On March 1, 2022 America's oldest National Park celebrated it's 150th anniversary. A few weeks later Yellowstone experienced a 500 year flood during it's jubilee year. The June 2022 Yellowstone flood was labeled "catastrophic," "unprecedented," "historic," "devastating," "extreme," "a 1 in 500 year event" by news outlets throughout the United States. As we unpack this historic weather event a hidden message unfolds about the cleansing of America.
The flood of the Bible was God's judgement on the iniquitous creation. He cleansed the Earth via the flood and restored humanity through His righteous ones: Noah and his family.
"Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth." Genesis 6:11-13
Of course, God promised never to destroy the earth via a flood again and the rainbow is our reminder. Yellowstone National Park is a representation of the United States and this flood event speaks to the iniquity of our nation being addressed. In the natural, floods wash and reform the land. The same can be said for what is happening to the spiritual state of our country.
What Really Happened
While I was aware of the flooding in June, I was not especially tuned into the timing or significance while it was happening. Two months later on August 16, 2022, as I scrolled through YouTube a suggested video caught my attention: "What Really Happened During the Yellowstone Park Flood?" That sufficiently piqued my interest.
This clip takes a scientific looks at "what really happened" but we are searching out the prophetic message to find out what really, REALLY happened. The video explains that the magnitude of the rain that fell on June 12, 2022 was unexpected. The volume of precipitation falling on and melting the existing snow resulted in the "unprecedented" flooding. The word "unprecedented" has been used a lot in the last 2 plus years. I have always said that it is an indication that God, Himself, is about to do something unprecedented.
Moses & Mt. Sinai
Time and seasons are very important on God's calendar. After researching, I found out that the Yellowstone flooding started on the 13th of Sivan on the Hebrew or "Biblical" calendar. The following is commentary from the Jewish faith site Chabad.org describing Moses' encounter with God on Mount Sinai on the same date:
"Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain...for six days. On the seventh day God called to Moses from within the cloud... And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the top of the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights" (Exodus 24:15-18). On the morrow of the giving of the Ten Commandments Moses ascended Mount Sinai in order to receive from God the remainder of the Torah -- the remaining commandments and the Oral Law. After being "cleansed" by the cloud for six days, he was ushered into the presence of God on the 13th of Sivan.
The keyword here is "cleansed." Moses was cleansed then entered into the presence or glory of God. Many have prophesied the coming glory of God in our time. We have been expecting a move of the Holy Spirit to cleanse our land. The Yellowstone flood is a prescient reminder of what is about to happen as a spiritual flood covers the Earth. "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea." Habakkuk 2:14
Noah & Mt. Ararat
On June 16, 2022 it was reported that the Yellowstone River was receding and the Billings River flood warning was cancelled. Back to the Hebrew calendar and we find that the date is the 17th of Sivan. What significant event happened on this day in the Bible? How about the Noah's Ark resting on Mount Ararat?
Chabad.org: Seven months after the beginning of the Great Flood, and 17 days after the waters covering the earth began to subside, the Ark sheltering Noah, his family, and members of all animal species came to rest on the summit of Mount Ararat.
Noah means "rest." The Ark rested on Ararat which means "the curse reversed." After the destructive yet reforming flood, expect rest to come on our nation because the curse has been reversed. What curse you may ask? On June 22, 2022 after 10 days of closure Yellowstone reopened. Two days later Roe v. Wade was reversed. I think that fits.
By the way, June 22 is also the 23rd of Sivan which is the day that Haman's decree to "... kill and annihilate all the Jews—young and old, women and children—on a single day" (Esther 3:13) was essentially "reversed." Mordecai wrote a counteracting decree allowing the Jews to defend themselves from Haman's order that was official law. It is rather interesting that the evil decree of Haman mentioned women and children specifically. The same spirit behind abortion on demand attacking women and children in America was also empowering Haman.
Here's a reminder of what God says about abortion or child sacrifice:
"The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech." Leviticus 20:1-5
America has been suffering from God "turning His face against us" over the past 49 years of Roe v. Wade. But our Father is merciful and longsuffering, hearing the prayers of His people the curse has been reversed! Remember a jubilee year is reset of the land. During Yellowstone's reset year we see a historic flood coinciding with a historic reset of Roe v. Wade ... on it's jubilee year.
Since 2018 the drama Yellowstone has been a popular tv series on Paramount+. The following is the premise from IMDB.com: Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders - land developers, an Indian reservation, and America's first National Park.
You are probably aware of the border issues America has faced in recent years. Often children have been caught in the middle of the political drama that has taken place over differing policies. Once again the natural speaks of the spiritual. The spiritual borders of America have been broken down and it has been devastating to the most innocent among us -- the unborn children. Good news -- the spiritual borders are being rebuilt!
The flood of 2022 resulted in the banks or "borders" of the rivers in Yellowstone to overrun. Some created new paths of water flow due to landslides. Due to the flood some old roads have been washed away. The banks were not able to contain the power of the river. This reminds us that the River of Life pouring from the Throne of God is uncontainable, as well. Some old pathways the enemy has traversed across our land have been destroyed. Now a highway called the Way of Holiness is being constructed. (Isaiah 35:8)
Get Ready for Rain
In my previous post, Sound the Alarm, I pointed out the call to repentance in Joel 2. For those who have not, it is time to return to our God who is gracious and merciful. It is time to pursue holiness. In Joel 2:18, it says "the Lord became jealous for his land and had pity on his people." Undoubtedly, He has poured out His mercy on our land. America is definitely His land. We are in covenant with Him and He does not back out of His promises.
Even more Good News:
“Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before." Joel 2:23
Get ready for an abundance of rain. Get ready for an outpouring. Get ready for the flood.
