Questions & Answers

Wayne's world

First posted: May 8, 2006

 

Question

{This question came in on January 27, 2006, the same day that the "Brittany" word was posted. Throughout this word, we will be referring to the visitor who sent this question as "Ms. A.W."}

 

... I am of Jewish lineage, probably the tribe of Benjamin, my dad being named Joseph.

Question: What's up with Indiana? What is the significance of Ft. Wayne? [What is the significance of] Jefferson Pointe ([which has] swanky new trendy malls, quite unique for Indiana)? [There is a place there] called "Preston Pointe Inverness". I'm sure every detail is prophetic, but I can't put it together.

 

{... Other parts of this e-mail emphasize the number "69", the word "dribble", the date "April 8th", and the name "Madeleine"}

Any thoughts?

 

Answer

Indiana

Ms. A.W. asked about the spiritual significance of "Indiana". To be honest, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the state of Indiana is "Latin America" (LA). Shortly after the Lord told us that Latin America's calling had been taken away (on June 29, 2003), a story came out regarding a young girl who had disappeared in 1986. According to this story, somebody had apparently called in saying that they had found the missing girl (17 years later). The girl's relatives were all excited about the news, but it all turned out to be a huge hoax.

 

This story quickly caught my attention because of the year 1986, which was very significant spiritually in Latin America. The Lord began a spiritual "culmination" project in Latin America in January 1986, a project that would propel Latin America into the latter-rain revival; the project lasted for 17.5 years, until it was terminated in June 2003 because of Latin America's Hivite "overflow". As I look back on the year 1986, I can now see that the Lord was already prophesying to me about what would happen in Latin America, but it took me many years to understand God's prophetic signs. I believe that God leaves those signs as "prophetic bread crumbs" in the past of our paths so that we may be able to look back and realize that God was in control and knew what was going to happen before it happened. In a sense, the spiritual seeds of Latin America's demise were sown ever since 1986, around September of that year, and God gave that region some 16+ years (153 months) to destroy those seeds, but Latin America refused to do so. When the seed eventually produced its unGodly harvest, God officially cast off Latin America (as a region).

 

Besides the 2003 story about the Indiana girl, the name of the state, "Indiana", also betrays a spiritual connection to Latin America. The name points to the native "Indians" in the American continents. Therefore, it points to the native spirits that were instrumental in hindering the covering of Japheth over Latin America. Like a dog that returns to its own vomit, Latin Americans returned to the native spirits that dominated over the indigenous peoples before Columbus's arrival. It tried to serve the God of Israel and its past culture at the same time, and it eventually ended up abhorring God without realizing it.

 

Fort Wayne, Indiana

Having said all of the above, the Lord made me find several interesting things about Fort Wayne, Indiana. Shortly after receiving Ms. A.W.'s email, the Lord sent me to wikipedia.org to find out about the origins of that city. These are some of the interesting things that the Lord led me to find:

 

bullet

The French built the first fort there, called Fort Miamis, in 1697, and it was later replaced by Fort St. Philippe in 1722, some 25 years later. As we have shared before, the number "25" represents the ministers who rejoice in the strength of their grace. Most ministers who reach "25" never make it to "30", which represents the stage where they are aware of their ministerial grace but are also willing to minister unto God and man by exposing their human weakness. The name "Philip" literally means "horse lover", and, when used in a negative sense, it represents those who are enamored with and who revere ministers (i.e.- "horses") because of their "ministerial grace". Therefore, the founding by the French of Fort St. Philippe 25 years after Fort Miamis represents the establishment of a stronghold of "ministerial worship" that emphasizes the importance of religious hierarchy. As we have shared before, the "French" culture is imbued with a spirit of Girgashite hierarchy.

 

bullet

In 1760, 38 years after 1722, the British drove the French out. This is a figure of the apostolic "British" spirit of judgments overcoming America's "Brittany" spirit which we shared about earlier this year. This is a figure of how the American Church was initially receptive to God's message of judgments and was willing to judge its "French" hierarchical ministers. The "38" years points to the awakening of the Israelite people in the desert; after 38 years, the generation of rebellious Israelites died, and God began to use the new Joshua generation to strike down Amorite kings prior to their eventual entry into the Promised Land (Numbers 21:21-35, Deuteronomy 2:14).

 

bullet

In 1763, native Americans took the fort from the British. This is a figure of how the Canaanite Latin American spirit was able to stall America's latter-rain revival after America had reached "year 39".

 

bullet

31 years later, on October 22, 1794, "Mad" Anthony Wayne led U.S. forces and successfully took the fort from the Miamis. A new fort was then built and renamed "Fort Wayne". This is a figure of how the American Church will eventually overcome the Latin American Canaanite influence and manifest God's glory in the latter days. The 31-year period points to the drawn out (and unnecessary) delay in America's revival, a delay that will be ended through a great intercessory sacrifice from the willing few. The date "October 22" points to the number "22" and to the number "10", since October is the 10th month. As we have been sharing recently, the number "22" speaks of the spiritual civil war that God has declared in America, which will lead to tremendous loss of life, both in the spiritual and the natural, until the American Rahab is defeated and the American Church raises the "white flag" of surrender. The number "10" speaks of prophetic sacrifice, and it points to the green horse of the Apocalypse, since green-horse riders are willing to sacrifice themselves to the point of going to Sheol for the sake of others. Once the "Korah"s in the American Church get swallowed up and cease to exist, the American Church will accept the green horse, surrender its pride, and cross the Jordan into the Promised Land.

 

bullet

On February 22, 1840, exactly 544 months after Wayne retook the fort from the Indians, the "City of Fort Wayne" was officially incorporated. The number "544" equals 32 times 17. Because there are 3 "male" ministries and 2 "female" ministries, the number "32" represents the predominance of the "male" ministries over the "female" ministries (since the digit "3" in "32" is in the "tens" position, while the digit "2" is in the "units" position), and the number "17" represents the manifestation of God's prophetic remnant. Therefore, the incorporation of the "City of Fort Wayne" 544 months later (32 times 17) represents the total victory over the pastoral matriarchy and the full-blown manifestation of the prophetic remnant in America. Notice again that the date "February 22" emphasizes the number "22". Since "February" is the 2nd month of the year, the date "February 22" also points to Genesis 2:22 (since Genesis 2 is the 2nd chapter in the Bible). This verse speaks of how God "built" woman and brought her to man, which is a figure of the soul being regenerated by God and surrendering to the Spirit.

 

In short, the history of Fort Wayne is a microcosm of what is happening, and will happen, to America in these latter days. It is no coincidence that the early part of Fort Wayne's history was influenced by the French, considering that Ms. A.W.'s question on Fort Wayne was in response to the "Brittany" word.

 

For nearly a century, Fort Wayne was an important railroad center between New York and Chicago. Before then, it was an important waterway portage, meaning that Fort Wayne was, for a long time, an important transportation hub. This means that Fort Wayne has a "temporary-stop" calling about it. It represents a spiritual fortress, an Adullam cave (1 Samuel 22:1-5), where God's remnant shall temporarily hide while America is judged by God for delaying His work in her. As we have said before, America is in the midst of a 4-year delay in her spiritual transformation, a delay decreed until May 2009. During this time, the "spiritual progress" of America (as a nation) will be on hold, and she will be pounded with difficult events that will bring her to question the essence of her belief system.

 

As we have shared before, Chicago is a stronghold of the pastoral matriarchy in America, and New York is the place designed by God as the starting place of the latter-rain revival in America. Therefore, the fact that Fort Wayne was an important railroad center between Chicago and New York means that "Fort Wayne" represents a temporary holding place for God's faithful remnant in America as America transitions from the pastoral matriarchy (i.e.- "Chicago") to God's New-Covenant shekinah (i.e.- "New York").

 

According to behindthename.com, the name "Wayne" is derived from the Old English word waegn, and it is an occupational surname meaning "wagon maker". Train wagons are temporary "holding places" where passengers sit as they are being transported from one place to another. If a train wagon is traveling in the midst of a dark night, it may seem to the passengers inside as if the wagon is "still" and "going nowhere", especially if the train is one of those modern, silent trains. Therefore, "Fort Wayne" represents a temporary "holding place", a place that is apparently going "nowhere", but is actually on its way to something greater and glorious.

 

"Mad" Anthony Wayne

Historically speaking, "Fort Wayne, Indiana" was named after "Mad" Anthony Wayne, an important military figure in the 18th century. Even though most Americans are not aware of him, he was instrumental in the consolidation of the new American nation. His courageous victory against the British at Stony Point on July 16, 1779 provided an important morale boost for the American army, which had suffered a series of military defeats at the hands of British forces. He also had important victories against the British at West Point and Green Spring in Virginia. He was also instrumental in severing the British alliance with Indian tribes in Georgia, which led to the Indians signing peace treaties with the American Union. After retiring to civilian life, he was recalled to military duty by George Washington in order to help the U.S. in the Northwest Indian War. His victory on August 20, 1794 in the Battle of Fallen Timbers (just south of Toledo, Ohio) was a decisive victory that forced the British to abandon their Northwest Territory forts in the Jay Treaty, which removed the British military support that the Indians had enjoyed. Wayne then negotiated the Treaty of Greenville between the Indians and the U.S., which was signed on August 3, 1795. This treaty was instrumental in the eventual entry of Ohio into the union some 8 years later, in 1803. Ohio was the 17th state admitted into the Union, and the number "17" speaks of a "manifested remnant".

 

The Battle of "Fallen Timbers" points prophetically to Zechariah 11:1-17, which prophesies the obliteration of the pastoral soul matriarchy. Therefore, it points to the appearance of the green horse of the Apocalypse, which comes to obliterate the soul matriarchy.

 

"Mad" Anthony Wayne was born on New Year's Day, 1745, and he died at age 51, on December 15, 1796. This means that he died 1112 days (3 years and 17 days) short of the dawning of the 19th century. The number 1112 equals 139 times 8, which points to Psalm 139:8:

 

"If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there" (Psalm 139:8)

[The word "hell" was translated from the Hebrew word sheol]

 

Notice how this verse speaks of someone descending to rest in Sheol. The number "8" speaks of "regeneration". Therefore, Psalm 139:8 is referring to someone who descends to rest in Sheol as the Earth above is regenerated. As we have shared before, "Abraham's bosom", also known as Paradise, used to be in Sheol (it was the side of Sheol with "air conditioning"). All of God's faithful who died prior to the resurrection of Christ would go to rest in "Abraham's bosom". They all waited until Christ died and ascended. When this happened, all of Paradise was transported up to heaven. Believers remain "imprisoned" in Paradise, even when Paradise is now in heaven. They are the "cloud of witnesses" mentioned in Hebrews 12:1 who are waiting for the manifestation of God's Glory on Earth. They cannot share in the fullness of their eternal inheritance until we begin to share in it too (Hebrews 11:40). In other words, while the Church stubbornly delays the latter-rain revival, those who have already died and gone with the Lord are also forced to wait ... "time after time". "Abraham's bosom", therefore, represents a temporary holding place, a place of refuge, where God's faithful are forced to wait out the delay as the promise is fulfilled.

 

[According to wikipedia.org, the city's total area is 127 kms2. As we have shared before, the number "127" points to Sheol. This once again points to the fact that "Fort Wayne" represents a Paradise, a haven of rest, an Eden, in the midst of (Hittite) purposelessness and (Girgashite) old structures.]

 

From the events in his life, it becomes evident that Anthony Wayne is a figure of a green-horse rider who comes to "seal the deal", to deal the deathblow to "lingering issues". This is what Anthony Wayne did in the war with the British Empire and with the native Indians. His death shortly before the advent of the next century (the 19th) is a figure of those who die and go to Sheol before they can see the fulfillment of the vision they have fought for. The spiritual "Anthony Wayne"s must remain in their havens of rest, inside their "Fort Wayne"s while the job gets finished outside. Anthony Wayne was instrumental, for example, in Ohio's entrance into the Union, yet he had already died by the time it happened.

 

Anthony Wayne was buried at Presque Isle (now Erie) Pennsylvania. The word presque in French literally means "almost". Therefore, it speaks of the green-horse believers to whom the fulfillment of the vision is "so close" that they can almost taste it, but who are forced to die without seeing the vision fulfilled due to the "French" religiosity of others who were more interested in "safe religion" than in the manifestation of God's shekinah Glory. The fact that Anthony Wayne was born on New Year's Day, 1745, is a figure of how God's green-horse riders come to usher in a completely new age in which the old matriarchal structures have been completely obliterated. Unfortunately, many green-horse riders are called to "die" before the dawning of that new age because others around them refuse to fully let go of the past.

 

Anthony Wayne died on his way back from a military post in Detroit. This correlates with what the Lord had us share about "Detroit" in the "Brittany" posting. America turned into a spiritual Detroit, a land of "dire straits" for the prophetic remnant, a land where they were not supported and enabled, and were therefore forced to die a "premature" death, because America preferred to harbor the "prematurely born" Ammonites.

 

Anthony Wayne is like an Elisha, a man fully under the green-horse anointing who was completely willing to see God's process through, but who had people around him that were half-hearted and were not fully committed to God's plan. This is the reason why the "Anthony Wayne"s are forced to die without seeing the vision fulfilled; they are forced to go through a P.M. (post-mortem) wait in "Fort Wayne" as the "obstacles of reluctance" are removed. Shortly before dying, Elisha gave a prophetic word to the king of Israel about victory against the Arameans (i.e.- the Syrians), but the king was only interested in "winning", not in an obliterating green-horse victory (2 Kings 13:19). When Elisha died (prematurely), he had to die with the vision inside of him. This is the reason why his bones remained with a mighty anointing, even as they remained buried. Since the vision had to be fulfilled, Elisha's bones were destined to come out from their "Sheol burial". This is the reason why they reappear the following year:

 

"20And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year. 21And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet." (2 Kings 13:20-21)

[The phrase "stood up on his feet" at the end of verse 21 represents the rising of the mighty army of "young warriors" that refused to rise up while Elisha was still alive. This is the mighty and "irreverent" green-horse army that rises up to drive the Philistines out of the land (i.e.- the Church). Due to the spirit of "ministerial reverence", this army was reluctant to "get the job done" while "Elisha" was still alive.]

 

This passage insinuates that Elisha died towards the end of the year, which correlates with Mad Anthony Wayne's death towards the end of the 18th century. Interestingly enough, Mad Anthony Wayne was disinterred in 1809; they boiled his body to remove the remaining flesh, and he was relocated to his family's plot in St. David's Episcopal Church Cemetery in Radnor, Pennsylvania. This family plot speaks of an "inheritance", and the name "David", which means "beloved", speaks of the prophetic remnant that has found grace in the eyes of God. Therefore, Anthony Wayne's relocation is a figure of how those who die with the promise of inheritance shall see their promise fulfilled, even after their "deaths" (whether literal or spiritual), because they have found grace in the eyes of the Lord. The "Episcopal" Church is the "Church of England". Once again, this speaks of a spiritual connection between the modern-day Elishas and the UK.

 

According to a legend, many of Anthony Wayne's bones were lost along the roadway that encompasses much of modern-day PA-322. The legend adds that the "ghost" wanders the highway searching for his lost bones. This is a figure of how the Elishas who lie in their Sheol beds have left a haunting atmosphere in the air, an atmosphere of spiritual restlessness in which God's vindicating vengeance will be unleashed. That vindicating vengeance will clear the obstacles that prevented the "Anthony Wayne"s from seeing the promise fulfilled before dying and going to Sheol.

 

Despite the fact that most American teenagers in High School would have no clue as to who Anthony Wayne was, his silent influence on the American nation was so real that many, many cities, counties, towns, communities, rivers, businesses, schools, and structures are named after him throughout America, especially in the states of Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. You can see a sample list on wikipedia.org.

 

Radnor

As we said above, Anthony Wayne's bones were eventually relocated to Radnor, Pennsylvania, a town named after Radnorshire, Wales (according to wikipedia.org). Radnorshire's highest point is "Radnor Forest". According to wikipedia.org, "Radnor Forest" is not a forest in the sense of being a heavily wooded area; instead it is a "forest" in the medieval sense, being an unenclosed area used for hunting. Therefore, "Radnor Forest" points to the Benjamin who acts like a prey-devouring wolf (Genesis 49:27).

 

There is a local legend in Radnor that says that the last Welsh Dragon lies asleep deep in Radnor Forest; the legend also says that the people of Radnor built 4 churches in a circle around the forest. These churches were dedicated to St. Michael, the conqueror of the dragon (Revelation 12:7-9), to make sure the "dragon" does not escape. Many believe that, if any of these churches is destroyed, the dragon will awake and ravage the countryside once again. Even though this may sound like just another meaningless legend, this legend hides a spiritual principle regarding the name "Radnor". In their mystical awareness, the Celtic people of Wales understood that the name "Radnor Forest" was spiritually related with the "sleeping" of a spiritual giant, a spiritual "behemoth" who can be quite devastating when woken. The "Wayne"s who are buried in Radnor are spiritual giants who are made to sleep temporarily. Because of their green-horse anointing, Wayne becomes a conduit for great vindictive wrath even as they "sleep" in Radnor.

 

The monster in the legend demanded that all 4 churches remain in place. If any of the 4 churches were to be missing, the monster would ravage the countryside. Just like the monster in the legend, the spiritual "Wayne"s demand "full acquiescence" and "complete surrender" --- unto God. God's green-horse riders are not willing to compromise on a half-hearted solution. To them, it is all or nothing.

 

The fact that "Radnor Forest" is the highest point in Radnorshire speaks of the "high place of refuge" where Wayne rests as vindicating "civil war" breaks out "below".

 

Army raising

The following facts reveal an interesting trait about the name "Wayne":

bullet

At the onset of the American Revolutionary War in 1775, Anthony Wayne immediately raised a militia to fight the British.

bullet

According to wikipedia.org, one of Wayne's many legacies was that he was the first one to attempt providing formalized basic training for regular Army recruits.

bullet

Fort Wayne, Detroit, served as a training base for Michigan volunteers during the Civil War, and it served as an induction center in the Korean War (and early in the Vietnam War).

 

All of this reveals the connection between the name "Wayne" and "army raising". As we have shared before, the black horse comes to slay Goliath, and the green horse comes to raise an army of volunteer believers who will drive the Philistines out of God's land. These believers are "young ones" (neos) with a buccaneer spirit who have no reverence for human hierarchy or renown. At the time of the American Revolutionary War, the British Empire was the most powerful empire in the world. Yet, a group of young and inexperienced soldiers did not "stand in awe" of them, and they eventually won their Independence. During the American Civil War, citizens from the relatively new state of Michigan (which had been in the Union for less than 30 years), were willing to defy the self-righteous Southern states who had been part of the American nation way before Michigan and who had long-standing traditions they could be "proud of".

 

Because of the connection between "Wayne" and "army raising", we can once again see the spiritual connection between the name "Wayne" and the green horse.

 

4 Days & a seal

According to wikipedia.org, a local joke among some inhabitants of Fort Wayne, Indiana, is with regard to the fact that Anthony Wayne only stayed in Fort Wayne for 4 days before leaving. This once again points to the city's calling as a "temporary holding place" for the "Wayne"s.

 

The "4 days" of Wayne's stay in Fort Wayne point to the 4-year delay in America's revival. They also point to the following passage:

 

"34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. 35Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. 36And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 37And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours." (John 4:34-38)

 

As we have said before, God's green-horse riders are "green reapers" who come to reap the harvest. Each of the months mentioned by the Lord in verse 35 represents each of the 4 horses of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8). The green horse is the 4th horse that appears. Once he appears, the harvest must be gathered, and those who oppose the reaping of that harvest at that time shall be hardly dealt with.

 

The 4 horses are unleashed as the first 4 "seals" of the Apocalypse are loosed. The other 3 seals (Revelation 6:9-8:1) are triggered by (and are intimately linked to) the loosing of the 4th seal (the green horse). In other words, it is as if the last 4 seals (seals 4, 5, 6, and 7) were all enveloped in the galloping of the green horse. The last 4 seals are like one great seal. In a sense, you could view the 7 seals as "4 seals":

  1. Seal #1: the white horse

  2. Seal #2: the red horse

  3. Seal #3: the black horse

  4. The Green Seal: the green horse plus seals 5, 6, and 7

 

Seal #5 speaks of the "haven of rest" given to the green-horse "Wayne"s who were "prematurely killed":

 

"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)

[I once heard a well-meaning (but never-maturing) young pastor condemn the attitude of these souls because they clamored for revenge. This foolish condemnation conveniently overlooks the following truths:

  1. These souls were "slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held" (v9), meaning that they were faithful believers who were willing to die rather than betray God; they were not believers ruled by the flesh.

  2. They were already "dead", meaning that they were already free from the "Law of sin and death" which can operate in our bodily members (Romans 7:23). In other words, their "death" refers to a state where you, as a believer, are no longer subject to the lusts of the flesh. It refers to a state where you are "dead to the flesh" but "alive in Him" (Galatians 2:20).

  3. They refer to God as "holy and true" (v10), which emphasizes their awareness that God does not tolerate unrighteousness standing before Him (1 Samuel 6:20).

  4. God does not reprimand these believers for their "fleshly request for vengeance". Instead, He honors them with "white robes" (v11), which are given to those who are complete in Him and who are clothed in Him (2 Corinthians 5:1-11). Those who arrogantly make "flesh requests" (Numbers 11:4-6) before God are not given "white robes"; instead, they are ensnared and destroyed by God (Numbers 11:31-34).

As we have said before, Scripture reveals that restoration is preceded by revenge (Isaiah 61:2); those who reject the "day of revenge" are rejecting God's restoration, and those who reject God's restoration shall suffer in the devastating revenge their "pastoral" souls so vehemently reject. In the valley of decision, those who are not fully with Him are against Him. 75% and 66.6% hotness just will not do!!!

 

I had the chance to interact with this well-meaning young pastor for a short season, and, during that time, he showed an utter admiration for his congregation's "head pastor". This shows the following irony: while this youth pastor would have never dared say anything negative about the "head pastor", he had no qualms about condemning righteous souls who were portrayed in Scripture as being worthy of God's white robes. This reveals the hypocrisy of "ministerial reverence": Those who have a visible robe of authority and approval from man are revered unto death, but those with an invisible robe of authority and approval from God are reviled and mistreated, even in their death. Ministerial reverence is hypocritical reverence that downplays the spiritual and exalts the earthly.

 

All legitimate authority comes from God (Romans 13:1). Any "authority" (in any realm) that cannot be eventually traced back to God is pseudo-authority. As spirit beings endowed with the Holy Spirit, we are given the responsibility of determining whether or not the "robes of authority" standing before us really have an invisible spiritual line that leads back to God. When Yeshua stood before Pilate, He recognized Pilate's authority because He saw the "invisible line" that traced back to God (John 19:10-11 --- the word "power" in the King James translation was mistranslated from the Greek word exousia, which literally means "authority, jurisdiction"). On the other hand, when Yeshua stood before the high priest, He dared to question the validity of the high priest's words because He did not see the "invisible line" in his words (John 18:19-21). Let him who has ears hear what true authority really is.

 

As shown by Luke 20:1-8, the line of authority that leads back to God is invisible in nature. If you long to submit to True Authority, God will lovingly reveal to you who is operating in True Authority (and who is not) at any given time. You will be able to see the invisible line" when it is there, and you will be able to discern when that "invisible line" is not there, even if you see a "visible" robe of authority standing before you.]

 

Notice how these righteous souls clamor unto God for vindicating revenge (v10), which, as we have seen before, correlates with the green horse of the Apocalypse. Their "how long" question (v10) and God's approval of them (as shown by the white robes - v11) reveals that these souls share in God's frustration over man's constant delaying of His will. Instead of condemning them for their frustration or their desire for vindication, God says to them:

Rest, My green-horse souls, in the haven I have set for you in the midst of this Sheol purposelessness. I have prepared an Abraham's bosom where you shall rest as the cup of My wrath is filled. I shall then pour that cup in unrelenting vengeance upon your enemies, for those who have opposed you have opposed Me, and they shall know that I have loved you and that I, Adonai, am Lord.

 

While Seal #5 points to the spiritual "Fort Wayne"s where God's green-horse riders will rest, seal #6 speaks of the devastation caused outside "Fort Wayne" as God's vindicating revenge (requested by God's people during the 5th seal) is unleashed. While God's green-horse riders' souls will "physically" reside in "Fort Wayne", their spirits will be roaming the Earth executing green-horse judgment.

 

April 8

In her email to us, Ms. A.W. mentioned the date "April 8". As some of you may know, that date is famous in American baseball history as the date when Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's career homerun record. Babe Ruth's record of 714 had stood for decades. During 1973, however, Hank Aaron edged closer and closer to Ruth's mark, and the 1973 season ended with Aaron at 713 homeruns, 1 shy of tying the record.

 

Hank Aaron was forced to endure the pressure of the media that followed his every move during 1973. Because Aaron is black, the pressure he experienced was made even worse by the racist hate mail he received, which threatened to kill him if he "dared" to break a "white man's record". Since he ended the 1973 season without breaking the record, Aaron was forced to endure the agony of a long off-season under the threatening cloud of Cain and under the media spotlight.

 

At the start of the 1974 season, on April 4, he hit a homerun, which tied him with Ruth at 714. On April 8, while playing in Atlanta, he hit the long-awaited 715th homerun that finally broke Ruth's long-standing record. Therefore, Ms. A.W.'s mention of "April 8" speaks of a prophetic green-horse remnant that has been forced to end the "1973 season" without seeing the fulfillment of the vision. As they spend their off-season in "Fort Wayne", they wait for the "1974 season" to come. Ms. A.W.'s mention of "April 8" is a prophetic promise from the God of Israel that the 1974 season will come, and that the latter-rain vision shall be fulfilled.

 

Benjamin

Ms. A.W. shared that she is probably from the tribe of Benjamin and that her father's name is Joseph. The name "Benjamin" means "son of the right hand", which points to the following Scripture:

 

"1The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 5The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head." (Psalm 110:1-7)

 

Notice how the LORD says to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand", which speaks of an attitude of "waiting" while God tears down his enemies and humiliates them before him. While the remnant waits in the green pastures of "Fort Wayne", God will unleash His vengeance upon the enemies who pounced on the remnant to kill him (verses 6 and 7).

 

The reference to Melchizedek in verse 4 correlates with what the Lord has recently had us sharing. God's green-horse riders are willing to tithe with their own lives; they have been willing to die and go to Sheol as a redeeming price that unleashes restoration in the spirit realm. These green-horse riders are operating in the true Melchizedek priesthood.

 

As we shared in the "Brittany" word, the Lord spoke to our hearts that the UK is a spiritual "Benjamin". Benjamin was the smallest of all of Israel's sons. Based on Psalm 110, therefore, the name "Benjamin" speaks of a small one who shall inherit after a mighty vengeance against his enemies is unleashed. This is the reason why Israel said the following about Benjamin:

 

"Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil." (Genesis 49:27)

 

The word "ravin" was translated from the Hebrew word taraph, which literally means "to tear in pieces". Genesis 49:27 is the 3rd verse in Scripture where taraph appears; the first two verses are Genesis 37:33 and Genesis 44:28:

 

"And he knew it, and said it is my sonís coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces" (Genesis 37:33)

 

"24And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father; we told him the words of my lord. 25And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food. 26And we said, we cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the manís face, except our youngest brother be with us. 27And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me two sons: 28And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since: 29And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my grey hairs with sorrow to the grave." (Genesis 44:24-29)

[The word "grave" was translated from the Hebrew word "Sheol"]

 

Notice how the first 2 appearances in Scripture of the word taraph are in the context of what Joseph's brothers did to Joseph. Notice also how the passage in Genesis 44 associates taraph to "descending to Sheol with sorrow". Joseph and Benjamin were the only sons of Israel who were born of Rachel. Prior to Benjamin's birth, Joseph was the youngest brother. Benjamin was born while Joseph was going through his Sheol experience in Egypt. As Benjamin grew up in the loving shelter of his father's care, Joseph was eventually vindicated and exalted in Egypt. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the word taraph is used in the context of both Joseph and Benjamin in Genesis 44.

 

From all of this, we can safely say that Genesis 49:27 speaks of vindicating revenge. The evil (the taraph) done to Joseph shall be repaid as Benjamin waits. Through the "waiting Benjamin" who "holds fast" in "Fort Wayne", God shall unleash His vindicating vengeance against the enemies of Joseph, and he shall cause them to bow before him and recognize that God was indeed with him (Genesis 37:9-11, Revelation 3:9-11).

 

The word "wolf" in Genesis 49:27 was translated from the Hebrew word zeeb, which is derived from a Hebrew word meaning "yellow". This points to the apparently "delicate" yellow flowers in the "New York Tornado" dream that we posted one year ago, on April 17, 2005. God's green-horse riders serve as delicate "yellow flowers" that lure the enemy into attacking them. Their attack shall then unleash God's obliterating judgment against His enemies.

 

The word "morning" in Genesis 49:27 was translated from the Hebrew word boqer, which can be translated as "break of day", and is derived from the word baqar meaning "to seek, enquire". In Scripture, the word baqar appears in 7 verses (Leviticus 13:36, Leviticus 27:33, 2 Kings 16:15, Psalm 27:4, Proverbs 20:25, Ezekiel 34:11, Ezekiel 34:12), and it is always used to refer to someone who "inspects" something to declare a judgment in wisdom. Therefore, the word "morning" in Genesis 49:27 points to the Sun of Righteousness that rises to inspect the Earth and make judgments. As Benjamin is manifested on Earth, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise and execute vengeance judgment that devours the enemy the way a consuming fire devours fallen timbers:

 

"1For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts." (Malachi 4:1-3)

 

The word "prey" in Genesis 49:27 was translated from the Hebrew word ad, which has the connotation of something you have "locked your target on" in order to attack it and destroy it. The word has the connotation of a relentless pursuit of the victim. It speaks of not resting until the victim is destroyed. Therefore, the word "prey" in Genesis 49:27 points to the relentless and all-consuming nature of God's vengeance as the spirit of the "waiting Benjamin" is manifested on Earth.

 

Genesis 49:27 declares that "at night, [Benjamin] shall divide the spoil". After the Philistines are pursued and obliterated (i.e.- after justice has been fulfilled), the fiery wrath of the Sun of Righteousness shall end, and the refreshing evening will come, at which time Benjamin will divide the spoil among God's people (1 Samuel 17:52-53, Malachi 4:2-3). Unlike communist revolutionaries who topple dictators to become dictators themselves, Benjamin shall propagate "prophetic communism" throughout the Body of Christ. All believers will be made aware of their equal spiritual value before God, and the wealth of God's spiritual inheritance shall be made openly available to all. These will be the days of the latter-rain revival, the days of the greatest manifestation of God's shekinah Glory in the history of mankind, the days which will mark the passing of an "Old Age" (Matthew 24:34) and the dawning of a "New Age".

 

In each of the first 2 verses where the word taraph appears (Genesis 37:33 and Genesis 44:28, quoted above), the word taraph is repeated twice (for emphasis) in the Hebrew text. This is the reason why the King James translators inserted the phrases "without doubt" and "surely" before the phrase "rent (torn) in pieces". This dual repetition of taraph points to the 2-witness anointing once again. "Coincidentally", the word taraph appears in 22 verses of Scripture, which once again points to "spiritual civil war", since the number "22" speaks of "civil war".

 

According to wikipedia.org, Anthony Wayne was educated as a surveyor at his uncle's private academy in Philadelphia. From there, he was sent by Benjamin Franklin and some associates to work for a year surveying land they owned in Nova Scotia. The fact that a "Benjamin" (Benjamin Franklin) sent him to survey land in Nova Scotia is no "coincidence". The name "Nova Scotia" means "New Scotland". This speaks of God's spiritual project to turn America into a spiritual "UK", a land of apostolic justice and judgments. As we have said before, Scotland itself is endowed with a black-horse anointing, which means that it is a land of apostle-prophets. God sent His spiritual "Waynes" to survey the American landscape, a landscape that had many good black-horse qualities and which needed to be surveyed before it could enter into the fullness of the next stage, the green-horse stage. However, God's surveyors (i.e.- His green reapers) found a land steeped in "Latinized" and "French" religiosity, rather than a land of "British" judgments, and God's project had to be delayed for 4 years.

 

69

Fort Wayne Indiana straddles Interstate 69. "Coincidentally", Ms. A.W. mentioned the number "69" in her email. All of this points to Psalm 69:

 

"1Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. 2I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. 3I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God. 4They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away. 5O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee. 6Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel. 7Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face. 8I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my motherís children. 9For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me. 10When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach. 11I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them. 12They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards." (Psalm 69:1-12)

 

Notice how this Psalm speaks of someone trapped in Sheol despair and who has been betrayed, abandoned, and reviled by his brethren (just like green-horse Joseph). According to verse 9, the spiritual "Waynes" are sent to Sheol because of the "zeal of God's house" which consumes them, a zeal that is deplorable to Wayne's brethren. When "Wayne" is trapped in Sheol, he has no choice but to hope upon the mercy of God to deliver him out of the despairs of Sheol.

 

The number "69" also points to the following passage:

 

"24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (Daniel 9:24-27)

 

Notice how verse 26 speaks of the Messiah being "cut off, but not for himself" after "69" weeks (7 + 62). The word "Messiah" literally means "Anointed One", and the "anointing" is most directly related to "green olives" (Zechariah 4:14) and the prophetic ministry. Therefore, this passage is speaking of the green-horse Waynes who have been forced to die a premature death due to the hard-heartedness of others (not themselves). The passage above speaks of the anointed one dying 1 week short of the fulfillment of the "70 weeks", which refers to the period of restoration of God's people (Daniel 9:1-3) from Old-Testament structures. This passage applies to the Lord Yeshua, but it also applies to any believer who takes his cross and follows Yeshua to Golgotha.

 

Notice also that, during the 69 weeks, restoration will be done, but not without hardship (v25 - "the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times"). After 69 weeks, however, the anointed one will be cut off, which will lead to "a flood" and a "war" with "determined desolations" (v26). This once again points to the spiritual civil war that comes after the "Wayne"s die prematurely, and it points to the defeat that God's green-horse riders must admit while the beast revels in apparent victory (Revelation 11:7-10).

 

The word "wall" in verse 25 was translated from the Hebrew word charuwts. This word can be translated as "trench, moat, ditch", but it can also be translated as "sharp-pointed" or "strict decision". In other words, charuwts has the connotation of someone who digs a trench and says, "The line is drawn here! Enough is enough! This is the end of the line for iniquity!!!". This is the reason why charuwts appears in the following passage, translated as "decision":

 

"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 3:13-14)

 

God's green-horse riders are "green reapers"; they are "determined exterminators" who come to demand the harvest promised to God. They come to bring "definition" and "decision". It is because of their uncompromising attitude that they are killed prematurely, but they leave a "moat" behind. Upon dying, that very moat serves as their "Fort Wayne", their "haven of rest" while God's vindicating vengeance is unleashed upon the enemies who abhorred them. No wonder there is a dry moat surrounding Fort Wayne in Detroit. No wonder, also, that the wikipedia.org article on "England" includes the following quote from the play "Richard II" by William Shakespeare:

 

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,

This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,

This other Eden, demi-paradise,

This fortress built by Nature for herself

Against infection and the hand of war,

This happy breed of men, this little world,

This precious stone set in the silver sea,

Which serves it in the office of a wall

Or as a moat defensive to a house,

Against the envy of less happier lands,ó

This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

 

[William Shakespeare's "Richard II", Act 2, Scene 1]

 

The UK has a "Fort Wayne", a "moat" anointing about it. This anointing has kept it shielded from many of the negative forces in the rest of Europe. In a spiritual sense, God's "Waynes" are currently resting in the UK (after 69 weeks), and, from there, a mighty move of God shall emerge, a move that will complete the 70 weeks and the restoration of God's people.

 

Fort Wayne, Detroit

Another "Fort Wayne" in the US is Fort Wayne, Detroit, which was the 3rd fort built in Detroit. It was built in the 19th century, between 1844 and 1847. According to wikipedia.org, this fort was used as a training base for Michigan volunteers during the American Civil War. Fort Wayne in Detroit is occasionally used now to host historic re-enactments, usually of the Civil War. This again shows the connection between the name "Wayne" and the spiritual civil wars that follow after the premature deaths of God's green-horse riders.

 

Fort Wayne in Detroit is also used to host cross-border rugby matches. Since rugby is popular in the UK and the British Commonwealth, this reveals the spiritual connection between the name "Wayne" and spiritual "Britishness". According to wikipedia.org, "rugby union" is dominated by 8 countries: France, Australia, England, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, Wales, and Scotland. Of these 8 countries, 4 are in the "British Isles" and 3 others are members of the British Commonwealth.

[The fact that the remaining country is France reveals that there is a spiritual "Britishness" hidden in France. Despite its current spiritual obstacles, France's "Britishness" shall shine forth in the latter days. A spiritual enlightenment of judgments and creativity shall shine forth from France in the latter days, and the French shall most definitely behold the Glory of God.]

 

Deadly deadlock

Some 29 days after Ms. A.W.'s e-mail, an interesting story was posted on the Internet (available on abcnews.go.com). According to this AP report, Bill and Peggy Maki of Fort Wayne, Indiana, found two dead 12-point bucks on February 11 during a walk in the woods. These deer had died in a pond after their antlers locked during combat. Their horns were locked, and they stumbled down to the pond; the ice then broke because of their combined weight, and they drowned in the cold water. This "curious" story is no spiritual coincidence. It is a figure of the spiritual civil war that God will engage America in. One buck represents the anti-remnant segment in the American Church, and the other buck represents the "semi-remnant" segment (i.e.- the believers who were receptive to many things of the remnant spirit but who were too cautious to go all the way with God). A house divided shall not stand, says the Lord, and He will cause the half-hot, half-cold buck to be dragged down by the all-cold buck into the cold waters to perish there. Why? Because the spiritual "Wayne"s have pushed the American Church (and the world, in general) into the "valley of decision". The half-hot will have to decide if they will be all-hot or all-cold. Those who do not decide to be all-hot shall be dragged down to perish as "all-cold", despite any previous "hot" deeds:

 

"24But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. 25Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?" (Ezekiel 18:24-25)

 

The fact that the bucks were found by people of Fort Wayne is prophetic confirmation that the spiritual "locking of horns" (i.e.- civil war) will happen at the spiritual prompting (or triggering) of the remnant that hides in "Fort Wayne". As that remnant hides in the haven of refuge, the zeal of vengeance in their hearts will unleash these things upon those who chose to remain outside, just as it happened with Noah and the ark.

 

Jefferson Pointe

In her question, Ms. A.W. asked about "Jefferson Pointe". The name "Jefferson" means "son of Jeffrey". The name "Jeffrey" is a variation of the name "Geoffrey", which is an Old French form of a Germanic name. According to behindthename.com, the second part of "Geoffrey" comes from the German word frid meaning "peace". The first part of "Geoffrey" may come from either of the following words:

bullet

gawia, meaning "territory"

bullet

gisil, meaning "hostage"

bullet

god, meaning "God"

Therefore, "Geoffrey" could mean "peace territory", "peace hostage", or "peace of God". All of these possible meanings of the name "Jeffrey" indicate that "Jefferson Pointe" represents a "haven of peace" in the midst of the "Civil War" that has broken out over America in the spirit realm. This haven of peace will be a place of refuge where God's remnant will remain "hostage" while "spiritual violence" breaks out across America. In this haven, God's remnant will be endowed with a heavy impartation of the Spirit of Prosperity --- the Spirit of Laodicea, the 7th Spirit of God. As we have studied before, this Spirit comes upon God's green-horse riders because of their spirit of gratefulness and their willingness to tithe unto God with their very lives. The Spirit of Prosperity is the spirit of shalom peace. Under that spirit, we begin to enter into the 7th-day Rest of God. "Jefferson Pointe", therefore, represents the house of Obed-edom where the Ark of the Covenant was kept while David and the people of Jerusalem got their spiritual act together (2 Samuel 6:11).

 

On April 20, 2006, by "coincidence" (as I was searching for the file where I had saved the meaning of the name "Jefferson"), I learned that Jefferson County is only one of 7 counties in Alabama (out of 67 counties) with what is known as "home rule". The other 60 counties in Alabama have to lobby to the Local Legislation Committee of the state legislature to get simple policies such as waste disposal and land use zoning (we found this at wikipedia.org). This means that "Jefferson County" is one of only 7 "haven" counties not gripped by the Old-Covenant structure of permanent intermediaries. As we shared before, the American Church has a strong "Alabama" element to it, an element bent on preserving the Old-Covenant religious structures and preventing the manifestation of New-Covenant freedom where the religious system is removed from between the believer and God (2 Corinthians 3:17-18). "Jefferson Pointe", therefore, represents a haven of New-Covenant freedom in the midst of Old-Covenant stubbornness. This is emphasized by what Ms. A.W. said about "Jefferson Pointe", which she described as an area with "swanky, new, trendy malls, quite unique for Indiana". Spiritually speaking, Fort Wayne is a "UK haven" in the midst of "Latin American" Indiana; it is a place for "Mad" Anthony Wayne, who is a visionary in the midst of others who did not fully share his vision.

 

As we said above, the "Jeffer" in "Jeffer-son" can be translated as "peace of God"; the "son" part in "Jeffer-son", therefore, points to the following passage:

 

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God" (Matthew 5:9)

 

The word "children" in the verse above was mistranslated from the Greek word huios, which literally means "son". This is the word used in Greek when referring to Yeshua as the "Son of God". Therefore, the verse above really says that the peacemakers shall be called "sons of God". As we have shared before, James 3:13-18 reveals that the true "peacemakers" are those whose works of righteousness and judgments make the people around them adapt their wills to the will of God. Through judgments, true peace between God and man is wrought (Isaiah 32:15-17). As judgments work repentance, forgiveness from God becomes possible, which then leads to true peace with God (2 Corinthians 7:8-11, Luke 17:3, Isaiah 57:15).

 

The "Jeffer-sons" who believe in the "peace of God" that is ironically wrought through judgments and a zeal for vengeance shall be called "sons of God":

 

"For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter." (2 Corinthians 7:11)

 

Preston

In her e-mail, Ms. A.W. mentions a place called "Preston Pointe Inverness". According to behindthename.com, the name "Preston" comes from an Old English phrase meaning "priest town". This emphasizes the connection between Jefferson Pointe and the Spirit of Prosperity. To enter into the fullness of the Spirit of Laodicea, we must learn to distinguish between Melchizedek priests and Aaronic priests. Those who recognize the Melchizedek priesthood (and tithe to it) shall be blessed. Those who go after the visible Aaronic priesthood and tithe to it (literally and spiritually) remain under the curse and limitations of the Old Covenant, and cannot enter into the 7th-day rest of the Lord (God willing, we will be posting an article on this in the near future).

 

The name "Preston" points to a whole town of priests. We are "a royal priesthood, a holy nation" (1 Peter 2:9), and we are priests after the order of Melchizedek, not the order of Aaron. While the rest of America remains under the Aaronic priesthood (and its "minister"-"layman" separation), there will be a remnant of New-Covenant believers who will take refuge at "Preston", thereby conforming a "priest town" who will minister in their Melchizedek priesthood.

 

"Coincidentally", as I was looking for the meaning of "Preston", the Lord led me to find an article on wikipedia.org about the city of Preston in England. Preston is a city in North West England (there is spiritual significance to it being in the North West --- for it represents a transition point from "north" to "west", i.e.- from "ministerial elitism" to "universal ministry"). Preston was granted the status of city, recently, some 4 years ago, in 2002, thereby becoming England's 50th city in the 50th year of Queen Elizabeth's reign. As we have shared before, the number "50" speaks of "Pentecost" and the "outpouring of the Spirit". Therefore, the name "Preston" points to the latter-rain revival. The fact that Preston is in England also points to how the UK shall become a haven for God's remnant spirit while America gets its act together. Out of the UK, the latter-rain revival will flow into continental Europe, impacting Italy, Germany, and Eastern Europe, with the west of Europe (France, Spain, and Portugal) impacted later on. Unbeknownst to most believers in America, something is happening in the spirit realm in the UK and Europe, and it shall be fully manifested over the next 6+ years, leading up to the London 2012 Olympics, which had originally been assigned by God to New York; to God's dismay, New York was only half-interested in His offer.

 

According to wikipedia.org, the Preston by-pass (opened on December 5, 1958) was the first stretch of motorway in the UK. This once again points to how the UK will be the starting point of the "revival motorway" that will spread across all of Europe and into many nations of the globe.

 

Karl Marx (who was a prophet gone awry) visited Preston once, and he called it "the next St. Petersburg". This reveals that there is a strong prophetic mantle over the name "Preston" (and over the geographical region of Preston itself). As we have shared before, the prophetic anointing is strongly related to "spiritual communism". Under the New Covenant, we all participate in the prophetic anointing. There is no distinction between "great" and "small" (Jeremiah 31:31-34). Just as in "economic communism", believers under the New Covenant are all "made equal", and all "caste" privileges are removed (obviously, the human implementation of "communism" hypocritically and surreptitiously re-establishes castes in the name of so-called "equality").

 

Inverness

"Inverness" is one of the 6 cities in Scotland, and, out of the 6, it is the only city in the Scottish Highlands. In that sense, therefore, the name "Inverness" is a figure of a high tower, a high place of refuge for God's prophetic remnant. Since the number "5" points to "ministerial grace", the fact that there are 5 cities in the Scottish Lowlands is a figure of those who are comfortable in "low" spiritual places as they take cover under the dead but humanly recognized ministers. Ironically, the only ones who can escape from the 5 "lowlands" cities and up to the 1 "highlands" city are those who are willing to be taken to the lowest point in the form of Sheol experiences:

 

"13Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death: 14That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation." (Psalm 9:13-14)

 

"5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD." (Psalm 27:5-6)

 

"1Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. 2From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. 4I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah." (Psalm 61:1-4)

 

According to wikipedia.org, the literal city of Inverness was given "city status" by the Queen very recently, in December 2000, and it officially celebrated its city status in March 2001. Ever since 2001, the Lord began to awaken our hearts with regard to the UK. Therefore, the fact that Inverness has been a city since 2001 is no spiritual coincidence. Ever since the dawn of the 3rd millennium, something mighty began to happen in the spirit realm over the UK. There has been a silent but gradual opening of the skies over Britain and Ireland. As God was planning to complete His work in America, He was already preparing Europe for an impartation from America. However, since America refused to cooperate with Him, He has continued the construction of the "European high tower" while work on the "American high tower" remains stalled (as has been the case with the Twin Towers in New York).

 

Inverness has recently been labeled the fastest growing city in Western Europe. This is a prophetic figure of the fact that the Lord is raising up new spiritual cities of "Inverness" around the world to provide refuge for His remnant. To the spiritual "Inverness" shall flock all those who are looking for a Paradise refuge after their "stay in Sheol".

 

On September 7, 1921, the only UK Cabinet meeting ever held outside London was held in Inverness. This was an emergency meeting called to discuss the situation in Ireland. This meeting produced the "Inverness Formula", which was the basis of the Anglo-Irish Treaty. This emergency Cabinet meeting at Inverness once again points to the temporary holding place in which God's people shall be harbored as God unleashes vengeance upon those who dealt His green-horse riders a premature death.

 

The Anglo-Irish Treaty gave Northern Ireland the option to leave the Irish Free State and rejoin the UK, which it did. As we have said before, Northern Ireland is the constituent country in the UK that represents the green horse. Therefore, it is no coincidence that a treaty formula drafted in Inverness (a refuge for green-horse riders from Sheol) was an important element in Northern Ireland's (and Ireland's) history.

 

Interestingly enough, the Anglo-Irish Treaty led to the Irish Civil War, which was eventually won by the pro-treaty faction in Ireland. This once again reveals the spiritual connection between green-horse riders and the rise of spiritual civil wars after these riders have been taken to their Paradise refuges.

 

Inverness is a sort of "mecca" for bagpipe fanatics. Every September, the city hosts the most prestigious solo piping competition known in the world, which is known as the "Northern Meeting". As we have said before, the song "Wake me up before September ends" is a prophetic expression of how America regressed from "November" (month "11") back to "September" (month "9"). While "September" runs its bitter course, God's green-horse remnant are gathering in "Northern" (i.e.- prophetic) meetings in the spiritual "Fort Wayne"s to play the "bagpipe". In order to play the bagpipe, you must keep its leather bag filled with the air of your breath, and the sound is made as you force the air out through reed pipes by pressing the bag with your elbow. The "reed" speaks of the 2 witnesses (Revelation 11:1-2). The bagpipe, therefore, represents the "launching" of prophetic breath, loaded with judgment pressure, under the 2-witness anointing, which God's black- and green-horse riders are prone to doing.

 

The name "Inverness" comes from a phrase in Scottish Gaelic meaning "mouth (or confluence) of the Ness", since the mouth of the River Ness is at nearby Loch Ness. As you may know, Loch Ness is famous for the "Loch Ness monster". Unbeknownst to most Christians, legends are often distortions of realities in the spirit realm. The name "Inverness", therefore, refers to the authority that emanates out of the mouths of "Wayne"s endowed with the 2-witness anointing (Revelation 11:5). When the 2-witness "Wayne"s are killed prematurely and sent to rest at "Inverness" (or "Loch Ness"), they turn into "Loch Ness monsters" who unleash devastation through the words of revenge that emanate from their mouth.

 

"9Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city. 10Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it. 11Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets. 12For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: 13But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. 14We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. 15Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. 16As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. 17Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. 18He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. 19God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. 20He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant. 21The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. 22Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. 23But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee." (Psalm 55:9-23)

[The words in verse 12-15 point to Judas' betrayal of the Messiah. Notice the phrase "a man mine equal" in verse 13. The Messiah saw His disciples as His "equals" in terms of potential (Luke 6:40). He was willing to expose Himself as a vulnerable human being who was able to operate in the fullness of the Anointing because of His humanity, not because of His divinity. This is the reason why He constantly referred to Himself as the "Son of Man" (Matthew 9:5-7). Jesus constantly challenged His disciples to operate in the power and authority that He operated in, and He never allowed them to hide under the lame "I'm not Jesus" excuse which says the following, "Well, He is Jesus, the Son of God, and I am a poor little sinner saved by grace, so you can't expect me to be like Him!!". Whenever the disciples would hide under that excuse, He would immediately chastise them (Matthew 8:26-27). God spits at those who constantly refuse to see their own potential and the potential of the people around them (Mark 8:22-26).

 

Notice also how the Anointed One prays to God that death seize upon His traitors, and that they "go down quick into Sheol (hell)" (v15). Therefore, this passage points to Korah and to God's green-horse riders. Korah loves to betray God's green-horse riders by taking advantage of their weakness and vulnerability. Since the truly Anointed Ones refuse to use their anointing to lord themselves over others, they become easy targets of the "ppp"s (the "political power players") who see the moments of vulnerability in others as self-promoting opportunities that "simply cannot be passed up". Korah is easily fooled by the weak-looking red exterior of God's green-horse riders, and he fails to see the expansive and obliterating green anointing they carry underneath. Once Korah pierces through their red exterior with his treacherous knife, he rejoices for a while, thinking that he has won, without realizing that he has just produced a breach in that red exterior that serves as an unrestrainable outlet for the devastating green atomic energy hidden underneath.

 

Notice also the comment made by the Anointed One in verse 23: "bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days". This points to the "half-right" nature of the spiritual Korahs. The "Korah" who betrayed Jesus was not an idol-worshipping Roman; he was one of Jesus' 12 closest disciples, which means that the spiritual Korahs are men and women who have sought after God and who do believe in the Anointing; Judas would have never followed Jesus had he not believed in the coming Messiah or "Christ" (the words "Messiah" and "Christ" mean "the Anointed One"). The Korahs rejoice in the "happy" side of the Anointing (the side of "miracles", "power", and "blessings"), but they turn on God when He begins to show them the "dark" side of the Anointing (Matthew 26:12-16), the side where you are called to suffer and die for others precisely because of the Anointing that has been bestowed upon you (Colossians 1:24, 1 Peter 4:13, Psalm 89:38).

 

Voluntary sacrificial death in love is the only porthole into eternal life; that is the "needle's eye" that Jesus referred to in Luke 18:25. The first Adam fell out of eternal life because he rejected that porthole; and, contrary to popular belief, the last Adam did not come to offer an "alternative" porthole into eternal life. Instead, He came to reopen the porthole that had been closed up by the first Adam. As we have said before, "eternal life" in Scripture is more than just "escaping hell damnation". You can escape literal hell and still not enter into eternal life, like the Israelites who escaped Egypt but did not reach the Promised Land. Jesus paid the price so that you might escape Egypt, and you "pay the price in Him" in order to enter eternal life. This "paying the price in Him" is not an issue of human effort; it is a life of yielded submission to His will so that His Life may be manifested through you (Galatians 2:20, Philippians 2:12-13, Colossians 2:11-12). Ironically, those who "pay the price in Him" are those who want to pay the price for others. In other words, you have to become disinterested about yourself in order to be fully redeemed yourself. That is the paradox of salvation.

 

All of the above explains why the Anointed One refers to Korah not living out half of his "days" (v23). When you enter into eternal life, you are made One with the "Ancient of Days" (Daniel 7:22). You get to live out "the fullness of your days" when you enter into eternal life. But, in order to do so, you must first be willing to accept the "dark side" of the Anointing (the side that calls you to suffer and die for others). If you are only interested in the "happy half" of the Anointing, you will not live out "the fullness of your days", even if you do "exist" forever.

 

The phrase in "half of their days" also points out the "radioactive" nature of God's green-horse riders. As you may know, nuclear bombs are built using radioactive material, i.e.- material made up of atoms whose nuclei can be easily broken apart. These "unstable" atoms are known to break apart on their own, even if they are just "sitting there". Therefore, scientists usually measure the "radioactivity" of a material by its "half-life", which is the amount of time required for half of the material to "disappear" on its own. For example, according to wikipedia.org, the half-life of Plutonium-238 is 88 years, meaning that, if you have 1 pound of Plutonium-238 "just sitting there", you will only have half a pound remaining after 88 years, and a quarter of a pound after 176 (=88*2) years. The rest will have automatically disintegrated. This shows how "vulnerable" radioactive materials are. But in that very vulnerability lies their devastating lethality, because their radioactive vulnerability makes them perfect for nuclear bombs. Just as Revelation 12:11 shows, our devastating lethality is made manifest as we make ourselves vulnerable unto death.

 

According to wikipedia.org, uranium was used thousands of years ago in Italy to add a yellow color to ceramic glazes, and "yellowcake" is the name given to uranium concentrate. Modern mills produce a "yellowcake" that is actually dull green to almost black. According to wikipedia.org, plutonium is silvery in pure form, but has a yellow tarnish when oxidized. This connection between "radioactivity" and the color "yellow" is not a spiritual coincidence. As we have said before, the color "yellow" is obtained on computer screens through a combination of red and green at 100% intensity. Therefore, it speaks of clayey, red vulnerability that hides green death and devastation. The "dull green" and "almost black" color of modern yellowcake is no coincidence either. As we have shared before, the black and green horses of the Apocalypse work concurrently to finish off the enemy's champions along with his cursed matriarchal system.

 

According to wikipedia.org, a material's half-life is 69.3147% (the natural logarithm of 2) of what is known as the material's "mean lifetime". This once again points to the number "69", and it points to the 2-witness anointing. The 2 witnesses overcome by making themselves vulnerable unto death before the enemy (Revelation 11:7).]

 

"17For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. 18Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. 19And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. 20For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take." (Acts 1:17-20)

 

Here (in verse 20), Peter is quoting from Psalm 69, which was "coincidentally" mentioned above:

 

"22Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. 23Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake. 24Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them. 25Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents. 26For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded. 27Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness. 28Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous. 29But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high." (Psalm 69:22-29)

 

Psalm 69 is usually taught as a "Messianic psalm", meaning that it is a psalm interpreted as coming directly from Jesus' lips. It is interesting, however, that "unpleasant" words such as the ones above are quickly swept under the rug by today's preachers. Why? Because their version of "Jesus" would never say such nasty things. The apostles who lived with Jesus, however, had no qualms about attributing such words to the Jesus they had walked with for 3 and a half years, and the Holy Spirit had no qualms about attributing those words to Jesus either, as shown by Acts 1:20.

 

Notice that Psalm 69:29 ends with a request to God saying, "...let Your salvation set me up on high". This is a plead from Wayne's heart that appeals to God's mercy, requesting that God place them in the safety of "Radnor Forest" (the highest point in Radnorshire). As that happens, Radnor Forest becomes an "Inverness", a "mouth of Ness" from which emanates words of spiritual vengeance that wreak havoc upon the structures that sent Wayne to his premature death.

 

Ms. A.W.'s email made a reference to the name "Madeleine", which is in turn the French form of "Magdalene". The name "Magdalene" comes from the Hebrew name "Magdala" meaning "tower". This again points to the "Inverness" tower of refuge that God's remnant are currently hiding in.

 

Interestingly enough, Fort Wayne, Indiana, is known as the "Summit City", which speaks of a "gathering point up high" for God's spiritual warriors who have been killed prematurely. Through their disposition to be used by God (and not through any inherent "superiority"), these spiritual warriors have intensified the authority of their spiritual names in the heavenlies. As these unknown but precious warriors gather together in the spiritual "Fort Wayne"s, these places will become "Summit Cities" from which mighty spiritual decrees shall emerge ... decrees that will release mighty judgments into the whole Earth (Psalm 105:7, Daniel 4:17).

 

Red & green

During the 19th century, most of the population growth in Fort Wayne, Indiana, was due to immigration from Germany and Ireland. To understand the spiritual significance behind this, we have to contrast Germany and Ireland on 2 different grounds:

 

bullet

Ferocious war vs. Tranquil peace

In several languages (such as Estonian & Finnish), the name for Germany is derived from the Germanic tribe of the "Saxons". According to wikipedia.org, the word "Saxon" is apparently derived from the word seax, which was used to refer to a variety of single-edged knives; the word "Saxon", therefore, could be interpreted as meaning "swordsman". Many historians consider the Saxons to have been "especially war-like and ferocious". In Revelation 6, the horse that is explicitly related to the "taking away of peace" (i.e.- causing "war and conflict") is the red horse. Therefore, the name "Saxon" portrays a red-horse attitude.

 

Germany's connection to the red horse can be seen on other fronts. As we have shared before, Germany has a strong "teacher-apostle" impartation, which correlates with the red horse, since red-horse riders are, by definition, teacher-apostles who create conflict by challenging the long-established teaching of men through apostolic wisdom from above. Germany's connection to the red horse can also be seen in German Martin Luther, who was used by God as a red-horse pest who provoked the splitting of Christians away from Latin Catholicism. Germany's red-horse nature is also evident in the fact that Germany was the nation most directly involved in kick-starting both World Wars.

 

Some believe that the word "Germany" is derived from the Old Irish word garim meaning "shout", describing the Germans as noisy; this again points to the red horse, since God uses His "red-horse shout" to call His people out of man's structures. Others believe that "Germany" is derived from the word gairm meaning "battle cry", which points to a predisposition to provoke war and conflict.

 

As opposed to the Germans, the Irish are not associated in history with "ferociousness". Instead, when one thinks of Ireland, one thinks of her peaceful and tranquil green pastures, which are fostered by Ireland's perennially mild but varied climate. It can rain at any time of the year, but it is not "ferocious downpours". Instead, the rain is light, and it does not last for long. Even when the Irish have shown an occasional violent streak (as with Sinn Fein and the IRA), it has always been localized violence. Recently, Sinn Fein publicly apologized to the families of collateral victims in several specific terrorist acts they had committed decades ago. Even though these apologies were a long time coming, the fact that they took the time to apologize for the deaths of a "few" people reveals the Irish people's general desire for peace and tranquility. According to wikipedia.org, Ireland's tricolor flag also reflects their desire for peace; the green color on the left supposedly represents the catholic majority, while the orange color on the right (derived from William the Orange, the Protestant king) represents the Protestant minority; the white color in the middle symbolizes peace between catholics and Protestants. There is an international fund-raising organization named "The Ireland Funds", which tries to foster peace between both sides through community development, education, arts, and culture. It is also worth saying that, throughout its long history, Ireland has never declared war on any other nation or people.

 

The coexistence of "ferocious" Germans and "peaceful" Irish in Fort Wayne reveals a spiritual principle. Most believers visualize God as a kindly old grandfather who "loves" his children and wants them all to simply "get along". This passive view of God makes it difficult for believers to understand passages that reveal a fiery God of wrath, even in the New Testament (Luke 12:51-53, Hebrews 11:25-29, Hebrews 6:4-8, Romans 1:17-18, Hebrews 10:30-31, Jude 1:14-15, Ephesians 5:6, Revelation 14:6-20). To most believers, "love" and "judgments" are completely incompatible concepts, and they cannot coexist within the same God. To them, if God "is love", He cannot be a God of "judgments", "vengeance", and "justice". When they are presented with a God who told Joshua to kill every living creature in Jericho (including babies and animals), they quickly put their hands to their eyes and ears and say to themselves, "I didn't hear that; I didn't read that; that mean old God belongs to the Old Testament; our God is a good God; our God is a gooey God; our God gives us candy whenever we ask it of him, because he said, 'Seek and ye shall find; ask and ye shall receive'; yeah ... our God is a good God".

 

On the other hand, God's green-horse riders see no contradiction between God as "Consuming Fire" (Hebrews 12:29) and God as "Love" (1 John 4:8). In fact, they see His Love in the midst of His Fire, and vice versa. Without being schizophrenics, the spiritual "Wayne"s can at one moment offer their very lives as living sacrifices for the sake of others, and, at the next moment, declare destructive judgment over a particular group of people. They can speak of God's mercy at one moment and of God's vengeful wrath the next moment. This apparent "schizophrenia" is evident throughout Scripture:

 

"For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men." (Psalm 21:7-10)

 

"The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies. Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield. For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak. Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah. And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied. But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy." (Psalm 59:10-17)

 

"For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping, Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down. My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass. But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations. Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come." (Psalm 102:9-13)

 

"And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee" (Isaiah 60:10)

 

Under the red-horse anointing, God's red wrath becomes visible in the sky. Under the green-horse anointing, however, the manifestation of God's red wrath becomes multiplied and intensified. Under the green horse that paves the way for peace with God, intense wrath of God is revealed. As the spiritual "Wayne"s rest in "green peace" in their "Fort Wayne"s, the "red vengeance" of God is manifested outside. This ferocious "red vengeance" of "German Wayne" is channeled through the silent but zealous hearts of "Irish Wayne", as he rests in the green pastures of Fort Wayne. Paradoxically, both "German Wayne" and "Irish Wayne" are the same person!

 

While the red horse shouts out a "battle cry" through humble teachings, the green horse shouts out a "battle cry" through resounding prophetic word. In a sense, green-horse "Wayne" is a magnified, vindicated manifestation of red-horse Wayne. Green-horse Wayne comes to exact spiritual revenge upon those who berated little red-horse Wayne.

 

The "red" and "green" nature of Wayne reflects a spiritual paradox: The spiritual "Fort Wayne"s arise because of the "Wayne"s' unwillingness to coexist with others who try to straddle the fence between God and man. Yet, these same "Wayne"s are people who hold "diametrically opposed" views of God that coexist in perfect harmony. While the dichotomy outside Fort Wayne leads to Civil War, the apparent "dichotomy" inside Fort Wayne is really 2 sides of the same coin, 2 views of the same building, 2 manifestations of the same God.

 

By the way, in many Celtic languages, the word for "English" is derived from the word "Saxon" (hence the expression "Anglo-Saxon"). This points to the "British" nature of Fort Wayne mentioned above.

Inclusive vs. exclusive

In many languages, the expression for "Germany" is derived from the word Alemanni, the name of an ancient tribe in eastern France and Switzerland (in French, for example, the word for "Germany" is Allemagne, and, in Welsh, the expression is Yr Almaen). Some believe that Alemanni means "All men", which makes it an "inclusive" term that groups all people under one category. Others believe that Alemanni was actually derived from the Latin word alius, in which case it must mean "alien" or "foreign men", which makes it a term that "excludes" people.

 

The German word for "Germany" is Deutschland. The word deutsch is derived from the Old High German word theodisk, which means "the people's language"; this once again speaks to "inclusiveness". The opposite of theodisk was the word walhisk, which means "foreigner". The modern German word welsch meaning "foreigner" (especially from the South) was derived from walhisk. The English used the word "Welsh" to describe the "foreigners" in the southern part of Britain, and the name stuck. The Welsh and the Irish are strongly related (both genetically and culturally). Therefore, we can say that "Ireland" can be taken in this context to refer to "foreigners" or "strangers", i.e.- to a term that "excludes" people, while "Germany" can be taken to refer to "inclusiveness".

 

The strange combination of "inclusiveness" and "exclusiveness" is present in the spiritual Waynes. On the one hand, they speak of excluding unrighteousness from righteousness, but, on the other hand, they speak of all people having direct access to God. On the one hand, they speak a strange and "alienating" language of the Spirit that is foreign to the soul, but, on the other hand, they say that all have the ability to speak the language of the Spirit. On the one hand, they are "German inclusive", and, on the other hand, they are "Irish exclusive".

 

Dribble

In her email, Ms. A.W. makes a reference to the word "dribble". As I meditated on that word, I felt in my spirit that there was a spiritual message behind it, but I was unable to discern it. A few days ago (on April 23, 2006), I had a "small" setback that threw me into a deep sense of depression and hopelessness. I shared my situation with some brothers and sisters in Christ, and, as I shared my sadness with them, I got the impression that some of them thought that I was overreacting to the small setback. As I listened to myself speak, it also seemed to my natural mind that I was indeed making too much out of nothing. However, as I thought about it, I remained convinced that my reaction was not "out of whack". As I tried to justify myself, I began to say, "If my life were hunky dory, this small incident would be nothing more than a bump in the road; however, I have endured sadness and setbacks for decades now. All the time, my words and ideas are rejected by others, and they have made me feel like I have no place in this world. This small incident is like a drop in the bucket, but the problem is that the bucket has been receiving drops like this for years and years and years; the bucket is completely full, and I am just tired! I am worn out and tired! I can't take it no more!".

 

After talking with these brothers and sisters, I went out for a walk to think things over. As I sat down for a cup of coffee, I began to think about what I had said to them, and that is when the Lord reminded me of a definition for the word "dribble" that I had read in Webster's Dictionary: "To flow or fall in drops". This is when I finally understood the message behind the word "dribble".

 

The spiritual Waynes are usually bombarded by disappointment and rejection. One small disappointment and one small rejection are added sporadically to their "red bucket of sorrows", hour after hour, day after day, and year after year. These drops in the bucket combine to form a message from the world system that says to them: "You are not wanted. There is no place for you here. You might as well not be alive.". In other words, the combined message is a death sentence against "Wayne". When the Lord Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane before He was arrested, His soul was sorrowful unto death, and He was aware of a bitter cup He was supposed to drink (Matthew 26:38-39). This cup included the "bucket of sorrows" mentioned above. It included a death sentence decreed on Yeshua by a world system that saw Him as "troublesome" and "unnecessary", a world system that constantly declared to Him that His ministry and His words had no place in this world:

 

"I know that ye are Abrahamís seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you" (John 8:37)

 

This bucket of sorrows is filled with rejection from the world:

 

"He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not" (Isaiah 53:3)

 

Notice the phrase "acquainted with grief", which betrays a constant encounter with grief. Yeshua, a man full of the Anointing from before He was born, was a man who experienced constant grief throughout His life, a grief brought over Him precisely because of His Anointing. He was not "esteemed", meaning that the world system (which included the so-called "people of God") never valued Him. They never understood who He was and how important He and His words were in the grand scheme of things:

 

"40For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whaleís belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. 42The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here." (Matthew 12:40-42)

 

In Scripture, "sweat" is tied to "toiling in sorrow":

 

"17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." (Genesis 3:17-19)

 

Therefore, as the drops of sorrow overflowed His bucket at Gethsemane, Yeshua began to sweat profusely:

 

"And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." (Luke 22:44)

 

Because of the emphasis on "ground" or "earth" in Genesis 3:17-19, "sweat" can be taken to represent "mentally-induced anxiety arising from earthly concerns". The spilling of blood on the ground speaks of a prophetic libation. Therefore, Luke 22:44 is saying that the Lord was filled with mentally-induced anxiety that would seem on the outside as a concern over "earthly things", but which was really a prophetic spill-over, a prophetic sacrifice being paid unto God. My setback on April 23, 2006 was over a seemingly minute earthly concern, but the emotional spill-over produced by that "insignificant" drop in the bucket was really a prophetic spill-over, a prophetic outpouring before God in the midst of accumulated despair:

 

"1Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite: 2And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. 3And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there. 4And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions: 5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb. 6And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb. 7And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat. 8Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?" (1 Samuel 1:1-8)

 

Notice how Elkanah dismissed Hannah's reaction as "much ado about nothing". Hannah was under a constant hounding by Peninnah, hour after hour, day after day, year after year. One day, after another "insignificant" provocation by Peninnah, Hannah simply "snapped", but Elkanah saw her reaction as "faithlessness", as the "inability to see the forest for the trees". Elkanah did not understand how the accumulation of small sorrows and rejections over a long period can yield a great and sometimes overwhelming sense of prophetic despair. Elkanah did not understand that Hannah's weeping was more than a "mentally-induced anxiety over earthly concerns"; it was a prophetic spill-over unto God. Eli was also unable to understand this at first:

 

"9So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD. 10And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. 11And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head. 12And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth. 13Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. 15And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. 16Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. 17Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him." (1 Samuel 1:9-17)

 

As the drops of sorrow dribble into Wayne's "bucket", Wayne wanes and wanes all the more, until he is eventually reduced to a sense of absolute nothingness and purposelessness. As this sense of nothingness overwhelms you, there is no option but to rise up and pray, i.e.- to rise up and stand in the value you have in the eyes of God, to realize that God is smiling over you and deems your sacrifice precious and worthy (Psalm 116:15) and to enter into prophetic intimacy with God (i.e.- "pray"):

 

"45And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, 46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation." (Luke 22:45-46)

 

When Elijah was threatened by Jezebel, the mighty man of God arose and "ran for his life" (1 Kings 19:1-2). It would seem to the external eye that Elijah was showing a "lack of faith" or an excessive anxiety over an "earthly concern" (i.e.- the preservation of his temporal existence), but his reaction to Jezebel's threat caused an overflow in a bucket of sorrows that had been receiving drop after drop of sorrowful rejection throughout his entire life. This is why Elijah's reaction is to make an assessment that encompasses his entire life:

 

"But he himself went a dayís journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers." (1 Kings 19:4)

 

Notice the expression "It is enough, now", which betrays an accumulation of sorrows that reached a breaking point. Just as was the case with Hannah (1 Samuel 1:18), God gave Elijah food to cheer Him up. In the Garden, God gave Yeshua strengthening through an angel, which means that, in a figurative sense, He received "angel's food":

 

"Man did eat angelsí food: he sent them meat to the full" (Psalm 78:25)

 

After eating, Elijah was told to rise up and walk, which correlates with what the Lord told the disciples after praying (Luke 22:45-46):

 

"5And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. 6And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. 7And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. 8And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God." (1 Kings 19:5-8)

 

In this "journey", Elijah was called to anoint 3 others (1 Kings 19:15-17). Yeshua rose up from His agony because He had to complete His journey so that we could be anointed with Him (2 Corinthians 1:21). In the same way, the spiritual Wayne must get up and complete his journey so that others may enter into the anointing with him.

 

The spiritual Waynes are exposed to a "Chinese water torture", to a constant dripping, to a constant dribble of sorrow drops, drops filled with rejection. At one point, one of those drops causes the soul to reach a "saturation point", and a prophetic spill-over ensues. Just like Elkanah and Eli, most brethren and "pastors" only see the "straw" that broke the camel's back, and they stand in awe at how the "little" brother or sister could just buckle under the weight of a little "straw". However, they fail to realize the entire burden that is weighing on that camel's back, a burden that has been augmented little by little, day after day, year after year, causing a "waning" in Wayne that eventually leads to a point where a sense of "nothingness" absolutely overwhelms you. Most brethren and "pastors" fail to see this burden because they fail to understand the price that we are called to pay in the Lord. The spiritual Waynes do understand that price, and they are fully aware of the heavy burden they are called to bear. They understand that they are called to endure a "PMS", a "Permanent Malaise State". When that PMS reaches a breaking point and we buckle under the pressure, a spiritual breakthrough is usually forged, a breakthrough that will eventually bless the lives of many others. That is how things operate in Wayneís world.
