Esther And The Latter Rain, pt. 3 of 3
January 15th 2018 - More light is being shined on Bride truth right now than at any time in its twenty-three-year history. This light is affording us to see not only what will not work, but hopefully to now see the one thing that will work towards the quest of the latter rain and the return of Immanuel. You will understand this as you read here.
Just as the last “Gary Report” was being prepared for posting, I was sitting in the office of a man and we were discussing the feasts and the Law. I mentioned the first two feasts of Passover and Pentecost, and that they were relevant to the unleavened Passover barley Remnant, and the leavened two thousand years of the Pentecost Body of Christ, or Christianity. The latter are the two loaves of leavened wheat bread that were waved before God but could not ascend to Him as a burnt offering. Thus they all died! Then when I mentioned the third and final feast of Tabernacles, the gentleman added that this was relevant to the nations. And to this I most certainly agreed. This latter feast is the grape harvest, where the grapes are treaded out.
I then noted to him that since these three feasts are highly prophetic of works that were to be fulfilled, then the feast that was added later, Purim, must therefore be prophetic of a specific work as well that will likewise be fulfilled. He found this quite interesting and admitted that he had never thought about it before. And the fact is, until of late I too had not seen the huge relevance of this. And Purim, along with its fulfillment, are what we will be examining in this report—a matter which is MOST important and timely! I do believe and hope that in the twenty-three years of knowing Bride, the Father has kept this truth regarding Purim hidden until now when it is hopefully about to be fulfilled.
But before I address this, we need to examine the history of my search for the latter rain, going back to June of 1994. On June 11 and 18 and thereafter, Yahweh began to sovereignly teach me regarding the Bride. I knew that the first Remnant received the former rain on the day of Pentecost; and I knew as well that we HAD TO have the latter rain today so as to establish the concluding and fulfilling second Remnant. My assumption at that time was that if the former rain came on Pentecost, then Pentecost would bring the latter rain as well. But I was wrong. In 2003 we even held all things in common from Passover to Pentecost in hopes that this would bring us the needed results; but that too did not give us what we need. The problem with Pentecost is that it testifies of the 2,000 years of the leavened church by virtue of the two loaves of leavened bread. So that would never work, and I began looking elsewhere.
In another possibility, I knew that as Peter declared in Acts 11:15, the Holy Spirit fell upon the Gentiles gathered in Cornelius’s house “just as He did upon us [them] at the beginning.” And, this event that could well have been prophetic of the latter rain was not date specific, other than what could be seen in the meaning of the name “Cornelius.” It means “trumpet.” Trumpets is the first day of the month in which Tabernacles takes place. So, one wonders if the latter rain could be tied to Tabernacles.
With this and other matters in mind, in 2005 I began to see the likelihood that a Pentecost needed to be added to Tabernacles. Passover/Pentecost is a 1—7—1 pattern, or the day of Passover, followed by the seven days of Unleavened Bread, and forty-nine days later is Pentecost. But Tabernacles is a mere 7—1 pattern, or seven days of Tabernacles, followed by the great eighth day. You can read here if you want to know more about this, but there was evidence that a Pentecost had to be added to Tabernacles, or now a 7—1—1. So in December, 2005, we held the first ever Tabernacles Pentecost. Obviously we did not get the much-needed results. Then in 2015 in the writing Tabernacles Pentecost Revisited, in reexamining this I saw the necessity to move the Pentecost to before Tabernacles so that it was an equal 1—7—1 pattern. But, that pattern and hope still did not produce the essential latter rain. And the other thing I did not factor in was that Tabernacles belongs to the nations, and thus excludes either the Bride or the Body. And Trumpets would have to be associated with Tabernacles, as well as Cornelius, the nations.
So, was I to quit? We know what the former rain was. And we know there MUST be a latter rain as well. The former rain came on a feast day, and one must conclude that the latter rain will come on a feast as well. But, how and when? This question is something I have been searching for an answer to for twenty-three years! We have to have the latter rain! Without it there is no second Remnant, and Messiah will not be birthed back to this earth! Thereupon, there will be no preceding demonstration of power that shakes the world and the church! In fact, there will be no second olive tree (Zechariah 4), no second son of fresh oil, if that oil never comes! The latter rain of the Spirit is ENTIRELY essential! It is so essential that by the grace of Yahweh God I have never given up on obtaining it.
Some could say I have failed. But no, I am gaining understanding regarding the kingdom, and discovering what will and will not work. And also, I show my/our GREAT need for the fulfillment of this kingdom work. And the fact is, it’s not over until it’s over. Back in the early 1980s the Holy Spirit gave me Rees Howells as my example in the flesh, and there is something he said and lived that applies here. On several like occasions he said it looked as though he had failed in not obtaining what he had hoped for. But, he did not count these as failures but as steppingstones to his ultimate success and fulfillment. Amen to this essential truth and practice!
Today, after twenty-three years of waiting and pursuing and, yes, even finding out what will not work, it may well be that the Father has saved the revelation of the true fulfillment for last. In fact, Yahshua said Himself that “the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” I can in fact say that He has saved something for me to see that I have never before even considered. And hopefully He has saved it for this time, and is revealing it only now because it is about to be fulfilled! So if it’s not Pentecost that we need, and it’s not associated with Tabernacles, then what is left? The obscure feast of Purim! The added feast. And you will now see some truly amazing and hopeful testimonies regarding it!
In the last report we saw some amazing things regarding the book of Esther. There are clear and outstanding types there. We see Esther, the Bride, who replaces Vashti Satan who would not come when called. And we see Satan testified in Haman, who seeks to kill Yahweh’s people. Another critical part in this is Mordecai, the Elijah, who councils Esther the Bride so as to save the people of God from Satan Haman. Mordecai is also lifted up in a belated honor that Satan Haman thought was to be for him—being placed upon the King’s horse and a robe the King had worn placed upon him and led through the streets by Haman Satan who heralded, “Thus it shall be done to the man whom the king desires to honor.” Of course with this, it meant Satan Haman’s certain demise.
Prior to all of this, the Esther Bride had gone before the king and upon touching the head of his scepter obtained her request for a wine banquet with him and Satan Haman. But there was not just one banquet, but two—attesting to the first Remnant Bride and the second Remnant Bride. And Satan Haman was no more revealed at the first wine banquet than Satan was revealed at the time of the first Remnant. As in the entirety of the book of Esther, this was a living prophecy, even an outstandingly revealing living parable. Then at the second-Remnant wine banquet, Satan Haman was revealed and was hung on a fifty cubits gallows that he had built for the death of the Mordecai Elijah. This is in fact the gallows whereupon Judas was hung! Satan was early with his Haman judgment, even as Yahshua’s first coming was early. But with Judas having paid the price as the first bird of Leviticus 14, the fulfilling Mordecai will live and in fact take Satan’s place. And the ring that was upon his hand will now be placed upon the hand of the second bird Elijah that ascends alive, and the house which Satan has occupied will be given to the Elijah as well! Satan will reap what he sowed. Upon a gallows he judged the man Judas to death, and he will now reap the same for himself. His time will and has come to a self-perpetuated and in every regard justified end!
Let us look at this further. It is most, most interesting that a Passover Pentecost cannot afford what we need. In fact, it testified to two thousand years of corrupt leavened Christianity. But even so, it is upon a fifty-cubits gallows—Pentecost—that Satan is killed. How can this be? Well, we already see that Judas, who occupied the office of the Elijah as the twelfth apostle, was in fact killed by Satan by a gallows of hanging himself. Hereupon he paid the price of being the first bird so that the second bird, the Elijah, does not have to die. The reality is that what Satan did then insured his failure later. And it is most interesting that immediately before Pentecost, the apostles falsely cast lots for a replacement for the Elijah. Do you know what “Purim” means? It means “lots.” When the apostles cast lots for a replacement for Judas, it has meant the death of kingdom man ever since! And this is what Purim is all about—stopping the consequence of Haman casting lots. In Esther 9:24 we read: “For Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the adversary of all the Jews, had schemed against the Jews to destroy them and had cast Pur, that is the lot, to disturb them and destroy them.” That lot meant the destruction of the Jews on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month of Adar. And with the apostles casting lots, there has been the same consequence ever since, starting with Stephen—death to kingdom man! So who and what will stop this slaughter?
The answer to this is the revelation of the Haman and what his plan and work has been. He took Judas to his gallows, and now he must come to his own “death,” to his own end, on his own gallows! Of course this comes not at the first wine banquet, which came 2,000 years ago. They knew nothing at all of what would be revealed today. Nothing! Only now can this truth be revealed and Satan and his work exposed. There was in fact a breach of 2,000 years between Esther’s two wine banquets. At the first one Satan Haman was not revealed. And furthermore, Satan received the right to take the 2,000 swine to the sea of death—the 2,000 years of the church, the breach. And only now can he be revealed and go to his own gallows. His time is up!
Let us now add some additional essential and revealing information. In the book of Esther, we see that the thirteenth day of Adar was to mean the annihilation of the Jews. But via the second wine banquet and the revelation of Haman Satan, the king made another decree that the Jews could defend themselves against their enemies. Thus on that otherwise fateful day they thoroughly routed their enemies. But, there was a unique and noteworthy addition. Esther requested that the king extend the cleansing in specifically the city of Susa for one more day, and this the king did. We will not go into the details of this, but what was supposed to be a one-day decree, was extended to a two-day decree in Susa. And as a result, the people in the rural areas who defeated their enemies on the thirteenth, celebrated Purim on the fourteenth; and the people in Susa who defeated their enemies on the thirteenth and the fourteenth (a double portion), celebrated Purim on the fifteenth (Esther 9). This is why Purim is a two-day fourteenth and fifteenth feast. So most importantly there were two separate results—a single portion and a double portion.
First, why were there two separate groups of people? For the same reason there were two wine banquets, two outpourings of the Spirit. Here again we find the two Remnants—one at the beginning and one at the end. The first gets a single portion, and the latter gets a double portion. And it is the latter work that fully secures killing the ten sons of Haman and all the other enemies. And we find this like single-portion/double-portion testimony in other related examples. Elijah received a portion of the Spirit, and the continuing Elisha received a double portion. The same, of course, was true with Job. After his own breach, in the end he too was blessed with a double portion of the former (Job 42:10).
And let us not forget the three times a king sent a captain of fifty with his fifty to get none other than Elijah (2 Kings 1). The first two groups were consumed by fire; and it was not until the third fifty that Elijah came down off of the mountain. Here again we find the testimony of Pentecost fifties, and the desired fulfillment is in the third. If one lays out the first Remnant, then the Body of Christ, and finally the second Remnant, do the first two works get the Elijah? Not at all. Here again, the Elijah will not come down until the latter fulfilling Pentecost, now associated with and fulfilled in Haman’s fifty-cubits gallows. Satan must come to an end, and Elijah take his place!
Let us now come to a more definite conclusion regarding this most revealing, and might we add most timely, testimony. Again, only now after twenty-three years of searching to understand how to receive the latter rain, is this amazing and hope-filled truth being revealed. Purim evidences to be the feast that should afford to us the latter rain in some measure or in some way. The specifics of this I do not yet know. And most interesting and noteworthy, the Hebrew calendar has this year’s Purim on February 28 and March 1. But the New Millennial Calendar dates coincide with the feast days of the 14th and 15th on March 14 and 15.
I am most grateful that of late Yahweh revealed that the donkey which has to be untied so as to bear Immanuel for His triumphal return is in fact the Elijah. See “Untying Elijah,” parts 1, 2, and 3 in the October, 2017, “Gary Reports.” Now we are seeing even more at this critical point. We can only hope that this is in fact the time for the latter rain. We will watch and wait and listen and see.
PS: You will want to read this again to more fully understand it.
PPS: Just when I thought I was finished, Yahweh showed me more—a second witness to what we are seeing in Esther. When the sons of Israel came out of Egypt, they went to Mount Sinai, wandered about in the wilderness, and after forty years came up to the Jordan River and entered into the Promised Land. It is most relevant that they left Egypt at Passover, and entered into the Promised Land at Passover. Let me get straight to the point. The latter was a repeat of the former. In fact, Deuteronomy 6:23 tells us: “He brought us out from there to bring us in.” They failed throughout the wilderness, and it was as though He was saying, “We’re going to start over.” This being the case, what now do we see being prophesied? Let me ask you: What in history did Passover look to? Where was it fulfilled? Of course it was fulfilled with Yahshua’s crucifixion. So, let’s go forward from there and what do we find? Remember, that which has been is that which will be, and I will have to get right to the point.
First, the immediate product of Yahshua’s crucifixion at Passover was the female Bride first Remnant. And likewise, the city of Jericho, which they took at the outset, testifies to that first Remnant. Jericho is called “the city of palm trees” (Deuteronomy 34:3), which looks specifically to the Bride. Tamar (Genesis 38) was clearly a Bride testimony, and her name means “palm tree.” Also, there was the Bride testimony of Deborah, who specifically sat under a palm tree when making her judgments (Judges 4:5). Both of these women attest to the Bride. And in Jericho itself we find the confirming testimony of the Bride in yet another woman—the harlot who hid the two Hebrew spies and tied a cord of scarlet thread in the window which delivered them alive. This is the like scarlet thread that was tied around the hand of “first-born” Zerah. And this is the scarlet thread that was dipped in the blood of the first bird that was slain so that the second bird could ascend alive (Leviticus 14). Of course Jericho—as well as Zerah, and even the first Remnant that was dispersed—had to be torn down.
The next town they attacked was Ai. But, when they tried to take it they were sorely defeated. Why? Getting right to the point, a man named Achan had taken some of the spoils from first-Remnant Jericho which were under the ban—belonging to Yahweh (Joshua 6:17)! As the first Remnant, they belonged to God. So how did they find out who it was? Here once again we find a first-Remnant testimony—they too cast lots (Joshua 7:14)!
In this account thus far, we find all the elements of the first Remnant at the beginning of the church upon the fulfillment of Passover. There is the testimony of the Jericho first Remnant, but then the immediate failure and the cause thereof revealed by the casting of lots—which of course occurred as well at the beginning of the church once Yahshua departed from them. But who is this Achan who caused trouble to the Israelites? One evidence is the meaning of his name. It means “troubler,” or possibly even “serpent” (Jones Dictionary). In Isaiah 27:1 we read: “In that day Yahweh will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, with His fierce and great and mighty sword, even Leviathan the twisted serpent; and He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.”
Furthermore, Achan was in fact in the lineage of Zerah, who was born of Tamar. Zerah was Achan’s great grandfather. We already know that “Zerah” means “light.” But 2 Corinthians 11:14 warns us: “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” And we also find that “Lucifer” means “light-bearer (Strong’s). And in Ezekiel 28:7 and 17 we see that he once possessed the splendor, brightness, or light of God—and was thereupon corrupted by reason of it. (Listen to the podcast, “The Father’s Unfaithful Wife.”) Satan was once the light-bearer; but he fell, and that true and fulfilling light must now go to another—the Elijah. This Achan was indeed Satan. And just as Satan Haman cast lots to destroy the Jews, so the apostles must have listened to Satan to cast lots for a replacement for Judas when Satan was in fact the replacement. And, as the casting of lots was turned to mean Haman’s destruction, so Satan will be destroyed and in the end be cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).
From Zerah there must be a lineage that leads to the Elijah light; but, this had to include the breach of Satan. This is true with Perez, the breach, as well. It was from him that the lineage of Yahshua came. But, was there not also a breach there as well? Indeed. Yahshua died, went back to heaven, and then came the breach of Christianity, the Body of Christ. What now follows? Of course nothing less than Christ Himself as King of kings and Lord of lords!
In Joshua 7:24-26 we read that Achan and his family and his livestock and all he had was taken out to the valley of Achor, and there they stoned them, and burned them and all they had—a lake of fire. And most significantly and most welcomed, this destruction of Achan broke the curse that had come upon the sons of Israel, and thereupon gave them victory over Ai. This is what we have to have today. Achan Satan has to be judged so that we can now have victory! And ALL of this comes through the lineage of Judah. Oh the marvelous wonder of what the Father has performed! It is indeed the knowledge of good and Evil.
Achor is most significant in this testimony. As with “Achan,” “Achor” likewise means “to stir up or cause trouble, troubler.” Such is indeed Satan; for two thousand years he has been the troubler of the church. And of course he has caused the corruption of the church, beginning with the casting of lots for the replacement of Judas, which was himself! But now his time period has come to an end! And what will this mean for the church? In Hosea 2:15, specifically regarding Yahshua’s bride, Yahweh declares:
“Then I will give her her vineyards from there, and the valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will sing there as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.”
The Valley of Achor where Satan is judged and even burned after being revealed by the casting of lots, will be turned into the door of hope. This fulfillment is specifically for today! Also, this verse has long been a scripture of delight for me, that Yahweh would turn the valley of Achor into a door of hope. By the judgment of Satan, we today will know and experience Yahweh in an entirely new way. Also, even as the casting of lots by Haman which was intended for evil was turned to good, so the casting of lots by the disciples that was wrong will now be turned to good—Satan Achan Haman is now exposed and the office of the twelfth apostle that went from Judas to Satan will now go to the Elijah. This is the victory we see regarding Achor, affording us victory that had before been defeat—Ai.
As noted in Abarim Publications, “The name Ai comes from the verb עוה ('awa), meaning to bend or twist to a point of destruction.” And of course Achan himself means twisted as well. Is it not obvious we are talking here about the twisted serpent, Satan? And as we read in Joshua 8, the Israelites utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai, and then burned it and “made it a heap forever.” Finally, they “hanged the king of Ai on a tree until evening; and at sunset Joshua gave command and they took his body down from the tree and threw it at the entrance of the city gate, and raised over it a great heap of stones that stands to this day.” How is that for totally eliminating Satan and his works? In toto! Other than a brief release following the Millennial Reign, he is finished! And good riddance!
In the next verse in Hosea 2 we read:
“’It will come about in that day,’ declares Yahweh, ‘that you will call Me, “My husband,” and will no longer call Me, “My master [Baali].”’”
Yahweh establishes the Bride!
In this account regarding Achan we find yet another clear and affirming testimony of what the Father has done, and what He is about to do—completing the work He began two thousand years ago. He is causing the valley of Achor to become a door of hope. This is the door spoken of as well in Revelation 3:8 regarding the second Remnant Philadelphia church: “Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut.” We take hope in all that He is revealing to us at this time—that we would not be ignorant and walk in darkness, as has been the case for two thousand years.
In Deuteronomy 19:15 we read: “on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.” Clearly, we see two witnesses in this report as to what the Father is doing, and we take hope in Him at this critical and even world-changing time in regard to the kingdom of God. These two witnesses are the book of Esther where Haman Satan is destroyed, and now the witness of the Israelites entering into the Promised Land and the same Achan Satan is destroyed, as well as Ai. Blessed be Yahweh for opening our eyes to see these wonderful truths at this critical time.
In Job 33:14 thru 18 we read the prophetic words of Elihu, the Elijah, and they too relate directly to us at this time:
“Indeed God speaks once, or twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls on men, while they slumber in their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction, that He may turn man aside from his conduct, and keep man from pride; He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from passing over into Sheol.”
Sheol is death, and this passage not only speaks directly to us today, but is most likely being fulfilled right now. Likewise here, God has spoken to us “once” from the book of Esther, and now He speaks “twice” from the like message regarding entering into the Promised Land and the hope at Achor. We will now watch and wait and see what the Father will perform in this critical time for mankind. May He be praised! And may we now receive our much-needed victory at “Ai,” and from thenceforth.
Amen and amen!
Wonderful Hope In The Book Of Esther!, pt. 2 of 3
January 6th 2018 - First, in response to the last “Gary Report,” a Bride brother in Australia, Rian, made the following insightful observations that are most worthy for you to read. I trust you will appreciate them as much as I did. It is wonderful truth.
I like your introduction: "...the female, the woman, is a highly impacting part of the kingdom of God—in its destruction, as well as in its restoration and fulfillment,” and further on "...the natural woman effects destruction, particularly so today, while the spiritual fulfillment effects life ever after." That is such a hopeful statement as it really enlightens the fact how the fulfillment of the restoration of mankind will be made possible. It's like the missing link (or rather hidden mystery) of Romans 5:19: "For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous." Of course this scripture refers to the 1st Adam and 2nd Adam, so obviously one cannot ignore then the 1st Eve and a 2nd Eve. It really brings a balance to the completeness of the restoration process that WILL take place. The fulfillment of Christ as the 2nd Adam already took place as indicated by Romans 5:18: "Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life." Then it just seems obvious that there is to be a fulfillment of the opposite type of Eve being deceived by the serpent. It's very encouraging that the Bride will not be deceived by Satan, which will result in the opportunity of the Bride passing on truth to the Body of Christ, Christianity. And this will result in it's restoration, which is what will most likely take place in the Millennial Reign—as the Serpent will be bound and not be in the kingdom like he was in the Garden, so that the Body of Christ can receive the truth (from the Tree of Life) unto restoration. Would this be in essence what you wrote here as well? "But, lest no man be saved (Matthew 24:22), the kingdom must be cut short from three thousand to two thousand years, and thereupon Yahshua come early and establish now a redeeming female work that affords mankind the true and fulfilling and everlasting pure kingdom."
And he also added:
Another thing that stood out to me was this bit from Esther, chapter 1, that you quoted from: "If it pleases the king, let a royal edict be issued by him and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media so that it cannot be repealed, that Vashti may no longer come into the presence of King Ahasuerus, and let the king give her royal position to another who is more worthy than she."
What stood out to me was that it was written in the Laws of the Persians and Medes that Vashti may no longer come into the presence of the king. That seems very closely linked to the account of the Medes invading Babylon and beheading Belshazzar/Satan, which then seems similar to the law of the Medes that would remove Vashti/Satan from his/her position of being in the presence of the king. I find it very interesting that both of these accounts involve the Medes.
I wanted to share these with you, and they speak for themselves. Now let me add something that is timely, and you will want to read this very carefully. There is a lot here! In the last report I spoke of the events surrounding Esther, and related them to the displacement of Satan. Of course what we are seeing is the Esther Bride replacing Haman Satan. But what I want you to see is the marvel and hopeful relationship of all of this per the time we are in right now. Let me explain.
In the Law we find three feasts that the Israelites were to carry out: Passover, Pentecost, and then later in the year, Tabernacles. And the reality is—Passover has been fulfilled with Yahshua’s crucifixion; and shortly thereafter Pentecost was fulfilled with the outpouring of the Spirit, the former rain; and Tabernacles is the last of the three feasts and has not yet been fulfilled. But most interestingly, there was another feast added later. This would be Purim. And the question begs to be answered: Why did Yahweh add yet another feast? And we also need to ask: Why was this feast added when the Sons of Israel were in captivity in Persia?
First, let us address this as noted by Rian. The Medes here have the specific identity of being the first Remnant. Click here for more on this. What we find in this highly revealing and prophetic pattern is: Darius the Mede (who conquered Babylon and killed Satan Belshazzar), followed by Cyrus, and concluded with Darius the Persian. Thus we see that the first Remnant is identified with the Medes, Christianity is identified with Cyrus, and the second Remnant is identified with the Persians. According to Daniel 9:1, Ahasuerus is the father of Darius the Mede. Thus we see a testimony of the first Remnant, and of course the second Remnant is to follow later. The reality is, like the first bird killed in the cleansing of the leper, allowing the second bird to ascend alive (Leviticus 14), the first Remnant secured the work, but the second Remnant actually fulfills it. It is in fact a two-blow death work against Satan.
Of course this delay in fulfillment is testified in other ways as well. Noteworthy here, when King Ahasuerus could not sleep, he read the book of records and found that he had never bestowed upon Mordecai any honor or dignity for saving his life (Esther 6). So, Mordecai’s honor was equally delayed. Is this not the case with the first Remnant and the second Remnant? The honor acquired by the first Remnant is delayed so as to be bestowed upon the second Remnant. Equally, Judas died as a first bird, and the success is delayed until the second bird that ascends alive. And thus we see that the honor Mordecai secured long before, was not fulfilled until it was time for Satan Haman to be revealed. But first, just as Mordecai was lifted up on the king’s horse and the king’s robe placed upon him, so Satan has to lift up the fulfilling Elijah and honor him, and thereupon declare: “Thus it shall be done to the man whom the King desires to honor.”
It is also noteworthy that the king’s crown is addressed here in a most unique way, as though it too was thereupon worn by Mordecai. But, evidently it was not. Haman answered the king, “For the man whom the king desires to honor, let them bring a royal robe which the king has worn, and the horse on which the king has ridden, and on whose head a royal crown has been placed” (Esther 6:7-8). It seems that Haman was suggesting that a royal crown be placed upon Mordecai’s head. But in the next verse we read: “and let the robe and the horse be handed over to one of the king’s most noble princes and let them array the man whom the king desires to honor.” The crown is not mentioned. Even so, we do see in Esther 8:15 that Mordecai does indeed wear the crown: “Then Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal robes of blue and white, with a large crown of gold, and a garment of fine linen and purple; and the city of Susa shouted and rejoiced.” And this was the case with Esther as well: “The king loved Esther more than all the women, and she found favor and kindness with him more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”
So what can this mean? In Revelation 4:4 we read: “Around the throne were twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and golden crowns on their heads.” Yahshua, the King, the Ahasuerus, wears a crown (Revelation 14:14), along with the twenty-four elders, who are in fact the twelve and twelve apostles who reign with Him in the Millennial period. This is the crown of righteousness, the crown of life that is given to the apostles, even to the Bride.
In summary, what we find in the book of Esther is an extraordinarily complete and revealing account relative to what we are seeing today regarding the Bride. There is Vashti Satan, there is the Esther Bride, there is the Mordecai Elijah who is lifted up after a delay, there are the two wine banquets of the former and latter rains, there is King Ahasuerus (Yahshua) whose name means “prince or head,” there is Satan Haman who is revealed by the Bride and is hung on his own fifty-cubit gallows (the number in the count to Pentecost), and there is the testimony of the Bride that reigns with Yahshua, wearing the like crown. But there is one more thing here that is most hopeful for us at this specific time.
Why did Yahweh God add yet another feast after laying out the feasts in the Law? And why is this feast associated with a time of being in captivity, versus being in Jerusalem? And why was it a celebration of being delivered from death, obtaining deliverance from the one who was their enemy and had the right and plan to kill them? To understand this, keep in mind where we are today. How many years was the Body of Christ supposed to go to the grave? Three thousand years. And what would be the outcome if that planned period was carried out? As Yahshua declared in Matthew 24:22, “Unless those days were cut short, no flesh would have been saved; but because of the elect those days will be cut short.” After three “hours,” three thousand years, it would be “My God my God, why have you forsaken us!” But that time has to be cut short from 3,000 to 2,000 years and Yahshua come back early, before the time. We have to be delivered from our enemy Haman Satan while we are in a period of captivity, and that is why the book of Esther was added with its promise for yet another feast—Purim! Yahweh adds this feast, separate and apart from the others, so that we, the Bride, can be delivered at this time—today! Again, this account is complete in testimony in every regard! Purim was added for the fulfillment of the two-part Remnant!
And what will be the outcome of the fulfillment of this feast today? In Esther 8:1 the queen was given Haman’s house! Likewise, the Bride gets the house that Satan has thus far occupied. Here again, the Bride is seen occupying that which Satan has possessed, just as Esther occupied the place of Vashti. And Mordecai, the Elijah, gets the King’s signet ring which had been given to Satan Haman (8:2). And both Esther and Mordecai wear the crown. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Satan Haman. Do you see testified here what is about to happen?
Now seeing and understanding all of this, I hope that we will behold the beginning of the fulfillment of this critical feast in the days before us. In the Hebrew calendar, Purim is February 28-March 1, 2018. In the New Millennial Calendar, Purim is March 14-15. I began my walk with Yahshua in mid-January, 1971, and would love to have yet another beginning in January/February, 2018. Furthermore, as addressed in the “Gary Report” titled “The Covenant With The Many,” November 12, 2017, if Yahweh follows the pattern of my own life and begins a work in the middle of my seventieth year, that would take place in early February of this year. Whatever the case, I hope we are finally at the place where we see and experience all of these things so clearly attested in the book of Esther regarding the Elijah and the Bride. But it is all in the hands of the Father and He alone can perform it. We wait upon Him. May Yahweh be glorified!
The Tale of Two Women—Vashti and Esther, pt. 1 of 3
December 20th 2017 - As you have seen in the writings here and will see in this report as well, the female, the woman, is a highly impacting part of the kingdom of God—in its destruction, as well as in its restoration and fulfillment. We will see both in this report.
As with the tree that harbored the serpent, still today the woman is infatuated with and tempted to eat from this tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It is most important to note that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is masculine, while the tree of life is feminine—the one that indeed brings forth/births life. In fact “Eve,” the name Adam gave to the woman after the fall, means “life” or “life-giving.” But sadly and destructively, as in the Garden, the woman continues to be tempted by Satan to be like the man, to stand in his place, and thereupon brings forth the same suffering and loss and death! And in this role reversal, she thereupon refuses her own worthy and vital purpose—abandoning her role and function as a mother of life, ignoring the relevant injunction that she will be saved through the bearing of children (1 Timothy 2:15). How can “Eve” bring forth life when she seeks to be the masculine tree of the knowledge of good and evil?
There have been numerous writings and such here addressing this matter of the failure and iniquity of the woman, and of necessity has to be examined once again—providing added insight and hopefully timely understanding. In the opening chapters of the Bible, we find the seed testimony of the fall of all mankind that has determined our course and perpetual fate for six thousand years! In the Garden, the woman listened to the voice of Satan, and thereupon was, as it is written, “completely deceived” and partook of the forbidden fruit. But in this wholly destructive act, the man was not deceived, but instead failed upon listening to the voice of the woman! In 2 Timothy 2:14 we read: “And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being completely deceived, fell into transgression.” While the woman listened to the voice of the serpent, the man listened to the voice of the woman and was thereupon cursed. Yahweh declared to Adam: “Because you listened to the voice of your woman,” and thereupon the curse on the man was delivered (Genesis 3:17-19).
And even more relevant, the Garden was a type of the kingdom of God, and therein we find the seed testimony of the destruction of the kingdom for what would be a duration of three thousand years. But, lest no man be saved (Matthew 24:22), the kingdom must be cut short from three thousand to two thousand years, and thereupon Yahshua come early and establish now a redeeming female work that affords mankind the true and fulfilling and everlasting pure kingdom!
Do you understand this? Those three opening chapters of the Bible tell more than any other like chapters. But the thing is, it is in a riddle, a hidden mystery. And the only way one can understand a riddle is to plow with the heifer. Sampson declared, “If you had not plowed with my heifer, you would not have found out my riddle” (Judges 14:18). Only the Bride can reveal these never-before-seen truths. The afflicted Body of Christ is blindfolded so it cannot see, and even put to sleep! They are in hades, which literally means: “not see.” Christianity cannot see what the Father is and has been doing in the kingdom.
And let us here repeat the opening statement: the female, the woman, is a highly impacting part of the kingdom of God—both in its destruction and in its restoration. And what we find is that the natural woman effects destruction, particularly so today, while the spiritual fulfillment effects life ever after. This is most clearly seen in the testimony set forth in Vashti and Ester, which we will now consider.
In chapter 1 of the book of Esther, we find that in the third year of the reign of the Persian king, King Ahasuerus, he held a banquet for all the princes and nobles and officers; and on the seventh and final day of the banquet he ordered that Queen Vashti be brought before his guests. But, most tellingly, she refused to come! She did her will, and not that of her lord, her husband. Thereupon, he spoke to the wise men who understood the times and the law and justice, and inquired what was to be done with Queen Vashti, because she did not obey the command of the king. Here was their wise and telling reply:
“Queen Vashti has wronged not only the king but also all the princes and all the peoples who are in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus. For the queen’s conduct will become known to all the women causing them to look with contempt on their husbands by saying, ‘King Ahasuerus commanded Queen Vashti to be brought in to his presence, but she did not come.’ This day the ladies of Persia and Media who have heard of the queen’s conduct will speak in the same way to all the king’s princes, and there will be plenty of contempt and anger. If it pleases the king, let a royal edict be issued by him and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media so that it cannot be repealed, that Vashti may no longer come into the presence of King Ahasuerus, and let the king give her royal position to another who is more worthy than she. When the king’s edict which he will make is heard throughout all his kingdom, great as it is, then all women will give honor to their husbands, great and small.”
Vashti made her choice, and she reaped what she sowed—she would not come into the presence of the king, thus she would never more come into his presence! Knowing that this is prophetic, first we rightly ask: What is the significance that this event took place in the third year of the king’s reign, and that Vashti was summoned on the seventh and final day of the feast? It is not by happenstance that these two testimonies appear here. The fact is, this speaks of the third period of time for the church—the third one thousand years. And likewise, this is the seventh one-thousand-year period of mankind—the sabbath rest. So, we have two witnesses that this parable, as it truly is, will be fulfilled today!
What are we seeing testified here? First, this entire account, as well as the entire book, is one of the most revealing testimonies there is regarding the Bride. We will not elaborate on this, but Esther is the Bride, and Vashti is Satan (listen to “The Father’s Unfaithful Wife”). So what we see is that unfaithful Satan will be replaced by the fulfilling Bride. And when does this take place? Exactly as testified in this account: in the third “year,” in the seventh “day.”
So we now ask: Other than the establishment of the Esther Bride, what will be the outcome of Satan being put away? To answer this, what was the fear that the wise men had when Vashti did not obey? As stated, it was: “For the queen’s conduct will become known to all the women causing them to look with contempt on their husbands by saying, ‘King Ahasuerus commanded Queen Vashti to be brought in to his presence, but she did not come.’”
Brothers and sisters, we have a problem today in society that is rooted all the way back in the Garden—where the woman wants to be like the man. Women are following in the way of Satan, the serpent, and equally “look with contempt on their husbands.” May I be personal here? I for one know this all too well. Since 2003, and even before that, my wife has equally held me in contempt because of what I believe. And as an intercessor, I had to experience what all of society sadly suffers—women following in the rebellion of Satan! Based on the actions of my wife, Satan Vashti is not yet replaced by the Esther Bride. And, based on society today as well, Satan Vashti is not yet replaced by the Esther Bride. To say this in another way, women today continue to listen to the serpent and want to do his/her will and not the will of their husbands! (And many husbands are completely ignorant of God’s purpose for the woman.) They are rebellious, self-willed Vashties! And what needs to happen is that Satan loses his/her place and it goes to the fulfilling Bride, the Esther.
To solve this problem regarding Satan, can the Body of Christ prevail over him/her? I assure you, they have NOT been able to do so for two thousand years, so how could they succeed today? They have in fact been turned over to Satan, just as Christ was turned over to Satan. As went Christ, so has gone the Body of Christ. In this third/seventh day, the ONLY solution is for the Body of Christ to be put to sleep, its side opened, a rib (the twelfth apostle, the Elijah) taken out, and a Bride formed—the Esther. As with Esther, the Bride passes through a period of beautification and then goes in to the King. We read in Esther 2:16 that “Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus to his royal palace in the tenth month which is the month Tebeth.” This was the testing moment for Esther to see if she found favor with the king. Tebeth correlates to our mid-December to mid-January, which we are entering into at the formulation of this writing. And in verse 17 we read the outcome: “The king loved Esther more than all the women, and she found favor and kindness with him more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.” This is what we need to happen today. Satan needs to be replaced by the Bride, which finds favor and kindness with the King.
What today is to be our outcome? If “Vashti” is rejected and the Bride is established, this matter of the rebellion of women in all aspects will change. As we read regarding the proposed judgment of Vashti set forth by the wise counselors, “When the king’s [King’s] edict which he [He] will make is heard throughout all his [His] kingdom, great as it is, then all women will give honor to their husbands, great and small.” That will be a wonderful day when women reject following in the ways of Vashti Satan and honor their husbands instead. It will be a great day when women reject standing in the place of the man, seeking to be like him, eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I for one will be glad to have a wife who once again honors me as her husband and lord. This is no less than the honor that the Scriptures require.
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives are to be to their husbands in everything (Ephesians 5:22-24).
Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord (Colossians 3:18).
For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear (1 Peter 3:5-6).

Once again, at this time we wait. The next two months have the appearance of being critical. It is hopeful that Vashti went to the king in the period of mid-December to mid-January. Of course this is exactly where we are right now; and seeing these highly relevant things gives hope. Also, I began my walk with Yahshua in mid-January, 1971, and would love to have yet another beginning in January/February, 2018. But this beginning would be one for ALL mankind! What we now need is for the Esther to find favor in the eyes of the King of kings. And with that, all of the other prophetic testimonies of this incredible book of Esther will likewise be fulfilled—the second wine banquet, the lifting up of the Mordecai, the revelation of and death of Haman Satan, and the curse of death reversed, our enemies destroyed, and the Bride delivered alive! All of this is prophesied in this marvelous book of Esther, and we hope for its fulfillment now. And also, the Persian/Assyrian word for Tebeth means “rain,” something we desperately need!
Blessings to all,
“Grace” That Leads To Sin And Death
December 9th 2017 - Let me invite you to read the most recent writing titled “’Grace’ That Leads To Sin And Death.” Here is its description:
Today, people have a very dangerous concept concerning “grace.” And compounding this all the more is the worldliness of the church! Here, Gary examines what the Scriptures say regarding grace, including going back into the Old Testament to see what provision was made for sins. Were the sacrifices for intentional or unintentional sins? This is a critical question! Also, he goes into the book of Romans, and other related passages, carefully examining this matter in relation to the Jews, Christians, and the Bride. You will find this most helpful and challenging—which we certainly need today!

Georgia Dome Comes Down!
November 20th 2017 - Today the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia, came down! Why do I note this? Because in 1996 Yahweh led me to that very dome to warn the pastors who were gathering there that they would be judged and that the dome would come down upon them. Of course that did not happen; but there was and is no question that the Father sent me there to speak this. I cannot here go into all that occurred at that event, but you can read about it by clicking here. It is most interesting and profound, and was undeniably intercessoral. In fact, it had a dramatic affect on my life and what I teach, and unfortunately marked the beginning of the end of my family.
The event was under the auspices of Promise Keepers, a short-lived ministry whose purpose was to strengthen the spiritual walk of men. And this event was the first, and maybe the only, meeting exclusively for pastors. It was titled “Fan Into Flame.” (Frankly, that speaks of purification and is what we need right now in the church.)
The very fact that I was able to go and even do this was divinely planned. And what took place while I was there was clearly the work of the Father. Again, read the linked writing about this. But in short, my oldest daughter, Christi, and I went there and I stood outside of the dome and warned the incoming pastors that Yahweh was going to judge them, and I fully anticipated that they would all suffer death. That may sound extreme or excessive, but I had no other choice than to proclaim it. The linked writing is titled “Jonah Goes To Georgia,” and when you read it you will understand this comparison to Jonah. And as with Jonah, instead of judgment, Yahweh had mercy. It was from that point on that I learned that He would have mercy on pastors. But when I awoke this morning, I was amazed to watch the implosion of none other than the Georgia Dome!
Today the Georgia Dome did come down, just as Christianity will indeed come down, and just as the tree of Nebuchadnezzar did come down (Daniel 4:10f); but the difference in the resulting fate of that dome today was that no one perished. And such is the fate of Christianity. It does come down, but Yahweh will spare their lives.
I must say that now twenty-one years later, that which I was sent to proclaim in Atlanta did today come to pass, and is rather hopeful and encouraging. And the marvel is that the dome was only twenty-five years old. And yes, it came down suddenly—collapsing in a mere fifteen seconds! Watch it here.
My hope is that what took place today—when clearly I was sent there in 1996 to proclaim—is spiritually going to take place now. Promise Keepers did not last, but the Father has kept me and I am here hopefully to proclaim to all men what He is doing in the church and for all mankind. The Spirit came upon me in 1994, and two years later I went to the Georgia Dome. Now we are at the close of 2017 and going into 2018, and if the Spirit comes upon me/us now, there will be another two-year period—the concluding work of the covenant with the many.
I am reminded here of the words of Yahweh regarding the Elijah: “’Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple. And the messenger of the covenant (Elijah), in whom you delight, behold, he is coming,’ says Yahweh of hosts”(Malachi 3:1). That dome fell in a mere fifteen seconds, and I pray that the Elijah Bride will suddenly begin as well.
The Covenant With The Many
November 12th 2017 - We will once again begin by referring to the PS from the October 29, 2017, report.
PS: A brother upon reading the above noted that Jeremiah 29:10 states, “When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place.” Of course that seventieth year is on the other side of sixth-nine. So what could this mean for me, for us? I do not like the idea of waiting seventy years; but if that is what has to happen, ANYTHING is worth waiting for Yahweh to visit us and fulfill His good word to us, . . .! We will wait and see.
Let us look further at this matter of reckoning time. My response was based on the concept of being on the other side of the seventieth year. But in reality, time is reckoned where the seventieth year itself is the fulfillment. In other words, the completion of seventy years would actually mean the completion in the seventieth year. Let me explain. This is an vital distinction. And in examining this we find other revealing testimonies directly tied to this event.
First, the reference I used in Jeremiah 29:10 used the word “completed.” But, a more accurate translation is “accomplished.” It is actually the attitude of the fullness of that time, and the seventieth year marked the fullness of the waiting period when the Jews could return back to their land.
In fact, this matter of the return of the Jews upon seventy years is the basis for that set forth in Daniel 9. What happened to the Jews on a “man” level, has been and will be fulfilled in the kingdom of heaven level. Herein seventy years come to be fulfilled in part in seventy times seven years. And, this chapter relates directly to where we are today, as carefully examined in The Great Tribulation. You will want to read that; but from that account we read in a more literal and accurate translation of verses 24-27:
24. Seventy periods of seven have been decreed for your people and your holy city: to bring to an end the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the holy.
25. So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there will be seven periods of seven and sixty-two periods of seven; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.
26. Then after the sixty-two periods of seven the Messiah will be cut off and have no one; and the people of the Prince who shall come will destroy the city and the sanctuary, and the end will come with a flood; even to the end of the battle, desolations are determined.
27. And He [Messiah] will prevail in the covenant with the many for a period of seven, but in the middle of the period of seven, He will cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease; and for the overspreading of abominations, He will make desolate, even until the consummation, and that which is determined will be poured out upon the desolate.”
So, in the like accounting of seventy periods of seven, there were sixty-nine periods of seven, and then came the long awaited seventieth period. Relative to what we are addressing here on a personal level, you will notice that it is indeed in this last period of seven years where the awaited fulfillment comes. In fact, Yahshua’s ministry began precisely in the middle of this seventieth period. Therefore, based on this entirely related testimony, on the “other side” of the seventy years of my life would in fact have to be the seventieth year, and not after it.
And just to add yet another explanation regarding the way time is actually reckoned, when we say that we are in the twenty-first century, does that mean our present year is 2117? Not at all. We are in the seventeenth year of the twenty-first century, or 2017. Or let’s look at it this way—when a child is born, they actually begin their first year. And when we say they are now one, in truth they are in their second year. So here again, I am presently in my seventieth year.
Now, given the GREAT significance of this seventieth period of seven, which in the time of Daniel was in fact the seventieth year, if Yahweh is going to do something in the order of and with the fulfilling purpose of what we see in both of these seventy-count testimonies, it would take place in the period from August 7, 2017, to August 7, 2018. And if Yahweh chooses to follow the pattern of the middle of the seventieth, that would mean He would move in early February. Interestingly, when I came back to America after three months of teaching in Africa, I arrived here on February 28, 2016.
Of course the works that are set forth in Daniel 9 in that final seventieth period of seven years are: Yahshua’s three and a half years on this earth, followed in time by the year and a half of the first Remnant, and what is left is the balance of two years that the second Remnant must now fulfill. And technically they all take place via the promise of the seventieth period of Daniel 9.
And, there is indeed the pattern where Yahweh has mercy in the middle. And the fact that all of this is being revealed to me in my seventieth year is most hopeful. As this report is being published, we have entered into November, which would be the junction of the 1 ½ and the 2 in this man-wise short-term time period.
Therefore, it is MOST fitting that what occurred in the pattern of both Daniel 9 and Jeremiah 29 would be repeated today in my own life. If Yahweh was going to fulfill the remaining balance of the covenant with the many, would He not do so per this same pattern? And would it not even be legally necessary to have a touch point specifically to the seventieth year? It certainly appears so.
Two of those Daniel 9 works have been fulfilled: Messiah the Prince and the first Remnant. There is yet a third to be completed—the second Remnant. And that is what we look to be fulfilled today with the repairing of the separating breach of Christianity—the people of the Prince who destroy the city and the sanctuary. What we have to have today is the flood of the Holy Spirit, the latter rain. For a better understanding of this, read The Great Tribulation.
If we receive at this time the blessings according to what we are seeing here, we will fulfill the 70 and enter into the promised 2—the two years of the latter rain and Yahweh calling out and preparing a bride for His Son. In Jeremiah 29:10 we read: “When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place.” I married my bride in ’69, and I am what we call 69 years of age—both of these actually being 70s. So will Yahshua now marry His bride and give us the Holy Spirit? I hope so!
It seems quite evident in all that we are seeing and understanding right now that we are seeing Yahweh’s back—what He is performing as He goes before us. And we are most grateful for this, and look to Him to complete and fulfill His good word to us. If you have any questions about this, email me. I will keep you informed of any new developments or further understanding.
Seventy and Two
November 9th 2017 - In the PS of the October 29, 2017, report, I noted:
A brother upon reading the above noted that Jeremiah 29:10 states, “When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place.” Of course that seventieth year is on the other side of sixty-nine. So what could this mean for me, for us? I do not like the idea of waiting seventy years; but if that is what has to happen, ANYTHING is worth waiting for Yahweh to visit us and fulfill His good word to us, . . .! We will wait and see.
Let us consider for a moment that this is indeed what takes place. So, is there anything in the Scriptures that would confirm or support this possibility? Indeed. In Numbers 11:16-29 we read what took place when the people complained after leaving Egypt, and they wanted meat. In verses 16-17 we read Yahweh’s answer:
Yahweh therefore said to Moses, “Gather for Me seventy men from the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and their officers and bring them to the tent of meeting, and let them take their stand there with you. Then I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take of the Spirit who is upon you, and will put Him upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, so that you will not bear it all alone.”
Then verses 24-25 tell us:
So Moses went out and told the people the words of Yahweh. Also, he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and stationed them around the tent. Then Yahweh came down in the cloud and spoke to him; and He took of the Spirit who was upon him and placed Him upon the seventy elders. And when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did not do it again.
So, the seventy prophesied, but did not do so again. And then something followed that makes absolutely no practical sense. Even so, what have you learned about the Scriptures? The first priority of the Scripters is prophecy: prophecy, moral virtue, and then history. And what you are going to now see is indeed prophecy, because from a natural standpoint it does not compute. In verse 26 we next read:
But two men had remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the other Medad. And the Spirit rested upon them (now they were among those who had been registered, but had not gone out to the tent), and they prophesied in the camp.
Hold it! We just read in verse 24 that Moses “gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and stationed them around the tent.” Yet now we read: “But two men had remained in the camp.” How can the seventy gather around the tent, and there still be two who remained in the camp? The answer? Prophecy!
And continuing in this prophecy, in verses 27-29 we read:
So a young man ran and told Moses and said, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” Then Joshua the son of Nun, the attendant of Moses from his youth, said, “Moses, my lord, restrain them.” But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all Yahweh’s people were prophets, that Yahweh would put His Spirit upon them!”
So, what do we find prophesied here? Relative to prophecy and the continuation thereof, it is a 70 and 2 pattern, with the latter 2 being ongoing, and the desire that Yahweh would place His Spirit upon all of His people.
What could this mean today? If as presented in the PS that the completion of the seventieth year is the time we the Bride have been waiting for, then Yahweh will declare: “I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, . . . and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile“ (Jeremiah 29:14). This is right in line with the assessment of the fulfilling Bride today:
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb” (Revelation 7:9-10).
And now we see in this living parable that there is a 70 and 2 pattern that will bring about a much longed for and much needed period of two years where Yahweh’s people will proclaim real and lasting truth and He will put His Spirit upon them—the latter rain!
Let us be more specific now. As I write this I am 69 years of age, which has been carried out as three very specific periods of 23 years each. Now, if Yahweh waits until it is on the other side of 70 years (as prophesied in Jeremiah 29:10), then yes, the Spirit would come upon us as testified by Eldad and Medad. This is the Spirit that is fulfilled when on the other side of the 70. This would in fact be the latter rain ministry period of the two years remaining in the covenant with the many. So we see a very clear testimony, even in a Bible contradiction—that the pattern of the latter rain could be fulfilled via a 70-and-2-year period.
And briefly, the meaning of the names of these two men upon whom the Spirit rested and they prophesied, are quite hopeful as well. Eldad means “God has loved,” and Medad means “beloved.” One cannot help but consider these names as being relevant to a bride.
And if this evidence was not already sufficient, let me provide yet another testimony concerning this. Around 1990 when I was operating Sonshine House Ministries, for about three years I had been saving in order to buy some property at Forney, Texas, in order to build an apartment facility for the needy. I had a weekday radio program called “The Corners of Your Field,” as well as a large thrift store. These generated the finances needed to buy the land which was $70,000. Surprisingly, I had actually saved that much money in those three or so years, and went back to the landowner to purchase it. But to my surprise, he now would not sell it to me. There was a neighboring property owner who opposed the purchase.
There was nothing I could do at that point, and equally surprising the two things that provided the $70,000 now began to absorb it. We eventually closed what had become two thrift stores, and I began yet another business, a pallet business, associated with the ministry which was successful.
But just a few days before writing this report you are now reading, it suddenly dawned on me what was obviously taking place in all of that. You see, the land was $70,000, and what we in fact saved was $72,000. So, here again was a $70,000 and $2,000, or a 70 and 2. So, why would Yahweh perform this? Why did He give me the large sum of money and then take it away? Well, I will ask you a question: Why did Yahweh give the first Remnant the Spirit in full measure and wonderful uninterrupted success for a year and a half, and then take it all away? That work was totally dispersed! It too came to a sorrowful end! The answer? Because it too had to die and be sown into death so that the fulfilling second Remnant could come and succeed—fulfilling what was promised to the former. (And might I say here, this is the same pattern regarding Yahshua’s first coming that led to death, versus His second coming where He reigns.)
Do you now see why Yahweh amazingly provided the first $70,000 and $2,000, or the first 70 and 2, in order to provide the latter 70 years and 2 years today? The former was provided to afford a place for the natural poor and needy; but the true and much needed fulfillment would in fact look to the 70 years and 2 years which would give us the ability today to purchase/receive the kingdom for the spiritual poor and needy. I finished every radio program at that time with this line: “This is Gary Naler, will you give the corners of your field?” It was based on Leviticus 23:22—“When you reap the harvest of your land, moreover, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the needy and the stranger.” Today, before the coming of Immanuel, we need to glean a bride, a Ruth, for Yahshua from the four corners of the earth (Revelation 7:1-3).
In around 1990 Yahweh sowed $70,000 for the natural home for the needy, so that today after 70 years we can receive the home for the fulfilling Bride. And the $2,000 that would have been remaining, looks to the 2 years of the remaining covenant with the many. May our long-awaited hope be fulfilled. We reap what we sow, and around twenty-seven years ago Yahweh sowed a seed that hopefully will find much-needed fulfillment today.
Blessed be His name forever,
The Gate That Leads To Life
November 5th 2017 - To begin this report, let me remind you that both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament gospels, Bible contradictions prophesy, they speak; and it is not just in contradictions, but in gospel comparisons as well. In this report we are going to examine such a comparison that is most relevant to our hope of ascending alive!
In Matthew 7:13-14 we read the words of Yahshua:
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is narrow and the way is [literally] afflicted that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
And in Luke 13:23-25 and 30 we read a like account:
And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few [same Greek word] who are being saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow [same Greek word] door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ . . . And behold—they who are last will be first, and they who are first will be last.”
Of course this matter of the door being shut by the head of the house, Yahshua, is precisely what we see in Matthew 25:10-13 when the five foolish virgins returned:
“And while they were going away to make the purchase [of oil], the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with Him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ But He answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.”
So, let us now go back to verse 30 of Luke 13—“they who are last will be first, and they who are first will be last.” While this is true in regard to the value of humility and in regarding others as more important than oneself, it has an even more direct application when it comes to the ways of Yahweh concerning the two Remnant works.
Tell me, was the three-part promise given to Moses in Exodus 33:18-23 fulfilled by Moses? No! It was fulfilled instead by Elijah about 600 years later! Read here to understand this. So what we see here is precisely what we read in Luke 13—the last will fulfill the promise given to the first. This could even be said regarding the promises given first to the natural Israelites or Jews, yet they are actually fulfilled in the spiritual Israelites/Jews—the church. And in like regard, the priesthood in Levi later went to Judah (Hebrews 7:11-16). This is even the first and second bird principle of Leviticus 14:4-7—the first dies and the second ascends alive. One could even add: first the natural body, and second the spiritual body. Or, we see this in the promise and hope of Yahshua’s first coming, and then even later the much anticipated and fulfilling second coming. And, this is none-the-less the same principle with the two Remnant. That which is promised at the beginning, is fulfilled with the completing second Remnant.
Having noted this dynamic and highly impacting principle, let us further examine this passage found in Matthew 7:13-14.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is narrow and the way is afflicted that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
First, we know that Matthew prophesies concerning the first Remnant, Mark concerning Christianity, and Luke prophesies concerning the second Remnant. So when we see here these like passages in Matthew and Luke, you know that this is in regard to these two Remnant works. What about Mark? It is the breach that separates the two split Bride works, and this subject matter is not even found there. So, given what we repeatedly saw in the “two-birds” principle/truth, we can rightly say that the first Remnant Matthew 7:13-14 promise will be fulfilled today. And with this being the case, let us now take a closer look at this promise.
First, for 2,000 years we have seen all too well the outcome of the WIDE way of Christianity/the Body of Christ! And affirming this certainty, what has in fact been the end for Christians? The kingdom has led to “destruction”—corruption, perdition, and waste—and in the end is death! But what in fact must we have? The narrow gate, where in the last days God ratchets down on man, sending the Elijah who is “a refiner’s fire and fuller’s soap,” even “a smelter and purifier of silver”! “But who can endure the day of his coming?” (Malachi 3:1-3) And with this ever-narrowing work/way, the Bride will make herself ready for the coming of Immanuel! Purification MUST precede Immanuel!
Let us now take a closer look at this statement regarding the latter days that precede Immanuel’s coming:
“For the gate is narrow and the way is afflicted that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
Think about this: narrow is the gate, afflicted is the way, and it leads to life. Tell me, what did Yahshua describe here? Is this not a description concerning birth? Most certainly! Is the birth canal narrow? It is a miracle that a baby can actually pass though the woman’s birth canal. And, it is affliction for both mother and child, whose skull actually compresses and changes in shape just to be able to get through the much smaller birth canal. And it is only through this narrow, afflicting “gate” that the baby can proceed into life.
So, what was Yahshua undoubtedly referring to when He made this statement, aptly recorded in first Remnant Matthew? But first, I ask you: What is it that you and so many others need? To answer this, we also read in the words of Yahshua: “You must be born from above!” You must be prepared for this birth that will even transform you and bring pressure on you that causes you to be conformed so as to be able to enter into that new life—into an immortal, incorruptible body! Will it be easy and we all just fly away at a moment’s notice as Christians so falsely believe? Not in the least! That baby is going through a narrow way, and for anyone who wants to ascend alive and receive that immortal incorruptible body, you had better know you will first be changed! “For the gate is narrow and the way is afflicted that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” A remnant!
And now knowing this, it brings the second Remnant Luke 13:23-25 passage to much greater light. Again we read:
“Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ “
When the Bride who has made herself ready is caught up at the sound of the last trumpet, that door is thereupon closed for 2,000 more, even 3,000 years! (Click here for more on this.) And the period leading to that next resurrection will indeed be a purification process as well—the lake of fire. If there was ever a “purgatory,” that will be the closest thing to it. Actually though, that word in Latin is: “means of cleansing” or “purge.” And the truth is that before the coming of Immanuel and through the 2,000 years of the lake of fire, there will indeed be that purging/cleansing! But it takes place right here on this earth while men are back in their earthly bodies.
Will we today make it through this narrow and afflicted process? We will. In Matthew 19:16-30, Mark 10:17-31, and Luke 18:18-30 we find the promise for all three parts of the church—first Remnant, Christianity, and second Remnant: “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26, and likewise in the other two gospels). This is the story of the rich young ruler who could not give up everything to follow Yahshua. As he walked away, Yahshua declared, “For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” But we know we will all enter in, each in his own order. It is Yahweh’s design, and all mankind will be saved and enter into His glorious kingdom—first the Bride, then the Body (Christians), and then the rest of mankind (the nations). Again, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” He is merciful and compassionate, and “wills that all men will be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4), and “is the Savior of all men, especially of believers” (1 Timothy 4:10). Yahweh is faithful.
At this time in the affairs of the Father, we look to Him to call out and complete a bride for His Son—“ For the gate is narrow and the way is afflicted that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Thus we read in Isaiah 10:22-23:
For though your people, O Israel, may be like the sand of the sea, a remnant within them will return. A destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness; for a conclusive and decisive accounting will my Lord Yahweh of hosts make within the entire land!
And in Romans 9:28-29 we read a quote or reference from Isaiah 10:23, as well as from 1:9 and 13:19:
For the Lord will execute His word on the earth, [literally] finishing it and cutting it short [10:23]. And just as Isaiah foretold, “Unless the Lord of sabbath had left to us a seed [1:9], we would have become like Sodom, and would have been made like Gomorrah [13:19]!”
This is precisely what we have to have today—for Yahweh to now cut the church short from 3,000 years to 2,000 years and finish the Bride work He began in the first Remnant.
Amen and amen, and may Yahweh be praised,
“Fish On The Other Side”
October 29th 2017 - To begin this report, nothing of significance took place during the Fall Feast period. We desperately need for Yahweh to intervene in the affairs of man and cut time short from three thousand years to two thousand years, which He has promised; and we need for Satan to be bound, and before this to lift up the Mordecai. And of course we must receive the latter rain. So, where are we now in our hope? Is there any hope?
To answer this, I want to tell you a story. And for some, you will already be familiar with it, or at least parts of it. It is lengthy, but as such this makes it all the more noteworthy. And gratefully, at the time of these events I kept a journal.
In July, 1985, I was praying and the Father spoke to me that I was to ask for Rob Farrell’s wealth. Rob was a man I knew from church who was a very successful and wealthy businessman in real estate in the Dallas area. But that was a huge thing to pray, and I could not ask for it unless I knew for certain I was actually hearing this from Him. In fact, I immediately got up off my knees. But the Father spoke to me concerning three things He had told me before and they each came to pass, and He assured me that I could trust Him in this as well. But even then, I needed further clarification. Did He mean that I was to ask specifically for Rob’s wealth, or for wealth equivalent to that of Rob? Immediately, the Father assured me to ask specifically for Rob’s wealth. So, having been assured that I could trust Him in this and gained clarification as to exactly what I was to pray, I knelt down once again and prayed, “Father, give me Rob Farrell’s wealth.”
Very significantly, the Sunday following that prayer I was approached by Rob’s wife, Holly, at church, and they invited me and my family to go to their exotic game ranch outside of Waco, Texas, the following weekend. Obviously I accepted! So, here I had just prayed for Rob’s wealth, and was going to immediately go and enjoy the benefits of it! I do not know how many acres that ranch was, but it was so large I never saw any game fences once I entered it. I know they had a herd of buffalo, as well as a heard of longhorn cattle, and various exotic deer. The home was a large two-story brick exterior with a nice swimming pool. Next to it were the stables for their horses, and at one point we went horseback riding. It also had ponds with fish in them.
But before I tell you more about this, it is noteworthy to tell you about our unique experience in getting there. Our drive from Dallas to Waco was a one-hundred-mile trip. Our vehicle was an older van, and unique to this trip, as we traveled along it soon overheated. I pulled into a station and the water in the radiator was gone. So, I added some stop leak and water and off we continued on our journey. But down the road the overheating reoccurred, and I repeated that process. And finally, when we did arrive, there was the same problem! This time I checked the oil as well, and to my surprise and amazement there was no oil in it! I had to add five quarts of oil to get it up to full. And it had gotten hot enough to boil out three radiators of water! To me, that was very likely a miracle, and most certainly was a meaningful part of a most prophetic set of events!
Let me now share with you yet another most telling and hopeful miracle that took place there. But, I need to share with you something that took place just prior to it. In a December 16, 1990, journal entry, I noted that there was a “difficult and unharmonious” time that I had there. “I had conflicts with Mavis [my wife] and the children. I was actually utterly miserable and at times was very despondent.” And with this experience, I proceeded out to go fishing at one of the ponds.
When I approached the pond, as an experienced fisherman I knew that the best place to fish was directly before me. I could even see the bass down in the clear water, and everything about it told me that there was a good chance to land a bass or two here. But, the Father clearly spoke to me: “Fish on the other side.” I looked at the other side of the pond, and it looked like a terrible place for catching bass. It was shallow and there was nothing there to invite them. So, I chose to fish where I was, and put on a select lure and began to cast away. But with no success, I then used another lure. And with repeated tries, I still got not even a bump. After while I considered that maybe Yahweh knew what He was talking about and walked over to the other side of the pond where I was told to go.
Once again with my lure I made my first cast. Immediately I got my first strike and reeled in my first fish. After putting it on the stringer I made my second cast, and immediately caught my second fish! I reeled it in, put it on the stringer, and made my third cast. Immediately I caught my third fish! Three casts and three fish! I put in on the stringer and made my fourth cast. Immediately I caught my fourth fish! It went on the stringer, and cast number five yielded the same results—five casts and five fish!
But then Yahweh spoke to me again. He said, “That’s enough.” I counted the number of fish I would need to feed my family, and thought I needed one more; so instead I cast a sixth time. But, for the first time I did not get a hit. So, I tried again—no hit. And I tried again and again and again and …, but there was not even a bump. Upon all these unsuccessful tries, I drew the conclusion once again that the Father knew what He was talking about. With this I gathered my fish and proceeded back to the ranch home. As I walked away, my clear thoughts were: “Father, you just performed an indisputable miracle in my life; and of all times to do so, I am MOST unworthy!” I felt like a failure as a father and husband. I returned to the house, cleaned the fish, and that was the exact number we needed for our meal.
Today I look at all of this, tying all of these sovereign events and promises together, and have to ask the question: What was the Father setting forth here? Why did He say to me in July, 1985, to ask for Rob Farrell’s wealth? And more specifically and amazing, I was to ask for Yahweh to take Rob’s wealth and give it to me. And immediately I enjoyed Rob’s wealth at his ranch. And we must ask: What happened to Rob’s massive wealth? In the savings and loan crisis around 1990, Rob lost everything, everything that he had! Even his own home—everything!
After all of this, I called Rob and asked if we could get together. We met on December 16, 1990. I let him read my journal entries documenting everything, and his response was—I hope you are right. He hoped that there would be some good purpose in all that he went through, including almost the loss of his wife. But the reality is, there is a very large sum of money out there that was taken from Rob that belongs to me—money that the Father specifically and clearly told me to ask for. Ecclesiastes 11:1 states: “Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you will find it after many days.” I wait for that wealth—not for myself, but for the kingdom. And the reality is, Judas possessed the moneybox, and that box was given to Satan. Today, that moneybox must go to the fulfilling Elijah.
There is another thing for which I await as well. You will recall that before I went out to fish, I had had a most difficult time with both my wife and my children. Given the like state of my relationship with them today, that seems to be yet another evidence as to the great relevance of that highly prophetic experience. And what else do we see? I drove all the way to that ranch with little and even no oil. Where it went, I will never know. It was a one-time experience. And what do we need today? The anointing oil that breaks the yoke.
And finally, after the Spirit came upon me at the ranch in 1994, I invited Rob and Holly out to share with them these marvelous Bride truths. As I shared them they understood; and when they drove away that night I will never forget Holly’s final words. There was a beautiful full moon out, and she hollered out her window—“Full moon, full light!” Indeed! But unfortunately that light breached with them, just as the money breached—and I await the return of both.
So the question once again is: Is there any hope at this time? Even, what might Yahweh be doing? And even further, does any of this have any relevance to me or to you today? Clearly, Yahweh was prophesying in this. And if there is any relevance, the big question is:
What is it that we are to fish on the other side of?
There is no question that the way of Yahweh is to make a promise, and that promise breach, and then later fulfill the promise. You see this in the Israelites getting into the promised land, and you clearly see it in the church—first Remnant, breach Christianity, and the fulfilling second Remnant. And the fact is, you see this in the last twenty-three years of my life. The promise of the Bride came in 1994, and immediately it breached! And today we need to fish on the other side and receive the miraculous and extraordinarily successful results! Of course this is the message of John 21:6 regarding the one hundred and fifty three fish. But obviously we have to receive all that we need at this time, and we have not received it. Yes, there were incredible results in Africa. But as we saw in the October 4 entry here titled “Africa Report,” it was moreso a first Remnant with an Ananias and Sapphira. And, we had hoped to see that success via Tabernacles; but that too did not give us the success we so desperately need.
So we ask again: On the other side of what? Is it on the other side of these twenty-three years? I knew where it was at that pond, but I do not know where it is here and now. We can’t be that far away from it, and the Father holds His cards very close to His chest. And as we have learned, we see His back—what He has done. But at least we seem to have sight and understanding of what “Fish on the other side” means—fishing on the other side of the breach that began twenty-three years ago. Surely, surely we are close! But we have no other option now than to wait and see.
I close this with the passage from which Yahweh spoke to me when yet another breach was repaired, and that was when our fifth and final child was about to be birthed. (Read here to learn more.) Yes, we found out that that little girl had breached as well. But the Father gave me a promise, and my wife’s contractions stopped and we went to bed and waited. The next morning, on April 1, we discovered that Yahweh had also repaired the breach and that little girl was born that day. Yahweh had miraculously repaired the breach by His grace, so we named her Grace. This is what we have to have today. By His grace the Father needs to repair the breach of the last twenty-three years! So may it be!
That promise given to me then is from Jeremiah 29:10-14, and we read:
“For thus says Yahweh, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares Yahweh, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares Yahweh, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares Yahweh, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’ “
May Yahweh be glorified, and May He repair the breach that has not only been going for twenty-three years, but for two thousand years!
Blessed be His Holy name forever, the name of Yahweh,
PS: A brother upon reading the above noted that Jeremiah 29:10 states, “When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place.” Of course that seventieth year is on the other side of sixty-nine. So what could this mean for me, for us? I do not like the idea of waiting seventy years; but if that is what has to happen, ANYTHING is worth waiting for Yahweh to visit us and fulfill His good word to us, . . .! We will wait and see.
Untying Elijah, pt. 3
October 17th 2017 - This marks the conclusion of this now more clearly understood testimony of the donkey—the Elijah. And in this report we will examine two more, even three, revealing accounts.
First, in 1 Kings 13 we read of a “man of God” from Judah (from which is our priesthood today), and he was sent to prophesy against the altar where Jeroboam was burning incense. After doing so, he was not to return by the way he came, nor drink water or eat bread. But he listened instead to an “old prophet” who lied to him, and went to his house to eat and drink. Then by the word of Yahweh, the old prophet told him that he would die. The old prophet then saddled a donkey for him, and on the way home “a lion met him on the way and killed him, and his body was thrown on the road, with the donkey standing beside it; the lion also was standing beside the body” (vs. 24).
I hate to say this, but this is very reminiscent of what happened to Balaam when Yahweh told him to go, but was then angry with him for going and sought to kill him. But in this particular case the old prophet came and spoke to the man of God and deceived him. So, was he really a prophet of God? He knew exactly what would happen to the disobedient prophet, and he spoke in the name of Yahweh. Furthermore, in verse 20 we read that “the word of Yahweh came to him“ and he declared in truth, “Thus says Yahweh ….” As with Balaam, the deck was equally stacked against the man of God. Why? Prophecy reigns in the Scriptures. And interestingly and uniquely, the man of God was never named—just as the first Remnant was never named/identified until now. Herein you begin to understand who is the man of God.
Furthermore, the donkey provided here by the lying prophet obviously relates to the first Remnant work, of which Judas was indeed a part. Satan of course entered into Judas, which thereafter led to his death. Of course we are advised that “the devil prowls about as a roaring lion seeking whom to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). And in this account in 1 Kings 13, you have the dead prophet; but, the donkey was not killed. Would this not then look to Satan possessing the donkey work? Indeed so. When Satan “killed” Judas, he then possessed the donkey—the office of the Elijah. Again, that is why we see the lion and the donkey remaining alive, while the first unnamed prophet died. But, that donkey has to go from Satan to the Elijah, and that is what we have to have today!
It is interesting that the old lying prophet had stated to the man of God from Judah: “I also am a prophet like you, and an angel spoke to me by the word of Yahweh, saying, ‘Bring him back with you to your house, that he may eat bread and drink water.’ But he lied to him” (vs. 18). And we read, “So he went back with him, and ate bread in his house and drank water.” How many preachers or supposed prophets today claim to speak in the name of “the Lord,” but they are not speaking truth but in fact death? Christianity is Mystery Babylon confusion. And it was in fact designed to be this way, just as this testimony evidences/prophesies. What else can one expect when Satan is its head? And for two thousand years those swine have all gone to the sea of death. Why? Because they don’t chew the cud. They have the split hoof, the rights to the kingdom, but they cannot ascend and descend and know the mind of God. They are Babylonian confusion with their twenty-five to thirty-five thousand denominations and sects. So, are those the prophets you want to listen to, or the shepherds you want to follow? They are the “old prophet” people have been listening to for two thousand years!
In fact we see this two-thousand-year duration evidenced in this testimony. We read that the old prophet saddled his donkey and went and got the body of the man of God and buried it. He then declared, “When I die, bury me in the grave in which the man of God is buried; lay my bones beside his bones.” So that grave will be occupied by two prophets, even the two thousand years of the church.
Our next account regarding the donkey is concerning Saul, who became king. Of course here once again we see Christianity. In 1 Samuel 9, he was out looking for his father’s donkeys. He did not find them, but Samuel revealed to him: “As for your donkeys which were lost three days ago, do not set your mind on them, for they have been found” (vs. 20). Here again we find the donkeys related to the three thousand years of the church. And there is a testimony once again as to how those years are divided. In chapter 10, there were three men walking down the road toward Saul, and they had three loaves of bread, of which they gave Saul two (vs. 3-4). And of course King Saul and the apostle Saul/Paul were both early, before the time, thereby assuring that the kingdom of God would be corrupted and have to be cut short from three thousand years to two thousand. Oh the wonder of God’s prophecy concealed in riddles!
And what about those donkeys Saul searched for that appropriately started this entire prophetic testimony? Of course it is most fitting and prophetic that Saul never found his father’s donkeys. Why? Because Saul Christianity is not the Elijah! His searching for them led to exactly that for which he was foreordained—to be a type of the Body of Christ. But those donkeys were found by someone else, and they look to the second Remnant Elijah and company who prepare the way for Immanuel! Blessed be Yahweh!
And one final noteworthy item is that Samson’s bonds were broken and he killed one thousand men with a fresh jawbone of a donkey. And there he thirsted and “God split the hollow place that is in Lehi so that water came out” (Judges 15:15-19). That is what we need now in this third and final one-thousand-year period—being loosed from that which binds us, our enemies destroyed by the jawbone of a donkey, and receive water that quenches our thirst and preserves us alive! Amen!
You will want to reread and study this in order to better understand it.
Blessings to all,
PS: Let me add one more testimony that was pointed out just before posting this.
In Part 2, we examined the amazingly prophetic testimony regarding Balaam. And here we see a like testimony regarding the man of God and the old prophet. In both of these, one is sent by Yahweh; and then as he goes, death is either averted or it in fact comes about. Let us briefly consider yet a third like pattern/testimony.
In Exodus 4:19-20 we read:
Now Yahweh said to Moses in Midian, “Go back to Egypt, for all the men who were seeking your life are dead.” So Moses took his wife and his sons and mounted them on a donkey, and returned to the land of Egypt. Moses also took the staff of God in his hand.
Here again we have a command by Yahweh, a donkey, and a rod. And, after obeying and proceeding forward, the deck is once again stacked! We read in verse 24: “Now it came about at the lodging place on the way that Yahweh met him [Moses] and sought to put him to death.” Put him to death? Why? Like Balaam he was obeying. Again, it is prophecy. It is the church for two thousand years.
Then in verses 25-26 we read: “Then Zipporah took a flint and cut off her son’s foreskin and threw it at Moses’s feet, and she said, ‘You are indeed a bridegroom of blood to me.’ So He let him alone. At that time she said, ‘You are a bridegroom of blood’—because of the circumcision.” Is the first Remnant Moses work sufficient? Not at all. It was the Leviticus 14 first-bird work that had to be slain. What has to come now is the second bird, the fulfilling Elijah work, the prophet like Moses.
As addressed here, there was one person in this account of whom it could be said that he was like Moses—his son whom Zipporah circumcised. And as addressed in the above links, it is the Elijah work today that will avert Yahweh’s plan to destroy the Moses work. And, we see once again its identity with the donkey. Thus, the Father has provided not just two, but three like parables/witnesses to this wonderful truth regarding the kingdom (2 Corinthians 13:1).
Untying Elijah, pt. 2
October 15th 2017 - We have seen in “Untying Elijah” the three donkeys of: Judas, then Satan, and then the fulfilling Elijah. There is another donkey we need to address here which is equally profound in testimony, and that is Ishmael. In Genesis 16:12 we read concerning him:
“He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone, and everyone’s hand will be against him.
How would you like to have that as a birth announcement, or even as a prophecy about your life? We see here yet another donkey; but, this one is distinctly “wild,” and thus most certainly cannot be ridden. And as such, there is no way this testimony can speak to either Judas or the fulfilling Elijah—or even to the first Remnant or the fulfilling second Remnant. So, who or what is the fulfillment of the “wild donkey”?
Of course if you look at the three donkeys addressed in “Untying Elijah,” the donkey that would most match this would be Satan. But, Ishmael never prophesies of Satan. Also, he is a brother to Isaac and an offspring of Abraham, so Satan is out of the question in this prophetic type. Therefore, who then is this wild donkey?
In How To Untie A Donkey, page 4, it is clearly concluded and stated: “Once again we see Christianity as not only the corrupted choice vine, but also as the Ishmael Pentecost wild donkey in the wilderness.” As reexamined in “Untying Elijah,” we now see that the donkey is not a type of Pentecost per se, but is in fact the three-part Elijah work of Judas, Satan, and the latter day Elijah. So then who or what is this Ishmael wild donkey? As we see here, clearly it is Christianity, the fruit of “Abraham.” Of course Isaac is the Bride. These two brothers are these two works within the church. So we rightly ask: Can Christianity bring Yahshua back to this earth—Immanuel? Absolutely not! Christianity is a wild donkey that is not broken and cannot be ridden. And the fact is as well, as we have seen, Christianity is the “degenerate shoots of a foreign vine” (Jeremiah 2:21-22).
None of this Ishmael work portends to offer a solution in bringing Immanuel. The only solution then is to put the Body of Christ to sleep, open its side, take out a rib (the twelfth apostle), and with/from it form the Bride which is impregnated by the Holy Spirit latter rain, and she births Immanuel back to this earth! Apart from this, there will be NO Immanuel! Apart from this there will be NO Zechariah 13:8-9 where the 2,000 years of death will cease and the third part be refined and tested, and it is then declared “They are My People!” Apart from this there will be NO Hosea 6 where after 2,000 years of being torn and wounded and dying, on the third “day” He heals and bandages and revives us and we stand before Him! Only, only through the Bride can kingdom man, even mankind, be saved and delivered!
Thus we see that the wild donkey is Christianity. But what do we see testified otherwise in the Scriptures regarding the donkey? What else do they evidence? Let us here examine Balaam and his donkey. And get ready, you’re going to see some absolutely amazing truth and testimony that has never before been seen, and certainly not understood. This account is nothing less than a parable, a profound living testimony of what the Father is performing in the church.
In Numbers 22, we find the account regarding Balaam and his donkey. Briefly, the King of Moab beckoned Balaam to come and curse the Israelites. On Balaam’s way there, three times an angel prepared to kill Balaam with a sword. The first time was in a field, and the donkey went into the field around him. Balaam thereupon struck the donkey with a rod. The second time was in a narrow path through, none other than, a vineyard. Here again we see the testimony of the church—the vineyard. Here the donkey pressed close to a wall to avoid the angel, crushing Balaam’s foot (kingdom rights). Again Balaam struck the donkey with a rod. Then the third place was too narrow to avoid the angel and his sword, so the donkey laid down. And once again Balaam struck his donkey with a rod. Here again we see the testimony of the church, as well as its three parts. And what would happen to the church if it got the third part? It would be UTTER destruction! So, what does the church need today so as to avoid certain death by the sword? The talking donkey! The Elijah. And as we see in this living prophecy, Yahweh indeed provides that unique donkey.
Most importantly, let us keep in mind as well what the angel had in his hand in Genesis 3:24 in order to keep Adam and Eve from reentering the Garden. Indeed, it was a flaming sword! This must be parallel to what we see with Balaam. And in that original garden, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil had been cursed to be a vine and crawl on its belly like Satan. Folks, God has to do something like unto what we see here with Balaam and allow us to escape death, get back into the Garden, and eat from the tree of life! And the reality is we have to ascend alive and get out of these earthly bodies! Amen!
It is most interesting in this account that Balaam’s heart was continually to do only the will of Yahweh. When Balak’s messengers first came to him and told him of the king’s request, he sought Yahweh and the answer was “No.” And even when they returned and offered him riches, he reaffirmed that he “could not do anything, either small or great, contrary to the command of Yahweh.” Yahweh came to him in the night and said to him, “If the men have come to call you, rise up and go with them; but only the word which I speak to you shall you do.”
So what’s wrong with that? Seemingly nothing. But one verse later we read to the contrary: “But God was angry because he [Balaam] was going, and the angel of Yahweh took his stand in the way as an adversary against him.” And you know the rest of it.
Let’s try to put this in perspective with the church, which this is about. Are there Christians who, like Balaam, are entirely sincere and want to do only the will of Yahweh God? Absolutely! This is hard to grasp, except in seeing it through this living testimony, but if I may say—the deck is stacked against them and they are certain to fail, just as did Balaam. Think about it—Yahshua came too early, and the kingdom was destined to failure! How is one going to succeed when there is a kingdom destined to failure, whose head is Satan? There is no difference between Balaam being sent out by the word of Yahweh and then Yahweh seeking to kill him, than what has been the case with kingdom man for two thousand years. Peter and the apostles failed right off the bat with Mathias. Do you think it has been any different since then? Absolutely not! The sad fact is, God sovereignly started the church, and kingdom men have been killed ever since.
Believers have been riding on Balaam’s donkey for two thousand years, or the two times when the donkey kept Balaam from being killed by the sword of the angel. And all that those years have done is take them into the vineyard, and into an inescapably narrow passageway and their kingdom rights are being crushed! Today, that angel is standing there and is ready to put an end to our continuation. The question is whether God will cut time short and give us another one thousand years in the Millennial Reign. And the only way that is even possible, thereby averting death, is for the donkey to finally speak! And, I hope that donkey is speaking right now, seeing things that no other man has seen since creation, things that have even been hidden from the church for two thousand years. Again, God agreed to the journey, but He has been killing kingdom-possessing men ever since.
And may I say, I have been beaten with a rod many times by Christians—particularly with regard to my family. I’ve warned them and others associated with them, but they like to take that rod out and beat me—denying that I have a right to rule as the head of my home, turning my family against me and cutting them off from me, teaching them lies. They don’t want to see their fate; they just want to beat the donkey! Their eyes are blinded, as were Balaam’s; and they refuse to accept the sight of the donkey, who sees things they do not see. They, and the host of Christianity, do not see that they face certain and ongoing death! My God, my God, why have you forsaken them?
But Yahweh willing, this donkey is not going to go any further, and their blinded eyes will be opened to see. The angel even says in that account: “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out as an adversary, because your way was contrary to me. But the donkey saw me and turned aside from me these three times. If she had not turned aside from me, I would surely have killed you just now, and let her live” (vss. 32-33). I do not worry about the donkey, but about those who do not see all things clearly—whose ways are contrary to Yahshua.
At the beginning of this third part of the church that we now face, we will continue to die unless Yahweh has mercy and gives us access to the tree of life and we never die! Again, in that original garden the tree of the knowledge of good and evil had been cursed to be a vine and crawl on its belly like Satan. God has to do something like unto what we see here with Balaam and allow us to get back into the Garden and eat from the tree of life, escaping death! And the reality is, to do this we have to ascend alive and get out of these earthly bodies! Pray for that mercy.
A third report on this subject will follow.
Untying Elijah, pt. 1
October 10th 2017 - In the last report, we saw for the first time that the donkey in the accounts regarding Yahshua’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem is in type the Elijah. Of course this makes perfect sense in that it is the Elijah who prepares the way for Him. But let’s take this time together to examine this further. There is clear, unmistakable evidence that what we are seeing is in fact true.
To begin with, it is most interesting and extremely significant that in the Law, Exodus 13:13 and 34:20 instruct:
“But every first offspring of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb, but if you do not redeem it, then you shall break its neck.”
Judas Iscariot was in fact the first offspring of the Elijah donkey. Click here to understand more about this placement and order. So the question that demands to be asked here is: Did the Lamb redeem the first offspring of the Elijah donkey? Obviously not! What took place was that Judas, as the Elijah, in the most direct way possible “prepared the way” for Yahshua to go to the cross. And how did He do so? Clearly, by virtue of his betrayal!
So, what was the outcome of this act? Judas then went out and hanged himself (recorded only in first Remnant Matthew, 27:5). And Acts 1:18 tells us that in this hanging he fell headlong, or forward. Combining these two accounts, this is otherwise called “drop hanging”; and the fact is that this does indeed break one’s neck. Therefore, we see that in accordance with the Law, this is precisely what happened to this firstborn donkey who went out and hanged himself—his neck would have been broken. And of course this was followed by the redemptive work of the Lamb.
So we see here clear evidence that Judas was indeed the first Elijah work of the donkey. By turning Yahshua over to the Jews, in a most remarkable way he indeed prepared the way for His death. And note here as well, John the Baptist attests to what the Elijah work truly is. He too prepared the way for Yahshua’s first work by baptizing Him—death, burial, and resurrection! All three of these parts are essential; and as the first donkey Judas began the first part of that Elijah work by preparing the way for His death. And as you can read here, the Elijah baptism is: death by Judas, burial by Satan, and resurrection by the work of the latter donkey, the fulfilling Elijah. And most gratefully, the neck of this latter donkey need not be broken! Today, we desperately need this donkey that prepares the way for Yahshua’s return as King of kings, and Lord of lords! Amen!
Most certainly we are desperate for the fulfillment of this concluding donkey! But, we see here that Satan had to keep that office alive so as to transfer it to the fulfilling Elijah. So, is there any evidence that Satan is identified as well as a donkey? Indeed so! Let us examine this.
First, we see in Genesis 49:9-12 the vital testimony of Judah, and in it we find a like and relevant reference to this Elijah work: “He ties his foal to the vine, and his donkey’s colt to the choice vine.” You can read more about this here. And then one verse later we read in verses 14-15 concerning Issachar:
“Issachar is a strong donkey, lying down among the sheepfolds. When he saw that a resting place was good and that the land was pleasant, he bowed his shoulder to bear burdens, and became a slave at forced labor.”
First, the phrase “lying down among” is often translated “lying down between,” but that is not correct. The Hebrew word there can be translated either way. But evidenced by the identical Hebrew phrase in Judges 5:16, we see the accurate translation: “Why did you sit among the sheepfolds?” Why is this distinction important here? Because the strong donkey is strong Satan, who has laid down among the sheep, Christians, for two thousand years! But what will be his outcome? As written here, with the great white throne judgment he will bow his shoulder to bear burdens and become a slave at forced labor! As he sowed, so he will reap! He has made men slaves of sin, and he will have to become a slave to man! So, clearly testified by the donkey, once again we see this office of the Elijah being given first to Judas, then to Satan, and it now has to go to the fulfilling Elijah who will effect the coming of Immanuel. If you want to know what will bring Immanuel, all you have to do is follow the donkey, even the colt!
Furthermore, it is most significant that Satan is identified with Issachar. Why? Because this is one of the meanings of Judas Iscariot’s name. There is debate as to from what the name “Iscariot” comes, and thus its meaning. Some say it means “man of Issachar,” the tribe; and others say it means “man of Kerioth,” which is in Judah. When you examine the prophecy of Issachar, yes, Satan is a strong donkey. And when you examine the prophecy of Judah, yes, this is in fact the priesthood we have had for two thousand years. But, the young donkey, the foal, MUST be released/untied from it! Why? Because the vine, Christianity, is totally defiled and corrupted!
In Genesis 49:11 we read concerning Judah: “He ties his foal to the vine, and his donkey’s colt to the choice vine.” Who or what is the “choice vine”? There is no question it is Yahshua, who began this priesthood we have in Judah. In Hebrews 7:11-14 we read:
Now if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the Law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaron? For when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also. For the one concerning whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no one has officiated at the altar. For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah, a tribe with reference to which Moses spoke nothing concerning priests.
But, what happened to this choice vine, the church, for the last two thousand years? Jeremiah 2:21-22 specifically tells us:
“Yet I planted you a choice vine, a completely faithful seed. How then have you turned yourself before Me into the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine? Although you wash yourself with lye and use much soap, the stain of your iniquity is before Me,” declares the Lord Yahweh.
This is Christianity—the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine! And if you do not see the evidence of this, you are entirely blind!
So, what is this third and final donkey that has to be untied and released so as to be able to bring the triumphal return of Immanuel? It is the Elijah, a man. Not a company, but a man. Judas Iscariot was a man. Satan was a solitary fallen being. And today, there has to be a man who is the fulfilling Elijah.
The writing, How To Untie A Donkey, and other like writings at Remnant Bride, have sought to search the depths of how to receive the latter rain. But after all of this searching, it is clear that the donkey is not the latter rain per se, but the untying of the Elijah. And the fact is, that donkey was untied twenty-three years ago when on August 7, 1994, I came out of Christianity, out of “the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine.” I was loosed! So, why have we not yet received the latter rain? Because it has not yet been the time. I too came early, before the time, and I have had to wait until the fullness of time. And as I mentioned in the preceding report, this is now the conclusion of my second twenty-three-year period, for a total of forty-six years; and I trust the temple is now complete and the way for Immanuel can be fully prepared.
And the reality is, we all have to be untied as the Elijah company and escape “the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine”—Christianity! The seeds are sown and the Elijah becomes a company that cannot be numbered! And we look to the Father to perform and complete this work.
There is more to share, but sufficient it is for this report.
October 6th 2017 - On October 3, I was wondering what the significance was to the last forty-six years in my life—the sum of the last two twenty-threes. I knew that in John 2:20, the Jews said to Yahshua: “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” Even so, I had no clear understanding of this; and frankly, I do not try to noodle things. So, I dropped it. The next day, Peter Douglas (who came into the Bride in the first month of 2001) called me and explained something that he was seeing. Let me share it with you.
In that account in John 2, Yahshua had just cast the moneychangers out of the temple. Of course, already we know that this is going to be prophetic, for this event actually occurs three separate times in the Scriptures as a contradiction riddle, a parable. And that parable relates specifically to the cleansing of the Bride (Matthew and Luke) versus the cleansing of the Body of Christ (Mark). Then, in this case in John, it relates to the cleansing of the kingdom of God, which takes place with the establishment of the second Remnant.
With this clear timing established here in kingdom John, what is the testimony that follows in John 2? Picking up in verse 17 we read:
“His [Yahshua’s] disciples remembered that it was written, ‘ZEAL FOR YOUR HOUSE WILL CONSUME ME.’ The Jews then said to Him, ‘What sign do You show us as your authority for doing these things?’ ”
Keep in mind here, this relates specifically to today, the time in which this is to be fulfilled. Continuing:
“Jesus answered them, ‘Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’ ”
And again, this is when the Jews replied: “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”
With this understanding, let me tell you what Peter related to me. He said, it took forty-six years to build the temple, and for forty-six years God has been building you in your walk with Him. (The first twenty-three years I did not walk with Him.) He said that the Bible tells us that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and He has been building this temple in me for this time period. I can accept this, for several years ago Yahweh told me: “I’m not running a business, I’m building a man.” This being the case, this building of the temple would now be complete. Of course that former natural temple was later torn down, and Yahshua Himself laid down His life as well, as He spoke of here. But there are some things about this passage that are most interesting and significant.
Verse 21 tells us that Yahshua was speaking of His own body when He answered them. But let me tell you, there are parables that are at play here as well. First, it can be argued from the Scriptures concerning three days in the grave, or two days in the grave, the latter most Christians ascribe to. So which one is it? The fact is, this is a parable.
In Romans 9:27-29, Paul quotes from the Old Testament, presenting a vital truth that will be fulfilled in this day. Here we read:
“Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, ‘THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL BE LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, IT IS THE REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED; FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, FINISHING IT AND CUTTING IT SHORT.’ And just as Isaiah foretold, ‘UNLESS THE LORD OF SABBATH HAD LEFT TO US A POSTERITY, WE WOULD HAVE BECOME LIKE SODOM, AND WOULD HAVE RESEMBLED GOMORRAH.’ ”
Paul was writing about the Gentiles and Israel, but this account specifically applies to Christianity and the Bride that comes out of it. Also, the underlined portions here are literal from the Greek, which the New American Standard only noted this in the margin. But this difference is absolutely critical! This “remnant” that must be saved is in fact the Remnant Bride that has to come out of the sleeping Body of Christ. And as it literally states here, the existing church age is “cut short” from three thousand years to two thousand years, ending the work of the church as we have known it! And you can be MOST assured, the church has been and is today nothing short of corrupt Sodom and Gomorrah, and fully deserves to be consumed by God’s fire!
So, even though Yahshua said here three days, and in fact such it was with Him, this CANNOT be the case for Christianity. Also, when Yahshua is recorded saying, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up,” the word “destroy” literally means “to loose, release, or untie.” For example, in Luke 19:30 Yahshua instructs, “Go into the village ahead of you; there, as you enter, you will find a colt tied on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here.” This is the same Greek word, as well as when sandals were untied. Therefore, let’s take its literal meaning and restate this verse:
“Release/loose this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
Folks, what I need right now is for Yahweh to untie, to release, to loose this donkey, this man, this temple of the Holy Spirit completed after forty-six years, and perform a work that will provide the way for Immanuel to come to this earth!
In past writings I have assumed that the donkey represents the Hole Spirit, but I do not see that to be the case anymore. The only reason I have previously said this is because that is what Steve Jones has taught, and I have not known otherwise. But now I see it is not the case. The donkey is the Elijah, both the former and the latter, Judas and the end-time fulfilling Elijah. This is why we find the two donkeys—the donkey and the colt—ridden in first Remnant Matthew 21:7. It prophesies of the one to come, the colt. The donkey colt, the Elijah, MUST be untied in order for Yahshua to be brought back to this earth to rule and reign. There is an entire writing dedicated to this great need titled How To Untie A Donkey. And hopefully the release of this donkey will now come at the completion of these forty-six years!
What has to happen is that, indeed, for the sake of the Remnant time must be cut short from three “days” to two—3,000 years to 2,000 years. This temple that has been under construction for forty-six long years needs to be fully put into service. This donkey colt needs to be untied so that Immanuel can be brought into Jerusalem, being heralded as King! The Holy Spirit of the latter rain must come to prepare the crop for the last days harvest. And the Bride must make herself ready.
Preparing the way for the coming of Immanuel through the Bride is absolutely essential! There is the chosen donkey who bears the Son of God, as well as those who lay down their palm branches and garments and herald the coming of the King. It is in and through these works that the Son of God returns back to this earth so as to rule over the whole of mankind as King of kings, and Lord of lords! Amen and amen!
Come quickly Yahshua, and have Your way in our lives, that You may be glorified!
We look to the Father,
PS: “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Oh for the tree of life!
October 4th 2017 - I am going to tell you why I removed the Africa Report. It is a sad account and required the action that I took. And when the decision was made, it also became very clear what was taking place in the spiritual. But before I tell you the specifics, let me briefly share with you a truth from the Scriptures regarding the ways of Yahweh.
We know that the Bible prophesies, and does so even in and through the affairs of man, even through individual men. Therein, their lives and actions were ordained. The affairs of man are not a collection of random and haphazard actions and events, but are in fact living prophecy. This is true throughout all of history, but is especially so when recorded in the Scriptures. That which has been is that which will be. And equally, just as God’s creation is both good and evil, so we are told that He makes some vessels for honorable use and some for dishonorable use (2 Timothy 2:20, Romans 9:21). This is seen throughout the Bible.
Who would like to have been Judas? But he was created for the very purpose that the Scriptures might be fulfilled. Satan was given the right to enter into him and he betrayed Yahshua for thirty pieces of silver. And how about Peter? As a testimony of the three thousand years of the church, he denied Yahshua three times. Or how about King Saul? It was inevitable that he too as a premature work was to fail. And in like regard, he was held accountable for his actions and lost his right to be king. On and on throughout the entirety of the Scriptures men’s lives and actions have prophesied by sovereign design and purpose. And this is no less true today.
Having noted this, let’s look at what is at hand. The Africa Report was removed because the photos Caleb provided me for the Rongo meeting were all false, taken from photos already on the internet from political gatherings. And, this was the case with Walter’s photo as well, along with several of his previous photos. This was obviously very disturbing, and I have notified them that the support is being discontinued. Personally, I do not believe that the meetings and events were being manufactured. It was too much of a living work. But I do suspect that the sizes of the meetings were being exaggerated to some degree. Whatever the case though, at this time I have ceased our financial support. And I have to ask myself: Why did all of this happen?
From my personal experience of teaching in Africa for three months and experiencing 100% success in the meetings, and knowing the zeal and passion of those with whom I left the work, I do believe that that success has continued all across the continent. Again, what continued was a living and breathing experience. So, in Yahweh’s design, what was the purpose of this work, and why is it that Caleb and Walter are only now being exposed? I waited on Yahweh for understanding, and do believe He gave it to me. Let me now explain.
I have noted that the Africa work is in type a first Remnant work. The first Remnant was early, before the time, as was in fact the entirety of the church up to now. Again, it is a King Saul work who was equally before the time. And in like manner the Africa work is early. We have not yet received the latter rain. And, it is solely an Africa work, and not widespread among all the nations. And of course as a work in Africa, upon whose image is Satan, there is the testimony that he is still loose (which is of course an obvious reality). Given this, the Africa work seemed destined to attest to corruption—and so it now has done with what we see with Caleb and Walter. But let’s take this even one confirming step further.
When I first saw the certainty of the deceptive actions of Caleb and Walter, I immediately contacted by phone or email those who have been consistent significant financial supports of this work. And most gratefully, they were all gracious and understanding, and grateful for my openness and forthrightness in this matter. I am a firm believer in walking in the light. There is no other way—which is one reason I was so distraught with the deception which Caleb and Walter performed. And most revealing, from this contact one message became clear. Let me explain.
First, on October 1, the Hebrew’s Day of Atonement, I received an email from a faithful brother from Australia in response to this finding, and included this assessment: “What comes to my mind is what you have said a while ago about the Africa work being a 1st Remnant work as they are identifying with them. It would seem that they might be identifying even with the corruption that took place with the 1st Remnant in the beginning?” After reading his response, I called another brother here in the States to explain what is going on with the Africa work. He was not aware of what the other brother said, and upon me telling him about what Caleb and Walter did, his reply was that this sounded like Ananias and Sapphira. The reason he said this was that what Caleb and Walter did was a fearful act in the order of those two. It was not until afterwards that I put both of these together so as to understand what it seems the Father was attesting—that as a first Remnant work, so the Africa work is equally corrupted. And then even further in that day, yet a third brother independently introduced the same regarding Ananias and Sapphira. This is of course the mandate of 2 Corinthians 13:1 and Deuteronomy 19:15: “On the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.” And most certainly confirmed it was!
And then even later, I saw even more affirming evidence related to this conclusion. In the words of Peter, what did Ananias and Sapphira do? They kept some of the money from the sale of their property and lied to the Holy Spirit, to God. And most noteworthy, though they were husband and wife, they came before the apostles three hours apart. What do we see prophesied here? The church was to get three thousand years (three hours apart), but of course they will get two. Clearly, the reason this most unique testimony was added to the Bible here was to prophesy. Ananias and Sapphira were prophetic testimonies at the outset of the church—that the first Remnant and the Body of Christ would fail! And regrettably, so they have!
And, the event with Ananias and Sapphira has been repeated in the first Remnant work of Africa. Just as there were the two witnesses of Ananias and Sapphira, so today Caleb and Walter are two witnesses of the same magnitude and purpose. From the beginning of this matter I have been amazed that both of these men are being exposed at the same time with their lying photos. And lying is exactly the sin of Ananias and Sapphira. And frankly, I’m sure Ananias and Sapphira were wonderful people, just as Caleb and Walter most certainly are. But both pairs failed in the weakness of their flesh. Living-prophecy can be a fearful thing!
What could this be telling us? While Caleb and Walter’s actions are inexcusable and have severely eroded my confidence and trust in them, I still look to the Father to complete His work at this time and give us the victorious and fulfilling second Bride work. Listen, if you think what Caleb and Walter did was corrupt, all you have to do is look at the church in the last two thousand years and you will see its own like corruption and even deception. What these two men did was no exception to the church whole—which is indeed “Africa,” where Satan has been its head! And if God does not come and expose this great error (as He sovereignly did with Ananias and Sapphira, and now with Caleb and Walter), cut time short, and perform a great cleansing through the Elijah work that is a refiner’s fire and fuller’s soap (Malachi 3:1-4), it will indeed be “My God, my God, why have you forsaken us?”
Caleb and Walter in cursed Africa evidenced not only the corruption of the first Remnant, but indeed the corruption of the entirety of the church from its beginning. What will I do with them at this point? I have already told them that I cannot help them; but I also have to wait and see what the Father will do in the days before us. This is not just about Africa. In fact, this is not just about any of what we see today. The fact is we MUST have the fulfillment of the latter Bride! We MUST have the latter rain that will impregnate us, and only then birth Immanuel back to this earth! And from what I see at this time, and considering the evidence of three twenty-threes in my life, something needs to happen now. And all I personally know to do is to take one day at a time, be faithful to what is at hand, and look to see Yahweh’s back as He passes by before us. The reality is, this is all entirely in His hands; and if He does not move, there is truly nothing we can do.
May God have mercy.
October 1th 2017 - We are taking a break from the regular “Africa Report” to bring you a special report concerning this month of October, 2017. This first report will have personal information about my life and otherwise that is relevant to what we hope for in the month of October.
First, October is filled with both the Hebrew Calendar and the New Millennial Calendar fall feasts. We will stay just with October, though the Hebrew Calendar’s Trumpets was on September 22. And what I will share here you might want to write down on a calendar to see it better.
What we have is the Hebrew Atonement on October 1, and their Tabernacles begins on the 6th. This is an eight-day feast, so it ends on the 13th. Now, let’s look at the New Millennial Calendar (NMC). This calendar is based on the full moon as the first of the month, while the Hebrew Calendar is based on the new moon as the first. Therefore, these two calendars are always going to be about a half a month different in sequence. For example, their Trumpets began the month on September 22, and the NMC began the month on Trumpets, October 5. Continuing forward in the NMC, Atonement is the 14th, and Tabernacles begins on the 19th and runs though the final great eighth day on the 26th.
I find it interesting that our Trumpets begins on the 5th, then on the 6th begins the Hebrew Tabernacles, which is completed on the 13th; then on the 14th is our Atonement. Do you see that the Hebrew’s Tabernacles is snugly fixed precisely between our Trumpets and Atonement? And of course the 8th day of Tabernacles is the very day when Yahshua stood in the Temple and declared: “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” Then it adds, “But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified” (John 7:37-39).
This is our hope today. With Yahshua’s crucifixion on Passover, and the former rain of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, these two feasts are already fulfilled. But, the feast of Tabernacles is indeed the feast that is yet to be fulfilled. Yahweh has proven that He operates off of His feasts, so there is every reason to watch for something at this time. And to add to this, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon those gathered in the house of Cornelius “just as it did upon [them] at the beginning” (Acts 11:15), needs to be fulfilled today. This “at the beginning” passage was clearly in reference to the former rain on the day of Pentecost. And “Cornelius” means “trumpet.” Therefore, this is the outpouring we MUST have today! Without it, there will be no coming of Immanuel.
The former rain marked the beginning of the church, and more specifically it is the Bride work of the first Remnant. This first rain was the “shemen,” the oil of the Holy Spirit, which impregnated the Leah Bride and brought forth the Body of Christ. Today, we MUST likewise have the like outpouring of the Spirit, the shemen. Why? So that the beloved Rachel Bride can now be impregnated, and only then “birth” Immanuel back to this earth. Do you see this? It is the only way for the Bride to be able to prepare the way for the triumphal coming of the King of kings. The masculine Body of Christ cannot effect this. As a male Adam work, it too must be put to sleep, its side must be opened, a rib must be taken out, and from it the Bride is formed! “That which has been is that which will be!” We must have this fulfillment! Otherwise, it will be “My God, my God, why have You forsaken us?”
Now for more information, this time relative to my own life. On the Remnant Bride podcast page, there are three podcasts titled “23—23—23.” There you will learn that my life has thus far been ordered in three segments of time based on twenty-three years each. And each segment thus far has been concluded by a life-changing event!
I was born in 1948, and twenty-three years later my life was dramatically transformed when I began my walk with Yahshua. Then twenty-three years later, in 1994 I was once again dramatically transformed when the Father revealed to me the essential truth of the Bride that must come out of the sleeping Body of Christ. And today, in 2017, twenty-three years later, now for a total of sixty-nine years, I must, I MUST have yet a third and final fulfillment! And with everything now coming down to this Tabernacles feast period, I have little hope for it beyond that.
Let me tell you a like account as to where I am today. And the fact is, I have been here before. In 2003, several of us with the Bride gathered in my home in Enumclaw, Washington, for a Passover-through-Pentecost gathering, holding all things in common and hoping to receive the latter rain. (We were still looking to a Passover Pentecost for that fulfillment, which would never and could never come.) After Pentecost, everyone went back to their respective homes. And let me add, before they came, my wife left me, along with our two youngest daughters. And not just that—she took all of our home furnishings and belongings, and she has never returned.
Needless to say, I was devastated by all of this—so much so that in the days that followed I began to plan a path of self-destruction! Frankly, my plan was to get in my pickup; drive to Colorado Springs, Colorado; go fishing; find a woman who would lay with me until I ran out of money; and then drive to Dallas, Texas, and live with the homeless in downtown Dallas where for three years I had once been a part of a ministry that fed the homeless there. I didn’t care anymore.
But with this self-destructive plan, I also prayed to God to “keep me from going fishing.” And He did. In October, 2003, one of the brothers who had held all things in common called me and asked me if I would come to New York and help him get a house ready to sell and it needed a lot of work. Would I! You bet I would! That was salvation! It was my much-needed answer to a desperate prayer! During the drive I experienced three panic attacks, which I had never had before in my life, and hope to never have again. They are MOST fearful! Upon completing the work there I returned home and dealt with a legal separation my wife had filed and finally got it dropped. Victory!
Why do I share all of this? Because here I am, fourteen years later, once again in October, and once again desperately in need for God to hear and answer my prayer with fulfillment. Frankly, without the fulfillment I need, things do not look good for me after 2017, anymore than the way they looked in 2003 when I was gong to go fishing, etc. I prayed then for deliverance; and my back is once again against the wall and I need God to keep me from doing wrong. This is at the end of my third and final period of twenty-three years, and if God does not move, the future for me personally is equally bleak.
I’ll be very honest with you—my wife has been gone for fourteen years. In 2003 I was going to go and lay with a woman; and today if nothing happens, I am faced with the same temptation—but it would be to remarry. I’m an honest person, and I cannot see continuing to live alone as I have for fourteen years. As the Father Himself concluded in the Garden, “It is not good for the man to be alone.” Well, it’s not good for Gary to be alone. And frankly, it’s not good for Yahshua to be alone. We’re in the same fix, and I hope He will fix it for both of us, and for me without sin.
Once again I need God to keep me from “going fishing.” But this time, I need for Him to make me a fisher of men, wherein hopefully we will catch the 153 fish on the right side of the boat. In 2003 I asked God to keep me from going fishing. Today, I am asking Him to send me out fishing! And I hope once again He hears my prayer.
I suggest you reread this so that you can more fully comprehend it; and we look to the Father to fulfill His word—providing His Son a bride, the Bride that comes out of the sleeping Body of Christ!
There will be more to come on this new page as this tenth month of October unfolds. We watch and hope for good.
