Who is Jesus Christ?

And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.

1 John 4:14

Foundation Verse

In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old.

Amos 9:11

A Sign in the Year of Signs

Monday, April 13, 2020

In these tumultuous times, it is important to remember that God is still speaking and showing the path forward regardless of what is happening in the natural world around us. Israel is always a signpost as far as what God is doing. The feasts or appointed times in 2020 are going to release the way forward for God's people.

We are still in the midst of Passover and many suddenly saw that for the first time in over 3000 years, Israel was shut in family homes and commanded not to go out as a plague was roaming the earth. The evening of April 8 through to sundown April 9 was the first day of Passover. The Bible tells the story of the death angel passing over the houses that had the blood on their doorposts. Many in the world have been taking communion every day throughout this plague season and we, for one household, marked our doorposts in red on the night of Passover. I read of many doing the same. 

Now comes the sign. For those of you who have visited the baptismal site of Jesus which is also the traditional site where Joshua crossed over and celebrated Passover after their entry into the promised land, you will be aware that this area was heavily mined so no one was able to enter the small churches that were built there or deviate from the road leading into the site. This year, on April 9, the first day of Passover, a large planned explosion took place which cleared the area of mines. The newspaper article tells of how that the last of the 500 mines in the area were set off in a daisy-chain fashion. The vibration of the explosion rattled the picture frames of homes 30 km away! After this, they were able to enter the churches who were cleared of booby traps.Those who did said that it was like a time capsule. The tables were still laid for dinner! For the first time in 53 years, the way was clear for that monumental site. Not only is it the site of Jesus' baptism, and Israel's crossing over, but it is also the area where Elijah split the waters and went up in a chariot of fire and Elisha came back with the double portion. 

So what does this speak of? The numbers here are astounding. First of all, 53 speaks of Isaiah 53, the suffering Messiah. Isaiah 53 is the chapter that is left out of the Torah readings and is the main tool for the gospel in Israel. Could it be that an explosion of Isaiah 53 is coming all over Israel? The spot where John declared "Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world", has been opened up! And as Israel speaks, so it affects the world. Expect an explosion of the gospel and a fresh emphasis on the blood of Jesus to spread throughout the world. 

Next, as the sound of the explosion was felt 30 km away, the image of a 30 year old carpenter entering into his explosive ministry of signs, wonders and miracles is speaking of a flood of miracles about to hit the earth! It is important to note that Jesus not only healed the sick but had command over the earth. The anointing similar to what was carried by Elisha is also about to be seen. The earth has been in birth pangs for some time now. 

The table has already been set. It is important that we understand the time we are in. Beginning at Resurrection Sunday, we began the countdown to Pentecost. After His resurrection, over 40 days, Jesus began to show Himself to various groups and began to talk to them about the things of the Kingdom of God. At one point He appeared to about 500 people.  The 500 mines are speaking of this. During this counting of the Omer to Pentecost, don't miss this season. I believe it is a time for the secrets of the Kingdom to be revealed that have been reserved for such a time as this.Remember, that although 500 were told to wait, only 120 ended up receiving the incredible baptism promised at the appointed time. Expect another Pentecost outpouring. This Shavuot will be special.

This sign introduced an opening up on the planet. We will see the nations of the earth begin to emerge from their season of danger and fear. For those who continue to seek Him, new revelations of how to operate in this new era will emerge. Structures will shift and new wineskins will be made ready for the best wine ever. It's time.

Israel Speaks!

Thursday, March 26, 2020

A number of us just returned from Israel over the last few days after being on a prophetic journey in the Land which happened to coincide with the outbreak of the Coronovirus pandemic. 

Prior to that, we had done another journey during the month of November. During that trip, some of us visited the Knesset that was in the beginning of setting the date for a third election in Israel. Twice before, they had tried and failed to form a government, so the third set of elections were set for March 2, 2020. I remember at that time looking at the doors of the Knesset. If you have visited there, you may remember that there are three sets of double doors leading into the building. On our visit, two sets of doors were shut and the third set, on the left hand side were open. I remember saying that Israel reads from right to left. I believe the third try will result in the formation of a government. The doors are open for that. Following this,  on New Years eve, we began to declare that this next election in Israel would be a sign.  

So when we were in Israel during the month of March, everything seemed to be saying that it was impossible for a government to be formed. People were calling for a UNITY government, yet there was nothing but unity happening. Everyone was fighting to be on top, with no one winning. Then the pandemic struck and Benjamin Netanyahu took charge.

Meanwhile, we were going about the land before everything was shut down. Each time we have one of these prophetic journeys, we always take people to the site of Habakkuk's tomb. There is a gated community near there, with a large automated yellow steel gate locking them in. The first time I visited there, I read the scripture found in Habakkuk 2:3. "For the vision is yet for an appointed time. In the end, it will speak and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it. It will surely come, it will not be behind time on its appointed day". As soon as I finished declaring the scripture, that gate opened up! From that time forward, each time we as a prophetic team would visit the gate, it would always speak. 

This time, as our team who were visiting the Ancient Gates of Israel declaring Psalm 24, an amazing thing happened at that spot. The gate was open and remained open! We had never seen that before! Also, one of the prophetic signs that we had during the last couple of trips was that we kept seeing lime green cars wherever we went. The colour green speaks of new beginnings and prosperity. To our amazement, at the open time gate was a lime green car! We began to declare that we had entered into a new time zone!

As the pandemic increased in Israel, there was talk of delaying the change of the clocks because they wanted to discourage people from going outside.  Finally, it was determined that they would not do this, but the time change would take place this weekend between Friday and Saturday as usual (tomorrow night).  No one was going to stop the new time zone!  

Then today, on Nissan 1, the first day of the Biblical New Year, the opposition party in Israel began to disintegrate and a UNITY government will be formed in the next few hours. It felt like a dam had broken. Also, today, the United States government is in the midst of coming together in unity for a financial package to deal with the pandemic. In each case, it was the pandemic that drove the opposing sides together.

Psalm 133: Oh how good, how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in unity. It is like fragrant oil on the head that runs down over the beard, over the beard of Aaron and flows down on the collar of his robes.

On our very first prophetic journey in the land, we stood on March 11, 2017 at Rosh Pina, a site of an important revival in Israel and read this Psalm as a prophetic word for revival in Canada. That day was the 40th anniversary of the day that Bob Jones prophesied that Ichabod was over the church and would remain there for 40 years. We were in Israel in Rosh Pina at the exact end of the 40 years. People began to declare that Ichabod had come off the church.  Now, three years later, we began on March 11 where we left off, to declare the time gate for a new era has now opened up. A spirit of unity is being released on the earth. Unity will result in the oil of revival flowing. God will use anything, even a pandemic to begin to shift things in the earth. When He says it's time, it's time.

Welcome to the Roaring Twenties

January 13, 2020

Each year on New Year's Eve, the Tent of David comes together to seek the Lord for the corporate prophetic word for the coming year.  This year seemed particularly clear and aligned as each word seemed to dovetail with the last.  There were four main themes that we see for 2020:

  • A continuation of last year's word which emphasized signs and understanding time and timing
  • 2020 will be marked with clear vision and face to face encounters with God
  • It will be the beginning of an extended Joseph season
  • It will be known as the "Roaring Twenties"

 1.  During Elul as we prepared for Rosh Hashana and the year 5780, there was a sign as to the season to come.  Dan was in Israel and had begun an extended time of waiting before the Lord during the night.  After the first all-night session, he opened the cupboard door in the morning to find a glass plate had spontaneously shattered all inside the cupboard.  When this happens, we pay attention because shattering for us means an open heaven over what we were doing.  As Dan sought the Lord about this, the scripture came to him "For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face." I Corinthians 13.  He felt the Lord tell him that in this next season, we will begin to have face to face encounters with God in the secret place through intimacy.  What had been obscure before, would now become clear as God meets us face to face.  Expect this to happen in 2020. 

Geoff also had a word that 2020 would be a year of resolution where things would come into sharp focus as with 2020 vision.  With this face to face communication, a clear word of God will be given.  We will speak God words through anointed lips. We are to speak only the words we are given, nothing more, nothing less.  A key scripture for this year is Deuteronomy 12:32.  Whatever I command you, be watchful to do it; you shall not add to it or diminish it. The emphasis here was on being careful not to diminish the word that God had given you.  Our tendency is that when God delays on His promise for us to be tempted to downsize the word to fit our natural reasoning.  Do not do this in this season!  Continue to speak forth what He says!  We are in a fullness of time. 

 2.  With this "fullness of time" season, we will enter into a era marked with a Joseph mantle.  Just as Joseph could not enter into his destiny that his dreams foreshadowed, so this generation had to wait until the appointed time.  There is a suddenly moment for those who dream God's dreams where once they had prison clothes on, and in a moment, a cloak and signet ring of authority is given.  This is the season for the church to arise out of obscurity in governmental authority and moving in Godly wisdom. 

Twenty is a Joseph number.  He was sold for 20 pieces of silver, but reaped the unlimited blessing when heaven's time had come.  2020 speaks of double portion.  There will be a divine payback with people being set free into kingdom prosperity this season.  There is much to be learned in the life of Joseph.  Karen was given Psalm 105 as a key scripture for this year.  For those who have allowed God to purge their character in this preparation season, there is much to be apprehended. Canada is a Joseph nation.  In her quiet, unassuming manner, God has been preparing her for a season of great favour.  There was a sign in Israel of this time for Canada.  Four years ago, Stephen Harper was honored there for his strong clear voice for that nation.  Israel decided to dedicate a new building in the Hula Valley bird sanctuary to our former Prime Minister.  But, as with Joseph, delay after delay seemed to be preventing this from completion.  

This November, while in Israel, Dale decided to go with a friend to see the building.  To their surprise, there was  tape across the entry path to it.  Dale felt compelled to cross the tape and try to go in.  There were workmen in the building and the supervisor attempted to stop her.  When she explained that she was Canadian and would like to have a look around, the doors were opened and they were welcomed in!  There was a flurry of activity there and they discovered that 3 days later Stephen Harper was coming to officially open the beautiful structure!  In the foyer of the building was a huge globe of the world.  You may not know this, but Stephen Harper's middle name is Joseph.  So, on the doorstep of 2020, a Joseph from Canada marked by delay, was having his moment.  And Canadians were given entry and favour at a time when others were barred from going in.  Canada would do well to recognize her time of favour and understand that it is linked to her relationship with Israel.  Like Joseph, Stephen Harper had a quiet authority but his roar was heard around the world when the time was right. Canada is destined to come forth in authority cloaked in humility.  This is your season of favour Canada.  Step into it. We have been in a season of shackles and purging until the appointed time.  (Psalm 105: 17-19)  The church's assignment is to bring this forth.

 3.  Just as Joseph entered into his destiny in a time of harvest and bounty, 2020 will see the beginning of a prolonged season of prosperity and harvest.  One hundred years ago a decade called "the Roaring 20's"  began. Coming out of years of war and devastation in the world, suddenly all was different.  It was marked by a time of unparalleled prosperity and great advancement.  In 2020 we will see the wealth of the wicked stored up for the righteous being released in magnificent, unheard of ways.  In the last month, we have had testimonies of people receiving money from unexplained sources and by surprise.  Expect this to happen!  Use your mouth to declare this over your life!

The twenties also roared forth with an explosion of arts, theatre and new music.  People began to dance to a free-form type of music called jazz and there was a sense of release from the dreariness of war.  Expect the Kingdom of God to break through in these areas and see God  use people in the arts and entertainment world in greater measure this year.  It was also marked by movement where suddenly not only the rich owned cars, but the common family.  There is going to be great release around the globe as nations once held in bondage are set free to move.  Someone on New Year's eve felt a tremendous internal shaking as we worshiped.  There will be a shaking in the Muslim world this year like never before.  The kingdom of God is breaking out! 

Just recently there was a sign in Israel concerning this.  A year and a half ago the Tent of David moved to a town on the northwest coast called Nahariya.  The name Nahariya means "River of God".  Since then we have been pressing for the river of God to flow in the north of Israel.  Just last week, a tremendous downfall of rain caused the town to flood!  The entire main street became like a wide river as the small stream that flows down the middle of that street could not contain the flood of rain that fell.  We have been declaring Psalm 65: 9:  The river of God is full of water!" since we moved there.  In the dry season, the stream would be at most a trickle.  But when the rain came, it overflowed its banks.  We are entering into a season of the river of God!  It is full of water!  When the Joseph season came in, there was so much plenty the world flocked to get some of it.  The church would do well to understand that Godly wisdom is needed to know how to steward what God puts in our hands.

 Many have understood that we have moved from the 5770-79 decade of the AYIN or "eye" to the 5780-89 decade of PEY or "mouth".  During the last decade we have trained our spiritual eyes to see what God is saying.  In this new decade we will begin to say what we see.  It is very important as we begin 2020 to begin to declare what God reveals and to be careful to say only that.  Once again, we must not add to it or diminish it.  If you have held onto dreams that God gave you in the last season, now is the time to declare it and step into it.  As with Joseph, this is the season of prophetic dreams that will give strategy to the church. We have come to a fullness of time.  Make no mistake.  As we cross over into our inheritance, we are entering into a time of continual warfare, but marked with continual victory as we obey and declare His voice. 

 At the end of our prophetic watch on New Year's eve, we were all given yellow ribbons to place on the Christmas tree that was on the platform.  As we played Noel Richard's song "Dreamers of Your Dreams" we did this as an act of declaration that, like Joseph, we were stepping into God's dreams for us and for our nation.  At the beginning of these "Roaring Twenties", let the Lion of Judah roar and let the Kingdom of God advance in the earth!
