Cleansing and preparing for the Lord’s glory to visit Britain

Two very pertinent prophetical ponderings, courtesy of UK Prophetic Words posted 24th and 25th June respectively (editorial emphases mine):

I AM ABOUT TO MOVE IN GREAT BRITAIN AS NEVER BEFORE – CLEANSING & PREPARING FOR REVIVAL

There’s been a lot of comment about the cloud photo which appeared over Britain this week (as above). Allow me to give you my take on this:

At first I was quite amused by all the hype and, frankly, what I thought was foolish talk – until Holy Spirit nudged me. “And why can it not be from Me?”  He asked. “Do you not recall Elijah’s Cloud?” For a moment I thought He was pulling my leg but He added, “Not joking!”

So let me get this straight, a cloud that started on the horizon ‘as big as a man’s hand’ had now grown and taken on the shape of mainland Britain?

“Oh yes”, He said, “And it’s headed your way for a very good reason”. OK Lord, you’ve got my attention. This chat had suddenly gotten serious.

“Tell My people, I am sending the latter rain early because you are getting parched from hearing all the false and seriously gloomy news. There is a great need for a washing in My Spirit. That’s right, I am sending a WASHING IN MY SPIRIT in order to cleanse off the world’s dirt which is sticking to you!”

“The Cloud was sent as a warning to Great Britain that I am about to move as never before – cleansing and preparing for revival” said the Lord. “The cleansing will bring great realisation of the poor spiritual state of the nation. There will be much tearful repentance and restoration of almost forgotten callings and ministries. There will be a huge move among the young, and not so young, and an equipping for revival as never seen or recorded before.”

“Doesn’t My Word say that signs in the heavens will appear before you? Haven’t My servants the prophets warned you of this? The time has come for a national awakening such as never seen before nor even imagined. I have spoken. Is not My Word good? Has My Word ever fallen to the ground? Have you not prayed for this day and have I not now answered?”

“I am the Lord. Listen when I speak, and watch for My signs and wonders. I AM SENDING ALL THAT YOU HAVE ASKED FOR AND MORE – MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER THINK OR IMAGINE!”

Chris Bennett, 18th June’17

PREPARE YOUR HEARTS FOR A VISITATION OF MY GLORY

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord” – We all are familiar with the wonderful old hymn by Julia Ward Howe that starts with this line.

I was reminded of this when I sat, as I often do, just listening to whatever the Lord wanted to say to me. He brought these words to mind. Before I could ask the question, the Lord answered,

“I am about to bring my Shekinah glory into your meetings. I will bring the cloud of my presence before you. The few times I have done this before, my people have fallen on their faces before me. This time, I will cause one or two to stand up again. They will shine before you as Moses did when he came down from Mount Sinai where he was in my presence. These shall be my mantle carriers, whether healing, prophecy, teaching, hospitality, prayer, or whatever. My mantle shall be upon them and none shall claim otherwise.”

I was reminded of a vision I had about four or five years ago in which the Glory Cloud came into the church we were in at the time. I’ve since had the same vision set in our present church. There is no precedent for this, nor any preference other than for praying worshiping congregations. I don’t even think it has anything to do with where we are, or which church we are in. This COMING GLORY has everything to do with the hearts of those believers who cry out for such a visitation.

“PREPARE YOUR HEARTS FOR A VISITATION OF MY GLORY!” says the Lord. “I AM COMING SOON, IN FACT, I AM ON MY WAY NOW!”

  • “Marantha”…yes, “Come Lord Jesus” – amen!
  • the darkness of the Britain-shaped cloud contrasts symbolically with the glorious and powerful sunlight behind it, as though ‘below’ our nations (see Comment below).
  • this cloud is not unlike that seen over Windsor on Garter Day 2011, but with split between Scotland and England (Stunning General Election Results 2015… refers).
  • I’m reminded of what violinist Dr Maurice Sklar heard in Jerusalem in 2015, “Tell them all, the Day of the Lord is upon you now”.

Heaven’s trumpet sounding over UK : Changing of the guard over nations

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for these fresh words which, in my humble opinion, indicate what’s about to come here in Britain and on the broader international perspective – as I write that, an incoming email from a reader refers to blowing the trumpet as stated in the 2005 Vision for Great Britain of Wendy Alec:

A TRUMPET SOUND FROM HEAVEN BLOWING ACROSS THE UK

Posted: 12 Jun 2017 02:47 PM PDT  Received by a trusted intercessor 30th May’17:

There is a trumpet sound from Heaven blowing across the UK and hitting the demonic structures that have held the minds of Christians in captivity through faulty thinking and ignorance of what the Word of God really says.

These winds are colliding with demonic strongholds, forming whirlwinds. I saw this happen three times in the spirit realm bringing a completeness in what the Lord will and is doing, in this latter period of transition which is leading to a forward movement and breakthrough.

I saw a wig, like the wig of a judge; the Lord is Judge. He judges the earth, and we will all be judged at the end according to our works. His sword is actively discerning and exposing the thoughts and attitudes of the hearts of men.

As the whirlwind comes, it uncovers all that has been hidden. The whirlwind is the whirlwind of God’s Holy Spirit, bringing a cleansing, removing the dross, the stuff which has been holding us back. And God looks; He wants to see His church really move. He wants to see us being mobilised.

The rubbish in us, especially the gossip, and all those different things that are blocking the way forwards and causing deep pain for some of His beloved, is about to be removed so that there will be an acceleration forwards for those willing to be changed, who repent and who have really humbled themselves. This is a time of new freedom and destiny.

The dross being removed also consists of strongholds of false belief, disappointment and disillusionment which have led to bitterness, unforgiveness and unbelief in many. The religious spirit brings death and shutdown as there is little faith to see miracles and healing. Many are not even believing in the demonic or the supernatural.

Nevertheless, the Lord is sanctifying His Church and those who humble themselves and face into the wind will be cleansed and set free. It is the mercy and grace of God accomplishing this washing of our innermost being in preparation for His next move.

A FRESH ROYAL DIADEM NOW BEING RELEASED FROM HEAVEN!

Posted: 13 Jun 2017 02:18 PM PDT

Dr. Theresa Phillips

There’s a royal diadem coming down from Heaven sent by the Father of lights.

It bears the jewels of Heaven. It comes with a condition: “Change,” says the Lord, “To wear the crown, one must change” (see James 1:17).

There is a changing of the guard, commencing FIRST in Heaven then in the below. As the spiritual guard begins to change so will the natural guards within several nations. Nations like the Philippines, Thailand, Germany, Denmark and England will all see a LEADER-SHIFT.

The Lord Himself is beginning to pinpoint areas within the leadership that needs to be realigned for their assignments. There will be a season of confession, a season of proclamation and then there will be a season of release.

The Lord is preparing people even now with prophecy carrying strength to encourage by conviction. These will be released to release powerful prophecy for they have been set aside because they longed to walk in the royal priesthood humbly before their God (see 1 Peter 2:9).

Over the next seven months, there will be a challenge in the hearts of many to see what their destiny is. It’s a challenge to figure out where they will go and who they will become.

The Lord would say to the people, “Do not ask who you will become, ask Whose you will become. Once that revelation has been released, you will begin to see spheres of influence change and challenge within your life. Then when it (revelation) is released you will see DESTINY emerge.”

The Lord says, “I am realigning and assigning a brand-new royal priesthood, not after the order of anything except Christ Himself. For He had become and IS THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST. No other priesthood compares.

“Royal ambassadors, called into the royal priesthood, will be a new voice throughout the nations. Clergy from the Vatican will begin to change their language. Clergy from England will change their language. There is going to be a great revival in Ireland and Scotland. And the Church of America will shift its language and the RE-BIRTH of the Kings James Bible will emerge on the scene.”

“NOTICE THIS,” says the Lord, “The United States of America will begin to send out a different breed of missionaries. These missionaries will have had experiences in heavenly realms without boasting. They will begin to declare realms, atmospheres, and alignments with Kings in nations and these voices will be heard as voices of solidarity with the Kingdom of Heaven. This will ignite the hearts of many and they will begin to cry, ‘Here am I send me to be the word.’”

2017: year of the breakthrough for the UK

The previous post brought internationally applicable prophetical words, so here’s one specifically for the UK, as brought last December by Chris Bennett, courtesy of UK Prophetic Words. (It’s emphasis upon young people coming into the Kingdom was also yesterday’s Holy Spirit empowered message of Blaine Cook; whom God had used to bring an outpouring of Holy Spirit power upon the Baptist church led by Randy Clark in 1984, and was instrumental in Randy’s own baptism in the Spirit.)

2017 THE YEAR OF THE BREAKTHROUGH FOR THE UK

Today I heard the Lord say that 2017 is the year of breakthrough for the UK.

Breakthrough for the youth, breakthrough in salvations and numbers, breakthrough in all of our outreach areas. Then while we were praying to call in our own breakthrough, I heard the Lord say, “I have heard your prayers. I see your hearts. Your prayers have turned My heart towards you and I will do what you are asking!”

‘Your prayers have turned My heart towards you’ is not something you hear the Lord say every day and I am believing for real breakthrough in 2017. In the Spirit I am seeing exponential increase in salvations and in all areas needing breakthrough.

My heart leapt when I saw something about a new House of Prayer locally in South Yorkshire the other day. Now I know why!!

Time to really intercede for all that the Lord is showing us. Time to ‘turn His heart’ again and again.

The new season of shaking, shifting, resurrection and restoration of…

Veronika West: THE WHOLE WORLD IS BEING SHAKEN AND SHIFTED

In this hour I hear these words coming out of the heavens,

“Prisons SHAKE, Governments SHAKE, Financial systems SHAKE, Schools SHAKE, Military forces SHAKE, Courts and legislatures SHAKE, Everything on earth SHAKE until there is no foundation left but I the Lord.”

It is NOT the devil who is shaking everything. The whole world is being SHAKEN AND SHIFTED by the voice of the VICTORIOUS CHRIST. HIS GLORY IS RISING in power upon the Earth, He is speaking a word to SHAKE AND SHIFT all things.

A GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IS NOW UPON US…!

Veronika West 11th April 2017


Chris Bennett:  
“THIS IS THE TIME FOR ME TO BRING TO FRUITION ALL THE DELAYED OR DEFERRED PROMISES”

There are those who have received words, or had dreams, or prophecies – and they have apparently died! The Lord is saying today that it is time for you to resurrect those words, dreams, and prophecies. It is time for you to remember them. Time for you to repeat them to yourself and to God. Time for you to review the promises and to reclaim those that have failed to manifest themselves.

For the Lord is saying,

“THIS IS THE SEASON OF RESURRECTION, OF RESTORATION OF DREAMS, WORDS, AND PROPHECIES. THIS IS THE TIME FOR ME TO BRING TO FRUITION ALL THE DELAYED OR DEFERRED PROMISES. IF YOU WILL PRESENT ME WITH A CLEAN HEART”, says the Lord, “THEN I WILL RESURRECT THAT WHICH HAS BEEN DEFERRED AND DELAYED FOR YOU IN THIS COMING SEASON.”

Simon Braker: A new season and restoration of the Apostolic Church

The Church has Entered into a New Season and Fulfilment of the Vision of the Restoration of the Apostolic Church

In the year 2000 the Lord took me into a vision:

I saw a group of men and women building a structure out of wood; it looked about the size and shape of a football pitch and what was being built looked like a greenhouse without the glass.

Periodically the people would all gather in the middle to cry out to God for him to come but there was no answer.

This resulted in them getting more wood to be added to the structure, but still when they called on God there was no answer.

I then began to hear a sound coming from a large crowd of people; as they got closer I could hear that they were shouting, ‘there is a new season!’

As they shouted this they smashed through the structure the others were building. Some of the builders began to fight with the new crowd; others just sank to the floor in despair.

Another group grabbed some of the old structure and started to try to rebuild it in another location.

Then one last group got up and joined the new group.

I then was taken into a second vision:

I saw a hand with its thumb missing, suddenly the thumb was added and I heard the Lord say When the thumb is restored the function of the other fingers and hand is redefined and restored.”

I understood the two visions were one vision as they both reflected the promise of the restoration of the Apostolic church.

Over the last few weeks I have found the Lord reminding me of this vision and had the sense that we have entered into the fulfilment of the vision in these days.

The vision is more than simply the restoration of the role of apostle to the church; it is the restoration of the full fivefold ministry and the raising up of a church of mobilised saints, who know their call and have broken free from the four walls of temple based religion and shifted into a mission focused movement.

Simon Braker, School of the Spirit, Leicester 6th April 2017

RB Notes:
  • Upon hearing teaching a few years after the Millennium on Jesus’ Ascension gifts for leaders’ five-fold ministry, I likened them immediately to the under-shepherd’s hand being properly able to grasp his crook in order to lead the Lord’s flock.

2001 prophetic words on Britain and Commonwealth – and USA!

Puzzle in Sky by Idea Go, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net

Timing for prophetic jigsaw pieces continues to fascinate as being indicative of what the Lord wants us to pray about and where He’s moving.

I’m grateful to Edmund Phillimore for making contact and making me aware of a talk in 2001 by Ruth Ruibal.  It seems he may not have realised I’d posted an item on Britain, the Commonwealth and USA for, in her speech, Ruth had drawn attention to a revival in the whole alliance.

Edmund writes by way of introduction:

‘Have just come across your website in searching for the prophecy given by Smith Wigglesworth.  I was brought up in the 1930/40s believing that God’s calling was upon Great Britain. He had planted the Bible deep in this nation….but the while the 1960s saw a public repudiation of faith, God was at work in the Charismatic renewal.

‘Transformation Videos circa 2000 brought news of remarkable revivals around the world. 

The second one was launched at a conference in Birmingham in 2001. I wasn’t there, but I still have a set of tape recordings of the various speakers. Ruth Ruibal was invited from Columbia, and the attached is notes of some of the things that she said, and her words in bold script later in the text are the ones that I particularly noted.  In essence she said that God’s calling was on this nation and His calling is irrevocable.’

Read her encouraging message at 2001: New Millennium Battle for Britain’s Destiny  (my title). It anticipates by 12 years (that number again!!) what Revd Dr Sharon Stone brought about the reason for Britain’s spiritual battle (Prophetic Clarion Call for 2014-16: see parts 2 & 3) – and newly installed President Trump re-iterated those of 2012 on the restoration of national identities (here).

Thank you to Ruth also for her kind permission to publish.

Fulfilled Prophecies #19 – Britain’s shackles now shattered

Have you ever felt fetters fall away? The invisible, spiritual sort that satan shackles all those with who allow it a foothold to gain a grip upon their souls. The time that happened to me is etched upon my soul. Upon internally hearing, “Burn what you’ve collected – now!” I took articles from my life spent in occult study into the garden, put a match to them and repented. Immediately, I unmistakably felt heavy chains fall from both wrists! As in Charles Wesley’s glorious hymn ‘And Can It Be?’ – “My chains fell off, my heart was free. I rose, went forth and followed thee!”

Thus, the following two words circulated by UK Prophetic Words on this theme resonate deeply with me. Although 12 years apart, the timing seems significant (see footnote):

BREXIT and GREAT BRITAIN – THE SHACKLES HAVE BEEN BROKEN!

Kathy Laity (Hephzibah House of Strategic Prayer, Cornwall) Tues 28th March 2017

I’d been agitated all day (as had others on team here) but since midnight was really praying re Brexit. Immediately felt God say “DECREE don’t pray!”.

I started to decree “Brexit shall happen in the name of Jesus!”.

Immediately, I saw a massive sledgehammer slam down on a huge, thick chain link. I kept decreeing. Each time I did the sledgehammer fell. I saw the first link break, then became aware of another. Kept decreeing until it broke, then two further chains. At this point I saw they had been around the legs of a large male LION. Now I could see a thick iron collar, blindfold and muzzle. I kept decreeing. The iron collar opened and dropped off, as did the blindfold.

I could sense the lion’s anger and a roar building. The moment the muzzle fell away it roared mightily, leapt forward and grabbed the enemy, Satan, by the throat, shaking and dispatching it (rather like Aslan with the white witch). I kept decreeing but now the scene changed.

The lion had on a royal red robe, was wearing a crown and had a sceptre of authority. I knew it was releasing MANDATES. There was an immense sense of PEACE, ORDER, and AUTHORITY.

My sense throughout it all was that the LION was representing GREAT BRITAIN (as is often seen on the coat of arms) and that the enemy was responsible for the shackles. The lion’s STRENGTH on being released was immense.

*************************************************************
WENDY ALEC: VISION FOR GREAT BRITAIN 15th July 2005 – excerpts:

Then the Lord showed me a large lion – and He said – “This lion represents the nation of Great Britain” – And it was a shocking sight – for where the lion should have been filled out and sleek and gleaming – it was almost a skeleton – and its mane was barely visible – and its coat was covered in mange – and its roar which should have shaken the nations in its power and in its ferocity was strangled and barely audible. And the Lord said, “This represents both the glory of this nation at present and the state of My Church as a whole in Great Britain”. And I saw in great letters – the words – “THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN AND THE LION SHALL ROAR AGAIN.

And the Lord said – “Bring back My glory – Bring back My glory that your nation may once more walk in the glory of its destiny – and the Church may show forth My glory” – And the Lord showed me huge flourishing green tree that was planted in the European mainland – its huge trunk seemed to be PLANTED in BRUSSELS and the foliage had grown so dense that the trees branches and foliage had grown over the English channel and covered Britain in a great dark shadow and thousands of smaller offshoots and branches had taken deep root in Great Britain – and I saw the roots tangled and grown into London and then through the British Isles up all the way to Scotland.

The Lord said – “These are the deep roots of secularism and humanism that have taken deep root in this nation – these are the roots that are eroding this nation’s faith!” And I saw thousands upon thousands of people bowing in obedience to this tree and the roots were tightly twisted around their ankles – but they seemed totally unaware of this – that they were bound – and so they rejected the faith of their fathers – and I saw a great scoffing and a great decline in the traditions and the foundations of the past – and this mass of people was divided into two camps – the first huge mass of people whose ankles were bound by the gnarling roots of the green tree from Europe were younger and seemed more modern in their approach – and I saw written over their head – ‘UNBELIEF’ – ‘CYNICISM’ – ‘HUMANISM’ – and the foliage and green leaves seemed to shadow their heads – and I sensed that they were being attacked at a cerebral level.”

But the second group seemed to be those whose roots and foundations were from the established traditional denominations of Britain – yet they were just as affected as this first group – but I saw written over their head – ‘PRIDE’ – ‘SKEPTICISM’ – ‘CLOSED MINDEDNESS’ and I sensed that the roots around their ankles had bound them in a different manner – that even if they heard the call of the Spirit in these days that the spiritual forces had them so bound that they could not move with the tide and the times of God – and I saw the green foliage literally cover and shadow their foreheads and eyes and I saw the word blinding.”

And I said to the Lord, “Father – what does this mean?” And He said – “The spirits that led Europe into post-Christian decline – have invaded Great Britain over these past decades – and have infiltrated and overshadowed the nation with the same humanism and paganism and secularism – and yet Britain is still so blinded by her roots and her foundations that she is still declaring herself a Christian nation” – but the Lord says that – “She has been shackled by the enemy.” And I said “Lord what can break the shackles?”

And the Lord spoke and said,“The prayers and fervent supplications of My saints in Great Britain – the repentance for the sins of commission and omission on behalf of the governments of Great Britain – on behalf of the people of Great Britain.”

Then as people dropped to their knees all over Britain from every walk of life and denomination – the lion started to change – and He grew strong and sleek and his roar grew stronger. And I saw written in the spirit – “Create in me a clean heart O God – and renew a right spirit within me“. And as the people started to seek the face of the Lord I saw the word ‘COURAGE’ – and I knew that in the spirit realm that Great Britain had been endowed from the beginning of time with the mantle ‘COURAGE’ – and the Lord said,

“LIONHEART”.

And God said Britain has yet to move into her end time destiny in the nations – And I saw again in great letters – the words –

“THE GLORY HAS DEPARTED FROM THE LION – BUT THE GLORY OF THE LORD OF HOSTS SHALL RETURN”.

And the lion’s roar by now had gained strength.

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.

Vision of a New Apostolic Reformation

With thanks to Yinka of The Gate, Reading and to UK Prophetic Words. The location of this vision is especially interesting in view of Lynne F’s 2001 vision of the Body of Christ in Britain arising like a sleeping giant, of which two intercessors reported similar impressions last year (comments to Prophetic Significance of PM Mays’ Speech in Philadelphia).:

YINKA OYEKAN: PROPHETIC VISION OF NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION

As I left Cornwall on Friday afternoon (10th Feb 17), I had a vision of a New Apostolic Reformation emerging across this United Kingdom. I saw Apostolic leaders walking arm in arm with and serving denominational leaders in humility.

In this emerging season the bride will be empowered as her leaders serve her and wash her feet. For her leaders now understand these revisited Ephesians 4 graces were never to create a platform for an individual, nor were they sent in previous generations to fracture the body or boost the ego of man but rather they have been given to mobilise a powerful bride where every saint ìs equipped and looks more like Christ.

One equipped saint will feed 1000 hungry souls, ten will feed a city. Father’s purpose and focus in a new apostolic reformation is not only to revitalise the priesthood of all believers where the extraordinary will become ordinary, but to ensure her pastors and leaders are supported and discover a new confidence. Empowered pastors will empower their flock.

I saw intercessors hovering over this move like Angels, their prayers ascending to Heaven providing an echo of his glory over the nation, a prayer covering of incense thick as a cloud. This cloud has been a faithful witness rising before the throne room. The prayers of the saints have covered these shores, and hidden Fathers purposes from the enemy; now Father having received her prayers is doing a new thing.

These intercessors will not be seen as an optional extra in church life but will be seen as central to Father’s purposes, they will walk arm in arm with this new apostolic reformation.

Father will bring extraordinary Ephesians 4 Ministries together into a new apostolic liberty, and this time they will flow as one, understanding and embracing each other, no longer fractured and isolated pastors, teachers, prophets, evangelists, but rather flowing as peers in one river.

Father is particularly determined to build up Church pastors who have felt isolated and will provide in this reformation a safe haven where they will be loved and supported, served and equipped within their denominations, and they find access to committed peer relationships outside and within.

Denominational leaders will embrace and support this new apostolic reformation as honour will flow in both directions. This reformation will have a new name, previously hidden by Father which he will reveal. All this is part of the latter rain.

Father has been shielding this new apostolic reformation from the eyes of the enemy but he will soon bring it to light. I see a new generation of leaders who serve and use their strength to build HIS kingdom and not theirs. There will be signs and wonders within the church and without, as this new wineskin emerges. It will form the basis of a new unity movement.

Note: for  more on Cornwall see Yinka’s Facebook entry 14th February.

God’s GPS#3 con’td – Prophetic promises of fresh revelation – Part 2

The second email issued in the early hours comes through Lana Vawser in Queensland, and which reiterates a word for 2017 and thereby strongly emphases the Lord’s call:

DON’T FORESAKE THE SECRET PLACE!

LanaVawserI keep hearing the words over and over “Don’t forsake the secret place”. It has been weighing SO HEAVY on my heart lately. There has been such a stirring in my heart that the Lord is releasing a greater invitation to His people to COME DEEPER and COME HIGHER!!!

I had an encounter with Jesus many months ago and He spoke to me about a season of radical acceleration, breakthrough momentum and increase. The MANIFESTATION OF LIFE was springing up ALL AROUND!!!

When Jesus spoke to me about this season we are in and moving further into and how exciting it will be. It will be the “FINALLY SEASON”. The season that we have been waiting for. Where we begin to see the first fruits of breakthrough, we begin to see the explosion of Ephesians 3:20 in our lives, and we begin to see the increased momentum of the move of the Holy Spirit amongst the body of Christ bringing the GREATEST AWAKENING that we have EVER seen. The AWAKENING so glorious, it will spill out into the nations, and we will begin to see a great divine turning, returning and restoration within nations.

In this encounter, Jesus grabbed my hands and with such love in His eyes, He said to me “But don’t lose Me in the breakthrough”. In this encounter I began to weep and weep as I felt the weight of the warning, the weight of the invitation to come deeper and the absolute pure truth and reality that He is so jealous for His people. His heart is always longing and crying out for deeper intimacy with His people. His heart so full of love for His people, so longing to dine with His people and share His heart.

This encounter burnt so deeply in me the heart of the Lord for His people to KNOW HIM and I have carried the fear of the Lord concerning this season of acceleration and breakthrough, crying out for wisdom on how to steward this season of breakthrough, increase, acceleration and extension. I believe that as we are entering deeper into this season that is SO GLORIOUS, the Lord out of His love, continues to warn us, to call us deeper, to remind us to remain in the secret place and draw us back when we wander.

Jesus is teaching us right now how to STEWARD THIS SEASON WITH PURITY AND INTEGRITY and it all flows from THE SECRET PLACE.

DON’T DESPISE THE ‘FRUSTRATION’, REST AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THE REST

There is a FRUSTRATION that many are feeling in this season. Things are not happening fast enough, or there’s another delay, or things aren’t opening in the way that has been expected, but I want to encourage you to REST and let Him take care of the REST. I have said many times in this season that He is going to lead you to something better than you could ever imagine or expect, but there is a deeper level of surrender to His WAYS and TIMING in this season that is required. Don’t rush your process, continue to delight in Him. Make MEETING WITH HIM DAILY with NO AGENDA your greatest priority and the LIFE and ABUNDANCE that shall flow from that place will leave you in AWE. The frustration many of you are feeling, the Lord is using, to draw you closer to Him, because He wants to release greater revelations of who He is, His beauty and His love. He hasn’t forgotten your dreams and the promises He has given you, He’s working deep on your foundations to keep you anchored in Him.

DON’T LOSE THE KEY AND YOUR KEYS – WORSHIP

In this season of acceleration, where there is a temptation to forsake the secret place, not from ill intention, but getting carried away in the breakthrough and joy of the season, even becoming distracted by manifestations of breakthrough, favour and increase – WORSHIP must be a priority every day. Worship will keep you covered, worship will keep your eyes on Him, worship will keep you aligned, yielded and sensitive to Him.

I had a vision as many were getting carried away in this whirlwind season of acceleration beginning to come up against situations that seemed “locked” and they didn’t know the “way through” or how to “unlock” breakthrough in prayer through intercessory strategies. They were running around in a frenzy and they were panicked saying “Where are my keys? I can’t find my keys, where have my keys gone?

“It was then that I saw Jesus standing before them and with a smile on His face He spoke,

“I AM THE KEY! In Me are ALL KEYS of STRATEGY, WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. DON’T LOSE THE KEY AND YOUR KEYS – WORSHIP!!!”

Last year the Lord was emphasising strongly this is the season of the FIRST LOVE, a great returning, and this year, I believe He is emphasising it EVEN MORE, because of the mighty acceleration, breakthrough and increase we are beginning to see.

DON’T FALL ASLEEP AND BACK INTO COMPLACENCY

“Don’t fall asleep and back into complacency. I want a BRIDE THAT BURNS!!!! To COUNTERACT the SLUMBER – WORSHIP and do not forsake the secret place! Be INTENTIONAL to WORSHIP!!!! WORSHIP WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE!!!!”

“In the secret place right now, you are going to encounter My fire and the power of My Spirit as you worship, that is going to set you alight! It’s going to take you into realms of intimacy with Me that will see your heart and soul filled with the greatest, deepest peace and joy you have ever known. It’s not the time to ‘sit back and relax’ as the pressure lifts. It’s the time to press even deeper still into knowing Me. It’s the time to worship like you have never worshipped before. It’s the time to dance with Me and catch My gaze as I look lovingly towards you and let Me lead you. Let Me guide you. Forsake all other things that are pulling at you, and focus on Me. Trust Me, for I am taking you to places that you have never imagined or dreamed. This is the year where I am causing you to THRIVE and ARRIVE but all life and increase and long-lasting fruit will flow from the secret place.”

ALLOW ME TO PREPARE YOU FOR YOUR GREATEST DAYS UPON THIS EARTH

“It will be EVIDENT in this season who has been in the secret place and who hasn’t.”

“I am highlighting the lamps! I am highlighting the lamps! Look at your lamps! How are your lamps? Are your lamps full? Or are your lamps empty? Do not be found “not ready”. You must be found ready!!!! Come deeper, come deeper My people. Come to Me, not in fear, come to Me in delight, to know Me for who I am. I am working for your good, I am working in your heart, soul and life to set you up for longevity. For what I am doing and about to do in the earth, My people must be rooted and anchored in Me and know the secret place like never before. There must be a new level of sensitivity to see where I am going and what I am doing, and you will only increase in sensitivity as you press into Me and allow Me to teach you and mould you. Your greatest days are upon you, and My heart of love for you, My heart as a good Father is yearning, for you to yield and come deeper in the secret place and allow Me to prepare you for your greatest days upon this earth.”

SATURATE YOURSELVES IN THE WORD

“There’s a call being released from My heart right now to saturate yourselves in the Word like never before. Feast upon it day and night. Surround yourself with it daily. There’s a temptation to ‘snack’ here and there upon the Word in this season as things as this acceleration increases, but it’s in this place, you need to slow down and FEAST AND CHEW on the Word. It’s CRUCIAL My people are in a place of MEDITATION upon My Word in this season of ELEVATION AND ACCELERATION.”

Angelic Clarion-call over the UK

Heralding Angels with Golden Trumpets Issuing a Clarion Call over the U.K.

Linda Diggle: 24 Dec’16

I was waking up from a dream and I saw 4 angels blowing golden trumpets over the U.K. Each one was positioned at 4 locations. One, the most Northerly – John O’ Groats, Southerly – Lands End, Westerly – Ardnamurchan Point in Lochaber in Scotland and Easterly – Ness Point in Lowestoft. These angels were heralding angels and were announcing a coming move of God, bringing an outpouring to the UK. This outpouring will bring awakening and revival to the church and a deep conviction on the unsaved, and many will be brought into the Kingdom. The angels were issuing a clarion call, which meant there was a sense of urgency requiring action of some kind.

For the church, the trumpets announce a wake up call. Like the reveille call in the army, calling the soldiers in the army to wake up at sunrise for action, to active service. This is a call to God’s beloved people:

“Wake up, wake up from your slumber, awaken and arise, because I am coming. I am announcing this to you ahead of time. Awaken from your sleep and come out and be separate from those who are sleeping and from the world.”

“A call to the church to “Arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you” (Isa 60:1). Like the Laodicean church, repent of any personal or corporate complacency, apathy, lukewarmness, lack of passion, political correct-ness, thinking all is well, any self-sufficiency that we have all we need, of a need to be at the centre of things. Move aside and let me be at the centre. Don’t let your wineskin limit what I want to do. Do not take offence when others are on fire and impassioned for many fires are igniting in many places in the UK and will spread like wildfire. All are called to step into this.

“Let a new, desperate cry call out for a fresh outpouring of living water, deep calling out to deep, overwhelming encounters of my extravagant and eternal love for you, healing and restoration and receive, receive. Let me restore to you the joy of your salvation once again. Then, cry out but now with my heart, with my tears as I bring a new spirit of deep intercession to come on the church, my people in this nation, and pray pray pray for my many lost children in your villages, towns and cities in this nation. Pray for a shift away from liberal faith and philosophies and a return to Biblical holiness and truth. I stand outside at the door and knock.”

“Lift up your heads you gates, lift them up you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. (Ps 24:7)…Look up for my Kingdom is at hand, my glory is at hand.”

Thinking of another trumpet, “the last post” is blown every year over the nation on remembrance Sunday as we remember the sacrifice of brave men and women who paid with their lives in battle, for our peace. Let these angelic trumpet blasts cause us to remember Jesus who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our salvation, and the great cloud of witnesses who are looking on, cheering and encouraging us on. Remember their example, of faith, obedience, intimacy and passion for God and for the lost.

There is so much to do so position your hearts, prepare yourselves, raise up a standard over your towns, cry out as one voice as never before and cry out to me to come, to save, to heal and deliver. Raise up a shout of praise, of worship, of prayer and a longing for revival. Do it together in unison as one body, together in every place as a nation.

A worship song then came into my mind of “Shout to the north and the south, sing to the east and the west, Jesus is Lord over all, King of heaven and earth”.

Because of the urgency of the times, denominational differences, old wounds and barriers will be healed and fall away. 2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” The trumpets are being blown; the sound is drawing a line from north to south from west to east. Cry out in holy desperation for your kinsmen in this hour.

For the unsaved – the trumpets call is to announce good news. Come out and be separate. 2 Corinthians 6:15-18 “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from them and be separate says the lord…I will be a father to, you, and you will be my sons and daughters.” The Lord’s covenant relationship. This is the day of your salvation, save yourselves, the time is shortening, the salvation of the Lamb is at hand.

This is the time for repentance, to turn back to me and reclaim your national spiritual inheritance as a nation that has been robbed from you by the enemy. The cross will be lifted up once more, a deep concentrated revelation as Jesus salvation brings many into the Kingdom. The revelation of the cross will bring a shock wave of deep conviction, and repentance and there will be many tears, tears of repentance, thankfulness and joy as the veil is suddenly torn from peoples eyes, minds and hearts as they see Gods salvation plan and encounter His extravagant love through the cross. The cross will be reclaimed as a national heritage and will no more be emptied of its power as people en-masse return to the Lord to His saving, healing love.. There will be a return to the word of God, as softened hearts, under Holy Spirit conviction, with a deep hunger and gladness, will receive and revere the word God in the Bible.

People will turn away from the fruitless deeds of darkness and the temporary satisfaction and security of the world. These things will lose their appeal and a wholesale disillusionment will come upon the nation for worldly pleasures, wealth, power, leisure and media, entertainment, liberal teaching in some areas of the church. The angels said to pray for this disillusionment as the facade are ripped away. Pray this will usher in a longing for truth, spiritual reality and a return to divine destiny. Like the woman at the well, people will be disillusioned with the world and seek the Lords’ living water, an increased longing for their eternal calling and destiny that God placed eternity in the hearts men. A longing to come home and be sons and daughters of the living God. As Jesus drew out this longing out of the heart of the woman at the well, so the people of God will draw out spiritual hunger for truth and reality out of people as they hold out the word of life and step out in my name. A call for hearts to find their home in the heart of the Father as we go out working in relationship and oneness with the Trinity to preach the gospel and demonstrate the Kingdom in miracles, healings, signs and wonders and so lead them to Jesus.

Prophetic word on the great urgency of these End-times

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

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

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

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

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

2 Timothy 4:1-5

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