TABERNACLES PENTECOST, 2005
THE STRONG MESSENGER
In Revelation 10:1-7 we read:
I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his head, and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire; and he had in his hand a little book which was open. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left on the land; and he cried out with a great voice, as when a lion roars; and when he had cried out, the seven peals of thunder uttered their voices.
When the seven peals of thunder had spoken, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Seal up the things which the seven peals of thunder have spoken and do not write them."
Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, WHO CREATED HEAVEN AND THE THINGS IN IT, AND THE EARTH AND THE THINGS IN IT, AND THE SEA AND THE THINGS IN IT, that there will be delay no longer; but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets.
This angel was:
In all regards, this angel/messenger was an intercessor. The rainbow on his head speaks of reversing the curse; and as an intercessor, he had one foot on the sea of death, and one on the land. That is intercession/identification. And, the seven peals of thunder were not recorded. These are like unto the sons of thunder who wanted to call down fire from heaven; and neither did the Son of God allow their words to be recorded, or in other words, come into effect (Luke 9:51-56). We know that it is the Elijah work that averts the great and terrible day of Yahweh (Malachi 4:5-6), and this is what we see here. And of course “Malachi” means “My messenger,” the root thereof being the same Hebrew word used for “angel.” “Messenger” and “angel” are the same Hebrew word, which is equally true in the Greek as well.
This is also the messenger who holds an open book that is sweet as honey to the mouth, but bitter to the stomach (Revelation 10:8-11). This is the Remnant truth that has been so very sweet as honey to the mouth, but oh so bitter to the stomach!
And most importantly, the little book is open. The twelfth apostle with the Bride have the authority to unseal the Scriptures and understand things that have never before been understood. For this reason, as it is written here, in the days of the voice of this messenger “the mystery of God is finished.” The mystery of what Yahweh has been doing has come to an end as we see these wonderful truths. The Bride is seeing Yahweh’s back (Exodus 33:17-23).
In like regard, the face of this messenger is like the sun; it emanates truth, which the face speaks of. This is the issue in Exodus 33:20 as well. It is seeing Yahweh’s truth, His face, even as He spoke to Moses face to face, and after his eighth and final trip up Sinai his face was equally like the sun.
On the day before Tabernacles Pentecost, we saw something regarding this messenger that was very encouraging and enlightening. Before sharing this, let us consider something that I also found recorded in my journal. On October 21, 1981, I wrote the following – “If you’re not willing to experience the scriptures, then you will never learn the scriptures.”
Most people are not willing to experience the scriptures, for to do so is too costly, even as the little book was costly and very bitter to eat. Most are not willing to experience such passages that state – “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22). But if we are to experience the first resurrection, then we must be willing to experience the death and burial process. Christianity today offers the easy way, the broad way, and for this reason it continues to lead them to death, the sea of death.
If you read the writings at The Remnant Bride that were published from 2001 through 2003, you will find much incredible truth and revelation, but with it much disappointment and sorrow and perseverance. Attempting to be brief, let us recount some of the significant events during that time.
In 2001 there were four of us who gathered for Passover, and in that gathering we identified ourselves as “the four lepers,” after the four in 2 Kings 7. Of course these original four men in their desperation went to the camp of the Syrians, and there discovered that their enemy had abandoned everything and the spoils were theirs to take. Also in that first ever gathering of the Bride at a concert involving my daughter, Grace, an angel (so it appeared) came and prayed behind us, and Kyle received a stigmata, a bruise in his side (May Passover, 2001, Report).
In 2002, as we approached our second Passover gathering, Yahweh began to show us the truth regarding the test of Carmel. In this regard, we were expecting that 450 would come into the Remnant Bride. Furthermore, based on the testimony of tithing and those who had responded, it seemed evident that Yahweh was going to assemble the latter rain twelve apostles. We also expected that Yahshua would personally come into our midst. Were all of these things farfetched? Only in the natural they were; but we were going by what we saw evidenced in the Scriptures and in history and how Yahweh was leading us.
When we came together for Passover that year, we began to understand that Yahweh was leading us through a nine day intercession, corresponding to the days of creation, Moses’ eight trips up Mount Sinai and Elijah’s ninth, the seven Presidents who died in office every twenty years and the reverse of that curse with the eighth and ninth, and the days of the Feast. You can read about this in the writing, 2002 Passover Report. The first two days were exceptionally difficult for this man; in fact, I wanted to flee, to escape! It was in the third day that Yahweh showed me the truth, the pattern, of the nine days. On the eighth day when we went to watch Grace at another concert, we experienced the incredible testimony of literally driving through the tops of two rainbows where the mist was like jewel dust sparkling all around us. And as reported in A Lesson From Intercession, page 5, we came to realize that Yahshua did indeed come into our midst, but through a man.
Then in Passover, 2003, we gathered together to hold all things in common, once again awaiting the outpouring of His Spirit. We did so from before Passover, until after Pentecost. This event is what cost me my family in its fullest sense. My wife and two remaining girls left, and have never returned. It was spoken beforehand by a lady that this was going to be the death of the Remnant Bride, but it would resurrect in 2004. So it was true!
Let us examine once again this strong messenger in Revelation 10. We have already noted that he is an intercessor with one foot on the sea of death and one on the land. We know that he is a part of reversing the curse, evidenced by the rainbow on his head and the seven peals of thunder being sealed. And we know that the open book he holds that is sweet as honey to the mouth and bitter to the stomach has been the experience of the Bride. And as we have noted, this messenger is the Bride work. Now let us see the most important truth yet regarding the fulfillment of this messenger.
At Passover, 2004, we entered into the Millennial reign. The evidence of this is reported in the writing, Shelah and Clay of Spittle. So what then were the years prior to this change, and what were the years following? Legally, the age of Christianity came to a close per its final opportunity to ascend alive at Tabernacles, 2003, and they failed. This meant that Passover, 2004, marked a new age, a new period of time. Prior to that Passover was the 2,000 swine sea of death, even forty Jubilee wilderness of death, age of Christianity. But that Passover marked a new beginning – the age of the Millennial reign land of promise.
If a being was not limited by the fourth dimension of time, if he could place one foot in the period prior to Passover, 2004, he would have one foot on the sea, the wilderness sea of death. And if he could likewise have one foot on this side of Passover, 2004 (Passover included), he would have one foot on land, the promised land. This is precisely what Yahweh has effected for the Remnant Bride. Because of the works the Bride effected in 2001-2003 (and even before), we have one foot on the sea of death. But likewise, because we have not ceased in our labors and in our perseverance, we have placed one foot on the promised land of the Millennial reign. Thus the Remnant Bride is in fact that strong messenger, the Malachi, “My messenger,” the Elijah, the intercessor. Let us now see this more clearly. As has been said, this is most incredible and very encouraging.
On December 24, the day before the Tabernacles Pentecost, we began to see that what Yahweh did in the Bride in 2001, 2002, and 2003, foreshadowed what He would fulfill in 2004, 2005, and undoubtedly in 2006 as well. So very much could be said here about this principle that is in action here. When Yahweh was teaching me His ways in 1981, I saw this then as the principle that you reap what you sow. That which we sowed in those years from 2001 through 2003, we have thus far reaped in 2004 and 2005, and have hope for the same in 2006. As an intercessor, one could also call this identification. By walking through those times before the Millennial reign, even being willing to look like a failure, yet always having hope that Yahweh would provide and give the perseverance to keep going, we gained the right for their fulfillment in the Millennial reign.
One can therefore say that without those seeds, without those intercessions, the fulfillments today would not have been possible. When one willingly goes through an intercession, two primary things are gained: (1) vital understanding that equips one for when the fulfillment is to come, and (2) the authority to receive the fulfillment. Let us now see how Yahweh fulfilled in 2004 and 2005 that which He led us to walk out in 2001 and 2002. And you will notice here that He effected a three-year delay. That which we walked out in 2001, was fulfilled three years later in 2004. And that which we walked out in 2002, was fulfilled three years later in 2005. And of course the hope we have now is that that which we walked out in 2003, will be fulfilled in 2006. Thus this strong messenger intercession has one year remaining in order to be complete.
In 2001, there were the following major developments:
With our right foot on the sea of death in 2001, what then was Yahweh’s fulfillment of these intercessions on the land in 2004? You will be amazed at the striking similarity.
In 2001, there were four men who gathered for Passover. It is quite interesting that there were supposed to have been five men, but only two hours before the fifth was to get on the plane, he backed out. Three years later, after Christianity failed to ascend alive in Tabernacles, 2003; in 2004 once again four men gathered for a Remnant Bride Passover. What were we? Without making claim to such, we were the fulfillment of the four lepers three years prior. Even as Yahweh began the right foot work with four men at Passover, 2001, so He began the left foot work equally with four men at Passover, 2004.
What was it that the four lepers in 2 Kings 7 received for their trust in Yahweh and their actions wherein they stepped out when others would not, leaving behind the city held in bondage (Christianity)? They received all the spoils of the enemy! Likewise, beginning at that Passover, 2004, and in the days and weeks and months that followed, Yahweh gave us tremendous spoils that once belonged to the enemy. The amount of revelation truth that came forth was incredible! Look at what was published beginning with The Rod and A Lesson From Intercession, and it is amazing what Yahweh opened our eyes to see. In fact, it was even noted that He was preparing a table before us in the presence of our enemy, Satan. And if this was not already enough, Yahweh led us to set forth the contract, “The Legal Transfer of the Office of the Twelfth Apostle,” on Atonement of that same year when the same four men came together once again.
By this contract, the office of the twelfth apostle was transferred from Satan to this man. Thus, even as Kyle was given a stigmata in his side in 2001, so by the contract he signed in 2004, Yahweh took a rib, an apostle from the past (via the office), and gave him authority that had belonged to Satan and Christianity (2 Samuel 21:11-14, “Zela” meaning “rib”). Thus, that which took place at Passover and Atonement per these fulfilling “four lepers” in 2004, ended the intensely difficult years for this man that had preceded, brought the beginning of the Millennial age, and began a work that would lead a Remnant into this Shelah Millennial reign and prepare the way for Yahshua’s return. In testimony, second-Remnant-representing Bush then rewon the Presidency, and the Red Sox won the World Series and reversed their curse of 1920.
And most importantly, even as an angel was testified in the first ever gathering of the Bride at Grace’s music concert, so the work of the strong messenger began in 2001, placing his right foot on the sea of death, and making possible the left foot on the promised land in 2004.
Now that we see a clear correlation between 2001 and 2004, what then took place in the right foot in 2002?
Here again, with our right foot on the sea of death in 2002, what then was Yahweh’s fulfillment of these intercessions in 2005? You will again be amazed at the striking similarities.
It is incredible that in 2002 we were anticipating that the latter rain twelve apostles might be established, when this was in fact exactly what He did three years later at Trumpets, 2005, the left foot on land! In 2002 He revealed to us the understanding regarding the eight-and-one pattern, and in 2005 He took that same truth we had learned three years earlier in the right foot, and revealed to us in the left foot the critical necessity of holding a Tabernacles Pentecost. It was quite remarkable that though we went through that pattern in ‘02 at Passover, in truth what we experienced was the seven-and-one pattern that is characteristic of Tabernacles. In other words, in ’02 we actually walked out a Tabernacles pattern, which we then walked out in the days leading up to and during the Tabernacles Pentecost. More on this in page 4, along with the 450.
And once again we saw testified in 2002 that which was truly taking place – the strong messenger intercession. On the eighth day of intercession in ’02 we entered into two rainbows, the very thing that was on the head of the strong angel. The tops of these two rainbows had literally come down to earth in order for us to experience them, thus testifying that the messenger’s head (truth) was coming to earth with the promise of His grace and mercy. In 2005 we were receiving the “head,” heavenly truth, that no man has ever received. In truth we were ascending and descending, receiving truth that is from above and presenting it to man on this earth, and we did so by ongoing intercession and obedience. And most remarkably, in both of these angel testimonies/experiences, we had gone to hear Grace play her music. Obviously, Yahweh is testifying to His grace that He is extending in these matters.
Additionally, in 2002 we experienced the testimony of the rainbow of the strong messenger, and in 2005 we saw the truth of this strong messenger, this six-year intercession of the Bride bridging between the sea of death and the promised land of the Millennial reign.
But what is even more incredible about these two comparative years, is that in 2002 Yahweh began showing us about the test of Carmel, and three years later in 2005 He brought all three participants of that test together on one day – December 25! What was the chance that all three of these participants would converge as they did, not only on this specific date, but even three years after it was revealed in the right foot? The chances are infinitesimally high! These are two incredible testimonies – the evidence of the right foot and left foot per Carmel, and the convergence of all three of these feasts/holidays on the same day. Clearly, Yahweh has designed all of this. And none of this we saw in advance, but had to walk every bit of it out in faith, fully trusting in Him alone and not in ourselves, and being willing to look like failures, even to this day! Once again, Yahweh has given us the privilege of seeing His back, that which He has done!
Thus we have seen an unmistakable correlation between 2001 and 2004, as well as 2002 and 2005. So what then took place in 2003, and what can we thus hope for in 2006?
As previously stated, it was spoken beforehand by a lady that 2003 was going to be the death of the Remnant Bride, but it would resurrect in 2004. As we see, this did indeed take place; and its resurrection was in the Millennial reign. And based on the consistently fulfilled pattern thus far, as unlikely as it may seem at the beginning of this year, the right foot of 2003 points to the fact that in 2006 we should be holding all things in common to some extent. While this man has no plans at this time for such, as one can tell from what has unfolded up to now, it really does not matter what this man plans. All that matters is that Yahweh performs His work according to His will and His ways, and this we are seeing.
Finally, even as Tabernacles, 2003, marked the end of the age of Christianity, so Tabernacles, 2006, will mark an end of this right foot/left foot strong messenger intercession. It will be most interesting to see what takes place this year and thereafter. The fourth dimension of time will reveal this, and we wait with wonder and hope.
In summary, we see then the clear testimony of the strong messenger, the Remnant Bride intercessor:
On the sea of death,
in the 2,000 year period of the body
Four lepers at Passover
angel attended, beginning the right
Kyle given the stigmata of a bruised side
The test of Carmel was revealed
appeared that twelve apostles would
walked out a highly revealing nine
eighth day we drove through the two
We held all
things in common before
Tabernacles marked the
end of the age of
On the land,
in the Millennial reign
Four men at Passover who received
the riches of the enemy
left foot fulfillment of the strong
man was given the legal right as
test of Carmel was appointed on
twelve apostles were sovereignly
were shown the truth of the nine
revealed the truth of the strong
To be seen
A new beginning awaits us!
It is incredible that Yahweh has done all of this; but none of it would have happened if this man and others had not been willing to eat the little open book of Remnant Bride truth that has been sweet as honey to our mouths, but very bitter to our stomachs. All of this happened by the sovereign will of Yahweh and because there were some who were willing to pay the price, to eat the little open book and to suffer for doing so and still persevere. Yet even so, concerning these things we are unworthy servants, having done only that which we ought to have done (Luke 17:5-10). Blessed be the name of Yahweh for His works.
So were we wrong to take the position as the four lepers in 2001? And were we wrong to believe Yahweh in 2002 that He would establish the twelve apostles and effect the test of Carmel, and to believe Him that He had indeed led us in an intercession so as to give us understanding and authority regarding the nine-part pattern? And were we wrong to anticipate that Yahshua would come into our midst? And were we wrong to believe the Red Sox would win the World Series in 2003? And were we wrong when in 2003 we came together and held all things in common, once again looking to Yahweh to send us His latter rain? Is it not written – “Ask rain from Yahweh at the time of the spring (latter) rain” (Zechariah 10:1). So were we wrong to put feet to our prayers and ask? Did Yahweh not hear us? No, He heard us; in fact He led us to do all these things. It is the natural man who cannot hear and cannot see the ways of Yahweh, who cannot see what is to come and must take place, who falsely criticizes because his faith is weak and his eyes are blind. It is the doubting and unbelieving mind that dismisses these things. But Yahweh sees and He answers from on high, even as 2004 and 2005 so very clearly evidenced.
In October, 1981, Yahweh called this man to be an intercessor, and the Bride wherein He is using this man to form has no less the same purpose. This man has been interceding even before 1994 when the Spirit came upon me, and the Bride has been actively interceding since 2000 when it first began to take form. John, the Elijah, “leapt in the womb” that year. That leap at that leap year marked the sixth year of the Bride work. For three more years the Bride labored in the womb – 2001, 2002, and 2003. It was not until 2004 that the Bride could come forth into its own; and so it did, right on Yahweh’s time! Could these present fulfillments have come sooner? Obviously not! Would these fulfillments have come if we had not interceded in 2001, 2002, and 2003? Obviously not, or Yahweh would not have led us through these things. Intercession is critical! By intercession one receives authority and understanding, and the Bride received both following 2003.
While the Remnant Bride has been Yahweh’s strong messenger who cries out with a great voice, all that Christianity was able to do towards fulfilling this critical intercession was to bring forth their ridiculous lion roars in the Toronto Blessing movement, along with all of its other antics. As we read in Revelation 10:3, the strong messenger “cried out with a great voice, as when a lion roars.” Neither the Toronto Blessing nor any of Christianity did or even could perform the critical intercession of the strong messenger. This work belonged to the Bride, the “obedient people” who eat the truth of the little open book and have been willing to suffer the bitterness to the stomach.
The Spirit came upon this man in 1994 and began revealing the Remnant Bride truth, the same year the Toronto Blessing began. Both began in 1994, and both had the responsibility to bring forth the “great voice.” But all they could do was to practice their fleshly antics (that are from Satan, who is like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour – 1 Peter 5:8), while the Bride ate the open book and laid down three years of intercessions per the right foot, and has experienced Yahweh’s fulfillments in the two years of the left foot. Thus we have one year remaining in this strong messenger intercession. As we realized at the revealing Tabernacles Pentecost gathering, Yahweh’s fulfillment of many Scriptures are never understood until they are either being fulfilled or are already fulfilled. We see His back. Such has been the case with the strong messenger. We walk by faith, and secure the promise.
In actuality, it is this strong messenger work of the Remnant Bride that brought the Millennial reign – the right foot three years immediately preceded it, and the left foot fulfillments initiated it. It is this legal intercessoral work that brings about the promised covenant of peace and seals the seven peals of thunder, the voices of wrath. Thus the Bride is the bridge of faith and belief and actions that links the 2,000 years of the sea of death (even as they all died in the wilderness), to the promised land when men will cease going to the sea. The works that were and are being accomplished in these six critical years, are the intercession between these two ages, the legal transition that makes this vital change possible. And the open book that made this possible is the opened word of Yahweh, the Remnant Bride truth that has come because He has given a man the authority to loose the seals of the book.
What specifically does the right foot speak of? It speaks of priesthood (Exodus 29:20, Leviticus 8:23) and cleansing from leprosy (Leviticus 14:14, 17, 25, 28), and most importantly, the water of the latter rain that begins as a trickle “from the right side” of the eastern gate (Ezekiel 47:2). The intercessions we performed in faith in 2001-2003 secured that right foot work, and we find them fulfilled in the left foot work, with one year remaining, and the hope and promise that that water will ever increase until it is deep enough in which to swim!
We will watch and see what Yahweh has for us; but meanwhile, this intercession affords great hope, encouragement, confidence, and a satisfaction that Yahshua takes pleasure in it and is strengthened through it, not only in Himself, but per the body of Christ. Let us see.
You are undoubtedly very familiar with the passage in Ecclesiastes 1:9:
That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
That which is has been already, and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.
We know that the forty years in the wilderness are a type of the forty Jubilees in the wilderness, or as Stephen called it – “the church in the wilderness” (Acts 7:38), Christianity.
In like testimony, we also know that Yahshua’s own intercessoral forty days and forty nights in the wilderness represented the same period – the wilderness period of Christianity. With all of this being true, and with the age of Christianity complete, what then will be the fulfillment, that which God seeks, when we read in Matthew 4:11 concerning the end of this age?
Then the devil left Him; and behold, messengers came and began to minister to Him.
We know that per the “Legal Transfer of the Office of the Twelfth Apostle,” the devil indeed lost his place as Yahshua’s apostle; he “left Him.” So how can messengers minister to Him as well?
These six years of intercession that have taken place per the strong messenger, evidence to be the six years at the end of wilderness Christianity wherein we, His messengers, minister to Him by our faith and obedience and works. That which the Bride has done for the last five years, and that which we will perform this year, ministers to Yahshua after the long wilderness of Christianity!
That which has been is that which we are now seeing, and even fulfilling. Oh the hope and the joy! May Yahweh be glorified in our lives!
