What if” is all taken care of.  You belong to Me sweet one, not the devil.  He’s got limits.  His boundaries are being pushed back. 


I saw a little thoroughbred colt was just standing up and someone was leading him by the reigns to walk him.  This scene took place at the end of a river where it was flowing onto the beach area.  I was on the beach looking up the river and it appeared like the river was the mouth of a river, or it beginning as in flowing out.  But what I saw was that the river had run its course and this was its final stretch and had reached the ocean.  In the vision since the river appeared like it was the mouth or beginning, but actually at the end, I wondered if the pony had just been born.  But he looked a bit taller than a new born and with more muscles than a new born colt.  Then still at the river scene, a very strong wind came and I saw it blow away some black birds that I felt were unclean birds. 


I witnessed very strong conformational signs of the above vision the next day in the playing out of two races, the Kentucky Derby and The Woodford Reserve Turf Classic at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky.


The horse that won the Kentucky Derby’s name means Twig.  He was ridden by a jockey whose names means hammer and battle / sword.  His trainers name means dark water, dark stream, or from the dark river and grandson or descendant.


In the race right before the Derby, there was much spiritual battle going on with the race right before it.  That was the strong wind I saw blowing away the black birds (ravens.)  You can read its amazing events below. 



I have never watched it before and we turned tv off a long time ago.  A friend mentioned she wanted to watch the race to see the cool hats people wore (!!) and when I went on facebook I noticed it was live feed via computer so I clicked on it and watched it. 


I remembered that the Lord used Secretariat, the race horse with the 22 pound heart as His sign in the earth.  And I knew God spoke to Bob Jones about different sports events and the teams that would win. 


When I saw things that were quickened in the 2 races I knew they were His signs He was planting.  Signs that are intended as Words for the entire world, are usually tangible parables/ signs that the entire world views as literal events taking place in the earth.



Nyquist won the 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby.  He started fastest, held back to let Danzing Candy to overtake.  Then he pulled ahead at the end.  Exaggerator finished second while Gun Runner, who briefly led, finished third.


The name Nyquist is Swedish meaning, “little twig.”  As I discovered this it was strongly quickened to me about the branch of Jesse growing up.  This is the little colt vision I saw the night before.


The word “ROD” in the following Hebrew verse means A TWIG.


Isa 11:1 NKJV 
There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.


Isa 11:1-2 
There shall come forth a Rod {2415} from the stem of Jesse, 
And a Branch {5342} shall grow out of his roots. 
The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, 
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, 
The Spirit of counsel and might, 
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. 


OT:2415 choter (kho'-ter); from an unused root of uncertain signification; a twig
KJV - rod. 

OT:5342 netser (nay'-tser); from OT:5341 in the sense of greenness as a striking color; a shoot; figuratively, a descendant: 
KJV - branch.


The news shared a story that it was a team effort working for Nyquist, where the 3 of them had regular meetings in the owner’s office regarding strategy and care for Nyquist.  (The owner, the trainer and the jockey.)  The unity behind Nyquist’s win was  quickened to me and I felt impressed to look up their names.  Many times the Lord will quicken people’s names as prophetic signs to my hearing ears.


The jockey’s name means:

Mario – Latin name meaning hammer

Gutierrez  - possibly from a Spanish name meaning battle and sword.


Jeremiah 23:28-29 The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? says the LORD. 29 Is not my word like a fire? says the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?


It was quickened to me when they interviewed the jockey that he said he was riding Nyquist since he was just 2 years old.  (The name Nyquist means A TWIG)


The trainer’s name means:

Doug meaning dark water, dark stream, or from the dark river.


Remember my vision the night before the race of seeing a little pony at the mouth of the end of a river after the river had run its course.


O'Neill is a combination of names meaning grandson, descendant, cloud, passionate, champion.


The owner’s name means:

Paul – Roman name meaning small or humble

Reddam – I could not find the meaning of this name.


On the same day at the same track, they had another race just prior to the Kentucky Derby.  In my vision there was a strong wind that blew away the unclean birds, which in my interpretation represented witchcraft.  This was also confirmed in that race, called The Woodford Reserve Turf Classic.



Grand Tito, was scratched before the race even began after a piece of a roof flew off and hit him duringgusting winds and a pelting rain storm in Louisville.  After that they took him to his stall to quiet him down, and then he bumped his head and the trainer also bumped his head.  The name Tito means giant in Spanish.


On the final stretch the horse named Kasaqui tripped causing another horse named Tourist to fall over. Both Jockeys flew off as their horses hit the ground hard. 


I felt this was all very spiritual as in demonic stuff.  I was surprised when I looked at the news to look up the horses names, that a headline said,


SPIRITUAL PARABLE/ SIGN:  Right before the 2 horses tripped, it was quickened to me that MidnightStorm was number one for quite a while and then World Approval, then Divisadero pulled forward past both horses and won. 


His name was strongly quickened to me:  It comes from the Spanish word “divisadero” meaning a point from which one can look far on the top of a hill.  I was reminded that the Lord has called us watchmen, and tell us to be sober and watchful.


INTERPRETATION:  Grant Tito (the Nephlihim giant which many prophets are saying will come out in the last days tribulation) is struck in the head twice and didnt enter race.  Kasaui and Tourist are out.  Even though the midnight storm and wordly approval were leading the way for a season, those who are watchful win the race!  Watchman on top of the hill strongly overcomes at the last of the race, he pulls past themidnight storm and the world’s systems to win the victor’s crown.


1 Thessalonians 5:5-7 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that are drunk are drunk in the night.



The cloud of witnesses are shouting with passion as they are watching worldwide events unfold.  In dire circumstances of a midnight storm caused by a wordly culture of approving sin, they will see God’s young thoroughbreds rise up and be counted as champions in the last day race.  They are God’s watchmen, staying alert waiting for the coming of the Lord.


Ignoring the giants of the day, bypassing the storm and overcoming wordly culture, they will leave it all behind them.  Utilizing all their training of being backed by 3 generations of mentors, they will be keeping their eyes on the goal and running to the finish line and complete their race in complete victory.  Go forth rod of Jesse!  Go forth and run your race with courage and tenacity for all of heaven watches you finish in complete victory.


Isaiah 11:1-4 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.


1 Thessalonians 5:5-7 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that are drunk are drunk in the night.
