SHALL THE WALL FALL
You ever get a troubling thought that you can’t seem to get out of your head? You ever think this thought may be God warning you of events to come, or challenging you to step out in faith and share what most would consider completely ridiculous?
Well, this happens to me quite often. Go figure, “no not you Jacob, you totally seem to be on the level with most religious thinkers today.” the peanut gallery says. 🙂 lol
In any event, usually I keep these thoughts to myself, but more, and more, lately it seems I am being challenged by myself, and others to share some of these things. As they may indeed be something that the world needs to read, for more reasons than just that these thoughts may literally be true and literally happen, God knows, not me.
In the past, I have felt strongly that I must share something, and only shared with a chosen few, and then realized what a fool I was not to step out in faith and say, “hey I know this sounds a bit off, but guess what, I believe so and so may soon happen.”
The last time this happened, was this past Easter, with the MexiCali earthquake. I knew in my heart an Earthquake was coming on Easter, (see my article TWELVE DISCIPLES IN YOU) for the timestamp email I sent out the day before. I had it on my heart to share that news, yet I didn’t, because I thought to myself… “This may not be true” “People will think I’ve gone even deeper off the deep end then they say I have already.”
Well, after the Earthquake hit, I prayed and asked God, what I was supposed to learn from this. I flipped open my bible and came to the book of Jonah and then it dawned on me. I was like Jonah.
You see, Jonah was scared to tell the people of Nineveh to Repent, because A) He thought they would kill him for saying such things. B) Because he didn’t believe it would matter at all. C) He didn’t believe they would listen. — My personal Jonah issue was D) I didn’t know if what I was thinking was true or not.
I mean how do we really EVER know. We get feelings inside of us, sometimes things happen, sometimes they don’t. God’s ways are above Man’s. So I didn’t know truly if what I thought would occur would occur, as I am not sure what I am about to share is going to occur, or if this is just a symbol of something spiritual within me, that God is dealing with. In any event, I’m stepping out in faith and sharing it. (Remember, I have no real understanding of whether or not this is really going to happen. I just keep thinking about it. And I have had some strange bits of comfirmation that have made me feel like I would be unfaithful NOT TO SHARE.) – So, regardless if this happens or not, there is SOMETHING here that we will, and can, ALL LEARN FROM. That much I know to be true.
I have been praying lately, that God would increase my faith and boldness to step out in that faith. And this article is on HUGE STEP for me. Because what I have been thinking about lately is a very specific event, the question is, it is Imagined (created out of my carnal mind), is it allegorical in meaning (a symbol of what God is doing spiritually), or is it literally going to happen?
Then of course the big question is do you go out on a limb and say, “Hey everyone, got something that sounds a little nutty to tell you.” Then the worry that follows, “What if it doesn’t happen?” “What will people think?” “What if it does, what will that mean?” Worse still, would I become one of those wackado’s that make crazy bold claims and God says, “I haven’t told you thus!”
That is a whole mess of worry and doubt, over a troubling thought that I feel like I am supposed to write about. Don’t you think?
Why is it so easy, for so many other men and women to make bold proclamations saying, “Thus sayeth the Lord” and then none of what they say comes to pass? The people don’t seem to mind much, they keep coming back for more. I really don’t get it. I mean, don’t these so-called Profits struggle with the same worry as I do. Do they return to God again and again and say, “Lord is this what you really want? Is this really going to happen? Am I off my rocker here? Do I just have an overactive imagination?”
Well, I would like all of you to consider how many RELUCTANT PROPHETS there were in the Old testaments. Moses, Jeremiah, Elijah, Isaiah, Amos. They all struggled with their calling. Even Jesus prayed, “Lord take this cup from me” but not my will be done!
And that is the key, I don’t want my will. I want God’s will. The question is sometimes, it is hard to really know. Even after sign and sign is given.
The sign of Jonah, TELL THE PEOPLE TO REPENT, after being the belly of Hell, and Rising out of it. Is that what is going on here? God knows, not me.
How many prophets like Jonah, did not want to do, and say, what God told them. Perhaps like me, for Jonah and other prophets, it wasn’t so clear to hear God.
Perhaps it was a thought in Jonah’s head. Maybe it was in IDEA that came to him. And Jonah said, “NAH, THAT CAN’T BE TRUE!”
After all God speaks in a still small voice. Perhaps, Jonah had this “seemingly crazy” idea pop into his head, “I should go over to Ninevah and tell them to get their act together.” And then Jonah was like, THAT’S NUTS! They would kill me, call me a lunatic, and even if it was true they wouldn’t listen. SURELY GOD DOESN’T WANT ME TO DO THIS?
I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
God doesn’t speak to us clearly, where would be our faith if the literal clouds opened up and he said, “Jacob tell the people this, or do that, and don’t forget to buckle up IT’S THE LAW!”
No God doesn’t speak in LOUD EVENTS.
1 Kings 19:12
And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
God’s words become clear to us, after we SUFFER because we didn’t HEAR him through all the clutter in our mind to begin with.
Maybe, like me, Jonah, thought that this “IDEA” that came to him, was his pride. Maybe he was like, “Oh I’m a big sinner, because I’m looking down on these people for the way they live, how terrible it is for me to think God will destroy their city and tear down their WALL if they don’t turn things around.” —
News flash, if these are the thoughts going through my head at times, why would it be any different for Jonah, Moses, and others?
I mean if they really heard God clearly and KNEW without a shadow of a doubt what they were meant to do. Then why all the running, hiding in caves, departing into the wilderness, fearing for their lives, etc. etc.
Don’t you think, IF THEY KNEW WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT they would have did it. THE WAY GOD INTENDED? … But no, I believe like us, God speaks and it isn’t as clear as we would like, BECAUSE WE ARE YET WALKING IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH.
God provides a multitude of shows and we pass them off as “coincidence”. And then if we put all of these clues aside and say, “Surely what I am thinking is not God’s will” and it IS GOD’S WILL… Then we haven’t been faithful in what has been given.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
So today, I am stepping out in faith. Whether what I am about to share is going to literally happen or not, is not going to concern me… Okay, that’s a fib, IT DOES CONCERN ME… This is something I have never done publically before. But I know that if it be literal or allegorical, there is a reason for me to share this.
You know how I know… BECAUSE I’M SHARING IT! 🙂
Sometimes we need to STEP OUT and be willing to look foolish, and be willing to be wrong, and be willing to take the chance that what is on our heart just might be true.
Now, this doesn’t mean that any and every bizarre thought that comes to mind we should shout to the rooftops. Believe me when I say, I have spoken to many about this, prayed about this and have seen many CLUES along the way.
Some clues are funny, when you think about them. For example ONE CLUE, was that PINK FLOYD was reuniting for THE WALL tour. (Ridiculous as it seems, that is just one, in many)
Another happened yesterday as I was watching a video, and this scripture stood out to me.
And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
Now stones in scripture mean many things. A Stone could be Christ, the law, the very things in our lives sealing us in the tomb of ignorance, the things that stand in the way of the SHEEP getting watered, etc. etc…
However, when I saw this scripture I thought, how does a STONE LITERALLY CRY OUT and make a STATEMENT TO THE PEOPLE?
Well, it has been taught that Jesus was talking about literal STONES crying out and praising God, but when you take this chapter in context. Jesus is speaking with the Pharisees and pointing out their wickedness. Look at the next verse.
41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
Why would Jesus weep over the city of Jerusalem. Because they were putting their faith in man made traditions, man made teachings, man made things, like the MAN MADE TEMPLE as we put our faith in the MAN MADE CHURCH! They were putting their faith in greed, this is why he soon overturns the money changers tables, releases the doves etc…
And sadly this is going on today people. Go to any conference and event. In the outer court/foyer/hallway you will see tables lined with the SACRAFICES TO SELL… oils, books, cd’s, tee-shirt, gum, coffee, video’s, music… Man Made Church is a MARKET PLACE and a DEN OF THIEVES today. This is why judgment (correction) is come.
Now read the rest of this Chapter.
42Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. 43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
Jesus is telling them, that God is going to DESTROY everything they have put their FAITH IN. And this, is the reason I am writing this paper today. Because I believe that may be happening again. The truth has been hid from the eyes of the Religious, they cling to their traditions and vain teachings. And God is beginning to show in the physical what he is doing in the spiritual. He is slowly but surely tearing down all the High Places of man. And with what I have been thinking about, and the above scripture dealing with Stones Crying out… I began to see this as a WALL FALLING and the sound the stones make.
Then not a half hour later, when speaking to my friend Dean, I asked him to grab his bible, to play some bible roulette LOL…. But as I waited for him to grab it, he said… “Okay, this is what I just opened up to… Habakkuk 2:11: For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it.”
My face turns a shade of white. What a coincidence… or as I like to say now “COME IN AND SEE DENSE ONE”
Very bizarre indeed, yet another clue, and puzzle piece backing up what I had been thinking about. So I began to share this terrible thought with some friends, like Dean, and Charles (JesusReligion.com) and they both said the same thing to me. “You should tell people. There is nothing wrong with saying, hey this has been on your mind lately, that you don’t really know what it means, but perhaps we should all think about it.”
So let me come to point of this paper already. For weeks now I have been thinking of literal land of Israel… The place millions around the world call the Holy Land. Mind you, only God is HOLY AND GOOD… No piece of literal earth is HOLY.
Even Jesus said, He “Jesus” wasn’t good, only GOD WAS GOOD.
And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
Mankind is not Good, the temporal earth is not Good, Israel is not good or holy. It is just another country, like any other country in the world. And the WORLD and ALL IN IT are the LORDS.
God does not esteem one man or country above another.
Many mistake the literal land of ISRAEL for the ISRAEL that IS WITHIN (Christ).
When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
So just like any other HIGH PLACE that is EXALTED above God, it must be TORN DOWN. We see the POPE being Torn down at the moment, we see man made traditions like Christmas, Easter, and Others being torn down… Can’t say Merry Christmas in any major stores, it’s happy holidays now… And the religious cry out, “THEY ARE TAKING CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS, They are ALLOWING GAYS TO MARRY, OUR TAX EXEMPT STATUS is not in question, WE’RE ALL BECOMING SOCIALISTS!!!!! It’s the enemy, IT’S THE DEVIL!!!!!”
Yet God is doing all this. God does all for his good pleasure.
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
Listen, the Promise land is not literal Israel. It is the Kingdom of God, which is within.
This is YET another big idol in Religion today. People make their annual trips to this so-called Holy Land, and yet never once bother to journey within. And look, I want to go there too. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, Israel is bautiful and it would be so very cool to see all the places where Jesus stood, etc… BUT, going there does not bring you any closer to God. The literal LAND of ISRAEL is NOT THE PROMISE LAND, it was SYMBOL of the KINGDOM OF GOD WITHIN!
This is why I kept thinking, the WALL IS COMING DOWN, The Wall is coming down.
I don’t know why, but it just made sense to me. The West Wall where so many stick their prayers, kiss the stones, and pray, sing, and dance in front of, as if this wall was GOD itself. As if sticking a prayer in this wall, would expedite these prayers to be answered. I know many ministries even take the prayers of their partners to Israel and place the prayers in the wall. It seems like a nice thing to do, and it is. Nevertheless it is far from what God wants to be done.
So I get this Idea, that something may befall literal Israel, and in particular this Wailing Wall, and of course for weeks I keep my mouth shut about it. I pray about it, and I play bible roulette begging God to open my eyes to what this all means.
Is this imagined, allegorical, literal, and why do I feel like I am supposed to write about it? SURELY THIS SOUNDS NUTTY! But if God be in control of all things, and I believe God is, WHAT CHOICE DO I HAVE TO SHARE WHAT I AM TO SHARE?
Romans 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
No one can stop what God wants done. No one can keep God’s will from being done!
And it is GOD’S will that ALL be saved and come to the Knowledge of the TRUTH.
1 Timothy 2:4
Who WILL have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
Oh I know many of you will say… Well that what God wants, (to have all mankind saved) but that isn’t going to happen… Well WAKE UP PEOPLE, God works all things to ACCOMPLISH HIS WILL.
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh ALL things after the counsel of his own WILL:
His will is to have all men saved, that is why we are all predestined to be saved, this is why we all died in ADAM, so we would ALL be made ALIVE IN CHRIST.
So, really, whether what I am writing is going to happen or not, I am meant to write and share this paper. I don’t claim to know God’s will, I don’t claim to know without a shadow of a doubt that the WEST WALL MAY BE coming down, somehow, someway, whether it be now or in FORTY DAYS as was the case with Jonah. But I am taking my friends advice and sharing this troubling thought.
Here is the reason, if it happens perhaps people will begin to turn their faces toward God again. And if not, perhaps this article will give people something to think about when it comes to putting your faith in TEMPORAL THINGS instead of ETERNAL.
I have to be honest, sharing this article has taken me way out of my comfort zone. But perhaps that is what FAITH is… Stepping out where you have never been before, willing to put your neck on the line regardless of the outcome in hopes that you are doing the will of God.
There is a reason, I have been thinking this terrible thought. I have not had any visions of it, not dreams about it… But I have been THINKING ON IT.
The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
I hope this article has in no way offended any of you. But if this is something that any of you have been “Thinking” on lately, please comment, if not. Please think on these words as to why they were recorded this morning. Because I sure don’t really know why. Of course I wouldn’t want to see anything like that happen, but perhaps it is all just picture of the WALLS in our hearts that we put our faith in that GOD is going to TEAR DOWN!!!! And as the STONES FALL they shall cry OUT, “Return to me, says the Lord of Hosts!”
I will leave you will one last confirming CLUE, that hit me yesterday.
1And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; 3Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 6They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
7Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I AM AGAINST YOU, saith the Lord GOD.
9And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 10Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
11Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that IT SHALL FALL:
It’s time to come out of Babylon everyone. It is time to run for the HILLS of GOD. Because if you don’t when, and if, these and other things come to pass, you will believe you are under attack as opposed to seeing God is trying to wake everyone out of our slumber.
And if these things be true, I pray no one will be hurt physically. I pray only for God’s will to be done in my life and the lives of others, and GOD WILLS ALL TO BE SAVED AND COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
“Nothing is ever lost that isn’t recovered and when it is, it is one thousand times more precious then when it was lost to begin with.”
Look to the very important but least known Jewish Holy day, Shavout… This year it begins May 18th. Here is a brief history of it. During this time, there is a “pedestrian pilgrimage”. Early on Shavuot morning -– after a full night of Torah learning — the streets of Jerusalem are filled with tens of thousands of Jews walking to the WESTERN WALL.This tradition has biblical precedence.
Shavuot is one of Judaism’s three main pilgrimage festivals, where the entire nation would gather in Jerusalem for celebration and study.
Now look at the importance of this Jewish Holy day.
This is the anniversary of Matan Torah, the giving of the Torah, at Mount Sinai. It also MARKS THE BEGINNING OF THE SUMMER HARVEST.
What does Shavuot mean?
The Torah refers to the holiday of Shavuot with three names: Chag HaKatzir – the REAPING HOLIDAY
Yom HaBikkurim – Day of the FIRST FRUITS
Shavout – Weeks
Will the wall come down on or around this festival, I do not know. But it sure would blow the minds of the thousands pilgriming there.
If not a wonderful allegory, of the WALL inside of us all, called the VEIL that is soon to come crumbling down around us. But either way, I belive the STONES WILL CRY OUT TO THE WORLD. Peace Jacob
Much love to you all, Jacob
