Believers take a stand. Call for CofE reforms explodes

A fascinating fact in this latest of Gavin Ashenden’s ‘over the Pond’ chats is that the Church Times wouldn’t refer to him for years because of his orthodox stance. BUT in view of over a thousand more signatures from clergy and laity appended to the letter to the Telegraph, it recognizes a movement is starting and quickly published two reports:

Rebels? In church? Just who’s rebelling??

My friend and author of The Pursuit of Pleasure and Feasting on the Father, Revd William Smith, emailed me today in response to my last post’s reference to Gavin Ashenden leading a group of ‘rebel Anglicans’. I have Bill’s kind permission to publish his reaction:

Dear Richard,

REBELS?

Grace, mercy and peace to you both in our Beloved Saviour and King.

Following on from yesterdays “Watch” with the Gavin Ashenden article, I believe we have the wrong emphasis on this. (ie. in Christian Today article).

Gavin, GAFCON, and the open letter to York, are in no way rebellious. These precious faithful ones are simply that, faithful ones.

The rebels are all those who have abandoned biblical teaching in favour of contemporary ideas and unrighteous ways. It is Lambeth Palace, the Synod (in general), the supporters of “Pride” etc, who have left the truth and are in rebellion against God and His revealed ways for human behaviour.

I have said this elsewhere and feel very strongly that we should be declaring this unashamedly and unapologetically.

The rebels are those who have turned from God, not those who are walking faithfully with Him.

There is a pressing need for Anglicanism, and much of the rest of ‘the church’ to be made aware of this. To recognise the truth of what I have here written and for there to be a turning in support of these faithful ones in rejection of the others. It is being portrayed wrongly making the “rebels” (the faithful) to be those destroying the so called unity of the church, while all the time they are upholding its faithful following of The Lord Jesus. (Rant over)

I do believe we urgently need to redress the prevailing attitude and see Truth restored, the bible honoured, celebrated and followed, rather than being shamed as divisive.

For your thoughts.

Much blessing and encouragement as this battle intensifies as biblical truth is so under threat from within.

In Victorious King Jesus, I bless you both.

Bill, 31st July 2017

POSTSCRIPT

It’s worth noting today’s newspaper item on the Roman Catholic Bishop of Shrewsbury, Rt Revd Mark Davies that Christians could be treated as extremists in being targeted by the Government’s new counter-extremism measures. He’s not the first to have expressed deep reservations over these plans. (Digital version not available)

Are traditional, Bible-believing Christians the new heretics??

Based upon the widespread bigotry expressed over PM May’s post-election decision on forming a working majority, Voice for Justice UK follows up on the request to petition the government about free speech for Christians in Parliament with this further appeal:

THERE IS A NEW HERESY

‘To ensure a functioning Parliamentary majority Theresa May concludes a deal with the DUP; in the interests of transparency publishes the agreement in full; and is immediately accused of giving them a ‘bung’.  Criticisms abound, especially from the Welsh and Scottish Assemblies, who would also like more money – no surprise there then.  But surely the most pernicious and worrying criticisms come from those who attack the DUP for their unashamedly Christian stance on moral issues that the UK has now ideologically redefined, and imposed by law.

‘Ex-Tory chairman Chris Patten has reportedly predicted that the ‘toxic brand’ of the DUP will taint Theresa May and harm the Conservative party, specifically identifying the DUP’s hard-line stance on issues such as gay equality (see for example, Evening Standard).

‘How is it people today can so easily be branded toxic, intolerant, and bigoted simply because they adhere to the traditional teachings of Christianity, and refuse to endorse abortion, or same sex marriage?   As far as can be ascertained, the DUP have never at any time expressed ‘hatred’ for those who support such choices: they have simply said they disagree, citing as cause the moral incompatibility of such practices with Christian faith.

‘As it is, the universal condemnation and vilification of this identifiably ‘Christian’ party by gay marriage supporters, so strongly articulated by the likes of Chris Patten and Ruth Davidson – who demanded and was given assurance that there would be no rescission of LGBTI rights – speaks volumes.

Who are the real bigots here?  Who the real peddlers of hatred and intolerance? 

‘Sadly, what we are seeing is nothing less than the systemic demonization of Christians by those who want justification and social endorsement of the new morality, and who want to drive all expression of Christianity from the public arena.

‘As stressed previously: Christian faith is being increasingly suppressed by the relentless drive of Secular and LGBT activists. It is time for the intolerance, bigotry and intimidation of these so-called liberals to be exposed.’

Christians, it’s time to PETITION FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Further to my call three weeks ago today in Time to take a stand against the fascism of ‘Christophobia’ and Revd Gavin Ashenden’s First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you, it’s time to protect Christian MPs’ and our rights to free speech.

Gavin exposed the inclusion of the Qur’an in the Eucharist at Glasgow Cathedral, and we are seeing Christians increasingly ridiculed and vilified in the public arena before the relentless drive of Secular and LGBTQ activism.

Therefore and for the good of the nation, the time has come to stand against activists’ schemes to suppress Christian belief across the public sphere AND in our personal lives, as is well-known and documented.

Please read Voice for Justice UK’s following email and seriously consider petitioning to ‘Protect Christian MPs Right to Free Speech. Don’t Allow Secular and LGBT Activists to Suppress Christian belief‘.:

‘Christian faith is being increasingly suppressed by the relentless drive of Secular and LGBTQ activists.

‘It is time for the intolerance, bigotry and intimidation of so-called liberals to be exposed.

‘Following delivery of our petition calling for the reinstatement of former Tory MP for the Isle of Wight Andrew Turner – forced to resign for saying he believed homosexuality was wrong and a danger to society – we are now launching a fresh campaign calling for the government to  protect the right to free speech of all current and future Christian MPs.

‘Standing on Articles 9 and 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998 – respectively protecting the rights to freedom of thought, belief, and religion; and the freedom to hold and express your own opinions – we assert the right to follow and practise without impediment or restraint our Christian faith, and to express without fear of condemnation or intimidation the core beliefs on which our faith is founded and as set down in the Bible.

We call for freedom of belief and of speech for all.

‘And we call for all political parties to uphold the right of both current and future MPs to express support for traditional Christian belief, without fear of intimidation by activist groups seeking to silence dissent by unjustified accusations of bigotry and hatred.’

Mighty word of encouragement for Britain via David Noakes

As we know, David Noakes brought an accurate word in 2015 from the Lord about His urging Britain to come out of the EU (and the shaking of the latter), so I’m grateful to the managing editor for permission to reprint Prophetic Encouragement from yesterday’s Prophecy Today UK. It reiterates Dr Sharon Stone’s Clarion Call for England for 2014-16 and beyond about this spiritual battle being the way to victory. The word David delivers is introduced by Clifford Hill:

It is not just Christians who can see that the nation is in trouble. Everyone can see that things have not been going well in Britain recently. The terrorist attacks, the Grenfell Tower inferno, and the hung Parliament all confirm that something is wrong in the nation.

Many Christians know that as a nation we have rejected the word of God in many ways which has resulted in Britain being no longer under God’s cover of protection, prosperity and blessing.

‘Confusion’ is one of the signs of judgment upon a nation, according to Deuteronomy 28:20. But Jeremiah 18:7 reminds us that even when things go badly wrong, if we repent of our wrongdoing and ask for God’s help, things would quickly improve. Through Jeremiah God says:

If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.

God still speaks to us today so that we can understand what is happening and how he is working out his purposes. This enables us as Christians to speak to others, Christians and non-Christians, reassuring them of God’s love and his desire to bless the nation, restoring peace and prosperity.

The latest word received by my colleague David Noakes (we have worked together since 1984) brings this reassurance. We reproduce it below noting that we do not claim that modern prophecy carries the same authority as the Bible. But God does speak to those who are listening to him, although we express what we are receiving in our own human language and understanding. It is for each of our readers to weigh this prophecy.

Rev Dr Clifford Hill

PROPHETIC WORD, first given at East Grinstead (17 June 2017)

David Noakes:

Beloved, you are living in momentous days. These are truly the days of a turning point in the affairs of your nation. It is a time of my appointing. I have allowed you to go your own way but I have never let go of you.

There are many voices in your midst which are full of pessimism and I understand that if you look upon your circumstances, pessimism is often the outcome. But I want you to perceive as I perceive.

Beloved, when there is turmoil and upheaval, do not look upon it with dismay; do not look upon it with foreboding; do not look upon it with fear. But look upon it with eyes turned to me with a questioning heart: a heart questioning what your God is doing in the midst of it. For beloved, all these things taking place are under my hand. I have brought about a remarkable work in your nation in recent times. This is not accidental, nor is it sudden, but has come about at my appointed time.

I do not have accidents; I do not have coincidences; I do not have sudden unexpected events. I have appointed events, at appointed times, and I am the one who is seated in the heavens and does whatever He pleases. Do not lose heart, because I am in charge. My hand is on your nation and I have not given up my purposes for you.

I have blessed your nation in the past and truly you have been faithless; but beloved, I have remained faithful. Your enemy has done much to sow lies, to sow false doctrine, to try to bring down all that is good and all that is of God. But I have kept for myself a remnant. My Word remains true for all time and all eternity and I will fulfil my purposes.

This is a time of turmoil and upheaval because your adversary is in great rage and great fear. He is in great consternation that I will use your nation to tear his purposes apart. But that is exactly what I intend to do. I intend to bring his purposes crashing down. There will be turmoil and upheaval; there will be blood in the streets; there will be anxiety amongst those who do not know that God is in charge and do not understand what I am doing.

Beloved, there cannot be victory in war without war taking place; and war is indeed taking place, because I have joined battle. I have joined battle against the forces of darkness which desire to bring your nation to nothing and I have declared I will not have it so. My purposes for you are from all eternity. I have known exactly what I will do at this time. I have known exactly what I will do in the future and I purpose to glorify my name through your nation once again.

Therefore do not be disheartened. Do you think of yourself as being just a little flock? Truly there is only a small remnant who hold fast to My word. But beloved, continue to hold fast to my word and pray that the purposes that I have begun to reveal will come to fruition and fulfilment, and I will visit you afresh with my Spirit.

I will visit you afresh with my Spirit that you may be empowered: Not for your glory, but for Mine. Not to build empires but to build my Church. I desire also to visit you with my Spirit that you may be instruments in my hand to go into the fields which are ripe for harvest, and bring in a harvest; for there is a harvest waiting to be brought in.

There are many in fear and trepidation and utter confusion, and I want you to be a people who know their God and do exploits. I want you to be a people of compassion; not of judgement; not of condemnation. Judgement is mine, I will repay. But I ask you to be a people of love and concern; of compassion for the lost, and of deep desire that the truth should be brought to many who will understand it and be saved. For surely there are those whom you think are your enemies, who are longing for truth.

Do not be down-hearted, therefore. Do not be dispirited. Yes, I know all too well that you are surrounded by those who wish you ill. Beloved, do not heed them but look to your God who wishes you well. Look to your God who wishes them well. I desire a people who are willing to bless their enemies and to do good to those who speak evil about them.

As you do this they will see your light. Many will reject, but many will see the light in the darkness and will desire the only light they can see. For all their plans and schemes will have fallen to the ground and then they will turn to the only truth.

Do not give up therefore. Hold fast. Hold fast to Me. Hold fast to My Word. Hold fast in love and unity, to one another. Be loyal and faithful to each other. Forgive each other all offences and stand together, that as one you may show the character of your Lord and Saviour. Beloved, understand that I have not given up, and I say to you: do not give up either, but look to Me and hope in Me that I will do what I have planned.

First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you!

Tim Farron is not just a former leader of the Liberal Party; he has become a mirror in which we see our reflection as a society. He is gagged and sacked.

Revd Gavin Ashenden, a stalwart servant of the Lord in the CoE, brings a forthright alert to ALL Christians in Britain > First they came for Tim Farron – soon they’ll come for you. 

Time to take a stand against fascism of ‘Christophobia’

First, let’s recall a prediction that applies to everybody no matter who, because it comes from the one who is The Spirit of Prophecy (Revelation 19:10). Thus it’s true information about our personal post-mortem state of play:

“I tell you my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. Be afraid of him who, after killing the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him…I tell you, whoever acknowledges Me before men, I will also acknowledge him before My Father in heaven and the angels of God. But who disowns Me before men will be disowned before My Father in heaven and the angels of God. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven!” (Luke 12:4-10 with Matthew 10:32-3 NIV)

Having no time for Antichrist spirit’s influence within politics I admire anyone attempting to practise and apply their faith within government. Although I don’t support his policies I’ve noticed Tim Farron’s evangelical faith wobble under frequent vicious attacks by reprobate souls within his party and the media (Stop banging on about my faith). So I have huge admiration for his decision announced last night:

“To be a political leader – especially of a progressive liberal party in 2017 – and to live as a committed Christian, to hold to the Bible’s teaching, has felt impossible for me.

“I seem to be the subject of suspicion because of what I believe and who my faith is in. In which case we are kidding ourselves if we think we yet live in a tolerant, liberal society. That’s why I’ve chosen to step down as leader of the Liberal Democrats.” (Telegraph, emphasis RB.)

Were Tim a Muslim, he’d have been safe because the nampy-pamby brigade would have been silent through fear of criminal prosecution under hate speech and ‘Islamophobia’. In my opinion, churches should start lobbying government to introduce the crime of ‘Christophobia’ – ie. all expressions of hatred against Christians and their beliefs.

But that brigade think they can get away with intimidating and persecuting anyone who believes in Jesus Christ and His true teachings. (That is, REAL Christianity, not the oxymoronic concept of thinking it’s ok to be LGBT-etc and disobey scripture and Jesus’ commands. Such confused folk think Jesus has changed His mind – like the Muslim deity abrogates its teaching – and permits disciples to follow Him, even to expect to be ‘married’ in ‘church’ – ie. an apostate one!). Poor lost souls – acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord means doing what He says. He strongly warned them that many who call Him ‘Lord’ won’t be allowed into His Kingdom simply because they choose not to follow his instructions, as told in the previous post by my dear namesake.

Cyber-‘Archbishop Cranmer’ covers Tim’s news with a denunciation of failures to support him by fellow believers in the LibDems and by Archbishop Justin Welby’s lamenting too late – see It’s not that Christians can’t lead political parties; it’s that Evangelical Christians can’t lead the Liberal Democrats. Blogger Adrian Hilton concludes,

‘Tim Farron is indeed honourable and decent, and he has honourably and decently concluded that it is not possible to be a Christian and lead a political party in the modern era (not, as the Archbishop of Canterbury states, that “he can’t be in politics”). Yet a Christian leads the Conservatives. A Christian leads the DUP. A Christian led Ukip, and Labour, and the SDLP and the UUP. But these Christians tend to hold a view of their faith which coheres with the majority of their party: some are more secular-liberal; others more orthodox and robust. What Tim Farron has established is not that it’s impossible to be a Christian and a Liberal Democrat, but that it’s not possible to be an Evangelical Christian and lead the Liberal Democrats. It’s an important distinction which appears to have escaped the journalistic commentary on this matter.

But here’s a thing. If, as the Archbishop of Canterbury states, the media and politicians have questions to answer over Tim Farron’s forced resignation for daring to think and believe differently on abortion and homosexuality, do not the media and bishops have questions to answer over Philip North’s forced resignation for thinking and believing differently on the ordination of women? Does his treatment not stem from the same totalitarian intolerance of theological difference, and form part of the same drive to impose a kind of gender-sexuality moral uniformity?‘ (Emphasis mine.)

A couple of days ago Tim Stanley’s opinion piece It Has Become Politically Toxic To Be A Christian (‘premium’ content) was published in which he says,

‘I’m writing in response to anger at the DUP coming to the rescue of Theresa May. As a Catholic, I should be flattered by the liberals’ righteous fury: the Protestant DUP are the stuff of sectarian nightmares. But I notice that far more has been written about the DUP’s views on sexuality than their views on the Pope. They have failed the modern religious test, which is to say they have the cheek to still believe in God in 2017…

‘(Tim Farron) was probably inclined to ignore the question because it is, strictly speaking, irrelevant. Like the vast majority of Christians, Tim is constitutionally liberal: he doesn’t want to tell others how to live, he just wants the freedom for everyone to live in peace.

‘But that’s not good enough now. You can’t simply tolerate. You must celebrate. If you don’t, there’s no place for you in politics…

‘One might ask why the religious ethics of Belfast matter at all: social issues are a devolved question. But when the DUP marched into the limelight, liberals saw a chance to attack their biblical literalism and reaffirm that it is they – not the rednecks in the pews – who define what is and isn’t acceptable in 21st-century Britain.

I’m amazed that after the last few days the DUP are still willing to help the mainland out. They’ve been subjected to every “violent paddy” stereotype going, including from socialists who have an otherwise rosy view of the IRA…

‘The frustrating thing is that very few liberals are prepared to meet religious folk where they are. Arlene Foster, leader of the DUP, says one reason why she won’t soften her position on gay marriage is because of the “vicious” abuse she’s received for it.

Britain’s social divisions are thus accentuated by a refusal to acknowledge not only that people have other opinions but that they have the right to hold those opinions.’ (Emphases mine.)

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Taking another tack: a year after the murder of Jo Cox MP and in honour of her proud independence and nonconformity in raising difficult issues for government, the senior editors of the Guardian and the Telegraph met to discuss and further the freedom of the press in investigating those who abuse their positions of power. Although of differing persuasions, both editors had no hesitation to unite in standing up for George Orwell’s insight (author of the futuristic fable of fascism, 1984):

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they don’t want to hear.”

This means freedom of speech to express one’s opinion, whether or not others may hold different, legitimate views.

REMEMBER, FREEDOM OF BELIEF, CONSCIENCE & SPEECH DOES NOT APPLY TO CHRISTIANS WHO RUN FOUL OF OFFICIALDOM, MEDIA AND LGBT BIGOTRY – for examples of many cases visit Christian Concern and The Christian Institute.

EG. Felix Ngole is a Christian student who has been removed from his university social work course after commenting on his personal Facebook page in support of biblical teaching on marriage and sexual ethics. He writes, “I was thrown off my master’s course in social work because I expressed the bible’s teaching on sexual ethics, on Facebook and was told that my beliefs made me unfit to practise as a social worker. With help from the Christian Legal Centre, I tried to get the decision reversed but Sheffield University refused. Even before I had finished my course, I was effectively ‘barred from office‘. I had to challenge this decision, because freedom is at stake. And with CLC support, we went to the High Court. I praise God that the High Court agreed that Sheffield University’s decision could be scrutinised. Felix now asks, “Will you join me in standing for free speech?”

We know from BBC Watch how the badly biased BBC always blames Israel for anything in the Middle-East (see 6-Day War). The once distinguished corporation has thus become unreliable as a source of news and many morally deficient programmes. Therefore, it’s no surprise to learn about satan’s spirit of mockery presiding there, as shown via the once respected and intelligent presenter John Hymphry’s remarks about Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (BBC Mocks Pro-marriage Pro-life Views). Haughty smirks and laughter will vanish when finding he’s not acknowledged in heaven; not even getting a “Depart from me you who practise lawlessness”?

To return to some sanity read the CI’s overview Evangelicals Defend DUP, which briefly covers the link on the DUP at the close of this blog’s Fulfilled Prophecies #21.

In view of yesterday’s word on A Holy Shaking for London and the news of Tim Farron’s resignation perhaps it’s no coincidence that Kensington’s dreadful towering inferno was dubbed in one paper today as ‘Hell On Earth’ (as herein)!!

SO it’s well-nigh time we Christians stand up against the bigotry of our adversary’s fleshly cohorts for, as scripture foretells, they’re on the losing side! May each and every one of them be blessed with their own ‘Damascus road’ experience of meeting the living Christ.

Charles Shamp #1 of 3: Urgent prophetic words on UK’s situation

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

NOTE – This is the opening part of a longer post published on 6th June by UK Prophetic Words and which may be read in its entirety at Urgent Word about England, Terrorism, Brexit, Theresa May, The Lion of Judah is Calling You To ROAR. (The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link).

Suzanne Payne writes.:

This is a long but very significant, urgent and important prophetic word relating to the current situation in England with terrorism, Brexit and Theresa May. This is from a video Charlie Shamp posted on his Facebook page today; do listen if you can; I’ve transcribed most of it:

CHARLIE SHAMP – 4th June 2017

Charlie speaks about the Word he gave for England in Dec 2016 (see below at #3), about how it was a season of contention in the realm of the spirit (for the heart and soul of the nation). Before any of the attacks happened, the Lord showed Charlie on 11 Dec 2016 that there was going to be a season of contention in the realm of the Spirit, but that after the BREXIT was over with, after England comes out of the EU, there is going to be a cutting of those ties, and the Lord showed him there’s going to be a beast that was going to try to come out of Brussels, and this beast is going to be cut off: the spirit of terrorism, and He said that the spirit of terrorism, connected with Islam, is also connected in with the EU.

And as England and the UK breaks from the EU, there’s going to be a SEVERING of all ties with that and God is going to HEAL THE LAND.

And the Lord gave him a word concerning Theresa May (see below at #2) on May 10th that Theresa May is going to bloom in May, and that in June she’s going to shine like a star.

Charlie shares that he has a real heart for the UK, he has travelled across the UK and his heart is breaking but he realises what is coming. He wants to tell the UK to stay strong right now; the Lord has already revealed what the cause of this is. The cause of the terrorist attacks is because of the BREXIT. The enemy does not want the people of England, the people of the UK to come out of the EU. But the Lord told them in December when he released the Word, that there would be contention in the realm of the Spirit, and that it was all based upon the BREXIT, but when the UK comes out of the EU and there’s a breaking, that season of contention is going to be over. Charlie said in December 2016 that the enemy was going to come for the gates and he was going to come for the heart of England. But the lion is going to roar.

This is a season that the UK is in contention but June is going to be a time of Theresa May shining. This Word about her May is very important because God has positioned her, and the enemy is not going to be able to move here out of her place; the Lord has set her there and she’s a watchman over the nation. And the Lord is going to use her. The Bible says a three-cord strand is not easily broken and the Lord told Charlie that He is going to link Theresa May, the Queen and the UK together, and He’s going to break and sever the tide of terrorism. Charlie then reads this Word…continue reading at #2.

Charles Shamp #2 of 3: Theresa May will shine like a star

NOTE – This is the second part of a longer post published on 6th June by UK Prophetic Words and which may be read in its entirety at Urgent Word about England, Terrorism, Brexit, Theresa May, The Lion of Judah is Calling You To ROAR. (The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link).

Continuing from #1, Charlie expands upon the serious spiritual contention and warfare over the Lord’s will for Britain, expanding upon Theresa May’s role therein (see also post-election comment below and subsequent posts):

A Prophetic Word for the UK: MAY WILL SHINE LIKE A STAR – 10th May 2017

“May will bloom in the month of May. I have given her grace to run her race. She is a diamond in the royal crown. She has been sent and set in her place by me to help the Queen and the United Kingdom. Her legacy has been set in stone, she will not be moved or removed. In June she will shine bright for the world to see!”

The Lord gave me a verse out of Isaiah for Theresa May, the Queen, and the United Kingdom:

“Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.”

Charlie then says I want you to get this because I feel it so strong in my spirit. God is doing something and he’s going to sever the tide, this root of religion that is of Islam that is coming out of the UK right now. And God is going to marry you again. AS the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall God rejoice over thee.

I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Isaiah 62:3-7

Charlie continues: The Lord told me that Theresa May has been sent and set by the Lord as a watcher over the crown and the United Kingdom for the Queen. She will not fail, but will be faithful and finish the course. She is a diamond and a bright star that will shine for the world to see. The United Kingdom has been sealed for the BREXIT, it will come to pass.

I don’t care what the enemy tries to do, even over the next several weeks. There is a turning of the tide, there is a blessing that’s coming, and when the enemy comes in like a flood, God is going to raise up a standard. And I want to tell all my friends, those that I love in England,  that God has sealed the UK for the BREXIT, and the enemy is trying to put fear on the people, in order to try to draw them back in, to that beast, that beast out of Brussels. But the Lord says you have to cut and sever the root of religion.

And I’m telling you right now, I’m praying for you England, I’m staying in constant communication with some of those I’m close with over there, but this is a time that the UK is going to shine. This is a time that Theresa May is going to shine in June, and it’s going to be overwhelming after this election, and there’s going to be a wave of favour that’s going to come.

The BREXIT is going to happen, the enemy cannot stop it, England/the UK is coming out of the EU, God has already said it, the scroll has already been released … I said it in 2015 in England when I was ministering in Norwich … I saw in the spirit that God was going to link the US and the UK together, and that as the Lion roars the Eagle was going to fly. We said that as the lion roars in freedom in the UK and there’s a changing of the government, there’s a shifting of the freedom of the lion roaring, that at the same time there was going to be something that was going to happen in America where the Eagle was going to come back and it was going to begin to soar and fly and we said that in 2015.

… And then in December we released the Word (see #3). I’m telling you what’s happening right now in England is the root of religion, of Islam is being pulled out of the country, and BREXIT is happening, and the enemy is trying to fight right now, with his last breath. And we saw this in December … while I was staying on the Island of Mull, I had a night vision, the day before the US election, I had an encounter where I saw a man walking through the land, and I said Lord who is that man? and He said that’s My church in England, that’s My people in England, that’s My church in the UK; those are My people. And suddenly there was a root, a root of religion, a root that came out of the ground, and it wrapped around the man, and it was like a snake, it came and wrapped around the body of the man, and I said Lord what is that? He said that’s the root of religion, He said it’s two fold, a two fold religious root. And this root had tentacles on it. I said Lord what is this two fold root of religion and tradition? He said it’s the root of religion and tradition that makes My people be quiet and silent when the enemy is destroying them. And He said it’s a root of religion that is trying to suffocate them.

And as I saw this, the root went and wrapped around the mouth of the man, and began to suffocate Him. And I said Lord, how can we stop this? And the Lord said to me, He said that it’s Matthew chapter 3 … And I’m telling you England it is not a time to be silent, it is a time to STAND UP and ROAR. The people of England, the people of the UK, it’s time to STAND UP and begin to DECREE and DECLARE, and begin to ROAR. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is calling you to ROAR right now.

The enemy is trying to come in and to take the heart of the country, and unless you ROAR, unless you ROAR, that enemy’s trying to come and he’s going to take your heart. And I’m telling you the Lord wants to release the Lion Heart of God, the Lion Heart of the Lord. And the Lord told me that it was Matthew chapter 3, and He said it’s verse 10 and 11: And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the tree therefore every tree therefore that beareth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Ghost and in fire.

And the Lord spoke to me and said that the people of England are going to be baptized in the fire of the Holy Spirit; there’s a fresh baptism for the church in the UK OF THE FIRE OF God, that as they GO and PRAY, and they begin to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, that the AXE is going to be LAID at the ROOT of the tree of RELIGION and TRADITION, it’s going to be laid at the ROOT of ISLAMIC TERRORISM, and that root is going to be PULLED OUT of the country.

And the Lord said to me to pray for you tonight, all my friends in the UK …the SPIRIT of FEAR is trying to come in to PULL you BACK from the BREXIT. And the tentacles, and that beast that’s in BRUSSELS is trying to PULL you back in, to NOT BREAK AWAY. But I want to release strength, I want to release courage, and I want to release this fresh baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire to you tonight, and as you go to pray, that boldness like a LION is going to come upon you, and you’re going to begin to prophesy, you’re going to begin to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and God is going to cause the UK to to shine like a bright star… God is going to cause England to be broken away from the root of religion. As the church rises up and begins to roar, the Lion of God is going to come out of your mouth, and its going to destroy this root of religion, and this root of Islamic terrorism that’s trying to come into the country, and the Lord’s speaking to you even right now as you’re watching, that the fire and the power of God is going to come out of you. And the Lord told me, He said to me, ‘Son, it has to be a people that are from the land that are going to begin to speak to the root of religion’ …

Charlie then shares about having had his DNA tested and being 67% from England the Lord told him that’s why he as so much passion for England, and that he needs to stand up and mobilise the people and tell them that that this is a season to not be silent, that it was already foretold that this was a time of contention in the realm of the spirit but the Lord says this too shall pass, and that as we link together in the spirit of unity, God is going to command the blessing upon the UK, He’s commanded a blessing upon the BREXIT, He’s commanded a blessing upon the people of God, and this is going to be a time of rejoicing, a time of the presence of God, it’s going to be a time, where the enemy has come in like a flood, God is going to raise up the standard in the Body of Christ, He’s going to raise up the standard in the UK, and we’re charging forward. I’m telling you, the Lion of the tribe of Judah is going to roar. And the Lion is roaring, and we’re not backing down, we’re not stepping back. We’re not going to faint or run in fear. No we’re going to stand up and decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and the root of religion is going to be severed by the axe of God…And the signs and the wonders are going to begin to be manifested in the nation.

Charlie then goes on to speak more (around 23 minutes) about what we’re going to see in this move of God in the UK. But it all starts with this Matthew chapter 3, verse 10 and 11, that there is a baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire … I’m telling you there is a shifting that’s happening right now, and we’re not drawing back into fear. We’re moving forward in faith and victory and power, and the enemy has no place, he can’t stop what’s coming, there’s a revival, there’s a move of God, there’s an outpouring, there’s the glory that’s coming on the UK, the presence of God is going to move like we’ve never seen before across those Islands, the fire is going to burn, God is going to change the government, God is moving back into the country, the Lord has even saved the Queen, and put the Queen in a place where she is not going to leave this earth until the fullness of this BREXIT thing happens. I’m telling you right now, God has set and sealed her as well. She’s a praying one, she loves Jesus, she loves the Lord, and she’s praying for the country. And we’re standing in unity, and the power of the Holy Spirit is going to cause us to break away from this BEAST that’s out of Brussels, and we’re going to march forward into the things of God, and that root of religion that I saw on the man is going to be broken and severed, and we’re going to run into the freedom and we’re going to run across the land with the fire of God, so Father in the Name of Jesus I pray for my friends in the UK, across England right now, and the enemy is trying to bring discouragement, trying to break their faith and break their persistence and break their prophetic edge. Charlie then comes against that in prayer and releases the fire of the Holy Ghost upon everyone watching the broadcast, and in England for intercession, for the prophetic courts of God, for moving into the council rooms of God and decreeing and declaring the Word of the Lord over the nation …

Charles Shamp #3 of 3: Prophecy on the Brussels Beast and the UK

NOTE: This is the last part of a longer post published on 6th June by UK Prophetic Words which may be ready in its entirety at Urgent Word about England, Terrorism, Brexit, Theresa May, The Lion of Judah is Calling You To ROAR. (The 3 parts appear here in reverse chronological order, separated to enable sequential listing in the Prophecy Library, but can be read straight through as published in that link):

WORD FOR THE UK – delivered at Bungay, England, 11th December 2016

(click for video of Charlie’s carefully worded address)

The Lord showed me that there was a beast that was on Brussels, like a lion that wanted to devour England and the UK; a lion that wanted to devour. And the Lord started showing me that the enemy would love for you to be passive concerning the BREXIT, and allow the passivity of religion to not cause you to speak and to prophesy and to steward the moment that God is giving to you right now, to birth what he wants to see established. Passivity will cause you to die because what it will do is it will choke the prophetic life out of you and the edge out of you, from speaking. God wants to give you a prophetic edge in this season to cut yourself off from the root of religion, where you don’t come to association with it.

I’m talking to the whole country right now. I’m talking to the prophetic people of this land, that you cannot be passive. You have to, you have to, let the POWER of God come upon your prayer life, and begin to DECREE and DECLARE what God is saying, even when it seems like it’s not happening.

Because if you come into association with the old in this season, that Beast is coming. And it’s not just coming for your economy. It’s coming for the structure of the church. It’s coming for the voice of your nation. It’s not just coming for your finances; it’s coming for your voice. It’s coming for your church, it’s coming for your freedom to worship, it’s coming for your freedom.

It’s laying at your gate right now so that it can come in. You see what’s happening in France, you see what’s happening in Germany? I’m telling you right now you’d better break away because it’s coming for you. It’s coming for your gates. It’s coming to produce something that wants to take you. I feel this strong this morning. It wants to open up your gates, not the heavenly ones. It wants to open up your borders.

You HAVE TO, right now in this season begin to speak because it’s not just about the finances. It’s about the structure of your church; it’s about the structure of the church in this country right now. It’s about the silencing of the voice.

And if you’re passive about it then the enemy is going to cause that root of religion to wrap around you. And see we always think of the root of religion as simply different denominations which it is, but you know what else it is? It’s the roots of Islam. The root of religion isn’t just a system that falls within Christianity. It’s also a system and a root that comes out of the religion of Islam, that wants to silence the church.

You see all these wonderful buildings that are sitting around in different cities and everywhere? They don’t have a lot of people them. Well guess what? If you don’t do this in this season I am telling you that those aren’t going to be churches anymore.

It’s a real season of contending right now; there’s contention in the realm of the spirit for the heart and soul of the nation. The beast wants to come, and actually take out the heart. The heart of the lion, right now.

The Lion of Judah – you’re cutting us off from the root of religion. We break the spirit of Islam that stands at the borders and the gates of the nation, that wants to produce an Islamic state and we say no in the name of Jesus. You will not come.

Vision of heaven’s response to prayer to crush satan in Britain

This first of two visions received yesterday makes fascinating introduction to this one in which Nina and I were most blessed to receive last night:

Ruminating over Revd Dr Sharon Stone’s teaching on Saturday on being ‘Kingdom Enforcers’ through a proper understanding and application of the biblical meaning of peace, especially per Romans 16:20, led me to a most interesting, immediate response to prayer.

Last night’s prayer meeting in the chapel at our church centre was opened with a reminder that as we are ‘in Christ’ our heavenly Father has raised us up to sit with Him in heaven (learn about the benefits in Ephesians 6:4-10). So it was from that elevated perspective we gathered, meditated and prayed. When time came to pray for our locality and nation in view of the upcoming general election I was led to use Romans 16:17-20 as not only a prayer but also as a declaration over the British Isles along these lines:

“Heavenly Father would you urge and cause all our brethren and fellow citizens to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in our way that are contrary to the teaching we have learned and received from You. Enable us to keep away from and be protected from such people for they do not serve our Lord Jesus. By smooth flattery and they deceive the minds of naive people. Everyone has heard about our obedience to You but help us to be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil.

“And as the God of Peace, would you now crush satan under our feet.”

Immediately, Nina was given a vision of three lightning bolts from heaven’s throne room. She had the sense of being in that sacred place far above and looking down on the distant earth and ‘seeing’ three dazzling, adjacent beams immediately and sequentially light up. In staying alight they had the appearance of a shard of light focused upon Great Britain down below.  Moreover, she understand the vision means our request is answered, “So be it!”

This is exceptionally encouraging and we praise and thank you Lord for this response and look forward to what You are going to do in and through our nation. Would you forgive us of our sins, cleanse us from all evil and sanctify us for Your service.

In this connection I wish to thank Dave Chapman for his kind permission to publish his paper on Romans 16:20, which you will find at Crush Satan Underfoot.

Interesting to note the literal Greek has, ‘the God of peace shall-be-crushing satan under the feet of-you in the swiftness of the grace of the anointed Lord Jesus’. So Lord we trust the rapidity of that crushing is similar to that of Your response to our prayer declaration.

Telling the Truth about Islam – “We need to talk more about Jesus and Mohammed and less about Christianity and Islam.”- Gavin Ashenden.

Most excellent and thank you Gavin. Am re-blogging for those who haven’t yet picked up on my previous post’s link because this essential article warrants reading in its entirety.

Cranmer - by Gavin

The mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham claimed in public that Salman Abedi, the man who slaughtered children in the Manchester bombing, was not a real Muslim:

“The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.”

But how does Mr Burnham know that? It appeared that it simply was not true. Salman Abedi’s friends, who obviously knew him well, say that the truth was different. They describe him as a devout Muslim who had even memorised the Koran.

At the memorial service held after Khalid Masood had killed bystanders on Westminster Bridge, the Dean of Westminster Abbey Dr John Hall offered this reflection in his sermon:

“What happened a fortnight ago leaves us bewildered. What could possibly motivate a man to hire a car and take it from Birmingham…
