Part 1. The Road
I was upstairs, at home, on the evening of Thursday 30th January 2020 musing and praying.
I was reminded, and I didn’t then know why, of something The LORD had given me back in 2006. So, I go downstairs and search it out.
Here it is:
The Road 2006
Towards the end of 2006, I believe The LORD gave me a Word about — “Making straight the way for Him”.
It focused on the poor state of the roadways, here in the North East (NE) of England and the deteriorating facades of the various buildings running alongside.
They were being temporarily repaired, and “made up,” in order that the cracking, fading cosmetic coverings of religion, be “covered up” and given a face lift.
Along with the roads, the highways and the byways, with their accompanying ruts and potholes “filled in,” lest the seed of the many evangelists already historically scattered within its ground and thoroughfares over the many years, be awakened by a refreshing rain from The LORD.**
Their words, over the centuries, will fulfill the purposes for which they were sent and revival (in this instance) particularly to the North East of England (as understood back in 2006) will come forth. For here in the NE, it is called “the graveyard of evangelists”
But Jesus says today, as He said back then … “If you will believe, you will see the glory of God,” (John 11:40). This was said, at the graveside of Lazarus.
When the road is broken up, it will break up, that which covers and reveal the seed in the rubble, below, underneath the road. The seed and the inherent growth of it will come forth as His rains come and bring it alive.
He said “Pray not that the roadways and facades be repaired, but pray rather, that they be broken up, even more.”
Part 2. The Roundabout
A second word was given me in March of the following year, 2007.
It is a continuance of what He desires, proposes and will do. This time, using the roads in a very different way. Be blessed and be encouraged. These two words are linked
The Roundabout 2007
I saw a roundabout, pretty much like you will find all over the country, the United Kingdom. Not a mini roundabout but one that had a large, solid, circular construction with grass and space in its middle.
Running into and from it were many roads. Some cars were just arriving, at a point where they took their turns to enter and then exit off the roundabout on their chosen route. Others had already exited the roundabout and were already travelling on their desired route.
As the volume of traffic grew, I noticed that the cars already further along their exit roads were beginning to get snared up, as if there were a blockage further down their chosen route.
So much so, that eventually these cars were almost backing back up to the roundabout they had just come off.
This meant that the other cars currently joining, and the ones behind them, attempting to enter and exit from the roundabout were unable to do so.
As the cars that had gone before them had no where to go. Due to the pressure build up, they could not even reverse to take another route to escape the confines.
This roundabout and many that God has placed is a place of entry and exit.
It is a place of going to and from apparent destinations. Part of the reason the traffic is slowing down, ensnaring and backing up, is that there are many different road works, with their very many traffic lights, which are limiting the flow in the volume of traffic.
This is also happening on many, many of the roads and many connecting roundabouts and not just one. All at the same time.
The multiple and increasing presence of traffic lights*** and the road works are contributing to this, but they have been ordered by Him … have been ordered and planned for the roadways of man.
For both individuals, organisations and the church and are creating, a breaking down in the thoroughfares of life. Bringing choking and chaos in its wake.
There is no longer an easy way through. Eventually the roads will get clogged up and the roadways and traffic ensnared.
Life though needing to go faster will go slower than the need to advance. Snare up. They will find themselves and their way forward blocked.
God is putting people in touch with their roundabouts and man’s efforts to pave a way for himself will be frustrated.
Man will find an increased inability in their way to go forward at the pace and to the places of their choice. Man will be unable to exercise the type of choice he desires.
This is primarily because, they have not travelled in His Way, in Gods way for them, and they are experiencing this paralysing state.
The roundabout represents Christ, the immovable object. His will and way will always remain. But the blockage will be a sign of a constipated people and a frustrated nation.
They will become more constrained in their efforts to move in the desired direction. Jesus Christ is Lord. They will all have to come back to Christ. He is the Hub, the centre, the fulcrum of all entrances and exits.
But the blocked roads are known… and that they will lead men BACK to HIM.
Those closest to the roundabout, will now experience the closeness of Him.
Yet the last will be the the first, those at the end of their queue, will go forward for they shall encounter Him despite their position.
Included are the sick, the lame, the little, the last… those farthest away from obtaining what they need. These are the halt, “at halt” at the end of the queue. These ones, here at their roundabout, will meet their Christ.
He is the Island, amongst the way of humanity. He is without circumference or fence, whose edges are not sharp, angular and harsh like man’s. For the manifestation of His shape and nature will mould and conform man to Himself.
I saw suddenly, the roundabout(s) take a form. Not in its shape, but it became alive.
I saw the feet of Christ, planted in the Centre of the roundabout. So that all along, the circular shape of the roundabout, I saw the garment of Christ and it’s hem, hang down, vertically over the edge of its perimeter.
His person stood mighty and oh so tall and He was “lit up”. His shining brilliance covered in glory, with the hue of His grace, presence and Person, towering high amidst the scene. But grounded, standing on man’s earth.
Man had tried and still tries to build its own Tower of Babel. One, to become like God and two, to escape any punishment, any flood that God would send.
But he has heard the cries of the many little ones; those ensnared and under the bondage of Egypt. Caught up in the midst of the way of man and the chosen pathways of their own desire — He has (will) is, come down. Alighting and “lit bright and high” in our midst.
At the edges of his “hanging robe”, we, His own are sown into its hem. With many, many more to be fitted in.
At the edge, at the hem there is a silvery hue and shimmer and many flashes of light, even lightning — as His own reach up to him, He responds and reaches down. Power flows from His robe to His hem, silvery flashes in a circumference of redemptive grace.
Here, in the God chosen places of the roundabouts of life, God will raise Himself up and stand apart from the confusion of man.
He will place His own citadel whose focus, edge and confine will be him. Christ the centre, Christ the focus.
For He is already ascended in heaven, already as His King enthroned on mount Zion. Here at the edge of His roundabout, will He meet them at the edge of his garment, the place and Edge of His Glory.
As His hem drifts and fits over, Itself, touching individuals and organisations, due to the blockages that will come… He will touch its occupants, peoples and travellers.
Here, as they say “If only I can just touch Him”… they will find Him and find that He wants to be touched, yearns for the reach of our fragile, trembling hand.
Power will flow from Him to them… just as it was always meant to. The little shall reach up and stand tall in Him.
Man, believes it travels in its own day, that it is light enough to travel and that there will be no night.
That they will reach their destination, despite the signs of the closing days. In fact, man travels in the night, “that is” God’s day for them and the roundabout will be a sign to them…
Why?…for, the most lit places will be the roundabouts.
Because ALL, travel through the day of their night. And God has placed His roundabout in the day of our life, for you, for me and for His Church across the life of this ENTIRE nation.
He is drawing a map for Himself, for He has already plotted the paths of His Glory amongst the ways of man.
For He knows the ways of man and their destination, but He has come to seek and to save that which is lost and bring them home, welcoming them to Himself.
Part 3: Confirmation(s) 2020
But here below, is what moved me, to share.
The confirmation on the morning of Friday 31st January 2020, experienced the very next day, following the leading to search out the 2006/7 words.
Here also are some earlier, though fairly recent pointers (given between late 2019 and early 2020)
A number of days, prior, to re reading The Road 2006 and “seen” whilst in fellowship online … I saw a whole loaf of fresh bread within my stomach, engendering me to “Take, eat” — to eat for oneself and to give out. Its not just a picture for me, but for His Church.
The whole loaf Is the Church, and the Church, His body, is in the womb, the whole loaf is in the belly. “You are My Loaf.”
* even a week later, at our afternoon service … he reminded me of something His loaf stood for, His bread stood for : knowledge of My will, My healing and My deliverance.
** Also, “ He will come with the rains” … Hosea 6:3. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know The LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
*** Concerning “A harvest, the harvest and preparation”. The olive harvest being gathered. Harvested, by being, loosed off the tree with a long stick and gathered at the base of its tree in a net. The oil is released through the pressure of the method. For the olive, on the branch as it is, would taste bitter. But later, in release would taste sweet.
*** Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
*** the increasing and many similar and varied “ blockages and their traffic lights ”, that are occurring in many different places — reminded me of the different manifestations presently increasing all over the world, particularly in nature. Each different one compounding the other.
These recent “pointers” were “put together” on the night of Thursday 30th January, after reading the 2006/7 prophecies.
The very next morning, Friday the 31st., My wife and I, Sue, drove for our weekly shop towards the MetroCentre, just outside of Newcastle, along our usual route.
We suddenly encountered this long, long queue [line] of cars, for 600 yards, idling on the opposite side of the road, going the other way.
A road that is usually light in traffic, knowing few hold ups. Unwittingly, “I say … There must be traffic lights somewhere.”
The backed up queue of cars just continues to lengthen. There is hardly any movement, as we almost silently pass them. By now there is almost a hush in the air.
We continue on, until we ourselves, come to a stop along our side of the road and see a queue stretching forward in front of us, on our side.
We inch forward, forward, forward, until, we see a police van that already blocks the road and our path forward.
We are directed, diverted along a side road. The trouble is, everyone is going along this same side road. We and they, end up going along a stretch of road, that many, unexpectedly perhaps, are unfamiliar with.
As we continue, we follow and see the queue in front of us stop, and ahead of us, one by one, they turn back round. Passing us by, they continue via another route. That way ahead was also blocked.
We know where we are and we had already chosen a secondary destination via a familiar road we can adjoin. We take it and encounter no further trouble. We reach our destination, complete our business and return home, without further incident!
But the timing of it all and it’s nature, could not be ignored.
So having been prompted to find 2 separate, 14 year old prophecies, as well as, “aligning” separate and individual, fairly current scriptural pointers — that point back to 2006/7 prophecies … and to then find it all happening in the physical.
As a sign of His spiritual reality, it just shouted out “it’s time! It’s time!”
For these reasons I share with you now.
