Words & Prophesies

Here are a few words and prophesies that were given to Beacon Church

A word from Deryk Green for Whitchurch - 03/11/2015

Man has turned his highway from Whitchurch, his main roads skirt now the town, Attention forced ahead to new attractions, new markets. But God has Whitchurch as his Highway hub. He is building new ways into its centre. There the Beacon flames, light into the dark. Robed in white, you who attend and have found God, those coming will see you standing out for the King of Kings. Do not fear, your King is coming. Indeed He is with you! Never now will your light go out. Rather it will grow stronger, brighter, turning Whitchurch truly into White Church town for Me.


A word from Liz Cradock for the church - 31/12/2014

I felt I needed to share this... 
On Wednesday morning, while thinking about the worship for Sunday and about what God has in store for us this year, He gave me a really exciting picture/revelation. 
It started with God reminding me of a picture He gave me at the Worship Central Conference. On that occasion I had a picture of waves crashing on a beach, with tongues of fire 'riding' on the crest of each wave. I also sensed God saying that 'the tide is turning'. (Tim Hughes also spoke about 'The Wave' during the final evening session - about waves coming in and about God being at work...) This time I sensed that the waves are of differing sizes - ranging from huge waves you can surf, to tiny ripples that just about manage to break onto the beach. 
God really impressed on me that this is all about revival!

I believe God is saying that revival will come in different ways for different people and different churches. It may come as a huge wave that has a major impact on all it encompasses, or it may be a ripple that only affects one or two people.

I also had a strong sense that God wants to dismantle the walls/barriers in peoples' lives. Some may pull their walls down completely, some may only pull a couple of bricks out. Again this is all about revival (and renewal) - which needs to start in our own hearts... Then on Wednesday night, I sensed God again saying that the tide is turning - the waves are coming in! And what they bring in with them will not be pretty. The tide will not clean the beach, but instead will bring with it the rubbish and stuff we would rather not deal with. We will have a clean up job to do...And we need to be prepared to get our hands dirty...God does not want 'clean' middle class churches. He wants churches that enfold those on the fringes of society, those who are at the mercy of various addictions, etc... 
God wants to challenge us!
(PS I don't believe this revelation is solely directed at Beacon.) 
Blessings Liz


Jamie Muir quoting William Booth during sermon of 28/12/2014 

William Booth (10 April 1829 - 20 August 1912), must have been somewhere towards the end of that century, said of the 20th century in answer to an enquiry, 

"I consider the chief dangers that will confront the coming century will be, 
Religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ,
Forgiveness without Repentance,
Salvation without Regeneration,
Politics without God,
And Heaven without Hell."

Interestingly, virtually all six of those things have become the norm in our day and age.
