Report From The Tower
I was waking up this morning and my mind was clear and at peace. Suddenly, the Lord spoke and said:
"The double judgements will take on the characteristic of being double in a variety of ways. One way will be that they will have fulfilled a particular prophetic scripture twice."
I pondered on this and on the applicable scriptures for awhile and I began to smile, for suddenly, my mind was opened regarding why the Lord has had me working so hard over the last month to complete the four part Revelation Puzzle series and the Revelation Spreadsheet Analysis Tool. . The Lord even had me hitting close to this fact that He revealed to my mind today when I was finishing up writing the Revelation Puzzle-Part 4 (The Great Earthquake) 09/25/2017.
I had written, near the end of that article, that "the scripture clearly says that fulfilled events do repeat: that which has been before is that which shall be again (Ecclesiastes). Jesus even mentioned that Daniel's prophecy regarding the abomination would be repeated. I believe that when we fail to identify those things that are past, we are less likely to correctly identify those things that are still future. I leave open the possibility that God might decide to fulfill one or more of these Revelation signified events in another, perhaps wider way, at the consummation of all things. Alfred Edersheim, in his seminal work, "The Life And Times Of Jesus Of Nazareth", p592, argued that "perhaps the most valuable element in Rabbinic excommentation on Messianic times is that in which, as so frequently, it is explained, that all the miracles and deliverances of Israelís past would be re-enacted, only in a much wider manner, in the days of the Messiah. Thus the whole past was symbolic, and typical of the future.""
Truly, the Holy Spirit had me hitting all around today's word without coming right out and saying it. One way that events will be regarded by God as a double judgement is that they will fulfill some scripture that has already been fulfilled! Wow! It was hidden, right there in front of me, but this morning, things are becoming a great deal clearer.
This further explains the truly enigmatic Revelation 18:6
"Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double."
Now, we can see why the Holy Spirit was drawing such attention to the word "double" by using it three times. These things will be doubled in a variety of ways: even unto three ways. Yes, they will be many fold worse and perhaps much more than double in severity, yet double in terms of time proximity and double in terms of where they strike and also now double because they fulfill a scripture for a second time. So potentially, an event might be a "double" in three different ways! I can see the many fold multiplied value now of the four part Revelation Puzzle series the Lord just had me complete, for how can one think to understand and see all future events and recognize each of them as a "double" if he has no understanding of the historical fulfillment?
I believe the double judgements are drawing very near. I have recently written about two likely double judgements that appear to be coming into their season: the Youngbrandt-Chicago earthquake prophecy of 1972 and the Mivule-Asteroid burst over Chief's Arrowhead Stadium, given in 2005. This is all happening when, one by one, those who have carried forth prophecy and who have warned people about prophetic words are beginning to doubt that God speaks to man. The preponderance of false prophets and failed predictions has had such a quenching effect on the Rt. Rev. Robert S. Biermann, who had been one to give a forum to some prophetic messages. This Anglican bishop had been warning for three years from the Okeechobee, FL based short wave station on his weekly broadcast of "The Weekend Show". His latest program reveals that he has retreated back to the head in sand approach of other denominational ministers, where he stated that "we are all going to be caught as a thief in the night by these judgements".
God expects his people to separate the sheep from the goats! We must recognize true prophetic messengers and true messages and cast out those false words. None of you need be troubled by the recent false warning regarding some ridiculous end of the world prediction stated to be coming on September 23. Three times, the scripture assures us that we are living in a "world without end". God is simply treating us just as He treated Israel before us. Jeremiah was so terribly concerned about the proliferation of false prophets in his day, yet God was utterly unconcerned. He knew who the false prophets were. They would be destroyed AND THOSE WHO LISTENED TO THEM WOULD BE DESTROYED!
Jer 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. Jer 14:16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.
Listen to the true messages. Ignore the false ones. Walk in the light and you will not be caught as a thief in the night by these things that must come upon our people and our world. (1 Thessalonians 5:2-9) The double judgements are not to be poured upon merchants, or upon kings or upon nations. The double judgements are to be poured upon BABYLON THE GREAT. She is a great harlot. She is a mother of daughter harlots. She is a murderer of the Saints and the followers of Jesus. She is a religious system, centered at Rome. She has daughters! These double judgements will pour until all the elements of the mother and daughter harlots have been utterly destroyed.
Does this day find you as a tithe paying member to a local church? Does that church more or less require you to tithe by telling you that you are robbing God if you do not turn that tithe over? If so, you are a member of a daughter harlot church! The idea for turning tithing into a law for the members of the church originated with the Church of Rome. Does this day find you submitting to a Senior Pastor? If so, you are a member of a daughter harlot church! The full embodiment of the doctrine of the preeminence of one man over the Laity found its' place in the Church of Rome. Reformation merely substituted the Senior Pastor for the Priest. Does this day find you serving in a church where true prophecy is never discussed and true prophets never take the pulpit to deliver warnings? If so, you are a member of a daughter harlot church! Come out of her, My people, is the word of the Lord to you. Are you a member of a church where you are taught that God does not speak any more to His people but that He had finished speaking once the bible was completed? If so, come out of such a place, says the Lord. The double judgements are set, decreed and released to fall upon all such daughter harlot churches. The nation and the people will be caught up in the terrible events that will come to pass, but the reason these double judgements will have been sent; the fault for it all; will lie at the feet of God's rebellious people.
Postscript from October 9, 2017
I sat before the Lord this morning and asked the Lord to show me something from the scripture that I did not know. He complied and caused me to notice my bible, opened before me to Jeremiah 49. I tracked back from that point to Jeremiah 45, where I began my reading for the day, but the Lord did not reveal anything new to me until I reached chapter 49, verse 12:
Jer 49:12 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken; and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished? thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink of it.
This scripture is part of God's decree of judgement that was set upon Edom, as verse 10 indicates. I was not previously aware that God had spoken forth a second time in this manner regarding a commandment from the Lord that the prophet was to command that these certain nations must drink forth from the wine cup of God's wrath. This is the additional, major scriptural backing for the "calling in of judgements" that prophets must do do from time to time. The Lord had used Jeremiah 25 in speaking to me on July 5, 2008 as He sent me forth to command that this nation must drink forth from the wine cup of God's wrath:
Jer 25:15 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. Jer 25:16 And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. Jer 25:17 Then took I the cup at the LORD'S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me: Jer 25:18 To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day; Jer 25:19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people; Jer 25:20 And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod, Jer 25:21 Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon, Jer 25:22 And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea, Jer 25:23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners, Jer 25:24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert, Jer 25:25 And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes, Jer 25:26 And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them. Jer 25:27 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you. Jer 25:28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink. Jer 25:29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
I took note that Edom is also included among the list of nations to whom Jeremiah was sent in chapter 25. Edom is singled out in chapter 49 for a second imprecation. I took notice that it is a type of double: a double mention regarding the command to drink forth from the wine cup of the wrath of God. I then began to discuss this with the Lord. Why is Edom, alone among all the nations of the Earth, to be singled out by God for something double? A double judgement? Now, in the natural, Edom has long since ceased to be a nation, yet we know that Edom occupies a major role in prophecy, all the way to the battle of Armageddon. Edom, as the national name of Esau, still has peoples on the Earth and I, among others, have suggested that false Jews, who are really of Esau, have taken up residence in Israel. I believe today, however, that the symbolic calling forth of a double judgement upon Edom goes even further than that. This stretches forth from the recognition of those who say that they are Jews, but are not (Rev 2:9) all the way to false brethren in Jesus Christ and even unto Mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots, of Revelation 17. There is still one more major symbolic connection to be made here to cement the conclusion that I reach herein that these Jeremiah scriptures are the OT rendering of the double judgement imprecation. It has to do with the name "Edom".
The name of Esau means "rough", yet he was born with a covering of reddish hair. Later in life, he became tremendously obsessed with red foods, such as the red pottage that he so desperately desired that he was willing to sell his birthright as the first born for a bowl of that red stew. From that time, Esau was called Edom (red). He became "a man called red". The color red, or a rosey red color from the Hebrew connotation and the voracious lust for that reddish food so dominated his life that he finally carried that name. So, the Lord finally opened my eyes to be able to see this morning that the double judgements have been decreed from Old Testament times against RED: against the corruption that is in the world through lust and desire and love for the world and for the things of this world. The predominating color of the Church of Rome is RED: SCARLET RED. The color worn by all of her CARDINALS is RED when they are in conclave. The symbolic color of WHOREDOM and HARLOTRY throughout almost all of human history has been SCARLET RED. Indeed, from the scriptures, we see that this false religious system and the nations she rides upon are dominated by this one color:
Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
"Little children, keep yourselves from idols", for the double judgements have been decreed against you when you refuse to cast down those idols and you fail to follow Jesus, walking in the light as He is in the light.
