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

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):

Continued from #2:

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…

Fulfilled Prophecies #18 – fascinating flow of news re. dreams of Big Ben

Houses of Parliament: courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

To recap, my cyber-friend in Tucson, Tony Puccio, recently published two dreams about Big Ben clock tower six months after having an alarming one of its collapse, as here. On 12th February he wrote about its sequel, which I re-blogged at Big Ben and Midnight.:

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

Then last Saturday morning Tony writes as follows:

“…The morning of 03/11/2017 I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging.  Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.  

“It’s my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening hence the dreams about Big Ben. “

I re-blogged that on Monday with preface, ‘it may prophesy the result of voting on the Article 50 ‘Brexit Bill’ in Parliament today, threatened as it is by those not aligned with God’s will’, and we shared our thoughts on Tony’s comments thread.

BREXIT BILL & SCOTLAND’S PROBLEM

My remark anticipated the ‘spanner’ Scotland’s obdurate First Minister and leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) Nicola Sturgeon could throw into the ‘works’ demanding that nation holds a second independence referendum before Brexit, in view of her desire for Scotland to separate from the United Kingdom and remain within the European Union.

As most readers will be familiar with this thorn in our side I won’t cover this in any depth, but here are this week’s front-page headlines with ‘strap-line’ from The Daily Telegraph :

  • Monday 13th: Sturgeon’s last-ditch bid to ruin Brexit – Scottish leader ready to derail Article 50 vote with threat of new referendum date (online here)
  • Tuesday 14th: The new battle for Britain – PM rules out new independence vote before Brexit and delays Article 50 (online here)
  • Wednesday 15th: Sturgeon abandons bid to stay in the EU – Campaign for referendum wobbles as poll shows most Scots are now Eurosceptics (online here).

I offer no opinion other than, “May Your kingdom come, Father, and Your will be done on our patch of earth as it is in heaven” – amen.

Note: Fulfilled Prophecy #8 part 2: – Warning of Spiritual Fierce Battle

Journalist notices rushing, mighty wind in politics; confirming prophecies

Exceptionally astonished over morning coffee!

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

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

tim-stanley-op-ed

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Patsy Southway: March winds, the UK has an anchor

Thank you UK Prophetic Words for informing me of this from Patsy Southway, published on Monday 27th February on Pick Ministries.:

THE UNITED KINGDOM HAS AN ANCHOR

Patsy SouthwayOn the weekend of the 10th February I traveled to Liverpool to meet up with some new friends that had been in touch with me concerning a prophetic word given to me, that The Elijah List had kindly posted, and our concern for the Prophetic Voice in the UK.

While I was in Liverpool God gave me a vision of a Map of the UK with a LARGE ANCHOR placed over the nation. From top to bottom from East to West. At the same time, I had such a strong sense of feeling secure, safe, and established.

MARCH WINDS

Upon asking for some revelation on this, He said that as the March winds blow, we will see an EVER INCREASING manifestation of the FULFILLMENT of what has been promised and prophesied for this nation.

I could see scaffolding, NEW structures, both spiritually and in the natural realm, as building work for His Kingdom was being established.

And as the MARCH WINDS blow, just like the cobwebs that are blown away by strong winds, I saw the ‘blowing away’ of man-made works. Exposures of wrong doing, false teaching, false prophecies and the like, were being exposed. I could see that these deceptions had kept many sons and daughters ‘under a cloud’ of hopelessness, but these very clouds were being blown away and freedom came as they were now being released!

I also saw a continuation of the ‘ALL CHANGE’ (click to read December 2016 word) that was spoken to me, as fresh vision, friendships, and alignments were being made.

THE ANCHOR

An Anchor is a symbol of HOPE. Anchors are mentioned in the book of Acts chapter 27 – in Hebrews 6:19/20 which speaks about the HOPE set before us:
‘This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’

I read that the ANCHOR became a key Christian symbol during the period of Roman persecution. The first century Christians also used an ANCHOR as a symbol of the HOPE that the Bible speaks about.

So, further revelation I received from this vision given to me of an ANCHOR being placed upon the United Kingdom and the things that I saw whilst in the vision, is this:

The United Kingdom will once more be a Christian nation.

Our hearts will be ANCHORED in CHRIST alone. No man, no denomination, no institution, can take that place in our hearts. We will be ‘all out’ for our God and our King! Our very lives will testify of this HOPE that we have in Him. This love of God that passes all understanding; that NONE should perish but come to the knowledge of God, will be like a WILDFIRE in our hearts. (I know some are experiencing this already!) And as this transition takes place, our roots will go deeper and deeper into Him, we will have an ever increasing HUNGER for the WORD of God and the PRESENCE of God. The United Kingdom will embrace His Kingdom!

As I’ve been looking at Anchors, the lower part, reminded me of His arms, His love, stretched around the nation. The stem of the anchor, reminded me of the Cross, where he suffered and died for the whole world. And I was reminded of an old hymn, ‘Will your anchor hold through the storms of life?’

I currently seem to be attracted to anchors!!

Lastly, as I was thinking on these things, and looking at a map of the UK, I saw that particular cities/places were like magnets for His presence. I believe, because of the years of prayers and INTERCESSIONS, the crying out to God from those that have gone before us, (both for their nation and the NATIONS) that these particular places have become attractive to Him!

Please, be encouraged, speak LIFE over the nations, as we begin to see things come into place and enjoy the privilege of seeing a RIPPLING EFFECT of this ANCHOR of GOD upon ENGLAND – IRELAND – SCOTLAND & WALES bearing fruit throughout the nations.

GLORY TO GOD!

Bridge o’ Pond goes global for President-elect Trump and ‘snakes’!

This morning’s collection of unread weekend emails confirms what we heard yesterday at Church of His Presence in Alabama via live streaming.

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the AtlanticAs the sun sets this afternoon let me ever so briefly join prophetical dots by taking not just my ‘Bridge over the Pond’ but flying over to Australia too – or taking a bridge over the Pacific!

John Kilpatrick’s message entitled ‘Hold Fast’ supported my thoughts on what I’d read the previous day of our PM May telling Parliament Christians should be able to share our faith in the workplace and Archbishop of Canterbury will dedicate 2017 as a year for the defence freedom of Judeo-Christian values.

So I was going to blog first thing about The Turning Tide, to quote Dr Clifford Hill…but not just yet…

JEHU and TRUMP vs JEZEBEL

JohnK 214_logoAll day long through Saturday the Lord had been prompting John in his spirit to tell His people to “Hold fast”. Although not hearing or knowing the reason for that command, on Sunday morning he taught on it from the scriptures and related this to our personal situations and destiny.  He also gave details of how he was called to preach and what happened. (Message starts at 49 mins of this video.)

John referred to OT prophet Elijah’s fear of queen Jezebel and her witchcraft stopping him from completing his God-given destiny – even after God’s holy fire fell at Mount Carmel and he slew the prophets of Baal. So the Lord had Elijah anoint Elisha, who anointed Jehu (a bold, assertive even reckless character) as king of Israel to destroy Jezebel and king Ahab’s line (2 Kings 9-10).

My notes have John suddenly saying (beginning at 1:39:30 mark),

“I believe this moment is why the Lord sent me here today – because Jezebel used witchcraft on the man of God – and don’t think that God is going to let the President-elect escape the spirit of Jezebel…(speaks about bold Elijah being knocked off his seat of authority)

“I sense in my spirit that we really need to pray right now…because, you know as well as I do the devil’s not going to let all this (post-Election) exhilaration and all this hope and all this well-laid plans (Trump’s) alone. He’s going to try to tamper with it every way he possibly can. And that spirit of Jezebel that was in so many of those people in Washington – even his opponent that he ran against – you can’t tell me that spirit’s going to tuck away somewhere and go to bed and sleep for the next 8 years!

“It’s going to fight against America and against his leadership and we need to pray…”

The church then stood for several minutes praising God and interceding for President-elect Trump’s protection and against that spirit, and that Trump will become a Jehu and trample upon it! 

Now read what Lana Vawser published this morning (Monday) in Queensland.:

LanaVawser“Recently I felt the Lord saying “I have been using Trump to SHAKE, and now I will use him to TREAD UPON SNAKES!!!

“A vision played out before me where I saw the Lord crowning Trump with wisdom and discernment, with an incredible ability in increased ways to see the “snakes” of deception, the snakes of “evil” and the snakes of “lies” and “traps” the enemy has set up to attempt to hinder the move of God in the nation. This incredibly strong sense surrounded me of the eyes of God’s people must be upon JESUS. I then heard the words “Do not put your eyes on Trump as the Saviour of the nation, but listen to the voice behind him and the One who is using him. Look to Me!!!!!”

“I watched as the Lord began working even deeper in Trump’s heart to bring about a greater awakening to his need of Jesus and the necessity for wisdom and discernment from on high. I had a vision where I saw…” (continue reading here).

Then, early this afternoon (Monday) Veronika West in Ireland writes,

“IN THIS SEASON, I PROPHESY YOU SHALL TREAD UPON SNAKES AND SCORPIONS AND NOT BE HARMED”!

Verinoka West Fbk“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”

“And He said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightening fall from heaven. Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

“Not withstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

“We hear clearly in the words of Jesus that evil spirits cannot harm us, as long as we exercise the Power and Authority that has been given to us. ONLY in the name of Jesus Christ WILL WE OVER COME IN VICTORY. Evil forces and the presence of death cannot resist or stand against the Authority of Jesus. GLORY TO GOD!

“I hear the Father say to us today, “Behold, I have given you all Authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, I have given you Authority over all the powers of the enemy, Nothing shall by any means harm you. Behold, now Pay attention My Beloved, First and foremost, it is I who gives you the Authority for I am the Great Creator come to be Saviour to ALL of mankind. My Glory and Power is far above the powers and principalities and rulers of darkness, I have pre-eminence in all things, and All things have been created by My hand and for My pleasure”!….” (continue reading as Veronika prophesies and makes several declarations).

Hit by Holy Spirit during Trooping the Colour

My News Flash post made an audacious claim that a massive shift is happening, or is about to happen, in Britain. We were utterly and physically stunned by this turn of events because it was happening in our lounge! Whilst preparing a small celebration luncheon for friends my wife received an awesome message from the Living Lord God.:

This is MY country!”

How do we know? For the simple reason such sudden surprising physical effects don’t and cannot come from anywhere else!

Upon hearing a quietly muffled sound, like that of wincing in pain, from Nina when she’s in the lounge and I’m in the kitchen, I turn to check she’s alright only to see her standing by the doorway into the lounge. She’s leaning at a peculiar angle, right hand against our cat’s 30 inches-high stand and hugging a large electric fan under her left shoulder (that she was about to take upstairs) – BUT with eyes almost POPPING out of her head.

All she’s done is to catch sight of what was on the TV – the Coldstream Guards marching down the Mall from Buckingham Palace towards the Horse Guards Parade for the annual ceremony performed in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  What was being broadcast live eight minutes into the broadcast opened her up to a blast of Holy Spirit’s power!

It made her tremble rapidly and continually from the neck downwards all over her body, as with powerful electric shocks. This continued for over half an hour and sparked later when she recounted what she saw!  Nothing as pronounced and prolonged has happened since the times we were at Toronto Airport church.

Shortly into this event Nina ‘knows’ the Lord is saying something to her and she weeps as the words scroll as moving, written text in front of her eyes: This is My country!  (The emphasis shown in first version above conveys the distinct emphasis Nina sensed.)

Furthermore, it is conveyed with an unmistakable stamp of divine authority!

Absolutely awesome and amazing to learn direct from God about His heart for our land and people.

If you’re in UK, you can watch this on BBC iPlayer Trooping the Colour 2016

March post-Trooping the Colour 2016

Thank you Lord for such a profound privilege, and to be able to convey this to the public.

Furthermore, Nina noted that somehow all her preparations had been completed unusually early. In fact, in time to allow for undergoing this Holy Spirit encounter without causing any delay to our schedule for the midday arrival of friends. Thank you Lord.

[For more about that day’s ‘God-incidental’ matters see Holy Spirit stirrings #1 & #2.]

Also, I’m reminded of a notion the Lord gave me in 2011 about the symbolism of a castle and how it may connect heaven and earth. It suggested that Windsor Castle could act as a socket in which the Lord could insert a handle as though winding up this nation’s engine through our monarchy – I’m not a monarchist! (See A Special Town in the Thames Valley?) Perhaps current events may support that notion and indicate a deeper significance?

Changing of the Guard (prophetic word)

Thank you also to Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS, for commenting that the ‘news flash’ reminds him of his reaction to the word Neville Johnson had last year about ‘Changing of the Guard’.

Thanks to Samuel Company Mark 2, here’s an extract from Neville’s letter (emphases added).:

Neville_Johnson-311x350‘In an encounter with the Lord on 25th of November 2015, I heard these words which were spoken very authoritatively in a way that demanded my complete attention. The end of this year will usher in the changing of the guard. This brought back memories of when I was a child watching the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace in London England.’

Neville explains the ceremonial procedure and then refers to a powerful dream the Lord gave him in 1986 of direct relevance to the encounter. In his letter quoted above, he goes on,

‘This November when the Lord spoke to me He strongly emphasised that the end of this year we would again see a changing of the guard and that this would have profound consequences. Batons and mantles which have been passed on will be powerfully activated in a way that would be much greater in power and authority than the former holders of these batons had experienced.  The Lord also spoke to me concerning a removal of many in ministry who were not teaching holiness and sanctification and were using their ministry for personal gain. However many of the old guard who had been faithful to the Lord would be taken home.

‘We must understand the times and seasons because major change is about to occur in the church, and a new emphasis of making the bride ready unfolds. God will no longer tolerate Luke-Warmness and the chaff will be removed and separated from the wheat. This is necessary in order for the last great harvest can be gathered in.  This changing of the guard will have great consequences both good and bad. We are running out of time as it were and God will no more tolerate sin, pride, and evil motives, He is about to cleanse His church.’

Amen – Lord, let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
