In 2020, I obtained some understanding that I did not have in 2006.
As there was no real need then, no real connection, to understand what I now record. Hubei is a landlocked province in Central China. Its varied terrain encompasses mountains, lakes and wilderness areas.
Wuhan, is Hubei’s provincial capital and is also now known for the Three Gorges and home to the massive Three Gorges Dam.
Through the Dam in Hubei — the area, that was meant to bring life; is the same area in fact, that brought death — Wuhan; the COVID-19 epicentre.
Here however lies His epicentre, another, of a greater and different birthing by far. For positioned here, is His great gorge and ditch, His womb as it were, through which, the might of His living waters will flow.
Breaking forth with Life and with it’s mighty flow, bring the demolition of each and every, internally constraining and restraining wall.
A mighty flood, released into and from Hubei, that is essentially a central and landlocked province. This reminds me of Noah.
For just as the Ark of God separated Noah from the flood, China, separates herself from Him and the world’s seas, the nations. In order she sail imperiously upon them, unhindered, commandeering the external places, she seeks, solely for herself.
I saw internally, within China, and especially in the centre and the south. I saw the waters within, both rivers and canals, rising rapidly. I saw lock gates “unlocked”, opening and closing with great industry and in increasing frequency.
Opening up the gates as it were, with ‘great shouts’ and the might and sound of an atmosphere of accompanying praise.
I saw His ‘vessels’ being lifted, raised up to greater heights and accessing increasing depths. Resulting in the bursting forth, the running over of both the natural banks and man made breakwaters, as if righteousness were bursting forth, from God’s own ditches flooding the lands.
In the release of God‘s living waters — “But there, the glorious LORD will be, a place of broad rivers and wide canals; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby,” (Isaiah 33:21) — the ‘vessels’ of The LORD shall be lifted and raised, being positioned in readiness for His release.
First internally to China’s own, and externally, influencing the nations, through the eruption of His great springs through His spirit made new within her.
The unseparated grey clad corpses, laying ‘face down’ in the ‘ditch’, is a spiritual sign, of a coming resurrection.
Their ‘grayness’ reminds me of ashes, with the thought, ‘the Phoenix rises from the ashes of death‘. China is that Phoenix.
For in eastern Asia, in China, the Phoenix is thought to reign over all other birds and is paired with the Chinese Dragon. The dragon and phoenix, are symbolic of blissful relations between husband and wife.
The dragon, the Emperor, the Phoenix the Queen. As guardians together of the whole world, reigning over all other birds.
The Dragon and Phoenix, are two of the most powerful Chinese symbols of success and prosperity. With the Phoenix, as a good-luck totem and identified with high virtue and grace.
A 3rd symbol, is China’s own sign of the fish, its own meaning, representing wealth, prosperity and abundance.
Whilst to the Christian, the sign of the great fish in relation to Jonah and Jesus, is a sign of resurrection. China’s focus, her heart and gaze is not on Him, but is upon that which the Phoenix, Dragon and their fish brings them — success, prosperity, wealth and abundance.
Though the Phoenix, is seen as a good luck totem. In truth, it’s not “good luck” that they or anyone else needs, but rather the revelation and working of grace, the gift of life, that is given through the reality of the resurrection of Jesus The Christ, the Son of God, the Son of Man.
