Last evening, we got back from our week-long trip to pick up the dowry for the bride of Christ and to visit with the donor for a few days. God told him in a dream to give us a substantial amount of silver, so he called me a few weeks ago to tell me. I was led to pick it up and also spend a few days visiting with him. The significance of this silver is that it fulfilled the word of the Lord from 2001.
Back on June 19, 2001, we issued a call to respond to a prayer campaign called We Accept Your New Covenant Marriage Proposal. It was not the wedding itself, but an acceptance of God’s proposal of a New Covenant marriage.
We did not know when the marriage would actually take place, but we believe it was prophesied in Revelation 19:7-9,
7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready. 8 It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 9 Then he [the angel] said to me, “Write, ‘blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb’.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”
In those days, payment of a dowry sealed the betrothal, and from then on the bride was said to be married to her future husband—even before they were actually married. During the interim, the husband prepared a place for them to live, while the bride “made herself ready.” The marriage supper was the special feast—usually lasting a week—in which the groom partied with his friends. At the end of the marriage supper, he went to claim his bride, who, by this time, was clothed in “fine linen, bright and clean.”
It is also of interest to us that I was physically given the dowry on November 19, which, 21 years ago in 2001 was the day we were led to release the White Horse. Revelation 19:11 pictures Christ coming on a white horse to claim His bride. Prophetically speaking, this speaks of the New Covenant marriage that is coming shortly, where Christ will marry the “Sarah” company, not the “Hagar” company (Galatians 4:22-26).
In 2001, as we were preparing for the New Covenant Marriage Proposal, God indicated that He would provide a dowry of silver. Biblically, “the dowry of virgins” (Exodus 22:17 KJV) was 50 shekels of silver. It was paid to the father or guardian of the bride, and he was to hold it in trust on her behalf, invest it, and increase it in case she would be divorced later. In such a case it would serve as her alimony and child support. Or if her husband should die, she would have some means of support.
In our case, God led us to establish the dowry prophetically on May 2, 2001. (No precise amount was determined at that point.) We thought this would be provided before or on June 19, 2001. However, this did not happen, so we put it on the shelf alongside many other revelations. It was obvious then that the prophetic things we were doing in 2001 were for a later time.
On May 7, 2001, we were led to release 21 angels, not having a clear idea of their purpose, other than these were to prepare the way for something. Looking back, it is now clear that these represented 21 years of preparation for what has now transpired.
So the main beginning points, relative to the dowry, are May 2 and May 7, 2001. Recent events have now proven how we are to view this. However, I did not know this until today when I finally was able to do some calculations. There was no way that I could have planned this, as I had no idea that the dowry revelations of 2001 would involve cycles of Cursed Time. It turns out that the delay of the dowry was precisely 414 x 19 days (that is, 7866 days).
May 2, 2001 plus 7866 days comes to November 14, 2022 (the start of the new Prophetic Year of Provision).
May 7, 2001 plus 7866 days comes to November 19, 2022 (when the dowry was physically given to us).
The delay turned out to be a factor of 414, indicating 19 grace periods ending Cursed Time. It is now obvious that this Cursed Time cycle connects the time of the bride’s preparation with the garments that she needs to put on. The garment issue itself dates back to Adam and Eve, who lost these spiritual garments when God clothed them with “garments of skin” (Genesis 3:21). These were alternate (fleshly) garments to clothe them while God took their spiritual garments as a pledge on Adam’s debt on account of his sin.
The bride needs to be clothed with the fine linen of “the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:8). Those righteous acts, of course, are rooted in New Covenant faith (Romans 4:21, 22).
The number 19 is the biblical number of “Faith and Hearing,” as I showed in my book, The Biblical Meaning of Numbers. It appears that this shows faith on our part, which qualifies us for grace instead of the execution of judgment at the end of a Cursed Time cycle.
For those who are new, you can get a fuller study of Cursed Time in my book, Secrets of Time.
Now the end of Cursed Time is always marked by a time of cleansing, often by a 76-day cycle, since that is the biblical number for cleansing. Because November 14 is the start of the new Prophetic Year of Provision, we know that it is also the start of two cycles of cleansing. The first 76-day cycle extends from November 14 to January 29, 2023.
In other words, the 76-day cycle that naturally begins the new Prophetic Year overlays the 76-day cycle that follows the end of the Cursed Time cycles since May 2, 2001.
Up to now, we had no revelation that the time of the bride’s preparation—time to obtain the fine linen clothing—was associated in any way with a Cursed Time cycle. Yet we have known for many years that Cursed Time is somewhat of a misnomer, because it is also a grace period that gives people (or nations) time to repent. It is only when they do not repent that the judgment is executed. Repentance, on the other hand, cancels judgment and puts them on the path of Blessed Time (490) by adding 76 to 414.
So we have now entered the new Prophetic Year, marked by the first cleansing cycle from November 14 to January 29. Momentous events are already taking place behind the scenes, as God prepares the bride for her New Covenant role as a free woman. Her authority and value is expressed in Proverbs 31:10-31, and this is the climax of the entire book of Proverbs.
One further note: Many of you were not aware of our activities in 2001 when we were led to accept God’s New Covenant Marriage Proposal. That is not a problem, because we function as a body. When one part of the body does something, the whole body does it, regardless of time. What we do benefits people all the way back to Adam, as long as we are all part of the same body with the same goal and purpose. So if you are part of the same body, then you were with us in 2001 as well. When one rejoices, we all rejoice.
