Great Britain in my Thoughts and Prayers 

Amen, and again amen Tony.

My Dreams and Visions

I pray for those affected by yesterday’s senseless tragedies that took place at Parliament. I pray that the Lord would bring comfort to those affected. I would like to add, however, that as I am typing this blog entry I am seeing a lion that had been lying down with both feet in front on the ground begin to arise from that position and was getting readyto roar. It is my belief that Theresa May has been chosen to lead Great Britain for such a time as this.

Amos 3:8

A lion has roared!

Who will not fear?

The Lord God has spoken!

Who can but prophesy?

Prophetic Scripture Update #1: Ezekiel – the UK AND USA as western Tarshish

Nero_6Morning coffee revelation again! It was Friday 24th February when I spotted this inside-page headline in my paper’s world news section: ‘Commonwealth Invites US to Join the Club’.  I grasped the unusual significance of this news immediately because it relates to a questionable claim I’d read 30 years ago as a non-Christian and relegated to the proverbial ‘pending tray’. It’s the notion of ancient Britain possibly being biblical Tarshish.

Invisible HandThe Invisible Hand, written from a secular standpoint by Victor Dunstan, gave me an intriguing introduction to Bible prophecy. What actually happened simultaneously with my fanning through its pages after receiving it as a gift was jaw-dropping. As a consequence, 15 years later I began following world events to watch whether or not they tallied with biblical prophecy – AND echoes of that mid-1980’s news re-appeared decades later on a couple of anniversaries of this blog – see The ‘Invisible Hand’ Reappears at Another Anniversary: Spooky! for the full story.

So this recent news I read a fortnight ago reminded me of one of the author’s claims and, although revisited during the EU Referendum, I’d certainly give it some credibility now.

MOREOVER, it cleanly clouts Obama’s threat to put “Britain at the back of the queue” in US trade negotiations into oblivion!!

That news in the Telegraph’s broadsheet is textual only, but Google gives a well-illustrated version of the print-copy in the (Canadian) National Post’s In a Project Backed by The Queen, Commonwealth Invites the U.S. to Become ‘Associate Member’. (A report for non-subscribers is now available online asExclusive: United States could become an ‘Associate Member’ of the Commonwealth’, the url for which uses an insightful earlier headline > http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/23/donald-trumps-love-royal-family-may-see-united-states-join-commonwealth/ – note: does not open in new window)

And surprise surprise! The Canadian version leads with a photo of Donald Trump and Theresa May – in her “Redcoats are coming” outfit – walking together along the White House’s colonnades. (Puzzled by my reference, then see Fulfilled Prophecies #16.)

How exceptionally appropriate is this news relating to the improved – and revolutionary! – relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States, especially when taking a possible Biblical aspect into the equation!

[Also very timely was Dr Sharon Stone’s subsequent mentoring day in Windsor on Jesus making Himself known as King in this season and that we’re coming into areas of His rule and our own role in dominion and authority. She defines ‘king’ as “The king whose word is law and obeyed is one who rules”, and in referring to George III and to Bonaparte, said “Revolutions come when people don’t listen to law eg. 2016’s insurrection in the USA and what happened here and in us, turning us toward heaven’s rule”.  I’d already drafted the previous paragraph’s wording – so maybe her points act as confirmation?]

How can this news relate to the Bible, you may ask?

emmaus-group-tarshishDo you recall reading on this blog about a possible connection between ancient Tarshish and Britain, especially with our global community of nations, or ‘common-wealth’?  Of these our previous colonies in North America are some of the oldest.

Check A Biblical Basis for Brexit, courtesy of The Emmaus Group, for a lucid case for the British Isles as the western descendants, if not original location, of ancient Tarshish.

Their case is based upon these texts: Ezekiel 19:2-3, 38:13, Isaiah 2:16, 66:19, Psalm 72:10. The Invisible Hand also has Jonah 1:3 but adds Ezekiel 27:12-26, Isaiah 60:9, 1 Chron 9:21 (with 1 Kings 9:26-27) and Psalm 48:7.  (Verses shown bold are usually regarded as prophetic, especially pertaining to the ‘Gog-Magog’ war.)

Note that the period in question is about 3,000 years ago, centuries before Classical Greece and Rome became established and later became imperial superpowers across the Near East. At this time of the ‘Greek Dark Ages’, the enterprising, sea-faring port of Tyre and its Phoenician civilisation had spread across the Mediterranean.

My study bible offers a noteworthy point on the geographical location of Tarsish under prophetic Ezekiel’s ‘Lament for Tyre’ (chapter 27) which states, (v12) “Tarshish was your merchant…(13) Jaban, Tubal and Meshech were your traders…” So too were Togarmah, Dedan, Syria, Judah and theland of Israel, Damascus, Dan and Javan, Arabia and Kedar, Sheba and Raamah, Haran, Canneh, Eden…Assyria and Chilmad. The footnote reads:

27:12-24 The most complete and extensive list of trading communities found anywhere in scripture. The list moves geographically from the west to east and shows an accurate knowledge of the commercial activity of that day.

27:12 Tarshish is generally identified as a city or territory in the Western Mediterranean, perhaps Tartessus in Spain.

In the Royal Commonwealth Society’s plan to open a branch in New York, its director Michael Lake would welcome bringing the United States into the fold as an “associate member”. To quote the report:

‘The advantage of the Commonwealth, Mr Lake said, is that it operates less formally than governments, as a loose arrangement that is furthered by common values and culture.

“It works because companies find it easier and more congenial to work in Commonwealth countries,” he said…”The Queen is our patron and I see her from time to time, and she makes it clear to me that the Commonwealth is a priority to her…”.’

It would, he says, further Britain’s ties with America with whom we have a common lingual bond and develop new connections between us – AND, in my humble opinion, may bring about a fulfillment of Old Testament scripture!

In fact, it would enable the ‘Bridge over the Pond’ already carrying Godly spiritual ‘traffic’ to bear business and political ‘traffic lanes’ as well.

Soon, the ‘lioness’ may have her ‘young lions’ all ‘present and correct’ in preparation for the prophesied End-times.

Journalist notices rushing, mighty wind in politics; confirming prophecies

Exceptionally astonished over morning coffee!

Just after sitting down yesterday in a local farm-cafe for morning coffee Nina tore into the crossword (literally!) and I dived straight into the Telegraph broadsheet edition. As usual, I aim for the centre pages’ letters and op-eds. Interested in others’ opinions first, I may then glance at the narrow leader column.

I could not miss this headline to historian and leader writer Tim Stanley’s coverage of Tuesday’s reception for religious leaders at Downing Street (tap image for link).:

tim-stanley-op-ed

FAR MORE astonishing, as at my underlining the copy, is this columnist’s confirmation of what some Christian prophetical voices have been declaring for some time about ‘changing winds’. He writes,

“…The age of political correctness is over, we agreed. A mighty wind is rushing over the political landscape“.

He opens, ‘How refreshing to hear a prime minister talk about their Christian faith, and sound like they mean it. Even I’ve been conditioned by political correctness to find it strange…

Theresa May said that people must be able “to speak about their faith and that absolutely includes their faith in Christ”…’ (emphasis added)

More on that in my next post, but in his article Tim refers to our godly history.

‘…the sweep of British history shows how Christianity has defined all of us, whether we acknowledge it or not. Christians banned slavery, eradicated child labour and established the welfare state. The language you use, the shape of your year, the ethics you live by – all are informed by the faith. Politicians struggling to find something to connect the nation in the Brexit era would do well to try the universal, timeless search for meaning through religion. …’

His closing call reminds me of the stunning open vision I had in 2004 of a rock (of Christ) that emerged like the Pennine chain out of the ripped fabric of society, one so rotten it’s like old, perishing sacking (as in my notes on Comments on the Collapse of Society).:

‘For far too long admitting that you are a Christian has been treated like a declaration of lunacy. Time to stop. Time for Christians to come out of the closet.’  (emphasis added)

Yes indeed it’s time we make a stand, because all it takes for evil to become endemic is for men and women of faith to huddle and hide away – but standing tall comes at a price, even in Britain!

Remember, however, the Lord has declared, “There is no longer any middle-ground”!

Later, I found email notification of the word Patsy Southway brought, The United Kingdom Has An Anchor, has a lead-section headed ‘March Winds’!  So the timing of Tim’s piece and its remark is far too coincidental – ‘God-incidental’ more likely!

Readers may recall other prophecies, especially in the past year, the main ones perhaps being:

The vital issue is whether or not we will see this prime minister stand on her word about freedom of speech, especially in view of what had happened on that day in a magistrates court not too far away!   This outrageous matter is the subject of the next post…

Prime Minister placed in position for a purpose

Thank you to ‘Lena’ for this informative guest post from her blog Placed for a Purpose. Let’s not forget that no-one anticipated a radical upheaval in our government bringing the longest-serving Home Secretary in 60 years, Theresa May, to Premiership. Surely the Lord’s hand was in it all:

I was fascinated today because whilst I was observing the news I looked at the name of our current Prime Minister and I felt I should go and check the meaning of it. Google came up with this,

‘Teresa is generally believed to be derived from the Greek ‘therizein’ (to reap, to gather in) and thus takes the definition of “harvester”.’

This is absolutely relevant to us today. There have been many prophecies as of late describing how we are as a nation on the brink of a national harvest. Yet this is not confined only to the UK but will rather be a global in-gathering. So it seems completely un-coincidental that we now have a leader whose name means ‘HARVESTER’. However another definition also came up for ‘Theresa’ whilst I was searching and this one was ‘SUMMER’. I also believe this is no coincidence either.

We have seen our society gradually decaying, the NHS in pieces, education behind other countries, a shocking housing crisis, widespread poverty and I could go on. However, this will come as a reminder, as a message of hope that we will come out of this winter and will enter into summer. We will of course have a spring first, perhaps it will be a cold one as many of them are but nevertheless we will see leaves and flowers start to bud. We will feel perhaps a different warmer kind of breeze and when the sun shines down it will fill you with warmth even if it is but only a moment.

In the end you know without a doubt that you are coming out of winter, there is no going back. Seasons always go in full circle. We can see this by looking at history, for example, the First and Second Great Awakenings. We have had our winter and we have paid the price of hibernating but now it’s time, it’s time to come out of the woodwork. It’s time to just take those small steps outside of your cosy little home and then you will realise that despite the cool air, wind and the rain there are a few flowers budding, the sun is appearing, the days are getting longer and the cold is becoming lesser. So let this be an encouragement to you that as we move into this Kingdom Age we know without a doubt that summer WILL come and we Will have a harvest very soon.

I believe our Prime Minister has been placed there for a purpose to bring about many things that are meant to be. I believe that we will see great improvements. I also believe that you and I were also placed on the earth for a time as this. There are no coincidences in God’s plans.

In emailing me Lena adds: ‘Let’s pray she even comes closer to God in all she does and knows him.’  Amen!

Paws 4 thought: Update on Midnight and Big Ben

Kitty - Paws4thort 5After yesterday’s early start to chauffeur a friend to/from Guildford I started summarising some dreams and visions of Big Ben striking midnight.

I closed with my off-the-cuff reply to ‘Tucson Tony’ asking for my ‘take’ on his dreams, but at the time of receipt I was very busy drafting. So I did a quick ponder…

I told him what flashed up as an answer: ‘My mediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now!’. Tony replied, ‘Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.’

BUT, I’d completely forgotten the content of our first-thing prayers that continue with the ‘Keep Praying & Bless’ cycle, as blogged last year. Yesterday we were at ‘Day 39’ for Cleethorpes and area (as well as locally) and part of the blessing for there is:

We bless you to be part of the Bride of Christ, to prepare for the day when He will come and fetch those who are waiting for Him’.

Now that’s what I call a ‘God-incidence’!

I trust you’ve had opportunity to note the feedback in the comments thread. Here’s a couple of them starting with Tim Shey’s subsequent remarks:

‘The photo of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben is significant. For some reason I forgot that Big Ben was connected to the Houses of Parliament.

‘Big Ben–center of time; Parliament–center of government. What starts in England will cause ripple effects throughout the world spiritually and politically. Brexit came first, then Trump won in the U.S.. Maybe Brexit will precede a U.S. exit from the United Nations.

‘More history: the English Civil War in the 1600s preceded the American Revolution in the 1700s. King James Bible in 1611–still very influential today. The Gospel preaching in Great Britain, especially after Queen Elizabeth I came to the throne, greatly influenced the spiritual/social/political formation of the American Colonies. The 1904 Welsh Revival preceded the 1906 Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles.

‘Again, after looking at the Houses of Parliament and the two hands pointing up to 12 on Big Ben: Parliament (spiritual and political government) and two 12s (a double anointing of government-influence): that is THREE WITNESSES OF GOVERNMENT–ANOINTED GOVERNMENT. The two hands pointing up (heavenward) to 12: heavenly government.

‘Prime Minister May meeting with President Trump was absolutely the Hand of God.’

[Tim re-blogged my post on her prophetically significant speech to the Republican Party.]

Clock from 4Signposts

In Pauline Watford’s contribution I’m reminded of a video that I had in mind after writing:

‘Derek Prince, when teaching on End Times before his death (24 Sept 2003 in Jerusalem – RB), said that God’s clock was standing at five to twelve!

‘And the Supernatural Clock Acceleration in Bob Jones’ hospital room on 6th February and 13th February 2014 (see YouTube videos) was said to point to the church being lined up with heaven’s time when the hands of the clock stopped at midnight. I believe the spinning hands indicated past time, stopping briefly at 8 pm. to indicate Jesus’ incarnation and his launching of the Kingdom on earth, then spinning round again and slowing at 11.50 pm. until they stopped at midnight.

‘And 6th February 2017 was Queen Elizabeth’s Sapphire Jubilee, if that has anything to do with it!’

Now it just so happens that 13 months to the day before posting Dreams and Visions of Big Ben…I’d blogged Body of Christ Being Accelerated to Sync with Heaven’s Time on 14 January 2016 about the very video Pauline refers to and quoted Gary’s Beaton’s insight to those events. Do please watch…

At  2:45 mark of Gary’s phenomenal account he refers to the synchronisation at midnight. (Read About his Transformation Glory Ministries.) After commenting upon the numerical significance of the timings he explains (6:30 mark):

“Twelve is the number of divine government …you’ve got a ‘synching’ up at midnight – another 12 – God was emphasising that His government is coming into the earth right now in apostolic power. We’ve never seen it – we’ve been talking for a long time about it coming…”

LOL – so we’ve now covered 13th…14th…15th…February – whatever’s next?

Watch out tomorrow!!

Dreams and visions of Big Ben at prophetical Midnight hour

In case anyone may not yet have read the two previous posts, or seen comments thereto, I submit for the record this chronological account of what I believe are highly significant visions and dreams about Big Ben together with perspicacious points from readers. I hope this brings clarification and I invite your prayers and weighing with the Lord.:

First, come with me into the recesses of this blog’s Prophecy Library as I unearth relevant data on the prophetical significance of Big Ben from 12 years ago…

2005

Britain was heading towards a terrorist outrage of multiple attacks upon London transport on 7th July.  American prophet Chuck Pierce noted that ‘Big Ben’, the clock nicknamed after The Great Bell topping Westminster Palace’s Elizabeth Tower, inexplicably stopped for 90 minutes on 27th May 2005 (see The Elijah List report).

chuckpierce[1]Chuck was making a through-visit and saw swords in the skies over London and so he called for 40-days of prayer, as on this blog.  A meeting in Bloomsbury was convened for the day after that period – 7th July – but it wasn’t held as that was where a bus was blown up. Revd Dr Sharon Stone and associate Martha Lucia were en-route, as reported on her Watchman Network. I recall Sharon describing how traumatised the policemen were to whom they’d ministered.

Here’s a compilation of the content of relevant blogs and comments for ease of reference:

2016

Tony Puccio 31 Aug – Big Ben: 

  • Blogs – ‘Shortly after posting the dream about England on 08/29/2016 I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile. Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged.  As to the meaning of this vision or why I saw it in haven’t a clue. I am praying about it though and will add to the post further revelation as it is made known.’
  • Charlie Townsend asks, “Was it midnight? If so that would signify a dawning of something new.” and Tony replies, “That is the sense that I got in the dream”. 
  • I comment, “…the vision may indicate the rumpus over invoking Article 50 to get out of the EU is going to torpedo Parliamentary activity and possibly change the way things are done. (Palace of Westminster’s clock tower is an integral part of this parliamentary edifice.) Interesting the face (one of four) is undamaged, which suggests that whatever happens the Lord’s plans for our nation’s progress continues unaffected.” [PS 14Feb: maybe 3 vanished clock faces represent 3 main political parties that have suffered through Brexit : Labour, Lib Dems, SNP!!] 
  • Later (27 Oct) I comment: “Further to private email thread below about visions of foundations to House of Parliament cracking and this post on Big Ben falling down, please note this incisive opinion from asst editor and leader writer of one of UK’s top newspaper’s on Parliament’s anti-democratic role in eroding freedom of speech.”

Lin Wills 1 Sept – I re-blog her ‘I Am Coming with My Power Like Fire’ (18 Aug 2016) in Visitation Time – a posting from UK Prophetic Words with my intro: “I’ve had an interesting correspondence with Tony Puccio about the following word’s possible application…I invite intercessors to consider and weigh with the Lord; and in connection with Tony’s vision of an incident at the Big Ben clock tower (as here), which may be a warning of attack or point to political upheaval…’

Rosemary Piercy 12 Sept – I told our long-time friend about Tony’s dream. She emailed,

  • “…Interesting in view of the picture I received some years ago of the Lion of Judah hovering over Big Ben; his huge paw was about to hit the clock face, where the hands pointed at 2 minutes to midnight. (I somehow knew it was midnight rather than midday).”

Moreover, I believe it’s now important to share more widely what Rosemary added. Upon phoning for permission to publish today she responded without any hesitation, “Absolutely! now’s the time!”…

  • “A few notes on the picture that hit me this morning. Someone whose opinion I value gave me a word a few weeks ago that I was a General in the King’s army; this morning I was led to read the story of Gideon again, and was reminded of his requests from God for signs. I then asked the Lord for a sign that would confirm whether or not the “General” word was true. After a short time a very vivid picture came to me of a huge bowl suspended on 3 chains above the Houses of Parliament; the bowl swung in the winds of secularism and resulting godless laws. I felt the Lord saying that this was a bowl of his wrath, which of course is a recurrent theme in the Bible – bowl, cup etc. This is not to negate in any way the positive prophecies we are receiving; many of us know that the spiritual atmosphere has changed, and we are seeing remarkable answers to prayer in our country. Nevertheless we are also called to repent, especially for what has happened in the churches, and I feel a huge urgency for this; we are in danger of losing the blessings if we are simply going to rest on the blessings. This is vitally important and I feel there is no time to lose; the bowl is tipping, and we could feel the results at any time.”
2017

Tony Puccio 12 Feb – Big Ben 2:

  • Blogs – ‘I’ve had several dreams concerning Great Britain. The latest was last night. In the dream I could see Big Ben and the hands on the clock’s face were both in the 12 o’clock position. I remember hearing the bong of the clock’s Bell sounding as well. That for the time being was the extent of the dream if I am given further revelation I will add it to this post.’
  • I re-blog with intro – “This second Big Ben dream given to Tony Puccio in Tucson, Arizona USA, indicates – even confirms – a clear connection between Britain and the powerful global words for 2017 that Revd John Kilpatrick received at midnight the weekend of President Trump’s inauguration! …”
  • Tony adds his comment herein – “It would seem that Britain’s Big Ben, being known the world throughout, is being used to sound the alarm, if you will, to other nations. Sounds like the Lord is going to use Great Britain to reach other nations for His Glory.”  I reply, “We trust so my friend, for that’s the main thrust of the massive vision Wendy Alec had in 2005 and many others since (here). Another favorite is ‘The British are coming!’ because we were present when Lydia Marrow brought it, as you may know from my frequent posts about it.”
  • Tim Shey comments herein – “London, during the British Empire, was the capital of the world. Maybe we could say that Big Ben is the centerpiece of London because Big Ben is the center of time. Big Ben is well-known throughout the world. Greenwich is also in London (Greenwich Mean Time).  The British Empire no longer exists, but there is definitely British Christian influence throughout the world. The two hands of the clock are pointing to the number 12. The number 12 means government in Biblical numerology. So now we have double twelves: maybe this means that there will be a double anointing of Holy Spirit government (influence) coming from Great Britain.” [Emphases added – hadn’t thought of this until I referred to 2005!]
  • Dave Chapman comments herein – “Richard, no doubt you are familiar with R T Kendall’s teaching in his book ‘Prepare your Heart for the Midnight Cry’. Am reading it – slowly – now, Dave.”

Today, as I prepare this compilation I draw Tony’s attention to Rosemary’s reminder on the previous blog of her picture of Big Ben and he asks for my ‘take’ on this and “What’s the Lord saying to you?”

Well I’d didn’t have time to even think and ask Him, but was just running with my spirit’s ‘gut instinct’ as a ‘joiner of prophetic dots’ (as Glasgow calls me). So I reply that I’m busy compiling this account and will seek Him later – BUT then get a quick nudge to add,

  • “‘…immediate thought as I type is, “It’s warning of the Lord’s Return!” ie. not long now!”
  • Tony replies, “Indeed! It would seem that the midnight hour is upon us.”

Click to look inside

So maybe we should take this very seriously and consider Dave’s prophetic pointer to Prepare Your Heart for the Midnight Cry: A Call to be Ready for Christ’s Return!

It promises to ‘help readers prepare their hearts in expectation, be watchful for the approaching move of God, and build a deeper relationship with Him.

‘In this Spirit-inspired teaching respected scholar and theologian R. T. Kendall uses Jesus’s parable of the ten virgins to describe the condition of the church in the last days.

‘Many Charismatics and Pentecostals assume that what we have seen in the one hundred years since Azusa Street is the final move of God before the Second Coming. Kendall explains that this is not so and reveals that a movement of the Holy Spirit, which is one hundred times greater than anything we have seen—indeed the greatest since Pentecost—is about to unfold. It’s time to wake up! 

What’s more, it may be helpful to consider several prophecies on re-aligning our clocks with that of heaven! If interested, try this search > alignment.

Readers’ considered comments would, therefore, be most appreciated…

Big Ben and Midnight

Houses of Parliament: courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

This second Big Ben dream given to Tony Puccio in Tucson, Arizona USA, indicates – even confirms – a clear connection between Britain and the powerful global word for 2017 that John Kilpatrick received at midnight the weekend of President Trump’s inauguration!

My Dreams and Visions

I’ve had several dreams concerning Great Britain. The latest was last night. In the dream I could see Big Ben and the hands on the clock’s face were both in the 12 o’clock position. I remember hearing the bong of the clock’s Bell sounding as well.

That for the time being was the extent of the dream if I am given further revelation I will add it to this post.

Today’s news: Israel’s PM Netanyahu meets British PM May

Received in the last hour from International Christian Embassy Jerusalem this video of a brief press conference at No 10.:

Note Mrs Theresa May’s particular pleasure at welcoming Benjamin Netanyahu,

“Prime Minister, I’m very pleased to welcome you here to Number 10 Downing Street, particularly and obviously in the year in which we recognise the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration – the UK remains a very strong friend of Israel…”

[Updates at: World Watch Daily]

As the ICEJ points out it was only on Saturday that a former official of Iran’s elite military leadership, the IRGC, bragged about attacking Israel (ie. Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps). The statement came amidst a large-scale test of Iran’s missiles and radar systems which was conducted in defiance of a stark warning from the US that such activities violate UN Security Council resolutions and would not be tolerated.

Invisible HandIt was watching that forces’ rehearsal in mid-1980s of storming Jerusalem that I was introduced (as a non-Christian) to the reality and accuracy of Bible prophecy!

Moreover, similar units of the Iraqi army were also involved AND at the height of the Iran-Iraq war – ie. whilst enemies!

ALSO, whilst a video of their combined manoeuvres was being broadcast in that BBC documentary it so happened I was thumbing through a secular book I’d been given that explained the whole background, as outlined in Welcome and Bio. Hence my keeping an eye on Iran.

Prophetical signifance of PM May’s speech in Philadelphia

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the AtlanticThis was unplanned. Below, I tell of my reaction to events a week ago today that are indicative of a spiritual ‘Bridge over the Pond’; and in writing now tell about pieces of an ‘invisible jigsaw’ linking our English-speaking nations.: 

My usual full blogging day last Thursday got a tad waylaid but I intended writing on our Prime Minister’s visit to meet newly installed President of the United States Donald Trump on Friday 27th January – and dressed like a ‘Redcoat’, as prophesied!

pm-may-and-trump

As with most folk, however, I didn’t then know she wasn’t going direct to Washington but to an engagement that day to address the ‘GOP’ conference in Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence was signed. I got excited in my spirit upon reading the very brief mention in my newspaper, but didn’t know why.  But when I started writing I began to comprehend.

I published Fulfilled Prophecies #16 “The Redcoats are coming! The British are Coming!” – We’re here! and, later that day, Tim Shey commented from the far side of the States (and stole a march on me!).:

“I was having some lunch earlier today and I was able to watch some of Prime Minister May’s speech to some Republicans in Philadelphia. I thought it was inspiring. She emphasized the special relationship that the United States and Great Britain have had over the years. I believe that the Lord will strengthen the relationship between Trump and May and the United States and Great Britain.”

I usually take a long weekend family break from blogging. Time online is kept very minimal but before we went out the next day I did something I don’t even do regularly – checked a Facebook page! I dipped into Veronika West’s and knew what she’d posted on Thursday had to be re-blogged. A quick ‘copy and paste’ did the trick and hey presto: visions of the mighty rivers of gold and silver and gold-cum-silver handshake was reproduced.

Tim later remarks on my copy of her post (emphasis added):

“This vision by Veronica West is either confirmation or answered prayer. The day that Prime Minister May came to the United States I was really burning up in the Holy Ghost—the Presence of God was very strong. The next day, the Presence of God wasn’t as strong, so I asked the Lord why it was so strong when Theresa May spoke in Philadelphia. A day later the Lord answered my prayer through Veronica West’s vision.

“Powerful things are going to happen throughout the world because the Lord is bringing the United States and Great Britain closer together.” I remember General George Patton back in World War II got in trouble for talking about the Anglo-American Empire (he probably should have said Anglo-American Alliance). There is definitely an Anglo-American Christian influence in the world.

Tim blogs at The Road, his latest book is Writings From the Road and his Facebook page is the first book’s title, High Plains Drifter: A Hitchhiking Journey Across America.

I replied that I believe Theresa May’s visit is directly related not only on a politico-historical but also on a spiritual level that plugs our nations back together, or as Sharon Stone and other prophets have been saying, realigns us with the Lord’s plans and purposes for us in preparing for His return – it’s nothing to do with the personalities! I’m certainly convinced all those changes were engineered by the Almighty to fulfill His plans – AND the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plans to His servants, the prophets! (Amos 3:7)

A year ago no-one in the public arena would have believed what was to happen in shaking and jolting our nations to bring a complete upheaval across two continents with two totally unexpected, brand new leaders yet prophesied by, for example, Revd John Kilpatrick (see Fulfilled Prophecies #7).

Meeting newly installed President Trump is the politico-historical relationship, whereas going FIRST to Philadelphia by invitation of the Congress and Congressional Institute starts her journey on the much deeper (and higher!) spiritual level of our two nations’ original identity akin to imperial parent and colonial child.

Moreover, considering the possibility of Britain being the western equivalent of the biblical people of Tarshish with her young lions, according to Ezekiel 19:2-3 and 38:13 (as here), then we could chuckle at a UK-US’ family bonding with Mrs May being a ‘lioness’ (mother) and Donald Trump as her lion ‘cub’. If that’s so, then who’s truly in charge??

PM MAY’S’ PHILADELPHIA ADDRESS!

Philadelphia’s Well-known Symbol: The Liberty Bell

With that in mind let’s consider some points among many that Britain’s Prime Minister May brought to the Republican Party conference, as recorded in the official transcript (as delivered) of her half-hour address.:

“For more than two centuries, the very idea of America, drawn from history and given written form in a small hall not far from here, has lit up the world.

“That idea – that all are created equal and that all are born free – has never been surpassed in the long history of political thought.

“And it is here – on the streets and in the halls of this great city of Philadelphia – that the founding fathers first set it down, that the textbook of freedom was written, and that this great nation that grew “from sea to shining sea” was born.

“Since that day, it has been America’s destiny to bear the leadership of the free world and to carry that heavy responsibility on its shoulders. But my country, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, has been proud to share that burden and to walk alongside you at every stage…’  She then gave a brief resume of many areas of British and American collaboration in international affairs.

 So it is my honour and privilege to stand before you today in this great city of Philadelphia to proclaim them again, to join hands as we pick up that mantle of leadership once more, to renew our Special Relationship and to recommit ourselves to the responsibility of leadership in the modern world. 

Change in America

“And it is my honour and privilege to do so at this time, as dawn breaks on a new era of American renewal. For I speak to you not just as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but as a fellow Conservative who believes in the same principles that underpin the agenda of your party. The value of liberty. The dignity of work. The principles of nationhood, family, economic prudence, patriotism – and putting power in the hands of the people.

“Principles instilled in me from a young age. Principles my parents taught me in the vicarage in Southern England in which I was raised….”

Change in Britain

In speaking of the changes in Britain, our new way of working with Europe, international role and a renewed ‘special relationship’, especially relating to security, she said,

“…we have chosen a different future for our country. A future that sees us restore our parliamentary sovereignty and national self-determination, and to become even more global and internationalist in action and in spirit.

“A future that sees us take back control of the things that matter to us – things like our national borders and immigration policy, and the way we decide and interpret our own laws – so that we are able to shape a better, more prosperous future for the working men and women of Britain….

“This is a vision of a future that my country can unite around – and that I hope your country, as our closest friend and ally, can welcome and support…

“It is in our interests – those of Britain and America together – to stand strong together to defend our values, our interests and the very ideas in which we believe.

“This cannot mean a return to the failed policies of the past. The days of Britain and America intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over. But nor can we afford to stand idly by when the threat is real and when it is in our own interests to intervene. We must be strong, smart and hard-headed. And we must demonstrate the resolve necessary to stand up for our interests.

“And whether it is the security of Israel in the Middle East or the Baltic states in Eastern Europe, we must always stand up for our friends and allies in democratic countries that find themselves in tough neighbourhoods too…

“It is why I join you in your determination to take on and defeat Daesh and the ideology of Islamist extremism that inspires them and many others terrorist groups in the world today. It is in both our national interests to do so. This will require us to use the intelligence provided by the finest security agencies in the world. And it will require the use of military might.

“But it also demands a wider effort. Because one of the lessons of fighting terrorism in the last 15 years or so is yes, killing terrorists can save innocent lives. But until we kill the idea that drives them, the ideology, we will always have to live with this threat…”

She then referred to the major international issue, to which subsequent behind-the-scenes top-level agreements have now been seen to bear fruit, as in recent posts on Syria and Iran attest (here and here – the latter nation of which I’ve been watching for 30 years),

“Yet ultimately to defeat Daesh, we must employ all of the diplomatic means at our disposal. That means working internationally to secure a political solution in Syria and challenging the alliance between the Syrian regime and its backers in Tehran.

“When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who – during his negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev – used to abide by the adage “trust but verify”. With President Putin, my advice is to “engage but beware”…

“We should not jeopardise the freedoms that President Reagan and Mrs Thatcher brought to Eastern Europe by accepting President Putin’s claim that it is now in his sphere of influence.  And progress on this issue would also help to secure another of this nation’s priorities – to reduce Iran’s malign influence in the Middle East.

“This is a priority for the UK too as we support our allies in the Gulf States to push back against Iran’s aggressive efforts to build an arc of influence from Tehran through to the Mediterranean.

“The nuclear deal with Iran was controversial…But the agreement must now be very carefully and rigorously policed – and any breaches should be dealt with firmly and immediately.”

Did our Prime Minister read this blog’s paper on Nationhood by Dave Chapman?. She said,

“Yet the most important institution is – and should always be – the nation state. Strong nations form strong institutions. And they form the basis of the international partnerships and co-operation that bring stability to our world.

“Nations, accountable to their populations – deriving as the Declaration of Independence puts it “their just powers from the consent of the governed” – can choose to join international organisations, or not. They can choose to co-operate with others, or not. Choose to trade with others, or not.

“Which is why if the countries of the European Union wish to integrate further, my view is that they should be free to do so. Because that is what they choose.

“But Britain – as a sovereign nation with the same values but a different political and cultural history – has chosen to take a different path because our history and culture is profoundly internationalist…”

In her conclusion Prime Minister May cited famous British and American leaders and once more referred to Philadelphia’s renowned history,

“As we renew the promise of our nations to make them stronger at home – in the words of President Reagan as the “sleeping giant stirs” – so let us renew the relationship that can lead the world towards the promise of freedom and prosperity marked out in parchment by those ordinary citizens 240 years ago…”

PROPHETICAL JIGSAW PIECES

1. That reference to “sleeping giant stirs” reminds me of a friend Lynn’s vision in 2001 of seeing a giant arise , which itself echoes the ‘Tommy Hick’s Vision’ of 1961 (End-time Ministries of the Body of Christ):

“When in Cornwall had very strong  impression…as if I was positioned at the south-west of Cornwall looking at the land mass of England, Scotland and Wales from the air.  In a moment I saw rising up from Scotland first, like the lid of a container with the hinge being at the extreme end of Cornwall, the “Body of Christ”.  Impressed that the ‘Body’ is everywhere and there are people ‘hidden’ who are so much part of it. I was then taken aback by the thought that it appeared to be like a sleeping giant rising up powerfully and suddenly.  The experience left me with hope and anticipation for what God would do in spite of how things appeared.”

220px-Paul_Revere's_ride2. A famous event before the American War of Independence has a specific relevance in the prophetic background to this renewed ‘special relationship’.  It’s the theme of Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride in 1775 warning “The Redcoats are coming!”, that shows up as part of the design across some ‘pieces’.

Let me briefly outline a sequence of personal events on this:

3. In reading the background to a Revival Alliance gathering held in September 2011 in London I learned that Revere’s ride had featured as prophetical inspiration at the gathering’s inception meeting held in November 2010, as shown here:

Paul Revere Refc

4. Although unable to attend that gathering I had a strongly related dream that was about the Kingdom of God being set up here in Britain, as retold on its 5th anniversary last year.

5. In Holy Week, April 2012 I came across two prophecies relating to the same theme of a holy horseman. One was written on UK Prophetic Words and the other spoken by pastor John Kilpatrick, as recounted in Get Ready!

6. A few weeks after the EU Referendum, worship leader Lydia Marrrow delivered a powerful prophetic word that closed with excited exclamations that, “The Redcoats are coming! The British are coming”. This directly quotes Paul Revere’s cries to colonial citizens during his midnight ride. (Read transcript.)

7. After giving that word Lydia explained her excitement,

“It’s such an honour to be here. In case you’re wondering why I’m so passionate about God pouring His Spirit in the UK, history tells us that the United Kingdom and the United States do not have Awakening apart from one another!” (A Linkage Between Awakening in the UK and the USA)

8. This eighth piece is that of last weekend’s reconnecting of the historical link between our nations after the past 8 years under ungodly rule.

Bringing prophetical pieces together

Lastly, as we’ve encountered a midnight reference, could it suggest another jigsaw piece – that of  Midnight Words for 2017??

Fulfilled Prophecies #16: “The Redcoats are coming, the British are coming!” – We’re here!

“The Redcoats are coming! The British are coming! THE BRITISH ARE COMING…the British are coming!”

Thus closed the word Lydia Stanley Marrow delivered under the Lord’s anointing during Shake The Nations’ team introductions at Legacy 2016 in Peterborough on 3 August, as reported in Map-vision and Word: Epicenters of Rivers of God’s Glory in Britain.

TODAY WE ARE COMING TO THE VERY HEART OF REVOLUTIONARY AMERICA!

Prime Minister Theresa May begins her visit within a week of the inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States. She will be the first overseas leader to meet him for talks tomorrow in the White House. (Am looking forward to Bill Koenig’s Eye-View report from there.)

BUT FIRST, the British Prime Minister and her entourage are heading straight to the head-quarters, if not official capital, of our colonies during the American Revolutionary War – Philadelphia. The then largest city hosted the First Continental Congress, before the war, and the Second Continental Congress, which signed the Declaration of Independence.

It is there, our Prime Minister will address the annual congressional Republican Retreat and, according to the Telegraph, say the UK and USA will “renew the special relationship” now that President Trump is in the White House. She will say Britain and America can “rediscover our confidence” and “lead together again” in the wake of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.

FIRST AND FOREMOST in these meetings is the vital fact mainstream media will ignore: BOTH Theresa May and Donald Trump understand the importance of, and are strongly supportive of, the Jewish nation of Israel.  Our two nations will thus become blessed by the Almighty, as He promised Abraham and his descendants – “I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed”.

This weekend is, therefore, of exceptional significance not only in terms of geopolitical history but also of Biblical history and what the Lord is doing!

Pray it marks the early signs of manifestation of the rest of the prophecy and eventually bearing fruit. Or, as in some prophetical delivery, performing a physical action as part of declaring its truth.

A strong indication of the above prophetic word moving out of its dormancy came a few months later upon seeing this prophetic photo of Mrs May at the G20 Conference. She had met Barack Obama and was standing on his podium, which he had left. I sensed in my spirit this itself was prophetic of him not only vacating his presidential office but also getting out of the way and being replaced by a person of a completely different spirit – thereby enabling fulfillment of the prophecy Lydia brought! (Fulfilled Prophecies #12 refers.)

Personal Note

Have you ever received a personal word of prophecy or been with someone moving in the prophetical gifting, perhaps recognised as operating in the office of prophet? As well as weighing and testing such words or visions, it’s wise to put them in a ‘pending tray’ to await subsequent confirmation by others of prophetical gifting, or for the actual fulfillment of the prophecy.  When such an eventually proves it true we realise what a privilege it was to have witnessed the delivery of the original word or vision. Such was the case for what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2012, and our nations’ role in its fulfillment (see recent FP #15).

Yet it was even more so when we heard Lydia!  We got exciting confirmation of what Nina had seen at the start of Trooping the Coloura text of the Lord’s heart for our nation! You can see our front-row reactions during Lydia’s delivery:

Fulfilled prophecies #15: UK’s and USA’s identities and destiny

donald-trump-christianThe opening paragraphs below Monday’s front-page headline ‘I’ll make Brexit great’ got my brain sparking on all cylinders! (Online version here.)  It’s the Telegraph’s reporting on The Times interview of President-elect Donald Trump with Tory party MP and ex-leader of the Brexit campaign, Michael Gove (emphasis added).:

‘Britain and America will get a new trade deal “done quickly and done properly”, Donald Trump said on Sunday night as he promised he would help make Brexit great. The US president-elect praised Britain for voting to leave the European Union, saying: “People, countries, want their own identity, and the UK wanted its own identity”.

‘Mr Trump also disclosed that Theresa May, the Prime Minister, will visit him in the White House “right after” he is sworn in.’

It not so much that Trump trashes Obama’s ‘mobster-style’ threat, made during his visit to support ex-PM Cameron, to send Britain “to the back of the queue” in trade negotiations if we to vote to get out of the EU. That derisory arm-twisting from a ‘lame-duck’ Potus with a full two-term record of failed foreign policies was treated with the contempt it deserves and helped many to decide in favour of ‘Brexit’!

Rev Dr Sharon Stone, courtesy CIENo, that’s not the issue now. Trump’s incisive remark about the United Kingdom wanting our own identity tallies so closely with a four years-old prophetic word brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone. His remark demonstrates that, both nations’ new and radically different leadership that’s come into office through exceptionally unusual circumstances, IS ALIGNING WITH THE LORD’S STATED PURPOSES AND DESTINY FOR OUR NATIONS.

As with prophet Daniel’s declaration to Babylon’s king Nebuchadnezzar,

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding…” (Dan 2:2-21 NKJV)

Now, let’s examine the Prophetic Word on Hurricane Sandy that Sharon brought from the Lord on 3rd November 2012, in which I’ve emphasised pertinent parts.:

hurricane-sandy-night-view; courtsesy Weather Channel“I don’t want to talk about the hurricane only hitting New York – it hit the Caribbean, it hit New Jersey, it hit New York, it went on up into Canada. There were deaths everywhere and so we don’t downsize any of that. In matter of fact, its eye hit New Jersey but the greatest amount of damage was done in New York and I think the reason people put the emphasis on that is simply because that’s the financial district, that has the Statue of Liberty, a place of identity for the nation, a place of rule in the nation. And so that’s why I believe people’s focus is upon there, even though that’s not the only place that it touched…

“I only got to see it once in a while…and one time the Lord said, “The hurricane Sandy is a punctuation.”

“…and so when I would see it, one time it would look like a full stop with the eye in the middle…another time with it swirling it would look like the question mark, with the dot, and when I’d see it another time it was elongated and it looked like the exclamation mark with the dot on the bottom!

“And the Lord kept saying that this hurricane and these winds are ‘a punctuation’ – not  just in the US but a punctuation in the world. Now a type of punctuation means that it draws the line, and it brings a separation and there is an alteration after that, and this is what the Lord said,

“These are re-arranging winds and they’re changing the course of nations.”

“…This is a “re-arranging winds and a changing of the course of nations” and the Lord spoke this, and forgive me as I’m going to read some of this because I want to get the words right. The Lord said:

“The Old World’s time has cycled around again to become a New World (we’re part of that Old World, here in Europe: Sharon) to rewrite history, no longer a Constantine conversion that advances religion without Christ. Hidden winds of change have been developing on the inside of My people and they are now blowing change into the world. The western New World, particularly the USA, will enter accelerated crisis-shaking to hasten their journey to learn that I am their true resource and I am their defender. The USA has been a champion of freedom for much of the oppressed world, but you cannot represent freedom without representing Me, Jesus, Who is the provider and Who can bring sustainable protection to the nation.

“The Lord says,

“Parts of these winds that are blowing, part of these winds that are bringing a re-arranging, are blowing away what has confused nations of their identity.”

We’re not the only nation that has been in an identity crisis. I believe that many of our nations have had skewed identity and the Lord is saying this; He says,

“I will bring you out of what you have designed by your own thinking and by your own hands – listen to that! – that I may redesign it by My thoughts and My plans.”

SELAH!

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

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

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

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

2017 – A FESTIVAL OF LIGHT

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