California: Signs of Revolution, Reformation & Revival
On July 29, 2018 I awoke to a vision of 2 road signs, I-7 & I-9. I felt it had to do with California, but wasn’t sure until I googled it. There are currently no freeways or highways anywhere in the U.S.A. named I-7 or I-9, but California is planning to re-do Hwy 99 and it will become either I-7 or I-9. Here is the link and info I found on this:
Interstate 7 or Interstate 9 has been proposed by Caltrans for State Route 99 in central California. It would go from the split with I-5 at Wheeler Ridge (Wheeler Ridge Interchange) north through Fresno to Stockton… to connect with I-5, which extends north toward the city of Redding. This also serves as a connector to the existing northern portion of Highway 99. The future Interstate’s prospects for development to appropriate standards are tied to the Caltrans “Route 99 Corridor Enhancement Master Plan“, which outlines improvements to that route, including capacity and physical improvements; this document posits that when and if Interstate status is conferred, the route will be designated either I-7 or I-9. In August 2005, SR 99 from Wheeler Ridge to Stockton and beyond to Sacramento was designated as High Priority Corridor 54, the California Farm-to-Market Corridor; this legislation also designated that corridor as a future segment of the Interstate System.
The Lord then directed me to read Isaiah 7 and Isaiah 9. Although there are wicked rulers coming against the people of God, He reveals (in both Isaiah 7 & 9) His Rule and His government will overcome the darkness.
Isaiah 7:4-15 tells us the Lord will deal with the wicked rulers coming against the people of God.
…and say to him, ‘Take care and be calm, have no fear and do not be fainthearted because of these two stubs of smoldering firebrands, on account of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and the son of Remaliah. Because Aram, with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah, has planned evil against you, saying, “Let us go up against Judah and terrorize it, and make for ourselves a breach in its walls and set up the son of Tabeel as king in the midst of it,” thus says the Lord God: “It shall not stand nor shall it come to pass. For the head of Aram is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin (now within another 65 years Ephraim will be shattered, so that it is no longer a people), and the head of Ephraim is Samaria and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. If you will not believe, you surely shall not last.”’”
The Child Immanuel
Then the Lord spoke again to Ahaz, saying, “Ask a sign for yourself from the Lord your God; make it deep as Sheol or high as heaven.” But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, nor will I test the Lord!” Then he said, “Listen now, O house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will try the patience of my God as well? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel. He will eat curds and honey at the time He knows enough to refuse evil and choose good.
“Rezin” means pleasure and self-will.
“Pekah” from verse 1 (not shown) means opening.
“Aram” means stronghold or fortress.
We see here the Lord is going to send His son Immanuel (God with us, the Messiah, the Christ) to deliver us from living for self-will and pleasure. He shut
s doors opened to the enemy and deliver s us from every stronghold or fortress of evil! He lives in us, making us like Himself – to know enough to refuse evil and choose good.
Immanuel means God is with us in every day life, including in the battle. Isaiah proclaimed His coming and we know He has overcome every place of the enemy. We are thankful He has come, He continues to come, and He is coming again.
The number 7 in the Prophet’s Dictionary, by Paula Price, is defined as meaning the following:
- “The number of divine revolutions and cycles.”
- “The number of Creator dominance that symbolizes world impact and control.”
- “The number of sovereignty and absoluteness.”
Isaiah 9:1-7 is about birthing and Christ’s Government being established.
Birth and Reign of the Prince of Peace
But there will be no more gloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He treated the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make it glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles.
The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness; They will be glad in Your presence As with the gladness of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
For You shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders, The rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian. For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
The number 9 in the Prophet’s Dictionary, by Paula Price, is defined as meaning “The number of gestation, reproduction, and matured development.” In Interpreting Symbols and Types, by Kevin J. Conner, it is defined as meaning “judgment.”
I was born in Merced, which is right on Highway 99, and I have a deep love for California. As I have been waiting upon the Lord for revelation regarding this vision, I found the prophetic significance of Highway 99 becoming either I-7 or I-9 very interesting:
- Jesus left the 99 to look for the 1. He is doing this in California.
- California will come into the promises of God by His hand and His sovereignty.
- California is in another cycle of divine revolution. The Creator is birthing His purposes in the land.
- God is a good Father. His judgments are good BECAUSE He deals with His enemies. He is delivering His children from demonic traps and snares.
- The Lord is breaking the yoke of the enemy. Where self-will and pleasure seeking blinded many, they will SEE the Lord come to them.
- He is establishing His government of peace. The God of Peace will crush Satan under His feet (Romans 16:20)
- The Lord is burning away the yokes of the enemy.
- The Lord is removing strongholds holding many captive, deceived and tumbling into darkness.
I believe the Lord is saying to California, as you turn and seek the Lord, Immanuel will come to you. He is establishing His government to rule, and His zeal will accomplish this. California, as you seek Him, you will come into the fullness of your prophetic destiny. Another cycle of revival, revolution, and reformation will sweep up the Highway 99 corridor and beyond!
In His Peace,
