THE MYSTERY OF TWO WOMEN – Two Wildernesses, Two Tables, One Choice
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
Revelation 12:6, 14 NKJV
6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
Zechariah 5:5-8 NKJV
5 Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, “Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.”
6 So I asked, “What is it?” And he said, “It is a basket that is going forth.”
He also said, “This is their resemblance throughout the earth: 7 Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket”; 8 then he said, “This is Wickedness!” And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth.
Matthew 10:34-36 NKJV
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set[a] a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’
It’s the beginning of Rosh Hashanah this very evening, which marks the start of the year 5779 in the Hebrew Calendar. Rosh Hashanah commences from the evening of this very Sunday 9th of September and ends on the evening of Tuesday 11th, September 2018. I am not in any way knowledgeable concerning the Hebrew Calendar, writings or studies. However, I know for sure that the Hebrew Calendar and Jewish events or holidays all have significant effects on the entire world somehow. For obvious reasons, God seems to enjoy having it that way. I came across a few things I believe will help us understand the season we are in. See the excerpts I copied from the internet, below:
“Understanding of the times and seasons is nothing new to the Tribes of Israel, indeed, it’s even understood within Nature itself. Even before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the sons and daughters of the Tribe of Issachar were known to have a deep understanding of the times, and they knew by faith what it was that would need to happen next in order for the Jewish people to align themselves with God’s plans. “And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do” (I Chronicles 12:32).
For example, this last decade from 2010 to 2019 has been all about “seeing” what God is saying about you, about your life, about the plans he has for you and for the world around us. It is not so coincidentally conjoined with the Hebrew Letter “Ayin” a picture symbol of an eye and characterized modernly in the number 70. Every year in the Ayin Decade coincides with another letter in the Hebrew Alphabet which was revealed in the early Jewish Talmud as having Heavenly significance, just as the instituted feasts (Rosh Chodesh, Yom Kippur, Passover, the Feast of Weeks. etc.) and appointed times of the Old Testament.
This coming year, 2019 in the Greco-Roman calendar, coincides with the Hebrew year 5779, 70 being again part of the “Ayin” decade but also 9 being a “Talet” or picture symbol of the snake. Thus, we can expect 2019/5779 to be a continuation of the last ten years, in which God has been inviting us to “see” what He is saying. September 2018 to August 2019 will be no different, except that this 5779 year will be the culmination of everything God’s been preparing you for in order to step into the next season – “Pey” the decade of the mouth, speaking and declaring the Kingdom into Earth.”
(Culled from WalkingEve’s “A Look Ahead: 5779 (2019) The Year to See the Snake in the Grass”)
Thus in line with this, its safe to say Happy Rosh Hashanah to our Jewish brothers.
Yes, Rosh Hashanah is basically the celebration of the beginning of the Jewish new year, just like we celebrate 1st of January as the start of a new year. However, there is something about the year 5779 which is important for us to understand. I won’t say much about it in this article, but I would like to highlight the number 79 as it relates to the coming age. Seventy, as a number, speaks of wisdom and nine, as a number, speaks of birthing or bringing forth of that which has been incubated in the womb. Thus, the year 5779 speaks of the birthing of the wisdom that is needed for the age to come. The age to come, or to put in another way, the age we are entering in, is hidden in some mysteries that need understanding that will help propel each man to decide how he wants to live and survive in that age. Lots of things are coming to their final conclusion as they relate to God and man, man and God, God, man and creation. They’re also tied to the mystery of birthing through death as it relates to the womb as an holding place for life.
The mystery of birthing, reaping, re-generation, sustenance and provision are all tied to the female side of God. Every new thing or new birth both physically and spiritually always begins in the womb, a reality which shows how important the female side of God is and why it was created in the first place. The female side of God, from the days of the fall in the garden, has been silenced and relegated to the background. However, in this age of the third day, in which the sons of God must manifest, the female side of God will no longer be silent, but will come into her fullness as the mind of God for this age is dependent on it.
The Bible is loaded with stories of women who did some really amazing things for God and by whose lives the realities of heaven were expressed on earth, lots and lots of them, however, there are two women I want to speak about as it concerns our day. These women are not really women as we refer to gender, but they are expressions of the mystery of the womb that takes in seed, nurtures it and then gives birth. By their expressions, the entire world is influenced either for good or for bad. And side by side with the story of these two women is also the reality of two wilderness expressions and the reality of two tables at work. In other words, in this article, we are dealing with two women and the influence they have on the earth and the two wilderness realities tied to each of them. I will try to give clarity as much as I can.
Revelation 12 (Please check it) speaks about the sign of a woman in heaven, clothed with the sun and with the moon under her feet. She gave birth to a male child that was caught up to God and was given the wings of a great eagle to fly into the wilderness where she is nourished with manna from God and water from the rock, away from the face of the dragon who seeks to destroy her. This event of the sign of the birthing of the Male Child happened in our world on the 23rd of September 2017 (You can search for that event online). And then Revelation 17 (Please check it out) also speaks of another woman in a wilderness but with a different personality and attributes. Dressed in all manner of gem stones, purple and red robes of royalty and with the name “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. ” written on her forehead. She is seated on a scarlet or red beast which is the picture of the red dragon. In her hands is a golden cup full of the wine of fornication and abomination with which she made all nations drunk with the wine of her fornication. But notice that scripture says where she sits is upon waters, hitherto it is a wilderness and the waters are peoples, nations, tribes and tongues. Basically, she is seated upon the entire length and breadth of the known world. Please take note of these two women, their attributes, their nourishment and the influence they have. For it is very important to understand them and how they affect the present and coming seasons.
Dear reader, you will need to take the next statements to heart, for lots of things in the coming days are tied to their understanding. Truth be told, the entire world is divided into two categories of people. Those who love God and those who don’t. Those who eat from the table of the woman upon the scarlet beast, drinking the wine of her fornication and those who are in the wilderness as the woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, being nourished by the manna that comes from heaven and drinking of the water that flows from the rock who is Christ Himself. Their table is the table of Wisdom from where they are nourished with the Bread and the Wine from the presence of God (See Proverbs 9: 1-6). Obviously, there are no grey areas at all in this. Everyone on earth must by choice fit into one of these wildernesses, be nourished by the influence of the woman in charge of the wilderness of their choice and then reap the eternal consequences of their choices. The words of Christ in Matt 10:34-36 will find absolute fulfillment in the days of the influence of these women, which day we are in now. Jesus said “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on the earth, but a sword…”
The two edged sword of His mouth by which spirit and flesh will be separated. The dividing line has been drawn in the sands of time and every man has a choice to determine on which side of the divide they will be.
THE TWO WOMEN
I will now give a bit of explanation of the women we are looking at. It is clear that these women are not physical as to gender, but they are real spiritual expressions of the things that are on the earth and that which must also take place on the earth. Also, from scripture, we know that the Revelation 12 woman is the picture of the New Jerusalem coming down from heaven from God, which is also the Bride or the true Body of Christ. In a sense, it’s a picture of the children of Israel sent from Egypt into the wilderness to be nourished of God and to learn His ways. A people separated to be a kingdom of priests unto God, but which experiment has failed. This woman is the picture of the corporate body of Christ called out of the world into the place prepared of God for Her. She is the expression of all things that gives God joy and that which prepares the way for the Kingdom of His Son to be manifested on earth. All creation has been waiting for ages for the manifestation of this glorious Woman – The Bride of Christ, The Overcomer. Even the Devil is afraid of this Woman and the Male Child she gave birth to, who will crush his head and rule the enitre nations of the earth with the rod of iron. For further reading on the New Jerusalem, see Galatians 4:21, Revelation 21:2.
The woman on the scarlet beast is also not a woman by gender, but she is the symbol of the system of this world that is against the system and kingdom of God. It is the spirit of wickedness, fornication, idolatry, every form of abominations before God. It is Babylon, that great city that started from Babel. It is the spirit behind buying and selling, the worship of money etc, by which the entire earth is soaked in filth before God. (You can check my other note to read about fornication.) She has control of basically everything on earth which is not of God, but she is not the ultimate enemy of God in that she works for another enemy of God and will be destroyed shortly by God, through the same master she serves. More on this in subsequent articles. She is the spirit behind the love of money, (for Mammon or Ahab is her “husband”), love of sexual immorality and perversions, idolatory, wickedness, deception in the church, deception in the world and everything that is abominable before God. She is the hidden spirit of the old world order of buying and selling which the supposed elites of this world want to destroy, in order to create the New Word Order or a one world government etc.
The difference betwen these two women is so huge that i wonder how men don’t see these things and make choices that will save their lives. One is clearly carrying the expressions of the Love for God, while the other, the total expression of all that is evil and against God. The difference is as clear as day and night.
The expression of wilderness or the expression of the wilderness that God puts a man in, after that man has found a testimony from the mouth of God about his walk of faith, is the place where the only things that nourish him are manna, which is the word of God spoken to him each day and then the water that comes from the rock which is the Spirit of Christ. It is the mystery of Providence that breaks every rule of commerce, money or its influence and which sadly the institution church has walked away from, but which is ever real for the Called Out ones (The true meaning of Ecclesia). Man shall not live by bread alone (the things God provides daily as food, clothing, money, business etc) but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. This in itself shows clearly that wilderness for God is not necessarily the lack of physical things nor is it poverty that makes a man feel he is suffering for Christ. The wilderness God puts a man in is that place or circumstance where by deliberate choices, a man lives his life with the absence of external enhancements of flesh and begins to live in Spirit and thrive only by that which comes from God, irrespective of whether the man is a billionaire physically or has no money. The lifestyle of the wilderness of God has faded from the hearts of many in the body of Christ. Even church leaders who have subjected themselves to the table of the woman upon the scarlet beast, eating of her delicacies and robed in her clothes of self deception and false royalty, which are nothing but abominations before God.
However, the wilderness expression is not only attributed to how God deals with the men He separates unto Himself, the woman upon the waters is aslo said to be in a wilderness from where she rules the abominations of the earth. See what Revelation 17:3 says “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” The spirit of the seductive woman who sits upon the scarlet beast has fully hypnotized many to the point of them bowing down to that which makes men marvel at the false beauty and grandeur of Babylon which is the spirit that rules in the hearts of the sons of perdition. And while the woman who gave birth to the Male Child is nourished with the bread and wine of the Spirit of God, the woman upon the waters is fed with the blood of the saints and the wine of fornications of the world. And she is the mother of them that live abominable lives before God on the earth, while the Revelation 12 woman is Sarah or the New Jerusalem, the mother of us all (Gal 4:26).
The year 5779 in the Hebrew Calendar, which will align with our 2019, speaks of the birthing of the ancient wisdom to live in the age to come. The mystery of Jehovah Jireh which is the mystery of the God that provides, will be fully at work from now on. But Jehovah Jireh is not about the provision of physical things that enhance our flesh, but the provision of eternal things whose wisdom will put to shame principalities and powers of this age. God is about to make a grand show of His sons even as they manifest His beauty, holiness, power and name. The wisdom that created this earth is the same wisdom by which the manifesting sons of God will deliver creation from futility into their liberty of Spirit. This wisdom is also referred to as a woman in attributes. (See Proverbs 8 and 9). This is the mystery of Jehovah Jireh, the One who provides for Himself that which is needed to bring all things back into Himself.
As said earlier, the Hebrew year 5779 which is our 2019, speaks of the birthing of the wisdom to live in the coming days on earth. The two expressions of women as global influences are real. All men must determine for themselves on which side of this divide they will dwell in the coming days. The wilderness of manna from heaven and water from the rock or the wilderness of the wine of fornication of Babylon are both real and are opened for each man to make a choice to walk into. The fearful thing about this reality is that, eternity is also tied to their influences. For whichever of the two women you belong to will determine which seal you will have. There is the seal of God on the forehead of those whose names have been written in the Lamb’s book of life from before the foundation of the earth and there is also the seal of the beast which comes as a mark, a name or the number of a name. (See Revelation 13). It is critical that each one understands the workings of the coming days, make the choice of which side to belong and then begin living out the lifestyle that befits that choice. For each decision will determine the nourishment or the malnourishment to follow. The intention of God is to bring all things created back to Himself, in the real sense of the original way they were made for His pleasure. There are lots and lots of layers not covered in this article and it requires wisdom to search scriptures for yourself in order to make accurate judgment of the times and seasons, which will then propel the accurate adjustments needed. Our world has been crippled badly by the wine of Babylon and few are able to discern her workings and walk away from her entrapments. Each one must make his own choice. The time for that choice is now.
MORE ON THE WILDERNESS
No one who has a call of God and who has a testimony of the walk of faith can avoid going through the wilderness. Every calling of God for a man to be separate from the world instantly leads him into the wilderness. It happened with the father of faith Abraham, when God told him to leave his country to a place He God would show him. Job lost everything and entered into a painful season of wilderness just because God was boasting about him to Satan, thereby having a testimony from God that he walked by faith. Jesus was led into the wilderness just after God said “This is my beloved Son”. Lots of stories in the bible speak of this reality of the wilderness and how the walk of faith in practical terms, means a life in the wilderness with God.
However, this wilderness, like I too was fooled to believe in the earlier days of my walk of faith, is not that separation you do to prepare yourself for a preaching or any kind of ministry, or to set up a mega church. No it’s not. Yes, that separation prepares you, but it’s much more than that. For if you pay attention, you will notice something that happens when one sees wilderness as separation to prepare for ministry. You stop getting nourishment in that wilderness after a while. Why? The expectation you have from God begins to change to something like “Lord, when will this wilderness end so I can enter into ministry and start eating the fruit of the years I have put into the separation?” In other words, “When will I start making money to compensate for the years spent in the wilderness?” This is the deception that has gotten hold of the church and this is how many sons of God find themselves enrolled at the table of Jezebel’s wine of fornication without knowing it. This is how men sell their eternal inheritances in God for that which enhances flesh and leads to eternal damnation. The wilderness of God is a perpetual lifestyle of total dependency on God’s eternal ability to provide eternal things.
My question to you Overcomer is this, why do men love the things of this world rather than the things of God? Why do men choose to eat from the table of Babylon rather than from the table of Wisdom? To figure out the answer to this question will save you from falling into the traps of Babylon. For Wisdom, which is the Spirit of creation and by which Jehovah Jireh will be unravelled again on earth, also has a table. She is the Spirit that works in the hearts of those who have been given wings like of a great eagle to fly into the wilderness where they are nourished by God. See what scripture says about Wisdom and her table:
“Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars; She has slaughtered her meat, She has mixed her wine, She has also furnished her table. She has sent out her maidens, She cries out from the highest places of the city, “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!” As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him, “Come, eat of my bread And drink of the wine I have mixed. Forsake foolishness and live, And go in the way of understanding.” Proverbs 9:1-6 NKJV
By this, no one is left with any excuses of how to live in the days of these two women. For all shall give account of their lives and their decisions before God, whose eyes see eternity from eternity.
For Jehovah Jireh is not dead and He has not forgotten His own words that He will provide for Himself a sacrifice. Meaning, God has the ability to provide for each and every one who will heed the call to come out from among her (Babylon) and be separate. But not everyone will heed His call and that’s why I do not write to everyone but to those who My Father has put within the range of my voice… The Overcomers.
So to you dear Overcomer I say, remember that everything that God destroyed in Egypt is what every nation of this world is run by and are chasing after. Beautifully enough, they were the same things God provided for Israel supernaturally in the wilderness. God destroyed Egypt’s army, agriculture, commerce, economy, technology, magic, banking, marine life, landscape/tourism, fashion, health and all other sectors that run Egypt. All these God provided in the wilderness without the help of any man. Water from the rock, bread from heaven, quails by the wind, fashion He provided by making their clothes and shoes grow with the people and not wear out, military protection by the angels and Himself etc. Meaning that God is not stranded at any point, but we must come to believe that He is who He says He is and will not fail in His promises.
So dear Overcomer, as you enter into the year 5779 of the Hebrew Calender tonight and as you prepare to enter into 2019 in three months time, remember to seek from God the Wisdom that manifests the reality of Jehovah Jireh. The creative Wisdom that birthed everything you see both in heaven and on earth. And do not forget that there are expressions of two women at work constantly in our world, two wildernesses and the realities of two tables set and prepared.
The system of God works perfectly and supernaturally for all those who will heed the call to leave the table of Jezebel and come into the wilderness where the table of Wisdom is waiting.
Heed the call now while there is but a short time.
God bless you.
