       "It is a righteous thing for Me to recompense tribulation towards them that trouble you. And these who have taken their hand from the plow & turned back shall be visited with much trouble.  I abhor him who speaketh lies & blasphemes against My name--those who turn back are they that I abhor. These are the ones whom I shall spew out of My mouth. These who have raised their hands against My children shall be visited with much trouble, much sickness & much pain for what they have brought upon My children.
       "But these, My little ones, shall go on to greater victories. For the children of David, the children of the King, shall dance & play & shout & sing. For they are free, & these little ones shall be free--free to be raised & nurtured in the admonition of My Word, free to be raised as the disciples who I have called them to be. For this nation doth fill her cup of iniquity to the full! They are heaping coals upon their own heads & their judgement is soon to come. But My children shall go on, go on to greater victories, they shall continue to witness & speak My Truth.
       "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. Lamb & her little ones are in My hand, & I shall lead & guide them and all those with them. I shall lead them through this path, which may seem dark at times, but I am there with them to be a light unto them to guide them in the way that they should go, to strengthen them & to lift up any hands that hang down. But they need not hang down, they need not be discouraged, for there shall be a victory! And men will know that ye have called upon My name & ye have fought this battle in My name & ye have won this battle for My name, & I shall be glorified."

       I had a vision of Pearl. She was holding the baby. She was dressed in a gown & was walking through a room. It almost looked like she was in church. But then I could see on each side that the enemies were trying to reach out & grab her & gnash on her, & as she walked through the room, she was actually going up to where the judge was sitting. The Lord was standing behind the judge. As she approached him, her enemies were slain, & they all fell down, & the Lord spoke. It was as if He was speaking through the judge. The judge reached out his hands & said, "You're free!"

       "Surely it is a righteous thing for the Lord to recompense judgement upon those who judge thee.  For scarcely for a righteous man, will I turn My eyes away, but how much more for thee, for thee of the household of faith, will I rise up & fight against those who fight thee.  For I the Lord thy God am a righteous judge, & yea, I judge judges & I judge nations.  
       "For they see these things as `just another case,' but it involves you, My children.  Yea, they hang in the balances.  For I the Lord thy God set up one & put down another, & every nation that forgetteth Me shall be turned into Hell.  
       "Fear not, look neither to the right nor to the left, but look forward.  Proceed with Me, for I have a plan & thou shalt be wonderfully vindicated if thou wilt listen closely.  For this case is not unto death, but unto the righteous, & thou shalt be vindicated.  For the Lord is not a liar or One Who should forget His Own, for yea, I would be worse than an infidel, but I am thy faithful Father Who shall be with thee unto death & beyond.  Shall I not take care of this?"

       With David & Goliath, David went out full of faith to meet Goliath. He said, "How dare that uncircumcised Philistine come against us?"

       "Hitherto ye have asked nothing in My name, ask & ye shall receive that your joy may be full. If God be for us, who can be against us?"
       I saw the front cover of the Letter, "Fighters," where the Lord was lifting up the arm of the fighter who won the battle over the Devil. I also saw a big crowd of Angels around us cheering us on.

       I saw a picture where the whole room was full of Angels which were surrounding every single person in the courtroom. I also saw a picture of Johnny & Pearl & the baby. They were walking out of the courtroom & they were crying & rejoicing with happiness. Our enemies were in total confusion & they didn't know what had happened, that everything in their case had totally messed up! But Johnny & Pearl were so happy & rejoicing!

       I kept seeing the cover of the "How to Win" Tape, where the Angel is zapping the red dragon, & the dragon is falling down. The dragon was like Pearl's mother, & I don't know how, but somehow the mother is even going to be taken out of the way or something like that, so the Lord can get a full victory out of this.

       "As with Solomon of old, I will give this judge the wisdom to discern the thoughts & evil intents of this woman (Pearl's mother). He shall have My thoughts to understand & My wisdom that he shall see the love & the sincerity of My daughter, Pearl, & her sincere love for her little one; & the child shall not be divided nor torn from his true mother. But he shall be delivered into her hands & into My Family, to be raised & nurtured in the love & care of the Family." (With this prophecy I had a vision of King Solomon.)

       "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.  For we wrestle not against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Resist the Devil & he shall flee from you. For when the Enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him."

       "If God be for us, who can stand against us? Be not afraid, fear not, only believe. This is the victory that overcomes the World, even our faith."
       I got a vision when we were praying in which Jesus came down riding on a white horse & He was coming to help us, & He promised us that He would be with us unto the End of the World & that we would be great witnesses for Him unto all nations."

       "Faithful is He that calleth you Who also will do it. Put your hand into the hand of God & it shall be more to you than a light & better than a known way. Ye have placed this little one in My hands, & they are tender & loving hands. This little one is now hallowed about by My protecting Angels, hallowed about & safe in My loving & tender arms. This is My little one & I shall protect him & keep him.
       "I shall go forth to the battle, we shall go forth to victory together. United we stand. I am with them in the battle & I will defend them in this battle & I will confound the tongues of our enemies. I shall bring to  nought the wisdom of Man, & they shall be as fools. They shall be floundering & lost, without words to speak. My Spirit shall overpower them & they shall be astounded, & they shall know that this child, this little one, even Pearl, has been with Me & that she is empowered by My Spirit."

       I got the song that goes, "Faith is the victory! Faith is the victory! Oh glorious victory that overcomes the World!"

       "Every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement, thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord & their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord."

       I got the verse, "Now thanks be to God which always causeth us to triumph in Christ." (2Cor.2:14a.)

       "These things happened unto you as an ensample unto the Family, that they may increase in faith & increase in stature & increase in their trust in Me, knowing that I shall deliver & I shall not let these little ones fall into the hands of the Enemy, into the snares of the fowler, but I will deliver you.  
       "And this shall increase thy faith & increase the faith of thy children for the dark days ahead.  For yea, I shall deliver thee & these children shall not be given into the hands of Mine enemies, for I am the Protector.  I am the Lord thy God, I shall not let thine enemies exact upon thee.  For they shall see the right hand of My power & the right hand of My deliverance, & My children shall be vindicated."

       "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the World. Not by your might, but by My power, saith the Lord. For I shall intercede for thee, & I shall stand up for thee, as a strong fortress against the attacks of the Enemy. When the Enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. Fear not for the words to say, for in that very same hour I shall give thee wisdom & thine adversaries shall not be able to stand against thee. Their witnesses shall fall on their own faces, their lies shall be confounded, their devices that they have formed against thee shall not prosper, & ye shall come through victorious in the end!"

       While we were praying I kept getting that the Lord is really proud of us & that He wants us to go through with these hearings, because He wants to show us off to the World & show what good we're doing. He also wants to really prove how futile & how empty our enemies' lies are.

       I got a vision of a court scene, and all this liquid light was flooding the whole place and it was really, really bright. It was actually blinding the judge, he could not stand against it. And Michael in Australia and his gang were fleeing the room, while the Family Members on the other side of the room were praising the Lord.

       "Have I not said it and shall I not do it? For verily I say unto you, he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of Mine eye. And even as in the days of old shall I also raise up My hand against those who persecute you, for they shall not prosper. And he that diggeth a pit shall fall therein. This one they called Michael shall also fall in his own folly, and he shall be confounded, so that he shall not even speak nor think nor have coherence in all that he does or says. And it shall be unto them a reproach against all the charges they shall bring against you, for verily he is displeasing in My sight.
       "All things work together for good to them that love Me. I shall answer and protect these that stir themselves to call upon Me, My children, and these little ones. For if I shall not care for My Own, I am worse than an infidel.
       "But in all these cases I shall also raise up in Mine anger against thine enemies, and I shall smite them and they shall be as anathema*, and they shall be a reproach to those who rise up against thee. And they shall be ashamed, and they shall know indeed that ye are My children, for all that they do against you shall not prosper." (*anathema: a curse)
       I saw a picture of Michael, like he was a puppet, a marionette, and the people who were trying to use him to stir up this trouble were holding the puppet by the strings. But God's hand came down and grabbed him by the strings, and He shook Michael & he looked like he was completely uncontrollable, completely confounded, because the Lord had him by the strings. Then those who were trying to control Michael, the puppeteers, were completely in awe, because obviously Michael just fell apart. The hand of God came in and intervened.
       So not only Michael was discredited, but those who were behind him were kind of taken back, like when Jesus said in the Garden of Gethsemane, "I am He," and they fell back. These people are going to be shocked at the Lord's power.

       I got the song, " A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," especially the verse, "And though this World with devils filled should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God hath willed His Truth to triumph through us. The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him, his rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure, one little Word shall fell him!"--Jesus!
(Another two people also got this song.)

       "Who are they who they think they can stop My rain? They can never stop My rain upon the Earth."

       I got a picture of a woodcutter in the woods, cutting down all the dead branches. Those branches are pointy & sharp & they hurt & they try to block you from walking that way. But they're dead & they're powerless, & all you have to do is break them off or resist them or take the saw & cut them off. There's no power in them once you destroy them by His Spirit.

       "I say unto thee, watch. I will instruct thee & teach thee in the way which thou shalt go. I will guide thee with Mine eye. The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him, and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between His shoulders. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms, and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee. And He shall say, `Destroy them!'"

       "Behold, the Lord's arm is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is His ear heavy that He cannot hear. It would be better that a millstone be tied around their necks & that they be cast into the midst of the sea than that they offend one of these little ones.
       "Woman, where are thine accusers? Be not afraid of their faces, for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. When thou preparest for the battle & thou seest a multitude greater than thou art, be not afraid, for the Lord, the Most High God, He it is that doth go with thee. He will not leave thee nor forsake thee.
       "The Angels of the Lord are thousands, & even 20,000 chariots, & the Lord is mighty, the Lord God is the greatest. He is much greater than the forces of the Enemy. Not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord God spake concerning thee. All these things must come to pass. It is a great spiritual battle with clashing of arms & shouts, but the Lord, He it is that doth go with thee. He will win! Be not afraid, only believe!"

Vengeance Is Mine, Saith the Lord!

       "I am the Lord, the God of thy father David. Yea, I have seen thy tears, I have heard thy prayers, I will deliver. For have I not said, & will I not do it? Have I not said, Why do the heathen rage, & the people imagine a vain thing? For the kings of the Earth set themselves, & rulers take counsel together against the Lord & against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, & cast away their cords from us. But He that sitteth in the Heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, & vex them in His sore displeasure.
       "Evildoers shall be cut off, but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the Earth. For yet a little while, & the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, & it shall not be. But the meek, these little ones, shall inherit the Earth; & shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
       "The wicked plotteth against the just, & gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him, for He seeth that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword, & have bent their bow, to cast down the poor & needy, & to slay such as be of upright conversation. But their sword shall enter into their own heart, & their bows shall be broken. A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous. Yea, I will do it."

       When we were praying  I had a picture of Scrooge from the story, "A Christmas Carol," when the spirits came to him in the night & said, "Ebenezer Scrooge."  Then I saw all these spirits come to Pearl's mother at night & just torment her for what she's doing.--Maybe they will convict her heart, give her something in the night to where she sees what she's doing.  

       I had a picture where Valerie was like Jezebel. And concerning her teen daughter who she uses to testify against the Family, I got that the Lord would divide them & that He would cause enmity between them--the daughter would rebel as the mother has rebelled.  And the daughter will turn against the mother & will hate her.  Their house will divide, the Lord will divide them.

       I got the feeling that with this persecution a dark spirit is fighting us. And I also heard the Lord referring to Valerie as "Jezebel, the concubine of Satan."  It was like she had given herself over to the Devil in that way.
(Another person also got the name "Jezebel" for Pearl's mother.)

       Every time we received that verse about their curses coming on their own head, I kept getting this picture of a big beam falling on their heads, like the Lord's judgements on them.

       I got these verses: "God judgeth the righteous, & God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, He will whet His sword, He has bent His bow & made it ready. He hath also prepared for them the instruments of death, He ordaineth His arrows against the persecutors. He (the wicked) made a pit, behold, he travaileth with iniquity & has conceived mischief, & brought forth falsehood. He made a pit & diggeth it, & has fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, & his violent dealings shall come down upon his own pate (head). I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness & will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High."

       I kept getting the beginning of the verse about how it is a righteous thing to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you. We're not doing anything wrong, it's really righteous to pray against our enemies.

       I got that verse, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." The verses that are right before that one say: "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins; but a certain fearful looking for of judgement & fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me, I will recompense, saith the Lord, & again, the Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

       It's like the verse, "It would be better for them that a millstone be hung about their neck & they be cast into the sea, than to stumble one of our little ones."  When they start trying to get our little babies, they'd better watch out!

       I keep getting the song, "The Message of Jeremiah," especially where it says, "if you don't intend to repent, you'd better prepare to meet your coming fate."

       "He shall slay the wicked, & they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. Thou, O God, shall cause them to go down to the pit of destruction; bloody & deceitful men shall not live out half their days, but I will trust in Thee.  He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, for there were many with me.  God shall hear, & afflict them, even He that abideth of old."

       I got about Nebuchadnezzar, when he was turned into an animal & was eating grass all those years. I saw Pearl's mother like that.
       (Someone else also got the story of Nebuchadnezzar for Pearl's mother, & that Pearl's mother was going to go crazy.)

       "The Lord shall laugh at this calamity." I also got a picture of this big grinding stone, grinding all of our enemies into fine powder. And then a big wind came along, like a big puff, & blew all the powder away. I got the verse, "The Lord knoweth the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. And the ungodly are like the chaff which the wind driveth away."

       I had a vision where somebody was taunting & mocking the Lord, standing behind Him & tapping His shoulder. And all of a sudden the Lord turned around & smacked him right in the face. And just after that somebody gave a verse about the Lord breaking the teeth of the ungodly.

       I had a vision of Pearl's mother trying to testify, & she actually went crazy, right there in front of everybody, foaming at the mouth & everything.--It was a real gruesome kind of insanity, where it was real obvious.

       A verse that came to me is in Psalms, "Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the Angel of the Lord chase her!"

       I had a vision of all of us kneeling in a circle, & as we prayed, this tall Angel stood way above us & he had this huge lightning bolt in his hand & he threw it & it just circled around the World & went & zapped our enemies.

       When we were praying about Pearl's mother I was thinking, "Lord, let it be brought out what an unfit mother she was. Let what she's trying to accuse us of be brought upon herself," and then that verse came to me, "The way of the ungodly shall perish."

       When we prayed about Pearl's mother and  someone got about her going crazy, I was reminded of the story of Nebuchadnezzar and how he resisted the Lord in his pride and the Lord just smashed him.

       I got an unusual picture, but I guess it goes along with the verse someone got about the wicked being like the green bay tree & them passing away.  I felt really angry inside.  I don't usually feel something like that when I'm praying, but I guess it's like the Lord's anger at the wicked.  Then I saw Him rise up, His face & the breath of His nostrils, & He breathed out & it just smithereened all these enemies.  And with each breath, God's children would get driven further into the ground, like they were like stakes getting driven solidly into the ground, & they were strengthened & were standing really strong.  I guess it's like the brethren will be strengthened through this persecution.  And the wicked were just blown right away!  

       I had a vision that I didn't understand when we started praying, of a genie coming out of a bottle.  At first I thought it was us & our prayers releasing this genie, but then I got that our enemies were fiddling around & it seems they didn't know what they were doing, & they accidentally opened this bottle to release this genie. I saw this genie come out, like the kind you picture from the old Arabian tales, this giant thing with a giant sword, & he was going after them!

       I had this real clear vision of newspaper headlines that stated how we were vindicated in this case. And besides that, there were also pictures along with these news headlines showing different buildings or law firms that had gone bankrupt. There were also stories of different individuals' lives who were broken, & different stories of devastation & about how God's children were vindicated. These pictures were also part of this big book in which there were detailed accounts of how the Lord had vindicated us, not only just recently, but down through the years. It seemed like the story in this book started over 10 years ago. And as I was looking through this book & flipping through the pages, it came to me that this was the Lord's scrapbook on the destruction of our enemies!
       It really impressed me that the Lord is keeping really good track of how He's answering our prayers & "doing in" our enemies. He's keeping track of it much better than we are & we should keep in mind how He's never lost the battle, He's won the battle in every case & in every country, & any enemy who has ever risen up against us has been defeated. It really encouraged my faith that the case was already done & it's pinned in God's scrapbook & we can count it done. TYJ!

       When we were praying against the backsliders, I received the verse in Proverbs, "He that being often reproved & hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, & that without remedy."

       I was getting specifically for Lamb's ex-husband the word, pride, like he has a real spirit of pride.

When we were praying against any spiritual hindrances, I also got the word, pride.

       I kept getting that quote, "Give the Devil enough rope & he'll hang himself," meaning that the Lord is letting our enemies do these different things so that they can be exposed.

       When we were praying against the backslidden husband, Michael, I got the story of what happened to the atheist, Joseph Lewis, who challenged God by asking if anyone had ever been healed in the name of Jesus Christ, and how the Lord just completely wiped him out and how he couldn't even speak at the podium. (This story was received once before.)

       "He that persecuteth you persecuteth Me.  As much as they have done it unto the least of these My brethren, they have done it unto Me. It were better for them that a millstone were hung around their neck & that they were cast into the midst of the sea than that they should offend one of these, My little ones."

       "For yea, though the wicked has his day, it is he who shall be destroyed."

       I got a couple of verses out of Jeremiah. Jer.11:11: "Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto Me, I will not hearken unto them."
       And then a promise against our enemies' children. This is verse 22 & 23:  "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine. And there shall be no remnant of them."

       Psalm 41:5,9-11: "Mine enemies shall speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish? Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me." I got that for Michael, who used to be in the Family & who was at that time for us.  "But Thou, O Lord, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them. By this I know that Thou favourest me, because mine enemy does not triumph over me."
       I got a vision of the picture from Heaven's Children where the Angels were throwing lightning bolts at the Enemy.

       God uses the same things on our enemies that the Enemy tries to use on us, to slay them (our enemies). Like the Lord is going to use our enemies' lies to slay them (our enemies)!

       "I am the mighty terrible One. Therefore My persecutors shall stumble. They shall not prevail. They shall be greatly ashamed, for they shall not prosper.
       Their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten, but, O Lord of hosts, Thou triest the righteous, and seest the reins of the hearts. Let me see Thy vengeance on them, for unto Thee have I opened My cause."

       "He that being often reproved and hardeneth his neck shall suddenly be destroyed! For God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of power and of Love, and of a sound mind. But to Mine enemies I will give the spirit of fear, and a mind of weakness & corruption, and they shall tremble before Me, and shall fall to pieces. Fear & dread shall fall upon them."

       "To whom hath the right hand of the Lord been revealed?--But to David & to thy children.  For My hand is formed as a fist to come down & smash thy foes before thy face!  And to smash to pieces those who would oppose thee, & those who would oppose My David, & those who would oppose My children, for the Lord thy God is an angry God!  And I will wreak judgement, because their cup of iniquity has been filled.  For they have poked their finger in My eye, & I will judge them, & I will heap coals of fire upon their heads.  I will confound them, & I will destroy them, & I will judge them."
       I got a picture of this beautiful arm, it was a young strong arm, & I saw the muscles.  It was bronzed & it was clenched into a fist. It was a really strong arm, like the right hand of God.

       While we were praying, I kept seeing this fist & arm, & I kept getting the words, "His right arm" or "His right hand."  And then when someone gave the prophecy about how the Lord's hand is "formed as a fist to come down & smash thy foes before thy face," I saw the fist coming down.  It was like the Lord's fist was there waiting for us to command Him to do something, & then it came down in a mighty smash! And then I got the verse, "His right hand & His holy arm hath gotten Him the victory!"  


       "For I have brought all these things upon you to make you white, to give you compassion upon the people. For in so doing ye shall learn love & mercy.  Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, but behold, I have prayed for you that your faith fail not.  The trying of your faith being much more precious than of gold that perisheth. For I have given you faith above all measure. Therefore these things happen to strengthen your faith, to give you strength in time of trouble.  But behold, there cometh a time of trouble which is unparalleled to anything that has happened in the World before. Therefore these things happened that your faith may be strengthened. For in the days ahead you will use this strength."

       I got the verse, "If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses?" It is like the Lord is using this to strengthen each of us as individuals, and to strengthen the Family as a whole, & to prepare us for the Great Tribulation. (Someone else got that the Lord was allowing this to prepare us for the Great Tribulation.)

       I got the short verse, "Woe, ye nations, your cup of iniquity is full."  And I got that our prayers are not just against these people and against these enemies, but it is like a testimony against these nations & countries, and it shows that the End is very close.

Interpretation of Prophecies Given Concerning Persecution in England & Australia--By WS

"God Is in Control!"
       These Words from the Lord are very encouraging & faith-building, as He repeatedly reminds us that He & all the Angels in Heaven are on our side, & if God be for us, who can be against us! Reading these prophecies helps us to take our eyes off the circumstances--the false charges against us, the activities of our enemies, the technicalities of the cases & our defence--as we look up & see the omnipotence of the Lord! He is in control!  In the prophecies that were received in many different Homes & Areas, the Lord reminded us 38 times that the battle is His, & we can stand back & watch Him fight for us!
       Again & again, the same reassuring promises in prophecies were received all over the World. He told us that He would care for His Own 23 times.  And He commanded us to "fear not!" 89 times.
       The Lord told us repeatedly that He is the One on trial. Our enemies are fighting against the Lord, not just against us! But the Lord said He is able to defend His Own reputation, & He won't disappoint us!
       He also reminded us of the years He's protected us & the many times He's delivered us in the past.  He said, "For will I now deliver thy children into the hands of the Enemy? Have ye come this far, only now to be devoured?  Nay, but I am strong to deliver."  What He has done in the past, He has promised He will do again!

The Victory Will Be Ours!
       He promised that the victory is ours, & that He will cause the wrath of Man to praise Him. He says we should rejoice & praise Him for the victories which are ours by faith.  He told us 21 times that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper. He said, "It delighteth Me to give you liberty from those who would set you in bondage!"
       We know there will be a victorious outcome, & as the Lord promised, "Their judgement (of our enemies) is soon to come. But My children shall go on, go on to greater victories, they shall continue to witness & speak My Truth."  And concerning the precedent that will be set by these court cases, He said, "I will set a precedent that thine enemies shall fear!"
       The story of Queen Esther was given 15 times in various prophecies. And the story of Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego going into the fiery furnace was given 17 times.

It's a Spiritual Battle!
       It is made clear that we are in a fierce spiritual battle, & we are reminded 13 times that we wrestle not against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this World.  Thank the Lord, we are also told 22 times that "greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the World!" We are told 15 times that the victory that overcomes the World is our faith!
       We learn that there are strong ancient (spiritual) powers in the lands that are fighting us, but the Lord promised that not only will He send Angels to fight on our behalf, but also spirit helpers, such as Cromwell, Gladstone, Luther, Wycliff, & Tyndale will be fighting for our victory!

None of Our Children Will Be Lost!
       In spite of these raging spiritual battles, the Lord encourages us not to fear, that He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is pictured as a loving Shepherd protecting, carrying, sheltering & covering His little children.  He tells us that He loves our children more than we do, & it is not His Will that any should perish. He reassured us over 10 times that no man shall be able to pluck these little ones from His hand.
       There are many specific promises that these little ones will grow up in the Family. He says, "I have ordained these children to serve Me from the foundation of the World." He promises that these little ones shall be free, "free to be raised & nurtured in the admonition of My Word, free to be raised as the disciples that I have called them to be."  Also, the prophecies said:  "For this little one shall not be prey to the wolves, this little one shall be preserved, & shall be brought up & shall receive a great heritage as these children of David have received. ... Behold, I will not let this seed be transplanted to another ground that is not My Own. This seed was intended for Me, it was planned before all time & I shall keep it! I shall tenderly cherish this little one in the fold of My Love. For he is Mine! This child is Mine! I love him, I love him dearly. ... The dragon of Moloch shall not take this child from Me. He would seek to devour this perfect & pure child in My sight, but he shall not take him from thee. For this is My child & I did not give this child to rot in the garden of the Devil, but I have created him to grow beautifully in the garden of My Love & My Kingdom, & within your arms of mercy & Truth & the Family's love & care. This is a child created unto My glory. This is a little sparrow in My sight, a perfect sparrow. This sparrow shall not fall to the ground, he shall not fall to the Earth because of the Enemy's devices. For he is My child!" (And remember, what the Lord will do for these little ones is symbolic of what He will do for all our children! See "We Must Pray!--And Pray!--And Pray Again!", ML#2783:19 in FSM 215.)

Promises for the Court Proceedings!
       As far as our defence & the actual court proceedings, the Lord says He will make a plain path before us. He promises 13 times to give us the words to speak & wisdom that no man shall be able to gainsay nor resist.  And though we feel incapable & small, seven times the Lord gave us His perspective, likening us to David with Goliath. There were numerous visions confirming that His Angels will surround us & the judge in the courtroom. There were numerous visions of our enemies fleeing, being confounded, going crazy, & not having words to speak or saying things they didn't even plan to say (to our favour).
       The Lord said we should fear not to give our testimony with boldness.--And we should not be ashamed of the Words of David, for they will set the captives free if we will wield the sword of faith, doubting nothing, only looking unto the Lord's face. He said we shouldn't be dismayed, but rather thrilled & excited with the opportunity to show our true worth & our love for David & the Family.
       The Lord has us in a spiritual force field, a bubble of protection, & the Devil can't get to us.  The Lord's power is as a mighty wave of the ocean that will crush all who try to resist it.--But we who yield to Him will ride His mighty wave & destroy the enemies.  He promises that we shall do exploits, for these are the Last Days.
       He said the victory will not be won through the wisdom of Man but through the demonstration of His Spirit & power, as we speak from the heart & speak the Truth & speak in Love.

The Importance of Prayer!
(Points also drawn from the prophecies in FSM #215, pages 15-24.)
       As Mama explained in "We Must Pray!--And Pray!--And Pray Again!" the victory depends largely on our prayers!  The prophecies also clearly confirm this, & many of the Lord's wonderful promises of deliverance in the prophecies seem to be contingent on a condition--that we pray! The Lord called this battle a "major offensive" of our enemies. He said we cannot cease to pray, as prayer is the most powerful weapon we have, & none of our enemies can stand against it.  The victory will not come through carnal means or ways of the World or lawyers--but the tide of the battle will be turned according to our prayers.
       The Lord told us that "without prayer you are doomed to defeat. But with prayer, great victories are in sight!"  And if we fight in prayer, the prophecies said the Lord will be glorified in the victory.  He promised that the battle will be won if we come before Him in desperation.
       Some other specific points brought out about prayer are:  

--We need to be like the importunate woman, & if we "ask, we shall receive."
--We need to pray specifically, & then we will get specific answers; & when we stir up ourselves in prayer, the Lord will stir up Himself to answer.
--We must come boldly before His throne, & command the Lord.
--We also need to keep our guard up & attack in prayer. We cannot be passive, we must be militant & fight with all our strength through prayer.
--We partake of the battle, take up swords, & rescue these little ones through our prayers.  
--Our holding up our brethren in prayer was likened to how Aaron & Hur held up Moses' hands.  
--We also are to "stand in the gap" through our prayers.
--Our prayers will prevent many dangerous & powerful blows that the Enemy would try to bring against our children.
--The more we pray, the greater & more decisive will be the victory, & the clearer it will be that it was the Lord Who was fighting for us.
--We are instructed to pray for the brethren that they may "wax valiant in victory."  
--Our prayers are what will open the "Red Sea" of the legal system.

       The parallel of Elisha praying so the Lord could open the eyes of his servant to see the Angels round about them was received 10 times.  The prophecies said: "With each prayer, I will send legions of Angels & ministering spirits to help, to fight, to comfort, to guide, to lead, to give wisdom, to give understanding, to conquer the Enemy, to win the victory." There were at least 12 visions of the Lord or His Angels ready to fight for us, who were either waiting for our prayers or being sent to fight for us because of our prayers.
       We are reminded to pray for the judges, that they will have the wisdom of King Solomon of old.  We are also told in the prophecies to pray for our lawyers, that they have need of our prayers, & that the stand they're taking is a difficult one.--Their strength is not in themselves & we must strengthen them though our prayers! We are reassured that together we shall be victorious!

Stand on the Word!
       The prophecies brought out that as the days grow darker & darker, we need more faith to stand upon the Word & prayer.  We are instructed to fight with the Word! We are told 12 times that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God. The Lord says for us to go forth with the Word, to give it to the people, & to strengthen each other & our children with it.  We are to stand on the promises, cherish them, & keep them in our hearts, for we shall need them.
       The Lord said, "For verily if thou stand upon My promises & stand upon My Word, thou shalt win & thou shalt have the victory."  The Lord said the Word is His presence in the World & in the court, & that the only power the Enemy has is if we don't claim the power of the Word.
       Again the Lord emphasised the seriousness of these cases & the absolute necessity that we stay desperate when He said, "But I say, continue in desperation for the job is not done. For as your Queen hath well spoken, the Enemy will seek to take this child to destroy many of your children, as he sought to destroy Jesus & as he sought to destroy many children in other days. Many lost their children in desperation & weeping, but it does not have to be so unto thee, if thou wilt but cry unto Me for this mother & this child in desperation. For the Word is what will release him. The Word is My presence in that court, the Word is My presence upon this Earth, the Word is My presence against the Enemy & against the Devil, & he shall not prevail against Me, for My Word is powerful!
       "My Word is the victory, & My Word is the weapon & the sword & the bullets, & you must continue to uphold a force field around this child, for all Hell would break loose against the Family today to destroy their little ones, but ye must fight as ye have never fought before in prayer & ye must claim My Word throughout the day, for it is My Word that will deliver!"  PTL!

Other Keys for Victorious Warfare!
       The Lord made it clear in the prophecies & the Letter from Mama that prayer is the most important point of our battle plan. However, within the prophecies there were many other points of instruction about how to fight this battle.   
       The Lord said, "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto Me."  He said to stand up & fight & not be ashamed of Him or the Word or the doctrines of the Family--boldly proclaim the Truth. They made it clear that we have to fight the good fight of faith, have conviction, & speak all the Words of this life. The Lord admonished us to "stand & deliver," & to not let the enemies' lies weaken us!--That it is our duty to speak the Truth, so that all may know that the Lord is our God.  He said we have been called to the Kingdom for such a time as this, to be witnesses & defenders of the Words of David.
The Lord also instructed us to:

--Obey & go into the fold of obedience & prayer, then He will do the rest.
--Proceed with the Lord, follow Him, for He has a plan, & we will be vindicated if we will listen closely.  
--Put on the whole armour of God.
--Be not ignorant of the Devil's devices.
--Be aggressive, as we can't win a defensive warfare.
--Seize the faith we need to withstand in these dark days.
--Yield to Him & ride the wave of His power.

Why the Lord Is Allowing This Persecution
       It's very encouraging to see throughout the prophecies that the Lord promises that this persecution will work together for good. And He even tells us many of the reasons why He's allowed this persecution. According to the prophecies, some of the purposes of this persecution are as follows:

--To bring us before judges & magistrates as a testimony to the World. (He brought this point out 15 times!)
--To bring the Family together as one, so that we may come from the corners of the Earth before the Lord in prayer.
--To make us a witness in courts before modern-day Pharaohs. (The parallel of Moses before Pharaoh was given five times.)
--To get the Message out so the people will have to make a decision, a choice. To awaken interest where there was previously no interest.
--So the World can know that a Prophet hath been among them, because the Words the Lord has spoken will come to pass!
--To show that we're the Lord's children--like a sign or proof.
--As a testimony in our favour.
--To ke
ep us on our toes & desperate.
--To test & strengthen our faith--for in the days ahead we will need such strength.
--To set a precedent which will favourably influence future court cases.
--So we can grow in faith & the power of prayer for the Endtime.
--To test us to see if we'll fight in prayer alongside Pearl & Lamb.
--To show the perfidy, evil, & wickedness of our enemies.
--As a purging, to strengthen our faith & conviction for the troublous times ahead.
--To strengthen our children in the Word & faith, to draw them closer to the Lord, so they will never stray.
--So our enemies can fill their cups of iniquity, & be damned & cursed & judged.
--To make us more united & obedient.
--So the whole World can see that the Lord has placed His name upon us.
--So the Lord's power can be manifested.
--As proof that we are the Lord's Prophets.
--So the Lord can show us off & show the World all the good we're doing. (He's proud of us.)
--To prove how futile the lies of our enemies are.
--To separate the sheep from the goats.
--To show the Lord has set His face against those who would do evil to His children.  They are standing trial & He has them weighing in the balances.
--As an ensample for us, upon whom the ends of the World are come, to strengthen our faith & glorify the Lord.
--The fire of these tests is to burn away the chaff & bring forth pure gold.

Our Teens & JETTs as Witnesses!
       The Lord also confirmed that He will use our children as mighty witnesses, that this is a new era, where our children are coming to the forefront to be witnesses. The prophecies say that "our children are the proof of the pudding, witnesses unto the World, & they will not be able to deny the witness." Seven times the Lord gave the verse that our children "shall speak with the enemies in the gate."

Our Lawyers' Part!
       When speaking about our lawyers, the prophecies say that "they're speaking for us, like Aaron spoke for Moses." The Lord promises to give our lawyers a mantle, the Spirit, & that everyone will recognise it. The Lord said He will raise up a new Gamaliel who will stand up for His children.
       We are told that our lawyers & barristers will grow in love for the Lord & the Family, but we are also reminded that we need to feed them, & pray for them, & care for them.

The Lord's Vengeance on Our Enemies!
       Along with many wonderful promises of the Lord's powerful protection & deliverance for us, there were also numerous prophecies & visions about the awesome judgements of the Lord on our enemies!  He said 23 times that "he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of Mine eye!"  He reminds us eight times that vengeance is His, & His warning that it would be better for a millstone to be hung about their necks & they be cast into the sea was given nine times!  
       The prophecies about Pearl's mother call her a witch,  & say she will go crazy like Nebuchadnezzar, & be smitten as Jezebel was smitten. There were visions of her going crazy & foaming at the mouth right in the court room. The prophecies say "she is nothing in God's sight, He could blow her away with one breath."
       The prophecies & visions show that Michael will be confounded, lack coherence, & look crazy.  He was pictured as a puppet being used by our enemies, but the hand of God intervened & shook him up & confounded him.
       The Lord used many descriptive words to explain what awaits our enemies. For example, He said He will confound, destroy, smite & expose them. He'll curse them, blind them, blast them, defeat them, & slay them! He will smack them, swat them down, break their teeth, & afflict them with boils & pestilences. He said He will destroy them with lightning, grind them to powder & blow them away, cast them down violently & smash them. He will chase them down, pursue them, scatter them, & grind them to dust.  The Good Shepherd will whack the wolves with His rod, & hold & care for the little sheep.
       The following points are more about how the Lord sees our enemies & the judgements that they will face for having persecuted His children:

--Our enemies are "specks in the Lord's sight."
--The Lord just has to blink to cause all the enemies to fall!
--They are as worms who will be squashed by the Lord.
--Our enemies are a bubble of hot air that shall vanish away with the wind.
--He will strike at our enemies' children, & divide their families.
--He will plague them with evil spirits.
--His fist will come down & smash them.
--They shall not live out half their days.
--They shall fall into the pit they're digging for others, & their swords will enter their own hearts.
--They shall be as fools, floundering & lost, without words to speak.
--They shall be visited with much trouble, sickness & pain.
--The Lord will expose our enemies as haters of good & of Him, & He'll show this to be religious persecution.
--Psalm 2 was received over 15 times.

Specific Prophecies for Pearl
       The prophecies assured us that Pearl has come to the kingdom for such a time as this, & she shall be greatly strengthened in the Lord. He said that these tests will strengthen her, & make her blossom. The Lord is honouring Pearl & Johnny, teaching them to be real fighters.
       As far as her testimony in court, the prophecies indicated that the Lord will give her wisdom before the judge, & the Comforter will cause her to be a witness. There was a vision of her answering questions in court with conviction.--She was bright, full of light--beautiful, & overwhelming to the judge. The enemies shall know that Pearl has been with Jesus, & she will be empowered by His Spirit. She was envisioned safely walking through the "Red Sea" of the English legal system. In another vision, she is standing before the judge who is saying, "You're free!"
       Pearl was reminded that she shouldn't fear her mother or be intimidated, because Pearl has the Lord & she can stand strong against her mother in the Spirit.
       Repeatedly the Lord confirmed that He will give the judge wisdom as He did King Solomon of old, & the judge will see the love & sincerity of Pearl. (This parallel was given 15 times for Pearl & her baby.)
       The Lord called Pearl "a little child" & He said He would save her, carry her, hold her close, walk with her & lead her. He said, "But lean thy head on My shoulder & I shall speak through thee & for thee & we shall be together forever with thy little one."

Specific Prophecies for Lamb
       The Lord said, "Fear not, little Lamb, it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the victory!"  He also promised that Lamb "shall triumph in the name of Jesus!"
       Several times Lamb was pictured as Brunheld, & it was said that she will be anointed with power & wise speech & powerful conviction. She will be given wisdom that no one will be able to gainsay nor resist.  The verse, "Ye have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this", was received eight times for Lamb.  And two people received that Queen Esther would be Lamb's spirit helper, & that Lamb would have the same conviction, power & anointing to intercede for her people that Queen Esther had.
       There were many promises of protection for Lamb & her children, including a vision of them walking with the Lord in a bubble of protection. There was also a vision of Lamb & her children in the arena fighting, & the departed Saints were fighting with her, coming to her defense & helping her.  Also the parallel of Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego was given for Lamb & her children five times. (And that Bible story was referred to a total of 17 times throughout the prophecies.)
       There were several warnings about the dangers of being familiar with the situation. And the Lord showed how much we need to pray for her, so she will not go in her might nor power, but in the Lord's Spirit!
The Lord gave great comfort when He said, "Lamb & her little ones are in My hand, & I shall lead & guide them & all those with them.  I shall lead them through this path, which may seem dark at times, but I am there with them to be a light unto them to guide them in the way that they should go, to strengthen them & to lift up any hands that hang down. But they need not hang down, they need not be discouraged, for there shall be a victory!  And men will know that ye have called upon My name & ye have fought this battle in My name & ye have won this battle for My name, & I shall be glorified!"

       In the prophecies the Lord said that we should "count it as a great privilege to go into this battle for your Father, as a defender of the Truth, as a defender of His lambs. Rejoice therefore that ye can be testimonies of the fruit of thy father David. For it is a great honour & privilege to defend his Words, which are My Words in this last generation."
       The Lord is praying for us that our faith fail not, & He promised that we shall celebrate the victory: "And all the land shall rejoice & say, `Behold, the Lord has wrought a great & mighty victory in answer to our prayers!'  And all the land shall be united & shall rejoice in the power of prayer." But He also reminded us to continue to pray, saying: "For although the victory is there, the war in the Spirit will continue until the decision has been made & the victory won."  
       The Lord is in control, but we must keep fighting. As He said, "For this case does not hinge on carnal means, but on the weapons of the Spirit that I have given thee. Wherefore continue to pour out your hearts before Me & cease not, & I will turn the hands & hearts of those who hold the decision in their hands.  For is not the decision Mine?  Wherefore trust in Me & continue to beseech Me for the deliverance of these little ones." PTL!

       "The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous runneth into it & are safe, and the gates of Hell shall not be able to stand against you. Therefore lay siege to the gates of Hell, besiege them & war against them, war a good warfare. Fear not! Go in this thy might. For only one can chase a thousand, but two can put ten thousand to flight, and yea, ye are many more than two who are gathered together in My nametherefore am I in the midst of you!
       "The battle is won! It is finished! In the spirit it is over! Ye have only to see the manifestation that it is won!"
