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 …

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.

Gavin Ashenden

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…

On the recognition of the role of religious dogma in terror

As blogged last week, in my humble opinion one of the main considerations for this week’s general election is for political candidates to give proper recognition to the religious dogma behind terrorism. In the second post I called for a nationwide, thorough education program to compare the founders and teachings of Islam and Christianity (note, not churchianity).

Over several years blogging I’ve occasionally dawn attention to that necessity and so I’m pleased that Revd Dr Gavin Ashenden, previously one of Her Majesty’s chaplains, has written at length on this very subject in connection with recent events. (You may recall Cranmer’s own request for the development of a ‘Prophetology’ in order to investigate the true nature of the founder of Islam.)

Last year Dr Gavin was deeply concerned that Glasgow Cathedral allowed a Muslim to recite quranic passages during the Easter Service that undermine Christian teaching on Jesus’ death and resurrection – ie, a grossly blasphemous service! (Read Qur’an in the Eucharist? Provost of Glasgow Cathedral subverts Christian revelation.)

Therefore, you may like to read his latest excellent article, We need to talk more about Jesus and Mohammed and less about Christianity and Islam.

With regards to PM May, I’d point out that as Home Secretary she prevented a couple of ‘truth-tellers’ from visiting Britain (Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller) – after much dispute Gert Wilders was allowed in to address parliamentarians. YET she and her predecessors willingly opened up our nation to muslim murder-mongers and permitted hate-filled rallies by jihadists. So all politicians are personally culpable for permitting the fruit of political correctness to ripen in our day. (At least Donald Trump ‘tweets’ some sense on this Political Claptrap issue!)

LOVE DEFIES sub-human hatred

Within 24 hours of Saturday evening’s attack by muslim murder-mongers near Southwark Cathedral in London’s ancient heart, about 50,000 concertgoers were emotionally singing along with Ariana Grande and many artists to the benefit of those affected by the bomb outrage at her concert in Manchester a fortnight ago tonight.

Although unfamiliar with their style and disliking hedonistic idolatry and hyped-up sexuality accorded to popular celebrities, we were extremely impressed with the depth of sincerity, warmth and love of Ariana and fellow musicians at the Old Trafford cricket ground to. So we watched most of her One Love Manchester event and noticed that the emphasis in some songs of godly values.

At 2hr10min o0f the video Justin Bieber gave one of several of his declarations on love:

“God is good in the midst of evil. God is good in the midst of darkness. He loves you!”

Lifestyle/Women: I was wrong to dismiss Ariana as a bad role model for my daughter .

On the prime political purposes of this historically decisive time – 2

It’s most heartening – but also disappointing – to learn that a proposed course of action which I’ve oft contemplated as being best for countering Islamic terrorism has actually been seriously considered at top levels of government!

After Manchester, most people in their right minds will have said “Enough is enough” and want a decisive end to this pre-Medieval barbarity being inflicted upon the modern world.

An informative analysis by a visiting professor of war studies at King’s College London, Dr Andrew Roberts, and a well-informed reader’s letter in the Telegraph, on the necessity of banning the Muslim Brotherhood (per the unpublished official review into its activities) are followed by this real ‘eye-opener’ in Thursday’s edition:

Countering Extremism

‘SIR – In July 2013, following the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby, former Labour Cabinet minister Hazel Blears and I, as members of Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee, wrote a paper for David Cameron’s taskforce on tackling radicalisation and extremism and gave evidence to it in person.

‘Our message was that we are well-served by our security and intelligence agencies in identifying and disrupting home-grown terrorists. However, we lack comparable capacity to neutralise the ideology which infects them in the first place.

‘We argued that, to prevent people from being radicalised and drawn into extremist activity, we should follow the precedents of the wartime efforts to expose Nazism and the Cold War campaigns to counter Communism. The extremist ideology of political Islam is a similarly totalitarian creed, requiring an organised effort to undermine its appeal and to strengthen the long-term resilience of the communities most vulnerable to it.

‘This work must be owned by the whole of government, on a cross-departmental basis, working closely with local government and engaging with civic and faith organisations on the ground. It requires the creation of a specialist counter-propaganda agency to develop a counter-narrative and to support communities in their efforts to challenge extremists. This agency should operate under the supervision of a permanent ministerial committee on which the Home Office, the Foreign Office, the Department of Communities and Local Government, the Ministry of Defence and the Department for International Development should all be represented.

‘Nothing which has happened in the succeeding four years has lessened the need for this overall strategy. Action against deluded individuals, however necessary, can never be a substitute for it.’

Dr Julian Lewis
Cadnam, Hants

Conclusion

In other words, a thorough, population-wide, education programme needs to begin but which will only be effective when the abusive term ‘Islamophobia’ is legislatively banned. Islam should be comprehensively compared with Christ’s life and teachings and the muddled and heretical notions of so-called ‘Chrislam’ renounced.

‘Archbishop Cranmer’ has long advocated, as in England has defeated religious fanatics in the past, and will do so again (emphasis added):

‘Let us not just teach our schoolchildren to wash their hands before they touch the Qur’an or to be sure to place it back on the highest shelf in a place of honour, but how to analyse, critique and understand it, and then freely to assent to or repudiate every word of it. This is a basic freedom: Christians have had it for centuries, and those who seek to dwell in a liberal democracy must respect the source of its community morality. It has been said before, but it merits repeating:

‘We need urgently to develop a ‘Prophetology’ – after the fashion of our centuries of Christology – in order to investigate the true nature and person of Mohammed as recorded in the Qur’an and Hadith(s). Then we might discover, or come nearer to understanding – as we have with Jesus – who Mohammed was; to whom he was born and how he was raised; what manner of prophet he claimed to be; what his relationship was with Allah; and what he might mean not only to the diverse ‘Islamic world’ but to non-Muslims the world over.’

Battle of Good vs. Evil: what does Jesus Christ teach?

The ministry team was hit by the emotional enormity of the previous night’s sub-human, demon-possessed barbarism. So, it was far from easy to focus and compose ourselves before the morning’s service for healing but the chaplain wisely reminded us of our Lord’s words. Then we sang to the King of Kings about His ruling over everything, and His Spirit joined with ours…So I’ve been brooding over those verses and the ongoing battle.:

In His famous in-depth teaching on blessings (‘The Beatitudes’) delivered to a multitude gathered on a mountainside, the one anointed in power by God’s Holy Spirit explained His purpose of fulfilling the ancient written instructions and prophecies that came from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Jesus’ mission was not to supplant or destroy them but to fulfill them. In saying so, He urged everyone to live so righteously that it exceeds that of the religious teachers, and thereby be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Moreover, in unwrapping authoritatively the purpose of the Torah’s commands about retaliation in order to avoid personal revenge, Jesus revealed it’s His Father’s overriding purpose to love everyone in practical ways.  His listeners had been taught to love their neighbour but to hate their enemy…

“But I say to you: love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain upon the just and the unjust.

“For if you love those who love you, what  reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors (Gentiles) do the same? And if you greet your friends only, what do you do more than others?…

“Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:44-48 NKJV)

There’s also Proverbs 25:21-2 promise, ‘If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink: for in doing so you will heap coals of fire upon his head and the Lord will reward you’ (Amplfd Bible). This doesn’t mean to harm them but to bless after the high priestly manner of igniting an offering to the Lord. So it implies the person’s mind may then be cleansed and changed, even unto repentance.

With all that in mind, I recalled having blessed an individual who’d taken exception to this blog’s claims about listening to the Lord, gifts of the Holy Spirit, the divinity of Jesus and my opinion of the Muslim Book. (Eventually, he said he’d been a ‘Christian’, albeit anti-Trinitarian for years, and now Muslim.)  So I simply wished him a similar encounter with Jesus as I’d had.  Therefore, you may wish to join me in blessing all those opposed to Christians and to the holy scriptures, especially humanists and Muslim fundamentalists, with a few blessings/prayers.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Son of God, who came in the flesh, may each person who has false beliefs and doesn’t yet know the Living God be saved by Your grace and mercy, as well as being blessed to:

  • have a direct, personal encounter with You,
  • be aware of Your holiness and person-hood,
  • be convicted of and truly repent of their sins,
  • renounce satan and all its teachings and ways,
  • become born-again of the Holy Spirit and a disciple of Jesus,
  • come into a relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • etc, etc.

Amen…

Trump boldly urges Muslim leaders to “drive out the terrorists and extremists” from their nations and mosques.

NOTE Trump’s accurate description of Islamic terror as “battle between Good and Evil” (read prepared speech.)  All a mighty contrast to Obama’s deep rift with Riyadh in 2011 for betraying Egypt’s president Mubarak as a consequence of having invited the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood to his 2009 Cairo speech + his back-channel dealings with Iran, as I reported just over 8 years ago in Today’s Importance in History (18 May 2009)!

Saudi-TrumpSpeech2

(Washington, D.C.) — Wow. Readers of this blog know I have never been shy about expressing my concerns about President Trump when necessary. But the President deserves a great deal of credit for the speech he delivered yesterday in Saudi Arabia to the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority countries.

The address was well-crafted and respectful, even nuanced, at times. But it was also clear, honest, and bold. Indeed, it was unlike any speech any American President has ever delivered face to face to the leaders of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Cooperation Council, Egypt, Jordan and other Muslim countries. Below, you’ll find key excerpts, a link to the full transcript and a link to the video of the full 34 minute speech. I would encourage you to both watch and read the address in full.

A few first impressions:

  1. The President rightly thanked America’s Sunni Muslim allies for their friendship and hospitality, he honored their historic achievements, rich culture and heritage, and he reached…

Battle of Good vs. Evil – human love responds to demonic hatred

Politico-religious blogger Adrian Hilton records Mancunians’ praiseworthy reactions to the atrocity, in which demonic ‘losers’ now target children, in Archbishop Cranmer blog (click title for original article posted yesterday).Very well said sir:

THERE WAS A BLAST AND THEN A FIRE; THEN JESUS CAME TO MANCHESTER

Bodies and blood.

Carnage, terror and tears.

“There are children among the deceased,” confirmed Greater Manchester Police. “This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face,” said Chief Constable Ian Hopkins.

Nuts and bolts and nails.

Smoke and burning.

“This is horrific, this is criminal,” said Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain. “May the perpetrators face the full weight of justice both in this life and the next.”

Emergency services praised.

Cobra committee convened.

“Please hold the people of #Manchester in your prayers,” tweeted David Walker, Bishop of Manchester. “We’ve faced terror attacks before and this latest won’t defeat us.”

Fear and division.

Thoughts, prayers and condemnation.

Evil descended upon Manchester Arena last night: his target was teenagers at a pop concert. He wore a vest packed with explosives and metal bits. There was a blast and then a flash of fire. And then everyone just started running, screaming and crying.

And then Jesus came.

“We are visiting for a health conference from morecambe bay trust tomorrow 3 Theatre ODPs available if needed,” tweeted Kirsty Withers, an NHS theatre clinical manager.

“If anyone needs shelter we are right on the outskirts of central Manchester in Salford, anything I can do to help DM me!!” tweeted science student Karolina Staniecka.

“Anyone in Manchester who needs to wait for their parents or needs somewhere stay or to make phone calls, etc, just DM me. We have tea!” offered the BBC’s Simon Clancy.

“Anyone needing somewhere to stay can come to our Manchester headquarters in the city centre,” tweeted Stephen Bartlett.

“The Holiday Inn nearest to Manchester Arena have taken dozens of kids who have been separated from their parents tonight,” said Samuel Carvalho.

“Taxi drivers in #Manchester offering free journeys to those stranded after the events in #ManchesterArena,” tweeted Bethan Bonsall.

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me,‘ said Jesus.

Out of the depths comes light; out of oppression, a new possibility and hope. You can blame and curse the Islamist in bitterness and hate, or you can sing a song of joy because there’s a better story to tell. In times of distress and suffering, there are little signs of the presence of the Lord: manna falls from desert bushes; quail drifts in with the wind; water is to be found in the most unexpected places. And the water of life is the presence of love and compassion, of guidance and affection, of ordinary people doing extraordinary little things to help their fellow man, for no other reason than that they want to and can.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion‘ (Ps 137:1).

Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?‘ (Ps 94:3).

Is the Lord among us or not?‘ (Ex 17:7).

The power of death brings unbearable grief, but God restores the soul. To live is to praise. There is kindness in darkness, and mercy in Manchester. It is the intuitive pulse of faithfulness, covenant, unity and peace. May God bless those who mourn, and wipe every tear from their eyes.

Important update on Israel, Iran and the United States

Further to my previous posts (here and here) on developments in Syria regarding British, American and Jordanian special forces and Iranian interests there, we now see how that connects into the diplomatic details of President Trump’s visit to Israel.

Upon his visiting President Rivlin, Debkafile reports Israel’s president as saying “We can’t wake up with Iran and Hizballah on our border. We want Iran out of Syria, out of Lebanon and away from our borders, and we must move forward to this goal together with America.”

‘Donald Trump once again rebutted media evaluations of his trip to Israel as a demonstration of friendship without real content. Very shortly after his arrival, he stood up at the president’s residence in Jerusalem and delivered a string of important policy statements and new revelations:

  1. Iran would not be permitted to possess a nuclear weapon.
  2. Iran must dismantle the Shiite terrorists and militias.
  3. Iran must remove all those same foreign militias from Syria.
  4. Iran must evacuate Hizballah forces from Syria and disarm this Lebanese Shiite organization.
  5. The Saudi King Salman had told him first hand of his fervent wish for an Israeli-Palestinian peace. Trump heard the same sentiment from other Arab and Muslim rulers.

‘Our military sources add: The issue of the pro-Iranian militias ties in directly with the battlefield confrontation building up in the past fortnight along Syria’s borders with Jordan and Iraq….’  (Read full report Trump: Iran must disarm militias; never gain nuke.)

Readers of long-standing will be familiar with my concern since the mid-1980’s that Iran has never relinquished its ambition to attack, or mastermind an attack upon, Jerusalem. In fact, its often held military drills to practise achieving that goal. (See Welcome and various posts under Iran tag.)

This month’s critical convergence of historical cycles

AN EXTRA-SPECIAL THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED UP IN EARLY 2012!

A month after launching this blog in late November 2011, I introduced my first readers to accredited Christian journalist and ‘Watcher in The White House’, William Koenig in Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/ Financial Cycles. This referred to his four-year investigation of the work and predictions of the financial markets technical analyst Eric Hadik. (Read About William Koenig and Who is Eric Hadik?)

Erik Hadik built his renowned expertise upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories based upon his discoveries of mathematical-geometrical principles in the Bible!  Erik’s material is published at Inside Track Trading. (My very brief introduction to cycles may be read in the blog’s God-incidences hub.)

After closely following Hadik’s application of those theories to natural and social events, Bill published his findings simultaneously with the launch of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger and attested to having “found (Hadik’s) calculations extremely accurate”. So, it certainly seems the Lord wants His people to learn about these matters.

Before proceeding and if having time and inclination, you may want to get ‘up to speed’ by scanning through my brief blogs on Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year. I’d like to  draw your attention to Erik’s evidence for his thesis on Historic Aprils For USA & Israel. This has led him to dub today, April 19th and the days thereabouts, as being a “Date of Infamy for America”!

Digging into those links will give good grounding for Bill’s comprehensive compilation from four of his 2016-17 reports in.:

The Converging of Major Historical Patterns in 2017-18 and Jewish New Year 5777

(Read document by clicking/tapping title.) This paper focuses upon the significance of 2017/5777 as regards the land of Israel, biblically and geographically. In conjunction with data from Erik Hadik, Bill covers these excitingly informative topics in detail:

  • Donald Trump born exactly 700 days before Isarel became a nation
  • On first day in office POTUS Trump was 70 years, 7 months, 7 days old
  • America’s 45th President, Isaiah 45 and 44:28; Tim La Haye study notes
  • Jubilee Year and liberation of Jerusalem 1917 & 1967 (50 years) in depth
  • Five potential major developments in US-Israel relations in 2017
  • Orthodox Jews believe Messiah’s appearance possible in 2017
  • Biblical origins of 70-nation anti-Israel Paris conference
  • Several scheduled astronomical events are Biblically relevant
  • Convergence of 25, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 100 year cycles re Jerusalem
  • Culmination of four major 70-year cycles from 1948 to 2018
  • 7-year cycle from the beginning of the ‘Arab Spring’
  • Computers and technology 70-year cycle.

Last weekend’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House provides a detailed list of critical events in April 2016, plus timeline of them within this current April – of which we’re all too well aware!

Bill asks, “Were the last two weeks of April 2016 the most prophetically significant period in history?”

Typically, he provides a  detailed analysis of their events and regards this present time as being, “Another prophetically pivotal month: many major headlines and news of final-day nations that will play out in the rest of April” (ie. 2017).

So in this light, it’s very poignant that yesterday Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to hold a snap general election on 8th June, thereby thwarting ‘Remoaners’ plans and thus strongly forging ahead with Brexit!

And today she got the backing of MPs by an overwhelming 522 to 13 votesApril 19th, an exceptionally historic day for the UK!

MOST EXCELLENT!!

Egyptian & Jordanian leaders head to Washington to meet with Trump. Will discuss Iran, ISIS & Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

What a refreshing change after ex-Potus Obama threw Egypt’s Mubarak ‘under the bus’ after being duped by the Muslim Brotherhood. (For latest info see: The MB, Fountain of Islamist Violence.)

Abdullah-elSisi-5(Washington, D.C.) — President Trump’s efforts to rebuild deeply strained relations with America’s Sunni Arab Muslim allies continue full speed ahead this week.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has just departed Cairo and is currently headed for Washington. On Monday, April 3rd, he will meet with  Trump.

  • This will be the Egyptian leader’s first time to the White House.
  • President Obama never invited him but rather treated him nearly as persona non grata during his administration, denouncing el-Sisi for removing the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist regime from power in the summer of 2013 and suspending aid and military sales to Egypt for a time.
  • This will actually be el-Sisi’s second meeting with Mr. Trump.
  • Their first meeting was on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly meetings in New York last September during the presidential campaign. At the time, el-Sisi also met with Hillary Clinton.
  • The Egyptian president was also the first leader to call Mr. Trump the…
