Daniel 5 is the prophet’s account of the night that Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians. These events also set the pattern for a future event, the fall of Mystery Babylon, as described in Revelation 17 and 18. Since we are now living in the time of this latter-day event, it will be of great help to us if we understand the original pattern that was set in the days of the prophet Daniel.
Such understanding will also help to remove our fear of present circumstances, especially when Mystery Babylon seems to b…

For the past few years we have taught about the two-part ministry of Christ depicted in Moses/Joshua and in Elijah/Elisha.
Our revelation began in earnest in late 2008 and early 2009 in the aftermath of the Elijah revelation that we received at our Tabernacles conference in Hilo, Hawaii in September of 2007.
The foundational revelation was about the birth of “Elijah” (that is, the Elijah ministry). Further revelation showed that it was more than Elijah; it was really Elisha. And yet the revelation inc…

In Micah 6:16 the prophet laments over Israel because the “the statutes of Omri” had replaced the law of God. King Omri was one of Israel’s most powerful monarchs in Israel’s history. The prophet comments on this in terms of the law of gleanings in Micah 7:1 and 2,
1 Woe is me! For I am like the fruit pickers and the grape gatherers [olelah, “gleaners”]. There is not a cluster of grapes to eat, or a first-ripe fig which I crave. 2 The godly person has perished from the land, and…

The Year of the Open Door began on Rosh Hoshana, September 5, 2013. But as most of you know, there is also a Prophetic Year which starts soon after the Feast of Tabernacles, usually in the first half of November.
This prophetic year reaches its culmination at the Feast of Tabernacles and has to do with what God is doing and revealing from year to year. Each Prophetic Year begins with two periods of cleansing (76 x 2 days), followed by the sequence of feast days from Passover to Tabernacles.
The Prophetic Year 2…

On November 6, Darla and I went on a mission trip to the Philippines. The revelation was incredible.
The revelation continues to unfold daily in regard to the importance of the Philippines in the divine plan and its relationship to the “kings of the east” (Rev. 16:12), whom God has raised up to overthrow Mystery Babylon.
Momentous events are about to occur on many levels, and some of the most important events, both economic and spiritual, are centered in the Philippines. Today’s “Cyrus, Hi…

Luke is the 42nd book of the Bible. Israel had 41 camps under Moses prior to crossing the Jordan, and the 42nd camp was in the plains of Jericho under Joshua, a type of Christ. Luke, then, gives us the prophetic fulfillment, likening John the Baptist to Moses and Jesus to Joshua.
Luke 1:5 says,
5 In the days of Herod [“The Great”], king of Judea, there was a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah; and he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
The story …

In Daniel 7 the prophet had a long-term revelation of the time of tribulation for both Israel and Judah. As you may recall, Daniel was part of the captivity of Judah and was a trusted official in the Babylonian government. Jeremiah had already prophesied that the Babylonian captivity would last 70 years (Jer. 25:11). Daniel’s revelation put this into context, showing that Babylon was only the first of four major empires that would rule Jerusalem in succession.
The Four Empires
Daniel saw these empir…

My friend Philip, who lives in Mankato, Minnesota, shared recent revelations from the intercessory group where he fellowships. I immediately recognized the value of this revelation, and that is what I want to share with you.
The Father is calling for a 40-day time of intercession beginning August 6 and ending on the Day of Atonement, September 14, 2013.
Forty Days of Repentance
The Jews call this forty-day period Teshuah, or “repent.” It was the theme of John the Baptist’s message leading to …

Moses gave Israel two covenants within the broader context of the Old Covenant. These two covenants represent the Old and New Covenant.
The Exodus Covenant
The first was the Exodus covenant, a conditional covenant given in Exodus 19:5-8, where the people took an oath of obedience in order to obtain God’s blessings:
5 Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is mine… 8 And all the people answered to…

Adam was the first king of the world.
The Dominion Mandate was given in Genesis 1:26-28 when God created man (Heb., awdawm) in His image and delegated authority by the decree, “Let them rule” (vs. 26). He also said to them in verse 28 to “subdue” the earth.
No further explanation or instructions about HOW to subdue the earth are given, because man was created in the image of God, and they knew instinctively what to do. The proper way to rule was inherent in them. However, when Adam sinned,…

The only way to know how the book of Revelation has been fulfilled is to study history. For this reason we have taken the time to document the events of history that are relevant to that which the Bible foretells. I apologize in advance if some of this history is too detailed to hold your interest.
The main thing is that you know that the “little book” that was opened in Rev. 10 depicts the opening of the Bible to the common people. It prophesied of the time when the Bible would be printed in the commo…

Kingdom authority began in Genesis 1:26 when God told man to rule the earth that God had created. That mandate, along with the fruitfulness mandate in verse 28, were the two elements of the Birthright that were passed down from generation to generation until it rested upon Jesus Christ.
Only one man received the Birthright at a time, each in his generation. For this reason, Ishmael contended with Isaac for the Birthright, and in the next generation Esau contended with Jacob. They could not both be inheritors.
