Questions & Answers

The spirit warehouse

First posted: December 7, 2006

 

Question

During a personal prophecy, it was said that the Spirit of Jeremiah was coming upon me. I have heard at one time or another most names from the Old or New Testament, where the name was being activated as a Spirit coming upon someone or the Anointing of the historical person coming upon someone. Is there a difference between a spirit of Jeremiah and an anointing of Jeremiah? If we receive the word into our lives, what should our expectancy be to walk under the 'spirit of Jeremiah'? What exactly is being imparted?

 

 

Answer

A spiritual mouthful

In order to understand the issue of spirit impartation, we must first meditate on the following passage:

 

"9And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. 10And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so. 11And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces. 13He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan; 14And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over. 15And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him." (2 Kings 2:9-15)

 

The word "portion" in the phrase "double portion" (v9) was translated from the Hebrew word peh, which literally means "mouth". This shows that there is a connection between the "mouth" and the "release of spirits" into the Earth, as emphasised by the Lord in the following passages:

 

"22And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. 23Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee." (1 Kings 22:22-23)

 

"22Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, 23Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with him, and let him go up." (2 Chronicles 36:22-23)

[Notice how the word of the Lord spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah triggered a spiritual "stir", even after Jeremiah had long passed away]

 

"Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul" (Job 7:11)

 

"How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?" (Job 8:2)

[Even though the words by Bildad against Job were inherently misguided, this verse, spoken by him, does reflect a spiritual principle. The word "wind" at the end of the verse was translated from the Hebrew word ruach, which is the word used for "spirit" in Hebrew (and is translated as such in the other verses quoted above). Therefore, Bildad understood that the issuing forth of words from the mouth releases spirits into the atmosphere.]

 

"15There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate. 16Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them. 17And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein." (Isaiah 34:15-17)

[Notice how Isaiah declares that his mouth has "commanded it" and that God's Spirit has "gathered them" (v16). As you allow the Spirit to speak through you, regardless of the price, you become the conduit of God's Spirit operations on Earth.]

 

"As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seedís seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever." (Isaiah 59:21)

[Notice how, when the Spirit comes upon you, it causes your mouth to issue words in accordance with the Spirit that has come upon you. This is how the Spirit is released into the Earth. Man's carnal soul, which wants to maintain its matriarchal control of the Earth, constantly fights to prevent the words of the Spirit being issued from the mouth of God's remnant, for those words release the Spirit into the atmosphere. In a place where both the Spirit and the soul are in the air, the Spirit will doubtlessly prevail, for the Spirit is inherently stronger than the soul.]

 

"And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming" (2 Thessalonians 2:8)

 

From all of the above, we can conclude that the coming of a "spirit" upon you leads to words being issued from your mouth, words that release the nature of that spirit upon the Earth. Therefore, those with the "spirit of Elijah" shall have "Elijah-style" words issuing from their mouths. Those with the "spirit of Jeremiah" shall have "Jeremiah-style" words issuing from their mouths, and, as those words are issued, the workings of that spirit on Earth are completed.

 

Declaring full-blown civil war

In 2 Kings 2:9-15 quoted above, Elisha rent his clothes in two pieces after he saw Elijah "no more" (v12). This is a prophetic figure of Elijah's separation from the realm of natural understanding and behaviour. Just as Elijah had physically departed the natural realm, Elisha was now departing from the natural realm in his heart. As he took on the spirit of Elijah, he was to sever himself from the limitations of the natural, and he was to move in a new spiritual dimension, a dimension in which you do not act as others act, or think as others think. This is the reason why Elisha "supranaturally" split the waters of the river Jordan immediately after the spirit of Elijah came upon him, for he was now acting in a "supranatural" dimension. This is also the reason why the Holy Spirit recorded the following words:

 

"16And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the LORD hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send. 17And when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men; and they sought three days, but found him not. 18And when they came again to him, (for he tarried at Jericho,) he said unto them, Did I not say unto you, Go not?" (2 Kings 2:16-18)

 

Notice how the sons of the prophets were operating at a more natural level of understanding. They did believe that the Spirit of the Lord could "take up" a person and transport him elsewhere, but they were unable to visualise the Spirit transporting a person completely out of this natural sphere. Elisha's understanding, on the other hand, did comprehend this. This shows that Elisha was thinking at a level of understanding that reached into the "supranatural". This was possible because he had wilfully "rent" himself from the natural thinking and behaviour of the former man.

 

Once you "rend your own clothes", you initiate a civil war in the natural realm. Why? Because you are establishing a trend of thought and behaviour that runs contrary to all that natural man thinks or does. You can no longer walk with those who walk in the natural or think like those who think in the natural. This is the reason why Scripture declares that Elisha "tarried at Jericho" (v18) as the sons of the prophets looked for the physical Elijah. He could not feel comfortable walking with them whilst they chose to walk in their natural understanding. A rift is created in the fabric of mankind whenever a man or woman chooses to operate in God's "supranatural" dimension.

 

{As I was writing the words above, the Spirit prompted me to think of a word that went beyond "supernatural", and the word that was birthed in my heart was "supranatural". The Lord then prompted me to do a search on the Internet to determine the difference between the words "supernatural" and "supranatural", which led us to find an interesting article on mama.indstate.edu, along with an interesting paragraph on bartleby.com}

 

The word "clothes" in 2 Kings 2:12 was translated from the Hebrew word beged. As we have shared before, this is the word used in Isaiah 64:6 when referring to "clothes of menstruation" (translated as "filthy rags" in the King James Version). In Scripture, "menstruation" refers to the spiritual contamination that enveloped man as he allowed the soul to lord it over the spirit. Therefore, Elisha's rending of his clothes is a prophetic figure of his rejection of anything related to the matriarchy of the soul. You cannot move in the realm of the "supranatural" until your heart chooses to make an uncompromising rejection of the soul matriarchy, repudiating anything tainted with that matriarchy as you would a garment tainted with menstruation blood.

 

The Hebrew word beged (mentioned above) is derived from the word bagad meaning "to act treacherously, deceitfully". As we have studied before, bagad speaks of believers who say "Yes" to God and walk with Him for a while, only to back down at the end when "push comes to shove". These are the believers who walk with God across the black-horse wilderness, only to betray Jesus when it comes time to cross the green-horse river Jordan. This is the reason why Elisha had to rend his bagad garments before he could cross the Jordan. Those who shall cross the Jordan are those who shall suffer deep betrayal and apathetic forsaking (Psalm 22:1) from those who were called to enable them.

 

"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?" (Psalm 22:1)

[God removes His direct help from us to test the hearts of men, to see if they will step in to help His remnant. A few may step in to soothe some of the temporal injuries caused by the attacks against you, but no one will step in to help you fight against the true roots of the attacks (Isaiah 63:5). These few will be willing to semi-help you in dealing with the consequences of the attacks, but not with the roots.]

 

"19But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 21Save me from the lionís mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns." (Psalm 22:19-21)

[As man proves himself unwilling to fully and truly help God's remnant in their time of need, God Himself shall step in and redeem them, for they are His "Lazarus"]

 

Fatherly accumulation

After Elisha received a double portion of the spirit of Elijah, he took the mantle of Elijah and parted the river Jordan with it, just as Elijah had done earlier (2 Kings 2:8). Elijah did this at the end of his walk, and Elisha did it at the beginning of his walk in the spirit of Elijah. In other words, Elisha did not have to literally go through everything that Elijah had gone through in order to do what Elijah had done. Elijah's mantle had within it the accumulation of all the spiritual work that Elijah had forged. Once Elisha's heart aligned itself with the spiritual parameters that had directed Elijah's life, Elisha automatically inherited the "spiritual mileage" that Elijah had accumulated. This means that Elisha was enabled to multiply what Elijah had done, working towards completing the spiritual projects started through Elijah.

 

A "spiritual father" travails in the Spirit, forging a path that can be continued by the sons and daughters who come after him or her. True fathers are those who selflessly give themselves for their children and who have no problems with seeing their children being more successful than they were, even when their children achieve that greater success without making the sacrifices that they themselves made. This is the reason why the Lord correlates fatherhood with Elijah-type spiritual impartation:

 

"4Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4:4-6)

 

Notice how verse 4 above speaks of God's judgments. As we have shared before, a person who rejects God's corrective judgments automatically prevents God acting as a Father in his or her life (Hebrews 12:6-8). This means that, in order for you to receive a spiritual impartation from a "spiritual father", you must be willing to accept the judgments that have directed that father's life. This principle always applies, even in the cases of "negative" impartations. If you are willing to accept the unrighteous judgments of a potential father figure, you will open yourself up for a destructive spiritual impartation from that person. That is the reason why satan also has children (John 8:44, which in reality is John 8:32).

 

As shown by 2 Kings 2:1-8, Elijah did not want Elisha to follow him before he departed. In other words, Elijah's judgment was "Elisha should stay behind and allow me to depart alone". Elisha, however, rejected that judgment 3 times. He did so because he knew that that judgment was not from God; Elisha knew that it came from the soul of a man who grew elitist over the latter part of his life and who forgot his calling to beget children who would carry his spirit (1 Kings 19:3, 15-17). This is the reason why Elisha swore on the soul of Elijah that he would not leave him alone (2 Kings 2:2,4,6). Elisha was willing to accept the judgments of Elijah that came from God, but he rejected the judgments that came from Elijah the carnal man. This allowed him to receive a non-contaminated impartation from Elijah, and it allowed him to walk in green-horse territory that Elijah had been unwilling to walk in. He built on Elijah's work without falling victim to Elijah's flaws.

 

Faith-full sons and daughters

In Romans 10, the Spirit of God declares the following:

 

"8But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." (Romans 10:8-10)

 

Notice how verse 8 speaks of "words " in one's "mouth", which correlates with what we shared above. The word "believe" in verse 9 was translated from the Greek verb pisteuo, which is the verb form of the word pistis, meaning "faith"; "coincidentally" pistis is the word translated as "faith" at the end of verse 8. Therefore, we can say that "faith" is, in essence, the act of believing. According to verse 9, you "believe" in your "heart", meaning that the heart is the seat of faith. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34), meaning that as the heart places its faith on something, the "words of faith" referred to in verse 8 begin to issue from the mouth, and these words will carry the spirit of that in which we have believed.

 

The word "confession" in verse 10 was translated from the Greek word homologeo, which is derived from the prefix homos meaning "the same, akin" and logos meaning "word". As we have shared before, the word logos speaks of judgment in Scripture. Therefore, faith means the willingness to align your judgments to the judgments made by another person. As your heart does this, your mouth will begin to issue words that are akin to the other person's words.

 

All of the above certifies the fact that the key to spiritual impartation is faith. Once your heart aligns itself with (i.e.- confesses) the parameters (i.e.- judgments) that directed the other person's life, you begin to operate in the other person's "spirit", and you will be able to build on the other person's spiritual work. This is what happens when we become full-fledged sons and daughters of Abraham. As we are willing to walk in the judgment system that directed Abraham's life (Genesis 18:16-19), as we are willing to "see the invisible" as Abraham did (Genesis 12:1-2, John 8:56 (which in reality is John 8:44)), and as we are willing to sacrifice the dearest in our heart unto God (Genesis 22:1-14), we become Abraham's children and we are allowed to build on all the spiritual foundation his life left behind.

 

"6Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham." (Galatians 3:6-9)

 

 

"8We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesusí sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12So then death worketh in us, but life in you. 13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak" (2 Corinthians 4:8-13)

[The phrase "I believed, and therefore have I spoken" (v13) is a popular phrase used by many preachers to promote the "claiming" of temporal blessings such as cars and job promotions. Notice, however, that this phrase is spoken in a context that has nothing to do with temporal blessings. Paul speaks of being distressed, perplexed, persecuted, cast down, and bearing death in his body. Does this sound as if Paul was using his faith to claim temporal blessings? Those who have the "spirit of faith" (v13) understand that true spiritual impartation leads to a life whose scope extends beyond banal concerns.]

 

As we have said before, the heart is the seat of decision-making (Ephesians 6:6). Therefore, faith involves nothing more (and nothing less) than the drafting of a spiritual contract in which you decide to align yourself with a certain judgment system. This is how spiritual impartation happens. This is how you become a son.

 

The word "Christ" means "anointed one". Interestingly enough, the word "son" and "Christ" appear together in 35 verses of the New Testament, starting with the first verse of the New Testament:

 

"The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham" (Matthew 1:1)

 

"And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God" (Matthew 16:16)

 

"The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God" (Mark 1:1)

 

"And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God" (Acts 9:20)

 

"Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ" (Galatians 4:7)

 

"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son" (1 John 2:22)

[If you contrast this verse with Malachi 4:5 quoted above, it becomes evident that the antichrist spirit opposes the spirit of Elijah. The antichrist spirit denies the existence of "sons of God" on Earth. It rises up against anyone who claims that the nature of God circulates in his or her veins. It violently attacks anyone who claims to speak with the authority of God Himself (1 Thessalonians 4:16).]

 

"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son" (2 John 1:9)

 

Since being a "son" is a result of spiritual impartation, we can conclude from the above that the "anointing" and spiritual impartation" are equivalent. When the Spirit comes over you and anoints you (Isaiah 61:1), you begin to speak words according to the Spirit (Acts 2:2-3). These words are the evidence that the Spirit that came over you has begotten a "son" in your heart (Luke 1:35). As the Father speaks, the Son speaks (John 8:28, John 15:15).

 

The spirit of Jeremiah

The following New Testament passage makes a reference to Jeremiah:

 

"13When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." (Matthew 16:13-16)

 

Notice that some thought that Jesus was "Elijah", whilst others thought that He was "Jeremiah" (v14). According to Malachi 4:5, the spirit of Elijah was to come before the great and dreadful day of the Lord; therefore, it would be "understandable" (humanly speaking) that people would think that Jesus was Elijah. But why "Jeremiah"? The fact that God recorded this passage in Scripture means that there is a spiritual connection between Jeremiah and the coming of the Lord. Just as the spirit of Elijah is to be manifested before the coming of the Lord, so is the spirit of Jeremiah. The book of Jeremiah has 52 chapters; yet, the last verse of chapter 51 says the following:

 

"And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah." (Jeremiah 51:64)

 

If the "words of Jeremiah" end in chapter 51, why does the book of Jeremiah have a chapter 52? Because it speaks of a "temporary silence" that is to be ended by others. In other words, the spirit of Jeremiah's work was left incomplete after the passing of the literal Jeremiah, but that work shall be completed by those who follow after him, which is represented by chapter 52. After a moment of silence, Jeremiah's work, started over 2600 years ago, is to be completed by those of you who are willing to take on the spirit of Jeremiah.

 

Jeremiah was a conflictive man, a man who could not leave "well enough" alone, which led to a life of much lamentation, isolation, and depression:

 

"Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet every one of them doth curse me" (Jeremiah 15:10)

 

"15O LORD, thou knowest: remember me, and visit me, and revenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy longsuffering: know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke. 16Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts. 17I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation." (Jeremiah 15:15-17)

 

"7O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me. 8For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily. 9Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. 10For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him. 11But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten. 12But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause. 13Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers." (Jeremiah 20:7-13)

 

"14Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed. 15Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad. 16And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide; 17Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me. 18Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?" (Jeremiah 20:14-18)

 

Notice how Jeremiah's life was filled with shame and reproach from those around him. Notice also how Jeremiah constantly cried out to God for revenge. In order for the spirit of Jeremiah to be on you, you must be willing to accept the parameters that ruled Jeremiah's life. He was not a promoter of false "peace and love" (Jeremiah 8:11). He was not your typical "Christian minister" with a "sedated" smile that oozed "grandpa santa-claus" kindness and harmony. He was a man of violent words, words of indictment, words of confrontation against all those around him. He hated to be like that. As you got to know him, you would realise that he was a man of deep compassion and sensitivity, but, every time he tried to quell the conflictive words within him, the hand of God would grow heavy upon him, and he would be wearied into pronouncing those words again, for those words were in his bones; they were an undeniable manifestation of his spiritual essence; to deny those words was to deny who he was, for the nature of God was within him (Jeremiah 20:7-8).

 

A "lovey-dovey" believer cannot have the spirit of Jeremiah on his or her life. It would be too intolerable for his or her soul. The parameters which directed Jeremiah's life would seem too drastic, too extremist, too insensitive to be "of God". There would be no faith in that believer's heart that would allow the spirit of Jeremiah to be harboured in that soul. Faith requires confessing the same set of judgments, and a "lovey-dovey" heart would be too tainted with menstrual mercy to serve as a host and conduit for the spirit-of-Jeremiah's judgments on Earth.

 

The violence of silence

As shown by the verse above, the "words of Jeremiah" end with an uncompromising declaration that Babylon shall sink, never to rise again from the evil that God shall bring upon her. As we have said before, Babylon often represents the pastoral matriarchy in Scripture. Therefore, Jeremiah enters into a "zone of silence" after determinedly declaring the future silencing of Babylon. Those who are willing to take on the spirit of Jeremiah shall also enter into this "zone of silence". After a bitter life filled with controversy, those with the Jeremiah spirit are "killed", but not before releasing an uncompromising scream that foretells the end of the forces that killed them (Matthew 27:50). Once they are killed, their "annoying" rebukes are heard no more, and a deceitful silence filled with whispered lamentations begins to fill the air.

 

"12They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. 13But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. 14Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. 15For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. 16For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. 17For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me." (Psalm 38:12-17)

 

The word "ready" in verse 17 was translated from the Hebrew word kuwn, which literally means "to be firm, stable, established" or "to prepare", whilst the word "halt" was translated from the Hebrew word tsela meaning "limping, stumbling". Therefore, the original Hebrew text in verse 17 says, "For I am established to be limping...". In a negative sense, "limping" or "lameness" points to the Perizzite spirit of shame that "shrinks" people's self-esteem, making them permanently dependent on and subservient to Amorite giants. Thus, the phrase "I am established to be limping" in verse 17 means that God will compel His remnant believers to appear "Perizzite weak". Because of their low self-esteem and the systematic bashing of the Amorite-Jebusite-Girgashite machinery, Perizzites are sheepishly "dumb" (i.e.- mute) by default. Therefore, verse 17 above is declaring that God's remnant shall be compelled into an apparent "sheepish silence" after a long period of speaking with unadulterated boldness. This "silence of the lambs" shall come after they are systematically "killed". Yet, in their silence, they will release inaudible, infrasonic screams. These 5th-seal screams clamouring for judgment and vindication shall agitate the deepest parts of the Earth, setting the stage for a massive 6th-seal earthquake that shall topple the Amorites who had apparently succeeded in silencing God's remnant (Revelation 6:12-17).

 

It is no coincidence that the deaths of Alexander Litvinenko and Anna Politkovskaya have been in the news as the Lord has had us typing this article. As indicated on bbc.co.uk, Alexander Litvinenko was a former Russian security officer who died on 23 November 2006 in a London hospital due to radioactive polonium-210 that was somehow "introduced" in his body. Litvinenko was a fierce critic of that cursed bear, Vladimir Putin, and was forced into exile in the UK due to his non-compromising determination to loudly denounce corruption in the Russian government. He suddenly fell ill on 1 November, 2006, and did not live to see December because Vladimir Putin, that treacherous bastard, aligned himself with the spirit that utters December whispers of treachery. "Coincidentally", New-York-born journalist Anna Politkovskaya died 47 days before Litvinenko, on 7 October 2006. She was cowardly shot to death in the elevator of her apartment building. As indicated on bbc.co.uk, Politkovskaya was a courageous journalist who regularly investigated and reported the many abuses in the Putin-led Russian government, despite the over-bearing pressures put on Russia's media to "submit and conform". In a period of 47 days, these 2 megaphones have been silenced. The massive attack by satan to silence God's Tannoys during this last trimester of 2006 has led to a surge of infrasonic waves that are currently rumbling in the underground. These silent subterranean whispers are accumulating a vial of violent wrath that is soon to break forth, for God's voice cannot be silenced, no matter how hard man may try to do so. The more His voice is suppressed, the more violent His silence becomes. The more His voice is sent underground, the louder the effect of the ensuing tremor.
