Several days ago I was having a conversation with Judy Keys, a woman of God from Illinois. Eye began to hear the Spirit speak about, “Finding Your Goshen.” We were discussing the supernatural, miraculous events during crisis and the coming events on the world. As I paced the floor and shared, I felt a stirring in my inner man and knew that Spirit wanted me to share this message of warning, inspiration, hope and the miraculous with you.
You have heard it said many times before and you might have even said it yourself, “these are the days the prophets spoke of.” They truly are, and we will see an increase and acceleration of the ancient prophetic Scriptures in the Bible and other holy writings manifesting in real time…the literal version of events.
The Bible calls this period of time, “the great and terrible day of Yahweh,” and it truly is. In this day of great paradox, it will be important to learn the dance of the paradox. The ‘necessary duality’ of this period must be played out each step at a time. By ignoring it, pretending that it does not exist or that you are not affected by it at some level, will not make it go away; the dance will only become more intense. The dance is the interpretation of the music being heard and or felt. The music is about to become louder…thus, the manifestation of world events must become more intense. On the individual level, the same must be; until we move beyond the breaking (break dance), crumping, intense gyrations into a smooth flowing vibratory movement on the planet. The planet Earth herself is also travailing in this dance, her shaking, jerks and movements will become more frequent over the next 8 months.
Intuitively anticipating the unrehearsed moves of your partner and the unfamiliar music is key to dancing the dance of paradox in the great and terrible day. “For you have not walked this way before.” Each step must become a prayer and step of faith until the paradox or duality is merged into the singularity-the full realization and manifestation of being one with all things.
The appearance of contradiction and contrast in the outer world and our individual world must be seen for what it really is. The elements of choice – perceived choice and perception will determine how you fare in this great ( Hebrew word ‘great‘ is ga’dole= important, of great magnitude, loud; distinguished.) and terrible (Hebrew word for ‘terrible‘ ya’ra= fearful, to stand in awe; terrifying) day of the Lord. We can choose to see tribulation as Great (great tribulation), wonderful, necessary, important for our spiritual evolution or we can see tribulation as terrifying.
“And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?” Joel 2:11
3500 years ago in Africa, the land of Ham (Egypt); the Creator was developing a people who were to be a pattern or example of human consciousness developing on the planet. This archetype people would eventually repeat the events on various levels throughout the ages in various parts of the world and possibly off world. When the time of their enslavement would be finished, God raise up a Moses to bring judgment on the system that had enslaved them, destroying it and letting the captives go free. This is why we celebrate Passover, looking forward to the Cosmic Passover.
While they were in Egypt, they lived in an area called Goshen, east of the Nile River, near the Red Sea. Joseph, a patriarch of the tribal nation had foreseen a time when this archetype people, called Hebrews (people from the other side) would leave Egypt. For many years they flourished and prospered in the “safe area,” until a Pharaoh that did not know Joseph arose and treated them harshly. Goshen was no longer a safe zone of prosperity for the Hebrews, it became a place of pain, punishment and imprisonment for many years.
As fate would have it, this place that constantly reminded them of their slavery and ill treatment, again became a place of protection. As the 10 plagues were released upon Egypt through the prophetic words and acts of Moses and Aaron, the Hebrews in Goshen were not affected by them. Exodus Chapters 7-12
Blood, frogs, lice, flies, pestilence, boils, hail, locust, darkness and death. These literal out of the ordinary events happened…but during this tribulation upon the land of Egypt, the Hebrews miraculously were not affected. There was such a high frequency of Spirit surrounding Goshen and the Hebrew people that No Plague Could Come Near Their Dwellings. When they finally left out of Egypt, they did not go empty handed.
“The LORD brought his people out of Egypt, loaded with silver and gold; and not one among the tribes of Israel was weak or even stumbled.” Psalms 105:37
We see from this that the Hebrews not only enjoying divine health and wholeness when they believed the prophetic voice, but they also came out wealthy. What a magnificent paradox we see here happening in the same country with people living side by side. Some people were experiencing hell on earth from the affects of the 10 plagues, while others were experiencing safety and abundance. The prophetic word is a double edged sword, bringing disaster to some and deliverance to others.
“Believe his prophets and you shall prosper.”
We are moving further into a period of time where the world will soon see many changes, there will be earth changes caused by a number of things happening on earth and from outer space. There will be plagues created by man and nature, there will be strange signs in the heavens and much death on the planet. Some have heard and are hearing a voice leading them to their Goshen, for some this means physically moving to a safe place. Others are leaving the big cities and yet others are going underground.
You must find your Goshen and be there. Your Goshen does not have to mean moving to the desert or to a farm. It does not have to mean building an underground bunker. All of these things sounds fascinating and could be fun, but everyone can not do these things or should do them.
“As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalms 91:1
GOSHEN means Drawing Near. This is the place of inward unity, where the paradoxical dance of life becomes easy; even though you’ve never danced this dance before. This is the unity between spirit, soul and body that is experienced when we draw near to God and he draws near to us. How can we draw any nearer to the Being we call God when He lives within us? This is not a physical movement, it is a movement in consciousness. God is in everyone and in everything, however, the masses are not aware, thus, they are far from Him.
Goshen is the conscious awareness of God within and consciously becoming more immersed in that concept by our actions. Goshen=drawing near. This speaks of a process, acting consciously with intent. To be clear and put this in Biblical language, it means developing a more intense relationship, which comes through interacting with him…PRAYER.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” James 4:7-8
Goshen is wherever God has you to be. You are blessed in the city, suburbs and in the country rural areas. Why? If you are dwelling in that secret place, you are abiding under the shadow (divine protection) of the Almighty. What is that secret place? It is the place and attitude of prayer and meditation.
“But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in Secret, and your Father who sees what is done in Secret will reward you.”
In this time of great paradox, you will hear what sounds like mixed messages. On the one hand, you will hear how God is about to pour out His Spirit in this Age of Aquarius, bless His people and cause a transfer of wealth. On the other, you will hear about all the destruction that’s about to take place on the land and in this country. Both messages are accurate and are from God. While the plagues fell on Egypt, protection and provision also manifested.
The human minds questions: What shall we do if there is no food or water for extended periods? What shall we do if the power grids fail due to Solar Flares or an EMP weapon is detonated, thus, rendering computers, communication and most cars useless? What will happen…???? After the initial shock, many will realize the value of relationships and how to become our brother’s keeper…hopefully.
“But the people that do know their God shall be strong and shall do exploits.” Daniel 11:32
Several days ago as I was having this conversation on the phone with the sister from Illinois, I shared some of the miracles I have seen. The gift of manifestations (miracles) is being restored. We have the ability to create whatever is needed or wanted. We can actually call it into existence.
My mind goes back to many miraculous experiences on the mission field in various nations. Some of you reading this article have heard me tell this testimony that happened in this nation. I was in my late teens, the first in my family to be filled with the Holy Spirit. My mother came to Christ a year later and was filled with Spirit. It seems as though our life was turned upside down after accepting Christ. Some of you can identify with this, when you decided to turn from the worldly ways of doing things, your finances and other things were challenged. My mother lost her job, my unbelieving uncle was staying with us, he had become so depressed he could not work after suddenly losing his wife in a car accident. Plus, a non-related man as well that needed help was staying with us. There were six in the household at that time.
The refrigerator was almost completely empty, besides condiment jars and a few items, so was the pantry… But I had seen miracles in my life and performed through my life as a zealous on fire teen-ager.
In those days I carried a small bottle of blessed oil everywhere and regularly laid hands on people praying for them in the streets, on the bus, restaurant, hospitals or anywhere and saw God perform.
After eating the last supper and not very much to look forward to the following day, I felt inspired to anoint the refrigerator and cabinets with oil and got my mother to join me. I spoke to God reminding him how we had been faithful in tithing/offerings, and asked for the windows of heaven to be opened. Then, Eye spoke to the refrigerator, cabinets and pantry in a loud voice pointing. Eye commanded food to manifest in Jesus name. I had never seen this happen, but I had child-like faith and knew if God could provide food for 40 years in the desert everyday, He could do it a few days for us.
My unbelieving uncle who had become an alcoholic due to his depression and loss of wife, busted out laughing and circling his ears. Our house guest even laughed as they watched me talk out loud to the refrigerator and pantry. It was at least 10:00 pm, there were no 24hr Food Centers in those days…and my uncle slept in the living room on the hide-a-way sofa bed. My mother did not drive, my uncle gave up driving after the accident and our guest from out of town had no car.
As an energetic teen-ager, the first thing I did every morning or most mornings was run downstairs to the refrigerator to grab something. My uncle was yet asleep or barely waking up. I open the refrigerator and saw it almost filled with food, the freezer had fresh meat not in store packages with the price and weight on it, but as if it had come from a butcher shop wrapped in the paper they used. The pantry and cabinets had can foods etc. I began yelling to wake everybody up to come and see what the Lord had done. There were no empty grocery bags, receipts or anything. No one knew our situation. Somehow the angels had gone grocery shopping and stocked our refrigerator, pantry and cabinets with the foods were accustomed to eating, or it just quietly manifested from the unseen realm.
We saw Father do this type of miracle on (2) occasions. My uncle and the guest became Believers. My uncle, who had always made fun of my spirituality developed a deep respect for me and the house guest started to attend Church regularly with us, until he moved out of state. “
“Bless the Lord oh my soul and forget not all his benefits.” Psalms 103
Is there anything too difficult for your God and the God power within you?? NO!!! Did He not say, take no thought of what you shall eat or wear?
Find your Goshen, live there and experience the supernatural. This place is revealed in deep prayer or meditation. If there are no vehicles, we will learn to teleport at will. If there are no telephones or email, we will learn to communicate telepathically. If there is no medicine or doctors available, we will learn to trust God for healing. If there is no electricity, we can come to realize that we literally are the light of the world and the photon light particles will radiate from our body to create literal light. If there is no heat, the fire of the Holy Spirit within can generate enough heat from within to warm your home. If it is too hot, speak to the atmosphere and change it.
If there is no money to purchase things, we will just speak them into existence. In Goshen is where we learn to depend totally of the Father as the supplier of ALL our needs and to be able to help others. However, one must have the ability to SEE Goshen, using your inner Eye. Study Joel chapter 1 to see the prophetic prayer posture that brings you to Goshen.
Study Joel Chapter 2 to see the results of entering into that secret place and abiding there. In the time of great upheaval and unrest of nations, and the economy; it will also be a time of great outpouring of Spirit upon all flesh. Here is an aspect of the Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse series that is mostly forgotten.
“And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:” Joel 2:26-32
Hidden in the name or word GOSHEN are many prophetic clues, we only have the time to examine a few:
GOSHEN means Drawing near. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. However, this also speaks of the element of time or timing. Something is drawing near, about to happen; an event or many events that will take place, a fulfillment of a time cycle.
The Hebrews placed in Goshen was constantly reminded of a time would come for their exodus. They were constantly reminded each time they spoke the name “Goshen” that God would fulfill the promised made to their forefathers. There was a subtle clue or message reminding them to Get Ready, Stay Ready, Be Prepared. This is the message Spirit is giving us. We don’t want to be like the foolish virgins that had lamps but no oil.
“The lamp of the body is the EYE, and if your EYE be single, your whole body will be filled with Light.” Matthew 6:22
So now we understand, the 5 wise virgins that had their 3rd EYE lubricated and open could enter into the Wedding Party. The 5 foolish virgins did not have the oil that the Pineal Gland (3rd EYE) secrets to decalcify it, causing it become activated. They could not find their way into the Marriage Supper. Matthew 25
Hidden in the name GOSHEN this mystery is also revealed from the ancient Hebrew language in pictograph form.
The letter G is the GIMMEL in Hebrew, equivalent to the letter C in English.
The O is AYIN in Hebrew.
The Sh is SHIN in Hebrew. Looking a bit further into the meaning of these letters and the pictographs/glyphs associated reveals another mystery.
Gimmel means a Foot, walking, gathering. It is also seen as a camel (gamel) which speaks of Abundance, riches. The camels often were loaded with riches.
Ayin means the Eye, to watch, know; shade. You must be able to see the abundance and blessings.
Shin means the Teeth, to consume. This is the ability to partake of the abundance that you see. Shaddai means more than enough; this name of God is formed with the Shin (Sh).
Walk by faith, See it manifest and Partake of it – GOSHEN, this is the place of unity of spirit, soul and body; where life’s dance of paradox becomes a smooth rhythmic flow.
