Christ Loves London and Christ Loves UK are dedicated to Jesus Christ, our Lord. My name is Christine Jones, a Christian living in London, England UK. I love and I am passionate about our Lord Jesus Christ and want to please Him dearly. These websites aim to encourage the people of the United Kingdom to go back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel), Joseph, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul and go on living the Biblical principles found in the Judeo-Christian Scriptures.
‘Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.’ (Saint Augustine)
HEBREWS 11:6 ‘And without faith it is impossible to please him (God), for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he (God) exists and that he (God) rewards those who seek him.’ God rewards his followers
In Easter 1998, I converted to Christianity. I lived a quiet Christian life until one Saturday morning between 06:40 to 06:50 on 24 October 2009 whilst I was driving to work, something amazing and out of this world happened to me – I had a great encounter with what I believe to be the Lord Jesus Christ or one of his angels, and I was spiritually born at that very moment. From that day, I am totally convinced (1) the Lord Jesus Christ is Alive (2) the Holy Bible is the Word of God (3) If you read the Bible with a faithful heart and a willingness to learn from it, it speaks to you personally (4) If you seek the Lord with a healthy heart, you’ll find Him.
The weeks leading to the event
When I became a Christian, I read the Bible cover to cover – from Genesis to Revelation, but since 2009 I started reading it again not always paying too much attention to what I was reading and sometimes I would fall asleep shortly after picking the Bible up. However when I came to the books of Samuel I suddenly developed a big interest and became very fascinated with what I was reading. I discovered something about David that is outstanding and fascinating – he loves God, he had great faith in God, feared God, and totally depended on God, he also loved his neighbour. . I enjoyed reading so much about this God fearing man David that I was completely hooked on the Bible during that time.
The Big Day
On the 24 October 2009 a Saturday morning, I woke up as usual at 05:30, went for a run on the treadmill – ran for half an hour and then had a bowl of porridge, an apple and a glass of orange juice whilst reading the Bible, I was on 2 Samuel. I enjoyed so much what I was reading I found it very hard to put the Bible down, but I had to go to work.
I got ready and got into my car. I set off at 6:40am. I drove for less than a minute. As I reached the top of my road, I turned right and started driving up the hill – what happed next I do not know. I found myself floating in heaven.
I was somewhere else out of this world floating on white clouds and all that remained of my car was a steering wheel, seat and peddles made of white clouds. My hands were holding on to the cloud steering wheel and my feet were resting on cloud peddles and I was sitting on a cloud seat. Below me was nothing, on either side of the car there was nothing – just nothing – it was like floating in space.
However, above my head, was a young man, aged between twenty five to thirty five years floating with his hands spread outwards. He was surrounded with white clouds, a mild breeze and brightness and above him the sky was filled with stars that looked like millions of Christmas lights. His eyes, nose, cheeks and mouth were visible through the white clouds. His face was serious when his lips moved but I did not hear what he was saying. That moment was the most joyous, peaceful, and happiest beyond description that I have ever felt. The feeling was just incredible. I completely felt at home. I was not afraid at all.
We stayed in that heaven like space for a while and then I found us floating over my road. By that time, his whole upper body, the chest, arms and head were clearly visible. He was absolutely breath-taking to look at. He was so unique and awesome that he cannot be compared to any man on earth he was overwhelming and completely out of this world. The area was transformed into a picturesque village full with autumn like colours. While we were still floating over my road, I saw a ray of light highlighting an area about a mile from my road. That place too had been transformed into a picturesque village full with autumn like colours.
A voice told me, when I want to move house, to move there. At that time, I used to dream of one day returning to live in Chelsea. I used to live there in the 80s. The man was looking at me with such a great love and care as a loving father would do spending time comforting and reassuring his daughter before he says goodbye.
I was spiritually born again. At that moment I was perfect. Over the next week or so, I felt sparkling clean inside and out – clean of all sins! However, the perfection gradually faded away as the days and weeks went by. Today, I’m still a little bit different to my old self but I’m nowhere near perfect.
The young man did not tell me his name. So I assumed it was the Lord Jesus Christ. But he could also be one of His angels – ‘The Angels of the Lord’.
I have no idea how I came back to Earth but I am sure time did stand still for me during the vision because I got to work in the time I normally get there. The incident slowly dawned on me. Soon after his appearance new ideas that were not there before and names of people I have never met came flooding into my head. The instructions were that the Lord Jesus Christ (the Judeo-Christian Scriptures) is to be the centre of the United Kingdom, and to pray for Britain and the world. And these people are to play a part in it happening.
When I arrived at work, I was still extremely happy and exited. One of my colleagues said to me, ‘my God, she is filled with the Holy Spirit,’ everyone laughed. In fact, I felt extremely happy and content over the next week or so.
I was advised to pray before carrying out any instruction and not to rush things but most of the time I rush things.
At first I set up a blog and called it Christ Love London. But the Lord has a different idea, He wanted websites: I set up Christ Loves London 2009 and January 2010 I set up Christ Loves UK.
Another thing I noticed as well is that Satan became more real and sometimes he erased what I have written about him. He does not want me using his name especially Satan or the Devil at all. It will take a while for him to realise I’m using it but when he finds out, he just deletes it. For example:
One day I was working on some stuff to go on the Christ Websites. I typed a page talking about Satan and saved it before moving onto the next topics. Suddenly without warning something which looked like a bath towel with black, red and purple colour came down and covered the screen. It was like a curtain suddenly pulled down. I jumped off my chair and walked backward resting on the wall behind but with my eyes still fixed on the screen. It lasted about thirty seconds or less – when the curtain went up and disappeared, his name had been deleted out of the paragraph – the rest of the paragraph was all there.
I have learnt now before writing anything, and about him especially, if I’ve mention his name, first, I apply Holy Water, put my Rosary around my neck and pray. No more attacks.
In the new me, I have two new roles: (a) I am a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ and (b) I am an encourager. As a witness, I tell what I experience, see & hear – just like someone on a Witness Box. And in my encouraging duties, I encourage the people to turn away from sin and to go back to God.
The Bible warns us to flee from two kinds of sins: idolatry and immorality
1 Corinthians 10:14 … Flee idolatry…
Idolatry is the way people insult God (Dr David Pawson)
Idolatry is the way people insult the Lord God by worshiping anything other than the Lord God Himself. So if you’re a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, and you stand shoulder to shoulder with non-Christian religions or go to non-Christian worship places or eat foods that have been offered to other gods, you’re committing idolatry – in other words, you’re insulting the True Most High God, the God of the Bible. (Dr David Pawson)
The Holy God of Israel says – ‘I am God, there is no other; I am God, there is none like me. At the beginning I foretell the outcome, in advance, things not yet done. I say that my plan shall stand I will accomplish my every purpose.’
1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality
Immorality is the way people indulge themselves. (Dr David Pawson)
The Bible says the unity with Christ is incompatible with all sins (Romans 6:6) but particularly with unruly sexual sins – because sexual union has a spiritual component. See sexual sins on 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; & 10:8; 2 Corinthians 13:5; Romans 1:26-27, Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13 and 1 Timothy 1:10 (the English Standard Version Study Bible)
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 … do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in our body.
The fabricators and governors of the world of idolatry and immorality – is Satan and his team. The devil’s team consist of him (Satan), the False Prophet, the Antichrist and gangs of demons (fallen angels) – together they are the evil angels. (Dr David Jeremiah)
The Bible also talks aboutinjustice.
Injustice is the way people injure each other. (Dr David Pawson)
Our brothers and sisters (the Lord Jesus Christ identified Himself with the Israelites), the Israelites received the longest and the worse injustice on Earth – Israel is victimised on a daily basis continuously throughout history – Israel is constantly being attacked, ridiculed and mocked from all directions and her friends are intimidated. Well, the Bible gives a warning loud and clear to anyone or any nation who hate Israel:
God says to Israel: … Those who oppose you I will oppose and your sons I will save (Isaiah 49:23)
… All mankind shall know that I, the Lord, Am your saviour, your redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Isaiah 49:26)
A nation/an individual that does not serve you shall perish and be utterly destroyed. (Isaiah 60:12)
Jeremiah 31:3 Israel, I have loved you with everlasting love, therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
The Lord God has a plan for Israel no-one to stand on His way. (The Bible)
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 and Leviticus chapter 26 outline the rewards for obedience and punishment for disobedience of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures.
Be kind and supportive to Israel.
The Bible says if you participate with demons (1Corinthians 8:9 & 10:21) you cannot then expect to receive eternal life on the last day. We are advised to take note that demons delight in the worship of any ‘god’ but the One True God (1 Corinthians 10:19-20) False religions are not just the result of human imagination and human energy but have demonic power behind them – Not everything that seems ‘supernatural’ is from God. (The English Standard Version Study Bible)
Reading the Bible with a faithful heart and a willingness to learn from it repels Satan. (Mike Aquilina)
Matthew 24:4-8 … ‘Be on your guard, and do not let anyone deceive you…’
Luke 21:34 ‘Be on your guard…’
‘Don’t dabble in the occult. Don’t go to fortune-tellers. Don’t play with Ouija boards. Fight your battles far from the city walls. Avoid occasions of sin.’ (Mike Aquilina)
Satan recoils at the name of Jesus. Holy water, crucifixes and other Christian overt signs of faith repel him. ‘Satan recoils from anything holy.’ Saint Athanasius said, that “by the sign of the cross … all magic is stayed, all sorcery confounded, all the idols are abandoned.”
‘You are a child of God – you commune with the Almighty, and His angels are at your disposal. The saints are around you like a great cloud of witness-Hebrews 12:1. You don’t need the frisson of demonic tricks. It’s not worth the consequences.’
“Kindness is in our power even when fondness is not.” The Catholic Diary 2010
The Holy Bible says ‘You will be doing the right thing if you obey the law of the Kingdom, which is found in the Scriptures, “Love your neighbour as you love yourself.” But if you treat people according to their outward appearance, you are guilty of sin. James 2:8-9.
‘Back of every creation, supporting it like an arch is faith. Enthusiasm is nothing: it come and goes. But if one believes, then miracles occur.’ (Henry Miller)
The Great Commandment: Mark 12:30-31 – And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. You shall love your neighbour as yourself – also see Deut.6:5 & Lev. 19:18, 34 have faith Mark 5:34, Matthew 17:20, John 2:19.
‘Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion – inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.’ Closing prayer of the Chaplet of Mercy) Amen
Face to face with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Saturday morning 24 October 2009 is an unforgettable day for me. It was a day I came face to face with the Lord Jesus Christ (or one of His angels) and He took me to the Second Heaven.
According to the Bible, there are three Heavens in total. Heaven means height in Hebrew and is mentioned over five hundred times in the Bible. (Dr David Jeremiah)
2 Corinthians 12:2-3 Paul’s vision and revelations of the Lord. ‘I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the Third Heaven-whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows. And I know that this man was caught up into paradise-whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows.’
In 2 Corinthians 12:2-3, I know a man …this man. Paul’s hesitancy to boast of his visions is reflected in his use of the third person (as if it had happened to someone else). The Third Heaven (i.e. the highest; see 1 Kings 8:27; 2Chron. 2:6; Neh. 9:6; Ps. 148:4) This phrase does not imply belief in a simplistic “three-story universe” but reflects a commonsense distinction between (A) the atmosphere where birds can be seen to fly, (B) the higher area where the sun, moon, and stars can be seen, and (C) the unseen realm where God dwells. This third area is equated with ‘paradise’ (Gk. Paradeisos, a Persian loan-word used in the Septuagint to refer to the Garden of Eden, see Gen. 2:8-10; 13:10) but in the NT to refer to a place of blessedness where God dwells (Luke 23:43; Rev. 2:7). Both terms would be recognized by Jewish readers as references to the realm of God’s direct presence. (The Bible)
The First Heaven
Isaiah 55:9-10 ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thought than your thought. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater…’
This heaven (Isaiah 55:9-10) refers to the blanket of air surrounding our Earth in which the birds and clouds move in. It is the one you see when you look up at night in the sky. (Dr David Jeremiah)
Genesis 1:20 ‘And God said, ‘Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens’. (Dr David Jeremiah)
The Second Heaven
Genesis 1:14-17 And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth. And it was so. And God made the two great lights – the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night – and the stars. And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth…’
This Heaven refers to the space that contains the Sun, the Moon, the stars and all the Galaxy. (Dr David Jeremiah)
The Third Heaven
Psalm 11:4 ‘The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.’
Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.’
This refers to the Heaven where God lives known as the Paradise Heaven. The Third Heaven is where God resides and it is where we go when we died. Hence, the prayer, ‘Our Father Who Art in Heaven…’
The Third Heaven is the place where Jesus’ Father House is. It is a Kingdom and a country. It is a prepared place for prepared people. (see John 14:1-3) (Dr David Jeremiah)
Ephesians 4:10 ‘He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.’
If Heaven is up, which way up?
Isaiah 14:13 ‘You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north.”’
Heaven is the furthest side of North. Anywhere you are on Earth, North is up. (Dr David Jeremiah)
I strongly believed it was the Lord Jesus Christ I met because whilst we were together, I felt love and peace beyond belief that was completely out of this world. I was born again that very day. I was cleaned inside out. I was rid of all sins and felt so light that I could fly. Sadly the beautiful feelings and lightness faded away as time went by. Today, I am becoming heavier and heavier (Sin is heavy and it is a burden).
One day a fellow Christian called and told me she had seen the film called ‘Exorcist’ on Channel 5 and she recommended that I must see it. So I went HMV and bought the whole series as well as the whole series of Fawlty Towers at the same time. When I opened the box that was supposed to contain the Exorcist, it was empty. Even though the box was completely sealed, there wasno DVDs inside. The box for Fawlty Towers was fine. It had all the DVDs. I believe God does not want me to watch it so I gave up wanting to watch it. (2011)
Satan erased his names
He does not want me using his name, especially Satan or the Devil. It will take a while for him to realise I’m using it, but when he finds out he deletes it. For example:
One day I was working on some writing to go onto the Christ Loves Websites. I typed a page talking about Satan and saved it before moving onto the next topic. Suddenly without warning something which looked like a bath towel came down and covered the screen. It was like a curtain suddenly pulled down. I jumped off my chair and walked backward resting on the wall behind but with my eyes still fixed on the screen. It lasted about thirty seconds or less – when the curtain went up and disappeared, his name had been deleted out of the paragraph – the rest of the paragraph was all there.
Once again I was typing an article in my office when something shaped like man but purely made of lights like the sun walked in and stood at the door looking at what I was writing. I knew it was Satan but I was not afraid as I believed the Lord Jesus Christ would protect me. I didn’t turn to look at him; I just carried on typing. He stood around for about thirty seconds and left. During him standing there, the atmosphere felt uncomfortable.
