We saw in note 1 & 2 how the phoenix operates by rising up out of the ashes of death, lifting up its neck (coming into authority-illegally) and seizing to rule God’s people, bringing division, brawling and strife! Once rebellion rises up, not only will it manifest in one but opportunity is seized and if the root is in another it will rise up and manifest there, too. We can see this in the next scripture. Remember too that a spirit has been sent by God against Abimelech and the men of Shechem.

26 And Gaal son of Ebed came with his kinsmen and moved into Shechem, and the men of Shechem put confidence in him. 27 And they went out into the field, gathered their vineyard fruits and trod them, and held a festival; and going into the house of their god, they ate and drank and cursed Abimelech. 28 Gaal son of Ebed said, Who is Abimelech, and who are we of Shechem, that we should serve him? Were not the son of Jerubbaal and Zebul, his officer, servants of the men of Hamor the father and founder of Shechem? Then why should we serve him? 29 Would that this people were under my hand! Then would I remove Abimelech and say to him, Increase your army and come out. Judges 9:26-29

So Gaal comes forth into Shechem to begin cursing Abimelech, therefore death is multiplied and rebellion spreads. Normally a person would expect the opposite to happen and that there would be great rejoicing with rebellion being confronted by this means, however, you have to understand what is occurring. Where there is exposure of the phoenix operating the root of rebellion in others will rise up and look as righteous anger or indignation but truly it is self-righteousness, pride and rebellion that has taken a hold of that person that has risen up and is being exposed. The phoenix rises up and shows the root, seed of rebellion in the camp. You cannot fight rebellion with rebellion that is an oxymoron. Rather, God is Lord of the battle and He fights the battle for you in Love and Love does confront. Therefore, as Christ Jesus confronted in love, God requires that we confront in love and not in rebellion. Whenever someone confronts this spirit out of rebellion it exposes that they need to have it uprooted out of them. That is what we see here with Gaal. He is son of Ebed and he brings his kinsmen (others) and moves into Shechem (the place of the neck, the shoulders, authority) and the men of Shechem who have a spirit sent to them to cause them to be at enmity with Abimelech receive Gaal, another rebellious one, with whom there is no enmity.

Gaal in Hebrew means “loathing” and comes from the root word meaning “to detest, abhor, reject, vile, cast away, fail and loathe. (Hebrew Words # 1603 and 1602). Loathing means to feel intense dislike or disgust for, therefore, the person given over to rebellion that rises up to confront the rebellion because they have intense dislike or disgust for a person is where murder is caused. Again we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against ruling powers and principalities in the heavenly realm. When I have seen this it looks as though the person cares for the ministry or the church but instead what they are doing is rising up because they hate their brother, murder and envy is exposed, death is exposed and there is fruit of phoenix operating in their life, where they are rising up in illegal authority to seize rule an reign over the situation. This happened in our ministry when someone whom I believe does care for me and truly believes she was in the right began calling me and seeing things operating that she did not like. However, after time the enemy was exposed because before long she began saying she did not want to come to meetings because she “could not stand” another sister that was in attendance and began tearing the sister down. I did not stand for the tearing down of another person and confronted the woman of this matter and she did not receive the word in love and instead became even more disgusted and felt distaste as well as disdain for the sister and all that came out of her mouth was death. God uprooted the woman out of our ministry because she was in rebellion and had the phoenix operating in her life trying to seize authority illegitimately through confronting another one whom she believed to be in rebellion by her own rebellion. That is what Gaal did, he had loathing for Abimelech. We are to pray for those that curse us and bless them. Jesus said we are to bless our enemies. Does that mean we tolerate their devil hitting us, no but if we confront the matter we do it out of love and not out of disgust.

If you look at the six notes from leviathan it gets into great depiction about how leviathan operates; remember it begins with self-righteousness (behemoth) then leads to pride (leviathan) which in time leads to rebellion (the phoenix). Therefore, pride has already taken deep root before you ever see rebellion manifest. From note 2 of leviathan that God had me write on the Cursed Structure of Pride. Remember pride is laid as the foundation on top of self-righteousness to which rebellion is built.

LEVIATHAN IN THE CHURCH Leviathan in pride enters us and the church when we allow our will to usurp the will of the Father. The dream God had given me many years ago during a time in which the attack of Leviathan would hit me and was hitting the Bride of Christ Jesus all over the earth and I didn’t understand it at the time I had the dream because it seems as though it is so full of symbolism that does not make sense. However, when Holy Spirit showed me yesterday the attack of leviathan in and against us God revealed the revelation of the dream. Dream: I was in a church and the church was built as a barn type structure and a hall ran down the middle of the barn. On the left side was a Sunday school room and when I went in is was not a pure white room but an ivory white room with chairs sat up in it and in the classroom Holy Spirit said to me this is not pure but appears pure leave. I get up out of the Sunday school room only to go across the hall to the sanctuary that is constructed like a theater concert hall setting and is totally black as you would see in a movie theater. I walk in and God instructed me that it was based on entertainment, lifting up man’s agenda, and creating an atmosphere of performance and instructed me to leave. I got up and walked down the hall and went to the left side at the end of the hall at the opposite end and there was a tiny old bathroom that had a small shower and sink to use. I walked in and saw a couple (who now are divorced) and they were getting out of the shower with their clothes on and acted as if they took a shower, leaving the bathroom. I looked and the mirror was covered with all this thick film it was difficult to even look in the mirror. I wiped the film off and looked in the mirror and I saw ashes all over my head, as when the prophets of old repented they covered themselves in ashes. I started wiping the ashes out of my hair and pulled back the shower curtain to get into the shower and wash my hair and noticed that the shower had not been used for years because it was covered with spider webs. I wiped the spider webs out of the shower and then turned on the water that had not been used in a long time to let it flow through the shower. I took a shower and came out dressed with a sport top on and pants. I sat down at the end of the hall looking in a mirror and at the end of the hall was a business man whom I know that is a strong Christian and has been persecuted greatly. His first name is David and I was trying to show him my rib area as when a body builder is showing their rib muscles. Afterward, I rose up from the place I was sitting and walked outside of the church where there was a beautiful scene of the outdoor area so green and plush. I shut the door and on the door it was like a huge X and I left. God showed me what the dream meant. The ivory colored Sunday school room indicated that the teachings that it looked pure but was not pure but instead had been tainted by flesh which had caused it to be unclean. Then the sanctuary that was like a theater and performance oriented indicated that God was not lifted up but rather man lifted himself up and was performing, being a celebrity of sorts to the audience in the church. The church had become a mere concert or performance to entertain people. Later as I walked to the end of the hall and went into the old green bathroom Holy Spirit showed me that because of envy in the church there was no true healing and deliverance but rather the mirror was covered up so people could not see truly their condition. Moreover, the fact that I had ashes on the top of my head indicated Holy Spirit had caused a repentance to rise up in me so that I could see truly the condition of the surroundings and take the word to clean things. The couple that was in the shower and thought they took a shower never turned on the water but rather stepped out and thought they were clean. The washing of the Word was not flowing, Holy Spirit was not flowing in their healing and deliverance but they thought they were delivered and healed but truly were not. The spider webs in the shower are in reference to Isaiah 59.

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it cannot hear.2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.3 For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue mutters wickedness.4 None sues or calls in righteousness [but for the sake of doing injury to others—to take some undue advantage]; no one goes to law honestly and pleads [his case] in truth; they trust in emptiness, worthlessness and futility, and speaking lies! They conceive mischief and bring forth evil!5 THEY HATCH ADDERS’ EGGS AND WEAVE THE SPIDER’S WEB; HE WHO EATS OF THEIR EGGS DIES, AND [FROM AN EGG] WHICH IS CRUSHED A VIPER BREAKS OUT [FOR THEIR NATURE IS RUINOUS, DEADLY, EVIL].6 THEIR WEBS WILL NOT SERVE AS CLOTHING, NOR WILL THEY COVER THEMSELVES WITH WHAT THEY MAKE; THEIR WORKS ARE WORKS OF INIQUITY, AND THE ACT OF VIOLENCE IS IN THEIR HANDS.7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their paths and highways.8 The way of peace they know not, and there is no justice or right in their goings. They have made them into crooked paths; whoever goes in them does not know peace. Isaiah 59:1-8.

The adder’s egg, the snake, here indicating leviathan is hatched along with the weaving of the spider’s web in order that instead of being washed in the washing of the Word, instead people think they are eating the Word but instead, they are eating of the adder’s egg, that of a viper and although they think it is God speaking to them it is satan because the truth is twisted and perverted, unclean, and has no power but instead has become witchcraft. They then use the witchcraft, twisting of the truth, to cover themselves and that is their covering, not the righteousness of Christ Jesus but rather they are workers of iniquity, committing acts of violence, running to evil, shedding innocent blood, having thoughts of iniquity and bring destruction wherever they go. They think they know peace but that way they do not know because they are workers of iniquity. Holy Spirit showed me this begins in a person or church that because of pride stirring up in them they instead of wanting to see the image of God in which they are made, they instead want to be “like God, like the Most High” just as Lucifer in heaven and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They both wanted to usurp God and be “like” Him. The reason God had me turn on the water was because the Word was not flowing and used it to wash myself not getting weaved in the web of leviathan. In addition I was at the end showing off my ribs to David as a body builder, indicating that I was my beloved’s because David means beloved and the rib area indicates where a person is ONE WITH, UNITED WITH. I was united with God in the truth and I walked out of the place that had deception due to pride. Like in Isaiah 14 where Lucifer wanted to be “like the Most High” in Hebrew is dâmâh and means “to compare, to resemble, to liken, to consider, and devise.” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word # 1819). Note location (

The adders egg in the web of leviathan is the weaving of pride throughout an area and on the web, messages are sent, by placing the cords of the enemy inside the person, where they are manipulated in their own soul with a root of pride which in time if not dealt with can lead to rebellion so the eggs are truly eggs laid for rebellion. That if people do not get delivered from SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRIDE they will be an instrument by which the enemy can operate though rebellion to cause strife in God’s house. The dream regarding the church I had been in I knew by God the Father and from another who was a part of the plan of the enemy at that time that many curses of death were being spoken over me continually. I knew all that was going on and actually have that dream in my notes too regarding leviathan where people were looking for Mr. and Mrs. Pride in the dream. In my flesh I wanted to stand up and defend myself and say “God already told me you all were going to do this and let me tell you what else He told me.” But by God’s omnipotent and omniscient grace that sustained me and fed me I chose instead to walk in love and let God be God of the battle. Because had I risen up to come against those in leadership who were deceived it would have looked like rebellion and could have led to rebellion in me. Therefore, God was causing me to be humbled and know that I can only walk in the legitimate power that He alone has given me and since I was not a leader in that ministry I could not rise up and confront this circumstance in the midst of my trial when in truth my trial was to uproot any rebellion in me that would war against God’s authority. Instead I chose to pray for those in leadership who were deceived and not be like Gaal who through rebellion rose up to defend God’s people.

On the same note let me make mention that over the ministry God has given Rich and I (God’s Fire Wall) God has given me legitimate authority that the enemy through self righteousness and pride in others has led to rebellion and caused them in their sin nature to rise up against my authority in the ministry by speaking double mindedness, curses, and death over our ministry as well as stating how they would have run things for certain events or not done this or that and what they think is they are of God an do not realize they are doing the work of satan. When I am given the green light, after praying for the person (by the discernment Holy Spirit has given me), where I have already informed my husband of the dreams and scriptures God is giving me about someone who is operating in this, then I do confront but I do it in the love of Christ Jesus. However, remember offense is a shovel (which is in my first book Glory to Glory Sisterhood, God’s Sorority), and if we do not allow the offense to shovel out self-righteousness, pride and rebellion in us then the shovel of offense and being offended will cause God to shovel the person out of the ministry. It is truly God’s battle because He is God Almighty and He will not tolerate rebellion in His house. Also remember as we are about to see that it attacks (is cloaked until the time) where God’s anointing of His glory is increasing and there is harvest coming forth into the ministry. The Good news is that the ministry is bearing fruit which is why the enemy is attacking God’s authority (the leaders of the ministry). Also, God works all things to our good and the reason He is allowing the attack is because He wants to increase the anointing and bring enlargement of territory but it comes by fighting this giant of the phoenix not in your strength but in the Word in power, in prayer and in standing your ground, which grows you strong in spirit (Luke 1:80; 2:40) and matures you in Love (2 Corinthians 13:11), as well as to give you endurance of God’s hope to have the character of Christ Jesus (Romans 5:3-5). Therefore, God has already equipped us for the battle to get the victory through Christ Jesus!!! When the attack comes against our ministry and it is confronted in love, God cuts off the cords of the spider web from that instrument which was used and we still pray for them! Does it mean I talk with them or spend time with them, no because God has given that time as opportunity for the person to repent and until true repentance comes by the power of God’s Holy Spirit in that one that is deceived they are used as an instrument by which the enemy wants to bring discord and strife, leading to division. Therefore, God has us close the doors until repentance has come so it will not infect others. However, if others are operating in this root of rebellion God has us in turn praying for them and confronting them in love and if need be asking them to leave until true repentance comes. You do not allow the root of rebellion to stay in the midst of the congregation because it is there to bring division in the ministry. God has led me to understand and believe that God’s Fire Wall is His ministry not mine and that I will be held accountable for it; He has entrusted it to me. As a result, it does not matter if we have 3 people or thousands of people because it is not our ministry and if the root of rebellion is in anyone who is unwilling to repent I have no trouble by God’s Holy Spirit and grace asking them to leave until they bear the fruit of repentance on this issue. Moreover, God has had me guard my heart and those that I let close to me because through time and the testing of God’s Word in them they will be ready for promotion where they will not walk in pride and as in the leviathan note, note 1, want to gamble for the cloak of the ministry entrusted to Rich and I. We have to be given God’s instruction knowing that persons (s) are not giving their ear over to the spirit that operated in Abimelech/ rebellion that would try and still hit our ministry.

Therefore, this attack exposes anything in our own hearts where we love not our brother and our sister. People will know us by our love for one another. If anyone says, I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother [in Christ], he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen. 1 John 4:20.


26 And Gaal son of Ebed came with his kinsmen and moved into Shechem, and the men of Shechem put confidence in him. 27 And they went out into the field, gathered their vineyard fruits and trod them, and held a festival; and going into the house of their god, they ate and drank and cursed Abimelech. 28 Gaal son of Ebed said, Who is Abimelech, and who are we of Shechem, that we should serve him? Were not the son of Jerubbaal and Zebul, his officer, servants of the men of Hamor the father and founder of Shechem? Then why should we serve him? 29 Would that this people were under my hand! Then would I remove Abimelech and say to him, Increase your army and come out. Judges 9:26-29

Gaal is the son of Ebed; there is association to the fact of who is Gaal’s father. Ebed in Hebrew means “a servant, bondage, bondman, and comes from the root word meaning to “enslave, keep in bondage.” Therefore, Loathing (Gaal) was birthed because of bondage. Again this is exposing the phoenix, rebellion because if we do not get set free from the bondage we become enslaved and it controls and manipulates us, thereby controlling and manipulating others. Gaal takes those that are in bondage, his kinsmen, to Shechem and here loathing is stirred up in the midst of rebellion (those given over to the enemy’s schemes) and it could cause a “civil war” where it is brother fighting against brother, it is death multiplied, it is evil it is James 3:16!!!!!!! Nowhere is there to be a civil war in God’s church; that is an oxymoron! God’s true church has love and the love of Christ Jesus is what it is secured on!! People will know God’s church by its love not civil war! The enemy would have us to believe it is a civil war but it is not; God rules His own! Therefore, with God’s order established to uproot rebellion no civil war will be tolerated.

The men of Shechem receive loathing (Gaal) with open arms and moreover throw a party for him that they go out into “the field” and gather the fruit of the vineyards and trod them!! Again phoenix operates coming after the fruits of the field, plucking the harvest. So now rebellion has increased and the fruit is now being treaded, oppressed! Get ready, here is revelation! Remember that Baal –berrith means god of the covenant and baal means husband, master, ruler, minister and judge, thereby it is satan’s ministering illegally. When rebellion is operating in God’s church it is going to be doing so through “ministering to others” where the person in rebellion thinks they are the anointed one and they know better than the pastor, the leader and choose to take upon themselves to minister to others in the ministry or church, without legal authority and because they minister over them illegitimately it is not the ministry of God but rather of the enemy which causes the person(s) to be more enslaved and in bondage (more oppression) that they are not set free, which is the treading!! Does this sound familiar? It happened in heaven when Lucifer, who in his own righteousness thought he could be like God and in pride was stirred up to consider himself as God and finally, rebellion resulted and one third of the angels (kinsmen) followed Lucifer into rebellion against God!!!

God told me distinctly yesterday to go to Revelation 12:2 and what is so funny is another woman who is in our ministry had a dream that night and in the dream, I asked her if she was pregnant. That same morning God told me Revelation 12:2 which deals with the woman pregnant and in birth pangs, anguish for she was about to be delivered!!!!! It is here that you see rebellion, it is when the birth is about to occur, the contractions have begun and labor is in motion that the enemy is waiting there to pluck up the fruit of the ministry, the baby, the WORD!!!

And a great sign (wonder)—[warning of future events of ominous significance] appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and with a crownlike garland (tiara) of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and she cried out in her birth pangs, in the anguish of her delivery. 3 Then another ominous sign (wonder) was seen in heaven: Behold, a huge, fiery-red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven kingly crowns (diadems) upon his heads. 4 His tail swept [across the sky] and dragged down a third of the stars and flung them to the earth. And the dragon stationed himself in front of the woman who was about to be delivered, so that he might devour her child as soon as she brought it forth. Revelation 12:1-4

Here when the woman is in delivery (indicating Mary with Jesus) it was here where the enemy comes with his kinsmen who are in rebellion to god’s authority to “station” himself in front of the woman who is in labor to devour the CHILD!!!! Do you see this???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!! Messiah came to be a Breaker for God’s people and cause us to breakthrough!

12 I will surely gather all of you, O Jacob; I will surely collect the remnant of Israel. I will bring them [Israel] together like sheep in a fold, like a flock in the midst of their pasture. They [the fold and the pasture] shall swarm with men and hum with much noise. 13 The Breaker [the Messiah] will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head. Micah 2:12-13.


Moreover, the men of Shechem get together and curse Abimelech instead of praying for him. I constantly pray for those who curse and have rebelled against my authority because truly we have to maintain a position of love and not curse them but pray for them. However, we put up godly boundaries so that God’s authority in us is not usurped; it is God’s order. Now Gaal, loathing starts pointing out that not only are the men of Shechem not to be under Abimelech’s control, but now it is exposed, but also to they are not to be under Gidoen’s family either! There it is; the ultimate aim of rebellion when it is confronting rebellion is to seize rule and reign illegitimately over God’s authority!!

More to be continued in note 4!!!
