Prophetic word for today (p.i.)

Porch delay

First preliminary posting: March 13, 2007

E-mailed: October 22, 2005

Word received by: Neidra McElroy

 

In the dream I was seated at a desk in my bedroom writing in a journal. The bedroom had a long porch that dropped into an ocean, but the ocean was part of our private property, and the water never ran over the edge of the porch.


My husband left the room, and, all of a sudden, a lion was wading in the water. Although the lion looked peaceful, it was strange to me because I did not think that lions would go into deep waters. So, as I was watching the lion, a tiger appeared as well as a lioness. But another strange thing was that the tiger started trying to mate with the lioness. At that point, I remember the lion came out the water and fear came upon me. I went towards the door to close it, and the lion, lioness, and the tiger started coming towards me. I locked the door, and all I could hear was fighting and scratching outside of the door. Then I woke up.
 

 

Our brief comments

 

{Fellow believer, if the Lord shares something with you regarding these dreams, please let us know. Thank you.}

 

This dream has several elements worth considering:

 

bullet

The house in the dream represents America and the Church in general.

 

bullet

Sister Neidra writing in a journal inside the house represents the appearance of God's pestilent red-horse riders inside the Church's religious structures. These red-horse teacher-apostles come to "rewrite" the teachings of the Church. Their weak pens, spawned by an intimate [i.e.- bedroom] walk with God, are able to produce teachings in the Spirit that are different to man's traditional teachings because they have allowed God to use their very lives as the "blackboard" upon which He can write His wisdom into the Earth. Unlike the "Cain" teachers who teach things that are external to them, these red-horse "Abel" teachers teach things that flow out from their inner (i.e.- blood) sacrifice unto God. Their teachings are written in the red "Abel" blood that they are willing to shed for the Lord's sake. As you "read" their teachings (literally or figuratively), you are reading their sold-out lives, meaning that you are, in essence, reading their "journals".

 

bullet

Sister Neidra's husband represents "human coverings". Thus, his leaving the room represents God's people heeding the red-horse shout of God and going out into the lonely black-horse wilderness where you have no human "covering" and where your only covering is God Himself.

 

bullet

The ocean by which the house stood represents the sea of green-horse potential upon which so much valuable bread is floating. As we have studied before, the American Church was unable to understand this potential. Many of God's people who had gone out into the black-horse wilderness became stuck at that stage and were unable to discern the need for the next stage: the green-horse stage in which you must be willing to make an utter, uncompromising surrender in order to achieve God's purposes on Earth.

 

bullet

The lion that appeared "all of a sudden" represents God's visitation in the form of green-horse riders who come to unleash obliterating judgements against the soul-matriarchy structures of man. The fact that the lion could swim in deep waters represents believers who have understood the seamless integration between the God of apostolic "lion" judgements that kill and the God of prophetic waters of life that flow from the innermost parts of man. These black-horse apostle-prophets understand that their black-horse walk is geared towards entering the green-horse phase where they must be willing to make utter, uncompromising sacrifices for the sake of others.

 

bullet

The fact that the lion looked "peaceful" means that he represents believers who make judgements birthed in the Spirit, not in the flesh. God's judgements, wrathful and destructive as they may be, are intended to yield a peaceable fruit of righteousness (James 3:18). God's judgements are intended to produce utter redemption and transformation (Isaiah 1:26-28, Genesis 3:24). God's wrath is a controlled and precise wrath, a wrath under the reins of His Spirit.

The tiger's appearance represents the spiritual interference that hindered God's visitation of America. As we have seen before, tigers are not a figure of evil in and of themselves. However, in the context of the lion and the lioness in this dream, the tiger represents a "tainted lion". As I would think about the tiger, the Lord would constantly say "India" to me. India is famous for its tigers, and the tiger is its official national animal (according to wikipedia.org). Today (March 12, 2007), as I went to a public place, the Lord caused something to happen out of nowhere that served as prophetic confirmation of this. The connection between the tiger and India also points to the spirits of the native peoples of the Americas. As you may know, the indigenous peoples who populated what is now Latin America were labelled as "Indians" by Christopher Columbus. Even though this may appear to most as a "historical mistake", it was actually a "spiritual accuracy". A close study of both cultures (India's and that of natives in the Americas) reveals a great deal of negative similarities: both emphasise superstition over rational judgements, both emphasise a spirituality based on "feel-good emotions" rather than on impersonal principles of righteousness, and both emphasise a frog-like harmony with the surrounding group, deeply frowning upon the manifestation of individuality. Thus, the tiger in the dream represents the contamination in America's spiritual atmosphere caused by the Latin American influence in America. As illegals from Latin America have flooded into America, they have taken with them the contamination of "Indian" spirits from their homelands and infiltrated them into America. In that sense, they have acted as "Trojan horses" that have helped to establish a stronghold of "native Indian" unrighteousness in a land that was originally appointed by God to act as a deterrent to that influence around the world. Had the Church in Latin America aligned herself with God's will, she would have served as God's agent to obliterate the ancestral Indian spirits that have cursed the Latin American land for ages, and she would have been used by God to bless America (and the world) in a mighty, mighty way. Unfortunately, the Latin American Church went the way of Korah, and she ended up allying herself with the native Indian spirits, which are God's staunch enemies in the spirit realm. Cursed be the Jezebelian Indian spirits! Cursed spirits, your destiny is that of Amalek! You were cursed from the beginning, and there is a small but unrelenting army that shall war against you until you are wiped off the face of the Earth! Your proud aloofness and self-righteousness shall not remain for much longer! Cursed little whore! Your end is at hand! I shall soon have the pleasure of spitting over your mangled cadaver, and I shall rejoice over God's victory against you! No one challenges the God of Israel and gets away with it!

 

A close study of Revelation 20:7-8 reveals a little-taught but very important spiritual principle: A people who adopt an attitude will inevitably draw the rise of a leader who will channel that attitude and enable it, whether that attitude be righteous or unrighteous. As the Latin American Church began to unashamedly adopt Korah-style attitudes, it drew the rise of a Korah leadership that enabled those attitudes and allowed them to flourish and dominate her spiritual atmosphere. We can therefore say that the tiger in the dream represents the Korah spirit that was drawn into Latin America and ended up devouring Latin America's spiritual calling. As Latin American illegals with these Korah attitudes began to infiltrate America, they began to draw the Korah tiger towards America as well. This tiger's intention was to devour America's calling just as it had done with Latin America's calling. Even when it was unable to achieve its goal, it was still able to delay the fulfilment of America's calling. This delay has been spiritually costly. Each second wasted has been a second in which the spiritual potential of millions has been "leaking away", like a leaky faucet that has been irremediably wasting water away, one precious drop at a time.

In the dream, the lion (being male) represents the spirit of God's faithful remnant, whilst the lioness (being female) represents the soul of God's remnant believers. The tiger's efforts to mate with (i.e.- rape) the lioness represent the enemy's efforts to force the remnant into a place of compromise for the sake of some temporal blessings. When male lions mate with female tigers, "ligers" are born. When male tigers mate with female lions, "tigons" are born. According to wikipedia.org, male tigons are sterile whilst female tigons are generally fertile. Thus, the tiger's attempt to rape the lioness represents satan's final effort to suppress the manifestation of the "male" spirit nature of God's people. God's green-horse riders come to uncompromisingly obliterate the soul matriarchy, and satan tries to back God's remnant into a corner where they are forced to compromise their principles, thus sacrificing their spiritual fertility for the sake of some temporal and worthless fertility. It is no coincidence that the word "tigon" is similar to the word "dragon". The Korah snake does everything in its power to prevent the manifestation (i.e.- revelation) of the sons of God (Romans 8:17-25). This manifestation of Yeshua in God's people is what the book of Revelation is all about (Revelation 1:1).

The dreamer's fear of the oncoming lion represents the American Church's soulish fear of the God of judgements. Due to the pastoral matriarchy, believers have been indoctrinated into thinking that the God of judgements is a "bad" God, without realising that God's judgements, painful as they may be, are inherently good:

 

"7The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. 12Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. 14Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer." (Psalm 19:7-14)

[Those who love the Lord long for His judgements, because His judgements expose hidden issues and allow us to grow into the fullness of His nature in us. Those who are bold enough to grow into the measure of the fullness of the stature of Christ shall be One with God for eternity. Those who don't shall only see God from afar. It is one thing to "see" the kingdom; it is another to "enter" it (John 3:3-5).]

 

In the spirit realm, the American Church became scared when she understood that God came to unleash a total transformation upon America and the world. God was not coming to "tweak" the Church but to break her apart and shape her anew. This is when the American Church shut God out on the porch, without allowing Him to enter and take dominion. Unlike Latin America, the American Church had been able to complete her black-horse stage and was set to enter into the fullness of the green-horse stage. Unfortunately, she pulled a "Norway" on God, leaving God's green remnant out in the cold of the porch, exposing them to the attacks of the "Indian tiger" enemy. This is what the fighting and scratching that sister Neidra heard represent. In his recent Latin American visit, U.S. President Bush has experienced the fighting and scratching of this cursed "Indian tiger".
