Prophetic word for today (p.i.)

Stowaway

First preliminary posting: August 27, 2006

E-mailed: March 19, 2006

Word received by: Paula Gibbs

 

What I remember about this dream is that it was longer than what I can tell you. I knew that I had three houses, and I knew they were full of people, or had people living in them. I was all over the place, going here and there, and slapping people on the back, saying "Hey! I remember you!", and then telling them how smart they looked in their armour. [There was] one guy I apparently hadn't seen for a while, and I said, "Oh, my gosh! How have you been?", and he was blushing and saying "Fine", and we hugged; and I said his armour was splendid-looking. it was silver overlaid on blue, with leather underneath. The rest of the description was unknown to me, but so beautiful. I could not take my eyes off it, but I knew ... I must. So I continued on saying I would see him later, and, then, I walked into an area where there was this odd house. Inside was a woman and two children. They were having a meal. I thought nothing of my being in the house nor was she surprised to see me. I noted they seemed drab but able to get along.

 

Then I left and met more soldiers, many, many soldiers. I inspected stockpiled goods and places of safety and things too numerous to mention. Then I met this man. He was in an odd red crossed outfit; the crossing of the red was like thick flannel, and it was crossing over his chest to make moving under the armour. His hair was long and reddish. He has a mustache and a beard, also reddish. Then he saw me, and his face lit up and he said "Hello". I wondered some at that, and I said, "Hello". We talked for a moment, and, then, he showed me he had just cut his long hair. I was suddenly whipped back into the dream, back several places, and had to do over, and a voice came to me and said, "Tell the man with the crossed red flannel not to cut his hair; he will die if he does". So, as I approached that part of the dream again; I saw him, and, again, as before, he looked at me and smiled, his eyes lighting up. I said, "Do not cut your hair; if you do, you will die", and, he said, "It is tradition", and, I said, "If you cut your hair, you will die". And, so, he dipped his head and smiled and said he would take my advice. I then saw him putting on his armour, and it was very interesting armour, but I cannot describe it like the other man's.

 

Then, I went down several houses, inspecting them ... which I though was odd, and, then, ended up again in that woman's house with the two children. As I walked in, I noticed a nasty-looking man with like hoodlum clothes on (like a biker, for lack of a better description) lounging in the living room. A woman stood near him attentive to what he was saying. The woman and children were in the kitchen, still eating. I heard a noise and went back into the living room, and, through the blinds, where they sagged, I noticed a great big green machine. I can only say it reminded me of a tank. It was green like grass. It stopped by the corner of her house, and I felt a sense of foreboding and went to the kitchen and told the woman to gather some food and get the children and leave as quickly as possible. She stumbled with understanding and, finally, I said, "You go and get some clothes for yourself and the children; we must leave". She hurriedly left the kitchen with a bag, and the kids helped me pack some food in two bags ... pillowcases, actually, because they would not make any noise. I woke up before the woman came back...

 

{In a follow-up email that same day, sister Paula added a few sentences she had not included in the first e-mail; these are the sentences, which replace the last sentence above...}

 

I was going back to check the living room, and the man with red long hair I had asked not to cut came breaking through the door. He had his armour on, sword raised, and said "Quick, let's go!". The two people in the living room never moved... Then I woke up and didn't see anything else....

 

Our brief comments

 

Fellow believer, I wish I could express how meaningful this dream was in my personal life. The e-mail that this dream was sent in had the following in the "Subject" field: "This dream seems rather important; I felt [a] strong urge to send it....". On the morning of March 19, 2006, as I woke up from one of the most bitter and despair-filled afternoons and nights of my entire life, I was longing from a word of the Lord as to what I had to do. I was in the middle of a Sheol experience in which I had been turned into an "Azazel goat" (i.e.- a scapegoat ... Leviticus 16:8-10). I checked for incoming email, in the hopes that God would shed some light of direction (and hope) upon my dark experience inside the fish's belly. That's when this email, along with another email, came in. I was stunned at the details illustrated in this dream. It's as if sister Paula had been fully informed of my personal situation and of everything I had thought, said, done, and experienced on March 18, 2006 (the day before). This dream not only illustrated my current situation, but it also made me understand what I had to do in the days ahead. There are many elements in this dream which have yet to be revealed to my heart, but one thing that is evident is that this dream speaks about things happening in the spirit realm that have to do with the UK, the US, and the latter-rain revival in the years ahead.

 

This dream has several elements to consider:

bullet

Sister Paula uses the word "armour" 5 times in the original version of the dream. Even though sister Paula was writing from America, she used the British spelling of the word; in American English, this word is spelled "armor" (without the "u"). I was about to remove the "u"s, treating them as "typos", when the Lord told me to leave them there. The Lord then spoke the following to my heart:

 

bullet

The number of times "armour" appears in the dream's original version is 5, which represents ministerial grace. Therefore, the "armour" mentioned throughout the dream has to do with the endowment of ministerial grace.

 

bullet

The British spelling of the word uses 6 letters, while the American spelling uses 5. This is a figure of how God found that the American Church was too enamored with its "ministerial grace" ("5") and was unwilling to make the transition from grace ("5") to weakness ("6"). By contrast, He found that transition to be feasible in the UK. That is the reason why the British spelling "reaches" 6 letters while the American spelling remained at 5.

 

bullet

The letter that propels the British spelling of "armour" from 5 letters to 6 is the letter "u". In other words, it is impossible to make the transition from "5" to "6" without recognizing that "u" (i.e.- you), fellow believer, are endowed with the "armour" of ministerial grace. When a person is willing to say "I have ministerial grace", but is unable to say, "U have ministerial grace", he or she will not make the transition from "5" to "6", because that transition requires accepting the truth that we draw ministerial grace upon our lives as we expose the weakness of our humanity before God, not because we somehow belong to a "privileged" caste that is inherently superior to the rest of human beings. We are endowed with grace solely on account of our humanity, not our "super-humanity". That is something that the American Church was systematically unwilling to understand.

 

The letter "u" in "armour" appears right before the letter "r". Therefore, those who are willing to make the transition from "5" to "6" are those who are willing to declare, "U R a minister of our God" (Isaiah 61:6).

 

bullet

The dream mentions 4 houses, 3 at the very beginning and 1 (the "odd" house) later on. These 4 houses are the 4 horses of the Apocalypse. The numerous people in the first 3 houses represent the great number of believers who are already moving in the anointing of the white, red, and black horses of the Apocalypse. The people in the "odd" house represent the believers who are willing to move in the green horse. Because of its "oddness", this house is not very popular and remains sparsely populated. As we have said before, the green-horse anointing calls you to go on "failed expeditions" that are ludicrous to the natural mind but which unleash massive events in the spirit and natural realms. Under the green-horse anointing, you are called to bear the iniquity of others, and you are forced to bear judgments from God against you as if you had committed the crimes you have judged others for. This is what the Lord Jesus did at Golgotha, and that is what we too are called to do in Him (Colossians 1:24, 2 Timothy 2:12, 1 Peter 4:13-14).

Sister Paula uses the word "guy" to describe the fellow with the splendid-looking armour that suddenly appeared. Because of the things that happened to me, starting on March 17, 2006 (which was a "green day" in New York on account of "St. Patrick's Day"), I have the Spirit's clear witness that the little word "guy" has profound spiritual significance. This meaning may be discerned as you meditate on the origins of the popular word "guy"; there are two wikipedia.org articles which may be of help.

 

bullet

The "guy's" armour was silver overlaid with blue, with leather underneath. This points to the following:

 

bullet

As we have said before, silver in Scripture, when used in a positive context, refers to "mental purity", i.e.- a mind that is fully operating in the righteous judgments of God.

 

bullet

The color "blue" points to the "blue prayer shawl" that green-horse riders are willing to be wrapped in in order to be taken to Sheol for the sake of others. The color "blue" also points to the UK, since, as we have said before, the Lord has been using "blue" to refer prophetically to the UK in these latter days.

 

bullet

"Leather" is produced by tanning the skin of animals. The only times that "tanning" is explicitly referred to in Scripture are in 3 verses (Acts 9:43, Acts 10:6, Acts 10:32), which speak of Simon Peter lodging with "Simon the tanner":

 

"5And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: 6He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do." (Acts 10:5-6)

 

The word "Joppa" in verse 5 (which refers to the modern city of Jaffa) literally means, "Beautiful". Therefore, it refers to the beauty of ministerial grace, which correlates with the fact that the verse number is "5" (the number "5" speaks of "ministerial grace"). This is the reason why verse 5 focuses on Simon Peter, since he was the man assigned by God to minister to Cornelius the centurion along with his family and friends.

 

The "sea" mentioned in verse 6 above refers to the nations of the Earth and to the prophetic God-potential hidden in them. Shortly after the passage quoted above, the Lord confronts Simon Peter for not seeing the potential of the "heathens", the "Gentiles" who lived outside the realm of his religious structures and paradigms:

 

"9On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: 10And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, 11And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: 12Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 13And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. 14But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 15And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 16This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven. 17Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate, 18And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there." (Acts 10:9-18)

 

Therefore, when the Lord sent Simon Peter to reside in a house "by the sea side", He was prompting Simon Peter to "behold the sea". As the sun would set in the horizon every afternoon, the Lord wanted Simon Peter to stand by the sea shore and visualize the great God-potential in the vast, shining sea before him. Yet, Simon Peter was too entrenched in his religious paradigms to see that potential. He was too enthralled by the "Jaffa" beauty of the grace that God had endowed the Jewish people with. In the same way, America was too entrenched in the blessings God has graced her with to see any potential in "heathen" Europe.

 

Therefore, the armour of "silver overlaid with blue", with leather underneath, refers to the green-horse riders who have abided in the silver purity of God's judgments and who are willing to be wrapped in the blue prayer shawl and be taken to "unwanted" places because of the potential they see in the sea (for they have been taken to the house of "Simon the leather tanner" and have beheld the sea with the eyes of the Spirit). Such believers have understood that the kairos door has been opened, and that the "sea" is pliable and ready for harvest. The potential, buried as it was, had always been there, but the time has come for its full manifestation. This visualizing of the God-potential in the "sea" hinges on understanding the New Covenant, for the brother who does not see the God-potential in the "little" sister sitting beside him at church will in no way visualize the God-potential in Europe, the Arab nations, and nations beyond.

The fact that the "guy" blushed when sister Paula greeted him reveals his humility. Even though his armour was impressively beautiful, he never allowed that armour to deceive him. Because of this, sister Paula felt that she "must" take her eyes off the beautiful armour. There was something in the "guy" that prompted people not to focus too much on the armour but on his humanity. As we have studied before, those with the Elisha anointing are those who do not allow themselves to be "utterly awe-struck" by the flashiness of others' grace because they always remain aware of the weak human being standing behind all that grace (2 Kings 2:9-11). Those with the Elisha anointing are constantly imparting that understanding to others, which prevents others from "admiring" them too much. Once an "Elisha" begins to accept the reverence of others, he or she falls from his or her Elisha grace, and becomes just one more of the "revered ministers" cast off by the Lord God.

 

bullet

In the odd house, the mother and the 2 children "seemed drab but able to get along". This speaks of an external atmosphere of scarcity or "dullness" but with peace inside:

 

"16Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith. 17Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith." (Proverbs 15:16-17)

 

Even though the American Church is a land of "great treasure" (because of the wealth of its accumulated resources), it is a land with little "fear of the Lord" (v16), for, where the fear of man abides, the fear of the Lord cannot (Matthew 10:26-28). The American Church still reveres its "ministers" and its "ministerial structures" too much to fear the Lord. Therefore, anyone inserted into the American Church system who fears the Lord more than man will immediately be hounded with "trouble" (v16) from Girgashites who believe in religious hierarchies and "procedures" of no eternal value.

 

The word "herbs" in verse 17 above was translated from the Hebrew word yaraq, which is derived from the word yereq meaning "green"; this emphasizes the spiritual connection between the "odd house" in the dream and the green horse of the Apocalypse. "Oxen" (when referred to in a negative sense) speak of Amorite strength. The American Church remains externally "strong", even if it has already been weakened into a pathetic Korah in the spirit realm, and is unwilling to admit to that weakness. By contrast, God's green-horse riders are willing to expose themselves in vulnerability in order to act as bait that lures the enemy to its utter destruction. Through their exposed weakness, they draw the vengeful Canaanite hatred of Korah, who is out to preserve the dominion of the soul over the Spirit at all costs.

 

Because of the above, the "odd green house" is inhabited by green-horse believers with "little treasure" and with a "dinner of herbs"; these are believers who are not willing to compromise their peace with God for the sake of the "great treasures" and "ox strength" of the religious system they are out to destroy. They therefore flee from the Girgashite trouble and Canaanite hatred that comes against them on account of their fear of the Lord (v16) and their willingness to appear weak before the world (v17). Their "fleeing", however, is through death. After they are killed by Korah, who can only kill the body, they preserve the spiritual sanctity of their souls, and are given a "high tower of refuge" where they can hide for a season as God unleashes His revenge. This place of refuge has a certain amount of peace, but it remains a temporary holding place where the green-horse souls remain restless as they await for God to vindicate them before all (Revelation 6:9-11).

In the dream, sister Paula came across many, many soldiers. This points to the latter-rain army of spiritual soldiers that God is raising. As we have said before, after the black horse kills Goliath, the green horse comes to raise an army that "removes" Goliath's carcass and obliterates the enemy. As the green horse has been galloping around the Earth, this army is being raised.

 

The phrase "stockpiled goods" mentioned by sister Paula in the context of these soldiers also speaks of a "spiritual armoury", which refers to the spirits (not the souls) of God's green-horse riders; these spirits shall launch themselves as indestructible missiles against Babylon (i.e.- the matriarchal Earth) to release God's indignation against her.

 

"1The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see. 2Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles. 3I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness. 4The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. 5They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. 6Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty." (Isaiah 13:1-6)

 

As many of you may recall, an armory in Manhattan, NYC (on Lexington Avenue and 26th street) was used as a "family relief center" right after the 9/11 attacks. At that armory, families could seek information on missing relatives. When I heard about the armory on the news, it served as confirmation of a word that the Lord had dropped into my heart shortly after the attacks:

 

"21Go up against the land of Merathaim, even against it, and against the inhabitants of Pekod: waste and utterly destroy after them, saith the LORD, and do according to all that I have commanded thee. 22A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction. 23How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations! 24I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD. 25The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. 26Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left. 27Slay all her bullocks; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation. 28The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple." (Jeremiah 50:21-28)

 

When al-Qaeda attacked the Twin Towers, it was attacking "2 witnesses" who stood as vulnerable green-horse victims in Manhattan's skyline. As opposed to the Empire State Building, the Twin Towers were not "massive blocks of concrete and steel". Instead, they were built using innovative engineering that (according to wikipedia.org and floornature.com) efficiently transferred the bulk of the building's load to hollow steel columns around the external walls. The inner core of cement was separated from the perimeter by a distance of up to 20 meters (66 feet), which made the Twin Towers very "light" for buildings their size. As a result of al-Qaeda's attack on these vulnerable structures, the Lord opened His "armoury" (v25), and He brought forth the weapons of His indignation, which led to the fall of 2 terrorist regimes (in Afghanistan in Iraq) that would otherwise be standing today. Through the fall of the 2 WTC Witnesses, the groundwork has been laid for the manifestation of God's latter-rain revival in the Arab and Persian world in the years to come.

 

"25And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound. 27Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: 28And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err. 29Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. 30And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. 31For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod." (Isaiah 30:25-31)

As I read about the man with the reddish mustache and beard, the word that would constantly crop up in my mind is "Redbeard", which immediately makes me think of pirates. According to wikipedia.org, there is a popular comic books series created and drawn by Belgian & French writers and cartoonists named "Redbeard" ("Barbe-Rouge" in French). This apparently "irrelevant" comic book series reveals the following principles about the "red-bearded" fellow who appeared in the dream:

 
bullet

The series' main character ("Redbeard") is a pirate searching the 7 seas for gold and fortune. Therefore, it speaks of someone who sees an invisible potential in the vast "sea" before him.

 

bullet

Redbeard's ship was called "the Black Falcon". As we have mentioned before, the "falcon" is spiritually related to the red horse of internal war. Therefore, the name "Black Falcon" points to a person under both the red-horse and the black-horse anointings searching for "green" potential in the sea.

 

bullet

In the series, Redbeard has an adopted son named Eric Lerouge ("the red"). Eric was originally the son of a nobleman, but his claim to his father's name was destroyed, leaving him "fatherless" before Redbeard adopted him. According to a names-meaning website, the name "Eric" means "ever-ruler" or "ruler for eternity". As shown by the word "evergreen", the color most directly related to "eternity" is "green". Therefore, it is no coincidence that a famous bearer of the name "Eric" was the 10th century navigator and explorer "Eric the Red", who discovered Greenland. Thus, the name "Eric" is spiritually related to green-horse riders who are willing to renounce the value of their earthly life in order to reach after eternal life, and are willing to go through the death and resurrection process.

 

The combination of the colors "red" and "green" in Eric Lerouge's name points to the "red can" used to refresh the "green" whale that visited London earlier this year.

 

bullet

In the series, Eric Lerouge's original name was Thierry Montfort. According to a names-meaning website, the name "Thierry" is the French form of the ancient Germanic name "Theodoric", which means "ruler of the people". The name "Montfort" is a combination of the French words "mont", meaning "mount" and "fort", meaning "strong"; therefore, "Montfort" literally means "strong mount"; and, as we have seen before, both "strength" and "mounts" are spiritually related to the Amorite spirit of domineering self-exaltation. Thus, Eric's original name "Thierry Montfort" refers to the Amorite ministers who try to exalt themselves as "strong mounts" that rule over the rest of God's people. Therefore, Eric Lerouge's loss of his nobleman status is a figure of believers losing their "ministerial privileges" over the rest of God's people.

 

bullet

In the series, Eric Lerouge did not want to follow in his adoptive father's "pirate" footsteps, choosing instead to live a normal life; however, a great deal of obstacles got in his road to "normalcy". As we have shared before, God's green-horse army is an army of plunderers, of spiritual buccaneers with no reverence for human structures or titles. Many potential green-horse "Eric"s regress from their "buccaneer" calling because of the spiritual "ill repute" that comes with being an irreverent "blasphemer" who holds no regard for the "sacred cows" that arrogantly lie in the way of God's Kingship on Earth. The Jezebelian accusation of "rebellion" becomes so intense that they often feel compelled to pass up on the "blue mantle". The "buccaneer" life is an "abnormal" life, but, ironically, it is the only type of life that can restore the Earth and subject it under the righteous norms of God. The "buccaneer" life is a "limited" life, but, ironically, it is the only type of life that can bring the full liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17, James 1:25) of God's presence to the Earth.

 

The above explains why the red-bearded fellow in the dream wanted to cut his hair. It is tradition for man to have his hair short, a tradition that is even mentioned in Scripture as an acceptable and natural tradition (1 Corinthians 11:14-15). However, Scripture also calls Nazarites (like Samson) to buck this tradition for a season (a season which can last until death), calling them not to cut their hair during the time of their Nazarite vow (Numbers 6:5, Judges 13:7, Judges 16:17). Eric Lerouge wanted a normal, non-buccaneer lifestyle because it went against the accepted traditions; he wanted to "cut his hair" and conform to the traditional lifestyle. However, to rescind on the "Nazarite vow" that he had entered into would have meant spiritual death for him, and he had entered into this "vow" for life by becoming the adopted son of a "Nazarite" buccaneer. He was now a "permanent buc" who was called to "buck the trend" for life.

 

"And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene" (Matthew 2:23)

 

There is no recording in Scripture of a prophecy that literally declares that Jesus would be a "Nazarene" (i.e.- a resident of the literal city of Nazareth). Therefore, the prophecy "He shall be called a Nazarene" is spiritual in nature. The name "Nazareth" comes from the same word as "Nazarite" in Hebrew. Thus, the prophecy is really speaking about the Christ being a spiritual "Nazarite". In Scripture, names point to the person's nature and authority. Therefore, the fact that the Christ would be "called" a "Nazarite" means that the "Nazariteship" would be inherent (i.e.- permanent) in His nature and that His spiritual authority would emanate from that Nazariteship.

 

The word "Nazarite" in Hebrew means "one separated, consecrated". Therefore, God is saying through Matthew 2:23 that the Christ would be one completely separated unto God from birth until death. A close study of Isaiah 7 and 8 (especially 7:14, 7:20, and 8:1-8)shows that this prophecy is spiritually "encrypted" there. Interestingly enough, the Hebrew word for "Nazareth" is literally coded into the Hebrew text of those 2 chapters 5 times (at skips of 38, 235, 386, 471, and 521 characters), and the word for "Nazarite" is encoded 3 times (at skips of 168, 237, and 645 characters).

 

When the eschatological parrots study "Messianic" prophesies, they always associate them to the historical figure of Jesus. Even though there is nothing wrong with that per se (since Yeshua is the Messiah), the error comes when they associate the "Messianic" prophecies to a historical human figure and not to the Anointing in that human. Both the words "Christ" and "Messiah" literally mean "the Anointed One". Therefore, anyone whose heart is "in Christ" (Romans 8:1) becomes one with the "anointing" of the Messiah, and, thus, the "Nazarite calling" in that anointing becomes his or hers as well. You cannot separate the "Nazarite vow" from the "Anointing of Messiah" because, according to Matthew 2:23, that vow is inherent in Messiah. This means that all who are true "Christians" (followers of "Christ", the Anointed One) are spiritual "Nazarites" from birth until death. As Nazarites, they are to act as "buccaneers" who buck the traditions of natural men. They shall do so until the ways of God are established on Earth.

The "Redbeard" comic book series was created by writer Jean-Michel Charlier and drawer Victor Hubinon. According to lambiek.net, Charlier was born in Belgium in 1924, and was probably "the most important writer of realistic adventure comics" of the 20th century, and his works "remain a landmark of European comics". According to lambiek.net, Hubinon was also born in Belgium in 1924, and is "one of the classic artists of Belgian realistic comics" (his last comic was "La Mouette", a story about a female pirate). The Lord had not made me aware of this until a few days ago.

 

It is no spiritual coincidence that both creators of the "Redbeard" series were Belgian. Soon after my harrowing personal experience (alluded to at the top of this word), the Lord sent me on another brief "expedition". Through that expedition, the Lord began to speak to my heart about the spiritual significance of Belgium, a significance I was sincerely oblivious to. On May 3, 2006, the Lord spoke very clearly to my heart, and said, "Belgium represents the influence in Europe of the spirit of compromised division that led to the spiritual civil war in America". This means that Europe is also contaminated by the spirit of divided compromise, and Belgium is one of its main strongholds in Europe. Therefore, it was not surprising for me to read the following remark about Belgium on wikipedia.org: "Straddling the cultural boundary between Germanic and Romance Europe, it is both linguistically and culturally divided". It was of no surprise, either, that the wikipedia.org article would also say:

"Through constitutional reforms in the 1970s and 1980s, regionalisation of the unitary state had led to the establishment of a three-tiered system of federalism, linguistic-community and regional governments, a compromise designed to minimise linguistic tensions. Nowadays, these federal entities uphold more legislative power than the national bicameral parliament." [Emphasis added by us]

 

There is a difference, however, in the degree of influence that the spirit of divided compromise has over Europe versus America. While it can be said that America "has become a Belgium", it can only be said that Europe "has a Belgium". That "Belgium" presence is working to delay God's work in Europe, but that delay is more a "bump in the road" than a "major roadblock", as is the unfortunate case with America.

 

The fact that Redbeard's creators were both born in 1924 has prophetic significance. As we have shared before, the number "24" speaks of spiritual "elders", and the number "19" speaks of an American Church that has stopped on the edge of the Jordan, without moving into "20", the stage at which a mighty spiritual green army would have been raised. Therefore, the number "1924" speaks of how believers in the American Church stayed at "19" and did not rise up as a mighty green army because they revered their "24 elders" more than they did God Himself. This led to the spirit of divided compromise and to the spiritual civil war that God has decreed over the American spirit realm.

 

Belgium's two major languages are Dutch (also known as Flemish) and French. As we have shared before, France and Holland were the countries used by God to vote down the artificial unity fostered by the 2005 version of the EU Constitution. Therefore, it is ironic that the 2 nations which voted down a compromised European union are artificially coexisting in Belgium.

In the dream, the "red-bearded fellow" was wearing an odd "red crossed outfit", with the "crossing of the red" looking "like thick flannel". This immediately made me think of "Scottish tartans and kilts". As we have shared before, Scotland is endowed with the black-horse anointing. Therefore, the "red crossed outfit" points once again to believers with both the red- and the black-horse anointings, who are on the edge of entering the next stage: the green-horse stage. As we said above, God's green-horse riders are an army of spiritual buccaneers. Therefore, God's spiritual reference to "Scots" in the dream is not surprising considering that, according to cindyvallar.com, there are many Scots who are prominent in the history of sea piracy, Scots such as William Kidd, who even in his hanging and death seemed impossible to "get rid of". This is spiritually related to the fact that green-horse riders have an "indestructible" nature about them. Even if you kill their "bodies", they end up resurfacing as resurrected spirits. (A brief biography of Kidd is available on cindyvallar.com)

 

Another famous Scottish pirate was Peter Lisle, a 19th century Barbary corsair who, interestingly enough, ended up converting to Islam and became the Grand Admiral of Tripoli's navy (in Libya). Peter Lisle held America in very low esteem, and headed the party that captured the USS Philadelphia in 1803. All of this points to the "turban threat" looming in the air over America. America was called to allow the manifestation of God's green-horse remnant, but she refused. Therefore, God will allow the manifestation of twisted green-horse riders instead. Why? Because America is in her "green day", and green-horse actions must be manifested. If you repress God's righteous green-horse buccaneers, you open the door for unrighteous green-horse corsairs to fill the void and wreak terrible havoc against you. "Green day" is unavoidable. Once it is here, there is no turning back. Hittite terrorists are bound to surface wherever God's green-horse riders are repressed. The unnecessary torment of these Hittites would have been avoided had America humbly surrendered to God's "green" calling.

 

In the days of Peter Lisle, Libya was ruled by the Ottoman Turks, and the literal Hittite empire had its seat of power in Turkey. According to wikipedia.org, turbans were not common among regular Turks, but they were common among (Islamic) Ottoman "sultans". All of this once again points to the "turban threat" looming over America.

 

Peter Lisle was the son-in-law of the Bashaw of Tripoli, Yusuf Karamanli. According to wikipedia.org, "Yusuf" is the Islamic form of the name Joseph, and is used in Islam to refer to Joseph, the son of Jacob, who is considered in the Islamic religion as a prophet. As we have said many times before, Joseph was a green-horse rider who was vindicated by God before those who fought against him (his own brothers). When you reject the "Josephs", you get the "Yusufs". Let him who has ears hear what the Lord is saying in the Spirit.

 

As we have studied before, Joseph of Arimathaea was the person who wrapped Jesus' body after He surrendered His life in green-horse sacrifice. Joseph of Arimathaea had been "secretive" about His faith in Christ, and it took Jesus' death for him to gather the courage to come forward (John 19:38-42). Therefore, as green-horse believers surrender their "bodies" to be killed, wrapped in "blue", and buried, the spirit of Joseph is manifested, even among some who have been reluctant to manifest it. And, as Joseph is manifested on behalf of the righteous, Hittite "Yusuf" is manifested against the unrighteous who rejected God's green-horse riders.

 

{You can read more about Yusuf, Barbary corsairs, and the 19th century wars between America and Tripoli in articles posted on wikipedia.org and crystaloak.com}

 

The fact that the "red crossed outfit" subliminally points to Scotland, and, thus, to the UK, reveals once again that there is an undeniable spiritual connection between America's spiritual restoration and the surfacing of the UK as an imparter of God's Glory on a global scale.

In the dream, the red-bearded fellow was glad to see sister Paula, recognizing her immediately. This is because he was the same man as the shy guy with the splendid-looking armour that she had seen earlier in the dream. Sister Paula's warmness towards the shy man earlier prompted him to open up in warmness the next time he saw her. Even so, sister Paula was unable to recognize him, which reveals a spiritual principle: As a believer moves from the black-horse anointing to the green-horse anointing, his nature, his behavior, and his demeanor become unrecognizable to the human understanding, even when that understanding is laden with much spiritual awareness. Sister Paula had met the shy "guy" in the context of the 3 houses, meaning that she had met him in the light of the white, red, and black horses. By contrast, she was meeting the red-bearded man in the context of the "buccaneer" green horse, which is an "odd" horse, a horse you can only discern as you peer across the light barrier. This is the reason why Mary Magdalene had a hard time recognizing Jesus after resurrection, even after she had ministered to Him during His earthly ministry and had seen Him from afar during His physical death.

 

"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. 55And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him: 56Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s children." (Matthew 27:54-56)

[As we have seen before, the earthquake (v54) speaks of Yeshua as a green-horse rider]

 

"15Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. 17Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. 18Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her." (John 20:15-18)

[The word "seen" in verse 18 was translated from the Greek word horao, which, as we have seen before, speaks of prophetic vision. Mary was unable to recognize the resurrected green-horse Jesus when she beheld Him with her natural eyes, but she was finally able to recognize Him when she beheld Him with her spiritual eyes. Even as she had beheld Jesus from afar as He was dying at the cross, she was unable to peer past the death of the cross and into the resurrection realm. To all, even to His disciples, Yeshua's decision to die seemed like utter madness, as shown by Simon Peter's reaction when He told them of it (Matthew 16:21-28).]

 

There is also another (spiritually interrelated) reason why sister Paula did not recognize the red-bearded man at first. Many, many decades ago, the land of Britannia found grace in the eyes of the Lord. He began a mighty work in that region of the Earth. But, as some final roadblocks began to emerge, He took a remnant from Britannia and shipped them over to America. There, that remnant from Britannia flourished. Without the roadblocks they had left behind, God's work through the remnant moved forward, to the point that America became "unrecognizable" and "distant" to Britannia. Britannia identified more with her (spiritually distant) European neighbors across the narrow Channel than with her (spiritually close) relatives across the wide Sea. However, when God "stows" a remnant away from a group of people He loves, it is to safeguard that remnant and to mold it in His image so that that remnant may one day return and restore the rest of the group. This is what God did with Moses and Israel, for example. God "stowed" Moses in the desert, away from the rest of the Israelites in Egypt so that Moses would some day return to restore the rest of Israel. As we have studied before, this is also what God wanted to do with America and Britannia. America was the "stowed Britannia" that would some day return to restore Britannia. America, however, botched up its "call to return", and the Lord was forced to resort to "Plan B".

[It must be noted that God has "Plan A"s and "Plan B"s, not because He does not know what will happen, but because He always follows a "legal spiritual order". Boaz could not take Ruth as his wife until the closest relative passed up on his right to marry her (Ruth 4:1-12). Paul could not preach to the Gentiles until the Jews had been offered the plan first (Acts 28:23-29). In "legal" spiritual terms, Plan B must be implemented only until Plan A has been given an opportunity to work. That way, a testimony can be written in the spiritual "legal records" certifying that Plan A was indeed rejected by man, which then certifies the spiritual legality of Plan B.]

 

Under "Plan B", God stowed Britannia's and America's calling in believers who are spiritual relatives of Britannia and America. These kinsmen and kinswomen are an "Alistair-Cooke combination" of Britannia and America. In them, they have the Godly core of Britannia, and they also have the development that God fostered on that "core" while it was stowed in America. These "stowed" believers are not as easily discernable as you might think. When you really want to safeguard something, you hide it from the intrusion of the natural. The believers "stowed away" under "Plan B" are more difficult to identify than those under "Plan A", which has protected them from the attack of the enemy. These "stowaway" believers have been hidden from paying the "fare" demanded by the traditions of men, which work hard to erode God's purposes in His people.

 

God also applied the "stowaway" principle with the people of Israel. God separated Israel from the rest of the human race, molding them to His likeness so that they would go out into the world and regenerate the human race unto God. However, just like America, the Jewish people "forgot to return" to those from which they had been taken (the Gentiles). God then resorted to a "Plan B" with them as well, a "Plan B" that continues to unfold before our eyes.

The "do-over" in the dream speaks of travel across time. As we have shared before, physical chronos time runs more slowly as you travel faster, to the point that physical time stops once you reach the speed of light. Therefore, the speed of light represents the barrier across which you become free from all chronos-time limitations. This means that the only way to "travel across time" is by going beyond the light barrier. Fellow believer, when you operate as a spirit being, you break the limitations of time and space, and you can travel forwards and backwards through time to exert spiritual influence over invisible events in the past and the future. The fullness of this comes as you operate in the fullness of the green-horse anointing.

 

The do-over also speaks of how God's green-horse riders can bear the iniquity of others in order to enable their restoration. By cutting his hair, the red-bearded man had committed a "spiritual stupidity". He had given up a prize of eternal value for the sake of some temporal satisfaction, a satisfaction derived from conforming to man's traditions. But, by doing so, he was prophetically acting out the spiritual stupidity that others were committing, and he thus became deserving of God's judgment against him. As that judgment befell him, he could only clamor for mercy, not for a change in the verdict, for, at that moment, he was as guilty as the people he was prophetically representing. As God heard his desperate clamor, He bestowed His mercy upon him, and He reverted the eternal consequences of his "stupid" action. When this happened, a path of mercy was prepared for those represented by the green-horse rider. Just as he was bestowed mercy, those he represented were bestowed mercy as well, and just as he had a chance for a "do-over", those who were committing "spiritual suicide" like him also got a chance for a "do-over". This "do-over" was enabled by the green-horse rider's willingness to break across the light barrier, which involves a voluntary descent to Sheol. This is the reason why the judgment that Jonah announced against Nineveh was reversed. When Jonah finally accepted a voluntary descent into the fish's belly, he enabled a do-over for Nineveh. In the same way, there have been green-horse riders who have borne the iniquity of America's idiocy, and, by doing so, they have enabled a do-over for America. This is the reason why the latter-rain revival in America has been delayed, not canceled. All of this has happened outside the natural view of man, just as Jesus' descent to Sheol (and Jonah's descent into the fish's belly) happened outside the view of man.

The woman and the 2 children represent believers in the anointing of the white, red, and black horses of the Apocalypse who are trying, with much difficulty, to complete the transition into the green-horse anointing. In the dream, the woman acts as a covering for her 2 children, which means that she represents the white horse, since, as we have said before, the white horse acts as an umbrella for the other 3 horses. The 2 children represent the red and the black horses of the Apocalypse, and the red-bearded man who reappears in their home later on in the dream represents the green horse. In a sense, the red-bearded man is like the "3rd child", but he is different from the other 2 children in the sense that his "belonging" to that family is not based on natural parameters.

 

bullet

The nasty-looking man in the living room represents the "unmasked" Korah leadership that remains over the Church. As we have said before, the black horse comes to reveal Korah's "baldness", exposing him for what he is: a hoodlum, a scoundrel who uses Hivite scheming to con people out of their God-given potential. Even so, there are souls, such as the "attentive" woman in the dream, who share in Korah's self-deceit and who continue listening to him, even after he has been so evidently exposed. These are the souls who do not want to see the end of the soul matriarchy on Earth and who cling to it for dear life, even if that means remaining faithful to hoodlums.

 

bullet

Sister Paula described the nasty-looking man as a "biker", for lack of a better description. Motorcycles are flashy vehicles used by people as a sign of power and freedom. However, because of their "2-wheel foundation", they are unstable vehicles when compared to "4-wheel" cars. Two is the half of four. Therefore, motorcycles are a figure of the Church leadership that does not want to forsake "flashiness" for the sake of a righteous foundation. They are willing to give half of themselves to God, enough to shine and stand out above their brethren, but not enough to truly enable them and propel them into the fullness of their calling. Those who do not have the spirit of Elisha and who remain enthralled by these "minister's" flashy "bikes" will not separate themselves from them and are therefore exposed to the green-horse judgment that shall come upon them.

 

bullet

The hoodlum and the woman were in the living room, while the woman and the 2 children were in the kitchen. This points to the following:

 
bullet

The living room is a place where people entertain themselves, while the kitchen is a place where people work to "process" food in order to eat it, and, the eating of food leads to growth (sometimes horizontal growth, but growth nonetheless!). Therefore, the two rooms are a contrast of "entertainment" versus "growth". Those who want to be entertained by Christianity will listen to Korah. Those who truly want to grow will be eating food that involves process (i.e.- mishpat judgment) in order to grow.

 

bullet

The dream gives the impression that the odd house belonged to the woman and the 2 children, which means that the hoodlum and the woman were in the living room with their consent. This reveals that, even in their willingness to enter into the green-horse stage and complete their spiritual race, there were some "issues" they were unwilling to let go of. The number that comes to my mind and heart as I think about them is "75%". Unlike most of the American Church, which was comfortable going 50% of the way, these believers are willing to go 3/4 of the way, but are struggling to surrender the final quarter. Like Lot, they abhor the many unrighteous acts of Sodom, but they are not yet fully willing to let go of Sodom altogether.

 

"7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished" (2 Peter 2:7-9)

 

"15And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. 16And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city." (Genesis 19:15-16)

 

The word "lingered" in verse 16 was translated from the Hebrew word mahahh meaning "to linger, tarry, delay". In other words, even after the people of Sodom had tried to rape the angels and had even threatened to rape him for not handing the angels over (Genesis 19:4-11), he still had "feelings" for Sodom, delaying his own escape from Sodom. Lot wanted to do what was right. He was trying to "eat" the righteous judgments of God in the "kitchen" of his mind, but he was still harboring hoodlums in the "living room" of his heart.

 

Just like the 2 angels that visited Sodom, God's green-horse riders are taking refuge in "Lot houses", which have served as "green bays of refuge" for them. Just like the 2 angels, they are being treated "greenly well" in these "Lot houses", but they are still being exposed to a certain level of attacks due to the 25% that these Lots have yet to surrender. These well-meaning Lots do not realize how their non-relinquished 25% is causing unnecessary heartache to the green-horse riders that they are "hosting"; in their "homes", these Lots are constantly forcing their "green guests" to compromise on their 100% commitment to God, subliminally coaxing their guests in ways that they themselves don't comprehend. Yet, God has placed these green guests in this uncomfortable position for the sake of these Lots. Were it not for these "green angels", the Lots would irremediably perish in Sodom. How merciful and compassionate the Lord is! How patient He is, even with those who are having a hard time surrendering the last bit of themselves to Him!

Through the blinds, where they sagged, sister Paula noticed a "great big green machine". The phrase "blinds, where they sagged" is deeply prophetic in nature. As we shared 455 (=35*13) days ago, the remnant were lying like the 2 blind men by the wayside, asking the American Church to enable them. The American Church, however, chose to enable the unrighteous instead of the righteous, as was so clearly illustrated by the Church's unconditional help of unrighteous New Orleans. By contrast, when it came to enabling the remnant spirit, the American Church entered into "delay mode", dragging her feet in turtle-like slowness. When it came to God's "remnant requests", the American Church began to "sag" in spiritual negligence because it was more interested in their earthly, visible kingdoms than in God's invisible kingship. They saw Katrina as an "opportunity" to "look good before the public" and enlarge their kingdoms, but helping "a couple of unknown blind men by the wayside", so to speak, was too "insignificant" for her. Therefore, the word "blinds" refer to the "2 blind men", and the phrase "where they sagged" refers to the moment in time when America "sagged" with negligence upon the cry of the remnant blind men. Because of this sagging, the "great big green machine" is on its way, which speaks of the green-horse judgments that shall be pounding America until May 2009.

 

bullet

The "great big green machine" reminded sister Paula of a "tank", which speaks of war. It therefore points to God as "Jehovah Sabbaoth", the Lord of Hosts who comes to wage war of annihilation against the Korahs who remain dead set against Him.

 

"21How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. 22Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: 23Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. 24Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies: 25And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: 26And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. 27Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. 28And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 29For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. 30For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. 31And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them." (Isaiah 1:21-31)

 

"24Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. 25Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 26And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly" (Isaiah 5:24-26)

 

"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. 3And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts." (Malachi 4:1-3)

 

The Lord of Hosts is a refuge to the green-horse righteous, and a cloud of desolation to the Korah unrighteous.

 

"6The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. 7The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. 8Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. 9He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. 10Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah." (Psalm 46:6-11)

[Notice how verse 8 speaks of God desolating the Earth, while verse 9 speaks of ending "wars". In other words, the Lord is coming to end man's war against Him by bringing desolation against those who stubbornly war against Him. War between two parties is sure to end when one of the two parties ends the existence of the other. This "end of existence" can come through either willful surrender or outright obliteration. Willful surrender leads to the blending of one party into the other (which occurs through transformation judgments) and results in the surrendering party peacefully "disappearing" as a separate and opposing entity. Outright obliteration happens when the non-surrendering party is forcibly removed from "existence"; there is no longer any "blending", only "slashing" and "burning".

 

We strongly recommend that you read about the agricultural practice of "Slash and burn" (on wikipedia.org, for example) in the context of Zechariah 11.]

 

The fact that sister Paula used the word "machine" speaks of "cold ruthlessness". Like a pre-programmed machine, God's green-horse spirits are coming to release merciless judgments upon those who harbor Korah.

The pillowcases that were used as "packing bags" point to the following:

 
bullet

Pillowcases are related to the act of sleeping. Therefore, the food packed in those pillowcases refers to the revelation received from God as we learn to "sleep" to the natural frequencies in order to "awaken" to the spiritual frequencies of God.

 

"14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. 15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; 16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, 17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. 18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword." (Job 33:14-18)

 

bullet

Pillows are for resting your head while sleeping, which points to the stones that Jacob used for a pillow in Bethel, which, in turn, points to the latter-day Jacob's ladder of angelic visitation (Genesis 28:10-15). Wherever stones (i.e.- believers) are willing to act as resting pillows for God's remnant (i.e.- Jacob), a porthole of angelic visitation shall be opened in the heavenlies. This angelic visitation (of judgment and of life) is related to the gallop of the green horse.

 

bullet

The pillowcases were being used to store food for the future rather than for pillows to rest in the natural. In other words, the woman and the 2 children showed a willingness to invest in their spiritual future rather than rest in their natural present. While the hoodlum and the "attentive" woman rested (i.e.- slept) in the living room, the woman and the 2 children were fully awake, hurriedly preparing their exit, for they became deeply aware of the green-horse judgment that was approaching.

 

bullet

The food that was silently stored in the pillowcases points to the Britannia remnant (mentioned above) that God has "stowed away" in places that fall safely outside the intrusion of the natural radar.

 

bullet

In the dream, pillowcases were used to avoid making noise. This reveals a powerful truth: As God's green judgment approaches, He stops all word of warning to the unwary. No more sirens are sounded. Instead, a lullaby is played over the speaker system, a lullaby that ensures that all the unrighteous will be in restful slumber when disaster strikes. Those who callously disregarded God's sirens shall be ensnared by God's "lullabies", for God shall not be mocked. Those who mocked God's warning shall die in mourning, for God shall ultimately have the last laugh.

 

bullet

The pillowcases also point to the "sleeper" cells through which "stowaway turbans" shall have gained entrance.

 

bullet

It is interesting to consider that the hoodlum and the "attentive" woman remained in the living room until the last minute of the dream. At no point did the woman kick them out of her house and onto the street. At the end, however, she was able to "stumble with understanding" as the green machine approached. This means that the "reluctant Lots" will hold hope for Sodom's restoration, even until the end. Despite this, they will finally "get it" and act in the Spirit on God's call.

 

bullet

Interestingly enough, sister Paula did a "do-over" when she sent the dream to us. As we mention above, she sent us a follow-up email that same day (some 9 minutes later) in which she repeated the dream's description but rewrote the end. Instead of the original last sentence, she added a few sentences which describe the red-bearded man reappearing in the dream, with his hair uncut, hurrying the woman and the 2 children out of the house. This means that the red-bearded man did not lose his calling, and, in his green-horse obedience, he became an instrument of salvation for the "reluctant Lots" (i.e.- the woman and the 2 children) and an instrument of judgment against the unrepentant. For this reason, he appears with his sword raised, for the Lord of Hosts is a refuge to the righteous and a cloud of desolation to the unrighteous.
