It is Done
Oct 09, 2006
On October 7, 2006 I gathered in Babylon, New York with a group of 35 to bear witness of the time of the seventh vial. We were led to drive to four different cemeteries, pouring out water at two locations and wine at two other locations.
We met first at St. Joseph's cemetery, now called North Babylon Cemetery, near the statue of Joseph holding the baby Jesus. This little enclave was built for people to come and grieve for their children who had died or who had been aborted. There I read Psalm 105, according to the word of the Lord to my friends, David and Sherry. What they probably did not realize was that this psalm was traditionally read on the first day of the feast of Tabernacles in the synagogues in Jesus' day. Since October 7 was the first of Tabernacles, I recognized its significance.
Likewise, this psalm corresponds to Numbers 20, the story of Moses striking the rock, which is why verse 41 says,
"He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. For He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant."
The psalms are divided into five books to correspond to the five books of Moses. Psalm 1-41 is "The Genesis Book." Psalm 42-72 is "The Exodus Book." Psalm 73-89 is "The Leviticus Book." Psalm 90-106 is "The Numbers Book." Psalm 107-150 is "The Deuteronomy Book."
I have been working on a new commentary on the Psalms for the past two years, and correlating each psalm to its particular story in Moses' books is a key feature to understanding its background, along with its prophetic significance.
Anyway, as I said, Psalm 105 happens to correlate with Numbers 20 and the story of Moses striking the rock the second time. Moses was supposed to speak to the rock that time, but he did not. The two occasions where the rock brought forth water represent the two works of Christ. The first time the rock was supposed to be struck, because it prophesied of Christ's death on the cross, out of which came forth the water of the Spirit at Pentecost.
The second time, however, Moses was only to speak to the rock, because Christ did not have to die a second time for the Holy Spirit to be poured out. Moses broke this prophetic type, however, and this was enough to keep him out of the Promised Land.
Nevertheless, the vials of water that we have been pouring out since the year 2000 are signified by this second occasion of water out of the rock. This time, however, it is a spoken command to fulfill what Moses was unable to do in his day.
So this is how the work on October 7th was begun at St. Joseph's cemetery. It is perhaps also significant that the two works of Christ come through Judah and Joseph, as I explained in my book, The Laws of the Second Coming. Jesus was born of the tribe of Judah first in order to receive the Dominion Mandate of the House of Judah through King David. But the second time, Jesus comes with his robe dipped in blood (Rev. 19:13), because He comes to receive the Birthright (Fruitfulness Mandate) of Joseph, whose robe was dipped in blood (Gen. 37:31).
Thus, it was appropriate that the Lord said to meet at St. Joseph's cemetery. I poured out a vial of water, putting a blessing upon the place and asking God to pour out His Holy Spirit upon the Church and the whole world.
We then drove to the North Amityville cemetery, where I read Psalm 51. This was David's great prayer of repentance. It is the 528th chapter of the Bible, which signifies the Key of David. The Hebrew word for "key" has a gematria of 528.
Last year at the Feast of Tabernacles held in Denver, we received the "key" by prophetic word. Denver's elevation is 5280 feet above sea level, the "mile-high city." This year the key is opening the door in the Philadelphia area, where we are holding this year's Tabernacles meetings.
The key of David is mentioned in Isaiah 22:22,
"And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open."
This verse is referenced in Rev. 3:7 in the message to the Church of Philadelphia,
"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth and no man shuts, and shuts, and no man opens."
So it was appropriate that we would go from Denver last year to Philadelphia this year. I believe that this marks the time of what has been long known as The Open Door Ministry, which is a world-wide ministry on a scale that we have been unable to do up to this time. This is also the purpose of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for without that increased anointing, we would be unable to deal with the magnitude of the world situation.
Yes, our vision is great and our goals equal to the task. We believe that God is interested in His entire creation, and we believe that He has been training people for a long time for such a time as this. The work is far too big for any single person or group. But God knows those who are His, and that time of ministry is drawing near.
So we went to North Amityville to pour out the first vial of wine. This signified judgment upon Babylon. I read Psalm 51, because though the oppressive Babylonian system is to be destroyed, the purpose of that destruction is to set the people free, to open their eyes, to cause them to repent, so that they may become citizens of the Kingdom of God.
Toward this end, I (we) commanded Babylon to submit to Jesus Christ. We took its spiritual rulers captive (Lucifer, King of Babylon) and Jezebel (Queen of Heaven), sending them to Jesus for judgment and consumption. I (we) also declared the new structure of freedom to replace the old enslavement to structure and forms of Babylon. Let the mind-generated patterns of the old Babylonian structure of control be dissolved and then be raised in newness of life under the command of the Spirit of Love. We decreed the Law of Love as the Prime Directive.
Let the harvest of our labor of love begin. We declare a rest for the heavens, the earth, and those under the earth. We declare a sabbath-rest, wherein we may enjoy the fruits of our labor as our inheritance.
For this occasion, Janice brought a rock about the size of my fist. It had ancient writing on it, because it came from the old city of Babylon and is about 4600 years old (the days of Nimrod). I poured out the vial of wine upon this rock, signifying that the wine was being poured out upon Babylon.
Also, we noted that this Amityville cemetery is bounded by streets bearing the name of the presidents of the United States. Thus, this prayer of repentance (Psalm 51) was on behalf of America itself and the presidents who had sinned and made bad decisions throughout the past.
We were particularly noting all the broken treaties with the various Indian tribes. In biblical precedent, when Joshua made a treaty with the Gibeonites, and later Saul persecuted them, God judged Israel for breaking their treaty. The seven sons of Saul were hanged on the first day of barley harvest (now called "Easter") because of Saul's sin. Saul's sin brought three years of famine to Israel in the days of King David (2 Sam. 21:1).
Today, we have seen the fruits of this, because in our day we have experienced the famine of hearing the word of the Lord (Amos 8:11). So in part, the purpose of this vial of wine was to repent on behalf of America itself, so that God might break this famine of hearing the word. This, I believe, has been one of the things that has blocked this final outpouring of the Spirit and has blinded the eyes of the Church in America.
We next drove to Mount Ararat cemetery to pour out the second vial of wine. We read Psalm 15, for this cemetery is located on 15th street and Hwy. 109. Noah's ark came to rest on Ararat (Gen. 8:4), the waters prevailed 15 cubits above the mountains (Gen. 7:20). All of this speaks of the greater flood of the Holy Spirit that is to come in the latter days.
Psalm 15 tells us the qualifications of the one who will abide in His Holy Hill. Among the disqualifications is putting one's money out to usury (vs. 5), which the Bible defines as theft and oppression of the poor. Here we prayed to overthrow the spirit of greed and usury while pouring out the vial of wine.
Finally, we drove to Trinity cemetery, where I again prayed a blessing upon the Church and the world and asked for the Holy Spirit to be poured out. As I poured out the second vial of water from the Mississippi River ("The River of the Holy Spirit"), I said, "IT IS DONE."
The word "done" seems to have a double meaning. Usually, the Greek word is translated "to be, exist, or come." In other words, the end is also a new beginning. The work of pouring out the seven vials is done, but the new work has also begun.
In addition to this, the Lord spoke to me and said that this also indicates that Babylon's job of judging the world is now done, or completed. Many years ago, God raised up Babylon to judge Jerusalem. The original city had only a 70-year mandate, but the extended Babylonian system of world empires was to extend for a much longer period of time. That is now completed, and so once its divine purpose has been fulfilled, it may be cast out.
There are, of course, more details and ramifications of all this, but enough has been written for now to give you the basic outline of the events of that day. I will, no doubt, have more to say when those issues surface at a later time.
