Preaching the Jesus in Red

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

Last night, our power went out downstairs. Immediately after my son went to the breaker box and reset the breaker, I clicked on an old Bob Jones video.

In this video from 2011, Bob was speaking in California, but he began sharing about a vision he had over 20 years prior in Spokane (close to where I live in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho). It was about a breaker box! He immediately had my attention. 😉

In the vision, the power had gone out and he saw a breaker box where a wire was disconnected. He said if the power comes on and we are “not grounded,” it could kill us! He said we need anointed teachers to “ground” us.

This reminds me of another Bob Jones experience I’ve been pondering. Last year, on Bob’s birthday, two people I know (who don’t know one another) had a dream and a vision of Bob and he was wearing a red shirt and white shorts.

I’ve been thinking about the symbolism of the red shirt and white shorts and came across an experience that Mike Bickle shared years ago. (Mike Bickle is the founder of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. Bob Jones was an integral part of that ministry in the early days.)

On September 17, 1997, during a prayer meeting at IHOP, the Holy Spirit highlighted Isaiah 63:1-6 to Mike Bickle. He felt the wind and fire of the Holy Spirit manifesting on him for several hours as he meditated upon it.

Isaiah 63 speaks of Jesus the King wearing the red garments of a judge as He walked through the nations.

Mike began to say, “Your red garments are glorious. Why are they RED? A king should be in WHITE garments.”

In response, he heard: “There are no governments on earth that will agree with My judgments. They are against them. I will trample the nations alone even though none agree with Me. Will you agree with Me?”

Mike repeatedly said “yes,” as he continued to feel the wind and the fire. Then, he heard the Lord say: “You will be rejected even by some of My people. Some will rise up against you.”

Mike promised the Lord: “I will preach the Jesus in the WHITE dazzling garment from Song of Solomon 5:10, and the Jesus in RED from Isaiah 63.”

Then, a prophetic man came over and prophesied to Mike (not knowing what Mike had just prayed): “The same angel that touched you two weeks ago with fire and wind is here again. Jesus is coming to you in red garments. He is putting the mantle of Isaiah 63 on you. You must study it because you will preach the Jesus in red.”

Mike understood that he was to proclaim how Jesus’ judgments were released to remove all that hindered love, and it was not a contradiction to His great love as the Bridegroom King. 💥

The experience Mike had reminds me of the Scripture in Romans where it tells us to behold both the kindness and the severity of God. It is not either/or, but both/and. God’s judgments are released to remove all that hinders love. Will we agree with Him? ❤️

The Key of David

The “days of wonder” are upon us!

“In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.”

(Acts 2:17-19)

Paul Cain, Bob Jones, and John Paul Jackson were affectionately called “The Kansas City Prophets.”

Although they were weak and broken men, they had extraordinary prophetic gifts.

I do not think it is a coincidence that they were all buried on 2/22 in different years. I think there is a message regarding the dates they died and the date they were all buried.

Bob Jones died on February 14, 2014 – Valentine’s Day. Bob had a death experience in 1975 where he went to heaven and was asked one question: “Did you learn to love?” He was sent back to earth after being told about a great end-time revival that would take place. Of course, Valentines Day is the day we celebrate love.

John Paul Jackson died on February 18, 2015 – Ash Wednesday. John Paul had a supernatural birth. An angel appeared to his mother before his birth, telling her that she would soon give birth to a son and she was to name him John Paul. The angel told her that he would have an 11th-hour ministry and even her pregnancy would be a sign. He was born after being in her womb 11 months! John Paul taught on dreams and visions. One of his last messages was calling our nation to repentance as he saw a “perfect storm” coming. Ash Wednesday is a day that marks a season of fasting, repentance, and prayer.

Paul Cain died on February 12, 2019 – the Latter Rain Revival began on that date. Paul also had a supernatural birth. When his mother was pregnant with him, she had three terminal diseases. An angel appeared to her and told her that she would have a son and she should name him Paul as he would preach the gospel like the apostle Paul. (She was completely healed and lived to the age of 105.) Paul was a part of the Latter Rain Revival in the 40’s and 50’s, preaching to crowds of thousands. He operated in a word of knowledge gift and many were healed in his meetings.

Paul Cain became discouraged because of the jealousy and backbiting that he experienced during the Latter Rain Revival. The Lord took him out of ministry and into the desert for 30 years (known as his silent years). During that period he was to return to his first love and to make the ministry of love his highest priority.

During his time in the desert, Paul Cain saw a re-occurring vision over 100 times. He saw stadiums being filled with people ministering day and night. No one knew the names of those ministering, and the dead were being raised and the major news stations were reporting on all the miracles taking place.

These three men were all buried on 2/22. I don’t think that is a coincidence!

In 1998, Lou Engle wrote a book entitled “Digging the Wells of Revival.” He wrote about how he kept seeing the number 222 everywhere. Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets also wrote a book in 2005, entitled “Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation,” where Dutch also recounts how he was seeing the number 222 everywhere. They both felt it had to do with Isaiah 22:22: “I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.”

King David is an example of the “new government of love.” (See Isaiah 16:5, Msg) When we return to our first Love, and we learn to love, I believe substantial spiritual authority will be entrusted to us (the key of David).

The Next Wave

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

Years ago, I had a dream about a baby being born in Kansas City on 11/11. She had red hair and her name was Gabrielle.

After having the dream, I traveled to Kansas City and stayed with friends whose address was 11411, #11. I told them about my dream and I said that I thought it was symbolic of Hebrews 11:11.

The next day, we went to a conference and Michael Sullivant asked who was seeing the number 1111? Of course I raised my hand! 😉 Then, to my amazement, he said, “it’s Hebrews 11:11!”

“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered Him faithful who had made the promise.” (Hebrews 11:11)

On November 11, 2009 (11/11/09), we hosted a conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, that we entitled “Breakthrough Revival.” On that same day, during a 9:00 am class at the IHOP University in Kansas City, the Holy Spirit moved in their midst with physical healings, deliverance, and a spirit of joy. That class continued for more than 15 hours!

The word spread quickly, and more than 2,000 people spontaneously gathered in the auditorium from all over the Kansas City area, as deliverance and physical healings increased. The meeting continued well past midnight.

Classes were cancelled at IHOPU for the next few days as people began to be healed and delivered. Many reported being delivered from shame and self-hatred and experiencing God’s love for the first time.

Nightly meetings began and they were live streamed. People around the world were awakened and encouraged as many came to salvation and were physically healed. Several of the testimonies had to do with the heart transformation that was taking place.

After a year, Mike Bickle was told if he would discontinue the nightly meetings and continue to pray 24/7, as they had been doing for years, the next wave of revival would be so much bigger.

Let’s position ourselves to catch this next wave. Like Sarah, let’s count Him faithful who made the promise! ❤️

Bob Jones Birthday!

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

Today, February 4, is Bob Jones’ birthday. He would have been 90 years old.

Last year, on this date, Kathie Walters saw a vision of Bob wearing a red shirt and white shorts. He threw her a ball in the vision.

Kathie also saw a vision of Bob on the date he died (February 14, 2014) and he was wearing the same red shirt and white shorts.

A Facebook friend told me about a dream she had last year on Bob’s birthday. In the dream, she flew from Southern California into the Phoenix airport. She was there to pick up Bob Jones. He was wearing a red shirt and white shorts!

In the dream, she sang him the Happy Birthday song. (She didn’t know it was Bob’s birthday when she had the dream, nor had she heard about Kathie Walters seeing visions of Bob wearing the same red shirt and white shorts!) She actually moved to Arizona with her family a few months later because of the dream. As they were crossing the Arizona State line, she saw a vision of Bob in the backseat of their car and he said, “I’ve been waiting for you to get here.”

I’ve been pondering this because we are hosting a “Quantum Convergence” in the Phoenix area on March 6-8. It is exactly 17 years to the day that Bob Jones prophesied that what we were doing in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, would spread to Phoenix and the surrounding area. He saw a healing well in the area being uncapped.

As many of you know, Bob Jones prophesied that when the Kansas City Chiefs win the Super Bowl that it would be a sign of the end-time revival beginning. The uniforms of the Kansas City Chiefs are RED jerseys and WHITE pants!

Could this be the day?

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words, Revival

Over the years, Bob Jones prophesied that when Kansas City wins the Super Bowl, that revival would come. It had to do with God raising up His “apostolic chiefs.”

Many are watching today’s game, as the Kansas City Chiefs play in the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, wondering if this could be the time of the fulfillment of that prophetic promise.

In 2012, I interviewed Bob Jones at his home in Charlotte. He told me that July 3, 1984, was probably the greatest day of his life as he had a face-to-face encounter with the Lord and the Lord called him “friend.”

Five years prior, the Lord had told Bob that he would visit him on July 3rd and he would see the apostolic coming forth. There would be a double rainbow on that day to confirm the word. He had been waiting!

On that day in 1984, Bob Jones saw a parade of people going down Blue Ridge Street in Kansas City. Many in the parade had been healed and delivered and were carrying their crutches and pushing wheelchairs. They were on their way to Arrowhead Stadium for a great gathering and outpouring.This parade was being led by a group of about 35 young people and they were carrying the ark of the covenant. The Lord said “these young ones are those who will keep me high and lifted up all the days of their lives. I will prepare them to bring the glory of God in. They will bring it in through Isaiah 35, the Highway of Holiness.” (I-35 runs through Kansas City)

Instead of being on the platform, however, Bob was in the stands wearing a hospital gown. The Lord told him that he got dropped when he was young, like Mephibosheth. The Lord explained that leaders in his life had not challenged him and had not insisted that areas of wounding and weakness be opened up, healed, and washed clean. There were things in his foundation that were so deeply ingrained that he would deal with them all his life and that he would walk with a limp. (Mephibosheth was the son of Jonathan and was King’s Saul’s grandson. After the deaths of Saul and Jonathan, Mephibosheth became crippled as his nurse dropped him as she fled in panic. Mephibosheth’s name means “from the mouth of shame.”)

In 2003, we hosted a conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, with Bob Jones, Shawn Bolz, Noel Alexander, Bobby Conner, Ray Hughes, and Paul Keith Davis. Ray Hughes had a dream during that conference where he was digging potatoes and putting them in a bag labeled “Idaho.” The potatoes turned into little apples. The word “Idaho” changed to “Ida-hope.” In the dream, Bob Jones came to him and said “it’s the apple-stolic!” Ray felt the interpretation had to do with the hope of the apostolic coming forth. Later I found out that Idaho became a state on July 3rd (the same date Bob had seen the apostolic coming forth in 1984.)

Twenty years ago I spoke at a conference in South Africa entitled “Moving into the Apostolic.” About 20 years prior to that trip, I was wondering if there were still apostles today and then I found a book in our church library that answered my question. It was entitled “Andrew Murray, Apostle of Abiding Love.” (Andrew Murray was an apostle from South Africa.)

Prior to my trip to South Africa in 2000, Bob Jones had seen a vision of an African violet and had prophesied that “signs, wonders, and miracles” were coming from South Africa to the United States.“

I persevered in demonstrating among you the marks of a true apostle, including signs, wonders and miracles.” (2 Corinthians 12:12)

I, along with others, have been longing to see true apostolic power restored. We’ve seen tokens of that power along the way, but we are longing to see the fullness of the promises fulfilled, including the promise that “NO DISEASE KNOWN TO MAN WILL STAND IF WE WALK IN OBEDIENCE.”

Could this be the day?

Ask for the Ancient Paths

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing

In Jeremiah 6:16, it says to ask for the ANCIENT PATHS in order to find REST for your souls. That verse concludes with “But you said, We will not walk in it.”

The “ancient paths” can include herbs, meditation, essential oils, crystals and gemstones, sound healing, etc.

I have observed that many Christians are fearful of the “ancient paths,” because they don’t believe they are Biblical.

Did you know that The Talmud says that Father Abraham wore a stone around his neck and he used it to heal people? Stones and crystals carry healing frequencies! 💥

Did you know there are hundreds of references in the Bible to essential oils (or the plants and trees that they are made of)? There are many verses that talk about the laying on of hands and the application of oil. Essential oils raise our frequency and there is a transference of energy when we lay hands on someone. 💥

Did you know that the Solfeggio frequencies were used in sacred music, including the beautiful and well known Gregorian Chants? Each Solfeggio tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your body, mind, and spirit in perfect harmony! 💥

Did you know that John Wesley, who founded the Methodist denomination, used to use a battery to heal people? It was frequency! 💥

Did you know that the Early Church had a “theology of energy?” There are several references to energy in the New Testament. The spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12 were described as “workings of energy” in the original text. 💥

Multi-generational Approach to Healing

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing

Studies have shown that traumatic memories can be passed down through generations.

A scientific experiment on rats showed that a traumatic event could affect the DNA in sperm and alter the brains and behavior of subsequent generations.

The experiences of a parent, even before conceiving, can influence the nervous system and the brains of subsequent generations, the report concluded.

In doing healing work, we must take a multigenerational approach.

If you’d like to learn more about this topic, I recommend “The Memory Code” book by Dr. Alexander Loyd. Another good resource is “Scared Sick” by Robin Karr-Morse and Meredith S. Wiley.

Overlooking Offenses

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing, Prophetic Words

Years ago, Bob Jones prophesied about “beauty and unity” in the Pacific Northwest and how unity was necessary if we were going to experience healings and creative miracles.

His prophetic word also came with a warning. He saw “cyclone fences,” and they represented “offenses.” He saw this was the strategy to stop the move of God in our area.

And that is EXACTLY what happened!

We get offended when we feel hurt, angry, or upset by something that someone has said or done. Instead of going to that person directly and resolving the issue, we often harbor anger and resentment.

When we take offense, it is because we are usually hurt, ashamed, or afraid.

We often get offended when we feel dishonored or disrespected. The main reason we get offended is because we are insecure. The more secure we are, the less likely we will choose to take offense.

We also can take offense when something touches on an unhealed wound from our past. We often transfer our feelings about a past incident onto a person who looks, acts, or behaves like the person who has hurt us before.

We can take offense when we don’t agree with someone. We have been taught that it’s not acceptable to disagree. We’ve been programmed to fear “the other.” We often demonize those we don’t agree with.

The good news is that we can make a choice not to take offense. We are told in Proverbs 19:11: “Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.”

We are told in 1 Peter 4:8, that “Love covers over a multitude of sins.”

As we mature in love, and become secure in our identity, the less offended we will be.

THE MYSTERY OF THE SNOW

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing, Prophetic Words, Quantum

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.

Repetition Compulsion

Kari BrowningBlog, Healing

I’ve observed that people often repeat traumatic events over and over again.

It’s called “repetition compulsion” in psychology.

Today, I was reading the memoir of a well-known person who recently re-experienced what she had experienced in junior high school. She had a career as a very popular highly-paid news anchor who suddenly had people turn on her and bully her. She eventually found herself without a job. When she was in junior high school, she had a group of friends that rejected her and bullied her. They were very cruel to her and it was quite traumatizing. She went from being popular to being very alone. The similarities were uncanny.

According to psychiatrist and researcher Bessel van der Kolk, “Many traumatized people expose themselves, seemingly compulsively, to situations reminiscent of the original trauma. These behavioral reenactments are rarely consciously understood to be related to earlier life experiences.”

According to Sigmund Freud, an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, we seek out these experiences in order to recreate history and change the outcome, thereby gaining mastery over what we could not control as a child.

I believe that another factor is that “we create what we believe.” During the initial trauma, we form negative core beliefs that will cause us unconsciously to keep drawing situations and people into our lives that match our beliefs.

In order to stop the cycle of repetition and to repair the damage of past trauma, we need to recognize and stop unhealthy survival patterns. We often numb our emotions through addiction. As Dr. Gabor Mate says, “I never ask why the addiction, I ask why the pain.”

We need to heal past trauma and identify the negative core beliefs we formed – and then actively “rewire our brain” with the truth.

After bringing healing to the traumatic memories, we may need to do some form of somatic work to release trauma from our bodies. This can involve deep breathing and trauma-informed exercises. This helps to change the central nervous system’s arousal response which puts us automatically in “fight, flight, freeze” mode.

Healing is a journey, but help is available and we can stop the repetition cycle.
