News ‘signs’ confirm EU glacier_iceberg prophecy

‘And they went out and preached everywhere, The Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.’ (Mark 16:20 NKJV)

A couple of fascinating ‘coincidences’ cropped up in last week’s news in juxtaposition with critical events in the post-Chequers Brexit-Mayhem or “UK’s turmoil”, as described by our visitor, President Donald Trump. Their relevance to a recent prophetic vision indicates the Lord’s hand is at work, as though placing pieces into an invisible jigsaw:

Veronika West’s facebook has a few brief posts on Saturday 14th July of these events, to one of which she remarks:

“WORD; ICEBERG (UK) BREAKS FREE FROM GLACIER (EU)!

This News article popped up on my news feed this afternoon and IMMEDIATELY caught my attention, as I read the headlines the Holy Spirit began to speak to me.

As I read through the news piece the first thing the Holy Spirit highlighted to me was the location of this ‘happening’: “Greenland”!

As I went with the leading of the Spirit I discovered that Greenland was in fact the VERY FIRST island to have had a referendum in 1982 to LEAVE THE BLOC, it took Greenland 3 years to break free of the EU, and it was a journey that was fraught with great turmoil and trouble. BUT CHECK THIS OUT; “DOOMSDAY PROPHETS WERE WRONG”!! [as in above link to Daily Express].

Amazingly! As I have read the news article I have been blown away by the words used to describe the BREAKING AWAY OF THE ICEBERG FROM GLACIER, ie; “it sounded like rockets going off, it was a VERY COMPLEX, CHAOTIC AND A NOISY EVENT…! “(Total confirmation of what is happening in Government in this very moment).

As I have been praying over this news article I am being shown many prophetic parallels that are unfolding before us as a Nation. I also see and believe that, in Greenland being seen as a backdrop, God is revealing a number of significant and greater strategies for the purpose of prayer and intercession going forward as a Nation in the coming days…!

Ever since sharing the “ICEBERG WORD” [RB: 6th June] I have been waiting with great expectation for confirmation to the word to manifest in some way in the natural, and I believe HERE IT IS!!!

[RB: The word begins: “I was taken into a powerful vision yesterday morning where I saw a massive glacier floating on the ocean, now as I looked at the glacier in the Vision, I saw that there was a large iceberg firmly attached to the outer edges of the glacier. Now as I drew closer in the vision I saw that the iceberg was the Nation of Great Britain. As I looked at the Nation suddenly my eyes were drawn back to the massive glacier and as I looked again at the glacier I saw these words, ‘EU, the bloc‘.

“Then suddenly I began to feel a spiritual shift and change in the vision and the waters of the ocean began to be stirred up. Then I heard the sound of cracking coming from deep within the glacier, Now as I stayed watching and listening, I saw the mountain-sized iceberg begin to move and then, suddenly, the berg broke away from the edge of the glacier and, as it tumbled and fell into the ocean, its large size and irregular shape led to the berg swaying violently back and forth, and back and forth in the waters…”]

What I find interesting is that the “Island of Greenland” (FIRST ISLAND TO LEAVE EU) seems to be a backdrop in this word being confirmed. I submit that this ‘unusual and sudden happening’ in Greenland not only serves to confirm the dream but also it brings ‘Great encouragement’ for us to CONTINUE TO WATCH! PRAY, PERSEVERE, PRESS IN AND PRAISE HIM UNTIL WE HAVE TOTALLY BROKEN FREE FROM THE CLUTCHES OF THE EU…NO STRINGS (TENTACLES) ATTACHED!!!

“GREEN-LAND”
•••••Lastly, something else that was clearly highlighted to me by the Holy Spirit were the words “GREEN-LAND”, in the vision God clearly showed me the following, and I quote;

“Suddenly my eyes were drawn back to the overturned iceberg. I saw that it had now become stable, and watched as it floated away from the glacier.

“Then the vision shifted and suddenly I saw the sun rising on the horizon, painting the skies with the deep colours of yellow, red and orange. I heard these words echo in the realm of the Spirit, “Behold! The dawning of a new day for the nation of Great Britain.”

“As I looked at the sun rising in the distance, immediately I heard these words, “Arise! Shine! For My Glory has risen upon you, Great Britain.”

“Then I looked again at the iceberg and I watched as the light and heat from the suns rays began to shine brighter and brighter upon the whole nation. Now as I remained watching the nation, I saw the tops of mountains which were covered in lush green grass beginning to emerge from the thick frozen layers of ice.

“Signs of new life began to burst forth from beneath the icy surface. Then again I heard the Spirit say, “Behold! The former things have come to pass. The new thing I now declare before they spring forth, I tell you of them!”

“The vision ended.”

Declarations over all involved in British politics

We join and stand with Suzanne Ferrett at Passion For The Nation in making these declarations which she published yesterday and today:

It is unusual for me to put out a declaration on a Sunday, and I am aware that there will be many differing views over the current proposed Brexit Bill. However, I felt a strong warning from God, that we need to pray and declare during this weekend, as well as Parliament next week, that God’s purposes are fulfilled.

First Declaration

“Ask of me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance”  Psalm 2: 8

Lord, we thank You for our Godly heritage and declare it will be recovered, restored and connected to Your future purpose for this nation in Jesus’ Name, and that this nation will step into God-given identity.

We acknowledge You as the Alpha and Omega, the One who is sovereign and rules in love and truth over the nations, that Your ways are higher than our ways, and Your thoughts higher than our thoughts.

We thank You for all those You have positioned 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 declare this is the day for Your Kingdom to be manifest, not only in outcomes but also in heart and processes. We declare the Cabinet, Government and Opposition parties will work shoulder to shoulder as Kingdom vision rises above party allegiance and personal preference.

We speak alignment with Your will and Your desire over every conversation taking place (this weekend) within constituency associations, between MPs and over the choices and decisions of those who have recently resigned, that an atmosphere of peace, hope and truth will reign over our land, cancelling every plan of the enemy to bring deception or manipulation or fear – in Jesus’ Name.

Second Declaration

As I stated yesterday, I felt a strong warning from God, that we need to be both praying and declaring over Parliament this week. Thank you to all those who are standing in that place at this time. Please do continue to use yesterday’s declaration.

“The Voice of the Lord echoes through the skies and seas. The Glory – God reigns as He thunders in the clouds. So powerful is His voice, so brilliant and bright, how majestic as He thunders over the great waters (sea of humanity)” Psalm 29:3-4 (Passion Translation)

We declare God is the King of Kings and the Lord of Glory, that He rules over the nations in love and we praise Him for the power of His word released into our world.

Lord, we declare Your people will stand in the full assurance that Your love, Your word and Your covenant with us will never fail, and in the flow of Your purposes for our nation at this time. We decree a new level of love and commitment to the fabric of the land will be released from Heaven, touching hearts, changing priorities and shifting values.

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 declare the Cabinet, Government and Opposition parties, will work shoulder to shoulder, as Kingdom vision 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.

Now, in the Name of Jesus we decree, the boundaries, borders and sovereignty of our nation; judicial, legislative, physical, spiritual, political and economic, will be marked out according to our Kingdom destiny and purpose. That which You would disconnect will be disconnected, and that which You would connect will be connected.

AMEN

A New Day of Divine Transition for the UK – spirit of betrayal and rebellion being overcome

In view of recent prophecies delivered by Veronika West rapidly proving to be true, let us pray and trust this one, published late evening Thursday, will be too. (Thank you to Suzanne at UK Prophetic Words for alerting me):

A WORD FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM; T•R•U•M•P OVERCOMES THE SPIRIT OF BETRAYAL AND REBELLION…!

“THE 11th HOUR NOW GIVES WAY TO A NEW DAY, WATCH! TRUMP OVERCOMES THE SPIRIT OF BETRAYAL AND REBELLION, FOR A DIVINE TRANSITION IS TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION”…!

During my prayer time this morning while continuing to intercede for the Nation re; (Brexit) and the imminent arrival of President Donald Trump suddenly I saw in the Spirit a large digital clock and as I looked at the clock I saw that the time was 11:11…!  Immediately the Spirit of God reminded me that the number Eleven is the number of TRANSITION..! Then I heard the Spirit say,

“THE 11th HOUR NOW GIVES WAY TO A NEW DAY, WATCH! TRUMP OVERCOMES THE SPIRIT OF BETRAYAL AND REBELLION, FOR A DIVINE TRANSITION IS TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION”…!

Now as I heard those words the Holy Spirit quickened to me “Deuteronomy 11:11”, which says, “But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven”! (This immediately Confirmed the word I posted a few days ago where the Lord gave me Joshua 3, for the Nation; ‘ISRAELITES CROSSING OVER THE JORDAN RIVER; THE NATION OF BRITAIN IS CROSSING OVER INTO THE LAND OF PROMISE…See; ‘Now Word’ concerning Brexit published 6th July at “Listen! For I Have Decreed Freedom Britain Over the United Kingdom, Watch! For the Whole Nation Will Pass By On Dry Ground!”

Now as I remained in deep intercession praying for the Nation, suddenly I heard in the Spirit (5) Five loud and clear Trumpet blasts going forth across the Nation, now as I listened to the sound, a vision opened up before me where I saw (5) Five Mighty Tidal Waves breaking forth upon the land, as I looked at the Tidal Waves, I heard these words again, “WATCH! TRUMP OVERCOMES THE SPIRIT OF BETRAYAL AND REBELLION IN THE NATION”.

The Holy Spirit then took me back to a powerful dream I had concerning; TRUMP AND 5 TIDAL WAVES…!  (America: Prepare For God’s Five Tidal Waves! – 17th Dec 2017)

“Daughter Watch! Tidal waves of My Truth, Righteousness, Unity, Mercy and Peace will trump the plans of the enemy in this nation!”

Now as I looked at the first tidal wave suddenly I heard these words, “My TRUTH will prevail in this nation.”
Then I looked again and I saw the second wave coming towards the land and I heard these words, “My RIGHTEOUSNESS draws near speedily.”
Then I saw the third large wave and I heard these words, “As it is in heaven, so shall it be upon the earth. I shall rebuild UNITY, for My Kingdom will not remain divided.”
Then I saw the fourth wave as it went forth upon the land and I heard these words, “MERCY, mercy shall triumph over judgement. My mercy shall make a way.”
Then I saw the fifth and last wave breaking forth upon the land and I heard these words, “And the God of PEACE will soon crush satan under your feet.”

•Isaiah 55:5 reads, “And now I’m doing it to you: you will summon nations you’ve never heard of, and nations who’ve never heard of you will come running to you because of Me, your God, because the Holy One of Israel has honored you.”

As I read over the dream again, the Spirit of God began to show and reveal me a powerful prophetic parallel that is unfolding in this hour and season between both Nations, THE UNITED KINGDOM AND UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, the Holy Spirit told me that the timing of President Donald Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom has been divinely orchestrated by His hand for the purpose of His Kingdom being established in the Nation, for this is “A TIME OF DIVINE TRANSITION; CROSSING OVER”!

Lastly, as I came out of prayer I entered into a time of Praise and thanksgiving for what God is doing and what God has already done in our Nation. And During this time the Father spoke these words to me, “Daughter, Ask My People in this Nation, Which loving Father if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? See;(Luke 11:11)…!

I PROPHESY THAT GREAT BRITAIN WILL BEGIN TO SEE WAVE AFTER WAVE AFTER WAVE OF THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNITY, MERCY AND PEACE BREAKING FORTH OVER THE NATION OVERCOMING AND OVERTURNING THE POWERS OF BETRAYAL AND REBELLION IN THE LAND – WE ARE CROSSING OVER…!

Veronika West, 12th July at 22:59.

Note: you may like to know today’s op-ed by Charles Moore’s is most apposite – see Donald Trump Yells Truth to Power, No Matter Whom He Offends. It Has Its Uses.:

‘Good manners, however, can be a way to conceal truth. If your host’s food is disgusting, for instance, you say it is delicious. President Trump seems not to understand. If he thinks something is true, he says it, regardless. This makes him a pretty shocking person in diplomatic circles. But the truth has its uses. Sometimes, it must be heard. 

‘Mr Trump, as a businessman, knows about deals. Speaking of the Brexit negotiations, he says: “I think what is going on is very unfortunate. Too long. You know, deals that take too long are never good ones.” That’s the truth too – not indisputable factual truth, perhaps, but a truth born of experience…But whatever one’s own views, the point is that Mr Trump’s outbursts have two characteristics: The first is that they stick it to what he sees as the current cant of the several thousand people who rule the Western world. The second is that they tend to favour the priorities of the many millions who don’t…’  (emphases mine)

Rule Britannia – Raising the Titanic!

Following our unscheduled but divinely orchestrated intermission that harmonises with material from Dave Hood, we continue to his next theme. For background read A 21-Years’ Series of Progressive Revelations, wherein he says this fits in with his comments upon Veronika West’s prophetic vision/word on the UK’s breaking away from the EU, and the urgent word on the break-up of the EU-bloc and on European nations.

As with all prophecies, this guest post is to be taken before the Lord and weighed:

‘Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the waves!

‘Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!’

R U L E  B R I T A N N I A (1997-2004 – ed 2018) Part 6 of ..papers???

Armada Memorial, Plymouth

Britain in its history was once called “Great”, and it was indeed great. It ruled the waves and was once the governing head of the Commonwealth of the Nations. It has since lost its “greatness” and is indeed far from being a “United Kingdom”. But God has plans to make her both Great and United again. In fact, years ago, it spawned a great navy, a vast fleet and flotilla of both merchant and naval shipping in might and power. In years past God used its power to spread the Gospel to the far-reaching corners of the Commonwealth, with some successes. But in some respects it tried to make those far-away inhabitants more like themselves and, as a consequence, the hope fell apart.

God was once with the nation as a “missionary country”. That is not to say that those who venture to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ are failing today. But rather this country has lost its greatness and unity with God. Its ability to measure truth has been stunted and blunted. It no longer has the cutting-edge and place with God among the nations.

England, Great Britain, I believe was always meant to be in God’s hand as His tool. Like Mark, who in his youth walked with God’s greats … it is my belief; He is once again preparing and calling His ‘Mark’, this ‘nation’ to new fields again … the fields of Europe. In part, the mission field is its own soil, its own country, but first, through God’s inner work and vision for this nation, He is reaching outward to its neighbour, France and Europe beyond, to the outer extent of the vision…

2Timothy 4:11 – ‘Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.’

God needs to change the heart of a nation, to become a minister TO the nations.

Mark, is as this country, that had and was meant to have a cutting-edge … Its METAL cutting head fell off the shaft and disappeared under muddy waters. But like those who explored and sought for the sunken metal hull of the Titanic…God knew where she lay and in what depths to find her. He has chosen to raise her from the depths of her long sleep…and like the one who sought to find her, who found her deep down…He, God, having found her, said… “I will come back for you, for I have left My Name there”.

Like the Titanic, she, His nation, His church in this country…she was a wreck, deep in the waters, up to her neck in mud and slime. But God found her, just like those explorers who longed to find her…for He had never taken his eyes off her, but was readying her for her future service.

Like Mark he says, “TELL MARK I HAVE NEED OF HIM”. Just like in the film (‘Titanic’), He intends to make the ending all the more real and all the more glorious. He found her and raised, raises her. Like the axe-head, God raised that up by the power of the cross. Because I live, Jesus said, you shall live also.

He wants again to make Britain a maritime nation, only this time to rule by the waves of his Spirit, and UPON HIS TIDE, His waters boundless limits that He sets…But there mighty [is] Jehovah for us, A place of rivers — streams broad of sides, No ship with oars doth go into it, And a mighty ship doth not pass over it. (YLT)

Just as Lord Kitchener proclaimed, “Your country needs you!” and was communicated to the masses in times of war and need so, too, does another Lord’s signal.

Tell My Mark, My people, My nation their Lord hath need of them.

HE HAS NEED OF YOU ALL NOW

For the campaign He has planted, plotted and planned is upon the battlefield of His Europe. For the earth is the Lord’s and everyone and everything in it.

This country is an island, an iceberg island and set for turning. The Titanic was sunk by an iceberg. This ship represented all that was known of the engineering of man. If it had not fell, oh how it would have “lit up” the oceans of the nations. The Titanic as it was, is similar to Europe, its EEC as it and its nations has been engineered by man and spiritual forces in a particular way. It, Europe, believes its strength is in its planning, in its purpose for the future of the peoples of Europe and its developing and strategic role in the World.

I hear Him emphatically say…

“EUROPE AS THE TITANIC, CANNOT WITHSTAND THE ICEBERG THAT IS BRITAIN”.

God is loosening its iceberg nation Britain OFF its AGE-LONG ROOTS, OFF ITS moorings. The European Titanic, in its pride and blindness CANNOT or WILL NOT SEE WHAT IS COMING, BUT IS SAILING IMPERIOUSLY TO DISASTER…it is ill-prepared and ill-equipped. It thinks itself INVINCIBLE, even UNSINKABLE. It neither understands the times or its tides.

God is turning the iceberg Britain upside-down and making her to be a force, like the Titanic was meant to be in its time. But under His ensign it will be a humble but great force IN HIM to be reckoned with, to sail the seas and the tides of the Holy Spirit.

She herself, BRITAIN, GOD’S OWN RAISED TITANIC, WILL APPROACH the ICE FIELDS OF FRANCE and EUROPE, but she will remain whole through His might…and THIS, HIS MIGHT, will be dispersed among the nations.

You, we, are His raised Titanic, His axe-head raised by the cross … its purpose to be the bows, the cutting-edge of His intercessory vessel, His ice-breaker… its purpose I hear Him emphatically say … the freedom and salvation of Europe. But He first calls His Mark and awakens us to the call.

Passion for the Nation: Declaration over the Government

As published today Monday 2nd July 2018, by Passion for the Nation and appearing here with their permission:

I (God) will bring the blind by a way they do not know, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will make darkness light before them and the crooked places straight.” Isaiah 42:16

GOVERNMENT

We call forth the strategies of heaven over all matters currently hindering Brexit, including Trade agreements, the Irish Border and the extent of any Transition period and we speak Your wisdom to all those involved in decision-making concerning Security, Anti-terrorism, Military Capability and related long-term funding and strategy. We decree Your purpose and Your plan will overwhelm any plan of man or the enemy, any personal agenda or political manoeuvring.

Now in the Name of Jesus, we pray for the Prime Minister, the Cabinet and all senior ministers, that they will work as a team with unity and cohesion, marked out by a mantle of Godly wisdom, authority and stature.

We lift Theresa May to You, and we ask You to surround her with favour as with a shield. We decree over any challenge, change or potential change of leadership, that this nation will be led at all times by those chosen and appointed by You, only altered according to Heaven’s instruction.

Continuing the Declaration over the UK’s Government – with news!

As published today Wednesday June 20th, 2018, by Passion for the Nation:

GOVERNMENT

“Choose for yourselves wise understanding, experienced, and respected men…and I will set them over you” Deuteronomy 1:13

We continue to declare, this is a nation marked out in Heaven for Divine Purpose, and for the Kingdom of God to come in all its fullness – that every demonic presence shifts or bows to the King of Kings and the Lord of Glory – where God’s Presence will dwell, transforming atmospheres, spheres and individual lives.

We declare shift and change into the heart of Government, that both Houses within Parliament will unite behind Your Kingdom purpose and plan, and we decree every political agenda and every personal agenda gives way to the moving of Your Spirit.

Lord, in the light of Proverbs 6:2 “you are snared by the words of your mouth, you are taken by the words of your mouth,” we stand on behalf of our nation and we repent of every wrong word, thought, deed, agreement and covenant that has been made on behalf of our nation that blocks or reverts Your sovereign destiny for the UK and Europe.

Now, we stand in Your grace and we declare, in the Name of Jesus, a fresh alignment of the words and thoughts of our leaders across this land with Your will, we call forth creative solutions, and we declare Your plans for this nation in all their fullness will be established. We speak stability to Government, in Jesus Name.

Thankyou to all those who are continuing to pray over the current issues in the House of Commons concerning Brexit, but we recognise this is a time when God’s Spirit is moving in our nation, and we want to be available to move with Him. We  will continue to stand in the gap for all the ongoing negotiations, discussions and debates, and therefore will return to some of the previous declarations over Brexit, but these will be on a less frequent basis.:

GOVERNMENT

Today: As the EU Withdrawal Bill continues in the Commons, we declare this is the time for Your Kingdom to come in great measure in our nation –  for the Kingdom values of Righteousness, Justice, Truth, Mercy, Peace and Moral Law to be restored, and for the designs, patterns and plans held in Heaven for the future of our Nation to be fulfilled.

We thank You Lord for the ancient charters that shaped this Nation for centuries past, and in the Name of Jesus,  we decree and declare, our Parliament will model and release the wisdom, purpose and plans of the Kingdom for the next season.

We speak alignment with Your perfect will over every aspect and clause of the Withdrawal Bill debated today and we release Your clarity into the atmosphere of confusion over Parliament and all Brexit negotiations, over the hindrances, diversions and weariness and we declare:

“The purposes of God will be fulfilled.”

We lift Theresa May to You now, we speak a fresh mantle of authority and wisdom upon her, that the fullness and strength of the leadership You have put within her will be released.

SO BE IT!

Dr Clifford Hill: trumpet call to battle for Britain!

Y’day I was pondering an open vision in 2004 of the splitting of the rotten fabric of our once United Kingdom, and in Parliament openly displaying the depths to which we have descended because of our rejection of Judaeo-Christian values. (See Comments upon the Collapse of Society posted 2011.)

Quickly checking my in-tray shows this from Revd Dr Clifford Hill, is essential reading (please be free to add to the discussion therein):

BLOWING THE TRUMPET 

A CALL TO BELIEVERS TO BATTLE FOR THE NATION

I don’t often have a sleepless night worrying about the state of the nation. But I did on Wednesday night after watching the chaotic scenes in Parliament that led to the expulsion from the chamber of the leader of the Scottish Nationalist MPs, followed by their mass walkout.

No, I wasn’t worrying about the possibility of another Scottish Referendum and the breakup of the Union, or about the effect upon our parliamentary democracy of the battle between the Lords and the Commons over Brexit. I was worrying about Bible-believing Christians in Britain being no longer involved in the battle for Brexit.

I am convinced that it was praying, Bible-believing Christians who, through their intercession in the days leading up to the historic 2016 Referendum, helped to produce a majority in favour of leaving the European Union. That this was achieved despite the predictions of the pundits and the enormous effort of the establishment, European and world leaders and the mainstream media, all trying to persuade Brits to stay shackled to the EU, is nothing short of miraculous.

But the Referendum battle was only a minor skirmish in comparison with what is happening now, as the Remainers mobilise their forces to reverse the decision and force Britain to stay within the European Union. That is their intention – nothing less – despite all their protests that they are only trying to ensure good trade deals.

My greatest worry is that I sense that many Christians no longer watch the news and follow the developments in the Brexit process because they are tired of it all, or because it’s all so depressing. Yes, it is! But if Christians opt out of the battle the consequences are unbelievably disastrous. The Bible reminds us that “Unless the Lord builds the house its builders labour in vain” (Ps 127).

“If Christians opt out of the battle the consequences are unbelievably disastrous.”

HAVE CHRISTIANS GIVEN UP?

Britain’s prospective release from the European Project and its demonic powers offers a wonderfully open future, potentially full of prosperity and new life. But this can only be achieved where there is sufficient faith in God to allow for his guidance and blessing to be influential in our national affairs.

My fear today is that many Christians have given up battling in prayer for Britain. Yes, I know what I wrote a year ago about not simply praying for prosperity, but that did not mean that we should not pray for God to use these times of trouble to bring a spirit of repentance into the nation.

I strongly believe in God’s promise given through Jeremiah: “If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned” (Jer 18:7).

I note that Jeremiah kept calling for repentance right up to the time when the Babylonian army surrounded the walls of Jerusalem: he knew that if the people put their trust in the Lord they would have been kept safe from the most powerful army in the world, even at that late hour. God would have done something at the last moment to save his people!

But the huge danger today is that many Bible-believing Christians have grown weary of the battle raging among our political masters. What came to me during my sleepless night was that many Christians do not understand the nature of the battle: it is not just a political battle, or a fight to save our democracy; it is part of a major spiritual conflict over the Judeo-Christian heritage – and future – of Western civilisation.

“Many Christians do not understand the spiritual nature of the battle.”

SPIRIT OF LAWLESSNESS

I believe we have reached a period in the history of the world where the most incredible spiritual battle is taking place – both in the heavenlies and upon earth – for the future influence of the biblical revelation of truth given through the advent, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Worn outside Parliament on June 13, 2018. Note small print!

It may be that what we are seeing is the release of the ‘man of lawlessness’ to which Paul refers in 2 Thessalonians 2. The spirit of rebellion against God, together with the rapid rise of anti-Semitism and the increase in the persecution of Christians in all parts of the world, are symptoms of the great spiritual battle that is raging in our lifetime.

Paul warns believers not to under-estimate the spiritual powers of darkness that are involved. He says “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph 6:12).

My fear is that most Christians do not understand the nature of this battle. They “have eyes but do not see…ears but do not hear” (Jer 5:21; also Mark 8:18). But Paul wrote that God’s plan was to use the ‘community of believers’ (the congregation of saints) “to make known the manifold wisdom of God to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Eph 3:10)!

SOUNDING THE CALL

If I am right in what I believe I am hearing in my quiet times, the world is rapidly moving into a period of incredible turmoil, with Europe and Israel at the centre of the battle. Once the civil war in Syria is over the attention of the Islamic world will turn to Israel and Britain needs to be free of European shackles if we are to respond as we should before God.

The greatest need today is for Bible-believing Christians, not only in Britain, but across the world, to recognise the nature of the battle and to seek the Lord for the right prayer strategy. Then, the forces of light may be mobilised by the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring his message of salvation to the nations and overcome the spirit of death that is driving the nations to destruction.

A trumpet call to prayer must be sounded among Christians – and we can all play our part in this.

Intercession for Europe as spiritual ‘grappling hooks’

Over lunch last Tuesday week with Peter, we spoke about my blogs over May-June on Neil Mackereth’s prayer alert on the EU re the English Channel, Isle of Wight and river Itchen’s water and cutting and casting off the EU’s hidden tentacles (as here, here and here). Peter drew attention to not forgetting the need to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in Europe and to be more aware of how the EU is affecting them spiritually.

In fact, Brexit doesn’t mean we’re to cut links with them and I recall several prophecies about Britain evangelising Europe! (Eg. 2005 Vision of Gt Britain and The Bridegroom Cometh!)

As if by confirmation, or ‘God-incidence’, later that very day Dave Hood emailed me in response to my personal prelude to the cutting of those tentacles. He writes, ‘What has prompted me is it seems, there might be on the one hand a LOOSING from Europe by cutting the tentacles, but it may be there is drawing towards the UK of her neighbour France.”

He promised details,“outlining a picture of grappling hooks being sent FROM the south-east corner of England, across the channel TO the coastal area of France … pulling the two countries CLOSER spiritually.

Dave thus regards what I published on that Wednesday-Thursday on Veronika West’s vision of the EU as a glacier breaking off an iceberg (the UK) as a confirmation of those details.

What I haven’t yet divulged is that the very next day (ie. after having posted Veronika’s) I opened the newspaper and spotted this headline reference to ‘iceberg’ :

Here’s Dave’s subsequent email of Thursday 7th June:

Veronika West: exceptionally powerful vision re Brexit

Evenings are family time so don’t normally blog or go online, but today have opportunity to publish previous post on Brexit. I’ve been working at it on and off all day regarding Archbishop Justin Welby’s divisive remarks on it and decided to blog on that tomorrow. (See Cranmer Why Can’t Justin Welby Distinguish the Council of Europe from the EU? with my several comments thereto, plus Gavin Ashenden’s Welby Made Terrible Error of Judgement Endorsing EU’s Utopianism.)

Now as I’m about to sign off, ‘Lynne H’ kindly emails alerting me to Veronika’s live video this evening. I just don’t take time to read Facebook, let alone watch any video BUT this beckons AND she too is talking about having been directed to the Brexit issue TODAY!!  So watch and listen carefully – time to pray too! (Thank you Lord, Veronika and Lynne)

Update: transcript and Veronika’s notes now available in next post >>

Thank you, with update on Brexit Prayer Alert

Would regular readers kindly note that Neil Mackereth has emailed me in his usual, inimitable style,

“Yes please, am very grateful if you could thank your readers – and let interested ones know that I am clean shaven!”

He greatly appreciates everyone who’s been able to respond to the call to pray and make declarations, as published here last Thursday, and the many comments thereto – all of which shows it’s a very popular prayer request.

Also, he wrote Monday:

“Thank you so much for disseminating far and wide the urgent request for prayer to cut the serpent tentacles. The response has been overwhelming (or perhaps whelming would be more appropriate, as it has been manageable!).

“We had about 30 Winchester Churches Together intercessors praying on Saturday morning, another prayer meeting this evening and plans to pray over the River Itchen in the coming weeks.

“Suzanne Payne has been in touch with a host of encouraging comments and promises of prayer from readers of her posts. (Like Lurpack butter, our fame is spreading!).

“Just returned from a Winchester revival prayer meeting in the Cathedral undercroft. Powerful wake-up call and cries for unity.”

Then yesterday,

“I have now had a chance to read the comments and agree they are positive and encouraging. As you intimate, the River Thames comment has great resonance.

“I also noted the comment about the DUP holding the “balance of Power” and had referred to that in a paper I’ve been refining.

“Wonderful to hear your comments about your visit to Winvin, and the significance of the Isle of Wight (prayer there tomorrow I see) and I loved your cutting through the (English) Channel. By the way, the IoW locals talk about the mainland as “The North Island”.

Also, Suzanne emailed me direct, “…many intercessors follow and pray about Brexit prophetic words in the facebook group ‘Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival’.  Brexit Words/intercession alerts always get high stats on the UK Prophetic Words site also.”

The first response to my pre-blog circular to intercessors last week was most timely. It came from Suzanne Ferrett at Passion For The Nation“Hi Richard, thank you for this. Interestingly I will be on the Isle of Wight with some other intercessors, we can make some declarations then…

“Standing with you Winchester! I do believe you carry an inheritance of Godly government in your soil.”

AMEN!

GPS #17: Personal prelude and cutting of EU serpent’s tentacles

The picture Neil Mackereth received, as recounted in Brexit Prayer Alert, produced a  very strong resonance not only in my spirit but also from personal experience, thereby indicating its veracity. In addition, several readers have recognised and confirmed its importance.

Also, I’m so pleased not to have published this hot-on-the-heels of that post because, at yesterday morning’s service, a friend told me Neil’s remarks on Winchester support what she’d sensed at about the same time whilst staying near Cowes; that is, at the northern-most point of the Isle of Wight and overlooking the Solent!  So, thank you ‘R’ for sharing this.

Upon my reading Neil’s description and the Lord’s emphasis upon the Isle of Wight, I instantly recalled not only the maps we use daily (as in the previous post and above; from Prayer of Protection for Britain) but also and especially what had happened when we were with a team of intercessors at Winchester Vineyard church on the eve of the EU Referendum. So, I dug out my account in New Britain’s Independence Day posted 25th June 2016 and quoted it in replying to Neil as follows,

‘On first reading of your picture re the Isle of Wight I was reminded of the Eve-of-Referendum prayer meeting we had in WinVin, upon which I blogged:
‘Whilst we stood in a rough circle I kept getting the impression of a huge outline of Britain hazily hovering a foot or so off the floor between us. It was as though we were standing as giants all around and looking down on Britain with backs turned towards Europe and Scandinavia (I didn’t share this as we were visitors and I didn’t know if it would be appreciated).
‘I was positioned by the ‘Isle of Wight’ and, after you (Neil) read about Jesus telling satan to get behind him, I was moved to declare that S in Europe get behind and away from Britain.
‘Also, I saw a huge Rock tear through the ‘map’ and emerge over a larger area (ie North Downs to Scottish borders) than when I saw a similar spiritual rock emerging 12 years ago.’

‘Now, Nina and I continue daily morning prayers for towns and cities based upon the 70-day ‘Keep Praying and Bless’ back in 2012 for the Jubilee. I use a small map of Britain which I turn over when referring to protection for sea, road, rail and air links and spotted that the ports have dotted lines (your ‘hawsers’) for ferry routes to Europe – and so I took a pair of scissors to cut through them on the map, as attached.’ (See below)

Thus, the symbolical links on that map are now prophetically severed with the EU.

Also Neil’s reference to Daniel is confirmatory, not only regarding the personal shower of recent references to that book, but also to my thoughts over the weekend.

In our online chat he adds, “This morning I noticed that ‘Itchen’ is an anagram of Ethnic (relating to characteristic of a group sharing a common history, culture, religion etc) – not quite sure why!”

The importance of what Neil received is such that I shared it with a couple of prophetical intercessors for their prayer groups. One, whose passion for our nation appreciates the great significance of King Alfred to our spiritual history and future, replied to him that her group is about to meet on the Isle of Wight!
