THE STORY OF GIDEON’S ENDTIME BAND
Many of you are no longer listening to My voice or obeying My instructions to you, either through the written Word or My voice and Spirit speaking to you directly. You have hardened your hearts, and your vision is glazed over as one with cataracts. (Woe #3448)
Prophecy for someone with cataracts: The enemy is a compulsive liar; he is a delinquent. In touching you, he is touching the apple of Mine eye. These cataracts are a test of your faith. Be not weary in well doing, for in due season ye shall reap if you faint not. These cataracts are not a sign that you aren’t seeing– but that you see clearly. They are an attack of the enemy because you see clearly what has happened to My Family and you are willing to make a stand of faith in their stead. All those that have forsaken the Words of David have their champions; it is you My loves. You are listening and obeying and the enemy is raging mad. The darkness is so angry because of your crystal. He hates your crystal, and he hates the crystals that are around you. They too see the light and understand very well what has happened. So fret not for these lying vanities of the wicked one, for his doom is sure and he stands on the very brink of disaster, he and his followers. The war is on, and he will use any foul tactic to bring down those that would steal away souls from his grip.
- OH THE DARKNESS IS SO ANGRY! IT’S FURIOUS! THE DARKNESS IS RAGING BECAUSE IT’S LOSING ITS GRIP ON THESE CRYSTALS OF LIGHT, and it thunders and rages, and it storms. but it can’t put out the Light, because it is afraid of the Light! It can’t put it out, because it can’t even get close to it, because the Light destroys it!
- THE DARKNESS IS ALL AROUND AND SEEMS MUCH LARGER THAN THE LIGHT, AND YET IT CAN’T OVERCOME THE LIGHT!–It can’t put out the Light! It tries to surround the Light and cover it, but it can’t put it out because the Darkness itself is destroyed by the Light! Every time it comes close to the Light, or tries to attack the column or the Crystals, it is destroyed by this terrific Power! (Crystal Pyramid!, The [#0214])
Prophecy: Pray, My beloved Children of David, for it is through the power of your prayers that the crystals trapped within the darkness of Churchianity will be released. The enemy rages and fumes, but he is powerless, he is not able to fight against the power of the Keys-turned-to-swords. He is not able to fight against the prayers of the Warrior Band, his avowed enemy…
(Channel:) Hallelujah! I saw a picture of dry bones in the desert being given life again--people being brought back to life and rising up out of the dust where they had been lying. The Lord was raising up an army from people who had been discouraged and downcast. He was taking the dry bones and restoring flesh to them and causing them to rise up out of their slumber.
(Jesus continues:) I have called forth the armies of David, and I have called you from your defeats into victory. I have raised you up again, you who have been struggling, despondent and discouraged. I have ignited the flame again! How encouraged I am to see you all answer the call of My Spirit in your hearts! I see many rising to fight again, and some who have been called to fight for the first time.
I see young and old rising together to face the light as you begin to march in ranks toward Me. I see you rising up out of your complacency, compromise, disobedience, unyieldedness, jealousy, pride and bitterness. I see you all rising to meet the call of David, the cry of revolution! It’s a Revolution! (Fast-Day Miracles! [#3384])
Prophecy continues: Do you see what I promised? Now those promises are coming to pass. Your prayers are not only raising up those Children of David that have lain sleeping these many years in the deserts of this world, but they are also raising up many within the churches. A mighty awakening is underway, for the Keys have willed it. Your prayers are calling the crystals back to the pillar, back to the Words of David. They are begin wrenched from the dirty one’s claws, and he is furious.
To keep the faith, you must keep all My promises in perspective. They take time to mature; they also take people making the right choices. You were shown the end of these matters –the end from the beginning. It was a great honor to be shown the end result. My Word is full of promises, yet it takes faith to hold on until those promises are fulfilled. This is the test; it has taken many years to reach this point. It has taken a great “holding on”. It has taken great great faith to hold on to the Words of David through the many attacks the enemy has thrown at you, My Children of David.
This day you approach a battle–not a battle of the physical, but a great spiritual battle. For darkness has been released, and you have felt its dark claws on your hearts as it has tried to persuade you that I am not real, or that you should compromise or give in to the Enemy. You have all felt the power of the Devil that has been released. Some have fallen into despondency, thinking there is no hope, but now that I have your yielded hearts I have been able to empower you and cause My power to flow directly into your hearts. (Fast-Day Miracles! [#3384])
The Selvegion are driven back, lethargy melts, Pan and Bacchus cower; they fear and tremble at the might and strength of the prayers of My children! They are singed by the heat of the flame, blinded by the power of the keys, and wounded by the thrust of the sword! These are no match for the fire that ignites My Endtime brides. (Fast-Day Miracles! [#3384])
Prophecy continues: I have often told you that it is not in numbers nor in the strength of “the arm” that victory is won. This is one of the main reasons I have likened My small band of warriors, the Children of David, to a Gideon’s band. What weapons did I give to Gideon and his men before they were sent into battle to meet the Midianite army? A trumpet, a torch, a sword and a pot. You, My dearest Children of David, have all you need to win this battle against the Midianites of the End. You have the Keys-turned-to-swords. You have the Light of Israel. You have Me, your pot of endless supply, and you have been given your commission to announce My return. When you break Me, the Bread of Life, I will be your continual supply throughout the battle ahead. I have not forsaken you, My dearest dears. I am with you as I was with Gideon of old. Fear not the grasshoppers, those Midianites that have spread themselves along the valley floor. For I have chosen the few faithful ones that continue to hold My Words of David in high esteem. I have given into their hands the victory. These ones I call My Gideon’s band of the End. Now, taken from the book of Judges, here is a very general, bird’s-eye view of your history.
Judges 6:1 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. MB: And as many of us know, this was the time of the TFI book burning.
:2 And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds.Hebrews 11:38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. MB: What was the underlying reason for the TFI book burning? It was fear of persecution. The book burning actually was the final solution to a long period of purging. It started many years before, with the pubs being censored in black ink. Here is a quote from the letter The Index…”Those words were blocked out in black ink. When you put all the words in the index that were blocked out together, they told something important about where things were and what was going on.” So you see, that event was prophesied in a dream that David had, and it was the job of the Index to find what those words mean.
:3 And so it was, when Israel had sown, Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. MB: This represents the world-wide evangelization that was accomplished by The Family before the passing of our prophet.
…that the Midianites came up, and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them; :4 And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass. :5 For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land to destroy it. MB: The Family was attacked, it didn’t just collapse. There was plenty of activity going on after the passing of our prophet. But the Midianites attacked, both physically and spiritually…a good letter to read on this thought is the letter “Woe” and the other letters related to it. The fear of system reprisal was real. It had already happened to many in different countries. Wwe know the history. But in censoring the pubs, they weakened the structure. And as was prophesied in Builders Beware, the structure eventually collapsed.
:6 And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the LORD. :7 And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD because of the Midianites, :8 That the LORD sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage; MB: this of course is none other than the famous [ Revolution for Jesus] where Jesus, through the Endtime prophet David/Dad, called for a return to the days of the early church. Again, you know the history. 2Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
:9 And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land; :10 And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.MB: A quick jump to the end –yet throughout the history of the Children of God, there has been revolution after revolution, mainly brought on by disobedience, until finally the last great revolution arrived, The Reboot, which was like the big brother to the RNR. 1Kings 12:16 So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents.
:11 And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the wine-press, to hide it from the Midianites. :12 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valor. :13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.
Prophecy continues: Did My promises to David fail? Did not I promise that My Family would be a great and mighty nation if they held the Words of David for all to see? I said that My children should not hide the Words of David but speak them out, hold them up as a light upon a hill, not put them under a bushel in fear that others might not understand. Did I not promise that the folds of David were a safe fold? Ezekiel 34:13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. :14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. :15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
:14 And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? :15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house. 1Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; :28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
:16 And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man. :17 And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me. :18 Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again. :19 And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it. :20 And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so. :21 Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight. :22 And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O LORD God! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face. :23 And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. :24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. :25 And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father’s young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it: :26 And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down.
Prophecy continues: Question: Is thy father’s second bullock and the seven years significant? What was the second interpretation of Endtime events given by your father David in the “What If” series? Take this bullock and lay it on the altar, for I have accepted it. “DAVID, THE WORLD IS ALREADY WORSHIPPING THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST IN THEIR HOLIEST OF HOLIES! What is the temple today? What does the Lord say the temple is where you’re to worship Him? Not here, nor in Jerusalem, nor in this building or that! What is the holiest of holies of the Temple of God?” ( Your heart!) And people who are worshiping the Devil & his anti-Christ spirit in their holy of holies, in their heart, are already worshiping the Antichrist in the temple that belongs to God, in the temple of God!
To be continued tomorrow
“Sadly, some of you are too far gone, and even a shakeup like this will not be enough to bring you back. Others of you will realize that you have wandered from the straight and narrow, and will do all you can to rectify it, to be washed clean through the Word, and to get your priorities and your standards straight. Those of you who take up the challenge, and who obey, and who immerse yourselves in the Word will be cleansed.”
