January 31, 2005 (Things To Come: Re-Classified Church Organizations. Why? They're Buying Rain Coats...
God gave me a vision in which I saw an exodus which is even now occurring. The Spirit of the Lord said that it is out of many of the main-line denominations and into Christ. There shall be Way stations set up. Everything will be weighed and examined in light of the scriptures. This did not seem to have to do with the size of a church as it's biblical values. The pox on the body of Christ is disappearing. It's a pox of disappointments.
Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; and make straight paths for my feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. (Hebrews 12.12-14)
The king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes and also the princes of Judah at Riblah. He put out the eyes of Zedekiaah and bound him in fetters, and the king of Babylon took him to Babylon and put him in prison till the day of his death. (Jer. 52:10-11)
Along more encouraging lines, we were traveling this past weekend (end of January) and staying in a city near Canada, when our small daughter awoke while it was yet dark. Since we thought she might have and been firghtened, we listened intently as she told us of this dream in which she killed a serpent. The face of the matter was that she wasn't frightened at all. She was actually very excited. As she spoke of the serpent which she destroyed by God's power, she said: I stepped on his head. Zani went on to describe how there was a cave in Israel, where all these serpents were hiding. People were killing the serpents. Stabbing them through the head, so that they couldn't see she said.
It was not till later, that I had a vision, in which I saw a teenage girl being held hostage in a cave. One of the captors said he was going to throw her from a place, but he decided to bring her along. Also a man in his 30's held hostage, was trying to loose himself from ropes which bound him. I was impressed that there were 4 hostages. It was just last fall that members of a terror cell took up residence in caves at Sinai.
We'd been discussing with Zani the words of Messiah, and what He said concerning those things which are harmful or destructive. Our words have power, and God gives revelation very clearly to those who do not allow their spirit to be defiled. Zani was very interested in Isaiah's prophecy concerning those animals that are natural enemies losing their fear of one another. The family devotional centered on
"They shall not hurt nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
There is a literal interpretation of scripture. The Lord however, also uses passages at times in an allegorical sense. As the Lord brought revelation as manna for us today as we studied His word, we concluded our study with the challenge to approprite the phrase "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, as applying to harmful words, or destructive habits." The Lord taught on demonic spirits such as Satan who is described as "The Serpent." We are told that these things should be under our feet.
Yeshua/Jesus says, "I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing shall by any means harm you." (Luke 10.19)
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. 2) The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him--the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD -- 3) and he will delight in the fear of the LORD.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; 4 but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. 5 Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
6 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. 7 The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. 8 The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest. 9 They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. (NIV-Isaiah 11:1-11)
THE NORWESTER HAT & THE YELLOW RAINCOAT
God gives me a vision and in this vision I see women working in the fishing industry wearing blouses and skirts similar to those of vineyard workers in europe in the old days, and the Yeshua haMashiach/Jesus Christ is teaching them how to be fishers of men.
A man hands a woman a yellow plastic Norwester type rain hat, but at first she looks like she doesn't think she'll need it, so she rejects it. The sky is sunny and cloudless. The man assures her that things will not remain this way. So she accepts the hat and immediately puts it on backwards with the bill up front. The man tells her that this doesn't provide full coverage. He assures her that when the first wave hits, she'll need it. But she doesn't think so, and leaves it like it is. Then the rain coat is handed to her. These women have been working in their summer outfits. A news report comes out: A new strain of bacteria is entering the blood stream of women.
ENFORCED BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION & BEING MONITORED
I see a new style of apartment building where occupants are on television continually. Surveillance is built into homes. The Spirit of the Lord says: I have surveillance which tells you that you are secure in Yeshua/Jesus. Monitor everything by My word. Set up these Way stations. Make straight the pathes! That wing on the right is going to appreciate it when push comes to a shove. Everyone not buying rain coats is monitored. The rain coats are expensive that the pharmaceutical companies are distributing. The Spirit of the Lord says: And you (some in the church) think that the church has had no impact on the abortion movement. They are not as successful with the pills as you think.
THE CAT & HER KITS:
You are going to get these "kits" says the Lord. The word "kits" seems to be emphasized as if the mother of this thing i.e. "the cat," is nearby and is ready to appear at any moment. Waiting in "the wings." The kits say: "You must wear the rain coats. Here is how you wear these. Some of the wives are saying: I just won't go any where with my husband. I see an irate husband who is resistent to this, commanding his wife: Buy the kit! Other people are saying: Ok, give me the kit! I see pastors are complying with government regulations buying them by the truck load. There's a book that comes with it. It's called: A manual. A Handbook. A Guidebook.
FROM GOVT ASSISTANCE TO THE STATE CHURCH
If you don't buy the kits now you're considered irresponsible. The time is coming when you will be considered "dangerous." (Teens can be classified as "At risk youth" if their church doesn't give them the kits) One church I saw left the kits on a table out front for parents to educate the family take if they wanted. They felt this complied with requirements. But the church did not feel this was their responsibility to provide this sort of education to church members.
The manual is very explicit and also educates even your home schoolers who participate in the educational group. Those who have never been sexually active are being shown how! There are spirits of lust and perversion in Pandora's Box. You've read of Baal Peor in the bible? Suddenly the topic is rain coats. Over breakfast, lunch, dinner and fellowships. The Youth leader at church has to have a Safety Meeting.
There will be infiltrators to make sure that you are behaving in a responsible manner. In the wings is the State Controlled Church.
"...And for the overspreading (wing) of abominations he shall make it desolate, even to the time of the consummation, and that determined be poured upon the desolate."
IT'S COMING DOWN LIKE CATS & DOGS
Believers will say to one another: Have you been to such and such a church? And the other will reply: "Not unless you want your holy son or daughter to receive their training from such and such. It's coming down like cats and dogs. Remember the cat and her kittens? There are those who are very legalistic. They deem it their civic duty to report those who behave in an irresponsible manner, or who view this as still an option so are "non compliant." Jealousies abound like "kittens." People's children are being told to "Just take the kit home." You don't have to use it. Read the manual. It'll be there if you need it. The manual incites ideas. The parents of children who are becoming sexually active through this education, are jealous of those whose parents are protective of their children. Stay in the boat they will tell you! Your church is here for your spiritual protection. With the first wave Matie, you'll be wishing you had that helmet on and don't turn it around backwards.
GHOST WRITTEN PROGRAMS OVERSEAS & MIXED WINE
There will be church sponsored programs giving out these kits overseas. Converts in other nations will be very confused at times as to the message this gives. Huh? You say Jesus loves me? Or are you saying the members on your team are available?
However, some pastors are viewing this as a bridge to reaching the cultures, like those who teach ESL classes in other countries.
I see one church making it very clear on their mission: These are a gift from the U.S. Government. The government will say: We didn't send this. The church did. "And you will be hated of all nations for my names sake." As I marvel in amazement at all of this, the Spirit of the Lord holds up a cork: "This is the new wine of this;"
"And take heed to yourselves lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, drunkenness and the cares of life, and so that day comes upon you unaware. For as a snare shall it come upon all those that dwell upon the face of the whole earth."
The Center For Disease Control will be swamped with the needs of refugees of all sorts, many of whom have been involved in brothels. There will be those that attempt to enter the country illegally. Watch and pray! Borders will be tightened between countries. The open door policy between EEU nations is being rethought in light of this. This will work in favor of tightening countries against terrorism. There will be religious groups shocked and angered at the enforced training of their people, and particularly their youth. America, Europe and the UK will not be the mecca they once seemed.
THE POSITIVE VS THE NEGATIVE
A more positive note among Christian youth is that many remaining active in church will experience a certain amount of social etc pressure to marry at a younger age. As long as your spending habits are monitored to see if you're buying "rain coats" you may as well be married. The other side of the coin is that the church will teach on issues involved. It's a major attack on intimacy in marriage, which will polarize the camps. Satan doesn't want the "one flesh" mystery or relationship between husband and wife that typifies the union between Mashiach/Christ and His church. It will seem unthinkable to many to apply God's word as protection against disease. They said it couldn't be done when the Wright Brothers said they would fly. Count the nations with wings says the Lord. And in a vision, a Pastor says: If anyone teaches that, they are anathema! And I hear a woman say: Oh Bosh! It's no different than a highschool science class!
Things To Come: Churches Re-Classified. Why? They're Buying Rain Coats... How is this sort of thing achieved? Call it the old bait and switch if you will. First the kit based programs are distributed to churches. Later this is ruled against as unconstitutional. But you aren't informed. It comes as an in-house notice to certain agencies. Your churches are continuing to purchase "the kits" and one day, and to be monitored that they are. As churches, you are the ones who are in danger of being ruled as alternative non profits to some pretty weird things, when the whole church, including members of all ages are buying "the kits."
I saw one pastor talking to an attorney regarding the spin offs of this. His church decided to write into a legal brief that they were doing this educational distribution according to governmental legal requirements, and if the laws changed, or anything was enacted of which they were not informed, they were not responsible for new changes in procedure.
