In this special Sermon the holy spirit leads us to talk about the subject of the very real fact of Another Exodus which is talked about all throughout the Bible . In Exodus 9 we read about how Jesus dictates through Moses speaking to the Pharoah saying " For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart , and upon thy servants and upon thy people: that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth" . We are facing many sicknesses viruses health issues , as many things are standing as a sign and a road block to everyday life . The most prominent of these being Covid and the latest Monkeypox later on in the verse he sais "that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence". We see that when the 7th plague hit some of the Egyptians listened to his warning and word . This is what Jesus is waiting on he wants obedience and faith in the face of oppression by Oppressors which is world wide , there's a spiritual preparedness . In Jeremiah 23:2-4 Jesus speaks through Jeremiah stating " And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord". Jesus is returning . Explore this with us feel free to share and give feedback, personal revelation's and insight.

 Message:  Genesis 47:1-12 “Seasons of Life"  After discovering that Joseph is alive and ruling under Pharoah in Egypt, Jacob moves the whole family to this foreign land to survive the famine. Little do they know this move will last 400yrs for his descendants.  But like other seasons of his life, this season also serves a purpose. We each have different seasons of life to go through, and each season serves a purpose. What are some of the seasons you've been through and how have they shaped you? What is the season you are in right now and how is God inviting you to grow in this time and place you find yourself?

August 1-7 When we lead our tours to the Holy Land, we will inevitably pull out some humor from the Biblical sources, attempting to create memories of laughter in remote parts of the tour. Our Bible jokes are many and varied and of a quality that only a dad could appreciate. “Who is the great tennis player of the Bible? Of course, everyone knows it's Joseph, because he served in Pharoah's courts! And who was the great comedian of the Bible? It was Sampson. He brought the house down! And what kind of man was Boaz before he got married? Ruthless! … I'm waiting for all of you to finish laughing. And then we pull out the most obvious one: Who was the greatest doctor of the Bible? Some contend it was Job, because he had a lot of ‘patience.' But most would agree it's Moses because he delivered all the children of Israel! All humor aside, we know that the greatest physician in the Bible is the Savior Himself—the one who can heal each of us. This week we will see some of the ways that Job reminds us of Jesus and leads us to Him.

Theme Verse: Genesis 42:18 - Joseph said to them, “Do this and you will live, for I fear God.”  SHOW NOTES: We have a Faithful God even when we can't see Him working – in the midst of a storm, walking in a dark valley, or even … sitting in a prison cell … today, Joseph will stand in Pharoah's courts. After 13 difficult years, Joseph is put in a position of power and great authority. He has a very important job to do and he is diligent in completing the task assigned to him. God has also blessed him with 2 sons. Life's Journey takes many twists and turns – unexpected joys and difficulties. But we do not walk alone. The Lord walks beside us. He is always working out the details of His plan … for you and for me. Here's the Truth – He is here in our midst … even when we don't see it, He is working, putting the pieces of His plan in place.

Rev. Matt Tooman, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Wahpeton, ND joins host Rev. Brady Finnern to study Genesis 41. At the time, God chose dreams to reveal His work for the good of His people. He gave a prophecy for the Egyptian people to care for others and although we are not able to depend on dreams to create a savings plan, we are able to trust in Him and pray for Him to provide for our needs. We pray that He may “give us this day our daily bread” and He does provide what we need for this body and life, forgiveness of sins in Christ, and life forever. “O Lord God, provide for our needs as You did for Joseph that we not only may be sustained but that we may serve our neighbor for the sake of both bodily health and the gracious salvation in Christ. Amen”

Mark Call – Parsha “Balak” (Numbers 22:2-25:9) teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Perhaps ironically, the parsha named 'Balak' in the Torah (Numbers 22:2-25:9) -- because that name of the king of Moab appears right up front in the text -- is really more about Bilaam (aka 'Balaam' in some English translations) -- who would be the ancient equivalent of the most well-known 'televangelist' of his times. (And, perhaps the similarities don't stop there...) Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at at the parsha which stands out because of how dramatically it departs from most of the rest of the narrative we've come to expect: neither Moshe, or Aaron, or any of the sons of Israel appear directly in the story at all. But that's just the beginning. The Erev Shabbat reading and outline of the parsha https://hebrewnationonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/SSM-7-15-22-Balak-teaching-podcast-xx.mp3 During the Sabbath teaching, Mark suggests that this is a parsha which might appear to be 'out-of-place,' but certainly could offer insight into a LOT of different questions. Perhaps the one that most of the midrash tends to emphasize is Why? Why this people? But there are other questions raised here, too? Does Bilaam - like Pharoah, perhaps - really have "free choice" in this situation? This story not only resonates on SO many levels with things that are happening right now, but also with our whole understanding of free will, coercion, deception, and who is truly able to make choices that impact our lives. Choose LIFE! But when? And just when does that choice, or action based on it, become irreversible - fatal - and he "knew or SHOULD have known?"

Bride Rewarded; Factious and Apostates Judged (11) David Eells - 6/26/22 (Audio) A Storm of Witchcraft Fails Claire Pienaar - 6/18/22 (David's notes in red)     (Claire is representing the Bride because of her name which means, “Brilliant” which describes her garment in Rev. 19.) I dreamed I was in my parents' old house. (Being at my parents' home with both parents represents abiding in the ways of the ancient Church.) I was sleeping in the bed I had in my room as a child. My mother and Father came into the room and gently woke me up and said, “It's time”. (As we will see, This represents that "It's time" for the Bride to really fight against the faction in the Church and state and their witchcraft.) I looked out through the curtains and saw it was dark outside. (It's very dark in the world around us right now, but we can rest in the promises and goodness of Our Lord). I walked to the kitchen to get a drink of water from the faucet. (The water in the kitchen represents the water of the Word which is our spiritual food.) As I did that, In my dream, I remembered a teaching from David Eells about a time when he and his family were under intense persecution. His wife (Representing the Bride; the wife of the David/Man-child reformers.) got up to get water from the kitchen and she saw bullets being shot through the water and the faucet from somewhere outside the house. (The bullets through the water represent the fiery darts fired at the Woman through the river of waters that the factious Dragon body spewed out of his mouth to try to swallow her up. Rev. 12:15-16 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth.)She rebuked it and it stopped. (The Bride will fight against the words coming from the factious Dragon.) Then, I had the exact same experience in my dream, and I also rebuked the bullets. The bullets were big and black. (So this confirms that Claire is representing the Bride. The lies and slander of the factious are very big and very evil.) There was no fear in my head or voice when I rebuked the bullets, but I was just astonished at the lengths people would go to curse us. (Psa. 36:1-4 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, There is no fear of God before his eyes. 2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, That his iniquity will not be found out and be hated. 3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: He hath ceased to be wise and to do good. 4 He deviseth iniquity upon his bed; He setteth himself in a way that is not good; He abhorreth not evil.)s ... Then I realized David Eells was sleeping in the master bedroom where my parents were supposed to be. I had an intense desire to pray for him. Then I woke up. David is representing the first fruits David/Man-child reformers that are at rest in the Master bedroom representing the Throne anointing of authority they have received.) Then Riaan and I woke up around the same time and we prayed down all witchcraft and word curses. As we were praying, I had a vision of David Eells' heart and a big black cloud or storm was trying to land on it, but we kept rebuking it. The storm never landed on his heart, and we soon fell back to sleep in prayer. (This is the storm of witchcraft sent by the factious Dragon body in an attempt to devour the Man-child as in Rev.12.) This is the verse I received by faith at random for the dream: Col 2:3 (in context 2-3) that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, even Christ, 3 in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden. The Enemy Attempts to Kill the Bride and Steal the Gifts Eve Brast - 6/18/22 (David's notes in red)     I believe that this dream has a corporate meaning: I dreamed Local UBM had set up the white pot blessing tables in a U shape in the living room of the left mobile home on the land that my dad (Representing the Father) had given me. There were no more factious people living in this left mobile home who had lived there according to previous dreams. (Father had cleared them out like He did the factious wasps in previous dreams.) As I was going around the tables and placing the chairs, these gold medallions appeared at each place setting along with a small white box that contained a cleaning cloth and solution to shine up the coins because they were very old coins. I knew these were a gift from heaven above. (This has both a literal interpretation as well as a spiritual interpretation. Father is going to provide all the finances necessary for us to be able to provide for His elect in the coming wilderness tribulation and He has provided us with spiritual giftings that are very old because Jesus had them 2000 years ago before He passed them on to His disciples.) I picked up the coin in front of me and looked closely at it. On the front of the coin there was a profile of a man with a beard. (Presidents or rulers are on the face of coins. I believe that this bearded man represents Jesus who returns manifested by Word and Spirit in the Man-child reformers to lead God's elect through the tribulation. Isa. 40:10-11 Behold, the Lord Jehovah will come as a mighty one (in the Man-child Reformers), and his arm will rule for him: Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. 11 He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and will gently lead those that have their young.) On the back there was a circle of small stars all around the outer circumference. (God said He would make Abraham's seed, whom we are by faith, as the stars of Heaven for a multitude. Also, the Woman in Rev. 12 has 12 stars around her head representing the doctrine of the apostles which most of the Church does not have yet.) I cleaned the coin with the cleaning kit provided and it was shiny and beautiful with all the years of corrosion cleaned off of it. (The Bride will be able to clearly see her leadership on the coin who is Jesus. It is also Jesus manifested in the Man-child as it was with so many in the Bible including Moses, Joseph, Jesus, etc.) Suddenly, a black Cobra helicopter descended upon the left mobile home and was about to open fire on us. (The Cobra helicopter represents serpent spirits in the Dragon body whose thoughts or fiery darts attack and try to poison the mind.) I knew that they wanted to kill us and steal our gold coins or medallions sent from heaven to us by God. (This represents trying to separate God's people from their true leadership. The factious enemy always tries to spiritually kill us by their lies and slander to separate the head from the body and paralyze us so that we are ineffective to use the gifts Father has given to us for His kingdom.) I began to gather up all the gold from each place setting and put it into a large white tote bag with a small floral design all over it. (The corporate Bride body must put the gifts of God given to her down into her heart, represented by the white floral bag, where they are safe from being stolen by the enemy.) I also grabbed what else I could in a hurry and ran out the door, across the big porch and down the steps to the gravel driveway before they had a chance to open fire. (Rev.12:13-14 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the Man-child. 14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. [Represented by the Cobra helicopter.]) Leon (Representing Jesus, the Lion of Judah, in the anointed Man-child reformers.)came driving up quickly in his SUV and circled around to me. He rolled down the front passenger window and said, “Hurry and get in. We have to leave now!” (To go into the wilderness Tribulation.) I opened the rear passenger door, and to my surprise, all of Local UBM was supernaturally squeezed into his SUV. I was barely able to squeeze in there myself and shut the door as Leon was peeling out down the driveway towards Calendar Rd. (Calendar road represents the passage of time wherein the the Woman is nourished by the Man-child reformers for "a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”) Then I woke up. The Lord Will Judge the Factious Enemy and Then Give the Bride Her Reward David Eells - 6/17/22 It was so in Isaiah 40: Isa 40:1-2 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. 2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem; and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she hath received of Jehovah's hand double for all her sins. 9-11 O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion, get thee up on a high mountain; O thou that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold, your God! 10 Behold, the Lord Jehovah will come as a mighty one (in the Man-child Reformers), and his arm will rule for him: Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. (Notice that the Lord smites the factious and then rewards the Bride for her crucifixion by them.) 11 He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and will gently lead those that have their young. It was so in Isaiah 62-64: Isa 62:11-63:6 Behold, Jehovah hath proclaimed unto the end of the earth, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. 12 And they shall call them The holy people, The redeemed of Jehovah: and thou shalt be called sought out, A city not forsaken. 63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? (The Edomite sheepfold.) this that is glorious in his apparel, marching in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winevat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples there was no man with me: yea, I trod them in mine anger, and trampled them in my wrath; and their lifeblood is sprinkled upon my garments, and I have stained all my raiment. 4 For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my wrath, it upheld me. 6 And I trod down the peoples in mine anger, and made them drunk in my wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth. … And Pharoah's army was destroyed at the Red sea but the people of God celebrated on the other side. Isa 63:11-14 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is he that put his holy Spirit in the midst of them? 12 that caused his glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses? that divided the waters before them, to make himself an everlasting name? 13 that led them through the depths, as a horse in the wilderness, so that they stumbled not? 14 As the cattle that go down into the valley, the Spirit of Jehovah caused them to rest; so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name. Isa 64:1-4 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might quake at thy presence, (I believe that the DS will be retaliating with earthquakes when the Lord returns in His Man-child.) 2 as when fire kindleth the brushwood, and the fire causeth the waters to boil; to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! 3 When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains quaked at thy presence. 4 For from of old men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen a God besides thee, who worketh for him that waiteth for him. The Lord Judged the Factious Enemy and then Gave the Bride her Reward. It was so with the Bride and Man-child in Esther. The King of Kings gave authority to Esther and Mordecai to destroy Haman and his people in Purim and then rewarded Esther and Mordecai. We received this by faith at random this morning. Est 10:1-3 And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea. 2 And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the full account of the greatness of Mordecai, (meaning "little man” which is a Man-child.) whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia? 3 For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the good of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed. It was so with the Bride and Man-child in Joel 2. The Northern army advanced toward Jerusalem, the Bride. They cried unto the Lord, the Bride and Man-child were revealed to the people. The Lord then smote the army and then rewarded the Bride with revival and restoration. This was probably the Assyrian army of Sennecherib who were smitten of the Lord who killed 185,000 in one night. And here it is... Joe 2:16 gather the people, sanctify the assembly, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her closet... 20 but I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, its forepart into the eastern sea, and its hinder part into the western sea; and its stench shall come up, and its ill savor shall come up, because it hath done great things... 23-25 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Jehovah your God; for he giveth you the former rain in just measure, and he causeth to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker-worm, and the caterpillar, and the palmer-worm, my great army which I sent among you. (So we see again the judgment of the enemies like the Red Sea and then the reward of the Bride.) It was so with the Bride and Man-child in 2 Ch 20. The three armies advanced towards Jerusalem, the Bride. Jehoshaphat commanded the praisers to the front line. The enemies killed each other off. The people took the plunder as it will be with the DS and our faction. 2Ch 20:22-23 And when they began to sing and to praise, Jehovah set liers-in-wait against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, that were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. So what has happened to prove this will happen with the faction? Some of our missionaries were killed by the factious Catholics who blamed us for converting their cult members with the Word. They warned us to get out of their country or we would all die. They did a Black mass to enforce this. We called upon the Lord who then started a war between the Catholics, Coptics, and JW's, who were also persecuting the Christian missionaries. So now they have been killing each other off for weeks. This happened as it did with Abimelek and the men of Shechem like I showed the lead evangelist. The Catholics said it was my black magic that did this to them and are doing a Black Mass, which is witchcraft, to get rid of us but they are still being killed by the grace of God. The Missionaries have been spared all of this civil war. Also President Trump and the Alliance have started the mass arrests of the Elites with their DS leadership in the nations and are trying and sentencing many to death by bullet. They just changed the rules because hanging was too time consuming and expensive and we are talking about 3000 elites and many more DS leaders. The witches around the world are with these satanists to support them and destroy the Alliance and Christians but they are failing and so will our faction. And we have received from the Lord that there is a parallel between Trump draining the political swamp and the Man-child draining the Church swamp. So all of this is a type for us. Draining the Swamp Eve Brast - 5/12/19 (David's notes red) I dreamed that I was standing near the edge of a swamp that took up the whole dirt road in the middle of an old western town. (This swamp represents the DS corruption in the “Wild West.”). The sky overhead was overcast (An omen of Darkness over the Land) and I was looking in the direction of a covered, wooden, porch of one of the buildings in town. (The sun/Son has been obscured by the haze of corruption over this country in the Church and state.) I saw a man who was a politician and seemed to be in charge, dressed in a tan tweed suit. He had light colored hair and a single spectacle in one eye. He also had a walrus mustache. There were two or three men standing around him who were dressed like FBI agents with black suits, white shirts, and thin black ties and they were wearing dark black sun glasses. They seemed to be talking over their sinister plans for the town. (Parts of the FBI have been involved in much corruption and criminality with evil government leaders.) I knew these men were dangerous and I slowly skirted around the edge of the swamp to get to the other side and avoid detection by them. They were so busy with their plans that they took no notice of me. (God will protect His people from their evil plans.) When I got to the other side of the swamp all the local UBM people had joined behind me and I knew that we had to wade through this swamp in order to get to where we were going. (God allows this testing to clean us up and get us where we are going in His plan.) (We have been delivered of many “swamp creatures”, just as the Alliance is purging them from the Governmental swamp.) The swamp water was up to all our necks and we were repulsed by it and the feel of water weeds brushing up against our bodies as we kept searching for an area where it was possible to exit the swamp. (So many people in this country in Church and state are sick and repulsed by the wickedness that has infiltrated the Church and government.) I noticed the top of a wooden structure in the middle of the swamp that looked like a gallows where they used to hang criminals in the town a long time ago, but now it was useless because the swamp waters were so high. (“The swamp” has perverted and stifled justice, but once it's drained, justice will return to the “Wild West”. Ultimately the Man-child reformers will deliver God's elect out of the apostate swamp.) Suddenly, the angel named Shemuel, that I've witnessed standing next to the “Drain the Swamp” sign in David's house near the water filter appeared in front of our group. I've watched him at David's house smile and gesture with his head towards the sign and tap it with his sword. (Shemuel represents that not only is God going to drain the swamp of corruption but He is also going to restore the pure water of the Word, the original gospel for the people.) (This angel appears in our house regularly along with two other angels who stand in the balcony, all of whom go forth to conquer when we speak the word concerning draining the swamp in Church or Government.) LINK: Ministering Angels Through UBM. - UBM [David Eells] Shemuel appeared above our group to our right hovering above the swamp waters. He shone very brightly and his sandals were golden as well as his golden curly hair. He still wore the baby blue, velvet sash tied around his waist as I've seen him in David's house. (Shemuel means: Shem = Name and El = >God. Exo 23: 20 Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee by the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 21 Take ye heed before him, and hearken unto his voice; provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgression: for my name is in him. 22 But if thou shalt indeed hearken unto his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. This is clear that the angel who bears God's name, meaning nature and authority, is here to lead us to conquer the enemies in the land. And as we hear his directions with humility towards God's Word, he will be an enemy to our enemies.) He was pointing to the politician and the FBI agents that surrounded him and was making proclamations and judgments against them and declaring the immanent draining of the swamp as he pointed with his left finger at them. They were completely oblivious to the judgment proclaimed against them. Only we from UBM heard the sentencing against them. (They do not believe there is a judgment against them even though the scriptures declare it over and over. He says, “The slanderer I will destroy.") I remember that we all let out a sigh of relief when the angel said this, especially Merlene because she had been struggling because of her height to get through the swamp waters. We knew that relief was coming soon. Then I woke up. (In the political realm this seems to be the reality on the ground.) (God is paralleling judgment on this political factious swamp with declassification and judgment of the religious factious swamp. Both have the same demons of faction, witchcraft, slander, lies, fornication of all kinds. It is all the harlot of Babylon. The Dragon seeking to devour God's people. Almost every morning a group of us gathers for prayer and warfare. We all get a word from the Lord by faith at random. In all of these meetings we get warnings of God's plan to drain the political and religious swamp of corruption.) This mornings words by faith at random: Even now the D.S. are destroying the food supply by weather warfare, interfering with food distribution, burning food processing plants, culling whole cattle and chicken populations, and massive inflation which the Lord will give back through His people: Joel 1:15-18 Alas for the day! for the day of Jehovah is at hand, and as destruction from the Almighty shall it come. 16 Is not the food cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from the house of our God? 17 The seeds rot under their clods; the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the grain is withered. 18 How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate. (We just had 10,000 cows die in Kansas all at once.) Judgment is coming on the apostate leadership of Christianity by the hand of the D.S.: Lam. 2:8, 8-10, Jehovah hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Zion; He hath stretched out the line, he hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying; And he hath made the rampart and wall to lament; they languish together. 9 Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: Her king and her princes are among the nations where the law is not; Yea, her prophets find no vision from Jehovah. 10 The elders of the daughter of Zion sit upon the ground, they keep silence; They have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth: The virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground. (Judgment on the leadership of the factious swamp in the apostate Church) Jer 2:14-21 Is Israel a servant? is he a home-born slave? why is he become a prey? 15 The young lions have roared upon him, and yelled; and they have made his land waste: his cities are burned up, without inhabitant. 16 The children also of Memphis and Tahpanhes have broken the crown of thy head. 17 Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken Jehovah thy God, when he led thee by the way? 18 And now what hast thou to do in the way to Egypt, to drink the waters of the Shihor? or what hast thou to do in the way to Assyria, to drink the waters of the River? 19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and a bitter, that thou hast forsaken Jehovah thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts. 20 For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bonds; and thou saidst, I will not serve; for upon every high hill and under every green tree thou didst bow thyself, playing the harlot. 21 Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou turned into the degenerate branches of a foreign vine unto me? (Judgment on apostate Church.) Eze 39:17-22 And thou, son of man, thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Speak unto the birds of every sort, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh and drink blood. 18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. 19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 20 And ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord Jehovah. 21 And I will set my glory among the nations; and all the nations shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. 22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am Jehovah their God, from that day and forward. (The Red Sea victory over the factions.) Jer 50:5-7 They shall inquire concerning Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come ye, and join yourselves to Jehovah in an everlasting covenant that shall not be forgotten. 6 My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray; they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill; they have forgotten their resting-place. 7 All that found them have devoured them; and their adversaries said, We are not guilty, because they have sinned against Jehovah, the habitation of righteousness, even Jehovah, the hope of their fathers. (Draining the factious religious swamp.) Dream of Faction Bombed and Scattered and the Elect's Return Eve Brast - 2020 (David's notes red) I dreamed that it was dark outside and I was standing in a line with the local UBM brethren. (Eve along with Local UBM is being used to represent the corporate body of the Bride of Christ.) We were all facing the factious enemie's camp and holding hands and praying. (The Bride must stand united against the faction and their witchcraft in prayer and spiritual warfare.) The camp was being bombed from above and I saw a bombed out vehicle about 50 yards in front of our prayer line. (Vehicles represent lives. It appears God is going to recompense the wicked for their evil committed against His people.) I saw a group of factious men who had been standing in front of the vehicle begin to scatter because of the bombings. One of the factious men who was holding a packet of legal documents was ducking for cover and trying to run away towards his left from the bombed out camp. (The legal documents represent the factious leaders plan to sue UBM and David. Also, the accuser of the brethren, satan, who persecutes the righteous through his vessels or vehicles of dishonor with his accusations in the court of Heaven.) I could see little embers from the bombings floating around in the air. Then a black woman who was deceived by faction appeared in front of me in our prayer line. (This may represent another dream we had of her dying by a plague but repenting. We've had dreams of other factious people dying of the plagues too. This could represent some of the bombing of their camp.) Her skin and clothing were charred from the bombings and she was very thin now. She was dressed in a large floral print dress but it was all tattered. Her hair was all a mess and there was blood on her face and her mouth. (The blood on her mouth represents devouring the saints by slander.) She was crying and weak and she was holding out her hands towards me, palms up, in repentance. Then I woke up. (Also, some who have been deceived by the faction will return as a result of the judgments upon them from God.) UBM Protected by Special OPs Angels Eve Brast - 6/1/21 (David's notes red) I dreamed that local UBM was encamped outdoors near the large, grey, stone wall that I've seen in previous dreams. (This wall represents sanctification which separates us from the world and their wicked practices. We are the stones that are fitted together tightly and they are grey representing our crucified life of death to self.) Our camp was at peace and was lit by a light that came from overhead. (The righteous have a "covenant of peace” through the light from Heaven called the Word and the Holy Spirit. Isa 54:10 For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee. Num 25:12-13 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace: 13 and it shall be unto him, and to his seed after him, the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was jealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel. Eze 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. ) We had the white pot blessing tables set up and our chairs for a meeting. (White tables represents feeding on the pure Word. The wicked faction hate the Word and the God who wrote it and the people who stand for it, because it convicts them of sin. Therefore in Isa 57: 21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. ) Everyone was happy and in peaceful fellowship with each other. (Psalm 133:1-3, Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, That ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard; That came down upon the skirt of his garments; 3 Like the dew of Hermon, That cometh down upon the mountains of Zion: For there Jehovah commanded the blessing, Even life for evermore. 13 And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children. (“Peaceful fellowship" will be God's gift to Zion, the Bride. Isa 54:10 For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee. …) Isa 55:12 For ye shall go out with joy (From Babylonish bondage), and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing; and all the trees of the fields shall clap their hands. Isa 57:2 He entereth into peace; they rest in their beds, each one that walketh in his uprightness. … 21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.) The factious people, who had been driven from us in bitterness and hatred because of their own sins, were camped about 100 yards or so North of our location. (100 here represents 100% complete separation from Zion, the Bride, whom they consider their enemies because of their demon possession.) (The beast enemy attacks Zion from the North. Jer.6:22-30, Thus saith Jehovah, Behold, a people cometh from the north country; and a great nation shall be stirred up from the uttermost parts of the earth. 23 They lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea, and they ride upon horses, every one set in array, as a man to the battle, against thee, O daughter of Zion . … 27 I have made thee a trier and a fortress among my people; that thou mayest know and try their way. (Mar 12:10 Have ye not read even this scripture: The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner.) 28 They are all grievous revolters, going about with slanders; they are brass and iron: they all of them deal corruptly. 29 The bellows blow fiercely; the lead is consumed of the fire: in vain do they go on refining; for the wicked are not plucked away. 30 Refuse silver shall men them, because Jehovah hath rejected them. (The northern army who attacks Zion will be destroyed. Psa 101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I destroy… Joel 2:15-17 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly; 16 gather the people, sanctify the assembly, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. (The Bride and Groom will be revealed) 17 Let the priests, the ministers of Jehovah, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Jehovah, and give not thy heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the peoples, Where is their God? 18 Then was Jehovah jealous for his land, and had pity on his people. … 20 but I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, its forepart into the eastern sea, and its hinder part into the western sea; and its stench shall come up, and its ill savor shall come up, because it hath done great things. (Just like Pharoah's army at the Red Sea.) It was dark and shadowy over and around their camp and everything was chaotic and in disarray. I could hear shouting and gunfire with mini explosions and the whiz of bullets flying. (It reminded me of the night fire training courses that we practiced on in Army Basic Training. Isa. 57:14-21, And he will say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of my people. 15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite. … 19 I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace, to him that is far off and to him that is near, saith Jehovah; and I will heal him. 20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it cannot rest, and its waters cast up mire and dirt. 21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.) In this dream, I was standing at the perimeter of the UBM camp, looking out, across the way, towards the factious camp. It was like I was seeing in the Spirit because no one else in the UBM camp was aware of or concerned by what was happening. (It is very peaceful to miss out on the whole battle while the angels take out the enemy.) (Father gives us prophetic dreams and revelations to be able to warn our brethren so that we can do spiritual warfare against the demons in our enemies.) I was watching a bunch of tracer bullets flying towards our direction and orange basket balls, with bombs hidden inside them, being launched towards us as well. (The basketball bombs represent the juvenile mentality of the faction and their slander and games they like to play.) But they were all being supernaturally stopped. They were either falling short of our camp or were being turned back upon the factious camp by 2 Special OPs soldiers (who were Angels) that stood guarding the UBM camp. (The Lord said of those who curse us, “I will curse those who curse thee”. Notice that the wicked curse themselves because their curses fall back on them. We are not to personally curse our enemies but to pray for them. Rom 12:14 Bless them that persecute you; bless, and curse not. … 19 Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath of God: for it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord. 20 But if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him to drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head. God can speak prophetically through the righteous to judge the wicked as He has done all through scriptures. The Spirit of God spoke through Paul to turn apostates over to Satan. 1Co 5:5 to deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 1Ti 1:20 of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I delivered unto Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme (Meaning to speak against God or others). We should not do this to defend ourselves or to fight with others. We should be neutral in this regard. Also, we do not need to turn one over to Satan when we can obviously see that they have already been turned over by God. The Spirit of God spoke curses on blasphemers or railers through David and they are still true. Psa 109:1 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise; 2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me: They have spoken unto me with a lying tongue. 3 They have compassed me about also with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. 4 For my love they are my adversaries: But I give myself unto prayer. 5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love. 6 Set thou a wicked man over him; And let an adversary (Satan) stand at his right hand. (turned over to Satan) 7 When he is judged, let him come forth guilty; And let his prayer be turned into sin. 8 Let his days be few; And let another take his office (Satan entered Judas). (To the railers and cursers God spoke in) 17 Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him (Their curses returned upon their own heads as the angels were doing); And he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him. 18 He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment, And it came into his inward parts like water, And like oil into his bones. 19 Let it be unto him as the raiment wherewith he covereth himself, And for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually. 20 This is the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah, And of them that speak evil against my soul. … 28 Let them curse, but bless thou: When they arise, they shall be put to shame, But thy servant shall rejoice. Isa 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. [So the wicked who judge the righteous will condemn themselves because of this promise from God.] This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah. The 2 Special OPs soldiers had short military haircuts and were wearing the standard issue, camouflage, billed caps on their heads. and were dressed in grey, urban combat BDUs (Battle Dress Uniforms). They had matching backpacks with supplies and weapons to counter the attacks of our enemies. I knew immediately that they were angels because of their large, pure white wings that were spread out to each side underneath their backpacks. (A symbol that people recognize as angels) Their wings were also part of the protection barrier that they provided for the UBM camp. (Psalm 91:4, He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His truth is a shield and a buckler.) Since their backs were to me, I couldn't see exactly what they were doing to repel the enemy fire or what weapons they were using upon the enemies camp; all I saw was their arm movements which indicated some type of invisible bow and arrow weaponry. (Psalm 7:9-16, O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish thou the righteous: For the righteous God trieth the minds and hearts. 10 My shield is with God, Who saveth the upright in heart. 11 God is a righteous judge, Yea, a God that hath indignation every day. 12 If a man turn not, he will whet his sword; He hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; He maketh his arrows fiery shafts . 14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity; Yea, he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15 He hath made a pit, and digged it, And is fallen into the ditch which he made. 16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, And his violence shall come down upon his own pate.) I was noticing that every time the enemy launched a ‘basketball bomb' towards us, the angels would hold up their hands in a 'stop gesture' and the bombs would reverse course and fall back into the enemies camp and explode upon them causing much chaos and casualties. The 2 angels looked like traditional traffic cops but instead of directing traffic they were directing the bullets and the bombs. (Like Daniel in the lions den was kept safe while his enemies who plotted against him and their families were devoured by them. Psa 141:9-10 Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, And from the gins of the workers of iniquity. 10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, Whilst that I withal escape. Psa 140:9-11 As for the head of those that compass me about, Let the mischief of their own lips cover them. 10 Let burning coals fall upon them: Let them be cast into the fire, Into deep pits, whence they shall not rise. 11 An evil speaker shall not be established in the earth: Evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him. Psa 35:7-8 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit; Without cause have they digged a pit for my soul. 8 Let destruction come upon him unawares; And let his net that he hath hid catch himself: With destruction let him fall therein. Psa 37:14-15 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay such as are upright in the way. 15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. Psa 57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down: They have digged a pit before me; They are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. Selah. Pro 26:27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein; And he that rolleth a stone, it shall return upon him. Pro 28:10 Whoso causeth the upright to go astray in an evil way, He shall fall himself into his own pit; But the perfect shall inherit good. Mat 7:1-3 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Most of what the factious throw at us is demons of faction, witchcraft, slander, etc. but whatever they throw it returns upon them because God said in Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.) After witnessing this, I walked over to David and was reporting to him everything that I was seeing. I don't remember what David replied but he seemed pleased that the angels were doing a good job of protecting us. Then I woke up. Psalm 91:1-12, He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust. ... 4 He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His truth is a shield and a buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; … 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked. ...10 There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent. 11 For he will give his angels charge over thee, To keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Factious Dogs in the DS and Church Rounded Up and Euthanized Eve Brast - 10/12/21 (David's notes red) I dreamed that I was in a huge warehouse that had many different sections and at least 3 levels. (As we will see, the Father not only stores up provision for His people in His warehouse but judgement is also stored up for the wicked. Rom.2:5 but after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest (or storeth) up for thyself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God. (The ground level of this warehouse represents this earth and the earthly happenings. The second level represents the spirit realm where the directives are handed down from the Father and also from the intercessions of His saints to the angels who are the law enforcers and who carry out the directives of the Bride and the Man-child. Psalm 103:20-21 Bless Jehovah, ye his angels, That are mighty in strength, that fulfil his word, Hearkening unto the voice of his word. 21 Bless Jehovah, all ye his hosts, Ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.) I was standing on the cement ground floor with a 7 ft. tall, very muscular policeman at my right side who was dressed in a navy blue policeman's uniform. He had a silver badge on the right side of his uniform pocket. Even though he was dressed as a 'beat cop', I knew in the dream that he was a police detective. (This police detective represents the angels that carry out and enforce God's directives according to His Word and His will.) On the ground floor of the warehouse was a veterinary medical bay in the back left corner with exam tables and I.V.'s set up along with I.V. catheters and syringes for lethal injections for euthanasia. In front of that was a large chain link fence containment or holding area. (This lethal injection could also be representative of the vaccines that are putting many of the DS minions to death through the side effects. We've heard that many arrests of DS individuals are taking place currently and that they are being questioned and held awaiting military tribunals and sentencing to be put to death. (Our parallel runs true because many of the factious in the church leadership are also being arrested for spiritual child trafficking and crimes against God's children.)The actively factious in the church will also be put to death through lethal injection, (and for many it will be the jab), because they are killing God's children.) I asked the police officer where we were; what I was seeing and what was going on? He began explaining everything to me. It was dark on the ground floor of the warehouse except in the veterinary bay which had some very limited lighting capabilities. (Could this take place on a grand scale during the 10 days of darkness when all the power is cut off and the EBS is enabled to expose all the DS evil crimes against humanity? On the political side they are rounding up these people and executing many. (But also God is using their own spike proteins to take down these people as He said.) As the police officer began explaining I had a vision of the second floor of the warehouse which was very well lit. There were many offices and cubicles with law enforcement support personnel talking on phones and typing on computers and doing all kinds of office work. It was busy and bustling. I asked the officer what all the bustle was about and he said, “A directive has been handed down from the top to round up all the dogs.” (These dogs represent the faction in the Babylonish DS and the religious faction that have conspired to crucify the righteous just as it was with Jesus.) (Prophesying of David, Jesus, and the man-child's persecutions we are told in:) Psa. 22:16,17,&20 For dogs have compassed me: A company of evil-doers have inclosed me; They pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may count all my bones; They look and stare upon me. ... 20 Deliver my soul from the sword, My darling from the power of the dog.) Then I saw the woman in charge of carrying out this directive. (The woman represents the Bride, who in Esther as a type, is given authority by the King, representing Father God, to put Haman and his sons to death as well as all of the other enemies who have lifted up their hands against her to kill her and her people.) She had a lot of authority from the top and was in charge of the second floor and all the law enforcement personnel. She was a thin woman with very straight hair that was shoulder length and she was standing in the middle of it all dressed in a women's business suit with her arms folded. (This woman is thin because she has gotten rid of all her excess flesh. Her hair is straight representing submission to Jesus, the Word, which is the straight and narrow way.) Occasionally, I saw her bring out her right arm and point off into the distance with her pointer finger and I would see many law enforcement personnel going around the city and rounding up large groups of all different sizes and breeds of dogs. They would put them in temporary holding areas until they could be transported to the warehouse. I was not able to see the third level of the warehouse. (The Bride is dressed in a business suit because she is about her Father's business just as Jesus was and commanding the angels as she sees and discerns the Father's will. Heb. 1:13-14 But of which of the angels hath he said at any time, Sit thou on my right hand, Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation?) (But the head of the Bride is the Man-child who is shown in all the scripture to take down the factious Edomites. A Christian brother had a dream where the Lord quoted the following text to speak of the David Man-childs in whom Jesus lives. Isa 11:1-5 And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit. 2 And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. 3 And his delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears; 4 but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his waist, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins.) Suddenly, I felt a dark presence behind me and I turned around to see a large black dog the size of a Great Dane. (This great dog is a factious person we know.) Its ears were clipped like a Doberman Pincher. I asked the police officer what it was doing? He said, “Some of them are turning themselves in because there is nowhere left to go and no other choice.” (They are coming under the authority of these angels because of their great sins. They have "no other choice".) It came into the warehouse through a large open bay door and was turning itself in to the authorities because the round up campaign was so wide and far reaching that there was nowhere else for it to go. None of the dogs realized that a death sentence was decreed for them and some were turning themselves in in hopes of leniency. (Hopefully, some may repent and be saved right before they die.)

Fallen is Babylon Revelation 18 by William Klock Sometimes gospel—good news—isn't what we expect.  The gospel is a multifaceted message, but the church in every age has a tendency to focus on one part of it, while deemphasising or even ignoring others.  John wrote his letter to the churches of Asia in part to get them straight on this kind of problem.  We do the same thing in our ways.  We modern, western Christians have a tendency to emphasise the personal aspects of the gospel over the corporate.  We tend to view the gospel as a primarily spiritual thing.  And we emphasise those parts of the gospel that are most likely to make people feel good, while down-playing or ignoring what might make them feel bad.  Some aspects of the gospel just confuse us—so we sort of pretend they aren't there.  Such is our passage today, which continues—and more-or-less—concludes John's vision of God's judgement on Rome. So what do we do with judgement in the Bible?  I don't think we have a problem with judgement itself—maybe we don't, but some do.  I mentioned a couple of weeks ago the Canadian prayer book, which butchered the Psalter, because its revisers back in the 1950s concluded that the imprecatory psalms have no place in Christian worship.  But it's not just the Psalmist who pleads with the Lord for the judgement of the wicked and then praises their fall.  From the Israelites joyfully singing about the victory of God over Egypt while they watched the dead bodies of Pharoah's army float on the waters to Isaiah singing “Fallen is Babylon and shattered are her gods!” to Mary's song in which she praises the Lord for throwing down the mighty from their seats, Brothers and Sisters, God's people have always and still ought to plead for his judgement on the wicked then praise his victories.  We plead for deliverance and we pray for an end to evil and for his justice to prevail.  When he answers our prayers, we shouldn't be squeamish about singing joyfully in praise that he has defeated his enemies.  But for some reason we are.  I know Friday's Supreme Court ruling in the States isn't much consolation for Canadians.  I'm not inclined to get overly enthusiastic about what it means for the US.  It's a return to Federalism on the issue of abortion and it remains to be seen what the States will do in light of it.  But it's a victory, it's a big one, it's and answer to fifty years of prayer, even if only in part.  And Christians ought to rejoice and to praise God.  But if you've done that on social media in the last few days, there's a good chance you got rebuked for it by other Christians.  Why?  Because we're squeamish about judgement and about praising God when he defeats his enemies.  But the Lord defeating his enemies and the enemies of his people is good news, it's gospel.  Back in Revelation 14 John wrote about the angel who came declaring gospel—good news—and that the good news was a proclamation of judgement and a summons to repentance: “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water” (14:7).  It's an echo of the gospel St. Paul proclaimed to the men of Athens: “Turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them” (Acts 14:15).  Or, as we sing from Psalm 96 in Morning Prayer, “For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth; and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.”  So our passage today, Revelation 18, is timely.  Let's look at verses 1-3. After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory.  And he called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!          She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit,          a haunt for every unclean bird,          a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. For all nations have drunk          the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,          and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”   The great prostitute John saw in Chapter 17, the woman deceptively clothed in fine garments and expensive jewelry, whose chalice of wine contained only filth and abominations—who invited the nations to join her in her fun—fun which consisted of rank idolatry, the murder of the Lord Jesus, and the persecution of his people—the great prostitute has fallen. And John's imagery, borrowed from the Old Testament prophets, gives us another lesson—some important insight into how biblical prophecy works and how we ought to read it.  I've spent quite a bit of time explaining that when John wrote of “Babylon”, he was writing about Rome.  But not everyone reads the text that way.  Others will tell you that “Babylon” was Jerusalem.  And there are others who will tell you that “Babylon” is Rome, but not historical Rome, but some Rome of the future—maybe the Roman Church or some future European empire.  I don't know if it's still a popular theory, but back in the 70s and 80s, a lot of people saw here the European Union—especially when it had only ten nations—ten horns and all of that.  Now, if we just read the text and if we read it with the big biblical narrative in mind, it's really obvious—inescapable, I think—that John was speaking of Rome in his own day.  The problem for a lot of folks is that they don't know how to read biblical prophecy and if John was talking about historic Rome, then it all looks like a failed prophecy.  Rome didn't cease to exist.  It wasn't demolished to leave a barren wasteland as the angel's song describes.  Some interpreters then turn to Jerusalem.  That is, more or less, what did happen to Jerusalem—although not in a.d. 70.  John describes the fall of Jerusalem in terms of the events that were soon to unfold, and yet things settled down quickly after the war with Rome and Jewish life returned to a kind of normal in Jerusalem, albeit with the temple gone.  It wouldn't be until after the Bar Kokhba Revolt, a little over fifty years later, that Jerusalem really would be wiped out and the Jewish people scattered.  That right there gives us a hint at how we ought to be reading things.  But, similarly, since these things didn't literally happen to Rome, others respond by pushing it all into the far future.  They try to save John's prophecy, but in doing that they undermine the clear teaching of Jesus and the apostles that judgement was soon to come.  It helps if we look at how John uses the Old Testament prophets.  Here he draws from the passage from Isaiah 21 that I read earlier: “Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the carved images of her gods          he has shattered to the ground.”   Babylon, in the Old Testament, embodied opposition to the Lord.  It all went back to the Tower of Babel and only got worse from there.  And Babylon wasn't satisfied to keep her idolatrous harlotries to herself.  For centuries she afflicted Israel, eventually conquering Jerusalem and taking God's people into exile.  One of the keys for understanding Revelation is to remember that the prophets—like Isaiah—had warned Israel that her conquest by pagan armies was judgement for her own adulteries.  This the historical pattern given meaning by the prophets: Israel, the Lord's bride, is rebellious and plays the harlot with foreign gods.  The Lord is patient, but she continues to be unfaithful.  So the Lord judges Israel by allowing her to be defeated by her pagan neighbours—in this case Babylon.  Judgement brings Israel to repentance—at least for a while—and the Lord vindicates her by then judging the pagan nations that had oppressed her.  That's the pattern we see in Revelation.  First the Lord uses pagan Rome to bring judgement on rebellious Jerusalem.  Through it he spares and vindicates his people.  Then he comes in judgement on Rome herself.  This is why John uses Babylon as an image of Rome.  Isaiah writes that Babylon would be a haunt of jackals and hyenas—and demons, too, in the Greek OT (Isaiah 34:13-14). Jeremiah writes: Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD'S hand,          making all the earth drunken; the nations drank of her wine;          therefore the nations went mad.  (Jeremiah 51:7) And the prophet Nahum wrote: And all for the countless whorings of the prostitute,          graceful and of deadly charms, who betrays nations with her whorings,          and peoples with her charms.  (Nahum 3:4) John also draws on Ezekiel's oracle against the city of Tyre: When your wares came from the seas,          you satisfied many peoples; with your abundant wealth and merchandise          you enriched the kings of the earth.  (Ezekiel 27:33)   So, like Babylon (and like Tyre), Rome will fall because of her idolatry, because of her wickedness, and because she has spilled the blood of Jesus and the saints.  But did Babylon fall?  If we take Isaiah and the other Old Testament prophets literally, we have the same problem we have with John.  John writes later, in verse 21, that Babylon (Rome) will “be thrown down with violence and will be found no more”—which certainly didn't happen literally.  Rome has had its problems, it would even be defeated and the city sacked by enemies, but there's a reason it's called the “Eternal City”.  And despite Jeremiah writing that Babylon would be “a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert”, “her walls…thrown down”, “overthrown like Sodom and Gomorrah, no one will live there”, it was many centuries before the city of Babylon eventually declined.  Babylon was defeated, as the prophets said it would be, by the Medes, but they didn't destroy the city.  They diverted the river and sneaked into the city while its people were having a holiday.  The Medes and the Persians made Babylon their capital and it flourished for centuries.  What this shows us is that prophetic language of judgement isn't necessarily literal.  It's dramatic and over-the-top.  It often speaks of judgement in terms of de-creation: the sun ceasing to shine, stars falling from the sky, the ground itself falling apart and opening up to swallow armies and cities.  The key point of the Old Testament prophets and of John in Revelation, is that the oppressors and persecutors of the Lord's people will face his wrathful and righteous judgement in repayment for their deeds.  Nebuchadnezzar was defeated and his kingdom destroyed, leading to the restoration of Israel in Judea, even though Babylon remained under different management.  Similarly, Rome will be defeated in such a way that the Christians martyrs would be vindicated and the way paved for the triumph of the gospel over this once pagan empire.  The gods of Rome will be shattered and Caesar's claims of divinity will be exposed in the light of the gospel, which proclaims Jesus as the true son of God.  Caesar will be defeated and Jesus will reign—and the world would see the birth of “Christendom” as we called it for centuries.  Why does is it work this way?  Because even though God did not create man to govern man, but to live under his kingship, he has ordained earthly kings and governments to curb the chaos of the fall.  As St. Paul writes, governing authorities are established by God to reward those who do good and to be a terror to those who do evil.  But when that gets reversed, particularly when those authorities persecute God's people, he will bring his justice and take them down.  Nebuchadnezzar was taken down and the Medes took his place and Cyrus return the Israelites to Judea.  Good rules—or less bad ones, at any rate, will replace the wicked.  And just so with Nero and his ilk. At this point a second angel joins the first.  Look at verses 4-8. Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people,          lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped high as heaven,          and God has remembered her iniquities. Pay her back as she herself has paid back others,          and repay her double for her deeds;          mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed. As she glorified herself and lived in luxury,          so give her a like measure of torment and mourning, since in her heart she says,          ‘I sit as a queen, I am no widow,          and mourning I shall never see.' For this reason her plagues will come in a single day,          death and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire;          for mighty is the Lord God who has judged her.”   In light of the coming judgement, the angel warns Jesus' people to get out—not necessarily literally, but not to have anything to do with the wickedness and the idolatry of the pagans.  This echoes the warnings to the churches at the beginning of Revelation.  The great prostitute is, again, deceptively attractive.  Her wine looks appealing and everyone else is drunk on it.  Rome and all the nations submitted to her have the appearance of wealth and security.  In contrast, those little groups of Christians were facing opposition—and it was soon to get worse—and all because they proclaimed Jesus as Lord instead of Caesar.  They were the ones willing to openly say that the emperor had no clothes—or that the harlot's chalice was full of filth—but that's not what anyone wanted to hear.  Compromise was so enticing and so easy.  A pinch of incense offered to Caesar, a meal in the temple of Aphrodite—never mind the orgy going on—and everyone would accept you.  But Israel had tried that, offering sacrifices to the Lord in his temple, but also erecting altars to Baal and Asherah.  It never works.  You cannot serve two masters.  Either Jesus is Lord or he isn't.  And Babylon is a graphic testament to what happens to those who worship false gods—and soon Rome will be, too.  So, “Come out of her my people, lest you take part in her sins,” calls the angel. Her sins are heaped high.  In other words, her judgment is overdue and coming soon.  She will be paid back.  In fact, she'll be paid back double for her deeds.  The angel echoes Jeremiah's prophecy against Babylon: Repay her according to her deeds; do to her according to all that she has done. For she has proudly defied the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. (Jeremiah 50:29) Now, the long middle section of the chapter shows us the response of the nations as they stand watching Rome's fall.  They were once drunk on the prostitute's wine, but the Lord's judgement sobers them up quickly—as the one in whom they had invested everything now falls.  Look at verse 9 and following:   And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning.    John echoes Ezekiel's prophecy of Babylon's fall: The merchants among the peoples hiss at you;          you have come to a dreadful end          and shall be no more forever.'” (Ezekiel 27:36)   One of the thing that stands out here is that this isn't the end of the world.  This is a judgment that happens in history as the nations watch.  Continuing… They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, “Alas! Alas! You great city,          you mighty city, Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come.”   And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo anymore, cargo of gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple cloth, silk, scarlet cloth, all kinds of scented wood, all kinds of articles of ivory, all kinds of articles of costly wood, bronze, iron and marble, cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves, that is, human souls.   Slavery is what made the ancient world turn, and especially Rome and it was the sanctifying influence of the gospel that eventually brought it to an end, as with so many other things: human sacrifice, gladiatorial games, and abortion and infanticide.  Jesus spoke about being salt and light and that's just what those first Christians were and by the gospel they taught the pagans mercy and the value of life.  But in the meantime, the nations mourn.  The prostitute and her chalice are gone.  The party is over.  And the angel's imagery draws very closely on Ezekiel's prophecy of Tyre's destruction: At the sound of the cry of your pilots          the countryside shakes, and down from their ships          come all who handle the oar. The mariners and all the pilots of the sea          stand on the land and shout aloud over you          and cry out bitterly. They cast dust on their heads          and wallow in ashes;  (Ezekiel 27:28-30) This is key, because the reason Ezekiel says that Tyre was judged was because it's king had boasted: “I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods” (Ezekiel 28:1).  Now it's Caesar's turn to be brought low for his blasphemies.  In the meantime the nations continue to mourn:   “The fruit for which your soul longed          has gone from you, and all your delicacies and your splendors          are lost to you,          never to be found again!”   The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from her, will stand far off, in fear of her torment, weeping and mourning aloud, “Alas, alas, for the great city          that was clothed in fine linen,                          in purple and scarlet,          adorned with gold,                          with jewels, and with pearls! For in a single hour all this wealth has been laid waste.” And all shipmasters and seafaring men, sailors and all whose trade is on the sea, stood far off and cried out as they saw the smoke of her burning, “What city was like the great city?”   And they threw dust on their heads as they wept and mourned, crying out, “Alas, alas, for the great city          where all who had ships at sea          grew rich by her wealth! For in a single hour she has been laid waste. Rejoice over her, O heaven,          and you saints and apostles and prophets, for God has given judgment for you against her!” (Revelation 18:9-20) The suitors of the harlot mourn, but notice that the angels calls out to God's people: “Rejoice!”  Specifically, “Rejoice over her—over fallen Rome—because God has judged her.”  And not just that, notice the angel makes the point, “God has given judgement for you against her!”  This is the vindication of the saints.  God has judged the wicked on behalf of all those saints in those little churches in Asia Minor and across the empire—the saints who were mocked, maligned, and even martyred, the saints who watched as their brothers and sisters died in the arena or were crucified and lit on fire to light Nero's garden parties.  For you God has judged the harlot.  Brothers and Sisters, the Lord hears the cries of his people.  He heard the Hebrews crying out from their bondage in Egypt.  He heard the Israelites crying out from their captivity in Babylon.  He heard his Church crying out from their persecution by Rome.  And for the Lord to hear is always for the Lord to answer.  And the natural response is for the song of praise sung by the redeemed to be even louder than the lament of those wailing over their judgement.  In Proverbs we read the truth that “when justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous” even as it is “terror to evildoers”.  Brothers and Sisters, rejoice and praise God for his triumph, even as the wicked wail and lament. Finally, now, verses 21-24.  The joyful song of the saints is contrasted with the deathly silence of the judged city. Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence,          and will be found no more; and the sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters,          will be heard in you no more, and a craftsman of any craft          will be found in you no more, and the sound of the mill          will be heard in you no more, and the light of a lamp          will shine in you no more, and the voice of bridegroom and bride          will be heard in you no more, for your merchants were the great ones of the earth,          and all nations were deceived by your sorcery. And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints,          and of all who have been slain on earth.” (Revelation 18:21-24) Jeremiah wrote: When you finish reading this book, tie a stone to it and cast it into the midst of the Euphrates, and say, ‘Thus shall Babylon sink, to rise no more, because of the disaster that I am bringing upon her, and they shall become exhausted.'”   The description of the musicians being silenced is straight from Ezekiel's oracle against Tyre: And I will stop the music of your songs, and the sound of your lyres shall be heard no more.  (Ezekiel 26:13) The bit about Rome deceiving the nations by her sorcery calls back to Nahum's denouncement of Nineveh: And all for the countless whorings of the prostitute,          graceful and of deadly [sorceries], who betrays nations with her whorings,          and peoples with her [sorceries].  (Nahum 3:4) I don't think anyone amongst John's readers would have struggled to rejoice at these words of judgement, but the angel does drive home the point one more time in verse 20.  He reminds us that in her was the blood of the prophets and saints.  He even goes a step further, saying that the bloodguilt of all who have been slain lies with her.  Rome wasn't guilty of every murder that ever happened, but remember that behind the prostitute and behind the beast lies the dragon, the Satan.  Rome was the current embodiment, the height of human wickedness, all fed by the lies of the devil.  The devil and all the world's wickedness rose up to its full height at the cross when Jesus was put to death.  Evil, concentrated all in one place, did its worst and was dealt a death blow by God.  And, once again in Rome and with the persecution of Jesus' people it rose up again, and yet again God would strike it down.  That's the promise here.  Remember John's three themes: tribulation, perseverance, and kingdom.  The saints are not walking anywhere that Jesus has not gone before them and the Lord will vindicate them just as he vindicated Jesus.  They would know mourning, but judgement was coming.  It was a sure thing.  And not too far in the future they would have reason to rejoice as the millstone that was Caesar and Rome was cast into the sea to make way for the gospel of Jesus the Messiah. Brothers and Sisters, there's a word here for us, too.  We will know new Romes and Babylons before the Lord returns.  We will know opposition and maybe even persecution, tribulation, and martyrdom.  Persevere.  Know that Jesus is Lord.  Do not be enticed by the harlot and her chalice.  Pray for her downfall, for her downfall, as it always has been, will open the way for our proclamation of the gospel.  When that day comes—and it always does—praise the Lord for his righteousness and his faithfulness, and go forth with the good news.  For Christ has died.  Christ is risen.  Christ will come again. Let's pray: O Lord God, the unfailing helper and governor of those whom you bring up in your steadfast fear and love: Keep us, we pray, under the protection of your good providence and give us a continual reverence and love for your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Sign of the Man-child Birth and Anointing (Audio) David Eells - 6/15/22 Journey to Kazakhstan Garrett Crawford - 6/10/22 (David's notes in red) I had a very vivid dream that I was inside the continental United States. I started a journey, that took me from the US and into ‘Iran', and lastly my final destination was ‘Kazakhstan'. For some reason Iran and Kazakhstan were actually inside the United States. (Kazakhstan birthed the Khazarians who are our DS Babylon faction which is in US and throughout the World. Iran represents the apostate church system in the US. The Iranians are Semites like the Jews and not Hamites like the Arabs. Their leadership apostasized and factioned against their brothers like the factions in Church and state now. And as we will see, within Kazakhstan, is the Bride that the Man-child is to be born out of. In a Dream Garrett had back in 2020, there was a virgin girl in Kazakhstan who was about to give birth to the Man-child. The Khazarians became a nomadic people and have been a criminal entity many times called the DS. To be born in Kazakhstan is to be born from Babylon as Zerubbabel, was a type of the Man-child whose name means, “Born from Babylon.") In the dream, Iran was a place where many of my unsaved childhood friends lived and had assimilated into the native culture there. (The unsaved childhood friends represent factions in apostate Christianity because they are spiritually stunted in their growth. 1 Co 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child: now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things.) I realized it was very dangerous for me to be there. (Because of their faction. Worldly Christianity is factioned and cannot see one another's points of view.)  I was not sure why I really needed to go to Kazakhstan in the dream. The dream ended with me leaving Iran and making my way to Kazakhstan. (Kazakhstan representing Babylon DS is a dangerous place because of their depopulation agenda.) There was a little house that I saw in a vision that I was to go to. When I woke up I remembered this dream and words from 2020… (The little house is the House of the David Man-child reformers that is being rebuilt.)   The Lord Induces Labor of the Man-child  Garrett Crawford - 5/25/20 (David's notes in red) In this dream I was walking up to a large coliseum. (A coliseum is a place of larger and larger circles of people representing an exponential revelation being passed on.) It was a large venue and an event was going to happen inside. I remember I was quite early for the show; they were not letting anyone in just yet. As I was in front of the coliseum, I saw David Eells walking over to me. I could not believe he was there too. It was a pleasant surprise. We had a brief conversation and as we were talking we saw a group of protesters across the street making some commotion. They kind of caught my attention but David told me not to pay them any mind. (The factious apostates in the Church and state protest and fight against the Man-child and the Bride and against God Himself.) I walked away from David and then walked back up near the coliseum and saw a man standing behind a table... But he had a lot of materials on his table and he was giving them out. Although he doesn't really exist in real life in the dream, He was David's right hand man, and assistant pastor. (He is not a physical individual person but a representation of many pastors who pass on the Man-child's wisdom and knowledge.) ... I was quite familiar with the assistant. (And we are with many of them)  He was very happy to see me and I him. We talked for a while and he had great news to tell me. (The good news of the Gospel that sets people free is always great news.) He said, "UBM has an orphanage or mission in Kazakhstan and the surrounding area. God is doing many mighty works there." (Yes He is. Kazakhstan is a land that had been conquered by the mongols but was later set free. The Mongols were a fierce and vicious people who regarded not the lives of others and were factious against all, very much like the D-S which has also conquered many lands that are now being set free. UBM does have an orphanage and mission in other countries. The pastors hand out UBM materials in the midst of peoples who are just like the vicious factious protesters mentioned above. We can't mention these people specifically for now because the faction has already tried to spiritually kill them.)  He told me the Man-child is about to be birthed and they know the young girl in whom He is coming. She was a poor virgin girl in the Church (Among the factious peoples) there in Kazakstan and she is with child. (Rev 14:1-5 And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty and four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. … 3 and they sing as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn the song save the hundred and forty and four thousand, even they that had been purchased out of the earth. 4 These are they that were not defiled with women (factions); for they are virgins. These are they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, to be the firstfruits unto God and unto the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no lie: they are without blemish.) He said they have seen the sign that He was ready to be birthed. I said "But it's too soon!" He said "No, He is coming and we have seen the sign!” (We have been shown that the Man-child is coming sooner than many believe; He will come early.) (Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh.) As he was explaining all this to me in greater detail, I had a vision of the womb of the young girl and I could see the fetus of the Man-child. It was a supernatural fetus, translucent and luminous... It was not a normal flesh and blood fetus but a supernatural one. (A spiritual virgin birth. Jesus said He is coming again in the Man-child, and that by Word and Spirit. Joh 16:21-22  A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but when she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for the joy that a man is born into the world.  22  And ye therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.)   As he continued speaking my vision continued: I saw a hand stick what appeared to be a hooked rod like a tiny little shepherd's rod inside the womb of the mother. (David received the heart of a shepherd defending the sheep from the lion and bear before he was birthed as the anointed Man-child King.)  The rod was meant to induce labor, I saw the little rod scrape against the umbilical cord and at that very moment the little fetus made a quick reaction and assumed the position of a woman who was about to give birth. He was mimicking a woman in her labor position, knees up and legs open. It reminded me when a drill sergeant gives a command to a disciplined soldier and he stands at attention immediately. This little fetus reacted just as fast to the command. I was very impressed with the little guy. He was so little, not even a full grown baby yet but had an intelligence that was beyond his age. When I saw this vision I had trouble comprehending how such a small fetus was ready to be birthed, but labor was being induced and he was coming out regardless. (We have had many dreams of the Man-child being birthed and maturing very rapidly; even walking and talking right after birth. However this Man-child is maturing rapidly even in the womb as we will see.) (I feel like we have to be prepared that the Man-child will come sooner than we think or what he has planned for. Usually, a baby is born at 9 months but this baby was only about 5 or 6 months gestation.)   Christmas, the Man-child is Coming! David Eells - 6/7/22 On 6/7/22 I went out to sit on the porch and saw a pine tree lit up with lights that flickered on and off as droplets of water on the tree were reflecting the sun that was at just the right angle. It was beautiful and very surprising. I said, "Christmas, the Man-child is coming.” (In the natural, the holiday of Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus since it is actually the celebration of the birth of Tammuz. But the Lord will often use Christmas in dreams to represent the coming of the Man-child in our day since people relate Christmas to the birth of Jesus.) I thought, “If Michael would hurry back, I would have a witness because some wouldn't believe this.” Even though I thought God was using a natural phenomenon. I took a picture but the lights didn't show up.  Michael did come back and I showed it to him and he saw it and tried to use his phone camera but it wouldn't pick up the tiny lights even though they were very bright. I said to him, "Christmas, the Man-child is coming”. He thought it was very surprising too. Then I received the next two revelations right after...   Christmas Tree with a Dove  Vanessa Weeks - 6/6/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that I was in our living room and I saw a small Christmas tree in the corner. I went over to it and saw that there were several ornaments on it.  (  Eze 17:22-23  Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I will also take of the lofty top of the cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and I will plant it upon a high and lofty mountain:  23  in the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it; and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all birds of every wing; in the shade of the branches thereof shall they dwell.  This is speaking of the Man-child reformers represented by the topmost young twigs of the cedar tree.)   I was amazed to see it, and I thought, "Why is this tree here? We don't celebrate Christmas, and Christmas was months ago." (I think this points to the birth of the Man-child ministry rather than the pagan holiday. The branches made me think of  Isa 11:1-4  And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. 3  And his delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears; 4  but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.) (Some mistake this for Jesus' first coming but Jesus didn't slay the wicked. It is when He returns in the Man-child that He will judge and slay the wicked. A friend had a dream that this was speaking of the David/ Man-childs.) All the ornaments were white on this very green tree, but the only one I remember was a large white dove, on a branch toward the top of the tree. (Representing the latter rain anointing of the Holy Spirit upon the Man-child reformers.) Mar 1:9  And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. 10  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him: 11  and a voice came out of the heavens, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased. (And, as we saw, Jesus is coming again as a Man-child in John 16.) I thought of this dream when David talked about the evergreen tree (which represents eternal life.) and Winnie's dream of Christmas.     Christmas Eve/What is Coming   Winnie Osegueda - 6/8/22 (David's notes in red) ... I prayed and asked the Lord to show me what was coming and when I fell asleep He gave me the following dream: I dreamt that I was in a very nice suburban area and it was the evening time of Christmas Eve. (Wow Christmas again!  Another confirmation that the baby boy Man-child is coming.) I could see all the houses decorated with colorful Christmas lights throughout this neighborhood on my left. My mother's house was also located on the left side of this suburban neighborhood. (Winnie's mom is being used to represent the apostate church that all of God's elect are born out of. Many apostates are in idolatry with the world and its traditions of men represented by the celebration of Christmas which is a pagan holiday. There is a connection between the modern day Christmas tree and the ancient symbol for the fertility goddess named Asherah  Jer. 10:1-5 Hear ye the word which Jehovah speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 thus saith Jehovah, Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are vanity; for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are like a palm-tree, of turned work, and speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.) There was a remake of an older movie being made except it wasn't actually a movie; it was really happening. Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.   I recognized and remembered this old movie that they were remaking and it was starring Kiefer Sutherland (... Keifer Sutherland is an actor who played a great villain in movies in the 80s and 90s, and he was a villain in the movie in this dream as well). (The meaning of the name “Keifer” is a German nick name for someone who was quarrelsome, from an agent of Middle High German kiben, kiven 'to quarrel'. All of the factious are quarrelsome.) They brought in a new "actor" for the remake of this movie who looked just like a younger, rounder-faced version of Kiefer Sutherland. His haircut was like the one Kiefer Sutherland had in the movie "The Lost Boys," a film in which he played a vampire. ("The life of the flesh is in the blood." The spiritual vampires of the apostate churches who are “lost” children who “bite and devour” and suck the life out of people with their contentious and slanderous ways.) Because I had already seen and knew this movie very well, I knew that this Kiefer Sutherland look-alike had a plan to enter into each suburban home in this neighborhood and kill every family. I could see him lurking in the shadows of his brick house spying on the neighborhood through his window on the top floor. (Their leaders are stalkers and “peeping Tom's”.) These families were not suspicious, as he made himself appear to be trustworthy and friendly… (Rom 16:17-18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them.  18  For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent. Remember, they are actors.) I was now inside my mother's home... and this new "actor" was there as well. He handed my mother a box of Marlboro Red cigarettes and she accepted them. (She actually smoked these in real life when I was much younger.)  As soon as this actor walked off, I said "NO! NO! Why did you accept them?! Now you're marked!" and she said "I like Marlboro Reds, so if he gives me Marlboro Reds, I'm going to take them.” (The cigarettes represent receiving bad and false spirits.) (Breath and spirit are the same word and taking in smoke represents taking in an unclean spirit. If you receive slander from a factious person, you will receive that same spirits.)  She seemed to be very bothered by my objections to her receiving these cigarettes, but I knew how this movie was going to play out, so I was desperately trying to warn her to no avail. (Many in apostasy aren't heeding our warnings currently. They will have to experience judgment before they turn back to righteousness, and still, many won't repent of their wickedness and they will be killed spiritually with an eternal death.) At this point, I knew that this actor was going to come back and kill her because she was marked, and that I had to go. I couldn't stay with her there, or I would be killed as well, as much as it pained me to know what was going to happen. I didn't understand why no one else could see what was happening here. Since this movie was a remake of an old film, it should have been obvious what was going on, but it wasn't to them. (I know people who have seen this happen to others fall into the trap because of disobedience. John 12:37-40  But though he had done so many signs before them, yet they believed not on him: 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39 For this cause they could not believe, for that Isaiah said again, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and he hardened their heart; Lest they should see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, And should turn, And I should heal them.) I left this suburban area to find an escape and I entered into the city. I stopped by a clothing store that I used to go to when I was younger. (We should not shrink back represented by visiting the younger clothing store. Heb. 10:39 But we are not of them that shrink back unto perdition; but of them that have faith unto the saving of the soul.)  I recognized one of the women that worked there in the dream, but not in real life. She was an overweight black lady with a fake ponytail. (This represents people who are walking in darkness; who feed the flesh.) She met me outside with a hug and said "Merry Christmas!" I said Merry Christmas as well ... (I don't personally celebrate Christmas, but I believe the Lord is just using this as a parable.) (A parable of judgment on the apostates at the time of the Man-child's birth.)  I noticed that I had a large overweight, gray, striped cat with me and it walked into the store. The cat wanted to stay behind and I agreed that it was best, because I could not escape what was happening with this cat tagging along. (The fat cat represents an abundance of flesh, self will and rebellion. These people will not escape the faction demons because they must be separated from the Bride and ultimately the body itself.) I thought about the verse Hebrews 12:1-2  Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.) (We must leave the weight of our rebellious sin nature behind, represented by the fat, grey cat, if we want to escape the judgment of faction that is coming.) The lady in the store agreed that the cat could remain there in the store, but again, I was sad because I knew what was coming and that they would not be safe if they did not escape. This "actor" would come and kill them too, including the cat. (Psa 37:38 As for transgressors, (or “rebellious”) they shall be destroyed together; The end of the wicked shall be cut off. And 2Pe 2:12  But these, as creatures without reason, born mere animals to be taken and destroyed, railing in matters whereof they are ignorant, shall in their destroying surely be destroyed.) I left the store and continued up a flight of stairs to leave this area as well, and then I woke up. The dream felt so real that when I woke up I felt like this was still happening, and I was trying to figure out what movie this was that they were trying to remake. (The people who don't learn from His-story are doomed to repeat it.) I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random and received: Joel 2:19 (15-20 in context)  Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly; 16 gather the people, sanctify the assembly, assemble the old men, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. (Notice: At the time of the attempted attack on the Bride she and the Man-child will be revealed and delivered.) 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thy heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the peoples, Where is their God? 18 Then was the Lord jealous for his land, and had pity on his people. 19 And the Lord answered and said unto his people, Behold, I will send you grain, and new wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith; and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations; 20 but I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, its forepart into the eastern sea, and its hinder part into the western sea; and its stench shall come up, and its ill savor shall come up, because it hath done great things. (The northern army is like Pharoah's army at the Red Sea. It is the end of the persecutors and the beginning of the wilderness tribulation.)   Come up Here Vanessa Weeks - 6/10/22 (David's notes in red) As I was praying in the Spirit on 6/10/22 I saw a staircase going up to heaven, and a man, which I saw from the back, was walking up it and I heard, "Come up here.” (The Man-child reformers will be caught up to the Throne of authority soon to bring God's people through the wilderness tribulation.) Rev 4:1  After these things I saw, and behold, a door opened in heaven, and the first voice that I heard, a voice as of a trumpet speaking with me, one saying, Come up here and I will show thee the things which must come to pass hereafter. (The tribulation.) Joh 1:51  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. Pro 25:6  Put not thyself forward in the presence of the king, And stand not in the place of great men: 7  For better is it that it be said unto thee, Come up hither, Than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom thine eyes have seen.  I believe the Lord is giving us a picture of the soon anointing of the Man-Child! Thank you Father.   Vision of Bride Chosen at the Throne  Claire Pienaar - 5/25/22  (David's notes in red) I had a quick vision of myself in front of Jesus' throne. I was bigger than I am in real life, as was the throne and the setting. (I believe this “larger than life” presentation of myself in the dream denotes the corporate body of the Bride).   There was a very good looking and well-dressed man walking all around me and sizing me up. He reminded me of a very well-known fashion designer who can, just by looking at his models, make clothing that fits them perfectly. (This man represents satan, the accuser of the brethren, who always tries to get the Bride to put on garments of filth or unrighteousness.)  I had a veil over my head, but not my face. I was glowing. Jesus put out his hand to me and said, “I choose you”. Then I started telling this man to stop. I did not speak, but I was rebuking this man's words and actions in my mind. (Rev. 12:10-11 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. And James 4:7 Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.) The man who was sizing me up could not dress me up the way he wanted and I began glowing even more. (Rev. 19:7-8 Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and let us give the glory unto him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.) Jesus turned to say something to Father, but I could not hear it. As I reached out to touch Jesus' hand, similar to how Esther waited for Ahasuerus to hold out the golden sceptre, I woke up.     Select LanguageAfrikaansAlbanianAmharicArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBengaliBosnianBulgarianCatalanCebuanoChichewaChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CorsicanCroatianCzechDanishDutchEsperantoEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchFrisianGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekGujaratiHaitian CreoleHausaHawaiianHebrewHindiHmongHungarianIcelandicIgboIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseJavaneseKannadaKazakhKhmerKinyarwandaKoreanKurdish (Kurmanji)KyrgyzLaoLatinLatvianLithuanianLuxembourgishMacedonianMalagasyMalayMalayalamMalteseMaoriMarathiMongolianMyanmar (Burmese)NepaliNorwegianOdia (Oriya)PashtoPersianPolishPortuguesePunjabiRomanianRussianSamoanScots GaelicSerbianSesothoShonaSindhiSinhalaSlovakSlovenianSomaliSpanishSundaneseSwahiliSwedishTajikTamilTatarTeluguThaiTurkishTurkmenUkrainianUrduUyghurUzbekVietnameseWelshXhosaYiddishYorubaZulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

Blessed is the One Who Stays Awake Revelation 16 By William Klock There's an old story of a clergyman, who out of concern for a parishioner who had been absent for some time, went to visit her at home.  He saw her car in the driveway.  The drapes were drawn, but he could see the lights were one.  He could hear the faint sound of the TV.  She was clearly home.  He knocked on the door and waited.  No answer.  Then he heard the TV go silent.  He knocked again.  Still no answer.  He waited.  Out of the corner of his eye he saw a faint movement of the living room drapes, as if someone had peeked around the edge.  Still no answer.  He rang the doorbell and waited again.  Still nothing.  He sighed, pulled one of his cards from his pocket, and slipped it into the front door's weather stripping.  Then he had an idea.  If anyone needed to read her Bible, it was she.  So he took the card back, pulled out his pen, and wrote on the back “Revelation 3:20”—“Behold, I stand at the door and knock”—and slipped the card back into the weatherstripping.  “She'll have to look that one up,” he thought, “and maybe she'll keep reading while her Bible's open.”  He rang the bell one more time, waited again, and left. On Sunday morning he was pleased to see that the woman was in church, but she left too quickly for him to greet her.  Then, as he was getting ready to leave the church, one of the wardens approached, holding a little card.  “It was in the offering plate,” the warden said as he handed it to him.  The priest took the card and saw it was one of his own.  He turned it over and saw the Bible reference he'd written: “Revelation 3:20”.  Underneath it the woman had written another: “Genesis 3:10”.  He laughed.  That's Adam's answer to the Lord, “I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.” Revelation 16 continues with the Lord's judgement on Greco-Roman world.  We looked at Chapter 15 two weeks ago and saw the announcement of seven plagues, carried by seven angles in bowls like those used for drink offerings in the temple.  In Chapter 16 we'll now see those plagues poured out—the wrath of God revealed.  And in the middle of the plagues John stops—in verse 15—to give a warning to God's people: “Behold, I am coming like a thief!  Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”   It's a warning from Jesus for his Church to stay alert and on guard—not to be distracted, but to be diligently about the work he's given.  He gave similar warnings to the churches at Sardis and Laodicea.  The reference is to an officer in the temple in John's day, who was tasked with making sure that the men on watch stayed awake.  He would make the rounds of the temple and if he caught anyone asleep, he would beat him.  If he found the same man asleep a second time, he would strip the man naked and burn his clothes.[1]  One commentator writes, “The danger is of being caught not momentarily but habitually off guard—not, to put it crudely, with trousers down, but without trousers at all.”[2] Consider Jesus' warning to the Christians in Sardis: Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. (Revelation 3:2) Brothers and Sisters, it is easy to become complacent.  Either we become complacent and neglect our calling to proclaim and to live out the good news about Jesus and to declare the mighty works of God.  Or we become complacent in that we become worldly.  We live in the world and it's easy to be unconsciously influenced by it when we keep our guard down and neglect to feed ourselves on God's word and to share in the means of grace found in the Church.  It's also easy to become complacent through wilful compromise with the world.  We face opposition and instead of standing firm, we compromise in the hopes that the world will oppose us less—maybe that they'll even like us.  We see an awful lot of this today.  Churches looking to attract “seekers” structure ministry and worship around what is attractive to unbelievers—which can be great when done thoughtfully and carefully, but disastrous when, as so often happens, we end up looking more like the world than the church.  Or we cozy up to the world's system, especially to politics—Left or Right—it can go either way.  When we allow ourselves to be overtaken by the world's ways of thinking, whether that be commercialism and materialism or expressive individualism, the sexual revolution, and post-modern gender theory.  Or—I think most appropriate in light of our text today—we water down our message.  Large parts of the Western Church today are hesitant to talk about sin and about the consequences of sin, about the wrath of God and of judgement.  H. Richard Niebuhr famous described the gospel of much of modern Christendom as: “A God without wrath brought men without sin into a kingdom without judgement through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.”[3]  Such a faith is worthless—for those who believe—and for the world to which it is proclaimed.  The Church that preaches such a message is no church at all and when God's judgement does come, such churches will be swept away with everything else not of the kingdom—caught naked and asleep at her post.  It's important that the Church be clear about the difference between the things of God and the things of the world, the difference between godliness and sin, and knowing the kingdom of God, and be able to persevere in the midst of tribulation—that, to use John's metaphor, we stay awake and keep our pants on. As John announces the judgement that was soon to come on the pagan world of Caesar, using the language of cataclysmic plagues, the Church was expected to recognise the judgement of God in the same way that Israel had seen, recognised, and praised the judgment of God on Pharaoh, the supposed god-king, and on his pantheon of false gods.  John saw those who had conquered the beast, like Israel of old watching Pharaoh's army drown, singing the praises of their victorious God.  Brothers and Sisters, God's people are called to singing of his victory for the sake of the world and, in doing so, we glorify him.  Now look at Chapter 16.  John writes: Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, “Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.”   Remember that in the last scene, John saw the heavenly tabernacle filled with smoke—so full that no one could enter.  And out came seven angels bearing bowls.  The image is of the priests of the old covenant bearing their drink offerings at the conclusion of the daily service.  Since no one could enter the heavenly tabernacle because of the smoke, this must be the voice of God directing the angels.  John then goes on: So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and harmful and painful sores came upon the people who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.   The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a corpse, and every living thing died that was in the sea.   The third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of water, and they became blood.  (Revelation 16:2-4) Just like the plagues poured out on rebellious Jerusalem, the plagues poured out on the pagan nations are meant to remind us of the plagues the Lord brought on Egypt.  First, painful sores reminiscent of the boils that afflicted the Egyptians.  Second, the sea turning to blood and then, third, the fresh waters turning to blood as well. In contrast to the plagues poured out on rebellious Jerusalem, these plagues are universal in scope.  The earlier plagues were limited—a third of the water, a third of the people.  I think the idea in this distinction is that when God disciplined his rebellious children, there was an opportunity for the pagan nations to see, to take heart, and to repent of their wickedness themselves.  Now that opportunity has passed.  The wine of God's wrath has been tread out in the winepress and the wicked peoples who drank the blood of the saints are now—metaphorically—left with nothing but putrid blood to drink. That raises another question?  Are these plagues meant to be understood literally?  I think it's fairly clear, given the context, that they are not.  The imagery draws on the Lord's past judgement on the nations that afflicted his people, first Egypt and then, we'll see, Babylon.  The point is that the Lord is now going to judge Rome.  Remember the point of Revelation: tribulation, perseverance, and kingdom.  Jesus' main purpose in giving John this vision is to encourage the saints to persevere in the midst of tribulation.  The great New Testament scholar, George Caird, puts it this way: “The theme of the whole series [i.e., the plagues] is neither the collapse of the physical universe nor the punishment of individual men for their personal contribution to the world's iniquity, both of which come later when the record books are opened…but the ending of persecution through the removal of the persecutor.”[4]  The angels underscore this when they sing out between the third and fourth plagues.  Look at verses 5 to 7: And I heard the angel in charge of the waters say, “Just are you, O Holy One, who is and who was,          for you brought these judgments. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,          and you have given them blood to drink. It is what they deserve!”   And I heard the altar saying, “Yes, Lord God the Almighty,          true and just are your judgments!”   The Lord's judgement vindicates his saints and brings justice on their persecutors.  The songs of the angels and of the altar—I assume these are the martyrs we saw earlier under the altar—the song is a needed reminder of the goodness of the Lord's judgement.  We modern Christians have often become uncomfortable with judgement—Niebuhr's God without wrath and kingdom without judgement.  One morning this week I left my prayer book at home.  I had left a Canadian prayer book on my desk—the 1962 edition—after looking up something in the lectionary last week, so I picked it up for Morning Prayer.  And I was jarred by the changes they made in the Psalter.  Wherever they could, they eliminated or watered down the passages that speak of or call for the Lord's judgement.  Whole psalms were removed.  Because modern Christians have—to our shame—become exceedingly uncomfortable with the topic of the wrath and judgement of God.  And yet, the angels sing here, it is God's justice which reveals his holiness.  Do we consider that when we sing “Holy, holy, holy Lord God almighty”?  And do we consider that it is the Lord's justice that is our consolation as we face a world that opposes us because it opposes him?  Brothers and Sisters, we need to remember that the Lord is revealed to be true and just because he judges wickedness and, in that, he deserves our praises.  There is no reason to preach the gracious mercy of the cross, if there is nothing from which we need deliverance. Now the fourth plague—verses 8 and 9: The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire.  They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues.  They did not repent and give him glory.   The fourth of the trumpets that announcement judgement on Jerusalem heralded a plague of darkness.  Now the fourth bowl brings the opposite.  It metaphorically highlights the Lord's vindication of his saints.  The martyrs we saw under the altar back in Chapter 7 were consoled with the words: They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;          the sun shall not strike them,          nor any scorching heat.  (Revelation 7:16) In contrast, the wicked are exposed to the full justice of the Lord.  And yet, even as they experience his wrath, like Pharaoh, their hearts are hardened.  They know the source of their affliction, but rather than repent, rather than turn from their evil and give him glory, they curse him. With the fifth bowl, the judgement narrows from the wider pagan world of the Greeks and Romans to its throne—to the heart and embodiment of its wickedness. The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness.  People gnawed their tongues in anguish and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores.  They did not repent of their deeds. (Revelation 16:10-11) The Lord's judgement now falls on the beast, on Caesar, on Nero himself.  Darkness—political chaos—descends on the empire.  In a.d. 69 the Senate declared Nero a public enemy.  He fled and committed suicide.  A year of chaos—referred to as the Year of the Four Emperors—ensued.  Galba became emperor.  He was murdered by Otho.  Meanwhile, Vitellius popular for his military victories in Germany, vied for the throne and won the support of the imperial guard.  Otho committed suicide.  But Vitellius had his own rival in the general, Vespasian, who was besieging Jerusalem.  In the end, Vespasian's supporters in the military outnumbered those of Vitellius, who abdicated and was promptly lynched by a mob in Rome.  It was a year of chaos and civil war.  But again, even as the beast was toppled from his throne, there was no repentance.  Nero, who had initiated the empire's persecution of the saints, was cast down, but in quick succession four others seized his throne and made the same blasphemous claims to divinity that he had. And the sixth bowl.  Verses 12-16: The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.  And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs.  For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.  (“Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”)  And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.   John has referred to Rome symbolically as Babylon—historically the great enemy of the people of God.  And now the symbolism of the judgements recalls the fall of Babylon, while at the same time conjuring up the great fear of Rome at that time.  Ancient Babylon fell to the Medes when the invaders diverted the Euphrates River so that they could enter the city.  Now it's Rome's turn to fall.  Rome's great enemy to the east was the Parthian empire—on the other side of the Euphrates.  In the midst of Rome's political chaos, war was coming.  John writes of the kings of the nations assembling to battle at a place called in Hebrew, Harmageddon—the Mount of Megiddo.  It's a little interesting in that there's no Mount Megiddo.  Megiddo is a valley between the mountains—the route from the coastal plain of Palestine to the interior, to Syria and Damascus.  For that reason it had a been a place of many battles.  Deborah and Barak had won their victory there in Judges.  It was the place where King Josiah met his Waterloo, so to speak.  And that's precisely how John uses “Megiddo” here.  That there's no actual Mount Megiddo suggests strongly that John isn't using this location literally.  When we say someone has met their Waterloo, we don't literally mean that they've gone to Waterloo to lose a battle.  Waterloo is a metaphor for defeat and John uses Megiddo in a similar way here.  Rome will meet her enemies and she will fall.  The beast's own wickedness will catch up with him both at home and abroad and he will be toppled from his throne. But in the middle of all this there's that warning.  “Stay awake,” warns Jesus.  Hearkening back to the plague of frogs in Egypt, the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet spew forth demonic spirits imaged as frogs.  These unclean spirits perform signs that deceive the kings of the nations and summon them to the battle.  Jesus warns his people not to be conned by the false prophets and their lying signs.  Pharoah's magicians had once mimicked the Lord's miracles and the prophets of the dragon and the beast will do the same.  God's people must be alert, he warns, that they not fall prey to the enemy's propaganda. And in verses 17-20 the seventh and final bowl is poured out. The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake.  The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.  And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found.  And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe.   The final judgement is poured out into the air, the space between heaven and earth, and the only language John can employ to describe the result is the language of de-creation used by the Old Testament prophets.  Zechariah had once described the fall of Jerusalem using this metaphorical language—the city being split in two by an earthquake.  Now Rome is metaphorically split in three in the chaos of lightning, thunder, and earthquakes.  I think it's very possible this is a reference to the civil war that was about the rattle Rome to its core, but it was a civil war that would topple the beast who had persecuted the saints.  And yet, still, the wicked continue to curse God.  The men who took Nero's place on the throne did not continue the persecution of the saints, but they continued with their blasphemous claims to divinity.  Nevertheless, John says, “God remembered Babylon the great”.  This is our lead-in to Chapters 17 and 18.  The great city will be revealed as the world's whore.  But in that revelation, the faithfulness and the beauty of the Lord's bride will also be revealed. John saw the end of pagan Rome.  Or it might be better to say that he saw the beginning of the end of pagan Rome.  As Caird also rightly points out, Israel's prophets had always used this kind of apocalyptic language “to give theological depth and urgency to this historical crisis which he and his people were facing at the moment.  John, too, had his vision of the End, but because he had learnt his theology at the foot of the Cross, he knew that an end could also be a beginning.”[5] The Lord's judgement would cast down the beast, break his empire, and in time the good news about Jesus, proclaimed by saints and witnesses by the blood of the martyrs would transform the world.  And, Brothers and Sisters, it will continue to do so.  Throughout history the power of the gospel has brought transformation, but it's never as simple as we might like: Okay, the gospel has conquered here, now the Church can go over there or over there to conquer and forget about here.  The Church triumphs there, and then wanes here, only to triumph again here, later.  We in the West are experiencing what it's like to live in a post-Christian world—the waning of the gospel here—to fall out of favour, to experience opposition.  If John were here today he would warn and exhort us as he did the Christians of his own day: “Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”  Don't give up.  Don't succumb to the spirit of the age.  Don't be swayed by the lies of the unclean spirits.  The gospel will triump here again and it will do so through the witness of faithful Christians.  So live in deep community with your church family.  Drink deeply at the well of grace provided by the sacraments.  Steep yourself in the word of God.  Don't be afraid to be different—to be holy—and to proclaim the sinfulness of sin, the gracious mercy of God revealed at the cross, and the lordship of Jesus over all things.  Be shaped by faith-filled hope for Christ has died, Christ is risen, and Christ will come again. Let's pray: Almighty God, we thank you for the exhortation you have given us through John.  You judge the wicked and deliver your people.  Your gospel is powerful and transforms the world.  Strengthen our faith and fill us with hope in these truths, so that we can live courageously for Jesus in the face of hatred and opposition.  Renew us by your Spirit and make us faithful witnesses of the transforming power of your word.  Judge the wicked, we pray, vindicate your people, and set your fallen creation to rights.  Through Jesus we pray, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, new and for ever.  Amen.

Casting Down the Dragon (6) (Audio) David Eells - 6/12/22 The Man-child & Bride Help the “Little Sister” Escape the Dragon   Claire Pienaar - 5/28/22  (David's notes in red)    I dreamed Riaan and I were in a large, walled city that was modern but completely run down. (Our names mean, “Little king” and “Brilliant, representing the Man-child and Bride. I asked the Lord who Riaan and I represent. My finger landed on Psalm 16:6 by faith at random: The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; Yea, I have a goodly heritage.)   There was no electricity, food, open shops or cars running. (This city represents worldwide Babylon who has a body of people who are already ruled by the beast. (In the natural their economy is crashing because it was crooked.) Spiritually, they have no power of the Holy  Spirit, no food of the Word, and they don't get anywhere in their spiritual walk.) All the city's inhabitants were sitting in an arena or  stadium in the middle of the city. It reminded me of the Roman Colosseum. In the “emperor's box”, there was a terrible emperor and his group of leaders. (The emperor represents the elite of the DS.) One of these leaders was a tall, stocky old woman with dark hair. (The dark haired woman in the emperor's box represents the Harlot, who rides the Beast.)  They all had the mark of a red dragon on the backs and front left pockets of their blazers, and their ties. (Representing being dressed up with the works of satan.) There were big banners of this red dragon all over the stadium. (The people are mere spectators [and pawns] to what the rulers of this institution say.).    Riaan and I (Representing the Man-child and Bride) were tasked with helping a young girl care for a newborn baby boy. (This young girl represents those who are coming out of the Babylonish, apostate Churches. She is the “little sister” of the Bride learning to care for her fruit of Christ in her represented by the newborn baby boy. Song 8:8-10  We have a little sister, And she hath no breasts: What shall we do for our sister  In the day when she shall be spoken for?) She had no confidence, authority, or knowledge on how to care for her baby. (The elect of God, who are stuck in apostasy, have not been taught by the false shepherds how to feed their new born spirit man. Psa. 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.)  She was placed in the center of the stadium and we had to help her, but not touch her. (Isa. 52:11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; cleanse yourselves, ye that bear the vessels of Jehovah. And Jer. 15:19 Therefore thus saith Jehovah, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, that thou mayest stand before me; and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: they shall return unto thee, but thou shalt not return unto them.) She was thin and pretty and dressed in a white wedding dress. (She appears to be innocent but ignorant and passing through the apostate church system. The apostate Church considers themselves to be the Bride of Christ but they are not. Jesus is coming again for a spotless and blemishless Bride. God sees His elect as beautiful and in white because He sees the end from the beginning.).  She had a little veil over her face. (Because she is still veiled to the truth of who Jesus is. 2 Co. 3:12-18 Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech, 13 and are not as Moses, who put a veil upon his face, that the children of Israel should not look stedfastly on the end of that which was passing away: 14 but their minds were hardened: for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remaineth, it not being revealed to them that it is done away in Christ.  (Being under the law of man separates from Christ, just like being under the law of God.) 15 But unto this day, whensoever Moses is read, a veil lieth upon their heart. 16 But whensoever it shall turn to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.) The crowd boo'd every time she did something right, so she was very confused at the mixed signals. She struggled to hear us and was really struggling to take care of her newborn boy, but she was making slow progress. (These mixed feelings represents the fight between the flesh and the spirit for the saving of the soul. It also represents the spiritual fight we have to go through to come against everything we've been taught in the Harlot system.).  It became apparent to me that this young girl's mother was the “Harlot" who was in the emperor's box. This mother had treated the young girl so poorly as a child and the young girl kept wanting to blame, shame or deflect all her bad habits and incompetencie's onto the dark haired mother “Harlot" in the emperor's box. (Many of God's elect don't want to take personal responsibility for their actions; instead they want to blame others. A lot of Christians point back to the Catholic Church as a mother of Harlots, not recognizing that they themselves are members of a daughter of the Harlot. As they mature, they can then see their own error.) Riaan and I were in an exclusive suite next to the stadium. Normally, these private suites are up at the top of the bleachers, but our suite was right next to the field on the ground level. (This represents that the Man-Child and Bride company have humility, and empathy with those who are God's elect; chosen to run the race and perform the work of growing their spirit-man). (Our little sister is our little sister, but some would make her their enemy. The hypocrisy is, that they came the same route through the Harlot.)  Riaan kept on telling this young girl to look up, and I kept on telling her to pray. (The real good news of the Gospel teaches us to look up at the sun/Son and get our eyes off of ourselves. Psa. 121:1-3 ...I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: From whence shall my help come? 2 My help cometh from Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.) Eventually she saw her own self as the main problem and she started crying. Then she picked up the baby and loved it. (She recognized and appreciated her spiritual man.) Praise God! Riaan and I were so happy! (True repentance, and realizing the wickedness of the flesh that must be cut down to yield a greater love for the mystery of Christ in you, the hope of glory.)   At this point in the dream, Michael came in to our suite at the bottom of the stadium or arena. (I believe Michael in this dream represents Father, because his name means “who is like God?”).  He asked us what we did with the young girl and we gave him a full account of her as he took notes. We didn't know if it was a “good report” ...but both of us had clear consciences that we'd done what was required of us. Michael was nodding and smiling. (God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.) (Father has put the first fruits in places where we can help those whom He has chosen to come out from among them, and to realize the great mystery, “Christ in you, the hope of glory”).   The emperor decided then to kill us. A siren blast sounded, and everyone in the stadium heard an announcement that was read, which stated that Riaan and I were to be found and killed. I did not hear the siren or the message, but I did see the people taken over immediately by blood lust while they pursued us, and we had to run for our lives. (The dragon in Church and state desire to devour the Man-child and Bride. The more Christ-like a people becomes, the more “anti” or against them the antichrist is. The faction, represented by the terrible emperor, is a part of the Dragon who is trying to devour the Man-child and prevent him from helping the “little sister”. In our own situation, the leader of the faction tried to destroy our website and took down out videos, which were raising up and teaching the “little sister.”)  (They will persecute all those in the Man-Child and Bride companies for helping the “little sister" come out of their systems. They will, with one accord, be united against us.). (Rev. 12:13-17  And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the man child. 14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.) Everywhere we ran, we came up short. We ran into dead-end streets, closed doors, etc. Even though we wanted to escape, I knew in my mind, in the dream, that every other city would be similar to this, but it seems this one we were in was the worst. (Mat 10:23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.)  We ran to the west gate in this warehouse, and as we got there, a small army of men dressed in blue, boy-scout uniforms broke open the metal doors of this part of the city. For a second, I thought “Our liberators are here!” On their turquoise neckerchiefs they had the fish symbol and it said “Baptist State University City”. (Representing the immature, militant arm of apostate Churches.)  They were as well organized, if not better, than the leadership of the dragon city we were in. It dawned on me then that they were worse, because they used the name or symbols of the Lord to control people. They were no better than the leaders of the current dragon city, who were using the symbol of the dragon beast to control the people. (I asked the Lord who the blue and red uniformed people represent, and my finger landed on “You brood of vipers!” from Mat 3:7, (in context 7-10) 7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said unto them, Ye offspring of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of repentance: 9 and think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And even now the axe lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.) I knew they were of the same beast because instead of hugging us, and getting us to safety, they immediately took out clipboards, and iPads, and were very official in their speech. It was like they were making sure they had all the right information from us before they would help us. (A person who is not filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word of God have as much in common with the world as they do with the Church because they are following their carnal reasoning.) These represent the organized apostate Church systems who's doctrine is salvation by good works.) It seemed they still had electricity and food because they looked well, and their uniforms were crisp, freshly pressed and clean. (All those  religious people who follow the mind of the flesh and the works of the flesh have the spiritual mark of the beast in the forehead and in the hand.) The men had white plaster painted on their faces like clowns. (Clowns are not real and they are foolish.) The plaster was so thick it looked like a mask, and I could not see their expressions. (As with all religious organizations, the pupils end up “masking” or mimicking their leaders.)  They were eery and kept looking at their iPad screens to determine if they could harbor us or not. (Looking at their computers for direction is like following the Beast.) Riaan and I were trying to be patient but it was really difficult. It did not appear that we'd be leaving with these men any time soon and, interestingly, the people from the stadium were not pursuing us with fervor any longer. (If the devil can't keep you from Christ, he will try to sidetrack you with religion.)    The scene changed and Riaan and I were now in our home, which I think was still in the dragon city. (We returned to the rest, because we realized that the red-dragons and the blue-boy-scouts could not help us escape.). (2Co 12:9  And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.) … Now we really needed to get to the airport because we were still fleeing the big dragon city. (Come out from among them and be ye separate.) (We must trust in abiding in Christ in the heavenlies and not in the works of men to save us from the beast or dragon kingdom).   The woman of a couple we knew offered to drive us to the airport in her white car. We travelled on the R25 highway, which becomes the P91 highway. (The P91 represents Psalm 91, which is abiding in the secret place of the most high). ... As we were driving with her, the sky became lighter and lighter even though it was during the night. At 11:11 pm according to the car's clock, the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining like it was midday. (111 is the number of the Man-Child birth. Even as we descend into greater darkness here in the natural, it means the Man-Child anointing is closer and almost here!). (When the sun is directly overhead there is no shadow cast. Pro. 4:18 But the path of the righteous is as the dawning light, That shineth more and more unto the perfect day.) None of us were tired. We were energized by seeing the sun/Son shine in the middle of the night. We said, “We'll just stay awake like it's daytime and catch up on sleep when the night comes.”. Then the dream ended.  (John 9:4  We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.) I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random, and I received Psalm 62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my high tower; I shall not be greatly moved.   Here is the whole story of the Dragon and the Woman: (David's notes in red)   Revelation 12:1-17 And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman (The Church whose position, but not manifestation, in Christ is) arrayed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; (The doctrine of the 12 disciples) 2 and she was with child; and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in pain to be delivered. (This is Jesus manifested by Word and Spirit in a corporate Man-child body, just as all the other entities in this text are.) 3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems. (This is the first stage of the beast who is made up of the seed of all 7 world ruling kingdoms and all 10 continental divisions.) 4 And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth (The stars are the seed of Abraham by faith as God said. The tail is "the prophet that speaketh lies”.): and the dragon standeth before the woman that is about to be delivered, that when she is delivered he may devour her child. (This is happening now.) 5 And she was delivered of a son, a man-child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness (The Tribulation), where she hath a place prepared of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (The first 3 1/2 years if the Tribulation.) 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels; 8 And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. (He is being cast down now, He is losing his grip over the nations ruled by the DS Satanists who are being cast down by the Saints through the Alliance and spiritual warfare.)  10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him (The Saints who are exercising authority over satan that Jesus gave them.)  because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman (Church) that brought forth the man-child. 14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle (To overcome the world.), that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (The first 3 1/2 years if the Tribulation they are nourished by the Man-child just as Jesus did.) 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river (This is a river of lies just as we have a river of the water of truth.), that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth.  (The worldly believe the lies)  17 And the dragon waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and hold the testimony of Jesus:   The Dragon Surrounding Mt. Zion Claire Pienaar - 11/26/21 (David's notes in red) I received this vision as I drove home one day as I was approaching "our" mountain, behind which is the town we live in. (Spiritually, the Bride lives in the cleft of the rock, in the secret place of the Most High.) (The town where the Bride lives is Jerusalem or Zion.) In the natural, this mountain that is before the town has a big cross that is naturally engraved into it. We and other believers have noticed it and it provides much comfort to us when we drive back into town from the north or east. (This mountain represents the kingdom of the Church.) In the vision, I saw a dragon made of the clouds. It had two horns, a collar, and its tail was super thick and long. It was draped around the mountain, but I could still see the cross. (I believe the Lord is using us, our town, and the cloud-dragon as a parable.) (The Babylonish dragon has held the kingdom of the Church as a whole in captivity and is now trying to take dominion over Zion the Bride.This is the way it was in the Assyrian assault when they took over Israel but failed to conquer Zion.)  I asked the Lord what it represented and He said, “This is a very oppressive spirit over the town. It is trying to overtake all who live there. Use your sword.” (The Bride must do spiritual warfare to cast down the dominion of the Dragon.) I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random and received Eze. 30:25 with my finger on "Pharoah shall fall down”.  And I will hold up the arms of the king of Babylon; and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am Jehovah, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of Egypt. (Pharoah was called a dragon in scripture too. Eze.  29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great monster (The word monster can be translated as dragon as in the KJV.) that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.) ... I am praying. We are at war, and we are victorious. Incidentally, we had praise songs playing all the way home, so we had already "sent the praisers out", as the children and I belted out the songs joyfully! (Praising the Lord for the victory already won by Jesus Christ will cast down the Dragon through our faith. 2 Ch 20:20-25 ... Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: believe in Jehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.  21 And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed them that should sing unto Jehovah, and give praise in holy array, as they went out before the army, and say, Give thanks unto Jehovah; for his lovingkindness endureth for ever. 22 And when they began to sing and to praise, Jehovah set liers-in-wait against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, that were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.  (God will faction the faction)   24 And when Judah came to the watch-tower of the wilderness, they looked upon the multitude; and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and there were none that escaped. 25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches and dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in taking the spoil, it was so much.)    Slaying Our Little Dragon Beasts Fio Galchenko - 6/5/2022 (David's notes in red)   My dream started with a 'crocodile like' body that my dad (Representing the Father) was teaching me how to control. (This represents our portion of the dragon that has been given us to conquer and that it is our flesh. The flesh is the enemy of God.) He showed me how to grab the mouth so it does not bite me and how to avoid its teeth. (We have to control the mouth or it will come back to bite us.) This crocodile like body then became a dragon that was human like. It was not an adult yet as the wings were not fully developed and the body was still covered with brown fuzz. (The dragon of Rev 12 is the body of all lost mankind.  The flesh is also lost.) We knew that this dragon was going to get dangerous if we let it live longer and grow bigger.  We needed to destroy him while he was still young. (Yes the flesh fights against us and wants to devour us.  We must put it to death daily so he doesn't grow to overcome us.) I would hold him by the back of the neck and his horns would poke and scratch at my hand as he twisted and tried to get free. (The flesh wants freedom but if it gets it, it grows out of control.) I told a nearby person to bring me my shotgun and he brought it but never loaded it.  I sent him back to get ammo while I wrestled with this dragon/human. (The shot is the words of God. It can't be killed without the promises represented by the ammo.) The dragon was upset that my two sons, Fio and Max, did not like him and that they were afraid or uneasy around him. (Our fruit of Christ; represented by the sons is our spiritual man and is at enmity with the flesh and just wants it gone. Gal. 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would.) At this point the dream changed and the dragon was gone but some people brought to me a container filled with the dragon's blood. Then I woke up. (The death of our portion of the dragon frees the spiritual man. The blood of the flesh is full of the Adamic nature of sin that Jesus replaced with His blood.)   The Dragon's Witchcraft is Defeated Chuc Osegueda - 6/3/2022 (David's notes in red) (Chuc, means "to throw something out or away" representing the righteous who war with the swamp and drain it.). I dreamt that I was driving down an empty and deserted highway in a dune buggy. (The Highway of Holiness has been deserted by the majority of Christianity. Only the First fruits are currently traveling it. A dune buggy is mobile in sand, which is God's identification for the seed of Abraham, the Christians.) I then saw an old woman with long grey hair. (As we will see, this is a factious witch that was recently exposed and left UBM.)   She was throwing some strange and unique looking ninja stars. (Ninja stars are one of the ninja's primary defensive weapons used as delaying tactic, although this woman was using them to kill and cause harm). (The factious people are throwing their witchcraft curses at the righteous and their slander is to bring anyone who fails the test of love and truth to spiritual death with them.) This old woman was throwing these stars for practice in an area that I would describe as a mini golf course, but for ninja star throwing practice. There was a little girl who was fetching the stars for the woman after she would throw them. (This represents those immature in obedience and faith who have been among us who ended up being accomplices before they left. Thank God this process of cleansing out the tares is coming to an end.)  As I crept past them, I realized this woman was a factious witch who left UBM.  (Her name represents "accusing others of wrong doing".  The Devil is the accuser of the brethren and he has lots of helpers. She is just a symbol of the witchcraft that is in all of the faction.)  I crept in between them, and what looked like a tennis ball shooter but was actually a ninja star shooter.   I drove past her and kept going down the empty highways, and I noticed a stray ninja star on the ground. The star had sharp blade edges like a normal ninja star, but was shaped like a military vehicle with blades surrounding it. (They are very militant like the Faciast Nazi's in church and state who try to force their will, hatred, slander, and corruption on others. This is a test to see who will chose faithfulness to the Word, Jesus.)   I grabbed the ninja star and continued to drive, and then noticed that the factious witch was behind me facing me. I turned around in the vehicle to face her, as the dune buggy was still rolling down the highway.  The witch was aware that I picked up her stray weapon (the ninja star)  and she then whipped a ninja star at me with precise aim. (We had dreams where the factions own weapons or curses were being thrown back at them by the angels who are our ministering spirits. The Lord said, “I will curse them that curse thee”. We cannot send our own curses but every trap they lay they must fall into it as scriptures say.  i.e. they must reap what THEY sow.)  I tried to dodge this star, but it did hit me on my right shoulder, however I was unaffected. (As we mature in warfare "we are not ignorant of satan's devices” and become immune to them through exercising repentance and faith in the Word. Jesus gave us "all authority" over their curses to “Bind” them. As the Lord showed us, our guardian angels will throw their weapons and traps back on them.)  I seemingly absorbed the star and it did not harm me. I whipped (her own) ninja star back at her and it hit her (this is all happening as the dune buggy is still rolling down the highway and I am turned around to face her). (Atta boy Chuc. :o) She then whipped another star at me with precision, but I don't remember if it hit me. By this point, it didn't matter because I was not hurt by her attacks, although she appeared very skillful at what she was doing. I whipped another star at her and hit her in the center of her chest (heart) or the center of her forehead, but I cannot really recall exactly which. I believe she was hit in the chest area (heart). (Both the heart of evil and mind of flesh are symbolized here.) The witch and I were now in a more confrontational position which is on a sidewalk curved to the right and I was out of the vehicle.  (Witchcraft cannot prosper against us when we are in the “right". Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.)   Then l saw a large video screen display on the outer edge of the bend (like what you see in Times Square NYC).  I punched the witch in the face in retaliation against her assaults on me (which seemed strange for me to do because I wouldn't punch a woman, let alone an old one in real life.) (To deface someone is to change peoples view of them.  Declass of their sins is doing just this by revealing their sins to the world.  This is happening in the world with the factious DS just as it is happening in the Church with our own faction.)  The little girl was still with her, but she had aged a bit in that time and she was now older, but still a young girl. (Perhaps some of the accomplices will mature a bit as they see the loss of the faction. We have dreams where this happened.) I waved my right hand in front of the witch, and she became just a video image on the screen, as if she was sent there and was now stuck and could no longer cause anyone harm. ("That passeth away" came to me.  Isa 29:5  But the multitude of thy foes shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be in an instant suddenly. And Jer 13:24  Therefore will I scatter them, as the stubble that passeth away, by the wind of the wilderness.  And  Hos 13:3  Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the dew that passeth early away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the threshing-floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney. Words just received by faith at random: Psa 94:1-11  O Jehovah, thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.  2  Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: Render to the proud their desert.  3  Jehovah, how long shall the wicked, How long shall the wicked triumph?  4  They prate, they speak arrogantly: All the workers of iniquity boast themselves.  5  They break in pieces thy people, O Jehovah, And afflict thy heritage.  6  They slay the widow and the sojourner, And murder the fatherless.  7  And they say, Jehovah will not see, Neither will the God of Jacob consider.  8  Consider, ye brutish among the people; And ye fools, when will ye be wise?  9  He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see?  10  He that chastiseth the nations, shall not he correct, Even he that teacheth man knowledge?  11  Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man, That they are vanity. Psa 118:12-17  They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off.  13  Thou didst thrust sore at me that I might fall; But Jehovah helped me.  14  Jehovah is my strength and song; And he is become my salvation.  15  The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.  16  The right hand of Jehovah is exalted: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.  17  I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of Jehovah. I asked the Lord for a Word about the faction and put my finger down in the middle of Psa 109, which is a curse not from us but from God on the factious. Psa 109:1-31  A Psalm of David. Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;  2  For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me: They have spoken unto me with a lying tongue.  3  They have compassed me about also with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause.  4  For my love they are my adversaries: But I give myself unto prayer.  5  And they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love.  6  Set thou a wicked man over him; And let an adversary stand at his right hand.   7  When he is judged, let him come forth guilty; And let his prayer be turned into sin.  8  Let his days be few; And let another take his office. (They are Judas')   9  Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow.  10  Let his children be vagabonds, and beg; And let them seek their bread out of their desolate places.  11  Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; And let strangers make spoil of his labor. (They use their position while they are with you to steal from you with deception for they have no faith God will help them.)  12  Let there be none to extend kindness unto him; Neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children.  13  Let his posterity be cut off; In the generation following let their name be blotted out.  14  Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah; And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.  15  Let them be before Jehovah continually, That he may cut off the memory of them from the earth;   16  Because he remembered not to show kindness, But persecuted the poor and needy man, And the broken in heart, to slay them.  17  Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him; And he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him.  18  He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment, And it came into his inward parts like water, And like oil into his bones.  19  Let it be unto him as the raiment wherewith he covereth himself, And for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually.   20  This is the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah, And of them that speak evil against my soul.  21  But deal thou with me, O Jehovah the Lord, for thy name's sake: Because thy lovingkindness is good, deliver thou me;  22  For I am poor and needy, And my heart is wounded within me.  23  I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.  24  My knees are weak through fasting; And my flesh faileth of fatness.   25  I am become also a reproach unto them: When they see me, they shake their head.  26  Help me, O Jehovah my God; Oh save me according to thy lovingkindness:  27  That they may know that this is thy hand; That thou, Jehovah, hast done it. (Their leaders tell them that their curse is our fault but “the curse that is causeless alighteth not”.) 28  Let them curse, but bless thou: When they arise, they shall be put to shame, But thy servant shall rejoice.   29  Let mine adversaries be clothed with dishonor, And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.  30  I will give great thanks unto Jehovah with my mouth; Yea, I will praise him among the multitude.  31  For he will stand at the right hand of the needy, To save him from them that judge his soul. (Luk 6:37 And judge not, and ye shall not be judged: and condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: release, and ye shall be released.)   Worldwide Shakings/Satan Cast to Earth/144 Thousand Revealed Outpouring Gates YouTube - 6/4/22 (David's notes in red)   The Lord gave me two single words. He said, “World - Shaking.” I don't have a time-frame on this; I don't know when, but what I can  say is: This IS coming… I saw these two words and then I was taken in a vision and I'm going to try to describe the best way I can. It was like an epic movie, but a thousand times more intense.  I saw the whole of planet earth from space and it was shaking. At first It wasn't a violent shaking, but… it was just rumbling really hard. …and there were cracks happening throughout the world, dispersed in diagonal patterns, horizontal patterns, and vertical patterns. And as I was watching, I was like, “How does anybody survive this?” It became so violent. ... This was a worldwide earthquake. (Even though He's interpreting many of the events in the vision literally, I believe this worldwide shaking will be a time of spiritual shakings for the elect of God. We know from scriptures that there will be many violent earthquakes when Jesus returns in His Man-child reformers.) The cracks were going through the oceans and land. (the Bible says that oceans or seas represent, peoples, tribes, nations and tongues.) It did not matter. It was just obliterating everything. The whole earth was in an earthquake. ... (It will literally be by the grace of God that people survive this thing because the earth shook so hard that the cracks were like miles wide, it seemed like.) (The DS has seismic weapons and according to dreams they will use them. Insiders in the war against DS have warned to expect the largest earthquakes we have ever seen. We have shown that their fracking has a pattern, sometimes in a straight line across the country for the purpose of steering their earthquakes. Also, there will be a spiritual shaking for the elect people of God leading to a great revival.) From my vantage point from outer space, I thought, “That kind of crack would cave in parts of oceans. Oceans would just start to dive into these cracks." ... So then, as I'm looking directly at planet earth, out of my right periphery, I'm watching Planet X come, and it was so big. This planet was massive, and it was pitch-black ... but it had these red ...cracks in it and it seemed like it wasn't solid, but it was. (It is dark because the face towards us would be blocking the Sun rather than reflecting it.  Planet X was called by the Egyptians the destroyer and sometimes it was called the dragon because of its appearance with a tail. It appears to have brought the Passover and Red Sea judgments. The X means, “10” which is the number of the Law and judgment. We know from History that this is a literal planet and that God will use it for judgments described in scripture.) The atmosphere of this planet was so thick with black darkness as it came past the earth... so very quickly; in a moment. …There was this big transfer of black mist from the planet to the Earth. But it was really just demons… transferring to the earth really quickly. (Demons don't need a planet to live on for they are spirits but they could use this occasion of darkness to spread their alien deception and they could be cast down to the earth here too. Representing satan cast to the earth.) Then... the scene changed and these demons were in cities and they were flying. They appeared as bat... demons. They had weapons and spears. ... As these demons were ... attacking people, I saw these saints ...flying in the air behind them and they were hovering high above where these demons were attacking the people. (This represents the Saints, meaning sanctified ones, are warring in heavenly places against demon forces. The First fruits will be anointed with power from on High to war against satan and his demons.  Rev. 12:7-12 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels; 8 And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. … 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. 12 Therefore  rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.) The saints were like super heroes without the cape. … (This reminds me of a dream Garrett Crawford had where once the anointing was poured out on the saints, they looked like superheroes…)   The Anointing of the First-Fruits Garrett Crawford - 07/24/2008 (David's notes in red) I would like to share a dream I was given within days/weeks of finding UBM in the fall of 2006. I was standing in a plain (wilderness) all by myself. I looked off into the distance and I could see someone or something coming toward me. As it got closer I could make it out as a cloud. Within seconds it was right beside me and on this cloud sat a messenger from God. He had an invitation for me; it was in the form of a large golden telegram that was reminiscent of the golden tickets in the Willy Wonka movie. (A ticket to visit a wondrous land.) He said this was an invitation to attend a revival that was taking place in the mountains of the Yukon. (Meaning great river, i.e. of the waters of life.)   As soon as I took the golden invitation I found myself high above the Earth, flying over North America to the far left corner of the continent. This only took a matter of seconds as I flew thousands of miles across the nation and found myself at the foot of a snowy white mountain. I began to walk up this mountain and as I walked I looked down and saw that I had no shoes on! (We are to climb the kingdom of God, which in Dan.2:44 is a mountain. God demands we take off our shoes when we are on holy ground so that we are not separated from His holiness.)  I could not believe it! I had no shoes, walking in the snow but my feet were not cold at all so I kept walking up the mountain. After a long trek up, I made it to a stream and began to walk through the stream that flowed from the top of the mountain. (Walking in the rivers of the waters of life, the Word of God, that cleanses our walk.) There were large square stones that were placed in the middle of the stream for me to walk on. These stones were crafted and had a decorative border on them. (The foundations laid by the Apostles and Prophets.) They were massive in size -- must have weighed tons for just one of them. I continued to walk on these stones until I made it to the beginning of the stream in a small clearing at the top of the mountain. (The source of the "river of the water of life" is "the throne of God and the Lamb", as Rev.22:1 says.) On top of the mountain I saw a group of people who were standing on the bank of the stream. They were all lined up in a straight line and something very, very supernatural was happening to them. (These are the first-fruits to be anointed with the latter rain at the beginning of the tribulation. (Rev.14:1) And I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty and four thousand (The Man-child Body), having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. {4} These are they that were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These [are] they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, [to be] the firstfruits unto God and unto the Lamb.)  Something was being poured on them from the heavens. (The coming of the Lord in His people through the Latter Rain. Hos.6:3 ... He will come unto us as the rain, as the latter rain that watereth the earth.) It was like water that glittered and shown brightly. It was so glorious. It seemed that the water was actually liquid glory. (2 Cor.3:18) But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.)  As I watched, each one of these people receiving this water was transformed into a more powerful being receiving his own special gift. I even saw one grow what seemed like angel-type wings. (Ability to move supernaturally by translation. They will be able to pass these gifts on to disciples, as Jesus did. Phillip translated.) I know this sounds crazy but they resembled superheroes. (More like "Christ in you the hope of glory".) Then I fell on my face and starting praising God. Next I heard one call out to the rest, "The world hates us now! They hate us! “ (Jn.15:18) If the world hateth you, ye know that it hath hated me before [it hated] you.   He seemed very troubled by this. I got this feeling that this hatred came on so quick that he could not understand why it was happening. That is when I was given the understanding that these people were to be sent back out into the world with their power and gifts to overcome the world. (Just as their Master, who was a type of them, did.) That is when I became bold and full of faith and said back to him in complete confidence, "Why do you question this? Did not the Master tell us this was supposed to happen? The world is supposed to hate us". (This is the beginning of the great revival at the beginning of the tribulation.) End of dream. Back to the Outpouring Gates vision: And then... I saw an insane overtaking. … The demons did not see the saints coming. They ... were flying ...in groups. It was like a wave ...overtaking all these demonic powers. They were clearing them out. And as I was watching this, I heard the Lord say, “Clearing out the mess.” And then the Lord began to speak to me, after coming out of the vision... and He said, “Salvation to the people will take place.” He said, “I will be their Savior again. I will reveal My 144, 000 to the world. (The 144,000 in Rev 14 are the Man-child body in Rev 12.)  They will be ready, purposed, and trained.” He said, “ 'Justice League' is their true purpose. My justice will flow through them. Healings will happen. Powers never seen before will be taking place.”  Then God took me into another vision after He said this (This is a spiritual parable) …and I saw this little Caucasian girl, in regular clothing, with blonde hair who was a part of the 144,000, and with her itty bitty little finger, she was swirling this massive thunderstorm; rotating it. …It looked like a thunderstorm, but it was also a tornado... at the same time. And as she was doing this, ... the clouds that started swirling at her finger, went up to the sky. (We must rightly divide the Word. This is spiritual not physical. The little blonde girl represents a small body of people. A body of people are often symbolized as feminine in scripture like the body of the Church and Bride and the Harlot, even though many of these people are male in the natural. So a body of physical men can be represented spiritually as female to demonstrate good principles. Female here represents they are able to receive the seed of the husband in fertile ground as in the parable of the sower who bore fruit 30, 60, 100 fold. Females bear fruit. Hair is a sign of submission in 1 Co 11.  Blond hair represents submitted to the sun/Son, which is blonde. He also is our husband because we only receive His seed, which the parable of the sower says is His Word. The harlot received the seed which was not that of our husband but the world, even though many of them are physically men. This Caucasian, representing white or pure, girl represents spiritually a corporate body of the First fruits Man-child body of 144,000 even though literally some of these are physically black men. The thunderstorm represents the power and authority that will come with the former and latter rain anointing on the Man-child. They are physically a MAN-child because only men are permitted to "teach or take authority over the man" in New Testament scripture. Jesus only chose men to take a position like this in the 12 and the 70 and as Bishops or overseers in the rest of the NT scriptures. Man-childs have been identified all through the scriptures as men, Moses, David, Joseph, Daniel, Ezekiel, Jesus, etc, etc. We must never add to or take from the precedent of scripture or we are brought under the last curse in the Bible.) And …there was a demon way over to the right who did not notice what was going on. She then sent the thunderstorm with her finger, and the demon looked at it and was in shock and was overtaken by this thunderstorm and was sent flying like hundreds of miles away... When I saw this, I was like, “Whoa! This is a little girl! She's a part of the 144,000, that's cool.”… (In this parable she represents all of the Man-child. The Bride, who were submitted to the Man-child Jesus, were spiritually identified by John the Baptist as Jesus' first disciples who were all men physically. He said, “He that hath the Bride is the bridegroom.") Then the Lord took me out of that vision and that was the end of it and the Lord said this, “Seek Me for more of this revealed. (Which we have done)  I will do great, awesome acts of My glory to showcase I Am the I Am.” He said, “Have faith and know I Am Who I Am and have not given Satan the control. Leave the world, stick with Me. I have plans not one has thought of.” And that was the end of that word...      Select LanguageAfrikaansAlbanianAmharicArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBengaliBosnianBulgarianCatalanCebuanoChichewaChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CorsicanCroatianCzechDanishDutchEsperantoEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchFrisianGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekGujaratiHaitian CreoleHausaHawaiianHebrewHindiHmongHungarianIcelandicIgboIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseJavaneseKannadaKazakhKhmerKinyarwandaKoreanKurdish (Kurmanji)KyrgyzLaoLatinLatvianLithuanianLuxembourgishMacedonianMalagasyMalayMalayalamMalteseMaoriMarathiMongolianMyanmar (Burmese)NepaliNorwegianOdia (Oriya)PashtoPersianPolishPortuguesePunjabiRomanianRussianSamoanScots GaelicSerbianSesothoShonaSindhiSinhalaSlovakSlovenianSomaliSpanishSundaneseSwahiliSwedishTajikTamilTatarTeluguThaiTurkishTurkmenUkrainianUrduUyghurUzbekVietnameseWelshXhosaYiddishYorubaZulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version
