CTNTP has been careful to keep out of the ‘Brexit fray’, The whole subject has become a very difficult one for The Church at large in our nation, as within our congregations, like during the Referendum, many hold one position, many the other. It has divided us, at the very time when The Lord is surely saying, we must be ‘As One’.
Our view is that The Lord has already gone far ahead of us! His overall plans and purposes for the United Kingdom have been in place from the beginning of time. They are good plans, plans that give us a real hope and future. It is all to easy for us to react, to ‘knee-jerk’ to the daily pendulum swing of news and commentary.
We are not absolved from the responsibility of prayer and of seeking The Lord, for He works alongside us, ‘co-labours’ with us. It is a great mystery, but He truly uses us to bring His plans to fruition. Prayer leads to ‘mission’ – we must hear from Heaven and deliver our personally assigned part in God’s plan.
We have already believed the Lord is speaking to many Christians in Britain about releasing a ‘sound of heaven’ over our Land, for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Read more about this – click here. The plans of the enemy are defeated when God’s people rise up, and standing in love and unity, stand, sing, speak and declare His Glory! (See 2 Chronicles 20). This should surely be our focus?
A Prophetic Word from Quiver
We have been made aware of a Statement from the Christian prayer organisation, Quiver, written by its Convenor, Jennifer Abigail Lawson Wallace, that was released a couple of days ago. This powerfully speaks into the Brexit situation and is reproduced below. As usual, we ask you to weigh the words before The Lord.
We are in a time where we must keep our eyes fixed on heaven, let The Holy Spirit direct your thoughts and prayers, not the BBC (or other) news!
A STATEMENT FROM QUIVER CONCERNING BREXIT – 24 November 2018
Last Tuesday was exactly two years ago, when we finished the intercessory journey around the UK. I had totally forgotten about that, but was at a prayer meeting at Emmanuel Centre on Tuesday 20th November, when the Holy Spirit reminded me. He said “Today is exactly two years since you completed your intercessory journey around the UK.”
He began to remind me of the things He said at the end of that assignment; that He has taken control over the nation, and that whatever transpires, we should rest assured that He is in control. After the assignment, He had also said to me, “I will take you to Buckingham Palace and there you’ll complete this task, for I have taken over the nation.” A few months later, I attended the Queen’s garden party at Buckingham Palace, and there, I proclaimed Psalm 45 over the nation, declaring that Christ will rule this land with the Church, His Bride!
Since then, even though we have continued to pray concerning Brexit, the focus of the Lord to us at QUIVER has been the Church. To pray and prepare her to rise up boldly and work. The Lord need His Church to stand firm, and prepared and ready to reach out to the nation again. (Haggai 2). Hence our 36 days of fasting and prayer throughout the year, which concludes next week.
However, whenever I have felt panicky about the current situation with Brexit, I have been reminded that the LORD IS IN CONTROL AND WILL HAVE HIS WAY. I have a deep sense of peace, and the Lord has asked us to enter into rest and praise Him.
The Lord gave 2 Chronicles 20
In the midst of a fierce threat of war from several nations, King Jehoshaphat declared to Judah and Jerusalem “Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets and you shall prosper.” Then he assigned worshippers to go before the army. They declared, “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.”
We, therefore, believe that this is not the time to panic but rather hold on to every prophetic word received regarding the UK, and stand firm and declare it. This is the time to believe that God answers prayer and He has heard and will answer and help us. This is the time to praise, worship and thank God and ask Him to glorify His name.
Indeed it’s not by might but by His Spirit. Who are you O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain. And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!!!” Zechariah 4:6-7
As I prayed last night, I heard word: “The outcome of Brexit has already been determined in the courts of heaven.” We, therefore, believe that the counsel of God alone shall stand in regards to Brexit! No human being shall determine the outcome, God has already determined it.
After, praying last night, the Lord asked me to make a Prophetic Declaration over Britain. (I have an audio recording of this). After making the prophetic declaration, I had a vision of the Lord as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! I saw the Lion but He was with a Lioness. (This the first time I have seen the Lion with a Lioness). With this I had an assurance that the Lord, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is with His Bride, the true Church. Jesus Christ is with us in this battle for our nation. Victory belongs to Jesus.
Let us do what King Jehoshaphat and Judah did, and stand firm on His word, promises and prophecies to our nation. Let us stand in faith and believe in the Lord’s ability to deliver. Let us have a confident assurance in our God and praise, worship and thank Him. Let us stand still and firm and see the salvation of our God. PSALM 46. Amen!!!

“Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway! Take out the stones; lift up a banner for the peoples!” – Isaiah 62:10. Jesus Christ is soon coming!!!
