Animals I saw recently:
This is how God sees His children from His Heavenly position as their spiritual natures 'should be' one day... maybe not at this moment.
This is the 'pagan rites and rituals' being presented in My House as praise and worship. Most houses are true and spiritual, but too many are not... they are just playing music to be enjoyed and not to praise Me.
I saw this one on the face of a TV minister, a famous one, and no not Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Baker, nor on TBN either... he is a very 'conservative' minister. I personally didn't care for him, but God brought it back to me about these animals I have seen in the past.
This was over the face and head of another televangelist on a cable station, a local one in San Diego County.
I have already shared with you.
As some of you may have noticed, this word was emailed to us on October 6, 2004, and it was posted 26 days later, on November 1, 2004. When we initially posted this word, we simply wrote "Comments pending...". The Lord had given us a few thoughts on these 5 animals, but the Lord just would not allow us to post anything. A couple of days ago (on August 4, 2006), the Lord suddenly said to us, "It is time to post comments on the 5-animals word". When we sat down to meditate on this word yesterday (August 5, 2006), we were amazed at the deep message contained within it. We then understood that we did not have enough understanding on November 1, 2004 to truly understand what the Lord was saying here. As we share in a previous word, the Lord began to stir our hearts about the Rapture and His Second Coming on Sunday, November 7, 2004, just 6 days after initially posting this word. The things that the Lord began to teach us since then have allowed us to have a deeper understanding of this prophetic word by sister Lauretta. It took us 642 (=6*107) days from the day of this word's initial posting, and 636 (=12*53) days since November 7, 2004 to "finally get it"!!! Glory be to God for His patience, and glory be to Him for His wisdom, for the Lord God is the source of all wisdom, and He is worthy of all honor and praise.
In order to understand this word, we must first meditate on each of the animals individually. After that, we will combine each of the animal's meanings to get the full picture of what God was declaring through this word sent by sister Lauretta so many months ago.
We must first consider several of the skunk's characteristics to understand the spiritual meaning behind this animal; most of the characteristics about the skunk that are mentioned in this article were retrieved from wikipedia.org:
The word "bottomless" near the end of verse 1 was translated from the Greek word abyssos, from which we get the English word "abyss". In ancient times, this word was used to refer to "Orcus", a very deep chasm in the lowest parts of the Earth considered the "realm of the dead". This region was also called "Hades" in Greek, or "Sheol" in Hebrew.
The word "pit" at the end of verse 1 (and throughout this passage) was translated from the Greek word phrear, which literally means "well". This word appears 7 times in 5 different verses in the New Testament (Luke 14:5, John 4:11, John 4:12, Revelation 9:1, Revelation 9:2), and, outside of Revelation 9, it is used to refer to "wells" with water. Therefore, the phrase "bottomless pit" should really say, "abyss (water) well" or "(water) well of Sheol". This means that the so-called "bottomless pit" refers to the part of Sheol where water could be found. As we have seen from Luke 16:22-26, this is "Paradise", or "Abraham's bosom", the temporary holding place where the "dead" righteous are placed until God's vindicating vengeance is unleashed on Earth.
Thus, we can safely say that the mistranslated phrase "bottomless pit" actually refers to Paradise, meaning that the locusts coming out of the so-called "bottomless pit" are not unrighteous spirits from satan, but, rather, righteous spirits who have died in God. Notice that they were commanded to hurt only those who did not have the "seal of God" on "their foreheads" (v4). Why do the eschatological parrots continue to insist that these locusts are evil creatures sent by satan? Would satan command his cursed host of evil spirits to hurt all except those who have the seal of God? Consider what the Lord says in Ezekiel 9:
"1He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying,Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. 2And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar. 3And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side; 4And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. 5And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: 6Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house." (Ezekiel 9:1-6)
[Notice that this passage speaks of a group of "6 men" (v2). It is 5 men if you do not include the one with the writer's inkhorn, and 6 if you include him.
The word "city" in the phrase "them that have charge over the city" (v1) was translated from the Hebrew word iyr, which can also mean, "excitement, anguish of terror". Therefore, the phrase could also be translated as "them that have charge over the terror". This speaks of those who have been given the "keys of terror", i.e.- those who have been given spiritual authority to unleash the terrors of Sheol because they have been willing to suffer the torments of Sheol for the sake of God's purposes in others. As we have seen before, these "5 and 6 men" with the "keys of terror" are God's resurrected green-horse riders. As we have said before, green-horse riders have an "obliteration" anointing over them, as shown by the fact that they are called to "slay utterly" (v6).]
Notice that this pitiless army of slayers are an army of God that carry out His judgments of vindication. As they appear, the glory of the God of Israel moves to the "threshold of the house" (v3). Would the Glory of God manifest itself in the midst of satanic demons who operate on behalf of the evil one? Notice that this army of slayers is told not to touch those who have the mark of God (v4) on their foreheads (v6), meaning that they are the same army of locusts mentioned by God in Revelation 9.
Notice that Revelation 9:2 (quoted above) declares that the smoke from the water well (translated as "pit") "darkened the sun". This points to God's prophecy in Joel 2:28-32, which is quoted by Peter at the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:17-21). Therefore, the locusts army in Revelation 9 is the same army of believers described by God in Joel 1:1-2:11. Notice also that the locusts strike men with their "scorpion" tails (Revelation 9:5, 10), meaning that they strike from behind, which is a figure of "hidden" attacks.
After describing the army of locusts brought forth by the 5th trumpet of the Apocalypse, Revelation 9 proceeds to describe an army of 200 thousands of thousands on horses, which is brought forth by the 6th trumpet:
"16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them,having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt." (Revelation 9:16-19)
Notice how this army also uses their tails to attack the enemy, which confirms that these 2 armies are interrelated. Therefore, we can conclude that sulfur and Sheol are spiritually related, since the locusts army rises out of Sheol and the army of horses uses "brimstone" (i.e.- sulfur) as a weapon of attack. This connection between sulfur and Sheol can also be seen in the following passage:
"10And the devil that deceived them was cast into thelake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:10-15)
[The word "hell" that appears in verses 13 and 14 were translated from "Hades", the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word "Sheol"]
The locusts and horses armies of Revelation 9 are righteous armies, so their use of "sulfur" is according to the purposes of God. The skunks mentioned by sister Lauretta in the prophetic word, however, are unrighteous. In a sense, they are "mirror distortions" of the righteous armies of Revelation 9. As we have seen before, the world of spiritual light and the world of spiritual darkness tend to mirror each other in many ways. As God's remnant pushes the "spiritual process" along through their yielded lives, the world of light evolves towards its glorious manifestation, and the world of darkness degrades towards its inglorious end. Every evolution in the world of light will forge a parallel degradation in the world of darkness. Every temporal damage suffered by the remnant in the world of light unleashes an eternal damage on those who abide in the world of darkness.
Thus, we can conclude that the "sulfur weapon" used by skunks reveals their connection to unrighteous Sheol spirits, which, as we have seen before, are Hittite spirits of torment and despair. Just like prophets (their counterparts in the world of light), Hittites attack with tormenting "stings". Hittites do not "kill you off" immediately. Instead, they prefer to torture you, creating a never-ending sense of anguishing despair and emptiness in you. Through this torture, they drive you to a deep and longing desire for death. This correlates with the tormenting nature of the skunks' "sulfuric spray". It does not kill you, but it makes you feel like "hell" (i.e.- Sheol). The smell left by the spray is not only unbearable, but it is very difficult to remove, which turns it into an unrelenting torment for the skunk's victim. The skunk's spray can also cause irritation and, in some cases, temporary blindness, which emphasizes the spray's "tormenting sting" and its impartation of "Sheol darkness".
In the world of light, this "torment" feature is reflected in the locust stings described in Revelation 9:5-6; these stings torment people for 5 months, and those stung will long to die, but death will flee from them. The "5 months" of torture are a green-horse judgment against those who have misused (or accepted the misuse of) ministerial grace. It is a judgment against Korah and those who choose to stick by him, despite all the evidence of God's judgment against him. The "5 months" are also an "ironic" application of God's grace by His green-horse riders against the "25" crowd, forcing them to admit their weakness, even in the middle of all the grace they may have initially received from God. In other words, the "5 months" come to force a confession of weakness from the arrogant "25" crowd. It is a judgment against them for refusing to make the transition from "5" to "6".
Unlike bears, skunks do not hibernate in the winter, but they do become inactive and eat infrequently. They often overwinter in dens that they generally reuse multiple times. As we have said before, Sheol is a spiritual cave of Hittite despair. Therefore, the skunks' winter dens and "semi-hibernation" also point to the Hittite spirits from Sheol.
To the human sense of sight, the chemical sprayed by the skunk seems innocuous, but, to the human sense of smell, it is "lethal", as shown by the fact that it can be detected by insensitive human noses up to 1 mile downwind. In Scripture, the wind is related to the spirit (John 3:8). Therefore, the fact that the skunk's chemical attack is transported by the wind emphasizes the invisible, spiritual nature of the spiritual skunk's attack.
Skunks have highly developed senses of smell and hearing, but they have poor vision. They have difficulty seeing objects more than 3 meters (about 10 feet) away. Since the senses of smell and hearing detect invisible odors and sounds, this feature emphasizes the skunk's Hittite (i.e.- distorted prophet) nature.
Skunks have muscles located next to their scent glands which allow them to spray their victims 3 meters (10 feet) away with high accuracy. This means that the spray acts as a well-directed arrow that heads for a "specific" target. This points to the Hittites' ability to launch invisible surprise arrows (which correlates with the fact that the spray is launched from behind). Prophets feel as the specific targets of God's love and grace, and, in the same way, they are prone to launching arrows headed for specific people and situations. Hittites, who are "prophets gone bad", have a similar "specificity" in their arrows.
Because of their very limited vision (mentioned above), they have a hard time discerning oncoming cars, and are therefore prone to becoming roadkill.
As we have said before, cars are a figure of "teacher methodologies". As we have said before, teachers who stray from God's purposes turn into Girgashites. Therefore, cars, in a negative sense, are a figure of "Girgashite methodologies". As we have also said before, Girgashites and prophets do not get along and are always in constant conflict. The Jebusites, who are the right-side "older" cousins of the Girgashites, usually end up "killing" the "crazy" prophets. In short, Girgashites argue with prophets, and Jebusites kill them. Prophets are at odds with "Girgashite order", and are eventually killed by "Jebusite law".
As we have said before, Jebusites are "apostles gone bad", Hittites are "prophets gone bad", and Girgashites are "teachers gone bad". Therefore, it can be said that, just as Girgashites and prophets are at constant odds, true teachers and Hittites are also at constant odds; and, just as Jebusites "kill" prophets, true apostles "kill" Hittites. In short, true teachers argue with Hittites, and true apostles "kill" them. Hittites are at odds with "teacher order", and are eventually killed by "apostolic law".
All of the above explains why skunks are so susceptible to roadkill. As Hittites, skunks are at odds with "teacher cars", and constant conflicts with these "teacher cars" gets them "killed" by "apostolic drivers".
Skunks are short-lived animals, with fewer than 10% living more than 3 years. As we have shared before, prophets are, in a sense, designed to "die young". Since Hittites are "prophets gone bad", Hittites also have a tendency to "die young". Therefore, the skunks' short lifespan once again certifies their Hittite nature.
Skunk kits stay with their mother until they are 2 to 3 months old. They then disperse to live on their own. As we said above, prophets and Girgashites never get along, especially because prophets are very rebellious against methodologies that they deem artificial or purposeless, and Girgashite methodologies are always artificial and devoid of Godly purpose. Prophets are also strongly aware of their endowed grace, which makes them bold adventurers into the unknown. They are willing to step outside the Girgashite covering of man, even when everyone else chooses to remain behind, out of Girgashite fear. Because of their boldness, prophets are also the first to defy Amorite decrees, which causes them to draw the ire of the Amorite kings. That is why Amorite "ministers" are quick to use the term "lone ranger" in a derisive way when referring to prophets who abhor the covering of their "kingly name" over them. All of the above explains why skunk kits leave their mothers so early. Because of their Hittite (i.e.- distorted prophet) nature, they are reluctant to stay under a natural covering for too long, and they have an inherent boldness to "venture out on their own".
Because of their "free-spirit" nature, prophets are not inherently good at "controlling" people. Therefore, when they become parents, they have a tendency to treat their children as "younger brothers" than as "sons" or "daughters" per se. This is because the prophetic endowment makes us aware of every human's direct relationship with God. It makes us aware of the "blood connection" that unites all of humanity (Acts 17:26). That is the reason why the prophet Yeshua, of whom we are sons and daughters (Hebrews 2:13), also calls us His brothers and sisters (Hebrews 2:11, John 20:17). As we have said before, prophets have a strong sense of "communal" (or "communist") brotherhood.
Because of the above, prophets become very poor parents when they are not tempered by the right-handed apostolic and teacher endowments. As we have said before, God was willing to see Abraham as His "friend" because Abraham was a father willing to judge his children, commanding them to do justice and judgments (Genesis 18:16-19). When the prophetic and the apostolic are "kept separate", prophets become unrighteously carefree spirits with little sense of responsibility and accountability; and, as parents, they impart that carelessness to their children. As we have shared before, the hippie movement of the 1960s was a manifestation of a mighty prophetic movement gone mightily bad, which explains why hippies were such "happy-go-lucky" fellows. Non-apostolic prophets are very good at making un-requested, voluntary offerings, but are very bad at making obligatory payments.
As we said above, skunks leave their mother and disperse 2 or 3 months after being born. When the young skunks meet again, they raise their tails vertically, do a little posturing, and proceed to rub against each other and roll around as if they were effusively embracing each other. This affectionate outpouring of brotherly emotion correlates with all of the above. Because of their Hittite (prophet-gone-bad) nature, skunks (at least when younger) have a strong sense of "brotherly camaraderie". This "communist camaraderie" reappears in cold weather, when they sometimes gather in communal dens.
From the above traits, it can be inferred that spiritual skunks are strongly Hittite. The following traits reveal another influence that is evident in skunks:
"1Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment. 2Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow. 3He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet." (Isaiah 41:1-3)
The "islands" mentioned in verse 1 refer to the isolated little kingdoms that Amorites try to preserve under their totalitarian control, just like that pathetic little skunk called castro and his pitiful little plantation known as "the island of Cuba". The Amorite skunks who "hiss" and demand silence in their presence shall be made silent before the Lord, for He shall speak, and the Earth shall be full of His judgments (Psalm 105:7, Isaiah 26:5-11).
The names of kings are constantly broadcast in the airwaves over the territory that they possess. Wherever God is king, His true Name is broadcast in the air, and those who are submissive and righteous rule as kings with Him (2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 1:6, Revelation 2:26-28, Revelation 3:21). In other words, where God is the One and Only King, "David" rules in Him. Where God is not allowed to rule, Saul reigns (1 Samuel 8:6-9:1), and his reign is one of purposelessness and death (1 Samuel 14, 2 Samuel 31). The airwaves must be filled with the name of a king; it is only a matter of whose name will fill them.
As we said above, the scent sprayed by skunks can be felt 1 mile away, even by humans. This is a figure of the skunk broadcasting its name throughout a territory. Therefore, it once again points to the skunks' Amorite nature. Because of the stench of their spray, skunks become "memorable" to all who encounter them, meaning that skunks cause their names to resound in one's mind long after one has encountered one of them. Amorite kings always want to make sure that you remember their name, especially when you decide to defy their selfish, capricious, and unjust wills.
Amorites are "strong" by nature (Amos 2:9). Skunks may not be known for their "strength", but it must be noted that they do have short but well-muscled legs. Therefore, skunks are a figure of Amorite kings that were once tall but have been cut down to a small size. However, these castro-ite skunk kings hold on to their remaining human glory for dear life. Even in their decline, they continue proclaiming their "strength", which is symbolized by the skunks' short but strong legs. The skunk's legs are the remnants of a conquering strength that once was.
Skunks are "omnivorous", meaning that they are willing to eat anything in their path. This makes them similar to bears, which, as we have seen before, are Amorite-Hittite in their nature. This once again emphasizes the Amorite nature of skunks. Amorites (who are evangelists gone bad) are like Pac-Men who are out to eat up and possess everything in their path, and, when this conquering nature is combined with the Hittite spirit, it can lead to devastating hordes filling the landscape (or the air, in the case of skunks).
Male skunks do not participate in raising the young, and, on occasions, they even kill them. As we have said before, Amorites are opportunistic fornicators who conquer people in order to derive benefits from them. Once they have gotten all they want, they dump the person and move on to the next victim. Therefore, the male skunks' disregard for the young they beget is a reflection of their Amorite fornicating nature. The fact that they may even kill them is also a reflection of Amorite ruthlessness. Amorites are so intoxicated with their own strength that they do not mind shoving others aside when those others are getting in the way of their own personal benefits. Amorites hate to be "inconvenienced" by "little" people.
Skunks often overwinter in a huddle of one male and several females, sometimes as many as a dozen. This once again reflects the skunks' Amorite nature. As we have said before, Amorites are like roosters who love to be surrounded by a harem of unconditionally loving hens. Unlike God, Amorites use their hens, extracting benefits from them without ever truly committing themselves in loving sacrifice for them. Amorites are fornicating roosters who see their harem as evidence of their "conquering greatness". Unlike the Lord, Amorites never become one with those whom they conquer. Those conquered always remain at least one level below them. The Amorites' quest for conquest is geared towards glorifying themselves, not towards glorifying those conquered.
From all of the above, we can conclude that skunks are Hittite-Amorite in their nature. They are a "miniaturized" version of the Amorite-Hittite bear. Unlike the bear, however, the skunk's ability to intimidate is not based on its "admirable strength" but rather on its loathsome repulsiveness.
In her prophetic word, sister Lauretta declares that she saw a skunk over the face and head of a televangelist that appeared on a local San Diego cable station. The skunk over the face is a figure of a Hittite mask of deceit. As we have said before, Hittites are stealth operators who conceal themselves to attack from the dark. Interestingly enough, the name "Diego" is associated in popular culture with the fictional character "don Diego de la Vega", who lived in Spanish California and would disguise himself as "Zorro", the masked man. What is even more "coincidental" is the fact that one of the words used in Latin American Spanish for "skunk" is "zorrillo", which is a diminutive form of the word "zorro".
San Diego is a southern California city right next to the border with Mexico. Therefore, it represents the infiltration of Latin American influence into America. As we have shared before, America's Gedaliah-style indifference to the spiritual damage caused by illegal Latin American immigration was a major ingredient in America missing out on God's visitation, and it is a spiritual (and literal) door for Hittite (terrorist) attacks from Ishmael into America (Jeremiah 40-41). Spiritual "zorrillos" are crossing the literal and spiritual border into America, yet America seems not to care.
Sister Lauretta also says that she saw a skunk over the head of the televangelist. In Scripture, the "head" speaks of rule and authority, and is most directly related to the evangelistic ministry, since evangelists are conquerors who overthrow Amorite heads and expand the Headship of God on Earth. In a negative sense, however, the "head" speaks of Amorites who have exalted themselves as kings over others. Therefore, the skunk over the televangelist's head represents the Amorite influence that has tainted his evangelistic ministry. As we have said before, evangelists turn into Amorites when they go bad. They become Amorite fornicators who conquer souls unto themselves, not unto God. Thus, we can see both the Hittite and Amorite influences being represented in the skunk shown to sister Lauretta, which correlates with the Hittite-Amorite nature of skunks.
The Spanish word "zorro" literally means "fox", a word which the Lord derisively uses to refer to king Herod (Luke 13:32). And, as we have seen before, the name "Herod" is spiritually associated with the Amorite spirit. This emphasizes the connection between the Amorite spirit and skunks, and it reveals the spiritual connection between Latin America and the skunk spirit in America.
It is worth noting that Osama bin Laden is a Hittite-Amorite, which means that he is a spiritual skunk. He is obviously a Hittite, due to his surreptitious terrorist activities, and he is an Amorite, as shown by the fact that his name is well known all around the globe. His Amorite nature is even revealed in his physical tallness, which correlates with the "giant" nature of Amorites. Therefore, the fact that the skunk was seen by a sister in San Diego emphasizes the fact that "Latin American California" is a spiritual door for "zorrillo" terrorist attacks into America.
The fact that the televangelist was appearing on a local cable station in San Diego County (as opposed to a national or international station) emphasizes the "declining" nature of skunks. As we said above, skunks are bears that have been "shrunken down to size" but who continue to defiantly stamp their feet with their short legs, claiming that they still have not been beaten, even when the stench of their intimidation and the irrelevance of their kingship have been made evident to all the people who have a bit of common sense. Therefore, we can say that Saddam Hussein is also a spiritual skunk. No wonder he was known for his use of deadly chemical weapons, which correlates with the skunk's "chemical" attacks. It is no wonder, either, that one of Hussein's most famous sidekicks was known as "Chemical Ali".
There is much more to say regarding the 5 animals in sister Lauretta's prophetic word. God willing, we will do so in a future posting...
