Not sure how you will all feel about this, but here goes.
At Emerge this weekend, God spoke to me in a vision about London.
I saw hands holding people of all different denominations, race, colour, age and socio economic status with Big Ben and a Red London Bus on the right hand side and left hand side of the two hands, respectively.
I then was given these verses and told to read them in this order - not to jumble them up. All from New Living Translation:
John 3 v 18
'There is no judgement awaiting those who trust Him. But those who do not trust Him have already been judged for not believing in the only Son of God.'
Isaiah 5 v 6
'I will make it a wild place. I will not prune the vines or hoe the ground. I will let it be overgrown with briers and thorns. I will command the clouds to drop no more rain on it.' - context is the Lord's Vineyard
Jeremiah 13 v 9
'The Lord says ' This illustrates how I will rot away the pride of Judah and Jerusalem. They stubbornly follow their own desires and worship idols..'
Deuteronomy 6 v 10
'The Lord your God will soon deliver you into the Land He swore to give your forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It is a land filled with large, prosperous cities that you did not build.'
Although we are living in a crazy time, people will look to God and He will keep them safe. He is watching. Firstly, we know we are Jesus never condemns us. Praise God and He will resuce us. We need fear nothing. Step out into the world and shake it up for JC is coming soon. We WILL see miracles in our own lives and in the lives of those for whom we think our prayers have gone unanswered.
Then, as I walked home to Clapham Junction, the Lord gave me another vision.
I have had a vision of the Middle East several times now when praying and today, as I walked through the train station, I saw the cross of Jesus hovering above the countries of Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan & Pakistan.
It hovered above these countries like a missile about to land. It was burning like magnesium - powerful, strong heat radiated from it. It wasn't upside down - it looked like if it landed in the ground it would stand straight up just like at Calvary.
But JC told me that it wasn't ready to break up these countries just yet.
Immense joy and peace swept over me all through this and I grinned right the way through Clapham until I got home.
Then the Lord told me that once the army comes in from the East, the Holy Cross of the Risen Saviour will blast in to these countries and they will exist no more.
He said that China is advancing towards the Middle East but God will save whatever calamity may take place before the cross is planted there. 'For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.' John 3 v 16, 17.
It would be great to know if anyone else has had siimilar words/visions.
Please pass this on to whoever you think may need it.
Primarily, I have sent it to people living in London - Revival is coming to our city. Hold fast! Bring it on!! The Christians already living here are ready for it.
The other stuff about the middle East - I have absolutely no clue about any thing going on there - symbolism etc but it was clear and I know what I heard was from God.
