When I first began communicating with John in South Africa, he talked about his concern that Europe had used South Africa from the beginning as a source of wealth. The wealth (gold and diamonds in particular) was mined and sent to Europe, leaving the country and its people in poverty. He made it clear that his vision was to reverse this practice.
Reconciling Black and White
One night in December 2020, one of John’s (black) neighbors was having a loud party. At about 2:00 a.m., John sent Bradley to ask them to quiet down so that they could get some sleep. The neighbors got angry, and a woman punched Bradley in the face. John filed assault charges, but the woman retaliated by charging Bradley with making racial insults—a serious crime in South Africa. Further, the courts there are every bit as corrupt as we see in America.
This brought about a series of court cases in the past year and a half. Recall that in one of those cases, while Bradley was testifying in the witness stand, he was attacked by three witches who appeared out of nowhere. That court session had to be postponed until later.
These court cases took up valuable time, and when they asked God to put an end to the situation, He told them that He wanted to see a father defend his son in a kangaroo court. In other words, God wanted them to experience what He Himself had endured during Jesus’ trial before Caiaphas. God wants people who understand Him and who have shared in His own experiences. That is why we often have troubles in life. It is not that God is punishing us, as so many assume.
On July 15 (a type of the first day of Tabernacles) they had to go to court once again, and this time the judge told the two parties of the dispute to sit down and try to reconcile their differences. So Bradley met with the woman, and the result was that they apologized to each other and reconciled. At the end, they even hugged each other.
Of course, this reconciliation occurred on a private level, which then has to be formalized tomorrow (July 20) by the judge herself. If all goes well, this should be the final court session.
We saw this as an indication of the reconciliation between black and white, which is part of our Kingdom goal, with equal justice to all, regardless of race. (It was also a reconciliation between man and woman, by the way, to fulfill Galatians 3:28.) Our purpose is to build the Kingdom as God sees it.
The End of Jacob’s Trouble (2001-2022)
When John told me this story, I looked in my records for what was happening in 2001, since one of the dominant time cycles in 2022 is the 21-year cycle of “Jacob’s trouble.” I discovered that on July 20, 2001 we began our Reconciliation Conference at the Disciples of Christ church in Turlock, California. July 20-22 was a weekend that year, and the conference was hosted by my long-time friend, Fred Bigler, who was the adult Sunday School teacher at the church.
So, Fred, it appears that our Reconciliation conference was prophetic and established the reconciliation that is now occurring 21 years later.
In fact, July 20 is turning out to be an extremely important date in other ways as well. President Ramaphosa is being pressured within his own party to resign. He may do so as soon as tomorrow. We will see. His replacement stands patiently behind the curtain.
Tomorrow we will be offering formally a prayer of dedication. The precise nature of this prayer cannot yet be revealed, but our anticipation is that July 20 will be perhaps the most important watch date in years. It seems that our Reconciliation conference in July 20-22, 2001 laid the foundations for many important events in 2022, things we could not possible know 21 years ago.
We are building a Kingdom, not a republic or a democracy. What is happening now, of course, is not the full manifestation of God’s Kingdom, but it is an important beginning point. We believe that our Kingdom project will evolve through a number of stages over time, until the apex of the Kingdom is established in the earth.
Reconciling the Church with God
Last evening, I had another online call, because God had called us to the divine court to learn something and to make some declarations of reconciliation. I cannot share the background story of this yet, because it involves real people. However, the bottom line is that what Bradley did to reconcile blacks with whites in the spirit of forgiveness, we were required to do the same with the church as a whole.
Most of you know that the church is a manifestation of King Saul, while the overcomers represent David, who was persecuted by Saul. The church as a whole is disqualified to rule the coming Kingdom, mostly on account of its blindness in regard to the reconciliation of all things. The church lacks the vision of the divine plan and is therefore limited in its ability to build God’s Kingdom. They do not believe that God will reconcile all things, but that God will lose most of His creation.
In biblical times, God used Apollyon to “lose” the “lost” (apollumi) sheep the house of Israel. Our calling is given in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, where Paul wrote of “the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them.” We are ambassadors carrying that message to the world.
Those who believe otherwise are not qualified to be ambassadors of that ministry. But God has called the overcomers to carry that message today. The church needs to be healed of its blindness in this regard. The church is the man born blind in John 9. When Jesus healed that man, it was the 6th miracle-sign in the gospel of John. In our present time, July 15-22 is a prophetic type of the 8 days of Tabernacles, and July 20 is therefore the time of the 6th sign about the man born blind.
Our divine court session last night extended forgiveness to the church. We had the right to forgive, because (like David) we had been victims of Saul’s persecution. Hence, we had to make this declaration in the divine court, which prepared the way for full reconciliation.
The Lord spoke a few days ago to tell us about a “loss of angels.” This seemed inconceivable, of course, but later God clarified this. The ancient house of Israel had lost angels when it went into the Assyrian captivity. Angels represent callings, and when Israel rejected its calling, their angels were decommissioned for a season. The same has occurred in 400 A.D. when the church began to reject the well-established belief in the reconciliation of all things. This rejection disqualified the church from being ambassadors of the ministry of reconciliation. Many angels were “lost” by being decommissioned, plunging the church into the tyranny of the Dark Ages.
Over recent years, we have been led, little by little, to recommission lost angels, beginning especially with Peniel in October of 1995. Recall that Peniel was originally decommissioned after Israel was found worshiping the golden calf. Peniel is the angel of transfiguration and the angel of the feast of Tabernacles. The archangel Michael, the angel of resurrection, replaced Peniel (Exodus 33:2, 3).
Anyway, in the last week we learned that Apollyon’s job was not only to lose the house of Israel but also to lose their angels through decommissioning. God showed this to us now so that we would have the revelation to recommission those lost angels to restore the church and heal the man born blind (John 9:1).
Judas and Peter
Judas and Peter betrayed Jesus in different ways. I’m quite sure that last March I wrote that John was betrayed in South Africa. Two of the team members were “bought” by our enemies in a pattern similar to Judas. But there is also the matter of Peter’s betrayal, when he denied Christ three times.
Just before Judas betrayed Jesus, Jesus told Simon Peter in Luke 22:31-34,
31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; 32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” 33 But he said to Him, “Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!” 34 And He said, “I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.”
First, Jesus was comparing Simon Peter with “wheat,” which prophetically puts him into the category of the church (wheat company).
Second, Jesus prayed for him (but not Judas), indicating that Peter would repent (be “turned again”).
Third, three times Peter was to deny knowing Christ.
The church itself later built itself on “the chair/throne of Peter.”
For this reason, the Vatican has followed Peter’s lead in denying Christ as well. The result has been that the Vatican, like Peter, has denied knowing Christ (Luke 22:57). By establishing its doctrine of eternal judgment, the church has proven that it does not really know Christ or His mind and purpose for the earth. And most Protestants remain just as blind.
Nonetheless, the church, like Peter, will repent at some point, and the man born blind will be healed so that he can truly come to know Christ for who He is.
Judas was called “the son of perdition” (apoleia, “loss”). Jesus said that none of His disciples were “lost” (KJV) except for the son of perdition (“loss”). See John 17:12 KJV. This suggested that the loss of Judas was part of the divine plan—otherwise Jesus would have prayed for him, as He did with Peter. Hence, Judas would not return until the time of the end when he and those he represents are set free by grace in the law of Jubilee.
Peter, on the other hand, was to repent in order to strengthen the other disciples. His betrayal of Jesus was far more temporary. Peter also represented the church as a whole (wheat company) in the bigger prophetic picture. The church will repent soon, I believe, but not in time to take part in the first resurrection.
Last night we recommissioned the angels that were lost through Apollyon’s influence in the church. We believe that the result will be similar to what happened with Peter, who repented. Luke 22:62 says, “And he went out and wept bitterly.” Though it was a bitter experience for Peter, he was reconciled to Christ. Likewise, the church will be reconciled to Christ and will be released from the curse of blindness that it imposed upon itself by claiming, “I do not know Him" (Luke 22:57).
Great things are being established at this end of the age, and we are privileged to be a part of it. You who believe the Gospel of the Kingdom are active participants in all that we do and declare in the divine court.
