To truly see an appropriate vision of God’s prophetic word and its effect upon the world around us, you must be willing to have a childlike view. Jesus said that God has hid things from the wise and prudent and revealed them “unto babes”. I interpret this to mean that those who are skeptical and cautious will have a hard time seeing the real truths that lay within prophetic words. That’s because prophetic words are actually given for the purpose of blocking wise and intelligently reasoned minds from seeing the simple truths that are revealed.
Religious leaders in the time of Jesus could never see Jesus as the Christ. They stumbled aimlessly over every revelation of His glory. So it is with you and me. If we continue to look at prophetic words with critical and cautious minds, we will miss the beauty and glory that God desires to show us through simple, yet obvious, truths. They may be hid from those who are overly critical, but such is the wisdom of God. The writer of Proverbs said, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but it is the honor of kings to search a matter out.”
This week I saw three distinct prophetic signs that seem to give an explanation as to how God is dealing with America and other nations. Paul told the church at Corinth that “first comes that which is natural, then that which is spiritual”. The spiritual doesn’t happen first, the natural does. This is the key that will unlock the doors of many inexplicable situations happening in the world. Then we’ll be able to understand what God is showing us even before the event occurs.
As I mentioned in past blogs, God has told many of us to stand back from the judgment that He’s about to deliver in the earth. We are not to take part in the verbal warfare that is going on in America. This includes the subject of politics, religion, and all forms of diversity. That is because God has definitely declared to us that He is coming with a hand of judgment upon our nation and He wants us to stay out of His business.
We should just be focused on two things: birthing and possessing. Just as a pregnant woman doesn’t get involved with the affairs of war, so we shouldn’t be involved in any kinds of conflict. The Lord has us birthing something extremely wonderful, so the only suffering we should go through is only whatever’s involved with the birthing process.
There were three clear signs that happened this week regarding God’s sovereign action of cleaning evil out of our nation. On Monday it was reported that numerous rock python snakes, which had mysteriously infested the Florida everglades, had suddenly come out of their hiding places. And many of them had been infected with viruses that were brought to Southern Florida by the severe winter frost that struck the state early that year. State agencies immediately began specially training hunters to find and clear out the rock pythons, which had no indigenous predators and had been freely preying upon Florida’s natural wildlife population (and now were endangering humans). But the Lord had an unusually severe cold suddenly hit Florida and it ended up wiping out the encroaching deadly snakes.
The snake has always been a biblical sign of satanic presence. I believe the pythons were a sign to America that God Himself, and not hunters trained by man, is going to stop the satanic influence upon our nation. Remember, first comes that which is natural followed by the spiritual fulfillment. The pythons are a physical sign telling us that God is going to remove all of the “snakes” that have tried to infect us ~ from the movie industry to political systems (and even local churches that aren’t yet free from religious spirits). Let me also mention that this purification process is coming to our own houses. But don’t worry, it’s a good thing. I mean, nobody wants to live in a house with snakes, right?
Then Tuesday, another prophetic sign hit our nation. The mighty Mississippi River began flooding so extensively that it was making history. Another shocking part of the news was how many water moccasins (also known as cottonmouth snakes) were being flushed out of their natural habitat and becoming a dangerous threat to much of the population of the flooded states. Once again God is giving us a sign that He is removing poisonous influences from this country. This is another prophetic action where we can see (by the size and immensity of the natural flooding event) that there’s no way it could’ve been orchestrated or controlled by man. God is showing us, through prophetic examples in the natural realm, what He is about to do in the spiritual realm of this country.
This truth can even be observed on a television show, like American Idol, which has found itself stuck with some young entertainers who just can’t seem to get Jesus off their minds. One young female country singer (who is obviously a Christian) was asked by a famous entertainer, and a record company CEO, to sing a song that has in it the words: “I’m evil.” The young girl, immediately appalled after she was told to sing those words, rejected them and said, “I am not evil!” This turned into an argument until the innocent girl was finally persuaded to sing the words.
The producers of American Idol afterwards complimented her and tried to make her feel that she’d done a good thing by repeatedly calling herself evil. Then, amazingly, one of the judges on the show, Steven, cut through all the shenanigans and agreed that she wasn’t evil. His statement suddenly exposed the “snake” that has been subtly trying to influence the show. I feel God is going to complete His work with American Idol and the venomous influences of the snake will be completely cut off by Him. We don’t have to petition the show or fight back in any way, because the battle belongs to the Lord.
Then, on Tuesday afternoon, a wild mountain lion was found running through the streets of El Paso, Texas. The 125-pound female lion was finally shot dead by officers sworn to protect and serve that southwestern community. The reason I felt the event was significant is because an hour or so after the lion was killed the President of the United States spoke in person to the citizens of El Paso. This is another physical prophetic sign to our nation that satan, the lion that has been roaring about this nation seeking whom he may devour, is going to be killed in the public’s eye. Only this time it will be by the angels of God, who have dedicated their lives to protecting and serving the people of God. God wants to assure us that He’s going to take care of the devil’s influence throughout our nation.
I’m aware that many of you are called to spiritual warfare and I encourage you to continue fulfilling your task. David was destined to be a man of war, but his son, Solomon, was ordained to build the temple of God and was a man of peace. Each of us has the privilege of carrying out the mission God has sent us on. I’m writing this blog to those who are called on missions of peace ~ to establish, possess and see the fulfillment of God’s promises to the Church in America and in the earth. May each of us complete the tasks that God has set before us ~ and be more acutely sensitive to the physical and spiritual signs that God is daily setting before us.
