A Titanic flop on the way to 20

In our previous word, we shared that May 19, 2006 at 6:00 pm (US CDT) was an important moment in the spirit realm. Interestingly enough, London time is 6 hours ahead of U.S. Central Time, meaning that, at that very moment, it was exactly May 20, 2006 12:00 am in the UK. Therefore, at that precise moment in time, it was May 19 in the USA and May 20 in the UK. This is a prophetic figure of how America stubbornly remained at "19", while the Lord found spiritual elements in the UK and Europe that will allow them to move into "20". As we have shared before, the transition from "19" to "20" represents the rising up of an army of "young warriors", of spiritual "buccaneers" with no "ministerial reverence" who rise up to obliterate the Old Covenant structures of Rahab in the Church. The transition from "19" to "20" represents the acceptance of the obliterating green-horse anointing; it represents the welcoming of green-horse Jonah. While America said, "Green, go home" to Terminator Jonah, the skies over the UK said to Jonah, "Welcome home!".

 

Some 12 hours after the time highlighted above, on May 20, 2006 (12:07 pm, UK time), an AFP report appeared on Yahoo! News indicating that American business tycoon Malcolm Glazer was back in the hospital after suffering a second stroke. Malcolm Glazer happens to be the owner of the English premiership football (soccer) club Manchester United, and he is also the owner of the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the USA. According to the report, Mr. Glazer had suffered a first stroke in April, and had been released after 7 days in the hospital (on April 23, 2006). Even though he came out of the hospital in good condition after the first stroke, sources indicated that this second stroke had left Mr. Glazer with speech and mobility impairments. "Coincidentally", Mr. Glazer bought the English club Manchester United in May 2005, the month when the first delay in America's revival was decreed by God. Mr. Glazer acquired a controlling interest of the club on May 13, 2005, 2 days after the delay decree (May 11, 2005).

 

Malcolm Glazer's stroke reveals a spiritual connection between events in America and the UK. According to a names-meaning website, the name "Malcolm" is a Scottish name meaning "disciple of Columba"; the name "Columba", in turn, means "dove", and is equivalent to the name "Columbus". According to the same names-meaning website, "Columba" was the name of a 6th-century Irish monk who established a monastery in Iona, off the coast of Scotland, and who is credited for converting Scotland to Christianity. Scotland is to the north and east of Ireland, just as the UK is to the north and east of America. Therefore, the name "Malcolm" speaks of God's original intention to send a "migration of revival" from America that would cross the Atlantic Ocean eastward and impact Europe, in the same way that Europe crossed the Atlantic Ocean through Columbus to impact America. "Coincidentally", according to wikipedia.org, Columba's feast day is celebrated on June 9, which, as we saw before, is the exact date when America's first testing period began. Columba died on June 9, 597. The Lord made me aware of all of this until today (June 8, 2006).

 

Manchester United is one of the most important football (soccer) clubs in England. According to wikipedia.org, it is the English team with the highest attendance over the past 50 seasons. It has won 15 FA Premier League/ Football League titles, and it was the first English team to win the European Cup, in 1968. Since the "FA Premier League" was formed in 1992, Manchester United has by far been the most successful team in England, winning 8 championships in 11 seasons, between 1992 and 2003. In a sense, to own Manchester United is equivalent to owning the New York Yankees or the Boston Red Sox in U.S. Major League Baseball. Therefore, ownership of Manchester United by an American represents the strong spiritual influence that God wanted America to have in the UK.

 

The fact that Malcolm Glazer is the owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers points to the army of "spiritual buccaneers" (mentioned above) whom God wanted to raise up in America in order to conquer Europe unto Him. However, since America failed to make the leap from "19" to "20" (from spiritual teenager to young spiritual adult), God's plans for the "American invasion" of Europe had to be delayed. This explains why Malcolm Glazer's takeover of "Man-U" was hostile, and it explains why the takeover plunged the club into massive debt, since it was based on mostly borrowed money. America was not ready to be used by God. It had been unwilling to work up the necessary "spiritual capital" to invade Europe. The American Church, to this day, still believes that she is in "tiptop" condition, with a need for some "tweaking here and there", but without any need for a major transformation. She thinks that she can export her brand of "Christianity" to the rest of the world, without understanding that she must first be broken asunder and redone before she can be a blessing to the rest of the world.

 

In the spirit realm, God spoke to the American Church of a spiritual plan, a plan in which she would be used to bring an awakening to the nations of the Earth. America then said to God,

"I know how that's done; we are good at evangelizing other nations. We've done that before, Lord. Just set things up for us. We have the methodologies and the organizational structures to get the message across."

To this, God replied,

"I must change you first, for your methodologies and your organizations are rubbish to Me. They reek of pastoral menstruation to Me. I am not calling you to fill church buildings; I am calling you to shape others into My image and likeness. Unfortunately, you do not see Me in My little ones, and you do not visualize Me in the ones I long to call. When you see them, you see replaceable pawns in a chess game. I am therefore sending My remnant to you. If you provide a safe haven to My remnant David, I shall bless you. He shall shape you and sharpen you like a sword that is readied for battle. If you ignore him, however, you shall be cursed. I shall wreak havoc upon you for the suffering you have caused My David, and I shall lunge My sword at you, cutting you down until you bow your knees before My remnant and say,

'Welcome you are in our midst; welcome you are, for we now see that God is in you, and you are in God. Take this house and do whatever you want with it, for we welcome king David into our fold. We are tired of this civil war. We choose God's choices and we adopt God's ways.'"

 

"1Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spake, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh. 2Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel. 3So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them in Hebron before the LORD: and they anointed David king over Israel." (2 Samuel 5:1-3)

 

At a crucial moment in history when God was calling the American Church for a mighty work, she said,

"I am complete; I have the most developed religious-ministry system in the world. Who is sending these annoying little ones to tell me I need a deep transformation?".

 

"3Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste? 5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. 6Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes" (Haggai 1:3-6)

[The house of the Lord here represents the people of God, for we are the temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16). While the American Church was busy erecting their own ministries and temples, they forgot to enable the prophetic remnant, God's little flock. As meaningless ministries flourished, the house of the little flock has remained in ruins, like a poor Lazarus dying off at the gate of the rich man's house. In this, the American Church showed that she believes in castes. She showed her inability to see the God-value in all believers, and, for that, she shall be judged unto restoration.]

 

In the spirit realm, America became like the ship that was taking Paul to Rome. Thinking that she needed no further processing, she set sail prematurely, without understanding what God demanded of her:

 

"8And, hardly passing it, came unto a place which is called The fair havens; nigh whereunto was the city of Lasea. 9Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them, 10And said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives. 11Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul. 12And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west. 13And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete." (Acts 27:8-13)

[The phrase "things which were spoken" in verse 11 was translated from the Greek word lego, which is the verb form of the word logos, which, in turn, means "word" and is related to God's sword of judgment (Hebrews 4:12). Therefore, verse 11 should really say, "... more than what was worded by Paul".]

 

The centurion judged Paul's words of judgment based on external criteria. To the centurion, it made more sense to listen to the pilot, since he had navigational expertise, and it also made more sense to listen to the owner of the ship, since the owner was, without a doubt, emotionally attached to his beloved ship, and would therefore be likely to make a decision in the best interest of the ship. By contrast, Paul was a Jewish preacher with no ship-piloting experience in his résumé, and with no major possessions in the ship. How could an itinerant Jewish preacher know more about navigation than a trained pilot? And how could it be believed that Paul cared about the loss of cargo, the ship, or the people's lives (v10), when none of those things or people were his? Wouldn't the ship's owner have more reason to be concerned about the ship, its cargo, and the people? Because of this, the remnant's (i.e.- Paul's) words found no place in the centurion's heart. No "fair haven" (v8) was found in his heart for Paul's words. Since Paul and his words were inseparable, "no safe haven for his words" automatically meant "no safe haven for Paul" either. You cannot embrace the remnant before embracing their words, because the remnant is comprised of those who would rather go to hell (i.e.- Sheol) and oblivion than compromise the spirit of the Word that has been sown by God into their hearts.

Since the centurion chose not to heed Paul's words, Paul was not allowed to rest for a season at "Fair Havens" (v8). Instead, he was dragged through a journey full of unnecessary turmoil. Since Paul had the heart of a shackled green-horse rider, he was willing to go through hell if that was what it would take to unleash God's vengeance against the idolized ship. Through that unleashed vengeance, the people in the ship would be forced to shift their faith from the ship to God.

 

"14But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon. 15And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive. 16And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat: 17Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, strake sail, and so were driven. 18And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship; 19And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship. 20And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away." (Acts 27:14-20)

[Notice how God forced the ship's crew to heed the promptings of the "wind", i.e.- the invisible Spirit of God (v14)]

 

The word "Euroclydon" in verse 14 is derived from the prefix euros meaning "the east wind" and the Greek word klydon meaning "a dashing or surging wave, a violent agitation of the sea"; klydon is the same word that appears in James 1:6, in the passage that speaks against "double-souled", wavy believers. Since the American Church is a wavy, half-hearted Church that wanted to please God and man at the same time, the passage above applies to America. As God has shifted His focus towards "Euro-pa", He has sent Euro-clydon against the land of "Uncle Tom".

Since you became doubtful like the centurion, the Euroclydon is coming against you. You shall be redeemed, but at a much higher price than I originally demanded, says the Lord. I shall come in devastating judgment against you until you are willing to provide a safe haven for the word that is in My remnant. My decree is irrevocable, and no intercessor can make it go away. Wave after wave shall come upon you, like a tidal, unrelenting storm. You shall ask, "What have we done? What have we done?". And I shall replay, "What have you not done? What have you not done?" I pleaded with you, knocking on your door, begging for you to host My remnant, yet you ignored My plea and disregarded My call. For you thought that the Mighty don't beg and the Powerful don't plead. Yet, I, El Elyon, begged with you and you did not hear Me. I, El Shaddai, pleaded with you, and you did not tend to Me. Therefore, I shall come as Adonai against you. In judgment I shall deal with you, and in punishment I shall speak to you. You will beg and you will plead, and, in your begging, you will recognize My begging, and, in your pleading, you will recognize My pleading. You shall then come to Me, and I shall heal you. After tearing you asunder, I shall bind you together, and you shall know that I am your Lord.

 

"21But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. 22And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship." (Acts 27:21-22)

 

Just as the lives in the ship were not lost, America's calling as a nation will not perish, but the religious system (the ship) she has trusted in shall be broken asunder. Since the ship was unwilling to serve as a "fair haven" hotel for God's remnant, it has been condemned unto turbulent destruction.

 

"And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves." (Acts 27:41)

[The place "where 2 seas met" represents the spirit of compromise. As the American Church was torn between following the "remnant call" and preserving her religious structures, she placed herself in a situation where God had no choice but to break the ship in two.]

 

In short, Malcolm Glazer's premature takeover of Manchester United is a figure of how the American Church prematurely said, "I am ready for you". In her current condition, the American Church is useless for God's invasion of Europe. The ship that the American "disciples of Columba" were planning to use for her spiritual trek across the Atlantic Ocean proved to be a useless ship to God the moment that America said, "This ship shall not be a fair haven to Your remnant". By saying this, the American Church guaranteed disaster for America as she went from "19" to "20".

 

In her maiden voyage, the Titanic left Southampton, England, with New York City as its final destination. However, during that maiden voyage, on April 14, 1912, the Titanic hit an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean at 11:40 pm; the ship broke into 2 pieces, which led to a slow sinking process that lasted 160 minutes (according to wikipedia.org). The Lord's intention was to have a spiritual revival starting in New York City, a revival that would cross the Atlantic Ocean and reach England, spreading throughout the UK and the rest of Europe. Unfortunately, the American Church hardened her heart against God' remnant, which caused the "revival migration" to be thwarted. Just like a Titanic traveling in the opposite direction, the American revival ship that was to reach Europe broke in 2 pieces and sank. Just like the arrogant builders and owners of the Titanic, the American Church was too proud to recognize her weakness and poverty.

 

The Titanic was the second of a trio of superliners. This is a figure of how America's revival delay was prompted by its "2 out of 3" spirit. After Titanic's sinking, her younger sister "HMHS Britannic" was built. This is a figure of how God shifted His focus towards the UK and Europe due to the hardness of the American Church.

 

Silent warning

A few hours after the time mentioned earlier (May 19, 2006 at 6:00 pm U.S. CDT), I felt the prompting to search the Internet for "warnings" for "California" on "May 19, 2006". Because it was a significant date and time in the spirit realm, we knew that something in the physical realm would be manifested as that date and time approached. This is how the Lord led me to the following warning on the NOAA/NWS website for San Luis Obispo County, California:

 

[Yellow highlights added by us]

 

530 AM PDT FRI MAY 19 2006
...AN UNUSUALLY LATE SEASON STORM MAY BRING HEAVY RAIN TO
SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA LATE THIS WEEKEND...
AN UNSEASONABLY STRONG AND COLD UPPER LOW WAS TAKING SHAPE IN THE
EASTERN PACIFIC THIS MORNING
. THIS STORM SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TO GATHER STRENGTH AND MOISTURE AS IT SLOWLY DROPS
SOUTHWARD TO A POSITION SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES WEST OF SAN FRANCISCO
BY LATE TONIGHT. THE UPPER LOW IS FORECAST TO REMAIN NEARLY
STATIONARY SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT...WITH AN INCREASINGLY
MOIST AND ORGANIZED SURFACE FRONT DEVELOPING OFF THE WEST COAST.
THIS FRONTAL SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO PUSH INTO SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA
ON SUNDAY...CAUSING RAIN TO BECOME LIKELY ACROSS THE AREA. A FEW
COMPUTER WEATHER MODELS ARE INDICATING THAT THE FRONT WILL ENHANCE
QUITE A BIT AS IT MOVES ACROSS THE AREA LATE SUNDAY AND SUNDAY
NIGHT...POSSIBLY BRINGING HEAVY RAIN AND EVEN SOME THUNDERSTORMS TO
THE REGION. STRONG LOW LEVEL SOUTHERLY FLOW AHEAD OF THE FRONT WILL
CAUSE WIND GUSTS OVER 40 MPH IN THE MOUNTAINS...WITH GUSTY WINDS
LIKELY IN MANY COASTAL AND VALLEY AREAS SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY NIGHT. IN
ADDITION...THE SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL FURTHER ENHANCE RAINFALL IN AND
BELOW TERRAIN WITH A SOUTH OR SOUTHWEST EXPOSURE TO THE OCEAN.
RAIN SHOULD TURN TO SHOWERS ACROSS THE AREA FAIRLY EARLY MONDAY
MORNING AS THE FRONT MOVES EASTWARD. SINCE THE SYSTEM HAS NOT YET
COMPLETELY DEVELOPED...ITS EVOLUTION AND ITS EVENTUAL EFFECTS ON THE
WEATHER IN SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA ARE STILL SOMEWHAT IN QUESTION.

HOWEVER...THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR A FAIRLY GOOD LATE SEASON SOAKING
ACROSS THE AREA SUNDAY INTO EARLY MONDAY
. VERY PRELIMINARY ESTIMATES
OF RAINFALL WITH THIS STORM ARE FOR ONE HALF TO ONE INCH IN COASTAL

MOUNTAINS. HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE IN OROGRAPHICALLY FAVORED
LOCATIONS. SNOW LEVELS WILL LIKELY BE ABOVE 7500 FEET THROUGH
SUNDAY...THEN COULD LOWER TO 6000 FEET SUNDAY NIGHT...WITH SEVERAL
INCHES OF SNOW POSSIBLE ABOVE THIS LEVEL.
RESIDENTS OF SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA ARE URGED TO STAY TUNED TO

Notice how NOAA reported that an "unseasonably strong and cold" storm system was taking shape in the Eastern Pacific. As you may recall, the Lord prompted us to label the period between December 24, 2005 and May 19, 2006 as part of the "Calm before the storm" in the previous posting. Therefore, it made sense for an "unseasonable" storm to form in the Pacific Ocean, since the word "pacific" and "calm" are synonymous. The fact that it formed in the "Eastern Pacific" is no coincidence either, since it points to the Euroclydon storm studied earlier; as we said above, the prefix "Euro" means "the east wind".

 

On May 22, 2006, this unusual Eastern Pacific storm hit southern California, causing record rainfall, according to NOAA. The signonsandiego.com weblog, for example, has the following entry for May 23, 2006:

 

[Yellow highlights added by us]

 

Numerous daily rainfall records were set in Southern California yesterday. The NWS has a link up to a list; see it here. Some sites had NEVER recorded rain on May 22. Others had just a few hundredths. In every case but one, the record set yesterday was at least double the previous high for the date. Goes to show you how unusual the storm was. ...
The weather changed quickly. Today is clear as a bell and warmer. Lindbergh has already topped 71; average high for the day is 69. Yesterday, the high was 68. Tomorrow is expected to be 5-10 degrees warmer. Then a cooling trend sets in, with a return to May gray beginning Thursday.
 

Posted by Robert Krier at 12:18 PM
 

Flooding and mudslides were caused by this "unusual" Eastern Pacific storm in Southern California. The warning about this storm was issued on May 19, but the storm hit until May 22. There is a prophetic reason for this. As we have said before, the number "22" represents "spiritual civil war", and that is the number that God has decreed over America. Therefore, God caused this unusual storm to hit on the 22nd of May to emphasize the period of civil war that He has decreed over America because of her half-hearted waviness. Notice how the weblog entry above says that the weather in southern California would return to cooler weather and "May gray" later that week, which emphasizes how America's lukewarm grayness has led to the Euroclydon storm being sent against her.

 

As you may have noticed, the May 19 NOAA warning (replicated above) was for "San Luis Obispo County, California". Even though similar warnings were issued by NOAA for other California counties that day, the fact that the Lord led us to find the warning for this county first has prophetic significance. The name "San Luis Obispo" literally means "St. Louis Bishop". As we have shared before, the name "St. Louis" points to the Girgashite spirit of "ministerial hierarchies" in America, and the word "bishop" points to the pastoral ministry. Therefore, the name "San Luis Obispo" means that Euroclydon is being sent against America on account of the "ministerial hierarchs" who want a "revival", but one which preserves the pastoral matriarchy structures that keep them in unGodly control of the Church. These "Korahs" do not want to admit the inherent failures in their paradigms, even when God has already exposed their failures in the spirit realm. Since most of the American Church sided with "St. Louis Bishop", America has dragged herself into a period of spiritual turmoil that will last until May 11, 2009.

 

The May 19 Eastern Pacific storm that hit southern California on May 22, 2006 was prophetic confirmation of the importance of May 19, 2006 in the spirit realm, and it is a silent warning of what is to come over California. Notice how the NOAA warning above ends with an urgent call for southern Californians to remain on alert. This is a figure of what this storm came to do. It is a silent warning of things to come.

 

From 7 to 8

In our previous posting, we shared that the "4th period", from December 24, 2005 to May 19, 2006, was, until then, a 21-week period. This made it different from the other periods because the other ones were in multiples of 8 weeks, while this 4th period was, until then, a multiple of 7 weeks (21 = 7 times 3). As we were typing about that in the previous posting, the Lord kept impressing the phrase "From 7 to 8" in my heart. At the time, I had no clear idea as to what He was trying to make me understand, but I felt an urge to extend the 21-week 4th period so that it would also become a multiple of 8 weeks. That meant extending the period 3 more weeks to make it a 24-week period (24 = 8 times 3). Since 3 weeks equals 21 days, God was prompting us to add 21 days to the 21-week period. Therefore, we were being told to add an extra day to each of the 21 weeks. From that perspective, the 24-week period would be equivalent to a 21-week period where each "week" was 8-days long (rather than 7).

 

As we have studied before, Jesus died before the Sabbath, on Day 6 of the week. He remained buried during the Sabbath, i.e.- Day 7, and He rose again on the 1st day of the following week, which can be taken as "Day 8" if we extend the week by one day. After suffering the tortures of Sheol, Jesus ended up in Paradise, the "nice" section of Sheol with "air conditioning" (Luke 23:43, Luke 16:22-26). Had Yeshua been satisfied with the "comfortable" life in the "Paradise bubble" (after being buried on Day 7), He would have never clamored for liberation from Sheol, and He would have never resurrected on Day 8. After all, Paradise was not a terrible place. In fact, it was a place of great consolation.

 

"But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented" (Luke 16:25)

 

After suffering the torments of Sheol, Yeshua had the right to stay in Paradise, Abraham's bosom, and to be consoled there for all of His sorrows (Isaiah 53:3). Yet, Yeshua was not a man concerned with "seeking consolation". Unlike most "Christians", the focus of Yeshua's life was never on "minimizing suffering and maximizing happiness". Instead, His focus was on fulfilling God's plan for Himself and for others. His focus was on getting man to reach the fullness of His potential. His goal was for the fullness of God to be manifested in Adam, God's creation, and He was not about to give up until that goal was fulfilled. Had He settled for a nice happy life in the Paradise bubble, God's potential in Him would not have been materialized, and Adam (this time, the "latter" Adam) would have once again fallen short.

 

In my interaction with believers, especially those of a prophetic inclination, I have found that they generally do empathize with those who go through the "Sheol process". They understand those who have been through "hell", but it seems as if their only goal is to "bandage the wounds" and "soothe the bumps". In other words, they are satisfied with "Day 7" rest. As long as the suffering "Lazarus" has been placed in a pleasant Paradise bubble, their concerns are over, and they move on to the next case.

 

However, those who are truly of the remnant spirit will not be satisfied with a nice apartment in the "retirement complex" of Paradise City. To them, that Paradise will still seem like a prison, a comfortable prison, mind you, but a prison nonetheless. Remnant believers are not comfortable with being stuck at "Day-7 rest". They know that "Day 8" is necessary to complete the "metamorphosis". They know that a full regeneration of their human nature is required, and they know that that regeneration occurs upon "Day-8 resurrection". As they arise out of Paradise in new resurrection nature, they not only complete their own metamorphosis, but they trigger the unleashing of mighty power that revolutionizes the world around them. Jesus' ascension from Sheol led to the complete destruction of the Mosaic religious system, to the demise of the Israelite nation for over 1800 years, and to a spiritual (and cultural) revolution that has impacted all of mankind for centuries, even to this day. The completion of His own metamorphosis triggered the metamorphosis of the entire world around Him. This is what happens, fellow believer, when green-horse believers clamor their way out of Paradise, arising on "Day 8".

 

"9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." (Revelation 6:9-11)

[As shown by verse 10, the liberation of God's remnant from Sheol hinges upon the unleashing of God's vindicating vengeance against Korah and his followers.]

 

"8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Psalm 16:8-11)

 

Notice how, in both passages above, the verse where the remnant are clamoring for "liberation" and "vindication" is verse 10. As we have studied before, the number "10" speaks of prophetic sacrifice. Therefore, the desire for freedom from Sheol and for vengeance against God's enemies is not at all "anti-prophetic". In fact, it represents the completion of our prophetic process.

 

Most prophetic intercessors out there are "Day-7" intercessors; they are happy soothing believers, but they leave them trapped in Paradise Prison, forgetting altogether what the entire process was for. The reason for the Hell and Death of Days 6 and 7 is to enable the transformation of "Day-8" resurrection. What is the point of going through hell, if you will not resurrect in newness of life afterwards? To be a "Day-7" prophet is to be a 2-out-of-3 prophet, because it means that you are comfortable with 2 days (Days 6 and 7) but indifferent about the 3rd day (Day 8). As we have said before, a 2-out-of-3 prophet is a false prophet, no matter how good his or her intentions may be.

 

America's false-prophecy spirit is what prevented her from perceiving God's ultimate purpose for His suffering remnant. The prophets in the American Church failed to understand that God came to bring a "Day-8" regeneration of the Church, and they failed to understand that, by enabling the remnant's way out of Sheol, they were enabling the entire Church's transformation.

 

Because of this, the God of Israel shall judge America for hindering the coming of "Day 8" for God's remnant. As a prophetic figure, the "4th judging period" for America will have lasted 24 weeks. The first 21 weeks represented "Day 7", and the final 3 weeks (21 days) represented "Day 8". This means that the 4th judging period, which started on December 24, 2005, ended on June 9, 2006.

Notice how the final date of the 4th period (June 9, 2006) coincides with the initial date of the 1st period (June 9, 2004). This reveals that the first 4 periods form a self-enclosed loop. Notice also that the 4th period is 3 times as long as the 3rd period. As we shared before, a brother in Christ sent us a dream via email that ended with the expression "2 x 3, 3 x 2". Based on the length of the 4th period, we can now infer the numerical meaning of the expression "2 x 3, 3 x 2":

Divide the period length by 2 and by 3; then multiply the period length by 3 and by 2

This means that there will be a 5th judging period starting June 11, 2006 whose length will be 2 times as long as the 4th period, which implies that it will be 48 (=24 times 2) weeks long. This leaves our "periodic table" as follows:

 

Period Start End Milestone date # Days # Weeks Factor for next period
#1 Jun 9, 2004 May 10, 2005 May 11, 2005 336 48 Divide by 2
#2 May 12, 2005 Oct 26, 2005 Oct 27, 2005 168 24 Divide by 3
#3 Oct 28, 2005 Dec 22, 2005 Dec 23, 2005 56 8 Multiply by 3
#4 Dec 24, 2005 May 19, 2006 May 20, 2006 168 24 Multiply by 2
May 20, 2006 Jun 9, 2006 June 10, 2006
#5 June 11, 2006 May 12, 2007 May 13, 2007 336 48  

 

Notice again how the final date of the 5th period (May 12, 2007) coincides with the initial date of the 1st period (May 12, 2005). The 2nd through 5th periods are the periods following May 11, 2005, the red-alert date of the first delay decree. This again reveals that these 4 red-alert periods form a self-enclosed loop.

 

Atlantic June 10

The milestone date after period #4 is June 10, 2006. Interestingly enough, this date is 34390 days after the sinking of the Titanic (mentioned above). Notice that the number "439" appears in the middle of the number "34390". As we have shared before, the number "439" points to God's indictment against America for not removing the carcasses of the Church's cursed kings (i.e.- ministers). If you remove the "439" in the middle of "34390", you get the number "30", which, as we have said before, speaks of ministerial maturity.  If America had promptly removed the kings' carcasses that were standing in the middle of God's way, she would have paved the way for her own ministerial maturity. She would have been quickly enabled to take the Gospel across the Atlantic Ocean, impacting Europe and the rest of the world. Since she refused to "scatter" after God proved her religious system lacking, America's usability as an exporter of God's revival sank like the Titanic in the Atlantic.

 

According to wikipedia.org, the first tropical depression of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season formed in the northwestern Caribbean Sea on June 10, 2006. This depression went on to become tropical storm Alberto. Just as an "unusual" storm was spotted in the Pacific on May 19, 2006, a tropical storm was spotted in the Atlantic on June 10, 2006. Notice, therefore, how the two milestones associated to period #4 led to storms in each of the oceans that surround America. This is no coincidence. Is anyone listening to the roar of the coming thunder?

 

On June 10, 2006, as Alberto was forming in the waters of the Caribbean, 3 prisoners committed suicide at the U.S. detention camp in Guantanamo Bay (in the Caribbean island of Cuba). This created an international wave of protests against America, serving as one more embarrassment for the Bush administration. This is a figure of how God shall use the unrighteousness harbored by America against her; He shall use that unrighteousness to embarrass her and expose her lack of judgment, for she is bent on helping the unrighteous and hindering the righteous.

 

The Battle of Stoke Field

Despite our efforts to post this word before June 10, 2006, we were unable to do so until today, June 16, 2006. In my inner being, I knew that there was a prophetic reason for this. As I searched on wikipedia.org for something related to the date "June 16", I learned that the Battle of Stoke Field was fought on June 16, 1487, exactly 519 years ago. This battle is important in Britain's history, since it marked the end of the Wars of the Roses, the period of civil war that pitted the "House of Lancaster" against the "House of York". In a last-ditch effort to unseat the house of Lancaster from the throne of England, a Yorkist fleet set sail and arrived in Dublin, Ireland on May 4, 1487. There, the Yorkist faction recruited 4500 Irish mercenaries. The Yorkists then went on the attack against king Henry VII's army. On June 10, 1487, the fighting began, with 2000 Yorkists defeating a small force of 400 Lancastrians at Bramham Moor, outside Tadcaster. The Yorkists advanced south, reaching Doncaster, where they drove the Lancastrians back even further. However, the 3 days of skirmishes there slowed the Yorkists' advance long enough for the Lancastrians to receive substantial reinforcements.

 

On June 16, 1487, the Yorkists and king Henry's army met by the river Trent at the village of East Stoke. There, the Yorkists surrendered the high ground, going immediately on the attack. After over 3 hours of bitter battle, however, the Yorkists began to lose strength. The German and Swiss mercenaries hired by the Yorkists were unable to withstand the Lancastrian attack. All of the Yorkist commanders fell fighting, and the Yorkists were forced to surrender and recognize king Henry VII as the legitimate king of Britain.

 

As we have said before, God has decreed a period of civil war over America as He has shifted His focus towards the UK and Europe. Therefore, it is fittingly prophetic that He led us to post this word on the date when the British civil war period, known as the Wars of the Roses, ended. As Britain enters a period of reconciliation with God, America has entered a period of open conflict with the God of Israel.

 

In a spiritual sense, by attempting to dethrone Henry the 7th, the Yorkists were trying to prevent the emergence of Henry the 8th. In the same way, there are spiritual forces in America that have tried to prevent the manifestation of "Day 8" (studied above). While the stumbling blocks to "Day 8" are currently being removed in the UK, those same stumbling blocks are being fortified in America. Therefore, God shall deal harshly with the land of "Uncle Tom". Eventually, the battle of Stoke Field shall be fought in America as well, and the civil war of the roses between God and the American Church shall end. That's when revival will hit America.

 

A lump-sum treatment

As I meditated on the 5 judgment periods listed above, the Lord made me understand that there would be a 6th judgment period. This period's length would equal the combined lengths of the 4 red-alert periods (periods 2 through 5). This means that this 6th period will be 104 weeks long (=24+8+24+48). This period will lump all the judgments in the red-alert periods, i.e.- the judgments caused by America's disregard for God's warnings. This leaves our "periodic table" as follows:

 

Period Start End Milestone date # Days # Weeks Operation for the next period
#1 Jun 9, 2004 May 10, 2005 May 11, 2005 336 48 Divide by 2
#2 May 12, 2005 Oct 26, 2005 Oct 27, 2005 168 24 Divide by 3
#3 Oct 28, 2005 Dec 22, 2005 Dec 23, 2005 56 8 Multiply by 3
#4 Dec 24, 2005 Jun 9, 2006 June 10, 2006 168 24 Multiply by 2
#5 June 11, 2006 May 12, 2007 May 13, 2007 336 48 Add periods 2-5
#6 May 14, 2007 May 10, 2009 May 11, 2009 728 104  

 

Notice how the milestone date for period #6 (May 11, 2009) coincides with the milestone date for period #1 (May 11, 2005). As we have said before, May 11, 2005 marked the beginning of a delay in America's revival, a delay that would last 4 years. Therefore, it is amazing to consider that the milestone date for the 6th period is exactly 4 years after May 11, 2005. In other words, immediately after the 6th period, the 4-year delay in America's revival will have ended. Only God can produce such amazingly precise timetables!!! Our God is an awesome God!

 

If you total the number of weeks in all 6 periods, you get 256 weeks. "Coincidentally", the number 256 equals 2 to the 8th power (28). In other words, it equals 2 multiplied 8 times (2 times 2 times 2 times 2, etc.) The number "8" speaks of Noah-style regeneration (i.e.- destructive judgment that cleans the slate in order to start anew), and the number "2" points to the 2 witnesses of Revelation 11. Therefore, the number 256 speaks of God's power-filled regeneration of America (and the Church in general) through those of you who have chosen to carry the mantle of the 2-witness anointing over your lives. God's blessed outpouring shall come over America after He is done purifying her with harsh judgments.

 

If you include the milestone dates, the 6 periods above cover a total of 1798 days (256 weeks plus 6 milestone dates). The number 1798 equals 2 times 29 times 31. The number "2" once again points to the 2-witness anointing; the number "29" points to the roaring voice of God that causes the earth to tremble and the cedars to fall (Psalm 29); and the number "31" (when used in a good sense) points to prophetic intercession that tears down Amorite giants. Therefore, the 1798 days covered by these 6 periods represent the roaring of God's voice at the prompting of His 2-witness believers who have been in prophetic intercession; their intercession has been through the shedding of their very lives as a living sacrifice so that God's purposes may be fulfilled on Earth.

 

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death" (Revelation 12:11)

 

The number 104 that appears in the table above has prophetic significance. It points to Psalm 104 and to the work of regeneration that God is doing in the Church. The line has been drawn, and God's work shall be done, for there shall be no more delay (Revelation 10:6).

 

God willing, we will share more on all of this in a future posting...
