Lorenzini sensibility

As you may know, animals are known for their keen sense of smell and sight. Sharks, however, possess a rather unusual set of organs that do more than smell or see. These organs, which very few animals possess, are known as the "ampullae of Lorenzini", and they act as electroreceptors that allow sharks to detect the electromagnetic fields emitted by other animals, as well as allowing them to perceive the electric fields produced by oceanic currents. As indicated on wikipedia.org, of all the animals who possess ampullae of Lorenzini, sharks are the ones with the greatest sensibility to electric fields, being able to sense as little as 5 nano-volts (i.e.- 5 billionths of a volt) for every centimetre of ampulla. The glycoprotein-based substance that the ampullae are made of allows them to transduce temperature changes into electrical currents, thus enabling the shark to detect temperature gradients in the water. Therefore, we can safely say that the shark's ampullae of Lorenzini are an example of a rather innovative sensory mechanism that allows sharks to have a deep perception of the atmosphere around them. This correlates with the remnant as they advance through the latter stages of their spiritual walk. Green-horse remnant believers become keenly perceptive of the spiritual atmosphere around them. As sacrificial watchmen, they can sense subtle changes in the air; they can sense when the kairos for the vision's fulfilment has come, and they can sense when the vision is slipping away. They can sense the oncoming of transcendental spiritual events. They can sense when the enemy is getting stronger and when the enemy is getting weaker. They can sense when those around them are close to falling, and they can sense what is holding others back from the fulfilment of their calling. This is why Jesus at green-horse Gethsemane could sense what was in the air and what was about to happen, even when those around Him failed to discern the transcendence of oncoming events. This is why green-horse Yeshua could sense that Simon Peter was about to crumble under the intimidating influence of the Amorite spirit despite of all of his bravado and loyalty in the natural. This is why He could sense that it was time for Judas Iscariot to take the bait and enable satan's intrusion into His inner circle, and He could sense that satan's door into Iscariot's life was prompted by the fact that Judas Iscariot was willing to be "dipped" into the anointing but was against being fully immersed in it. Judas was willing to die enough to enjoy the blessings of the anointing, but not enough to enable God's purposes on Earth. Judas Iscariot was OK with the death of baptism, as long as it did not involve a full immersion, i.e.- a full surrender unto God. This is why Jesus dipped a piece of bread and gave it to Judas just before he went off to hand Jesus over to the enemy.

 

"26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27 And after the sop satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly." (John 13:26-27)

 

The word "dipped" in verse 26 was translated from the Greek word bapto, which is different from the Greek word baptizo. As you may read at blueletterbible.org, a clear example of the fundamental difference between these 2 similar Greek words is a recipe for making pickles that was written by the Greek poet Nicander around 200 B.C. The recipe says that the raw pickle must first be "dipped" (bapto) into boiling water and then "baptised" (baptizo) in a vinegar solution. As can be seen, both words involve the immersion of the vegetable in a solution. However, the first word (bapto) is a temporary, in-and-out immersion; the second word (baptizo) produces a permanent change. Whereas bapto points to baptism in water, baptizo points to baptism in fire (John 3:3-5). Therefore, the dipped morsel that Yeshua gave to Judas was His way of signifying that Judas dipped himself into "Christianity" but was never interested in a permanent surrender. Judas was OK with an external cleansing in water, but was not interested in a burning transformation that would penetrate into his innermost being (like the pickle in vinegar). As a close study of Matthew 26:1-16 reveals, Judas Iscariot applied this approach not only to himself but to the world around him. Just like Judas Iscariot, the matriarchal Church is only interested in an external cleansing of the world, but is hostile towards the judgement-fire process required to forge a lasting transformation.

 

"20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 3:20-21)

[Notice how the Holy Spirit equates Noah's flood with a water baptism of the world. Notice also how the Holy Spirit compares the baptism of water to a cleansing of the flesh. A literal baptism in water "puts away" the literal "filth of the flesh", and a spiritual baptism in water puts away the spiritual filth of the "flesh" to produce a "good conscience toward God", i.e.- a conscience that can stand before God without the shame of sin's stain on its external spiritual clothing (Zechariah 3:1-7).]

 

"6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen." (2 Peter 3:6-18)

[Notice how verse 13 declares that those in the Spirit are in the expectation of a new heavens and a new earth "wherein dwelleth righteousness". This contrasts with the believers in the matriarchal Church, who are longing for a new heavens and a new earth "wherein dwelleth happiness". Because the matriarchal believers' expectations are different from God's, they have a very hard time understanding and discerning God's plans and purposes. This is the reason why Peter then proceeds to speak of how so many are prone to not understanding Paul's wisdom along with Scripture in general, often distorting it for their own perdition (v15-16). Righteousness is forged through judgements, and judgements are released as wisdom is increased. This is why the deep wisdom of God is so reviled by matriarchal believers and why they are not at all interested in the transcendental transformation of the world wrought by God's fire baptism. Matriarchal believers do not want the God of Consuming Fire; they want the God of many goodies. Their "God" is satan claus, not the God of Israel.]

 

Those operating in the green-horse anointing develop the innovative sensory mechanism that enables them to discern very relevant movements in the spirit realm that most others are completely oblivious to. Since they are longing for the wrought-by-fire transformation of the world, their Lorenzini ampullae enable them to detect those with the spirit of Judas who are only interested in being "bapto-ed" but not "baptizo-ed", and they can sense when that treacherous spirit is taking over the atmosphere, just as the Lord did at Gethsemane. Green-horse believers understand that they must go through this betrayal once, but they realise that there is a deep problem when they are forced to go through it twice, for those who crucify the Son of God twice can only expect harsh judgement from God, along with the casting off of their calling (Hebrews 6:4-8).

 

The Cosimo enemy

The ampullae of Lorenzini were named after Stefano Lorenzini, who described them for the first time in 1678. Interestingly enough, there is very little about his life available on the Internet. The only significant titbit of information that I found was in a very brief article about him in the Italian version of Wikipedia. According to that article, Stefano Lorenzini fell into disgrace with the grand duke Cosimo III de' Medici, who locked him up along with his brother Lorenzo Lorenzini, a famous mathematician. As described on wikipedia.org, Cosimo III de' Medici was a rather legalistic and obstructively inept monarch, a man clearly imbued with the anti-David spirit of Saul, a repulsive fat man who made it his calling to actively persecute Jews. During his long reign of proactive mediocrity, he imposed tariffs, bureaucracy, and taxes that pushed Tuscany into stagnation and poverty. He also imposed foolish and unnecessary restrictions on education, banning any student, for example, from attending college outside of Tuscany and banning any professor in "his" university at Pisa from teaching "the philosophy of Democritus, or of atoms, or any save that of Aristotle". His educational measures were so counterproductive that a contemporary wrote that not a single man in Florence could read or write Greek, which contrasted with the days of the Republic of Florence, when Florence was a city-state independent from the rest of Tuscany. This only goes to show how knowledge has always been the worst enemy of the staunchly mediocre, for it constantly accuses them of being stagnant and incompetent. By the time Cosimo III died, this pathetic ruler had left Tuscany one of the poorest nations in Europe and with its treasury empty, which illustrates how the spirit of Saul is tied to long-term poverty and backwardness. Wherever you find chronic poverty, you can rest assured that the spirit of Saul is lurking somewhere in the background.

 

As all of the above clearly shows, this man was a man dead set against the spirit of innovative "David" wisdom. Therefore, it is no spiritual coincidence that such a man would imprison Stefano Lorenzini, a man so spiritually connected to the spirit of David wisdom.

 

Stefano

The fact that the name "Stefano" is the Italian version of the name "Stephen" is no spiritual coincidence either. As you may know, Stephen is also the name of a man spoken of in the book of Acts who was full of "irrefutable wisdom". The fact that his wisdom was irrefutable points to the fact that he was endowed with the David spirit of innovative wisdom, for it requires fresh and creative insights into existing information to produce arguments that even the "wisest" amongst "Saul's troops" cannot overcome.

 

"8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. 9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen. 10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake." (Acts 6:8-10)

 

As we have studied before, Stephen was eventually murdered and "temporarily silenced" by his enemies because he dared to speak word of harsh judgement against them. As a man endowed with the David spirit of innovative wisdom, he was an "exterminator" by nature, a man who was unwilling to "coexist" with the unrighteous status quo. Through his words and deeds, he was intent on pushing through and breaking down the unrighteous paradigm walls that were erected all around him, using the sledgehammer of God's fractal wisdom and judgements. Contrary to the matriarchal understanding of what "wisdom" is, a strong impartation of God's wisdom leads to conflict and to the release of judgements against all the folly around it that has been simplistically tolerated for so many centuries. God's wisdom does not turn you into a "peace-and-love" hippie guru who treasures "conflict avoidance" as the epitome of "wise behaviour". This does not mean, however, that God's wisdom turns you into an indiscriminate bulldozer that blindly razes everything around it. As you grow in God's wisdom, your understanding becomes more and more intricate. You begin to discern subtle defects and qualities that others do not detect. You begin to deeply abhor the defects that you discern and to love and value the good qualities that you discover. You therefore begin to issue more nuanced judgements that are calibrated by the full spectrum of reality, and, as long as you do not lose your "first love", you become an agent for both the cleansing of the atmosphere around you and the enabling of all the hidden potential that surrounds you.

 

As you may know, Stephen's death was instrumental in the eventual conversion of Saul into Paul (Acts 7, 9). Therefore, it is no coincidence that Paul received the impartation of apostolic wisdom that he did. As Saul was standing with the mantles of Stephen's murderers at his feet (Acts 7:58), he was unwittingly guarding one extra mantle: the mantle of Stephen's anointing, the mantle of the David spirit of innovative wisdom. Even though he did not pick up that mantle immediately, it was suddenly heaped upon him on the road to Damascus, and he was turned from a man with the anti-innovative spirit of Saul into a man imbued with the David anointing of innovative wisdom. Saul had collaborated with the men who murdered green-horse Stephen and sent him to 5th-seal hibernation. Therefore, the Lord sent Saul through 3 days of "Sheol hibernation" in the darkness of blindness (Acts 9:9), after which a wary Ananias came to complete the mantle impartation by laying hands of him (Acts 9:13-18), just as a Samuel wary of Saul came to David to anoint him (1 Samuel 16:2-13).

 

Stephen's spiritual presence in the midst of this prophetic word is a sad prophetic omen of what is currently taking place in America's (and the world's) spiritual atmosphere. Even though a Stephen-type sacrificial death was an inevitable part of God's restoration process, the American Church has clung so staunchly to its tradition-centric ministerial spirit of Saul that it is thrusting the David-spirit remnant into a deeper and wider pit of Stephen-type death, thereby sealing the latter-rain outbreak shut for yet another generation.

 

The maths connection

The fact that Stefano Lorenzini's brother, a famous mathematician at the time, was imprisoned along with Stefano is no coincidence either. As the famous mathematician and scientist Carl Friedrich Gauss once said, mathematics is the "queen of the sciences". This is due to the fact that mathematics provides the language and framework for all the other sciences. All the major innovative advances in science have required an initial breakthrough in pure mathematics in order to formulate and advance them. Einstein, for example, required the breakthrough of Riemannian geometry to formulate his general theory of relativity, and quantum physicists required Galois Theory to advance their science. Thus, it is safe to say that there is a strong connection between mathematics and the spirit of innovative David wisdom.

 

{If you want to read a little more on the relevance of mathematics in innovative thinking, we recommend a very informative paper posted on dpmms.cam.ac.uk. If you are interested in the history of mathematics, we also recommend an interesting article posted on fabpedigree.com.}

 

Different people may give different answers to the question of who the "greatest mathematician of all time" is, but this writer would dare to argue that the greatest mathematician of all time is Carl Friedrich Gauss, who is known in maths circles as the "prince of mathematicians". The spirit of abstract innovation is clear throughout Gauss's work, a work that is impressive not only because of its revolutionary influence on abstract mathematics but also for its transcending influence in many practical fields, including statistics, geodesy, geophysics, electromagnetism, astronomy, and even optics (as indicated on wikipedia.org). Just as with so many people with the "David spirit of innovative wisdom", Gauss had the influence of a "Joseph the protector" who helped enable his manifestation. Gauß grew up the son of poor working-class parents, which made the manifestation of his talent more difficult, given the relatively low social mobility of the time. Even so, Gauss's talent, which became evident from his childhood, attracted the attention of the Duke of Braunschweig, who sent him to what is now known as the Braunschweig University of Technology, and later to the University of Göttingen.

 

Interestingly enough, the University of Göttingen was founded by King George II of Great Britain, a man whose life betrays a strong connection to the David spirit of innovative wisdom. As indicated on wikipedia.org, he was the first British king who allowed Parliament the freedom to exercise independent government over Britain, thus paving the way for the rise of the current Parliamentary government system in place in the UK to this day. Interestingly enough, it was for George II's coronation that the German composer Handel was commissioned to write 4 new anthems, one of them being "Zadok the Priest", which has been sung at every British coronation since. "Coincidentally", that anthem's text is derived from the account of the anointing of Solomon, son of David, in 1 Kings 1:38-40. As opposed to Abiathar, Zadok the High Priest proved himself faithful to David, even when David was fleeing from Absalom with the Ark of the (New) Covenant. All of this strengthens the spiritual connection between George II and the David spirit of innovative wisdom.

 

It is also worth noting that the song "God save the king" was developed during George II's reign. As you may know, this song has endured through the centuries, to the point of becoming the unofficial anthem of the UK. Another "interesting" fact about George II is that, during the first London performance of "Messiah" by Handel (on 23 March 1743), George II stood up during the famous "Hallelujah" chorus (which is based on Revelation 19:6, Revelation 11:15, and Revelation 19:16), remaining on his feet until the end of the chorus. It is believed that George II did this as a sign of recognition that his earthly kingship was subservient to that of the King of Kings. Since the protocol was that no one could remain sitting whilst the king stood, the entire audience stood up and remained standing until the end of the piece. For this reason, it became customary, even to this day, for audiences to stand during the Hallelujah Chorus, even when there are no royalty present. Notice, therefore, how George II's reign created changes that stand to this day. This is typical in people with the David spirit of innovation. They forge brand new paradigms that leave a transcending impression that lasts even after they are physically around no more.

 

An electromagnetic anointing

As we shared above, the ampullae of Lorenzini are electroreceptors that allow sharks to detect electromagnetic fields. Interestingly enough, the smelting process to create aluminium (discovered by Charles Martin Hall) requires the passing of a direct electrical current through molten aluminium. As we also shared earlier, silicon has been instrumental in the advancement of modern technology because of its electrical properties. And, as we also shared above, Gauss made significant contributions in many areas, one of the main ones being electromagnetism. All of this shows the intimate connection between electricity, magnetism, and the David spirit of innovative wisdom. If you look through human history, you will notice that mankind's scientific progress skyrocketed (literally) once man began to grow in his understanding of electricity and magnetism. It is as man began to tap into the properties of electromagnetism that technology was taken to a completely new and higher level.

 

Because of this connection between electromagnetism and the David spirit of innovative wisdom, it is not surprising that scientists are currently speaking of the solar storms that will be bombarding the earth between 2010 and 2012. As indicated on sciencecastle.com, the last major solar storm was in 2003, which had significant effects on Europe. The storm caused a power outage in Sweden that left some 50,000 people without electricity, and it also caused the navigation systems of several airplanes to stop working. The next storm, however, is expected to have far more dramatic consequences. As indicated in an article posted on npr.org, a massive solar storm could leave millions of people around the world without electricity, running water, and phone services, meaning that solar storms "could be the Earth's next Katrina", according to the article.

 

Interestingly enough, these solar storms seem to occur every 11 years. This is no spiritual coincidence, for, as we have shared before, the number "11" is the number of judgement, and the sun (when contrasted against the moon) speaks of the Spirit, as well as speaking of God's righteous judgements, for the sun is referred to as the "Sun of Righteousness" in Scripture. The sun also speaks of kingship, for the sun is the dominant star in the heavens. As we have also said before, the apostolic ministry is the one most directly related to judgements, and the evangelistic ministry is the one most directly related to the expansion of kingship, and, as we shared above, angels are apostolic-evangelistic in their behaviour. Therefore, we can conclude that the 11-year solar storm cycles and the storms' resurgence around this time all speak of how God will establish His kingship through angels, through "ruthless" tin-men sharks whose innovative wisdom will fill the Earth with God's judgements. Since the American Church has callously allowed God's tin men to disintegrate, the judgements shall be all the more severe for America. What angers the Lord God of Israel is how the Church (not only in America but in the UK and other places) continues to see the "sinning and perverse world" as the cause for the increased judgement, stupidly failing to realise that God's anger is stirred by the arrogant stubbornness of the Church. The world "does not know better". They are trapped in darkness, and the Church, which is supposed to act as the light of the world, as the light that exposes the darkness of the soul's matriarchy, has chosen, like Vashti, to do things "her way". And, despite God's exhortations to "male up", to begin to act in the judgements of His "male" Spirit, she continues to feel "snug and comfy" in her niche of worthless and shallow traditions, thinking that preventing some people going to literal hell is all that she needs to do on behalf of God. After her grandiose "salvation work", all that she feels compelled to do is to keep these "saved" people entertained in her "sinkhole" pews until "time runs out". Meanwhile, the Lord's purposes are stifled as His "male" Spirit Kingship is hindered from being manifested, and the world continues with its decay and its emptiness, with billions of spiritual callings and potential dying away without ever being manifested (both in and outside the Church). Cursed be the matriarchal Church, and cursed are those who uphold her!!! Cursed are the bastards who want the matriarchal Church to continue with her spiritual scam!

 

Cold green exterminators

According to wikipedia.org, sharks were known up until the 16th century as "sea dogs". This name is actually a misnomer. As you may know, dogs are rather affectionate creatures that are quick to develop bonds of loyalty and emotional attachment. Cats, by contrast, tend to be rather "stand-offish" and independent creatures who, at times, give off the impression that they could not care less about their human owners. In that sense, therefore, you could say that dogs are "warm-blooded" and cats are "cold-blooded". Thus, when you consider the fact that sharks are by no means creatures that you would want to "cuddle" in your arms, it would be more appropriate to associate them with "felines" than with "canines". Sharks tend to be "stand-offish", as shown by the fact that many of them perform a threat display when approached too closely. Many shark species are solitary predators by nature, which emphasises their spiritual connection to "felines".

 

Given the above, it would more appropriate to label sharks as "sea lions" than as "sea dogs". If you consider both the physical qualities and the behaviour of the animals that are officially known as "sea lions", you will notice that they are anything but "lions". They are, for the most part, gentle, sociable, and often defenceless creatures that like to gather in groups of hundreds on land to sunbathe. Sea lions are so docile that they have even been trained for underwater recovery (as indicated on wikipedia.org), just as dogs are trained to find specific items using their sense of smell. Therefore, it would have been more appropriate for them to be called "sea dogs" rather than "sea lions". Sharks, by contrast, share a great many similarities with lions. They are fierce hunters that inspire terror just by "showing up". They either hunt alone or in small groups, just as lions do. They are, in essence, the "supreme predators" of the sea, just as lions are on land. They may be outsized by whales, just as lions are by elephants on land, but there is no doubting that sharks have enough of an edge in the "respect" department to be considered the "kings of the sea", just as lions are considered the "kings of the jungle" on land. In the same way that a king inspires reverent fear through the broadcasting of his name, sharks inspire reverent fear through the broadcast of their name in the waters.

 

The fact that the true sea lions were called "sea dogs" and that the true sea dogs are called "sea lions" reflects the lack of understanding that natural man has about the spiritual "sea". As we have said before, the "sea" is intimately related to the "green horse" of the Apocalypse, and, as we have also shared before, the "fractal" nature of green-horse riders makes them the most misunderstood of all believers, especially by believers trapped in the religious structures of man (and even by those who have broken off of many of those structures but who are not willing to let go of them all).

 

Given that sharks are the true "sea lions", their connection to the green horse becomes all the more evident. As we have seen before, green-horse riders are God's "seafarers" who come with an extermination anointing. They come to execute ruthless "terminal judgements" on the soul matriarchy, and they are utterly unwilling to compromise with the current system that rules over the Church and the world. As we have said before, lions are associated with God's judgements. Therefore, we can say that green-horse riders come like lions in the spirit realm to destroy the structures that underpin the Church's and the world's current judgement system. They are the "seafaring lions", the sharks who navigate the spiritual realm to annihilate the matriarchy of the soul. This "shark nature" remains within them even as they go through green-horse death and 5th-seal hibernation.

 

Green sea sentinels

According to wikipedia.org, some sharks can lie near the sea floor in a state of sleep, actively pumping water over their gills as they lie there, and even remaining with their eyes open. Even in that state of sleep, their wide-open eyes have been known to actively follow divers who swim near them. This further strengthens the spiritual connection between sharks and the green horse, since, as we have said before, green-horse riders are God's spiritual watchmen who are constantly gazing out towards the sea horizon, attentively perceiving the spiritual atmosphere around them (like the sons of Issachar) whilst profoundly longing for God's latter-rain manifestation.

 

Green lean killing machines

As you may know, sharks are very muscular creatures whose streamlined body design turns them into efficient "killing machines". They can locate their prey using their electromagnetic receptors, and once they have honed in on their target, they go after it with laser precision and speed. This technological efficiency and prowess correlates with the tin-man wisdom anointing we have studied so far. This correlation is further emphasised by the sharks' intelligence. As indicated on wikipedia.org, recent studies have indicated that sharks possess powerful problem-solving skills, as well as a high level of curiosity. Unlike other fish, their brain-to-body mass ratio is similar to that of mammals, making them the fish with the highest such ratio (as indicated on wikipedia.org).

 

An example of sharks' intelligence was spotted in 1987, near Smitswinkle Bay in South Africa, where a group of up to 7 great white sharks were seen working together to move the dead body of a partially beached whale to deeper waters in order to eat it. Sharks may seem in popular wisdom to be nothing more than "mindless feeding machines", but they are actually creative problem solvers who exhibit an impartation of innovative "tin-man wisdom".

 

The 5th-seal connection

As we have studied before, the enemies of God take on a Jebusite-Hittite nature during the remnant's 5th-seal hibernation. As we have said before, apostles "gone bad" turn into Jebusites, and prophets "gone bad" turn into Hittites. Therefore, we can say that the 5th-seal enemies of God are apostle-prophets gone woefully awry. This correlates with the nature of sharks.

 

Because of their "killer" nature, we can say that there is a strong "apostolic" nature in them, since apostles are judgement-makers, and God's judgements are like sword thrusts and fire that kill off unrighteousness. As evidenced by their Lorenzini ampullae, sharks also possess a "perceptive" and "intuitive" nature; thus, we can also say that sharks have a strong "prophetic" nature, which means that sharks have a strong apostolic-prophetic manifestation. Therefore, we can say that "sharks" are God's spiritual response to the Jebusite-Hittite attackers of His remnant during their 5th-seal hibernation. In other words, the shark nature in God's green-horse remnant that is only evident in the spirit realm becomes more and more evident in the natural realm the longer God's remnant continue in 5th-seal hibernation, especially as that apostolic-prophetic shark nature begins to pave the way for God's 6th-seal vengeance against His enemies. Just as Hittites have worked to torment and terrorise God's 5th-seal righteous, God's sharks begin to torment and terrorise God's enemies; and, just as Jebusites have worked to ambush and murder God's righteous, God's sharks begin to ambush and kill God's enemies. These sharks are released full-force into the natural realm upon the green-horse riders' death, and their numbers become greater and greater as the 5th-seal stage continues.

 

Just like sharks, 5th-seal believers can "smell blood". They can smell the open opportunity to unleash the vengeance upon God's enemies that will usher in God's kingdom on Earth. This is why Scripture shows 5th-seal believers saying the following:

 

"9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?"

 

As the 5th seal is prolonged, the fullness of the spiritual spectrum in God's remnant is revealed. As we have shared before, the remnant take on a weakness role of pastor-teacher during the 5th seal as they await their redemption. However, as we can infer from all of the above, their sacrifice releases an apostle-prophet shark attack on the Earth that becomes increasingly evident in the natural realm. Thus, 4 out of the 5 ministry endowments begin to get activated during the 5th seal (apostle, prophet, pastor, and teacher), with only the evangelistic endowment awaiting its full and deadly manifestation during the 6th-seal stage of God's vindicating vengeance.

 

Not as cold as they appear

Even though sharks may portray many traits of solitary behaviour and cold-blooded ruthlessness, they are not as "cold" as they appear. As indicated on wikipedia.org, some shark species do show strong social interaction qualities. The scalloped hammerhead, for example, congregates in large schools whose numbers may reach the hundreds. It must be stated, however, that scalloped hammerheads are a relatively docile species, as indicated on wikipedia.org. Thus, from their social propensity for "herd" congregation and their docile behaviour, we can conclude that this shark species exhibits "pastoral" tendencies.

 

Another example of social behaviour in sharks can be seen in silky sharks, who often defer to the (solitary and fearsome) oceanic whitetip shark during feeding, even though both species are of similar size and exhibit similar traits of aggressiveness in their hunting styles. This reveals an acceptance of (cross-species) "hierarchies", which is very consistent with the teacher endowment, which focuses on specialisation, functionality, and methodology.

 

From the above, we can conclude that literal sharks do exhibit traits spiritually consistent with the "female" ministries of pastor and teacher. In the same way, God's remnant "sharks" are not men and women born "without a heart" and who couldn't care less about people or about order and structure. The only reason why they cannot exercise their pastoral and teacher endowments more freely is because the circumstances do not merit it. When you are in the middle of a to-the-death war, it becomes more difficult for you to make outward exhibitions of kindness and empathy. And, when that war involves fighting enemies enabled by the current structures, your opportunity for exhibiting submission to external order diminishes considerably. Even though the hypocritical matriarchal soul may be unable to perceive it, God's remnant "sharks" are indeed compassionate and do care for others, for, as they battle in the Spirit, their longing is to see the manifestation of God's Glory in others. They are enraged by the structures that cause the potential in others to go to waste, and they are enraged by those who are comfortable with their own potential being thrown in Gehenna, for, not only do these men and women squander their own potential, but they also become passive hindrances that hamper the manifestation of God's potential in others, as well as hampering the Kingship of God's righteousness on Earth. By the same token, God's remnant sharks are not anarchical mavericks who abhor order just for the sake of it. They are, in fact, the believers whose souls are the most submissive to God and His righteousness. They become enemies of the current order because they realise that what passes for "order" and "appropriateness" is actually rebellious insubordination against God's order and righteousness, and they realise that submitting to this "order" is actually equivalent to organised insurrection against the Lord's deep purposes.

 

Rachel's Ramah

As we shared earlier, it is believed that the "Arimathaea" mentioned in the New Testament is the same as Ramathaim-Zophim, Samuel's birthplace and "seat of judgement". This town is also referred to simply as "Ramah" in Scripture, as shown in verse 17 below:

 

"15 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life. 16 And he went from year to year in circuit to Bethel, and Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all those places. 17 And his return was to Ramah; for there was his house; and there he judged Israel; and there he built an altar unto the LORD." (1 Samuel 7:15-17)

 

The name "Ramah" appears in the New Testament, in verse 18 of the following passage:

 

"16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, 18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not." (Matthew 2:16-18)

 

Notice how the passage above speaks of the enemy wiping out an entire age group in the region of Bethlehem, all because Jesus had been there as a child. This begs the questions, "Why did all those children have to die, and why did God allow it? Why would Jesus' presence in the area bring so much heartache? Wasn't His presence supposed to bring joy instead of pain, blessing instead of destruction, life instead of death?" To answer these questions, we must consider the reason why the Holy Spirit mentions "Rachel" and why the Lord portrays the massacred children as "her children" (v18).

 

The name "Rachel" literally means "female shepherd"; in other words, "Rachel" means "female pastor" (since "pastor" and "shepherd" are synonyms in the original Greek, in the original Hebrew, and in languages such as Italian and Portuguese). A close study of Genesis 24 and 29 reveal that, when Jacob kissed Rachel and gave his soul to her (Genesis 29:11), it was a prophetic figure of Jacob handing himself and his future generations over to slavery under the pastoral matriarchy. This is the reason why Jacob went on to endure 14 years of indentured servitude under Rachel's father shortly after his fatal kiss, and it is also the reason why the Israelites eventually ended up as slaves in Egypt after they were taken there by means of Joseph, Rachel's first biological son. Through his life of sacrifice, Joseph paid a redemptive price for the sins of his father's surrender to his mother, paving the way for the Israelites' eventual exodus from Egypt; this is the spiritual reason why Joseph's last recorded words in Genesis are a prophecy about God taking the Israelites out of Egypt, along with a request for his bones not to be left in Egypt but to be taken back to the Promised Land (Genesis 50:24-25).

 

The above means that the massacre at Bethlehem was a judgement from God on those whose hearts remained enslaved by the pastoral-matriarchy spirit. Due to their faithfulness to the pastoral matriarchy, they opened up a spiritual door that allowed Herod to walk right in and destroy their spiritual future (represented by their children). All the children slaughtered were 2 years old at the most, meaning that they had not reached the age of 3. This is a figure of believers who call God "Lord" twice but not thrice , i.e.- in their minds and in their emotions, but not in their hearts. It is a figure of believers whose body and soul are sympathetic to God but whose spirit remains stagnant and immature. It is a figure of believers who go 2 thirds of the way but who never enter into the fullness of life in the Spirit, remaining at the soul level at best. This is what happens to those who choose to be "children of Rachel" (i.e.- children of the pastoral matriarchy) rather than sons and daughters of Father God. This is the reason why they unwittingly expose themselves to having Herod come in and devastate their spiritual calling.

 

The "children of Rachel" live under the Old Covenant, enslaved under a spiritual nanny system that focuses on Girgashite hierarchies and teachings, a system in which everyone follows patronising Canaanite pastors who keep their children immature by constantly shielding them from the reality of God's judgements. Therefore, it is no spiritual coincidence that the passage in Matthew 2:16-18 quotes from a prophetic word in Jeremiah 31, a chapter that then goes on to speak of the coming "New Covenant" between God and His people.

 

"Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not." (Jeremiah 31:15)

 

"31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

 

Notice how the Lord points out the covenant that He made with the generation of Israelites whose bodies left Egypt, but whose hearts never left that place (Acts 7:39). Egypt was destined by God to be a temporary place of refuge for the Israelite nation, a bunker where they could take shelter from the famine that hit the land during Jacob's earthly days, and where they could gather the strength required to take the Promised Land. Yet, the Israelites, as a people, turned it into a permanent place; they were comfortable "eternalising" the Old Covenant, acting as if that was all that they could or needed to expect from God. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the Holy Spirit speaks of Yeshua going to and returning from Egypt shortly before speaking of the children of Rachel being slaughtered:

 

"13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. 14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son." (Matthew 2:13-15)

 

We can therefore say that the people of Bethlehem who were alive during Yeshua's earthly days were strongly committed to the pastoral matriarchy spirit of Rachel. As shown by Luke 2:8, that region was a region of many shepherds, and, as such, it was susceptible to the seductive Rachel spirit of distorted pastoring. This bond to the pastoral-matriarchy spirit can be seen in the fact that, when the time came for Jesus to be born, Bethlehem offered him no place to be born except a stable full of animals. As we have shared before, animals are, in essence, spiritless souls; therefore, when human beings are stripped of their spirit potential, they become little more than "glorified animals". Because of their focus on the soul and their disdain for the things of the "male" Spirit, matriarchal pastors unconsciously "animalise" those who follow them. And, since they like to play the role of "soothers of the broken", they are quick to patronise those who follow them. Surreptitiously, as they stand over their "animal" brethren, playing the role of "spiritual experts", these pastors eventually become the "only humans" in the midst of a flock of lesser "animals". This is the reason why matriarchal pastors love to refer to their followers as "sheep", and "their" sheep, at that (in their adulterous possession of their brethren, they become enraged when another "human" pastor dares to "steal" one of "their" "animals"). Thus, when they stand over "their" flock, they see little more than a bunch of "needy people" who would be "lost" without their "guidance" and "leadership". They forge a relationship of dysfunctional interdependence between them and "their" flock: on the one hand, the flock of animal believers depend on their "non-animal" leader for their spiritual "survival", and, on the other hand, the "non-animal" leader depends on his flock of animals for recognition, self-identity and his "provisions", for, what is a shepherd worth if he has no flock of needy beings surrounding him, and how will the shepherd survive if he has no sheep to shear? This subtle and patronising "animalisation" of their brethren carried out by matriarchal pastors explains why the Son of the Most High God was forced to be born amongst animals in the matriarchal region of Bethlehem, a region full of people who could live at the biological level and the soul level (2 levels), but who were unable to live at the spirit level (the 3rd level); the region was full of people who were up to "2 years old", but who had not reached the age of 3. Even as Yeshua was physically amongst them, they continued in their spiritual immaturity, which did nothing but invite Herod's massacre over them.

 

The fact that the Holy Spirit is using the Nickells' dream to point to Rachel's Ramah at this point in time is no spiritual coincidence. As we have been saying in recent months, the Lord has been speaking in the spirit realm about this entire generation no longer being allowed to see the latter-rain manifestation. Just as an entire age group was literally wiped out in Ramah some 2000 years ago, an entire generation of human beings is being banned from the opportunity of living out God's latter-rain visitation. This "wiping out" was, in a sense, an inevitable part of the process. However, the more stubbornly this generation behaved, the less figurative and the more literal this "wiping out" became. Since this present generation of American believers proved itself uninterested in God's New-Covenant "technology" due to its satisfaction with Rachel's paradigms, it is being wiped out from God's latter-day purposes, even as we speak.

 

The fact that Jesus was forced into Egypt during the "Ramah wipe-out" is a figure of how the remnant are, in a sense, forced to disappear from the visible "spiritual scene" and into a more "secular" role as God deals with those who hindered His visitation. This is sadly going on even as we speak. This temporary retreat to Egypt was an inevitable part of the process. However, as America persisted in her Rachel stubbornness, the retreat has become more and more literal, and it is being prolonged to last an entire generation.

 

Scott's issue

As we shared earlier, tin is susceptible to suffering "self-accelerating disintegration" under extreme cold temperatures. As indicated in the German version of Wikipedia, it is strongly believed that this was what led to Robert Falcon Scott's kerosene cans leaking during his South Pole expedition in 1912, which contributed greatly to him and his crew perishing. The kerosene cans had been soldered with tin, and they apparently became leaky when tin pest began to undo the soldering, leading to 75% of the kerosene leaking out.

 

As indicated on wikipedia.org, Robert Scott was a Royal Navy officer and explorer (born in Plymouth, England) who led an Antarctic expedition that was attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole. After much heartache, they were able to reach the South Pole on 17 January 1912, only to discover that Norwegian Roald Amundsen's expedition had gotten there first. Scott and the 4 men from his crew who had gone with him on the last leg of the journey to the South Pole all died on their return trip. By contrast, all of Amundsen's men not only survived, but were in great health at the end of their expedition. We strongly recommend that you read an article by James Glover posted on www.wild.org, which will give you a strong sense as to why Amundsen's expedition was so successful and why Scott's was such a tragic failure.

 

We can find the first seeds of Scott's failure in the fact that Scott went into Antarctic exploration, not out of love for adventure, discovery, or even the outdoors, but as a means to further his naval career in what was then a very competitive Royal Navy environment. As we said above, the "wisdom spirit of David innovation" is strongly associated to mathematics, and mathematicians are known for the fact that they love to study mathematics out of its inherent beauty, even when the "practical application" for what they are studying is nowhere to be seen (yet). You cannot be a true innovator, a true groundbreaker, without an intrinsic, disinterested love for that which you are innovating in, regardless of the ancillary benefits that you may derive from it. Therefore, the fact that Scott's motivations for exploring the Antarctic were not totally "pure" reveals that Scott lacked the innovative wisdom to successfully accomplish a feat such as being the first to safely reach and return from the South Pole.

 

As pointed out by Glover in his article (mentioned above), Scott also seemed to reveal an "English propensity for unnecessary suffering" in the planning of his expedition. This propensity can be seen in his decision to use "man-hauling" rather than "dog-sledding" to move through the Antarctic territory. Instead of using dogs to pull the team's large sledges, he forced his men to pull them, apparently thinking that that would make their expedition all the more "praiseworthy". As we have shared before, the British people have a strong impartation of the apostolic anointing, which enables the British to have a very high pain threshold. When misguided, however, this ability to endure hardship can turn you into a masochistic "flagellant". This correlates with the "flagellant spirit" that blinded believers in America from seeing God's latter-rain vision, and it is the same spirit that contributed to God's faithful remnant having to go through suffering that would have otherwise been totally unnecessary.

 

Whereas Scott was trying to reach the South Pole "the old-fashioned way", Amundsen decided to approach the expedition from an innovative mindset, as shown by all the innovations that Glover points out on page 5 of his article:

bullet

Amundsen had goggles specially designed from a pattern that was originally conceived by Arctic explorer Frederick Cook.

bullet

Amundsen used special pemmican made with peas and oatmeal to add bulk and fibre to their diet.

bullet

Amundsen created a dog pemmican with fish meat and additional fat that not only helped the dogs but was also edible by humans in case of any emergency.

bullet

Amundsen designed sledging cases made of ash from Denmark with circular lids that were easy to open.

bullet

Amundsen designed his own 8-foot-long skis from high-quality hickory that he had purchased many years earlier.

bullet

Amundsen had special sleeping bags that were designed using only fur from 1-year-old reindeer calves slaughtered in the fall.

bullet

Amundsen ordered dogs from North Greenland, which were considered to be the best cold-weather dogs in the world.

bullet

Amundsen packed various layers of Eskimo furs and sealskins.

 

In a fashion characteristic of innovative thinkers, Amundsen's mind was open to good ideas, regardless of where those ideas came from. Therefore, Amundsen diligently studied Eskimo skills in the years prior to his trip to the South Pole. Whereas Victorian-era Brits such as Scott had come to consider Eskimos as primitive people whose technology was not worthy of much consideration, Amundsen saw them "as intelligent fellow humans" who, thanks to hundreds of years of experience, had devised the best methods known to man for living and travelling in extremely cold temperatures.

 

Between 1903 and 1906, Amundsen went on a trip through the Arctic Ocean along the northern coast of Canada that took him from eastern North America to the Pacific Ocean, thus becoming the first man to discover a "Northwest Passage" (as indicated on wikipedia.org, Amundsen announced his discovery from Eagle City, Alaska, which has prophetic significance; the fact that Amundsen's native land of Norway became independent from Sweden around that time also has prophetic significance). During this voyage to the Pacific, Amundsen learnt dog sledding from Eskimo experts, he learnt to coat sledge runners with ice to reduce friction, and he learnt to use the "fan-shaped" dog formation, which helps avoid entire teams plunging into ice crevasses. His northwest passage, therefore, served as a great opportunity to learn and implement high-level cold-weather travel techniques from Eskimos in the Arctic region.

 

Amundsen combined the Eskimos' cold-weather technology with the technology that Norwegians had already developed for cold-weather exploration, thus leading to a substantial knowledge base that enabled Amundsen to successfully travel through extreme cold. This appreciation and accumulation of knowledge acquired in the past is characteristic of those with the David spirit of innovative wisdom. Just as mathematicians do, innovative people realise that new truths are derived as you creatively and systematically combine truths established in the past. Truly innovative people realise that "new truths" are not random occurrences caught from thin air. The learning of "new truths" requires abiding by a system of laws and judgements as you build on innovations from before.

 

As opposed to Amundsen, Scott seemed to purposely stay away from the experience acquired by the Arctic explorers who preceded him. He approached his expedition from a fairly "straightforward" fashion, treating it like a regular long trip that would involve colder temperatures and more resources than normal. Those with the anti-David spirit of Saul scoff at those who seek new and innovative perspectives to present problems. This is why Scott's party consisted of 72 men, compared to Amundsen's mere 19. Those with the anti-innovation spirit of Saul believe that pouring more resources into the problem should be enough to overcome it, and they believe that raw willpower is all that is needed for victory. They fight with the sword of material resources and the sword of emotional coaxing, but they are completely impervious to the sword of the Spirit.

 

Besides the extra men, Scott also took 19 ponies with him, even when ponies had failed miserably in previous British expeditions into cold weather. For multiple reasons, ponies were completely inappropriate for extreme-cold travel. For one, their hooves would punch through the frozen snow, which made their "wading" through the snow very labourious. Also, since they would sweat profusely, their flanks would become encased in solid ice from the frozen sweat, which meant that they needed to be rubbed down at night and covered with blankets. Since they were not cold-weather creatures, their human co-travellers would have to spend time building snow walls for them. All this extra attention made the trip more tiresome not only for the ponies but for the humans. Even so, Robert Scott thought that having enough men around would allow them to overcome all of these issues. Despite Scott's best efforts, however, all 19 ponies died on the trip. It is ironic to consider that Scott's party had as many ponies as Amundsen had humans, and that all of Scott's ponies died, whereas all of Amundsen's men lived through the expedition.

 

The only attempt at "innovation" made by Scott was the 3 motor sledges that he took with him on the trip. Even this, however, was for naught because he did not bother to take with him any spare parts or any tools to work on these sledges. He basically assumed that the motor sledges would work flawlessly through the Antarctic's extreme weather. This is what happens when the spirit of Saul does little more than throw resources into a problem whilst belittling the David anointing of innovative wisdom as if it was an overrated "extra".

 

Because the spirit of Saul is contrary to God's wisdom and judgements (1 Samuel 15:1-9), it generally institutes systems and methodologies that end up doing much more harm than good. Scott, for example, devised an intricate system in which men, dog teams, and ponies leapfrogged each other for much of the voyage south. By contrast, Amundsen left his base camp with a small group of just 5 men. Thus, Scott's complex transport mechanism only made them travel more slowly, requiring a far greater consumption of supplies along the way. Therefore, Scott's refusal to embrace the David spirit of innovative wisdom led to the imposition of cumbersome and unproductive regulations that did nothing but mire those trapped in them.

 

On 1 March 1912, the surviving members of Scott's party who were returning from the South Pole finally found the depot that they had left behind at 82 degrees south, only to realise that 75% of the kerosene stored there had leaked away. As we shared above, this leaking was apparently caused by tin pest eroding the cans' tin soldering. By contrast, some of Amundsen's kerosene cans were found 50 years later, and none had leaked. This is a figure of how Scott's party became susceptible to tin pest because Scott had rejected the "tin-man" anointing of innovative David wisdom, as opposed to Amundsen, who wholeheartedly embraced it, enabling him to thrive and prosper.

 

The fact that the percentage of leaked kerosene was 75% has prophetic significance. As we have shared recently, only a quarter of the potential remnant stepped up to bear the burden and enable God's latter-rain visitation in this generation, with the other 3 quarters (or 75%) remaining idle. Even as 25% were willing to bear 75% of the burden, the other 75% remained unwilling to bear even the 25% that was left to them. As a result, God's visitation for this generation has been disintegrating as tin does when it goes through "tin pest". Since this American generation of believers chose to reject God's innovative New Covenant "tin-man" technology, it is in the process of perishing just as Scott's party did in Antarctica.

 

Interestingly enough, as the Lord had me searching the phrases "tin pest" and "robert falcon scott" on the Internet, He led me to viswiki.com. When I entered their page on "tin pest", I found (near the bottom of the page) a list of the words or phrases that are strongly related to "tin pest". Apparently, this list of phrases is compiled from content on the Internet that is directly or indirectly related to tin pest. The fact that phrases such as "Robert Falcon Scott", "Roald Amundsen", "Norway", and "allotropy" were in the list was to be expected. However, I was surprised to find that the word "Church" was included in the list. Even though I tried to find out why, I was unable to establish the explicit connection between "tin pest" and "Church". Spiritually speaking, however, the connection is more than evident, and we are living it out even as we speak.

 

Man-eat-dog world

The fact that Scott had men hauling the sledges instead of dogs correlates with how the pastoral matriarchy spirit animalises humans, turning them into sheep who serve a "greater" end for the "human" pastor. As we have said before, dogs are a figure of the Canaanite spirit, i.e.- of the pastoral spirit gone awry. Therefore, when Scott had men playing a role that canines should play, he was actually "Canaanising" them, forcing them to conform to the Canaanite spirit of pastoral domination.

 

As we said above, the pastoral matriarchy spirit creates a subtle caste system of "human pastors" and "animal sheep". Therefore, it is not surprising that, during Scott's winter of preparation in the Antarctic region (immediately prior to his trip to the South Pole), he had partitions erected that separated officers and gentlemen from the rest of the team. Instead of promoting a sense of cohesion and equality amongst all team members, Scott kept emphasising the fact that some of them were "more human" than the others. Due to their overbearing-mother nature, Canaanite pastors find it "necessary" to reinforce this lesson constantly in order to maintain their artificial "order" and "unit cohesion". To them, it is impossible to think of mutual submission and enablement (Ephesians 5:21)that is internally forged by the Holy Spirit, for "unity" and "order" can only be achieved (at least in their minds) through the systematic enforcement of external regulations that keep reminding the flock "who the boss really is". This is the reason why the pastoral matriarchy spirit relies so much on the Jebusite spirit to maintain order. Since the Canaanite spirit is inherently left-handed and prone to emotional disarray, it requires the Jebusite spirit of external legalism to prevent absolute chaos breaking out. This is how its Amorite intentions of domination over other souls are made a "reality". The pastoral matriarchy beast is an Amorite-Canaanite beast gone Jebusite.

 

Amundsen started his expedition with 100 dogs, as opposed to the mere 33 that Scott started with. This meant that Amundsen had over 5 dogs per man, as opposed to the 2-plus men per dog that Scott had. In a sense, it is as if Scott had 72 men serving 33 dogs, as opposed to Amundsen, who had 100 dogs serving 19 men. We can therefore say that Scott made man subservient to the dogs, as opposed to Amundsen, who made the dogs subservient to man. This is emphasised by the fact that, during the trip, Amundsen's team killed some of their dogs and ate their fresh meat, which protected them even more from the threat of scurvy. Even though this may sound cruel and "tin-man-heartless", it emphasises the fact that Amundsen was not about to let Canaanite sentimentalism get in the way of his co-travellers' lives and health.

 

Interestingly enough, Amundsen served his team members much seal meat during the expedition, which provided them with a great supply of vitamin C to avoid scurvy, as well as fat that was essential for enduring cold weather. By contrast, Scott provided his team mostly with tin food that had little or no vitamin C, and very little seal meat; even when he did provide them with seal meat, it was generally over-cooked, which reduced its vitamin C content. As we saw above, the seals known as "sea lions" should really be named "sea dogs". Thus, we can see how Amundsen kept subjugating the "dog spirit" under the dominion of the man-spirit, instead of the other way around.

 

It is worth noting that the nail that sealed Scott's fate was a set of confusing orders that he left before he went with his crew of 4 on the last leg of the trip to the South Pole. These confusing orders were intended for a potential rescue party heading south with dogs in case Scott and the other 4 men delayed in returning. Because of the years of military-style discipline that Scott's men had lived under, they were trained (like dogs) to do nothing unless very specific orders were given, which prevented them going far enough south to find and rescue Scott before he died. Because he had deprived his men of the spirit of proactive innovation, turning them into trained animals dependent on the guidance of a "superior human", Scott ended up sealing his own doom.

 

BP attack

As the Lord has had us writing these shark postings, the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico has been an ongoing headline story. Even two and a half months after the accident happened (on 20 April 2010), the oil was still gushing out from the sea floor and into the Gulf's waters, and that oil was allowed to float on the water's surface, without anyone picking it up. Because of barack obama's deliberate and criminal negligence and obstructionism, what could have been a minor incident has turned into the largest oil leak in American history. The oil has reached many shores and beaches along the Gulf Coast, and it has done terrible damage to the flora and fauna in the region, as well as affecting the livelihoods of many fishermen and people whose work is related to the oil industry.

 

The acts of wilful negligence and obstructionism by b.o. are many. For example, he refused the giant skimmers that many nations offered a mere 2 or 3 days after the accident. He refused to waive an antiquated and artificial law from 1920 known as the "Jones Act" that requires that all goods transported by water between U.S. ports be carried in U.S.-flagged ships, be built in the U.S., be owned by U.S. citizens, and be crewed by U.S. citizens or permanent residents (as indicated on wikipedia.org). Part of the reason why he refused to waive this law is because of his unholy alliance with labour unions. As he kept this "Saulite" law in place to please the unions and himself, he showed no regard for how the law was handcuffing the foreign nations that were trying to help with this major disaster. By the end of June 2010, b.o. had only accepted assistance from 5 of 28 nations that had offered to help. Ironically, as indicated on firstthings.com, it took him 53 days to accept help from the British, even when he has done little more than berate and demonise British Petroleum from the moment he began to make public comments about the disaster. Even when the oil-skimming barges were finally allowed into the Federal waters affected by the disaster, they were promptly shut down by obama's Federal inspectors because of bureaucratic regulations over the number of fire extinguishers and life jackets on board! By the end of June 2010, only some 31of 2,000 available oil skimmers had been mobilised to the waters off the Florida coast that were affected, forcing Florida to hire 5 additional skimmers to operate off its coast! At the end of June 2010, a massive A-Boat skimmer (the largest in the world) provided by Taiwan was not being allowed to join the cleanup effort because it was still awaiting bureaucratic clearance from the EPA! As indicated on thedailycaller.com, the EPA's clearance was required because some of the filtered seawater that the skimmer would return to the Gulf waters would contain traces of oil! In other words, b.o. saw more of an environmental hazard in filtered water that could contain 1% oil than in unfiltered water that was fully saturated with oil!

 

From the get-go, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal began to act in the spirit of innovative David wisdom, seeking and suggesting creative solutions to prevent the oil reaching the Louisiana coast, but he was ignored and hindered at every turn by a bastard "president" who sees Jindal as nothing more than a potential political rival in future, a rival that must not be enabled in any way, lest he may appear a competent executive and leader. Jindal quickly requested access to the oil booms that the Federal government kept stored in some warehouses in Maine, but the b.p. (i.e.- bastard president) refused to make those booms available for many weeks. Since the b.p. stalled in providing the booms, Jindal proactively moved towards building sand berms to protect Louisiana's marshes from the incoming oil. After much clamouring, he finally got approval from the b.p. to build these berms; this approval came in early June, some 6 weeks after the disaster had started (as indicated on reuters.com). Not surprisingly, however, the bastard "president" shut down the sand dredging that was being done to create these sand berms. The reason? As indicated on wdsu.com, the bastard's little people were concerned about the environmental damage that the sand dredging could do! How more cynical can the little bastard and his minions get?

 

As all of this has happened, the b.p. has been on golf-course outings at least 7 times, holding barbecues and dinners at the Flies House (nytimes.com), and attending ball games, all as he claims that he spends every "waking moment" thinking about the oil leak, and even after vowing (3 weeks into the crisis) that he "will not rest until the leak has stopped". For a beast so "concerned" with the oil leak "from day one", as he claims, it is surprising that it took him 8 days to begin "mobilising" federal resources to the Gulf Coast, leaving British Petroleum completely on its own for the first 12 days, as indicated on nytimes.com.

 

There is deep prophetic significance behind this tragic oil leak in America's Gulf Coast. The fact that it happened at sea points to the green horse of the Apocalypse, for, as we have said before, that is the horse most directly related to the "sea" and to spiritual "seafaring". The blackness of the oil that has covered the Gulf's waters and coast points to America's spiritual regression into the black-horse stage. Even as she stood in the midst of the green-horse "sea" of opportunity, she decided to "fade back to black", and "going black" in the spiritual timeland of "green" goes as well as black oil in the green-blue sea.

 

Just as a shark attacks from underwater, this oil leak has attacked America's shores from the depths of the sea. Just as sharks are associated in popular culture with attacks on beachgoers, this oil leak has assailed multiple beaches throughout America's Gulf Coast region. Thus, this oil leak is a spiritual shark attack on America brought about by America's unwillingness to go "spiritually green". Spiritual shark attacks from the remnant spirit were an inevitable part of God's restoration process, but their magnitude has been exacerbated by America's decision in November 2008 to elect a deceitful demagogue simply because he was black. Out of Canaanite-induced guilt, America chose to have a b.p., a black president, without realising that she was actually getting a b.p., a bastard petard who is willing to let the entire Gulf region go to Gehenna if it can serve to further his radical ideological agenda. Instead of caring about what could happen to the wildlife and the inhabitants of the region, b.o. chose to let the leak crisis drag on. Why? Because, the worse the leak was, the more easily he could demonise oil companies and push his wealth-redistributing cap-and-trade environmental agenda. The fact that British Petroleum is a British company only increased b.o.'s thirst for "corporate blood", for he holds a deep resentment against the British people on account of his Kenyan father, who sowed into him the seeds of bitterness and hatred against the "British imperialists" who ruled b.o.'s homeland of Kenya for so many decades.

 

As you may now, psychopaths are notorious for the cold-blooded ruthlessness with which they pursue their egotistical and self-aggrandising ends. Therefore, we can say that this leak has served to highlight the all-too-obvious psychopathy of b.o. Even as this psychopathy has become glaringly obvious, most Americans continue to look the other way, for it is unfathomable for them to believe that a third-world psychopath is now ruling over America.

 

"I shall not spill", saith the Lord

This oil leak has been commonly referred to by the media as an "oil spill", possibly because, in past oil disasters at sea, the oil has actually spilled from tankers onto the ocean waters. The word "spill" denotes liquid that was being kept in a container and has scattered down onto a surface below the container because the liquid poured out for some reason. In this case, however, the oil has actually been leaking up from the sea bed and into the ocean through an unplugged hole. Also, the word "spill" denotes an initial desire to keep 100% the liquid within the container until an appointed time in the future, as when oil is placed in a tanker and transported to a destination where it is then taken out of the tanker. In this case, however, the initial desire behind the oil well was not to keep 100% of the oil underneath the sea bed until an appointed time in the future. Instead, the intent was to constantly extract the liquid from the sea bed, creating a permanent flow of oil from the sea bed up to the surface, where it would then be placed in a container and transported to another destination. In short, the word "spill" falls short in describing the Gulf oil disaster in two ways:

bullet

It denotes liquid pouring downwards, not upwards

bullet

It denotes a desire to keep 100% of the liquid in a "stationary" state within the container, not a permanent stream of liquid that intends to constantly move that liquid out of its current location.

 

Even though most spills involve some sort of "leak", we can see from the above that, sometimes, the word "spill" is less appropriate than the word "leak". Thus, it is better to use the term "oil leak" than "oil spill" in the context of the Gulf disaster.

 

The 2 distinctions above that make the word "spill" inappropriate in this disaster point to a prophetic issue that has prevented the American Church understanding the nature of God's latter-day visitation. The Church has been expecting God's Kingdom to be "dumped down" from above as if it were a pre-fabricated city 100% equipped for habitation "from day one". Therefore, we can say that the "Trekkie" Church expects God's Kingdom to be a "spill" dumped down from above in one fell swoop. The Church does not realise, however, that God's Kingdom is to be birthed from within His people, up from the ground where God's green-horse riders sacrificially die and are buried (like a rose rising from the ground in the spring). By the same token, the matriarchal Church fails to realise that the manifestation of God's Kingdom and Glory is a growing process (not an "event"), just as the Lord so clearly illustrates it in Ezekiel 47. It is to grow as a river that goes from a slow stream to an overwhelming torrent that permeates the fullness of the human experience. In other words, God has ordained a stream flowing up from the very depths of His people, a constant stream that grows until it fills all in all (Ephesians 1:22-23). This up-flowing from the deep wells of God's "green" people does involve a "sudden" breakthrough moment, just as when the oil in a well has finally been tapped and begins to gush forth. But, once the breakthrough happens, a constantly-intensifying stream must flow until God's purposes are fulfilled. The breakthrough is the beginning, not the end of the story.

 

From all of the above, we can conclude that the media's insistence on using the word "spill" instead of "leak" during the first 2-and-a-half months of the disaster is a subtle spiritual reflection of the misunderstanding that natural man has about God's latter-day purposes. The natural man wants a spill, but God has decreed an up-flowing and constantly-intensifying stream, and no amount of Babelian determination (Genesis 11:6-8) will change God's thinking on the matter.

 

Fuel leak

Since oil is, in essence, a fuel, we can then say that the Gulf disaster involved a "fuel leak". Seen in these terms, we can see the strong correlation to the kerosene leak that Scott's party experienced, given that kerosene is also a fuel. Through this fuel leak, the Lord is declaring that America is experiencing a spiritual tin pest. Because of the American Church's arrogance and stubborn ignorance, she is squandering the anointing of innovative David wisdom that the Lord was preparing for her in this generation, allowing it to leak away due to negligence and malice, just as b.o. is doing with the oil leaking into the Gulf Coast.

 

There is a prophetic significance behind this fuel going to waste. As we said above, God does not want a "spill"; He wants a "stream". And, as long as man is bent on expecting a "spill", he will remain unable to recognise the out-flowing streams welling up from within God's remnant people. If these wells are ignored, the precious liquid of life within them will simply gush forth and be wasted away, just like the millions of gallons of oil that were lost in this disaster for no good reason at all.

 

As you may know, most of the oil that leaked into the Gulf suddenly began to "disappear", apparently being disintegrated by microorganisms in the water. This correlates with the "tin-pest" disintegration that tin goes through when exposed to "unwelcoming" cold. Most of this disintegrated oil could have been rescued, had the bastard psychopath (the b.p.) allowed the skimmers to be deployed in time. In the same way, the life-giving fuel that was available to this generation is in the process of disintegration, and its wells are being sealed shut. The way things are currently paying out, the life-giving fuel of God's innovative wisdom is about to disappear and be seen no more until a more deserving generation comes along.

 

The leak of torment

In order to further understand the spiritual significance behind the Gulf Coast oil leak, we must consider the following passage:

 

"1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man." (Revelation 9:1-5)

 

Notice how the passage above speaks of the "bottomless pit" being "opened" (v2) and of smoke with locusts coming out and "darkening" everything. The word "bottomless" that appears throughout the passage above (and the rest of Revelation 9) was translated from the Greek word abyssos. As we have said before, the sea is, in essence, a giant chasm or abyss filled with water, and, as indicated on answers.com, the word "gulf" literally means "a deep, wide chasm, an abyss". Therefore, the oil that is leaking out from the opened hole at the bottom of the Gulf's ocean floor, over 5000 feet below the surface, is a manifestation in the literal realm of the word in Revelation 9.

 

As we have shared before, Revelation 9 speaks of the judgements released in the spirit realm by believers in the midst of their 5th-seal hibernation. This is the reason why the number 5 is so prominent in the passage above (the judgement of Revelation 9 is released by the 5th angel, and the torment it causes is to last for 5 months, with the reference to the 5 months appearing in verse 5). In a sense, therefore, we can say that the passage above is the narration of a spiritual "shark attack" released by God's remnant as the 5th-seal hibernation period progresses. As a parenthesis, it would not be surprising if the impact of this oil leak will continue to be felt in a strong way for 5 calendar months, meaning that the brunt of the leak's impact will run through 20 September 2010.

 

As we have seen before, the word "pit" in the phrase "bottomless pit" that is used in Revelation 9:1 and 9:2 was translated from the Greek word phrear, which, coincidentally, appears 5 times in the New Testament, and is used to refer to "wells of water". Therefore, the phrase "bottomless pit" in Revelation 9:1 and 9:2 points prophetically to the Paradise refuge for the remnant set apart by God in the midst of dry Sheol. Thus, the locusts that emerge from this "bottomless pit" are not demonic agents from satan, but, rather, God's agents of judgement on Earth. This is confirmed by the fact that they obey God's instructions and do not harm anyone who has the seal of God on them. Were they agents of the enemy, they would attack and torture the righteous, instead of exempting them from all harm. The fact that these locusts are "gushing forth" from a "well" (phrear) emphasises the spiritual connection to the oil leaking out from the seabed well.

 

The fact that the locusts are not to hurt "the grass of the Earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree" (v4) means that the only ones who receive God's "seal of approval" are those who have embraced the green-horse anointing (given that all 3 things listed in verse 4 are directly or indirectly related to greenness). Thus, the judgement of Revelation 9 is a manifestation of green-horse judgements gushing forth from the believers who have gone through the 4th seal's green-horse death and are in the limbo land of 5th-seal Paradise.

 

The spiritual connection between the Gulf Coast leak and the remnant's 5th-seal hibernation is reinforced by the fact that the oil was leaking out from the sea bed. This connection to the 5th-seal is reinforced even further by the fact that the company involved is British Petroleum. As we have shared before, the remnant spirit was forced to take refuge in Britannia's spiritual atmosphere when America refused to enable God's visitation in 2005. The remnant spirit was supposed to have been unleashed from Britannia as soon as the 4-year delay was over. But, since America never came out of her spiritual slumber, she simply left God's remnant trapped in "hibernation limbo", and she sealed her negligence towards God's remnant spirit by electing a deceitful Korah demagogue simply because he was "black".

 

Because America was happy to leave the remnant in their 5th-seal Sheol cave of isolation, the Lord is unleashing spiritual attacks on America, and she has made herself all the more vulnerable by her willing to embrace Korah leadership such as that of turban-wearing barack hussein obama. It is sad to see that, even as b.o. (or, should we say, b.p., the bastard psychopath?) has carried out in plain sight all the negligence and obstructionism detailed above, most Americans still give him either a neutral or positive grade on his performance in this oil disaster. And, on the whole, they continue to like him "personally", even if they are beginning to disagree with his destructive Korah policies. This beast can rob, kill, and destroy in the light of day, before the eyes of the entire world, and yet most Americans remain naively blind to the gravity of his pilfering, for they allow him to reshape their view of reality through words and superficial actions loaded with double-speak and outright falsehoods. To barack hussein obama, words are nothing more than tools to reshape others' perception of reality; he believes that, if he says something enough times and with a straight face, people will eventually believe the words and ignore the reality before their eyes. Through his words, this spineless octopus leaks out smokescreens and fashions fantasy worlds that tickle the emotions of those who are more interested in what they feel than in the cold, hard truth. Truth-seekers hate inconsistency, for they know that truth is inherently solid and self-consistent. That is why truth endures forever, and falsehood lasts only for a short season. The fact, therefore, that America remains blind to the b.p.'s falsehoods even as he commits criminality in plain sight is further evidence in support of the conclusion that this generation of Americans shall not behold the glory of the coming of the Lord, for they loved not the truth, choosing to pursue emotion-centric blessings and to tolerate outright lies instead.

 

Out of nowhere, the Lord impressed my heart with the need to add the following passage. Those in the Spirit will understand the spiritual connection to all of the above:

 

"22Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: 23The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: 24But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) 25Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: 26The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren." (Genesis 49:22-26)
