I have been documenting the prophecies from almost 3 years ago (2007) and the fulfillment of them all. Jesus Christ is indeed “doing a new thing” and that can be seen by evidence of rivers in the desert, just as He promised to…
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. – Isa 43:19
Yes… God is LITERALLY making a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert… just as He said He would, in posts on this blog 2-3 years ago.
As we watch this, powerful people – Sabeans – maybe wondering how this impacts them and their interests?!
God is not intending to replace governments or remove democracy or erode personal freedoms. Instead He says of Himself that He is the One who teaches us how to profit! He gave angels the freedom to rebel and gave freedom to Adam and Eve to make a mistake that change everything.
Instead, what is coming is His very Presence on the earth. It is often called the Holy City/city of the living God, the new/heavenly Jerusalem…
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. – Heb 12:22-25
Indeed what we are building is described in Isaiah, Ezekiel and Revelations…
Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him: “Ask me of things to come; will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands? I made the earth and created man on it; it was my hands that stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host. I have stirred him up in righteousness, and I will make all his ways level; he shall build my city and set my exiles free, not for price or reward,” says the LORD of hosts.
Thus says the LORD: “The wealth of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush, and the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to you and be yours; they shall follow you; they shall come over in chains and bow down to you. They will plead with you, saying: ‘Surely God is in you, and there is no other, no god besides him.'” Truly, you are a God who hides himself, O God of Israel, the Savior. – Isa 45:11-15
And in there is a promise that God will use people to provide the wealth to build this city. They are referred to as Sabeans, people of status and power. Traders across the seas.
At this point I should point out that because it is a spiritual city, we don’t need money for a literal wall. Don’t send bricks! 🙂
Both Ezekiel and Revelations describe how the writers saw the city “in the Spirit”…
Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying,
“Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God,
having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed… – Rev 21:9-12
He put out the form of a hand and took me by a lock of my head, and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the gateway of the inner court that faces north… – Eze 8:3
But having said that it is built spiritually and descends from Heaven, it certainly can be felt physically! It is a specific location which can be entered and left at will…
By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day–and there will be no night there. They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. – Rev 21:24-26
So although it is a spiritual city, it has a known location, it can be felt, it can be entered and departed from. God is manifestly present there.
It is encouraging to note that in those verses that nations still have leaders who still have the freedom to choose what they do and don’t do. They choose to come to the city. The city must be quite compelling if leaders take time from their schedule to come.
I have had a dream about this city and specifically about it’s current progress… meaning… how much of it has “arrived” from Heaven. Some friends will remember that I have been saying that His Kingdom is “descending” and I’ve been saying that and even blogging that, for about two years now.
The dream has clarified just how far along we are now. The north wall, corners and gates are built! God showed me a map and said “what do you see?” as He motioned His hand towards an open flat “map” between us. Was it a map? I’m not sure. I was looking at what seemed like a city.
I had no idea that Ezekiel had his own … I had never read Ezekiel, having spent all of my time in Isaiah and the New Testament.
In visions of God he brought me to the land of Israel, and set me down on a very high mountain, on which was a structure like a city to the south. When he brought me there, behold, there was a man whose appearance was like bronze, with a linen cord and a measuring reed in his hand. And he was standing in the gateway. And the man said to me, “Son of man, look with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart upon all that I shall show you,
for you were brought here in order that I might show it to you. Declare all that you see to the house of Israel.” – Eze 40:2-4
Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, – Rev 21:9-10
After He showed me the map, I did nothing about it. I just wondered about it. Then after several weeks I was inspired to wonder… why is the NORTH wall built first?
I searched the scriptures… the answers appear to be:
- The north wall is closest to the tribes of Benjamin and Judah, the two tribes that chose to build the city when they returned from Babylon
- The north wall faces the direction from which invasions usually come
- The NORTH gate is like the service entrance… it is the gate through which the sacrifices were brought. The EAST gate (not built yet) is the one through which He enters and fills the temple with His Presence. The East gate is the one people come in through to participate in the sacrifices or to be a part of the worship… or whatever is happening in the temple. But the NORTH is how the things to be used are brought in… so sort of like a service entrance.
This is all tremendously exciting. And while some would like to rubbish it, others will be decidely for this… and the third group may be undecided… but surely only until they look at the ABUNDANCE of prophecies with matching fulfillment. Impossible things were promised and they are occuring. So why not this too? One complaint could be that it’s too big, or my own history is too imperfect, or countless objections. With love, I say to you I say..
But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. – 2Co 4:7
If I was classy, strong, well connected and highly educated, you could be confused into thinking that somehow I could manufacture all of this. But instead, I eat baked beans on toast on days when I don’t have income – which is more often than not. I have no car to get to church, don’t live in a place of my own, don’t own more than a few clothes and a few books and a laptop.
I scrounge around to buy airtime or to get internet connectivity, mostly using free internet places. I struggle with addictions. I’m overcoming a disastrous past. I’m a divorcee. I barely made it through school.
Clearly it’s not me who is doing this. And I’m delighted at that. It is all Him. Jesus Christ is the only possible explanation for what is occuring. Objective analysis can only conclude that there is a great force at work in what is being documented on this blog – and increasingly on countless other blogs around the world.
It is an unavoidable conclusion for anyone who takes the time to measure what was promised to come and what has then come later.
