Shalom Friends and Fellow Warriors,

One of the main purposes the Lord of the Armies of Heaven has raised up this digital ministry of Early Morning Manna is to give you accurate and precise reconnaissance to serve and please Him in the combat sector you have been planted in. Let us make no mistake about it, we are not in a minuscule war of attrition (i.e. terrorism) in our civilization that momentarily inconveniences our contemporary lifestyles…no, rather we are in the final battle of time against the forces of satanic evil being unleashed upon the earth because they know their time is short! Even so, in my extensive travels throughout the nations, I have still not yet seen a radical call to arms being trumpeted to match and thus counter the satanic urgency now being displayed in world events. Why? As I have been saying for almost 14 years now, it can be simply summed up that God has sent a spirit of delusion upon His house to systematically weed out those who are not lovers of truth and honesty…so that He can share His glory with those who really are His (2 Thess. 2). This is very sobering and we must audit ourselves to listen to the sound of the trumpet lest we too get caught up in the greatest apostasy that is now being seen in the history of planet earth!

An effective way to audit ourselves into action can be seen by what is now happening in the Spirit realm and the ongoing theophanies from that realm that are now visiting believers who are answering this call to battle. This battle is not just about the microcosm in which you live, but is on a grand macro scale and can only be effectively viewed by understanding the morning star light of the Scriptures. The most accurate light we can have at the end of this dark night hour is the light of God’s glory from the Hebrew prophets. This is exactly what the Apostle Peter at the end of His life guided us towards so we could maintain the faith, stay the course, and thus avoid the deluge of false teachers and false prophets of these last days. Take some time and read 2 Peter 1 and notice that it is the Scriptures of the Hebrew prophets (7th and 8th Century BC) that make up the bulk of the last day apocalyptic grand finale directions for God’s warrior generation and not just the book of Revelation alone. And one of the tricks of the enemy, who used to be called the “star of the morning” in Isaiah 14, is to get believers only reading Matthew to Revelation and thus be hoodwinked to believe everything written before…is really just “Old” Testament. What is good for the Apostle Peter is also good for you and me…so if he says we need to be following the Morning Star light, not just the transfiguration of Jesus on the mountain top, but also the Old Testament prophets…then I would have to say that those who minimize these writings are actually the tools of satan to hamstring us in this battle! Watch out for the disinformation being communicated that the Old Testament is “Old” and that we only need the New Testament redemption message (i.e. Matthew –Revelation) because of the finished work of the Cross! The finished work of the Cross is not the end-in-all message…it also must be linked with the return of Messiah, salvation of Israel, and the redemption of these mortal bodies…with the bulk of these topics only found in the Scriptures of the Hebrew Prophets! With this type of false self-centered teaching going on no wonder so many people are becoming shipwrecked in their faith and do not see the importance of Israel in these last days and are leaning towards appeasement with Islam instead of confronting its demonic roots with tactical spiritual exploits!

Dear fellow warriors, we must not underestimate the war that we are now facing and the urgent need to fight the good fight of faith in this late hour. Ponder these points of entry the enemy is gaining into our modern Western “Churchianity” by our compromise with evil.

  1. The apostasy and falling away is now accelerating very quickly. The love of many believers is waxing cold and the love of self is at an all-time high. (Matthew 24)
  2. God is thus pouring out His Spirit to not only refresh His army but also to delude and blind those who do not love honesty. (2 Thess. 2)
  3. The nations are beginning to rally like never before against Jerusalem and Israel. People are being drip-fed the toxic assertion that, were it not for Israel, ours would be a peaceful world…and this has come to a much more dangerous worldwide level than that of pre-WWII society. (Zech. 12)
  4. The enemy knows his time is short and is thus unleashing his “final solution” against Israel known as terrorism or “the fear of death”. (Hebrews 2)
  5. The enemy’s greatest immediate fear he is combating is the coming awakening of the Jewish remnant to the true Messiahship of Jesus. A resurrection of the dry bones! (Romans 11)
  6. There are two stealth inroads of disinformation that the enemy is wickedly using to keep Jewish people from hearing the true gospel message. A) Gentile believers pride and ignorance of the Hebrew Scriptures that make them think they are the true “Israel” today. B) And Gentile believers fear to preach Jesus to the Jewish people but rather succumb to UN style political alliance making. This is also due to the “dual covenant” heresy that many Christian Zionist leaders secretly embrace and do not want you to know about!
  7. It is in this environment we see the enemy working overtime to keep the glory of God that is released in the bold proclamation of the gospel message from being seen by the veiled Jewish people. (2 Cor. 4) It is a wicked war being fought in the heavens and many believers I have met are so under the cares of life they have thrown in the towel and just don’t want to fight anymore! Get up and shake off the dust and get back into the fight not just for your country but also for Israel! Lift up your heads and start looking Eastward!!!!

It is in this dark and depraved environment that the Lord of the Armies of Heaven is beginning a new thing and is stealthily doing His own reconnaissance for the mysterious break out that all of us true warriors are longing for. The first thing we see in prelude to this breakout is the patrolling band of the NIGHT RIDERS in the Hebrew Scriptures exploiting this darkness to do an end-run on the enemy. Let us now examine this exciting Scriptural phenomena that is always in sync with the Jewish people returning back to their ancient homeland.

On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo, as follows: I saw at night, and behold, a man was riding on a red horse, and he was standing among the myrtle trees which were in the ravine, with red, sorrel and white horses behind him.

Then I said, “My lord, what are these?” And the angel who was speaking with me said to me, “I will show you what these are.”

And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, “These are those whom the LORD has sent to patrol the earth.”

So they answered the angel of the LORD who was standing among the myrtle trees and said, “We have patrolled the earth, and behold, all the earth is peaceful and quiet.”

Then the angel of the LORD said, “O LORD of hosts, how long will You have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been indignant these seventy years?”

The LORD answered the angel who was speaking with me with gracious words, comforting words. So the angel who was speaking with me said to me, “Proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, “I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion.

“But I am very angry with the nations who are at ease; for while I was only a little angry, they furthered the disaster.”

‘Therefore thus says the LORD, “I will return to Jerusalem with compassion; My house will be built in it,” declares the LORD of hosts, “and a measuring line will be stretched over Jerusalem.”‘

“Again, proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, “My cities will again overflow with prosperity, and the LORD will again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem.”‘” (Zechariah 1:7-17 NASB)

Look at these very important macro trends found exclusively in Zechariah

  1. Whenever a new thing is happening in God’s economy there is tremendous angelic activity that becomes evident not just with the ancient return of the Jewish people back from Babylon but even in today’s aliyah process.
  2. The prophet sees a recon patrol of heavenly Night Riders hiding among the trees that would go out and patrol the earth. Notice that these beings are not angels but heavenly Night Riders who whole existence is to range to and fro throughout the whole earth looking for radical believers.
  3. These Night Riders are not the only ones roaming at night because we see in the Scriptures that even satan patrols to and fro in the same way in Job 1:7. This same phrase is also used of God’s eyes ranging to and fro throughout the earth in 2 Chron. 16:9 to strongly support those whose heart is blameless and completely sold out to Him. Thus we can see that these Night Riders are in recon to strongly assist God’s people whose hearts are blameless and single-minded. While satan is also roaming at night looking to take out the blamless Job’s and accuse them before the throne of God!
  4. These heavenly beings are looking for something very specific that is not just for our own self-centered lifestyles. The reason these spiritual beings are doing reconnaissance is because they are not looking for the earth to be silent, peaceful, and quiet (that is what many think God wants)…but rather they are looking for those upon the earth that are secretly stirring themselves up for violence and war in the Spirit to lay a hold of past prophetic words that have not yet been fulfilled! (Remember that prophetic words uttered from God have a tremendously long shelf life)!
  5. The context of this event is that these Night Riders are looking for the secret intercessors who know by the Spirit that the 70 year Babylonian captivity and then subsequent release of the Jewish people back to Jerusalem uttered by the prophet Jeremiah is at hand! The time for its fulfillment had come and God is sending out nightly reconnaissance patrols (i.e. Night Riders) to not find the earth peaceful and quiet, but rather to look for those who were steadfastly crying out for Jerusalem’s’ restorative prophetic fulfillment as was uttered 70 years ago by Jeremiah (Jer. 29:7-14) . And reading the awesome results of what happened later can be summed up in a nutshell by reading Psalm 126!
  6. Hmmm…This brings up a whole new dimension for pre-dawn prayer meetings and the potential unseen visitors we could be entertaining! …And the enemy we must be vigilant against….

In May of 2003, I previously wrote, “I have been sensing tremendous angelic activity during this predawn time period and have been waken up very powerfully each morning before the sunrise. Could we (the Body of Messiah) be in a tremendous transitional time period in God’s economy of the last days that warrants us to be crying out like never before for the fulfillment of prophetic words of international and personal prophetic importance that have been in a seemingly holding pattern of unfulfillment? And that God is right now looking for those who will not fall asleep because of sorrow (like the disciples did during Jesus hour of testing in the garden that night), but rather will awake and align our prayers with his rapidly approaching timetable? I truly believe this is the season that has now dawned upon us all and I will be following through with much more personal early morning positioning activity! Glory to God! This early morning stuff is really getting fun and exhilarating! Go for it (Him) dear friends!” (The Patrol of the Earth, EMM 5/15/03)

And what happened during this time? This is exactly when God spoke to me to initiate Operation Imminent Trumpet and take on terrorism! And what incredible success and signs and wonders have broken out since then! So could it be again now several years later that we are sensing these same Night Riders doing recon as we are stirring ourselves not to just support Israel with counter-terror ops, but now to fight the rulers of the underworld here in a new expanded authority of unprecedented displays of glory and power!!!!  I have never felt such angelic activity as I do now living here and seeing firsthand the rise of the Prince of Persia (Iran) it’s quick supernatural engulfment of the Arab nations surrounding us. There is a supernatural “revival” of the Islamic world happening here that sophisticated modern weapons and computer systems cannot predict, stop or even track. It is time for all of us to rise up and get on the ramparts with the watchers of the night that are patrolling the earth looking for the stirrings of His bond servants/handmaidens to meet them for this glorious battle at hand.

This is why I have been unceasingly preaching holiness and right living.  This is why I have  unceasingly been preparing His warriors for this battle against the terrors of the night.  This is why I have personally focused my mind and earthly temple for hardship per endurance training (i.e. Ironman events).  This is why I have been unrelenting in taking all these lifestyle changes and focusing on this upward call of PS 68!  I’m hearing the shofars of war sounding calling us all up higher as is seen in Revelation 4!

The Night Riders are amongst us again and they are signaling it is time for His new thing on the earth to be unveiled!

In His service for your faith,

Scott and Dalit
