Heathrow crash miracle- on a wing and a prayer

The leading headline on the Sun paper today is “Plane on wing and a prayer”, accompanied with a picture of the Boeing 777 that crashed smoothly and without loss of life in Heathrow two days ago. The pilot , Senior First Officer John Coward, said he was “only doing his job”.

I flew into London Gatwick a few hours before the crash, to get a connecting flight to London. I almost always fly into Heathrow but I snagged a cheap flight from Amsterdam (50 pounds) and so Gatwick it was. I almost missed my flight but they held the plane to let me on. If I had waited for another flight, I dont think I would have made it home.

My wife and daughter are not so lucky. They flew in from Prague this morning and were hoping to connect at Heathrow for Scotland. Uh uh! They are stuck in London for the night and will come tomorrow instead. Must be quite messy for all the passengers.

  • Prophetic Word: British Economy: Soft Landing, Hard Landing, Crash Landing?
    This was posted on an American Christian Business forum on Jan 19, 2008 but there were no responses. The banking crisis seems an order of magnitude worse in the last 6 months.
    The British Airways Boeing 777 (777 being the number of God) that crashed at Heathrow Airport is a sign from the Lord. I have pondered what this could mean since I heard of it on the news. I believe I now have the interpretation. The aircraft represents the British Economy, the 2 engines the Real Estate market and the Financial Services industry in the City of London that keep the British Economy flying, (as I recall each about 15-18% of GNP). Without warning, very soon, and for the same reason both economic sources of power will fail and there will be a crash. Britain will never “fly” again. The plane was inbound from Beijing so I believe that the imminent Chinese Stockmarket Crash will trigger the financial crisis in UK. This crisis will permanently and seriously d… Read More The British Airways Boeing 777 (777 being the number of God) that crashed at Heathrow Airport is a sign from the Lord.

    Though it was a very rough landing some of the passengers didn’t realise it was a crash. Only when the came to a stop and had to evacuate did they realise how close they had come to disaster. Crashing on the grass sliding for several hundred yards but ending just on the concrete runway speaks of Britain in relation to the European Union. The soft ground will to a degree cushion the crash and slow the aircraft down extra fast, but at the same time will rip off the undercarriage so the aircraft will never be able to take off again and it will essentially be ruined. The bailout of the British Economy by the European Union will be at a very high price to the independence and sovereignity. I believe this also means that the financial centers of Paris and Frankfurt will take over much of the treasured financial services business from the City of London on a permanent basis. For several years Britain will be in a very vulnerable position, on “soft ground”, but by the Mercy of the Lord will end up on a firm foundation, (which we know is Jesus and His plans for the Nation) and many will be saved in a huge revival avoiding the flames of Hell (the fire crews, “evangelists” made sure the aircraft didn’t burn) Britain I believe will escape falling under the control of the Antichrist and European control at the very last minute, but the economy will be wrecked.
    To quote a report on the crash:
    With senior first officer John Coward, 41, at the controls and father-of-three Captain Peter Burkill, 43, in command, the aircraft “descended rapidly and struck the ground, some 1,000ft short of the paved runway surface, just inside the airfield boundary fence”.
    The plan of the enemy is to kill (Burkill), but satan is not in control because behind the scenes it is the Lord who controls the Destiny of any Nation. A man will be put in charge of Britain who to begin with appears to be a coward and will be called a “coward”, but at the end of the day will be seen to be a hero. No one will really know what was done behind the scenes until it is all over. Finally, please note John Coward’s initials are JC.
    Please test these words and tell me if you witness they are from the Holy Spirit.

  • thanks maximillion. really appreciate it.
    for those who want to test these words, can you give a link to previous prophecies of yours and how they worked out?

  • Andrew,
    Some previous prophecies have been right and some have been wrong and many I am still waiting on, but my somewhat patchy track record is not what I wanted to put under scrutiny.(Jonah himself didn’t have much of a track record of being right before he went to Ninevah, in fact he was a pain in the arse to everyone he encountered) The key point is that if this interpretation of the Heathrow Crash as a sign from the Lord is accurate other Christians will confirm it. Then the subsequent wisdom and direction the Lord has given me to prepare the church in GB for this crisis can be considered and if approved adopted by all those who are prepared to listen.
    Some in my church might think I am dangerous, flakey or simply cannot understand how this type of imminent judgement could be from God, others have listened to the words and have acted to prepare for the crisis accordingly.
    Before I cast all the most precious pearls the Lord has given me, I thought it wiser to test the waters. If no one is interested or there are none to confirm this word this would seem to be a direction from the Lord to either tell me I am wrong, to keep my mouth shut, or that this forum is not the right environment to put forward these issues.
    Kim Clement on 18th April 2008 prophesied:
    “While I was praying again this afternoon the Lord told me to remind the people that there are two great banking systems that will fall, not to fear, no recession. He said do not listen to the powerful force of prognostication, the force of prognosis, the media that are dictating how you are supposed to feel about the future. He said let this be a sign to you: two great banking systems will fall but it is not something that will destroy this nation. He said it is the bear and it is the lion. And I said, Lord what are you talking about? I can’t get up there and tell these people that there’s going to be a break in the banking system, and He said, good riddance to bad rubbish or to junk”.
    Perhaps the Lion is Great Britain, and his words in part confirm mine from January 19th 2008.

  • best thing to do is leave a link with at least your email so that readers who feel so inclined can connect with you and see where it leads. thanks again for your comments.
    and is there a website for people get words like this and want to publish them for others to read, confirm, reject, add their own? If so, could someone leave a link to that?
