“ANALOGY: CASCADIA & SPINAL COLUMN” - 2009-08-26
Darrell Dahlman and Jerry Thurston asked if I would come August 20-21 to their area. Purpose: to fill in fuller details on Samuel's 4 cities of 1 Samuel 7:15-17, and their spiritual relationship to the 4 major cities of Cascadia. This relationship came to me in the Spirit as a revelation in 1967. I shared it in 1980 in Israel. I saw the 3 Western Cascadia cities as a bow, with the string drawn back to Spokane, and God shooting arrows to the Pacific Rim cities and nations. This is also a volcanic area. I also saw the 5-fold adjusting ministries of Ephesians 4:11-12 as an Eldership in the gate of each city, functioning as the 5 in Acts 13:1-3, and the the Eldership and Apostles in Acts 15 that ruled on the Judaizing controversy. When these 4 cities move in this dimension, then God will pour His fire upon Cascadia, which will travel like wild-fire across Canada and the US, leaping the Atlantic, and bringing its message to Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the Islands of the Sea. Then God will return His Son as Lord of lords and King of kings.
It is interesting to note that just as Spokane serves as the city to which the string of the bow is drawn back before releasing God's arrows to Pacific Rim cities and nations, so Spokane representing the sacral area of the spine, enables a man to walk!
Each of the 4 cities of Cascadia is unique. Each needs it own respective and functioning Eldership in its Gate. When unity and effectiveness operates in each, and the whole Pacific Northwest moves in its integral unity, then the above effects will take place.
The Elderships in the Gates of each city will become like an organic automatic Laser-Telescope in the hands of the Lord. He will point it at Satanic targets over cities, regions, States and Provinces, and nations. He will activatesmall groups of 8 in a spiritual star wars effect, eliminating His enemies over His people as He did with the Philistines against Israel. Then David needed but to go in and mop up. Then we in these cities and cooperating local churches, will but need to go in and mop upagainst spiritual Philistines.
Beware of individuals or even single local churches moving in such spiritual warfare unilaterally. The Lord reserves this right for Himself through His appointed Eldership in the Gates of such cities. It would seem that some 90 representatives of these 4 key Cascadia Cities took definite steps forward in God in this conference to achieve His goal on their behalf.
I personally believe that the recent book by Russ & Bonnie Snyder, “Are These the Missing Pieces,” (To Sustaining a Move of God) - and “Dreams: The Divinity Code” - The Keys to Decoding Your Dreams & Visions - by Adrian Beale & Adam F. Thompson - are keys indeed to help safeguard and direct us in this path. See <www.rusbonresources.com> and <www.thedivinitycode.org> - Both books can be purchased through the former.
BILL WALTZ & OUR SPINAL COLUMN
4:00 AM - Friday August 21, Portland/Vancouver WA Metroplex. The Word of the Lord came to me in a new way, relating the 4 cities of Samuel and the 4 cities of Cascadia to the 4 segments of the Spinal column of 33 vertebrae. In 1965 Bill Waltz presented this insight to us at Broadway Tabernacle of Seattle. He pointed out that just as the human body has 33 vertebrae, so Jesus Christ lived on earth as Son of Man for 33 years. He directs His spiritual body of the One New Man through the Spinal cord, which is protected by the 4 sections of the Spinal Column. The first section, the 7 Cervical Vertebrae, attach the body to the Head! Ephesians 4:4-6 lay out the 7 Unities: one Body; one Spirit; one Hope; one Lord; one Faith; one Baptism; one Father of all. These 7 unities tend to bypass doctrinal divisiveness in denominations and fellowships. They foster unity between various local, denominational and city churches. Thank God for His wisdom in presenting these 7 by His Spirit through the apostle Paul. Samuel's city of Mizpeh was among the 4 he judged Israel, and is one of several cities by this name in the land. However, the one in Gilead is about 40 miles from Jerusalem on the East of Jordan, where the 2 ½ Eastern tribes could come to be judged in their own territory, just as 3 of the 6 Cities of Refuge were East of Jordan. I see the influence of this city reaching down to Redding, Sacramento, Placerville and North of San Francisco. It was at Mizpeh that Jacob and Laban made a covenant of mutual peace. Pray for Portland/Vancouver, that they may go to their Watch Tower, and like Habakkuk receive God's Vision
Then we find the 12 Thoracic Vertebrae, to which are attached our 12 ribs, protecting the Heart and Circulatory System, and the Lungs and Respiratory System. It was during the 1948 Visitation in Northern Canada that the 12 Embryonic Revival Principles came together. They are indeed just as important to Christ's spiritual body, as they are to our human bodies. As we ponder and meditate upon this relationship, God can speak to us in confirmation.
Link this with Ramah, which Samuel made as his headquarters. Here he was born - here he died. It means “high place” and is located in Ephraim, about 30 miles SW of Jerusalem. It is called Arimathea in the NT. Seattle is built upon 7 hills, and moves with Tacoma.
But the 5 Lumbar Vertebrae give lifting power to the whole body. Without these, we would indeed be in bad shape. They are linked with the 5 equipping or adjusting ministries of Ephesians 4:11-12. It was in Northern Canada in 1948 that this truth was restored, and in Vancouver, BC, will be brought to maturity, and function for the good of the other 3 cities of Cascadia. Bethel was in Ephraim, about 12 miles north of Jerusalem, and means “House of God” in Hebrew. It was here that Jacob had the vision of angels ascending and descending on the stairway to heaven, and it was to Nathanael that Jesus gave the promise that he would see angels ascending and descending upon the head of the Son of Man (John 1:47-51). After Jacob returned to Bethel 20 years after departing, he fulfilled his promise by tithing to God from the abundance of His blessing.
The 9 Sacral vertebrae are linked with Gilgal, “rolling”, where God rolled away the reproach of Israel in Egypt, by having Joshua lead in circumcising the new generation of 600,000 fighting men, and thus bringing them into true covenant relationship with God prior to the conquest of the 7 nations of Canaan. Link Gilgal with Spokane, for here too Covenant will be re-established. These 9 vertebrae represent the 9-fold fruit of the Spirit,
(Galatians 5:22-23), and the 9-fold gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-11). One who is associated with equipment for chiropractors, pointed out that the human body only walks because of these 9 vertebrae.
Pray for the unique individual role for the leaders of these 4 cities. Then pray that just as Jesus as Head of His church can only effectively operate His body when each of the 4 sections of the 33 vertebrae are perfectly adjusted together, so the maturing 5-fold adjusting ministries may operate to give spiritual chiropractic adjustments to this end.
Note: In Embryonic status on February 11, 1948 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, this concept began to be restored. Now 60 years later God has promised that He is about to activate these concepts, bring them into maturity, and prepare a body for His Son that will set in motion the last great Visitation prior to His Son's return.
CASCADIA AND PROTOCOL
Thursday evening August 20 in Vancouver WA, Jerry Chatham set in motion the Protocol of the First Nations People to welcome on their land this conference of the 4 cities of Cascadia. Jerry received the authority from a tribe of his people to extend their welcome of Protocol. 14 years before on July 1, 1995, Freda Cooper of the Coast Salish did the same for delegates of 39 nations at Whistler, BC.
To signify this welcome according to Protocol, Jerry presented to me as the Key Note speaker at this Conference, with a native crafted necklace of beads and a tooth, plus a book - “Dancing Our Prayers” by Richard Twiss, which I am carefully reading. www.wiconi.com
My wife Marie is French Canadian with roots in Manitoba through the Chartrands and Lacerts. But inasmuch as there were no white women there for a number of generations, the greater number are Metis, joined with Cree and Lake Winnipeg Saulteaux. The First Nations People of the largest Reservation in Canada at Hobbema, South of Wetaskiwin, honored me in 1987 through a peace-making decision through Nick Adams, an honorary chieftain. He approached the leaders of their 5 nations at my request to have 4 white men come and apologize and ask forgiveness for the death of an Indian in 1977 in an altercation where drinking was taking place with whites 10 years previous. Because of their high regard for Nick and his integrity, they said it was unnecessary for the 4 whites to come. They accepted the apology by faith. “However,” they said, “perhaps sometime in the future we will have Jim Watt as their leader come and meet with us. Any man with enough wisdom to marry into Metis blood is a worthy man, and it is possible we would someday meet with him.” As a result the weather and climate pattern so changed in Northern Alberta, that meteorologists across Canada wondered about the explanation of the cessation of excessive rainfall springtime and harvest for the previous 10 years.
Then to my surprise, quite recently my brother from Ontario was meeting with relatives of our mother in Nova Scotia north of Halifax. Quite by chance, one mentioned that one of our Moser forebears married a Micmac, making us Metis also. My brother remonstrated with her as to the improbability of this. She responded, “George, just go and look at yourself in a mirror!” Of course, this was a surprise to me when I learned of it - but just as I was proud to learn that my wife Marie was Metis - so I was proud to learn of my similar background.
It is my profound conviction that apart from the North American First Nations People having an integral part in the Restoration of God's purpose in Canada, the US and the rest of the world, we will not attain unto the fullness of God'[s purposes in this last day move of God preceding the return of His Son. I received from God in 1992 a mandate to take the 12 Embryonic Revival Principles of 1948 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, and with others pray to bring them into maturity. “They,” God said, “will be parameters of safety for the last great Visitation prior to the soon return of Jesus Christ as Lord of lords and King of kings.”
The 11 tribes of Israel in the book of Judges mourned when Benjamin, under judgment, was reduced to but 600 men - and arranged for 600 virgins to be given them as wives to start up the tribe again. (For they knew all 12 tribes had to be functioning in unity for God's purposes to be fulfilled.) So we today need the First Nations People as representing the Israeli tribe of Asher - to function today in unity and harmony with the other 11, if God's purposes are to be realized preceding the return of His Son. Asher is represented by the wisdom of the donkey, considered of great value in the Middle East. See the book of Job. Jesus on Palm Sunday rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. Faithfulness, discernment and obedience are the key marks of Asher, and also of the First Nations People. Several of their people have confirmed this to me. Also, the name of Asher on Aaron's Breastplate of Judgment is inscribed on the beautiful yellow Topaz stone, the symbol or emblem of Wisdom.
(Had this not been done, 14 of the 27 NT books written by Paul a Benjamite, would have been missing!)
It is for these insights of the above that I appreciated the welcome to the land according to Protocol - extended to me as a representative of our Gathering Thursday August 20 in Vancouver WA, as their representative. It was indeed parallel to Whistler BC 14 years before in 1995, when Freda Cooper, granddaughter of the great chieftain of the Coast Salish tribe of that area - according to Protocol, welcomed us to that land for that unique conference of 2200.
So it is important for us to understand the significance of these 2 events, as illustrating God's thinking in this area. In the light of this we can see the significance of SeaTac, representing Samuel's Ramah and the 12 tribes of Israel according to the 12 Thoracic Vertebrae of the human spinal column. Jesus did die for our sins and return to heaven as Son of Man at the age of 33. All 12 vertebrae must be in place with the 12 ribs attached, to protect the heart, the circulatory center; and the lungs - the respiratory center - for our human body to function according to the wisdom and purpose of God. It was a Russian lady who received the vision of God's purpose for Seattle (she pronounced it SEEtul), God's “Ramah”, as being centrally significant for His last day Visitation prior to the return of His Son! And - He has placed the First Nations People as one of His 12 integral Revival Principles for this event.
Just as God restored Israel the people to her land in 1948, with her language also - so He is restoring His 12-fold “One New Man” to a mature, functioning church of Jew and Gentile serving as one. And - His First Nations People” like Benjamin, have a 1/12th integral place of necessity for the fullness of His purposes.
I personally find it interesting to note that though I am American born (Arkansas), yet it is by Canadian parents: my father from Ontario, descendant of James Watt from Greenock, Scotland of steam-engine fame, and my mother from Nova Scotia, a Mosher, with a change of name from Moser. One third of the Mosers of Halifax, former Huguenots from Europe who fled persecution to the New World, openly acknowledge themselves as Jews. The other 2/3rds quite possibly are also, but because of Jewish persecution and things like the Holocaust, prefer not to make their origins known. When my wife Marie and I were in Poland for the “March of the Living” in the early 2000's, we visited Prague of the Czech Republic also. I went to the 2nd floor of a Jewish Museum there which once was a Sephardic Temple. But because of Hitler and the Holocaust, but a score or so of Jews were left from tens of thousands. I found Jewish Moser Glass Works recorded in this museum from past days, and many other Moser connections. This confirms what a Jewish rabbi informed me about all the Mosers (or Moshers) of Halifax.
So - not only could I have Metis blood along with my wife Marie - but I may be even ¼ Jewish, enough to have sent me to the gas chambers in Hitler's days.
CASCADIA & MY CONNECTION
I also have a close connection with the 4 cities of Cascadia. My mother followed my father from Texas in 1927: first to Portland, where we stayed a while with a Mrs. Gorton. Then we came to Vancouver BC when I was 4, and stayed with my grandparents on my father's side temporarily at 1109 Barclay Street, just west of Burrard. We moved 20 times before I was 10, as my father was not only a steam and electrical operating chief engineer of power plants, but also was engaged in repairs following serious breakdowns; plus the construction of new power houses. His last power house construction job was for the University of Washington in 1929.
In 1963 I spent some 6 months in the Portland/Vancouver WA ministering in various churches and conferences concerning the 12 Embryonic Revival Principles of the 1948 Canadian Visitation. I did the same in the Spokane area for some 3 months; and even more in the Seattle/Tacoma and Vancouver/Victoria BC area.
When God sovereignly revealed Himself to me according to His promises at Passover 1944, 9 months after I had joined the Canadian Navy, I asked Him, “Why?” He responded, “Because I am going to restore My church in the latter days with Apostles and Prophets, and if you are faithful, you may have part in this.” 18 years later in Round Lake, Illinois where I was pastoring a Baptist church, He said, “You have been faithful these past 18 years. Resign your church here and move to the Pacific Northwest. There I am laying down roots of restoration which will bring to pass my last day purposes. There you may have part in them.” In 1945 He had sovereignly led me out of the Navy at the close of World War II, and and directed me to George Hawtin of Bethel Bible Institute, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; through whom 3 years later in North Battleford, 90 miles NW of Saskatoon on February 11, the 12 Embryonic Revival Principles came together, which now in Cascadia He would begin to bring to maturity. I am Presbyterian in my first roots. Here God is His Sovereignty is well known. Into this I was born. Then in 1925 the Presbyterians with the Methodists and Congregationalists united to form the United Church of Canada. When my parents returned to Canada in 1927, it was here that I attended. In 1942 God called me into the Navy to reveal Himself to me, and for a time I first attended a Baptist Church, and then a Pentecostal church. Then I took part in the Latter Rain Revival visitation, and afterwards back into a Baptist Fellowship. Much later He had Marie and me lead a Messianic Jewish Congregation for 10 years, till they could find a Messianic Jewish Rabbi. It was from this at the age of 84 we retired. Retired? We have never been so busy!
I am sorry that this report is somewhat skipping around historically speaking. But what happened August 20-21 this year in Vancouver WA/Portland, can only really be understood in the context of God's dealings and leadings with me throughout my life time. And really, 86 years for Marie and me is not that much in the light of some of our older friends. So - keep in mind, that the relationship of the 4 key cities of Cascadia to the 4 segments of the spinal column is the key to grasp. - J.A.W.
ADDENDUM: The above message I gave Friday morning in Vancouver WA. It was recorded and the CD is available through Shiloh Fellowship, <email@example.com> . Shiloh asked me to stay over for Saturday service at 6 PM and Sunday at 10 AM. At the former I spoke on “Meditation”the key to the outstanding ministry of George Muller, who received faith through this revelation to meet every need of 10,000 orphans through 50,000 distinct answers to prayer - without ever asking a single human being for one penny - besides many other challenging projects. This is also available at Shiloh on CD.
On Sunday morning I spoke on “Clan & Household Salvation”. My wife Marie and I have seen over 3000 come to the Lord through the latter before we stopped counting. For Clan Salvation, initiated through Jack Hayford's father in Oakland CA, only eternity will reveal the results. That message also is available on a CD from Shiloh.
