GPS#11 part 2: God has great plans for Britain

This word delivered by Leisa Ebere and transcribed by Carolyn Stewart is one of several received over the cusp of January-February, and like all others is to be weighed and discerned with the Lord. Leisa writes:

‘The Lord gave me this Powerful Word at the Apostolic Symposium which was recently conducted by the Prophetic and Apostolic Alliance on 29/01/18. We had a large group of ministers that attended the symposium event from varying churches and ministries, all hungry for the Move of God’s Spirit.  I believe the Lord wants this Word further released to the Body of Christ as He is commissioning his Body of Believers for the next Great Move of His Spirit upon the Earth!  To God be the Glory.’

The Lord would say,

“Behold, behold the word of the Lord. For surely I am stirring up in this hour strange and unusual things to confound the wise.”  And the Lord says, “There is a great wind stirring across this nation, for I have plans for it,” says the Lord.  “I have great plans for it,” says the Lord. “Where the enemy sought to entrap it in the enemy’s scheme and cause it to be defiled I will not allow that to happen, my people.  For there is a remnant being raised up and I am drawing them out of the cave,” says God. “And my pastors are beleaguered. My pastors are weary,” says God, “and I am raising up an apostolic and prophetic generation,” says God; “a mighty company to break down the strongholds of the enemy and I tell you they shall prevail – they shall prevail,” says the Lord. “As the mighty foundations of my shaking rocks this nation you shall see the righteous placed in high places of government. You shall see the House of Windsor come to salvation,” says God. “You shall see such a mighty stirring that no human eyes have ever seen before,” says God. “And from the launching of the stirring of my Spirit I say to you there will be a great launching of my Spirit across the countries of this earth,” says God. “Be thou comforted this day as you walk in unity and you rise to the calling of the foundations of my apostles and prophets. Then surely I will perform my will,” says God. “I have been waiting, I have been waiting for you, my children. Arise and accept the commission I have set before you. For surely the way will not be easy, but the Spirit of God will go before you,” says God, “and I will strengthen your hands and I will open the ‘Red Sea’ and I shall cause you to possess the land,” says God. “Be thou comforted this day, for surely the hand of the Lord is upon you in your obedience,” says God.

John Kilpatrick: 21 powerful prophetic words for 2018

‘This is a Year of Divine Interruptions’ and ‘Final Word’, respectively the opening and closing of twenty-one words delivered Friday 19th January deal with the global scene specifically. We heard these words after I’d finished drafting the previous post on my insights gained a fortnight ago on Zecharia 2.

Revd John Kilpatrick brings what the Lord told him after waking him on 23rd December 2017 and four minutes into this message he refers to the issues over Jerusalem and Israel that I’ve blogged about.

Zecharia 2:8-9 as root of Europe’s migrant crisis and of UK’s ‘Brexit’

For thus said the Lord of Hosts, after [His] glory had sent me [His messenger] to the nations who plundered you – for he who touches you touches the apple or pupil of His eye: (9) “Behold I will swing my hand over them and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me. Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you”, says the Lord. (Zecharia 2:8-9 Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

I humbly submit that the above verses about defending Jerusalem may be relevant to the unending influx of millions of Muslim refugees into Europe, as well as to Britain’s leaving the European Union – even to the EU’s grossly hypocritical failure to apply an international law!

Could this be the real reason behind our getting out of the EU?

AN INSIGHT UPON SCRIPTURE

When using the above verses to open the first part of this Zecharia 2 Update (on EU Supports Palestine Against Israel) I was going to refer to the original Hebrew. However, the website wouldn’t open and so I opened my NKJV Study Bible but got nudged for some reason to grab the classic edition of the Amplified Bible from my bookshelf.  During the course of drawing attention to European hostility towards Israel, I noticed this Bible’s verse 9 hints at a very subtle nuance: one that may explain the consequences upon Europe of the EU’s policy!

Chapter 2 covers the third vision prophet Zecharia received, which is of the measuring and rebuilding of Jerusalem and of the Temple. Although set in the decline of the Babylonian Empire it foreshadows the eschatalogical New Jerusalem. YET I WAS STRUCK THAT IT MAY APPLY TODAY TOO!

Historically, verse 9 describes the Lord’s retribution upon the Babylonians, yet it could also promise that happening any time in the future. BUT AHA! – it’s already been happening!!  That is, the consequences of EU hostility are already ongoing, or have been so for at least the past couple of years in the massive migration of refugees into Europe!

My quick reading of that short text led me to colour it to distinguish between what I thought is the writer’s narrative (v.8) and the Lord’s words (v.9), but later I learned that translation of v.8 is difficult. The New Bible Commentary’s opinion is ‘The speaker is the Messiah, who is sent to the Jews, to whom pertains the glory (cf Rom 9:4) to be their Protector…(repetition of) ‘sent me’ emphasises the importance of the commission…to protect His own from all hostile powers that menace this precious possession. Others, however, think that the pronoun refers to the enemies of Israel and means that they endanger their own safety by hostility towards the elect (emphases mine).

In fact, both option could now be in play: ie. not only to protect His own from all hostile powers menacing His people but also to act specifically against them!

Historically, the colonial empires of Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Holland had taken control of lands across Africa, Asia and the Middle-East and used their populations as a source of labour, servants and military personnel.

Verse 9 clearly implies that such servants of European colonial empires will come and ‘plunder’ those empires, either there or back on home territory, as a Divine directive. Why? Because they’ve ‘touched the apple of His eye’ – His Jewish people and His holy city – Jerusalem!

That is, nations which permit their citizens to insult and denigrate the Jewish people and their state – and making others boycott Israeli goods and services! – would eventually find that the Lord’s declared intention gets applied in their own lands, which is what we’ve been seeing before our very eyes.  And this is despite many European nations subscribing to the Laws of Holocaust Denial.

EU PREFERS DESCENDANTS OF PHILISTINES TO THOSE OF ISRAELITES

As mentioned in the previous Update, not only the Palestinian leadership but also that of the European Union refuse to recognise and stand resolutely against the Word of God.

On his December visit to Europe Israel’s PM Netanyahu encouraged its leaders to be open to Donald Trump’s recognising the reality of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital, but Europe’s foreign policy chief rejected his plea outright. That’s hardly surprising in view of the EU’s parliament building in Strasbourg being specifically built like the Tower of Babel, as described in UK/EU in/out #2 cont’d – Significant Spiritual Signs.

Here’s this week’s events that contribute towards a scriptural judgement; headlines and extract as on Koenig World Watch Daily homepage:

Abbas urges EU to swiftly recognize Palestine, says it will encourage peace

‘Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday urged the member states of the European Union to “swiftly” recognize the state of Palestine, arguing such a move would preserve the Palestinians’ hope for peace.

“We truly consider the European Union as a true partner and friend, and therefore we call its member states to swiftly recognize the state of Palestine and we confirm that there is no contradiction between recognition and the resumption of negotiations,” Abbas said in an address in Brussels. 

‘Abbas, who gave his remarks alongside EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, called on the EU to play a larger role in the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. “The EU should play a political role in this Middle East peace process in order to reach a just solution on the basis of internationally recognized terms and decisions,” Abbas said.’

EU promises to back Abbas’ demand for Jerusalem

Council of Europe to vote on condemning Trump’s Jerusalem recognition

Why is the EU warmly welcoming this rabid racist and Holocaust denier?  He should have been arrested as soon as he set foot in Europe!

Maybe the Lord regards Abbas as a modern-day Haman, as intimated in the opening minutes of the prophetic words for 2018 and beyond delivered by John Kilpatrick. (We’d not heard them prior to my completing this post – so this sentence has only been added at the last minute before publication.)

Caroline Glick, the internationally respected editor and journalist with first-hand experience of coordinating negotiations with the PLO, writes of Mahmoud Abbas’ personal history in Time for Trump to cut the cord on the Palestinians:

‘Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said that Abbas’ remarks (in Cairo at PLO conference on 19th January) harken back to “things that led him to be accused years ago of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.” Abbas’ PhD. thesis, which he wrote for a Soviet university controlled by the KGB in the 1960s denied the Holocaust.

‘Over the past 25 years, the Western and Israeli leaders that have hailed Abbas as a moderate dismissed the significance of his doctorate – which he later published in Jordan as a best-selling book – saying it was a relic of the PLO’s former rejection of Israel’s right to exist…

‘Contrary to Rivlin’s view of Abbas racist assault on Jews as a throwback to an earlier time, antisemitic diatribes have been a consistent feature of Abbas’ public statements, whether he is speaking to Arab or Western audiences.

‘In a speech before the European Parliament in 2016, for instance, Abbas recycled the medieval blood libel that Jews poison the wells of Christians. That blood libel incited the death of thousands of Jews through the ages.

‘Speaking to European lawmakers, Abbas said, “Certain rabbis in Israel have said very clearly to their government that our water should be poisoned in order to have Palestinians killed.”

As for his Holocaust denial being a thing of the past, Abbas posted his doctoral thesis on his official website. His lies are taught as fact in Holocaust education in the Palestinian school system – which he controls.’

BREXIT – OUR ‘GET-OUT-OF-JAIL’ CARD!

Clearly, Britain’s departure from the EU will help us avoid what the Lord will bring upon Europe – although we are not an entirely innocent party!  Doubtless, the verses we’ve considered is a very small portion of all scriptures behind the Lord’s warning to Britain to “Come out!” that David Noakes received in November 2015, part of which reads:

“Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.

“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve. If you will separate yourself from her declared rejection of God, I will have mercy upon you and restore my hand of protection; and I will use you once again to bring light to many lost in the darkness which is now steadily increasing.

Thus, the Lord’s deep desire is for the UK to avoid the judgement He’s already bringing upon the EU (latest at Davos 2018 re France and Ireland on Brexit deal).

To enable a fuller understanding of the immense importance of this End-times matter (v11 ‘in That Day’ cf Obadiah 1:15) to ALL nations TODAY, I recommend carefully and prayerfully reading the whole of chapter two of Zecharia, as appended below (emphases added):  Continue reading

Bible Update: Zecharia 2:8 and 8:8 – EU supports Palestine against Israel

For thus said the Lord of Hosts, after [His] glory had sent me [His messenger] to the nations who plundered you – for he who touches you touches the apple or pupil of His eye: “Behold I will swing my hand over them and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me. Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the Lord. (Zech 2:7-9 Amplified Bible)

Chapter 8 of the Book of Zecharia is sub-headed ‘Jerusalem, Holy City of the Future’ in the NKJV and verse 8 (NB: that number once again!!) reads:

“I will bring them back, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. They shall be my people and I will be their God in truth and righteousness.”

The Palestinian leadership and that of the European Union refuse to recognise and stand upon the Word of God, being defiantly and resolutely against it. But for blogging on a God-incidental validation of a personal debate I would have reported more fully on this issue sooner.  So as an aside I wrote about the EU’s official reaction to developments, viz:

‘On his recent (early December) visit to Europe PM Netanyahu encouraged its leaders to be open to Donald Trump’s recognising the reality of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital. But Europe’s foreign policy chief rejected his plea outright.  Did you know this person’s office and authority are established through the EU’s (more properly Western Assembly’s) ‘Recommendation 666’?  – my email April 2009 Not Many People Know: 2 refers (also see this useful summary dated 2006).’

In The Apocalypse, or ‘Revelation of Jesus Christ’, ‘666’ is the Number of the Beast out of the earth that serves the demonic dragon (ie. satan), and which some refer to as ‘The Antichrist’ (Rev 13:11-18).

This week Koenig’s World Watch Daily displays two headline reports on 10 January:

Norway, EU Call Meeting in Bid to ‘Speed Up’ Efforts for 2-State Solution

EU Foreign Policy head Federica Mogherini in Cuba, Jan 2018. (AFP/Adalberto Roque)

‘Norway and the European Union said Wednesday they would convene an “extraordinary session” of donor countries to the Palestinians, saying efforts to reach a peace deal needed to be hurried up.

‘The meeting of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee, to be held on January 31 in Brussels, is also meant to discuss the need to “enable the Palestinian Authority to execute full control over Gaza” based on the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation deal signed in Cairo on October 12, 2017.

“There is an urgent need to bring all parties together to discuss measures to speed up efforts that can underpin a negotiated two-state solution,” the EU said in a statement.

Netanyahu Hails US Envoy for Telling Truth about Palestinians Rejecting Peace

Ambassador David Friedman said Hamas’ glorification of attacks and PA’s paying terrorists a monthly stipend is to blame for stagnated peace process

The previous day’s KWWD home page has:

Erekat: No Peace Talks Until US Revokes Jerusalem Recognition

‘Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Tuesday said the Palestinians would reject all United States-sponsored peace talks until Washington rescinded its December 6 recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“The continued American talk about deals to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict or calling for negotiations or talks is unacceptable to the Palestinian leadership, as long as Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not revoked,” Erekat told the official Voice of Palestine radio station, according to the official PA news site Wafa.

‘When US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he “removed Jerusalem from any negotiations,” said Erekat.’

Previous reports are also directly relevant to our headline scripture:

CONCLUSION

Europe’s response to President Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem has been far more extreme, violent and outspoken than the response of the Arab world. Thus writes ‘ne plus ultra’ journalist Caroline Glick, whom I highly regard and recommend for well-informed, perspicious insights, as in Europe’s War Against The Jewish State.

Let’s not forget the prophetic word delivered by David Noakes on the Lord’s urging us to ‘Come Out!’ of the EU before He brings its breakdown, of which we observe unremitting progress towards its fulfillment!

So let’s watch what The Almighty does to those who array themselves against Him…AND “Genesis 12:3 applies too!

Bible Update: Psalm 2 – God is laughing at UN’s anti-Israel vote

Further to my musing on Kingdom-related Events Since Lightning Strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque, and especially to its section on Kingdom Presence & Prophecy, this published by Revd Dr Sharon Stone’s Prophetic Voice TV is most instructive:

©Tomi Arayomi at the United Nations in Geneva meeting with Christians in government, UN workers and diplomats.

TOMI ARAYOMI PROPHECY CONCERNING UNITED NATIONS VOTE SAYS, “GOD IS LAUGHING”! – HERE’S WHY

2016 saw the day of ‘the outsider’ formally known as Donald Trump rise to his title of acclaim as the ‘disruptive candidate’. Since his 2016 rise to power his influence today is shaking the world as his unapologetic campaign ‘America First’ leaves the rest of the world’s seemingly unified leaders speculating as to the unpredictability of this ‘president of chaos’. [RB > Lance Walnau: Why Trump is ‘God’s Chaos Candidate’ and ‘Wrecking Ball’ – ‘hat-tip’ to Lynne Hodder.]

On December 21st 2017, the United Nations voted 128-9 to condemn United States’ embassy move to Jerusalem despite warnings from US Ambassador Nikki Haley that acts by the United Nations against US democracy will not be taken lightly.

The Countries that voted in solidarity with Israel include Guatelmala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Togo.

Recently, Prophet Tomi Arayomi visited the United Nations and had the opportunity to prophesy to many United Nations’ workers, Christians in government and diplomats. What the Lord revealed to him concerning the United Nations should poise all involved in government at Geneva to both feel hopeful and prayerful during 2018 and the next three years.

Tomi’s prophetic account reads:

“The Lord showed me a picture of His view concerning the United Nations.  I saw an underground movement of peoples devoted to the reform of the United Nations rising to prominent positions of influence and change.  I also saw the Lord laughing not in jubilee but it was the mocking laughter of Psalm 2:

‘Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, let us break their chains and throw off their shackles. The one enthroned in heaven laughs!’ (Psalm 2:1-4)

“The Lord showed me president Donald Trump as a literal Cyrus for Israel’s sake!

‘For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honour, though you do not acknowledge me.’ (Isaiah 45:4)

“Watch as the Lord begins to use an outsider to bring about chaos in the United Nations. The world will gather to condemn and the mainstream media will echo the voice of a global elite. The ‘establishment church’ will rise to condemn the capitalisation of Israel. There will be great cries for impeachment and when asked ‘on what grounds?’, the world stage will condemn a man whose hand is sustained by God of disrupting the diplomacy of the United Nations and stoking possible world wars!  World leaders will link arms in solidarity against a Nationalist candidate but I will show forth the weak links in their chain! Yes they will link arms but there are ‘chinks in their chain.’

“In the midst of great boast I will raise up sheep Nations.  There will be those that will stand with Israel and some will move their embassies back to Jerusalem even before the United States. They will do it as a sign of protest and as a sign of my laughter over Jerusalem. You will hear of the unheard Nations, nameless and faceless Nations, that I will give a name and a face for their solidarity with Israel. I will fulfil my promise that says- Jerusalem- I will bless those that bless you!

“I will laugh at their gathering against My name and My anointed Nation and I will call for the unheard and unnamed Nations to move their embassies back to My Holy City. 

“Tel Aviv! Your loyalties will be shaken by my laughter! Your embassies will tremble at my jest! For I will shake you with My laughter!!”

UPDATE:

Koenig’s World Watch Daily reports 3rd January:

WASHINGTON — US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley hosted her counterparts from 64 nations on Wednesday night who abstained, voted ‘no’ or remained absent last month on a General Assembly resolution condemning the Trump administration for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The reception was cast as a “friendship reception” by Haley. “It’s easy for friends to be with you in the good times, but it’s the friends who are with you during the challenging times that will never be forgotten,” Haley said. “Thank you to the 64.”

Photos posted by Haley and the US mission to the UN in New York on Twitter show the reception included wine and live music, held at the US facility across the street from UN headquarters. Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, also was in attendance

As the UN and Palestinians keep biting the hand that feeds them, Donald Trump quite rightly thinks enough is enough and is slashing billion of dollars in financial aid AND snapping ties with Palestinians.

Leisa Ebere: 2018 – the Lord is calling His servants in the time of great shaking

 PROPHETIC  WORD  FOR  2018

“My People, there is a great stirring and great shaking happening upon the earth today and in 2018 I am calling My sons and daughters, from the north, the south, the east and the west, to be commissioned into My service for such a time as this. For My Church is besieged from all sides and the walls are broken down and I am calling the Prophets and the Apostles of this nation and many nations across the earth to be repairers of the breach. For although there is a great desire for My Presence, My People are scattered, distracted and divided and I declare that there must be a great coming together of My People; as they consider and weigh the costs of the calling and anointing, I have placed upon their lives. For the old things must pass away,” says the Lord, “as I reveal My strategies and My intent for this nation, and many nations around the earth.  And just as in the days of Nehemiah, I am requiring My people to build the walls whilst protecting My flock,” says the Lord. “And know this, I will require focus and I will require holiness,” says the Lord, “for demonic strongholds and fleshly sin will arise to cause terror at night and storms during the day.  But be comforted, for I am providing the resources and the reinforcements to you,” says the Lord, “for My anger at those who seek to oppress you, shall not be abated.  And I tell you that the vain imaginations, false humility, and tactics of the enemy that have blinded the eyes of My people in the past, shall no longer be effective against you, for surely as Samson’s eyes were taken away due to the spiritual blindness he had towards the woman, Delilah; that this shall not happen to you. Rise Up My People, and let Me empower you for the days ahead, for surely My arm is stronger than any tactic of the enemy?  For I am bringing upon you a new season of Open Heaven, as I equip you with a battle-axe and voice of declaration in My Name, and these things used well, will be effective in casting down the enemy to a place of unquenchable flames. And I declare again, that in 2018 there shall be a great gathering of My People,” says God, “and the true mighty men and women I have chosen, shall be established, and they shall stand and declare the Word of the Lord to shake nations in My Name,” says the Lord of Hosts.

Lana Vawser: 2018 – the family, fruitfulness and fear of the Lord!

As at the close of the previous post the full text of the very deep understanding about next year that Lana gained from the Lord reads as below. This is a very powerful word based upon the following sub-heads:

  • Family
  • Family Units
  • New Vision & Blueprints in Family
  • Children of Promise
  • Family of God
  • Increase of Identity Revelation
  • Fear of God
  • Get Ready to Go Back to School with Holy Spirit
  • Isaiah 6 Encounters
  • An Unquenchable Fire
  • Greatest Year of Fruitfulness Thus Far.

2018 – THE YEAR OF FAMILY, FRUITFULNESS AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD!!

‘About 4 months ago the Lord began to speak to me about 2018. The Lord highlighted to me “2018 being the year of FAMILY, FRUITFULNESS and FEAR OF THE LORD.”

‘The sense that surrounded me regarding this prophetic word, was that what the Lord is going to do in 2018 is going to leave God’s people and the world in awe and wonder of who He is.

‘2018 is going to be a year of THE UNEXPECTED in many ways and will leave people and nations in AWE of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

‘As we move into 2018, I believe that the Lord is asking for a deeper level of yieldedness. A deeper level of trust that says “Lord, whatever your way, I am ALL in. Even if it looks like I didn’t expect, I am ALL IN!!!!” Continue reading

Ezekiel’s vision of The Almighty’s flame-like glory

It was an immense delight soon after waking on this the last day of November 2017 that its meditation in Sanctuary returns to the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel. Over the past four weeks David Strutt shared many gems from the OT prophets as a preparation for next month’s Advent season. It was instructive to dip into the relevant scriptures whenever possible, but I focused especially on those from Ezekiel and upon his life after receiving his Call 2,600 years ago!

After having blogged or read posts and comments on visions of holy fire, my eyes almost popped out upon reading…

Day 335 – November 30th

‘We cannot leave Ezekiel without going back to the beginning, to meditate a while on the vision that first put fire and fear and awe-struck love of God into his heart, soul and mind. He was by the River Chebar [exiled with the Hebrews in Chaldea/Babylonia] when a vision of heaven began. He saw things indescribable that are difficult to fully understand although our spirits rise with his as we hear of the beauty of the angelic forces and the servant beings. But there comes a point when even those pale into insignificance. [Am using New King James Version of Ezekiel 1:25-28 because it conveys a slightly fuller description than the New American Standard Bible.]:

‘A voice came from above the firmament that (was) over their heads; whenever they stood they let down their wings.

‘And above the firmament over their heads (was) the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne (was) a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.

‘Also from the appearance of his waist and upward I saw, as it were, the colour of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

‘Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so (was) the appearance of the brightness all around it. This (was) the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.’

Selah!

This is where language fails to convey and do justice to novel experience. It was hard for Ezekiel to describe this staggering vision, as we may gather from his repetitions of ‘as it were’, ‘the appearance of’ and ‘the likeness of’.  In other words, we should infer that his description is not to be regarded as being totally definitive of the Almighty.

The important lesson for the prophet-in-training was that God was present in Babylonia as well in Jerusalem.

It’s particularly noteworthy from the vision that the throne above the ‘heavens’ has an occupant described as being human-like but composed of, as well as being obscured by, the brilliance of fire.

Note also Hebrews 12: after stating in verse 26 that God has promised “Yet once more I shall shake not only the earth, but also heaven’ (per Haggai 2:6) and explaining its meaning, the chapter closes with its reason:  For our God is a consuming fire’.

Veronika West – 2018: the year of the Great and Mighty S-H-I-F-T

With acknowledgement to UK Prophetic Words for this from Veronika West, wherein she moves into bold prophetic decrees:

I prophesy,

2018 WILL BE KNOWN AS THE YEAR WHERE ‘EVERYTHING SHIFTED AND CHANGED’!

• S – SUDDENLY AND SEVERELY, A GREAT SEPARATION (will manifest both Spiritually and Physically in the earth)
• H – HEALING, HOPE RESTORED AND A GREAT HARVEST
• I – INFILLING, INSIGHT AND ILLUMINATION FOR GREATER KINGDOM INFLUENCE AND IMPACT
• F – FIRES AND FAMILIES
• T – TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS, AND EVEN GREATER TRIUMPHS AND DIVINE TURNAROUNDS

This is what I heard the Spirit of God say as I began to pray and intercede for the New Year ahead 2018, “Daughter, tell My People to Watch! To Stay Vigilant and to Be Ready, for the Year ahead will be known as the Year where SUDDENLY EVERYTHING SHIFTED AND CHANGED”!

As I heard those words, I was caught up in a powerful vision where I saw the finger of God write the word “SHIFT” in gold over the Nations of the earth, then I heard these words in the spirit realm: “WATCH! FOR 2018 WILL THE YEAR WHERE THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH WILL BE SHIFTED AND CHANGED, WATCH!

“For My Hand Of Justice and Judgement will move ‘SUDDENLY and SEVERELY’ in the Nations of the earth, and the Earth will quake and shake, and the mountains will erupt, and the waters of the seas will rise and flow forth upon dry ground.

“For a great SEPARATION will now begin to manifest upon the land and in the air,” says the Spirit of God.

“WATCH! For 2018 will be a Year of HEALING, RESTORED HOPE AND A GREAT HARVEST. For My Spirit will move to HEAL the Sick and the dying and to RESTORE HOPE in the hearts of those who are lost and walking in darkness.

“And the Winds of My Spirit will blow upon the threshing floors to sift the Nations of the Earth, for the Goats and the Sheep will be scattered from among you.

“WATCH! For My Sons and Daughters will receive even greater INFILLING, INSIGHT AND ILLUMINATION of My hidden Mysteries, THAT WILL IMPACT’ every sphere of INFLUENCE in the Nations of the Earth.

“Watch! For 2018 will be a Year where My Hand of Divine Retribution will move to expose and overthrow every throne of wickedness in the Governments of the earth; for a divine realignment will begin to take place in the Nations of the Earth.

“WATCH! For In 2018 My Glory will be made manifest through FIRES AND through FAMILIES, For My heart will be turned towards the ‘FATHERS’ in this season. Have I not said, I will cause the hearts of the Fathers to be turned back towards their children and the hearts of the children back towards their Fathers?”

“WATCH My Beloved, for 2018 will be a Year of great TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS in the Earth but FEAR NOT! For greater will be the TRIUMPHS AND DIVINE TURNAROUNDS’ that will be made manifest in the midst of those who WILL PUT THEIR TRUST IN ME!”

The Father has given me more concerning the Year 2018 which I will share in the days ahead.

GET READY FOR A GREAT AND MIGHTY S-H-I-F-T WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH; I BELIEVE WE ARE ALREADY BEGINNING TO SEE THIS TAKE PLACE….!

Decree S-H-I-F-T for the Year ahead 2018; DECREE:

  • I WILL SEE THE HAND OF GOD MOVING SUDDENLY AND SEVERELY IN THE EARTH, FOR HIS GLORY HE IS BRINGING ABOUT A GREAT SEPARATION IN THE NATIONS.
  • I POSITION MYSELF TO RECEIVE DIVINE HEALING, HOPE AND DIVINE RESTORATION TO EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE

Exposure of sin, darkness and corruption as sign of God’s coming glory

One of many important words being received in these times, this from UK Prophetic Words reminds me of my musing last year about the increasing exposure of corruption and its connection to the foretold great shaking of everything (Hebrews 12:25-29):

SIN, DARKNESS AND CORRUPTION BEING EXPOSED IS THE SIGN OF THE COMING WAVE OF GOD’S GLORY

Two weeks ago I awoke in the morning with a clear picture in my mind. I was standing on the shore of one of our beautiful Pembrokeshire bays looking out to sea when suddenly the water in front of me began to recede rapidly and very quickly the whole sea in front of me out to the horizon was empty of water. I could see the whole of the bottom of the sea covered with rocks and other features which had been completely hidden.

I knew immediately that this was an indication of a coming tsunami wave and then the Lord began to speak to me:

“These days are like the time before a tsunami. The waters are drawing back, the seas are retreating and all the earth is being exposed. Sin, darkness, corruption and iniquity are being exposed as I draw back the waters that cover the earth. You will see an increasing exposure of all that has been hidden since the beginning of time. But it is the sign of the coming wave of my glory.

“I will sweep over the earth with the living waters of my Spirit and so shall my glory cover the earth even as the waters now cover it. It shall be as in the days of Noah but this time the flood shall be a flood of my light and truth and it shall sweep away the works of the enemy and I shall recover and restore that which belongs to me.

“Then shall the end come; then shall my Son return; then shall every knee bow before him; then shall I gather together all things in him and bring forth new heavens and a new earth in which my righteousness dwells. 

“Therefore, do not despair and do not be cast down but lift up your heads, lift up your eyes and see that which I am doing, for your redemption draws near. I do not wait until the last moment to help my people as some of you think. My timing is perfect, established from before time existed. What and when I move is according to my perfect will and purposes.

“Change your thinking about me and my ways. I do whatever I please for the sake of my Name. I am not the God of the last moment; I am the God of the present and perfect moment. Draw near to me and live with me in the present moment every day. This is your inheritance that has been purchased for you and freely given to you. This is your rightful place of rest that will keep you from fear and anxiety when you look at the situations around you, when you see evil everywhere and hear of wars and rumours of wars. Draw near to me and live in my peace,” says your God.

UK Nationwide Prophetic Circuit Messages – #1

We begin a series of prophetic messages brought by Leisa Ebere following what she received from the Lord on His UK Mandate for the Prophetic Profiling of Our Nation.

Leisa explains, “I know you did not expect to hear back from me so soon; but last night the Lord woke me up and spoke to me for several hours and gave me an impartation, instructions and the first of six prophetic words He intends to give me, every five days, for the next 30 days.  He also spoke to me that He has imparted to me an “Ezekiel Anointing;” and that I am to entitle these Words from Him: “The UK Nationwide Prophetic Circuit Messages.”  He further said: “That like circuit networks that provide established messages throughout entire telephone networks, so He also desires for these messages to cause His Prophets across the land, to understand His timings and seasons more clearly, and to establish and equip them to rise up more boldly than they ever have before, so that they can meet the challenges He has set before them”.’

As with all prophetic words these messages are to be weighed with scripture and the Lord.

“2018, I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly ‘My Numbers’, such as dates, times and even denominations of money as I loose significant detail and even finance, which will be diverted into the hands and hearts of the men and women, who will use this information and resource to bring about the freedom of the captives of the human race. These captives are held by the harbingers and sirens of the enemy and choose to continually harass My People.  These vile spirits seek to plague My People with the guilt of sins that have long ago been forgiven and washed away by the sacrifice and blood of My Dear Son.  Beloved, I will not allow My People to be distracted nor defeated in this way.  Prayer led by the direction and intensity of My Spirit will shake the rotten fruit which the enemy seeks to use to pollute My Body and to spoil the rooted trees of My Kingdom.

“The year 2019 will be the year of the ‘Appellate Court’ where I will be weighing and measuring in the Body of Christ, and those who are serving Me with wrong motives will be sidelined and placed out of action until I can be sure that their hearts are changed to hearken to My Voice and to heed My Purposes for their lives and this nation.  Beloved, I must purge and I must purify, for the installments of my strategies can only be shared with those who are willing to undergo this process.  Oh, but the joy and the rewards that await those that press forwards into My plans and My purposes will be great.  Shout My People, for My Grace is Sufficient, says God, and such purity of heart will surely bring My Glory upon this barren land.”

May He Bless You and Keep you,

Leisa Ebere, 26th October 2017

Time for the ‘house of cards’ to come down!

This prophetic promise comes courtesy of UK Prophetic Words and is very interesting in view of what Leisa Ebere and Charlie Shamp brought here and here from the Lord, and ‘Amen’ to Vida Caplin’s conclusion:

IT IS TIME FOR THE HOUSE OF CARDS TO COME DOWN

I saw in the spirit a house of cards and heard the old nursery rhyme ‘London Bridge is falling down‘ begin to play. A hand appeared and took a card from the bottom and the house fell. I looked at the cards as they lay in a heap and saw that they were all face cards, jacks, queens and kings. I then heard another old rhyme ‘Humpty Dumpty’ begin to play.

I asked Holy Spirit to reveal to me the meaning of the vision.

“This house of cards has been carefully built over the years by those in power, it has been shaken countless times, many have seen the cracks form but it has been fortified and strengthened by those who live within its walls. It is now the time for this house to come down and it shall be done by my hand. Many shall wonder at its falling and ask, How can this be? Should we not rebuild? Can we not establish again what once was? But it shall not come to pass for no man can put this back together.”

Again I pondered on Holy Spirit’s revelation but wondered why the two nursery rhymes had played. I was stirred to look at the words of each one. In London Bridge is falling down, the words repeat time and time again in each verse about rebuilding and making stronger the construction, even setting guards to watch over it. Yet when Humpty Dumpty falls the last line states, ‘All the King’s horses and all the King’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again!’

God is going to pull down something very big and it will not be rebuilt. This is an empire work of corruption that Holy Spirit is speaking of. The house of cards speaks of something that has been intricately built over the years, the face cards speak of those who are in powerful positions or are known. More than that Holy Spirit has not revealed but we watch for the dramatic fall to happen.

PS 1: Blog’s facebook remarks 31 Oct:

>Rachel Elliston: ‘I’m not familiar with the tv series House of Cards (it is a box set yet to be watched), however I was amused to see it in the news on my fb feed in the context of being ‘deeply troubled’ and the series being cancelled… just days after I first saw this word. Funny how things in the spiritual and the ‘natural’, or ‘symbolic natural’ mirror each other, often in very odd ways’.

> My response: ‘…I too am unfamiliar with US-version of ‘HoC’ and didn’t follow last night’s and today’s news…but noted front-page spread of today’s Telegraph on scandals relating to UK MPs and US government (albeit fictitious in latter). So it’s not only a demonic version of the UK/US spiritual link but also an instance of the Lord exposing corruption in every sphere, as in examples of fulfilled prophecies (see FP #10 entries).
