We seldom, and for some never, recognize intercession when it takes place; but you can be MOST assured that Satan recognizes it. Through intercession he received the rights to 2,000 years of Christianity by getting Yahshua to cast Legion into 2,000 swine. And when he asked Yahshua to turn the stones into bread, he was in fact trying to deceive Him to do something that would have given him unlimited authority to destroy the church. But Yahshua knew his wiles and would not grant him that legal right. Stones speak of wrathful judgment, and Satan was wanting Yahshua to turn stones into bread as an intercession that He would resort to wrath in the wilderness period of the church. Satan’s ploy here was an entirely legal matter that could be effected by intercession. When Yahshua went into the wilderness for forty days, He had intercessorally entered into the forty Jubilee, 2,000 year, period of the church where Satan rules. If Satan could have caused Yahshua to error in His intercession, he would have obtained the legal right for this unlimited judgment. But Yahshua did not fail, and overcame Satan. This is the authority this man has today – to cut short Satan’s work. It is the authority that comes as well through intercession, by seeing truth and receiving from Yahweh’s head.
We as mere men do not see things the way Yahweh sees them. We are so given to moral judgments and having moral goals, that we are blinded to seeing the larger picture of what He is doing. We are short sighted and even blind; and by looking at things only morally, we do not even see them prophetically or intercessorally or legally. But these are the realms in which Yahweh functions most, and we thus totally miss what He is doing. But today He is opening our eyes to see. He is giving us His head, His truth. The breach period of Christianity where He has hidden the church in the cleft of the rock with His hand over it so that it cannot see, is complete. He is now removing His hand and we are seeing His back – what He has done. And His deeds are marvelous to behold! His mercy is everlasting and His truth endures forever. Blessed be the name of Yahweh!
The purpose of this writing has been to reveal the wonders of intercession; and in so doing, to reveal the mysteries of the kingdom of God that have thus far been sealed up. But there is another reason for this writing, and that is to make me naked before you. As were the other costly and painful intercessions which you have read about here, this writing in itself is an intercession. I had to become naked. Why? I had to identify. I had to identify with Yahshua, who was stripped and made naked. I had to identify with the body of Christ, that, as we have seen regarding the little horn and the “buttocks,” is naked as well. I had to identify with the Father, who is making Himself naked for our sake as well. Let us consider with new eyes that see, a clear and revealing living prophesy, a parable, regarding the church and its nakedness.
Yahshua and His disciples sailed to the country of the Gerasenes. Immediately, two men (according to Matthew 8:28) met Yahshua. They were possessed by an unclean spirit; and, as we read in Luke 8:27, “had not put on any clothing for a long time, and (were) not living in a house, but in the tombs.” Yahshua commanded the unclean spirit to come out of them, and it went into 2,000 swine (Mark 5:13), which all ran down the steep bank and into the sea and died. The two men, now in their right minds, were then clothed.
Hearing about this in the city, the people came out and entreated Yahshua to leave. As He prepared to go, the two men/man entreated Him to go with Him, but Yahshua answered – “Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you” (Mark 5:19). The men/man then went to Decapolis and proclaimed what great things Yahshua had done.
Now for the interpretation of this living parable. It in fact tells two stories at one time, both united into one, both relating to a work that is separated into two. Yahshua came to this earth and, as we read in Matthew 12:43-45 and Luke 11:24-26, swept the house of God, the kingdom, clean – He cast out Legion. But Satan received a legal right from this event/intercession, and that was to go into 2,000 swine, or 2,000 years of Christianity. When Yahshua came the first time, could kingdom man go with Him when He left? No, for kingdom man had to be sent out into the world to tell of His mercy and His goodness. Decapolis means “ten cities,” and even as Abraham was promised ten nations (Genesis 15:18-21), so this speaks of being sent to the nations of the world. When Yahshua left, Christianity was thus sent to the nations.
But we also read in the parable regarding the house that was swept clean, that the demon returns, “finds it unoccupied (the Master who swept it clean has gone), swept, and put in order,” and goes and “takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there, and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.” Seven is the mark of the beast, and this is precisely what happened to the kingdom of God which Yahshua swept clean and left with man; and certainly when one looks at the harlotry of the church today, the last state has become worse than the first. What is Yahshua to do? He is to return to Gerasan and recleanse the house. Here is when we now see the same living parable telling the same story, but it will be fulfilled in a different yet similar way.
Yahshua will return and complete His work, but first He comes in another golden rod. Like the two men we see in this living parable, Christians are possessed by an unclean spirit, even seven spirits now, have “not put on any clothing for a long time, and (are) not living in a house, but in the tombs.” As we find once again so clearly revealed, Christians are naked, and have not had “any clothing for a long time.” And instead of living in the house that Yahweh has planned for them, they are living in tombs, both literally and figuratively. Zechariah 13:8 tells us that for 2,000 years, Christians will be cut off from the kingdom and die. These are the two men uniquely attested to in Matthew. With 2,000 years of death in the kingdom, most Christians are literally in tombs and are not at home. But even figuratively, Christians live among the dead in far more ways than we are aware or can even know.
And once again, this time when the Bride is taken out, Christians, who will now be legally delivered, will not be allowed to ascend alive and will be told – “Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.” Christians will be sent to Decapolis, to the nations, once again, but this time with the pure truth – the fire work, even as clearly stated in Zechariah 13:9. As we have seen evidenced in this writing, Yahweh will have mercy on them.
This nakedness of Christianity is the very reason Yahweh is causing this man to become naked before you. One has no authority to deliver someone, unless they become like them. Thus, as an intercessor for the body of Christ that lives among the tombs and is naked, I have had to become naked (and have died as well).
But there is more to this nakedness. The very fact that this man is becoming naked before you in this writing, also tells us that Yahweh is indeed preparing to give us His shemen. To release shemen, the golden rod must first become naked and exposed. As Rod McKuen said, “You can’t really live, until you make yourself vulnerable.” This man has most assuredly made himself vulnerable. And it is quite fitting that these unforgettable words declared so many years ago that have spoken so clearly in my life, came from a man whose name is Rod – Rod McKuen!
We will conclude this writing with the account of King David as he sought to return the ark of the covenant after it had been away for so very long (2 Samuel 6 and 1 Chronicles 13 and 15). Prophetically, this is where we are at this time. It is time for Yahweh’s presence, His glory, to return to its rightful place in the Remnant, the second Remnant.
But before His presence could return, this man and the second Remnant have had to identify with Christianity and fail, even as David failed in his first attempt to return the ark. While the ark was returning, Uzza extended his hand to steady it and Yahweh became angry and struck him dead “for his irreverence.” David then became angry “because of Yahweh’s (lit.) breach (perez) against Uzza; and he called that place Perez-uzza to this day.” The procession ceased and the ark remained in the house of Obed-edom (meaning, “servant of Edom”) for three months.
Do you see what is being revealed here? “That which has been is that which will be.” For 2,000 years, kingdom men have been smitten dead for touching the ark of Yahweh in their irreverence, and have failed to effect the return of Yahweh’s presence and glory. And it would be for 3,000 years, even the “three months” testified here, if Yahweh does not cut those days short. And what is the cause for this delay? Because kingdom man has had to try in the strength of the flesh. “Uzza” means “strength,” and he is a picture of our failure as flesh men. And what has this failure caused? A BREACH in the kingdom – Perez-uzza, the “breach of strength”! This is the 3,000 year breach of Uzza Christianity in which kingdom men have had to labor in their own strength, and must be cut short to 2,000 years.
And as has been noted in this writing, this man has had to identify in every way with Christianity, including the testimony of Uzza. Despite my many efforts, and the efforts of others who have embraced the Remnant Bride truth, our work thus far has equally been an Uzza. This was not wrong though, in fact it was essential, an intercession, for it was necessary that we identify with Christianity and fail.
In the writing, The Hope of the Remnant in 2004, we point out that we should have received our promise in 2003, but we did not. Now it is time for Yahweh to perform that which we have attempted, but have failed to accomplish, and still would not accomplish without His intervention. Everything indicates that this fulfillment will begin in the ninth year since 1996, the year of fulfillment – 2004. (Also read All’s Well That Ends Well.)
We read here that David became very angry because of Uzza’s death. I too at one time became very angry with Yahweh, and in much regard for the same reason – Uzza’s death, the death of my own strength – and I let Him know of my anger! After all of this failure, and with my failure in a court action over the separation (that would have destroyed me if it had not been overturned), I came to my end. Since coming to Yahshua in 1971, I gave up cursing; but on that day, I could not take any more and, like David, I was very angry. I did more than call a place Perez-uzza. I cursed more in thirty minutes, even in two minutes, than I had cursed in thirty years. I became an angry David, and Yahweh heard from me!
Today, once again I have identified with David. We read in 2 Samuel 6:14 that when the ark of the covenant was returning, “David was dancing before Yahweh with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod.” Based on David’s wife’s comment regarding this, what he was wearing was rather scanty – “How the king of Israel distinguished himself today! He uncovered himself today in the eyes of his servants’ maids as one of the foolish ones shamelessly uncovers himself!” Most say that what David wore was little more than a linen loin cloth.
Why? Why did David do this? Because it looked to the day when the presence of Yahweh would return to the second Remnant and a man would have to identify with Christianity and become naked, even “shamelessly uncover himself.” Such this man has had to do for your sake. I have become naked.
Yahweh is using the foolish to shame the wise. Have you seen the movie, “K-PAX”? Kyle told me about it and I bought it. I never watch movies unless they prophesy; and this one does. I cannot go into all the prophetic revelations of this movie, but it is filled with prophecy, including this.
The movie takes place in a mental asylum. Prot, the main character, told a resident by the name of Howie, that if he wanted to be cured, he needed to find the bluebird of happiness. Howie began endlessly watching out the window for the bluebird. Eventually, he saw a blue jay, and he and the entire asylum soon erupted into boundless excitement. That night, a lonely and withdrawn lady named Bess came to Prot and said – “I know who you are. You’re the bluebird.” Later, she ascended alive with him as a prophetic picture of the ascension of the Bride with the Mordecai. “Bess” is a short form of Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, the Elijah. What do we find in this? Let us see.
Perform a search on the web regarding this passage about David dancing, or attend some of the many Charismatic churches, and you will find people “dancing before the Lord like David.” But what are they really doing? They are looking for the natural fulfillment and not the spiritual, the flesh work and not the Jerusalem above work. Like Howie in the asylum who devoutly stared out the window for the bluebird, they are focused on the natural and thus fail to see the true spiritual. There is one who is fulfilling this verse, he is the bluebird, even the one with the blue tassels that were received from Judah. But Christians are Howies, even carnal Uzzas, and their efforts will not succeed. They will not ascend.
This conflict just described regarding David dancing before Yahweh in an unseemly way, is the test of Carmel between Christianity and the Remnant, the test of who will ascend alive as a burnt offering, a test that Christianity has been losing since 1948, and will continue to lose. All of their efforts are the demonstrative acts of the prophets of Baal, and they will not call down the fire from heaven to consume their offering; neither will they bring the ark’s return; their efforts are all in vain. Their efforts are masturbations – pleasurable, but never able to bring forth offspring. They will fail, because they are efforts from below, that rise up from the earth, and not from above.
This movie has so many incredibly prophetic messages. Howie, who is a picture of Christianity, wore very thick glasses. Like the first Remnant and Christianity, he was a Leah, who had weak eyes. Howie was given three tasks to perform; the final task was given to him just before Prot ascended alive with Bess. Just as we saw in the testimony regarding Gerasene Christianity, Prot’s final instruction to Howie Christianity was – “To stay here; and be prepared, for anything.”
One of the reasons Prot came was to turn the heart of the doctor to his son, and his son to his father – the Elijah work. The doctor’s name was none other than Mark, the same name of the brother-in-law in “Field of Dreams” (an equally prophetic movie), who could not see either. Both of these men are Mark Christianity, and both needed desperate intervention in order to see. And as Kyle expressed, the co-star in the movie is “light.” Perez’s brother was Zerah, which means “light.” Likewise, second Remnant “Luke” means “light.” All five of my children’s middle names mean “light.” Mount St. Helens is actually Mount St. “Light.” The “light” is the second Remnant who will, like Prot and Bess, ascend alive at an appointed and known time.
But the Prot that you saw was really not Prot, but he was Robert, a man who, after discovering the death of his wife, Sarah, and his daughter, Rebekah, killed the one who slew them (a transient by the name of Walker – the one who walks to and fro like a roaring lion, seeking whom he can devour) by breaking his neck (even as Eli’s neck was broken, or the neck of the unredeemed donkey was broken – Satan-occupied Christianity) and then went to a river, stripped himself naked, and entered into it. There in that river, the one who has the power to cause Bess to ascend alive, entered into him. Robert then became Prot, the earthly prot-otype of man when he becomes born from above. This is the river of the latter rain into which this man will jump. And, this is the river that comes, now that this man has made himself naked.
When Prot related to the doctor this account concerning Robert, and more specifically when he told about Robert going into the river, he spoke a very prophetic and revealing statement that applies to our time today when we need for Yahweh to cut our days short, lest no life be saved (Mark 13:20). His statement that immediately preceded Robert’s plunge was – “Time is running out for everyone.”
Do you think I am foolish in all of this? So did David’s wife, Michal, who was the daughter of Saul. Unmistakably, Saul is Christianity, the one who was made king before his time, and whose coronation was interrupted by a great and fearful rain that revealed their wickedness! David’s response to Christianity Michal is a most fitting and revealing answer to any who have a like objection to this man and what he is saying – “It is before Yahweh, who chose me above your father and above all his house (of Christianity), to appoint me ruler over the people of Yahweh, over Israel; therefore I will celebrate before Yahweh. And I will be more lightly esteemed than this and will be humble in my own eyes, but with the maids of whom you have spoken (the Bride), with them I will be distinguished.”
One of the things that Yahweh has given to the Bride is an understanding of His mysteries, even His riddles. We now close with this contradiction riddle.
Why does 2 Samuel 6:14 and 20 say that David wore nothing more than a scant ephod, while in contrast 1 Chronicles 15:27 says that he wore a complete robe? Do you know the answer to the riddle? If you know the answer, you too will ascend alive; if not, you will have to touch the head of the golden rod.
Both are true, David is both naked and clothed in a robe. That is why there must be the two contradicting accounts – to tell the complete story. As is explained in The Key To Their Understanding, Kings speaks of or reveals Christianity, and Chronicles speaks of or reveals the Remnant. In Kings, David is naked before Yahweh, even as Christianity is naked before Him when His presence and glory returns to the second Remnant, and even as this man has had to become naked for the body’s sake. But in Chronicles, David is clothed in a robe, even as the priests were so covered. The Remnant Bride will be covered and not naked at the return of Yahweh’s presence and glory.
Thus, this man is both. I am naked before you as an intercession for naked Christianity, but I wear a robe of the priest as the Remnant Bride. Both are true, once again requiring a higher dimension to make the impossible become possible.
