Received by: Darlene Fellman

 

{Sister Darlene received this word on the day of the U.S. elections}

 

It was Nov. 2, 2004. All in one day off the West coast of Vancouver Island, BC, there were 7 earthquakes out in the Ocean, not strong enough to do anything, but quite notable on the graphs. So, I felt those 7 earthquakes were a wakeup call to the Churches here in Canada and anywhere else for that matter!

WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP,
MY SLEEPING CHURCH WAKE UP!
HAVE YOU NOT SEEN AND HAVE YOU NOT HEARD!!
EVEN THE EARTH BENEATH DOES MOURN!
THE MOUNTAINS SPEW FORTH,
YET YOU DO NOT AWAKE!!
SATAN IS ON THE LOOSE LETTING FILTH BECOME EVEN MORE RAMPANT….. 
YOU ARE SLEEPING, AWAKE ….. 
KNOW THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES


IT IS NOW TIME TO AWAKE AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE CALL UPON ME.

DRAW NEAR TO ME, WORSHIP ME NOW.

CLING TO ME, KNOW MY THOUGHTS, KNOW MY WAYS,
YOU HAVE BEEN LULLED BY YOUR FLESH, THE WORLD AND DEMONIC INFLUENCES…..

ARISE FROM YOUR SLUMBER COME TO ME NOW!!!

THE TIME IS CLOSE AT HAND WHEN DIVISIONS WILL BE SET…

WHICH SIDE WILL YOU TAKE…

IF YOU ARE NOT FOUND IN ME,
WILL YOU THEN KNOW WHICH SIDE YOU ARE ON?
BEWARE OF THE DECEPTION OF THE ENEMY NOW

AS HE FINDS THOSE SLEEPING AND NOT AWARE…..

 

THE ALARM IS NOW SOUNDING…

AWAKE AND PRAY

COME TO ME NOW BEFORE THE EVIL OVERCOMES MY BELOVED ONES…

 

Our comments

War before the harvest

This word is a spiritual complement to another word we received via e-mail on July 30, 2004, almost exactly 5 months before we received this e-mail (on December 29). If we start counting from July 30, 2004 (taking July 30 as day #1), December 29 is day #153. This number has great significance in Scripture:

 

"9As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. 10Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 11Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken." (John 21:9-11)

 

The number 153 equals 17 times 9. As we have said before, the number "17" represents the manifestation of God's prophetic remnant in these latter days, and the number "9" speaks of "spiritual power". Therefore, the number "153" means that, in the days when the prophetic remnant is fully manifested in the Church, Holy Spirit power will be released in levels never before seen in the history of mankind, and a great spiritual harvest will be reaped unto the Lord. As we have said before, extraordinary, life-transforming power is released only after a foundation of truth and judgments has been laid, and the latter-day remnant will lay that foundation because it will be aware that God "writes from right to left". Because of its "wild ass" anointing, the prophetic remnant will be endowed with a mighty evangelistic anointing that will lead to the greatest and most awesome harvest of souls in the history of mankind.

 

When used in a positive sense, "burning coals" are a figure of God's purifying judgments (Habakkuk 3:5, Proverbs 25:21-22, Psalm 18:8, Hebrews 12:29). Therefore, the fish that was laying on a "fire of coals" in John 21:9 speaks of a Church that is willing to go through God's purifying judgments, meaning that it will be a Church under a strong apostolic anointing (since the apostolic ministry is the "judging ministry"), while the "bread" in John 21:9 speaks of the prophetic anointing. Without a foundation of apostolic judgments and prophetic vision (Ephesians 2:20), the latter-day harvest will not come. The latter-day Church, however, will be one where believers in general will flow in the apostolic and prophetic anointing, because they will be willing to accept and to execute God's judgments and they will be willing to lay down their lives in prophetic sacrifice for the sake of others.

 

Therefore, the fact that God inspired two believers (sister Lauretta and sister Darlene) to send complementary words within a 153-day period means that all of this will not happen until the Church wakes up and a definition is made that will separate those that truly long for God from those who are either indifferent to Him or are only after earthly blessings from Him. This moment of definition will come as determined believers begin to walk in the red-horse anointing that causes "division" and takes away the "religious peace" inside the Church's earthly structures. There must be war inside the Church before the harvest can be gathered:

 

"9Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: 10Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. 11Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. 12Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. 13Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. 14Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision." (Joel 3:9-14)

[The word "heathen" is a misleading translation of the Hebrew word goyim, which literally means "nations", which, as we have seen before, speaks of people under Girgashite influence]

 

Notice that verse 9 speaks of "waking up", which corresponds to the word given to sister Fellman. The phrase "let the weak say, I am strong" in verse 10 means that those who have been labeled as weak and irrelevant by the Church's religious structures will be the very ones that God will use to manifest His strong spirit nature in these latter days. The mighty ones that will come down (v11) are the Amorites that have ruled over the Church for centuries. The name "Jehoshaphat" in verse 12 literally means "Jehovah has judged", and speaks of God coming to separate the wheat from the tare inside His Church. Notice also how verse 13 speaks of the "ripe harvest", which once again points to the harvest that the Lord prophesies in John 21:9-11 above.

 

Who is being called to decide?

The "valley of Jehoshaphat" (Joel 3:12) is called the "valley of decision" in Joel 3:14. Why? Because it is a valley where the multitudes of believers must decide which side they are on. Girgashite eschatologists teach that passages such as Joel 3:9-14 are referring to the latter-day judgment against unbelievers, yet, as we have said before, these men do not understand that the Scriptures clearly teach that judgment must begin in the House of God (1 Peter 4:17).

 

If you read the beginning of Joel chapter 3, you will notice that the chapter is written in the context of the restoration of God's people after centuries of spiritual oppression. Joel 3:3 speaks of the boys among God's people being given over in exchange for harlots, and it speaks of the girls among God's people being sold for wine, all of which points to how the Church has sold out the God-potential in faithful believers in exchange for temporary blessings. Is it valid to say that the unbelievers are selling out God's people? Wasn't Jesus sold out by one of his own? (John 13:18, Micah 7:5-6). He was not sold out by the unbelieving Romans (Matthew 27:13-25), and neither is God's faithful remnant being sold out by the unbelievers. Was Joseph sold into slavery by strangers? Wasn't he sold out by his own brothers? The eschatologists who teach believers to read Joel chapter 3 as a prophecy against the unsaved world do so out of their spiritual blindness. Their hearts are unwilling to see the corruption that man has introduced into God's Church (Luke 12:45-48), and they silence any voice (Amos 2:9-13, Matthew 23:34) that rises up to confront their corruption.

 

It becomes evident, therefore, that Joel chapter 3 is prophetic word about the restoration of God's people, i.e.- the Church! If you read the preceding chapter, you will also see that it is a call to repentance among God's people (Joel 2:12-17), not the unsaved world. The entire book of Joel is a message to the Church, not to the unbelievers. The religious leaders of the Church, however, have been unable to see this, because the Church is currently being ruled by a principality in denial.

 

"39And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 40And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 41Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth." (John 9:39-41)

[It must be noted that the Lord said these words to Jewish religious leaders, not to unbelieving "pagans". The fact that the Lord speaks of "judgment against the world" (v9) when pronouncing judgment against the Jews -- God's own people (John 1:11, Romans 11:1) -- means that any believer who operates by the earth's hierarchical methodologies (Matthew 20:25-28) is "one with the world" in God's eyes, even if he or she has been born again.]

 

The sign of the times

The Lord inspired this prophetic word in sister Fellman as she learned of the 7 earthquakes that took place out in the ocean, off the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC, on November 2, 2004. Some 50 days later, around December 22, 2004 (American continent time), a massive 8.1-magnitude quake struck the ocean floor between Australia and Antarctica, causing buildings to shake thousands of miles away, but causing no serious damage. Three days after that, on December 25, 2004 (American continent time), a massive 9.0-magnitude quake shook the ocean floor off the coast of Indonesia, causing tsunamis that killed over 150,000 in 11 countries.

 

As we shared in our word on the tsunamis, the fact that the waves that killed so many people came "out of nowhere" were a prophetic figure of Jonah's appearance in Nineveh. Just as Jonah was prepared for 3 days and 3 nights inside Sheol, hidden from the natural sight of man, so was the 9.0-magnitude quake being prepared in the depths of the Earth, without anyone being aware of it. The 8.1-magnitude quake received no publicity because it happened in the southernmost parts of the Earth and caused no major damage. Neither did the 7 quakes off the Vancouver Island coast receive much publicity. Yet, they were preludes of what was to happen days later.

 

This is what the Lord Jesus was referring to when He spoke of the "sign of Jonah":

 

"29And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. 30For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. 31The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. 32The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here." (Luke 11:29-32)

 

Notice that the passage above speaks of a great multitude gathering together (v29), which corresponds to the gathering of multitudes mentioned by the Lord in Joel 3:14 quoted above. It is worth noting that the multitude that was gathered there and was "seeking a sign" (v29) were not the idolater Romans; they were God's own people (Matthew 12:38-39)!

 

As we briefly shared in a previous word, "Jonah" speaks of the prophetic remnant breaking out of the Sheol prison to which the religious structures have relegated it, just as Joseph came out of the Egyptian prison, and just as the Lord Jesus came out of the prison of Sheol. Jonah literally appeared in Nineveh "out of nowhere", as a foreigner and a complete unknown. The Ninevites did not believe him because he showed them his seminary diploma. They did not believe him because of the fine clothes he was wearing or the luxurious chariot he was riding. They believed him because that man carried the invisible anointing of a man who had been to hell (i.e.- Sheol -- Jonah 2:2) and back. This, in essence, is the "sign of Jonah", and this is the "sign of the times" that God inspired sister Fellman to speak about.

 

Notice also that the Lord equates the "sign of Jonah" (Luke 11:29) with the "sign of the Son of Man" (Luke 11:30), which He also mentions in the following passage:

 

"29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:29-30)

 

Notice that the passage above speaks of the sun darkening, the moon not giving her light, and the stars falling from heaven, which is exactly what the Lord says in Joel 3:15, one verse after Joel 3:14 quoted above. All of this means that the coming of the Son of Man (Matthew 24:30) is the manifestation of "Jonah" (i.e.- Yeshua) among His own people!!! The Lord Jesus will manifest Himself through a remnant with no credentials but the invisible anointing of a nation of people that were willing to lay down their lives in prophetic sacrifice so that the Church and the world may be restored (this is what it means to have gone to Sheol and back). Yeshua will manifest Himself among His people first; He will conquer the Church back unto the Father first, and He will then go out to conquer the world unto God. This is the second coming, and no amount of eschatological parrot talk will change that.

 

The deception

The "deception" that sister Fellman mentions in her prophetic word refers to the deception of the "spirit of anti-Christ" that the Lord refers to in Matthew 24:4-5. As we said before, Matthew 24:4-5 does not refer to crazy people out there who claim to be physical reincarnations of the historical Jesus. That would be too obvious!!! The spirit of anti-Christ refers to those who claim a monopoly on the Anointing based on their "religious credentials". As we said before, an "anti-Christ" is a person who pretends to be a permanent intermediary between God's people and the Anointing. This is the deception that God is warning against through Matthew 24:4-5 and through sister Darlene's prophetic word.

 

The elections

The fact that sister Darlene received this word on the day of the U.S. elections (November 2, 2004) is no coincidence. As we said in a previous word, the liberal psychologists in the U.S. have surreptitiously labeled George W. Bush as an annoying "psychological PEST". As we said before, this is due to the fact that George W. Bush has the "spiritual-pestilence" anointing that is characteristic of red-horse riders. Through such riders, God is waging war and turning the sky red with His wrath, and He is puncturing a gaping hole through the spiritual atmosphere of the Earth so that believers (and the world) in general may have direct access to God the Father.

 

Time is zipping by

In the e-mail that contained sister Darlene's prophetic word, she wrote the following in parentheses: "time is zipping by". I was amazed to see that sister Lauretta Weir (who sent the prophetic word that complements sister Darlene's word) prophetically spoke of the shortening of time as well. According to her e-mail, sister Darlene had come across our site on the very day that she e-mailed the word to us, and she shares with us that she had read the first of the "Pre-parousia" articles that day (which, as you may know, is quite long). This means that the only reason why her word complemented sister Lauretta's word so well is because the Spirit of God inspired both words.

 

God is speaking through His prophets, and time is being shortened so that the spiritual tribulation that currently befalls the prophetic remnant may soon end and God's Glory may be manifested in the flesh (Matthew 24:21-22).
