Shalom, shalom; peace, peace in the name of Yeshua. This is Crystal Sharpe and welcome to the Ancient Scrolls program.
I do have a website called Ancientscrollsonline.com. I do post prophetic dreams, visions, and words, transcripts, and these programs are always posted every week on my website: ancientscrollsonline.com.
Shema Deuteronomy 6
Shema, O Israel, the LORD God, the LORD is One.
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof; the world and those who dwell therein.
Numbers 10:35, Psalm 68:1
Arise, O Lord, and let Your enemies be scattered; and let those who hate You flee before you.
You are the King of the universe, King over heaven and earth. We praise You for You are worthy of praise.
The nation is going through a shaking right now and we are being squeezed. It is uncomfortable and stressful for many of us. We are in a storm. Not long ago I dreamed a very dark storm had encompassed the whole nation. I was able to look up through a portal over our home and saw the center of the storm. I saw debris being sucked up into it. That storm is upon us and has been for several weeks. But the storm did pass. Everything was shaken, but we survived it.
The nation is disturbed by recent events that has shaken it to its core. I pray peace will come to Your people. I ask that You send angels to minister to Your people. People are struggling and wrestling within themselves and the shock of what has taken place.
I ask that though the storm rages that the nation will look to You in the process. You have all the peace necessary to help us press through this time and even to Your return.
I pray for the remnant to remain strong, and I am praying for others that their hearts will be sensitive to Your Spirit. I pray for revival to fall upon us.
I believe You are God and there is none like You in the earth. You are preparing Your people for Your kingdom. You are removing all the things that hinder us from being intimate with You. You are preparing us for the return of Your Son and it is a battle.
I pray we will surrender to You and Your will and allow this to shape us so that we will bear fruit. We rejoice in this time that nothing can separate us from Your love. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
We bless You and thank You for Your Word, for the virgin birth of Yeshua, for His life, His crucifixion, His blood, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension and soon return. May we be found faithful upon His return in Yeshua’s name. Amen.
I really appreciate the Lord because it was in September of last year, the 7th, that He had shown me a massive storm coming. I mentioned it on the program and posted it on the website. We are now in that storm. Sometimes we do not know the precise interpretation of dreams, but I know He is faithful to tell us first the things or events, the plans of the enemy that are coming. Sometimes it takes years for some of these prophetic dreams to come to pass. Better yet, I know of certain situations that were prayed away in this nation.
We are in a situation where we cannot look to man to deliver us, and surely not the government since many are thieves, liars, Satanists, adulterers, idolaters, murderers, pederasts, and child molesters. Only a small percentage actually consider the American people as people. A few people had posted (this was on a social network) the government giving Smithsonian, this last stimulus package, 1 billion dollars, something like 230 million dollars to the Palestinians and the American people received a puny $600.00 per adult. This is what our leaders think about us.
So their donating our tax dollars to places like Smithsonian, it is like a money laundering scheme, our tax dollars go there to other bank accounts and back to the those members of Congress and Senate, Soros, Podesta, Clintons, the Bush family, the Rockefellers, and the Biden mafia. This system is more than a swamp, it is pure satanic in every way. Though these people are exposed from time to time, nothing is ever done about it.
Our only hope is in the Lord. Do not look for the government to come to any sort of rescue; and for now, it looks like Biden is going to go in office; with this happening for sure we are being punished; so he is not going to do anything but surrender us to China. China has purchased tremendous amounts of properties in our nation and preparing for the takeover of it. Do not look for any assistance from the military. The military is under the direction of the antichrists in government.
I am not trying to grind out hopelessness but I am trying to get across the message that our only hope is in the Lord and before all this is over, there will be pastors, leaders, teachers, people who will leave the Lord. They will not pass the test. The feel-good messages that many people were fed every Sunday and Wednesday will not help them get past this critical time. Many are not prepared for such a time as this, yet the remnant people are bracing themselves for what is yet to come.
I mean we still have a few days left and there may be some surprises, maybe some shock and awe; we will see how it all plays out. But it does not matter because I want my forehead to be set as flint to serve the Lord. To be able to lift up His name in this highly dysfunctional and disastrous place called earth.
Even those who have taught there would be some sort of rapture before any sort of bad event were to happen, they are changing their teachings. When I watch them, I sense they are struggling with the man-made traditions they were taught with what they are now experiencing—it does not gel. They are coming into agreement with the teachings of the apostles. People just want out of here, and I cannot say I blame them. But since we are not going any where for a while, we are going to have to learn to patiently endure the trials and persecutions that are set before us—just like the Christians do in the other nations.
We will have to learn to draw off of His strength, to look solely to Him for our provision, our deliverance and our protection.
And as they heard these things, He added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. They were expecting the Messianic Age to dawn; thinking the arrival of it was real and imminent.
- He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
- And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them: Occupy till I come. Do business till I come. In our words we would say to be about our Father’s business.
As I was reading this it came to me that the remnant is going to receive provisions from the Lord for the end days harvest. They are going to have more than enough. It is what we do with what we receive that will be measured, or judged in the world to come.
I am going to over some of the associations with the number ten. In Revelation 2:10, the church of Smyrna was told the devil was going to have some of them thrown in prison and they would be tested ten days. Ten can be symbolic of being tested.
I am thinking most people have heard or read the story about the ten virgins, or the story of the ten lepers that were healed. The northern kingdom of Israel consisted of ten tribes. It is a number of completion in the physical realm. Man was given ten fingers and ten toes. Ten speaks of community.
There was given ten commandments, a portion of the whole 613 commandments given to Israel.
A tithe is considered ten percent by some standards, a measure of the whole, a measure of all the wealth. Abraham’s servant took ten camels to find a bride for Isaac. It represented the whole wealth of Abraham.
In the book of Esther, Haman was hanged and also his ten sons, as well. It forms a pattern in Revelation 17, ten horns or kings sit on the seven headed beast. The book of Esther is prophetically speaking of the future fall of these ten kings in Revelation 17. Haman represents the beast and his ten sons the ten kings; and they were all killed.
Referring back to the ten virgins, the number ten represents the legal number necessary for a Jewish marriage. In Jewish tradition it is a requirement for ten Jewish men to be in attendance for communal worship and prayers; a minyan. The gathering of ten members creates a tzibbur, a public entity, where individual pursuits are sublimated to the greater good for the broader public.
In Jewish understanding, I found this information in a book called Jewish Wisdom in the Numbers. This is what it says: While numbers up to ten are deficient and lacking, the completed set of ten integrates all the individual parts into a greater whole. Here the individual components find their full realization within a wider public setting, as seen in formation of a minyan and the make-up of one unified community.
Jewish understanding is the world to come (the Messianic Age or Eternity, there some differences of opinion among the rabbis) or the Olam Haba, is associated with the number ten.
Here in Luke 19 are the numbers ten that are having some reference to the kingdom of God, and to the Olam Haba. As we go down and finish this, the ten servants are judged with what they had done with the King’s provisions.
As this story continues in Luke
And as they heard these things, He added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
- He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
- And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them: Occupy till I come.
But the citizens (it does not say the ten servants) hated him, and sent a message (delegation) after him, saying: We will not have this man to reign over us.
- And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants (the ten servants), to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know how much money every man had gained by trading.
- Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.
- And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou has been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
- And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
- And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
- And another came, saying: Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
- For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
- And he saith unto him, out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
- Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
- And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give to him that hath ten pounds.
- (and they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
- For I say unto you, that unto every one which hath shall be given; even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
- But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before Me.
So, here the kingdom comes along with judgment. These servants applied their provisions, or laid up the resources given them into the spiritual kingdom knowing the King was going to return and with His return judgment.
The servants placed all their resources and their allegiances at the disposal of the true king that was returning. They advanced the kingdom of God.
I am getting ready to close this program. Let us not be overwhelmed by what we are seeing going on in DC. God is already working those things out. The conflict in the spiritual has come down to the earth. It is our duty to continually pray about these circumstances.
It is difficult to not be caught up with the drama that is going on there, because it affects us all in one way or another. My opinion is that every thing there will not be over in a matter of days, weeks or months. Some people seem to think it will, but I do not think so.
Now is the time to look to the kingdom of God and no more to be focused on the temporal things of this world. We should focus on getting the gospel out to others. This is a great shaking that will cause a great awakening. Some will fail, just like the one servant who hid his talent or pound in a napkin, that servant failed.
It is my belief that a remnant of people are going to be mobilized in the next few months to minister to those who will be completely broken by what they will have experienced. Some will be angry and others bitter; but God is getting us into position for His return.
Paul faced a lot of challenges and he was confident to write:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
Anyway, I am at the end.
If it is God’s will I will be here next week. Remember to walk by faith and not by sight. Do two things: love and forgive. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness every day. Keep your spiritual garments clean from spots, wrinkles and blemishes. Love God and love your neighbor.
