Billy Graham Leads Us
Fourth–and most important–please vote your conscience! We at Lamplighter Ministries encourage you to follow Billy Graham’s advice, articulated in full page ads in national newspapers: “On Nov. 6, the day before my 94th birthday, our nation will hold one of the most critical elections in my lifetime. We are at a crossroads and there are profound moral issues at stake. I strongly urge you to vote for candidates who support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman, protect the sanctity of life and defend our religious freedoms. The Bible speaks clearly on these crucial issues. Please join me in praying for America, that we will turn our hearts back toward God.”

Chuck Pierce–New Birth in this Nation
Chuck Pierce just sent an email on “Praying for New Birth in this Nation.” Amen! We will cover this theme more below, with a key word Davids Tent leaders have been praying into since before we began.

Chuck shares a declaration for today. Let there be light! I agree. Lord, enforce Your divorcement of Baal, and resetting of covenant with Jesus Christ. Restrain the enemy–here in DC and across the land. Break through deception. Let there be light!

Lord, turn our hearts back to you. Bring into leadership the Eliakims that You have ordained as mothers and fathers to this land. According to Your covenant, grant us today a New Birth of Freedom, In Jesus’ Name!

Who Would Divide This Baby?
Sunday’s posting was so important of this time. I still cannot get away from two Spirit-breathed phrases. First, “Marriage is between a Bridegroom and a Bride.” So simple and clear, so deep and profound.

The second is a question: “Who would divide this baby?” This issue is most vital, because God truly is granting a new birth of freedom. Which leaders would lay down their lives for this child of America? Which ones would rather divide the baby to retain their place of authority?

May God judge in favor of the true parents now, across the spectrum, so this new birth might be preserved.

The Glory Train and the Egg?
I feel a release to finally share with you a prophetic word that Davids Tent leaders have been standing on since before Davids Tent began. And it’s all about this “new birth of freedom.” As each of you pray for Davids Tent, or worship at Davids Tent, you are contending as well for the manifestation of this promise.

The Ellipse is oval, shaped like an egg. In September 2009, prophet Bob Jones was told that an egg with “new life” would hatch in 2012. This was part of a move of the restoration of God’s glory, which Bob saw as a “glory train!”

It is interesting that, in early September 2012, Jolene and I moved to an apartment in DC–literally across from Union Station. Why? The train of His glory is coming in!

Oval Altar for the Oval Office
Also in early September 2012, Jason Hershey visited an African American pastor. This pastor had no idea about Davids Tent or its location, but he had just had a dream. He saw an oval altar, with the nations streaming to it.

At this time, God spoke to Jason, “An Oval Altar for the Oval Office.” The Lord showed Jason that the call of Davids Tent was above politics. Instead, like a mother hen brooding over her egg, God wanted Davids Tent to “brood over” His promise of new life with devotional worship that simply builds a Throne for His presence.

Bridal Canopy: The Egg of Promise has Hatched
Then the Lord will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all, THE GLORY will be a (BRIDAL) CANOPY–Isaiah 4:5.

I felt that this promise we’ve been brooding over began to be released as of November 1. On October 31, the Tabernacle of David was literally restored before our eyes, the tent recanvassed after Hurricane Sandy. At the same time, the Tabernacle was restored across the nation as we joined together for the Tent the Nation Initiative.

As many of you witnessed on our phone call, that evening was when I began to feel a sense of completion.

On November 1, Dutch Sheets brought an additional weight of confirmation. Sixteen years ago, Cindy shared a warning about an X over our nation. She and Dutch prayed, and Dutch saw this X transform into a Bridal Canopy. Cindy was with us at the beginning of Davids Tent, sharing her vision and sharing about the Bridal Canopy initiative. Dutch, who completed this vision, joined us November 1, and shared how worship was the key to breakthrough in this season!

We are now in the final 24 hours of Davids Tent. This egg of promise has most definitely hatched. The glory of the Lord is NOW being restored as a BRIDAL CANOPY across the land. He is tabernacling with us!

And God’s “New Birth of Freedom” is here. The encounter by Bob Jones is below. Covenant blessings to each of you this historic day, in Jesus’ Name. And remember–the Bridal Canopy prevails!


The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the Lord of hosts–Haggai 2:9.

This is the year the glory returns to the church. Forty-two years ago Bob was told that God was removing His glory from the church and writing Ichabod over it. Ichabod clearly means “the glory has departed.” (I Sam.4:21) Bob inquired of the Lord why He was removing it. The Lord said that man had marketed it for self gain. Man touched God’s glory and He will not share it with anyone! The Lord said that Bob would live to see the returning glory and from that time Bob has believed it would take place in 2012.

The Glory Train 
In September, 2009, (in a trance) Bob was aboard a train with many other shepherds. Each one had a special seat assigned by the Holy Spirit. Bob asked the Conductor “what is this train?” The Conductor told Bob it was the glory train and handed him a time capsule that was shaped like an egg. The egg had new life in it! It contained the beginning and end of time. Bob asked the Conductor “when can I open this egg and when will this train arrive?” The Conductor said the time was within the egg and the egg will be opened in 2012.

Peace and Prosperity
December 29, 2011 Bob was given Haggai 2:9 and told that peace and prosperity would be given to the believers in the church. To those who know their God they will know God’s peace and prosperity during a time of judgment. It will be the best of times for those who know God and the worst of times for those who don’t.

Glory brings Separation
To what extent the glory will come we don’t know but Bob has believed for 42 years that it will begin this year. The glory will bring a great separation between sheep and goats. God will separate the sheep from the goats single handedly. There’s a separating of the sheep and goats this day among the nations. The sheep you will see graze nicely upon God’s lofty hills and become wealthy and wise while the goats fall by the wayside. The goats will continue to be unclean while the sheep draw nearer to God. We are called to walk with God and be His sheep herders.

God’s Glory Arises
In this day of much devastation you will see God’s glory extended to the believer. The day of God’s glory is coming as the smoke from the rubble clears and we will see God’s glory arise from the ashes of the heap. His glory will be displayed as the saints go forth in love, joy and truth. They will display God’s love and extend healing to the weak and faint of heart. No longer will man doubt God’s love nor His power.

The believer will rest in the peace of God and prosper in the fullness of His abiding glory as the glory returns to His church. AMEN!
