2 plus 3

Having studied maths at university, this writer is, by nature, "arithmetically inclined". Therefore, as I read the visitor's account of the 2 people struck in Georgia with the flesh-eating bacteria, the first thing that leapt up at me was that both of their ages, 24 and 36, were multiples of 12. Even more interesting is the fact that 24 is 2 times 12 and 36 is 3 times 12, meaning that they combine for a total of 60, which is 5 times 12. In other words, the first victim, age 24, points to the ratio "2 out of 5", and the second victim, age 36, points to the ratio "3 out of 5". The presence of the number "5" here confirms the spiritual connection between this flesh-eating outbreak and the 5th plague of Egypt. The division of "5" into a "set of 2" and a "set of 3" points, in turn, to a division of the 5th plague's 5 animal groups into a set comprising the first 2 animal groups and a set comprising the remaining 3 groups.

 

As we shared before, the 5 animal groups attacked by the 5th plague (Exodus 9:3) correspond to the 5 ministerial endowments of Ephesians 4:11 in the following way:

  1. Horses ==> Evangelists

  2. Asses ==> Prophets

  3. Camels ==> Apostles

  4. "Oxen" ==> Teachers

  5. Sheep ==> Pastors

 

Hence, we can say that, for some reason, the 24-year-old victim points to the 2 ministries of evangelist and prophet, and the 36-year-old victim points to the 3 ministries of apostle, teacher, and pastor. As we shared before, the first 2 ministries above are the "grace ministries". Therefore, it is no spiritual coincidence that the 24-year-old's name is Aimee Copeland. The name "Aimee" literally means "beloved" in French; thus, it has the connotation of a person who has found grace in someone's eyes  (this correlates with how she is described on her website). As may have happened with some of you, the surname "Copeland" immediately reminded this writer of the famous American preacher Kenneth Copeland. That is when the "pieces" began to fall into place.

 

The black 3

As we have shared before, evangelists who operate in the soul rather than the Spirit degrade into Amorites, and prophets in the soul degrade into Hittites. Therefore, we can say that, in a negative sense, the 24-year-old victim points to both the Amorite and Hittite spirits (given that she is related to evangelistic horses and prophetic asses). There is, however, a 3rd spirit involved.

 

According to the news accounts, Aimee Copeland contracted the flesh-eating disease as she was sliding down a zip line that broke. In other words, we can say that Aimee Copeland got infected as she tried to "fly through the air" without actually flying. As she slid down the zip line, she remained connected to the ground (through the rope and the trees or structures it was tied to on either end). Her "flight across the air" was "mechanically" propelled by gravity along a downward and unalterable straight-line trajectory. Even though the slide down the zip line felt like "flying", it did not possess the "freedom" and "randomness" of true flight. As an eagle soars through the air, for example, he allows himself to follow the air streams, drawing "random" curves in the sky as he does. In order to fly, an eagle simply "lets himself go", releasing himself from the safety of the ground or anything that is attached to it, putting himself in the "hands" of a substance (i.e.- "air") that he cannot "see". All of this contrasts with the predictable and earthbound voyage down a zip line. As we have studied before, the most "earthbound" and "non-flying" evil spirit is the Girgashite spirit. Obsessed by "methodologies of containment", the Girgashite is adamant about the importance of "predictability" and "low risk-taking", which makes him a staunch enemy of the free-flying prophetic spirit. Hence, we can conclude from all of the above that, in a negative sense, the zip line represents a Girgashite person who is trying to pretend that he can "fly" in the freedom of the prophetic, all without fully detaching himself from the safety of the ground. Therefore, we can say that the 24-year-old victim points to an Amorite-Hittite with Girgashite inclinations.

 

As we have shared before, the followers of Balaam (the antithesis of God's black-horse riders) are Amorite-Hittites gone Girgashite. Hence, we can infer that Aimee Copeland points to those who get lost in the black-horse wilderness and go Balaamite. As we have studied before, Balaamites are very "aware" of how "beloved" (i.e.- how "aimée" or "engraced") their female souls are; but, instead of using that grace to further God's eternal purposes, they become obsessed with using it for self-centred and banal ends of no eternal value. Because of this, we can say that the so-called "Prosperity Gospel" is inherently Balaamite. Therefore, it is no spiritual coincidence that Aimee's surname is "Copeland", since Kenneth Copeland is one of the most famous proponents of the "Prosperity Gospel" in America.

 

Even though Kenneth Copeland is much maligned by most who oppose the "Prosperity Gospel", it is worth emphasising that he does possess special qualities that make the "prosperity preacher" label too simplistic for him. If you listen to him with spiritual ears, you will quickly discern that there is a strong "obedience" anointing about him. He is a man who, whether misguided or not, does long to surrender his heart in obedience to God. His faith in the "prosperity gospel" stems more from a sincere belief that that is what God wants him to believe in. This belief combines with a conviction that such a gospel actually furthers God's purposes on Earth. Such an attitude contrasts with other "prosperity preachers" who have embraced the "prosperity" message more out of the concupiscence of their hearts than any sincere desire to submit to God. Besides this, Kenneth Copeland is the only one amongst the renowned preachers of today who has a significant understanding of the "God-potential" in man. He is one of the very few whose heart has been exposed to the revelation of the Awesome Impartation that God wants to pour on the human race. It is unfortunate, therefore, that such a transformative revelation has gotten so muddled by irrelevant teachings that focus on temporary blessings. It is incredibly sad that most of those who listen to Kenneth Copeland on a regular basis are so distracted by the lure of temporary blessings that they have yet to understand the revelation on the "Awesome Impartation", even when Kenneth Copeland teaches them about it in a very "non-disguised" way.

 

Fox appeal

Despite Kenneth Copeland's great qualities, however, there is a subtle flaw in him that has led to a surreptitious corruption of his calling, as well as to the massive corruption of the calling of all the major preachers he has spawned. That subtle flaw is a Canaanite tendency to tolerate unrighteousness in those who embrace any part of his message. In deep appreciation for those who embrace the things he shares, he is quick to overlook Amorite and Girgashite distortions in them, thinking that the mere fact that they have placed their faith in some of his major tenets is enough to compensate for any distortion. It is as if the presence of some measure of "faith" in the other person's heart will somehow allow any blatant areas of unrighteousness to "take care of themselves". He is so enthralled by "faith" per se that he fails to distinguish between faith in God and faith in spiritual techniques (it is as if he inadvertently has more faith in "faith" than faith in God). Those whose faith he sometimes admires are actually exercising faith in impersonal mechanisms that are appealing to them because of the results they produce, and not because of the Person they supposedly come from. As a result, these people only place their faith in the spiritual mechanisms that produce results they were already interested in prior to having an encounter with God. The mechanisms that produce results they were not already interested in are completely ignored; this is because such people make a deliberate effort to shield their hearts from any "syringe" that may inject the seeds of God's desires into them. Hence, all the "admirable", quail-attracting "faith" that these men constantly exercise is actually unimpressive in God's eyes, and it does little to further God's Kingdom on Earth. As a result, the "little" areas of unrighteousness that Kenneth Copeland refuses to judge in these people's hearts simply fester, unhindered by any "great faith" that may exist in the rest of their hearts, like little foxes that spoil their evangelistic vines. Hence it is no "coincidence" that small-scale zip lines are also known as "flying foxes" (according to wikipedia.org).

 

"Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes" (Song of Songs 2:15)

 

The word "foxes" in the verse above was translated from the Hebrew word shuw'al, which is derived from the word sho'al, which literally means "hollow of the hand". This word appears only 3 times in Scripture, the last time being in the following verse, translated as "handfuls":

 

"And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?" (Ezekiel 13:19)

 

The "barley" mentioned by God's Spirit in the verse above points to the Balaamite "barley" of Amorite, material prosperity that the black horse of the Apocalypse comes against, and the "bread" points to the Balaamite "wheat" of Hittite, emotional blessings that the black horse comes to consume. The word "pollute" was translated from the Hebrew word chalal, which can be translated as "to desecrate, to treat as common", which correlates with what Balaamites do with God's grace when they use it for Girgashite ends.

 

It is no coincidence that the Hebrew word for "fox", shuw'al, appears for the last time a mere 15 verses before the verse above, in Ezekiel 13:4:

 

"1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; 3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. 9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter" (Ezekiel 13:1-10)

 

Notice how verse 5 speaks of these foxes preventing the people of Israel preparing for battle in the day of the Lord. This is because these "wide-gate" foxes cause people to focus on their next car, their next promotion, their next personal "healing", leaving all of God's interests unattended. Instead of warring for the establishment of God's Kingdom on Earth, these "foxy" believers battle for the furthering of their own personal interests. Their minds seem to be at peace with God as they quote and claim one verse of Scripture after another. Their emotions seem to be at peace with God as they express unfeigned joy over the "gospel" they believe in, but their hearts remain at war with God, determined to actuate their own wills rather than the will of God.

 

Unfit to cross

According to news reports, Aimee Copeland was a university graduate pursuing a Master's degree. This has great spiritual significance. As we have shared before, the black-horse wilderness is equivalent to a "spiritual university" where believers come out from under the temporary coverings of man and begin a "universal" (i.e.- "comprehensive") and direct impartation from God in the "uncovered" wilderness. Those who graduate from "BHU" (Black-Horse University) must then cross the River Jordan and enter into the fullness of the green-horse stage. However, only those who truly understand the nature of the green-horse stage can make this crossing. The green-horse phase requires believers who are willing to give themselves as uncompromising sacrifice in order to topple the matriarchy of the soul and institute a Spirit-centric paradigm. The mindset of wielding grace like a sword to slay the enemy and "conquer the land" simply will not do. This is because, in the green-horse stage, the one that must be "slain" is you. Whereas the black-horse stage consists of you forging your future through the exercise of your independent will, the green-horse stage consists of you surrendering yourself to the will and whims of others. This makes the green-horse stage extremely "unpredictable", for you are at the mercy of what others may or may not do. This contrasts with the black-horse stage, where things are very "predictable" and "controllable", since they depend almost entirely on how you apply your grace in faith.

 

Due to all of the above, we can say that anyone who attempts to cross the River Jordan with a black-horse mindset is equivalent to Uzzah, who perished when he touched the Ark of the Covenant whilst it was being transported by luxurious chariots (2 Samuel 6). God will never allow His Glory to be "managed" and "steered" by man. The latter-rain Glory that is released by God's green-horse riders cannot be "managed" by man. Once released, God's Glory becomes an overwhelming stream that envelops all in all (Ezekiel 47:5). Those who may try to keep it contained within the "straight" and predictable path of a "zip line" will inevitably find the wrath of God unleashed against them. When the genuine move of God's Spirit is manifested, your natural mind will be banned from knowing where it came from or where it is headed (John 3:8). Therefore, It must be allowed to operate in total freedom, and only those with the surrendered heart of a green-horse rider can enable such overwhelming freedom. This is the reason why only God's green-horse riders are allowed to carry the Ark of the Covenant on their shoulders across the Jordan. They will not make "just enough sacrifices" to get the Ark of the Covenant to do "this" or "that" for them. Instead of manipulating the Ark to achieve personal ends, they become part of the Ark itself, allowing themselves to descend to Sheol depths that they are personally unwilling to go to. This is the reason why the River Jordan meanders in a "snaking pattern" and ends in the Dead Sea, 422 metres below sea level, as indicated on wikipedia.org.

 

Considering all of the above, it is no coincidence that zip lines are also known as "Tyrolean crossings" (as indicated on wikipedia.org). Throughout history, zip lines have often been used as makeshift "bridges" to go across rivers and reach very isolated regions. This emphasises the fact that Aimee Copeland's zip-line tragedy is a figure of what happens when a black-horse university student tries to cross the green-horse Jordan whilst remaining under the "controlled" framework of black-horse grace. You cannot cross the River Jordan using a zip line; you cannot enable God's Manifestation by manipulating spiritual "laws of gravity" to achieve a desired end. You cannot unleash God's Glory by gliding above the fray to "break on through to the other side". You cannot enter the Promised Land by using an impersonal, temporary bridge; instead of "using" a bridge, you yourself must become the bridge and allow others to "walk all over you", with no one but God controlling the limits of the ordeal you will be taken through. You cannot be a true graduate from BHU (Black-Horse University) unless you understand this. If you consider yourself a "graduate" without understanding this, you have been granted a false diploma, a pseudo-degree from a different BHU, "Balaam Hustle University".

 

Tyring believers

It is no coincidence that zip lines are also known as "Tyrolean crossings". The name "Tyrol" spiritually points to "Tyre", which, as we have studied before, points to the "Tyre treason" perpetrated on the remnant by the Girgashite Doeg's who are willing to hand the remnant over to the enemy in return for having their earthly ministries affirmed and prospered. These Edomite Doeg's are generally black-horse riders who are obedient enough to experience "unusual" spiritual growth, but who are not obedient enough to surrender themselves in uncompromising green-horse sacrifice. Because of their spiritual development and relative obedience, they gain enough access into the remnant to eventually hand them over to the enemy, just as Judas Iscariot did with Yeshua. In a sense, this "Tyre betrayal" is inevitable in the lives of God's green-horse riders, but, whenever it happens, the green-horse rider is aware, in one way or another, of the coming betrayal. Their "awareness" of the betrayal reaffirms the voluntary nature of their sacrifice. By contrast, those who straddle the fence between the "black horse" and the "green horse" are always taken completely by surprise by this betrayal, and, instead of having their death serve as a fragrant sacrifice unto God, they end up enduring a tragic death that swallows up their eternal prophetic calling, just as it happened to the 85 priests of 1 Samuel 22 who had no idea about Doeg's duplicity and who were taken totally by surprise by his betrayal.

 

"3 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty. 4 Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have perfected thy beauty." (Ezekiel 27:3-4)

[In the midst of the black-horse desert, the "Tyre" believer is imbued with abundant apostolic wisdom and prophetic anointing. As he slowly becomes seduced by the spirit of Balaam, his focus begins to shift away from the "harsh heat" of apostolic judgements and towards the acquiring of more and more "prophetic" and "evangelistic" grace. As this happens, he becomes convinced that he can be perfected in grace (i.e.- "perfect in beauty"), without realising that, to be perfect, he must be willing to surrender the intoxicating power of his grace and die in "ugliness", i.e.- devoid of "beauty" or "grace" (Isaiah 53:2). To the "Tyre believer", the Christian walk consists of "building" and "building" through the continual application of spiritual recipes of "sowing and reaping" until the ultimate level of "grace" and "prosperity" is achieved.]

 

"2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: 5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches" (Ezekiel 28:2-5)

[The "Tyre" believer grows in apostolic wisdom in the black-horse wilderness, but he uses that wisdom to accumulate Girgashite riches, convinced that that is how "kingdom expansion" is achieved. As his faith "proves "effective" and "successful" once and again, a "God complex" quickly develops. Confused by the truth that man is called to manifest God's Sovereignty on Earth, the "Tyre" believer becomes convinced that he can will anything into existence, without realising that such a privilege is only given to those who, like God, are willing to love unto death and who are willing to further the Kingdom of another, with absolutely no self-interest involved.]

 

"7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. 8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. 9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. 10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD." (Ezekiel 28:7-10)

[As we have shared before, God's green-horse riders are spiritual "foreigners" who speak a language that is completely unfamiliar to most believers, even to most who have made it into the black-horse stage. Therefore, we can say that the "strangers" that shall be brought against the Tyre believers are God's green-horse remnant, a small army of believers who have no qualms about defiling what the matriarchal Church deems "sacred" (Isaiah 43:27-28), a terrible army bent on obliteration, not "reiteration". This is the army that shall cause the Earth to open up and swallow those who have sided with Korah, including those who unwittingly did so by denying the need for a green-horse stage. This army of believers has the authority to do this because they have voluntarily descended to Sheol, which enables them to forcibly send the soul-entrenched Korah to Sheol as well.]

 

Homemade disaster

As indicated on blippitt.com, Aimee Copeland became infected with the flesh-eating bacteria after the zip-line's homemade rope snapped, which led to her leg getting cut; it is believed that the bacteria was in the river's water and entered her body through the open wound in her leg when she fell in. The fact that the rope was homemade has spiritual significance. As we have shared many times before, the Church is currently ruled by the two "female" ministries of pastor and teacher. These ministries' role is to nurture and strengthen what the "male" ministries have "brought home", meaning that they are "stay-at-home" ministries. Unfortunately, these 2 ministries try to make themselves more important than the other 3, relegating them to secondary roles. Unfortunately, the black-horse believers who never "go green" are unable and unwilling to fully understand this. Because of their tendency towards Girgashite self-centredness, their only gripe with the traditional Church is that it does not empower the individual believer due to its stale and limited doctrines. Other than a few original revelations of apostolic wisdom, prophetic power, and evangelistic conquest, these believers are willing to maintain the same fundamental structures that keep the "female" soul above the "male" Spirit. Therefore, when they dare to believe that they can cross the River Jordan, they are "OK" with using spiritual tools prepared by the "female", "stay-at-home" ministries. These tools may "do the trick" for lesser tasks, but crossing the Jordan requires nothing less than an "uncompromisingly male" heart. This is the spiritual reason why the homemade rope snapped, leading to Aimee Copeland's infection.

 

French female

As we shared above, the name "Aimee" literally means "beloved" in French. However, it is worth emphasising that the French word "aimée" is the female form of the adjective "beloved". Therefore, within the specific context of this story, it speaks of a grace built on a "female" soul foundation.

 

The fact that "Aimee" is a French name is no spiritual coincidence. As we have shared before, France is an Amorite-Girgashite nation. As we have also shared before, there is a very powerful seed of prophetic anointing buried deep beneath France's surface. This prophetic quality occasionally surfaces from beneath France's soil; when it does, however, it is normally perverted by the unrighteousness that has been established by the Amorite and Girgashite strongholds on France's soil. When this happens, that prophetic quality turns into a Hittite manifestation that only serves to strengthen the Amorites and Girgashites in France. This happened, for example, when the French rose up prophetically to topple Louis XVI in 1789, sparking the eventual end of monarchical domination in Europe. Unfortunately, this prophetic French Revolution quickly deteriorated into Robespierre's "Committee of Public Safety" and its Reign of Terror, which was Hittite in its nature, for, as we have shared before, the Hittite spirit is a communal spirit of terror.

 

Based on the above, we can safely say that France is an Amorite-Girgashite nation that can go "very Hittite" under the "right" circumstances. Notice, therefore, that France has the influence of the 3 spirits that are dominant in Balaam, the antithesis of the black horse (i.e.- the Amorite, Hittite, and Girgashite spirits). It is also worth noting that the French Revolution was triggered by food shortages (as indicated on wikipedia.org), which is consistent with the black horse's spiritual operations. The connection between the French Revolution and both the black horse and Balaam is further emphasised by the fact that, as Robespierre's Committee settled into power, they went into a Hittite campaign of terror to "secularise" France and enthrone "Reason" (in Amorite arrogance), which points to the Girgashite spirit that fights against anything "spiritual" and focuses on what is visible with the natural mind. This correlates with Balaam's efforts to use Hittite and Amorite "grace" for Girgashite ends.

 

Too black to be green

From all of the above, we can see how the name "Aimee Copeland" points (within the context of this story) to both black-horse riders and the spirit of Balaam. As we shared before, the flesh-eating disease that struck her is spiritually related to the "murrain" plague, which, in turn, is related to the manifestation of Korah, the nemesis of the green horse. Therefore, we can say that Aimee Copeland's tragedy is a figure of what happens to "Tyring believers" who stay too long in the black-horse stage and are unwilling to mature into the green-horse stage. As they do this, they slowly degrade into Balaamites, yet the "skill" with which they manipulate prophetic and evangelistic grace prevents them seeing their own degradation. When God confronts them on their stagnation, these believers refuse to accept their glaring incompleteness. Increasingly convicted by the remnant's judgements, they eventually raise their eyes from the Girgashite ground and gaze towards the Promised Land across the River Jordan. Unfortunately for them, however, they begin to view the Promised Land as the ultimate "notch on their belt", as the jewel that will crown their accomplishments and remove that lingering sense of incompleteness that just will not go away. That is when they launch themselves across the River Jordan, convinced that their zip-line techniques are more than enough to get them into the Promised Land. That is when they get struck down in a sudden moment due to their insolence and their unwillingness to learn God's higher, green-horse purposes.

 

As you may know, the French Revolution eventually evolved into the rise of Napoleon as leader of France. In fact, Napoleon's reign extended the principles of the French Revolution throughout Europe, which means that, rather than an end to the Revolution, Napoleon's reign was actually its "culmination". Therefore, it is not surprising that Napoleon's biography reveals a strong connection to the black horse, as shown, for example, by his genetic origins in the Black Sea, the relevance of Haiti during his reign, his sale of the Louisiana territory to America, his alliance with Norway, and even his establishment of the Swiss Confederation. Despite his many strong qualities, Napoleon was never able to go past his "black-horsedness", and, as he solidified himself in that black-horse grace, he found himself unable to shake off the feeling that he was missing something. Therefore, in 1811, at the height of the Napoleonic Empire, as he held controlling influence over all the European territory from Spain to Poland, he suddenly raised his gaze and beheld the land in the East, the land of Russia. This is when he said to himself, "This is what I need to crown my legacy; once I conquer Russia, I will finally be complete". That is when he launched himself on his tragic invasion of Russia in 1812.

 

As we have shared before, the transition from the red horse to the black horse involves a transition "from east to west", whereas the transition from the black horse to the green horse involves a trek "from west back to the east". Therefore, it is no coincidence that the invasion of Russia involved Napoleon's Grande Armée journeying from west to east. Thinking that his always-successful military techniques would once again win the day, Napoleon crossed the River Neman with his army on 24 June 1812, launching his offensive to subjugate Russia under his domain. However, as you may read on history.com, Napoleon's assault on Russia was plagued by one "coincidental bad break" after another, ending in total disaster and initiating the quick demise of Napoleon's mighty European empire. Once and again, the techniques that had allowed Napoleon to ravage through most of Europe became useless in Russia, especially as the Russians applied "fractal" green-horse "techniques", yielding and yielding territory instead of "standing their ground" in traditional fashion, applying scorched-earth strategies on their own crops (in "kamikaze" green-horse fashion) to deprive the French of provisions, and launching guerrilla-style attacks to torture and weary the French forces that had not died from the unusually early winter of 1812 and the severe supply shortages. Hence, Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia is an example of black-horse people trying to conquer the Promise and become complete without "understanding greenness". The same happened to Hitler 130 years later during his Nirvana-seeking "Operation Barbarossa". In a similar sense, the same also happened to the United States during the Vietnam War. In each case, a wildly successful, "stuck-in-black" Balaamite tried to "zip line" his way into the Promise, all to silence a green-horse voice declaring him incomplete; each time, the "zip-line ride" ended in devastating disaster for the insolent "river crosser". The black-horse Balaamite shall always fail every time he tries to extend his clearly limited and superficial success to a more transcendental, eternal level.

 

There is much more to say regarding this word, but we will do so in a future posting, God willing...
