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

“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”.
