Like Wood to the Fire (Hydrant)
Dec 12, 2009
People have sent me their confirmations in regard to the importance of December 11, 2009. So I believe it is "established" that we have come to a very important turning point.
Tiger Woods decided to quit golf, at least for now, following the revelation of a few problems in his personal life. Here is his public statement, dated December 11:
2010 is the Year of the Tiger in China. We have just completed the Year of the Ox, which began while we were having our conference in Modesto, California at the Clarion Inn last January. A clarion is a small trumpet that is known for its clarity. Hence, the word clarion means "shrill and clear." We related this to the horns of the Ox, the symbol of Joseph in Deut. 33:17,
"As the first-born of his ox, majesty is his, and his horns are the horns of the wild ox; with them he shall push the peoples, all at once, to the ends of the earth. And those are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and those are the thousands of Manasseh."
This was one of the early indications that 2009 would relate prophetically to Joseph, and it was why we held the Passover conference in Manassas, VA last April.
So the next year is 2010, the Year of the Tiger. It looks like we are already seeing the signs of the times emerging, with Tiger Woods being at the forefront. The exposure of hidden things may be the beginning of the fulfillment of the Rock and Roll prophecy that I posted on August 22. The last part of the prophecy reads:
This nation shall quake and shake,
Fearfulness shall grip the heart,
Till Washington DC shall come apart.
Till every man’s sins shall be made bare,
Till all the truth shall be declared.
There will be no place for them to hide,
To run for shelter,
From how they’ve lied.
Like [Tiger] wood to the fire [hydrant],
the truth shall be made known,
Till all is seen, till all is shown.
Recall that Tiger Woods was exposed after he backed into a fire hydrant, trying to escape his wife's deadly golf swing.
The once-pristine image of golf superstar Tiger Woods took more blows Thursday after disclosures that neighbors found him lying shoeless and snoring on his Isleworth street after he plowed his SUV into a fire hydrant and tree.
Obviously, Tiger Woods is a sign of things yet to come to Washington D.C. It appears quite possible that this will manifest in the Year of the Tiger, 2010.
On another note, I was reminded by a reader from Northern Ireland that General Allenby took Jerusalem on the 24th day of the 9th month in 1917. In that year it fell on December 9, 1917, the day he captured Jerusalem. He then entered the city on foot two days later on December 11, according to the article below.
RE; Dec. 11, 2009, is the 24th day of the 9th month on the Hebrew calender -It interested me as I was reminded that on Dec.11, 1917 the "prophet-of God" Allah-en-nebi ( i.e. General Allenby ) entered into Jerusalem. And, "BLESSED is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and thirty five days" ( 1917 ). Dan.12:12.Now I wonder if there is any application to New Jerusalem?
Yes, Bill, it has everything to do with the New Jerusalem now, although we do recognize that in order to establish "Sarah" (New Jerusalem), one must simultaneously cast out the bondwoman ("Hagar"), which is Old Jerusalem.
Not many know the story of General Allenby. There was an old Arabic saying to the effect that "when the waters of the Nile flow to Jerusalem, only then will the city fall." Allenby piped water from the Nile for his troops as they fought their way toward Jerusalem. It was not lost on the locals that Allenby sounded a lot like "Allah-en-nebi." This is why the Turkish army left Jerusalem, and Allenby took it without firing a shot.
1917 was also 2,520 years after Nebuchadnezzar took Jerusalem in 604 B.C. So it is one of the great moments in prophetic history that all students of prophecy must know in order to have any grasp of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy in modern times.
So yesterday was the 92nd anniversary of Allenby's walk into Jerusalem. The number 92, of course, is 2 x 46, and most of you are aware of the importance of 46 from John 2:20. The Greek word naos, "temple," occurs 46 times in the NT. Levi has a numeric value of 46 in Hebrew, as well as Adam in Greek. All are associated with the fleshly/natural man that must be set aside in order to manifest the greater Temple, the Melchizedek priesthood, and the Last Adam.
Putting it all together, it looks like 2010 is the year where the sins of the fleshly man and his government is to be exposed and treated "like wood to the fire."
