This brings us to a matter that is a continuation of Return of the Raven. We have already mentioned here the soul work of the twenty-four elders around the throne, and have briefly mentioned the twelfth apostle which is the rib taken out of the body of Christ in order to form the Bride, the soul work.
What we will consider here in this section is (1) a closer look at the promise of this twelfth apostle, and (2) an examination of this office as it relates to the money box. In the last writing we noted the incredible quality of movies in propounding riddles/parables. We will begin our consideration of the twelfth apostle by looking at one of these riddles/parables; but first, let us say something here regarding this office.
These things regarding the office of the twelfth apostle are presented in order to reveal the critical governmental order that must be established so as to restore all things. We must understand government in order to know how the kingdom has been corrupted, what must take place in order to legally stop Satan, and what specific government must be established in these days. This writer writes what Yahweh reveals, and much of what He is showing him at this time is pertaining to this critical office of the twelfth apostle. Without that office, truth will remain in darkness, Satan will continue to rule, a Bride will never be established, the breach will not be repaired, Scripture will not be fulfilled, and Yahshua will never come again. Though this office is sometime related to this writer, it is only done out of necessity; but it is the office that is critical and is addressed here as much as possible as such. It is absolutely critical we understand this governmental truth!
As has been noted, M. Night Shyamalan has been used of Yahweh to reveal some incredible riddle truths through his movies, The Village being no exception. In it there is a young blind girl whose name is Ivy Walker. She ends up making a journey that her fiancé, Lucius, wanted to make, but was later stabbed by a demented man named Noah. In order to live, Lucius needed medical supplies that could only be obtained by going to the town, which turns out to be, as is characteristic of Night’s movies, a shocker! The setting of the movie is in the latter 1800’s; but when Ivy climbs over the wall, one realizes that on the other side is the twenty-first century! How does this prophesy? Let us see.
In Genesis 49:22, a prophesy regarding Joseph begins:
“Joseph is a fruitful (lit.) son,
A fruitful (lit.) son by a spring;
Whose (lit.) daughters walk over the wall.”
When Ivy Walker got to the end of the road that led to the wall, on the other side thereof being the twenty-first century, there was ivy growing on it; and as we read here in Genesis 49:22, Ivy Walker climbed over the wall! If you think this correlation is mere happenstance, think again.
When Ivy climbed over that wall, she essentially time-traveled over a hundred years! In Return of the Raven, we noted that Joseph was a clear picture of the twelfth apostle. Per his dream wherein his brothers were eleven stars that bowed down to him, as a type of the twelfth apostle, he had to go out from them and prepare for them a place of deliverance from death. Joseph had to go to the pit, to death, and to the jail, bondage, before he was elevated to become the deliverer for his brothers. Even so, the place of the twelfth apostle had to go through death and bondage, before Yahweh likewise elevates it to its place affording deliverance. The office of the twelfth apostle, the Joseph, the twelfth star, even the twelfth rib, is preserved through death and bondage so as to preserve life, to provide deliverance!
When Ivy climbed over the wall, she time-traveled over a hundred years. Thus we see that Night’s movie was propounding a riddle of the promise regarding the twelfth apostle, the Joseph, who would find fulfillment 2,000 years after the church began and “walk over the wall.” By establishing a twelfth apostle in this day, an Ivy Walker climbs over the wall of 2,000 years and provides that which is necessary to preserve the life of a Lucius. “Lucius” means “light,” the name of the Luke (light) second Remnant, the Zerah (light) that is birthed following the breach.
Interestingly, similar to Leah, Ivy was blind. But she had sight that others did not have. Her father said regarding her – “You are a strong one, Ivy. You lead when others would follow; you see light when there is only darkness.” (Interestingly, she saw light emanating from Lucius, whose name means “light.” She saw Lucius, “light,” in the darkness – the second Remnant in Christianity.) Legally, the twelfth apostle is from a Leah work, the first Remnant, and it is he who walks over the wall, time-traveling 2,000 years, and provides that which preserves alive the “Lucius,” the light! And most interestingly, when Ivy tells Lucius that she is going to get the medicine, the ravens are calling out. This is the work of sending out the raven until the remnants of the waters of wrath are dried up.
It might seem puzzling why it was a Noah who tried to kill Lucius. But what is it that people call the flood that killed mankind? Is it not called Noah’s flood? It was this wrath that killed all of mankind, and it was Noah and his drunkenness that led to his nakedness in his tent that likewise represents Yahweh in His wrath. (Read The Conflict, page 3.)
It is thus fitting that Noah attempted to kill Lucius, and that Ivy killed the beast figure that Noah put on. The pit that Satan has laid before all men, Satan, in his attempt to kill the twelfth apostle, will fall in himself. The pit that was set for our death, the pit Ivy in part fell into but escaped, the pit Joseph equally went into and from which was also delivered, even the gallows which Haman built for Mordecai, Satan will fall into and perish! That which was to be our end, will be our victory! The death that was set for us, will indeed become our deliverance. The death that Satan has used to destroy men, will be turned on him and by it he will perish. He who has lived by the sword, will indeed perish by the sword (Matthew 26:52). “He who digs a pit will fall into it” (Proverbs 26:27). Thus it will be – Benaiah, or the “son of Yahweh,” will kill “a lion in a pit on a snowy day” (1 Chronicles 11:22).
And what else do we read in this prophecy in Genesis 49 regarding the twelfth apostle? We have already seen that by establishing a man today in that office, he in effect performs time-travel, walking over the wall. And as we have already seen evidenced per Ivy and the beast, his days are not easy. In verse 23 we read:
"The archers bitterly attacked him,
And shot at him and harassed him.”
In Psalm 64:3-4 we read that “arrows” are the words of people:
Who have sharpened their tongues like a sword;
They aimed bitter words as their arrow,
To shoot from concealment at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.
This man has received thus far many such arrows, to the extent that it has meant the loss of my family, my own great sorrow, and most certainly harassment, including, at the encouragement and support of Christians, a lawsuit from my own wife. (They suggested far more.) Yet, Yahweh has preserved me, and kept His word alive and active in me, even as it is written:
“But his bow remained firm,
And his arms were agile,
From the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob
(From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel)” (vs. 24).
This is a MOST interesting passage. How is it that the “Shepherd, the Stone of Israel” can come from Joseph, when Yahshua is from Judah? This can occur in two ways. First, since this prophecy is regarding the Joseph twelfth apostle, “the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel” can refer to the office that that one is given. Thus, the one who stands in that office can indeed be a fulfillment per Ephraim, the son of Joseph, who in type in Joshua led the sons of Israel into the Millennial reign third-part Shelah period west of the Jordan – the associate of “the Captain of the host of Yahweh” (Joshua 5:13-15). Thus the Joseph would actually stand in the place of Yahshua. This is the one who comes from the work upon which Yahshua said that He would build His church – on first Remnant Peter (Matthew 16:18).
On the other hand, it is in fact the second Remnant who prepare the way for the return of the true “Shepherd, the Stone of Israel.” By filling that office with an Elijah, that office is then replaced by the true fulfillment – Yahshua, Elijah thus preparing the way in that office. Even as John the Baptist said, the one who equally preceded Yahshua’s ministry – “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). What John the Baptist began, Yahshua picked up and fulfilled (John 3:25-30). Thus the Joshua prepares the way for the true “Shepherd, the Stone of Israel.”
Now for the best part – the promised blessings! Here we see what the second Remnant has to look forward to in the days ahead.
“From the God of your father who helps you,
And by the Almighty who blesses you
With blessings of heaven above,
Blessings of the deep that lies beneath,
Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
The blessings of your father
Have surpassed the blessings of my ancestors
Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills;
May they be on the head of Joseph,
And on the crown of the head of the one distinguished among his brothers” (25-26).
And may Yahweh fulfill His word regarding His twelfth apostle and the victorious Bride.
Furthermore regarding Noah and this flood, do you know what the word, Ararat, the place where the ark came to rest, means? The place where the ark rested until the remaining waters of wrath dried up while the raven flew over them, means – “the curse is reversed”!
This is precisely what we have been considering, especially since the writings regarding the Curse of 1920 and the Red Sox World Series victory when their curse of 1920 was reversed. It speaks of the promise given concerning Noah, which, obviously, he did not fulfill. “This one shall give us rest from our work and from the toil of our hands from the ground (our earth flesh works) which Yahweh has cursed” (Genesis 5:29). Man’s works have been cursed for 6,000 years, and only now do we have the hope and opportunity to see that curse reversed, and we as soul and flesh men enter into His glory. Remember, it was when the ark came to rest on Ararat, “the curse is reversed,” that the raven was sent out. Ararat clearly speaks of what this release, this raven work, is all about – reversing the curse that has been on man for 6,000 years! And the root of the curse on man we will now consider, including its specific identity and the legal solution to its end. Here again this is tied to the office of the twelfth apostle.
At the time of this writing, this writer watched a movie titled The Thirteenth Warrior. You might imagine why it was of interest. The thirteenth place in the government of Yahweh is the place of Yahshua. He had His twelve apostles, and He occupied the place of the thirteenth. Thus, in the latter rain period, there are again the twelve apostles, and the place of the thirteenth is filled by the former rain twelfth apostle, that is until Him to whom it belongs comes.
In this movie, the thirteenth warrior was (as we discussed in Return of the Raven) different from the others. He too was from a different place, and he was characterized by weakness.
Based on the title, I wondered if the movie might be prophetic, and in the opening scene I fully suspected it was. The name of the one traveling with the man who was to be the thirteenth warrior was – Melchizedek! Thus in type there was the Shepherd (Melchizedek) and “the man, My associate” (Zechariah 13:7). Also, even as the twenty-four elders are represented by the twenty-four ribs, so a woman determined the thirteen warriors by bones, the thirteenth bone being unique from the others. And quite relevant, this thirteenth warrior was a writer; and very importantly, he was able to understand the riddle that another old woman propounded, giving them the ability to defeat the ones who were called “the eaters of the dead.” Who is the eater of the dead? Him who licks up the dust/man (Genesis 3:14). And quite revealingly, when they went out to effect victory, the cry of the raven was equally in the background.
The riddle was that the will of this evil that was afflicting them was, and was in, the earth (the curse). “This one shall give us rest from our work and from the toil of our hands from the ground which Yahweh has cursed.” The thirteenth warrior discerned from the riddle that the woman spoken of was in the earth, in a cave, so they descended into the earth. Even as it is written that Yahshua “descended into the lower parts of the earth” (Ephesians 4:8-9), so we too as mere men have done likewise. As it is written in Psalm 139:7-16, “my mother’s womb” is equally called “the depths of the earth.” As mortal men, we too have descended into the “lower parts of the earth,” and we too as the Elijah bear the opportunity to ascend on high and lead captive a host of captives and give gifts to men, something Christians have totally failed to effect! This is a very significant point!
We will not go into the entire message of this movie, but most certainly need to examine one very important and revealing truth. After watching it, it was obvious there were some clear prophetic testimonies; and something was said in it relating to truth we had already seen in part, that stirred a very important question.
Part of the riddle that the woman propounded to them was – “Slaughter them till you rot; you’ll accomplish nothing. Find the root; strike the will.” This evoked an immense interest on this man’s part, for getting to the root of the curse is the very matter and concern addressed in the writings regarding the Curse of 1920. Unless we can get to the legal root of the problem, we will go the way of all men and rot and accomplish nothing! But most importantly, how can we effectively cut off that curse if we do not know precisely what the root truly is?
The Scriptures and history give us a very significant testimony as to the presence of the root and the necessity and consequence of striking it. Christianity is indeed mystery Babylon, and Christianity will come to its end by the same means as when natural Babylon was overcome by the Medo-Persians – by the two-part Remnant. But more specifically, in the former case the waters of the Euphrates were dried up when the army of Cyrus under Darius diverted their flow. They then marched along the river bed and under the walls to defeat the city during Belshazzar's feast.
After watching The Thirteenth Warrior, I was very much aware that the root was the Euphrates; and even as the Euphrates being dried up led to the fall of Babylon, equally when Yahshua cursed the fig tree that represented Christianity, it too “withered from the roots” (Mark 11:20). The Euphrates and the root of the fig tree were the same thing, and drying them up spoke of the like results – the fall of Christianity! (Read The Love of Money, page 9 to understand what Yahshua meant concerning casting “this mountain” into the sea.)
But still, what was the root? How can one be effective in overcoming the works of Satan, the “eater of the dead,” if they do not understand the specific legal way it can be accomplished? The enemy, Satan, cannot be defeated but by clear and accurate understanding; and that, as it relates to the laws of the kingdom. So how could the root be dried up if we did not understand what the root of the problem was per the kingdom?
One place to get an answer was to go to an Elijah in my life. Kyle Nixon had been used of Yahweh many times to speak truth through movies; so I called him and he watched it. I did not tell him what I was being stirred about, and after he watched it I posed the question to him – What is the root? The answer rang clear and full of truth.
“What one thing is so offensive about the Remnant Bride teaching?,” he asked. I knew what he was talking about, for it had been an offensive truth to him as well. But my answer was that there were two offensive points, and I saved the one I knew he was referring to until the last. The first, I said, was that this man is the Elijah, even the twelfth apostle. That is hugely offensive to some. But the second thing, which I knew he was referring to, was that of holding all things in common, or giving up everything to be Yahshua’s disciple (Luke 14:33).
Then Kyle referred to something that was obvious once he said it. 1 Timothy 6:10 tells us that “the love of money is the root of all evils.” And he equally pointed out that Yahshua said – “You cannot serve God and wealth.” “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other” (Matthew 6:24). Thus, what Kyle was saying was right – the root that has to be dried up in order to defeat Satan and wither Christianity, is the root of wealth/money!
Thus we read in Jeremiah 51:13 regarding Babylon, the prophetic type of mystery Babylon – “O you who dwell by many waters (the Euphrates), abundant in treasures, your end has come.” This is equally the “great wealth” seen in mystery Babylon in Revelation 18:11-17. These treasures/wealth are the root, and this is the woman pictured in The Thirteenth Warrior who was at the uttermost end of the cave. Watch the movie and see if you do not think of mystery Babylon when you see her. This is the one of whom the woman said must be killed in order to “strike the will,” “she is the will.” And as happened at Babylon, so it happened to her. Even as Darius entered Babylon and took off its head, Belshazzar, so the leader of the twelve warriors took off the head of the woman, representative mystery Babylon. Satan must be removed from Christianity!
Yahweh has not left the truth of this matter regarding treasures/wealth to be an unknown mystery/riddle to His Bride, for He has given us six writings already regarding it; and even now, following is yet another highly compelling and confirming testimony, and this in regard to the twelfth apostle.
Who was it who had Yahshua’s money box? Judas, the twelfth apostle. And when he went out and killed himself, where did that money box go next? It stayed with the office and went to the one who filled it – Satan, the devil (John 6:70). As evidence that that money box had thereby departed from the remaining eleven apostles, and as a clear prophetic testimony of what would take place in the church, where did the first Remnant believers place their money, their wealth? Did they too place it in the money box? No, for they no longer legally possessed the money box. Quite significantly, three times in Acts (4:35, 37, and 5:2) we are told that they brought the money and “laid it at the apostle’s feet.” Why is this repeated three times, and why did they place the money at their feet when the feet represent kingdom rights? The answers to these questions are most revealing!
While the disciples were, in part, doing that which they should have done (they were to sell all, which Yahweh did accomplish via persecution – Acts 8:1), placing their wealth at the apostle’s feet aptly prophesied what would happen to the three-part, 3,000 year, period of Christianity (which is cut short to two parts, 2,000 years). The three times that it is written that the money was placed at the apostle’s feet, foretold that the kingdom rights would be corrupted with money for 3,000 years! Even as Simon the magician sought to obtain the Holy Spirit with money (Acts 8:9-24), so we see foretold that the church would do likewise. All their programs are built on money; money is the foundation of the kingdom they have built.
It is very significant and directly relevant that Yahshua told these same disciples beforehand – “If I do not wash (your feet), you have no part with Me” (John 13:8). Clearly, the corruption of the disciples’ feet spoke directly to the evil in which they would participate when three times it is said that the money was placed at their feet, revealing the corruption of the kingdom with money! But again, this was a type of that to come.
That which happened to Ananias and Sapphira, has happened to the church ever since. The feet, the kingdom rights of men going all the way back to the first Remnant, have been corrupted by money. Even as it was spoken by Peter, so it has been for 2,000 years – “’Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they shall carry you out as well.’ And she fell immediately at his feet, and breathed her last” (Acts 5:9-10). Sapphira died with her money; and most significantly, at Peter’s corrupted feet. And it is this specific corruption of the kingdom that has caused men to die ever since. “The feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they shall carry you out as well.”
Furthermore, the truth you are reading here is the fulfillment of that which was spoken by Yahshua as He performed that prophetic washing – “What I do you do not realize now; but you shall understand after this” (13:7). The corruption of their feet, of the kingdom, would be by money; and the day would come, and now is, when “the man, My associate” rises from the supper from which you are eating, the truth of the marriage supper of the Lamb, and takes water, basin, and towel to wash your feet. This is not only the feet of the latter rain twelve apostles, but all those today who are called His disciples, who give up all to follow Him, His Bride. This is how the kingdom will be cleansed, and this is when and how the root of Christianity, the Euphrates, the root of the fig tree, is dried up – the ax is laid at the wealth/money.
Again, what was, and is today, the one legal remedy per this matter of money? What was the remedy with the first twelve that they could not implement? The remedy is the money box that belongs to Yahshua and is given into the care of the twelfth apostle. All wealth belongs to Him, and He alone has the rights to it. One’s wealth must be placed in that box alone in order to dry up the curse that is on man and on the church. The money box is Yahweh’s legal means of deliverance from death, the means whereby your feet, your kingdom rights, may be washed clean.
The “money box” that legally resides with the twelfth apostle has a most revealing root meaning. According to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word for “box,” “glossokomon” (#1101), comes from two words – “glosso” (#1100), meaning “tongue,” and “kosmos” (#2889), meaning “the world.” Thus the money is put in the “tongue of the world.” Is this not exactly what money is – the tongue of the world? Money is the language every man knows. It is what makes the world work and communicate. What more is money?
As we have seen over and over, there is nothing new under the sun, and things occur as patterns of like things at other levels. What is money? It is like blood to the world – as it flows it gives life to the world. The more it flows, the more life it brings to the world. But that is at the world level, which Yahshua said is not His kingdom. What is His kingdom? His kingdom is that which is from above – the kingdom of heaven. So if there is a “blood” that flows through and gives life to the world, what is its parallel in the kingdom of heaven? What money is to the world, the Spirit is to the kingdom. But kingdom man has replaced the Spirit with money, and thus corrupted the kingdom – “You cannot serve God and wealth.”
We are told that anyone who is double minded cannot expect that he will receive anything from Yahweh (James 1:7-8). It is also written – “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other.” In the end, you will either rely upon the blood of money and stay in this world from which comes your life, or you will rely upon the blood of the Spirit and place all you have in Yahshua’s money box and ascend alive. “If I do not wash (your feet), you have no part with Me.”
Legally, the twelfth apostle cannot kill Satan. As a legal part of the first Remnant, he only has the legal right to bruise his head. Only the second Remnant can finish the work and kill him. But, as the twelfth apostle and the legal first Remnant, he does have the right and responsibility to establish the one who will defeat him, and can legally hold the money box without ill consequences.
Kyle Nixon called during the writing of this section and asked that a testimony he was aware of be added. This experience gave him hope that the office this man has evidently been set into is indeed real. I will share this now.
When I was around five years old, I was lying on the floor watching television when my father came to me and said that my aunt, who was visiting, said that I had stolen money out of her purse. I had not, and told him so. But he did not believe me, and took me into the bedroom and began whipping me with his belt. My father was not prone to being harsh or unreasonable in his correction of me (in fact this is the only whipping I can specifically remember receiving from him), but in this sole case he had my left hand in his left hand, and his belt in his right hand, and I was going in circles around him, saying that I did not do it, while he continued to flail my backend and say I did. About the third time around, I realized that the way to stop this affliction was to say I did steal it, which I did so, and thus the circles and flailing ceased.
Needless to say, I never forgot that! But strangely, though I confessed I stole the money, he never asked for it from me either. When I was almost forty years old, I was visiting my father; we were going to town and he was driving. For some reason I brought that up and he began to cry. He told me that my aunt admitted afterward that I did not steal the money; she must have found it.
That experience indelibly imprinted on me a complete aversion to women’s purses. I would not touch a woman’s purse for anything; and even after marrying, when asked to hand my wife her purse, I picked it up very carefully as though it was an unclean thing. It took years before I was even remotely comfortable with a woman’s purse, and even today am very respectful of and consciously regard any woman’s purse. So why did Kyle ask me to share this?
As you know from reading here, Yahweh has called this man to be an intercessor. Intercession is not just prayer, but it is identification. One earns a right before Yahweh through intercession, by paying a price, even as Yahshua did so for us. He is our example of an intercessor and intercession.
When my father unjustly whipped me in a way I would never forget, it not only permanently imprinted on me a great respect for a woman’s purse, but as an intercession at a very young age purchased for me the ability to hold carefully the purse of the Bride and not do as Judas did – “he used to pilfer what was put into it” (John 12:6). My father’s purpose was to mold me into the man that I was to be, to equip me; and Yahweh used him in an intercessoral way per a purse to establish in me a quality that insured that I not follow in the way of my predecessor. My father, even in his error, for which he later shed tears, was Yahweh’s instrument to equip me to handle the money box, the Bride’s purse!
We close this section with one final observation per the highly prophetic movie, The Village. The purpose for the village that they created was to preserve innocence, and one of the key factors of it was that there was no money. Ivy’s father spoke to her as he was about to tell the truth regarding that work – “You do not know of money; it is not part of our life here.” He then went on to tell how money can change good into evil. To preserve the innocence of the Bride, without spot or wrinkle, it must also be said of her – “You do not know of money,” or as it was likewise spoken by Peter just before he healed the man who was lame from birth (an incredible prophetic testimony of the latter rain, once again healing/restoring feet) – “Silver and gold have I none.”
In regard to this movie, it is also significant to note that when she gave the young man the note for the supplies, she gave him time in exchange, a watch. For a woman who had just time-traveled over a hundred years, this seems like an appropriate payment. What the establishment of a twelfth apostle will mean for the church and the world today, is just what was seen when we last see the young man – a ladder is leaning against his truck and he is stunned. The establishment of the twelfth apostle is the establishment of the one who can ascend and descend, who can chew the cud, who is able to ascend and descend Jacob’s ladder.
“If I do not wash (your feet), you have no part with Me.”
