In part three of this series we spoke of the gnat as the plague that impacted the people of Egypt, making the comparison to the prophetic word that has been spoken by Prophet Kim Clement who said he saw a series of 10 battles that the United States and Israel would face as a result of a betrayal in the White House. One thing that I did not mention in part three was that it was the first plague that God empowered Moses and his brother Aaron to release upon the people of Egypt that could not be replicated by the Pharaoh’s magicians (see Exodus 8:18). In part four of this series, let us consider what the fourth battle that might have to be faced, as it relates to the plagues of Egypt.
Knowing that the plagues of Egypt were a judgment against those who opposed and oppressed God’s people, we see that the fourth plague was one that was unique in that it too presented a first. It was the first plague that put a distinction between Egypt and Israel (see Exodus 8:23). The fourth plague that was released was the plague of flies. In the natural, we know the fly to be a household pest that carries all manner of disease, are associated with poor sanitation and are a threat to health. For ancient people and especially ancient Egypt, they worshiped Uachit the god of flies or “the Lord of the Flies” because of their fear of them and their destructive nature. The thought was that this god would keep flies away. Beelzebub is another name or spirit that is associated with the god of flies.
There is an interesting side note to make about the “Lord of the Flies” as it has been reported by several news outlets, bloggers and YouTube video showing that Obama has been declared the Lord of the Flies because in several press conferences he can visibly be seen swatting at flies that get in his face. Even more, Senator Ted Cruz even stated that the last 15 months under President Obama’s leadership would look like “Lord of the Flies”. For those who may be unfamiliar with the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, it tells the tale of a group of boys who find themselves stranded on an uncharted island. The novelty of having the ultimate freedom soon wears off as the boys give in to the savage primal instincts of human nature as the order that some want gives way to anarchy.
None of this is to say that I believe him to be demonic or the antichrist but I found it quite interesting that in Prophet Kim’s initial vision of the betrayal in the White House, he saw something significant and perhaps some connection to what was going on at that time during his presidency. Nevertheless, I am more inclined to believe that the betrayal and the battles to be faced are more relevant to what is happening now or about to happen, although there may have been a setup to it all during that time.
From a spiritual point of view, this separation and distinction that was placed in between Egypt and the people of Israel was not just a judgment upon the people of Egypt for their worship of idols and false gods, but to show everyone who truly is God and who He is for. How we might see this play out today in light of the prophetic word that has been spoken by Prophet Kim Clement is through a distinction that is about to be made once again to show the world who is truly God’s chosen and anointed people. It’s not just the people of Israel, who are still God’s chosen, but also the Church, whom those who have come in agreement that there should be unity and cooperation between the Israel and the Church as they become “one new man (see Ephesians 2:15)”.
There is even going to be a greater distinction between God’s true church and those who just have an appearance of being the church on the surface. For a number of years, Lance Wallnau has been speaking of the separation or distinction that will be made between sheep nations and goat nations. In Matthew 25, Jesus speaks of a day when he will come in all of his glory with the angels and separate the sheep from the goats, placing the sheep on his right and the goats on his left (see Matthew 25:31-46).
In the realm of kingdoms, it is the right side upon which we find favor. This is seen in this passage of scripture as we see that Jesus tells of how God will say that those who are on the right side were the ones who did all that honored God; gave water to the thirsty, fed the hungry, clothed the naked, took care of the sick, visited the imprisoned. Paul goes further in 2 Timothy 3 as he reveals to Timothy the great distinction that would be seen in the church (See 2 Timothy 3:1-5). I believe wholeheartedly that this distinction is about to become more clear as we see true followers of God reveal their alignment with the will of God for this season, even as scripture says that you will know who is his disciples by the love that is shown.
As this distinction becomes more evident, those who have taken the side that is in opposition to God will, you will begin to see many succumb to the influence of spiritual forces that stink and are foul and breed things that should not be seen among God’s people. In this, you will begin to know who is truly His and who is not. It will become apparent as it spills over into many areas of society. In as much as flies are attracted to decaying things, those who are not for God and His will and way, you will see those people drawn into situations and things that have no redemptive value. They will be drawn to things that are non-productive and dying, not with the desire to resurrect it but to revel in the vileness.
Something that Doug Addison has shared as it relates to flies, is that from a spiritual aspect, the fly represents a spiritual “demon that seems so insignificant that most don’t recognize it when it is present.” He goes on to say that Christians “may not even know that they have a sin that attracts this kind of demon” stating further that it shows up in things like “gossip, unforgiveness, pride, unbelief, and self-promotion.” Doug concludes that the Christian that is caught by this demon will find that the anointing that they are meant to operate in is often tapped off and drained by this spirit.
So what is the call to those who are hearing the word of the prophets? The first thing that must take place among those who would be numbered as part of God’s true people and sheep nation is to have a heart of repentance if there is recognition that there is a lack of connectivity to God and His will.
Next, is to develop a heart that is in pursuit of God. As the heart is developed, it will cause greater compassion for those things that are His true concerns for this time and season. It will also create the processes that will sharpen the ears and eyes to recognize truth and to pull off the veil from the eyes and soften the heart to release the love God wants to go forth at this time. It will help in renewing the mind to receive and implement the necessary strategies that will reform and reclaim the mountains of culture that have been lost.
A third thing that may be required is a spirit of Joshua and Caleb that is positive and bold enough to believe and agree with God and what He has already said that His people are well able and capable of doing in this season. If you agree with Jesus when he said greater things will you do, walk in it. If you believe that now is the time to restore glory to the seven mountains, find your place upon the mountain(s) that God has sent you and shine. If you believe that it is your place to love unconditionally and be salt and light in your community, be salt and light. Hear the prophet and draw near to God. As the distinction is drawn between His people and those who are not, it will become even a greater opportunity to be sharpened for the harvest.
QUESTION: How have you already seen signs of the battle of distinctions showing up? What do you think your part is in ensuring that you are on the right side so that you are bringing glory to God and walking in God’s favor and blessing?
