LATEST on Brexit delay

Posted 15:40hrs (per Telegraph Online Live News, emphasis mine)

‘Theresa May will ask European leaders to delay Brexit after John Bercow’s bombshell intervention plunged Britain into a “constitutional crisis”, Downing Street has confirmed.

‘Following a prolonged Cabinet meeting this morning, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said she would now write to Donald Tusk “in relation to an extension”.

‘Whilst they refused to say how long a delay she would request, it is understood that Mrs May will ask for an extension running until 30 June, which could be extended if a deal has still not been ratified by Parliament…’

That date fits closely with previous post prophecies regarding 9 months October 2018 to July 2019 delay -see Fear Not – Watch Next 4 Months.

Prophetic painting of the Lion and Eagle, with Big Ben!!

“Trust in Me! I go before you Great Britain and MY WILL BE DONE!”

This striking picture by Yvonne Coombs was painted under holy inspiration and, according to Veronika West, she had NOT seen the words she’d posted the previous morning (and which featured in my Tuesday blog). Therefore, first read Veronika’s note posted Tuesday evening, followed by Yvonne’s account of painting TWO pictures:

‘This morning I shared how during a time of prayer for Great Britain I heard the Lion of Judah Roar and then I saw the Great Eagles Rise And Soar, And then I heard the Spirit say, “WATCH THE LION AND EAGLE SHALL ROAR AND SOAR IN THIS LAND AND THE TWO SHALL COME TOGETHER AS ONE”

‘CHECK THIS OUT; Yvonne Coombs was led to paint this incredible picture today and had NOT SEEN the word I posted this morning, she has only just posted this picture of the LION AND THE EAGLE…! 

“GLORY TO GOD, AMAZING HOW HE CONFIRMS HIS WORD THROUGH HIS MANY PROPHETS AND PROPHETESSES….!”

So I did check it out right away and contacted Yvonne for permission to publish. It’s so  marvelous how things of the Lord work out because, upon going to this blog’s Facebook (business-type page) on Monday, I’d found a brand-new layout design with junk I could easily clear. Yet I noticed it included a personal profile for me that I’d never used as it wouldn’t link into the blog’s Fb. And this layout included Messenger, which I’ve also never needed to use, but on Wednesday morning I found I could do so and sent a  message to Yvonne. An answer was soon forthcoming.

Six hours later, during my half-hour drive from the south coast, I recalled the above painting and wondered about its origin, but especially if Yvonne had previously seen the ‘fiery’ picture of Big Ben appearing in a couple of my postings, as herein.  As I was about to ask via pc, an incoming message sent about the time of my driving expressed her surprise, “Wow I haven’t seen the Big Ben ones and there’s fire on one like mine. . Hallelujah”.  She soon recounted her story, which she’s kindly allowed me to share:

YVONNE’S ACCOUNT OF TWO PICTURES

‘I awoke with a vision yesterday morning [Tues 12th] of Jesus’ blood all over the earth – yet, the UK was His main focus in this particular painting as I saw Big Ben alone – and He put His finger in it and it rippled out.

‘I just had to start painting, but when I thought I had completed it, I couldn’t see any beauty or how to explain it. My husband asked why I had painted chocolate and I could see his point!

‘Then I sat back and sought the Lord and said “I don’t like the outcome, have I got this wrong?” Then as I looked again in a prayerful focus, I was suddenly shown the vision of what I needed to do and saw the parting of the sea. I was so excited that within half an hour, it was transformed.

‘The following morning [Wed 13th] was when I was shown the revelation of why my vision began this way and yet had to be changed, and I am in awe of God’s love and patience over us, that His stirring of the blood into ripples is His way to show He has prepared this land and is preparing this world for His mercy to be revealed and the rippling has moved the people to remember Him and seek Him in a deeper way, that we as a world have become stagnant in and of His sacrifice. He has gone before the Nation (just as he revealed by underpinning the painting with this revelation), and is going before all the Nations to stir up our remembrance of His sacrifice and to give His great Mercy and grace, so that His desires and plans come to pass!

‘The final piece was the parting of the waves and though I’m not political, there is a message of UK coming out of Egypt, that the fire is revival of hearts and Big Ben is anointed with oil from heaven. The clock shows it’s the eleventh hour or close to midnight as I have painted both hands the same size and perhaps He’s left us to wonder on this!

‘The white horses come from another word I had released on ‘Sanballat Arising’, that the horses are the saints who are running wild and unafraid, that the fire on them is the Glory Carrier Commissions that shall be spread throughout. Veronica West reminded me she did a word on the Monarch butterfly, that it represents Royalty. So it’s well-worth looking that up, and the butterfly represents the transformation we have been readied for and have now come into.

‘I painted the eagle and lion either side of the hand of God, for they represent our Lord and us, that in this time He has anointed His chosen ones who have sought His face, to a deeper level of sight and height as the eagle and have heard and seen the roar of the lion over many months and this roar has opened the heavens toward Great Britain.

‘These are the words I was given over this painting, “Trust in Me! I go before you Great Britain and MY WILL BE DONE!”

I note Yvonne’s reference to Jesus’ blood “rippled out” and to “ripples” because I’d seen similar last October, but not of His blood, as in Vision of ‘ripples’ across and radiating out from Britain.

More on Leviathan and ‘coincidental’ 40th anniversary of EU’s ‘Snake’

Fascinating example of synchronicity or ‘God-incidence’ in view of today’s developing news on Theresa May once again facing defeat in the Commons, and what Deborah Orgill kindly emailed a fortnight ago with a couple of follow-ups, which I’ve been saving for now in view of tomorrow’s historic significance. On that last, Deborah writes,

‘I saw your post Update on Vision of Snake in Parliament yesterday (26 February) and thought I should share…

‘In that article you mention 3 things: The snake, Leviathan and “the more at stake.” In 2015, these were the exact same phrases the Lord used to reveal the issues I was facing in a situation that involved the marriage break-up of an American friend. In short the Lord told me that the problems we were facing, “the more at stake,” were because of the unseen operation of Leviathan. I was given Psalm 74:14 and Isaiah 27:1:

“You crushed the heads of Leviathan. You gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness.”…..”In that day the Lord will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
With His fierce and great and mighty sword,
Even Leviathan the twisted serpent;

And He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.”

‘Once Leviathan’s head had been removed by the Lord, by His Word, he becomes food for the people. The removal of the head releases wealth. Because of the startling similarities between your post yesterday and my 2015 circumstance other instances came to mind and I began to see a pattern based on what the Lord had previously said to me that explains, “the more at stake” and the role of the snake, Spirit of Leviathan.

‘For the UK right now this spirit is standing against the wealth, the harvest the Lord wants to release in this season to the UK by withstanding Brexit. Please note wealth or harvest is not just about finance. This can be seen in the following 2 points:

  1. Through 2 consecutive dreams 29/30th November 2014, The Lord told me He wants to bring the USA and UK together, but the enemy is withstanding this. This is one of the reasons for the fight over Brexit. Today, I am “switching on the lamp” as to this reality.
  2. Last year, Chuck Pierce came to Betty King Ministries in Wembley, London and delivered a prophetic word for London and the UK. In it he says, “Something the Lord tried to do 40 years ago He is trying to do now.” On 15th November 2018, Theresa May said at the Draft Brexit Agreement Press Conference at 10 Downing Street, “Trying to renegotiate something we have been in for 40 years wasn’t easy.” I believe the two are related.

‘We joined the EU 43-45 years ago, but on 13th March (March 13th 1979 – March 13th 2019) it will be 40 years since the European Monetary System (EMS) was created, of which the UK became a part in 1990. The EMS was created to replace its predecessor and was the metamorphose of “The Snake in the Tunnel”, the aim of which had been to limit fluctuations between different European currencies by essentially pegging all EEC currencies to one another in order to be a force against THE AMERICAN DOLLAR. We withdrew from the EMS or EMR on black Wednesday in 1992, did not join the European Currency and now want to leave the EU altogether.

’40 years later to the day since the day of the EMS’ creation, the 13th March ‘happens’ to be the date when MP’s will be given the choice to vote on ‘no deal’ and extension, should the Prime Minister’s deal be rejected on 12th.  Effectively, “40 years later” we would leave the European Monetary System and be free to work with other nations and currencies.

‘This is the war we are in right now This war is over the natural and spiritual wealth and harvest that the Lord wants to channel through London as the financial capital of the world for this next move of God. It’s time, by rapturing faith, to leap over the walls, as in Psalm 18:29, that the enemy Leviathan has established to try and keep us bound (that is, tied into a monetary system that does not allow us to make the connection, nexus with the USA) so that we run until we see that river of finance and wealth flowing through the City of London out to the nations of the world to enable the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth.

‘A final thought. The word Stake in the “more at stake” often refers to wealth and finance. It is a boundary-denoting word. This far and no further!

More Thoughts:

‘Although Britain did not join the EMS in 1979, it was the British politician Roy Jenkins who was not only instrumental to us joining Europe in the first place, but also overseer of the creation of the EMS.  His domestic reforms are also revealing as to the spirit behind his politics. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality. Here’s a quote from his ‘obituary:

“Roy’s second cause was Europe. Without his ceaseless advocacy, it is doubtful whether Britain would have become a member of the European Community. He did not have an easy time as Commission president from 1977-81, but the overall balance was certainly positive. I would rate him third in terms of effectiveness after Hallstein and Delors. His major achievement was to launch the European Monetary System, the forerunner of EMU and the euro.”  (See Jenkins: death of a passionate pro-European)

‘Critics, particularly those in the 1980s, said that Roy Jenkins had introduced what they called ‘the permissive society’. During the 1980s, Margaret Thatcher and Norman Tebbit tended to say that he was responsible for a lot of the social problems that Britain had at that time, through his legislation. (See Roy Jenkins, Europe and the Civilised Society)

‘The recent defecting labour and conservative MP’s [‘The Independent Group’ – RB] were likened to the gang of four 1981 only last week. We are in the time of Roy Jenkins again 40 years later: abortion controversy here and in America, defecting MP’s and Europe.’

More on Leviathan – an Irish Connection?

‘This is what I heard today (1st March):

‘In Psalm 74, Leviathan was behind Egypt against Israel. Today, antisemitism is against Israel. Behind the antisemitism is Leviathan, which as we have seen is in Parliament. The Irish border back stop issue is Southern Ireland and EU supporters of the Palestinians antisemitism and all that means against Northern Ireland supporters of Israel. The head has to come off Leviathan to break that spirit and feed the people. Was Roy Jenkins anti-Israel? Was the EMS set with an agenda to enforce the political aims of the EU which are anti Semitic?
‘Repentance is needed from us regarding the 1967-1969 liberal legislation and 1979 EMS, then we can ask the Lord to do Isaiah 27:1.

(3rd March) ‘The word is, “If we will repent of the 1960’s legislation and the EUropean Monetary System, the Lord will take the head of antisemitism (Leviathan) off our nation and we will align properly with Israel and then the inheritance harvest will come.” 1 Chronicles 7:14.’

‘Thanks for reading. Many blessings’

Deborah Orgill

Also on 3rd March I noted this telling quotation Iain Duncan Smith (former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions) uses to begin his op-ed For too long, we have swallowed lies about the EU (emphases mine). He takes journalistic licence to stress the doubling of decades between our entry to the EEC and its deceitful goal of totalitarian control:

“The people must be led slowly and unconsciously into the abandonment of their traditional economic defences, not asked.  So wrote Lord Thorneycroft in 1947 about the plan for a European Union, and in so doing he expressed the growing belief of the political class that this was a pursuit of the ‘greater good,’ which would become the hallmark of successive governments down the years.  Yet there was something else those words indicated, that in pursuit of this greater good, the political ends would always justify the means.

What has followed in the intervening 80 years has been a collective deceit about the purpose of the European project. This can be seen in decision after decision taken on issues concerning the EU.

‘Even now after losing the referendum, the political establishment’s Project Fear narrative of economic Armageddon is as narrow as it was in 1973.  One only has to look at the disastrous negotiations to join the EEC in 1972. As Sir Con O’Neill, the leader of the negotiating team said, the overriding principle guiding the UK team from the top was, “swallow the lot and swallow it now.” Which attitude led to the last minute and tragic abandonment of the UK fishing industry. Much of our manufacturing industry suffered a similar fate in our desperate haste to sign up to the ‘greater good’...

He concludes, ‘In 2016, the British people finally saw through the deceit and voted out. Surely for those of us in Parliament, delivering on that vote isn’t just about leaving the EU but also, as importantly, it is about returning accountability to our politics and honesty to our governments.’

STOP PRESS – LATEST NEWS (16:45):

‘Brexiteers and the DUP have rejected Theresa May’s deal as Geoffrey Cox warned the UK could be trapped in the backstop indefinitely, despite changes secured by Theresa May from Brussels last night.

‘In a significant blow for the Prime Minister, the Attorney General said “the legal risk remains unchanged”.

Update on vision of snake in Parliament – with latest news

Note: first drafted mid-January but not published because of number of other posts on the Parliamentary chaos. I’m grateful to Ann Dennis for bringing this pertinent, amusing video to my attention last Thursday on RJ Dawson’s The Future is Now…:

“I expect you either saw or have been told about a recent TV advert for The Times Newspaper. Just in case, I confirm the Ad shows the Chamber of the House of Commons filled up with various animals where people would normally sit. Amongst the animals are two very large snakes slithering over the benches. The advert ends with the entrance of A UNICORN and A LION striding towards the despatch box. The lion begins to lift his magnificent head and ROAR AND ROAR. Not the norm for an advert, especially for a newspaper. It must have been SUPERNATURAL. Haven’t seen it a second time. Interesting! Praise God, He IS IN THE HOUSE.”

I responded: “ACE! Thank you Lord and Ann, as this is news to me because we avoid all tv adverts…As I respond to you from my WordPress ‘dashboard’ I espy a short list of draft blogs, and the topmost is ‘Update of vision of snake in Parliament’. AND as I’m not blogging as usual today because of dental and medical appointments I was wondering what and when to post next.”  [Note, normal process for replying is via email notification connecting into WP notifications in drop-down side-bar, not the full-screen ‘desktop’.]

An article in The Drum about this new publicity campaign explains,‘The Times and The Sunday Times has launched a new campaign that portrays politicians as animals in ‘Westminster Zoo’ as the publisher tries to reinforce its commitment to keeping readers informed in confusing times. Capturing the current mood of the nation, the ‘Politics. Tamed’ campaign anthropomorphizes politicians as animals in a similar vein to Orwell’s Animal Farm…Reiterating how it is newspaper’s jobs to ‘tame politics,’ only the lion and the unicorn – from the crest in The Times masthead [RB: using the Royal Coat of Arms]  – can bring order to the proceedings.’

This makes the THIRD example of the press inadvertently following modern prophecy, as we saw last year in ‘Outfoxing the Remainers’ – see Urgent: ‘Fox in Hen-house’ (ie. Parliament) Prophecy Reiterated) and last month here.

Now, my update written 16th January followed by this afternoon’s news: Continue reading

An Ideal Parliament

This post bridging ‘the Pond’ brings an informative, brief discussion that well serves my coverage (GPS#12) of the historical background to the internationally famed document limiting a sovereign’s ‘divine rights’, as well as its proposed Spiritual Magna Carta

All Along the Watchtower

The Westminster Parliament appears to be tearing itself apart. The current turmoil resembles the time before party whips came to play the role they do today. In the old days, parties were not stable: a leader could not depend on the votes of other MPs and Lords as a matter of course. Much of the time, a member of the legislature had to be persuaded or cajoled into voting in favour of a proposal.

NEO ran a post at his blog, yesterday, commemorating George Washington. The post is well worth a read. In particular, I was struck by George Washington’s dislike for political parties (especially on the basis of geographical divisions). He knew history well, and he was a true patriot. He desired that the people would be united and that faction would not lead to tyranny. Struggles, he contended, can lead to people placing their faith in one man:…

Decree & Declaration over Church & Government

We join and stand in agreement with Passion For The Nation’s publication this morning of the following (issued under heading ‘Government’, which I’ve extended as above):

Click/tap image for link to Passion For The Nation and previous declarations

“The remnant lifts up its voice with a joyful shout. From the west they praise the majesty of the Lord Yahweh, and in the east they give glory to the Lord God!” Isaiah 24:14

Lord, we declare in this season a new desire to praise and to worship will come upon Your people, that the sound of the Name of Jesus will arise, transforming atmospheres and touching lives.

We decree and declare in this season, the church will carry and model Your message of reconciliation and unity into our nation with power and sensitivity, that all communities divided through religion, culture, social status and political opinion will be healed in Jesus’ name. We decree, destructive past experiences will be replaced by new positive ones, that respect will replace hatred and love replace fear.

We declare in this nation, a new level of unity and “oneness” is being released, so in the Name of Jesus, we speak over the separation between the indigenous British church and the spiritual sons and daughters from other nations within the UK that the love of God will overcome every personal and cultural divide, that all giftings and callings will be honoured, welcomed and utilised.

We declare Apostolic and 5-fold ministries within the land, the leaders of streams, of spiritual houses and denominations will recognise the significance of the times, standing together and moving together as respect, honour and trust increase between them.

We declare a new spirit of love and co-operation will rest upon all generations to work together and we call forth the spiritual mothers and the spiritual fathers, in the Name of Jesus.

Now Lord, we thank You for all those You have positioned within our Parliamentary System for this time, irrespective of party allegiance. We speak Your strength, Your wisdom and Your mantle of authority upon them, that Your voice will be heard clearly sounding above and beyond every other voice.

We decree and declare over every secret discussion, debate and vote in these days, the boundaries, borders and sovereignty of this nation; judicial, legislative, physical, spiritual, political and economic will be marked out, established and concluded according to God-given Kingdom purpose and timing.

We declare the Cabinet, Government and Opposition parties, will work shoulder to shoulder, as God-given direction rises above party allegiance, political agendas and personal preference. We stand in Your grace and we declare a fresh alignment of the words and thoughts of our leaders with Your will, that Your plans for this nation will be established.

Spiritual nature of Brexit vs. EU battle now exposed to the world

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

Last night’s news of Donald Tusk’s outburst against Great Britain makes for an unusual follow-up to a reader’s recent enquiry about decrees and declarations. Therefore, I can but conclude:

As President of the European Council and speaking in his official capacity in a conference with the Irish Prime Minster in Brussels yesterday, Donald Tusk spoke out and publicly promulgated an utterly despicable curse from his written notes (ie. a declaration made from a decree), not only upon those who promoted Brexit without having made safe plans for its completion but also and by implication upon every British citizen who voted to leave the E.U.!

(I’d thought to insert a copy of his ‘tweet’ here, but that would reiterate its impudence.)

THE GLOVES ARE NOW OFF! THE EU’s FALL DRAWS NIGH!

Resorting to slander shows the EU’s now lost the ‘discussion’ – lock, stock and barrel. Moreover, they confirm the real spiritual nature of the current Battle for Britain.

Prophetic words and visions of the demonic evil behind today’s Tower of Babel are now demonstrably accurate and fully vindicated by this exposure, not only of its President’s heart but also of this totalitarian institution’s leadership. (Read Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next EU?? and the Fulfilled Prophecies #10 sequence.)

Clearly, the Lord is allowing this outrage to inform the British public of the real, spiritual nature of the European Union that underpins its legal, political and financial structure.

What’s more, I believe the curse is, or even has been, reversed as foretold in two separate words of prophecy that were brought last year. I’ll reiterate those at the end of this two-part blog.

Tusk’s outburst – endorsed by EU Parliament’s Negotiator – demonstrates Britain’s best interests are served by being completely separate from the EU – without any Irish ‘backstop’!

Today’s report from Brexit Central upon the event reminds us the EU is fundamentally anti-democratic – and corrects the EC President’s faulty memory:

‘What an extraordinary day it was in Brussels yesterday. Leading most of the papers today are the incendiary remarks made by European Council President Donald Tusk yesterday at a press conference alongside Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. At the end of a relatively short statement, Tusk opined:

“By the way, I’ve been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.”

‘Never mind the deeply undiplomatic nature of the comment which unsurprisingly drew much criticism, it was also totally untrue. While David Cameron and George Osborne may have irresponsibly refused to allow the civil service to prepare for the eventuality of a Leave vote in advance of the referendum, plans were drawn up by others. As Dr Lee Rotherham reminded us here (Change or Go, dispels pernicious myth no work done on Brexit), on BrexitCentral in 2016, there was Change, or Go – the seminal publication from Business for Britain which ran to more than 1,000 pages. Its subtitle, “How Britain would gain influence and prosper outside an unreformed EU”, provides the clue to it being exactly what Tusk claims did not exist. Or there was the 2014 publication, Cutting the Gordian knot: A Road Map for British Exit from the European Union, written by Rory Broomfield and Iain Murray. There were many others too.

‘There’s no way that this was an off the cuff intervention from Tusk. It was clearly planned. If you watch him making the remarks on our video, you can see him referring to written notes while he said it. And he then happily tweeted he words out afterwards (prompting an equally inappropriate response from MEP Guy Verhofstadt, which makes our Tweet of the Day below).

‘And then to rub salt into the wound, at the end of the press conference, Varadkar is caught saying: “They’ll give you terrible trouble in the British press for that”, to which Tusk replies: “Yes, I know” and laughs. What on earth was he thinking???

‘Moreover, many of us had already been offended by some of the earlier contents of Tusk’s short statement. Aside from the contradiction of declaring the Withdrawal Agreement “not open for re-negotiation” while demanding that Theresa May offer a “suggestion on how to end the impasse”, the former Polish Prime Minister also reminded us of the EU’s arrogant attitude to referendums which deliver the “wrong” answer.

‘Having claimed that “a very great number of people in the UK… wish for a reversal of this decision” to leave the EU, he lamented: “The pro-Brexit stance of the UK Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition rules out this question… Today, there is no political force and no effective leadership for Remain”.

‘Some might say that the definitive result of the 2016 referendum rules out a reversal of the said decision. Call me old-fashioned, but when a parliament organises a referendum to ask the people a question, is it not duty bound to implement the answer it is given? But of course, that’s not the EU’s way of doing things. When Denmark rejected the Maastricht Treaty in a 1992 referendum, they had to vote again in order to approve it. It was the same with Ireland and their Nice Treaty referendum in 2001. And when the French and Dutch electorates rejected the European Constitution in 2005, it was merely cosmetically repackaged as the Lisbon Treaty. And when the Irish rejected that in 2008, they had to vote again in order to give Brussels the answer it required. All a salutary reminder that the EU is not so much undemocratic as anti-democratic.

‘Back to yesterday’s events and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also repeated that the Withdrawal Agreement is the “only deal possible” and “not open for renegotiation”. Speaking alongside Varadkar after his meeting with the Taoiseach, Juncker specifically rejected the will of the House of Commons as set out through the Brady amendment when he declared that “alternative arrangements” could “never replace the backstop”. And in order to ensure Tusk did not enjoy a monopoly on offending we Brits, a picture emerged of Juncker and Varadkar posing with a large novelty “Thank You from Ireland” card evidently sent to the Commission President, with Juncker’s office letting it be known that it contained the message “Britain does not care about peace in Ireland”.

‘All of yesterday’s antics were all the more extraordinary because of their timing: today Theresa May is heading to Brussels for meetings with Messrs Tusk, Juncker and Verhofstadt on the back of last week’s Commons votes and the Whitehall talks that have been considering alternative arrangements to the backstop.’

Further Reading:

The Telegraph’s international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard’s Parliament Beware: the Backstop and EU Political Declaration are a double-trap makes essential reading for its historical background:

‘BE very wary of any EU codicil, protocol, or soft law memorandum offering assurances on the Irish backstop. Either it safeguards the UK’s sovereign prerogatives and free agency, or it locks the country into a perpetual legal arrangement as a regulatory captive without voting rights. It is one or the other. No fuzzy compromise on this legal point can exist.

‘The 1713 Treaty of Utrecht still holds force – to the eternal irritation of Madrid – because it is extremely difficult to abrogate. “You cannot get out treaties unless there is a ‘denunciation clause’ or by mutual agreement,” said Lorand Bartels, a law don at Cambridge.

‘NAFTA, NATO, or the WTO, all have escape clauses. That is why Donald Trump can threaten to tear up everything. The Withdrawal Agreement does not. It is sui generis. (ie one of a kind)

‘No large country in modern peacetime history has ever signed a treaty document of this kind yielding fundamental sovereign powers for ever. The insolvent king of Spain agreed to the Treaty of Utrecht and the loss of Gibraltar only because he had been defeated in the War of Spanish Succession.

‘We already have the hard lesson of the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, the so-called Christmas tree of rights dismissed at first by one Europe minister (Keith Vaz) as “no more binding than the Beano or the Sun”.

‘The Lisbon Treaty later gave the Charter legal force under the European Court (ECJ). This created a clutch of aspirational economic and social rights that clash with Common Law practice…’

‘Brussels needs to do something because risks are rising. Europe is suddenly in a rougher predicament than anybody expected, hence Mr Tusk’s talk of dispatching Brexiteers to a “special place in Hell”.

‘The eurozone is near recession with no monetary or fiscal defences. It faces the escalating risk of an Italian debt crisis spreading to French and German banks. A no-deal Brexit has become very dangerous for the EU as well…

‘Lest we forget, the backstop is not the only landmine in the withdrawal package. The supposedly non-binding Political Declaration keeps the UK subject to the Acquis on the environment, labour law, taxation, competition, and state aid. Non-regression clauses make this law impossible to repeal even where its manifestly harmful.

‘Paragraph 132 states that the ECJ will have the final say on disputes. This extends the legal capture of the Withdrawal Agreement into the future relationship. Paragraph 135 establishes a punishment mechanism, with fines for breaches of the accord. It sets in train future fishing quotas…’

Bearing all this in mind, especially the point about the EU’s financial crisis and possible collapse, we’ll look at other pertinent prophecies and dealing with Tusk’s curse in the next post > > >

The present impasse over Brexit

Further to the previous, a new static page Brexit: The Present Impasse is now available to read.  This commendable article comes by courtesy of Dave Chapman, author of EU – There Is An Alternative, is a useful summary of the background leading into the latest non-developments.

Dave correctly identifies the major source of the impasse as being the personal views of around two-thirds of Members of Parliament who prefer Britain to Remain tied to the EU.!! He writes,

‘It should be said that if Democracy is to stand up in our Country, Remaining in the EU – after the Referendum – should never have been an aim or even a possibility by any MP.  They all should have got behind  the vision for Britain separate from the EU after 29th March 2019. They were elected on that basis!’

Another Isaiah verse and vision for UK: ‘shroud over Parliament’

We continue considering visions of Britain’s Parliament in turmoil with a third sent to me  yesterday.  First, let’s quickly refresh our memories (all emphases mine):

15th Jan (Brexit Must NOT Be Allowed To Fail) – ‘This is what I read today in the news concerning Brexit. “Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement was voted down 432-202, the largest defeat for a prime minister in the history of the House of Commons”  As I was reading this I saw a vision of grappling hooks being shot over from Europe to England to pull the country back into the E.U. Britain must be totally free from the E.U, or, I feel, that it will share in the judgement that is coming to Europe. Additionally I saw in this vision Theresa May standing at her podium looking out. As I saw her looking out I saw a very large snake slithering up and down the rows of the House of Commons. I feel in my spirit that this snake is fear and deception and I do believe that this has to do with the rise of the antichrist and an independent England would greatly hinder his plans…’

24th Jan (Biblical Precedent Relating to Britain’s Constitutional Crisis) – ‘Revisiting the words on ‘Spirit of Herod’ brought by Veronika West I prefaced them with an email from Rosemary: 

‘Catching up with your posts, I read about the picture of the snake in the houses of Parliament, and now know why I was given Isaiah 27:1 a day or two ago:

‘In that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish the Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay the reptile that is in the sea.’

30th Jan – Rosemary emails ‘Another Isaiah Passage’:

“On this mountain I will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations…” (Isaiah 25:7)

‘I felt led to this passage and, after contemplating it, I had a dream of the shroud being like a huge piece of knitting; the knitting – which consisted of lots of pieces joined together – was not well-produced and was full of holes. Underneath were masses of writhing people who had their arms and legs stuck in the knitting; the more they struggled the worse it became. God of course, promises to destroy the shroud, and if he can lead his people out of Egypt after so many setbacks He can do the same for Great Britain IF we are praying, repenting, seeking his mercy.

‘This made me think of the Brexit schemes, so as with the previous Isaiah passage I wonder if this ties in with anything you have received.’

Watching only very few scenes of the recent mayhem in the House of Commons, Nina likens it to ‘hell on earth’, and so this from our friend in the south-west aptly describes the situation but promises a much better, blessed outcome for the United Kingdom.

Rosemary’s dream, however, reminded me of a picture accompanying Veronika West’s report of 29th January on ‘A Terrifying Dream’, wherein she perceived that denizens of hell can see heaven, but those of heaven cannot see into hell.

It is a deeply salutary reminder of the truth about hell – and of the dream wherein I learned I was about to be consigned there, but saved by Jesus himself. So, here’s Veronika’s account:  Continue reading

UK Situation Summary #2 – Suzanne Ferrett on this season of opportunity for Christians

Suzzanne Ferrett kindly permits me to republish this from Passion For The Nation. She posted it as an informal chat on the message she’s been teaching for the past couple of years.  Yet it’s timely in my own considerations of prophecy and politics arising out of a personal challenge to my referring in Cranmer to the Lord’s mind on Britain and the EU. Your attention is drawn to Suzanne’s outlining differences between Britain and Europe and to our laws in particular, further details of which may be found in two footnotes.: 

I thought with all the confusion and the noise of the challenges in our nation right now, It would be good for me to explain why I believe this is a season of huge opportunity for the Body of Christ.  Let me take a moment to explain why.

I am aware that even with the promises of God that we stand on the brink of huge revival, many are still struggling.

Background

My whole journey with praying and speaking into government, began with a number of revelations God gave me around 2015 and the beginning of 2016, when I moved with my husband to Windsor in Berkshire, not long before the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta.  At that time, with several other ministers, we called a Convocation to celebrate this document, which had never been overtly successful, yet had shaped our nation and the nations for 800 years.

During that time, God showed me how the roots of our nation, Government, justice system, democracy, institutions and way of life are based through the Magna Carta on Christian principles and foundations. The Magna Carta itself was not totally original, but drew on the Law Code of King Alfred, a Christian who is often called the first King of England, although that title should really go to his grandson.

At that time, as we looked backwards to celebrate the past, I felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit to look towards the future, and we released a decree about the rising up of a governmental army, who would through their prayers govern in the spiritual realm above natural government. At that time, I felt God said, what we “have seen in the past of Godliness in this nation is only a shadow of what is possible in the future as His people rise up and take their place.”

Around that time, I also felt there would be a void in government and that would be the time when the Ecclesia would arise!  (In my book Declarations to Change a Nation – published 2016)

About a month later, in July 2015 God spoke to me clearly in the words of a poem:

‘It’s the day of clash of Empires,
It’s the Day of the Clash of Sounds,
It’s the Day of the Clash of Spirits
as they seek to take the ground,
The no-man’s land of England will become a Battleground,
The forces are preparing, The swords are being ground,
I’m calling to my church now to listen to the sound.’

This speaks of a spiritual battle in the nation, which is affecting many areas of society, and right now is sitting very squarely on our Government.

It is very clear from the gospels, that Jesus was really concerned that the “yeast of the Pharisees, Sadducees and Herodians” did not infect His church. Those three groups, the religious, the wealthy and the political, have historically held the power in many nations, and the key word is power – which is so often, the DNA of the world systems.

What is God doing?

I believe God is shaking nations, because it is the beginning of a new era.  When things are stable, change is difficult, but great shaking has the capacity to bring great change, therefore as everything moves, there is room for the establishment of something new – which right now, for simplicity, I will call the Government of the Kingdom of God.

Resounding above all the noise is the Kingdom call. A day for the Kingdom to come in all its glory and fullness, embracing the call for salvation, but also bringing righteousness, mercy, truth and justice to the earth. The DNA of God’s Kingdom is very different from the world’s systems and kingdoms, and yes, it is a Spiritual Kingdom, but it will touch and affect every part of society.

Jesus gave the coming of the Kingdom huge priority: pray “Kingdom Come” and “Seek first the Kingdom of God.”

The danger is that as everything shifts and moves, and changes take place, voids open up, and there is confusion and fear. But if God’s people will see from His perspective and stand in the assurance of His covenant and His blessings, we are those who have the potential to fill those voids with everything from love and hope, to the righteousness and justice of the Kingdom. Otherwise, something else will fill those spaces.

I believe what we are seeing in the shaking around Brexit, is part of the shift God is seeking to bring. The roots of Europe are different from ours. Their spiritual heritage is different, more based on the Roman model and influenced by Enlightenment thinking, and they have a different view of democracy.

The nations which hold the same values as ours, from the freedom of choice and the value of life, to the value of the individual, are those whose heritage roots back to the UK and to our political system.

What’s Unique about our Democratic System

It is because of the early roots through the Magna Carta and back to King Alfred 200 years before it, that our democracy is founded on the truth that there is a Higher Authority – God the Judge, the Lawgiver and the King. It means there are absolute truths which underpin everything else.

This is the foundation which has made us the nation envied around the world; the freedoms we have enjoyed, the expectation of truth and honesty, the value put upon life and the freedom of religious belief and more. The nations which were part of, or influenced by the British Empire, for all its faults, can still be identified by a similar, if eroding value system and interestingly, are also the only nations which carry all these values.

Other democracies are different.  I remember being taught at school that Democracy of itself carries the seeds of its own destruction. Without the understanding of that Higher Authority, Parliament is at the whim of the current flavour and belief of the people.
I have had people say to me that democracy is not Biblical, God wants a theocracy. I agree, however, a theocracy still needs a system to deliver God’s government. If you look at the book of Genesis, Israel went into Egypt as a family, they came out as a nation, but a nation with no laws, and no understanding other than their experience as slaves in Egypt.

God took Israel aside, He gave them a leader and through that leader He gave them laws, instructions and principles, but He told them to choose for themselves those who would be the Judges of those laws – those who would interpret and apply that law. For the United Kingdom there is a linking of some of those concepts; the coming of the Kingdom –  righteousness, justice and mercy –  in our nation is  linked to the battle for our democracy and the Christian heritage contained within it, but I believe the primary goal, is the increase of His Kingdom government in our land. (Peace and goodwill to the people)

A Question

How do we view our present situation, if the nation and parliament no longer recognise or submit to a Higher Authority?

I stand in amazement of what God is doing at this time. Coinciding with Him shaking our nation, He is shaking the church, and that means you and I are being shaken. We stand at the end of 500 years of the reformation and restoration of the church, the Body of Christ, during which He has been restoring New Testament truths and values to His people. Even in the past few years, we have seen the Father’s Heart message, the call for the church to go beyond its walls, the inner healing movement, restoration of the five-fold ministries to name a few, and recently the understanding of the word Ekklesia.

What is God doing now?

God is raising a people who know their identity, who know they stand positioned in blessing despite the situations around them, who know God is with them, that they are both kings and priests, and who also recognise and carry His heart for the people around them, crying out for a revival which will transform lives and situations.

And, there is fresh revelation into the prayer movement to know how to legislate in alignment with heaven, through declaration and decree. In this way, through the power of His people praying according to His will, God takes His place as the true lawgiver in our land.

A Parliament of Christian MP’s will never replace the authority of God’s Ekklesia.

The reason it’s been such a confusing season is that the changes God has been bringing to the nation, the Church and His people are all coinciding.

Why? I believe, it is so that we can go out and be all He has called us to be, we can fulfil the unique call on the inside of us – filling those voids of hope and need all around us, but also through prayer and declaration, aligning our government with His will and purpose for this time – turning the nation back to Him and discovering a new national identity.

One thing about our nation is obvious, we are called to lead and influence others. As we fight for our land, we are really fighting for the nations.

An amazing season of opportunity for the Kingdom of God.

Biblical precedent relating to Britain’s constitutional crisis

Some believe they heard the Lord likening Britain’s leaving the European Union to His dealings with ancient Egypt and the extraction of the Hebrew descendants of Jacob, aka ‘Israel’, from bondage therein.

Following urgent reposting of the ‘Fox in the hen-house’ prophetic words Veronika West had in June about a betrayal of Britain by a ‘spirit of Herod’, contributions from a couple of readers added more depth and so I’m collating all material into this posting for all to read.

This puts current events of our constitutional crisis into a more historical and Biblical perspective – and speaks formidably against those individuals who’ve fallen under that unclean spirit’s spell. I believe they’re unwittingly in a most invidious position.

Moreover, early this afternoon one of our friends in south-west England writes:

‘Catching up with your posts, I read about the picture of the snake in the houses of Parliament, and now know why I was given Isaiah 27: 1 a day or two ago:

‘In that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish the Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay the reptile that is in the sea.’

My Bible has this pencil marginalia, ‘ie. it twists and perverts’.  Also, I recall that ‘sea’ has a prophetical symbolism signifying ‘people’, or gathered masses, as their movement resembles waves of the sea.

SPIRIT OF HEROD

Veronika’s references to ‘fox’ were confirmed within days as relating to the actions of Dominic Grieve MP, but we need to realise her reference is symbolical. That is, it’s not him alone, because many MPs, even Cabinet Ministers, have been influenced by that spirit of Herod and come under its sway. Journalists call it ‘Project Fear’!

First, we look at only the specific words about that spirit and her explanation, emphases mine:

‘I hear the Spirit say, “Watch and Pray! The spirit of fear and intimidation is causing many to become spiritually paralysed. Fear not! For My Perfect Love now drives out all fear! My Kingdom is advancing….”

(Posted on June 10, 2018)…“A Spiritual Trooping of the Colours, the (Fox) Spirit of Herod over the Nation and a Divine Convergence Taking Place.”…As I looked at the fox in amazement, immediately I felt the anointing become so heavy and tangible, and then I heard the Spirit speak again to me saying, “Daughter look and see, for the spirit of Herod seeks to destroy and annihilate the Vision and Destiny of this Nation.  WATCH AND PRAY! For this cunning, crafty and treacherous spirit is now operating over the Government and the Church in this Nation!”

‘…I was praying in tongues, the Holy Spirit quickened to me Luke 13:31-32“And Jesus said to them, “Go tell that fox, ‘Look, I’m driving out demons and performing healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will complete my work.“  As I read that verse, I inquired again from the Holy Spirit what He was showing me and He revealed to me that the ‘Fox’ was prophetically symbolic of the spirit of Herod that is now operating over the Nation.

‘The spirit of Herod comes with the purpose and goal of total destruction and annihilation, this cunning and dangerous spirit comes at a time when a people, Nation or individual is about to reach full maturity, growth, purpose and Destiny.

‘The spirit of Herod hates anything good or godly, this treacherous spirit seeks only to kill and destroy destinies that are on the verge of blooming.

‘As I continued praying I began to see a powerful prophetic parallel unfolding before concerning the Nation and BREXIT.  I clearly began to see how this same spirit of Herod which came against the Destiny of Jesus, John the Baptist, Elijah (operating through Jezebel), Moses and Joseph is now operating over our Government and over the Church in the Nation.

‘This spirit of Herod is warring against the people of God in this Nation, and this Treacherous Spirit is contending for the Birthright and Destiny of Great Britain. This spirit of Herod is a GREAT THREAT TO THE Nation AT THIS TIME!

‘…Then the Spirit of Revelation showed me a coming together of mantles over the Nation…I kept hearing the words, “A divine convergence is now taking place in this Nation to combat the powers of the spirit of Herod that is over the Government and the Church.”

‘The Spirit then showed me again the Mantles of Moses, Elijah, Joseph and John the Baptist and how these mantles (Anointings) will now begin to emerge or converge in the days ahead.

‘As I continued to inquire of the LORD the Holy Spirit then lead me to the Book of Nehemiah 4…read how just as Nehemiah and his people began the work of rebuilding the wall, the spirit of Herod showed up in all his glory, threatening to destroy and dismantle the wall from being restored.  BUT!! Nehemiah being as bold and courageous as a lion he stood his ground against the spirit of Herod…was not going to be intimidated or threatened by the spirit of Herod.

‘…I heard the Spirit say, “The fox is moving in the Houses of Parliament.”  Then He likened to me the Houses of Parliament as a HEN HOUSE, and He said “Just as a Fox comes to the hen-house under the cover of darkness to scatter, to steal, to kill and to destroy, so the fox has come to the Houses of Parliament in this Nation.”  The fox is moving subtly and stealthily. He is cunning, crafty and treacherous not to be underestimated.

‘But then I saw the mighty one, the Lion of Judah enter the the hen house and He began to roar and the fox fled in great fear and never returned.’

SCRIPTURAL BACKGROUND

(Sue Prosser) Such a blessing and a real help to praying in the Spirit for this nation. After listening to Veronika West’s video from last June regarding the spirit of Herod and the fox I looked up the name Herod in a Hebrew dictionary. This is what I read:
חרד: The root-verb חרד (harad) primarily means to shake and secondarily to tremble with fear or to be “anxiously careful” as BDB Theological Dictionary puts it. It’s used to describe a mountain trembling (Exodus 19:18), being startled out of sleep (Ruth 3:8), trembling indignantly (Genesis 27:33), to come or go anxiously careful (2 Kings 4:13), or scare or terrify people into submission (Judges 8:12, Job 11:19, Jeremiah 30:10). The last two applications I found particularly interesting since in Parliament there are those who are seeking to terrify us into submission (ie the foxes) and also those who are being anxiously careful, not willing to take the risk of a clean split (the hens).

(R.J Dawson) Even though the following passage I include here was written years ago it dovetails with Veronika’s prophecy and describes the evil spirit she speaks of very well. There is much in this small description that can be applied to today’s current events and world scene. I have included the link to the entire article if any of your readers may want to delve deeper into the history of the Herod family and the impact it had on the world of our Lord’s time:HEROD (from the ISBE:)her’-ud: The name Herod (Grk: Herodes) is a familiar one in the history of the Jews and of the early Christian church. The name itself signifies “heroic,” a name not wholly applicable to the family, which was characterized by craft and knavery rather than by heroism. The fortunes of the Herodian family are inseparably connected with the last flickerings of the flame of Judaism, as a national power, before it was forever extinguished in the great Jewish war of rebellion, 70 AD.The history of the Herodian family is not lacking in elements of greatness, but whatever these elements were and in whomsoever found, they were in every ease dimmed by the insufferable egotism which disfigured the family, root and branch. Some of the Herodian princes were undeniably talented; but these talents, wrongly used, left no marks for the good of the people of Israel. Of nearly all the kings of the house of Herod it may truly be said that at their death “they went without being desired,” unmissed, unmourned. The entire family history is one of incessant brawls, suspicion, intrigue amid shocking immorality. In the baleful and waning light of the rule of the Herodians, Christ lived and died, and under it the foundations of the Christian church were laid.

I responded on Tuesday to R.J that the emboldened sentence, “connects deeply into what’s happening here and that there may well be a need for the people’s open revolt to remove all anti-democrats from power! The last time it happened under Cromwell saw a growing Biblical spirituality – so maybe we’re beginning to see the pieces of today’s jigsaw puzzle falling into place?”

(R.J Dawson) This keeps going deeper, Richard. I have been listening to Veronika in the above video as I also follow these leads. What she says about the Herod spirit is serious. Like other particular evil spirits, she says it attempts to keep something the Lord is about to birth forth from coming forth and will try to kill it before it happens, as did Herod the Great with the Lord’s birth. The Herod family continued to stay interwoven with what was left of the nation of Israel in the first centuries BC and AD and undoubtedly had a hand in its fall. The Lord told them what would happen if they did not repent. But the leaders of the Jews, both civil and religious, had essentially married themselves to the Herods and the Sadducees were well-connected politically and monetarily with Rome. These leaders, despite what so many of the Jewish people actually wanted, insisted on these evil political and monetary ties and rejected the Lord. I could say a lot more but this is beyond a book length subject. Suffice it to say that the apostle Paul also warned and then prophesied exactly what would happen, though in a veiled way, in his letters.It appears the same warning continues to go forth in this current context in that the Herod spirit shows up toward the end, to either defeat the good will of God coming forth as a new movement or Great Awakening, or be defeated. There is no in-between. The forces of evil are desperate, as I have relayed in my current post [re SCoTUS: Epic Battle Brewing], and are resorting to any means whatsoever to protect their interests and stave off defeat.

These typological details confirm the spiritual as well as political nature of today’s Battle For Britain and indicate its outcome will be to God’s Glory alone – Maranatha!
