Two Articles: Wizard of Oz & Don't think we're in Kansas Anymore  --T


WIZARD OF OZ
 

David Weber

 26th May 2007

 

I used to occasionally post writings on a prophetic (charismatic) web-site, though I haven't posted there for a very long time now. This morning I did feel led to go there though, as I felt there was a word there for me to read.

 

The following caught my eye (my spirit really), mostly because on the last trip to NY I kept joking with Tim (the disciple who went with me -- a country boy) by saying, "You're not in Kansas anymore Toto."

 

There was also a night when Tim and I were walking through Harlem, a night when we had a homeless and drunk man named Jose' with us and another man who was also homeless and a crack addict with us -- when I thought to myself, "I feel like Dorothy who is off to see the Wizard with her motley crew!" (LOL)

 

Anyway, this Wizard of Oz analogy seems to have come from the Lord. Get what you can here by the Spirit. My spirit particularly bears witness to the parts that describe great calamity and disasters being made manifest in the earth at the same time the glory of the Lord is to be revealed in a people. My spirit also bears a strong witness to the verse, “I have come not to bring peace, but a sword ..."

 

That sword is the prophetic word that comes out from the mouths of the Lord's prophets, beloved. Be careful not to blaspheme the Spirit when the Lord gets in your face and speaks to you plainly about things that you just don't want to hear.

 

These are incredible times in which we live, and some of God's children are now being raised up to be used as a two-edged sword dripping with Holy Ghost anointing. This sword will come to you in the prophetic voice; that which is needed to perform the vital surgery necessary to raise you from your critical condition, stricken by the cancer of carnality, complacency and just plain worldliness. If you will humbly yield yourself to this surgical work of the Spirit, when the sword is withdrawn, the healing salve of the Holy Spirit will be left behind to lovingly heal the wounds from the radical, yet life-giving operation. If you continually fight against the work ... well, all that I can say to that is, "Many are called few are chosen. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection."

 

Bless you ... -- D

Don’t Think We’re in Kansas Anymore

Sandra Anderson

May 8, 2007

On Thursday, May 3, I was on my way to a local House of Prayer (Key of David) and ‘out of the blue’(at 4:44 a.m.) I saw the largest falling star that I’ve ever seen—& just before it disappeared, it turned bright green! I reported it when I arrived at KHOP & then proceeded to read the portion of scripture that was assigned to me: I Samuel 14 through II Samuel 5…King David’s coronation, etc. Then, as I arrived at school for the day, I pulled up the following article on the Elijah List: (by Danny Steyne & Bob Jones): “The White Dove is Coming Again--

It’s the Time of the White Dove”…

Here are a couple of excerpts (& imagine my surprise!):

The Green Stone reveals life, an essence of life, and we are ambassadors of life. That’s what I see, Green Fire, Living Fire, Fire that cleanses and brings life, renews, restores, invigorates! LIFE, LIFE, LIFE! Living fire!

Grab the Stones and RUN, RUN, RUN!! Like Aaron with the Censer, standing between the Plague and the People!

Loose the LOVE of GOD! Let it flow, let it flow, FULL-FORCE! Flow, river, flow!!! FLOW FAST! FLOW DEEP! CLEANSE! HEAL! RESTORE! AND BRING GLORY TO THE THRONE…

Then Bob said, “Last night I was in a temple with some saints. There were vacant seats there, and I thought, ‘Wow, where are the people who should be listening?’

As we were sitting there, I saw stones begin to fall. They were falling last night. They were like green fire. I picked one up and gave it to Bonnie to put in her purse. I saw others were getting them. They were called Green Fire. What’s the Green fire? It’s Emerald-inspired teachingfiery teaching with Revelation. It’s teaching with a fire like you have never seen before. It is beginning to bring Truth on a scale like you have never seen before. Even the mysteries of God are being opened…

I heard audibly that these stones will begin to fall again in 2 weeks. Awesome Revelation is coming like the green stones with fire in them. HALLELUJAH!!!

(Full article on the green stones:Click here )

This was amazing to me & I e-mailed several friends in my excitement. God had sent one of the fiery green stones to Ft. Myers, Fl. ( my city) Wow!

Tornado in Kansas

The next day, the F-5 (c. 200 mph+) Tornado struck Greensburg, Kansas at 10:10 a.m., completely obliterating the town of 1500 residents. (#10 symbolizes ‘the perfection of divine order, commencing. as it does, an altogether new series of numbers…because the whole system of numeration consists of so many tens, of which the first is a type of the whole.’—E.W. Bullinger’s Number in Scripture.)

Every structure damaged, every church struck down-- EVERYTHING GONE in a matter of minutes;

95% of the town was wiped out. One lady was in tears as she held up her hand showing her diamond engagement ring that had been found; she commented, ‘Who would think that we would ever have found it in all of this rubble?” Someone in our ministry mentioned that they had seen a report where only a ‘pristine bridal gown & fine china’ remained in the midst of all of the devastation.

Is God speaking? Of course he is and has been—probably forever! However, we are JUST BEGINNING to hear, see, & understand what He is saying. (…Now it is high time to wake out of sleep…Romans 13:11)

Quite a few years back—right after 911, it became apparent to me that the disasters and the glory were going to occur simultaneously (‘behold, both the goodness & the severity of the Lord’ Romans 11:22). And, at that time, Isaiah 61:1-2 was quickened to me:

“Arise, Shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; But I will arise upon thee & my glory will be seen upon thee.”

I would like to testify that HIS GLORY IS BEING SEEN UPON US! In the last couple of years I have enjoyed more favor, received more treasures of revelation, and understood more mysteries than at any other time in my life. I have been totally fulfilled & could die happy right now—(but that’s in His hands).

God has ALWAYS had a remnant, a bride-- those who have been willing to ‘follow Him’ WHEREVER He leads.

So it is today, but there is also an increase & an acceleration in all things spiritual (good and evil) as the end of the age draws near. The manifestation is beginning. Can you see it? Can you hear it? Can you feel it? It’s amazingly true! And here we are-- ‘for such a time as this.’ Bless his holy name.

Anyway, back to Greensburg.

As I’ve been pondering the connection between the occurrence of the falling green fire and the devastation in Kansas, I remembered an article by Bonnie Chavda that I read several years back: It Will be Very Violent Here are some excerpts from that:

“Bonnie Chavda received a vision in which the Lord showed her things concerning imminent visitation in this nation.”

‘In the vision, I was standing on a land map of the USA. The states stretched out from me in front and behind. I was facing west and above me, from horizon to horizon, was a ceiling of very thick, black, angry, clouds. Their appearance was that of an approaching, terrible, storm.

In one place, there was an opening in the clouds. There, rays of very bright sunlight shown through. Seeing this, I understood that a spiritual storm was imminent, and that in the wake of this storm, hope, peace, and joy, would shine from heaven. I heard a voice say, ‘This is the refreshing: IT WILL BE VERY VIOLENT.’

Suddenly, I was standing on the flat wheat fields of the Midwest. In the distance, approaching at tremendous speed, was a terrible cyclone funnel cloud. The earth all around this approaching cyclone was kicked up in a tremendous frenzy. As I watched, a series of scenes from the movie adaptation of the American classic by L. Frank Baum the “Wizard of Oz” passed before me. With each picture, a voice described things that will take place as this coming “wind” moves over the land. I understood that it will not be sinners, false religions, or even political institutions, including the media, that will most vehemently question and oppose the coming “wind”, it will be institutions of Christian tradition and influence, including those who claim the ‘fullness of the Spirit”. I saw the girl Dorothy, in her humility, purity, and faith, as a type of the bride of Christ…As the wind surrounded Dorothy’s whole house…God said, “ Everything that can be shaken will be shaken. Everything in which you have found safety or comfort, but not from Me, will be exposed and uprooted.”

I found myself standing in the swirling house as it was lifted into the cyclone. Looking out, I saw every kind of debris…flying around before my eyes. This “wind” tested the true strength of things formerly trusted in and exposed many things formerly covered…The Lord said, “There will be those who will call this wind “demonic” because of what it will make manifest. Demons will be stirred up, the flesh will be made obvious, things formerly hidden will be exposed and seen as they are in relation to My Spirit: BUT THIS WIND IS FROM ME!”

I realized how human logic and tradition, not being subject to the Spirit, will misread the appearance of what is to come, and will deny that Jesus is driving this wind, But Jesus said, “I have come not to bring peace, but a sword, and again, “Anything spoken against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.”

I trembled at these words, for I had expected that the visitation we had so long sought would come as welcome delight for all. Now I was being warned that it will not be so. But God will refresh and empower everyone who gladly receives Him in fullness…

Then the Lord showed me who will respond as God makes up His army in this hour. On her way to Emerald City to see the great Wizard, Dorothy encounters and is joined by a little band of other unlikely seekers. They are unified, not because they are alike, nor because any one of them is great in themselves, but because they have one common goal, to see the Great Oz. This little army approaches the Emerald City and rings the bell. The high, beautiful fortress illustrates the kingdom of our ‘inheritance with the saints in light’ (Col. 1:12). It is also the place of visitation and revelation (remember “Emerald-inspired teaching” at the beginning of this article?) Hidden in its towers and recesses are all spiritual riches, miracles, and power, for all manner of healing and signs. A little door within the gate slides open and out pops the agitated face of the doorkeeper. “GO AWAY! He croaks at Dorothy’s army and slams the opening. The Lord said, “The spirit of religion will refuse my army and resist their entrance to and possession of the resources of their kingdom.”

Many who have held power in religious settings will be threatened by this army and will resist it. In spite of them, the army will gain entrance to the Kingdom.” 

Bonnie’s article was written in 1995—right before ‘renewal’ swept through the Body of Christ as a definite historical move of God (and was rejected by many in the Christian community). ‘Twas ever thus; “…He that was born after the flesh (Ishmael) persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, (Isaac) especially in the church!

EVEN SO IT IS NOW! (Galatians4:29)—so be forewarned

—Jesus is coming and He will definitely not arrive as we expect! “Things of the Spirit are (only) discerned by the Spirit.” (I Cor. 2:14).

The article’s significance is just as valid NOW as it was then—probably even more so as we all anticipate the much prophesied next mighty move. Watch and be ready (for anything)!

Summary

What is the Lord saying? Here is part of it.

“First the natural; then the spiritual”(I Cor. 15:46).

“And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath…before that great and notable day of the Lord come…”(Acts 2:19)

I believe that recent events have brought us ‘over a threshold’—past a line of demarcation-- into a place that God knows will bring forth the purity of His bride; a place of violence where the Kingdom may be taken by force.

Since the Kingdom is within us, there will be devastation both within and without, but WE WILL TAKE IT! (Ps.108:13) He, in all of his wisdom and glory, is orchestrating the circumstances and the catastrophes to bring forth his Beloved. He is wooing us to himself;

He is calling us home; And—There’s no place like home.

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high, there’s a land that I dreamed of once in a lullaby.

Thy Kingdom come, Lord…
