I had a recurring vision in California on 10-22-15. In the vision, I was standing with the Lord and we had hip waders on, and we were standing waist deep in a vast watery place that was oozing with putrefying filth. The water was black and churning, and was spiritually very wicked. I wondered why we were both standing here. The Lord just stood there looking at the writhing waters for a few minutes. His expression was unreadable by me, so I just stood there beside Him waiting. After a few minutes he finally turned to me, and his eyes were now on fire. He said to me:
"This is place is called the Cup of Iniquity. This vast place is the representation of the fruits of iniquity that still flow unchecked in men's hearts and minds. I am the Creator and I am also the Lord of the earth, but this is what men do give birth. You are here to understand that a new day has dawned, and that I shall have mature Sons who will redeem that which has been polluted and that which has been left to bear evil fruit. It is time to understand that that has been given into your hands. It is not my desire to see this cup become full. It is my desire see that My Sons learn to rule. It is time to declare Liberty to the earthly and carnal cesspools. It is time to remit the sin, to turn from all rebellion, and its time to let righteousness flow in. It is time to birth forth righteousness in the earth. For as you all do, My Life will flow in, and Salvation will grow! You also are here to know and understand that which is about to be poured out in the lands, and as it is allowed to come to full fruition, I shall then thoroughly rout the evil roots out. I am going to deal with the hidden iniquity that men do not think I see.”
“I desire to fill this dark place with My Saving Grace, and that men would again repentantly seek My Face. I am here to heal the waters so My people can drink and live, and also so they can flourish in their knowledge of Me. Men are to look only at Me!" His eyes then blazed even more. He said, "My Glory is currently pouring into the earth. Men must realize that they cannot continue to partake of My Glory and still love their hidden things. The natural floods and intense events that I am allowing to occur in the earth in your time are a sign. I am speaking everywhere through everything, but few are listening to Me. So, I will deal with the weight of the burden of iniquity, with Me! It's time for you all to rule in the midst of great iniquity; and to steward the process of the healing of the nations with Me! My Government has only just begun to flow in the earth, but with My ready men- I am ready to begin! Wait upon Me, for in your time, I shall interrupt history! I am coming to reveal through My Sons amazing and glorious things, and in your days, My Redemptive Faces they will see!"
As I opened my bible program, it opened right up to 2 King 2:19-22:
19. And the men of the city said to Elisha, Behold, inhabiting of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees, but the water is bad and the locality causes miscarriage and barrenness [in all animals]. 20. He said, Bring me a new bowl and put salt [the symbol of God's purifying power] in it. And they brought it to him. 21. Then Elisha went to the spring of the waters and cast the salt in it and said, Thus says the Lord: I [not the salt] have healed these waters; there shall not be any more death, miscarriage or barrenness [and bereavement] because of it. 22. So the waters were healed to this day, as Elisha had said.
The authority to remit the sin:
Matthew 9:6 But in order that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins and remit the penalty, He then said to the paralyzed man, Get up! Pick up your sleeping pad and go to your own house.
John 20:19-23 So when it was evening on that same day, the first day of the week, though the disciples were meeting behind barred doors for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them, and said, “Peace to you.” After He said this, He showed them His hands and His side. When the disciples saw the Lord, they were filled with great joy. Then Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you as My representatives.” And when He said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of anyone they are forgiven because of their faith; if you retain the sins of anyone, they are retained and remain unforgiven because of their unbelief.”
Mark 2:6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, holding a dialogue with themselves as they questioned in their hearts, 7 Why does this Man talk like this? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins [remove guilt, remit the penalty, and bestow righteousness instead] except God alone? 8 And at once Jesus, becoming fully aware in His spirit that they thus debated within themselves, said to them, Why do you argue (debate, reason) about all this in your hearts? 9 Which is easier: to say to the paralyzed man, Your sins are forgiven and put away, or to say, Rise, take up your sleeping pad or mat, and start walking about [and keep on walking]? 10 But that you may know positively and beyond a doubt that the Son of Man has right and authority and power on earth to forgive sins—He said to the paralyzed man, 11 I say to you, arise, pick up and carry your sleeping pad or mat, and be going on home. 12 And he arose at once and picked up the sleeping pad or mat and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and recognized and praised and thanked God, saying, We have never seen anything like this before!
The kitchen sink example: The Scraps and Plugs
The accumulation of Sin and Leaven: Individuals, the Church, Cities, Nations, etc…
Jeremiah 33:24 Have you not noticed that these people [the Jews] are saying, The Lord has cast off the two families [Israel and Judah] which He chose? Thus My people have despised [themselves in relation to God as His covenant people], so that they are no more a nation in their [own] sight.
The Covenant and the Bonds of iniquity:
Genesis 17:1. AFTER THESE things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram, I am your Shield, your abundant compensation, and your reward shall be exceedingly great. 2. And Abram said, Lord God, what can You give me, since I am going on [from this world] childless and he who shall be the owner and heir of my house is this [steward] Eliezer of Damascus? 3. And Abram continued, Look, You have given me no child; and [a servant] born in my house is my heir. 4. And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, This man shall not be your heir, but he who shall come from your own body shall be your heir. 5. And He brought him outside [his tent into the starlight] and said, Look now toward the heavens and count the stars–if you are able to number them. Then He said to him, So shall your descendants be. [Heb. 11:12.] 6. And he [Abram] believed in (trusted in, relied on, remained steadfast to) the Lord, and He counted it to him as righteousness (right standing with God). [Rom. 4:3, 18-22; Gal. 3:6; James 2:23.] 7. And He said to him, I am the [same] Lord, Who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees to give you this land as an inheritance. 8. But he [Abram] said, Lord God, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it? 9. And He said to him, Bring to Me a heifer three years old, a she-goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon. 10. And he brought Him all these and cut them down the middle [into halves] and laid each half opposite the other; but the birds he did not divide. 11. And when the birds of prey swooped down upon the carcasses, Abram drove them away. 12. When the sun was setting, a deep sleep overcame Abram, and a horror (a terror, a shuddering fear) of great darkness assailed and oppressed him. 13. And [God] said to Abram, Know positively that your descendants will be strangers dwelling as temporary residents in a land that is not theirs [Egypt], and they will be slaves there and will be afflicted and oppressed for 400 years. [Fulfilled in Exod. 12:40.] 14. But I will bring judgment on that nation whom they will serve, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. [Acts 7:6, 7.] 15. And you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old (hoary) age. 16. And in the fourth generation they [your descendants] shall come back here [to Canaan] again, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full and complete. [Josh. 24:15.] 17. When the sun had gone down and a [thick] darkness had come on, behold, a smoking oven and a flaming torch passed between those pieces. 18. On the same day the Lord made a covenant (promise, pledge) with Abram, saying, To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates–the land of 19. The Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, 20. The Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21. The Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
The Covenant of Salt
Leviticus 2:13. Every cereal offering you shall season with salt [symbol of preservation]; neither shall you allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your cereal offering; with all your offerings you shall offer salt. [Mark 9:49, 50.]
Numbers 18:19. All the heave offerings [the lifted-out and kept portions] of the holy things which the Israelites give to the Lord I give to you and to your sons and your daughters with you, as a continual debt forever. It is a covenant of salt [that cannot be dissolved or violated] forever before the Lord for you [Aaron] and for your posterity with you.
2 Chronicles 13:5. Ought you not to know that the Lord, the God of Israel, gave the kingship over Israel to David forever, even to him and to his sons by a covenant of salt?
Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.
Haggai 2:23 In that day, says the Lord of hosts, will I take you, O Zerubbabel, My servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the Lord, and will make you [through the Messiah, your descendant] My signet ring; for I have chosen you [as the one with whom to renew My covenant to David’s line], says the Lord of hosts.
Zechariah 9:11 As for you also, because of and for the sake of the [covenant of the Lord with His people, which was sealed with sprinkled] covenant blood, I have released and sent forth your imprisoned people out of the waterless pit.
The New Bowl Principle:
Zechariah 4:1. And THE angel who talked with me came again and awakened me, like a man who is wakened out of his sleep. 2. And said to me, What do you see? I said, I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold, with its bowl [for oil] on the top of it and its seven lamps on it, and [there are] seven pipes to each of the seven lamps which are upon the top of it. [Matt. 5:14, 16; Luke 12:35; Phil. 2:15; Rev. 1:20.] 3. And there are two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl and the other upon the left side of it [feeding it continuously with oil]. [Rev. 11:4-13.] 4. So I asked the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord? 5. Then the angel who talked with me answered me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. 6. Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a symbol], says the Lord of hosts. 7. For who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him] you shall become a plain [a mere molehill]! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone [of the new temple] with loud shoutings of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it! [Ezra 4:1-5, 24; Isa. 40:4.]
The Veil of Iniquity example:
Isaiah 25:6. And on this Mount [Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make for all peoples a feast of rich things [symbolic of His coronation festival inaugurating the reign of the Lord on earth, in the wake of a background of gloom, judgment, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees–of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.7. And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. 8. He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. [I Cor. 15:26, 54; II Tim. 1:10.] 9. It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. 10. For the hand of the Lord shall rest on this Mount [Zion], and Moab shall be threshed and trodden down in his place as straw is trodden down in the [filthy] water of a [primitive] cesspit. 11. And though [Moab] stretches forth his hands in the midst of [the filthy water] as a swimmer stretches out his hands to swim, the Lord will bring down [Moab's] pride in spite of the skillfulness of his hands and together with the spoils of his hands. 12. And the high fortifications of your walls [the Lord] will bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
