Prophetic word on manifestation of flames of fire and of the Glory

AWESOME ‘COINCIDENCE’!!  Just in from a walk and checking emails and note this from and courtesy of Chris Bennett and UK Prophetic Words. As I copy/paste and read ‘ramping up…’ it all matches the rhythm of Kenny Peavy and band on my hi-fi urging the Lord to purify them...”My heart is burning for you, my heart is burning for you…I’m hungry, thirsty longing for You…”, and then plead, “Set me on fire with Your fire” …

PENTECOSTAL FLAMES OF FIRE WILL DESCEND AND THE GLORY WILL MANIFEST VISIBLY

It’s all ramping up! The wave just gets bigger by the moment. There is a build-up of Holy Spirit power and pressure and sometime soon it’s going to blow! I prophesy that it will have a different release point and a different effect and manifestation in each place Holy Spirit decides to let loose. The manifestation will be suited to the recipients – I don’t know how else to put it.

In a quiet church the manifestation will be quiet, while in a loud, bouncy church the manifestation will be more explosive. In both cases I see Pentecostal flames of fire descending upon the people. However, the result will be the same – an explosive growth in both churches with signs and wonders following. So – what will it look like?

The only examples we have are Argentina, Toronto, Pensacola, and later moves. There may even be some quite elderly saints who can go back to the Hebridean Revival of 1949–51, but it has been prophesied time and time again that this coming move will be different from anything seen or recorded previously.

I prophesy the Ruach, the wind of the Spirit, will manifest in meetings. The Ruach shall blow and the Glory shall enter. I prophesy that the Glory Cloud, the Shekinah Glory, will manifest visibly. I prophesy that those in the meetings where these signs are manifest shall, like Moses and others since, shine – their faces shall shine and reflect the Glory of God’s presence. I see people laying in the Glory as ones dead, only to rise again in a while singing and giving praises to the Lord, faces shining brightly from His presence.

The fire will fall and people will experience, many for the first time, the touch of God – that touch that sends electricity racing through your body, that fills you with such faith and power, that gifts us everything we need for our calling, our ministry. For some it will be a quiet peaceful thing; for others it will be like Elijah on the mountain – wind, fire, earthquake, and stillness. No two will necessarily be the same. I prophesy that each of us will meet with the Lord in the Glory – and we’ll never be the same again!

This is the coming season of revival. It is starting already and it is certainly coming to a church near you very soon.

It’s not the End but the Start of an amazing, wonderful New Day!

It’s ‘kinda-coincidental’ that early on Tuesday morning two readers left encouraging comments on February’s post: Dreams and visions of Big Ben at the prophetical midnight hour – and that I saw that day’s headline on the clock’s chimes being silenced for four years and wanted to blog about that (see previous post). And it was opportune to use a graphic of Big Ben from an unknown source used to announce an intercessory gathering in Canterbury under the designation “It Is Time”!

The first of those comments was from Jonathan and followed up his earlier remarks,

‘With these prophecies I think it’s significant (as I e-mailed you at the time Richard) that the big prayer movement thing in South Africa that started early this year has been called “It’s Time”, as that was the message at least one of its organisers said God had given him.’

So I replied to him about that same title being used in a Canterbury meeting. Within half an hour of his commenting Sarah submitted this excellent, revelatory account:

‘I recently felt God saying it was a new day and I saw the sun rising. I was surprised as in Jewish culture a new day starts the evening and then its darkest before the dawn. But here was a new day like our culture is used to with the sun rising. So Malachi 4:2 makes sense to me in this context.

‘A couple or so years ago I had a vision / God video with music (which was playing on the radio), it was an Adele song “When the sky falls we all stand together” and I saw the children of God all hand in hand with Jesus amongst them. They were totally pure and clean, they were blameless. They walked together as the sun rose on a new day and then Jesus spoke to me. He said,

“It isn’t the end, it’s the beginning of an amazing and wonderful new day”.

‘I haven’t been the only one to say they get the general impression that they are walking into heaven on earth. I think we are as the Kingdom of God is expanding and now is the time that God is making all things new. I used to be scared of end times, but after that vision I wasn’t the same at all because God gave me hope through it. That there wasn’t anything to worry about, and that although I felt at the time like I was still a sinner, the reality was that I was blameless because of what Jesus did on the cross and there was hope in the new day we were all walking into, totally innocent children of God…’

To me (Richard) this is particularly pertinent because I’ve been musing about the distinct and stark contrast between the futures of the righteous and the unrighteous, between believers in Jesus and those who won’t. Scripture foretells worldwide judgments upon unregenerates but that those in Christ will safely escape Father’s wrath. Yet, in rapidly approaching that time, how does that difference manifest?  For a while I’ve wondered if the divergent, opposing theological views may somehow be reconciled…and then a ray of revelation dawned…

In considering how prophecies made by Jesus and Paul apply to the apostasy of the recent Synod I blogged about the Day of the Lord and repeat for ease of reference:

‘…it’s important not to overlook the fact that in quoting Isaiah 61 as His ‘mission statement’, Jesus opened that scroll in the synagogue and quoted the first verse only, and then stopped short (Luke 4:16-21). The Spirit of the Lord God was upon and anointed Him to preach the Good News, to heal the broken-hearted and bring release for those bound as though imprisoned. That was the purpose of His First Advent, but the subsequent verses allude to the anointing also continuing in His Second Advent, namely:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

In other words, Jesus’ mission was to proclaim the ‘Year of God’s Favour’ across Judea and Galilee and even into Samaria. It was implicit that the ‘Day of God’s Vengeance’ would follow in due course, and the subsequent revelation Jesus was given into that momentous future event was recorded by John in ‘The Apocalypse’. BUT the reference to that dread ‘Day of the Lord’ in the whole of Isaiah 61 is miniscule – it’s only one tiny clause in a long very positive, uplifting sentence!  AND the chapter’s remaining nine verses continue in the very same vein! (Check it yourself in NIV-UK.)

Therefore, whilst they may be severe shaking and demonic darkness the light, love and favour not only continues but also increases enormously for all those who are in Christ!

So thank and praise the Lord for confirming this in what You shared with Sarah…

To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’? That’s the Big Ben question as the nation waits…

August is renowned as the ‘silly season’ for odd and weird stories because of the holiday period’s dearth of normal, newsworthy events. Yesterday’s banner headline shown below seems simply part of that season because of the Health & Safety aspects – but that belies the status of a significant symbol of our nation’s identity.

The disruption of our famous clock’s mechanism strikes at our heart but not necessarily for the reasons stated in the Telegraph, its editorial and news of MPs’ anger at being kept in the dark over details of the proposed work!  [Today: Theresa May says “It can’t be right for Big Ben to be silenced for four years”.]

Regular readers of this blog are well aware not only of Big Ben’s symbolic importance but also and more especially of the many words and dreams about it at the prophetical ‘midnight hour’. So whatever the outcome of the present rumpus, it won’t surprise the Lord for He could be in the discussions and use them to bring about His purposes, or else work around them to achieve His sovereign will for Britain, thereby getting us fully ‘in sync’ with His will. (As in the word for 2014-16 brought by Revd Dr Sharon Stone in her ‘Clarion Call’.)

Tuesday 15 August ‘Final’ morning broadsheet edition (tap for digital version)

It wasn’t until later yesterday that I caught up with news and activity on this blog and was very pleased to notice a number of past posts had shot into the popular posts listing. So, I stuck them temporarily to the home page for quick reference and now replace them with this post.

A summary of some points which may be applicable should thus prove useful:

  • R Piercey 2016-17 – “…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).” …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.”
  • RB/TPuccio, Feb 2017 – ‘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 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.”
  • T Puccio March 2017 – “I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging. Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.’  
  • C Shamp June 2017 – Keep your eyes upon Big Ben something supernatural is about to be seen. As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say, “My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Please note full historical listing including relevance to the 2005 & 2017 terrorist attacks plus informative contributions in Dreams & Visions of Big Ben at the Midnight Hour. Also consider reading, Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben.

Let us take all those words received and delivered to the Lord in prayer and wait upon Him.

Lastly, it’s particularly fascinating the change in the clock’s chiming set for 21st August is one month to the day before Rosh Hashana, the ‘head of year’ for Jewish New Year 5778, with its unconnected relevance to Biblical End-times prophesied in  1 Thess 5:3 – ‘(The Day of the Lord will come…) while people are saying “Peace and Safety”…!!  

More on this another time…

Prophetic visions of renewal for the Church in Britain

As with all prophetic words and visions this is for prayer and weighing with the Lord. It is brought by Yinka Oyekan, Senior Minister of The Gate church, Reading, courtesy of UK Prophetic Words:

PROPHETIC VISIONS FOR THE CHURCH

Extraordinary dream and Prophetic vision this morning 5th August:

Last night I had the most amazing dream and it continued in a Prophetic vision this morning. “I love my children”, father said; “My heart breaks and longs for communion with every one of my children”.

I saw the new hunger and a great awakening in the church. And father said to me

“I have made my will clear; I have trumpeted my purposes, and I’m gathering my sons and daughters who will attend to the will of the chief shepherd before they attempt to attend to the needs of the sheep. Many are lost, broken without a shepherd; millions are desperately seeking me and deserving of me, oh that the bride would make herself ready. I have humbled my church and now I will rebuild her, and she will wear white garments, and be clothed with my glory.”

I saw small communities which seemed unimportant to man but were important to God and filled with glory and their pastors who had poured out their lives for the sake of these seemingly unimportant communities, father says,

“Your reward is coming; be patient; you were hidden but now your works will be revealed by God, you might be small but you have always been important to me.

“The prayers of many princes of the church have been received, I have seen their tears and cries for mercy, But some had their ears covered; they would not hear; they would not see; they would not repent”;

heaven reminds you that he is still in the business of removing lampstands; repent so that times of refreshing and healing may come from heaven.

I saw those who are standing in the outpouring receiving new graces of healing, of mercy, graces of deliverance and of the prophetic; so many graces been poured out and father says,

“Align yourself; position yourself; gather all the lame, the sick, the dispossessed, the aliens and I will fill that place with such a sense of liberty the nations will hear about it, for where my spirit is I bring freedom.”

I saw father fitting feet with golden shoes; I saw them running as fast as lightning. I woke up this morning from an extraordinary dream in which father said he’s renewing the church and then laid out before me these extraordinary visions; my mind was racing with images that were so profound; I spent the last two hours in prayer for our church for our leadership teams; I encourage you to do the same for yours; it’s time to seek the face of God afresh.

Greater London – An Awakening of Fire

Thank you to Suzanne Payne at UK Prophetic Words for transcribing this powerful word brought on 28 July by Emma Stark of Glasgow Prophetic Centre to Capstone Church in Ilford, Essex, east of London:

THIS REVIVAL WILL BE MARKED IN THE HISTORY BOOKS AS ‘THE AWAKENING OF FIRE’

Halfway into a prophetic word for this church (watch video), Emma brings this from the Lord about the next move of the Spirit He is about to release into the earth:

“There were moves that I sent to the earth that were about fathering.

“Then there were moves that I sent to the earth that were about the Spirit and about signs and wonders.

“And there were moves that I sent to the earth that brought a revelation of Jesus.”

But the spirit of the Lord says this:

“I have not yet sent a move into the earth that reflects the fullness of all that I am; Father, Son and Spirit.’

And the Lord says,

“I am about to reflect the full dynamic and the full facets of My nature”, says God.

And the Lord says,

“You have got to be prepared to be uncomfortable, for the Lord says, It is all the greatness of My glory and My magisterial Kingly anointing that is going to visit in the midst.”

And the Lord says,

“This revival will be marked in the history books as ‘The Awakening of Fire’…”

Selah!

Note: Upon walking into the building Emma heard the Spirit of the Lord say Capstone Church is “on the edge of a gigantic whirlwind of the Presence of God…and that they’ve only skimmed the top of the circle of that whirlwind…”!!!

Is this an Awakening? An update from Greater London

More exciting news about the ‘London area awakening’ – Michael Marcell writes:

Click/tap for link for ‘Welcome’ to the church

IS THIS AN AWAKENING?

I consider this to be the most important email/post I have ever written.

I can hardly believe that the first stage of what I have been praying for for 20 years has finally arrived. I am so thankful to God for lighting a fire at Capstone Church, Ilford.

Here are two prophetic words within an hour –

What is happening there is a sacred move of God. In His wisdom He has lit the fire in an out of the way place in East London; in a small church made up mainly of people of Indian ethnicity.

I guess this might offend some people, as one might have expected God to move first in a nice church full of Anglo Saxons. However, God is wiser than we are! Rakesh and Preethy Kurian have experienced revival in India and they came to this nation for one reason and one reason only (two if you count God telling them) – Revival!

The Kurians are a wonderful couple, who are prepared to give everything they have (and they have done so in the past) for revival. They realise that there is a large cost for hosting a move of God – money (the one in San Diego costs £750,000 a year); exhaustion and a potentially a lot of criticism and opposition, but they have said ‘yes’ to God. I had been to this church many times before this move started 5 weeks ago. It was and is a church full of love. The people to a man (or woman), were and are hungry and passionate for God. I have not seen that amount of love and passion anywhere before. In addition the worship always brings in the presence of God. Capstone might be difficult to get to, but I understand exactly why God has chosen this church to reside in.

God has done His bit, but whether or not it develops into what this nation desperately needs – an awakening – is up to us. It is up to us to visit and receive what is on offer and then return home to start another fire. It is up to us to go out into the streets to release His glory and bring people to Christ. It is up to us to help pray for this move of God.

So why is it that relatively few people have visited Capstone in the last 5 weeks to drink the new wine?

– ‘busyness’ is the main reason I have heard. May I suggest that this is a season to cancel things to enable us to get to these meetings. We have been waiting 20+ years for something like this; are we going to be so busy that we have no time for the new wine of God? 

– ‘too difficult to get to’ comes a close second. As I mentioned above, it is God who chose this out of the way place. Some people have come from Glasgow, Sheffield, Macclesfield and Leeds, and one person travels 600 miles per week to get to the meetings.

– some people are watching online. This is absolutely great; I understand 3,000+ are watching each night from all around the world. Definitely, one receives that way, but there is nothing like going to the well.

– some are happy doing what they do for God and do not need any more. Might I suggest that many people are doing good things for God, but not the best. I believe that this is a new season and it is a time for many to leave the old wine skin behind and taking up the new. May I suggest it is a time for laying our ministries on the altar and saying to God, do you still want me to carry on with this or have you something new for me? 

The only way we are going to get our nation out of this awful place is to bring people to the Lord. This move of God is about Presence, Presence, Presence. If we carry His presence wherever we go; few will be able to resist Him. We have the opportunity to go to these meetings to be filled up so we can then take it to the streets and release it. Please, please do not let this outpouring pass you by. It may be gone in a day, a week, a year; we do not know.

During the 1994 outpouring plane-loads of people went over to Toronto to receive and then release it in the UK. However, the people of Toronto hardly went to the meetings. Please don’t let that happen here in London or in the UK. God is offering us something; I urge you to receive it and then change our nation.

Michael Marcell, 2nd August 2017

RB Footnote:

After watching live streaming last Saturday I had an unusually vivid dream of visiting a packed chapel in North Wales with the Holy Spirit powerfully affecting everyone. It was related not only to my being taken to that area as a young child but also to the work of Arthur Burt there and the “No Ebb” prophecy he carried, which the American prophet Bob Jones said would be released now he’s passed to glory. (Read Who is Arthur Burt? – Bob Jones on ArthurA clarification from Arthur Burt’s daughter).

Arrival of the ‘latter rain’

This word brought by Lisa Arnold comes courtesy of UK Prophetic Words:

THE LORD’S WORD TO THE CHURCH

God has started sending his latter rain.

For those who have prepared themselves, positioned themselves, been through the fire of affliction and are still standing, and to those who have a great burden for the lost, time is short. Open your heart to me and open your eyes. I am the chief cornerstone that the builders rejected, come to me and you will live.

It is time to look up, reach out and win the lost! I have just brought you out of your own prison into my glorious light, into a safe spacious place. Now I am sending you out. Stand on Isaiah 61. I have covered you with my cloak of righteousness and set your heart ablaze. I have empowered you from on high!

It is time for you to rise up out of the ashes. I have set you free by my precious blood. It is not all about you, it is all about Jesus! I am the lion from the tribe of Judah. I am roaring over you and breaking every chain so you know who you really are in me. Make me your first love again and set down your idols! Where your heart is, your treasure is. I love you and I long for that intimacy like we once had. I am visiting you in unusual ways, divine encounters with me up close and sending you angels with messages for you.

The latter rain is starting to fall. It will refresh you and give you clear vision and impact your lives. The best is yet to come. The dark long storm is over! The first will be last and the last first! If you bless others I will bless you.. Now go and reap the harvest!. Are you ready? Can you feel your heart burning for the lost? Time is short and the golden bowl that carries the latter rain is tipping over!

Lisa Arnold, 23rd July 2017

RB’s Note: It was amusing to read this word as I’d only just sent G’morning’ message to Nina staying with daughter, saying I’d watered in the greenhouse and it’s just started to rain! Also timely in having seen Sean MaNamara from Coleraine, a Spirit-led evangelist to ‘hard-core’ on housing estates (as here) locally last night who spoke on his calling and ministered to many youngsters with a calling for the lost. AND earlier that day the ‘cornerstone’ featured as the interpretation to a prophetic vision at Acorn service for healing – sooo praise you Lord for this word:

Washed Away 

Yes please and amen Lord

My Dreams and Visions

I had a dream last night where I saw a preacher standing at a pulpit preaching when all of a sudden a tsunami-like wave appeared and hit him taking both he and the pulpit he was standing at away. There was no evidence that he nor his pulpit were ever there after the wave struck.

What is amazing is that this preacher was in a building preaching when the wave struck which in the natural cannot happen.

A tsunami does not come without an earthquake, a shaking, if you will. After the quake a tsunami warning is issued just as in the case of Japan a few years back.

What I sensed is the preacher standing behind the pulpit was preaching false doctrine. Apparently he ignored the warnings, that the doctrine he was preaching was not of God, and was swept away. One thing I did note is that the…

Shakings and God’s Glory for Britain and America

This word is brought by Chris Bennett, who lives in Rotherham (home-town of Nathan Morris; Shake the Nations ministry’s founder) is the same date as that through Bill Jennings on Shaking and Rebuilding the Church (tap/click title for Chris’ Facebook):

UK & USA – SHAKINGS AND THE GLORY

I sense this is coming to UK AND USA simultaneously. The first wave of revival will be marked by shakings and the Glory of the Lord in our meetings.

Acts 4:31 – And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness’.

There is a new shaking coming. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken, but the Lord is sending a new shaking to encourage rather than a shaking to destroy and throw down. The Lord is sending an Acts 4:31 shaking that when the church prays, the buildings will shake and the people will be encouraged.

I have noticed minor tremors shaking our church and others have noticed similar occurrences in their own church. However, I believe, and I sense that the Lord is sending an unmistakable shaking that will be recognisable and specific to their church, but not to anything around the church.

“I am about to shake your buildings – literally shake them – that you may know that I am moving among you,” says the Lord. “I am about to do amazing things to encourage you; to give you a hunger for more of Me. Your buildings will shake and the sick will be healed. Your buildings will shake and demons will flee, screaming in fear. Your buildings will shake and your people will shout, ‘the Lord, He is God – the Lord, He is God!’ Then My glory will come and you will all know My presence!”

SHAKING and RE-BUILDING the CHURCH in the UK

Thank you Lord and to Bill and UK Prophetic Words for this received yesterday because it confirms my thoughts on heresy and apostasy within the C of E. and thus encouraged publication of Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking. (NB. emphases and italicising mine).:

I AM GOING TO SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHURCH

I saw in my prayer time a vision; I saw a ruler, a plumb-line. As I contemplated this vision, thoughts and understanding came to me as to its meaning. I felt the Lord saying,

“Measure yourselves by my plumb-line. Align yourselves with my Word and my Spirit, for these two together are my plumb-line, these are my spirit-level.”

The traditional, institutional church and its recent decisions on same sex relationships had been on my mind.

I felt the Lord saying,

“Watch and see, as I do a rebuilding of my church. I am going to shake the foundations of the church in your land. The walls are going to rattle the floors will be shaken as I shake off, remove and level those and reject those who have rejected me. Those who have rejected my Word I reject. I am shaking the church out of compromise. The very foundations and structures of the church will be shaken. Many are choosing the broad path, the god of compromise. They have turned my glory into shame. How long will they love delusions? Rather than seek the truth.”

Many scriptures came to my mind, such as , “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision “. Many leaders, many of the institution of the ‘ church ‘ will have to choose between the path of compromise or the path of conflict. The path of complacency or the path of spiritual fervour. Whether to be loved by the world, or be hated by the world.

“Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you; because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY”…“My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me. Since you priests refuse to know me, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten the laws of your God.”

“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap”

I felt the Lord saying,

“This is not a time for rejoicing but a time for weeping and wailing. Look around you, many who call themselves by my name who claim to be my ‘church’ have made an alliance with satan . Their leaders have forgotten the God and Father of their fathers through whom I gave birth .They have spurned and rejected my word so I too spurn and reject them. Measure yourselves by my Word says the Lord; let it be the rule and the plumb-line. If it does not measure up then throw it out! The stones with which I built my house are built on the chief cornerstone, and on the foundation of prophets and apostles. These stones are crying out against those who have contaminated my house, as the contamination spreads the house will have to be torn down.’ The ‘church’, this institution make their decisions and their rules but did they consult me?

“Consider the future as you look at the past, how many of my ‘churches’ did not measure up, or remain ‘true’ as measured by my plumb-line?

“Many are following the traditions of men. Consider the ‘churches’ which are not my church. Are not many of them now lying derelict, have they not been turned into theatre halls, bars and restaurants? They craved after idolatry so I gave them over to their lusts and cravings. But my house will be called Holy! My true and accepted stones are not institutions but they are living stones, inscribed with ‘Holiness unto the Lord’; the filthy, the unregenerate, the sexually immoral, the idolaters will be rejected.

“For I will build my house with the plumb-line of my word and truth and by the Spirit of Holiness, my eternal word does not change.”

I hear the Lord say,

“You cry out for revival but I say cry out in repentance! My house will be called a house of prayer and yet it is through my intercessors and prayer warriors that my Spirit will bring revival through repentance and supplication.

“There is a rumbling, there is a shaking, there is change coming. You who crave revival, consider that with it comes a cost. It comes through sacrifice, with revival comes rejection by some of your peers. The religious among you will spurn you and say evil things about you.”

As I wrote these things down it was like writing a transcript as the thoughts flowed. I filtered the thoughts through my knowledge of scripture.

And I thought Lord, why do you give me the hard words? There are those who will reject this for they want the encouraging words, they want words to make them feel good. They want words of promise and edification. They want words of hope and joy.

And I remembered the scripture: “The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says the LORD of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, declares the LORD of hosts.’”

If the great awakening comes it must be marked out with repentance, changed lives that will put away immoral living who will seek Holiness and separation from the world. Let them come to us to find shelter under our care rather than the church going to the world to be friends. Be friends of sinners, but not friends with sinners. The sinner and the seeker will find love, joy and peace in an uncompromising message, an uncompromising Christ.

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.”

Bill Jennings, 18th July, 2017

A ‘now’ word on President Trump from the UK

Thank you UK Prophetic Words and Chris Bennett for this item based upon articles in the Washington Post (updated) Photo surfaces of evangelical leaders laying hands on Donald Trump in the White House (plus photo by Rodney Howard Brown):

2016: God has chosen the 45th President of the USA (Cranmer-link)

A WORD ABOUT DONALD TRUMP: LOOK BEYOND THE MEDIA, THE LIES, THE PROPAGANDA

Seeing the pictures of the faith leaders praying for President Donald Trump, the Lord reminded me that this picture, and the report that should go with it, will never appear in the mainstream media. [RB: remember what Revd John Kilpatrick brought here from the Lord on this difference.] The Lord reminded me of my wife’s comments, and He said this,

“Tell My people all over the world to LOOK BEYOND the MEDIA. Look beyond the LIES and PROPAGANDA. Look beyond the outpouring of my enemies. Look beyond what you see and hear in the natural. LOOK TO ME and what I am already doing!

“I Myself have already sown the seed of revival. I myself have already nurtured and cultivated that seed. It has already started to grow. Look, do you not see it? It has already started to bear fruit – fruit that will last. Fruit that will carry you into My kingdom.

“Donald J Trump may not be the world’s idea of a missionary, but My ways are not your ways. He may not be the ideal saviour that so many are looking for. He may not be either the world’s or the churches’ choice of leader. But, but, but – he is My CHOSEN VESSEL, flaws and all. Through him, because of the freedom he brings, revival will flourish. Through him and his example, the world will look again at My SON and his gift of SALVATION – and then you will see the REVIVAL, the TSUNAMI of my Holy Spirit, fall upon your land.”

THE SHAKING: watch for signs on earth and in the heavens

Although I don’t agree 100% with John Kilpatrick’s reasons for a pre-Tribulation ‘rapture’ of believers in Jesus Christ, some significant serendipity alerted me to pay very close attention to his latest message entitled Your Redemption Is Drawing Near. I’m amazed to discover upon transcribing some of its video that a particular time-stamp reinforces a personal ‘bridge over the Pond’!

WORDS OF WARNING TO THE WORLD

After bemoaning the dearth of good, regular teaching upon End-times throughout Western churches and the increasing ungodliness across American society and churches, John brings a profound, prophetic warning. His tone becomes increasingly sombre as he speaks more carefully and pausing often (see video link):

(at 2:10:50 mark) “I really believe that 2017 is pivotal; not just because of The Radiant Woman of Revelation 12 [RB: in which he refers to its astronomical manifestation in September]…and not just because it’s possible that this is a Jubilee year, nobody really knows, but there are indications...

(2:11:45) “One thing I can tell you is this: the Lord spoke to me a few weeks ago, two mornings in a row and He said, “The earth is marked for change”.

(2:12:00) “I heard it when I was coming out of sleep (pausing to wipe his brow) and the next morning when I was coming out of sleep I heard the very same voice and very same words: “The earth is marked for change”

“It so shook me I called a meeting that night, took my staff out to eat…and I told them at the end of the meal what I just told you – it doesn’t sound serious when I say it, but that’s because you didn’t hear the voice I heard! But whenever the Lord or Holy Spirit tells you that,  I wasn’t able to convey it like that. So you can’t tell what I felt – but I know the earth is marked for change.

“And that is not just the earth but is also the heavens – and the Holy Spirit has said to me there’s going to be such things begin to happen…it’s going to be so shaking to people before we get out of here, before the Lord comes to get us, there’s going to be so many things that’s going to shake people that, if you’re not forewarned, it’s going to shake you!

“You will remember my voice, you will hear my voice ring in your head a hundred times when things start happening and you’ll say, “He told us!”. I hope it brings you some comfort that I told you ahead of time… but you hear me; when things start happening there will be no more headlines of Russian collusion…no more talk of tampering with the election, all that won’t even be in the papers at all…I want to say one more thing.:

“I never really put two and two together ’til Friday as I was preparing my message – but because Donald Trump is president and not afraid of anyone he’s saying things most presidents would hold…and we need a president now who says what we need to hear, even if it’s insulting. So when he came out and said about ‘fake news’…yes, I began to realise I’ve been hearing a lot of fake news…There’s no collusion, there’s nothing to it, it’s all just hype..

“So now listen, listen, if the news media is reporting fake news and hype…and they’re holding back reporting things they need to report, and reporting things they don’t need to report; it all of a sudden dawned on me and the Holy Spirit said, 

“They will do the same things about the signs of My Coming – they will NOT report things that need to be reported that will shake the nations about the soon coming of Christ. They’ll hold it and talk about a bunch of nonsense”.

“And He said,

“My people will have to search it out and have to go to places of truth to get the truth because they won’t be able to hear it on the news any more!”

“You might not agree with that, but I’m ‘Donald Trump the Second’ up here today – I’m telling you things that you need to hear. I’m not afraid to tell you things you need to hear. I’ve got nothing to prove, I’m only trying to tell you things that will help you get to heaven…

“Don’t take for granted what I’m telling you about the heavens. I’m more concerned about that than I am other things because in 2009 the Lord gave me the prophetic acrostic R.E.S.U.R.R.E.C.T.I.O.N. – you remember? The one that stood out in my mind more than any other was the ‘S’ for ‘Signs’, and the Lord said there’s going to be signs in the heavens. And the Lord said to tell the people to warn them, because He said when the signs start happening it’s going to bring great fear on the earth!”

A VERY PERSONAL LEAD-IN

We watched that live-streamed service from Church of His Presence in the afternoon.  A few hours earlier at the morning service in Liphook, one of our ministers had encouraged us to come forward for a blessing for opening up,  or developing, our personal journey and calling in Jesus.

After a number of recent indications on how He’s been steering me since a young boy, I gained an insight into my mother’s preference for using my middle name – John. Homing into that, I recalled Apostle John was favoured by leaning upon Jesus’ chest, and subsequently by a visitation from which he recorded ‘the revelation of Jesus Christ’. So I briefly recalled His visitation to me one night in September 1989, as recounted in On a Trapdoor to Hell – Jesus Swoops to the Rescue.

Therefore, I was doubly intrigued a few hours later to hear pastor John start to teach upon the Book of Revelation and use that same description of John’s privileged place. Furthermore, the title of his talk is that of a scripture directly related to my encounter’s similarity to the Second Coming of the Lord. That verse appears in my late mother’s Missal for readings for The First Sunday in Advent, viz: ‘Lift up your heads because your redemption is at hand‘ (Luke 12:28) – see final part and illustration of Triple Validation…

YET it wasn’t until today that I discovered a THIRD connection in pastor John’s talk! It’s directly relevant to a personally relevant number referred to in those two earlier posts: 212 – the number of the house I lived in when a boy. AND those preceding links reveal earlier instances of such ‘serendipity’; that is, God-incidents!

In listening to the recording of pastor I’m ‘God-smacked’ by the indisputable fact that only when the recording has been playing for 2 hours 12 minutes does he start telling how he got warned upon awaking from sleep!!

Hmm, so we have something significant to contemplate and wait upon with the Lord -and those personal markers are telling me to pay attention because they validate His word to pastor Kilpatrick.  How about you, my reader, what do you think?
