The Procession leading to the Coronation of the Remnant
Nov 15, 2011
Recently I wrote about the 10-year repeating patterns from 2001-2011. This 10-year pattern is known as the Hezekiah Factor, and it is something that had enormous significance in 1996. That was when God turned the clock back 10 "degrees" (years) to 1986 so that we could declare the Jubilee on time, though it was actually ten years late.
But the Hezekiah Factor has another side to it. Not only does it turn the clock BACK ten years, but it also gives Hezekiah a 15-year extension of life. In other words, when King Hezekiah was supposed to die, he asked for an extension of life, and therefore received 15 more years before he actually did die.
So when we declared the Jubilee on Sept. 23, 1996 (the day of atonement that year), not only did God turn the clock back 10 years to the Day of Atonement of 1986, but He also established a 15-year extension to the year 2011. Hence, we saw the "death" of Hezekiah on the Day of Atonement of 2011, which happened to occur while we were in St. Louis for our Conference on Oct. 8, 2011.
Prophetically speaking, that marked the time that Manasseh would come to the throne. Manasseh was a type of the Remnant. So says the prophet Isaiah in 2 Kings 19:29-31. We took note, then, that the Remnant had come to the throne, empowered by Aaron's Rod of authority.
Keep in mind also that the biblical number for the Remnant is 318, seen specifically in Gen. 14:14 as the spiritual warriors of Abraham's household of faith. Their "mission from God" is to set the captive church free from the kings of Babylon (Shinar).
Anyway, in this sequence of prophetic events, there is an interesting connection between October 8 and November 14. October 8 was the beginning of the reign of the Manasseh Remnant. November 14 is the 318th day of the year. Ten years ago on the same date (2001) we received revelation that this date was the coronation of the overcomers.
At the time, of course, there was no way to know how this would develop ten years later. Divine coincidences indicate a hidden plan in the purposes of God. November 14, 2001 was the end of the 2-week prayer campaign called Entering the Millennium of Rest. The coronation of Manasseh occurred on October 8, 2011, while we were at the Millennium Hotel in St. Louis.
So what does this mean? What does it indicate?
Well, the first thing is to realize that we are seeing results now from the prayer campaign that was fought ten years ago. One side of this was to watch the 13 Mayan priests carrying the 13 crystal skulls across America in order to create a spiritual "portal" in Los Angeles on November 11. I know that they failed, though I have not heard any news from their lips yet. They failed first because we already won this battle ten years ago; and secondly, because overcomers in the past few weeks took action a second time to confirm the victory from 2001.
But there was also another theme in the prayer campaign ten years ago, which has come to the surface. It is how the spiritual warfare from 10 years ago applies to the church. After all, if Abraham's spiritual warriors are called to set Lot free from the kings of Babylon, then this speaks of the church. Like Lot, the church as a whole chose Sodom as the place to try to maintain a righteous life style--something that is quite a challenge, to say the least. See the story in Gen. 13:7-13.
It is the job description of the Remnant (or Overcomers) to assist the church (Lot) by engaging in spiritual warfare to set them free from their Babylonian captivity. We have been doing this for a long time, of course, but it appears that we have entered into a new era in the history of the Kingdom of God. As of yesterday, November 14.
Even so, this is just the start of a 2-week transfer of authority that should end November 29/30. How so? Because the 15-year Hezekiah extension means that events in 1996 are now resurfacing in 2011. What happened Nov. 14-30, 1996? It was when the Coronation Stone was returned to Scotland after being in London for 700 years. It left London on Nov. 14, 1996 and arrived at its destination in Edinborough, Scotland on November 30, 1996.
This is the pattern we are seeing today, 15 years later. It was prophesied by their actions in 1996, but there was also a delay, due to the extension of Hezekiah's life.
A Little Background
The Coronation Stone was Jacob's "pillar" that he anointed after having his dream at Bethel (Gen. 28:18). This Coronation Stone became a type of Christ, because Christ means "anointed." From then on, the Messiah is called a "Rock." Deut. 32:15 says of Israel, "Then he forsook God who made him, and scorned the Rock of his salvation (Yeshua)."
This stone was brought by Jacob into Egypt, and when he died, he entrusted it to the care of the Birthright son, Joseph, saying in Gen. 49:24, "from there is the shepherd, the Stone of Israel." This was also the rock that "followed them" out of Egypt (1 Cor. 10:4). Paul tells us that this same rock was the one that Moses struck to give the people water. It was a type of Christ, who would be "struck" or "smitten" in order to bring the water of life to the world.
This rock was also used as a coronation stone when crowning the kings of Judah (2 Kings 11:14; 23:3). It was customary to stand upon the rock as a symbol of ruling in the place of Christ.
This stone was then brought to Ireland along with David's harp and one of the daughters of Zedekiah, the last king of Judah. Jeremiah was their guardian (Jer. 41:10; 43:6), and when Judah was taken captive to Babylon, Jeremiah took a ship with Baruch, his scribe, and journeyed to Spain and then to Ireland. One of the king's daughters was married to the prince in Spain, the other to the newly-crowned king in Ireland named Eochaidh.
The stone remained in Ireland from about 570 B.C. until 834 A.D. when it was taken to Scotland. It remained there in the Abbey of Scone until the English confiscated it and brought it to London in 1296. By the Treaty of Northampton, it was supposed to be returned to Scotland in 1330, but the nobles prevented this from being carried out. Hence, it remained under the Coronation Chair in London for 700 years until it was returned in 1996.
The Coronation Stone is a symbol of the divine authority and right to rule. Its return in 1996 prophesied of the transfer of authority to the saints of the Most High, according to Daniel 7:27,
"Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Most High..."
This was timed to occur after the four beast kingdoms had run their course, and the "little horn" as well. It is an end-time prophecy.
Hence, Prince Andrew presided over the Coronation Stone as it was given back to Scotland. Scotland's "patron saint" is Saint Andrew. It was returned on November 30, which is St. Andrews Day. Andrew means "man, manly." So we saw this as the princes of men giving the dominion to the saints of the Most High--the Saint Andrew company.
While this occurred prophetically in 1996, the Hezekiah extension has delayed this transfer of authority until 2011. We are now in that transition from Nov. 14-30, 2011.
The Coronation of the Overcomers was prophesied ten years ago, Nov. 14, 2001. "Hezekiah" died Oct. 8, 2011, and we are now seeing the procession leading to the coronation ceremony on Nov. 30.
These are momentous times. Get ready to fulfill your destiny.
