Deliverance of the Captives
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.”
― George Orwell
Indeed, what an amazing assignment G-d had us carry out. Now those precious souls who had slumbered several millennia a comatose-like sleep were awakened by the Voice of G-d calling them, with angels fetching them and bringing them into the light and freedom of the Savior, into their rest and peace in Paradise. And they WILL YET LIVE in the Kingdom of G-d in the 2nd resurrection (Rev. 20:4,5,7,11-14). But we did not venture out foolishly, or as some thought, doing something cultic. Abba prepared the way for us not only by an awesome assignment in 1999, the Jerusalem Assignment; see especially 03, but by immobilizing and rendering Moloch utterly powerless, instructing His prophetic psalmist and minstrel, a Levite (a personal close friend of many years) to play once again the death of the “Assyrian/Moloch” on the funeral pyre, and for the 3rd time on September 1st.
This was a powerful prophetic act of spiritual warfare, carried out according to the instructions of the LORD. I.e., Apostle William T. Hodge and I, Elinor [Annelore] Rasco, did not just go out like some foolish would-be prophets. We had a divine assignment, of which Abba said to me with Isaiah 61:2, that this year of 2018, the Jewish year of 5779, is the acceptable year (He used the King James version) of the LORD to those souls which had been held captive, in the month of Tishrei (September), during the Feast of Tabernacles / Sukkot, on the day yud-zayn, yom revii, Sept. 26, Wednesday (as it seems in G-d’s divine reckoning a “year of Jubilee” for those souls). Abba’ gave us the Scriptures for this assignment, His Word which we were to pray into our shofars and send it forth from where the Hinnom Valley (in this live picture the Valley extends from the Sultan’s Pool – divided by the bridge) joins the Kidron, to the very other end of the valley, opposite the Sultan’s Pool.
We seven in 1999, my highly anointed prophetic psalmist and Levitical minstrel friend of many years, and Bill and I this September 26th finally accomplished what Abba had prepared since their awful death, until this acceptable year, month and day arrived. The valley filled up with G-d’s angels as Bill and I walked through the length of it, sounding the shofars, sending forth Abba’s Word (if you want to know the power and use of musical instruments, especially of the shofar, go to Newsletter # 37, pg 04.
Isaiah 49:9; Jn 1:4-5, 9; 8:12; Job 33:28-30 (RSV)
“Come forth, you prisoners of the bound and rendered powerless Moloch! Come forth into the freedom of Messiah Yeshua, Son of G-d, Redeemer and Savior. You who have been kept in Moloch’s cavern of darkness, APPEAR into the light of Yeshua HaMashiach, Who IS the Light that has come into the world to light every man with the Light of Life.”
Luke 4:18; Isa. 61:1-3 (RSV)
“For the Spirit of the LORD is upon Him, because G-d has anointed Him to preach the Good News to the poor and proclaim RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, recovering of sight to the blind (behold, the year 20/20), to SET AT LIBERTY those who are oppressed, and proclaim the acceptable [favorable] year of the LORD to you, which is this 2018 for you, the Jewish year 5779, in the month of Tishrei, on the day yud-zayn, yom revii, September 26th, Wednesday.”
Isaiah 42:7 (RSV)
“In the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, by the power of His blood, by the power of His cross, and in the authority of His Name, let your eyes which have been blind in a sleep of many millennia be opened! And by the victorious power of the Redeemer and Son of G-d, Yeshua, be brought forth from the dungeon, you prisoners of many thousands of years, into the liberty of the Savior, and from Moloch’s prison of darkness into the glorious Light of Yeshua HaMashiach.”
Hebrews 4:15, 7, 16 (RSV)
“Today then, when you hear His Voice of the shofar and His Word, draw near to the throne of grace and enter your rest and the peace of G-d which surpasses all human understanding. COME FORTH, oh you souls who had been sold to Moloch by fire! APPEAR, BE SET FREE from captivity, and from the dungeon and kingdom of darkness, and enter your rest and peace in the Paradise of Yeshua HaMashiach, LORD of lords and King of kings, Son of G-d, YOUR REDEEMER.”
Please read Ps 103:20-21, to understand what happens when G-d’s WORD is being VOICED, especially through the Shofar. Satan tried to stop me by Bill not seeing my shofar on my bed when we checked out, coming without it, but I would not be stopped by this interference and ran back and fetched it. Although towards the end my vaning strength had me sound the shofar weakly if at all, but I saw nevertheless in the Spirit G-d’s mighty angels (upon whom I called as loud as I could with Ps 103:20-21) swooping down (angels are not subject to the 3-dimensional world; they can enter into the earth unhindered) to fetch the souls of those children delivered by G-d Almighty from their captivity and from that dungeon of darkness. G-d NEVER EVER forgot those souls which belonged to Him but were sacrificed to Moloch. He needed faithful servants of His who would carry out His instructions obediently, with all faith, without blinking an eye, no matter how strange the instructions may seem.
Those precious souls have entered their rest now in Paradise, awaiting the 2nd resurrection. This acceptable year, month, feast and day became their 2nd “birthday,” as our sister, Rev. Sally Nagy, so correctly perceived from the Holy Spirit. And this once horrible valley of idolatry and death has been transformed into a valley of joy and gladness, light and life, according to the eternal purposes of G-d. He planned it, He purposed it, and He had His obedient prophets, apostles and intercessors carry it out and complete it in the year 5779, during Sukkot, in the month of Tishrei, on the day of yud-zayin.
The valley filled up with angels and being also curious of nature, they came and occupied the empty chairs in Jan Willem Vander Hoeven’s tent he had put up for his Sukkot conference. I tried to share all that marvellous glory with him and with the few people who had come, but he gave me only 2 minutes, too short to share this. What a pity!
Let me say this loud and clear: all praise, honor, glory and thanksgiving for this assignment and its outcome belongs alone to the only Living, Eternal G-d – of a triune nature: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to no man! I am very jealous for our G-d’s glory, and cannot accept it if one of His servants allows him- or herself to be praised. I also will without fail pick on a half-truth report. Abraham and Isaac did not lie when they said that Sarah and Rebekkah were their sisters (Sarah Abraham’s half sister, Rebekkah Isaac’s 1st cousin), but their keeping silence about the sisters being also their wives distorted the truth, the facts. We, as G-d’s faithful and obedient children and servants, must not yield to such a deception, although it is not a lie. Yes, beloveds, I will step on all 10 toes of whoever does this because I can’t help it – I am jealous for my G-d, NOT for myself.
And let me share with you here the awesome effectiveness and power of the shofar, as I have been pointing out frequently at my meetings and in my teachings of how to pray the Word:
The shofar – a ram’s horn – represents: 1) judgment; 2) repentance; 3) redemption; 4) forgiveness; 5) liberty to the captives; and 6) restoration of the inheritance. Because G-d had judged Abraham as faithful and redeemed Isaac from death with a ram caught in a thicket, the shofar is blown instead of the silver trumpet as commanded: a) in the year of jubilee [a year of redemption, of liberty for the captives and restoration of inheritance]; b) on the Feast of Trumpets [Rosh Hashanah, the time of “last chance” for repentance, of making amends, of getting right with G-d and man]; c) the Day of Atonement [a day of sealing judgment for forgiveness and blessings, or for condemnation, punishment and curses].
Let me explain furthermore WHY the use of the shofar is an essential part of every divine assignment.
It is not just spiritual or philosophical (philosophy has no part with what is foremost spiritual) but in G-d’s plan very practical. If you will look up in your Strong’s Concordance (because I use the numbers in this Concordance) you will find that the word always translated into the English as “trumpet” is most of the time the word “shofar” in Hebrew (see #7782). When reading the occasions at which the shofar was blown, one can see that it is one of the “voices” of G-d, as occurred at the mount of G-d in the Sinai. It is blown for calling together the men of war, going out for battle, the walls of Jericho came down from the blasts of the shofars, Gideon routed with mere 300 men a powerful enemy, sounding the shofars, shouting, “For the LORD and for Gideon!”
The shofar has it’s origin with the “Akida of Isaac” . Isaac’s birth was supernatural, not having been fathered nor conceived in the strength or lust of the flesh but by the power of G-d alone. This “promised seed” of Abraham foreshadows the “Promised Seed” of G-d decreed in Gan Eden, Who would bruise the serpent’s head and he, His heel.
According to the biblical account in Gen. 22, G-d commanded Abraham to offer up Isaac on Mt. Moriah. I shall not go into the many view points and interpretations expressed about this, but by what is written and what I was shown in 3 consecutive night visions , pg 03, plus the Holy Spirit showing that Abraham’s hand holding the knife was on the way down (Gen. 22:10) before the angel of the LORD (who was THIS angel of the LORD? In Scripture only ONE is called the angel of Yehova, and that is Yeshua) called out from heaven and stopped him (11-12). G-d accepted the sacrifice of Isaac as rendered, wherefore He provided a ram caught in the thicket to carry out the burnt offering. According to Jewish tradition, Abraham took one horn, G-d the other.
What is so special about the shofar is that the shofar is linked to Yeshua’s Sacrifice, which was foreshadowed by Isaac’s Binding and brought to completion by the ram offered up as a burnt offering in Isaac’s stead.The shofar is not a mere ram’s horn. It represents Abraham’s faith and willingness to let go of what was dearest to him – the son who had been promised to him by G-d. It represents our Savior’s sacrifice, and with it has resident in it the power of His blood and cross. It is a Voice of G-d as is also the thunder or that still, small voice, or the crashing of breaking waves. The devils and demons fear the shofar as G-d’s Voice, for when it sounds all what I just shared comes against them in great power. I place here a picture that shows flames shooting out of the shofars when blown, especially by believers, so there is also the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Speaking now of the practical side, just as going out to battle, we purposefully pray the Word of G-d into the shofar before we sound it. We only pray those Scriptures the Holy Spirit clearly indicates. In such case the shofar is not only a battle horn, it is
- the instrument that VOICES the Word of G-d (see Ps 103:20-21 … where the angels HEARKEN to the VOICE of G-d’s WORD and then go and carry it out, doing His will)
- and is LINKED to the Akida,
- LINKED to Yeshua’s Sacrifice,
- LINKED to His blood and cross, to the awesome authority of His Name.
Perhaps this may seem unreal to some, that such things are not done in our days, that this belongs into the O.T. [O.C.] However, we are told that G-d does not change, He does not turn one iota from Who He is. So there is indeed no “shadow of change” with Him because He is – Light. And Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and forever more. G-d is raising up some of Yeshua’s followers who have the faith, the courage, the maturity and OBEDIENCE to carry out such unusual assignments. This is not done to show off on TV, to blast all over the internet via youtube, as it is not to glorify the vessels who carry out the assignments but G-d, who by the effects and fruits of the assignments proves the certainty of His promises. All the glory is His!
