Fulfilled prophecies #12 – ‘Redcoat’ on Potus’ empty podium

“Brexit, plus, plus, plus!”  Mainstream media, political pundits and pollsters were left badly shaken by their failure to foresee the unexpected – Trump’s tumultuous victory – exactly as pastor John Kilpatrick heard from Holy Spirit just after last Christmas as one aspect of 2016.:

“Nations shall be shaken, but kingdoms shall be jolted” and he was later told, “You will see it!” (see #7)

After publishing Urgent Call to Pray for PM May in September I quickly added this photo after Veronica West’s call to intercessory warfare.:

In view of the prophetic declaration delivered by Lydia Stanley Marrow under a very strong unction, “The Redcoats are coming, the British are coming!”the notable presence of our Union Flag beside the president’s podium and our new Prime Minister speaking – with Obama himself out of the picture! – enabled me to see this photo’s portent: ie. a significant, new influence upon the USA free from the present administration and its political party.

The transcript of Lydia’s words may be read on the above link, but get the full impact that confirms what Nina saw during June’s Trooping the Colour from this clip:

I’m pleased the prophetic word The Lion Has Roared and the Eagle Will Fly is now one of this blog’s popular posts. In this extract Charles Shamp tells what he saw in mid-2015.:

Charlie Shamp‘The second was a vision and prophetic word that had deep symbolism and multiple layers of revelatory insight both naturally and spiritually for the future. The vision was concerning the United Kingdom and America and also was first given in Norwich at a Heartbeat meeting. It was a vision of revival, awakening and freedom first coming to the UK and as a result it would come to America. The word was,

“The Lion must roar before the Eagle can fly!”

‘I was shown in a vision a lion and an eagle. I then saw as the lion roared the eagle took flight. The lion spoke to me of Great Britain and the roar of the Lord over the land, a roar of freedom and revival. The eagle taking flight spoke to me of America and her receiving freedom and awakening as a result of what would take place in Great Britain. I released this word and later spoke to…We all felt it was a significant word for the United Kingdom and America that the two were interlocked for a great awakening and until the United Kingdom was awakened America could not see another great outpouring.’

Timing of listening to ‘Time’

G’day readers.

How did your day start as you got under way?  Do you notice time seems to have different speeds when you’re getting up? Sometimes I have to get a move on to beat the clock and be ready at a specific time. One day ‘hare’ minute-hand scoots along as tho’ haring around the ‘milestone’ circle – but another day it may saunter as though half awake, and ‘tortoise’ hour-hand lies huddled in its shell.:

hare-clock2

My childhood intro to time and different speeds!

Soon after starting my search for ‘truth’ when a young man, I read that time’s related to consciousness. So I noticed its measure may depend upon alertness.

Decades later and living at a more leisurely pace I notice this puzzles me. For example, in the bathroom I’m usually wide awake when swiping a razor around my face – rarely am I drowsy and, if needing to be on the move, I keep an eye on my watch as it sneakily heads for a deadline.

I’ve noticed differences on some days between how much I can get done in that early half-hour. Maybe my wrist-watch speeds up or down, or maybe it’s simply all down to my body-clock. Even so I’d agree with Justin Abrahams’ claim that, of its own nature, time does go at different speeds – maybe I get my own ‘time bubble’ in the bathroom!  But I’d much prefer to learn the practicalities of his claim to having done a two-hour wash, wax and polish of his car in half an hour!!

After posting the first announcement about Justin’s podcast on engaging Time in February I found the timing of my listening to it was intriguing!

podomatic-justin-abraham-time2My first attempt at listening on my phone failed to work. Not having done this on my phone before I found out later that the talk did download but I needed a better ‘ap’. Anyway, it was much better this way because it grabbed my attention when I was able to give it. Had it worked it would have distracted me from a personally relevant event at the conference I was going to.

At least a couple of aspects of what Justin teaches on that podcast were relevant to that event as well as to other recent things. First, I’m amused I’d been thinking of something from dim, distant days – “He who grieves most, grieves for wasted time”. It was one of many such quotations that had been used to prompt me to search seriously for the truth and meaning of life just before the famous Beatles turned into hippies and then got into transcendental mediation.

A Few Thoughts on ‘Time’

I hope anyone who followed my suggestion to listen to Justin’s podcast (here) didn’t find his excited assertions too daunting. Perhaps his approach is too ‘off-the-wall’ for some, yet his experiences and insights are worthy of due consideration and reflection.

Those of ‘glued-on’ adherence to the literal Bible text and fixed interpretation, according to whichever adopted translation is cleaved to, may have difficulty with his challenging but Biblically-based concepts. I very much like his familiarity with scientific concepts, from which most Christians shy away. It’s something I’d urge my brethren to get to grips with in order to marvel even more at Father’s handiwork.

Without being in any way dismissive, however, it would be interesting to see evidence for Justin’s claims regarding postage dates.  Also, as above, I’m ambitious to clean, wax and polish the car in such an unexpected short time-span as he experienced for two! 🙂

I recalled what Charles Shamp taught on the prophet Daniel travelling in time and seeing the stars at Jesus’ birth, thus leaving instructions on what the Magi should look for in the sky and why (Supermoon Monday’s ‘blood moon’ and The Age to Come refers).

Bobby Conner – Time Disappeared

Bobby_Carolyn_Conner_500pxAlso, I was reminded of what Bobby Conner said in Bath city about ten years ago. After returning from a trip, he phoned his wife Carolyn from the airport to let her know when to expect him home. It’s usually well over an hour’s journey, so his thoughts turned to the Lord whilst driving. Only twenty minutes later Bobby came to the junction for the road leading to their house – total time: under half hour!  Huh?

Miraculous, or a tall story? And is it Biblical??  My overview Eternity and Prophecy refer to three examples in scripture of time having been distorted and broken. And remember…

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no-one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end…

I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it, God does it, that man should fear before Him.

That which is has already been, and what is to be has already been; and God seeks an account of what is pursued [so that history repeats itself – Amplified Bible]. (Ecclesiastes 3:11 Amp; 14-15 NKJV)

Charles Shamp: the Lion has Roared and the Eagle will Fly!

Lion_Eagle

Note: thank you David Robinson for letting me know this is on Elijah List as it’s not on the Shamp’s Facebook. Published here with links and minor editorial changes only:

For many years now our family and ministry has had a burning desire for awakening and revival to return to Great Britain. Those that follow Destiny Encounters know that last year Brynn and I, along with our children spent three months traveling across the United Kingdom ministering in every church or ministry group that would open its doors to us. There was a mandate in our hearts concerning sowing into the rich revival heritage of that land.

In fact, a year before, the Spirit of intercession had come upon me and my close friend, Munday Martin, while at a lunch meeting with the Heartbeat team that hosted us in England. I laid prostrate on the floor weeping and praying for the nation in a home outside the city of Norwich. God was placing in my heart a deep burden for those beautiful lands. Upon returning home I shared my heart with Brynn regarding what the Lord had placed in me. During that time the Lord spoke with me and said, “Son, whatever you sow into this land you will reap for your nation, America”.

When I shared this with Brynn our hearts began to burn within us with a mandate to see Britain come alive with another awakening. This word was confirmed just a few months later when Chuck Pierce called me out and prophesied that God would use us on Island Nations to shift governments. I told Chuck this was a total confirmation of what the Lord had spoken to us about going to the United Kingdom. He laughed and said, praise God that’s a big island, go for it! With the help of a wonderful team of ministers and intercessors we were able to spend three months traveling and ministering across the island. God did amazing miracles and although the meetings were not attended by hundreds of people it was a significant time of sowing into the land to see change. Our love for the United Kingdom and its destiny had become such a passion in our hearts. We even felt very strongly to cancel a trip to Germany so we could stay longer in England to sow the Word.

Honestly we felt one with the people and the land, it was supernatural. We also understood that seed takes time to grow and while we are not a mega ministry that could draw the masses to the meetings to hear what the Lord was telling us we knew that God’s word never returns void and His word carries mega impact. It has been awesome to see what the Lord has done this year as a result of those three months. The awesome outpouring that is taking place in Seattle that God graciously let us be a part of, to the tremendous miracle reports we are receiving from people that have attended meetings in America this year. God is doing mighty things, but we believe this is just the beginning!

The realm of visions and prophecy is a place of seeing and knowing in order to create God’s desire in the earth. However, the Bible is very clear that often times we are only shown in part and therefore prophesy in part. I believe that what takes place is the Prophet does his part and God does his part and it creates a whole, a whole new world. The place of visions is an environment of mystery where you are left to decipher and interpret a symbolic language that, if the prophet was to be completely transparent, he often doesn’t fully know everything the Lord is showing him in the place of interpretation. The prophet’s only desire should be to yield as an oracle and as God’s prophetic mouth piece in the earth release a ‘thus says the Lord’. Just like the Prophet Habakkuk says,

“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Habakkuk 2:1-3).

I’ve at times found myself in this place of prophesying in a meeting and afterwards thinking I fully understood what God was saying in the spirit only to come to the conclusion many months later that God was speaking on multiple levels that my natural brain couldn’t fully comprehend. I have watched over the years as the word came to pass in ways that even caught me by surprise. To me, prophecy has been like pieces of a puzzle placed together to reveal the bigger picture of God’s magnificent plan for the nations.

I’ve been cautious over the years to never give my personal opinion about politics. In fact, I try to avoid the conversation concerning any world politics because frankly I believe personal opinion doesn’t matter in world affairs, the only thing that matters are what the Lord speaks and the prophetic word shifts the natural world. I’ve only spoken when it was directed from a ‘thus says the Lord’. Last year while we were ministering in the United Kingdom the Lord gave me two specific visions about future events. The first was a vision of a terrorist attack attempt on London that I saw during a meeting in Norwich at a Heartbeat gathering. This vision was very self-explanatory and we knew as believers exactly what we must do. We prayed and as many remember several weeks later in June of 2015 there was a massive terrorist attack that was stopped.

The second was a vision and prophetic word that had deep symbolism and multiple layers of revelatory insight both naturally and spiritually for the future. The vision was concerning the United Kingdom and America and also was first given in Norwich at a Heartbeat meeting. It was a vision of revival, awakening and freedom first coming to the UK and as a result it would come to America. The word was,

“The Lion must roar before the Eagle can fly!”

I was shown in a vision a lion and an eagle. I then saw as the lion roared the eagle took flight. The lion spoke to me of Great Britain and the roar of the Lord over the land, a roar of freedom and revival. The eagle taking flight spoke to me of America and her receiving freedom and awakening as a result of what would take place in Great Britain. I released this word and later spoke to Alan Goldstone and David Cairns, leadership of the Heartbeat Team we had been working with, about it. We all felt it was a significant word for the United Kingdom and America that the two were interlocked for a great awakening and until the United Kingdom was awakened America could not see another great outpouring.

I also believe that this word was tied into the recent vote for Great Britain to leave the European Union and is a direct fulfillment of this prophetic word spoken last year. It is a trigger point in the natural for what God is doing spiritually for The United Kingdom. I believe Great Britain and America are on a prophetic timeline that is leading to a massive outpouring of the spirit once again. All the signs are lighting the way and the recent developments only make the picture become more clear, revival is near! When we study out the history of revival in the earth over the past several centuries, we can almost single-handedly point to the United Kingdom as a major hot spot and catalyst for what the Holy Spirit was doing at that time. Almost every major shift of reformation or revival started on these Island Nations.

Whether we are discussing the First and Second Great Awakenings, or go further back and discuss the mystics and catholic miracle workers that walked the shores of England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales – God has always seemed to release the fresh movement of the Holy Spirit on these Islands that has gone on to affect the entire earth. My love for Church history and the moves of the Spirit caused me to recognize that what took place within these nations directly affected America and the move of the Spirit in my nation. Although we are an ocean away, we are connected in the realm of the Spirit, and as the song of Heaven would arise over the UK, it would carry all the way to the shores of America and revival would begin to come forth in these United States.

Over the past several years we have been traveling into the UK to minister, our greatest hope and prayer has been that God would once again ignite these Islands with the wild-fire of Heaven. From the moment that I first stepped into a meeting in the nation of Wales back in 2010, I could feel something fresh was being birthed in the Spirit, something organic, something that would turn the world upside down! Something massive has shifted, the lion is roaring and revival is coming.

The earth is shaking and God’s Kingdom is coming. I know many fear change and when it comes there is often turbulence that causes people to be uncertain about the future, but surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealed his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord hath spoken, who can but prophesy? I tell you in confidence not from someone who is speaking what God is saying after the fact, but from one that has seen before hand that God is setting both the United Kingdom and America up for another massive awakening. We are the generation that will not just see revival, but we are those who will decree it into existence as Sons and Daughters of the Kingdom of God.

I want to leave you with this, God has not given you a spirit of fear United Kingdom, but He has given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Great Britain your greatest days of Glory are upon you!

Notes:

2017, the significance of 70 years and Wigglesworth vision

Upon reading the full transcript of Malcolm Duncan’s message it resonated deeply within my spirit – as well as directly relating to personal experiences. Please bear with me as some of it necessitates reiteration.

Revd Malcolm DuncanWe should note Malcolm’s reservations mirror those of Wigglesworth’s contemporaries over his unorthodox, questionable ministry methods – but whatever the Lord wanted to heal or expel got accomplished. (Bobby Conner recounts his astonishment at seeing a dubious church leader in Jesus’ presence but being rebuked because he’s the Lord’s servant!)  Malcolm’s remarks upon weighing what the Lord may be saying is an object lesson in the prophetic. NB:

“…Denis shouted “And brother I came into the kingdom in 1947” and the minute he said it I thought, “I think God is saying something to me”.
“I think Denis…he used you as a prophetic voice…So what came into my head was “the Smith Wigglesworth prophecy of 1947”.
“I turned to Pauline and said, “Did Smith Wigglesworth prophesy his prophecy in 1947?”, and she said, “I don’t know but I was born in 1947”.
“But as soon as I heard Denis I thought of the Smith Wigglesworth prophecy, which was very unusual for me and made me think, “What are you saying Lord?” I went back and I read it again and thought – “There is something stirring in my spirit here.” (Emphasis added)

Pauline’s reaction is mine too for I always recall that vision’s year is my birth year. Also, the timing of 50 years until my witnessing his prayer partner’s ecstatic joy at also seeing what will be happening across the British Isles is etched in my memory, as told in the previous post.

Yet there’s another reason – and it connects into Malcolm’s thoughts on 70 years as being significant. AND I can offer what he doesn’t – a confirmatory explanation! He said,

“2017 is 70 years after the prophecy was given. 2017 is also 50 years after Jean Darnall’s prophecy, which was given in 1967, when she saw little fires across the UK ablaze and then a river flowing through the UK and into Europe…

“Is God saying something with these two things? The 50th year after Jean Darnall’s prophecy, a year of jubilee. The 70th year after Smith Wigglesworth prophecy, just like there were 70 years of captivity for Israel…I feel like Daniel must have felt like when he found Jeremiah’s promise after 70 years and said, after 70 years I am going to do something.

NOW, this leads into something I’d intended to finish relating to revelations upon timings received last April.  I will be more concise than when I was trying to formulate and clarify what I was learning.:

Charlie ShampOn Good Friday 2015 Charles Shamp taught on the coming September’s fourth blood-moon as marking the beginning of the time of the Army of God. He believes it starts a two-year period that’s open for all believers, but especially for a glorious company praying things from the Age to Come. Thus, the two years until September 2017 will be an extra-special period, not judgmental and destructive.

The details are recounted in A Scriptural context of…the Blood-Moon Tetrad; and under ‘2015 Feast of Tabernacles Blood-Moon’ header in its follow-up post I reported Charlie’s reasons. Those posts were written last September, but the first ones on that Passover-Easter conference appeared a year ago this month. Furthermore, I blogged about the personal significance of 40 and 55 year periods in ‘God-incidents’ Validate Cycles and Point to Near-Future.

70-Years Period

I didn’t, however, explain the personal relevance of 70 years to 23rd September 2017.

As in those posts, Charlie relates that date to the prophet Daniel’s forecast and bequest to the Magi of his revelation on ‘The Star of Bethlehem’; a reappearance of which is expected in astronomical stellar and planetary alignments of 23.9.2017 (note: not astrology!). More specifically, this future event relates to Revelation 12:1 – John’s vision of the woman clothed with the sun. (For more read Nelson Walters Who Is the Woman of Rev.12?)

My reaction was – “My 70th birthday’s the day before!”.  So the 23rd September 2017 will start a new 70-year period for me.

70 is a biblically sacred number the two factors of which are perfect numbers, 7 and 10 representing perfection and completeness respectively. As such, it symbolizes perfect spiritual order carried out with all power, and can also represent a period of judgment (courtesy BibleStudy.org, which gives other examples to those Malcolm cites). Also, Jewish scholars teach that ‘The Torah has 70 Faces’, or levels of interpretation!

Last year saw 70th anniversary celebrations over the end of World War II, and other occasions. 2017 will be the 70th anniversary of crucial events in the birth of the state of Israel. In A Few Thoughts To Mark the Occasion of the 67th birthday of that state, Joel Rosenberg writes about a critical occasion in 1947 on the UN Partition Plan for Palestine upon the British withdrawal from that Mandated Territory, as follows:

‘To succeed, the Partition Plan needed a two-thirds majority vote of the U.N. General Assembly. With just days to go before that historic vote on November 29, 1947, however, supporters of the plan were still three votes short. Some have suggested that President Truman personally called leaders of other nations to encourage them to support the American position. Others say he didn’t but that staff in his administration did; the record is not clear. Either way, most historians—including David McCullough, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his extraordinary biography Truman—acknowledge that Truman wanted the plan to pass and played a role behind the scenes. In the end, Truman got his way. The Partition Plan dramatically passed at the last moment, thirty-three to thirteen, with ten abstentions’.

2017 – Unity

Malcolm Duncan gives his reasons for 2017 being a significant year and seeing a move of God in the UK, for which he believes God is asking us to get ready in many ways. I will cover this essential aspect in another post…

By the way, Erik Hadik, the financial analyst I occasionally blog about, gave this forecast last June on 2017:

‘The culmination of so many diverse cycle in 2017 keeps receiving powerful validation. For instance, the convergence of 8-year, 17-year and 40-year cycles – all related to China – have been forecast to accelerate into 2017.’

We shall see what we shall see…

Lion Bites reveal encouraging theme from the Lord

Lion_Roars_email_logo_HIGHERIf you’re a regular subscriber to daily ‘Lion Bites’ from Glasgow Prophetic Centre maybe you’ve noticed their team picks up specific themes from the Lord?  Often they’re at the top of my email’s in-tray listing and so it’s first in my attention. Occasionally an individual word harmonises with other email. Often, I notice the thread of a theme in a tapestry the Lord is weaving through the Glasgow team.

Their vision of circling eagles in Gathering of Eagles hit me direct in view of its personal importance, as revealed in footnote links. The exhortation to focus our prophetical eyes motivated me to tackle outstanding commentaries upon prophetic words and messages Charlie Shamp and Neville Johnson had delivered. Continue reading

Neville Johnson: 1 – last blood moon ushers in new era

Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you

For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the LORD will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
(Isaiah 60:1-2 NKJV)

For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19 NKJV)

Thank you to all subscribers and visitors for making Urgent prophetic words about a cut-off date on God’s time-line, as delivered by Neville Johnson, one of the year’s top three  blogs. I first heard about him when Paul Keith Davis referred to a prophetic vision he’d had circa 2007-8 of the Days of Noah happening in our time. Almost simultaneously, his friend Neville had the same experience – details in second section of this post.

Neville was once again a main speaker at this year’s Lancaster Prophetic Conference in California hosted by Shekinah Worship Centre. I quoted his insights into recent globally significant meetings in New York as regards the false church.

In my humble opinion his teaching throughout three sessions deserves careful study.  In opening the first he remarks,

“I’m going to tell you the truth because, you know, the Bible says ‘You shall know the truth and it will set you free’ and the days in which we’re living are awesome days, they are  frightening days (RB: ie. for unbelievers).  We can’t go through life saying ‘Hallelujah, everything’s great!’ – everything’s not great unless you’re walking closely with the Lord!

“You know, it’s the goodness and the severity of the Lord – there’s light and there is darkness – we need to understand the days in which we’re living… dangerous times but glorious times…”

Upon replaying I now note his quoting Hebrews 11:7, which is also in my opening reference to faith relating to ‘Age to Come’ and the blood moon, as herein.

“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not as yet seen, moved with fear to prepare an ark for the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world and became the heir of the righteousness which by faith.”

“So if Noah is hearing God he didn’t just say, ‘Trust God’ he had to do certain things which, if he didn’t, he wouldn’t survive. Are you hearing me?

“That word ‘warned’ signifies and implies if we don’t hear what God is saying we’re going to be in jeopardy…the word ‘fear’ in Hebrew means not normal word for fear but to be circumspect, to be prudent and to be  careful…”

Neville continues stressing the importance of understanding what’s going on in these present days and the need to ‘trust and obey’ and emphasises avoiding dire results of erroneous church teaching. For example, he refers to the dreadful mistake during the Boxer Revolution in China and, therefore, that pastors need to tell their people the truth about what’s happening.

Notes on the Message

I’m pulling out pertinent scribbles from my notes on those first two sessions to (1) give a flavour of what Neville said; (2) enable comparison with Charles Shamp’s prophetic and oral teaching in January and April respectively. Numbers denote approx. elapsed time for reference purpose (emphasis on ‘Enoch’ re. blood moon Hebrews 11 quotation).:

  1. the church – not the people or gov’t – must take responsibility for nations forsaking commandments and principles of God and because it didn’t in the West, it got trampled underfoot by ungodly men – BUT there is some good in all this [9]
  2. God has already given an extension of time for getting things right – but this comes to an end next month (ie Sept 2015) – time has run out [10]
  3. we must know God’s nature – He is above all good and loving and extends time of rather than bringing judgement – [as in days of Noah when Enoch foresaw what was coming and Methusalah was born yet the Flood wouldn’t come until he died – 26]
  4. churches doesn’t know the times; unable to see what’s coming over the horizon
  5. the world is to see Jesus revealed through us before He comes in order for us to bring in the harvest [13]
  6. vision of volcanic activity in Yellowstone Park
  7. vision of a lynchpin being pulled out of a huge wheel with a resultant collapse – something happening this month (Aug) will trigger what happens in Sept [23]
  8. Like Enoch we need to walk with God as we’ve seen what’s coming [27]
  9. Grace is coming to enable us to walk with God as it’s going to be lot worse than in the days of Noah [29]
  10. As in Acts 2:20 sun darkened and moon turn to blood and whomsoever calls on the God will be saved; ie. church not raptured needs to be saving souls [31]
  11. Blood moon tetrad taking us into new dispensation
  12. God is going to give us great authority against opposition [1:03]
  13. 2Thess1 – don’t be disturbed or deceived – we’re going to be here when antichrist revealed – not raptured [1:05]
  14. Great apostasy – Lord clearly showed a 3-stage falling away as the church gets smaller but brighter – having been taught lies many Christians will fall away – ie. the tares will be taken out of the church (not world) [1:08] NB: confirms first email.
  15. God isn’t going to fulfil our dreams but HIS for very few can be trusted with wealth – need to sow now and get Lord’s provision when necessary [1:14]
  16. False prophet and false church [from 1:15 mins – as reported in this blog]
  17. coming economic collapse will be much worse than previously with storms of unrighteousness – mobs attacking churches to be repulsed as in Sodom [1:22]
  18. early Church kept all the Feasts except for Tabernacles. This last blood moon ushers in a new era that we’re now entering into. It brings us to the end of the age
  19. United Kingdom – judgement but will become End-time spiritual empire [1:27] – even better than charismatic period in 20th Century [1:35]
  20. A new kind of grace will be available after this Feast of Tabernacles [1:44]

I trust you will be blessed by listening to the Lord as you watch this Session. Neville’s second message is much more upbeat. As mentioned before, he teaches in depth on the necessity of being heavenly minded in order to see The BIGGER Picture’ God has for His children and for the new earth, now and in the near future – the Age to Come!

What! No ‘pre-Trib’ rapture? See succinct, scriptural summary by Nelson Walters in Simplified Evidence for Rapture Timing, plus discussion.

Part 2 on Session 6 follows but first read introductory Not blogging but the Lord…

Meditative morning coffee

Fresh CoffeeMulling over the content of the latest post upon awakening I knew which scripture would act as a bridge to follow-up teaching from Neville Johnson. (I didn’t expect yet another instance of what I’d noted of Charlie Shamp’s New Year word on the increase in prophetical sight and comprehension.)

It would be sensible, however, to check that verse’s context and so I dug into Romans chapter 8. And so I invite you to check and meditate along with me. I trust this will enable a good grasp of both posts. Here’s the NKJV text of Romans 8:14-22 with relevant and associated verses underscored:

‘For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.  For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”.

‘The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if  children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

‘For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

‘For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.’

In reading the chapter I especially noticed several other foundation points about living and walking not according to the flesh but to the Holy Spirit. This means we’re very different to those who are carnally minded. They’re figuratively ‘the walking-dead’ for they’re not blessed with the indwelling Holy Spirit, per verses 9-11:

‘But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.’

Contemplating the depth of Apostle Paul’s exposition I let those word soak into me, especially regarding suffering and what we’ve endured this year and previously.

Afterwards used my phone to log into WordPress (blog platform). It’s not an entirely  satisfactory method of blogging so gets rarely used other than for a quick check of my site’s appearance so I can see what some visitors will see.

This time I did something really unusual – I drilled down into yesterday’s statistics and looked at something I’ve never bothered with! It has various listings the lowest placed being ‘Clicks’. It seems this shows which links I’ve placed within the blog were clicked by readers to access those websites. I decided to follow one of them to see what my visitors would have seen – it’s ‘080808’.

It’s one I haven’t myself visited for a while and is a listing of revival prophecies for the British Isles opens by blogger by Chris Welch. His motto’s exactly appropriate for our consideration of ‘The Age to Come’.:

“Prepare for an adventure into the unknown, into a type of Christianity that has never been known before…”

He was recommended by a friend and so I checked the latest on his home page via my phone. His Google BlogSpot gives a convenient listing of that page not available on PC and I spotted a tantalising title and opened up The biggest breakthrough of all time.

It opens intriguingly,

Morris Cerullo says all truth is parallel.
What he means by this is what is spiritually true NOW and being revealed NOW is also working itself out in natural parallels.
Soon followed by,

THERE IS NOTHING HALF-HEARTED ABOUT ROMANS 8.   Everyone should read it regularly, for the same reason that a whole generation of us have repeatedly listened to this 1975 message by Ern Baxter.

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

WOW only minutes before had I read that in my study bible!! 

Please note I’m not endorsing Chris’ site or its content. I can but conclude the Lord’s hand led me in this instance…

Supermoon Monday’s ‘Blood Moon’ and the ‘Age to Come’

Red Moon Chart, credit Mark Biltz

In connection with Monday morning’s lunar eclipse, or ‘blood moon’, it’s opportune to meet an unfulfilled promise relating to prophetic words and teaching heard in April. In fact, their relevance relates to an insight I’d been blessed with on ‘The Age to Come’. Also, references to the work of OT prophet Daniel resonated with a personal prophetic word. (Publicly delivered, it’s available to read here.)

Therefore, it’s appropriate to look first at scriptures relating to that implicit waiting and looking forward to fulfilment of the Lord’s promised plans – even if in the far future!  I’ve  emphasised the parts relating to visionary-auditory revelation:

On Faith – Hebrews 11

‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible…

‘By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”;  for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. [Genesis 5:21-24 ‘All the days of Enoch were 365 years. And Enoch walked with God and was not found…’]

‘But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

‘By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

‘By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.’ (verses 11-13 omitted)

‘For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.

‘But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.’

The Book Beyond the Bible

At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, it comes after The Apocalypse, or Revelation, given to Jesus Christ for showing to and recording by His close disciple, the Apostle John.

As noted in Revival 1: glory stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its implicit existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!

That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.

2015 Feast of Tabernacles’ Blood Moon

Monday morning’s event was the fourth consecutive eclipse occurring on the first and last Jewish feast days on two subsequent years, as in the above chart by pastor Mark Biltz. So he described them as a ‘Blood Moon Tetrad’.

I recall his friend William Koenig referring to their discussions of 2007-8 on this, contrary to John Hagee’s false claims of later discovery; as disclosed here.  Mark’s research into NASA’s astronomical data may be read in Blood Moons: Adding Up The Evidence.

Now to expand upon what I blogged on Monday about Charlie Shamp’s position on that day’s blood moon.:

There was much new intellectual and spiritual food to digest from the Passover/Easter weekend conference reported here. I’d hoped to have shared some as the concluding part to ‘God-incidents’ validate cycles and point to the near future wherein I refer to 40 and 55 year cycles. The intention was to share something of what Charlie taught and connect it to what I was given and started noticing about 70-year cycles in connection with what he said about a specific date. (Sticking his neck out there!)

Charles_Brynn_Shamp_250px[1]How that conference started after worship is told in A vision: Sowing into the Kingdom of God. Whilst amazed at what I’d seen, I heard him refer to blood moons and correct the public misunderstanding gained from some sensationalist American journalism. As reported earlier, he believes Monday’s 4th blood moon marks the beginning of the time the Army of God will start appearing.

Charlie posits a two-year period starting on Monday 27th, in which we’re going to begin to see people who’ll be able to pray from within the Age to Come. Why two years? He explains,

“It leads to 23rd September 2017, which reveals something very special that we’re going to hear a lot about in coming days.

It’s a two-year period in which God is going to see how much He can trust you – because everybody wants to do the stuff, everyone wants to be able to work miracles – but how much can God actually trust you with that?”

To indicate what he means by this – and its spiritual importance – Charlie referred to God making Moses ‘as a god to pharaoh’ (Exodus 7).

“In other words He said to Moses; ‘I’m going to make you My mouthpiece, My oracle – that you’re not going to do anything out of line other than what I tell you’…

“So along with that revealing is a testing period…an emerging of  a generation, which I believe that God is offering to everybody, but there will be a company that actually walk into this!

“It’s a crossing over of a Melchizedek-type priesthood with its kings on the earth…”

In answering his “Why September 23rd 2017?” I’d have told of its personal significance. Instead, he answers by talking about the prophet Daniel, whom he thinks could enter the ‘heavens’ and live in the future. There, he learnt about astronomical events for the time appointed for the Messiah’s birth in Bethlehem.

Accordingly, Daniel could see that ‘star’ and bequeathed this knowledge to his school of Magi, as well as arranged in advance for them to present specific gifts to the Christ-child. That is, Daniel was living in and operating out of the Glory of God within ‘The Age to Come’!

Then, teaching from Revelation 12, Charlie considers how this scripture suggests the very same zodiacal configuration and alignment known to Daniel set for Jesus’ birth – will be once again be of astronomical significance on 23rd September 2017. (Not as a Venus-Jupiter conjunction I’d assumed; see NASA’s Sky Events 2017 calendar.)

For details of the astronomical alignment and biblical significance read a brief blog by Mark Conn published in January 2014: Revelation 12, Blood Moons and April 2014. (Note that Charlie would agree with the opening caveat re astrology. Mark makes very brief references to a possibility of the Tribulation – June 2014 saw ISIS sweep across Iraq with an extensive, barbaric persecution of Christians.)

VenusandJupiter 2015UPDATE: for details and significance of Venus-Jupiter conjunctions in 2015 see Nelson Walters’ post on Star of Bethlehem Repeats Again This Week in The Gospel in the End Times. It’s interesting that this biblically erudite blogger whose work I’ve previously drawn attention to, appreciates the importance of astronomical events.

More…

Spiral stairway to cloudsAnother of Charlie’s comments that plugged into what I’d done only recently was his saying the Jewish Temple had two spiral stairways. This reminded me of my selecting the image of a double-spiral and describing a spiral staircase to depict the corkscrew nature of Time itself in The ‘Endgame’ gets ramped up another level. That was a sensitive week or so in blogging, as explained in the subsequent part 2, to which this post acts as a successor.

On the final day of the conference Charlie spoke about the astronomical situation at the start of Islam, about which I’d been blogging – our eyeballs locked as he addressed me personally when talking about it! (How did he know? Did Holy Spirit tell him?)

Assessment

In our weighing this inspirational teaching let’s look at pertinent points of what Charlie published on New Year’s Day under Prayer Points for 2015-20. I’ve found the first part to be accurate (as underlined), as may be inferred from several of my blogs. So I have a confidence in the possible accuracy of subsequent part’s promises (as reported above):

The Seer Anointing Intensified (extract)

‘The Lord spoke to me and said that this will be a year that the seers are coming into their multi-dimensional sight. A new realm of the prophetic will be birthed this year. In January many prophetic people will enter into a season of incubation for greater manifestation. The Lord showed me that from January to September will be a time of preparation for what is going to be birthed towards the end of September after the final blood moon on the 28th of that month…This nine-month period will be a time for the conception and forming of a supernatural movement to be birthed into earth…

‘There will be a birthing of a greater glory at the end of September. A place of unusual power will begin to flow towards the end of 2015 like we have never seen before. Many will begin to taste of the age to come. There will be a prophetic people that will begin to emerge toward the end of next year that will speak a wisdom that is not of this world. They will manifest a message from an age to come. They will transcend the system of the world and operate from a higher order of the supernatural. A Daniel company is coming! This will be a company of prophets who can discern our times with pinpoint accuracy. Some will be given high places to speak into earthly governments around the world. They will have a mandate from The Lord to administer justice and solve complex situations that human intellect can not understand.’

A scriptural context of the 4th lunar eclipse of the ‘Blood Moon Tetrad’

[Readers to whom this concept is new are directed to explanatory material in Passover and blood-red moons, which is continued in 500th post – itself a useful review for new subscribers.]

In the Book of Joel, chapter 2 verses 28-32, the prophet receives a word from the Lord that was famously fulfilled on and after the feast of Pentecost whereupon God’s Holy Spirit was poured out on Jesus’ first apostles and disciples:

Charlie ShampOn Good Friday last we heard a novel, positive prophetical exposition on the scriptural meaning of the blood moons. At the Passover-Easter conference referred to earlier, Charles Shamp shared his interesting insights the gist of which is as follows.:

This year’s Passover-Easter with its blood moon, he offers, was the opening up of a significant time and season that may, however, have elements that could be used as satanic strategy.

“I’m seeing all these (American) books about doom and gloom; ‘the four blood moons’… ‘the Apocalypse’…’The Antichrist’ – but you know that actually the blood moons reveal the Army of God…

“They’re not teaching that; they’re teaching that the Antichrist is coming to take over the world – but when you read the Book of Joel, the blood moon actually reveals the Army of God.

“We’re standing at a strategic time right now. Actually in September – the 27th – is going to be the fourth blood moon. No it’s not going to be the Antichrist – it’s actually going to be a revealing, of the beginning, of the Army of God.

“You know, the Bible says the heavens declare the Glory of God – not the destruction of God, not the doom and gloom of God – but the Glory!. The heavens show us His Glory. They show us signs that don’t point to death but point to life!”

That is, Charlie considers that the fourth blood-moon over this Sunday-Monday, starting the Feast of Tabernacles at sundown Sunday, is going to open up the beginning of the time of the Army of God. He believes this weekend will actually begin a two-year period where we’re going to begin to see people who are going to pray things from the Age to Come. Thus, the next two years until September 2017 are going to be very special, not judgmental and destructive.

So we shall see. We can soon check the accuracy of such thoughts on this matter…

Revisiting ‘Sowing into the Kingdom’ re. ‘loaning’ to the Lord

Figuratively speaking, my guardian angel may have knocked the postman’s hand and caused him to drop whatever he was delivering. Whilst he was picking it up, the angel must have deposited some ‘post’ for me to receive and work on Wednesday last week.

Upon opening the envelope I found another piece to the week’s jigsaw puzzle. Maybe it’s an important piece because what I was blogging on A vision: sowing into the Kingdom of God didn’t flow easily and I was unable to find any notes on the essential reference.

Bear with me, therefore, in revisiting Charlie Shamp’s ideas on sowing into the Kingdom so I can clarify any misunderstanding, as well as to update and look at any scriptural warrant for his opinion:

Whilst watching an open vision of money swirling around him, I half-listened to Charlie as he spoke on the value of sowing into a ministry. He made an unusual analogy I’d not heard before.

The usual pastoral approach is that, like any offering, sowing into a ministry is donating to the Lord’s purposes and we’re paying back a little of what we owe Him. Standing in front of Charlie I recall that “God is a debtor to no-one”, and yet in Malachi 3:10 He tells us to test him in tithing and promises to “throw open the floodgates of heaven”!

However, as Charlie said something that seems radically different to scripture I have reservations and intend checking it the next day. I didn’t do it at the time because he went on to talk in-depth about the availability of the ‘Age to Come’.

Charlie ShampHe addressed me direct and our gaze locked, “Consider what a banker does when offering a loan: he sets the terms to our taking the loan and expects it to be repaid”. Charlie implies it’s not unreasonable to do that with the Lord; that is, to set terms as well as remind Him of them and to call in the ‘repayment’, as in reaping fruit from the seed we’ve sown.

So I must seek the Lord on Charlie’s claim and check it against scripture. The next day, however, I’m nudged to look for a verse which isn’t directly relevant. But it leads to the answer I need, the notes for which I’ve now found in an email and reading as follows:

…Next morning I looked up ‘Age to come’ in my study Bible and found its reference in Mark 10:29-31 answers my reservation AND the footnote to which reads, ‘Jesus will be a debtor to no-one. The blessings he gives far outweigh material loss and persecution incurred in serving Him’.

Mark 10:29-31 reads: So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundred-fold now in this time — houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions — and in the age to come, eternal life.  But many who are first will be last, and the last first.” (Courtesy Biblegateway.com

This spoke to me personally in view of my experiences. Furthermore, in the parable of talents (Matt 25:14-30) Jesus instructs disciples to put what God gives us to wise use, to invest and multiply it.

Therefore, I conclude it’s not unreasonable when donating funds to His work to remind the Lord of those scriptures and that we’re entitled to expect the promised reward.

In addition, there’s no reason for not discussing this further with Father as His ‘sons’ and in being quite specific in our requests.

Those verses eased and satisfied my reservations. I hope they may answer your queries too?

Jigsaw Time – Part 2: Charles Shamp prophetic word for 2015-20

Note: As with all prophetical material this is offered for weighing for alignment with holy scripture and for waiting upon the Lord.

I first read this mightily encouraging word brought by Charles Shamp after his meeting held in Guildford over the Passover-Easter weekend. It was my intention to provide a brief summary of a few points of personal interest and link into this published word. But delays arose and then a few pieces of a jigsaw puzzle came together, as told in Part 1.

The word comes in three parts of which two cover medical/technological developments in certain nations and the possibility of natural disasters. The first and main part is for The Church and has a double aspect: The Year of the Epikaizo (Overshadowing) and its effect upon increasing seer anointing, culminating on 28th September on Sukkot, the Jewish Feast of Booths or Tabernacles.

PROPHETIC PRAYER POINTS FOR 2015-2020 (click to read in full):

Epikaizo, or the Overshadowing, from Jan to Sept 28 blood moon.

“The word Epikaizo in all is the manifestation of God’s power where the natural laws are cancelled out in obedience to God who is a Spirit. The EPIKAIZO carries the eternal manifestation of heaven that is revealed at a place or upon someone. This is what days of heaven on earth truly looks like. A place of multiplied miracles and heavenly harvest. That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord swore unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.”  (Deuteronomy‬ ‭11‬:‭21‬ KJV)

Seer Anointing Intensifies in 2015

“The Lord spoke to me and said that this will be a year that the seers are coming into their multi-dimensional sight. A new realm of the prophetic will be birthed this year. In January many prophetic people will enter into a season of incubation for greater manifestation. The Lord showed me that from January to September will be a time of preparation for what is going to be birthed towards the end of September after the final blood moon on the 28th of that month. Many have seen the blood moons as a sign of judgement, but both the book of Joel and Acts interpret the moon turning to blood as a wonder in the heavens to reveal a greater power of God on the earth, The Army of The Lord. This nine month period will be a time for…” (continued here with the full prophecy).

Noticeably, this word goes on to say, “What we will begin to understand in a great way in 2015 is that peace is the cradle that holds prophetic power…”, thus synchronizing with and emphasising a new ‘piece’ in the puzzle: Blessed are the Peacemakers by Joanne Rolston. (Published today, and note the double-pun of ‘piece’ and ‘peace’!)

I recall hearing Charlie tell how the concept of overshadowing is based upon Genesis 1:1-3,

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light”, and there was light. (NIV)

His explanation of this ‘brooding’ of Holy Spirit is very interesting for he thinks that when the Almighty saw His reflection, He perceived a place where His glory could dwell. So the Creator went into action and created light in the heavens and life on earth.

Thus, the more we let the Spirit within us manifest Jesus to others, then Father will see His reflection and pour out His nature and glory upon us all.

Lord let that be so…
