|The Gate Of Ephraim|
The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin. And
unto Joseph in the
And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Jehovah. And his delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears; but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his waist, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins. And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the root of Jesse, that standeth for an ensign of the peoples, unto him shall the nations seek; and his resting-place shall be glorious. Isaiah 11:1-10 American Standard Version
The Gate of Ephriam ( This is the Gate associated with Levi ): Increasing fruitfulness because of association with the King.
One of the most curious things
about Manneseh and Ephriam was their apostasy from the Lord, the rise in them
through scripture of their personal iniquity. These two sons of Joseph are seen
later as nations contradicting the will of God in His purposes for
One of the things that the Overcomers need to overcome is disunity and separation one from another. The separations in times past have been of God to work individually on each individual and to do a deep and a perfect work in their spiritual lives. I am now prophesying that the Overcomers, more and more, will come jointed together to form a fruitful tree for the Lord to partake of. A tree which is His planting, a tree which counteracts the death and dirge we have in this present evil world. We know that denominational Christianity has not had any unity whatsoever, but instead wars and factions abound in them. Those that are called to one day be granted place upon the Throne with the Lord, they called out of all the systems, are learning obedience, even in the little things. Even in the strangest of things. They are learning obedience by their sufferings, and by these same storms of life they will now learn to join in perfect unity one to another with NO wars and NO factions. As vessels of love inwardly, and gnarled and beaten by the storms of life outwardly, they will come, “one with one on one” to be joined perfectly in love in the Spirit of the Lord.
So I am now prophesying in view of the Gate of Ephraim that our times of separation and solitude are fast drawing to a close. We will come together, joint to joint to become a unified body of people whom Christ shall appear in and glorify. We’ve known what it meant to be few and far between, now we will know what it means to be an Army, a company of those who walk forward in the perfect nature of God who is a consuming fire. We have known what it means to have God deal intricately with every small area in us which is contrary to His perfect will, now we in that perfect will shall emerge as one man in unity and oneness and interdependence that cannot and will not ever be destroyed. No carnality will be in our coming together, no disunity of any kind, and nothing that would bring any dishonor to the Lord at all. The Lord has singled out His Overcomers for the first true show of unity that the world has never seen. A unity and oneness that is to be revealed in perfection and holiness with no taint of the carnal mind in it anywhere. Out of the hidden places, out of the byways and the highways. Out of the wilderness and the cities, from every quarter, God is now going to bring together His overcoming company.
That is what I am prophesying.
The entire purpose of God in bringing forth first a company of Overcomers into perfect unity and oneness is most intriguing and is an example of His great power. Even the power of the cross, but better than that, the power of resurrection. His entire purpose was to enact His will on this fallen creation through a company of those who bear fruit unto God. This is but a small measure, one tree out of the field, one group out of the whole. Selected and hand picked by the Holy Spirit, these were separated unto God and they came apart alone unto Him to have His will worked into them and to learn what it means to surrender themselves, even unto the death of the cross.
I am prophesying that the cross will very soon be completed in the Overcomers.
The world, the systems of men,
the denominations of Christianity, the religions of the world will more and
more become disjointed, more violent, more brash, more unloving, more uncaring,
more suicidal and more base in their hatred of a love for the truth. In other
words, the line has been firmly drawn, it is distinct, it is a line that
separates the Overcoming company from the rest of the world and their futile
efforts to find peace. The Overcomers will now arise above this all, not
looking in fear at what is happening on the earth, but looking instead for the
restitution of all THIS creation into the
In this very minute of this very hour the Overcomers have come to a very fixed point. They have no strength, ability, motivation or desire other than to just behold the Lord and to love and worship Him. The Holy Spirit has worked in them to bring them to a place where they know nothing except Him in them. They have no idea how to maneuver, how to stand, how to speak, how to think, everything related to their lives in this world has been taken from them. They stand upon the earth at this time with nothing of their own. They know not wisdom, except it be God’s wisdom. They know not work, except it be God’s work. They may work at jobs, or have elements of wealth in the world and be worth things in a monetary sense, but in their spirits they are separate from even that, knowing that everything is futile except the Lord do this in them for His purposes. At the very same time they have come to a place where they do not always know what is right in their responses. They don’t always know what is from the element of God’s Spirit and what comes from deception. They stand in a dangerous place. A place of having a slight fear that something could happen and they would turn off the right path and head into a pathway of delusion. They may not know at all times which part of the Lord is being made real to them and which part is from perdition. It is that element of not knowing which keeps them pressing in to the love of the truth. Such is the workings of God to bring forth the race track to come to the end of their testings. The Overcomers know that they need to hear a pure word, a true word that can direct them to emerge from this time as victors in the camp of the righteous. For we have entered the most perilous of times.
The roots of the fruitful tree they have grown together to become begins in this cursed world. So it is that the journey of the Overcomer has been out of this world and its cursed soil, while at the same time having a nature and a name which is born of Heaven and of the Spirit of their Heavenly Father. Both elements have worked in the life of the Overcomer as an interplay of good and evil, of right from wrong and of truth from error. Both elements have been a fractioned war within, a raging debate, a fearsome battle of magnificent proportions which leaves the poor soul wondering if they can ever conquer anything as relates to their life in this world. When they would have faith, the element of doubt assails them. When they have fear and dread, hope arises to console their troubled thoughts. When they bore accusation because of their own carnality, the mind of Christ gently and tenderly revealed to them of His great love and forgiveness. These who are overcoming have borne persecutions against their very lives in the earth, and at the same time they do no harm to their persecutors, not even a small curse or negative thought. They learned to take on them the yielded nature of Jesus, and to be as ones who overcame the enemies of their souls by simple obedience to His Word as it is revealed unto them. These are the footfalls of those who traverse this earth who are born of the Heavenly order. These are their steps, one after another, in conquering all in them that is contrary to His cross, nailing all their flesh there and trusting Christ completely to raise them again at the last day.
To these now I prophesy that they will come together in the Gate of Ephraim to bear fruit unto God. And because of this fruit, the whole of the earth will be in time filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. We have heard this again and again, and have waited and waited, and have wondered “how long will it be until the Lord finishes this work?” Trials that were hard yesterday seem much harder today, and what we once bore in testings pales in comparison to the testings we are now in. The deceptions seem more subtle. The nuances of carnal reasonings seem more acute in tempting us to think according to the natural mind. Instead of becoming more Holy, we seem to become more grounded in the earth and rooted in that which we detest. Instead of being minded with the mind of Christ, we find ourselves slaving over the toil of work that this world affords to us. The Overcomers seem hopelessly caught up in nothing. They seem more confined than ever before. The storms of life seem hurtful, not beneficial and God seems further away, not closer. Flesh and carnality arises in them rather than the fruit of goodness by Jesus who is also in their lives. What they want, they don’t seem to have and what they don’t want seems to consume them. This is the present world of the Overcomer. In all honesty, they don’t know how they can go one more step forward as it has become a complete mystery to them as to how they can conquer anything.
That is exactly what God was
waiting to see in His Overcoming company. It is those, who bear the thought of
uselessness that He will now appear in and will confirm with the brightness of
His coming. The full measure of flesh has grown up in them and so has the full
measure of the stature of Christ. Right now, the Overcomers cannot always
perceive Christ in them, but that is because their duality has come to the
full. Now God is about to judge those that He calls His OVERCOMERS. In that
judgment God will find fruit on the branches of a gnarled tree, and that fruit
will signal the next stage in the great creator’s plan to bring all the earth
back into an Edenic state. For this will give God Himself the ability to now move
forward in the earth in great mercy to restore all things. The Overcomers who
bear this fruit in the Gate of Ephraim will be the vessels through whom this
eternal purpose will happen. The Overcomers have become nothing, and God now
has become everything. Now we will see the redemption Christ wrought for all
men upon Calvary be completed and His purpose finished and mankind and this
fallen globe of the earth will come into the
So Dear Overcomer, the reader of this page, allow yourself to fall into despair. Allow yourself to fall away into a lack of knowledge, a lack of understanding, a lack of life. Fall into this knowing that you are as a seed sown in death in the ground, but know that because of your sacrifice God will have fruit to eat, and His will shall be done through you.
Are you not glad that this is not based on what you think or decide with your puny human will? Are you not glad that the Lord in bringing forth His full person will be done because YOU became nothing? Are you not glad you submitted to His will in all things that He might finish His perfect work in you, even when you had no clue as to what that working was? The separations were painful, the trials fearsome, hard, hurtful. But the END OF THIS IS NOW IN PLAIN VIEW.
Walk on Overcomer, step now into this place of complete surrender. God is about to consume you and you will never be the same.
“And I looked, and behold The Gate of Benjamin: Son of the Father’s Right Hand. And I was glad for the Lord revealed to me THE THRONE OF HIS MAJESTY.
