Today’s and one month away’s awesome events in the heavens

Featured

Saturday was ‘fortunate’ in my being able to blog quickly on the significance of today’s heavenly event – the total solar eclipse that’s crossing the United States from west to east – but there wasn’t time to give any specifics as to what to watch for in Mark Blitz in-depth teaching.

Moreover, an even more astonishing matter not only links today’s (Monday 21st August) stellar event of being at the start of the new month of Elul (the month of preparatory repentance leading into the Jewish New Year) with its close at the two-day feast of Rosh Hashannah, but also with a secular, global declaration on 21st September – as foretold about 1,967 years ago in one of the earliest, if not the very first, documents of the Christian church – Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians!

So let me draw your attention to the points Mark makes, as in Ernest Hay’s video copy of CHP’s service on Sunday 13th August:

As mentioned in that post, Mark’s teaching is worth watching in its entirety in order to grasp the enormity of what’s happening and its relevance to holy scripture.  The points I want to highlight and their timings are:

  • 0:48:00 – astronomical mechanism of eclipses and lunar basis of God’s calendar
  • 0:50:50 – earth-moon:earth-sun distance AND comparative size ratio = 1:400
  • 0:51:40 – archaic form of Hebrew letter tav is ‘X’ and has numerical value 400
  • [NB: ‘tav’, means ‘sign, mark, signal or monument’ – click link for details ]
  • 0:59:15 – ‘X’ is shape of paths of today’s eclipse and in 7 years time across USA
  • 1:01:20 – astronomical location of today’s eclipse is in constellation Leo
  • 1:02:00 – the alignment of planets on 23rd Sept in Virgo matches Rev 12 ‘woman’
  • 1:06:05 – UN’s annual International Day of Peace inaugurated 11 Sept 2001
  • 1:07:00 – dates changed to 21st September with different theme each year
  • 1:07:25 – 21st September for 2017-18: ‘Peace, Respect, Safety and Dignity’!

Note that Apostle Paul conveyed to the early church what he’d learned direct from the Lord Jesus Christ on that subject:

‘But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.’  (1 Thess 5:1-4 NKJV courtesy Biblegateway.com)

This is what I was referring to in closing To ‘bong’ or not to ‘bong’… about the silencing of Big Ben in London from today, a month to the day away from Rosh Hasannah.

In view of the Jewish calendar starting each month at the new moon, some have queried Mark’s statement of the eclipse being at the start of Elul.  The month is reckoned from the time a new moon is sighted and Mark has posted an informative clarification on his El Shaddai Ministries website (see home page video).

Readers interested in next month’s astronomical relevance of Revelation 12 may like to note its reference in Supermoon Monday’s ‘Blood Moon’ and the ‘Age to Come’ (posted Sept 2015).

A Reminder: Mark made his notes for the session available to attendees at Church of His Presence and a downloadable pdf copy may be obtained via this icon  >>

 

Sex-Synod & Parliamentarians in Jesus’ and St Paul’s End-times prophecies – #2

The Ark Encounter, Ken Ham Facebook – click/tap for link

Continuing from #1 – for ease of reference, the prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – that Day (of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’

Re-reading that scripture upon learning of July’s Sex-Synod shenanigans something struck me from each its verses, namely:

  1. the CofE is in full-blown apostasy and thus will get at best a full-blown shaking down or, at worst, a deepening schism between orthodox and permissive clergy!
  2. someone will soon be on the world scene and manifest the antichrist spirit as ‘the son of perdition’, but is satan using the current situation as a ‘trial-run’ of what’s foretold by using ‘unwitting’ secular leaders as its mouthpiece??

Important to note that I’m NOT saying those people are demonic or demon-possessed. Disciples of Christ are only too aware of the nature of the spiritual battle being waged worldwide for everyone’s spirit, souls and minds – it’s influencing almost every aspect of our lives. The not-yet saved are thereby highly vulnerable and susceptible to satanic deceptions and all too easily fall prey to the enemy of our souls. It wants nothing less than our destruction, spiritual enslavement and eventual incarceration in hell.

PARLIAMENTARY IMPLICATIONS

In tandem with the General Synod’s formal declaration on banning Conversion Therapy, we see humanistic notions of equality, diversity,  rights and sexuality permeating ‘progressive liberal’ goals. John Bercow, long-standing LGBT activist and the Speaker of the House Commons, addressed Pink News at a reception in Parliament. Although speaking in an unofficial capacity, in view of that Parliamentary position his opinion may be deemed as being an ‘ex-officio’ statement. Premier quotes him as saying,

“We are marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.

“There’s always a balance to be struck – we don’t want to behave as though it’s all over, that everything has been done. Nothing remains – because that isn’t true.

“I still feel that we can only really have equal marriage when you can b***** well get married in a church if you want to do so.”

‘When the law changed in 2013, churches were offered a protection that they wouldn’t be forced to host gay marriages in their building.” 

[Pink News reports: “‘I suppose in marriage terms there will only really be complete legal equality when it is permissible for a gay couple to marry as a matter of right in a church.” Referring to the Church of England’s clause, he added: “I always felt it was a pity when the same-sex marriage legislation went through that as a way of accommodating some of the church interests there was that compromise which detracted a little bit from the concept of complete equality”.’]

Blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ takes on the case of Justine vs Justin: the ‘not yet’ and ‘never’ of same-sex marriage in the Church of England – his report merits reading in full but here’s its first paragraphs (emphases mine) – note the ‘sacred cow’ of ‘equality’:

Sex-Synod & Parliamentarians in Jesus’ and St Paul’s End-times prophecies – #1

14/85 sex-related questions: NONE on the Persecuted Church! Credit: Cranmer

We stay on the current topic to:
  • expand upon previous posts on apostasy
  • consider its direct relevance to the UK Parliament
  • examine two End-times prophecies and their context
  • review how satanic strategy is engineering a work-around.

I humbly submit this material as an outcome of the prophecy spoken over me soon after launching this blog, as at the close of Why Write/blog?  This is only the second time I’ve referred to that specific gifting and I offer this 2-part post for weighing by my brothers and sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ.:

THE DAY OF THE LORD

The issues are opened up in Synod Sides With satan – Risks Anglican Schism/Shaking and their import is outlined in re-published extract On The Great Apostasy & Deception; wherein I write about Apostle Paul’s letter informing the early church what’s destined to happen before The Day of The Lord and Jesus’ return to earth.

The prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’

The Bible’s first reference to ‘The Day of The Lord’ was uttered circa 585 BC by prophet Obadiah in connection with the vengeance God would bring upon the Edomites in view of their hatred for their distant relatives and in aiding the Babylonian attack against them and desecrating Jerusalem and taking the Jewish people into captivity. This word of the Lord is soon fulfilled in Edom’s disappearance. Obadiah’s scroll is the shortest in the OT but its closing verses prophesy Israel’s final triumph in not only returning home but also in its eschatalogical significance for ‘the day of the Lord’; a season of divine justice and judgement of ALL nations around Israel, viz:

‘For the day of the LORD upon all nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall return upon your own head. For as you drank on My holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually…and they shall be as though they had never existed.’ (Obadiah 15-16)

It’s important not to overlook the fact that in quoting Isaiah 61 as His ‘mission statement’ Jesus opened that synagogue scroll and quoted the first verse only, and then stopped (Luke 4:16-21). The Spirit of the Lord God was upon and anointed Him to preach the Good News, to heal the broken-hearted and bring release for those bound as though imprisoned. That was the purpose of His First Advent, but the subsequent verses allude to the anointing also continuing in His Second Advent, namely:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God…”

ANGLICAN ‘SEX-SIN-NOD’

The above post offered my opinion that the apostate nature of July’s General Synod of the Church of England, especially the Archbishop of York’s actions, marked a tipping point of Anglican apostasy because of its authoritative role in that church’s legislative affairs. Also, it would engender schismatic action! Continue reading

Queen’s former chaplain leads rebel Anglican group threatening to split Church over sexuality issues

This re-blog and an Open Letter from a large PCC in the north that’s lost confidence in the Archbishop of York in ‘all things spiritual’ and thus requesting his repentance for what took place, are essential material in my coverage of the 2 Thess2:3 Apostasy.

Shakings and God’s Glory for Britain and America

This word is brought by Chris Bennett, who lives in Rotherham (home-town of Nathan Morris; Shake the Nations ministry’s founder) is the same date as that through Bill Jennings on Shaking and Rebuilding the Church (tap/click title for Chris’ Facebook):

UK & USA – SHAKINGS AND THE GLORY

I sense this is coming to UK AND USA simultaneously. The first wave of revival will be marked by shakings and the Glory of the Lord in our meetings.

Acts 4:31 – And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness’.

There is a new shaking coming. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken, but the Lord is sending a new shaking to encourage rather than a shaking to destroy and throw down. The Lord is sending an Acts 4:31 shaking that when the church prays, the buildings will shake and the people will be encouraged.

I have noticed minor tremors shaking our church and others have noticed similar occurrences in their own church. However, I believe, and I sense that the Lord is sending an unmistakable shaking that will be recognisable and specific to their church, but not to anything around the church.

“I am about to shake your buildings – literally shake them – that you may know that I am moving among you,” says the Lord. “I am about to do amazing things to encourage you; to give you a hunger for more of Me. Your buildings will shake and the sick will be healed. Your buildings will shake and demons will flee, screaming in fear. Your buildings will shake and your people will shout, ‘the Lord, He is God – the Lord, He is God!’ Then My glory will come and you will all know My presence!”

Watch for the Lord’s Spirit moving powerfully in Britain and America

My jaw dropped upon reading this of Veronika West in yesterday’s mail because it plugged into a dream I’d just had:

WATCH! FOR THE SPIRIT OF YAHWEH IS  MANIFESTING THROUGH FIRE, THROUGH WIND, THROUGH RAIN “FOR THIS IS THE SEASON OF DIVINE PURIFICATION, RESTORATION AND REVIVAL” says God….!

I have been in a place of hidden-ness for the last few weeks and in this scared time I have encountered the presence of Yeshua in the most unusual and unprecedented ways. A few days ago I was caught up in a powerful encounter with the Lord where I saw “1,000 FIRES” being ignited in 100 different Nations, then I saw the Spirit of Yeshua begin to move and manifest mightily upon the earth. He first came as a RAGING FIRE, then He came as a MIGHTY WHIRLWIND, then He came as an UNSTOPPABLE RUSHING RIVER bringing FORTH REVIVAL TO ALL FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH.

Then I heard these words in the realm of the Spirit,

“Daughter of man, behold I will come as a RAGING FIRE to purify and cleanse, then I will come as a MIGHTY WHIRLWIND to gather what has been scattered and to restore what has been lost, watch! For then I shall come as a MIGHTY RUSHING RIVER to replenish the weary and to revive the dead. Daughter of man tell My people to make ready, to make room and to make way, for My spirit will manifest suddenly, quickly and severely upon the earth”.

Veronika West, 19th July 2017

Now upon checking her Facebook for inserting the Ignite Ireland Ministry link I notice this powerful vision also received on Wednesday:

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA; KEEP PRAYING FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, FOR GOD IS ABOUT TO MOVE IN YET STRANGER WAYS.

“I SAW MOLES BEING DRIVEN OUT OF THEIR HOLES AND BLACK SNAKES EMERGING FROM THEIR CAVES”!

Early hours of yesterday morning as I prayed for you as a Nation, Suddenly a vivid vision opened up before me where I saw in the Spirit realm, moles being driven out of their holes and black snakes began to emerge from the darkness of their caves. Now as the moles came out of their holes suddenly the black snakes began to devour the moles, Then I heard these words.

“I AM SENDING CONFUSION INTO THE CAMP OF THE ENEMY. WATCH! FOR THE MOLES ARE NOW BEING DRIVEN OUT OF THEIR HOLES AND BLACK SNAKES OUT OF THEIR CAVES, FOR NOW MY GOVERNING HAND IS MOVING TO UNCOVER AND EXPOSE EVERY EVIL WORK OF CORRUPTION AND DESTRUCTION THAT HAS BEEN HIDDEN AND CONCEALED UNDERGROUND FOR MANY DECADES, YES! FOR MANY HEADS WILL ROLL AS MY SWORD FALLS UPON THE NECK OF THE WICKED. FOR EVEN NOW MY SPIRIT OF TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE IS MOVING MIGHTILY AND STRATEGICALLY TO DRIVE OUT THE MOLES FROM THEIR HOLES AND THE BLACK SNAKES FROM THEIR CAVES, WATCH! FOR SURELY I TELL YOU A LYING SPIRIT HAS BEEN UNLEASHED AMOUNG THEM AND THEY SHALL TURN ON ONE ANOTHER AND SEEK TO KILL AND DESTROY EACH OTHER”..!

Veronika West, 19th July 2017

Amen and amen!

RB footnote – A Dream:

The ‘MIGHTY RUSHING RIVER’ reference astonished me because I’d seen one and MORE just before waking up yesterday a few hours before reading the above. Along with our Christian friends we were aboard a gigantic, ship-like vessel that made huge waves as it ploughed forcefully into a beach – and then rammed into it again but more deeply. I saw the impact made the nearby coastal area change shape.

Next, immense gushing floods came down an adjacent river and out to sea. Upon my waking I thought images of Monday’s flash-flood in Cornwall had stayed in mind – BUT although similar shapes and colours were in my view high up on that huge vessel, that recorded event was tiny in comparison with the immensity of what then happened – all I can say to convey the effect is: I recalled footage of the tsunami that hit Japan but what was coming was devoid of the detritus that had carried along with its flow! I sensed the whole land was being swamped with an immense flood of clear water. Then I awoke!

Hours later we returned from a ministry period over lunch-time at church. With our tall vicar Valentine, Nina and I worshiped, celebrated communion, waited on the Lord and prayed for the area and community.

Holy ‘rain’ featured for each of us in connection with the last item. During a quiet time I asked the Lord for more on that raging flood in my dream. Next, I heard Val quietly ask for something and so checked what he’d said, “Did you say ‘Open the floodgates of heaven’ Lord?“ I asked. “Yes!”  So amen to that, and I hadn’t yet told either of them about the dream; which I then did. But I knew he spoke into and unwittingly declared and released what happened in my dream!

In my dream I ‘sensed’ clear water was coming over the whole land behind a dirty flood. This afternoon I understood it signifies the land and people of Britain are parched dry by decades-long spiritual drought and are badly in need of rejuvenating spiritual water.

The dream-sequence may mean demonic and immoral filth that society’s wallowing in is first going to get washed away before an invisible deluge of the Lord’s holy living waters brings times of refreshing.

SHAKING and RE-BUILDING the CHURCH in the UK

Thank you Lord and to Bill and UK Prophetic Words for this received yesterday because it confirms my thoughts on heresy and apostasy within the C of E. and thus encouraged publication of Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking. (NB. emphases and italicising mine).:

I AM GOING TO SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHURCH

I saw in my prayer time a vision; I saw a ruler, a plumb-line. As I contemplated this vision, thoughts and understanding came to me as to its meaning. I felt the Lord saying,

“Measure yourselves by my plumb-line. Align yourselves with my Word and my Spirit, for these two together are my plumb-line, these are my spirit-level.”

The traditional, institutional church and its recent decisions on same sex relationships had been on my mind.

I felt the Lord saying,

“Watch and see, as I do a rebuilding of my church. I am going to shake the foundations of the church in your land. The walls are going to rattle the floors will be shaken as I shake off, remove and level those and reject those who have rejected me. Those who have rejected my Word I reject. I am shaking the church out of compromise. The very foundations and structures of the church will be shaken. Many are choosing the broad path, the god of compromise. They have turned my glory into shame. How long will they love delusions? Rather than seek the truth.”

Many scriptures came to my mind, such as , “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision “. Many leaders, many of the institution of the ‘ church ‘ will have to choose between the path of compromise or the path of conflict. The path of complacency or the path of spiritual fervour. Whether to be loved by the world, or be hated by the world.

“Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you; because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY”…“My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me. Since you priests refuse to know me, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten the laws of your God.”

“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap”

I felt the Lord saying,

“This is not a time for rejoicing but a time for weeping and wailing. Look around you, many who call themselves by my name who claim to be my ‘church’ have made an alliance with satan . Their leaders have forgotten the God and Father of their fathers through whom I gave birth .They have spurned and rejected my word so I too spurn and reject them. Measure yourselves by my Word says the Lord; let it be the rule and the plumb-line. If it does not measure up then throw it out! The stones with which I built my house are built on the chief cornerstone, and on the foundation of prophets and apostles. These stones are crying out against those who have contaminated my house, as the contamination spreads the house will have to be torn down.’ The ‘church’, this institution make their decisions and their rules but did they consult me?

“Consider the future as you look at the past, how many of my ‘churches’ did not measure up, or remain ‘true’ as measured by my plumb-line?

“Many are following the traditions of men. Consider the ‘churches’ which are not my church. Are not many of them now lying derelict, have they not been turned into theatre halls, bars and restaurants? They craved after idolatry so I gave them over to their lusts and cravings. But my house will be called Holy! My true and accepted stones are not institutions but they are living stones, inscribed with ‘Holiness unto the Lord’; the filthy, the unregenerate, the sexually immoral, the idolaters will be rejected.

“For I will build my house with the plumb-line of my word and truth and by the Spirit of Holiness, my eternal word does not change.”

I hear the Lord say,

“You cry out for revival but I say cry out in repentance! My house will be called a house of prayer and yet it is through my intercessors and prayer warriors that my Spirit will bring revival through repentance and supplication.

“There is a rumbling, there is a shaking, there is change coming. You who crave revival, consider that with it comes a cost. It comes through sacrifice, with revival comes rejection by some of your peers. The religious among you will spurn you and say evil things about you.”

As I wrote these things down it was like writing a transcript as the thoughts flowed. I filtered the thoughts through my knowledge of scripture.

And I thought Lord, why do you give me the hard words? There are those who will reject this for they want the encouraging words, they want words to make them feel good. They want words of promise and edification. They want words of hope and joy.

And I remembered the scripture: “The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says the LORD of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, declares the LORD of hosts.’”

If the great awakening comes it must be marked out with repentance, changed lives that will put away immoral living who will seek Holiness and separation from the world. Let them come to us to find shelter under our care rather than the church going to the world to be friends. Be friends of sinners, but not friends with sinners. The sinner and the seeker will find love, joy and peace in an uncompromising message, an uncompromising Christ.

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.”

Bill Jennings, 18th July, 2017

Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking

Jesus: “ALL authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.” [circa 33 AD, Matt 28: 18-20]

General Synod: “NO, not as it means keeping God’s word on sex and marriage! How dare we insult people with what You say and expect.” [July 2017 AD]

Thus begins the Great Apostasy foretold by the apostle to the Gentiles?

the Day of the Lord will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…(2Thess 2:3-4)

The great falling away from faith in Christ Jesus has been gaining momentum for years. However, decisions and official declarations by the Church of England’s recent General Synod, the tricameral deliberative and legislative gathering of bishops, clergy and laity, means we could now regard the Great Apostasy as being ‘officially’ under way.

In my humble opinion, this synod may be the pivotal point for the Anglican communion moving into open schism. (We pray Her Majesty, as head of CoE, doesn’t endorse that decision for it would go against the personal witness of her Christmas broadcasts.)

In scriptural terms, the seed sown by satan amongst that sown by Jesus for the global harvest of souls is flowering and so the distinction between that ‘darnel’ and wheat is clearly noticeable. (This Middle-Eastern weed is indistinguishable from real wheat until ripe.) The ‘aha!’ light-bulb moment of “THIS IS ALL ABOUT TO BE FULFILLED” that had exploded in my head in 2009 as I searched for that parable in Matthew 13, is now coming true! (Hence my blogging about End-times.)

So, satan’s stooges beware! Sincerely repent, renounce and denounce satan and all its works. Turn from your wicked ways because Jesus’ harvesting angels will soon gather and burn you like rubbish before gathering the wheat of righteous souls for safe storage in His ‘barn’.

Many, many other scriptures spring to mind on this fundamental issue, especially where Jesus clearly implies not all Christians will go to heaven! HUH!!  We can’t choose our preferred ‘broad’ way when He instructs us to,

“Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. How narrow is the gate and confined is the way that leads to life, and there are few that find it…

“Not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven.

“Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name?’

“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me you who practise lawlessness!’.”(Matthew 6:13-14 and 21-23)

There’s also the Apostles’ teachings, especially the revelation Paul received and told his protege Timothy:

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared by a hot iron…” (1Tim 4:1-2)

WHAT’S HAPPENED?

The preceding was drafted last Thursday but withheld as the word John Kilpatrick gave about The Shaking of earth and heavens took precedence. Developments have since confirmed the necessity of its publication, so I’ll now finish and publish together with a pertinent re-blog.

I was following events as monitored by Revd Dr Gavin Ashden, Christian Legal Centre CEO Andrea William’s contre-temps in the Synod with the Archbishop of York, as well as scathing material on their highly dubious aspects by politico-religious blogger Adrian Hilton and associates/readers at ‘Archbishop Cranmer’, viz:

** As well as the above post’s excellent insights, Gavin Ashenden writes in-depth on this matter in Sin At Synod – How The Church Forebad Forgiveness, and I will re-blog his coverage of a media report on the Synod next.

SOME REACTIONS

In deep disgust ‘Cranmer’ pens a satirical item over Synod’s endorsement of a motion that Conversion Therapy (aimed at altering sexual orientation) be banned. In fact, he disparagingly implies Synod should go the whole hog, or as in my above title support satan’s aims, and rewrites its formal announcement (providing link thereto).:

Church of England Votes to Ban Religious Conversion:  ‘The…General Synod has backed a motion calling for a ban on the practice of Religious Conversion, aimed at altering a person’s religious orientation.

‘Members of the Church’s national assembly, which is holding its annual July sessions in York, voted to endorse a Memorandum of Understanding on Religious Conversion, signed by The Christian ‘Truth is One’ School of Universal Reconciliation and others condemning the practice….

The full motion agreed was: That this Synod: (a) endorse the Memorandum of Understanding on Religious Conversion in the UK of November 2015, signed by The Christian ‘Truth is One’ School of Universal Reconciliation and others, that the practice of Religious Conversion has no place in the modern world, is unethical, potentially harmful and not supported by evidence; and 3 (b) call upon the Church to be sensitive to, and to listen to, contemporary and diverse expressions of religious identity; (c) and call on the government to ban the practice of religious proselytism.’

[Definition: Conversion of, or attempt to convert, (someone) from one religion, belief, or opinion to another – Advocacy or promotion (a belief or course of action).]

Christian Concern took exception to the events, reporting Archbishop of York rejects the authority of the Bible and the teaching of the Church.:

‘During General Synod, Andrea Williams [of ‘House of Laity’] proposed an amendment inserting the words “as revealed in the Bible and the taught by the church” to a motion calling for politicians to “prioritise the common good of all people.”

‘Andrea spoke on the need for the Bible to inform our understanding of the common good. She also proposed another amendment to the motion calling for the protection of life, the promotion of marriage and family and the maintaining of Christian freedoms.

‘Both amendments were rejected by Synod, with the Archbishop of York John Sentamu replying: “If you’re going to serve the whole community please don’t limit our language…The Word became flesh and sadly we are now making it Word, Word and Word again. Resist the amendments.”

PERSONAL MUSINGS:

In mulling over these issues from the possible perspective of the Lord calling the CofE out of its ‘Lazarus grave’ (see 2014 post), a revivified church would be very different to what it was like and living as a very sick, terminally ill entity. This Synod could be part of what I foresaw 10 years previously of a rending of society’s rotten fabric as the Rock of Christ emerges for disciples to take a stand upon Him (as here).

That would mean a separation of righteous out of unclean: “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord” (2Cor 6:17), not an excommunication of heretics but a full-blown schism. Unless that is, Matthew 13’s parable is enacted beforehand by the physical removal of satan’s ‘plants’, or the Lord brings another Sovereign shaking!

Such ‘meanderings’ have since received confirmation through a prophetic word brought by Bill Jennings, published by UK Prophetic Words (and now posted as Shaking and Rebuilding the Church in the UK).

First, however; it’s important that readers be aware of the gravity of this situation; hence this overview. Next, we’ll examine how Synod’s and Parliamentarians’ actions fulfill End-times prophetic details given by Jesus and His apostle Paul…

Topic continues in:

THE SHAKING: watch for signs on earth and in the heavens

Although I don’t agree 100% with John Kilpatrick’s reasons for a pre-Tribulation ‘rapture’ of believers in Jesus Christ, some significant serendipity alerted me to pay very close attention to his latest message entitled Your Redemption Is Drawing Near. I’m amazed to discover upon transcribing some of its video that a particular time-stamp reinforces a personal ‘bridge over the Pond’!

WORDS OF WARNING TO THE WORLD

After bemoaning the dearth of good, regular teaching upon End-times throughout Western churches and the increasing ungodliness across American society and churches, John brings a profound, prophetic warning. His tone becomes increasingly sombre as he speaks more carefully and pausing often (see video link):

(at 2:10:50 mark) “I really believe that 2017 is pivotal; not just because of The Radiant Woman of Revelation 12 [RB: in which he refers to its astronomical manifestation in September]…and not just because it’s possible that this is a Jubilee year, nobody really knows, but there are indications...

(2:11:45) “One thing I can tell you is this: the Lord spoke to me a few weeks ago, two mornings in a row and He said, “The earth is marked for change”.

(2:12:00) “I heard it when I was coming out of sleep (pausing to wipe his brow) and the next morning when I was coming out of sleep I heard the very same voice and very same words: “The earth is marked for change”

“It so shook me I called a meeting that night, took my staff out to eat…and I told them at the end of the meal what I just told you – it doesn’t sound serious when I say it, but that’s because you didn’t hear the voice I heard! But whenever the Lord or Holy Spirit tells you that,  I wasn’t able to convey it like that. So you can’t tell what I felt – but I know the earth is marked for change.

“And that is not just the earth but is also the heavens – and the Holy Spirit has said to me there’s going to be such things begin to happen…it’s going to be so shaking to people before we get out of here, before the Lord comes to get us, there’s going to be so many things that’s going to shake people that, if you’re not forewarned, it’s going to shake you!

“You will remember my voice, you will hear my voice ring in your head a hundred times when things start happening and you’ll say, “He told us!”. I hope it brings you some comfort that I told you ahead of time… but you hear me; when things start happening there will be no more headlines of Russian collusion…no more talk of tampering with the election, all that won’t even be in the papers at all…I want to say one more thing.:

“I never really put two and two together ’til Friday as I was preparing my message – but because Donald Trump is president and not afraid of anyone he’s saying things most presidents would hold…and we need a president now who says what we need to hear, even if it’s insulting. So when he came out and said about ‘fake news’…yes, I began to realise I’ve been hearing a lot of fake news…There’s no collusion, there’s nothing to it, it’s all just hype..

“So now listen, listen, if the news media is reporting fake news and hype…and they’re holding back reporting things they need to report, and reporting things they don’t need to report; it all of a sudden dawned on me and the Holy Spirit said, 

“They will do the same things about the signs of My Coming – they will NOT report things that need to be reported that will shake the nations about the soon coming of Christ. They’ll hold it and talk about a bunch of nonsense”.

“And He said,

“My people will have to search it out and have to go to places of truth to get the truth because they won’t be able to hear it on the news any more!”

“You might not agree with that, but I’m ‘Donald Trump the Second’ up here today – I’m telling you things that you need to hear. I’m not afraid to tell you things you need to hear. I’ve got nothing to prove, I’m only trying to tell you things that will help you get to heaven…

“Don’t take for granted what I’m telling you about the heavens. I’m more concerned about that than I am other things because in 2009 the Lord gave me the prophetic acrostic R.E.S.U.R.R.E.C.T.I.O.N. – you remember? The one that stood out in my mind more than any other was the ‘S’ for ‘Signs’, and the Lord said there’s going to be signs in the heavens. And the Lord said to tell the people to warn them, because He said when the signs start happening it’s going to bring great fear on the earth!”

A VERY PERSONAL LEAD-IN

We watched that live-streamed service from Church of His Presence in the afternoon.  A few hours earlier at the morning service in Liphook, one of our ministers had encouraged us to come forward for a blessing for opening up,  or developing, our personal journey and calling in Jesus.

After a number of recent indications on how He’s been steering me since a young boy, I gained an insight into my mother’s preference for using my middle name – John. Homing into that, I recalled Apostle John was favoured by leaning upon Jesus’ chest, and subsequently by a visitation from which he recorded ‘the revelation of Jesus Christ’. So I briefly recalled His visitation to me one night in September 1989, as recounted in On a Trapdoor to Hell – Jesus Swoops to the Rescue.

Therefore, I was doubly intrigued a few hours later to hear pastor John start to teach upon the Book of Revelation and use that same description of John’s privileged place. Furthermore, the title of his talk is that of a scripture directly related to my encounter’s similarity to the Second Coming of the Lord. That verse appears in my late mother’s Missal for readings for The First Sunday in Advent, viz: ‘Lift up your heads because your redemption is at hand‘ (Luke 12:28) – see final part and illustration of Triple Validation…

YET it wasn’t until today that I discovered a THIRD connection in pastor John’s talk! It’s directly relevant to a personally relevant number referred to in those two earlier posts: 212 – the number of the house I lived in when a boy. AND those preceding links reveal earlier instances of such ‘serendipity’; that is, God-incidents!

In listening to the recording of pastor I’m ‘God-smacked’ by the indisputable fact that only when the recording has been playing for 2 hours 12 minutes does he start telling how he got warned upon awaking from sleep!!

Hmm, so we have something significant to contemplate and wait upon with the Lord -and those personal markers are telling me to pay attention because they validate His word to pastor Kilpatrick.  How about you, my reader, what do you think?

Veronica West: Brace for mighty tsunami wave of God’s glory and grace

TELL MY PEOPLE TO BRACE FOR THERE IS COMING A MIGHTY TSUNAMI WAVE OF MY GLORY AND GRACE THAT WILL SHAKE, SHIFT AND SIFT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”!

Last night I had a powerful dream where I was caught up in the Spirit realm. In the dream I seemed to be standing between the earthly realm and the heavenly realm, when out of the heavens came a loud voice saying, “TELL MY PEOPLE TO BRACE FOR THERE IS COMING A MIGHTY TSUNAMI WAVE OF MY GLORY AND GRACE THAT WILL SHAKE, SHIFT AND SIFT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”, as I heard these words suddenly a strong rushing Wind began to blow round about me and then I saw a mighty Tsunami Wave of liquid gold coming out of the heavens and breaking forth upon the earth. As I stayed watching in the dream suddenly I saw a multitude of Angels dressed in garments of pure white light swiftly descending upon the earth, as I drew a little closer I saw that the Angels carried swords in one hand and sickles in the other and then I heard these words, “Watch! For Now a mighty Tsunami Wave of My Glory and Grace now breaks forth upon the Nations of the earth. Watch! For Angels of the Harvest are now gathering and scattering, gathering and scattering, gathering and scattering”!

Suddenly the dream shifted and I found myself standing upon the earth, and again just as before a strong rushing wind began to blow round about me, then I heard a voice speak from heaven saying, “The nations rumble on like the rumbling of many waters, But I the Lord will rebuke them and they will flee far away, And be chased like chaff in the mountains before the wind, Or like whirling dust before a gale.

At that very moment I woke up suddenly and I was praying fervently in the Spirit when the Holy Spirit spoke to me saying, “Now is the Time, Watch! for the Whirlwind of My Spirit comes to sift and Shift the Nations of the earth”, immediately the Spirit quickened to me Isaiah 17, which says, “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.
2 “The cities of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks to lie down in, And there will be no one to frighten them.
3 “The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,And sovereignty from Damascus. And the remnant of Aram; They will be like the glory of the sons of Israel,” Declares the LORD of hosts.
4 Now in that day the glory of Jacob will fade, And the fatness of his flesh will become lean.
5 It will be even like the reaper gathering the standing grain, As his arm harvests the ears, Or it will be like one gleaning ears of grain. In the valley of Rephaim.
6 Yet gleanings will be left in it like the shaking of an olive tree, Two or three olives on the topmost bough, Four or five on the branches of a fruitful tree, Declares the LORD, the God of Israel.
7 In that day man will have regard for his Maker. And his eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel.
8 He will not have regard for the altars, the work of his hands, Nor will he look to that which his fingers have made, Even the Asherim and incense stands.
9 In that day their strong cities will be like forsaken places in the forest, Or like branches which they abandoned before the sons of Israel; And the land will be a desolation.
10 For you have forgotten the God of your salvation. And have not remembered the rock of your refuge. Therefore you plant delightful plants. And set them with vine slips of a strange god.
11 In the day that you plant it you carefully fence it in, And in the morning you bring your seed to blossom; But the harvest will be a heap. In a day of sickliness and incurable pain.
12 Alas, the uproar of many peoples Who roar like the roaring of the seas, And the rumbling of nations Who rush on like the rumbling of mighty waters!
13 The nations rumble on like the rumbling of many waters, But He will rebuke them and they will flee far away, And be chased like chaff in the mountains before the wind, Or like whirling dust before a gale.
14 At evening time, behold, there is terror! Before morning they are no more. Such will be the portion of those who plunder us. And the lot of those who pillage us.

Note; As I was praying concerning the dream shift where I found myself suddenly standing upon the earth the Holy Spirit showed me a mighty Tsunami Wave that is coming too in the natural realm, it will come as ‘suddenly and as swiftly and as unexpectedly as the Tsunami of His Glory and Grace. Furthermore I believe that it is no coincidence that Isaiah 17 should be quickened to me in the Year 2017, let us continue to Pray Always for Israel.

Mighty word of encouragement for Britain via David Noakes

As we know, David Noakes brought an accurate word in 2015 from the Lord about His urging Britain to come out of the EU (and the shaking of the latter), so I’m grateful to the managing editor for permission to reprint Prophetic Encouragement from yesterday’s Prophecy Today UK. It reiterates Dr Sharon Stone’s Clarion Call for England for 2014-16 and beyond about this spiritual battle being the way to victory. The word David delivers is introduced by Clifford Hill:

It is not just Christians who can see that the nation is in trouble. Everyone can see that things have not been going well in Britain recently. The terrorist attacks, the Grenfell Tower inferno, and the hung Parliament all confirm that something is wrong in the nation.

Many Christians know that as a nation we have rejected the word of God in many ways which has resulted in Britain being no longer under God’s cover of protection, prosperity and blessing.

‘Confusion’ is one of the signs of judgment upon a nation, according to Deuteronomy 28:20. But Jeremiah 18:7 reminds us that even when things go badly wrong, if we repent of our wrongdoing and ask for God’s help, things would quickly improve. Through Jeremiah God says:

If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.

God still speaks to us today so that we can understand what is happening and how he is working out his purposes. This enables us as Christians to speak to others, Christians and non-Christians, reassuring them of God’s love and his desire to bless the nation, restoring peace and prosperity.

The latest word received by my colleague David Noakes (we have worked together since 1984) brings this reassurance. We reproduce it below noting that we do not claim that modern prophecy carries the same authority as the Bible. But God does speak to those who are listening to him, although we express what we are receiving in our own human language and understanding. It is for each of our readers to weigh this prophecy.

Rev Dr Clifford Hill

PROPHETIC WORD, first given at East Grinstead (17 June 2017)

David Noakes:

Beloved, you are living in momentous days. These are truly the days of a turning point in the affairs of your nation. It is a time of my appointing. I have allowed you to go your own way but I have never let go of you.

There are many voices in your midst which are full of pessimism and I understand that if you look upon your circumstances, pessimism is often the outcome. But I want you to perceive as I perceive.

Beloved, when there is turmoil and upheaval, do not look upon it with dismay; do not look upon it with foreboding; do not look upon it with fear. But look upon it with eyes turned to me with a questioning heart: a heart questioning what your God is doing in the midst of it. For beloved, all these things taking place are under my hand. I have brought about a remarkable work in your nation in recent times. This is not accidental, nor is it sudden, but has come about at my appointed time.

I do not have accidents; I do not have coincidences; I do not have sudden unexpected events. I have appointed events, at appointed times, and I am the one who is seated in the heavens and does whatever He pleases. Do not lose heart, because I am in charge. My hand is on your nation and I have not given up my purposes for you.

I have blessed your nation in the past and truly you have been faithless; but beloved, I have remained faithful. Your enemy has done much to sow lies, to sow false doctrine, to try to bring down all that is good and all that is of God. But I have kept for myself a remnant. My Word remains true for all time and all eternity and I will fulfil my purposes.

This is a time of turmoil and upheaval because your adversary is in great rage and great fear. He is in great consternation that I will use your nation to tear his purposes apart. But that is exactly what I intend to do. I intend to bring his purposes crashing down. There will be turmoil and upheaval; there will be blood in the streets; there will be anxiety amongst those who do not know that God is in charge and do not understand what I am doing.

Beloved, there cannot be victory in war without war taking place; and war is indeed taking place, because I have joined battle. I have joined battle against the forces of darkness which desire to bring your nation to nothing and I have declared I will not have it so. My purposes for you are from all eternity. I have known exactly what I will do at this time. I have known exactly what I will do in the future and I purpose to glorify my name through your nation once again.

Therefore do not be disheartened. Do you think of yourself as being just a little flock? Truly there is only a small remnant who hold fast to My word. But beloved, continue to hold fast to my word and pray that the purposes that I have begun to reveal will come to fruition and fulfilment, and I will visit you afresh with my Spirit.

I will visit you afresh with my Spirit that you may be empowered: Not for your glory, but for Mine. Not to build empires but to build my Church. I desire also to visit you with my Spirit that you may be instruments in my hand to go into the fields which are ripe for harvest, and bring in a harvest; for there is a harvest waiting to be brought in.

There are many in fear and trepidation and utter confusion, and I want you to be a people who know their God and do exploits. I want you to be a people of compassion; not of judgement; not of condemnation. Judgement is mine, I will repay. But I ask you to be a people of love and concern; of compassion for the lost, and of deep desire that the truth should be brought to many who will understand it and be saved. For surely there are those whom you think are your enemies, who are longing for truth.

Do not be down-hearted, therefore. Do not be dispirited. Yes, I know all too well that you are surrounded by those who wish you ill. Beloved, do not heed them but look to your God who wishes you well. Look to your God who wishes them well. I desire a people who are willing to bless their enemies and to do good to those who speak evil about them.

As you do this they will see your light. Many will reject, but many will see the light in the darkness and will desire the only light they can see. For all their plans and schemes will have fallen to the ground and then they will turn to the only truth.

Do not give up therefore. Hold fast. Hold fast to Me. Hold fast to My Word. Hold fast in love and unity, to one another. Be loyal and faithful to each other. Forgive each other all offences and stand together, that as one you may show the character of your Lord and Saviour. Beloved, understand that I have not given up, and I say to you: do not give up either, but look to Me and hope in Me that I will do what I have planned.

Powerful word calling for prayer as the holy shaking continues

THE SHAKINGS ARE UPON LONDON. GOD WILL BRING A HOLY CHAOS – PRAY FOR LONDON AND THE UK

London, my beloved city, my heart aches for you! Do you not know, have you not heard, the Lord, He is the everlasting God! He is the hope of the Nations! How He longs to rise upon you with healing in His wings! He longs to restore the ancient ruins and raise up the former devastations. Oh London – beloved city! Wake up! Hearken unto the voice of the Lord! Return to Him! Return to Him while there is hope. For the shakings are coming, and are already upon you.

My people, who are called by my name, will you humble yourselves, and call out to me at this time? Will you cry out all the more? I long to forgive your sins and heal your land. Keep praying! Do not hold back. For surely I have heard your cries for your nation. Keep believing. Keep praying – for surely I am coming! Do you not perceive it? Even in the midst of chaos, and tragedy, I am humbling hearts. I am causing hearts to unlock. I am causing eyes to look up. I am restoring the fear of the Lord.

London – the City that is so proud of getting on with ‘business as usual’ will be brought to its knees in repentance. There will be no business as usual when I sweep through your streets and dwellings like a flood. For I will bring a Holy Chaos to your Capital. You will know when it comes. Everything will come to a standstill when I come in my Power and turn everything upside down.

All the plans of man will be laid waste. People will rush to the churches looking for the people of God, as they rushed to Joseph in the time of famine. The people will come looking for bread! They will leave their desks and their computers and their board rooms and will come begging for bread. You must make sure there is enough bread in the storehouse! The bread they will need is my word. They will need to hear the wisdom of the people of God. They will come searching for truth.

Even now I am whetting appetites. I am stirring up a hunger and thirst in the lost and the broken. They will grow weary of the world having no answers. They will grow desperate for a light in the darkness. But first the shakings are going to come. Pray for mercy. Pray for a spirit of repentance to come quickly. Pray for the government to be humbled. For I WILL bring beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, a garment of praise instead of a spirit of heaviness. I am the Lord! I alone can do these things.

Footnotes:
  1. Angela is known to me through my contacts on this blog and this came via UK Prophetic Words whilst reading about yesterday’s tragic ‘towering inferno’ in London and my preparing to blog about Tim Farron ‘coincidentally’ stepping down as leader of the ‘Liberal’ Democratic party and standing up for his faith in Jesus Christ – well done brother.
  2. Maybe the Lord is teaching me a grim kind of discernment for prayer in view of two ‘God-incidental’ references: 1st – the Great Fire of London (as at foot of this post on the spiritual battle raging over Britain); 2nd – my memory of the brooding murderous menace over Manchester area (at start of this post) a few hours before children and parents were murdered at a concert in the Manchester Arena.
  3. Significantly, the last item was on a “Two-Minute Warning” from the Lord!!!
