Prophetic word for today

The blue prayer shawl (Part 1)

First posted: February 19, 2006

I was laying on the floor. I was wrapped in a prayer shawl. I could see the color blue on it, on squares. It was wrapped so tight I couldn't move.


 

Our comments

No A4 paper

On the morning of January 19, 2006, I woke up determined to send a package of important documents to the UK. Before I checked for incoming email, I asked the Lord to give me a spiritual confirmation on what I was about to do because, once I sent the package, I would be taking an irrevocable step in my life. The email containing the words above is what came in that morning, and, as I read them, it was immediate confirmation from the Lord that it was indeed He, not I, who was prompting me to send that package, and it was further confirmation of the spiritual shift towards Europe that we have shared about in recent postings.

 

I tried very hard to deliver the package that day, but, to my dismay, I learned that the largest city in America, a major hub of worldwide trade, could not help me to print a simple 14-page document on "A4" size paper, which is apparently common in Europe but not in America. This was a prophetic sign of how the Church in America is so immersed in the glory of her own religiosity that it is unable to perceive what God is planning to do in the "spiritually decayed" continent across the Ocean. Because of the unavailability of "A4" paper in New York (and the apathy and/or ignorance of several people in New York), I was forced to make fruitless expenses, and, after wasting several hours of my life, I was eventually forced to postpone the delivery of the package (which had to include the document I was unable to print). The Lord gave me an idea on how to get around the "A4" paper issue, which I was forced to implement on my own, without the help of any uncooperative New Yorker. I was eventually able to send the package the next morning, on January 20, 2006, the day the whale appeared in the River Thames.

 

The fact that I had to delay the package's delivery because of a lack of "A4" paper is a spiritual confirmation of the 4-year delay on America. In a spiritual sense, the letter "A" in "A4" stood for "Annum", the Latin word for "year". Because America is so fixated on herself, she is not looking towards Europe and the nations of the Earth. She has no interest in stocking up on "A4" European paper because she sees no purpose in sending anything to "dead" Europe; therefore, she has been sentenced to an "Annum-4" delay.

 

The American Church's disinterest over Europe is a result of her "disconnected state". The great "ministers" of America see the size of their temples and the size of their congregations as confirmation that they are indeed tuned in to the Lord's heart, without realizing that those things are nothing but "fig leaves" that hide a lack of supernatural fruit unto God (Mark 11:12-14).

 

On February 6, 2006, one day before we began typing this word, a very dear sister in Christ sent us an e-mail with a link to an article posted on cbn.com about the "state" of Christianity in Europe. As I read this article, my spirit was kindled with anger at America's stubborn insistence on gauging spiritual matters through external, religious parameters. The Lord prompted this dear sister in Christ to send us the CBN article link as a confirmation to us of how blind and self-righteous America's religious "leaders" are. These idiotic leaders fail to see the spiritual field that is ripe for harvest in Europe because they measure the acceptance of God by how their dead religious structures are accepted. To them, if Europe abhors their "Churchianity", it must abhor God. How lame and clueless these "leaders" are! No wonder God recently exposed CBN's "top honcho", Pat Robertson, as a man who is willing to backtrack from God-given convictions when a "temple" is on the line. As you may know, Pat Robertson declared that Ariel Sharon's brain hemorrhage was a judgment from God for having returned the Gaza Strip to the Palestinians. As public criticism mounted, and as the Israeli government threatened to disallow the construction of a temple because Robertson was one of the partners in the project, he cowardly backtracked from his initial comments (which were, by the way, from God). When he was banned from participating in the building of a temple, he saw it as a sign from God that he had said the wrong thing. It is sad when believers gauge the truthfulness of a statement based on the number of temples it allows them to build!

 

American Edom

Because they have deceived themselves with their own fig leaves, America's "ministers" are being exposed in the spirit realm as "bald Korahs", as soul-dominated "leaders" who have talked themselves into thinking that they are doing the right thing, despite the evidence and the signs sent by God against them. The "ministers" in America are behaving like a proud Edom deceived by his own external success:

 

"1The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle. 2Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised. 3The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? 4Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD. 5If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how art thou cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? if the grapegatherers came to thee, would they not leave some grapes? 6How are the things of Esau searched out! how are his hidden things sought up! 7All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee even to the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee, and prevailed against thee; they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee: there is none understanding in him. 8Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? 9And thy mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter." (Obadiah 1:1-9)

 

In a previous posting, we shared on how the passage above applied to Russia in August 2004, as Russia suffered through several terrorist attacks. Through several events that happened between January 28 and today, I am now understanding that God is declaring this passage against America as well, and, (without me realizing it until now), He has been declaring it against the "ministers" in America ever since August 2005. Fellow believer, it is truly disheartening for me to realize this, but as I read the passage above, it is becoming evident that is consistent with everything we have said about America since May 2005. Over the next 3-and-a-half years, the words in the passage will become painfully evident, and there will be no longer any doubt that they do indeed apply to the Church in America.

 

Because of the "Edomite" nature of America's Church "leaders", these "leaders" have been unable to hear what God is saying about Europe since May of last year. They compare the number of churchgoers in America with the number in Europe, and they say, "See? We are better than them!! There is no doubt that they are dead and we are alive. They need to be like us." God is not interested in replicating the American Church in Europe!!! The American Church is religious, tradition-based, and hierarchical. It is a pathetic Old Testament Church built after the Temple of Jerusalem that Herod restored. All the magnificent renovations done by Herod did nothing to change the spiritual condition of Israel. Israel remained as dead on the inside as it was when the Temple was physically deteriorated. In fact, it was better for Israel to have its Temple deteriorated, because it served as a physical mirror of their decayed spiritual condition. Herod's "restorations" only served as a "woven blanket" that hid the deterioration inside. The anger of the Lord is stirring up inside my heart as I am writing these words. I was not planning to write any of this, but it is God who is compelling me to declare these words into the spirit realm.

How stubborn you are, America, as stubborn as a goat!!! God shall chastise you, you stupid goat, so that you will finally understand Who the Master really is!!! It's I, says the Lord. I am the "Master", and cursed be the "ministers" who have claimed a title that belongs to Me and Me alone. For I have hidden Myself behind a veil to test you. I have hidden Myself in weakness and you do not recognize Me. Just as you do not recognize the anointing in My faithful few, you fail to recognize the potential across the Ocean! I came in weakness, and you saw Me not. I shall come in furious tidal strength, but there shall be no reward for you when you recognize Me then. You should have recognized Me the first time around.

 

As we have said before, America has turned into the "land of Thomas". Being on the brink of a major spiritual breakthrough, it doubted God and demanded more evidence before believing Him.

You shall be blessed America, but the blessing shall not be as great as it would have been had you believed Me without seeing, says the Lord. I shall hide Myself from you for a season, and I shall show you who I am as I hide Myself. You shall then know who I really am and what I came for. You shall see Me inside and out, and your spirit will give you witness of what I am talking about.

 

The blue kingdom

Due to a dream that the Lord gave to me 439 days ago (from the date of this writing -- February 7, 2006), and due to recent events, the Lord made me understand that the color "blue" pointed to the United Kingdom. This is the reason why the "blue prayer shawl" in the dream/vision spoke to me so clearly about the UK when I read it for the first time. For a few days, however, I struggled to understand why the color blue was on squares. As I asked the Lord, He said to me,

"A square has 4 sides, and the square represents the union of 4 different things"

I then understood that the 4 sides of the square represented the 4 countries that are part of the UK, and each country represents each of the 4 horses of the Apocalypse:

 

Country Horse Explanation
England White The white horse is the spiritual umbrella for the other 3 horses. In the same way, England serves as the foundational umbrella for the other 3 countries. England's flag is mostly white.
Wales Red Red-horse riders are "small" and "weak" in external appearance, which correlates with Wales' geographical smallness.
Scotland Black Black-horse riders are apostle-prophets. This correlates with the apostolic discipline and the prophetic (poetic) creativity of the Scottish people. Black-horse riders are lonely "wanderers" in the "independent" wilderness, which correlates with the "independent streak" in Scottish history and culture.
N. Ireland Green Green-horse riders are prophet-pastors, which correlates with the prophetic (poetic) and "shepherding" nature of the Irish people. Much of the island of Ireland is rich green grassland.

 

Each of the 4 horses of the Apocalypse in Revelation 6:1-8 is "introduced" by each of the 4 "living creatures" who represent the 4 spiritual faces (Revelation 4:7). This means that the 4 horses and the 4 spiritual faces are spiritually connected:

  1. The white horse is a conquering horse. Therefore, it is related to the evangelistic ministry, which is in turn related to the "Ox Face".

  2. The red horse is a "weak" horse, which correlates with the weak "Man Face", which is in turn related to the "female" ministries of pastor and teacher.

  3. The black horse is a horse of invisible judgments launched from the wilderness, meaning that it can be mapped to the Lion Face of apostolic judgments.

  4. The green horse is a horse of resurrected prophets, which means that it is related to the "Eagle Face", which is in turn related to the prophetic ministry.

 

Therefore, each of the 4 countries in the UK can be mapped to the 4 spiritual faces of God:

 

Country Horse Face Ministry
England White Ox Evangelist
Wales Red Man Teacher & pastor
Scotland Black Lion Apostle
N. Ireland Green Eagle Prophet

 

According to Ezekiel 1:10, the 4 living creatures had 4 faces each. Each creature had the Lion Face on the right and the Ox Face on the left. If we drew the 4 faces on a square, it would make spiritual sense to place the Eagle Face at the top and the Man Face at the bottom, since eagles are flying birds, while men are walking mammals. This would lead to the following face arrangement:

 

Notice that the 4 horses of the Apocalypse appear in a counterclockwise order around this square. First, the Ox-Faced white horse appears, followed by the Man-Faced red horse, followed by the Lion-Faced black horse, followed by the Eagle-Faced green horse. There is a spiritual reason why the square is traversed in a counterclockwise order: the 4 horses of the Apocalypse come against the natural flow of chronos time so that the flow of kairos time may be reinstalled. They come to revert the domination of temporal chronos time so that eternal kairos time may "tick" again. They come to end the law of entropy that rules over creation so that the law of the Spirit of life may be manifested (Romans 8:1-23). In short, the horses of the Apocalypse come to "end" chronos time. They come to end this "generation" (genos in Greek --- Matthew 24:32-34), i.e.- this soul-dominated age on Earth.

 

While the squares speak of union, the color blue per se speaks of "kingdom". Why? Because spiritual kingdoms are established in the spiritual atmosphere, and the literal atmosphere of the Earth is "blue" in color. Therefore, the phrase "blue squares" can be translated as "united kingdom".

 

As we have said before, true unity is forged through apostolic judgments. The United Kingdom has remained "united" for centuries because of the strong apostolic impartation of the British people. The UK has also shown itself to have a strong evangelistic impartation, as shown by the fact that the British empire, at its greatest height, was the largest and widest empire in the history of mankind.

 

As we have said before, there is a strong spiritual connection between "angels" and the apostolic ministry, since "angels" are agents of judgment. As we have also said before, angels are "invulnerable" beings who manifest a rock-strong spirit nature, which means that they are also connected to the strong-willed evangelistic ministry. Therefore, any place with a strong apostolic and evangelistic impartation will inevitably have a strong "angelical" visitation, which means that "Jacob's ladder" shall be established there (Genesis 28:12). The UK --- the land of the apostolic-evangelistic "blue squares" --- is a "Nathanael", and Nathanael shall see the blue heaven open, and angels of God ascending and descending upon the "son of man", i.e.- upon the weak believers who believe in an "open-heaven", direct relationship with God (John 1:47-51).

 

The "439" carcass removal

As we mentioned at the top of the previous section, the Lord prompted me to relate the color "blue" to the UK through a dream I had had 439 days earlier. I felt that the Lord was telling me, "I am trying to say something to you through the number 439", and He immediately impressed "Ezekiel 43:9" on my heart. After typing the paragraphs above, I went out for a walk, and the Lord told me to walk down a side of the street I usually do not walk on, and, as I did, I noticed this street sign that simply said "439" in big numbers. I had walked past that large sign on several occasions, but I had never noticed it. When I saw it, the Lord said to me, "Do not behold 439 as an odd number, for I am trying to speak to My people through it." He was addressing my hesitancy to write about that number in this posting because, to be honest with you, the number simply seemed "odd" to me. My natural mind began to attribute it to "coincidence" or "random circumstance", but the Lord clearly made me see otherwise. This is what the Lord says in Ezekiel 43:9:

 

"Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever" (Ezekiel 43:9)

 

Through the number "439", therefore, the Lord is telling America to put away the carcasses of their kings. America's kings are the "ministers", the "leaders" of the American Church.

 

America has refused to put away its "ministers' carcasses" because it refuses to accept that it needs a total transformation of its Church structures. It not only wants to preserve those structures, it wants to export them to Europe and beyond, and it is stunned when Europe is reluctant to accept them. There is a remnant of people in Europe who abhor "religion", who abhor religious structures dominated by pastors who are out to aggrandize themselves instead of fulfilling God's purposes on Earth. This remnant of people in Europe perceives the hypocrisy of the pastoral matriarchy in the Church, and they are unwilling to follow God if it means submitting themselves to such a religious structure. Unfortunately, most of that remnant is still unable to distinguish between God and the whorish Church that claims to act "in His name", and that is the reason why that remnant remains in spiritual darkness. There is a great deal of precious bread floating adrift in the sea. There is a great deal of bread across the Ocean, but the whorish Church in America is blind to that bread, and it shall remain blind until they put away the carcasses of the "undead" leaders whom they insist on following.

 

As evidenced by Ezekiel 43:9, when the Church in America was told to choose between the presence of their kings' carcasses and the presence of God, they chose the carcasses. In a spiritual sense, this is what the American Church said to herself:

At least the carcasses are "here", "visible to the natural eye. I know they are lifeless, but, if I get rid of them, there is no guarantee that God will show up to replace them. What if God does not show up? What if we are left "headless"? We might as well hold on to these carcasses. At least, with them here we can say, "We have a head; we have a covering above us; we have a name to claim as our own; we are not a disorganized and scattered remnant". If we really do need to get rid of them, we will do so when God comes. I don't want to be left empty-handed!

 

However, the American Church did not understand that God would not manifest Himself in the fullness of His Glory unless the carcasses were removed. God told the American Church to "walk on water", to trust Him, to shed her human "heads" (Jeremiah 8:14) and to go after Him, after the one who stood on the water waiting for them. But the American Church chose to stay in the comfort of her measly boat, and she shall pay the consequences of her Thomas-like faithlessness. She kept asking God for more and more confirmations to make sure that it was indeed He who was standing on the water, calling her out from the boat. Eventually, the Lord got tired of her unceasing request for "confirmations", and He walked away.

 

The "439" forcible scattering

Just as He did with those in the Tower of Babel, the Lord came to halt the American Church's "construction job" and to scatter her like dust in order to reassemble her in His likeness. The Lord's wrath came and He spiritually "killed" the leaders in the American Church, but the American Church refused to "scatter". They remained in their castles, even when they could smell the decaying carcasses of their kings in the toilet room upstairs. They said, "We cannot leave this castle; where would we go then? We hear a voice outside, but we don't know who he is. Let's just stay put. Let's ask him for the umpteenth time who he is. He claims to be our real king. His voice sounds very familiar to our spirit; his voice sounds true and sincere,, but we are not 100% sure".

 

Just like the people of New Orleans who refused to leave their flooded homes even after Katrina hit, the American Church chose to "hunker down" with its carcasses in the summer of 2005. She refused to accept the Lord's scattering, and she therefore became useless in the expansion of God's Glory around the Earth. God cannot expand His Glory through a nation so caught up in its religious righteousness that it cannot see the spiritual potential of others. As he did with Nebuchadnezzar, He will strike America and its Church again and again in order to "scatter" her and get her out of her lunatic pride (Daniel 4:14).

 

God shall scatter and shake the pride of the proud American Rahab (Psalm 89:10-11), and He shall use His apostolic-evangelistic angels to do it, just as He did when He sent "angels" from Great Britain to conquer India, that proud Rahab in the east. In the same way, God shall send an anointing from the UK back towards America that will cast down Rahab, that monster that rages in the religious lakes of America, that monster that hindered the manifestation of God's Glory in the land of the eagle. If it weren't but for a faithful remnant in America, the U.S.'s spiritual calling would have gone down the drain in 2005 as Latin America's calling did in 2003.

 

As we have shared before, the stronghold of Edom in America lies in the American South, in the so-called "Bible Belt" that oozes with pride over its religiosity. This is the reason why the Lord sent Katrina and Rita against the Southern states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. That behemoth -- the American Rahab --- has built his wooden castles in America's Bible Belt and in the so-called "American Heartland", in religious states such as West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Missouri, states that are known for their high per-capita church density. Because Rahab --- that vicious man-eater --- has been tolerated (and supported) by believers in America, the Lord will continue to rain His fiery coals against the institutionalized American Church because of the way she treated His precious yellow flowers (Psalm 18:4). Instead of giving them a "Green Bay of refuge", she "uprooted" them by plucking them out of the precious ground where they had made their home, forcing them to wander once again like aimless ships set adrift. Because of all of this, He shall send fiery coals that shall cause Rahab's wooden houses to burn in America. This is the spiritual reason why God has allowed so many churches across Alabama to be literally burned down to the ground in recent days, months, and years. There is a spiritual reason why God has chosen Alabama (of all the states in the American South) to allow these church burnings. God willing, we will share on this in a later posting.

 

As God burns down Rahab's wooden castles, He shall also cause the land of Thomas to shake, because He has heard the distress of His remnant people, and He has heard their plea against Rahab's cruelty and unrighteousness (Psalm 18:6-7, Luke 18:3-8). God Himself shall be a Father to the fatherless mistreated by Rahab. He shall be generous to the poor but spiritually generous remnant people who were mistreated by His stingy enemies. He shall scatter the enemies who huddled together against Him, and He shall allow His yellow wax-like flowers to rest in spacious places:

 

"1Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. 2As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. 4Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. 5A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. 6God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. 7O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah: 8The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel. 9Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary. 10Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor. 11The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it. 12Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil. 13Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold. 14When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon." (Psalm 68:1-14)

 

The word "dove" in verse 13 above was translated from the Hebrew word yownah, the very same word used in Hebrew for the name "Jonah". When God sent "Jonah" in the form of a whale to visit London and the Thames, London treated him well. When God sent the spirit of Jonah to visit the Church in America, America's "kings" trampled on Jonah. The Rahab kings roared against God's remnant; therefore, they shall now be made to scatter (v14). The rebellious Church shall dwell in a "dry land" (v6) devoid of God's latter rain for a season until they admit the lunacy of their ways.

 

While the faithful remnant was willing to be scattered by God and made to wander like foreigners without a homeland (Psalm 44:11, Acts 8:1), the American Church "held on for dear life" to the source of her confidence, like a woman holding on to a pole as a hurricane raged on through. The storm passed, and she stubbornly said to herself, "I'm still alive, and I am right with God", even after most of her house had been blown away. God shall therefore come against America once again, and He shall shake her until she lets go of the pole of her confidence, the pole on which she continues to dance for her undead Amorite kings. The Lord will then wipe the pole clean and hoist a banner over that pole, a banner to exalt the judging serpents belittled by man (Psalm 60:1-5, Genesis 49:16-18, Numbers 21:6-9). The eyes of America will then be opened, and she shall see that "the earth and the fullness thereof" are indeed the Lord's (Psalm 89:11). She shall then see bread adrift in the sea, and she shall help gather it unto the Lord.

 

Regression

The first posting on this website where the Lord prompted us to quote from Ezekiel 43 is in a prophetic word entitled "Red Sox Win!", posted on October 29, 2004 (27 days before the "blue" dream mentioned above). In that word, the Lord prompted us to write the following (in the context of Ezekiel 43):

The number "1143" means that the U.S. reached verse 11 (the spiritual stage where the Church will recognize her shame). Therefore, the U.S. will be restored spiritually and America shall see the Glory of God in righteousness.

 

In other words, America in 2004 had reached verse 11 of Ezekiel 43, but, as we have been sharing since May 2005, and especially since late October and early November 2005, America had a "Shittim regression". As certified by the White Sox World Series victory in 2005 (exactly one year after the Red Sox win), America had a spiritual regression that cost it a 4-year delay. The Lord's emphasis of the number "439" and on Ezekiel 43:9, therefore, is His way of saying,

America had reached verse 11, but she has regressed to verse 9

This correlates with a dream we posted on December 16, 2004. America had acquired "11 pearls", but she was stolen "2 pearls", leaving her with 9. Unfortunately, the Church in America is completely unaware of her loss, and she thinks that she still has the 11 pearls.

 

As a 5-year-old young lady said last year under the Anointing of the Spirit, "Nobody is listening to what He is saying. He listens to us but we are not listening to Him". Is anybody in America really listening to what God is saying in the spirit realm about her? Is anyone out there aware of the spiritual delay caused by America's stubbornness? Is anyone out there aware of the deadly consequences of that delay? Is anyone out there aware of God's spiritual shift towards Europe? Is anyone out there seeing the tide of recent news events that are revealing that spiritual shift? Is anyone out there listening? Fellow believer, I personally feel like a speaker blaring out an urgent message over the sound system of an empty indoor stadium! For the love of God (and I mean that literally), is anyone listening? For the love of humanity (and I mean that literally), is anyone paying attention?

 

As we said at the top of this section, I received the "blue" dream 27 days after the posting of the "Red Sox Win!" word (the dream took place on November 25, 2004). I just realized this 27-day span yesterday (February 8, 2006). Over the last few weeks, the Lord has been repeating the number "27" over and over in my heart, and every time I see that number, the Lord says to my heart, "America didn't reach 28". As we have said before, the number "28" speaks of perfection or completion. Therefore, in this context, the number "27" speaks of falling 1 short of reaching perfection or completion. It speaks of how America was at the brink of the greatest revival in the history of mankind, which was to start in 2005 and become fully manifested to the world by 2012. America was at the edge of the Jordan, but she stepped back out of Thomas-like caution and half-heartedness.

 

As we shared in a word posted 20 days before Katrina hit New Orleans, God judges us against a standard of perfection or completion. The American Church has said to God,

"Look at all the churches we have; look at the Christian TV stations we have; look at the satellites we have circling the globe, spreading Your gospel. Look at all we have done for You. Come, Lord Jesus, because we sure as heaven are ready for You!!"

But the Lord replies,

It is useless for you to show Me all you have done for Me, for My gripe with you is not over what you have done but over what you REFUSE to do. Just as I did with the rich young man who stood before Me, I am telling you what you have failed to give. You want My Glory? You want My full-blown visitation? I cannot visit you if you do not complete your course. I cannot visit you unless you cross the bridge, because you sure as Sheol are not ready for Me!!! And I will give you Sheol through My green-horse judgments against you --- to certify this word I have spoken against you, says the Lord.

 

27 days after the Lord had declared that America reached "verse 11", He was prophesying (without me understanding it), that America would regress to "verse 9". Through the "blue" dream, He was declaring that He would take part of the mantle given to America and give it to the "blue kingdom". America shall be used of God in a mighty and wonderful way, just as Thomas was powerfully used in India, even after he had doubted God, but the glory and the reward shall not be the same.

 

Fellow believer, God is not interested in "27-style" near misses. Revivals have come and gone. Many "revival buildings" have been started, and they were all left unfinished. They eventually deteriorated and faded away like the grass in the field because the people who initiated them were unwilling to let go of certain things. There were foundational issues that were never resolved, which always led to the "building" going unfinished. The Church has been playing the "near-miss" game for thousands of years, and God has no more time to play the "near-miss" game. This is it. It is now or never. If it is not done now, and done the way He wants it, it shall not be done, and all those who insist on playing the "near-miss" game shall be harshly dealt with. Fellow believer, I once again ask you, "Is anyone listening?".

 

Sheol terror

We received the blue prayer shawl dream via e-mail on January 19, 2006, one day before the whale's appearance in the River Thames on January 20. Therefore, this dream was a spiritual precursor to the sign that would be manifested one day later. As we have said before, the first delay of America's spiritual revival was decreed by God on May 11, 2005, which was 254 days before January 20, 2006. Interestingly enough, the number 254 equals 127 times 2. As we have said before, the number "127" is spiritually related to Psalm 127 and the terrors of Sheol, and "Sheol" refers to the spiritual prison from which God's green-horse riders such as Jonah come out.

 

Therefore, it is no coincidence that 254 (127 times 2) days after America's revival was delayed, a "Jonah" whale appeared in London. America had proven itself uninterested in welcoming the Jonahs that come out of "Sheol" to visit her (Jonah 2:2), so the Lord sent Jonah to Europe, where he was received well. As America's revival was delayed, God's spiritual focus shifted towards Europe. The 2-witness anointing has been sent to Europe as America gets reprimanded for her spiritual negligence.

 

Because it was "green-horse" time for America and she missed her visitation, she shall be exposed to the terrors of Sheol over the next 3-and-a-half years. Interestingly enough, September 11, 2001 was day #254 of year 2001. That time, America was exposed to the terrors of Sheol because of her righteousness. This time, however, America shall be exposed to the terrors of Sheol because of her stubbornness.

 

Green-horse time means "Sheol time". When Jonah visited Nineveh, Nineveh willingly "died" before the Lord (Jonah 3:5-9), and she was blessed because of it (Jonah 3:10, 4:11). During Sheol time, those who voluntarily die and descend to Sheol shall enjoy the blessings of resurrection life, and those who refuse to die shall be swallowed up and be no more. If it were not for a small, faithful remnant that needs time to grow and mature, America would have gone down the same path as Latin America, and she would have been banned altogether from seeing the glory of the coming of the Lord.

 

America failed God's test for two reasons: she held on to her Girgashite institutionalized religion, and she was oblivious to the Canaanite influence from Latin America. These 2 spiritual factors are physically manifested in the epidemic of methamphetamine addiction, which is spurred by "meth" smuggled from Mexico into the USA. While the American Church remains dogmatically concerned about meaningless Girgashite "meth"odology, she is oblivious to the Latin-American-style Canaanite influence that is causing very real damage and destruction in America's spiritual atmosphere.

 

As I stared at the number "254", the Lord said to me, "1 Samuel 25:4". When I went to read that verse, this is what I found:

 

"And David heard in the wilderness that Nabal did shear his sheep" (1 Samuel 25:4)

 

If you read through the rest of 1 Samuel chapter 25, you will read how David was intent on killing Nabal, because Nabal was foolishly unwelcoming to David and his men (who are a figure of God's prophetic remnant). If it were not for the wisdom and grace of Nabal's wife Abigail, David would have massacred Nabal along with every male in that household. The name "Nabal" literally means "senseless, foolish". Therefore, this is the word from the Lord for America:

America, you have behaved like a senseless fool. If it were not for an Abigail in your midst, I would have cast you off, and you would not have had time to recover from your senselessness.

 

Let him who has ears hear what God is saying to the church in America.

 

The cadavers are in the way of My writing

In the previous posting, the Lord prompted us to quote the lyrics of a British song named "Unwritten". As I was typing the words above, the Lord reminded me of the following words in that song:

 

[Lyrics adapted from lirama.net]

 

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

 

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you can not find

 

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

 

The latter-rain revival is so close that the remnant can "almost taste it". But, in order for the Church to enter into that revival, it needs to "release its inhibitions". It has to "open up the dirty window" it has been looking through for centuries, a window dirtied up by Girgashite doctrines of men and Canaanite tolerance of unrighteousness. It needs to be willing to write words that are still "unwritten".

 

The Church structures that will bring the coming of the Lord have never been fully implemented on Earth. Even the Primitive Church had some foundational problem issues from the beginning. God is working to erect new structures, structures that are "new" to the Earth but not "new" to God, for they were prophesied from eternity past, and they are written in His Word (Isaiah 43:18-19). Yet, they remain unwritten in the pages of history, in the pages of this age, and the book of this age cannot be closed until these new pages are finally written. These new pages cannot be written by those who revere "sacred cows" (Isaiah 43:27-28), who view certain things of man as "untouchable", and who are not willing to "scoff at the kings" in the Church (Habakkuk 1:10). Why? Because the writing of these new pages requires that the carcasses of the kings be removed (Ezekiel 43:9). Once God kills these kings (and He is spiritually killing them), He requires that His people (not Him) remove those carcasses, as a way to reveal who is worthy of living in the age of these new pages. Those who deem themselves unworthy of touching the "kings" will not remove the carcasses, and they will eventually perish with them when God returns to revisit the house. By contrast, those who do remove the carcasses shall be blessed.

 

"1But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3But Peter said, Ananias, why hath satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. 7And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. 8And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. 9Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. 10Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. 11And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things. 12And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch." (Acts 5:1-12)

 

The name "Ananias" is a Greek version of the Hebrew name "Hananiah" meaning "Jehovah has graced". Therefore, Ananias is a figure of the "ministers" who have been endowed with grace in order to serve the people. Because of this grace, people believe that these "ministers" are of God, and they follow after them. However, just like Ananias, the Church's "ministers" manipulate this God-given grace, pretending to act like "selfless servants of God". In the meantime, they hide the fact that they are seeking personal soul benefit from their "disinterested ministerial work". In some cases, that "personal soul benefit" takes the form of riches and fame; in other cases, it is that maternal sense of having "needy children" who are permanently dependent on them; in other cases, it is the emotional rush of being in control of other people's lives.

 

Just like Ananias, the Church's "ministers" are being stricken down. Their spiritual callings are dying daily, by the hundreds, and the stench of their spiritual death is filling churches across America and the world. However, just as He did with Ananias, God is calling a remnant of "young men" to pick up the cadavers and bury them.

 

The phrase "young men" in verse 6 was translated from the Greek word neos, which literally means "new one, recent one". Even though these "young men" were "new" or "recent" believers, they did not hesitate to touch the body of Ananias, who was obviously an "older" and supposedly "more mature" believer. These "young men" did not have a caste mentality. They knew that, in the Anointing, there is no "young" and there is no "old"; there is no "minister" and there is no "layman"; there is only God and His people. The neos believers are the ones who write the new pages that remain unwritten, the pages that will culminate the end of this chronos time.

 

Notice also how the death and removal of Ananias and Sapphira led to an outbreak of signs and wonders in the Church. So shall it be in these latter days. When the cadavers are removed, God's Glory shall be manifested on Earth. Those who refuse to remove the cadavers shall be removed along with them, for God's Glory shall not be contained any longer.

 

Notice how Sapphira was given a 3-hour period to meditate on her actions. Her "covering", i.e.- her husband, had perished 3 hours earlier. However, since she was connected to her husband and not to the Spirit of God, she was unaware of this. When she was confronted by Peter (i.e.- the Holy Spirit --- v3, 9), she thought that her husband had her "covered", but her husband was no longer there to support her. Her husband was by then a cadaver. In the same way, the Church in America is full of Sapphiras who think that their Ananias has them covered, without discerning that Ananias is nothing more than a cadaver, an "undead zombie" whose spiritual calling has been cast away by God and who shall in no way enter God's Promised Land.

 

In my personal experience, I have found an interesting "6-month testing period" that follows the spiritual death of a "minister". It seems as if God gives the "minister's followers" a "180-day trial period" during which they will decide whom they will definitively ally themselves with (either with God or the cadaver). This 180-day period may not be literal, but, in my personal experience, I have found it happening in a very literal way. Therefore, it is no surprise that Sapphira was given 3 hours, which means that she was given 180 minutes to "think it over".

 

America 19

Just as the Lord has been impressing the transition from "27" to "28" in my heart, He has also emphasized the transition from "19" to "20". As we have said before, the number "20" is a number of "young warriors", since 20 was the age when the Israelites were old enough to enroll in the army. "Coincidentally", Reggie White, an NFL player about whom we shared in a previous posting, passed away 10 days shy of his 20th wedding anniversary at his home in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. There is a spiritual message behind this. Besides the spiritual message that we posted before, there was another message hidden in Reggie White's death.

 

As we have shared before, the Lord sent hurricane Charley against Charlotte County, Florida, and against the Carolinas in 2004 as an indictment against the "ministers" in the Church who claim to be more "spiritual" than their brethren but who are really acting on their "soulish" nature. As we have said before, "man" in Scripture is a figure of the "spirit", while "woman" is a figure of the "soul". Therefore, we can say that the "ministers" in the Church act like they are a manly "Charles", but they are really fickle "Charlottes" and "Carolines".

 

Unfortunately, most of the Church in America remains unaware of this. They continue to follow these soulish "Charlottes" and "Carolines" as if they were spiritual "Charleses". Even when God has sent spiritual (and literal) hurricanes "Charley" to kill these "Charlottes" and "Carolines", leaving them as lifeless cadavers, there has not been a significant number of believers who have dared to "haul these cadavers away" as the "young men" did with Ananias and Sapphira. When God "killed" the Charlottes, there was no army of "young warriors" ready to "swoop down" on their flesh to feast on them. Even when God called them to partake of the spoils, the believers in the American Church were afraid to even touch the corpses of their "sacred cows".

 

"17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." (Revelation 19:17-20)

 

As the passage above reveals, the anti-Christ spirit cannot be defeated unless an army of "young warriors" is willing to devour the "flesh of the kings" (v18) in the Church. When God called the believers in America to "devour" these kings, they backed away in fear, saying, "But Lord, how can we dare to even touch them; that would be wrong". Therefore, the precious opportunity to obliterate the anti-Christ spirit in America was wasted in the summer of 2005. America was unwilling to step from verse 19 to verse 20 in the passage above. In verse 20, the knockout punch was to be given, but the potential remnant in America lacked the exterminator zeal required to deal the "deathblow" to the anti-Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:8).

 

As we have shared before, the destruction of the "fatman minister-kings" requires an army of "Buccaneers", an army of spiritual "pirates" who have no regard for religious "protocol" or "proper religious manners". Believers trapped in "religious correctness" can never be part of the army of neos young warriors who will usher in the latter-rain revival. Reggie White died in Charlotte, North Carolina, 10 days shy of his 20th wedding anniversary as a prophetic figure of how America fell short of having a neos army of fearless "buccaneers" that would deal the knockout punch to the Charlottes and the Carolines in the Church. "Coincidentally", Revelation 19 --- the chapter that includes the passage quoted above --- speaks of a "wedding" (Revelation 19:7-9) and it speaks of "angel worship" (Revelation 19:10). Because the Church in America was still caught up in the spirit of "ministerial worship", it was afraid to act in prophetic buccaneer-boldness against the cadavers of the Church's sacred fat-cows, and it fell short of a mighty spiritual wedding that would have taken place in the air space over America. That wedding was to permanently change the spiritual atmosphere of America forever.

 

The spiritual Vietnam War

As narrated by Londoner Paul Hardcastle in his 1985 song entitled "19", the average age of combat soldiers in World War 2 was 26, but it was 19 in the Vietnam War. There is a spiritual reason for this. The region of Tibet and Indochina is (to this day) a region plagued by evil spirits of witchcraft and deceitful mysticism. It is a spiritual stronghold of darkness and deception. When American soldiers were sent to fight that war, they were being given literal weapons to fight the enemy, but they were not given "spiritual" weapons to overcome the spiritual stranglehold in that region. Soldiers went to Vietnam simply because they were being told to by military and political authorities. They were not "armed" with a sense of righteousness. They were not told to fight that war in order to give the Vietnamese people a chance to live in democratic freedom. They were simply sent to prevent the Soviets and the communist Chinese from having another ally in the world. The soldiers were mere pawns in a political and military game of "world influence" against the Soviets and the Chinese, and they were not privy to the cultural and spiritual forces at work in that part of the world.

 

The war was motivated by Jebusite anti-communists who were against the Soviets and against communism simply out of "doctrinal zeal", not because they truly cared for the people being oppressed by communist dictatorships. These Jebusite anti-communists (many of them "Christians") did not mind dictatorships, as long as the dictatorship did not ally itself with the Communists. This reveals the Jebusite disregard for the value of human life. Jebusites do not understand that God's laws and judgments are a means to an end (eternal life), not an end in and of themselves. To Jebusites, the laws are more important than the people for which those laws are made. To them, the "little" people are "replaceable" pawns that must be "corralled" and "harnessed" in order to achieve their Amorite king's desires. Jebusites lack "the first love"; they do not understand that the Most High God's desire is to be One with those "replaceable pawns" for eternity.

 

The latter half of the Vietnam War was led by Richard Nixon, a pragmatic Girgashite Republican who was more interested in visible results than in "higher, invisible principles". Nixon was also an opportunistic, glory-seeking Amorite, a man obsessed with the desire to be seen by others and by history as a great "statesman" and President. As we have said before, Girgashite-Amorites such as Nixon are spiritual "dumb bulls". When the Lord brings down "dumb bulls", He does it through "insignificant" and invisible "things" that grow and grow until they become overwhelmingly insurmountable. This is the reason why a "minor" break-in done by "insignificant pawns" in the dead of night at a Washington hotel led to Nixon's resignation 2 years later.

 

Under dumb-bull Nixon, the Vietnam War turned into a war fought by an American army dominated by the Jebusite, Girgashite, and Amorite spirits. These are the spirits on the right side of the triangle of evil, and, as we have shared before, they institute a spiritual scheme of "systematic shame". This is the reason why Muhammad Ali was exposed to so much shame when he chose not to fight in Vietnam out of sincere, personal conviction, even when that cost him his public reputation, his heavyweight title, and some of the best boxing years of his life.

 

Because the Vietnam War was fought by drafted soldiers sent under a Jebusite-Amorite-Girgashite "cloud" of shame, they became soldiers who fought because they were told to fight, not because they believed in or understood what they were fighting for. They were soldiers fighting for a spiritual Saul under a right-handed system of Saul-style intimidation (1 Samuel 14:1-52). As such, they were spiritually defenseless against the left-handed and invisible Hittite and Canaanite spirits in Indochina. This is the reason why the most powerful army in the world (by visible standards) lost to a small and invisible enemy hidden in the jungle, an enemy it could not "see" --- both literally and spiritually. Any right-handed system that denies God's left-handed prophetic nature is bound to fall at the hand of left-handed spirits. Under the duress of such a system, those who are prophetically sensitive become victims to psychological depression and despair, and those who are not prophetically inclined become "hardened realists" with disdainful disregard for "invisible" things, even when those invisible things are visibly defeating them. To this day, most of these "hardened realists" believe that the Vietnam War was lost because of "logistical" reasons.

 

Since the American Church was unwilling to put away "the carcasses of her kings" (Ezekiel 43:9), she remained under the intimidation of the Saul spirit, and, as a result, she was unable to grow into a Church full of "young warriors" who can act under the direct anointing of the Spirit. The American Church was unable to reach "age 20", the age of young warriors, choosing instead to remain at "19". Therefore, the American Church continues to fight a spiritual Vietnam War against an enemy it cannot see or understand. Despite all the "physical firepower", i.e.- despite all the churches, organizations, TV channels, and radio stations, it is doomed to failure, just like the mighty American army was doomed to failure in third-world Vietnam.
