This is one more reason I left the modern day church.
We just keep falling into man-made ways, rather than depending upon the Wind. I’ve tried to be “diplomatic” long enough. I just don’t care anymore. People today have to be hit over the head with a 2×4 or they don’t hear a thing! Motorboats are roaring so loudly no one hears the voice of the sailboat! Row boats are paddling in such a frenzy they know nothing of the peace and ways of a sail boat!
The way I see it, “POLITICS” can be worked two ways. One: Do the work of a Priest. You affect the hearts and minds of people with the message of Christ by living as the Priests we are called to be. And then those people go and vote in a godly way and the country is blessed by God!
TWO: The church becomes political. We are desperate to the point of hanging our hopes on a carnal man. We try to FORCE people to live godly through politics rather than a heart transplant by the power of God. We use law. We go backwards to the laws of Moses rather than the Spirit of Christ.
Now I ask you, which did Jesus do? I also ask you, which is the church doing?
The church has been functioning as the picture above for too long! Even the horse can’t believe his eyes! He stares at us in disbelief! We’ve lost all spiritual horse sense! And we need to repent of it and get our minds renewed back into the ways of God!
I believe the vision I had shows that our politics, and Trump, are about to backfire on the church! Big time! You cannot force righteousness. It’s always had to be a desire of the heart! If God’s earthly Priests affect the world for enough people to have that changed heart, then good leaders will be elected. But if the church lives as kings rather than Priests, guess what? You become political. You try to force righteousness. Your ways begin to feel like a dictatorship. And all hell is gonna break loose! Why???
Because for one thing, since we have not been the priesthood, light has greatly decreased, the standard has fallen, darkness has greatly INCREASED, and we will be out voted! Whether this election or the next, it really will not matter, Donald Trump unintentionally has made the church the target! The world not only wants to get Trump out of that office, but they want to make sure no one like him can ever get there again! The church is about to become Public Enemy number One! You say we have already been that? No we have not! But I fear you will soon learn the difference! (And I think it’s too late to change course. We need to get back to being the Priesthood, but the world is not going to forget what we have already done.)
The disciples were always trying to get Jesus to go political, remember? How do we forget? How do we not learn? Jesus always redirected their attention back to the Kingdom of God! He never went political! And when the church finally did, with Constantine, we ended up in the dark ages! Why is this so hard for modern Christians to see? And yet I know I’m a very small minority and the church will consider me insane, stupid, blind, or a traitor. But there comes a time when you give up caring, because you’ve spoken these things in a nice way till you’re blue in the face and it got you nowhere! Again, what did Jesus do? I follow Him. Show me otherwise.
Even just before Jesus is about to leave, the disciples are still wanting to go political, but our Lord’s answer still has not changed. He is trying to tell them spiritual things, things of the Kingdom of God, but they still have a kingdom of man mindset. >
“And being assembled together with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, which, He said, you have heard from me, for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now. Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
Even as he is leaving! And how did he answer? He basically said don’t worry about that and took them right back to a focus on the Kingdom of God! He spoke of power in the Holy Spirit and being witnesses! Be the Priesthood! This is all in Acts 1:4-8. This is what Jesus did. We ask what would Jesus do? This is what he did, and so did the early church he started. But we are not the early church anymore, are we? Oh to God that we were! It can be frustrating being a sailboat in a world of motorboats and row boats. Row row row your boat stressfully down the stream!
So… the two gates I have given much detail about in previous articles. I now believe those two gates represent the connection between Trump and the church. They also represent a church gone political, as in the days of Constantine. When I showed up in the wind storm, I found my 87 year old dad out there, hanging on for dear life, and trying to tie the gates shut and blockade them with cement blocks! The wind had already blown the gates open several times. The latch which normally was good enough, simply couldn’t withstand this kind of FORCE. So my dad, a picture of the “old guard”, the traditional status quo church was out there trying to prop it all up! More programs! More man-made devices!
When I showed up the answer seemed obvious to me. I couldn’t believe he was even out there trying to do it. But the gates were acting as a net. As the old, dry, lifeless, unanointed corn shucks were getting caught and pinned against the gates, as the gates were filling with this dry lifeless stuff(!)… they were becoming solid, the wind was no longer passing through and the pressure was building like clogged arteries! But when I showed up, driving a truck with Ram’s horns (Shofar) on the hood, and being someone who has left the old wine skin, I broke the connection of the two gates and opened it up! Now the wind blew through and a sign of the old wine skin rupturing! But all those in the secret place, which are some of the words I painted on the teepee, will be marked by God. I’m not saying it will be a comfort zone. The teepee is not yet very comfortable, but do we want comfort, or POWER? And I’m not talking political power, I’m talking God’s POWER!
Usually we meet God in the “discomfort zone”. In the denying of the flesh we find the Spirit. Those who will walk on water, then, are in the discomfort zone seeking God NOW! And likely has already been for some time, but it’s not too late!
I have one more thing to share at this time concerning these two gates. The day God showed me the church and Trump, it just happened I was going to the farm later that day. When I showed up a turtle dove was perched on the left gate! Now lest some of you are thinking this is a sign that God is on the side of the party of abortion, let me correct that quickly. What God was showing me is the dove was indicating which gate was the church. It sat right there looking at me as if to say, “Have you got it yet?” And then peacefully flew off. Therefore, the gate on the right had to be Trump. Why is this interesting? (And this had never happened with any bird before! None!)
The gate on the left is old, worn, and weak; but the gate on the right is actually attached to a 4×4 post which is rotting at the bottom! The bottom of that post is greatly damaged and weakened! It is the weakest of all! My dad even put a small wheel under that section of gate to help support it! Interesting, huh. And our modern church is irrevocably attached to this man. Am I saying we should never have voted for him? NO! We can cast our votes without making a big political issue out of it, and the other choice was Hillary! She is rotten completely through! But…
If we had been a proper Priesthood all these years, it never would have come to this. The fact we had little choice is because we have failed so miserably to be the salt and the light of Christ, and become lovers of this present age. Priests are called to discomfort zones. We perform sacrifices that help people. We are called to a life of sacrifice, not kingship. Salt gives its life away as it performs its action against decay. A candle slowly gives its life as it lights a room. Scripture is very plain on this matter, and also the life of Christ himself. We are called to discomfort zones, but the ZEAL that burns within us for the Kingdom of God, so overrides any price we pay, that it is counted as all joy to us! It’s a supernatural paradox that only happens when you’re truly in the POWER of God! It is a work of the Holy Spirit, completely supernatural! And how do you get more of the Holy Spirit? Usually in the discomfort zone.
Church…you got the cart before the horse. Some of us are realizing the truth of this and are repenting and changing. I was in some fasting and praying before Passover. I was in some fasting and praying again at Pentecost. And now I’m getting ready for a return to the teepee for three days, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, this next weekend. I will be fasting, praying, studying, and listening. I have not had a time of spiritual separation unto God in that teepee since those ten days back in October and November of 2018. I plan to take my laptop and do some blogging while I’m there. I plan to share some thoughts as I am in that separated time, whatever God will allow me. I hope you stay tuned. Maybe even tell some friends.
There is much yet to tell on this living vision I had. We have mostly spoken of the gates so far. In view of recent events, I felt it critical to share my thoughts on these gates as quickly as possible. Be spiritually prepaying yourself. Joshua faced Canaanites, Jebusites, and all kinds of “ites” in his day. But we are facing Clintonites, Obamaites, Bidenites, and etc. You get the picture. Even Joshua suffered defeat when there was sin in the camp. And I know we are not perfect, but people, we’ve drifted so far from the original pattern of the church, and what is still written in our New Testament Bible, that we have fallen into much idolatry! It’s not about being perfect! But like in the days of Gideon, there are idols to fall! Gideon will be one of our next topics of the vision, the warrior in the night sky! Stay tuned!
