Water and fire from the dragon's mouth
Jan 24, 2013
The warfare against the red dragon, begun last November, was in two parts. December 19 ended part one, where we saw the red dragon cast down from heaven, as per Revelation 12:1-12. Though I cannot give any details, due to confidentiality of people involved, we know that this battle centered in Australia.
Part 2 of this battle resumed in early January. We saw the first sign of this here in Minneapolis with the flood of water that I reported in my weblog for January 4, 2013.
This sign was unique because it matched Revelation 12:15,
15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.
I was a bit surprised that this sign occurred here in Minneapolis, because I would have thought that Australia would be a more likely place, since that was the location of the first part of this battle. However, I can flow with whatever we see, so I accepted it as the first sign of the continuing battle.
Of course, what we did not realize at the time was that the wildfires were just getting started at the same time in Australia, both in Tasmania and on the mainland in New South Wales, Victoria, and perhaps other places as well. Sometimes it takes a few days or a week before fires are seen to be truly catastrophic. On January 8, the following article appeared:
COOMA, Australia (AP) — Firefighters battled scores of wildfires Tuesday in southeastern Australia as authorities evacuated national parks and warned that hot, dry and windy conditions were combining to raise the threat to its highest alert level....
"You don't get conditions worse than this," New South Wales Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said. "We are at the catastrophic level and clearly in those areas leaving early is your safest option."
Catastrophic threat level is the most severe rating.
And so, we have seen both water and fire coming from the dragon's mouth. The two events, one in Minneapolis and the other in Australia, appear to connect us with Australia in this warfare. Both water and fire started about the same time.
These fires are still raging, but since we know they are caused by the rage of the red dragon, we can also say that there is light at the end of the tunnel. This battle will be won by January 27, and then I expect to see the effects of this battle begin to dissipate. After this, the preparation for Kingdom work ahead should be able to proceed without hindrance. February should be an interesting month.
