The Cleansing of the Western-Oriented Church of Christ

01.06.2020, Daniel Glimm

Some time ago I received a dream that took place in vivid colors of which I feel that it is important at this time.
The Artwork “Elliot” and the messianic Calendar
The day before I had the dream an artist, a believer in Christ and personal friend of my wife and I, sent me a photo of her latest painting via smartphone.
Looking at the picture I saw a seraphim – angel (note: means “the burning ones, the purifying ones“, also “fiery dragon“), and almost immediately I heard the name “Elliot” in my spirit. The name “Elliot” is derived from the name of the prophet Elijah and means “God is JAHWE.“
I went into the kitchen to show the painting to my wife and then I looked on the messianic calendar hanging on the wall. On it was a picture with a church building in the foreground which had a number of golden bulbous spires. There was a cross at the top of each spire, and the city of Jerusalem could be seen in the background.
Underneath the picture the scripture from Mark 16:9 was cited, where it says,
When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.“
Two Dreams
That night, after my wife and I had gone to bed, she had a dream where the above mentioned scripture from Mark 16:9 was highlighted twice.
That very same night I had a dream, too (as previously mentioned). In the dream it was summertime and the sun was going down. The sunset made the sky glow in soft shades of orange. While seeing this, I beheld a big storm forming on the horizon, coming from the north. It consisted of a dark cloud cover which extended horizontally, and it felt like a wave rolling towards the shore with a seraphim – angel forming from the center of the dark cloud cover.
Then I repeatedly heard the name “Elliot”.
After this the dream sequence changed and I saw a male person walking with his friend, who was a believer in Christ, on the flat green-planted roof of a very long, drawn-out building.
While these two were in conversation, I saw to the right of them (note: towards the east) a married couple from the western world lying on sun loungers on the roof terrace of a nearby building; they spoke spiritedly in English about their ministry in the church of Christ.
On the basis of what they said I realized that the man had an unhealthy self confidence which was influenced by pride.
Then I looked to the left of the horizon (note: towards the west) where the sun was about to set, covering the sky in warm shades of orange.
While looking to the left hand side, I noticed three big storms forming on the horizon, which one by one moved powerfully from west to east. When I saw the first big storm I realized that the two chatting believers walking on the roof tried to evade the storm, but they didn't manage on account of the speed of the storm. In the midst of this dark cloud cover I saw the head and neck of a horse. It had a white-blue outline, and an electric current (note: like lightnings) was emanating from it. There was a strong sound of snorting coming from the nostrils of the horses' head.
After this two further big storms followed, they looked just like the first big storm I had previously seen coming from the north with the seraphim – angel forming in the middle of the dark cloud cover and bearing the name of “Elliot”.
After the storms I had observed earlier had passed over the region, there was an atmosphere of peace and quiet, just like after a summer thunderstorm where the falling rain rises again as white fog from the earth.
While seeing all of this I recognized the man, the believer, who was previously chatting with his friend on the roof, now speaking with a neighbor of his (note: she didn't seem to be a believer), asking if she had noticed the big storms, but she hadn't.
There the dream ended.
The Four Big Storms and the Spirit of Elijah
As I contemplated this and my wife's dream, asking the LORD for revelation knowledge, he informed me that the big storms are spiritual movements in the spirit of Elijah; they are connected to fatherhood and sonship (see Malachi 4:5-6).
Malachi 4:5-6:
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
The four big storms were:
  1. the movement of the Heavenly Father (note: spiritual fatherhood),
  2. the movement of Israel, his people (note: the one new man/the messianic church of Christ; see Ephesians 2:13-18),
  3. the movement of the Son of God – Jesus Christ (note: spiritual sonship) and
  4. the movement of the Holy Spirit (note: spiritual care, like that of a mother).
In connection with this the Heavenly Father revealed to me that He is about to free the Western-influenced church from the influences of darkness (for instance religion, pride, …) similar to the way He cleansed the temple in Jerusalem from the sellers and money changers through His son Jesus Christ, who at that time lived on earth in human form (see John 2,13-19).
John 2:13-19:
13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”
17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”
18 The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”
19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”
I further heard the LORD saying,
A time has come to an end to announce a new time!
I have cleansed My house in the midst of Israel, My people, through My son Jesus Christ, who came to them as King and High Priest.
In the same way I cleanse My church in this time through the presence of My risen Son, who is King of kings and Priest of the Most High God according to the order of Melchizedek (see Genesis 14:18 i.c.w. Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 5:5-6).
This cleansing is a cleansing of the spiritual level.
This time Jesus acts from His structure of spirit-man, and through unusual miracles He urges us to cleanse our hearts (see Revelation 1:12-16 i.c.w. James 4:8; 1.Peter 4:17).“
This manifestation of Jesus as the First and the Last and the Living One will lead to Him cleansing the Western-influenced church as Priest of the Most High in order to re-establish righteousness in His house.
Where there is darkness because of ignorance of His current and future work, Jesus Christ will answer with His revealing light. This will result in a change of economy within His house.
The power of the grace of God will lead to believers suddenly knowing the truth, where previously they defined themselves by their gifts and offices; they will get the opportunity to help Jesus Christ in His cleansing process. This can be seen clearly in Jesus' request to the dove sellers (see John 2:16).
As a result the relationship with the Heavenly Father will be in the foreground, and finances will no longer be used for personal visions and plans, but for the visions and plans of the Father. This implementation arises from the true relationship with God, the Father, and has His plan in the center.
At this point it is important to note that – while cleansing the temple in Jerusalem from insincere buyers and sellers with the zeal of God – Jesus pointed to the true trade/the true “exchange deal” in heaven. This can only take place with a sincere heart by relationship with the Heavenly Father. The tables (note: symbol for fellowship) overthrown by Jesus Christ indicate this, because the table legs like index fingers point heavenward and point to the true heavenly trade in relationship with the Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.
This “exchange deal” includes making use of time by spending it with the Heavenly Father in true relationship, and also using finances according to the will and plan of the Father.
The Unusual Manifestation of Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ appears in an unusual way, and He will connect to the respective region of the land He enters in order to reveal Himself in the facet of the inheritance spiritually allocated by God to the region.
Melchizedek was the king of righteousness and was identified as prince of peace through the city of „Salem“.
The movement or entrance of Jesus Christ as King of righteousness and Priest of God Most High into the Western-influenced church will be accompanied by a fresh anointing which is carried by leading angels/winds, and it will result in unusual miracles that are challenging (see Matthew 21:1-2.4-5).
Matthew 21:1-2.4-5:
1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me …
4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet (see Zechariah 9:9): 5 “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ”
The result of this cleansing will be that the church of Christ worldwide will arise as the one new man – the messianic church – and it will walk in His triumph and His resurrection power for this age.
Amen and Amen.
