Issue No. 274 - Cover Letter

Dear Friends,

As you see from our latest FFI, there was significant revelation that came out at the Passover conference in Manassas, VA. This was the third and final conference to be held in Manassas, and the “daughters of Zelophehad” emerged to receive their inheritance, as we see in Numbers 17, Numbers 36, and Joshua 17.

One of the main purposes of this year’s conference was to present new speakers in order to obtain a balance between men and women.

Numbers 17 is the 144th chapter of the Bible. Numbers 36 is the 153rd chapter. And Joshua 17 is the 204th chapter.

There are 203 layers of stone in the Great Pyramid reflecting the divine plan for the earth. The King’s Chamber rests on 50 layers of stone, and there are then 153 layers of stone above it. The 204th is the capstone which was never placed on the Pyramid, because it became a symbol of “the stone that the builders rejected” which has become “the head of the corner” (Psalm 118:22). The headstone of the corner is always placed on the top of a Pyramid.

Incidentally, the Great Pyramid was called Pa-Hanoch, or “House of Enoch” in ancient times. Its passages are prophetic, as each Pyramid inch represents one year of Biblical chronology. Though non-Christian groups like to claim the Great Pyramid and use it for their own occult purposes, they are merely usurpers of God’s property.

The Great Pyramid is located on the border between Upper and Lower Egypt in the center of the land where the Nile Delta begins. Isaiah 19:19, 20 speaks of it this way:

(19) In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the Lord near its border. (20) And it will become a sign and a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the Lord because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Champion, and He will deliver them.

If you add up the numeric value of each Hebrew letter in these two verses, the total is 5449. This happens to be the height of the Great Pyramid in inches. (The Pyramid Inch is the basic internal measurement established in the Pyramid itself. It is nearly the same as our modern inch.)

So when the daughters of Zelophehad petitioned Moses in the 144th chapter, and again in the 153rd chapter, and then receive it in the 204th chapter, it is all prophetic of the progression from the Elect to the Sons of God and then the completion of the divine plan.

As I have long taught, one cannot speak of the birthing of the sons of God without including the role of the woman. It takes both male and female to bring forth the sons of God. Likewise, women must be restored to their inheritance and recognized for their role in the divine plan.

Much confusion has occurred over the years from Paul’s writing in 1 Cor. 14:34-36. where Paul is thought to insist that women keep silent in the church. What people do not realize is that this passage was not Paul’s teaching. He was answering a letter from the Corinthian Church and decided to quote from it before refuting it. This would have been clear to the Corinthians, but later generations have misunderstood it to mean that Paul himself was teaching these things.

The Corinthians had written to Paul about church protocol, probably after a Jewish believer had come in and was insisting that the church follow the Jewish practice of disallowing women to speak (prophesy) in the church. Paul quotes the letter:

(34) Let the women keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but let them subject themselves, just as the Law also says. [What law? That was only the Jewish tradition—their interpretation of the Law.] (35) And if they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church. [End of quote]

Paul’s response to the above quotation is this:

(36) WHAT??? Did the word of God come forth from you (rather than by the Spirit)? Or did it come to you (men) only?

In other words, Paul was refuting this idea. The word of God can come from either men or women. For instance, Philip had four daughters who prophesied (Acts 21:9). Does anything think that they had to prophesy only to their husbands at home? Can they prophesy in the street but not in the church? No, Paul says that the prophetic word of God can come through both men and women.

In the Old Testament, Miriam was a prophetess (Ex. 15:20). Deborah was a prophetess (Judg. 4:4). Huldah was a prophetess (2 Kings 22:14). Isaiah married a prophetess (Isaiah 8:3), who bore him sons that were named prophetically. So it is plain that the word of God can come forth from women as well as men. I cannot speak for anyone else, but I want to hear the word of God regardless of who it comes through. And I believe that the Apostle Paul believed the same, because he was appalled (no pun intended) that the Corinthians would be swayed to think otherwise.

So the revelation from the three meetings at Manassas were partially meant to right an injustice toward women and to recognize their right to prophesy. Not many were scheduled speakers, but more than a dozen found opportunity to share. On one level, the three Manassas meetings represented the three occasions where the daughters of Zelophehad are mentioned in Scripture. Hence, this third meeting represented them receiving their inheritance.

Space does not permit me to share all the things that happened at the conference. James will share more in his bulletins, no doubt. You can get his mailings by writing to:
