This is just a quick update on events going on behind the scenes.
Things are happening at an unbelievable pace, as God continues to amaze us with the ease in which He accomplishes the impossible. All of this proves beyond a shadow of doubt that we are in the time of building the Kingdom.
The only apparent drawback is that God has hardened the hearts of the Babylonian rulers in order to give us legal cause against them, that will result in huge amounts of restitution to be given to the team in South Africa. Papers were filed yesterday (1/10), putting them on notice, and today the war has begun.
This may possibly be resolved by the end of the current week or by Monday, 1/15 (a type of Passover). But there are other possible “Passover” dates to watch in January, according to earlier patterns. On January 23, 1985, we held a prayer campaign called The Lord’s Doing. It was a prayer campaign to protect “children,” but we also called it a Passover prayer campaign.
January 27 has also been a “resurrection” date, first in 1982 and again in 1986, which may be comparable to 1/16, which is also a pattern resurrection date after the type of Passover.
So we have a few watch dates in January, and we will just have to see what God does. Events are really out of our hands, though we are actively involved in what God is doing. Each faith work that we do empowers us to overcome the enemy, because faith is the key to victory. Faith comes by hearing and by obeying, no matter how silly the word seems to the carnal mind.
So Moses threw a tree into the bitter waters of Marah to heal the waters, while Jeremiah buried his underwear near the Euphrates (Jeremiah 13:1-5). The carnal mind insists that such things are the height of stupidity, but to Moses and Jeremiah, these were acts of faith that followed divine logic. The tree represented the cross, which healed the bitterness of the heart. The buried underwear, which was destroyed over a period of time time, represented the pride of Judah that was destroyed (Jeremiah 13:9).
God has us do many symbolic things as a matter of faith. For years, I hesitated to speak of these things in public, knowing that few people would understand. But then about 15 years ago I was led to teach about such things in order to raise up a generation that could break through the ceiling of church teaching (or lack of it). Many had taught about faith to gain personal prosperity or healing, but I was led to teach about faith to do prophetic things that would change the world.
I don’t think that such teaching has much chance of becoming popular, as it seems to lack personal gain as a motivation. But God seldom uses a lot of people to accomplish His will. His normal pattern—as seen in the example of Gideon’s army—is to whittle down the numbers until victory becomes impossible. Then He wins against all odds.
Nonetheless, in years past I never would have guessed that so many would respond to the word, as you have done, or that so many would understand this level of faith. I know that our heavenly Father is pleased, and that we have an army that is battle-ready.
In recent months it has become apparent to us (the team) that we needed to own our own bank. Banks have a tendency to rob the people, so it seemed ideal that God would eventually provide us with our own bank. After all, we could hardly rob ourselves, could we?
In the past few months God has given us the precise location for our team headquarters, where our bank was to be set up. I had never heard of the place and had to look it up online. Yesterday, a bank at that location was declared to be insolvent and went on the market for sale. The big bank that has been working with us has decided to purchase it as an equal venture with our team.
So in spite of the opposition of hardened hearts, the plan of God moves forward at incredible speed, and the accuracy of the word of the Lord is verified over and over again. The fact that this occurred on 1/10 also confirms the importance of that date, as we have been discerning.
Once established at that location, the main infrastructure of the Kingdom will be set, and we can then begin the main work of funding Kingdom projects according to the laws of the Kingdom. There are thousands of such projects, some large and some small. Many of these involve suppressed technologies that would be very disruptive to the existing Babylonian order, but which would be a great blessing to the people.
Continue to pray for us, that God would open doors and prepare the way for the work ahead.
