The exalted judging serpents

Starting at Jeremiah 8:16, the Lord begins to speak about a specific type of judgment against the stubborn Church:


"16The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein. 17For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD." (Jeremiah 8:16-17)


The horses' "snorting" in verse 16 points to their "noses", and, as we have seen before, the "nose" is related to "wrath" in Scripture. Therefore, verse 16 is speaking of the river of God's wrath manifested against those who have rejected His red-horse riders.


The name "Dan" literally means "judge". Therefore, it points to the judgment-making apostolic ministry. This means that "Dan" represents the teacher-apostle red-horse riders who have separated themselves from Cain and who are launching black-horse judgments against him and his structures from the lonely, uncovered wilderness. Notice that the snorting of "His" (i.e.- God's) horses was "heard from Dan". This correlates with the fact that John heard a voice declaring the black-horse judgment without seeing who was the one speaking (Revelation 6:6).


God declares the following prophecy regarding "Dan":


"16Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD." (Genesis 49:16-18)


Notice how this prophecy begins with "judgment" (v16) and ends with "salvation" (v18). The word "salvation" was translated from the Hebrew word yeshuwa, from which we get the name "Yeshua" or "Jesus". In other words, God is declaring that it shall be through the judgments of "Dan" that Yeshua shall be manifested on Earth. This correlates with Isaiah 1:27, where the Lord declares that Zion shall be "redeemed with judgment".


Due to the matriarchal Church's aversion to God's judgments, most preachers who preach on Genesis 49:16-18 see Dan as a figure of "satanic evil". They feel that this view is justified by the fact that Dan is portrayed in verse 17 as a "serpent by the way" and an "adder in the path". However, this presupposes that "serpents" are always a figure of "satanic evil". Yet, such a supposition would contradict God's words in Jeremiah 8:17 above, where He declares that He (not satan) will send "serpents" among the people, and that these "serpents" will not be "charmed". In other words, these "serpents" will not be seduced by the ensnaring "gospel" of "blessings", "prosperity", and "mercy without justice" because they will be focused on executing God's purifying judgments, like "soulless" angels sent by the Lord. If these "serpents" were satan's messengers, why are they "charm-proof"? Isn't evil inherently based on, and susceptible to, deceit? Besides, if these "serpents" were evil messengers from satan, why would the corrupt people try to "charm" them in order to prevent them from doing their appointed task? Would satan try to deceive his own messengers?


"6And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. 7Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. 8And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. 9And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived." (Numbers 21:6-9)


Notice that the Lord sent "fiery serpents" (v6) to execute judgment against the people, and those serpents forced the people to recognize that they had sinned against the Lord (v7). Notice also that God instructed Moses to make a "fiery serpent", "set it upon a pole", and tell the people to look upon that "brass serpent" in order to live (v8,9). Many preachers have associated this brass serpent to Jesus hanging on the cross, but they have always admitted a certain reticence about equating the serpent to Jesus. Their "solution" has been to declare that Jesus became "sin for us" and that, therefore, the serpent on the pole represented "our sin being crucified on the cross". Even though this explanation sounds "logical", it has a basic problem: It presupposes that the serpent was "crucified" or "put to shame" on the pole that Moses lifted up. However, the original text reveals a different thing. The word "pole" was translated from the Hebrew word nes, which literally means "standard", and, out of the 20 times that it appears in the Old Testament, the King James translators chose to translate it as "pole" only twice: in Numbers 21:8 and Numbers 21:9. The word nes is derived from the word nasas, which means "to be lifted up, exalted". Therefore, Numbers 21:8 should really say that the serpent was "set upon a standard", which means that the serpent was "lifted up", or "exalted". This is the same message that is portrayed in the New Testament when Jesus speaks of this serpent:


"13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:13-15)


Notice how verse 13 speaks of a "son of man which is in heaven", yet Jesus was on Earth when he said those words. Therefore, He was prophesying of His return to the Father (John 14:-1-4), and of the rise of "the son of man" to union with the Father. When Jesus would speak of the "son of man", He was not only referring to Himself, but to all human beings who truly believe in Him, i.e.- who believe in Yeshua as the model of what each human being has a potential to be, if only he or she submits him or herself under the Father's strong hand.


"4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet" (Psalm 8:4-6)

[Notice how this passage speaks of the "son of man" in the context of the entire human race, and notice how it speaks of God exalting lowly man]


"17Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself. 18So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name. 19Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved." (Psalm 80:17-19)

[Notice how verse 17 declares that God has made the son of man "strong for Himself". This means that God created man in order to raise him up unto Himself.]


"3LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him! 4Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away. 5Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. 6Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them. 7Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children; 8Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood." (Psalm 144:3-8)

[Notice how the phrase "son of man" is not used to refer to some sort of "Superman" who stands above "mortal men". Instead, it is used in the context of human frailty and weakness (v4). Notice how the "son of man" pleads for God to send His hand from above to destroy the unrighteous who have set themselves against him and who are oppressing him, taking advantage of his human frailty.]


"1The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 2And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 3And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live?" (Ezekiel 37:1-3)

[In the book of Ezekiel, the Lord refers to Ezekiel as "son of man" 93 times. This is the case because Ezekiel allowed the strong hand of the Lord to be constantly over him, which means that he constantly submitted to God's Lordship.]


In John 3:14 (quoted above), the phrase "lifted up" that appears twice was translated from the Greek word hypso, which means "to exalt, to lift up on high". This word also appears in the following passage:


"52He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. 53He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away." (Luke 1:52-53)

[The word "exalted" in verse 52 was translated from hypso]


"For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted" (Luke 14:11)

[The words "exalteth" and "exalted" were translated from hypso. To humble yourself is to submit yourself under the strong hand of the Lord (1 Peter 5:6).]


"32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 35Until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ." (Acts 2:32-36)


From all of the above, it becomes evident that the "lifting up of the son of man" that the Lord speaks of in John 3:14 refers to the exaltation of weak and frail man to God's level. Because of passages such as John 12:32-34, preachers have thought that the "lifting up of the son of man" refers to the physical act where Jesus was hoisted up at Calvary as His body was nailed to the cross. However, His death was not His exaltation, but rather, the door to His exaltation, for, through His death, He descended to the lowest parts of the Earth before being raised up and exalted to the right hand of the Father (Ephesians 4:8-10, Acts 2:36).


Since Yeshua compares the "lifting up of the son of man" to the lifting up (or "exaltation") of the serpent by Moses, we can conclude that the serpent here is not a figure of "sin". Jesus was not being exalted as He hung on the cross. When He was "made sin for us" (2 Corinthians 5:21), He was being humiliated and being made to descend to the lowest parts of the Earth, but, in His willful death, He was paving the way for the exaltation of all those who would believe in Him (John 3:14-16). From all of the above, it becomes evident that "to believe in the son of man" is to see the son of man's potential for exaltation. To "believe in the son of man" is to believe in the God-potential in the "son of man", like the centurion who watched Jesus die:


"Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God." (Matthew 27:54)

[Notice that the centurion and the men who were with Him did not declared Jesus as "the Son of God" as a result of seeing Jesus physically hanging above them. Instead, they confessed Him to be the "Son of God" upon seeing the things that happened around them as Jesus died. Even though all that their natural minds could see was a weak son of man who had died like a criminal as he hung from a wooden cross, they were willing to recognize Him as the "Son of God" because of the supernatural manifestations around Him. They were able to see the God-potential in that weak man, a potential that the religious leaders were unable to visualize.]


Whoever cannot believe that the weak and frail "son of man" cannot be exalted to the right hand of the Father does not yet believe in Yeshua. Those who consider it "blasphemy" (John 10:30-38) to think such a thought have not yet believed unto eternal life (Acts 13:46). Yet, it must be emphasized that this exaltation, which we are all called to "seize" (Philippians 3:8-14), is obtained through complete submission under the mighty and strong hand of God. You must be willing to descend in Him before you can be ascended unto Him.


If the serpent that Moses lifted up in the desert is not a figure of "sin", what is it a figure of? Why was it used as a figure of how the "son of man" is to be exalted? Because serpents are creatures that have to drag themselves on the ground, and they can easily be "overlooked", since you have to look down to see them. In a positive sense, therefore, serpents are a figure of "overlookable" human lowliness.


It is a dangerous to overlook a viper. Even though it is not able to "stand very tall", a viper can bring down tall animals that overlook it. As they ride on their "high horse", the Church's leaders have dismissed (and continue to dismiss) the judgments of God's lowly red-horse riders, but it is these very judgments which shall topple their dominion over God's people.


"16Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD." (Genesis 49:16-18)


Notice that God first calls Dan "a serpent by the way" and then calls him "an adder in the path". The "serpent by the way" refers to God's red-horse riders creating "internal strife" as they confront Cain about his ways. As these serpents are dismissed, rejected and separated, they shall turn into venomous vipers "in the path". The word "path" was translated from the Hebrew word orach, which is derived from the word arach meaning "to wander". Therefore, it refers to the red-horse riders who have been "kicked out" of the Church's religious structures (literally or figuratively) and are forced to wander in the uncovered, lonely "wilderness", where they are given a black-horse impartation. Through that impartation, these remnant believers start launching scarcity-causing judgments into the structures they left behind. These are the "adder bites" of Genesis 49:17, which shall lead to the long-awaited salvation and vindication of God's remnant and the Church in general (v18).


The serpent "by the way" is also a spiritual reference to the two blind men of Matthew 20:29-34 who were "by the wayside". These men are a figure of the remnant believers who have been relegated by the Church, abandoned without any support from the Church's structures. These are the berated and discarded "serpents" that are seen as a "menace to society" by the religious leaders who want to preserve the status quo. These lowly believers, who have no backing but the backing of God Himself, shall be the ones who will strike down the "mighty" religious leaders who are hindering the manifestation of God's Glory in these latter days.


God shall not redeem His people until they begin to look up at the lowly "serpents" that they have rejected. This is the reason why God would heal the bitten Israelites on the condition that they look up at the serpent that was exalted on a standard (Numbers 21:6-9). The Church shall not be redeemed until it learns to see the God-potential in lowly believers, and it shall be forced to bow its knee at the manifestation of Yeshua in the weak believers it has discarded, rebuked, and tormented.


Genesis 49:16 (quoted above) says that Dan shall judge his people, "as one of the tribes of Israel". This is to emphasize how the spirit of judgment (i.e.- "Dan") has been rejected by the people, as if it were not "one of the spiritual tribes" in the Church. However, God will force the Church to recognize and bow to the spirit of judgment, which He is sending through "lowly serpents" that are easily "dismissible" to the natural mind.


In conclusion, the "snorting of the horses" that was heard from Dan (Jeremiah 8:16) represents the invisible black-horse judgments launched by the "weak-looking (red-horse) judges" who have turned into "grace-aware (black-horse) judges" in the wilderness outside. These spiritual horses will come in the form of lowly serpents; those whom the Church's principalities have belittled shall be the ones who will cause their downfall.


"18Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. 19As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. 20Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?" (Amos 5:18-20)


The confidence shakers

Jeremiah 8:16 (quoted above) declares that the earth trembles at the sound of the neighing of the "strong ones". The Hebrew words from which "land" and "trembled" were translated in Jeremiah 8:16 also appear in verse 2 of Psalm 60:


"1O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. 2Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. 3Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. 4Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. 5That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me." (Psalm 60:1-5)


As we have studied before, Katrina and Rita were a physical manifestation of the prophetic word given by God in Psalm 60. The "trembling of the earth" mentioned in verse 2 refers to God shaking people's confidence in Girgashite earthliness. Therefore, it is an attack on Cain's earthly ways, and it is an attack on Balaam's effort to use spiritual grace for earthly, temporal purposes.


Balaam turns the people of God into wide-gate believers who see God's "spiritual" weapons as a means to get self-centered, temporal blessings, instead of seeing His weapons as a means to achieve God's will and purposes on Earth. Balaam offers the "benefits" of spirituality and grace without the need to leave the comfort of Girgashite earthliness. Balaam demotes the things of the Spirit from their high purposes down to selfish, temporal purposes. The Girgashite followers of Balaam, therefore, become dazzled by Balaam's "spiritual displays" and are gladdened by his focus on earthly goals. In short, Balaam makes his followers feel like they are delving into the things of the Spirit without having to sacrifice their focus on earthly things. Balaam offers the comfort of Cain's Girgashite structures disguised in "spirituality" and "grace". Cain is a Girgashite-Jebusite gone Amorite, and Balaam is a Hittite-Amorite gone Girgashite. Cain is a distorted teacher-apostle gone Amorite-proud, and Balaam is a distorted prophet-evangelist gone Girgashite-earthly.


Therefore, when God declares that the earth will tremble in Jeremiah 8:16, He is declaring that He will shake the Girgashite confidence that the Church has in Cain and Balaam. The people who follow Balaam are those who refused to listen to God's red-horse shout that called them to separate themselves from Cain, choosing instead to follow stubborn Cain as he morphed into a wandering Balaam. They are people who are always in need of a "human leader" because they are unable to depend upon God Himself. This is why God sends His neighing black horse to shake that spirit of dependence on man, "devouring" Balaam's fruit to expose his emptiness. According to Jeremiah 8: 16, the black horse will devour ...

  1. The land

    The word "land" was translated from the Hebrew word erets, which can also be translated as "earth". Therefore, it refers to the earthly "barley" of material prosperity offered by Balaam.


  2. All that is in it

    The phrase "all that is in it" was translated from the Hebrew word melo, which literally means "fullness". As we have said before, the ministry most directly related to "fullness" is the prophetic ministry. Therefore, it refers here to the pseudo-prophetic "wheat" of emotional religious experiences offered by Balaam. These experiences create a fleeting sense of fullness that deceives people into thinking that they are flowing in God's prophetic anointing.


As the black horse neighs from outside the Church's structures, it is also giving a "preview" of the horse that follows, the green horse of the Apocalypse. As we have said before, the green horse produces spiritual (and literal) earthquakes that "open up" the ground, allowing God's remnant people to escape from their underground "Sheol" prisons. The black horse causes the "surface" to tremble in fear, and the green horse causes the underground foundations to be utterly shaken, leading to utter destruction above ground. Those who refuse to "leave the premises" after the black horse's surface tremor will be swallowed up by the earth (Korah-style) when the green horse strikes.


An empty wasted summer

The Lord ends Jeremiah 8 with the following words:


"18When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me. 19Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities? 20The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. 21For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. 22Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?" (Jeremiah 8:18-22)

[The word "country" in verse 19 was translated from the Hebrew word erets, which literally means "land, earth".]


Notice how verse 19 portrays the people as dwelling in a "faraway earth", which speaks of a people that has fled "west" with Cain, far away from the Sun of Righteousness in the "east". Notice also how the Lord confronts the people for not recognizing Him as "Lord" and "king" (v19). A king is a person whose will is recognized as "sovereign". Therefore, God is declaring that the Church does not understand the "will of the Lord". As we studied before, this means that the Church is not seeking after His Kingdom and His righteousness, and is therefore trapped in a vain pursuit of "Balaamic" wine (Ephesians 5:14-18).


According to verse 19, the Church has not recognized the Anointed One within her, and has therefore searched after the Anointing in false gods. This means that the Church does not see that the Kingdom is within her (Luke 17:20-22), and is therefore looking for external kings who will establish the kingdom for her. The Church does not see the Anointing in the "lowly serpents" in her midst, and is therefore susceptible to those who say "The Anointed One is here" or "The Anointed One is there":


"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not" (Matthew 24:23)

[The word "Christ" comes from the Greek word christos meaning "the anointed one"]


When believers are convinced that the anointing is "out there" and not within them, they expose themselves to the spirit of anti-Christ, and they will be quick to follow after false-prophet Balaams who offer them temporal "wheat" and "barley". Those false-prophet Balaams then turn into their "Baals" (i.e.- lords), provoking God to anger.


Jeremiah 8:20 declares a sad consequence: "The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved". This speaks of a visitation wasted. This is exactly what happened to the Church in America, and she still does not know it. The Lord placed the Church under a restoration process, like a cake placed in an oven to be cooked and eaten. The Lord has come to America to open the oven door and see if the cake was ready, but the stubborn cake has refused to cook. God is now closing the oven door and saying,

"You will need more time in the oven. I shall place you under more judgment heat, for you are not yet ready for Me."


Oh, foolish Church, you don't realize what transpired before you. Despite all the warnings and judgments that God has sent against you, you continue to behave like a stubborn mule. You continue to follow after your Cains and your Balaams. Therefore, God shall send the green horse against you, and you will shake and shiver, says the Lord, for My word has already been decreed, and I shall ensure its fulfillment.



All the pastoral soothing balm in Gilead was not enough to ease the pain of Katrina (Jeremiah 8:22), and it shall not be enough for what is about to strike America as a result of the Canaanite influence she has allowed into her.


Sister Lauretta Weir received her prophetic word on September 10, 2005, and she e-mailed it to us on September 16, 2005. This prophetic word was confirmed by the following signs:


On September 12, 2005, exactly 14 days after Katrina hit Louisiana, there was a 2.5-hour power outage throughout Los Angeles, California.


Less than 2 weeks after September 16, 4 earthquakes were felt around the L.A. area.


Around the end of September, the L.A. area was hit by wildfires spurred by a period of drought.


In the month of October 2005, the L.A. area was hit by mudslides caused by the combination of excessive rain at the end of 2004 and the drought around September 2005.


In the month of October 2005, the L.A. area was also pounded by hail!!!


Around xmas 2004, L.A. and southern California were hit by rains that caused massive flooding, which is a figure of God's black-horse judgment against the Canaanite influence in L.A. and California. As we have said before, illegal Latin American immigration has led to an infiltration of Canaanite influence from Latin America into the U.S. Of all the states in the American Union, the one most affected by this Canaanite influence is California, and the city most influenced is Los Angeles. It is no coincidence that both "Latin America" and "Los Angeles" can both be abbreviated as "L.A.", and it is no coincidence that the name "LAodecia" begins with the letters "LA". The church in Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22) was infested by the Hivite spirit of indulgence and the enjoyment of inherited grace. Most of the illegal Latin American immigrants enter the U.S. with the hopes of "making money", but without appreciating the political, social, and (in the end) spiritual structures that make all the "money-making" possible. These structures were put in place by people who held moral convictions contrary to theirs, but they still want to reap the benefits of their work. They want to enjoy the "inheritance" left by others without admitting to the spiritual values that produced that inheritance in the first place. They abhor America for its "imperialism" and its "discrimination of minorities", yet they continue migrating to America in droves, and they demand that America adapt to the very cultural values that have propitiated Latin America's economic and cultural poverty. They don't migrate to America because they love America. Instead, they migrate because they love America's money, just like the Church that goes after God because of the blessings He can give them, and not because they love God Himself.


A month or so ago, the Lord allowed me to overhear a conversation between two Hispanics. In the conversation, one of them said to the other: "We are becoming the largest minority here; pretty soon, there will be more of us than there are gringos here; we are taking over". It angered me to hear such an idiotic declaration. It betrayed the speaker's disinterest in becoming part of the American culture. By referring to "gringos" in the third person, he was evidently excluding himself, meaning that he had no interest in becoming a "gringo" himself. Ironically, the word "gringo" comes from the expression "Green go home", which the Mexicans would shout at the green-uniformed U.S. army during the Mexican-American War in the 19th century. Therefore, the word "gringo" is a term that expresses rejection and spite against America. When a Hispanic uses such a term on American soil, he is declaring that he is the one at home and that the white non-Hispanics should go elsewhere. However, "home" is where you feel comfortable. If a Hispanic feels comfortable and satisfied with the Latin American culture, his true home is Latin America. And, if that is the case, the one that should be "going home" is him, not the people who were in America before him and who built up the structures from which he is now deriving illegal benefits.

I shall plunder the plunderers, says the Lord, for I abhor the ungrateful. Cursed be those who take grapes from My vine and then turn around to curse My vine. My grapes shall be as wormwood to you, and they shall be bitter in your mouth, for My wrath is against the blind fools who claim to see.


"6Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay! 7Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them? 8Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of menís blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. 9Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil! 10Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul. 11For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it. 12Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity! 13Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity? 14For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea." (Habakkuk 2:8-14)

[Notice the implicit reference to the "rising serpents" in verse 7. As illegal immigrants and others have "increased what is not theirs" (v6), they have worked to hinder the rise of the remnant, but that remnant shall rise anyway and bite the judgment-hating people who have dismissed and attacked them. The plunderers shall be plundered (v8), and the cities established by iniquity shall crumble (v12), for the riches obtained on the basis of illegality shall not stand.]


There are a few special cases where God has allowed (and even exhorted) certain Latin Americans to migrate to America, even without all their documents in order. This is a result of America's legalistic restrictions that impose unnecessary limitations on those who do wish to migrate legally. Yet, those cases are few and far between. Most Latin American illegals reflect a sense of irreverent defiance against laws and regulations. If they feel like "coming to America", they will do so, without any type of internal debate regarding the ethical issues of breaking another country's laws. This irreverence towards "law and order" is one of the major reasons why Latin America is the underdeveloped region it has always been (and will always be). Most L.A. (Latin American) illegals want to become U.S. citizens, not because they love America and everything it stands for, but because a U.S. citizenship would allow them to enjoy even more benefits from the "imperialistic oppressor" which they so despise.


As these illegal immigrants have been "coming to America" without shedding their unrighteous roots, they have created a spiritual barrier that is preventing God Himself from "coming to America". Therefore, God will have to break that barrier by separating those who have fostered this barrier against Him, and this "separating" will include a literal separation of parts of California, as the prophetic word given by the Lord to sister Weir declares. The Latin American culture is a Canaanite culture that hates the word "judgment"; however, the Lord declares that Zion shall be redeemed through judgment (Isaiah 1:26-28, Amos 5:24), meaning that America cannot come alive until the anti-judgment Canaanite spirit that is prevalent in California and Latin America is broken, and it shall be broken through the curse unto destruction that God has already pronounced through His remnant.


Much of what we are sharing above has fallen, and will fall, on deaf ears. To most, it is a fallacy to declare that Latin American immigration is more than just a "legal" issue and that it has tremendous significance in the spirit realm. This is the reason why a massive event will have to take place in order for America to react, and, even so, many will refuse to see the spiritual connection, just as they did with Katrina and New Orleans. They will try to apply the "balm of Gilead" to a "wounded nation", just as they did with Katrina, but, once again, all the pastoral "balm of Gilead" in the world will not be enough to fake out the lack of peace between God and the Church in America. Though the "ministers" may say "there, there ... peace, peace", it will be evident to all that there is no peace (Jeremiah 8:11).


"2Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. 3The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his masterís crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. 4Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. 5Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint." (Isaiah 1:2-5)


Los Angeles is the largest stronghold of Latin American Canaanite influence in the U.S. Once that Canaanite influence is broken, revival will break out across America and the world.


The ascension of the humble

Jeremiah 8 ends with an "interesting" question:


"Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?" (Jeremiah 8:22)


The word "recovered" was mistranslated from the Hebrew word alah, which means "to ascend, go up". Therefore, the question should read, "why then has the health of the daughter of my people not ascended?". This points to the "lifting up of the son of man" mentioned above. For centuries, God has been waiting for the Church to realize that He wants to exalt weak-looking man unto Him. More than giving man a nice car or a nice house, He wants him to rise into Oneness with Him. As long as the Church continues to belittle His "lowly serpents", her purpose for existing will never be fulfilled. As long as the Church does not understand that God wants to manifest Himself in weak flesh, His judgments shall be upon her, for God's purposes shall come to pass.



As we shared in a previous word, Isaiah 8 shifts from the red horse towards the black horse starting at verse 16. In the same way, Jeremiah 8 begins a subtle shift from the black horse towards the green horse starting at verse 16. As we saw above, Jeremiah 8:16 points to the prophecy about Dan that starts in Genesis 49:16. "Coincidentally", we received sister Weir's prophecy on September 16, 2005. There is a spiritual reason for the recurrence of the number "16". As we have shared before, the number "16" refers to the Church's stubborn insistence on a spiritual revival where the prophetic remnant remains subdued under the pastoral matriarchy. Therefore, the judgments of Katrina and Rita, along with the coming judgment on California, are manifestations of God's wrath against the "16" spirit in the matriarchal Church.


The fact that we received sister Weir's prophetic word on September 16 also has spiritual significance. That date happens to be Mexico's "independence day". Outside of Mexico, there is no city on Earth with a larger Mexican population than Los Angeles. Around November 30, 2005, as I was typing the first part of this prophetic word, the Lord dropped this thought into my heart out of nowhere: "I am angry at Mexico". Two days later, the day when that word was posted, I found out on the news at night that a volcano in the Mexico City area had erupted. Apparently, the eruption did not cause major damage, but it surprised many people there. This volcanic activity was a physical manifestation of God's nostrils fuming with anger at the Mexico spirit (Psalm 18:15), and He is coming against the Mexico spirit in Los Angeles.



Based on what we have shared over these 3 prophetic words, let us briefly review each paragraph in the prophetic word given to sister Weir:

  1. For denying God's sovereignty in His country, America must pay for embracing dark arts and other gods and idols. The devastation of New Orleans due to floodings and broken levees is nothing compared to God's coming wrath in this overflow of judgment. For the loss of God in schools, prayers, churches, meetings, the government and the courts, we will pay, and next is California [and] the South in general, a seat of sin and iniquity and injustice and intolerance as to the treatment of people of ethnicity other than Caucasian; and now, due to their dark practices of all the residents, practically, [it] is just the beginning. The devastation to come at [the] judgment of the Nations will stun all, more than New Orleans by Katrina.


    God has come against the spirit of Cain in the South and against the spirit of Balaam in New Orleans. He has come against the "Baals", the false "Balaamic" gods that the Church insists on worshiping (Isaiah 8:11-13, Jeremiah 8:4-6, Jeremiah 8:19).


  2. They all return yearly for their pagan lusts and pretense at religiosity, religious pageantry, and nothing really to do with God and Lent other than the names. They have nothing to do with Me, saith the Lord. It is man who believes he is god that all this debauchery is really about, making money, and harlots out of everyone. I do not call for drunkenness and nudity; hedonists do. I do not call for public nudity, wantonness, adulteries and fornications; idolaters do. I do not call for sin, the devil does, and New Orleans was glad to participate, all in the name of FUN. It will NOT be fun in HELL, says the Lord.


    There is no shame in New Orleans' behavior, and there is no shame in the Church's behavior. They are shamelessly after earthly blessings, and they have the gall to attach God's name to that pursuit (Jeremiah 8:7).


  3. The churches in New Orleans have all twisted God's Laws and Commandments, polluting His Gospel with outright lies and downright half-truths, just to make their congregations and the sinners not feel threatened and to feel GOOD. I will spew them all out of My Mouth, saith the Lord. They are worse than lukewarm; they are a foul stinking mass of pollution and maggots swimming in a pool of rotted flesh, the sick innards and guts of dead things, pretending to be holy and so full of sin and disgusting lies that I'll not tolerate it any longer. This is why New Orleans was flushed out like a toilet. The pollution of pretend catholic practices mixed in with black arts, voodoo and witchcraft, and then to call it "Lent" is an abomination and, not of Me, saith the Lord. This was the overflow of judgment for New Orleans and the start for America.


    God is coming against Cain, even after he morphs into Balaam in order to get the support of the people and avoid God's confrontational judgment. The Lord has come to expose the toilet throne upon which the Church's "ministers" sit, and He has come to expose their "froggy stench". The ministers' outer wrapping of "holiness" is being torn up to reveal the dead bones inside (Jeremiah 8:1-3).


  4. The churches in the area condoned this abomination, and, for not decrying their sins, they were judged along with them. The decay was done, and they did nothing, and they did not repent; confess and return to me with contrite hearts. They did not repent for their mishandling of these things from their pulpits and their lukewarm pretense at repentance not from contrite hearts. They are full of the black arts themselves, practicing it without a care or repentance, saith the Lord. Voodoo practiced openly and practically in the pulpits too, and they did nothing; it is an abomination. They are not even ashamed for their lack of doing anything and saying anything against it, so they all paid as well for their part in it.


    The Church keeps saying to herself, "We ain't done nothin' wrong; there is nothing we have done that is deserving of God's judgment", but the Church can no longer appeal to the "ignorance excuse", for the time of God's visitation has come (Jeremiah 8:8-9).


  5. God took away everything just as He said He would, this time by water, fire the next time. God didn't desert New Orleans; New Orleans deserted God and sought blackness for glory and reaped their just reward for choosing death and not life. Old and young alike, no one was spared death who were called to perish that day. Remember, says the Lord, you were given the choice, and you made yours, New Orleans; you were warned the last time and did not change. Your prayers came before Me, and I spared you. This time, you paid the price for disobedience. I Am coming soon, and for some, soon means today!!! Are you ready for eternity? Eternity is here, and it starts the moment you die.


    The Church is following after dead bones that have no eternity impartation (Jeremiah 8:1-3). Those who follow after dead bones will encounter death instead of life when God's true eternity is manifested before them.


  6. God's weeping for the suffering of some but not for all, as some knew what to do and did not do it. Not the government, not FEMA, but the churches, the ministers, bishops, priests, ministers and pastors, etc. in the area knew what I warned them and told them to do and did not do it. They know what My Word says and chose to ignore it, and New Orleans paid. California is next. Los Angeles, Hollywood, the hedonists there and their day of judgment overflow is near as well. Be holy and sin not; stop the sinning. Seek Me, and My Face will shine upon you. Repent, confess to Me and return to Me, and I will stay My Hand against you too this time. Return to your wickedness, and you will pay as well, says the Lord, and I'll not forgive nor forget that you did not keep your pledge.


    God is commanding His people to seek the death-causing Glory of His Face, not the blessings of His hands.


  7. Mudslides, an earthquake, a wildfire, a tsunami, what can California, Los Angeles especially, expect?? With all the 'pollution' Hollywood puts out, the pornographers, the idolaters, the hedonists, the abominations of same-sex anything; a true lifestyle it is not; it is a death sentence that I will pay, saith the Lord God Almighty.


    God shall bring judgment against the left-handed Canaanite and Hivite spirits that are so prevalent along America's "left coast". There is no right-handed Church making judgments against the "left coast", and those who do make judgments are trying to execute those judgments through human, fleshly means (Luke 22:35-38).


  8. As repentance now is not a Hollywood lifestyle or 'thing', will California be separated from the rest of America by an earthquake of mighty proportions. San Francisco and its blatant 'seediness', plus San Diego and all their atheistic activities and abomination parades, will undoubtedly put pressure on the fault lines all the way down the state. And all the counties all through California ratifying same-sex marriages, the clues all point to California next to being judged, harshly but rightly so by God, and soon. I am praying for the piece of California to remain attached and unharmed, but also that every evil person here be touched and washed in the Blood of Jesus Christ to help stop this devastation coming soon to an area where I live.


    The neighing of God's remnant believers are causing the earth to tremble (Jeremiah 8:16). As God's remnant is manifested, the very foundations of the earth shall also be shaken. God is coming to America, and those who reject the coming of His "lowly serpents" are rejecting Him, and they shall face the consequence of their actions (Psalm 60:1-12, Psalm 29:1-11).
