|Prophetic word to the Church and Nation of Britain|
The following is a prophetic word received by Stewart Dool (who heads up Intercessors for Britain) in the week 23-27 July 2007. It has been weighed and tested by others in senior positions of ministry.
TO THE CHURCH AND NATION OF BRITAIN
I am about to send fire upon you, the fire of My judgment, and it will consume on the right and on the left. All who have spurned My ways and My words will reap what they have sown, for in My burning anger I will judge the gods in whom you have put your trust, the gods of materialism and covetousness. The gold and the silver will be taken from you, and your portion will be emptiness, desolation and vanity.
I will bring the stability of your currency into doubt, to show you that it is I alone who caused you to prosper in the past. I raised you to prominence among the nations and gave you authority over many peoples: so you became rich, and boasted in your wealth, but I will bring you low, and the nations over whom you once ruled will say “What has happened to this great nation?”
As you have feared other gods, and not feared Me, so I will visit your deeds upon you. Your idolatries have led you astray, and you have become like those before whom you bow down. I commanded your fathers that they should not fear the gods of the nations, but you have not obeyed Me. Therefore I have given you into the hands of abominations and all manner of uncleanness.
Darkness will envelope those who have led my people into false light, for I will no longer forbear in my wrath. I will blind them, and they shall stumble in the perversity of their ways. Many shall follow them into darkness and be taken in the snare of the wicked, for they have loved to wander, and they have not watched the path of their feet.
My people give heed to those who prophesy a lie, and they delight in the teachers of falsehood. They run to those who steal from them by their destructive heresies, for they cannot discern the paths of righteousness. A wave of deception is about to break forth that will sweep many away, therefore take heed to yourselves, and cling to the word of My truth. I am bringing My Church to a time of testing, and I will search the hearts of all who call upon My name, and I will know those who are mine, and they shall know their God.
My displeasure will be visited upon your Government, for those who rule over you have become offensive to Me, as they have set aside My laws and My statutes, exalting the wicked and despising My holy name. You have not abhorred bloodshed, therefore the blood of your sons and daughters will lie in your streets, until you learn that as the cry of the unborn calls to me for vengeance, so I shall require it of you.
All these things I will do, because you have rejected Me, and thought that your own power could save you. Yet even now, if you will cry out to Me, and turn from your wickedness, I will spare. Nevertheless, I will chasten you in measure, and you shall know that I am the Lord. My beloved ones, the hour of My patience will not continue much longer. I call your therefore to seek my face with earnestness and zeal, that I may extend compassion to your land and people.
|A Prophetic Creed|
Back in the 19th century the great Anglican Bishop of
I BELIEVE that the world will never be completely converted to Christianity by any existing agency before the end comes. In spite of all that can be done by ministers, churches, schools and missions, the wheat and the tares will grow together unto the harvest. And when the end comes, it will find the earth in much the same state as it was when the flood came in the days of Noah (Matthew 13.24-30, 24.37-39).
I BELIEVE that the widespread unbelief, indifference, formalism and wickedness, which are to be seen throughout Christendom, are only what we ought to expect in God’s Word. Troublous times, departures from the faith, evil men waxing worse and worse, love waxing cold, are things distinctly predicted. So far from making me doubt the truth of Christianity, they help confirm my faith. Melancholy and sorrowful as the sight is, if I did not see it I should think the Bible was not true (Matthew 24.12, 1 Timothy 4.1, 2 Timothy 3.1, 13, 14).
I BELIEVE that the grand purpose of this dispensation is to gather out of the world an elect people, and not to convert all mankind. It does not surprise me at all to hear that the heathen are not converted when missionaries preach and that believers are a little flock in any congregation in my own land. It is precisely the state of things, which I expect to find. This is a dispensation of election, and not of universal conversion (Acts 15.14, Matthew 24.13).
I BELIEVE that the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is the great event which will wind up the present dispensation, and for which we ought daily to pray. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, ‘Come Lord Jesus’ should be our daily prayer. We look backward, if we have faith to Christ dying on the cross, to His resurrection from the dead, and we ought to look forward no less, if we have hope, to Christ’s coming again (John 14.3, 2 Timothy 4.8, 2 Peter 3.12).
I BELIEVE that the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ will be a real, literal, personal, bodily coming; and that as He went away in the clouds of heaven with His body, before the eyes of men, so in like manner He will return (Acts 1.11).
I BELIEVE that after our Lord Jesus Christ comes again the earth shall be renewed and the curse removed; the devil shall be bound, the wicked shall be punished; and that before He comes there will be neither resurrection, judgment, nor Millennium, and that not until after He comes shall the earth be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord (Acts 3.21, Isaiah 25.6-9, 1 Thessalonians 14-18, Revelation 20).
I BELIEVE that the Jews shall ultimately be gathered again as a separate nation, restored to their own land and turned to the faith of Christ (Messiah) (Jeremiah 30.10-11, 31.10, Zechariah 12.10, Romans 11.25-6).
I BELIEVE that the literal sense of Old Testament prophecies has been too much neglected by the churches, and is far too much neglected at the present day, and that under the mistaken system of spiritualising and accommodating Bible language, Christians have too often missed its meaning (Luke 24.25-6).
I BELIEVE that the Roman Catholic Church is the great predicted apostasy from the faith, and is Babylon and Antichrist, although I think it highly probable that a more complete development of Antichrist will yet be exhibited to the world (2 Thessalonians 2.3-11, 1 Timothy 4.1-6).
I BELIEVE that it is for the safety, happiness and comfort of all true Christians to expect as little as possible from churches or Governments under the present dispensation, to hold themselves ready for tremendous convulsion and changes of all things established, and to expect their good things only after Christ’s second advent. I am well aware that the views I have laid down appear to many persons very gloomy and discouraging. The only answer I make to that charge is this: Are they Scriptural?
Yes, Bishop Ryle, they are Scriptural. The question we would ask is ‘Would J.C. Ryle be a Bishop in the Church of England today?’
They all believed...
- The Lord Jesus-Christ (The α and Ω) is risen indeed ... (Luke 24.34)
- Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household (Acts 16.31)
- ...It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement.
So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him,
He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation (Hebrews 9.27-28)
