God’s people are in a place that is very much like a wilderness, where Holy Spirit led Jesus out to the wilderness in order to confront satan. It was in the wilderness where the enemy tried to tempt Jesus but Jesus overcame every temptation the enemy could throw at Him, overcoming the power of this world!!
We overcome the power of this world in our “wilderness” times, where it seems like we are in a dry place and we are wanting to go higher in the Lord God, in order that we know His plan and purpose for our lives and the ones we love.
Recently, God had me do a couple of Facebook Live videos regarding this place we are at, which includes the attack of the “snarling, howling dogs,” which we see in Psalm 59, who represent the attacks of the enemy against God’s people through those given over to the devices of the slanderer, accuser (satan), to try and devour. Their words are the tongue of hell and have been after God’s people because of the fruitfulness of the works of God in the saints!
The enemy has been bringing distractions on every end along with these attacks to wear us out, but it is not prospering! God has allowed this attack as He did with Job, Peter, Hannah, King David, Joseph, Paul and more for one purpose, which is to bring an increase anointing of righteousness and truth to His people in the power of His Glory that is filled with His steadfast love!
Only God could have given me further revelation about these “snarling, howling dogs,” which all began in 2012 when I audibly heard a pack of wolves howling. No one else heard it but the howling was so loud that I had to stop what I was doing because I wanted to find out where it was coming. I then figured out that I was hearing in the spirit what was going on. Likewise, yesterday when I taught on Facebook Live, I audibly heard noises twice while teaching this nearly 5 years later, that I had to stop teaching to go find what was making the noise and no one nor anything was there.
If you have not seen the Facebook Live teaching from 2/14/2017 you need to watch it!!! That video is so anointed and takes the scriptures I am about to give you, putting it into a great tapestry of truth and righteousness to strengthen the saints.
First, God had me go to Psalm 59 about the snarling, growling wolves, which I have dreamed about and posted in my notes, that represent people given over to the enemy’s plan through pride. These dogs are not “one” dog but many dogs, which we will get to the reason why in a minute.
1 Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; defend and protect me from those who rise up against me. 2 Deliver me from and lift me above those who work evil and save me from bloodthirsty men. 3 For, behold, they lie in wait for my life; fierce and mighty men are banding together against me, not for my transgression nor for any sin of mine, O Lord. 4 They run and prepare themselves, though there is no fault in me; rouse Yourself [O Lord] to meet and help me, and see! 5 You, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations; spare none and be not merciful to any who treacherously plot evil. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 6 They return at evening, they howl and snarl like dogs, and go [prowling] about the city. 7 Behold, they belch out [insults] with their mouths; swords [of sarcasm, ridicule, slander, and lies] are in their lips, for who, they think, hears us? 8 But You, O Lord, will laugh at them [in scorn]; You will hold all the nations in derision. 9 O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense (my Protector and High Tower). 10 My God in His mercy and steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look [triumphantly] on my enemies (those who lie in wait for me). 11 Slay them not, lest my people forget; scatter them by Your power and make them wander to and fro, and bring them down, O Lord our Shield! 12 For the sin of their mouths and the words of their lips, let them even be trapped and taken in their pride, and for the cursing and lying which they utter. Psalm 59:1-12 Amp
These dogs as you see here in Psalm 59 represent King David’s adversaries that assailed him, bringing torment to his mind, which caused him to seek out one thing, God’s steadfast love. You see the emphasis about these snarling, growling dogs is their tongue (lips) where they utter lies and curses in order to send the message of the enemy to King David. It is this message that is like the thorn Paul deals with in 2 Corinthians 12 that is a messenger sent by satan, to buffet his flesh. God gave Paul grace to overcome and we see here with King David, that God gives him grace to overcome. (I get into the Hebrew words for the lies and curses in the video so watch it!)
In Psalm 59:12 we see that a trap is set for these snarling howling dogs because of their PRIDE! Last year God had me prophesy that 2016 would be a year of humility and God’s great bounty. He had me teach on the fall of Lucifer and the iniquity of pride that was brought into this world because of that fall. God had me warning the saints to not be deceived to this pride that was battling against the church, so that no one would be deceived.
After God showed me the pride in Psalm 59:12, I later talked with Crystal Huerta who gave me a dream she had a couple of years ago about the church in the wilderness. While the church was in the wilderness they banded together in love to take care of one another and searched for water and bread. Water represents Rivers of Living Water and the bread represents the Bread of Life. While Crystal told me her dreams she said that these three dogs came up to them in the wilderness and she knew they were not dogs but represented people. They asked for water and bread, representing the TRUTH. Once Crystal began to give them the water and the bread the dogs instead began to attack her. God revealed to me that this was like the Pharisees whose real motive was not to ASK to get an answer from Jesus about truth, but rather it was a TRAP! Their motives were revealed once they asked for the truth and got the Truth, because they attacked Jesus. They did not want the truth but merely wanted to set up a trap so they could attack Jesus.
After that conversation as I drove back to Rich’s work, I saw a car tag that was personalized with KING74. God then said “Robin find the King in Psalm 74!” I know Psalm 74 because I am always quoting Psalm 74:14 when I get mad at the devil and want to have what I like to term, a “BARBECUE!”
1 O God, why do You cast us off forever? Why does Your anger burn and smoke against the sheep of Your pasture? 2 [Earnestly] remember Your congregation which You have acquired of old, which You have redeemed to be the tribe of Your heritage; remember Mount Zion, where You have dwelt. 3 Direct Your feet [quickly] to the perpetual ruins and desolations; the foe has devastated and desecrated everything in the sanctuary. 4 In the midst of Your Holy Place Your enemies have roared [with their battle cry]; they set up their own [idol] emblems for signs [of victory]. 5 They seemed like men who lifted up axes upon a thicket of trees to make themselves a record. 6 And then all the carved wood of the Holy Place they broke down with hatchets and hammers. 7 They have set Your sanctuary on fire; they have profaned the dwelling place of Your [a]Name by casting it to the ground. 8 They said in their hearts, Let us make havoc [of such places] altogether. They have burned up all God’s meetinghouses in the land. 9 We do not see our symbols; there is no longer any prophet, neither does any among us know for how long. 10 O God, how long is the adversary to scoff and reproach? Is the enemy to blaspheme and revile Your name forever? 11 Why do You hold back Your hand, even Your right hand? Draw it out of Your bosom and consume them [make an end of them]! 12 Yet God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth. 13 You did divide the [Red] Sea by Your might; You broke the heads of the [Egyptian] dragons in the waters. 14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan (Egypt); You did give him as food for the creatures inhabiting the wilderness. Psalm 74:1-14 Amp
God showed me the desolation and burning of His synagogue here represented the tongue of the enemy as in James 3 that is a raging fire of Gehenna (hell) that brings destruction wherever it goes. He showed me this is the enemy making the noise like in Psalm 59, with those snarling dogs who make a NOISE as in 1 Peter 5, when he warns the church that satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. It is the soberness of 1 Peter 5 that the church needs to walk in now because of this attack.
The tongues of the enemy’s fire of hell in those given over to pride is raging in this hour as they speak slanders and accusations against God’s people. This is so on the Father’s heart that He has me wide awake at 1 am in this morning typing this note for the body of Christ Jesus to be on alert. (See 1 Peter 5:6-10)
This roaring lion is the same noise in Psalm 59 that is seen as well in Psalm 74 in the destruction of God’s synagogue. At the time of this desolation in God’s house, He sees after His flock and answers them as He crushes the many heads of the dragon in Psalm 74:13. Then we see in Psalm 74:14 how God cuts leviathan and feeds the meat of it to the creatures in the wilderness. In the King James Version it does not say creatures but rather “People” in the wilderness. Then God showed me this KING OF OLD, the Ancient of Days (The King of Glory) from Psalm 24 is this King that slays leviathan. Leviathan represents pride and I have six notes written on this spirit that I have been reposting. What is interesting is another facebook friend asked me to send it to her right before God connected the dogs and leviathan, revealing to me that the revealing of what the body of Christ is presently going through.
The meat here in Psalm 74:14 represents the anointed Word that has caused us to overcome this attack of the enemy that operated in the hearts of others given over to pride. The way we overcome is the power of God’s love. This attack is merely allowed to give us an increase of the STEADFAST LOVE of God, causing a greater humility and love for the lost and the oppressed!
God then took me to Isaiah 35, which I have taught on many times and year 3 of God’s Fire Wall School of the Prophets is the Isaiah 35:8 Trek, the Highway of Holiness. After God told me to read Isaiah 35, I knew that the Rose of Sharon grows in the desert (dry places/wilderness). It is in our time of testing and trial (1 Peter 1:6-7) that we actually grow and get bountiful!!!!
1 The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the rose and the autumn crocus. 2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellency of [Mount] Carmel and [the plain] of Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty and splendor and excellency of our God. 3 Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble and tottering knees. 4 Say to those who are of a fearful and hasty heart, Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance; with the recompense of God He will come and save you. 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap like a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. 7 And the burning sand and the mirage shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; in the haunt of jackals, where they lay resting, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And a highway shall be there, and a way; and it shall be called the Holy Way. The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for the redeemed; the wayfaring men, yes, the simple ones and fools, shall not err in it and lose their way. 9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk on it. 10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Isaiah 35:1-10 Amp
Here God specifically pointed out Isaiah 35:7, where there are JACKALS in the wilderness. Jackals are slender, long legged wild DOGS!!! God said, “there it is Robin!” Then, He told me to look at the Hebrew word for Jackals. As I looked it up I found out the word was Tanniyn, which means “A MARINE OR LAND MONSTER, SEA SERPENT, JACKAL, DRAGON, SEA MONSTER, SERPENT AND WHALE!” (SCH # 8577)
I looked at the King James Version and it does not say Jackals but rather DRAGONS! Then God told me to go back and look at Psalm 74:13-14. As I looked at Psalm 74:13 I saw where God BROKE THE HEADS OF THE DRAGONS! God said look at that Hebrew word. I looked up the Hebrew word for dragons in Psalm 74:13 and it was the EXACT word for Jackals in Isaiah 35:7!!!!! God said, “Robin the dogs represent the many heads of Leviathan, which is why you don’t see ‘one dog’ but many dogs.”
This totally blew my mind!!! God gave me so many confirmations on this entire series over the last three weeks that I have been overwhelmed. Even Matthew last week told me that in American Literature they were studying a poem called THE HOWL. I stopped him and asked Matthew, “What did you say?” It blew my mind that I had him spell it out to me and he said, “H…O….W….L.”
It was here in Isaiah 35:5-6 where is saw the lame man leap and the blind man see, the tongue singing, along with deaf ears being unstopped. At this time RIVERS began to flow in the wilderness!!!! God showed me this many times before as I have preached that the waters represent Holy Spirit (the anointing) in His people when they overcome the enemy in the wilderness!
He showed me that we are presently overcoming Leviathan in our wilderness and God is strengthening us to overcome!!!! God then likened Isaiah 35:5-6 to Job 29!!!! He said Robin I am going to give the anointing of Job 29!!!!
1 And Job again took up his discussion and said, 2 Oh, that I were as in the months of old, as in the days when God watched over me, 3 When His lamp shone above and upon my head and by His light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the [prime] ripeness of my days, when the friendship and counsel of God were over my tent, 5 When the Almighty was yet with me and my children were about me, 6 When my steps [through rich pasturage] were washed with butter and the rock poured out for me streams of oil! 7 When I went out to the gate of the city, when I prepared my seat in the street [the broad place for the council at the city’s gate], 8 The young men saw me and hid themselves; the aged rose up and stood; 9 The princes refrained from talking and laid their hands on their mouths; 10 The voices of the nobles were hushed, and their tongues cleaved to the roof of their mouths. 11 For when the ear heard, it called me happy and blessed me; and when the eye saw, it testified for me [approvingly], 12 Because I delivered the poor who cried, the fatherless and him who had none to help him. 13 The blessing of him who was about to perish came upon me, and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me or clothed itself with me; my justice was like a robe and a turban or a diadem or a crown! 15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame. 16 I was a father to the poor and needy; the cause of him I did not know I searched out. Job 29:1-16 Amp
The anointing we are obtaining in God’s STEADFAST LOVE, is revealed in Job 29:12-16!!! The righteousness of Christ Jesus, the King of Glory who rewards unto us righteousness from the Lord God of our SALVATION! (Psalm 24:5) We are receiving this blessing because we have overcome the enemy (snarling dogs/leviathan) pride in our wilderness!!! We have been strengthened by God’s love to overcome!!!!
What is sooooo wild is yesterday Rich brought me roses to celebrate our love. A friend, Kathy Forbes, mentioned to me that I had just preached on ROSES (the Rose of Sharon) that day on Facebook Live!!!!! It totally blew my mind and I could see how we as the Rose of Sharon are blossoming abundantly in this trial! Saints of God hold on; God’s steadfast love is coming to give you a greater strength an power to know the power of His Glory!
