“I saw Fire coming from heaven, like Lightning. I saw prophetic words “riding” on these bolts of Lightning. We’re hitting the earth like an atom bomb. Every place that these prophetic words were released, the Fire of God, His Dunamis Power exploded and spread out. It was God’s Glory.”
Deborah W Fry
In Apostle Michael Petro’s teaching on “The Opposing Powers” He explained that lightning is the revelation that you see, and thunder is the revelation being heard.
“The Lord thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered His voice. He explained that lightning in scripture symbolically speaks of secrets and mysteries, these mysteries are defined as religious secrets that are only confided in the initiated and not to ordinary mortals. 2 Samuel 22:14 (1)
Many ancient civilisations practiced an initiation process, including indigenous cultures that performed initiation ceremonies as a rite of passage to transition boys into “manhood”. Special knowledge and skills could only be passed on through these initiation ceremonies. Initiated members would sometimes have a tooth removed, their ears or nose pierced or flesh cut with a particular sacred markings. In the bible, the process of a Jewish child going from a childhood to manhood was marked by “circumcision”. Though it was performed outwardly, the fullness of manhood was the circumcision (initiation) of the heart Jeremiah 4:4 (2)
Jesus also established an initiation process with His disciples in order to discern the serious and enquire who was worthy to know these secrets and mysteries. This initiation process was given through the parabolic teachings of Jesus. Those who were inquisitive received the understanding of the parables and became initiated and those who didn’t walked away uninitiated.
“And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand” Luke 8:11
From Genesis to Revelation the message of
“eyes to see and ears to hear”
was given to unlock the kingdom within us. Very much like when a seed opens to the full potential of what it shall become (future tense).
The Book of Revelations contains many future prophecies of a time where the church of God (represented by the Menorah) will come into maturity. It speaks of the seven lamps of fire burning with the seven Spirits of God.
“And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God”. Revelations 4:5
The number seven represents perfection and maturity. The Menorah being filled with oil indicates the church of God coming into perfection in the revelation of Jesus Christ.
“I saw prophetic words “riding” on these bolts of Lightning. They were hitting the earth like an atom bomb.”
Deborah W Fry
Apostle Michael said that these atom bombs are the process of the Lord destroying our fleshly understanding (the earth).
Adam was made out of the dust of the earth, he symbolises humanity and the fallen nature that came in through man’s disobedience to God’s word. The Lord is sending these “atom bombs” to destroy this fallen nature of man by His spirit, or by divine revelation. This destruction is not physical like Hiroshima was to the earth, this devastation is a spiritual process of transforming the soul, the removal and realignment of habits and thoughts of the mind, will and emotions, speech, deed, action and impulses of the fallen nature.
“And Elijah answered and said to him, If [ man of God I am], shall come down fire] from heaven, and shall devour you and your fifty. And there came down fire from heaven and devoured him and his fifty” 2 Kings 1:12 (4)
Elijah was a prophet of God who was challenging the false prophets of his time who were teaching false doctrine. What was this fire from heaven that Elijah was calling down? This is the fire of God, (secrets and mysteries) that consume the will of man and replace the teachings of man with His divine will and character. Elijah’s battle with the false prophets is a symbolic picture or parable of the war between those who teach by spirit of man versus the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
No longer shall My prophets call down Fire from heaven to destroy, but your words shall be fueled by the Fire of My Love and My Life Giving Holy Spirit.”
Deborah W Fry
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7 (5)
The word “living” means to be restored to life. The carnal man of dust (Adam) came to life by receiving a natural breath, but the spiritual man needs a pneumatikōs breath of God’s Holy Spirit to have dudimus power and authority over the carnal nature.
This prophecy is a timely word revealing the unfolding of end time events where the Spirit of Elijah was prophesied to come and restore all things back unto perfection as it was in Genesis before the fall. (Mal 4:5, Matt 17:11) (6)
“Beloved. The dross has been burned away. You have been refined by the Fire of My Love. The pure prophetic flow has been perfected in the Consuming Fire of your God.
“Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies”. Psa 119:119 (7)
This wickedness is speaking of the natural, wrong understanding of scripture that is not in the likeness of God. Why is this wrong understanding of scripture wicked or hostile to God? because it leads one away from the process of perfection if we remain in our desires, which is the false image.
“And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ” Matthew 15:9
“And there appeared to them cloven (diamerizō – divide part) tongues as of FIRE, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:3-4
Those in the upper room are symbolic of those who are receiving the ability to gather and divide the seed word of scripture from natural (earthly) to (heavenly) understanding as in Genesis.
“God saw that the light was beautiful. He separated the light from the darkness.” Gen 1:4
“Our prophetic words spoken in faith are not coming from earth or from ourselves. They are coming from Heaven. They are God’s mandates from the throne of Grace, His Fire and Glory being manifested upon the earth.”
Apostle Michael said that this prophecy is speaking of the release of the Spirit of Elijah in the earth. Elijah is the only prophet in the Bible who called down fire from heaven. These are high priestly teachings being released from heaven to the earth to fulfill the prophecy of Elijah.
A person who isn’t spiritual doesn’t accept the things of God’s Spirit, for they are nonsense (foolishness, dull, stupid) to him. He can not understand them because they are spiritually evaluated and taught by the aid of the Holy Spirit who reveals divine figures, hidden within the parables. (1Co 2:14)
When we look further into the word dull, it implies something not sharp of hearing, like a knife which cannot cut through or pierce through the flesh. In the book of Malachi it tells us that Elijah will come and turn, (shoob – circumcise), the heart of the children from being hard of hearing. Can a heart hear? Seems impossible but it is so with God’s word. The heart and mind are one and the same, the faculty of the mind share union with eyes and ears, all spiritual discerning organs.
“And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:6
Only a prophetic father has the skillfulness to impart revelation to pierce through the veil of the fleshly understanding and restore the soul back to the perfect union that God had in the garden with Adam before the fall. (13a)
