Thank you for joining us for the next 3 days of review. We have received a strike from YouTube, meaning they are censoring us. They will not allow us to post any
new content for 3 more days. Therefore, we are taking Monday-Thursday of this week to review older, strategic teachings which are needed before I share a new message on Friday, 9/30. I think you’ll enjoy these teachings.
This was recorded in January of this year when Ceci was battling a severe case of vertigo. Just to let you know, she is doing well now, and we thank you for your prayers!
The World Seers Series (Part 2)
First, I apologize for the glitch yesterday, not having the post up in its video form until late morning. Two of my staff members are driving the RV, which we used to bring Ceci home, back to Texas. (She has been battling a severe case of vertigo.) They thought they’d be able to post the “15” while traveling, and they eventually did, but obviously, there was a bit of a glitch. If you missed the post because of this, you will want to look at or watch yesterday’s (1/10/2022) before looking at today’s. And again, I apologize.
Yesterday, I started discussing a dream given to my friend Greg Hood. This is a very enlightening and important dream, filled with insight and revelation. (Though I am taking it in segments, I will post the entire dream at the end of today’s post. I know some of you would like to see the entire dream in one sitting.) And we may go just a little longer than 15 minutes. Please indulge me.
REVIEW OF YESTERDAY
In the first part of the dream a baseball team, comprised of spiritual leaders in the church and representing the Kingdom of God, was playing in the World Seers Series. This was the last game of the series, the 8th inning, we were winning but the score was close, and we were very focused. Then, the Holy Spirit initiated a change of strategy. For many more comments and details, please refer to yesterday’s post.
THE DREAM CONTINUES
“[As it became our turn to bat in the 8th inning,] Dutch shouted, ‘Smith, lead us off!’ [Not the person’s real name.]
“Smith stepped from the dugout, but before making his way to home plate I (Greg) said to him, ‘The ball needs to be hit straight down the first baseline with great force. Your assignment is to remove the hindrance that’s guarding first base.’ As Smith walked toward home plate we could see he was wearing the number 5221 on his jersey.
“He stepped into the batter’s box and the pitcher threw him a curveball. He hit it so hard down the first baseline that the first baseman could not see it coming. It struck him on the side of his neck and incapacitated him. Anger became very evident on the opposing team because now they had no first baseman. The umpire at first base held Smith on first and would not allow him to advance.
“The first base coach instructed Smith to watch the third base coach who would give the sign he needed to steal second. Coaching third base was the Archangel, Gabriel.”
The first batter for us (Smith) in the eighth inning was a very seasoned, wise pastor/teacher from a different stream of the church. As so many words from the Lord have indicated recently, this tells me we must have a movement of unity in the church, with Holy Spirit bringing a great joining of forces.
His jersey number, 5221, is the number of the Greek word in Strong's concordance meaning “to meet or encounter.” The Hebrew word matching this number in Strong’s means “to smite.” Amazingly, these are all definitions of paga, the Hebrew word for intercession. Paga (intercession) has many shades of meaning, as I write in-depth about in my book, Intercessory Prayer. One of its meanings, “to meet or encounter,” can be either a peaceful meeting between two parties OR an encounter to engage one another in battle. Paga (intercession) can actually even mean “to smite.”
There can be no doubt that God is saying the first thing (the first batter, the first baseman) we must do in this season is move in the authority of Christ, in unity with one another, and engage the spiritual forces of darkness through prayer. As the Ekklesia, we must bind and loose, open and close, as we mentioned in yesterday’s post. The new batting “order,” also mentioned yesterday, involves operating in Christ’s Melchizedek Order of priesthood, which includes both priestly and kingly intercession. Priestly intercession is asking God to act; kingly intercession is commanding for Him. We must do both. If we do, we can handle any curve ball (deception; unexpected actions) satan throws at us, smite his spiritual forces with the power of God, and neutralize their plans and activities. Our enemies are not people, they are spiritual forces of darkness. Obviously, satan uses individuals but our focus and attack must be spiritual, not physical.
Gabriel’s help with instructions and timing indicates that if we do as instructed, God will give us angelic support.
MORE OF THE DREAM
“Dutch then said, ‘Jones, you are up. [Again, not the person’s real name.] We need advancement. You know the pitch you are looking for! The guy in left field is expecting you to hit it high and long. Instead, hit it high and short into left field. He won’t be able to adjust his position in time to catch the ball.’
“Jones smiled with a big grin and said, ‘This is what I was built for. I was born to give “left field” problems.’ We could see the number on his jersey as he walked to the batter’s box. He was wearing the number 2388.
Just before the pitcher released the ball, Gabriel gave Smith the sign to steal. He shot from first and stole second base.
“The first pitch to Jones landed just in front of home plate, yet the umpire called it a strike. Jones looked at Dutch, expecting him to challenge the call. Dutch came out of the dugout very quickly and headed toward the umpire with fire in his eyes. He pointed his finger at the umpire and declared, ‘YOU WILL REVERSE THIS CALL AND GIVE BACK THE STRIKE! YOU DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO CHANGE THE STRIKE ZONE!’ The umpire reversed the call immediately. I could tell in the dream that it weakened his authority on the field when Dutch addressed him this way.
“Before stepping back into the batter’s box, Jones looked at the pitcher and said, ‘You don’t have the nerve to throw me my pitch. You don’t have the ability to cause me to miss it. Throw that “cutter” and I will hit it.’ You could see the anger and pride on the pitcher’s face. He drew back and threw Jones his pitch, hard and fast; Jones hit it high and shallow into left field. The left fielder called it [baseball terminology meaning ‘I will catch it - everyone else stay back’), which stopped any of his other teammates from advancing toward the ball. As he ran forward for the ball, he was watching the spin Jones had put on it. This confused him and caused him to trip, missing the ball. When he fell, he dislocated both of his knees and could not stand back up. Jones easily made it to first base. Smith stayed at second.
Jones, the second batter, is a respected prophetic teacher in the body of Christ. He also has great insights regarding business and government. His jersey number in the dream, 2388, is the number of a Hebrew word meaning “to grow strong or to strengthen.”
The body of Christ has grown much stronger in the last few years. We are stronger in worship and prayer. We understand our authority as Christ’s Ekklesia, and we have had all 5 of His ministry gifts and anointings restored to us (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher). There is much more unity among the various streams, even crossing national borders, and this is growing. And I could say more. We are now ready for the next great move of God. We are ready to win, not just play the game.
The umpires were compromised. I believe this is referring to some in the judicial system of America, which often compares itself to umpires. In baseball, umpires don’t make the rules, they simply enforce them, calling balls and strikes, etc. which the league authorities have determined are appropriate. Many judges have used this analogy, including Justice John Roberts during his Supreme Court nomination process.
Obviously, in America, many judges have become ideologues, propagating their ideals and beliefs. They will never admit to doing so, but many of them legislate from the bench. In this dream, they had sided with the other team and were trying to hinder the Ekklesia from winning. We challenged them and demanded they not change the strike zone. We also demanded that they change their ruling. Could this be a reference to Roe versus Wade? It is very telling that when we stood and decreed this, their authority weakened and they reversed the call.
And finally, the “left” fielder became disoriented, fell, and dislocated his knees. I believe this refers to the fact that God is bringing confusion to the forces in our nation that oppose Him: the socialists, atheists, antichrist forces, evil agendas, and, in general, those who do not want God’s influence and ways.
Dislocated knees symbolize weakness and the inability to run. God is about to arise and deal with His enemies. I am not speaking of God hurting people. He loves all people (as we do), including unbelievers, and many will be saved. I am referring to the forces of darkness that oppose Him, including some individuals who have aligned themselves with evil. Even those individuals, however, can experience His love and mercy, if their hearts change. God loves them all.
Pray with me:
Father, You have done much over the last several years to strengthen the church. We have grown in understanding, worship, prayer, and our ability to represent You. Please help us to now rise up and demonstrate this. Bring a greater spirit of unity to us, that we might stand together and represent You as one body.
We pray that we would face the current challenge before us with boldness and courage. We pray that the prayer movement would lay hold of our assignment to meet the powers of darkness, pushing them back, smiting them, forbidding them from taking this nation and delaying Your great harvest. We were born for such a time as this. May we, like Esther, rise and fulfill our destiny.
We exercise our authority and decree over the courts of America, “You will not succeed in any attempts to legislate against the purposes of God and His ways! You will not change America! You will not change the strike zone! And you must reverse Roe versus Wade!”
We decree this and ask these things in Christ’s name. Amen.
We decree that we are a church the gates of hell cannot prevail against!

The World Seers Series Dream
(Dreamed early the morning of January 2, 2022.
By Greg Hood)
As the dream started I could see that we were in a baseball stadium. I knew we were playing on our home field which in the dream was known as Royal Stadium. I also knew that the stadium was located in Washington D.C.
All the seats in the stadium were filled with people. I knew the people in the seats were mostly Americans. A smaller portion of the people were from somewhere I had never heard of. The attendees were there to watch what we knew was the World Seers Series.
Dutch and I coached one of the teams playing in the World Seer’s Series. (Our team was the Election prayer team, and more.) It was the final game in the series and we were ahead. It was our turn to bat. Dutch was the Head Coach of the team. He wrote out a new batting order, and hung it in our dugout for the team to see. The atmosphere in the dugout changed somewhat, with some thinking that the old batting order was better than the order Dutch had rewritten.
We had home-field advantage. It was the bottom of the 8th inning and we were winning. The scoreboard displayed the score of 20 for the opposing team and 22 for our team. I could see clearly on the scoreboard our team name - Kingdom Ekklesia. I could not make out the name of the opposing team; their name was very blurry.
The mood shifted in our dugout as our team made an effort to encourage one another. We knew we were in the last innings of this game and the game was tight. We didn’t take anything for granted now. We focused intensely. We were the underdog, it seemed, and there was great urgency to win this game for the nation.
Dutch shouted, “Smith, lead us off!”
Smith stepped from the dugout, but before making his way to home plate I said to him, “The ball needs to be hit straight down the first baseline with great force. Your assignment is to remove the hindrance that’s guarding first base.” As Smith walked toward home plate we could see he was wearing the number 5221 on his jersey. He stepped into the batter’s box and the pitcher threw him a curveball. He hit it so hard down the first baseline that the first baseman could not see it coming. It struck him on the side of his neck and incapacitated him. Anger became very evident in the opposing team because they now had no first baseman. The umpire at first base held Smith on first and would not allow him to advance.
Ken Malone was coaching first base and begin to speak to Smith. He instructed him to watch the third base coach for he would give the sign he needed to steal second. Coaching third base was the Archangel, Gabriel.
Dutch then said, “Jones, you are up. We need advancement. You know the pitch you are looking for!”
Jones said to Dutch, “I feel a confidence that I have never felt before. The pitcher will not be able to resist throwing me my pitch.”
Before Jones approached the batter’s box I said to him, “The guy in left field is expecting you to hit it high and long. Hit it high and short into left field. He won’t be able to adjust his position in time to catch you out.”
Jones smiled with a big grin and said, “This is what I was built for. I was born to give ‘left field’ problems.” We could see the numbers on his jersey as he walked to the batter’s box. He was wearing the number 2388. Just before the pitcher released the ball, Gabriel gave Smith the sign to steal. Smith shot from first and stole second.
The pitch landed just in front of home plate. The umpire called it a strike. Jones looked at Dutch for the correction. Dutch came out of the dugout very quickly and proceeded toward the umpire with fire in his eyes, and as he pointed his finger at the umpire he declared, “YOU WILL REVERSE THIS CALL AND GIVE IT BACK! YOU DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO CHANGE THE STRIKE ZONE!” The umpire reversed the call immediately. I could tell in the dream that it weakened his authority on the field when Dutch addressed him this way.
Before stepping back into the batter’s box, Jones looked at the pitcher and said, “You don’t have the nerve to throw me my pitch. You don’t have the ability to cause me to miss it. Throw that ‘cutter’ and I will hit it.” You could see the anger and pride on the pitcher’s face. He drew back and threw Jones his pitch. He threw it hard and fast. Jones hit it high and shallow into left field. The left fielder called it which stopped any of his other teammates from advancing toward the ball. The left fielder ran forward for the ball and as he did this he was watching the spin Jones had put on the ball. This confused him and caused him to trip, which caused him to miss the ball. When he fell, he dislocated both of his knees and could not stand back up. Jones easily made it to first base. Smith stayed at second.
Dutch then called from the dugout, “Johnson, you are up!”
Johnson took a bat in her hand and stepped from the dugout and I said to her, “They will position themselves at the wall because they know you can break the home run record with one swing of your bat. I feel you should bunt towards third.”
She replied, “That’s exactly what I was thinking. I have noticed that he does not have the rapidness in his eyes that he thinks he has.” As Johnson stood in the batter’s box we once again could see the number on the jersey. Her number was 4851. The pitcher mocked her as she stood there waiting for the pitch. He threw a fastball high and just outside the corner of the plate missing the strike zone. Johnson stood still. She never even twitched.
Seeing this, Gabriel looked at Smith and gave him the signal to steal third as soon as the pitcher started his next wind-up. The pitcher drew back his arm and as soon as he did, Smith left second base and it was almost as if he just appeared on third. This confused the pitcher as he caught Smith out of the corner of his eye stepping onto third base. He released the ball and it came to the plate again this time, low and just outside the strike zone.
Dutch stepped outside our dugout and motioned to Johnson to come over to him. He leaned into her ear and said, “Let the next two pitches go through. No swinging at what he is throwing. This will give us the strategy we need to win this.” Some thought that Dutch was thinking that the pitcher was done and he did not have any more strikes left in his arm.
Johnson stepped back to the batter’s box and did as Dutch had coached her to do. The next pitch came hard and fast. “STRIKE ONE” the umpire shouted and then laughed. The second pitch came as a change-up pitch and was very slow. “STRIKE TWO!”
Johnson stepped out of the batter’s box and took a deep breath looking back at Coach Dutch. Dutch motioned Johnson back to where he was standing and said, “The count is 2 and 2. We are in the right place to bunt it down the third baseline.”
She approached the plate again and positioned herself. The pitcher released a curveball. Johnson stepped into it and bunted down the third baseline. It caught the third baseman off guard. No one had ever bunted on this pitch before. He moved very slowly and retrieved the ball. He held it in fear that Smith would advance to home plate. Jones easily moved to second and Johnson took first.
Now the bases were loaded.
The coach and the catcher from the other team went out to the pitcher’s mound and began speaking with the pitcher. In the dream, we could tell there was much disagreement among them. It even seemed that the pitcher had authority over the coach of the other team.
As we were watching this, a phone rang in our dugout. Dutch answered it. We could see him looking up and behind home plate into one of the skyboxes as he talked on the phone. He was speaking to our team owner. The owner of the team said to Dutch, “You are to pinch-hit. We have a wicket here to not only win the game but to win big.” He went on to say, “Dutch, you know this pitcher. He has lost big games before. He is not what he has made himself out to be. Be patient and don’t be distracted by what he will throw at you. He wants to get your eyes off the pennant.”
Dutch hung up the phone and said, “Hood, hand me my bat. I’ve been instructed to pinch-hit.” I reached for Dutch’s bat and pulled it from a large wooden communion box that it was locked away in. As I removed it I could see clearly that the bat had inscribed on it Ephesians 1:17. I handed it to Dutch as he said to me, “What direction should I launch the ball?”
I said to Dutch, “Straight for the throat of the pitcher! Remove his voice!”
Dutch replied with a smile on his face, “You know, many will think this is a dirty and illegal move on our part. But what the heck, we won’t allow them to force us to play by their rules anymore. We play ball for the Royals.”
As Dutch walked to the batter’s box I said, “If you hit the mark it will change this game.”
The pitcher approached the batter’s box and as Dutch stepped into it, said to him, “I am here to take you and this weak team out once and for all. You have no hope of making it out of this batter’s box in your right mind. This is my season and you will not steal it from me!”
Dutch stepped up to him, just an inch of his face, and spoke with a firm and bold voice, “I am here to uncover you. Now go back to your perch and throw the ball if you dare!”
As he walked back to the pitcher’s mound we could see his name on the back of his jersey. (Remember thus far in the dream we did not know who he was or who this team was.) Written there was the name, “Zephon.”
He released his first pitch and it was not aimed anywhere close to home plate. It went over the stadium wall behind home plate and hit a bus that was parked in the parking lot. It put a large dent in the back left side of that bus. An alarm sounded with a very distinct sound. We knew this was our Team’s bus. The umpire shouted, “STRIKE ONE!”
The coach came to the pitcher’s mound again and brought the pitcher, Zephon, another baseball glove. It was a left-hander’s glove and an old greasy-looking ball. The pitcher had been pitching right-handed the entire game up until now. He went into his wind-up and released the ball; it flew into the dugout. The umpire shouted, “STRIKE TWO!” The umpire spoke to the pitcher, “You only have one strike left.”
It was at this time in the dream that we noticed the umpire was wearing a white doctor’s-type coat that had the insignia of a Pharmacist on it. Dutch turned to the umpire and said to him, "You are no longer allowed to call this game; we remove you, and Michael will take your place!” (I don’t know who Michael was in the dream but am thinking the angel.) Dutch then turned to the pitcher and said, “Throw your ball. This is your last pitch but not my last ball! I will deliver the third strike to you and your house!”
Zephon threw the ball and Dutch hit it with a powerful swing. The ball went to its mark and struck the throat of the pitcher taking his voice and his strength. Zephon was removed from the game. We knew in the dream the game had changed and this pitcher would never pitch again.
End of Dream
