Prophetic word for today (p.i.)

The 6th seal

First preliminary posting: May 29, 2007

E-mailed: May 25, 2007

Word received by: Kelly Shabott

 

I had a dream, approximately 16 years ago, that I believe is from the Lord. I would like to share it with you. I was walking into a restaurant that was facing east, and it was on the beach. There was a man with me. In my dream, we knew each other, but I never saw his face. He walked ahead of me into the restaurant. I looked to my right, and there was a bar, and at the bar were three nuns drinking tea. The man said, "I know what you're going to do", and I said, "You're right, I'm going to witness to them".

When I approached them, the entire building began to shake. Everyone in the restaurant began screaming and panicking. It was an earthquake like no other. Everyone was trying to get out of the place. I remember looking to the left of the nuns and saw an exit door. I remember crying out to the man that was with me, "Please don't leave me"; he just disappeared. Anyway, I went out the backdoor and was on the beach. All along, the earth is still shaking vigorously. I looked up at the night sky, and I saw the clouds begin to roll up like they were on a scroll being taken away. I kept watching, and, then, it's like all the clouds were gone, and I saw all the stars and, then, the stars, one by one, began to fall to the ground, and, everywhere they fell, fire came up. People were screaming and yelling. And, then, I fell to my knees and said, "The Lord is coming, get to your knees", and I kept saying it over and over. Then, as I watched the people, they ran in fear and panic. I remember seeing power lines fall and a man trying to hold onto one kill himself, but no one was dying.


 

Our brief comments

 

This dream has many deep elements to consider, many of which we will consider without sharing too many details for now:

 

bullet

This dream clearly points to the 6th seal of the Apocalypse:

 

"12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:12-17)

 

bullet

The restaurant speaks of a place of "rest", a place of "restoration" from a hard day's work. Thus, it points to what the 2 "female" ministries are called to do on behalf of those who go out to fight in the "male" anointing of the Spirit.

 

bullet

The fact that the restaurant was facing east points to the rising of the Sun of Righteousness and to the coming of the Glory of the Lord. Thus, the visit to the restaurant speaks of God's Spirit inspecting the state of the pastoral and teaching ministries (in the American Church).

 

bullet

The beach points to looking out towards the sea, which in turn points to God's green-horse visitation (as we have shared before). The beach and its sand also point to the following passage:

 

"27Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: 28For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. 29And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha." (Romans 9:27-29)

 

Even though this passage was originally written in Greek, the Lord prompted Paul to write the Hebrew word "Sabaoth" in the original Greek text of verse 29. The word "Sabaoth" means "hosts", which points to the latter-day manifestation of the God of Shem, the warrior God of Israel, the male God of judgements and justice who comes to obliterate the dominion of the "female" soul in the Church and the world. Notice also how this passage speaks of Sodom and Gomorrah, which points to the fact that God's latter-day visitation is impossible without the coming of obliterating judgements.

 

It is no coincidence that the dreamer's name is "Kelly". According to behindthename.com, the name "Kelly" is apparently derived from the Gaelic name "ceallach" meaning "war, strife". The Gaelic origin of the name points to the colour green and to the green horse of the Apocalypse, and its meaning points to God's "male" warrior nature. As the 6th seal is opened, the red colour of strife and the green colour of hope are combined. The red-horse riders who were so casually dismissed as insignificant pests return to manifest God's magnified wrath through their resurrected green-horse nature, and, in that wrath, the hope of God's manifestation is fulfilled.

 

bullet

The man who was somehow familiar but whose face could not be seen represents the "male" spirit nature of God.

 

"10Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 11Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. 12Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. 13Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 14This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead." (John 21:10-14)

 

As we have shared before, the things of the Spirit are unfamiliar to the soul and are only recognised by those who are walking in the spirit and not the soul. God's latter-day visitation comes to demand that the Church and the world submit the soul under the Spirit. God's green-horse riders, therefore, come to end the dominion of the Man Face over the other 3 spiritual faces. As God's Glory begins to rise in the East, anything that is soul-dominated comes under the heat of His fierce judgement fire.

 

bullet

The fact that the mystery man went into the restaurant ahead of the dreamer speaks of a preliminary manifestation. God's green-horse manifestation begins with a visitation that shall only be recognised by those in the Spirit. To those in the soul, this visitation will go completely unnoticed, for God's green-horse nature is completely irrelevant and offensive to them. This preliminary manifestation serves as a test that determines who is for Korah and who is against him. A negative response to this initial visitation serves as an indicting witness later on that justifies God's response of violent vengeance.

 

bullet

The three (female) nuns represent 3 spirits, the 3 spirits who stand behind the pastoral matriarchy that God's horses of the Apocalypse come to dethrone and destroy. These 3 spirits (Amorite, Canaanite, and Jebusite) are the ones at the (subtle) forefront of the Church when the white horse begins to gallop. The Church's leadership morphs as each of the seals is broken, but, as the time comes for the 6th seal to be opened, things come full circle and the original trio reappears, as a denuded threesome that is exposed after their protective curtain has been opened.

[There is a well-defined mathematical pattern to the spirits listed in this table; God willing, we will post articles in future explaining the underpinnings of this table]

 

{Fellow believer, as I reread the words that the Lord prompted me to write at the end of the previous paragraph, the Lord reminded me of a musical threesome from the late 1980s and early 1990s called "Exposé". When I went to wikipedia.org to learn more about this female trio, I was surprised when I learnt that one of the trio's singers lost her voice in 1990, which forced Exposé to replace her with "Kelly Moneymaker". The album that marked Kelly's debut as a member of the trio is called "Exposé" and was released in 1992, some 15 or 16 years ago. All of this is prophetic in nature. There is a deep message hidden behind the story of this musical trio, even though it may seem as impossible to the natural eye that a not-too-well-known trio from the 1980s and 90s could have anything to do with the 6th seal of the Apocalypse!}

 

The nuns also speak of false religiosity, i.e.- apparent piety that is actually abominable to God. The Church's well-organised religious structures have been hiding a hideous Amorite, Canaanite, and Jebusite trio for ages, but this trio is being exposed by the Lord God of Israel through His faithful remnant.

There is deep prophetic significance in the fact that the 3 nuns were drinking tea at the bar. According to wikipedia.org, the founder of Taoism, Lao Tzu discovered tea as he fled westwards towards the Roman Empire after being disgusted at the way his philosophy was treated in his nation. According to legend, a customs inspector in the Han Pass offered Lao Tzu some tea and encouraged him to write a book of his teachings. Because of this, it became tradition in China to offer tea to guests. Therefore, the fact that the 3 nuns were drinking tea speaks of a "warm reception" for them. Whilst the American Church was cold and inhospitable to God's green-horse remnant, it remained warm and hospitable to its failed leadership, even after it had been exposed in the spirit realm.

 

Taoism is a "pacifist" philosophy that emphasises harmony and non-violence, which correlates with what the Lord has had us share regarding the "Mennonite" spirit in the American Church, a matriarchal spirit that rejects the "male" warrior nature of God. Thus, Taoism is deeply imbued in the Korah spirit of self-deception, a spirit that arrogantly rebels against the God of judgements and justice, a spirit that stands as a last-ditch effort to preserve the matriarchy of the soul on Earth.

 

The name "Lao Tzu" literally means "elder" in Chinese. Thus, it points to an over-reliance on the words of others due to their "hierarchical position". Those who follow Korah follow him simply because he is an "elder" and has other "elders" following him (Numbers 16:1-2), and they are willing to follow him even after he has been exposed as a fake by the raw, cold facts (Numbers 16:35-41). As we have said before, the mor(m)on spirit is also imbued in the Korah spirit of self-deceit. It is no wonder, therefore, that the word "elder" is bandied about so much amongst mormons. The followers of Korah have faith in their elders, not in God Himself.

 

All Korah-imbued "faiths" are faiths based on gooey emotionalism that emphasises pleasant soul feelings over facts. Such faiths consider it "spiritual" to stand above the fray of arguments over facts and issues, claiming that you have reached a "higher spiritual plateau" when you are able to believe in something even when the spiritual facts against it are clearly overwhelming. God has called us to see beyond the visible into a realm of truth that operates behind the scenes of the visible. Yet, this invisible realm of truth operates under laws and principles, just as the visible realm does. It is not a lawless and self-contradictory realm, and it does not "deny" the visible realm. Instead, it clarifies the visible realm, revealing its true meaning.

 

"17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:17-19)

 

"4For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: 5Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount." (Hebrews 8:4-5)

 

"1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." (Hebrews 11:1-3)

[The word "appear" at the end of verse 3 was translated from the Greek verb phaino, which literally means "to bring forth into the light, to manifest". Therefore, a better translation of the last part of verse 3 (based on the original Greek text) would read, "the visible came to be of things which are not manifest".]

 

According to wikipedia.org, Taoism (as a religion) believes in 3 "highest deities" which they call "the 3 pure ones"; these 3 deities are represented by the 3 nuns in the dream:

  1. The deity known as "The Jade Pure" is known in Chinese as the "Heavenly worthy of the fundamental start" (元始天尊). The word "Start" is translated from a Chinese word whose written form (始) begins with the written form of the word for "female", 女, which, as you may see, looks like a pregnant woman (that is, in fact, its historical origin). Thus, this deity points to "motherhood" as the foundation for all of life. As we have studied before, the Canaanite spirit is a spirit of soul-centred motherhood that deifies "mothers" and downplays "fathers". Therefore, the "Jade Pure" deity is in fact a Canaanite spirit.

     

  2. The deity known as "The Upper Pure" is known in Chinese as the "Heavenly worthy of the numinous treasure" (靈寶天尊). The word "numinous" is translated from the Chinese word 靈 which, according to babylon.com, means "clever, sharp" as an adjective and "departed soul, spirit, intelligence, bier" as a noun. Therefore, this Chinese word has the connotation of (dead) "spiritual intelligence" that "stands above" others. Thus, it points to the Jebusite spirit, since Jebusites are "apostles gone bad" who misuse their God-given apostolic wisdom to stand a notch above their brethren (like a coffin on a bier), cursing those who are not "fortunate enough" to operate at their level of dead, human wisdom (John 7:49).

     

  3. The deity known as "The Great Pure" is known in Chinese as the "Most exalted elder monarch" (太上老君). Therefore, it clearly points to the Amorite spirit of kingly self-exaltation.

 

Therefore, the 3 Taoist "highest deities" correspond to the Amorite, Canaanite, and Jebusite spirits, which is the "religious trio" mentioned above. This is no coincidence. No wonder the nuns were drinking tea!

 

Interestingly enough, according to wikipedia.org, legend has it that Lao Tzu was conceived when his mother gazed upon a falling star, which correlates with the falling stars that are mentioned later in the dream.

 

There are many more things that can be said regarding the appearance of tea in the dream, which are related to China, Britain, America, and the colours green and blue, but they fall outside the (visible) scope of this post.

The mystery man and the dreamer spoke of "witnessing" to the 3 nuns. The fact that the 2 spoke of witnessing points to the 2-witness anointing on God's remnant.

 

bullet

In the dream, the building began to shake as the dreamer approached the 3 nuns to witness to them. This points to the spiritual earthquake that happens after God's green-horse riders are killed:

 

"50Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent" (Matthew 27:50-51)

 

This earthquake marks the beginning of the end for the religious structures that have held back God's plans for so long. This is the reason why this earthquake is "an earthquake like no other".

 

bullet

After the "2 witnesses" in you are killed by the religious beast (during the green-horse phase of your walk), you will go into a period of Sheol hibernation. During this period, something dramatic will happen, something unseen by the natural eye. The Lord will begin to resurrect the "2 witnesses" that the religious beast so savagely silenced, and, through your resurrected nature, God will unleash devastating vengeance on those who fought against the "2 witnesses" in you. That devastating vengeance will witness to all that, indeed, you were the one in God, not the religious leadership. This is when the 6th seal becomes fully open.

 

"4So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 5Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: 6Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day." (2 Thessalonians 1:4-10)

 

"54Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God." (Matthew 27:54)

 

The word "saw" in the verse above was translated from the Greek verb eido, which means "seeing with the natural eyes of the mind". Therefore, verse 54 above is point to a physical, naturally visible, manifestation of the spiritual earthquake that happens immediately after God's green-horse riders are "killed" (v51).

 

bullet

The exit door that the dreamer saw to the left of the nuns points to the illogical "left turn" exit that God's "pregnant" green-horse riders are compelled by the Spirit to take. This "left turn" exit sends you straight to Death and Sheol, to a place of total despair in which you realise that even God, the God in whom you have trusted, has forsaken you. This is the reason why the dreamer cried out to the man, "Please don't leave me", but he simply disappeared.

 

"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46)

 

bullet

The clouds that were rolled up like a scroll represent the total removal of all the forces in the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth which are preventing the full manifestation of God's Spirit nature on Earth. As we have studied before, the spirit of Korah is a spirit that says to satan, "you take the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth; just leave the earthly kingdoms to me". Therefore, once Korah and his followers are obliterated, the way is cleared in the air for the Lord to manifest His righteous nature on Earth.

 

bullet

The falling stars in the dream point to Revelation 6:13:

 

"And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind" (Revelation 6:13)

 

The phrase "untimely figs" was translated from the Greek word olunthos, which refers to an unripe fig that grows during the winter but which never reaches full maturity, falling off in the spring. After America forced God's remnant to go through a cruel summer in 2005, God put America to a final test during the autumn and winter of 2005. America failed the test, and, when spring came on March 20, 2006, God's green-horse remnant had left the mainstream of America and gone into spiritual hiding because the revival foundation that was supposed to grow during the winter of 2005 never reached full maturity. This is the spiritual reason why a dead whale appeared in Spring Lake, in Monmouth County, New Jersey on April 22, 2006. The American Church is full of "fig ministers" who became stuck at age "25" and refused to mature to age "30".

 

The phrase "mighty wind" above was translated from the Greek words megas meaning "great" and anemos meaning "wind". The other Greek word for "wind", pneuma, is also the word for "spirit", and is translated as such throughout the New Testament. The word anemos, by contrast, has more of a "soul" connotation. That is the reason why the English word "animal" is derived from anemos and not from pneuma, since animals have souls but lack a spirit. The word anemos is also used in several passages (such as Ephesians 4:14, Matthew 11:7 and Matthew 8:26) to denote strong soul agitations that affect the mind. Therefore, the megas anemos that shall shake the immature figs represents the angry agitations of God's soul, indignant agitations that result in the unleashing of judgements from His agitated mind ... indignant agitations that defy the "Taoist pacifism" of Korah.

 

bullet

The fire that came up wherever the stars fell points to the fire unleashed from God against Korah and his followers:

 

"And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense" (Numbers 16:35)

[The number 250 equals 25 times 10, which points to the number "25" mentioned above]

 

bullet

The fact that the dreamer had this dream 16 years ago has prophetic significance. On the one hand, it points to God's judgement against the American Church because she became stuck at "16" and refused to move on to "17" (where God's remnant can be fully manifested). On the other hand, it points to "4 squared" (4 times 4), which, in turn, points to the UK, the spiritual place to which the remnant fled in the Spirit as America is judged for her Thomas-like unbelief.

 

"16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:16-17)
