As I sat doing this drawing, many things floated through me about these people: The Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

 

 

He [God] talked about renewing their strength, their hope and their resolve. They have been in the field for many years, praying and sacrificing for the people. The picture is of the Red Horse who has basically given its all. The color of the red horse is turning black as if sloughing a skin, with the black appearing underneath. As these horses turn black, their countenance will also become like their color. The message is being shouted still, but the messages are now of judgments and proclamations.


All of the Horses are given the Gift of Iron. It allows them not to be swayed by sorrow or pity at those who would beg when the time of begging is long since past. As I finish the drawing, I understand that the reason the eyes are not shown is because they
[the believers in the Church system] have no right to see beyond the veil into the honored-ones' eyes. Just as Moses wore a veil, so too do these horsemen.

 

The Black horse will run his course, and, as the red disappears, the green will appear and run concurrently with the black, following it, if you will. The Black will go into an area and then leave after pronouncement of the judgment, and the green is the result.

 

In the end... the Heathen nation shall give the Jeremiahs their freedom, unlocking their prison where they had been incarcerated and alone for so long, saying, "Your God told us to set you free". Once they come out, only then, will the ones who obey find them; not before. As Jeremiah was allowed his freedom, so too were the ones who listened to him allowed to remain free. These ministers will then be allowed, once true repentance has come to the backslidden, to minister. But they [the people of God] must learn to fear the Lord first.

 

This is what he has shown me and this is what I give to you.

I found it interesting that he was not able to speak to me through the entire day of xmas. I was told by a Christian that people who have visions have familiars. It brought confirmation of the lies being told in the church and its stench has truly reached heaven.

 

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1)

 

"Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay" (Jeremiah 20:9)

 

"I fear God... and none else! It's time the people share my dread"

 

 

Our comments

A tired and abandoned remnant

The drawing by sister Paula is a vivid illustration of the sacrifice that God's prophetic remnant has made. In the silence of anonymity, away from the glamorous spotlight of human glory, there has been a remnant suffering, paying a heavy price as they fight for the manifestation of God's latter-rain glory. Rejected by the religious structures and indifferently unsupported by the "fence straddlers", the remnant has been left to "fend for itself". And, in the middle of that loneliness, the remnant has been "wasting away", like an injured man slowly bleeding to death. While the blessing-seekers are readily given shelter under the roof of the glory-seekers, God's prophetic remnant remains out in the cold, and no one has been willing to stick his or her neck out for them. Those who are aware of the remnant and who have the material and emotional resources to help them have simply washed their hands and said, "If God is with them, let God help them; if it is God's will for them to prosper, let God prosper them. We will not go out on a limb for them".

 

In the midst of their wasting away and their despair, the remnant has cried out to the Lord,

 

"15My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 16For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. 18They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 19But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 21Save me from the lionís mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns." (Psalm 22:15-21)

 

The remnant has given their all, and the Lord is pleased with them, for in their wasting away, blood is being sown into the ground that will be reaped as a mighty harvest in which God's purposes shall be fulfilled in His Church and in the entire Earth. As God smiles upon His dying remnant, His wrath is accumulating against those who have proactively attacked His remnant and against those who have been negligent in helping them. There are many in the Body of Christ who are sympathetic to the remnant spirit, but they have been unwilling to make the final leap of faith into the "unknown", and, by doing so, they have left God's remnant "hanging out to dry", exposed to satan and his throng.

 

As we have studied before, the word used in the New Testament to describe judas iscariot's betrayal of Jesus is the Greek word paradidomi, which literally means "to give over, deliver up". In other words, judas iscariot did not physically drive nails into the Lord's wrists; he did not beat Jesus in the face; he did not place a crown of thorns on His head. "All" he did was to turn his back on Jesus and hand Him over to the people who would do all of that. Fellow believer, a permanent state of stagnant indifference is equivalent to staunch opposition in the eyes of the Lord.

 

"23He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. 24When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first." (Luke 11:23-26)

 

A change in the shout

In the prophetic word that the Lord gave to sister Paula, God declares that...

"The message is being shouted still, but the messages are now of judgments and proclamations"

 

God's red-horse riders come to shout an audible warning that calls people to separate themselves from Cain and his ways. But, as that warning is ignored, the shout of warning morphs into an invisible shout of black-horse judgments that create a sense of scarcity and emptiness in those who chose to stick with Cain (who by now has morphed into a "Balaam"). While the red horse shouts out a warning through teaching, the black horse shouts out a warning through judgments, giving people one last chance to leave the structures of man and seek after God in the lonely "wilderness". Those who refuse to heed this second warning will be enveloped by the utter death and desolation brought on by the next horse of the Apocalypse: the green horse ridden by "Death", with "Sheol" behind him (Revelation 6:7-8). The green horse comes with irrevocable proclamations of earthquake destruction.

 

The gift of Iron

As we have said before, "bronze" in Scripture is a figure of purifying judgments, while "iron" is a figure of corrective judgments. Therefore, the "gift of iron" referred to in the prophetic word means that the remnant will not hesitate to pronounce corrective spiritual judgments that shatter the hardened stubbornness of man:

 

"7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potterís vessel. 10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him." (Psalm 2:7-12)

 

Notice God's call to "kiss the son" (v12). In Scripture, "kissing" is a figure of soul communion. Therefore, the Lord is making a call for people's souls to embrace and support His Son as He manifests Himself in His weak-looking remnant:

 

"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matthew 25:40)

 

According to Psalm 2:12 above, those who refuse to provide soul comfort to the visible Son clothed in human weakness shall have to deal with the invisible Son clothed in heavenly authority. Fellow believer, this applies to the Son of God in you. As you grow in the Lord, a "dichotomy" is made evident in you. As you apparently grow weaker and weaker in your natural self, the spirit-being in you grows stronger and more devastating. The enemy will feel inevitably compelled to attack you as you grow weaker and weaker, but that will only serve to unleash greater spiritual judgment from you to utterly destroy him.

 

"9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things." (2 Corinthians 6:9-10)

 

According to Psalm 2, the rod of iron shall come against those who refuse to recognize the eternal God-value in the weak-looking son of man. As the prophetic word declares, this "rod of iron" will not be contaminated with human mercy. It shall ruthlessly come against those who refused to heed the humble teacher-warning of the red horse and the invisible judgment-warning of the black horse.

 

While many at church sing upbeat praise songs that talk about the "army of God" described in Joel chapters 1 and 2, few in the Body of Christ have cared to notice what the Lord says about that army. Most songwriters in the Church prefer to stick to the "nice" verses of Joel 1 and 2 when they are writing their songs, a typical case of "SSMS" (Selective Scriptural Memory Syndrome):

 

"5Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. 6For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. 7He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white. 8Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth. 9The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORDíS ministers, mourn. 10The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. 11Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished" (Joel 1:5-11)

[Notice the reference to the "wheat" and the "barley" (v11), which points to the scarcity brought about by the black horse of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:6). Notice also how God's latter-day army shall cause the Church to "lament like a virgin" for the "husband of her youth" (v8), which is a figure of how God shall kill the "Balaams" the believers are "sleeping with", i.e.- the Church leaders whom believers call "lord" ("Baal"), and who therefore supplant God's Lordship in their hearts (Hosea 2:1-11).]

 

Habakkuk is a book that many prophets like to quote because of the verse that declares that the knowledge of the glory of God shall fill all the Earth, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14). However, most prophets --- gripped by SSMS --- fail to consider what God says in Habakkuk about the spiritual army that will make Habakkuk 2:14 a reality:

 

"7They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves. 8Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat. 9They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand. 10And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it. 11Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god." (Habakkuk 1:7-11)

[Notice how verse 7 declares that their judgment and their dignity shall "proceed of themselves". This means that this latter-day army will issue judgments without the support of human structures. They shall issue these judgments and stand on the awareness of their God-given spiritual value, even when all the religious structures around them deny their value and their right to exercise spiritual authority. They will not have a "letter from their pastor" authorizing them to make judgments. They will say, "The witness of the Holy Spirit certifies my value and my authority to declare judgments, and there is no man or institution who can squelch (Amos 2:13) the exercise of that authority".

 

Notice also how God's latter-day army will have little respect for the human glory of the Church's kings (v10). That army's soldiers shall profane the "holy cows" which the Church so staunchly reveres (Isaiah 43:27-28), and they shall point all to "their God" (v11), i.e.- the One and Only God of Israel whom they have come to know in the lonely wilderness.]

 

As the prophetic word declares, this latter-day army will not be "swayed by sorrow or pity at those who would beg when the time of begging is long since past". God is a merciful God who gives people plenty of time and opportunity to listen and repent, but He will not wait forever for the stubborn hearts in the Church to repent. There is no more time for waiting, for time is up, and the fulfillment of His prophetic word is at hand. The more we wait, the more souls will be lost and the more lives will be wasted away. It is in the latter-rain revival that God's Glory shall be manifested on Earth (Habakkuk 2:14), but that revival requires the operation of a "merciless" army of angel-believers who will not indolently allow chronos time to continue ticking while kairos time remains still.

 

The veil

The prophetic word declares that the horsemen wear a "veil" that prevents the religious Church from seeing their eyes. This veil points to the following passage:

 

"12Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 13And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 14But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 15But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. 16Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. 17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2 Corinthians 3:12-18)

 

Because the Church has refused to seek God Himself in the lonely wilderness, and has chosen instead to seek after visible leaders and visible structures, the veil that was rent when Yeshua died on the cross (Matthew 27: 51) remains in the Church's hearts. The work that Yeshua did on the cross, which was intended to yield us direct access to God, has gone for naught. Like the Israelites who came out of Egypt (but whose hearts returned to Egypt --- Acts 7:39, Nehemiah 9:17), the Church has returned to the slavery of the Old Covenant in their hearts, seeking after human captains to lead them. Therefore, those who have placed their faith in the "Church system" have not truly come to know God, and they have denied themselves the privilege of recognizing Him when He manifests Himself wrapped in human weakness, as was the case when Yeshua walked upon this Earth.

 

On the contrary, those of you who have chosen to walk under the anointing of the horses of the Apocalypse have been willing to seek after God Himself, and, by doing so, you are exposing yourself to a constant impartation of God's very nature into your life (2 Corinthians 3:17-18). You then become a walking manifestation of God Himself on Earth. You become an "Immanuel" --- God among us. When this happens, however, you can rest assured that those who believe in "Church" (instead of believing in Christ) will not recognize God in you, for the veil remains upon their hearts, and they are unable to see the God-potential in the son of man (John 3:13-15). As you become an Immanuel, you will begin to emanate the Glory of God out to the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth through your very physical existence on Earth, and you will become an instrument through whom Habakkuk 2:14 shall be fulfilled.

 

As we have said before, the true rapture prophesied in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 refers to believers who heed the spiritual shout of God Himself and who go up to be joined with Him in the spiritual "epi-synagogue" mentioned in the Greek text of 2 Thessalonians 2:1. As you are joined with Him, God will begin to shout through you, and when you shout, it will be God Himself shouting, and only those who are after God Himself shall hear your shout and join you in the rapture. While the Church is waiting for a literal rapture that will leave cars "driver-less" and cause accidents in the major highways around the world, the true rapture is already happening in the spirit realm, and only those with a heart longing after God are becoming aware of it. It is through this ongoing spiritual rapture that the knowledge of the Glory of God shall fill the Earth.

 

Black and green

The prophetic word given by God to sister Paula declares that the green horse will appear with the black horse, running "concurrently" with it, following it. This confirmed something that God had been speaking into our hearts. The green horse is ridden by "Death" (Revelation 6:7), and, as the black-horse judgments of warning are unleashed, green-horse Death will begin to be manifested. This is what happened with the 5 black-horse judgments that God unleashed upon the Earth in August 2005. Not only did those judgments cause black-horse emptiness, scarcity, and wandering; they also caused the literal green-horse deaths of many. As the black horse's gallop goes unheeded, the green horse's death toll will continue to rise, for the green horse comes to exterminate the Sin System, not to "regulate" it. Like the Israelites, the previous generations in the Church have been willing to tolerate unrighteousness, as long as it does not get "out of hand".

 

"28And it came to pass, when Israel was strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly drive them out. 29Neither did Ephraim drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer; but the Canaanites dwelt in Gezer among them. 30Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, nor the inhabitants of Nahalol; but the Canaanites dwelt among them, and became tributaries. 31Neither did Asher drive out the inhabitants of Accho, nor the inhabitants of Zidon, nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of Aphik, nor of Rehob: 32But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: for they did not drive them out. 33Neither did Naphtali drive out the inhabitants of Bethshemesh, nor the inhabitants of Bethanath; but he dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: nevertheless the inhabitants of Bethshemesh and of Bethanath became tributaries unto them. 34And the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the mountain: for they would not suffer them to come down to the valley: 35But the Amorites would dwell in mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they became tributaries. 36And the coast of the Amorites was from the going up to Akrabbim, from the rock, and upward." (Judges 1:28-36)

[The name "Dan" literally means "judge". Therefore, the fact that "the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the mountain" (v34) is a figure of how the Amorites were able to drive out God's righteous judgments from the Church because the Church was not determined to annihilate the "Canaanites" (i.e.- judgment-hating unrighteousness) from its midst. God, however, is raising up the "house of Joseph", a spiritual remnant with the "sign-of-Jonah" anointing that will prevail over the Amorite kings (v35) and conquer the Church back unto God -- the One and True King.

 

The believers in America who kept giving excuses for the Canaanite influences in the land are responsible for the "children of Dan" having to flee to the mountain, and they shall be judged for it.]

 

The latter-rain generation, however, truly believes in the manifestation of the "new man" that was created "after God" in "righteousness and true holiness" (Ephesians 4:24). This "new man" in us is more than just a "good man". It is a "sinless and holy man" that is capable of walking in God's nature because he was created "after" (i.e.- according to) God. The latter-rain generation believes in a manifestation of a God-righteousness so overwhelming that it can crush and annihilate all the structures of Sin around it. The latter-rain generation does not believe in a "nice and accommodating" Church that does "laudable" community work and helps to raise up "healthy" families and neighborhoods. The latter-rain generation believes in a spiritually devastating Church that can cause spiritual "fiery coals" to rain down from heaven and can shake the foundations of the Earth. Through black-horse "coal" judgments and green-horse "earthquake" devastation, the Sin System will be exterminated, and the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth shall be renewed unto God.

 

The "heathen" liberator

Towards the end of the prophetic word given to sister Paula, the Lord says a very peculiar thing:

"In the end... the Heathen nation shall give the Jeremiahs their freedom, unlocking their prison where they had been incarcerated and alone for so long, saying, "Your God told us to set you free"

 

This points to the following passage:

 

"11Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying, 12Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee. 13So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, and all the king of Babylonís princes; 14Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home: so he dwelt among the people." (Jeremiah 39:11-14)

 

When the Chaldeans were sent by God to invade Israel, their king, Nebuchadnezzar, took special care to treat Jeremiah well. This means that the "heathen" king treated the Jewish prophet Jeremiah better than the Jewish people themselves! This is a spiritual figure of how the latter-day remnant shall be hosted and given "rest and relaxation" by a nation that seems to be "far away from God" to the natural eye. The Church and her many "ministries" are too busy doing humanitarian religious work, and they have no time to tend to God's desires and visions. They are so busy that they have no time to nurture and shelter His remnant, who are the physical manifestations of God's desires and visions on Earth. They are too busy enjoying the temporary prosperity of their religious feasts; they have no time or interest in tending to the poor but righteous "Lazarus" dying outside (Luke 16:19-31). They are too busy enabling the unrighteous, and they have no time to enable the "2 blind men by the wayside" (Matthew 20:29-34).

 

Therefore, God shall visit the continent of Europe; yes, that old continent reviled as "dark" and "spiritually cold" by America. For America was given a chance in 2005 to open her doors to God's latter-rain revival, but America was too busy in her institutionalised religiosity to see the sign of Jonah. America has been sentenced to a 4-year delay in which God will chastise America's faith in institutionalised religion. In the meantime, the Lord shall start a mighty spiritual work in the "heathen" continent of Europe, a work that would have been easier for Europe had America been willing to cooperate, for America was called to sow so that Europe could reap. America, however, was too selfishly concerned about her stupid "Fellowship Centres" and "Cultural Centres" to pave the way for the "dead" continent of Europe. While the Church in America was using its faith to "seize" their brand new cars and their brand new mega-temples, a suffering remnant in Europe has been desperately crying out to God, longing for His visitation. And they shall receive that visitation, says the Lord, for His heart burns for the "dead" continent of Europe, the continent of Hus and Luther and Wycliffe (and even Erasmus). God's heart burns for the U.K., the land of Cromwell, Salmon, Whitefield, and Livingston, the land where the God of Judgments is known, the land with the great portal in the sky through which the 1904 Wales revival entered the Earth, that land of green pastures that oozes with prophetic mysticism, that land that has been destined to see a mighty visitation from the Lord of Hosts. Rejoice, o Benjamin, o you little one, for God has His eyes set on you, and He shall come upon you. The land that abides in darkness shall see a great light, for the Lord shall visit her from on high, and the nations of the Earth shall see the Glory of the coming of the Lord.

 

A word for the horsemen

In the prophetic word, the Lord pronounces Romans 8 over the horsemen. This is because those of you who choose to act as God's horsemen are operating in the Law of the Spirit of Life. With the 2-witness apostolic-prophetic anointing over you, you have bound yourself under God's apostolic law, and you have allowed yourself to move in the freedom of God's prophetic Spirit of life. You no longer move under the condemnation of the Old Covenant, and you are therefore free from the law of sin and death. You no longer live under the subtle Sin System upheld by the pastoral soul matriarchy, and your righteousness is derived from the Spirit, not from religious affiliation and activities, which are all under the law of the flesh, pious as they may seem.

 

"1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." (Romans 8:1-4)

 

As we have said before, the last 3 horses of the Apocalypse operate under the umbrella of the first horse, the white horse. This is the conquering horse, the horse that goes out to conquer the Church and the world back unto God. Therefore, the white-horse riders are aware that we are called to inherit and possess the nations of the Earth, and they know that their ultimate inheritance is God Himself.

 

"17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." (Romans 8:17-19)

[The word "manifestation" was translated from the Greek word apokalypsis, which is the name in Greek for the book of Revelation (i.e.- "Apocalypse"). The book of Revelation is about the manifestation of Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1), and, as He is manifested, the "sons of God" are manifested with Him. Both manifestations are inextricably intertwined, for the "sons of God" are those who have the nature of the Son grafted into them and who have become One with the Son. There is only One seed (Galatians 3:16-17).]

 

As we have shared before, the Church is prone to "worshipping angels" (Colossians 2:18). It is a "pool of Bethesda" full of lame and crippled people who revere and depend on intermediary angels to "stir the waters" for them (John 5:1-4). These revered "angels" are the Church's "reverends". The believers with the white-horse anointing, however, understand that we are all members of One Body that is not divided by a static hierarchy (1 Corinthians 12:12), and that all members are to help and enable each other through roles dynamically determined in the Anointing. White-horse riders understand that we are here to edify and exalt each other unto union with God (Ephesians 4:12-13), not to rule over and control each other (Matthew 20:25-28). We are to lay ourselves down on the ground and serve as bridges that others may walk on so that they may reach the Promise of Oneness with God. Instead of acting as bridges that connect to God, the Church's religious structures have acted as barriers that permanently separate from God. Cursed be the "ministers" who have been separating the son of Adam from Him!!! The white-horse riders pay no attention to the Church's separating barriers, for they know that nothing has the authority to separate them from God:

 

"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. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:31-37)

[Notice how white-horse believers are willing to share in Christ's sufferings in order to see others restored (v36). When we are willing to do this, we cross "Adam's bridge", and we move from the first Adam to the last Adam. Once we cross that bridge, we ourselves can serve as a bridge for others. We then become "living bridges unto eternal life".]

 

The fact that Romans chapter 8 speaks about all these things is no coincidence. As we have said before, the number "8" in Scripture speaks of "regeneration". Through His white-horse riders, God will regenerate the Earth and all of creation.

 

Steely Phil

Fellow believer, in order for you to be a regenerating horseman, you must have a forehead harder than flint:

 

"7But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted. 8Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads. 9As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. 10Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears. 11And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear." (Ezekiel 3:7-11)

[The word "adamant" was translated from the Hebrew word shamiyr, which is derived from the word shamar, meaning "to keep, guard, observe". Therefore, the word "adamant" has the connotation of a watchman who does not rest and who persistently stares out into the night until his "vision of the sunrise" takes place.]

 

Notice that God was not sending Ezekiel to deal with the "heathen", "pagan" nations of the Earth. He sent him to speak to the "house of Israel", which is stubborn and refuses to hear. God's white-horse riders know that the world cannot be conquered unto God if the Church itself is not conquered first (Revelation 6:2). Those who are "more than conquerors" (Romans 8:37) shall conquer the Church first, and that is where they shall face the toughest opposition. In order to destroy the way of Cain, the error of Balaam, and the contradiction of Korah (Jude 1:11), the horsemen require a steely determination to fight against an entire spiritual system that derives its sense of validity from its human acceptance and greatness. To be a horseman, you must be willing to be like the lonely lion fighting against the multitude of shepherds (Isaiah 31:4, Isaiah 63:5), with no human acceptance or human greatness to "back you up".

 

To birth the latter-rain revival, you must be consumed by a desire to see the purposes of God fulfilled in your brethren. This means that you must have the spirit of "Philadelphia". As we have seen before, the word philadelphia literally means "brotherly [soul] love". This means that your soul must be willing to shed itself for your "brother". Your "brother" is the invisible son or daughter of God inside the other person. Therefore, to have "brotherly love" means to have a deep affection for the God-potential in others, even in those who have yet to know the Lord. A righteous brother will not hesitate to sacrifice himself to see his other brothers exalted and reach their potential. Why? Because he never loses sight of that potential, hidden as it may be. He is like a watchman who will not rest until the God-potential in others is fully manifested.

 

The word "adamant" in Ezekiel 3:9 above was translated from the Hebrew word shamiyr, which is derived from the word shamar, meaning "to keep, guard, observe". Therefore, the word "adamant" has the connotation of a watchman who does not rest and who persistently stares out into the night until his "vision of the sunrise" is fulfilled. To be a horseman, you must be willing to stare into the spiritual darkness of the Church and visualize the manifestation of God's glorious light, no matter how impossible that manifestation may seem. You must be a "Steely Phil" consumed by philadelphia brotherly love who is willing to face and destroy all the unrepenting enemies of that potential. That "destroying" is done through your unleashing of spiritual judgments that are not tainted by the menstruation of human mercy. You must be willing to be hated and reviled, even by the brethren you are giving yourself for, and you must not harbor any compassion towards the men and women who arrogantly stand in front of God and say, "We will do things our way here; we don't need your ways here, just your blessings". Cursed are those who entrench themselves against the Coming One, and who do so in the name of God!!! Cursed are those who refuse to recognize God when He is standing before them, clothed in human weakness!!!

 

"12These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. 14And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 15To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 16These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having menís persons in admiration because of advantage. 17But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh." (Jude 1:12-23)

 

A word for the nation

In the prophetic word given to sister Paula, the Lord pronounces Jeremiah 4:19-22 against the nation of America:

 

"19My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. 20Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. 21How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet? 22For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge." (Jeremiah 4:19-22)

 

God raised the "standard" (v21) of the bronze serpent, but America was unable to see it. God sounded the trumpet of warning, but America was unable to hear it. Why? Because the Church in America is "wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge" (v22). The word "evil" in verse 22 was translated from the Hebrew word raa, which, as we have seen before, has the connotation of "affliction, unpleasantness, oppression". Therefore, the word "evil" in verse 22 is referring to more than "moral evil". It is actually referring to the Girgashite spirit of religiosity that lives by its cursed methods of oppression. The Church is "wise to do evil" in the sense that it is very good at burdensome religious methodology, but it is not good at "doing good" (v22), which involves doing justice to the spiritual "widows" who have no visible covering of human importance over them (Luke 18:1-8).

 

A word for the land

In the prophetic word given to sister Paula, the Lord pronounces Jeremiah 5 against the land of America. Land points to "earthliness", which in turn points to the Girgashite spirit. On the other hand, the number "5" points to "ministerial grace". Therefore, Jeremiah 5 is God's indictment against the "ground-swell of Girgashite support" within the Church that has allowed the "ministers" to prolong their Amorite monarchy over the Church, thereby delaying the advent of God's Kingship over His people.

 

"12And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him. 13And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 15And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 16But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full." (Genesis 15:12-16)

 

We are now in the time of the "fourth generation". As we have said before, we are on the threshold of the 4th prophetic movement that will usher in the prophesied latter-rain revival. The iniquity of the Amorite glory-seekers in the Church is already full, and the time has come for them to be dethroned. Yet the Church remains at the edge, unwilling to step through the threshold and into the fullness of God's calling. Why? Because she knows that she must shed her old garments as she crosses that threshold, and she is too enamored with her old and worthless coat. She continues to support the Saul structures, even after Saul has already been discarded by God (1 Samuel 15:26-28). Even though Saul is the source of her spiritual oppression and disgrace (1 Samuel 14:24-30, 1 Samuel 31:1-7), she continues to support him, because Saul hands out the "goodies" she likes (1 Samuel 15:9), and because Saul continues to hold the visible signs of authority that make her feel that she is protected and taken-care-of under his wings, despite the fact that the invisible anointing is no longer over him (1 Samuel 16:13-14). All of this prevents the David in each believer from being manifested, which in turn prevents the "tabernacle of David" from being restored (Amos 9:10-15).

 

This is what the Lord says to the "land" in Jeremiah 5:

 

"1Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it. 2And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear falsely. 3O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return." (Jeremiah 5:1-3)

[Notice how the Church has hardened its face against the Lord (v3). Therefore, those who come in His Name have their faces hardened even more when confronting the Church.]

 

Notice the Lord's focus on finding a man who "executes judgment" and who "seeks the truth" (v1). God looked within the Church in America for a significant group of believers (Genesis 18:32) willing to judge all Canaanite unrighteousness in all its forms, and the "Latin American" flavor of unrighteousness served as His defining parameter. Why? Because Latin America, as a region, is a spiritual Saul, a spiritual castaway that continues to glory in a spiritual "revival" that is all fluff and no substance, and America was, in November 2000, on the verge of joining Latin America as a spiritual castaway. But God had mercy on America because of a faithful remnant that sensed the danger and cried out to the Lord. George W. Bush's narrow victory in that month's elections certified that America would not go down the same "Gore-y" terror-hole of Hittite purposelessness that Latin America eventually fell into 32 months later (on June 29, 2003).

 

Acts of unrighteousness such as literal adultery, literal theft, and literal fornication are going on throughout the Church in America, and in the Church around the world. Even though such obvious unrighteousness must be dealt with, the Lord is constantly pointing to roots of unrighteousness that go much deeper than that. But, when the Church turns around to see what God is pointing at, the Church becomes puzzled, and she looks back at God to say, "I don't see anything there. What is wrong there?". The reason why the Church is unable to see the deep roots of unrighteousness is because she does not have the "exterminator zeal". As long as the visible problems are dealt with, she quickly becomes satisfied. She is not interested in deep-cutting judgment transformations. She is only interested in "happy and exciting" church activity; she is not interested in making the sacrifice required to find God's deep wisdom, and she is therefore insensitive to the deep judgments of God. She stubbornly makes excuses for the unrighteousness that is pointed out to her. She has made her face "harder than a rock" (Jeremiah 5:3), and she refuses to adapt to God's judgments.

 

God's warnings were even refused by those within the Church in America who were sympathetic to the remnant spirit, which makes America's case all the more tragic, because there were people who had the potential to hear the warnings and sound the spiritual "alarm" to those around them:

 

"4Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God. 5I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds." (Jeremiah 5:4-5)

 

As a result, God shall unleash the full combined spectrum of His horse-judgments on the land of America:

 

"Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased." (Jeremiah 5:6)

[The word "evenings" was mistranslated from the Hebrew word arabah, which literally means "desert"]

 

The lion, the wolf, and the leopard are spiritual figures of the last 3 horses of the Apocalypse attacking simultaneously:

  1. The lion that slays refers to the actions of His red horse, because the red horse comes with a sword.

     

  2. The desert wolf that spoils refers to the actions of His black horse, because the black horse sends judgments from the desert that consume the temporal prosperity of those who refused to come out to the desert.

     

  3. In order to understand the leopard, we must revisit the nature of God's green-horse riders. As we have said before, green-horse riders are resurrected prophets. They are spiritual "Josephs" who "resurrect" out of their Sheol prisons, who "reappear" after being "left for dead" (Genesis 42:38, Genesis 44:20).

     

    According to Genesis 49:24, the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel, upheld him despite all the injuries his enemies caused him. Therefore, Joseph had a strong pastoral (i.e.- shepherd) impartation from God Himself, who acted as his Shepherd in the moments when there was no one else to help him (Ezekiel 34:11-16, Psalm 23:1). And, just as the Lord was a pastor to him, Joseph was also a pastor to his brothers and to his father, providing for them during their time of need (Genesis 44:1, Genesis 45:21-28), even when they had not been there for him in his time of need.

     

    From all of this, we can conclude that green-horse riders (like Joseph) are prophet-pastors, which reveals their strong "watchman" nature. They are prophetic watchmen in the sense that they stand in high places to see the coming vision of God in the horizon, and they are pastoral watchmen in the sense that they look over and care for their brethren, as a shepherd looks over the sheep.

     

    Therefore, the leopard that watches over the cities refers to the actions of the green horse.

 

The Lord has already unleashed full-blown red- and black-horse actions against America, but a full-blown green-horse action is still in the horizon. The leopard is about to strike, and its impact is sure to be felt. God will continue to attack the land of America with the lion, the wolf, and the leopard during the next 3+ years, which will slowly erode the hardened ground-swell of Girgashite support that keeps the Amorites in control of the Church in America. The lion, the wolf, and the leopard will act like waves eroding a beach.

 

Many in America may think that words like the ones above are "empty threats", but this is what the Lord says about that:

 

"7How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlotsí houses. 8They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbourís wife. 9Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?" (Jeremiah 5:7-9)

[Those that the people swear by but who "are not gods" (v7) are the Amorite ministers that believers in the Church continue to uphold. Those that were "fed to the full" and who went on to commit adultery (v7) are the many ministers (like the "Dallas minister") who began well, moving in the prophetic-remnant spirit and who were prospered by God, only to betray God by becoming like the very people they were raised up to fight against, handing the faithful remnant over to the wolves they were supposed to protect them from. Does anyone really know how angry God's soul is at the "ministers" in America who betrayed Him? Does anyone really understand how angry God's soul is at the Church in America for backing these men and women, adulating them instead of worshiping God and God alone?]

 

"11For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD. 12They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: 13And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them. 14Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them." (Jeremiah 5:11-14)

[Verse 12 points to America's spirit of denial. God is against the prophetic spirit that denies the need for total regeneration, claiming that the Church in America only needs "adjustments".]

 

Spiritually (and literally), the Lord has sent people to America who speak an "incomprehensible" language, a spiritual language that the traditional Church does not speak and cannot understand. Using that spiritual language, they are launching green-horse prophetic arrows with their mouths that shall unleash Sheol upon the land, causing earthquakes that shall swallow up Korah and his followers.

 

"15Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say. 16Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men. 17And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword." (Jeremiah 5:15-17)

 

As we share in a previous word, the Lord sent hurricane Katrina as a judgment against America's "spiritual waviness" (its "double-souledness"). Therefore, it is no coincidence that the Lord adds the following in Jeremiah 5:

 

"21Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: 22Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? 23But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. 24Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. 25Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. 26For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.27As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich." (Jeremiah 5:21-27)

[The "wicked men" among the people (v26) are the pastoral "leaders" mentioned in Jude 1:12 quoted above.]

 

Notice how verses 24 and 25 declare that the people's iniquities can "turn away" the latter-rain revival. This is what happened to America, and America did not even notice!!! This is why the Lord says in verse 21, "O foolish people and without understanding, which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not". Because of her "waviness", America put off the latter-rain revival, the culmination harvest of all the remnant seed sown in America for some 4 centuries.

 

As the light of the coming of the Lord approached the land, many believers drew near to see the light, but other believers laid stumbling blocks in their way and tripped them up (Luke 17:1-2). Those are the "snares" that the Lord mentions in verse 26. The spirit of religious leadership likes to keep believers under its carnal control, so it set snares to "catch" (v26) the believers who were leaving religiosity and approaching God Himself. These stumbling blocks included...

  1.  "Rational" religious arguments denying the validity of the light

  2. Ensnaring manifestations of purposeless power that provided believers with temporary blessings of no eternal value (Matthew 24:11-13), distracting them from the true light (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

And, as many listened to the rational arguments of Cain, and as they were seduced by the purposeless manifestations of Balaam, they stumbled and fell, and were unable to usher in the latter-rain revival in America.

 

At any given place, the manifestation of the latter-rain revival is dependent on the way the latter-day remnant is treated when they are "preliminarily manifested" as green-horse riders. If the green-horse remnant is treated well, the revival will flourish. If they are left to fend for themselves or are grossly mistreated, the vengeance of the Lord is decreed against that place. The visitation of the green-horse remnant is always followed by either a visitation of glory or a visitation of vengeance, depending on how the green-horse remnant was treated.

 

"28They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. 29Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 30A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; 31The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" (Jeremiah 5:28-30)

 

"37But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 38But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. 39And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lordís doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 43Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof." (Matthew 21:37-43)

 

There is much more to say regarding sister Paula's prophetic word, but we will share it in the next posting...
