Being about our Father's business
Apr 02, 2012
The conference in Manassas this past week end was very good as usual. The main theme or revelation was "I must be about my Father's business" (Luke 2:49). The heart of the conference was reached Saturday evening when Steve Correll gave a short teaching and then led the group to pray for each other.
There were about a half dozen people healed as a result. Not everyone was healed who needed it, but nonetheless, it represented a pretty good start.
This was really a training class. One of the most valuable insights of the evening was how to overcome the fear of failure. "What if the person is not healed? Well, what if the person IS healed?"
If you recall, last October at our St. Louis conference, we took note that September 1999 was the 2000th anniversary of Jesus' birth. It marked a very important beginning point in prophetic history, because it was also the birth of the Remnant company, which is following the pattern of Manasseh, son of Hezekiah.
In fact, this was the basis of one of my teachings at St. Louis, as I awoke that morning with the revelation that "Hezekiah is dead; long live Manasseh." Back in September of 1996, we prophetically declared the 120th Jubilee and invoked the Hezekiah Factor. This not only turned the clock back 10 years to 1986, but also implied a 15-year extension in the life of Hezekiah. (See 2 Kings 20.)
The 10-year Hezekiah Factor, turning the clock back from 1996 to 1986 is explained fully in my book, Secrets of Time.
The 15-year Extension of Hezekiah's life applied from the Day of Atonement in 1996 to the Day of Atonement in 2011 (ending while we were in St. Louis).
Hence, prophetically speaking, Hezekiah "died" during our St. Louis conference last October. It also marked the start of the reign of his son, Manasseh. 2 Kings 21:1 says, "Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign." Therefore, we could say that Manasseh was "born" in 1999, coinciding roughly with the 2000th anniversary of Jesus' birth.
Hence, we understood the overlay of Jesus and Manasseh. Jesus Christ is the Head, but Manasseh represents the body of the overcoming Remnant. Isaiah prophesied this in 2 Kings 19:30 when Hezekiah, who was childless at the time, was being threatened by the Assyrian army. Judah was in danger of losing its monarchy, which God had promised to David as never-ending.
Manasseh thus represents the Remnant, and this is one of Isaiah's most prominent themes. (Isaiah 7:3; 8:18; 10:21).
When we overlay the prophecies of Jesus and Manasseh at the age of 12, it can be seen that we must now be about our Father's business, even as Jesus Himself prophesied at the age of 12. We saw last October that the Remnant--like Manasseh--had just come to the throne. But Jesus prophesied of being about His Father's business during the feast of Passover.
Hence, we understood that we would have to await the time of Passover in 2012 before coming fully to that time. So being about our Father's business was the primary theme of this conference, and Steve Correll was led to take the first step in training us in doing the works that Jesus would do.
I reminded the people during that session that we were all just 12 years old and were just learning how to overcome fear of failure. It is like we were in grade school. With the pressure lifted, we did not have to worry about success or failure. Our only concern was to step out in faith and begin to act like Christians ("little Christs").
The result was that a half dozen people were healed, some fully and others partially healed. We believe that those who received a partial healing will continue to see improvement over time.
Of course, as for timing, this conference did not occur at the actual Passover. The meeting room was not available for next week end, so we got it a week early (the week end of Palm Sunday). This carried many other implications, including a connection to the feast of Tabernacles (palm branches--Lev. 23:40), because the people waved palm branches when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on that day (John 12:13).
It was a day that prophesied VICTORY, because it was a "triumphal entry into Jerusalem." But perhaps more to the point, it marked the time that Christ came to His final place of destiny that had been ordained from the beginning. His destiny at that time was to die on the cross, because this was prophesied in the laws regarding the first work of Christ. We today have a different destiny, because it is a time of preaching the word of God with boldness, rather than a time to die as martyrs.
It is for this reason, I believe, that the normal Passover conference had to be altered to Palm Sunday, which is a type of Tabernacles. It is the time of the second work of Christ, which is no longer focused upon Passover, but upon Tabernacles.
What Jesus might have initiated--had it been His destiny to be accepted as Messiah at that time--was postponed to a later time. It is the work that we are called to do as His Body, the Remnant company, typified by Manasseh, son of Hezekiah.
Those of you who are new to these blogs, or if you simply missed the revelation that I wrote about on October 12, 2011, I suggest that you go back and read those reports or get the DVD. The DVD is available at
I also gave a review this past week end in my usual timing update in the progression of the Kingdom. These will be available shortly also.
Since Passover and the wave-sheaf offering are to occur later this week, we may also see a secondary beginning point for this prophetic work. Keep in mind that Jesus was in the temple for 3 days after Passover while Joseph and Mary were on their way home from Jerusalem. Hence, we ought to watch the next week for further clues as to the prophetic meaning of these things.
