Testimonies of the Witnesses
I have had the privilege of talking with most of you individually this afternoon and it has been a real blessing hearing how you experienced the Anointing on Aviv 9. I am going ask as many of you who are willing to write an account of your experience of that evening with a view to sharing with the Body of Messiah what happened here after we break up to go our several ways. Yahweh brought us together as 12 testators - 6 here in MLT and 6 abroad in Kenya, Germany, Ireland, and South Africa - with a 13th 'extra' witness here at the anointing but not at the footwashing in the session before. That is because, I believe, 13 is a pointer to the coming Sukkot (Tabernacles) Anointing, of which we have been permitted to experience the first three of seven 'installments', as it were; and I say that because at that time, the cohen would offer a total of 13 bullocks which you can read about later in the teaching, The 13 Bulls: Mystery of Tabernacles Sacrifice.
The Experience of the Anointing
In listening to your descriptions of the Anointing, and how it impacted you personally, I am basically getting the same message - it was 'heavy' (to quote Brother Ljungstrand), not in the negative sense, but positively in the sence that it was 'weighty', 'serious' and 'important'. There was also this tremendous shalom (peace) which was experienced at a new depth that none of us have ever known before - far, far more qadosh (holy, sacred) then we have ever experienced previously, there being that sense of a very real and great presence of Elohim (God). And wonderful though it was, I have had the very real sense that this was just a 'deposit' of something far greater yet to come, an assurance that Yahweh is here tangibly and will remain with us, and will manifest in the same way whenever we devote ourselves to prayer in the Sanctuary as we have done here. You can, as I compile them, read back over the accounts of what happened here after this is over and hopefully be able to spiritually reconnect.
Your Many and Varied Journeys
It has also been an especial blessing to me to hear how Yahweh led you to this work, how He called you, and to learn something of your spiritual journeys. We have been on the mountaintop, in the Temple of Yahweh, and we must breifly return to the valley to engage in preparations and the affairs of ordinary life for a short while before we reassemble for our Late Pesach (Passover) devotions. It has admittedly been a little strange not actually eating the Passover Seder at this time or engaging with the rest of you who have been but then there has been an overriding need to gather for what Yahweh has done through us these last 16 days. Parallel with all of is is the daily news which is filled with more and more woe as the world seems to be spiralling into chaos. But all the while Yahweh is at work, intersecting, restraining, preventing or redirecting every event or planned event to ensure that everything conforms to His perfect will. This is true of individuals as it is on the global level.
Towards the Jericho March and Ark
We are amazed at just how busy we are as we try to grasp, as best we can, all the clocks, countdowns and timetables operating simultaneously. Today another countdown began, the countdown of 7 sabbaths and 50 days leading to Shavu'ot (Weeks, 'Pentecost'). There are only 14 days left in the 72 day count so we will have much to do to get everything shipshape-and-bristol-fashion, as we say in England, on time. This is the 'Van Staden Fortnight (Two Weeks)', as I like to call it (since brother François discovered it), which simultaneously initiates the seven-day Jericho March in the first of those weeks. As soon as that is over, and we are half way through the Van Staden Count, there are three days left to get on the 'ark' The Van Staden Count ends at Late Pesach (Passover) and one month and a day from today, after the 4th Sabbath of the Omer Count has come, on the Third Day of Late Chag haMatzah (Unleavened Bread), on the 17th day of the Second Month, when the doors of that Ark shut tight and will remain closed until the allotted time is over. Though we have a few other prophetic markets, these are the main ones concerning the month that lies ahead.
Preparing for the Master's Supper and Interceeding for Members
After the Pesach (Passover) Meal there will be the Master's Supper for those who have entered baptismal and Shavu'ot (Weeks) Covenants. Time will fly, brethren and sisters, so remain in fervent prayer for the qodeshim (saints, set-apart ones) and for the world as the hourglasses empty, each in their appointed sequence and each at their appointed time, and pray especially for those who are yet journeying here, that Yahweh would open the way for them so that they be delivered safely and on time. I speak of both those called to this work who have never come, those who have been here but departed from us, and those who have long been a part of this work, who have been called here, but have been prevented. We must also pray for our families and especially for those who choose to remain outside the ark, that our prayers might be heard and grace extended to them.
Remember the B'rit Pala' and the Second Exodus
I look forwartd to seeing you all, and others (Yah willing), here at the Late Pesach (Passover). We have invoked, amongst other things, the B'rit Pala' or Covenant of Miracles (Wonders) for I believe we shall have very real need of them, and in increasing numbers as well as on an increasing scale, as events unfold. The expectation of all of us ought to be as the children of Israel in the First Exodus, for the Second Exodus has truly begun and we are in the second year of it, and the third day. This is another cycle we need to be monitoring.
The Mountain of the End-Time Kingdom is Rising
So I am grateful for our prayer warriors, intercessors, evangelists, pastors, prophets, seers, revelators and bible scholars who unitedly have come together by covenant and by sacrifice to be a part of this great work. This is and has been, literally, the Great 2015 Dedication in more ways than one, for it is the fulfillment also of a prophetic dream received by one of the earliest members, who has since fallen away but for whose return we must ever pray for, who saw this work even before he knew of us. Indeed, I was led powerfully by the Ruach (Spirit) to go to him through a strong storm and let nothing hinder me until I had spoken with him. I have shared his story with some of you already, some of you know of it from before, for he saw a mighty mountain come out of heaven and crash into the sea. And when it had settled, only the smallest part - the peak - was visible. But that peak shall rise and it shall excite awe and fear for it will not be overcomable though the Enemy send everything he has against it. No technology, no occult power, nothing will overcome it. It is the pure and undefiled Kingdom of Elohim (God), the Remnant, the General Assembly and Fellowship of the Firstborn, the remnant of the 144,000 of the 12 Tribes of Messianic Israel who are being sent out into all the earth to bear mighty witness of the Messiah, with authentic signs following, not the counterfeits of fallen Christendom. For that witness, please see, The Mountains Made Visible.
The Madeira Prophecy and the 12 Day Count
And I have been reminded, yet again, by Yahweh that we should keep our eyes simultaneously trained on the Atlantic islands of Madeira for only a few days ago I was again led to a place where I found another copy of a book about them that has now joined a swelling collection of many, books not sought out, but which keep on falling, as it were, into my lap. At the time the first Madeira Prophecy was given, on 4 October 2010, another countdown began, for I was commanded to count 12 days, for 'October' would in some sense be 'the end'. I quote to you from that original article which will make your jaw drop when you consider the witnesses who have been assembled for this Dedeication:
The Assembling of the Twelve
"..I heard Him speak very clearly again, saying: TWELVE DAYS. As He did so, I became aware that somehow each of these days represented 12 persons, and that each of these persons would somehow be contacted by Yahweh."
These are the bikkurim or firstfruits of this work. And some of you have literally come to this work within the last 6 months to 18 months. So, unexpectedly, twelve primary witnesses have been assembled and they seem to be linked somehow, also, to the Madeira Islands and there is some sort of rendez-vous that we have on 16 October, if I am understanding another aspect of this count correctly. Incidentally, 16 October 2010 was Day #214 in the Creation Calendar which in gematria adds up to the number 7 or number of completion. We will see how all of this unfolds in the times ahead.
The White Horse Has Arisen
So here we are, brethren and sisters, engaged in a high adventure every bit as exciting and challening as anything Moses or Joshua of Hezekiah experienced. Trust and obey, invoke the promises always, remain very humble, contrite and broken so that individually and together we can become the instrument of Yahweh in His purposes. Remember the burning horse and the incident that that led to. THE WHITE HORSE HAS ARISEN!
Guard the Deposit Received
Guard closely the deposit that has been given us which is not only the deposit of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) but even more importantly, in some respects - because it is what the Ruach (Spirit) inhabits, the divine tavnith (pattern):
"What you heard from me, keep as the tavnith (pattern, Gk. hupotuposis, 'underlying type') of sound teaching, with emunah (faith) and ahavah (love) in Messiah Yah'shua (Christ Jesus). Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you-guard it with the help of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) who lives in us" (2 Tim.1:13-14, NIV).
Be blessed, trust Yahweh, and please stay in regular contact! And may the Name of Yah'shua (Jesus) our Messiah be praised for ever and ever. Amen.
