Waves Breaking over Barriers South of San Francisco

Charismatic Witchcraft & Witchcraft Prayers

Breaking Over the Barriers

It was because you, the Levites, did not bring it up the first time that the Lord our God broke out in anger against us. We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way.” (1 Chronicles 15:13 AMPC)

Israel’s desire was to have the Ark of the Covenant in Jerusalem. However, when they went to retrieve it, they placed it on a cart instead of having the Levites carry it on poles. They didn’t worship Him in the way He had shown them and because of that, one man died as the Lord “broke out” against them.

The Lord told me two things:

  1. “You need to turn your back on churches under the influence of Jezebel”
  2. “The waves south of San Francisco will break over the barriers.”
When the waves break over those barriers, it is a confirming sign. I sought Him and asked why San Francisco?

Feasts of Israel: Trumpets and Awe


Trumpets and the Days of Awe

God’s people are told to hold several “feasts” or “festivals” for all times. The Hebrew word moadim for “feasts” literally means "appointed times." These are gatherings of God’s people to remember what He has done in the past. The feasts occurring in the spring were fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus:

     Passover (Pesach) – Leviticus 23:5 – Jesus is our Passover lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7) whose blood would be shed for our sins. Jesus was crucified during the time that the Passover was observed (Mark 14:12). Christ is a “lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:19) because His life was completely free from sin (Hebrews 4:15). As the first Passover marked the Hebrews’ release from Egyptian slavery, so the death of Christ marks our release from the slavery to sin (Romans 8:2).

     Unleavened Bread (Ḥag haMatzot) – Leviticus 23:6 – Pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible), making Him the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

     First Fruits (Bikkurim) – Leviticus 23:10 – Pointed to the Messiah’s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. Jesus was resurrected on this very day, which is one of the reasons that Paul refers to him in 1 Corinthians 15:20 as the “first fruits from the dead.”

     Weeks or Pentecost (Shavuot)  – Leviticus 23:16 – Occurred fifty (pente) days after the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Shavuot also means “oaths,” for on this day G‑d swore eternal devotion to us, and we in turn pledged everlasting loyalty to Him. Jesus fulfilled the Law so that the Holy Spirit could come and dwell in man instead of upon a few individuals. When the disciples were gathered in an upper room, the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit occurred on this feast day.

Are the Two Witnesses the Gentile and Jewish Christians

Where is Our Focus


“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.” (Malachi 4:5 AKJV)

All of Israel was looking for Elijah before the coming of Jesus. The religious leaders of the day, the Sadducees and Pharisees, were so set on seeing Elijah of old appearing suddenly before them that they missed the fact that John the Baptist operated in the mantle of Elijah. Zacharia, John’s father, received a word from an angel stating who his son would be before the child was born:

“And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous--to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” (Luke 1:16-17 AKJV)

The spirit and power is what we refer to as a “mantle.” The description of what John would do lines up with the rest of what was prophesied about Elijah coming before the Lord:

“And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers.” (Malachi 4:6 AKJV)

Who are the Two Witnesses?

Who are the Two Witnesses

The Witness of Jesus

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. (Malachi 4:5)

Before Jesus made His official debut, God sent a “witness” to prepare the world. The Israelites were expecting Elijah to come from Heaven and prepare the way. The Encyclopedia Britannica speaks about how Israel looks at this event:

The fifth ceremonial cup of wine poured during the family Seder dinner on Passover (Pesaḥ). It is left untouched in honor of Elijah, who, according to tradition, will arrive one day as an unknown guest to herald the advent of the Messiah. During the Seder dinner, biblical verses are read while the door is briefly opened to welcome Elijah, who, it is further said, will resolve all controversial questions connected with the Law. 

God’s people were so focused on the fact that “Elijah” would be preparing the way for the Messiah’s reign that they forgot one simple, undeniable fact: God is always the same. He never changes.

Babylon, the 1000 Year Reign and New Jerusalem

Babylon, the 1000 Year Reign and New Jerusalem Meeting

So far we have placed the following events in this order according to what the Bible says:

     Breaking of the Seals: Appearing of the Antichrist may happen before the Tribulation
     Signing of a Seven Year Agreement - The predicted Tribulation, also known as Daniel’s Week
     Broken into two parts consisting of 3.5 years

First Half of the Tribulation - 3.5 years

     Six Seals are broken
     Two Witnesses prophecy and declare plagues
     Two Witnesses are killed after 3.5 years in Jerusalem

Second Half of the Daniel’s Week: Great Tribulation

     Antichrist stops sacrifices in the Temple of God and declares himself to be God
     Seventh Seal Broken
     144,000 are sealed for God
     Some are killed for not worshiping the Beast
     Trumpets begin
     Two Witnesses rise at the sixth Trumpet

After the Tribulation

     Rapture: check churches to see if you will be one of them
     (Could happen as the Two Witnesses rise)
     All are killed if they do not accept the mark of the Beast and worship the Beast to buy or sell
     Blessed are those who are beheaded for staying true to Jesus
     Wrath of God is poured out

These are the events we can place around the Tribulation Week. There is a “fall of Babylon” that is spoken of, but it is hard to say when exactly that will take place.

The 144,000 - All Men?

144,000 Live video

Children of Israel


There are three different people groups spoken of in the Book of Revelation:
  • The World - Non-Christians
  • The Church - All Christians also referred to as “Jews”
  • Israel - Children of Israel (Jacob)

Israel does not necessarily mean the same as “Jews.” Children of Abraham, included those adopted in are “Jews.” Jacob was referred to as “Israel” so Children of Israel are those who are biologically related to Jacob and settled the land called Israel.

After the sixth seal, before the trumpets are released, God addresses the “Children of Israel” in Chapter 7 of Revelation.

After this I saw four angels stationed at the four corners of the earth, firmly holding back the four winds of the earth so that no wind should blow on the earth or sea or upon any tree. (Revelation 7:1 AMPC)

Is a Rapture (Catching Away) in the Bible?

Is the Rapture in the Bible Meeting

Whether you have heard it referred to it as the “Rapture” or the “Catching away of the Saints,” there is a belief among many Christians that some or all of the children of God will escape the terrible calamities prophesied in the Book of Revelation. We must look to the scriptures to see the truth of this matter.

It is important to remember that we do not have to agree about this topic. We are saved by our relationship with Jesus as Lord, not by what we believe concerning an impending rapture. Consider this food for thought: May the Holy Spirit bring you wisdom about this topic.

As I meditated and sought the Lord before giving this message, this is what happened in the Secret Place:

What is the Fate of Your Church?


Live Meeting "What is the Fate of Your Church"

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. (Psalms 27:5 AMPC)

In this Psalm David refers to the Secret Place as the “tent” of the Lord. Jesus will visit with us there, not as the Lord who reigns over Heaven and Earth, but as our beloved and our brother.

When I saw Him there last, He asked me to tell you about this realm, a place that our Heavenly Father set apart, where we can see not only Jesus, but Abba (Papa, Daddy) instead of Almighty God and the Holy Spirit, our dear Friend. In order to visit with Him in the Secret Place on a regular basis, we must “overcome” the enemy as described in Revelation. If we will:

The Future of God's Church - Part 1 (Churches 1-3 of Revelation)



The Future of the Church

Before I began studying the churches in the Book of Revelation, the Lord revealed something to me in the Secret Place. The visit with Him began like many others, with us dancing in the gazebo of the Secret Place. With great excitement, He took me by the hand and said, “I have something I want to show you!”

We ran into the forest surrounding the meadow where the tiny table for tea sits. Deep into the forest the Lord led me into a cave. It took seconds for my eyes to adjust to the glowing light on the cave walls. Jesus led me deeper and deeper into smaller and smaller jagged-walled caverns until we were stooping over, traveling single-file through a narrow passageway. Despite the soft ambient light, the closing in of the walls had me feeling slightly worried as I thought, “What could possibly be exciting in this place?”

About that time, we emerged into an enormous cavern. Crystals on the ceiling and walls glowed with a brighter light so the entire area was revealed. A waterfall at one end created a small lake in the middle of the room. The water was luminescent; glowing with diffused light from the walls. Without hesitation, the Lord dove into the water and I followed.

The liquid seemed different than the water at the river in the Secret Place: it was colder and seemed lighter, or perhaps we were more buoyant here. I followed Jesus deep into the water, remembering that I could breathe in the water of Heaven.

Deep below the surface at the bottom, in a far corner, the Lord turned and handed me a green gem which resembled an emerald. It was the size of my fist. (Green is healing and provision). I gladly accepted this great treasure. Next He began pointing out other treasures in this corner of the pool: coins (financial provision), rubies (wisdom), sapphires, (communion and revelation from God).

“What is all this?” I thought to Him.

The Lord’s words came clearly through to my mind, “This is the blessing from studying Revelation. At first, it seemed dark when you entered the cave, then there was just enough light to make your way forward. Now you are coming to the place where you must squeeze through, the narrow place before this cavern. Those who choose to look closely at their lives with the information (light) provided, will find their way through where these blessings await.”

It is time to go through the narrow way and see what God is saying about His church. The last scripture given before the churches are addressed reveal what will be spoken about:

The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which you saw are the seven churches. (Revelation 1:20 AMPC)

The Fate of the Word - Vials of Wrath in Revelation

Vials of Wrath Meeting

Many people don’t want to talk about the Book of Revelation. They ask, “How could a loving God pour out wrath upon people?” If you read the Old Testament, you will find out why.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness… (2 Timothy 3:16 AKJV)

Paul is instructing his new young leader about scripture found in the Old Testament. When we follow Paul’s advice, it is easy to see a decided trend in the stories of God’s people. Our Father would let them continue in sin for a certain period of time. Then, consequences would come - sometimes hundreds of years later. Several verses in the New Testament seem to contradict this aspect of God. Let’s look at one of those very closely:

3 Woes of Revelation


Keep reminding God's people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. (2 Timothy 2:14 NIV)

In this scripture Paul is instructing a young leader, Timothy. The items in Revelation that we have no absolute interpretation of should not cause petty disagreements. We should be able to look at the items we can definitely identify and agree to disagree about the rest. The last three trumpets are events we must be willing to disagree about for they most definitely could be metaphorical.

Three Woes


And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the middle of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound! (Revelation 8:13)

The next three trumpets are known as the “three woes” because of the severity of what happens when they are sounded. It is hard to believe that something could be worse than an earthquake that darkens the skies and meteorites hitting the earth, but the final trumpets will be more fierce than what has come before.

Wormwood and Revelation Trumpets 1-4

Wormwood and the Revelation Trumpets 1-4


Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3 AKJV)

The Apostle John was confined to an island by the leaders of his time. He wrote the Book of Revelation during his confinement. It begins with a blessing for those who hear and “keep” the things written within this book. The Greek word tereo  translated “keep” means to “attend to carefully.” That is what we are doing here today.

But that when the days come when the trumpet call of the seventh angel is about to be sounded, then God’s mystery (His secret design, His hidden purpose), as He had announced the glad tidings to His servants the prophets, should be fulfilled (accomplished, completed). (Revelation 10:7 AMPC)

The Greek word for mystery is mysterion and it means “a hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding.” Only in His time, by His spirit can we understand them.  It isn’t necessary or even possible to understand all of what is written in Revelation, until God reveals it or possibly while it is happening.

Revelation: Seals


Revelation Seals Live meeting

When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:15)

We were told by our Lord that we should look for and recognize this event as being close to persecution and His return to rule and reign. Discussing the events surrounding the return of our Lord should invigorate the body of Christ. After all, we are all expectantly waiting for this time. Unfortunately, instead of uniting us as a body working for the Kingdom of Heaven, it often creates division and strife.

As we continue looking into the Book of Revelation, please remember that what we choose to believe concerning the return of the Lord doesn’t affect our salvation. We are all brothers and sisters, adopted into the family of God. If what you believe doesn’t line up with what I believe, that is okay. We can agree to disagree and celebrate the fact that one day, we will all know the truth!

Microsoft Patent, 666, and the Tribulation Timeline

Agape Live Meeting

Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred three score (60) and six. (Revelation 13:18)
Because God created man on the sixth day, metaphorically speaking, the number six represents man. A score is 20 years. We are told to watch for the number 666 which is a sign of the beast which is described in the rest of the chapter.

Microsoft has received a patent number: WO2020060606. Let’s break down that number:

WO-2020-060606

  • WO - refers to the fact that the patent is  worldwide 
  • 2020 - the year the patent was established
  • 060606 - zero means, literally, nothing. 06 is actually the number six. three of them make the  number 666 which is the number of the beast - the Antichrist according to Revelation 13

Passover, Jesus and God's Timeline

It is well known that the Jewish feast of Passover is a foreshadow of Jesus and the sacrifice of the cross. It is a feast they were told to celebrate for all time. Here is a quick review of how Passover represents what Jesus would do.
