RETURN OF THE RAVEN
(Following is a select portion of the first section of this writing.)
In the latter 70’s I realized through a related study that there had to be twelve areas of the soul of a man. For two years I studied everything I could from the Scriptures in order to find some indication what those twelve areas were, but all to no avail. Then one day as I sat at my desk at home, I spoke to the Holy Spirit – “Holy Spirit, the Scriptures say that my spirit knows my innermost being (Proverbs 20:27, 1 Corinthians 2:11). Would you send my spirit into my soul and have it report back to me its twelve areas?”
No more had I prayed this than, what I had studied and searched to know for two years, freely began coming to me. Like pieces of wood with writing on them floating to the surface from an unreachable depth, word by word the areas of my soul came to my consciousness. As they came, I wrote them down. As soon as I wrote one down, another came, then another. Soon I realized they were falling into three categories – mind, will, and emotions – and as they came up randomly, I recorded them in each respective category. I will give you eleven of them now.
Each of these was later given a specific definition. But when the eleventh area was reported to me, the twelfth was then given to me in a completely different way. Yahweh did not allow my spirit to provide the twelfth and final area of my soul, but He Himself spoke it to me – *Attitude!
There seem to be at least two reasons why He made this distinction regarding the twelfth. One, because one’s attitude wholly impacts all the other areas of one’s soul, as well as everything one does or attempts to do in life. Attitude is critical! Failure and success is determined by attitude. Second, and related to this, even as the twelve apostles had one member critically different from the others, so it is true with the twelve areas of one’s soul. That twelfth apostle was Judas, who is always listed twelfth when the apostles are named, and whose place was taken by Satan. Of course what makes him and his office particularly unique, is that his office is vacated by Satan and is filled once again by a man in this day, thus legally repairing the 2,000 year breach in the church.
One of the outstanding qualities of the Remnant Bride is its seamless garment of truth; and this truth is not just vaguely repeated, but is clearly replicable. And this is certainly the case here with the testimony of the uniqueness of the position of the twelfth apostle, for we see this pattern elsewhere. It will be worthwhile to briefly digress on this.
Where else do we see Yahweh choosing twelve? First, He set up the twelve tribes. And of the twelve, did He not also set one of them apart for a very special purpose? Indeed He did, for in Numbers 3:11-13, 44-51 He set the tribe of Levi apart to be the payment for preserving alive all the firstborn per the tenth plague upon Egypt. These became the priests who ministered to Yahweh. Likewise, when Yahweh commanded Moses to send out the twelve to spy out the land of Canaan, once again there was one who was unique from the other eleven. Who was it? It was Caleb.
In Numbers 13:6 we read that Caleb was the leader who was sent out for the tribe of Judah. But Caleb was unique from the others for several reasons, first in that he was a mix – his father was a Kenizzite (Numbers 32:12 and Joshua 14:6), who were descendants of Esau (Genesis 36:11, 42). Also, the meaning of his name is quite unique. “Caleb” means “dog.” Thus, the two remaining witnesses who entered into the promised land west of the Jordan, Joshua and Caleb, by the meaning of their names were – Yahweh-savior and dog.
Caleb is further unique in that, as we find stated in Deuteronomy 1:34-40 (39), of those who ate from the tree of the “knowledge of good and evil,” he and Joshua alone entered the promised land west of the Jordan (i.e., the two Remnant coming out of Christianity). In fact, it was Caleb who first spoke up and gave the good report about entering into the land of promise (Numbers 13:30). For this Yahweh declared – “But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it” (Numbers 14:24).
Quite interestingly, the place of Yahshua’s birth, Bethlehem, was formerly called Ephrathah. Bethlehem was founded by Salma, the grandson of Caleb. Caleb’s wife and grandmother of Salma was Ephrathah (1 Chronicles 2:50-51). Thus, Bethlehem Ephrathah, the place of Yahshua’s birth, was founded by the household of Caleb, and appears to have been named after Caleb’s wife.
And what land did indeed Yahweh give to Caleb? He gave him the land which his foot had trodden upon as a spy, and Caleb had traveled to the very burial cave of the patriarchs at Hebron (Numbers 13:22, Genesis 49:29-32, Joshua 14:9-15). Thus, Caleb was given Hebron, which also became a city of refuge (Joshua 21:11-12), and was King David’s original capital (2 Samuel 2:1-3, 11). Therefore we see the highly unique place Caleb had as a leader of the sons of Israel.
What can these two testimonies regarding Levi and Caleb add to our understanding concerning the twelfth apostle? Each prophetic testimony brings different truth, but first you will notice that the Levites did not keep their promised priesthood forever. It was given to another, to the tribe of Judah (Hebrews 7:11-25). Equally, Satan’s role as the twelfth apostle, even the “covering cherub,” will not remain. On the other hand, Caleb looks to the preservation of the right of the twelfth apostle to be fulfilled in the Millennial reign, wherein the covenant is with the patriarchs of the church, the first Remnant.
Finally, we see in this seamless garment of truth regarding the replicable pattern of the twelfth apostle, which is in fact the place of the Elijah ministry (Love of Money, page 14), yet another testimony. When Elijah came to place his mantle on Elisha, what was Elisha doing at the time? The answer is obviously governmentally and prophetically quite revealing. In 1 Kings 19:19 we read that he was “plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth.” Thus, when the man who reveals the office of the twelfth apostle went to place his mantle upon Elisha, he was plowing with the twelfth oxen! Is this not a clear and revealing testimony regarding the identity of this vital office? Absolutely!
Therefore, as evidenced by the Levites, by Caleb, by Elisha, and by Judas, the twelfth place is critical; and thus Yahweh would not allow my spirit to reveal the identity of the twelfth area of my soul, but spoke it directly to me.

(This completes the relevant portion in the first section of this writing; let us now go to the next section and once again look at an important part of it as well.)
This brings up a most important matter that should be added. The one subject about which Yahweh has given the most writings, is that of selling all (six writings at this time), the instruction Yahshua taught regarding becoming His disciple (Luke 14:33). We will not repeat the necessity for this, but will instead see how this works governmentally.
In this movie, we see Jack becoming cursed by the coin. This is precisely what we saw with the original twelfth apostle, Judas. We read in John 12:6 and 13:29 that Judas carried the money box. What about the rest of the disciples? They had left everything, even as we read in Peter’s statement in Matthew 19:27-29. Thus it was Judas who took the blow for continuing to gather money. He was therefore, in a sense, the scapegoat for continuing in finances.
Today, when the Bride is led of Yahweh to equally sell all, there is actually only one office that can touch that money without paying the price that Judas paid – the office he vacated. By Yahweh placing a man in that office today, he stands in the place of a dead man, is thus legally dead himself, comes under the covering of that office, and is thus immune from death due to the curse of money. Legally, he is the only one who can be immune from the consequences of bearing money; therefore, Yahweh has provided a legal way of escape for the Bride who must give up everything. This is another vital and critical truth regarding the twelfth apostle.
Furthermore, and this is well worth our examination here, Judas’ right to the money box set up an incredible scenario for the future. How so? In Proverbs 13:22 we read that “the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.” This raises a very important question – How can this transfer be legally carried out?
Yahweh is Law, and Satan uses the Law to his own gain and purposes; and in order to transfer the wealth from one party to another, from the sinner to the righteous, that transfer, of necessity, must be done legally. Can you offer how this legal transfer can take place? Watch and you will see. This is quite amazing!
According to Yahweh’s divine order, Judas held the money box of the Son of God. But he relinquished his office to Satan, to whom it rightfully belonged (John 6:70). Therefore when Satan received that office, he received the moneybox that went with it. So how much did Satan have that he would now add to that box? When Yahshua was being tempted by Satan in the wilderness, we read that he offered Him “all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory” (Matthew 4:8). While Yahshua turned this down, the fact is that it will indeed be turned over to the righteous. How? Legally, by once again transferring that office to another – the latter rain twelfth apostle.
By giving Satan the office of Judas, the treasurer, all that he possessed went into that treasury via the office; so in order to give the wealth of this world to the righteous, all Yahweh had to then do was transfer that office to another, to the twelfth apostle, and all the wealth possessed by that office was then legally transferred. It’s the trail of the money box, and in the end it leads to the second Remnant. Satan thought he was gaining a great deal by occupying that place; but in reality he was being set up for legally transferring all he had to the righteous Remnant.
And how many elders are there around the throne? Is it just by happenstance that there are likewise twenty-four?
And where do the twenty-four elders sit? Do they not encompass the throne? Yes indeed (Revelation 4:4-5). And who sits on that throne? Is it not Yahshua? Yes it is, along with the testimony of the Holy Spirit – “seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.” Thus we have in this heavenly scene – Yahshua and the Holy Spirit, encompassed about by the twenty-four elders.
Now, is this not the testimony that Yahweh sets forth in the human body – the heart (Yahshua) and the lungs (the Holy Spirit), encompassed about by the twenty-four ribs (elders)? Indeed!
By establishing this heavenly work here on earth, Yahweh fulfills on one level that which is written in Jeremiah 31:22 – “For Yahweh has created a new thing in the earth – a woman (ribs) will encompass a man (Yahshua).” In reality the new thing He creates is a soul work (the soul has twelve areas), a redeemed man work, on the earth. This is what He began 2,000 years ago, and what He will now complete. (And might we also simply point out here, this is the soul work revealed in Revelation 12 where we see the woman with a crown of twelve stars and the moon, the lesser light, under her feet [kingdom rights].)
Now that you see this incredible and clearly undeniable testimony, let us ask another MOST revealing and important question. Knowing that the twenty-four ribs represent the twenty-four elders around the throne, what then was the significance when Yahweh took one rib from Adam and fashioned the woman, the bride? What did Yahweh in fact take? Clearly, He took one of the twenty-four elders and made a bride! Do you see the truth of what Yahweh was saying by taking a rib to form a bride? He was foreshadowing that He would take one of the twenty four elders, the twelfth apostle, and form the Bride, precisely what we have been seeing and revealing here since 2002. Could anything be clearer, or more exciting?
And briefly added for the informed, for we cannot but mention this, you will recall that when Rizpah sat on the rock with sackcloth from barley harvest until Yahweh poured out water from heaven on her, David saw her and thereby went and got the bones of Saul and Jonathan and buried them in Zela (2 Samuel 21). Bones represent government/authority, and as we have seen many times, Saul clearly represents Christianity. So where did the governmental authority of Christianity go when David transferred these bones per the intercession of Rizpah? The name “Zela” means “rib”! Thus we see clearly attested here that the governmental authority of Christianity is given to the “rib,” the twelfth apostle that is taken out to form the Bride.
Who then is this man, this twelfth apostle? He is equally Louie, who by a sovereign miracle finds the window of the Bride and calls out to her, thereby identifying her as the Bride. My purpose as Louie, even as the “sharp spear” (the meaning of “Gary”), is to reveal the Bride, even to form the Bride. (Quite interestingly, the name “Cain,” the father of the Kenites, including the Rechabites, Moses’ wife, and Jael, equally means “spear.”) I am the raven possessing the three-and-a-half year ministry period of the second golden rod, but have been in captivity/bondage in Christianity and have had dung on me and my feathers tattered; but I pass through the window of your understanding and you receive me, thereby equally becoming like me. I am the raven, the captain of the Black Pearl, and those whose heart is as mine will join me and become that pearl of great value.
