Prophetic word for today

The blue prayer shawl (Part 3)

This is a continuation of the word on "The blue prayer shawl" posted earlier...

 

The shackles of freedom

In sister Marcella's dream/vision, she was wrapped so tightly in the prayer shawl that she could not move. This points to the following passage:

 

"18Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. 19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me." (John 21:18-19)

 

The prayer shawl speaks of "prophetic intercession". Therefore, the Lord is saying that a true intercessor is not simply a person who "prays a lot for other people". A true intercessor is a person who is willing to lay down his or her will and be taken by God to places where his or her soul might not be inclined to go. A true intercessor allows his hands to be bound by the will of God.

 

As we have shared before, God's latter-day army is an army of youthful warriors who have no reverence for the Church's "sacred cows". However, those warriors' "youthfulness" is combined with a "mature" submission to God's will. This is the reason why the Lord says to Peter, "When you were young, you girded yourself, and walked wherever you wanted, but when you are old, another shall gird you, and carry you where you do not want to go" (v18-19). "Youthfulness" speaks of "strength", and "old age" speaks of "weakness". God's prophetic intercessors are "young" in their proactive boldness and strength, but they are "old" in their submission to God. They allow God to use their lives whichever way He chooses. True intercessors intercede through their very lives. They understand that they are transforming the spiritual atmosphere through their very physical presence in a place, and they are willing to be physically taken (if necessary) to the places where God wants them to perform spiritual work.

 

A true intercessor is a person who frees him or herself from man in order to be a slave to God. True intercessors free themselves from the shackles of man in order to have space on their wrists for the shackles of God. Man's shackles come in two "flavors":

  1. Girgashite fear of death

    As we have said before, the Girgashite spirit instills a "fear of death" and a strong desire to hold on to temporal things as much as possible. Girgashites love the comfort and security of their boats (i.e.- methodologies), so they are very reluctant to step out of the boat and onto the water when God calls them out. They do not allow God to bind their hands in the middle of their fear of the invisible. Their minds begin to think about all the things that could possibly go wrong if they do God's will, and they think about all the benefits of "staying put". Their minds become concerned about the "shakiness" of walking on a foundation of prophetic waters. They are unwilling to "go out on a limb" because they cannot know for sure if the "limb" will sustain them. All of this prevents them from taking "quantum leaps of light". They stay in the old things of fading man and do not move in the new things of the Holy Spirit. Girgashites are afraid of being "fatherless".

     

  2. Canaanite soul communion

    As we have said before, Canaanite spirits create an inordinate dependence on soul communion. Canaanites love the emotional pleasure brought by communion with others at the soul level, which makes them very reluctant to heed God's call when it means breaking away from emotional attachments to others. They are dominated by their emotions and are unable to endure pain for long periods of time. Their emotions become leery of the "coldness" of apostolic isolation, choosing instead the warmth of "togetherness". All of this prevents them from going to (or staying too long in) the lonely wilderness. They prefer to stay in the filthy things of unrighteous man and do not move in the purity of the Son. Canaanites run away from "celibacy".

 

The Lord describes these two types of shackles in the following passage:

 

"28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. 32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a manís foes shall be they of his own household. 37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me." (Matthew 10:28-37)

[Verses 28-33 speak against the shackle of "Girgashite fear of death". Verses 34-37 speak against the shackle of "Canaanite soul communion".]

 

As we have seen before, Girgashites are "teachers gone bad" and Canaanites are "pastors gone bad". Therefore, it becomes evident that the 2 types of "man's shackles" are derived from the "female" ministries gone bad. This means that any atmosphere dominated by the "pastoral matriarchy" will try to place these shackles on the people that come in contact with it. No wonder the Church is full of shackled believers!!!

 

As we have also said before, the pastoral and teaching ministries are related to the "Man Face". Therefore, when the "Man Face" overshadows the other 3 spiritual faces, the 2 types of "man's shackles" come over people. People dominated by the "Man Face" are shackled people. Those who choose to loose themselves from man's shackles are then free to be "shackled by God", and, in doing so, they are free to manifest the Apostolic Lion, the Prophetic Eagle, and the Evangelistic Ox faces. Only those who are willing to be shackled by God shall be free in Him. Only those who are willing to be enslaved by death shall live in the freedom of resurrection.

 

The Lord Jesus, while on Earth, was "shackled" and taken where He did not want to go:

 

"36Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. 37And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 38Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. 39And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." (Matthew 26:36-39)

 

Jonah was also "shackled" inside the big fish and taken to Nineveh, a place where he definitely did not want to go. As we have said before, Jonah's "forcible relocation" to Nineveh was prompted by a voluntary vow he had made to the Lord years earlier (Jonah 2:9). Herein lies the glorious key to be a shackled slave of God: you tie yourself to God with the words of your mouth!!! You take on the Lord's shackles when you say to Him,

"Lord, do whatever you want to do with me. Take me wherever you want to take me. Make me suffer through whatever you want me to suffer. Here are my hands, my Lord and my God. Bind me and take me wherever you wish, for I am Your slave and You are my Master. Here is my 'nothing'. Here is my life before You. Use it as you please."

 

Once you declare these words with a sincere disposition, you are shackled by Him, and the glorious thing is that the fulfillment of your words is no longer up to you. You are not making God a "promise" that is based on your own abilities. You are surrendering control of your life, and He will make sure that you fulfill your vow in Him. All you have to do is die in His hands. Once you are dead, He can take you wherever He wishes. A corpse can't argue with those who are burying it. A corpse does not need to walk to the place where it will be buried. All a corpse has "to do" is lie there and allow another one to take it to its burial ground. So it is with you and me. All God asks for is the sincere disposition of your heart (Philippians 2:12-13) and a conscious declaration that flows from your heart, through your "mouth", and unto God.

 

When the Lord Yeshua died on the cross, He did not have to drive the 3 nails across His 2 wrists and His feet. In a sense, He had already driven those nails when He said to the Father "Thy will be done" 3 times (Matthew 26:39, 42, 44). Once He spoke those words in sincere disposition, the Father did all the rest, even when His words were uttered in the weakness of His human flesh (Matthew 26:41, Hebrews 5:7-9).

 

When you sign a contract, all that matters is your signature on the dotted line. It does not matter what you felt or thought as you were signing the paper. It does not matter if your emotions did not feel sure about your decision, and it does not matter if your mind thinks that you are capable of living up to the commitment. All that matters is that your heart made the decision to sign. In that sense, we all have been given the "final say" on our destiny. No one can stand before God and say, "Lord, I did not fulfill my calling in life because I simply could not live up to all that You wanted me to do". To anyone who says such a thing, the Lord will reply,

"All you had to do was say the words, but your hardened heart refused to say them. Therefore, you have no excuse before Me. You did not fulfill My calling for you because you CHOSE not to."

Fellow believer, if you fail to sign the "Surrender Contract" out of fear in your mind that you do not have the ability to fulfill it, you are shackling yourself with the Girgashite shackle. If you fail to sign the "Surrender Contract" because you are waiting until you have a "strong feeling" for it, you are shackling yourself with the Canaanite shackle. Signing the contract entails a deliberate decision of the heart, irrespective of mental doubts or emotional hesitations.

 

The Green Reaper

Once you sign the "Surrender Contract", you can expect the "Green Reaper" to come calling for you. According to Revelation 6:8, the green horse of the Apocalypse is ridden by Death, with Sheol following behind. And, as we have said before, the green horse comes to obliterate the predominance of the "Man Face" over the other 3 spiritual faces. Therefore, we can say that the green horse is a "Green Reaper" that comes to demand the Death of the "Man Face" and to take us to a Sheol prison we would rather not go to. Those who willingly accept the "Green Reaper's" demand can then resurrect out of their Sheol prisons to become "Green Reapers" themselves who ride the green horse to obliterate the predominance of the "Man Face" across the Earth.

 

In a sense, the Green Reaper comes to demand or "reap" a "dead body". This is the reason why sister Marcella was lying on the floor and "wrapped stiff" in the prayer shawl, like a dead body that is wrapped for burial:

 

"38And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. 39And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. 40Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. 41Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. 42There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jewsí preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand." (John 19:38-42)

[Notice that the man who requested Jesus' body for burial was named "Joseph", which points to the spiritual connection between "Joseph" and the "green horse" that we have studied before.

 

Notice also that Jesus did not have to "worry" about the place where He would be buried. You don't have to worry about where you will "drop dead". When you "die" in surrender, God is the one responsible for finding a place where your "body" will be buried.]

 

When the Green Reaper came to America, he demanded the carcasses of the kings that had died at the hands of the black horse, but the American Church would simply not hand them over. By contrast, when Goliath dropped dead at the hands of David, the people of Israel rose up to "remove" his cadaver and the presence of the Philistines from Israel:

 

"52And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou come to the valley, and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell down by the way to Shaaraim, even unto Gath, and unto Ekron. 53And the children of Israel returned from chasing after the Philistines, and they spoiled their tents. 54And David took the head of the Philistine, and brought it to Jerusalem; but he put his armour in his tent." (1 Samuel 17:52-54)

[The word "wounded" in verse 52 is the Hebrew word chalal, which actually means "slain, fatally wounded".]

 

The "rising" of the men of Israel correlates with the white horse that rises up to conquer the Church and the world unto God. Their "shouting" correlates with the "red-horse shout" that calls people out of the earthly structures of Cain. Their "pursuing" of the Philistines correlates with the black horse that forces people to wander in the wilderness of scarcity. Their "wounding" ("slaying" in Hebrew) of the Philistines was done during the pursuit, meaning that it also correlates with the black horse. Their "spoiling of the tents" and the removal of the giant's head from the battlefield correlates with the green horse that reaps the kings' carcasses and brings utter devastation upon the "Man Face".

 

Even though the passage above is, in a "macro" sense, related to the "green horse", it is also a microcosm of the 4 horses. God's word is "fractal" in its nature. Any individual part retains the inherent complexity of the whole. Hallelujah!!!

 

When Eglon, king of Moab, dropped dead at the hands of Ehud, the people of Israel rose up to "remove" his cadaver and the presence of the Moabites from Israel:

 

"25And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth. 26And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath. 27And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them. 28And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over. 29And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man. 30So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years." (Judges 3:25-30)

 

Both David and Ehud were acting as black horsemen when they killed Goliath and Eglon. Why? Because they were both acting in the "blackness" of anonymity. Ehud acted in left-handed stealth to kill Eglon (Judges 3:21-23), and David killed Goliath when he was still an "unknown" --- very well known by God but unknown to man:

 

"57And as David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58And Saul said to him, Whose son art thou, thou young man? And David answered, I am the son of thy servant Jesse the Bethlehemite." (1 Samuel 17:57-58)

[The name "Jesse" is derived from the Hebrew word yesh, which means "being, existence". Therefore, it points to the name "I AM", to Hashem, the One whose Name is unutterable (i.e.- incomprehensible) by mortal man (1 Timothy 6:16). On the other hand, "Bethlehem" points to "smallness" and "human insignificance" (Micah 5:2-3). Therefore, when David said "I am the son of Jesse the Bethlehemite", his spirit was saying the following:

My name is small and insignificant to the eyes of man ("Bethlehemite"), but my origins are from eternity past. My spiritual DNA traces back to the Ancient of Days ("Jesse").

 

Fellow believer, believe it or not, these words apply to you too.]

 

The red horse comes to shout and "stir up" the people against the kings (Acts 24:5), the black horse comes as a "young unknown" to kill them, and the green horse comes to remove their cadavers and clean up house. After the black horse has done his work, the followers of the "kings" are left "bald" (i.e.- "uncovered") because they are now bereft of their kings' spiritual protection and covering. The green horse then comes against those who persist in following these "bald Korahs" and drives them out of the house of God. That is how the house gets "cleaned up".

 

 

Horse

Operation

(1 Samuel 17:52-54)

 

Explanation

White Rising up Determining in one's heart to remove the kings (2 Kings 9:5-10)
Red Shouting Stirring up the people against the kings
Black Pursuing & Slaying Young unknowns killing the kings
Green Spoiling & Removing the head Devastating the kings and removing their carcasses

 

In contrast to what the people of Israel did after Eglon and David killed their respective "kings", the American Church did not rise up to remove the kings' carcasses and "clean house" after the "unknown" black horse came. Instead, the American Church tried to prop the carcasses up on their toilet thrones, and pretended as if the kings were still alive. When the Lord God sent black-horse judgments such as Katrina to expose the "cluelessness" of America's religious and political leaders, the American Church pretended as if nothing had happened, clearly showing that America simply did not "get it". Therefore, America shall "get" more of it --- more black- and green-horse judgments over the next 3-and-a-half years until she understands that it is time to "clean house".

 

Death comes riding on the green horse to shackle the Man Face. Those who refuse to be shackled by Death shall be forcibly shackled anyway, some unto perdition and some unto fierce sifting and eventual redemption. When Death comes on the green horse to shackle you, it is best to just surrender without a fight.

 

"8And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death. 9He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey. 10For I have set my face against this city for evil, and not for good, saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire." (Jeremiah 21:8-10)

 

Forci"blue" relocation

As we said above, true intercessors intercede through their very lives, and they are willing to be physically taken (if necessary) to the places where God wants them to perform spiritual work. On many occasions, God will take you to a place in the Spirit, and there might even be physical manifestations of you in a place far away from where you are.

 

"And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert." (Acts 8:26)

 

Notice how Philip was sent towards the Gaza Strip area, which means that he was sent to defy the Goliath-style Philistine spirit of hierarchical intimidation, since Gaza was one of the 5 major Philistine cities in the time of Saul (1 Samuel 6:17). The fact that Jerusalem is mentioned here is a prophetic indication of how the religious structures in Jerusalem were contaminated with the Goliath spirit. Jerusalem here is a figure of the Church's institutional structures.

 

When Philip heeded God's call to go to the lonely desert, He was heeding the Lord's red-horse shout. This means that the red-horse anointing will at times physically take you to uncomfortable places.

 

"39And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. 40But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea." (Acts 8:39-40)

 

Philip stayed in the lonely desert, where he shared with the eunuch. During his "stay" in the desert, both Philip and the eunuch were under the black-horse anointing. When they came out of the water (v39), it was a figure of believers coming out of their Sheol prisons, meaning that they came under the green-horse anointing. We can, therefore, say that, when you move in the green-horse anointing, you enter into a level of resurrection freedom that allows you to even be physically transported to other places!!! However, to be a green-horse rider, you must be willing to let God shackle you and take you to the desert and then to Sheol.

 

"For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed" (1 Corinthians 5:3)

 

Notice how Paul was launching a judgment from afar, which correlates with the black horse, since black-horse riders launch invisible judgments from the lonely wilderness outside. When you allow God to use you as a black-horse rider, you begin to project your spirit across physical distances. From all of the above, we can see the types of "relocations" that you will move in under each of the 3 horses:

 

Horse Type of relocation
Red Physically moved to uncomfortable places
Black Transported in the spirit to make judgments
Green Physically transported to other places

 

*The white horse is not included, since it acts as an umbrella for the other 3 horses

 

In a narrow sense, sister Marcella's dream/vision is a figure of how God's remnant was forcibly taken to visit the UK (which is represented by the blue squares). This is the reason why the whale appeared in the Thames one day after sister Marcella e-mailed the dream. Because of America's negligence, the Lord came to His willing remnant, shackled it, and took it in the spirit to visit the UK and Europe. The whale was a green-horse physical "projection" or "transportation" of the remnant spirit. Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit is saying.

 

To the natural eye, America seems like a more "fertile" ground for God's word than the UK or Europe, so those with the remnant spirit would naturally be reluctant at first if told that God wants them in Europe instead of America. However, those who are "contractually bound" to the Lord will be willing to make a relocation that implies a "death" experience. The whale went to London, not for the purpose of "living it up", but to die there. God is calling believers who are willing to "die" for Europe. God is calling believers who are willing to realize that the UK and Europe have a mighty spiritual potential that is indeed worth dying for. Fellow believer, do you believe that Europe has a spiritual potential that would be worth your personal suffering and sacrifice? Would you be willing to take a knife and sacrifice your "Isaac" on behalf of Europe's potential (Genesis 22:10)? Do you see that potential? Do you visualize the glory that God desires to pour over the "dead" continent of Europe? Do you perceive God's anger at an American Church whose religious self-importance impeded God's work in Europe?

 

American idiot

An American rock group named "Green Day" released an album in 2004 that is prophetically titled "American Idiot". That album includes a song called "Wake me up when September ends". The song speaks of someone going through a rough time, and who requests to be "woken up" when September ends, as if to say that the month of September had been like a giant nightmare for him. The song was inspired by the lead vocalist's loss of his father at age 10.

 

According to wikipedia.org, the group "Green Day" had released the albums "Nimrod" and "Warning" before releasing "American Idiot". As we have said before, the name "Nimrod", which appears in Genesis 10:8-9, has generally been associated with negative concepts; however, upon closer study, it becomes evident that it is really a figure of the mighty latter-day army of individual-thinking conquerors who will stand "before the Lord" (Genesis 10:9 --- the only way one can "stand" before the Lord's Face is in righteousness). The name "Nimrod" literally means "rebellious" or "valiant", which points to the "buccaneer" spirit mentioned before. Therefore, without them knowing it, Green Day named their album "Nimrod" as a prophetic figure of the latter-day army that God wanted to raise up in America. The next album, "Warning", was a prophetic sign saying that God had found stumbling blocks within the Church in America that were hindering His perfect will. The next album, "American Idiot" was a prophetic indictment from God against America because she was too idiotic to heed His warning. Instead of being an army of "Nimrods" rebellious against man's structures, the American Church became a determined group of "Nimrods" rebellious against His perfect will.

 

Interestingly enough, Green Day fought "burnout" after the album "Warning", which is a prophetic figure of how the remnant grew more and more tired as America ignored God's repeated warnings. America was supposed to provide a "Green Bay of refuge" for the tired remnant, but she rejected God's call. Fighting this burnout, Green Day went into the studio to write and record new material for a new album. After working hard to complete 20 tracks, the master tapes were stolen from the studio. This is a prophetic figure of how America got stuck at "19", allowing satan to steal the opportunity to reach "20", i.e.- the spiritual stage where a mighty Nimrod army of young warriors would be raised up.

 

Green Day was understandably upset when the 20 tracks were stolen, and chose not to recreate the album. This is a figure of how God became upset at America and sentenced her to an irrevocable 4-year delay that no one can talk Him out of (Jeremiah 14:11, Hebrews 12:17). Because the American Church became a group of "Nimrods" rebellious against His perfect will, He declared an irrevocable Nahum judgment against the American Nineveh. By contrast, Jonah's judgment against the European Nineveh was "revoked" because the European Nineveh welcomed Jonah (Jonah 3:1-10).

 

Since Green Day chose not to recreate the stolen album, they decided to start over, and they made a vow to be even better than before. They even engaged in several long discussions to work out the group's internal differences. The group's members felt that the lead singer was becoming a glory-hogging show-off and a "Nazi"-style dictator. After they reestablished "equality" within the group, the creative floodgates opened as well, since each member was allowed to contribute his musical endowment into the album. This led to the creation of the album "American Idiot", which debuted at #1 on the U.S. Billboard charts; this was the first #1 album for the band. All of this is a figure of why the American Church got stuck at "19" and was robbed of the opportunity to reach "20", and it is also a figure of what she needs to do to be restored. God told her to exorcise the "human king" spirit from within her, but she refused. However, "20" will not be reached and God's spiritual floodgates will not be opened on America until she finally agrees to remove the "kings carcasses" from her midst.

 

The album "American Idiot" is a "rock opera" with a storyline that runs throughout the album's songs. The album follows the journey of a character named "Jesus of Suburbia". This album is therefore a figure of the Church's journey through regeneration until its spiritual shackles are removed and the Jesus on the inside is manifested on the outside. The album includes a song entitled "Boulevard of broken dreams" that describes in prophetic fashion how the American Church deliberately abandoned the prophetic remnant without enabling it to be manifested. It is a prophetic reference to the "pit" of aborted dreams where the American revival ended up due to America's cautious religiosity. America let the sun go down on God's righteous remnant, leaving it out in the cold of the winter night.

 

The song "Wake me up when September ends" is a "digression" from the album's "opera", but it still fits in spiritually with the rest of the album. There is a powerful prophetic message behind this song. September is the 9th month of the year. Therefore, this song is speaking about how the prophetic remnant's stay in America turned into a giant nightmare when America backtracked to September (i.e.- "9"), having already made it to November (i.e.- "11"). Instead of finding fatherly support in America, those with the remnant spirit were left to fend for themselves, and were made to "wander" like fatherless children through the spiritual hills and valleys of America.

 

The group's name, "Green Day", points to the fact that it was "green-horse time" for America. It was time to "finish up" the job, to provide the knockout punch against the enemy and "clean house"; it was time to enter the 12th month, the month of "December", the month during which the 12th apostle, that traitor Judas, would be replaced by an "unknown" man after God's own heart (Acts 1:15-26). It was time to finish up December and start a new spiritual year --- the Year of Jubilee --- but America was not up to the task. Those bearing the remnant spirit and the green-horse anointing were then exposed to an oppressive atmosphere. The remnant spirit was declared "unwelcome", and it was forced to leave for the UK and Europe. The remnant stood up like David and shouted, "The giant is dead ... Rise up and drive the enemy out of the land", but all the remnant could hear in return was the sound of "crickets" in the night, for America's spiritual army simply stood like a deer staring into the oncoming headlights. Because the American Church was idiotically negligent and sleepy at a time when it was to proactively rise up and conquer, she shall pay the consequences. The Green Reaper shall get the carcasses he demands, but at a price much higher than the one God originally intended for America.

 

As we have said before, America has behaved like a proud Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar was warned of his oncoming judgment, and he was given an opportunity to repent of his idiocy (Daniel 4:27), but he gladly passed up on the opportunity, feeling that there was no judgment to fear and no sin to repent of. These were the consequences 12 months later:

 

"28All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar. 29At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon. 30The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? 31While the word was in the kingís mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. 32And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. 33The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eaglesí feathers, and his nails like birdsí claws." (Daniel 4:28-33)

 

Notice how Nebuchadnezzar was driven from men, meaning that God judged his "Man Face", and he was forced to develop his spiritual "Ox Face" and his "Eagle Face" (v33). At the end of his sifting period, he also developed his spiritual "Lion Face" of judgments, as shown by what he said then:

 

"Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase." (Daniel 4:37)

[As we have said before, "truth" and "judgments" are inextricably intertwined in Scripture. Therefore, these words reveal that Nebuchadnezzar finally understood that God is a God of judgments, which means that his spiritual "Lion Face" was finally restored.]

 

In a spiritual sense, Nebuchadnezzar was imposed the shackles of God so that he could finally be free from the shackles of fallen man:

 

"15Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth: 16Let his heart be changed from manís, and let a beastís heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him. 17This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men." (Daniel 4:15-17)

 

Notice the spiritual "band" (i.e.- "shackles") placed on the stump (v15). God left a "stump" and did not wipe out the whole "tree" because He saw good things in Nebuchadnezzar's heart. There were redeemable qualities in him that merited the opportunity for regeneration after the harsh judgment that was to come upon him. I can joyfully say in my heart that God can say the same thing about America. Despite the spiritual idiocy she displayed in the summer, autumn, and winter of 2005, God sees redeemable qualities in her. He sees sincere believers who want to know and do His will, but who are currently caught up in religious bondages that prevent them from truly seeing the light. In a sense, America has already signed the "Surrender Contract". Therefore, God shall sift America. He shall shackle her with bands of "iron" and "bronze" judgments (v15), and He shall force her to recognize her idiocy, just as he did with Nebuchadnezzar.

 

America is a "redeemable George", a king George that has been unwilling to die. Therefore, God is coming to kill "king George" and to drag his carcass away so that God's Glory can be manifested in the "wavy land of Thomas". After killing king George, God will resurrect him, but with a new name and a new, submissive nature. America shall indeed be taken where she has refused to go.

 

As shown by Daniel 4:29, twelve months have been decreed. God began to warn America of her idiocy around April 2005, and He declared the first delay of the revival on May 11, 2005. Nine months have passed, and three months remain. Wake me up when month number 9 ends.

 

{You can read the lyrics for "Wake me up when September ends" at lirama.net. The lyrics for "Boulevard of broken dreams" can be found at lirama.net. Fellow believer, we just learned most of the information on Green Day (included in this section) today (February 16, 2006) ... from wikipedia.org. It is absolutely shocking to me how the spiritual themes running through this group's journey and songs are such an exact reflection of what is going on in the spirit realm. There is a great deal of precious bread adrift in the sea. There are prophets out there who are living out prophetic existences and uttering prophetic words without them even knowing it. The Church, however, is too blind and self-enclosed to perceive that prophetic anointing. How can the Church recognize the prophets outside when it cannot even recognize the prophets inside? To the cursed matriarchal Church, the only good prophet is a dead prophet. As long as the prophetic anointing does not challenge the soul matriarchy, it is accepted within the Church, but such "anointing" is false and deceitful. A prophet who is not reviled by the soul matriarchy is a dead prophet. Such a prophet is as dead as the carcasses he or she defends, regardless of how "alive" and "successful" he or she may seem to be.

 

Can anyone see what is going on in the spirit realm? The fields are ripe for harvest!!! Somebody please listen!!! Somebody please pay attention to what is going on!!! I say this with tears in my eyes!!! Please, somebody listen!!! The harvest is so plentiful, and the true laborers are so few! What do you need, idiotic Church, to understand what God is trying to say and do? The Lord God began with words of encouragement. When you did not listen, He raised the volume. When you still refused to listen, He raised the volume even more. Since you are still Spirit-deaf, the Lord will blast the message into your deaf heart and ear. That is the only way you will learn to hear.}

 

From shawl to whales

As we have said before, we received sister Marcella's blue-shawl dream/vision one day before the London whale appeared in the River Thames. The Lord made us notice that the English word "shawl" can be turned into the English word "whales" by doing 3 simple changes:

  1. Add an "e" at the end

    This turns "shawl" into "shawle"

     

  2. Move the "s" at the beginning of the word to the end

    This turns "shawle" into "hawles"

     

  3. Move the "w" in the middle to the beginning of the word

    This turns "hawles" into "whales"

 

Believe it or not, these 3 simple letter changes reveal 3 powerful principles related to prophetic intercession, and each principle points to the 3 horses of the Apocalypse that come after the white horse:

  1. Belief in the value of small things

    The letter "e" is a "small" letter, and, when it appears at the end of English words, it is generally silent. However, this silent little letter has a profound effect on the meaning and pronunciation of words in the English language. The letter "e" is the difference between "rat" and "rate", "sag" and "sage", "fat" and "fate", "din" and "dine", "car" and "care".

     

    In chemistry, the term "catalyst" is used to describe a substance that is added to spawn or accelerate a chemical reaction between other substances; after the reaction takes place, the catalyst remains unchanged and does not combine itself with the other substances in the reaction. In other words, the catalyst acts only as a "bridge" or "enabler" for the other substances to react, without deriving any "benefit" from the reaction. In that sense, therefore, the letter "e" in the English language often acts as a "catalyst", since it alters the meaning and pronunciation of words without "being recognized" itself in the final pronunciation.

     

    Catalysts are "reaction stirrers". When the catalyst is added, it enables reactions among substances that would otherwise remain inert. Usually, the catalyst is small in mass when compared to the other substances in the reaction. All of this reveals that red-horse riders are spiritual catalysts, since they are "weak" teachers and "insignificant" apostles who come to question the established teachings of man, thereby "stirring" things that would otherwise remain "as is". They come to shake the spiritual status quo, but their intention is not to gain personally from the "agitation". Their concern is with the world around them aligning to the truth. They have no "hidden agenda". They don't mind remaining the "same" at the end of the spiritual reactions they cause.

     

    True prophetic intercessors are disinterested "catalysts". They are willing to sell their "garment" of human visibility to buy the sword of the Spirit (Luke 22:35-38). They do not care if the world is changed through them without anyone noticing that it was through them that the change took place (Ecclesiastes 9:15-18). They are not out to change the world in order to be seen. They are out to change the world because the change must be done. They are also not fooled by their own "smallness". They know that it takes but one tiny seed to bring forth a mighty tree. They know that, by God's grace, they have the DNA of God Himself inside of them, and they know that that is enough to change the world.

     

    "29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of Godís elect? It is God that justifieth. 34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us." (Romans 8:29-34)

    [Notice in verse 29 that the Lord is the firstborn among "many brethren" who are predestined (i.e.- pre-assigned) to be conformed to the image of the Son of God. A true intercessor knows the great value hidden inside his or her external "smallness". Therefore, he or she is not afraid to contend against anything and anyone. If God be with us, who can be against us? (v31). A true intercessor knows that God wants to give us "all things", which, as we have studied before, means that we are called to possess the nations of the Earth unto God. A true intercessor will not accept any Eliab-style or Jezebel-style condemnation from the enemy (v33) accusing him or her of being "too small or insignificant" to execute judgments and change the world (Romans 8:1, Revelation 12:7-11). Notice also that verse 34 speaks of "intercession". Therefore, the Lord is declaring that a true intercessor is able to see the eternal God-value hidden inside of him or her. Just as our brother Yeshua makes intercession for His brethren, we have the authority to make intercession for our brethren in Him.]

     

    To a true prophetic intercessor, the phrase "more than conquerors" in Romans 8:37 is more than a "feel-good" phrase or a spiritual justification to "claim" a brand new house in prayer. To a true intercessor, the phrase "more than conquerors" means that we have been granted access to the white-horse anointing that goes out and conquers the Church and the world unto God. As we have said before, the white horse is the spiritual umbrella for all the other horses. We cannot operate in the fullness of the red-horse anointing unless we don the white-horse conqueror mantle.

     

    True prophetic intercessors also see others as "catalysts". In other words, they see the potential hidden inside the "small" people around them, and they will contend and strive against any untruth that is hindering that potential (Romans 1:17-19).

     

  2. Realization of the irrelevance of "big" things

    As we have studied before, God endows all of us with ministerial grace, but that grace is not so that we may feel "superior" to others. In life, each of us will be assigned an army of "enablers"; these "enablers" have the God-given responsibility to give us a spiritual impartation that will strengthen and edify us at various stages of our lives. These "enabler" roles are not "static" in nature; instead, they are dynamically determined in the Anointing. According to 1 Peter 5:5, we are to submit "one to another", meaning that, at times, we will be the "enabler", and, at times, we will be the "enablee". At times we will be the "enabling elder", and at times we will be the "enabled youth".

     

    True spiritual covering "begets" (Luke 1:35), meaning that, as we impart to others, they will begin to move in the same grace and gifts that we imparted to them. If you impart from your apostolic grace, those you impart to will become full-fledged apostles. If you impart from your prophetic grace, those you impart to will become full-fledged prophets. If you impart from your evangelistic grace, those you impart to will become full-fledged evangelists. Ministerial grace, therefore, was not designed to create "hierarchies" and to have a few believers domineering over others. Instead, it is designed so that we enable and edify each other until we all reach the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-13). A system of hierarchies conforms a "body of Moses". A system of impartation conforms the "Body of Christ".

     

    From all of the above, we can say that ministerial grace "multiplies". When you have a gift of the Lord and you use it in submission to God's will, that gift will propagate and multiply to all the people around you. One apostle leads to many apostles; one prophet leads to many prophets; one evangelist leads to many evangelists; one pastor leads to many pastors; one teacher leads to many teachers. This is the reason why the letter "s" has to be moved from the front of the word to the end in step 2 above. The Church's "ministers" have used their God-given gifts to move to the "front" of the Church. They use their gifts to stand above others, without realizing that their gifts were designed to serve others.

     

    A true intercessor, therefore, must understand that many that are first shall be last (Matthew 19:30). Just as he or she sees the value of "small" things, a true intercessor will also disdain the inflated value of "big" things. In other words, a true intercessor will operate in the Spirit in order to humble those who have aggrandized themselves over God's people and who have given themselves an artificial sense of self-importance that is not derived from God. A true intercessor knows that the "first" must be moved to "last" in order for God's purposes to be manifested. This means that he or she will launch invisible spiritual judgments from the "lonely wilderness" outside that will expose the spiritual emptiness of the "big" men and their "big" earthly structures. In short, a true intercessor is willing to operate under a black-horse anointing that reveals the irrelevance of "big" things.

     

  3. Longing to see the value of small things fully manifested

    The letter "w" is the "widest" letter in the alphabet, which means that it speaks of something "great". As we said above, the letter "w" in "hawles" must be moved from the middle to the beginning in order to produce the word "whales". This speaks of the manifestation of God's greatness from within us and out to the forefront. True intercession longs and fights for this manifestation in the brethren around us.

     

    As we have said before, the green horse is ridden by believers who have been "to Sheol and back", i.e.- by believers who have been willing to "die" and suffer through terrible "Sheol experiences", and who are then brought out from the "center of the Earth" to be manifested in "resurrection" nature, just like the letter "w" that comes out from the middle of "hawles" to appear at the beginning of the word "whales". Therefore, we can say that a believer with the green-horse anointing longs to see their fellow believers exploding like atomic bombs, irradiating their hidden God-nature out into the world's spiritual atmosphere. Once that hidden God-nature explodes from within you, there is nothing on Earth that can contain it. It is an overwhelming and devastating force that obliterates anything that stands against it.

     

In summary, a true intercessor will see the hidden value of "small" things ("e"), disdain the inflated value of "big" things ("s"), and long for the manifestation of the spiritual greatness ("w") in "small" things. A true intercessor will work to remove the self-important "s" from the forefront so that the wonderful greatness of God in us ('w") may replace it. This completes the transformation of the word "shawl" into the word "whales". Once that process is complete, the Church shall be full of many "whales", i.e.- many mighty fish that shall glorify the Lord God.

 

True intercession breaks the "spell" that the letter "s" has had on believers, allowing them to shed their pod-like shells so that their "w" may be manifested. True intercession scatters the "s"elf-important who have domineered over God's people (Psalm 144:4-8), allowing for the dawning of the "Year of Jubilee". All of this happens as you allow yourself to be wrapped in the blue-squares prayer shawl and taken where you do not want to go.
