Prophetic Burros

 

There was a prophetic story on the news about burros coming in from the desert to feed on this four lane highway in the upper desert this weekend.  The people have been feeding them apples, carrots, other fruits, and it’s like a petting zoo on this road up in the high desert.  A man put out a barrel of water, and after couple hours it was empty.

Of course wildlife officials are saying… DON’T feed them, don’t give them water, they can find it on their own.

But I had this feeling it was a sign.

In talking to Bev last night she said that burros will protect the flocks.  If you have cows for example putting a burro with them, the burro will chase after predators like wolves or coyotes.

This stood out to me: “Burros, however, are better than horses when domesticated.  It is believed that they are smarter, more aware, and well capable of fighting off predators.  The problem with these animals is that they seem very sluggish and lazy, but they are quiet and capable of very hard work.  They’re just harder to motivate.”

“Burros are wild horses, or more specifically wild donkeys.  These are hybrid horses born from the mating of jackasses and mares.  The term burros may have originated from the Spanish word borrico, which means donkey, or burricus, which is German for small horse.  These creatures played a major role in opening up the Western United States as they were originally brought in by miners, as pack animals to carry gold and everything else as well.  After the mines were closed, these animals were set free to roam the hills, and so they grew in population.

The burros, which are also known as Equus Asinus, were brought to America by Spanish explorer in the early 16th Century.  As previously mentioned, miners made use of these animals as animals of burden.  This is because burros or donkeys have very strong backs, for their size compared to their much larger relatives.  The burros in the present day are taken care of in National Parks where they are offered for adoption as pets.  The ones that still roam freely in the wild are rounded up the Bureau of Land Management in helicopters and transported to reserves.

The reason behind this is because wild burros destroy ecosystems.  They contaminate water sources with their feces and urine and destroy vegetation by overgrazing, affecting other wild life . They also drink way too much water.  An adult burro drinks approximately 22 liters (5 gallons – number of GRACE) of water a day, as compared to native Sheep which drink 3.8 liters(1 gallon) a day.”  Links to What are Burros and The Burro, Domestic and Wild.

And this I believe relates to those who have been in the desert coming into the fullness of what God has for them, and being those shepherds too that will PROTECT the flocks.  They fight against the enemy & They drink heavy of the Holy Spirit.

Reminds me of intercessors & Joel’s army.

There’s alot more to this… but if you read the above I’m sure God will speak to you. Also makes me think of Word I got for Mexican Americans years back.  Video Link.

 

RESPONSE: Prophetic Burros… 2012-9-9 Bev Juelsgaard Fischer

Burros coming out is also a sign of “The last shall be first“.  Most people look on burros as not important, or “Good enough” but to have a horse is something to talk about!  Many with horses find little value in burros, and will literally “spit” on them, feeling that they are unworthy.

But it was the young burro that Jesus rode on to come into Jerusalem his final time in Jerusalem, as a human.  Many who will come forth in these last days, see themselves as unworthy (like the burro), and many of them have been “spit on” by the body of Christ, because they were strange or different (hybrid, which means there is not another like them, as they cannot reproduce), or didn’t fit the “mold” that others were trying to put them into, they didn’t fit in the “box” of others’ religious ideas of what things were supposed to look like, or be like (burros come in many shapes, sizes and colors and each one is unique!).

These coming out, have been searching for what is right for them, many of them so rejected, beaten up, and desperate, that it will take someone “coercing them with food (kindness, encouragement, hope, deliverance, healing, etc)” before they will come out of hiding.  (Just like the burro, who if given kindness, will respond much more positively when asked to work.  Many, however see burros as stubbon and stupid and will beat upon the burrros to try to manipulate/ intimidate / oppress / force them into working / doing what they want them to do, whether it is right or wrong.  Many of them then respond as they have been treated.  It is the same with humans.  We often respond in the manner that we are treated.

Many of these coming out have literally given up and look to reaching out for the food (just as the burros who have come out of the desert, who are very hungry and very thirsty), as a final hope for them to continue to live or they are at a point of desperation in their lives.  If we give them the food (kindness, encouragement, hope, deliverance, healing, etc) and “water” their spirits with the Word, where needed, then they will rise up as the army that the enemy has been trying to keep from coming forth.  They are literally a “Weapon OMD” that the Lord has had in hiding. For they will utterly destroy the enemy and his works, because of the power and authority they walk in now and will walk in, in the days ahead, due to what they have been through.

Much of what they have gone through will “mirror” the life of Jesus, because much of what they have gone through is horrific in proportions to what an ordinary person / Christian goes through.  They will be first, because they will have sacrificed themselves many times over and will be totally sold out to the Lord.  They will rise up as the new leaders, the “New Breed” that is coming forth across this land and the world.

I keep hearing “We are the Champions” in the background! (despite it being sung by “Queen“)- the Lord will turn / use anything into / for His purposes!
Lyrics:

“We Are The Champions”
I’ve paid my dues –
Time after time –
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime –
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face –
But I’ve come through

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting – till the end –
We are the champions –
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions – of the world –

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls –
You brought me fame and fortuen and everything that goes with it –
I thank you all –

But it’s been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise –
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race –
And I ain’t gonna lose –

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting – till the end –
We are the champions –
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions – of the world.
