The Big Prophetic Picture: Part 1
Feb 10, 2006
Sometimes we get so bogged down in details, we lose sight of the bigger picture. This can also be a problem when we speak of current events--important as they are to current understanding. So let us look briefly at the bigger picture to see where are now in the year 2006.
If you have read my lengthy book, "Secrets of Time," or even the smaller book, "The Wheat and Asses of Pentecost," you will see that the Age of Pentecost was prophesied to last 40 Jubilees. A Jubilee cycle is 49 years, or 7 Land-rest years. So 40 x 49 = 1,960 years.
Dating from the beginning of Pentecost in 33 A.D., as described in the second chapter of Acts, the 40 Jubilees of Pentecost ended in 1993. Since that time we have been transitioning into an entirely new anointing that is based upon--and prophesied by--the Feast of Tabernacles, the third great Feast of Israel.
King Saul of the Old Testament is the primary pattern of Church under Pentecost, because he was crowned king of Israel on the day of Pentecost (i.e., the feast of weeks, also called the day of wheat harvest in 1 Sam. 12:17). He reigned 40 years, which was a type of the 40 Jubilees of Pentecost. Then he died, and David began to reign. David is a type of king under the greater anointing of Tabernacles.
But David only ruled the tribe of Judah for the first seven years and six months, because the son of Saul ruled Israel for two years, and when he was assassinated, there was no king in Israel for 5 1/2 years. Finally, representatives of all the tribes came to David and crowned him king over all Israel.
I believe this is a prophetic pattern of a 7 1/2 year transition from Saul to David in our own day--that is, from Pentecost to Tabernacles. It extended from May 30, 1993 (Pentecost of that year) to Nov. 30, 2000.
Shortly after this date passed, God began to reveal many thing to teach us how to exercise the spiritual authority suitable for a Tabernacles Age (David's reign). Throughout 2001 we engaged in much spiritual warfare, which found an interesting culmination on July 11, 2001, when I wrote in my notes for that day: "Today America is attacked."
I was referring to a spiritual attack, of course, but yet we all knew that things happen in the spirit before they occur on earth. Thus, we knew that there was an impending attack on America in the earth. But when?
An old revelation from 1980 has been relevant every year: "July is like September." Thus, every year I keep a log of spiritual events in July and watch for some corresponding earthly event in September. Thus, July 11, 2001 is like September 11, 2001.
On 9-11-01, of course, the Twin Towers were brought down, and the headlines screamed, "America Attacked." While the specific event was a surprise to us, the attack itself and the date it occured was not a surprise at all.
This event plunged us into war, first in Afgahnistan, then in Iraq, and soon, perhaps in Iran or even Syria. While certain men no doubt thought this attack was THEIR idea, it did not take God by surprise. In fact, God is using it for His purpose, and no man can thwart His divine plan, regardless of how they attempt to manipulate this war to serve their own agendas.
In our next web log, I will share with you a vision and spiritual event that I experienced in March 1986 which showed me that the United States would be involved in TWO GULF WARS. The first, of course, was in 1990; we are now in the second. I was shown the basic divine purpose and end of both, and whether or not other people believe it, I do. Each detail has been confirmed by history. All that remains to be fulfilled is the final outcome of Gulf War II.
