A prophecy by Bill Somers

Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows. And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it and Elisha put his hands upon the king's hands. And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it....

The test of the true shepherd is how he reacts when the wolf comes

During a recent worship service, one of our songs was This Joy That I Have. The lyric includes the lines, The world didn't give it to me and the world can't take it away. As we worshipped with this song, the Lord gave me a word for Pastors. First I imagined that Jesus was singing the song. This is fitting since He endured the Cross because of the Joy He saw ahead. Then the lyric changed to This Church that I have, the world didn't give it to me, and the world can't take it away. This brought to...

The End Times

Joel chapter 2 is full of end time prophecy. This is another clue, which is that the rains have to do with the end times. Also note that in Joel it says God will send the former rain and the latter rain in the first month, that is both at the same time. Here's another clue that we're talking about a supernatural rain. Zechariah 10 1 Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field....

Events In The Gospels

On the 10th Jesus entered Jerusalem and went to the Temple to be examined by the priests. Berthelson explains that he probably followed right behind the procession of the Temple Lamb. Therefore there were crowds of people already on the scene. Once they knew he was coming they rejoiced and blessed him. In effect they were choosing his to be their spiritual Passover. On the 14th Jesus kept the Passover. How could Jesus eat the Passover with his disciples Mt. 26 on the day before Passover He kept...

The Blessing Of Abraham

Galatians 3 speaks of the blessing of Abraham as The Promise Of The Spirit in verse 14, a very interesting connection. In verse 17, the Lord refers to the law as the covenant that came 430 years later, saying it could not cancel out the promise. 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man...

Mixed with Faith

Another way of expressing this is to look at the idea of the word mixed with faith. Heb 4 2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. This is saying the word needs to be mixed or received by faith. For those without faith, the word is of little or no benefit. What is the word that is not mixed with faith It's the plain word with no Spirit in it. It is natural, not supernatural or flesh...

By Bill Somers

There is a large room with several people seated in various places. A door to the outside is open and someone very important is approaching, about to enter through the door. He casts a shadow ahead of him that can be seen on the floor of the room. There are some that can see the shadow very clearly because of where they are sitting. Others can hear the voice and footsteps of the person when it's not too noisy in the room. Still others can sometimes get a glimpse of...

Covenant People

So our covenant doesn't just go back to 1776, neither does our history. The covenant is that made by God with the original colonists who came to this land seeking freedom to worship Him. And, perhaps for their sakes, he would have us to be in right standing with Him when he returns. That he may be able to spare us the final wrath and desolation prepared for the world. Praise God What is inevitable is, I believe, a. economic and social chaos, b. bombing of our cities and c. invasion of the land....

Jubilee 2 Prophetic Aspects

Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth are not his days also like the days of an hireling Job 7.1 We have written an earlier article called The Coming Jubilee, which outlined some interesting prophetic features of the biblical idea, the year of jubilee'. The Jubilee is a celebration to take place on the 50th year after Israel came into the Land. The Jubilee Year for the Nation of Israel is 1997. The state of Israel came into being in 1948, 1998 will be the 50th anniversary but 1997 is...

King Josiah And Revival

Then He showed me that it was to be a Josiah revival I regularly listen to the bible on tape sometimes the Lord will illuminate some passage and give its application. He gave me this scripture speaking of King Josiah. And quickened it as applying to America 25. And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to the LORD with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses neither after him arose there any like him. 26 Notwithstanding...

Removing the Veil

That blindness on the part of Israel is symbolized by a veil. Here we find it mentioned in second Corinthians. 2 Co 3 13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished 14 But their minds were blinded for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament which vail is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart....

Wilkerson Blew A Trumpet

First let's consider that of David Wilkerson. David Wilkerson wrote 'Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth' in 1985. the first paragraph of chapter one reads thus. America is going to be destroyed by fire Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more. It is because America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours....

The New Covenant In The Old Testament The Hebrew Part Of The Bible

The first place you find it called a new covenant is Jeremiah 31. 31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel...

The Florida Outpouring

Now we have the Florida Outpouring and an escalation of this conflict. Last week I sent an email message to a select group stating how I felt about all this. The text is below. Dear Friends We have seen a fresh batch of criticism rising up against the Florida Outpouring. It only comes from a few sources, yet many others are repeating and circulating these messages. It's clear to me that we are seeing an increase in the ongoing strife in the church. The long prophesied 'civil war' is heating up...

Quenching the Spirit

This instruction is from 1 Thessalonians 5, where we are given a list of short commandments. It could also be called grieving the Spirit as mentioned in Eph 4. Eph 4 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away...

Entering Into the Kingdom

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The Kingdom of God is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost. What does this mean I believe that these are the signs or results of entering into the kingdom. That is to day, if you have entered into the Kingdom of God, they you should have Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost, and that on a continual basis. In these days we experience Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy...

Meaning of The Scroll

Moses had a commission to tell the Israelites that God had sent him. 'Tell them I am that I am'. That I AM had sent him. He also had authority to pronounce judgments. Jesus had the same commission to reveal the Nature of God to the people of God. And he had the authority to pronounce judgments. In the End Times it will be God's people in this role. In Revelation 5, The Lamb who is worthy takes the scroll. Juster states that the scroll represents the decrees of God concerning the acts of...

And the man that committeth adultery with another mans wife even he that committeth adultery with his neighbors wife

Not only did this ignorant carpenter confound them by quoting the law exactly, He wrote it out perfectly, upside down and backwards so that all who were facing Him could plainly read it 7. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. The power of this rebuke has stood as an indictment of man's hypocrisy down through the ages. Regardless of what Jesus wrote, you can see that it broke them,...

Ruchha 2000 Seed

The relationship of the Church and the Jews throughout history is treated in Michael Browns book 'Our Hands are stained with Blood ' This book touched me very deeply. Some time after reading it I was led by the Lord to put one of its recommendations into practice. That is one that deals with what Dr. Brown calls Intercessory Repentance. It entails repenting for the sins of an entire group of people, and perhaps to a group of people who were sinned against. The repentance is a form of...

Gods Hot Sauce

In South Louisiana a standard table item is the bottle of hot sauce. Several years back while applying this to some of my wife's home cooking, the Lord showed me a parallel between it and the church. This seemed good to share at this time, as I believe we are about to see it come to pass. Hot sauce has three ingredients. Water, cayenne pepper and vinegar. And in these we can see a picture of the Church Water represents the people of the Church. The pepper is the fire of God, or the anointing,...

The Other Guilty Party

Some have said that the reason all the Pharisees left the temple was that they themselves were among those guilty of committing adultery with the harlot. The text viewed from the natural does not support this, but viewed as types it does. If this scene represents Satan accusing the church of spiritual adultery, isn't he the other guilty party We have seen that the Law requires that there be two guilty parties and that both be put to death. So cannot the Lord reply 'well tell me Satan, just who...

Revival Louisiana Needed A series of messages via electronic mail Edited and compiled by Bill Somers

The Prophetic List sent out the following message on December 18 of 96 From Korpi < korpi_tlcm earthlink.net> I was instructed to ask a certain pastor for his prayer needs. At first he was hesitant, but when I shared that God had instructed me to ask, he became more open. The pastor shared two needs. One was victoriously met by the very next morning. The other need was for revival in Louisiana, USA. Since God had appointed me to pray, I asked him to show me the situation, in the spiritual...

THE FAMOUS VISION OF GEORGE WASHINGTON In connection with the message of this book, we felt it would be appropriate to include the famous vision of George Washington. One of the incidents of his life that has come down to us concerns one Isaac Potts, secretly a Tory, who provided George Washington a headquarters during the time he was at Valley Forge. There was...

Bill Somers Prophetic Vision

Sometime in the early 90's an email correspondent got me involved in a discussion of Calvinism, hyper Calvinism etc. One of the issues as I recall was the effect of Jesus work of atonement on the cross. Or in other words, did Jesus die for all mankind or not And is Jesus work of atonement, that paid the price for our sin, sufficient for our salvation Or is there something man must do to be saved If Jesus died for all, and if his death is sufficient for salvation, then all would be saved, the...

The Setting

Ruth is a gentile, a widow of a Jew and Naomi is her Jewish mother-in-law. She is from Moab where Naomi and her family have stayed for some years. In the passage of time, Naomi's husband and two sons all die and she is left with two daughters-in-law. Naomi decides to return to her home in Bethlehem but urges her daughters-in-law to stay behind in Moab. Here is Ruth's famous confession whereby she identifies with Naomi, her homeland, Israel and her God, Jehovah. Note that in verse 17 that she...

A Look at the sealed books, what are they why are they sealed, when will they be unsealed. There are three references to sealed book(s) in the Old Testament. The most well known is that in Daniel. Here is part of it Daniel 12 4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. We find two references in Isaiah on the same topic. Isaiah 8 16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. 10...

In 2 Thessalonians we find mention that he comes to take vengeance. 2 Thessalonians 1 6-8 6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not...

Lessons from the Duck Yard

At our home in Gonzales Louisiana my wife Marylee keeps a collection of about 40 ducks of several types in a large pen in the yard. We live on 3 acres, so we have the room. We have a hose running from the house to the duck yard to give them water when needed. And they usually had plenty to meet their needs. We live in a very rainy part of the country, so often the duck yard becomes a sea of mud. That is mud, mud, mud and more mud . Why mud Well, because ducks have a habit of thoroughly...

Why the Soviet Union Thinks it Could Fight and Win a Nuclear

Baird Professor of History, Harvard University Reprinted from Commentary, 1977 A Summary of the Argument by Bill Somers American and Soviet nuclear doctrines are diametrically opposed. They are products of totally different historical experiences and political and socioeconomic systems. The apparent contradictions in Soviet nuclear doctrine and the dangers of U. S. unilateral adherence to a strategy of mutual deterrence are best understood when put in historical perspective. The American view...

The Battle For Gibeon As The Battle Of Armageddon

From Joshua chapter 10, these are the key verses. 3 Wherefore Adonizedec king of Jerusalem, sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying, 4 Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon for it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel. 5 Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon,...

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 1 John 3 16 KJV In the account of the vision of the altar, Arlette says when I had seen the altar, the Lord had spoken these words to me, that it was about obedience, and sacrifice. Farther down she has this to say Later my friend and I would pray that the fire of God's purification would come down from heaven. We prayed for the fire to burn off the dross within His...

Yerushalayim Shel Zahav Jerusalem Of Gold

About a year and a half ago, just before the Hezbollah war broke out, I found myself weeping over Jerusalem the same way. There is an Israeli song, Jerusalem of Gold which I heard quoted on the Paul Wilbur CD Shalom Jerusalem.

This song was especially composed for a 1967 Israel...

The Kingdom

In Mathew 24, this promise is clearly linked with the end times. Mt 24 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and then shall the end come. The promise that the nations would be justified is called the gospel of the kingdom. The terms 'nations,' 'heathen,' 'Gentiles,' and 'families or tribes of the earth' all mean the same. In Revelations they are spoken of as of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. Today missionaries...

Moses Passover Compared To Jesus

The lamb is killed at 3pm Jesus dies at 3pm. 5. The lamb is eaten at 6pm Jesus is buried at 6pm. 6. At midnight the first...

The Victory Of The Church Bill Somers

Then three thousand men of Judah went to the top of the rock Etam, and said to Samson, Knowest thou not that the Philistines are rulers over us Judges 15 11 Samson is often seen as a type of the church. He can also be seen as a type of the Lord Jesus, the patterns are similar. There are several points of correspondence that are usually mentioned as proof. The Spirit of the Lord was come upon him, He became corrupted, He lost his great strength, He became a captive to his enemies He lost his...

But if ye be led of the Spirit ye are not under the law

That is to say, you are not under the law only if you are fully led by the Spirit, not before. Now notice how the idea of receiving the Spirit is linked with faith in Galatians 3 Ga 3 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith 3 Are ye so foolish having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain if it be yet in vain. 5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and...

It comes from the word denominate, which means to give a name to designate. This comes from the Latin nomen, which means name .

Dream by Nancy Gaitan Interpretation by Bill Somers

I had a dream in which I was riding in an old car, there was an older man driving, and an older woman sitting next to him in the front seat. I was sitting in the back seat looking around. We were on a dirt road going up the north side of a mountain in the dream the mountain was a mountain here called Konocti . I looked out of the window and on my left, I saw a large commercial plane. It was painted Red, White, and Blue this part I believe is significant to the larger picture, as we live in a...

Introduction

There are two main points to bring out. First is that Naomi and Ruth are types of Israel and the Church. This is, of course, considering them as separate groups. And we are talking about the Church as she is supposed to be, a friend to Israel, in the end times. Second is that Ruth's actions on behalf of Naomi are a picture of the actions and accomplishments of the church in the end times. Ruth does for Naomi what Naomi could not do for herself. That is to provide an heir and enable her to...

The Tabernacle of David and Mount Zion

What is the Tabernacle of David and what does it have to do with Mount Zion The exact phrase Tabernacle of David is mentioned at least three times in the bible. Much of this is done in brilliant figurative language. 11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith...

Mustard Growth Characteristics

Mustard seedlings emerge rapidly but tend to grow slowly after emergence. Under favorable moisture and temperature conditions, the ground will be covered in four or five weeks. Five weeks after emergence, the plant will begin to bud. At this stage, the crop will appear rather uneven. A week to 10 days later the plant will develop into full yellow bloom and the stand will appear more even. Good moisture supplies favor a long blossoming period, and longer blooming periods result in higher yield...

If the literal sense makes sense seek no other sense Cooper P Abrams

This is the actual definition that literalists use. It entails avoiding exaggeration, etc. Literalists do in practice allow for metaphors and figures of speech. Where they often fail in practice is right at the root of their very own method, which is upholding the exact or primary meaning of a word. See Who's Taken and Who's Left Behind by Joe Ortiz. However literalists consider this principle to be of major importance. Is there any scripture offered to support this No. But literalists offer...

Another Scriptural parallel

In First Corinthians chapter 13 we can see, if we look with prophetic eyes, the transition to the New Covenant typified. He calls it a 'more excellent way'. Up to that point in First Corinthians we witness the spirit addressing the problems found in a church under the law. They are disputes, divisions, all manner of pride, strife, abuse and contention. The church seen in First Corinthians is a real mess. But the more excellent way is that of Love. When he speaks of the love of the father 'shed...

The Pickle Recipe

A good way to explain this comes from a word study on baptism, as we are looking at the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Some time back I copied the following definitions from the On Line Bible program. This definition of baptism came with a very interesting word study that illustrates what God is about to do in the Church. There are two words closely related to baptism Bapto and Baptizo. 1 to dip repeatedly, to immerse, to submerge of vessels sunk 2 to cleanse by dipping or submerging, to wash, to...

Stringing Pearls and Connecting Dots

We said above that, when it comes to the bible in many cases, without the guidance of the Spirit, you just won't get it. The phrase 'get it' is especially suited here because it can be a lot like getting a joke. It requires something to click in, in your understanding for you to get a joke. In fact there is a joke on this very topic. For some people, it seems that they laugh 3 times at every joke. The first time the laugh is when you tell it. The second time they laugh is after you explain it....
