The Twenty Year Prophetic Cycle


My first remembrance of the "Stigmata" appearance was soon after the Jack Coe tent meetings, June, 1955; I was "Caught Away" around June, 1975; and the "Hands of Fire" phenomenon appeared, June, 1995.

Of all the extraordinary and spectacular supernatural experiences that I have encountered, these three had the greatest impact on me. Each were major turning points in my life. It's not mere coincidence they each happened twenty years apart, down to the month.

I call it my "Twenty Year Prophetic Cycle".

If He grants me another Twenty Year Prophetic Cycle, it should occur around June, 2015. I don’t know how many more Twenty Year Prophetic Cycles are left, if any. Should He grant us another after 2015, I will be in my mid-80s when it occurs. Obviously, this one is important to us.

Enhancing the importance of this cycle are the alignment of important events like: the Jewish "Year of Jubilee"; and the 50th year since Brother William Branham was taken home, what I call the "Branham Jubilee"; and the 70th year since the Angel of the Lord commissioned Brother Branham, which is the event that sparked The Great Healing Revival; and one of Brother Branham's right hand men, a wonderful pastor and brother, who was preparing to celebrate his Jubilee Anniversary in November, 2015 as pastor of Brother Branham's home church in Arizona, just went home to join that heavenly host on August 20, 2015; and the day Jesus was actually crucified was Friday, April 3rd, in 33 AD, and this year, "Good Friday" fell on April 3rd, in 2015; and the inordinate number of Blood Moons, earthquakes, and countless other signs. This convergence of so many signs, events, and occurrences, and then being the top of another Twenty Year Prophetic Cycle for me, is not insignificant.

NOTE: When nothing apparently happened by June 30, 2015; I began to seek the Lord, asking why? All I got was drywall ceiling and hardwood floor in answer to my prayer. But the next morning, I looked out my front window and there were 24 mushrooms growing in an almost perfect semi-circle right next to my drive way, just inside my front yard. It was unusual. Most of them grew to over 10-inches in diameter. I video taped it and made several photographs. I began seeking God, and searching scripture and history to see if it meant anything. I am satisfied it was a sign from God with a private personal message. Maybe someday I'll make it all public. But it did show me something about my life, calling, and ministry. He had done something similar with Brother Branham with the seven mountain peaks in Lima, Montana. As He spoke to me I thought, who said God doesn't have a sense of humor. He speaks to His chief prophet using an entire mountain range. When He speaks to an old ex-hippie He uses mushrooms! That should make my generation smile, because it shows me that God loves us, and He cares about what happens to us, just as a loving father with a tender heart toward His children. He desires an intimate relationship with each one of us, no matter how difficult our struggles, or how badly we may think we have failed.




Why I did not Share the Supernatural Signs, Photos, and Experiences

Thirty-two years ago


Sometimes people ask me, “why didn't you share these photos, and tell the people about these supernatural signs and experiences when you first came here?The obvious inference is that it would have enhanced my ministry here. That is probably correct. Had I exploited the sacred gifts, experiences, and signs God has given me, I probably could have avoided those 32-years of poverty, shame, and humiliation. But at what cost?

He did not give them to me to be merchandised. I should not be forced to choose between exploiting holy gifts, and poverty. No one should have to defile sacred things to get the church to do the right thing! What's the difference in that and prostitution?

God did not tell me I was allowed to make these things public, until recently. For me, it is better to be in obedience and endure the abject poverty, than to deliberately go out of His will in order to prosper. I can honestly say, there were times I thought of giving up; but never once was I tempted to exploit the signs, experiences, and photographs. Perhaps the following two part explanation will help.


First of all, the signs were for me, not for them. The “Burning Bush” was for Moses, not for Israel. Moses' “Hand” becoming leprous then being healed, Moses' “Rod” becoming a snake and again becoming a rod, and pouring water on the ground and it turning into "Blood", each were initially for Moses, not for Israel. Moses revealed these things to Israel much later, during the "Wilderness Experience". But they were initially given to Moses to help him believe enough to accept his commission from God; and to withstand when satan would test his faith to the extreme. Until recently, I was not given permission to share these experiences publicly.


Secondly, before I came here, the Lord gave me instructions on how I would know who has His Holy Spirit in them. He had placed His Spirit in me and confirmed that with supernatural signs. He did that for me, to confirm these things to me and in me. It was not for them, at that time.

He assured me that if they have His Holy Spirit in them, that Spirit will recognize who I am by the Spirit He placed in me. His Spirit will not repel His Spirit.

Those who know how the spirit operates understand what I'm saying here. This was demonstrated in Brother Branham's ministry, every time he ministered in the Spirit.

The Lord showed me if they repel me, never accept me, reject me, shun me, never allow me to get close, push me away, or any of those kinds of conduct, then His Holy Spirit is not in them; regardless of what they may claim, feel, or do.

That's another spirit in them that hates the Spirit He placed in me.

So that is how I'll know who they are, by how they respond to me; not by how they respond to seeing Him manifest supernatural signs through me. There's always a multitude ready to follow after the fishes and loaves. As throughout scripture, the signs were to be shown to the elect, in the wilderness.


Now I can just hear some critic arise, citing for example Paul's bitter dissension with Barnabas over Mark. I would say to Mr. or Mrs. Critic, remember in your current role that's all you are, is a critic. Contrary to what you may believe, the Holy Spirit did not prompt you with your criticism. He knows the truth. He's the One who revealed this to me. He's the One who confirmed it countless times with signs. Had “...the Spirit of Truth come....” to prompt you, that would have been to “...guide you into all truth....” My recommendation is to first get deliverance from all evils spirits, then seek the infilling of the Holy Spirit, and then ask “...the Comforter....”, and “...He will teach you all things....”


A few months after we moved here, the Lord gave me Ezekiel 33:30-33 as a pattern of what was to come. All these years later, He has vindicated me unquestionably as His servant, and as one of His prophets, just as promised. Over these three-plus decades, those verses He gave me in Ezekiel have unfolded like a blossom opens in spring. And just as that passage states, they “heard my words”, but would not do them; they made a “show of love”, but chased after covetousness; and I was to them as a “...song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument....” And just as He promised me, “...when this cometh to pass, (lo it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them....” As they always have, those things I have prophesied over this place, and these people, will come to pass. Woe unto them who have not repented in that day!


The purpose for sharing these supernatural signs and experiences is not to boast, but to testify of Him! These signs and experiences are not to celebritize me, but to magnify Him! He gave them, and continues to give them, to vindicate me as His servant. Further, it is to show yet another reason why I am willing to repeatedly follow Him into the lion's den; and why I've been willing to endure the decades of extreme adversity, abject poverty, insults, humiliation, and public shame. I love Him!

Sixty years ago, He revealed Himself to me by His power and marked me as "His Property" with "His Stigmata". Forty years ago, He revealed Himself to me by snatching me away ("Caught Away") and engulfing me into His glorious Shekinah Presence, and similar to the Mount of Transfiguration account. Twenty years ago, He gave me a conditional promise of my full ministry and confirmed it by the "Hands of Fire" sign, which remains to this day. He has made me know experientially that ALL power and authority is in Him; and that nothing and no one can stand in His presence; no demon, no principality, no angel, no disease, no military force, nor satan, and not even death can stand against Him! Everyone and everything is subject to Him! He’s been with me, even in me all my life! He has always delivered me! I am His property! He defends me extravagantly! Woe unto me if I preach not the gospel....
