Canada, Great Britain, Israel, USA and The Age To Come

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

[Reminder of closing paragraph of Maxine Phyllis’ points in previous post]  So the prophetic office in USA is not automatically a good model for UK prophets to follow, IMO. Rather, UK prophets are standing first and foremost for the stuff of the New Jerusalem coming down from God, to bring correction to the Old Testament prophets on the ground. This appears to be exactly what Veronika West is doing – standing FOR the truth of what God is doing with Trump, largely despite some of the prosperity preaching, cross-rejecting prophets in USA, who have gone astray themselves and greatly compromised Trump’s spiritual path. All for your discernment.

My response:

MOST interesting and exceptional, Maxine. You’re confirming not only what I’m soon to pop into this thread but also reminding me of insights I had re the New Jerusalem and The Bride, as well as of the ‘Book beyond the Bible’s Back-cover’!

Maxine:

From where I am in my ‘pivotal’ position, it looks like the full manifestation of the war and the wedding feast in Revelation 19. The warriors will do what they need to do but there’s also a need for some to serve at the wedding supper of the Lamb. One is the fullness of the Kingdom on the ground, involving the nations receiving the government of God; the other is about standing for an unconquered Church as the Bride and WIFE of the Lamb. Who can decide? LOL. When the Husband is on the battlefield?

Just heard in the Spirit “Taking Canada for the Kingdom of God.” As in a Husband claiming His wife. Then just heard the word “WOMB” (Isaiah 66). ‘Can a nation be born in a day?’… Continue reading

Canada, Great Britain, Israel, and USA – Maxine Phyllis

One of last year’s posts on the ‘Bridge o’r the Pond’ relating to 1999’s solar eclipse and the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower included several ‘prophecy signals’ from different places on both sides of the Atlantic (Last Week’s GPS on New Church Also Included Canada & USA – GPS #51). The eighth piece came from Maxine Phyllis in Nova Scotia. 

In an exceptionally informative discussion on Facebook last week raised by Chris G Bennett’s and picked up by Chris Moyler about the unacceptability of prophecy within churches and differences between prophets here in the UK and in the USA, Maxine contributes very interesting points, especially relating to Esther and the Feast of Purim and kindly permits me to re-publish, as follows:

1st

I consider this [by Keith Powell; courtesy Ruach Ministries] as a critically important prophetic word from Britain given in 2010. The word ‘pivotal’ ties in with something the Lord has done with me as a Canadian, in which I had an open vision of His right arm coming down from heaven, from the direction of the UK, all the way down to North America. In 1996 I had this vision and heard Him speak the word “pivot”. He said He’d use ME as a pivot on which to rest His arm as I watched Him slowly pull it back until it was fully retracted. He was withdrawing the blessings of His right hand from North America. Continue reading

1st Sunday of Advent reminds us Jesus Christ is soon to return!

First Sunday in Advent

Yesterday, Sunday 29th November, not only marks the beginning of Advent but also is personally nostalgic because of the life-changing dream 31 years ago that brought a totally unexpected and radical encounter with Jesus Christ.

FIRST & SECOND ADVENTS

Note Wikipedia’s entry on Advent because I’m especially surprised its emphasis is not upon Jesus’ birth, BUT UPON HIS RETURN, viz.: Continue reading

Prophetic Watch on America and President Trump cont’d: 4 – spheres of influence and the First Horseman of the Apocalypse

In most ESSENTIAL, instructive teaching Able Praise identities demonic activity of not only America’s but also global media (including anti-Pope Francis!). It is directly related to Apostle John’s vision of the first of four horsemen of The Apocalypse being released after Jesus’ opens the first four seals of the 7-sealed scroll handed to Him by our Heavenly Father (Revelation 5). Abel writes in His Kingdom Prophecy :

AMERICA: PRESIDENCIES and SPHERES of INFLUENCE: THE MEDIA GAVE JOE BIDEN ITS THRONE

There are tremendous shifts going on in the heavens; as the saints wage war through prayers to enact the righteous Will of The LORD.

While we have our earthly perspective of leadership and how things play out on earth; we must also learn to gain heaven’s perspective; to see how the heavens are shaping the activities on earth.

Much more than the election of numbers in the earthly politics, there is the election of Thrones in the Heavens; and every significant political office holder rules through a Spiritual Throne that defines the sphere of their influence in the earth — and the things they have limit and permission to do.

How to Look for Signs of Jesus Christ’s Return

Whilst singing the Noel Richards’ chorus “Come Lord Jesus” in a meeting, my wife was noticeably touched by the Holy Spirit and heard, “It’s sooner than you think!”. I submit, therefore, the importance of revisiting this blog’s strap-line ‘Looking for signs of Jesus’ return‘ and of being sure we really do know ‘how to look’ for Jesus’ Second Coming.

Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? – part 1

This topic is rarely covered because I despise the enemy of our souls and its demonic influences. Hence, my not blogging on this for 5 years 5 months since the mini-series that began with musing upon a devilish plot to avoid the Lake of Fire. Now, another inkling dropped into mind last week and which I submitted to a few friends for weighing. I was surprised, therefore, to receive unexpected confirmation from other sources in UK, USA and New Zealand (reader Alex’s comment), as posted on Saturday.

Therefore, this isn’t for Britain alone, as I’d thought, but is globally relevant too. So let me expand upon the brief outline given in my personal appeal; Wake Up Church! 

NB: In all this please note I’m NOT saying or implying any of the Prime Minister’s or government’s decisions are directed by the demonic; only that they may be to satan’s advantage and thus benefit its ultimate agenda. 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father I ask you to protect each one of my brethren in Jesus Christ reading this by His holy sinless blood; also that access rights the demonic may have are thus rendered null and void. (I’d prepared this for publication a few days ago but awoke with excruciating hip pain on Tuesday that necessitates resting. A prophetical pastor who’s praying for me confirmed my suspicion of it being a demonic attack.)

MASK / MARK OF THE BEAST

Trying to return to sleep after waking early on Saturday 18th July I was suddenly struck by: ‘WE’RE ONLY 1 LETTER AWAY FROM THE MARK OF THE BEAST – WAKE UP CHURCH!’ (maSk…maRk)

That is, we need to realise that compulsory wearing of masks in public is a trial-run, or testing, the progress and outcome of which will inform and lead into the imposition of the infamous Mark of the Beast. It is a softening up and preparing the global population for such an eventuality, as foretold in the Book of Revelation. Therefore, it is increasingly important for Christian leaders to teach about being prepared for the End-Times.

Click to read ScriptureForAll Hebrew Interlinear Bible

[‘He – the Beast from the Sea – causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’ NKJV Rev 13:16-17]

Upon recalling the gist of Revelation chapter 13, it dawned upon me we’re not only ‘one letter’ but also ‘one inch’ away from carrying the full marking, or ‘carved-effect’ (original Greek). The new legal requirement from last Friday imposes a mandatory restriction upon anyone wanting to go shopping and buy anything that focuses not only upon a person’s mask, thereby highlighting their forehead and eyes – its edge being on the bridge of their nose, is an inch below the forehead – but also upon waving a hand in order to buy without handing over cash or cheque, or tapping one’s own private code.

Note two salient points:
  • This Jewish year 5780 is that of Hebrew letter ‘pey’, symbolising the ‘mouth’ and its method of communicating: eg in praise and worship the Lord.
  • the spirit that works in the ‘sons of disobedience’ is also ‘prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2).

Hence, the significance of events focusing upon the effects of everyone’s breathing!!!! AND the poison spewed out in mainstream media headlines and opinions that curses the nation!

Next, it occurred to me this is the 7th instance of this topic cropping up recently through unconnected events.

And they appeared as two lots of triplets!  The first 3 centered on a Friday, as told in End-Times Briefing 13; the second 3 arrived on a Monday (government’s muddle, data from White House author, top Hong Kong lab’s whistle-blower). Moreover, I came under a Jezebelic attack, which the Lord countered by more data. You may recall this blog gives copious examples of ‘invisible jigsaw pieces’ arriving like ‘GPS’ (global prophecy signals). The two confirmations mentioned above are the latest example.

Theological Perspectives

I ask that we lay aside any personal, doctrinal preferences when reading Revelation because there’s EIGHT theological interpretations of this profound book, as summarised in my study Bible. Let’s not, therefore, be too dogmatic in assessing my remarks. In my humble opinion, the Lord may permit the imprecision in order to ‘play His cards close to His chest’, keeping the adversary in the dark.  Therefore, if we adhere to a dogmatic ‘timetable’ then satan’s strategy could blindside us by imposing the Mark by nefarious means and catch us in its snare unawares.

Our adversary would want to prevent any possibility of a global Revival and harvesting of souls by getting peoples’ unwitting allegiance to its schemes and thus consequential damnation!  Heaven’s reaping would rob hell of its harvest of humans!!

With reference to my recent Briefings, Jane H asks: “Regarding the mark of the beast surely this will not proceed revival will it?  How can we spread the gospel to anyone having the mark?”

Clearly, Jane has Rev 14:9-11 in mind and which clearly implies those with this Mark are owned by satan, and thus share in its decreed doom. These dread scriptures foretell no possibility of changing allegiance away from satan in this event. However, it may be possible for those who didn’t take the Mark to be saved during an individual’s ‘revival’.

Some may argue the Mark of the Beast won’t apply to the Church because we will have been raptured into heaven (‘snatched up’ – 1 Thess 4:17) before its introduction: ie. the Mark is imposed during the 7-year Great Tribulation. I find, however, scripture does not unequivocally support that view – for example:

  • Rev 12:17 – And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
  • Rev 13:7 – It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.
  • Rev 14:12 – Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on’,”
  • Rev 15:2 – And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

Dr David Pawson’s Opinion

In his overview of the epic story of God’s relationship with His people,  world-renowned Bible teacher David Pawson ‘unlocks’ The Apocalypse in 200 pages distilled from a ‘lifetime’s worth of insights’.:

Chapters 6-16…’are relevant to all believers, whatever their contemporary situation…The main motive for preparing to be faithful under pressure is to be able to face Him without shame. Perhaps that explains the reminder inserted between the 6th and 7th bowls of wrath (incidentally, confirming some Christians will still be on earth at the time): “Behold I come like a thief!…” (Rev 16:15…)

An Informed Reaction:

One reviewer’s response:

“The LORD has set you as a voice, to blow the trumpet and get The WORD out. Absolutely; we are seeing the governmental systems and structure of the beast trying to shape out in a more vicious form in the earth. Many political leaders of nations do not know what they stand against; some decisions that they implement are not theirs; if the grounds are lost in the spirit by The Church and the enemy gains a right to impose a sentence; the governments over nations can wield little or no power of resistance. We must realize that when we also pray and gain victories in the spirit; the leadership of nations will have the power to resist the already established victories in heaven. Things are shaping out; the direction of the dance moves that policies reflect shows us what grounds must be contended for to be regained in the spirit. The antichrist is more than a person taking up an office; it’s major stronghold will be the system it sets up; rather than who becomes the figurehead”

End-Times Briefing 12: an overview of the Book of Revelation

Briefing 11’s Introduction to the Book of Revelation draws to a close by its author, Neil Mackereth, stating “Apocalyptic works seek to inform the reader about aspects of an End-Times drama. The grand climax of the Bible is imminent — that is to say, it could happen at any moment…”  He reminds us, “The Bible explains that two absolute powers or principles operate in the universe…In the book of Revelation (and the whole Bible), God himself is the ultimate source of all that is good; Satan and his followers refuse to submit to God and are the ultimate source of evil. This ethical dichotomy underlies the conflict within the book of Revelation”.:

OVERVIEW OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION

The Prologue provides essential information for understanding the meaning and structure of the Book of Revelation. “The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place; he made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw.” (Rev. 1:1–2).

Apostle John conveys to his first-century readers the unveiling of Jesus. It’s something like the showing of a video of a Monarch and his court. The Book of Revelation is written for Christians who understand the language of a faith unique to Christian experience. But given the complexity of the metaphors and images, even “insiders” have difficulty understanding Revelation. However, anyone can grasp the basic message: Jesus is going to return to earth, overthrow Satan’s evil empire, reward his faithful followers, punish those who reject his Lordship, and create a new heaven and a new earth.

End-Times Briefing 11: an intro’ to the Book of Revelation

It’s now time to expand upon Briefing 3’s listing of Signs from the Gospel accounts and Paul’s letters by considering ‘The Apocalypse’, as in the annexures to Neil Mackereth’s paper dated 21st May: Simplicity.  First, recall Apostle John’s opening remarks on its awesome origin, along with benediction (Young’s Literal Translation – in Greek here):

A revelation of Jesus Christ, that God gave to him, to shew to his servants what things it behoveth to come to pass quickly; and he did signify [it], having sent through his messenger to his servant John, who did testify the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, as many things also as he did see. Happy is he who is reading, and those hearing, the words of the prophecy, and keeping the things written in it — for the time is nigh!

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK OF REVELATION

The challenge in introducing Revelation to a new audience, or to infrequent readers of the book, is twofold: how do we make sense of this strange book; and how do we overcome longstanding antipathy to it, which, unfortunately, is often reinforced by those who should be explaining its message. I want to describe what apocalyptic literature is and to provide a basic overview of what Revelation is about.

The Bible, at its opening, quickly moves to the fall of man and the success of Satan. Then follows God’s sovereign selection of His chosen people Israel, the story of their triumphs, failures, trials and tribulations up to the first coming of Christ.  The New Testament describes Jesus’ life and role as Redeemer King, His death, resurrection and ascension to heaven.  At the close of the Bible, Jesus returns, Satan is overthrown and his followers are defeated.  Without the Book of Revelation, the story would be incomplete.

First, I believe it is essential to consider what the writer’s mindset might have been, if we are to have any hope of untangling and understanding the book’s mysteries. Continue reading

End-Times Briefing 10 cont’d: key signs and prophecies

We continue Annex A to Simplicity and examine some items in earlier Briefings:

KEY END-TIME (or SECOND ADVENT) SIGNS and PROPHECIES

An awareness of End-Time signs will help us to see if any world events, as they unfold in the weeks, months and years ahead, can honestly be described as fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Analysis of world events in relation to prophecy requires care and integrity, both to ensure genuine spiritual significance, and to avoid “false news”, conspiracy theories and the pronouncements of false prophets. It will be exceedingly hard to convince a sceptical world that prophecy is being fulfilled!

Some prophecies in the Bible seem particularly significant, in light of current world events, especially in the Middle-East. The following prophecies are worth bearing in mind, especially by those who are intentional about marrying historic prophecies with contemporary occurrences. They are, in short, signs of the End-Times: Continue reading

The depth of the five scripture passages of the 2nd Signpost — Mark Davidson

After learning about a ‘chiasmus’ in the Book of Jonah during Sunday’s service, it’s note-worthy how Mark Davidson explains this literary-spiritual device within certain prophetic passages on current events in the Middle-East…

While we are waiting for the next significant news item from Iran and the Middle East, it seemed good to have a review of the Scripture passages all having a say in the Second Signpost. This is meant to remind us that the Second Signpost, the invasion by Iran of the Middle East, is more […]

Bible Update: Red flag flies over Mahdi’s mosque: Apocalypse’s 2nd horseman may now have its sword!

ESSENTIAL READING: Mark Davidson brings what may be the most important insight you may read on the immediate aftermath of America taking decisive, defensive action against a regime that is actually hell-bent on bringing about the End of the World, as covered here on Richard’s Watch in many postings under the Mahdi tag.

It’s absolutely imperative ALL Christians – especially those in leadership – know about the eschatalogical impulse behind the Iranians engineering such a conflict in order to bring about the return of Shi’ite Islam’s 12th ‘hidden imam’, followed en-train by Jesus!!

For a fuller grasp of this dangerous doctrine browse through the above tag, starting with my blog of nearly 7 years ago Iranian Leader’s End-Times Declaration.

I never thought I would be writing an article like this, for I had never thought one single event could equate to the second horseman being made ready to make men slay one another. There are reports from Twitter and, at this point, only British tabloids such as the Express, Metro, and Sun, that something […]

A prophetic word on the coming ‘bowls of the fury of God’

Now that Facebook can at last connect this blog’s Fb page with my previously unused personal profile, I’ve been pinning a few of its posts and hubs to its ‘wall’ or timeline by way of an intro’ to my writing upon Biblical and contemporary Christian prophecy.

Doing that reminded me of the difference between ancient and modern prophecy, which after due weighing and testing, provides a means of hearing from God before we arrive at the End-times foretold in scripture. Therefore, I mused upon when and how those two modes of hearing Him will converge in the run-up to the Millennium, when Jesus Christ returns bodily to reign and rule on earth. 

AND “Lo and Behold!” within a couple of days I get an email on that subject, as in preparing for things to come, which reads as follows: Continue reading

The Coming Davidic Messiah

This summation of the who, what and why of the up-coming Millennium is a valuable reminder of our goal as active Christians. Also, knowledge of the Kingdom as our inheritance is fundamental because our spiritual opponents claim ignorance of that fact dis-empowers believers (see Christian Inheritance & End-times Church for source.)

All Along the Watchtower

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

-Revelation 3:21

The Kingdom is woven into all the teachings of Christ. He taught us to pray, “Thy Kingdom come”. He taught that our good deeds on earth are seen by our Father in Heaven, and that He will reward us in the resurrection. He taught that His Kingdom is not of this world, and that this world is in darkness. Christ’s moral teaching is so sublime as to be unattainable by the flesh: it is the power of the Spirit, who is given to us as an earnest of the Kingdom, that makes us able to live as Christ did.

In our suffering, the resurrection is our comfort. The Kingdom is what we are striving for: even as we wait…

7 years ago today: the Key To Foretelling The Future

Now, dear reader, let’s turn the dials in our imaginary time machine again. Set your watch back yet another 700-odd years – and discover how we can go forward from there!

This takes us to the time ancient Rome was founded and the first Olympic Games got under way in ancient  Greece.  Also, Assyria was poised to conquer the Middle East and become a mighty regional power.

A Hebrew prophet and student of geopolitics, Isaiah, could see conflict approaching and, sure enough, the northern kingdom of Israel, Samaria, fell to Assyria in 721BC. A couple of decades earlier, Isaiah had a profound vision of the glory of The Holy Lord of Heavenly Hosts within His temple (see 6th chapter of The Book of Isaiah).

Update on End-times’ cashless society (Rev 13:16-18’s Mark of the Beast)

Noticed on this weekend’s World Watch Daily homepage display (the other headline on US Supreme Justice Kavanaugh is noteworthy too!):

Click image for direct link to Fox News article

It reminds me of the prophecy at Revelation 13:16-18 on the activity of the ‘Beast from the Earth’:

‘He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has [g]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.’

Also, reminds me what internationally renowned Australian Barry R Smith taught on the emerging technology soon to introduce a cashless society and ‘Pay & Go’, as read over 20 years ago in ‘…better than Nostradamus’ and ‘The Devil’s Jigsaw’!

Brexit-EU battles follow Bible history and prophecy – 1: ‘spirit of Herod’ exposed in politics

It’s important not to loose sight of the fuller insights afforded by two related words from the Lord received during Trooping the Colour; one in 2016 only days before the EU-Referendum, the other this year just before Parliament voted on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill.

Troops parading along The Mall on return to barracks after the Trooping the Colour ceremony in Horse Guards Parade (photo BBC iplayer)

Having appeared ‘out-of-the-blue’ in our own house, the first word (“This is My country”) enabled me to recognise the authenticity of the extensive one Veronika West received . Both words bring news of Father’s heart for Great Britain, thereby confirming we’re in His awesome plan.

However, there’s one aspect of that second word we’ve yet to consider, AND it links the European Union, our government and the church to Bible history and prophecy – even bringing a fresh insight to eschatological theory.

Also, I submit that it accounts for the deep, persistently anti-democratic stance of EU-Remainers.

This year’s word came on 9th June and Veronika posted video-cum-notes entitled, A Divine Convergence, a Trooping of the Colours, the (Fox) Spirit of Herod over the Land, of which I quote extracts below and underline points for consideration:

She was told, “Daughter Look and See for the Spirit of Herod seeks to destroy and annihilate the Vision and Destiny of this Nation, WATCH AND PRAY! for this cunning, crafty and treacherous Spirit is now operating over the Government and the Church in this Nation”! …

…He then likened the Houses of Parliament to a HEN HOUSE and said, “Just as a fox comes to the hen house under the cover of darkness to scatter, to steal, to kill and to destroy, so the fox has come to the Houses of Parliament in this Nation”.

The Holy Spirit quickened her to read Luke 13:31-32 where Jesus referred to Herod as ‘”that fox” and she explains, “Now as I read that verse, I inquired again from the Holy Spirit what He was showing me and He revealed to me that the ‘Fox’ was prophetically symbolic of the Spirit of Herod that is now operating over the Nation. The Spirit of Herod comes with the purpose and goal of total destruction and annihilation, this cunning and dangerous spirit comes at a time when a people, nation or individual is about to reach full maturity, growth, purpose and Destiny. The Spirit of Herod hates anything good or godly, this treacherous spirit seeks only to kill and destroy destinies that are on the verge of blooming.

‘As I continued praying, I began to see a powerful prophetic parallel unfolding before (me) concerning the Nation and BREXIT. I clearly began to see how this same Spirit of Herod which came against the Destiny of Jesus, John the Baptist, Elijah (operating through Jezebel), Moses and Joseph is now operating over our Government and over the Church in the Nation. This Spirit of Herod is Warring against the people of God in this Nation, and this Treacherous Spirit is contending for the Birthright and Destiny of Great Britain. (This Spirit of Herod is a GREAT THREAT TO THE NATION AT THIS TIME)!”

Drawing her to a close, Holy Spirit repeated but in more detail:

“Daughter just as the fox was seen on parade square in the light of day, out in the open for everyone to see, Watch! as My Spirit of Truth and Righteousness moves to uncover, expose and bring to light the works of wickedness and witchcraft in the land, and Watch! For those who have dishonoured Me and who have turned away and rebelled against My plans and purposes in the Nation, I will cause them to be stripped naked and paraded out in the open before all men, FOR NO LONGER WILL MY JUSTICE AND VINDICATION TARRY IN THIS NATION”!

So, this word reveals that this ‘spirit of Herod’ exhibits a dual-aspect of “operating over the Government and the Church”. In my opinion, it may possibly be identified with one of the satanic ‘trinity’ known in deliverance ministry as the Spirit of Jezebel.

OVER THE GOVERNMENT:

We observed the political aspect of this prophecy start to manifest within days. It was publicly exposed by the Daily Mail (see Today’s Press Scoop Exposes Anti-Brexit Schemers) followed later by The Telegraph’s summary, ‘An Often Baffling Episode in The Brexit Story’. Meanwhile, my scripture trail on the parliamentary plotting brought a surprising insight, which soon got confirmed. The skullduggery continued across the political spectrum and a month later a video summary unwittingly captured the above prophecy’s specific aspect: Mogg ‘Outfoxed’ Remainers To Save Brexit.

Those blogs considered evidence of a ‘spirit of Herod’ operating through people in, or directly connected with, Government. In part 2 we’ll consider its modus operandi within the Church.

Prophetic Parallel

First, however, let’s unpack the “powerful prophetical parallel” Veronika saw between that spirit’s working against the destiny of Old Testament prophets, Jesus’ birth and life and today’s intense, prolonged battles over Britain’s destiny and our leaving the EU.

As in biblical times, this spirit of Herod’s mission would be to constrict any nation that has a holy history in God’s purposes into becoming a vassal state of the ungodly (even satanically directed) modern Roman Empire, and thus stop it moving into its destiny!

Herod ‘the Great’ was ancient Rome’s puppet ruler of its province of Judea and the Jewish people, plus Galilee, Samaria, Idumea, Peraea and territories north-eastward. As recorded in Luke’s historically detailed Gospel, this Herod treacherously told the eastern magi who were searching for new-born Jesus that he wanted to visit and worship the child born to be king of the Jews. But instead, he directed the ruthless massacre of boys under the age of two years! (His sons Herod Antipas inherited Galilee and Archelaus, Judea, but after the latter’s banishment through incompetence in 6 AD it came under the direct control of a procurator responsible to Rome (eg. Pilate).

Therefore, we notice the spirit of Herod’s mission in our day is once again on behalf of a man-made empire founded upon and growing out of the Treaty of Rome (1957) that’s now a large, united federation of European nations, thereby re-establishing a ‘Revived Roman Empire’; as may have been foretold in the Bible’s closing book at Revelation 13:3 (see Footnotes).

That insight enables us to understand the intensely vociferous anti-democracy aim of EU-Remainers, and the dishonesty, betrayal and treachery working within government but now exposed by Prime Minister May’s Chequers Agreement, plus its political fall-out in which many claim this would leave Britain as a vassal state of the EU!!

Moreover whilst I mull it over, Herod started building the magnificent Second Temple in Jerusalem in 19 BC but it wasn’t completed until 64 AD – six years before the Romans destroyed it. That wasn’t so much because the Jews rebelled against Rome, but more from Jesus’ prophetically weeping over the city, because they “did not know the time of your visitation!” (Luke 19:41-44).

Therefore, in considering prophetic parallels, is it fanciful to think that, as the European Economic Community and its subsequent governmental beast, the European Union and its parliament’s modern Tower of Babel, are ruled over by the spirit of Herod then it, too, could follow the destiny of his earlier achievement? That the EU too will fail and fall; be dismantled and destroyed with little left to mark its earlier existence??

I close with realising this is the second ‘scriptural trail’ that’s led to ‘the fall of Babylon’ reference. (The first followed a scriptural remark by Jacob Rees-Mogg MP indirectly related to ‘the fox’, as told here and confirmed later.)

Also, we again note that Bible prophecy and contemporary prophetic word, albeit a different one received November 2015 (here), firmly predict the EU’s eventual fall.

Footnotes:
  • Evangelical theologian John F Walwoord’s The Revelation of Jesus Christ – ‘The Deadly Wound of the Beast’: ’13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.’ John in his vision sees one of the heads of the beast as wounded unto death, and the apparent parallelism is to the slain Lamb, described in 5:6. John further observes that the deadly wound (literally “plague”) is healed and that the entire earth marvels at the beast…The wounding of one of the heads seems instead to be a reference to the fact that the Roman Empire as such seemingly died and is now going to be revived. It is significant that one of the heads is wounded to death but that the beast itself is not said to be dead…The beast is both personal and the empire itself; so also is the head. The revival of the future empire is considered a miracle and a demonstration of the power of Satan.’
  • There’s some debate among scholars as to whether or not this passage, relating as it does to the vision of the fourth beast described in Daniel chapter 7, refers to an empire, nation or to an individual, eg. the Antichrist (per Dr A. Fruchtenbaum).

Scriptural meditation on Parliamentary plotting

“The Prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream.

“And he who has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully.

“What is the chaff to the wheat, ?” says the Lord.

“Is not My Word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:28-29)

You have exalted above all things Your Name and Your Word. (Psalm 138:2 NRSV – Revd Wes Sutton @ Acorn)

Dear reader, My personal preference, as announced some years ago, is to be apolitical in the national political debate because the Kingdom of God has overarching priority. My purpose, therefore, whenever covering politics is to inform you of a possible Kingdom perspective upon issues which affect our nation.

There may be at least one British parliamentarian who’s either spiritually discerning, or else acutely astute in his perception of the non-physical nature of the forces behind the anti-democratic attempts to prevent Britain leaving the EU. It is the ‘Right Honourable’ Member of Parliament Jacob Rees-Mogg – and it may apply to the highly respected Labour Frank Field too. He demands the abolition of the House of Lords (or “cave dwellers” as JRM describes them) if they betray voters over Brexit!

Later, we’ll consider how his remarks and criticisms relating to events fit in with, and even open up, the Word of God…First a quick recap:

THE ‘FOX’ PROPHETIC WORD

You may recall what Veronika West says the Lord revealed to her during the Trooping the Colour ceremony when all present and those watching around the world saw a fox brazenly run onto Horse Guards’ Parade and prance around before leaving. Veronika received an instruction on the deeply symbolic meaning of that minor incident. It relates to treachery behind the scenes that will be publicly exposed. In fact, it poses a great threat to our nation in these times:
“Daughter look and see for the Spirit of Herod seeks to destroy and annihilate the Vision and Destiny of this Nation, WATCH AND PRAY! for this cunning, crafty and treacherous Spirit is now operating over the Government and the Church in this Nation”! (Read in full here.)

Within days, the prophetic action and its meaning was repeated and became apparent to the nation soon after the Daily Mail’s scoop exposing the leader of the pro-Remain Tory rebels visiting the European Commission’s London offices and meeting several anti-Brexit plotters there. Later, after having published that item I skimmed TV channels as I was about switch off and retire for the evening. In doing so I caught the late-night discussion programme Question Time, which I never take time to follow, and heard an exceptionally interesting rebuke from author/journalist Isabel Oakeshott to the person whom one may easily assume could take that role of ‘fox’; Dominic Grieve MP.

And so I resolved to catch up with QT on iPlayer as soon as possible. I took delight in hearing Isabel politely saying after he’d droned on for four minutes, “The problem is, Dominic, people don’t trust you!” Follow her justifiable reasons and accurate criticisms from the video’s 5:00 mark by clicking on this image:

THE SCRIPTURAL SLANT

The first clue to the direct application of the Word of God as a ‘hammer’ lies in leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg’s reaction to his fellow MP’s action in meeting the anti-democrats (Fulfilled Prophecy #30):

If you sup with the devil you should use a long spoon, and he is using an egg spoon.”

We’ll soon see where this may take us.

Question Time was Thursday evening and the next morning saw Charles Moore’s op-ed in the Daily Telegraph. In closing his incisive analysis Remain zealots forget democracy in Britain is all about meaningful votes, Charles warns (emphasis mine):

“I am not sorry, though, that the phrase “meaningful vote” now bulks so large. It is at the heart of the whole, long argument about our membership of the EU. Over centuries, Britain achieved a parliamentary system based on the idea that people’s votes, and the votes of the people they voted for, were meaningful. Then it gave half of this away to Europe. By voting Leave, we insisted that our votes must recover their meaning. If that vote is now rendered meaningless, we shall lose faith in voting itself. Then there will be Hell to pay”.

Then on Monday came the big government defeat by the House of Lords for Parliament to get a “meaningful vote” in having a say in Brexit negotiations – thus tying PM Theresa May’s hands in negotiating with Brussels. Jacob Rees’-Mogg reacted that ‘meaningful vote’ was being used to “obstruct Brexit” and “thwart the Referendum result”!

STOP PRESS>> BBC News Live: ‘Theresa May wins ‘meaningful vote’ battle., which means Grieve’s group surrendered and their rebellion is over! He threw in the towel on hearing fresh assurances on Parliament’s sovereignty and rights being put in the hands of a man with highly questionable reputation, the Speaker of the House of Commons!!

So the Commons voted to ignore the peers and bishops larger majority against the EU Withdrawal Bill. Liam Fox, International trade secretary, told BBC the option of a no-deal Brexit had been left firmly on the table: “There is no change to the fundamental issue here which is the government cannot be forced by Parliament to negotiate something which it does not want to do.”

THE WORD OF GOD LEADS

Mulling over Jacob’s reference to supping with satan I checked the scriptures and my Bible’s cross-references led to a highly apposite conclusion in The Apocalypse, which opens: ‘The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants – things which must shortly take place’...!!

Here’s that scripture trail (courtesy BibleGateway.com) with its most apposite subheads and I leave you to weigh and contemplate with the Lord:

  • 1 Cor 10 [Flee from Idolatry] 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He? : x-refc leads to:
  • 2 Cor 6 [Be Holy] 14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”: x-refc to:
  • Rev 18 [The Fall of Babylon the Great4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities….” 

Thus, the Jacob Rees-Hogg’s scriptural allusion leads directly to that of the climax of the whole Bible, the downfall of the scarlet woman of ‘Babylon’ and the demonic beast, over which heaven is full of exultation. Then Christ and His army defeat and capture the beast and false prophet and bind satan for 1,000 years during the rule of Jesus with His saints.

Note also, those verses of Rev 18 are powerfully echoed in the warning David Noakes brought from the Lord urging Britain to come out of the EU – for updates see  Fulfilled Prophecy #13.

BABYLON IN EUROPE

Over the past few decades many evangelical and dispensational theologians taught that modern Europe in the form of the Treaty of Rome and European Union are one and the same as the prophesied ‘revived Roman Empire’ and ‘Babylon’. To the early Christians, Rome was Babylon. In the NT Babylon is symbolic of sinful humanity and our capacity of self-delusion, sinful pride, ambition and demonised depravity – thus, a world culture in rebellion against God. The dispensational interpretation of prophecy says Babylon in Revelation 18 represents the satanic world system in its godless industrial, economical commercialization in contrast to Rev 17 where apostate religious forces are represented.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the European Parliament was designed with the Tower of Babel in mind – as many critics of the EU have noted and as stated in the early posts on this blog covering the issue of getting out of the Union.

Urgent prophetic dreams for the hour – Veronika West

An exceptionally important message published Saturday on Veronika’s Facebook on a few passages I’d been mulling over in connection with a ministry issue, and blogging. It also relates to previous posts about the manifestation of wheat and tares parable and sifting of the Church (emphases mine):

AN URGENT PROPHETIC DREAMS….FOR THE HOUR..!

“WATCH! FOR 11TH HOUR PROPHETS CARRYING THE MANDATE OF DIVINE DESTRUCTION UNTO RESTORATION WILL BEGIN TO ARISE OVER THE NEXT 3 YEARS..LISTEN, TAKE HEED FOR THEIR MOUTHS WILL BE FILLED WITH THE MESSAGE OF ‘REPENT, RETURN OR HE WILL COME QUICKLY TO REMOVE YOUR LAMPSTAND”.

10 days ago I had two very powerful and poignant dreams that I want to share with you. I believe that the dreams are prophetically significant for both the Church and for the emerging Prophets for the hour.

1st DREAM
I found myself standing in front of what looked like an ancient door, and written upon the mantle of the door was the word “REVELATION”! As I stepped towards the door in the dream suddenly an Angel appeared to me and he spoke to me saying, “Come and I will show you what will begin to take place over the next 3 years, for the Time is NOW”.

Then the Angel took me by the hand and lead me through the door of “Revelation”, now as soon as my foot crossed over the threshold it was as if I was standing in the ‘BOOK OF REVELATION’. Then the Angel spoke again saying, “What do you see”, to which I replied, “I see a tree that is in full bloom, and its leaves are lush and green”, then the Angel answered me saying, “Daughter of Man, it is a fig tree”! Then I looked again and suddenly I saw 7 golden lampstands and 7 bright shining stars. Then the Angel said, “Tell me what do you see?”, to which I replied, “I see 7 golden lampstands and 7 bright shining stars”, suddenly in a moment the dream shifted and I found myself standing in front of a very large, well known Church in the Nation of America. Then I heard the Angel speak again saying, “What do you see”, and I replied, “I see a golden lampstand and a bright shining star”, then suddenly the Angel stepped forward and dropped a plumb-line, then he spoke with a voice of great Authority that made the ground beneath my feet shake and tremble, and he said these words, “WATCH! FOR THE HAND OF THE LORD NOW PUTS FORTH A PLUMBLINE IN THE MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE”! Then suddenly the dream shifted and I found myself standing once again in front of the fig tree and I heard these words echo in the realm of the Spirit, “CURSED ARE THEIR ROOTS FOR THEY HAVE BEEN FOUND BEARING NO FRUITS”! As the words went forth I watched as the fig tree withered and died….!

Immediately the Angel spoke to me saying ”Come!”, and suddenly I found myself standing as I did before in front of another large and well known Church in the United Kingdom. As I stood watching in the dream, again I saw the Angel put forth his hand and drop a plumbline. Then the Angel took me by the hand and he showed me 3 other Churches, first I was shown a large Church in Asia, then I was shown a Church in Europe and lastly I was shown another large and well known Church in the Nation of Australia. Now when I was taken to the Nation of Australia I saw the Angel drop a plumbline as he had done in all the other Nations but this time, I watched as he put his hand through the walls of the Church and he removed the lamp stand from its place, then I heard these words,

“HAVE I NOT SAID, I WILL COME QUICKLY TO REMOVE YOUR LAMPSTAND FROM ITS PLACE UNLESS YOU REPENT”!

(The Dream Ended)

2 Nights Later I had a 2nd DREAM…!
Again I found myself standing in the ‘BOOK OF REVELATION’ where the Angel of the Lord appeared to me saying, “Daughter of Man, What do you see”, to which I replied, “I see a tree as I did before”, and the Angel answered me saying, “BEHOLD THE TREE OF JESSE NOWS COMES FORTH”, then the Angel told me to put out my hand and as I obeyed suddenly a branch grew out from the roots of the tree, and the Angel said to me, “FEAR NOT! TAKE HOLD OF IT”, as I opened my hand and took hold of the branch suddenly my hand took on the appearance of the branch, now as looked at my hand again the Angel spoke with a loud voice saying, “WATCH! FOR THE PROPHETS OF YESHUA WILL BECOME A ROD OF DESTRUCTION IN THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD, AND THE WORDS OF THEIR MOUTHS WILL STRIKE THE EARTH, AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD SHALL REST UPON THEM, THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING, THE SPIRIT OF COUNSEL AND MIGHT, THE SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD”!

Then suddenly the Angel turned his face and a heavy mantle fell upon my shoulders and then I heard these words go forth across the Nations of the Earth, “GET READY, FOR NOW IS THE TIME OF DIVINE RETRIBUTION, RESTORATION AND REFORMATION IN THE EARTH”!

Then again the dream suddenly shifted and I was now standing high above the Earth and I watched as the Angel of the Lord began to unravel what looked like an ancient scroll and written in gold I saw these words, “BEHOLD, THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION”! (The Dream Ended).
