Foreword To the vision of The Party

Because the dream-vision Jeannette received speaks favorably for President Bush’s reelection to the highest office of the land in the United States of America, it is necessary to preface the vision with this statement. Jeannette and I do not engage in partisan politics. We have consecrated ourselves to speaking whatever our Lord gives us as messages to His church no matter what groups are addressed in the communiqués. We have chosen not to name names unless of course the vision speaks to a head of state which person is known or the head of a religious persuasion such as the Pope. We are only messenger people, and when it comes to speaking for God, it is not the messenger that counts but the message.

In this vision of The Party, the reader could misconstrue the vision and its interpretation as our desire that people support George Bush for the Presidency. If we were engaging in that sort of political activity, we would have started long before the election to put out the word to vote for him. This message was received only four days before the election and it was not released until afterward because it addresses what God’s will is now that the election is over – prayer for the President.

Many websites are dedicated to getting out candidates’ voting records and positional stances. As you can see by our website, we have not written position papers supporting any person in particular for any governmental office. Yet, we are radically biased when it comes to our faith persuasion because salvation is at issue and it involves the eternal fate of the souls of men and women. Since Jesus said that no man comes unto the Father but through Him, we cannot speak otherwise [Acts 4:12; John 14:6].

The Bible teaches that God will judge the world in righteousness at His set time. That is a given. Everything on our website is a Word from the Lord that judgment of the world will come sooner if changes are not made. As human beings created with free wills, we can merely delay judgement such as happened with Nineveh when Jonah preached to that city and it repented. Judgment was delayed approximately 150 years in Nineveh’s case. Other Scriptural examples could be given.

We have purposely waited until after an election before publishing an account of a prophetic visitation if it so relates to an election. This is so that the reader would not think we are promoting one candidate over another. Nevertheless, God does engage in partisan politics and is the ultimate final arbiter of who rules over men.

Daniel 4:17
17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Watchers for God
  There are no permissive tenses in English such as in Hebrew, and this tense was usually translated in the King James Version as a causative tense in English. It, therefore, does not mean that God sets up base or evil men to rule, but rather that He permits them to rule as a result of people’s choices. When people choose wisely, they will elect honorable, moral persons to govern them. Otherwise, they will have what they choose – a corrupt heathenistic society that inevitably ends in destruction. However, God is the overall ruler and will answer men’s cries for mercy and deliverance from corruption whenever people pray for Him to become involved in their lives.
 

The prophetic Words that White Stones Ministries receives from God are primarily words of warning to the church about what will happen if changes are not made forthwith. A vision or dream prophesies what will actually happen only if it has been stated in the Word of God, which does not change and will inevitably come to pass. Even in cases such as these, it is recognized that the prophecy we dispatch is a warning that the Biblical prophesied judgment is about to be enforced and can be annulled by God who can issue a reprieve. We so stated this in the USA Prophecy.

In the USA Prophecy that was issued after the 2000 election, you will find it noted that the Word of God does not hold a son or daughter responsible for their parents’ mistakes. An offspring is judged on his own choices. See the prophecy for an explanation of this in the case of George Bush Sr. and his sons. Hence, President Bush is now being held accountable himself for every decision he makes while in office [Jeremiah 17:10]. It is a awesome thing to be responsible for the fate of a nation. Since it is possible that reigning rulers can mess up and make wrong decisions such as Solomon did, it is incumbent upon God’s people to uphold him in prayer so that he does not fall into error.

This vision came from the throne room of heaven as a mandate for God’s people to pray without ceasing [1 Thessalonians 5:17] for our President because the times are critical, and we must redeem the time for the days are evil [Ephesians 5:16]. This ought to be the policy of every Christian regardless of who sits in the White House as per Paul’s admonition.

1 Timothy 2:1-3
2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2 For kings, and for all that are in authority ; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

 

The reason for praying for governmental leaders and all in office is stated in verse two above, …that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. No matter who is in office, God commands us to pray for them. Had President Bush’s opponent been elected, God would never have issued the vision in this manner, but since God knows all things, He sent this message in advance of the election as testimony to us His approval of this man who won the election.

Has President Bush made errors in judgment? Yes, he has and probably will in the future because no politician can win an election nor keep the peace if he does not compromise on some issues. Will he be held accountable for those choices? Yes, he will – but so will you and I be held accountable for all our errors in judgment. We must look at the overall picture, try to discern things as God sees them, and then act in MERCY as we want God to act toward us.
Thank God, we are not the judges of men’s hearts. We can only inspect the fruit of men’s mouths
[Proverbs 12:14; 18:20] and try to determine who is the best person to rule over us. God knows and will respond to people as they choose to involve Him in their affairs of life. Praise God for His mercy and goodness as He waits patiently for men to turn to Him for direction and guidance. From the vision to follow, it appears that this President is at least seeking to involve God in the affairs of our country.
Because we are in the last days of the end times, we must take Jesus’admonition to be watchful seriously. This involves praying constantly. He indicated that some of His people would become careless and not stay in a prayerful mode of watching for His return. Their house would be broken into and spoiled, and they would miss the rapture.

Matthew 24:42-44
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

The language of the above passage implies that some people would become careless and unwatchful. Without watchfulness, it is easy to fall into the same trap that got this world into the sinful vortex impelling us to judgment. Forgetting to pray for our leaders and neglecting to stay close to God’s Word through Bible study is the pattern for God’s disfavor. Without His favor, we are without power to overcome the forces of evil. Therefore, we must heed the mandate given to us in this vision to pray for our President to make wise decisions as our head. The warning is ever present that our Lord Jesus gave in the above passage of Scripture that if we do not, we will be taken by surprise and our country will be broken up by our adversary the devil.

Keep in mind as you read that this vision is a mandate from God not to be careless, but prayerfully watching for our country.
