Pennsylvania, you are My witness who communicates My Ways by poem, song, picture, or book. I put keys of knowledge into your possession, and with this knowledge you do not disappoint. You are a skilled musician of instrument and song. I blow My Wind for your notes and letters to ascend, and send moisture to bring them down to teach the earth. You will prevail unto Me, Pennsylvania, and produce much more. But evil and unclean spirits have embedded into you, which have spread their infection and black disease. Another has also cloaked your skies. Those in you who have nurtured the evil and desire your death, and those without you who condone them, will be killed by the bite of My Copperhead and trampled by the hoofs of My Horse. Be moved, Pennsylvania. Come out of your trance. My labour towards you has been gentle so far; I come now to you to declare My vindication. Thus saith the Holy Lord of Righteousness, Truth, and Song.

More Words to Pennsylvania
June 10, 2020 & August 21, 2020

Pennsylvania. The Keystone State. A keystone is an architectural term for the center stone that is placed at the apex of an arch. It keys (locks) a structure together and keeps the other stones in place. Pennsylvania was given the nickname because it was geographically in the middle of the thirteen colonies and because of its importance in the development of the Unites States. The Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were drafted in Philadelphia. Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was given at the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Spiritually, Pennsylvania is the same. It is a keystone. And it is a beloved state of the Lord.

Father, thank you for Pennsylvania. May all uncleanness be removed from within and around her. May Pennsylvania be holy unto You; and may the desires of wicked men who have long operated in her midst be destroyed.

More words of the Lord to Pennsylvania:
My watchman has sounded the trumpet and all within you have been warned. You will be shaken and shaken again. I will stir you and pass over you to produce new Life in your womb unto Me. I will shake under you. I will shake you from above. As Ezekiel has spoken, “Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul” (Ezekiel 33:4-5).

Pennsylvania is a land and water and misty fog that has been given the ability to understand and express the soul of man. Even more significantly, Pennsylvania has been given the ability to understand and express the soul of God. This makes sense as God, 'Elohim, chose to make man in His own image (Genesis 1:26-27). May our thoughts be clear. May we go into this garden with reverence unto our perfect God. It is a great privilege to understand and know more of Him. Father, thank you that you chose to form us as You are. We pray that Pennsylvania rises to its call.

A dream

The following paragraph is a dream that was given in the early morning of June 10, 2020. It was given from the LORD during a period of time of seeking in prayer and intercession for Pennsylvania. After meditating on the dream while still sleeping, the Lord woke me and spoke that this was the current condition of Pennsylvania.

The dream: There was a mouth with one tooth gone and then many teeth sloughing off and falling down and out on both sides of the mouth. This continued until nothing was left on the gums. There were not even any roots. I handled the falling out teeth and saw that they were very soft, like baby teeth. They were hollow with very thin sides. And when I asked God about them in the dream, He impressed in my mind that even though they looked to be mature initially in the mouth they were actually baby teeth that were just sitting on the gum without root and appearing to be grown. They were baby teeth that should have been gone long ago.

The mouth and teeth speak of many things. We talk and eat with our mouth. Teeth represent the teaching ministry as we are to chew the cud, chew on the Word, in order to be taught or to teach the Word (Leviticus 11:3, Deuteronomy 14:6). We chew to start breaking down food so that it is more easily digested, just as a good teacher breaks down information for us to understand and receive information.

Teeth are also associated with the apostolic ministry. Recall that the teaching psaltery and the apostolic harp are often seen in Scripture playing together. The teaching and apostolic ministry work together in new strong two-edged teeth that tear down our enemies into dust.

13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. 14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. 15 Behold, I will make thee [you into] a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. 16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 41:13-16)

We bare our long canine teeth when we operate as apostolic lions to confront all things contrary to God and His will. The canines are used to open the skin and to tear meat away. In the dream given above, the mouth had no canine teeth.

6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. (Psalm 58:6)

6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. (Joel 1:6)

8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. (The Revelation 9:8)

Grow up!

Pennsylvania, you are admonished to grow-up. The façade of appearing to have adult spiritual teeth when you only had propped up baby teeth has been exposed. And now is the time for a full mouth of spiritual teeth to become nurtured up to perform their tasks to feed your Pennsylvania body. The souls who have lived off of the richness (II Corinthians 8:9) of our Father and do not grow up have been sloughed off. Daryl Hall and John Oates, recorded 1976 and released 1977, “Rich Girl” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmHE65RAkSY.

Thus saith the Lord, My eyes see you Pennsylvania. Your days of being cloaked of living in childhood and adolescence will soon be over. Trash has piled up, and it is long past the time to clean your room.

The coppersmith

Pennsylvania has much history of being a gathering place for planning, initiating, and carrying through on those plans for good and for evil. Wealthy and influential Black and Caucasian secret societies, organizations, clubs associated with higher education (teaching teeth) that extend into government agencies, religious denominations, and also political agendas have flowed out from Pennsylvania. The copperhead worked by the coppersmith has injected a constant dose of venom to bring pain and anguish not only to Pennsylvania, but has spread its venom throughout the country.

14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: 15 Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood [opposed, resisted] our words [logos]. (II Timothy 4:14-15)

The coppersmith is one who resists God’s teaching of His apostolic Word. Instead of allowing God to transform men to be opened free, the coppersmith uses apostolic methods to bridle and control men unto themselves. They fashion horses’ bits made of brass (apostolic) to break men and put them under submission to themselves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5x6XZ-CcKU “Maneater” (1982) by Daryl Hall and John Oates.

Pennsylvania’s state motto of virtue, liberty, and independence has yet to materialize among God’s people because of the evil in her. And just as Paul turned Alexander over to Satan, we do the same today and declare that the snake which worked venom into Pennsylvania since its beginning and now still lives be delivered unto Satan, in the name of Jesus Christ.

19 Holding faith, and a good [virtuous] conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: 20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme. (I Timothy 1:19-20)

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. 22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (II Timothy 2:19-22)

A prayer for Pennsylvania: Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah. As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them (Psalm 140:8-9).

The importance of the Keystone

The Keystone is Jesus Christ. Without Him, there is no stability; there is no anchor for our soul. All things were made by Him (John 1:3) and it is by Him how all things are reconciled to Him (Colossians 1:20). He is the apex of all life. And when the keystone is removed or replaced by an inferior stone the whole structure is weakened and eventually breaks down and falls to the earth. There is no building made, there is no structure that will stand without Him. Pennsylvania, the Keystone state, is the reminder of this to all of America.

1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it; (Psalm 127:1a)

Pennsylvania is given the anointing to express the soul, but it contains within it the acknowledgement of the apex of the arch, Jesus Christ, which provides the canopy and structure for the soul to be free and operate in. It is only by God through Jesus Christ that the soul can flourish without constraint. God understands the things of the soul. He has a soul (Leviticus 26:11, Psalm 11:5, Matthew 12:18, to list just a few). And He provided an anchor for our soul.

17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of His purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, He confirmed it with an oath. 18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 6:17-20, NIV translation)

Psalm 81 is a passage to pray over Pennsylvania. It contains God’s Philadelphia call. May the power of His Word and the desires of God’s will penetrate into Pennsylvania. May the key of David operate by the Holy Spirit in the land, skies, and waters of Pennsylvania (The Revelation 3:7-13). And may Pennsylvania hear and echo back His love for her.

Psalm 81
For the director of music. According to gittith. Of Asaph.

1 Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! 2 Begin the music, strike the timbrel, play the melodious harp and lyre [with the psaltery]. 3 Sound the ram’s horn [trumpet] at the New Moon, and when the moon is full, on the day of our festival [feast]; 4 this is a decree for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob. 5 When God went out against Egypt, He established it as a statute for Joseph. I heard an unknown voice say: 6 “I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket. 7 In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you out of a thundercloud; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. 8 Hear Me, My people, and I will warn you— if you would only listen to Me, Israel! 9 You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not worship any god other than Me. 10 I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. 11 “But My people would not listen to Me; Israel would not submit to Me. 12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices [counsels]. 13 “If My people would only listen to Me, if Israel would only follow My ways, 14 how quickly I would subdue their enemies and turn My hand against their foes! 15 Those who hate the LORD would cringe before Him, and their punishment would last forever. 16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” (NIV translation)

God’s soul

The soul contains our unique personality and character traits. God’s soul is often expressed and manifested by the Holy Spirit. It is as water. It is as the wind. It is fire. And God rejects arrogance from the voice that says, “I know Him,” when His invitation was refused (Matthew 22:1-14). It is in Pennsylvania that the line can be seen where God will and will not allow man to pass without His choosing (Matthew 8:11-12, Luke 14:24, Hebrews 3:17-19). The music of Daryl Hall & John Oates was formed and developed in Pennsylvania and their collection of work expresses well the soul of God and man. The anointed 1981 song "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" written by Daryl Hall & John Oates and Sara Allen describes God’s line that He will not allow crossed without invitation. It is wisdom for all relationships. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSZ6qseXbNU

Scripture tells us:

11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief [disobedience]. 12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner [judging] of the thoughts and intents of the heart13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. (Hebrews 4:11-14)

The Word of God can go deep to divide the soul and the spirit for the purpose to judgingly uncover and reveal the thoughts and intents of the heart. We want Him to search any wrong way in us. And His eyes are “Private Eyes” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3MUQKD_GOE. Without the righteous exposing of our soul, it is like mutilating a flower in order to see if there are any diseases that the flower is harboring. It is the wickedness of man that uncovers to expose. And relationships that do not care righteously and in holiness for the soul of another end up working death and destruction. It is loveless. When we are naked before God, He covers us back up with Himself, just as what should occur between a man and a woman who enjoy marriage. Pennsylvania is given the anointing by the Holy Spirit to righteously reveal and then express the soul. We are able to accept, enjoy, and honour how God has made us because of this anointing.

Father, thank you for Pennsylvania. Thank you that within her are the skills to reveal the soul. May she mature and express Your soul in the knowledge and understanding that You impart to her. In the name of Jesus Christ, who is One with the Father.


When the United States was purposed in God’s thoughts, He established the states to have a variety of His anointings and endowments spread across the land. The states have spiritual connections and relationships to one another. This has allowed the opportunity for each state and individuals within the states to obtain the ministering from different anointings. No one has lacked opportunity to become enriched by their fellow states and the anointings of all. It was designed by God as a prophetic witness and testimony to man and the heavens of how the spiritual tribes operate. There are duets, trios, quartets, and additional combinations that work together when states share borders or are nearby with contrasting or complimentary anointings. An example would be North Dakota, the strongest and most purified teaching state in America, ministers to the strong pastoral state of South Dakota. Connecticut, which is a strong apostolic and teaching state, was given the ability to influence and minister to the evangelistic and pastoral state of Massachusetts and to nearby prophetic New Jersey. In the spirit realm it looks like a beautifully structured textile. The textile is rich in different textures and colors. When the same type of anointing is found in distant states, they share a particular texture and color of cloth. It not only balances the whole textile, but it allows the eye to absorb many colors at one time.

Pennsylvania and Texas are connected. They have the same spiritual color (anointings and endowments) that were given to them by God to honour and celebrate the soul of God and also the soul of man. They have different characteristics and textures of expression, just as siblings from the same family vary. However, they are still of the same cloth and their purposes in serving God and man were ordained to be the same, which is to minister from music, storytelling, art, and theatre the nature of the soul. The mere presence of these states exudes the understanding and the ability to express the soul of man and the soul of God. Both states were given the freedom to move and express the soul by the Spirit of God. Texas was given the ability to open the land by the Spirit to make room and accommodate the soul of man. Pennsylvania can open the waters onto the land to feed the soul of man and God. Both states were ordained for man to walk upon and to produce new things unto the Lord. They are also womb preparers for new spiritual prophetic seeds to grow. Pennsylvania will be preserved and will allow purging of itself; however, Texas will not. Texas will have only minimal and partial restoration as it continues to be broken by God into parts.

The nature of the heart

The heart is where the spirit and the soul merge. God’s spirit and His soul merge in His heart, just as it is in man. The following music is able to capture the soul and the spirit intermingling within the heart. The piece was composed for the piano, and played here by an acoustic guitar. It has the spirit’s sound of Philadelphia’s beckoning call of exhortation, but it also includes the sound of the soul moving and interacting with the spirit. When a soul is righteous and the spirit is purged from evil, it is good; and great communion is experienced. Performed by Jonas Lefvert, “The Heart Asks Pleasure First” composed by Michael Nyman (1993) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjifPQMfTPk&list=RDNsQBKr_x-P4&index=5. And for piano lovers: performed by the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra with Michael Nyman on piano https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toOShA7omUk. Notice that when we hear this song our chest wells up and the heart begins to dance; and our body desires to move also in its flow. Our body follows the lead of what the spirit and soul tell us to do. We are fully engaged. We want to experience the interaction that is taking place between the soul and the spirit. And when God calls us unto Himself, He desires our whole person (I Samuel 12:24, Mark 12:29-30, I Thessalonians 5:23). He desires nothing less.

May we be men after God’s own heart who will perform all of His will (I Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22).
