The Summer of 2018 and October – We go from “ashes” and the clearing of the “underbrush and swamp” to the “cultivation of newly cleared land”. Interesting, especially with all the other ongoing prophetic words from respected people who speak of a transformative breakthrough in October and beyond. Here are some encouraging themes for Redding.
Luke 10:19 – “See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will hurt you.”
Items of interest. You just have to wonder sometimes about some of these things. We wonder why on July 2 – 22 days before the devastating, refining, tragic and transformative Carr Fire the beloved Chief of Redding Fire Gerry Gray died at age 54. The head of local firefighting efforts is gone…literally and symbolically. Gray means “of a color intermediate between black and white, as of ashes or an overcast sky. dull and nondescript; without interest or character.”
This is the first pre-Carr Fire prophetic word we have heard.
“And I heard the Lord say that the winds our West. Winds blowing over the state of California are going to be detrimental. Because the wind that was meant to be a blessing and refreshing to the state is going to turn into an evil thing. Because you have dried your ground up. You have made it kindling for hell to set a match to. And when the wind begins to blow it will spread the fire that I did not set.”
[A swirl of flames tearing through Northern California with the deadly Carr Fire. One of the most destructive wildfires in the history of the state and certainly for Shasta County and Redding. Massive vortexes looming over entire neighborhoods while houses on the ground explode into fireballs.]
“For how long says the Lord, do you think California you will go killing and extracting the blood of unborn children. How long will you be able to stand in ankle deep blood of the children. For you are bringing these detrimental and devastating things upon yourself. For I am not sending disaster. It is built into the system of harvest. You are sowing the seeds for your own demise.”
(Was Gerry Gray’s sudden death exactly three weeks prior to the Carr Fire a warning? What greater symbol that the removal of the leader of the city of Redding Fire operations.)
“I’m going to send you a sign. One of your heroes. One of your political or natural heroes (in some other field) are going to fall and will not be able to rise again. And you will know that I have warned you of these things.” The hand of God is the covenant and the system of harvest. The hand of God. The Apostle. The Prophet. The Evangelist. The Pastor and the Teacher. For it has been prophesied in California for these words of prophets are going forth and it is time for the hand of God to move on the state of California.
For there will be fire separations. It will be spoken of and dissected five times. For this thing is upon you.
The City of Redding lost her Fire Chief. Gerry Gray would have been at the helm of Carr Fire containment operations. Other capable leaders, of course, took charge. The prophetic symbol of Gerry’s passing is significant.
…A fragment of charred scripture from the Carr Fire found by a Redding, CA couple from 1 Kings 20:13
1 Kings 20:13 “Then a certain prophet came up to King Ahab of Israel and said “Thus says the Lord, Have you seen all this great multitude? Look, I will give it into your hand today, and you shall know that I am the Lord.” Ahab said, “By whom?” He said, “Thus says the Lord, By the young men who serve the district governors.” Then he said, “Who shall begin the battle?” He answered “You.” (NRSV)
Shawn Bolz Prophesies Romans 8:28 Over California’s Detrimental Carr Fire
“Before the greatest modern outpouring for charismatic and Pentecostalism, there was a great earthquake in San Francisco. It devastated the city, and believers began to pray and act. Some interpreted it as the voice of God wanting to wake people up to conviction. Others felt it was the enemy releasing hell because he knew heaven was about to visit and bring in more salvations than the world had seen in this generation.”
“I believe what God will do in Redding shortly after this terrible week will be historic for the church at large and will help to bring about a window of evangelism and ingenuity to the church that will come across media, both Christian and secular: Breakthrough is imminent!”

Redding is a very nice place to live. The city is largely free of territorial ethnic gang warfare. The housing market is growing. Centrally located on the I-5 corridor, Redding is the gateway to Shasta-Cascade beauty, Oregon, Lassen Volcanic National Park and to the Eastern expanses of Nevada and beyond.

Particularly in Redding, California and Shasta County the expression of Holy Spirit Prophetic Artistic Outpouring among the prophetic sojourners and creative worship intercessors at Bethel and throughout the North State Body of Christ. Expressions of worship and colorful representations of the move of God in the hearts and lives of individuals. God is moving and the dark poverty flats assessment of Redding is transforming, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, into a hotspot for the healing light of Jesus in Northern California.
As the Holy Spirit moves, joy, regeneration, healing, encouragement. God is always moving and working. Praise the name of Jesus, high and lifted up, in all these matter. New purpose. New hope. New opportunity. He opens the doors of healing restoration.
And that is what it is. God says, “I give you permission to create.” The work of the Cross of Jesus Christ. Regeneration through the Holy Spirit. The colorful life of the regenerated heart. Moving forward, laying out each step and God engineers circumstances. Years of darkness become years of new beginnings and new hope.
The Colorful Expression of Prophetic Art and Worship
Historical Perspective – Apostolic and Prophetic Hub in Northern California – Harvest Rock Pasadena, The Call, Morningstar Ministries, Kansas City IHOP, Redding Little Country Church and the Move of God in Shasta County.
Bethel Church in Redding California is a core component of North State (Shasta County specifically) dislodgement out of poverty, drugged-out confusion and progressive homosexual urban center cultural agendas also known as the spirit of the world. Bethel’s rise and emphasis on healing (Bethel Healing Rooms / SOZO Healing & Deliverance) and prophetic supernatural ministry in Redding ideally targets the flat-line lawless individualism of secularism. How? Because of an emphasis on healing and freedom in the Holy Spirit to develop, know and express the gifts and the call of God through the love of Jesus Christ in healing and prophetic community of saints and relationships within and “on earth as it is in heaven” signs and wonders to the desperate and dark dwellers on the earth without.
God is moving chess pieces around. Redding’s reputation as poverty-flats outpost on the way to Oregon and Idaho; super-heated in the Summer thermal layers of the Shasta Basin, attracting the criminals, drug-addicts, homeless “tweakers”, who frequent the areas of Churn Creek Ave. and the Dana Drive Redding Walmart property provides the perfect backdrop for the light to shine in the darkness. In fact, the “Redding Gold” Johnny Enlow spoke of in his recent prophetic word is the salvation, healing, and regenerative work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of people. California Culture / Kingdom Culture
3. People are also being moved OUT OF where they are not supposed to be. That is also a lesson learned by experiencing first-hand spiritual and geographical resettlement. Some people are simply removed by the hand of God because they are not supposed to be in a particular place at a particular time; i.e. prophetic predators, narcissistic jezebel ministry targeting, etc. It’s fascinating to watch.

Redding is about to experience an amazing resurgence in the moral dignity of the community. Finally, Bethel’s Alabaster Prayer House is a largely unknown 24 / 7 prayer furnace altering the regional spiritual landscape.
There is literally so much Kingdom activity and displacement taking place that these times have to be considered among the most divinely orchestrated and destiny-charged ever. We are presently in a world extreme makeover reality that is unprecedented in its scope and scale. These are revolutionary days of wholesale transformation, and creation itself is uniquely stirred and responsive to all that is taking place. – Johnny Enlow
California Gold and the Redding of California
“…the unique call of Redding, California as a city and apostolic hub for the state. Some of it has to do with the definition of the word Redding. There is a verb: ‘to red or redd’ that means ‘to put in order; to tidy; to clear; to save; to deliver; to rescue.”
Azusa Now 2016: Convergence of the Ages and the Harvest Glory Angel
“I believe Harvey was initially activated in the Azusa Street Revival of 1906, is about 4 stories tall, has a golden-orange hue, and hoists a huge sickle that seems to function as an extension of who he is. He serves and works with the Holy Spirit in harvesting souls and nations.”
O Jerusalem, and Matters of Solomon
“From the nation born in 1776, comes the man in ’17 born 7667 days before the end of The Six Day War. The 6 Day War resulted in Israel reclaiming Jerusalem on 6/7/67 and ended 7667 days from Trump’s birth.”
1958 Western: A Man Named Trump Promises to Build a Wall in Texas
“You can say everything is coming together perfectly, or everything is falling apart right on schedule.” He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. Daniel 2:21
“A man named Trump appears in an episode of the 1950s Western called Trackdown. Trump in this episode is a con man who comes into town declaring the end of the world at midnight. According to Trump he is the only one who can save them by building a wall. Town officials try to figure out ways to stop this “snake oil salesman”. The episode is called The End of the World.”
Mankind created in the image of God was given dominion by God the Creator over the creation. Dismantling natural human male-female gender roles, corrupting the proper use of dominion, disrupts to the core that which is under submission. The trickle-down effect upon the animal kingdom is astonishing. That which men have dominion over is itself suffering the carnage of #genderconfusion.
#genderdestruction is a symbol of mankind’s slavery to creation.
Romans 8: 19-23 “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.”
Within the McConnell Arboretum and Botanical Gardens located over the Sundial Bridge across the Sacramento River from the Turtle Bay Exploration Park is a telling Earth Stone monolith representing the nature of creation worship. The union of dual-rising phalluses adorned with colorful inset images of the creation commissioned to honor homosexual union.
Genesis 1:26-27 “Then God said, ‘Let us make humankind in our image in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.’
So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.”
Bethel’s Alabaster Prayer House, located high atop the City of Redding, and the prophetic intercessors within, lift prayers to the God of Heaven and Earth. It could be said that the Prayer House and the Pagan McConnell Arboretum Earth Stone represent the dual paradigms of the current debate about the role, identity and dominion of men and women created in the image of God, not only in Shasta County but throughout the nation.
1:20-23 “Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things he has made. So they are without excuse; for though they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools; and they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling a mortal human being or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.”
24-25 “Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the degrading of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”
26-27 “For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.”
28 – 32 “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things that should not be done. They were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, foolish, faithless, heartless ruthless. They know God’s decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die – yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practice them.”
Earthstone,Turtle Bay’s New Outdoor Exhibit: A Massive Sculptural Art Piece
“Lawrence ‘Bud’ Dillon commissioned the sculpture to honor his late partner Don Oestreicher. Telling [Redding artist Colleen Barry] about his former partner of 18 years and how they’d both loved art, Dillon said he wanted to create something to honor Oestreicher, something the community would enjoy.”
Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.”
California Senator Democrat Richard Pan puts before the assembly SB-1424 Internet.
“This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.”
Without going into all the details at this point, mainly because there aren’t any; this bill, if it were to pass as is, will be left to the courts to figure out and decide what any of this means.
Obviously, the fact (no pun intended) that Mr. Pan actually thought this up and moved it forward is well totalitarian, Orwellian, northkoreanesque, unconstitutional and unbelievable.
Questions: “Internet Web site with a physical presence in California” – we would assume that means a California business with a physical address that also maintains a web presence. It raises unknown questions about all others like the rogue author sitting in a Starbucks in Los Angeles posting web content stories, news, opinion, social commentary from their smartphone.
And we could go down the list – strategic plan, news stories, “mitigate”, false information.
Certainly, this Gestapo-like thought-crime group called the “fact checkers”, the verification police, enter into the equation.
