The Climax of Operation Jericho
Sep 18, 2011
Operation Jericho finished with a long, loud shout yesterday at the steps of the Capitol building in St. Paul, MN.
The only surprise was that this shout overthrew the spirit of Jezebel controlling the political process in St. Paul. Jezebel was cast down, and so it will be of interest to me to watch Minnesota politics change in the coming years.
Operation Jericho was designed to cast down the denominational walls of the Church. Jericho means "moon." Even as it reflects the glory of the sun, so also is the Church supposed to reflect the glory of God. This reflection is about to become much brighter, as read in Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun..."
The fact that this event coincides with the expulsion of three mainline church denominations from Canadian Indian land appears to reflect the fact that those churches have fallen with Jezebel. Perhaps Jezebel was so entrenched in them that they fell out the window with her.
I was able to explain to some of the people about the 7 Old Testament churches which run parallel to the 7 New Testament churches in Revelation 2 and 3. The churches of the Old Testament first manifested the various problems of their day, and their NT counterparts were designed to make the necessary corrections. Hence, each had its own warning, and each had the promise of overcomers to do the job, empowered by each of the 7 Spirits of God.
The "Moses Church" refused to hear the Word of the Lord directly (Ex. 20:18-21). The "Ephesus" Church [33-64 A.D.] lost its first love--the ability to hear God apart from its hierarchy.
The "Korah Church" rebelled against the authority of Moses (Num. 16:10), where people desired to be priests though they were not truly called. The "Smyrna" church [64-313 A.D.] failed to deal with "those who say they are Jews and are not" (Rev. 2:10).
The "Balaam Church" joined itself to paganism through the Moabites, because of the advice of Balaam (Num. 31:16). The "Pergamos" church [313-529 A.D.] did not deal with those who "hold the doctrine of Balaam" (Rev. 2:14). Pergamos means "married to power."
The "Jezebel Church" persecuted the prophets and the remnant of grace (1 Kings 18:13). The "Thyatira Church" [529-1517] did the same (Rev. 2:20). Following the example of King Ahab, this church was married to Jezebel, the real power behind the throne.
The "Remnant of Grace Church" was the group of 7,000 that did not bow the knee to Baal in the days of Ahab, Jezebel, and Elijah (1 Kings 19:14-18). The "Sardis Church" [1517-1776] was the Remnant of Grace that was persecuted by the Jezebel Church. Sardis or Sardius is a precious stone. Paul speaks of this "remnant" in terms of the elect, or the overcomers (Rom. 11:4, 5).
The "Hezekiah Church" had a little strength, because his name means "strength of Yahweh." He was thus able to forestall the coming captivity long enough to bring forth his son, Manasseh. Manasseh was of Judah but named for the son of Joseph. Thus, he represented the repair of the breach between Judah and Israel that would prepare the way for Christ's appearance as Joseph with his robe dipped in blood. The "Philadelphia Church" [1776-1914] was the missionary church, seeing the rise of men and women called to bring the gospel to the ends of the earth. The key of David was given to them, along with an open door (Rev. 3:7). This is a direct reference to Isaiah 22:22, which took place in the days of Hezekiah himself. The key of David is Love, and the open door is a door of ministry to the world.
The "Captivity Church" was when Israel and Judah were taken captive in judgment for their sin. Though Judah prospered in Babylon, thinking themselves rich, they were poor as God measures prosperity. The "Laodicean Church" [1914-1993] also was put into captivity by Mystery Babylon, beginning with the Federal Reserve Act. This Church has also prospered in Babylon, and it even has a "Prosperity Doctrine" of its own, not realizing just how blind and poor it really is in the midst of monetary wealth.
Each of these 7 Churches has been given overcomers in the midst of the general failure of the Church to fulfill its calling. These overcome by the 7 Spirits of God (Isaiah 11:2):
Ephesis -- The Spirit of the Lord
Smyrna -- Understanding
Pergamos -- Counsel
Thyatira -- Knowledge
Sardis -- Wisdom
Philadelphia -- Strength (Might)
Laodicea -- Fear of the Lord
On the capitol steps in St. Paul yesterday, a man was assigned to read Revelation 2 and 3, the message to the Seven Churches. After each Church passage was read, a shofar was blown, followed by a prophetic utterance relating to each specific Church. There were 7 shofar blowers and 7 prophecies.
My assignment was to prophesy in regard to the Church of Thyatira. I volunteered for that assignment because I could identify with the opening statement in Rev. 2:18,
"These things saith the Son of God, who hath His eyes like unto a flame of fire, and His feet are like the fine brass."
Back in 2001 it was revealed that the "the power of the flame" in Isaiah 47:14 was the name of an angel assigned to me (and others, no doubt). Likewise, there is an angel known as "the eyes of God" (Zech. 3:9; 4:10). They are said to be seven in number, which go to and fro throughout the earth, discerning all things. This is the angel of "seers" and "watchers."
Both of the above are directly associated with the face of God, Peniel, which technically means "My face is God." It is God's face shining in our face (as with Moses in Ex. 34:29).
Hence, these three angels can be seen in the face of the Son of God as the Word goes to the Church of Thyatira.
I did not speak from notes when my turn arrived, but here is the gist of what I said, as I remember:
Thus saith the Lord: [pointing to the capitol building] Honor your Congressmen; honor your Senators; honor your Judges; [pointing to the people] but to YOU I give the throne. To YOU I give the scepter. As you overcome, My face will be seen in you, with eyes as a flame of fire going to and fro throughout the earth.
When the 7 shofars had sounded and the 7 prophecies had been spoken, then Joshua 6 was read, regarding the battle of Jericho. Then the people began to shout at 3:14, ending at 3:18 p.m.
It began with the pi factor (3.14), because it was about encircling Jericho. It ended at 318, because that is the "remnant" number, as I explained in my blog dated 9/16 in my "biblical math lesson." I also estimate that there were about 300+ people who shouted there. 318, perhaps? There was no way to tell for sure.
During the shout, I saw Jezebel fall from the Capitol.
I was also glad that the chaplain of the Capitol Prayer Network (Cathy Jo Severson) prayed specifically that the dividing wall would be cast down to create the New Creation Man (Eph. 2:14-15). I doubt that even she understood the full implications of this, but it was something that I had already discussed with friends. I was aware that this wall, which was so entrenched in the first century, had been erected in the 20th century once again. It needed to come down--and it did. The best part is that it was prophesied by the Chaplain, not by me.
Her prayer will be answered in an unexpected way. When it does, the light of the moon will become like the light of the sun, as we will be better able to reflect the glory of God in our faces.
