I would like to include here a short tribute from my friend Neville Stephens about our mutual good friend in the Lord, Colin Baines. Neville was in Saltburn with us last week and met up with Colin again after meeting him for the first time in Saltburn last year. We all love Colin very much, and I think Neville (in this article from his own blog) sums up what we all think of this dear brother in Christ.
Below is a photo of our dear saint in the Lord, Colin Baines from Leyburn, which was taken at Saltburn last week. Colin has been a Christian for over seventy years, and walks very closely with the Lord. His devotional on Thursday on Mary smelling of the "Odour Of Jesus" after washing the feet, and then and drying her Master with her own hair (John 12:3) was the highlight of the week for me, and many others from our time in the North East Yorkshire Christian Resort. He started his message with one of his many jokes (listed on this blog), which had us all crying with laughter. But by the end of his twenty minute devotional, he had us crying again, but this time with tears of joy and emotion in our eyes.

Colin is deaf in one ear, and with the help of a hearing aid, he can hear just a little in the other ear if you speak loudly. He has one glass eye, and has poor sight in the other. He had to use the largest print Bible available, and even then he had to use a magnifying glass to read his beloved Scriptures. He uses a walking stick, and gets about in a very hesitant manner.

Despite his ageing body, Colin is full of the joy of the Lord, and he knows that one day he will receive his new glorious resurrection body from Yeshua, and these "temporary" ailments will be a thing of the past. I also know he will receive that highly deserved accolade, "Well done my good and faithful servant. Enter thou into the joy of My presence" (Matthew 25:21). Please pray for Colin as he awaits these two highly merited rewards, for he is a true saint of the Lord and a shining light in this dark age in which we live. 


I have warned about deception on this blog many times, for I believe it is Satan's greatest weapon in these last perilous days. Here we have a prophecy warning against such deception. Similar to the prophecy given by the renowned Lance Lambert (below) regarding judgement from the Lord on the British Isles, here we have another prophecy of judgement on the church in Britain for its apostate state read out at Saltburn this week.

It was passed to me to be read out by our good friend Sally Richardson from London, and it is from the respected Pastor John Hayward: It reads as follows:

"Behold, I am bringing a further wave of deception to your shores, a stronger delusion. Many shall err and embrace this teaching and deception, and only those who have a heart for My purposes shall stand and warn of this My judgement upon a back-slidden, self-absorbed church.

Behold, I have sent it unto bringing a clearer division between My true church and that which is apostate. Behold, it will come, it will not tarry, and many are ripe for it, and ready to be led astray by it. What else could I do? How I have waited for repentance, but not a sound. Waited for a turning, but the masses would not. How they have despised My sacrifice and My altar. There is little weeping and much mirth; merriment which is not in accordance with what I am feeling.

As for My people, those who stand with Me, turn aside from that which is full of deception. Come of that which would make you err. Do not be entangled in deception. Be not lenient in your hearts lest you open the door to that which will lead you astray. Rather, call on Me. Hold fast to the head and cling to what is good. Seek Me and live. Hold to My Word, My ways, My teaching of you, and you shall be spared from all that will swallow up the unsuspecting. And pray, seek My face that some might escape this coming tide of deception, that there may be yet a testimony unto My Son in your land, a remnant that shall proclaim all that I stand for. See, I have spoken to you, discern My Word and live".


Do you ever wonder what is happening to the economy and the weather in Britain at present? Have another read of the prophecy made by the renowned Lance Lambert in August last year. It is quite chilling and startling!


Dear Friends, 

Hear the voice of the Lord, O Isles that I have so greatly loved and favoured. I the Lord the Almighty, I took you when you were nothing, clothed with skins and woad, and through My saving power, I made you great. When you were nothing, through My Word and your faith in Me, I lifted you and made you Great Britain.

Through many awakenings and many revivals, stage by stage, I took you until you became a great power with the greatest Empire in the history of the nations. From you My Gospel and My Word went throughout the world, and tens of thousands came into an experience of saving faith! That Empire with all its many failings and weaknesses was still one of the most just and righteous Empires of history.

Those Isles of yours were soaked with the blood of My faithful martyrs and its soil received the burnt ashes of those who would not renounce My Name, My Truth, and My Word. I, the Lord have not forgotten those who gave their all for Me!

But now the whole nation that I created and sustained has turned from Me. They paganise their land, state and institutions; there is no voice heard to warn the nation. False religion, the work of world rulers of darkness, cover your Isles; A Laodicean church, neither hot nor cold, rumbles on like machinery. It is a church where I am outside of its routine; its organisation and its methodology. It is Christianity without Me: Religion without Me!

My being is seared with pain, for judgement is determined against your land. I can do no other. I will destroy the vestiges of her greatness; I will return her to her first estate. I will wreck her economy, destabilise her in every way. I will change her climate, even her weather. I will prove to her that the way of the transgressor is hard and terrible. I will allow demonic forces held in check erstwhile by My Word and Gospel, and the living faith of so many, to become rampant in her social life, to the destruction of her society.

Will you who know Me and love Me go blind and dumb and deaf into this judgement? It is time for you who love Me, who are faithful to Me, to take action! Stand before Me and plead The Finished Work of My Son. At least cry out to Me, that there will be those who turn from darkness, from sin, and be saved. For whosoever shall call upon My Name in the midst of these judgements, I will save!

It will cost you everything to stand in the gap, but you will enter into My heart, and know deep fellowship with Me. Such travail conceived in your heart by My Spirit will cost your deeply, but it will end in My Throne and Glory.

Lance Lambert.

A 50-something year old Muslim man arrived at his seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn't want the seat. The seat was next to an elderly white woman reading her Bible.

 Disgusted, the Muslim man immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The man said "I cannot sit here next to this infidel." The flight attendant said "Let me see if I can find another seat." 

After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated "There are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class."   About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated "The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class.
It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class."  
Before the irate Muslim man could say anything, the attendant gestured to the elderly woman and said, "Therefore, ma’am, if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as the captain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person." 

Passengers in the seats nearby began to applaud while some gave a standing ovation! 

I say, can I get an Amen to that!  

Feel free to pass this one to others.



The alien/demon agenda is about to be initiated to confound Christians and destroy the Truths found in the Bible by introducing aliens onto the world scene. This is all a part of the ‘strong delusion’ that is going to usher in the one-world-religion of the Antichrist. Don’t believe the aliens no matter what they say and what they do (cure disease, stop wars, end famines, etc)…
Jesus is the only Truth, and the Bible has all the answers we need to counter this LIE from the enemy.

Presentation by Clay Eudaly from "Living Journey", giving this short video presentation of the lies propagated and portrayed in the successful Hollywood blockbuster film "Paul" which has been a smash hit for around two years now in cinema, video, and now on national television.

PS. For further information on how Satan uses fallen angels and demons to infiltrate the human race, to mingle the good and bad seeds, and to lead people astray (even believers in this short video), please scroll through the pages on this blog, and read the articles on "Jude, Enoch, And The Hybrids", and also "The Return Of The Nephilim". If you are not acquainted with this teaching, it will blow your mind! 


Here is an interesting little email I have received from a good friend, who is also a very reliable source. And here is silly little me thinking that the London Olympic Games was all about sport, fun, friendship, and sportmanship!!!



"There are plans for the evacuation of London and 100,000 troops are coming in via Woolwich barracks made up of regular Army, American regular army and European troops.
This could just be a precaution but the public should be made aware of the foreign invasion which is taking place right now. The troops are being held across London in various barracks once they've been through woolwich barracks.
I also have this information confirmed by an army officer who was shocked at all the foreign troops coming into London.
There is also a shipment of what are being described as casket linings, each
each casket can hold four or five people and 200,000 casket linings have been delivered we believe from America. This could all be precautionary in the event of a major terrorist attack".

These are not my words. This is a review of our lovely time in Swindon and Pontypool over the weekend, supplied by our good friends Neville and Hazel Stephens who organised the trip for us. We are very grateful to them for all of their efforts, and humbly submit their words taken from their blog at

"We were very priveleged last week to have Brian Gemmell from York, and The Bible Prophecy Foundation, perform a mini tour of our area, teaching us from a Biblical level you will find difficult to discover in our so called Evangelical Churches throughout the UK.

Brian is a highly respected Bible teacher and preacher, and is one of the best Bible Prophecy Expositors in the whole of Britain. Not only were we very blessed to receive his superb ministry, but we were also a little fortunate to have Brian at all. He only stood in at short notice as a tremendous favour to us, to replace the cancelled Prophecy Weekend planned with Bob Mitchell, who is not well enough to travel and preach at present. 

Brian had only just returned from a whole month in the USA on May 31st, yet despite jet lag and general tiredness, Brian spoke at a Prophetic Teaching weekend in Southport on June 2nd and 3rd, before coming down to Swindon on the 7th, Pontypool on the 8th and 9th, then leaving Saturday evening to travel up to Reddish in Stockport to take further meetings on the 10th!!!

At Swindon on the Thursday, Brian, Gilly and Kathleen were hosted by the splendid Tony and Diane McLellan as they seek to get an exciting meeting off the ground in this major Wiltshire town. He took as his subject EVENTS THAT MUST TAKE PLACE IN THE TRIBULATION (at Tony's request), and for over an hour and a half, the teacher from York had Swindon's larger than normal audience spellbound as he expounded on Daniel 9, Matthew 24, Leviticus 26, but primarily on Revelation 6, and the judgements to come upon this earth of ours on people who have missed out on the Rapture, and instead have chosen to follow the Antichrist of Satan.

Having crossed the Severn Bridge into South Wales, the Gemmell contingent made their way to Pontypool for the Friday evening session, via the usual splendid hospitality of dear Nancy Williams at her fabulous 17th century farmhouse in Bassaleg, near Newport.

This meeting was the first of five for a Pontypool Prophecy Teaching Weekend titled "THE BATTLES OF THE LAST DAYS". Part One on the Friday was called "IT'S WAR!", then on the Saturday Brian took four further sessions under the headings of "PROPHESIED LITERAL BATTLES";  "WORLD WAR THREE!";  "SPIRITUAL BATTLES"; and a final uplifting and emotional talk called "VICTORY". This was followed by his usual entertaining "Question and Answer Session" to round off a superb day of teaching and fellowship.

There is far too much to cover in a short review such as this, as the Glaswegian expounded delightfully in his dulcet Scottish tones through many prophetic passages from the Scriptures, covering topics such as The Last Days "Perilous Times" of 2 Timothy 3; The Prophesied Literal Battles of Psalm 83, Amos 1:3-5; Isaiah chapters 17 and 19, The Gog and Magog War of Ezekial 39 and 39, and The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse of Revelation 6. 

He also warned of the rising dangers of Islam, Apostasy in the what we would call the Evangelical Church, the rise of New Age and Occultic teachings; the rise of the "Emerging New Church" with its false jesus; Satanism in its many guises (and not just demonic and occultic), Secular Humanism, Atheism, Declining Morality throught the world; Worshipping the gods of Mammon, Materialism, Sport, Filmstars, Worldy icons etc; The shocking low standards of modern "Christian" Television with its false teachers, money-orientated TV Evangelists, plus frivilous and vacuous programmes, and a host of other subjects too numerous to mention here.

However, our good friend Keith Cline from Bristol was on hand to record all five meetings to a high standard, and they will be available to purchase as a complete DVD set for just £12 in a week or so. You can contact him via email at, if you would like to order a copy, or just contact me and I will be pleased to pass on your request. 

Everyone commented on the warm fellowship and the dynamic teaching of the anointed Scot from York , and we prayed over Brian, Gilly, and Kathleen on the Saturday evening as they left for Stockport near Manchester to continue their superb service in their desire to please the Lord. We praise our great God and Saviour for the Gemmell family, and the blessings they bring whenever they travel in His Name".                
Shalom In Yeshua,


Chapter 2

Abraham & Sarah


Genesis 21:1-7
1 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.  3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him  whom Sarah bore to him  Isaac. 4 Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him.  5 Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.  6 And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.”  7 She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”

Also read:  Genesis chapters  22, 23, 24  &  25:1-11

Abraham is given the honoured and coveted title of ‘friend of God’.  See also Isaiah 41:8 & 2 Chronicles 20:7.
Our Mighty God chooses his friends with great care and this particular relationship given to Abraham reflects the depth of esteem with which the YHWH regarded him because of his faith in God Himself.  Indeed, Abraham has been regarded as a type of the life of faith for generations based on proof in Galatians 3 and Hebrews 11.  However, there is no more appropriate Bible character than Abraham, to be a type of the fatherhood of God and a type of God the Father Himself.
In our study of Genesis 22 to 24 (with some reference to chapters 21 & 25), we will see:
             Abraham as a type of God the Father
             Isaac as a type of the Lord Jesus Christ
             The ‘Un-named servantin chapter 24 as the Holy Spirit
             Sarah as a type of Israel  and
             Rebekah as the true Church, the Bride of Christ.
The birth of Abraham’s son Isaac  the result of a divine promise in Genesis 15  is clearly supernatural.  Genesis 21:1 states that YHWH visited Sarah and ‘He did for Sarah’ prefiguring in a type, events in Israel about 2,000 years later when the Holy Spirit came upon Mary (Luke 1:35).  Of course, in this case Isaac has Abraham as a biological (and elderly!) father but the divine intervention is explicit and the parallel with the conception of the Lord Jesus quite remarkable.  That God is working to a pre-ordained plan and a timetable is evidenced by verse 2 stating ‘for Sarah conceived .... at the set time of which God had spoken...’,  meaning at the ‘Right’ time.  That is, the right time according to God's will and intention.  We learn in Romans 5:6 ’For when we were still without strength, in due time (‘at the right time’, margin note NKJV) Christ died for the ungodly’ and Galatians 4:4 ‘But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born  of a woman …’.
The birth of Isaac is at a precise and fore-ordained time to suit the exact plan of YHWH.  This pictures the details of the conception and birth of the Lord Jesus, at the time of the Father’s choosing, fulfilling over 300 Biblical prophecies in the Old Testament in the finest detail, and being completely punctual according to a heavenly time-line  which ticks on until this day, anticipating the soon return of Jesus.  Not only is Isaac a ‘type’ of Christ but he is also a part of the Messianic line from which Jesus Himself will descend, being the fulfilment of the promised ‘seed of Abraham’.  Reading from Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ’.
The Lord Jesus is the final and absolute fulfilment of the promises of God to Abraham and, indeed, of all the promises of God.  In the coming Millennial Kingdom all these promises will have their literal and practical completion here on Planet Earth when the Lord Jesus reigns from Jerusalem as King of Israel and King of Kings and the sons of Abraham have the fulness of the covenant of Genesis 15 extended to them.  The first parallel between the Lord Jesus and His forebear and type is the supernatural nature and divine timing of their respective births.
The relationship between God and Israel is described as ‘marital’ by the prophets Hosea and Isaiah.  Israel is pictured as the adulterous wife of YHWH who will be restored to Him and know His absolute forgiveness and total rehabilitation.  The Lord Jesus is the Son of God, but as the Son of Man He is born from the spiritually faithful remnant of the nation of Israel.  In that respect He is a Son of Israel.  The beginnings of the Hebrew people are in the womb of Sarah.  If Abraham is the father of faith then surely Hebrews 11:11 establishes Sarah’s position as its mother ... ‘by faith Sarah also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised (emphasis mine).  Sarah’s position as Israel in typology will be ratified as our studies continue.
As an aside, it is an encouragement to see that type and forebear of Jesus is named Isaac, meaning ‘laughter’.  The Lord Jesus is the cause and source of all true joyous laughter in earth and heaven;  the hymn-writer captured that thought in the line ‘Joy of Heaven to earth come down’.  Our delight and joy are to be found in Him in whom the Father is ‘well pleased’ and who, for eternity to come, will be our Life and satisfaction.  Laughter ... the beautiful sound of peaceful, happy, contented and glorious relationships in Christ and the audible expression of ‘shalom’.
Praise the LORD!

In our next study we will begin our examination of Genesis 22 and the relationship between the sacrifice of Isaac on Mount Moriah and the Cross of the Lord Jesus at Calvary.
