Sifting

Thank you Tony for this helpful ‘gathering’ of facts relating to Jesus’ parable on the wheat and tares – tap/click link for previous on this basic New Testament aspect of eschatology (End-times teaching).

My Dreams and Visions

Before the process of harvesting the wheat the wheat any tares are separated. This is what I believe to be happening now.


The first step in the process of harvesting wheat is to loosen the chaff from the edible grain, which is called threshing. The way it was done was to spread the wheat onto a floor made from stone, or tamped earth and to beat it with a flail


Winnowing iswhere the loosened chaff is removed from the grain. The way of doing this is to throw the grain in the air, where the lighter chaff is blown off by even a decent breeze. The heavier grain falls back to the ground below.

The final step is ‘sifting’ and its purpose is toseparate. The sifting occurred once the wheat had been gathered in and winnowed. The wheat was gathered up off the floor…

Prophetic words and vision of pruning in church prior to harvest

These words, and ones received by others, continue this year’s emphasis upon the parable of ‘wheat and tares’ (as here and here) and are shown in chronological order. They’re published courtesy of UK Prophetic Words and contributors and, as usual, are to be weighed with the Lord :

A SHORT SEASON OF PRUNING THE DEAD WOOD AND THEN THE SEASON OF HARVEST

Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven”

The Lord says, “The season of preparation is almost gone. The season of ploughing and planting is almost gone. The season of seeding is almost gone. The season of reaping, of harvest, of gathering in is almost upon you. But first,” says the Lord, “There is a short season of sharpening and pruning! It is time for Me to prepare My sickle to cut out the good wheat from the bad wheat. For My axe to cut the roots of the non-productive trees – those that have blossomed for years, giving every appearance of fruit, but bearing nothing! After that,” says God, “I will open My barns for the harvest to be brought in. 

“Did I not tell you that I would start by pruning all the dead wood? Did I not warn you that the dead wood will be thrown on the fire? You have talked about this for years. You have spoken My Word many times. Why are you shocked when I tell you that I meant every word I spoke to My servants the prophets?

“The season of ease, the season of lukewarm, the season of unpreparedness is over! Let the season of sharpening, of pruning, of shedding the dead wood begin!” says the Lord God Almighty.

A VISION REGARDING THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND

This is not a word I give lightly; we need to pray!!

At Capstone Church last night the Lord took me into a vision.

I saw in front of me a beautiful old English oak tree; its trunk was wide and its roots spread all over the nations.

As I looked, I could see the branches of one side of this tree reached up to the sky.

But on the other side, I saw a large old branch; it was old and thick but I could see it was bending towards the ground. Then I saw that many brambles were reaching up from the ground and pulling it down. This continued for some time until I heard an almighty crack!

I then looked and saw this beautiful old oak had been split in half; the old branch was now fully on the ground and, quickly, bramble grew round the branch. As this happened the branch grew black and died, yet because of all the bramble it looked like it had many leaves. But it was not the tree branch that lived, it was the brambles and thorns that did.

As a looked, I saw the other half of this old tree struggled to live for a short time, but then out of the break, new fresh branches began to grow, with fresh new leaves.

I asked the Lord the meaning of the vision. He said:

“The tree you see is the Church of England. It has spread and flourished across the earth and many of its branches reach up to me.

“The old branch you saw is a branch that has become more and more entangled with this world and its fallen and perverted ways; in its desire to reach out and be understood, it has become compromised and entangled and pulled down. This will continue until there is a fracture; at this point a whole section of the church will fully fall away into the world. On the surface it will appear to be alive, but its life will be death.

“What’s left will be shaken and for a short time it will struggle to live, but then out of the break new life shall come forth.”

Simon Braker, 19th September 2017

Simon is founder of School of the Spirit, Leicester, and operates in the office of a Prophet. He’s been actively involved in equipping and raising up prophetic ministers both in the UK and overseas for over 20 years and is part of the senior leadership of Holy Trinity Church, Leicester.

Footnotes:
  • These words are in line with subsequent developments (as in yesterday’s reblog and elsewhere known to me) since my musing upon the schismatic effect of July’s synod in the Church of England.
  • How does Simon’s vision relate to the word received at the Ffald-y-Brenin retreat centre in 2014 about the Lord calling the CofE out of Lazarus grave?  That Gospel story involves the removal of cloth-strips associated with death, and is thus similar to this vision of a decaying, dead branch that will fall off the revived body.

Prophetic word to weigh: “A great and violent shaking is now taking place…”

“Friends”, Veronika West addresses her readers, “I have been led by the Lord to fast for the next 14 days. Please know that I will be praying for you all and if there is something that Father desires me to share as a matter of urgency I will do so; however, I will not be posting daily as I usually do.” (Posted on Facebook 8th Sept.)

One such item of urgency, as well as calls to intercede for US and against terrorism in UK, was published early yesterday and reiterates earlier words from the Lord:

“HIS SPIRIT IS COMING SUDDENLY, SWIFTLY AND SEVERELY TO SHIFT, SIFT, SEPARATE AND SCATTER”!

I hear the Spirit say, “Tell My People to BE STILL AND TO FEAR NOT! For a GREAT AND VIOLENT SHAKING IS NOW TAKING PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“Watch! FOR THIS WILL BE A TIME OF GREAT TURMOIL AND TRIBULATIONS. Listen! FOR THE WHOLE OF CREATION IS GROANING FOR AN INVASION OF MY GLORY AND POWER AND FOR THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD IN THE EARTH.

“Open your eyes and See! For SUDDEN, SWIFT AND DIVINE CHANGE AND TRANSFORMATION IS NOW BEING BIRTHED IN THE EARTH“, says the Spirit of the Living God.

“Watch! For I have overturned the SANDS OF TIME and Now My governing hand goes forth with greater power, acceleration and momentum in this hour to SHIFT, to SIFT, to SEPARATE and to SCATTER. Yes!! WATCH! FOR I THE LORD OF HEAVEN’S ARMIES WILL ACT FOR YOU IN THUNDER AND EARTHQUAKES, IN THE WHIRLWIND, IN STORMS THAT RAGE AND IN THE CONSUMING FIRES THAT BURN“, says God.

“My Beloved Listen and Pay Attention!! KEEP WATCH AND PRAY IN THIS HOUR, FOR THE SPIRIT AND POWER OF ELIJAH NOW GOES FORTH UPON THE EARTH TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN BACK TO THEIR FATHERS AND THE DISOBEDIENT TO THE WISDOM OF THE JUST, TO MAKE READY A PEOPLE PREPARED FOR THE LORD.

“YES! For surely My Spirit is now moving Suddenly, Swiftly and Severely in the Nations of the earth, Watch! For My hand has taken hold of the Nations to SHAKE loose every false foundation, to SIFT the wheat from the chaff and to SEPARATE the goats from the sheep. Have I not said, ‘I Shall Arise and SCATTER My enemies’?”, says God.

“My Sons and Daughters, Behold the Time has begun for a Great Spiritual Awakening is now taking place upon the Earth; do you see it?”, For Even now My Spirit goes forth in the Mighty Whirlwinds and in the Earthquakes to Shift and Realign the boundaries of all Nations, My Spirit goes forth as an unquenchable and devouring Fire to Purify and Sanctify, My Spirit goes forth as Unstoppable Rivers to Cleanse every defiled and impure thing in the land”, says the Spirit of God.

“Watch! As My Spirit now goes forth over the Nations and Kingdoms of the Earth to Uproot and Tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to Build and to plant. For I am the Great Redeemer the Holy One of Israel that comes in Great Power, Strength and Might in this hour to Reset, to Renew, to Recreate, to Restore, to Revive, to Rebuild and to Replenish”, says God.

Selah!

Angelic warning: not all ‘Christians’ will enter the kingdom of heaven!!

Credit: Prophetic Art of James Nesbit (tap for link)

This account by Chris Bennett strongly reinforces the scripture quoted in my warning in Synod sides with satan to apostates within the Church of England and other churches (emphases mine):

AN ANGELIC VISITATION WITH AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR THE CHURCH

“So far – no further!” I heard the cry. It was repeated, “So far – no further!” I looked around and I saw him. An angel with sword drawn standing behind a line he had drawn in the sand.

“Tell God’s people, a line has been drawn in the sand this day. It is time for the shaking to begin in the Church. It is time for the people of God to stand up and be counted. The Lord has drawn a line in the sand and those who continue to deny Him shall be left behind.”

“What do you mean?” I asked him, “There are so many ways to deny the Lord. Please be specific.”

“Those who talk a good talk but whose walk falls short of their talk!” he replied. “Those who persistently and knowingly sin with no sign of repentance. Those who knowingly condemn others for doing what they themselves have never stopped doing. Those with a strong religious spirit who continually call others to repentance yet who continue to sin themselves.”

“What is their fate?” I asked.

“They shall hear those dreadful words, “Away from Me. I never knew you!” They will protest but in vain. Their fate will be sealed!”

My mind went to scripture, Matthew 7:21-23

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”

I turned to the angel again and he said,

“It’s all there in God’s Word. The warning has always been there, but so many have either ignored it or they have not believed it. The Lord is a just God. He is merciful too when His people listen to His Word, and when they obey Him. He loves every single one but not every single one has even thought about His will, rather than their own. This is why there has to be a line in the sand. Thus far – no further!”

The vision faded – warning given and received.

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

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 Biltz’ 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, Spirit-inspired documents of the Christian church – Apostle Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians!

So let me draw your attention to the points Mark makes, as in Ernest Hay’s video extract 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. I suggest you note his references to significant feasts and start of month dates in Jewish calendar and points I particularly want to highlight may be heard from these time marks:

  • 0:46:00 – astronomical mechanism of eclipses and lunar basis of God’s calendar
  • 0:48:45 – ratios of moon : sun size = earth-moon : earth-sun distances = 1:400
  • 0:49:40 – archaic form of Hebrew letter ‘tav’ is ‘X’ with numerical value of 400
  • [‘tav’, means ‘sign, mark, signal or monument’; so sun/moon ratio means signs!]
  • 0:54:00 – total eclipse over eastern Ottoman Empire on 21 Aug 1914, (1st Elul)
  • 0:56:00 – 1st Elul 21 August 2017 solar eclipse path of totality 70 miles wide
  • 0:56:34 – unusually will be over land and across America – first since 1776!
  • 0:57:00 – X-shape of paths of today’s eclipse and on 1st Nisan in 7 years (2024)
  • 0:59:20 – astronomical location of today’s eclipse is in constellation Leo
  • 1:00:00 – the alignment of planets on 23rd Sept in Virgo matches Rev 12 ‘woman’
  • 1:04:05 – UN’s annual International Day of Peace inaugurated 11 Sept 2001
  • 1:04:30 – dates changed to 21st September with different theme each year
  • 1:04:55 – for first time in 15 years Day of Peace falls on Rosh Hashanah
  • 1:05:20 – the theme for 2017-18 is 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 with a new moon, some question Mark’s statement of this eclipse being at the start of Elul.  The month is reckoned from the time the first sliver of crescent moon is sighted from Jerusalem and Mark has posted a 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).

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.”

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.) A revelatory “THIS IS ALL ABOUT TO BE FULFILLED” had exploded in my head in 2009 as I searched for that parable – now, it’s about to come true!!

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…
