Shabbat shalom kol beit Yisra'el!
"For whatever is born of Elohim (God) overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world -- our emunah (faith). Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Yah'shua (Jesus) is the Son of Elohim (God)?" (1 John 5:4-5, NKJV).
Today, along with Rosh Chodesh, is the day that Yahweh promises to speak through the prophets on behalf of the people seeking guidance from Him and is one of the purposes the Sabbath is holy or set-apart. We have had some remarkable experiences with Yahweh's promises about these set-apart times over the years, and especially since we repented of Satyrday Error and finally adopted the Creation Calendar.
The record of prophecy being fulfilled has been amazing, the latest big one being the Fukuskima Death Cloud - that disaster, as we know, is far from over and worse may yet be to come as the authorities do nothing about burying the stricken plants as they did in Chernobyl. It's probably the greatest single danger to the planet right now.
Today I was reviewing in particular how Yahweh has guided and protected me and my family over the years, especially when it has come to malevolent persons out to destroy us. There were always warnings in advance and visionary prophecies of the outcome that were fulfilled. For that I am eternally grateful. As believers we are to expect opposition of all kinds and with each attempt by the enemy to destroy, and as Yahweh's hand is manifested each time, so our emunah (faith) grows and we get stronger. Though the enemy wins the occasional battle - usually, though not always, because of our carelessness - he never wins the war.
When he is not in opposition then there are grounds for concern because then it means we are no bother to him. True, there are divinely-ordained times of rest and shalom to allow rejuvenation, but aside from these brief trips to 'Beulaland', we are mostly engaged in combat of one sort or another. The enemy never relents.
Soldiers in combat know what I mean. They have to be combat-ready most of the time. Yahweh's Army is no different - we are aware too.
Thirteen months ago I warned people to get kitted up for battle - some of you may recall the Crossed Swords and Crescent series of visions. They were global in nature, and looking back at the world today, it is not hard to see what they meant. But we must not forget that all prophecy is multi-layered, with application on different levels from the global to the personal.
Today has been no exception. This afternoon Yahweh showed me a vision, part of which I am going to share with you today:
For those with the Ruach (Spirit) I leave the further interpretation to you - for those who don't, it will remain sealed. But I shall speak more of this later when the actions and events it portrays are concluded.
I saw a vision of a proud, ravenous and confident lion charging at full speed and with all its might on open ground. It went within a few feet right past me without seeing me, its eyes fixed on some distant object to my right. But there were two things strange about it. First, it looked as though it were made in some mould, like plastic, for though the limbs had motion, there was something artificial about them - something else was being concealed beneath or within. It reminded me of one of those lego figures though here it seemed alive. Second, the legs - or at least the two front legs (though it could have been all four) were wearing plaster castes such as are worn over broken limbs, which were integral with the outer body. Without this outer 'lion shell', I doubt the person within would even have been able to walk. A demonic power was both sustaining and driving the person inside.
My testimony is that Yahweh is in control of all your troubles and that provided you surrender your will to His, He will see you through to victory. I have absolutete confidence in Him in this regard. I pray that your Sabbath is blessed and I look forward to seeing you back at again at Rosh Chodesh in two days' time for another Davar (Word), Yah willing.
