Prophetic words are simply God speaking to us. Over the years, prophecy has played a vital role in shaping the culture and directing the path of what was once “NKCC” and is now Eastgate.
Recorded here are some of those prophecies.

Troop Carriers Prophecy
Troop Carriers Prophecy, July 2020
Brought first at the Eastgate Sunday service, 26th July, by David Webster. This was the first live service back in the auditorium at Eastgate following the Covid 19 lockdown.
“I saw a picture of a modern military troop carrier filled with soldiers being taken to the front line. The soldiers are trained and equipped and ready for battle. During their journey they have been enclosed in the carrier, enjoying the camaraderie of the other soldiers, but cut off from the outside world. They know they are on a mission, a great exploit, a massive incursion into the enemies’ territory, but temporarily they are not aware of where they are and exactly where they are going. They have to trust another to know the journey, keep them secure, and take them safely to the next stage. They are hopeful and expectant but not without anxiety and nervous tension. They are mixed in age and experience of battle, the older and more mature a reassuring presence among the younger and less experienced.
Then the vehicle finally arrives and the troops file out at their destination. They look around taking in their new vista. As they do, many other troop carriers arrive, and they realise that they have been part of a large convey of military might. This is the frontline of the battle.
As they all gather there is a period of relaxing, even joking around. There is an air of confidence and expectation as they take in the new landscape and what begins to look like a new military deployment.
Jesus is there, their general, clothed in splendour and glorious light, Lord of all the earth, an awesome commander. He begins to give out new orders and instructions. For some his instructions are as originally planned, though no less exciting and demanding. For others there is a change from what they had expected, a different direction to go in. I saw one particular group being drawn together to go off immediately and ambush the enemy.”
There was a real sense that we (the church) were the troops and that the period in the troop carriers was our time in lockdown, enclosed, restricted, and our view limited. We were still going in the right direction but unsure of the journeys details, that was in someone else’s hands, who we needed to trust.
Now perhaps, we are in the situation where we are getting out of the troop carriers and looking around. This is a good time to be resting and abiding in Christ and listening to his voice (which has of course been our teaching theme at the moment). We need to be listening carefully for his next instructions and the leading of the Holy Spirit, both individually and corporately.
There was a general air of expectation and readiness for the battle ahead, not least of all because of the presence of Jesus in his power, majesty and awesome splendour.
Dinosaur Word, June 2020
In a vision, God showed me the Great Dinosaur at the Natural History Museum. I saw a recreation of a 3D model of how it appeared in real life. Then, as the different layers faded away, I saw the skeleton. As I looked at the bare bones, I saw clusters of life burgeoning on the bones, gradually joining to each other. They kept growing and connecting. And the Dinosaur began to look more life-like than the initial 3D recreation.
I’ve had conversations with other prophets who shared similar visions. This is my interpretation of what God showed me.
We’re in a season where it’s essential that we ‘go back to basics’. God is calling us back to His commandments: We are to love Him first, return to the roots of intimacy with Him and love our neighbours as ourselves.
In terms of church life, it is also time to simplify. We have to let go of somethings that were right at the time we adopted them, but they no longer have relevance. The breath of God is not on them in this season. It is time to simplify church, to move back from doing church to being church. To be family.
Connected at the core (the bones) while simultaneously allowing freedom and life to flow through the points where the clusters link. Each different in their appearance and flavour, and yet carrying the same DNA which reveals the beauty and the life of the whole.
Practically speaking, it is likely that the corporate expressions of church will not look like they used to for months, even years. Now is the time to explore the idea of church happening in homes. For example, how can we resource connect groups to be church? It is time to become a more organic expression of the church, more local. The same DNA, with different flavours.
The conversation about race is perfectly timed as it drives us back to the basics of life and faith, with the possibility of creating a framework in which all can flourish in equality.
‘Central’ still has a function, but it needs to change to equipping. In this next phase, its purpose will be to provide resources that empower each family member who gathers in a cluster, giving them opportunity to grow and thrive and do the work of the Kingdom.
It is time for the church to look completely different. To feel different and to return to growth that produces authenticity – as we reflect the Glory of God in different shapes and sizes. It’s time to reimagine the church.
Lion of Judah Prophecy
Lion of Judah Prophecy, May 2020
The Lion of Judah is roaring. The Lord of armies is calling his people to get ready for the season ahead. As the roar echoes from mountains to valleys, the supernatural power of God awakes and strengthens hearts. His love is resurrecting buried promises. Are you ready?
This is a time of preparation for an expansion. This is a season of shaking, of equipping, of rest. Families and marriages are being restored. This is a time of caring, one of mourning and grief. And in this season, the strength of God is rooting us deeper in him. He is making us ready.
People of God, arise and unite. Come and see, the enemy is defeated. Stand in your promises. Hear the roar. It’s time to get ready.
Worship to a new level
God is moving on the people of this house unlike never before. It will be an unprecedented move of God.
The worship is going to a whole new level. New sounds are being prepared from heaven’s throne room just for NKCC.
Some will have angelic visitations and songs will be given directly from heaven.
God says to look forward to the coming day with excitement because He is going to shake things up with His glory. New levels of anointing. More growth, growth and growth.
The music of NKCC will go global. New worship songs will be written and God is honouring the hearts of those seeking Him.
The Spiritual Water Table Has Risen
The Spiritual water table is rising rapidly for NKCC (now Eastgate). Springs and streams have, are and will continue to break the ground’s surface through our prayers, meetings, School of Supernatural Life, conferences, homegroups etc.
But the picture I have is that the spiritual water table is still rising rapidly and the ground can no longer hold it. I believe as we press in, worship and call on God in these next few days and weeks God has much more.
I see the ground erupting everywhere and the land is then literally flooded with the living water God has and is going to pour out.
God our Father, in Jesus Christ, wants our expectancy and faith to rise and be ready for His outpouring.
The River – His outpouring of the river of the living water of life.
Water = H2O – hydrogen and oxygen
Hydrogen is the most fundamental element in the universe and is also the most abundant.
Oxygen is necessary to sustain life. We must breathe oxygen to live.
A water molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms. The combination of the most fundamental and abundant element with the one element we must have for life and breath forms water.
Water cleanses us
We need water to sustain us and quench our thirst
All plants, including fruit bearing trees and vines for grapes must be watered to live and bear fruit
We can play, swim and enjoy water in pools, lakes, the sea and rivers
The bible continually mentions water:
John 7: 38 “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
Rev 7:17 For the Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’
Our building is aptly located at Springhead – The head of a spring of living water for the Gravesham and North Kent area. Springs flow into rivers – living water into the river of life:
Revelation 22: 1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Let our expectancy and faith rise and be ready for His outpouring into and from NKCC (Eastgate) and the Springhead area.
Let us declare and decree His outpouring of the river of the living water of life.
Lighthouse Prophecy 23/4/12
4 years ago, when I was looking to move down South, the Father showed me a picture of me joining the family firm at a lighthouse. I simply thought that this was a confirmation that I was to go to work at my practice which is called the Lighthouse.
On Sunday morning, I saw a large concrete foundation had been laid, I saw large holes being drilled into it and steel girders being erected. I felt that the Father is in the process of building here. I know there is a building project on the way, but this was in the sense of what the church was going to be. As I watched I saw a stream of people coming to join the building process, and I knew the Father is going to gather in more of His people, to come and help NKCC, in the process He has started. This is the first stage.
I asked the Father what we were building and why it was so substantial and He said that it was going to be a lighthouse and it needed to be strong to weather the storms. That the light of His presence would shine out over the whole country and into the continent. I saw that this presence was sent out by a mirror made of hundreds of facets. That each one of us, was a facet in the mirror and our job was to stay in His presence so we then shone it out to the surrounding country.
The lighthouse had many holes dug, in a strict pattern. I felt the Father say that it would need many rooms to contain all who were coming and that the process of building would not be hap-hazard, but that He had a clear design and plan on how we were to grow and what we were to do. I felt that we would need to set up systems to deal with the lost and the sick. Initially there wouldn’t be much to do, there would not be a great take-up, but not to worry because we were in a stage where what we were doing was a drill, a time of preparation. We had to keep practicing, to keep with the drills.
Finally I saw that the Lighthouse was fully built. I saw what looked to be like the scene in Pearl Harbour after the attack on the harbour started; hundreds, possibly thousands would start coming, the lost, the sick and the lonely. An almost overwhelming number, however because we were ready and had our systems in place, we wouldn’t be overwhelmed, we would have the capacity to deal with them and know what to do.
I felt the Father’s encouragement for us all to stay in His presence, to become Bright Shining ones, and to be prepared for what is to come.
Lighthouse Prophecy 15/7/12
I saw that the lighthouse is staffed by teams who ran it, they fly in and fly out; that when away from the lighthouse they were still called lighthouse keepers – they still wore the uniform, they don’t lose their identity and that they keep coming back. Whilst away from the lighthouse, others cared for the light, whilst away… that they carry the light with them and set fire to kindling elsewhere; I saw lighthouses appearing all over the UK.
Lighthouse Prophecy 17/8/12
I was exercising and my mind went back to the Lighthouse prophesy. As soon as I saw it, I once again saw the internal design of the building. It needed strong internal walls because a flood of the Holy Spirit was gushing through it. It washed over people kneeling to pray, and flowed round the building.
Then I felt the Father say, normally a lighthouse is built so that water doesn’t get in (I saw that famous picture of the French Lighthouse being swamped.) But in this case the water – the Spirit – flows from the lighthouse. I saw someone, and I felt his boldness walk up to double doors, that looked like a fire escape and he slammed the release bars, to release the water out. At the same time I saw in my mind a sign saying Fire Exit and I knew again that it was the fire of the Holy Spirit. That we are meant to send out streams of living water.
I knew that the crowd who were coming, (Pearl Habour scene) were coming because they were thirsty. I had the passage: Come all you who are thirsty, come and drink.
