On the 18th November 2020, I had a dream in which I was in the front passenger seat of a car, driving through the streets of a city. Each side of the road had tall concrete buildings, much like most cities, and there were no identifying marks as to which city we were in. There seemed to be a tension and distress among the people walking on the pavement. They walked almost as if they didn’t know what direction to go in; like ants milling about to and fro.
We passed one intersection and I saw an earthen statue of a person which had been broken and destroyed. The cracked head was lying on the pavement at its feet and broken pieces of earthenware were scattered all over. None of the pieces were big enough to identify what part of the statue they had once been. Briefly, I wondered if this had been done by a rioting crowd but as we were driving fast, I didn’t have time to follow that train of thought any further. A few seconds later, I saw another demolished statue, and then another. They had all been standing on intersection corners, and all were the same kind of earthenware. Some still had the bottom half of the body visible and it was evident that they were hollow inside. This would not have been immediately apparent upon gazing at the statue in the days when it had stood tall and dignified on its prominent corner. I commented to the driver of the car on the large number of earthenware statues smashed. Then I heard a phrase, “The statues have fallen”.
When I woke up, I asked the Lord what the interpretation of the dream was. He pointed out that earthenware statues symbolized earthen vessels and that the fact that they had all been positioned on street corners alluded to the passage where Jesus spoke of those who loved to pray on street corners:
Mat 6:5 Also when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward in full already.
He called them hypocrites ie. Someone who displays themselves in a certain way, but actually, within, they are something else entirely. Statues are only erected of important people; someone who is looked up to and revered for their contribution to society. Then I was given the knowledge that the city I was being given a snapshot view of was Christian City. The huge buildings represented massive ministries, with the statue of their founder or ‘most important person’ immortalized by the statue on the street corner—where it was highly visible. These people who had earthenware statues dedicated to them were really SOMEBODIES in Christian City.
The Holy Spirit also pointed out that all these statues were positioned at intersections or crossroads. In other words, they represented those who claimed to speak on the Lord’s behalf to those seeking direction. They had assumed the position of the One who speaks in the following scripture:
Isa 30:21 And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.
These are prominent Christian figures with very public ministries and the Spirit explained that what I was being shown was the toppling of these kingpins who claimed they had authority and a powerful connection with God, which equipped them to issue words of direction to those finding their way in Christian City—and people hung on their every word. What I was witnessing was the aftermath of judgment for idolatry being executed in Christian City. The statues have fallen. And by their toppling, it became apparent that they were totally hollow. And the people are in distress, milling about like sheep without a shepherd, now that their favorite prophet or teacher had been brought down and their words proved to be hollow or without substance. They had hoped for the fulfillment of these prominent ministers’ smooth words, but the lack of manifestation of all they declared to be coming, had indeed proved them to be those who prophesied out of their own understanding, as Ezekiel 13 declares. This is a very sobering passage, describing well the state of Christian City at the present time:
Eze 13:1 AND THE word of the Lord came to me, saying, Eze 13:2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own mind and heart, Hear the word of the Lord! Eze 13:3 Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit [and things they have not seen] and have seen nothing! Eze 13:4 O Israel, your prophets have been like foxes among ruins and in waste places. Eze 13:5 You have not gone up into the gaps or breeches, nor built up the wall for the house of Israel that it might stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. Eze 13:6 They have seen falsehood and lying divination, saying, The Lord says; but the Lord has not sent them. Yet they have hoped and made men to hope for the confirmation of their word. Eze 13:7 Have you not seen a false vision and have you not spoken a lying divination when you say, The Lord says, although I have not spoken? Eze 13:8 Therefore thus says the Lord God: Because you have spoken empty, false, and delusive words and have seen lies, therefore behold, I am against you, says the Lord God.
I remembered how the Lord had said that, in 5781, empty barrels would be making a lot of noise, purporting to be full of wine but in actual fact having absolutely nothing of value to dispense. Do you remember in an earlier vision, I saw people adding colorant to water to try and make it appear like wine, because their offering plates were empty and they wanted people to support them financially? For all these things, and others, going on in 5781, judgment is coming to the house of God. The judgment on idolatry includes the removal and destruction of the idols which have been worshiped. A pedestal is a very dangerous place for a man of God to stand on. If his heart covets the praise of men, he easily resorts to the influences of deceiving spirits in order to come up with a word that makes people bow before him. And pretty soon, he is also worshiping the image he has set up of himself. Such things God will no longer tolerate.
There is so much prophetic noise in spiritual circles these days, as multitudes claim they have the ‘now word’ of the Lord. It seems that as the shakings increase worldwide, the number of ‘prophetic words’ increases exponentially. It is a bit like the prophets of Baal getting more and more frantic to do or say something that produces a result, before the Spirit of Elijah steps in and speaks TRUTH. So understandably more and more fleshly sweat is involved. And the dazed sheep are seeking direction from those who often have precious little understanding of the times.
Hear me clearly— there are not another 4 years of peace and safety for USA if the current President is shown to have really won the election. 5781 is the first watch of the night, and it IS going to get progressively darker, no matter who finally sits on that seat. And although the Word clearly indicates we are to pray for our leaders, we are NOT to make idols of them or place our hope in them. The shelter of man will prove hopeless in the days ahead. No man is our savior or champion. We have a Champion already, One Who is above all and is worthy of ALL your worship. The cult followings of today’s Christian City are shocking to behold. Yes, God is the One who places kings and removes kings (for His own purposes) BUT this is NOT so we can worship them.
Today,19th November, is 3rd Kislev. On this day in history, the temple was cleared of idolatrous Greek images, as the first step of cleansing and rededicating the temple to holy use began (after Antiochus Epiphanes defiled it). Then, 21 days later, the miracle of Hanukkah took place. Please note that the FIRST thing that had to be done in the cleansing process was the removal of the idolatrous images. That is what my dream testified to; the bringing down and destroying of the idols of Christian City. It will be a shocking process and it will be done by the hand of God, not the hand of man.
I decided to look up the mention of the word ‘statues’ in the Bible. It is the Hebrew word ‘matstsebah’ and is translated variously as ‘a column or (memorial stone); by analogy an idol: – garrison, standing image, pillar’.
Mic 5:12 And I will cut off witchcrafts and sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more soothsayers. Mic 5:13 Your carved images also I will cut off and your statues or pillars out of your midst, and you shall no more worship the work of your hands.
Leviticus 26:1 clearly states that idolatry and raising a standing image is strictly forbidden, because it is God who desires all your worship. He is a jealous God and will deal with any competitors for the affections of His people. Read what He says to HIS people about their idolatry:
Hos 10:1 ISRAEL IS a luxuriant vine that puts forth its [material] fruit. According to the abundance of his fruit he has multiplied his altars [to idols]; according to the goodness and prosperity of their land they have made goodly pillars (STATUES) or obelisks [to false gods]. Hos 10:2 Their heart is divided and deceitful; now shall they be found guilty and suffer punishment. The Lord will smite and break down [the horns of] their altars; He will destroy their [idolatrous] pillars. (STATUES) Hos 10:3 Surely now they shall say, We have no [actual] king because we fear not the Lord; and as for the king, what can he do for us?
Precious saints, it is time for judgment to begin with the House of God. Before the miraculous flowing supply of the remnant oil, the idols have to be removed from the temple. It is the flowing oil that allows the candlestick to be lit so that those who are the light of the world can arise and shine with the glory of God. A candlestick is lit to bring light in a dark place. Who told you sunshine is coming?
Now is not the time to put all your faith and hope in the prognostications of men in ministry as they make grand statements about the great good that is coming to all in Christian City (no matter how they live). If you are doing this, you are going to be greatly shaken when you discover these proclamations to be hollow words. The Spirit of Wisdom stands at the crossroads and invites you to come and eat of her bread and drink of her wine (Proverbs 8:2). This is an invitation you must accept without delay. Your life depends on it!
Pro 8:33 Hear instruction and be wise, and do not refuse or neglect it. Pro 8:34 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. Pro 8:35 For whoever finds me [Wisdom] finds life and draws forth and obtains favor from the Lord. Pro 8:36 But he who misses me or sins against me wrongs and injures himself; all who hate me love and court death.
Transfer any allegiance and awe you still hold toward man who is flesh and desist from continuously trawling the various prophetic sites for a word from God. It could well be colored water in these days. Wisdom wants to feed you with her own hand and offer you her cup of spiced wine. And as you eat her daily portion, you will find yourself strengthened and stabilized and immovable, even as the statues begin to fall by the hand of God. You will not be counted among those milling about like sheep without a shepherd because their idols have been brought low, but rather you will be counted as one of those worshiping at the altar.
