A Word for 2008 - Part Two
This month, we bring Part Two of a prophetic
message for 2008 written in early October. Part One was in last month's
Israel – It’s All About Jerusalem!
It’s all about Jerusalem! For years, we have been saying that
increasingly the world’s focus will be on the Middle East, specifically
Israel and, even more specifically, Jerusalem. Finally, the fate of the
world will be decided by what happens to the status of a small piece of
real estate in the heart of Jerusalem – the Temple Mount.
Pressure will continue from governments around the world, spearheaded by
the United States, to divide the city so the Palestinians can establish
the capitol of a future state in the sector of the city that Israel
captured from Jordan in the 1967 war in the Mideast.
Pressure from within and without Israel to court appeasement will
backfire on those applying it in 2008. This will result in the removal
of the present leader of Israel and we will see Benjamin Netanyahu rise to be Israel’s Prime Minister a second time.
Ancient territorial spirits, such as the Prince of Persia (modern day
Iran), will continue to push an age-old agenda, namely to destroy God’s
chosen people. These spirits have new names, such as anti-Semitism, but
the agenda is the same as it was in Daniel and Esther’s day – destroy
* Pray that
America’s leaders will not pursue the division of God’s boundaries
Israel and the Church – The One New Man
Around 500 BC, the Jews returned to Jerusalem from exile in Babylon, but
they had problems. The Lord gave Zechariah visions to help the people
overcome these problems. Among them was the vision of the lampstand and
the two olive trees.
“Then I asked the
angel, ‘What about the olive trees on each side of the lampstand? What
do they represent? And what is the meaning of the two branches from
which golden olive oil flows through the two gold pipes?’ ‘Don’t you
know?’ he asked. ‘No sir, I don’t,’ was my answer. Then he told me,
‘These branches are the two chosen leaders (anointed ones) who stand
beside the Lord of all the earth’” (Zech. 4:11-14).
The vision primarily refers to Joshua, the high priest, and Zerubbabel,
the civic leader. The golden lampstand is a reference to Jerusalem.
However, prophecy is seldom wasted on one incident in time. The
understanding of who the two olive trees represented in a broader
prophetic sense was hidden from the Old Testament prophets; it was a
mystery yet to unfold.
After rejecting Christ, Israel lost its Promised Land again and was
scattered over many nations. Even though Israel has been returning to
the land that God gave it since 1948, it is still groping for its
1 Corinthians 15:46 says, "However, the spiritual is not first, but the
natural; then the spiritual." What is taking place in the natural is a
forerunner and prophecy of what is about to take place in the spiritual
The Church has failed in that most of its history is filled with
division and church splits, resulting in thousands of denominations.
But, just like Israel in the natural, the Church is returning to its
purpose, which is linked to the hidden mystery of Zechariah’s vision.
God has chosen two instruments to bring about the redemption of the
world! They are the Church and Israel! They are the two olive trees!
However, we are not about to enter a time when we return to the Jews
being central to God’s plan, but rather, an unprecedented time of Jew
and Gentile being joined together in purpose.
In 2008, we will witness a major shift – the Jews, the natural seed of
Abraham, and the Church, the spiritual seed of Abraham, becoming the
"one new man" Paul wrote about in Ephesians 2:14-16.
* Pray that
God will hasten the advance of this next phase of His Kingdom.
The Wheat and the Tares – Harvest Now!
In Matthew 13:24-30, the kingdom of heaven is composed of wheat and
tares that don’t distinguish themselves until harvest time.
The Kingdom of God must be distinguished from the ‘kingdom of heaven.’
The latter refers to anything that calls itself ‘Christian,’ true or
false; the former refers to God’s true Kingdom, composed and held
together by the Spirit of Truth. It has nothing to do with religious
institutions and organizations, but is a living organism that grows from
generation to generation.
The earth is now ripe for harvest! "…Harvest earth’s vineyard. The
grapes are bursting with ripeness" (Rev. 14:18).
During 2008, we will see a clear separation between the true and false
Church. In the United States, denominational acceptance of active
homosexuality among clergy will be the dividing line. This is part of
the preparation for bringing in the greatest harvest of all time.
* Pray that
the Lord will release an army of laborers into the harvest during 2008.
Look for the Signs
God will continue to speak through the mouths of the prophets, but
in 2008, more and more He will leave His marks, warnings and signs that
will only be discernable to those with spiritual ears to hear (Rev. 2:7, "He who
has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.").
The amazing parallel between Israel and the Minnesota bridge collapse is
one example of what is to come (for details, go to
The End of the Matter
My verse for the coming year is Isaiah 60:2, "For behold, the darkness
shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will
arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you."
It speaks of a time when the world system is descending, but God’s
Kingdom is on the rise! This will typify 2008 more than anything else.
Make sure you are part of the King’s dominion, "...for His dominion is
an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to
generation" (Daniel 4:34).
New England Aflame Annual Conference
Brings Great Hope to the Northeast -
Christian Fellowship, a key church for the New England region based
in New Haven, Connecticut, has been hosting the annual New England
Aflame Conference for many years, and this was my second time as a
speaker. Other guests included well known prophets, Patricia King
and Denny Cramer, worship minister, Jason Upton, the
Mike Smith Band, Melva Beacham, Mickey Robinson and host pastor,
My wife, Melva, led a session that brought an update on the
latest events concerning Israel from a stateside perspective and also
from her recent visit to the 'Land.' Most of the attendees responded to
her personal ministry, while I took advantage of a drummer missing from
the worship team during the ministry time and sat in with the band and
enjoyed playing out that meeting.
Dennis Cramer singled out my wife and me for specific prophecy
that lasted about 10 minutes, and without having met us before,
virtually chronicled both our histories and confirmed just about
everything the Lord has been speaking to us about the future.
night meetings were mostly to a capacity crowd, with worship that was
excellent and prophetic declarations concerning New England that were a
great encouragement to all concerning the perception of the hard
spiritual ground in this region.
Patricia King's passion for the next generation was evident, and
she outlined some cutting edge strategies that her ministry is
pioneering in an effort to reach this generation that, to a large
degree, is missing from the American church.
I spoke on the war that is going on right now over who will be worshiped
and also that there is a monumental clash looming between the true
Kingdom of God and the false version. It is a time of harvest, and the
tares will be clearly distinguishable from the wheat!

MESSAGES AVAILABLE THROUGH FMI...
Thy Kingdom Come
It is God’s will that His Kingdom would be recognized “…on earth as
it is in Heaven.” Every demonic influence that delays the advance of
the Kingdom on earth will be confronted by the power and authority
of heaven, and this authority has been invested in the Church!
Learn how God is working for victory right now!
The Mystery of the Middle East -
Then and Now!
The Middle East has always been a dangerous
place, and even more so today! If cease-fires actually promoted
peace, the Middle East would be the most peaceful place on earth, instead of the most violent.
Learn the truth about an ancient agenda
and what God is about to do in the world.
Multiplication in Our Generation
Pursuit of our own spiritual growth at the expense of evangelism
brings glory only to us, when much fruit of souls brings glory to
the Father, and all our prayers are answered!
Passing the Baton
of the world's 6.5 billion inhabitants are under 20 years old.... A
global youth culture is forming, and Christians must learn to adjust
to it. Some are already claiming that the church must be completely
re-invented. The newly-forming youth culture depends less on
scientific and rational thought and tends more toward seeking to
experience spiritual things personally. Those seeking spiritual
experience will be disappointed by a church offering only
information about God.
