Where He leads us we will follow

December 8th 2011

Hos 10: 9b For I am God, and not a man—
the Holy One among you.
I will not come against their cities.
10 They will follow the LORD;
he will roar like a lion.
When he roars,
his children will come trembling from the west.
11 They will come from Egypt,
trembling like sparrows,
from Assyria, fluttering like doves.
I will settle them in their homes,”
declares the LORD.

The wind roared like a lion throughout Scotland today in Hurricane Bawbag I believe the Lord was calling the people of this land to repentance, to turn back to Him again, making a stand for Biblical values and following Him. For too long although we are a people who have been in our own nation, spiritually even believers have got lost in Egypt, it is time to be led by His dove, leave Egypt behind and live in our rightful place caught up in those heavenly places with the Lord and from there take our rightful place in our land as the wind of Spirit brings change in us and shakes all that can be shaken on a spiritual level.

Hosea 14
Repentance to Bring Blessing
 1 Return, Israel, to the LORD your God.
   Your sins have been your downfall!
2 Take words with you
   and return to the LORD.
Say to him:
   “Forgive all our sins
and receive us graciously,
   that we may offer the fruit of our lips

1 Comment and 1 Reaction Prophetic Words, The Lion Roars


Hallelujah! God is promising a new level of release of the miraculous to be seen in the nation. ‘Exodus-style’ miracles are going to increase in this season and the following season. We will begin to see creative miracles, healings, sign and wonders, encounters with God and an increase in salvations, in a greater way.


The shaking that the nation has walked through will continue in two specific areas: the economy and leadership.

Economically, there will be a double dip recession due to the refusal of society to break the habit of financial presumption. Continuing in a lifestyle of debt will crush those who refuse to change. Unemployment will rise to levels we have not seen in many, many decades.

Leadership in the church and the political and business arenas is being called to model the ways of the Good Shepherd. God has been raising up a new breed of Good Shepherd leaders – of all ages – who will rise up when others fall from grace and position, as you will witness in the coming year. It is not a place for leaders to find a middle ground where compromise reigns: you will either walk free from your sin and into a new integrity or the pressure of the sin will prevent you from retaining your position.


God is calling for His church to change from its casual approach, to embrace a reverential fear and awe of God. While personal holiness is always on God’s heart, there is an even stronger call for it in this season. Having a reverential fear and awe of the King of Kings will be a precursor to carrying the release of the power and anointing of the miraculous that God is pouring out over Scotland. Re-cultivate some of the spiritual disciplines that you once explored and which will, in this season, have more power than they ever did before.

This focus on Holiness is a choice and God is asking us to release the things that hold us back. No one man or denomination is the full carrier of the open Heaven that God seeks to bring to the nation and, along with personal holiness, corporate holiness is also on The Lord’s agenda. Corporate holiness in this season is related to the associations that we have with one another. This is a call to relinquish our elitism, titles, status, positions and power. ‘Lay it all down’ – ‘that we may be one, even as Jesus and the Father are one’.
God is asking us to align with those who are passionately pursuing the heart of God and His call to live as a Holy People.

New Sound

God is speaking the words ‘new sound’ over the nation and God is releasing favour in the creativity of the people of Scotland. It is the sound of breakthrough, it is the sound of the ‘Wake Up’ trumpet! Intercessory war cries, rhythms and drumbeats will rise. This is linked to the inheritance that Scotland has in God. It is not just confined to Christian worship music but God is going to release a change even in the ‘secular’ music coming out of Scotland.


We are in a time of transitioning, where the Lord asks, ‘Where do you want to transition into?’ and, ‘What do you want to leave behind?’ Some of the issues that have been long-established in your life will be brought to completion and they will not transition into the next season.

Glasgow Prophetic Centre, The Lion Roars, May 2011

Prayers you can pray to respond to this word:

Prophecy usually requires a response and is often conditional on what we choose to do with it. You may find it helpful to ask God the following questions, or say the following prayers, to help you fully engage with the word we have released:

Holiness and Miracles
• Ask – what would it look like if I were more holy?
• Pray – to know what it is to be more in awe of God.
• Pray – for an increase in the miraculous in your life, community, church family.

New Sound
• Pray – for this new wave of creativity to burst over you, so that you can sing a new song and have a new sound, as your Heavenly Father releases it in the nation.

• Ask – what in my life needs to transition and cannot stay where it is?
• Ask – what in my life needs brought to completion?
• Pray – that transition and completion will be brought to the areas that you have listed in the previous questions.




I woke up Thursday morning with the Lord saying He is applying His plumb line. Then He told me to get out pen and paper.


This is what He said “I am about to apply the plumb line, my standard. I love you my people, but I have given you a revelation of my Father’s heart to bring healing to you, to draw you closer to me, to help you show my love one to another and to others as yet outside my body.

   Now I am coming with launder’s soap so that you my people might have purity- Godly purity – a purity by my standard and then you my sons and daughters shall be ready to fully manifest my glory. If I allowed my glory to be manifest fully in you just now, it would burn you, so I am cleansing you, taking you through refiner’s fire and purifying you – then and only then shall my true sons and daughters arise and fully take my Kingdom and my glory shall be seen in all the earth through my faithful ones, but you have to remain faithful to host my end time glory in all it’s fullness.


Joh 17:22  And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:


Zec 4:10  For who has despised the day of small things?

            For these seven rejoice to see

            The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.

            They are the eyes of the LORD,

            Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.”




2Ch 16:9  For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”



What are we seeing right now, wars and rumours of wars, earthquakes, tsunamis?


Hag 2:4-9 ‘Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing?

 ‘According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!’

 “For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land;

and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.

 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.

 ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the LORD of hosts.”


This temple was to see the day of great things, when “the glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the LORD of hosts.”Hag_2:9. He has made a covenant with us His people today greater things we shall yet see if we allow Him to set the standard.



The day of small things - is especially God’s day, whose “strength is made perfect in weakness; who raised Joseph from the prison, David from the sheepfold, Daniel from slavery, and converted the world by the fishermen and the tentmaker, having Himself first become the Carpenter. “


"Thus He showed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in His hand. And The Lord said unto me, Amos, what seest thou?"

"And I said, A plumbline."

"Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of My people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more: And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword" (Amos 7:7-9 KJV)

The condemnation wasn't just about The Lord's people back then. The Lord does not change. What He said was wrong back then is just as wrong today because The Word of God is timeless. We need to repent of the things that are not in our lives and turn right back to Him.




Adulterous and idolitarous church

The Lord generally gives me words to encourage but He gave me this, He is coming sooner than we think.

To my bride

I am coming back for a pure spotless bride, rid yourselves of your adulterous, idolatrous hearts. I have said I will have no other God’s put before me. When you put anything at all before me you have made it an idol and you are committing adultery in your heart. If there is anything coming before me you need to repent for I am jealous for your attentions. I love you and the cry of my heart is to draw you in close to me. Fix your eyes on me, give everything over to me, let me guide your footsteps.
I am coming soon, and I need you my bride to show others my love, to spread the good news of the gospel to the people you meet, to show others the difference I make in your lives. It is time to step out in faith, come up a level, increase your expectancy for you are about to see signs and wonders like never before.
Love from Jesus

Deu 4:39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.

May this be our response.

Psa 119:57 You are my portion, O LORD; I have promised to obey your words.
Psa 119:58 I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise.
Psa 119:59 I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.
Psa 119:60 I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.

Irene McGough 4/4/11

His love poured out on us will remove all our fears.

 I want to share with you a vision the Lord gave me last night. This was for me but not for me alone.  I saw the rain, but this was love poured out, healing rain and it was coming down hard and with it God's people were refreshed- then He showed me a huge net and in it were placed all our fears - fear of man, fear of us not being good enough was another, fear of failure, every kind of fear and the Lord gathered them all together and cast them into the deepest sea, the abyss- never more to return.

I believe this is what He wants to do for us today. His love is perfect and it casts out all fear giving us a new boldness that we might move into the realms of the supernatural with Him like never before. It's harvest time. Greater things are yet to come.

1Jn 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

LOL - the Lord just reminded me how last night as I lay in bed the wind came with the rain, it was quite a stormy night, but He is the one who calms the storms, and that wind He is pouring out His spirit on His sons and His daughters like never before.

Act 2:17 ‘ And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.

Act 2:18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
And they shall prophesy.

Joh 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

Irene McGough 5/10/10

Ambassadors for Christ – Do I have your Attention?

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“To all those who would still claim to be ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ, I say to you, what on earth are you doing? There is no higher calling than to be called to represent My Son and His name which is above every other. Tell me, what do I have to do to get your attention? Be warned there are no lengths to which I will not go to secure your attention. Whatever it takes I will get it and lay hold of you.

“Those of you who choose to continue on aimlessly as if I have not spoken to you are in for a real shock. Do not delude yourselves into thinking because you have done this, that or the other in My Son’s name that somehow you still have our approval. For I say to you that your way of doing things is not necessarily our ways and are in truth, often a hindrance to what you have been called to do. Why are so many so reluctant to listen to what We have been saying to you. Do you not have ears to hear? Have you not read all that was written down as a warning for all on whom the fulfilment of this age has come. No one should think that they are special or indispensable no matter how big or small you or others believe your ministry to be.

“Ask yourself, are you truly in My will being led of My Spirit? Do not make the mistake of thinking that somehow I deal differently with you than all the others. Consider carefully those who went before you, as I do not have any favourites. But some are more at one with My Holy Spirit and learnt the true meaning of abiding in Me.

“You say you are called, chosen and sent – but I would ask you by whom? For you are not doing as I asked nor are you listening to My Holy Spirit. So I would remind you, if I was able to catch David’s and Jonah’s attention then surely I can get yours also, but for some it will be to late. I have got the attention of many through their economies and many sat up and took notice when their planes were grounded.

“You are about to enter into a time of great difficulties that many have never experienced and are in no position to avoid. If I do not have your full attention at this time, you will suffer needlessly. So I say again, do not believe in your hearts that you are somehow special or different to the others and that I do things differently with you. I have got Netanhyahu’s attention and I will get Obama’s also. I have got the attention of a few of what you consider to be the larger Christian ministries, but it has cost some of them profoundly.

“As the governments of the world slip and slide towards a new order, I to am bringing My order to My church. So I say to you, repent and turn back to Me while there is still time.”

The True and the False

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“Just as a fog of lies, deceit and deception entered the garden in the beginning, so the same fog of deception has been cultivated in the minds of many in the church. There are those who are living under false pretences and claim to be a part of the church. However, this is a charade, a deception; an abomination in My sight says the Lord. Their fruit is a projected delusion and rotten to the core. On the surface to the untrained eye and the undiscerning, it looks appetising, but on closer inspection, it is found to be counterfeit. Just like the waxed and plastic fruit, it is all for show.

“But know this says the Lord, I am dissecting all that is false and gifting that which is true, to discern and know the difference. There is a spirit of truth and a spirit of falsehood, the true gospel and a false gospel, true apostles and false apostles, a true anointing and a counterfeit anointing. And yes, says the Lord, true prophets and false prophets and by their fruit will you recognise them. For that which is true will produce lasting fruit, fruit of the light, true fruit of My Spirit.

“Avoid the fruitless deeds of darkness and produce fruit in keeping with repentance. Therefore, says the Lord, repent for all your fruitless deeds of darkness while there is still time, because My fire is coming on My church, to test the true quality of each man’s fruit and his works."

Forewarned is Forearmed

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“Over familiarity has bred contempt says the Lord God. In these last generations, there has been a cataclysmic shift in the attitude of many towards My Holy Spirit. Many have become impertinent and disobedient and habitually rationalise (justify by plausible reasoning) the truth of My word, and the leadings of My Holy Spirit and therefore grieve Him immensely. Far too many operate independently of Him in My name and this will not be tolerated as I prepare to pour out My Spirit in greater abundance in these last generations.

“Therefore, greater persecution will also arise, so it is expedient at this time that I call forth My prophets from their hidden places to thunder out My message of warning. Do not be deceived, a time is coming when those who ignore My Holy Spirit do so at their own peril, because the battle will become so fierce at times, that many who have chosen not to be one with Him are not one with us (Father and Son). Yet, for your encouragement, I would remind you that you are indeed one of the most privileged generations, if you embrace Him wholeheartedly and My word of truth.

“Many in this generation enjoyed singing the words of the song, “In heavenly armour.” Truly I say to you, that the end time battle truly does belong to the Lord, and those who have chosen not to be one with My Holy Spirit will not stand, but fall when the battle is at its fiercest.

“I am a holy God, a Consuming Fire, so do not be deceived into thinking as some have been taught that you can approach Me as your mate or buddy. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, and only those with clean hands and a pure heart can ascend the hill of the Lord and stand in the holy place. For without holiness, no one will see Me.”

Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment

The following was revealed in the secret place over a period of time in September 2009.

There is no such thing as cheap grace and justice must be seen to run its course.

Little or no effort is required to walk through an open door, but to climb through a window calls for real effort; depending on the size and height of the window and each window is tailor-made.

Because the sins of the fathers fall on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate God; and Satan, knowing his time to be short, the enemy driven by his inflamed hatred for the body of Christ, set into motion an extreme onslaught, to derail the gospel being preached to all the nations in the twentieth century. But the Lord God in all His sovereignty opened a window of extraordinary grace to enable those who wish, to enter and avail themselves of this time of unmerited favour.

Now in the twenty-first century this window is slowly closing to those who are an offence to the Lord God. Sin has been allowed to runs its course as an act of judgment.* ‘There is a way that seems right to a man but in the end it leads to death’ (Proverbs 14:12).

Michael Backholer, Wednesday 16 September 2009 – www.prophecynow.co.uk

• * ‘Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of the hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another’ Romans 1:24 - NIV
• * ‘But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when His righteous judgment will be revealed. God will give to each person according to what He has done. To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honour and immortality, He will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.’ Romans 2:5-8 – NIV.
• * ‘But My people would not listen to Me; Israel would not submit to Me. So I gave them over to their stubborn heart to follow their own devices.’ Ps. 81:11-12– NIV.

In the twentieth century, the First World War (1914-1918) saw more than ten million people killed, whilst the consequences of World War II (1939-1945) saw a minimum of fifty million dead, with some historians stating the figure to be as high as seventy million. Millions were killed before their time as we see the signs of the **last days and the end of the age before the glorious return of Jesus Christ who is coming back for a pure and spotless bride. **There will be false Christ’s, false prophets, tribulation, persecution, betrayals, martyrdoms, famines, earthquakes, pestilence, wars, rumours of wars, troubles, fearful sights, great signs from heaven and because of lawlessness, the love of many will grow cold.

**See Matthew chapter 24, Mark chapter 13 and Luke chapter 21.

To Great Britain – The Land of Hope and Glory

This is what the Sovereign Lord says to Great Britain:

“Many have heard, sang, whistled or hummed along to the tune of ‘Land of Hope and Glory,’ but few have really understood the words of introduction. Hope is the expectation of something truly desired deep within ones own heart which calls for faith. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. The glory is mine; I will not give to or share it with another. But when My glory descends in all its majesty; men and women alike drop to their knees in awe or are prostrated, overcome in all submissiveness.

“Look, watch and be amazed, for I am going to do something in Great Britain, in your days that most would not believe, even if they were told. For I shall again visit this nation for My glory, due in part, in answer to the prayers of millions. Yes, millions of children who prayed daily:

“ ‘Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever. Amen.’

“I have not forgotten, did you?”

The Enemy has his Hooks in Many of My People

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“The enemy has his hooks in many of My people and they have become snared. They have taken the bait of Satan and have been lured away to swim outside of my shoal of protection and there has been compromise. But in My goodness and mercy I opened up a sluice for those who were willing to swim through but that sluice is now slowly closing to those who are deliberately disobedient.* There are no lengths to which I will not go too, to warn those who have chosen to swim with the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.**

“Today there are many with an independent spirit who chose their will over Mine and refuse the way of their Saviour. Many (not all) have gone out or have been sent out in My name as fishers of men, but now I am reeling some of them in and will separate the good fish from the bad. Some will be placed to one side and taught further truth, because it is by the truth you can be set free. Some will be thrown back as unsuitable and a few will come to an end. Many are self deluded and influenced by deceiving spirits and are a burden to others and a danger to themselves as well as others.

“There is no place in My River of Life for those with an independent spirit who believe what they want to believe and put their own spin or interpretation on what My Holy Spirit says to them. As I called forth My Son to lay His life down so I have called others. This is not some form of theoretical death, but a daily dying to self so that My Holy Spirit can accomplish His work here and now on the earth.”

Michael Backholer, Monday 14 September 2009 – www.prophecynow.co.uk

*‘For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret’ Ephesians 5:12 – NIV.

**‘In which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient’ Ephesians 2:2 – NIV.

The Economic Climate and a Look at the Church

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“I hear the sound of voices all over the world, people who are anxious, fearful and some who are distraught. A people who have lost hope, a people who do not know Me or know of My love, listening, watching, thinking and asking, who can we put our trust in now? Who can we believe? What is the world coming to? Will this ever end? All the lies, the deceit, the deception; bankers, politicians and leaders, saying one thing one day and then later doing another. Where is it all leading to?

"Some say this is the hand of God at work, sifting and shaking, a sign of divine displeasure. Some are looking to the church for an anchor and direction - what will they find? What will they see? What will they hear? Will they find faith? True hope? A house of prayer for all nations? A refuge? A place of blessing where My will on earth is done as in heaven? - Full of loving, forgiving people. A place where My Holy Spirit is welcome and moving in power. Convicting, converting, delivering and healing or will they find that a partial darkness Has settled and replaced the light that calls itself the church, a reflection of the world.”

Intercessors Called for Warfare, Prepare the way for the Evangelists and Revivalists – (Rees Howells)

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“I am calling forth men and women from the nations of the earth who are willing to forsake all, follow Me, crucify their flesh and die to self daily, those who will not count or consider the cost or look back. Those who are willing to make up the hedge and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land as did My servant and My friend Rees Howells, who knew the secret place of abiding in Me and was willing for My Spirit to work through him to intercede and bind the strongman, pull down strongholds and dislodge principalities and powers of darkness and all spiritual forces of evil.

“These are the ones who have been through the fire and walked the wilderness path, for I have prepared them for such a time as this. These are the ones that have been despised and looked down upon, but now in this hour I shall raise them up as part of My battle plan, they know My voice and are obedient to My word. They will not compromise with man or the world, for they are wholly Mine and shall go forth, led of My Spirit to prepare the way for the evangelists and revivalists, some of whom are one and the same, and I shall use them for My glory and My glory only.

“These are the anointed ones; ‘Do not touch My anointed ones; do My prophets no harm,’ ‘For who can lay a hand on the Lords anointed and be guiltless?’ ”

Michael Backholer, Tuesday 2 January 2007 - www.prophecynow.co.uk

Those who Play with Fire will Get Burnt!

This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“Listen, listen I say. This is not the time to be playing with fire, you will get burnt. Some of you are already singed and yet continue to play in and around the flames. My generals, and indeed all My people know the flames may seem warm and inviting for a season, but they will dry you out and before you know it, you to will burst into flame and be consumed and bring further shame on My house.

“There is a sifting and a shaking going on which is of Me, and this is for your own good as I prepare My Church for these last days. Yet, some of you are hell-bent and delude yourselves into thinking that you are somehow different to the rest. I tell you plainly you have become deceived by the evil one into believing that you can turn away from the flames anytime you choose. But I warn you, you are heading the same way as the others.

“Now, now, now is the time to turn and flee and call on the name of the Lord. Cry out to Me, confess and repent of your sin. Yes, while there is still time or you too will be thrown to one side and be left to smoulder alone and bare the shame and disgrace of your actions. Reach out to Me now, before it is too late and I will lift you out of the flames. Wipe the smoke filled tears from your eyes and believe My promise:

‘God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfil?’ Numbers 23:19.

Michael Backholer, Friday 24 November 2006 - www.prophecynow.co.uk

Ask, Seek and Knock and Fully Surrender Yourselves - Harvesters Needed!


This is what the Sovereign Lord says to His Church:

“To the many in the Church who feel discouraged, disheartened, defeated and powerless I have this to say, My power is made perfect in weakness, for My kingdom is not a matter of words but of power, the power of My Holy Spirit which is available to all who ask. How much more will I give My Holy Spirit to those who ask, this is My promise to all who ask, seek and knock sincerely.

"Furthermore, My anointing is available to all who will not count the cost, and surrender their bodies to My Holy Spirit who will make it His temple, and cleanse and restore it and make it holy, for without holiness no one will see the Lord. This is a sacrifice holy and pleasing to your God, your spiritual act of worship, and do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds. Then you will be able to test and approve what My will is – My good pleasing and perfect will.

“I am looking for men and women from every nation who will surrender their lives fully to My will and become My disciples, and live in obedience to My word and My Holy Spirit, so we can work in and through them to help bring in the greatest harvest ever known, in preparation for that great and glorious day when every knee shall bow and tongue confess, ‘Jesus Christ is Lord.’ ”

Vision of Revival 1989

Michael Backholer was at North Queensferry, very early one morning, having been wakened by the Lord. He walked down near the water and was looking up at the majestic Forth Bridge, when the Lord said, “I had these bridges [one is for trains and the other for vehicles] built for the same reason the Roman roads were built - for the spread of My gospel.”

Suddenly as Michael looked up, he saw flames of fire appearing hundreds of feet high, flowing across the bridge from north to south. In astonishment he said “What is it Lord?” having never received a vision before. “It's flames of revival, I’m going to send revival and it will start in the north and flow south” replied the Lord. “When will it come?” asked Michael, “Very soon,” said the Lord.

Michael Backholer, June 1989 - www.prophecynow.co.uk

“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He not said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” Numbers 23:19. NKJV.

Prophecy Given by Smith Wigglesworth - 1947

Revival Spreading from England to Europe
Two distinct moves of the Holy Spirit will occur across the Church in Great Britain the latter brings in a revival that will be greater than even the Wesleyan and the Welsh revivals of former years.


More from Wigglesworth

"... Shutting his eyes again, he said, 'I see the greatest revival in the history of mankind coming to Planet earth, maybe as never before. And I see every form of disease healed. I see whole hospitals emptied with no one there. Even the doctors are running down the streets shouting.'

"He told me that there would be untold numbers of uncountable multitudes that would be saved. No man will say 'so many, so many,' because nobody will be able to count those who come to Jesus. No disease will be able to stand before God's people... 'It will be a worldwide situation, not local,' he said, 'a worldwide thrust of God's power and God's anointing upon mankind.'

"Then he opened his eyes and looked at me and said, 'I will not see it, but you shall see it. The Lord says that I must go on to my reward, but that you will see the mighty works that He will do upon the earth in the last days.'

"... The idea that I would get to see this revival was almost overwhelming. And in the last decade or so, I believe we have seen this revival begin to sweep the earth. We have seen amazing moves of God in Africa... Recently, I was in China and met with the underground church. I was told there are at least forty-five million Full Gospel Christians in China. I discovered a depth of prayer and integrity there that I have not felt anywhere else in the world... So I believe we are seeing Wigglesworth's prophecy begin to be fulfilled. We are seeing the first stages of it." (-Lester Sumrall died on April 28, 1996).

Another of Wigglesworth's prophecies states that the last great Revival will bring a marrying together of the "Word" and the "Spirit" in a way we have not seen before. There have been many Revivals involving the spoken 'word' in a major way - notably those of Edwards, Wesley, Finney, etc. And over the last century there have been many Revivals that majored on the Holy Spirit. But this is to be one that involves a "marrying together" of the spoken-word type ministry and the Holy Spirit-focused ministry. What power will be released when this happens! Can you imagine the preaching of a 'Charles Finney' combined with the signs and miracles of a healing revivalist?

Great judgements

Great Judgements
Stanley Frodisham 1965
(Date of Posting 28 February 2006)

This is a copy of a prophetic word spoken by Stanley Frodisham who was a personal friend of Smith Wigglesworth. It was given in Chicago in 1965 five years before he died.

We invite you to be the judge of its relevance for today.

Great Judgements

"With great judgements will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgements are literal and not a thing to be passed over lightly. Realise the severity of My judgements and My intense anger against the sin in My Household. My judgements shall begin in My House, for I will cleanse My House that it be not a partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgement I will begin at My House. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.

I am going to prepare you for the coming days by a hard path that will cause many to cry out continually unto Me. For when the going is easy men do not seek Me, but rejoice in a temporary blessing. And when that blessing is removed they so often turn this way and that way but do not come to Me. I am showing you these things in order that you may seek Me continually and with great diligence. As you seek Me I will open up truths to you that you have not seen before, and these very truths will be such that will enable you to stand in these last days. As you are persecuted, reviled and rejected by your brethren then you will turn unto Me with all your heart and seek Me for that spiritual life that you need. So that when the tribulation comes you will have that which will enable you to stand. For many will be tossed to and fro, men’s hearts shall fail them because of trouble on every hand. These days shall be very terrible the likes of which have never been seen before.

Coming Glory – and – Deceiving Spirits

When I visit My people in mighty revival power, it is to prepare them for the darkness ahead. With the Glory shall come great darkness, for the Glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I will enable My people to go through the darkness because of the visitation of My Spirit. Take heed to yourselves lest you be puffed up and think that you have arrived. Many shall be puffed up as in the olden days, for then, many received My message but they did not continue in it. Did I anoint Jehu? Yet the things that I desired were not accomplished in his life. Listen to the messengers, but do not hold men’s persons in admiration or adulation. For many whom I shall anoint mightily with signs and miracles shall become lifted up and shall fall by the wayside. I do not this willingly for I have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this ministry and equip them, but remember that many shall fall. They shall be like bright lights and the people shall delight in them. But they shall be taken over by deceiving spirits and shall lead many of My people astray. Hearken diligently concerning these things, for in the last days shall come seducing spirits. They shall turn many of My anointed ones away, many shall fall through diverse lusts and because of ‘sin abounding.

But if you will seek Me diligently I will put My Spirit within you so that when one shall turn to the right hand or to the left hand you shall not turn with them, but instead you will keep your eyes fixed wholly on your Lord. The coming days are going to be most dangerous, difficult and dark for there shall be a mighty outpouring of My Spirit in judgement upon many cities and many shall be destroyed. My people must be diligently warned concerning the days ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits and already many are seducing My people. It is those who ‘Do Righteousness’ that are righteous. Many cover their sins by great theological words. But I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct my people in an evil way. Many of these I will anoint that they in turn may purify and sift My people, for I will have a holy people. When I come I shall not find faith upon the earth but in a few, for when the time of testing comes many will depart from their Lord.

Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements. You will find that after I have visited My people again the way will become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk therein. Be not deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways. For though Satan come as an angel of light hearken not to him; for those who perform miracles and speak not righteousness are not of Me. I warn you with great intensity that I am going to judge My House and have a church without spot or wrinkle when I come. I desire to open your eyes and give you spiritual understanding, that you may not be deceived but may walk with uprightness of heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every evil way. Look unto Me and I will make you to perceive with the eyes of the Spirit the things that lurk in darkness, that are not visible to the human eye. Let Me lead you in this way, that you may perceive the powers of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle against flesh and blood, for if you battle in that way you accomplish nothing. But if you let Me take over and battle against the powers of darkness then they are defeated, and then liberation is brought to My people.

The Ways of Deceivers

I warn you to search the Scriptures diligently concerning these last days. For the things that are written shall indeed be made manifest. There shall come deceivers among My people in increasing numbers, who shall speak forth the truth and shall gain the favour of the people. For the people shall examine the Scriptures and say, ‘What these men say is true’. Then when they have gained the hearts of the people, then and then only shall they bring out their wrong doctrines. Therefore I say that you should not give your hearts to men, nor hold people’s persons in admiration or adulation. For by these very persons Satan shall gain entry into My people. Watch for seducers! Do you think a seducer will brandish a heresy and flaunt it before the people? He will speak words of righteousness and truth and will appear as a minister of light, declaring the Word. The people’s hearts shall be won. Then when the hearts are won, they will bring out their doctrines and the people shall be deceived. The people shall say ‘Did he not speak thus and thus’? ‘And did we not examine it from the Word’? ‘Therefore he is a minister of righteousness. This that he has now spoken we do not see in the Word but it must be right, for the other things he spoke were true’.

Be not deceived. For the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts of many, and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines. You can not discern those who are of Me and those who are not of Me when they start to preach. But seek Me constantly, and when these doctrines are brought out you shall have a witness in your heart that these are not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you. It is possible that the very elect may be deceived. But it is not possible if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, for then your eyes shall be open and the Lord will protect you. If you will constantly look unto the Lord you will know when the doctrine changes, and will not be brought into it. If your heart is right I will keep you, if you will look constantly to Me I will uphold you.

The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise --- his life shall agree with the word, and his lips shall give forth that which is wholly true, there will be no mixture. When the mixture appears then you will know he is not a minister of righteousness. The deceivers speak first the truth and then error, to cover their own sins which they love. Therefore I exhort and command you to study the Scriptures relative to seducing spirits, for this is one of the great dangers of these last days.

I desire you to be firmly established in My word and not in the personalities of men, that you will not be moved as so many shall be moved. I would keep you in the paths of righteousness. Take heed to yourselves and follow not the seducing spirits that are already manifesting themselves. Diligently inquire of Me when you hear something that you have not seen in the word, and do not hold people’s persons in admiration, for it is by this very method that Satan will hold many of My people.

The Way of Triumph

I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly, that you may triumph where I triumphed. On the cross I triumphed over all the powers of Satan and I have called you to walk in the same path. It is when your life is on the cross that you shall know the victory that I have experienced. As you are on the cross, seated in Me, then you shall know the power of the resurrection. When I come in My Glory the principalities and powers in the heavenly places shall be utterly broken. Fear not, for I have given you the power whereby you may tread down the powers of darkness, and come forth victorious through every trial. As you are on the cross then you are victorious. It was on the cross that I triumphed over all the powers of the enemy. My life shall flow through as you enter into these precious truths. Look unto Me and appropriate My life. As your eyes and desires are toward Me and you know what it is to be crucified with Me, then you shall live and your anointing shall increase. It was not in My life as I walked upon the earth but rather it was in My life as I hung upon the cross that I openly spoiled principalities and powers.

I am showing you truth that shall cause you to overcome, to have power over the wicked one, this is the truth that will liberate you and those around you. You shall know also the fellowship of My sufferings. There is no other way whereby you may partake of this heavenly glory and to reign with Me. My word says that If we suffer with Him we shall reign with Him. I desire to make these truths real within you. As you keep them before you, you will in turn liberate many who are in bondage. You will have revelation of those who are in darkness and will have the keys to liberate the captives. Many seek to liberate but do not have the keys. Upon the cross continually you will know the power of My resurrection.

If you will indeed judge yourself you shall not be judged. As you seek My face and desire to be cleansed by Me in all truth and sincerity of heart, I will judge you in the secret place, and the things that are in the secret place of your heart shall not be made manifest to others. I will do it in the secret place and no man will know it. The shame that will be seen on many faces shall not be seen on your face. Therefore in mercy and love I am instructing you in order that you may partake of My Glory. As you are willing to walk with Me and rejoice in your sufferings, you shall in turn partake of My Glory. Look unto Me for you have need of power to overcome the wicked one and the bondages in other’s lives.

I said that if a man will judge himself he shall not be judged. It is not My good pleasure that the shame of My people be seen by all. How can I judge the world if I judge not first My own house? Hearken unto these things that I am telling you, for if you will not hearken unto Me thy shame shall be evident to all.

God’s Part and Our Part

I would have you consider My life on earth --- the anointing upon Me was great and yet the temptations were great on every side; they came in one form and then in another, offering Me first the glory of the kingdoms of the earth and then in the form of reviling and persecution. There will be great glory given to My people but also the temptations will be intensified on every side. Think not that with the glory there shall be no temptations or persecutions. The glory to My church shall be great and so also the temptations from the enemy to turn My people from My paths. I warn you again that when the glory shall be manifested the temptations shall be great until very few that started shall finish the course. First of all they shall be offered great worldly possessions and then will come great revilings and unbelief.

Consider your Lord, that as He walked so it shall be for you. There shall be need of great intensity of purpose. At times it will seem that everyone is rising up against you, trying to turn you from the course that I have set for you. It is written of Me that I set my face as flint to go in the direction that My Father had prescribed for Me. If you will finish the course the Lord has laid down for you, you too will have to set your face as a flint. With great determination you must walk in the course laid down for you. Many of your loved ones and those who follow with you will seek to persuade you and try to turn you from the course. With many words that seem right in the natural they will speak to you. Did not Christ rebuke Peter who would turn Him from the course God had prescribed?

Understand these two things and meditate upon them solemnly --- the persecution and the darkness shall be as great as the glory in order to try to turn the elect and the anointed ones from the path the Lord has laid down for them. Many shall start but few shall be able to finish because of the greatness of grace that shall be needed to be able to endure unto the end. The temptation and the persecution of your Lord was continuous. He was tempted by Satan in many forms throughout His entire life and even to the cross where the ungodly cried out ‘if thou be the Christ come down from the cross’. Think not that there will be a time of no persecution, for it shall be from the time of your anointing until the end. Difficulties and great persecution will go on to the end. The Lord must prepare you to be an overcomer in all things, that you may be able to finish the course. The persecution shall increase even as the anointing shall increase.

In paths of judgement and righteousness shall the Lord God lead His people and bring them into that place which He has chosen for them. The Lord has chosen a place for His people, a place of righteousness and holiness where He shall encamp around them. All who will be led of the Lord will be brought into this holy place. For the Lord delights to dwell in His people and to manifest Himself through His people. The holiness of the Lord will be manifested through His people. Let the Lord lead you and He will lead you in the difficult places. He led His people of old through a place where no man dwelt, where no man passed through, in a place of great danger and in the shadow of death. The Lord will indeed lead His people again through such places, and at the same time will bring them out into a place of great glory. Understand that the way toward the glory is fraught with great danger and many shall fall to the right or the left, many shall camp on lesser ground. But the Lord has a place of holiness and no unclean thing shall dwell among His people.

Put your trust in Him and He will bring you into a place of holiness. He desires to bring His people into a great glory --- the likes of which has never been seen, for this is what the Lord will do for those who put their trust in Him. It is a place of darkness and great danger and it will separate His people into the place where he would have them walk. He will protect them from the voices that would turn them from His path. He will bring them through the dark places and treacherous paths and lead them out into the light of His glory. He will rejoice greatly over His beloved and cause them to be filled with joy unspeakable. He seeks to lead His people into a new place of grace and glory where He will indeed encamp among them. Put your trust in Him and He will surely bring you into this new place.

Fear not the days to come, but fear this only --- that you shall walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord. In this time I am ordering and setting up My church and it shall indeed be pure, without spot or wrinkle. I will do a work in My beloved that has not been seen since the foundation of the world. I have shown you these things that you may seek the Lord diligently with all your heart, and that you may be a preserver of His people.

Run not to this one or that one for the Lord has so ordained that salvation is in Him and in Him alone. You shall not turn to this shepherd or to that one, for there shall be a great scattering upon the earth. Therefore look unto Him for He will indeed make these things clear to you. You shall not look here or there, for His Wells shall increase your strength and your faith as He prepares you for the times that are coming.

The truths that I have revealed to you must become a part of you --- not just an experience, but a part of your very nature. Is it not written that I demand truth in the inward parts? It is the truth of the Lord expressed in your very being that shall hold you. Many shall experience the truth but the truth must become a part of you, your very life. As men and women look upon you they will hear not only the voice but see the expression of the truth. Many shall be overcome because they are not constant in My ways and because they have not permitted the truths to become a part of them. I am showing you these things that you may be prepared, and having done all, to stand. "


Jean Darnell's prophecy

Prophecy Given by
Jean Darnall - 1970's
The fire touches Britiain and then Europe - creative communicators will witness to Europe. Prophecy of revival fire sweeping the land.


The Vision
With permission from Jean Darnall

During those weeks a vision came to me. It appeared three different times, during prayer, and it was the same vision each time. Now most of my revelation from the Lord is what I just 'know': He makes me know something, and I speak it forth. But now and then I have a vision, and when I do I have a pretty good one! Some people have a very garden-variety type of visions: they're getting them all the time, you know. But I just have them now and then. And it's usually a milestone: a turning point or very large directive in my life.
And what I saw was the British Isles, as in a bird's eye view. A kind of haze was over the whole, like a green fog. And then little pinpricks of light began to appear from the top of Scotland to Land's End. Then the Lord seemed to draw me closer to these lights, and I saw that they were fires that were burning. They were multiplying from the top of Scotland to Land's End. Then I saw lightening come and strike those fires, the brightest spots particularly, and there was a kind of explosion, and rivers of fire flowed down. Again, the sense of direction was from the top of Scotland to Land's End. But some of those rivers of fire didn't stop there. They went right across the Channel and didn't stop there. They went right across the Channel and spread out into the Continent.
Phase One: The Glowing Fires

The Lord impressed it on my Heart that those fires I saw were groups of people whom He would make intensely hungry for New Testament Christianity. They would start reading their Bibles and saying, for instance, as they read the book of Acts, 'Well, where is this happy church? Where are these people so full of the power of the Holy Spirit? Where are these miracles? Where is this growth, this vitality, this courage, this boldness that these people had? Is that for today – can we have it today? Should the church be this way?'
And as these questions were being planted in their hearts, the Lord Jesus said He would make them very hungry for the Holy Spirit; He would fill them with the Holy Spirit, and out of those gifts would flow ministries that would enrich the Body of Christ. The whole concept of the Body of Christ would come alive, and barriers between denominations and different types of Christians would break down as people met each other.
The Lord said He would move these people all over the country. After he had taught them gifts, he would move them to another place where they would carry that fire, and where they would meet others also who were being renewed by the Holy Spirit. He would put them in different situations from what they were used to, so that they would get to know people of other denominations, other cultures and other classes, and be able to communicate to them the blessings that the Lord had given them.
And then He told me that during that time He would also test them. There would be great testing of faith, great waiting times. He would teach them spiritual warfare. He would show them the meaning of the power of the blood of Jesus, the name of Jesus, the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Phase Two: The Coming of the Lightning

Then I asked the Lord, 'What does the lightning stand for?'
And he said, 'Unlike the first part, in which I will be speaking to Christians and preparing My church and renewing it and reviving the saints, the lightning represents a second part of the vision, in which I will bring a spiritual awakening to the nation that will be a witness to the unsaved, to the un-churched, to the non-Christian.
Through these believers I will bring a witness to this land. They will be an army of witnesses. And I will begin to release their ministries so that when they give their testimonies there will be apostolic signs following and accompanying their testimonies. Where ears have been deaf and hearts have been hard and eyes have been blind, I will touch the people of this land and they will begin to hear the testimony of My people, they will begin to see the manifestations of My power, and their hearts will begin to believe. Thousands and thousands of people are going to come into my kingdom through this army of witnesses, through this people movement – not characterized by any particular evangelist or great organisation at the front, but just My people rising up, led by My spirit and beginning to move forward with a new faith for evangelism, a new zeal to share Jesus with others. And as they give their testimonies, I will release their ministries of healing and miracles, and there will be signs and wonders accompanying their ministries. So many people will be saved, in the villages as well as in the cities, in the schools, in the government, in media, in industry. It will affect the destiny of this nation; it will determine the course of the times.

Phase Three: Streams across the Channel

Then I said, 'Lord, what about these streams that go on across the Channel into Europe?'
And He said, 'That represents people who will rise up in the midst of this people movement, this army of witnesses in Britain, whom I will make My communicators.'
Now I hadn't used that word very much before in ministry I said, 'Lord, what do you mean by communicators?'
And he said, 'They will not only be people endowed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, with strong faith, but they will also be people talented in the arts. They will be writers, musicians, singers and actors, and also technicians in television, radio and the mass media. I will call and send them and put them in strategic places. I will bless their natural talents with my Spirit, and they will be good: they will excel. They will be leaders in their fields. I will send them into Europe, where they will meet other people in the media, and through them I will release the word of God very fast in Europe. The result will be another wave of a spiritual awakening, with thousands coming to Christ throughout Europe.'

Prayer will decide if revival or darkness will come to Britain in this generation - Cindy Jacobs 2001


Light or darkness

The following is a prophecy that was given by Debra Green to The Salvation Army on Saturday 5 May at Roots 2001:

I was asking the Lord to give me a word for you before I came. Last night we saw a video of a guy running into the rain, stripping off his shirt & standing beneath it, just getting soaked & drenched, with his head looking up. You have been asking the Lord, "How Long?" How long before we see the barren land drenched?

The Lord says, "Give me a Year", a year to pray. During the year you will be like the man in the downpour; just standing still under it. There won't be much activity or movement in that year, even though you are known for activity, this is a year to stand under the rain.
The guy rips off his shirt, hungry, even desperate for the rain. You have come to that place, you ask "How Long Lord?" He says, "Just give me a year of concentrated prayer."
There is a huge rain cloud over your movement. The prayers are rising up & releasing the rain, just like heat rises & bursts the rain cloud, the more prayer, the more rain! It's a two-way flow, back & forth, the land around you is getting soaked, it's becoming fertile & ready for growth. Hard ground is softened, this is the beginning of something new, things will never be the same again.
