God often speaks through parabolic signs. The sign can speak a message if we have ears to hear and eyes to see.
And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign. (Exodus 4:8)
A prophetic man named Paul Cain died on February 12 this year. On the day he died, it snowed in Hawaii. On the day he was buried, February 22, it snowed in the Phoenix area. It also snowed in Santa Maria, California, where he had been living and was buried. Since these geographical locations rarely receive snow, it captured my attention.
We hosted Paul Cain on February 12, 2007, at a conference we called “Quantum Glory.” He laid hands on a young man named Joshua and commissioned “the Joshua generation.” (We likened this act to Moses commissioning Joshua in the Old Testament.) Paul died exactly 12 years later to the day and I learned that it was also the date that Moses died on the Hebraic calendar! Paul Cain had been a part of the Latter Rain Revival that began on February 12, 1948.
As a young evangelist, he had huge tent meetings where he saw the sick healed. He also operated in a very high level word of knowledge gift, often telling people their names, birthdates, and other information that he had no way of knowing. Paul became disillusioned with the greed, competition, jealousy, and corruption he saw during that revival and he went into seclusion, known as his silent years. He spent about 25 years in the Phoenix area, where he was told that his mother would not die until he stood before a “new breed” of ministry.
In February 1989, he journeyed from Arizona to Southern California, where it snowed on the day he arrived! He stood in John Wimber’s pulpit for the first time on February 12 and announced that he was the beginning of the “new breed” of ministry that he had been waiting for. (John Wimber was the founder of the Vineyard movement. Paul’s mother died the next year at age 105.)
Snow speaks of purification. I believe God is looking for a “new breed” of ministry who will be marked by genuine love and unity. Paul Cain once prophesied that the Church without mixture would have the Spirit without measure.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)
A MIGHTY CHANGE!
In October 2002, we had an unforgettable experience at a roundtable and conference we hosted in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Shawn Bolz, who also had been a part of the Vineyard movement in the early days, and currently operates in a similar gifting as Paul Cain, went to his room and found change scattered all throughout his room. We thought it meant “change” and when we added up the coins, it came to $3.03. We decided to do our next roundtable on March 3, 2003 (3-3-3) and our Scripture would be Jeremiah 33:3. (We scheduled the next conference, Revelation Glory, on March 6-8, 2003.)
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. (Jeremiah 33:3)
In November 2002, a month after Shawn found the change scattered around his room, Benny Hinn was on TBN. He started prophesying that there was a change coming, a mighty change, and that God told him that it would begin on March 3!
We invited another prophetic man, Bob Jones, who also had been associated with the Vineyard movement, (and was buried on February 22, 2014), to be a part of that roundtable and conference in March 2003. Before coming, he saw a vision of an hourglass and he heard God say “it’s time for divine purposes to be established in the land of great Beauty.” God would be releasing “Beauty and Unity” in the Pacific Northwest. Heavy snow also fell the day after that event.
Today, I was researching the symbolic meaning of snow and I read that the gematria (numerical equivalent) of the Hebrew word sheleg (snow) is 333!
The “Revelation Glory” conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in March 2003 was one of three conferences that Bob Jones said would be trilogy. The first one was in Albany, Oregon, and was called “From Proclamation to Demonstration,” and the third one was in Shreveport, Louisiana, and was called “Restoring the Voice of Healing.”
At the first trilogy conference, Bob was visited by a heavenly messenger named Sundar. The messenger told Bob that Paul Keith Davis would know the meaning of his name. While Bob was having this encounter, Paul Keith was in his hotel room and heard “Beautiful to the Eyes and Ears” and wrote it down. Later, after talking to Bob and looking up the meaning of the name Sundar, he was astonished to find out that it meant “Beautiful to the Eyes and Ears!”
Special instructions were given by this messenger for those yearning to witness creative miracles and to see the restoration of lost limbs and organs. The messenger emphasized that these signs and wonders would be demonstrated when “unity among the brethren” becomes reality. (Psalms 133)
The messenger said that unity is a more important issue to the Lord than most believers realize. If the Lord can find just a few who are willing to lay down their lives, plans, agendas, and ministries for their brothers and sisters, He will transform cities and regions. It must be birthed in genuine love and fraternal affection.The messenger pointed out that ambition among believers opens the door for suspicion; suspicion brings competition; and competition breeds division. When suspicion and competition are present, it will motivate leaders to discredit or undermine other leaders they feel threatened by. This kind of spirit cannot exist in the hearts of those to whom the Lord desires to release substantial spiritual power and authority. It will actually disqualify some if is not properly dealt with and submitted to the grace of God and the work of His Spirit.
BEAUTY FOR ASHES
In October of this year, I was in the Phoenix area and discussed doing a conference there with Father John and Cherie Calbom, who founded a ministry named “Trinity Retreats.” After the conversation with them, I remembered that in March 2003, Bob Jones had prophesied that what we were doing in Coeur d’Alene would spread to the Phoenix area. He said that somehow Phoenix and the surrounding area were involved in the “divine scheme of things” and an ancient healing well would be uncapped there. I was undone when I realized the significance.
Seventeen years later, to the very date, we will be hosting “Quantum Faith Convergence” in the Phoenix area!
Many of us have been going through the purifying process and, like the Phoenix, we will rise up out of the ashes. God is giving us BEAUTY for ASHES.
