We are thrilled that after six years of engaging the Governmental mountain in the Kingdom realm of the Father, NATO are right now in WALES. It is the largest gathering of world leaders the UK has ever hosted. They are right on our doorstep at the East Gate. Cardiff and Newport is abuzz with Police and Security people. Obama and Cameron are a few miles away.
The Nations have come to WALES. The ‘Kings’ have come to our rising (small though it yet may be). They have come here needing clarity and strength. One NEWS paper asked does Wales still breathe fire? Because the Paper said – the Leaders really need it right now. It is not a time to be faint hearted.
Our national Angels are called PASSION, FIRE and GLORY according to Ian Clayton. We need them more than ever right now. We need the virtue and enablement they bring. This is not a time to be lukewarm. The world is in crisis. NATO must urgently respond. It is an emergency and there is an urgency.
My personal conviction is that if NATO rises as one man in unity with one voice, it could change the world. We are in a day where we need courageous decisive Leaders. The UN can’t do it but perhaps NATO can. We need people who have vision and don’t run from the challenges of our time. Whether we like it or not the world is already at war. It just looks very different from the past.
But the challenges of our time will never be fully resolved through the natural means alone. It is going to take something super-natural. It’s going to take the governmental ECCLESIA and powerful displays of Heaven. This is something that cannot be hyped up or made to happen through education alone. It is something far more than that.
We need real POWER not more hype. We even need POWER to pray. To be strengthened with MIGHT to handle it. Warfare in the Spirit, must move into OCCUPYING and taking the seats of power in the Heavenly realms. I saw in a powerful trance vision the SKY was on FIRE. God spoke and said this time the wildfire is also going to burn the skies (heavens).
People in our history like Rees Howells (and his friends) in Swansea Wales, shaped the second world war through being ECCLESIA. These guys were like the Delta Force, the SAS of the Spirit. They actually overshadowed battles in WW2 and Heaven responded. They moved in the Spirit. There are stories of hailstones falling and unusual weather destroying the enemy. Angels responding to their commands.
We need visible Government like NATO to be STRONG and TAKE ACTION. But we also must become the HIDDEN Government of the Sons, called out to Govern IN THE SPIRIT. We are a Kingdom of Kings, not just Priests.
I am asking that I (we) would not be DISTRACTED any longer by earth. As Ian Clayton says is we FOCUS on EARTH we get what’s coming from the Earth. If we focus on HEAVEN we get what’s coming out of HEAVEN. We MUST – as hard as it might be – set our minds on things ABOVE.
We have been pulled along on the illusions of Facebook, Twitter, the 24/7 news streams.
Something different has to happen now. The great conflict is gathering momentum. You can see it on every front- family, economics, socially, governmentally. In the physical and the spiritual. It’s only going to intensify.
I had a dream where I saw the enemy was fighting with fury and the battle was intense. It was like Lord of the Rings and they were the orcs. But then the dream pulled back and I realised they were fighting so hard because of panic and fear. They were cornered onto the last part of the Mountain and fighting to remain there. The battle is for the high places.
I then heard an audible voice in the Dream it said “It’s time to SURGE”. I looked it up to see what it means. To surge means -a strong, wavelike, forward movement, rush, or sweep. It’s time for a FORWARD MOVEMENT again. To sweep, push together. I saw if we moved together the enemy would be crushed. We could take them TOGETHER. This was real unity. Real power in action.
Prophet Martin Scott says, “It takes less than you think to change a culture.”
Joan of Arc turned a nation around at one of its darkest times and she was little more than a kid who believed in her crazy visions.
The times have changed. The battle lines have been drawn. It’s not a natural war. It’s a war with hidden powers, darkness and corruption. A battle is here that is not going away. It must be fought.
The Heroes of the past give me hope it can radically change. Charles Finney was one man who walked in exceptional power in his generation. Even after breakouts of Heaven that shut down towns and factories with conviction, he still prayed like he had seen nothing yet. He was not a ‘satisfied’ as many of the preachers are today. Everywhere he went felt the effects of this ‘strange power’. He said it would cut people down like with a sword.
In his words, this is what PRAYER was like:
“… I was constrained to pray without ceasing. Some of my experiences alarmed me… I would say to God that He had made a promise to answer prayer, and I could not, and would not be denied. I felt so certain He would hear me, and that faithfulness to His promises and to Himself, rendered it impossible that He should not hear and answer, that frequently I found myself saying to Him, “I hope You don’t think that I can be denied. I come with Your faithful promises in my hand, that God would answer prayer- and I cannot be denied”. I cannot tell how absurd unbelief looked to me, and how certain it was, in my mind, that God would answer prayer- those prayers that, from day to day, hour to hour, I found myself offering in such agony and faith. I had no idea of the shape the answer would take, the locality in which the prayers would be answered, or the exact time of the answer… I felt myself strengthen in the Divine Life, put on the harness for a mighty conflict with the powers of darkness, and expected soon to see a far more powerful outpouring of the Spirit of God…”
That’s the real deal. Power to Pray in the Spirit of Might. Power that changes the world through demonstrations and wonders. PRAYER that DARES to make a demand.
This is what Paul Cain saw coming. This is what Bob Jones died believing. They saw over a billion souls coming in a wave of Power. This is what Smith Wigglesworth testified would come, a great move to shape the whole world. What of Arthur Burke and others?
If Mike Bickle is right, then in this generation something HUGE is going to change WITHIN US. God spoke to him in Egypt, that He would change the expression of Christianity in ONE generation and it would never be irrelevant again. The words resonated through his whole body and mind. Each word echoed and carried deep layers of meaning.
Mike Bickle pursued the iHOP vision. The youth movement is still growing with an astonishing 25,000 gathering for the next ONE THING event.
Mike Bickle caught something from God, the mandate for prayer and continual worship. The Power House.
I have seen it in my dreams. A radical generation is being birthed from the ashes of religion.
In light of this, forgetting what is behind, we must press on. Beyond church. Beyond politics. Beyond ministry. Beyond ourselves. To SURGE we must move together into the Future.
Thanks for letting me share my thoughts. Again feel free to disagree or think differently.
