2005 Shepherd's Rod, Part 2
Bob Jones and Paul Keith Davis
Day of Atonement - September 25, 2004


For the righteous it will be a season of harvest. However, it will be a very dangerous time to flagrantly sponsor things contrary to the nature of God. A season of repentance will be offered; if perpetually rejected, a measure of judgment will be released. While in the prime of their lives, many of the unrepentant wicked will find themselves at great risk during this season.

It is always our hope and expectation to present encouraging messages that are a blessing. However, to be wholly honest and forthright we must also state that the justice of God has judgment in it as well. Justice will be blessings upon the righteous and judgment upon unrighteousness.

Incredible grace has been and will continue to be offered for repentance. As the apostle Paul challenged young Timothy, we should with gentleness and courtesy bring spiritual correction. It is our hope that perhaps God may grant repentance to the wayward leading to the knowledge of the Truth.

In this way, many will come to their senses and escape the snare of the adversary that has held them captive (2 Timothy 2:25-26). Even so, correction must come but from the right spirit.

However, the continually unrepentant will be separated according to the parable of Matthew 25:32-40. The faithful sheep will be promoted to a place of blessing and favor. This will be accomplished through principles of the kingdom highlighting the Lord Jesus as the Just judge.

In recent days it has been apparent that many with evil agendas have been exalted while the righteous have been humbled. Now that the spirit of humility has been established in a body of righteous believers, that trend will be reversed.

The righteous will now experience seasons of divine favor while many of the wicked will come under discipline. Evidence of this is already at work is portions of the national media.

Beams of Light

Different places in this nation will be identified as "lighthouses" of God. From them great beams of Light will extend to the nations of the earth. This impartation will be distinguished with great spiritual insight and divine revelation. God's truth will begin to deal with false influences among His people. According to the prophecy of Isaiah:

"Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. For you have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with influences from the east, and they are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they strike bargains with the children of foreigners." Isaiah 2:5-6

Secrets and mysteries of God are poised to be released into this generation. Although three specific locations will be inaugurated in the coming days, this invitation is also extended to many others. Willingness to leave our comfort zone and embrace the impartation of Heaven will qualify those seeking to become God's lighthouses.

Many of the locations for this release will be totally unexpected. The Lord promises to visit whosoever is willing to humble themselves before Him. There may be spiritual streams that are entrusted with this endowment that will be quite surprising to many people.

In the vision, it was apparent that the beams of Light were coming from many different directions. However, three of those locations seemed to be significantly more brilliant. There will be three "hubs" raised up by the Holy Spirit to be delegated end-time "Light."

To these places, spiritual and natural provisions will be afforded for multimedia outlets. Radio, television, and various mediums will be utilized to distribute the spiritual Light entrusted to them.

This directive was clearly presented as an invitation. Individuals and fellowships willing to respond to God's qualification can be utilized in this purpose. In a general way, it was clear that hubs were located in at least three places - the southern Gulf Coast region, the Northeast, and the West. An emphasis was placed on the phrase "at least" three places. There can be more depending upon our responses.

We are called to be the light of the world. From our innermost being will flow rivers of living water that will be expressed as Light in dark places! A great responsibility will be placed upon the prayer ministries moving in revelatory prayer. A delegation of spiritual authority will come as "light" is shed upon ploys and schemes of the adversary.

Prayer can change things and expose devices of the evil one, including nuclear weapons enemies of God and this nation would like to discharge in America and Israel.

Part Five - Insight From Psalm 105

Psalm 105

In this year's revelations, it seems that Psalm 105 provided prophetic directives that characterize this era in God. As a result, we will simply present the insight that the Holy Spirit shared through prophetic "bullets."

Verses 1-3

We enter His gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. See John 13:31 and John 14:13. Let the heart of those rejoice who seek the Lord, for they will be contented. This will be a season for those who truly seek the Lord to find contentment.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick! There have been many heart-sick people in the church. However, we are now approaching a season in which promises, some of which were given many years ago, are about to be fulfilled. Hope will displace hopelessness.

Verse 4

We have spent far too much time seeking the Lord's hand and not enough seeking His face. If we have His presence we have all that we need. Without question, the Lord desires to release to us His gifts and anointing. However, the main objective for this generation is to walk in the manifested Presence of God.

This is a season that we can ask of the Father and receive when we ask from a pure heart. See Matthew 7:7; Psalm 138; Luke 11:9-13.

Verse 5

The quality of our testimony is vital. The book of remembrance is being opened to inscribe the testimonies of the faithful. See Malachi 3:16.

The Book of Remembrance contains the names of those who walk before the Lord in reverential awe and weep over the abominations being committed in the earth.

This sacred book is held dear by the Lord! It contains the names of those who faithfully join themselves to Him and carry His heart for their generation. According to the prophetic promises in Scripture, the end-time generation is identified as the harvest of the ages.

We are to carry the Lord's dominion over demons, disease, and death. Many names will be transcribed in the Book of Remembrance in this day; such people will enjoy the benefits of Heaven itself.

Verses 6-8

The year of the blessings of Jacob. Abraham is the Father of faith. The faithful will receive the blessings of Jacob. (See section on "The Blessings of Jacob.")

We are entering a season in which righteousness will be learned through expressions of God's justice and discipline (Isaiah 26:9-10).

(Much of this portion of the outline has already been addressed in prior sections of the Shepherd's Rod)

Verses 9-10

The Lord honors His word above His name (Psalm 138:2). When God gives His word, He honors it. A promise was made to Abraham to deliver his descendants from the bondage of Egypt. When it came time for the promise to be fulfilled, a deliverer was sought and found in Moses.

The Lord is searching now for "deliverers" through whom He can fulfill promises made in His word and to our spiritual forefathers (Hebrews 11:33).

We are not yet Israel, but we are at the river Jabbok where transition and transformation takes place. Jabbok means "emptying out." We are being emptied of our own agendas, ambitions, and opinions in order to acquire His. (See "The Blessings of Jacob.")

Those who overcome will be granted a white stone with a new name written upon it to reflect their change of character. Many saints are poised to have their name changed and inherent covenant promises. Upon them, angels will ascend and descend as they walk before an open heaven.

Verses 11-15

The commissioning of Joshua was one of war. The land of Canaan is taken only through confrontation. Our inheritance is secured with violence. Our spiritual blessings are in Heavenly places. That is the same domain of the principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness. Therein lies the conflict. In order to obtain the fullness of our inheritance we must overcome. We must contend for our birthright.

The remnant seed will be sown for harvest - sowing in the spring and reaping in the fall. Twelve spies ventured into the land of promise, but only two returned with favorable reports. Each had equal opportunity to remain faithful to the Lord. Nevertheless, only a devoted remnant conveyed loyalty to God.

At the present time, there are only a few in number who have pressed through great difficulty to overcome. However, a wave of harvest is imminent to introduce this dimension to the corporate body.

Much of what we sow during the early months of next year will be harvested in the latter half. Those who seek will find, and those who perpetually knock, to them it will be opened.

This passage is a representation of our call to the nations. Truth and power that is birthed in the coming season will be taken to the various regions of the earth.

Those who receive a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive the prophet's reward. A childless woman was kind to the prophet Elisha and received him as a representation of God. For that faithfulness, she received the desire of her heart - a son (2 Kings 4:13-17).

The prophetic voice will be speaking profoundly in the coming days. Those that embrace the Lord's message will receive rewards of favor.

It will also be a dangerous time to reject, ridicule, and persecute the hidden manna that will be proceeding from behind the veil. The apostolic/prophetic voices will be sent to the places in which their words will be profitable.

Genuine prophetic messages will begin to emerge over the next several months and years. It will draw a line delineation that is easily recognizable between the Lord's voice and a counterfeit. Both the Church and the world will recognize this prophetic anointing resting upon God's people.

Verse 16

At the present time we have not had a famine of revelation, but of spiritual understanding. There has been a wave of revelatory insight that has come, but very little perception has been joined with it. Comprehension of our revelations is as important as obtaining the revelation itself. Daniel received insight WITH understanding (Daniel 9:22).

There will be much stress in the world, both naturally and spiritually. Those separated from Christ and His canopy of protection will find a famine of peace and security. We will either have an abundance of faith, which separates us from fear, or a famine of faith, which amplifies fear.

Verse 17

Many of those with the Joseph calling will now be elevated from the dungeon to the throne. The Joseph message has been heralded extensively throughout the last several years. There will now be a measure of release for this company of people with a very unique responsibility.

This season will mark the end of waiting for many. Their years of difficulty and hardship have prepared them for the notable authority and provision they must steward.

There will be great diversity inherent with the "Joseph" calling. It will be both spiritual and natural. This anointing will carry many people into the financial, political, marketplace, and spiritual arenas. God's influence will be felt in each of these dimensions.

Anointing for creativity for this select group will flourish. The imaginations of this company will be anointed with the virtue of the Creator. These attributes will touch the arts, science, and engineering. Many are already seeing by divine revelation new architecture and efficient building designs.

There will be a tremendous release of divine inspiration into the souls of this company (Daniel 1:17). The word of the Lord has tested them and prepared them for this special calling. Both Joseph and Daniel portray extensions of this special mission.

This dimension of the Shepherd's Rod revelations were also addressed extensively in "Books of Destiny." We will include another portion of it with the hope of bringing clarity and understanding.

From Books of Destiny:

Supernatural Endowments

In many ways, Daniel and his three friends are representative of the manner in which the Lord will equip His people for the special assignments set before us. The Babylonian captivity of the Jewish people provides a prophetic portrait of the Body of Christ's condition and a hint of the Lord's promise of spiritual deliverance.

Daniel 1:17 describes the special empowerment from Heaven imparted to the former.

God gave them knowledge and intelligence in every branch of literature and wisdom; Daniel even understood all kinds of visions and dreams. The Lord gave them revelatory knowledge and intelligence in various matters of writing and literature; bestowing by spiritual transference the blessing of unique knowledge and exceptional capacity in literature and all manner of written work.

The Lord quickened in them special skills to apprehend and articulate spiritual understanding and heavenly wisdom. Daniel was notably gifted with supernatural perception into all manner of visions and dreams. God had empowered them to excel in governmental scholarship.

This pattern will also apply in this day when the Lord discovers devoted obedient hearts of the spiritually strong. Then vast storehouses of revelatory insight and supernatural knowledge concerning Scripture, creation, science, the arts, and many other subjects will be entrusted to believers who follow the model of Daniel and his three friends.

These four young men provide a prophetic standard of those who know their God intimately and accomplish great exploits.

These friends of God will engage the revelatory realm of Heaven. They will be marked by their excellent spirit and granted acute perception and understanding to interpret dreams and visions, clarify revelatory experiences, and solve difficult and enigmatic problems.

They will be people who receive insight from the throne room and respond to God's invitation to be shown future secrets.

During a prophetic experience I had a few years ago, the Lord told me that Daniel 1:17 was spiritually linked to Ephesians 1:17. These are parallel passages offering the same promise with different time frames. One is from the old covenant and outlines God's dealings with humanity during difficult times, pointing to a future day of supernatural intervention in the world. The other, expressed in the new covenant, records the heritage of believers.

Despite our perceived personal limitations or lack of educational opportunities, the Lord is a quickening Spirit. As our legacy, He has promised to impart life to our mortal bodies and to grant us the spirit of revelation to access mysteries, secrets, and revelatory knowledge.

In Roland Buck's throne room experience, two thousand Scriptures and references were immediately imprinted on his mind. Buck reported that the Scriptures were written on his heart and mind in a split second as a printing press inscribes information on paper. Numerous other testimonies exist of individuals who were supernaturally granted the ability to recall the entire Bible from memory.

Many who attended Maria Woodworth-Etter's meetings were caught up in the Spirit to experience visions and revelations from the Lord. In these supernatural encounters with God, some would be commissioned as missionaries to foreign lands; they would emerge from their vision capable of fluently speaking the language of the nation to which they were called.

The Father enjoys revealing His Kingdom to us and performing awesome deeds only He can accomplish. It was a small thing for Him to rejuvenate the bodies of Abraham and Sarah and quicken them with strength.

Even after Sarah's death, Abraham, well over a century old, continued in the strength imparted to him and bore many more sons by Keturah (Genesis 25:1). The Lord is more than able to equip us with the supernatural gifts needed to access the unfathomable treasures hidden in Him

As the Bible also promises, the Holy Spirit knows what is hidden in darkness and exposes deep and secret things. Light dwells with Him, bringing illumination to what has been set apart and reserved for the generation of destiny (Daniel 2:22).

God promised He would give us the treasures of darkness and the concealed riches of secret places so we would know it is the Lord who calls us by our name (Isaiah 45:3). This divine promise supplies both the riches of revelatory insight as well as the natural provisions essential to fulfill the mandate of this kairos moment.

Even now, individuals are engaging the revelatory realm of Heaven and receiving downloads of insight into physics, light, sound, and spiritual colors. The apostle John's visit to Heaven's throne room outlined awesome sights, sounds, and vibrant colors surrounding God's seat of dominion and victory.

The more understanding we have of that realm, the greater our ability to cooperate with Heaven in demonstrating the Kingdom on earth.

Those being awakened to this realm and seeking understanding in science, physics, and the elements of creation are not super-geniuses with great scientific minds. Most are ordinary Christians who are tapping into God's heart as He releases His mind to the bride.

Much will be spoken and written in the coming days involving this dimension of our heritage. As with Einstein, an insatiable desire to understand creation and the Creator will flourish in the hearts of many Christians. Access to the spiritual books of Heaven will be granted in order to provide divine wisdom, revelatory knowledge, and supernatural strategy.

End Excerpt from Books of Destiny

Verses 20-21

Unsaved people in positions of authority will recognize the favor of God upon this company and seek their counsel. Even more than that, these leaders and executives will ask for a blessing from this company. Heads of corporations will seek these "Josephs" for leadership positions to direct the future of their businesses. Though they will be in the world they will not be of the world!

The kings of the earth will recognize Heavenly wisdom and prophetic insight resting upon the overcomers of this day. They will embrace these specially prepared ones as Pharaoh embraced Joseph, and Nebuchadnezzar exalted Daniel.

Many wealthy people will hire Christians so that their companies will prosper. In the coming days, Zechariah 8:20-23 will become a living reality.

Righteous will be delegated the power to bind and loose according to heavens design. They will bind ploys of wickedness and release standards of righteousness.
See Matthew 16:19.

Verse 23

As the justice of God becomes more apparent, it will become increasingly important to be hidden in God. Egypt is a representation of the world while Babylon is a representation of spiritual confusion. Both of the natural and spiritual arenas will come under the justice of God. The righteous must be hidden in Christ as a form of Goshen to receive His canopy of protection. See Isaiah 26:20-21.

We must be hidden in God while indignation runs its course. It will be a stressful year, but not for those in Goshen.

Verse 24

This is a portrayal of power evangelism. Judgment will always open the door for the release of righteousness and a wave of harvest.

Verse 25

The carnal and liberal mindset will mock Christians and hate them because the spirit of this world will not control them. The lifestyle of the righteous will be a reproach to the wicked. See 1 John 3:13; Matthew 15:18.

The liberal political camps hate our current president because he stands for righteousness. It seems to stir something deep within the core of the unredeemed when a leader takes a stand against carnality and unrighteousness.

We should not be surprised or confused when we are hated by the wicked.

If the Church will take their stand and pray for our president, then the liberal political machine will not have its way this election. The resulting backlash will be greater disdain for the Christian community and the conservative agenda.

Verses 26-27

Moses was a representation of God's government and Aaron was the appointed priest. It is now time of the apostolic leadership to emerge. Likewise, there will be a fresh and powerful anointing upon God's people as a royal priesthood. The veil to the Holiest Place is now open for the royal priesthood to access; in that sacred place, discovery will be made of the hidden manna reserved for this day.

There will be great revelatory inspiration resting upon divinely appointed teachers called to fulfill their priestly role. Truth will be in their mouths and there will be no unrighteousness found upon their lips. The Lord's priests are called to guard and present, in purity, the knowledge of God. People should seek instruction from their mouths, for they are the messengers of God (Malachi 2:5-7).

This will be a consolidation of governmental offices - the prophetic office combined with apostolic authority and inspired revelatory teaching. A new standard will be established by those entrusted with this duty. That is why the past season of preparation has been so intense. The calling is great!

The signs and wonders are to draw the unsaved in power evangelism. The time of debate concerning the validity of the apostolic office is over. It is now the appropriate timing for them to the revealed. This will introduce a fresh and powerful day for the Church.

This will be a time of darkness and a time of light. These days will be marked as a season of enlightenment. There has been a testing of the faithful; for them it will be a season to emerge in revelatory truth and spiritual power.

Verses 28-36 - The Ten Plagues

The Holy Spirit has directed us to once again outline the ten plagues of Egypt as it relates to the spiritual climate of this day. We were first instructed to do this in 1998. A seven-year season has come to a completion. A renewed emphasis is emerging.

For us, Egypt has always been a representation of the spirit of this world. Babylon is a portrayal of spiritual confusion. One depicts the natural and the other the spiritual adversaries set against the covenant people of God and the harvest of souls.

Clearly, natural and spiritual indications can be readily discerned through our news media and the various reports continually being put before the people. Plagues, viruses, natural disasters, solar flares and other celestial events, along with many other such occurrences, all point to this generation of destiny. We must be awakened.

The Bible clearly announces that those without spiritual understanding will have the seed of destiny snatched away by the fowl of the air. Those with understanding will become fruitful fields producing thirty, sixty, and hundredfold harvests (Matthew 13:16-23).

A Call to Prayer

The intercessors are told in this year's Day of Atonement revelation, "File charges against mother nature." When Jesus and His disciples were crossing the sea of Galilee, a storm empowered with demonic forces attempted to withstand them. The Lord stood in the boat and rebuked the storm. He expelled the evil power enforcing the squall, bringing a calm to the Sea of Galilee.

In the same way, the intercessors are being challenged to stand in the authority of God's Word and rebuke the demonic forces empowering many of the devastating storms. The Lord is allowing many of the natural disasters that are coming to the earth. However, the enemy enters into these storms and greatly amplifies the devastating effects. The amount of damage done by the coming natural disasters will depend greatly upon the willingness of the church to intercede and combat these forces on behalf of mankind.

The term "mother nature" used by the world is a reference to fire, wind, rain, flood, hail, and other such storms. When the judgments of God were allowed on the nation of Egypt, culminating in the death angel passing over Egypt, the nation of Israel was given a covering to protect them from this judgment.

God's covenant people were told to place blood on the doorposts of their homes. This act of obedience allowed the death angel to pass over His people; the Lord would not "allow the judgment to touch Israel."

When the Lord sees the blood of His Son on the house of faith, then many of these judgments will pass over the church. However, we must act in obedience to God's Word and intercede on behalf of the believing church as well as the world. The effectual prayers of the righteous will remove the amplified effect of the storms and their devastating results.

The first way to turn back the effect of God's judgments is through repentance. After repentance we then go to the courts of God to "file charges" against the evil that is being released in the earth bringing devastation. In essence, we are going to the Lord's courthouse in order to call upon the justice of God.

Plague 1 - The Blood (Exodus 7:19-25)

As a result of this miracle, all the fish abiding in the Nile died. The fish perished because of polluted water.

The admonition to the church during this year is to be extremely careful of the water that we drink. Throughout the Bible the anointed Word is referred to as water. However, when that water has been polluted as described in Jeremiah 23, it then becomes unsuitable for drinking. Biblical teaching that has the precepts of man injected becomes polluted.

When people reject the revelation of the anointed word and continue to drink polluted water, they will not be able to function in God's end-time blueprint. Without God's great grace we will no longer be able to function and survive in the atmosphere that is coming.

Much of the common grace that people have been surviving by will be removed, bringing great pressure to those who have not totally committed themselves to the Lord and to the revelation of His Word.

There is much witchcraft, idolatry, and sorcery that presently exists within the institution referred to as "the church." Those who have exercised a spirit of control over people will no longer be able to do so; but there must be a renewal of a "RIGHT" spirit according to the Lord's divine nature and His Holy Character.

The leaven of the Pharisees, as described by the Lord, is a reference to man-made teachings that pollute the true revelation of God's Word. This admonition is a call for the removal of the leaven from the Lord's House.

The releases of the ten plagues of Egypt were like dominoes - with one plague leading into the next. So shall it be in the coming plagues. One plague will actually set the stage for the release of the next. The blood also has the implication of the beginning of economic shaking. We will not see the collapse of the economy during this year, but we will see considerable shaking that will erode the foundations of trust within people.

Those who have put their trust in anything other than the Lord will have those foundations shaken, thus setting the stage for a purging of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the boastful pride of life (1 John 2:15-16).

This will reveal what kind of water people have been drinking. If the church has been placing its trust and faith in the economy or in any other thing outside of the Word of God, then that polluted water will cause those areas of the people to perish. They must then purge themselves of these evil lusts and replace them with faith in God's anointed Word.

The bombardment of evil reports from the news media concerning events occurring in this country will continue to escalate. If a person looks at those reports without having faith in God, then they will become neurotic and will look for something to calm them during these seasons of testing.

Plague 2 - The Frogs (Exodus 8:1-15)

The frogs also represented divinity to the Egyptians. This form of false god was revealed to be nothing more than putrefied flesh and the source of a fowl odor that covered the entire land of Egypt. So shall it be in the coming year with false gods that people have erected for themselves that will be unable to either save them or provide a source of peace during the coming tribulations. Even within the church, there are many who have made idols out of images and other such false gods that will be rendered powerless and exposed for what they truly are.

Even as Israel had to endure the first three plagues of Egypt, so shall the church experience the first portion of the judgments that are coming to the earth. Even though we will be experiencing tribulation and hardship, we are to be encouraged through Habakkuk 3:16-18.

Though it is not an encouragement to hear that the church will endure certain trials during the coming season, it is imperative to know the mind of the Lord so that we can properly respond according to His Word. Even in the hardship and trials, "yet I will exalt in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation." When we obediently respond in this manner, then the season of trials will come quickly to an end and the Lord will give us peace and joy in the midst of storms.

Plague 3 - Gnats (Exodus 8:16-19)

This year will see a great shaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Men attempting to intellectually understand many things taking place this year will result in frustration and disillusionment. Their failed attempts will result in the admission, like the magicians of Egypt that this "is the finger of God." This is an indication of much insanity that will be seen during the course of this year and the time that follows.

The church will turn their eyes toward God and cry for help and the Lord will put a division between the church and the world when they do. This will mark a release in the demonic realm on a higher level that we have not been accustomed to before now. This release will take place in the "thought" realm against the mind and imaginations of man. The church should be admonished to "gird up the loins of her mind" and rest our hope fully on the divine favor that is to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:13).

The gnats and mosquitoes represent aggravation, irritation, frustration, defeat, and discouragement in a profound way. When a Christian experiences these emotions and allows them to consume their thinking, then they become unable to hear from God, allowing the enemy to successfully sidetrack them from the purposes established for them by the Spirit. We are instructed to rejoice even in the midst of these circumstances so that our minds can remain clear and focused upon the Lord in order to receive further instructions and clear discernment.

One thing that is certain, we cannot base our relationship with God upon our own works. It is not because of any merits of our own, but because of His loving kindness and compassion that we stand. Those who base their understanding of their relationship with the Father on the works that they accomplish for Him will be sorely disappointed as they recognize the futility of their works. Doing things for the Lord in obedience is appropriate. However, the fullness of our relationship with the Lord is based completely upon His finished work at the cross and His divine favor.

The hoard of demons will do everything they can to rob us of our peace and get us into strife and will try our longsuffering to tempt us in impatience. They will try our faithfulness to see if they can keep us from doing the things that the Lord has called us to do. Instead of gentleness, they will attempt to force us to make rash decisions and instead of self-control, they will attempt to make us angry.

This is not a year that we will have our own way. The church and the world will not have its way this year. The Lord's ways are so much higher than our ways and His thoughts are so much greater than our thoughts that we must now lay aside our ways and our thoughts and take upon ourselves His ways (Isaiah 55:7-9). Satan wants to replace good thoughts with seeing everything that is evil. He wants to rob us of the fruit of the Spirit.

The enemy wants to make us cruel to those around us rather than sources of blessings and sources of light that will provide illumination during this season of darkness.

Plague 4 - Insects (Exodus 8:20-32)

The Lord is now going to bring a division between the church and the world. Many have observed that there is little distinction between those who are in the church and those that are in the world. These hardships that are coming will mark a true line of demarcation between that which belongs to God and that which does not.

Even as the land of Goshen was set apart, so shall the faithful believers in Christ be set apart during the midst of these hardships and tribulations. All authority has been given to Christ and He has delegated that authority to the church. It will now be time for the church to assume her rightful position of authority and intercede in a new spirit of unity.

Thus far, the enemy has been able to conquer through division as the church has been separated into many segments and streams of belief. However, history has proven that unity is always the end result of an attack by a common enemy. The church will now enter in to a new level of unity as a result of these things that are coming. The Lord will then loose His angels and His power to bring true separation between the church and the darkness of the world. This will result in tremendous torment and darkness for those apart from Christ.

The demonic opposition to the mind will become so great, that those without Christ will literally become numb in their thinking and overwhelmed by hopelessness. In the natural realm, we will see many blood infections and infectious diseases spreading on a new level. The El Nino that is coming will release biological germs and infections throughout the foods that we eat and the weather patterns will result in increased spread of new diseases and infections that we have not known before. Man shall not be "at ease" but will be "dis-eased" (Leviticus 26:20).

Plagues of man, pestilence, famine, war, and the wild human spirit, unrestrained, will result in the bank account of man being "sucked" dry. Even as the Ghad flies sucked the blood out of man, so shall the substance of man be sucked dry.

It is recorded that the ghad flies were more numerous and annoying than gnats and, when enraged, fasten themselves to the human body, especially to the edges of the eyelids and become a dreadful plague. This represents the addictions that are the result of the "lust of the eyes and lust of the flesh." These addictions are the results of man's search for pleasure outside of Christ. The eye is the gateway to the soul and we must be especially careful of what we allow ourselves to watch.

"Who among us can live with continual burning...he who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed, and shuts his eyes from looking upon evil." Isaiah 33:14-15

We must flee to our prayer closet; for only there shall we find the rest of God. There our strength and substance can be replenished through the blood of Christ and His Holy Spirit.

Plague 5 - Pestilence (Exodus 9:1-7)

The substance of the world will affect the stock market. Even as this judgment destroyed the livestock of Egypt, so shall all that man places the "stock" of his life in be destroyed. This is primarily in reference to the stock market and the economic tremors that are coming. The earthquake itself will not come during this year but there will be many tremors.

Men's hearts will fail them because of the things that will shortly be coming upon the world. However, the church shall prosper and grow strong during this season. A clear line of distinction shall be seen between the church and the world. Whatever things the world puts their stock into, other than Christ, shall fail this year and the years that follow.

Plague 6 - The Boils (Exodus 9:8-12)

As the judgments continue in a domino effect, the body is weakened from the diseases and viruses that are being released in the earth. Through this weakness in our bloodstream, sores will emerge both in the natural realm and in the spiritual.

Boils are extremely sensitive sores that create great pain when touched. So shall many of the elements of life that people have put their trust in be exposed as futility, which creates a very tender sore spot in the hearts and minds of people! However, those who respond in obedience to Christ during this time will be granted a spirit of repentance according to 2 Timothy 2:25-26. There is power in the blood of Christ obtained through heartfelt repentance and reconciliation.

There will be a genuine release of the spirit of repentance among the believers during this year and the time to follow. Many will "OVERCOME" this year by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. This year we must choose whom we shall serve. The opportunity is given to return to Christ; yet if that opportunity is not taken advantage of, then there will be an increased hardening of the heart.

The spirit of repentance will set many free. The scriptures tell us that if we have love for the things of the world, then the love of the Father is not in us. A great percentage of the church still holds to a love for the world. That separation will be taking place beginning this year.

Plague 7 - Hail (Exodus 9:17-35)

The voice of the Lord will be calling forth the wind, the hail, the fire, and the famine, but the Lord is not in either of these. He is in the still small voice. He is going to speak in the still small voice as heard by the prophet Elijah.

"I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the level; then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies and the waters will overflow the secret place." Isaiah 28:17

During the course of this year the Lord is going to profoundly take issue with the doctrinal error presently in the church. Where doctrinal error once had a stronghold, the Spirit of Truth will now reign. The Lord is going to release like hail the Spirit of Truth that will bombard, shatter and destroy all strongholds of error that have been taught and embraced by the church.

This will be a release of the "Rhema" word - the God anointed and God breathed Truth by the spirit of revelation." The Apostle Paul once prayed that believers would have a spirit of wisdom and REVELATION OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST. It is this strong spirit of revelation that will be released bringing true light to the scriptures.

A vivid distinction will be made between the things that the Lord is supporting and those that He is not. That distinction will be made by the Spirit of Truth, which will guide us into all truth and reveal to us things to come. The spirit of error that has prevailed in the church is high on the Lord's target list and of a great priority to Him during this year and the years to follow.

The Lord is going to sprinkle clean water upon us that we may be cleansed of all filthiness and idolatry. Any form of false god embraced by people will be revealed for what it is. The Spirit of Truth will then cleanse those who embrace His judgments and His Word, in obedience, in order to receive a new heart and spirit. Then the Lord will impart His Spirit in us, causing us to live according to His statutes and His ordinances (Ezekiel 36:25-27).

Even in judgment the Lord showed mercy to Egypt as He admonished the Egyptians to flee the fields to safety in order to alleviate certain death. Those who were obedient to this admonition survived and those that were not, perished.

Plague 8 - Locust (Exodus 10:1-20)

The East wind is always a judgment wind. A spirit of poverty will be released to eat up the substance of the world. If you are a Christian, and the world is your source, then get ready for poverty. However, if God is your source then get ready for the storm shelter of God, which is the secret place of the Most High. That is not only a place of protection and fellowship but it is a place of promise. For it is written in the scriptures,

"I once was young but now I am old and I have never seen the righteousness forsaken nor His seed begging bread." Psalm 37:25

"For thou hast abandoned thy people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with the influences from the east, and they are soothsayers like the philistines, and they strike bargains with the children of." Isaiah 2:6

Spiritual famine is the result of mixing the true revealed Word of God with influences from the East or psychological teachings from far-eastern religions. Much of the philosophy and psychology that is counseled in the church is actually the result of many eastern influences. This will produce spiritual famine and death and must be alleviated for true spiritual growth. There will even be sorcery and divination masquerading as true prophetic ministry. Spiritual discernment is essential in the days to come.

This year will provide a great reward for those that are righteous and respond in humility to the Word of the Lord and the purging that is forthcoming. Great fellowship and provision are promised for those that respond in such a manner; yet hardship and tribulation for those who do not.

Everything the Lord has been speaking through these plagues and the promises that are given to those who obediently respond, are not limited to this country or a small geographic region. They are intended for the entire world and have international implications. As it is written in the Psalm the whole earth shall see the salvation of our God.

Plague 9 - Darkness (Exodus 10:21-29)

The darkness that was brought upon Egypt was so great that they could not see one another, and no man arose from his place. The Israelites alone "had light in their dwellings" (verse 23). This does not refer to their houses but means that their part of the land was not visited by this plague.

If your god is not the Lord then get ready for great darkness. Depression, fear, and defeat will be your gods. However if the Lord is your God then be ready to dwell in "the orange light of the Lord." This, I believe is a reference to the companionship and intimacy that is available to those that respond in faithfulness and obedience.

The Lord is going to send people with a ministry like unto Joseph. Joseph was not only a prophet but he was also a deliverer who provided a source of plenty in time of famine. He is going to impart divine wisdom to certain people allowing them to be sources of plenty even during the seasons of darkness and famine.

Great darkness and famine will exist in the world while the land of the church will experience light and sources of plenty.

Even in the great darkness that will exist in the world, the Glory of God will be seen in the church. The purging, cleansing and purification through these judgments and hardships will be the preparation for the visitation of the Glory of the Lord. The Glory of the Lord will begin to be seen in the church in this season (Isaiah 62:1-5).

Many of the things that will be initiated by the Holy Spirit during the course of this year will actually continue for the next seven years. We are entering into a new seven-year season of the Spirit that will see the unfolding of all these things. We must have the discernment of Elijah who was not moved by neither the earthquake nor the great wind, but responded with humility and discernment to the still small voice that produced the Glory of God.

Plague 10 - Death of the Firstborn (Exodus 11:1-12:30)

The human faith that has been placed in government and in science and our legal system will fail. The firstborn is considered to be the strength of a nation. Get ready for your strength to fail you if you do not have the blood of Jesus Christ on the doorpost of your heart. For through that blood the Holy Spirit will have access to come into His temple to instruct His people.

These things will be the sign of great deliverance for the church. To extract the humanism and Eastern philosophy that exists in the church. We must be filled with the obedience of a disciple. These are considered to be the friends of God.

Verses 37-38

The latter days will be marked by incredible restoration. This will transpire for the righteous in every arena of their lives. These blessings will include spiritual maturity, personal health as well as emotional strength. Furthermore, notable natural and spiritual resources will be delegated to this emerging army. The "fortunes of Israel," will be replenished in a multiplied fashion.

God's chosen people will now leave Egypt - the spirit of this world! There will be a separation in the coming season that is more notable than anything we have understood in recent years. This exodus will also incorporate the wealth of the wicked that has been stored up for the righteous. There will be a separation between those who have been sanctified in their spirit, soul, and body from spiritual corruption and those who sponsor it. Furthermore, the liberal mind-set will be glad of it, even as Egypt rejoiced at the departure of Israel.

Fear will be a great nemesis in the coming season. If we have not secured ourselves firmly in the faith of God, then we could be prone to be overcome by anxiety. People in the world will experience extreme pressure from the shaking that is now taking place and will escalate. Possessing peace in the midst of storms will be a great evangelistic tool. The lost will seek peace and those who carry it.

More natural and spiritual shaking is on the horizon. There is another El Niño being formed in the Pacific that will once again bring turbulent weather to this nation. In last years Shepherd's Rod (2004) there was an inverted 7 superimposed over this nation in one of the visions. This was to represent plans and devices of the adversary that are set against this nation. They are strategies of darkness that must be overcome.

Much of the disaster we have seen in this nation has been the result of this evil design. Many of the very places the Lord has identified for expressions of outpouring are the ones being smitten by storms, floods and earthquakes. In contrast, the Lord also revealed an upright "7" to indicate a work of completion done in the body of people prepared for notable anointing. This "7" began in the Gulf Coast region; the very place where four major storms struck this nation. It then went to the Northeast and made the turn across the northern part of the nation to Washington. We are watching carefully these regions.

Verses 39-41

A cleansing fire is being released in the Church. There is a greater manifestation of the Holy Spirit that forms a spiritual canopy and source of purification. See Isaiah 4:4-6.

There will be a release of strong spiritual meat coming in due season that will come on the wind of the Spirit. There is a present call to maturity that must be responded to. The hour has come and a fullness of time juncture in church and human history has arrived. We must become who we have been ordained to be at this crucial crossroad in God's blueprint. See Hebrews 5:13-14; Hebrews 6:1.

The quail for Israel was either a blessing or a curse depending upon the condition of the heart. The meat that is coming will strengthen some while choking others who have not cultivated a hearing ear and openness to the spirit of revelation.

Times of desperation and hardship will advance in this season; in them the "Joseph's" and "Daniel's" will shine most brilliantly. Each of these forerunners excelled in spiritual and governmental leadership during times of difficulty. Not because of any virtue of their own, but because of the spiritual endowments entrusted to them.

The Lord will be releasing spiritual water to dry and thirsty Christians and churches. The next season of the spirit will mark visitations from God in places that we least expect. A holy unrest has been imparted to a large segment of the church that has been unable to continue in former traditions. God will respond to their desire when it is presented in humility and honesty.

There are commissions and promises that were given to certain leaders and groups that have not yet been fulfilled. Some of these pledges go back to the early part of the century following the outpouring of Azusa Street. There will now be a recapturing of these promises and a return to former heritage.

Verses 42-45

God always honors His word. Former promises and bestowals of grace will be remembered and deposited into this generation. Abraham had been in Paradise for several centuries when the Lord remembered His divine promise to the patriarch. The Lord then began His search for the champion who would be the instrument of His fulfillment. In Moses, God found what He needed! If we, like Moses, possess meekness and obedience, we will likewise stand before the Lord as His representation on earth. See Psalm 138:2.

For the righteous there will be an abundance of blessings in the coming season. However, there must be proper stewardship. If we do not appropriate these blessings with a Kingdom standard, then we can likewise come under the justice of God and His discipline (Deuteronomy 28:47).

We are to ask for the nations as our inheritance. With the promise and pledge for our birthright, there comes provision for the promise. Our main directive in this quest is charity! All that we do should be from a posture of passion for the Lord and compassion for people. The Lord will remove our stony heart as He sprinkles clean water upon us. He will then give us a heart after His own. The new heart will possess a desire for the Kingdom and willingness to live according to His standard. See Ezekiel 36:25-27; Romans 13:9-10.

"Engaging the Revelatory Realm of Heaven"
by Paul Keith Davis
$12.00 Book

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the Great Ocean of Truth lay all undiscovered before me."
- Sir Isaac Newton

An ocean of divine truth is waiting to be discovered. An unprecedented display of God's power and authority are about to take place in the church. In this fascinating book, Paul Keith Davis reveals how those anointed with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation will see an awesome demonstration of God's glory in the coming days.

"God is about to raise the bar on revelatory ministry. Just as He did by making sure that none of Samuel's words went unfulfilled, an acceleration in the prophetic community is about to occur.

"Over the next several years, we will see a generation of 'throne room' prophets emerge. Their words will be more powerful than any that have been spoken in recent years. Their accuracy will be deadly. Today's prophetic community will be as small children who are like kindergarteners compared to the college-level expressions that will come. Their prophetic utterances will make the ears of the world tingle, just as Samuel's did. These throne-room prophets will receive their power through their intimacy with the majesty of God.

"In Engaging the Revelatory Realm of Heaven, Paul Keith Davis sheds light about this new level of revelatory ministry that will be built on intimacy with a majestic picture of God's throne. His book describes the great call on those who long to engage with the revelatory realm of Heaven. Their words, forged in the throne room of God, will cause the ears of many to tingle. Tingling ears will lead to pricked consciences, which will lead to penitent hearts. And penitent hearts will lead to a renewed world.

"May God's face shine on you as you read Engaging the Revelatory Realm of Heaven by my friend, Paul Keith Davis. I pray that it will call you into a great life of intimacy, service, kindness, and friendship with God."
- John Paul Jackson, Streams Ministries

"The Thrones of Our Soul"
by Paul Keith Davis
$12.00 Book

"We are pleased to announce that the book the Lord commissioned us to write is now complete and available. We sincerely pray the Lord will use it to open fresh dimensions of His Presence and power to the hungry and desperate believer. He promised to satisfy those who hunger and thirst for righteousness and intimacy with Him. As important as winning the lost and healing the sick clearly is, there is an even greater mandate being imparted to this generation. That is to know Him as intimately and personally as He may be known and live in that place of fellowship. How can we fully be His representation on the earth if we are not intimately acquainted with Him and His heart for our generation?" -Paul Keith Davis

"The contents of this book contain open revelations from God Himself. It is much more than a glimpse into the secret places, it is also a full view on how to become an 'overcomer.' You will find within the pages of this book why Paul Keith walks in 'Christ likeness.' I have been stirred by his life and now I am stirred by his book." -Joseph Schuchert

"The Shepherd's Rod 2004"
by Paul Keith Davis & Bob Jones
$5.00 Book
The term "Shepherd's Rod" comes from Ezekiel 20:37 stating, "And I shall make you pass under the rod, and I shall bring you into the bond of the covenant." This Scripture symbolically portrays a shepherd extending his rod as the sheep pass under his staff for evaluation. In this same way we, as the Lord's sheep, pass under His staff during this season as further described in Jeremiah 33:13 and Leviticus 27:32.

The purpose of this booklet is to simply outline the revelations that were received on that date in order to Biblically convey the revelation to the believer. It is not the intent of this outline to completely cover all the truth associated with these revelations. It would take a large book to adequately elaborate on and communicate all of the Biblical truth realized through these revelations.

It is our prayer that the believer will study these revelations during the course of this year to extract all the understanding the Spirit of Truth will reveal. Much of the truth given in the Shepherd's Rod is like seed that, once planted, requires time to develop and mature. These revelations apply to the year that it is given and the years that follow as each revelation provides greater clarity and focus for the Lord's heart for this generation.
