The Horns of Power and the Dream of the Building full of Vessels
I was studying the word and the Lord began to quicken scriptures regarding the God of Jacob and the Horn of God's Power that He has for us and also that is being revealed within us, and among us in this last day. I spent about an hour researching the scriptures and typing them up.
Psalms 146:5 Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is he who has the God of [special revelation to] Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God,
Genesis 32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel [the face of God], saying, For I have seen God face to face, and my life is spared and not snatched away.
Exodus 3:6 Also He said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.
Luke 20:36 For they cannot die again, but they are angel-like and equal to angels. And being sons of and sharers in the resurrection, they are sons of God. 37 But that the dead are raised [from death]--even Moses made known and showed in the passage concerning the [burning] bush, where he calls the Lord, The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 38 Now He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to Him all men are alive [whether in the body or out of it] and they are alive [not dead] unto Him [in definite relationship to Him].
The Lord then inspired me to look up scriptures on the horns in relationship to His Name, the God of Jacob:
Psalms 89:17 For You are the glory of their strength [their proud adornment], and by Your favor our horn is exalted and we walk with uplifted faces!
Psalms 132:17 There will I make a horn spring forth and bud for David; I have ordained and prepared a lamp for My anointed [fulfilling the promises of old].
Jeremiah 48:25 The horn (strength) of Moab is cut off, and his arm [of authority] is shattered, says the Lord.
Psalms 148:14 He has lifted up a horn for His people [giving them power, prosperity, dignity, and preeminence], a song of praise for all His godly ones, for the people of Israel, who are near to Him.
Psalms 18:2 The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer; my God, my keen and firm Strength in Whom I will trust and take refuge, my Shield, and the Horn of my salvation, my High Tower.
Genesis 49:24 But his bow remained strong and steady and rested in the Strength that does not fail him, for the arms of his hands were made strong and active by the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob, by the name of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
Psalms 75:10 All the horns of the ungodly also will I cut off [says the Lord], but the horns of the [uncompromisingly] righteous shall be exalted.
Psalms 89:24 My faithfulness and My mercy and loving-kindness shall be with him, and in My name shall his horn be exalted [great power and prosperity shall be conferred upon him].
Psalms 92:10 But my horn (emblem of excessive strength and stately grace) You have exalted like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil.
Psalms 24:6 This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that]!
Psalms 112:8 His heart is established and steady, he will not be afraid while he waits to see his desire established upon his adversaries. 9 He has distributed freely [he has given to the poor and needy]; his righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) endures forever; his horn shall be exalted in honor. 10 The wicked man will see it and be grieved and angered, he will gnash his teeth and disappear [in despair]; the desire of the wicked shall perish and come to nothing.
Zechariah 1:18 Then I lifted up my eyes and saw, and behold, four horns [symbols of strength]. 19 And I said to the angel who talked with me, What are these? And he answered me, These are the horns or powers which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. 20 Then the Lord showed me four smiths or workmen [one for each enemy horn, to beat it down]. 21 Then said I, What are these [horns and smiths] coming to do? And he said, These are the horns or powers that scattered Judah so that no man lifted up his head. But these smiths or workmen have come to terrorize them and cause them to be panic-stricken, to cast out the horns or powers of the nations who lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it.
Ezekiel 29:21 In that day will I cause a horn to spring forth to the house of Israel and I will open your lips among them, and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service].
Micah 4:13 Arise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion! For I will make your horn iron and I will make your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples, and I will devote their gain to the Lord and their treasure to the Lord of all the earth.
Luke 1:69 And He has raised up a Horn of salvation [a mighty and valiant Helper, the Author of salvation] for us in the house of David His servant-- Jesus!!!
Psalms 132:1 LORD, [earnestly] remember to David's credit all his humiliations and hardships and endurance-- 2 How he swore to the Lord and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 Surely I will not enter my dwelling house or get into my bed-- 4 I will not permit my eyes to sleep or my eyelids to slumber, 5 Until I have found a place for the Lord, a habitation for the Mighty One of Jacob. 6 Behold, at Ephratah we [first] heard of [the discovered ark]; we found it in the fields of the wood [at Kiriath-jearim]. 7 Let us go into His tabernacle; let us worship at His footstool. 8 Arise, O Lord, to Your resting-place, You and the ark [the symbol] of Your strength. 9 Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness (right living and right standing with God); and let Your saints shout for joy! 10 For Your servant David's sake, turn not away the face of Your anointed and reject not Your own king. 11 The Lord swore to David in truth; He will not turn back from it: One of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne. 12 If your children will keep My covenant and My testimony that I shall teach them, their children also shall sit upon your throne forever. 13 For the Lord has chosen Zion, He has desired it for His habitation: 14 This is My resting-place forever [says the Lord]; here will I dwell, for I have desired it. 15 I will surely and abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16 Her priests also will I clothe with salvation, and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17 There will I make a horn spring forth and bud for David; I have ordained and prepared a lamp for My anointed [fulfilling the promises of old]. 18 His enemies will I clothe with shame, but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law and instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
When I finished, I began to get really tired and felt led to lay down for an hour before going to the prayer watch at church.
My Dream on 5-25-12
I then dreamed that I was outside of this big building, and there were many people outside the building standing around. They each were holding a pottery vessel in their hands. Everyone had a different vessel unique to them. I knew that the vessel they carried represented them. God is the potter and we are the clay. As we were standing outside the very massive building, I heard sounds coming from inside the building. It sounded like crashing and breaking much like it would if vandals were inside destroying things within the property. So we went into the building to investigate.
Inside the building, I saw multitudes of people within. There were shelves along the walls of one area, and rows of pottery stood lined up on the shelves all gleaming and ready to be picked up. In the middle of the room, Jesus was walking around and was grabbing the pottery from the hands of the people inside and He was throwing pottery onto the floor. He was smashing the pottery to bits right in front of them and the people were shocked, but no one moved. He didn't smash every vessel, but there were only a few that I saw here and there that were not smashed. Most were taken from their hands and smashed. It came to me as I watched the process, that it was 95% of them.
Then I was taken closer, and I could hear what Jesus said to many of the people as they stood and were greeted by Jesus. To one, He said, I can't use these vessels because they are not Mine, and he grabbed it and threw it down and it burst into a million shards on the floor. Then He went to the next one, and said, I didn't make this vessel, I don't recognize it, and He proceeded to take it and also throw it down smashing it to bits too. To another person, He said, I never intended that you become this type of vessel, and He took it and threw it down also. He went to the next person, and said to them, I cannot use your vessel. I cannot conform to it, but you must conform to Me, and he took it from them and threw it down. Jesus said many things, but these are the ones that I could hear. The look on the faces of the people was one of horror and shock that Jesus did this. Jesus then turned to the group of peoples and said, "I can't use your vessels because they are not My workmanship. I didn't intend that these things be built and used in My House."
Then He turned to me and said, "What the overall church has made and built for herself is not what I told her too. I can't use much of what is represented today, as it does not conform to Me, nor does it fully reflect Me, it mostly reflects the person themselves. I cannot and will not conform to the image of man, but man must become conformed to Me and must be like Me. Then I can use them to represent Me fully. What you see here is the attempts of men to make something for Me, but I didn't inspire them to make much of what is being shown forth today, these things came from their own hearts and desires. I cannot flow through much of what is made in this day. The vessels that you saw Me break are not able to be used for My higher purposes in the days ahead, because they will not be able to function in the capacity that I need them to. So I must shake, break, and shatter what you currently see represented as Me, and begin a whole new work in the midst of this generation. I am going to create a Glorious Habitation, and when I am through, it will be full of vessels that are true. I will have a Glorious Church and she will ne new, and she will flow with Me and she will be just like Me!"
Then, the scene changed, and I saw that there was a person standing in the building among the multitudes there. He was President John F. Kennedy. He was also among the people and was one of them that has his vessel smashed.
The Lord then said, "Everything from John F. Kennedy onwards that the church has made and done would now be dealt with and removed." I instantly knew that this meant that Jesus was going to deal with us now and He would correct the mistakes that the church had made clear back to the time of Kennedy.
Jesus said to me, "The church in America has strayed from My will and much of what has been done up to this day has been what they wanted to, according to their desires and plans. Most don't follow Me closely, and this has caused you to make buildings of pottery that have no real value, or use to My Kingdom. 95% of what is viewed as the church today will be radically changed in the days ahead. I can't use the church in her current overall structure because she has become a vessel which I didn't make. My power cannot pour into them, nor can it pour out of them, so they must be remade."
Jesus was quiet for a few moments and then said, "Just as David could not wear Saul's armor to fight Goliath, so My People cannot use the things they have made, because they are not fit for the conflicts and challenges of this hour. David couldn't fight with another man's armor or with his revelation. David had to stand on his own faith, and in his relationship with Me." Jesus looked at me and stated, "I am going to violently awaken My Church, and they will be forced to develop their own faith, and develop a deep seated intimacy with Me that I require for this generation. When she fully commits to Me, then I can fashion her into a vessel fit for My use, and then she will effectively pour out for Me! Only 5% are ready to be used by Me right now. You have seen a great event that is even now underway in your day. I will greatly accelerate it now. I have told My Church to prepare for change, but they have not really listened to Me. So what I will do now will shock them awake, and they shall see that I am jealous for them and for their love for Me. I will reveal Myself to her, and I will recreate her in the midst of the shaking and the breaking, and the world will wonder what I will be making, for I shall cause the world to see My Handiwork clearly. As My People change, the world shall change. It is time for great change." - I then woke up.
Isaiah 45:8 Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it. 9 Woe to him who strives with his Maker!--a worthless piece of broken pottery among other pieces equally worthless [and yet presuming to strive with his Maker]! Shall the clay say to him who fashions it, What do you think you are making? or, Your work has no handles?
Isaiah 64:7 And no one calls on Your name and awakens and bestirs himself to take and keep hold of You; for You have hidden Your face from us and have delivered us into the [consuming] power of our iniquities. 8 Yet, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our Potter, and we all are the work of Your hand. 9 Do not be exceedingly angry, O Lord, or [seriously] remember iniquity forever. Behold, consider, we beseech You, we are all Your people.
Romans 9:21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same mass (lump) one vessel for beauty and distinction and honorable use, and another for menial or ignoble and dishonorable use? 22 What if God, although fully intending to show [the awfulness of] His wrath and to make known His power and authority, has tolerated with much patience the vessels (objects) of [His] anger which are ripe for destruction?
I then asked Patrick when John F. Kennedy became president when he woke up, and Patrick said "1960." Patrick said that William Branham had a vision from God, and had prophesied on January 16th,1956 about the coming of John F. Kennedy. he also said that Bob Jones had prophesied in the 1995 Shepherds Rod about this 40 year period of wandering we as a nation had be in: An excerpt from the article:
** On January 16, 1956 in Chicago, Illinois, Bro. William Branham, at the direction of the Holy Spirit, announced, "America turns down her opportunity". At that time the Lord instructed this prophet to communicate to this nation that she had been a great nation but she had turned down the gospel message and rejected the truth and now faced certain judgment as was shown to Bro. Branham in a vision. He went on to prophesy that America would eventually elect a president that would be a, "stylish, playboy type of a man, a real ladies man and because of the woman's vote would be elected to office". Only a few short years later a president was elected into office meeting these exact credentials.
When Israel rejected her opportunity to enter into God's rest she was required to return to the wilderness to wander 40 years for the remainder of that generation. Yet while in the wilderness Israel continued to experience God's manifested power by the pillar of fire by night and the cloud by day, eating manna from heaven and drinking water from the smitten rock. It was during this period of time that Moses supernaturally received the revelation of God's word speaking with the Lord face to face as a friend. Yet they everyone died in the wilderness, with the exception of Joshua and Caleb, and the following generation had to return to Kadesh-Barnea under the leadership of Joshua in order to enter into God's rest.
Patrick then stated that the 95% mentioned by the Lord in my dream also was tied to the '95 Shepherds Rod revelations.
I then read more of the 1995 article, and I was also shocked to see that Bob had also put in scriptures and many of the same things I had been studying on earlier regarding the horns of power and the horns of the enemy, before I had laid down to sleep!
Excerpt from the 1995 Shepherd's Rod:
THE SMITH’S OF THE LORD
The Holy Spirit announced, "See the smiths of the Lord at work— by My Spirit says the Lord". These are the smiths or workmen found in Zechariah 1:20-21— Then the LORD showed me four craftsmen. I said, "What are these coming to do?" And he said, "These are the horns which have scattered Judah so that no man lifts up his head; but these craftsmen have come to terrify them, to throw down the horns of the nations who have lifted up their horns against the land of Judah in order to scatter it."
The faithful workmen symbolized by this passage will be forming new weapons and will be armed from the heavenly armory sent forth to beat down the horns or powers of the enemy. The "smiths" or workmen are soon emerging to terrorize the powers of the adversary and cause them to become panic stricken and begin casting out the powers of the nations that lifted up their strength against God's people. We will begin to see this starting to take shape in this season of the Spirit. This move of the Spirit will introduce a strong spirit of conviction that is coming to the body of Christ causing many to wash their garments or robes and prepare themselves for service. Their scripture will be Isaiah 62:3— You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Ps 95: 6-11 Come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you would hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness; "When your fathers tested me, they tried me, though they had seen My work. "For forty years I loathed that generation, and said they are a people who err in their heart, and they do not know My ways. "Therefore I swore in My anger, truly they shall not enter into My rest."
Psalms 75:10 says all the horns of the wicked He will cut off, but the righteous will be lifted up. This will be a time to embrace Christ and the Cross and begin to experience the full atonement that His precious blood purchased even in the midst of great storms that will cover this nation.

Patrick then said that the scripture for my dream is found in:
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
The Lord is being very clear to His People that He is bringing great change, necessary changes, so that we can fulfill our destiny! Let Him show you where you have missed His path, if any, and then let Him bring a course correction into your life. Give Him everything, and fully surrender your will to His, let Him fashion you new, into a glorious workmanship, a vessel ready for His use!
