The Prophetic Hiding Place of the Pacific Northwest
A Tribulation Refuge Area
“XX” recently wrote: Oh! My face “fell” though when I saw where you are…………WHY are there SO many Messianic Israel congregations in the Pacific Northwest? You are so blest by YAH beyond compare up there…but then…I guess you know that?
That is a very good question and it requires a bit of response: Since I came here over twenty years ago, I have often thought about why my attention had been drawn to the Pacific Northwest since even before I was converted 51 years ago. It was because of faith that I came here when the Ruach used the verses in Beresheit 12:1-3 to prompt me to go.
Beresheit 12:1 Now YHWH had said unto Abram, “Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee…”
This was the answer I had wanted to hear in direct response to my prayers at the time about Revelation 12:6 and now I can say unequivocally, that all the chapter 12’s in the scriptures have a common theme running through them. Let me further state that the land here is quite spectacular, to say the least, so much so that it is a favorite destination for many a European and Asian traveller.
There is a river here that is the most powerful river system in North America, the Columbia, which is a Latin word that means ‘dove’, a type of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). There is a story in the land here and in the names of the features it holds. Down in Idaho, there is a river called the Clearwater which might bring up memories in many peoples minds of the sixties rock group Credence Clearwater Revival, a band noted for its many songs with prophetic overtures about the end times. What ‘Clearwater’ suggests is the written word, the scriptures, as in the waSHINg of the water with the word that husbands should do for their wives. We lived 65 miles up the Clearwater River on the edge of the Bitterroot wilderness. The Clearwater River flows just north of Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, WA from out of the Bitterroot/Selway wilderness; the largest wilderness in the lower 48 states. They are separated by the Snake River, which arises in the eastern wilderness of Idaho and coils around until it reaches Hell’s Canyon, which is the deepest gorge in North America (over 7,000 feet, so deep it looks like a bottomless pit from Heaven’s Gate) on one side of which is a lookout called ‘Heaven’s Gate’ and on the other a mountain range called ‘Seven Devils’. The Snake comes out of Hell’s Canyon flowing due north, quite unusual for most rivers in the northern hemisphere, until it passes through Hell’s Gate which is the mouth of the Snake River at Anatone, WA just south of Clarkston, WA.
At Lewiston, Idaho, the Snake overpowers the Clearwater while making a right angle turn at the place the Native Americans called the Tseminicum. This is a parable about how evil spirits can twist and pervert the meaning of scripture from the pulpit, when the Snake perverts and overpowers the Clearwater, the pulpit symbolized by Lewiston (city of the Levites). I have never lived in a place where the word was more twisted than in Lewiston-Clarkston area, but I don’t think they have exclusivity in this practice and surely I have not been everywhere. Downriver at the Tri-cities (Richland-Pasco-Kennewick), the Columbia (the Dove), overpowers the Snake until it reaches the Pacific (Shalom) Ocean.
I know this kind of analogy and metaphor drives those who have yet to sanctify their intellect crazy, but there is much more that can be said about this topic. Let me continue with this: There are only two places in the Book of the Revelation of Yeshua HaMoshiach where the phrase in the wilderness is found and both refer to the respective location of two Women, which is a metaphor for a spiritual people. The Woman Israel goes to her place, which is prepared for her in the wilderness. Traditionally, prophetically, and historically, this phrase ‘in the wilderness’ refers to the whereabouts of the Woman Israel wherever it is
found in scripture. The Tribes of Israel have migrated to the North and to the West according to the Prophecy that says ‘with the horns [power] of an ox’. [Psalms 92:10]. A wilderness is NOT a desert place, but is a place of uncultivated lands. It is also a metaphor for a place of uncultivated minds.
Deuteronomy 33:17 “His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of a wild ox: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh [the “LOST” tribes]. “
These two sons of Yoseph encamped at the west end of the Tabernacle (Mishkan) in the wilderness, under the ensign of an ox, which animal symbolizes the holder of the Birthright and the Power Blessing, which included with it the most productive grain producing areas of the earth, and the cattle that could be raised from that abundance. Our Camas prairie in Idaho meets these criteria. They also were closest to the Holy of Holies where the presence, the Shekinah, was strongest. But if they wanted to enter in to the sanctuary, they had to go all the way to the opposite end of the tabernacle in the wilderness where the Tribe of Y’hudah who honored the Torah, was encamped under the ensign of a Lion, where the only Door opening into the sanctuary was to be found.
The other woman rides a scarlet Beast that has seven heads and ten horns. She too, is described as being in the wilderness.
I have noticed that there is a one-for-one correspondence between the Western United States and Eretz Israel. On the coasts they have great ocean ports like Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland, and in Israel there was Byblos and Tyre and Sidon. Great trees were found on the western slopes of the coastal mountain ranges like the Cedars and Algum of Lebanon, and here in the Pacific Northwest there are Redwood, Sequoia, and Douglas fir. They had the perverse cities of the Canaanites; we have cities of luxury and perversion from San Francisco, named for a canonized Roman Catholic homosexual, to the San Fernando Valley, where more porn movies are produced for sale than anywhere else in the world. Further down the coast from Israel, and not all that far away; one finds Egypt, which filled the then, known world with idolatry and immorality. We have Los Angeles, the City of (fallen) Angels, the Watchers, that fills the world with visual idolatry, perversion, and mayhem. Across the desert to the north east there are cities of licensed gambling and prostitution (Vegas, Reno) and in ancient times in Israel one would find cities like Sodom and Gomorrah. There is an Inland Dead Sea in Israel and a Great Salt Lake here in Mormon dominated Utah to the east of which one finds places like Ammon, Idaho and Moab, Utah. Mormonism is called the American Islam for a reason! There are 4 books of Nephi in the book of Mormon, and all are referring to the Nephi-lim of Genesis 6.
More Egyptian red lentils are grown on the Palouse Prairie just south of (Spokane), than anywhere else in the world: that plant is the variety avinu Ya’akov that fed Esav when the birthright was sold for a mess of pottage. Myrtle (Heb. Hadassah, Esther) trees, one of the varieties used in making Sukkot (tabernacles), are native to two places on earth: Oregon and Israel. Within the last ten years WaSHINgton has become one of the premier wine producing areas (be careful; there is still a lot of rattlesnakes in them vineyards) in the world and has the second largest farm economy in the nation just behind California and BIGGER THAN TEXAS with over 440 varieties of food plants grown and marketed. At last measurement Mount Rainier was 14,410 ft. tall.
When one crosses the Continental Divide going east, the land drops increasingly until one reaches the Mississippi River, which is like a giant gutter in the Midwest and the drain of the whole continent, and at the bottom of which all the scum collects in New Orleans. Cajuns, short for Accadians, are an ancient folk who always lived at the mouth of rivers and feasted on the broth of pagan food abominations and practiced vile voodoo superstitions. Their peoples migrated before they were in Louisiana from the mouth of the St. Lawrence in Canada, and before that from Marseille, France, again at the mouth of a river, and before that from Greece in a similarly situated location, and before that from Akkadia in ancient Babylon. The land between the rivers, Mesopotamia, hosted the cities of the plain, which were walled cities. Mishpatami means ‘the people of my judgment’. The difference between the huge cities of ancient Sumeria: Erek, Akkad, Calneh, Nineveh, Urartu, Babylon etc. and the megalopoli of the United [Untied] States: New York City, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Cincinnati, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Chattanooga-Cleveland, Memphis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Birmingham, etc., etc., etc., is that here we have the land of unwalled cities. I think it was David Wilkerson (confirmation?) who made known that all the ships (churches?) that come in from the Atlantic at New York, must line up first with Babylon, New York. New York always was the trend setting city in the U.S. of A, anyway.
The Salish first nations rooted word; “OKANOGAN” means Rendevous or place of meeting or of coming together. It also is a place of refuge for the remnant-confederated tribes of Indians, as a homogenous set-apart people escaping from persecution.
When YHWH judges his nations, he divides them: Israel, Germany, USA, etc. When He judges this nation a malach (an angel) will smite this land on the New Madrid Fault near Cape Girardeau, Missouri (best known for its favorite son, Rush Limbaugh) and divide this land into two wildernesses. Just as there were more Jews in Babylon at the time of Yeshua, where only one tenth of them ever returned to eretz Israel since the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, so too now, the highest concentration of Jews in the world inhabits the cities of the eastern coast of the Untied States, especially in Florida and New York-New Jersey. MiAMI is my people and the time is here for the endtime message to be preached, and that message is “Come out of her MY PEOPLE.”
2nd Corinthians 6:11-18 “O you Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, and our heart is enlarged. You are not straitened in us, but you are straitened in your own bowels. Now for recompense in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness (Yeshua Torah) with unrighteousness (‘Jesus’ who has a different day of worship than Yahweh’s and is NOT ONE – ECHAD with the Father because Christianity refuses to keep His commandments) And what communion has light with darkness? And what concord has the Messiah with Belial? Or what part has he that believes with an infidel? And what agreement has the temple of YHWH with idols? For you are the temples of the living Elohim, as YHWH has said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be MY PEOPLE. Wherefore COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, and be ye separate, saith YHWH, and touch not the unclean thing (SWINE)…”
(This is our basis and reason for ALL New Testament BELIEVERS to study Torah, for if you do not study Torah, you will never distinguish between the clean and the unclean.)
“…And I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters,” saith YHWH, Elohim.”
Revelation 18:1-8 “and after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For ALL GENTILES have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,
“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues; for her sins have reached unto heaven, and YHWH has remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much SHE HAS GLORIFIED HERSELF…”
(The True Bride that is FAITHFUL to her Betrothed is filled with the Ruach HaKodesh)
Yochanan 16:13 “Howbeit when HE, the Spirit of Truth, IS COME, HE will guide you into all truth: for HE shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever HE shall hear, that shall HE speak: and HE will show you things to come. HE SHALL GLORIFY ME: for HE shall receive of mine, and (HE) shall show it unto you.”
Revelation 18:7 (continued) “…. SHE HAS GLORIFIED HERSELF, (the apostate wife who turns into The Whore of Babylon) and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, “I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.” Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is YHWH Elohim who judges her.”
Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 48:16-22 “Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Righteous Judge YHWH, and his Spirit, has sent me. Thus says YHWH, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; “I am your Elohim which teaches you to profit, which leads you by the way that you should go. O that you had hearkened to my commandments; then had your shalom been as a river, and your righteousness as the waves of the sea: Your seed (Third Day language) also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me. Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans (Accadians), with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, YHWH has redeemed his servant Ya’akov. And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out. There is no shalom, saith YHWH, unto the wicked.” (HaRashayim, those who twist truth, those who know the truth and turn it, and turn from it)
Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 51:1-52:12 “hearken to me, you that follow after righteousness (you who study and do Torah), you that seek YHWH: look unto the rock whence you are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence you are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. For YHWH shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody. Hearken unto Me, MY PEOPLE and give ear unto me, O my nation: for Torah shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people. My righteousness (Yeshua Torah) is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust. Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever and My righteousness (Yeshua, the living TORAH) SHALL NOT BE ABOLISHED.”
“Hearken unto me, you that know righteousness (Yeshua Torah), the people in whose heart is my law (Torah; the instruction in righteousness); fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. For the moth shall eat them up like a garment and the worm shall eat them like wool: but My righteousness (Yeshua Torah) shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.”
“Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of YHWH; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Are you not it that has cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? Are you not it, which has dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that has made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over (Third Day language)? Therefore the redeemed of YHWH shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. I, even I, am he that comforts you: who are you, that you should be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass (the Third Day truth; All flesh is as grass); And do you forget YHWH your maker, that has stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and have feared (instead) every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? And where is the fury of the oppressor? The captive exile hastens that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. But I am YHWH your Elohim that divided the sea (the Third Day truth), whose waves roared: YHWH Tzevaoth is his name. And I have put my words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of mine hand, that I may sow the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, You are MY PEOPLE.’
“Awake, awake, stand up, O JerUSAlem, which has drunk at the hand of YHWH the cup of his fury; you have drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out. There is none to guide her among all the sons (pastors, politicians, etc.) whom she has brought forth; neither is there any that takes her by the hand of all the sons that she has brought up. These two things are come unto you; who shall be sorry for you? Desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort you? Your sons have fainted; they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of YHWH, the rebuke of your Elohim. Therefore hear now this, you afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine: Thus saith your righteous Judge YHWH, and your Elohim that pleads the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of your hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; you shall no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict you (the fear of man based religious systems that have turned America into a political playground); … which have said to your SOUL, Bow down, that we may go over: and you have laid your body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.”
Yesha’yahu 52:” Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O JerUSAlem (true believers), the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake yourself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O JerUSAlem: loose yourself from the bands of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For thus says YHWH, You have sold yourselves for nought; and you shall be redeemed without money. For thus saith the Righteous Judge, MY PEOPLE went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. Now therefore, what have I here, saith YHWH, that MY PEOPLE is taken away for nought? They that rule over them make them to howl, saith YHWH; and MY NAME continually every day is blasphemed. THEREFORE MY PEOPLE SHALL KNOW MY NAME: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he who does speak.”
(Not some dumb religious idol that is made by men who, when asked a question based on scripture, avoid you and the question. This they do because they have no answers, thus proving they worship dumb idols of their own making.)
“…. Behold, it is I. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publishes shalom; that brings good tidings of good, that publishes salvation; that say unto Zion, Your Elohim reigneth! Your watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when YHWH returns Zion. Break forth into joy; sing together, you waste places of JerUSAlem: for YHWH has comforted his people, he has redeemed JerUSAlem. YHWH has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the Gentiles; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our Elohim. DEPART YE, DEPART YE, GO YE OUT FROM THENCE, (COME OUT FROM AMONG HER) touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of YHWH. FOR YOU SHALL NOT GO OUT BY HASTE NOR BY FLIGHT, a (FALSE RAPTURE).”
TAKE HEED: THIS MEANS THERE IS NO PRE-TRIB RAPTURE THAT WILL SUDDENLY TAKE YOU AWAY FROM BABYLON Which IS TO BECOME A Muslim POLICE STATE BEFORE HER FINAL DESTRUCTION. No one knows the timing!
“… For YHWH will go before you; and the Elohim of Israel will be your rearward (He will watch your rear end).”
Beginning with NIMROD And the TOWER of BABYLON on the plains of SHINAR, and continuing until today, the Satanically ruled Babylonian system of Governments and Religions has never left mankind! YAHWEH Elohim, our God, the Creator of Darkness and Light, has allowed mankind to continue to use and develop this Babylonian model throughout history. From the Watchers described in the Book of Enoch, the Nephilim, Anakim and Rephaim, mighty men of old, the stone images of “gods” on Easter [Ishtar] Island in the Pacific Ocean, the Meso- American “gods” of human sacrifice, the religions of cannibalism and death, and the many bloody kings, dictators, popes and conquerors described in history; the story of mankind is one of blood and death sowed on the infamous pages of man’s sojourns on this planet Earth. This is how it was and this is how it shall be until the end comes and YESHUA returns. Myriads of human beings have been summarily slaughtered with malice aforethought, in the name of Religion and in the name of some god, and men, in the name of the “God” of the Bible reimaged, have accomplished the largest slaughtering of their fellow human beings from ancient times until now. The Biases of men color and obscure the truth, even though it is self-evident!
Today in America, Babylon has emerged from hiding and has re-emerged as the 4th Reich [kingdom/empire], ruled by tyrants of the same worldview held by Nimrod. All of the pagan accoutrements of heathenism have been dusted off and presented to the unsaved world as the new normal. Most people fall under the hypnotic spell and embrace the slimy body of a new faith, Babylon reborn. The Obama nation captures humanity’s collective soul with ease. This is the way it shall be.
This PROPHETIC article is the answer to many questions including several prophecies given to me in the early 1980’s, which led me first to the Clearwater River basin wilderness in 1999 and then to Okanogan in 2009. You who are many, which have been called to this wilderness area; a place of uncultivated land and uncultivated minds, understand in part why you are here. This teaching may clarify your minds as to Yahweh’s purpose in calling you into a wilderness refuge. I pray that it may be so for us all.
Blessings, from the Wilderness teachers,
