Dear Jennifer, I am delighted to say that all our prayers have been answered and the precious Glory Ring "Established by God" arrived safely on the 30th March, which was our 43rd Wedding Anniversary - what an amazing thing to be entrusted with on our special day. I know that many others have used the same words but they are still true for me - it was with absolute joy and delight that I opened your wonderful gift and saw the beautiful Glory Ring for the first time. Before exploring the other wonders of the box, for which many, many thanks, my first thought was to look carefully at all the scarves on the Glory Ring. The variety and richness of the various components brought amazed comments from me as I shared them with Robin, my husband. I was even more awe struck when I eventually listened to your comments on the cassette - Holy Spirit had drawn my attention to everything that you spoke about. I am particularly excited about the golden badge and its symbols. God has burdened us both with a love for Israel and He has taken us on several prophetic and intercessory trips both to Israel and other countries during the last six years to open up spiritual highways for His chosen people to come back to the Land. We have been given special insight into Jesus as THE LION OF JUDAH and as it is our experience that in most English churches this whole area of Jesus as the Jewish Messiah and the Lion of Judah is either lacking or misunderstood, I am delighted to know that, each time the Glory Ring is raised in worship, Yeshua Ha'Machiach is being worshiped and acknowledged in all His fullness. How wonderful that we also have represented in this one small item a double portion of the Heart of God and the Shield of God. Both of these things, after much prayer, are now being released and taught to English Christians as never before - Thank You, Father, for confirming Your love for England in this way. I think that Robin e-mailed you last time about our involvement with an itinerant worship ministry called Xalt? We were drawn into this ministry because The Lord has been using us with flags and Shofars to proclaim the prophetic, as Holy Spirit leads, since 1998. We were prayed for at a Conference called - "Be Not Silent Day Or Night" to be released into greater creativity. ~This conference was very powerful and our first real introduction into how important Israel is in God's end time plans and time table. This was the first place that we saw flags used in worship (although here we call them banners) and were encouraged to use them. At first I made them and Robin used them - the Lord has used him to powerfully impact people worldwide into more freedom in worship. I really related to what you said in one of your books about only wanting to worship the Lord privately. For a long time I felt "on show" when I used banners publicly but eventually The Lord released me to minister in this way too. It is also wonderfully encouraging for me to hear about how Holy Spirit leads you to produce the Glory Rings. I have had very clear instructions for some of the banners I have made especially two Bridal Banners that the Lord led me to make before we went on a mission trip to the Inuit people. He told me step by step what I was to do but it wasn't until we were in Iqaluit that He started to tell me what all the symbolism meant. In fact, as we worshipped and ministered, I came to realise that He had already planned everything that happened on that trip before we left England. I was truly humbled before Him that He would be as gracious as use these banners in such a prophetic way. I love the scarf with the horse and the horseshoes - we are beginning to recognise here in England how important it is to be ready to ride with the Lord the moment He calls. We have also had prophetic words about Jesus holding the reins until exactly the right time. Lord, keep us from riding ahead of You or from lagging behind. The Paul Revere scarf also caught my attention before I heard you speak about it. We have actually been to the church in Boston in whose tower the signal lantern was lit as Paul Revere rode to warn that the British were coming. The Lord showed us much about the war between England and America when we were in Boston and Philadelphia and we were led to pray prayers of repentance on behalf of our English government and army so we fully endorse the power of having this scarf on a Glory Ring that God will use in this nation. Thank you so much for expanding our knowledge of the colours. God has given us some insight into His language of colours and Robin has led Banner Workshops both here and abroad using the Scriptures, colours and symbols connected with banners etc from the Bible but it is always wonderful to share with others what God has shown them and we are very blessed to receive so much more in this area from you. I also love the information about the symbols and numbers, again some of them the Lord has already revealed but many He is now revealing through you. I have mentioned Xalt as being an itinerant ministry and The Lord is planning an exciting year for us as we start to travel to other places in England. I am so excited that we shall be able to take the Glory Ring to other parts of our land. It has already had its first "outing" to the very place signified by the scarf in the very centre of the ring. Yesterday we were in the City of London! We drove right along the River Thames and we passed The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and were within a stone's throw of Nelson's Column, which is in Trafalgar Square - The National Gallery forms one side of the square. We parked our car right near Tower Bridge and could see the dome of St Paul's Cathedral. The only places we didn't drive or walk right near were Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly Circus. Our destination was a church called St Mary's Lothbury where we spent the day praying for the Jews living in England to be called back to Israel by God. We have been involved with this group praying for British Aliyah for more than 4 years. There have been many prayer walks, especially in London where a large amount of Jewish people live, much prophetic praying as God has shown us the stumbling blocks that have been spiritually blocking the Jews going home and we have also shed tears of repentance for all the terrible things done and said over the years by our governments, the church and the people of England against God's chosen people. Yesterday our leaders said that they felt God was saying that this season is coming to an end and a new one will begin soon. The afternoon was given over to worship in grateful praise for all God has done so I was able to use the Glory Ring. I briefly explained about it and everyone was touched and felt the power of the Holy Spirit moving amongst us - how blessed everyone was when The Lord released me to say that He had heard all the prayers offered up for our Jewish brothers and sisters and He would establish them on earth as they were already established in heaven. Hallelujah! Dear Jennifer there are so many things that I would love to share with you but I am conscious that you need to know that this wonderful gift to us and to England has arrived safely. I would have e-mailed sooner but as you can see there has been no time since the parcel arrived as we traveled up to London on Friday to be there first thing Saturday morning. I shall be taking the Glory Ring to our church fellowship this evening and to the intercessors group that meets to pray for Xalt tomorrow, Monday. God Bless you, there are not enough words to express our thanks to you but I hope you catch the excitement and expectation that are in my spirit as I look forward to worshiping our wonderful Lord and seeing Him release His glory into England.
