While in prayer today I sensed God speaking into the nation at this time of political upheaval (Brexit) and change. Sorry if any of these concepts offend anyone’s political views, but let me simply explain what I saw:
I saw Great Britain as a tree that once stood alone, but was now hidden among a great forest of many trees, having lost its distinction and unique purpose. Quite literally, for many in the public and many in power, there was little clarity, and a loss of true purpose under the dark, damp overgrown canopy created by the large forest.
But then change stirred. There was a shifting in the landscape, a splintering, a small but ultimately seismic shift, that brought about a definite divine change: While Britain did not stand completely alone, there was enough change in the branches around about and enough adjustment in the landscape to allow her distinct shape and purpose to be seen. Then I noticed that as the branches in the canopy of the forest had shifted, a new wave of sunlight hit the ground around her for the first time in a long time, and new life began to burst forth.
I believe God is saying, that while the political shifts that will take place over the next months and years will not bring about the clear and full political extreme “breakaway” that some have desired, a greater shift has indeed taken place in the heavenlies, throwing fresh light and fresh purpose, and a new surge of power from heaven will touch the land. There will become just enough distinction in the heavenlies over Great Britain for her divine purpose to be re-ignited.
As the fresh sunlight hits the ground, and the heavenly landscape adjusts, I see it is as though a divine defibrillator is at work, stirring the church in the nation once again. As sunlight warms the earth, seeds of ancient purpose, revivals and the prayers of saints over centuries, begin to warm, and the ground itself begins to stir…
A Fresh Uprising of Prayer
A fresh uprising, a surge of prayer, worship, praise and prophetic intercession is about to burst through the veins of the Church in Great Britain, brought by heaven itself. Meetings large and small, to worship, encounter and pray, will begin to build a new kind of canopy, a canopy of praise, that heaven’s kingdom will rest upon. Thousands of small prayer meetings, in cities and villages across the nation, will draw heaven near in this time. The King desires to be “enthroned on the praises of His people!” and He is preparing the heavens over Great Britain for His arrival!
Many have thought worship has already been renewed in recent decades, but a fresh uprising is about to take worshippers to a whole new level- It will be like heaven on earth at times.
In this time, do not look to the corridors of parliament for powerful changes in the nation, but look to the closets of the praying – the Church is the heart of power in the nation and the nations, and a fresh wave of prayer is about to sweep over the land. This uprising of prayer will lead to power – power among the saints on the streets, in workplaces, in communities and in places of influence, in ways many have never seen nor imagined before. The healing touch of heaven will be magnified in power as the Church prays and worships.
For Such a Time As This
Where many have “dug ditches,” creating channels of influence into communities over years through social action, and have become disappointed at the kingdom results, they will realise they have been digging “for such a time as this” – many inroads of influence into communities, the poor and the many spheres of influence in the nation, local and national, will become irrigation channels, filled with the prayers and the powers of a new season of heaven coming upon the nation. Many will realise they had been preparing the land “for such a time as this.”
As Britain attempts to readjust its position in Europe, there will also be a fresh uprising of compassion for mainland Europe,resulting in new waves of missionaries from Britain to the mainland, carrying this fresh prayer and power to community after community. I even see many that have travelled from African nations to the U.K. will also find themselves moving into mainland Europe. A compassionate move of missions, fuelled by prayer and armed with heavens power, is about to stir across the new landscape of Great Britain and Europe.
While many will complain that there are still too many political entanglements with Europe in the coming years, enough of a divine shift in the heavens will have taken place to release God’s divine sunlight on Great Britain. Focus on the fresh light shining from the heavens in this season, rather than the problematic purposes of man. There is a Greater divine work taking place than can ever be wrought by the human corridors of power.
Pray with me – “Father, Your Kingdom COME, Your will be done…in Great Britain, as it is in heaven!”
