Prophetic word for today
Second fiddle

 

{The words in square brackets were added by us, sometimes in place of the email's original text, in the hopes of adding more clarity. We believe/pray that the meaning of the original text was not altered in any way.

 

This prophetic word was sent from Poland.}

 

I dreamed that I was with my husband at a Christian conference. I saw there many ministers from Poland, known even from social media. I remember one couple in particular, a married couple who were sitting next to us. I had the feeling that it was a conference for leaders, and, at first, I felt that I might not be welcome here, but my husband boldly said that we are staying.

 

I listened attentively; I was fully focused; I did not pay attention to who is [and] who is not there, who sees me, recognizes me, etc. Then, the [worship] began. And it was worship with Israeli songs, and I felt such a desire to go ahead and [be] with my brothers and sisters in joy to worship the Lord. There were processions that I joined.

 

Then, suddenly, after these processions, I saw that there was some kind of competition. Many brothers and sisters I know [acted as] judges in this competition, and I [felt emboldened] to take part in it, although I usually avoid things where you have to race, but it was somehow encouraging [me].

 

And I remember that I found myself on the ice rink. [Two sisters and I participated]. I was doing very well in this skating and actually started to overtake these people, but they sort of stopped me and encouraged me not to overtake them [and to let] the sister who seemed the weakest to win. According to [what we agreed], I did just that, although I knew that I could really go very fast and take first place.

 

Then I saw that I took second place and immediately got a golden cup from my brother (from the marriage that sat near us). He told me he admired my [social media] posts. I was surprised. He assured me that the cup had such an inimitable seal. This indicates that it is original, unique and I saw that this trophy was golden, [even though] I took second place. His wife, on the other hand, told me that I [skate] very well, and she [didn't] understand why I didn't fully show it. I told her about [the] arrangement with the sisters, and she [concluded] that it was unnecessary.

 

I had the impression that [the skating competition] was a moment when different brothers and sisters could see me and learn something about me. Then, I was surprised because, when [the other sisters] talked to [me] that I should slow down, it [had been] agreed between us that [the] one of them who seemed to be the worst [at skating] should win, and I [quickly] agreed to [that], but, then, it turned out that she didn't win at all, this sister who was doing the worst. Instead, the one of us who just stayed in [between] the [weaker sister and me during the skating won], and I was surprised how this person [had] acted. We [had made a different agreement], and I sacrificed my skill for the weaker sister who didn't win [at the end].

 

And, then, I dreamed that I wanted to show this cup to my dad, and [it was] as if I was walking with my husband to the town where I grew up. And, suddenly, I saw that there [were] a lot of new modern things there, the houses [were] nicer, [and] some new company [was] being built nearby, and I was also positively surprised. I showed the cup to my dad, and he was very proud of me.

 

Our comments

 

A minister-led zombie "revival"

The ministers conference speaks of how the Church in Poland and throughout the world still believes that, if a revival will come, it will be led by a group of elite, well-recognised, and successful ministers (i.e.- pastors) who will "know" how to lead the rest of the "plebeians" into the Promised Land of revival. This is because of the Old-Covenant paradigm of "priests" and "laymen" that the Church still operates under, which is why they believe that a "Moses" needs to come and lead a clueless bunch of sheep across the River Jordan and into the Promised Land. The Church does not understand that the matriarchal "Moses"es who are constantly shielding God from His redemptive Judgement nature (Exodus 32:7-14) cannot cross the Jordan, since the Jordan crossing requires a people who do not revere any man (Joshua 1:16-17), a people led by the Spirit of Joshua (i.e.- Yeshua), a people of anointed individuals.

 

Therefore, any "revival" led by Old-Covenant ministers will eventually turn into nothing more than a brief awakening of undead souls that will quickly return to their dead state after a short period. In other words, "minister"-led revivals are, at the end of the day, nothing more than zombie revivals, especially when they are touted as more than what they really are. In earlier times, God was willing to do more through these revivals, bringing a measure of life and restoration through them, but it was because we were in an earlier state of innocence and ignorance, and God would mercifully compensate for many things that were beyond our understanding at the time. Even so, a full-blown latter-rain revival, like the one God's heart desires, always remained out of reach, even in earlier, more innocent times, because it is literally impossible to produce it in an Old-Covenant environment where the matriarchal soul has not been fully and explicitly subjugated under the Spirit. And now, over 70 years after the rebirth of Israel in 1948, God has revealed so much transformational wisdom that we can no longer hide under the cover of ignorance, and "revivals" that would have yielded more spiritual fruit in years past are now as sterile as a patch of land in Death Valley. They may produce a temporary benefit, but their lasting power is as strong as that of morning mist.

 

"14 Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, 15 And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein: 16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness." (Acts 14:14-17)

 

"13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil." (James 4:13-16)

 

A limited opening

The fact that no one tried to force sister Magda out means that there is a little bit of openness from the elite ministers to allow God's remnant to play a role in the revival, but they are willing to do so without relinquishing overall control of the proceedings. In other words, the anonymous remnant can be allowed a "supporting" role but will never be allowed to overthrow the pastoral matriarchy from its "leadership" position.

 

The Israeli songs during worship also show a little openness to the God of Israel, the Fearsome God of Judgements, the God of Consuming Fire (Hebrews 12:25-29). But, again, that openness is without fully surrendering the pastors' anti-judgement paradigm. They know there is (prophetic) power and (evangelistic) authority in the "God of Israel", and their desire is to channel that power and authority to produce a "revival" and aggrandise their ministries and their relevance within the Church (and the world). Said another way, they are willing to "share the stage" with the remnant and the God of Israel, but they are never willing to surrender the stage. They are like Nicolae Ceauşescu, sometimes showing signs of "enlightenment" and openness to "new ideas" but becoming staunchly "anti-change" when they fear that that change will lead to their decline from power.

 

"Thou shalt not compete with the pastor"

The skating competition also points to this spirit of partial submission to the spirit of God's remnant and His plans. The competition per se points to the evangelistic ministry, since that is the ministry most directly related to conquest and victory, which is why evangelists tend to be very competitive by nature, always hating to lose.

 

Including sister Magda, the dream makes a reference to 3 women, which points to the 3 ministries that are most prevalent in the matriarchal Church. As we have often shared, the 2 dominating ministries are the "female" ministries of pastor and teacher. Even so, these ministries have allowed the "male" ministry of evangelist to play a role, but always as a ministry subservient to the "pastor king" (or better said, "pastor queen"). The reason why they allow the evangelist to play this supporting role is so that he/she can bring in more people into their little kingdoms in order to keep them "well-financed" and "successful". Hence, the 3 women represent the pastoral, teacher, and evangelist ministries.

 

In the dream, the "pastor" and the "teacher" (especially the pastor) were seeing that sister Magda, as a conquering remnant evangelist, was going to outshine them and expose their spiritual lack, so they convinced her to let them win. The intention in sister Magda's heart was not to outshine anyone and hog the glory, but, instead, it was to impart something to the brethren as they observed her skating style and watched her have victory. This is why sister Magda shares that "it was a moment when different brothers and sisters could see me and learn something about me". When they convinced her to let the slowest of them win, they were referring to the weakest of the 3 ministries, which as we share before, is the ministry of teacher.

 

The aborting mountain

For some reason, the ice per se makes me think of a prophetic word posted on 12 May 2009 called "The anti-Stacies", reminding me in particular of the image of a snow-covered mountain in that posting. As I was typing this email, I felt led to go to that posting, and I realised that the snow-covered mountain is next to a section called "Mountain Drew" that talks about "evangelists gone bad". I strongly believe that the Amorite spirit of "Mountain Drew" was present during that skating competition (and the entire service) in an effort to establish dominion over the evangelistic endowment in God's Holy remnant. This is why the sisters asked sister Magda to yield and let the weaker sister win. Appealing to pastoral compassion and prophetic sacrifice, they used the other sister's weakness to convince sister Magda that she should not be the winner. The spirits that move the pastoral matriarchy know that the remnant are not in the "competition" or the warfare to gain glory for themselves but are instead in it to enable God's people and liberate them from the shackles of the Old-Covenant paradigm that they have been under. As sister Magda discovered later, it was all a ruse because the weaker sister did not win. Instead, the sister who represented the pastoral ministry won.

 

By preventing the remnant winning and short-circuiting the impartation of the remnant spirit amongst the brethren, the murderous "Mountain Drew" spirit that operates in pastors are constantly aborting the manifestation of God's nature in His people, leaving them in a permanent state of Perizzite lameness and dependence. This is how the Church turns into a "mountain of abortions", a high place where eternal callings and potential is constantly sacrificed to satan. In the depths of their souls, pastors see as a small price to pay to maintain their control over the brethren.

 

The 3 ministries across the 5 seals

The connection between the weaker sister and the teacher ministry also points to the intention in sister Magda's heart. As sister Magda shared in her email, she saw the competition as "a moment when different brothers and sisters could see me and learn something about me". She wanted them to learn something, meaning that she wanted to teach them something about God and His Nature. Besides appealing to pastoral compassion and prophetic sacrifice (as shared above), the deceitful sisters also used this desire in sister Magda to teach others about God's nature as a tool to convince her heart to yield to them, all so that the "pastor" sister would win. Thus, we can conclude that the matriarchal sisters' appeal to sister Magda was pastoral, prophetic, and teacherly.

 

This connection to the 3 ministries of pastor, prophet, and teacher points to an important spiritual reality. As we have shared before,

  • the red-horse rider is a teacher-apostle,
  • the black-horse rider is an apostle-prophet,
  • and the green-horse rider is a prophet-pastor.

However, there is also a "tertiary" ministry associated to each horse. The red-horse rider, for example, is a teacher-apostle who has gone prophetic. Why? Because as he acts as a weak teacher pronouncing judgements on the paradigms of Cain, he goes prophetic by acting as a person who boldly confronts the stronger and "well-recognised" Cain, even at the risk of being killed by him, meaning that he is acting as a prophet defying human authority who is willing to die in sacrifice as he teaches what needs to be taught and judges what needs to be judged. As we have briefly said before, the red-horse rider becomes acquainted with God the Son, which is why he figuratively (and sometimes literally) dies at the hands of his brethren, just as Abel did at the hands of Cain and just as Yeshua did at the hand of the Jews.

 

By contrast, the black-horse rider is an apostle-prophet who wanders in the isolated black-horse wilderness, being forced to "pastor" or "shepherd" himself under the guidance of God's Spirit, as opposed to depending on visible, earthly pastors. Instead of depending on others for his provision, he learns to become an independent producer who provides for himself (humanly speaking). As we have shared before, the black-horse rider becomes acquainted with God the Father, who provides for him like a faithful father who provides for his own (1 Timothy 5:3-8, Romans 4:12, Genesis 22:14). Thus, in an ironic way, as the black-horse rider escapes the matriarchal house of "pastor Cain", he turns into an apostle-prophet gone pastoral.

 

The green-horse rider, on the other hand, is, as we have shared before, a prophet-pastor who becomes acquainted with the Holy Spirit as he prepares to die in prophetic sacrifice, descend to Sheol, and be resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

"1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, 2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) 3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:" (Romans 1:1-4)

 

Interestingly, as we interact with the Holy Spirit, He will begin to teach us things, only that these things will be at a higher spiritual level, a level above that of a full-blown teacher, for He will teach us as a perfected teacher, i.e.- as a teacher who has fully entered into the prophetic.

 

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." (John 14:26)

 

The Lord said the above to the disciples when He was preparing them for His arrest and death, meaning that He spoke these words as a green-horse rider preparing to descend to Sheol. As He spoke these words, He was preparing them for when they were to follow Him down the green-horse path to Sheol later on. Thus, we can conclude from all of the above that a green-horse rider is a prophet-pastor gone teacherly, meaning that the teacher endowment is the green-horse's tertiary ministry.

 

We can now summarise each horse stage's ministries as follows:

Apocalypse
horse
Primary
ministry
Secondary
ministry
Tertiary
ministry
Red Teacher Apostle Prophetic
Black Apostle Prophet Pastoral
Green Prophet Pastor Teacherly

 

Notice that the ministry columns in the above table exhibit a pattern, as if the ministries are going around a circle of ministries in this order:

ApostleProphetPastorTeacher → back to Apostle

In other words, it is as if the columns cycle through the ministries in the order that they are listed in Ephesians 4:11, but with the ministry of evangelist removed. Ironically, the absence of the evangelistic ministry in the cycle actually reflects the fact that the entire galloping of the 4 horses and the opening of the 7 seals of the Apocalypse is to carry out an evangelistic reconquest of the Church and the world, meaning that the evangelistic ministry is basically embedded everywhere. Notice also that this cycle is even present horizontally, in the table's rows, when one goes from the primary, to the secondary, and to the tertiary ministry.

 

If we project the cycle backwards from the red horse (the 2nd horse of the Apocalypse) back to the white horse (the 1st horse), and if we project the cycle forward from the green horse (the 4th horse and seal of the Apocalypse) to the 5th seal, we get the following expanded table:

Apocalypse
horse/seal
Primary
ministry
Secondary
ministry
Tertiary
ministry
White Pastor Teacher Apostolic
Red Teacher Apostle Prophetic
Black Apostle Prophet Pastoral
Green Prophet Pastor Teacherly
5th seal Pastor Teacher Apostolic

 

Notice also how the tertiary ministry of one row becomes the secondary ministry of the next row and how the secondary ministry becomes the first ministry in the next row, with the primary ministry always disappearing in the next row. Only the God of Israel could have produced such a beautiful and consistent pattern!!! Glory be to Him!

 

It is also interesting to note that the ministries associated to the 5th seal are the same as those for the 1st seal, thereby completing the cycle. Notice also that both the 1st and 5th seals have the "female" ministries of pastor and teacher as the primary and secondary ministries, thus emphasising the state of "female" weakness that the believer starts in as he goes on the 7-seals journey, as well as the "female" weakness and apparent failure that the believer appears to return to after his green-horse death as he awaits for God's vindicating 6th-seal vengeance.

 

Ju-jitsu on the green

From all of the above, we can see why sister Magda, who represents a green-horse remnant believer in the dream, had her heart bent towards teaching, i.e.- towards the green-horse's "tertiary" ministry. Hence, it is evil how the 2 matriarchal sisters used this teacher inclination in sister Magda's heart to their advantage. By convincing her to make a prophetic sacrifice and yield to the weaker sister, they were, in a way, saying to her, "Let the weaker ministry of teacher win; let it stand out so that the brethren here may learn a lesson about God's sacrificial nature".

 

The above shows how the cunning, Korah-inspired matriarchal leaders try to use the green-horse believers' strengths against them, as in the Japanese martial art of ju-jitsu, where the attacker does not attempt to overpower his rival through brute strength but, instead, partially "yields" to the rival, manipulating his strength to channel it against him. To defeat Korah and the matriarchal system, the green-horse believer must remain uncompromising and unyielding, committed to the total obliteration of the matriarchal system and those who uphold it.

 

Friendly but non-committal and gender-confused

Sister Magda shared that the man from the married couple (seated next to her husband and her) gave her a special and very unique golden cup even though she had taken second place. She also shared that this man admired her social media posts. This means that he is friendly to the remnant message. However, the fact that he gave her this trophy means that he finds it acceptable that the remnant remain hidden and under the shadow of the pastoral matriarchy. In other words, he is friendly to the remnant and to the word from God that they speak, but he sees the remnant and their message as playing nothing more than a "supporting role", second fiddle, to strengthen the work of pastors and teachers. The fact that he did not express any indignation over the sisters lying to sister Magda shows that he is willing to overlook the misdeeds of the pastoral elites as long as the "established order" is preserved. Said another way, he represents the believers (including pastors) who are only half-friendly to the remnant and their message. They are friendly enough to appreciate them, but not friendly enough to believe that the remnant must be manifested so that the current established order in the Church can be overthrown.

 

This man's wife, on the other hand, did see that an injustice had been done by the sisters who had lied to sister Magda. But, being the wife, she did not have the authority to override what her husband was saying or the authority to prevent him giving sister Magda a trophy for second place. In a sense, this couple represent an ironic reversal of the male/female functionality. The (male) husband was acting in favour of the "female" matriarchy, and the (female) wife was acting in favour of the remnant and their spiritually "male" message. The wife, therefore, represents those within the Church who see how unfair it is that the remnant are not allowed to shine like the Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:2) but who are powerless to do anything about it. The husband, who is supposed to behave like a strong "male" spirit, is behaving like a weak "female" soul, and the wife, who is a strong "male" spirit on the inside, is kept in a state of "female" weakness and is not allowed to effect change within the Church.

 

Progress, but not enough

Sister Magda then shared that she and her husband walked to the town where she had grown up and that she saw how modernised it had become. For some strange reason, this writer started to think about john paul 2 (Karol Jozef Wˇjtyla) when reading that part of the dream, as if the town sister Magda and her husband were walking to was where john paul 2 was from, the town of Wadowice. Regardless of whether the town in the dream was literally Wadowice or not, this writer believes that there is a spiritual reality here. It is as if the town represents Poland and how it started in the backwardness of catholicism and how it has been able to grow out of that backwardness and into a strong manifestation of Protestantism. However, despite the progress, Poland remains a small town spiritually. This points to the Perizzite "village" spirits that have hindered the growth of Eastern Europe for centuries and centuries.

 

The fact that sister Magda's dad was proud of her due to the trophy speaks of how previous generations in Poland rejoice at the spiritual progress that Poland has made, in great part because they can do a "before and after" comparison in their minds, having lived through the days when Protestantism was soundly rejected. However, those with the Spirit of Dreams and Visions, i.e.- those with the Spirit of Philadelphia, who are willing to dream the great and amazing things of the Lord, cannot be satisfied with the progress that Protestantism has made, for, as long as the remnant are kept in the background, playing little more than a supporting role, God's purposes for Poland, and for the world in general, cannot be fulfilled.

 

As a side note, I felt led, shortly after typing the above, to look up the Wikipedia page on Wadowice, and this is what it said in the "Economy" section of the English version of the article (at the time when I read it) ...

Wadowice is today mainly a centre for tourism and sightseeing, but also a place for small industries such as the production of machines and construction materials. There is also the headquarters of the biggest juice-maker of Poland, Maspex, and the shoe producer Badura.

 

This seems to correlate with what sister Magda said about the town in her dream: "new modern things there" (industries that produce machines), "the houses were nicer" (construction materials), and "a new company being built nearby" (the Maspex and Badura headquarters).
