Discerning this Time and Season
What I want to share about, I would call it discerning this time and season. The sons of Issachar were known as those who discerned the times and seasons. They recognized, they understood.
And one of the things I’ve been praying for us is to Succat Hallel; I prayed for the prayer movement worldwide is that we would be sons of Issachar: sons and daughters of Issachar that we would discern, discern times and seasons, what God is doing, because there are many voices that could call us to this or that, and we can begin to get distracted.
Important to Focus
And it’s so important that we have focus, that we know what is God focusing on right now. Now what I’m going to share is not necessarily what God is having everyone to the whole world focus on, but I believe He’s calling us to focus upon as a community on these specific things. Some of them I’ve been sharing in public, different Zoom calls and things, and putting, getting a surprising response that God is speaking the same things in other nations very strongly.
What to Press in For
So I’d like to share some things that I feel about discerning this time and this season, what are we to be pressing in for, what are we to be believing for in this time and season? And like to start by going back to 2016, most of you are aware of this, but I just, this lays a foundation for everything else. And those were visions of shakings, a series of visions that were given in October and November of 2016.
And in those visions that one of the first visions was a vision of shakings happening, actually in the vision, it was like the whole Temple Mount and Western wall area were in a threshing basket, I think I have a picture of this. Yeah, threshing basket, a big wide basket, and, and the Lord was throwing it in the air. And as you know, with threshing, what happens is the wind comes and it blows away that, which is not, which is not nourishing, that which is not worth keeping and that which is worth keeping the good green falls down. So the chaff is blown away, and the good green comes down.
So I think it’s really important to realize that in these shakings, God already warned in 2016 that it would be like a time of threshing. It would be a time of him as it were tossing things in the air, and of the wind of the Holy Spirit blowing away things that needed to be blown away. But that, which is eternal again, he says I will shake what all things that can be shaken, so that the things which cannot be shaken will remain.
So His shaking is not a bad thing, it’s a good thing. It’s getting rid of things that are not nourishing. It’s getting rid of things that are not good. It’s getting rid of things that are not lasting, so that the things that last will remain.
And again, going back, He, the first one He, I saw as He began to shake it began then to go out and ripples into the nations. Very soon after that we had a big shaking on the Temple Mount. Some of you will remember where they discovered weapons and that had been hidden in the, in The Dome of the Rock, I believe it was, or one of the it may have been at one of the mosques up there.
And as a result, they were trying to put in metal detectors, there were riots. I mean, all kinds of, there was a huge shaking.
It looked like it could turn into another Intifada another bus bombing type time, but God intervened. And this is one of the things I saw in the shaking set. There would be shakings, but then there would be times where it would just settle down again, and then there’d be another shaking.
But He showed me that one of the things in the shakings, I saw this huge drop of water in the sky. I come out of the, as he was shaking everything. And I thought, Lord, you know, what is this? And I felt like He was saying, the shaking is going to shake loose things that are keeping water from coming into the very driest places.
And you’re going to start seeing water, rivers in the desert. You’re going to start seeing wells at the desert. You’re going to find in some of the very, very driest places I’m going to begin pouring out my, my spirit. I’m going to begin bringing people to myself.
I’m going to be doing things in places where people never expected it. Now, not too long ago, I was on a call with people from Saudi Arabia, and they were sharing what was going on there. And I can’t even share all of it publicly, but huge things.
Shaking in Saudi Arabia
There is a mighty move of God right now in Saudi Arabia in the last year. They said everything just almost like everything shifted in a year. And suddenly there was a boldness, even among people who never before would ever, you know, already it was very dangerous to share their, their faith privately. And they said some have even been sharing their faith publicly on the call, the Muslim radicals at the, they show, their face and former Muslims.
Yeah, yeah, be clear on that, former Muslim background believers in other words, who showed their face and it’s an amazing thing, from Israel, we’re blessing Saudi Arabia, from Saudi Arabia they’re blessing Israel. I mean it’s God is, is moving in some very, some of the driest places in the world bringing water right now.
God in Control of Shakings
And a second thing that He would, well not a second thing, but something He said about all the shakings. He said, “Know that I’m in control of each shaking so that even when you may not feel like I am, I am.”
So He was warning us in 2016 already saying know that I’m in control of each shaking even when you may not feel like I am in control. So we need to keep in perspective the fact that all the chaos that is unleashed during a shaking is in the end, only temporary, but his kingdom is eternal.
Now I, the Lord opened the door for me to share this whole these series of visions in Hong Kong in 2019. And they were at a time of demonstrations in the streets and it looked like it was going to go out of control. It looked like there’s going to be a military blood bath there. And, and it was a group of people not only from Hong Kong, but from mainland China.
God Prepares People for Lockdown
And so there were actually other, at least, I think there were about 15,000 Chinese that were there in this gathering in Hong Kong. And when I shared it, I was with fear and trembling because I felt like the Lord said to tell them the shaking here in Hong Kong for the moment, will calm down, and later there will be another shaking.
But right after the shaking in Hong Kong begins to calm down, I will begin to shake China in a major way. And right after that was when the whole coronavirus thing came out in China within weeks, it came out and a pastor wrote to me from Wuhan and said, thank God that you gave that word. Because she said, when they were, when we were seeing, you know, bodies in the streets, when we were seeing severe, severe lockdown.
She said, I just felt like Lord, what is happening? It just felt so out of control, the Lord reminded me of that word you gave that we would be shaken, but that it, it would calm down after a while then there’ll be another shaking, but that in all the shakings, we could trust Him to be in control, even when it doesn’t feel like He’s in control.
God with Wuhan Church
And she said, it helped us in some of the most severe times in Wuhan for the church to know, okay, God is with us. He’s not forgotten us. God is shaking all things that can be shaken so that that which can not be shaken, would remain.
And she said, one of the main results was the Lord showed them all to start taking the Lord’s supper in their homes with a small group, with their family, when they were shut down to their family was many of their families were not believers. And so they took it in front of their family, and their family began asking them.
And she said, people started coming to the Lord in the homes and in small groups because of what the Lord had told them to do in the middle of the shaking. So once again it’s how God, you know, He, His ways are just higher than our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.
And a second vision that He gave was of, and this is in 2016, was a vision of tumult and confusion in the nations and an accelerated polarization of life of light and darkness. And what I saw in this was that you see the photo that I showed there. I saw that in many cities there would be riots. There would be confusion. There would be tumult. There would be chaos. This was in 2016.
Shaking Throughout World
He said, when the shakings begin there will be a moment where in many cities of the world there will be a lot of chaos and a lot of confusion, he said, but what I’m doing in it, I’m separating light from darkness. So He showed me, it was like He was on the Temple Mount above the Temple Mount on a throne.
And He had this bar in front of Him that looks like the top one here is was dark at one end, light at the other end. But most of the middle was gray. And He said, this is the way it is right now. There’s a lot of gray of compromise of of things that are not true different things that are great, but He said what I’m going to do. And He took His hands like this, and He just went and suddenly everything was either like really light or really dark.
God to Clarify Things
And He said, what I’m going to do is make much clearer to those who are genuinely seeking for light to know what is light and what is darkness. It won’t be so confusing. It won’t be so compromised.
He said, I’m going to do the same thing in My church. There was a lot of compromise that I’m going to just get to expose that it will become clear which are the true ones following me and which are ones just following me in name and living in darkness.
It’s just going to get my light is going to shine. He said, it will be this whole season of shakings will be a time of polarization of light and darkness making it clearer what is light and clearer what is the darkness.
Shaking to Follow Shaking
I won’t go into great detail on that. But number three or the third vision, He showed me in this vision that during this time of all these shakings and He showed it with be shaking after shaking. Once it began. I, I’m sorry, I hope that’s not bad news for you. It’s not, it’s good news. Cause He’s in control.
But He showed me that when it looked like a shaking was going to spin out of control, it would come back down and it’d be like a birth pang, be like a contraction of a woman having, giving birth. And He said during those times, breathe, because another contraction will come, another shaking will come and receive my strength for the next shaking.
We don’t know what those will be. He didn’t say exactly what they would be. He just said it would be one shaking after another. He didn’t say how long in between. It might be very long in between shakings. But He said, once that’s really begun which I believe was in 2019, when I was there to Hong Kong, I felt that, and now it’s coming in the nations.
Shakings to be Blessings
And, and so, but he showed me during that time, we had these little baskets of loaves and fishes and we came when the, when a shaking would die down we would bring our little basket of loaves and fishes. And we think the loaves represented miracles, healings and the fishes represented people coming to the Lord.
And we would bring them before the Lord. And remember it said when they brought the little boy brought to the disciples the loaves and fishes prayed the blessing over that. And so He, He, He gave thanks.
The blessing is always, it’s a giving thanks. He gave thanks for it. And then it was multiplied. And so in this vision, I saw us bringing like the little boy this is all I have these little tiny basket before you, but He, we gave thanks.
Blessings to Increase
And as we were thankful for what He’d already done then He took away the basket and He gave back a bigger basket. It had more fish and more loaves in it. And then another shaking would come.
And then when it would die down, He would, we would go, and we say, Lord, thank you for that we had more loaves and more fishes. We give it to Him. And then He gave a medium-sized basket, and then a larger basket than a larger basket.
And every time in between the shakings the basket would get larger and larger. There would be more and more fish. There would be more and more bread. In other words, more and more miracles and healings.
Concentrate on Blessings
And I believe with all my heart, because God said this in 2016, and I believe, you know, Monday in the watch we were singing house of miracles, Brandon Lake song. And this is a house of miracles.
We felt we need to proclaim this by faith over ourselves, that we are a house of miracles. We’re a house of healing, and not get stuck in disappointments, not get stuck in things that, that have been traumatic or disappointing to us.
The early church actually, we always think of it as just so, so glorious, all these tremendous, amazing miracles and things. Paul’s handkerchief being taken out, Peter passing by in the shadow. People get healed, but they also had disappointments.
They had a leader who was executed when they thought he’d be released miraculously, like Peter had been released and they had another leader who was stoned to death whether they thought, you know, where there were others like Paul was stoned and got up and walked away after being stoned to death, a huge miracle.
Key is Thanksgiving
So we don’t understand everything, but we must not allow disappointments to cut us off from what God wants to do.
And as we do that, then He begins to multiply and the baskets just got larger and larger and larger. But the key was thanksgiving, it was those who gave thanks for what they felt was so little.
But if they gave thanks, it, it grew and it grew and it grew, and it grew, and it grew until finally there was huge numbers of miracles and healings and signs and wonders that were happening. Some of it in the very driest places, again in some of the most difficult nations, tremendous healings and miracles were coming forth in these visions.
God Delays Blessings – Waiting for Repentance
Now I’d like to go back to number two and apply that to right now, this, that was where I saw the vision of tumult confusion in the nation’s accelerated polarization of light and darkness. And here’s what I feel the Lord has been speaking.
As I’ve been praying, Lord, help me to understand certain things that we’d been praying so much for Isaiah 28, for example, that God will drop his plumb line of righteousness and justice. And that the flood of the Lord will come and wash away the refuge of lies. And that covenants with death will be exposed.
And we’ve been praying this a lot for governments. So because I, I’ve been praying that much here but I’ve also prayed it much for my home nation of America. At a certain time, it looked like things went in a very different direction than what we were praying for, for the justice for the righteousness, for truth to prevail.
But here’s what I felt. He spoke to me. He said, I could have quickly answered then if I only dealt with the fruit, but I’m going deeper. I’m going after the roots in nations in governments where people are doing second Chronicles 7:14 are, are humbling themselves, praying seeking My face, turning from their wicked ways.
I, He said, my word is still true. I will hear from heaven forgive their sin and heal their land. But He said, the only way I can do that is by going for the roots and not just the fruits. And so during a period that seems like, you know, what is going on? God wants us to know. I believe, that He is laying the axe.
Watch the video, or read the transcription below:
John the Baptist prepared the way for the great outpouring of miracles, and all that happened with Yeshua, and His life. And then after that, with His disciples.
But John the Baptist, was during a time when they weren’t seeing that yet. But there was this message of preparing the way. A strong message of justice, of righteousness, of truth, of laying the, uh, and John, the Baptist said this, “Even now, the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree, which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”
In other words, there will be a judgment upon trees that are bringing forth bad fruit. And then the people asked Him, “Well, what should we do then?” And then He went into very concrete things of repentance.
You know, this is what you need to do. This is how you, how you, uh, live out repentance in your lives. So there was this movement in Israel of repentance. There was a movement preparing the way of the Lord. And, but it was dealing with root issues.
Dealing with the Roots
And as the Lord’s made this scripture so strong, and so real to me during this time. He reminded me of a time I had to deal with some roots.
When we were first married. I think it was about three years in or something. We had bought this very dilapidated, big old house that was being sold for almost nothing, because it had sat for 18 years with no one taking care of it. Spent six months, empty things were broke, everything needed to be repaired.
And I knew nothing. And I got, uh, for Americans, we know this Reader’s Digest, how to do it, do it yourself book. So when we got married, my hands were all bruised, and messed up from trying to get pipes that were rusted, moving, and all this stuff. And I knew nothing about it, and I would occasionally call in some, you know, friend would come in and help me figure out something I didn’t know how to do.
But in front of this house we had you know, we had to take care of the inside, first. Then, outside there was this really ugly bush that had not been taken care of for 20 years. And it was big, and it was ugly, and it, it just didn’t have flowers. It wasn’t beautiful anymore it was just an ugly, ugly bush.
And I told my wife, I’ll get rid of that bush. And so I, I got a shovel, and I started shoveling around, you know, getting the little roots with that sharp shovel. Cutting them out, and then cutting the earth away. And then I’d try to pull the bush, and nothing was happening, and so, I thought, “Okay, this bush is not going to win.”
I got an axe, okay, so then I got an axe. And I took the axe and I started chopping. I’d dig out dirt and then I’d chop medium-size roots around this, this stump. And I got rid of a lot of medium-sized roots. And I thought, “Now it’ll happen.” You know and I pulled and pulled on it, and nothing, nothing happened.
I thought, “This bush is not going to win.” So, I got, I went with and axe and the shovel, I went deeper and deeper and deeper. It was, it turned into a long, difficult project. And it just got deeper and deeper. I got more and more roots. But there still was this strong taproot on this, it wasn’t that big of a bush even, but it had a deep, strong taproot.
I just couldn’t get it out. So I thought, “What do I do?” So I found a neighbor who had a truck and a chain. And I wrapped the chain around the stump. You know, it was like, looked about like that by this point, I wrapped it down deep, the chain around the stump, and then I hooked it onto the back of his truck.
And I got in the truck and I pushed on the accelerator, and it still stayed. It could not, the truck could not move it. And I just kept pushing and pushing. And suddenly I was out in the middle of the street with a lot of dirt, and a big bush, and a big taproot in the middle of the street, in front of our house.
We finally got it out. And then we planted a beautiful, nice bush with flowers, and small roots, and replaced it with that.
Lord Says Roots are Deep
But this is what I believe the Lord is saying, “This is a time of deep roots.” This is a time of axes, axe being laid to the roots. So don’t be surprised when it doesn’t seem easy. When it doesn’t just, well, “I’ve chopped, and I’ve chopped, I’ve proclaimed the word of God, and why is this not changing? Why is this not shifting?”
God is saying, keep on proclaiming His word. His word is like an axe that cuts. His word is like a rock that breaks a hammer. But there’s power in proclamation of the word of God as we keep proclaiming the scriptures.
And that’s why we keep on proclaiming, like Isaiah 28, that talks about His plumb line of justice, and righteousness, and breaking covenants of death, washing away the refuge of lies, and putting in place the chief cornerstone in Zion.
A Time for Threshings
So we need to pray that for our government, we need to pray that for the governments of nations, that God has placed upon our hearts. And, and we need to realize this is a season that is not easy, because it’s a time of dealing with deep roots.
I don’t know about you, but in my own life, I feel like God’s been dealing with roots during this the whole year of lockdowns. He’s been showing me things. He just wanted to root out and, and, and it’s worth it. It’s threshing. It’s, the basket is threshing.
That was one of the early words He gave; the Temple Mount was a threshing floor, and the glorious Temple is built on a threshing floor.
I’ve got to keep digging, and chopping, and proclaiming the word of God. This two-edged sword is an axe against these things. Eventually we will, the Lord will show us, and if we can’t get it out, then the truck, in a way, represents the angels.
Come, finally help us. We finally get it out. But they want, He wants us, in prayer, to proclaim His word to, to, to believe for these things.
But then He sends the angelic help. He sends a big motor to help us, to get, to deal with root issues. And I believe as we do that, I believe in this nation we can see some very root issues, pulled out.
Now, the other day, as we’ve been talking a lot about all these things, that, I suddenly, I was listening to the, the book of Matthew in the passion translation. And suddenly the way he translated this was amazing, because a lot of people were saying, well, Corona! Is this the end? Is this, you know, the end of everything? And just, you know, is everything going to be over soon?
This is not the End
And, and in many ways, I wish I could say it was, but I don’t believe it’s, it’s, it’s the beginning of the unfolding of the end. And that could take a long time, but God will give us His strength and grace.
So listen to what He says here, in passion translation, Matthew 24 verses 6 through 14; “You will hear of wars and revolutions on every side with more rumors of wars to come,” but He says, “don’t panic.”
That’s so key in this kind of a time. “Don’t panic or give in to your fears. For the breaking apart of the worlds systems is destined to happen.” Whoa, that just encouraged me. Cause I’ve been praying for the breaking apart of evil systems in the world.
And it was like, well Lord, is it past that time? Are you just letting the evil systems totally take over?
There is a time where, a brief time where He allows the evil systems and the Antichrist to rule. And then He judges them. And there’s the final thing, and He comes back, and all of that.
But I felt like He was encouraging us. Yeshua was saying it to His disciples, who were saying, “What’s the sign of the year?” “What should we be waiting for?” He said, “Well, there’ll be wars, revolutions, rumors of wars, but the breaking apart of the world systems is destined to happen.”
Evil World Systems to Break Apart
In other words, during this season, He is saying, we will see a breaking apart of lots of evil systems in the world. Not every evil system, not all evil removed.
You know, that doesn’t happen until Yeshua returns. But, in our, before, He returns, there is a period of time, even though wars are going on, rumors of wars. There’s a time where there’s really a breaking apart of evil demonic systems.
Watch the video, or read the transcription below:
I love the scripture that talks about where He says he will take a, like, an iron rod to the clay pots and that’s, He rules with a rod of iron and the clay pots represent the nation’s evil systems. And He’ll just take that iron rod.
So there will be a breaking apart of a lot of evil systems during this season, as we continue to pray. So, but then He says, “But it won’t yet be the end. It will still be unfolding. Nations will go to war against each other, kingdom against kingdom.”
“There will be terrible earthquakes, seismic events of epic proportion, horrible epidemics and famines in place after place. This is how the first contractions and birth pains of the new age or the new era will begin.”
So we need to take hope during this time we need to realize, okay, there are a lot of terrible things going on. I was just reading, they’re expecting widespread famine now in east Africa, because not only the COVID thing that happened, but there’s been a problem of not enough water in certain areas, not enough rain.
And then, plagues of locusts. And so we’re praying for East Africa that way, for Kenya, for Ethiopia, Eritrea, all of these, we need to be praying for them, but He says, “Things will happen, seismic events, volcanoes, earthquakes of epic proportions.”
I believe we’re gonna see bigger and bigger things happening in that way, if I’m correct in discerning where we are in the times here. So we, He said, “But this is how the first contractions and how the birth pains of the new age begin.”
So when a woman has the contractions, she knows it’s time to focus. It’s time to, okay, lay other things aside.
God Warns Us Ahead of Time
You’re not just your normal life all the time but there’s gonna have to be some real focus during each contraction, but praise God in between the correct contractions, there’s like a breathing time, a little bit of regaining strength. After all these things, of the contractions of the birth pangs, then He tells us you could expect to be persecuted.
I’m so glad the Lord’s honest with us. He doesn’t say, well, you’re going to just have Disneyland your whole life, and there’s never gonna be any persecution or any difficulty because you’re a believer now, but He warns the disciples ahead of time.
You can be, you can expect during this time, and I believe we’re in this time, of the beginning of the first contractions and birth pangs, leading to the new era that will eventually, you know, where He will come, but He says, it’s just the beginning just unfolding.
And He says, “You can expect to be persecuted, even killed, for you will be hated by all the nations because of your love for me.” And once again, that’s because of this polarization, as light gets lighter and dark gets darker, the dark hates the light even more because the light exposes the darkness.
So He said, don’t be surprised during that time, that the darkness will react and will begin to persecute the light. He says that will happen. And, once again, I, when I was on the call with the Iranians and the persecution that they’re going through is so severe.
I asked one of the leaders, “How should we be praying for you in Iran right now?” And He said, “To be honest, we don’t want you to pray that the regime will change right now. It’s not time yet.” He said, “Right now they are being used to unmask the demonic powers behind Islam.”
They are beginning, they are being used to reveal the evil that is behind those demonic powers of Islam. And so people are coming to the Lord in record numbers, the fastest growing church in the whole world is in Iran right now with the greatest persecution.
And so he said, “Don’t pray right now.” He said, “It’s not easy.” I mean, you know, they’re going through a lot. Many of the believers in prison, beaten, all kinds of things happening.
But he said, “Right now, just pray that we will have grace to be strong and to continue to share the gospel of the kingdom of God during this time of great persecution in Iran.”
Great Falling Away
So he says, “Yeshua warns then during this particular time where this happens, He says, ‘Then many will stop following me and fall away.’” That’s what’s really sad.
I believe, you know, these believers who are coming to the Lord in China and Iran are so strong. They are so strong, because they had to count the cost greatly at the very beginning.
But in a lot of Western nations, people just signed a little decision card. I decide to follow Jesus, or whatever. And there wasn’t a deep repentance and a deep change.
And when there’s not, the Lord is allowing these shakings to show that lacking of, of being on the quarter stood, of being on the rock. And so He says, “Some will stop following me and fall away, they will betray one another, hate one another. Many lying prophets will arise, deceiving multitudes and leading them from the path of truth.”
Now, He’s not saying there, that if anybody missed it at a prophecy, they’re a false prophet. A false prophet is one who is continually using the prophetic to lead people away from truth and into untruths, to lead them into bondage, and in the scriptures false prophets often lead people into sexual immorality by their example, and those kinds of things.
So He’s saying there will be those kinds of false prophets deceiving multitudes, leading them away from a path of truth. “There will be such an increase of sin and lawlessness that those whose hearts once burned with passion for God and others will grow cold.”
So He’s saying even some true believers will lose their fire. And that’s why we need the house of prayer. That’s why we need to continually be coming into worship and prayer and filling our lamps with oil so that we can keep the fire.
The fire can only keep going with oil and the oil comes as we worship the Lord. As we look at the Lord, as we gaze upon his beauty as we love him and worship him, we’re not called just to be doing great spiritual warfare all the time.
We are called to do that. We’re not called just to be doing intercession all the time. We are called to do that, but we’re also called to have a lot of just worship, gazing upon Him, looking upon Him, filling our lamps with oil, so that the fire doesn’t grow cold.
Then He says, “To those who do not grow cold, keep your hope to the end, and you will experience life and deliverance.” And when He says life, that should all be in capitals.
You will experience His life, His quality of life. You will experience His quality of deliverance. We will see mighty deliverances. We will see mighty healings.
We will see, at the same time that the evil, the weeds grow to maturity, the true wheat grows to maturity, and the true wheat, the true church, the true believers who keep following and holding onto Him will become more and more full of life, or more full of light, more and more full of the power of the Holy Spirit.
So you have these two things, again, the polarization. The dark becomes darker, but the light becomes lighter. So we shouldn’t be surprised when those who are involved in the world of darkness promote even darker things.
That’s what He said would happen, that the weeds would mature. They’d do even darker and darker things.
And, but at the same time, the true wheat matures and does more and more light things and more and more good things and more and more power things, and more, you know, we will be glorious. He’s gonna come back for a glorious bride, not a beat up, downcast, overcome bride, He’s going to come for an overcoming bride, and we will be an overcoming bride.
We will be glorious. We’ll be shining with His light, shining with His power. In the midst of all this, you have, through it all.
So He’s saying this long process of unfolding, the contractions, the birthing of the final consummation of the kingdom of God, and Yeshua returning.
Proclaiming God to the Nations
“Through it all, this joyful assurance of the realm of heaven’s kingdom will be proclaimed all over the world, providing every nation with a demonstration of the reality of God.” In other words, we won’t just preach and teach. We will demonstrate the reality of God to the nations. We will demonstrate it.
“And after this, then the end of the age will arrive.” So He doesn’t say how long, but He indicates that even some of these huge things happening, worldwide seismic events and epidemics and wars and tremendous shakings and persecutions and all that, He said, “All of those are just a beginning of unfolding. But during that time, if you hold on to me you will experience life.
You will experience deliverance. You will experience, not only experience, but you will demonstrate God’s kingdom realm in such a way that the gospel’s not just preached with words but with power.
Young Raised Up
So we’re coming into a time, and I believe we’re gonna see young people raised up in this house. I believe we’re gonna see young people raised up all over this land who are gonna demonstrate the reality of the kingdom of God with signs and wonders and miracles.
Hopefully some of us older ones will too, but I really believe in a special way it’s gonna come upon the children and the youth. And some of them are gonna surprise us and suddenly become very fiery, powerful preachers of the kingdom of God with signs and wonders following demonstrations to the reality of God.

So now I want to go back to the first vision where shakings are releasing water into the driest places. So as we hold on, the water comes forth in these driest places like Iran, like Saudi Arabia, but also like Israel.
And this is what He’s been making, so strong and so real to me in this season is Isaiah 60, starting at verse one. The first say 14 or 15 verses of Isaiah 60.
It says in the context this is addressed to Jerusalem. If you look at it, he’s not speaking to the church. He’s not speaking even to all of Israel he’s speaking first and foremost to Jerusalem.
Word Goes Forth From Jerusalem
And then from there to Israel, from there to the nations, from there, it will affect the church but He says the light starts to rise upon Jerusalem. He said, arise and shine for your light has come. The glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Now, when can we expect it? He tells us, behold darkness shall cover the earth and deep darkness over the peoples. So in a time of thick deep darkness over nations, he says my lights get to start rising, brighter and brighter in Jerusalem.
And through that in Israel. And then I believe in the Isaiah 19 region, and then to the nations. It’s clear that this is not after Yeshua has come back because you don’t have nations in thick darkness after Yeshua has come back and is reigning.
So during a time of thick darkness, over nations and over the earth, the light begins to rise in Jerusalem in such a way he says the Lord will arise over you.
Light Shines Over Nations Before He Returns
His glory will be seen upon you somehow in this season before He returns. I believe with all my heart. This is talking about a season before He returns that the glory and the light of God will be seen upon Jerusalem.
Gentiles shall come to Your light and kings to the brightness of Your rising. Now when he’s saying kings, we would say today presidents, prime ministers, they will come here because so much light and glory of God, will rise upon this city that they will, they will come like those African kings that came and bowed down one night and laid down their crowns here in Succat Hallel.
World’s Leaders Will Come to Jerusalem to Bow to God
We will see literal Kings, they were kings over huge tribal areas in Nigeria, and we will see kings. We will see presidents. We will see prime ministers, bowing down, kneeling to the Lord, worshiping the Lord, God.
So then he says the other thing that you can expect during the season, lift up your eyes all around. Who’s he speaking to again, Jerusalem, Israel and see they all gathered together.
They come to you who your sons shall come from afar. Your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant.
Your heart will swell with joy because of the abundance of the sea will be turned to you. And the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.
So the other thing that we can see during this season of shakings of darkness coming forth so much on the earth light begins to rise upon Jerusalem.
Sons and Daughters Return
And then apart Israel, I believe upon this region many this region, and then in the nations, but he says there’ll be a big Aliyah, your sons and daughters will be coming home. And there is going to be a great new wave of all Aliyah coming from the West.
And these are key Scriptures. I’d encourage you to take a picture of this with your phone, even to take these scriptures and proclaim the scriptures in this time, we need to proclaim the scriptures because these I believe are not just the word of God. I believe they’re part of the word of God for this season for this time, for this moment.
And there will be a great Aliyah off from the West, from Europe and from North and South America, Isaiah chapter 60 verses eight and nine, a little further at Isaiah six. He says, who are these that fly like a cloud?
Now that’s like a picture of El Al Airlines in the set who are these flying along clouds, bringing again the children back like doves to their roosts. Surely the coast land shall wait for me coastlines means to the, you know far away places of the earth, the ships of Tarshish will come first to bring your sons from afar.
Their silver and their gold with them to the name of the Lord, your God and to the holy one of Israel, because He has glorified you. Now, Tarshish was on the west coast of Spain. We went, he did a prayer prophetic prayer.
First Aliyah from Tarshish
Actually, there are many many years ago about the ships of Tarshish Aliyah. It, there were huge numbers of Jewish people who were Jews or Portuguese that went to North and South America. Many of them on ships that could be called ships of Tarshish. They left from the west coast of Spain.
So he’s saying here, there will be a big Aliyah from those who left from Tarshish, from the Spanish Jews the Portuguese Jews, the Brazilians Jews. There there’ll be a big Aliyah of these people but he says this time, a lot of them will hear the Lord and not lose all their silver and gold.
Like many of the German Jews did like many of the Eastern European Jews did. I believe some may, but he seems to me to be saying here He will move by His Holy Spirit in through prayer in such a way that a lot of the Jews who come from Europe, North, and South America during this Aliyah from the West will actually hear the Lord and come before the Antisemitism gets bad enough that they lose all their silver and gold.
We are to pray and believe for many, for huge percentage to hear the Lord before they lose everything to not wait until they’ve lost everything, not wait until their God forbid, concentration camps or whatever before they come. But that they will hear the voice of the Lord that they will come with their silver and with their gold. Hosea 11 verses 10 and 11, they will follow the Lord.
Big Worldwide Aliyah Coming
He will roar like a lion. When He roars his children will come trembling from the West. Okay, The big Aliyah off of the West, they will come trembling like birds from Egypt, like doves from Syria.
And then he says, I will settle them in their homes declares the Lord. And obviously that’s part of what we’ve got by the battles that we’re praying here are just see people settled in their homes. It’s a battle that now why, because we’re at the early stages of this.
And Satan knows that the more that begin to break through from the West, the harder and harder it’s going to be for him to stop Aliyah. So we need to believe the Lord for those who come to be able to be settled, rooted, not driven away by the hardships, not driven away by whatever, or worse yet, kept away by the minister of interior.
But that the doors will be prepared that the country will be prepared to receive them and to welcome them. The government will be prepared to receive and to welcome them.
I will settle them in their homes, declares the Lord. In other words, not going to be a big Aliyah, And two, three years later, 90% of them have gone back because they’re fed up with how difficult it is here.
They Will Be Planted in the Land
He said I gotta do something so that they can feel settled and welcomed and you know, planted in the land. And another scripture says I will plant them with my whole heart.
Zephaniah chapter three, verses 19 and 20. At that time, I will deal with all who oppressed you. I will rescue the lame. I will gather the exiles. I will give them praise and honor in every land where they have suffered shame.
At that time I will gather you at that time I will bring you home, but I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the Earth. When I restore your fortunes before your very eyes says the Lord.
So in other words, this somehow has to be different than the Aliyah that came out of the Holocaust. This particular Aliyah, I do not believe will be primarily driven even by Antisemitism.
Driven by Prayer
I believe it will be primarily driven by intercessory prayer that causes Jewish people in the West to hear the word of the Lord and not wait for the hunters, but to come at the time of the fishermen and God will raise up the Gentile churches fishermen to encourage them, to supply for them to bless them, to protect them, to help them come home.
And that God will even give them honor praise among a lot of the nations where where they were were seeds of small beginnings of that. But there’s some things happening in certain Central American and South American countries that are just amazing right now in in terms of this where God is beginning give honor and praise to, the Jewish people.
And yet they’re beginning to hear also that they need to come home. And so I believe somehow there’s going to be it doesn’t mean there won’t be a season of hunters and some Antisemitism at the end, whenever but I believe first God’s going to give a big trumpet call and I believe we’re called to pray for them to hear the call and not until they lose everything to come home but to come home with their silver and their gold.
Watch the video, or read the transcription below:
Great Aliyah from the West
Now, Isaiah 60, I’m getting near the end now. In Isaiah 60 he also speaks about the Arabian Peninsula.
So at the same time that thick darkness is going on in the nations at the same time that His light begins to rise in Jerusalem at the same time that a great Aliyah begins to arise from the West.
He says this, Isaiah 60 verses six and seven “Herds of camels will cover your land. Young camels of Midian Ephah, all from Sheba from Sheva will come bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord. All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to the rams of Nebaioth will serve you. They will be accepted as offerings on my altar and I will adorn My glorious temple.”
Now to put this in more modern language camels basically represented commerce. That was the main thing of trade and business and commerce across the Arabian Peninsula. They would bring goods from China, from Indonesia, from India, from East Africa, but they would come up to the Arabian Peninsula and be brought on camels and all these places, Midian, Eva, Sheva, Kadar, Nebaioth are all part of what was considered the Arabian Peninsula at the time that Isaiah wrote this.
So I believe there’s not just an Isaiah 19 highway because if you look at Isaiah 19 the Assyrian empire did not cover the Arabian Peninsula. And so that speaks of most of the middle Eastern Isaiah 19, but I believe there’s an Isaiah 60 highway and the Isaiah 60 highway now will be the Arabian Peninsula coming awake, alive, spiritually and coming back to Jerusalem.
So first commerce begins to happen. Herds of camels, the rams and flocks are for worship. So they bring offerings that facilitate worship in Jerusalem, in Israel. And he says, even from Sheba which was most believers is Saudi Arabia.
Believers Come From Saudi Arabia
So Saudi Arabia, they will come bearing gold incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord. So in other words, there will be people who become believers in Saudi Arabia, who will come to Jerusalem to bring offerings, to facilitate worship in Jerusalem and to praise God and to worship and praise that we’re going to see them coming here in Succat Hallel.
I believe we’re going to see people from the Emirates. We are going to see Arabians. We’re going to see Omanis. We’re going to, I believe we’re going to see people from these nations that are going to travel the Isaiah 60 highway and worship the Lord in Jerusalem.
Now, this is a vision I received May, 2018. I saw angels being sent from the throne, and they were laying highways of light that were aligning many nations with the Lamb and His throne.
From a higher view it looked like a satellite map. You know those satellite maps you see at night and you can see the highways, the lights the cities, and countries that have a lot of electricity.
You see on the, so these highways of light came through “David’s Harp Bridge” at the entrance to Jerusalem. And these new highways were like a new web. They were replacing in the vision.
It had shown God removing a lot of evil systems dark spider webs in nations. And then He, He said in certain nations they will be replaced by a new web that are lines of blessing.
I saw and I wrote this down. This is, you know, verified on the website and everything back in 2018 that I saw highways of light develop from toward Jerusalem, toward Israel from Egypt, from Saudi Arabia, from United Arab Emirates from Kuwait, and from Bahrain.
Now 2020, September 15th the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain already signed the “Abraham Accords Peace Agreement” with Israel. Now I know some people see this all as this is all unholy alliances and Israel shouldn’t be making alliances with Muslims and all of this, but I believe God is in this basically.
I just need you to say that clearly, I believe there it could be used for evil. We need to pray that the powers behind Islam do not use these things to bring unholiness into these alignments, but there is a holy part to this alignment.
There are going to be a lot of Egyptians, Saudi Arabians, Emirates, Kuwaitis, Bahrainis who are going to come to the Lord who are going to bring offerings to Jerusalem. Going to come to praise and worship the Lord in Jerusalem.
I saw highways of light developing with those nations back in 2018, two years before, way before they were talking about possible normalized relations between places like United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. I just saw they celebrated or celebrate is not the right word, commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day, openly and publicly in Bahrain.
This is crazy. If you look where Bahrain was at two years ago and now the Jewish community, there could freely commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day with an online event involving Baharaini officials, people.
I mean, the whole thing is just, God is doing some new things, and we need to perceive the new things He’s doing. This is not all bad. This is primarily good.
These Accords that are happening, God is opening up highways and already we can fly to Dubai on an Israeli passport, which we talked about the staff this last week. Someone like Sheila, that only has an Israeli passport can now go with us to Dubai.
So we’re believing Lord, He’s going to open up something in Dubai that we’ll go and do. And then they’ll come here. And that will, we’ll see a lot of people coming from there to worship the Lord in Jerusalem.
So we’re at a new day and God is doing new things and we need to perceive and understand those new things, and not put an old understanding on those things. Yes, there could be the unholy alliances. I pray often against unholy alliances here, but I believe these Abraham Accords are not primarily unholy.
I believe they are an alliance of the Lord that is fulfilling the word of God in Isaiah 60 and other scriptures. And then, you know, we need to pray that any unholy things that try to come along these highways are stopped from coming, but what God wants to do of revealing the God of Israel, these nations will happen. Then I want to end with this again.
The last vision was the little loaves and fishes. Every time the shaking would call them down we would say, Lord here’s my little basket of loaves and fishes, and He’d give back a bigger basket of miracles and healings and people coming to the Lord.
Then there’d be another shaking. And then, but it would call them down. We’d give back that medium-sized basket to become larger and larger each in between each shaking the baskets got larger and larger of healings and miracles of signs and wonders of people coming to the Lord.
He, I believe with all my heart that we’re going to we’re going to see this again. It seemed like it was a process. It wasn’t just from here to there, but it was a process. With each shaking it grew larger and larger.
So Father, we pray that we will have eyes to see what You’re doing. You said in speaking about the rivers of the desert do you not have eyes to perceive it? Do you not see I’m doing a new thing? Let us see the new things that you are doing. We thank you.
I believe if I’m understanding Your word correctly I believe we are at the beginning of light, rising upon Jerusalem. We will soon see light overcoming darkness. We will soon see righteousness overcoming wickedness, seeking justice, overcoming injustice, truth overcoming lies. We will see more and more light begin to come forth in this land.
So Lord forgive us when we had operated in unbelief, Lord You are greater than that. You are able to shift. You are able to change things that we don’t know how You’ll do it, but I believe You said it was during a time of thick darkness going out over the nations, that you would rise with your light and your glory upon Jerusalem. Then those nations would come here to receive light.
So we declare today. We believe that Jerusalem will become a center of the light of God, of the power of God work of the presence of God in such a way that even kings and prime ministers and presidents will come to see what You’re doing in Jerusalem to be touched by You in Jerusalem. To receive wisdom from You in Jerusalem.
We just thank You, Lord, that though the darkness is thick and strong, your light cannot be put out and your light overcomes the darkness. Thank You that Your light finally will fully overcome the darkness.
We thank You Lord, that in this process somehow light is coming forth in some of the darker places, water is coming forth. It’s from the driest places.
So we believe You, Lord, for light care we believe you for light in places like United Arab Emirates, like Bahrain, like Saudi Arabia, like Egypt. We believe You Lord, for light to increase.
We believe You for water in the deserts. We believe You for more and more believers.
We thank You, Lord that in the midst of a time of great persecution in certain many nations Your Kingdom cannot be stopped by that. It just spreads it even faster somehow.
We bless the believers in Iran. We bless the believers in China who are standing so strong in the midst of incredible persecution. We pray we will be strengthened Lord before greater persecution arises in other nations.
May we be strengthened so that we don’t fall away during a time of persecution, but we stand strong during a time of persecution. We shine with Your light in the midst of the persecution, in the midst of the shakings, and the midst of the polarization of darkness and light that we may fully be children of light.
With Your light filling our lives, filling our homes, filling everywhere we go. May we carry the realm of Heaven with us. May light enter into places when we enter in. May truths enter in. May life enter in.
Lord we thank You that You are going to have a glorious bride in this land who will show forth Your light, Your love, Your power, and Your truth in such a way that we will demonstrate the reality of the Kingdom of God.
So we say, Lord, Yours is the Kingdom. Yours is the power. Yours is the glory, but let us demonstrate Your Kingdom. Let us demonstrate Your power. Let us demonstrate Your glory. In the name of Yeshua. Amen.
