Here is a wonderful word taken from Yvonne Coombs on Facebook that speaks of Eliakim, the Key of David and the need for unity in Britain – all key themes of my own ministry:
Tartan and Plaid – Eliakim to Rise Up!
Warning and promise over Scotland
Word Yvonne Coombs
Just before sleep on 9th February 2020, I heard these Words
“PLAID IS THE HERITAGE BUT PLACID IS MY HEART”.
Plaid and tartan, although the term is used interchangeably, are different. Plaid is the cloth and tartan the criss-cross pattern. A long blanket of plaid is worn over the shoulder as part of traditional Scottish attire. Plaid represents the whole of Scotland (a blanket) yet the various tartans represent the individual clans. The
tartan, can symbolise clan loyalty or even rebellion and the plaid is a symbol of a country’s identity and rich history!
The Lord spoke of being placid over this Nation. God is not a placid God unless great strife has come between Him and a Nation, that when He is kept out, He allows us do our own thing, even with negative outcomes, until in His grace and in His timing, He reveals we need to turn back toward Him. For a Nation and the church, this should have cause for concern.
He spoke ‘but placid’ and the ‘but’ must be heeded as a warning in love, just as it was spoken to many of the churches in Revelation 2 and 3. He revealed their strengths first, yet would add “BUT I have this against you” to some.
The following day, I saw a thread being cut by old style scissors, but then I saw a reconnecting of a thread with a knot and I heard “Can I not tie a knot?”
The plaid is to be cut to a new pattern, a pattern of God’s design, to reunite and bring reconciliation where disunity and division entered with England. God desires a reunification to these nations.
It shall be painful to bring healing from her past memories of the mistreatment from England, but that will bring a new freedom for Scotland. Scotland’s stubborn heart needs to let go and yield in forgiveness. This is a warning over Scotland!
“How will this cutting look Lord” ? I ask.
The cutting of the cloth is a circumcision of the heart of Scotland. This Nation will face a needed shaking yet, the Lord is gracious and shall re-tie the thread as Scotland attempts to re-tie relations with England, by a joint effort of supporting each other in this time of great change over the UK in the cutting from the EU ties. The Father’s plan is to bind us together.
The body of Christ in both nations need to repent for the plundering by Scotland and oppressive control by England and for these old grievances to be healed. We are to be intercessors for Scotland, that the tartan becomes one blanket of God’s protection and love.
Many of the Scottish and English remnant have come together to repent over these nations and this word isn’t to divide, but to encourage every Christian to rise up and pray for forgiveness.
There is great love for each other in the body of Christ yet, I believe this is a time of circumcision in Scotland to move into an era of great outpouring and favour and therefore God desires a bigger movement from the whole body to pass into this grace.
For this knot to re-tie, this also requires new Scottish leadership.
“I will raise up a leader who has unity in his heart” says the Lord.
I noted the word ‘he’ was used and believe it’s possible the mandate may be upon a male and the Lord showed me green eyes.
I do not know if this will be as a natural colour of his eyes, yet it may be symbolic of newness, freshness, new growth and healing over Scotland, because as I heard these words, I saw the beautiful rolling hills and landscapes of green.
I see a vision of jigsaw shapes as this new pattern is cut over Scotland, for God is bringing a reunion within Scotland and a hand of friendship out to England.
England, Ireland (Republic and N.Ireland), Scotland and Wales will become a unity of power, to mark out our destiny for His Glory work.
We are to be as four!
We are to be united!
We are to go back to the basics!
The Gospel of the four, Mathew, Mark, Luke and John shall be our heritage – no longer shall man’s clans, groups, nor church denominations suffocate the Holy Spirit.
Several months ago, I had a vision of a highland stag on a hill and saw this stag had shofars in place of the horns. This is a message of hope and destiny over Scotland!
(I believe this lone stag represents the authority of one who walks alone in the high places who carries the Elijah authority of a Holy one ready to blast a different sound, one of Holy purity ready to break the spirit behind worldly compromise of lowland dwellers).
If she repents and comes to desire unity to the rest of the UK, God will restore her heritage and her roots! The Lord is cutting out rebellion within her, so may we lift her in prayer Amen.
The scripture that concerns the plaid worn over the shoulders is Isaiah 22:22
I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.
When reading further into Isaiah 22:22
Eliakim is: Resurrection of God and this word is about Restoring the Christian heritage to these nations!
19 I will depose you from your office, and you will be ousted from your position. 20 “In that day I will summon my servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah. 21 I will clothe him with your robe and fasten your sash around him and hand your authority over to him. He will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem and to the people of Judah. 22 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 23 I will drive him like a peg into a firm place; he will become a seat of honour for the house of his father.
Prayer – Lord, we repent over England’s past control and pillage over Scotland and may the Scottish brethren repent on holding onto the past and yield in forgiveness, lead us into unity in our hearts and actions Lord, help us to do your will over the UK and this world in Jesus name Amen.
