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.”

Chris Bennett 2 Jan’17

 

Our Mighty Deliverer calls to come up to the high places with Him!

This prophetic word brought through Veronika West with Nathanael Eliakim Beugre is dated 30th December:

2017

As we do this His Anointing will break and remove ALL and EVERY false burden that the enemy has placed upon our lives over the last year..!

Every heavy yoke of oppression and depression that has weighed us down, slowed our advancing and stifled our faith and expectation will be suddenly dismantled and destroyed.

I PROPHESY IN 2017 YOU ARE GOING UP TO THE HIGH PLACES WHERE THE POWERS OF DECEPTION, DISTORTION, DISORIENTATION AND LOSS OF DIRECTION ARE BEING DEALT A DEATH BLOW BY THE HAND OF GOD.

“Come, let us go UP TO THE HIGH PLACES TOGETHER, where I can readjust your focus and enlarge your faith, where I can give you eyes that SEE beyond the realms of darkness and destruction and ears that can HEAR the sound of My heartbeat for the Nations and a renewed mind that can UNDERSTAND and PERCEIVE the hidden MYSTERIES of My Glory and power. For upon the High Places nothing is hidden or withheld from My Sons and Daughters but all that I am and all that I have to give is released, revealed and uncovered in this higher place”, says God.

“For even now I am rewiring your present mindsets, retuning your hearts to the frequency of heaven and sensitising your ears to the vibration and frequency of My Spirit”, says God.

“WATCH! As New pathways BREAK OPEN before you, pathways that will lead to a new land of Promise and Kingdom purpose, a highway of holiness to the rivers that run in the dry wastelands, for the times of Refreshing and Re-awakening are NOW HERE”, says God.

“Come, STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN! to what My Spirit is saying and doing in this hour, for It is TIME TO DRINK from the fountain of LIFE, Abundance and pure Delight.

“YES, YES My Beloved, I AM is doing a NEW THING in the midst of you! Now Draw near and be stilled and invigorated by the reassuring sounds of My Rivers current that will move and push you forward, its waters will cleanse and purify, its waters will remove every entanglement of Fear and sense of failure. HERE! My River of Abundance sustains and supplies your every need, it brings forth abundant fruit and freshness all year round, and wherever My River flows it brings forth Freedom, Healing and Restoration, and everything it touches is changed and transformed”!

I Decree NOW;
Every heavy yoke of sickness and disease that has wearied and weakened your body will be destroyed in the name of Jesus.
Every heavy yoke of bondage that has come through addiction will be destroyed in the name of Jesus.
Every unequal yoke in business, ministry and relationships will be broken and dissolved in the name of Jesus.
Every heavy yoke and false burden that has been placed upon you by ungodly, unloving and controlling leadership will be removed and thrown into the fire.

I DECLARE FREEDOM OVER YOU, FREEDOM TO MOVE, FREEDOM TO SPEAK, FREEDOM TO RUN, FREEDOM TO ADVANCE AND FREEDOM TO OCCUPY NEW GROUND.
Every stone of offence from the past year will be released from your life. AS YOU CHOOSE FORGIVENESS YOU WILL BE REALIGNED AND REPOSITIONED FOR GREATER INCREASE, EXPANSION AND FAVOUR IN THE NEW YEAR AHEAD.
NOW, RECEIVE THE YOKE WHICH IS EASY AND BURDEN WHICH IS LIGHT FOR 2017, TAKE UP THE YOKE OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY, TAKE UP THE BURDEN OF JESUS CHRIST AND WALK IN HIS GRACE WHICH IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU.

Chris Bennett 27 Dec’16: The Wind of His Holy Spirit is Starting to Blow

The wind of His Holy Spirit is blowing over you, over your church, town, and area. Reports are already coming in to this effect. When this wind blows, the Lord asks, what will withstand it? What will prevent it achieving that for which it was sent? It is sent to refresh you, to anoint you, to awaken those around you. To awaken those who need to find the Lord, and to awaken those who need to speak to them.

My church is asleep, says the Lord. My church failed to set its alarm clock! Otherwise what else can account for the church being so unready, so unprepared, so lacking in any urgency? The wind of My Spirit is beginning to blow the sleep away. It is blowing the old, dusty cobwebs off so that the church may realise the lateness of the hour. Even so, it will be too late for many who, despite the wake up call, will simply hit the snooze button and turn over again! Thus the wheat and tares will be separated and the dreadful call of the judgement trumpet will belatedly awaken some to their fate.

Lisa Arnold 28 Dec’16: Word for 2017 to God’s People

Going in to 2017 will be like stepping into a new Summer’s day. Everything will be different, your attitudes, your motives, a new passion for me. I will expand your hearts and your territory. I will get rid of hopelessness and despair, and give you new hope and faith for the future. You will find out your destiny this year and know your true inheritance.

You will cross over into your promised land. Milk and honey will flow into your garden. I am adorning and preparing my bride. Your churches will start to unite this year. I am bringing down the walls of Control, Jezebel and Leviathan that are sucking the life out of my body. It is time to step out and repent and let go of all pride and bitterness.

I will show you what unconditional love is. You will be so secure in my love and who you are in me; you will not need to look to other people for other people for approval. You will find your position in the body of Christ, and not feel like an outcast. It is time to be real; there is a hurting world out there to reach.

I want you to go out of the churches and look for the lost. I will give you a holy boldness to go where angels fear to tread. I will help you grow into the mantles and anointings I have given you. My grace is sufficient for you. This year will be a year of much growth, transformation, creativity and new life and freedom to move in the spirit. I will not leave you as you are.

There will be no more delay; start looking up, thinking eternal. Bring heaven down to earth. Love your brother, make me your first love, delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart. Abba.

Patsy Southway 31 Dec’16: ALL CHANGE! ALL CHANGE! ALL CHANGE!

Having spent a couple of days away with the Lord – ‘investing by resting’ as some call it; one of the encouragements he spoke to me about was the preparation that many are/have been going through. In a vision he took me to a railway station that had many tracks. The guard blew his whistle and shouted ‘ALL CHANGE! ALL CHANGE! ALL CHANGE! People were disembarking from the train onto the platform.

I could also see a signalman moving the levers to SHIFT some of the tracks in order for particular trains to go in a different direction.

In another area of the station, NEW TRACKS were being laid.

As I watched this vision unfold I was thinking ‘What’s going on? So much movement and change; people everywhere!’

The Lord said, “I am bringing into ALIGNMENT the many prayers and prophetic words that have been spoken. There has been a ‘holy frustration’ among many of you. You wrote down the vision, you believed, you prayed, you fasted. You believed, you prayed, you fasted wondering WHEN am I going to see the FULFILLMENT of what was promised?!
Well, the ‘SIGNALMAN’ is causing the SHIFT, the people have got off the train as the GUARD told them to and the NEW TRACK is being laid. This is MY TIMELY INTERVENTION, ushering in a HEAVENLY MANDATE upon the Earth.” ‘It’s time…’

Jesus Christ declares, “I am the Light of the World”

I’m grateful to Dave Chapman for sending this personal encouragement which I’m sharing with my readers upon return to blogging. Having been offline for all but an hour over the holiday I hadn’t read this until today and happily surprised (maybe I shouldn’t be!) at this year starting with a ‘coincidental’ hint from the Lord!

In our daily ‘Keep Praying and Bless’, as blogged in the Summer, we’re now back at its opening day’s decree and blessing for Land’s End, from where the Praise Bus started its nationwide journey accompanying the Olympic Torch in 2012 (see introductory post). The first decree in this prayer cycle is “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD”, from John 8:12 – “I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

Hence my immense delight upon discovering the title of Dave’s paper (links and video are mine). Be mightily encouraged and blessed as you read:

2017 – A FESTIVAL OF LIGHT

As I start to write it is very early morning on Christmas Eve.  I had been inspired by an account I just read of the Jewish soldier in George Washington’s army (JNN News), who had apparently inspired him to hope, even believe, he would win the war he was in – yes, the one against us British who were seeking to bring them under our control!

2017 prophetic word and prayer request for UK

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for this transcript, to which impressions from the Lord are emphasised and paragraph breaks added for ease of reading in view of its length:

WORD FOR UK 2017 – SARAH ROWLINSON

I saw the Lord speak to the land of the UK, and I heard Him say, “There is still yet historical spiritual legacy in the land, that I am going to honour.” And I saw two key areas. And this was on our Queen, Elizabeth. And it was on the Church of England. And the Lord said, “Because of prayers that have been prayed, because of promises and oaths taken, that were fulfilled, because of decisions that were made before Me, there’s a deposit of favour in the land still that I’m going to honour.”

So I heard the Lord say that we, as believers, should pray for the constitution of our Monarch. And that had a double meaning: that we were to pray for her constitution in terms of her governance, in terms of her political government and what God has given her to carry, and to do. Because there’s a role that takes place there. And then secondly that we were to pray for her constitution in terms of her health and her strength; that if we will pray, there will be a supernatural impartation to enable her to hold her place a little bit longer than is anticipated or expected. Because she’s still holding ground in the spirit, and it’s important and significant, but it is the prayers of the saints that are going to keep that there.

And then secondly, I saw a branch of revival coming through a branch of the Church of England. Not the whole thing, there’s a branch of it. And it’s coming strong, and it’s coming steady, and it will build significantly this year. And I saw that in some of the major cities in our country, Cathedrals would be filled once again. And the old church buildings will be filled with the sound of worship.

And these places will be empowered with acts of service again that this church denomination was once renowned for. There’s an activation in this stream, there’s a mobilization in this stream. And I felt like these churches would come into the heart of community activities once again, they would come into even places of government and influence for the good of the whole communities in which they serve.

And I felt like the Lord was saying to the rest of the brothers and sisters around these communities to support what the spirit of God is doing through these churches, put down some of your theological barriers and some of your ‘oh they’re just the religious lot, we don’t really deal with them’, that type of thing, put that down and support and serve because it was Him, and He was mobilizing a sense of revival through this stream.
Wisdom and Counsel will be found in these churches for many. I saw many going, like they used to, and say: “I have questions, I don’t understand, my marriage is falling apart, my business is falling down the tubes, I’m going to go and find the vicar.” And that coming back into our land, and that it was a healthy thing.

So, I’m prophesying that bit that I’ve seen, not because God’s not going to move dramatically , dynamically into all the other church streams across the nation, that’s just the bit that I see, and it’s not a stream that I’m a part of.

You know how you would see a map, and then you would see the hotspots on a map? That’s how I saw some of these places. And I saw some within nearly all the major cities: Manchester, London, Liverpool, all the big strategic cities that these branches are coming out from. But I also saw, all along the South East coast there was just lots and lots of hotspots that were being planted out from these streams. And God was putting a spiritual guard on that Western coast strategically.

And then I saw that innovation, and the pioneering heart of the UK, began to rise again, significantly, in 2017. Innovation and pioneering, that has been really at the heart of our nation over centuries and centuries, and it is rising again. The spirit of God is coming and He’s bringing innovative creative ideas right across the board, and with that courage that Emma [Stark – at Glasgow Prophetic Centre] talked about earlier, that ability to rise again. Pioneering. New Technologies. New medical ideas. New ways of delivering education. New media strategies.

And I keep hearing, I’ve been hearing for the last two years. There’s convergence. There’s convergence. It’s convergence. It’s Word and Spirit. It’s this church stream and … church stream. It is the world’s wisdom and God’s wisdom. There’s convergence between the natural and the supernatural. Everything is coming into convergence and marriage so that things can be built, earthed and take place. So that things don’t just stay in the supernatural realm, sitting here while we all have a party in the church.

So I feel like the Lord said to me that the application of knowledge will begin to emerge to be almost like a currency. It will be almost as powerful as money. And what was ringing in my spirit as I was preparing this Word, is that the Lord was saying 2017 is the year of wisdom. Because that’s how Solomon made the people prosperous. That’s how Solomon made Israel prosperous. It was through wisdom, because he knew what to do. And when he didn’t know what to do, he went and found out. That’s a prophetic Word for so many right there. So many have been going round and round and round, it’s a relational circle, it’s a business circle. It’s an area of your life or your business or your community or your something, where there’s like a circular loop going on and you’ve not managed to come out of it, and the Lord would say that is because you lack wisdom in that realm and in that area, but someone else has got it. The explosion of the knowledge base through the internet through media, has meant that information is literally here in front of you. There is a wealth of knowledge, there is a wealth of information. But you need to know what to access, who to access it from, and how to apply it in your situation. Those who can do those three things are carrying a unique anointing to solve the nation’s problems in this next year. Those of us who will walk like the sons of Issachar and like Joseph will be those that the Lord is uniquely upon to address the nation’s needs at this time.

I also see that there have been many Josephs that have been being prepared and are now ready to act. And these Josephs are people who have the ability to hear the revelations from heaven, but they are able to give strategy to government leaders because they have been equipped and trained in the nasty places. Whilst they were there and God was with them, they learned practical skills, they learned governmental skills, they learned administrative skills. They learned how to run a company. They learned how to run a huge corporation. They’ve learned how to run a small government agency. So that they know that when they go to Pharaoh that they have something in the natural to contribute to the need of the nation. We’re moving into the doing bit. These Josephs will work alongside leaders for the good of the nation, and even for the good of the nations of Europe. God is going to cause these Josephs to come into position so that our nation can be blessed but it’s going to spill over into Europe as well.

I want to say to Josephs this year, Pharaoh is calling for you this year. It’s this year, it’s not twenty years. Leaders of business, leaders of government, places of power and influence are going to call for you and God is initiating it and when it happens, go. You’re going to bring forth revelation of what God is doing but also strategies born from the years of experience and training in the hard places. Pharaoh is going to call for you but he’s going to call to prosper you. And even those that persecuted you will come under the favour and the blessing. It says in scripture that when they called for Joseph, there was a big rush, Pharaoh wanted the answer quickly. But Joseph shaved himself, changed his clothes and made himself ready.

I really feel like that is actually a corporate thing. I really feel like the Lord is saying there’s coming a great call from business leaders, from government leaders, from those of influence. There’s coming a great call, a great demand to the people of God through the relationships that they trust. Those of you who have relationships with people in places of influence, don’t be surprised if a call comes. But when that call comes, you need to make yourself ready. Joseph made himself ready, and one of the things that Pharaoh says, he comments on Joseph, ‘you’ve given me revelation which is amazing but I can see the manner of man you are. Who is wise in the land like you? Who has the character like you do? This is what these leaders these people these places need to see on the inside of us. You have to make yourself fitting for the environment that God would have you step into, because you want them to listen to what you say and not be distracted by a stinky character or what you look like or how you’ve carried yourself. Please don’t be afraid to get trained. Please don’t be afraid to get educated. Please don’t be afraid to learn the language of the culture you will be going into.

To the business community I heard the Lord say: “Hold your nerve. Don’t panic as you look about you. Look to the East but deal wisely and do not move in desperation.” I saw that aid and business partnerships are coming from the East (in the world, not just the East in England), especially from China, but be careful of the conditions and the timings within the contracts that are coming to the table. The negotiations of some of these contracts may be lengthy. And the Lord says He is establishing clean partnerships with believers across the nations that will hold honour at their core. But in other negotiations, there’s a strategy of waiting you out because they have financial resources to do so, to create a desperation, to secure unreasonable terms. In such cases, back off, as smaller and more medium sized companies, and more manageable sized contracts will be more fruitful and productive. I feel like, for the business community, it’s like a general wisdom strategy of, where it is possible, develop multiple revenue streams of different sizes, so that large ones can’t take you out, and small ones will keep you small. It’s a year of doing multiple things, multiple levels, in different ways. That’s actually going to build more of a stream and a flow that’s going to bring a health and a prosperity because when some wider political things begin to take place, that’s going to be important.

I really feel like, 2017, the year’s focus is on governance. The governance needed in the promised land is very different to the governance that’s needed in the wilderness. We’re not living for the daily miracle anymore. I’m not saying that God doesn’t need to do miraculous things. I’m saying we’re in a different season and the season is of you and me being responsible for our own governance and our own lives. Governance is the key word for 2017. And good governance is about the process for making and implementing decisions. I feel like the Spirit of God wants to say to every one of us: “Have a look, have a look at your family, have a look at your business, have a look at your health, have a look at your money, have a look at your church.”

Good governance is about decision making. I’m talking about the way that you build and you construct your life and your business and your community and your organisation and everything like that. God wants to pour into you and into me so very much wealth but what would we do with it if it came? So that whatever we do with it at this (current) scale, we’re going to do with it at this big scale. You need to start dialoguing with people, writing stuff down, and say to yourself, I’m going to act differently; I’m going to move those decisions into a different way. Joseph gets released to Pharaoh because he governed well. He governed himself, he governed Pharaoh’s house, he governed the prison well. So if you move into good governance in your own situation, in your own business, then others are going to want to know, because they are going to see the good governance that is coming upon you. Governance is using your authority for the blessing and good of yourself, but also for the health and the blessing of others, and that’s what makes us different. That’s why we will prosper in our communities. We will make decisions that are not just based on our own selfish need but are based on the need of what is going on around us. We are going to have the ability in 2017 to get our eyes off ourselves, and up and out into a more corporate field, and look at how we can give into the environments where God has already placed us to be, to be a blessing. If we will do that, God is going to bring such prosperity, through the innovation, through the pioneering, through the charitable side of life, in the UK right now, amidst all that’s going on. So if we’re going to come into alignment with what the Lord is doing this year, we’re going to have to look at our own arenas and say, I need to get wisdom. I need to get brave, and I need to get wisdom.

On the changing of earthly time to meet heaven’s timecale

Thank you to UK Prophetic Words for what is, in my humble opinion, another significant word from the Lord on Time in connection with these End-times:

Time is short.

THE TIME HAS CHANGED AND YOU NOW NEED TO LIVE IN A TOTALLY NEW UNDERSTANDING OF MY ETERNAL TIMESCALE

The Lord says:

“Be aware that the time has changed in my dealings upon the Earth. The eternal timescale already set from before the foundation of the Earth has moved forward significantly and it is now in the last minute of this present age. Get ready as never before because I am about to bring the final shaking upon the nations of the earth that shall usher in the full revealing of my Bride, the glorious church, and open up the heavens for the return of my Son. My kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy is being established as the Kingdom above all kingdoms and shall welcome her King of kings and Lord of lords. It is the time to align your lives with the life of my Spirit. To change your mindset from an earthbound limited thinking to a heavenly, eternally focused thinking where all things are possible by the power and wisdom of your God. Be ready, take your stand. Do not fear but lift your eyes heavenward, rejoice continually, for the Lord your God in the midst of you is mighty to save and to deliver his people.”

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

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

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

IMPLODE OR EXPLODE

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

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

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

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

This 4th ‘jigsaw piece’ to the previous post is an example of a ‘God-incident’ along the lines of 2 Chron 16:9 (the Lord’s eyes ranging across the earth to strengthen the redeemed). After drafting it I realised it needed to be in two parts with the intro’ becoming a post-script review. Mulling it over with the Lord I wished for a suitable piece on the Kingdom as follow-on and, ‘Lo and Behold!’, one was on hand first thing that morning. It was in a link on an email alert of a fellow blogger’s comment upon my post of Holy Spirit falling in Congress! Wow!! Thank you Lord.

How to Live in the Kingdom Age

There is much more to life! I’ve been listening to things and reading things recently. I have been very encouraged because there is one thing that seems to be coming up and that is that we are stepping into a NEW ERA. We are on a new timeline. We need to be ready for the changes that are coming in the near future on this earth. We have been living too long in a world where all we live by is what we see. We are now in a new spiritual age! I am excited! This age is called the kingdom age!!! Here are some common themes to help you step into this era…because it will happen whether or not we want it to because God has a plan.

  1. Let go of your life and give it to God

God has a plan. He has…
