The west-European nations of Spain and France have been ravaged by a terrible drought. In regions of Spain such as Murcia, the rivers are almost empty, and the reservoirs are only 20% full. This is Spain's worst drought since 1947. Tourist areas throughout Spain have worsened the drought crisis because of their massive demand for water. Hotels consume great quantities of water to fill swimming pools and irrigate the hotels' lawns, shrubs, and trees. Tourist areas also use massive amounts of water for the upkeep of golf courses in order to hide the drought from visiting tourists. Spain is the European country where water is the cheapest, and it is also the country that uses the most water per capita in all of Europe. Many believe that, if Spain continues its current rate of water consumption, a third of Spain will become a desert within 50 years.
The situation in France is also critical. Rivers are drying up and French farmers are greatly concerned about their crops. Rainfall throughout Europe as a whole has also been well below average.
This is the prophetic interpretation of these events:
In order to understand what the Lord is doing in Spain, we must first understand the spirits that have been prevalent in Spain for many, many centuries. Shortly after Spain finally came together as a united country in the late 15th century, one of the first things it did was to unleash a wave of brutal religious oppression known as the Spanish Inquisition. In 1478, some Spanish Dominicans convinced the pope to authorize that the Spanish monarchy set up a system of institutionalized repression against non-catholics, especially Jews. All non-catholics were told to either "convert" or suffer expulsion from Spain. All those who refused to live by the catholic religion were viciously tortured or persecuted. Therefore, the rise of Spain as a unified power in Europe is marked by bitter religious oppression and racial hatred. The Spanish Inquisition benefited both the catholic religious hierarchy and the rising Spanish monarchy that supported it, and it crushed the potential for religious freedom in Spain, even to this day.
Spain became a stronghold of the oppressive catholic religion in Europe. Therefore, when the Protestant Reformation broke out throughout Europe a few years later (beginning in 1517), Spain was already "walled in", and the Protestant movement was never allowed to gain strength there. Spain continues to be a country mired in occult catholic traditions such as "processions", where idols of "Mary" and other "saints" are reverently hauled around town on "special" occasions. The worship of "Mary" and the "saints" reaches fanatical proportions in Spain. Candles are lit to these demons, and prayers are made to them rather than to God. All this pseudo-Christian occultism is staunchly defended, and anyone who dares to condemn it is quickly attacked and ostracized.
Spain is responsible for the spread of oppressive catholicism throughout its colonies in the Americas, and many of its occult practices are carried out throughout Latin America, even to this day, despite the spread of non-catholic "Christianity" in much of Latin America. Spain forced catholicism upon Latin America "Inquisition-style"; The Indians were forced to either become "catholic" or die. In order to "ease" the Indians' transition to catholicism, the Spanish priests invented regional versions of "Mary" and of "Jesus" that were easier to worship by the Indian tribes. Native pagan traditions were also mixed in to make catholicism more "palatable" to the Indians. As long as the Indians submitted themselves to the catholic church's hierarchy, the Spanish priests did not care about further compromising their already-compromised brand of "Christianity".
From all of this, it becomes evident that Spain is dominated by the Jebusite spirit of legalistic oppression. Jebusites are by nature "shamers" (John 18:19-23) who don't think twice about maiming and murdering anyone who refuses to yield to the "established order" set by their respective Amorite (Luke 22:2, John 5:17-18, John 7:19, John 7:45-52). This Jebusite tendency to murder can be seen in the way the Indians were treated by the conquering Spaniards during the Spanish colonization of the Americas. The Spanish conquerors did not think twice about treacherously murdering Indian leaders and massacring Indian communities in order to establish their system of government and "faith". God allowed this as poetic justice against the Jebusite tendency that the Indians already had before the Spaniards colonized them. To this day, Indians throughout Latin America still manifest a strong Jebusite streak of oppression and denigration against themselves. Many of the massacres of Indians carried out in various parts of Latin America were performed by armies full of other Indians.
As we have said before, the apostolic ministry is the one most related to the making of judgments. Therefore, apostles who stray from God's judgments turn into legalistic Jebusites who impose earthly judgments based on natural sight (John 5:30, John 7:24). This means that Spain has an apostolic calling that has gone woefully awry. As we have said before, apostles are trailblazers who break new ground for others. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Spaniards were the ones who "discovered" the Americas and began its colonization. As you all know, the Spaniards "discovered" the Americas through Christopher Columbus, who decided to sail west instead of east. As a trailblazer, Columbus sailed through waters never before traveled by Europeans as he followed a wisdom revelation that most people did not have (that revelation was the fact that the Earth was round and not flat). That is how he and the Spaniards discovered the Americas.
As we have seen before, Jebusites are spiritual "cripplers", which means that any place dominated by Jebusites will inevitably lead to the strong presence of the Perizzite spirit of lameness and dependency. The Perizzite spirit produces "poor villagers" with a very limited sense of vision for their own lives and the lives of others. Perizzites are quick to reject the notion of "dreaming" because they are persuaded by the limitations around them. In a sense, Perizzites always go around saying, "Who am I to dream? How can I expect great things out of my life. I am just a poor villager. I was born in this poor village, and I will die here. There is nothing I can do about it". Therefore, Perizzite spirits inevitably lead to spiritual and material poverty. It is not surprising, then, that Spain became one of the most backward countries in Europe for many centuries. After its domination of Europe during the 16th century, Spain went into a cultural and economic tailspin. It is only until recently that Spain has been partially able to revert this trend. As Spain has been coming out of its Perizzite village in the last few decades, modernity has slowly begun to creep in. However, when Spain pulled out of Iraq after the March 11, 2004 terrorist attacks, this outward-looking trend was reversed. By pulling out of a righteous cause, Spain became an inward-looking Perizzite village once again, and God's judgments have been upon it ever since. This is what triggered the intense drought they are currently suffering.
The Perizzite "village" influence in Spain is also responsible for the spirit of "provincialism" that has fragmented Spain for centuries. Even though Spain is not an inordinately large country, the culture and traditions vary greatly from province to province. This provincialism has also led to the creation of localized demons ("virgins", "saints", and other "deities"), a practice that was exported to Latin America. Because of its Jebusite-Perizzite fragmentation, Spain was only able to become a unified nation until the late 15th century. Shortly after that, they rose to European prominence before sliding back towards Perizzite backwardness.
Besides the Jebusite influence, there is a strong Canaanite influence over Spain. As we have said before, the Canaanite spirit is a spirit of low, earthly passions that leads to addictions and sexual perversions. This spirit is evident throughout the Spanish culture. Spain is very sexually libertine; the regular Spanish TV channels air programs that openly speak about "sexual techniques" with live audiences full of young people. Spanish women are generally quick to flaunt their sexual attributes not only through their attire but through their overall demeanor. Spanish comedy is loaded with sexual innuendos and references to gross and unclean things; obviously, you will find such comedy all over the world, but, in Spain's case, such comedy is the only comedy around; it is not counterbalanced by more refined and thoughtful comedy such as the one you find in American culture (in newer shows such as "Everybody loves Raymond" or older shows such as "The Jeffersons").
As we have said before, Canaanites are people-pleasing "dancers". Therefore, it is not surprising that Spain is famous for its flamenco and fandango dances.
While Spain is going through its worst drought in 58 years, tourist areas are still consuming massive amounts of water in order to keep their grass areas green and their swimming pools full. This is a reflection of the Canaanite desire to please others, even at the expense of one's own convictions.
As we briefly noted before, a close study of Scripture reveals that "flies" are a figure of the Jebusite and Canaanite spirits working together. Therefore, since Spain is both Jebusite and Canaanite, we can conclude that Spain is a place full of "spiritual flies". It is not a coincidence, then, that the only species name that associates the word "fly" with a given nationality is the "Spanish fly". As you may know, the Spanish fly is a bright-green beetle that is found in Southern Europe.
In my personal experience, I have found flies to be "vengeful" little bugs. When I have swatted them away, I have often found them angrily charging back towards my ear or face, as if they were taking revenge against me. As you may know, flies make an annoying buzzing sound that is quick to evoke irritation and anger in anyone who hears it up close. Therefore, we can say that flies minister anger, irritation, and revenge, which is consistent with the Jebusite and Canaanite spirits. Jebusites are angry, dogmatic people who go around imposing human traditions and doctrine upon others. Canaanites, on the other hand, are people-pleasing individuals who turn vengefully angry against anyone who dares to judge them (Genesis 19:9-10). Therefore, whenever you are in front of a Jebusite-Canaanite, you are standing before a spiritual "Spanish fly".
In traditional Spanish "flamenco" dancing, men must stomp the ground with their shoes while women are to gracefully move their bodies and hands. Therefore, the man in flamenco dancing represents the Jebusite spirit, since the word "Jebusite" literally means "thresher", which speaks of people or animals hitting or stomping something on the ground; Jebusites are "stompers" who tread on other people to humiliate them for the sake of a meaningless human law. While the "stomping" man in flamenco dancing represents the Jebusite spirit, the woman represents the Canaanite spirit, since she must make graceful motions with her body and hands in order to please her partner and the people watching her.
Most people consider Spaniard Pastora Pavon to be the greatest flamenco singer-songwriter of all time. In Spanish, the word "pastora" literally means "female pastor", which points to the Canaanite spirit, since the pastoral ministry is a "female" ministry that goes "Canaanite" and institutes a pastoral matriarchy when it strays from God's will. The word "pavon" is the name of a butterfly that has eye-like spots on its wings. As we have said before, the "eye" is associated in Scripture to the making of judgments. Since butterflies do not get too high off the ground, the eye-like spots on the "pavon's" wings speak of Jebusite judgments that are based on earthly appearance and soulish perception rather than on God's spiritual perspective. Therefore, we can see how the name "Pastora Pavon" once again points to both the Jebusite and the Canaanite influence in Spain.
In the 1950s, Antonio Mairena became a popular flamenco singer, and he created a style of flamenco called "Mairenism" that promoted a proactive rejection of any changes to the traditional "flamenco" style. Mairenism rejected any musical innovations brought on by newer generations, treating them as if they were "religious heresy". Mairenism, therefore, is an example of how Jebusites repress the freedom of prophetic flow as they elevate temporal, human doctrine to an "eternal, stagnant, and unquestionable" status.
As we said above, the Spanish fly is a species of beetle. It is no coincidence, therefore, that the expression "beetle-browed" is associated with spiteful anger. According to Webster's Dictionary, "beetle-browed" means "sullen, lowering, morose". Jebusites are "lowering" because they like to humiliate people whom they consider of a "lower class" (Luke 18:10-12). Both Jebusites and Canaanites are "sullen" people who hold silent anger and resentment against the righteous people who prove them wrong, seeking to take revenge at the first chance they get (Matthew 26:1-4, Luke 22:2, John 5:17-18, John 7:19-20, John 8:37, Acts 23:12-15).
Since Jebusites and Canaanites are both related to "unrighteous, angry revenge", it is not surprising that Spaniards are known for their "temper". The Spaniards themselves have nicknamed their national soccer team as "La Furia Española", which means "the Spanish fury". This shows that they are not only angry, but proud of it!
As we share in a previous word, the presence of Jebusite spirits fosters the manifestation of the Canaanite spirit of homosexuality (since Jebusites deprive people of their "spiritual manhood"). Since both the Jebusite and the Canaanite spirits are strong in Spain, it is not surprising that Spain recently joined the very short list of countries around the world that have legalized homosexual "marriages". In a place filled with Jebusite-Canaanite "Spanish flies", the spirit of homosexuality is bound to appear.
There is a spiritual reason why the Spanish fly is a bright-green beetle. As we have shared before, the color green is related to the prophetic ministry because it speaks of vision, life, and hope. In a more general sense, the colors red, green, and blue correspond to each component of the soul; the color red is related to the mind, the color green to emotions, and the color blue to the heart. Just like their cousins the Girgashites, Jebusites are repressors of emotional outbursts. Jebusites, however, have a more "active" and "militant" emotional component than the Girgashites, which means that Jebusites often need outlets for their self-repressed emotional energy. This is the reason why it is not uncommon for Jebusites to turn to Canaanite practices in order to provide an outlet for their repressed emotions. Many of the militant 9/11 terrorists (who are Hittite-Jebusite in nature), for example, took Canaanite "pleasure" trips to Las Vegas shortly before killing themselves on 9/11.
While the mind is the most "grounded" component of the soul, emotions are the component that allow souls to "fly". Therefore, the Canaanite spirit provides an outlet that allows Jebusites to "fly"; this flight, however, is low and temporary. Jebusites cannot embark on high and long "prophetic" flights like the eagle or other birds. They can only have short and low flights that resemble the flight of annoying, little insects. This is the reason why Spanish flies are bright-green in color.
"Cantharides" is a preparation made out of Spanish flies formerly used as a skin irritant. This speaks of how Jebusites are an irritating spiritual presence that tries to impose legalistic laws from the outside in, instead of working from the inside out:
"16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. 18Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. 20Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21(Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh." (Colossians 2:16-23)
[According to verse 23, external "religious" rules may look "pious" and "righteous", but they do nothing to change people on the inside. Rather than transform, external Jebusite rules only repress. This is why Jebusite environments foster the influx of Canaanite spirits that serve as "outlets" for all the emotions repressed by the Jebusites (and Girgashites).]
Besides being used as a skin irritant, "cantharides" was also used as a diuretic. There is a spiritual reason for this. As Jebusites exert external, repressive pressure on people, those under their influence are prone to internalize and accumulate more and more pressure within them, which makes it necessary for them to find an outlet for that pressure. This correlates with the fact that cantharides was used to give people the urge to urinate. Therefore, we can say that bedwetting is generally a manifestation of Jebusite pressure over the child's life. Bedwetting brings a sense of shame to children, which correlates with the fact that Jebusites are "shamers" by nature. Jebusites bring a sense of shame over any type of emotional outpouring, automatically labeling any such outpouring as "sin". This leads to spiritual "bedwetting" as the people under their influence subconsciously look for a way to release all the emotional energy repressed by the Jebusite spirit.
Therefore, when a child is a "bedwetter" (literally or spiritually), he or she is being exposed to a Jebusite influence that brings shame over any manifestation of emotional freedom. Such a "child" must be taught that there are righteous outpourings of emotional freedom, when they are done on a foundation of righteousness and truth. The "child" must be taught that God is not a "repressive" and "accusing" God waiting to find fault in you, but a God of righteous judgments whose goal is to see you move in His truth and freedom. The child must understand that God wants us to be like Him. He did not create us to stomp us under His feet. He created us to be One with Him. The purpose of God's judgments are to mold us into His righteous likeness so that we may share in His un-shareable Glory (John 17:22-23, Isaiah 42:8). His judgments are designed to break us away from the limitations of the temporal so that we may move in the freedom of the eternal (2 Corinthians 3:17-18).
A spiritual "bedwetter" must be taught to walk in his or her spiritual authority in Christ. He or she must learn of his or her apostolic authority to make judgments and of his or her evangelistic authority to take dominion over all things (Genesis 1:26-28). He or she must learn to stand above the pressures that often overwhelm him or her, take dominion over them, and judge them in the Spirit. As you stand above the earthly realm, you are free to operate in the liberty of the spirit nature God has endowed you with (Colossians 3:10, Ephesians 4:24).
"3Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." (Galatians 4:3-7)
A spiritual "bedwetter" also needs "apostolic-pastoral" support. The pastoral ministry is "perfected" when it moves in apostolic judgments. In the latter days, God will raise up "apostolic pastors" who will not be swayed by the anti-judgment Canaanite spirit. These apostolic pastors will provide comfort and nurturing support for righteousness-seeking fellow believers, without taking them towards Canaanite unrighteousness. A "bedwetter" needs nurturing pastoral support that is founded on apostolic judgments.
The Spaniards who conquered most of Latin America were for the most part manipulative men who used deceit to take control over the major Indian kingdoms throughout the Americas. As we have said before, Amorites are by nature manipulative men (and women) who use people and then throw them away once they have gotten what they want from them. The Amorite spirit is a conquering spirit that seeks to establish earthly kingdoms unto itself (as opposed to an evangelist, who conquers kingdoms unto God). Therefore, the fact that Spain was able to conquer such a vast portion of the Americas through manipulation shows that Spain is a nation with an evangelistic calling that went Amorite.
As the Spaniards conquered most of the Americas, they extracted great quantities of gold from the Indians. This is typical Amorite behavior. Amorites love to become kings so that others may become their slaves and provide them with all their self-glorifying desires. In Scripture, "gold" is often related to God's Glory, and it can at times represent human glory when used in a negative context. By extracting gold from the Americas, the Spaniards were seeking human glory as a nation.
The "glorifying" gold, however, led to Spain's eventual downfall. The influx of gold (and silver) from the New World created tremendous inflationary pressures within Spain that led to the stagnation of Spanish industry. Inflation made it impossible for Spanish producers to export their goods because prices in Spain rose more quickly than in the rest of Europe. This led to a permanent state of "industrial backwardness" with respect to the rest of Europe. Spain has not recovered from this backwardness, even to this day. The Perizzite spirit in Spain has worked to solidify this industrial stagnation. The gold that turned Spain into Europe's Amorite superpower during the 16th century also led to its eventual decline and historical obscurity in later centuries.
As we have said before, the "frog" spirit is a combination of the Canaanite and Amorite spirits. Therefore, the fact that Spain is infested with Canaanite and Amorite spirits means that various sections of Spain are filled with "spiritual frogs". These "frog ponds" are physically represented by the well-watered, green tourist areas in the middle of dry Spain. Since "flies" and "frogs" generally go together, it is not surprising that Spain has both.
The Jebusite spirit has brought dryness to Spain, and the Canaanite-Amorite spirits have taken the little water that is left to fill "frog ponds" throughout Spain. Earthly kings and queens have a tendency to swim in luxury while their subjects are mired in scarcity. To quote a famous phrase attributed to a French "frog queen", earthly kings and queens like to say, "Let them eat cake!!", when referring to the "plebeians". The fact that tourists are allowed to swim in abundant water and to walk on lusciously green grass while the rest of Spain is turning into a desert is a physical manifestation of this.
As we mentioned above, "fandango" is one of Spain's popular dance and music styles. If you remove the middle syllable from the word "fandango", you get the word "fango". Coincidentally, the word "dan" means "judge" in Hebrew; therefore, the "dan" syllable points to the Jebusite spirit of legalistic judgments. On the other hand, the Spanish word "fango" means "marsh", which speaks of stagnant water. This correlates with the "frog" spirit in Spain, since frogs thrive in areas wet with stagnant water.
Another popular dance and music style in Spain is the "flamenco", which evolved from the culture of gypsies that migrated to Spain from India. This correlates with the influence of the "frog" spirit in Spain, since, as we share in a previous word, India is inundated by the frog spirit.
"Coincidentally", the word "flamenco" is very similar to the Spanish (and English) word "flamingo". As you know, flamingos are large, wading birds with long legs and necks and red or pinkish plumage. Like the frogs, flamingos live in stagnant-water environments. The flamingo's long legs and necks point to the spirit of Amorite pride and aloofness, and its pinkish plumage points to the Canaanite spirit of "female" supremacy, since the color pink is a "female" color. Therefore, the flamingo is a figure of the pastoral matriarchy and the Canaanite-Amorite spirit.
As you may know, bullfighting is very popular in Spain. In bullfighting, a "matador" (Spanish for "killer") "dances" around a charging bull, setting him up to be brutally bled to death with swords thrust into his back. The fact that Spain is eminently a Jebusite nation explains why Spaniards are so comfortable watching such a gory "sport". Jebusites are murderers by nature. As opposed to God's spiritual judges, Jebusites kill for the sake of killing. They don't "kill" through righteous judgments in order to "resurrect" people to a new spiritual dimension. They simply kill because they enjoy destroying others. In that sense, Jebusites are like spiritual "pit bulls". They are killing machines that kill with no prophetic purpose in mind. Unlike spiritual judges, they are threshers that don't think twice about destroying the grain with the husk (Isaiah 28:26-29).
The fact that Spain is also a nation of Canaanite dancers is reflected in the "artful" way in which the matador dances with the bull before killing him. Spain's Amorite influence can also be seen in the thrill Spaniards get at overcoming such a strong beast like the bull. Why? Because Amorites are "tall" and "strong" in nature (Amos 2:9), and they take fleshly pride in showing themselves "taller" and "stronger" than others. Therefore, we can see that bullfighting exemplifies the three dominant spirits in Spain: the Jebusite murderer, the Canaanite dancer, and the Amorite strongman.
In a previous word, we shared how France has behaved like a "dumb bull" because of its Girgashite-Amorite influence. While France has acted like a "dumb bull", Spain has behaved like a "mad bull". Why? Because, as we said above, Jebusite-Canaanites are angry and resentful people who take forceful revenge against people who dare to judge them or their Amorite kings. Canaanites in particular are people who go "spiritually mad" because they shut off their judgment-making mind and allow themselves to be ruled by their emotions. Therefore, the word "mad" applies to Spain in two ways; Spain is "mad" in the sense of being "Jebusitely" angry, and it is "mad" in the sense of being Canaanite-crazy. Spain is also a "bull" in the sense of its Amorite strength.
It is worth noting that Spain is primarily Jebusite and secondarily Canaanite. Because Jebusites are intrinsically restrictive and Canaanites are intrinsically inconstant, Spain's conquering and expansive nature often gets overshadowed. Spain behaves like a self-binding and inconsistent bull that is only able to show its strength for very short periods of time. This is the reason why Spain was Europe's superpower during the 16th century only.
The reservoirs in Spain are about 20% full at this time. As we share in our previous word, "20%" speaks of the "20 measures of evangelistic wheat" that you must produce "on your own" in order to bless others. It therefore speaks of "evangelistic independence".
As we said above, the Amorite spirit is strong in Spain, which means that Spain has an evangelistic calling gone awry, since evangelists turn into Amorites when they stray from God's will. Therefore, God has dried up Spain's reservoirs and left them 20%-full as a prophetic sign that Spain's evangelistic anointing will be set free only after the Jebusite-dryness stranglehold is broken.
As we have said before, the black horse of the Apocalypse comes to bring judgment against those who have become overly dependent on human structures and paradigms. Therefore, the 20%-full reservoirs speak of God's judgment against those in Spain who stubbornly cling to the traditions and paradigms of their ancestors. God will continue sending the "undercover" black horse of scarcity into Spain in order to set it free from its Jebusite and Canaanite past. That is the only way that Spain's evangelistic anointing can be unleashed.
The 20%-full reservoirs also reveal a spiritual principle. 80% of the reservoirs' capacity has already been consumed, and only 20% is available for future use. As we saw before, "80%" of our "evangelistic grace" is freely given to us by God through others, and we are called to use that "80%" as a foundation to produce the other "20%". If you become permanently dependent on others, you will simply consume the 80% from others in this life, but you will not have produced the other 20%, and God determines your eternal inheritance based on this "20%". In other words, the 80% is to be invested in this lifetime in order to yield a 20% eternal harvest that will bless others. Those who are overly dependent on men will consume the 80% rather than invest it, and they will not produce "on their own" to bless others. Our productivity unto others determines our eternal harvest.
This year, rainfall throughout Europe has been well below average. As we have said before, the Lord's spiritual emphasis shifted towards Europe as a result of the spirit of delay that America allowed to manifest in May 2005. Therefore, the low rainfall throughout Europe is a spiritual manifestation of the black horse of scarcity that God has sent throughout Europe to prepare her for the latter-rain revival a few years from now.
The countries hardest hit by the low rainfall in Europe are France, Spain, and Portugal, which happen to be the westernmost countries on the European continent. This is no coincidence. As we have said before, the black horse comes against the spirit of Cain that morphs into "Balaam" and flees "west" to escape from God's will.
In the meantime, the Lord has provoked a dramatic rise in the price of crude oil, which is also known as "black gold". This has led to dramatic increases in gas prices throughout the world. This rise in prices has been triggered by the recent increase in oil demand by "eastern" countries such as China and India. The countries most directly affected by the hike in oil prices are the industrialized Western nations, which are greatly reliant on petroleum energy. The insufficient supply of crude oil, therefore, is another manifestation of the "west-attacking" black horse of scarcity, which, in the physical realm, always targets economies.
Portugal, Spain's small neighbor to the west, is being ravaged by massive wildfires that have been worsened by the dry and hot weather. The Portuguese wildfires are the worst in decades and have already destroyed some 337,000 acres. As we have said before, the black horse is spiritually related to the "baptism of fire". Therefore, Portugal's wildfires are another manifestation of the black horse of scarcity.
Meanwhile, western France is sharing in the drought that Spain is going through. Just like Spain's rivers, France's rivers are drying up and French farmers are very worried about the effect this drought is having on their crops.
A week ago (on August 16, 2005), a West Caribbean Airways plane took off from Panama and was on its way to the French Caribbean island of Martinique when it crashed in the westernmost region of Venezuela. All 160 on board died in the crash, including its 152 passengers, which were all French citizens returning to Martinique after a short vacation in Panama, a country to the west of Martinique.
Martinique is a small island in the eastern Caribbean that is still dependent on France, despite its distance from Europe. Therefore, this crash is a prophetic figure of how God will not allow the French to return from their western "hideout" untransformed. The westward trip of these French citizens from Martinique to Panama is a figure of Cain escaping from the red horse by fleeing west, away from God's will and ways. Their eastward return back to Martinique represents their return to the "land of dependence". However, once the Lord has sent His red horse, there is no turning back. If you refuse to heed the red-horse shout, choosing instead to stay under Cain's leadership, you will be exposed to the black horse of scarcity that brings judgments on human dependence. If you still refuse to break away from human dependence, God will send the green horse ridden by Death and followed by Sheol (Revelation 6:7-8). This is the horse that the West Caribbean Airways flight encountered when it crashed. According to a Yahoo! News report, this is the deadliest crash in Venezuelan history; a depressing "Sheol" atmosphere enveloped rescue workers who had to go through the wreckage.
The name "Martinique" is derived from the name "Martin". "Coincidentally", "Saint Martin of Tours" is the patron saint of France. This means that God is coming against the spirits (and their ministers) in whom France has placed its dependent trust.
According to a name-meaning website, the name "Martin" is derived from "Mars", the Roman "god" of war, and is the name of the "red" planet. This confirms the fact that those who went west from Martinique are a figure of those who are escaping from the red horse of internal war and heading west towards a safe spiritual refuge where they can preserve their human structures and traditions.
There is a prophetic reason why this plane went down immediately after it entered Venezuelan territory. Venezuela is currently ruled by a rambling fool named Hugo Chavez (cursed is he). This dictator has consolidated his power by taking away freedoms of the press and by befriending idiots of the same ilk such as fidel castro. Therefore, Hugo Chavez is a figure of a stubborn Cain who will do anything to silence any dissenting red-horse "Abel". Many Venezuelans rose up in opposition to this tyrant, and they forced him to hold a referendum to determine whether he should be allowed to continue in power. Hugo Chavez, however, successfully used class warfare and appealed to the "victim complex" in Venezuela's poorer people, which led to him surviving the referendum. Many argue that Hugo Chavez committed fraud, but, whether this was the case or not, it is evident that the number of Venezuelans who chose to support Chavez was significant enough to ensure his victory without having to commit blatant fraud. Venezuela had a chance to be free, but it chose to remain dependent on their Cain. Venezuela's poor were duped into thinking that they could not survive without a communist strongman, and they sold their freedom for a few morsels of temporary economic benefits. Venezuela is a figure of people who choose to be dependent. That is the reason why God brought down the West Caribbean plane immediately after it entered Venezuelan air space. The black and green horses come against the dependence on dictatorships. The black horse gives people a last chance, and the green horse destroys those who passed up on that last chance.
"Coincidentally", on the same day (August 16, 2005) that God was judging French dependency in the Martinique-bound plane crash, a NATO helicopter crashed in Herat, a region in western Afghanistan, killing 17 Spanish peacekeepers. According to a Yahoo! News report, 5 were injured in a second Spanish helicopter that was forced to make an emergency landing as the other chopper crashed to the ground. The crew of both helicopters were part of the 4th airborne battalion based in Seville, a city in western Spain.
Even though the cause of the chopper accidents is unclear, some believe that the chopper where 5 were wounded hit the other chopper in the air, causing the death of the 17. As we have said before, the number "5" represents "ministerial grace to serve", which means that the second helicopter represents the ministers on whom many believers have become permanently dependent. As we have also said before, the number "17" represents the manifestation of God's prophetic remnant. Therefore, the death of the 17 Spanish peacekeepers is a figure of how permanent dependence on "ministers" ("5") leads to the death of one's prophetic-remnant calling.
Just as the Lord is hitting the west-European countries of Spain and France with drought, He prompted two flight accidents for each country on the same day, and both happened in the western-border regions of the countries where they came down. God is sending His black and green horses against those who are fleeing west to escape from His red horse. God is judging dependence on man, and those who resist His judgment will not escape the consequences.
You have to decide what you want to live under. You can either choose to live like a comfortable slave under the dictatorship of man, or live like a growing freeman under the Lordship of God. There is no middle ground, and time is up!
In Revelation chapter 16, the Lord delineates 7 judgment vials that correspond to each of the 7 types of evil spirits. You can pray the respective vial over any spirit you are attacking through prophetic intercession. God willing, we will have a future posting where we study these vials in greater detail:
Whenever any believer moves in the apostolic spirit, he or she acts as a fountain of revelation wisdom. These wisdom "waters" then flow into a spiritual "lake" where they are "stored" so that any believer with the teaching spirit may organize this wisdom and distribute it to other believers. Apostles act as "wisdom rivers" and teachers act as "wisdom lakes". When you move in the apostolic spirit, you become a herald of spiritual laws and principles. When you move in the teaching spirit, you become a "warehouse" of those laws and principles, a living "warehouse" that organizes them in such a way that fellow believers may understand and apply them as easily as possible.
As we have said before, the Jebusite spirit is the apostolic spirit "gone bad" and the Girgashite spirit is the teaching spirit "gone bad". Therefore, when things go awry, the Jebusites become the "wisdom rivers" and the Girgashites become the "wisdom lakes". However, the "wisdom" that Jebusites produce (and Girgashites store up) is earthly wisdom, not spiritual wisdom. Jebusites operate in earthly wisdom that produces earthly laws and principles. As the Girgashite spirit of earthly, literal understanding becomes more and more prevalent, the earthly laws and principles heralded by the Jebusites become more and more revered. As this happens, the Jebusites become venerated "gurus", and their followers turn into blind and simplistic Perizzite believers of everything that the Jebusites spew out of their mouths.
As we have said before, God's judgments reveal the hidden roots of sin and iniquity. Therefore, when the Lord comes against the Jebusite spirit, He exposes the falsehood of the revered Jebusite "wisdom". Jebusites like to pose as "spiritual" authority figures who make "wise" judgments and enforce "God's laws". However, since they are disconnected from God's Spirit, all their wisdom and law enforcement is done at the soul level. When they come up against a believer who is truly operating in the Spirit, Jebusites think that the believer is in the "flesh" while they are in the "spirit". In other words, they see themselves as the "male spirit" trying to rein in the rebellious believer's "female soul", when, in fact, it is the other way around. Without realizing it, Jebusites are trying to submit the "male" spirit of God under their "female" souls. When they see God's spirit refusing to submit under their souls, they burst into a fit of "indignant" rage. Jebusites believe that this anger is based on spiritual indignation justified by God, when, in fact, it is nothing more than fleshly wrath born out of an ignorant "female" soul. To God, the Jebusite's rage outburst is like the menstruation of a woman that is pretending to be a man:
"And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people" (Leviticus 20:18)
[Notice how menstruation is associated with the word "fountain"]
"6For thus hath the LORD of hosts said, Hew ye down trees, and cast a mount against Jerusalem: this is the city to be visited; she is wholly oppression in the midst of her. 7As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds." (Jeremiah 6:6-7)
[Notice how Jerusalem is referred to as a "female".Notice also how the Lord says that Jerusalem is "wholly oppression" (v6), which points to the spirit of legalistic Jebusite oppression. The "grief" and "wounds" of verse 7 are the unrighteous punishment that Jebusites inflict upon believers who do not abide by their earthly laws and doctrines. When referred to in a negative sense, "Jerusalem" is used in Scripture to refer to the "system of human religiosity" inside the Church.]
Jebusites, therefore, are bloody fountains of menstrual rage. Wrath is not inherently wrong, but it is wrong when it is not manifested under the Sun of Righteousness:
Many preachers who understand Scripture in a literal way think that the passage above means that we cannot be angry for more than one calendar day! Others think that it speaks about married couples not going to sleep angry! However, the passage above is speaking about the "Sun of Righteousness", not about the burning star in the center of the solar system!
"1For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall." (Malachi 4:1-2)
[Notice that God comes to remove roots (v1). God's judgment sword always attacks the roots of the issue (Matthew 3:10, Hebrews 4:12). God's righteousness comes to destroy the promoters of unrighteousness and to strengthen and build up the seekers of righteousness.]
Therefore, when Ephesians 4:26 says that we must now allow the "sun" to go down upon our wrath, the Lord is saying that we must be sure that our wrath is always based on God's righteousness and judgments, not on our own personal interests or emotions (and we must not condemn others if God has already forgiven them - Acts 10:15). The Jebusites' anger is based on soul interests and judgments, not on the understanding of the spirit-man that God places within each believer. This is the reason why the verse prior to Ephesians 4:25-26 speaks of the "new man" in us:
"And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness" (Ephesians 4:24)
When we judge "in the soul", our judgments become abhorrent to God. When we judge in the "new man", our judgments are righteous and pleasant to God because the "new man" in us is "after God", "created in righteousness and true holiness". Jebusites are menstrual "soul judges". True apostles are "spiritual judges" who can judge all things (1 Corinthians 2:13-16). When you abide in the "new man", you become a "true apostle".
As we said above, Jebusites are murderers by nature. This means that a place that allows Jebusite "wisdom" to flourish must do it at the price of much righteous blood being shed. Therefore, the rivers of Jebusite "wisdom" are always red with innocent blood. Jebusite rivers are bloody rivers.
From all of the above, we can see why the vial that brings judgment against the Jebusites is the 3rd vial (Revelation 16:4-7). God's judgments against the Jebusites come to expose the Jebusites' bloody fountains of menstrual rage and their bloody rivers of murderous "wisdom". Places like Spain where Jebusites are allowed to flourish have their soil red with much blood. That blood includes the menstrual blood of Jebusites as well as the blood of the innocently murdered.
In the Spanish drought, the rivers are being dried up, and the red, clayey riverbeds are being exposed. God is bringing the Jebusite rivers of "wisdom" to naught, exposing them for what they really are: empty "wisdom" with no fruit and with an unrighteously bloody foundation.
Just like Eve in the garden of Eden, Canaanites are self-deceiving by nature (1 Timothy 2:14). Since Canaanites shut off their judgment-making mind, they can easily disregard the cold, hard facts presented before them and pretend like they are "right". Since they are ruled by their runaway emotions, they convince themselves into justifying whatever "feels" right to them. As a prophetic people, we must be willing to prophetically discern what is right and what is wrong, and that discernment will involve our emotions, but that does not mean that we should ignore facts. The Lord has endowed us with His prophetic anointing so that we may perceive the direction in which truth will be found, but, once we are heading in the right direction, we must use apostolic judgment to verify and specify the truths we find. If we have a heart bent towards God's righteousness (Ecclesiastes 10:2), the prophetic Holy Spirit will guide us to all truth (John 16:7-15), including the truth that is invisible to the natural mind. Once we find that "invisible" truth, however, our minds will be opened to that "new" truth, and that truth will become clear, "logical", and visible to us. In other words, the prophetic anointing may prompt us to do things that seem "crazy" to the natural mind, but, as we walk in that anointing with a truth-seeking heart, those things that initially seemed "crazy" will become spiritually logical and evident.
While God's left-handed prophetic anointing eventually guides us towards right-handed truth, Canaanite left-handed emotionalism leads into a spiral of self-deceit that gets you further and further away from the truth the longer you go. This is the spiritual reason why Canaanite Spain deceives itself by wasting so much water on tourist areas. It is her way of saying,
"I am not dry; I am a green paradise island. We are not a backward culture dried up by Jebusite oppression; we are a vibrant and progressive culture full of fun and life. Who says we need help?"
For many, many years, I have known of Spain as an "arid region where water is scarce". Therefore, I was surprised to learn that it is the European country that consumes the most water per capita and where water is the cheapest. This once again points to Spanish self-deceit. According to ecologists, if Spain continues with its current rate of water consumption, a third of Spain will become a complete desert in 50 years. As we have said before, the number "50" speaks of Pentecostal outpouring. Therefore, it is spiritually ironic that a number that speaks of prophetic rains points to desert dryness when it comes to Spain.
Spain may pretend to be two-thirds wet, but it is dry in the "third" that counts. Spain may pretend to be "physically wet" (because of the way it consumes physical water), and she may pretend to be "soulishly wet" (because of its arts and dance culture), but the Lord is revealing it to be "spiritually dry", because it refuses to heed God's rhema word. That is the reason why, at the current pace, a third (1/3) of Spain is projected to become a desert within 50 years.
Spain is going through its worst drought since 1947. As we have said before, the number "47" is related in Scripture to the mighty "River of God" (Ezekiel 47:1-12). Therefore, the 1947 drought is a manifestation of spiritual contrast. In the year whose number represents the River of God ('47), God cast Spain under the curse of a terrible drought to prove to the Spanish people that they are really dry, no matter how "wet" they perceive themselves to be in their Canaanite-mad minds. It is the Lord's way of saying,
"In the year when you should be wonderfully wet, you are shamefully dry; I am the Lord, and no self-deceit shall prevail against My Truth"
1947 was also the year when the "Dead Sea Scrolls" were discovered. These were ancient scrolls that were found near the Dead Sea in what is now Israel. These scrolls were 1,000 years older than the oldest Masoretic Old Testament manuscripts available at the time. Despite the 1,000 year difference, however, the text written on the Dead Sea scrolls was almost identical, word for word, with the Masoretic manuscripts, which certified the historical reliability of the Old Testament and helped to discredit those who argue that the Bible cannot be trusted because it has been supposedly distorted from the original text as it has been hand-copied through the centuries.
The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947 by a Bedouin shepherd who went into a cave in the desert as he searched for his lost goat. This is no spiritual coincidence, since Ezekiel 47 speaks of En-Gadi, which literally means, "fountain of the kid (goat)":
"10And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. 11But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt." (Ezekiel 47:10-11)
The Dead Sea is the lowest body of water on Earth, some 1300 ft. below sea level. The waters of the Jordan River flow into it from the north, and, even though it has no exit point, the Dead Sea's water level never rises; this is because all the new water that flows into it is quickly evaporated by the surrounding desert heat. The Dead Sea's water is 6 times saltier than ocean water, which means that no marine life can live in it. Any fish that swims into the Dead Sea from outside waters quickly dies. The water is so dense that people can literally float on its surface without sinking.
The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were both in the Dead Sea area. Gomorrah is believed to be currently covered by the Dead Sea, which means that Gomorrah is a "drowned" city. Therefore, the Dead Sea is a physical manifestation of God's judgment against places that refuse His transformation logos and choose to be bogged down in Canaanite unrighteousness (Sodom) and mired in Girgashite stagnation (Gomorrah):
"12And when ye come into an house, salute it. 13And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city." (Matthew 10:12-15)
The Sodoms and Gomorrahs shall be turned into "marshes" and "miry places", and they shall be "given to salt" (Ezekiel 47:11). This is the reason why the Dead Sea is now so saturated with salt. In Scripture, salt is related to the prophetic and apostolic ministries:
"49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another." (Mark 9:49-50)
[In Scripture, "fire" is associated with God's purifying judgments (Zechariah 13:8-9). Therefore, verse 49 means that salt is associated with the apostolic spirit of judgments. Verse 49 also associates salt with "sacrifices", which means that it is also connected to the prophetic spirit, since the prophetic anointing prompts us to shed ourselves in sacrifice for others.
In verse 50, the word "good" was translated from the Greek word kalos, which, as we have said before, refers to prophetic usefulness. Therefore, salt is in essence a figure of our prophetic grace. Through our presence on Earth, we, as the "salt of the Earth" (Matthew 5:13), give "flavor" or "grace" to what would otherwise be a dull and stagnant Girgashite Earth.
Our prophetic salt, however, also comes with apostolic judgments. When salt is poured over a wound, it "burns". In the old days, salt was used to preserve meats because salt acts as a "bacteria killer", which is a figure of "unrighteousness-killing judgments".]
When Lot and his family fled Sodom, God turned Lot's wife into a pillar of salt because she looked back toward Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:26). As we have said before, Girgashites are backward-looking. Therefore, when Lot's wife looked back, she was reneging on her role as prophetic salt to Girgashite Gomorrah and to her role as apostolic salt to Canaanite Sodom. When God turned her into salt, He was telling her:
"You shall be as salt to Sodom and Gomorrah, whether you like it or not. If you refuse to be as salt in your life, you shall be as salt in your death, for you shall serve as an eternal example of my abhorrence of the Canaanite and Girgashite spirits."
The Dead Sea has the ancient land of Moab to the east and the ancient land of Judah to the west. The Moabites are descendants of Lot's older daughter when she had an incestuous relationship with her father (Genesis 19:30-38). A close study of Genesis chapter 19 reveals that the Moabites were born out of the Jebusite spirit in the lives of Lot and her older daughter (God willing, we will post a future article on this). Moab, therefore, speaks of the Jebusite spirit. When Moabites solidify their Jebusite oppression, they become arrogant, which means that Moabites are prone to becoming proud Amorites as well, as shown by Isaiah 16:6:
"We have heard of the pride of Moab; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so." (Isaiah 16:6)
[Notice the reference to Moab's wrath, which points to the Jebusite anger mentioned above]
Therefore, the land of Moab to the east of the Dead Sea speaks of the Jebusite-Amorite spirit.
Genesis chapter 38 (=19 x 2) reveals that Judah was a shepherd (i.e.- pastor) by trade. As we have said before, pastors who stray from God's will turn into Canaanites, and Genesis 38 reveals the Canaanite tendencies in Judah. A close study of this chapter also reveals that Judah had streaks of Amorite fornication in him. Therefore, the land of Judah to the right of the Dead Sea speaks of the Canaanite-Amorite spirit.
Since the Dead Sea is bound by Moab on the right (i.e.- east) and Judah on the left (i.e.- west), we can conclude that a place influenced by Jebusite-Amorites on the right and Canaanite-Amorites on the left attracts a judgment of God that turns that place into a salty "Dead Sea". Notice that Spain possesses the 3 evil spirits involved here: the Jebusites, the Canaanites, and the Amorites. It's no wonder that Spain suffered a major drought the year that the Dead Sea Scrolls were found!!!
God is equating Spain with a spiritual "Dead Sea". When Sodom and Gomorrah became entrenched in their unrighteousness and traditions, God brought destruction upon them. In the same way, God shall bring destruction against the generation in Spain that is "Amoritely" entrenched in Jebusite oppression and Canaanite immorality. He shall expose Spain for what it is, a "spiritual desert land".
"5Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited." (Jeremiah 17:5-6)
[A heart that "departs from the Lord" (v5) is a proud heart that becomes determined against the Lord's will. Therefore, it speaks of Amorite pride.]
The Dead Sea Scrolls included the entire book of Isaiah, as well as fragments from every book in the Old Testament except for Esther. There is a prophetic reason why all of Isaiah was found in these scrolls. Isaiah is the book that most explicitly speaks about deserts being turned into rivers:
"17When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. 18I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. 19I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: 20That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it." (Isaiah 41:17-20)
Spain shall be made aware that she is like the salty waters of the Dead Sea, and she will beg for fresh waters from above. When those rains come, Spain shall be restored and God shall be glorified. One year after the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, in 1948, the nation of Israel was reborn. Before 1948, the southern Negev desert to the east of the Dead Sea was nothing more than a dry and isolated wilderness with roaming Bedouins. Nowadays, many parts of the Negev desert have been turned into fruitful and fertile cultivated areas. The whole region of Palestine has been turned from a backward and rundown region of poor villages into a prosperous and modern nation. So shall God do with Spain in the spirit realm. He will overcome the Perizzite spirit of village poverty in Spain and open her to prophetic fruitfulness.
The same cannot be said for most of Spanish America, however. As we have said before, God shall turn most of Latin America into a spiritual swamp. God brought spiritual revival to Latin America, but she chose to abuse the grace she was given. Therefore, Latin America, as a region, shall receive a spiritual judgment worse than the one for Sodom and Gomorrah, for if Sodom had received what Latin America received, she would still be standing today (Matthew 11:23). While God's River shall flow over many regions of the world, Latin America will become spiritually dead like the Dead Sea, and it will be evident to all. At the present time, only Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay remain in hopes of escaping God's spiritual judgment. They still have the opportunity to swim in the River of God.
The ministry most directly related to music in Scripture is the prophetic ministry (2 Kings 3:15, 1 Samuel 10:15). When one listens to Spain's music, it becomes evident that there is a strong prophetic influence hidden inside Spain. Around 1988, a Spanish group called "Duncan Dhu" released a song called "En algún lugar" ("Somewhere") that became very popular throughout Spanish-speaking countries. These are the song's lyrics, translated to English:
Somewhere in a great country
They forgot to build
A home where the sun will not scorch
Of their magic, granted to them, without them asking for it
Long before they were born
But none of them lead out
The grass burns
With the sundown fire
a horse rider is seen, who is leaving with the wind
mothers who don't know how to cry any more
Notice how the first paragraph speaks prophetically about the emotional dryness of Jebusite and Girgashite oppression; it speaks of Girgashite temporality as opposed to prophetic eternity. The 2nd paragraph speaks of people born with prophetic gifts that go undiscovered and undeveloped because of the Girgashite structures and Jebusite enforcement. The 3rd paragraph speaks of the "black hole" of Girgashite selfishness and anti-prophetic purposelessness where people go nowhere. The reference to the "grass burning with the sundown fire" speaks of the consuming black horse that comes shortly before the religious leadership is swallowed up by the ground, "Korah-style".
The 4th paragraph speaks of the red horse that comes to bring change but who is rejected and must leave the lovers of Girgashite coverings to head for the wilderness. The "whistle" mentioned here speaks of God's red-horse shout calling His people out of the human structures. The rider's "shout" emphasizes this.
The last paragraph speaks of the black horse revealing the emptiness in the Girgashite dust of earthliness. It then speaks of men who have lost their sense of spiritual manhood as a result of Jebusite oppression. It then speaks of souls (represented by "mothers") who see their prophetic visions and dreams (the "sons") leaving without ever returning; this, therefore, speaks of souls that "go Perizzite" and lose their ability to dream and hope. As this happens, people become complacently comfortable with their spiritual dryness. That is what is meant by the lines "Sadness has no place here when the sad thing is to live".
The prophetic spirit trapped inside Spain can also be seen in music by singers such as Miguel Bosé, José Luis Perales, and in groups such as Mocedades, and in the 1970s songs by people such as Julio Iglesias. Just like France, Spain has a prophet calling inside of it that has been repressed for centuries by the dominant evil spirits in that country. But there is a prophetic word for Spain. Just as God will do with France, Spain's prophetic calling shall be brought forth and manifested in these latter days. God will break through the Amorite arrogance, Jebusite oppression, and the Canaanite fury of the Spanish people, and He will birth a new nation that will glorify His Name in these latter days. This is God's word for Spain:
"22For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you. 23But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you; 24Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company." (Romans 15:22-24)
"28When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain. 29And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ." (Romans 15:28-29)
After God finishes visiting all of Europe, He will visit the westernmost countries on the European continent: France, Spain, and Portugal, and God's Name shall be feared in the west of Europe:
"19So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. 20And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD." (Isaiah 59:19-20)
"Coincidentally", the name "Spain" literally means "scarceness". In the latter days, the Jebusite-induced scarceness in Spain shall be revealed, destroyed, and be no more. Then, it will "rain" in the dry land of Spain.
