Yesterday, September 25, 2023, was Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. For us it was a Jubilee and the door opener for the long-awaited Open Door Ministry, prophesied nearly 40 years ago. I have written about this Open Door Ministry in past years, though not recently, because it was delayed continuously and always just out of reach. This was not discouraging to me personally, but for those who did not have this revelation, there was a certain amount of skepticism or discouragement.
I long suspected that this Open Door Ministry would begin prior to our ability to be transported around the world in glorified bodies. (Example: Philip in Acts 8:39, 40.) I understood, then, that this new form of ministry would require funds, planes, and other tangible things. My view has been proven to be correct. Our Jubilee this year occurred without first seeing the resurrection of the dead on Rosh Hoshana (September 16). Hence, we know that the we will not be transformed with new bodies on the first day of Tabernacles this year (September 30).
So also, on the Jubilee (September 25), has concluded a wrestling match with Peniel, and perhaps we have been given a new name in some way, but it is not yet the time for the great Jubilee in which the earth is set free from the bondage of Babylon—much less from the bondage of sin going back to Adam. Those are yet future fulfillments of the Jubilee principle.
Even so, yesterday it occurred to me: What is the purpose of a year of Jubilee? Why a year? Why not just a day of Jubilee where the shofar is blown as a one-time event? As I discussed this with friends, we concluded that the Jubilee day is the start of a year-long cycle culminating next year. In other words, what has begun now will, in some way, reach a crescendo on or by Yom Kippur in 2024.
The year 2024, of course, is extremely important because it is 70 Jubilees since Joshua’s Jordan crossing into the Promised Land. We have been anticipating the year 2024 since 2017, when the transfer of authority occurred from the beast systems to the saints of the Most High (Daniel 7:22, 27). As I have written in the past, in 2017 we entered into a 7-year cycle wherein the great “tree” of Babylon is falling, as per Daniel 4:23.
New readers will have to search the archives of my blogs to get the background on this. A summary can be found in my book, Daniel’s Seventy Weeks.
A few years ago, I teamed up with John in South Africa when he requested assistance to defend from certain spiritual attacks (curses). From that small beginning, a new story began to emerge, as well as a close friendship with him and his family. Revelation increased, and God began to paint a picture of His plan to redeem the earth and to establish His Kingdom. Though funds would be required to implement His will on a practical level, the revelation of His will was crucial, as this would tell us what to do and how to do it according to His will.
Many of our instructions were given in miraculous ways that most people would find incredible. God began to leave written notes around John’s house, either on paper or on some other object. In all, John now has a collection of more than a thousand such notes, along with photos of messages written on other surfaces, such as the bonnet (or hood) of the car, or on the tile of the bathroom wall. These messages were in addition to direct angelic visitations.
When I wrote about some of these things in the past, many were skeptical for various reasons, but the Lord always confirmed these things to me personally. Furthermore, God had already prepared me for a great work to come out of South Africa. On August 29, 1984, while in spiritual warfare, I had a powerful vision of a great light over South Africa. At the time, I had very little insight as to what this meant, but I assumed it had to do with the outpouring of the Spirit, as well as a modern fulfillment of Isaiah 9:2, 3,
2 The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. 3 You shall multiply the nations, you shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in Your presence as with the gladness of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
To “divide the spoil” means to give the victors in battle a portion of that which has been captured. This is part of the prophetic blessing that Jacob gave to his son, Benjamin, in Genesis 49:27,
27 Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he devours the prey, and in the evening he divides the spoil.
God has made it clear that, insofar as our work is concerned, “Benjamin” is South Africa. Hence, “the spoil” is to be divided from South Africa. Provision is centered in South Africa in the midst of the so-called “Dark Continent.” This is, in part, the “light” that I saw in 1984.
So a few years ago, provision began to come through John in South Africa. But this was not without opposition from high-level occult leaders of Mystery Babylon, who discerned that this was an alarming turn of events. There were multiple sources of provision, but this spiritual opposition (curses, death threats, assassination attempts, etc.) seemed to prevail. We sought the will of God, however, and were able to overcome all obstacles. Yet this took time, and the delays were often frustrating.
Finally, in December of 2021 the first actual transfer of funds occurred. We thought this was the breakthrough, but the receiving bank refused to acknowledge receipt of funds, even though we had hard proof that the funds had landed. It took months before the bank officers finally admitted that the funds were there. Nonetheless, they still refused to obey the court orders and release the funds.
Through all of this conflict, God brought some key people into the picture to help John, each in their own way. For example, George was the head of Interpol in Africa. He was assassinated in February 2022, a few weeks after helping us. The next month a high-level banker volunteered to help John, and she forced the bank officials to capitulate and to admit that the funds had indeed been received by the criminal bank. Soon she was “mugged” and had to spend a weekend in the hospital.
Babylonian leaders do not want to give up power, and their trained witches were discerning enough to know that John was a threat to their seat of power. Furthermore, God hardened their hearts (as He did with Pharaoh) in order to bring them to their own Red Sea disaster. Even so, this meant that there would be more delays, as everything takes time.
The funds sent to the bank were thus acknowledged, and the bank owners were given court orders to release the funds, but they simply refused, because they had the backing of the ruling political party. In fact, these bankers were successors to the earlier colonialists, and they never actually gave up power in 1994 when the political situation changed to its present form. Whoever has the gold makes the rules, and South Africa was no exception to the rule.
Meanwhile, John found other sources of funding and turned his attention to these alternatives. About a year ago, God revealed the name of a high-level bankers, saying, “I have trained her for eight years.” He said that she would be very useful to us in the future. I can say no more about this, because I do not want her to be exposed to danger. I will just say that we are amazed at how God works, even with those who do not know Him. It reminds me a lot of King Cyrus, of whom it is said that He was a “messiah” (Isaiah 45:1). Of him, we read in Isaiah 45:4,
4 For the sake of Jacob My servant, and Israel My chosen one, I have also called YOU [Cyrus] by your name; I have given you a title of honor though you have not known Me.
Isaiah 45 is the great chapter setting forth the sovereignty of God, and Cyrus is the prime example. God finds people useful, whether they know God or not. It is the same today. God has raised up Christians, Hindus, Muslims, as well as those who have no religious affiliation, to assist us with great enthusiasm. Why? Because they agree with what we intend to do, even if they lack full understanding of the Kingdom of God as we see it. They understand the problem in the world, and they want to see a better world.
Finally, 3 of the original bankers who essentially stole the funds in December 2021, came to John and told him flatly that they would never release the funds. This was totally unexpected. They said that they had the full backing of the ruling party, and apparently this gave them the confidence to admit that they had indeed stolen the funds. But then we received unexpected help once again, and those same bankers quickly realized that they were in serious trouble.
The bottom line is that the entire board of directors of the criminal bank were forced to sign a document of capitulation. This was signed and delivered on Saturday, September 23, 2023. Because Monday was a holiday, today the funds were released.
But God had more plans than we realized. Although Monday (Yom Kippur) was a bank holiday, God saw fit to mark this day of provision bypassing the banks altogether. That will be a story for the future, as I am not sure that I have authorization to give any details. Just to say that the first real funding came on Yom Kippur, even before the funds were available from the criminal bank.
So where do we go from here? I believe that Yom Kippur 2023 has marked the start of the Open Door Ministry. It is a door opener which makes travel possible. We have a Tabernacles conference to host from October 13-15, so my travel may not begin prior to the conference. But it also means that we can now resume our search for property where we can set up our international headquarters for the work ahead of building the Kingdom.
The funding mechanism and bank accounts now have to be set up before we can actually purchase property and implement this new reality. But I am confident that this should be in place by the time of the feast of Tabernacles. You who have supported us over the years have prepared the way for the work ahead, and I sincerely thank you for this.
