More thoughts on Harvey
Aug 28, 2017
The tropical depression which later grew into Hurricane Harvey began on Thursday, August 17 as it came into the Caribbean Sea south of the Gulf of Mexico. It crossed the Yucatan Peninsula on August 23, emerging at 7:00 a.m. in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. From there is intensified quickly and within 2 days it was a Category 4 Hurricane that hit Rockport, TX just 30 miles north of Corpus Christi, TX.
I found a weather report online that was dated August 23, 2017.
Harvey is likely to survive its journey and reach the southwestern Gulf of Mexico at midweek [i.e., August 23].
"Another opportunity for regeneration and strengthening may take place over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico from Wednesday to Friday," Kottlowski said. [August 23-25]
On July 4, 2017 I first mentioned a word that God had given me to being preparing for a prayer campaign on August 23. Its main purpose was “protection,” but I was given no further details. I mentioned this at the end of my report:
Our heavenly Father is leading us to hold a prayer campaign on August 23, 2017. I do not know much about it yet, but so far we understand that this will be designed to pray for protection for God’s people during the fall of Babylon that is coming. This would also include protection in the midst of physical disasters.
This world is a dangerous place, and it is getting to be more dangerous each year. There is hardly a place that is safe, at least from the natural view. So we should not think in terms of safety, but in being where God wants us to be. That is always the safest place to be.
Now that the date has come and gone, things are much clearer. I had thought this might refer to an earthquake and tsunami in the Pacific Northwest, but that event is yet to come, I believe. Meanwhile, the flooding in Texas is “a sign of Noah.” In Noah’s day, after the first week of rain, they called it a 500-year flood. After two weeks, it was a 1000-year flood. After that, the presses went silent.
Robbie Yeats called me just now while I was writing this report. His discernment is that the Manchild is ready to be birthed (September 23?), and that the water broke with Hurricane Harvey. Texas is positioned at the belly of America, so that is why it is happening there. Earlier I had a call from Kevin Peters, who lives in Houston. He reported rain still coming down, which was being received by faith. Mr. PETERS organized our Tabernacles conference in Houston in 2004 when we celebrated the fifth sign in the book of John--when Jesus walked on the water and PETER went out to meet Him.
Our prayer campaign was designed to pray for protection upon those in Texas who are affected by the rain. That is now clear. God does not normally give me a word about a prayer campaign until a short time before the time. This time, however, I got the word about 7-8 weeks early. That has happened only a few times in the past. When this happens, I know it is important for some reason.
Harvey seems to be in no hurry to leave Texas. Usually, hurricanes move on, and things go back to normal. This time, however, the rains continue, and as time goes on, it is resembling more and more Noah’s flood. I think NOAA might even rename this storm after itself!
For many years I have taught that Noah’s flood removed the spirit/breath from man, but that there is another flood coming—a flood of the Holy Spirit—that will put His Spirit back into man. The day of Pentecost in Acts 2 was a partial fulfillment of this prophecy. The greater work is yet coming, as Habakkuk 2:14 prophesies,
14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
Noah’s flood was commemorated by Psalm 8, which prophesies how some day all things will be put under the feet of Christ (Psalm 8:6). Paul quotes this a number of times in the New Testament, speaking of the Restoration of All Things. (See 1 Corinthians 15:27, 28; Hebrews 2:8). By divine providence, Psalm 8 was the first passage of Scripture that I ever memorized. I was in first grade, but it established the foundations of my ministry as time passed.
The psalms are divided into five books, one for each of the books of the Pentateuch. This is recognized in the NASB. In the Genesis Book of Psalms (Psalms 1-41), each psalm correlates with a story in Genesis. Psalm 1 is about Adam in the Garden; Psalm 2 is about Cain killing Abel. Psalm 7 is about the flood. Psalm 8 is the aftermath of the flood, when Noah steps out into a new world.
But David wrote Psalm 8 to commemorate his victory over Goliath. Goliath represents the oppressive governments of the earth. So Hurricane Harvey is designed prophetically to give us victory over the modern Goliath—the Babylonian system that is ruled in secret by the descendants of the Nephilim.
Harvey is a type of the new flood of Noah, but also connects with David’s victory over Goliath, prophesying what is happening in 2017 as we near the end of the Babylonian beast system. In that sense, our prayer campaign was designed to build an ark for the people of faith. The Ark is Jesus Christ. All other boats tend to leak.
There is plenty of room in our Ark. All are welcome.
