The Swine Flu Prophecy and Pending Events

“Now a herd of many swine was feeding there on the mountain. So they begged Him that He would permit them to enter them. And He permitted them. Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned.”—Luke 8:32-33
During a prophetic crescendo on a five-city tour, recently, in Southern Oregon and Northern California in the small mountain town of McArthur, California, with Pastors Steve and Delene Black, a very peculiar word came forth as I considered recent global events during an extended worship time. I began to the hear the Lord booming in my spirit and I began to publicly prophesy as the music continued:
“Do you see this swine flu as swine infecting human beings? But I tell you tonight, it’s the swine that should be infected with our deliverance! It’s the swine that should be infected with our deliverance and disease! When Legion was delivered from his demons, it was the swine that carried his demons over the cliff and perished; you will see a sign and a wonder as a great wave of deliverance hits the earth. Even as the enemy has used the swine to infect humans, so I say to you now just the opposite will happen in the Spirit!”
The Scripture in Luke became paramount as this word was being declared, “Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned.” It was not happenchance in Jewish culture that the demons went into the swine and perished. In God’s Law swine were unclean and were forbidden to eat or touch (see Leviticus 11:7). They became the vessels into which Legion’s demons entered and were driven off the ledge and perished. The very object of this current global crisis is a sign of deliverance and freedom in Biblical proportion.
The Power of Opposites: The Joseph Factor
There is much to comprehend in this short Scripture in Luke, Chapter 8. The demons begged Jesus to permit them to enter the swine, which He did. “Then the demons went out of the man…” The unclean spirits went into the unclean animals and both perished in the sea. As these events unfold around the world, there is a spiritual dynamic taking place. Clearly, the Spirit of the Lord is being released during this time to bring deliverance to nations that are in great political, social, and spiritual peril.
Mexico has been gripped in a deadly drug war as the government desperately attempts to regain some semblance of moral control. Drug lords and their henchmen are fighting ruthlessly against any moral and spiritual change. Ultimately, the Spirit of Deliverance is being poured out upon Mexico. In the spiritual landscape of polar opposites, we see the origins of what the world is calling the “swine flu.” In God’s providence it is a divine set-up to lead millions into salvation and deliverance. In such a historic moment, the Joseph factor comes into play. Prayerfully and earnestly read the following Scripture and promise and apply it to these current events:
“But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”—Genesis 50:20
—The end result in God’s plan was not to bring death and destruction, but rather to “save many people alive.”
The law of spiritual opposites begins to play out in the earth; what the devil meant for evil, God’s final intent is to make it good. In Joseph’s time, a time of global famine, the will of God prevailed and raised up a people to “open all the storehouses” and bring deliverance to the nation. You see, this current crisis is really the divine stage set for the “Josephs” or the deliverers to take center stage and SHINE.
This is an unparalleled time to lead millions to Jesus Christ and His salvation. The power of the Cross and the Gospel become second to none in grave times such as these. As what appears to be evil sweeps the globe it also acts as a spiritual siege crashing in the doors of resistance, making way for the preaching of the Gospel, healing and deliverance.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”—Romans 8:28
The Swine are Only a Sign of Pending Revival
“But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.
“But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against Heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”‘
“And he arose and came to his father…”—Luke 15:14-20
The swine were the final “curtain call” for the revival to follow as the prodigal son returned home. As we face famine, pandemic, floods, fires and all other sorts of peril, could it be any other outcome than what we read in the Gospel? Could it be that a great coming home is on the horizon as millions return to Jesus in the backdrop of epic peril? On the Scriptural landscape this was exactly what occurred: “And he arose and came to his father…”
This “arising” is recorded in other prophetic moments in the Bible as well: “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1-2). As this current crisis continues it will only be a line of demarcation for revival, as nations such as Mexico are prepared for sweeping revival. Where you see the swine, remember it is a SIGN of revival soon to follow.
“And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged Him that he might be with Him. However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, ‘Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.’ And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all that Jesus had done for him; and all marveled.”—Mark 5:18-20
Moses in the Wilderness and the Preaching of the Cross
“Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.’ So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.”—Numbers 21:8-9
The very thing that was “meant for evil” now became a symbol of deliverance as Moses lifted up the bronze serpent in the Wilderness. In the same way, the preaching of the Gospel is now more crucial than ever as evil runs rampant. Nations that have been resistant and violent toward the message of Jesus will now look to Him as their only hope. If there has ever been a time to return to the “message of the Cross” it is now as a global stage is set to bring deliverance, healing and salvation.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”—1 Corinthians 1:18
This will be a crossroads for the global Church as well, as it is faced with unprecedented crisis and fear, and faced with a choice to resort to the only visible answer: “The message of the Cross.” It will become to us and the world around us “the power of God” like no other time. Places such as Mexico City, once a place of deep opposition to change, are transformed into a divine stage of massive healing and deliverance as “the demons went out of the man and entered the swine…”
The day of the evangelist has returned as a Spirit of deliverance and salvation is poured out on all flesh. In this crisis it is our shining hour.
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”—(John 3:14-15).
The Blood Bath in Mexico Will Become Blood on the Doorposts
“And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses…”—Exodus 12:7
In Egypt many people perished, and yet God’s Passover was instituted and more were saved. In Mexico, as the very moral fabric seems to be tearing apart, a time of “Passover” will occur. Many cities, villages and regions will become places of salvation and great deliverance. Key leaders, even as the Pharaoh did in Egypt, shall relinquish their control over the people and secede from darkness to the Lord. Entire regions will beseech ministries to come and preach the Gospel as their only recourse in famine, flu and violence. Jesus will be lifted up!
Many of these events will not be publicized even though mighty miracles raise the dead, incomparable in modern history, in areas plagued by current crises. In other cities it will be published on television channels and every means of communication and will sound something like this: “Prayer and preaching will occur at such and such location…city sanctioned prayer meeting today at 12pm…” It will even become mandatory that entire regions attend these meetings to stem the sickness and disease.
Virtually unknown evangelists will be harbingers of great hope and power as the Cross of Jesus Christ is preached. Great evangelists of the past will be replicated a thousand-fold as entire cities become center-stage of a grassroots revival overflowing into every public place with the sheer expectation of what God will do next. Many ministers who have faded from the public eye will now be thrust back into the front lines, re-enlisted as God makes a worldwide call to arms to “fight the good fight of faith.”
Remember, “The swine are only a sign of pending revival…”

People have been trying to predict the end since the beginning (with the Bible or otherwise), since the beginning.
If you believe what the Word says then no one will know the day the Lord returns.
