THE Fear of God and The BEAR MARKET
3/05/08: This year I received an email with some photos of an
amazing bear rescue that happened in September 2007. As
soon as I saw this I knew it was the Word of the Lord as
it was a confirmation to several Words He had given me
about being divinely rescued.
In the bear story, he was on Rainbow Bridge at Donner
Summit near Truckee, California. Cars were coming at him
in both directions and he became scared and jumped over
the edge of the 100 foot bridge. He was literally
hanging in the balance on a ledge and managed to pull
his 250 pounds up onto the ledge and go to sleep. The
next day help arrived in the form of some compassionate
helpers, a tranquilizer gun and netting. He was safely
planted on the ground 21 hours after the incident.
At the time it was strongly quickened to me because I
had been getting bear rhema, including dreaming of one
in the middle of the road with traffic going in both
directions. Whenever the Lord gives me rhema about
bears, it has always represented the fear of the Lord to
me. Also within a short period of time prior to this, I
had several visions all with the same identical theme:
I saw someone being airlifted by a giant crane and moved
to another place. I saw a whale being air lifted. I
saw a person being catapulted and hurled away from a
flood. Those would be enough, but none of those
compared to the following visionary experience I had
during the same time period.
DIVINE RESCUE: ANGEL OF DELIVERANCE 11/04/07
VISION: I was nestled in the crevice of a very
tall, narrow pinnacle rock overlooking a river. I bent
over a couple inches and looked straight down, to see if
there was a way down and I gulped. No way! So I turned
around and looked straight down the other way and it was
identical. I just stayed put in the crevice because I
knew I was safe as long as I waited on the Lord to
deliver me. Suddenly a deliverance angel showed up. He
was massive, about 3 stories tall. He cradled and
carried me off. In a deep, deep base voice he said, “It
is a pleasure and honor to serve the Lord’s bride.” I
felt very safe even though he was so massive. So I
started asking him a pile of questions and he took much
care in answering each one with a lot of patience and
sincerity. As I listened to him, I knew English was not
his normal language because he spoke with a deep accent.
When I came out of the vision, I laughed delightedly
because I remembered his size, his face, his kindness,
the depth and accent of his voice. But I didnt remember
one question I asked him or any of his answers. That is
SO much like God!
Although the bear Word and all rescue rhema was relevant
for me at the time I now realize that all the Words
about being rescued also apply to the Bear Market we are
facing today in the world economy. It is important that
if you are being directly affected by this in your
personal life, that you stay safely put until the Lord
delivers/moves you. As you call upon Him, He will bring
you the help to carry you to a safer place.
One day as I was in the middle of crying out to the Lord
to be rescued, someone sent me the following photo:
THE BEAR’S PRAYER
To me, the bear has always represented the fear of the
Lord. In the world it is just plain fear. In the Lord,
it is fearful honor of Who He is...that He is Boss and
His Word is True.
As I was pondering this attentive bear sitting at the
table, here is the Word that came to me as the bear’s
“Dear God, I have walked upon the bridge spanning
between the past and the new day. I could not help the
mounting pressure from opposing traffic in the world,
but I can help to do my part to be in the right place
with You. I did not respect Your warnings and could not
make a holy commitment during that span. When I gambled
with presumption in spite of the warnings, I found
myself hanging in the balance, waiting to be divinely
Somehow You heard my cry and help came, and I landed on
my feet. With lessons fresh in memory, wobbly knees and
little strength, I headed straight for Your table.
Having learned my lessons about going outside of Your
scriptural boundaries, I am now waiting at Your table
and ready to eat. I am ready and willing to obey. I
fear You God and I honor Your Word. I am committed to
stay within the boundaries of Your Word and not gamble
against scripture or my conscience any more.”
Amen, go bears!
Heb 12:4-13 NKJV
And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks
to you as to sons: "My son, do not despise the
chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are
rebuked by Him; 6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives." 7 If you
endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for
what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But
if you are without chastening, of which all have become
partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9
Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us,
and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily
be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10
For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed
best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be
partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to
be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless,
afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness
to those who have been trained by it. Therefore
strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble
knees , 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so
that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be
RHEMA 12/08/10 THE BEAR MARKET
HEARD: Dont be caught off guard.
I heard this after hearing Rick Joyner's warning about
the Bear Market.
RICK JOYNER NOTES FROM VIDEOS
2011 is going to be one of the most
challenging years in our lifetime. ... We need to be
prepared for these times.
2011 is going to be a year of incredible
Deep darkness and God's glory.
Isa 60:1-3 NKJV
Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory
of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness
shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But
the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen
upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and
kings to the brightness of your rising.
He is going to double the anointing on the
prophetic this year. Prophetic revelation. It is
because we are going to need that kind of guidance to go
through the times.
You dont have time for that, get your wife
and get your hose. Wife represents the church, the hose
is the pure water of the Word.
The only hope for our country is that the
church wakes up and starts telling the truth.
We are going to have an economic shaking
in 2011 that is going to shake us to the foundations.
It may not come to the place where the dollar melts down
RICK JOYNER: BEAR MARKET POSSIBLY 2011
In this video Rick shares back to back what Bob Jones
said about the stock market and also his friends dream
that was doubled about the Bear Market.
Around 18 minutes into the video:
Rick's prophetic friend had a double dream on Oct 29 and
then again on Oct 30 where he saw a huge bear devouring
people that was a bear market. The bear could swallow a
man whole. The Lord stood beside him and said, "Come
with Me." The Lord showed him the great bear of 1929 as
a trophy. This was a much smaller bear than the one he
saw devouring people. The man who shot the bear shot it
with a gun that had Matt 6:33 and Matt 6:10 engraved on
the gun. The same gun that killed the little one can
kill the big one.
The bear speaks of fear and also bear market. Fear is
what drives bear markets.
Matt 6:33 NKJV
But seek first the kingdom of God and His
righteousness, and all these things shall be added to
Matt 6:10 NKJV
Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it
is in heaven.
Bob came up to Rick on Sunday morning and said, "You
know we are going to the bargain basement, don't you?
The stock market, it's going down." It's going to the
basement, it's going to the low places. But that's
where the bargains are.
Rick said he pulled out everything he had in the market
and is sitting by with cash and ready to invest in the
bargain basement... "I believe we are getting ready for
the most intense year, certainly in our generation, in
2011. We are in for some very intense times."
PRAYER: Lord, this news is very sobering and
disheartening. We earnestly ask and plead that You will
somehow turn the tide of financial meltdown in the world
and USA and bring Your mercy, provision and deliverance
to the situation. Please deliver us from those who
would seek to destroy our Godly freedoms of blessings
and increase and bring the righteous to the forefront to
lead us out of financial bondage, in Jesus Name.
Ps 111:4-6 NKJV
He has made His wonderful works to be remembered; The
Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He has given
food to those who fear Him; He will ever be mindful of
His covenant. He has declared to His people the power
of His works, in giving them the heritage of the
(SPRING OF 1982) vision of RESTORE THE BEAR
I was in a large cave open on both ends like a tunnel
filled with many people. One side of the cave faced a
bleak, rocky steep hill with no vegetation. The other
opened onto the dense greenery of a lovely forest as
though near a mountain stream.
I was on the bleak side and
as I looked out the cave entrance I saw a bear
clambering along the rocky slope appearing to be going
away from camp. I immediately thanked the Lord for
removing the bear from camp!" (I don't like bears -
too many bad experiences with them!) No sooner had I
prayed than I looked and the bear was on the other side
of the cave peering in through the leaves at the
I heard Pastor softly say
to the bear, "Don't be afraid, I want to help you. I
want to restore you." I had a very fast conversation
with the Lord! "Lord, that bear looks like a perfectly
healthy bear to me. Please get him out of here!"
Just after I said the above
I heard the voice of the Lord say very forcibly and loud
to me, "You also
will restore that bear!"
