THANK YOU WATCHMEN for standing on the wall! As Winston Churchill commented, “never was so much owed by so many to so few.” America has no idea of its debt of gratitude to each of you.
PLEASE KEEP VIGILANT through July 4! I look forward to joining you tonight as we seek God’s continued protection of our nation.
American Pharaoh and the Triple Crown
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”—President Obama, Oct. 30, 2008.
“All of this means that by July 4 this year, America as we know it may literally no longer exist”—our posting from July 18.
Part of the prophetic ministry is foretelling—releasing God’s preparatory message to equip God’s people for what’s ahead. And part of it is forthtelling, fulfilling Heaven’s mandate of speaking truth to power.
Occasionally a message is both—as with “American Pharaoh” and the Triple Crown.
Further, we often don’t fully understand a foretelling message until we look back. So Lamplighter family, lets review a few key prophetic demarcations through the years.
Between Moses and Pharaoh
When President Obama was first elected, I had a dream. Two brown horses were galloping in an open field on White House grounds. Meanwhile, two gray horses were being escorted out. I was witnessing a transfer of power, Bush to Obama, and I saw how both presidential legacies would be remembered as forerunning new realities that defined America’s future.
Shortly before President Obama’s first inauguration, the Holy Spirit shared His heart in a way that compelled us to constantly pray for him ever since. He impressed to me how our 44th President stood between Moses and Pharaoh—hesitating between two opinions—and that he will choose one legacy or the other.
We have prayed seven years straightt for Obama to choose Moses.
Pharaoh’s legacy is best defined by defying God. He ruled Egypt as a dictator. He established his throne by covenant with the principalities of Egypt, especially Isis and Osiris. Unions through which he purportedly became a “god” himself, and ruled as a god. Further, he subjugated the Jews, denying God’s chosen people the right to worship Him.
Moses, on the other hand, spoke God’s truth to power—and started a revolution.
As late as this past summer, the Lord reiterated this perception and called us to prayer. In a vision I looked towards the White House and saw the President wearing the mantle of Pharaoh, stretching forth his rod in extreme pride, defiance and anger against the Lord. Immediately following, I saw the President on his knees in the Oval Office. Pride was gone, and he was weeping and crying out to the Lord.
We continued contending.
On June 6, 2015, American Pharaoh won the Triple Crown. It was the anniversaries of both D-Day and the restoration of Jerusalem under Israeli rule. The day Bob Jones prophesied to us about, the very day we launched our Crown & Throne schools.
The world cheered while I wept. With American Pharaoh’s Triple Crown, could this be an indicator that the choice was made?
Just as the first interpretations of history are often skewed, I am very aware of the need for initial prophetic perceptions to be weighed in the balance. Further, historic decisions have been made all along the way by many “American Pharaohs,” Republicans and Democrats alike. Defying the balance of power, the will of the people. Changing times, seasons, and laws.
We continue to pray that President Obama choose Moses over Pharaoh. And that his legacy will ultimately reflect this choice.
VA Beach—Two Prophetic Dreams
Much like Ezekiel was called to the plain, last week Jolene and I felt summoned to Virginia Beach as an emphasized location for God to speak to us. There a simple cross bears witness to the covenant of our founders with the Lord, consecrating a new nation in freedom.
We stayed at the Founders Inn. And our first morning, Jolene and I were both given significant dreams—a very unusual occurrence. The dreams are complementary, and they give great clarity to the challenges we now face in DC and the nation.
In Jolene’s dream, a supernatural force had an underground throne somehow connected to Washington DC. Meanwhile, I awoke seeing three pillars. I “knew” these three pillars formed the foundational infrastructure of global governance. And they also represented American Pharaoh’s Triple Crown.
Triple Crown—Three Pillars of Global Governance
The dreams came Tuesday morning. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we were stunned as e saw the “Triple Crown” literally played out before our eyes in Washington DC. With decisions that granted three consecutive victories to President Obama—the Trade Bill, Affordable Care, and Gay Marriage.
For context, lets review.
- Trade Deals—establishing transnational governmental infrastructure overseeing economic transactions, with authority that supersedes the sovereignty of each nation aligned.
- National Health Care—with government-funded abortion, national and international access to personal profiles and health data.
- Redefining Marriage—shifting marriage and morality from a biblical foundation. Just as importantly—perhaps more—legally restricting the First Amendment right to exercise religion, the freedom to worship God in spirit and in truth.
In my prophetic experience I “saw” the three decisions of this Triple Crown as three pillars upon which the infrastructure of global governance is now being established. This is again admittedly subjective.
We the People… Usurped?
It’s important to again note that each mandate reflects the President’s values, not necessarily the moral convictions of “we the people.” Each policy actually has a common reputation—of being imposed upon the American people by force, rather than being chosen by the majority of the American people.
In the end, we may truly find these three policies of President Obama represent the wisest course for America and the globe. We may not. I by no means question President Obama’s heart towards those who have traditionally been disenfranchised. But I do fear the forceful methods of securing the above policies has set a precedent for future leaders to follow.
Even the appearance usurping the balance of Constitutional power is a danger to our democratic process. So is any appearance of usurping freedoms secured by the Constitution, such as the right to free exercise of religion. It’s important to note that, in the recent gay marriage decision every Supreme Court justice warned of these very aspects in their dissent. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia even referenced them as the reason America fought the revolution.
“Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court,” wrote Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent to the gay marriage ruling. “This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”
Freedom to Worship
Note that restricting freedom to worship God is Satan’s ultimate goal—as prophesied in Revelation 13, and demonstrated from cover to cover in the Bible. Not coincidentally, freedom to worship God authentically is actually God’s ultimate goal for all mankind.
It is the driving passion behind the global governance of Christ’s kingdom, which upholds human worth in the highest sense and therefore diametrically opposes the subjugation of the enemy. It’s the driving passion that motivated God and Moses to engage in a revolution against the gods of Egypt and government of Egypt. Let My people go, that they may worship Me!
Further, it’s what compelled my own Pilgrim forefathers to abandon their European dictatorships and birth our nation by covenant with God. So they could live out their beliefs authentically.
And its why America’s revolutionaries raced into battle with the cry “No Sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus!” Spiritual revolutionaries are now doing the same. As this Fourth of July approaches, this spiritual Paul Revere has but one aspiration resounding through my spirit for our land. Retaining what my own forefathers lived for, and gave his life for in America—freedom to worship.
NO SOVEREIGN BUT GOD, AND NO KING BUT JESUS.
