Dream Christmas Night
I dreamed I was at an aquatic amusement park with 2 little kids. We were in a cement kiddie pool. It had huge walls and stairs that led to a balcony where people could watch and overlook their kids.
I was in the water with a little boy and a little
girl. I do not know who they were. They were having a blast. They wanted me to
have fun too. The next thing I know, I was looking down in the water (which was
crystal clear), and there was a large turtle. I told the little girl to try and
ride its back. Then, I heard this thunder sound; it reminded me of a stampede.
When I looked down there were masses of what I thought were just fish coming
through. But, when I got a closer look, there were dolphins and seals too. And
they were all black. But all were the exact same size as the fish. I say
"[coming] through" because it seemed to me they were coming from the west and
headed east. The fish did not acknowledge anyone in the water. They were moving
fast. I moved over to the side to get out of the way and was amazed at what I
saw. As I was watching the fish, I noticed about 5 tiny whales were in the midst
of the fish, but they had stopped and were treading water, with their heads
above the water. I knew they were small because their heads were the size of
Suddenly, it began to rain. And everyone was trying to get out of the rain. My sister-in-law, Twila, had been standing on the balcony the whole time. She was telling me to hurry and get out of the rain. When she left the balcony, a flock of birds came and sat on the rail of the balcony. The birds looked like vultures. However, they were not scary at all. They had long white necks and brown bodies. We just stood there in awe and watched them.
The pool in the dream was a well-built cement pool with huge walls, and it contained crystal-clear water. This means that the pool was built by God in the sturdiness of righteousness. It was definitely not an unrighteous pool built and filled by carnal man. As we have said before, teachers are like "lakes" that contain and distribute the waters of apostolic wisdom from God. Therefore, the pool speaks of God's teachings, and the crystal-clear water speaks of the pure teachings which God is pouring down upon His people in these latter days. These teachings are being imparted by God through His red-horse teacher-apostles who have come to challenge and dismantle the paradigms of man in order to establish the paradigms of God.
The fact that the pool appears as a "kiddie pool" in the dream refers to the current state of the Church, in which most believers remain as "spiritual lads", without ever maturing. The balcony and the overlooking parents represent the pastoral matriarchy, which treats the Church as a day-care center. As we have said before, the pastoral ministry is one of "overseeing", and, when the pastoral ministry dominates, it tends to patronize believers, nurturing them in a "motherly" way, but never expecting much from them. Any believer's manifestation of God's Spirit nature that may question the pastors' earthly and soulish ways is immediately labeled by them as a "temper tantrum" or an "unresolved emotion in the poor baby's little soul". Believers are then pressured into handing over the anointing on their lives. As long as they "behave nice" and "play nice", they can rest assured that they will get their quota of "pastoral mothering". By contrast, any attempt on their part at manifesting spiritual authority over the soul's rule is promptly recompensed with a vengeful Canaanite attack by "momma pastor".
When the Church becomes a day-care center, the main question becomes "How do we entertain the lads?". This is when the Church turns into an "amusement park" where the focus is on "entertaining the crowd". This is the reason why the kiddie pool was in an "aquatic amusement park". As the focus shifts towards "entertaining the kids" and "keeping them busy", the focus drifts away from teaching believers and enabling them to become the spiritual giants God has ordained them to be. This is the reason why the red-horse teachings that God is currently pouring over His Church (Deuteronomy 32:1-6) have been either ignored or misused for idleness purposes. The pool, which God intended as an "Olympic training pool", has therefore been converted into an amusement center where people are entertained with meaningless activities that lead to no true spiritual growth. The pool, built by God through His red-horse riders, has, therefore, "gone to waste", in a sense.
The little boy and the little girl represent the "male" and "female" ministry anointings, which remain immature and undeveloped within the Church. In the matriarchal Church, believers continue to "jump into the pool" of salvation, but most are simply not travailing to complete their salvation process.
The large turtle speaks of the bureaucratic, non-proactive Church that is delaying God's purposes because of its negligence towards God's spiritual call that is presently in the air. The American turtle Church contrasts with what the Lord declares in the following passage:
"7Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, 8I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. 9Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be. 10And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. 11And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest. 12Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years? 13And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words. 14So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. 15And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. 16Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. 17Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem." (Zechariah 1:7-17)
Notice that Zechariah saw the red-horse rider standing among the myrtle trees by "night" (v8), which is a figure of the darkness the Church is currently in. Since nighttime is "sleeping time", it refers to a Church that remains dormant and negligent when it should be watching like a sentinel, discerning the moves of God in the spirit realm. Just as Zechariah saw the red-horse rider at night, God's remnant has also discerned the red horse of God in operation. While the Church continues to believe that the Church must remain under its current paradigms until the "coming of the Lord", God's remnant knows that the red horse of pestilent conflict must come to stir things up in the middle of the night, just as John the Baptist stirred up Jerusalem before the public manifestation of Yeshua in Israel.
Notice that the Lord sent horses to go "to and fro through the Earth" (v10), and notice that the horses' judgment report upon returning from their inspection was "All the Earth sits still, and is at rest" (v11). This means that the Earth is going on with "business as usual" because the Earth's assigned catalyst --- the Church --- continues to slothfully turn on her bed, without realizing that there is work to do in the spirit realm. The red horse came, and the Church (especially the American Church) dismissed him, because the Church was more interested in "peace and quiet" than in doing God's will. It is hard to sleep without "peace and quiet". It is hard to sleep when there is a pregnant sense of urgency weighing on your heart (Isaiah 62:1-3).
[This means that negligent people are like people who have a kairos door of opportunity before them, but who stand at the door, opening it and closing it repeatedly, without ever crossing the threshold and doing what they are called to do.]
Notice that, in the Zechariah passage quoted above, the angel of the Lord's response, upon hearing that the Earth "sits still and is at rest", was not, "That's good!! That's what we wanted after all!! Some good old-fashioned peace and harmony!!". Instead, His reply is, "O, Lord of hosts, how long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and the cities of Judah?" (Zechariah 1:12). Notice that the angel of the Lord did not say, "Oh, Lord of love and compassion". Instead, He uses the phrase "Lord of hosts", which refers to God as a man of war (Exodus 15:3). In other words, the angel of the Lord was calling for God to stir the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth into conflict so that Jerusalem and the cities of Judah (i.e.- the Church and the world) would be restored.
In verse 14, the Lord replies, "I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy". Jealousy is by no means a "passive" emotion. Instead, it speaks of a fervent zeal that will not be denied until revenge is consummated:
"That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified" (1 Thessalonians 4:6)
"34For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. 35He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts." (Proverbs 6:34-35)
The phrase "Jerusalem and Zion" in Zechariah 1:14 refers to God's remnant. His wrath is stirred against those who have mistreated His people beyond the allotted time. That is why the Lord of hosts says that He is angry at the "heathen" (i.e.- "nations", in the Hebrew text) that have mistreated His people, and who have "helped forward the affliction" (v15). This means that the time for the Church's restoration had come, yet the unrighteous continued tormenting and repressing God's people beyond the assigned time of their affliction, thereby delaying God's purposes on Earth. The Church has gone through a dark period, a "Dark Middleman Ages" period, but, now the time has come for the Church to shine, and that shining begins through the manifestation of God's remnant. The time has come for the remnant to be enabled, so that the remnant may in turn enable all of its brethren, just as Joseph did with his brethren, and just as Yeshua wants to do with His brethren. The rise of the remnant will not cause the remnant to rise as an "Amorite king" over God's people, because the remnant is not interested in self-glorification. Those who truly belong to the remnant are aware of the God-potential in every believer, and they long to see that potential manifested.
However, the unrighteous principalities, especially those ruling inside the Church, do not want this to happen. And now that the time has come for the remnant to rise and shine, they continue to hold the remnant in affliction and chains, repressing them and killing them, like Pharaoh with the firstborn of Israel. The wrath of God has therefore been stirred, and, His wrath cannot be quelled with external gifts (Proverbs 6:35). You cannot "kill" His remnant and then turn around and perform religious activities "in His name", pretending as if God will simply "forgive and forget". As we have seen before, God has clearly declared throughout Scripture (both Old and New Testament) that there can be no forgiveness without repentance (the simplistic "forgive-and-forget" doctrine is an MMM --- a menstrual matriarchal myth). Therefore, those who have rejected and killed His remnant shall face the jealous wrath of God, which comes to extract the life inside that the half-hearted Church has refused to give to Him. Those who willingly shed their inner life shall be blessed. Those who have to have that inner life wrested away from them shall not be blessed, and those who oppose the manifestation of the ones who do shed their inner life shall be utterly cursed by God.
Notice that Zechariah 1:15 (quoted above) declares that God is angry at the nations who are "at ease". This means that God's wrath is stirred against the "turtle-like" Big-Easy passivity that is hindering His purposes on Earth. His heart is stirred against those who cautiously "drag their feet" like the turtle; by contrast, He is pleased with those who stand among the myrtle trees, those who have discerned the need for the red horse of conflict, those who cry out,
"How much longer, oh God of Israel, shall the Earth remain without beholding Your Glory? How much longer, oh God of Israel, will Your righteous continue to be slain and tormented by an unrighteous soul matriarchy that refuses to surrender control of the Earth? How much longer will we wait, oh God of Israel, to behold the Sun of Righteousness ruling over the skies of the Earth, filling Your Earth with Your judgments and Glory? How much longer? How much longer?"
To this cry, the Lord replies:
Those who cry out in like manner, says the Lord, shall be consoled. I shall comfort Zion, says the Lord, and they shall see My victory over their enemies. For the poor who are uncontrollably inconsolable on account of the current state of things shall see the rewards of their labor. Those who have been driven to the wilderness of scarcity shall abound in green plenty. I, the Lord, have spoken, and so it shall be done.
"14And they found written in the law which the LORD had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month: 15And that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written. 16So the people went forth, and brought them, and made themselves booths, every one upon the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the water gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim. 17And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so. And there was very great gladness. 18Also day by day, from the first day unto the last day, he read in the book of the law of God. And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according unto the manner." (Nehemiah 8:14-18)
Notice that myrtle branches here are related to the Feast of Sukkoth (the Feast of Tabernacles), which was the 7th Feast (Leviticus 23:39-43). As we have said before, this feast speaks of a chosen people who have been taken out of man-made structures in order to dwell under coverings that seem "informal" and "improper" to Girgashite man, but which are the only coverings under which God's Uncontainable Glory will dwell. Therefore, the myrtle tree symbolizes inconformity with the structures of man, even despite their pyramid-like "hugeness" because, just like the pyramids, such structures are good for nothing more than housing the non-resurrecting dead.
"4Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in: 5For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another. 6Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?" (1 Chronicles 17:4-6)
[As shown by Zechariah 11:1-17, the "cedars" here are a figure of the Amorite shepherds (i.e.- pastors) who have lorded themselves over God's people. At no point has God commanded us to build Him a house around the pastoral ministry, a house in which pastors stand as tall cedars that impose themselves over the rest of God's people. Cursed be those who declare that such is the house in which God must abide!!!]
For a brief period of time, during and shortly after the days of Yeshua on Earth, the people of God began to walk in the freedom of the New Covenant. In other words, the "Feast of Tabernacles" was celebrated in the early years of the Church. According to Nehemiah 8:17, the Feast of Tabernacles shall be celebrated again, and there shall be great gladness. But for that to happen, the "myrtle people" had to come first. They are already here, and they have come to wage war against the "turtle people", for the time of Christ's full manifestation has come.
According to wikipedia.org, Greek mythology held that myrtle was sacred to Aphrodite. Interestingly enough, "Aphrodite" was one of the 3 names used by the Greeks to refer to Venus. As we have said before, legends and myths are often distortions of realities in the spirit realm. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the Greeks related the myrtle tree with Venus, for the "myrtle people" are God's revolutionary "Venus messengers" who are paving the way for the rising of God's Sun over all the Earth. As we have said before, God's "Venus messengers" have come to forge a transition from the restful "7" to resurrection "8". The turtle people are the believers who have a sincere interest in God's will being done. They know something is wrong with the current structures of the Church, but they are always reluctant to do anything "too drastic". When they push the door and find it hard to open, they desist, and they restfully declare, "It shall be done in the time of the Lord". These believers don't understand that the kingdom of God must be forged in spiritual violence (Matthew 11:12, Psalm 115:16); there is no way around it. If the door will not budge with a nudge, you must slam with a battering ram!!! To sit idly by the door and piously say, "Well, I guess it will be in God's timing" only delays God's latter-day plans, and it augments the already-heavy burden upon the shoulders of the faithful few who are slamming against the stubborn door. The time is now, and God has already shouted, "Push!!!", because the time for childbirth is at hand!!! The final push from restful "7" to resurrection "8" is at hand!!!
Esther's Hebrew name was "Hadassah" (Esther 2:7), which is derived from the Hebrew word for "myrtle" (hadas, mentioned above). Therefore, this shows how the "myrtle people" have come to pay the price that will end the matriarchal soul rule of Vashti. When the king told Vashti to present herself before him, Vashti replied, "It's my party, and I'll go when I want to, go when I want to, go when I want to ... I will want to when it's easy for me" (Esther 1:9-12). Instead of responding with a sense of urgency upon the king's call, Vashti responded with passive indifference. When Esther's time came to present herself before the king, there was no turtle "foot-dragging" in myrtle Esther. Instead, she promptly appeared before him, without making any soulish, time-delaying demands, and she found grace in his eyes:
"15Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her. 16So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. 17And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti." (Esther 2:15-17)
[The name "Hegai" (v15) literally means "eunuch". Therefore, the Lord is declaring that the spiritual Esther's are men and women who are willing to endure the limitations of a spiritual eunuch so that God's purposes may be furthered on Earth (Matthew 19:11-12).
Notice that Esther appeared before the king on the "10th month" (v16). This points to the spiritual tithe that God's "Venus messengers" are willing to pay in order to break the rule of "matriarchal Vashti" on Earth. That "tithe" involves giving unto God the "10th gift", which is our very lives.]
Esther appeared before the king on the month of Tebeth, which corresponds to either December or January in our modern calendar. Therefore, it is no coincidence that sister Mona had this dream on xmas night, since xmas is in late December. The time "xmas night 2005" points to God's indictment against the American Church's indifference during xmas season 2005. While a remnant was being "murdered", the Church was going about its xmas business, without realizing that God was removing the Ark of the Covenant from the "land of Thomas", clearing the stage for His harsh judgments against America. The order for the Ark's removal came on December 23, 2005. As the myrtle remnant shouted, "Help! May Day! We are being murdered!", the well-meaning but half-committed American turtle slowly replied, "I will help you ... in God's timing; in the meantime, hang on and be brave ... if it is God's will, things will work out".
In the dream, sister Mona heard a thunder sound, which reminded her of a stampede. This thunder sound is a figure of the "spiritual sonic boom" caused by "Venus messengers" as they cross the "sound barrier". As we have studied before, this happens as we begin to move in the red- and black-horse anointings. This thunder signifies the furious gallop of the horses of the Apocalypse, a thunder which starts in the spirit realm with the white horse and becomes audible to the natural ear as the red and black horses begin to gallop. The red horse makes the thunder audible at the small, "local" level, and the black horse makes it audible at a wide-scale level as it "clandestinely" broadcasts the thunder over the public airwaves.
"1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer." (Revelation 6:1-2)
"1In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel. 2In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion. 3There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah." (Psalm 76:1-3)
[Notice how this passage speaks of God's Name being known, which refers to the thunder of His Name. Zion was the name of the Temple mount, which was in Jerusalem (i.e.- Salem), which, in turn, was part of the region of Judah, which, in turn, was part of the land of Israel. In a sense, Zion is "Manhattan", Salem is "New York City", Judah is "New York state", and Israel is "the United States". Another way of seeing it is Zion as "London", Salem as "England", Judah as "the United Kingdom", and Israel as "Europe".]
Sister Mona then saw a stampede of black dolphins, seals, and fish. The color "black" points to their anonymity. This is emphasized by the fact that sister Mona had to look down through the water's surface to see them. The color "black" also speaks of the black-horse anointing on them.
The dolphins, in this context, speak of the apostolic anointing. Why? Because dolphins are known for their high "intelligence" or "ability to reason", which points to apostolic wisdom. Dolphins are also known for their playful creativity, which means that they are also a figure of the prophetic endowment. In a sense, it can be said that dolphins are apostolic-prophetic in nature.
On the other hand, seals are a figure of the prophetic anointing. Why? Because the prophetic anointing is associated with oil, which, in turns, points to "fat" because of its "gooey thickness"; when you come under a heavy anointing, you can perceive its "gooey thickness" enveloping you (the Hebrew word for oil, shemen, is derived from the word shaman meaning "to show fatness"). Seals are animals with a high fat content. For example, the earless seal is known to feed its pups with extremely thick, fat-rich milk (according to wikipedia.org). The mother seals provide this milk, even as they are forcibly fasting because of the great distance between their feeding and breeding grounds. This reveals the prophetic sacrificial nature of the seal. Through their fat-rich milk, seals are able to transfer large amounts of energy to their pups in a very short amount of time. This fast impartation of energy also correlates with the prophetic anointing, since the prophetic ministry is the one most directly related to spiritual impartation. The mother seal's forcible fasting points to the apostolic ministry, since apostles are "spiritual fasters". Thus, it can be said that seals are prophetic-apostolic in nature.
As we have said before, black-horse riders are apostle-prophets. Therefore, we can say from the above that the black dolphins and seals are a figure of God's black horse of the Apocalypse. Both dolphins and seals are mammals who are comfortable swimming underwater. This means that, even though they breathe oxygen like surface creatures, they operate most of the time below the water's surface, out of sight to natural man. This correlates with the invisible nature of the black horse's operations. The effects of black-horse judgments are visible to man, but the source of those judgments remains hidden to him. When sister Mona saw the stampede, she only saw "fish" at first. It was only upon a "closer look" that she noticed the black dolphin and seals amidst the stampeding fish.
The fact that the dolphin and the seals were the same size as the fish emphasizes their willingness to go "unperceived". Black-horse riders are not out to aggrandize themselves over their brethren. Instead, they are willing to sell the covering and recognition of man in order to acquire a sword that unleashes massive visible damage even though that sword is not visible to the natural eye (Luke 22:35-38).
While the dolphin and seals point to the black horse of the Apocalypse, the fish are a prophetic prelude to the supernatural "fish harvest" of John 21:9-11, which, as we have seen before, shall be manifested after God's green-horse riders resurrect out of Sheol. Therefore, the rushing dolphins, seals, and fish are a figure of remnant believers making the final transition from the black-horse stage to the green-horse stage. In a sense, these creatures are stampeding to their green-horse death.
In a literal sense, the masses' move from west to east speaks of God's spiritual shift away from America and towards Europe (you must travel eastward to go from America to Europe). In a spiritual sense, it speaks of God's green-horse riders figuratively returning from the "western wilderness" to die in Jerusalem, just as the Lord Jesus did (Hebrews 13:10-13). As they do, they are heading for the "sun", because they are heading for "resurrection" after death, rising like the sun in the east after the black darkness of night. After that, they shall go from "east to west", like the sun, conquering the Earth unto God.
The masses' aggressive stampede eastward speaks of God's angry frustration at the turtle-like American Church, which dragged her feet when she was supposed to move proactively to enable the manifestation of His remnant spirit on Earth. The masses' non-interest in acknowledging anyone in the pool points to the remnant's "ministerial irreverence" and to how the remnant shares in God's frustration over a Church that is happy to go nowhere fast. The remnant knows that time is incessantly ticking by and that there is no time for D.C. ("Diplomatic Correctness").
After sister Mona got out of the way of the stampede, she saw 5 tiny whales in the midst of the fish. These whales, however, had stopped and were treading water, with their heads above the water. As we have said before, the number "5" points to ministerial grace. Therefore, the 5 tiny whales represent the American Church's "great" ministers who have been "shrunken down to size" after God's black-horse judgments. Many of these ministers were part of God's spiritual revolution. They were perceiving that something new was in the air (Isaiah 43:18-19), but, somewhere along the way, their souls subconsciously began to perceive that, if they followed through with the things they were moving in, they would lose their "privileged" status over the rest of God's people, because they would be destroying the separation between "ministers" and "regular folks". In the middle between "38" and "40", they stopped, just like the 5 tiny whales. They chose not to be part of this crazy "underwater" (i.e.- invisible) stampede anymore, and they chose to rise to the water's surface, to the realm of the visible and the natural where they could once again stand out and be revered, because they valued their human visibility more than God's invisible purposes. They chose to separate themselves from the rest of the creatures (the dolphins, seals, and fish), because they were not about to be part of a movement where they would have to accept that they were worth the same as all the rest. They were not about to contribute to a movement where they would not be in control and where they would not come out at the end as the "shining champions" over God's people. They, therefore, ended up betraying the remnant spirit they were once a part of, and they became part of the "Tyre treason" against the remnant.
Sister Mona had this dream 26 sunrises before the whale appeared in London. As we have said before, the number "26" speaks of God's 2-witness believers who rebel against the structures of man in order to enable the manifestation of God on Earth. As America's "kiddie-pool" whales were "maxing and relaxing", the London whale was living out his death experience. As we said before, the London whale was imbued with a 2-witness anointing. By contrast, America's "kiddie-pool" whales handed over their 2-witness anointing. They became conformant with the spiritual stagnation of the Church, and they chose to stick their "ministerial heads" above the prophetic teaching of God (i.e.- the pool's water), as if to say, "No matter what God may teach or say, we are still the heads of the Church, and no one will convince us otherwise. We will stay here. We have no interest in heading all the way east to face our deaths.". In a figurative (and even a literal) sense, these whales chose to hide in the "middle" of the American country, in the safety of America's conservative "Heartland" and "Bible Belt". They chose not to head all the way "east" to liberal "New York" and "New England" where they would be forced to relinquish their notoriety as "revered ministers" because such liberal places do not put "ministers" up in a pedestal. Had they traveled east, however, they would have seen how God would have used them to turn "New York" and "New England" into mighty spiritual ports from which God's glory would have crossed the Atlantic and impacted Europe and the entire planet. However, since they hunkered down in their cautious little bunker, America's kiddie-pool whales relegated themselves to spiritual oblivion. Their earthly ministerial notoriety shall be their reward (Matthew 6: 5-6, Jeremiah 23:33-40).
The 5 whales' "softball" heads represent the weakened ("head") authority of the Church's ministers. The "softball" heads also represent the American whales' incompetence in making judgments with their spiritual "brains". After the Church's "ministers" were swamped by the wave of God's black-horse judgments, they were turned into self-deceived Korah's who were willing to twist their judgments in order to convince themselves that they were on the right track.
Sister Mona's prophetic reference to "softballs" also points to these 5 whales' "take-it-easy" attitude. Instead of challenging the current spiritual structures with aggressive, "hardball" questions, they stuck with "softball" questions so as to not go deep enough and rattle the foundations they so much depended on.
As I was writing the paragraph about "softballs" above, the Lord began to impress the 1973 song "Killing me softly" by Roberta Flack in my heart. At first, I thought it was just a "coincidence", but the Spirit's insistence became so strong that I understood that it was the Lord saying, "Add the lyrics". I have heard that song many times, and, most of the time, I get goose bumps when I hear it (I am getting them now). But, as I proceeded to retrieve the lyrics, I was stunned at many of the words in that song that I had so casually heard before.
[Lyrics adapted from lirama.net]
Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was, this young boy
I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on
He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn't there
But he just came to singing
Singing clear and strong
ohhhh... ohhhh... lalalala... ohhhh... lalaaaa....
Just like the singer, the 5-whale ministers in America came to hear the remnant's song. It was a nice song at first (Ezekiel 33:30-33), but, as the song progressed, it got a little too personal, a little too close for comfort. The 5-whale ministers began to understand that the remnant song they were hearing was actually killing them, little by little, line by line, word by word. As they realized that they were dying, they became scared. They wanted the remnant spirit to stop singing, but "he just kept right on", and that's when they pulled the plug on the radio receiver. The song was just too hard to handle. "Could there actually be something wrong with me? I thought the song was about the death of somebody else, not about my death!!" They suddenly realized that the whole stampede was headed for certain death (to self), and they chose to cling to their natural life, halfway between selfish life and selfless death. By staying in no-man's land in the spiritual, they left the remnant stuck in no-man's land in the natural, and America's revival was inexorably delayed.
Fellow believer, our God is an awesome God!!! I have goose bumps all over me at this point! As I was reading through the lyrics above, I suddenly remembered that someone, in some "remote" e-mail in the past, had mentioned this song to us in passing. As I searched through the e-mails to find that "remote" e-mail, I was stunned to see that it was sent by a person who knows sister Mona; the email was sent the night of November 23, 2005, one month before the fateful December 23, 2005 date, and a mere 32 days before sister Mona had her dream (notice how the numbers "23" and "32" are inversions of each other).
This dream happened on xmas night 2005. As we said above, this was 26 sunrises before the whale appeared in London, which, as we have seen before, was a "green-horse" manifestation, a sign of Jonah. This dream also happened exactly one year after the South Asia tsunami, which happened on xmas night 2004, US time. As we have studied before, this tsunami was also a "green-horse" manifestation. This emphasizes the fact that the stampede that sister Mona saw was a figure of a transition from the black-horse stage to the green-horse stage. As we have said before, green-horse judgments are headed for America, judgments sealed by God's "silent" decree on December 23, 2005; xmas night 2005 was a deceivingly silent night in America. The silence that night was not one of peace but one of sadness. During November and early December 2005, God blessed America's northeast with surprisingly beautiful balmy weather. As xmas day approached, however, the weather suddenly turned cold and unfriendly. By xmas night, it was horrendously cold. On that bitterly cold night in America's northeast, the chilly air was reflecting the cold shoulder that God was giving to America, which was God's response to the cold shoulder that He Himself had received from a land more interested in "business as usual" than in seeing His Glory on Earth.
It is no coincidence that the Lord had us post 2 green-horse words on the same day (xmas 2005) that sister Mona had this dream: "Quake in America" and "Trumpet blasts". Without us knowing it, God's intention was to have those 2 words act as "2 witnesses" announcing green-horse judgment against an American Church that forsook its 2-witness calling, allowing the "bears" to eat up His green remnant (Revelation 11:7). Because America's sad silence on xmas night 2005, she shall hear loud trumpet blasts from the Lord of hosts, "... for the cup of My wrath is full, and I am about to pour it all upon you", says He.
After the stampede had gone through, it began to rain. The rain refers to the pelting of God's judgments against those who remain with Korah, even after God has revealed his shameful spiritual "baldness". This rain correlates with the rain of fiery coals that God showed to sister Maureen Miller in a dream. As the stampede swam on through America's "kiddie-pool", the transition from "black horse" to "green horse" was completed, and America entered into its green-horse stage. At this point, the covering over the head of America's leadership was fully removed, leaving it as a bald Korah. Now, anyone who sticks with the pseudo-covering of Korah is AGAG ("As Good As Gone"). Interestingly enough, the name "Agag" appears in Scripture, and it literally means "I will overtop" or "roof". Agag's roof is useless before the rain of God, because Agag has been cursed unto destruction, and no matter how much Agag and his crowd may think that the "worst is behind them", the "worst" is yet to come.
"17Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt; 18How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God. 19Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it." (Deuteronomy 25:17-19)
[Notice the cowardly attack by Amalek from behind, taking advantage of Israel's vulnerability. This betrays the spirit of Korah in Amalek, since, as we have seen before, Korah likes to attack the righteous when they are vulnerable and defenseless.
The name "Amalek" literally means "valley dweller", which points to its Canaanite-Girgashite nature. The word "valley" points to the Canaanite spirit, since "Canaan" means "lowlands", and the word "dweller" points to the Girgashite spirit, since "Girgashite" means "clay dweller". This reveals that the Korah spirit (evident in Amalek) is Canaanite-Girgashite. It is impelled by man's last-ditch effort to maintain the soul matriarchy, which is sustained by the matriarchal control of Canaanite pastors and Girgashite teachers.]
"14And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: 16For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation."( Exodus 17:14-16)
"32Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past. 33And Samuel said, As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal." (1 Samuel 15:32-33)
[As we have said before, bitterness in man's natural soul is produced by a resentment against the judgments of God. Therefore, when Agag thought that the "bitterness of death" was past (v32), he was expressing his Canaanite hatred of God's righteous judgments. Besides "valley dweller", another meaning for the name "Amalek" is "people of lapping", which emphasizes their Canaanite-dog nature. As we have seen before, Canaanites are cursed by God's remnant unto destruction. Therefore, Agag was "doomed from the get-go", whether he wanted to admit it or not.]
"7He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. 8God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. 9He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee." (Numbers 24:7-9)
[The reference to Israel's kingdom being "exalted" (v7) points to the name "Jehovah Nissi", which means "Jehovah is my Standard". God's "lowly judging serpents" are God's Standard on Earth (Numbers 21:6-9); they shall be exalted, and those attacked by Korah shall be vindicated before the eyes of all.
As we have said before, "lions" in Scripture are a figure of judgment. Therefore, the Lord is declaring in verse 9 that the Canaanites who hate judgments, and who therefore curse the "lion" believers who judge, shall in turn be cursed. The age of Canaanite judgment-abhorrence shall soon end, and God's judgments and Glory shall fill the Earth (Psalm 105:7, Habakkuk 2:12-17).]
Sister Mona says that it "suddenly" began to rain. This points to how God's green-horse judgments shall come suddenly, with no warning for the unwary. Agag did not expect the rain of "sword strikes" that fell upon him which led to his death (1 Samuel 15:32-33), yet that "rain" came, and there was nothing he could do about it, because the kairos door for changing the course of events had long come and gone.
As we have said before, God's green-horse riders are prophet-pastors. They are God's sentinels who have been willing to watch events from a "different perspective". Because they have gone through the red-horse and the black-horse stages, their understanding of events is different. It is spiritual, from above. Fellow believer, as you begin to move in the green-horse anointing, you will perceive things that others don't perceive; you will interpret things that others don't comprehend; and you will visualize things that others don't foresee. Why? Because, as you move in the green-horse anointing, you will eventually cross the "light barrier" and begin operating at a "resurrection" realm in which your spiritual authority transcends natural limitations of time and space. As a spirit being, you will "stand above the fray and commotion" of the natural realm, and you will act as a watchman who can see the big picture and visualize root causes hidden in the past along with consequences revealed in the future.
All of the above explains why sister Mona saw sister Twila in the balcony. She had been standing there the whole time, which speaks of a silent, "invisible", green-horse presence that stands above the limitations of the natural realm. Unlike the parents in the balcony, her presence there was not one of passive "pastoral" care. Instead, it represented the green-horse remnant acting as watchmen, as prophet-pastors in the Spirit. This is why sister Twila perceived the imminent danger in the rain, and urged sister Mona to leave as soon as possible. Sister Twila's urgent appeal speaks of the sense of urgency which God wants His people to have in these latter days. There is no time for turtle-like slowness and for whales stopping and treading water. Those who refuse to be imbued with a sense of spiritual urgency shall be wiped aside, out of God's way, for the time of His coming has come.
Sister Twila then left the balcony. This is a figure of God's green-horse riders hiding in "high towers of refuge" after their "death" and "descent to Sheol". While there, God's green-horse riders wait as God unleashes His vengeance upon the Church that killed them. This is the reason why vultures appeared after sister Twila left. Vultures appear wherever death looms. Therefore, vultures point to the death judgments left behind after God's remnant is killed. These vultures are the "green reapers" who come to devour the flesh of the kings and of all those who refused God's visitation. The time has come to devour the human kings' carcasses, which the Church refuses to remove. As the souls of God's green-horse riders abide in "high towers of refuge", their spirits are in the air, and they are being sent down by God to unleash the wrath of His vengeance upon those who do unrighteousness and upon those who are negligently indifferent to that unrighteousness (Revelation 19:11-21).
The fact that sister Mona did not see the vultures as scary means that their appearance shall be pleasant to those who are seeing them in the Spirit. To those who remain "in the soul" (on account of the soul matriarchy), the vultures will seem as horrific creatures of destruction from satan, because they will continue to believe that the God of justice and judgments died at Golgotha 2000 years ago.
"15For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ." (2 Corinthians 2:15-17)
[The words "savour" in this passage were translated from Greek words that have more a connotation of smell than of flavor. Another possible translation for "savour" would be "aroma".
The word "corrupt" in verse 17 was translated from the Greek verb kapeleuo, which literally means "to peddle, to make money selling something, to be a huckster". As we have said before, there is a strong spiritual connection between "merchants" and the Canaanite spirit. Aggressive "marketing" is also related to the evangelistic ministry, and, thus, to the Amorite spirit, due to their "conquering" nature. Therefore, the word kapeleuo has the connotation of someone operating under a strong Canaanite-Amorite influence, which points to the frog spirit.
The word "word" in verse 17 was translated from the Greek word logos, which, as we have seen before, speaks of God's judgments. Therefore, in verse 17, Paul is declaring that he is not willing to "fudge" the judgments of God in a Canaanite and Amorite way so as to please and win his audience over. This made him odious (a "savour of death unto death") to the Canaanite, judgment-hating public, and appreciated ("savour of life unto life") to those who were interested in seeking after God's kingdom and righteousness.]
The vultures had long white necks. The color "white" points to the white robes given to God's green-horse riders as they wait in their towers of refuge for the "restitution of all things" (Acts 3:20-21, Revelation 6:9-11). As we have said before, the color "white" speaks of "perfection" or "completion". When Jesus "gave up the ghost" at Golgotha, He said, "It is completed" (John 19:30). Therefore, the "white robes" represent the spiritual, eternal robes we are endowed with as we complete our "death journeys" in God. When we are willing to go to Sheol in Christ, we cross the light barrier, and we are clothed in the white light of God (1 John 1:5-7).
As we have studied before, white necks are a figure of believers who operate in the fullness of the 3 "male" ministry anointings: apostolic submission, an evangelistic warrior nature, and an uncovered prophetic spirit. In Scripture, the neck is tied to the ability to breathe and to the "breath of life" in us (Matthew 18:6, Luke 17:2), and that "breath" is associated with our spirit nature. In John 19:30, the wording used in the original Greek text to describe Jesus' death is "... and He handed over the spirit"; the word "spirit" is pneuma in Greek, which can also be translated as "wind", and is derived from the word pneo meaning "to breathe, blow". Therefore, the neck refers to our ability to retain the spirit nature within us. As we have studied before, Girgashites are people who drown their spiritual calling as they hoggishly hold on to their natural life. Prophets, on the other hand, are people willing to shed their natural life in order to retain their spiritual calling (their pneuma). When Yeshua sacrificially shed His life at Golgotha, He handed His pneuma over to God, and was therefore able to preserve His eternal calling.
The length of the vultures' necks is a figure of "eternity", since it speaks of a "long, long time". Therefore, we can say from all of the above that the vultures' long white necks speak of believers who did not drown as Girgashites, but who instead retained their pneuma calling for eternity (i.e.- eternal life) because they were willing to cross the light barrier and shed their lives in sacrifice, considering everything temporal as worthless in comparison to the manifestation of God's will and purposes on Earth. These are the believers who overcame the domination of the 2 "female" ministries and who were willing to move in the fullness of all 3 "male" ministry anointings. They offered their necks to God, saying to Him,
"Here is my neck, Lord, put your yoke on it and take me whithersoever You want me to go"
You overcome the soul matriarchy by allowing yourself to be overcome by God, and those who are willingly overcome by God shall overcome all things, and they shall place their feet on the necks of all the enemies who stubbornly fought against them.
As we have said before, the color "brown" speaks of green prophetic potential disguised in red earthly weakness. Therefore, the vulture's brown bodies are God's way of saying: "These resurrected ones are the brown weaklings which you dismissed at first". Fellow believer, as you go through green-horse Sheol experiences, you will begin to operate in a "deceiving" dual nature. Just as the Lord Jesus after resurrection, you will look normal enough to seem like the "gardener" (John 19:15), but you will at the same time be operating at a level that fully transcends any natural limitation (John 19:26). You will have a "brown body" with a long white neck that connects you directly to the Head, and the awesome God-nature will emanate from out of you and into the Earth. This is the reason why sister Mona "stood there in awe and watched" the vultures.
