Monday newsmix: UK re-awakening and more Muslims looking to Jesus

Hand with News icon - WatcharakunAfter a short break on the coast followed by a weekend course on living in Holy Spirit’s anointing, I trawled through my in-tray and was very pleased with the following good news. Both items are related to visionary and prophetical words, the first comes from our county town, and the second from the wider Middle-East.

Can These Bones Live?

Dr Clifford Hill reacts as follows to what happened during the Pentecost celebrations:

“If anyone thought that Christianity was dying in the traditional churches of Britain, what happened in Winchester Cathedral last week would have shattered their illusions!”

He reports the ancient, hallowed building and grounds were packed out at that evening’s celebration. This was the culmination of nine days of prayer events for the evangelisation of Britain, as invited by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The Pentecost weekend itself culminated in six ‘Beacon events’ with video links to Canterbury Cathedral where the Archbishop, Justin Welby, gave a message based upon the Lord’s prayer, which he said was “reassuring enough to be on the lips of the dying and yet dangerous enough to be banned in cinemas!”

Read Clifford’s full report here, which closes with his asking,

“Was this a sign that something special is beginning to happen in the old denominational churches? Will the spiritual life of the nation be transformed by a new generation embracing the gospel in their own culture as the Holy Spirit breathes new life into the unchanging message of salvation and “Jesus is Lord!” is once again heard on the lips of children and young people?”

In my humble opinion, “Yes it is a sign” and my initial thought was of the prophetic promise heard at Ffald-y-Brenin retreat centre, as blogged two years ago in Resurrection Coming to the Anglican Church.:

‘The usual morning liturgical prayer time got overshadowed by the Lord, who reminded them of the raising of Lazarus. They were told He’s going to call the Anglican Church out of its grave and bring it back to life!’

Of all the words published in this blog this may be exceptional because it was the first to be severely criticised, as related in this post about our later visit to Ffald-y-Brenin.  Also, this latest event reflects what others have observed of an increasing number returning to the Anglican fold and other churches – yet without denominational divisions as in bygone eras. And, of course, readers of this blog are aware of many prophetic words about a new era in the Church and move of God in the UK; eg, brought by Heidi Baker (with updates).

Intense Persecution Brings Harvest of Muslims

The exciting news continues of many Muslims seriously doubting their faith and looking and turning to Jesus in reaction to it being returned to its original barbaric practices. As blogged about Iran and a significant warning in Mecca (here and here respectively), as well as other posts, this is personally encouraging in view of a vision I had in 1992 on the fall of Islam (see this email).

Another morning email Is There Any Good News From the Mid-East? alerted me to Joel Rosenberg’s latest post, in which his friend Tom Doyle answers,

“Yes, despite intense prosecution we’re also seeing a great harvest of Muslims turning to Christ.”

After providing several wonderful examples, especially of those martyred on a beach in Libya to the shock of the world, Tom asks why is it that Muslims are now coming to faith in Christ in significant numbers? His answer:

One of the reasons is that Islamic terrorists are killing violently for their faith, while followers of Jesus are dying peacefully for their faith. Muslims are watching the violence and it has soured them towards their religion. It has also opened them up to the possibility that there may be something to this Jesus after all. They see hate in Radical Islam and love among the Jesus followers, even as they are taken to be executed. What a contrast.

“Yes, Christians are being persecuted openly in the Middle East. But they are standing strong, and this has served to spread the gospel even more rapidly. In a world of bad news, that is very good news.”

Indeed it is. And as noted in Good News: Christian Revival in N Africa, the Cartheginian early Church author Tertullian observed the same and formulated the famous dictum:

“The blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church.”

Reports of ‘Awakenings’ cont’d – “Get ready to jump!”

Endless Bridge by Evgeni DenevLet me now share some personal things about the last two posts that may be of interest.

Usually I take a long weekend cyber-break after Thursdays but last week it would be until Tuesday as Monday was a Bank Holiday. As I’d be elsewhere yesterday, I very quickly scan-checked my email on Saturday and noticed a couple from Michael Marcel. (We first met at inter-church prayer meetings for the Thames Valley in Reading in late-1990s and last saw one another at a recent mentoring day in Windsor.)

I sensed it was important to reply to Michael’s email news with some from David Robinson of Bloxham, who too had emailed me on Friday about ‘Awakenings’ in USA, plus an earlier post of mine on related prophecies. Later we chatted on the phone after I’d updated him on what happened when I read out his email to Nina. I emailed him:

‘Have just finished early steak dinner and hooked laptop up to tv so we can check out the links I circulated from you and what David sent.

‘So then happened to notice (other) emails and read them out to Nina…(next) I read aloud your one to pastors but she’d already heard, “Get ready to jump!”

‘After saying so and my starting to reply to you, she then got a picture of a trampoline in a garden and saw a man using it and bouncing so high he went off flying and disappeared from view! She heard that, just as our ordinary muscles need to be used and flexed – so too do our spiritual muscles. She also knows there’s a distinct difference between ordinary and spiritual bouncing, as demonstrated in that ‘video’ picture!’

Michael phoned whilst we were watching Patricia King bring a prophetic word to those meetings in San Diego (as below) and, as he’d just returned from there, I asked if it was connected with her XP Ministries of Maricopa, Ariz, or Harvest International Ministries with Che Ahn in the Pasadena area.

He said, “No, neither – it’s not of any ministry. It’s non-denominational”.  Terrific, that’s as it should be.  I happened to mention about the many times we sense in our spirits, and even getting Holy Spirit ‘sizzles’, when watching Him moving and touching folk in Church of His Presence (Alabama), and explained that I refer to it as “Bridge Over the Pond”  (see Holy Lightning Beyond ‘The Pond’ Strikes in UK in particular).

Michael’s response intrigued me. He said, in one of his books Rick Joyner describes Holy Spirit’s going across the ocean as being like moving over a very long bridge!!

Hmm…very interesting…watch this space!

Salvation comes to Hindu and Muslim

As well as circulating email news to church leaders of ‘An Awakening Season’, as in the previous post, Michael Marcel also separately reported how salvation came to two people of other faiths.:

Testimony (email 29th April)
A Hindu woman was walking in Leicester last week. She had struggled with depression for a long time and she saw in a vision a man dressed in white walk up to her and say, “Go to the house on your street with number 2 on it and a woman there will tell you how to restore your heavy heart”.
She went straight home, walked down her street to house number 2 and a Christian lady who has been saved out of the Hindu faith answered the door bell. She told this woman the vision of the man in white, and the lady promptly shared the gospel and prayed for her. She was saved and healed and came to church the following day! She is now sharing her new-found faith with her family; all of them have seen that she is no longer depressed and want to know what happened.
 
God is definitely on the move in this nation!
Another Testimony (email 1st May)
A Muslim man in Leicester had a dream; in the dream he saw a man dressed in white standing next to a cross, the man in white told him to go to the clock tower tomorrow at 12pm and a man who (will be) standing there will tell you what you must do.

The next day he went to town and found a street preacher at the clock tower, he told the preacher his dream and was then saved as a result. The same night this Muslim man had a dream that his sister in the Middle-East had a similar dream, except she was told to call her brother in the evening, On phoning her brother told her what had happened and shared the gospel and she was saved!

Thank and praise you Lord for what you are doing in bringing not-yet-believers into the Kingdom.

BBC headlines quote Queen proclaiming the Gospel on Christmas Day


In delighted astonishment we heard BBC News voice-over-video headlines announce on Christmas Day that the Queen had said,

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Moreover, I realised that by declaring a scriptural statement as Head of the Church of England and hereditary Defender Of The Faith, and in its being heralded and announced by national media, our longest reigning monarch’s biblical declaration has the power of a prophetic decree. (If you’re unfamiliar with this principle see this two-part report on spiritual alignment and decrees.)

The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast to the Commonwealth follows the pattern set by King George V (her grandfather) in the very first broadcast in 1932. Upon introducing this startling innovation he opened it with, “I speak now from my home and from my heart to you all“.

Yearly our sister in the Lord refers to her Christian belief as a source of inspiration and comfort. This Christmas Her Majesty made no bones about the majesty of her faith, as in forthright yet gracious remarks about the Good News of God in the birth of Jesus Christ..

Soon after opening, Her Majesty speaks about reflecting upon the year’s events,

“Many people say the first Christmas after losing a loved one is particularly hard. But it’s also a time to remember all that we have to be thankful for.

“It is true that the world has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it’.”

Jesus’ Message of Love

She continues by referring to the custom Queen Victoria and Prince Albert introduced of using fir-trees at Christmas, and every year since WWII the people of Oslo send a huge tree for erection in Trafalgar Square. (Over 1,000 years ago our Saxon kings brought our ancient Viking enemies to Christ, especially Olaf 1 of Norway.)

Furthermore, Her Majesty related this and Jesus’ birth to the contemporary migration of refugees to Europe:

“…(this London tree) has five hundred light-bulbs and is enjoyed not just by Christians but by people of all faiths, and of none. At the very top sits a bright star, to represent the Star of Bethlehem.

“The custom of topping a tree also goes back to Prince Albert’s time. For his family’s tree, he chose an angel, helping to remind us that the focus of the Christmas story is on one particular family.

“For Joseph and Mary, the circumstances of Jesus’s birth — in a stable – were far from ideal, but worse was to come as the family was forced to flee the country. It’s no surprise that such a human story still captures our imagination and continues to inspire all of us who are Christians, the world over.

Despite being displaced and persecuted throughout his short life, Christ’s unchanging message was not one of revenge or violence but simply that we should love one another. Although it is not an easy message to follow, we shouldn’t be discouraged; rather, it inspires us to try harder: to be thankful for the people who bring love and happiness into our own lives, and to look for ways of spreading that love to others, whenever and wherever we can.” (Emphasis added.)

Read her message in full on the official website The British Monarchy, or watch the above video.

A couple of Press reports

In Monarch quotes from Bible to address a nation shaken by a year of atrocities, the Telegraph’s religious affairs team open as follows,

‘The Queen used her Christmas Day broadcast to make one of her most overtly religious addresses to the nation in recent years. Quoting directly from the Gospel of John, she spoke of light which “shines in the darkness” which she described as a “verse of great hope”.

‘Her comments come at the end of a year in which Britain has been stunned by terrorist atrocities, from the mass shootings and bombings in Paris last month to the gun attack at a Tunisia resort during the summer.

 ‘Reflecting on the past 12 months, the monarch said: “It is true that the world has had to confront moments of darkness this year. But the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it’.”

That broadsheet’s Boxing Day editorial also notes,

‘Britain’s religious leaders are in the mood for telling home truths. In a stark Christmas sermon, the Most Rev Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, compared the Jihadist threat to King Herod, to whom Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales, also alluded. In the Bible, Herod orders the massacre of young children in a delirious attempt to kill Jesus Christ. In today’s Middle East, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) is no less bloodthirsty.

‘It murders critics and religious minorities, enforcing its religious code with violence. It represents a fanatical perversion of Islam, and to defeat it, the West must understand its motivations. Religious leaders, educated in theological nuance, are well placed to decode its language. Archbishop Welby told congregants that it seeks to trigger an “apocalypse… defined by themselves and heralded only by the angel of death”. Isil cannot coexist with Western democracy. It is hell-bent on destroying it.’

I’ve underscored the essential key to the solution that too many illiterate and misinformed political leaders have totally ignored to people’s peril.

There is more Encouragement for the Dawn of 2016, as reported by Prophecy Today UK:

“Despite all the problems our nation has faced over the last year, we at Prophecy Today found a little encouragement over the Christmas season to hear the Prime Minister’s affirmation of Christian values in our nation (see latest – RB) and also the Education Secretary’s resolve to promote the Christian heritage of Britain in our schools.”

It will be interesting to watch how all this may tie in with prophetical words received lately and being delivered in the coming months…

Return from clinical death reveals End-times urgency and impact of Sept 2015

A viral video in which an Israeli teenager describes what happened and what he learnt about the return of the Messiah whilst clinically dead is making waves around the world. Being controversial as well as fascinating, it raises many questions and reservations.

I first thank a contributor ‘over the pond’ for sending me the information late last month as well as folk here at Father’s House of Prayer for emailing me this week, thereby spurring me into action!

I’d read the first report but not had opportunity to see the video until a few days ago and, having now done so, I recognise its great importance. So I’m posting the video and links to covering articles for your earliest attention.  As the video drew to a close I especially noted that the boy shares an insight directly related to my own observation about the date which he refers to on the End-times! (See Tuesday’s post on September’s importance).

FIRST, read Breaking Israel News’ exclusive report Israeli Teen Returns for 15 mins of Clinical Death with Spiritual Messages Concerning the Coming Redemption. Later, they published an account of the interviewing rabbi’s own near-death experience and thus qualifying him to appreciate Natan’s experience.

(Details of End-times begin at 27:30 mark. My observations will follow in next post.)


As you assess teenage Natan’s account with what Jesus teaches, also watch his face as he recounts the good and troubling parts of what he learned and saw in the ‘movie of the future’.

Also, international body-language expert Susan Constantine’s professional assessment may be read here. (BIN claims her particular expertise lies in detecting deception.)

“Who is like the wise man, and who knows the meaning of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the boldness of his face is changed.” (Ecclesiastes 8:1)

On ‘crossing over’ and a coming Revival

The week after I’d marinated fruit for three days and then baked our Christmas cake I was sent the following by Patsy Southway wherein I read she’d also baked a cake!

Patsy SouthwayHere’s Patsy’s reflections and insights from PICK Ministries posted on 29th November.:

‘Last night as I was journaling, I saw a long line in the sand –  the Lord said that many of his children have been persistent in prayer, with declarations and believing hearts and have been patiently waiting to see the results – the breakthroughs.

Preparation
2013 Cake-2’But Father has been preparing OUR hearts to move into the ENLARGEMENT of His Kingdom that is coming.  He reminded me that as I made a Christmas cake this week, the amount of ingredients, the time mixing it altogether and then, of course, the hours it took to cook, was a lot of preparation so that we can enjoy a slice or two of Christmas cake!
How much more, the preparation of our hearts.  He is such a faithful Father, rich in mercy and compassion, loving us beyond our comprehension.

Birthing
’In a previous blog I wrote on the BIRTHING of Gods promises which He confirmed to me  on the same day, while I was in a bank and a school room in the Czech Republic.  His promises have NOT changed!  He is bringing together ALL that he has promised.
Times and seasons are in his hands – Eccls 3

CROSSING OVER
’This long line that I saw in the sand, was very long.  I could see some people were right up against it and others not too far away.  I sensed that God was showing me wherever they were on their journey depended on where they were positioned with Him,; they would all come to the line before crossing over.  There were no shortcuts!

‘Today is the last day of November and tomorrow brings the start of a new month, December.  ‘Shiftings’ have continued throughout this year, and as we move into the final month of 2015 and the time of CROSSING OVER this line in the sand has come, I could see HUGE waves of blessing were falling upon us as times of ABUNDANCE and REFRESHING had come!

‘It’s been a long haul for many of us but everything is for a Divine Purpose – it’s all about KNOWING HIM and making HIM KNOWN.’

ON REVIVAL

The subscriber who sent me a copy of the above commented that on the previous evening “the Lord spoke to our church and said in the next few weeks we would  begin to see the first signs of revival”.

In view of what William Smith shared over lunch a few weeks ago on revival, I forwarded the email to him. That he’s truly a humble servant of the Lord is clearly evident in the way he told his testimony, this part of which I’m sharing with his kind permission:

“I came to faith at 15 years of age and was preaching on the streets of Liverpool before I was 16. Preaching came so naturally to me that I knew that I was born for such an honour. I spent hours in prayer and bible study as a youth, while making time to be involved in some church based activity most nights of the week. ( I was born into and out of a Baptist background).

“Seeking God in prayer for my life, knowing that my dreams of being a footballer, or an actor, or classical singer were now irrelevant because of the fire in my soul, I lived in a desperation to hear His heart for me. I knew Bible College awaited me and it was during these prayer times that Father spoke so clearly to me. He said : 

“You will see major revival in this land in your lifetime and you will be instrumental in its happening.”

‘The term ” in your lifetime” was stamped on my mind and spirit. It meant that I would physically be on the earth and hands on in this revival. I would not be a witness from heaven to the events.’

That was 1963 and so Bill’s been carrying a prophetical promise for over 50 years just as Arthur Burt did (details here). I shared that I know the awesome nature of such promises. (Years ago my wife and I were briefly commanded, “Await His return!”, by a well-known prophet as he quickly walked by intent on talking to someone else.)

Bill thanked me for the copy email of Patsy’s and commented as follows.

‘It is a very encouraging word as well as confirming so much we are hearing from Abba God right now…
‘Something I noted in her words. The waves of blessings do not disturb the line in the sand. I see real significance in that. It is not a temporary line, it is established in Father’s plan and purpose. The waves of blessing may well be a means of many reaching and crossing the line.Not to be sad spectators, rather to become fully involved in the great commission of these last days.

‘So blessed by today’s word from you…’

Do you sense it? A “Quickening” ?

Kenzel kindly commented on the previous post about accelerating eschatology as follows: “I’m astonished. When I wrote ‘The Quickening’, I had no idea what could be in store…and the pace seems to be intensifying!” So here’s what he wrote in June (interesting thread too) :

Shining a light in the darkness

For weeks (maybe even months) I’ve sensed it.

Beyond that I’ve heard it as if it were a whisper in the wind.

The word: “Quickening”

I know a lot of people are reluctant to talk about The End of Days or End Times or The Tribulation. I imagine it frightens them. When I’ve accidentally happened upon the topic in conversation I hear:

  • “I don’t want to think about it,”
  • “I don’t want to talk about it,”
  • “It’s never gonna happen, it hasn’t for millennia”
  • “If God was coming, He would have come by now.”

The hard truth and reality is people (surrounded by a comfortable culture) don’t want to think or talk about something that might compromise, challenge or cause them to forfeit creature comforts.

Look at the bullet points above. And then consider what you might have to DO if you found out you were terminally ill? You WOULD…

Heidi Baker, Cindy Jacobs: prophetic messages verified and applied

Buzzing with irritation up in the corner of our conservatory warmed by the morning sun, a bumble bee distracts me from starting to tap out my thoughts. Catching it with a fishing net and rod, as used by children for crabbing, I take the bee to the open doors and release it.

Perhaps there’s a timely message in this minor distraction for my thoughts had been on ‘timing’ – and dare I bore readers by referring to that once again?  But it is significant, as I’ll explain below.

That bee’s busily been buzzing away aiming for the light, only to be confined by the glazed ceiling – yet now’s the time for release and he’s up and away! So too with this post. A vow had lain dormant – but never forgotten – at the back of my mind since I started blogging in late 2011. I’d intended writing about a new mission venture within the UK that was being launched as I was going public – Culture Changers.

Then after 3 years, it started buzzing after I’d posted the prophetic word of last October Heidi Baker brought for the UK. And it got louder with the word Cindy Jacobs delivered upon changing flights in Britain. That new mission is directly related to the application of both words and it’s time to release that ‘buzzing’ around me into the cyber-sphere.

Culture Changers – click for website’s homepage

Personal Connection

Culture Changers was launched by Hugh and Ginny Cryer after their leadership of the Winchester Vineyard church came to a close. Based in a large converted warehouse at the city’s perimeter and conveniently close to the M3, it was a most welcoming place for outsiders such as ourselves, but a tad too far to travel to attend regularly. We have fond memories of several conferences and Summer Saturday evenings devoted to worship once a month, when Hugh would deliver a ‘nugget’ or jewel of succinct teaching upon a Biblical topic.

Also, I was blessed with attending excellent courses on the End-times hosted by Keith Mackereth.

Being unable to attend a Revival Alliance gathering in London in Autumn of 2011, we were privileged to be at Hugh and Ginny’s briefing with their WinVin team.  I was humbled and over-awed to learn that what I’d dreamt about the Kingdom related to a prophetic word brought by Bill Johnson. (Details under ‘2011 Sep’ in this blog’s Library.)

Culture Changers incorporates the values of Kingdom culture espoused by the Revival Alliance (UK website and Facebook page). I’m especially impressed with their practice of honouring all brothers and sisters in the Lord and avoidance of criticism and being judgemental. (Had that been practised by ministers when I was young I wouldn’t have rejected Churchianity.)

Let Hugh and Ginny tell you about themselves before we learn the deep relevance of the prophetic words Heidi and Cindy brought for the UK.

Reconnecting Different Parts of God’s Family

In introducing themselves they also tell of the enfolding vision the Lord is giving them and how:

  • the Lord called them out of the established church to pioneer His Culture Changing Families.
  • He told them that the time for a “policing style of leadership” was over.
  • He supernaturally gave them a physical key of encouragement at a time of great adversity.
  • the Lord spoke about Culture Changers as being part of something bigger.
  • our heavenly Father approves of ‘organic’ as well as established churches – longing for all followers of Jesus, Messianic Jews and Gentiles of all churchmanships, to be reconnected in His Family with Jesus as our Head.

In view of my experiences it’s most heartening to hear Ginny’s closing words,

“Hugh and I suddenly began to realise it isn’t so much our connecting, or being part of connecting,  Anglicans and Catholics, Revival Alliance and streams, and all that sort of thing, but it’s the established and ‘organic’ church together that He is wanting to bring together, as His family is reconnected – as the Body of Christ is reconnected – in preparation for the Return of the King.”

The Heidi Baker Prophecy

On 21st December 2014 I was astonished with suddenly being reconnected ‘out of the blue’. I received this most encouraging email (emphases added):

“Thank you for the word I was sent from your Watch from Heidi – via ‘HS’ – it was very exciting to read as I had just heard the Lord say to me “you keep going and I will keep coming” – so we were amazed to read the first para of her word. Also, to read about the unity that she prophesies about as this is all part of our vision for Culture Changers.
“…So very encouraging – thank you.
Ginny Cryer

Read the full word Heidi delivered on a new move of God in the UK, the relevant part (edited) being:

“I just feel like this revival that God has promised in this nation – it’s another wave of revival He’s promised; I feel like it’s going to come as we go. It’s going to come as we go. It’s going to come as we go, says the Lord. This revival of radical love is going to come as we go…. and as we go, one by one by one by one there’s going to be a lighting up in the hearts of men and women in this city, in this nation.

“There’s going to be a movement of unity in the UK that’s going to shake the world, says the Lord. I hear the prophetic word of the Lord. It’s going to flow through the universities and the colleges of the universities. It’s going to flow through denomination and the non-denominations. There’s going to be a move of unity within the Body of Christ.”

The Cindy Jacobs Prophecy

The word Cindy brought is published in ‘Ezine’, Culture Changers’ web magazine, and prefaced by,

On 13th May Michael Marcel sent us a word from Cindy Jacobs when she came through Heathrow for a few hours and gave this word. It is particularly interesting to us as it confirms the word we had when we were in Israel in February when the Lord said to us that it is time for our voices to be heard. Cindy prophesies (click to read in full)

Here’s the edited part of the second word Cindy brought that would apply:

This is the season where I am giving you a loud voice, Body of Christ, and if you will speak now I will amplify that voice and it is going to begin to tip the nation…Go and see your MPs, make appointments. This is the season where you are to speak and be that loud voice, and if you will do that”, says the Lord, “I am going to give this window of awakening; that the power of God is going to rush into the UK, not just England; the power of God is visiting the whole of the UK.”

Some have already started to act upon this directive by writing to their MP and/or the Home Secretary. We’re now exhorted and encouraged to do so as well as to support, for example, the work of Prayer for Parliament.

Conclusion

Hence, now is the time to fulfil my personal vow by enabling all my readers and visitors to hear Hugh and Ginny and learn about their God-ordained ministry, Culture Changers.

I’d strongly encourage you to visit their website and learn about introducing the values of the Kingdom to all churches and society, as outlined in New Era and based upon the revelation of Father’s Heart.

God and Politics in the UK

Unbelievers Dawkins KraussI have a guilty secret – I actually quite like Richard Dawkins. It’s always good entertainment watching someone who is so eminent in his scientific field, continually putting his credibility on the line by taking on religion despite his limited knowledge of the subject. Through his attempts to dismiss all things religious he has ended up acting more and more along the lines of a High Priest of atheism, creating his own irreligious dogma in order to counter the religious dogmas he despises so much. Through his books, which include The God Delusion, he has gained worldwide fame and now we get to experience a taste of this superstardom in his own docufilm, The Unbelievers.

This film which was originally premiered at Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto in April 2013, is officially released today in the UK on DVD. The film follows Dawkins and his close friend, the…

Several bear witness to this month’s prophetic word

Endless Bridge by Evgeni DenevChristians over in America as well as here in the UK have born witness to parts of the prophetic word received in Glasgow. So it wasn’t for Scotland only!  Another instance of what I call ‘a bridge over The Pond’?

Be further inspired by those responses as  below, the first two of which plus mine are at the foot of Advance the Kingdom now, the others are from the USA:

1. M writes, “This witnesses with me; I’m writing a summary today of two similar prophetic messages from speakers I’ve heard recently, with a similar urgency (both have a ‘wake up’ theme)” and he refers to a friend “who had to have the kingdom business he is setting up now functioning by 2016, otherwise it would be too late”.

2. L writes, “It has really witnessed to me…and encouraged me because there does seem a lot of mess and, after having retired from work where my main ministry was for the last 20 years, I can now look forward to the future with the hope that Father has put in my heart with another project which I am hoping I will be part of. Also to let go of those things which have either just come to a natural conclusion or just plain need to go”.

3. T writes from Tucson, Arizona, “Some of this word sounds like the puzzle vision that the Lord gave me. It also reminds me of a vision of a house church meeting in my house where people would come in with their armor on but as they came into my home they would take it off because they felt safe”.

[‘God-incidence’ featured in my first learning about Tony’s vision, and to which I referred in re-blogging his account in When we come together…the Body of Christ, which he revisited in more detail a few months later, as may be read here.]

4. T re-blogs with further remarks in connection with a dream akin to the dry bones of Ezekiel 37. His insights harmonise with what the Glasgow team heard and he adds, “The prophetic word posted by Richard is a continuation of the dream/vision that I had concerning the Lord’s heart for His people to be in relationship with Him and each other”.

Nathan 25. Meanwhile over in Mobile, Alabama, and doubtlessly knowing nothing of our matter in hand, English evangelist Nathan Morris has returned from mission trips to the Far East and to the Baltic States of Europe. Recounting the huge, amazing events filled with with miracles signs and wonders, he says,

This is the time. God said to me that this would be the year of the Open Door.

Doors are going to close around the world that will shock the world – but at the same time God’s going to open doors in the Kingdom that have not been open for us for many years (RB emphases).

This is the time to preach the Gospel without compromise, to believe God like never before so we can step into destiny…

We’re living in the days that it’s dark but this is the greatest moment for the Church of Jesus Christ. And I want to tell you that people say, “Europe is too dark, it’s over”. I want to tell you it ain’t over – it’s only just begun.

You know, people tell you “People, the nations, don’t want o hear the Gospel”, BUT when you preach the Gospel and thousands are filling the altars you realise the devil is a liar.

And I want to tell you America SHALL be saved and when we declare the mighty acts of God the Holy Spirit backs us up!

JohnK 214_logo6. Just prior to that, in the same service on Sunday, the congregation and pastor John Kilpatrick felt and responded to the presence of Holy Spirit during worship. Very excited,  John interrupted welcoming visitors to prophesy as follows,

Just get ready, because I’m telling you God’s about to do some awesome, awesome things.

Listen, that doesn’t preclude the fact that there’s going to be a lot of hell going on in the world.

There’s going to be a roller-coaster coming in the next 90 days, a roller-coaster ride where things are going to be whizzing by you – it’s just going to be going so fast you won’t hardly have chance to assimilate it – things are going to be happening suddenly.

But I tell you what, the Kingdom of God is getting ready to come into full view – it’s getting ready to come into full view and you just need to get ready for that!

And yes, there are going to be some bad, bad things happening in the world, but I’m telling you God is NOT going to forsake His people – His Church is going to shine brighter than you’ve ever seen the Church shine. I say that the Church will shine brighter than it’s ever shone before! And you just need to get ready for that!

So, in my humble opinion both exhortations enhance this month’s word.

Exciting times!
