… these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.…These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever. It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones.
In the Church, shadows are diminishing, so with them shades of grey. They that love the shadows, and live in flickering casts of light, even in the spectrum of those variances… are they who love darkness. This is what we have before us in these days, gathering shadows going into the night, while the light of the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, surges ever brighter. Isaiah 60. I’ve said this once before in another publication and I’ll say it again, CHRIST Church will be astounded at who will walk out of darkness, right before their eyes, and greet them as they step into the Kingdom of God’s dear SON! At the same time we will be awestruck at those we thought we knew stepping out of that brightness, and glory, to fade into the night. The time has come and we are in it. Right in the middle of it.
Prayerfully, intercessors will delay some judgements earmarked for this coming fall, while a pressing disease will be battled at every portal and border seeking immunity of our immune system. Defying logic, we will make strides in immune system health but fail to carry this same design of defence over to our nation’s borders. This malignancy of profound blindness, coexisting with the all seeing electronic eye will continue to astonish those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear. There are no walls to breach, nor watchman to set them on, no stealth is needed to enter the lazy ports. The trespassers, who violate the law, have no inner restraints. Will they not easily join up with lawlessness that plagues the land, already?
If continual prayer and fasting does not prevail, this will be the enemy that hides among us. A foreign set of ideals to flare up against our own when we stand for those ideals in America. Likewise, and equally alarming, our foreign policy in the Middle East will need prayer, without end, throughout the spring of 2015 and beyond, as war looms on the horizon. This as the 100 year anniversary of World War I approaches us with a similar occurrence of a total eclipse due August 21, 2017 A Total Solar Eclipse similar to the one that tracked across the U.S., in the same way June 8, 1918. Just a few months after America’s entry in the war, and the onslaught of the Spanish Flu pandemic, that took over 500,000 American lives. Is America cycling into another pattern of wars and pandemics, accented by blood moons, and solar eclipses? Joel 2 …And there shall be signs in the heavens and the earth …
Two years and three months ago, in a dream that announced Obama’s second term, I saw Syria flare up in the Middle East and bleed into all the countries it has now, Turkey, Iraq, Iran. Even beneath, below, above, and side to side of it. While the American Bald Eagle found itself in the form of Obama, lying motionless on its back in the sand. This dream is how the Lord revealed to me that Mr. Obama would be elected a second term, which has been documented on various prophetic sites, just prior to his election. More recently, another prophetic marker mentioned in the article makes its appearance, this regards our foreign policy dealing with Cuba. Right after Cuba is seen in the dream, the American Bald Eagle in the Form of President Obama runs out toward the middle of the Middle East. You will have to click the link below to read about this prophetic dream. There you will see where we are at in the time line because of the mention of Cuba and the blow back we seem to be suffering regarding Libya’s Gaddafi, right now.
This for me, highlighted once again, the accuracy of this dream given to me October 17, 2012. Called Strange Bird Obama’s Second Term. As best as I could tell the time line for what could be a grave military failure, or, a foreign policy disaster taking place right in the center of the Middle East, is landing in the middle of President Obama’s second term. Because I believe (nourish the expectation) that God raises up intercessors to pray for governments and nations in order to save lives. He doesn’t give us dreams to entertain us. But, desires that we would partner with HIM in these end-times, for the saving of the lost. He did with Nineveh and Sodom and Gomorrah. The Spirit of the Lord let his friends in on what is coming, like He did with Abraham, who was a friend to God, and like Jesus did with His disciples warning them of the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. They were his disciples and companions.
God sent Jonah to warn Nineveh because HIS heart was moved with compassion over all the innocents in the land. They responded to Jonah’s preaching, and judgement was delayed. We are moving toward something so big, it is beyond our understanding; but, we know it intuitively. Surely, God does nothing with out revealing it to His prophets before hand. Many, still do not understand the gravity and responsibility of that privilege. Jesus told the disciples to pray their flight would not be in winter, for then tribulation like no other would be suffered, nothing like it ever known. Should we pray any less, for now the green tree has become dry?
Yet, we are those ones referred to by Daniel, (even those found through out the entire age of the Church) who did/ and shall do great exploits, that is THEY WHO KNOW THEIR GOD! Last week I specifically asked the Father to turn over certain high profile injustices that I felt fed-up with in my spirit. He answered that prayer so specifically, I could not deny that my intercession was heard by God in this matter. He is waiting for us to partnership with HIM and become a part of the 2nd Book of Acts, in these end-tiimes. We are seeing storms deferred, as well as draughts lifted, and crop yields improve, rather than fail as predicted. God is able to make a difference through us if we will stand up and be the Church Triumphant!! Amen and Amen.

Regarding the dream, Strange Bird, I believe that what I saw was correct; but, interpreting the vision correctly is often a challenge, that seers face. I know this for a fact- from Libya to Afghanistan and everything in between I saw this STRANGE BIRD wearing the same hats that we often have seen both Gahdaffi and Castro wearing, and now it is a little unsettling that many are accusing the presidency of the U.S. as a dictatorship. That would mean our foreign policy is that of a dictatorship, of sorts. It was that same hat the Strange Bird was wearing, in the dream of
October 17, 2012, when he landed flat on his back in the middle of this volatile region, silhouetted against a spreading conflict that was bleeding like water colours across the map from Syria, into Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and reaching for Kuwait …
The silhouette I described that I saw in the dream, lay there motionless with no one coming to help. Understand what was written in this article was over two years four months ago and published the November 5th 2012 and again January 2013. Prophetically describing much of what has transpired in 2014. Pray that our troops have nothing to do with what looks like a serious catastrophe for America in the Middle East. My prayer is that President Obama will not tread far beyond the authority of Congress and the will of the American people. For wisdom has many counsellors.
Of course, we should always pay what ever the cost to rescue our Christian family and the innocent from being slaughtered at the hands of the jackals roaming the haunts of Babylon; yet, we cannot strengthen the enemies of Israel, promote sexual perversion, and pre born infanticide among the nations, and expect our conduct to not move us away from the protective hand of God. Certainly, if our meddling with HIS land, and our influence among the nations work against HIM can we expect reprieve? What kind of judgement is it that we would be suffering loss from our own hardware in a land of so much conflict and uncertainty?
If we must involve ourselves and for humanity’s sake it seems that we must, it should be done with fear and trembling, with supplications, and humility, in our solemn assemblies. Family of God let us pray and repent of our sins, and intercede with out ceasing for America and our suffering brothers, and sisters, in this hour. Will we not be held accountable, oh watchman?
In your arrogance you were lifted up in your heart before all the nations. Ezekiel 31,32.

The Remnant Nation
Behold 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?
The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?
The Harbinger Bounty
In 1960 the Bounty was built in Nova Scotia for the 1962 film, Mutiny on the Bounty. It has also been used in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End. Still, it went down in the waves, known by all, as the Tall Ship Bounty. Her movie titles, alone, paint a prophetic picture that cannot be denied. They give credence to the suggestion that Bounty’s last tragic performance, cried out a warning as she made her final bow on the stage of America’s coastal waters.
The more I look into the details of Bounty, I cannot help but see a prophetic story behind the story, that suggest earnest warnings we can’t ignore. A symbolism of TITANIC proportions that lies with in its epic journey. (And I mean that literally since the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912, also, was said to have profound prophetic value.) Bounty’s unusual story begins with CHRISTIAN FLETCHER (who was Bounty’s Mutineer) naming his first born son THURSDAY OCTOBER. The child THURSDAY, was born October 14, 1790. It would be 222 years later, ON A THURSDAY IN OCTOBER, that the Ship would depart from its safe haven, from the New London harbour in Connecticut. An unlikely name to mark a departure 222 years in advance. That alone is a notable coincidence.
The Tall Ship rests as a side note to a storm far bigger than any she has ever faced.
Hurricane Sandy, in her own right, holds parallels of the storm to come that will trouble our own waters, if we don’t act on warnings that the SPIRITUAL LIGHT HOUSES in the land, are trying to convey to a sleepy nation. To see it for yourself I will give you the keys. But, first read my story. After that, research on your own and see if you cannot discern the prophetic warning crying out to us from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean 90 miles southeast of of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Bounty Sailed off, that fateful day, from New London which is graced with great beacons of its own, along the coastline. Only to falter in the waters of America’s largest brick lighthouse four days later. Christian America, are we not houses of light? Are we not sounding the alarm loud enough, shining our light bright enough?
Again, it was a THURSDAY in OCTOBER, the 25th of 2012, just days before the election that Bounty set sail from the Harbour of New London, Connecticut, to avoid what it fell into, headlong, in an attempt to “skirt” the storm. I wonder, should America leave her proverbial harbours, in a weakened economy, to toss in the torrents of what many are predicting could lead us into World War III? You see, it was Bounty’s failed generators that sealed her demise while she tossed, vicariously, in a whirlwind of unprecedented circumstances. Will America’s economic generators fail her in the storms of the Sand? So much like The Tall Ship Bounty trying to skirt the squalls of the Frankenstorm Sandy, that we can equate to the opening theatre of World War III.
The etymology of Sandy meaning- “In the Nature of the Sand” Remember, Governor Christy tried to re-build after Sandy hit, and that effort burned down. The fire was due to faulty electrical wiring from the previous structure. IF THE FOUNDATION IS BROKEN WHAT CAN THE PEOPLE DO? How about a national day of repentance before we arrogantly decide to rebuild? Look what we are facing in the land of sand, if we don’t step back, humble ourselves and seek God? I’m speaking to Christian America, mind you. After building our lives with out a moral compass to see us through our storms we run headlong into one far more menacing, with far more lives at stake. Truly, as the parable warns not to do … WE have done it any way. Jesus plainly warned us not to build our house on the sand, rather, Jesus said, “Build your house on the ROCK.” America, could you have not put your trust in Christ?
Two years later, the story of the Tall Ship Bounty continues to parallel as a HARBINGER of things to come, if we do not heed the prophetic warnings voiced in her tragic demise. The beautiful replica of a ship whose sails proudly billowed in the sea breezes of years gone by, is now a story, fully supplied with the cargo of prophetic detail cautioning us not to flirt with a WORLD WIDE tempest, while our economic engines, and generators are failing.
BOUNTY’S story is a sign, paralleling AMERICA’S Economy in her tragic story. A fatal decision is made to move the TALL SHIP BOUNTY out to sea, in order to avoid what is titled THE STORM OF THE CENTURY, but instead of going around it, the TALL SHIP BOUNTY is steered into the path of the HURRICANE SANDY. Later it is reported that the engine, and the generator, that pumped water from her hull, both failed.
Bounty took on water and sank beneath the crew. Taking with her, a direct descendant of the original BOUNTY’S mutineer, and her captain. The weakened economic engines of AMERICA and the GENERATORS that are failing her, will not support the unpredictable path of what is to come. Will we heed the WARNINGS? WILL AMERICA’S OARSMEN STEER her headlong into STORMS she will not be able to survive? (Ez.27) Shall HER BOUNTY SINK BENEATH THE WAVES? See the incredible parallels of BOUNTY’S History and warnings out of EZEKIEL 27. WOULD THAT BOUNTY HAD RESTED IN NEW LONDON’s harbour, the cradle of former awakenings. Link below.
Did the humbling of our American leaders who were steering us headlong into the Syrian conflict come as an answer to our prayers, the last time around?
What secrets are hidden in the wisdom of Bounty’s prophetic counsel, that is directly tied to Ezekiel 27? Should America take the beating of her bountifulness, with in her own harbours, rather than facing off the storms of the SAND?
Does the story of Fletcher Christian parallel the generational fruition of the seeds of mutiny?
Can patriotic Christian America humble herself before God?Are there foundational errors and arrogances Christian America need to own up to?Fletcher (seller of arrows) Christian Bounty’s Mutineer. Will Christian America repent for selling out her arrows (Children) even her posterity for the purposes of that which is the nature of the SAND?
Psalm 127:3-5 Children are as arrows, Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14
…”If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. “Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.…
Following that prophetic marker regarding the seller of arrows, should America have ever sold our weapons to unstable characters in the Middle East? Is that ever wise? Where is the wisdom of God, America? Will her own war arrows defeat her efforts in the middle east, as her economic generators fail? America, repent turn back to the harbour. The region of your former awakenings. Pray for Jerusalem, that she would have peace. Stop murdering your pre-born children, feed, clothe, and shelter Christ himself, who is our brethren, near and far. Be a rescuer, not a fool in wars with the haters of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Only God can unravel what you have done, He is able.
NEXT: Let’s move on to the next page with these three keys. 1. The Tall Ship Bounty represents America, blessed. 2. The Sandy Hurricane represents the War of the Century. 3. The Captain of the Bounty represents the American Infrastructure, both in counsel and form. All other prophetic parallels and markers have been identified.
Hear what the spirit says to those who call themselves The people of God in America. I have a people who call out to me day and night. They truly weep at my feet and are covered under my shadow at the alter, in the place of intercession, many of them have answered the call, have forsaken all, to follow my instruction in these the end-times. No election of candidates will change what America is facing in her tomorrows. Repentance, only, will extend the hand of the Father to pass mercy across this land, he is able to turn the face of kings, as well as harden the hearts of the Pharaohs. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. What are the words spoken out of the mouth of the shepherds in the land? Will slander, mockery, and the blaming of others turn the tide?
The First Church Of The Free Born
But, yet there is an unrepentant, religious, and prideful people, who walks the broad path of what is called Christian America, today.
I saw the rubble of a building in the fore front, a city scape in the back drop, and between the two- a storm beaten Statue of Liberty. An arm from heaven reached down and took the hand of a little boy out of the rubble, and The Lord said, “See this thing that you have done? The thing that has been broken in America is not being understood by the natural eye, for though this people have greatly prospered, and have acquired much wealth and comfort, they are a broken and plundered people, their children, if they could see, stand a midst the rubble of broken lives, broken families, and broken homes. What has become of those I have appointed to be Fathers in the Land? Worse yet, what has befallen the Shepherds? The curse of dismemberment plagues the land, the children are increasingly covered with a spirit of violence, says The Lord, you have wanted everything, and have paid the price to obtain it! The price you have paid is your posterity.
If you could see what you have come to, where your children are standing alone, in the rubble of a nation, that has everything, but possesses nothing … Yet, as I have said, my arm is not shortened that it cannot save; nor, is my ear heavy that I cannot hear, for I am hearing the cry of the Fatherless in this nation, and with my own arm of strength I am reaching for them, says The Lord, for they are the generation that will know the cost for the selling of the souls of men. Yet, I have called them by the name that I have named them, and they will look up from where they sit, and they shall find me, my hand extended, in the day that I can be found. I will lead them as a father would lead them, they shall be my sons, and my daughters, and I shall be their father.
For I am a father to the fatherless, and a husband to the widow, says The Lord. You have created a nation of orphans, and a land full of widows of the living dead. You war against me still, and you say how have I warred against you, lord? I sent forth the spirit of Elijah into the land, to turn the fathers heart towards the children, that your children may learn the way of FATHER, but you have resisted me, says The Lord, who died that you might live, and whose WORD now lives, that you might not die. Rather, you sacrifice the future of your own in order to protect your comforts for the day. Why do you continuously ( without remorse) sacrifice your sons and your daughters to the god of temporary pleasures? Over, and over again, while being the most civilized, of the civilized, in your eyes?
You have spent your seed for sowing upon your own pleasures, what then shall come to you in the day of harvest? Have you not sowed to the wind? Shall you not reap the whirl wind? Is it not written a GOOD MAN leaves an inheritance to His children’s children? What then is the one called who sells the child of his child to servitude, some not yet born? Shall he escape this shame? Will not the lender stop his lending, and demand the borrower to pay? Shall they not liquidate the future, to satisfy the appetites of yesterday? Does not the house do as the hill, and the hill the same as the house? So you say it is those upon the hill that does these things, but are not those upon the hill the same who live in houses, did they not first come out of your neighbourhoods, and communities? They serve themselves first, as you in your homes the same, at the expense of their child’s future, for enough is never enough to satisfy, as fire is never satisfied, nor rage, nor lust.
Therefore, your elected ones reflect you. So then, shall this one who fattened himself upon his child’s tomorrow not Himself be in want? Shall he not regret the price he paid for those things that last not, the price of his own sons, and daughters? Have I not given you time to repent? Both small, and great, says the Lord, but you would not? You quoted all the right scriptures, wrote your books, held your meetings, financed your campaigns, to bring AMERICA BACK TO GOD, you tussled in your homes, at city hall, and in your town square pointed your finger and beat your chest, a patriot, of patriots you say, yet in all of this did you personally confess the error in your own heart? Did you humble yourself to seek it out, to find what you cannot see, unless you humbly enquire of me? Yet, touched by these things, rather, you rage. This one thing, you will lie down in regret. Repent, says The Lord, and I will give you your children to honour your memory. That they may see, in the end, you did all that you could do.
I will not have you deceived, repentance will not reinstate to you what you would esteem as your former glory; it will however, provide for you the reward that comes with the testing of your faith, more precious than gold. I can promise you the process of the baptism of fire. Turn to me now, see? See? Even the generation that watched out for you, built for you, shall you even tax for your salacious appetites, to keep your status quo? So you rob from the future, and drain the store, to have your fill for the day?
Repent and I will sustain you, for the benefit of your children’s children, a generation who will know my name, my arm of strength, and power, if you repent, this one thing you shall then have, the joy of your children with you, the sons and daughters, of your sons, and your daughters, who play upon the floor where you rest your feet, whom, themselves, shall pay regard to how you finished the end of your days. For in your best days a common thing shall be in the land, one house hold shall house three. Hear what the Spirit of The Lord says, that I may walk you out of your errors, this day, not that you become as you were. But, that you be counted as the wise who made a difference when your story is told, among those who will come after you. Whose HERITAGE will be of me, says The Lord.
A prayer to start with:
Father in Heaven, I come before you to acknowledge my sins that I have committed along with those that have trespassed against you in this great nation, that the people were given stewardship to manage, so many years ago. Father, somehow, we have lost our nation into the hands of another. Our elected ones that come from our neighbourhoods, our communities, and our cities, have turned our country the wrong way, time after time. I come before you and repent for all that I had part in, in America turning its back on you, and the Godly principles we were to uphold. Even in the sin of omission when I didn’t do those things that I could have done, to insure our good standing with you, as a people. I repent of all my ways that has acted in unison with all citizens of this country who have missed the mark, in securing your blessing upon our land. I ask that you show me what I can do as an act of true repentance, that I mean this prayer with all my heart. I pledge to continue to pray for all those in authority who are governing this great nation. I, also, pledge to NOT be one of those who stand as a mocker, slanderer, or a false witness; nor, a flatterer, or given over to the praise of men. But, will endeavour to speak the truth in love, at all times, and obey the Spirit to walk with Him, through all the days he has ordained for me, as a citizen of the Kingdom of God, on this soil. Amen
An Ancient Pilgrimage Genesis 24
Keep an account of Her. Her going out and HER coming in. Watch her as you watch for HIM, more. THE one chosen, the one HE loves. The called out for, to have and to Hold. Whom he ransomed for a GREAT price. See her, how she has made herself ready. The one, as the story is told, whom GOD spoke of. HIS servant met HER at the well. She drew for him of the DEEP waters. THE ONE chosen by the Father. Whom was pre KNOWN; kin of HIS KIND.
The one LAUGHTER, He HAS gone down now, at evening tide before they arrive.
She lifts up her eyes and sees HIM, there is a catch in her breath as the bride enquires of the servant (as she has already lit off the camel) “Who is this?” She asks, the servant replies, “This is my sovereign.”
The original HEBREW words of this story of ISAAC and REBEKAH paint a beautiful encounter. The sun is setting as Isaac walks out into the field to meditate. It is reasonable to believe this was something he did quite often. This time, He saw coming an entourage of camels, the servant, and his servant’s, servants. The bride, her nurse, and maidens. The Hebrew word for damsels suggest children of an unknown age from infancy to adolescence, the root meaning is not necessarily female, but rather child servants. Boys and Girls. Rebekah, the delightful young woman that she was, revealed her personality at the well where she met, and accommodated Abrahams servant, and his camels, with their fill of water. We can draw a safe conclusion that Rebekah was full of life, very engaging, hospitable, and played the big sister to the less fortunate of those around her. After all, the well was the place to be for a lovely girl like Rebekah. No doubt, her little brood of admirers were gathered in the entourage, to accompany Rebekah; to grow up as her servants in the household, and shadow of the renown dwelling among the nomadic, unmistakably identifiable, even from a distance, the place of refreshing, benevolence, and hospitality … The house, the mobile city known as SARAH’S Tent.
Sarah’s tent, renown and honored (as the original language of the scriptures describe) seemed to be more than just a dwelling among nomads. It is a picture of New Jerusalem. Sarah’s tent was a sight to be seen as soon as it came in view, gauged against the horizon.
The original Hebrew wording gives us this picture of their first encounter. Rebekah sees Isaac and the scriptures says she lited off the camel, truer to the original language, she actually dismounted the camel so enthralled and focused upon Isaac that she sort of fell into her dismount, and then regained her composure, while learning from the servant (who is a type and shadow of the Holy Ghost) that the man Rebekah sees standing in the field to greet them is her beloved. She then veiled herself in order to be identified as the one whom Father Abraham had sent for. Of all who stood before him, the veil signified his bride as the ONE among the them who were free born. Another picture in type and shadow, that Rebekah was there of her own freewill, as all are, in Christ.
The account of Rebekah’s response reveals a sense of dignity and pedigree, after the servant confirmed what her heart already knew, she immediately pulls together her covering garments for modesty, after her unassisted dismount; at the same time, the Hebrew words describe she covered the hollows of her form, and stood up to present herself as any lady would, modestly, yet purposely, plumping the folds of the garment to give hint of her femininity; as, one commentary suggested. It is also mentioned in another commentary that she postrated herself before Isaac as Abigail did David; however, the brief passage leaves that open for discussion. It is a gesture beyond what is required but who would deny her that response? The next scene (we are told) is when Isaac takes Rebekah into his mother’s tent and was then comforted from Sarah’s death.
Sarah’s name broken down in pictograms of the ancient Hebrew alphabet contains a “hidden” name or description of Sarah’s life; it reads like this: “The one who saw two great destructions.” This enables us to look at Sarah whose name directly means princess, as a type and shadow of that Kingdom abode, from where the scripture says “Only with thine eyes shall you see the reward of the wicked.” From a distance only, did Sarah see the smoke of Sodom and Gomora, as it will be for those who rest in that heavenly ECONOMY of hospitality, and benevolence; wrapped in the arms of a greater promise that that of Abraham. This world’s two great destructions- one by water, and the other by fire, will become a distant memory as the old order of things pass away, and all things become new. Sarah’s passing takes with her the memory of the sorrows of this world.
This ending the picture of Christ meeting His Church, the Sojourning Bride, safely handed over to Him, by the guide of all guides; even, the precious Holy Spirit that completed His work. The lovely lady, was kept in His unbroken custody to present before the Kings of Kings, and Lord of Lords; His bride, by Her own free will. Her and her entourage, forever. Her personal servant with her, a nurse named Deborah, accompanied her in her journey. The Hebrew name Deborah is translated bee which also, means word. So there you have it, a perfect picture of the bride of Christ brought to Him, safely, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, with the assistance of the WORD OF LIFE.
Beloved, are we not in that procession this day? Bearing gifts of His own? Onyx stones, and bracelets, little bells upon the priestly hems, and ankles … surely, she has anointed herself with HIS oils and perfume. This journey is a progressive procession of joy, of righteousness, and truth, in the Holy Ghost. This is the BRIDE who made herself ready, who meets Him at the well. Escorted daily in His accommodations, held in His sacred trust, with the WORD OF LIFE in attendance.
Song of Solomon 6:9-10 (ESV)
My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her. Who is this who looks down like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners?”
Song of Songs
“Listen! I hear my love! Look! Here he comes! He’s leaping across the mountains. He’s coming over the hills.
The one who loves me is like an antelope or a young deer. Look! There he stands behind our wall. He’s gazing through the window. He’s peering through the screen. He said to me, ‘Rise up, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one. Look! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone.
Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come.
The cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig trees are producing their early fruit.
The flowers on the vines are giving off their sweet smell.
Rise up and come, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one.’”
..And the SPIRIT and the BRIDE call out, come now! Even come Lord Jesus!
The tie that binds “LOVED”
A pod cast from NeWine Pouring
Several weeks ago the Lord opened my eyes once again to the Red River Nation as it passed before me in a vision, this time I saw my self wearing peasant clothes, I looked up and saw the Lord instruct the reins of a horse to be handed to me. I was then handed banners, one for my clan, a banner for my tribe, and the crimson banner depicting the Holy Race, that banner was raised up to join the others above the procession, creating a crimson red river from the eagles eye view. Jesus looked to me and said, “You have nothing because you wanted nothing, other than this that has been in your heart all these many years.” At that my eyes were open to the fact that I was in this mobile assembly coursing through the land, moving through out all nations. We are in it already, I believe, and where ever it takes us it will sometimes be seen and sometimes un seen, as if to move in and out of the shadows of the great rock mountain. For many the reports of it, will be described as just the rumblings of thunder, many others will here the voice of the Lord compelling them to come, they will know where to meet and join her, intuitively. It is my conviction to be aware that it is a moving breathing assembly of the gathered, in the spirit, after the order of Melchizedek, who was a type and shadow of Jesus of whom we are (his body) – as Christ is so are we in the earth! From where does this procession come? Where is it going? We will only “fully know” when we get there, then shall we fully understand. This is my take on it, so far, and I know that in this life we look through it all as it were, through stained and tinted glass, and we should always remember:
John 3:8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
This word has come through many different venues but the jest of it is- A camp-out in the tradition of the festival of booths, shall manifest momentarily, the assembly, out from the shadows of the big rock mountain. A well spring of glory shall flood the land and carry the remnant like a river current, out to sea, and a great thrust of gathering will spill out into all nations from this place among many, this high place, this mountain-top of seeking, a place from where rivers are made.
In Christ we are parts to a whole.
Who we are may not always be understood. The hand with out the elbow is useless. These two parts alone have no similarity, or commonality with one another. They are worlds apart in likeness. Yet their relevance or use to the body is contingent upon both parts working together. Co-operation is required to each one’s own success. This is representative of two very different personality traits, and callings that would never give honor one to another, or minister to each others needs, with out revelation knowledge. Know no man after the flesh, but after the spirit …

Isaiah 9:2-7 (The Message) The Message The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings. The abuse of oppressors and cruelty of tyrants— all their whips and cudgels and curses— Is gone, done away with, a deliverance as surprising and sudden as Gideon’s old victory over Midian. The boots of all those invading troops, along with their shirts soaked with innocent blood, Will be piled in a heap and burned, a fire that will burn for days! For a child has been born—for us! the gift of a son—for us! He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings. He’ll rule from the historic David throne over that promised kingdom. He’ll put that kingdom on a firm footing and keep it going With fair dealing and right living, beginning now and lasting always. The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies will do all this.

Prayer Journal 3/8/2013
Asia on my heart and mind today, the sleeping giant has been waking and with that an “awakening”. The Lord showed me an army of Asian intercessors praying- for China and Southeast Asia, still remembering a “sea of hands” lifted up in praise to God in Indonesia. Mongolia geologically erupts, and Russia shakes, again awakenings and humanitarian aid flows into isolated places, with it shafts of light … A stirring in North Korea-What seems impossible with men is possible with God. I see a man carrying a shepherd’s rod through the rural lands of North Korea, the Shepherd is among his people, seeking and gathering the flock. The heart of the Father is moving through the land, he captures the heart of broken sons and daughters. God will open up North Korea, when he does we will be astounded at what is rock, and what is river flowing in the caverns of the deep, so much mighty movement beneath statuesque strongholds. (For His mercy endures forever, and He hears the cries of the oppressed.)

Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
Anywhere you look in the new testament where witchcraft (a work of the flesh) is trying to embed itself in the church, or among those who are in leadership, or a move of God, you will see it dealt with forth right. No one is left to themselves to work it out. Especially, where deception is involved. The slave girl who had a spirit of divination (python) where the Apostle Paul commands it to come out, didn’t even get the benefit of counsel before he directly took authority over that spirit that sought to defile their work in Philippi.
I think Paul understood the backlash that would come when he dealt with something that controlled the city, and would rather have not “rattled the cage” to get some work done; but, at some point he recognized python’s operation, unchecked, would only serve “it” in the end, for the people would then think that the spirit of the slave girl, and the spirit of the apostle, and his works, were one. Paul did what needed to be done. For a while he suffered for it, but great power was awarded the move of God in that city for what he stood up to. Climaxing into an earthquake that shook loose chains of the imprisoned, and set them free. This is the end result for having a back bone, and standing up against a spirit that masks itself as “acceptable” to move and operate among us.
Taking authority over the spirit of divination (python) will restore the power and effectiveness of the Gospel over the regions it has control over, but brace yourself for the craziness that will unearth when exposed … See Acts 16. Speaking of turning a city upside down … Yet, worth the ride to see the mighty hand of God work mightily among us, in our fellowships, ministries, cities, and even in nations, that have been under such control. When python seeks to infiltrate a work (moving in like the snake that it is) there is nothing more that can be done but to face it head on. Python is not for the faint of heart. In fact, as you can see in Paul’s experience the accusations began to fly. Yet, greater is he (Christ) that is in us then he that is in this world! For it is written that no weapon formed against us shall prosper, every tongue that rises up in judgement shall be condemned or proven wrong. This is your inheritance IN Christ, so come what may, in the end, all will be well and our hands free of blood guilt for dutifully warning. God will restore His power where defeat, and powerlessness, has taken hold.
The Silent Killer
Python is a serpent, like any snake it is a silent killer that suddenly appears, and when it does we need to be instant in season and out, ready to take authority over its power. The ultimate assignment of Python is to squeeze, swallow and destroy. The most disturbing victim of python are new moves of the Spirit of God and new converts. Like all snakes serpents eat eggs, new beginnings are destroyed, when a spirit of python is at large, underdeveloped Christians, and callings are swallowed up, by the demon spirit python. The carnage of premature deaths are left in python’s wake, while the nest of new beginnings are plundered. The Church should be an un-penetrable nest where destinies develop. Another manifestation of Python is the squeezing out of spiritual life and suffocation of spiritual gifting; a rendering of powerlessness, and paralyses of ministry, and good works. Despair, disparagement, hopelessness, and spiritual darkness, envelope as python swallows its prey into increasing darkness; eventually, methodically, digesting the call, and purposes of God in his victims life. The Good news is that God often brings a rash of wake up calls to shake us awake, for He is always at work on our behalf desiring that no man should perish. A stern word is a blessing, a severe warning the same. What ever it takes. He is the author and finisher of our faith, if we are on the wrong path he will work on our behalf, it is not always a sunny day when God works, but it is always a bright and shining one.
When we as Christians (who are the temple of the Holy Ghost) open the ports of our eyes, ears, and sensual courses, to unholy, displays of darkness, drawing upon those things to entertain us, we invite demons to influence, and defile, the sacred altar of our heart. This is us releasing our free will over to spiritual darkness that begins to access what ever reach of authority one has to defile others. If that authority has access to the pulpit, to teach, preach, and lead worship- Python then begins to signal Leviathan the King of all the Sons of Pride to divide from the congregation the deliverers as the twisting spirit then promotes all that is vile and wicked. While the true move of the spirit is suffocated, and what was begun by God is taken over by a spirit of divination, drawing attention to itself, as it perpetuates its supernatural powers, with the stamp of christian approval; seemingly, saying all the right things, just as the damsel did in Paul’s time. The position and influence one has that is defiled by a spirit of divination opens the door to seduce and oppress those under them. To the depth we have walked in spiritual awareness, warfare, and gifting, so to that degree shall this defilement occupy and displace the anointing with a counter kind. In this condition what ever place or platform we have been given becomes devalued by the powers of a lesser being. To gain back taken ground, the spirit of python must be exposed and there is no other recourse but to face it at all cost. Can poison and good waters pour as one? No they cannot, they should not, but in the human vessel they can for a season, until the finger of God brings judgment to those vessels for mixing the holy with the unholy, and causing defilement in the midst of the people.
The Message (MSG)
“But why do you let that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet mislead my dear servants into Cross-denying, self-indulging religion? I gave her a chance to change her ways, but she has no intention of giving up a career in the god-business. I’m about to lay her low, along with her partners, as they play their sex-and-religion games. The bastard offspring of their idol-whoring I’ll kill. Then every church will know that appearances don’t impress me. I x-ray every motive and make sure you get what’s coming to you.
Entwined In Two Spiritual Streams.
We often think that witchcraft approaches us in black hats and green haze.Not so, would that it did, so many now would not be deceived! But, what the Church is dealing with now days is starting to look the ugly that it is. In contrast, the spirit of divination is deceptively presented by those who have willfully, or stupidly, defiled themselves with the occult, and have spoon fed it to the masses from Church pulpits and platforms. Eventually, what you will see at our alters (and all ready do even now) is not of God, but a form of palatable divination for one purpose, and that is to spread it undetected. Paul, in the 16th chapter of Acts became grieved in his spirit. Though the slave girl was proclaiming the truth, and publicly acknowledging God as the most high, yet she made her master money by soothsaying. Her life was intertwined in two spiritual streams.
We cannot serve two masters, bitter and sweet water should not come out of one vessel. Gazing into evil by being a follower of a television program, a series of movies, or books that glorifies the occult, and sexual immorality, and then turn around and participate in worship or prayer services in Church is “mixing” the occult with worship. It is a Baal Christianity! Baal – Hebrew meaning: One who swallows. Notice that when Jesus warned the 7 churches in revelation to repent he mentioned, Baalam, (he who swallows the people) and the teachings of the Nicolaitions (destroy or conquers the people) and the sexually immoral and promiscuous Jezebel (one who exalts Baal who is he who swallows). All these spirits work in our churches today, all of them tied into python, who is under Leviathan (the sea serpent) the twister among the masses- the king of all the sons of pride. Isaiah 27:1 the twisting spirit. Job 41:1-34 What do serpents do? They BITE, SQUEEZE, SWALLOW, and there by DESTROY their PREY. Jesus hates what these deceivers do to His Church and will destroy them, he will put out into utter darkness those who are their followers, and practitioners, and they will have their part in the lake of fire. Revelation 21:8
Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
John 9:4 What to do? Whosoever, calls upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved!! Call upon him while he may be found. We must work in the day while it is daylight, for the night comes where no man can work.
Eventually, we will have to go to bed in the condition we are in as night falls around us, and we have allowed our candle to be replaced by a false light, dimming as darkness grows. Those who can work in the night are the ones who have the light in them.
Luke 11:34-35 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. In another place We will be known by our fruits, not every one that says Lord, Lord, enters into the kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of my Father. Beloved, believe not every spirit …
NO greater love is this that a man lays his life down for his friends. At the point that we are willing to lose the love of our friends, and for that matter our family, to speak the truth to them in love, though the truth is not loved, and they choose to abandon us, it is in the hope that God’s word does not return void … but will continue to work on them that they will choose the way of life, and in it find their path steady, and may even pray for us, or help one day, when we fall down … isn’t it better to lose a friend for a moment, because we told them the truth, in order that we might gain a brother or sister for eternity?
Galatians 5:19-21 (NKJV) Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Hating Even the Garment SPOTTED by the flesh.
The scripture is very clear on what kind of activity warrants what kind of action, there are behaviors we ignore and let others work out their wrinkles and there are behaviors we approach with correction, somehow the church has let discipline go, and any correction is a shock to the system. People are so use to feel good everything, they can’t handle it. A mature leadership will know when more teaching is required, or when patience is needed, or when a shout of warning will save a life, or a yank on the shirt collar keeps them from a snake pit. Understanding that these are forms of mercy. Don not most of us respond appropriately, naturally, when warning some one of danger? How is it that a bit of truth now days is treated like it was an ax let loose on a doll house? I think we need to check how we feel when we hear the truth in warning, and measure it, not on how it was given, but how we have a problem receiving “hard sayings”. Asking ourselves why our reactions are the way they are. Perhaps what we differentiate between a tug and a beating (of the flames off our back) is dependent upon how much darkness we have allowed to envelop in our lives. Head lights in the drive way are not as harsh to the eyes, when standing in the sun. It takes more adjustment for our eyes, while standing in utter darkness. Often times it is not the message that is abrupt, but the condition it finds us in when we hear it, that’s affronted.
Acts 13:10 sorcery trying to undermine the work of the Holy Spirit.
Jude 1: 23 I love you enough, I will risk being burned.
Jude 1:4 grace of God turned into a license for immorality.
Revelation 22:14-15 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs,[unclean] those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
America is on a track into her destiny, and come what may, the triumphant church moves forward in stark contrast against America’s storms, manifesting His light in ever-increasing darkness.
“… We cannot say we are a righteous people. America has sinned, and has sown to the wind …” Billy Graham 1/20/1993
Bill Clinton inauguration. We thought we were reaping the winds we have sown into- all these years, but we have had many days of prosperity since the Clinton administration, where Billy Graham spoke these words. Much grace, much mercy, much given us to do the right thing, but there comes a time for harvest, when all that we have sown shall come to its fullness. The good, the bad, and the ugly. We are just days into President Obama’s second term, whose elections were marred by the tragedy of both Sandy Hook, and the Sandy hurricane. Both violent whirlwinds of destruction. Just yesterday “out of season” tornadic storms ripped across the Southeast, our own town under tornado warnings.
The Lord gave me a prophetic dream regarding the second term of president Obama that I have finally finished, after much prayer and waiting. When a nation has moved away from God, the only thing it has going for it, is the prayer of the intercessors. That is why we pray, we bind and loose, and cover our neighborhoods in prayer, pleading the blood of Jesus. We have literally seen the storms break up, and move around our little town, over, and over, again. This is our time to be the answer (that not even the government) could ever provide.
The Body of Christ in Apostolic authority is where refuge shall be for those who seek to come out of the darkness, and into the light. He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide in the shadow of the almighty. Not only shall we rest in HIS shadow, but in HIM we shall also “cast HIS shadow” for the lost to dwell in.
Years of the Whirlwind.
