From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
There are a lot of great words coming in about the recent historical shift of the UK leaving the European Union. Today, we are posting a couple of words for the UK as well as the long-standing relationship it has with America.
You'll read about this and much more in Charles Shamp's word as he shares some of his personal testimony and ministry reports over the UK.
Charles shares here:
I believe Great Britain and America are on a prophetic timeline that is leading to a massive outpouring of the Spirit once again. ...All the signs are lighting the way and the recent developments only make the picture become more clear that revival is near!
Be greatly encouraged in this testimony and the prophetic words over both the UK and America!

Our Testimony of Ministry Over the UK
For many years now, our family and ministry has had a burning desire for awakening and revival to return to Great Britain. Those that follow Destiny Encounters know that last year Brynn and I, along with our children, spent three months traveling across the United Kingdom ministering in every church or ministry group that would open its doors to us. There was a mandate in our hearts concerning sowing into the rich revival heritage of that land.
In fact, a year before, the spirit of intersession had come upon me and my close friend, Munday Martin, while we were at a lunch meeting with the Heartbeat team that hosted us in England. I laid prostrate on the floor weeping and praying for the nation in a home outside the city of Norwich. God was placing in my heart a deep burden for those beautiful lands.
Upon returning home, I shared my heart with Brynn regarding what the Lord had placed in me. During that time the Lord spoke with me and said, "Son, whatever you sow into this land you will reap for your nation, America."
When I shared this with Brynn, our hearts began to burn within us with a mandate to see Britain come alive with another awakening. This word was confirmed just a few months later when Chuck Pierce called me out and prophesied that God would use us on Island Nations to shift governments. I told Chuck this was a total confirmation of what the Lord had spoken to us about going to the United Kingdom. He laughed and said, "Praise God...that's a big island, go for it!
With the help of a wonderful team of ministers and intercessors, we were able to spend three months traveling and ministering across the island. God did amazing miracles and although the meetings were not attended by hundreds of people, it was a significant time of sowing into the land to see change. Our love for the United Kingdom and its destiny had become such a passion in our hearts. We even felt very strongly to cancel a trip to Germany so we could stay longer in England to sow the Word.
Honestly, we felt one with the people and the land; it was supernatural. We also understood that seed takes time to grow and while we are not a mega ministry that could draw the masses to the meetings to hear what the Lord was telling us, we knew that God's Word never returns void and His Word carries mega impact. It has been awesome to see what the Lord has done this year as a result of those three months.
We Know in Part and We Prophesy in Part
God is doing mighty things, but we believe this is just the beginning! The realm of visions and prophesy is a place of seeing and knowing in order to create God's desire in the earth. However, the Bible is very clear that often times we are only shown in part and therefore prophesy in part. I believe that what takes place is that the prophet does his part and God does His part, and it creates a whole new world.
The place of visions is an environment of mystery where you are left to decipher and interpret a symbolic language that if the prophet was to be completely transparent, he often doesn't fully know everything that the Lord is showing him in the place of interpretation. The prophets only desire should be to yield as an oracle and as God's prophetic mouth piece in the earth release a "Thus says the Lord."'
Just like the Prophet Habakkuk says, "I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry" (Habakkuk 2:1-3).
I've at times found myself in this place of prophesying in a meeting and afterwards thinking I fully understood what God was saying in the spirit, only to come to the conclusion many months later that God was speaking on multiple levels that my natural brain couldn't fully comprehend. I have watched over the years as the word came to pass in ways that even caught me by surprise. To me, prophesy has been like pieces of a puzzle placed together to reveal the bigger picture of God's magnificent plan for the nations.
I've been cautious over the years to never give my personal opinion about politics. In fact, I try to avoid the conversation concerning any world politics because frankly, I believe personal opinion doesn't matter in world affairs. The only thing that matters are what the Lord speaks and the prophetic word shifts the natural world. I've only spoken when it was directed from a, "Thus says the Lord..."
Visions of Future Events
Last year while we were ministering in the United Kingdom, the Lord gave me two specific visions about future events. The first was a vision of a terrorist attack attempt on London that I saw during a meeting in Norwich at a Heartbeat gathering. This vision was very self-explanatory and we knew as Believers exactly what we must do. We prayed and as many remember several weeks later in June of 2015 there was a massive terrorist attack that was stopped.
The second was a vision and prophetic word that had deep symbolism and multiple layers of revelatory insight both naturally and spiritually for the future. The vision was concerning the United Kingdom and America and also was first given in Norwich at a heartbeat meeting. It was a vision of revival, awakening and freedom first coming to the U.K. and as a result it would come to America.
Words Over the UK and America
The word was, "The Lion must roar before the Eagle can fly!" I was shown in a vision a lion and an eagle. I then saw as the lion roared, the eagle took flight. The lion spoke to me of Great Britain and the roar of the Lord over the land - a roar of freedom and revival. The eagle taking flight spoke to me of America and her receiving freedom and awakening as a result of what would take place in Great Britain.
I released this word and later spoke to Alan Goldstone and David Cairns, leadership of the Heartbeat Team that we had been working with. We all felt it was a significant word for the United Kingdom and America - that the two were interlocked for a great awakening and until the United Kingdom was awakened America could not see another great outpouring.
I also believe that this word was tied into the recent vote for Great Britain to leave the European Union and is a direct fulfillment of this prophetic word spoken last year. It is a trigger point in the natural for what God is doing spiritually for the United Kingdom. I believe Great Britain and America are on a prophetic timeline that is leading to a massive outpouring of the Spirit once again.
All the signs are lighting the way and the recent developments only make the picture become more clear that revival is near! When we study out the history of revival in the earth over the past several centuries, we can almost single handedly point to the United Kingdom as a major hot spot and catalyst for what the Holy Spirit was doing at that time. Almost every major shift of reformation or revival started on these Island Nations.
Whether we are discussing the First and Second Great Awakenings, or go further back and discuss the mystics and catholic miracle workers that walked the shores of England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales – God has always seemed to release the fresh movement of the Holy Spirit on these Islands that has gone on to affect the entire earth.
My love for Church history and the moves of the Spirit caused me to recognize that what took place within these nations directly affected America and the move of the Spirit in my nation. Although we are an ocean away, we are connected in the realm of the Spirit, and as the song of Heaven would arise over the UK, it would carry all the way to the shores of America and revival would begin to come forth in these United States.
Over the past several years that we have been traveling into the UK to minister, our greatest hope and prayer has been that God would once again ignite these Islands with the wild fire of Heaven. From the moment that I first stepped into a meeting in the nation of Wales back in 2010, I could feel something fresh was being birthed in the spirit, something organic, something that would turn the world upside down! Something massive has shifted, the lion is roaring and revival is coming. The earth is shaking and God's Kingdom is coming.
I know many fear change and when it comes there is often turbulence that causes people to be uncertain about the future, but surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.
The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
I tell you in confidence, not from someone who is speaking what God is saying after the fact, but from one that has seen before hand, that God is setting both the United Kingdom and America up for another massive awakening. We are the generation that will not just see revival, but we are those who will decree it into existence as sons and daughters of the Kingdom of God.
I want to leave you with this word Great Britain: God has not given you a spirit of fear United Kingdom, but He has given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Great Britain - your greatest days of glory are upon you!
