Flags of the Nations
Your Proper Attitude to Them
Grace and peace in Yah'shua our Messiah (Jesus Christ) to everyopne receiving this word today.
"We will rejoice in your salvation (Yah'shua), and in the name of our Elohim (God) (Yahweh) we will set up our banners!" (Ps.20:5, NKJV).
I hardly know where to begin today though I do know what I have to say. My message is simple and short: men, get into alignment with Yahweh - quickly - you don't have much time. And women, get into alignment with your husbands - quickly - because you don't have much time either.
During the night I saw visions of men chasing around undoing the chaos that had resulted when their women had done things outside their authority. I saw evil spirits running amock, distracting, misleading, numbing and subduing the children of men who would not follow the tavnith (pattern) of Yahweh's Torah (Law). People excused themselves saying that there was no 'tavnith' because the only tavnith is fenceless, Torahless love. I saw them internally divided, some with a degree of foundation in Messiah but with the rest of them high up in the clouds of their own fantasy, worshipping themselves and their dreams, with the world inbetween as a wedge or division. I saw how the reckless use of money to build these dreams was being dissipated into useless pursuits when Yahweh had intended it to be saved for the basic necessities in the dark days that are rapidly approaching. I saw the idols that men have set up - substituted for Yahweh - and all erected in the name of 'love'. And the fruit of this 'love' was lawlessness, anarchy, chaos, and division within households and within congregations of believers. For hours and hours I saw these things during the night.
Once He spoke to me audibly, shortly before I got up: "Get the flags of the nations out of your House (Bayyit)", so the first thing I did when I got up was to collect my fairly sizeable collection of international flags and put them away. I took me just under an hour. I knew, as I was doing this, that what I was doing was symbolically removing what these flags represented - national customs, national laws, national traditions, national habits, national entertainment, national sin, national idolatry, national lawlessness, national hatred of Messiah (Christ), and national hatred of the Nation above all nations: Messianic Israel (not the Israeli Republic in the Middle East).
Yahweh has commanded us to "rejoice in [our] salvation, and in the name of our Elohim (Yahweh) ... set up our banners".
These are not any old banners or flags but ones that proclaim Him. Those of you who know this ministry know that we have done this for a long time. Two of them are displayed here - the one above depicting the Lion of Judah (Yah'shua) as King and the one below the red blood-atonement cross of Yah'shua (Jesus), His purity and sinlessness (white), and the tricolour the opposition (black), cleansing (white) and love/wisdom (blue) of the overcomers in this ministry.
King Solomon committed many sins but one of his greatest was marrying women from non-covenant nations who turned his heart to their gods. He, the supposedly wisest of all men, became fascinated by these demonic entities and their supposed 'wisdom'. They destroyed him and his united kingdom of 12-tribed Israel. Though we live in the nations as a scattered flock, and must remain in them until the Final Gathering, we have little in common with them or the flags which represent them. Not until they repent and turn to Yah'shua (Jesus) can our minds and hearts be different toward them:
"But I saw no temple in [the New Jerusalem, the Holy City], for Yahweh-Elohim Almighty and the Lamb (Yah'shua/Jesus) are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of Elohim (God) illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honour into it. Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). And they shall bring the glory and the honour of the nations into it. But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life" (Rev.21:22-27, NKJV).
In many countries churches have their national flags displayed somewhere up near the front of the building on one side of the altar/podium or on poles in the church yard. The picture above shows a typical American Baptist or Pentecostal Church and the one below shows the national flag draped over the altar itself, an Anglican Church in South Africa!
It is one thing to love the people of your country and to even love your country, but to represent it in the House of Elohim (God) when that nation does not recognise the Lamb of Elohim or submit to Him or bring their glory and honour to Him and lay it before Him in worship and praise, is an abomination! There have been times in many nations where Elohim (God) has been honoured, albeit it with false traditions, and this has been better than godlessness. Scripture states that nothing of the nations can enter His Bayyit or House until those nations and their rulers submit to Yahweh and bring all their tokens to His feet. And since the Bayyit or House of every believer is supposed to be a miniature House of Yahweh and New Jerusalem, as well as local congregations, how can they bring the emblems of nations and their governments into their Solemn Assemblies when those nations and governments hate Yahweh! This goes for every nation in the world currently, including the Middle Eastern entity which people have misindentified as 'Yahweh's Country'. Get them out of your homes and sanctuaries, lock them away until they have repented!
If you are not sure about this, look up "the nations" in Scripture and see what Yahweh says about them and how He will treat them and how we as His people are to treat them.
Though storms should not be the impulse to get people to repent but a love of Yahweh and His Word, major storms are on the way and are imminent, and it is imperative for Yahweh's people to get themselves sorted out now! Those houses that are not built on a solid foundation of Emet-Truth will fall - they will be washed away by the storms quite suddenly and without warning. Only those who have prepared themselves and built properly will survive and prosper. Please repent now!
