In early September 2004, shortly after the end of the Republican National Convention in New York, USA, the Lord spoke the following to my heart:
Bush: 7 out of 13
This is the prophetic interpretation:
The impression I received in my heart from this was that George W. Bush would win the 2004 U.S. presidential election over John Kerry by a 7-6 ratio. If applied to the popular vote, this would mean that George W. Bush will get 53.8% of the vote.
From a spiritual perspective, this means that John Kerry is a "6" while Bush is a "7". In Scripture, "6" is the number of "human weakness" or "man", since man was created on the 6th day, while "7" is the number of "spiritual completion", since the Lord completed His work on the 7th day. The number "7" also speaks of entering into the rest of the Lord, since the Lord rested on the 7th day.
By this, God is saying that Kerry is a man who believes in human methods and effort alone to get things done, while Bush believes in working for 6 days and resting in God on the 7th day. During the 7th day, God does the part of the work that no man can do in his natural strength.
"13And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 14The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." (Exodus 14:13-14)
[The people of Israel had walked all the way to the edge of the Red Sea; this is equivalent to working for "6 days". Now they could do nothing but rest in the Lord, trusting that He would manifest a power that no man could possibly produce. Only God could open the Red Sea and free them from the Egyptians. No amount of human effort could have saved them that day from being slaughtered by the Egyptian army.]
"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." (Ephesians 6:13)
Notice that both passages above start with verse 13.
