During my Bible reading time, this section of scripture was part of my reading schedule. As sometimes happens, what I’m reading jumps out to me and it carries “extra weight.” It seems as if the Holy Spirit is shining a light on the verses and telling me to pay close attention and listen because He’s going to speak.
So, here I’ve inserted the section and added letters for my commentary. Please read through the section first and then the commentary points that I’ve added in. These points are what I think I hear the Spirit saying to me.
“The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron: “When you enter the land of Canaan that I am giving you as a possession, and I place a mildew contamination in a house in the land you possess [A], the owner of the house is to come and tell the priest: Something like mildew contamination has appeared in my house [B]. The priest must order them to clear the house [C] before he enters to examine the contamination, so that nothing in the house becomes unclean. Afterward the priest will come to examine the house [D]. He will examine it, and if the contamination in the walls of the house consists of green or red indentations that appear to be beneath the surface of the wall, the priest is to go outside the house to its doorway and quarantine the house for seven days [E]. The priest is to return on the seventh day and examine it. If the contamination has spread [F] on the walls of the house, the priest must order that the stones with the contamination be pulled out and thrown into an unclean place outside the city [G]. He is to have the inside of the house completely scraped [H], and the plaster that is scraped off must be dumped in an unclean place outside the city [I]. Then they must take different stones to replace the former ones [J] and take additional plaster to replaster the house.” (Leviticus 14:33-42)
[A] In the Torah, mildew in a home is a manifestation of corruption. Some rabbis teach that it is simply an outward manifestation of an inward, hidden corruption. Either way, it must be addressed. The Lord has given this land to our ancestors to possess. This doesn’t exclude anyone … native-born or immigrant. We became a nation in stewardship of this land when the founding documents were signed. This whole land is a trust from the Lord to the people who live here. There will be times when the Lord will clearly show His thoughts and feelings about how we’re exercising this trust. The leadership is held accountable for the people whether they like it or not. They represent the people and have a great deal of influence over the direction and affairs of this nation. The Lord also holds the people accountable for the leaders they place in these positions of power. The Lord will show his pleasure or displeasure by obvious signs that manifest in the halls of power. This includes the White House itself. There are some manifestations that may be natural in form but are supernatural in appearance. When such out-of-the-ordinary signs occur, they indicate a time of the Lord’s testing and evaluating has commenced. I believe that this manifestation will likely be literal regarding the White House, and figurative regarding the Congress and this land, our national home.
[B] Who is the owner of the house, i.e. the places of power, in this nation? Who has been tasked with determining who resides in the White House? The people of this nation. Though many groups and power players have tried, and even succeeded, in swaying/stealing elections, the Lord still holds the people of this nation accountable for who is in power. It is ultimately in their hand to determine who our leaders will be. It is only through sloth, indifference, greed, rebellion, and the like that we allow sin to prevail in our halls of power, specifically the White House. It is up to us (the owner of the house) to call out to God (Jesus, the High Priest) and report what appears to be a contamination (manifestations of sin) taking root in our “house.” I believe that the people of this nation will be and are being prompted by the Holy Spirit to cry out to the Lord for a time of intense and unhindered national examination because of the indicators of corruption manifesting in every area of our society.
[C-D] When called on, the Lord will begin a time of examination of the “house.” But doesn’t the Lord always see the state things are in? Yes. However, in Genesis 18 the Lord had “heard” about Sodom and Gomorrah’s wickedness, but “drew near” through His angels to personally examine the rot in the land before He acted. I believe there’s coming a time when the Lord will draw near to the United States and expose the deep corruption in this nation. It could be a reason or an event where the occupants and workers in the White House will have to physically clear out of the White House for a time. It could be a suspension of Congressional activity. But this is speculation. I do believe though, that the Lord will clear things out and expose them as a sign to show that He’s doing a complete examination of where we are at as a nation.
[E] If the Lord finds evidence of corruption and its source, I believe He will shut down the White House/Congress/this nation for a period of time to see if the corruption is so bad that it continues to manifest and spread, systematic/entrenched in society or if such a shut-down will show the limit of the corruption, i.e. only certain people in power.
[F] After the shut-down, the Lord will reexamine the White House/Congress/nation.
[G] If the corruption continues, He Himself will begin removing the people responsible for causing the corruption and flinging them out of Washington. On a national scale this could also be a time of people being flung out of this country that are causing great corruption within our society.
[H] This is going to be a stunning, jaw-dropping time. What would it be like if the President and members of Congress are suddenly removed from office due to this exposure by the Lord to the point where the White House and many seats in Congress are unoccupied, i.e. the house scraped clean?
[I] Those exposed for their corruption will be ejected from Washington. Possibly the country?
[J] The Lord will then replace them with others who will be tasked with governing His trust with righteousness.
“If the contamination reappears in the house [K] after the stones have been pulled out, and after the house has been scraped and replastered, the priest must come and examine it [L]. If the contamination has spread in the house, it is harmful mildew; the house is unclean [M]. It must be torn down [N] with its stones, its beams, and all its plaster, and taken outside the city to an unclean place. Whoever enters the house during any of the days the priest quarantines it will be unclean [O] until evening. Whoever lies down in the house is to wash his clothes, and whoever eats in it is to wash his clothes.” (Leviticus 14:43-47)
[K] Power can corrupt and draws the corruptible. Corruption may reappear. Those entrusted with stewardship may again fall into sin and wickedness. If this applies to our society as well, then sin and wickedness will manifest by again being tolerated, embraced, and practiced.
[L] The Lord will reexamine our leaders and our people.
[M] If corruption continues to spread, then we run the risk of being declared “unclean”, i.e. unable to commune/live with the Lord.
[N] Our nation will become spiritually hopeless and open to complete destruction.
[O] Before destruction comes, there will be a time when those who follow the Lord must leave or be affected by the corruption and caught up in the destruction. Lot and Sodom and Gomorrah.
“But when the priest comes and examines it, if the contamination has not spread [P] in the house after it was replastered, he is to pronounce the house clean [Q] because the contamination has disappeared. He is to take two birds, cedar wood, scarlet yarn, and hyssop to purify the house, and he is to slaughter one of the birds over a clay pot containing fresh water. He will take the cedar wood, the hyssop, the scarlet yarn, and the live bird, dip them in the blood of the slaughtered bird and the fresh water, and sprinkle the house seven times. He will purify the house with the blood of the bird, the fresh water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop, and the scarlet yarn. Then he is to release the live bird into the open countryside outside the city [R]. In this way he will make atonement for the house [S], and it will be clean.” (Leviticus 14:48-53)
[P-Q] The good news is that corruption doesn’t have to spread if the causes of it are addressed and remedied by repentance, i.e. if we change our ways to walk God’s way. If we reach that point, the Lord will pronounce us “clean”, able to commune with Him and He with us.
[R-S] We and our leaders will have to go through a cleansing ceremony or process to indicate our recommitment to the Lord. This will close a dark chapter on our nation’s history and set us on a renewed course.
Is this a prophecy? Not sure. A revelation? Perhaps. I only offer it for your consideration. If it does come about, then the Lord in His mercy has prepared us ahead of time.
We need a jolt to awaken us from our stupor. We need a loving "slap in the face" to jolt us back to reality and out of our present insanity and sexual anarchy—kind of like a parent reaching the saturation point with a rebellious smart-mouthed teenager constantly talking back disrespectfully and mocking parental authority. ~Charisma News
Let's stop kidding ourselves; apart from divine intervention in holy judgment, America will simply slide deeper down the spiral of sin and destruction. We are deceived if we buy into the misguided approach of many who believe there will eventually come some kind of backlash to all our wickedness, corruption and brazen immorality. ~Charisma News
God's judgments are intended to bring people to repentance so they can be blessed and live in union with Him as a bride with her bridegroom. God's zeal is designed to purge the earth of all rebellion. Will we rise to the occasion and embrace a call to pray some gutsy, muscular prayers for both justice and the necessary judgments to bring this to pass? We don't have a lot of time left. ~Charisma News
How much time do we have?
