A Day to Remember

12th November 2017 March of Remembrance

As I walked into the exposed and blustery town looking out onto the open sea looking to find the little parade my eyes were stunned to see the sight of at least one third of the town stood in grand formation with their majestic flags flying in the wind. I was welcomed into line by two great and tremendous Union Jack flags moving in the air. Perhaps I am an emotional person but as I found a place in line I felt my eyes watering and I wasn’t even sure why. There was a level of solemnity in the atmosphere but also solidarity as we stood there anxiously waiting for the start. More and more people joined onto the back of the line every one of them wearing their poppies, little red specks of hope creating a floating field. I know without a doubt that I had never expected so many people to be there. I knew in my heart that every one of them had made the willing choice to be out there on the seafront in the cold to remember and respect. As we started marching, I felt God’s presence there as the flags blew signalling for men, women and children of all ages to follow behind. I felt united to the people around me and with smiles we made our way to the windy beach. Everywhere we walked there were people wearing poppies clapping, waving and smiling, many of whom joined in behind. We finally reached a high point with a grandiose view of the open sea where the wreaths were to be placed and everyone was to observe the two minutes silence. The land seemed to go quiet at 11 am even the gulls seemed to stop their screeching for a short time. People came out of their homes and stood there in silence and reverence not just for those who died before us, but those who give their lives each day but most importantly to remember the freedom that was bought and could so easily be taken away again. Perhaps it was this new found knowledge of the fact that freedom in today’s society is being taken away (and not in a gradual manner at that), maybe it was a reaction to the current Labour leader when he said ‘we have nothing to remember’, or maybe just an inert sense of respect suddenly placed in them from a heavenly realm. I am certain God had his hand on every person in my town when it went silent last week and I stood there remembering but also praying that God would implant something of himself into each of these people. And to my surprise prayers were read and heads were bowed, hymns were sung and unity was in the air. And as we entered back into the town received by crowds of people in red scarves and wearing poppies cheering and smiling standing in respect on the road side I knew without a doubt that God had answered my prayers.

 

I pray that this encourages you because this is what I felt as I stood there last Sunday. I felt that God’s spirit was there and that it touched many people consciously or not. I also felt that the land was singing God’s praises and the flags were flying as a sign. I know it was a march that brought people together in unity and it was also very British too in the sense that people seemed to be unashamed of their nationality and were proud of their town and country and its great legacy. I know that whatever happens in the spiritual sometimes takes time to manifest in the natural but mark my words I am certain we will see something great happen very very soon.

What Will Revival Look Like?

I just thought I would write down some of my thoughts here. Because we have just stepped into a new time threshold and now it’s God’s time to move I was thinking about what this next move of God will look like:

Something that kept coming into my mind was that God is going to use those that society says will never be used and are useless. When I heard this I was instantly excited in my spirit because I know so many people who have been told by society that they are not worth a penny. I know God holds their worth and they are more precious than diamonds. I was trying to picture it in my mind. I saw people from all tribes and tongues. I saw worship in church in many different languages. I was reminded of a time at New Wine when some Masai warriors worshipped on the stage. Oh my goodness one of the best moments in my life. Another moment was when I was at International Gateway camp in Hong Kong and each nation did a song and dance on stage on a different night. There was wonderful worship, complete strangers holding hands and singing. Most of all was the forgiveness. At one point a Japanese girl got onto the stage followed by her group with tears streaming down their cheeks and begged for forgiveness from the Chinese. A couple of Chinese jumped up and ran to the stage followed by about 50 (all of them there) and they gave the Japanese group hugs which lasted a very long time. It was an emotional but joyful time. I will always remember that. That I think is how church will be. Nobody will be in need and people will never feel alone. People who have been abused, even those who have attacked others (but repented), many former Muslims (especially those who hated Christians most-I am reminded of Paul here), and those who currently belong to some certain politically correct movements who hate, hate, hate and who at this current time you would look at them and think “how on earth will God use someone like that to bring his kingdom on Earth?” will all not only be a part of this next movement but they will be leaders and many yes will be persecuted but God’s power will be shown through them because, “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little”. (Luke 7:47 KJV). I am so excited. So don’t listen to the gloom and doom because it’s time for God to have some room!!:)

 

God bless you all and may the Host of Heaven and the Holy Spirit be with you 🙂

A Holy Storm

While I was praying today (Oct 15th 2017) I received this word. I wrote it as I received it and did not change any words.

 

Like a rushing wind I will come, a gentle breeze within the trees, barely noticed by the many but only by those who are actively seeking it out and then a silence. Suddenly, a gust and then a silence and then a gust and people will say, “he is here. He has come”> But a silence will come. Then more gusts until a storm brews but it will only be the start. My people have no clue what they pray for when they pray, “your kingdom come”.  Do they really think that when the God of all creation who made the heavens and the Earth meets this dirty and stained world tarnished with sin it’ll be clean? No my dear child. They will be flat on their faces hiding from my glory. Then I will come, I will come in a hurricane and wreck. I will cover whole regions and turn things inside out, people’s hearts, homes and communities and towns will be changed but it will NOT be clean for I am Ruach Elohim*.

 

*Ruach Elohim- the Spirit of God (literally breath, wind and translated as spirit of God)

Modern Day Tarshish

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 🙂

 

The Upcoming Election (UK)

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

More Shaking

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…!

(Also I just loved this picture of the tiger shaking the water!)

Word from Veronica West 11/04/2017

Convergence

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.

Pregnant with expectation

Recently my dear mother pointed out something very interesting to me.

I am a very impatient person so during these months I have been wondering when article 50 will be triggered. However, my mum mentioned to me that it seemed very curious to say the least that it has now been nine months since we had the referendum. This is the same amount of time for a pregnancy to come to term. This to me does not seem like a coincidence seeing as God always does things using symbols, numbers and uses different things to represent things his timeline.

It would make sense to use the analogy of a pregnancy because we can see by looking back at 2016, the different trimesters and symptoms which have occurred as a result in the UK and globally too.

Firstly, in a pregnancy we know that the first 12 weeks is very vital. The cells implant in the womb and they grow rapidly. It also needs vital nutrients to help it grow and multiply. Many important things happen for example the heart starts beating, many other important organs are formed and the limbs grow.  However, the body also reacts often violently and can be starved of vital nutrients losing weight and having terrible morning sickness. It is often hard to see the development at this stage because it’s so small but if we looked closely we can see many things are happening.

We can look back at the first 12 weeks so from June 23-Sep 23 and see how many changes took place. We first saw a major upheaval in the government and a new prime minister was elected. We also saw the hideous back lash (morning sickness), an almost violent struggle to abort the plan and an allergic reaction based on fear and change (I myself having been pregnant can vouch for this!). We also knew though God was doing many things behind the scenes, removing people, putting a plan on the heart of the prime minister although we couldn’t see it or we didn’t hear it in the news.

Then in the second trimester, the morning sickness mostly goes away and the idea of pregnancy becomes more engrained in your mind, the shock decreases and a spirit of excitement settles in. The baby develops a skeleton, the baby’s gender is apparent, their ears develop and their own special, unique fingerprint forms.

This period of time was from Sep 23-Dec 23. This was a time of change on a worldwide level in many ways. There was a real excitement, a coming together and a joining of people who perhaps never felt joined before. This was not without fear though from others. The rise of the feminazi came into full view and many reports of racism (would be pregnancy scares) occurred and reports of immigration in order to paint everyone who voted for Brexit as evil, racist, bigots (perhaps reflecting the thought ‘why did we do this?’). Still, in terms of the fingerprints I think this time was significant because it gave us a time to reflect on who we are, what makes us unique and what our special mandate is in the world as the UK (I believe each country has a beautiful and unique purpose in the world.).

Finally, now we are in the third trimester Dec 23-March 23. This period of time is where the baby if born can survive well outside the womb. A premature baby needs care and although many have no problems some issues may arise because the baby is not 100% equipped to face the outside world. At this time the lungs form and although the baby looks ready it needs to gain weight in order to be fully equipped. This is why the final trimester although it may look fairly quiet compared to before is actually getting the baby and the mother ready for the birth.

We have seen some minor complications and many now have accepted that this birth will happen. The plan is being thought out behind the scenes and many faithful saints are praying. However, there is one thing we must do. We must spend this time preparing for the labour. We must anticipate ahead.  It will be hard work, it will be painful and yes it will be messy even if it’s a quick labour and everything goes according to the birth plan. The midwives must be on hand, there must be support nearby medical equipment may be necessary. Nevertheless, the baby must be born.

Finally, once the baby is here although the pregnancy is over we will have entered a new stage of life. We must have everything the baby needs, to clothe it, to feed it, to care for it. We also need to give time for the mother to recover from what has been a traumatic experience for her body (regardless of how easy the labour was). She also needs time to adjust emotionally and her body will still be changing. There will also be sleepless nights and feeding problems along with others.

Yet, what will be evident is a newfound love between the child and the mother which will continue to grow. The child will learn to smile, to laugh and to bring so much joy to its mother. Life will be so much more alive and the mother will have to become more patient, more sacrificial and will have to see life from a new perspective. However, one thing is for sure that baby will always be a blessing.

*Many things here can also be applied to the USA and to other countries around the world. I love seeing the different symbols like the eagle and the lion and unicorn emerging among others. I can’t wait to see the different destinies that God has for many countries revealed.  God bless this world!!

Where will God move next?

 

I saw an article which was discussing the different areas in the UK where people are more likely to call themselves Christians. I found it very interesting for a number of reasons.

Firstly, the areas where people are more likely to call themselves Christians (and the survey is not reflective of everyone) are areas that have a lower socio economic background. Thus these people may find themselves more empathetic towards religion because of the role churches may play in helping people in poorer areas (i.e cap and other charities). Also it is common knowledge that when you go through troubles (i.e financial difficulties) you tend sometimes to look for answers from a higher power.

Secondly, a lot of people from poorer backgrounds tend not to go to university despite student loans being a popular way to enter. Universities are certainly more liberal in many ways and steer people towards humanism and atheism.   So people who don’t go to university perhaps are more traditional in certain viewpoints for example how they see the family and its importance in society, they’re more likely to be more community minded rather than individualistic due to low wages and expensive rents (these are generalisations so please don’t think I am putting everyone in this category.). University on the other hand tends to encourage independence and sometimes to a degree that rejects the family and its values (although this isn’t the case for everyone nor for every university).

Thirdly, I want to take a quick look at the past and remind myself of the people whom were very much on the forefront of John Wesley’s mind. These were the poor, the labourers, the downtrodden, the oppressed, those that had nothing. These people were open and God reached them via John Wesley and his obedience. I believe we were saved from a would be revolution (similar to that of France at that time) because of people like John Wesley whom God used in a great way.

Next, this moves on to the final point. People like this are open to change. This can be a really good thing if a few people are willing to rise up and take a stand just like John Wesley. You see people like this don’t have much to lose from change. On the other hand, those who are wealthy, who have the privilege of living in wealthy, peaceful areas with a myriad of opportunities at their feet have benefited (and perhaps at the expense of many others). These people really have everything to lose from change.

In conclusion, God will change this nation and He will be received with open arms by many. Although he will also be rejected by many. I know that there are also many Christians who have been university educated and are against change I also know many who do want change and are open. I know there will a lot of resistance but it won’t necessary come from the people you think it will. I think it’s more likely to come from ‘well-educated’ (whatever that means), ‘wealthier’ and perhaps even some ‘established churches’. However one thing I do know is that God is about to move.

Let’s be watching very closely because you may be surprised what you see happen in the next year or so. God is on the move and He is going to use some of the most unobvious people to do His work! I know I’m excited… are you?!

3…2…1….Blast off!

I was shown a short vision of a rocket as I was praying. The rocket went up into space and off into the unknown. I was shown what it meant.

The atmosphere has five different layers that are determined by the changes in temperature that happen with increasing altitude.
  • Exosphere: 700 to 10,000 km (440 to 6,200 miles)
  • Thermosphere: 80 to 700 km (50 to 440 miles)
  • Mesosphere: 50 to 80 km (31 to 50 miles)
  • Stratosphere: 12 to 50 km (7 to 31 miles)
  • Troposphere: 0 to 12 km (0 to 7 miles)

Troposphere

It contains 75% of the atmosphere’s mass.  Temperature and pressure drops as you go higher up the troposphere. Water vapour cannot go any higher because it changes into ice and is trapped in that layer. The troposphere is an invisible barrier and it protects us from many . In the troposphere you don’t need a spacesuit on. You might need some warm clothes as you go higher but you can survive with minimal clothing and equipment. However, in order to go into space you need to break through the troposphere.

Statosphere

At this extreme altitude and low air pressure, if your body were exposed it would cause  your blood to “boil”. It is called “ebullism” which causes gas bubbles to form in bodily fluids; and blood literally boils! The stratosphere also forms a protective layer shielding life on Earth from the Sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation.   This is where you need a special suit and a helmet.

Mesosphere

Directly above the stratosphere, extending up to 80 km above the Earth’s surface, the mesosphere is a cold layer where the temperature generally decreases with increasing altitude. Not only would you need a special suit here but you would also need even warmer layers below the suit to protect you from freezing.

Thermosphere

The thermosphere extends up to outer space. The temperature is hot and may be as high as thousands of degrees as the few molecules that are present in the thermosphere receive extraordinary large amounts of energy from the Sun. However, the thermosphere would actually feel very cold to us because of the probability that these few molecules will hit our skin and transfer enough energy to cause appreciable heat is extremely low. However, because of this the spacesuit would have to not only be there to protect our bodies from space but it would also have to be able to protect itself but these powerful molecules too.

Exosphere

The exosphere is the final layer. This is a layer without end.  Once you arrive in the exosphere you could say in one sense your journey has ended but in reality a whole new journey would have only just begun.

In order for a rocket to take off it must produce an enormous amount of thrust to help it leave the Earths atmosphere. The journey will be dangerous and the rocket must withstand great pressure and many changes in temperature and dangerous atmospheric conditions.

God is saying to us that He first and foremost wants to be that thrust, that force that takes us out of the comfort zone because with each atmospheric layer peeled off your eyes are opened to a new perspective and you can see things you never dreamed of before.

Secondly, He also wants us to put on appropriate clothing for the different conditions that we will encounter on our journey. He doesn’t want to just take us to the top of the troposphere but rather to the ends of the galaxy  or ‘to infinity and beyond’ (in the words of Buzz Lightyear). He wants to take us on a journey. That journey will be hard, it will mean that we must be fearless and we must withstand great pressure and great changes . It also means we may have to leave some people behind in the troposphere. We may even feel the pull from below discouraging us as we go upwards but if we have his armour on then we will go further than we ever dreamed.

I believe that in tune with this vision God will also do great things involving space travel. In the next twenty years it will become more common for people to visit space. Many people will come to know God through this incredible experience as they see the wonders he has made for us. On the subject of space there will even be a new energy we can use discovered from outer space (see Kat Kerr).

So put your spacesuit on and get ready for an incredible, awesome and unbelievable ride.
