Monmouth (Part 2)

First posted: November 27, 2007

 

This is a continuation of the word on the Monmouth whale posted earlier...

 

Answer

Spring delayed

The dead whale mentioned in the previous word appeared on a beach in Spring Lake, a borough in Monmouth County, New Jersey. According to wikipedia.org, Spring Lake and its environs are known as the "Irish Riviera" because of the area's large population of Irish descent. According to epodunk.com, the 2000 U.S. census revealed that Spring Lake was the community with the highest percentage of Irish descendants in the United States. This is no spiritual coincidence. As we have said before, Ireland is deeply related to the green horse of the Apocalypse. The word "Riviera" in "Irish Riviera" speaks of the mighty revival river that was to flow in America after she had welcomed God's green-horse riders. Unfortunately, America was hostile to God's green-horse visitation in 2005. Figuratively speaking, those with the green-horse anointing were left to die on their own, with no one within the American Church willing to enable them or embrace their message. Because of this, the whale appeared dead in America's "Irish Riviera" in April 2006. The whale died on its own as it arrived on Spring Lake's shores, and it was unable to enjoy "spring" season in America.

 

Interestingly enough, Spring Lake is only 0.73% Hispanic according to the 2000 U.S. Census. This is an amazing fact when you consider that the 2000 Census showed New Jersey to be over 13% Hispanic (according to wikipedia.org, the 2000 Census indicated that 12.31% of New Jersey's population over the age of 5 speak Spanish at home). As we have said before, Hispanics (most of them illegal) have been infiltrating places in America such as Minnesota that would generally be considered as "white" strongholds, so it is amazing that Spring Lake has remained so non-Hispanic, even when surrounded by such a Hispanically-influenced state. As we said above, Spring Lake is the most "Irish" place in America, which means that it represents a place of green-horse manifestation. Therefore, the amazingly low percentage of Hispanics in Spring Lake reveals that God's green-horse manifestation in America required a place that was not influenced by the spiritual contamination from Latin America. Unfortunately, the Latin American influence in America was too strong, and God's green-horse remnant were unable to take refuge in America, and they did not live to see an "Irish spring".

 

Spring Lake is in Monmouth County, and, as we shared before, the name "Monmouth" is spiritually related to the year 1968, the year of the famous "Prague Spring" in Czechoslovakia. As indicated on wikipedia.org, the Prague Spring was a brief 7.5-month period of democratic awakening in the midst of a long period of Soviet oppression. For some 230 days, Czechoslovakia experimented with freedom of the press, a more capitalist economy, and a multi-party democratic system. All of this ended with a brutal invasion by the Soviet army that made sure that Czechoslovakia would stop breathing the air of freedom. After the Prague Spring, Czechoslovakia returned to the long Siberian winter of Soviet oppression. In the same way, satan was quick to suppress the manifestation of spiritual freedom and revival that was coming upon America in 2005. What was supposed to snowball into a mighty work of the Lord was nipped in the bud, and America was unable to remain in the ethan spring that God had for her.

 

Spring is the season when seeds hidden in the winter blossom into manifest life. A beautiful rose was supposed to blossom from the bitter winter of America's pastoral matriarchy, but America passed up on her opportunity in 2005, and, just like 1968's Czechoslovakia, the remnant spirit (and America herself) was forced to return to its dark spiritual winter.

 

Spring remnant expelled

According to wikipedia.org, the city of Prague was, during the 17th century, the largest community of Ashkenazic Jews in the world, and the 2nd largest Jewish community in Europe after Thessaloniki; at that time, 30% of the city's population was Jewish. In the middle of the 18th century, however, Maria Theresa of Austria expelled the Jews from Prague, allowing the Jews to return 3 years later, in 1748. The name "Maria" points to the matriarchal spirit of Mary that continues to rule the American Church. The name "Theresa" points to the humanitarian "Theresa" spirit that emphasises worthless works of "charity" that are fomented by human mercy, a mercy that focuses on earthly needs and ignores God's judgements; "Theresa-style" works focus on satisfying temporal needs and ignore man's need to grow as a spiritual being through transforming judgements. "Austria", on the other hand, points to a Canaanite-Amorite frog influence that promotes "tolerance" and "human unity" and suppresses "divisive" judgements that actually work to unite us to God's Spirit. Thus, Maria Theresa of Austria's ousting of the Jews from Prague in 1745 is a figure of how the soul-oriented American Church ousted God's green-horse remnant in 2005. Whilst she was busy performing her humanitarian works of xmas-style "charity" and promoting "lotus-style" soul peace, she raised up a barrier of bitter hatred against the "terminator" green-horse spirit of God that came to obliterate the matriarchy of the soul and to initiate an era of Spirit dominion in America.

 

The 3-year banning of the Jewish people from Prague is confirmation of something that the Lord spoke into my heart 2 days before the date of this writing (November 18, 2007): 3 years after the cold reception of 2005, the green-horse remnant spirit will be allowed in America's midst in 2008, setting the stage for America's spiritual restoration, which will begin after the end of the 4-year delay on May 11, 2009. In the meantime, however, America shall be sent into the fullness of a depressing winter, just as the spring-bringing remnant were sent into a depressing spiritual winter in 2005. As the remnant remain in their "Fort-Wayne" bubble, turbulence shall strike America head on.

 

As we said above, the only community with a greater number of Jews than Prague prior to the 1745 exile was the Greek city of Thessaloniki. This is no spiritual coincidence. A close study of Paul's epistles to the Thessalonians reveals that they are the epistles most directly related to awaiting God's green-horse visitation, and they are the epistles that most explicitly talk about the rapture and the Lord's parousia. Whilst the frog-influenced American Church continues waiting for the Rapture Spacecraft to beam them up from all her troubles, God's green-horse visitation has come and gone. Because the American Church does not understand what the Rapture and our "gathering in the air with Him" (2 Thessalonians 2:1, Hebrews 10:25) is all about, she remains in the dark about God's purposes for her. The epistles to the Thessalonians were about to be unveiled before America's eyes in 2005. But, instead of being a Thessaloniki to the remnant "Jews" (Revelation 3:9), America became a Prague that expelled them by orders of the religious "Maria-Theresa-of-Austria" spirit.

 

The Joseph spirit of 1848

As we said above, Jews were expelled from Prague in 1745 by Maria Theresa and allowed back in 1748. As indicated on www.prague.cz, things improved for Jews under the reign of Joseph II (Maria Theresa's eldest son). Unlike other kings who saw their kingship as an opportunity to take from their subjects, Joseph II was a proponent of enlightened absolutism, which emphasised the king's responsibilities to improve the lives of those under his rule; enlightened absolutism promoted the equality of all people and growth through education. Thus, Joseph II believed that a king should take his position as an opportunity to give rather than take.

 

Even though conditions for Jews in Prague were improving under Joseph II, they remained confined to the Jewish ghetto and were not allowed to move anywhere else. In 1848, however, the gates of the ghetto were opened, and Jews were allowed to move about with freedom; 2 years later, in 1850, the Jewish Quarter was named "Josefov" (in honour of Joseph II) and was officially incorporated into the city of Prague.

The fact that the Jewish ghetto gates were opened in 1848 is no spiritual coincidence. The year 1848 was a turbulent year of revolutions throughout Europe (the 19th-century equivalent of the year 1968). These revolutions were spurred by a sudden desire to break free from monarchical and elitist oppression. Interestingly enough, the European Revolutions of 1848 are known in some countries as the "Spring of Nations". As indicated on www.ohiou.edu, major upheavals broke out in Prague in 1848; the protestors demanded constitutional reforms and fairer working conditions, but the freedom movement was brutally suppressed in June of that year.

 

All of this reveals that there was a spirit of freedom breaking out in 1848 as people began questioning the assumption that men are divided into castes and that certain men have a right to oppress and lord it over other men. These are the assumptions that the "Spring spirit" came to topple. Spring is a figure of resurrection after a winter of death, which is what happens to green-horse riders as they escape from the grips of Death and Sheol. However, as was the case with the "spring" protestors of 1848, God's green-horse riders in America were unable to see the spring of their resurrection in 2006. Like the Monmouth whale, they appeared dead on arrival on America's beaches as the spring of 2006 came around. Instead of being life after death, America's "spring" turned into the prolonging of a dark spiritual winter in which ministers continue lording it over the Church; these ministers (and those under them) continue believing that not all men are created equal and they are not interested in a Church in which the God-potential of all believers is actively fostered. The arrival of America's true spring was therefore delayed. Just as Prague's Jewish Quarter gates were opened in 1848, a mighty door of green-spring opportunity was opened for America in 2005, but America failed to cross the threshold. Just like Prague's Jewish Quarter had to wait 2 years after the gates were opened to be officially incorporated into Prague, America's spring-green remnant will have to wait 2 years until the process of their incorporation into America's spirit realm gets under way ... in the spring of 2008.

 

{We also recommend that you read about the things that happened in 1848 at wikipedia.org}

 

It is no spiritual coincidence that Prague's Jewish Quarter was named "Josefov" 2 years after its gates were opened. The name "Josefov" points to how Joseph was forced to wait 2 years after the door of opportunity for his liberation had opened. This delay was caused by the indifference of those who had been assigned to help him in his liberation. The Joseph spring spirit of 1848 showed up in the American Church in 2005, but it was forced to wait, for America was too half-hearted to fully welcome God's terminator green-horse Joseph. The tithe that God required was left unpaid.

 

Spring civil war

America's half-heartedness made it (Perizzitely) incapable and (Hivitely) unwilling to fully welcome green-horse Joseph, which led to God declaring civil war over America's spiritual atmosphere. This is the reason why the whale was found on the 22nd of April, 2006 (since the number "22" points to civil war).

 

As we shared in the previous post, the Monmouth whale is spiritually tied to the year 1968, which is the year when a B-52 Stratofortress plane carrying 4 hydrogen bombs crashed in Greenland, some 7 miles south of the Thule Air Force Base. Some websites indicate that the crash happened on January 21, whilst others (such as biocrawler.com) say that it happened on January 22. This ambiguity may be caused by either time-zone differences or a delay in the crash becoming known, given that Thule (now known as Qaanaaq) is such a remote place. Whichever the date may be, the fact that the number "22" is related to this incident's date is no spiritual coincidence. The Lord tried to make a "green-horse landing" in America in 2005, but America did not provide friendly ground for Him to land in. He was forced to endure additional suffering that was originally unnecessary, which is represented by the number "52" in "B-52"; because of this, America sealed her 4-year delay, which is represented by the 4 hydrogen bombs that were lost in the crash.

 

Because of America's waviness, the green-horse remnant were not welcomed into America, and the spring of green hope that God had for her became a spring in which civil war was consolidated and decreed to last until 2009. The literal American Civil War began in the spring (of 1861, on April 12) and ended in the spring (of 1865, on April 9). The spiritual American Civil War began in the spring (of 2005) and shall end in the spring (of 2009). The literal Civil War began with minor battles in various territories and a few states, but the first major battle of the war happened in the spring of 1862; the Battle of Shiloh (also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing) was fought on April 6 and 7 of 1862 and was the costliest battle in U.S. history (in terms of lives) up to that time. This battle was a major test for General Ulysses Grant, not only because of the battle itself but because of the major unfair criticism from the Northern press that he endured after the battle, despite the fact that he won. Just as the literal Civil War took a year to "get going", the spiritual Civil War took a year to "get going". It began in the spring of 2005, but it went into full force in the spring of 2006.

 

It is interesting to consider that the literal Civil War began and ended in April and that its first major battle happened in April, since the Monmouth whale appeared in April as well. April is the 4th month of the year, which once again points to the 4-year revival delay decreed by God on America.

 

As you may have noticed, the Monmouth whale was sent by God to point those with an ear to hear to the years 1848 and 1968, both of which were very turbulent years, years of intensified internal strife (i.e.- "civil war") in many countries, years in which many struggles for freedom were unfruitful. Through His remnant, the Lord is waging a spiritual battle inside the American Church, forcing her to understand and accept principles that her institutionalised little brain is unable and unwilling to assimilate. The battle has been "unfruitful" so far, and it seems as if the "uncle Thomas" American Church has gained the upper hand over God's remnant, just as the Confederate forces seemed to have the upper hand over Grant's forces on the first day of the battle of Shiloh. Yet, the battle is not over, and God's purposes shall be fulfilled. Despite the initial setbacks, God's remnant shall be manifested in the American Church, and the latter rain of righteousness shall fall over the land of Samuel.

 

"19And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. 20And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD. 21And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD." (1 Samuel 3:19-21)

 

Monnow

As we said in the previous post, the name "Monmouth" means "mouth of Monnow" and is a reference to the river Monnow. As indicated on wikipedia.org, Monnow flows through southwest Herefordshire, England and eastern Monmouthshire, Wales, marking much of the border between England and Wales. The word "Monnow" literally means "swift water" in Welsh, which points to the following passage:

 

"But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream" (Amos 5:24)

 

Thus, the name "Monnow" speaks of the latter rain of righteousness during which God's Glory shall engulf the Earth:

 

"Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it." (Isaiah 45:8)

 

"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14)

 

"As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake." (Ezekiel 1:28)

 

Interestingly enough, the river Monnow is 42 kms. (26 miles) long, which happens to be the distance of a marathon. As indicated on wikipedia.org, the distance of the marathon event varied in the first few Olympics, and its official distance was eventually set to the distance established in the 1908 London Olympics. The year 1908 is 2 years after the year of the Pentecostal outbreak at Azusa Street in America (which began in the spring of 1906, on April 14). This points to the 2-year waiting period mentioned above, and it points to the spiritual connexion between the door for revival in America and the UK. As we have said before, the revival delay in America has forced God to "stow away" His remnant spirit in Britannia's spirit realm.

 

Marathons point to endurance, which, in turn, points to the apostolic ministry. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the official distance for marathons was set to the distance established in London, since the UK has a strong apostolic endowment, and, as we have said before, the apostolic endowment is an endowment of judgements. God's latter rain, God's "Monnow" river, cannot come without an impartation of judgements. That is the reason why He has chosen Britannia to safeguard His remnant spirit, for His remnant must establish truth on Earth, and truth cannot be established without a focus on redemptive judgements. God's river is a righteous river, and those who simply want a river of blessings and gooey, "feel-good love" cannot be used by God to promulgate His Glory across the Earth.

 

In order to forge the uncontainable flow of God's River across the Earth, you must have a spirit of endurance that stands by truth and judgements regardless of the obstacles and staunch resistance against them (Romans 1:17-19). You must be willing to believe that God's deep love and His judgements are not contradictory, despite the stubborn determination of a Canaanite, matriarchal Church and world that claim that judgements are of the devil and that judgements do not bring true restoration. Because of this resistance, you must be willing to endure agonising delays that will try to drown your impetus for judgements and your demand to all nations to define themselves either for God's Spirit or against Him. In a sincere quest to see God's potential developed in all people, you will at times be the only one willing to unleash the spiritual judgements required for that potential to shine forth. Though your judgements may be grounded in love ... love for God and love for your neighbour ... the Church and the world will see them as contrary to the nature of a "good Christian", and they will do everything in their power to get you to relinquish making those judgements. A "mouth of Monnow", i.e.- a mouth of swift water, must also be a mouth that shoots forth judgement fire (Revelation 11:5). Let those who can accept this do so.
