The Queen: Prophetically Speaking !

I'm not usually fussed about hearing the annual Christmas message from Her Majesty, but I was flicking through the T.V. today and decided to stop on it.

Well...all I could think was that the Queen has either been reading a few blogs (highly unlikely I know), or something Higher is at work.

The Queen echoed exactly what Dan and myself have spoken about in our past couple blogs. She hi-lighted in particular the need to reach out to the vulnerable people in society, so that no one, particularly at this time of year should feel alone, lost or abandoned.

She spoke of Jesus of Nazareth who "...reached out and made friends with people whom others ignored or despised. It was in this way that He proclaimed His belief, that in the end we are all brothers and sisters in one human family".

The Queen then went on to say how the Christmas story draws attention to those who "...are on the edge of society", and how it is all too easy to pass them by.

She mentioned how all the religious teachings of the world will press the message that we are all responsible for the disadvantaged people in our societies.

In her summary, the Queen uses this statement,

"Because this would most rejoice His heart, let us remember in His name, the poor and the helpless, the cold, the hungry and the oppressed, the sick and those who mourn, the lonely and the unloved."

If the head of the Church of England can do this, then let's all pray that those who head up other churches around the world can start to do the same. As Her Majesty put said, it's what Jesus Himself did, and it would rejoice His heart to know we are doing the same.


  • What an awesome excellent post!! I am so proud of you and excited that you listened to the Queen's message and yet the Spirit of God within you pricked up your ears and you heard Him speaking through Her! That really shows to me the stirrings of a prophetic anointing coming upon you to be sensative to His voice and to respond to it!

    Thank you for sharing this with us - like you say, unless Her Majesty has been reading the blogs then it seems to me that God is stirring and sharing His concern on Her too!

    We would do well to hear when the Spirit is speaking across various sources and various situations and various prophets. Because it generally means that it is important and on His heart.

    "The oppressed" - let's make sure our focus in 2008 is that they get to experience His manifest Presence, might and glory because they have a right to encounter the God of love as we did and didn't deserve to!

    Keep blogging Scotty but above all keep listening to the Spirit! What would He have you say and write?!
