Chapter 4: The Church Aborts the Manchild

In October 1984 some co-workers asked me to perform a wedding ceremony in early November. His name was Christian, and his bride had a name that means "pearl." I heard: "Christ will marry the pearl of great price." The Lord told me to do it and to treat it like His marriage with Israel at Mount Sinai. He also said, "Watch them, for as they go, so goes the Church."

Two months later, in early January 1985 I received a phone call from a friend out of state who asked me to pray about holding a prayer campaign for our children. I prayed, and the Lord said to do so on Jan. 23, 1985 and to name it from Psalm 118:23. Hence, we named it "The Lord's Doing" Prayer campaign. It was to be effective on four levels: Our children, our spiritual children, the children of Israel, and the Manchild.

A few weeks later, my boss (where I worked at the time), who was part of our group, heard from his attorney that a child had been born on January 23 who was eligible for adoption. My boss and his wife had been trying to adopt for some years, so they agreed to adopt the child born on the day of our prayer campaign for our children.

A month later, or about 6 weeks after the prayer campaign, it was announced to us at work that Christian and "Pearl" were expecting a baby. I asked them about the due date and when they had figured that they had conceived this child. I was told the child was conceived on January 23. That, of course, was the day of our prayer campaign, and I knew immediately that this was a sign of the birthing of the Manchild in the Church.

I was ecstatic, for in those days I did not realize that the Church could not bring forth the Manchild through Pentecost, nor did I know that we were still in a Pentecostal Age that would not end until 1993.

A month later, on the evening of April 8, 1985, the Lord suddenly came strongly upon me with a disturbing revelation to "come out of her, My people, that you be not partaker with her of her plagues." I wondered what had triggered this. The next morning "Pearl" miscarried. That was a shock, because it told me that the Church had aborted the Manchild.

Yet as I contemplated this in the days ahead, I came to see that some Christians abort as a deliberate act by refusing the revelation and provision of the feast of Tabernacles. Others merely miscarry due to lack of strength, as Hezekiah said in 2 Kings 19:3, due to eating too much spiritual junk food that has little food value. With some, it is merely an unbalanced diet.

This event in 1985 is what taught me about the Manchild and how the Church had aborted the Manchild for 70 generations. This is how I came to see more clearly that this was the reason the world had permitted abortion on demand, and how the world only follows the rules and behavior established by the example of the Church. The Church had been given a very real authority, but yet when the world did what the Church had done, the Church hypocritically denounced the world for its behavior.

Four years later, in May 1989 I went to visit some friends out of state, and I got to talking with their daughter (about 21 years old). Something in that conversation later sparked a word from the Lord, as I was driving home. The Lord suddenly told me, "She has had an abortion."

My immediate reaction was, "O Lord, why are You telling me this?" I was not comfortable with this knowledge and would not know what to do with it anyway.

He then said, "I want you to return later to lead her in a prayer of repentance."

I did return a month later, and when I was able to talk with her alone, I asked, "Do you mind if I ask you a personal question?"

"Go ahead," she said.

"Have you ever had an abortion?"

The look of shock and pain on her face almost made me regret asking. "How did you know? If my mother ever found out, she would kill me!"

"Don't worry, the Lord told me in order to lead you in a simply prayer of repentance." Her tearful prayer of repentance was beautiful, of course. Yes, there is forgiveness after abortion. God's love does not change for His children. And perhaps more important, God's love for the Church has not changed either, in spite of aborting the Manchild 70 times.

I then inquired further about the timing of her abortion and discovered it had occurred on April 9, 1985. It was the same day that "Pearl" had miscarried! Then I understood why I had felt that the Church had not only miscarried, but had aborted the Manchild as well. These two signs had occurred on the same day.

So that is how I came to believe that the Church under Pentecost had aborted the Manchild for 70 Manchild generations. But in 1985 God intervened in a marvelous way. The night before this occurred (as I wrote earlier), He had given me a revelation to "Come out of her, My people, that you be not partaker with her of her plagues."

God separated the overcomers from the Church, putting them into two distinct groups. This fulfilled the law in Deut. 22:9,

9 You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seeds, lest all the produce of the seed which you have sown, and the increase of the vineyard become defiled.

God has a vineyard. It is His Kingdom. During the Pentecostal Age, this vineyard has been sown with both barley (Tabernacle overcomers) and wheat (Passover and Pentecostal believers). In 1985 this situation reached critical mass, and God separated them into two "fields" in order that the barley company would not be held liable for the Church's abortion of the Manchild.

We are talking on a corporate level, not an individual level, of course. But in 1985 the issue was legally settled that the realm of Pentecost would NOT bring forth the Manchild. They were given ample opportunity to bring forth the Manchild, but aborted 70 times. Now God would work with a smaller group of people called Overcomers, pictured by barley (as I have explained in my book, The Barley Overcomers). Hence, if any individual desires to bring Christ to full birth and become a manifested son of God, he or she must do so through the Feast of Tabernacles. One must go beyond Pentecost.

Yes, it has always been this way, but in 1985 it was prophetically and legally established in the divine court. This was the preparation year for the 120th Jubilee from Adam in 1986, according to my book, Secrets of Time. Because the Church had failed in 1985, it did not receive the revelation of the Jubilee in 1986, so it was unable to declare the Jubilee at the appointed time, October 13, 1986.

This declaration was declared ten years later on Sept. 23, 1996 according to the Hezekiah Factor, which I explained also in Secrets of Time. By this Factor, we were able to declare the Jubilee ten years late, because God turned the clock back ten years to the appointed time.

The things that God has done since then have been amazing. There has been a steady progression of events designed to prepare the way for the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles. The purpose of this booklet is to share these things beyond our smaller circle of informed believers, so that many more may understand the signs of the times.

Suggested Prayer: "Father, it is the desire of my heart to become a manifested son of God. Separate me unto Yourself and plant me in your field of barley. Cultivate in me the character of Christ, and feed me with Your good Word, that I may give birth to Christ in Me through the Feast of Tabernacles. Thank-you for answering my prayer."
