In 2001 we received revelation that we were to engage in spiritual warfare to overthrow the golden calves over America. These golden calves had been set up by Jeroboam, who was of the tribe of Ephraim (1 Kings 11:26). We succeeded in completing this by March 24, 2001.
From November 22-29, we are engaged in a Divine Court work to do a “Part 2.” This time it is about Manasseh. Once both works have come to a successful conclusion, Joseph will be restored in the second work of Christ. My instructions, which were literally written on the wall, told me to focus on the sins of Jeroboam and to discern how “Babylon” was connected to this.
Manasseh, Son of Joseph
Joseph had a son named Manasseh (Genesis 41:51). His name means “forgetfulness,” and he was so named because, ‘God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.” Joseph’s “trouble” was that he was the lost son and was presumed to be dead. Secondly, he had “forgotten” his father’s household, prophetically speaking.
Centuries later, the tribe of Manasseh was part of the corrupt House of Israel, which God sent into exile in Assyria. Manasseh was one of the “lost tribes” of Israel, and as the centuries passed, these Israelites forgot their father’s house. They no longer knew their origins, and eventually the church came to believe that the Jews were the Israelites, replacing the original tribes. (This is the real “Replacement Theology.”)
Yet just as Joseph and his sons were eventually rediscovered and reunited with Jacob and the rest of his family, so also does this prophecy reveal the rediscovery and reinstatement of Joseph in the latter days (our own time). This is a necessary ingredient to the manifestation of the sons of God, because Joseph was given the birthright, being called a “fruitful bough,” or literally, a “fruitful son” in Genesis 49:22.
Manasseh, Son of Hezekiah of Judah
King Hezekiah was childless when the Assyrian army threatened Jerusalem (2 Kings 18:13). During those days Hezekiah nearly died, but Isaiah prophesied that he would be given a 15-year extension of life (2 Kings 20:6). The city was spared, Hezekiah’s life was spared, and three years later, Manasseh was born. Hence, when Hezekiah died, Manasseh was 12 years old (2 Kings 21:1).
Manasseh was a wicked king—worse than the foreign kings (2 Kings 21:9). So God raised up the king of Assyria to take him captive and imprisoned Manasseh in Babylon, which, at the time, was a province of Assyria. There Manasseh repented and prayed to God, who then caused the Assyrian king to release him and restore him to the throne in Jerusalem. Manasseh then became a godly king.
The full story is told in 2 Chronicles 33:10-13,
10 The Lord spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attention. 11 Therefore the Lord brought the commanders of the army of the king of Assyria against them, and they captured Manasseh with hooks, bound him with bronze chains, and took him to Babylon. 12 When he was in distress, he entreated the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. 13 When he prayed to Him, He was moved by his entreaty, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.
King Hezekiah’s son, Manasseh, is a prophetic type of the tribe of Manasseh in captivity to Babylon. He was Israel’s most wicked king, so God raised up the king of Assyria to bring him captive to Babylon. Hence, this was an Assyrian captivity, but it was also a Babylonian captivity, prophetically speaking.
This is the “Babylon” connection in the word given to me yesterday.
I have long understood this Manasseh to be a type of the “remnant,” because of Isaiah’s prophecy in 2 Kings 19:30, 31,
30 The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward. 31 For out of Jerusalem will go forth a remnant, and out of Mount Zion survivors. The zeal of the Lord will perform this.
Hezekiah, being childless and looking death in the face, needed an heir for the lineage to the Messiah. His extension of life gave him opportunity to beget Manasseh, and he was thus the “remnant” that survived the ordeal. Manasseh, however, needed to repent after his captivity in Babylon, so that righteous government might be established.
Manasseh’s life prophesied of Israel’s Assyrian/Babylonian captivity, which was to last until the present time. We are now at the time of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, where the people repent and remember their Father’s house. When their captivity is reversed, they will forget all their former troubles.
This is the event that we are now praying to fulfill from Nov. 22-29. We have this story of Hezekiah as a confirmation of our prayer, knowing that this is the will of God and that the pattern for our victory has already been written ahead of time in Scripture.
Establishing the New Jerusalem as our Capital
Recall that prophetic “Saul” died on May 30, 1993, which was 40 Jubilees since the day of Pentecost in the book of Acts. This also marked the beginning of the rise of David, who ruled over his own tribe from Hebron for 7 years and 6 months (2 Samuel 5:4, 5). He was then crowned king over all Israel, and his first exploit was to conquer the Jebusite city, renaming it according to the name that Shem had given it—Jerusalem.
David was crowned at the feast of Tabernacles, and soon thereafter he conquered Jerusalem, after he had ruled from Hebron for 7½ years. In our time, we repeated this prophetic cycle from May 30, 1993 to November 30, 2000. The overcomers were crowned at our Tabernacles conference in October 2000, and we then conquered Jerusalem on November 29. The following day, November 30, we declared the New Jerusalem to be the capital of the Kingdom.
We are now seeing this prophecy come to the next prophetic level in 2021.
Ending the Time of Jacob’s Trouble
In Secrets of Time, chapter 14, I explained the prophetic background of the statement in Jeremiah 30:7, “it is the time of Jacob’s distress.” Jacob had two times of distress (or “trouble,” KJV), each 21 years long. Israel as a whole experienced the same pattern, only their time of distress was 210 years each.
The captivity of Israel in later years was 12 x 210 years (2,520 years). In each case, the root number was 21, which is the biblical number for distress. (See The Biblical Meaning of Numbers from One to Forty.)
It is no coincidence, then, that from November 29/30, 2000 until November 29/30, 2021 is precisely 21 years. It represents a time of distress, ending with the conquest of Jerusalem and the establishment of the New Jerusalem as the Kingdom’s capital. What we did in the year 2000 was within the context of the rise of David, who was of the tribe of Judah. What we are doing now in 2021 is within the context of Manasseh, the son of Joseph.
You might say that this is the end of Joseph’s trouble. Yet this time Manasseh also represents both Judah and Joseph, as if the two sticks were reunited.
I never would have guessed that we would have to wait 21 years for this work to be completed. Until today, I did not even know that there was a Part 2 to be done. Only now was it necessary to know, so that we could go to the Divine Court and make the proper appeal at the appointed time.
Join with us in the Divine Court as we pray this model prayer for the restoration of Manasseh:
The Prayer for Manasseh (The Remnant)
Heavenly Father, we come before Your Divine Court in the name of Jesus and under His blood with thanksgiving and praise for the revelation of Your will.. We declare that we are in full agreement with You, and we rejoice that we may participate in Your plan for the world.
On behalf of the tribe of Manasseh, we hereby lodge a complaint in the Divine Court against the golden calves and the spirits behind them that have ruled the tribe since the days of Jeroboam. Father, we ask that You would empower us to cast them down, so that we may replace their rule with the righteous government of Your Kingdom.
Let that which was accomplished against the golden calves in 2001 in regard to Ephraim hold true also in regard to Manasseh, so that we may remember our father Joseph (Genesis 41:51) and the quarry from whence we were hewn (Isaiah 51:1, 2). Turn the hearts of the people of Manasseh, that they may remember You and thus fulfill their calling. Let them be restored to unity and agreement with Your plan for the earth.
Let the lost son, Joseph, be found once again and restored to his Father, so that there will no longer be any lost sheep of the House of Israel. Build Your Kingdom in the earth until all things are restored.
Thank-you, Heavenly Father, for answering our prayer and for giving us the victory through Christ’s own victory over sin and death. We pray this in the name of Jesus with thanksgiving and praise. Amen.
