The Gate Of Gad


“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”  Joel 2:1-11 KJV


“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” 2 Peter 3:10-14 KJV


When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife. And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son. And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad. Genesis 30:9-11 KJV


Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.  Revelation 7:5 KJV

( Two Visions )

( 1st Vision )

“Then the Angel which was supporting me took me up and beside the Gate of Gad wherein I saw a most fearsome sight. The Gate was opened wide and standing in the arches of the Gate and out toward the earth was the fully assembled Army of the Lord. An Army of great people, a strong people, I have not ever seen such an Army to be so feared as this Army of the Lord.


They stood in perfect order, rank upon rank, order upon order, each one in place in perfect rows with each one being identical in the armoring of a soldier representing the Lord in His power and purpose. They stood from the entrance of the Gate of Gad facing outwards towards the earth and they were at this first point standing still.


Above them I saw the Lord bending over the Army in the atmosphere above their heads. I could see the side of the Lord, His flowing garments and the strength of his thigh I could see through the garments he wore. The garments were very hard for me to see as the Lord was covered in a thick dark cloud above the Army. I could see the side of His face and of His hairs and I could see His forehead furrowed with deep wrath and intensity. The Lord stretched Himself out over the heads of His Army, perfectly aligning His body with the line of the Army that stood in the Gate of Gad. As the Lord stretched forth His body over the heads of the Army I saw Him open His mouth and utter speech which I could not comprehend or hear correctly. It was not verbiage, but FIRE which came forth of the speech of the Lord over His Army. Not words, but an utterance, the fruit of which were huge billows of fire enfolding in upon itself laced with dark smoke and much tumult in the billowing of the flames.


As soon as the Lord uttered His voice the fire came forth from Him. It must be noted that to look upon His face was to look upon the Jasper and the Sardine stone, these stones of Grace and Wrath, of Love and of Fury.


“And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.”     Revelation 4:3 KJV


The anger of the Lord was kindled in this fire which was now over the heads of His Troops and came forth in front of their ranks before them. The fire now went forth before the Army and as it did, the Army began to march forward in the billowing flames of fire and began to traverse the earth. There was a great noise as the Army went forward, with huge billowing flames of fire round about them and over them and in front of them. I saw the earth give way before their weight and the earth crumbled to dust under the footfalls of these whom the Lord had called His “Overcomers”. There was no place on the earth that the total destruction of this Army did not touch. And I saw that just as the Jasper and the Sardine Stones were visible in the face of God, even so the Army marched forward in the very same Jasper and Sardine Stone, both the Love and the Wrath of God. “

( End 1st Vision )


( 2nd Vision )

“ I beheld the end ranks of the Army going forward and behind them was Jesus walking. As He walked the earth and the nations around the earth came as little children to Jesus and He embraced them and held them and succored each one who came out of the destroyed earth unto Him. Each one in turn came to Jesus, many children from all corners of the earth would come. These were people from all walks of life, coming to Jesus as though they were little children for Christ had said “Suffer the little children to come unto Me”. Each one, even if they were adults, came as little children.”  Mark 10:14.

( End 2nd Vision )


The Gate of Gad: A band, a troop, and Army. Now we come to the Gate of Gad and see that it represent to us two stark contrasts. For this Gate represents several aspects of the timing and the workings of the Spirit of the Lord in both the Heavens and the Earth THROUGH those who have overcome. For anyone to come to this Gate, they must come as ones fully yielded to the Father, readied at any time to do His will and to finish His workings in the earth. This Gate wide open with the color of Pearl represents two aspects of God’s grace towards His creation. The first His unfathomable love for this creation and His plan to restore creation to an Edenic state, and secondly the Grace of God in this Gate will teach mankind to FORGET and have BURNED FROM THEM all semblance of the former cursed earth. For God has cursed this present creation and has lived separate from man as relates to governments and kingdoms. God has remained above while the earth below has been cursed because of Adam’s disobedience in the garden of Eden. It is this Gate which displays to our understanding the perfect will of God towards His creation and His purpose in consummating all things in Christ.


Standing within the Gate of Gad will be the fully assembled company of Overcomers, those who have overcome all trials and testings and have come through their lives as ones fully trusting their savior to keep them and hold them unto His perfect will. It is here within the arches of this Gate that the Army will gather in Bodies Glorified, in bodies of flesh and blood of the NEW Creation, not of the old. As the Army of God gathers here, they will have NO duality, NO division, NO death in them. They will be New Creations, in New Bodies eternal, Bodies from above, made new and ranked and ordered after the full intent and purpose of God. These are they who Christ at His appearing came to and gathered unto Himself in the 1st resurrection being raised from the dead or out from among those who are subject to death.


“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”   Revelation 20:4-6 KJV


In the world today the kingdoms of men and the governments of the world through the United Nations, NATO and other agencies strive together to create an amicable peace between themselves. Nation after nation sends ambassadors to their gathered political assemblies to create and maintain peace and dialogue between themselves. Whenever a nation arises to overpower another war is the result. Since the time of Jesus historically, there has only been part of one single year in human history which has not had a war somewhere in the earth. Every other year since the time of Christ until now has had war somewhere amongst men. Truly, carnal politics in the minds of men and world leaders are not able to bring this peace that is needed. Not only so, but this peace is continually tested through the race of weapon building and armaments which are dreadful in their power and ability to destroy creation. As a result we have nations in continual peaceful dialogue to prevent even more horrific wars and conflagrations which would decimate what is left of this earthen home.


The other aspect of the nations of the earth in their separations from God is the continual prominence of leaders and kingdoms. Men are continually being voted into office or usurping power or ruling and reigning as monarchs in the earth amongst the nations. There is a continual electoral battle as Babylon political gainsays people into coercing them to trust in the arms of flesh. In every case man has failed to bring just rule and has caused the nations to eventually become weary with the continual struggle for balance and political peace.


Not just so, but the nations of the earth also work together through various groups, agencies, governments and kingdoms to preserve and protect the environment and the natural health of the earth. Where ever man lives, the earth and the environment is effected. Pollutions from the advancement of man in invention and employment has caused the earth to reel under the weight of what we call ‘progress’. The mining and acquiring of the earth’s resources and petroleum has polluted the land, air and water as never before in history. The industry of man has always caused the earth to be tainted.


Into this mix of world history the Lord will introduce His Army.

Those whom Jesus called His “Overcomers”.

These whom He has raised out from among the dead.


The Army of the Lord is the future working of God in the earth. One of the next things that God will do ( and I say this prophetically ) is to manifest and march forward THIS ARMY. And the Army of the Lord will be fearsome indeed. For this Army WILL UTTERLY DESTROY THE DOMINIONS AND KINGDOMS OF MEN. THIS ARMY WILL TOTALLY DESTROY THIS NATURAL EARTHEN CREATION. There will not be one molecule of the earth that will not be consumed by the fire of God that engulfs and enfolds in upon itself through the forward marching of this Army. This Army will ‘blacken’ the faces of the peoples. “At their presence the peoples are in anguish; all faces are waxed pale.” Joel 2:6 ASV  This Army coming forth from the Gate of Gad will utterly destroy this world entirely, nothing of the former earth and world system will remain. The Army of the Lord in its forward march will completely bring to utter burning and destruction and ruin everything that was a partaker of the fall away from the Lord in the original garden of Eden and of partaking of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil.


None of the newscasts will survive this. None of the governments or kingdoms, monarchs or political leaders will be able to do anything at all about it. A little troop is coming dear reader, those who overcame as Jesus overcame, and this little troop, this little insignificant cast out number of people, small in numbers, will utterly destroy all that relates to the present world you see now in your newscasts. There is no nation, strong or weak which this Army will not completely decimate. There is no financial system or money system which this Army will not completely disannul and make completely useless. There will be no army on the earth which can touch these. The armies of the nations can amass their weaponry and missiles and artillery and point them and fire them at the Army of the Lord if they want and it will have no effect whatsoever on this troop, for they are in Glorified Bodies. The world could try to resist them, but they will totally fail in that resistance. They can try to hide from them, but there is nowhere to hide. There is a future element coming to this world in its politics, economies and religions which is an element and an answer from the Lord Himself. And that element is the little marching Army of His own Overcomers. These will totally destroy what you see around you.


Look upon the newscasts, the state of the world, the state of world economies or the religions that are raging one against the other or religion against politics or national identities. Look upon them and see that they will be no more. For this little Troop from the Gate of Gad WILL TOTALLY DESTROY EVERYTHING IN THIS PRESENT WORLD. It matters not now if treaties are signed, if a nation rises against a nation or a kingdom against a kingdom. It matters not if man invents new ways of having nicer technology or if monies increase and men gain wealth. It matters not if man saves for retirement or for their future life in this world. It matters not if there be tumults and strife of one person over another or of courts or lawmakers or decisions as relates to individuals, corp-orations, kingdoms or nations. It matters not for all of this, every single bit of it is destined FOR THE FIRE WHICH IS BEFORE THIS LITTLE ARMY. All of it will be totally consumed.


And it matters not of the pollutions of the earth, the mess man has made of this fallen creation, and the elements of the earth that are in severe imbalance. For this Army will consume all the elements which will all pass away with a fervent heat.


Dear reader, if you are an Overcomer, then you will be brought to the Gate of Gad. At this Gate you will be placed in perfect order and rank in the Army of the Lord to march forward TO DESTROY EVERYTHING IN THIS NATURAL EARTH. You will be an instrument of the Judgment of God, a syllable of His voice, the tone of His wrath and in this Judgment you will consume and destroy every single element of this world, both the natural creation and the spiritual creation. Both the elements of the tangible earth as well as the non tangible elements of emotion and man’s carnal reasonings. Everything relating to man apart from God and this earth that abides under the curse of God will be destroyed BY YOU THE OVERCOMER.

Your work oh Saint of the Lord will be to DESTROY.

And this destruction, this marching forward in the billowing fire of God will end all of this curse, all of man’s ways and all of mans nations and kingdoms. There will be nothing of this world order that will survive this Army. We will break down peaceful barriers. We will break down attempts to protect this world. Every man made attempt at right living will also be destroyed. There is NOTHING GOOD OR EVIL WHICH WILL SURVIVE THE MARCHING OF THIS ARMY. These come forth as the Army of the Lord in 1st resurrection in Bodies which cannot die. And they will jealously march forward with the Jasper expression of God as their light and grace to show unto the world the open element of the love of God in the earth. But they will also march forward in the Sardine expression of God to show forth His fury and wrath and desire to destroy completely all this which is of His original creation which fell away. It is this Army of Overcomers who will display openly to all men the Jasper Stone and the Sardine Stone in the facial elements of God. This is not a ‘mystical reality’. This is real. There will be an actual real people come forth in this real natural world, but these people will be in Glorified Bodies and they will be as Jesus body was when He arose from the tomb. These bodies will be as His was IN THIS WORLD. And men, with natural eyes and natural senses WILL SEE THIS ARMY.


If you have read my previous writings on The New Jerusalem you have noted that the main purpose of God in this City was to envelop and swallow up the natural creation into the Spiritual creation. That the Spiritual would overtake and consume the natural. The Army of the Lord marching forward from the Gate of Gad IS THE FIRST ELEMENT OF THIS WORK OF GOD. It is the first expression of that which is “spiritual” swallowing up in full consuming power this which is “natural”. For when the march is completed, there will be no more curse, no more death, no more separation of creation from its creator. All that God loves and cherishes as His due by His creative and redemptive power will be returned to an Edenic state never to fall away into the curse again. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil will have borne the last of its fruit, no more separation or death will come from that tree. The tree of life will now shine forth from the midst of the paradise of God as the tree of life whose branches are for the healing of the nations.


The Lord is going to answer the world by one simple gesture of His grace, and that is the forward march of His Army. This Army will end what you see now and will usher in the completion needed for the Kingdom of Christ to eternally reign on the earth.


“And I looked, and behold the Gate of Simeon! And I saw as it were a small group, a little company of those that HEARD AND OBEYED THE WORD OF GOD. And my heart rejoiced over the life that was in this small little company of Saints.
