Super Bowl 2013, part 8
Note by James: Some of you noticed my error in the dates of our upcoming Conference in Gap, Pennsylvania. Thank you for letting me know. The sentence in my Journal entry for March 6th (below) should have read: “The 2013 SKM Christ our Passover-Resurrection Bible Conference will be held commencing Friday, March 29th and running through Sunday, March 31st.”
Now on to the next installment of the Super Bowl report…
by our anonymous Really Good News reporter
Now let’s return to New Orleans and Katrina in particular. There were several events occurring simultaneously because of the flooding caused by the breached levees. Fire was burning on the water, causing it to appear at times as a lake of fire.
Coffins were floating and a number of them opened. Here is a brief link that includes a story of what happened at St. Joseph’s cemetery.
Undoubtedly, the most serious problem caused by Katrina was the pollution in the water from raw sewage. This had long term effects that required long term solutions. Here is an article link.
Once again, let’s pause for a moment and remind the reader that one of the main purposes of this Super Bowl report is to establish in our minds that what has taken place in New Orleans is an external example of what has been, is and will be, taking place internally in each of our temples. With that theme in mind, we ask that your memory banks retain the “lake of fire,” Joseph’s cemetery and raw sewage/dung images from the aftermath of the River of the Holy Spirit flooding the bowl shaped city of New Orleans.
As mentioned above, one of the constant themes in the aftermath of Katrina was trying to deal with the raw sewage overflow from the flooded conditions. Please realize that we are going to be dealing with a lot of “raw sewage” as well, once the River of the Holy Spirit really starts to flood our hearts. Every tradition/idol/dunghill of mankind that is in opposition with God’s nature and plan is going to eventually be washed right up and out of the “mouth of the river.”
Our Father knew all along that this condition would be in place and so He provided a dung gate right from the start in Old Jerusalem. Here is a link that provides a good description of the purpose of the dung gate. There are simply too many aspects about the dung gate to address in this report, so we suggest that you visit this site for a good synopsis and to pinpoint the exact location of the dung gate in the city.

Our Father has also graciously provided dung gates in each of our temples for the removal of dung and we could certainly make the case that each of our dung gates are indeed located in the southwestern corner of our “city.” Also, can we not say that this is a rest work since this removal takes place in a rest room? Did our Father provide the 7th day as a day of rest?
Maintaining a healthy body is multi-faceted and the removal of dung is a natural process. To maintain good health, dung should be removed on a daily basis, otherwise problems develop.
A good diet greatly enhances regular folks. Organic, life giving food is very important, as opposed to eating packaged or canned goods that have no life in them. This is most true, of course, when eating spiritual food. If what we are fed is loaded with man’s tur-dish-ons, then that can lead to serious problems. We need to always chew the cud of our food as well. That’s why we have four chambers in our hearts. Otherwise, these can become chamber pots over time, filled with man’s fertilizer if we are not careful about our diets.
While Israel was in their 40 year wilderness time, God gave them instructions on what to do if Mother Nature called. Deuteronomy 23:13, says, “And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:
To help us better understand what this KJV verse says, we’re going to use Deut. 23:12-14, from the modern NIV; Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself. As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement. For the LORD your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you.
The modern language gives us a much better view of what the Lord is speaking. We included the 14th verse from the NIV to show God’s purpose in giving these instructions. They were designed to keep the camp of Israel clean and holy to protect them and to deliver their enemies to them.
It is interesting to note that they had to go “outside the camp,” while they were in their dry desert, wilderness journey. It wasn’t until recent times that man has not had to go “outside the camp” to remove the dung from his body. The modern invention of the toilet has changed this to a place of rest “inside the camp”, in the privy (privacy) of one’s own home.
We want to also comment on the usage in the King James Version of the word, “ease” in Deuteronomy 23:13. “Ease” is Strong’s #3427 and it means to dwell, remain, sit down, abide. It certainly matches the usage of the word in this case. We wonder if our Father knew that New Orleans would someday be called “The Big Easy”. Here is an expository link on this verse.
Now let’s turn our attention to Jericho, which means “moon.” New Orleans also fits this type since it is called the Crescent City (the moon goes through its crescent cycles each month) because of the way in which the River of the Holy Spirit flows through the city. Here is a link explaining how New Orleans was given this moniker.
In Genesis the moon is said to be the lesser of the two lights created in Genesis 1:16 and it rules the night. It has no light of its own, but merely reflects the light of the Son/Sun. The church is made up of “called out ones” to represent the picture of Christ to the world. We have no light of our own, (we are the moon) but we have the light of the Son/sun within us.
We also believe that the Jericho/moon theme is connected to the events on 9/11/01 because of Isaiah 30:25-26 which states “And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers [and] streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.”
Is it a coincidence that next year’s Super Bowl will be held in the New York City metro area? The “Big Apple” game will actually take place across the Hudson River in the Garden state of New Jersey. Perhaps we will begin to see some bright Son light being shined into dark places by that time.
The walls of Jericho today are, in our opinion, really the denominational walls that separate followers of Christ from one another because of doctrinal differences. At a deeper level, are the walls of Jericho really just an outward manifestation of the walls in each of our hearts? Have we constructed our own levees to keep the River of the Holy Spirit from entering in and bringing down these walls? Is the Father of Waters taking matters into His own Hands by sending a “Perfect Storm” of His Holy Spirit for purposes of total cleansing/purification/sanctification? We believe so.
Could the symbolism of the Crescent City have a deeper meaning in this work when we consider its long standing usage in American culture as a “House of Ease”? Here is a historical quote on the importance of the Crescent moon symbol.
“Probably the most recognizable symbol associated with the traditional outhouse building is the familiar crescent moon carved into the privy door. Actually, the symbol is an ancient one, and was a sign for womanhood in colonial days and on the frontier. It’s male counterpart, Sol, was either a star or a sun burst design also on the door.
“Since most male outhouses fell into disrepair rather quickly they seldom survived; while the female ones were better maintained, and were eventually used by both sexes. Although you can find outhouses still standing with the crescent moon, the original meaning for gender identification was lost by the later nineteenth century in most areas of the country.
“Carved crescent moons and stars on outhouse doors was introduced in early 19th century America. Typically, the moon and the star together represented a unisex outhouse, while the moon alone represented a women’s outhouse. A star alone represented a men’s outhouse.”
This bit of history is quite self-explanatory and an amazing match for what is coming forth right now. Who knew a hundred years ago that these houses would hold the important prophetic significance for our current hour? Again we ask the question; do all things come from our Father’s Hand?
Does Isaiah not tell us that the Crescent Moon (female) and the Sun/Sol (male) will become one? And in this becoming one, is it necessary to remove the “turditions” of man, so that the fullness of the love of Christ in each of our hearts can be manifested? Are we being shown the timing for events just ahead? Let’s continue.
Jesus Christ’s face shone as the sun at the Mount of Transfiguration. He then came to lay in each of our moonlit hearts. If Super Bowl #47 is prophesying of the light of the moon now becoming as the light of the sun, then there has to be visible “sunshine confirmations” in the game between the 49ers and Ravens.
Starting with the 49ers, we wonder if perhaps one of our Father’s favorite songs might be, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” Here are a few of the lyrics. And when He “comes home” to you, San Francisco, “Your golden sun/Son will shine for me.” Perhaps there will be a 49er “homecoming” in 2016 if San Francisco is awarded the site for the NFL’s 50th (Jubilee) Super Bowl. The 49ers are scheduled to begin play in a brand new stadium in 2014. (To be continued.)
