"THEREFORE WITH JOY SHALL YE DRAW WATER OUT OF THE WELLS OF SALVATION" Isaiah 12:3 [note: Jeremiah 2:13]

FEBRUARY 17, 1988

A GREAT MYSTERY: CHRIST AND THE CHURCH" Ephesians 5:32 The dictionary definition of "Mystery" is this ..."A religious truth that man can know by revelation alone and cannot fully understand." By the Living Spirit of God thru Christ Jesus we can "KNOW" this "Mystery" -- but to understanc it, is another matter. Our understanding is 'partial' and faulted. When we speak of 'Understanding" we speak of what is 'Carnal'-'Fleshy". Men attempt to fashior hard and fast rules of what God does and does not do by what they "Understand" of Gods Word. The trouble with such understanding's is that such carnal mindedness is opposed to God -as stated in Romans 8:4 to 9. Note Romans 8:5 "For the y that are AFTER THE FLESH D0 "MIND" THE THINGS OF THE FLESH; but they that are AFTER THE SPIRIT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT." Notice especially the choice of terms-'MIND" is related directly to FLESH-CARNAL-that which is NOT pleasing to God. While the term "AFTER" as in AFTER THE SPIRIT implies a flowing, yieldedness, movement by the Spirit of God apart from, detached from 'MIND', and MIND is also UNDERSTANDING. So its clearly seen that the MYSTERIES OF GOD can be KNOWN as we are led by the Spirit of God, drawn by His Love, filled with Jesus Christ Love. But also its seen that we cannot Understand the mysteries of God with the MIND, for this is Carnal, its Flesh and is not pleasing to God. The Apostle Paul in Ephesians 5 appeared to lay down a clear set of rules in the husband and wife relationship. The Church system of man today observes those rules but they miss what Paul said at last -- "THIS IS A GREAT MYSTERY; BUT I SPEAK CONCERNING CHRIST AND THE CHURCH." So when Paul said in Ephesians 5:21 "Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God" Paul spoke of CHRIST AND THE CHURCH. When Paul said, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.'(Eph 5:22) Paul spoke of CHRIST AND THE CHURCH. Why did Paul use 'husband-wife relationship' as an analogy of CHRIST AND THE CHURCH ? In I Corinthians 3:3 we see the reason and answer "For ye are yet CARNAL: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife and divisions, are ye not carnal and walk as men?" The Christian of today is no less carnal than the Christians Paul wrote to 2,000 years ago. Whats the point? JESUS has shown us clearly that He uses the NET OF PRAYER as a representativE group that in fact reflect, represent THE CHURCH and its condition. More, we reflect in

A GREAT MYSTERY. .CHRIST AND THE CHURCH ( contd) ourselves, in our attitudes, responses or lack of them the level of RELATIONSHIP between CHRIST and THE CHURCH. The Lord God has elected to REVEAL to us something vital and i mportant to KNOW --if we will OVERCOME in CHRIST. And if we will OVERCOME by FAITH in CHRIST we need KNOW what to overcome, and 'how to overcome'. Since 1974 JESUS has led me time and time again to seek "DECISIONS" from groups of Christians over the years --each time the issue was the same. JESUS said this --what would they decide? Since 1974 the Lord Jesus has revealed the condition of HIS CHURCH, HIS BODY thru selected groups of Christians(whom He selected). In all these years I've KNOWN His Will in a matter but did not KNOW His Purposes at work by such decisions asked of His Church. Then when I came to KNOW His Purposes at work, and this was that we were called to OVERCOME, I did not KNOW how to OVERCOME. For years I have placed my FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS, Loved men but learned not to Trust them, but to Love them as Jesus does. I drew back from placing my trust in men, lest I find myself 'leaning on the arm of flesh' and not God. But in the last few years I have come to KNOW something new --to place my Faith in Christ IN HIS CHURCH, HIS BODY, HIS PEOPLE--in YOU JESUS for years told me of Nancy-TONI, the one He would bring into my life - in whom I would see HIM, as she would see HIM in me. JESUS told me He would teach me something by this, something to apply to His whole CHURCH. This past January 1988 we saw, KNEW to apply this to all of you - having our Faith in Christ in YOU, and KNOWING He would speak by each of you. He has, and where we saw only 48 respond in the first decision time(Dec-Jan 87/88) --now in a like time period, we would see 141 respond to JESUS call to decide "YES ' .

THE DECISION by FEBRUARY 2, 1988 When we mailed the newsletter out on January 19th asking a 'decision - we had in view Gods requirement of $3,000 for the TRIP and by this sum, then the promise that He would MULTIPLY THAT SEED Money to meet the actual need for a new car and the East Coast Prophetic Mission. What we did not know then, was that another part of Gods requirement was that at least ONE HUNDRED(100) be in ONE ACCORD plus $3,000 by February 2, 1988 --the deadline for that decision. By February 2, 1988 we had 53,120 and 108 in ONE ACCORD --but still the promise of multplication evaded us. Why? We came to KNOW and understand also that the Lord extended a SECOND CHANCE TO DECIDE on the basis of the 48 who did respond saying YES in the first decision time that ended January 5, 1988. Thus we now KNEW that since these 48 were FOUNDATIONAL to a SECOND OPPORTUNITY TO DECIDE, then all 48 of these were required to RE-AFFIRM their first decision. Thus tho we had the required 53,000 and 100+ in ONE ACCORD by February 2, 1988 --1, just one of the 48 Affirmers had not responded by Feb 2nd. As a result of lacking just 'one affirmer' of the 48, the promise of multiplication would be missed. Working round the clock from January 19th and on, praying, discerning, and plotting prime days for the promised lottery numbers, I perceived two opportunities would come --the first in the period of January 27 to February 2, 1988 which I dubbed the AFFIRM TIME. The lottery in WASHINGTON STATE reflected and proved the discernment.... NUMBERS:

THE DECISION OF FEBRUARY 2, 1988 (contd) The promised number #122 expected January 27th we call a LEAD IN NUMBER, it signals that the promised number sequence is started - we know to look for this number and cover it in advance. What came was #022 not #122 ---the number #0 we have learned means "ABSENCE', thus it was not difficult to realize that the ABSENCE of 3 AFFIRMERS(on Jan 27th) re-affirming their Dec-Jan 87/88 Decision resulted in 'prevented blessings'. By 'prevented blessings' I mean, blessings were there, lacking the ONE ACCORD, Satan could and did prevent receipt of Gods blessings. As you look at the numbers drawn Jan 27 to Feb 2nd, you will realize that ONE NUMBER was missing out of the promised numbers. Why? Just a few Christians delayed in responding thats all it took. In the ILLINOIS LOTTERY on the day we expected to see a #185, instead the lottery drew #666. That alone told us the Beast of antiChrist was coming thru. The #185 has a meaning, it means "JESUS INTERVENES" --when you see #666 show in its place, it means ANTICHRIST GIVEN OPPORTUNITY FEBRUARY 3, 1988 MEETING Having what God required ($3,000 and 100 Christians in ONE ACCORD), but aware that some of the foundational AFFIRMERS had not responded(the 48) - we understood the trouble. We three got together(myself, Nancy-TONI and Judy-PAULINE) and prayed to OVERCOME by Jesus Love, praying in the ONE ACCORD we did have. At that point 3 of the 48 AFFIRMERS were ABSENT, had not re-affirmed. By February 9, 1988 --the 48th affirmer responded. In the week of February 8 to 13th, we were clearly helped by the Lord and collected in the lottery, gaining back all the loss's suffered in the January 27-Feb 2nd period. But we did not see funds multiplied by MERCY NUMBERS, instead JUDGMENT NUMBERS appeared--revealing coming EARTHQUAKES, NUCLEAR DISASTER, BEAST OF ANTICHRIST RISING TO POWER. Right behind the lottery earthquake numbers, Quakes struck up and down the West Coast from Mexico to Alaska, then in New Hampshire(2.7 Richter quake Feb 9th). EAST COAST TRIP --DELAYED--CANCELLED??? Working with Jesus Word concerning the promised Intervention numbers (#122, #183, #185, #218) I figured that at the latest the #185 number would have to show by February 16th Tuesday i f we were to go on the Prophetic Mission East at all. Thus February 16th became a focus day --it would turn for MERCY or head deep into JUDGMENT in evident ways this day. JESUS back in January made it clear that it was a SOW AND REAP Situation --and He specifically spoke of a WEEK WITH HOLDING MERCY. Thus the date of the 48th affirmation came into view -February 9th --plus one week would cover thru to Feb 16th or Feb 17th Tuesday or Wednesday. In simple terms, I would expect to see evidence of the Beast making major moves in this time up until Feb 17th latest --after which Jesus Help would begin to emerge to turn it around. FEBRUARY 16, 1988 - DISASTER DAY This day Steve-JOEL was laid off his job, the Washington lottery drew #518, and at precisely the same time the broken version of #185 showed, my brother Bruce was killed in Chicago. Back in 1986 JESUS plainly told me that Wormwood(Barchargis) the Beast-spirit, would attack my family with deadly intent once it could get into THE WORLD. The CHURCH DECISION and DELAY permitted that -- now my brother was dead. I would not go out on a prophetic mission for Mercy Feb 17th but now go to Chicago February 18th for a funeral.

FEBRUARY 16, 1988 - DISASTER DAY ( contd) Years ago JESUS told me "I MAKE YOU A SIGN UNTO MY CHURCH" --thus what I live, the Church will live -- what struck me February 16th, my only blood brother killed, is a terrible sign of whats coming -- and virtually the reality JESUS spoke of years ago. Back in January 1987 when a like DECISION was asked of THE CHURCH, JESUS spoke of the Beast and what would happen if the Church failed to decide for mercy, Jesus said: "YOU WILL HAVE AUTHORITY TO SPARE:BUT WHAT IS LOST IS LOST, WHAT IS SPARED IS SPARED. NOTHING WILL CHANGE IT ONCE DECIDED... SOME TO PREMATURE UNTIMELY DEATHS OTHERS TO GODS GRACE AND HELP AGAINST ALL TROUBLES." JESUS January 13, 1987 "THE BEASTS BREAKTHRU POTENTIAL IS DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE REPLY TO MY WORD... IN ONE THE ENEMY IS GIVEN OPPORTUNITY TO COME THRU, IN THE OTHER, POWER TO KILL MEN IS PLACED IN THEIR HANDS. IT WILL SEEM A DEFEAT AS IN 1986, YET I SURELY INTERVENE AND BY YOU AND NANCY-TONI SPARE MULTITUDES EXCEPT FOR WHOM NONE WOULD ENDURE THE TERROR COMING. JESUS February 8, 1987 ABIDE, I AM WITH YOU." When my mother called me last night to tell me my brother Bruce was dead, I learned he was killed at precisely 7PM February 16th (Pacific Time) just after #518 was drawn in the lottery. That #518 clearly indicated JUDGMENT would prevail over MERCY for now. I was not surprised I stayed up late and prayed and to hear this, sad yes, numbed yes, but not surprised. JESUS who had said little in the last month(which told us trouble was brewing) now spoke saying JESUS WORD FEBRUARY 17, 1988 3:08AM MY BELOVED SON, I HAVE PREPARED YOU AGAINST THIS DAY AND THO ANGER STIRS IN YOU, ITS RIGHTLY RESERVED AGAINST THE DAY I SEND YOU ALL OUT TO DEAL WITH THE BEAST. YOUR BROTHERS DEATH WAS DEMON INSPIRED, THIS BARCHARGIS AIMS AT YOUR FAMILY AND FOUND ONE SUBJECT TO THEIR INFLUENCE. YET, I HAVE TOLD YOU THAT I WOULD KEEP BRUCE AND TAKE HIM TO MYSELF, AND I HAVE DONE SO --ANID SO YOU HAVE INNER PEACE. YES, GO TO CHICAGO THURSDAY AND REMAIN A WEEK, THEN RETURN HOME TO NANCY-TONI. I PROVIDE ALL YOUR NEED AND NECESSITY TO THESE ENDS. IN CHICAGO EXTEND MY SEALING TO YOUR PARENTS, AND OTHERS WHO WILL RECEIVE IT. THR TRIP IS DELAYED NOT CANCELLED, MY BODY HAS PERMITTED THE ENEMY TO MOVE IN TO KILL AND DESTROY, AND SO IT BEGINS - YET I WILL NOT PERMIT IT MUCH LONGER, YOU WILL SURELY GO OUT TO THE EAST COAST, AS SURELY I WILL DO ALL I HAVE SAID. THE RENO TRIP WILL NOW COME FIRST, LAYING A FOUNDATION FOR THE WORK TO FOLLOW. THE WORD NANCY TONI RECEIVED IS PARTIAL, THUS NOT EASILY UNDERSTOOD, THE ENEMY SOUGHT TO BLOCK AND CONFUSE YOU, MORE TO UNDERMINE NANCYs CONFIDENCE BUT HAS FAILED. DECEMBER 6TH IS A LEAVE DATE AND ITS NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 6TH. MANY SHALL FALL AND YOU YET TERROR NOT RISE, THESE DETERMINED. TO WILL PREVAIL AS CHILDREN. BECAUSE T I WILL THE DROUGHT WILL RE EMERGE AS I TOLD NANCY-TONI, AND WHAT WILL COME NOW WILL SEE MY k of Famine Message), YET WHERE YOU ARE, I KEEP THIS WORD MOVE TO FULFILLMENT(thin AREA FROM HARM, AND THO IT BE DRY, THERE WILL BE SUFFICIENT MOISTURE.

THE ROLE OF AN OVERCOMER (contd) As OVERCOMERS in Christ it is NOT our call to judge any, but we are called to forgive, it is NOT to condemn any; but to BLESS ALL, it is not our call to find blame, or place blame, but to LOVE. In ONE ACCORD in Christ Jesus Love, we have solid foundations now whereby we can OVERCOME the present crisis, we begin with PRAYER-INTERCESSION. With ONE ACCORD PRAYER, we can pray for, claim, the blessings of God and now receive them. What we are overcoming is the rebellion-unbelief-slowness of response in the Church--we can only do this by CHRIST LOVE, no other way. We need pray place our Faith in CHRIST in every believer, pray to forgive those who offend us, harm us, bless those that curse us, and seek no harm to any man but rather the promise of life eternal in Christ be extended to all. If I look at just what is the cause of troubles, its not to judge, or find blame --but to KNOW what it is we need OVERCOME by Love, that our prayers be so directed. I WOULD ASK EACH OF YOU... Who are in ONE ACCORD, in agreement for Mercy and Love --to pray on these points: 1. 2. 3.

Pray be filled with Jesus Love to overfilling. Pray forgive all offences against you, to bless those who curse you. Pray asking for Gods Promised Blessings, Claim them, and thank God for them.

4 READ ISAIAH 37:14 to 20

A PRAYER TECHNIQUE Now write down all your needs, be they for finances, healing, what ever. Go before God in Jesus Name and present the

things that trouble you as "THE THREATENING LETTER"(as Hezekiah received)--pray the scriptures. READ LUKE 10:19

Pray this scripture, claim it and command the Devil to take his hands off you and whats yours from God in Jesus Name.

READ HEBREWS 1:14

Pray this scripture, and pray in Jesus Name commanding Jesus Angels go out and gather up all your need to you.

Write down your needs, and mail them to us here --we will in unity in Love pray agree with each of you, in like manner --all in ONE ACCORD. 5. Pray the more to place Your FAITH in CHRIST in His children. By LOVE we can draw those

brethren to Christ by seeing Christ in them - even in the rebellious. Please do this, and persist in your prayers day by day. Lay down a foundation of prayer on the foundations of ONE ACCORD --touch God. Let us now move by the Spirit of God to see DEATH TURNED TO VICTORY thru Christ Jesus, by Love and prayer. GOD PROMISES, BLESSINGS I do not for a moment think that 'finances' are the only blessing, HEALING is another, DISCERNMENT is another, LOVE is another. If some wonder why some are healed and others not --then the lottery effort shows why, for in principle the blessings of finances and healing are the same--all from God. Why? There is discord in the CHURCH, His BODY, and until its OVERCOME, blessings of all sorts are blocked, prevented. Seeing the condition - we can now OVERCOME by Love--this is our call, lets be on with the work of God.
