Democracy’s Resurgence & Restoration of Sovereignty 23 June 2016 (credit+link to Archbishop Cranmer)
Guess it’s been a long month with my referring only now to the celebration of Britain’s Independence Day of leaving the European Union on 31st January 2020. However, and absolutely without any engineering on my part! – today’s date neatly fits this post into the earlier Yet again ’22’ pops up and Veronika West brings an insight on 02.02.2020!
LOL! Upon searching for that blog in my archive I see the number posted so far this month…22!
It’s been busy time on top of all those blogs. So my only action in regard to our leaving the EU was to re-publish Veronika’s vision of two days earlier of her being on-board a ship turning and heading into a New Day and New Dawn, as told below. I’m re-publishing with my added emphases to draw attention to the details and the way the vision was mirrored five days later by the Prime Minister in his speech on 3rd February – in a location deeply redolent with British naval history; the Royal Naval College in Greenwich!
‘For about a week now I have been hearing in the spirit a DEEP, DEEP sound of WOOD, LIKE WET WOOD that you would hear on the DECKS OF AN OLD SHIP, a deep sound of CREAKING, CRACKING AND MOVING…. it has come to me over and over and over again and every time I heard it I would see so clearly a MASSIVE SHIP MADE OF BEAUTIFUL WOOD, it was OLD AND BATTLE-WORN BUT I COULD FEEL THE GREAT POWER AND STRENGTH THAT LAY DEEP WITHIN ITS FRAME, this ship had seen many things in its time, fought many battles, some defeats but many VICTORIES, I could almost tangibly feel the wind and the moisture in the air and I could almost taste the salt on my lips, but as I stopped to give it my full attention yesterday I said, “Lord what is this?”, and the Spirit said…”THE NATION IS NOW TURNING TO FACE A NEW DAY AND A NEW DAWN”
‘….those words hit me hard and I felt such a rise within me and I could then tangibly feel the MOVEMENT AND ACCELERATION THAT WAS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE, but as the old ship was TURNING IT WAS SLOW AND VERY PRECISE, IT WAS FINDING ITS BEARINGS, FINDING TRUE-NORTH, the MOVEMENT FELT SLOW… BUT IT WAS TURNING!…I COULD FEEL THE GREAT WEIGHT AND POWER OF THIS ANCIENT SHIP AND THE WATERS OF THE SEA WERE CHURNING, WAVES WERE BEATING HARD AGAINST THE SIDES….BUT WE WERE TURNING!..then suddenly the sound of CREAKING AND CRACKING WOOD changed, and I could hear the sound of howling winds and the sound of voices many voices, COMMANDS WERE BEING GIVEN, and then I heard “RAISE THE SAILS, RAISE THE SAILS”, and then I could hear the sound of RIPPING, RINGING AND WHISTLING AND THEN THE SOUND OF A FAINT FLAPPING which quickly turned to the sound of A MIGHTY BLOWING AND I COULD SUDDENLY FEEL AN ACCELERATION AS THE MIGHTY SHIP TURNED AND BEGAN TO MOVE FORWARD…’(continue reading here).
Now, yesterday I received this excited email from Margaret H entitled the Ship Cartoons’ Extra Relevance:
‘Thank you for posting the cartoons and Veronika’s comment…The extra bit which I thought of straight away is the relevance to Boris’s speech in Greenwich on 3.2.20 (so hours after the cartoons and Veronika’s word about seeing the date of 02.02.2020) where he talked with passion about sovereignty, freedom and global free trade in particular.
Right at the end, he had the nation personified as a ship:
“There lies the port; the vessel puffs her sail…the wind sits in the mast. We are embarked now on a great voyage, a project that no one thought in the international community that this country would have the guts to undertake, but if we are brave and if we truly commit to the logic of our mission – open, outward-looking – generous, welcoming, engaged with the world, championing global free trade now when global free trade needs a global champion, I believe we can make a huge success of this venture, for Britain, for our European friends, and for the world.”
‘His reference to ‘there’ follows from what he’d just said about a ‘global perspective’, by which he clearly means something which is the opposite of globalism. It’s part of the taking us back to our ancient ways and true foundations as prophesied universally. He didn’t use those words, but the whole thing is implicit in the setting at Greenwich, looking up at the ceiling, his references to our maritime past, the freedom from tyranny etc. He stage-managed it in true Boris-style. I looked at the transcript of the whole speech on the government website as well as watching it.
‘Veronika saw the ship before Boris described it!
Margaret trusts her contribution “will cause others to rejoice as well”. The PM began his speech in the famous ‘Painted Hall’ of the Old Royal Naval College (known as ‘Britain’s Sistine chapel’) by directing his audience towards its ceiling (emphases added for ease-of-comparison with Veronika’s vision):
“It is great to welcome everyone here to Greenwich and I invite you first to raise your eyes to the heavens.
“The Vatican has Michelangelo. Greenwich has Thornhill who spent 20 years flat on his back on top of the scaffolding, so rigid that his arm became permanently wonky, and he’s left us this gorgeous and slightly bonkers symbolic scene that captures the spirit of the United Kingdom in the early 18th century.
“This painting above you was started in 1707, the very year when the union with Scotland was agreed – and does it not speak of supreme national self-confidence?
“Look at these well-fed nymphs and cupids and what have you. They are not just celebrating the Triumph of Liberty and Peace over Tyranny – the official title of the scene. This is the settlement of a long and divisive political question about who gets to sit on the throne of England.
“And it is visibly resolved as you can see in favour of William and Mary and the result is stability and certainty and optimism and an explosion of global trade propelled by new maritime technology.
“And above and around us you can see the anchors, cables, rudders, sails, oars, ensigns, powder barrels, sextants, the compasses and the grappling irons.
“In fact the only important bit of kit that is missing is Harrison’s sea clock – also exhibited close-by here in Greenwich and also commissioned in the same era, that allowed every ship in the world to determine how far they were from this Meridian.
“So this is it. This is the newly forged United Kingdom on the slipway: this is the moment when it all took off…” (Read in full here).
Therefore, we thank the Lord that once again a prophecy is validated not only by a news item but also through the location and content of our Prime Minister’s inspired speech. The prophetic vision’s final fulfillment lies in the implementation of the PM’s plans for our United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
