Twenty Year Prophetic Cycle
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,
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
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,
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.
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
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"
April 3rd, in 2015; and the inordinate number of Blood Moons,
and countless other signs. This
convergence of so many signs, events, and occurrences, and then being
the top of another
Prophetic Cycle for me, is not insignificant.
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
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.
I did not Share the Supernatural Signs, Photos, and Experiences
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?”
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?
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?
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;
was I tempted to exploit the signs, experiences, and photographs.
Perhaps the following two part explanation will help.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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....”
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
a pattern of what was to come.
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
but would not do them; they
made a “show
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
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
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!

Forty years ago, He revealed Himself to me by snatching me 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
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
