Prime Minister and media mirror “a stitch in time” prophecy – Veronika West (F/P #127)

Whilst Nina and I were enjoying a ‘mid-week weekend’ for birthday-cum-anniversary, Veronika West was busy writing about a prophetic word moving into fulfillment and I’m blessed to have been alerted to its publication. After my replying today she responds by way of introduction:

“The Stitch in Time word was incredibly timely and dare I say I have been waiting a long time to see it manifest in the newspapers. The timing of BJ report and his use of the phrase has come at such a strategic time. I believe both the date of the report (22) which matches the same date of the Needle and Thread/ Word and Spirit coming together and the fact that we are in the 9th/Month and at the head of the Year [ie. Hebrew year]… There is much happening and at an accelerated pace.”

Veronika writes on Facebook (Ignite Ireland Ministry) as follows with my editorial inserts and I’m humbled my birthday number ’22’ is of significance:

‘SEE; Two Links listed below of Prophetic Words I gave on a “STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE”…and “A NATIONS FLAG TORN IN TWO; A SILVER NEEDLE AND GOLDEN THREAD”..!

‘Well Prime Minister Boris Johnson refers to the ongoing challenges with the virus using this phrase…“(We are acting on the principle) A Stitch in time Saves Nine”. It was both a powerful sign and confirmation that the battle that is still unfolding CANNOT AND WILL NOT be won in the physical but rather in the spiritual and that the only answer and solution can only be found in a “NATION TURNING AND RETURNING TO ITS FIRST LOVE”…!

‘Furthermore, what’s also interesting is the dates of all these words, and how they connect, yesterday was the 22/09….both the day (22) and the month being the (9th) month, which I believe speaks to and confirms the significance of these words. The first word I received (SILVER NEEDLE AND GOLDEN THREAD) was also on the (22)….and the month that Boris Johnson makes reference to ‘A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE’, comes on the (22) and in the 9TH MONTH….as we know the Number 22 speaks to the HIDDEN MYSTERIES BEING REVEALED AND THE KEY OF DAVID…and the Number 9 speaks to both A TIMING OF BIRTHING AND JUDGEMENT WITHIN THE NATION..!’

Here’s the Fb message I received from Veronika on Wednesday (click image to read press article in full): Continue reading

Last week’s Global Prophecy Signals on new Church also include Canada and USA (GPS #51.5 & #51.6)

‘…by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established…’ (Deuteronomy 19:15) 

So eight would carry some weight!  AND now nine!!

As prophesied some time ago, Kingdom-related events – even when not yet recognised – are rapidly gaining momentum. I trust the topics blogged over recent weeks may have given us a perspective, or perhaps just a glimpse. Here’s a reminder:

THEN, along came Wednesday 2nd September and a zoom meeting of a new church in Farnborough awaiting its formal launch, wherein the pastor brought an insight on Jesus’ focus being upon His heavenly Father and His purposes; thus He commands all that’s of the flesh and the devil to get out of sight behind Him (Mark 8:33).  And that applies today too! 

THAT was followed by a series of confirmations – perhaps even simultaneously – within various messages from around the world, as though via God’s own GPS. It’s His Global Prophecy Signalling system in action; or it may be likened to a shower of jigsaw pieces that fit together, thereby revealing details on an immense invisible jigsaw. This capture and scrutiny requires the teamwork of prophets, sensitive others and scribe.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

LET’S look at those pieces (or signals) as well as a couple of new ones and note their origin. It all began with having nothing special to blog, which is most unusual for a day set aside for blogging. Then along came the signals, or pieces, that reveal something in the Lord’s heart and mind for His followers:

  1. Wed 2nd evening: Farnboro‘ pastor’s Mark 8:33 insight – mine seeing ‘pillar of fire’
  2. Wed 2nd evening: Helen McS contacts me on times and seasons and shares link on Prophetic Releasers to N&C Johnson prophecy of SAME day in Australia.
  3. Thurs 3rd am: I answer Helen, note her link’s relevance, re-blog as GPS#51.1
  4. Thurs 3rd pm: Sarah-Jane B, Scotland, “I am moving. Follow Me!” GPS#51.2
  5. Thurs 3rd: Wanda Alger in Winchester, Virginia, USA writes as below…
  6. Fri 4th am: Lynne H provides link to Chris G Bennet, Rotherham, on God’s line in the sand
  7. Fri 4th pm: ‘God-incidentally’ note Veronika West’s (N. Ireland) brand-new posting with more on God’s line in the sand – ‘pieces’ 5 & 6 posted as GPS#51.3 & #51.4.
  8. Sat 5th; Maxine Phyllis in Nova Scotia, Canada, comments upon my FB version of GPS #51.3 & #51.4 as below…
  9. SEE PS below re. Neil Mackereth in Winchester, Hampshire, England.

THAT IS, after the weekend I learn of yet two more ‘signals’, this time via the ‘Bridge o’r Pond’: one from Winchester, Virginia, USA and the other from Nova Scotia, Canada. (Readers may recall the ‘God-incidental’ blogs on the track of the 1999 solar eclipse ‘mirroring’ the Mayflower’s voyage and an invisible spiritual ‘bridge’ – see Astonishing! Previous Post Gets Immediate Double-confirmation!

On the day I was blogging on that special point from Mark 8.33, Wanda Alger also writes on it and, thereby, confirms the importance of this principle in When will the Church Recognize and Renounce the Political Pharisees?..:

‘….Lest you think our priority should be the Golden Rule right now, remember how Jesus stood up to the robed regulators of His time. Not only did He confront the religious elite, He confronted anyone who gave in to the fear of man instead of the fear of God – even His best friend, Peter.

“Get behind me, Satan!,” He said. “You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.” (Mark 8:33)

‘Instead of focusing on our measure of compassion for the weak or our ability to submit to authority, we should be much more concerned with the spiritual forces at work behind the ongoing political propaganda created by the Pharisees of our day. Our efforts at being peace-loving people and benevolent servants are being manipulated by a spirit that seeks to destroy us. Rather than defending a conviction for wearing masks or challenging others to submit to the law out of fear, we should be recognizing the religious spirit that’s still at work.’ 

Upon returning to my desk this week I find this comment from Maxine Phyllis in Canada on my Facebook version of that double confirmation:

‘During my prayer time this morning I heard the Lord speak something I’ve never heard anywhere else, and it’s based on exactly this: the Kingdom relationship between the Father and Son manifesting on earth as they are in heaven. Not politics, not empty religion that exists to serve itself, but only that relationship which includes Kingdom sons who embrace the call of the Father to walk with His Son the way of the cross…’

The legislative principle ‘By the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established’ (Deut 19:15) also applies to prophecy because the existence of an event or new word from the Lord is being revealed and thus acknowledged. We have EIGHT!

SO we need to take note of what the Lord is saying and showing in the ‘invisible jigsaw picture’ – and listen for more ‘signals’ and watch out for more ‘pieces’ to fall…

PS – AND indeed another signal was being heard that week in Winchester, England, as Neil Mackereth reports in Jesus Says, “Watch With Me!”  (GPS#51.7)

“I Am Moving. Follow Me!” Word confirms the Lord’s instruction (GPS #51.2)

Published this afternoon on Facebook, this from Sarah-Jane Biggart, Asst Director of Glasgow Prophetic Centre and leader of The Purple Company (GPCs international prophetic intercession network), confirms the essence of what was taught at last night’s zoom meeting of Catch The Fire Farnborough. In a fast-track summary of the earliest Gospel account (by Mark), pastor Christopher Bird explained how it shows Jesus’ Way of ‘doing’ Church – as He told pastor: “Watch how I build Church!”. 

Sarah-Jane writes: 

‘I AM MOVING! FOLLOW ME’

I saw the Lord in the Spirit as the Lion of Judah. He came close to my face with His gentle but strong leonine face next to mine and said firmly, but with understated volume;

“I am moving”

He then began to walk ahead and I saw around me people in increasing numbers to my left and right begin to gather and walk with me. The Lord who had walked ahead of us paused deliberately slightly ahead and turned to look at us all. He then said to us all;

“Follow me!”

After He said these words He came very close to me and opened His mouth and roared incredibly loudly and violently into my body and Spirit these words:

“I AM MOVING!”

So loud and thundering was His voice it shook me. The words like many waters repeated over and over; repeated in the roar over and over again. At the same time I could hear Him speak these words in an underlying voice beneath the roar “count the cost” . I began to weep as I heard this knowing the cost would be great for many. The Lord reminding us what He said in Luke 14 to count the cost of following Him again as He released His roar.

ANGELS OF DIRECTION:

Then; I was aware of many angels increasing in the space next to me, crowding in to my left side and beginning to draw around me, even pulling at my wrist. Hundreds there, they pulled me into the centre of their enormous crowd and I heard the Lord say these were His angels of direction. Those we read about in Exodus 23. God says listen to your angel of direction and do what he tells you as he goes ahead to prepare the way we should go in accordance with Exodus 23.

I realised these angels were beginning to mark my skin with their ‘fingerprints’ – so that we the Church would know which way to go. Leaving a permanant imprint.

I heard the Lord say this:

“I am sending legions of angels for those who will say ‘Yes’ to moving with Me in this hour.

“To those who hear the call, I say now MOVE! Move and follow Me into the unknown.”

IT’S TIME TO MOVE!’

For some of us it’s a physical and geographical move. For others it is a change of career or relationship move. Many will see this word resonate and highlight the need to move from places and positions of safety and security that are not of the Lord. Listen to the Lord speak to you personally about where He is moving you.

He is saying to us to move away from the conformity and comfort and move into the openness of the unknown He is now leading us into.

OUR RESPONSE:

We say yes Lord to Your call.

We say we will move!

We will count the cost and follow You Jesus.

I say “Yes” to moving with you and following you Lord Jesus whatever the cost and whatever it looks like. Wherever You go; I will go.

Prophecy of the Lord shutting down opposition and amplifying our voice (GPS #51.1)

Just to ensure all readers understand my personal opinion throughout this pandemic of demonic origin: I am opposed to Christians being muzzled by the ‘prince of the air’.  [NB: 1. this Hebrew year/decade (5780+) is symbolic of the mouth and holy utterances. 2. For informative news-feed on masks visit Spirit Body Soul on Facebook.]

Last April, Australian Christy Johnson had a vision of waves of awakening and opening wells and brought a five-fold prophetic word and prayer strategy. It came with personal recommendation of a pastor whom the Lord had instructed in December to watch how He builds Church!  Therefore, he is now serving the Lord in setting up and teaching on how ‘new church’ will look and operate. Upon hearing last night of his meeting another leader to discuss if/how believers may lose their salvation, l ‘saw’ a pillar-like cloud of fire ‘attending’ today’s meeting.

Therefore, I particularly note Nate and Christy’s reference to that Numbers 14:14 pillar in the 6th paragraph of In September God is shutting down the opposition against your mission & message and amplifying your voice. It was posted yesterday and begins:

‘A year ago, I released a word titled “In the next 30 days exchange the muzzle for the war-cry” leading up to Rosh Hashanah where God revealed to me that He was revealing ways people had been muzzled and how He was bringing freedom and deliverance leading up to the new Jewish year. Last week the Holy Spirit reminded me of this word and said, “The same muzzling spirit is afraid of what I am leading my church into – it’s her hour of action & amplification!” 

‘God is dealing with some spiritual assignments that have been opposing you and I and that in the month of September we are in a window of time where God is dealing with the things that are causing you and I to be muzzled and opposition in a time that our voices need to be heard. I feel the urgency on this, that in September we are partnering with God in prayer and intercession over the body of Christ and the nations that we would see these areas of bullying and opposition broken….’

PS 4/9: Upon re-reading I’ve realised how it ties in with the next post and so, both are 51st example of God’s ‘GPS’ acting in Australia, England and Scotland in first days of this month!.

An era is ending

Bette Cox has drawn attention to what she heard from the Lord 5 years ago for it resonates with the latest delivered by Thomas Harry, thereby reiterating the importance of both items. Also, its reference to closure of the age of Grace accords with Jonathan Hill’s analysis in Unlocking the Biblical Watch.

Esther's Petition

“But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.” (I Cor. 14:3 NIV)

A teacher once told our Sunday School class that prophecy today isn’t authentic unless it does one of those three things, and therefore it would always be pleasant or positive. Since the main subject of that day’s lesson was something else, I gave her comment little thought. I didn’t know much about prophecy at the time, Old Testament or New Testament.

Then one day I read Acts 21:10-14. The passage describes a prophet named Agabus, who came down from Judea to give Paul a prophecy about his upcoming trip to Jerusalem. It wasn’t pleasant or positive. “Coming over to us, he took Paul’s belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, The Holy Spirit says, ‘In this way the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem will bind the owner of this…

On the Mysteries of the Kingdom: God-incidence #1 – maths in scripture!

Having seen another profound paper from pastor Thomas Harry I’m led to precede my introduction to it by reminding ourselves of the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. (It is purely for information but I thank those who may wish to read the links.) Thomas kindly responded to my intention with,

“Your style of Intro is perfect and encourages people so I am full of support for it, rather than just a link. I enjoyed the link on mysteries, also was a blessing.”

A MATHEMATICAL GOD-INCIDENCE

Four years ago a series of overviews on the growing rapprochement between science and scripture were featured on this blog. It included a particularly peculiar ‘coincidence’ between my Summer-time reading and a physicist’s blog entitled Pure, Breathtaking Mathematical Beauty, which centred around ‘The Euler Identity’. What’s amazing is I’d already read how that same formula is hidden within the Hebrew and Greek of the first verses of the first chapters of Genesis and of the Gospel by John!

Therefore, I blogged on this news in Astonishing Mathematics; the conjunction between Creation, Gospel and Science? and introduced ‘Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John’ by Jonathan Hill. A continuation was posted after re-blogging Joanne Rolston’s Number 153, Signs & Symbols (whom Jesus personally encouraged to venture into His mathematics!) and more details in A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed.

That post also considered the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain – which is rather trite. When using that term, even eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality, as quoted and discussed in that posting.

That blog continued by quoting Jesus on holy mysteries, as at Matthew 13, which we’ll revisit in ‘God-incidence #2’.

Hopeful yet warning word for 2020 and beyond – restructuring!

I’m grateful to my friend Geoffrey Pick of UK Prophetic Words when discussing Yinka’s vision of 2016 for reminding me about and permitting republication of this prophecy which describes unexpected, radical changes 2020 has seen thus far.:

PROPHETIC WORD FOR 2020  – AND BEYOND

I saw a big city. Many high rise buildings that had been standing for a very long time suddenly collapsed and crumbled. In place of those disappearing structures I saw new buildings emerge instantly and very quickly. I felt there was going to be an exchange of structures and functions. This could relate to business, economy, political roles and much more.

The year 2020 will bring upheaval and powerful, swift emergence of new things. Long-established structures will crumble suddenly, not because of external destruction but because they have been in a state of decay for too long. In their place, new ‘towers’, buildings, positions, organisations and people will rise up quickly and with great strength.

This will cause a lot of disorientation to those who are used to the old structures and who are unprepared and undiscerning. It will, however, not be a big surprise to the people who walk very closely with God. They will have anticipated this according to Amos 3:7 “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets”.

People will generally struggle with disorientation as many landmarks they have used as reference points will be gone and other structures will be in place. The people of God, however, will have an opportunity like never before to reassure, give guidance and introduce God’s divine compass. Many people will listen to them, however those with severe pride and hard hearts will dismiss them and continue to try and find their way in their own strength. This will trip them up, injure them and the consequences will be severe in some cases.

Dead religion will feel more cold and carry the air of dark, icy death more than ever. Superficial religion will cause people to feel sick as if having eaten too much candy floss which pleases the taste buds but does nothing to nourish the body. True worship and the places of gathering where true worship is lifted up will have a new warmth and light that is more recognisable and distinguishable than ever before. Those who are hungry and humble of heart will flock to these places and cause the light to glow brighter and warmer.

This is a year of intense separation, and those who have camped on the middle-ground for a long time will find that it is no longer comfortable but utterly dangerous. The middle-ground will split and darkness will starkly separate from light, causing a deep trench to be created. It will be dangerous for those who refuse to choose. Even for those who choose blatant darkness there is greater hope of deliverance as the people of God will seek to establish flexible bridges to enable a crossing from darkness to the light. Those who have been camping in the middle, refusing to move, will fall into the trench which will widen and deepen fast. I saw the trench floor covered in tar pitch which will hold people down very powerfully and cruelly. It will be very, very challenging to leave that place.

Wrong priorities and choices will be a lot more costly in the days to come. Right, God-breathed choices will bring great blessing and reward. Dependence on the Spirit of God for EVERYTHING is absolutely vital.

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” 

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” 

Revelation 22:12 “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

Susie Molina, 31st December 2019

Note:  Revd John Kilpatrick was instructed by the Lord: “Tell The People There’s No Middle-ground Any More!” in February 2017.

Vision of a great shaking and revival coming to New Britain – 2016

The close of the previous post refers to an extremely unusual ‘coincidence’ concerning Mabel Boyd, a sister at The Gate, Reading, and whom I knew years ago during my attendance there. As she says, “It’s so good that God knows our names!”

Upon returning to my desk last Monday I found an unexpected tranche of messages in the working group for setting up last February’s One Voice Prophecy conference. They begin with Mabel’s copying the text of her pastor Yinka Oyekan’s prophetic vision from four years ago. I asked about the reason for raising it and she replies:

“The prophetic vision came up on my facebook. I decided to take the time to re-read the post. I was deeply moved by the contents. I sometimes look at older prophetic words to see if they speak of what is happening in our nation now. I see this vision as prophetic in contents. I believe this word is active at the moment.”

Upon reading Yinka’s vision I realised it needs republishing as a development upon mine of 2004 – but then got bowled over when Mabel’s name popped up unexpectedly, when about to publish that post!! SO, the Lord’s confirmed it’s TRULY ‘ACTIVE’ and a ‘NOW’ WORD!!!

In its first publication on this blog I mused upon it being what the Pentecostal preacher-healer Smith-Wigglesworth and, 50 years later, his prayer partner Norman James may have seen of Britain in full Revival Glory (as told here):

A PROPHETIC VISION OF THE UK

There is a shaking coming to this nation unlike any that has been seen in a generation. A fulfilment of many prophetic words. God is about to move in ways that will cause the foundations of Hell to shake and the pulpits of the churches to rattle and some to be replaced. The normal acquiescence to what are considered cultural norms are about to shift.

I saw in a vision Father and He had stood up and was calling out the names of His sons and daughters, and pointing to the Cross and they came running to Him. On the streets of the UK, scales were falling off their eyes and many had a change in their countenance as they heard His voice and stood in His presence. They were transformed into courageous prophetic individuals fearless and willing to hold leaders and brothers and sisters to account.

I saw that it is not just political organisations that will be shaken in this season. I saw ecclesiastical structures and organisations being shaken. I saw crowns falling and thrones being removed. A grass-roots call for the church to return to the word of God and its foundational truth will take hold as believers become desperate for a Christianity that is authentic whilst embracing, kind but honest, pure but forgiving, reflecting of true holiness and unwilling to betray the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I saw city after city in a revival of a love for Jesus as the Glory cloud descends. I saw in the vision intercessors suddenly burning brighter, as if the Lord had turned the dimmer switch to its brightest setting, they became like glowing ones, like the angels. I saw in this vision flames of fire raging through the heavens as the tongues of prophets became like tongues of fire, a holy fire.

I see a deep conviction coming upon the church about its moral laxity and complacency, and I see the bride of Christ released from her constraints as Father’s love descends and takes a hold of this United Kingdom. And then I saw the streets filled with multitudes worshiping God with tears and with hands raised in exultation as the orphan spirit over the nation was broken and the nation turned once more to her Father in heaven.

“When Lord?” I said when I saw the vision and He said,

“Soon son, soon. Tell My people to prepare their hearts so that on the day of My visitation they will stand, and tell her leaders I want My church back, and tell My sheep in this outpouring that started in Reading, it’s them and their sons and daughters I wish to empower. So come to the waters and drink.”

Prince Yinka Oyekan, 16th July 2016

Notes:

For more see Revival in Reading: 1,200 People Turn to Christ in Just 3 Weeks

Upon visiting Yinka’s Facebook and church website The Gate, I noticed they meet in the building previously used by Tilehurst Free Church (Baptist), which was planted by Carey Baptist in central Reading. I attended TFC from 1990, was baptised by Revd Barry Kirk and stayed until marrying my dear Nina in 2002, thereby moving to East Hants.

This reminded me of a vivid ‘flash image’ I had in a service at Meadway in the mid-90’s of a nuclear explosion but in reverse! It was about the time most Reading churches started praying together. I understood the image to mean the Lord’s power would unexpectedly explode but it would come inwards to the town and thereby get concentrated.

Let it be so Lord…

A Declaration over the Church in this New Season – Passion for the Nation

Click image for Facebook and previous declarations

CHURCH

“As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.”  (James 5:11 AMP)

We thank You and praise You for the work of Your Spirit in our lives through this season, we thank You for the new mantles You have given and for every new desire, method and strategy You are releasing from Heaven. We speak the release of every ministry into their God-appointed place and position – and we declare in this day: God’s people will live out of the fullness of the blessings received through Jesus Christ.

We come into agreement with Your word in Joshua 1, “I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses,” and we call God’s people into a new season of walking the land. We call forth those who pray for the streets and the communities, we call forth those called to bring healing to the land and we call forth those called to reopen past wells of revival and transformation. We declare the fullness of the Father’s love and His Kingdom’s purpose of peace and righteousness will be released across the land.

As Lockdown eases and the ‘new normality’ begins, we thank Him for the greatness of the plans and purposes He has for individuals to partner with Him to bring awakening to this nation. We stand in our true identity as the children of God and we decree and declare the power of the resurrection life of Jesus will overcome every work of the enemy seeking to delay, rob or destroy.  In the Name of Jesus, we declare over individuals, ministries, businesses and churches: this is the season of re-set, restoration and restitution, and we decree new levels of faith and hope will arise upon His people.

We declare His grace is sufficient, and we speak the release of finances, resources, strategies, and connections that every Kingdom plan and purpose will be fulfilled.

 

NB: We have posted some new videos onto our YouTube channel. I would particularly like to recommend one called – A Legacy Key – which is a useful aid in understanding the Christian heritage within our nation, and a set of three – A Tale of Two Systems.  This set looks at the fundamental differences between the worlds systems and the Kingdom of God.

Necessity of an End before a Beginning! – Steve Hepden

THERE HAS TO BE AN END BEFORE A BEGINNING

Whether it is a new beginning, new day, or new season many are sensing, or wanting something new to happen. If we are in a pause there must be a reason, because it won’t last forever. Could it be that God is saying things to us about need to change, or at least be open to change? Perhaps it’s more an interruption than a hesitation, and it has pushed us out of whatever we think normal is. Many of us have been stressed, disturbed, shaken and stirred; we don’t know whether we are we coming or going.

New words have appeared such as Zoom, which many of us have used in our communicating to others, even to other parts of the world. A dear friend of mine living in New Zealand spoke by Zoom to a church group in Cyprus and had some join from Scotland, England and France. That wouldn’t have happened before Covid-19, because most of us had never heard of Zoom!

We do have a propensity to stay where we are with what we have in the old and the traditional, or it could be that in moving forward we attempt to bring a few things with us that should stay in the old, but letting go of ‘things’ for many of us is difficult. Yet God is saying, “I’m going to bring good out of this, and do a new thing.” The response by the religious leaders in Jesus’ day was, “We’ve always done it this way!”, but that statement contributed to His death. They didn’t like change; they didn’t want change, so they resisted the purposes of God.

When the Church began in an upper room with a tornado suddenly appearing inside the room, and if that wasn’t enough flames of fire landed on the peoples heads, with every one speaking in languages they had not known before sounds quite bizarre, but it was the magnificent manifest presence of God doing a new thing. These wonders of God were a sign, that pointed to Jesus and thousands came into the Kingdom through the ‘New’ Birth. If that kind of manifestation happened at the beginning of the church, what is going to happen to us in these days? I say, “Lord do what you think is necessary to fulfil your purposes.”

When Jesus said, “It is finished”, He meant it. We want to go into the new, subtly or stubbornly hanging onto the old. New means new, which says to me, ‘you’d better let go of that which will only hinder and undermine the new.’ What John was writing about in chapter One of his Gospel was a New Creation. The old had gone, the new had come. God came down incarnate in Jesus to be with us. The New Age, the Kingdom of God was announced; it was a new beginning!

There has to be an end before a beginning. That could mean us finally dealing with ongoing issues in our lives, the stuff that has hung around afflicting and condemning us.

When Jesus cried out on the cross “It is finished!”, He meant it, for everything concerning Him was accomplished, including the fulfilment of the hundreds of prophecies that spoke about Him. What was finished in the past, is still finished in the present, and it will remain finished in the future! Not only can we live in His finished work, but we can also live in the new beginning of the His resurrection, because it is this, that makes Christianity so different from religion, for we worship a real, living person not just a few dead principles to live by. God is preparing us, and changing us, so that we will respond and cope with whatever He brings to fulfil His purpose. I’ve come to far to look back. x

Kingdom mysteries – Jesus points to mathematics

[First posted 6 April 2018 as A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed]

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

Definition: ‘Mystery’, Greek musterion (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’ [New Spirit-Filled Study Bible]

The above, ancient meaning of ‘mystery’ is rarely understood and appreciated, even by those solidly grounded in scripture. As told in my testimony, my pre-Christian life got immersed in that esoteric knowledge, and so I’m experienced in this matter and can attest that the difference between that discipline and holy revelations from the Almighty is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

Word of Discernment: The battleground has shifted – Abel Praise

After having posted the transcript on Monday of Veronika West’s hearing from the Lord, “Get ready, get ready! For the stage is set, for a Spiritual Showdown is about to take place in this land!”, it is significant that the following two-part Facebook posting was published the next day by a Nigerian brother:

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED I

The Enemy Thinks He Is Attacking The Church By Lengthening The Time To Halt Gatherings; The Church Thinks The Enemy Is Attacking Her By Trying To Stop Her From Gathering. The Kingdom Sees It’s At The Threshold Of A New Era; And Needs To Accomplish The Overhauling Of The Living Systems That Has Entrenched Perversion; And Will Accomplish This Through The Ignorance Of Religion and Perceived Wickedness of The Enemy. At The End Of All These, Those Who Hear The Voice, The Shepherd’s Voice, Would Have Hoisted The Flag Of The Kingdom For They Know That The Battle-Ground Has Shifted; And New Territories Are Being Contested In This Hour For The Next Phase of Kingdom Advance.

THE BATTLEGROUND HAS SHIFTED II – THE BATTLEGROUND OF THE ARMIES

The battleground has shifted; while in Egypt; they didn’t need boots, spears or weapons of war; they had amongst them ministers that spoke, taught, encouraged them in their assemblies to believe and have faith that the promises of their deliverance and a deliverer would come through; but when the battleground shifted; their ministers/ ministry shifted; they now needed to be kitted up for war; they had to; and had transitioned into The Battleground of The Armies. Armies are those equipped with the authority to pull down and rebuild territories. The Battleground of The Armies would equip them and get them to recover the authority, heritages and weapons of war because they were coming into a new phase; the tearing down of territories and their rebuilding of territories according to heavenly blueprints.

Those who didn’t understand that the battleground has shifted cried to return to the old normal; those who discerned the shift and walked forward into their new battleground like Joshua and Caleb believed for conquest.

We have been fed hope in the days of hope; but we must discern that the battleground has shifted; and are now in the battleground of The Armies – this we already see in the enemy attempting to wield authority to tear down state-structures and rebuild them into his way – but those who walk through this; discerning the shift and peeping into the wisdom of The LORD will be equipped in this critical hour for the tearing down of strongholds and rebuilding the cities of their inheritances measured out to them.

The Battleground has shifted – Out of The Battleground of The Armies; the authority to tear down and rebuild cities will be gained. Who will wield this authority in your city – The Righteous or The Perverse?

Background

Abel Praise writes at The War-Room Ministries: Kingdom Military Missions and I’m aware that Veronika values his insights and Biblical interpretations of prophecy. He provides the following details about this word on the battleground:

“The Origin Of The WORD:
It’s The WORD The LORD shared with me in time of fellowship; more so, it has been built up through series of things The LORD had shared with me over recent months to build a new understanding within. I usually see them as my teaching moments with The LORD; because it’s taken a number of dreams, visions, insights in time of fellowship; so I put out a great deal of understanding that several experiences had brought to create a perspective of the what’s ahead.

Veronika West’s post was a big boost and gave that A-HA moment; so it’s worth making reference to. I do not yet know if I will be allowed to put out all of the dreams, visions and all; but one critical experience I had in the midst of this season; and in all The LORD had shown concerning Covid19 moment; was an instruction in one of the dreams where The LORD said to me; “I had been given responsibility to prepare people concerning The Covid19 season the nations would walk through”; and that is the point from where The Posts concerning The Battleground shifting began to be released yesterday (Tues). I trust that with this; the perspective will be clear in your heart and the divine flow will be seen. Once again; I am humbled by the commitment to the work entrusted to you; and your reaching out to me.”
