Freed at last from satan – my chains fall off!

To celebrate our wedding anniversary today and my birthday yesterday

Months after that night of destiny in 1989 I trashed my occult and New Age books, yet I kept some items that were very significant to membership in those occult brotherhoods. But very soon, troubles brewed up within my relationships. And they got worse, and worse. So I asked for prayer help and gathered all those remaining things, such as ritualistic items and pictures. Right at the peak of my trouble I heard an almost audible voice instruct me,

Burn what you’ve collected – NOW!”

Never, ever, would I have believed what was to happen next:

Out in the backyard I piled those membership items onto an area of gravel and, putting a match to them, I sincerely repented.

Fanning the flames, I apologised deeply to God for all my past rebellious, sinful activity and specifically renounced satan and all evil connected with those occult associations.

As I asked God to forgive me, heavy invisible shackles suddenly dropped off my wrists!

I felt, and was, free, completely free – exactly as is jubilantly sung in Charles Wesley’s great hymn And Can It Be? 

WOW, from despair to jubilation within a split second!  What utter freedom!  Praise Him!

That hymn’s lyrics present the simple yet sublime salvation found in our Father’s good news about Jesus.

How aptly the third verse describes my personal situation and what had just happened – my wonderful liberation from invisible bondage to satan.:

1. And can it be that I should gain
An int’rest in the Saviour’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God shouldst die for me?

2. He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace!
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race!

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me.

3. Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night.
Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray:
I woke the dungeon flamed with light!

My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

4. No condemnation now I dread:
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,

Bold I approach th’ eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

If you’re unfamiliar with Charles Wesley brother of the renowned evangelical founder of Methodism, John Wesley, read here about his equally famous influence as author of many well-known hymns; eg. Love Divine, all love’s excelling, Hark the herald angels…

Listen to one of the greatest hymns as broadcast some years ago in Songs of Praise,   thanks to Fabio Ramsay.:

I will rejoice in the Lord, I will exult in the victorious God of my salvation! (Hab 3:1)

To read my testimony in full go to Jesus Freed Me!  There, you’ll find an overview of my background, two life-changing divine appointments and how the Lord began to instruct me…all to HIS glory. May you be mightily blessed upon following the links therein…

I remain, your brother in Christ

Bible’s Author shows me ex-New Agers’ testimonies

The Father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in Whom we have our redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. [St Paul’s letter to the Colossians 1:13-14, Amplified Bible.]

[Continuing my personal testimony]

As well as checking out Christians’ claims of hearing God direct and getting astounding personal evidence for that, I wanted to know lots more not only about Him, but also and especially to follow-up on the personally revelatory scriptures about false teachers.

In my great wariness of religious folk I’d assumed none would be able to comprehend my story because they’d be ignorant about those things. Doubtless, none would have been through my kind of bad, meditative ‘trips’ – or so I thought! Continue reading

A humbling confirmation of my encounter with Jesus

Please carefully note this morning’s confirming comment from the antipodean ‘ends of the earth’ (New Zealand) to my Triple Validation of Jesus’ Night-time Visitation.:

Richard,
I have only ever shared this with one person and though she was a religious person was not particularly interested.
I have actually seen the living Jesus with my own eyes.
I won’t go into detail but I’m telling you this because of the picture of Jesus in the clouds with face obscured that you have shared.
When Jesus comes back he will look modern and young. He was around 33 when he died.
People will be amazed by this attractive Jesus. There will be gnashing of teeth but they have missed their opportunity. Jesus is concerned about this. He does not want any to perish.
I hope anyone reading this will take it to heart.
Time is running out.
Praise the I AM.
Alex Alexander

The Bible’s Author opens it to answer my ‘newbie’ questions

Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus,For I always pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him by having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), and [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when raising Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places], far above all rule and authority and power dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come…. [Eph1:17-21, Amplified Bible – v17 is today’s Keep Praying & Bless decree: ‘I Am the Giver of All Revelation’. We decree that the blindness be removed from the eyes of all the peoples of this land so they may see Jesus Christ is Lord.]

Awesome as my ‘rescue’ was, the dream-visitation of 31 years ago yesterday did not make me want to rush off to church. Its effect and the ramifications upon my philosophy of life needed careful consideration. For example, I needed to check out widespread claims of the Bible having been compiled and modified by Church councils in the 4th Century after Christ, as well as learn about its history from authoritative sources. [Prof F.F. Bruce’s The Books and The Parchments (1991) was very helpful, especially about the ‘Muratorian Fragment’. Drawn up in late 2nd Century in the church at Rome, it lists practically all the canonical New Testament literature.]

So not only did I need to assess those personal implications, but also as possibly a new believer in Jesus Christ I wanted to find well-informed believers who take Him seriously. I soon did so, but then needed to put their claims of hearing direct from God to the test. After all, they believe we have a relationship with Him and so we have but to ask… Continue reading

Triple validation of Jesus’ night-time visitation

‘…but mercy (full of glad confidence) exults victoriously over judgement’ – James 2:13 (The Amplified Bible)

A little time was needed to gain a full understanding of that awesome visitation over 13-14th September ’89, when I got confronted by the absolute holiness of the Lord Jesus Christ in contrast to my personal sinful nature. No wonder I was intensely convicted and suddenly knew personal judgement definitely IS TRUE! So I fully expected to take my last breath there and then as an invisible trapdoor would open up in the floor and drop me down into Hell.

It was a few years until I heard that “mercy triumphs over judgement” – yes indeed it does and thank you for being so gracious to me my Lord. May it be similarly so for the multitudes who don’t yet know You.

That life-changing encounter used two personally intimate aspects of my life, unknown to any living soul, to grab my attention and thereby validate the experience as being real, not imaginaryEven more amazingly, both validations are directly related to the 1st and 2nd Advents!  Thus, they could not but enhance my interest in End-Times that had begun only a few years earlier when reading The Invisible Hand (as described herein).

Jesus ‘arrested’ me to stop me dropping into Hell…

Upon awaking 31 years ago tomorrow (14th September 1989), I was so happy to find I’m still alive after having had a close call with death in the night!

The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But that night had been spent at my childhood home at 212 E___ Rd, Stockport, Cheshire, to undergo a life-changing event.

In a most unusual dream I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that even three decades later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what had happened (copied from original, explanatory comments in italics).: Continue reading

Anniversary of close call when I nearly fell into Hell after shutting the door on God’s Good News

‘Twas a fateful day written in my destiny – perhaps in heaven too?

On the evening of 13th September 1989 a young man, barely an adult, came to visit and chat – but I ended up discretely disagreeing!

I didn’t know a false gospel had lured me to the Devil’s Door around the time Peter was born 21 years earlier. I was to discover it wasn’t a normal door but a trapdoor about to be sprung – with me standing on it!!

In abject terror I groaned “My number’s up!” because I’d unexpectedly and suddenly come to the end of my life!

What’s more, I was absolutely terrified to realise hell’s now below me and I’d be heading down there – even though I didn’t believe in it! I was wrong – so badly, badly wrong!!

Being anti-Christian had been a serious mistake – but it was now far too late! Yet I’m now able to tell this true story purely for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How did I get there you may ask. And, how on earth did I get out of it? Continue reading

Astonishing! Previous post gets immediate double-confirmation!! (Global Prophecy Signal #50)

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

In republishing Ben Kay’s email in the previous post I couldn’t but conclude, “The Lord is getting our attention – has he got yours?” I wasn’t being flippant, simply stressing it’s well to give our serious consideration to what Ben had not planned on writing!

But I wasn’t prepared for the Lord immediately getting on my caseand doubly so!

It was about a geographical-cum-spiritual aspect I’d sensed – together with a totally unexpected reference by a reader to a hidden, textual attribute behind my reacting to and promoting Ben’s encouragement.

11.8.1999 SOLAR ECLIPSE, THE ‘MAYFLOWER’ and BRIDGE o’r POND

Ben states the total solar eclipse of 11th August 1999, “started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2,000 km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall…”

However, in watching the animated video of its passage and carefully noting the origin and path of the small dot representing the totality of eclipse, I was reminded of a concept I’d started blogging about 44 (11 x 4) months ago – Bridge over ‘The Pond’ – ie. an imaginary, supra-natural bridge linking Britain with North America used by Holy Spirit for delivering the same, or similar, teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the North Atlantic ocean on the same, or next, day.

That sudden beginning of the ‘invisible’ moon’s effect upon the sun during daytime hours brings a brief glimpse into Isiaah 13:10…

For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not give their light;
The sun will be darkened in its going forth,
And the moon will not cause its light to shine.

Let’s take a closer look and analysis of that day’s event, courtesy of Google Maps

NASA/Goddard Flight Centre describes its path: ‘The last total solar eclipse of the 20th century begins in the North Atlantic about 300 km (190 ml) south of Nova Scotia where the Moon’s umbral shadow first touches down on Earth at 09:30:57 UT. Along the sunrise terminator, the maximum duration is a mere 47 seconds as seen from the center of the narrow 49 kilometers-wide path. No major landfall occurs for the first forty minutes as the shadow sweeps across the North Atlantic. The umbra finally reaches the Isles of Scilly off the southwestern coast of England at 10:10 UT (Figure 6 – below)

At this locale, it is already mid-morning with the Sun 45° above the eastern horizon… One minute later (10:11 UT), the umbra arrives along the shores of the Cornwall Peninsula. In the following four minutes, the shadow skirts the southern coast giving eager observers a brief taste of totality. Plymouth, the largest English city in the path, is north of center line and witnesses a total phase lasting 1 minute 39 seconds. London misses the total phase but experiences partiality…By 10:16 UT, the umbra leaves England as it quickly traverses the English Channel…Not since 1961 has the Moon cast its dark shadow upon central Europe…’ (emphases added)

I recall watching it from central Reading, noting the eerie effect of diminished daylight, but now I’m intrigued that the linked illustration could mirror the construction plan of a massive bridge – like Evgeni Denev’s ‘Endless Bridge’ shown above, the three circles shown in Fig 6 representing a bridge’s columnar piers.

North America’s New England and ‘New Scotland’ – all ‘Newly-Found-Land’

The ‘Mayflower’ was the English galleon that transported the first Puritans, known today as the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’, in 1620 from Plymouth (famous for its role in the sighting and defeat of the Spanish Armada) over the Atlantic to the New World. They were Bible-believing, ‘non-conformist’ Christians seeking religious freedom and tolerance far away from both Catholic and Protestant Europe in our American colonies. That event was the birth of a strong Christian bond that has grown between the UK and USA, despite all the differences in church-state relationships and theological emphases.

After a gruelling 10 weeks at sea, the Mayflower’s 102 passengers and crew of about 30 reached America, dropping anchor near the tip of Cape Cod on November 11, 1620. (NB. double number 11 in that arrival date: 11th day of 11th month, 400 years ago!! So maybe it’s of significance (see Footnote 2 of previous post)?

After hitting the ‘publish’ button for the previous post at 17:30 on Tuesday, I visited the post to hit ‘share Facebook’ button and thereby put it on my personal profile.

I was so amazed to note a response got flagged up within minutes, and upon reading the comment I got well and truly ‘God-smacked!’ It was directly related to what I’d sensed! AND from over the ‘Pond’ in Nova Scotia – Maxine Phyllis writes:

“Oh, thank God you posted that. I had forgotten all about it. August 11 was also the date of my wedding thirty years ago and the number 21 has figured prominently in my life. I connect it to the archangel Michael in the book of Daniel – he had to fast 21 days before receiving a visitation from Michael. Also, I was 21 years old when I first met the Lord in a powerful encounter outdoors, after a vehicle accident in the Yukon wilderness of Canada. I was amazed that I was unharmed and simply spoke out into the air ‘God are you there?’ Immediately an answer came and hit me like a lightening bolt – “I Am”. From then until now I’ve heard Him speak to me about Michael, and how Michael is needed to deliver the Church out of the influence of Babylon. Also, it is the archangel Michael who overcomes the devil himself along with the word of our testimonies from those who didn’t shrink back from death (and I would be one). Hallelujah for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns!!”

Some minutes later Maxine commented along similar lines on the actual post itself. BUT what she – and other readers – did not know was her references to Archangel Michael are not only directly relevant but also validate Ben and my personal references to Luke 21:28!

How? Why? Nowhere within Luke’s record of Jesus’ prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem as well as End-time events is there any reference to angelic involvement. But now look fully at my dear mother’s Sunday Missal; of which page 67 only is shown at the close of the previous post for its highlit verse is the reason I immediately reacted to Ben’s quoting Luke 21:28 > >

The preceding page 66 is headed by Pope Leo XIII’s prayer to Michael the Archangel penned after a dread vision of God and satan on 13th October 1884 and the future of the Church. (This page completed the whole liturgy with Latin on left-hand-pages and English on right. Thenceforth, pages show Sundays sequentially in the liturgical year with illustration of the theme of each mass followed by relevant scriptures, as shown.)

NOW BELIEVE ME – I’m hurrying to finish this off for an early start to our weekend but THAT number 66 was also mentioned by Jonathan Hill when writing about number 11, (Footnote 2 of previous refers). Please understand that his following notes are NOT directly related to my above remarks and any anecdotal coincidence or meanings. His knowledge of Hebrew numbers is related purely to the scriptures, as developed in his two seminal books. In this week’s email referred to earlier, Jonathan writes:

“For a deeper understanding of these events, we need to know the biblical meaning of two numbers, the number ‘666’ which is associated with the final anti-Christ in Revelation 13:18 and the number ‘66’ – a less known biblical number. As it happens, the number ‘66’ is associated with ‘forerunner’ anti-Christs of 1 John 2:18 because of the Old Testament character Absalom who is a strong type of the final anti-Christ (because he usurped David’s throne). Absalom is first mentioned in the Bible in 2 Samuel 3:3 and this verse has a numerical value of 666 (Ordinal method). Moreover, the Hebrew name of ‘Absalom’, in this same verse, has a numerical value of ‘66’ Another important reference to ‘66’ in scripture is in 1 John 2:18 where the Greek words ‘even now’, as an adverbial phrase of time (regarding forerunner anti-Christs rising), have a numerical value of ‘66’ (και [20] νυν [46]).

“…11th triangular number is ‘66’ and so ‘11’s and the number ‘66’ are biblical markers concerning events closely preceding the Millennium and forerunner anti-Christs… Two notable forerunner anti-Christs (anti-Semitics and anti-capitalists) were Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden who both died a violent death exactly 66 years apart (to the day).”

Thus, an exceptionally intriguing ‘coincidence’ of a prayer for protection on a page 66.

THE LORD’S GPS

Readers know my thoughts on the Lord using His own GPS system, or Global Prophecy Signalling system. This 50th is an excellent example because the eclipse includes the locations of a couple of recipients of His ‘message’ – Ben Kay in Plymouth, Devon, is the first recipient, joint seconds are Jonathan Hill (W Sussex) and myself (E Hants) as I was reading his email about number 11 when Ben’s arrived, and Maxine over ‘The Pond’ in Nova Scotia, Canada, is fourth.

Doesn’t it make you wonder what awesome things are coming our way from the Lord? And perhaps how the 400th Anniversary of arrival of the ‘Mayflower’ in America may be of great significance in His plans???

To Him alone be all the Glory.

PS. Within 3 weeks along came 9 signals from both sides of the ‘Pond’, as shown in Last Week’s GPS on New Church also include USA & Canada (GPS #51).

‘God-incidence’ of 11 and 21st (3×7) anniversary of solar eclipse – “Look up for your redemption draws nigh!”

Not bothering to note today’s date, my intended online priority after the days morning tasks was to respond to a reference to number 11’s meaning by Jonathan Hill in his weekend email. BUT after opening my in-tray, what then dropped in from Ben Kay in Plymouth ‘God-incidentally’ highlights ’11’!! “ACE, absolutely brill Ben”, I immediately respond in my seeking his permission to copy; and so he puts it into perspective

“Glad that this email has hit the mark. It was interesting how it came about as I had no intention to write all these things until late last night when I sensed the Lord reminding me about the eclipse and prompting me to write an encouragement. It took a few hours but managed to get it sent out this morning thankfully. I meant to be writing… but sensed this interruption to my plans last night were from the Lord so decided to go with the flow…!”

Let’s ‘get in the flow’ of what the Lord’s indicating through Ben, as told under this title from Luke 21:28 (NB 7×3:7×4):

“LOOK UP…FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH!”

Good Morning,

Normally I simply send out dates and information about prayer meetings (such as the next PRAY UK meeting on 22nd August!)

However, this is a simple encouragement to keep pressing on when you may be feeling the pressure of life… to keep on looking up when you might be feeling down…and a reminder that we are held in the palm of the One who holds the whole world in His hands.

‘…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3 vs 12-14)

Last night, I remembered that today is a special anniversary for those in Devon and Cornwall who, 21 years ago today, witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the 1999 solar eclipse.

Indeed, you may have seen the special marker that was placed near Plymouth Hoe (by the cannons on Madeira Road) to remind us of this special moment. It is in the shape of a cross on the pavement.

‘X’ marks the spot where at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of August 1999, the sun was turned to darkness and the moon turned a blood red colour above Plymouth and the surrounding region, and there followed 2 minutes of eerie darkness in the middle of the day, before the light of the sun broke through once again.

As I look back on this day with a sense of awe, I’m reminded of who it is that not only created the earth, the moon and the sun but actually brought them into alignment and scheduled this special moment at the beginning of time. For no solar eclipse randomly happens but each one was timetabled from the moment of creation.

‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”‘ (Genesis 1:14 KJV emphasis mine)

By all accounts (eg. Wikipedia’s Solar Eclipse of 11th August, 1999), this was a special eclipse. This was ‘one of the most-viewed solar eclipses in the whole of human history’ and the first that could be viewed from the UK since 1927.

As illustrated therein, the total eclipse started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2000km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall. Interestingly, the eclipse then went from here to have an impact on the rest of Europe as well as parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia…2 billion people in all!

There are many prophetic words that have been spoken about the region over the years indicating that God is about to do something special. Given that an eclipse can also be defined as an ‘over-shadowing’, perhaps God’s Spirit is brooding and getting ready to bring forth ‘fullness of life’ in this region as expressed in John 10:10’s  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.

Furthermore, perhaps the precise time and direction of the eclipse over Plymouth and the region indicates that an end-time revival of great magnitude is coming that will have an impact on multitudes throughout the nations.

But if life is tough right now, perhaps we just need to hang in there. In the natural, there is much pressure on a baby in the birthing canal just before it is born.

‘We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.’ (2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9 TLB)

God is in control, even though we may feel everything is out of control.

‘and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose’. (Romans 8 v 28)

Not all things are good…but in all things, we trust God is working things out for our good and birthing His purposes and plans in our lives.

When we’re in the thick of it, sometimes it is hard to see the bigger picture.

Perhaps this recent prophetic word from Veronika West entitled, ‘It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is Ticking‘, will serve as an encouragement to ‘look up’ at this time and keep ‘watching and praying’…

Here’s an excerpt from this relatively short word:

‘So stay watching and praying in these days, as the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow upon the threshing floor of the Nations. Listen and pay close attention! Tick, tock, tick, tock…the sound of destiny’s clock can be heard in the realm of the Spirit. Do you hear it? Are you ready? Are you aligned and rightly positioned? Are you walking in time with My Spirit?

Beloved…See! For this is a kairos time…an appointed time in the earth…a time of divine Shifting, Sifting, Scattering and Separation has surely begun…for the Nations at a divine tipping point are now being Shifted…the wheat and the tares are now being Sifted…Yes!…and the demons of hell are now being Scattered and the goats and sheep Nations are now being Separated…Watch! As the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow forth upon the Harvest fields of the Nations…Beloved, Get ready!!

This follows on from a recent dream Veronika West had in June 2020 (Hourglass of End-time Harvest).

Veronika explains, “This dream came with such an urgency of the times and the need to begin to cry out for the nations of the earth who are in the valley of decision. I believe this dream speaks to the 11th hour. A kairos time in the earth. An appointed time of the End-time Harvest!”

The details of the dream and Veronika’s interpretation take a little longer to read than the above prophetic word…but it is well worth reading and reflecting upon.

The dream concludes with the following words:

“Watch and Pray! For but a little while longer the Golden Revolving Door of The Ages and of Eternal Destiny stands open before the nations. As the days of My Grace and Mercy are poured out upon the nations, watch! For the time is here, for the 11th Hour Harvesters will herald the birthing of a new great awakening on the earth!”

Veronika’s dream reminds me of an encounter I had with God after attending a prayer meeting at Plymouth Christian Centre back in 2012. I was left with a clear sense that we’re living in the closing age of time before Jesus returns for His bride.

Read more about this ’11th hour’ encounter HERE in Why ’12am CRY’? and listen-read-watch RT Kendall explain more about ‘What is the Midnight Cry?’.

Anyhow, this has now turned out to be a much longer email than originally envisaged, so I’ll finish here with a couple of verses encouraging us to rouse to the reality of the time we are living in…

‘Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armour of light. (Romans 13 vs 11-12 AMPC)

Every blessing,

Ben Kay

RB Footnotes:
  1. I wrote Ben, “Not only does your Luke 21:28 header tie in with scripture relating to the night Jesus visited me (and thus the First Sunday of Advent, celebrating His Return – as illus. below), but also and in depth, today’s date of 11th ties in with the details of an email I want to reply to later after returning home.”
  2. Jonathan Hill, author of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, remarks in his recent email upon the Biblical meanings numbers ‘11’ and ‘12’: ‘The number ‘12’ represents the governmental perfection of Israel in the Millennium (12 tribes of Israel etc.). Number ‘11’ precedes ‘12’ and speaks of ‘anticipation’ of Millennium. As part of the Biblical Watch, ‘11’s appearing in global events/signs before the upcoming Millennium may, therefore, be part of this anticipation and signify events which closely precede the Millennium. The 11th hour warning of Armistice Day 1918 (11th hour of 11th day of 11th month) is one such sign’.’
  3. In referring to ’11’ and ’12’ Jonathan has ‘God-incidentally’ connected into Ben’s message on today’s date of 11th as 21st anniversary of the solar equinox at Plymouth – as well as into his calling at 11th hour on 7.9.2012 (see 12am Cry). (Also, 21 = 7 x 3.)
  4. And just as intriguing: I find yesterday’s total number of views on this website is two twelves, ie 1,212. MOREOVER, ‘two twelve’ was the number of my childhood home where that Visitation in 1989 was located!

CONCLUSION: THE LORD IS GETTING OUR ATTENTION – HAS HE GOT YOURS?

PS: Two ‘GPS’ confirmations were immediately received, as recounted here.

Triple-blast of ‘The Blessing’ video brings medically attested healing!!!

After being blasted by the Holy Spirit last Friday evening Nina felt able to take the wrap-around thigh-to-calf velco brace off and try walking normally and then sleep without it – NO PAIN AT ALL! Thank you Lord.
And so much easier to walk, albeit carefully, without being weighed down by brace and needing any support of a wheeled frame or crutches!! Moreover, no need trying to sleep with a straightened leg. Thank the Lord her leg wasn’t in a plaster-cast!

Yesterday, the orthopaedic consultant and the casualty doctor whom Nina first saw 25 days ago were amazed at her rapid progress because the latter had said it would take 6-8 weeks for the fractured knee-cap to knit and be strong enough to resume normal activity!!!  The consultant’s nurse just gaped; mouth open!

Afterwards, Nina saw the casualty doctor, who had to check Nina was the same person whom she’d seen and given that long prognosis. So Nina showed her 3 times how well the knee bends. “It shouldn’t be able to do that!” the doctor exclaimed and agreed the unexpected progress was “indeed” the result of prayer-support – AND we know it was Holy Spirit’s tangible fiery touch too! WE PRAISE YOU LORD! (The consultant advises it’s helpful to take walks using two-poles to avoid any fall, and take care on stairs.)

Reclining armchair enables sitting whilst wearing leg-brace

When I blogged here about what happened we hadn’t realised the healing the Lord was bringing but, as pointed out last night by the pastor of Catch The Fire Farnborough and who’s seen miracles overseas, worshiping Jesus is the best place to receive healing. (We well know this from 14 years ago when Nina was able to dance in worship whilst officially registered as permanently disabled – see From ‘Disabled’ to Enabled.)

You may have read about the Holy Spirit’s powerful double-visit in The Blessing Videos Fulfill…Prophecies but for the record here’s the fuller account with third visit:

1st ‘Sizzle’:

‘..(Friday evening) Nina was hit by a double ‘strike’ of the Holy Spirit whilst hearing this song twice! We’d been invited to watch The Surge, an online broadcast of leaders of the charismatic movement arising from the Toronto Outpouring…After John and Carol Arnott’s ‘welcome’ this historic event began with its own rendition of The Blessing, opened by a pianist at CTF Bournemouth followed by singers across the global family of CTF-PIH churches.

‘Upon my turning towards Nina whilst they sang, I saw her sizzling in her recliner-chair as she felt Holy Spirit surging up and down her.’

2nd ‘Sizzle’:

‘After the 2-hour session we watched The UK Blessing and at the end Nina stood up to move as best she could with a leg in brace to go upstairs. However, YouTube autoplay went on to the song’s version done in South Africa and, with her feet firmly placed at the foot of the stairs, she found herself gently falling face-first into the carpeted stairwell as a black African sang “…And make His face to shine upon you”!! WOWEEE!!!!

‘Then, I was struck that this song of the Old Testament’s Aaronic blessing could fulfill a number of prophecies of recent years. The latest of these was issued just 3 weeks ago by Christie Johnson of Australia’s Gold Coast, as republished on this blog in Watch the Horizon, Here Come the Waves of Awakening, one element of which reads:

‘3. The Sound and the Wind – A New Sound of Worship: “I first heard an unusual sound that I wasn’t familiar with. I believe this is speaking of a new sound of worship that is going to precede the mighty outpouring. This worship is beginning to break forth, even now, all across the earth…”

‘Moreover, the song’s verse that felled my wife speaks directly into the application of that prophetic vision and word: ‘Divine strategy for this new sound:…this is a moment of setting yourself in a position to gaze upon the face of the Beloved….!!’

3rd ‘Sizzle’:

Over the weekend, Nina mentioned friends had asked if she’d seen another version and so we sat to watch ‘The Blessing (Kids)’, but this time it brought far more than a ‘sizzle’!

Nina was transfixed in her recliner with her body shaking and eyes almost popping out on stalks…!

Prophecy of great humbling, then spiritual revival in Great Britain (GPS #47.3 cont’d – F/P #165.1)

A great thank you to Carolyn Stewart for transcribing this vital message (previous post refers). Note it was received last November at a time of unprecedented political upheaval in Parliament and speaks directly into this year’s unprecedented economic situation arising from global covid-19 pandemic. And yesterday came news of Britain’s humiliation internationally, as well as scientifically. Hence inclusion of this prophecy in the catalogue of fulfilled prophecies or those coming to pass (Footnotes refer).

“I just want to share this prophetic word. I was looking through my phone and I found this. (The current date is..we are in April 2020). And as I was looking through my phone of prophecies I found this one called ‘The Humbling of Great Britain’, which I’d never put out before. I completely forgot about it. So I think in the light of what’s going on at the moment, it is very relevant. It is a warning, but it is also an encouragement of what God is doing in our land. I thought I should release this now.

“As I said, this was given in November 2019. This was just before I died as well, so it is quite a significant prophecy. And as I said, I’d forgotten all about it. I just found it on my phone, but I feel it’s important to release it, so I’ll leave it with you. Please listen, please enjoy, please be blessed, and please spread it around as well.

THE HUMBLING OF GREAT BRITAIN (November 2019)

“I will have the people in this land in derision”, says the Lord. “I will pour out my Spirit on this land, and those people that have called to come together to conspire, to tear down My ways and My precepts and My ordinances from this land – this green and pleasant land. Mark My words: I will have them in derision. I am in the heavens and I laugh at their futility, at the things that they’re attempting to do, to close Me off and shut Me off from My own creation and so close down and shut down My people. For that is their ultimate aim. They want Me and every trace of Me eradicated from the land and from education and from every part of this society.

But mark My words; I have plans to prosper this country, and I will bring to shame the wise. I will shame those who have so loftily held their head up – their stiff-necked heads that have said, ‘We will bring our ways! We will bring in our precepts and ordinances in this land, and we will eradicate God, and we will take Him off his throne. And we shall destroy His church.  But not so!

“Sadly, My own Church has failed to see how impoverished and how weakened she has become. She is literally now a remnant in this country. Yet I will do great things with a remnant. Yet when it was I can take three hundred foot-soldiers with Gideon and I can do a great deliverance, and I will do the same also in this land. I will take this small remnant of a Church that is left – those Christians that genuinely acknowledge Me as their Lord and Saviour – and will not bow the knee to Baal and to all his false practices and customs in respect to the laws that are now passing in this land.

Mark My words, punishment will come for the sins that have covered this land. But the punishment, as I always punished Israel in times past, was so that it may bring them to repentance and may bring healing to their land; that when the people are humbled they would pray to me and I would turn in My mercy, I would forgive them their sins and I would then heal their land. I am going to bring punishment to this nation – a time of humbling – but this punishment is not to destroy this nation. This punishment is to humble her and to chastise her, that she may repent of her wicked ways and turn back to Me.

“There will not be many nations in the days ahead that will be permitted to have what this nation will be permitted. You will have a grace and a favour upon you which many other nations will not be given because I have plans and purposes for this country. And even though My own people have been faithless harlots towards Me, know this; that your faithlessness will only go to prove My faithfulness. I will be faithful to My Covenant and to My Word, and I will bring about My ways and My means for this country, and I will pour out My Spirit. And I will bring Revival, but it will not be like any revival that has been before. It will be uncontainable; it will be uncontrollable; and the world will HATE it because it will be so strong and it will be so powerful that they cannot ignore it.

“In times past they’ve been able to turn a blind eye to the things of My Spirit, but in these days everyone will know about it, everybody will know about it. And the same sun that melts the ice also hardens the clay, and men will just drop into two distinct camps: those that love Me and those that absolutely hate Me. This is why in many respects these days are dangerous days, because it will polarize people, in ways stronger than they are now; but you will know the righteous and you will know the evil.

But mark My words, I will do something wonderful with this country; I will restore law and order to this country. This country has become lawless and it has no more order to it. And your Houses of Parliament are an example of the state of your nation, of the division of your nation, of the complexities of your nation. The wickedness and the hardness of heart and the blindness and arrogance of your nation are all set to display, for all the world to see in your own Houses of Parliament. But I am going to do a new thing. And many men will lay down their crowns and place down their swords before Me and repent and give their lives to me. And many powerful men and women who vehemently hate My name, will come to know Me and love My name.

“And some Christians might go, ‘Why, why Lord did you save them? They’re the ones who brought such depravity to our nation. Why did you allow it?’  Because that’s My grace, that’s My mercy, and the very ones that brought in those laws, I will turn into trophies of grace to make the enemy despised in his own camp, for I will make those who passed those wicked laws be the ones that undo them, for they will reveal the secrets and the dark intent and heart of sinful wicked flesh. And the world or this country at least, will look on in horror at the things that they’ve released and allowed in this country, and they will be rescinded and retracted.

“My people, you need to do this: you need to be spending these hours – because it is only hours – you need to be spending these hours in prayer; you need to be spending these hours on your knees; you need to be spending this time in the Word, learning from Me, learning from My Spirit and I will teach you many wonderful things. But this is the time, because there are many bridesmaids out there that do not have enough oil in their lamp and you need to get it in your lamp. No-one can part-exchange their life of intimacy with Me to those that have no intimacy with Me. This is your chance; now is the time to do it, for in the humbling that’s coming – this wind of change that’s going to blow through this land – it’s going to be a difficult time for this nation. It will not be a long time, but the depth of the punishment that will come will be severe, even though it will only be for a short time. It was like when I said to King David, “You can have three years of this, three months of that, or three days of the other”.

“This will be a short punishment but it will be a deep punishment; a deep chastisement to this nation. And I will humble this nation and I will turn her around. And many who are your enemies in these days will become your friends and neighbours in the days to come.

“So be prepared, be encouraged but be warned; this is not going to be an easy day that is coming, it is going to be a difficult day, a difficult time for this nation. Many Christians will cry out, ‘Why did I allow such things to come to this nation?’ But in part, everyone in this nation is responsible for the punishments that are coming.

“There is much worldliness in My Body, much worldliness in My Church, much worldliness in the mindset of Christians, much worldliness in the teachings of the Church! And the teachings of the Church have lost their anchor. They have apostasised; they have become an apostate church, in that they’ve drifted away from the truth of scripture and have chosen to allow the doctrines of men to infiltrate the teachings of the Church. The sacred scriptures should never be changed, never diluted, never touched, never altered, for they sacred and they are from the throne room of heaven itself. How dare man place his DNA and his ideas over that which is heavenly and beyond?

“So take heart to these words and this warning. Be blessed, be encouraged and get ready, for the time is now when the humbling must begin. And it will be short but long. It will be a short period of time but it will feel like the longest period of time, for it will be very intense. And for a period of three years a time of great humbling will come upon this nation, and it will be a heavy three years, a very difficult three years.

“But then things will change, things will turn, and you will go from Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, Summer into Harvest time.”

  • Britain criticised around the world for ‘complacent’ and ‘calamitous’ coronavirus response (6 May)
  • Despite Ferguson fiasco No 10 about to make its second major blunder (7 May) viz:

    ‘The biggest political con in modern history has descended into farce. Professor McLockdown, has choked on his own junk science, resigning from Sage after the Telegraph exposed that he flouted the very mass house arrest he advocated for everyone else. But his defence – that he broke the rules because he had already caught the virus and recovered from it – is even more revelatory; turns out Britain’s most influential epidemiologist believes that not only can you gain immunity from Covid-19, but that this should release you from lockdown.

    ‘If No 10’s response to coronavirus was really based on “following the science”, of course, these new details about Prof Ferguson’s view might be a game-changer, prompting, at the very least, Downing Street discussions of how to rapidly loosen the rules for those who have had the virus. Like with all good farces, though, the most absurd is yet to come. Incredibly, Downing Street shows little sign of learning from the Ferguson Chapter. And, astonishingly, once again, “the science” is being compromised by political hysteria – a scandal that continues to be barely scrutinised.

    ‘But before we get to the meat, let us briefly chew over the cautionary tale that can be cleaved from the career of Prof Ferguson. He has a track record of making wildly inaccurate projections, for example that BSE would kill 150,000 people (the real figure was fewer than 200)…’

Was pastor’s fatal heart attack to prevent God’s warning to Britain and apostate church? (GPS #47.3)

At last, a fortnight later than intended this double-post gets off-the-press – but as we all know; timing is everything for it is the Lord’s.

As announced here, the programme screened 22nd April shows pastor Christopher Wickland’s two heart attacks at a trampoline park last November. Its CCTV captured the terrifying ordeal of that day out with his daughter and two younger boys. Nick Knowles’ narration is split into an introductory account from 0:45 to 12:00 minutes. He summarises the situation at 21:00m, then proceeds with details of Chris’ recovery and wife Tracey’s prayer-network action.

The footage may distress some but it demonstrates the prompt, proficient skills of the park’s manager and assistant in giving CPR and FIVE shocks by defribrillator. The manager says the pastor was “effectively dead”!  Although he started breathing after the fifth shock he was taken to Southampton’s cardiac intensive care unit, his brain started to deteriorate as soon as his heart stopped and remained inactive. Victims are not expected to survive with fully functioning brain after prolonged oxygen deprivation. So Chris was put into an induced coma.

The account was previously told in Premier Christian News and BBC South Today, as herein, of when his 12 years-old daughter phoned her mother, who immediately alerted their church and many others to pray for her husband’s resurrection from effective death without any brain and heart damage whatsoever. Praise the Lord that He did.

AND our heavenly Father must have done that so that a prophetic word He’d given this pastor would get delivered – otherwise why bless him and then only hours later take him home to heaven?? I suspect something else wanted to suppress it!

NOTE very carefully what Christopher had written on his Facebook 11 days before the latest BBC programme:

[OR, wait a short while for the next post’s transcript of this prophecy.]

In that FB thread Christopher kindly agrees to my asking a professional stenographer to produce a transcript. A week later I commented upon our battle-situation:

“Just to update you Christopher: transcript recvd Thurs a’noon b4 long weekend offline but began working on draft lead-in upon bbc’s CConCamera – correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems the adversary didn’t want that word made public, so took you out of the picture, BUT the Lord came up trumps!

“There’s strong opposition to this as I’d awoken that full blogging day (Thurs) with badly bloodshot eye PLUS early Sat morning (25 April) my wife Nina took bad fall and broke her right kneecap – so we’re in recovery mode and my hands are even fuller. Y’day, our cat got attacked by a vicious tomcat that disturbed her in our greenhouse, chasing her to the house!!”

He responds  “Gosh. You have gone through the wars. Yes agreed. When I received the word I sensed the enemy was really angry with me for knowing his plans. But God got the victory and the glory and the word still got released. He is so good. Will be praying for your protection.”  (Emphases added)
