision of Shake The Nations he hands the mike to Lydia to introduce herself and her role in STN and she says:

“I used to be shy – I used to hide behind the pews in my dad’s church and when Jesus set me free in the Brownsville Revival I got up and I was a different person. I lost my ‘normal’ – my ‘normal’ died in the carpet in Pensacola, Florida – so please don’t try to resurrect it!

“I know I’m supposed to do another thing but I feel like an explosion – would it be alright if I prophesied now, ok? I feel like I’m about to blow up y’all.”  [Reader, if you’ve not yet run seen this very brief video now’s the time to do so – Full transcript here.]

Immediately after declaring “The British are coming!” Lydia encourages everyone to stand, pray and praise for a minute…closing with, “I feel better for that – d’y’all feel better?”

“I refuse to be bored in church and this pastor’s daughter decided a long time ago: I refuse to be bored in church – if we’re not going to meet with God let’s go home!

“It’s just such an honour to be here. In case you’re wondering why I’m so passionate about God pouring His Spirit in the UK, history tells us that the United Kingdom and the United States do not have Awakening apart from one another! (emphasis added)

“You’ve got to break through! We need it too! In fact, it seems to me that lately our nations are all shook up…I felt so much better when I got here and everyone started resigning. Thank God we’re not the only crazy people!

“We’ve got to have a move of God…I don’t know if you know it but there’s no ‘Plan B’!  We don’t have a better idea – there’s no comfort zone to have anymore. We’ve got to have a move of God.

“You know, and I believe – and you’ve seen it in these services – there comes a moment in each service when you’ve got this option to do what your idea was, or to cooperate with the Holy Ghost…There’s a cooperation with the Holy Spirit that comes, and when we choose to say “Yes” to that – when you choose to lock into that – everything changes.”

Each time we watch her delivering this prophecy the Holy Spirit confirms its authenticity by sparking within us, as when He ‘struck’ during Trooping of the Colour.  If this sort of ‘event’ is new to you then please consider the introductory remarks of that link.

[Continuing writing 5 days later after long Bank Holiday Weekend…]

Long-time readers may have noticed an increase in my blogging about a spiritual linkage between the UK and USA, especially regarding words delivered under the Holy Spirit’s unction. These got tagged Bridge Over The Pond. So I’m now skimming through these to add a couple more items to the suggested reading list below.

I find the very first blog on this topic may itself be especially significant – it’s Get Ready… and refers to historic Paul Revere’s Ride.  [Even typing that brings up ‘goose bumps’!  And maybe it’s in conjunction with Kenny Peavy and band singing Holy, Holy Is The Lord Our God!!]

WOW – how can I share what’s coming in this timing? I’m reminded of Lydia prophesying, “The Redcoats are coming. The British are coming!” – reputedly Paul Revere’s alarm call to fellow colonialists in Massachusetts as he and two others rode from Boston on the night of 18th April 1775.

But today those words are are spiritual alarm call to the new Awakening!

And this ‘God-incidence’ brings a download of insights into a dream of almost 5 years ago when I saw and heard “The Kingdom is being set up”. That was the same day Bill Johnson prophesied that weekend in Sept 2011 may be regarded as a turning point in the UK (see Father Let Your Kingdom Come.)  A preparatory report of 2010 to that Revival Alliance Gathering referred to the relevance of that ‘ride’ but this is no longer available on the web.

I can but conclude, therefore, a great deal is happening in the heavenlies to bring about a massive shift within our historically linked nations. Ours has already begun…

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.

New Britain: spiritual rains have started in UK

Some prophetic material on the EU-Referendum needs to be noted. A scripture published by Simon Braker relates directly to Nathan Morris’ emphasis and call for ‘Rainmakers’ at last week’s Shake The Nations Legacy conference in Peterborough. (Nathan has been evangelising overseas for some years and felt led to return here. In arranging the event last year he wasn’t aware of its conjunction with national events – nor its coincidence with the conference city’s Heritage Weekend.)

Simon posted this on 6th June on facebook’s School of the Spirit Leicester:

Over the last few weeks I’ve had the account of the fist-sized cloud from 1 Kings 18 going round in my spirit:
I sense the Lord saying –
How big does the cloud need to be before my people will move?
Those who have ears hear!
The rains have began and will even increase but only for those who take to running with my Spirit, for in this season my coming will be manifest in your going!
As you go with what you have I will bring increase, for many have adopted what looks like a position of prayer but in truth it is a position of fear and hiding,
The harvest has already began the breakthrough has already started the first drops of rain have already began to fall and soften hard hearts,
Watch and see if I do not bless you in your going, the time of waiting is over, the time of harvest has started,
Now is your time,
For as confusion increases in the world I will break loose here in these lands,
Once again these lands will be restored to the missional apostolic mandate,
A fresh move of my Spirit has started it will be defined not through conferences and gatherings but through church planting and sending!

Personal Note:

During EU-Referendum week I repeatedly played ‘Let It Rain’, led by Kenny Peavy and band at Harvest Rock Church (part of which is below). This opens an hour and half of powerful, yet mostly impromptu, worship from Los Angles during the Lakeland Outpouring (2008).

Then on the morning of ‘Independence Day UK’ (23rd June) torrential rains hit southern and various parts of England!

Therefore, it was terrific to find that song featured even more dynamically in Peterborough last week during worship at Legacy 2016. Additionally, I was blessed by a better sense of how a recent personal vision is related to the harvest in the above prophetic word.

Most appropriately for leading into the EU-Referendum Kenny’s next song is “I Am Free!”, which isn’t listed in YouTube but join them petitioning the Lord to Purify My Heart (so I may see Your Face) which continues into Set me on Fire.  As the band burns for Him and plead Send Your Glory, Send Your Fire… they reverently worship Holy Holy is the Lord our God.

Shake the Nations – Legacy Conference, Peterborough 30 June – 2 July

TITLEvidnewD-1024x597

Shake The Nations Ministries (image links to website)

STN ministries, known for evangelism plus healing to masses around the world – as well as its close association with The Bay of The Holy Spirit Revival (see intro email and blogs) – invites Christians to:

LEGACY CONFERENCE 2016

‘…The first annual Shake the Nations Ministries conference with a clear call for the Church to return to the fires of Pentecost.

‘We must build on the legacy of our forefathers such as Smith Wigglesworth, The Jeffrey brothers, John and Charles Wesley, and Evan Roberts. This generation must seek God for a move of the Holy Spirit, that the lost might be saved, the sick healed, and the captives set free in Jesus’ mighty name!

Fulfilled prophecy #4 – Paris pays price, but NOT due to…

…French military action in Syria against ISIS, as claimed by barbarian murderers to ‘justify’ their attacks a week ago last night!

Eiffel Tower Nov2015

La Tour Eiffel (Reuters: Charles Platiau)

NO!  Several prime verses of scripture and recent prophetical insights reveal the reason for citizens’ vulnerability in Paris as being their government’s hostile actions against the Jewish state of Israel.

One consequence of acting contrary to the Lord’s directives is the lack of His protective blessing! That is, unfortunately for the French they don’t appear to be in His favour.

Our hearts go out to all those grieving over those outrages. Yet we should always be aware of the ‘law’ of sowing and reaping as revealed in the earliest Christian letter:

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7-8 NIV)

12088559_173822729626723_341351036044988314_nMost saddening, however, is the fact that one of the songs joined in by attendees at the Bataclan concert was blatant satan worship! Eagles of Death Metal played their ‘kiss the devil’ (song lyrics) > then many dozens of souls went down into his dark domain! Harsh words in a tragedy, but I write from personal knowledge. In 1989 it nearly happened to me during a near-death experience, but I was most blessed to be Rescued from Hell. Therefore, I am most grieved they’re paying the price of having put their souls in grave peril. (See comments below and press press report – and Lightning-Bolt Tinted Glasses gives much food for thought!) Update Jan’16: this video shows what true worship is like.

Prophetic Words of 2012-15

Neville_Johnson-311x350A week ago this morning I saw headlines about this year’s second atrocity in Paris, and one of which I realised connected directly into its true cause. More about that later for I immediately recalled what Neville Johnson said last year in Urgent prophetic words about a cut-off date in God’s timeline:

“There is a definite cut-off point that is going to happen. A lot of things have been held up because God in His mercy has waited and waited and waited…and God has given us more time and more time. But he spoke to me,

“Neville, it is over. There is no more extension of time!”

In August last (2015), Neville reminded us that extension of time will end in September, “Time has run out” (see Last blood moon ushers in new era).

In 2014 Neville revealed he’d had more encounters with the Lord than in any previous year. “Things have become critical. It is the season of change”. In particular he shared,

“…we are on the brink of something great and something terrible. Time is running out for us and we have to be prepared for what is coming, particularly this nation (USA), but there are ramifications for other nations around the world as well. We are on the brink of something great…” (emphasis added).

He divulged several things the Lord had given him, one of which in my humble opinion relates directly to last week’s atrocity (textual format reflects vocal emphases):

“THE ISSUE OF SOWING AND REAPING IS BECOMING CRITICAL. Everything is speeding up. The process of sowing and reaping is being shortened over recent times; scary, because we don’t always sow the right things and it is coming back quicker.”

SC-Pic3 nathan morrisWhilst writing I’m reminded of a strongly anointed word given within weeks of launching this blog. On 6th January 2012 evangelist Nathan Morris told how the Lord had spoken to him with Holy Spirit strongly impressing upon him that such will be the unfolding of global events in 2012 – and in days that lie ahead – that  fear will strike the hearts of men; ever-increasing unrest and a spirit of confusion shall be released upon the world, uncertainty and hopelessness will even grip the hearts of believers.

This exceptionally anointed prophetic word begins as follows:

“For lawlessness will abound as nations and their leaders meet together to try and make alliances dnd allegiances one with another.  They shall seek peace, but shall not find it –  they shall seek peace, but shall not find it! This will cause many to cry from the rooftops for resolution but it will still elude them, for a time for further unrest will be their reward. 
“For even in 2012 there shall be great events that will change the course of this world, as you know it! For as many pour out their resources to find solutions of peace, another crisis will drain them of knowledge and resolution.

For I would know that My people would hear My voice, that I am setting the stage for that which I have foretold in My Word and it will quickly and swiftly come to pass. For the days are coming when the lawless one shall be revealed and the son of perdition shall take his stand…” (Setting the stage for the End-times at 2:23:30).

Neville Johnson on France

At this year’s conference in Lancaster USA, Neville referred to France being judged, but I deemed it wiser not to repeat his remarks. He mentioned Dickens’ classic ‘A Tale of Two Cities‘ and compared the fate of London with that of Paris and noted the author’s prophetic contrasting of extreme opposites. This applies today too as, “The tale of two kingdoms: light and darkness”. (If you haven’t yet seen that video then now’s definitely the time! My reference is at 32 minutes.)

Neville spoke of France’s poor future being a consequence of the way it persecuted the Huguenots. He could also have mentioned the post-Revolution republic’s secular stance against scripture. Today’s president, Francois Hollande, is an avowed atheist although he was raised as Catholic (Quartz: These are the religious beliefs of Europe’s leaders).

That fact possibly provides the ‘raison d’etre’ to his official policies towards Israel.

(This is quite clear from the detailed content accompanying that other headline I saw a week ago this morning.  In the midst of several on last Saturday’s Koenig’s World Watch Daily I noticed ‘France’s war against Jews – Caroline Glick’.  I will cover this in part two of this post.)

The relevance of Neville’s remarks are corroborated by the in-depth report of ‘Francois X’ in the discussion thread of Nelson Walters’ Paris is just the beginning

‘You write: “If they were reading and understanding their Bibles they would know that Paris is just the beginning”.

Unfortunately, very few people in France read their Bible. Since the French revolution in the late 18th century, France has been, a secular country. The Elohim of the Bible is not part of the French scene anymore. This is very unfortunate, and what we are experiencing, and I fully agree with you, it is just the beginning, is mainly due to our nation rejecting Yahweh…’

(15.12.15) For more from France read No Surrender This Time by French journalist and public intellectual Michel Gurfinkiel. Editor-in-chief of Valeurs Actuelles from 1985-2006, he’s written several books on geopolitics, international relations and culture. He is the Founder and President of the Jean-Jacques Rousseau Institute, a conservative think-tank, and a Shillman/Ginsburg Fellow at the Middle East Forum.

What’s prophetic about contending for The faith?

Phil_4-13

Will you stand and contend with me?

Being contentious may seem un-Christian and contrary to Jesus’ command to love and forgive not only one another but also our enemies, to turn the other cheek when wrongly accused, as well as to avoid judging and condemning others.

However, the opening lines of the letter penned by Jesus’ brother Jude is foundational to Nathan Morris’ message wherein the Lord had told him, “Contend, don’t pretend!”. If any of this is stirring within your spirit then you may like encouragement from watching his fiery message in full on this archive (from 98 mins, starts 107 mins).

Apostle Paul’s letters to his young associate Timothy included instructions for tackling false teaching and he gives the basis for this at 2 Tim 3:16-17. That is, that:

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Therefore, what Jude also wrote under inspiration is prophetic in ‘telling forth’ that the Lord is exhorting His people,

to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.  [See full NKJV text at Biblegateway.com]

We note from these words how applicable they are today too. What the Lord is saying through Nathan shows the situation is no different to 2,000 years ago. What he teaches is indeed prophetic, as were the instructive warnings for 2012. This time he outlined the  lessons to be gained from the example of the Shunammite lady’s assistance to prophet Elisha (2 Kings 4).

[Note: I added a little about that to my extracts transcript. Also, apologies to anyone who found the links in previous post failed. Sometimes my ISP filtering may drop connection when editing – HA!HA! Now in checking those links whilst drafting this I see the v latest on Nathan’s Facebook is an open Bible quoting 2 Timothy3:16 !  So it would appear that THE LORD IS CONFIRMING this issue! Drafting was done last week.]

A few Biblical examples

Being contentious comes with the territory for Old Covenant prophets in calling God’s people to repentance; that is, it’s a life-style. I need only to cite the lives of the major prophets Jeremiah and Isaiah, plus John the Baptist’s denunciation of Pharisees as a “brood of vipers”. And Jesus was definitely contentious, especially when dealing with Satan; whose minions recognise Jesus’ identity as ‘the Holy One of God’ (Mark 1:24).

Also, this One of ultimate authority said the Jews of His day had failed to change after being warned by Isaiah, whom JHe quoted when explaining why the mysteries of the Kingdom were being given to His disciples only – no-one else was worthy!  As Matthew 13:10 goes on to note Isaiah 6 verses 9-10:

“And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”.

He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:

‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not perceive;
For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.’

“But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it. “

SO it is with atheists, whose hearts and minds are firmly encased in concrete and spirits not allowed to function. As demonstrated only today in ‘dialogue’, they have absolutely no grasp of spiritual matters and demonstrate intense bigotry in deriding our knowledge. As ‘walking dead’ they’re most pitiable in refusing the freedom Jesus bought for them!  Although denying you Lord, bless them with personal revelatory encounters so they may understand Your kindness, mercy and grace and sincerely repent. You did that for me Lord, so may they be similarly blessed.

A Call to ‘Stand’!

In a shocking open-vision of Britain being ripped apart, because the fabric of society is so rotten, I understood Christians are to stand upon the emerging Rock – for details see remarks accompanying Dr Stone’s Comments upon the collapse of Society.

Hence my appreciation of Gillan Scott’s outstanding work on his leading blog, God and Politics in the UK, as well as that of at least a couple of my readers. I started blogging about the same time as Gillan and have contributed my tu’pence worth many times in comments threads, as has one of your fellow UK subscribers. Another out in the States, has bravely withstood attacks against her own blog by worshippers of atheism.  Bravo, my friends!

In online discussions I’ve often stated unbelievers should find out for themselves by seeking an encounter with Jesus. Thus it was good to learn about Justin Welby’s own encounter on Gillan’s blog and, as in mine, that Nathan Morris had also stressed from his experience as an evangelist, “…You can’t persuade people into the Kingdom. They must have an encounter with Jesus!”

Therefore, those who share my concern over the deep religious illiteracy and hostility to Christianity, may like to consider contending actively in online discussions whenever the Lord so leads. If you’re so disposed, and time permitting, you may care to get a feel for this by dipping into some of Gillan’s recent posts and signing up to receive new posts upon his return from Summer break.

As well as loving patience and ‘thick skin’, a good grasp of scripture is required because some brethren write with a distorted doctrine and, although knowledgeable, others can be judgemental of adherents of ‘Sola Scripture’ – scripture alone. As this is in the public domain it is essential to correct with kindness thus avoiding confrontation.

In closing, only this morning I have an email about Franklin Graham’s call to Christians to battle culture; to stand for God and Biblical values despite social opposition.

Time to don our spiritual armour, as instructed by Paul (Ephesians 6:10-17 NIV):

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For 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.  Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Plymouth Celebration points to prophetic promises

Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James,

To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ:

Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

Contend for the Faith

Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. [NKJV per BibleGateway.com – emphases RB]

It’s been too long since the exciting time when Nathan Morris ministered in Hull (report) and our watching the Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival nightly. (For brief reports of healing read Video Clips of Testimonies.) The ‘fire in his bones’ makes him a highly charged preacher passionate for Jesus. Whilst the power of the Holy Spirit ministers through him he gets drenched in sweat!

Note my following transcription of his message uses various type founts to try to convey Nathan’s passion and flow whilst speaking.

For those unfamiliar with this British Evangelist and wanting some details, please see ‘Background‘ sub-head in Prophetic word 2012: setting the stage for the End-Times.

Click above photo for Nathan’s Facebook page with photos and comments on the Summer Celebration in Plymouth.

The first evening he taught about landmarks and boundaries of the Christian faith which churches are unwisely moving, thus giving room for the enemy of our souls to advance. The topic for the third and closing evening was fire and anointing. When speaking of God’s power his iPad lost its power, which he took as an indication for preachers to not use well-prepared notes but rely instead on Holy Spirit’s leading and inspiration – which  Nathan certainly did.

Extracts from the middle evening follow below. In my opinion, what Nathan delivered is in harmony with what the Lord is indicating as now necessary for the awakening giant to stand on his feet, as mused about in the last post.:

CONTEND, DON’T PRETEND!

“A couple of weeks ago the Lord gave me the title for tonight, it’s just a simple phrase: CONTEND, DON’T PRETEND….Contend; Don’t Pretend!

“I read to you this verse in Jude (above) where there comes this cry from the heart of God, this cry from the Holy Spirit, that says to a generation: in these last days I’m calling a people that will not lay down and accept the norm but they will contend for the Word of God in their lives.

“They will contend for something greater than themselves. We are living in a generation today that is literally watching the final chapters of the Ages come to pass!  How can you watch the news today and NOT SEE that every word that Jesus Christ spoke is coming to pass. This is IT!

“Church, nations – THIS IS IT! Jesus said in the last days there will be wars and rumours of wars – nation will rise against nation – there will be pestilence and famine in nations around the world – and the love of MANY will grow cold…the LOVE of MANY will grow cold.

“And yet in the darkest of hours – in an hour when many will run with fear, or tremble – the superpowers of this world are ALREADY trembling because they HAVE NO ANSWER.

“Jesus said that the world, the nations, it will be like a woman in labour, there literally will be times when they will CRAVE, they will desire the Coming of the Lord – THIS IS IT!

“What you’re seeing in Israel…what you’re seeing in Russia and in the Ukraine…across Europe. Something is beginning to rise that NO NATION, NO GOVERNMENT, CAN STOP!

“THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THE WORD OF GOD HAS PROPHESIED WILL BE THE SIGNS –THESE WILL BE THE SIGNS OF THE COMING OF JESUS CHRIST…He will stand AS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

“I spoke to you last night, Jesus died and rose again. He shed His blood that you might have a hope…you are CHOSEN.

“I CAN’T SAY THAT ENOUGH TO THIS GENERATION, to those who are watching me now that YOU’RE SEARCHING IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES FOR YOUR IDENTITY. Your identity is found in Jesus! He knew you before you were in your mother’s womb. He purposed you, He destined you – He spoke LIFE into your being.

“When you know that you’re Chosen, when you know that God has purpose for your life you realise there’s something that God is doing in your life that is greater than you are – something that’s greater than your own dreams – something that’s greater than a promotion. You know what, I thank God for blessing these people, but I’m TIRED of preachers telling the Body of Christ that a measure of their faith is whether they have a mansion or a Ferrari.

“What really matters is this: Is the life that you’re living COUNTING FOR ETERNITY? Is what you live for, breathe for and you’re willing to die for, going to count for eternity?

“You see what’s happening in this nation and in America right now – I preached to you last night…the hedge, the line of separation (between righteousness and the world) is being removed. MORALITY IS BEING BLURRED. I see across the Body of Christ as I travel around the world THERE’S A CONFUSION because SUDDENLY THERE ARE THINGS HAPPENING – even in the Church – that people say,“I DON’T KNOW…I THOUGHT THAT WAS AGAINST THE WORD OF GOD!”

“But there’s this generation that arises and says, “No, that’s ok..You don’t have to give your all…you go to church, you sing songs but you can have your own sinful life-style. Live how you want to live…Jesus loves you!

“Well my friend, THAT’S NOT THE GOSPEL because JESUS GAVE HIS ALL, HE PAID THE PRICE WITH HIS LIFE – He gave His ALL and He DEMANDS NOTHING LESS FROM YOU!

“He said, “If you give ME your LIFE I’ll come and live INSIDE YOU. ALL THAT I AM, I will be IN YOU!”

“There’s a generation today – we need the FIRE OF GOD TO FALL UPON THE UNITED KINGDOM AGAIN – we need THE FEAR OF THE LORD TO RISE IN US AGAIN..!  (Loud cheers across packed auditorium!)

“I talk to young people, I start talking to them about the fire of God – I say to young guys, ‘Listen, when the fire of God fell on me it RADICALLY CHANGED ME!’ – You see we want a notebook with 8 steps of ‘how to’…but I’m not that kind of preacher…I just had AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS…the power of God took a hold of my life!

“I talk to them about the power and the glory of God. Oh, I’ve seen the glory of God come down like a mist. I’ve watched people paralyzed get out of wheelchairs – the blind see, the deaf hear…I’ve watched as thousands are touched by the fire of the holy Ghost and I SEE A GENERATION LOOKING AT ME AS THOUGH I JUST FELL OFF MARS!! Staring at me as ‘THIS GUY’S CRAZY!’

“What I began to realise is this: THERE’S A GENERATION TODAY COMING UP THAT KNOW NOTHING OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD – THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE FIRE OF GOD – THEY DON’T KNOW there’s something SO AWESOME AVAILABLE THAT CAN EMPOWER THEIR LIVES TO CHANGE THE DESTINY OF A GENERATION.

“But we don’t want to contend any more…

“I want to speak to the United Kingdom for a moment. I was born here, I was raised here and I want to say that I love the Church. I love the people of God…but I’m an evangelist. I want to see the lost saved…and the thing is this – you CAN’T PERSUADE people into the Kingdom..THEY MUST HAVE AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS.

“WHEN THEY ENCOUNTER THE PRESENCE OF GOD THEY ARE CHANGED!

“But it’s like we don’t want to FIGHT for the things of the Spirit of God ANY MORE – we’d rather have a nice service with nice presentation, but just NO FIRE.  Well I’m telling you right now there’s something the Holy Spirit’s placing in my heart,

“It’s time to contend. Time to contend for the Glory of God to FILL our churches, to fill our lives that we might know Him in Whom we have believed!”

Nathan goes on to teach from 2 Kings 4 on the Shunammite woman providing a room for the itinerant prophet Elisha and her faith in the supernatural provision of God being vindicated. She knew despite having been barren and then her boy unexpectedly dying, that ‘all was well’! – indomitable faith had developed because she made room for a man of God and her prayers had been answered.

Nathan tells how, despite having been into drugs, he was saved and filled with holy fire. Then going to church and having read the Bible and about miracles, he realised there was something inside him that made him passionately want to see it happen today. He realised he had to contend for this – not like 1/2 hour ‘fast-food’ Christianity.

“But I learnt I had to abide,. If you want an encounter with God you can’t quit too soon. You’ve got to know what it is to CONTEND, to cry out to God…”I’m here, I’m waiting for You.” He then gives a reminder and word for a viewer who had a prophecy over his life.

“IT’S NOT TIME TO PRETEND BUT TIME TO CONTEND – OUR GENERATION ARE IN THE BALANCE!!

“That’s why I like what Canon Andrew White said. He spoke about suffering and fighting – contending for the faith. YOU CAN’T CONTEND IF YOU WANT TO PRETEND!

“The days of pretending are coming to an end. The days are going to become SO DARK that if you DON’T HAVE THE LIGHT OF HIS GLORY in your life YOU’RE IN TROUBLE!”

On Repentance

“You know why people are against me so much on repentance? It’s because repentance MAKES ROOM FOR GRACE! The devil hates it because the devil knows that if a man responds and says, “Jesus, you have my life, I’ll make room for you. Come and dwell inside”, then he’s in trouble.

“AND I WANT TO SAY THE SAME TO THE CHURCH. People think my ministry’s just about miracles. NO, there’s a message that goes with the miracle – the message is: ‘JESUS DEMANDS YOUR ALL! YOUR LIFE, EVERYTHING YOU HAVE’. And when you make room for Him HE WILL BREAK EVERY CHAIN, every bondage, He’ll wash you, cleanse you – HE WILL SET YOU FREE!

The Problem

“The problem is, when you’ve never encountered the glory of God you don’t even know what I’m talking about ‘cos if you try to understand God in a natural place of your own understanding…one thing God’s got to get His Church to – to get you to – is to a place where you understand that what He wants to do in you is SO GREATER THAN WHAT YOU THINK and who you think you are.

“IT’S SO SUPERNATURAL, IT IS ONLY BY HIS GRACE, HIS PROVISION – HIS POWER, HIS GLORY IN YOUR LIFE – THAT YOU’RE EVER GOING TO MAKE IT.

“You’ve got to look at something that the world says is impossible, that the CHURCH EVEN SAYS IT’S IMPOSSIBLE, and (say) “NO, in Jesus’ name – it IS well”.”

The United Kingdom

“We’re believing God that something will be sparked in these 3 days…I believe God has something for the United Kingdom that is SO AWESOME that the nations will take notice.”

During the Celebration’s final evening one of the many receiving ministry was a severely deaf boy who was then able to hear. Thank you Lord for this and all the healing you are doing. Later, Nathan closed in farewell,

“We’re believing for God to move in our generation in what you’ve seen these last three nights…Can you imagine if the Body of Christ let the Spirit of God move? Not wanting the fake or the strange, but wanting JESUS to be GLORIFIED.

And when you glorify Jesus, young boys who are deaf leave this place hearing, because THAT is the message of the Gospel in the United Kingdom to the nations of the world…”


Hallelujah!  More happened than shown on the videos, as reported on Facebook.

Paws 4 thought: ‘coincidence’ points to a coming revival?

DSC_0210-1edMulling over Saturday’s post regarding Plymouth and how ideas popped into mind, then later upon catching up with GodTV celebrations, I believe my spirit may be sensing a modern prophecy is coming into fulfilment. It’s serendipity yet again. (For a brief introduction to this Biblical principle see In the right place at the right time.)

In Winnipeg, Canada, 53 three years ago this Friday, Tommy Hicks had hardy fallen asleep when,

…the vision and the revelation that God gave to me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail

I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation, that this has changed my complete outlook upon the Body of Christ, and upon the last end-time ministry.

The greatest thing that the Church of Jesus Christ – that has ever been given to the Church – lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give to His people in the end-time. (Emphases added)

If you’ve not yet followed the link I provided, visit Colin Winfield’s web-page and then his link to the pdf version of Tommy Hicks’ Vision. It is a most remarkable insight into the preparation of the unblemished Bride of Christ for the ‘great tribulation’. Colin comments upon testing its conformity with Scripture, and I cannot but ask if this scenario includes a cleansed, revived Anglican church, possibly as prophesied here?

I am truly humbled by this account being thrust to my attention separately by two sisters in Christ who have the same name, albeit spelt differently.  The first L was mentioned in my musing upon the spiritual significance of Plymouth; ie, her vision of a giant bore a  resemblance to what Tommy had seen. Time constraints, however, didn’t allow me to revisit his vision before writing.

But what I didn’t know was one of my readers had already been directed to that vision!  Upon reading the blog on Plymouth this second L immediately responded she’d been praying on Thursday with her pastor,

…and I had brought my A1 board of Smith Wigglesworth’s (of) 1947, but as I am praying this out from where I believe we are, it ran into Tommy Hicks’ vision of the giant and the ordinary ditchdiggers and washerwomen – this has greatly encouraged me.  [See below for SW’s vision]

A huge thank you goes to both ladies, my sisters in God’s family.

Therefore, I cannot but conclude that the Lord is definitely drawing our attention to the deep importance of that vision. In view of other words about this ‘new season’ and the urgency to Advance the Kingdom now! then the time really is ‘now’!

A song of victory is in the air

At the Summer celebration Nathan preached strongly about maintaining our spiritual boundaries and ‘landmarks’ because the church has given ground to the demonic. The next day his message was on the need to ‘contend not pretend’ for the faith.

On this, today’s Lion Bites from Glasgow Prophetic Centre is highly apposite:

Song of Victory

There is a new song arising in the people of God, it is the war cry of conquered ground.

There have been many battles of the season over the same piece of ‘ground’. Many have wondered why the battle has been so long and why it has kept them from the greener pastures their eyes have seen.

Many have wondered and asked, ‘Why am I still here fighting the same battle?’

This has formed a useful training ground for the people of God and they have grown in faith, in endurance and in maturity. But it is now time for conquering and completion – and so the new song of conquered ground will arise.

The Lord is establishing secure boundaries for the ground that has been fought over. The Lord is placing His seal over areas of contention because His saints are transitioning now over the battle ground that has been won.

Will you sing your song of victory in faith today, in faith that the Lord is moving on your behalf and that the battle has been won?

Psalm 68:1
May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may His foes flee before him.

SO, let us note and weigh these things, and take action…

Footnotes

Smith Wigglesworth’s  Prophecy of major move of the Holy Spirit in Britain (1947).

  1. Two preliminary phases have already happened, so be prepared for the full move! Likewise for the word delivered 40 years later to David Minor in NW USA – Two winds coming to the Church.
  2. Further insights on this revelation was given to American evangelist, Lester Sumrall, “…I see the greatest revival in the history of mankind coming to planet Earth…every form of disease healed…”. (Revival Prophecies for the British Isles)
  3. In 1995 I was standing alongside SW’s prayer-partner Revd Norman James when he had a similar vision of UK that Wigglesworth had – he was left speechless!

SC-Pic1 andrew whiteVicar of St. George’s Church in Baghdad and president of The Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, Canon Andrew White works to provide spiritual home, medical care and humanitarian relief to the region while promoting reconciliation amongst Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the most dangerous areas of the world.

Before his 15 years in Baghdad, Andrew served as a mediator between Israel and the Palestinians. If you are unfamiliar with this exceptional servant of God take a moment to read Cranmer’s Canon White deserves a Knighthood, which opens as follows:

“He doesn’t care about temporal honours, of course. You only have to hear the ‘Vicar of Baghdad’ preach, or take a few minutes to watch the above short film (parts 2 and 3 to follow), to appreciate that the race he runs is for the crown of Christ’s glory, and the reward he awaits is in heaven. He doesn’t want a knighthood or a CBE: he wants our prayers, our awareness of the plight of his flock, and our generous donations to aid his ministry in this time of appalling suffering and tribulation.

“He has lost a thousand of his parishioners over the past year alone – murdered by Muslim militants; many of them summarily shot or beheaded. He has recently been speaking to numerous fellowships in the UK to raise awareness of the situation in Iraq, and he received death threats last week from ISIS/ISIL (or IS [Islamic State], as they now wish to be called)…”

[Cranmer concludes by saying he deserves a gallantry medal.]

SC-Pic3 nathan morrisFounder and President of Shake The Nations Ministries, Evangelist Nathan Morris has led Gospel crusades and witnessed the salvation of over 100,000 Muslims and Hindus, as well as, documented healings of the blind, deaf and crippled. Leading meetings for the Bay Revival in the United States, he saw thousand of salvations and hundreds of notable healings.

Several bear witness to this month’s prophetic word

Endless Bridge by Evgeni DenevChristians over in America as well as here in the UK have born witness to parts of the prophetic word received in Glasgow. So it wasn’t for Scotland only!  Another instance of what I call ‘a bridge over The Pond’?

Be further inspired by those responses as  below, the first two of which plus mine are at the foot of Advance the Kingdom now, the others are from the USA:

1. M writes, “This witnesses with me; I’m writing a summary today of two similar prophetic messages from speakers I’ve heard recently, with a similar urgency (both have a ‘wake up’ theme)” and he refers to a friend “who had to have the kingdom business he is setting up now functioning by 2016, otherwise it would be too late”.

2. L writes, “It has really witnessed to me…and encouraged me because there does seem a lot of mess and, after having retired from work where my main ministry was for the last 20 years, I can now look forward to the future with the hope that Father has put in my heart with another project which I am hoping I will be part of. Also to let go of those things which have either just come to a natural conclusion or just plain need to go”.

3. T writes from Tucson, Arizona, “Some of this word sounds like the puzzle vision that the Lord gave me. It also reminds me of a vision of a house church meeting in my house where people would come in with their armor on but as they came into my home they would take it off because they felt safe”.

[‘God-incidence’ featured in my first learning about Tony’s vision, and to which I referred in re-blogging his account in When we come together…the Body of Christ, which he revisited in more detail a few months later, as may be read here.]

4. T re-blogs with further remarks in connection with a dream akin to the dry bones of Ezekiel 37. His insights harmonise with what the Glasgow team heard and he adds, “The prophetic word posted by Richard is a continuation of the dream/vision that I had concerning the Lord’s heart for His people to be in relationship with Him and each other”.

Nathan 25. Meanwhile over in Mobile, Alabama, and doubtlessly knowing nothing of our matter in hand, English evangelist Nathan Morris has returned from mission trips to the Far East and to the Baltic States of Europe. Recounting the huge, amazing events filled with with miracles signs and wonders, he says,

This is the time. God said to me that this would be the year of the Open Door.

Doors are going to close around the world that will shock the world – but at the same time God’s going to open doors in the Kingdom that have not been open for us for many years (RB emphases).

This is the time to preach the Gospel without compromise, to believe God like never before so we can step into destiny…

We’re living in the days that it’s dark but this is the greatest moment for the Church of Jesus Christ. And I want to tell you that people say, “Europe is too dark, it’s over”. I want to tell you it ain’t over – it’s only just begun.

You know, people tell you “People, the nations, don’t want o hear the Gospel”, BUT when you preach the Gospel and thousands are filling the altars you realise the devil is a liar.

And I want to tell you America SHALL be saved and when we declare the mighty acts of God the Holy Spirit backs us up!

JohnK 214_logo6. Just prior to that, in the same service on Sunday, the congregation and pastor John Kilpatrick felt and responded to the presence of Holy Spirit during worship. Very excited,  John interrupted welcoming visitors to prophesy as follows,

Just get ready, because I’m telling you God’s about to do some awesome, awesome things.

Listen, that doesn’t preclude the fact that there’s going to be a lot of hell going on in the world.

There’s going to be a roller-coaster coming in the next 90 days, a roller-coaster ride where things are going to be whizzing by you – it’s just going to be going so fast you won’t hardly have chance to assimilate it – things are going to be happening suddenly.

But I tell you what, the Kingdom of God is getting ready to come into full view – it’s getting ready to come into full view and you just need to get ready for that!

And yes, there are going to be some bad, bad things happening in the world, but I’m telling you God is NOT going to forsake His people – His Church is going to shine brighter than you’ve ever seen the Church shine. I say that the Church will shine brighter than it’s ever shone before! And you just need to get ready for that!

So, in my humble opinion both exhortations enhance this month’s word.

Exciting times!

Miracle Reports #2013

Thank you for the update Jarrod, and it’s great to read David’s comments about his son’s amazing healing, which we were privileged to witness. (As reported here.)

20140102-145336.jpg

I’ve just been reading through the supernatural reports from 2011-2012 and found them so inspiring! So I’d thought I’d update you on just some of the remarkable things God has done in 2013, in around our community.

8 MINUTES OF MIRACLES!
Every year we have the privilege of hosting the Holy Spirit seminar stream at the 10,000 strong ONE Event in Lincolnshire (Check it out here if you’re interested in joining us!). After our seminar teaching we found ourselves with just 8 minutes to pray for the sick in one of our sessions – But what happened in those 8 minutes is nothing short of amazing!

One man whose foot had been in pain since 1974 was instantly healed! 6 deaf ears opened, tumours left several bodies, spines were realigned, cataracts disappeared and one woman got out of her wheelchair, as our our amazing team of youth prayed for…
