2014 – Judgment in the house of God, Johann Melchizedek Peter
What a year 2013 had been. It felt like 5 years with the many things that had taken place. As we looked to the year 2014, the Lord said that the year 2014 is judgment in the house of God and the year 2015 is judgment on the world.
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God – 1 Peter 4:17
As I waited on the Lord for this year’s message, the Lord spoke about both this year and the next year. The two years of 2014 and 2015 are closely connected and flows into one another as judgment that begins in the house of God rolls over to the judgment upon all that is in the world. What is this judgment for and how do we respond?
Firstly, this judgment at the house of God is to shake all Christians, ministries and churches in two areas: those who have been yielding to demonic spirits and those who have allowed the world to compromise them. As the holiness of God increases and in preparation for the glory of God to be present in His physical church, God is firstly removing all those who have allowed demons to work in their lives. Demons have no place in the church of God and God is cleansing His church from those who have opened doors to allow demons to follow and live with them. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons (1 Corinthians 10:21). Those Christians, ministries and churches that have allowed demons to function in their lives will be utterly shaken and if they do not repent, God will take their lampstand away and remove them (Revelation 2:5). By remove, it could mean two things, either they will no longer be effective or they might possibly die physically, lest they sin further by becoming so demonized that they lose their salvation.
The second area that God will be shaking is Christians, ministries and churches who are worldly. We are in the world by not of the world (John 15:19; John 17:14-16). From now to the year 2020, we must perfect peace, love and glory into our lives. The love of God cannot be perfected in those who have the love for the world. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him (1 John 2:15). For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever (1 John 2:16-17). Those who are worldly have the doctrine of Balaam, who is a lover of money, and leads to idolatry and immorality. The instruction of Jesus is to repent, or else He, Himself, will fight against them with the sword of His mouth (Revelation 2:16). God is shaking off the demons clinging to His bride and the mud of the world that pollutes His bride.
There is also the law of parallels that take place between Israel and the church: what happens to one happens to the other. Both are olive branches join to the same root (Romans 11:16-18). As God’s judgment is effected on the church, there will be parallels of it manifesting in the nation of Israel. Historically, the events of Israel have also paralleled the events in the church: in 1948 Israel coming together as a nation parallels the healing revivals in of the fivefold ministries in the 1950s; the 1950-1960s rise of the healing evangelists is paralleled by the conquest of the Sinai Peninsula by Israel in 1956; the gain of large sections of territory including Jerusalem in 1967 parallels the charismatic revival where Christianity finds its Acts chapter 2; the 1973 war parallels the rise of the mega churches establishment of the charismatic churches worldwide; and the difficult years of 1982-2006 mirrors the difficult times and scandals of the church worldwide. In 2014-2015, there will be signs that show forth the dealings of God on both branches of the olive tree as God prunes both Israel and His church for the coming restoration revival that heralds His second coming.
In the move of God in Cathedral of Glory, on the overnight prayer of 13-14 December 2013, the revelation was released as to the identifying of one of the angels working together with us in this revival as the archangel of Revelations 10. We have come to know that he is the seven thunders archangel, the original archangel in charge of the entire planet earth and now fulfilling His role as the archangel of Australia. In encounters with him on that night and early morning, I was instructed to take on the name ‘John’ (I was given the freedom to use any other language derivation of that same name – Hebrew ‘Yohanan’ and Greek ‘Iohan’ or ‘Iohannes’ – so I settled for the derivation ‘Johann’). On Sunday 15 December 2013, while still absorbing the revelation, Melchizedek the cherub, impressed upon me to also take on the name ‘Melchizedek’ in order to lead and train the second generation for the rapture that will take place as a finale to this revival. I kept the revelations secret until I had returned to Australia and registered the name change. We made two trips to Canberra to effect the name changed. In the first trip we were transported physically but different from the first transportation on 27 November 2012.
On 27 November 2012, we were transported around 110 kilometres from point A before Goulburn to point B just before the turning to Barton Highway through one frame to another in a nano second. On 24 December 2014, when we were travelling to Canberra, it was like entering many, many frames and being brought through multiple frames and being kept in it for a long extended period of time. This time my GPS was on, unlike the first time when it was off. If I had been transported from one frame to another, the GPS would have reacted by suddenly saying ‘recalculating.’ This time the GPS reacted erratically like the speed was changing from 110 km per hour (the legal limit along the freeway) to 100 km, the legal limit just before Canberra. I could also see frames of the highway into Canberra and it seemed that there were many sights and places along the highway that we did not see. It was like the transportation through the frames slowed downed purposefully and we were absorbing a lot of the spiritual energy released between each frame and time slowed down for us. The normal time to reach from point to point was three hours but we reached in two hours. One hour was missing. During our second trip on 2 January 2014, we were not transported and took exactly 3 hours to reach point to point. On both trips I had topped up my diesel tank to complete full tank, and on the first trip when we were transported, the diesel consumption showed about two-thirds of one quarter tank while the second trip on Jan 2 showed a fuel consumption of one quarter tank plus another slightly more than half of a quarter tank. The fuel consumption meter showed that we had saved roughly about a third of normal consumption. It was quite an awesome experience to see the frames passing and time being held back. The presence of God was very, very strong and my physical body is still reacting to the after effects of the energy released.
To the spiritual world, this name changed was very important and God had demonstrated His power once again to confirm His perfect Will in doing all this. The acceptance of the new name God gave me, Johann Melchizedek Peter, was like a circumcision of the old me, taking away all of the original name I was born with and putting on of the new spiritual name from the Spiritual dimension of my eternal destiny. Peter was the spiritual name I had taken when I was converted to Christianity and it has become my surname, as I am called to be an apostle like Peter to lead His church, being blessed with the keys of the kingdom as Peter was in Matthew chapter 16 (Matthew 16:18-19). Johann is the new name given because the same Holy Spirit anointing that was upon John the apostle will now come upon me; and the name Melchizedek was given so that the same anointing that Melchizedek the cherub operated upon would also come upon me to lead the bride of Jesus into glory. It takes three anointings plus the anointing that Paul the apostle had to bring the bride of Jesus into His full glory. I am still trembling from His impartations and anointings.
Several reasons, not all intellectually comprehensible, were given to me for the adoption of the name of John (for the adoption of the name of Melchizedek – we already have a teaching series on the Melchizedek generation that explains the relevance of Melchizedek the cherub’s working). The first is that the archangel of Australia, who is the archangel of Revelation chapter 10, will now work with me as He had worked with John in the giving of the seven thunders revelation. The second was that the anointing of John the apostle in all its full intimacy and revelation of the Lord Jesus would come upon me and the third, was that the words of Jesus ‘that if he remain till I come, what is that to you’ (spoken to Peter in John 21:22-23) would come to pass in some form. We all know that John himself clarified that it was not a word of prophecy that John would not die, as John did and clarified in John 21:23 that such was not the interpretation. Nevertheless, it seemed that the words of Jesus many times carries shades of meaning and power that moves into the spiritual world to be fulfilled, and the faith of many Christians in John’s time and thereafter, was that he would live to see the second coming of Jesus or appear again, somehow needed also to be fulfilled. This was the third reason, and it sealed the acceptance of the calling that I had, that I would be translated and not die but see the coming of the Lord, besides leading His bride into the glorious church. The fourth reason was the reception of the endtime revelation that John had that would come upon me for the endtimes and the fifth was that somehow in the Spiritual World, just a ‘John,’ a name supernaturally given by archangel Gabriel to Zacharias for his son, John the Baptist, who herald the first coming of Jesus, another ‘John’ was to herald the second coming of Jesus exactly as John the Baptist had herald Jesus first coming (Luke 1:13-17). I am trembling under these anointings and impartations and still absorbing the impact of these changes into my being.
The Lord also said to me that in the culmination of absorbing the anointing of the Spirit of peace (angel of Ephesus), the Spirit of love (angel of Smyrna) and the Spirit of glory (angel of Pergamos) that the message to the overcomers are to be fully absorbed into the church within these remaining years to 2020 when the church reached its glorious state and enter into the decade of power (2020 to 2030). And being anointed and called to lead this move, I was to partake of all the promise to the overcomers literally: the Tree of Life fully (absorbed the eternal immortal life of Jesus, our Tree of Life), be untouched by the power of victory over the second death (spiritual death) to such a degree that physical death is conquered – become translated physically without seeing death, and as I would receive the hidden manna and the white stone with a new name that no one knows, symbolically while on earth, I had to change my name completely too (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17). He said that I had to become the living sermon to the world of the fullness of the Spirit of peace, the Spirit of love and the Spirit of glory in order to lead His bride into the fullness of glory; and progressively through these next six plus forty years, absorbed the rest of the promises to the overcomers to the other church angels (Revelation 2:26-28, 3:5, 12, 21). All these are spiritually transacted as I humbly, and trembling under the fear of God, received the new name God had given. It is going to take me this whole year to fully comprehend all that has occurred in the Spirit.
What and how are Christians to react to the message of judgment in the house of God for the year 2014? We should seek to turn all our lives around and apply our full heart, mind and soul to these areas:
1. Become sealed into the destiny for our lives.
On the negative side, the Lord says that those who continue to choose to allow demons to operate in their lives, that He would take His presence from their lives and allow destruction of the flesh to occur; and many would physically die (both these year and before reaching the year 2020) and mercifully, their spirits would be saved (1 Corinthians 5:3-5). There will be some who persist stubbornly and even go against the Lord, the Spirit of the Lord and the anointed of the Lord and they will be totally demonized, some lose their salvation and totally become demon possessed (Hebrews 6:6-8; 10:26; 1 John 5:16). For such, this is their last and final warning. Let us not be judgmental and think that all who die during these next six years are disobedient but some could die and go home to the Lord because they finish their work and calling.
On the positive side, those who live their lives right and make the right choices will have their destinies sealed and sanctified this year and be given anointings, giftings, impartations, and callings that will empower them into the glorious church (1 Thessalonians 5:23; John 14:27; 15:5-6; 16:13-14). In the year 2014, the Lord marks those who are for Him and those who are not for Him.
2. Enter into a time of waiting on the Lord.
On the negative side, those who serve God in their own strength and their own flesh will be brought to nought; first they will be taken away and then they will be case forth as a branch to be burned (John 15:2, 6). They are like salt that has lost its flavour and be thrown out and trampled afoot by men (Matthew 5:13). They are like the man who built his house on the sand without a foundation and in the rain and floods of judgment will cause their house to fall (Matthew 7:25-27). And in the judgment day, all their works are destroyed, they suffer loss, only saving themselves (1 Corinthians 3:15).
On the positive side, those who wait on the Lord and allow the Lord to build into their lives, the Lord will show them things which eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor entered into the hearts of men, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him and wait upon Him (1 Corinthians 2:9-10; Isaiah 64:4). The revelations that God would pour into their hearts this year will establish them into the glorious church (1 Corinthians 2:7). Let us wait in fasting and prayers with a heart that trembles at God’s word (Isaiah 66:1-2).
3. Be faithful in small things as well as in big things.
This is a year when everything is accelerated and magnified. On the negative side, a small wrong decision can cause you ten years of your life or even total loss of life but a right simple choice can seal your destiny permanently and empower you into the glorious church. In 2 Kings 13, the simple act of hitting the arrows three times by a king in private audience with a prophet, sealed the fate of a nation (2 Kings 13:15-19). Instead of the nation of Israel destroying Syria, Syria destroyed them. Thousands of lives were affected because of one simple act. He that is faithful in little will be faithful in much and he that is unjust in little will be unjust in much (Luke 16:10). Those who are faithful in a few things will be given much spiritual authority over many things and they will enter into the joy and glory of the Lord (Matthew 25:21, 13).
4. Be established rather than be removed from the lampstand.
The call of the Lord is to ‘Repent!’ Repent if you have lost your first love. Repent for God is coming to take away your lampstand (Revelations 2:5). To those who are walking like Balaam and Balak, repent or else God Himself will fight against you with the sword of His mouth (Revelations 2:16). Two things can occur in the removal from the lampstand, the individual will die physically or the individual will become null and void, a vessel castaway or rejected (1 Corinthians 9:27). Those who cleansed themselves this year and sanctified themselves unto the Lord will become established as a vessel of honour, sanctified and useful for our Master and Lord Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:21). Where before they were hidden, they shall henceforth be given a lampstand that their light may shine forth in the era of the glorious church (Luke 8:16). The Lord shall make known His glory to such vessels of mercy, whom He has prepared beforehand for glory (Romans 9:23).
5. Know that we are in the final phase and chapter to the Lord’s return.
With the adoption of the name, Johann Melchizedek Peter, the Lord told me that once I proclaimed this name change, it heralds that we are to get ready as a bride for the second coming of the Lord. Just as John the Baptist herald the first coming of the Lord, Johann Melchizedek Peter is to herald the second coming of the Lord, and prepare the way for the return of the Lord. Name changes of leaders in the Bible are significant. Abram changed his name to Abraham and entered into a new phase of relationship with God, Jacob was given the new name, Israel, and entered in nation building phase (Genesis 17:5; 32:27, 28). Although John the Baptist carried Elijah’s anointing, he was not given Elijah’s name but rather was given the name, John (Luke 1:13). John the Baptist was a voice in wilderness crying ‘Prepare the way of the Lord and make His paths straight’ (Mark 1:3). The Lord told me that Johann Melchizedek Peter was now to:
Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a HIGHWAY for the Lord (Isaiah 40:3). He showed me a vision of the Highway which He has built from His coming to the present and that we are in the FINAL PHASE of this highway. It is about to be complete and WILL BE COMPLETED in this revival that He has anointed us for. This is the FINAL CALL to get ready for the coming of the Lord, and to become His glorious church without spot, wrinkle or blemish (Ephesians 5:27).
As we prepare ourselves in fasting and prayer to be part of the glorious church in 2014 and 2015, I would like to share two visions of endtimes that significant to the times that we live in:
A vision of the prosperity of the wicked
Souls of wicked men on earth, who look ugly, deformed and grotesque, were prospering exceedingly greatly and spreading out with tentacle-like shapes all around the world. They were fattening themselves with the best on earth and growing large, producing numerous fruit abundantly but the fruit was also as ugly and grotesque as themselves. Yet they desire after these fruit and valued them highly. In their prosperity, they seem to fare better than people of God, although their light shines forth brightly. The prosperity of the wicked seemed to completely overwhelm the righteous and completely covered them so that the righteous cannot be seen any more. Although they were completely overwhelmed, they were not destroyed but rather, hidden from view. Then a voice from heaven proclaimed, ‘The time has come! The judgment of the Lord has come!’ Immediately, a great demolition took place and all the wicked were destroyed. Then the righteous began to show their prosperity that was hidden from view. They had been prospering all along (even during the time that they were seemingly overwhelmed), and now it was revealed as great prosperity. This prosperity was much, much greater than the prosperity of the wicked and the fruit of this prosperity was extremely beautiful to behold.
A vision of false and genuine signs and wonders
The people of God, sons of God, were on the earth and to many of them were given an anointing to work and perform the signs and wonders of God. They worked miracles and demonstrated great signs and wonders on the earth turning many to the Lord. As soon as the sons of God began to work miracles, signs and wonders bringing great joy and worship in the churches of God, the sons of darkness began to also work miracles, signs and wonders through the power of demons and fallen angels. The signs that they wrought were greater and more spectacular than the sons of God. The sons of darkness began to deride, mocked and scorn the sons of God for their lesser signs and wonders. Not only were their lying signs and wonders more spectacular but they were also more numerous. These signs and wonders deceived many, who are first looked at the true signs and wonders done by the sons of God but now they turned away to these lying signs and wonders. When the Lord would do a work and a sign, the enemy would do many more works and signs.
Throughout this time, the Lord Jesus was present and watching. He said, “I have allowed the enemy to demonstrate his power, yet he will not be able to deceive My own whom I will give sufficient light so that they shall be able to discern and know which are the true works of My Spirit. The people will have to choose which wonders are right and which are of Me. Those who truly desire to follow Me shall correctly define things as they are and shall NOT be deceived or led astray. But those who are not truly following after Me and do not desire Me shall choose the way of the greater and more numerous wonders and false signs. Deceiving themselves, these shall follow after the lying workers of miracles because they seek not to follow Me and deceived in themselves.”
In the vision, many who at first seem to follow the Lord, in great numbers began to follow after the greater signs and wonders, being greatly deceived. Yet, His own were not deceived. Those who followed the false signs and wonders did not return to the Lord, nor look to those who did the lesser signs and true works of the Lord. The Lord was present with the sons of God and was working signs in the midst of the sons of God. These signs and wonders carried a presence that was also of a transforming nature and changed those who remained with the Lord into a glory that far exceeds the light of the sun manifold. It became apparent to all that those who had left and followed the lying signs and wonders were never a part of the Lord or truly belonging to Him. In the end, no one that did not belong to Him was present amongst the sons of God but only those who were truly His and remained with Him.
The coming years from 2015 onwards are precarious years. It is not too farfetched or inconceivable that only those who truly love God with first love will last and endure and enter into the phase of the glorious church in 2020. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit of God is saying in these last days.
Love in Christ,
Ps Johann Melchizedek Peter
