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

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

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

Day 335 – November 30th

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

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

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

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

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

Selah!

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

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

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

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

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

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

I prophesy,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • I WILL SEE THE HAND OF GOD MOVING SUDDENLY AND SEVERELY IN THE EARTH, FOR HIS GLORY HE IS BRINGING ABOUT A GREAT SEPARATION IN THE NATIONS.
  • I POSITION MYSELF TO RECEIVE DIVINE HEALING, HOPE AND DIVINE RESTORATION TO EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE
  • I THANK AND PRAISE GOD IN ADVANCE FOR A GREAT MANIFESTATION OF THE HARVEST THAT IS COMING TO MY FAMILY, COMMUNITY AND NATION.
  • BY FAITH I RECEIVE A FRESH INFILLING OF HIS SPIRIT; I ALIGN MYSELF FOR GREATER INSIGHT AND ILLUMINATION OF THE HIDDEN MYSTERIES OF HEAVEN FOR GREATER KINGDOM INFLUENCE AND IMPACT.
  • I DECLARE THAT THE FIRES OF HIS GLORY WILL REIGNITE, REVIVE AND REAWAKEN MY HEART TO THE SPIRIT OF POWER, MIGHT, WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, COUNSEL AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD.
  • I DECREE THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS AND THE CHILDREN IN MY FAMILY WILL RETURN TO ONE ANOTHER AND BOTH WILL BE FULLY RESTORED AND HEALED IN JESUS NAME.
  • I WILL NOT FEAR THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS THAT COME BUT I WILL HOLD FAST TO THE TRUTH THAT HE HAS ALREADY WON THE BATTLE FOR ME AND I WILL SEE A MIGHTY MANIFESTATION OF EVEN GREATER TRIUMPHS AND DIVINE TURNAROUNDS IN EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE.
  • I PROPHESY 2018 WILL BE A YEAR WHERE EVERYTHING WILL ‘S H I F T AND CHANGE’ TO THE GLORY OF GOD.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

UK Nationwide Prophetic Circuit Messages – #1

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

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

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

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

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

May He Bless You and Keep you,

Leisa Ebere, 26th October 2017

RB Footnotes:
  • I will tell another time of the ‘God-incidental’ confirmation I’ve had about this work as well as instances of strong opposition indicative of action by the enemy of our souls. Therefore, I rejoice greatly in being honoured to serve Him this way.

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

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

IT IS TIME FOR THE HOUSE OF CARDS TO COME DOWN

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

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

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

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

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

Vida Caplin, Saturday 28th October 2017

PS 1: Blog’s facebook remarks 31 Oct:

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

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

Charlie Shamp prophesies on the UK’s Awakening – #3

From part #2 – An hour later, after bathing in the Spirit’s presence, Charlie speaks about the power and glory of what the Lord’s doing through Capstone church and then says (from 2hr 51min):

LONDON AND ENGLAND – SHAKINGS AND RUMBLINGS OF AN AWAKENING

“I am telling you tonight, under the power of the prophetic, that there is a performance that’s coming across this city of London, that the hand of God is coming upon you, London. Not just East London, but I am telling you the ENTIRE CITY! The hand of the Lord. The hand of the Lord. And you say, ‘What’s the purpose? What’s the point? What’s the point of tarrying in an upper room?’ It’s because you have been HOLDING THE NATION IN YOUR HEART; OVERSHADOWING EVEN THE CITY, AND THE LORD IS GOING TO STRETCH OUT HIS HAND. He’s going to stretch out his hand and begin to release supernatural performances, Kingdom demonstrations, supernatural releases of the Spirit of God, on the street corners. And…in witches covens, and witch covens will bow their knee to Jesus Christ! Yeah…Drug dealing and prostitution will shut down by the power of God…I’m telling you, there is a hungry body that is going to taste and see the Kingdom of God like never before…

“Lift your hands, I’m prophesying over England:
Even Psalm 68:8 – The earth shook. the Heavens also dropped at the presence of the Lord. Even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God in Israel.

“There is a prophetic power that’s going to come in this hour that is going to begin to RIP OPEN WHOLE REGIONS. Whole regions are going to begin to receive the fire, the oil and the glory. The fire, the oil and the glory. The FOG of GOD (part #1 refers). And there’s even going to be; the Lord told me over the next several years there are going to be shakings. There are going to be shakings that are going to take place, even across London and across England. Shakings – shakings across this nation in the physical, in the physical. The Lord is going to shake the natural earth. I am not talking about massive or major earthquakes; I am talking about shakings that are going to be sizeable. People won’t be harmed, but there will be sizeable shakings and rumblings of an awakening that is taking place across the nation. I prophesied this in 2015 where I saw that there was going to be shakings and rumblings. And I’m telling you, the awakening is happening even now. And the presence of God, as it comes down, the earth is going to begin to shake; the shaking; the shaking, the shaking. There is a shaking that is going to happen. And it’s going to be a sign of the awakening; there’s going to be a sign of the awakening of the Spirit of God across the land. He is going to begin to awaken people out of religious churches. He is going to cause them to move out of the dead, dying body and move in to the living Kingdom. He is going to cause them to get out of the place of sitting in the pew, and moving into the performance of the Spirit of God, and the shakings and rumblings are going to happen across England. There’s going to be shakings. There’s going to be shaking and rumblings that are going to transpire. And it will be a sign of the presence of God dropping down on this nation.

“Even in the City of London, I see that there’s going to be a shaking, a shaking. And it will be a sign of God’s hand coming down, His presence dropping down, stretching out His hand to perform signs and wonders and miracles. Not through just one; not through just two or three; not just through one or two or three; but the Lord is going to begin to move upon the many. God is releasing an Army, an Amy that will carry the frequency of heaven, the worship and praise and adoration of the Kingdom and they will begin to move into demonstration of power, and the land is going to shake, the earth is going to move. It will be a shock to many.

“What God is going to do in awakening in the UK is going to shock Europe. What God is going to do in these fiery islands is going to shock, is going to shock, even Europe, into a place that they will not be satisfied with humanistic teaching and religion and tradition any longer, but they’ll rise up and recognise that there’s more; there’s more; there’s more; there’s more; there’s more, there’s more.

“What’s going to come out of the UK is going to begin to spark something even in the United States of America, and cause even greater, in a sense, if I could say, a jealousy, a jealousy, but a holy jealousy, that says, “You can’t have it without us. That says you can’t just have it in the UK – we want it over here! And I am telling you THE FIRE IS GOING TO JUMP, IT’S GOING TO JUMP, IT IS GOING TO JUMP BACK AND FORTH, BACK AND FORTH, BACK AND FORTH, for the Lord is CREATING AN ARC BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES and the UNITED KINGDOM. HE IS UNITING THEM IN THE SPIRIT. HE IS BUILDING AN ARK OF HIS PRESENCE AND POWER.”

Amen.

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).

A Reminder: Mark made his notes for the session available to attendees at Church of His Presence and a downloadable pdf copy of them is available 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’:
