The following is a compilation of several prophetic voices spoken recently (in addition to our own). We hope they will help you to discern these times to know what to do (I Chron. 12:32). We pray they provide wisdom, combined with understanding, as you choose this day whom you will serve (Proverbs 4:7; Joshua 24:15).
He had a vision of an airplane full of passengers caught in a powerful storm. Thunder, lightning, and turbulence toss it up and down. The pilot battles intensely to keep it from crashing while the fuel is running out. The storm is the corona virus epidemic. The pilot is President Trump. The plane is the United States and the passengers are its citizens. The fuel is the economy. The pilot communicates the emergency need to land before the fuel runs out. The tower/control says, “No! You can’t land now”. The tower is the medical and governmental advisors. The pilot responds, “If we don’t land now we will crash”. This is our present situation.
As a result of this present storm we will undergo a series of storms in the next year. Each will be a fierce contending: More of this virus (viruses); the economy; employment; the election.
We are on a parallel with Joshua crossing over into the Promised Land: Joshua 3:11-17. The priests (Body of Christ and its leaders) must step out onto the flooding river in order for the raging river (epidemic, etc.) to part (give way). We must lead the way for the benefit of “Adam” (vs. 16). In particular, ministers (“priests”) must set the example/demonstrate faith to overcome raging flood waters (vs. 3:15)—i.e. death.
This crossing over is connected to this year’s Passover and overcoming plague. As we do so, the process will next bring us to circumcision (Joshua 5:1-12). We must, each one, cut away what God identifies through the crossing over. Following circumcision will come rest and healing (vs. 8-9) along with Passover (vs. 10). Then will come conquest (Joshua 6). Note that manna ceases after Passover. We go from maintaining (being provided for) to conquering (after learning the principles of resting in the Lord). See verses 5:13-15. We must learn the truth of Psalm 23:2.
Bob Jones prophesied decades ago that the decade of the 2020’s would be an entering into rest and a harvest (that would continue until 2050).
A key to overcoming future plagues is intercession. See Numbers 16:41-50. Christian leaders must appeal for the atonement of the people’s sin, standing in their midst, offering up prayer (like the priests with the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan during the crossing over).
We are becoming watchmen who have the confidence (trust) of the King. To fully become one, we must follow the process of humility to faithfulness to obedience to watchmen in authority (confidence of the King).
Watchmen will partner with gatekeepers (those who control access) to guard treasure within. That treasure is Kingdom rule and reign. Watchmen will be trusted “cupbearers” for the King.
“The hour is coming and now is . . .” (John 4:23). Acts 2:16, “This is that . . .” We are now entering the hour chosen for us. It is the hour of the fullness of Acts 1-3. Peter declared it in Acts 3:6. The “Gate Beautiful” is the revealing of the message of the Kingdom in power. As watchmen bearing the King’s cup, in His confidence, we have walked through that gate into the hour of restoring His Kingdom on earth. In Acts 1:6, the disciples asked, “Will you at this time restore . . .?” In Acts 2:16, Peter declared “This is that”. Now is the hour for “That’s” fullest demonstration as the church becomes His Kingdom watchmen—cupbearers.
Safe Harbor/Tim and Beth Scott
This present crisis/epidemic is a satanic backlash/counter-attack against God’s full Kingdom advancement in this season. The dragon (Satan) wants to “devour the baby” (God’s Kingdom plan). See: Rev. 12:4, 15. Goliath wants to terrify us and cause fear and panic with his roar. The roar of the Lion of Judah through us will cause his defeat. The Lord of Hosts will empower our sling to bring him down; I Sam. 17:45-50.
The real issue of these days is, “Who is the true King? Who will we serve? Who will we fear?” Corona in Latin means “crown”. This epidemic is a sign of the contending in the earth over who wears the ultimate crown. See: I Tim. 6:15-16; Rev. 17:14. That one is Jesus and in time every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He alone is King of all Kings and Lord over all. His Kingdom is advancing today, more than ever, against violent resistance. That resistance is increasing yearly but so is our determination to advance and establish His Kingdom rule. See: Romans 14:11; Phil. 2:9-11. These are remarkable times where we will see an increasing manifestation of the blessings of the New Covenant (Heb. 8:6; 12:24). We will progressively see the realization of our part in the maturing and perfecting of the Body of Christ (Heb. 11:40; Eph. 2:14-16, 4:13-15).
In the midst of this crisis, God’s Word—His sword of truth—is exposing and revealing hidden things (Hebrews 4:12-13). Surrounding president Trump, as he seeks to lead with wisdom, are:
- Devouring wolves (Hamans; Esther 7:3-6) using him, and the law, against our citizens, especially Christians.
- Sly, cunning dogs (Pharisees; Matt. 23:23-24) trapping him to discredit him.
- Fawning Jackals (money-changers; Matt. 21:12) deceitfully profiting from him.
- Scavenging Hyenas (Jezebel; Rev. 1:20-23; 17:6) feeding on death and destruction.
Regarding plagues and pestilence, the United States has loosed among itself the fruit of misplaced tolerance; in particular the tolerance of Jezebel. Revelation 2:20-23 conveys the principle that tolerance of Jezebel results in sickness and death. We, as a country, have tolerated generations of Jezebels at a national level. The consequences have compounded exponentially. For an in-depth examination of this, see Jonathan Cahn’s books, The Paradigm and The Oracle.
The facts are indisputable. The results will be increasing waves of various sicknesses unless we repent and quit our tolerance of the likes of Clinton, Pelosi, Obama; and now Cortez, Oman, etc. (Jezebel and her children). In reality, it is doubtful this will stop as a country. So what can we do to protect ourselves? The Lord has directed us to, first, Psalm 91 and second, A Four-fold Covering. We need to pray and confess continually the provisions of Psalm 91 and stand in faith on its promises. Additionally, Holy Spirit directed us to pray a four-fold covering over all connected to us. This corresponds to the four-layered covering over the Tabernacle. Pray as follows for:
(outermost to innermost)
- A Whirling Wall of Fire Porpoise skins
- Blood of Jesus Red ram skins
- Hedge of Thorns Goat hair curtains
- Angels Linen embroidered with cherubim
The wall of fire repels, conceals, and guards.
The blood of Jesus appropriates His finished work.
The hedge shields us from the devourer and natural predators and circumstances.
Angels guard, guide, minister to, and assist.
Concurrently, with these tools, let us add a caution. Avoid engaging in sensation or conspiracy speculations. Rather, seek to develop spiritual maturity leading to heightened spiritual gifting; particularly discernment and the revelatory gifts. This will help you to discern truth and adhere to the admonition of Ephesians 4:13-14, “Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a mature man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”.
Regarding the achieving and appropriation of rest in this season, study Hebrews 4:1-13. Verse 12-13 speaks of the circumcision that precedes rest. Verses 1-2 emphasize the need to act with faith in order to obtain true “rest”. This is the present internal state of the believer, who has, by faith, fully surrendered to the Lordship of Christ and rests within the complete control of the Holy Spirit. This is true rest as opposed to simply being confined to quarters (house arrest) or sheltered in place. Without His blood on the doorposts of one’s heart and home, no natural barrier can fully protect. With the blood applied, in faith, no evil can overcome your household (Ps. 91:9-10). One who is truly at rest in the Lord can “sleep” in Him through any storm that arises. See: Mark 4:37-40.
There are two upcoming occasions that provide an opportunity to appeal to heaven and activate our faith for breakthrough. The first is Pesach Sheni (Second Passover, Friday, May 8). This occurs annually as a time for those failing/unable to participate in Passover to have a second opportunity to do so. It is primarily, like traditional Passover, a time to believe for and celebrate deliverance from plagues/bondage.
Next, on Tuesday, May 12, will be Lag B’Omer, the 33rd day of Omer counting. It is a celebration in the midst of 49 days of counting the Omer, leading up to Shavuot/Pentecost. It reflects on the miraculous lifting of a plague in 2 A.D. It is a pause to thank God for His protection and presence in the midst of disasters/earthly woes.
Both occasions are times now to ask God to act to lift this epidemic and release healing—to allow us to return to normalcy and productivity.
Let Psalm 63:1-8 be a confession for you in these days until breakthrough comes (particularly verse 7). To you all we say:
“Strengthen the weak hands, make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, ‘Be strong, do not fear!’ Behold your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you.”
