THE MYSTERY OF FIRSTFRUITS

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

I’ve been on an exciting journey to understand the Biblical mysteries that have been sealed up until this time in history.

But you, Daniel, keep these words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. (Daniel 12:4)

I’ve found a key to unlock the mysteries and I want to share that key with you!

The key, I believe, is found in Leviticus 23. When we understand the Biblical festivals, it opens up revelation about end-time mysteries. The biblical term mystery refers to “a secret from the Lord.”

Your God is indeed the God of gods, the Lord of kings and a revealer of secrets. (Daniel 2:47)

There are mysteries that can only be understood by comprehending the Biblical festivals and the language and customs associated with each festival. These festivals were given to the Jewish people by God to teach on the First and Second Comings of our Messiah.

Jesus fulfilled the Spring festivals at His First Coming and He will fulfill the Fall festivals at His Second Coming.

God commanded the people, once they entered the Promised Land, to bring the firstfruits of their barley harvest as a wave offering before Him on that day. The people were forbidden to use any part of the harvest until after the firstfruits were offered to the Lord. Firstfruits were always the first and the best. When the Children of Israel entered the Promised Land, the manna ceased on the 16th day of Aviv. The day following, Aviv 17, they ate the firstfruits of the Promised Land. (Joshua 5:10-12)

Jesus was resurrected on that same date (Aviv 17).

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the FIRSTFRUITS of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20)

Since the Temple was destroyed in 70 CE, firstfruits sacrifices and offerings are no longer offered the same way they were in ancient times.

Historically on Aviv 17, the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea after leaving Egypt. The Egyptian army went into the Red Sea to attack the Children of Israel, but God caused the waters to drown the army and Pharaoh. Therefore, the Children of Israel emerged alive on the 17th, the same date as the resurrection. (This is also the same date Haman was hung in the book of Esther. The power of the resurrection defeats the enemy!)

Before the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, they secured the remains of Joseph on Aviv 15. (Exodus 13:19-20) An interesting parallel is that Jesus had been placed in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea on Aviv 15. (Matthew 27:59-60)

And Joseph said to his brethren, “I am dying; but God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to the land of which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.” Then Joseph took an oath from the Children of Israel, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.” (Genesis 50:24-25)

Why did Joseph ask them to take his bones with them? Hebrews 11 states that Joseph by faith had given the commandment that they take his bones when they left Egypt. I think he was looking forward to the resurrection. I believe he longed to be a part of that which was yet to come and he made provision to have his bones taken to the Promised Land because he saw what would take place in the future.

Following the resurrection of Jesus, the graves of many of the saints were opened and they went into the city and appeared to many people! When, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. (Matthew 27:51-53)

I wonder if Joseph was among those that were resurrected, along with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? (Abraham had secured his burial place in a cave a few miles south of Jerusalem before his death. According to Genesis 49:29-31, Abraham’s cave at Machpelah was where Abraham and Sarah were buried, along with Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah.)

What became of those who were resurrected at that time is a mystery.

Our faith is founded upon the foundational truth of the resurrection.

And if Jesus is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! (1 Corinthians 15:17)

We must believe in our hearts that Jesus has risen from the dead in order to obtain salvation.

If you confess with your mouth Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

HE IS RISEN. HE IS THE FIRSTFRUITS.

THE LUKE 4:18 MANDATE

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim LIBERTY to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at LIBERTY those who are oppressed…” (Luke 4:18)

Paul Cain was a great healing evangelist during the Latter Rain Revival. He died on February 12 this year at age 89.

The Latter Rain Revival began on February 12, 1948. We hosted Paul Cain the first time on February 12, 2007.

At that conference, he laid hands on and commissioned a young man named Joshua, symbolic of Moses commissioning the Joshua generation to go in and possess the land. He died 12 years later on the exact date and I found out that it was the same date Moses died on the Hebraic calendar (Adar 7).

Before Paul came in 2007, I read that it was on February 12, 1989, that Paul had stood in John Wimber’s pulpit the first time and announced that he was the beginning of the “new breed.” Paul had been told that his mother would not die until he stood before a “new breed” of ministry. His mother, Anna Cain, died the next year at age 105!

When Anna Cain was 45 yrs old, she was pregnant with Paul. She had four terminal diseases in her body, (tuberculous, heart disease, both breasts were cancerous, and she had three tumors in her womb). A doctor, a renowned cancer researcher, sent her home and said she would not live to deliver the child. One night after midnight, the angel of the Lord appeared by her bedside and laid his hand on her shoulder saying, “Daughter be of good cheer, you will live and not die! The child you bear is a male child, you shall name him Paul and he shall preach the gospel as did the apostle Paul, binding up the sickness and infirmities of My people, and he shall stand before kings and rulers of nations.”

She was completely healed, and Paul was born shortly after and was nursed on breasts that just weeks before had been eaten with cancer. He did preach the gospel like the apostle Paul, and he saw many healings and he did stand before kings and rulers of nations. He often ministered in a high level word of knowledge gift. Paul had been told by his mother, who was also a prophetess, that she would give him a significant prophetic word before she died. She then went into a coma for two months. When she came out of the coma, she prophesied to Paul “Luke 4:18 for you Paul and for the world.”

She died on April 18 (4/18) at 4:18 pm after giving him the scripture Luke 4:18!

On April 18, 2000, I spoke at a conference in South Africa called “Moving into the Apostolic.” I told the story of Paul’s mother dying on that date.

In 2002/2003, there were three conferences that were said to be a trilogy in Oregon, Idaho, and Louisiana. The third conference was on April 18 and was hosted in Shreveport by Pastor Timothy Carscadden. It was called “Restoring the Voice of Healing.” The story of Anna Cain was told at that event also and it was Passover. (In the Bible, Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt on Passover; and Joshua led the Children of Israel into the Promised Land during the season of Passover 40 years later.)

On April 18, 2007, Timothy Carscadden and I were invited to speak at an apostolic conference in South Africa. It was the only “apostolic conference” I have ever spoke at. It centered on strategy to possess the land. It rocked my world! It was seven years after my first trip to South Africa where I had spoke at the “Moving into the Apostolic” conference, and the same date of the “Restoring the Voice of Healing” conference that Timothy had hosted four years prior. Again, I told the story of Anna Cain.

On April 18, 2010, we hosted Paul Cain for a conference we called “The Luke 4:18 Mandate.” It was exactly 20 years after his mother’s death.

Prior to the event, Paul’s assistant (Alex) had a dream where he went to a change machine and put in a ten dollar bill and out came seven coins (Sacagawea dollars). When he woke up from the dream, he was holding the coins in his hand! He heard the Holy Spirit say “The message is in the coin, call Kari Browning.”

I found out that Alex had the dream on the same date that Patrick Henry said “Give me LIBERTY or give me death,” prior to the commencement of the Revolutionary War. The coins had LIBERTY written in big letters on them. Before Paul Cain came on April 18, I found out that Paul Revere made his midnight ride on April 18 and the Revolutionary War began the next day. We were called Revolution Church at the time!

Revolution means SUDDEN MOMENTOUS CHANGE.

Alex had gone to a “change machine” in his dream. We hosted a conference two weeks prior to the April 18 event that we called “Changing Church.”

The change, I believe will come through the Luke 4:18 mandate. We are being equipped to set at LIBERTY those who are oppressed and those who are held captive. I believe we are in a season where we will possess the promises of God. We will see even greater things than what was experienced in the Latter Rain Revival!

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim LIBERTY to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at LIBERTY those who are oppressed…” (Luke 4:18)

The Season of Our Freedom

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

Passover is known as the “The Season of our Freedom.”

It always begins on the evening of the 14th day of Aviv (also known as Nisan) on the Hebraic calendar, (which is Friday, April 19, this year on the Gregorian calendar). “The Lord’s Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.” (Leviticus 23:5)

It commemorates the time when God raised up Moses as a deliverer, and the Children of Israel were delivered from their bondage in Egypt and were set free to go to the Promised Land.

What many don’t know is that Passover is when the Children of Israel arrived in Israel exactly 40 years later!

On the 10th of Aviv, just over a month after Moses died, Joshua led the people in crossing the Jordan River on their way to the Holy Land. The dream of eight generations was finally being fulfilled. On the 14th of Aviv, they celebrated Passover in the Promised Land!

Prior to Passover, on the 11th of Aviv, God commanded Joshua to personally circumcise all the Jewish males at Gilgal because they hadn’t been circumcised in the desert. After this had been accomplished, God said “Today, I’ve rolled away the disgrace of Egypt from you.” They were told to stay there until everyone was healed.

Passover is one of the most commonly observed Jewish holidays, even by otherwise non-religious Jews. Each year the Jewish people celebrate the first night of this holiday with a Seder meal. The word Seder means “set order” as there are 15 steps to the meal that follow a specific order. A traditional Seder can take four or five hours.

Everything in the Passover Seder points to Jesus, who celebrated the Seder with His disciples the evening before His crucifixion, which is commonly called “The Last Supper.”

For 1,500 years before Messiah’s First Coming, the ritual of slaying lambs at Passover was conducted. Jesus fulfilled every detail of the mo’ed (appointment) as He was our Passover lamb.

He was crucified on the EXACT day, month, and hour that the High Priest would slay the lamb in the Temple.

Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things…but with the precious blood of Jesus, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. (1 Peter 1:18-19)

After the Temple was built, Jews traveled to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover as they were commanded. Jesus’ parents traveled to Jerusalem yearly to celebrate Passover. When Jesus was 12, He amazed the religious teachers with His understanding at this festival. (Luke 2:41-50)

Every household was to inspect the lamb for four days before Passover to make sure it was perfect in every way. Jesus entered Jerusalem four days before His crucifixion and was examined before the religious leaders who could not find a flaw in Him. (John 19:4)

In the temple, at 9:00 am on the 14th day of Aviv, a lamb was tied to the horns of the altar. This was the day and the hour that Jesus was nailed to the cross. (Mark 15:25)

At 3:00 pm, the High Priest would slit the lamb’s throat and say, “It is finished!” This is the same time that Jesus died with His last words being “It is finished.” (John 19:30)

In preparing the lamb for the Passover meal, the book of Exodus commanded that the bones of the lamb could not be broken. Jesus’ legs were not broken to hasten death as was the custom at crucifixion. (John 19:33)

In each home, they were instructed to roast the lambs on a wooden spit. The intestines were to be taken out and put around the lamb’s head. They called the lamb a crowned sacrifice.(The wooden spit resembled the cross that Jesus was crucified on while wearing a crown of thorns. This was hundreds of years before the Romans introduced crucifixion.)

At the Seder meal, they set a place for Elijah. John the Baptist was born at Passover and Jesus said, “And if you are willing to accept it, he (John) is the Elijah who was to come.” (Matthew 11:14)

Coincidence? I don’t think so!

Jesus died as the Passover lamb to purchase our freedom. He was the Lamb that was, the Lamb that is, and the Lamb that is to come!

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)

The Land Remembers

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words, Uncategorized

I am writing this blog from Germany where I am facilitating a seminar on “Releasing Toxic Emotions.” The technique I use involves the use of essential oils and I believe it is the restoration of James 5:14-16 from the Bible. It is a lost art that is being restored.

At my seminars, I show a video clip from a movie entitled “The Vision,” about the life of Hildegard von Bingham. Hildegard lived in Germany in the 1100’s. She was a Catholic nun who saw open visions, heard the audible voice of God, and worked miracles. She practiced and taught natural healing remedies, including music therapy, herbal treatments, and the use of dirt and stones to heal people. Her healing techniques were rooted in Scripture. Although she challenged the religious establishment of her day, the Catholic Church made her a Saint and named her as a Doctor of the Church. Her writings and teachings are still used today in the modern naturopathic world.

In Germany, over the years, natural medicine has been very well accepted. Many German physicians are experienced in using herbal medicines and other natural therapies. My naturopathic doctor traveled from the United States to Germany to be trained in different healing modalities and to buy some of her machines. I know several well-known ministers who have come to Germany and have been healed through the use of natural medicine at a Christian wellness center. I also have a friend, who is a medical doctor in South Africa, that came to Germany to be healed through “energy medicine” after she had exhausted everything medically available in her own country. She is now incorporating energy medicine techniques into her medical practice in South Africa.

Viva la Renaissance

The Renaissance was a period of time that began in the 14th century in Florence, Italy. It was marked by huge breakthroughs in the arts and in science.

Numerous scientists, artists, poets, and writers flourished during the Renaissance period, including William Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Galileo, among many others.

During this time, the printing press was invented in Germany. I recently visited Mainz, where Johannes Gutenberg was born in 1398. In the mid-1400’s, Gutenberg invented the printing press. He created the printing press in order to spread the Holy Bible in a more efficient manner. In the Middle Ages, there were very few books. The books that existed nearly all belonged to churches or universities, or to very rich people. They were written by hand and often had beautiful hand-painted pictures. They were so expensive that most people could not own them. Even if an ordinary person went to a church and looked at books there, they could not read them because they were mostly written in Latin. With the invention of the printing press, suddenly knowledge became available to thousands of people who never had it before.

It was also during the time of the Renaissance that the Protestant Reformation occurred. Martin Luther became an ordained priest in 1507 in the Roman Catholic Church in Germany. He had a revelation that salvation came through faith alone and not by works. He rejected several practices of the Catholic Church, including the practice of indulgences. On October 31, 1517, he defiantly nailed a copy of his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church and sparked the Protestant Reformation.

It was also during the time of the Renaissance, that the New World was discovered.

THE LAND REMEMBERS

In 2010, we changed the name of our church from “Revolution Church” to “New Renaissance.” In 2012, we transitioned from being a traditional church to being a Healing and Creativity Center. We started experimenting with natural healing methods such as light therapy, sound therapy, and essential oils. It was during this time that I developed the technique I use to help people release toxic emotions using essential oils.

In March 2013, a young man named Jacob came to Coeur d’Alene to do a promotional video for a conference that I was going to speak at in Southern Idaho. Jacob was an expert on Idaho history. He told me a story that left me in awe.

He told me that in the 1800’s, an Italian Jesuit priest, named Father Anthony J. Ravalli, came to the Coeur d’Alene area from Italy to reach the Native Americans and to start a “new renaissance.” He built the Cataldo Mission, the oldest building in Idaho.

Anthony Ravalli was born in 1812 in a vibrant Renaissance city in Italy’s northern Emilia Romagna region. We established a Reggio-Emilia inspired preschool before I heard this story. The Reggio-Emilia model of education was founded near the area of Father Ravalli’s birth.

Father Ravalli was an artist, spiritual guide, sculptor, architect, builder, physician, pharmacist, and surgeon. He traveled miles to heal both body and soul of anyone who needed his help. He was known as the “Renaissance Man!”

When I heard this story, I was overwhelmed with such a sense of purpose and destiny. I realized “the land remembers” and we were continuing in Father Ravalli’s footsteps.

I believe we are in a time where we are seeing an EXPLOSION in the areas of art, science, and exploration much like what happened during the original Renaissance period. It is such an exciting time to be alive!

Tribal Identity

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words, Uncategorized

We have a God-given desire to be a part of a “clan” and to be a part of a family. Psalms 68:6 says: “God sets the lonely in families.”

There were twelve tribes of Israel. Although they were all part of one nation, each tribe had unique characteristics. Each tribe was blessed by Jacob and later by Moses. Each tribe received a different blessing in accordance with their individual purpose.

The High Priest wore a breastplate that was decorated with 12 precious stones. Each stone bore the name of one of the tribes. There were two shoulder straps that each had a stone with the names of six tribes engraved on each.

When traveling through the desert on their way to the Promised Land, they would travel and camp in a precise formation. The Tabernacle would be in the middle of the formation, while the twelve tribes would form a square surrounding it from all four sides, with three tribes on each side. The Levites would camp in the center, as it was their duty to assemble, disassemble and transport the Tabernacle.

Together they possessed the Promised Land and each received their portion. 

We are going to be drawn to, and choose to identify with, different expressions in the Body of Christ. It is wonderful to find people who “speak our language” and who really understand us. 

Perhaps you will identify with a “tribe” that is focused on grace and mercy, or faith, or prayer and contemplation, or evangelism, or spiritual warfare, or social justice, or prophetic ministry, or ascension and the mystical realm, or inner healing, or our Jewish roots, or teaching the Bible verse-by-verse, or revival and “signs and wonders.” 

The “Cluster” Anointing

In 1998before starting a regional training centerI was given three prophetic words about having the “cluster anointing.” (The late Jill Austin gave me one of those words.) Later, I read that when the spies went into the Promised Land and brought back a big cluster of grapes, the place they found the grapes was called the Valley of Eshcol. The footnote in my Bible said that Eshcol means “cluster.” 

Then they came to the Valley of Eshcol, and there cut down a branch with one cluster of grapes; they carried it between two of them on a pole. (Numbers 13:23)

In 1994, after moving to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on February 12, both my husband and I saw a vision of a white house with a turret. In 1997, a friend of mine (whose birthday is February 12) and I both had a similar dream the same night. We dreamed of a white Victorian house with a porch in front. 

I had bought a book entitled “Radiant Glory.” After the vision of the house with a turret, the dream about the Victorian house, and three prophetic words about having the “cluster anointing,” I opened the book at random and saw a picture of the house we saw in the vision and in the dream. I was absolutely astonished when I read that it was on Eshcol Avenue (“cluster”) and it was on page 212 (February 12).

The book is about the life of Martha Wing Robinson. It is a biography of a relatively unknown woman who lived at the turn of the 20th century. She was healed of several illnesses under the ministry of John Alexander Dowie.

Mrs. Robinson was granted unusual access to the “mysteries of God.” Her teaching was accompanied by powerful demonstrations of all the gifts of the Holy Spirit. She established three “faith homes” in Zion City, Illinois. Thousands came from around the world to the homes in Zion City for teaching and prayer. Healings were a regular occurrence. Martha had a very strong gift of discernment and regularly told people the secrets of their hearts. She often had directive prophetic words for those who came. Many young people came to the home for training and then went to the mission field.

I have been to Zion City, Illinois, on two occasions and was able to visit the house on Eshcol Avenue!

“The New Wine is in the Cluster”

A woman who was living in another country, and who did not know about the prophetic words regarding the “cluster anointing,” was directed to make a beautiful banner that read “The new wine is in the cluster.” After spending months making it, the Holy Spirit told her it was for me! 

At our regional training center, we had a different speaker from a different “tribe” every week for five years. Sometimes the speakers would contradict each other from week-to-week and I would say “the views expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of Grace Training Center.” I encouraged those who attended to be like the Bereans in Acts 17:11: “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”

Although we will identify with a certain “tribe,” it is always good to get out of our comfort zone and cross-pollinate with other expressions. We need each other.

THE NEW WINE IS IN THE CLUSTER!

Passion and Power of Pentecost

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

John Paul Jackson once prophesied that God was going to restore “the passion of Pentecost” to the Church through a massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

John G. Lake was told to pray for this when he had an angelic visitation in 1920. The angel took the Bible and opened to the book of Acts. He called attention to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and then proceeded through the book pointing out the great and outstanding revelations and phenomena in it. Then the angel spoke these words:

“This is Pentecost as God gave it through the heart of Jesus. Strive for this. Contend for this. Teach the people to pray for this. For this, and this alone, will meet the necessity of the human heart, and this alone will have the power to overcome the forces of darkness.”

The Biblical Festival of Shavuot (Pentecost)

The date of the Giving of the Law in Exodus, and the date of Pentecost in Acts 2, were the same date. Both of these events took place on the Biblical festival of Shavuot about 1,500 years apart and the same phenomena happened at both.

After the Jews left Egypt, Moses was told by God to gather the Israelites together at Mount Sinai to receive the Torah. They were told to sanctify themselves for three days. The entire people (three million) heard God speak. He didn’t just appear to Moses and give him the Ten Commandments in private.

We are told in Exodus 19:16-19 that on the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick dark cloud over the mountain, and they heard a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone trembled as they stood at the foot of the mountain and the mountain shook.

We are told by Rabbi Hertz, in the authorized Daily Prayer Book, page 791, that the entire world heard the voice of God at Sinai. The Divine voice divided itself into the 70 tongues then spoken on the earth.

We are told by Rabbi Moshe Weissman, in his book The Midrash Says, that the children of Israel not only heard the Lord’s Voice, but they actually saw the sound waves as they emerged from the Lord’s mouth. They visualized them as a fiery substance.

In Acts 2, we read when the day of Pentecost came that they were all together in one accord when they heard the sound of a mighty rushing wind and saw what seemed like “tongues of fire.” They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and started speaking in other tongues. There were Jews from every nation and they all heard the sound in their own language.

Peter stood and prophesied this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

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. ~Acts 2:17-18

After Peter’s sermon, 3,000 were saved and baptized. After the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai, 3,000 were killed in a plague after forming a golden calf to worship while Moses was up on the mountain for 40 days.

He has made us competent as ministers of a New Covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. ~ 2 Corinthians 3:6

On Shavuot in ancient Israel, two loaves of bread were waved before the Lord and the book of Ruth was read. Ruth was a Gentile convert to Judaism and was the great-grandmother of King David who, according to Jewish tradition, was born on Shavuot, and died on Shavuot. It is believed that the two loaves represent the Jewish and Gentile believers in Messiah.

For He himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. ~Ephesians 2:14-16

A Solemn Warning

“A body that seeks a corporate Pentecost must go through a burning and a purging according to Matthew 3:11.” ~ R Loren Sandford

I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. ~ Matthew 3:11

In the first century, Rabbi Akiva became the greatest rabbi of his generation with 24,000 students. He had 12,000 pairs of disciples and they all died between Passover and Shavuot from a God-sent plague. The reason given was because they did not treat each other with respect.

In 2002/2003, there were three conferences that were said to be a trilogy. At the first one, entitled “From Proclamation to Demonstration,” in Albany, Oregon, an angelic visitor appeared to Bob Jones with an important message for those seeking to witness creative miracles and 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) 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. He 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.

Prior to the second conference in the trilogy series, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, entitled “Revelation Glory,” Bob Jones was given a clear vision. Paul Keith Davis said that he had never heard Bob as enthusiastic as he was in sharing this revelation. The vision began with him seeing a spiritual hourglass. He watched as the sand elapsed from the hourglass and it was clearly communicated that the time had now come for divine purposes to be established in the Pacific Northwest, “the land of beauty.” The Lord’s purpose was to establish BEAUTY and UNITY, but he also saw the enemy’s strategy. He saw “cyclone fences” that represented OFFENSES that would separate people.

The third conference in the series was in Shreveport, Louisiana, entitled “Restoring the Voice of Healing.” That was a term associated with the Latter Rain Revival. Years ago, I read a transcript from a meeting where Bob Jones said if we wanted to experience what they had in the Latter Rain Revival, the condition was Psalms 15. This passage of Scripture warns us not to cast a slur on our fellow man.

A Sign in the Heavens

In 2006, the same speakers returned to Coeur d’Alene (Bob Jones, Ray Hughes, Bobby Connor, Paul Keith Davis, Shawn Bolz, and Noel Alexander), along with the Albany and Shreveport pastors (Denny Cline and Timothy Carscadden) and we hosted an event we called “It’s Time, Releasing Apostolic Power.” At that event, Bob Jones prophesied that the heavens opened when a Native American man danced in full regalia to Jason Upton’s song “We are One in the Spirit.” He said there would be a sign in the heavens to confirm it. On PENTECOST weekend, a FIRE RAINBOW appeared that was so rare that it made international news.

This year Passover is from April 19-27, 2019. Shavuot (Pentecost) is 50 days later on June 9. (The time between these two festivals is called “the counting of the Omer.”) I encourage us to fast all negative talk and put away the “pointing of the finger,” as it tells us to do in Isaiah 58, so that our light and healing will come. Let’s purpose in our hearts to genuinely love and honor one another so that we can experience the PASSION AND POWER OF PENTECOST!

It’s Time for Apostolic Power

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

JOHN G. LAKE 

John G. Lake was a man who represented true apostolic ministry and power. In this new apostolic era, many will operate in the same gifting and will have similar faith.

John G. Lake’s healing/preaching ministry spanned the years 1898 until his death in 1935. (He is buried in Spokane, Washington.) He was born in Ontario, Canada, in 1870. His family moved to the United States, where he grew up and was one of 17 children. He was born sickly, as were a number of his brothers and sisters; eight of whom died when Lake was just a young boy. 

He became acquainted with the healing ministry of Alexander Dowie out of necessity. He had gone to Dowie’s “healing home” in Zion, Illinois, where he was healed instantly of a condition he had since his youth. 

Over the years, he took several members of his family to Dowie’s “healing home” in Zion City to be healed. He married Jennie Stevens, who was diagnosed with tuberculosis and heart disease two years into their marriage. She was also healed through Dowie’s ministry.

Lake was a wealthy businessman, but could hardly focus on his business because of the desire to preach rather than sell insurance. In 1907, he gave everything away and started evangelistic work, being absolutely dependent on the Lord.

He went to South Africa in 1908 and planted over 600 churches and saw thousands saved, healed, and delivered during the five years he was there. John G. Lake was known as “God’s Apostle to Africa.” 

Later, he moved to Spokane, Washington, where he had such an incredible healing ministry that the U.S. Government declared Spokane to be the healthiest city in America. During five years of ministry in the Spokane area, there were 100,000 documented cases of healing. He later moved to Portland, Oregon, and established a ministry there.

RE-DIGGING THE WELL OF JOHN G. LAKE 

I was in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2001. I was ministering at one of the Apostolic Faith churches that John G. Lake had established. On Saturday evening, April 28, I felt impressed to speak the next morning on “re-digging the well of John G. Lake.” After the message, we symbolically took shovels and did a prophetic act of re-digging that healing well.

On the very same date six years later, April 28, 2007, I was in Cape Town, South Africa, where I was speaking at a Vineyard church. The couple who came to pick me up for the evening service had just become the newly appointed directors of the recently formed Healing Rooms in South Africa!  It was exactly six years to the day that I had been impressed to share the message of re-digging the well of John G. Lake!

Michael Howard, author of Tales of a South African Intercessor, wrote:

 I never forget a place where I have moved. My presence always hovers in places of previous revivals and I always look for a vessel that will be an instrument whereby I will be enabled to pour out again even in the same place.”

JOHN G. LAKE  “ROOKERY BUILDING” SHAKEN

In June 2001, Shawn Bolz had an OPEN VISION of geologists and seismologists being sent to the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene area because there had been earthquakes and there was a lot of underground activity going on.

He heard an AUDIBLE VOICE say:

“There is an undercurrent of my power in the Northwest that is about to EXPLODE forth in signs and wonders, healings, and power! I am shaking everything that can be shaken in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and up into Canada. There is a release of my power that will come there, then EXPLODE forth all over the nation.”

Shawn prophesied that there was a volcano of God’s power that would explode in the Northwest and groups all over the earth would be affected by it. He also saw a great bon fire, which he believed represented the move of the Spirit and there were many tents camped around the bon fire. The tents were all very close together and their tent pegs were overlapping because each group wanted to be right in front of the fire. Shawn said that this represented unity and a promise that God is not bringing this move of His Spirit to only one ministry or group, but His desire is that ministries would carry the fire together. It was a corporate invitation.

He sent the prophetic word to some leaders in our area. I read it aloud in our Bible School on June 24, 2001, in the RESURRECTION GOSPEL class, that was being held at the Rookery Building in Spokane. (This was the original John G. Lake building where Cal Pierce had re-opened the John G. Lake healing rooms.)

The next day, (June 25, 2001), there were three earthquakes! People who lived close by said it sounded like an EXPLOSION. The local news reported outside the Rookery Building the day after I read the prophecy in that building. (The sidewalk collapsed under the building and it was eventually torn down and the Healing Rooms moved to their current location.)

About a week later, I turned on the local news and I heard them report that geologists and seismologists were being sent over from the Seattle area because of all the underground activity going on. The exact words in the prophecy I had read!

We had about 100 small earthquakes that year. It was reported on the Pacific NW Seismic Network site: “We’ve found no report of a previous earthquake in the 120 years Spokane had been inhabited. The events eventually stopped. To this day, we do not know exactly what process triggered the action.”

TRANSFERENCE OF POWER AND AUTHORITY

GOD, I’ve heard what our ancestors say about you, and I’m stopped in my tracks, down on my knees. Do among us what you did among them. (Habakkuk 3:2 Message)

In 2003, we hosted a conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where Bob Jones saw a vision of Ray Kirschke. In the vision, he saw two “quitclaim deeds” being signed by Ray, who was the last living disciple of John G. Lake.

A quitclaim deed is a legal document that conveys the full rights of ownership from one party to another. This was to illustrate the transference of ownership, from one generation to the next, of the deposit of spiritual power and authority demonstrated in the prior generation.

After Bob’s vision, I was able to contact Ray Kirschke and he agreed to attend the meeting that evening.  Ray prayed a blessing and released all that was deposited and resident in him from the prior generation and transferred the promise to this generation.

IT’S TIME!

On May 5, 2005, Danny Steyne (who is originally from South Africa) arrived in Coeur d’Alene and spoke at some meetings. On May 7, he was speaking at the Healing Rooms in Spokane. In prayer before the meeting, I saw a vision of John G. Lake hand Danny a pocket watch and I heard the words “it’s time.” The next morning (Mother’s Day), Danny was speaking at our church. Prior to that service, my daughter-in-law Katieann Browning saw a vision of Danny taking a pocket watch out of his pocket and heard “it’s time.” (She wasn’t aware of my vision the night before.)

That same morning, May 8, 2005, Bob Jones had a dream that he was given a watch. After telling Rick Joyner the dream on the way to church that day, Bob’s watch fell off his wrist during the church service. Someone came over and put a new Rolex watch on his wrist. 

The same day Bob Jones was given a new watch in North Carolina, Danny Steyne was given a new watch in Idaho. I bought Danny a pocket watch and he had it inscribed later with the words “It is Time.”

Todd Bentley had a visitation on May 8, 2005. He was told that the “kingly anointing” would begin on Mother’s Day. He understood that to be the apostolic ministry. He heard the Lord speak  to him audibly “Acts 5:12 begins today.” (“And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people.” Acts 5:12)

The date I saw the vision of John G. Lake give Danny the pocket watch (May 7) was the same date William Branham had been commissioned to the healing ministry by an angel in 1946. It was also the date that Mike Bickle and the Church in Kansas City began a 21-day water fast for revival in 1983. Bob Jones had declared that a comet would come on the day the fast began, unpredicted by scientists, to be a sign that revival would surely come. The comet appeared on May 7, 1983, as they began the fast. They thought revival would break forth immediately, but Bob had a dream on the last day of the fast and told Mike Bickle the following: 

“The Lord spoke to me in a dream last night and told me that He is not going to break loose in the revival in the way that we all thought. God never said that it would begin after the fast. We only assumed it would. The Lord says ‘No! There is an appointed time and appointed season for America, and when the Lord says IT’S TIME, it will not be one day late.’”

Danny Steyne is hosting THE GREATEST AWAKENING on May 8, 2019. (Randy Demain, who was assigned an angel named “Breakthrough Revival,” will be ministering along with others.) I realized that THE GREATEST AWAKENING conference starts 14 years to the date that I gave Danny the pocket watch. (It is also Mother’s Day weekend. The Holy Spirit was poured out in John Wimber’s church with Lonnie Frisbee on Mother’s Day 1980. Danny was greatly impacted by that and had a powerful dream about John Wimber that I reference in my article “The Appointed Time Has Come”:  http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=21695.) 

In April 2011, Mary M Dorian saw a vision where I was given a gold watch and I would know the time. She felt it had something to do with the month of May. She also saw a vision of a rainbow and each color of the rainbow represented a promise that God was going to fulfill. 

Some have grown weary and disillusioned as they have waited for promises to be fulfilled. I believe we have entered a new season where we will see an increase in apostolic power – the same power that John G. Lake had. 

Truly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and wonders and mighty deeds. (2 Corinthians 12:12)

I BOLDY DECLARE TO YOU THIS DAY, IT’S TIME! 

Celtic Connections

Kari BrowningBlog, Prophetic Words

SAINT PATRICK AND SIGNS AND WONDERS

St. Patrick became a legend because of the extraordinary miracles that took place in his ministry. He had been kidnapped by pirates as a young man and taken from England to Ireland. During that time, he became a slave to a Druid high priest. He came to love his captors and learned their language and culture. He prayed continually and had an angelic visitation after six years of being held captive in Ireland. The angel instructed him to walk 200 miles, where there would be a ship ready to take him back to England. Upon arriving home, he was visited by the angel Victor. Victor held letters from the Irish requesting Patrick to come back and walk among them.

SAINT PATRICK RAISED THE DEAD

After many years of personal preparation, Patrick returned to Ireland. Upon his arrival, the King of Dublin asked Patrick to pray for his two children who had just died. One had drowned and one died of sickness. After Patrick’s prayer, they both were miraculously raised from the dead! The King was so grateful that he gave Patrick and his companions safe passage throughout Ireland.

Patrick challenged the Druids to power encounters on several occasions, much like the prophet Elijah did with the prophets of Baal. Patrick preached and demonstrated the resurrection power of the Risen Christ wherever he went.

THE CELTIC CROSS

Another story is told about the origin of the Celtic cross. The Druids would mark their territory with a circle. Patrick would draw the cross over the circle, as a reminder that the power of the cross was greater than the power of the enemy.

After telling Patrick’s story at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at our church (complete with corn beef and cabbage and Irish dancers), I had an unusual experience a few days later. Our church had a coffee shop that was open to the public during the week. A man dressed all in black came in to the coffee shop and told me he was a practicing Druid. Full of faith, I cast some demons out of him and he started attending our church!

ST. PATRICK’S DAY AND LONNIE FRISBEE

We honor St. Patrick around the world on the day of his death, March 17. Lonnie Frisbee, the hippie preacher who was the catalyst for the “Jesus Movement” that took place in the 60’s and 70’s, was buried on St. Patrick’s Day. I see similarities between Lonnie and St. Patrick, even though they lived centuries apart. Both were evangelists who led many to Christ through signs, wonders, and miracles. St. Patrick reached the Druids who were considered to be the barbarians of his day. Along with amazing power encounters, St. Patrick evangelized by establishing communities and using native art forms to reach those others thought could not be reached. Lonnie Frisbee evangelized the hippies, who many thought could not be evangelized, and used similar methods as St. Patrick. Both were misunderstood and suffered rejection by the mainstream Church of their day.

“I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.” 1 Corinthians 9:22

A PERSONAL STORY

I have had a fascination with the life of St. Patrick because my mother (Patricia Ann King) was named after him and she died on St. Patrick’s Day in 2005. When she died, I was given her green coat that I jokingly referred to as my “St. Patrick’s mantle.” In 2007, I was in New Mexico speaking at a conference at Glorybound Ministries with Paul Cain, Randy DeMain, and Cal Pierce. Steven Brooks, who wrote a book on recovering lost mantles, attended a session of the conference and was invited into the hospitality room. Before I even had a chance to introduce myself to him, he prophesied to me that I had “St. Patrick’s mantle.”

I went to Ireland in 2009 and visited Dublin and Belfast. While in Dublin, I visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral; and while in Belfast, I visited St. Patrick’s grave and museum. This year (2019), I will be arriving in Bangor, Ireland, on my mother’s birthdate (March 25).

ANGELIC ENCOUNTERS

We hosted a conference the weekend of July 17, 2010, with Randy DeMain, that we called “Angelic Encounters.” While the worship team was playing flutes and a penny whistle, I felt the presence of an angel enter the room. I sensed it was “Victor,” the angel who had been with St. Patrick. I shared that revelation publicly and then Randy DeMain shared that the Holy Spirit told him that the angel “Emma” had Irish roots. (Emma was an angel that appeared to Randy at our Northwest Revival Fire conference on April 14, 2006.)

I felt an affirmation about Emma being associated with Ireland because it was on St. Patrick’s Day weekend that I met Jeff Jansen and Ivan Roman in Topeka, Kansas, in 2006. I saw them sitting in the hotel restaurant and I introduced myself. We had never met before. After shaking my hand, Jeff told me that (although he was in Topeka) he kept hearing “Coeur d’Alene” (where I live) and prophesied to me that Emma was coming and “she brings the gold.” Few people would know about Emma, but I did! I was very familiar with the prophetic history of Mike Bickle and the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. In the early days of that ministry, Bob Jones said Emma was a “mothering angel” and that she helped establish that ministry.

It was also Mike Bickle’s birthday (July 17) in 2010 when Randy shared that Emma was associated with Ireland. And it was Ivan Roman’s birthday when she appeared to Randy on April 14, 2006, while he was preaching at our Northwest Revival Fire conference. It was the 100 year anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival and I had been seeing the number “414” for years. Randy was preaching out of Judges 6 when he saw Emma with his open eyes. (Judges 6, about Gideon, was the passage of Scripture that had been my first text, and Mike Bickle’s first text, when we started our respective churches.)

I remembered that Bangor, Ireland, was the site of the longest known 24/7 prayer movement in church history. It lasted for over 200 years and it released a wave of God’s power accompanied by signs and wonders. St. Patrick and his companions arrived in Bangor and saw a heavenly light and heard a celestial choir. St. Patrick called it the “Valley of Angels.” After his death, a famous monastery was built there by Comgall in 555 AD. Comgall, and the monks of Bangor, also raised the dead and experienced signs and wonders. Patrick prophesied of Comgall’s birth and ministry sixty years prior to him being born. Bangor was respected throughout Europe as a great center of learning and a place of great light.

If that wasn’t enough to convince me that Emma was associated with Ireland, Mike McClung (a pastor from Tennessee) called me a couple days after the Angelic Encounters conference in 2010. When I told him this story, he said his birthday was St. Patrick’s Day and Mike Bickle had given him a copy of his favorite book entitled “Bangor, the Light of the World.” I met Mike McClung in 2003 after we connected concerning our common Irish/Cherokee heritage. (William Branham, who was the catalyst for the Latter Rain Revival, was Irish and Cherokee, and Bob Jones was also Irish and Cherokee.)

Fast forward to 2019. I was talking to a new friend, Thomas, and I told him the Emma story. He then told me that his birthday is July 17 (same as Mike Bickle’s) and his wife’s birthday is St. Patrick’s Day! Amazed, and since I was already planning a trip to the United Kingdom, I made arrangements to go to Bangor. I arrive on March 25 this year, my mother’s birthdate. I’ll be visiting Downpatrick where St. Patrick started his first church and I’ll also be visiting the places where he had many of his power encounters.

THIN PLACES

The Celts talked of “thin places.” These were places where the veil between the natural and spiritual was almost transparent and a strong sense of the presence of God could be discerned. Bangor, Ireland, is “a thin place.” I look forward to the adventure that awaits me when I arrive there.

Releasing Toxic Emotions Seminar ~ Cheshire, UK

Kari BrowningEvents

7.30 pm, Friday, April 5th, 2019
Carrington Lane Methodist Church, Ennerdale Drive, Cheshire M33 5PL 
(Car parking on nearby streets and at Greenbank Rd pay & display car park M33 5PL)



When our body is vibrating at its optimum frequency, we are in a state of health. When our frequency is lowered due to stress, toxins, and trapped emotions, different parts of our body become disharmonious and we enter into a diseased state.

Toxic emotions are oftentimes the source of emotional pain, relational difficulties, and physical illness.

By releasing toxic emotions, you will come into a place of rest for your soul and health for your body. The technique taught to release toxic emotions involves prayer, the laying on of hands, and the use of therapeutic-grade essential oils.

  • How early childhood trauma affects us as adults.

  • Learning how to turn off the stress response–dealing with fight, flight freeze survival patterns.

  • Healing our pain by releasing toxic emotions.

  • Healing generational trauma and breaking generational patterns.

  • How to go to a deep place of forgiveness toward yourself and others.

  • Learning to love yourself and practice self-care.

  • Rewiring your brain for joy.

There is no charge for this event. We do, however, encourage you to come prepared with money to trade and invest into Kari in her ministry.
We have trading baskets available throughout the evening so when your spirit resonates with the truth and revelation that Kari shares you can sow financial seed by faith into that truth, to see it grow in her life and your own.
