I was praying over the world and especially the UK (where I live) today so when I opened my bible on Isaiah 23 today I was amazed. This verse particularly stood out to me “Pass ye over to Tarshish; wail, ye inhabitants of the coast.”. Perhaps this is because as I am from near the coast. However, it resonates with me and spoke to me. I felt it is a reminder to all of us to cry out to God with all of our heart and soul in order for Him to move here.
I had read before that Tarshish is actually a reference to the British isles so I thought I would do a little research into this. I found this taken from ‘the Oxford bible church website’ The young lions of Tarshish are a reference to the colonies that emerged from Britain and Europe – including the USA. Out of the Merchants of Tarshish came the colonial Empires. The most successful of these was Great Britain. The symbol of Great Britain is a lion. That symbol exists to this day and no other empire had more young lions than Great Britain. I also found many references to Tarshish being a maritime nation so this is a particular hint that it could be the British Isles.
I was amazed because I had just previously asked for a word about the UK and out of the entire bible and all of the chapters and verses God pointed me to this chapter. I felt very encouraged. I know God is about to move here. I wanted to share this with you to encourage you.
Finally, it brings me to this verse, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”. 2 Chronicles 7:14.
There is great hope for us all!
God bless you 🙂
I have been praying quite a lot recently about our government for wisdom and discernment. Thus, it was quite interesting when two days ago Prime Minister Theresa May announced her surprise decision to hold a general election on 8th June (522 to 13 votes). This was completely unexpected but a verse that has been playing in my mind is 1 Corinthians 1:27 “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong”. He does this to show his glory and this verse is as relevant today as it was back when Jesus lived. I believe God has a lot of surprises for us coming in this new time.
Regarding the soon to be election I want to share a few things with which to pray over. Firstly, at the start of this year I really felt that we would have a strong man leading our country and this I posted previously on my blog. This was confirmed by another word I read on another site. Now this could be about the future or it could be relevant to this election. Actually I believe it will be relevant to this election. You see God is aligning our politicians even if it doesn’t seem that way at times.
I was praying yesterday about a new future leader and I heard the name Boris Johnson. It could be for the near future or for the distant future but I believe somehow this man is significant and that he needs our prayers. Now I don’t know much about him but if this is the case then we need to pray and also align ourselves. A friend of mine told me there was another prophetic word about him so I will search for that.
Now I needed some confirmation so I prayed to God that if this was the case I would ask my son who the next Prime minister would be and he would give me the same answer. I prayed and kept feeling the same thing. I then asked my 5 year old son this morning and he said straight away ‘Boris Johnson”! I was not expecting this at all. He could have said anyone. He has heard his name on the TV before but there is no way it’s just nothing because this is too random as I didn’t mention his name at all to him beforehand.
Though, please don’t take this as 100% as I am not saying I have got it right because I know we as humans sometimes think we have heard God but it’s actually just us so it could be that in this case. I could be completely off on the wrong train so please correct me if I am!:) Also as I stated it might be just that he is a very significant person in the scheme of things so please pray for him anyway. Also ask God to show you who he would wish you to vote for. Give God your vote because that is the most important thing. So for example if the person you voted for doesn’t win you can say “God your will be done” because remember it’s all about Him. Don’t let pride get a hold of you and do your seeking in the secret place spending time in God’s presence.
Finally, whatever happens declare only good things over our nation and over the world-don’t listen to the news and the doom and gloom. Our words make a difference so whatever happens pray this pray “your will be done on earth (also insert country) as it is in Heaven”.
God bless you
I found this word from Veronica West given on 11 April 17. I believe it is very significant now.
In this hour I hear these words coming out of the heavens, “Prisons SHAKE, Governments SHAKE, Financial systems SHAKE, Schools SHAKE, Military forces SHAKE, Courts and legislatures SHAKE, Everything on earth SHAKE until there is no foundation left but I the Lord.”
It is NOT the devil who is shaking everything. The whole world is being SHAKEN AND SHIFTED by the voice of the VICTORIOUS CHRIST. HIS GLORY IS RISING in power upon the Earth, He is speaking a word to SHAKE AND SHIFT all things.
A GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IS NOW UPON US…!

Word from Veronica West 11/04/2017
I learnt a new word today from listening to Lance Wallnau. The word is ‘convergence’. It means something has got to come together in your destiny (an intersecting). It is the technical definition where you are engaged in the role which empowers you to do what you were created to do before you were born.
A word which has been used a lot in the church and in Christian circles was destiny. However, convergence has a more resonating and deeper meaning than even destiny itself.
If you become a Christian you must become a disciple, then you become a disciple, after that you seek your destiny, and finally you must step into convergence. This is essential if you want to fulfil that which was ordained for you before the beginning of time. Convergence however is not only about our own individual destiny but rather it is about affecting our communities, towns, cities and nations. Destiny is great and it can change your life knowing what your own personal destiny is but convergence allows God to work in us in such a way that we cannot help but affect everyone around us.
My prayer is that you will all step into convergence.
I felt something in my spirit when I was praying last week for the government of the UK and for Theresa May. I believe she has been placed there for a reason and I pray for her each day and send angels to give her God’s word and truth.
However, I also felt it was important to pray and declare for the next prime minister of the UK who I believe God told me will be a man. I felt it very strongly and then a few days later I saw a prophetic word which said the same thing! I love it when God confirms stuff! I now know that I MUST pray and declare for him. The other prophesies said he would be a strong leader which is exactly what I felt before. This also drew me to the conclusion that if this is the case which I believe it is then there will also be strong opposition to this strong leader.
We should all be on our knees declaring only God’s truth and protection over our land because our words have so much power in them. I don’t know who this future prime minister will be (and we certainly should continue to pray and declare for Theresa May) but I believe if we start decreeing over his life starting now then great great things can happen.
I felt I should share this so I hope this encourages you all. God bless
I would like to take the time to discuss some Hebrew numbers and years and what they mean for us.
Next year is Hebrew year 5778 (Chet) Chet being the letter of life and wisdom. It also means ‘time in community’. It is considered the doorway of light from Heaven and it also represents new beginnings. I believe that we have a hint of how things could turn out next year and beyond by looking at the Hebrew calendar, looking at history and most importantly by asking God himself. Of course God never does the exact same thing twice but history does go in cycles and it does repeat itself in many ways. When we look at history we can take some useful hints and lessons. 500 years ago the Reformation took place. This was the Hebrew year 5278 (1717). Researching Hebrew Gematria is essential because Hebrew is God’s language. God speaks through numbers (as well as in other ways) as Jesus often spoke through riddles. However, he said ‘he who has ears to hear let him hear’ (Matthew 11:5).
In that year we see the start of something new. When Martin Luther pinned his theses to the door he was only a vessel for something bigger to come. Chet is the symbol of new beginnings and a doorway of light from Heaven. We can see how this light penetrated and led people back into a realisation that Christianity is all about having a personal relationship with God and that you cannot buy your way into Heaven. It seems rather obvious but back then it was considered very innovative and heretical for many to have these ideals. Where religion was completely controlled by the church the Reformation allowed people to have autonomy and work out their own beliefs. It says in the bible ‘work out your salvation with fear and trembling’ (Philippians 2:12). This permitted people to come into relationship to God the Father through Christ Jesus.
By looking at this year I want to show you a glimpse of what may come in the year 5778. This means the Hebrew year starting in September 2017-September 2018. I believe we are about to see something new. I cannot say exactly what as God never does the exact same thing twice however I believe the veil between earth and heaven will become ever thinner and many will see and hear the supernatural. Their senses will become more sensitive to the spiritual realms (I am talking about both the darkness and the light). I believe there will be opposition but God will give great wisdom to those that follow Him. It will also be a year that many will come into life with Him, those who have been living in great darkness.
Whatever happens in the following year we need to put our armour on because with a greater level of glory comes a greater level of warfare. We need to revive our senses and feed our spiritual bodies. We must have wisdom also about what we are feeding into our souls as we will not be useful warriors if we are filled with darkness. Let’s get ready for a great year. Why not even celebrate the Jewish new year with a party celebrating what God is doing and welcoming Him into the Earth. (September 20th-September 22 2017).
Let’s be ready to step into that doorway of light.
I was fascinated by reading the news about China the other day. I have always loved China. When I was a little girl growing up in the countryside I must say there weren’t many Chinese people however I was always finding myself drawn to people from different nationalities. There was one Chinese family at that time in our town and I remember them introducing me to their culture. I also read Gladys Aylwood’s biography and felt touched. As I went into higher education I found myself becoming friends with some girls from Hong Kong and after I finished school I went with a friend to visit Hong Kong. I had a wonderful time there and fell in love with the culture. However, I always wanted to visit China for real. I got the opportunity to go and live there in 2012.
While I was there I saw many different parts of the Chinese culture. The main culture that we associate with China actually is related to the Hans people. I also had the chance to meet people from other minority groups too and learn about their customs. Many of these indigenous people groups have often been marginalised and have suffered terrible human rights abuses under the communist Chinese government. It is certainly much more relaxed than it used to be in many ways. Nonetheless many people face great persecution in China. One of these groups is Christians. I attended an international church in Beijing and I had to show my foreign passport in order to enter. I felt sad knowing that I was doing something many Chinese people can never do, worship freely. Communism brought so much hardships in the former years for the average Chinese person. Many accounts of life show that people had to drink their own urine in order to survive. Times were hard, many died and if you showed the smallest part of resistance you were sent to jail or worse.
Now if you are a Christian the reigns have been loosened a little so to speak however churches must be registered under government approval. They must not preach on certain areas and they must be strictly regulated by the government. They are called the three-self churches. Until recently if you wanted to preach on the Holy Spirit and be free in your worship you had to attend an underground church whose members were highly persecuted.
This brings me to the news that I read:
A pastor named Duan told a news source that God is now moving in a powerful way in these state controlled churches. Topics like healings, miracles, signs and wonders are becoming more mainstream and not every sermon is vetted by the government. Now something different is happening in the government approved churches, there is growth. In the same way that many were drawn to the underground churches many are now meeting God in the state churches! God is doing something wonderful in China, something that for decades people would never have dreamed of. I believe however that this is only a preparation for the future, a future where God is going to move not only in China but throughout this entire world.
*If you want to read a real account about life for a Chinese Christian then Brother Yun’s story is fascinating and moving.
