Tajikistan is the region of an ancient Persian empire, and prophet Daniel fought a battle for this kingdom. After Nebuchadnezzar’s “golden head” there was the “silver breast” of the Medo-Persian kingdom and prophet Daniel fought a battle with the prince of Persia in the spirit. The prince of Persia stood against Gabriel for twenty-one days, it was a very high rank of the angelic demonic world, perhaps connected with the
The hierarchy of the spiritual world is quite multi-levelled – it includes principalities, powers, authorities, dominions and thrones. The Prince of Persia was at a very high level. Gabriel fought him and could not get through until Michael, one of the great princes, came and helped him. Then Gabriel still came back to fight the prince of Greece. The next kingdom was the “brass torso” of the Greek kingdom, which was represented by Alexander the Great and his followers later.
In fact, all these periods of human civilization constituted mighty empires. They left a powerful cultural legacy, including religious layers. Greek mythology is still very popular today, it has left its, if said spiritually, “defecation marks” on the human culture. Today we still carry the consequences of these battles, the ruins.
Tajikistan is a Farsi-speaking people. This battle is still being fought. I don’t know what the Prince of Persia is literally doing right now. Whether he is tied up, wounded, but one thing I do know is that he is alive and continuing to be active with his certain amount of troops from the kingdom of Lucifer to continue to hold the Farsi-speaking world captive.
We are fighting a battle here, not just telling tales, this is the reality. The people who are involved in this battle can’t escape touching these ranks, each of them at his own level, according to the measure of grace, according to the measure of faith and purpose that the Lord has given. I feel and believe that we can have a very serious and great impact on these demonic forces of the devil’s hierarchy.
While in these combat quests I watch how signs and wonders accompany us, but we don’t pursue these things, and even don’t focus on them. To speak frankly, I may be expecting an experience when nothing happens. That is normal for me, because the goal of my search, what I do pursue and hunt in the spirit is intimacy. I want to experience Christ in new lands, and He always comes new ways in new lands – that is the greatest treasure. And what accompanies us is just a consequence produceв by this intimacy. This intimacy is the cause for the signs and wonders that may accompany a man of God, but they are in no way a goal.
This is why no sign shall be given to this generation except the sign of the prophet Jonah. The Lord didn’t play with signs and wonders, didn’t please people to provide and demonstrate miracles. And the sign of the prophet Jonah is called «Wait till I die and resurrect» instead of Him giving a portion of miracles.
And this sign is the major sign. It is enough to walk with God powerfully. Am sharing this honestly with you that I am in no search of these signs and wonders, but the greatest value that I hunt is intimacy with Christ.
I see a red hot wheel like burning coal, it was full of the eyes and moved like a whirlwind from one end of the earth to another bringing splits in some places and joining in the other. It was like judgments – because different cataclysms happened, and many were really terrified by this, but others were encouraged.
This is exactly what we experience. This is done by the wheel, this is the Cherubim level of ministry, where I believe Cherubim are involved.
Thrones, dominions, principalities and powers have to be touched by God. And the sons of man who walk with Him are to take part in this action. You remember those men clothed with linen or with the writer’s inkhorn, which are spoken of in the Bible not as of Angels, but as of men – they did Angelic work, that is, they were straightly connected with Angels and spoke with the Angels directly, with no mediators. It is neither written those are Angels, nor it is written those are men. They are the ones who entered in between the wheels, who took or were given the coals from under the wings of Cherubim, – this is not even that important; but I believe that there are people walking so strongly in the heavenly that they do Angelic work.
Elijah was such a man – he was literally taken on the chariot of fire being an absolute man, he wasn’t an Angel. He was human and in his body he transited into heaven on the chariot of fire, horses of fire carried him away. Can you imagine such a thing? This is no fairy-tale, this is the reality of a man of God walking in the heavenly. Sometimes he was taken by the whirlwind. With some people we may not notice that we are taken. We try to make s logical end of the rope, but the Lord actually takes and doesn’t reveal it to us that He did it.
Every day there happens a miracle of a night dream: we leave not to relax, but every day we come in a miracle. Night dream of a man is a miracle as well. Altogether, we abide in miracles much more than we can imagine. If we begin to understand about supernatural things of God, we will see that there is much more of the supernatural than we can notice. Therefore, I encourage us to live with our eyes open, and as Christ said, «He who has an ear let him hear». Let us have this ear, so that we may hear what God is doing. And see with our eyes, as Paul says, «that He may open the eyes of our heart, so that we may understand.
We spoke here with a brother who went through the civil war period, and they don’t usually speak of it here, as it brought a lot of pain. The brother shared how they made videos of the atrocities made to people in that war – so horrible you don’t want to speak of it not to traumatize our imagination. He was inside all of it, dead bodies were collected with tractors, and it was in the capital city of Tajikistan.
What I want to interpret that it was a transitional generation – the generation that saw all the horrors of war, watch the country being broken and washed with blood; how the transition was made from what had accumulated for many years to what was poured out as blood. Today the country is at peace on the outside.
But in reality this is Solomon generation. The people who saw the horrors of was with their eyes are a transitional generation, which have transited from David to Solomon.
There were Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, and also the Cherethites and the Pelethites – who had Solomon ride on King David’s mule and took him to Gihon. (1Kings 1:38)
So King David had his mule – this is a very interesting character. David rode on this mule. It was personal mule of the King, and no one dared to ride on this mule, because it was King David’s personal mule. But these people:
Zadok the priest, who was namely David’s priest, most faithful man of David. (In Ezekiel the priests of Zadok are described as generation of the faithful priests)
Nathan the prophet – David had a complete set of the Kingdom, he had both priests and ministers, a priest and prophet Nathan, a most faithful man of God.
And Benaiah – those were literally warriors, most faithful officers of his army, who could easily give their lives for David.
The Cherethites and the Pelethites are the people who were subdued by David.
They had Solomon ride on King David’s mule. Today I declare this mule, that transited and didn’t shake him off, didn’t resist when he felt a stranger sit on his body. This mule, with all his back and heart and soul, recognised that the power had been passed and now he was to carry a different king! This is amazing! I feel this Word today is for Tajikistan, that from the last season, where we carried certain things on ourselves today we could take the new king.
This mule, who knew only David – servants could feed him, but only David could sit on him – I think even whoever dared to sit on the back of this mule could be executed. He was the only one with David.
And when Solomon approached, those who were there: Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, Benaiah, the army general and the faithful Cherethites and Pelethites – they had Solomon ride on the mule. They didn’t have him sit on a chair, on the throne, but had him ride the mule!
I don’t think this is widely spread in the Jewish culture, but this is prophetic culture, which goes higher than Jewish. I don’t think they crown kings on mules now. But Solomon was. It was a living throne – the mule of the king. This is the way the anointing is imparted. And I recommend to do impartation not on chairs, but on mules.
The impartation of power and of the anointing on a living creature! This also symbolises the Angelic world that was imparted from David to Solomon. I think that Angels of David transited to Solomon.
And those beings, thrones, dominions, principalities, that were with the king all the time, and a priest out of the human realm, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the general, and the Cherethites and Pelethites who seemed sort of distant and unclean, but were subdued – they were to come to the new king and totally trust and pledge faithfulness to Solomon.
I admire this Beauty, because I love kingdom and I love the Kingdom of God! I change my office chair for the mule! So sit on your chairs no more, those reigning and ruling in the anointing, transit to these dangerous creatures. Dangerous, because if he feels this is no king riding on him, he will cast you down and add with his leg.
«Then Zadok the priest took a horn of oil from the tabernacle and anointed Solomon». I believe that this horn of oil might be the one that transited from Samuel, perhaps he poured on David’s head from it. «And they blew the horn, and all the people said, «Long live King Solomon!»…And Benaiah went and struck Joab, the ex-commander, who was not faithful to David. Solomon began to cleanse… Benaiah versus Joab, Benaiah instead of Joab. Today, let young Benaiahs arise and replace Joabs, who served half-faithful, who would poison with their unfaithfulness, who had certain good things they did to David, but Joab poisoned, unfaithfulness creeped out of him. When only David got weak he ran to David’s enemy to crown a different king. But he suffered for that.
And Benaiah, God’s warrior, David’s warrior, who transited to Solomon, which was legitimate – with his hands he put Joab to death as the latter held to the horns of the altar, he was able to do that – he struck the old man, his former commander, who boasted only of his past and was unfaithful.
«The king put Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada in his place over the army, and the king put Zadok the priest in the place of Abiathar» (1Kings 2:35) The king replaced people of authority.
Today changes are happening and we ought to prepare the new generation. What is most important that there was no problem between Solomon and David – Solomon rode on David’s mule.
You, Deborahs and Miriams, sing these events, dance and rejoice around them. I think prophets sang over these events, and prophetic women danced with their tambourines when those events happened.
This prophetic culture is needed today in the church of the latter days and adorn our lives with this bliss and gladness of the prophetic ministry.
The Lord manifests today with His different facets, which become relevant at different times – this is exactly what the Lord means when He says, «I will not treat the remnant of this people as in the former days». It doesn’t mean He receives a new quality or His character changes. It means that a certain face of the Lord’s unchangeable nature begins to manifest as relevant for the season. For example, in times of war God manifests as the God of war – for the people of mountains He works as the God of the valleys, and for the people of the valleys He acts as the God of mountains. The God of peace fills our hearts with God’s peace, but the God of war – He is also our God – gives us victory in war.
Therefore, I want to speak on one of God’s facets as of God of the planet. I want to especially bless you that we may look at the God of the planet and at the God of our prayer houses and our cities. Watch what is happening on the planet, what God is doing on the planet, because when Christ returns, He will come on the planetary level. He says «from the West to the East, from the North to the South», He speaks of the continents, islands, nations – this is the extension of our understanding of God.
Abraham had this ability – we see this when he met Melchizedek, he recognised the Kingdom in him and gave him the tenth of all he had, in order to show his submission to this King of Salim.
Nahum 1:2-4 «God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; the Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies».
Do not think that after Christ had been crucified God changed. Don’t stay in the kindergarten of heresy. God never changes. What some places in the Old Testament speak of Him – that is the very God who rules the Universe. Christ brought us the way of Redemption, that this God may give us mercy and healing.
«The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not acquit the wicked. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet». We see this Scripture unfolding these days here in Central Asia – we watch His way here in Asia namely in the whirlwind and storm. «The clouds are the dust of His feet» – dust means He is off on His way with us, it means He is moving here. Prophets are supposed to understand this is no accident or natural disaster – this is the movement of the Lord, shifts in the spiritual realm, in order to bring the fulfilment of the prophecies.
Joel 2: 1-2 «Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the Lord is coming; for it is at hand: a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness». – This is what we see here in Asia.
Habakkuk 2:13-14 «Behold, is is not of the Lord of hosts that the peoples labor to feed the fire, and nations weary themselves in vain? For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the see».
One day the knowledge of the Lord will fill the earth. This won’t happen through conferences and full stadiums, this won’t come through outreach with booklets etc. This shall come through the judgments. Judgments shall be inevitable. They are called the judgments of purging. God shall purge before He fills the earth with His glory. This is normal for those who stand with Him in His army, on HIs side.
And we do participate in the judgments. I am a man who participates in God’s judgments. I have been in this for quite a long time, in human terms. And more and more I understand that I am His weapon, participating in His judgments.
Before the Lord pours out His glory He will purge the vessels for it.
And those vessels are the nations of the earth.
