Word received by: Erin McElroy
In my dream, I was standing in a large body of water. It wasn't an ocean, but rather a large stream. In this stream were hundreds or thousands of one-man kayak-looking boats. All of these boats were jammed together and not moving. Even though in my dream I knew this water in which I was standing was deep, it only reached a little below my breasts.
I noticed three men standing next to me in white shirts and ties. They were Caucasian. As I surveyed the scene, another man in a business suit walked next to me. We were about the same height level in the water. He asked me to help him put his boat together. He had a kayak in two parts, left and right. I replied that I would help him, but only if he agreed to follow me further upstream, away from the crowd of people. I said to him that, if I helped him put his boat together in the present location, it would serve him no purpose. He agreed. I looked over at the three men beside me, and almost through telepathy, without me having to speak, they helped me move the boat upstream.
Once we arrived upstream, there were other boats there, but they were very few, and they weren't close to each other; they were very spread apart. The three men put the boat together, and then got in. Once he got in, he was the size of a regular man. He opened his mouth to tell me something, but as soon as he did, my telephone rang, and I woke up.
This dream must be understood in terms of the "4 faces" of the living beings described in Ezekiel 1:10. As we have shared before, the lion, eagle, and ox faces correspond to the 3 "male" ministries (apostle, prophet, and evangelist), while the man face corresponds to the 2 "female" ministries (pastor and teacher). Therefore, the 3 men that appeared in the water next to sister Erin correspond to the 3 "male" ministries, while the individual men in the one-man kayaks refer to the domination of the "female" ministries (i.e.- the pastoral matriarchy) in congregations around the world.
As we have shared before, the pastoral matriarchy leads to a strong presence of the Canaanite spirit inside the Church, which in turn leads to the promotion of a Canaanite unity that is based on emotional soul pressure rather than oneness of Spirit. By their nature, Canaanite pastors hate judgments because judgments cause separation between the "good" and the "bad", which destroys their artificial soul unity. However, when they ban judgments, they also ban spiritual growth, because, as we have said before, growth can only come through judgments (Hebrews 5:10-14, Genesis 3:24). Where there is no growth, stagnation sets in. This is the reason why all the one-man boats were jammed together and not moving.
In order to grow, you must be willing to "separate yourself" from the crowd. If you are too concerned about losing the pleasantness of soul communion with the "brethren" and others, you will not follow after the Lord, and you will lose out on God's purposes for your life. You will become "comfortably stagnated", trapped in the snug unity of the spiritually idle crowd.
"26If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish." (Luke 14:26-30)
[Notice how the Lord associates "soul communion" (v26) with "unfinished business" (v30). When you are not willing to "separate yourself" from the crowd, God's spiritual work in you is left stagnant and incomplete, like a tower that is begun but is never finished.]
The fact that there were "hundreds or thousands" of one-man boats emphasizes the fact that Canaanite soul unity can do little more than produce an ugly "patchwork quilt". It is impossible to produce a "seamless-cloth" unity (John 19:23) unless that unity is forged in the Spirit. When we are united to God, we become One Spirit with Him (1 Corinthians 6:17), which leads to a unity that surpasses all circumstantial distinctions derived from culture or race. Because God is righteous in His nature, it is impossible to be One with Him unless we abide in His righteousness, which implies abiding under His judgments. When we allow ourselves to be molded into the likeness of His nature by His judgment sword (Hebrews 4:12), we can enter into a level of spiritual unity where we become seamlessly integrated. This seamless integration is impossible at the soul level.
Man tried to be "one" at the soul level in the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9), but God came to bring division. God's judgments always expose the things that are hidden. Therefore, the language differences that emerged when God judged Babel were external manifestations of the differences that were already inside their hearts, because, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45). Soul unity is vulnerable to "disintegration" when God's judgments come because such unity is not built on a foundation of righteousness and judgments. Spirit unity in God is not vulnerable to "disintegration" when God's judgments come because spirit unity is founded on those very judgments.
"23Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. 24They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did." (John 19:23-24)
[The word "garments" was translated from the Greek word himation, which speaks of an outer cloak or mantle. The word "coat" was translated from the Greek word chiton, which speaks of a tunic or undergarment worn next to the skin.
The 4 soldiers were able to split the outer garment in 4 different parts, but they were unable to split the inner garment. The outer cloak can be taken to represent the soul while the inner tunic can be taken to represent the Spirit. Therefore, this passage shows that divisions are not impossible at the more external soul level, but they are impossible at the deeper Spirit level.
Notice that there were 4 soldiers, which correlates with the 4 faces of Ezekiel 1:10 and to the 5 ministries of Ephesians 4:11. Therefore, at a deeper level, the outer mantle can be taken to represent the different roles of each of the 4 faces (or 5 ministries). The apostolic role is different from the prophetic role, the prophetic role is different from the evangelistic role, and the evangelistic role is different from the role of pastors and teachers. Whenever you, fellow believer, are called to move in each of the 4 different faces, your spiritual functionality is externally different, which is represented by the fact that the outer mantle could be split into 4 parts. However, no matter what face you operate in at any given time, you are called to operate in the Indivisible Oneness of the Spirit, which is represented by the fact that the inner tunic could not be divided. If you operate merely at the (more external) soul level and not at the (internal) spirit level, you will not be able to operate in the Indivisible Unity of the Spirit.]
The three men
In the dream, 3 men appeared next to sister Erin, dressed in white shirts and ties. As we have shared before, the color white is obtained on computer screens by combining the colors red, green, and blue at 100% intensity. As we have also said before, these 3 colors can correspond to the apostolic, prophetic, and evangelistic ministries respectively. Therefore, the color white speaks of a soul that has been covered under the full impartation of the 3 "male" ministries.
As we have said before, the Lord is manifesting Himself through white-horse riders (Revelation 6:1-2) who come with an impartation of the 3 "male" ministries (apostle, prophet, and evangelist). The white-horse riders come to begin the end of the pastoral matriarchy and to restore the Church into the fullness of its Spirit calling by ending the soul's domination over the spirit nature in believers. Therefore, the 3 men in the dream represent the manifestation of the white horse of the Apocalypse.
The fact that the 3 men in white shirts and ties were Caucasian also has spiritual significance. First, it reinforces their spiritual connection to the white horse of the Apocalypse. Second, it emphasizes the fact that the latter-rain revival will come through "Japhethites" who recognize the God of Shem. As we have shared before, a close study of Genesis chapter 10 reveals that the prophetic remnant is hidden inside Japheth. In the physical realm, the Europeans (i.e.- the "Caucasians") are the descendants of Japheth. However, being a "spiritual Japhethite" does not require that you be a literal European. Instead, it means accepting the spiritual covering of "European" values such as "rule of law", "human decency", and "respect for your fellow man". It also means not being envious of America's and Europe's influence on the world. The latter-rain revival will flow from the United States --- a spiritual extension of Europe --- and Europe proper, out into all the world.
After the 3 men in white shirts and ties, another man in a business suit walks next to sister Erin. This means that there were now 4 men in the water. As we said above, the first 3 men represent the 3 "male" ministries and 3 of the 4 faces of the living beings in Ezekiel 1:10 (the lion, eagle, and ox faces). Therefore, this 4th man represents the other face, the man face, which means that he represents the 2 "female" ministries (pastor and teacher). However, this man represents the pastors and teachers who want to do things God's way. They perceive that the current state of things is wrong, and they want to change it. They are not interested in preserving the domination of the "female" ministries over the Church; they are just interested in doing God's will.
These men and women realize that the Church is incomplete, and that there is unfinished business to take care of (this is why the man in the dream was wearing a business suit). They are not part of the crowd that believes that the Church is ready to take off in some literal "rapture" out of this Earth. They are not part of the crowd that believes that the Church only needs more members before it can be "raptured away". They understand that the Church's incompleteness is not quantitative; it is qualitative. They understand that the Church has not taken the "quantum leap of light" into the true dimension God has called her to be in. They have stopped relying on man's doctrines and are asking the Holy Spirit for guidance. In the dream, sister Erin represents the Holy Spirit. This is why the man in the business suit approaches her, asking for help.
As we have said before, Scripture very clearly declares that all believers are priests of the Lord and ministers of God (Isaiah 61:6, 1 Peter 2:9). Therefore, the 5 ministries mentioned in Ephesians 4:11 (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor & teacher) apply to all of us. Every single human being on Earth (including non-believers) is born with at least one of these 5 ministry callings, and we are called to develop all 5 ministries in our lives as we grow in the Lord. We are called to reach "the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13), and this is impossible if we do not manifest all 5 ministries in our lives.
The 5 ministries of Ephesians 4:11 are spiritual roles. However, the Church has turned them into religious titles. Therefore, they understand that someone is a "pastor", for example, only if the word "Pastor" is painted on his or her office door. However, I have known many believers who manifest a strong Spirit of Service, which means that they are pastors in the spirit realm, even if no one calls them "pastor". I have also known many believers who manifest the Spirit of Justice and Judgments, which means that they are apostles in the spirit realm, even when no one addresses them as "apostle".
Those who are born apostles are placed in the Church in order to impart their apostolic anointing on the people around them. Those who are born prophets are placed in the Church in order to impart their prophetic anointing on the people around them. When someone is truly carrying out his or her ministry calling in the spirit realm, he or she will inevitably enable others to walk in that same calling (if those others have a "receptive womb").
The 5 ministry callings of Ephesians 4:11 are not religious titles reserved for a "privileged few". When the "precious ointment" was poured on the Head (i.e.- Christ), it ran down the entire Body, all the way down to the "skirts of the garments" (Psalm 133:1-3). Just like Aaron was a priest in the Old Covenant, we are all priests in the New Covenant. The Anointing is not reserved for a privileged few. Cursed be those who dare to hoard God's Anointing!!! Cursed be the spirit of anti-Christ in the Church!!!
Therefore, when we say that the 4th man in the dream represents "pastors and teachers" who are dissatisfied with the status quo, we are not referring only to people who are recognized as "pastors" or "disciplers" at a given congregation. We are referring to spiritual roles, not religious titles.
The 4th man had a kayak in two parts, "left and right". As we have said before, the left side is associated in Scripture with concepts such as grace and freedom, while the right side is associated with concepts such as judgments and limitation. Therefore, the split kayak speaks of how the Church has tried to keep grace and judgments apart. The matriarchal pastors have fostered a Church that goes after "grace" and "blessings" but wants nothing to do with things such as "judgments" and "death". The matriarchal pastors have created an illusory separation between the "God of the Old Testament" and the "God of the New Testament". They portray the "mean" God of Judgments and Consuming Fire as a "thing of the past". The God who slaughtered 70,000 people in one fell swoop "simply because" David decided to have a census (2 Samuel 24:15) is relegated to a "distant and barbaric" past. To the matriarchal pastors, the God of Judgments died at the cross with Jesus. According to them, we are now under the God of "love". What these ignorant (idiotes in Greek) men and women forget is that God did not "become" Love; He is Love, and His nature has never changed (Malachi 3:6, James 1:17, Hebrews 13:8). This means that everything that God does is an act of Love, including the act where He killed 70,000 people at once. God's judgments are not incompatible with His Love nature. On the contrary, they are manifestations of His Love. The problem is that matriarchal pastors understand "love" in terms of soap opera sentimentalism.
Everything the matriarchal pastors dislike about God is bundled up under the label "Old Testament" and thrown into the sea. They have turned God into a schizophrenic being who acted like a monstrous Mr. Hyde in the "Old Testament" but who is now behaving like the more "normal" Dr. Jekyll in the "New Testament". As we have said before, Scripture clearly shows that the difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant has nothing to do with God being "mean" or "nice". Instead, it has to do with the presence or absence of intermediaries (Jeremiah 31:31-34). God has always been and will always be the God of Consuming Fire. Under the Old Covenant, it was impossible to approach this God directly. Now, we have direct access to Him, not because He stopped being Consuming Fire but because the intermediaries have been removed. Now we can approach Him to be baptized in His Fire and be transformed into His likeness. God has never stopped making judgments. The difference under the New Covenant is that now we, as a people, can expose ourselves to His death-causing judgments in order to resurrect into an ever-growing Glory in Him (2 Corinthians 3:18). Fellow believer, men like David, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and other "Old Testament" writers lived under the "New Testament" or "New Covenant". They had direct access and intimacy with God. The difference in those days was that the Israelite people, as a whole, did not have this direct access because they chose not to (Deuteronomy 5:24-27, Isaiah 65:2, Romans 10:20-21). Unfortunately, many in the Church have also made the same choice. They are not interested in approaching a God of Judgments who is unpleasant to their souls' liking, so they have fashioned a false god, a "golden calf" where God is more to their natural liking. The "Mr. Hyde" of the "Old Testament" is buried in the monstrous past as if He had never existed. To them, the "monstrous" God of Israel who ordered the Israelites to wipe the Amalekite people off the face of the Earth (1 Samuel 15:1-3) and who ordered the massacre of every man, woman, and child in Jericho is "no more". Obviously, these massacres are shadows of things we are now to do in the spirit realm (Hebrews 8:5, Hebrews 10:1) but they were real, nonetheless. To this day, God is still carrying out these massacres, even in the natural realm. Consider the South Asia tsunami of December 26, 2004 where He unleashed the green horse upon them and killed 1/4 million people in a few hours; consider the judgment He rained upon Girgashite France in the heat wave of 2003, when He killed some 10,000 people. Consider the recent monsoons in Mumbai, India, that have devastated India's main financial center and its most modern and proud city, causing the deaths of hundreds and devastating damages in the hundreds of millions of dollars. All of these massacres and disasters in the natural realm are direct manifestations of judgments that God's faithful remnant is unleashing in the spirit realm. God's judgments are real and have tangible consequences, even in these "New Testament" days.
Since the matriarchal Church has fashioned a "god" with a divided personality, God is sending His red horse to divide the Church in order to separate the willing from the hardened of heart. As we have said before, God's red-horse riders come with the sword of pestilence to bring internal conflict into the Church and to create doubt in believers' hearts regarding the old, Cain-style structures of the Church. This is why sister Erin (i.e.- the Holy Spirit) told the 4th man that she would help him fix the boat only if he was willing to fully separate himself from the crowd of people there. To repair the boat there would "serve him no purpose", because it would mean working within spiritual structures that are rotten at the core. These structures must be destroyed (not repaired) before a new and righteous Church can be manifested.
In order to separate himself from the crowd, the man had to follow sister Erin (i.e.- the Holy Spirit) upstream. As we have said before, red-horse riders come to stir people to "buck the trend", to become like salmon that swim against the Canaanite trends of soul communion and the Hivite trends of effeminate delight. The red-horse anointing begets spiritual salmon that become defiant of long-held Girgashite traditions of men. It is not coincidental, therefore, that salmon turn redder and redder as they swim upstream towards their destination.
As we have said before, only those who heed God's red shout of wrath against the Church's structures will separate themselves from the crowd and swim upstream. Those who believe that everything is "hunky dory" will ignore the red horse and stay put under the comfortable covering of man.
In 2003, a British group called "Coldplay" had a hit song called "Clocks". In it, the singer asks, "Am I part of the cure, or am I part of the disease?" The Church sincerely thinks that she is part of the cure, but she does not realize that she is infested with the same spirits that are out in the world. Instead of bringing true transformation to the world, she is only adding to the problem. This is why the Lord said the following:
"22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!" (Matthew 6:22-23)
As we have said before, the "eye" is associated in Scripture with the making of judgments. Therefore, the Lord is saying in verse 22 that the Church is the light of the world because of its Spirit-enabled ability to make righteous judgments. When the Church stops making judgments, the eye goes "dim" and the Church becomes darkness. If the Church, which is the light of the world, becomes darkness, how much greater won't the darkness be in the unbelieving world (v23)?
The song's question (quoted above) is a question of self-examination that demands definition. Will the Church be willing to admit that she is part of the disease rather than the cure? Those who admit this will come out from the Church's structures and define themselves for the Lord. Those who refuse to accept the truth will define themselves against the Lord, even when they don't mean to do so. Why? Because no man can serve two masters. He will eventually pick one of the two (Matthew 6:24). Since God will never accept unrighteousness and iniquity, those who adhere to the old structures of unrighteousness and human tradition will inevitably become God's enemies and fight against Him (James 4:4).
We are in the valley of decision (Joel 3:14). Those who decide for God will separate themselves and go out into the wilderness. Those who decide for "Churchianity" will stay under the coverings of man and find themselves inevitably enveloped by God's eternal judgment of reproach against them (Jeremiah 23:36-40), and they will not participate of eternal "resurrection", at least not in the way that Scripture uses the word "resurrection" (Philippians 3:8-14, Matthew 27:50-53).
"30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit." (Matthew 12:30-33)
[Notice how the Lord demands definition from the tree. Either make the tree "good" or "corrupt" (v33). You cannot have it both ways.]
Once you heed God's red-horse shout, you will go out into the lonely wilderness. There, you will encounter physical and emotional scarcity, but you will become spiritually productive as you become fruitful in the Lord. This is why the place upstream had so few boats ("physical" scarcity), and why those few boats were so spread apart ("emotional" scarcity). Here, we come under the black-horse anointing (Revelation 6:5-6).
As we have said before, the red horse comes with a "water baptism" that cleanses us from the external impurities of human doctrine and human intermediaries. In the black-horse wilderness, we undergo a "fire baptism" that processes us on the inside and molds us into the likeness of God.
In the sparsely populated waters upstream, the 3 men put the boat together and got in. The true restoration of the Church can only take place in the wilderness under no covering but God Himself. As sister Erin (i.e.- the Holy Spirit) said, the putting together of the boat downstream would have been pointless. Only the fire baptism in the wilderness can penetrate deep into our beings and transform us into His likeness. Unlike the downstream resting place, the upstream wilderness lacks the distractions of soul communion and tradition-driven church activities. As we have said before, congregations around the world use "brotherly interaction" and a schedule full of religious activities to fake out the absence of God's shekinah presence among them. It is easier to fake out the emptiness inside when one is involved in mind-consuming activities and emotion-consuming socializing.
Once the 4th man separated his boat from the crowd, the 3 men were able to put it back together, and they got in. As we said above, the 3 men represent the 3 "male" ministries (apostle, prophet, evangelist). Therefore, the 3 men getting in is a prophetic figure of a "male" impartation upon the "boat" (i.e.- the believers). The boats that stayed downstream stayed under the influence of Canaanite soul communion and Girgashite church activities, which means that they stayed under the influence of the distorted "female" ministries (when pastors stray from God's will, they turn into Canaanite promoters of soul communion; when teachers stray from God's purposes, they turn into Girgashites that promote external religious activities). This is why the boats downstream cannot receive a "male" impartation that will allow them to operate at the Spirit level. As long as they stay downstream, under "female" domination, they can operate at the soul level, at best.
After the 3 men got in, the 4th man got in as well. This means that the boat became a 4-man boat. The boats that sister Erin had seen at the beginning were one-man kayaks, which means that there was only room for the "man" face, but not enough room for the other 3 faces (the lion, eagle, and ox faces). However, notice how sister Erin (i.e.- the Holy Spirit) narrates the entry of the 4 men into the boat:
"The three men put the boat together, and then got in. Once he got in, he was the size of a regular man. He opened his mouth to tell me something, but as soon as he did, my telephone rang, and I woke up."
Notice that the Holy Spirit does not emphasize the 4 men that were in the boat. Once the 4 men were in, it is as if the 4 men became one, because the Holy Spirit never refers to them in the plural. This speaks of true unity and integration. Even though there were 4 men, it is as if they all became embodied in one person. This is the reason why Ezekiel 1:4-28 speaks of the living beings with the 4 faces as beings that worked in unison with the Spirit. We are to manifest all 4 faces in our inner being, and, even though each face's functionality is different, all 4 faces will operate in perfect unison under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
When the "male" ministry anointings are cast out of the Church, the Church becomes a hodgepodge of one-man kingdoms where each pastor is the king of "his" congregation, and where each of these kings is battling for "territory" and "prestige". This is portrayed by the one-man kayaks that were jammed together and not moving. They may try to "unite", but it will only be an artificial and short-lived unity, because the only true unity is achieved when all submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Soul unity is fragile and arbitrary. Spirit unity is strong and unbreakable. As we have said before, the "male" ministries feed the spirit, while the "female" ministries nurture the soul. Therefore, it is impossible to have Spirit-unity in a matriarchal atmosphere where the "male" ministry anointings have been kicked out or forced to submit under the "pastoral covering". Any "male" ministry anointing that submits to the "pastoral covering" automatically loses its "male" spirit nature and becomes "soulishly female".
In the dream, sister Erin did not need to speak in order to have the 3 men help in pushing the boat upstream. This telepathic communication is a figure of what happens when the Holy Spirit (instead of man) is allowed to guide events. Human structures require forcible and time-consuming control to simulate "unity". Spiritual structures do not require this type of oppressive and cajoling control because they can operate at a higher level. Notice how the Lord describes His latter-day army of believers:
"4The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. 5Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. 6Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. 7They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: 8Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. 9They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. 10The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: 11And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?" (Joel 2:4-11)
Notice that verse 11 does not say, "And the Lord's pastors shall utter their voices before their respective battalions". This latter-day army does not operate under the voice of man, but under the voice of an Invisible Lord. They will not step on each other; they will not "thrust one another" (v8) like the one-man kayaks downstream. Each soldier will walk his or her own path (v8). Each soldier will march on his own way (v7). Each one will have a specific task relayed by "Mission Control" (i.e.- the Holy Spirit), and God will coordinate each task so that they all fit together flawlessly like a perfect jigsaw puzzle, without the need for human coordination or control. This is what God intended from the very beginning, but man is too stubborn and proud to let go of the steering wheel. Instead of allowing each believer to grow in his or her direct internal relationship with the Invisible God, man establishes external, visible religious structures that create an artificial but divided "unity" that does nothing to further God's True Purposes on Earth.
Before proceeding with the dream, we must make a short explanation of the 4 "non-Jehovah" Names of God. We have previously listed the 7 "Jehovah" Names of God, which are Names that comply with the following characteristics established by God in Scripture:
On the other hand, the "non-Jehovah" Names of God comply with the following characteristics established by God in Scripture:
There are 4 "non-Jehovah" Names associated with God in the Old Testament: Adonai, El Shaddai, El Elyon, and Elohim. Each of these 4 names corresponds to each of the 4 faces of the living beings in Ezekiel 1:10:
In short, here is a summary of the 4 "non-Jehovah" names of God:
At the beginning of the dream, sister Erin perceived that the waters where she was standing were very deep, yet the water level only reached up below the breasts. This means that she was representing El Shaddai, which means that she was representing the Holy Spirit in the dream, as shown by the 4-Name table above.
The fact that she could stand in the middle of deep waters also speaks of "supernatural" height. At the beginning of the dream, sister Erin says that the 4th man (who represents the pastoral and teaching ministries) was about the same height level as her, which means that he also had "supernatural" height. However, when he got in the boat, he became a "regular-size" person. This points to what we shared in a previous word. The pastoral matriarchy and its congregational structures have presented themselves as the "vicars of Christ" on Earth. They have portrayed themselves as the "voice of God" left behind by Jesus when He physically left the Earth. However, Scripture clearly declares that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit in His place to guide us to all truth (John 16:7-15). He did not send a whole host of religious hierarchies and institutions in His place. He sent the Invisible Holy Spirit to abide inside believers so that we might abide in direct communion with the Most High God.
This means that the pastoral matriarchy has acted as an impostor for centuries. Pastors have taken the place that corresponds to the Holy Spirit only, and they have equated any criticism against them to "blasphemy against the Holy Spirit", as if to say, "We are the voice of God to you, plebeians; to question us is to question God". This is the reason why the 4th man (who represents the pastoral and teaching ministries) was at the same height level as sister Erin (who represents the Holy Spirit) at the beginning of the dream. When the 4th man embraced the 3 "male" ministry anointings, he was reduced to his correct size: to a weak man with the 3-fold "male" impartation of God over him. He became a "regular" man who was superior to no other man. Just like with any other son of Man, his faith allowed him to became imbued with the Judging Authority of the Lion, the Prophetic Power of the Eagle, and the Conquering Dominion of the Bull.
Towards the end of the dream, the man in the boat opened his mouth to tell sister Erin something, but, as soon as he did, the telephone rang, which woke sister Erin up. The "opening of the mouth" points to the following passage:
"32And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. 33They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation." (Numbers 16:32-33)
Notice how this passage relates the opening of the earth's mouth to the swallowing up of Korah, which, as we have seen before, points to the galloping of the green horse that comes against the spirit of Korah. As we have said above, the 4th man in the boat represents the Man Face, which is the only Face that points to earthly weakness. Therefore, the opening of his mouth is spiritually equivalent to the "earth opening her mouth".
"11And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brotherís blood from thy hand; 12When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth." (Genesis 4:11-12)
Notice how this verse once again is related to Sheol. In Numbers 16:32-33, the earth opened her mouth to swallow Korah and make him descend into the "pit". In Genesis 4:11-12, however, the earth opened her mouth to receive Abel's blood, which means that Abel also descended to Sheol, only that he went to a safe refuge in Sheol called "Paradise" or "Abraham's bosom" (Luke 16:22-26). Even though this refuge was safe, it was still a prison, and it was literally uncomfortable even though it was spiritually refreshing. This is why Ephesians 4:8-10 speaks of Jesus "leading the captivity captive" as He ascended to Heaven from Sheol. Even though Paradise is now up above (2 Corinthians 12:4), it is still a "spiritual cave", a temporary holding place of refuge for the true saints as the Church and the world are restored unto the Lord.
As we have studied before, when the green horse is released, a spiritual switch takes place. The prophetic remnant, which has been sent to Sheol by the pastoral matriarchy, will come out of Sheol, and the promoters of the pastoral matriarchy will be sent to Sheol to take their place. The prophetic remnant will then have a "preliminary" manifestation and will serve as "spiritual bait" that will lead to the Sin System's self-destruction. Therefore, when the 4th man "opened his mouth", it was a prophetic figure of the earth opening up to let the prophetic remnant out and to trap the "Korahs" in.
In the dream, just as the man was about to speak, the telephone rang in real life, and sister Erin woke up. The ringing of the phone once again speaks of the green horse. As some of you may remember, the old non-digital phones would literally vibrate as they rang, and even some of today's cell phones come with a feature that allows them to vibrate silently to alert the person of an incoming call. This connection to "vibration" points to "earthquakes", which, as we have said before, are spiritually related to the green horse.
The ringing sound of phones are designed to evoke a sudden urgency to "get up and answer". Therefore, the phone's ringing in real life is a prophetic figure of a "resurrection awakening". As we have said before, green-horse riders are "resurrected prophets" who have been to Sheol and back. Throughout the dream, sister Erin was a figure of the Holy Spirit, who, as we said above, is most directly connected to the prophetic ministry. Therefore, sister Erin's waking up in real life is a figure of prophet resurrection.
In conclusion, this dream is a prophetic figure of the manifestation of the 4 horses of the Apocalypse. The white horse appears with the 3 men in white shirts and ties; the red horse appears as the boat is moved upstream; the black horse appears as the boat remains in a place of "wilderness isolation" upstream; and the green horse appears as sister Erin is awakened by the phone's ring in real life. As the 4 horses are manifested, the Church will receive a strong impartation of the "male" ministries, and the "female" ministries will stop usurping the place of the Holy Spirit.
