In the wee hours of Tuesday morning (March 29, 2005), Joan Kennedy, the ex-wife of Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy, was found lying on the street by a passer-by. She had suffered a "cerebral commotion" and a fracture in her right shoulder. The passer-by called for help, and Joan Kennedy was taken to a Boston hospital. She is 68 years old. Her son is U.S. Congressman Patrick Kennedy.
This is the prophetic interpretation:
As most of you may know, the Kennedy family is a wealthy Massachusetts family that has had a great impact on U.S. politics. Besides their wealth and political influence, however, they are also known for the "Kennedy curse".
John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) defeated Richard Nixon in the 1960 elections to become the 35th President of the United States. He was President until November 22, 1963, when he was shot to death by a sniper in Dallas, Texas. During his 1037 days as President, his youthfulness and charm made him a beloved figure to most Americans. During his presidency, he predicted that the U.S. would get a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s, and he boldly faced up to Khrushchev and the Soviets when they tried to set up a nuclear missiles base in Cuba. He was a champion of civil rights who openly spoke out against racial discrimination in the South, and he is famous for his line, "Ich bin ein Berliner", when he spoke in West Berlin and identified himself with the Eastern Europeans' struggle for freedom against Communist oppression. He is also famous for the line "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country", which speaks of prophetic self-sacrifice as opposed to Girgashite self-centeredness.
As one meditates on the life of JFK, it becomes evident that there was a spirit of prophetic boldness about this man. He was a prophetic visionary who was not afraid to confront established Girgashite systems and structures. It is not surprising, therefore, that he was assassinated, since prophets are always killed --- figuratively and sometimes literally (Luke 11:49). As most of you may know, his seemingly impossible prediction about a man landing on the moon before the end of the 1960s came true when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon on July 20, 1969. Shortly after his death, the Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, and the world saw how Khrushchev and the Soviets withdrew their nuclear missiles from Cuba in October 1962 after they realized that the young and apparently inexperienced JFK did not flinch. Some 36 years after his death, the Berlin Wall before which he had pronounced his famous speech finally came down.
His younger brother Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) was a similarly notable human being. He became a publicly known figure in the U.S. when his brother JFK appointed him "Attorney General" of the U.S. He was a devoted husband and a compassionate man who, like his brother, believed in social justice and equality. He was on his way to win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States when he was killed by a man who placed a gun to his head and killed him after a political victory rally in June 1968. It is almost certain that RFK would have won the November 1968 elections, and this is even backed up by "Bible codes" found in the original Hebrew text of the Old Testament that predicted RFK's death by assassination and also predicted that he would have been president had he not been killed.
As one meditates on the life of RFK, it becomes evident that there was a strong apostolic calling on his life. The fact that his job position in the Kennedy administration was as "Attorney General" reveals that he had a calling towards the execution of judgments and justice, which is by nature an apostolic endeavor. The fact that he was "smaller" than JFK (age-wise and even physically) also points towards the apostolic ministry, since "smallness" is related to the apostolic calling. His open preaching of social justice during his presidential campaign also points to his apostolic calling.
Another evidence in favor of RFK's predominantly apostolic calling is the fact that he was killed by a Palestinian at close range (as opposed to JFK, who was killed from a distance). As we have said before, while prophets (and Hittites) are arrow and spear shooters who operate from a distance, apostles (and Jebusites) are sword-carriers who operate "up close". Palestinians are Canaanites who have an inherent hatred for the God of Israel, and, as we have said before, the "God of Israel" is the God of apostolic justice and judgments whom the Canaanite soul abhors.
As we have seen before, natural grace is spiritually related to the evangelistic ministry. Therefore, JFK's natural charm and charisma means that he was an evangelist, and his sincere interest in social justice also reveals his apostolic calling. This means that JFK was a prophet, evangelist, and apostle, in that order. RFK, on the other hand, was an apostle, prophet, and evangelist, in that order. RFK's prophetic calling can be seen in the fact that he was also assassinated and his evangelistic calling can be seen in his natural but more subtle charm.
After the deaths of John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy, the remaining Kennedy brother with political influence was Ted Kennedy, who is to this day a Massachusetts senator. Ted Kennedy never showed the prophetic boldness or evangelistic charm of his two dead brothers. He has never shown much interest in being president of the United States, resigning himself to being a very loud, liberal voice in the U.S. Senate.
A few years ago, JFK's son, John F. Kennedy Jr., died in a tragic plane crash. Besides this tragedy, the Kennedy family has been haunted by multiple scandals, which has added to the generalized belief that there is some sort of "curse" on the Kennedy family.
The Lord says the following about curses:
This means that, behind every curse, there is always something that "draws" it in. The verse above declares that there are two ways that curses are "drawn in":
The words "bird" and "wandering" in Proverbs 26:2 were translated from the Hebrew words tsippowr and nuwd respectively. The only other time in the Old Testament where both of these Hebrew words appear in the same verse is in verse 1 of Psalm 11:
"1 In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain? 2For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. 3If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" (Psalm 11:1-3)
Notice that the soul is referred to as a "bird" that is "fleeing" to its mountain. The word nuwd that was translated as "flee" in verse 1 has the connotation of fluttering, of movement to and fro. Therefore, the "fleeing bird" in verse 1 refers to a soul that is desperately flying to and fro as it seeks shelter from the attack of the wicked. Notice that this attack is portrayed in verse 2 as "arrow shots", which, as we have said before, speak of Hittite attacks from the darkness of anonymity. This explains why JFK was assassinated by a sniper.
When God cursed the Earth, He declared the following:
"17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return" (Genesis 3:17-19)
The curse on the "ground" or "earth" speaks of God's curse against the Girgashite spirit of earthliness. Therefore, this passage reveals that those who dwell on Girgashite earthliness are condemned to suffer "Hittite stings" caused by the "thorns" and "thistles" that come out of the ground. This means that the Hittite attacks referred to in Psalm 11:1-3 are caused by a Girgashite influence, either internal or external, in the person's life.
We can now say that a curse comes as a "bird by wandering" when there is a strong, unrelenting Girgashite influence on the person's life. In the case of the Kennedys, the curse has come as a result of the strong catholic influence in their family. As we have said before, the catholic church is known for its rigid ceremoniousness, religiosity, focus on tradition, and focus on religious hierarchies, all of which points to the Girgashite spirit.
As we have also said before, Girgashites hate prophets, which means that, as the prophetic spirit began to rise inside the Kennedy family, the catholic, Girgashite influence became the vessel through which vicious Hittite attacks were launched against the prophetic spirit in an effort to prevent it from being manifested. When these Girgashite-Hittite attacks come, the souls of the righteous are pressured to flee.
Notice that Psalm 11:1 asks, "how do you say to my soul, flee as a bird to your mountain?". In other words, the Girgashite spirit will say to the prophetic spirit: "This is not your territory; you don't belong here; get out of this place". Girgashites are prone to kick prophets out of town:
"And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way." (Matthew 8:28)
[The word "Gergesenes" is the Greek form of the word "Girgashites". The word "country" was translated from the Greek word chora, which is derived from the word chasma meaning "chasm, gulf", which, in turn, points to the Hittite spirit of emptiness. Therefore, the "country of the Gergesenes" is a Girgashite expanse with Hittite emptiness.]
"32And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. 33And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. 34And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts." (Matthew 8:32-34)
As we have said before, the swine are a figure of the Girgashite spirit. When Jesus the prophet cast the Girgashite spirits out of the man, the Girgashite residents fled like birds into the city. The phrase "went their ways" in verse 33 is the Holy Spirit's way of saying that, as diehard Girgashites, they were too proud and unwilling to relinquish their ways, despite what Jesus had done for the once-possessed man. The sight of the 2,000 dead pigs (Mark 5:13) floating in the water was too "weird" a sight for their Girgashite, traditional ways.
When the whole city came out to meet Jesus, verse 34 says that they "saw" Him. The word "saw" was translated from the Greek word eido, which means "to see with the mind's eyes". In other words, they saw Jesus with the eyes of their natural, Girgashite mind, but not with their prophetic "eyes". Because of this, they asked Jesus to depart from their region. Ironically, the word "besought" in verse 34 was mistranslated from the Greek word parakaleo, which actually means "to exhort", and, as we have said before, the act of "exhorting" is related to the prophetic ministry. Therefore, it can be said that the Girgashites used their Hittite "prophetic" ability to exhort in order to drive the prophet Jesus out of town!!!
At first, Jesus' prophetic presence had forced the Girgashites to flee like birds (v33), but they went out for "backup" in order to pressure Jesus' soul into leaving their borders. In a sense, they said to Jesus what others had said to the psalmist in Psalm 11:1 --- "flee as a bird to your mountain". This is why the very next verse after Matthew 8:34 says the following:
"And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city" (Matthew 9:1)
[Notice that Jesus was forced to "flee" to his own mountain (i.e.- city)]
Fellow believer, every time you are operating prophetically in a situation where the Girgashite influence is strong, the people under that influence will work to drive you out of town. If you have some sort of emotional or mental attachment to that Girgashite influence, you will allow it to come against you as a fluttering-bird curse that will bring unnecessary destruction to your life. Notice that Jesus did not insist on staying in the "country of the Gergesenes". When they told Him to go "to His own city", He did, and, upon leaving, He "bounced" the curse back at them:
"10But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. 13Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 15And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me." (Luke 10:10-16)
The Lord said this to the disciples when He sent them in "twos" (Luke 10:1). Based on what we have said before, the pair of believers here are a figure of the prophetic and apostolic anointings, and the "dust" in verse 11 speaks of the Girgashite spirit of earthliness. Therefore, "wiping off the dust that cleaves to us" means that we must shake off any sort of attachment to the Girgashite influence that rejected our prophetic and apostolic anointing. Notice that Jesus then tells the disciples to declare judgment on the city. Jesus didn't say, "Tell them that Jesus loves them and will give them blessings galore despite their unbelief".
"24Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground." (Genesis 19:24-25)
[The overthrowing of "that which grew upon the ground" is a prophetic figure of God's destruction of all the religious works that Girgashites like to perform in the strength of the flesh (Jeremiah 17:5)]
Sodom was utterly destroyed by God, and, as we have said before, to "curse" something is equivalent to "sentencing it to utter destruction". Therefore, when Jesus told His disciples to declare the judgment on the city as worse than the judgment for Sodom (Luke 10:12), He was telling them to declare a "curse" over the city.
When Girgashites reject God's prophetic spirit, a "hot curse potato" is automatically produced. If the prophet in any way attaches him or herself to the Girgashite influence that rejected him or her, the prophet will draw in an unnecessary curse that will come as a "bird by wandering" to wreak havoc in his or her life. However, if the prophet wipes off the Girgashite dust, he or she will automatically thrust the "hot curse potato" back at the rejecting Girgashites. Never allow yourself to get stuck with that "potato" in your hands. The curse that will be drawn towards you will produce unnecessary suffering that will not have any redemptive value for others. We are called to prophetically give ourselves in love for Girgashite enemies, but not when those Girgashites have made a conscious and collective decision to reject the invisible spiritual authority of Christ inside of you (Luke 10:16). If you don't curse them, the curse will come to you, and you will be spiritually destroyed along with them. As a matter of fact, the curse will destroy you before it destroys the Girgashite city. If you curse them instead, you will accelerate the time of the city's inevitable destruction, and you will prevent that city from hindering God's work in others before its unavoidable destruction. Ironically, cursing here works to save others, and it works to save yourself so that you may go on to save others (James 5:16-20).
After cursing the Girgashites, you must make like a bird and flee. Otherwise, the inevitable curse will make like a bird and come to you.
When JFK, RFK, and others in the Kennedy family began to manifest a true prophetic spirit, they began to change the spiritual direction of their Girgashite, catholic family. This led to the Girgashite spirit counterattacking. When JFK, RFK, and others failed to detach themselves completely from the catholic influence in their families, they drew in curses upon themselves that caused them to die before their time.
You may have noticed that both JFK and RFK died of shots (i.e.- "stings") to their brains. This is no coincidence. As we have said before, Girgashites are mind-oriented individuals. By sticking to their catholic traditions while being prophetic, JFK and RFK drew Girgashite wrath against their "brains", which is where the mind physically resides inside the body. By the way, JFK's brain was not buried along with his body, which is a symbolic figure of how the Girgashite, mind-oriented ways were able to survive the "attack" of JFK's prophetic ways.
According to Proverbs 26:2 quoted above, a curse can also come as a "swallow by flying". The word "swallow" was translated from the Hebrew word derowr, which is derived from a similar word meaning "liberty" or "a flowing, free run". Therefore, the "swallow" speaks of emotions that are allowed to flow unimpeded. As we have seen before, Hittites are distorters of prophetic emotions, while Canaanites are distorters of pastoral emotions (i.e.- the emotional desire to serve). This means that we draw in "swallow-style" curses when we allow our prophetic, emotional freedom to be distorted by Canaanites and Hittites. As we have seen before, this happens when we move in prophetic freedom without a foundation of righteousness.
JFK allowed his sense of freedom to be contaminated by the Hivite spirit, which, as we have said before, is very common in the children of well-to-do families. This Hivite tendency led to Canaanite practices such as his adulterous relationship with a famous Hollywood actress. This allowed a "swallow curse" to come flying his way.
The word "flying" in Proverbs 26:2 was translated from the word uwph, which differs from the word nuwd that was mentioned above. While nuwd has the connotation of "to and fro movement" (as when one is trying to escape from a persecuting danger), uwph has the connotation of a more "straightforward" movement. This means that "bird curses" flutter your way, while "swallow curses" fly straight towards you. The fact that JFK was hit by sniper fire as he sat by his wife in that famous Dallas motorcade is a prophetic figure of how his infidelity drew a "swallow bullet" that came directly against him.
In RFK's case, the Canaanite door for the "swallow curse" was much, much smaller than for JFK. RFK was a devoted husband and father to his many children. There was more of a compassionate, pastoral quality to RFK, and that created in him a bit of Canaanite naiveté over the inherent roots of unrighteousness underlying many of the poverty problems in America. As we have shared before, people with the Spirit of Service have a tendency to become so overly protective of "perceived victims" that they become resentful of anyone who dares to judge any possible root of unrighteousness in them, even when many of those "victim's" problems may be self-inflicted due to unresolved unrighteousness. When combined with the Perizzite spirit, such people become susceptible to con artists who prey on people's desire to help the "needy".
There were seeds of Canaanite naiveté in RFK's heart, but he did not live long enough to have them fully developed. Yet, those seeds served as a spiritual door that drew in a Palestinian murderer against him. Why? Because Palestinians have for decades skillfully played the "victim card" against the Israelites. Through outright deception and half-truths, they have portrayed themselves as innocent victims of "Jewish oppression", and have duped most of Europe and the liberals in America into taking their side.
It is evident that the greatest concentration of "Canaanite naiveté" in the U.S. can be found in the state of California. For example, Hollywood actors never seem to think twice about participating in charity events or in giving out money when the word "victim" is bandied about. California is also full of environmental activists who see animals and plants as helpless victims of corporate greed and corruption. Therefore, it is not coincidental that, shortly before dying, RFK's last words were, "On to California".
The "Canaanite naiveté", "flying swallow" window was somewhat open in RFK's life, but the window that most affected him was the "fluttering bird" window. This is why his killer was forced to "flutter" through the crowd in order to get to RFK and kill him, whereas JFK's killer got a more direct, "swallow bullet" shot at JFK. Apostles like RFK are more susceptible to fluttering-bird attacks, while prophets like JFK are more susceptible to flying-swallow attacks.
JFK's presidency marked the beginning of the 1960s, while RFK's death was one of the main events marking the end of the decade. In the meantime, America and the world allowed a tremendous prophetic door to be wasted away in the hippie and rebellion movements of the 1960s. The whole prophetic movement of the 1960s fell under a "flying-swallow" curse when the Church's lack of discernment allowed the enemy to "Canaanize" the whole movement.
After RFK was assassinated, the logical thing to expect was for younger brother Ted Kennedy to step up to the plate and continue in the prophetic spirit of his fallen brothers. Ted Kennedy, however, apparently got cold feet about being a major trendsetter in American politics, considering how that had gotten his older brothers killed. Therefore, he has resigned himself to being the senior Senator from Massachusetts ever since. He is a loud liberal voice who has developed a full-blown case of the Canaanite spirit.
By entering into conformity, Ted Kennedy "reconciled" himself with the Girgashite spirit that his brothers had fought against. As we have said before, Girgashites love methodologies and time-honored traditions, which slowly turns them into "spiritual gliders" whose main interest is to find a comfortable "niche" that does not demand too much of an emotional sacrifice. They may be workaholics where mental and physical tasks are concerned, but emotional sacrifice is just not their cup of tea. Once they reach a stable plateau of routine practices and traditions that produces a lot of "quantity", they stay there and are never willing to pay the price to take a radical, qualitative leap in their lives. At this stage, Girgashites forsake their prophetic calling in life and work hard in the natural realm while looking forward to a Hivite retirement that never pans out to be as long or as enjoyable as they thought it would be.
This is what has happened to Ted Kennedy, and this is the spiritual reason behind the incident with his ex-wife on March 29, 2005. His ex-wife's name is "Joan", which is related to the name "John". Not only was "John" the name of his prophetic brother JFK, but it is also a name that is associated in Scripture with the prophetic ministry. Therefore, the fact that Joan Kennedy was found lying on the street is a figure of how Ted Kennedy threw away his prophetic calling like so much garbage for fear that he would end up like his brothers. As we have said before, Girgashites have an inordinate fear of death, and they will do anything to "stay alive", even if it means losing their prophetic calling in life.
The fact that Joan Kennedy suffered a "cerebral commotion" points to how the catholic, Girgashite influence in the Kennedy family caused both JFK and RFK to be cursed to die by gunshots to the brain. The fact that Joan Kennedy fractured her right shoulder also has prophetic meaning. As we have said before, the shoulder in Scripture is a figure of prophetic intercession and of covering (not "covering up") the weaknesses of others in the Spirit. As we have also said before, the "right side" is associated in Scripture with concepts such as "judgments", "justice", "law", and "truth". Therefore, Joan Kennedy's fractured right shoulder speaks of how Ted Kennedy had a strong calling from God to be a priestly intercessor who covers the weaknesses of others, and it speaks of how he perverted that calling into an active Canaanite defense of values without any regard to God's judgments, righteousness, and truth. Just like any full-blown Canaanite, Ted Kennedy is bent on "humanistic mercy" and "soap-opera compassion", but is totally against judgments that may produce permanent results through temporary pain . RFK had seeds of Canaanite naiveté, but Ted Kennedy is a Canaanite whose behavior cannot be "justified" by naiveté.
Joan Kennedy's age of 68 also has prophetic significance. Why? Because it points to the year 1968, the year that RFK was killed. In a sense, when RFK died, Ted Kennedy's prophetic calling died with him. The name of Ted and Joan Kennedy's son, "Patrick Kennedy", also has prophetic meaning. According to a name-meaning site, the name "Patrick" means "nobleman", which speaks of "social status". Girgashites are bent on hierarchies, and they like to find a comfortable niche and stay there until they reach Hivite retirement. Therefore, the name of his son, "Patrick", is a good description of Ted Kennedy's final state after he threw away his prophetic calling (represented by Patrick's mother, Joan). By the way, Patrick Kennedy is also a Congressman.
There is a prophetic reason why Joan Kennedy was found on the street on March 29, 2005, and that reason can be found when we consider what happened 2 days later. On March 31, 2005, after 13 days without her feeding tube, Terri Schiavo finally rested from her sorrows. As we said in our previous word, the evangelical and catholic activists who fought to keep Terri alive were being moved by a belief that God's work can be achieved through Girgashite, natural means. We also saw how the catholic influence of Terri's parents was the driving force behind the cursed (Jeremiah 17:5) Girgashite nature of this movement.
As we were meditating on the Terri Schiavo situation on Sunday, March 28, 2005, the Lord impressed upon our hearts that Terri's collapse in 1990 -- which led to her 15 years of vegetative state -- was caused as she was subconsciously struggling to break free from the Girgashite influence of her catholic family. As a youngster, Terri had great struggles with obesity, and, as we have said before, obesity is spiritually related to the Girgashite spirit; exaggerated obesity is more related with the Canaanite spirit than with the Girgashite spirit, but cases of persistent "chubbiness", especially age-related chubbiness, is associated with the Girgashite spirit. Why? Because it is related to a spirit of Girgashite conformity where the person simply "lets him or herself go" and no longer cares to pay a price to stay fit. Exaggerated obesity is more related with the Canaanite spirit because it generally involves a persistent avoidance of the pain brought on by the judgment of others. The only way that exaggerated obesity can be overcome is by constantly exposing the person to the pain brought on by the righteous judgments and scrutiny of others.
Terri Schiavo's physical struggle with chubbiness was a physical manifestation of her parents' attempt to impose the "Girgashite way" on her. Her unwillingness to simply accept her chubbiness shows her underlying desire to shake off the Girgashite ways in her family. She was able to go down from 250 pounds to a mere 110 pounds, changing her physical appearance completely. This shows a tremendous spirit of self-sacrifice, which, as we have seen before, points to the prophetic ministry.
It is believed, however, that the dramatic change in Terri's physical appearance caused problems in her heart that eventually led to the massive heart attack which depleted her brain of oxygen and left her in a vegetable state. The "heart" speaks of the "will" and of "determination", while the "brain" speaks of the "mind". Therefore, Terri's heart attack speaks of how her parents' determined will to have her remain in the ways of the Girgashite mind were at the root of her physical condition.
The reason why Joan Kennedy was lying on the street two days before Terri finally rested is because the Kennedy curse and the Terri Schiavo case are spiritually similar. In both cases, one or more persons with a prophetic spirit rose up within the family and began to spiritually challenge the influence of the Girgashite spirit in the family. As the Girgashite spirit perceived this, it began attacking the prophetic members of the family. Since these members never fully committed themselves to fully "wiping off the Girgashite dust" because of emotional and mental attachments to the rest of the family, they drew in fluttering-bird and flying-swallow curses upon themselves.
If these prophetic family members had decided to conform themselves to the Girgashite ways of their families, their "tragic" deaths would have never happened -- just look at how long Ted Kennedy has hung around! Some might then conclude that it is better to conform than to confront. However, there is a popular saying that goes, "It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all", and this saying applies in the spiritual sense. As we have said before, the act of "loving" is most deeply connected to the prophetic ministry. Therefore, the saying can be rephrased as "It is better to have fought to live out our prophetic calling and been cursed than to have never fought at all". Obviously, this is not an excuse to suffer curses that can be avoided by "wiping off the Girgashite dust" and by cursing the Girgashites back.
Another example of a family curse brought on by Girgashite influences is the Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee situation. As we have said before, China is a country gripped by a strong influence of Girgashite traditions and methodologies. One of the many revered Chinese traditions was that kung fu should never be taught to foreigners. Bruce Lee, however, was a man with a God-given teacher calling but who was also a prophetic visionary. Upon arriving in America, he decided to teach kung fu to all without regard to race or color, which went against the Girgashite tendency to separate people into "hierarchies" . This offended most of the Chinese people who knew Bruce Lee and led to many spiritual (and even physical) attacks against him.
As the Girgashite spirits from his Chinese ancestry fought against Bruce Lee, they made his professional career very difficult in the U.S., which led to his unfortunate decision to return to Hong Kong to continue his career there. As he did so, he failed to fully "wipe off the Girgashite dust", which eventually led to the Girgashite curse killing him before his time. He died before he could see the days of the full-blown U.S. and worldwide success that he eventually reached. This unresolved curse hung around long enough to kill his son Brandon Lee who, as you may know, died in a "freak" accident while making the movie that ironically launched him to post-death stardom as well.
I have the Spirit's witness that, had JFK, RFK, JFK Jr., Terri Schiavo, Bruce Lee, and Brandon Lee not died in their "tragic" deaths, all of them would have lived to eventually enter into the fullness of God's prophetic calling for their lives. They would all have come to know the Lord Jesus in a very deep and abiding way, and they would all have been even mightier spiritual warriors.
Yesterday (April 2, 2005), a spiritual whore revered by the world died!!! Hallelujah!!! This religious figure, who is supposed to be a promoter of Jesus Christ, died before reaching his 85th birthday and before making his 105th international trip, as the Lord had declared would happen.
As you may recall, the Lord prompted us to say on the word posted on March 30, 2005 that Terri Schiavo would "definitely be dead within 3 days", which meant that she would have to be dead by April 2, 2005. Terri Schiavo died on March 31, 2005, the day after we posted the word on her (less than 24 hours later). We were curious, therefore, to understand why the Lord spoke to us about a 3-day interval when she died the next day. However, most of you may have noticed that there were some strange correlations between the Terri Schiavo situation and the religious leader's situation. Shortly after Terri's parents lost all hope of having Terri's feeding tube reinserted, the religious leader got a feeding tube inserted. While non-discerning Girgashite believers were fighting to keep Terri alive, Girgashite people around the world were fighting to keep the religious leader alive as well. However, while Terri had expressed her wishes not to be kept alive at all costs, the religious leader and all the little elves around him fought tooth and nail to keep him alive as long as possible. Because of all of this, I began to sense in my heart that the 3-day interval not only affected Terri but also involved the religious leader. Therefore, I was not surprised in my heart when I found out yesterday that this man was finally dead.
I jumped for joy when I heard the news!!! I sang songs of praise to the Lord!!! After 985 days of judgment prayer against this whore, he finally died. The prayers of billions of religious fools were not enough to withhold God's judgments against this man. The death of this whore has meant a tremendous spiritual victory in the heavenlies. A gaping hole has been opened in the stronghold of Girgashite religiosity in the air. Over the next 10 years, we will see the overflowing benefits and spiritual blessings of the death of the Roman little whore. I can only imagine the face of this whore as his soul approached God, expecting a great "crown of life", only to see the wrath of God kindled against him. He has been banished from God's presence for eternity. This man, who allowed himself to be called "Holy Father" has been relegated to the farthest corners, away from God's presence. This man accepted the religious protocol that demanded that all who approached him had to bow before him and kiss his filthy hand, and he is now a spiritual nobody, a shameful example of a "spiritual whore" for eternity. This man openly promoted the worship of statues all over the world, and now he has now been exposed in the spirit realm to be as worthless as any of the statues he taught others to worship. Just like Aaron at the end of his days, this whore has been stripped of his robe and been shown to be nothing more than a "naked fool" in the spirit realm:
"23And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying, 24Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah. 25Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor: 26And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son: and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall die there. 27And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. 28And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount. 29And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel." (Numbers 20:23-29)
An Italian newspaper labeled the Roman whore as "Friend of the world", and even believers seem to see such comments as "proof" of this man's "great legacy", but this is what the Scriptures have to say about people who deserve to be called "Friend of the world":
"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God" (James 4:4)
"25Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 26Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." (Luke 6:25-26)
It is amazing how the U.S. and international press has been paying continuous homage to this whore. I was even stunned that diehard, liberal news networks in the U.S. had nothing but compliments and praises for this man. Yes, the very anchormen and women who are so openly pro-abortion, pro-sexual freedom, pro-homosexuality, and who hate the word "God" with all of their hearts! Yes, these men and women don't find it difficult to say nice things about the religious whore. This goes to show how weak, non-threatening, and irrelevant this whore's spiritual message really was!!! He offended no one!!! He confronted no one!!! The only ones this coward ever dared "confront" were the zombie-like religious slaves who did anything he told them to do anyway!!
It is sad to see that they are now even attributing the fall of the Berlin Wall to him. I heard this shortly after the Lord prompted me to type the paragraph on JFK's speech at the Berlin Wall near the beginning of this article (those words were actually typed on Thursday, March 31, 2005). It was only after I typed those words under the Anointing that I really understood the invisible impact of JFK's life on the eventual fall of the Berlin Wall. If you want to give credit to someone for the fall of the Berlin Wall, give it to JFK, give it to Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev, and to all the brave NATO soldiers who stood up to the intimidating Russian bear!!!
I also heard that the whore is now responsible for the fall of communism in Poland!!! For crying out loud, if it had been up to the whore, a tyrant such as Saddam Hussein would still be in power today!!! It was the bravery of Lech Walesa and the Solidarity movement which led to the fall of the communist regime in Poland, not some coattail-riding religious mannequin!!!
I also heard that the whore is considered to be responsible for forging "social justice" around the world. Yet, this same whore visited with fidel castro in Cuba, shaking his hand and smiling with him without showing the least bit of repulsion at one of the most oppressive and loathsome leaders in Latin American history, and, believe you me, that is a tall statement to make when you consider Latin America's longstanding tradition of tyranny and repression!!!
According to reports, the whore died at 9:37pm local time. Shortly after his death, a sister in Christ called me up and told me that God had prompted her to look for a verse 37 in Psalm 9. Since Psalm 9 turned out to have 20 verses only, she decided to look at verse 17, and this is what she found:
"17The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. 18For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. 19Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. 20Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah." (Psalm 9:17-20)
[The word "hell" in verse 17 was translated from the Hebrew word sheol, which has a wider spiritual meaning than just the literal "hell"]
As you may recall in our word on "ROME", the Lord declared that all who would pray for the whore would be judged. It was therefore pathetic to see all the millions of Girgashites around the world who were praying to uphold the whore.
Not a single prayer in favor of that man will go unpunished, says the Lord, even the well-meaning prayers of men like George W. Bush, for I shall chastise all in the measure of their understanding and in the measure of their hard-heartedness. My wrath is against Edom, and I shall destroy her. My judgment against the Girgashite nations is here, and only a fool will want to stand in My way, says the Lord.
Notice how Psalm 9:17-20 contrasts the end of the "wicked" versus the end of the "needy". This points to what the Lord prompted us to share on Terri Schiavo and Luke 16:19-26. In the judicial realm, Johnny Cochran the lawyer was the "rich man" and Terri Schiavo was "Lazarus" the beggar. Why? Because, according to Luke 16:22, Lazarus died before the rich man, and the legal options to prolong Terri's physical existence "died" before Johnny Cochran did. In a wider spiritual sense, however, the religious whore was the "rich man" while Terri was "Lazarus". Why? Because Terri died first, and the whore died 3 days later, within the 3-day window which God had told us concerning Terri's death.
The sister who called me tried to find verse 37 of Psalm 9 but decided to stop at verse 17 because Psalm 9 only has 20 verses. However, I told the sister that we should consider Psalm 10 as a continuation of Psalm 9, which would mean that verse 17 of Psalm 10 would be equivalent to "Psalm 9:37", so to speak. This is what that verse declares:
"17LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: 18To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress." (Psalm 10:17-18)
While statesmen and notable religious leaders prayed for the whore, a few anonymous and "irrelevant" remnant believers were praying for his downfall, and the prayer of the weak and "humble" few (v17) prevailed over the prayers of the great and mighty ones. Notice also how verse 18 speaks of the "man of the earth" oppressing no more, which is a direct reference to the Girgashite spirit of earthliness oppressing God's prophetic people no more.
For some time, we have been praying for the downfall of various men. The first one to fall was Saddam Hussein in April of 2003. In a figurative sense, the second one to fall was fidel castro, who literally fell on October 20, 2004. Yet, we await his literal, shameful death before the end of this year. Every time we pray for these men to fall, the Lord prompts us to ask for shame to accompany their fall. We have seen how shameful Saddam looked when he came out of his spider hole, and we have seen how shameful and laughable fidel castro's fall and fracture was; fidel has not been the same ever since. The third one to fall is now the Roman whore, and I have been delighted to see his grimacing face and slouched position as he pathetically withered before our eyes. The Lord prompted us to pray for him to vomit over himself, and we were blessed to hear reports that it did happen!!! This whore's slow death was ugly and pathetic to behold. Oh, how the mighty have fallen!!! Oh, how the revered men have fallen into shame!!!
The fall of each of these men unleashes powerful ripple effects in the spirit realm. The whore's fall signifies the fall of the catholic stronghold. 10 years from now, it will become evident to most that the catholic church will be nothing more than a "shell" of what it has been until now. The whore's fall has paved the way for the future revival of Italy and Eastern Europe, and it has incredible, unseen ripple effects over the Girgashite spirit in all the Earth. Saddam Hussein's fall has opened the way for the future revival of Israel and the Arab world, and fidel castro's future death will contribute to the eventual burial of Latin America's "evangelical revival", and it will pave the way for the eventual revivals of Brazil, Argentina, and/or Uruguay.
The fall of the religious whore means that the spiritual door of liberation will be opened for many "weak" but faithful believers whose prophetic spirit has made them prisoners and victims of Girgashite and Hittite oppression and persecution. The fall of the religious whore will enable many people around the world to overcome curses like the Kennedy curse so that generational Girgashite barriers may be broken and God's Glory be manifested in many places.
Because of an e-mail that a visitor sent to us on February 10, 2005, the Lord prompted us to post the word on "ROME" on Saturday, February 12, 2005. Exactly 7 weeks later, on Saturday, April 2, 2005, the Roman whore died. If you take February 12 as day #1, April 2 would be day #50, which, as we have said before, speaks of Pentecost and the outpouring of the Spirit, and it also speaks of the year of spiritual liberation:
"And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family." (Leviticus 25:10)
New York City woke up under a dreary, rainy sky yesterday as God's Spirit worked to quell the religious people's desire to pray for the whore, and nearby New Jersey areas have experienced severe flooding. Just as the Lord literally drowned the whore to death, so is the Lord drowning the Girgashite spirit across the Earth. There is a prophetic reason why God sent so much rain and flooding to the New York area as the whore died. Those with ears will hear what the Lord will do in these latter days.
"3Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God. 4Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah. 5Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. 6Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools. 7They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God." (Psalm 84:3-7)
[The word "sparrow" was translated from the same Hebrew word tsippowr that is translated as "bird" in Proverbs 26:2. The word "Baca" in verse 6 literally means "weeping" in Hebrew.]
