Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent. (Jeremiah 20:9)
The testimony of JESUS is the spirit of the prophecy. (Revelation 19:10c)

Ambushing the Lies with the Truth (Word)
And the LORD said to Joshua, “ Do not fear and do not be dismayed . Take all the fighting men with
you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, and his people, his city,
and his land. And you shall do to Ai and its king as you did to Jericho and its king . Only its spoil and
its livestock you shall take as plunder for yourselves. Lay an ambush against the city, behind it.”
(Joshua 8:1-2 ESV)
Before launching into what came to me this morning, a word is needed about the prophetic insights posted
on this site, which are nearing seventy in number. These insights support and build upon one another to
present one common theme about the signposts on the highway to the open manifestation of the
kingdom of God and all that this means to the human race of the 21 st century and future generations.
Today, the kingdom of God is mostly discerned spiritually, but the day is fast approaching when it will
manifest in such a way that the nations of the world will acknowledge that there is a creator God who
rules in the affairs of humanity. It will be an undeniable fact that heaven rules and heaven, that is, the will
of God, has come to earth, no longer simply discerned in spirit but visibly and tangibly experienced by all.
This is what I refer to as the open manifestation of the kingdom . Stated another way: the nations will
know that a new world order has come, not one of man’s planning but one according to the purpose of
God. In that day, all will begin to know God’s king of the nations—the Son of God, our Lord Jesus. King
Jesus is coming to reign preeminently and supremely . This is an undeniable and irrefutable fact! We are
on the highway to this glorious day.
This is what the prophetic insights are all about as they offer a consistent narrative that I believe has come
from the spirit of the Lord. Occasionally, someone might ask me what to read first, to which I respond:
Seek the Lord . I trust the spirit of the Lord, the spirit of truth, in God’s people to direct them to what is
important to their growth and insight. However, to offer a certain level of guidance, I purposely include
references to specific writings for augmentation with the encouragement to read these, as well. Now,
moving on.
As I inquired of the Lord this morning, I was led to Joshua 8:2 where the Lord commanded Joshua to lead
the sons of Israel in defeating the king of Ai, along with his people and city. They were to defeat Ai by
tricking the men of the city into pursuing them to the wilderness so that 5,000 of Joshua’s men that lay in
wait could rise up and ambush the defenseless city. And so, the story goes on, recounting Joshua’s victory
over Ai because the Lord was with them in the battle.
If you recall, earlier, Israel followed the Lord’s command to the letter and defeated Jericho. However, they
then suffered defeat at the hands of Ai due to Achan’s sin of coveting some banned goods and taking them
for himself. Israel would have no victory over Ai as long as Achan and his household remained within the
camp, so the sons of Israel stoned to death the entire household of Achan and burned all their possessions.
It was a complete and irrevocable blotting out of Achan who had brought this sin into the camp.
Ambushing the Lies with the Truth
Obviously, without getting into the historical detail of this conquest by the hand of the Lord, there are
several principles to be gleaned from this story that I believe the Lord wants to be brought to the forefront.
So, let’s look at a few of them.
First, in the 21 st century, the Lord has put into play a very similar strategy in fighting the final battle for
See: Final Battle for Humanity
This battle for humanity is rooted in those who seek to change the world order into their own image of
failed ideologies . They are enemies of God (i.e., of the cross) and humanity itself. Their desires are
nefariously evil as they seek to make the human race into something that is best described as sub-human
or to evolve it into something that is no longer human . In either case, the result is to create something
that is contrary to Elohim’s design of the race that came through Adam and has been rescued through the
last Adam, the second man, the Son of God. In the beginning, Elohim created man to be in His image and
likeness. In other words, all of us were created to be imaging Elohim—who, by the way, is love.
See: Truth Under Siege
Looking over the landscape of the world today, we might wonder how we have gotten to this point where
evil manifesting in an unseemly derangement of minds seems to be so rampant and, frankly, in your face.
How could such a thing happen so quickly? Well, it did because the strategy of evil has been to infiltrate
the institutions of the world (e.g., government, economics, finances, education, science, medicine,
corporations, culture, etc.)—gradually inculcating successive generations with a global agenda based in
ideologies determined to control the masses without due regard to what it means to be human in the
image of Elohim. Like leaven, this evil that rejects the one true God as our Creator has been doing what it
does best—that is, leaven or corrupt what is in view until the entire thing is corrupted. This is the day in
which we live.
The sad truth is that most of the world, and especially that which many call the church have been asleep
to this reality. The leaven has been allowed to grow unhindered as the world and the public church slept.
Oh, yes, there have been grumblings about this leaven, but it has never risen to the point of demanding it
must go or else. Much could be said along this line, but I’ll leave it because those with discerning spirits
know to what I am referring.
The point is that the enemies of God’s kingdom (and all associated with it) are putting the final
components of their strategy into play. For decades, these enemies stayed in the shadows, so to speak,
step by step infiltrating the institutions, but no longer are they in hiding. Rather, they have come out of
hiding and into the public square, revealing who they are and what they intend to implement globally.
But here is the good news. These enemies have fallen into the trap set by the Lord. In their coming out
and revealing their true deranged nature, the Lord is leading them into His ambush, just like Ai was tricked
to come out of the city, which was filled with evil.
See: Fulness of My Anointing in Midst of Evil
Ambushing the Lies with the Truth
By drawing these enemies out into the open, the Lord is going to expose their darkness with His light. Put
another way: the Lord is going to expose their lies and falsehoods with truth. Once exposed, they will have
no city to retreat to, nowhere to run.
Second, those of us who belong to the Lord as His conquerors might appear much like Joshua’s company
fleeing by way of the wilderness, as if facing defeat (Joshua 8:15). But, oh, to the contrary! Remember;
Joshua is a type of Yeshua-Jesus . We are victorious in the Victor! Let the enemies of the cross of Jesus
think they have the upper hand. All is well; the Lord’s hand is in this battle and He has no defeat. Our
greatest (His greatest) victory since Calvary and the Lord’s ascension is on the horizon.
Going along with this is a word that came to me through a dream in 2012. There is more to this word, so
you are once again encouraged to read this insight. Here is an excerpt from this posting that is a word to
the Lord’s conquerors.
Look not to the left or the right. Straight is the way for the one who is making ready the way of
the Lord, for the one crying out in the wilderness. Cry out, 'The kingdom of our Lord is coming.' Do
not be moved. … Henceforth, your path is My path. You are on My highway in the wilderness.
People will come to you in the wilderness. It must be so because the city is filled with every form
of evil and unclean spirit. Great deception and confusion and lies and evil fill the city. Blindness
abounds. Corruption and defilement prevail.
See: Wave Crashing on White Rock
The city of Ai signifies the city of those in rebellion against God’s kingdom and His king. The day is coming
when these rebels will be cut off from their city, which is simply a way of saying they will be cut off from
their strategy and agenda of evil. Their corruption and lies have blinded them into believing that their
victory is at hand and no one can stop them. Got news for them: they are being ripened for the ambush
of truth, and it won’t be long until the trap is fully set. So, let them rise up in all their arrogance, for we
know full well that King Jesus with eyes like flames of fire is in this battle.
Don’t be persuaded otherwise; truth is not on the ropes, so to speak. The Lord is drawing them out of
their shadows (cities of evil) and into the wilderness where their lies and falsehoods will be exposed to
truth and roundly defeated with the Light of the world. What a strategy—ambush them with the Truth!
Third, there is much to be gleaned from the word Ai itself. Ai means crooked, heap of ruin . This is the
future state of the cities of the rebels of the world system of our day.
Now, fast forward and what does AI (capitalized) stand for in our day? AI = Artificial Intelligence . I
mentioned this in Truth Under Seige in relation to transhumanism and technocratism where AI becomes
man’s new god, even to the point of replacing man altogether. The upshot is that man thinks he can
replace God-given intelligence with intelligence built around 0s and 1s that can process information faster
and more accurately and precisely than the human brain.
Of course, this leads to a philosophical question pertaining to the true nature of intelligence. Is the word
intelligence even appropriate for something man creates and calls artificial ? Artificial refers to something
manmade— an imitation of something real . It reminds me of artificial sweeteners. They might give the
sensation of sugar, but they are not sugar. As one who loves ice cream, I never eat ice cream with artificial
Ambushing the Lies with the Truth
sweeteners because they ruin the flavor. To me, it’s like removing all the fat out of ice cream. It’s just not
the same. The same could be said about the new meatless products artificially composed to resemble
beef or chicken. These might taste the same, but they contain so many highly-processed ingredients, one
has to wonder how healthy these new-age products truly are. The point is that anything artificial is not
the real thing; something is missing or, worse, something is added that might be dangerous.
Perhaps on some level, AI has value that offers something the human brain does not, but can it replace
consciousness and what is called the heart of man, rooted in God’s love and spirit ? No way!
Consequently, regardless of how much AI might be able to accomplish, it will still be artificial and fall short
of God’s intelligence that has consciousness and heart.
Fourth, with the Lord’s victory over Ai, Joshua gathered all of Israel together to remind them of the truth.
There was not a word of all that Moses commanded (the law) that Joshua did not read before all the
assembly of Israel (Joshua 8:35). Were not Moses’ commands the truth of God? Of course! Today, we have
the word of God that is being written on our hearts and in our minds. But a point I repeatedly make is that
this is much more than print we read. We have the ingenerate word , which is none other than Christ Jesus
Himself being written in us. Stated another way, we have the very source and origin of life implanted in
us that is growing until we are fully complete in Him, as a one new man, a new creation. Jesus is the
ingenerate word, which is the Truth. I am the Truth! This is why it is vital that we know the spirit of truth
within us that is our anointing that teaches us all things.
See: Jesus—the Ingenerate Word
Lastly, we need to be cognizant of the Lord’s opening words to Joshua: Do not fear and do not be
dismayed . If we allow it, there is much to fear and be dismayed over in these evil days of chaotic confusion,
tumult, and upheaval, even judgment. The definition of dismay is to make afraid or discouraged at the
prospect of danger or trouble; fill with apprehension or alarm .
There is no fear in judgment. Why? Because we are being perfected in love by our God is love , even in
the midst of troubles.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or
famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the
day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” But in all these troubles we have complete
victory [ more than conquerors] through God, who has shown His love for us. For I am sure that
neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor
height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39)
Let’s run to the wilderness of this world system and let the ambush begin. Be of good courage — the Truth
has won the battle for humanity. A glorious day is coming when our Joshua-Jesus ushers us into His
Presence and speaks His words of love to us. The troubles of today will be gone, never to be raised again.
The dark clouds will roll away and the sons of God’s kingdom will shine brightly. What joy there will be in
that day!
